came under fire last fall for state vio-
lations of patient care lost her job on
Sharon Jamison, longtime head of
the Care Centers of Nassau, former-
ly the Amelia Island Care Center, is no
longer with the company, said Mike
Campbell, director of operations for
Eidetik, Inc., which provides mana-
gerial services for the facility.
Campbell would not comment on
the specific reasons for Jamison's dis-
missal, whether it was related to the
latest state inspection June 22 that
found similar violations of patient care
to those cited the previous two years,
according to records of the Agency for
Health Care Administration, or if it
had to do with other allegations.
"There are some management

changes being
made and those
changes are in the
best interest of our
clients first andc
foremost," said
Campbell. "I'm not
at liberty to say
what all the
Jamison changes are going

"but we feel the
changes in structure will provide bet-

Under Jamison's tenure the center,
now located in a series of newly built
group homes in Yulce and
Nassauville, was cited in August 2009
when worker allegations of serious
lapses in client care were substanti-
ated in a state inspection.

During a surprise visit that month,
state Agency for Health Care
Administration officials found one res-
ident suffering from "multiple decayed
teeth" despite a dentist's recom-
mendation they be extracted more
than a year earlier; failure by staff to'
provide proper nutrition as outlined in
doctor and registered dietician orders;
and inadequate measures to contain a
highly contagious staph infection.
That followed a 113-page report
by the Agency for Health Care
Administration in September 2008
that found such serious threats to the
health and safety of the clients that the

Because of one commissioner's
misgivings, Fernandina Beach
Commissioners voted 3-2 Tuesday to
reverse a decision to appoint local
attorney Clinch Kavanaugh to the
city's Historic District Council.
Commissioners, who routinely
appoint committee members after a
recommendation from that commit-
tee, had voted 3-2 at a previous meet-
ing to override the HDC's choice of
Chuck Hall as an alternate member
and choose Kavanaugh instead.
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter and
Commissioner Eric Childers stuck
with their original votes to appoint
Kavanaugh at Tuesday's meeting.
But apparently Commissioner
Arlene Filkoff regretted Kavanaugh's
appointment after hearing complaints
about him from residents aid HDC
Kavanaugh and Filkoff talked the
day after the appointment, and she
later asked to have a reconsideration
of his appointment put on the com-

mission agenda. She did not comment
publicly Tuesday to explain her move.
Resident Amy Durham Hubbard
spoke in support of Kavanaugh, who
represented her in ai quasi-judicial
HDC hearing regarding the use of
Hardieboard siding for her house in
the historic district.
Hubbard reproached commission-
ers for not caring about the difficulties
she endured to win approval for the
improvements she had made on her
house and that city officials had at one
time denied her civil rights.

Seaside eatery

seeks parking

A portion of First Avenue at Sadler
Road that is a public right of way may
become a roadway to be used as park-
ing to accommodate an expansion of
Sliders Seaside Grill on South Fletcher
City commissioners discussed the
possibility of developing the roadway
at their Tuesday meeting. Vice Mayor
Tim Poynter had reservations-about
the number of parking spaces needed,
as well as length of the roadway.
The roadway, which would have
on-street municipal parking, would be
fully paid for by Seaside Amelia, owner
of Sliders.
The conceptual plan was brought
before the Technical Review Commit-
tee in July. The off-site parking would
require.a variance from the city since
that area is zoned C-1, a commercial
district that only allows on-site parking.
Municipal parking is only allowed in
the Central Business District.
According to local architect John
Cotner, who is designing the project,
Seaside Amelia is planning to make
the second floor of Sliders into a raw

bar and banquet room, with a second-
floor porch across the east side with
views to the ocean. The expansion
requires additional parking spaces
according to city code.
Cotner suggested at the meeting it
would make the most sense to have
the roadway paved north to Cleveland
Avenue, a cross street that-corinects to
South Fletcher Avenue. This would
allow drivers another exit from First
Avenue besides Sadler Road, he said.
"We haven't opened up a public
right of way in a long time," said
Poynter. He said the city should con-
sider relaxing requirements for the
number of parking spaces needed for
commerce. A possible alternative solu-
tion, he said, was creating a dead end
instead of opening the road up to
According to Cotner, 60 additional
parking spaces are needed, but 16 can
already be provided by
satellite parking, and 44
would be within the new roadway. It
would require another variance, he
said, to get the number of parking
spaces reduced.

