Activist recalls civil rights dream

Elsbeth Smith stands near a French Guianese dugout canoe,
an artifact from her 20 years working and living around the
world on a tugboat

Elsbeth Smith has hours of
videotape from her maritime adven-
tures around the world. But as she
remembered her young adult life,
she admitted that she has only
recently begun to make a written
record of her past as a civil rights
"When you're really young, and
you're living through such an
important time, sometimes you just
don't realize the depth of what's
happening," she said. .
Protests to bring racial and
social equality to African-Americans
were happening all across the
South in 1964. That summer rep-
resented the pinnacle of the civil
rights movement.
Southern states like Mississippi

and Alabama
had been in the
headlines for
Mi e K.months. Now in
Florida, just a

A- e S Augustine
King began to e-
merge as the
focus of nation-
al attention. Civil rights leader Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. was arrest-
ed there in the wake of uprising
and unrest.
At the St. Mary's Missionary
Baptist Church in Lincolnville, a
historic black community in St.
Augustine, Smith joined a crowd
gathered to hear the man many
referred to as an "agitator."
Smith began pondering her

memories of hearing King speak in
person that June night, after attend-
ing this year's Emancipation
Proclamation celebration on New
Year's Day. The event, sponsored
by the Nassau County Branch of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP), took her back in time.
The civil rights movement was
a continuation of President
Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation
Proclamation, she said. It was "late
in coming, but had to happen."
"One of the things that carried
me back was (singing) 'We Shall
Overcome,'" Smith said. The song,
an anthem for the civil rights move-
ment, transported her back inside
the Lincolnville church where the
congregation had raised the song's

Two Fernandina Beach paper
mills emitted nearly 2,000 tons of
toxic pollution into the air during,
2002, the federal Enviroonmiental_
Protection Agency reported.
The Smurfit-Stone Container
Corp. mill on North Eighth Street
ranked 51st out of 100 nationwide
companies listed with 94 tons of
known- carcinogenic pollutants,
according to EPA data. The non-
profit group Environmental
Defense published the EPA find-
ings on its scorecard.org website.
Smurfit-Stone's emissions
included 80 tons of acetaldehyde
and 14 tons of formaldehyde, the
EPA noted. Smurfit-Stone Environ-
mental Manager Bill Crews said
those were byproducts of wood
Statewide, the Smurfit-Stone
plant ranked as the third highest
producer of carcinogens, or can-
cer-causing, air pollutants.
Rayonier's Fernandina mill on Gum
Street ranked eighth in the state,
with 43 tons released in 2002.
"We have been continuously try-
ing to get better, but most of the
data in those reports are estimates,"
Crews said. "As we refine it from
year to year, we get new and better
information. If it increased, it could
be because we're trying to be more
accurate in our reporting."
Crews said the company has a
research team dedicated to better
understanding what its plants emit
Smurfit mill manager Warren
Flanniken said that although data
for 2003 and 2004 has not yet been
released, it may show a decrease in
emissions due to money spent to
control air pollution.

Public beach access, under pres-
sure from Florida's growing popu-
lation, will be preserved if a -bill
sponsored by
state Rep. Aaron
Bean passes leg-
islative muster.
Bean is the
sponsor of the
Open Beaches
Act, which
declares that
public access to Bean
Florida's beach-
es has been
"ancient, reasonable, without inter-
ruption and free from dispute."
Despite its abundance of coast-
line, Florida has no comprehensive
law that protects public beach
access. If passed, the new law could
take effect July 1.
"Beach access is like money. It's
only a big deal if you don't have it,"
Bean said. 'This addresses public
access to the beach. We're going to
keep them open because we deem
the public's access as so important
that we do not want it given away or
Bean said the law would prevent
property owners from blocking
beach access from their property
line to the ocean's edge as well.
Members of the Florida Open
Beaches Foundation have
expressed concern that population
growth along the state's coasts
threatens to further erode public
beach access.
According to foundation figures,
the state averages one beach access
for every five miles of coast, or one
per 10,000 Floridians. That doesn't
include the approximately 50 mil-
lion tourists who visit Florida each

Monday they should account for tax dollars

"We should determine what happened to

April 28 when the board discussed shifting
money from the transportation fund to the
general fund.
"There is confusion, Bob is right, if you

equipment is due to be installed by
2006 to keep pace with EPA regu-
lations, he added.
"We have capital money allocat-
ed several million dollars for
the next year for additional con-
itrols," Crews said.
Mike Bell, Rayonier manager of
corporate relations in the Southeast,
said overall toxic air emissions
dropped by half between 2001 and
2002 due to environmental controls.
"We're certainly trying to mini-
mize the impact on the environ-
ment, and there has been some cap-
ital investment in environmental
controls," Bell said. In 2002,
Rayonier spent about $1.9 million on
condensers to address EPA regu-

ber of Rayonier's local environ-
mental committee, said pollution
reduction has continued since 2002.
Based on data he's reviewed,
"2003 and 2004 are better than 2002
at Rayonier," Scanlan said. "I'm
happy about the improvements
they've made. They've done that
and they continue to do that.

Bean for adopting its cause.

Shine said public accesses lead-
ing to and alongside Florida's beach-
es have been systematically closed
over the last 50 years.
Public access to Amelia Island
beaches has also become an issue.
Residents who now live near public
beach access points might see them
as a threat to their privacy. Late last
year, Fernandina Beach lost a pub-
lic beach access after it was closed
with a fence constructed by a South
Fletcher Avenue condominium
The city has settled a dispute
with Ketch Courtyard Homeowners
Association to reopen public beach

,In a separate case, a south
Amelia Island resident tried to block
motorists from driving along the
beach behind his home by plant-
ing sea oats there. Dave Bowman
was originally thwarted in his effort
to stop beach driving on his own
but the beach was ultimately dosed
to motorists.
The state established a new
route from ALA and the Nassau
River to a fishing spot at the south
end of the Amelia Island State
Recreation Area. Beach driving is

Methanol, or "wood alcohol,"
accounted for over half of Smurfit's
total toxic releases, at 965 tons. It
accounted for 226 tons, or nearly
half, of Rayonier's.
Crews said some methanol and
associated pollutants known to have
offensive odors are burned at the
Smurfit mill, rendering them harm-
"For mills like us, the reason the
odors have gone down over the
years is because we have been col-
lecting these gases and combust-
ing them," Crews said. "There are
still processes you can't collect them
from. We have reduced it and have
gotten the worst areas of it"

The proposed Open Beaches
Act states that "it shall be prohibit-
ed for any person to create, erect, or
construct any structure, barrier, or
restraint, either vegetative or man-
made, that will interfere with or
obstruct the right of the public to
enter or leave the beach by way of
any approach or to lawfully use any
part of the beach for recreation or
other customary purposes." .
There is no specific wording in
the legislation allowing or prohibit-
ing beach access by motor vehicle,
but it limits private parties imposing
restrictions on the beach, stating,
"neither the state nor any munici-'
pality shall revoke any public
approach to the beach, or allow for
such revocation for private purpos-
es not otherwise entitled to a prop-
erty owner as a matter of law."
"No private landowner can block
access to or on the beach," Bean
explained. "Let's say there's a per-
son on the beach who builds a bar-

Bell said.
"As long as we're in the busi-
ness of making what we're making,
this is going to be part of it," Bell
said; adding that Rayonier will
always pursue the "best available
technologies" to control its pollu-
Crews said the Smurfit mill is a
"plain vanilla pulp and paper mill"
that produces brown kraft paper in
rolls and does not use bleach.
He said the mill is doing all it
can to control its pollution with
today's technology.
"We're doing what the EPA has
defined as the best a paper mill can
do to control these things," Crews
said. '"The maximum achievable
control technology is what we're
using. You could control most of it
very effectively, but the last few per-
centage points of it get very expen-
sive. This is as good as we can get"
Scanlan, co-chair of the Amelia
Island Association, which repre-
sents homeowners, said Rayonier's
community environmental com-
mittee could serve as a model.
"Smurfit does not have a citizens'
environmental committee," he said.
"I don't know what they're doing. I'd
like for them to have the same open-
ness with the community that

Bean noted that the law will
ensure that the public doesn't lose
what access to the beach it already
has and takes for granted.
"I've heard horror stories of
municipalities closing access to the
beach for interests that will bring
tax money," Bean said. "All across
the state, the public has the right to
the beach."
Bean said the bill, which has
been a work in progress for about a
year, may have additions to it, such
asaccess to public waterways.
"We've got to go through public
input, then file it," Bean added. "It's
still subject to tweaking or amend-
ments. We still have to go through
committees and defend it."

