The Nassau County School
Board has revised its school calen-

es missed in August due to Tropical
Storm Fay.
Students will return to school
from Christmas vacation one day
earlier, on Jan. 6, to make up the
first day. The second make-up day is
Feb. 16, President's Day.
A teacher planning day original-
ly scheduled for Jan. 6 has been

executive director of administrative
services for the school district
Students missed classes soon
after the new school year had begun
on Aug. 21 and 22 when Tropical
Storm Fay brought high winds,
heavy rain and flooding to Nassau
County, especially on the West Side
near Callahan.
The school board approved the
changes at its regular meeting Sept.

FRIDAY. October 3, 2008 NEWS News-Leader

BUDGET continued from 1A
said. "... A little breathing room
is better than no breathing
room at all."
But other speakers from
the Wilson Neck area in Yulee
pleaded with the commission
to repave the roads in their
Commissioner Mike Boyle
said their concerns illustrated
the balance needed between
low taxes and workable gov-
ernment. "It's not that we're
turning a blind eye or a deaf
ear to the people who are hurt-
ing," but the county has to be
able to provide basic services
such as road repair, he said.
Commissioners pointed out
that the recommended mill-
age rate of 7.2364 is lower than
the maximum allowable by the
state and with the increased
homestead exemption man-
dated by Amendment 1, most
property owners will see their
county taxes decrease.
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson thought she saw a
contradiction in Crawford's
request to channel $6.3 mil-
lion back to the taxpayers.
"From what I've researched
in the budget, that $6.3 mil-
lion is from the one-cent fund,
which the clerk recommended
we dedicate to capital proj-
ects," she said.
Commissioner Barry
Holloway pointed out the $6.3
million was indeed part of $23
million newly allocated for cap-
ital improvements and that a
fully funded capital improve-
ment plan was required by
state law. "It's not just this year
'that we have all this money to
spend," he said. "It goes out
over a five-year period."
"(Crawford) was asked (at
the Sept 15 budget hearing),
'How much would this save
the average homeowner?'"
Boyle said. "And his answer

was less than $10 a month.
Now, we have to balance that
$10 a month with being able to
pave those roads."
The commission voted to
finalize the proposed property
tax rates, with the exception of
Marshall, who was vocal in her
.support of Crawford's propos-
Boyle said Crawford
should have delivered his mes-
sage in person. "It was unfor-
tunate that John's schedule
prevented him from being
present, because when he
accused the board and its staff
of actions that were morally
unacceptable regarding tax
funds, it would have been nice
to have a dialogue in which
we could have explained our
actions. Perhaps he wasn't
truly interested in a dialogue."
"I think it's irresponsible
on his part to send a letter to
the Board of County

meeting on the budget without

Holloway said Wednesday.
"He's accused us of being irre-
sponsible in the past for not
spending enough on capital
improvements. ... Now it
seems like we're being penal-
ized for doing our jobs."
Boyle said Crawford's pro-
posed cuts would have been
negligible to the taxpayers,
and would have harmed the
county's ability to fund its
state-mandated capital
improvement plan.
"Cutting taxes is very easy,
and it's popular," he said. "You
just say, 'Instead of 7.2, let's
make it 6. Yeah, we're heroes!'
The bad part is, figuring out
how you're going to serve the
people. We've cut taxes each
year. Now, are they as much as
people would like to see? No,
they never will be. But we're
going in the right direction."

Fernandina Beach
Commissioners unanimously
approved a final budget of $92
million for fiscal year 2008-9
at' a special.meeting Sept. 22.
A final property tax roll-
back ratc of 3.98?3 mills was
also adopted, with a voter-
approved debt of 0.2336 mills,
for a total combined rate of
4.2209. Last year the rollback
rate was 3.8359.

commended Zev Cohen, saying
it did a "really good job" on the
Front Street plan because it also
"kept the essence" of the origi-
nal waterfront design by local
architect John Cotner. Mom-
berger said the Zev Cohen plan-
ners "hybridized" two of the
city's original plans to come up
with its own plan for the water-
The plan could be amended
to incorporate other ideas. For
example, Commissioner Eric
Childers suggested the plan
make Ash and Alachua streets
one-way also to improve the traf-
fic pattern. Ash would be one-
way westbound while Alachua
would beone-way eastbound.
Momberger noted that a
comprehensive master plan
should be developed for the
waterfront, an idea echoed by
others who attended the meet-
ing, including Historic District
Council Chair Suanne Thamm.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor after the meeting said
he had "a couple of people in
mind" staff to act as
coordinator of the multifaceted
downtown waterfront project.
Zev Cohen, said Czymbor, could
also do part of the oversight,
depending on its scope of serv-
The $3.5 million, according
to Zev Cohen's figures, would
include site preparation,
sewage, drainage, water distri-
bution, road construction and
landscaping for Front Street.
The number also includes
upgrades to Alachua, Broome
and Centre-streets at their junc-
tions with Front Street The cost
for railroad crossings was not
included in the total.
Funding options for the proj-
ect, according to .Czymbor,
could include grants, money
from the city's general fund and
developer/property owner shar-
ing of costs.

