most that can be legitimately
claimed in advertising is that the

The current gasoline prices
are a big budget item for those

of the city's Planning Advisory
Board complained to the city man-

issue in the campaign for city com-

April 12 election.
The stop-work order was issued

NAACP honors 6 with 'freedom awards'
GLENDA S. JENKINS
The Nassau County branch of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP) honored six local citi-
zens Saturday in conjunction with
its annual Freedom Fund Awards
Branch vice president Verna
Bell, environmentalist MaVynee
Betsch, James Delaney, Margie

Kavanaugh and the Elks
Oceanfront Lodge #1410 received
awards for their contributions to
the NAACP's mission.
Mary A Pearson, NAACP area
director, and Adora Obi Nweze,
president of the Florida State
Conference of Branches, received
plaques for their outstanding lead-
ership, representing the organiza-
tion at the state and national level.
The awards banquet, centered
around the theme "The Time is
Now," highlighted the branch's
accomplishments and presented
the NAACP's national and state
civil rights agenda. The event also
benefits the branch's future proj-
ects and programs.
Nationally the organization is
preparing to guard the Voting

Patricia Thompson said the organ-

"After we encourage them to
register and vote, educate them on
the candidates and on the issues.
What do the candidates have to
offer to us? That is what we need to
know," said Thompson, who served
as Fernandina Beach's first black
female city commissioner.
"President Thompson is doing
a great job here in Nassau County,"
Nweze said. "She's addressing
many of the issues as she gets
them from the state ... I'm just
very proud of her leadership and
what is happening here with the
Nassau County branch."
The Nassau County branch has
conducted door-to-door canvass-
ing campaigns to encourage voters
to go to the polls, Thompson said.
"We cannot endorse candidates,
but we can endorse the issues. We
can enforce whatever is beneficial
to us," Thompson said.
"We want to ask (candidates),
'What do you have to offer us?'"
"What can you do to maintain
our quality of life in the city?"

City code review nears end
For the News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers may approve a new Land
Development Code in late May after
months of review by a consultant,
city staff, planning board and pub-
Tuesday night Gail Easley, a
planning consultant, told commis-
sioners that rules outlined in the
city's current Land Development
Code and the comprehensive plan
for the city's future are incompatible
and must be reconciled.
The code defines zoning dis-
tricts, details overlay districts and
rules and regulations for develop-
ment within Fernandina Beach. The
comprehensive plan is the city's
master plan for development
Easley, of Gail Easley Co., based
in Crystal River, was contracted by
the commissioners to draft a pro-
posed revision of the city's land
development code in early
September, and has been explaining
its various aspects to the city com-
missioners, the Planning Advisory
Board and public through work-
shops and meetings.
"It has been a very smooth oper-
ation so far, with everyone having
the opportunity to contribute their
ideas," said City Manager Bob
Commissioners may approve a new Land
Development Code in late May.
"It really does strengthen the
final product to have so many peo-
ple paying attention to it and point-
ing out things that we might need to
talk about further," Easley said.
The need for a revamping of the
city's current development code
comes with the progress of time.
The current Land Development
Code was last updated more than
five years ago.
"All we're trying to do is write
down the rules," Easley said.
'Twenty years ago itwas really easy.
We could all sit around and review
things together because there was-
n't much going on. Now we've got
state laws, federal laws, compre-
hensive plan requirements and a
lot of lawsuits. And now we need to
be more clear about those things."
As the city grows, compatibility
of new development with existing
development becomes an issue.
The proposed code considers the
relationship of a proposed devel-
opment with its surrounding neigh-
"Your code needs to give you
some plan, some rationale and pro-
cedure to evaluate compatibility and
say yes or no based on compatibil-
ity,'" Easley told the commission-
ers. "Thafs what is missing in a lot
One proposal in the draft Land
Development Code is to consoli-
date the Board of Adjustment with
the Planning Advisory Board.
Currently each board makes sepa-
rate decisions, with the Board of
Adjustment looking at variances
from code in building plans and the
planning board taking a broader
"If you've got development
issues being decided by the same
board, I think there'll be better deci-
sions ultimately," Easley said,
adding she has seen the consolida-
tion benefit a number of communi-
ties with which she has worked.
"They each deal with a piece of
the total development picture with-
out seeing the rest of it," Easley
said. "By consolidating they'd have
a complete view of the develop
they'd have to approve."
The proposed consolidation will
be discussed further before a deci-
sion is made. "I want to make sure
how it works for us first," said
Mayor Greg Roland. He noted it
will streamline the process for the
builder, but wants to assure ade-
quate protection of community
A final draft of the code could be
ready as early as the end of May.
"Once we get into the official
process we will have at least three
public meetings on it," Roland said.
"Once we get to that point it should
be a pretty good product."
The Planning Advisory Board
will have a public hearing to receive
input, then give the comments to
the commission for review. A first
reading in ordinance form will be
held to adopt it, then a second pub-
lic hearing will be held within 30
Easley recommended the com-
missioners utilize a delayed adop-
tion process. For example, if the
new Land Development Code were
approved on June 1, having it go in
effect a month or so later to give
adequate time for staff training and
public awareness of the new code.
A special meeting will be set in
early May to discuss and possibly
make decisions on zoning districts.
A copy of the draft code can be
found under community develop-
ment -at http://www.fernandin-