FRIDAY, JANUARY 14.2005 NASSAU News-Leader

kING Continued from 1A
melody throughout the evening.
Outside the church that night, "You
could see angry people walking by," she
recalled. A parked car riddled with bullets
reminded everyone of the danger of
speaking in favor of racial equality. And
television cameramen "were documenting
every face in that church, for whatever
The next morning following his
speech, Smith attended a small press con-
ference and sat next to King. She told
him about her teaching career. "He lis-
tened carefully" to her as she talked about
the school and her students.
"When he opened up his briefcase I
saw the photographs of him and asked
him if I could have one," she said. "He
smiled and said he would be happy to
give me one."
In observance of the national King
holiday on Monday, "I think people
should go to a church and remember
him pra.yvrffll\" and pray "to complete
the ihiinis lie would like to see complet-
ed," Smith said,
Smith, to h lI lli\td in Fernandina for
about seven years, came to Florida many
years ago from the low hills near
CleveLuid. Tenn., where she describes
her life on a .how farm as "sheltered."
"I think my father raised me to respect
and love all people," she said. "All people
were welcome at our home."
But not everyone in Smith's small
hometown of Mt Harmony extended that
same feeling of welcome to its black cit-
izens. Smith witnessed that one day when
she was about 11 years old. She and her
father had gone into town one morning
when they saw the body of a black man
hanging from a tree on the courthouse
square. "I think it (the memory) just came
back to me as a statement of the whole sit-
uation of how needless and unChristian
that people would go down those paths."
After she and her parents moved to
Florida, Smith graduated from New
Smyrna Beach High School and decided
to take the path of an activist
"I just always tried to look for the right
thing in life," she said. "In my heart I had
already seen the things that were wrong
in the area of the South that I grew up in."
Black people "weren't able to be treated
with any kind of decency and respect"
And Smith observed that some people
displayed contempt for her participation
in marches for peace and racial equality.
"People would be extremely hostile,"
Smith said. "I think because I was a
southern girl, they resented that
In the 40 years since she crossed paths
with King, Smith has traversed many
oceans around the world. And she
believes the nation has obstacles that
remain to be overcome.
"I think there's still a long way to go,"
Smith said. "I think there's still a lot of
people out there that are racially preju-
diced and that concerns me. I think if
somebody is carrying around pfreon-
ceqed opinions about their fellqW an,
they are not going to work toward the
well-being of all people."

What would King say about today's issues?

He could have spoken about lunch
counter sit-ins, church bombings, the
Montgomery bus boycott or marches.
But instead Bev Asbury took the civil
rights movement and the man who pro-
pelled it to national prominence out of the
past and into the present.
Tired of the "nostalgic rehashing" of
events that often accompanies the annual
observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. national holiday, Asbury opted to invite
military officers and civilians gathered
inside the chapel at the Naval Submarine
Base in Kings Bay, Ga. to simply "imag-
"Now, I'm very much aware of where I
am, where we are. And still I must ask,
'Can you imagine Dr. King having nothing
to say about the war in Iraq?'" Asbury
said. "At least imagine what he would have
to say about the diversion of human and
material resources away from child care,
health care, care of the aging, education.
Imagine his remarks about the tsunami
commitments of this nation, while we're
spending one billion dollars a day on war
in the Middle East."
During a Birthday Celebration
Ceremony honoring King at the naval
base on Wednesday, Asbury offered his
perspectives on what King's human rights
work would encompass had he lived.
King, who championed peace, justice,
civil liberties and civil rights, would have
to confront and respond to many con-
tentious social, political arid religious
questions, from weapons of mass destruc-
tion and "the detention of people without
charges under the Patriot Act" to evolu-
tion and the death penalty, he said.
"Can you imagine King other than
being contrary?" Asbury said. "Can you
imagine him not upsetting this audience?
Can you imagine him sidestepping contro-
versy? Can you imagine him not upsetting
the daylights out of us this morning?"
Drawing from current eventsAsbury
asked the audience to consider how King
would address today's domestic and inter-
national crises in poverty, healthcare and
human rights, "based on the known facts
of his life and ministry."
Asbury, a retired Vanderbilt University
professor of theology, was born in
Elberton, Ga., one month after King, in .
1929. Asbury met the civil rights leader in
Atlanta, "at a conference on the racial inte-
gration of the student Christian movement
in the South," when they were both 17
years old. King was already the pastor for
a South Carolina congregation.
A Yale divinity school graduate, Asbury
also became a minister. With the same
personal commitment he made to organ-
ize and participate in programs and
protests to obtain civil rights for black
Americans, Asbury challenged 1i likten-
6et in touch with your own furor at
the nature of these remarks," he said
Although King founded the Southern

Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC),
most black Baptist churches in the South
did not support King's ministry, Asbury
said, calling into question how King would
have fared in today's religious climate.
"Can you imagine Dr. King as a televi-
sion evangelist preaching from a crystal
cathedral? I can't Can you imagine him

Gibson's movie 'The Passion?' Would that
be his interpretation of the role of Jesus in
modern life?" Asbury said.
While many churches continue to
emphasize individual salvation and evan-
gelical outreach, King, who embraced
Jews and black Muslims, "had already .
moved away from such parochial con-
cerns to a more universal concern," he
"I know Dr. King would be deeply con-
cerned about the disproportionate num-
ber of African Americans who have been
sentenced to death in the states of this
union," he.said, adding that he visited
death row with The Rev. Dr. James
Lawson, King's mentor in nonviolence.
The two went to see James Earl Ray,,who
had beti'ioorivicted .ofiurdering King..
Asbury said that he believes King
would be advocating for social issues such
as women's rights and equal pay and

speaking openly about homosexuality.
Bayard Rustin, one of King's advisors had
to remove himself from the SCLC because
he was openly homosexual, Asbury said.
"I can imagine that King would have
said the day has come to overcome our
prejudice about people who are homosex-
ual so that they may live freely and in the
open," he said.
"We can imagine that he would have
never abandoned the poor," Asbury said.
Just before his death, King had begun a
poor people's campaign. Today, King
would also be focusing on health issues
such as infant mortality and "how we, one
of the greatest nations and wealthiest
nations on earth, have a higher rate of
infant mortality than China," he said.
"I can imagine Dr. King having
embraced Nelson Mandela a few days
ago," when Mandela called a press confer-
ence "to acknowledge that his son had

County won't sell landfill land

Nassau County Commissioners
voted unanimously Jan. 5 to not
sell 50 acres of land next to the
county's landfill.
Companies responding to a
request for proposal to buy or oper-
ate the West Nassau Landfill had
expressed interest in the parcel of
land to its south, and County
Administrator Mike Mahaney had
asked the commission if it wanted
to make the land available to a suc-
cessful bidder.
The open-ended request for
proposal, prepared by Tampa-
based Kessler Consulting and
released Nov. 1, asks for proposals
to buy, lease or manage by com-
panies qualified to handle such
duties. Financially, the landfill is
painted into a corner, with waste
from two counties pouring in as its
time is running out.
"They're looking at all the
options," Robin Mitchell, senior
consultant with Kessler Consulting,
said of the county's intent for the
landfill's future. "Even if (prospec-
tive bidders) were just managing
the landfill, they would want to see
if there was the ability to expand it
But with their unanimous vote,

the county commissioners
answered that question with an
emphatic "no," against the recom-
mendation of County Attorney
Michael Mullin.
"You originally acquired that
property for the purpose of expand-
ing and relocation of your
Hilliard Road Department," Mullin
said. "From a legal standpoint, you
ought to make it available."
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham said the county
should keep the land as a buffer
against the landfill.
"I'm not in favor of it either,"
said Commissioner Floyd
Vanzant. "I'm in favor of holding
onto it."