Lane Development Co.,
which had been meeting with
city staff over the past year in
the hope of building a mixed-
use development downtown,
was not mentioned in the plans.
Lane was slated to provide con-
struction and some funding for
the Front Street project.
According to Lou Goldman,
chair of the Waterfronts Florida
Partnership Committee, Lane's
project has been put on hold
because the company was not,
able to get investors on board.
Goldman at one time had a con-
tract to sell downtown water-
front property to Lane, but said
the transaction never went
through, although Lane did pur-
chase Standard Marine and
waterfront property owned by
the Tringalis.
A recent Florida Supreme
Court decision rejecting voter
approval for tax increment
bonds would also make it pos-
sible for the city to get that type
of financing more quickly, said
Czymbor. The city commission
could decide to obligate tax
increment financing within the
downtown Community Redeve-
lopment Area to pay off bonds
for the construction project.
Czymbor said funding
options for the project would go
before the commission once Zev
Cohen starts refining the project
for more precise costs.
Sun shelters to be placed
over the wooden benches along

the waterfront were also dis-
cussed, but the topic was a
touchy one and there was not
a consensus as to which design
by local architect Randy Rice
was appropriate.
Community Development
Director Marshall McCrary
blamed himself for miscommu-
nication between the Water-
fronts Florida Partnership Com-
mittee and the Historic District
Council, which had both been
asked to choose a sun shelter
design. Both committees be-
lieved they had a final say, and
each chose a different design -
but McCrary said that ulti-
mately the HDC had the final

The world's the limit

for local businesses

Earlier this year, the Nassau County
Economic Development Board applied for and
received a grant from Enterprise Florida, Inc.,
to begin Nassau County's first-ever interna-
tional trade development program. Called the
"International Business Expansion Initiative,"
the program is designed to help local compa-
nies export their products or services to mar-
kets outside the United States, and to assist
other companies in importing goods or servic-
es that they can use to help them become
more competitive in our domestic market. The
goals of the program are to create new jobs in
our community and to attract new capital
Our first order of business was to survey
Nassau County manufacturers and service
providers to get an idea of the breadth and.
scope of current international trade activities.
We invited 315 Nassau County businesses to
participate in our survey. Out of that group,
105 companies (33.3 percent) completed the
survey, which was conducted by telephone
and the Internet during the months of July and
August. The survey represented a broad range
of companies. In all, companies did business in
16 different industrial sectors ranging from
retail/commercial to professional services to
manufacturing to construction to hospitality.
Fifteen percent of the surveyed companies
indicated that they currently export their prod-
ucts or services. An exported product is gen-
erally easier to track than a service is, since"
many services are "exported" electronically
using tools like the Internet. We asked product
exporters '(8 percent of our survey sample)
where their international customers were
located. More than half 6f them cited markets
in North America (Canada and Mexico) and
South America. Following cjose behind were
customers in the Caribbean, Europe and the
Middle East; Nearly three-quarters of all
exporters in our survey expressed an interest
in finding new foreign markets for their prod-
ucts or services. They were particularly inter-
ested to explore new markets in Asia,
Australia/New Zealand, the Caribbean,
Central America, Europe and the Middle East.
Another 7 percent of surveyed companies
indicated that they currently export services
to customers outside the United States.
Service exporters also represented a broad
.range of business sectors from marketing/
market research to education to'construction
and real estate to accounting to tourism and
hospitality. Three quarters of service export-
ers were interested in developing new markets
particularly in Europe, South America, the
Caribbean and Australia/New Zealand.
On the import side; 12.4 percent of the
companies we suriveyed'said.that they import heee Nassau County :


Steve Rieck

firms import products and
services that add value to
what they sell in our domes-
tic markets. Sixty percent of
product importers import
finished goods, while the
rest are evenly split between
importing raw materials,
component parts or
processes materials.
Products are imported large-
ly from Europe, Asia, Central
America and Africa. Services
are imported by tourism/
hospitality businesses and
education/research enter-

So about a quarter of the companies that
we surveyed are presently engaged in either
importing or exporting or both. Based on
other data from our survey, we found that 41
percent of non-exporters believe that their
firms are too small to export. Finding prospec-
tive customers or clients was considered a,
challenge for 14 percent of those companies
not presently exporting. But 40 percent of all
survey respondents expressed an interest in
learning what the top overseas markets
are for their products or services. They told us
that access to trade leads was the most valu-
able service that we could provide for them in
the future. They also saw a need for assistance
in finding overseas agents and distributors,
and a need for more export training and coun-
An obvious question for us was, "How are
product importers and exporters shipping
their goods?" While we have a natural deep-
water port right here in Fernandina Beach,
only a small number of the Nassau County-
based exporters we surveyed dse our port to
ship their products: Exporters who don't use
the Port of Fernandina use a variety of other
ports along the eastern seaboard. The Port of
Fernandina has good service to Bermuda,
Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Central and South
America, but shippers who serve customers in
other parts of the world have to find alterna-
tives elsewhere. One of NCEDB's goals for the
future will be to workywith the Nassau County
Ocean Highway and Port Authority and its
port operator, Nassau Terminals/ Kinder-
Morgan, to explore ways to increase capacity
and service levels at the Port of Fernandina.
We have been encouraged by the findings
of our survey. We have a strong nucleus of
locally based companies with whom we can
grow our international trade program. For
Nassau County, it seems the world's the limit

