Commissioners chastise Czymbor again
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners criticized but did not for-
mally reprimand City Manager
Michael Czymbor during a special
meeting Wednesday called to ques-
tion a city purchase paid before
being approved by the commission.
But it was plain Czymbor has
lost the confidence of the mayor
and vice mayor.
Mayor Bill Leeper said he has
"lost trust in the city manager's abil-
ity to lead."
"You acted irresponsibly," Vice
Mayor Joe Gerrity told Czymbor. "I
don't find that acceptable by any
stretch of the imagination. This atti-
tude that we have to spend money
just doesn't cut it with me."
The commission has repri-
manded Czymbor twice previously,
but took no vote Wednesday. "I
think something has to change,"
Leeper said, but "What's going to
change after being reprimanded a
The controversy began at a Dec.
18 meeting when commissioners
questioned a $10,250 expenditure to
"beautify" the city mulch site out
by the airport. It was later discov-
ered that $3,500 had already been
spent to buy 20 live oak trees, and
that those trees had already been
planted before the meeting to
approve the purchase on Dec. 18.
Finance Director Patti Clifford
said Wednesday she had "antici-
pated a successful budget amend-
ment" for the $3,500 that was to be
taken out of city impact fees to pur-
chase the trees. Impact fees are
one-time charges paid by residents
to offset public-service costs of new
Clifford wrote in an e-mail to
Czymbor on Dec. 3, "In order to
use impact fees the expenditure
must be for something new. ... If
we do not spend the money, we
need to refund it to the taxpayers or
find a way to transfer the unused
portion to the Administration
Impact Fees balance. No research
has been performed for this cir-
Czymbor also defended the
expenditure, saying city code states
that up to $15,000, budgeted or
unbudgeted, can be spent by the
city manager without commission
approval, and that includes taking
money from impact fees. He said he

day after the last commission meet-

Few things bug me more than
unsolicited telemarketing calls -
especially on the weekend. That's
why my family registered our

that millions of numbers would
begin dropping off the list this
year when a five-year expiration
date kicks in - meaning people

again. Fortunately, Congress is
working on legislation to make

FRIDAY, JANUARY 4,2008 NEWS News-Leader
John Lloyd walks along the shore at Fernandina Beach.
A Day at the Beach'
moments in time
For the News Leader
I am not a photographer. I
know little about photography. I
have never read a book on the
topic. I never even owned a cam-
era other than a "snap-shot"
Kodak until Christmas 2006 when
my wife presented me a pocket-
sized digital camera. She sug-
gested that I carry it with me on
my daily beach walks to record
interesting sights that I might
On May 25, just five months
later, I lost the camera to the rav-
ages of the sea. My values of exis-
tence on this planet changed for-
ever on that day.
The life of little seven-year-old
Will Wynne was spared by the
grace of God. Although I did not
realize it at the time, I would be
the last person to ever see his
father, Brian, alive. It is impossible
to erase from memory the look
in his eyes as he pleaded for me to
save his son at the same moment
he pushed Will toward me.
A month later, my wife bought
me a new camera, a Sony 8.1 Pixel
15X Cyber Shot. That is the only
camera I own.
When I renewed my beach
walks, I hesitated to walk any-
where near where the drowning
incident occurred. I had night-
mares for months after the drown-
ing and needed no reminder to
further haunt me.
In the progress of learning to
release the torment I started to
think of how the last view of real-
ity for Brian was the beach at
Fernandina. It was, literally, his
last "day at the beach."
This is simply impossible to
properly explain, but I began to
view things through his eyes, like
every day was my last day at the
beach. I realized that I was begin-
ning to see things that I never
before observed. Little, subtle
moments in time that usually van-
ish without notice. The lens of my
camera reflected my view of life -
particularly life at the beach - as
I had never previously experi-
It was especially little children,
children like Will Wynne, who
captured my attention. I saw, in a
profound manner, how free they
were when at the beach, freer per-
haps at the beach than any other
place they knew. There they were
free to scream, dance, build sand
castles or walls to restrain the tide,
frolic in the sea, dare to brave the
waves, chase birds, see parents
acting like children, engage in
mud fights and release their
boundless imaginations - and so
much more. I loved to arrest those
precious moments in time. Not
only the children, but all who ven-
tured into the world of freedom.
That, in brief, is the story of "A
Day at the Beach."
I begin to share my photo-
graphs, via e-mail, with some of
the subjects I photographed, par-
ents, surfers, dog owners, fisher-
men, sun lovers, joggers, walkers
- the whole lot!
The feedback was surprising-
ly rewarding, and from that
encouragement the concept of
"HupPhoto" was born.
Well, it sure beats sitting in a