The American Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals (ASPCA) sponsors
October as Adopt-a-Shelter-
Dog Month to encourage
Americans to turn their hous-

shelter dog. Each year, mil-
lions of dogs enter our
nation's shelters, yet of the
almost 59 million owned dogs
in this country, fewer than 20
percent are shelter adoptees.
Pomerance, an activist who
has owned more than 40 shel-
ter dogs in her lifetime, thinks o
it's a shame that more people
don't adopt from a shelter,
because the most faithful,
healthy and loving dogs are
waiting there for new homes.

go to animal shelters to adopt

City, county to pay

for beach monitoring


The city of Fernandina
Beach and Nassau County
agreed Aug. 10 to pay about
$35,000 for beach monitoring
as part of a shore restoration
project. The county commis-
sion, however, declined to dis-
cuss the city's contention that
the county still owed money
for monitoring in 2009-10.
The issue arose during a
meeting of the Amelia Island
Joint Local Planning Agency, a
body comprising the city and
county commissions.
The monitoring is part of
the Nassau County Shore
Protection Project In 2008, the
project widened and restored
3.8 miles of beach from Fort
Clinch State Park to south of
Sadler Road at Seaside Park.
The federal government
picked up about 79 percent of
the project's $15 million price
tag. The Florida Departmninl
of Environmental Protectin
pa3id"'10perccnf; andt tie
remaining 11 percent was
shared by Fernandina Beach
and Nassau County.
The city asked the cou nt r
last year to agreeto pay hall of
the $211,000 for three year-s of
monitoring, but County
Commissioner Danny Leeper
said he couldn't find any doc-
umentation that said the coun-
ty had been consulted about
the city's negotiations with the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection or its
contract with Olsen Asso-
ciates, the Jacksonville firm
that oversaw construction on
the project.
At theAug. 10 meeting, the
city asked the county to pay
for half of the final year of
required monitoring.
"Ve want to talk about the
third year of the local com-
mitment," City Manager
Michael Czymbor said. "We're
asking tonight to go on record
to confirm our commitments
to the monitoring ... which,
with the city and the county
share comes to about $35,000
apiece, with the state paying
the rest,
County Manager Ted Selby
said the county's contribution
could come from the Amelia
Island Tourism Development
Council,. which sets aside
some of its revenue each year
for beach preservation.
City Commissioner Eric
Childers, however, also want-

said. "(The HDC) is a closed
club, and you have the oppor-
tunity to open it. Cronyism in
the HDC has gone on too
long. Let Clinch be in there."
Kavanaugh told Filkoff that
he was "more than perplexed"
by her reversal, and noted that
her experience in government
was "limited."
"I have never sued the
HDC or the city of Fernandina
Beach," Kavanaugh said, con-
trary to what commissioners
had been told. "This is very
damaging to my reputation....
I'm a lawyer and it damages
my ability to make a living ...

"I find it incredible that we

voted for him to stay on as a
member. "To be on the BOA,
that is probably the most pow-

Kavanaugh said.

tors, including the property use, the just value of property attributable to the parcel and prox-
imity to the beach. A more specific description of the maintenance costs and the method of
computing the assessment for each parcel of real property are set forth in the Initial
Assessment Resolution adopted by the Board on August 13, 2007 and the Preliminary
Assessment Resolution for Fiscal Year 2010-11 adopted by the Board on August 9,2010. Copies
of the Master Capital Project and Service Assessment Ordinance, the Initial Assessment
Resolution, the Final Assessment Resolution, the Preliminary Assessment Resolution for Fiscal
Year 2010-11 and the preliminary Maintenance Assessment Roll are available for inspection at
the office of the Nassau County Clerk of Court, located at 76347 Veterans Way, Yulee, Florida,
The maintenance assessments will be collected on the ad valorem tax bill mailed in November
2010, as authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. Failure to pay the assessments will
cause a tax certificate to be issued against the real property which may result in a loss of title.

