Commissioner on the phone to county employees
Three years after an ordinance was revised
to limit her interference in county government,
Nassau County Commissioner Marianne
Marshall continues to make frequent and lengthy
phone calls to county staff.
The commission chair says she is just doing
her job. "I've always tried to do my due dili-
gence and I think everyone needs to be that
concerned. You can ask anybody, I will do my
homework," she said. 'There is nothing to hide.
Marshall made or received at least 88 phone
calls from county personnel from early
December through late March, a check of about
three months of phone records shows. Many
calls are 15 minutes or longer.
Contacting staff is not in itself illegal, as,long
as commissioners notify County Coordinator
Ed Sealover, and they may not give directives. "If
a majority of the Board of County
Commissioners finds that a county commis-
sioner has violated this section, the board may
notify the governor," the ordinance states.
It was revised in 2005 following a $50,000
fact-finding investigation sparked by Marshall's

Don't leave your pets in hot car
HEATHER A. PERRY
Fido may enjoy riding in the car,
but it's best to leave him home in the
heat of summer.
The interior temperature of a vehi-
cle can reach 160 degrees in minutes
on a 90-degree day, according to
People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals. Rolling the windows down a
little bit or parking in the shade does
nothing to help prevent fatal heat
stroke or hyperthermia.
Dr. Greg Stacey of Fernandina
Beach Animal Clinic said, "Dogs (and
cats) have a much reduced ability to
lower their body temperatures ver-
sus people because they simply do
not sweat (except a small amount
through their paws). Their only way
to cool off is by panting."
Left inside a vehicle, the animal's
body temperature can rise rapidly,
causing severe damage and even
death. Restlessness, heavy panting,
dark tongue, fever, vomiting, exces-
sive thirst and rapid heartbeat are all
symptoms of this deadly and pre-
ventable condition, PETA warns.
"People who suspect that their pets
have become overheated should
bring them to a veterinarian immedi-
ately, and in the interim period should
try to cool them down with fans, spray
bottles and cool towels," said Stacey,
"If people do see animals in a car,

when a water bowl is overturned.
Leaving a pet with no shelter from
the summer sun is an invitation to
heatstroke, notes PETA Outdoor pets
require adequate sun shelter, such
as a doghouse. Weighted bowls are
less likely to turn over. A kiddy pool
can provide relief from the heat. But
when temperatures climb, it is best to
bripg pets indoors.
Limiting outdoor activity to the
early morning or evening hours
will reduce the danger of heat stress,
says PETA. Running on the beach
during the heat of the day should be
"Often times because dogs love to
'please' their owners, they will overex-
ert and not show signs of heat exhaus-
tion until it is too late," said Stacey.

It is a third-degree felony in Florida
to leave an animal in a parked car,
unattended with no shelter from the
heat. Punishment includes up to five
years in prison or a $10,000 fine or
Although tethering a dog for a
brief period to get some exercise is
acceptable, chaining a dog to a tree or
tether for days or weeks on end with
no shelter during extreme heat is con-
sidered animal cruelty. It is punish-
able under the same laws applied to
pets in vehicles.
Outdoor pets also suffer in the
heat. Dehydration can set in quickly

The 5th Annual Northeast
Florida Fair Association's Youth
Poultry Show took place Satur-
day morning iti the Small
Animal Barn, and was followed
by the Youth Poultry Showman-
Judge for this year's show
was Danny Padgett of Lake
Butler, who judged both shows.
Northeast Florida Fair
Association Poultry Superinten-
dent Wanda Simmons said the
11 youths who participated in
the show this year submitted
86. entries. According to
Simmons, one youth showed
16 of those 86 entries.
Last year, 15 exhibitors pre-
sented 71 entries.
This show was for youths
between 5 and 18 years of age
and no mixed breeds or pro-
duction birds were permitted.
Referring to the number of
entries, Simmons said, "It's still
down. Again, I think it's got to
do with the rising cost of gas
and everything else but we did
a little bit better this year." She
added that some exhibitors trav-
eled as far as 190 miles to com-
pete in the show.
"We had a good quality
show. Many visitors at the
Blueberry Festival came and
looked at the 26 different
breeds that were represented
at the show," said Simmons.
"We'd like to thank our spon-
sors, which included Florida

often and includes Sealover in

CC it to Ed Sealover so he
knows that I made this inquiry,"
"I don't talk to department
heads unless 1 go through

he does, it is to inquire about
issues specific to his district
such as a clogged culvert or
overgrown roadway, said
Holloway. "As far as giving any

