Nassau County taxpayers may
get a tax break "for a change."
Property taxes could decrease
a quarter of a mill for most resi-
dents and as much as 1.25 mills
for city and town residents, accord-
ing to preliminary budget recom-
mendations. '
Clerk of Court John Crawford

County Commission this week in
which they were optimistic about

design concepts for the city mari-,

After rejecting last month a

The commission.met Tuesday

in special session to hear marina
project updates from engineering
firm Passero & Associates.
Andrew, Holesko, program man-
ager with Passero, requested that
the commission provide design
ideas for four projects, a south

house buildings and boat ramp

those at Seaside and North Beach

Why didn't outside auditors dis-
cover more than $1 million stolen
from the Nassau County Clerk of
Court's Office over eight years?
That's one of several questions
lingering in the case of former
clerk employee Julie Mixon, who
confessed to the crime and com-
mitted suicide during a Florida
Department of Law Enforcement'
investigation earlier this year.
The theft resulted in "financial
irregularities" discovered by clerk's
office personnel in January.
But law enforcement records
obtained by the News-Leader show
that no one raised an alarm about
missing cash or lack of oversight in
the clerk's office for years not

Thursday he believes his firm had

to do in accordance with the rules
.and standards."
According to, FDLE records,
Farmand did not discover missing
cash or cite concerns about secu-
rity or procedures in the office.

office cash and deposits, samples
from each department were

never gets challenged, and he basi-
cally created the impact fee model

The heavy, humid days of
July and August can be tough
on our pets. Most people think
that animals can endure
extremes of temperature with-
out much of a problem. Not so.
Heatstroke is one of the most
common illnesses of pets in cli-
mates such as ours.
It's important to remember
that most breeds of dogs have
sweat glands only in the pads of
their feet They must pant to
cool off, and there is a limit to
their ability to thus lower their
body heat
I have seen bike riders run-
ning their dogs beside them on
a leash, with the poor dog panti-
ng furiously and trying to keep
up. This is no way to walk a
dog. The animal can easily over-
heat and incur a stroke or other
serious health problems.
And sadly, we still see dogs
left in cars in warm weather.
Even with the windows partly
opened, the temperature in a
.parked car in 75-degree temper-
atures can skyrocket to125
degrees in minutes, causing
misery and the strong possibili-
ty of heatstroke. Cats, too, are
susceptible to heatstroke when
left in a parked car.
. When a heatstroke is immi-
nent, the animal pants heavily,
trying to cool off. Then it
becomes lethargic, and will look
around for shade and water.
With no relief, he will begin to
stagger, salivate, and may even
have a seizure. Unless he gets

The average body tempera-
ture of a dog is higher than a
human's, and up to 101:5 is nor-
mal. But if it should go as high
as 104, it's important to get it
down right away.
When an animal exhibits
signs of heat stroke, emergency
treatment includes applying

cool compresses to the head
(especially the ears), pads of
the feet and the abdomen to
help mitigate damage. If the pet
is conscious you can offer small
amounts of cool water. Then get
the animal to a veterinary clinic.
If it is impossible to get the ani-
mal to a veterinarian immediate-
ly, give the pet a lukewarm
(never cold) bath, or wrap him
in lukewarm to slightly cool wet
Especially be alert to over-
heating conditions with breeds
that have long, thick coats, dark
coats, or pug faces.,
During hot weather, exercise
your pet in the early morning or
late evening; that's healthier
and more comfortable for you,
Make sure that your pet
always has plenty pf fresh water
available and a shady retreat
with good air circulation.

City urged to set standards

Fernandina Beach Commis-

subsidy without established afford-

Cory said, reading from the city's

"That doesn't tell us very much
about who the eligible people are
or how much the unit should cost,"
she said, noting that BRASH
already has a buyer for the Vernon
Street home and adding that the
commission should guarantee the
number of years that a house
remains affordable.
According to the Florida
Housing Coalition, the affordable
housing definition is based on the
"metropolitan statistical area" that
includes Duval and Nassau coun-
ties, said Cory who also served
on the city's affordable housing
task force. It also factors in the
median household income.
"The reason for that is there
are grants out there. There is
money out there to help build
affordable housing," she said. "But
our definition and our legislation
has to be carefully worded so that
we don't eliminate any of this pos-
sible funding."
A definition of affordable hous-
ing "has not been forthcoming"
from the city, after repeated
requests, Cory said.
"If there's not a deadline, or
any urgency to it, somehow it
never gets done."

But deed restrictions limiting
sale price would prove problem-
atic, Braga said, adding,
"Ultimately that's a decision that
the market" will make.
The resolution authorizes the
use of the adopted lien "method-
ology for other organizations
which promote affordable hous-
ing in the community."
But commissioners requested
that city staff bring affordable
housing standards back to the
commission by November.
Mearns called the request
"totally doable." But approving fee
waivers for BRASH's Vernon

he said, after Commissioner John

However, for residents in unin-
corporated areas of the county this
would be offset by a corresponding
1-mill increase in the municipal
service fund, decreasing their total
ad valerem tax bill by 0.25 mill.
That would lower the unincor-
porated mill rate from 8.5 to 8,.25

ings of about $50 a year on a house
with a taxable value of $200,000.
The same homeowner in an

Fernandina Beach, Callahan or
Hilliard would see greater
savings. Their mill rate would
decrease from 7.68 to 6.43

Selby said he has not calculated
what the county's rollback rate
would be to achieve the equivalent
amount of last year's ad valorem
revenue, but said it would be more
than this proposed decrease. The
rollback is how much-the county
could decrease the mill rate and
still meet the previous year's rev-
enue due to an increase in taxable
property values.

Tips for dealing with hurricanes

The Florida Municipal Electric

The list outlines important safety
tips that Floridians can follow
before, during and after a hurri-

commonly overlooked.They are:
Following a power outage,
unplug all of your large appliances
and electronics to prevent power
surges when electricity is restored,
which can often damage equipment
and create fire hazards.
Remember the "three don't"
when using generators: don't run a
generator in the house; don't run a
generator in the garage; and, don't
plug the generator directly into
your home's main electrical sys-
tem. The first two can lead to
asphyxiation and the third can send

home they share with Houston
and the driver.
Witnesses told police the sus-

pect, a juvenile whose name has
not been released, stabbed
Houston about an hour later at
the home.
The same deputy responded
to the stabbing, meeting Houston
at the home of a relative, where he
had gone to call for help.
Houston told police he and the
suspect began fighting and the
suspect stabbed him several times
with what one witness said was a
pocketknife, then ran into a near-
by wooded area.
Three witnesses told police
they saw the suspect stab
Houston, according to the report.
Police found "a large amount of
blood" near the front door of the
home and inside the living room
but did not locate the knife.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said
a warrant has been issued for the
arrest of the suspect on a charge
of aggravated battery with a dead-
ly weapon. He would not release
the name of the suspect.
No arrests had been made in
the case Thursday afternoon.