shortcomings, including a failure

Assets and liabilities
The Nassau County School District had total net assets of
$109.5 million as of June 2004, compared to $103.3 million
the previous year, according to the Florida Auditor General.
Total liabilities were $14.1 million, compared to $12.4 mil-
lion the previous year.
The food service department
used actual bank deposits as the
basis for recording its revenues
rather than cafeteria sales, "effec-
tively bypassing the system's con-
trols" and leaving room for fraud
or error, the audit stated.
Similarly, it found the trans-
portation department at risk for
fraud because there was no sepa-
ration of custody and record keep-
In his response, Ruis said the
district has developed a system to

arating the functions of recording

In its other findings the audit
said the district could enhance its
internal control system by devel-
oping more comprehensive proce-
dures manuals for its financial oper-
ations, something Ruis said is an
ongoing project in the finance office.
The auditor also found that
annual facility inspection reports
were not submitted to the board for
approval, increasing the risk of defi-
ciencies not being properly
addressed: Ruis said that was a mis-
brought before the board for their
review and approval."
Other findings concerned the
district's lack of oversight of its
Qualified Zone Academy Bonds, in
one case failing to properly docu-
ment which investment banking
firm it used or the basis for a 5 per-
cent fee, totaling $71,429. However,
Ruis said the firm "was the leading
authority in the nation" dealing with
the issuance of the bonds and that
by the time the district learned it
was eligible to participate in the
bonding program, "time was of the
essence." He added, "The place-
ment agent provided valuable guid-
ance in achieving the award of these
funds for the district and was well
worth the fee the company was
Criticisms about compliance
with different federal and state pro-
grams, such as the free and reduced
lunch initiative, were due to chang-
ing demographics, said Ruis. There
was a "reasonable expectation" the
schools for which the district sought
funding would be eligible based on
existing information, he said.

Where shall wisdom be
found? Try your local library...
n an age where speed, productivity, and imme-
diacy reign, it takes someone like
Haiold Bloom, author of Where
Shall Wisdom Be Found, to ask the
kind of question that invites us to take
a moment from our busy lives to pon-
der what is most profound and lasting
Could it be that Homer,
Cervantes, Hemingway and even St.
Exupery are still relevant today?
Even if it's been decades since you
cracked open one of the classics,
you may have learned a lesson in a
story that you remember now and .
again and recognized that it is -
timeless in its value.
Bloom is Sterling Professor of
Humanities at Yale University and Berg
Professor of English at New York University. In
Where Shall Wisdom Be Found, he takes readers
from the Bible to 20th century writing, searching
for ways literature informs and enriches our lives.
So where shall wisdom be found? At the library.
April marks National Library Month, a time we can
be grateful for our libraries, the freedom to read
and the freedom to learn. It's a place we create and
maintain with our tax dollars to hold our collective
knowledge as a community and as a society. It is
open to all for learning, searching, growing and
understanding. It's the one public service that goes
beyond our immediate needs (roads, utilities, safe-
ty) to support high level goals such as an educated,
Travel to a third-world country and you may
notice that there are few public libraries, some-
times none at all. Even bookstores may be hard to
find or not well stocked. It can feel like quite a privi-
lege to know that we can pick up a book for free,
escape to another era, travel to another country,
satisfy our curiosity, laugh out loud, or have a story
touch our hearts. The opportunities number in the
thousands and they are available in the collection of
books, audiotapes, CD and DVDs at the library.
Two other recent books have
gained widespread attention ahd
are worth reading for National
I library Month. The Librarian of
T Basra by Jeanette Winter is the
true story of how Alia Muhammad
Baker, a librarian in the Iraqi city of
Basra, found a way to protect her
community's priceless collection of
books. Written in language simple
enough for young children to under-
stand, the story is rich with mes-
sages: it is important to preserve
knowledge; and.literature has the abili-
ty to connect us.
On the bestseller lists for months is
Reading Lolita in Tehran, a memoir of
Azar Nafisi, an inspired teacher who secretly gath-
ered seven of her most committed female students
to read forbidden Western classics. They risked
removing their veils and immersed themselves in
the world of Nabokov, Jane Austen, E Scott
Fitzgerald and Henry James amidst the tyranny in
Iran. Reading groups have savored this book and it
has prompted much discussion about the value of
reading for a healthy and free society.
Whether you take an extra trip to the library in
April, sign up for your library card, join the Friends
of the Library, or simply take time to read, National
Library Month is an occasion worth celebrating.

After Professor Province interviews my wife's
kin in Georgia, he might drive over to Gadsden,
Ala., and interview my aunt, Gertie Hudgins
Gunter. She turned 97 on March 18. Seven of the
Hudgins clan and the husband of one of them
rode over in a van to wish her a happy birthday.
Gertie gets her nourishment from a feeding tube,
but only because she has a problem with diges-
tion. She does eat her brother Alton's birthday
So, Professor Province, we need to find out the
common denominator with these five people.
Maybe it's healthy food. No, that's not it. Three of
the five could eat Burger King's new Enormbus
Omelet Sandwich every day all 730 calories of it
- and never need a Trims.
Maybe it's physical activity. Couldn't be. No
one can remember the last public job Uncle Paul
had. The family explanation is, he cooked while
his wife worked. Vague memory suggests he once
painted houses for a living.
So why do some people live so long, professor?
That's what he Wants to find out by gathering
genetic and health information from more than
3,000 long-lived volunteers and their descendants.
None of our folks has been contacted. "The trick,"
Professor Province said, "is not just to live long,
but to live disease free. We want to find out how
people do it."
And then he said something important '"There
is preliminary evidence from many sources that
genes play a significant role, especially for the old-
est of the old, those who live past 100."
I bet that's it, professor. Must be the genes. Of
course, for the men, attention from good Waffle
House waitresses can add a few years, too.

