To say Warren Chard loves

of Friends of Fort Clinch has

"historical interpretation" since
he was 16 years old.
Retired from a 26-year career
in the Navy, Chard has por-
trayed soldiers from the Civil
War period up to current-day sol-
diers from Iraq and Afghanistan.
He was in Gettysburg in 1963
and was in Tennessee for the

"I've been to lots of forts all
over, but ... Fort Clinch is the

concerned," said Chard.
For the past 15 years, Chard
has participated in activities at
Fort Clinch, including the annu-
al garrison held each May when
volunteers portray life in 1864
during the Union occupation.
When asked why he does it,
he replies, "I want to promote
the fort and what it stood for

As the baby-boomer genera-
tion comes of age, conditions
affecting vision seem to be get-
ting more attention in doctor's
offices around the country.
Roughly 200,000 cases of age-
related macular degeneration
(AMD) get diagnosed each year,
a disease that affects women
more frequently than men.
Age-related macular degener-
ation is the No. 1 cause of vision
loss in adults ages 60 and older.
It affects the macula, the section
of the eye that focuses on fine
detail. As a result, AMD causes
S^ the loss of sharp, central vision,
which is necessary for normal,
daily tasks such as reading and
"Macular degeneration does
affect women more often than
men, as shown in many of our
large studies," explains Larry

.. ...s.m.....than men,
AMD is more prevalent among
women. Aside from age and sex,
other risk factors include:
Caucasian adults are more
likely to lose vision from AMD
than African Americans.
AMD can sneak up on people
because it usually doesn't hurt. It
can progress gradually. In some
cases, the patient fails to notice
any significant change before it's
too late. In other cases, the dis-
ease course is more rapid and'
can result in visual impairment in
both eyes. That is why it is so
important to get regular eye
Early detection is key because
treating AMD aggressively, early
on, can slow the loss of vision.
Treatment for AMD includes
special drugs, laser therapies,
vitamins and vision-assisting
'"There are many new treat-
ments on the horizon," says
Singerman. "We have proven the
benefit of anti-VEGF (Vascular
Endothelial Growth Factor)
drugs. Newer drugs, including
small interfering RNA, are main-
ly aimed at reducing the frequen-
cy of intravitreal injection of the
older drugs, which may be used
every four to six weeks, for as
much or more than a year."
Anti-VEGF drugs are
designed to hinder new blood
vessel formation, the cause of
one type of AMD, and require
regular injections into the eye.
The newer drugs work by
destroying strands of messenger
RNA, which is responsible for
producing harmful proteins.
They require fewer injections.
The American Academy of
Ophthalmology recommends a
comprehensive eye exam every
one to two years for seniors over
the age of 65, and every two to
four years for adults between 40
and 65. AMD can be diagnosed
at a routine eye exam.
There are also warning signs
associated with AMD. If you
experience any of the following
vision symptoms, contact an eye
Lines or edges that appear
wavy or distorted;
Blurry faces or difficulty
Dark or empty spaces that
block the center of your vision;

"fairly low-cost ways to do that."
Mayor Bill Leeper, however,
said right now "there are too many
unknowns" and that the city
should prioritize the issues and
secure funding sources before
malting any decisions.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said after the meeting in
an e-mail that funding sources for
the plaza improvements "are
undetermined at this time."
Potential funding would be iden-
tified after the city comes up with
a comprehensive plan for improve-
ments, he said. Czymbor also
noted that the city would have to
get state authorization before land-
scaping state park property.

Holloway added that the county
commission is working on its own
website, which will also feature
access to meeting webcasts as well
as other information on county gov-

Relay raises $40,000 and counting
West Nassau Correspondent
The West Nassau High School
athletic field was once again trans-
formed into a campground for the
American Cancer Society's Relay
for Life of West Nassau County
last Friday and Saturday. So far
$40,000 was raised, and organizers
are still counting.
That's $40,000 more to go
towards supporting research, edu-
cation, advocacy and services that
allow the American Cancer
Society to offer help and hope to
people across the country when
they need it most.
The 2008 Relay for Life of West
Nassau County was dedicated to
two recent victims of cancer.
Former West Nassau High School
health occupations teacher
Carolyn Faris, who facilitated the
first Relays for Life in West Nassau
County, lost her fight against can-
cer on Jan. 13. And Callahan's own

Stephens, lost his valiant three-
year fight against cancer on April

He said he was encouraged to

he sees that as a good sign for
more community involvement.

Diner recalls Happy Days
RYAN SMIT 1
Those hungry for a bit of nos-
talgia can head to the 1)oo Wop
Diner, 463179 State Road 200,
Yulee, for a taste of the 1950s.
The diner, owned by Lisa
Deringer and her husband,
Charles, opened Dec. 3. Lisa
Deringer said the diner is the latest
in a long line of food-service ven-
"I've always been in the restau-
rant business," she said. "I owned

