Obama win
News Leader
Neil Frink, who grew up in Old
Town and graduated in 1959 from Peck
High School, had this to say on the
presidential election of Barack Obama:
"It's a great thing for America, the
nation and the world, not just a step for-
ward for the first African-American
president. People all around the world
are comfortable with him. ... Barack
Obama is just the man at this time to
pull us all together.
"It was a very moving moment for
me and my wife (when Obama won
the election)," said Frink. "We shed
some tears. Young people have no
understanding of what it was like to
grow up with segregation. ... It's a new
day for America and for the world."
Willie Mae Ashley, who both attend-
ed and taught at Peck High School,
said she is "overwhelmed and over-
joyed" at the way the country came
together to elect Barack Obama as
president, and thanked "the people
that we will never see and never knew
have had a part" of the election.
'There are still uncharted roads,
mountains to climb and miles to go, but
we can do it as a people," said Ashley.
"God put us here to do it as a country
... we will get back to where we need to
be as a country.... It's wonderful. It's
almost beyond comprehension. I thank
the indescribable Creator for allowing
this day in history to come."
Community activist Herman
Springs and his wife, Deborah, were
excited and happy about Obama's his-
toric win.
"The bottom line is that I think the
election represents a new change for
America," said Herman Springs. "It
vindicated some of the things that hap-
pened to those that came before us,

'It's wonderful. It's almost beyond
comprehension. I thank the indescribable
Creatorfor allowing this day in

history to come.'

'It's not the color of the person in ithe White
House, but the character and spirit.
America put him there.'

'I have a feeling he'll be able to bring
the best out in people.'

Numbers released last week by the
Florida Department of Law Enfor-
cement indicate crime in Fernandina
Beach has decreased this year, while
Nassau County as a whole saw a slight
increase in certain crimes.
According to the numbers listed in
the FDLE 2008 Uniform Crime Report,
the county had fewer forcible rapes,
assaults, burglaries and vehicle thefts
in the first six months of 2008 than in
the first six months of 2007. But the
number of robberies increased by
about 28 percent, and the number of
reported larcenies increased by about
15 percent
The total number of reported
crimes that fall into one of those seven
categories was 1,326 halfway through
2007; by the end of June this year, 1,336
such crimes had been reported, a 0.8
percent increase.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said statistics can be mis-
leading, particularly in a county like
Nassau that is still relatively rural.
"Say if we didn't have any murders
last year, but we have one this year,
well we're up 100 percent," he said.
"Sometimes it's not fair to a smaller
community... but this report does give
us an idea of the numbers and what's
.going on, where crime trends are run-
ring in our community."
The news was significantly better
for Fernandina Beach, at least as far as
the numbers are concerned; the over-
all rate of the crimes tracked decreased
by about 16 percent from last year to
this year.

Hurley credits the arrests of "serial

offenders" as part of the rea-
son for the decrease.
"I can tell you that we have
made several arrests of indi-
viduals responsible for serial
offenses," Hurley said. "When
one person goes on a spree ...
and you locate them and clear
those cases, you typically see
a reduction in crime until
someone else comes along
and is as prolific."
Like Seagraves, Hurley
also cautioned that the statis-
tics released are to be taken
with a grain of salt; many
things can affect the numbers
of the crimes reported.
So far, neither the city of
Fernandina Beach nor the rest
of the county seems to have
suffered an overall increase in
crime as the nation's econo-
my continues to go south.
"I think if there's any rela-
tionship to the economy, we
haven't felt it yet," Hurley said.
"But it's true that despite the
best efforts of law enforce-
ment, the economy often
drives the crime rate."
One of the most common
crimes in Fernandina Beach
is also one of the most pre-
ventable; larceny to motor
vehicles increased by 100 per-
cent, according to Hurley. But
very often, vehicles are not
broken into but rather just
opened because they have

has also been beset by techni-

The ordinance was post-
poned in September after a

ty's voting machines that
would have prevented a
required referendum on the
issue. According to Supervisor
of Elections Vicki Cannon, the
software used by the voting