The landfill itself is on a 140-
acre site, 41 acres of which is active
landfill and 11 acres which is a
closed operation. The other 90
acres is taken up by buffer areas
and infrastructure needed by the
As of Dec. 31, the West Nassau
Landfill was wracked with debt, its
enterprise fund responsible for
making payments on $17.9 million
in debt service dating back to when
the landfill was opened. At that
time, Nassau County also bor-
rowed money to cap and close two
other county landfills.
The debt service has forced

Nassau County to accept outside
waste, most notably from Clay
County, to make the landfill a prof-
it-maker, but that has shortened
its lifespan considerably.
"The county is willing to enter-
tain a variety of options," the
request for proposal said. Some
suggestions were to sell the land-
fill outright to be operated as a pri-
vate operation that contracts with
the county; leasing the landfill and
operating it as a private landfill
under contract; managing the land-
fill on-site as the county maintains
ownership and contracts with the
company; or maintaining county
ownership outright.
"Nassau County is seeking pro-
posals to provide environmentally
sound, affordable and efficient
long-term solid waste disposal serv-
ices for solid waste generated in
Nassau County," Kessler wrote.
"The county is especially interest-
ed in obtaining proposals that will
help facilitate repayment of the
county's Solid Waste Revenue
Mitchell noted that although no
bids have yet been received, the
deadline has been extended to
Jan. 26.
She predicted a last minute
surge in bid submittals.

Ordinance limits commissioners

Nassau County Commissioners
must notify the county administra-
tor or his assistant when they
request information from staff after
an ordinance governing their work-
ing relationship with employees was
amended Monday.
Commissioner Marianne
Marshall objected to the amend-
ment, which passed on a 3-1 vote.
The amendment followed com-
plaints by commissioners in
December that Marshall's frequent
requests for detailed information
from county staff violated the law.
"I am going to do my homework
as I have done for the last eight
years. I don't need to go through an
assistant," said Marshall.
She complained that under the

new rule, ordinary citizens have
more rights than county commis-
'"The administrator needs to
know what's going on," said
Commissioner Floyd Vanzant "He's
supposed to be directing staff, so I
disagree." He added that unlike
commissioners, citizens have to pay
a copying fee for public records
they request.
"I think it is extremely impor-
tant the manager knows what is
going on in the departments," said
commission Chair Ansley Acree.
She said in confidential matters,
Marshall could consult County
Attorney Michael Mullin.
While he sympathized with the
need sometimes for more informa-
tion on matters coming before the
board, Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham said, "I followed this

kind of rule for 25 years and it
worked very well for me."
They rejected a motion by
Marshall to amend some of the
wording of the ordinance.
The ordinance states, "A county
commissioner shall not give orders
or directives, publicly or privately, to
any county official or employee who
is subject to the direction and super-
vision of the County Administrator.
If a majority of the Board of County
Commissioners finds that a county
commissioner has violated this sec-
tion, the board may notify the gov-
Commissioners must notify the
administrator's assistant when they
make requests for documents or
information from a department, and
also take into consideration the
workload it creates.

Befair for hearts
SOn Jan. 4, city commissioners
discussed making a resolution that
the $58,000 paid to the city by the
Port of Fernandina each year be
designated for the Amelia Arts
Centre. Further discussion will
take place at the Tuesday com-
mission meeting. I applaud the city
officials for wanting to support the
arts on Amelia Island. However, I
believe that other established non-
profit arts organizations in our
community should have an oppor-
tunity to benefit from these funds.
There are other arts groups
that deserve the chance to apply
for city support, perhaps through
a grant process. We are fortunate
in our community to be well rep-
resented by organizations that
offer varied opportunities to attend
events or to be active participants
in theater, music, dance and visu-
al arts. For most of us, this grass-
roots participation in the arts at
the community level is the means
by which we are able to explore
our artistic natures. I encourage
city officials to consider what is
fair and beneficial to all our arts

have information the letter writers

can take to the county commis-
sioners' meeting. Combined they'll
get six minutes. I remember riding
with my brother one afternoon in
his wood truck. As we approached
CR 107 going east, the light went to
caution, then to red. At 50 mph,
the loaded truck pulling a chipper
was now skidding through the dry
intersection, horn blowing and
blue-gray smoke rolling from the
tires. I was concerned!
After reading "Careless truck
drivers," I went onto the Internet
two locations, "NHTSA VRTC

"Large Truck Accidents." The first
is a crash avoidance research cen-
ter, the second is the law office of
Morgan & Padgett of Tampa. The
engineering firm suggests a
required stopping distance of
between 335-355 feet for a loaded
semi-tractor trailer at 60 mph
(unloaded trucks have a longer
stopping distance). The law firm,
specializing in truck accidents, sug-
gests a very minimum of seven
seconds (or nine semi-tractor trail-
er following lengths) to stop at 60
mph. Both reports suggest ideal
conditions, with brakes.in top

I have advice for the Nassau County
Commission as it prepares an ordinance restrict-
ing adult stores: Don't make it retroactive.
If the county tries to stop Adam & Eve from
opening on A1A, it will be sued and most likely
will lose. We cannot afford the waste of taxpayer
The warnings from Adam & Eve's attorneys
should be taken seriously. The North Carolina
company is serious about
its rights. So much so, its
founder wrote a book about
Philip D. Harvey who
started Adam & Eve 30
years ago and has been
quoted as saying he wants
his shops to become "the

; company's successful
defenses against federal, state and local govern-
ments. From 1986, when 37 armed law enforce-
ment agents entered the mail-order company in
Carrboro, N.C., through prosecutions in Utah,
Kentucky and Alabama, Adam & Eve has success-
fully deterred its opponents.
Harvey's book is a thoughtful look at pornogra-
phy, sexuality and censorship. He is a forceful
advocate for sexual pleasure and the freedom to
enjoy it.
He is not afraid to fight for what he believes is
right He notes his company was even more prof-
itable while fighting its legal battles than after
they were won, and closes his book with this
statement, "I confess, I miss the sounds and
smells of battle. We had been shot at, as Winston
Churchill put it, without result, and indeed there
is nothing quite so exhilarating. The moat around
our castle is deep. The drawbridge is up and our

and roadblocks in rural counties are hurdles to be
I don't think Nassau.County, no matter how
many good'Christian lawyers donate their time,
can beat Harvey in court. He has the resources
and the legal precedents to prevail.
Rather, I believe our local governments should
focus on laws to restrict future businesses that
violate community standards.
I also believe opponents have other avenues to
vent their concern. For one, if the store is not
patronized by consumers, it will fail. For another,
the right of free expression extends to those who
would.protest outside a business they find of ill
repute .
Finally, I believe we should recognize Adam &
Eve asa symbolic reflection of what is happening
in our community.
We sold pur soul to the devil of commerce a
long time ago. As Nassau County grows, our com-
niunity standards inevitably will change.
The best evidence of that is O'Neal Memorial
Baptist Church, across the street from the strip
mall where Adam & Eve will locate. The pretty lit-
tle church unfortunately has become a relic of a
community virtually destroyed by growth and
development along A1A.
We widened the road, encouraged super
stores, shopping centers and other commercial
activity and now we don't like what "progress"

The New Year has brought some promising
signs from our elected officials at both the
county and city levels.
In an apparent change of heart, the
county administration, led by County Attorney Mike
Mullin, has vowed to fight the opening of an adult
oriented "sex shop" in Yulee. I say change of heart
not because the county leaders had ever supported
such a store, but because they have a history of get-
ting weak-kneed whenever someone threatens to
sue them if they don't get their way (a la Crane
But when the lawyers for the proposed store
owners recently announced that Nassau County
would lose in court if they tried to prevent the -
store's opening, Mullin responded, "Like any ordi-
nances (the county commission) considers, threats
fall on deaf ears and should fall on deaf ears." Now
let's try adopting that same attitude the next time a
developer starts threatening.
Which brings us to the city: Now that we've seen
what has happened in the county where elected offi-
cials were not farsighted enough to anticipate prob-
lems like the pending adult sex shop, we'd like to
believe the city administration is now feverishly
working on their own set of ordinances that would
prevent similar problems within the city limits. But
are they? As the old saying goes, "An ounce of pre-
vention is worth a pound of cure" (which the county
will unfortunately now discover).
And speaking of our city leaders, since the city
fathers are now considering changing the way the
city commission is elected, as well as the timing for
the elections, let me offer a suggestion that has
been used successfully in like-sized communities
across the country.
Under this system city elections would be held
every two years (like the proposed change), and it
would make no difference when it took place

(spring or fall). However, at
each election, three of the five
commission seats would be up
for election, and all candidates
would run "at-large" for the
three vacancies.
The top three votegetters
would be the winners, with the
top two candidates receiving
four-year terms, and the third
place finisher receiving a two-
Mike Boyle year term. While no one would
be running specifically for the
*" mayor's position, and the new
WAIT A commission members would
MIM E still elect the mayor and vice
mayor at their first public meet-
ing, tradition would suggest the
top votegetter in the election would be the mayor
and the next top candidate would become the vice
mayor. Both of these individuals would hold these
titles for the first two years of their new terms, and
would then become council members.for the
remaining two years of their terms.
At the next election two years later, the other
three council members would have to seek re-elec-
tion, or voluntarily leave public service. Such a sys-
tem ensures a level of continuity since there will
always be two holdovers from the last commission
who will possess institutional knowledge of the
issues facing the city. An additional benefit appears
to be the. candidates' strategy of running on perti-
nent issues, rather than against a particular individ-
ual since all are competing against each other.
The one aspect of this system that occasionally
becomes controversial rests with the actual number
of votes each resident is allowed to cast on Election
Day. (Now don't get excited here. We're not talking
about adopting the Chicago system of "vote early.