The diner's d6cor reflects its
1950s theme: the walls are adorned
with 45-rpm records, customers
can sit in booths shaped like the
tail ends of '57 Chevy Bel Aires,
and flat-screen TVs play '50s-
Deringer said she picked the
restaurant's theme for a reason.
"It's way before my time, but
I've always loved the time, the
music, the movies," she said. "On
all my screens, I show '50s TV
shows like 'I Love Lucy' or 'Happy
Deringer said she also liked the
atmosphere of an old-fashioned
diner particularly the tradition of
being open for all three meals.
"I love breakfast, and nobody
does breakfast anymore," she said.
"We open at 6 a.m. every day" and
serve breakfast all day.
Deringer's employees also enjoy,
the diner's atmosphere. Rhonda
Hancock, a cook at the diner, said
she has served, cooked and man-
aged in other restaurants, but she's
never enjoyed a job more than her
"I love it; it's the best job I've.
ever had," Hancock said.
"(Deringer) is an awesome boss."
Deringer said her customers
seem to enjoy the diner's theme as
much as she and her employees
"On Friday and Saturday nights,
people push back the tables
because they want to dance," she
said. "That's another reason I love
the '50s to see how it takes older
Saturdays also feature movies,
"Saturday night is what I call
'Dinner and a Movie Night' we
play James Dean movies, 'Grease,'
Elvis movies," she said.
Customers said the diner's
overall quality keeps them coming
"It's a good atmosphere, good
food, a clean restaurant," said Oscar
Davis of Yulee, who comes to the
diner an average of four times a
week. '"The service is excellent."
Ashley Turbeville of Yulee said
he enjoys the restaurant's 1950s
"It's quite comfortable a little
bit of a throwback," he said. 'We

the diner is thriving.
"(Business has slowed) a little

thing people always need, and that's

In fact, Deringer said, the
diner is often crowded with cus-
"It's gotten to where people call
at dinner for reservations because
they don't want to wait; it's proba-

that Deringer is adding a drive-

"We're only open till 8 p.m. now,
but I'm going to start closing at 9,
and on weekends start closing at 11
p.m.," she said. Both the drive-
through and the new hours should
be ready to go in the first week of
April, she added.
Deringer attributes the diner's
success to quality food, good
service and a family-friendly

Clerk backs legislation
A pair of bills in the 2008
Legislative Session, SB 640 and
HB 399, designate the clerk of
the circuit court as the "county
auditor," when not otherwise
designated. Nassau County Clerk
of Court/Comptroller John A.
Crawford said he supports this
legislation because clarification
of the clerk's role as auditor
("i.e., taxpayers' watchdog and
advocate") would allow him to
provide compliance and inde-
pendent oversight of county
spending and revenue practices.
"For the benefit of Nassau
County taxpayers, it is imperative
that the Legislature preserve the
independent 'checks and bal-
ances' fiscal protections provided
by Florida clerks for more than
150 years," Crawford said in a
press release. "I commend our
legislators for clarifying the law
describing the clerks' very
important duty to assure adher-
ence to fiscal laws."

Parents of dead
inmate file suit
The parents of an inmate who
died while incarcerated at the
Nassau County Jail in 2006 have
filed a lawsuit against Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves and three oth-
ers, alleging jail personnel failed
to give the man proper medical
In the lawsuit, filed April 1,
Patricia Conner and Albert Magill
claim their son, Darren Magill,
should have been taken to the
hospital but a nurse on staff at
the jail advised officers to give
Magill some water and let him
"sleep it off."
Magill, 28, reportedly was hav-
ing trouble walking and was
unable to participate in a urine
drug test, so he was catheterized
by a jail nurse. The test results
indicated Magill had metham-
phetamines, PCP, THC and.
cocaine in his system.
"(The defendants) failed to
ensure that necessary medical
care was provided to Mr. Magill,"
the lawsuit states.
Magill was found dead in his
cell on Qct. 4, 2006. An autopsy
later showed his death about 4:30
p.m. was caused by drug intoxi-
Magill had been taken into
custody earlier that day after a
court date in front of then Nassau
County Judge Robert Williams'
on charges of driving with a sus-
pended license and driving under
the influence of alcohol, both mis-
Magill's parents also allege he
was not checked every 15 min-
utes as was required by jail reg-
ulations and that Seagraves failed
to properly train his employees
and also failed to discipline those
involved in Magill's death.
Magill's parents are being rep-
resented by Jacksonville attor-
neys William J. Sheppard, D. Gray
Thomas and Matthew R.
Magill's death was the first
time an inmate had died in the
jail since Randall Shawn Morea,
charged with the hit-and-run
death of a bicyclist, was found
dead in his cell in November
Adreana Bynum, Morea's
mother, settled a lawsuit against
the sheriff's office for $145,000 in
TALLAHASSEE -The Florida
Building Commission has rec-
ommended to the Legislature that
new buildings along Florida's
coast insured by the state-run
Citizens Property Insurance Corp.
be built to stronger standards than
current building codes require.
The recommendations, which
incorporate "Code-Plus" stan-
dards, come in response to the
Legislature's direction for the
commission to examine the hur-
ricane risks to structures built
close to the Florida coast. The
proposed requirements would
apply to structures built within a
half-mile of Florida's coasts begin-
ning next January 1.
The, Legislature last year
dirfctd'the commission, which is
housed within the Department of
Community Affairs, to recom-
mend Code-Plus criteria for
Citizens-insured buildings con-
structed after Jan. 1, 2009, within
2,500 feet of the coast. The com-
mission selected a standard based
on a 500-year event, which can
carry winds approximating the
worst storms on record, such as
Hurricane Andrew. Citizens-
insured coastal buildings would
be built to withstand winds 5 to 25
mph stronger than the code
requires, depending on where the
building is located along the coast
In addition to wind speed, the
recommendations call for build-
ings to be elevated 1 to 6 feet high-
er than current requirements and
to meet the stringent wind-borne
debris protection requirements
for the High Velocity Hurricane
Wind-driven rain damage
occurs to building interiors when
roof coverings are blown off, win-
dows are broken or other parts of
the structure fail. While the dam-
age is not necessarily life-threat-
ening to the occupants, it does
result in costly 1epai snd- Ak '
vations. Estimates from Hurricane
Andrew reflect that water dam-
age was responsible for 60 per-
cent of the insured losses.