The language for the
annexation by referendum,
according to City Attorney
Tammi Bach, requires more
than 28 characters.
Bach says the city, rather
than appealing the final order,
will write a new ordinance to
avoid protracted litigation. The
petition would have been dif-
ficult to appeal, she said,
because it is a unique situation
and there is no previous case
law to look at.
Because of the lengthy noti-
fication process, said Bach, the
ordinance will not be ready to
go before commissioners
again until at least December.
Notice must once again be
given to residents within the
annexation area, and two pub-
lic hearings must be sched-
uled before the ordinance goes
before the city commission for
approval. City commissioners

been left unlocked.
In a statement issued last
week, Hurley reminded resi-
dents to keep valuables out of
sight or, if practical, to remove
them from the vehicle and to
keep unattended vehicles
locked "at all times."
"That has been the trend,"
Hurley said of suspects walk-
ing through neighborhoods
and rifling through unlocked
vehicles, not bothering to
break into those with locked
doors. "These are car burgla-
ries where you're giving some-
one access to the vehicle with-
out any work at all."
According to the report,
the city had 25 percent fewer
incidents of aggravated assault
from last year to this year, 35
percent fewer burglaries and
about a 3 percent reduction in
the number of larcenies.
Hurley said it's important
for law enforcement officials to
track the numbers, but he cau-
tioned it's also important for
residents to remember there
is only so much control offi-
cers have over the crime rate.
"I don't take too much cred-
it for positive gains and I don't
want to take too much of a hit
for negative gains," he said.
"We are actively analyzing the
data, we're trying to identify
crime trends and we're trying
to put our people in a position

Why poppiesfor Veterans Day?
COLE T'IT B CII --..-- Fields," Michael replied with her own
or e, Ne,. s l.cader 'n Flanders Fields the poem:

The history of the poppy goes back to
World War 1. Wild poppies flower when
other plants in their direct neighbor-
hood are dead. Their seeds can lie on the
ground for years, and only when there are
no more competing flowers or shrubs in
the vicinity will the seeds sprout.
There was plenty of rooted tip soil on
the battlefield of the Western Front; in fact
the whole front consisted of churned up
soil. The poppy of the fields of France grew
with a freshness and strength untouched
by the strife surrounding it, they grew
abundantly in the fields and cemeteries of
Verdun and Chateau-Thierry.
The red poppy was first described as a
flower of remembrance by Col. John
McCrea, who went to France in World
War I as a Canadian military surgeon.
In May 1915, with the picture of white
crosses in the fields of blood red pop-
pies, Col. McCrae wrote his poem "In
Flanders Field." Around him the red pop-
pies blossomed like no one had ever seen
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
to you from failing hands we throw
the torch; be yours to hold it high
ifye break faith with us who die
we shall not sleep, though poppies grow
in Flanders Fields.

John McCrae died of pneumonia and
meningitis while he was still working in a
field hospital, during the last year of the
war; he was 45 years old. He was buried in
a cemetery overlooking the English
Channel, as if keeping a watchful eye on the
poppy fields of Flanders. He never new

McCrae's poem was a canteen worker in
New York, Moina Michael. Michael, who
later became known as the Poppy Lady,
tirelessly campaigned to get the poppy
adopted as a national symbol of remem-
brance in the United States. It was as a
result of her effort the poppy became an
international symbol of remembrance. In

We cherish too, the poppy red
that grows on fields where valor led;
it seems to signal to the skies
that the blood of heroes never dies.
In September 1920 the American
Legion was the first national organization
to adopt the poppy as its memorial flower.
In 1924 the American Legion turned over
the full responsibility of this vital program
to the American Legion Auxiliary.
The single poppies are handmade by
hospitalized and disabled veterans, pro-
viding financial and therapeutic benefits,
and the donations received in return for
these poppies are used for the rehabilita-
tion of our veterans.
The poppy itself continues to serve as
a perpetual tribute to those who have given
their lives for our nation's freedom.
Approximately 25 million Americans wear
Legion and Auxiliary poppies contribut-
ing nearly $2 million for the rehabilitation
and well being of disabled veterans. The
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 54 encour-
ages everyone to support our troops.
Veterans Day, Nov. 11, next Tuesday, is
the day that we ensure veterans know how
much we appreciate the sacrifices they
have made in their lives and for their ded-
ication and loyalty to the service of their
country, and our freedom.