n the field of psychology they are known as
"Aha! moments," those brief instances when the
veil is lifted, the light goes on and everything
suddenly comes into focus. Such moments may
be fleeting before confusion and mystery regain
their grip on our faculties, but we need to take advan-
tage of them whenever they occur, no matter how
brief they may be. Such a moment has happened
recently in Fernandina Beach, and the impetus that
threw "the switch" was the recognition that the three
houses under construction in the 2200 block of
South Fletcher "just don't look right."
As most of you will recall, construction of the first
house started a couple of months ago and quickly
caught the attention of passersby, as well as this
newspaper, which featured a front-page article (Feb.
23) entitled, 'Tall, close-new style for beach homes?"
In retrospect, the paper could have omitted the ques-
tion mark since it appears that is exactly the direc-
tion the city is headed. "Houses are larger today than
they built years ago, and (the house on South
Fletcher) does look out of scale," City Manager
Robert Mearnssaid at the time, but he hastened to
add that he believed the house complied with city
Of course, not everyone shared that belief. Local
architect John Cotner, who has worked with building
officials for over 25 years, believed the first house
was either too tall or too close to its neighbor on the
south side. Cotner said there shouldn't be an eco-
nomic benefit for not going by the rules. He summa-
rized his thoughts by saying, "What does bother me
is when I go by the book and tell my clients they
can't do this, and they see it being done (other
places). There's no way you can construe that
(house) to meet the requirements."
And Cotner ought to know. In 2004 he was a
member of a building height subcommittee that had
recommended the city should modify its codes in
order to allow taller homes with smaller setbacks.
(Think about it: Even an architect that favors taller
and wider homes along the beach recognizes the
new houses are out of compli-
ance.) Other members on that
subcommittee included Mark
Bennett, Bob Howat, Ron Flick
l -2. and Art Sanchez. With Bennett
|1 and Howat voicing strong oppo-
sition against weakening the
code, the Planning Advisory
Board sent its recommenda-
tions to the city commission
without taking a formal vote on
Mike Boyle it. If left unchanged, the current
setback restrictions for a 35-foot
.- .. tall house on the beach would
WAIT A require 10 feet on each side,
MINUTE leaving only 30 feet upon which
to build if you have a 50-foot lot
like the ones in question on
South Fletcher. To date, those proposed changes to
relax the restrictions.have never been adopted by
the city commission.
If you are wondering how there could be so many
examples of questionable decisions relating to build-
ing codes within the city, you need to understand the
revolving-door environment that permeated the plan-
ningand building departments over the last few
years. To begin with, City Manager Robert Mearns
eliminated the position of community development
director when the last one, Bob Jarzen, left after
three years due to "philosophical differences" with
Mearns. That position used to supervise both the
planning and building departments, but after
Jarzen's departure the heads of those two depart-
ments now report directly to Mearns.
Anne Catinna became the planning director in
2003, but she was demoted by Mearns in 2004. She
was temporarily replaced by Jennifer Gooding, city
grants writer and airport manager. The current plan-
ning director, Lupita McClenning, replaced Gooding
within weeks in 2004. (Try to keep up.)
In August, 2003, two more city planners lost their
jobs after they clashed with developer Dan
McCranie Jr. over code requirements related to his
195-home Ocean Breeze project between Bailey and
Simmons Roads in the middle of Amelia Island. One
of them had only been on the job for five months,
having replaced another planner, Danielle Glouner,
who had resigned in March of the same year. Before
her departure planner Mary Helen Duke sent an e-
mail to planning board members advising them, "It
is evident to me that sporadic, limited enforcement
of city codes has been the rule of thumb in the past. I
encourage each of you to do what you can to ensure
the laws of the city related to planning and develop-
ment as outlined in the Land Development Code be
enforced." (What a great idea!)
When asked about the rapid turnover of city staff
in key planning positions in 2004, Mearns said such
turnover is not an indication of loss of quality in the
planning office, and added, "We're getting better." In
addressing the loss of two planners at the same time,
he said, "Some people can deal with the public, and
some people can't. Some people fit, and some people
In the current situation it appears that city
Building Official John Santoloci and code enforce-
ment officer Jack Ouellette are the kind of city
employees that "fit," since they reported the new
houses are in compliance with city code restrictions
(it's all a matter of "interpretation").
The builder of those homes (and others on the
island) is Art Sanchez, who was on the city's build-
ing height subcommittee that wanted to loosen
restrictions on setbacks for substandard 50-foot lots
back in 2004.
Perhaps it is time for someone to remind local
builders that the plan to filet the existing building
codes was never approved, and since the city manag-
er has taken on the role of the community develop-
ment director, he would be my choice to deliver that