Deep blue waters, desert skies
F or years I've wanted to take a road trip
through the American Southwest. A confer-
ence in las Vegas last week finally presented
the opportunity I've dreamed of for years.
My wife and I decided to leave a few days early
and celebrate our 30th anniversary with some spring
skiing in Lake Tahoe. The skiing was great and soak-
ing in one of the resort's many hot tubs with the
snow all around was coolly exotic. But if you've never
seen Lake Tahoe, don't die before you do. If God ever
created anything more incredible, it's been kept
secret from all except maybe a few saints and angels.
It's so deep blue that you could lose yourself in it.
And not even care.
We spent a day making the 70-mile trek around
the lake, starting out with picturesque Tahoe City
and a bite to eat at the charming Rosie's Cafe, where
the interior decor consists mainly of vintage 1950s
and 1960s Schwinn bicycles. A waitress noticed our
distinctly non-Californian accents and hustled over to
greet us. Turns out she'd recently relocated .from Ft.
Lauderdale and was happy to see fellow Floridians.
We decamped Tahoe City and headed north,
going clockwise around the lake. We learned that
driving clockwise around Lake Tahoe presents better
opportunities for stopping at the many vistas and sce-
nic overlooks. Of which there are a blue million no
pun intended. The most spectacular of these was
Emerald Bay on the southwestern shore. From a van-
tage point of just over a mile up, we feasted our eyes
on a landscape that probably eluded the most talent-
ed American Wilderness artists of the Hudson River
. School of Painting.
Our trip to Lake Tahoe complete, we gassed up
the rental car and headed
down through Northern
California, skirting the Sierra
Nevada range. We trekked
south along scenic route US
395, passing through and by
little towns with names like
Walker, Bodie, Lee Vining,
Mammoth Lakes, Tom's Place
and Bishop. We stopped in the
village of Mammoth Lakes for
some shopping and sightsee-
Joe Palmer ing and some lunch and were
treated to a rare thing for
Floridians an afternoon snow
CUP OF shower while the sun was
We stopped off in the little
town of Bishop and bought shepherd's bread and
buckwheat honey at Erick Schat's authentic Dutch
bakery, where people from all over go to buy and
taste the goodies baked on site.
We drove beside mountain streams so icy they'd
almost freeze your fingers to touch them as they
rushed, roared and whispered around boulders as
big as houses and over beds of gravel as fine as
lentils. We passed through Inyo National Forest and
skirted the majestic and nearly three miles high Mt.
Whitney outside the town of Lone Pine, where we
veered off US 395 and onto California Highway 136.
It's here where Mother Nature pulls a bit of
sleight of hand. Facing south on US 395 and on the
right are the still wintry and snow-covered expanses
of the big boys of the Sierras Mt. Whitney, Mt.
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Fox in the hen house
Upon reading the headline in the News-Leader,
"Developer named to planning board" (April 11), all I
could think of was the old saying I have heard all my
life, "There's a fox in the hen house."
Most people are aware that developers have had a
big rubber stamp for the past 25 years. This will only
make it bigger. Hopefully the voters will remember this
and make an extra effort to get out and vote in the
Some county officials have had a definite conflict of
interest with developers for at least the last 10 years.
Same old, same old. Some things never change.
On April 2 about 5 p.m. at Lofton Creek
Campground, a little dog named Dolly got away from
her owner and commenced to running down A1A
dodging traffic. People were trying to stop and help but
this kind lady an Angel by the name of Angie came
to the rescue. She had two dogs of her own in her car
and they escaped when she opened her car door, but
she saved Dolly and her two dogs. She scraped both
of her hands saving all three dogs what a real hero.
We just wanted to thank all of the people that tried
to help, especially Angie. Thank you again.
Times are tough.. Increasingly, Floridians around
our state are beginning to feel the stress and strain of
tighter and leaner budgets. Food, gas and the essen-
tials of life are costing more at the same moment that
less money is coming in. Just as this financial crunch
affects each of our families, so too does it affect the
lives, hopes and needs of our community's most vul-
nerable citizens: our foster children.
Through no fault of their own, these children
already face some of the harshest obstacles in life
from broken homes to a youth marred by abuse and
neglect Over the past several years, under the lead-
ership of the past two governors, our community has
taken an active and innovative approach to helping fos-
ter children overcome these obstacles and succeed in
ways previously thought impossible. At Family Support
Services of North Florida, we have made it our mission
to provide comprehensive, accountable and responsible
care to foster children and their families. And with your
help and the help of the North Florida community, we
have been extremely successful.
But now there is a new threat. Recently the Florida
Legislature has proposed a series of overly drastic
cuts as part of a $4.5 billion slash in state funding
that, if enacted, will threaten much of the progress, suc-
cess and hard work of the past decade. As Bob
Butterworth, secretary of the Department of Children
and Families, recently noted, some of these cuts will

make it exceedingly more difficult, if not impossible,
for some of the most high-risk foster kids to find lov-
ing, permanent homes.
It is important to remember that foster care is not
a partisan issue. This is not about Republicans or
Democrats, political parties or elections. It is about pro-

Even in the toughest of times we are judged by how
well we treat and care for the most vulnerable among
us. Consider contacting your local Florida represen-
tative to let them know this continues to be true today.