Armistice Day

to Vetera
Veterans Day is the only fed-
eral holiday and day of remem-
brance which commemorates
both the living and the departed
who joined the military pledging
allegiance to defend the
Constitution of the United States
of America.
Sometimes to fully appreci-
ate the events of today, we need
to turn back the clock and see
what influences and events
affected our ancestors so deter-
minedly that they would set
aside one day out of 365 to
honor our valiant service mem-
bers. For this, we return to
America's history books.
Near the end of the Civil War,
President Abraham Lincoln
reminded the nation of its obli-
gations to its veterans, "... Let
us strive on to finish the work
we are in, to bind up the nation's
wounds, to care for him who
shall have borne the battle and
for his widow and his orphan..."
Another influence was World
War I. World leaders had hopes
it would be the end to major con-
flicts around the world. For this
reason they designated the 11lth
hour (11 a.m.) on the 1lth day of
the 11th month (November 11)
in 1918 as Armistice Day; it com-
memorated the end of World
War I. To memorialize this
event, unknown soldiers were
buried in the highest places of
honor across the Atlantic. For
England it would be
Westminster Abbey, which eulo-
gized its unknown dead, and for
France the Arc de Triomphe. It
was during these ceremonies
Armistice Day would first be
known to the world.
In 1921, the U.S. laid to rest
on a Virginia hillside overlook-
ing the city of Washington, D.C.
its unknown hero. This site
today is known as the "Tomb of
the Unknowns" at Arlington
National Cemetery. In 1926 an
act of Congress officially desig-
nated November 11 as Armistice
Day for Americans.
Unfortunately, "The War to
End all Wars" would not be the
last. World War II began in 1939,
followed by the Korean War in
1950 and hopes for an endless

What's the first thing that

This is why programs such
as "Vets in the Classroom" are
so important. Many military
service organizations have ded-
icated thousands of hours in our
classrooms. They teach flag eti-
quette and the true meaning of
the colors: red for valor or brav-
ery; white for purity and good-
ness; and blue for justice and
fairness. They teach the true
meaning of the Pledge of
Allegiance, our national promise
of loyalty.
The following tribute, writ-
ten in 1988 by then Cadet Major
Kelly Strong, AF JR. ROTC of
Homestead, seems to very clear-
ly sum up the thoughts many
will have on Veterans Day:
"I watched the flag pass by
one day. It fluttered in the
breeze. A young marine saluted
it, and then he stood at ease. I
looked at him in uniform so
young, so tall, so proud with hair
cut square and eyes alert. He'd
stand out in any crowd'."i
thought how many men like him
had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers' tears? How
many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea? How
many foxholes were soldiers'
graves? No, freedom is not free.
I heard the sound of Taps on a
night when everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play and
felt a sudden chill. I wondered
just how many times that Taps
had meant 'Amen' when a flag
had draped a coffin of a brother
or a friend. I thought of all the
children, of the mothers and the
wives, of fathers, sons and hus-
bands with interrupted lives. I
thought about a graveyard at
the bottom of the sea, of
unmarked graves in Arlington.
No ... freedom is not free."
November has many days
when events occur involving our
veterans. There's recognition of
Wounded Warrior Day on Nov.
8 and on Nov. 10 the U.S. Marine
Corps celebrates its 233rd
anniversary. On Nov. 11 not only
do we commemorate Veterans
Day, but also the 15th anniver-
sary of the Vietnam Women's
Memorial and the 26th anniver-
sary of the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial (The Wall).
Do you have a special veter-
an in your life you'll remember
on Tuesday? Even if you don't,
help support your local com-
munity in remembering all vet-
erans. Whether it's the wound-
ed warrior who might now
reside in a nursing home or
brave soldiers trying to survive
in onef four many VA hospi-
tals, please show your appreci-
ation. Donate a few hours or a
few dollars to the USO in help-
ing to entertain our troops now
and during days to come. Shake
the hand of a veteran after a
parade and tell them, thank you
for defending our rights as
American citizens. And say a
prayer for the stateside soldiers
and veterans.
For the Fernandina Beach
area, the Veterans Day parade
and barbecue, sponsored by the
American Legion Post #54, will

be held on Saturday, beginning
at 11 a.m. Join us for lots of fun
and patriotic spirit. Wave your
American flag. stomp your feet,
hoot, holler and applaud all vet-
erans they deserve your praise
on this momentous occasion.