site was a "poor choice of words."
The trees, he said, were really plant-

City Attorney Tammi Bach point-
ed out, however, that expenditure of
impact fees requires commission
approval. She said after the meeting
that the ordinance states that impact
fees, if not spent, must be refunded
to the people who paid them, and
cannot be put into the general fund.
She also noted that returning the
fees to individuals would be a com-
plicated process that would require
large amounts of staff time and
When questioned by Commis-
sioner Ron Sapp about the reason
for spending the impact fees,

heads together to find out how to

also common practice to process

That was the message
Wednesday during the Weapons

"Some of you have a dream to
start a business," conference host
pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Robinson
Jr., said. "We don't want that dream
to die. We want to feed it. We want
to encourage you to use what God
has (given) you."
The three-night conference, in
its fourth year, concludes tonight at

To make changes in your life,
he told his audience, "Start where
you are, use what you have and do
what you can," Robinson said.
"You want to do some things,
but you think other things are

big position to do !ii,..l.ih,-." he
"If God says you can do it, you
can do it . .. You need to decide
tonight, whatever God has given
me, I'm going to use what I have,"
Setting the foundation for spir-

FREE "LIVING TRUST" SEMINAR
Find out how you may be able to
Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly - Without Probate Fees & 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 guar-
antees 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 insurance 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 life-
time by avoiding a 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 trusts attend one of these free seminars.

Manger scene still tells the story of God's plan
M. N :is of the Manger" was the Rev.
Mark Tuso's message Dec. 16 at Gray
Gables First Baptist Church. Scripture:
Galatians 4:4-5. The manger scene still tells
the story of God's plan to save the world.
Though not traditionally considered to be a
Christmas passage, these verses reveal four
critical components of the manger message:
God's providence, v. 4a; God's power, v. 4b;
God's purpose, v. 5a; God's pleasure v. 5b.

The word "worship" has become a buzz-
word in church music circles. Christian
artists perform worship concerts and
Christian radio plays worship music. Now,
music publishers are turning out a new
genre of Christmas musicals for music min-
istries called "worship experience."
Primarily, worship music can be defined at
music that beckons the audience to join in
praise to God. The texts of the songs in the
worship music genre speak directly to God
in a personal way. These texts are a means
to personal expression and intimacy with
God, because he has made Himself known
to us, personally.
The Sanctuary Choir of First Baptist
Church, Fernandina beach, led by the Rev.