Take your Vitamin C
It seems Lindsay Davenport, a true favorite among
Amelia Island's tennis fans, was forced to withdraw
from Saturday's semifinal match with Maria Sharapova
due to nothing more than a common cold, which she
says she caught from her little son, Jagger.
Had Lindsay consulted with any of the thousands
of nutritionists across the USA, and beyond, their
advice would have been simple: large doses of Vitamin
C at her first sign of a sniffle.
For example: Irwin Stone (The Healing Factor:
Vitamin CAgainst Disease) would have given Lindsay
the followingadvicet "At the first hint that you are get-
ting a cold,'beginitafuing Vitamin.C in 1,000 milligr'am
(mg) capsules. The first hint may be a runny nose, a
tickle in the throat or a chill.
"Take the C at this rate: 1,000 to 2,000 mgs imme-
diately. After 20 minutes, take the same amount; after
another 20 minutes, take the same amount. Continue
taking 1,000 to 2,000 mgs every hour or two contin-
ue through the night, if needed.
"Maintain this amount for two or three days. Then
continue taking Vitamin C on a regular basis at bowel
Stone explains bowel tolerance: "Large amounts of
Vitamin C may result in intestinal gas or diarrhea,
because the body's cells are becoming saturated and
the C is spilling over into the intestines. When this
occurs, cut back until the gas and diarrhea ceases.
This is called bowel tolerance."
Irwin Stone lists dozens of other diseases which
Vitamin C heals, i.e., strep and staph infections, blad-
der infections, ruptured blood vessels as in heart
attacks and strokes, measles, pancreatitis, certain types
of cancer (including cervical, lung and bladder), pneu-
monia. And the list goes on.
Linus Pauling, Nobel Prize winner for his work on
Vitamin C (How to Live Longer and Feel Better) says,
"If you're on my suggested dose of 6,000 to 18,000 a day
and develop a cold, you aren't taking enough Vitamin

Driving down Chester at 9:30 on a Wednesday
morning I experienced something that I have never
even thought that I would have to. I was going the
speed limit, I had a maroon SUV behind me and there
was another car behind him. There was a white sports
car coming the other direction. All of a sudden a sher-
iff's car came around all of us going at least 70-80
miles an hour and I am being generous, because I
believe it was much faster. The sheriff's car barely
made it around us with the other car coming.
After he cleared us another sheriff's car was upon
us just like the first. Between our road and Blackrock,
kids, people on motorcycles and numerous animals
have been killed due to driving like this. Was there time
to hear their sirens? No way! About 10 minutes later
I stumble upon what they almost took me and my car
out for, a car accident with victims hurt. I understand
responding to an accident, but I do not believe common
sense was used on Chester.
If they were going that fast on the interstate or SR
200 (and that is kinda iffy) I might be able to unde-
stand it. am untdie the understanding that the she-
iff's office has a blue light code, which is they can get
to a scene as fast as they can drive, with no conse-
quences, no matter if the public feels threatened by
their driving. I just don't understand. Am I.supposed
to just sit back and feel submissive by their rules of the
I am a 22-year emergency response Air Force vet-
eran, and never in my life have I ever thought a emer-
gency response vehicle would scare me. A few months
ago I witnessed when a fire truck ran into a car in front
of Lowe's in Yulee. With common sense and due dili-
gence that accident could have been prevented by
the fire truck. Due to the accident did the fire truck
make it to the accident? Nope! Should he have of
made it? Yup!
Hmm. The question would be why we didn't get out
of the way, well, simple, you have to see and hear
them first, which did not happen. Oh, by the way, at that
time I was not on a cell phone, my. radio was off, I was
not putting on makeup, eating or doing anything else
that would make me a bad driver. I am very upset
and still shaking. I just don't get it; the sheriff's office
is supposed to be here for us, but our safety or our
options when we feel our safety was violated by their
driving is not important I have never reported anybody
before or written an opinion letter, but I guess there
is always a first time.
VIEWPOINT/DoRAN DONOVAN/AMELIA ISLAND
GNATS swarm A1A traffic issues
GNATS (Greater Nassau .Association for Traffic
Safety) is a non-profit organization (paperwork in
process) that has been established to insure that the
Nassau County Commissioners follow the state-man-
dated rules for roadways such as AlA. As many of
you have seen in the media, there has been and con-
tinues to be a great deal of controversy about the
traffic situation on AIA between 1-95 and the Shave
Bridge, especially the Chester Road/Shave Bridge
A1A between 1-95 and the Shave Bridge is design-
ed to carry 37,500 average daily trips'(ADTs), based
on Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)
information that was developed in the 1990s. During
February/March of this year, the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) updated the
actual traffic count on AlA and it appears there are
45,000 ADTs on the road between US 17 and the
bridge instead of the 37,500 earlier reported. The
road is already above its designed capacity.
In March 2008, the county commissioners
approved phase 1 of the Sleiman Nassau Center on
Chester Road and AIA. This will add more than
14,000 average daily trips (ADTs) to the Chester
Road/AIA intersection. An additional 2,840 ADTs
will be added when the approved Marsh Lake strip
mall is completed, which will bring the total for these
two projects alone to nearly 17,000 ADTs. There are
another 3,000 or so trips to be added by the strip
mall being built at Miner Road and A1A and another
10,000 (estimated) trips to be added by the expan-
sion of the Yulee Tradeplex on AIA. This will bring
the total ADTs for the 1-95/Shave Bridge roadway to
75,000 ADTs, which is substantially above the 45,000
This is double the 37,500 designed carrying
capacity of the road. Even if and when A1A is
widened to six lanes, it will only bring capacity to
56,000 ADTs, so the highway will still be at failure.
And these numbers do not include additional proj-
ects that are in the pipeline for the 1-95/Shave
Bridge A1A section.
Jeffrey W. Buckholz, P.E., of Buckholz Traffic
Engineers of Jacksonville, a traffic engineer and an
expert witness who has been working on concurren-
cy cases since 1991, testified to the commissioners at
the meeting where the Sleiman proposal at Chester
Road/AIAwas approved. He stated, "The approval of
projects that add significant traffic to failing sections
of A1A is the worst violation of state concurrency
laws that I have seen in 17 years and the more than
20 concurrency cases in which I have been
County Attorney David Hallman told commission-
ers at a January 2008 meeting that the 1999 concur-
rency ordinance's exemption section had been inter-
preted "poorly" but the commission had to follow
this "poor" interpretation because that's the way it
has been done in the past. The Marsh Lakes, Nassau
Center, Tradeplex and other projects are being
approved based on this "poor" interpretation.
In the very similar Baymeadows case in Duval
County, the county attorney told the Jacksonville
City Council that even though it was wrong, it must
be approved, because it's the way it had been done
for years and that precedent had to be followed. The
Jacksonville mayor at the time vetoed the approval of
the development, the developer sued the city and a
judge ruled in favor of the mayor saying that no mat-
ter how many times one violates the law, it's still a
violation. The development did not move forward.
What can you do?
If you feel that development on A1A should be
curtailed until the r6ad capacity is fixed and that the
current situation is potentially a danger not only to
you but to others, GNATS (Greater Nassau
Association for Traffic Safety) is being established as
a non-profit organization. It has hired an attorney,
Deborah J. Andrews of Ponte Vedra, to represent it
Deborah comes highly recommended by a num-
ber of Sierra Club members, including a top lawyer
from the Orlando area.-Her retainer is $2,000 and
her hourly rate is $125. She was involved with the
case described above. The traffic engineer, Mr.
Buckholz, will be retained when needed. As of mid-
April, 60 people have pledged nearly $6,000 to file
the necessary lawsuits. (A suit against the commis-
sioners has been filed.) If we can get 300 interested
citizens to give $50 or more, we will have the funds
required to be successful. When one considers the
quality of life issues, safety and the value of their
homes, which will be affected by all the traffic over-
crowding, this is a modest investment.