Five-Year Accreditation with
no findings or recommenda-
tions. (District-wide accredita-
tion was new in 2006-07, with
only three districts in Florida
qualifying for it. Prior to that,
accreditation was at the
school level, and all of
Nassau's schools have been
individually accredited for
many years.)
Nassau County was
named by the Florida
Coordinated School Health
Partnership as one of only
eight Florida Healthy School
Districts. These eight districts
received the "Silver Award."
Nassau's areas of highest per-
formance were Family and
Community Involvement,
Health Services and Healthy
School Environment.
In August 2009, the
Nassau County School
District was certified as a
StormReady Supporter School
District by the National

the first school district in the
United States to attain this
recognition. In order to be

Construction was com-
pleted (n projects at nine
schools during 2008-09 and
2009-10, and two additional
projects are continuing this
year. These projects added
much needed classroom
space and other educational
facility improvements to the
district's schools. During
these projects (and all NCSB
construction projects), the
school district purchases all
building materials directly
allowing the district to pur-
chase construction materials
tax-fi-ee, resulting in $560,036
of savings during the 2008-09
school year alone. Also, the
school district "pays as it
grows" for major capital
improvements as they are ini-
tiated, thereby not incurring
long-term indebtedness.
The district technology
refresh cycle has resulted in
each classroom and teacher
being equipped with a tablet
PC computer, a document
camera and a presentation
projector to strengthen our
instructional program deliv-
ery. Through the district's
website, Edline, each teacher

ents access to their child's

Additionally impressive is
the fiscal responsibility that
has led the district to provide
a high level of service with
the third-lowest cost per stu-
dent in the state. With the
state Average being $8,625 in
2008-09 (most recent available
data), Nassau has achieved
success with $7,692 spent per
student. When the economy
started its downturn in 2007-
08, the district began to devel-
op strategies to reduce actual
expenses while protecting the
instructional program from
The student offerings in
the schools are as varied ancj
numerous now as they have
ever been. The district has not
had to take desperate steps to
fund our operating budget, as
neighboring districts have, by
eliminating programs such as
elementary music or PE. This
is a significant accomplish-
ment,*especially considering
that 80 percent of the operat-
ing budget is made up of per-
sonnel costs.

instrumental to the continued
economic development of
the area, and we take this
responsibility very seriously.

important to provide pro-

continue to contribute to the
success of our students while
yielding a strong return to tax-
payers on their educational
investment. It is our pledge to

Creamer for

School Board
Muriel Creamer has served ably on the
Nassau County School Board for the past 12
years, seven of those as chair. She points
with justifiable pride to the'fact ours is an
"A" school district with all-A elementary
schools. She cites the district's relatively
tight-fisted economic performance and its
ability to finance new school construction
without taking on debt.
A former school district employee,
Creamer compliments administrators, staff-
and, especially, teachers for their hard work
and achievements. She credits parents, and
the students themselves, for their efforts to
achieve a quality education. The board
works well together, she says, and she's
proud to play her role in that.
Still, after 12 years of good service,
might it not be time for fresh blood?
Frankly, that would be our inclination
despite Creamer's solid: 'ecord.:We would
tend to want-another ,,-iw fac_ ui the board,
which has had only one new member in the
past decade. We would prefer that at least
one of the board members have children in
the district rather than grandchildren.
That is why we took a good look at
Creamer's challenger, Amanda Young. But
we found her wanting.
Young is, well, young, just 34 years old.
She does have a daughter in a public
Nassau County school. She has business
experience. She has learned well, and per-
formed well, for her current boss, State
Rep. Janet Adkins, who as it happens is the
last School Board member to give up her
But Young lacks the wisdom that comes
with experience. We know she would shake
up the board, that she wiuld do her home-
work, that she would bring a critical eye to
school spending. We believe she would be
an ally for teachers, and a firm proponent of
classroom instruction. And yet...
Young has been accused of being a clone
of her boss, Adkins. A tad unfair, perhaps,
but not so far off the mark. As Young points
out, that is not necessarily a bad thing if
what she shares is Adkins' integrity, intelli-
gence, ability to work hard and advocacy
skills. And she does share those attributes.
She also shares Adkins' keen sense for
the politically popular move that sometimes
oversimplifies an issue. In this case, we
speak of the false note Young hit when she
made an issue of illegal immigrants and our
Frankly, there are not large numbers of
illegal immigrant children in our schools,
and we can't count that as one of even the
top two dozen issues before the School
Board. Young was too avid about an issue
that may be red meat to Republicans but is
viewed quite differently by manyDemocrats
and independents. This is not a primary
election but a nonpartisan vote that includes
all registered county voters.
It demonstrated that Young is perhaps
more attuned to politics than policy. Her
.ambition is palpable. But we believe she
needs more seasoning. Young will make a
good school board member or other office-
holder one day, but not today.
Muriel Creamer has served us well and
has the vigor to continue to do so for anoth-
er four years. In this case the incumbent is
the better choice. We urge you to vote for

