Audit: 'Lax oversight at Animal Control

A long-awaited audit of Nassau
CountyAnimal Control has found it
lacked proper oversight of most
every function -from revenues and
drug control to recordkeeping and
personnel- in the four years it was
under the management of Brenda
The audit released Thursday by

Nov. 26 and lasted about 10 days.
According to the audit, Rothwell
'produced the missing euthanasia
logs and "other original records"
on March 19, saying she did not
know the Clerk of Court wanted
The audit does not addre .s why
Rothwell had the records months
after being dismissed as animal con-,
trol director on Oct. 31, but does
recommend such records should

be securely kept on site.
A sworn statement by Animal
Control Officer Patsy Bryant,
included in the audit, said, "Brenda
replaced the '06 and '07 euthana-
sia log book on Oct. 1, 2007. Brenda
removed the log book on several
occasions during 2007 and would
state that she took the book home
to work on it."

City may aid

The local commercial shrimp industry may get
some help from the city with several ideas proposed
by the Waterfronts Florida Partnership Committee.
The committee met Tuesday to discuss how to
get the city behind the struggling industry and even-
tually agreed on three proposals to bring before the
city commission for approval.
Janie Thomas, executive director of the Shrimp
Producers Association, described to committee mem-
bers just how difficult it has become for local
shrimpers to make a living.
Thomas said that, as an example, a 73-foot shrimp
boat uses 300 gallons of diesel fuel a day and needs to
catch four. 100-pound boxes of shrimp just to pay for
that fuel at today's prices.
One of her suggestions to help cut costs is to move
the city marina boat ramp to provide dock space for
six to eight shrimp boats at a minimal charge, plus a
couple more slips for transient boaters.
A processing plant also is needed, she said, in
order to sell peeled and deveined shrimp to cus-

costs city


It has cost the city from just under $9,000 to more
than $34,000 a year to hold the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival over the past five years. Average cost
- _pcr year for taxpayers was about $19,000.
Data for the shrimp festival costs
were provided by the city. The city's
festival costs include wages for city
workers such as police, parks and
recreation and firefighters, plus food
costs and waste management.
According to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, those costs are
incurred only during the actual fes-
Czymbor tival, which runs Friday through
Sunday the first weekend in May.
The city does not charge the festi-
val for "prep time," which includes wages for 20 to 25
city staff members who attend meetings pertaining to

Risk of wildfires is on the increase


There were no active wildfires in
Nassau County on Thursday, but the risk
is on the i ie with warm, dry conditions.
A chance of rain today could help reduce
that risk, but only temporarily.
Wildfires have burned thousands of
acres, damaged or destroyed dozens of
homes and closed highways in Central
Florida this week, but no serious inci-
dents have been reported locally, accord-
ing to Nassau County Fire Rescue.
The state Division of Forestry report-
ed there were small wildfires in Duval,
Clay and Nassau counties. That included
a three-acre debris fire at Kings Ferry
and Tacoma roads that was brought
under control.
But the major fires were concentrat-
ed in Brevard, Volusia and Glades coun-
ties. More than 100 homes were report-
ed damaged or destroyed in Palm Bay.
Portions of 1-95 and US 1 were closed in,
Brevard and Volusia counties this week.
Statewide, there were more than 100

wildfires burning with more than 34,000
acres consumed as of Thursday.
Five counties have burn bans -
Hendry, Alachua, Flagler, Volusia and
Putnam - but not Nassau County, where
conditions do not yet warrant it but cau-
tion is urged.
According to the state Division of
Forestry, values on the Keetch-Byram
drought index scale are rising locally.
The average KBDI for Nassau, Duval
and Clay counties was 409 on a scale
ranging from 0 (saturated) to 800 (desert-
like conditions). Normal values for
springtime are between 261-460.
The KBDI reported this week for
Nassau County was 386.

The first phase of an Eighth Street resur-

Atlantic Avenue began this week.
According to Mike Goldman, public infor-
mation officer for the Florida Department of
Transportation, the 4.7-mile project is sched-
uled to be completed in 240 days. The sched-
ule allows extra time for weather and other
unexpected delays.
There will be no lane closings between

According to the state forestry divi-
sion, a cold front was predicted to push
across the Panhandle on Thursday, bring-
ing widespread showers and thunder-
storms. The front will weaken as it cross-
es the state so significant rainfall
accumulations are not likely in eastern
and Peninsula areas, according to that
forecast. Drier air will return behind the
front but is not expected to be as dry as
this week. . :,
Wildfire danger will continue to
increase until the state receives signifi-
cant rainfall. As a result, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is
asking people to delay burning yard
waste until conditions improve.
Arson is also a concern. So far this
year, 234 wildfires have been determined
to be arsons. The department has a toll-
free hotline for citizens to report sus-
pected arson or suspicious activities, 1-

Goldman said APAC-Southeast of

will get no bonuses for early completion,

Time is now to teach

INDIANAPOLIS - With infla-
tion on the rise (gas prices, gro-
cery bills, health insurance pre-
miums, etc.), more American
families are feeling squeezed. So
if you're feeling guilty because
you can't buy your child that
video game system he desperate-
ly wants or send him to that
trendy summer camp, Eric Tyson
has one word for you. Don't In
fact, he says, now is the perfect
time to teach your kids some
valuable financial lessons.
"Kids are surprisingly aware
of what's going on in the world,"
says Tyson, author of the new
book Let's Get Real About Money!
Profit from the Habits of the Best
Personal Finance Managers.
"And if they don't know that
times are a little bit tough and
mom and dad are having to watch
their spending, it's time to tell
"In many ways, a slower econ-
omy can be a blessing in dis-
guise," admits Tyson. "It leads
families to make a budget and
stick to it. It forces them to be
conscious about how they handle
money. That's good for kids. It
shows them how the world is
supposed to work."
Tyson offers the following
helpful hints:
* Realize that kids learn what
they live. When you ring up a
barge-load of credit card debt,
take out exorbitant mortgages or
car loans and fail to save any-
thing, that's what your kids come

to see as nor-
mmal. If you
are modeling
- ' financial
habits, you
can't realisti-
cally expect
your kids to "do as I say, not as I
"Be honest with yourself
about the powerful money mes-
sages you're sending your kids. If
your financial habits are poor,
overhaul them now. You owe it to
your kids."
* De-program them. Kids
are constantly bombarded with
information about what things
cost, whether it's the fancy
sports car they like or the
wardrobe of their favorite athlete
or actor, not to mention the
40,000 commercials that the
American Academy of Pediatrics
estimates the average American
child sees each year. What they
aren't bombarded with is knowl-
edge on how to manage money
"In fact, VISA and MasterCard
school-supplied resources
endorse spending upward of 15 to
20 percent of one's monthly take-
home income to pay credit card
and other consumer debts," says
Tyson. "Explain to your kids that
such spending puts a lot of
money directly into the credit
card companies' pockets, so of
course they're going to offer that
advice - but that smart people