Spencer Smith, a young lawyer in
Washington, D.C. Besides his regular,
job at Arnold, Fortas and Porter, he
worked with the American Civil
Liberties Union. Spencer was on his
way to St Augustine to help out with
the civil rights movement We left our
daughter with a grandmother, jumped
into our old car and drove up from
Merritt Island to St Augustine. We
were excited, and looking forward to
visiting with a beloved family member.
I was so young I did not understand
the deep impact of what was going on.
I had already marched in the great
March on Washington, Aug. 28, 1963,
and heard Dr. Martin Luther King give
, his'flatous ";'Have aDream"'speech. 'I
walked in the "Quebec, Washington,
Guantanamo Peach Walk" protesting
social injustices and racial inequality.
About 20 of us, both black and white,
walked 15 miles a day alongside the
highway down A1A with our signs and
placards. I do remember lots of cars
swerving off the highway in a mock
attempt to run over us lots of dust
Despite all this "experience" in protest-
ing I was not prepared for what I expe-
rienced in St Augustine that June
summer evening, 1964.
When we arrived, about noon, the
town was electric. Tension was in the
air. We met Spencer and his other
legal friends at the Woolworth's dime
store downtown across from the park.
Woolworth's had made a name for
itself for not serving or waiting on
African-Americans. There had already
been rioting, destruction of property
and street shooting. Crowds were

gathering on the streets. African-
Americns were refused service in the
downtown restaurants and there were
many other social injustices.
That evening, at St. Mary's
Missionary Baptist Church in
lincolnville (the historic black neigh-
borhood, settled in 1866 by former
slaves) was an evening I will treasure
my entire life. There were very few
white people in the church other than
the NBC, CBS, and ABC cameramen,
with their huge roll-around cameras
on large tripods documenting every-

thing. We were waiting for Dr. Martin
Luther King to arrive. The plain wood
fans, with dull funeral home advertise-
ments printed on them, were flapping.
The summer night was intensely hot,
like the town itself.
The Rev. Ralph Abernathy was at
the podium. Police cars and policemen
patrolled outside the church doors.
Inside, people stood up to speak of
injustices they had suffered that day,
each in their turn. Those present in
the church swayed back and forth to
the beautiful hymn, "We Shall

vote often.") Since there will be three vacancies to
fill, most communities with this system allow voters
to cast up to three votes for the three candidates of
their choice. They do not allow cumulative voting
(casting two or three of their votes for a single can-
didate), an act which would obviously skew the
There is another school of thought that believes
the backers of a single candidate could urge their
followers to cast just one of their three votes for just
their candidate, and leave their remaining two votes
un-cast Why would anyone encourage voters to
basically waste two-thirds of their voting power? It's
usually done to increase the chances that their can-
didate will receive the most votes, and therefore
become the mayor.
However, such a strategy is extremely short-
sighted since there will be three winners in the elec-
tion regardless of how many votes are withheld. We
need to remember that in the commission/city man-
ager form of government which the city of
Fernandina Beach follows, the mayor has very little
power over his/her colleagues, and the official
duties of that position are basically ceremonial.
Consequently citizens are much better served by
casting all three of their votes for the three most
qualified candidates running. Since it always takes
a minimum of three votes to get anything passed, it
would be foolish to vote for only one candidate
believing that a single individual can effectively
serve you and your family.
Whatever system is finally adopted, it will always
be up to each and every one of us to play an active
role in the total electoral process. There are some
daunting problems facing our community, but none
of them are insurmountable if we all pull together.

hours late. It was approaching 10,30.
Just as Rev. Abernathy was saying,
"We are going to pour cold water on
Goldwater," Dr. King arrived. The Rev.
Abernathy shouted in a loud voice
"Who's our leader?" The congregation
intoned, "Dr. Martin Luther King." Dr.

$2.4 million looted from county road fund

N assau County has taken $2.4 million in tax
proceeds designated for road paving and
maintenance and, in violation of county
law, appropriated it for other costs. While
the county brags about its Taj Mahal-esque court-
house and boondoggle boat ramp, taxpayers -
throughout the county in Amelia City, Marsh
Lakes, Piney Island, Nassauville, off Blackrock
Road, in Yulee, Callahan, Hilliard and Bryceville -
put up with poor and deteriorating roads.
In a brazen act of legerdermain, the commission-
ers on Monday night endorsed this looting of the
road paving money by revising the approved and
published minutes of a previous meeting to show
that the opposite happened to what was originally
This story begins on Sept 7, 2001, when the
commissioners voted 3-1 to allocate 0.25 mill of the
property tax rate "as a recurring revenue source to
fund county road and bridge projects that would
include resurfacing." As a result, the county collect-
ed in taxes $883,139 in fiscal 2001-2, $1,014,228 in
2002-3 and $1,114,957 in 2003-4 for the road paving
fund. That's a total of $3,012,324 raised in the three-
year period.
To put that in perspective, a 2002 report from the
county Road and Bridge Department identified 102
roads throughout the county that needed paving,
maintenance or upgrading. The estimated cost of
these projects was put at approximately $4.7 million.
Therefore, enough money was collected in taxes to
pay for two-thirds of the roadwork by now, with
another million-plus to come in the current fiscal
Many of these roads are considered in "desper-
ate shape," according to one Road and Bridge engi-
neer. He said that if some roads were not resurfaced
quickly they would deteriorate so much that they
would have to be rebuilt. One community is so con-
cerned over its crumbling roads that later this
month it will consider paying for the repaving itself
to maintain property values.
The county spent $1,149,262 of the road fund in
2002-04, according to county records. Subtract this

and loose with our tax dollars.

from the $3,012,234 collected in the last three years
and there should be $1,863,062 in the road surfac-
ing/maintenance fund. Yet the county administra-
tor's office says that fund had only $748,105 going
into fiscal 2005. What happened to the rest:
In the 2004 budget, the 2001 county law designat-
ing 0.25 mill in taxes for roadwork was simply
ignored. That law was not rescinded. It was just
, It gets worse: Former county Clerk of Courts.
Chip Oxley told commissioners on April 28 of last
year that $1.3 million of the road fund had been,
misallocatedd" in 2003 from the road fund into the
general fund to "cover operating costs a result of
pressure on the former director of administrative
services to balance the budget...," according to
published minutes of the meeting. At that meeting,
the commissioners presumably voted to reallocate
the $1.3 million back to the road fund where it
belonged. Or so it seemed.
When confronted with this last week, the county
blithely responded "it was a mistake; the published
summary ofthe minutes was wrong; the commis-
sioners actually voted to approve the illegal budget
transfer." And at Monday night's commission meet-
ing, County Attorney Mike Mullin pulled out of his
hat presto! new minutes of that April 28 meet-
ing. (We have asked for copies of the video and
audio tapes of that meeting.),
When the misallocation of road paving funds was
brought to the commissioners' attention by Oxley
back in April, then Commissioner Vickie Samus
expressed her anger and lamented over the "misap-

propriation" after "we sold this to the citizens of
Nassau County as .25 being allocated for road resur-
facing and stabilization." (Even according to the
revised minutes, the belated approval of the illegal
budget transfer was to have been "for one time
only," yet the raid on the road fund took place in
2004 as well with the reallocation of the $1.1 million.
The county administrator's office has not found any
authorization for that act.)
The revision of the April 28 minutes creates an
interesting conundrum for Mike Mahaney.
Thinking they had $1.3 million to work with in the
road fund (using the original minutes as a guide),
the county has spent or committed roughly half of
that amount for road work and Mahaney thinks he
has $647,000 left in the road fund. He told me last
week that he has to determine how the commission-
ers want to spend that money. But the commission-
ers have now pulled that rug out from under him
with the revision to the minutes.
The county is obviously playing fast and loose
with our tax dollars. They are "robbing Peter to pay
Paul," and Peter is objecting. There are rumblings
about poor and deteriorating roads all over the
county. Mahaney warned the commissioners in
December to expect taxpayer unease over the situa-
The bottom line is: The county is legally
required to allocate roughly a million dollars a year
to road paving and maintenance (the Sept 7, 2001
motion that has the force of law); some $3 million
has been collected in taxes under this law; $2.4 mil-
lion of that has been looted for other purposes. And
unless the commissioners reverse themselves yet
again, another million-plus should be added for
To add insult to injury, new Commissioner Tom
Branan has suggested a gasoline tax to raise the
money for road paving and maintenance. To

of History, the historic court-

I like to ask people how they
first found the island. Thamm
smiles as she recalls her first
visit to Amelia Island. She and
her husband, Gerhardt, were liv-
ing in the Washington D.C., area
where they had both enjoyed
successful public service
careers. They were in their car
heading south down 1-95.