Pinchot, Split Mountain and North Palisade. On the
left and facing east toward Highway 136 is the stark,
yet hauntingly beautiful Death Valley National Park.
Bleak doesn't even begin to describe Death Valley.
You have to wonder what madness prompted the first
settlers to think they could make it across alive. But
its surreal magnificence draws you in. Gray, black
and red rock formations and mesas almost as old as
the planet rule the park like kings over a dusty gray,
yellow and reddish moonscape of land splashed with
lightning brilliant flashes of color that seem out of
place in such a sterile setting: Fragrant purple sage.
Yucca with blossoms as white as wedding gowns.
Clusters of tiny yellow daisies, dandelions and bloody
red Indian Paintbrush flourish in the hardscrabble
terrain until they perish in the furnace like tempera-
tures of the valley, where only the hardiest survive.
To my wife's dismay, I couldn't resist stopping and
taking pictures where the land dropped away thou-
sands of feet just beyond the passenger side door.
Most impressive was Father Crowley Point, which
offers dizzying and panoramic views of the northern
end of the Panamint Valley and the Panamint
Mountains of Death Valley National Park.
With a pastel sunset behind us, we drove through
Keeler, Panamint Springs, Stove Pipe Wells and 200
feet below sea level toward Furnace Creek, finally
crossing into Nevada just the other side of Death
Valley Junction. The night desert sky was so dark
you could almost look up and see heaven. I think
maybe we did.

