Despite three scheduled meetings
with the city two last week and anoth-
er Wednesday First Baptist Church of
Fernandina Beach still cannot occupy
S its new Eighth Street church.
The latest meeting Wednesday
scheduled with the Code Enforcement
and Appeals Board resulted in nothing
more productive than a lengthy squab-
ble about Sunshine Law, and whether
the public had been given proper notice,
before it was canceled.
"We've, been going through this
process for four months," said the Rev.
Jeff Overton at the end of the meeting.
"The city is showing some incompe-
The Wednesday meeting, attended
by about 40 church members, was
scheduled after a Nov. 6 Code
Enforcement Board of Appeals meeting
was canceled for lack of a quorum. That
board has authority to overturn a city
decision that the new church building
does not meet the building code.
However, City Attorney Tammi Bach
started out the Wednesday meeting by
saying the public had not been proper-
ly notified, and itwould be a violation of
state law for the meeting to go any fur-
ther. She also said the city had not had
an opportunity to bring its own archi-
tectural experts along, as First Baptist
Church had.
The church's lawyer, former county
attorney Mike Mullin, argued that since
the board had already violated the law,
it could not "unviolate it" by moving
the meeting to a later date. He also
argued the city already had its own
experts in the form of the building offi-
cial and the fire marshal.
The meeting proceeded until it was
determined by Valerie Faltemier, attor-
ney for the code appeals board, that
the meeting should be ended after she
spoke with the Florida Attorney
General's Office. She said Alexis
Lambert in the Attorney General's
Office advised her that a public notice
was required, and the meeting should
be ended.
An employee in the city's community
development office had failed to notify
the city clerk's office of the meeting,
which requires 24-hour public notice.
The code enforcement board is a legal
entity, and its decisions may be appealed
not to the city commission, but to

meeting for next week.

keep it in perspective."
Powell said 52 students, male and female, were
identified as teen parents and received services
from the school. Powell said because Nassau County
is a relatively small school system compared to met-
ropolitan areas like Jacksonville, it "skews" the sta-
tistics. Still, Powell said in two years, the number of
student parents enrolled in Nassau County schools
increased by 30.

It is a jump of more than 100 percent; Powell said
he attributes that to a lost grant that paid for Project
SOS in local middle schools and high schools. Powell
said for one year, the program was not in Nassau
County schools at all. Project SOS returned two
years ago, however it now focuses primarily on high
school students.
The program encourages students to wait to
have sex until they are married, and according to

Grant for Southside denied

News Leader
The Southside neighborhood of
Fernandina Beach will not receive
$600,000 in federal grant money to
make improvements to its sidewalks
and storm drains, according to a
memo to the city manager from
grants administrator Cheryl Nichols.
An evaluation by Tony Morgan,
financial specialist with the state
Department of Community Affairs,
showed that the Community
Development Block Grant project did
not benefit enough low-income
households to be effective.
A CDBG Citizens Advisory Task
Force that was put together in August
2007 chose three streets in the down-
town neighborhood for improve-
ments: Cedar Street from Eighth to
14th streets; Fir Street from Eighth to
10th streets; and Kelp Street from
Eighth to 11th streets.

A state evaluation found the project did not benefit
enough low-income households.

The streets were chosen because
they lead to a school, a community
center and several churches in the
neighborhood, which is bounded by
Beech and Lime streets to the north
and south, and Eighth and 14th
streets to the east and west.
Income surveys were conducted
in the neighborhood to determine if
it was eligible for the grant. However,
there were not enough low-to-mod-
erate income households to benefit
from the project, according to
Morgan, although the city did receive
benefits for 16 very-low-income
According to the memo, "10 low-
to-moderate income households
would have benefited from this proj-

ect and the dollar amount expended
for each family would have been
$60,000." To be cost-effective,
Morgan said, the amount would have
to be $16,000 or less per household.
James Miller of the Department of
Community Affairs said the task force
should not feel slighted because the
project did not score high enough in
the first round.
"We get way more requests than
we're able to fund," he added.
The next cycle of CDBG applica-
tions, according to the memo, could
begin next spring. The state's
Department of Community Affairs
will advertise deadlines for the next