"We both decided we had to
get off the busy interstate. We
took the first exit in Florida that
looked tempting and had 'beach'
in its name."
Not only did they escape 1-95,
they found a community that
they knew they could love. On
one of their return visits, they
found a home in the historic dis-
trict where they now live.
The house is hardly the
house they first bought. The
Thamms have done extensive
renovation to the house, which
dates back to 1884. The most
recent addition is a large, sunny
family room. As they made their
renovations, they were careful to
protect the historic integrity of
the house and neighborhood.
They used contractors who spe-

cialized in historic preservation.
The home is now a show place
with the collected treasures of its
owners and the rambling garden
surrounding it.
Originally from the North-
east, Thamm received a scholar-
ship to Syracuse University and
earned an A.B. degree in
Soviet/East European Area
Studies with a minor in the
Russian language. She continued
her studies at Georgetown
University in Washington, D.C.
Before retiring, Thamm worked
for the Library of Congress for
25 years, serving in many differ-
ent capacities.
Listening to Thamm, two
words come to mind capable
and enthusiastic. Her energy and
passion are clear as she talks

Community revival a success

What a great way to begin the new year, in the
house of God. Most churches had individual serv-
ices or joined together with other churches for
combined services.
One thing for sure, God is speaking to his peo-
ple to put their differences aside and come togeth-
er as one body in Christ. Just as he spoke to one,
he also speaks to another, so what makes one dif-
ferent from another when God speaks to all.
The songster says when all of God's children
get together, what a time, what a time, what a
time. Could there be two heavens? Can we live
together in heaven and separate on earth?
The second annual Community Revival was
held recently at New Zion Missionary Baptist
Church. The Rev. Jeremiah Robinson was host
pastor. Five churches participated in weapons of
mass deliverance. What a deliverance it can be if
the barriers are taken down and all of God's chil-
dren come together for a mass community revival.
God does deliver through these five houses,
but when he reaches all of the houses in the com-
munity, the houses being God's house, and when
'he reaches your house, mybjpube aobtlisiEllinuse,
we ill-ha'.e a better community until each house
has been reached. That's when a mass deliverance
has taken place. What a time that will be; 50 com-
munity churches, all on one accord. -
A few years ago we were worried about 2000,
and now five years later, we're still worried. The

earth is the Lord's and the
fullness thereof. The world,
and they that dwell therein.
So let's get together as one
body in Christ, break down
the walls of denomination. It's
not about us. It's about God
Sand we are all his people, and

AND THEN and make a difference in the

Amid disaster, God depends upon his flock to help

A mid the tragedy and heartache of the
tsunami that devastated Southeast
Asia there was a miracle that speaks
B to me of the mercy of God.
At the Khao Lak Resort in Thailand, ele-
phants trained to provide rides for visiting
tourists became uneasy after the earthquake
that caused the giant wave. In the hour prior to
the deadly tsunami the eight elephants broke
free of their chains and made their way to a
Conrad nearby hill. Their trainers, uncertain of the
Sharps cause of their agitation followed. As the ele-
phants fled, they stopped to lift tourists with
their trunks, placing several children on their
PUL T backs in order to carry them to safety. No one
NOTES knew the full extent of their instinctual actions

until the tsunami landed, but for at least a
small number of tourists (mostly children, fol-
lowed by petrified parents and trainers) their
actions were life saving.
How easy it is in life to lose sight of God's
mercy, especially in the face of such tragic
human losses. I cannot begin to understand
the "why" of such calamity but I pray for those
whose faith is shaken because of this tragedy. I
pray for those who have lost loved ones: chil-
dren, grandchildren, parents, brothers and sis-
I pray for those who have lost everything:
livelihoods, homes, community infrastructure
like roads, electricity, fresh water, etc. I pray
for those whose bodies and spirits are

crushed: the injured, those who cannot sleep
at night, and those whose world has forever
changed, leaving them with no sense of hope.
I cling to the words of the prophet Isaiah: "I
will tell you of the kindness of the Lord, the deeds
for which he is to be praised, according to all the
Lord has done for us. In all their distress he too
was distressed, and the angel of his presence
saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed
them; he lifted them up and carried them all the
days of old." (Isaiah 63: 7a, 9)
If creatures like elephants can serve in the
redemptive act of carrying children to high
ground in the advance of a killer wave, just
imagine the redemptive powers of the Good
Shepherd. He stands ready to lift up those dev-

stated peoples near and far.
Yet, he needs his people. He needs you and
me to step forward and be the embodiment of
his compassion. The tsunami has receded, but
the compassion of Christ will never end. Those.
who are devastated and lost can depend on
Can Christ depend upon you and me how-
ever, to lift up his people brought low and
carry them to new heights of hope, human dig:
nity and rejoicing in the presence of God?
God can depend upon elephants to demon-
strate his mercy surely he is also depending
upon you and me.

Presbyterian Church in Fernandina Beach.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 14.2005/News-Leader

In 2004, several major storms
pounded Florida, causing hor-
rendous damage. Now that the
power has been restored, the
drinking water is safe and peo-
ple have moved back home, it's
time to tackle home repairs like
replacing broken windows,
securing exterior doors and
repairing the roof. With so much
to fix, what is the best way to get
the job done correctly?
Most contractors are rep-
utable but often in times of high
demand, such as after natural
disasters, it is common to see a
surge in unlicensed people offer-
ing services they aren't qualified
to perform. According to Phil
Akers, St. Petersburg resident
and manager of coastal certifica-
tion for JELD-WEN windows
and doors, "Whether you are
hiring a general contractor to
reconstruct your house or an
installer to replace one broken
Window, there are a few simple
idles 'e eidh6meowner should

heck references
Anyone can place an adver-
semient in the Yellow Pages but
e quality of the ad is not repre-
sentative of the quality of the
(ontractor's work. Ask you
friends, family or business asso-
ciates if they know someone
who has recently had work done
and try to collect recommenda-
If you can't find a contrac-
tor through your network of
associates, ask the contractors
you call for references from cus-
tomers who had projects similar
to yours. Talk with these refer-
ences about the quality of the
,work and their overall satisfac-
tiio, and ask if you can visit their
home to see the completed job.
This research can help you
decide if a particular contractor
is right for you and your home.
You can also check for
complaints against a contractor
by contacting the Better

