DEAN FINNEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
County park now a reality
News Leader . .
A ceremony Wednesday celebrated
the opening of the Goffinsville/Nassau
River Regional Park. The park features
a boat ramp, a fishing pier, nature walk
and a children's play area.
Construction on the park began in
September, on acreage purchased by
the county with the help of the Trust
for Public Land. However, the park
had been on the drawing board much
longer than that, Nassau County
Commission Chairman Barry
Holloway told ceremony attendees.
"This is something we can be proud
of in our county," he said. "This has
been the work of many, many years. I
know the first grant was applied for
way back in 1993."
The park was built on the site of
the East Coast's first oyster canning
plant, built some time after the Civil
War. In 1893, a Russian immigrant
named Saul Goffin purchased the plant.
The land remained in his family until
his granddaughters, Doris Mellion,
Kiki Umla and Barbee Baron, decided
to sell it to the county.
"Ms. Mellion and her family - they
sold us the land," Clerk of Court John
Crawford told the crowd. "And let me
tell you, they could have gotten multi-
ples of what we could offer, but they
wanted to contribute to the county...
We should be proud in Nassauville,
because we're now in 'high cotton'."
Former Fernandina Beach mayor
Charles Albert said the area was spe-
cial to him because he spent his child-
"This is the greatest of pleasures
to me because it brings back so many
fond memories. If you look to your left,
I was born on that creek," he said.
"(The park) is something we can use,
each of us. We don't have to have a
boat - we can throw out a line and
catch a fish. ... When we talk about
ecology, we talk about our relationship
to the environment - and that rela-

Swine flu case at county building?
A possible case of swine flu at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex in
Yulee prompted county officials to
contact the local health department
and inform employees. An employee
at the annex went home this week
with flu-like symptoms, but has not
been confirmed to have swine flu, also
known as H1N1.
"We have called the health depart-
ment about it. They're aware of it and
they've indicated that there's no need
to panic, especially just in light of one
case," said Shannon Crow, research
and communications coordinator for
the clerk of court. "If anyone had any
symptoms, we would send them home
and ask them to stay home for seven
Crow said Judge Robert Foster,
who administers the courts at the
annex, was aware of the case, and all
employees received an e-mail inform-
ing them. The courthouse would not
be closing, Crow said. The sick
employee is not in a position of wide-
spread contact with the public, offi-
Kim Geib, director of the health
department's Disease Control and
Swine flu in the workplace
Preventing the spread of swine flu and other influenza viruses in the
workplace is basically a matter of common sense and good hygiene.
Here are some tips from the Nassau County Health Department and the
federal Centers for Disease Control:
* Cover your cough. Cough into your sleeve or a tissue, not into your
* Disinfect common surfaces like keyboards, telephones, countertops,
doorknobs and bathroom fixtures. Use a disinfectant that is labeled as
effective against influenza viruses.
* Wash hands often, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-
based hand sanitizers can be used if soap and water are not available.
* Stay home if you're sick. The CDC recommends employees with flu-
like illnesses stay home for seven days after symptoms begin or until 24
hours after symptoms end, whichever is longer.
For more information on preventing the transmission of swine flu, visit
Prevention Service, confirmed that
the courthouse had contacted the
department, but said one unconfirmed
case of swine flu was no cause for
"We have a suspected case of swine
flu, but it's a single case and not an out-
break," she said. "We know we're hav-
ing sporadic cases of swine flu
throughout the United States, and it's
going to continue to happen. We've
given them information about swine
flu and how to protect themselves."
Geib said the precautions taken to
keep H1Nlfrom spreading in an office
environment are the same as those
to prevent the spread of traditional
"If you have a case of flu in your
office, what you want to do is clean
common keyboards, telephones. You
can go ahead and wipe it down with
any disinfectant that says it's good
against influenza," she said. "Anyone
who's coughing needs to cover their
cough - coughing into your sleeve or
coughing into a Kleenex and then
washing your hands. Using hand san-
itizer as well - that's effective against
"Every year, most offices have
somebody who's had the flu.... So this
is really no different," Geib added. "If
they have a lot of people who are ill,
the health department will help guide
them through it, just so they can
implement better infection control
Swine flu has been declared a pan-
demic because it is worldwide. The
Florida Department of Health con-
firmed 10 more swine flu deaths on
Wednesday, bringing the total to 22
The most recent deaths included
two 22-year-old males, one in Broward
and one in Sarasota County, two 31-
year-old males, one in Dade and anoth-
er in Polk County, a 42-year-old Palm
Beach County man, 44-year-old man in
Broward, 47-year-old male in Sarasota,
a 49-year-old Monroe County female,
51-year-old Lee County man and 55-
year-old male in Dade.
Florida currently has listed 2,915
confirmed cases of H1N1 swine flu.
Most cases are mild, and pre-existing

A bear crossed the parking lot of
Comfort Suites, 2801 Atlantic Ave.,
Thursday morning. Dean Finney of
Kingsport, Tenn., said two women
were loading luggage into their car
when they came into the hotel lobby
screaming, "Bear! Bear!"
Finney took a photograph (above
left), and off the bear lumbered.
The black bear was sighted numer-
ous times this week on Amelia Island.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission urged the
public to avoid contact, and said oth-
erwise the bear posed no threat.
The bear was seen at Fort Clinch,
Amelia City, Osprey Village, Burney
Park, Summer Beach, Ocean Village
and Fort Clinch again. It was at
Summer Beach 7:30 p.m. Wednesday,
near the Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.
"We put public safety first and the
bear second," said state wildlife biol-
ogist Rebecca Shelton. "(But) It has
shown no signs of nuisance or aggres-
sion. ... We have a very gentle, curious,
tender black bear here."