Bennett continues world travels with May trip to Israel
What a joy it is to meet someone who is full of
enthusiasm for what they are doing and what they
are doing is making a difference and, especially, for
Rose Bennett always has a smile on her face and
a passion for what she does. She has managed to
combine the two things she loves and make it
work. Her loves? Her special education students
Bennett has taught special education students in
Iowa, Missouri, Puerto Rico, Washington, D.C., and
Virginia. After moving to Amelia Island from Iowa,
she taught one year at Fernandina Beach Middle
School and 12 years at Emma Love.
After a dream trip to Kenya, Bennett came back
and shared her experiences with her classroom.
Her students created a Masai village, learned some
Swahili words and shared their project with the rest
of the school.
Later, after a trip to Costa Rica, she helped her
students create a cave like the ones she had
explored on her trip. The
windows were darkened and
the desks became tunnels.
Bennett is following in
her 87-year-old mother's foot-
steps. A housemother for a
fraternity during the school
year, her mother spent her
free time traveling the world.
As a girl, Bennett spent 77
days backpacking and stay-
ing in hostels in Europe.
Two summers ago her
wanderlust took her to Estes
Park, Colo., where she
worked at the YMCA
Conference Center. Last
summer she worked at the
YMCA Blue Ridge Center in
Black Mountain, N.C.
It was there that she learned about a cultural
exchange program started in the early 1970s.
A group of students from the Tokyo, Japan,
YMCA came to work and learn about the Western
way of life. In the 1980s, Blue Ridge began to spon-
sor American college students as ambassadors to
other countries. The program is open to students
and to staff members. Relationships were estab-
lished with Japan, England, Russia, Sri Lanka,
Sweden, Brazil, Belize and Israel.
Bennett loves to travel and has been to Kenya,
Costa Rica, the Caribbean, South America, Eur6pe
and around the U.S. and was ready for another
adventure. When she found out she was eligible,
she was quick to fill out an application.
Her interest was Israel. Bennett applied for the
program and in her application expressed her rea-
sons, "I believe Israel is the most important histori-
cal and religious area of the world, but even more
importantly, as a Christian, I would be humbled to
be able to walk the land and experience the places
where Jesus lived, taught and died."
Bennett leaves May 1 and, after a nine-day guid-
ed tour of the country, she will work in the
Jerusalem Y's preschool for two weeks. She will
teach the children some English words and songs.
The Jerusalem Y (www.jerusalemymca.org) was
nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for its
work in bringing the different religions and cul-
tures that live in Jerusalem together.
As part of the ambassador program she will
carry hometown items to offer as gifts to the staff
and children in Jerusalem.
Bennett shared, "The community has been so
generous. I want to thank Memorial United
Methodist Church, the Palace Saloon, the Ship's
Lantern, Fantastic Fudge, Go Fish and the YMCA.
Books have been donated by local authors."
If you would like to send a little of Amelia with
Bennett contact her at 491-3758.

I'roudly .'upurlinrtilg Our Community
Two men owned homes on rocky property. Although the
boulders that covered the yards were beautiful and made
a sturdy foundation, it was impossible to grow grass on the
property. The first man studied the rocks and found plants
that would grow among them. He worked to carve faces in
the hard stone. The. second man laughed and said, "Plants
do not grow in rock and this stone is too hard to carve.
You are wasting your time. I will dig up the rocks and find
the good soil to plant my grass."
Spring arrived and the first man had colorful blossoms
sprouting among smiling faces carved in the boulders.
Everyone stopped to see the happy rock garden. The
second man however, had a hole so deep the bottom
was impossible to see. In our lives, we may feel the
"rocks" are unmovable. This may be the case, but God
has given each of us useful gifts to battle these times.
A little "creative problem solving" may save us from a
broken back and wasted time.

Auctions quick cash for sellers,
potential bargains for buyers,
Auctions take place in
all economic cycles,
but the current down-
turn has builders,
developers and individual home-
owners turning to this method as
a way to raise cash, cut losses or
If you're looking for a real
estate deal, an auction is the
place to find motivated sellers.
Some properties can be had for
40 to 60 percent below their pre-
vious sales prices. That brings
the cost of homeownership
within reach of many who had
been priced out of the market.
Auctions can happen in one
day. For sellers, that can cut
down on marketing costs associ-
ated with typical real estate
There are traditional auc-
tions, complete with auctioneers
and bidders onsite, as well as
virtual auctions that take place
online. There's even an associa-
tion the National Auctioneers
Association with a branch ded-
icated to real estate auctions
The fast-paced process elimi-
nates haggling over details for
buyers and sellers. Bidding
takes place in the open, where
participants hold up bidding
cards and call out the price they
want to pay. Closings are quick,
some within 21 days of making
the winning bid.
If the auction appeals to you
- as a buyer or a seller consid-
er what's involved.
Hiring an auction compa-
ny: If you're selling a home,
look for a
izes in real
andall fees and
will let you review auction con-
tracts beforehand and allow you
to consult with your legal advi-
sor. Also, ask for references -
and call them.
Reserve amount: If you're
buying, ask if there's a "reserve
amount" or minimum bid. That
permits the owner to refuse the
bid if it is less than the reserve,
which is sometimes undis-
closed. The opposite of a
reserve auction is an "absolute"
auction, where the highest bid
wins, regardless of the amount.
See the property:
Depending on the auction,
potential buyers may be allowed
to view the subject property
before the bidding begins. The
time frame may be a few days or
a few hours before the start of
the auction. Check for details
with the auction company. Some
allow for a contingency inspec-
tion after bidding ends. Expect
that property owned by a bank
likely will need work. Some are
owned by would-be "flippers"
and, for whatever reason, didn't
finish the work.
Get mortgage pre-
approval: It's best to work out
your financing before arriving at
the auction. If you don't pay the
balance due by the closing date
- even if it's because you could-
n't secure financing you may
be hit with substantial financial
Payment structure, con-
tract review: For real estate,
some auctions require a
cashier's check of $5,000 to
$10,000 as a deposit. Some auc-
tion houses will charge a
"buyer premium" of 5 to 10 per-
cent, so ask. Find out if there is
a review period. Some allow
three days. If there's no review
period and you get cold feet and
back out, you may be liable for
up to 25 percent of the cost of
the house plus you'll lose your