Campers conquer computers

West Nassau Correspondent
From Tuesday through Friday
last week around 20 "summer
campers" ages 10 to 18 took advan-
tage of the 4-H Summer Day Camp
to learn all about technology, pri-
marily computer technology, and
had a great time doing it, said 4-H
program assistant Amanda Thien.,
Thien, said parents reported that
their youngsters were really excit-
ed once they discovered several;
hundred e-mail and web site
addresses on items around their
homes. They wrote down all the
addresses and their "homework"
assignment was to check how
many of them had been updated
or were not working.

Most of the kids had already
learned the basics about computers
in school. But this gave them the
opportunity to go beyond that and
learn other ways to expand their
skills and enjoy their personal com-
puters at home.
On Tuesday, computer-savvy
master gardener Kathy Warner,
who maintains the .extension
office's web site, showed the
campers how to use Front Page for
web design.
Making it a really full day, they
also learned how to make their own
invitations, greeting cards, thank
you notes and designed personal
logos to use on T-shirts using the
Microsoft Word program. They
also discussed how to use the
Microsoft Power Point program in

On Thursday, another comput-

was on hand to teach them about

Reply to the Goldfish
Well, Coleman, you've done it again, once again
you've proven liberals are just soo-o- much smarter
than the rest of us, specifically the millions of us
who voted for Reagan in two landslide elections
("Americans have terrible sense of history," July 8).
I agree that most Americans don't know history,
for instance your adoration of JFK. If President
Kennedy hadn't backed out and refused to support
our allies during the Bay of Pigs invasion, there
would have been no Russian missiles in Cuba to
have a crisis over! His "staring down of Khrushchev"
was a mess of his own making. The Russians were
'in Cuba because he didn't take out Castro when he
could have.
But when you die a martyr's death and have
movie star good looks, I guess history forgives the
mediocre and bad things you did (Che Guevara,
Reagan was the first president whose goal was vic-
tory hot detentee." Reagan said, ."D6tente is some-
thing a farmer has with his turkey until
Thanksgiving." You were right about us outdoing the
Russians with spending and technology, but which
president was responsible for the 500-ship navy, the
MXmissile and, dare I say it, "Star Wars" (the one
thing Russians really couldn't match).
It sure wasn't that embarrassment Jimmy Carter!
When Carter left office communism was on the rise'
with takeovers in Afghanistan, Nicaragua, almost
the whole of Southeast Asia, Angola and threatening
many other places. Reagan openly challenged the
Soviets in their own sphere. Would the Solidarity
movement in Poland have stood a chance with Carter
in office? I think not! Reagan's seven predecessors
accomplished nothing more than a controlled retreat
and a go-along policy with the Soviets. Look at a
map if you doubt it. Under Reagan communism lost
ground for the first time in 50 years. Reagan won the
cold war.
Honest Abe faced a mighty struggle, but the
Confederates only wanted their own country, not
ours. The stated goal of communism was to dominate
the entire world. Who faced the, bigger danger?
Reagan wins hands down!

Theftin the clerk's office
In your (July 8) article regarding the embezzle-
ment of county funds by the late Jessica Mixon,
Clerk of the Court John Crawford says the account-
ing firm of Farmand, Farmand & Farmand is still
being used by the county and it is up to the county
commissioners to change that I encourage the com-
missioners to fire this firm immediately.
It is obvious to me that an accounting firm that
cannot match county revenue with a corresponding
bank deposit is either totally inept or corrupt. This
raises a couple of questions with me. Is Farmand,
Farmand & Farmand's inept auditing procedures
and failure to find stolen funds leading to the finan-
cial woes of Nassau County? What other county
offices does this accounting firm audit? Could there,
"'be other offices with' iisshig funds? isthisrt,-ly Tax I

restroom in her office? Where does the money go
when the taxpayers of Nassau County send their
checks to her office?
The residents of Nassau County are now faced
with paying a 5-cent-per-gallon gas tax, recently
passed by our county commissioners because the
county has no money for infrastructure improve-
ments. How will the taxpayers of Nassau County
know if the 5-cent per gallon gas tax (or the "user's
fee" as Ansley Acree likes to call it) is really going to
pay for infrastructure improvements?
We will never be able to trust the accounting firm
of Farmand, Farmand & Farmand ever again. I
encourage the county to recoup the nearly $1 million
embezzled by the late Ms. Mixon by any means nec-
essary. Her estate should pay and Farmand, Farmand

Tell us what you really think
On June 22, John Crawford wrote an article enti-
fled "What if Wyatt was one of us?" In that article Mr.
Crawford blatantly and boldly indicated that he
believed drugs were the cause of Wyatt's break-
down in June.
Well, in light of FSU's release that says Wyatt is suf-
fering from advanced Lyme disease I fully expect a
retraction article from Mr. Crawford.
I'm extremely pleased to see that Mr. Crawford has
egg completely all over his pathetic face. Next time
maybe John will use that thing called a brain before
jumping to unfounded conclusions. Brains come in
handy like that Apparently Mr. Crawford is in need
of one.
Nice to see performance is duly rewarded when
talent-less hack John L. (I'm assuming there's an
important reason I must type the "L") Crawford's
hatchet job on Wyatt Sexton is quickly discredited.
Congratulations, John! You (and we) now under-
stand why the pinnacle of your career finds you in that
mobile home you surely inhabit somewhere in the
swamps of Yulee. At least the mystery of where all
those punks who wrote for the high-school newspa-
per end up is solved.

it been even remotely one of the following:

you through your mommy and daddy, who'll surely
squirm with delight that someone actually read their
baby's tripe.
Your lame "pre-emptive apology" is insufficient
You owe Wyatt and his family a retraction of your slan-
derous accusations. Taking unsubstantiated shots at
a 20-year old must make you proud.

A s I was channel surfing, waiting for the
latest band of rain from Hurricane
Dennis to pass and trying to summon
energy for anything on such a dreary
day, I came across Geraldo Rivera in Pensacola, of
all places.
There he was, decked out in yellow rain pants,
blowing in the wind, mike in hand, hugging a palm
tree at the beach.
Not a pretty sight, and depressing, too, as
Dennis was turned into fodder