A new broadcasting policy has been
approved for the city-controlled public-
access television channel.
Four city commissioners approved
Tuesday a Public, Educational and
Government (PEG) policy, which is
meant to give the city more control
over programming of its public-access
channel 29. Commissioner Tim
Poynter was absent.
Starting immediately, there will be
no advertising allowed on the chan-
nel, including candidates running for
public office. Solicitation of funds will
not be allowed. However, religious
groups will be permitted to broadcast
as long as they do not promote mem-
The new policy gives priority to
broadcast of "municipal business of
the city of Fernandina Beach," which
includes event information, public
meetings, job postings, emergency
information and city-related statistics
and data. Other "policy-compliant" pro-
gramming has second priority.
In spite of City Manager Michael
Czymbor advising against it, commis-
sioners also approved the allowance
of religious programming.
Calling religious programming "a
slippery slope," Czymbor said the city
should have a "tighter policy that we
can loosen up."
"I would suggestwe try to be more
narrow in scope," said Czymbor. "That
would be my recommendation."
City Attorney Tammi Bach, who
wrote the new policy, said she allowed
religious programming because she
could not disallow non-profit religious
groups while allowing other non-prof-

Getting a boat loan in a tough economy
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - For boat buyers,
getting a loan to finance a new or used
boat is much tougher these days as many
banks have dropped out of the market.
However, that doesn't mean money is not
available, says the nation's largest recre-
ational boat owners group, BoatU.S.
'The real news is that today's shrink-
ing pool of lenders are simply returning
to the lending standards they had prior to
the sub-prime loan debacle," said Vice
President of BoatU.S. Finance Charm
Addington. "As for lenders like BoatU.S.,
who never focused on riskier loans, there
is still money available for qualified boat
BoatU.S. has these tips on how to get
a boat loan in a tough lending market:
1. Before you start window-shopping,
ensure that all three major credit-report-
ing bureaus - Equifax, Experian and
TransUnion - have your most current
information. By law, these consumer
credit reporting companies must provide
you with a free copy of your credit report,
at your request, once every 12 months.
2. Banks now generally require down
payments in the range of 10-15 percent -
more for boats older than 20 years.
3. Keep an eye on your liquid assets.
Banks today want bor-
rowers to have
enough cash for the
down payment and
sales tax as well as a
safety net or cushion
in case your financial
4. When you find your dreamboat,
know its book value (with all of its
options and accessories). The free Boat
U.S. Value Check service at www.BoatUS.
com/buyer/valueform can help.
5. Gone are the days of "relaxed
guidelines" and "no documentation"
loans. Today's lenders generally look for
two years of banking and income (W-2)
statements, as well as other assets.
6. Don't let "Pre-qualifying" and "Pre-
approval" confuse you. Going to a lender
to pre-qualify simply means a borrower
has their income and assets verified by a
lender first, before a specific boat model
has been chosen. A pre-approval does the
same but also includes the specific boat
model the borrower wishes to purchase.
BoatU.S. recommends getting a pre-
approval as it can help negotiations with a
dealer or seller. However, if you still
aren't quite sure on what boat you'd like
to buy, tell your lender that you'd like to
substitute a similarly priced boat in order
to complete the pre-approval process.

It is the organization's

This gives you flexibility and the upper
hand in boat purchase negotiations.
7. In a hurry? For a speedier boat loan
approval on a new or used boat, ensure
that the loan application is completely
filled out. An empty line significantly
slows the loan process, so have the
boat/engine information readily available
when applying for a loan. Sending in
proof of income up front with the com-
pleted application will also speed loan
processing, as does submitting a pur-
chase agreement. Just ensure the pur-
chase agreement allows you to back out
of the purchase if financing is unavailable.
8. Also, for used boats, most banks
require a survey so you may want to have
a surveyor lined up before you apply for a
loan. However, it's not recommended to
have the survey done before the loan is
approved - wait until your lender asks
you to do so. You'll find a roster of sur-
veyors at www.BoatUS.com/surveyors.

BEAR Continued from 1A
"It either crossed the bridge
or swam here," Shelton said,
and she expects it to swim or
cross back. "They have a very
strong homing instinct, and
they will head for home."
State wildlife officials are
monitoring the bear's move-
ment and expect it to leave the
island. To report a sighting, call
the wildlife alert hotline at 1-
This is the black bear's nat-
ural habitat, Shelton reminded.
"It's a rare opportunity to see
wildlife in their natural habitat."
It is unlawful to shoot a bear.
"Black bears are protected,"
Shelton said. She also noted,
"We've never had a document-
ed human attack by a bear in
the state of Florida."
According to FWC officials,
the bear has been reported in
the North Florida area for sev-
eral weeks. They believe it is a
bear relocated from Palm Beach
County on June 24. He was
released in Pinhook Swamp, in
the northern section of Osceola
Wildlife Management Area in
Baker and Columbia counties,
on June 25. He has been aver-
aging between three and five
miles a day.
This is mating season and
Florida black bears are more
active, looking for mates. "In
addition to looking for a mate,
the bears are also searching for
food sources within their home
range," Shelton said.
"Problems arise when bears
have access to food sources
such as pet foods, garbage, bar-
becue grills, bird seed or live-
stock feed. Bears learn very
quickly to associate people with
food," Shelton said. "Black
bears normally are too shy to
risk contact with humans, but
their strong food drive can over-
whelm these instincts."
Residents can help this bear

Humans and bears
If you see a bear, remain calm.
"Don't run away. Walk calmly toward a building or vehicle
and get inside," said Rebecca Shelton of the Florida Wildlife
Service. "If you have children or pets, bring them inside, too.
You also can encourage the bear to leave. Bang pots and
pans, or blow an air horn or whistle. The more stressful a
bear's encounter with you, the less likely it is to come back."
If a bear is in a tree, leave it alone. Remove people and
dogs from the area. The bear usually will come down and
leave after dark when it feels safe.
Properly storing or securing garbage discourages bears.
Birdfeeders and grills should be stored in a secure place,
such as a garage or a sturdy shed. Garbage should be
placed outside on morning of pickup rather than the night
"Another way people can help is to feed pets indoors or
bring in dishes after feeding," Shelton said. "Keep barbecue
grills clean, and store them in a secure place. Picking ripe
fruit from trees and picking up fallen fruit removes another

become a problem by properly
storing or securing garbage,
barbecue grills and pet dishes.
Relocating the bear is not a
good option, because there are
few places to relocate bears
where they will not encounter
"Many people wonder why
we 'simply' don't move the bear
to another area," Shelton said.
"The problem with that is bears
have a rather strong homing
instinct, and moving bears
exposes them to increased
potential for vehicle collisions
and often puts them in another
bear's home range."
Another important reason
for not relocating bears is that it
requires chemically immobiliz-
ing the animal.
"This subjects the bear to
additional stress with no guar-
antees of how it will react
around people before it goes to
sleep or how it will handle the
administered drug," Shelton