Business Bureau, a network that
works with businesses and con-
sumers to resolve complaints
and keep the public informed.
Visit lookup.bbb.org to locate a
bureau in your area.
Use licensed contractors and
In Florida, contractors
must be licensed by the state.
Licensure may be verified by
calling (850) 487-1395 or by visit-
ing www.MyFloridaLicense.com.
A license is not an endorsement
of the quality of the work but it
does provide some protection.
Uninsured workers who
are injured on the job can file
damage claims against the prop-
erty owner, so before you sign a
contract, ask for a copy of the
contractor's certificate of insur-
ance for general liability.
Understand your needs
Before embarking on any
remodeling project, it's a good
idea to have an understanding of
the basic local code require-
ments. While it's not possible for
you to know everything that
needs to be done, you should
take a moment to research your
options. Contact your local build-
ing department and the Florida
State Department of Community
Affairs to find out if-
your home is in the wind-
borne debris zone, which
requires impact approved win-
dows and doors or storm shut-
the windows or doors
you've chosen meet the structur-
al load requirements or "design.
pressures" for your .t .a1ti.:u.
there are advantages to
specifying energy efficient prod-
ucts such as low emissivity
(Low-E) glass, which controls
solar heat gain, or dual-pane
units which insulate the home
from both cold and hot weather.
Get it in writing
After assessing the needs
of your project, write out a plan.
Use the same plan or set of spec-
ifications to get multiple bids for

the same project By using writ-
ten specifications, you can make
an accurate comparison of pro-
posals. If one of your contractors
wants to deviate from the specifi-
cations, ask that his ideas be
presented as options in the bid.
After you select a bid and a
contractor, set expectations up
front with a written contract that
spells out what will and will not
be performed and the materials
that will be used. Specify a start
and completion date for the job;
outline a payment plan with the
final payment due after the job is
complete. If the job is several
thousand dollars, you may want
to consider having an attorney
review the agreement for your
own protection.
The general contractor you
are working with is responsible
for providing the crew. Discuss
with your contractor the impor-
tance of using experienced win-
dqw and door installers on your
job to prevent possible repercus-
sions or warranty issues due to
poor installation. Many dealers
now offer "installed sales" which
can ease many of the concerns
regarding the performance of
your new windows and doors.
It is not uncommon that
your project may involve
changes along the way as
remodeling and renovation
inevitably have a few surprises.
Try to plan for the unexpected
in your original contract, but if a
significant change or addition is
made to the work order, require
; a written authorization.
"You home is most likely
your most valuable financial
asset, so whether you are start-
ing new construction, commis-
- sioning a major remodel or mak-
ing minor repairs, you should be
confident of your decision," said
Akers. "Ask yourself if you are
comfortable communicating
with the person you hire. If you
aren't, it's likely that problems
could arise."

sometimes he is far too mature

ily side. This is a side which I,
f course, explore at every
opportunity. After all, what's the
un of being all grown up if you
-an't behave the way you want
Along about my 30th
birthday, I decided that I am
allowed to have ice cream for
breakfast It's delicious with fresh
fruit and some nuts a perfect
start for an overheated summer
I still remember the scandal-
Lzed look on a coworker's face
when I told him I'd had a mug of
chickenn noodle soup for break-
East; I was full and warm on that
frigid February morning in
During our latest holiday trek
aorth, my mother asked me, and
aot for the first time I might add,

Everyone but Mom laughed
when I replied, "Oh, I hope not!"
After all, Happy Meals are just
the right size for my lunch and I

wait until I'm in the privacy of my
3wn car before I rip the cello-
nhane off and make its moving

Even after 30 years of mar-
iage, my dearly beloved still

Wanna see?" I offered my finger
for a closer inspection but he just
closed his eyes and shook his
head. I could tell by the way he
squeezed the bridge of his nose
with his thumb and pointy finger
that I had given him a headache.
Remember when the experts
on childhood development touted
the theory that girl kids matured
earlier than boy kids? That was
OK, they said, because the boys
would catch up.
Those experts may have been
right about the different matura-
tion rates, and they may have
even been right about the boys
catching up. But I swear to you
that these experts never once
mentioned that not only would
the boys catch up with us, they
would also pass us to grow all the
way up, more so than any
expert's expectations.
Perhaps all of that maturing

has something to do with the
serious business of business, as
well as supporting a family.
Perhaps all of those young men
realized that they were destined
to spend the next 20 to 30 years
being in charge of more lives
than just their own.
I can only imagine the sober-
ing effect it would have on some
callow youth when he realized
that he was going to get up at
some ungodly hour for the next
several decades, and then spend
most of his waking hours trying
not merely to survive, but to
excel at his chosen line of work.
His satisfaction in knowing that
employers would throw an
increasing amount of money at
him as the years went by would
be somewhat mitigated by the
realization that most of that
money would be gobbled up by
mortgages, tuition and orthodon-
No wonder our husbands are
too grown up. They were too
busy becoming well-paid experts
in their fields to recognize the
importance of learning the
names of Snow White's seven
They never slowed down
enough the catch the sociological

nuances in Finding Nemo.
And they look at us as if we
were from another planet when
we confront them with essential
tidbits of knowledge, such
as you can't wear last year's
party dress to this year's gala,
you're not supposed to wear
diamonds (other than your
engagement ring) before 6 p.m.,
and white shoes must be relegat-
ed to the back of the closet after
Labor Day.
Lest I be trounced by a depu-
tation of single mothers and
assorted Feminazis, let me
assure you that I am well aware
that there is an ever-growing
number of successful women in
business who meet the chal-'
lenges of the workplace with
grace and dignity. I have noted,
however, that, unlike their male
counterparts, they have retained
the capacity to eat ice cream for
breakfast, check the cereal aisle
to find out which brand offers the
best decoder ring and order
Happy Meals because they want
the toy.
While men may very well be
from Mars, their diligence and
hard work allow some of us the
luxury to be from Disneyland.
Fun, ain't it?

Boys & Girls Club

fund drive succeeds

Ice cream for breakfast is delicious with
fresh fruit and some nuts a perfect start
for an overheated summer morning.


The Boys & Girls Club of
Nassau County has exceeded its
$3.5 million fund-raising goal to
construct a new facility in
Nassauville, said communications
director Tuck Gordon.
"The achievement of the goal is
a major milestone in a continuing

Under the direction of Jude Swearingen, Leslie Slaughter,
Meisha Walker and Pat Pikula, Life Managerment classes at
Fernandina Beach High School have been busy with the local
community, which has helped students with the development
of essential life management skills to enhance the quality of
their personal and family life. Various community groups were
invited to the classroom to discuss different topics. Above left,
students from Project S.O.S. (Strengthening our Students) of
Jacksonville discuss the benefits of sexual abstinence and con-
sequences of teenage pregnancy. Brendi Beatman of Micah's
Place provides group activities on male-female relationships
and setting boundaries, left. Jennifer Ross of Branch Bank
and Trust speaks to students about resource management and
establishing checking and savings accounts, above.


Students in Child Development classes at FBHS enjoy a visit from Dr. William McGrath, obste-
trician and gynecologist, who discussed prenatal development, care and the birth process,
above. The course emphasizes positive development and nurturing of the family at each stage
of a child's growth. Students participate in the "baby think it over project" through the use of
infant simulators, left, purchased through a mini-grant under the direction of Pat Pikula, left.
The project is intended to help young adults understand three important facts: that infants'
demands are unpredictable but must be met promptly, that infants require a great deal of time
and attention and that parenting responsibilities change one's life profoundly.


frican visitor marvels at ease of life in the U.S.

CNI staff

When Brae Riggins, a law student at George
'a-hington University in Washington, D.C., went to
frica two years ago, she knew it would be hard work.
,he knew it would be hot. She knew she would be
going something good for someone else.
What she didn't know was that she was going to
iake a very special friend one that would pay her a
isit, beginning this month.
Andrew Gomez, who lives in a village called Penyem
n Gambia, Africa, did just that he came to visit
iggins and her family.
And he, too, got more than he bargained for.
Riggins, who is from Jacksonville, found her way to
;ambia through involvement with Operation
Crossroads Africa. She spent two months there, digging
itches to lay water lines for the village, so that villagers
couldn't have to make the long trek to the river.
Since there were only women on Riggins' team,
ithe men of Penyem village helped out. And out of that
gesture came the friendship between the two students.
The pair has kept in touch through e-mails and let-
ters, and when Gomez, who is currently in the 12th
grade, expressed an interest in furthering his educa-
tion, Riggins jumped at the chance to help him.
"I want to go to school," Gomez said in an interview.
"I want to study information technology. It is very

important in Gambia. I want to help my country."
Though he is only here for one month, Gomez
wants to look at colleges and universities, so that he can
make an informed decision about where he will further

his education.
And his good friend is helping him along, showing
him the ropes.
But it's not all business. So far, Gomez has visited
several area stores and even a mall, which he says
were "very strange to me." He added that the prices
were a lot less expensive than in his country, and the
stores were all very large.
He's also spent time meeting Riggins' family, which
includes her father's girlfriend, Debbie Wesch, who is
a Callahan resident. Gomez said that everywhere he's
gone, he has found "good people."
"And they are all feeding me," he added with a
When asked about the differences between his
country and the United States, Gomez immediately
answers that the technology is the most outstanding dif-
ference he has seen so far.
Even small things, such as automatic doors, held a
great deal of fascination for Gomez.
Another difference Gomez noticed was that it's
much safer in the United States than in Gambia, where
someone always stays home to protect home and
hearth. .
"But here, you have things at home and cars," he
said. "And you can leave things at home. It's much
safer here."
Gomez also commented on the order of things in the
U.S. "It's very organized here," he said, adding that the