SDog days here for old Charlie too

"Yes, these are the dog days, Fortunatus,"
the poet W.H. Auden wrote in his poem, Under
Sirius. "The heather lies limp and dead on the
mountain, the altering torrent shrunk to a
soodling thread."
The dog days of late summer are upon us
with a vengeance. The well is as dry as old
bones. When will it end?
I look at my elderly dog, Charlie, dozing
oblivious to his surroundings ever more fre-
quently and wonder, how many days does this
old dog have left? How long before his life,
already stretched as thin as patina on silver,
finally runs its course? Will he still be with us
when the cool, refreshing night breezes of
October blow and we can leave the deck doors
open, or will he be only a fond memory by
Sirius is the brightest star in the heavens -
part of the constellation Canis Major. The big
dog. Charlie's also a big dog. And.though he
shares his particular canine constellation with
two companion Great Danes, he's still the
brightest star in it, and also the oldest. When I
brought him home from a rescue shelter a
dozen years ago, he was a rollicking yearling.
His pedigree is dubious and of a mixed bag
but he cut'a handsome and noble pose with
his honey-colored fur and hi's'dark muzzle. My
boys sometimes lovingly referred to him as
Cheap Charlie because I paid only $60 for him.
Charlie's always been not only our best
friend, but everyone else's. Like a jovial uncle,

he never meets a stranger or
j someone he doesn't instantly
befriend. I was walking him
on the beach one day a few
years ago and a young couple
S" approached. The lady asked
me if she could pet him. She
knelt in the sand and buried
her face in his neck fur and
sobbed. Her companion qui-
CUPOF etly explained that she had a
JOE dog that looked just like
S Charlie which she'd only
recently had euthanized.
Joe Palmer I look at Charlie with his
now snow-white muzzle and his once liquid
brown eyes, growing milky with cataracts, and
ask myself how much longer before my old
Canis Major can burn before he flames out.
He still seems happy most of the time, but
that's when he's not sleeping, which is also
most of the time. He's losing his hearing, has
gotten lame in both hind legs and seems con-
fused occasionally. Sometimes he doesn't
make it off the deck to do his business. I no
longer fuss at him about his incontinence. And
yet, there are days when his star flares bright-
ly and he surprises us with his endurance and
what's left of his vitality. But Charlie's torrent
has shrunk to a soodling thread, and we know
that one day soon we have to make a decision
we're loathe to make.
We've had Charlie longer than we've ever

had any other dog. And though we dearly love
our two Great Danes, Samson and Pretty
Page, Charlie still occupies a special place in
our hearts that neither of his two super-sized
pals can take. I've always disdained people
who keep their dogs until the poor canines are
so senile and decrepit that they're little more
than breathing, addled corpses. And I won't let
Charlie go that way. But when is enough
How can you trust your heart to tell you
truthfully that it's time to gently let go when it
argues otherwise with your logic. I pray that
our Charlie will just slip quietly away in his
sleep sometime soon and spare us the deci-
sion we'll otherwise have to make. He sleeps
the sleep of the worn and weary these days.
The sound of a bag of potato chips used to
wake him and bring him running. Now I can
stand beside his bed and call to him and a soft
snore is quite often his only reply.
He always enjoyed going on long walks,
especially at the beach. Now it's all he can do
to walk two houses down and back with me
before he's panting and limping and wanting
to lie down in the road and rest.
It won't be long now. Every cell in my brain'
tells me so, even though my heart replies liar,
liar, liar. Perhaps one day soon, I'll kneel on
the beach and bury my face in the neck fur of
a handsome, honey-colored dog with a black
muzzle and sob out my loss, too.