'Forgotten War' remembered
Do the dates June 25, 1950,
through July 27, 1953, trigger
any significant memories? What
about the Battles of Inchon,
Bloody Ridge, Heartbreak

Horse, Old Baldy or Pork Chop
They should. This period of
American history and the spe-
cial details of these events,
where lives were forever
changed, are still freshly
embedded in the minds of many
Korean War veterans and their
In the U.S. in 1950, the
Korean War was officially
termed a police action. It was
known as the Korean Conflict
rather than a war largely to
avoid the necessity for
Congress to officially declare
war. To some Americans it's
also referred to as "The
Forgotten War" or "The
Unknown War" because it
receives far less attention than
other wars of the 20th century.
For Americans the Korean
War was an escalation of bor-
der clashes between two rival
Korean regimes that began on
June 25, 1950, when the North
Korean Army assaulted south-
ern Korea. Hostilities contin-
ued until the armistice, a cease-

while the U.S. administered
affairs for the south. Historians
surmise the intention of both
major powers was to establish a
stable and unified Korea, how-
ever before withdrawing forces
from the area they wanted to
leave behind a nation favorable
to their ideology. The Soviets
desired a communist Korea,

North Korea was initially
backed only by the Soviet Union
until China felt threatened by
the U.N. offensive. It worried
that forces would not stop at the
border between northern Korea
and China. The Chinese gov-
ernment argued that by mak-
ing Japan its main war base in
the Far East, launching an inva-
sion against northern Korea
and the Chinese province of
Taiwan, and carrying out active
intervention in other Asian
countries, the United States was
building up a military encir-
clement of China. China warned
American leaders it would inter-
vene to protect its national secu-
rity. The day after American
troops crossed the 38th parallel
Chairman Mao Zedong issued
orders to assemble the Chinese
People's Volunteer Army.
Finally, on July 27, 1953, a
Korean armistice was estab-
lished. The ceasefire agreement
ended the fighting, but a formal
peace treaty has never been
completed, still leaving the two
Koreas separate to this day.

Korean War Service Medal. In
1951, the medal was originally
offered by the ROK to United
Nations forces serving in Korea
and adjacent waters, but U.S.
law prohibited the military from
wearing any medals issued by
foreign governments. In 1954
the law changed, however most
members eligible for the medal
had already exited the military.
In 1998, commemorating the
50th anniversary of the Korean
War Armistice, the ROK
renewed its original offer of
awarding Korean War veterans
this service medal. Veterans of
any branch of service or family
members of deceased veterans
may get more information for
issue of the medal by calling
the AFPC at 800-525-0102.
The U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs states actual
hostilities occurred from June
27, 1950 to July 27, 1953.
However, Congress extended
the war eligibility benefit period
to January 31, 1955, and records
indicate 6.8 million Americans
served the Korean War effort
between June 27, 1950 and
January 31, 1955. It records
54,200 American deaths, 33,700
of which were actual battle
deaths; 7,140 members were
POWs, 4,418 of those returned
to the U.S., 2,701 died and 21
refused assistance for return-
ing to American soil. A not-so-
surprising statistic is that there
are 131 recipients of the
Congressional Medal of Honor
among Korean War veterans.
Floridians have a Korean
War Memorial in Tallahassee.
The tribute contains the "Circle
of Life," an upright, open-ended
circular display. Next to this
structure lies a broken fragment
engraved with the names of
Floridians killed in action. Had
the circle been completed it
would represent the purity of
life. The memorial personifies
the fallen, showing how the
Korean War interrupted the
lives of so many.
Many Hollywood movies
like "Battle Circus" with
Humphrey Bogart, "The Bridge
at Toko-Ri" starring William
Holden and "Battle Hymn" fea-
turing Rock Hudson used the
Korean War as their theme.
Those movies are rarely viewed
nowadays, but that doesn't
mean we'll ever put the Korean
War out of our minds. I know
my family won't; my dad was a
Purple Heart recipient during
the Korean War.
To the Korean War veterans,
I say thank you. Your support to
our country during this time
will never be forgotten. I
emphatically believe it is not a
"Forgotten War" and it never
will be. To families who lost
service members while sup-
porting this devastating conflict,
I salute your loved one. They
fought courageously and with
dignity in the name of the
United States of America. For
the youth of today, remember
this war and all others. Always
strive for peace and democra-
cy, and foremost, never forget
the sacrifices made or the lives
So on Monday, July 27, 56
years after the Korean War
Armistice, let's spend a few
moments and remember all
Americans, particularly those
of the Korean War era that
served in the military, were
killed or wounded in action,
held as POWs and those still
listed as MIA.