But Marshall said being

honey, we have to go above and
beyond." And because she does
not use e-mail, Marshall said
her phone record naturally
reflects more activity than her
colleagues', as well as the fact
that she is well known.
"People know me and they
call me from other districts -
they know I will get an answer
for them," she spid.
"A lot of times I will do a
three-way call" to Code

Marshall. Once the test was

am supposed to do," said
"I want to be the best that I

N assau County Commissioner Jim
B. Higginbotham has announced
his withdrawal from the Republi-
can Party and will run for a fourth
term as a nonpartisan candidate.
Higginbotham, who was first elected to
the commission as a Democrat, said he
changed party affiliations again to assure
that non-Republican voters would have a
voice in the election.
"As currently written, Florida's election
law makes it almost impossible to assure
that all the registered voters in the county
can vote for me if I run as a Republican," he
said in a press release. "... This change will
allow all the citizens of Nassau County to
cast a vote."
That's baloney. Florida has closed pri-
mary elections, which means that only regis-
tered party members may vote in the pri-
mary unless the primary.election:is
tantamount to a general election. .
No Democrat has filed to seek the com-
mission seat representing District 1, which
encompasses Fernandina Beach. In that
case, Democrats or nonaffiliated voters also
could cast ballots in a universal primary
Aug. 26 because otherwise they would have
no choice. That's the law, and Higginbotham
should know it.
Higginbotham changed from a Democrat
to a Republican for convenience as the GOP
became Nassau County's majority party. He
has become nonpartisan for convenience as
His party change means he will not have
to face formidable opponent Danny Leeper
in the Republican primary. But he denied
Leeper's primary opposition influenced his
"I think everyone in this county should
be nonpartisan, really," he told us. "Every-
body in this county should be able to vote.",
Had he remained a Republican, everyone
in the county could have voted for him or
Leeper on Aug. 26. Now that he's unaffiliat-
ed, everyone in the county still has that
choice, but on Nov. 4.
Higginbotham is no Republican, he's no
Democrat and he's no small-d democrat
His is a democracy of personal conven-
ience a partisan of one. We trust voters will
keep that in mind in August, November or
whenever they get a choice at the ballot box.
Charity fishing tournament
The second Annual Angela Walsh Charity
Fishing Tournament, held onJune 7, was a
great success. The tournament was held to
benefit the non-profit organization, Anchors
Aweigh Charters, Inc., which provides free
fishing charters to those with physical dis-
abilities. A portion of the proceeds also pro-
vided sponsorships for local youths that oth-
erwise would not be able to participate in the
Fernandina Beach Pop Warner Program.
We would like to thank all of the volunteers
that worked diligently during the event and
the awards dinner after the tournament. We
would also like to extend a special thank you
to Chick-Fil-a for catering the captains' meet-
ing held on June 6.
This year's event was made possible by the
following sponsors: Chick-Fil-a, T & A Sports,

Ray's Burger Station, Dick's Wings, Amelia

I'm betting on the quick fix. Americans

The long lines at the pumps? The alternating

The frustration of waiting in line an hour only

do. Americans were horrified. Not since World
War II had gasoline been rationed in this copm-
try. We didn't know what to do. See, prior to
that, Americans wanted gas guzzlers and mus-
cle cars. Even small American-made cars
weren't fuel efficient. But what the hey, gas
was only 30 cents a gallon.
And then came the oil crisis, which was fol-
lowed by the Asian invasion. Our industrious
Japanese friends came to our aid with a new
breed of car that was cheap and fuel-efficient
and that would run practically forever before
the final pit stop in the junkyard. American car
dealers couldn't sell little Hondas and Toyotas

Remember all those butt-ugly Pintos and
Gremlins and the hideous Chrysler K-Car?
You'll still occasionally see an ancient Honda or
Volkswagen toddling down the road. Ill wager
that the last place you saw a Pinto was in a
junkyard 20 years ago.
But like the guy with the bad ticker, we
'ignored the signs and procrastinated. When
the price of gas came back down and we start-
ed feeling less paranoid, we started pigging
out on the gas hogs again. Came the '90s and
everyone went out and bought SUVs, which
got bigger with each passing year until they
approximated the size and fuel efficiency of a
motor home. And then the big one and here
we are back on the coronary unit praying for
another chance. But a dying man often
reneges on deathbed promises if he survives.
Regardless of your politics, this is why
drilling off the coast of Florida or in the Arctic
National Wildlife Reserve isn't the answer. All
it will do is make us complacent and give us a
false sense of security. Maybe there is enough
petroleum in those places to fuel our needs for
the next five decades. Americans aren't going
to change their consumption habits. You're
naive if you thinlkso. Hedonism is in.
Asceticism is out We want to drive Hummers