When autumn leaves start to fall

I was driving home early one evening late
last week and I cranked down my win-
dows so that I could enjoy the first taste of
crisp autumn weather. As I approached
my neighborhood, I caught a whiff of leaves
burning somewhere in the vicinity. The mel-
low, woodsy smell was intoxicating, and the
dejA vu that accompanied it took me back to
the autumns of my childhood.
Back then, everyone raked their yards and
piled the leaves up and burned them. For
some reason, it seems that this little ritual
most often occurred in the early evenings.
Maybe it's because the winds are usually
calmer or absent that part of the day here in
the South. But being something of a romanti-
cist, I tend to think of such things in a differ-
ent light. A memory of lingering smoke of
burned oak or pecan tree leaves trailing like
incense into an evening sky that was a patch-
work quilt of pastel orange, blue, purple and
red is one of those handholds I reach out to
when I need to ground myself from time to
time. It's aquick, free trip back to a time that
was kinder, gentler and a lot less complicated.
In my neighborhood, the burning of leaves
in the evenings often was a communal event.
Someone would pile all.his leaves by the side
of the road and set fire to them. About the time
the embers matched the color of the setting
sun, other neighbors would be starting their
evening routines. Fathers would just be get-
ting home from work. Mothers would be put-
ting the finishing touches on supper and the
smell of pot roast or pork chops would drift
from kitchen windows everywhere and com-

JOE ed into the mix from nearby
television sets and every now
and then, a burst of laughter,
Joe Palmer high and merry, from a
house nearby. A fragrant,
wispy white veil of smoke connected it all.
Old Mr. Williamson, our next-door neigh-
bor, built huge leaf burn piles. He was a dap-
per, formal looking old gent who seemed
dressed up even when doing yard work.
Although he pretended to loathe children and
dogs "Pssssht!" he'd snap. "Get that dog
away from here before I trim his tail right
behind his ears!" you could always see his
eyes light up when kids ventured over in the
evening to hang out with him beside his fire.
Silly questions like, "Mr. Williamson, whatcha
doin'?" were apt to prompt responses like,
"Just getting' my fire hot enough so I can roast
me some of you young 'uns and dogs." And
then everybody would grab his or her dog by
the collar and Mr. Williamson would chortle
like it was the funniest joke he'd ever heard.
Before long, someone usually produced a
double handful of grubby marshmallows and a

couple of wire hangers and Mr. Williamson
would patiently work the wire into straight
spears and then patiently school us on how to
properly impale the marshmallows, and how
close to the fire to hold them so as to achieve
the right amount of crispy brown on the out-
side and molten creamy white on the inside.
"And don't get too close to that fire. And get a-
holt of that dog now before I dock his tail fer
'im right behind his ears." And when someone
showed up with hotdogs to roast, Mr.
Williamson waited till we were feasting on the
juicy, flame roasted franks to tell us that hot
dogs were made from the tails of dogs that
had been nipped off right behind their ears.
"Why d'ya think they call 'em hot dogs?" he'd
tease. And we fell for it every time.
Dying embers and Mr. Williamson's tall
tales gave way to full dark and Mrs.
Williamson shouting, "Yoooohoooo! Supper's
ready!" A pregnant, harvest moon rose above
the treetops and we told stories about witches
and Halloween until, one by one, all our moms
called us home for supper and the end of the
Now I'm almost as old as "old" Mr.
Williamson was then and when I smell leaves
burning in the evening, I think of him and it
makes me smile. It's said that the sense of
smell evokes the sharpest memories and emo-
tional responses in humans. I suspect it's so.
Today I'm 54. One evening last week, I was
five again.