FRl.lAY. November 7. 2008/NEWS- LEADER



I want

T he election for U.S.
president is over
and U.S. Sen.
Barack Obama won
by a significant margin.
I did not support Obama
and did what I could within
my limitations to diminish his
candidacy and generate sup-
port for U.S. Sen. John
McCain. My fellow conserva-
tives and I didn't do enough
and Sen. McCain lost the elec-
President-elect Obama ran

to supp

a brilliant campaign. He is a
very eloquent public speaker
and obviously a very smart
individual. I appreciated his
speech following McCain's
concession, when he said he
will be the president of all
Americans. I sincerely hope
he carries through on that
Barack Obama is now on
the road to becoming my pres-
ident. But he is a man I know
very little about. His experi-
ence running a business, a


city, town or a
state is non-
What I do
know of his
past troubles
S, me, particu-
larly his asso-
Scott ciations with
radical and
shadowy peo-
ple and groups such as the
Rev. Jeremiah Wright, William
Ayers, Tony Rezko and
ACORN. As president he will
take office with a large
Democratic majority in both
the House and Senate. Our
new president who in only
four years in the U.S. Senate
was voted "most liberal" by
several conservative publica-
tions will be inaugurated
Jan. 20 with both House
Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi
and Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid looking on with
their liberal agenda in hand,
salivating at the prospect of
huddling with President
Obama. If, as he says, he will
be president of all Americans,
he should move cautiously
and prudently.
More than 62 million peo-
ple voted to elect Obama. But
some 55 million people voted
for his opponent, and those
are the people that President
Obama has to convince that
he has the best interests of all
Americans at heart. He does
not have a "mandate" when
almost half of the voters did
not vote for him. If he is as
smart as I think he is, he will
move to generate the support
of the 55 million Americans
who may feel they no longer
have a voice or a stake in their
government people who are
frightened of an Obama-Reid-
Pelosi triumvirate.
As an American I sincerely
want to believe in President
Obama. I want to defend his
policies and actions to his crit-
ics here and abroad. I want to
be proud that he is my presi-

dent and want to believe that
the decisions he makes are
best for America.
He doesn't need to con-
vince the 62 million that voted
for him. They are already in
his corner. But in order to per-
suade me and the other half of
America that didn't vote for
him, he needs to show us we
are wrong about his perceived
liberal policies and left-wing
programs. He needs to show
us that we can expect:
His support for a strong
U.S. military and a vow to
fight America's enemies wher-
ever they strike or wherever
they are planning strikes
against us. He needs to 'isolate
and ignore radical voices like
Congressman Barney Frank
(D-Mass), who is calling for a
25 percent across the board
cut in national defense and
new tax increases.
Move to eliminate affir-
mative action programs. His
election alone is enough of a
signal that they are not neces-
sary and that they actually
serve as a tool of discrimina-
tion instead of the other way
Enforce America's bor-
ders and stop the flow of ille-
gals into this country. Take
measures to deny those who
are already here the tax dol-
lars that U.S. citizens pay for
their health care, their chil-
dren's education and other
benefits that are due only to
American citizens.
Fight vigorously to
ensure that our First
Amendment right of free
speech will never be threat-
ened. Reject any attempts to
pass a "Fairness Doctrine"
that will be used to shut down
"talk radio" or other informa-
tion sources right or left -
that some elected officials
want silenced. Sen. Charles
Schumer (D-N.Y.) has gone as
far as to compare talk radio to

failure in other countries
before moving to destroy what
the world now views as the
best medical care system on
the planet.
Don't kill the goose that
lays the Golden Egg by
squeezing the top U.S. wage
earners to the bursting point.
Do-not punish success and
reward failure, instead encour-
age personal responsibility
and reward hard work.
Sending checks to people who
pay no taxes and raising taxes
on those that are successful is
a form of class warfare that
kills incentive, encourages
sloth and sends jobs overseas.
An exit poll on Election
Day indicated that 51 percent
of those asked think the gov-
ernment should do more to
help them. It is unfortunate
that so many people expect
others to pay for their mis-
takes, bail them out of finan-
cial folly, pay their medical
care, educate their children
and protect them and their
families. And they want the
government to enforce it and

use our money to fund it.
President Obama needs to
take action to reverse that
way of thinking. And he can
do it because he alone was
responsible for his bwn suc-
President Obama, you are