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
The present city commission has certainly turned
Fernandina Beach into consultants' heaven.
Apparently the commission has never met a consult-
ant they didn't want to spend tax dollars on. When they
don't like one consultant's report no problem; they
just spend more taxpayers' money to hire another
consultant to study and report on the same issue.
No wonder our taxes keep going up!
I wholeheartedly agree with the content of ("What
about God's creation?,". March 2). I am a homebuilder.
It is growth that provides me my livelihood. However,
I believe that there is a better way to ensure that the
land is used rather than abused. As a lifelong resi-
dent of Nassau County, I recall how things were when
I was a child. It breaks my'heart to see what has hap-
Spned to' the niany acres pof once bed~itifullafid 'all
'be&buse our county wonYt enact'Itricter measures to
ensure there will be mature natural growth on every
piece of property that is developed.
If you take a drive down Barnwell Road, you will see
very nice housing communities that have been devel-
oped so that we can live in harmony with nature,
rather than decimate it. Large, mature trees are a pre-
dominant feature as are vegetative buffers. All of this
provides the property owner with privacy, the much
sought after aesthetics of large trees, as well as some
habitat for the wildlife.
The brainchild of the bulk of the developments in
Nassau County with such character and considera-
tion for nature is Mr. Bob Allison. He has tastefully and
thoughtfully developed acres of land without ravaging
the landscape with heavy equipment. Why can't every
developer conform to such standards? Why does there
have to be such needless destruction? Natural vege-
tation and trees are becoming less and less common-
place, and there is no reason why it has to be this
Our county government needs to take a stand and
hold developers accountable for their actions. They
should ensure that every parcel of land retains some
of its natural beauty.
It takes years to replace what takes only seconds to
destroy. If developing is allowed to continue as it is,
then there will be no natural vegetation remaining. Our
community will have lost what has made it so attrac-
tive to everyone.

Save on taxes
Congress decided that taxpayers may deduct state
and local taxes in their 2004 tax return. There are two
state and county taxes most people overlook, namely
motor fuel and communications.
The fuel tax is known as a hidden tax. Just try to find
out what itis at a gas station! The five that I visited had-
n't the slightest idea what the rate was or how to find
it. It used to be posted on the pump. Fortunately, our
.county finance department provided the following
website, www.state.fl.us/Icir. Follow the leader, dataA
to Z, index to fuel tax rates. Voila!! Tables showing more
than you need for every county in Florida. On page 226
there is a major block Motor Fuel Tax Rates with state
imposed and also locally imposed taxes. The Nassau
County total of the three groups for state is 21.9 cents
per gallon and for the two groups for local Nassau
County is 7 cents per gallon or a total of 28.9 cents for
both gasoline and diesel.
You can estimate how much fuel you bought in
2004 by the miles driven per vehicle divided by your
miles per gallon rate. Using actual gas.purchased data
yielded a $162, deduction for us.
The communication taxes are listed on your month-
ly bill. Only use the ones that say state and local tax.
Service charges are not deductible. For us, a cell

Music a lifestyle for Yulee
The Rev. Stephen Bickel, minister of
music/associate pastor of Yulee Baptist Church,
reflects on music: "A few months ago I quoted the
minister and creative consultant for Disney World,
'If you are going to take people to Jesus, you must
be there first. Music is a lifestyle. Be there first;
give it away.'
"Psalms 40:16 says, 'May all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love
your salvation always say, The Lord Be exalted!'
The goal and mission of the music ministry is to
exalt the Lord and present him to others. This
becomes a musical lifestyle as the Gospel mes-
sage is presented through the means of music.
The choir invited all to worship with them March
20 as they exalted the Lord through the Easter
Cantata, 'Believe.' In this time of worship, you will
have experienced congregational singing, choral
singing, solos, narration from the choir, narration
by video from Biblical characters Pilate, Caiphas,
Thomas, John and Mary (Mother of Jesus) and
the majestic soundtrack of orchestral accompani-
ment. Hearts will be touched and lives changed as
you participated in this time of exaltation.
"In this fast moving age, set aside a time of day
to turn off all the technology that keeps buzzing:
phones, computers, pagers, e-mail, television, etc.
Use this noise break to sit quietly with thoughts,
prayers, hopes and dreams. Listen to and follow
the voice of God. And while you are at it, come
join the choir as we proclaim the love of God."
The Rev. Thomas Keisler Jr. is pastor. Minister
of youth is Julie Peterson.
The Rev. William (Bill) Heiser, music/youth
minister of Blackrock Baptist Church, writes from
The Beacon newsletter: "Genesis 12:1 'Now the
Lord said to Abram, go forth from your country,
and from your relatives, and from you father's
house, to the land which I will show you.' And
when you read the rest of the account, not only
did Abram obey, but the Lord blessed him.
"As many of you already know, God has called
Donna and me to go unto a new ministry which
He is going to show us. Even though we will be
here only a few more weeks doesn't mean things
"The choir is going full speed as we prepare for
Easter. We have quite a few new choir members,
but there are still a few spots open so come join
._.us-.. _-- .. _.. --. .. .--- -- .....
S"It's hard fto believe that we liace b'.in hI,-re ,
almost seven years. My family will always treas-
ure these years and will keep the Blackrock fami-
ly in our prayers. I just ask you all to keep us in
your prayers as God opens a new chapter in our
lives." Brother Bill, Donna, Lindsey, Amy and
Scott and family.
May God continue to bless this dedicated fami-
ly. Our prayers and good wishes go out to them.