Apology ff W r% fr f ji

In a recent News-Leader article
(Aug. 13) concerning the appoint-
ment of Clinch Kavanaugh to the
Historic District'Council, I am quot-
ed as saying, in an e-mail to the
mayor, that Mr. Kavanaugh had
"sued the city on occasion." That
was my memory regarding a spe-
cific situation that came before the
HDC, but in this case, my memory
was wrong. I apologize to Mr.
Kavanaugh for relying on my poor
memory in this specific situation.

A letter (Aug. 18) from (Muriel)
Creamer implied that consulting
costs were for Speech and Language
Therapy and Occupational and
Physical Therapy. If you include
Speech, Language, Occupation and
Physical Therapy in the total expens-
es for the year, nearly $500,000 is
spent for consulting services. These
professional service costs were omit-
ted from calculation of the $218,000
consulting cost figure cited, as they
are integral and unavoidable costs to
the district.
If there, were greater trans-
parency in our school district, then
taxpayers could verify this informa-
tion for themselves. Sunshine
Review, the standard for govern-
ment transparency, issued a "D"
grade for the Nassau County School
Board due to the lack of informa-
tion available on their website. If
taxpayers have access to what the
School Board spends their money
on, then we will have greater par-
ticipation and verification from citi-
zens. The Florida CFO has opened'
Florida's checkbook for public
inspection so taxpayers may see
how their money is used. We should
do the same on the local level.

Do the math
Kudos to Superintendent John
Ruis and the teachers and students
of Nassau for doing a great job, pass-
ing the FCAT and getting an "A"
grade from the state for a second
straight year. This is a super accom-
But lets not dwell on the FCAT
too much. That is a basic skills test.
The SAT scores for Nassau and
FBHS, for. example, are pretty good.
The SAT is perhaps the best bench-
mark we have around to compare
schools' college-bound student per-
formance within the state and else-
where around the country
About half ofthe seniors at FBHS
took the SAT and the average score
was. 1511 for the three tests that
comprise the SAT. Stanton College
Prep, the star high school in
Jacksonville, had 291 students (91
percent of seniors) take the test and
they scored an impressive average
score of 1831. But this is a school
that draws the best students from
the entire population of Duval
County. If we were to cull the top 10
percent test scores from all of
Nassau's High Schools I am sure
they would do as well or better than
Stanton. So the Stanton model is not
really a valid model.
I do not think Jacksonville can
touch Nassau in its average educa-
tional product, so we should not
look at Stanton. I suggest we look
north to the high tech ring road that
encircles Boston and to the smallish
town of Lexington, and Lexington
High School, a public school that is
about 25 percent bigger than
Stanton. It had 430 students (94 per-
cent of seniors) take the SAT and
the average test score for all 430
students was 1882.
OK, so the median family income
there is about $110,000, which is
about 70 percent more family
income on average than Fernandina
Beach. But wait, it costs 70 percent


more to live in L.exington, so hypo-
thetically, if two breadwinners from
Fernandina Beach were to get iden-
tical jobs in the Lexington area, for
example, a couple of health care
workers, that family would make
about $110,000 in Lexington.
So what can we learn about
SLexington? Lexington spends a
whopping $14,469 per student, or
about 12.9 percent of their family
income, and for that investment 42
percent of the grads from LHSgo on
to receive graduate/advanced col-
lege degrees, and an additional 27
percent get a four-year college
degree. So 69 percent of LHS grads
not only go to college but receive
What percentage of its house-
hold income does Nassau spend?
About 11.6 percent, or $7,609. And
this number, while probably com-
petitive with other rural counties in
the area, will not be sufficient to
continue to attract and retain out-
standing teachers, of which it is clear
Nassau currently has.
I have written to the News-Leader
before about the need for Nassau to
develop "significant separation" edu-
cationally from other counties in the
state as the most proven method of
attracting knowledge-based indus-
try. Attracting knowledge-based
industry is the best hope that fami-
lies here have to send their kids to
college and hope they return to
Nassau to live, work and raise their
own families.