they look from their hated Florida Gator foes
down in Jacksonville. I watched it on televi-
sion, praying for some payback for my Gators'
humiliation last year when the mutts in red
and black cleared the bench and flooded the
end zone following their first touchdown.
Tim Tebow and Company must've heard
the anguished prayers of the entire Gator
Nation. They drew first blood and kept on
drawing it till the Dawgs were spent and panti-
ng. The miscreant canines from Athens didn't
even score a touchdown until late in the
fourth, when practically the entire Gator squad
had retired to the sidelines to pump up the
orange and blue for the last few bloody
moments. In the end, the Gators truly did put
the Dawgs to sleep by a score of 49-10.
Later that night, the red and black cus-
tomized travel trailers were quietly and
dispiritedly heading north. Tough break.
That's what they get for dissing the Gator
Nation in front of millions of television viewers
last year.
Downtown Jacksonville looked like a red
and black doghouse the day before the game.
A friend of mine and I had lunch at the
Jacksonville Landing. The Pooches had pretty
much taken over. They had way too much
swagger and strut. A little too much hair of the
Iawg that bit them.

JOE is dressed in red and black.
I stopped by Publix Friday
afternoon to pick up a couple
Joe Palmer of things. The Athenians were
there in droves, stocking up on everything you
could possibly need for a massive tailgate party
and an even more massive victory celebration.
They were parading up and down the grocery
aisles like someone left the doghouse door
open. "Woof! Woof! Woof! How 'bout 'em
Dawgs?" One would holler upon approaching
another black and red-clad fan. "Woof! Woof!
Woof! How 'bout 'em Dawgs?" the other one
would holler back. I swear, I think I even saw a
couple stop and sniff one another.
Florida wasted no time laying waste to any
hope of a repeat of last year, though. Even one
of Florida's defensive linemen got a piece of
the action. I stood up on the sofa and roared
when number 92, Derron Sanders, recovered
the first fumble of his career and rumbled 20
yards before getting dragged down by what
appeared to be a Georgia offensive lineman.
Sanders' waddling run set up Florida QB Tim
Tebow's third rushing touchdown of the game.

I wanted to hug Sanders. His run made me
misty-eyed. Three years ago, almost to the day,
my youngest son was playing defensive line at
Defiance College in Ohio in their game against
Anderson University when he picked up a
dropped ball and lumbered 40 yards before
getting dragged down at the six by an offensive
lineman. Defiance scored on the next play. He
also wore 92. Talk about d6ja vu.
It was eerily quiet around Waycross-by-the-
Sea Saturday night. I went by Publix again to
grab a couple of things and didn't see a single
Georgia Bulldog fan. Didn't hear one, either.
Nor have I seen any cars, trucks or travel trail-
ers on the road displaying their red and black
fight banners. And I haven't heard any barking
anywhere, except my own two dogs, both of
which barked loudly every time I yelled and
cheered. Maybe they were offended. They
probably were rooting for Georgia. They're
dogs, after all,
For weeks to come, there will be soul-
searching and recriminations between the
hedges in Athens. Blood oaths to get even next
year. Just you wait. Meanwhile, over in
Gainesville, deep in the throbbing Orange and
Blue heart of the Gator Nation, there will be
celebrations and back-slapping and stories told
and retold about how the Dawgs were collared
this year.
After every college football game, one team
has to take that long ride home in the dark.
Last year it was Florida. This year it was
Georgia. Poor puppies. I reckon they whim-
pered all the way.
Woof! Woof! How 'bout 'em, Dawgs?


Proud voter
This 60-something, white, bald male has never
been more proud to be an American, and to have
had the privilege of voting my choice once again
for president of this great country.
What Sen. John McCain and President-elect
Barack Obama showed Tuesday night in their
respective speeches to the country was the best
of America. It showed us that after more than 230
years as a "democracy," we really are one. Where
else in the world could a citizen live to see a
hard-fought campaign, a momentous struggle
against the mistakes of our recent past and a
fantastic final rejection of our "race-based" sys-
tem that ends with two true patriots coming
together to help our country regain its footing.
Please, America, let us all applaud Sen.
McCain's humility in his "acknowledgement"
speech. I did not see it as a concession or a
defeat; it was rather an outreach to us all to come
together and join him in his lifelong fight for a bet-
ter America. He showed us last night his true col-
ors and what it really means to put the country
first as he has done so many times in his life.
President-elect Obama's acceptance speech
was one for all time. Truly a new chapter has.
begun; a new road lies ahead for all Americans.
Whether one disagrees with one'or all of his
positions, Americans can all breathe easier now
that the highest office in the land is occupied by
a man of intellect, compassion, reason and true
family values.
As I told my young adult children this morn-
ing: this is your time, your moment. Seize this
moment, realize this is a new day, a new America,
and use this moment- take it to a new dimension.