Millions of kids drive to school. Think of the

schools financial incentives to increase their
We need to start practicing good preventive
medicine and not resort to quackery and
snake oil treatments. Even if we did drill in the
ANWAR and hit the mother lode, gasoline isn't
ever going back to a buck a gallon or less
again. Why should it? They now know we'll pay
a premium for it.
Painful as it may be, we'd better get back on
the treadmill before this thing kills us.

VIEWPOINT/JOE GERRITY/FERNANDINA BEACH
Trash contract a slap in the face'
would like to give Commissioner Ron Sapp
a sincere "thank you" for the consideration
shown to the citizens with his vote against
the new refuse collection contract awarded
to Advanced Disposal. It was a slap in the face
to the citizens of Fernandina Beach when the
contract was not awarded through the compet-
itive bid process. While Advanced had an,
option for an additional five years in the origi-
nal contract, it was not an option to re-negoti-
ate a new contract, but to continue along with
the same terms of the existing contract.
The city manager recommended that the
commission accept the contract "based on the
level of customer satisfaction." What is his
point of reference to compare the level of "sat-
isfaction" we are accustomed to? He didn't live
here when the city picked up the trash. During
the last two years at city commission meet-
ings, we listened to Commissioner Bruce
Malcolm go on and on about trash pickup
problems in his neighborhood. I had several
complaints and phone calls about pickup prob-
lems, especially about yard waste in the Peck
and Southside neighborhoods. In all fairness
to Advanced, there were no more or less com-
plaints about trash pickup than when the city
provided the service.

whispered advice, no method to collect old
telephone books and no way to collect and dis-
pose computer components that have reached
the end of their useful life. The new screw-in
florescent light bulbs need special attention
when they are discarded to avoid contaminat-
ing the environment. Commercial customers
are not required to recycle at all. Yet none of
these issues were addressed in the new con-
Another reason to use the competitive bid
process is transpareAcy in government.
Citizens can follow the process and feel com-
fortable that their elected and appointed offi-
cials are doing the besf to obtain the best level
of service in the most economical way. It also
eliminates the perception of "backroom deals"
and cronyism between city officials and ven-
Two budget cycles ago the commission,
approved a "purchasing agent" position to
assist staff with preparation of requests for
proposals, among other things. Are we wast-
ing our money on that position? Why pay for
this position when the biggest and most
expensive contract that the citizens will have
to shoulder is not even put out for bid? With
difficult economic times such as the ones we
are experiencing now, it is only good common
sense that we find the least expensive ways to
service our citizens. It would not even require
a new RFP, just modifications to the form we
used five years ago.
We will never know what the best rate
would be for the next five years, because staff
did not have the common sense to go through
the RFP process, and the commission did not
care enough about their constituents to hold
staff accountable. As city government strug-
gles to reach a level of mediocrity, we need to
remember that running government is not
rocket science. All it takes is sound business
practices, some common sense and a staff that
realizes that the citizen is not an interruption
of their work, but the purpose of their work.
We have quite a way to go in Fernandina