freedom here is also wonderful.
But Gomez is also quick to sing the praises of his
home, calling it "very welcoming" and says that he is,
as a Christian, treated no differently than any of his
Muslim neighbors.
His village has no plumbing or electricity, and farm-
ing is the main occupation. Gomez, who speaks six lan-
guages, lives in a compound with his parents and their
extended family.
When it came time to consider higher education,
Gomez said he knew he wouldn't be able to obtain it in
his country.
'There is no money for school. We have money for
food and for clothes, but not for school," he said.
When he began to plan his trip to this country,
Gomez said it took a month to get an interview for a
visa. Out of 120 people who applied the same day he did,
only 16 received a visa. Gomez was among those for-
tunate few.
But it wasn't smooth sailing. Since his country is
predominantly Muslim, Gomez had to obtain letters
from his pastor and village elders to vouch for him, so
that he wouldn't have any difficulty while traveling.
Despite fear of the unknown, Gomez is thrilled to be
in the United States and experiencing new things. But
he is most excited about seeing his friend again.
"My family was worried about me," he said. "But my
family trusts Brae. I chose her as a friend. I was very
glad that day when we became friends."

West Side chamber getting 'bigger and bigger'

WestNassau Correspondent
The Greater Nassau County
Chamber of Commerce held its
"State of the Chamber" meeting
Jan. 6 at The Pig Restaurant in
Outgoing president Todd
Duncan said membership is still
around 200 and that monthly meet-
ings continue to get "bigger and
Special events have grown, too,
including a golf tournament, Christ-
mas Parade and Arts and Crafts
Show, and the Business Expose,
which "came on the heels of the
inclement weather that we saw at
the end of the summer," he said.
"It wasn't exactly the booming
success that we wanted, but we did
really good considering what every-
body had been through just prior to
it," said Duncan.
He reminded members to pre-
pare for the upcoming banquet on
Jan. 22 at the Clarion Hotel in
Jacksonville, the golf tournament
and blueberry festival.

Helene Guest of Wachovia
Bank Financial Center encour-
ages Greater Nassau County
Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers to fill out forms, which
the chamber will use to plan
seminars to benefit the mem-

The chamber's website is up and
running and is "so much better than
it was a year ago. It actually looks
like a professional organization and
it also gets people coming to your
businesses," Duncan said.

The chamber's newsletter also
lets members know what's going
on in the community, he said.
With the increase of member-
ship, there was also an increase in
membership dues to help cover the
expenses of starting new programs
and other benefits, said Duncan.
Outgoing GNCCC treasurer and
incoming president, Mike Tiffany,
reviewed the chamber's 2004
Income and Expense Report. It
revealed higher deficits than expect-'
ed, but Tiffany said, "It's a timing
issue, not a reality issue," due to
the start and end of the chamber's
fiscal year as opposed to the start
and end of the fiscal year of some of
the chamber's sources of revenue.
Tiffany said GNCCC Executive
Director Louise Banks and the
board of directors controlled
expenses, which came in below
Had 2004 membership dues
come in by the end of the year, the
chamber would have been in better
shape financially, Tiffany said.
"The bottom line is the cham-
ber did extremely well this year

financially. We had a timing issue on
collecting our membership dues. If
we took that on an accrual basis, or
changed our fiscal year, I think we
would have been on the positive
side of income this year," Tiffany
One of the projects the cham-
ber hopes to start in March will
include seminars, in two parts. The
first will be about "business expert-
ise" and the second, "business
needs assessment," said Helene
Guest, Wachovia Bank Financial
Center manager.
She said the chamber is seeking
donations in the form of expertise
or knowledge from business own-
ers/members for the seminars, in
the categories of office manage-
ment, computer skills, real estate
and loans.
Chamber members filled out
forms, including information on
what they can contribute to the
workshops. They also were asked
to state their interests or skills
they'd like to learn. The information
will be used to plan the seminars,
said Guest.

Athletes not

immune to


I met Chamique
Holdsclaw in 1997 when
I was on the medical
staff at the University of
Tennessee. She was a three-
time All-American and ulti-
mately led the Lady
Volunteers to the three con-
secutive NCAA National
titles. She was then drafted
by the WNBA's Washington
Mystics in 1999 as the No. 1
overall pick.
It certainly would have
appeared that her career was
going well, having been
named a five-time WNBA all-
star, leading the league in
scoring in 2002 and maintain-
ing a career 18 points per
game scoring average. Then
in the midst of it all, near the
end of last season, she quit,
citing "personal reasons."
Speculation ran rampant
as to the reason for her
departure, from fatigue to
loss of desire to drug use.
Finally, Holdsclaw issued a
press release announcing
that she was suffering with
depression and under med-
ical treatment.
One might question how
someone who plays sports
for a living and makes mil-
lions doing it could become
clinically depressed.
However, by no means are
athletes immune from
depression. NHL star Pat
LaFontaine, NBA guard
Kendall Gill and Olympic
diver Wendy Williams are
among other professional
athletes who have battled
Fortunately, depression in
athletes is now more readily
recognized and the leagues
have confidential player
assistance programs to see
that they get the proper
fieatment. Unfor tunately,
many athletes are reluctant
to seek treatment for depres-
sion because they feel that it
is a sign of weakness or
worry about the label
attached to those with men-
tal illness.
Within the general popu-
lation, it is estimated that
some 8 percent have clinical
depression with women
being more likely affected
than men. Risk factors for
depression include stressful
life events, age under 40 and
recent pregnancy.
Depression in athletes has
been shown to be associated
with vigorous overtraining.
Just two years ago,
Oakland Raider Barrett
Robins was a no-show for the
Super Bowl, having checked
himself into a local hospital
for his depression.
A study by the Canadian
Football League showed that
players who had sustained
three concussions during
their careers were twice as
likely to develop depression
in their lifetime when com-
pared to the general popula-
Treatment for depression
commonly involves the use
of medications, but should
also include activity modifica-
tions, such as significantly
scaling back on training and
exercise as well as making
sure that a proper diet and
fluid intake is maintained.
Holdsclaw is on the road
to recovery. Currently play-
ing overseas to work herself
back into the game, she
hopes to return to the
Mystics for their season
opener on May 21.
In a USA Today interview,
she reported enjoying the
overseas game a lot and that
not being part of the "rat
race" was helpful in her

Pirates top

Bucs 69-58

Hosts Stanton tonight
Tuesday's 69-58 win over the 10-2 and fifth-ranked
First Coast Buccaneers pushed the Pirates' district
record to 2-2.
"We came out and did the things we know we
have to do.against athletic teams,"
Fernandina Beach High School
boys basketball coach Matt
Schreiber said. "We did a decent
job handling their pressure and
we made a high percentage of our
shots. The biggest difference was
we rebounded well."
The Pirates outscored First
Cost "i all but one quarter (4-10,
2* ', 1214 and 21-15), shooting
53 percent from the field and 47 Albertie
percent from the perimeter.
David Swan, one of four
Pirates in double figures, led with 19 points, five
rebounds, nine assists and two steals. Jon Albertie had
16 points, 14 rebounds, a block and a steal. Casey
Lowe scored 14 points, pulled down five rebounds and
had four assists. Pat Dunlap chipped in a season-high
10 points, reeled in four rebounds and had an assist
"Jon Albertie has played well since Christmas.
His inside presence makes us a much better basket-
ball team," Schreiber said. "Casey Lowe and David
Swan handled the pressure well and made a high
percentage of their shots. Thirteen assists from your
guards is quite a few.
"Pat Dunlap came off the bench and had some big
rebounds and some big baskets for us. Carson
Rodeffer gave us his usual steady performance. He
doesn't make mistakes, gets loose balls, rebounds.
J.D. Phillips, Ja'Sean Washington and Marcus Johnson
gave us valuable minutes. This was the best we've
played so far."
The Pirates (8-6) host Stanton tonight and travel
to Forrest Saturday to take on Terry Parker in a
Martin Luther King Jr. tournament at 4:30 p.m. The
junior varsity plays at 6 p.m. tonight with the varsity

Monday night.