$700 billion bailout
Almost unremarked upon in the media was
that Secretary Henry Paulson's original request
to Congress included, separate from the $700
billion bailout, that he be allowed to loot the
Exchange Stabilzation Fund (ESF) in order to pay
for an insurance scheme to support the money
market industry. The ESF was set up in the 1930s
to protect U.S. currency reserves. Secretary
Paulson wants to channel the funds into a new
scheme mirroring federal deposit insurance for
consumer bank deposits but just to protect the
money market industry. The dollar is extremely
vulnerable presently and this request is the agri-
cultural equivalent of a farmer eating his seed
The revised plan just presented to and reject-
ed by Congress contained the same request and
included a statement that it should be repaid
within five years but absent any specifics. Do
you think it will be repaid yeah, right! They'll just
extend the time or if they can, borrow the money
to pay it off and once again the taxpayer will be
hit by the loss of purchasing power consequent
upon money creation (inflation) plus paying the
The problem is credit and debt and Wall Street
and Congress both wanted to add to it but all it
would do is stave off the next crises for a while.
They're like dnug addicts: "Just one more fix and
I promise IlLquit" The method of creating-money
and debt is incestuous. The Treasury creates
bonds and the Federal Reserve creates notes. The
notes are backed by the bonds and the bonds are
redeemable by the notes. Each is valued by itself
instead of an outside asset. When the bonds
mature they're never paid off they're just
replaced by another bond with a later maturity
Both parties share the blame for the situa-
tion we're in. The Democrats forced banks to
lend to people who couldn't afford to buy real
estate. One of the chief advocates of making
mortgages available to all was, wait for it- Barney
Frank! Why did the banks do it? Because Fannie
and Freddie were there to take the mortgages off
their hands. Republicans said the free market
,would take care of everything and actively dis-
couraged regulation. But the Republicans didn't
really, mean it. If they did they'd let the busi-
nesses that made foolish decisions and invest-
ments go bankrupt.
Everything needs to reset and if there's a res-
cue plan let it be funded by the finance industry,
not carried on the backs of the taxpayers. Be
very glad.that Congress failed to pass the $700 bil-
lion bail plan. Want proof? OK, then just note
that it's those with the money and those who
deal in money who want the rescue plan.Calls to
members of Congress were running 200 to 1 for
rejection of the bailout package. In this instance,
the instincts of the American people were
absolutely right.
Here's the biblical explanation of what will
happen if the rescue scheme presently proposed,
or anything like it passes: "Out of the river there
came up seven cows, fat and sleek, and they
grazed among the reeds. After them, seven other
cows came up scrawny and very ugly and lean.
I had never seen such ugly cows in all the land of
Egypt. The lean, ugly cows ate up the seven fat
cows that came up first. But even after they ate
them, no one could tell that they had done so; they
looked just as ugly as before." (Genesis 41-21)

Baptist hospital
Recently I had to become a guest at Baptist
Medical Center Nassau. I use the word guest
because that is how everyone there made me feel.
You go feeling awful and leave feeling that you just
met many angels in disguise. I cannot praise
enough the wonderful care I received.
Thank you to all who entered room 134 from
Sept. 10-14. Nurses, doctors, aides everyone.
An extra big hug to Carol Gentry and her stu-
dents from FCCJ's nursing program. Their smiles
alone would make most feel a little better. Baptist

Being in the 21st century, I am concerned
about why we've regressed to paper and pencil

believe it when the poll workers handed nie a

Church members share memories

Remembering how God has blessed
us, bringing us through dangers seen
and unseen brings joy to our hearts
when we look where he brought us.
What we thought was little became
much in the plans of the God we served.
Giving of ourselves and our talents to
others is a very meaningful gift.
Another great service was held
Saturday evening at Mount Olive Baptist
Church in Nassauville, known better as
Historic Little Mount Olive.
Everyone was welcomed to share
their memories of the community where
they were born, lived or grew up, shar-
ing the history of rural Nassau County
from an African-American perspective in
cooperation with the Gullah Geechee
Cultural Heritage Committee of
Northeast Florida. ,
Queen Quet, chieftess of the Gullah
Geechee Nation, led the opening prayer
and libation honoring our forefathers
and foremothers as we gathered on the
grounds around the historic sign of the
Sharing their history and memories
were Dea. Leo Green, a Korean War vet-
eran, retired mill worker and our elec-
tric pump water supplier. Born in
Callahan, he moved to Yulee with his
parents and has lived there since. He
shared some of his memories of dump-.
ing turpentine, growing up without
many of the things we have today, when
the first TV came to this area, radio with
few stations, walking to school when the
roads were not paved, one-room school-
house, catching a ride to school in
Fernandina because there was no trans-
portation and how God blessed him to
get a job at the mill and take care of his
family on low wages, sharing his skills
and knowledge with others and learning

how to do things by
watching others who
had the skills.
S Sharing many simi-
lar things as Green was
Maybelle Kirkland-
SBrown. Born in
Sandhill, she moved to
O'Neil with her par-
ents. They both
NOW AND remembered the out-
THEN door toilet, no running
water, kerosene lamps,
wood stoves and the
Maybelle best wallpaper in town,
Kirkland newspaper with home-
made paste. They
always had plenty to eat and a place to
stay. Kirkland-Brown remembers her
first teacher, Ms. Hooper, a family mem-
ber of the historic Hooper family of
Little Mt. Olive, Nassauville.
She remembered having a vote in
naming Bryant Academy School after
the principal, James B. Bryant, being
transported to school by Porter Prince
in his Model-T Ford, going to church at
O'Neil Memorial Baptist Church with
the Rev. L.S. Morrison, his wife and
their children and enjoying warm goat
milk and cookies. The Rev. Morrison
purchased the first church bus, making
sure children from all around Nassau
County went to church, always teaching
and preaching the word of God.
They remembered taking baths in tin
tubs, washing clothes on a rubbing
board with homemade lye soap, having
a garden to feed the family, a draw-
bridge and three stores with a caution
light in O'Neil.
Dea. Larry Coleman, a realtor and
president of the O'Neil Cemetery
Association, gave us some much-needed