If you thought that falling fuel costs
might herald lower electricity prices
in the future think again.
Florida's Public Service Commis-
sion (PSC) approved higher 2009 fuel
adjustment rates for four power com-
panies Wednesday, including Florida
Public' Utilities Co., which serves
Fernandina Beach.
The cost for residential customers
using 1,000 kwh will rise from $116.44
to $122.39 a month, another 5 percent
hike on top of the multiple soaring
increases over the past two years.
Off-island customers of Florida
Power & light Company (FPL) also
face an increase. FPL plans to file an

with the state commission next week,

After fuss,

The county coordinator's request
for a salary increase generated dis-
agreement among Nassau County
Commissioners at their regular Monday
According to his contract, County
Coordinator Ed Sealover was entitled to
negotiate a salary adjustment after his
12-month performance evaluation.
However, Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall, who was
defeated in the pri-
mary by Walter
Boatright, and
CommissionerJim B.
Higginbotham, who
lost the general elec-
tion to Danny Leeper,
felt adjusting
Sealover's salary Sealover
should be up to the
next commission.
Sealover, who was hired as county
coordinator in October 2007 at a salary
of $105,000, received positive per-
formance evaluations from four of the
five commissioners; Marshall declined
to evaluate him.
The commissioners' positive evalu-
ations of Sealover were read into the
record, but Higginbotham and Marshall
wanted to leave any discussion of his
salary to their replacements. "I don't
think it would be fair for us to set it,"
Higginbotham said. "I think it's up to
the new board."
Commissioners Mike Boyle and
Barry Holloway protested, but Marshall
agreed. "I think the new board needs to
work with him," she said.
Commissioner Stacy Johnson, who
in September filled the seat vacated by
Tom Branan, insisted Marshall and
Higginbotham were more qualified to
discuss Sealover's salary than she,
Boatright or Leeper.

When both programs were
on hiatus in the 2006-7 school
year, the number of teen par-

there were 52 teen parents in
Nassau County schools.
Mullarkey and Powell both note
the correlation between the

had some form of sex educa-

over 200
years. Records indicate during
the Revolutionary War and the
Civil War, while in disguise,
women enlisted as soldiers
using male pseudonyms, there-
by acquiring the term "the invis-
ible veteran." The first wonlan
soldier of record was Deborah
Sampson, who enlisted in the
Continental Army under the
name of Robert Shurtlief.
During her three years as a
patriot she was wounded twice
and was forced to cut out an
enemy musket ball from her
thigh so doctors would liot find
out she was a woman. Then
there was Sarah Rosetta
Wakeman, who enlisted during
the Civil War under the alias
Private Lyons Wakeman. Her
experiences with the Union
Army are documented in the
book, An Uncommon Soldier.

ice member throughout history

Auxiliary Corps (WAAC). World
War II saw the Navy recruiting
woImiIen for the 'Womlen
Appointed for Voluntary
Emergency Service (WAVES),
the Womoen's Naval Reserve and
the Marine Corps Women's
Reserve. In July 1943 a bill was
signed removing "auxiliary"
from the Women's Army
Auxiliary Corps, making the
WAAC an official part of the reg-
ular army. By the end of World
War II, 350,000 American
women had served, of whom
16 are listed as having been
killed in action.
The Women's Armed
Services Act of 19,18 allowed
women to serve in fully inte-
grated units during peacetime
and by 1953 the Korean War
would have recorded 120,000
military women serving their
nation's call for assistance. Octo-
ber 1961 saw the first involve-
mlent of women assigned to the
National Guard and Air National
Guard when 17 females were
activated by JFK in support of
the Berlin crisis. Today, women
comprise about 10t percent of
the Guard nationwide.
The Defense Manpower
Data Center records indicate
over 200 women participated in
Grenada in 1983, while over
1,000 assisted in military oper-
ations in Somalia between 1992-
94. In 1995 over 1.200 women
deployed to Haiti for peace-
keeping duties, and to date over
5,000 women also served in the
peacekeeping efforts in Bosnia.

premiered on Nov. 11, 1993,
with the unveiling of the
Vietnam Women's Memorial in
Washington, D.C. It was the first
memorial honoring women in
the military. This 2,000-pound
bronze statue positioned near
the front of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial (The Wall)
is a 6-foot 8-inch high statue
depicting a nurse holding a
wounded male soldier; a woman
looking skyward as if in antici-
pation of a rescue helicopter
and another on her knees hold-
ing a helmet and looking at the
ground in despair. The figures
wear fatigues with no identifying
insignia, symbolically including
all women military, medical
and civilian volunteers serving
in Vietnam.
Although the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial includes the
names of eight military women
who died during that conflict,
the founders of the Vietnam
Women's Memorial Project felt
there should be recognition for
the surviving women since an
estimated 11,000 female mili-
tary, medical and other work-
ers served in Vietnam. The
memorial is also for the fami-
lies who lost loved ones in the
war, so they would know about
the women who provided com-
fort, care and a human touch
for those suffering and dying. It
is estimated approximately
265,000 military women served
world-wide in various capacities
during the Vietnam War. Find