cated their intent to enlarge the county
planning and zoning board, from eight to
11 members, to provide for more diversi-
ty of membership.
We think there's a better way.
We do advocate enlarging the board, to nine
members, to reduce the chance of tie votes.
But the best way to bring new blood to the
planning board is to do just that - bring in new
blood to replace the old blood.
We especially think it's time to replace board
veterans Tom Ford of Bryceville and Jeanne
Scott, originally appointed to represent Callahan.
Ford, the chair, has been on the board at least
three terms and has been criticized for his man-
ner in stifling public comment. Scott no longer
lives in her original district.
That doesn't mean, however, commissioners
should appoint to the board the candidates foisted
on them by an organized campaign led by
The Republicans have won the last several
elections for commission - they hold all five
seats - and while a nonpartisan appointment
would be welcome, it's certainly not
We especially doubt the board will
appoint Angle Hall, a Democrat defeated by
Republican Barry Holloway in the 2006
election. This is not to comment on Hall's qualifi-
cations for planning board; she is qualified. But
Democrats cannot expect to win from a
Republican board what they can't win at the
However, the commission has a dozen or more
applicants for planning board seats, many of them
well qualified. We strongly urge that when Ford
and Scott's terms expire March 31, and a new
seat is added, that qualified newcomers be tapped
We also think the commission should make
plain that board members appointed to represent
one of the county's geographical districts should
live in that district. Scott, for example, apparently
moved from District 5 (Callahan) to District 4
(Hilliard and Bryceville) even before District 5
Commissioner Marianne Marshall reappointed
her four years ago.
Now, three of the eight members of the board
live in the same West Side district (Hilliard and
The Democrats' point - that the county plan-
ning board is not sufficiently diverse, that devel-
oper interests are overrepresented, that the pub-
lic will is often ignored - is well taken.
But Republican or Democrat, we expect good
government that is representative of all of us. The
county commission has an opportunity to remake
the planning and zoning board to better reflect
the public interest. It should do so.

Re: "Do unto others" (Dec. 21).
I can understand some of the letter writer's frus-
tration. We have a long way to go before all of us get
real opportunity for equal status. I am compelled,
however, to make one observation. "None" of us are
on this continent whose origins did not begin in anoth-
er place on Earth. We are now at a time that cannot
allow unbridled entry into "our" country.
Her letter indicates that she is of American Indian
heritage and should be proud of that. Her last name
indicates she may be married to someone of Polish her-
itage. I am of Irish, Spanish and Swedish heritage. So
what? "None" of us would be free to express these opin-
ions if we were not all Americans of the same accord.
Last month letter writers were critical of a police offi-
cer's right to use a Taser. I think citizens are very
uneducated in the procedures police officers use in sit-
uations where subjects do not comply with the officer's
Officers have procedures and protocols to follow in
JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILY TRIBUNE
JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILY TRIBUNE
situations where other citizens or themselves are put
in danger. Officers first verbally warn the subject in
question. If the subject does not comply with the ver-
bal warning then they are subject to a Taser.
Look at it from a police officer's point of view. You
pull up to a bar where you are told subjects are being
combative, possibly drunk or even on narcotics. When
an officer pulls up to a scene they never know what
they are about to face. Just think how that feels? Police
officers die every day in the line of duty. They deal with
people every day that are out to hurt them as well as
others. I think if anyone questions what a police offi-
cer experiences on a daily basis they need to volunteer
and ride with an officer for just one day. Hopefully, you
will be able to experience how it feels to be put in
that officer's shoes and see what they deal with.
It's easy to judge an officer when you're the one
always out at a club or party consuming alcohol. The
Taser is not what kills people, it's people's actions
that kill people. It is a proven fact that deaths due to
Taser use are linked to influence of narcotics. In ref-
erence to the incident of a young man that died in
Jacksonville after use of a Taser by a JSO officer, he
had a gun in his pocket, punched that officer and was
on narcotics. That officer had every right to defend
himself. What would you have done in that situation?

hunt and I am tired of being harassed by them.

VIEWPOINT/BILL STEIGERWALD/PITESBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Ron Paul, an authentic salesman of freedom
Ken and Marcia Knight's orange 1973 Superbeetle is covered