history and information about the ceme-
tery the boundaries where the land
came from with complete survey of the
area, how many bodies are possibly
buried there and how and what to pay
when we are buried there. He will be
sending out letters soon concerning
meeting as well as clean-up day. He
reminded us of how important it is to
take care of what we have.
Some of the trustees for the
Cemetery Association are Coleman,
William Jefferson, David Ferguson and
Dea. Vincient Calhoun. These are the
men to contact for information about
being buried in the O'Neil Cemetery,
but Coleman has history information.
The Gullah Geechee Cultural
Heritage Committee of Northeast
Florida is making plans for its next his-
torical celebration. Call William
Jefferson, author and genealogy, at
(904) 502-1992 for information and to be
part of the next celebration.
Many thanks to Glenda S. Jenkins for
your help in putting these programs
together; Laura Rhodes and Gloria Jean
Thomas and your committee for the
food. We continue to give God the glory,
honor and praise for all he has done in
keeping us and bringing us to where we
are today.
Birthday wishes to Betty Veal,
Emory Wingard II, Robert Blue Sr.,
Tina Nicole Johnson, Brenda Hooper,
Taylor Sanders, Daniel Brown,
Keoundra Johnson, Kevin Brown,

Don't Put Your Trust In

Things Of This World

Young children seem to have the utmost trust in their parents.
For instance, they know that whenever they are not
feeling well, their parents are there to comfort them
and do whatever is necessary to make them better.
A parent's love is special, and it see s that there is
nothing that they would not do for their children.
As adults, we should remember that all things of this
world are temporary and that there is nothing we can
truly depend on or be absolutely sure of. A loved one
passing away, or finances being low, or a serious ,
illness could turn our world upside down in an
instant. However, we should take heart; there is good
news: we are God's children, and His love for us is
even greater than that of our parents'. And although
it takes enormous courage to put our complete trust inr
God, we must believe that He wants only what is gooc i
for us. What is required of us is to see God's work
in everything we do, and develop perfect trust to acctpi
the trials of his life, and to know that with whatever
difficulties we are faced, God will not abandon us.
The first step in increasing our trust in God is to .
thank Him daily for His many blessings and to
always go to Him with our anxieties.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

FRIDAY, October 3,2008/News-Leader


Finding life on both sides of the fence

T he sound of rolling plastic
wheels wobbling down my
dirt driveway filled the
morning air. The routine
was a familiar one. It was Friday,
trash day where I live. I don't know
about you, but there's something
about rolling that can toward the
road each week that reminds me
that the weekend is near.
Actually, for me, Friday's my day
off. Though I haven't thought about
it much, somehow the sound of wob-
bling wheels brings with it a sense of
rest. Either way, this particular
morning was pretty much like all the
others; until I got past the trees, that
There, racing down the road, side
by side, was a white pickup truck
and a large male deer with a full set

of antlers. To make
things even more
interesting, the deer
happened to be on
my side of the road
and running right at
me. I think he was
as surprised as I
was when I stepped
out from behind the
PULPIT trees rolling my big
NOTES blue trashcan.
Immediately he
bolted across the
Pastor road, just barely
Rob Goyette touching the front of
the truck, and dart-
ed toward the woods. Little did he
know about the black wrought iron
fence he was getting ready to run
into. I wouldn't have believed it if I

hadn't seen it with my own eyes. He
was running so fast that somehow he
crashed right through the fence and
landed on the other side. For a split
second, I thought he was dead, but
suddenly he jumped up, shook his
head and ran off. And there I stood,
holding my blue trashcan in disbelief
of what had just happened.
As I walked across the street to
look at the bent metal rods and
brown fur he had left behind, I could-
n't help but feel sorry for hini. I
knew he had to be in a lot of pain.
Yet, somehow, he had managed to
get up, shake himself off and get on
with his life.
I'm sure, like the deer that day,
most of us would agree that some-
times life is just hard. I mean, think
about it. That poor buck was simply

eating his morning breakfast when
something suddenly startled him. In
an attempt to get away he ran down
the road only to find himself cut off
by a wide-eyed human dragging a
blue box on wheels. And, if all that
wasn't enough, after risking life and
limb to cross the street he ran slap
into something he didn't even know
was there. It's amazing, isn't it? One
minute everything is going well and
the next we're covered up in pain
and confusion.
Now it's a bit of a tough word but
if you can hear it, you need to.
Sometimes we just have to get up,
shake ourselves, and move on.
That's right, I know it hurts, trust me
I've been there, but it is what it is.
Life is too short to spend it on the
ground swallowed up with all the bad

things that have happened to us.
Besides, you've already come
through so much, why stop now?
The Lord, through the Prophet
Isaiah, chapter 43:18-19, has this to
say: "Remember not the former
things neither consider the things of
old. Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth; shall you
not know it? I will even make a way,
in the wilderness, and rivers in the
As for me, though-I've had to
walk with a limp every now and then,
my life is better than it's ever been.
I'm sure glad by God's grace I got up
and kept on moving.