A new man in my life
I have been keeping a
secret from you, Gentle
Readers. There is a new man in
my life I have neglected to tell
Late one February after-
noon, the Curtins were driv-
ing by the Nassau Humane
Society on Airport Road when
we spotted several dog walkers
out with their charges. "I want
to meet that dog," I said, and
pointed to a small black and
white dog with large ears.
Our beloved Demonic Duo
was long-gone, and our dog-
less house had grown larger
and emptier every day. We had
visited Lynda Mixson at RAIN
and the litter she'd named after
Greek and Roman gods. Apollo
was a cute pup, but he was
going to grow 50 pounds too
large. We went to every Yappy
Hour at Falcon's Nest that's
hosted by Bark Avenue Pet
Boutique, and met several vol-
unteers from STARS and
their foster dogs. They were
cute too (the dogs, I mean),
but the whistles and bells still
did not sound off. I had also
become a frequent visitor at
the Humane Society; I would
pet and hold as many dogs as
I could lay my hands on, but I'd
always come home empty-
Until I saw Ace that
February afternoon. He was
18 pounds of attitude, giving
his walker a good workout. He
greeted me like a long-lost
friend, and I was a goner. We
were leaving soon for one of
our famous flyabouts, so I pre-
sented myself and my check-
book at the Humane Society
before we left town to put a
deposit on the dog. We spent
the entire trip trying to come
up with a perfect name for him,
but by the time we returned
to Paradise, we knew that he
already had one.
Ace was waiting for us
when we returned, and we
now faced the medical chal-
lenge the society had warned
us about. Ace had a serious
case of heartworms. We could
foster him during the treat-
ment; if it was successful, we
could then adopt him.
Dr. Gilbert at Nassau
Veterinary Clinic in Yulee
made sure that Ace never real-
ized that he was at the vet's.
Instead of placing him on the
exam table, she and her tech
got down on the floor with him.
Lots of treats and one quick
shot later, the play date was
over. And so
it went for
of his recov-
us to keep
him as quiet as possible, but he
always went a little crazy at the
clinic when he saw Ashley, his
fav-o-rite tech in the whole
Ace was declared heart-
worm-free this April, and the
Curtins promptly adopted him
into his forever home. He has
grown stronger, healthier, and
happier each day.
It didn't take us long to real-
ize that this is a very gregari-
ous dog. He demands to meet
and greet everyone we see on
our walk. He bestows puppy
kisses on the humans within
tongue range, and strains at
the leash to exchange sniffs
with the dogs. Since he is an
only dog, at least for now, we
grew concerned that he might
grow lonely, so it was off to the
Nassau Humane Society's Dog
Park. We have become fre-
quent visitors, and it is round-
ing out his social life quite nice-
ly. There are separate exercise
areas for both large and small
dogs; the small dogs can visit
the pond and its waterfall,
while the larger ones can play
in a Milk Bone-shaped pool.
Neat, huh? Ace isn't too inter-
ested in the water, but he does
enjoy a good romp.

I have always been an advo-
cate of animal rescue groups,
and this latest adventure has
only cemented my high regard
for both these organizations
and the people who rescue the
animals. These tough eco-
nomic times are proving to be
equally tough for these groups.
Pets have become luxuries
some families can no longer
afford, so the number of turn-
ins has surged.
This surge means that this
is an excellent time to find that
four-legged friend you've been
searching for; everyone I have
talked to has an overabun-
dance of critters. This over-
abundance also means that
now is a great time for you to
throw a little extra support at
your favorite group. Towels,
food, toys, treats, and of course
money, are always welcome.
Time is always the most
valuable commodity that you
can volunteer, the one that is
always in the shortest supply.
And who knows, becoming a
foster parent or a dog walker
may benefit you just as much
as it does the four-legger! I'm
sure your own dog would enjoy
a play date at the Dog Park -
just be sure to look for me and

out of 23 meetings between July

Adams, who is CEO of
Family Support Services, which
runs the foster care systems in
Jacksonville and Nassau
County, said his job requires
travel that often conflicts with
the board meetings.
"I've been out of town a lot of
those times," he said. "...
Unfortunately there's been a
conflict with my other job as
we've taken on new business.
But we're going to make an
effort to send other people."
Adams added that he had
considered stepping down from

ney and the superintendent
about resigning at one point,"
he said. "The attorney was

asked Adams to stay. "Jim's
been a very integral part of our
success as a school district," he
said. "He's very knowledgeable.

about 12 years now, and I think
has been very successful in that
Ruis also said that he and
Adams had discussed strategies
to ease the scheduling conflicts
caused by Adams' position at
Family Support Services.
"I think that certainly he'll
get back on track with regard to
his attendance, and be able to
participate a lot more than he
has in the past," Ruis said.
"He was certainly concerned
about his inability to attend
more regularly for that
period of time, and I would
expect that to improve. ... He's
indicated to me that he's trying
to coordinate some of the
activities he's been involved
in and to delegate those to oth-
ers. I'm sure he'll be able to do
Ruis added that in his opin-
ion, Adams' position in the fos-
ter care system was a boon to
the school board.
"I think because of that, it
gives him an insight into a lot of
issues with children," he said.
"It provides us with some input
and feedback in that regard. I've
known him for the past 12 years
or so to be very conscientious
and diligent in trying to help
children in all regards."
Adams said he felt he felt he

after careful consideration, I do
think that I can continue to be
effective," he said.

What a long, strange trip it's been
Michael Parnell and I sat down over
iced tea - I don't drink the good stuff
and I'm too cheap to buy it for others
- and talked about a concept for a guest col-
umn that would run every couple of weeks.
Years ago, I was a newspaper reporter.
Someone told Parnell that I might be a good
person to tap for an occasional guest column.
He should've put on his hip waders at that
point, or at the very least turned tail and run.
But he didn't and so, over numerous rounds of
the house wine of the South and a bunch of tall
tales, Cup of Joe was born.
Parnell didn't place any restrictions on me
and told me to write about whatever I wished.
I tossed out some ideas and told him that what
I'd really like to do with the column once it got
up and running was to mix creative writing
with traditional column writing. One of my
first columns was a first-person piece about an
elderly lady I met on the street in St.
Augustine one day. Using her as a device, I
told a story about how people drift unseen in
and out of our lives, and yet these minor char-
acters are as much an integral part of life's big
play as each of us are. Looking back on three
years of columns, that one remains one of my
At some point, I decided to take a crack at
doing the column once a week. I discussed it
with Mike, who's always been most agreeable
with me, and so here we are. After three years,
I've been pouring out a Cup of Joe pretty much
week in and week out. Today,
I pour the last cup.
I've been increasingly rest-
less in a literary sense for the
past few months and perhaps
it's been this column which
has gotten my dormant cre-
ative juices flowing again. I've
been experimenting some
with different kinds of writing
but what I'd really like to do
is write a book.
I know. Everyone wants to
have written a book. Few
have the self-discipline to
actually sit down and churn
one out. And for good reason. It's really hard
work. Just like writing a weekly column is
hard work, especially when trying to balance it
with family life, job and other outside interests.
Like fishing and a local civic organization I
Several weeks ago, I reached the sore deci-
sion to take a sabbatical from my column. I
know I have the skills, tools and education to
write but I want to see if I can press myself
into actually writing a novel. I've actually got-
ten a start on it and figure I have about as
much chance at getting it successfully
published, if and when I finish it, as I do of
winning the lottery. But someone has to hit
the lucky numbers once a week, so who
This column and the people it connected
me with has been one of the most gratifying
experiences I've ever had. I'm deeply grateful
to Mike Parnell and News-Leader Publisher
Foy Maloy for giving me 750 words of space -
and the most butt-ugly photo of me they could
find - week in and week out. No, they never
paid me a nickel. Yes, some fools will actually