Education for all
Re "Equal Access" (Aug. 13).
My husband and I attended week
6 at Chautauqua Institute in
Chautauqua, N.Y. The topic for the
week was "Excellence in Public
Education." The presentations were
equally fascinating and annoying.
All the statistics show that, in the
past 30 years, the United States has
fallen from being number 1 in the
world in public education to some-
where in the middle of the pack or
lower, depending upon the statistic
at hand. Although the speakers
offered varied solutions, none dis-
puted the statistics.
And none disputed the huge gap
between the education provided to
the privileged and the less privi-
leged. Our nation's founders
believed that- a high-quality public
education is a requirement for a
robust and functioning democracy.
To quote one speaker at the con-
ference, "Diversity has been our
(U.S.) strength, so let's rise to the
challenge. We always have.
Education is bringing out the full-
ness of each human being" (leffrey
R. Beard).
In summary, allowing any among
us to go uneducated, for whatever

reason, is to diminish the strength
of the whole. The cost of maintain-
ing an uneducated population is far
greater than the cost of providing a
21st century education for all.
Let's not let our strengths ebb

Good laugh
I had to have a good clown laugh
when I read the story in the July 21
News- Leader about the fate of the
historic downtown boat ramp. I also
got a laugh upon reading that the
city commissioners agreed 4 to 1 to
give $110,000 to Zev Cohen to find
a different spot for the downtown
boat ramp and that (cityWaterfront
Partnership Committee Chair) Lynn
Williams was not even there for this.
I quote Williams, 'The best place
really seems to be underneath the
Shave Bridge." Well, that's great.
Second, any boater knows that
the water current at the Down
Under ramp is fast and the ramp is
really narrow. Even if you are an
experienced boater, it is almost
impossible to launch your boat
there. Yeah, it's great that we would
have 500 parking spaces, but what
good are they if the ramp won't be
used. Furthermore, it's more of
show me the money! Williams says
the state might give us a grant. Well
then, screw the boaters, get the
Speaking of money,.the com-
mission would be wasting $110,000
to find out what they already know.
The historical boat ramp doesn't fit
in with the new renovations of the
downtown waterfront park. Screw
the local boaters, the charter boats,
the Greyfield Inn's barge and any
visitors that want to launch a boat
there. It's nice to see an active boat
ramp with the Greyfield barge
unloading and watching other peo-
ple load and unload their boats.
I say use the $110,000 to fix the
historic ramp and tell Lynn Williams
to launch his boat at the Down
Under. Ignore him and the com-
mission and keep the ramp.

Population policy
Illegal immigration is in the news
again! Arizona's new immigration
law is under siege. I agree whole-
heartedly with any attempts to reel
in illegal immigration but this is not
the issue.
Population growth is destroying
the quality of life for everyone. More
cars, houses, crowds, pollution and
fewer quiet places are all a result of
Excessive immigration. We will soon
be vying with China or India for the
world's most populous nation. This
is one contest we don't want to win!

The mantra of "growth" has to be
stopped. Mayor Peyton of Jackson-
ville often talks about growth and
bringing more jobs to the area. Steve
Nicklas often also lauds more
growth. We have well funded com-
mittees looking to attract business-
es to the area for more jobs and
more growth. But it's not more jobs
we need. It's better jobs we need.
We can see all around us the
penalty we pay for growth. How
many of us have gone back to where
we grew up to revisit the familiar
places of memory only to find them
gone. Houses we lived in torn down
for a new service station, mall or
block of flats. Quiet streets are now
four-lane roads. Small local schools
are now huge monsters with thou-
sands of students.
Our population growth comes
entirely from immigration. One mil-
lion legal immigrants plus several
thousand illegals plus all these new
residents' offspring are what's caus-
ing our population to grow, year
after year. American citizens' birth
rate is at the replacement level or
slightly below it. Without immigra-
tion our population would stabilize in
a few years at about 300 million.
With current levels of immigration
our population is forecasted to reach
450 million in 40 years! That's a 50
percent jump! Is that what you want?
Immigration is an emotional sub-
ject for many people. Cliches like
"We are a nation of immigrants"
cloud the issue. We are not a nation
of immigrants. We were in earlier
times but most of us are second,
third or even earlier generation
Americans today.
A population policy for America
removes emotion from the discus-
sion. Many countries have such a
policy. This policy sets forth the
range of desired population levels
we wish to have for the foreseeable
future. With this policy set, accept-
able immigration levels become sim-
ple mathematics. The domestic
birth and death rates are well
known. So the allowable immigra-
tion rates are a byproduct of domes-
tic population changes versus the
desired population levels.
What Will this do to growth? In
simple terms, halt it. In specific
terms, i.e., health, education, envi-
ronment, etc: there is plenty of room
for growth. And this growth will be
in better jobs, not more jobs, which
will benefit everyone without the
negative of more people. This will
not stop all immigration. It is esti-
mated that we could take 200,000
immigrants a year and not increase
our population.
We must choose representatives
who see a sensible immigration pol-
icy is the will of the people. Our
quality of life and that of our children
and grandchildren is at stake.