Pedestrian dies

after accident

News Leader
A 79-year-old woman died at
Shands Jacksonville about a
week after a vehicle hit her as
she was walking across First
Coast Highway.
Police said the accident hap-
pened about 6 p.m. Nov. 6 as
Betty Lou Coker of Oak Marsh
Drive "walked out in front of'
a 1992 Nissan driven by 21-
year-old Christopher Scott
Jones, who was not charged.
According to the police
report, Jones was driving north
on A1A, First Coast Highway,

1 dead, i

north of Romance Circle, when
Coker was struck by the vehi-
cle's right-side bumper and
mirror. Coker was taken by
ambulance to Shands Jackson-
ville where she remained until
her death Thursday.
Jones told police he was
driving when "out of nowhere,
he saw a woman in the road."
He said he hit his brakes and
swerved as he tried to avoid
hitting her. A witness con-
firmed Jones' account.
According to police, Jones
was driving about 40 mph, 5
mph under the speed limit,
when the accident occurred.

A Jacksonville man died
Tuesday night after the truck
he was a passenger in ran into
the back of a truck carrying a
sign warning traffic to move
away from road construction
on 1-95 south of A1A.
Rubin Davis Jr., 83, died at
Shands Jacksonville following
the accident. The driver of the
vehicle, 63-year-old Roger
White, also of Jacksonville, was
also taken to Shands.
Lt. Bill Leeper of the Florida
Highway Patrol said White's
injuries are not life threaten-
ing. He was listed in stable con-
dition at Shands on Wednesday
Leeper said White was driv-

ing a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe
south on 1-95, about three miles
south of AlA, when he struck
the back of the truck with a
sign with an arrow indicating
traffic should move over to
avoid road construction.
The driver of the second
truck was not injured.
SLeeper said the accident
happened about 11:30 p.m.

Sealover finally interrupted
the debate. "May I speak?" he
said. "You all had an agreement
with me that after a year I was
entitled to a salary adjustment.
I don't see how you can do that
if it's left up to the new board."
Sealover insisted on making

positive evaluation you get a

he said. "I'm asking for a 2.5

The board agreed to
Sealover's request and approved
the increase unanimously. How-
ever, there was some lingering
concern about Marshall's
efforts to delay the vote.
"Ms. Marshall didn't provide
a performance appraisal at
(Sealover's) six-month anniver-
sary, and she refused to provide
one at the year anniversary. By
his contract, Mr. Sealover is enti-
tled to that, and it's disappoint-

her duties," Boyle said Tuesday.
"She was instrumental in the
dismissal of the last two county
administrators, so I would have

Boyle and Holloway felt
Marshall's resistance was dou-
bly mystifying given the rela-
tively small raise Sealover
requested. "Based on the eco-
nomic situation, I felt that
(amount) was fair and I guess so
did (Sealover)," Holloway said.
"It was a very minor adjust-
ment," Boyle said. "It wasn't
going to bankrupt anybody."
Both praised Sealover's per-
formance as county coordina-
tor. "He stepped into a mess,
with the landfill situation and
fire contracts and other small
issues that we don't even know
about, and he's done a good
job," Holloway said.

Baptist Nassau Volunteers
In honor of the Baptist Nassau Auxiliary's
60th anniversary, Baptist Nassau is pleased
to recognize some of the 200 dedicated volunteers
who give so much to the hospital and the community.

Congratulations and thanks for all you do.

Mary Ruark, Gift Shop

Mary was touched by the warmth, compassion and professionalism
shown by the nurses, doctors and auxilians at Baptist Nassau during
the last year of hei husband's life. She decided to volunteer and
really enjoys it. "I like the people best. Plus, it's comforting to know
we don't have to leave the County to get excellent hospital care."