time dedicated pastor, and this church will cer-
tainly miss this family. May we all continue to pray
The Rev. Neal Thompson, pastor of North
Hilliard Baptist Church, reports on their joint
revival with Live Oak Baptist, where the Rev.
Steve Wolgamott is pastor. "The remainder of our
joint revival with Live Oak was marvelous.
Brother Mark Canipe is the most evangelistic
preacher I have ever listened to. He preached a
wonderful message on Moses and the burning
bush. It really had the congregation inspired to
serve the Lord. I was so inspired that I made a
charge to our church about the visions that I see
for our church. I gave my congregation a 'vision'
that I want for our church. This revival has really
'inspired our two men of God who are going into
the ministry: Ricky Hurst and Clint Hoffman.
After Easter, we are going to form an Evangelism
Committee. This committee will meet and work
on the vision for our church. I am looking forward
to the joint revival in the fall with Live Oak.
Brother Steve Wolgamott is a fabulous preacher
and man of God. I know that he and I are on fire
for the Lord.
"Our BMU and Brotherhood are ready to go
out into the lost world also. Our ladies had break-
fast on March 19 and went visiting afterwards.
They had a marvelous attendance and response
from the visitation. Our men will be starting a

FRIDAY. APRIL 1, 2005/News-Leader
As clocks spring ahead, remember the new dawn of the resurrection
"After the Sabbath, at dawn on
the first day of the week, Mary
Magdalene and the other Mary
went to look at the tomb... The
angel said to the women, 'Do not
be afraid, for I know that you are
looking for Jesus, who was cruci-
fied. He is not here; he has risen,
just as he said.'" (Matthew
In one of my tender years of
ordained ministry I barely
escaped the horror of all horrors
for a pastor, and that, on Easter
Sunday. My wife Lauren and I
lived in a home owned by the
church, right across the street
from the fellowship hall. I wanted
to get an early jump on the day,
and so rising early I ate breakfast,
took a shower and dressed for
church. With a good hour-and-a-
half to go, I thought I had plenty
of time to review my notes and
make my way into the nearby

NOTES see more
at the church, and my flock slow-
ly making their way into the sanc-
tuary. I wondered what in the
world was going on, until the
three dreaded words sprang into
my rapidly numbing mind:
"Daylight Savings Time."
"Lauren, we're late! We forgot
to change the clocks!" were the
only words I shouted before run-
ning out the door. By the middle
of the first hymn I was unbeliev-
ably impressed to see my wife
make her way down the aisle to
sit in the nearest open pew. In a
matter of seconds, after greeting
her pew mates, they all began to
snicker uncontrollably. We were
I imagine some of you can
identify with that sinking feeling,
when you discover you're late. If
you haven't, then repeat after me:
"There but by the grace of God,
We read in scripture that the
women came to the tomb at
dawn. The rising of the sun and
the dawn of a new day have
always held great spiritual signifi-
cance for Christians. As the dis-
covery of the risen Christ comes
at dawn, so too his resurrection
signals the hope of a new day for
people of faith. As we read from
the prophet Isaiah: "Then your
light will break forth like the
dawn, and your healing will
quickly appear; then your right-
eousness will go before you, and
the glory of the Lord will be your
rear guard. Then you will call,
and the Lord will answer; you will
call for help, and he will say:
'Here am I.'" (Isaiah 58:8-9a)
Interestingly I saw this
demonstrated dramatically in
Italy a few weeks ago. As our tour
group entered the western door
of the Domo (the cathedral in
Florence) we looked east to the
ever increasing majesty of art and
design portraying the glory and
redemption of God in Jesus
The cathedral was designed in
just this manner to look toward
the east, symbolically represent-
ing the coming dawn of God's
new heaven and earth.
And so that the people of
Florence might never lose track
of the importance of this new
dawn, the clock on the western
wall tells time as no other clock in
With its expansive brass
hands and numbers on green,
white and pink marble this clock
informs of the hours passed since
the last sunset; also indicating the
time to the next sunrise. Indeed,
though there may be many hours
to go before the darkness of our
world gives way to light, Jesus
Christ is risen and he is ushering
in a new dawn.
The sinking reality of life (of
time) is that the power of death
cannot be denied. But its power is
not ultimate! The resurrection of
Jesus Christ tells us that though
time may not be on our side, the
creator of life, is.
What great love.