friends were there, sharing in this wonderful
time, including first cousins Bernice Jones-
White, and her family from Miami and Port
St. Lucie, and Maybelle Jones K-Brown from
O'Neil. His 94-year-old aunt, Annie Lee Jones-,
Johnson, was unable to attend. However, she
sent her love.
From their children: "To Mom and Dad,
Harold and Dorothy Jones. You are simply
two very special people and your specialness
shines so very bright. You've been our inspi-
ration, our grounding rock; in every way,
you've been our shining light. You both have
such very fine qualities, qualities that simply
can't be bought, and you have passed these
on to your offspring and we're very grateful
for all the lessons you taught.
"Integrity is your watchword. We can't
remember a lie or a debt not paid. Your faith
in God is unquestionable and that's the way it
has always stayed. You both are very forgiv-
ing and willing to overlook shortcomings in
others. Your words of advice have been treas-
ured by us and many others. We love you
Their children planned and took a very
active part in presenting this service. Truly it
was a service. God's presence was there from
beginning to end. They are
all elders, deacons and evan-
gelists. Elder Eugene, the
president, said they had to
have church. That's all they
know. It was said to them,
I that's all their father and
mother knew, so they taught
them what they knew.
Their prayer to their par-
NOW AND ents is "May you always
THEN have God's presence and
... His perfect will to guide you.
A future bright before you
Maybelle and the one you love beside
Kirkland you. A marriage that is
everything God meant for it
'This wonderful 60th anniversary toast
isn't just about telling our parents that we
love them but rather is a momentous time for
reliving special moments in their lives. Your
presence has strengthened our belief and has
enabled us to convey our love to them. We
are elated to have you share in this memo-
rable celebration with us. We thank you for
sharing your precious time with us this
evening. We pray God's richest blessing and
favors rest upon each of you."
To God be the glory for all he has done.
Love kept them together. These are the chil-
dren of Elder Harold and Mother Dorothy
Jones: David Jones, Samuel Jones, Virginia
Jonds-Humphrey, Lawrence Jones,/Reginald
Jones, Patricia Jones, Brenda Jones-Thomas,
Harold Jones, Eugene Jones, Andrea Jones
and Jeffrey Jones.

Proper growing conditions critical for everything from ferns to fruit
Q.I am having large dead
*areas on the leaves of
my bird's nest fern. What is
wrong with it? DN
A Bird's nest fern,
.Asplenium nidus, is a
large, epiphytic fern, with
erect, simple, wavy, bright
green leaves that can reach
lengths of four feet. Asplenium
nidus "Crispafolium," the
wavy bird's nest fern, is simi-
lar to bird's nest fern but the
fronds are much wavier. This
plant grows bestin warmer,
humid climatesItA oes not
tolerate temperatures below
Bird's nest fern needs con-
tinual moist soil; it should
never be allowed toqgo dry
between watering. The linear
lines you see are spores from
which new plants can be prop-
agated. The large dead areas
are probably caused by fungal
spores. Plants often have dis-
ease issues when grown out of
their preferred environment
Bird's nest ferns might

ments here as long as they

Your camellia probably does

Cantaloupe should be

occur in wet, humid climates
or if too much irrigation is
applied too often: Cantaloupe
prefers fertile, well-drained
slightly acidic sandy or silt
loam soil with a pH between
6.0 and 6.5. Additions of high
levels of nitrogen may prevent
plants from maximum fruit
production and maturity. Use
formulations of fertilizers sim-

It seems so simple. Why
can't we figure out how to spare
more trees? We pay a terrible

A Callahan man suffered seri-
ous injuries Wednesday when
the bicycle he was riding was
struck by an SUV.
Lt. Bill Leeper of the Florida
Highway Patrol said John
Williams, 42, of Callahan, was
riding his bike east in the west-
bound lane of SR 200, just west of
Stratton Road in Callahan, when
he was struck by a'1998 Ford
Explorer driven by Courtney
Whitaker, 20, also of Callahan.
Williams was taken by heli-
copter to Shands Jacksonville,
where he was listed in critical
condition Thursday morning.
According to the police
report, Whitaker changed lanes
to avoid a collision when a car in
front of her braked suddenly.
Leeper said the woman would
not be charged in the accident
because Williams was riding his
bike against the flow of traffic.
Bicyclists are required to ride
Leeper said he did not know
whether Williams was wearing a
helmet, which is not required