t won't matter how high Ron
Paul finished in the Iowa cau-
cuses Thursday or in the
New Hampshire primary
Tuesday or anywhere else.
He's already won his prize.
Despite the fact that his ideas
and his unconditional devotion to
the Constitution are exactly what
America needs, the Pittsburgh-
raised libertarian doctor and 10-
term Texas congressman isn't
going to become the Republican
presidential nominee. He and
everyone else who hasn't lost his
grip on political reality has always
known that America's future
doesn't include a President Ron
Yet Dr. Paul - arguably the
closest thing to a libertarian
America's voters have seen since
Grover Cleveland - has already
succeeded beyond his and any
liberty-lover's wildest dreams.
In April, shortly after he
announced he'd run for presi-
dent, Paul told the Pittsburgh
Tribune-Review that his goal -
besides winning, of course - was
to make an impact on the race
and to spread his ideas about
maximizing freedom, limiting the
federal government and practic-
ing nonintervention overseas.
Though his presence at the
debates has shown what a bunch
of unprincipled, flip-flopping, war-
loving, faux conservatives
Messrs. Romney, Giuliani,
Huckabee and McCain are, Paul's
political impact on the primaries
has been minimal - so far.
The "Paulistas" who are
fomenting and funding "The Ron
Paul Revolution" in the virtual
streets of the Internet complain
that the mainstream media have
ignored Paul. But it's not true.
He could be the most widely
publicized libertarian politician in
U.S. history. He and his "radical"
ideas have been publicized,
praised or treated with respect by
everyone from the constitutional-
ly impaired Tim Russert to Jay
Leno, Stephen Colbert and
Carlson, perhaps Paul's
biggest fan on TV, recently trav-
eled the campaign trail with Paul
in Nevada and wrote about it for
The New Republic.
Carlson observed the same
humble, charisma-free candidate
I saw late last June when Paul
came to Pittsburgh to visit his old
house as part of a "Today" show
series on "Candidate's Cribs."
Paul, as debate-watchers
know, is the anti-Mitt Romney.
But Carlson notes, correctly, that
Paul's seriousness and lack of
political slickness is a large part
of his appeal.
"His fans don't read his awk-
wardness as a social phobia, but
as a sign of authenticity. Paul
never outshines his message,
which is unchanging: Let adults
make their own choices; liberty
works. For a unified theory of
everything, it's pretty simple.
And Paul sincerely believes it."
Paul has shocked the political
establishment by attracting a
zealous web-connected army of
young people and raising $20 mil-
lion, almost exclusively over the
He isn't going to become pres-
ident and he isn't going to con-
vert the sleeping masses, the lib-
eral media or even his own lost
party to the tenets of libertarian-
But sometimes winning the
election isn't what matters in the
long run. Ideas do.
Remember Barry Goldwater?
His crushing defeat in 1964 rein-
vigorated conservatism and
spawned the Reagan Revolution.
In a country still cruising down
the road to socialism, Ron Paul's
success in selling freedom is a
sign of hope.

GREGORY SMITH, M.D.
Vreeman of the
School of Medicine for years
had believed several medical
"truths," but could find no
hard data to prove these
beliefs. Well, it turns out that
several of these truths are
simply medical myths and
their findings were recently
published in the most recent
edition of The British Medical
The authors commented
that they were surprised by
how little evidence they could
find to support many com-
mon assumptions. Carroll
noted that "many doctors
actually perpetuate many of
these myths, even though
they're untrue or unproven."
The study's authors felt
that people mayfeel
the need for a nap after
a Thanksgiving meal
because they have
likely overeaten and
then sit aroundfor
hours in a warm room.
For example, many
believe that a turkey dinner
can make you overly tired
due to the fact that turkey
contains "a lot of tryptophan,"
an amino acid involved in
sleep control. However, beef
and chicken contain just as
much tryptophan and a ham
and cheese sandwich has
even more, according to
The study's authors felt

for a nap after a Thanksgiving
meal because they have likely
overeaten and then sit around
for hours in a warm room.
Top that off with a little alco-
hol and it becomes that more
difficult to keep your eyes
Another so-called fact is
that reading in dim light can
ruin your eyes. The report
notes that "while reading in
the dark may cause tempo-
rary eye strain, there's no evi-
dence that it causes perma-
nent damage." In fact, the
paper warns that people are
more likely to harm their
eyes by failing to wear sun-
A cut hair is no more like-
ly to grow back faster or
thicker, but this myth is still
propagated. Vreeman notes
that a cut hair is no thicker
but its denser appearance is
an optical illusion. An uncut
or longer hair may appear
finer because it may have
been bleached by the sun or
chemicals or may appear
finer because it tapers to its
end. The paper also explains
that while many people
believe hair and fingernails
continue to grow after a per-
son dies, this is simply not
Another "truth" that the
authors challenged regarded
the use of cell phones in hos-
pitals. Models in the 1990's
did lead to monitoring equip-
ment malfunctions, which
lead most hospitals to ban "in-
house" cell phone use.
However, a 2007 study found
no interference from cell
phones in 300 tests, accord-
ing to the article, which notes
that improved technology has
made phones safer. However,
most hospitals continue to
ban cell phones due to the
potential for an electrical mal-
function of monitoring equip-