A major drug bust earlier this
week could have a significant
impact, at least temporarily, on the
availability of crack cocaine in and
around Fernandina Beach, accord-'
ing to police.
"Operation Fishnet," a nine-
month undercover narcotics inves-
tigation conducted by the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department and the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Agency, resulted in
the arrest of three local men - an
84-year-old man and his two sons -
and others police believe were
involved in a family-operated drug
"We're hoping this brings a very
significant reduction in the flow of
narcotics to Amelia Island.and this
area," Fernandina Beach Police
Chief James Hurley' said Tuesday.
"... Others will eventually step up
and try to take over where these
guys left off.".
Officials believe Joseph "Duck"
Simmons, 84, and his sons,
Christopher T. Brown, 36, and
Benjamin "Boy-Baby" Simmons,
38, were running a drug operation
that trafficked as much as
six to 10 ounces of cocaine a
week, with a street value of any-
where from $6,000 to $18,000 -
"nearly monopolizing our small ille-
gal drug market," according to
Brown, who was one of 19 peo-
ple arrested, has been identified
as the "head of the organization" he
allegedly ran with the help of his
brother and father.
Benjamin Simmons has not
been arrested, but Hurley said
police have spoken with him on
the phone and he would likely be
arrested soon.

Bohman and Hurley held a joint
press conference Tuesday after-
noon. They said more arrests con-
nected to the operation are expect-
Besides Simmons, at least eight
individuals are wanted by police in
connection with the bust, and in a
written statement Hurley said
"numerous additional arrests may
spin off from this-investigation as
detectives continue to talk to those
identified as narcotics users, those
involved in thefts and other crimes
committed to support their drug
habits, and those subjecting young
children to unhealthy and illegal
residential environments."
Although sqme marijuana was
found at one of the homes
searched, police say they believe
the drug ring dealt primarily with
cocaine and crack cocaine.
Hurley thanked the DEA for
assisting the police department
with the investigation and bust.
'"Were it not for the DEA ... we
would have a very difficult time
bringing some of these people to
justice," Hurley said.

Fendig seeks seat on county commission

Wynn Fendig, a member of the
county's Planning & Zoning Board,
has announced that he will seek
the Republican nomination for the
office of Nassau County Commis-
sioner for District 3, which encom-
passes Yulee.
The seat is currently held by
Republican Tom Branan, who has
announced he will seek reelectiop.
Grady Howard Wright has also filed
for the Republican nomination for
the office.
Fendig, 42, was born in
Brunswick, Ga., and grew up on
St. Simons Island with his three
brothers. His family ties to this
region go back to the 1800s, and he
said he is proud that both sets of
grandparents had relatives that
fought in the American Revolution.
He moved to Fernandina Beach
in 1992 where he met and married
his wife, Tracy. The Fendigs have
been active in the community
attending church at Living Waters,
where both have served as youth
leaders for several years. Fendig
also served as a football coach for
the local Pop Warner League and as
a deri leader in Cub Scouts.
In a campaign announcement,
Fendig said, "I am running to make
a difference, and to be part of pos-
itive changes that are needed in
our county. In my opinion, if you see
problems, instead of complaining,
I believe in standing up and making
a difference."


Fendig also
said, "I believe
the next four
years will define
our county, state
and country. We
are facing some
of the most diffi-
cult decisions,
decisions that
will require lead-
ers to be strong

and resolute. In fact, most of the
issues we in this county face are
readily visible as evidenced in the
Vision 2032 plan and all of them
require action."
His business experience spans
from small business partnerships to-
Olarge corporations. In 1986, he
joined his father in the family's com-
puter store business. "This is where
my real education took place, learn-
ing to run a high-tech business in
a small community."
In 1994, Fendig was hired as a
systems analyst for the Gilman
Paper Co, in St. Marys, Ga. He then
transferred to White Oak
Plantation, a subsidiary of Gilman,
where he was instrumental in con-
struction of its technology infra-
structure. There he gained experi-
ence in the operational structure
of a large corporation. Fendig said
he knows how to watch the "bottom
line" in spending and-understands

In that position Fendig began

good Lord and my family."
He added, "Fiscal responsibility
of county government is a high pri-

the crunch in my private life just
like most people and have come to
the conclusion that we must
become good stewards of what we
have been given. It's time to apply
that principle to county govern-
ment and the taxpayer's money by
applying prudent business prac-
tices to county operations."
F,titdif\ term on the Planning
and Zoning Board expired in
December 2007 along .with several
other board members, but he was
reappointed by the commission.
He said, "It has been an honor to
serve the people of this county
through my tenure on the P&Z
board. That experience has allowed
me to see into county government,
and has compelled me to take the
next step. Through hard work, lead-
ership and aggressive forward
thinking, I hope to be an asset on
the commission. Let's hope the vot-
ers will agree."