Celebrating the Auxiliary's 60 years of service

City Hall puts

pedal to metal

private industry or their person-
al lives, are cutting back on
spending. They're worried
about their jobs, investments and their
plans for the future. Consumers are scared,
and that's rippling through our local and
national economy with dire results.
Unless, of course, they're at City Hall,
where there's plenty of taxpayer money to
There were questions this summer when
Fernandina Beach Commissioners budget-
ed for new vehicles, including one for the
city manager. Of course, the economy was
better back then than it was on Tuesday,
when the commission ratified its earlier
decision by a unanimous vote.
City Manager Michael Czymbor, whose
six-figure salary apparently isn't high
enough for him to buy his own wheels, will
get a 2009 Ford Escape to replace his 2006
model, which has only 23,000 miles on it.
We question why the city manager's con-
tract calls for him to have a car at all. The
county coordinator, who has much more
territory to cover, doesn't get a car.
Does the city manager really need a
vehicle to cover the three miles from home
to office, or to oversee the empire that is
the city of Fernandina Beach? If he has an
out of town conference, wouldn't it be less
expensive to use a car from the city fleet
just for those occasions?
Does he really need a four-wheel-drive
vehicle? In a city where you can't drive on
the beach, there's no snow and no off-road
driving allowed?
Does he really need a new car every
three years, as his contract calls for, even if
his current vehicle only has 23,000 miles on
Does City Hall really think taxpayers are
that dumb in Fernandina? Are we?
We just don't get it. The city has 238
vehicles from heavy loaders to cars to rid-
ing lawnmowers but many of those cars
are for the individual use of our self-impor-
tant city officials.
We recognize the need for police and fire
vehicles, but given the salaries paid to our
top city brass, we think they can afford their
own cars and gas. Do as private industry
does: Be paid a reasonable sum per mile for
personal vehicle use while on city business.
The one good thing about this vehicle
purchase is it's good for the economy the
economies of Orlando, Milton, Green Cove
Springs and Jacksonville, where the vehi-
cles are being purchased, not for us and our
local Ford dealer.
There's a recession on in most of
Fernandina Beach, but not at 204 Ash St.,
where the city manager gets a new car -
and the taxpayers get taken for a ride.

Drove my Chevy to the levee...

I attended mv 36ilhI igh school class
reunion last weekend. Whoa! What an
odd year lor a class reunion. Thel
Wavcross, Ga., Class ol' 1973 :had its :351h
reunion. They' invite the Class of'72 because
imosi of us lhad friends wlio were underclass-
1 haven't laughed so hard or danced so long
in quite a spell. It was awesome seeing so
many people I thought I'd never see again.
Rhythin Oil, a group of guys from back in the
clay who are still playing together provided the
tunes. Everything from Motown to the Allman
Brothers, with a lot of great improvisation in
We spent the evening reliving our glory
days. Like the oldsters we're becoming, we
kept forgetting we were repeating ourselves.
But because our short-term memories are get-
ting spotty, no one noticed except our spouses,
who get to hear it every day. The older we
get, the better we were. It didn't take long for
us to mentally back flip into the late '60s and
early '70s. Take "The Big Chill" and combine it
with equal parts "Peggy Sue Got Married" and
"Cocoon" and you get a pretty good idea.
Because most of us wouldn't recognize our
high school flames or friends if we collided in
a hallway, we wore lnaletlags with our year-
book photos on them so we could identify one
another. I gotta say this. A golden oldies class
reunion is one of those rare places a guy can
lean over and stare at a gal's chest and not get
his jaw busted. You have to get up pretty close
to read the smallish print on a nametag or rec-
ognize the face on a postage-stamp-sized year-

' ... .. |.Dbook phlloo. Besides, what
you iniglit've been scoping
t ou 30 or so years ago proba-
7 bly no longer resides in that
S ii. immediate vicinity, anyway, if
you gel my drift. I got my
mug close to the bosom of
one of my old friends of the
py fairer sex and was squinting
at her nametag when she
CUPOF pouted, "Hey now, don't tell
JOE me you need to look at my
nametag." In a valiant effort
to save face, I blurted out, "I
Joe Palmer wasn't looking at your
nametag." Instead of bopping
me one, she just grinned and said, "Now that's
the guy I remember!" Dang, why didn't I try
that line back in high school?
Naturally, there were jokes and locker
room humor about Viagra. Miraculously, not a
single one of my male former classmates has
ever personally seen one of the little blue man-
hood rejuvenators, let alone taken one. I did
think it a bit strange, though, that most of the
guys had plenty of stories about unnamed
sources that shared very intimate details with
them about how the medication works, even
its widely publicized unfortunate side effects.
Like one guy said, if it takes mission control
four hours to determine something has gone
painfully wrong onboard, all future flights of
that nature probably ought to be scrubbed. At
the end of the day, most of the gents agreed
that Viagra is like a loaded gun. You hope you
don't have to use it but it's comforting to know