FRIDAY, APRIL 18,2008/News-Leader
Topics both funny and serious at public speaking contest
West Nassau Correspondent
Nassau County 4-H presented
its Annual Tropicana Public
Speaking Contest April 8 at the
Multi-Purpose Building north of
4-H Program Director Amanda
Thien said 22 out of 2,035 students
qualified for annual county contest.
First they had to win a classroom
contest and then a school-wide com-
petition to qualify, resulting in 22
students after the process of elimi-
nation, said Thien. The youngsters
benefit by learning to be not only
better writers, but also better com-
municators, she said.
The students represented nine
public and private schools in Nassau
County: Callahan Intermediate,
Emma Love Hardee, Amelia Island
Montessori, Hilliard Elementary,
St Michael's Academy, Bryceville
Elementary and Fernandina Beach,
Yulee and Callahan middle schools.
Some students used humor and
very lighthearted topics, while oth-
ers researched and stuck to seri-
ous, factual topics.
While using score sheets to
score other qualities, judges also
watched for facial expressions, hand
motions and how well the speakers
captured the attention of the audi-
ence, said Thien.
The three judges who had the
difficult task of choosing the win-
ners were Hilliard Mayor David
Buchanan, Callahan Council mem-

ON THE WATER WITH
Will Minor, right, is in his second year as head baseball coach at Yulee High School. This season, one of his
assistant coaches is his father, Bill, center, who moved up from Palm Beach to join Minor's staff. Bill brought
with him his 15-year-old son and Will's brother, Andrew, left, who made the varsity team as a freshman.
All in the family in Yulee
When Will Minor got the head coach-
ing position at Yulee High School, he
started pursing an assistant he new very
well. His former coach. His dad.
Although Will is in his second year,
it.wasn't until this season that his father,
Bill, decided to head north from Palm
Beach to help his son build the Hornet
Bill is in his 38th year of coaching
baseball and coached Will, 33, through
"He was tough on me," Will said. "I
lirned a lot of things I teach these guys
now about discipline, about doing the
But it was Dad who convinced Will to
"He knew the criticism I would prob-
ably take as a coach," Will said. "f don't
think he necessarily wanted me to go
that route because he knew the down-
side of being a coach is the criticism
and being called a jerk.
"But I knew I loved the game."
It seems the whole family does. Will's
little brother, Andrew, 15, also made the
move from Palm Beach with his parents
and earned a varsity spot as a freshman.
Now he's playing for his brother and
"It's tough," Andrew said. "Playing
as a freshman on varsity is tough any-
way, especially when your brother and
father are the coaches. Everyone is
focused on you.
"I've been taught all my life to push
through it. Work your butt off and play
through it. If you come out and work
hard, no one can say anything."
Making the varsity squad wasn't a
sure thing for Andrew. He had to try
out just like everyone else on the team.
"I told him he was going to have to do
what it takes to be a starting player,"
Will said. "He did that.
"He definitely doesn't get any free
rides around here. He knows he's got to
put in the time. The good thing is he's
got a good work ethic. I haven't really
had to discipline him a whole lot because
he does the right thing. It makes my
job easier but it doesn't mean he does-
n't get criticized.
"I knew there would be so much
pressure on him. The criticism and the
scrutiny. But I told him, 'If you ever want
to be a big-time college player or possi-
bly a pro player, it's never going to go
away. You might as well get used to it
"Being coached by family all your
life, you never get used to the pressure,"
Andrew said. "I try not to get away with
anything because it never works.
"My brother's the head coach. You
have to do what the head coach says."
There is an 18-year age difference
between the brothers. Will's mother
died when he was just 13 and his father
later remarried. When Will was a senior
in high school, he had a new baby broth-

The Pirates improved to 15-9 with Monday's 8-3,
win over Camden County.
"We had a better night at the plate with 13 hits,"
said Ken Roland, Fernandina Beach High School
head baseball coach. "Our lineup was far more pro-
ductive than it has been.
"We are still looking for better execution on
defense. Our challenge is to make all of the routine
plays and give opponents only three outs per inning
instead of giving up easy-out opportunities."
Camden struck first,; scoring a run in the top of the
second. But the Pirates answered with a run in the bot-
tom of the inning. Jeff Day and Trent Luman singled
to get on base and Justin Day singled in the lone
Camden scored two more runs in the top of the

but Womble was out at home. Jeff Day singled in
Martin for the lone run of the inning. The Pirates
The Pirates held Camden scoreless while they
tacked on two runs in the fourth, one in the fifth and
three more in the sixth.
Harrison Yonn had a trio of hits and knocked in a
run for the Pirates. Luman also had three hits along
with two RBIs. Womble, Martin and Jeff Day had
two hits apiece.
Justin Day (5-0) got the win on the mound. He went
five innings, giving up four hits and three runs, one
earned, walking one and striking out six. Cameron
Rose recorded the save. He gave up one hit, walked
one and struck out one in two innings of work.
"Our pitching has not been as sharp as it was mid-
season," Roland said. "I am concerned about our
pitch counts. Our pitching staff has been running up
their pitch counts as of late and we want to hit our
spots a little better."
The Pirates host the District 4-3A tournament

left-hander as a two-year-old," Bill

with the big guys. Will was a very
"Andrew has a great swing and
has the size."
Andrew is 6-foot-2 and 205
pounds. He plays first, second and
third base and has even pitched.
"I wanted Andrew to be able to
play for Will because I think Will is
one of the best coaches in Florida,"
Bill said. "He makes great deci-
sions. Physically a lot of baseball
teams are equal. The coaching
decisions you make determine
what happens on the field.
"When he played for me, he was
like a coach. When he was in the
infield, he could go talk to the
pitcher so I didn't have to come
out and talk to him."
As far as the Minors are con-
cerned, there'hasn't been too much
adjusting. Will adopted his father's
system and Andrew grew up with
"Andrew learned the system
Will uses a long time ago," Bill said.
"He can just refine what hQ needs
to. That helps a lot.
"If everyone works together,
you have a good-running machine.
I believe we have that (at Yulee).
The program is doing very well for
'two years old."
Bill said he had more in mind
than just baseball when he decided
to move his family to Nassau
County. He has-two children and
four grandchildren living in Ra-
leigh, N.C. He's now closer to them
and Will and his family, which also
includes a small son.
"They decided to move up and
help me coach and help build the

get Andrew as a player. It was win-

Bill is happy with the move-also.