Thomas also suggested that
the city could get grants to build
a biodiesel plant. Another of her
suggestions is to build a process-
ing plant to manufacture chitosan,
a product made from crustacean
shells and used as a blood-
clotting agent in army field band-
The federal Magnuson-
Stevens Act, she said, could be
used to declare a disaster in the

"The -city owes it to the
(shrimping) industry to keep it

Area resident Lynn Williams
suggested the city could sell diesel
fuel at the docks to commercial
fishermen at a special rate of,3
cents over cost after they buy
1,000 gallons. He also suggested
a voluntary admission charge for

"I don't think it's fair for the
city to build docks for me," said
David Cook, a member of the
committee who also owns a
shrimp boat. "Don't put ihe bur-
den on the city. You have to help

yourself before you can ask some-
one else to help you."
"If the city is going to put forth
- the effort for something that is
declining, we need to know about
it," said committee member Eric
Bartelt. "Everything I read says
the shrimping industry is declin-
"The key is, how much do we
want to do this," said City
Commissioner Ron Sapp, who
attended the meeting. He added
that the process should start
immediately and the committee
should be very specific about what
it wants.
In the end the committee
agreed to have the city look into
charging commercial fishermen
only 2 cents above cost for fuel
after buying 1,000 gallons at the'
city docks.
Other agreed upon proposals
were for the city to research
grants involving expansion of
dock space for the shrimping
industry through public/private
partnerships, and to have the city
investigate the feasibility of open-
ing two slips at the southern end
of the existing docks on a trial
basis to allow shrimp boats to
unload and sell to the public.
"We just want shrimpers to be
able to stay in business," said
Thomas after the meeting. "Once
you get it in your blood, you're
always a shrimper."

AUDIT Continued from 1A
The logbook records the date
and time of every animal killed at
the shelter, the amounts and types
of drugs used and the employee's
initials. The records are monitored
by the federal Drug Enforcement
Agency because drugs used to kill
animals are controlled substances
that also are sold on the black mar-
ket as so-called "club drugs."
Bryant also said in her state-
ment that while she and Rothwell
were the only ones with keys to
the drug cabinet, "Brenda would
give her keys to ... (Animal Control
Officer) Ryan Cohee." Cohee now
works in the county Code
Enforcement Department, which
Rothwell directs.
The audit noted that the depart-
ment had no policies and proce-
dures manual for employees and
no established guidelines.
This affected everything from
cash and other financial transac-
tions to overtime work, which for-
mer employees said they regular-
ly did without pay, the audit
reported. In particular, internal
controls for cash receipts were
insufficient, with petty cash kept in
an unlocked file cabinet, and a cash
box found to "be generally kept
unlocked." Blank receipts were
also kept in an unlocked cabinet,
and receipts that were issued "were
not formally reconciled to confirm
Such lax oversight led to the
theft of $14,000 on Jan. 11, accord-
ing to the audit; an incident it cited
to support its conclusion that "inad-
eqdate accounting and documen-
tation procedures" continued
under interim director Rhett
For example, it found that
deposits were made only twice a
month instead of more frequent-
ly, leaving more cash and checks
on hand thanwas safe.
As for revenue, the audit found
"there were only 21 citations total-
ing $2,969" filed by the department
in fiscal 2007 and insufficient doc-
umentation to show that other pos-
sible money sources - pet licenses,
impoundment and adoption fees -
were being maximized.
Audit staff also "could find no
records demonstrating that per-
mits were being billed for facilities
regulated by the county" such as
breeders and pet stores.
Those invoices "were done on
the director's computer," according
to Rothwell, but were not invoiced
for the current year prior to Nov. 1,

the day Holden-Dodge took over.
The audit found financial man-
agement in general to be lacking.
For example, an unannounced
petty cash and cash receipts count
found three checks totaling $2,130
were not entered into the cash
receipts book. Conversely, several
large deposits during the audit peri-
od totaling $15,209 had no sup-
porting detail attached - no copies
of checks received or cash receipts.
The audit also found that there
often was no supporting docu-
mentation for cash transactions
(i.e., a copy of a cash receipt) and
that check amounts did not always
match the amounts reported on
"line-item detail" reports.
The audit recommends segre-
gating cash handling and cash
reporting duties, which currently
fall solely to the office manager,
and that cash be securely locked

away during the day and in a fire-
proof safe at night. It also calls for
better oversight of accounting pro-
cedures, including "unannounced"
petty cash and cash drawer counts
to reconcile cash on hand with the
cash books.
The audit did not deal with the
physical aspects of the shelter, such
as conditions and operations, but
did commend the county commis-
sion for already taking steps to
"improve the management and
oversight of the Animal Control
department" by putting it under
the control of Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves, who has hired a new
Clerk of Court John Crawford
offered "any assistance needed to
Sheriff Seagraves in implementing
the necessary internal controls
designed to protect public assets."

Rothwell defends

her management


Brenda Rothwell said staffing
shortages made it impossible to do
a good job as Nassau County Animal
Control director, according to an
audit of the department.
Many of the audit's findings deal
with the poor execution of myriad
financial transactions and proce-
dures, and in her response Rothwell
puts much of the blame for that on
poor oversight of her by county
finance as well as a lack of staff.
"During my tenure we were vis-
ited by Finance once in 2005 and
we tried to follow or set up policies
as suggested," Rothwell wrote in
response to the findings. "The 'daily
sales sheets'were used in the begin-
ning but due to lack of staff it was
impossible to maintain."
She said to her knowledge,
deposits were always balanced,
though the audit team found other-
wise. In her defense, Rothwell said,
"I was never contacted by. Finance
for this to be corrected."
Referring to the audit's repeat
findings of problems first pointed
out during a 2005 review, she said,
"Numerous statements were made
in regard to 'repeat findings.' If these
findings were of concern why was
there no follow-up to ensure all
issues were addressed over the two-
plus years between audits?"
Her response was essentially the
same to criticisms that there was
no supporting documentation for
deposits by Animal Control. "At no

given time did any-
one from the
Finance Depart-
ment call me to
inquire about
backup docu-
ments," Rothwell
wrote, but then
Rothwell went on to detail.
ed procedures,
that the audit says
were never followed.
As for missing euthanization
records the audit reported were
lafer produced by Rothwell, she
wrote, "I would like to state that I
was never called, e-mailed and/or
asked about the euthanasia log book
until the Clerk of Courts office
inquired on March 12, 2008."
However, during that period oth-
ers had made public records
requests for the log book, includ-
ing the News-Leader, and it was pre-
sumed by county staff to be missing.
Because it could not be located,
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves also could
not compile an accurate budget for
the facility as he prepared to take it
over - all of which was prominent-
ly reported by the News-Leader.
Finally, Rothwell wrote, "During
the four-year period I was director
of Code Enforcement and Animal
Control I had attempted to increase
the staff at Animal Control each
year. These requests were not
approved nor funded. I made every
attempt to maintain Animal Control
but without additional staff the
department could not perform its
duties efficiently and effectively."

Cal Atwood is no stranger to hospitals. "I've been in hospitals in Guam,
Istanbul, Hawaii, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, North Carolina
and others, but never been anywhere like Baptist Nassau - professional care and
concern every foot of the way."