NEWSROOM network.
VIEWS How did any of this strate-
gic planning inform the view-
ers or, God forbid, those about to get slammed?
Let's see. Anderson Cooper reported that it was
really, really windy. We watched as he screamed
into the driving rain for his colleagues to "GET
OUT OF THE WAY!" as a largish piece of metal
roof went whizzing by.
Then the ubiquitous disclaimer: "Don't try this
at home."
We watched as various talking heads pointed to
the sky, the waves, bowing trees, cars driving
through puddles, even their own feet in ankle-deep
running water.
The day after, NBC's Campbell Brown showed
us where a parking lot disappeared somewhere
near Navarre Beach. It must have been at least 85
degrees, but there she was in a heavy rain slicker,
hat firmly on head, assessing the damage and
probably sweating buckets. Her colleague Al
Roker, always enterprising, found a TV satellite van
overturned on the beach to launch his broadcast.
"As far as we know everyone got out OK," he said.
Now there was some intrepid reporting.
Roker was back on the set of the Today Show in
New York on Tuesday morning, earning kudos
from Katie Couric after what she called his ardu-
ous weekend. Oh yeah, it must have been hell.
Thank goodness he's OK.-
Never mind the thousands who remain without
power, and probably will for weeks. Never mind
the lives and property lost, the trees gone, the
beaches eroded and entire communities left to pick
up as yet another storm menaces to the south.
Those stories, the not-so-glamorous aftermath,
will be left for the local newspapers to cover, by
reporters who, like their subjects, haven't had air
conditioning, a shower or a hot meal for days.
When the Riveras, the Rokers, the Coopers, the
Browns and the other TV celebrities have all
returned home, it will be left to the community
newspapers to sort out the mess, tell people where
they can seek shelter, food and water, what the
local government is doing and advocate for some
kind of outside response if necessary. They'll.tell
the stories, and not just the great big exciting ones,
of the community.
It's. not glamorous, not well paid and often not
well understood. But hopefully it is well informed
and a service, even when the excitement has died
down and it's back to covering board meetings,
high school sports, crime and other events impor-
tant to a small community.
Which is more than I can say these days for TV
news turned entertainment.
It brings to mind a conversation with a friend
whose brother lives near Palm Beach.
He manages a marina and as Hurricane Frances
approached last August, about to make a direct hit,
a newspaper in Los Angeles, of all places, contact-
ed him. How was he holding up? What was the
mood among area residents?
"Well," he said, looking around, "Jim Cantori is
in my.back yard, so it can't be good."
Amen to that. It's going to be a long season...

To the Editor:
From the tone of your column ("Just wastin' away
in Fernandinaville," July 1) I get the distinct impres-
sion that you are not in favor of the CRA, that you
don't think it will improve the waterfront and that in
30 years we'll look at lot like Key West This is also
not the first derogatory column or editorial that you
have written about the CRA. In fact, I don't recall
anything that you've written about what should be
done to improve the waterfront or any other method
of financing the improvements of the infrastructure.
The Florida CRA legislation was originally passed
in 1969 and then the act was amended in 1977 to
allow for tax incremental financing. By now there are
probably close to 180 CRAs in the state. In Broward
County alone, 11 municipalities have CRAs and three
cities Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood and Pompano
Beach each have two CRAs. So you can see that
the CRA was not the brainchild (as you profess) of
the city manager. In fact, with so much success in
other cities, the idea was put forth by the city plan-
ning staff and Bob Mearns, being the city manager,
presented it to the city commission.
I will agree with you that the CRA was not suffi-
ciently explained to the residents and questions may
not have adequately been answered about the why
and wherefores of the CRA.
A CRA can only be formed in a "blighted" area.
What this means is that there is a lack of infrastruc-
ture and possibly antiquated zoning that is restrictive
for families to build new homes and/or for business-
es to thrive. The "blight" has nothing to do with the
income or the social status of the residents of the

maximum density of 1 home per 5 acres. As every-
one knows, the owners of Crane Island have been
attempting for more than 15 years'to develop the
land at a much higher density.
The owners have sought extraordinary means to
accomplish their objective, including threatening
the city to stop allowing our children the use of the .
soccer fields by the airport. Their latest effort
involves an agreement with the Amelia Island
Plantation to transfer density rights from the
Plantation to Crane Island. Based on documentation
we have been given, Concerned Friends of
Fernandina challenges the legality of these develop-
ment rights that the Amelia Island Plantation wants
to transfer.
For a number of years now Long Point has been.
completely developed, with all excess property now
privately owned. To our knowledge the only proper-
ty that the Plantation still owns at Long Point is the
123 acres that are occupied by the golf course and
clubhouse, and the 68 acres of marshland that lies
along the Amelia River. Of course the Amelia Island
Plantation is saying they own the development
rights for 800 units based upon the above acreage.
Our contention is that if there is no developable
land, there are no development rights that can be
transferred. The Plantation made a deliberate deci-
sion to build the Long Point golf course instead of
In 1985 when the Long Point Development of
Regional Interest went through the approval
process, there was an issue over the reason the
developers wanted credit for 800 developable units

For a proud father, wedding day

Last weekend was a major one
in our family; I was asked by
my only daughter, Erin, to
give her hand in marriage.
The relationship between a father and
a daughter is extremely special, and
when there is only one daughter it
becomes even more so.
Since she and her fiance live in
Jacksonville, my wife and I have had
the opportunity to get to know him
over the past year. Each time we would
come away from our "meetings" we
would share our thoughts and obser-
vations with each other. I would say
things like, "He seems like a really
nice young man. He's a hard worker,
has a good job and he just completed
his MBA degree. He looks like a good
choice." My wife, the psychologist,
had other views like, "He is very
respectful toward her, treats her well
and really seems to adore her." My
response, "Ummm, right, I noticed
that too."
The fact is I probably hadn't.,
ties. Men (such as "Dads") tend to be
more pragmatic: Does the young man
have a job? Does it have a future? Does
he have his own transportation? Does
he have any tattoos or body piercings
(even if not visible)? Does he have an
arrest record? Does he belong to any
subversive groups? Does he use any
illegal substances? Is he a Republican?
(OK, that last one is one I use.)
Women, on the other hand, are
more subtle and are interested in
those areas that are much more diffi-
cult (if not impossible) to quantify and
verify: How does he treat his mother
(a sure indicator as to how he will treat
his new wife)? Is he sensitive to your
daughter's needs? Does he respect
her? Is he truly interested in her as a
person? Will he make a good father?,
Does he love her?
Yeah, right! What crystal ball is
going to give you answers to questions
like these? (You see, men don't like
dealing with esoteric open-ended ques-
tions that don't have clear concise