it's there if you do.
A number of our former classmates have
(lied over the years and we had a candlelight
service to honor their memories. I always
thought Mark Twain's famous line, "Rumors
of my death have been greatly exaggerated" to
be one of the greatest one-liners of the ages. I
actually got a chance to employ it when a guy I
haven't seen in 30 years stared at me with
bulging eyes and mouth agape and sputtered,
"I thought you were dead!" Now I know why
some people believe in ghosts. This guy
looked as if he'd seen one.
Sadly, we are orphan alumni. The city
school system we attended merged with the
county school system and Waycross High
School ceased to exist years ago. Someone
located the old football game victory bell,
restored it to its former splendor and towed it
to the reunion on its trailer. We were the
Bulldogs and throughout the evening, old
classmates, some fueled by liquid courage,
toddled outside and rang the bell as the rest of
us gathered around and hollered encourage-
Like the classic Youngbloods song says,
"We are but a moment's sunshine fading in the
grass." You wouldn't have known it last week-
end. The Big Chill was never so cool. Peggy
Sue Got Married again. And Ron Howard's
spaceship full of rejuvenated oldsters sailed
away into the wee hours with "Statesboro
Blues" blaring from the speakers.

City lobbyist
I am writing as a native, former resident and
former FBHS student of Commissioner Ron
Sapp to express my gratitude to him for voting
against the noncompetitive hiring of Jacobs,
Scholz & Associates for the purpose of bringing
home the bacon ("City hires lobbyist for
$150,000." Nov. 7). Such actions are indicative of
the mindset that has brought Nassau County
and Fernandina Beach to its current situation.
Growth was (and is) poorly managed, and
now to clean up the mess the city hires people
with connections in an effort to lasso the tax dol-
lars of people who live in other communities.
How pathetic. I look forward to revisiting this
topic in two years to see if the city's lobbying
investment of $150,000 brings in the tenfold
return of $1.5 million that City Attorney Tamnmi
Bach expressed confidence in. Perhaps it will. But
on behalf of all taxpayers outside of Nassau
County. I wish the city a total lack of success in
its effort to purchase influence in state and fed-
eral government.

Quiet heroes
In her ("Quiet hero recounts years as prisoner
of war," Nov. 5) column, Dickie Anderson wrote
the story of Dick Stratton well and with the dig-
nity that returning POWs always deserve but
have not always received.
I knew and "served" with several of the
returning Vietnam era Air Force POWs in my 27
years as an Air Force wife. Knowing each of
them was an honor. I shall never, never forget
their sacrifice notr that of the men and women,
past and present, who willingly have placed their
lives on the line for me, my family and our nation.

Beyond color
Is chess racist? Well, chess pieces are black
and white. True, we also use black and white to
refer to two of the numerous skin colors found
on our planet. But not every coincidence is a
conspiracy. Despite the two colors, chess players.
should find no cause, in the game they love, to be
racist. The two sides are made up of 16 black
pieces and 16 white pieces. In total initial equi-
librium, each side starts with one queen, one
king, two bishops, two knights, two rooks and
eight pawns. As with skin color a piece's color is
most important for identification. A piece's type
(say rook or pawn) tells us more about a piece's
strengths and weaknesses than its color.
A person's skin color has no effect on how
they are assigned a side. To be a master player
one is required to be proficient in playing both col-
ors. In a tournament the players take turns play-
ing the two colors.
The only advantage afforded white is the
requirement of moving first. When one considers
the body of research and writing about chess
openings (3,000-plus openings have been studied)
the rule causes this literature to be more readable.
In the books on openings white is used to show
offensive and black is used to show defensive
If we consider that a portion of racism was
based on black being used as a symbol of evil,
chess, as a metaphor, calls into question this
false belief. Chess could be a good mediator
between racial factions in our culture.

Dictator Obama
President-elect Obama threw three reporters
off his plane because the papers supported John
McCain; I see this as his first attempt of cen-
sorship. Only time will tell, but as (Georgia) Rep.
Paul Broun said. Hitler was elected in a demo-
cratic Germany.
Obama was one of the most outspoken
Democratic senators against the Second
Amendment; people listened to his smooth talk
about how he would defend our rights to own
guns, but he favors a ban on certain firearms.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is not supporting
our Second Amendment rights, it is a attack on
our rights. Well, he'll go after our guns first, then
set his sights on the First Amendment.
Bear in mind after we are disarmed, then he
can set his sights on whatever he desires. First
comes registration of our guns; once they know
where they are, it's easier to round them up. I
hope, pray that we are wrong about him, but he
has no intention of keeping his promises to the
America people. Remember, he would consider
drilling, now it's off the table. I suggest if you are
not a member of the NRA, that you join.