It's a columnist's mission to not necessarily
inform readers, but to touch their lives in
some way and make them think. Humor,
satire, sarcasm and just plain old story telling
are all literary devices all columnists employ
to challenge their readers to think and to read
between the lines. I wrote about my heart
attack three years ago. Between the lines was
a story that translates in all languages: No one
gets out alive. As John Donne wrote, "Never
send to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls
I was particularly touched earlier this year
by a letter from a state inmate who took com-
fort in something I wrote. His words were elo-
quent. I was moved by his obvious sincerity
and his stoic acceptance of his fate. The tough-
est enemy with which to make peace is self.
Trust me. I know.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
I am very upset that the city of
Fernandina Beach wants to follow in
the footsteps of Jacksonville Beach
paying for parking. The economy is
crazy, needless to say, so are our light
bills and taxes on our property that is
not lined in gold, and the only thing for
our kids to do is go to the beach. I
may not be a resident of Fernandina
Beach but I do live in this county and
I am outraged that the city would even
consider charging for parking. This
is a tourist attraction and you are going
to drive our business down. They are
struggling as well as the residents of
this county. I say no to the city of
Fernandina Beach for charging the
only thing that keeps our kids out of
I want to take this opportunity to
express my heartfelt gratitude for the
great leadership provided our fair com-
munity by City Manager Michael
Czymbor and City Attorney Tammi
Bach in their efforts to generate
income by establishing parking meters
and assessing fines.
The projected $1.5 million in fees
and $700,000 in fines will be a boon for
our government and their foresight
should be rewarded accordingly. I pro-
pose our commissioners immediately
enact an ordinance doing away with
their meager salaries and benefits and,
in lieu thereof, give them each 20 per-
cent of the profit realized by the city
from the parking-generated dollars.
With the $2.2 million projected they
will each be able to project an income
in excess of $400,000. How lucky we
are to have such gifted individuals and
they should share in our luck.
I would like to express a heartfelt
"thank you" to the sheriff's officer
who assisted my three children week-
end before last while boating.
My son, a safe, cautious and avid
boat owner, needed assistance after a
mechanical problem caused engine
failure. My children, ages 19, 17 and
12, were left sitting in the ocean liter-
ally baking in the mid-90s sun.
After several hours and running
out of drinking water, being ignored by
the Coast Guard and calling and being
told a tow company would have to
come from Jacksonville and cost
approximately $300 (which they didn't
have), a sheriff's officer came to their
aid and rescue. He towed them into
the boat ramp and made sure they
successfully got the boat out of the
water and onto the trailer safely.
To the officer -you know who you
are - thank you so much for going
above and beyond in a situation that
protected my children!
There's a group of people on the
island that does repair work for those
who cannot do it for themselves. They
are called Builders Care.
Builders Care is a group of men,
women and even young people from
Memorial United Methodist Church
(and the Northeast Florida Builders
Association). I know of this group first-
hand because this group built a ramp
for my sister, Betty Ann Gandy, who
has MS. I could not have done this
job. In the end, they built a ramp so my
sister can get in and out of her house
without any problem. They also built
a landing area so she can sit outside.
There are no words to express our
appreciation and gratitude. Thank you,
Mac Morriss for heading up this proj-
ect, and to everyone else, including
Mac, may God bless each and every
one of you deeply.