To maintain this high level of service, Baptist Nassau recently broke ground on
a brand new building with a larger intensive care unit and comfortable, family-
friendly, all private patient rooms. Opening in 2009, it will provide the same
outstanding care Cal Atwood so appreciates - care that recently earned Baptist

excellence in patient care.

comes my way. What are people
It's a couple thing: a ritual.
The Big Guy knows to check.
Living on an island has taught
us that "resort casual" usually
does it. You can count on seeing
everything when you go out. The
term "resort casual" has always
struck me as funny. Is there a
resort formal? Who comes up
with these terms?
For men it is the question of
the ages. Jacket or no jacket?

I do not have to wear panty hose.

ple; right now I will wear whatev-
er I want.

the weather, Layering is the best
strategy, especially with colder

Good things come in threes

Is there a resort formal?
Who comes up with
these terms?

dress code is much looser, but
potentially more emotional. We
often check to see what the girl
friends are going to wear. Not
sure of an upcoming event, I play
the costume game. Will I be in
black and sultry, or cute and
fresh? Do I wear a hat? I do like
my hats. When in doubt Chicos!
Like every normal warm-
blooded woman, I love a man in a
tux. While most of the time we
enjoy the easy, casual look, there
are events that call for the full
My husband knows some
things are not negotiable, so
when a formal event is on the cal-
endar, there is no discussion.
He'll never admit it, but there is
something magical, and roman-
tic, about the classic black and
white starchiness of a tuxedo.
When the event calls for ele-
gant it usually begs shoes that
are not flip flops or sandals. High
heels are the devil's invention. It
is hard to understand how people
wear shoes with stiletto heels. I
can do it for a short time, a very
shorttime. The pain inflicting
footwear is kicked off quickly at
the first opportunity.
Resort casual? I guess I like
resorting to casual. After all, that
is why we live in Florida.

Mary Clemens called me the
other day with an invitation to a
sneak peak at the three new
homes that she hopes everyone
will visit during the Coastal
Cottage Trio Home Tour on two
weekends this month - the 17th
and 18th, and then again on the
24th and 25th. If you're already
planning to go, you're in for a
real treat; if you haven't put this
event on your calendar, it will be
a happy addition to your sched-
These cottages are in Amelia
Park, so you know that the set-
ting is superb. Joel Embry and
friends got it right all those
years ago when they rescued
this patch of land from its fate as
a trailer park and proceeded to
transform it into a neighborhood
that offers a combination of pri-
vacy and a sense of community.
Every time I visit someone
there, I am impressed with
Amelia Park's interesting mix of
homes, cottages and condomini-
ums that fit a variety of lifestyles.
And I think that the landscaping
is the icing on the cake; the tree-
lined streets offer an invitation
for a stroll, and some thoughtful
person has sprinkled benches
around so we can sit to admire
the resident flora and fauna.
Nestled in the middle of it all,
on Heather Street, are the
coastal cottages that everyone
has been talking about. Mary
and I got a glimpse of the freshly
painted wooden gates that will
provide even more privacy for
this trio of homes. They're
linked by a winding brick walk-
way that's lined with still more
lush vegetation that screens one
cottage from another.
The first cottage you'll see on
the tour belongs to Jody Koford,

her Cats Angels days. That bit of

It will be coming around

O ur oldest son and his fiance called last
night from Hawaii to tell us they were on
their way to get married. Their Hawaiian
wedding/honeymoon is the blissful culmi-
nation of months of breathless planning and dream-
ing. We're all very happy for the newlyweds. My eld-
est and namesake has given my wife and I our first
"daughter." Another will follow in August when our
youngest son and his fiance tie the knot.
The locale wasn't a decision Trey and Leigh
came to easily. They initially planned to marry here
with family and friends present and then honey-
moon in Hawaii. But after what I'm sure was a lot of
soul searching, they surrendered to their hearts'
desire to exchange rings, vows and I do's in a
romantic, private ceremony on a Hawaiian beach. I
know it was a magical and enchanted event and I
can't wait to see the photos they had made.
In truth, the idea took some getting used to for
my wife and me. And perhaps it's impertinent for
me to presume to speak for others, but I've a hunch
Leigh's parents initially endured some of the same
pangs of regret over their little girl getting hitched
thousands of miles away that my wife and I had over
the idea of not being there to witness our firstborn
bring a new face into the family. But it's their big
moment and not ours. Having kids is ultimately
about letting go. It's taken us a bit to do that grace-
fully this first time. Letting go means facing your
own mortality and the inevitability of getting old
and, yes, even dying one day.

But only the grim and
''. those without hope or faith
.' ^see that as the final chapter in
S" the book. Our essence, what
we are, we pass on to our chil-
dren. And in so doing, we do
achieve a small measure of
immortality. If the golden cir-
cle of the wedding band signi-
fies endless love, does it not
also signify the continuity of
ourselves? Doesn't the eter-
Joe Palmer nal circle, shining like the
- ... -. sun, also mean a new day, but
one in which we can take joy
CUP OF in knowing that one life picks

Some years back, singer Carly Simon wrote a
song titled, "Coming around again/Itsy bitsy spi-
der." Our new daughter-in-law's mom called today to
get ideas for songs for the reception and party we're
planning for the kids later this month to celebrate
their marriage. To fill out the playlist, she needed a
mother/son dance song. My wife and I were dis-
cussing possibilities when we remembered how
Trey used to love for his mom to sing "Itsy Bitsy
Spider" to him when he was little. She'd sing it over

d again

and over, using her fingertips to simulate the spider
creeping up the waterspout and the drops of rain
coming down to dislodge him. The finale always
delighted him when she'd raise both arms above
her head in a big circle and sing about the sun com-
ing out and drying the spider off and how he kept
right on climbing.
It's been a few years since we heard Carly
Simon's version of the song. We found it and lis-
tened to it. We had a hard time keeping our eyes
dry. The refrain captures the bittersweet emotions
of letting go and the comforting realization that it's
all part of an endless cycle of life: "I know nothing
stays the same, but if you're willing to play the
game, it will be coming around again."

No, my dear son and brand new daughter, noth-

The circle is unbroken.