-. answers. Women
seem to revel in
-. :' The brutal
truth is that most
life-changing deci-
sions or choices
never come with a
guarantee of infal-
libility. My own
life certainly
AMike Boyle bears that out. As
my grandmother
... used to say, "You
WAIT A pays your money,
MINUTE and you takes
your chances."
Such a philosophy was riot much com-
fort as I contemplated walking my
daughter down the aisle on her big
But there was another factor in this
entire equation that deserved to be
considered, and that was Erin herself.
She had graduated with honors in
international studies, and had i. -
. achieved similar honors when.she put -,
herself through a master's program in
education. She is a highly respected
middle school math teacher at a pri-
vate parochial school in Ponte Vedra,
and being in her early 30s she has a
maturity that serves her well in mak-
ing major decisions.
As parents we want to eliminate all
of the risks that face our children.
Impossible as that task is, we still try
by offering "guidance" and "assisting
with decisions." Maybe, just maybe,
the time had finally come to step back
and take hope in the many years of
preparation that had brought all of us
to this pivotal moment
As difficult as it was to relinquish
control over my daughter, it was one of
the wisest and best decisions I ever
made. First of all, any "control" I
thought I had existed only in my mind,
not in reality. What I had deluded
myself into believing were genuine
requests for direction or decision-mak-
ing were really just examples of
respect for her father. Like generations

before her, when she came to me ask-
ing for advice she already knew what
she was going to do. Running it past,
"Dad" was just a formality.
My initial disappointment at this
realization was quickly replaced with a
growing confidence and comfort that
Erin was going to be "all right" I have
always believed that one of the,major
goals for parents is to see that their
children (when they become adults)
are prepared to be independent and
self-sufficient Every parent wants to
know that if life isn't always smooth,
their kids will have the internal
resources with which to cope. Both of
my children have been dealt some
pretty tough cards in their young lives,
and they have performed with grace,
dignity and true class. No whining or

wallowing in self-pity for them. As my
wife likes to say, "Adversity doesn't
build character, it reveals it."
So when it came time to take "that
walk" down the aisle last Saturday, I
asked my daughter if she was ready,
and when she looked me in the eye
and said, "Yes," I knew she was. I also
knew that since she was a strong
Christian I wasn't the only Father she
could count on in times of need. That
is a comfort level i could never pro-

riage will never change that

on acreage that,could not be developed. Of course,
in 1985 density wasn't an issue like it is today and
the county gave the developers what they asked for.
Years later we see that it appears the developers
were stockpiling their development/density rights
for future use. Rather than seeing the county set
precedent, CFOF would like to see a legal ruling on
this situation. Can developers legally transfer devel-
opment rights based upon golf course and marsh-
land acreage, or is it a case that if you can't use
them you lose them?
The analogy I would give you is this: As a city
resident, I am permitted to build a house up to 35.
feet high. IfI only build a single-story house with a
height of 18 feet, do I have the right to give some-
one living elsewhere on the island the 17 feet of
height I didn't use so they could build their house
up to 52 feet high? Of course not; but that is exactly
what the Plantation and the Crane Island owners are
attempting to do.
Certainly Long Point is not Crane Island, so
CFOF also contends that transferring the buildable
rights on Long Point's Coastal High Hazard area is
quite different from the Coastal High Hazard area of
Crane Island. Crane Island is a completely different
geographical situation- its access is quite different
and its impact on road capacity is very different. We
would like for these differences to be analyzed by
someone other than the developer.
CFOF also believes that there is a significant
problem with the planning, or lack thereof, for evac-
No one seems to be taking the evacuation prob-
lem seriously. It surprises us that watching the tele-
vision coverage regarding the damage that
Hurricane Dennis has wreaked upon Pensacola, as
well as our personal experiences in previous years
when evacuation was suggested/mandated, doesn't
make local officials realize that hurricane evacua-

tion is a significant problem for Nassau County.
We certainly need our local officials to deal with
.these problems realistically so the citizenry of this
county will not be endangered in the future. A coun-
ty commissioner raised the evacuation issue in
regard to-a request to change commercial property
for a Chester Road/AlA development to residential
- why don't they apply the same reasoning to
Crane Island?
Getting potential Crane Island residents on and
off Amelia Parkway in an emergency evacuation sit-
uation is going to be quite different from evacuating
residents from the south end of the island. The
potential bottleneck on Amelia Parkway will be very
dangerous. Amelia Island Co. President Jack Healan
said at a June 6 Joint Local Planning Agency meet-
ing that a traffic study had been done. Was this traf-
fic study done for the conditions at Long Point or
the conditions that the Crane Island development
will be affecting?
CFOF also questions the land.area stated by the
owners of Crane Island. In their permit application
in 1988, the owners were requesting permission to
build 99 homes and a 90-slip marina on their 76
acres of land. Later that year, they modified their
permit to claim the land encompassed 110 acres -
the original 76 acres and 34 acres of
wetlands/marsh. Now they claim they have 207
acres to compute their density level. Can you now
use wetlands in determining buildable acres?
CFOF encourages both county and city officials
to research all of the assertions that the developer's
request for a memorandum of understanding is
being made upon. The developer wants to increase
the buildable density rights from 42 houses to 169
houses. We feel that incomplete information is mak-
ing the developer's request for a density of 169
houses with a marina for 90 boat slips look one way,
when in fact the reality will be very different.

The strength of the cross in the storms of culture

His unexpected need to
rush home early was a
reminder to all of us
that it was once again
hurricane season. My dear
friend, a pastor in Mobile, Ala.,
packed his car three days before
Hurricane Dennis surged upon
his beloved Gulf Coast and head-
ed home to secure the church he
serves and touch base with those
shut-ins who lived without the
safety net of close families or
friends. His devotion to duty
reminded me of the cost of fol-
lowing the one who carried a
cross and issued the charge to all
who would come after him to pick
up their own cross. .
There is power in the cross of

'- which we
rarely speak.
S~ .I heardan
S ha intriguing -e
t story of a
P cross that
was carried
out of a Fort
Beach con-
Conrad dominium
Sharps during the
Stidal surge of
PULPIT Ivan that
NOT77ES recently
washed back
ashore almost a year later when
tropical depression Arlene made
its way over the panhandle of

Florida. Of course it is not the
cross coming back to the shore
that is miraculous but the faith it
can-inspire in disciples of Christ
Let me iry to explaiinuising
Paul's words to the church in
ancient Corinth. "For Christ did
not send me to baptize, but to
preach the gospel not with
words of human wisdom, lest the
cross of Christ be emptied of its
power For the message of the cross
is foolishness to those who are per-
ishing, but to us who are being
saved, it is the power of God... For
the foolishness of God is wiser than
man's wisdom, and the weakness
of God is stronger than man's
(1 Corinthians 1:17-18, 25)

Where is the wisdom in all of
this? Simply this there are
many storms whose violent and
destructive waves assail our cul-
ture and-miriiy people-who fear
that the message and the power
of the cross has been washed
away, lost to the depths. But this
is not true.
Even if all be lost, the cross
shall stand. No terrorist bomb-
ing, no amount of hatred or
hunger or disease in our world,,
no threat to the stability of our
families, through pornography or
immorality can sweep away the
power of the cross.
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ
stands once and forever as both
the foolishness and weakness of

God, "who so loved the world that
he gave his only Son." I ask you:
what amount of our prideful wis-
dom, what amount of our power
bent on domination and destruc-
tioi6han hold back the storms we
have created?
None. Our only hope is in the
cross. The cross that we must lift
from the storm surge and carry
to the front of the storm, the very
place of landfall where the winds
and the rain threaten our destruc-
tion as a people. Yes, it is consid-
ered foolish in our current cultur-
al atmosphere to say (and to
seek) what is right, what is true,
what is good it's like holding a
metal cross high in the midst of a
lightening storm. Many who pick

up their own cross will fall in
what the world must call foolish-
ness. But what is foolish to the
world God has called wise.
This is the power of the cross!
I can't and wouldn't dare to tell
yo'u what direction God is calling
you to travel with your cross -
but this I know: he is calling you
and there may well be rough
weather ahead.
Fear not however, when you
are foolish enough to hold the
cross high and head toward the
black skies of the storms of cul-
ture, a wisdom and strength
which is eternal goes with you.
The Rev. Conrad C. Sharps is
pastor of First Presbyterian Church
in Fernandina Beach.