Cheerful news
It's an unfortunate fact of life that letters to the
editor often contain their fair share of vitriolic
writings. May I use the column to report some
cheerful news that I hope will be of interest to my
fellow Nassau County residents?
It is that after almost 30 years of trying I have
at last succeeded in growing avocado to the point
where this year one of my trees produced good-
sized, tasty edible fruits. Arborists may wish to
note that the producing tree was a Zutano top
cleft grafted in 2002-3 to a two- to three-year-old
Mexicola root stock grown from seed. It had
flowered previously but had never set fruit. This
season it set many fruits but most of them van-
ished in just one night when they were about the
diameter of a quarter. Because I couldn't find any
on the ground I think they were eaten by birds
or animals.
Is this evidence of global warming? Probably,
but I'd like to think perseverance helped.

Seven years ago our family moved to Nassauville.
We are tucked away along a wonderful dirt road.
At night you can see rabbits, deer and in the
day we saw a red fox.
We have watched old cars parked and torn up
be moved out. The ditches are not littered with
beer bottles and trash. Grass being mowed,
houses being painted. As a resident, I'm proud
to live in Nassauville. Come check out CR 107
(Nassauville Road).
Hats off to Tammy of our newly remodeled
Kangaroo store. She has almost single-handed-
ly cleaned up the area around the store. Starting
with the store being 100 percent cleaner to mov-
ing out.and cleaning up the beer-drinking hang-
out people.

On the down side of things, Mobley Heights

We will not stand for this. Gas cans were

other officers.
They will come by at night, two times during
the night, shine lights and check on your prop-

side lights on all night. We will make a difference
if we all work together.
We also had an episode with a rental being
under eviction. Officer Williams and Officer
Crews answered my call of help ASAP. They
made the process safe and read the residents
their rights and me my rights. Thank you for your
advice and safety.
Keep up the good work. Stay safe. I feel safer
that these officers are working in Nassauville.

Eppes House
As a regular reader of the News-Leader and a
member of the Duncan Lamont Clinch Historical
Society, I found ("All the makings of a ghost
story," Oct. 29) about the possible "haunting" of
the. Eppes House especially interesting, but
thought that a little more information about this
wonderful old monument to Fernandina's unique
historical past would be apropos.
My family (the Beugnet family, descendants
of Judge Leopold Beugnet, who served as Nassau
County Circuit Court judge during the turn of the
20th century) owned and resided at the South
10th Street house for many years. It is even des-
ignated as "the Beugnet House" in the Amelia
Island Museum of History. I spent my early
childhood years there, but my family decided that
the old Victorian structure was too costly to
maintain and chose to relocate in the 1950s to the
"new" suburbs of Fernandina, which included
17th Street, where we remained for the next
three decades.
During the many years that my older family
members lived in the Eppes House, there
seemed to be no instances of Celeste (Katie)
Eppes' presence or any supernatural events. I am
sure that whatever strange occurrences that
were experienced were attributed to "old house
Eric Corbett and his wife were not given
enough credit in your article for the original
restoration of Eppes House. I visited during this
enormous project and was thrilled with the
Corbetts' thoughtful, devoted and beautiful revival
of this wonderful old house. His family has relat-
ed to me that they contacted specialists in the
world of paranormal research and indeed dis-

covered "hot spots" and unusual "auras" in vari-
ous parts of the structure.
Maggie Carter de Vries' recent book, Amelia's
Secrets, an historical novel, reminds us, however,
that this "ghost story" is a result of a tragic mur-
der in the 1880's: TJ. Eppes shot Ferdinand C.
Suhrer for supposed "inappropriate attentions" to
his young and beautiful wife, Katie. As the author
reveals in her acknowledgements at the begin-
ning of Amelia's Secrets, a well-researched account
of the murder and subsequent trial, Claire
Shepard, a staff member of the Nassau County
Library, and an invaluable research consultant for
the author, is a descendant of Mr. Suhrer. Ironies
of family ties abound on this island, one of which
is that Claire is my second cousin!
I have heard the Eppes "ghost story" all of my
life, and it's nice to see this fascinating part of the
house's history once again revealed, both in
Amelia's Secrets (a wonderful read) and the News-