Crane Island
I wish to strongly object to the proposed
dredging application for work on Crane Island.
There are sound reasons why Crane Island
should never be developed:
The island is very low-lying and will sure-
ly be flooded in even a modest hurricane event.
Green space for native birds and other ani-
mals is rapidly disappearing in Fernandina Beach
due to the continued onslaught of profit-minded
developers who have no concern for the local cit-
Crane Island is in the flight path of the
Fernandina Beach airport.
But perhaps most important:
In the present deteriorating real estate eco-
nomic situation, it would seem that there could
be a high probability that the Crane Island proj-
ect might never be finished. The current permit
application, if allowed to continue, would drasti-
cally destroy much of the natural beauty of Crane
Island with no guarantee that the project would
ever be completed.
.One need only consider the fate of the devel-
opment of the deep-water luxury community
planned in St. Marys, Ga., on the site of the now
demolished Georgia-Durango paper mill to visu-
alize what likely will happen to the Crane Island
development.(We used to be able to see that
mill from Fernandina Beach before it was
destroyed and removed.)
The developer in St. Marys has recently
filed for bankruptcy and left the few new home-
owners and those who purchased undeveloped
lots in limbo. What purpose is there in dredging
and tearing up Crane Island only to have the
work likely abandoned later? Have the develop-
ers not observed the numerous uncompleted
and abandoned housing projects in Nassau
Again, I urge that no development work be
permitted on Crane Island.

Church celebrates friends, family

Our lives sometimes seem to be one
continued storm, trial after trial. We may
feel depleted and torn. Hard times multi-
ply again and again. Each day may bring
on new problems. Things seem never to
end, but when we remember the words
of God saying when we go through any-
thing, he will be there with us, for he is
the Lord, our God; he carried the cross
for us and will bear all our burdens in
his arms.

God should always get our glory,
honor and praise. When we share with

FRIDAY. November 14. 2008/News Lacdcr


Enjoying the benefits ofworking with God

The sound of roaring
machinery filled the night
air as I dragged my feet
through the paper scraps
that cluttered the loading dock
where I was working. It was one of
the darkest seasons of my life.
Recently divorced, pushed out from
my home and missing my children,
life had gotten really bad. To make
matters even worse, I was up to my
curly head in a bunch of unneces-
sary debt.
Now before I go any further, I
realize that some of you perhaps are
struggling with the idea that I'm a
pastor. I mean, having been divorced
and all. Truth is, I struggled with it
myself for quite a while but finally
gave in to the grace of God that was
pursuing me. I know I've heard all

the arguments that
say a pastor should
be the husband of
only one wife -
S which I can assure
you that I am and
that God hates
divorce which I
know that He does.
But I've also learned
PULPIT that above all that,
NOTES God loves people.
That's right, no
matter where we've
Pastor been, the good news
Rob Goyette of Jesus Christ is
that God can take all
our junk and bring something good
out of it if we are willing to submit
ourselves to Him. Though I could be
wrong, I think it's one of the reasons

God put me in the ministry. No, not
to strut around like I've got it all
together, that would sure be a lie, but
to demonstrate the grace and the
goodness of God to those in need.
Either way, as long as God seems
pleased to push words through the
filter of my life I'm happy to let Him.
Oh yeah, our story. Well, there I
was. Beaten down and discouraged
and to be honest, a little put out with
God. It just didn't seem fair. To the
best of my ability I had done every-
thing I had known to serve Him, and
now all this. Then it happened. As I
pondered my mountain of credit card
debt, and the injustice of having to
pay all the bills, I heard His still
small voice. "I told you not to do it,"
He said reminding me of His counsel
about how I should and shouldn't

use my credit cards. All I could do
was agree. "OK God, You're right. So
what am I suppose to do now?"
"Well," He told me, "you're going to
have to work some more overtime."
"Overtime," I remember thinking.
Great, that's just what I need, more
It was then, while I was feeling
ready to quit, that God spoke the
unforgettable words that changed
my life forever. "I'm going to work
with you," He said, letting me know
that in spite of my mistakes I was still
loved. And that's just what He did.
Do you know that shortly after
He spoke those words I received a
temporary promotion that increased
my hourly wage by more then $5 per
Jlour? How about the fact that right
around that same time they pulled

my name out of a hat at the company
picnic, which won me another $500.
Go God! I could go on and on about
how God in His infinite wisdom
decided to let me feel the conse-
quence of my bad choices while at
the same time working with me to
bring me up and out of all my trou-
bles. The end result was one that left
me knowing that I was loved, even
though imperfect.
Suffice it to say, a lot of wonderful
things have happened in my life
since that time and I can honestly
say it's all because of a loving God
who stood with me when I felt all

the 50-yard freestyle in the Region 1-2A meet at Leon High School Nov. 6. Kaywork
is the lone state qualifier for the Pirate swim team. She will compete in the Class 2A