Doyour homework
Re: "Dead pelican," May 7.
I know a lot of shrimpers. I also
worked on shrimp boats in my younger
days. We never shot any wildlife nor did
any other shrimpers I knew. I now run
a charter boat out of Fernandina Harbor
Marina. In my experience shrimpers
and fishermen alike go out of their way
to rescue birds, turtles or any other
wildlife not being sought for human con-
sumption. Shrimpers are not "scum."
They are hard- working and caring peo-
ple from all walks of life. The animal
control officer should have done his/her
homework before falsely accusing an
entire industry of such wrongful doings
and misinforming new residents. Having
lived on the east coast of Florida all your
life and not getting to know a family of
shrimpers has surely been a great loss
of yours, as will be not having local
shrimp at your table.

Housing prices
Personally, I would like to see the
price of houses go down another 50 per-

Recently, I was in that old neighbor-
hood and the houses are a little more
worn, and more than $200K The people
who bought them are a mixed lot of nice
people (an amazing number of the peo-
ple I knew are still there), but they view
them mostly as a place to start until they
can trade up. Most ordinary people are
just priced out. Probably most of them
won't be able to trade up.
Young people are being priced out
of the kind of houses we could get It is
just that simple. The more prices go
down, the more our young people can
buy them.

I suppose there are lots of collateral

What makes a liberal

am sure many of you read the column by Tom
Purcell in the May 7 edition of the News-Leader
titled "Conservatives happier than liberals."
Grasping for words, all that comes to mind is
"Puh-leez, what a crock!"
An economics professor writes a book based on
his mining of happiness data back in college. Wow,
that really impresses me. I wonder how he juggled
his study of economics while getting all touchy-
feely with his peers about their happiness.
Maybe he wrote his thesis on it, I am sure that
must have wowed his professors. No doubt he
must have been advising the Bush Administration
on our wonderful economy, because he is so in
touch with the real people who hold more tradition-
al values like faith, marriage, family, freedom and
hard work. He is certainly one we all should listen
to, based upon his wonderfully in-depth analysis of
happiness - or, at least, that is what Mr. Purcell
would like for us lemmings to believe as we go
about our Stepford wives, I mean lives, in 1950's
oblivion and naivety.
What a crock of, well, you fill in the blank, the
editor won't let me (and I don't blame him a bit!).
Being a psychotically depressed liberal, I have to
beg through my tears of despair, "Why am I so
unhappy? I am married, I have a great family, I cer-
tainly enjoy my freedom, as evidenced by my writ-
ing this liberal-whining column in conservative-rich
North Florida, and I work hard (when I am not
curled up in my room with the curtains drawn, sob-

Courage on stage
Tod Booth, owner of Jacksonville's
Alhambra Dinner Theatre (now cele-
brating its 40th anniversary) and pro-
ducer/director of "Jesus Christ Super-
star," now live on stage throughout the
month of May, needs to be commended
for his courage in making a change in jhe
long-running Broadway musical
"I changed the ending." he said i a
brief conversation, following the ener-
gized stellar production and flawless per-
"I had Jesus rise from the dead."
One problem most audiences have
had over the years with 'Superstar' is
that Jesus' death is the end of the musi-
cal, but Tod Booth decided to stand up
for the truth.
The brilliantly gifted Booth stood up
another time in his growing up years.
A student at a Catholic elementary
school, he stood up to his teacher, a nun,
when she insisted his name should have
been-spelled with two D's - Todd.
"Sister," he said with courage beyond
his years, "It's Tod. Like in God. If it's
good enough for God, it's good enough
for me."
That same courage gave Tod the idea
to change the ending of 'Superstar', prob-
ably thinking once again, "If it's good
enough for God, it's good enough for
As St Paul so aptly put it, "If Jsus has
not risen from the dead, all Christianity
would have been in vain."

make sure things are still OK."
"Alright," we replied, feeling
no immediate need to step out
into the dimly lit parking lot With
the local prison right in front of
us, and a mosque full of wor-
shipers filling up to our left, I
couldn't help but think about our
peaceful community back home.
We were in Indonesia and get-
ting ready to go into one of its

prisons. I
have to admit

Shock we
were experi-
encing was
huge. Having
just left a hos-
pital where'
people both
Rob old and
Goyette young alike
ewe were recover-
ing from bul-
pUL IT pr let wounds
NOTES inflicted by
extremist radicals, the atmos-
phere outside was not very wel-
As we stared outside at those

who were assembling, I have to
admit I felt a bit challenged.
Somehow, through all the obvious
differences between them and us,
I found myself no longer looking
through a dark-tinted window but
through the eyes of God. They
were people just like you and me
doing everything they knew to be
faithful to their beliefs.
Suddenly the driver's door
opened and in jumped our friend.
"Looks like we're going to get to
see him," he announced with a bit
of excitement in his voice. "All
you need to do is follow me and
keep smiling," he said. "Most of
the guards don't speak English,
so let me do all the talking."
Like Marine paratroopers
jumping from an airplane, we all

filed out of our comfort zone into
the balmy night air. Our mission
was a simple one. Behind the con-
crete walls and steel bars was a
pastor imprisoned for his faith.
Our job was not to try to get him
out, but to encourage him in the
midst of all his trials.
Much to my surprise, we
found ourselves being encour-
aged by him. It was obvious that
God was with him. Even the jail-
ers and prison guards seemed to
know that there was something
very special about this man. I'm
sure that's why they had let us in.
His gentle spirit and eyes, filled
with the love and forgiveness of
Christ, said it all.
Though taken from his family
and church, and we later learned

falsely accused by a radical minor-
ity, his influence in the lives of
people had only grown. It was
amazing to see how friendly the
guards were toward us as we visit-
ed him. Not only did they smile
back at us as we smiled at them,
but they even let us take pictures
standing beside them before we
The few times I've had the
privilege of traveling abroad and
visiting other cultures that hap-
pen to see life through different
lenses, I've often wondered how
God will ever reconcile our obvi-
ous differences. That day while in
Indonesia, the answer became
clear. "Love never fails!"
(1Cor.13:8a). That's right, deep
down in the heart of every human

being is a longing to love and to
be loved. Whether Christian,
Muslim, Buddhist or atheist, the
truth is what it is. Though at
times our longing for real love
gets covered up and confused by
other things, when someone final-
ly demonstrates it for us our lives
are changed forever.
Like the pastor in jail that day
who revealed Jesus' love and for-
giveness to everyone he met, may
we all learn from his example and
do the same. Who knows, how we
handle our personal hardships
may be the very thing that sets
others free.