Flashes rebound, beat

UC Christians 98-76

For the News-Leader

Hilliard's varsity basketball
team dropped its second straight
district game 98-76 at home to
University Christian Monday, just
three days after losing a shocker at
University Christian shot an
astounding 80 percent from the
field and hit 15-of-19 3-point
attempts to cancel out a gutsy per-
formance by the Flashes (6-7 over-
all, 2-2 in district play), who until
Monday had been lacking in gusto,
according to Hilliard head coach
Randy Smith.
"Our mission as a team was to
give it everything we had from the
beginning to the end of the game,"
the coach said. "And we did that for
32 minutes. We played with heart
against U.C."
Junior Daniel "Big Boy"
Thomas led the Flashes with 32
points and five rebounds, while
senior Zack Whittenburg scored
18 and hit two 3-pointers.
Sophomore Andrae Walker
notched a double-double with 16
points and 10 boards, while junior
Dennis Alderman and senior Nick
Thrift each had four points. Junior
Mikey Young scored two points
and pulled down four rebounds.

Whittenburg scored 22 points in
the losing effort, while Thomas
had 13, Walker had 12 and Thrift
had four.
On a positive note, the Flashes
left district foe Trinity with a 51-43
win last Thursday, sparked by a
big game from Thomas, who
scored 23 points and netted seven
rebounds. Whittenburg scored 15
points and hit two 3-pointers in the
win, while Walker had eight points
and both senior David Snead and
Thrift had two points apiece. Thrift
also had six rebounds against
Smith said his team needs to
get a little more defensive to have
a shot to compete in such a tough
district. He also said he expects
that to happen with a little more
"We're averaging 55.8 points a
game, which was one of our goals,"
Smith said. "But we're giving up
68.3, which obviously wasn't one of
our goals. We've had so many
games in such a short amount of
time that we need to get back in the
gym and practice. We'll have to

Some of the best sea trout action is com-

For the News-Leader
This is a time of year where it is custom-
ary to wish one another a year filled with
"health and happiness." And those who
have faced serious illness in life take that
wish to heart. Ask Donna Hicken, known
by many in northeast Florida as an anchor
for First Coast News, who now has '"breast
cancer survivor" as an accomplishment
on her resume.
On Jan. 21 at noon, the Friends of the
Library in Fernandina Beach will spon-
sor a literary luncheon where Donna Donna
Chicken will share her story. The Good about
Fight is Hicken's book about her per- and st
sonal experience with cancer and all of local W
the people who helped her face treat-
ment, cope with a life-changing struggle
and heal.
Hicken is a Jacksonville native and is
involved in a number of community organiza-
tions, including The Donna Hicken Foundation,
which helps provide the necessary funds to
care for local women living with breast cancer.
She will be at The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia

Consider such options as driving
a narrow, winding road through vine-
yards with a charming Bavarian-style
village every three kilometers, or tra-
versing a lacy network of canals
through some of the finest wine
country in the world, or visiting hill-
top Tuscan castles to catch the sum-

or Brunello, or combining a fall
foliage tour while experiencing one
of the newest wine-making centers of
America, or participating in one of
the largest wine tasting in the world

wine cognoscenti. There are many
choices; here are my favorites:
The French C6te d'Or is home to
the famous Burgundy vineyards. Red
Burgandies are made from
pinot noir grapes; the
whites are chardonnays.
Burgundy has two primary
cities: Dijon, the capital /- C
with its relics of the 14th-
and 15th-century dukes of
Burgundy, and Beaune, a
charming medieval city. The best
times to visit Burgundy is at the
beginning of September and the
third Sunday in November.
As the summer winds down, peo-
ple from around the world converge
on Dijon in a celebration of music,
culture, dance and wine: the Trois
Glorieuses Burgundian wine festival.
There are three prime events, the
Chevaliers Du Tastevin dinner at the
famous Clos De AugeuItav.-ine auIc-
tiori and dinner in the-Hospiee De

The November event is perhaps
the most famous auction in the
world. It dates back to 1859 and is an
annual gathering of who's who in
wine. The auction takes
place on the Sunday after-
noon in the covered mar-
S ket run by the brotherhood
of the Chevaliers Du
Tastevin, the liveliest of the
world's wine organizations.
You can combine a visit
to Burgundy with a six-night cruise
on local waterways (French Country

between the Vosges Mountains and
the Rhine, is the beautiful and

OUT Continued from 1B
Colmar with its charming
medieval Old Town. In between is
the 100-mile-long Route de Vin,
perhaps the most famous wine
road in the world. Obernai (a well
preserved Renaissance town),
Ribeauville (a colony of endan-
gered storks can be seen road-
side) and Riquewihr (virtually an
outdoor museum) are the key
towns on the Route de Vin, but
there are many other quaint vil-
lages that dot the unending
rolling sea of vineyards.
There are hundreds of winer-
ies, most with tasting rooms,
along the Route de Vin, including
the great house of Trimbach
whose wines are available here in
Northeast Florida. Wines here
are powerful whites: riesling,
pinot gris, gewiirztraminer, pinot
blanc and muscat The best time
to visit Alsace is during harvest
(August and September) when
there are local festivals such as
the Colmar Wine Fair in early
August and Etape Vigneronne in
Orschwihr in early September.
My favorite Italian wine vaca-
tion destination is Tuscany with
the rolling hills of Chianti and the
Via Chiantiagiana between
Firenze and Sienna. You can get a
reasonably-priced suite in a tow-
ered Tuscan castle (we stayed in
Castello Vicchiamaggio near the
village of Greve that has an impor-
tant Chianti festival in early
September). Most Tuscan towns
are built on hilltops surrounded
by vineyards. The most spectacu-
lar of all is Montepulciano, the
highest of the Tuscan hill towns.
It combines breathtaking views of
the Tuscan vineyards and olive
groves with a history to the pre-
Roman Etruscans. The high quali-
ty wines made from the
Montepulciano grape actually
come from Abruzzi, although II
Nobile de Montepulciano is made
here. Another fascinating hill
town is Montalcino where the
large winery Castello Banfi is
Of course, between tasting the
Chiantis, Super Tuscans and
Montepulcianos there is the
world famous art in Florence,
home of the Medicis, including
the spectacular Duomo and sever-
al Michelangelos including his
David and Pieta.
Closer to home, but worth a 4-
5-day trip, is the emerging wine
country of Yadkin Valley, North
Carolina. We visited this surpris-
ing area in October, enjoying the
fall foliage along the Blue Ridge.
Straddling 1-77 just below the
Virginia line, some three dozen
vineyards have sprung up, prima-

rily on former tobacco farms.
Most of these vineyards are
young three-to-five years old
- which means the vines aren't
mature enough to produce high
quality wines, although there
were some surprises.
Westbend, the oldest winery in
the Valley (1972), produces three
very drinkable wines. Carolina
Cuvee, a smooth, dry red with
deep fruit flavors and some spice,
was our favorite; it is a blend of
cabernet, merlot and a grape that
is becoming a mid-Atlantic
favorite, chambourcin, which
gives the spice. The less-dry reis-
ling and a very crisp and clean
chardonnay were the others from
this vintner we liked.
Other wines we rated highly
were: Laurel Gray's French-style
chardonnay, a dark and moody
pinot noir from Black Wolf, and
Old North State Winery's
Prelude, a light, dry red blend of
cabernet, merlot and cham-
One Yadkin Valley winery to
watch is Raffaldini which is
focused on Italian-style wines with
sangiovese and dolcetto vines
planted. This 650-year-old family
from Lombardy is planning an
Italian restaurant in a very pretty
hillside location amid the vine-
yards. Their wines are too young
today, but have great promise.
All the Yadkin Valley wineries
are worthy of watching as the cli-
mate, soil and geography are
ideal, not much different than
Burgundy. It will be interesting to
see them develop. None of them
is large enough to produce for
wide distribution, so for now we
must go there. September har-
vest time is an interesting time to
go to see the "crush," but that's
too early for fall foliage. In the
second week of October, as the
leaves are turning high on the
Blue Ridge, many of these winer-
ies have their own festivals and
special events.
The Great Grapes Wine
Festival is held in Charlotte at this
time and you can sample the
offerings of some 60 North
Carolina wineries. But visiting the
wineries themselves and taking
the tours is more fun.
For those interested in
California wines, the Taste of
California at the San Mateo
County Fairgrounds on May 22
will enable you to sample some
200 California vintners. And there
is the Paraiso Harvest Festival in
Soledad, Monterey in mid-