Easing the passage
Fifteen years ago I wrote a letter to
the News-Leader thanking all those
who were instrumental in saving my
husband's life. His name was Fred
Purvis. He suffered a heart attack and
was unconscious for some length of
time. The paramedics who came to
our home stabilized him and trans-
ported him to Fernandina where the
hospital emergency team continued
the efforts. He was then transported
to Jacksonville's Baptist Hospital
where he remained in a coma for two
After 10 years of caring for him
with the help of hired sitters and fam-
ily, I found a wonderful place for him
to spend time each day. It was the
Council on Aging Adult Day Care
Facility. He was picked up each day by
caring caravan drivers. At the center,
he was involved in activities and
received a nourishing meal before
returning home in the afternoon. The
staff members were so wonderful and
understanding and I couldn't have
asked for better care. With his health
and mobility declining, I placed him in
the Quality Health Nursing Facility
where he was cared for by dedicated
doctors and staff members. The nurs-
es and nursing assistants were won-
derful and Fred actually seemed to be
content. Living nearby made it con-
venient for me to check on him each
On April 16, Fred passed away due
to heart failure. I want to thank Quality
Health for their quickness in getting
him transported to the emergency
room and for alerting me. Thanks to
all the doctors and emergency crew
who worked on him at Fernandina,
and for the crew aboard Life Flight
who transported him to Jacksonville.
Thanks to Dr. Dillahunt, his heart cath
staff and for all the nurses who cared
for him around the clock for the eight
days he was alive. They made our fam-
ily feel at home, which made his pass-
ing easier for all of us.
Do you understand how our
beloved homeland could become vic-
tim of a huge and devastating depres-
sion to our economy, which will affect
every one of us, and we had little or no
warning from any or few of our many
"Brains" in our syndicated ranks in
the print media or the TV media.
Makes you wonder if they might be
part of the problem?
Unfortunately those who caused
the problem are not the ones who suf-
fer. 'Their cup runneth over" at the
expense of the working class. Our
Constitution provides protection
against bad decisions by the execu-
tive branch of our Government, head-
ed by the president. That is supposed
to be the function of Congress.
JEFF PARKER/FLORIDA TODAY
When Congress gave Bush and
Cheney permission to declare war on
Iraq, it was the beginning of the mess
we are now confronted with. You can't
throw away trillions of borrowed
money on a mission and come away
with only the end of Saddam. It does-
n't take much imagination to call
Halliburton the big winner.
The power to control Congress by
the president comes from the use by
him of campaign contributions he uses
to get them elected.
So much for "legal crooks."
Universal health care
I have heard and seen lots of infor-
mation about the idea of universal
health care. I have some issues that
don't seem to be being addressed:
1. Forcing everyone into a health
program takes away liberty to choose
how you want to run your life. If I was
a healthy, unmarried, 20-year-old with
good auto insurance, why would I want
to pay into a health system I don't want
or need? And to be forced to by the
power of the law is unconscionable.
2. No one is talking about the
impact of 43 million uninsured people
suddenly having access to the coun-
try's medical system. Many of those
currently uninsured are not in the best
of health, many because they have
abused their bodies. What will be the
impact on the 253 million of us, cur-
rently insured, after the 43 million
compete for doctors, hospitals, expen-
sive medical treatment and the like.
Talk to the Canadians about their wait
for just about every medical proce-
dure since they implemented univer-
sal health care. Personally, I am not
willing to see a degradation of my fam-
ily's health support, regardless of the
humanitarian issues involved. This
will probably sound selfish to many,
and I agree it is. But where my fami-
ly's health is concerned I am very self-
3. Universal medical health care is
the last part of the "we will take care
of you" ethos of socialism. It will
remove the last incentive for many to
go to work and remove the drive to
succeed. Go to Europe to see this fact
America's motto is, "Life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness." Don't let
the middle word, liberty, be erased
by another ill-conceived government
Having recently returned from
Canada, I read with interest the weeks
of health care dialogue. The issue was
also prominent in The Globe and Mail,
Canada's national newspaper.
British Colombia has reported a
$360 million gap between budget and
demand. Belt tightening apparently
goes down to one of their health care
providers which reports that it can do
2,000 more MRIs than last year, but
will be held to the 2008 level.
In 2005, the Supreme Court of
Canada issued a landmark judgment
allowing Quebeckers to purchase pri-
vate insurance for three surgical pro-
cedures to be done in private clinics,
thus avoiding the long wait, and by
this September it will be 56. This
firmly establishes a two-tier health
care system. British Colombia and
Alberta are considering the same.
Page 16 of our current health care
proposal prohibits us from purchas-
ing supplemental private health care
A Manitoba native community is

between provincial and national gov-
ernments over dispensing flu supplies;

In Ontario, 227 children were sent
home from three overnight camps
with mild cases of H1N1. The editori-

important others) versus a general
Finally, there is an apparent short-

While our health care system is
not perfect, it has the best quality and
access in the world, according to
WHO. We do have some uninsured,
many who choose not to spend their
money on health insurance. This is
frequently the category that pays noth-
ing but clogs up the emergency rooms
with non-emergencies. For the truly
indigent there is public aid, which pays
for routine and emergency care giving
the hospital and physician some nom-
If one looks at page 11 of the cur-
rent proposal, we see that we are
allowed to keep our current insurer,
but if we change employers or loose
insurance, we only can have the nation-
al health insurance policy. We are
never permitted to apply to another
company, which as intended, will run
the private insurance companies out of
business, leaving only insurance from
the bloated government. At this
point, we would be just like our north-
ern neighbors getting authorized
health care via government officials,
lowering our current standard of care
and degrading the status of MD to
that of a robot. How long would it be
before elder care is limited as cost cut-
ting? What happened to our
Constitution and Bill of Rights? How
did they become irrelevant? And I
have not even addressed the cost of

Our country's future
Mr. President, please stop. Stop
trying to undo what my parents,
grandparents and their grandparents
fought and worked so hard for to give
me the opportunity to pursue my
dream unfettered with government
intervention into all aspects of living in
our great country. Stop the redistrib-
ution of wealth, for as wealth goes to
the public sector, so goes the liber-
ties earned over two millennia. Stop
thinking intrusion into corporate suc-
cess allows me to succeed. Stop the
forced health care scheme proven to
be yet another anchor to our leader-
ship role in the world. Stop the apolo-
gies to countries that send their stu-
dents to America for education and
their workers for dream fulfillment.
Stop the management by poll and
begin substantive policy design based
on (a) principled foundation poured
by our forefathers.

the discussion. Welcome dissent.

agree with, for they have merit and

If what you are so earnest in trying
to achieve is the right answer, it will
happen. Americans will rally. But, for
now, at this moment in the history of
our country a unilateral approach to
the significant challenges we face is
not the way.
We stand on those broad shoul-
ders of our ancestors; we feel their
calluses, remember their sacrifices

the loss of uniformed heroes.
It's time to stop and pause. Please.