Basil a rewardinQ herb

Q. I am thinking about grow-
.ing basil. Will it grow well
here? CJ
A Sweet basil, Ocimum
..basilicum, will grow very
well here. It should be planted
in the early spring but I have
started it later in the season
(early summer) and have still
been successful. Some forms of
basil are used in cooking but
other varieties such as Ocimum
auranascen are grown for their
ornamental qualities.
Use soil with high organic
content - compost would be per-
fect. Basil can be propagated
from seed
or small
plantings. It
can be
grown in
" garden
plots or
patio con-
tainers in
full sun.
Basil does
not tolerate
'Becky drought
Jorig conditions
but prefers
GARDEN moist soil,
TALI although I
trained my
basil to receive water only once
a week and it grew beautifully.
However, too much water will
easily cause disease issues.
Basil is especially rewarding
as the aroma can be detected
even when walking past the
plant. It can be added to sauces,
vinegars, breads or soups.
Nothing can compare to the
improved flavor of adding fresh
basil to pasta or sauce dishes.
Although, I must admit, I love it
sprinkled on top of sliced toma-
toes from my garden. We will be
discussing growing herbs at the
next Nassau County Extension
"Landscape Matters" on Wed-
nesday at 10 a.m. at the Nassau
County Demonstration Garden.
For more information on
growing herbs in Florida, see
the University of Florida publica-
tion, "Herbs in the Florida
Garden": http://edis.ifas.
ufl.edu/VHO20, or go to the
Nassau County Extension web-
site: http://nassau.ifas.ufl.edu.

diagnose over the phone. Algal
leaf spot, caused by the alga
Cephaleuros virescens, may
appear on a wide variety of plant
species but Southern magnolia
and camellia trees are the most
common targets.
Weather is an important con-
tributing factor - mostly rainfall
or overhead irrigation.
Cephaleuros virescens can sur-
vive until the appropriate weath-
er conditions provide the perfect
environment. The best defense
is to keep trees healthy by pro-
viding proper irrigation, fertiliz-
er and air circulation. Clean up
any leaf or twig debris as these
can provide places for the algae
to incubate. Light pruning on
some of the leaves or twigs
might be beneficial. When possi-
ble, avoid the leaves being wet
for extended periods of time.
Nassau County Extension
conducts plant clinics to the gen-
eral public for help with land-
scape questions. The next plant
clinic will be on Monday from 10
a.m.-2 p.m. Drop by the Yulee
satellite office with a clipping of
your tree, shrub or grass prob-
lems for a free diagnosis. Other
clinics are scheduled for June 2
and 6; Sept. 8 and 22; and Oct. 6
and 20.
. I am growing Anna apples
. and I found these tiny
insects on the underside of the
leaf. Can you tell me what they
are? BW
A .The insects on the Anna
'A.-.apple leaves are aphids.
They are feeding on the plant
juices in the leaf and causing the
leaf to curl. There are dozens of
them under one tiny leaf.
Aphids do not require a male

to reproduce and the young are
born live, skipping the normal
insect egg stage. Aphids can be
controlled by applying horticul-
ture oil on the undersides of new
leaf growth. More than one
application may be necessary.
Notice the aphids are attracted
to new leaves as these leaves are
most tender.
Horticulture oil should be
applied during the morning or
early evening hours. Avoid
applying oil in the heat of the
day as this could damage the
leaves. Remember to read and
follow the directions on the pes-
ticide label. Anna is a good apple
choice for Florida, as are Dorsett
Golden and TropicSweet.
Apples grown in Florida require
a pollinator, so use Dorsett
Golden to cross with Anna or
TropicSweet to produce mature
fruit. Fertilize in January and
June. Irrigate 4-5 inches under
the tree canopy once a week if
sufficient rainfall does not occur.

giving back
About two weeks
ago, I attended a
systemwide retreat
of all of the physi-"
cian leaders affiliated with
Baptist Medical Center.
During the event we dis-
cussed a variety of issues
related to our private prac-
tices as well as those medical
and legal concerns of the hos-
pital. Saturday night there is a
dinner attended by the med-
ical staff and their spouses
with a keynote speaker. This
year the featured guest was
former Jacksonville Jaguar
Tony Boselli.
Despite the fact that he
was a multi-year Pro Bowler,
the first ever pick of the
Jaguars and was elected to
the "1990s All-Decade Team,
Boselli was there not to talk
about his NFL career. He was
there to talk about the Boselli
Foundation, which serves to
help underprivileged children
in the Jacksonville area.
Boselli was quite forth-
right in his speech to those in
attendance. In fact, it really
wasn't so much of a speech,
but.rather a personal testimo-
nial about his desire to help:
He was quite honest in
saying that he started the
foundation for all of the
wrong reasons. He said that
in 1995, when he came out of
college, 'his agent told him
that he should start a "foun-
dation" and that it would be
good for his image; so he said
fine and never really imag-
ined that he would really have
to put much time or effort
into it. However, as time has
gone on, he said that it has
become the most important
thing that he does these days.
Boselli and his wife are
now full-time residents of the
First Coast and he said he is
going to make the
Jacksonville area his perma-
nen(home'.espite what he e
feels are all of the great
things that this city has to
offer, he believes there are
some significant negatives
that have to be corrected in
order for the city to fully
reach its potential. These
include reducing the city's
murder rate, decreasing gen-
eral violence and increasing
Boselli remembered how
his mother always told him
that nothing good happens
after midnight, so he should
be home by then. He has
found, however, for many of
these kids the most impor-
tant time is 3-5 p.m., after-
school. If there is no parent
home or there is no after
school supervision, then trou-
ble is likely to find the child.
He spoke at length about
the Boselli Youth Life
Learning Center, which not
only helps kids with their
deficits in education but
teaches them how to resolve
conflicts without violence and
also helps them to realize that
there is nothing they cannot
The youth targeted for the
after-school programs have
limited financial resources,.
come from all areas of greater
Jacksonville, range in age .
from 5-18 years old and are
selected without regard to
race or ethnic background.
Boselli told us that while
his own kids had dreams for
their future, many of the chil-
dren he was working with in
the foundation had no dreams
because they felt they could
never escape their current sit-
uation or position in life.
Boselli feels, through his
foundation, he can improve
the lives of these children by
encouraging them to set
goals for themselves, believ-
ing that they can reach these
goals and to do their best in
all they undertake.