Undiscovered gem
People say they go on vacation to get away
from it all. But I find this ironic as they stand in
lines at Disney World, sail the Caribbean seas
with thousands of others or head to a city known
as the biggest metropolis in the States. It seems
to me like they are doing the exact opposite.
Not that I have anything against people. In fact,
I'd like to think of myself as a people person. I
thrive on being around others. However, to me
vacation is truly about getting away from it all. All,
including people.
When I plan a vacation with my husband, I
look for somewhere non-touristy. Somewhere
that is an undiscovered gem. And I have found
One is a little cabin we rented in Gilmanton,
N.H., on Crystal Lake. Not a well-known lake
compared to Winnipesauke, but one with less
pomp and circumstance. Quaint cottages are
nestled between trees with a canoe gently drift-
ing in the laps of waves coming on shore. Rusty
well water never quite gets the sand out of hair.
And you can bring your dog with you, even if she
is a St. Bernard. A small market is a two-mile hike
away for a loaf of bread, cereal and hot dogs for
the grill.
No enormous mansions with more ameni-
ties than your regular home. No fancy speed
boats and jet skis that tear up the calm waters.
Just lazy days on a hammock and lazy nights
by a log fire.
Away from it all.
I didn't think of Florida in this same light,
but when we got a cheap deal to Jacksonville, I
began looking for someplace nearby that offered
an "away from it all" feeling. What I found was
Amelia Island.
We stayed at the Ash Street Inn and were
the only couple for a few nights. We had the
pool to ourselves as well as gourmet breakfasts,
which were to die for: Each morning, the innkeep-
ers assisted us in finding new destinations to
explore: a hike to the bones (a beach with drift-
wood), an alligator excursion on bikes or a search
for shark teeth.

As we walked endless beaches, only white
sand and waves for company, I didn't want to go
home. Happy Tomato gave us the best barbe-
cue lunch, served with a smile. A local picture
book author gave me his card since I was a fellow
writer, offering me to contact his publisher. A
staff member at our inn took my husband and me
along to dig up sea turtle eggs. They had hatched
before an oncoming tropical storm. If we were
lucky, we would see one left behind swim into the
ocean for the first time.
And lucky we were, as we watched 'Ted" pad-
dle into the sea. Keeping our fingers crossed
that he'd make it.
Memories of places and some quirky people,
but never crowds. In fact several times, we dined
alone. One night at a Mexican outdoor garden
underneath twinkling lights. Another time, at a
small local caf6.
Artist studios adorned some of the streets
and you could walk right in and watch them
paint. Long swaying sea grass, plum purple sun-
sets staining the sky.
And then, a night on a porch swing, reading
poetry, watching the occasional person mean-
der past.
I can't imagine going on vacation to get away
from it all and landing in an amusement park, full
of noise, fried food and crowds. I can't imagine
longing to be in a shopping mall surrounded by
a'hundred stores, women on cell phones chat-
tering away. I don't think I care to sail the seven
seas either with thousands of others in tiny rooms
with only balconies for fresh air.
I often wonder what type of fast-paced life
these people lead that a vacation like this is calm-
ing, away from it all. To me, it is anything but.

Smooth election
On behalf of all Democratic poll watchers at
the 2008 general election, I wish to congratu-
late Supervisor of Elections Vicki Cannon,
her staff and all her dedicated poll workers on
a smooth, professional and expertly run elec-
Particularly this year, with the unexpected
extension of early voting hours, a great deal was
required of every poll worker; as always they
delivered courteously and efficiently. Vicki her-
self was always helpful and responsive to our
questions and concerns in a true spirit of bipar-
In my personal observations over many hours
at many different polling places, I found an obvi-
ous dedication to ensuring that every possible
voter voted. The poll workers handled the
inevitable issues that came up quickly, sensi-
tively and professionally to reach the desired
outcome of another satisfied voter.
Fair and transparent elections are the back-
bone of our vibrant democracy. I know every
Nassau County voter appreciates the enormous
effort that went into making this election so suc-
cessful. Thanks to all for a job exceptionally well
done in a truly bipartisan manner.