FRIDAY, JULY 24,2009 / NEWS-LEADER
A love that left too soon
Lord, open my eyes and show me the
areas of my life that do not please you and
give me the strength, grace and wisdom to
remove any sin or weight that would prevent
our close fellowship. Felicia Holmes-Way was
happy, loving, giving and free-spirited. Even
during her failing health, she never stopped
showing her love.
A love that no one else can duplicate has
been removed from our presence, only by
her maker himself. There was nothing any-
one needed help with that she herself did not
go to them, even if she heard it through
someone else. She had one very large family,
which included all people. It didn't matter if
you were black or white, her heart surely was
full of love for you.
No one was obligated to return that love.
It was very plain she did it all from her heart.
She gave of her time, money and self because
people around her were more important than
she was. Helping others was when she was
In order to help others, she bowed in wor-
ship and praise before the heavenly father,
covered herself with the blood of Jesus Christ
and claimed the protection of his blood for
others. She surrendered herself completely
in all areas of her life, took a stand against the
working of the devil that would hinder her
from serving him.
Even during her illness, Felicia continued
to be a blessing to others. She encouraged
them to tear down the strongholds of the
devil against their minds, surrendered her
mind to his blessed Holy Spirit, knowing he
had not given her the spirit of fear, but of
power, of love and of a sound mind. She said,
"I resist the spirit of fear in the name of Jesus,
the son of the living God, and I refuse to fear,
refuse to doubt, refuse to worry, because I
have authority. I claim complete and absolute
victory over the forces of darkness in the
name of Jesus, and I bind the devil and com-
mand him to loose my peace, joy, prosperity
and every member of my family for the glory
of God, and, by faith, I call it done."
We visited Felicia wherever she was, but
when we got there, she took
over, giving God praise for
her life, family and friends.
She knew who God was and

she loves oh, so much. For all of the work

Reading and writing are to the
mind what diet and exercise are
to the body Just as food nourish-
es the body, so too does reading
nourish the mind And, just as
exercise strengthens the body so
too does writing strengthen our
mind When we write, we are
forced to make our ideas clear,
and this mental exercise
improves our mind Of course, we
should pay careful attention to the
particular quality of what we are
reading and writing since much of
today's popular reading material
is of questionable value, and not
all writing is equally strenuous
Exercise for the mind We should
seek out books which will teach
us something or that will inspire
us to become a better person,
and then we should try our hand
at writing things which will like-
wise teach or inspire others So,
we should consider turning off the
television and instead read a
good book, and then tell some-

Tunnels, water and working toward each other
cold water, I knew we were
in for an adventure. With
my mom clinging to my
belt from behind and unknown voic-
es echoing through the dark tunnel
in front of us, history had called and
we had answered.
I love exploring - always have
and, I suppose, always will. This par-
ticular excursion had taken a small
group of pilgrims and myself to one
of the most fascinating sites in all of
Israel - Hezekiah's Tunnel. As we
waded through knee-deep water
with only a small flashlight and each
other to lean on, we couldn't help
but wonder how they had built it
some 2,700 years ago.
Created during a season of trou-
ble, the tunnel is one of the great
wonders of the ancient world. Its
story is a fascinat-
ing one. At a time
was facing an
S from the Assyrian
Hezekiah moved to
protect the city's
only water source -

NOTES The problem was
no easy one to fix.
With the spring on
Pastor the outside of the
Rob Goyette city wall, and the
prospect of his peo-
ple being trapped inside, King
Hezekiah knew there was only one
thing to do - build a tunnel, cover
the spring and bring the water
inside the city walls.
Unlike most ancient sites, the
people who built this one actually
chiseled the record of how they built
it on the tunnel's walls. I suppose
they wanted future generations to
marvel at their success just like they
Starting at two opposite ends,
they dug through solid bedrock for a
distance of 1,750 feet. Think about it.
With no modern tools to chart their
course, they simply chiseled and lis-
tened for those who were working
from the opposite end. According to
their own account, when they finally
reached each other, they were off
course by several feet. So, they both
made sharp 90-degree turns and
kept on working. They chiseled a lit-
tle more, listened a little more and
finally broke through! What a cele-
bration that must have been. When
the group I was with finally reached
that part of the tunnel, you could
almost hear the ancient shouts of
victory still bouncing off the stone
To me, the story carries a great
message for the churches of our
community. Let's face it, though we
may come at things from different
angles, at the end of the day we're
all working toward the same thing -
to bring God's gracious provision to
our city. That said, I rejoice to see
more and more congregations work-
ing together for the cause of Christ.
I'm confident that if we'll keep at it,
and do a good job of listening to
each other, it's only a matter of time
before we'll see some real break-
Yes, I know, the closer we get
we'll all have to acknowledge that
we've missed the mark a little bit,
but so what. I'd rather humble
myself, make the adjustment and get
on with the business of letting God's
Anyway, as is the case with many
of my articles, I end in places I don't
expect. I just want to encourage
those of you out there who are faith-
fully chiseling away. Your labors are
not in vain. As for me, and the con-
gregation that I pastor, we want to
say thanks for all your hard work.
We hear you out there hammering
away at your part of the tunnel and
appreciate your service for the King.
Future generations are sure to
rejoice because of your diligent

This American Agave plant, aka Century Plant,
reached 40 feet as it bloomed in front of the Powers'
family home on South Fletcher Avenue over the July
4th weekend. "It has been planted 15-plus years and
never bloomed," said John Powers. The plant's name
is derived from its habit of blooming infrequently.
After it dies it re-grows itself from shoots formed at its
base. The plant is indigenous to Mexico and is consid-
ered rare in North Florida.

Precious Gems and treasures at
Amelia's Fine Jewelry
Gigi Grubner has been involved in the jewelry industry since
1991, working in her family's jewelry store in upstate New York.
Armed with a college degree in Fine Arts with courses in business
management, marketing and advertising, Grubner began Amelia's
Fine Jewelry in 2007 with "$50 and a dream."
A full service jeweler, Grubner and employees Caroline Sosnoski
and Gianinna Cooper offer custom designed jewelry, redesign of
existing pieces, and repairs and remounts. They also buy gold and
do selective consignment jewelry.
"We carry new and estate jewelry," said Grubner. "Estate jew-
elry pieces have fascinating histories."
Amelia's Fine Jewelry also carries pieces by renowned jewel-
ry artists such as Simon G and Denny Wong, as well as pieces hand-
crafted by local and regional artists.
A new offering for coin collectors is America's first silver dol-
lar used and accepted as legal tender in the American colonies.
Treasure hunters might be interested in authentic sunken treas-
ure from the 110-foot Spanish galleon, the Nuestra Sefiora De
Atocha, a Mel Fisher find which sank off the Florida Keys in 1622.
Another oceanic treasure Grubner stocks is jewelry made with
the rare and beautiful Larimar stone. This one source gemstone
from the Dominican Republic re-min-
eralizes from volcanic rock to a
unique aqua blue color.
The star of the
show is a specially
commissioned charm in
the shape of Amelia
Island, with a diamond
denoting the historic district.
Grubner runs her shop in a
relaxed atmosphere, free of high
pressure tactics. With 19 years in the
jewelry industry, she finds her career
rewarding and wants to continue to offer
unique, fine quality jewelry and exceptional