Cousins venture to Big Apple for week of fun

bus for sightseeing and
a cruise on the ferry to
Ellis Island and even
S an afternoon Broadway
4'7 ^i show and an exciting
evening at a Jai Lai
S club.
Their VIP appear-
ance at the taping of
the Wendy Williams
NOW AND show was the highlight
THEN of their trip.
.... Their trip was a
belated birthday gift to
Maybelle Raven from her Aunt
Kirkland Kathryn, grandmother
Rose and Mema
Maple. When asked
what was her impression of their experi-
ence, Raven replied, "Before I left
Jacksonville, the scenes of New York
City were just pictures, but now they are
scenes of places that I have seen while
visiting there. What a time. I mean a

Trust in the Lord with all thine
heart and lean not unto thine

Traust in the Lord with all thined
own understanding. In all thy
ways, acknowledge Him, and
He shall direct thy path for we can do all
things through Him.
Summer time. Is it over yet? I believe
I'd like it to last a little while longer.
When you're having fun, time seems to
go a bit faster.
That's what happened to Raven
1n II ..f Jacksonville and her cousin
Shareatha Smith of Darien, Ga. They
recently spent a long weekend exploring
the Big Apple.
Their midtown Manhattan hotel was
the ideal spot for them to see the city at
their leisure and be able to walk all over
town in all directions. This was the first
visit to New York for these cousins and
they learn how to become masters at
cramming all they could into a few days.
When they grew tired of walking
around town, they took a guided tour

Labor of love restores chapel into arts center


What began as a logistical
puzzle involving the third floor
location of the music room at St.
Michael Academy and the reed
for a distinct middle school sec-
tion led to the renovation of the
small chapel in the school, built
in 1882.
The space had a temporary
wall that divided the room, flo-
rescent lights on the walls and
a storage area covering the altar
area. The choir loft was also
being used for storage.
"As we reviewed our philos-
ophy regarding.the fine arts,
we realized this space would
be ideal for more than just
music classes. We recognize
that music, art, religion and his-
tory have been intertwined and
have shaped culture through-
out the centuries. This is the
heritage we want our students
to experience at St. Michael,"
said principal Deborah
"We decided to expand the
renovation of the small chapel

to be more than just a music
room, but rather to be a fine
arts center where our children
could participate in classes that
include art, Suzuki violin,
drums, ballroom dancing,
piano, guitar, drama and culi-
nary arts."
Instructors committed to the
Children's Conservatory of
Fine Arts program include Les
DeMerle, Felix Solis, Abigail
Poirier, Brett Eversole, artist
Mary Gorham and chef Yvette
Alvarez Anseeuw, all working
with the director, Katie Rewa.
Classes begin Monday and stu-
dents are encouraged to sign
up by mailing katie@ccfin-
earts.com, calling 728-8676 or
visiting ccfinearts.com.
"The room has turned out
to be spectacular. The renova-
tion was done with great.
respect for the historical quali-
ties of the room, which include
original stained glass windows
and a marble altar. The marble
of the altar was taken from the
same quarry as the marble for
Michelangelo's Pieta," said

The ornately carved
Ferrand organ found dur-
ing the renovation of the
St. Michael Chapel will
soon be on display at the
Amelia Island Museum of

The date inscribed on the
altar is 1884. The marble was
donated by Leonilla Villalonga
who lived in an apartment
above the convent for many
years. He is buried in the
Fernandez Reserve located
between the school and St.