Go green

For the News-Leader

It's pretty hard to ignore
the environmental crisis our
world faces today. You've
probably already begun alter-
ing your behavior in response,
whether by recycling, planting
trees or simply driving less.
Sometimes environmental-
ly friendly alternatives are
more expensive, which makes
them harder to manage on a
tight budget. But there are
many, often unexpected, ways
to save money while being
"green." Here are a few tips:
Kill energy vampires.
Have you ever noticed how
many appliances and electron-
ic devices in your home burn
lights or digital displays even
after they're turned off?
They're called energy vam-
pires because they suck ener-
gy whenever they're plugged
in even in standby mode;
about 5 percent of your
monthly electricity bill, by
some estimates.
Energy vampires include
televisions, DVD players,
stereos, computers, micro-
waves, cell phone and iPod
,chargers (regardless of
whether devices are fully
charged or even attached) -
the list goes on. Try plugging
these devices in only as need-
ed or attaching them to power
strips so you can turn them all
off at once every night. Hint:
Satellite- or cable-based televi-
sion DVR recorders may have
to be plugged in separately to
operate properly.
It's the water. Besides

seem to put the ball away at opportune
times and had trouble with our defense
(blocking), especially in game one.
"Bolles has great talent, as do we, but
we will work on upping the pace of our
game for the next month to accomplish
our team's season goal, which is to win the

paced game. Itwas a good gamefor us to
play to see where wp stack up against one
of the better teams in the area.
"We have some things to work on, but
overall, I was pleased with the way we
played. We had some big blocks and great

Spleen injury sidelines Packers' cornerback

Green Bay Packers' cornerback
Al Harris has a sustained a lac-
eration of the spleen and could
be out for a large part of the
season. Harris was injured in the first
quarter of Green Bay's loss to the Dallas
Cowboys last week. Harris left the game
in the first quarter after he collided with
Packers' linebacker A.J. Hawk. Harris
went to the lockerroom ip the second
quarter with what team officials
described initially as cramping.
After the game Harris had blood in,
his urine and complained of abdominal
pain. A CT scan revealed that the spleen
had been lacerated and he had internal
For now he has been placed in "obser-
vation status" and surgery is not antici-
pated at this point. A repeat scan has
been scheduled to verify that he is not
.having progressive bleeding. Harris
missed his first game Sunday when the
Packers faced Tampa Bay.
Tampa Bay went through a very simi-
lar situation just last year with quarter-
back Chris Simms. Simms, the son of for-.
mer Giant Phil Simms, took several hard
hits during a loss last year to the
Carolina Panthers.
During that game, Simms was taken
off the field and given IV fluids for what
was initially thought to be dehydration.
After the game, Simms continued to
report feeling weak and having abdomi-
nal pain and was taken to a nearby
Tampa hospital where it was discovered

She too had ruptured his
spleen. He required
emergency surgery due
and had to have his
S spleen removed.

Washington Redskins' defensive end
Jason Taylor missed last weekend's
game against Dallas. While that may be
bad, it certainly could have been worse.
Taylor was kicked in the calf during the
second quarter of the previous game
against the Arizona Cardinals. He was
able to finish out the game, but later that
night his pain significantly increased and
he began to have numbness throughout
the extremity.
At 3 a.m., he went to Virginia Hospital
Center, where it was found his calf had
filled with blood to the point where inter-

nal pressures had begun to cut off the
blood supply to his leg. This condition,.'
known as a compartment syndrome, car
threaten the survival of the limb and
emergency surgery is required. Doctors
opened a six-inch incision into the leg,
relieving the internal pressure and drain-
ing the blood-filled compartment
Redskins' certified athletic trainer Bubba
Tyer commented afterwards that it was.
the first such injury he's had in his 37
seasons with the Redskins. There had
been five similar injuries league-wide in
the past eight years.
The injury ended his consecutive
games streak at 133, the seventh longest
among active players. Always a competi-
tor, Taylor at first wanted to wait to.seeif
the situation would improve with time,
but doctors convinced him otherwise...
"I'm a hardhead," Taylor said. "I want-
ed to wait a couple hours but they said
'You don't have a couple hours. You
should have done it an hour ago.' Time
was of the essence and we needed to
hurry it up and do it right away."