FRIDAY, JULY 15,2005/News-Leader


Plan your garden with pooch in mind

P people love their dogs, but
they also love their gar-
dens, and sometimes it
can be hard to reconcile
the two. With some thought and
work, gardeners and their dogs
can both enjoy beautiful gardens.
For the past nine years, Fran
Kiesling, owner of Dirty Dog
Landscape Consulting & Design
Services in Minneapolis, has spe-
cialized in dog landscaping, or
dogscaping, to help dog owners
and their pets have fun in the gar-
den together. A good design
solves the natural conflicts.
"Figure out how people are
using the space, then figure out
how dogs are using it some-
times they.

Just because a dog is outside
doesn't mean it is free to run
wild, Kiesling says. There should
be rules for a dog's behavior in
the garden just as there are rules
in the house and when going for
walks. '
Kiesling advises her clients to
plant relaxed landscapes that can
absorb the wear and tear of the
daily routines of their furry
friends. She avoids delicate
plants, spindly trees and fish-
ponds, which dogs find irre-
sistible. She likes to use rocks to
help establish clear dog bound-
aries, and she relies on durable
wood chips for paths.
Dogs can be hard on grass,
and Kiesling tries to keep lawns
small. Dogs and their owners
both like patios and decks, so she
often incorporates them into her
designs. When a client asks for a
Splashing fountain, she. suggests
"a naturalistic pile of rocks wjih a
recirculating pump, not some-
thing delicate that a thirsty dog

Beautiful gardens and well-behaved dogs can be happy together: Gwen the Shetland sheepdog
shows just how it's done.

Doggone right
Here are some comments and observations about dogs. dog
owners and gardens from Fran Kiesling, a landscape designer who
specializes in dog-friendly gardens:
Take care: "With dogs, you have repair and maintenance
chores that the guy next door doesn't have."
In a hole: Train your dog not to dig. or to dig only in a specific
place. If you have several dogs, digging is a more complicated
social behavior. "If you have dog toys or allow food in the garden.
then you will have digging because somebody starts hoarding."
The call of nature: 'There is no plant that can be peed on with
any kind of frequency or regularity and live. Get the dog to urinate
and defecate on a surface that is not plants." Pick up the poop
every day.
Plant smart: Dogs can't see slender plants very well, so plant
them in clusters. Landscape on berms or in raised beds, so it's eas-
ier for the dog to see what's what.
Choose durable plants: Azaleas and hydrangeas are sturdy
enough for dogs to run through without doing much damage. Smith
grows lavender in her garden; her miniature mixed-poodle dashes
through and comes out smelling sweet.
Flower power: Fill flowerbeds up: your dog sees bare spots as
an invitation to step in and explore.

could easily knock over.
Kiesling's philosophy of
dogscaping is similar to modern;
zoo landscaping. The tigers live
in an environment, not a pen. The
elephants and tortoises have
habitats of their own.
When you have a dog, the gar-
den's design should take your
pooch's needs and lifestyle into
consideration. Dogs love path-
ways and little destinations.
"You need to have exciting
things to do on a circuit for-'you-,
dug." she sa\s. Dogs. like pljces-
to play and to rest, they like to be
able to see out into the neighbor-

hood, and they enjoy water.
; Sally Benson, editor of
American Nurseryman magazine,
first observed the potential for
smart dog landscaping in the
mid-1990s. Gardeners were inter-
ested in wildlife habitats, but
Benson realized an awful'lot of
people's back yards had to meet
the needs-of domestic animals.
"Who uses the back yard
more than the dog?" she says.
Her Siberian husky, Dakota Star,
wa\vshe-chief designer of her gar
den: "I let he Like the lead and
lay the paths for me."
There's no universal style of

dog landscaping. You have to
take your dog's breed, gender,
age and personality into consider-
ation. Boxers are clownish and
joyful, Kiesling says. Basset
hounds are "like torpedoes" that
can destroy perennial flowers
with their big feet. Border collies
are lhigh-strung and need careful
supervision; mastiffs are guard
dogs, always on patrol.
If you have more than one
dog, landscaping should also take
into account what Kiesling calls
"the configuration of the dog
members of the family how
many there are, what kind of play
group they form."
Many dog owners are con-
cerned about poisonous plants.,
Japanese yews are among the
most popular landscaping plants,
and they're also among the most,
toxic. They are not recommend-
ed in dog-friendly gardens.
Kiesling doesn't use them at all,
but she also says it'! important to
train your dog not to eat any
plants, ever.
For a harmonious relation-
ship, keep the scale of your plant-
ings in scale with your dog.
"Little dogs enjoy little plants,"
says Kiesling. She might have a
flowerbed full of daylilies in a gar-
den with Chihuahuas or

Americans use an average of

water each day; much of that
water is wasted due to careless-
The International Arid Land
Consortium offers these outdoor
water saving tips to help save a
vital natural resource:
Water your lawn early in the
morning or at night to avoid
excess evaporation. Do not water
your lawn on windy days to avoid
excess evaporation.
Water only when the grass
or plants show signs of needing
it. Overwatering promotes shal-
low root growth, making your
lawn less hardy. To determine if
your lawn needs to be watered,
simply walk across the grass. If
you leave footprints, it's time to

minimize water loss due to evap-
oration. Also install a more effi-
cient water saving filter.
Use a broom rather than a
hose to clean sidewalks or drive-
Install efficient irrigation
devices; ones that can be adjust-
ed according to seasonal irriga-
tion needs.
Install moisture sensors in
each irrigation zone (sunny,
shady, etc.) to better determine
irrigation needs.
Maintain a lawn height of 2
1/2 to 3 inches to protect the
roots from heat stress and
reduce the loss of moisture to
Watering in several short
sessions rather than one long

absorb water.
Avoid sprinklers that spray

Wash your car with a buck-

between rinsing.
Consider washing your car
on the lawn to reduce runoff.

eration how the yard will be used
and how it can provide the great-
est benefit with the least amount
of maintenance.