Metal bats versus wood bats
Q: What are your thoughts on banning
A People who call for a ban of the metal
baseball bat believe that a hit ball comes
off an aluminum bat faster than off a wood
bat, thus making it more dangerous.
However, there is no conclusive data to sup-
port that metal bats are more dangerous than
wood bats, but rather a lot of anecdotal evi-
dence and unfortunate stories from parents
whose children have been injured.
Steven Domalewski is a 12-year-old pitcher
who was hit in the chest by a ball hit off a
metal bat After being hit, his heart temporar-
ily stopped and he lay on the mound uncon-
scious while CPR was administered.
Although he survived, he did sustain mas-
sive oxygen deprivation brain injury. His par-
ents blame the metal bat and have filed suit
against metal bat manufacturer Hillerich &
Bradsby, The Sports Authority, where the bat
was purchased, and Little League Baseball,
claiming that they all knew the bat was inher-
ently dangerous and sold it anyway.
While metal bats are more durable and
thus cheaper in the long run, every time a
player is hit by a pitch off a metal bat, this
The New York City Council last year
passed a ban against metal bats in high
school games. Debbie Patch, whose 18-year-
old son Brandon was killed after being hit in
the head by a line drive during a game in
2003, testified before the New York Council,
"The bat companies promote it as, 'Choose
your weapon,' and that's what they are."
The type of injury that killed Brandon
Patch fortunately is rare. A study from the
National Center for Catastrophic Sports
Injury Research shows that there have been
only 15 catastrophic batted ball injuries to
pitchers out of more than 9.5 million high
school and college participants since 1982.
Many cite a Brown University study that
did show aluminum bats hit the ball harder,
creating more ball speed than wood bats. The
study cited increased speeds off the bat due
to increases in swing speeds (due to the fact
it is lighter than wood) and the elasticity of
the metal, which flexed when a ball struck it,
denting inward and creating a "trampoline
effect" that bounced the ball off at a greater
However, that study is now considered
outdated because bats used in the Brown
study would be outlawed today. Since 2003 all
bats must meet a safety standard called the
BESR (Bat Exit Speed Ratio) performance
limitation, which ensures that aluminum bats
do not hit the ball any harder than the best

reviewed articles that show

SMITH, M.D., on metal bats in youth and
...-- high school baseball games.
Other organizations such as
the NCAA and the National High School
Federation have tracked safety statistics and
they too have decided that aluminum bats do
not pose a safety risk.
The Medical/Safety Advisory Committee
of USA Baseball compared injuries to pitch-
ers from metal bats versus wood bats. Metal
bat injury data were taken from NCAA base-
ball and wood bat injury data collected from
college summer leagues, which all use wood
After two years of collecting data from a
total of 331,821 batted balls, there have only
been 17 injuries to NCAA college pitchers
and 15 injuries to college summer league
This data does indicate these injuries are
uncommon and there is no data to indicate
that metal bats pose an increased risk or that
the injuries from metal bats would not have
happened if the batter was using a wood bat.
However, despite all of the evidence, some
kids do get severely injured, but it does not
appear that this can be pinned on the alu-
minum bat. The Consumer Product Safety
Commission stands by its statement, "The
commission is not aware of any information
that injuries produced by balls batted with
non-wood bats are more severe than those
involving wood bats."

A musical for all ages at Alhambra
T he stage is alive with "The Sound of
Music" at Alhambra Dinner Theatre
in Jacksonville through July 27 -
perfect timing for families in search
of a nearby summer outing.
A classic for all ages, "The Sound of
Music" is based on the true story of the Von
Trapp family and Maria Augusta Kutschera, a
joyful young woman who leaves the convent
to become governess to the seven spirited
children of Capt. Georg Von Trapp, an auto-
cratic widower more at home on the high
seas than in his own living room.
The play is set in Austria at the beginning
of the German Nazi advance of 1938 and fol-
lows the Von Trapps as they navigate the
shoals of the new regime and ponder whether
and when to leave. But it also is a love story
and an uplifting play about family an
estranged father and his children who are
transformed by the tenderness and kindness
Maria brings to their everyday lives.
Tying it all together is a score brimming
over with such memorable songs as "My
Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," "Climb Every
Mountain," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen,"
"The Lonely Goatherd" and, of course, the
title song, "The Sound of Music." It is
Rodgers and Hammerstein at their best, and
the Alhambra ensemble captures the joy and
the intrigue, the optimism anid the fear and
the yearning and the sadness of a tumultuous
time in history set to stunning music.
As Maria, Stephanie Baldwin brings the
right mix of energy and innocence, yet prag-
matism, too, to the role of a governess who
may be fresh out of the convent but is not eas-
ily shocked by the antics of her unruly
charges. And Millicent Sylvester as Mother
Tickets and showtimes

Abbess is not the stereotypical withered old
nun, but a caring and kind superior looking
out for the best interests of her postulants.

ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB
For the News-Leader
Six thousand years ago wines from the
Iberian Peninsula today's Spain and
Portugal were among the most covet-
ed in the western world. Phoenicians
and Carthaginians hauled Iberian wine
amphorae around the Mediterranean Sea in
their trading ships as their rulers vied for eco-
nomic dominance. Wines from Iberian villages
became a favorite of Roman Caesats nd their
grape vines were planted throughout the west-
But Iberian wine went into a millennia of
hibernation during 700 years of abstemious
Moorish rule, expul- ,
sion of Sephardic i'
Jews who were the E '
core of the Iberian
wine industry in the
15th century, financial '
ruin caused by the .
between Spain and England, the displace-
ments caused by Napoleon, Franco and the
Spanish civil war.
With political turbulence absent and the
economic stimulus of membership in the euro
community, Iberian wine began a comeback
and at the dawn of the 21st century Spanish
and Portuguese wines were once again catch-
ing the attention of aficionados throughout the
world, including here in Nassau County.
Members of the Cellar Dwellers, Nassau's
wine club, had a first-hand experience with
Spanish wines recently at special tasting
event held by Espafia, the Fernandina Beach
South Fourth Street restaurant. Roberto and
Marina Pestana put together a selection of
well-matched food and wines that included:
appetizers of chorizo, Serrano ham,
manchego/pequillo peppers and buquerones
served with sangria; gazpacho served with
albarinho; tapas shrimp served with cava
(sparkling Spanish wine); grilled.lamb, beef
and duck served with red Rioja; Paella
Valencia served with Ribiero del Duero Torta
de Santiago (lemon almond tort) and flan
served with Port and'cream sherry.
The two wines that held the most interest
to this writer were the albarinho and the
Rias Baixas, a once obscure part of Galicia
in northwest Spain, is defined by its inlets and
rivers (rias) that extend inland from the
Atlantic Ocean. The signature grape grown
along these riverbanks for millennia is the
white albarinho. One of the best examples of
this wine I have tasted is a $12 (or so) wine
called Nora from the Vi6a Nora winery and'
this is the wine served by Espafla. It is a deli-
cious, lively and full-bodied dry wine, well bal-
anced with ripe fruit, minerals and good acidi-
The grapes for this wine come from 48
acres of 15-year old vineyards that surround
the winery in the town of As Neves (in case
you want to visit). You can see Portugal from
the vineyards. (Nora is the Galician word for

PHOTO COURTESY OFALHAMBRA DINNER THEATRE
Patti Eyler, Andrea Daveline, Meghan Moroney and
Millicent Sylvester, from left as the sisters of the
abbey, ponder what to do with Maria, seated, played
by Stephanie Baldwin.
Roy Johns, big of voice
and tall of stature, is yet
appropriately sympathetic as
the buttoned-up Capt. Von
Trapp who finally sees that
he cannot run his family like
a well-oiled military
machine. And Tony Triano is
his perfect foil as friend Max
Detweiler, who takes a prac-
ticed laizzes-faire attitude to
the Nazi encroachment, .
rolling his eyeballs and giv-
ing a limp "sieg heil" when-
ever they approach.
They all are impressive,
but it is the children who are
really impressive. For such a
demanding musical, produc-
er and director Tod Booth
has wisely utilized two casts
of children the red team
and the blue team. On a
recent Sunday it was team
blue's turn, and from little
Gretl to the lovely Liesl, they
did not miss a beat, a word
or a cue. Particularly
enchanting is "So Long,

great northern plateau of -
the Iberian Peninsula north
of Madrid. At 2,300-2,600
feet above sea level on
chalky soil, the region's hot
days yield intensely ripe fla-
vors while cool nights and
adequate rain help retain
acidity, thus preventing over-
ripeness and giving struc-
ture and vitality to the fruit.
Blessed by this combination
of microclimate, terroir and
the native grape tempranillo,
the plateaulyields superb,
complex red wines.

tury-old Vega Sicilia and
decades-old Pesquera pro-

finest Bordeaux, but with
the unique flavors of tem-
pranillo. Protos and Vifia
Pedrosa are other good
labels to look for. The Cellar
Farewell," that clockwork
number that ultimately pro-
vides the Von Trapp's clever
escape from an Austria that
was so beloved but is now'so
changed it prompts Capt.
Von Trapp to muse, "I always
thought of these mountains
as my friends standing
there protecting us. Now
they seem to have become
The situation seems
hopeless, until Mother
Abbess reminds him, "Never
your enemies. 'I will lift up
mine eyes unto the hills
from whence cometh my
"Georg, I know these
mountains as well as I know
this Abbey. And so do you,"
Maria chimes in, bringing
them to the full realization of
what they must do.
As suddenly as it
descended the darkness lifts,
and once again, the hills are
alive with "The Sound of

combination of meats, rice