School employees getting fit


Teachers in Nassau County
are staying after school these
days, but they don't seem to
mind. Thanks to a wellness
grant from the Department of
Health, Nassau County school
employees are taking advan-
tage of fitness programs being
offered at their schools. One of
the programs is Zumba.
"Zumba is a dance fitness
class that integrates worldwide
rhythms intQ easy-to-follow.
dance moves," said Toni \Web-i
ber, a kindergarten teacher at
Yulee Primary School and one
of three trained fitness instruc-
tors running classes for school
board employees. "The founder
of Zumba is from Colombia, so
it has a Latin flavor."
In addition to Zumba, the
employee wellness program
also offers walking and Taking
Off Pounds Sensibly groups.
"Funding through the grant
is providing sound equipment,
walking sticks, stretch bands,
pedometers and other materials
to encourage physical activity,
said Kimberly Clemons, proj-
ect manager for the Office of
Intervention and Prevention for
the Nassau County School
District "And to help promote
and develop activities, a well-
ness champion is being desig-
nated at 18 sites."

The free programs are held
right after school for employ-
ees. YPS programs are at 3 p.m.
Tuesday; 3 p.m. Wednesday
at Yulee Elementary School;
3:30 p.m. Thursday at Emma
Love Hardee Elementary,
Southside Elementary and
Callahan Elementary schools.
Plans are to hire another,
instructor to offer more pro-
grams in Callahan and Bryce-
ville and an exercise class in
Fernandina Beach.
"We are trying to accom-
modate the schedules of ele-
mentary, secondary ad.-dli--..
trict staff employees because
of our different release times,"
Clemons said.
The grant also allows for
health screenings for choles-
; terol, diabetes, blood pressure
and more, which have already
taken place with more planned
by December, according to
"Employees can get tips on
health-related topics such as
nutrition, diet and fitness,"
Clemons said. "And through
participation in an online Health
Risk Assessment, each employ-
ee can receive an overall well-
ness score with specific feed-
back on how to improve overall
"So we are very excited
about this grant and the bene-
fits we hope it will have for all of
our district employees."

"The grant allows me (a
teacher) to teach to other teach-
ers or any school board employ-
ee on site right after school,"
Webber said. "How convenient
and free for employees.
"Everyone knows the bene-
fits of exercise. It's just finding
the time or money or motiva-
tion to do it Zumba is motivat-
ing. I have never been more
excited about fitness.
"Zumba brings all people
(black, white, Hispanic, pears,
apples, athletes, fat, skinny ...)
together for a fun exercise
class. try to buiid, an atmos-
phere that is .on-judgmental
and fun so everyone can have a
great workout regardless of age
or ability."
"We hope the Zumba par-
ticipants experience such short-
term benefits as exercise, fun
and fellowship," Clemons said.'
"So many times when staff
members are together it is a
situation where a deadline
needs to be met or an issue
needs to be addressed. In
Zumba classes employees can
enjoy the upbeat music that
makes you want to dance and

The 72-hole, stroke-play
tournament at St Johns will
be contested between roughly
80 golfers with the top quali-

fiers advancing to the second
stage of competition. St
Johns was selected by the
PGA Tour as one of just 11
golf courses across the U.S.

competition. This will be the
fourth time St. Johns hosts a
Q-School event

out of a pine forest, the
course offers a great test for
every skill level. From the
championship tees, the
course is a decidedly robust

with occasionally arduous
wind patterns.
The PGA Tour qualifying
system dates back to 1965

Water's cleaner, cooler now

n early afternoon flood tide will
beckon area sea trout fishermen as
action continues to improve with
cleaner water conditions and cooler
water temperatures. A flood tide this week-
end arrives at 12:43 p.m. Saturday and speck
fishermen will be able to cast their favorite
topwater plug over flooded marsh flats or oys-
An overlooked sea trout hot spot is the
southeast corner of Nassau Sound, where a
huge flat is bordered by marsh and a shell
bottom. Aflood tide should find nice schools
,of mullet working the shallow edges, where
sea trout weighing to five pounds will be wait-
ing in ambush.
Tiger Basinis also giving up its share of
sea trout during the last of the flood and the
first few hours of the falling tide. Look for the
schools of mullet working the shallow edges
of marsh points and flooded oysterbars for
better-than-average size fall run specks.
Redfish are running at the St. Marys
south jetty rocks during the last hour of the
flood tide and the last few hours of the falling
tide. Low tide arrives at 6:54 p.m. at the
mouth of the Amelia River. Be sure to be
anchored just south of the tip of the St"
Marys jetty rocks two hours before low tide
arrives. Fish on the bottom with cut whiting
or fresh large shrimp.
Flounder fishing has been red hot during
the last few days with some of the best action
coming from boat docks at low tide. Fish a
1/4-ounce led head jig tipped with a bullhead
minnow or finger mullet slowly along the bot-
tom and close to dock pilings.