his cycling comeback
return to cycling after coming out of
retirement. Armstrong had won the
Tour de France, the 23-day, 2,125-
mile journey through Switzerland, Germany
and France seven straight times from 1999-
2005 before retiring. He then returned after 3
1/2 years and, at 37, began cycling again in
hopes of another victorious ride through
Paris July 26. At present, he is in fourth place,
and the fact that Armstrong remains at the
top of his game after his time away is remark-
able. He also has had to deal with a crash in
March, at which time he fractured his clavicle
and required surgery.
Armstrong's story continues to amaze
both the sporting and the medical world
because he was given less than a 40 percent
chance of survival years ago when it was dis-
covered he had advanced testicular cancer.
In 1996, Armstrong first mentioned to his
doctor a few things that seemed somewhat
embarrassing to him at the time. He reported
sore nipples, a swollen testicle and blood in
his mouth when he coughed. Testing
revealed he had a very advanced form of tes-
ticular cancer, which has spread through his
body and into his brain and lungs.
Armstrong thought his life was over and
he underwent brain surgery, chemotherapy
and had a testicle removed. But he has beat-
en cancer and his story has informed millions
around the world and likely saved thousands
Testicular cancer is the most common can-
cer in American men between the ages of 15
and 35, but can strike any male at any time.
The most common sign is a painless mass on
the testicle. Unfortunately, denial and embar-
rassment surrounding the disease contribute
to making it one of the least talked about can-
cers, but it is highly treatable. Well-known
testicular cancer survivors include skater
Scott Hamilton, Philadelphia Philly John
Kruk, comedian Tom Green and actor
During my residency I took care of a 25-
year-old man whose testicle had become the
size of a grapefruit before he came in.
Because of his denial, his cancer was too
advanced and he died. Had
he presented earlier, his life
likely would have been

If you find a mass, a bump or a lump on

Unfortunately, an estimated 400 men die of

FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA
This is not your college
with your drinks
on museum tour
"spirited" than this, a group
of 12 ticket holders to
Fernandina's newest walk-
ing tour learned Tuesday night.
Standing outside the old train
depot downtown, they pulled out
their IDs to show Amelia Island
Museum of History docent Charlie
Corbett they were indeed old enough
to embark on the "Original Historic
Fernandina Beach Pub Crawl" - open
to anyone age 21 and older.
The tour, created by Corbett and
fellow docents Steve Sansbury and
Chris Rasch, is a crawl in the truest
sense, ambling through downtown
Fernandina with frequent stops to
admire the architecture, ask ques-
tions and learn about the history
behind the storefronts. Just when
your mind is wandering to thoughts
of something cold on a hot summer
night, you've arrived at one of four
watering holes on the tour - The
Palace Saloon, O'Kane's Irish Pub &
Eatery, the new KariBrew Brewpub
& Grub and Pablo's Grill & Cantina.
Corbett, a native Fernandinan,
starts where the city itself did - at the
foot of Centre Street, home to the
Amelia River with its deep harbor
and "sweet water" that attracted
sailors the world over. Add to the mix
David Yulee, founder of the Florida
Rail Road Co., who relocated
Fernandina a few blocks from Old
Town to accommodate his ambitious
plans, and you have the birth of
industry in what had been a sleepy
By the turn of the 20th century
Fernandina boasted 11 hotels, more
than 20 bars and three steamers a
day chock a block with passengers,
"With all the ships in the harbor,
they needed a cold beer when they
arrived," he said. And along came the
Palace Saloon, created by Louis G.
Hirth in 1903 as an upscale "captain's
bar" replete with mustache towels so
gentlemen could wipe the froth from
their beards. Inside, visitors today
can enjoy a drink and ogle over the
mosaic tile floors, tin ceilings and
massive gas lamp that still hangs
over the 40-foot bar. Murals, commis-
sioned by Hirth "to class the place
up," still grace the walls, as do carved
mahogany caryatids. Unlike other
establishments that served popcorn
or peanuts, Hirth preferred peel and
eat shrimp, which was set out in
large bowls on the bar.
Back on Centre Street, Corbett
stands in the pocket park beside
what is today Seattle's Best coffee
shop and tells how it used to hold the
liquor store with the infamous "Cat
Crack" - the alley down which black

people could buy their liquor during
segregation. At a small window on
the side of the building they could
ask for their drink of choice, a "bull"
if they wanted a Schlitz beer, or a
"hog" if they preferred Gordon's gin,
for example, since many were not
afforded the opportunity to learn to
read and knew only the logo on the
label. An oil drum stove kept them
warm in winter, and an old car seat
provided a place to sit.

At O'Kane's, a short lesson on the
history of bootlegging and Prohibi-
tion seems appropriate, since Irish
monks were the first to develop
whiskey in the sixth century by dis-
tilling grains. As the Irish immigrat-
ed, so did their "pot liquor," as it
came to be called in America.
"This was an economical measure
- they knew how to make liquor and
it was cheap. They were not flouting
the law - it was liquor by poor people
for poor people," said Sansbury of
the local folk who set up stills.
"Locally, our moonshine was done
in the west part of the county," said
Corbett. "In North Florida alcohol
making was very popular and corn

of a past production, "It is a

dialogue, clunky female