Kid-sized life jackets
The nation's only program that lends kid-sized
life jackets for free to boaters or anglers is looking
to grow. The BoatU.S Foundation's Life Jacket
Loaner Program, which offers infant, toddler and
children's life jackets at over 350 nationwide loca-
tions, has launched a campaign to raise $50,000 in
additional funds to meet increasing demand by
establishing new loaner locations at marinas, boat
ramps, waterside resorts, boat clubs, bait shops,
towboats, fire houses and other public facilities.
The life jackets are typically loaned out for a day
or weekend.
Started in 1997, the program has loaned out
life jackets on average more than 50,000 times a
year - and saved three lives - as well as given
thousands of parents peace of mind knowing that
their children are wearing a correctly fitted life
A tax-deductible donation of only $10 will buy
one vest-style life jacket and $250 will create a
completely new, fully stocked loaner site.
The $50,000 fundraising drive will also help
replenish life jackets at some existing locations.
Funding for the program is also supported in part
by the 650,000 members of BoatU.S.
"When boaters or anglers bring young guests
aboard, they may not have the right-sized life jack-
et or a child may have outgrown their old jacket,
so the youngster is sometimes put in one that is
too big, or worse, goes without one," said
BoatU.S. Foundation Program Manager Ted
Since many states, as well as a federal rule,
now require life jackets to be worn by children,
the loaner program has helped out families caught
unaware of such requirements.
Go to www.BoatUS. com/Foundation to make
a donation online or mail your donation to
BoatU.S. Foundation, c/o Life Jacket Loaner
Program, 880 South Pickett St., Alexandria, VA
22304. To find a loaner site in your area visit

Spring is time

to take stock

For the News-Leader
S spring cleaning the wine cabinet isn't about
dusting old bottles that have been resting
quietly waiting for that special day. It's about
taking stock of the inventory to moire the
heavy reds and full-bodied whites and to make
sure there's enough light whites to get through the
coming hot days of summer.
Your favorite cabernet, pinot noir or zinfandel
will not taste the same when the temperatures
climb towards 90. Light,
crisp whites are,the
summer wines of choice. W fINE &
The heavier reds of win-
ter are no longer A
refreshing and even .
hardy chardonnays lose
interest. In past wine tasting, chards that were
highly rated in December couldn't make the cut
in June. I've found that sauvignon blanc also tends
to be t' heavy on the hottest days.
A good summer White wine is one that is fresh,
clear and crisp with light fruit nuances; a gentle
beverage to be sipped slowly and savored either
as&i apa:itif or over a light meal offnir, fish, shell
fish, pork or chicken. I prefer bone-dry wine such
as pinot gris and grillo or a dry ros6 from
Provence. If your preference runs to softer, less
dry wine, then choose riesling from Alsace or the
Columbia River Valley or a Vouvray from the
Loire or a Chilean ros6 made from the cabernet
sauvignon grape.
Here is a guide to summer drinking relying
solely on wines available in the area under $20:
Pinot gris
Known as pinot grigio when grown in Italy, the
grape is at its best when produced in cooler cli-
mates, such as Alsace west of the Rhine and on
either side of the Columbia River. These north-
ern-grown wines are bone dry, but not as raw and
acidic as their low cost Italian kin that dominate

'Prince Caspian' a solid Narnia sequel

Universal Press Syndicate

Movies based on
books should always
tell their stories with-
out the presumption
that all audience members have
read the book that inspired it.
That's one of the few problems
with "Prince Caspian," the second
Narnia film from director Andrew
Adamson and a worthy follow-up
to his hugely successful and art-
ful "The Chronicles of Narnia:
The Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe," released in 2005.
Especially in the beginning of
"Prince Caspian," there is a bit of
sloughing over the details of C.S.
Lewis' story, which may confuse
those who have never read the
original material or seen "The
ion, the Witch and the
Ultimately it doesn't really
matter, as one is quickly caught
up in several interlocking plot
points - all focused on some
pretty basic, universal themes of
good vs. evil and right triumph-
ing over wrong.
The four young actors - who
have aged somewhat less obvi-
ously than might be expected,
given the lapse of three years -
reprise their roles as the
Pevensie siblings. Georgie
Henley (Lucy), 12 when she shot
this, Skandar Keynes (Edmund),
16, Anna Popplewell (Susan), 19,
and William Moseley (Peter), 21,
all return and infuse their char-
acters with the same sensibilities
they had in the first movie.
Henley's Lucy is the joyous,
inquisitive one. Keynes' Edmund
still has a subtle comedic twist.
Popplewell's Queen Susan is
practical and focused. And
Moseley does a nice job of cap-
turing the brooding qualities of.
Peter, the High King of Narnia,
who can let his arrogance get
the better of him.

tle action and violence)

In a fairly brief opening
sequence in a World War II-era
London subway station near
Trafalgar Square, the Pevensies
are magically transported back
through a portal into the world
of Narnia, but one far different
from the one they last left.
Thirteen hundred years have
passed since the Pevensies
departed Narnia, where they

ruled as virtually mythical kings
and queens. The Telmarine peo-
ple, led by a series of prejudiced
and superstitious monarchs,
have overrun and captured
Narnia as their own - driving the
unusual assemblage of Narnian
creatures deep into the forest,
where only a few descendants of
their proud ancestors once ruled
by Lucy, Edmund, Susan and
Peter still exist.
The Pevensies find their
beloved Cair Paravel fortress is
in ruins, the Narnian race is
almost extinct, and Aslan has not
been seen in more than 1,000
years. In fact, many Telmarines
have come to believe that the
stories about the Narnians are
mere mythology - a lovely
underlying fable that adds a
sweet level of richness (and
irony) to a tale that is pure fanta-
sy in the first place!
We quickly discover that it
was the bellowing blast from
Susan's horn blown by young
Prince Caspian that summons
the four Pevensies back to
Narnia. Caspian (played nicely
by newcomer Ben Barnes) is the
rightful heir to the throne of