Offshore drift fishing
'boats should do well this
weekend for a variety of bot-
tom species, including red
snapper, gag grouper, black
sea bass, triggerfish, amber-
jack and the occasional
cobia. Be sure to spend
more time fishing than
burning that expensive boat
ON THE fuel. Check out the many
IATERD close-to-shore fish havens, .
WAITER including the Nassau Live
TERRY Bottom, KBY reef and FA
LACOSS fish havens.
LACSS Area bas4 fishermen are
the col loving this fall weather with
the cool air temperatures and.falling water
temperatures. Look for excellent bass action
coming from Lofton, Thomas and Boggy
creeks this weekend while working topwater
minnow-type plugs close to creek mouths -
and shallow sloughs in the creeks. Fish the
last few hours of the falling tide for large-
mouth bass weighing to five pounds.
Remember there is a lag time in tie tidts for
these brackish tidal-rivers. While a low tide
arrives'at 6 a.ih litihe ANmelia Rivr,'16W-
tide will actually arrive at 10 a.m. backing
these fishy creeks. "..

About the
Erik Weihenmayer was
an adventurous, athletic boy
who, because of a rare
degenerative eye condition,
gradually lost his vision. By
age 13, he was totally blind.
Now an adult, he has
astounded the world with
his mountain climbing
achievements and his suc-
cess as an inspirational
speaker, author and trainer.
His father Ed, who lives
on Amelia Island, intro-
duced his son to hiking by
walking behind and putting
his hand on Erik's neck to
guide him through rocky
trails and encouraging him
to push the perceived
boundaries of what a blind
person can do.
Today Ed is Erik's full-
time business manager, hav-
ing left his position as
human resources director of
Salomon Brothers in 1995 to
raise funds for his son's first
big climb. He appears
briefly in "BlindSight" and is
credited as its co-producer.
Other productions
include "Farther Than the
Eye Can See," the documen-
tary of Erik Weihenmayer's
historic Everest climb on
May 25, 2001.
Weihenmayer's second
book, The Adversity
Advantage, with co-author
business guru Paul Stoltz,
was released by Simon &
Schuster in 2007. His mem-
oir, Touch the Top of the
World, has been made into a

'g QAht'A true story of

'lindsi~1L vision and courage

For the News-Leader
"BlindSight," the award-winning
film of Erik Weihenmayer's climb with
six blind Tibetan teenagers to 21,500
feet on the north face of Mt. Everest,
opens tonight at Fernandina's Carmike
Island 7 theater.
Considered by their culture to be
possessed by evil spirits, spat upon in
public and even hidden away by some
of their parents, the teens were res-
cued by Braille Without Borders, a new
school for the blind in Lhasa, Tibet.
They learned to read Chinese, Tibetan
and English in Braille, among other
The school's founder, a blind
German adventurer named Sabriye
Tenberken, invited Weihenmayer -
who in May 2001 became the only
blind man in history to reach the
summit of Mt. Everest to teach her
'students mountaineering and rock

"She used our climb to inspire her
students to believe that blind people
can accomplish big things, that they
should hold their heads high as they
walk through Lhasa, even though the
culture there taught that their blind-
ness was due to evil spirits caused by
sins in a past life, or even by sins of
their ancestors or family," said
"Sabriye sent me the most com-
pelling letter I've ever received,
inviting me to come visit her school ...
I re-proposed to her that she invite a
few of her more athletic blind students
on a trek to Lhakpa Ri, a 23,000-foot
peak in the shadows of Everest ...
'BlindSight' is the story of that historic
climb." '"
In the fall of 2004, following an ardu-
ous three-week trek,'the teenagers
stood together at the 21,500 foot
Advanced Base Camp, higher than any

team of blind people in history.
"Because of their obvious suffering
higher on the mountain, near the end, I
wasn't sure that our idea of adventure
as a character-builder had been the
perfect idea." said Weihenmayer. "But
when I was leaving Tibet, Kyila, whose
English was best and who spoke for
the group, asked me when I would
come back so they could climb again
with me.
"'Teasing them, I said, 'I didn't think
you guys liked climbing,' to which they
responded in unison, 'We love climb-
ing.' So I countered, 'But you all are
blind; you can't climb.' Again, in cho-
rus, 'We are blind, but we can do every-
thing. Come back. You'll see!'"'' -

mentary, which premiered at the
Toronto and London film festivals to
uproarious standing ovations, then was

and 'Beyond

the Call'

The Florida Community
College Betty P. Cook Nassau
Center opens the Courtyard
Nights season with a special film
presentation of "Beyond the
Call" on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the
Nassau Room.
"Beyond the Call," created by
brothers Adrian and Roko Belic,
is about Ed Artis, James Laws
and Walt Ratterman, three mid-
dle-aged men whose idea of
adventure is taking desperately
needed food and medicine into
the world's most forbidding yet
naturally beautiful places, often
at the front lines of war.
Following the motto of "High
Adventure and Service to
Humanity," their specialty is
going where death from land-
mines, bullets or bombs is as fre-
quent as death from hunger, dis-
ease or the elements. They help
out in places that other aid
organizations deem too danger-
ous. One of the most honored
documentaries in recent memo-
ry, "Beyond the Call" has
screened at more than 100 film
festivals on five continents and