The Pirates headed to Ashland, Ky., the day after
Christmas to participate in an annual invitational tour-
nament. They won their first game but dropped two.
In their opening game Dec. 27, the Pirates edged
Pendleton County 56-53. The Pirates led 27-25 at half-
time and 44-43 after three quarters and then outscored
Pendleton 12-10 in the fourth quarter.
"We got off to a good start in the first game,"
Fernandina Beach High School Coach Matt Schreiber
said. "We got up 12-2, let them back in it and it was a
dogfight from then on."
Four Pirates scored in double figures. Trey
Kublbock led with 13 points, Chris Keffer scored 12
and Patrick Garvin and Carlos Holcey had 11 apiece.
Kublbock also had five rebounds, an assist, a block and
three steals. Keffer pulled down seven boards and also
had a pair of steals. Garvin had nine rebounds, three
assists and a steal and Holcey had three rebounds, an
assist and two steals.
The Pirates faced host Blazer High School on Dec.
28 and lost 68-55. Fernandina cut into Ashland's 15-9
first quarter lead, scoring 25 points to the hosts' 17 in
the second quarter to take a 34-32 halftime lead. But
Ashland came back in the second half, outscoring
the Pirates 12-4 in the third quarter and 24-17 in the
"We just went cold in the second half and couldn't
make a shot," Schreiber said.
Holcey was the lone Pirate in double figures with
20 points. He also had eight rebounds. Jake Brogdon
scored eight points and had three assists and three
steals. Kublbock had seven points, six rebounds, an
assist and a steal. Garvin had six points, nine rebounds,
two assists and one steal.
On Dec. 29, the Pirates fell 70-43 to Henderson
County. Henderson jumped out to a 20-7 first-quarter
lead and led 42-21 at halftime.
"This was probably the best opponent we faced this
year," Schreiber said. "A solid team that pressured the
basketball very well. It was a good test for us. They
just overpowered us."
Matt Brown was the Pirates' scoring leader with 15
points. He also had seven rebounds, an assist and
two steals. Kublbock scored seven points and had
one rebound and two assists.
The Pirates (9-5) are back home and host Trinity

offset the 90 and minus 5 of Tony
Stubits with the team finishing

Following the mixer, the quar-
terly shootout, involving the play-
ers who were the leading win-

NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINA BEACH, FL
F or months we longtime friends planned, prepared
and anticipated hiking the Grand Canyon from the
South Rim to the North Rim.
Larry Lessin, Burt K Bright of Fernandina
Beach, Eric Mendelsohn, David Shapiro and I - ages
almost 70 to almost 72 - would hike the first day down the
South Kaibab Trail to Phantom Ranch near the Colorado
River at the bottom, the second day halfway up the north
slope (North Kaibab Trail) to Cottonwood Campground,
and the third day to the North Rim. Each leg is seven
Hiking seven miles a day at age 70 is no big deal, but
this was in the August heat carrying 20-pound backpacks
on steep, difficult trails. We were well aware that tempera-
ture at the bottom of the canyon could be more than 100
degrees, and people have died of dehydration and insuffi-
cient electrolytes. There are scorpions, snakes and moun-
tain lions. People have fallen off cliffs.
"You're crazy," friends told us. "Why don't you go to
But the challenge, the camaraderie, the magic of the
canyon and maybe a little peer pressure - hey, we met
when we were teenagers and earlier - were too strong a
Medically among us, there have been two serious can-
cers, a part of a lung removed, a coronary artery stent,
back surgeries and I'm sure more I don't know about. But
we all had our hearts checked and approved.
It was Eric, still part Boy Scout, who instigated the
trip. Eric's the one who in 2006 had a piece of each kidney
removed and has the stent. Now (rivaling planning the
Normandy Invasion) he signed us up, planned the logis-
tics, made most of the reservations, provided lists of
equipment and supplies and told us to exercise and get in