Wrestlers get dolled up tonight

The Pirate grapplers will be in skirts and

Fernandina Beach High School's wrestling
team is holding a fundraiser tonight at the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center and, in addi-
tion to a chili cookoff and silent auction, the
wrestlers will be dressing up for their own beau-
ty pageant.
"This started out as a fun way to raise money
for the team to defray cost of travel to tourna-
ments and equipment," said Katrina Baxter, a
mother and a member of the fundraising com-
mittee for the wrestling team. "While selecting
things to dress like women for the beauty pag-
eant, it raised their awareness of women's health
issues, mainly breast cancer (and) those women's
real need for falsies and wigs.
'They all have some female they are close to
- mother, sister, female relative, girlfriend,
friends. At least one wrestler on the team has
already been through this with his mother.
Through early detection she is a survivor of five
years and counting. It is hard for any of them to
realize the impact on their life if that person was
no longer in their life."
So, a portion of tonight's proceeds will be
donated to the area organization that offers free
mammograms for those in need, Baxter said.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the pageant is slat-

and cart at The Golf Club and Amelia River Golf
Club, seven nights in a Gatlinburg, Tenn., chalet,
two nights at Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C.,
and several area stores and restaurants.
"They practice hard every afternoon, but
they will clean up and put on dresses Friday
night for two good causes," Baxter said.

Braces cheaper, more effective

than taping up athletes'ankles

t is a pretty common practice for football
players to have their ankles taped before
games. I think the player is hoping to pro-
tect the ankle, but I also believe taping is
one of the many traditions within football. You
know, you get strapped up before you head
into battle.
For a long time, many doctors including
myself have encouraged schools to stop
spending so much money on tape and encour-
age the players who want or need some ankle
protection to switch over to braces. They tend
to work better and are much cheaper in the
long run.
A sprain is an injury to a ligament, the
fibrous connection between two bones. Ankle
sprains are graded based on the degree of
stretch or tearing to the ligaments that hold
ankle bones together. Most commonly these
are over-stretch or partial tear injuries and less
commonly are they a complete tear or rupture
of the ligaments.
For all severe ankle sprains, X-rays should
be obtained to rule out a fracture. In some cir-
cumstances, I may also order an MRI to obtain
additional information about the ankle, such as
to evaluate the cartilage surfaces of the bones
or to look for any other associated injuries.
A study by the sports medicine program at
Wake Forest University studied 300 of their
football players over an eight-year time span.
The results of the study showed that in a brace
a player was three times less likely to turn an
ankle compared to a player who was taped.
Also, it was noted that braced players got back
to play on average three days faster than their
taped counterparts. ,
During the period of the study, there were
115 ankle sprains in the taped group as com-

pared to 43 in the braced
Ankle sprains are consid-
ered one of the most com-
o mon injuries in sports and
account for approximately a
fourth of all missed time
from participation.
Interestingly, when a player
was braced, there was no dif-
ference in injury rate

Some schools are getting the message and

he must supply it himself. Some schools have
seen a reduction in expenses by thousands of
dollars by taking this approach. A pair of

For the News-Leader
The Island Chamber Singers
will perform "Choral
Masterworks" on Friday, Nov. 21
at 8 p.m,and Sunda;. Nov. 23 at 3
p.m. Botti concertss will be sung at
the Amelia Plantation Chapel,
located on the Amelia Island
Plantation. The concert will fea-
ture "favorites" from a variety of
composers from the 18th and 19th
centuries. An instrumental ensem-
ble of strings, organ and timpani
will accompany the choir.
The pieces being performed
come from oratorios, Requiems,
sequences, a Eucharistic hymn
and a Gloria. The term oratorio
refers to a work that in many ways
is similar to opera without staging.
Like opera, there are arias, ensem-
ble numbers; recitatives and cho-
ruses. Typically, the texts were
sacred, but non-liturgical. In other
words, they were not performed in
church during the Mass. Did you
ever wonder why they call these
works oratorios? It actually comes
from the practice of singing such
works in the local "oratory" that
was a public space often connected
with the church but one in which
the rules for strict worship did not
apply. So you could sing "The