FRIDAY, APRIL 1.2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader
V LEISURE TIME
Buying a second home
CHARLES J. KOVALESKI
For the News-Leader
With its perfect weather and beau-
tiful coastline, Florida has long had
more vacation homes than any other
region in the country.
The second-home market repre-
sents a major segment of real estate
sales throughout the state, both for
buying vacation homes:and future
According to the Nitional
Association of Realtors'second-home
sales are booming and'Florida is again
one of the top destinations. Sales of
second homes nationwide have
increased by nearly 25 percent since
Reasons to consider buying a vaca-
tion home are as varied as the homes
themselves. For some, it is simply a
lifestyle choice; for others, especially
among baby-boomers, purchasing a
vacation home creates a family retreat,
a place to reconnect and spend time
Others interested in buying a vaca-
tion home could be looking for a jump-
start on their retirement homes, or
something to pass along to future gen-
erations, and many buyers of second
homes are simply looking for a solid
real estate investment.
Whatever the reason for buying a
second home, consider the following
before taking the vacation-home
Location. If you're looking to buy,
the most important thing to consider
is location. Is this a place you and your
family would want to visit regularly?
Are there enough recreational activi-
ties for multiple generations of family?
Is it close enough to the beach, lake or
river? Can it be used year-round?
Sixty-one percent of vacation homes
are located in resort or recreation
areas, another 20 percent are in rural
areas. Consider the distance from
your primary residence, and how long
it will take to drive there in Friday
evening traffic. Most vacation homes
are less than 200 miles from the pri-
mary residence; 42 percent are in the
Take your time: Buying a vaca-
tion home is not a snap decision, and it
doesn't need to be. Most buyers of
second homes are under no pressure
to buy, since it's not the primary resi-
dence. Most buyers take as much as
three years or more to make a deci-
sion about buying a second home, and
many spend several years renting in
the area before deciding to buy.
Consult the experts. When pur-
chasing a vacation home, it's tempting
to forego the usual formalities of the
real estate market. In fact, fewer than
half the vacation homes purchased last
year were bought through a real
estate agent or broker; with 38 percent
purchased directly from the previous
owner. Nearly half of the for-sale-by-
owner transactions involved buyers
purchasing directly from someone
they knew beforehand, such as a
friend, family member or acquain-
tance. Even if you are dealing with
someOne you know, ifs important that
your real estate attorney reviews all
contracts before you sign them. And,
to ensure you find the best home to fit
your needs, you're well-served to hire
a Realtor to help you with your search.
Consider tax implications. The
IRS allows a deduction on the interest
from a second home. Many homebuy-
ers also end up declaring their second
home as their permanent residence in
order to receive the $25,000 Florida
homestead exemption. Residents must
be registered to vote, register their car
and maintain a Florida driver's license
to qualify for the exemption. There is
no requirement on how much time the
owner has to spend in the home.
Shop around. Make sure you've
thoroughly shopped the mortgage
market, since vacation home loans
usually require more money down and
carry higher interest rates than those
for primary residences. The reason is
that people are more likely to default
on a secondary home or vacation
home than a primary residence, so
lenders are looking for people with
flawless credit and more assets since
they will be making two payments.
Be prepared for a downturn.
Resale values of second homes are far
more volatile than those of primary
homes, especially in the upper price
brackets. Second homes are discre-
tionary investments, so when the
economy goes south, second-home
values suffer earlier and more dramati-

'Evergreen' a loose term
Q .We are going to try to maintain our
.yard ourselves this year. I purchased
15-0-15, applied it and then realized it said it
was for centipede grass. Will this be OK?
Also, we have a lot of weed that reminds me
of strawberry plants. What do we do with
this? Thanks for any input you can give. PP
A .You may use the fertilizer 150-15. In
..fact, I have seen this product and it has
a large amount of the nitrogen, about 50 per-
cent, which is slow release. This slow release
nitrogen will provide some nitrogen for the
plant to absorb a few weeks after the quick
release nitrogen has been absorbed by the
grass. The University of Florida suggests
you fertilize in March and again in August or
September. Apply an iron sulfate product
during the summer and be sure it contains
very little nitrogen. The weed you described
may be Indian Mockstrawberry or Oldfield
Cinquefoil. Either way, it is a perennial
broadleaf weed and you can use a broadleaf
weed killer on it as long as the product can
be used on your St. Augustine grass. Be sure
to read the directions carefully and complete-
ly before applying it to your lawn. We would
also suggest you apply it only where you
have the weed problem (called spot treating)
rather than spreading it all over the lawn.
Q.Why do they call some trees and
*.shrubs evergreen (like Magnolias)
when we know they lose some of their leaves
so they can't be "evergreen"? TB
A The term evergreen is a loosely used
Cl.term by the general public, which gen-
erally means a tree retains its leaves year-
round. Deciduous refers to those trees that
drop all or most of their leaves when the tem-
peratures drop and the amount of sunlight
exposure diminishes. It is interesting that
you chose magnolias because this family has
some trees that are deciduous; some are
evergreen and even a semi-evergreen.
However, it is important
to note that even if a
tree is classified as
"evergreen," it does not
mean it never loses its
1^ they do not lose all of,
their leaves at the same
time or season. Pines
S are considered ever-
.-. |green but obviously
Becky they lose their leaves
fordi occasionally because we
j ___ collect them and use
... them as mulch. Even
Garden the Southern Magnolia,
Talk which is considered
evergreen, loses some
of its leaves throughout the year. Little Gem
and St Mary are two of the more familiar
cultivars of Southern magnolia. Sweetbay
Magnolia is the member of the magnolia
family that is classified as semi-evergreen.
Many of the magnolia trees are classified
as deciduous and one such tree is the
Cucumber Magnolia which produces pale
yellow flowers. Another large group of decid-
uous magnolias growing in this area include
the cultivars Alexandrina, Brozzonii, Deep
Purple Dreams and Grace McDade. Star
Magnolia is another group of deciduous
magnolias, which produce small white flow-
ers and can reach a mature growth height of
about 20 feet The Gresham hybrids are the
tallest and produce the largest flowers. Many
of the Gresham hybrids are well suited for
Florida such as Jon Jon, Pink Goblet, Royal
Crown and Winelight. !