Burt and Larry (good to have a physician along) met
when their mothers were pushing them side-by-side in
baby carriages. They met Eric when they were six. David
and I came along at about 15. We have lived long enough
to know blessings and pain.
To prepare Burt swam, worked out at a gym and hiked
his neighborhood with a backpack. He lamented that in
Fernandina Beach he had no hills. David with backpack
hiked up the big hill in his neighborhood and miles more.
Larry put on his backpack, hiked the hills of West
Virginia and got on his incline treadmill. Eric and I hiked
up and down Sugar Loaf Mountain and then Old Rag in
The calendar caught up with us and on Saturday, Aug.
25, we met at the Fairfield Inn in Flagstaff, Ariz. Dinner
was at the Beaver Street Brewery, where we each order-
ed a beer and fortified ourselves with food for the coming
hike. We laughed, talked and wondered aloud if we were
crazy for doing this. We decided to give ourselves nick-
names - Zayde (Yiddish for grandfather) 1 through 5 - in
the order in which we became grandfathers. I was Zayde
5, then we shortened it to Z1 through Z5.
Sunday Eric drove us to the Maswick Inn near the
South Rim. Every building had a video or sign about tak-

ing enough water into the canyon. A poster showed a
young woman who had run the Boston Marathon and
died a few months later in the canyon - because she had-
n't taken enough water. Eric and Larry had insisted that
we each carry four liters of water. I grumbled, because a
liter weighs 2.2 pounds and four liters would be almost
half the weight of our backpack. But I carried four. Larry
also brought packets of electrolyte powder to put in our
Day 1 - Monday we rose at 4:30 a.m., took a shuttle
to the trailhead, and at 5:45 a.m. Eric put a foot into the

would reach Phantom Ranch, seven miles of downhill hik-

One of David Cronenberg's
finest films with Viggo Mortensen

life of a newborn infant. A diary
leads her to the sealed world of
the Russians, led byArmin
Mueller-Stahl as the patriarch
and Vincent Cassel as his son;
the result isn't exactly a crime
story, but a thriller about human
nature. Scenes of startling vio-

a superior ghost story
example of why it is
more frightening to
await something than
to experience it. "The
Orphanage" has every opportu-
nity to descend into routine
shock and horror, or even into
the pits with the slasher pic-
tures, but it pulls the trigger
only a couple of times. The rest
is all waiting, anticipating,
dreading. We need the genuine
jolt that comes about midway to
let us see what the movie is
capable of. The rest is fear.

That makes the film into a
superior ghost story, if indeed
there are ghosts in it. I am not
sure: They may instead be the
experience or illusion of ghosts
in the mind of the heroine, and
since we see through her eyes,
we see what she sees, and are
no more capable than she is of
being certain. That means when
she walks down a dark stair-
case, or into an unlit corridor or
a gloomy room, we're tense and
fearful, whether we're experi-
encing a haunted house or a
haunted mind. And when she
follows her son into a pitch
black cave, her flashlight shows
only a thread of light through
The movie centers on Laura
(Belen Rueda), who as a young
girl was raised in the orphanage
before being taken away one
day and adopted. Now in her
30s, she has returned with her
husband, Carlos (Fernando
Cayo), and their young son,
Simon (Roger Princep), to buy
the orphanage and run it as a
home for sick or disabled chil-
dren. She has memories here,
most of them happy, she
believes, but as images begin to
swim into her mind and even
her vision, she has horrifying
notions about what might have
happened to the playmates she
left behind on that summer day
30 years ago.
Simon, too, seems disturbed,
and since no other children
have arrived, he creates imagi-
nary playmates. One of them, a
boy with a sack over his head,
he shows in a drawing to his
mother, who is startled because
this very image exists in her
own mind. Does that mean -

FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 2008/News-Leader
Back at the rest stop, wet from more rain, we got
under cover and redistributed the contents from
David's pack to the others. Burt took off for
Phantom Ranch with the two packs and Eric to
secure our reservations and try to get us lower
bunks (they are double-deckers).
Together, Larry, David and I hiked the remaining
three miles, stopping frequently for David to rest.
About 50 yards from Phantom Ranch, David could
go no further. I asked if it was his foot or his energy.
He said energy, so I gave him water and Larry gave
him nuts and raisins. I proceeded to Phantom
Ranch, where I saw Eric. He took some water and
went to help with Larry and David. I had expected to
arrive at Phantom Ranch between 10 and 11 a.m. It
was 4:30 p.m.
Eric had secured an air-conditioned cabin occu-
pied by only us, so we all got lower bunks. Burt was
in bed under the covers recovering from his two-
backpack trek and nursing a bruised rib from a fall
that would bother him for days. I got my backpack
off and with sore calves and quads collapsed on a
bed. An EMT ranger wrapped David's foot and gave
him ice to reduce swelling. After showers we went to
the 6:30 sitting in the dining room, where David
derived sympathy from some young English nurses
and I noted with pride that everyone else was
younger, generally much younger.
The following morning we said goodbye to David.
He was taken out of the canyon by helicopter -

CANYON Continued from 1B
ing to an altitude 4,800 feet lower than the South
Rim. The hike would not be uneventful.
Almost two miles down and a drop in elevation of
almost 1,000 feet, we reached Cedar Ridge, where
we relaxed briefly. There was no water here and no
water anywhere on this trail.
Mules carrying people had the right of way, and
since they could kick to the side, it was wise to give
them plenty of space. They left their evidence, and I
noticed they didn't digest grass very well.
We continued, and then it began to rain. It was so
heavy we couldn't see the canyon, and then less than
100 yards away lightning hit a peak, raising the hair
on our arms and a cloud of rock dust. I don't believe
I have ever come so close to being hit by lightning.
Shortly thereafter another bolt hit, not as close, and
the rain subsided and we resumed our hike.
Now the ground was saturated with water. I fol-
lowed David and watched with alarm as he stepped
into a puddle and fell. He quickly got up, but one of
his walking poles was bent and he finally admitted to
pain in his foot. It seemed unlikely he had broken
anything and we proceeded.
I stayed behind with David - it gave me a chance
to take photos with my new camera - but eventually
Burt and Larry were out of sight and I realized
David's pace was slowing. I suggested he sit down
while I went for help. Fifteen minutes later, I came
upon the others at a rest stop. Burt immediately vol-
unteered to go for David and I followed behind.