Francis of Assisi

Assisi in 1182 and died in 1226. Being a son of a wealthy cloth merchant, lie had a
carefree youth. Then, as a young man, lejoined the Crusades but was captured and
imprisoned, virtually ruining his health. After returning home to 4 ..,, iiI ,Ii I IIlii] to
find direction in his life, he had a conversion experience wherein God spoke to hill,
saying "rebuild my church." Initially, Francis took tis literally, and actually began
rebuilding the dilapidated chapel that ie had been praying in. But subsequently, Francis
rebuilt the church spiritually by establishing a rule of life based on the Gospels.
He developed a massive following, which ultimately became tihe three Franciscan orders
'(one for priests, one for nuns, and one for lay persons). There is much to celebrate in
Francis' vision of Christianity: his insistence on following the gospel,
including some very hard ideals,
such as giving everything
you have to the poor; his great (
sympathy and love for all of
creation, including non-human
animals; and his mystical vision that

the sun and moon as "Brother Sun" and
"Sister Moon." In these days whn we seii
to be ignoring ile warring signs of a
planet in peril, Saint Francis appears to
be something of a prophet. We would all
do well to embrace a life of gospel,
poverty and humility, while reflecting a
joyful love for all of Gods creation.

not renounce all that he has cannot

up-stack and down-stack 12 spe-
cially designed cups called
Speed Stacks in predetermined
sequences as fast as they can.
Stackers race against the clock
and compete in relays.
To take part, schools and
organizations around the world
are required to register with the
WSSA. Once they complete their
30 minutes of stacking for each
participant they are required to
send in written verification of
numbers to the WSSA, which
will pass on the total count to
Guinness for official recognition.

Growth hormone: Badfor

Clemens: goodfor Grandpa?

drug that stimulates
release of growth
hormone has been
shown to aid in helping
healthy adults maintain mus-
cle mass that is normally lost
as part of the normal aging
process. Researchers at the
University of Virginia con-
ducted a two-year study of 65
healthy older adults and the
oral drug Ghrelin mimetic, or
MK-677, which is produced
by Merck. Participants expe-
rienced increased growth
hormone levels to those seen
in young adults.
Michael Thorner, MB, BS,
DSc, and Ralf Nass, MD, of
the University of Virginia,
noted there was some antici-
pated increase in blood sugar
and the body's sensitivity to
insulin decreased slightly.
This was felt to be a "normal
effect of enhancing growth
hormone secretion aind
unlikely to be of clinical sig-
nificance in subjects who are
not diabetic," Thorncr says.
The purpose of the study
was to determine whale e'ffctc
stimulating growtli hormone
would have on senior citizens
as well as what interventions
could help with some of Ilhe
negative effects of the normal
aging process. Participants
notlted increases in ilmuscle
mass in the limbs as well as
some illcrease in glieral
body fal and mass. Thorner

says if such
a pill ever
hits the mar-
ket it'll be
p good news
I because a
rising popu-
lation of frail
people "is
going to
- : become a
SPORTS major bur-
ilen on the
MEDICINE country."
GR ,GO, However,
GR OR there is no
SMITI. M.D. likelihood of
...- this pill hit-
ling the mar-
ket anytime soon because
more extensive trials will
have to be performed.
Th orler did predict, how-
ever, that this drug lhas a
promising future. "If I look
into a crystal ball 50 years
from now, people will be lak-
ing drugs like this il tlhe
same way they lake vitamins
today," Ihe said. "We hope this
will extend health, 11he

potential for baby boonlers."

Q When should I get a
Test tor ostleoporosis?

If you are over 50 and
have a history of a
"lragility fraclhres," fractures
not hdue to any type of trauma.
Also, screeniiing scans should

be done in all women over 65
and all men over 70. Patients
who are on high doses of cor-
licosteroids should also be
considered for screening
Researchers believe, with
proper steps, osteoporosis-
related fractures can be re-
duced. In addition to doctors
becoming more vigilant in
screenings, it is also suggest-
ed that elderly patients con-
sider working with either a
physical therapist or certified
personal trainer in order to
improve lower body strength,
coordination and balance.
Researchers for Kaiser
Permanent created a fall-
reduction program for al-risk
patients. Studying some
620,000 patients from 2002-6,
it was noted that Ihe rate of
hip fractures dropped by 37
percent overall. I have sent
some patients for just this
sort of thing and most
patients and their families are
glad I did.

Both rddfish and sea trout

But what's even more
interesting to me now are the
book's quirky, unapologetic
recipes, like beef tartare, tripe
and "Drunks' Soup" (which
uses sauerkraut juice and is
supposed to be great for
hangovers). There are also
several versions of something
called Welsh rarebit and of
course hasenpfeffer, of
Looney Tunes fame. (If you
have any idea of the obscure
reference here, please e-mail
me ... and I'll send you a
recipe for hasenpfe'ffer.)