Real estate rules

for hurricane season

For the News-Leader

W ith the destruction
and drama of last
year's hurricanes
still fresh in the
minds of most Floridians,
recent predictions of another
hyper-active storm season in
2005 are almost too much to
bear for many of us.
The forecast from the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) for the 2005 Atlantic
hurricane season predicts 12 to
15 tropical storms, with seven
to nine becoming hurricanes, of
which three to five could
become major hurricanes.
Residing in a vulnerable
region such as Florida means
that most of us have been
preparing for big storms for
generations stocking water,
batteries and canned foods at
the very sign of a tropical
But hurricane season takes
on a whole new meaning for
those in the real estate market -
either as home buyers or sell-
For buyers, the devastating
potential of hurricanes reminds
us to look beyond the aesthetics
of a new home, and to thor-
oughly investigate a structure's
safety and stability in the event
of a major storm.
For sellers, recent storms
force us to make decisions
about what should be disclosed
to potential buyers about hurri-
cane-related damage and
repairs that may have occurred
as recently as last fall.
If you are unlucky enough to
be under contract when a hurri-
cane strikes, ask your real
estate attorney to check the
purchase document for disaster-
related repair contingencies
that might affect the home's
purchase. As a buyer or seller,
its important to have an attor-
ney read over any contract
before signing to ensure that
this type of language is included
in the agreement
Depending on when the
_storm strikes in your escrow
process, be prepared for re-
inspections and repairs follow-
ing a major storm, which can
affect everything from your
closing date to the final price of
the home.
Use the following guidelines
as you buy or sell Florida prop-
erty this summer:

If you're buying:
The quality of a home's con-
struction, of course, is the most
important indicator of its ability
to withstand hurricane-force
winds. A solidly built concrete
block home with a new roof,
impact-resistant windows and
hurricane shutters offers the
most protection.
Also consider:
The home's proximity to
the coast, which can mean
increased vulnerability to a hur-
ricane's storm surge. Property
located on the beach also has a
much higher risk of wind dam-
age. If you must buy near the
beach, be sure the home's con-
struction is solid and complies
with all current building codes
for hurricane safety.
The area's drainage and
elevation, since homes built on
a low-lying lot or on land with
poor drainage are more likely to
suffer potential flood damage.
Ask your Realtor to check if the
area you are considering has
ever flooded, and be on the
lookout for remnants of previ-
ous flood damage in the home
The condition of the
home's yard, as healthy, well-
maintained trees and bushy
shrubs can act as a buffer

against high winds while over-
grown or unhealthy trees can
topple onto roofs or become
projectiles during a hurricane.
If you are considering a home
that needs extensive yard work,
make it a priority if you are
moving in during hurricane sea-
The security of pool cages
and screen enclosures, which
can crumple and fly into homes
around them during high
winds. When considering a
home with any of these kinds of
structures, be sure to replace or
reinforce them.
Although it may cost a bit
more, many buyers bring in
their own registered home
inspector to examine safety-
related issues. A shortage of
reputable and experienced
repairmen forced many home-
owners to contract with tran-
sient or inexperienced workers
who may have done shoddy

If you're selling:
Seller disclosure standards
in Florida cover obvious
defects, which are visible to the
buyer; and material defects,
which are not readily visible,
such as an issue with the roof or
a hidden crack in the founda-
If you have any questions
about what should and should-
n'tbe disclosed, ask your real
estate attorney for some guide-
lines. A good rule of th u mb is to
disclose any damage or defects
that you would want to know
about when buying your next
Sellers should be willing to,,
volunteer hurricane-related
problems such as:
Malfunctions in the major sys-
tems of the home that may have
been caused by last year's
storms, including the founda-
tion, plumbing, electrical sys-
tem, heating and air condition-
ing, siding, windows, doors,
walls and ceilings
Any additional damage to
property due to the storm and
subsequent flooding
Environmental hazards
such as mold, which can
become a problem if a hme
becomes flooded in the after-
math of a hurricane.
Work completed without
building permits, such as car-
pentry or plumbing jobs
required following a major
As a seller, you are only
required to disclose a home's
defects, not to necessarily fix
them. As long as you are honest
and up-front with the new
owner, you are not liable if the
buyer decides against fixing
damages in the future.
If, however, an undisclosed
defect is discovered later, the
seller could be sued for misrep-
resenting the condition of the
home. A defect can also become
a negotiating point for the final
home price, with the cost of
repairs or replacement factored
into the agreed-upon asking
As last year's storms punctu-
ated, all of Florida is vulnerable
to storms and hurricanes both
on and off the coast Whether
you are buying or selling your
home, be prepared when the
weather forecaster points to the
next tropical depression.

danger in

the water
Just a few weeks ago, I
published an article about
the dangers of sharks. We all
have this deep-seeded fear of
sharks and think about them
often when we are at the
beach. Shark attacks are so
rare that constant fears are
not really justified. There is
another danger lurking in the
waters, but we commonly
don't pay any attention to its
presence. However, an attack
could happen at any minute.
Last weekend my daugh-
ter, Peyton, was swimming in
the ocean with me at her
side, when she suddenly said
that she felt like she had
been bitten or stung by
something. We got out and
examined the area, but there
were not any marks on her
skin. She did feel like she
was getting burned about the
area of her leg, and so we
poured some water across
the area and then she put
some ice on it After about 20
minutes, her pain subsided
and she was right back in the
We thought that maybe
she had been stung by a jelly-
fish, but given how quickly
she got over it, we didn't feel
like this was actually what
happened. It was not until the
next morning when she got.
out of bed, and we saw the
raised red bumps in a
straight line across her thigh
did we know for sure that
indeed she had been another
victim of a "jellyfish attack."
Jellyfish are found all over
the world and release a
venom when their tentacles
come in contact with skin,
which we call a "sting." Even
a jellyfish lying on the shore
can sting you if touched in
theareayqpfthe tentc,
Raised, red welts develop
along the site of the sting,
often in a whip-like fashion,
and may last for 1-2 weeks.
An itchy skin rash referred to
as "seabather's eruption"
may then appear and then
last for up to a few weeks
after the sting. While the
sting of a jellyfish or
Portuguese man-of-war can
cause severe illness and
extreme pain, documented
deaths are rare and often
result from a severe allergic
reaction. The most ven-
omous jellyfish in the world
is known simply as the Box
jellyfish and is found in the
Indian Ocean and South
Pacific. It can cause a fatal
reaction and it is the only jel-
lyfish for which a specific
antidote antiveninn) exists.
According to Lt. Thomas
Wright of the Jacksonville
Beach Ocean Rescue, the
cabbage head jellyfish is
most common to our beaches
here on the First Coast You
may have often seen these
washed up on the beach. In
addition to the cabbage head,
there are other species of jel-
lyfish in our waters, including
the infamous man o'war. The
Portuguese man-of-war is
most common in the tropical
and subtropical regions of
the Pacific and Indian oceans
and in the Gulf Stream of the
North Atlantic Ocean. If the
presence of Portuguese man-
of-war has been noted in the
area, lifeguards will signal
this with purple flags, the
color chosen because of the
similar color to the man-of-
war. The stings of this jelly-
fish are similar to other jelly-
fish stings, but much more
intense and painful.
If you have been stung,
thoroughly wash the area
without rubbing it. Washing
with seawater is preferable to
fresh water. Ice may be used
to help control the pain.
Further treatment for stings
uses a 50/50 mixture of vine-
gar or ammonia and water to
neutralize the toxin. Urine is
commonly discussed as an

irrigant and does work, but I
think I would stick with the
sea water to wash it off.
Another common remedy is
a combination of water and
meat tenderizer, or water and
baking soda. This can be
mixed into a paste that can
be spread on the affected
area until the pain subsides.