have learned who their heroes really are during their musical production of "Heroes." Under
the direction of music teacher Mary Ann Salis the students portrayed a classroom doing a writ-
ing project on what a hero is. Andi Williams played the teacher while Sierra Diamond and
Haylee Wrye performed vocal solds. Others played students trying to make good choices about
who is their hero. In the end the musical concludes with the students discovering that the real
hero lies within themselves.

maybe they have an
Cincinnati Reds out-
fielder Ken Griffey Jr. may
feel that way, having suffered
through one injury after
another since he joined the
Reds in a trade with Seattle.
I have one such patient
who likely feels the same
way. His name is Taylor, and
he is a great guy and a good
18-year-old soccer player. But
unfortunately, it appears that
his knees may not built for
soccer. He sustained a right
knee ACL tear a few years
ago, and this was surgically
treated with an ACL recon-
struction. He then re-tore the
same right knee about a year
and a half ago, had surgery
again and had recently got-
ten back to play.
He was excited about the
start of his senior season of
high school soccer. During
one of the early season prac-
tices, he cut hard and this
time felt that terrible tearing
sensation that he had
become all to familiar with in
his left knee. He was seen in
my office and examined, and
it was again confirmed that
he had torn his ACL.
This is Taylor's third ACL
injury, two on the right and
one on the left. He does like-
ly have some hereditary pre-
disposition. With that in
mind, following is a column I
wrote about Taylor three
Taylor was moving quick-
ly down the field with the
ball, and only one player
stood between him and the
goal. As he went to make his
move, the 15-year-old planted
his left foot and cut hard to
the-right, and the he heard
a loud pup and hi- leftkfee .
simply collapsed. He felt a
terrible pain in his knee and
fell to the ground. Taylor's
soccer coach quickly
reached his player, who was
lying on the field, and Taylor
reported that his bent knee
felt out of place.
Taylor was assisted in
straightening his knee, and
his knee clunked back into
its proper position and his
pain was reduced. He was
now able to stand and walk,
although his knee felt very
weak and soon began to
swell. Taylor's coach hap-
pened to be a physical thera-
pist and he suspected that
Taylor had "blown out his
knee," the dreaded phrase
used to describe tearing of
the anterior cruciate liga-
ment, or ACL.
He recommended to the
player's parents that they see
an orthopedic surgeon and
asked if they knew any. Mom
stated that they did and that
they knew what all of this
"ACL business" meant.
Turns out, I had surgically
repaired their daughter's
torn ACL just a few years
When I saw Taylor and
confirmed that he had
indeed torn his ACL and that
he too would require surgery
to rebuild his knee, his par-
ents couldn't believe their
family's bad luck. They
asked if I had ever had such
a pair of cases, where broth-
ers or sisters had torn their
ACLs. At that time I had not,
but since I have had one
other example of similar sib-
lings. In fact, this other case
involved a set of twin boys,
one who tore his ACL in
karate and the other who
sustained the same injury a
week later jumping on a
Dr. Peter Fowler of the
University of Western
Ontario and London Health
Science Center wondered as
well how common these sib-
ling related injuries
occurred. He recently pre-
sented the results of his
study at the annual meeting
of the American Academy of
Orthopedic Surgeons. His
findings were that the sibling
of an ACIAnjured patient was
twice as likely to sustain the
same injury as the normal
population. In fact, if one sib-
ling had previously torn her
ACL, the study revealed that

Ryan Estes was on the mound for the Pirates. He
scattered 10 hits in picking up his third win of the sea-
son. He struck out four batters and walked one.
"Will Harris' bases-loaded double in the fourth
was the big hit," Fernandina Beach High School
Coach Ken Roland said. ..
The Pirates had five extra-base hits in the game
with doubles from Hunter Burbank, Chris Conley,
Harris (2) and a triple by Brett Moore.
"We were not very sharp on defense," Roland said.
"We made several mental mistakes that cost us oppor-
tunities to get outs and left our team on the field too
long. You can't win games by giving teams four and
The Pirates jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the top of
the third and added a pair of runs in the fourth and
one in the seventh.
The win came on the heels of last week's two-win
performance in the Diamond. Classic, hosted by the
Pirates during spring break. FBHS topped Orange
Park 9-6 and upset a ranked Gainesville High School
"Sophomore right-hander Kevin Beck pitched an
outstanding game," Roland said. "He matched Stetson
University signee Mark Gentry pitch for pitch, only
giving up three hits against the No. 2 ranked 4A team
in the state."
The Pirates (8-6)' traveled to Andrew Jackson
Thursday and added tonight's game against
Benedictine out of Savannah, Ga., to the schedule.
First pitch is at 6 p.m. at The Ballpark at Fernandina.
Next week, the Pirates host Stanton on Tuesday