Telmarine - a throne recently
left vacant by his late father's
untimely death, revealed to be
the handiwork of Caspian's
uncle, the evil Lord Miraz, who
covets that throne and the
supreme power that goes with it.
Miraz is played with a malev-
olent zeal - of Shakespearean
proportions reminiscent of
"Macbeth" - by the talented
Italian actor Sergio Castellitto.
On the night his wife gives birth
to their son, Miraz puts into
action a plot to kill Caspian and
seize the throne. Thanks only to
the midnight warning by
Caspian's loyal tutor Dr. Corn-
elius (Vincent Grass), Caspian
escapes, but with Miraz's hench-
men in hot pursuit.
Only in the Narnian forest,
aided by Susan's horn, is
Caspian able to put the remain-
der of this tale of adventure and
action into play. As he did in the
firstfilm, Adamson again has
solidly married live action with
computer-generated wizardry to
provide us with a believable
world inhabited by humans, talk-
ing animals, centaurs, minotaurs
and flying beasts.
As is always key in these
kinds of films, comic relief is pro-
vided, this time by the quick-
tongued, swashbuckling mouse
Reepicheep (voiced by the
always delightful Eddie Izzard).
Similar duty is served by Ken
Stott, who gives voice to the
badger, Trufflehunter.
The action sequences are
impressive. As Caspian realizes
he must depend on the Narnians
to claim his throne, and in
exchange return their land to
them, thrilling scenes showcase
the natural competitiveness
between Caspian and Moseley's
King Peter.
"Prince Caspian" largely
works and keeps our escape into
fantasy intact. It's a solid sequel,.
though at times a bit repetitive.

Set in India in 1937, the story
of a landowner who has an affair
with his servant woman, with
tragic consequences.
Straightforward melodrama,
lushly photographed, told with
" 'past'h"and romaidrticism. But. a

a stalwart cast of Indian actors.

Tickets and show times
"The Don Theo Experience,"
a mind-reading and psychic illu-
sion show, comes to the
Fernandina Little Theatre tonight
and Saturday and May 23 and
24 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8
and available at the theater,
1014 Beech St., and at the UPS

up and hired a babysitter to come
and see you and why would you
not give them the most respect you
possibly could?"
He's also not "some new-agey
person who believes in contacting
people from the other side- Ithink
they're just fine where they are."
Rather, Theo said much of his
work is based on "field research"
and well-developed powers of
observation and communication,
coupled with concentration and a
good understanding of statistics

and probability.
"Statistically, I do most things
to hopefully give myself a hand," he
said. "I think everybody has that
same amount of intuition."
A strong sense of humor and
talent as a storyteller also help, and
his show is peppered with both - as
well as lots of surprises.
"If I just sat up there and asked
the audience to think of something,
that would be OK- but there is no
drama in that."

"Every show is different," said
Theo, a recent transplant to Amelia
Island. "You can see four shows
and they will all be completely dif-
ferent," depending on the audience
that night and what it brings to the
And while it is billed as a psychic
illusion and mind-reading show,
Theo says drop any preconceptions
you might have.
"The first thing people do is,
'Tell me what I'm thinking,' but it
doesn't really work that way," said
Theo. And with audience partici-
pation, his first order of business is
to put everybody at ease.
"I'm not going to make fun of
anybody," said Theo, who said he

made to behave like chickens or
perform other embarrassing stunts.

rounded pino gris, although
more costly. Washington State's

is a fine wine.

.crisp citric flavors and pleasant
acidity. It has a long finish. This
is the white wine we. drink most
throughout the summer because
it goes best with the full-flavored
seafood dishes my Sicilian
Contessa prepares.

Riesling is one of the world's
great grapes, but it doesn't get its
due probably because German
rieslings, that dominate the mar-
ket, are too sweet for most foods.
Riesling is softer than pinot gris,
less dry with more fruit in the

mouth. (Demi-sec is the French
description.) If your preference
runs to off-dry wine, then you
should look to Alsace, or to the
Willamette Valley of Oregon or
New Zealand. Trimbach is the
"gold standard" of rieslings, but
its price has run over $20.
Chateau Ste. Michelle makes a
good version of the
Johannesberg varietal and can be
found at $12 to $15. New
Zealand's vintners have been
doing wonders with riesling. The
cooler South Island, especially
around Marlborough, is ideal for
growing riesling. The climate
and soil produce distinctive pun-
gency and zesty fruit flavors in
its rieslings. Villa Maria has been.
New Zealand's leading wine
award winner since the early
1980s, and its riesling has been
seen on the First Coast for
around $10 to $12. I do not rec-
ommend California rieslings as
the climate is too warm for this
cold-natured grape. There is a
wine called "grey riesling" which
is not a true riesling, but made
from the trousseau grape.

Ros6s are a fun wine for sum-
mer, especially as a patio aperitif.
We love ros6s from Provence as

they are dryer and crisper than.
others, but we are now seeing
softer ros6s from Chile, such as
Anakena and Vina La Posada,
ros6s made from cabernet
sauvignon and available locally at
$9 to $11. These are not the cloy-
ingly sweet Portuguese Lancers
and Mateus. They are medium
dry, with full fruit flavors. There
is a lot of rose from France's
Anjou province but most is
frumpy, simple wine. Domaine
de Fontsainte, from Corbieres in
the Pyr6n6es foothills, is a blend
of grenache, syrah, mourvedre

and carignan, which reflects
Spanish influence.

Vouvray is a small town at the
eastern edge of France's Loire
Valley known for its white chenin
blanc wine. Vouvray wines tend
to be fruitier than riesling but
still have a dry flavor, although it

Rex continued, "These gifts
are furthering our mission of pro-
viding community residents with
access to world-renowned artists
and promoting the appreciation
of chamber music to audiences
of all ages, interests and back-
grounds. Last year, more than 600
people attended our Concert in
the Park, many of whom never
may have been exposed to cham-
ber music or a performance of
this kind. We anticipate a similar-
ly large turnout at this year's
event, particularly since the con-
cert will feature spirited works
by great American composers."
The. 2008 Amelia Island

ent an extensive program of
German, French, Russian, Czech

up includes violin virtuosos

Claude Frank and Andreas
Haefliger. The 2008 festival also

area residents will be able to hear
the Guarneri String Quartet, one
of the world's greatest chamber
ensembles that will retire after
the 2008-9 season.