River Raft Race

is canceled
The third annual Lands End Deli Amelia River
I Raft Race, which was slated for Saturday, has been
canceled due to lack of participation, according to
organizer Karl Weilbacher.
Weilbacher said Wednesday he was canceling
the event because there were just nine entrants
for the race. Last year's race drew four less rafts
than the year before, and Weilbacher said, it looked
as if the 2005 event would have even less partici-
pation. He said plans for future races are now up in
the air.
Proceeds from Saturday's race were to benefit
the Nassau County Special Olympics.

Take hunter

safety course

this summer

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is encouraging would-be hunters to
sign up and take its mandatory hunter safety course
this summer and not wait until the fall. This time of
year provides the best opportunity to get into a
class as slots are more readily available.
The FWC hunter safety course, or similar
approved course by another state, province or
organization, is a requirement to obtaining a Florida
hunting license for anyone born on or after June 1,
1975. Even though the course is not required for
persons born before that date, it is recommended,
especially for beginning hunters.
Classes are taught throughout the state by cer-
tified volunteer instructors who teach firearm safe-
ty and laws, basic hunting terminology, conserva-
tion, safe hunting practices, outdoor ethics, wildlife
identification and management, survival, field first
aid and the Florida Wildlife Code. The course is free
and prepares sportsmen for a safer, more reward-
ing experience while ini the outdoors.
S" The F1irrid- huintrer -tty course meetr all the
requirements for liunter sIdety training throughout
North America. It also is essential for Floridians
who wish to hunt in most other states or in Canada
and need to purchase a non-resident license.
Traditional classes are slated for the week of July
18-23 (no class July 20) from 6-9 p.m. in Hilliard and
the week of July 26 through Aug. 4 (no class Aug.
3)from 6-9 p.m. in Callahan. A bow hunting course
is slated from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 27 in Hilliard.

Kingfish are running offshore and striking deep with the aid of downriggers. T.D. Lacoss shows
off a king he landed recently.

Try Amberjack Hole for kings

K"' ingfish action offshore is excellent for
3 schoolers running to 12 pounds. Some of
the best kingfish action is coming from
K the Amberjack Hole.
"We could have caught over 20 kingfish if we
had decided to stay," Capt. T.D. Lacoss said. "We
were fishing at AH reef where there was a variety
of king mackerel and barracuda. The bait was
stacked up over many of the ledges there and the
wreck too."
Capt. Allen Mills reports that fishing is good off-
shore too.
"The water temperature is 78 degrees and the
offshore fishing is red hot," Mills said. "Bottom
fishing is excellent for red snapper and a few
grouper and the trolling is red hot for kingfish and
A few kings in the 20-pound class have also
begun to show up in the deep waters of the St.
Marys inlet. Kings have also moved inshore at the
Nassau Sound and seem to be running larger in
these popular kingfish waters.
Tarpon are running at the St. Marys inlet at
both the north and south jetty rocks. Some of the
best tarpon fishing is coming during the'very last
bf the falling tide while fishiig'ded ofn'the boutoiii
with cut whiting or menhaden. A low tide will
arrive at 10:20 a.m. Saturday, which sets up perfect
tidal conditions for tarpon fishing. A high tide will
arrive at 5:02 p.m.

. ..... A few slot-size redfish, 18-
27 inches, are running at the
St. Marys rock jetties during .
m K the incoming tide. Sheepshead
:--'^ fishing along the crusty rocks
should be excellent too in the
morning during low tide.
Sea trout are biting during

casting 1/4-ounce Cotee led
Terry Lacoss head jigs rigged with a
"Electric Chicken" color plas-
"'. tic tail. Some of the best action
ON THE is coming while working
WATER points of flooding grass and
flooded oyster bars.
Flounder fishing is excellent during the falling
tide at creek mouths where fishermen should do
well while fishing super slow wvith live bullhead
minnows or finger mullet.
Some nice-size bull whiting have been running
long the beaches of Amelia Island and are taking
fresh shrimp fished close to the bottom.

Frogs in the pond at Simmons Cove. The sounds for each species are different, the green tree frogs, the cricket frogs, the south-
ern toad and the myriad other noisy residents, but they all join in full voice as dusk approaches.

Sure, if I focus on it, I often hear loud and
noisy planes and helicopters overhead and a
constant background noise of automobile

attuned to. Instead I listen to nature.
The first sound I hear in the morning is a
repetitive refrain of "chuck wills widow,"

called goatsuckerss" is anyone's guess, but
like goats, they do settle in the warm roads
at night.
, The daytime is filled with bird sounds. I
hear the staccato "kik-kik-kik-kik" of the
kingfisher as it flies onto my pond-side bald
cypress tree to watch the fish in the retention
pond. Sometimes I hear a splash, and look
out from my computer desk to see the king-
fisher fly away with its catch.

'Lost grape

found on

First Coast

For the News-Leader
In a recent column we added
our voice to the trashing of
merlot But not mentioned
was a,misunderstood oddity.
Merlot from Chile often had a dif-
ferent character more robust
and flavorful than merlot pro-
duced elsewhere. We nosed
around to determine why and dis-
covered what Chilean vintners
had learned a dozen years ago.
Many of the grape vines they
thought were merlot were actual-
ly something else: "The lost
grape of Bordeaux."
Bordeaux wines are a blend of
several grapes. As they developed
their world-class status in the
17th, 18th
and 19th cen-
turies various U tic
blends were -'
tried, primari-
ly with caber-
net sauvi-
cabernet franc, merlot and a
grape believed to be an offshoot
of cabernet sauvignon known as
Carmenere, which dates back
to Roman times, was a difficult
grape to grow. It ripens late and
doesn't like high humidity and
that's a problem in coastal France
where it can get quite chilly and
wet in September and October.
When the dreaded root louse
phylloxera burrowed its way
through the vineyards of Europe
in the 1890s, it signaled the end
for carmenere. When the French
replanted they selected the most
.prn;,uientand profitable vines
and no new plantings of
carmenere were made.
Meanwhile, on the other side
of the world, Chilean wines were
evolving.. In the 1600s, Spanish
settlers brought with them
Spanish grape varieties that did
well in what is arguably the finest
grape-growing region in the
world. The 2,700-mile-long Chile
is the definition of geographic iso-"
lation. With the Antarctic ice off
its southern border, a desert off
the northern one, and its heart
squeezed between the Pacific
Ocean and the formidable Andes
Mountains, it is literally a cradle
for the choicest wine growing
conditions on the planet
The isolation has fostered a
wine-growing environment in
which little or no pesticides need
be used to ward off grape eating
predators. That enables Chile and
neighbor Argentina to be the only