Inaugural tournament singles
champion Martina Navratilova has
committed to play doubles at the
2005 Bausch & Lomb Champion-
ships, and tournament officials also
received confirmation that No. 11
in the world, Vera Zvonareva, will
compete in the 56-player singles
Returning for the 26th year, this
world-class Sony Ericsson WTA
Tour event is scheduled to take
place Monday through April 10 at
Amelia Island Plantation.
"It's exciting to have Martina
Navratilova play doubles at the
Bausch & Lomb Championships
this year. She is the greatest
women's player in the world and
we are honored to have her return
to play doubles at Amelia Island,"
said tournament director, John
Arrix. 'This year, we have a tal-
ented singles draw. With the addi-
tion 6f Zvonareva it adds even
more depth to the field."
Navratilova holds 167 singles
career titles, more than any man or
woman professional tennis player
in the world, and 174 doubles titles.
Seven doubles ties were won in
2003, and an additional title was
captured in 2004 at Vienna with
doubles partner, Lisa Raymond.
Navratilova's 2005 doubles
showing includes quarterfinal
gains at Gold Coast, the Australian
Open and Hyderabad. Navratilova
has never captured the Bausch &

ments, one in 1989 with Pam
Shriver and again in 2001 with
Last year, Navratilova reached

Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles
title this year at Memphis. This
win gave Zvonareva the distinc-
tion as the second straight top seed
winner at Memphis, joining Ray-
mond as the only multiple winner
at this event.
In 2004, Zvonareva earned her
second Sony Ericsson WTA Tour
title at Memphis where she defeat-
ed Maria Sharapova in the semifi-

FREE "LIVING TRUST" SEMINAR
Find out how you may be able to
Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly Without
Probate Fees & With Minimum Estate Taxes
If you own a home ... or have assets worth at least $100,000
you owe it to yourself and your family -to get the
facts, on living trusts. If you think you're protected with a
simple will ... think again ... In many cases a Will guaran-
tees your estate will go through probate, which means your
family will not be able to take possession of your estate for
many months or even years!
Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insur-
ance and retirement plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2011, your
family may owe estate taxes which could amount to 41-55%
of the value of your estate.
This means that your family
may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!
A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize
estate taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if
you become incapacitated during your lifetime by avoiding
guardianship. This means your estate may be managed as
you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit. To
find out more about the benefits of living trust, attend one
of these free seminars ...

NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINA BEACH, FL
finds his sub-
'Uniquely American' Loston Harris to play Arts Centre
For the News-Leader
The Washington Post Sunday
Magazine paid tribute to Loston
Harris in a cover story "for his
blending of jazz riffs, gospel and
blues with his own unique style"
- a combination of which will be
on the playbill when Harris, still
in his 20s, performs at 7:30 p.m.
Monday in the next-to-last offer-
ing of the premier season of the
Amelia Arts Centre.
The center is located at First
Baptist Church, corner of Fifth
and Alachua streets.
In the stor\, the.magazine
dubbed Harris "the hip of subur-
ban cool," acknowledging that he
did not just adopt the music of
the '40s and '50s, but found his
own musical place in a constella-
tion of stars.
Harris, whose most recent
release was 'Timeless," studied
jazz with Dr. Ellis Marsalis,
"whose students," his agent says,
"have included Harry Connick,
Jr. and the entire Marsalis clan."
Throughout his high school
years, Harris played the drums,
but when Marsalis heard Harris
tickling the ivories of his office
piano, Marsalis, one of the great
pianists in the history of jazz,
taught Harris to use the piano so
he could capitalize on his talent
for the distinctive style of the
uniquely American music.
Harris eventually toured with
Wynton Marsalis, and went on a
dual-piano orchestra tour with
Marcus Roberts, which won a
Grammy nomination for Roberts

"I tried teaching special ed as

changed my major to art educa-

affinity for it At the same time, I
was still working as a drummer

"All forms of art are a means
of self-exploration and self-
expression, and I found the visual
arts an extension of my interest
in music. So I ended up going
back for my M.FA., with a con-
centration in photography."

SIN Continued from 1B
for purposes of economy, because
it's an effective artistic decision.
There are other vivid charac-
ters in the movie, which does not
have leads so much as actors who
dominate the foreground and
then move on. In a movie that
uses nudity as if the 1970s had
survived, Rosario Dawson's strip-
per is a fierce dominatrix, Carla
Gugino shows more skin than
she could in Maxim, and Devon
Aoki employs a flying guillotine
that was borrowed no doubt from
a circa-1970 Hong Kong exploiter.
Rodriguez co-directed, pho-
tographed and edited the movie,
collaborated on the music and
screenplay, and is co-producer.
Frank Miller and Quentin Taran-
tino are credited as co-directors,
Miller because his comic books
essentially act as storyboards,
which Rodriguez follows with
ferocity, Tarantino because he
directed one brief scene on a day
when Rodriquez was determined
to wean him away from celluloid
and lure him over to the dark side
of digital. (It's the scene in the car
with Clive Owen and Del Toro,
who has a pistol stuck in his
head.) Tarantino also contributed
something to the culture of the
film, which follows his influential
"Pulp Fiction" in its recycling of
pop archetypes and its circular
story structure. The language of
the film, both dialogue and narra-
tion, owes much to the hard-
boiled pulp novelists of the 1950s.
Which brings us, finally, to the
question of the movie's period.
Skylines suggest the movie is set
today. The cars range from the
late 1930s to the 1950s. The cos-
tumes are from the trench coat
and g-string era. I don't think "Sin
City" really has a period, because
it doesn't really tell a story set in
time and space. It's a visualization
of the pulp noir imagination,
uncompromising and extreme.
Yes, and brilliant.