Original beach music

For the News-Leader
John Gilbert Sr. grew up in Fernandina
Beach during a time when listening to
"beach music" was all the rage. And
beach music in the '50s and '60s didn't
have anything to do with surfing, like it
did on the other coast. The music of that day
reflected the heart and soul of the African-
American community, and came from artists
like The Drifters, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke,
The Coasters, and numerous other rhythm and
blues groups.
"I can remember going to the Blue Moon on
South Ninth Street, where we'd all hang out, lis-
ten to music by dropping a dime in the juke-
box, and dance long before the Carolina Shag
was even invented," Gilbert said with a smile.
After serving in the military and working for
his uncle, Gilbert started his own business,
Professional Services of Jacksonville. That led
to a spin-off, Amelia Island Productions, which
produced a radio show called "Fernandina's
Black Beat," operated out of a place the kids
named Mister G's a place where they could
hang out. His life had come full-circle. Almost.
Gilbert first saw The Original Drifters when
they performed at the Jacksonville Fair in 1992.

L'Enfance du Christ (1854).

Maxine to say, "If I can ever help you out in any
way, give me a call."
They saw one another several times over
the years, butit wasn't until this year that
Gilbert felt the need to call asking if The
Original Drifters would come to Amelia Island
to raise funds for his non-profit organization,
America's Youth.
Porter said the group would be passing
through the area on Nov. 20 and would be will-
ing to perform. To help with the event, Gilbert
called upon Mark Kaufman, whom he had
come to know through the Amelia Island
Chamber Music Festival's performances at

By seeing The Original
Drifters again, listening to
their classic hits like "Under
the Boardwalk," "Up on the
Roof," "Save the Last Dance
for Me" and "This Magic
Moment," and dancing to
beach music at its best, Gilbert
will not only relive the memo-
ries of his youth, but also raise
the needed give
today's young people a chance
to find a new, positive place to
hang out and learn new skills.

CHAMBER Continuedfrom 1B
Mozart's Requiem (1791), the
"Lacrimosa." Brahms also
wrote a Requiem, but titled it
A German Requiem (1869) in
which he avoided any
Christian references and
selected texts from the Old
and New Testaments. Instead
of placing emphasis on the
soul of the departed, he
sought comfort for the living,
peace for those who were left
behind. In "How Lovely is Thy
Dwelling Place" he employed
a text from Psalm 84. The use
of the word German in the
title refers to the language in
which it was written.
The sequence was poetry
and a medieval form of Latin
chant that worked very well in
polyphonic settings.
Sequences were associated
with certain feast days or sea-
sons of the year and sung dur-
ing the Mass. They were
extremely popular until the
Church decided that there
was too much polyphony in
the Mass and deleted of all
but five of them from the
chant repertory. The five
remaining are Victimae
Paschal Laudes, Veni Sancte
Spiritus, Lauda Sion
Salvatorem, Dies Irae and

Stabat Mater. The choir will
be singing "Quando corpus
morietur," which is one of the
most beloved numbers from
Rossini's Stabat Mater (1842).
Ave Verum (1791) was
written by Mozart during the
final year of his life as an audi-
tion piece for the job of
Kapellmeister of St. Stephen's
Cathedral in Vienna. The cur-
rent Kapellmeister was ill and
Mozart hoped to obtain the
position upon his death.
Interestingly enough, Mozart
died before the Kapellmeister.
The work, however, is one of
his most serene compositions
and well-known by singers all
over the world. It was to be
sung during the celebration of
Holy Communion and there-
fore is referred to as a
Eucharistic hymn.
The final type of piece is an
example of a Gloria. Vivaldi
set three of these works but
the RV589 is by far the most
popular. The text comes from
the second musical piece of
the Ordinary of the Mass and
is the "Gloria in Excelsis Deo"
text. It is broken into phrases
from which the movements
are formed. "Domini fili
Unigenite" is one such move-
ment and is one of the most
enjoyable choral pieces to

sing. It literally bounces. In
the spring of 2009, the Island
Chamber Singers will per-
form another Gloria, that of
John Rutter.
We hope this brief outline
of our concert will stimulate
you to buy a ticket and join us
for "Choral Masterworks"!
The instrumental forces of
organ, strings and timpani
along with the choir will truly
lift you up.
Tickets may be purchased
at the Gateway Chamber of
Commerce, Alexander's, the
Ocean Club, Waterwheel Art
Gallery, the Visitor's Welcome
Center on Centre Street or
from any member of the
group. Tickets will also be
available at the door. Tickets ,
are $15 for adults, $5 for full-
time students and children 5
and under are admitted free.