WINE Continued from 1B
two countries in the world to not
have been afflicted by the lethal
phylloxera pest.'
But weather and insects aren't
the only threat to good wine; so is
a poor political climate. Under
Spanish rule Chilean wine pro-
duction was limited; it was pro-
duced mainly by the church for
religious ceremonies. It wasn't
until Jose de San Martin and
Bernardo O'Higgins brought
democracy to Chile in 1818 that
the potential was unleashed. By
the 1850s Chilean winemaking
was reaching a level of sophistica-
tion that made it ready for the
world market. But it didn't have
the right grapes: the French vari-.
eties that were the international
market's standard. So Chilean
landowners hired French wine-
makers to establish in their coun-
try the cabernets, merlot,
chardonnay and sauvignon blanc
grapes and from Bordeaux
came carmenere.
Somewhere along the line the
identity of carmenere was lost.
Looking very much alike, in
Chile merlot and carmenere
vines were planted together.
Unlike in France, where the cold,
wet Bordeaux autumns kept
carmenere production low, the
more ideal climate of Chile's
Maipo Valley was a boon for
carmenere, which flourished and

the wax myrtle snag on the oppo-
site pond bank. It doesn't linger
here long, though, because soon
enough the angry cries of a blue
jay alert the mockingbirds, and
both species begin their dive-
bomb attacks. I'm reminded of
oncoming drivers signaling with
their headlights the presence of a
traffic officer ahead. Like the offi-
cers, sometimes the hawk man-
ages to leave with a capture,.
sometimes it flies away empty-
taloned, so t6 speak. But always,

was considered a late-season
merlot. When phylloxera devas-
tated European vineyards in the
1890s, and the decision not to
replant carmenere was made,
Chile had the only remaining
carmenere vines in the world out-
side of research gardens. Only no
one knew it.
The other scourge of good
wine political climate -
brought a halt to Chilean wine
development just as it has so
often in other high potential wine
regions such as Argentina, South
Africa, Spain, the Danubian coun-
tries of Eastern Europe. From
1924 to 1989 Chile was beset by a
string of coups that kept the
country off balance. Under social-
ist president Salvador Allende
most Chilean industries were
nationalized in 1970, but even
after he was overthrown by a
coup in 1973, the following 16-
year cruel military dictatorship of
General Augusto Pinochet did
nothing for the wine industry.
When Pinochet's devastating
regime was overthrown in 1989
and democracy returned, Chile
was ready to rise to the chal-
Virtually overnight the
Chilean wine industry began to
make its mark on the world. An
emigration of Bordeaux wine tal-
ent reinvigorated the industry,
and this explains the appealing
style of so many Chilean wines

driven out by those golf-ball-sized
and smaller amphibians that
share the pond and landscape
with me. First one frog sounds,
then a few more and suddenly the
cacophony starts in earnest The
sounds for each species are differ-
ent, the green tree frogs, the
cricket frogs, the southern toad
and the myriad other noisy resi-
dents, but they all join in fullvoice
as dusk approaches.
In spring we can chart the
"waking up" of the different
species from their winter dorman-
cy, by listening to their various
voices and can hear the diversity
of the chorus build up over the
days into summer.
By the time the frogs settle
down, the night silence is broken
by a few fits and starts of frog

made from cabernet sauvignon.
These wines have an engaging
combination of fruitiness inter-
twined with structure and ele-
gance that epitomizes great
Bordeaux. Concha y Toro's
Casillero del Diablo, Casa
Lapostalle, Las Vascos and
Veramonte are vintners whose
cabs, chardonnays and sauvignon
blancs are all available at local
markets in the $10 to $11 range.
They are among the finest wines
at that price on the First Coast
It was the Chilean merlots,
however, that puzzled enologists
for many years. Why were these
sumptuous wines often more full
bodied, more flavorful, deeper in
color and more robust than mer-
lots from elsewhere? Was it the
soil, the climate? In 1993 the,
French viticulturist Jean-Michel
Boursiquit used DNA mapping to
discover that two similar, but dif-
ferent, vines had been growing
together for more than a century.
When the grapes were separated
and pressed, they gave different
results. And when winemakers
tasted the pure carmenere, they
realized they had been ignoring a
potential huge and profitable
Chilean winemakers stamped-
ed to recognize, then segregate
and develop carmenere. More
than a score of labels now pro-
duce the varietal. They see it
developing to fill the same posi-

sounds interspersed by our good-
night song, "Who Cooks for You,"
from the barred owl. I'll bet you
all are familiar with this sound of
a common owl in our midst Once
you put the phrase "who cooks for
you" on the call, you'll never for-
get it
Bucko and I love these sounds
and keep our window open at
night even on the hottest summer
days to listen to these calls. When
I am working on my computer
during the day, I always have one
ear and one eye cocked outside.
Other folks in our neighborhood
are not so sound-tolerant, and
sometimes complain about the
frog calls. Like the rest of Amelia
Island's true nature, however, the
frogs must be lived with. Maybe
folks can put noise restrictions

You can right now taste this
wonderful wine. Santa Alicia
Riserva (Amelia liquors $10)
came out on top in our tasting
due to bolder flavor, more com-
plex aroma and a longer finish.
Concha y Toro's Casillero del
Diablo label ($10 Publix) was
milder and did not convey the
excitement of the Santa Alicia.
Santa Carolina ($14 Publix) is a
drinkable wine, but the Santa
Alicia is preferred with its
intense, bright red color, aroma
of blackberries and cassis, and a
well-balanced, delicate finish.
Drink it with roasted red meats
such as grilled steak, roasted
lamb or lamb-chops, roasted
turkey. Or have it as an aperitif
with mature cheeses such as
brie, gouda, gruyere and
parmiggiano-reggiano. And when
you drink it, savor the land:
locked between glacial ice and
arid desert, between Pacific and
Andes. That's called terroir and is
another story for another time.

and travel timing limits on the air-
planes in our vicinity-nothing
landing after 10 p.m. or before 7
a.m., like in the vicinity of Wash-
ington D.C.'s Reagan Internation-
al Airport, for instance. But, as for
the frogs and hawks and owls,
hopefully they are here to stay.
So, tune your'eyes and ears to
these sounds instead of the
sounds of increasing human pop-
ulation pressures and your life
will be less stressful. At least, this
works for Bucko and me... give it
a try.

What was he thinking of? In
"Pirates of the Caribbean," Depp
was famously channeling Keith
Richards, which may have
primed us to look for possible
inspirations for this perform-
ance. But leaving "Pirates" aside,

But here is the important

formance seems to exist almost

despite his character. "Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory" has
its own life and energy, generat-
ed by Charlie and Grandpa Joe
and their wacky household, by

his mysterious concerns, the
adventures go on without him.