Drum fishermen still chasing Barber
fter a cold beginning this week and extremely
1 slow fishing action, look for this weekend to
~ really heat up with a variety of both fresh and
.-. ... saltwater fish action.
Black drum fishermen will be out on the water
attempting to beat Jason Barber's 79.8-pound black
drum. Barber is the current leader in the annual
Nassau Sport Fishing Association's Drum Tournament.
The popular local fishing tournament will end Sunday.
Local drum fishing expert Forest Evatt landed a
massive black drum on April 25, 1971. The drum was so
big, it bottomed out the local meat scales that would
only read up to 85 pounds.
Black drum are moving into the
rivers and bays, while there are
still a good number of black drum
at Main Beach. This popular fish-
ing hole is located just off the east
end of Fernandina Beach's Atlantic
Avenue, where water depths range
from 10-15 feet.
Blue water fishermen this
weekend should find both calm
seas and excellent fishing action

best day for making that long 70-
ON THIE mile boat ride to the continental
WATER shelf, where water depths drop off
sharply from 180-1,000 feet in less
than a mile. Winds will be from the southwest at 5-10
knots with air temperatures approaching 80 degrees,
and there is less than a 10 percent chance of rain. The
only downside is fuel prices are ranging from $3.30-4
Bottom fishermen are still catching keeper-size red
snapper at FA, Schultz's Fish Market and Haddock's
Hideaway fish havens. Fresh local squid and live cigar
minnows are the baits of choice.
Be sure to bring your favorite cobia lures. Cobia
weighing to over 70 pounds should show up any day
now at the St. Marys shipping channel, St Marys jetty
rocks and offshore wrecks and big ledges. Late April
and the entire month of May are also big trout months,
particularly for those backwater fishermen who enjoy
teasing a 5- to 8-pound speck up to a surface lure.
The best tide for both topwater fishing for redfish
and sea trout will come during the flood tide, which
arrives at 8:02 a.m. at Cumberland Sound. Low tide
should find redfish schooling on the mud flats and deep
edges of the Intracoastal Waterway. Flounder fishing
should be good as well during low tide at creek
mouths, the deep ends of boat docks and jetty rocks.
Low tide arrives at 1:57 p.m. Saturday.

When was the last time you really lis-

you're lucky if they're at all intelligible over
the sound of the instrumentals. Songwriting
is an art form that gets very little atten-

big-name performers that we recognize
depend on songwriters to supply them with
Steve Seskin is one of those songwriters
that artists like Tim McGraw, Kenny
Chesney, Peter, Paul and Mary, Colin Raye,
and John Michael Montgomery have come
to depend on, since he's written songs that
they've turned into No. 1 hits. Over the
past 30-plus years, Seskin has written hun-
dreds of songs, like "I
Think About You,"
"Life's a Dance," "Grown
Men Don't Cry" and
"Don't Laugh at Me."
He's not only a prolific
songwriter, but an inspir-

voice that is by turns both angelic
and strong. Davron S. Monroe is
Judas, and has been hailed in the
press as "one of the most brilliant
performers in musical theater and
In the hands of Tim Rice and
Lloyd Webber, and indeed Monroe,
Judas is an overly earnest and sym-
pathetic character who realizes too
late the errors of his thinking. He
just wants to keep Jesus focused on
their charitable mission and off the
radar of the authorities, but comes
unglued by talk that his friend, a
mere man, is really the son of God.
When Jesus cures the lepers (in a
scene of masterful costuming by
The Costume Crew and lighting by
John Renaud) and whispers of his
true provenance grow louder, Judas
panics. The spotlight is shining too
bright on their mission, and he fears
Jesus' growing popularity will derail
After he betrays his friend with a
kiss in the Garden of Gethsemane
and the Jewish high priest Caiaphas
tells him, "You'll be remembered for-
ever for this," a distraught Judas
responds, "I shall be dragged
through the slime and the mud. I am
sick I have been used. Oh God,
you knew all the time."
And therein lies the question
long debated by religious scholars:
Did Judas exist only to betray Christ
and fulfill a prophecy? If so, he really
is a tragic figure.
A rock opera that was greeted
with protests by some religious
groups and even banned in South
Africa as "irreligious" when it
debuted in the early '70s, first as an
album and then on Broadway, "Jesus
Christ Superstar" has come to be
more widely accepted in the ensuing
years and on Saturday, many
church-goers enjoyed fellowship and
the show at Alhambra.
And what a show. After all, where
but the Bible do you get such rich
and varied characters? Lee Hamby,
for example, plays King Herod as a
force of nature, storming the stage
in Vaudeville-like glory with lines
like, "Come on, King of the Jews!
Prove to me you are no fool, walk
across my swimming pool."
Irreligious? Yes, but the character,
not the play.
From there it is a slow, sad
descent as Jesus is taunted, flogged
and, finally, crucified. It is painful,
heavy stuff, but the final number,
"John Nineteen: Forty-One," named
for the Bible passage, reminds us
that in the story of Jesus, this end is
really just the beginning.