amazingly, at taxpayer's expense. For the rest
of the trip we missed David and worried about his
Hike to Cottonwood campground
About 6:05 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28, the now four
of us hiked out of Phantom Ranch (altitude 2,425
feet) between high canyon walls in "the box" beside
Bright Angel Creek. Most of the day we hiked a
gradual uphill grade and the walls provided shade,
making this the easiest day. Eric, unlike the previ-
ous day, was trailing behind. I asked if everything
was OK, and he replied that he was trying not to
breathe with his mouth open to preserve moisture,
which was slowing him. Really! Later Larry asked
the same question, and Eric admitted he was
pooped. Alas, Eric was human like the rest of us.
The canyon is a massive amount of rock and
stone. Larry was the most knowledgeable about the
different types and layers, such as granite, quartz,
limestone, sandstone and the black Vishnu shist
with veins of Zoroaster granite. The last type is
about 1.8 billion years old. Hey, we're only in our
We came upon a bog of black water full of rotting
vegetation and possibly animal life, such as snakes
(oh no!) and we had to get through it. Fortunately,
there were rocks scattered throughout and we
stepped from one to another using the poles for bal-
ance. We all came through with flying colors.
After awhile across the stream, we saw Ribbon
Falls cascading down. Occasionally we passed hik-
ers headed for Phantom Ranch and stopped at
shady spots to rest, drink and snack. The hike
seemed so long, we began to wonder if we had
passed Cottonwood. Eric fished out a map and we
continued forward, reaching the campground in
about half a mile. It was about noon.
We came upon the ranger's house and chose
campsite 10 because of its shade and proximity to
the stream. There was a picnic table and a tall T-
shaped rig to hang our backpacks away from ani-
mals. After lunch, we spread out our sleeping mats
and discovered the site came with numerous tiny
Later the ranger, Betsy Arnou from New York,
stopped by and said if the ants got really bad, we
could knock on her door any time and there would
be a bed. At that point we each had a fantasy, but I
think she was sincere and not really propositioning
us, considering there were many other stud hikers
around much younger and bigger than us.
After the sun went down I lay down on my mat
anticipating a sky full of stars that in the suburbs get
wiped out by light pollution. Alas, the moon was full,
providing its own pollution, and so bright it was dif-
ficult to sleep. Not only that, but I couldn't find a
comfortable position on my foam rubber mat.
Eventually I fell asleep, the moon and the mat be
The North Rim
The next morning we breakfasted on bars, nuts
and raisins and set out for our last day's hike - the
steep trek to the North Rim.
Fortunately there were shady spots to stop and
rest. At one of these we came upon a volunteer
ranger, George Varga, who was friendly, knowledge-
able and helpful. Turns out he was 68, a retired
Naval officer and a high school math teacher. Now

A souvenir T-shirt shows the route of the rim-
to-rim trek of the Grand Canyon, completed
by Burt K. Bright of Fernandina Beach and
three of his lifelong friends. A fourth friend
had to drop out part way through the journey
due to an injury.
he and his wife vacation from San Diego by volun-
teering at the Grand Canyon. Burt, a retired Air
Force officer, and George exchanged career experi-
ences and determined their paths had crossed in
Eventually we reached Supai Tunnel, a rest stop
with water and toilets. There were amateur hikers
with inadequate water and George, still with us,
assisted them. Eventually Eric said it was time to
move on, but I wasn't ready. Eric took off, and I
don't think I saw him again until the top. I began
falling behind Larry and Burt as I got winded hik-
ing with a 20-pound backpack up a steep trail that
felt steeper at 7,000 feet (thanks to the thin air).
From Supai Tunnel to the rim is 1.8 miles and a
1,400-foot climb in elevation. George stuck with me.
I needed to stop and catch my breath more often
than Burt and Larry. The lungs just needed an occa-
sional break. We passed the Coconina Overlook a
mile from the top. George suggested that when we
got to the top, he call for a shuttle to take us the
final two miles to the lodge. I politely declined.
George took our picture in front of the Grand
Canyon North Rim sign, and we hiked the two miles
to the Grand Canyon Lodge. As we approached with
beards and backpacks, with poles and boots, I was
aware of tourists looking at us admiringly.
The next morning we were driven back to the
South Rim - more than four hours and 215 miles.

Were we crazy to hike across the Grand Canyon
with backpacks in the August heat?
Hell, yes. To me, the Grand Canyon is beautiful,
magical, spiritual. Yes, we were almost struck by
lightning. But we dressed, ate and drank properly
and put electrolytes in our water. We were well
equipped, got in shape, stayed away from cliff
edges, rested and, most importantly, looked out for
And we joked, we reminisced, we trusted each
other. And we rarely talked about sports, politics,
women or fixing motorcycles (riding them,
maybe!). We proved to ourselves that in many ways,
we are still young, and maybe in some ways better
than ever. We were grateful to Eric for his leader-
ship and fortunate to have such lifelong friends.