Michael Catholic Church.
The crucifix at the front of
the chapel was in dire need of
repair. Thanks to artist Candace
Fasano, it was restored to its
original beauty and colors and
has once again taken its rightful
place above the altar.
An intricately carved
Ferrand pump organ was found
in the storage area next to the
altar. The organ dates to some-
where between 1887 to 1897. It
will be moved to the Amelia
Island Museum of History to
be on display from the academy.
Contractor Brent Rewa had
the welcome assistance of many
volunteers from the community
and as soon as school ended for
the year in May, the work began
and was finished Aug. 1.
The 40- by 21-foot space
seats 75 comfortably. Flexibility
of function includes benches on
sliders that can be positioned
according to the activities taking
place in the space.
For additional information

of Fine Arts visit ccfinearts.com.

case winds
its way up to
the choir loft
in the newly
renovated St.
Chapel, now
of Fine Arts.

Air layering or cane cut-

Be sure your pruning
instruments are clean and
sterile before starting the
project. Use a 70 percent
solution of isopropyl (alco-
hol) to wipe pruners before
and in between cuts. Make
the cuttings about six inches
long, then remove all but two
or three of the leaves.
Cuttings may be dipped in
root hormone before being
placed in moistened sand,
vermiculite and/or perlite
media. Consider covering the
plants with clear plastic to
reduce the amount of mois-
ture lost as the roots are
being formed.
Place the cuttings in a
brightly lit area but away
fiom direct sunlight. It may
take about 6-9 weeks for
roots to form. Once the roots
have developed you may put
the new plants in pots.

taller than "Delmar" and
therefore it should be mowed

"Seville" is not as cold tol-

our last few winters it might
not be the best choice here
except along the coastal

Exercise still a good idea despite arthritic knee

Q. I am 67 years old and have
mild to moderate osteoar-
thritis in my knee. However, I am
very interested in maintaining
optimal aerobic fitness. What is
the best aerobic exercise for me?
What should I avoid?

A It is good to hear that,
despite your arthritis, you
are continuing to want to be
active. While I would need good
quality X-rays to determine the
exact severity of your arthritis, in
general I can make some recom-
mendations regarding your activi-
Typically once you reach your
i60s, running becomes less of an
option, if not out of the question
for some, as impact type aerobics
may be too much for an arthritic
knee to handle. Often people with
arthritis think they cannot exer-
cise at all because it will only
make their problem worse. This
is not true. Arthritis is the lead-
ing cause of disability among eld-


early adults, but
there are cer-
tainly forms of
exercise you
can do that will
help keep not
only your bones
and muscles
strong but may
actually be of
benefit to the
remaining carti-
lage coating on
the ends of your
Walking is an
excellent form
of aerobic exer-
cise, but may

not be something you want to try
on a daily basis. Biking is another
good option and this could be
alternated clay to day with your
walking. Group exercise, such as
water aerobics or doubles tennis,
is another possibility. Swimming
and weight training are also good

Certainly you may experience
some soreness with your activi-
ties, but this should not be some-
thing that hangs around more
than a (lay or so. If it does, then
you are doing too much.
It is a commonly held notion
that exercise will lead to the
development of arthritis, but
many believe this to be false. In a
study published in the journal
Arthritis & Rheumatism,
researchers used highly sensitive
MRI studies and showed "compo-
sitional changes in adult joint car-
tilage as a result of increased
Swedish researcher Dr. I'eif
Dahlberg suggests human carti-
lage may respond to exercise in a
way that is similar to muscle and
bone and may have important
implications for osteoarthritis of
the knee.
Research studies have also
shown that exercise can actually
reduce some joint pain.
Furthermore, exercise has the

added benefit of reducing joint
stiffness, improving balance and
increasing flexibility. Also, those
who are active tend to live longer
than those who are inactive. If
you are not currently in any form
of exercise program, start slowly
and progressively, working on
stretching and flexibility. Again,
activities such as water aerobics,
swimming, yoga and biking are
relatively low intensity exercises
that are easier on the joints.

cuss issues regarding sports, medi-

LAST GAME: The Jaguars struggled early
against the Eagles but scored 27 points in the
second and third cluarters to take a 27-19 lead
into the final period. But the Eagles scored
nine points to securing the victory. Backup QB

record 244 yards and three touchdowns with
scoring plays to WR Troy Williamson for 73
yards and WR Tiquan Underwood for 55
yards. McCown entered the game with 5:43
remaining in the first half and the Jaguars trail-
ing 9-0 and led the club to 17 points on three
possessions to take the lead at halftime.
RADIO/TV: The game will be broadcast
regionally on CBS and locally on WTEV
CBS47. Games are broadcast on Jaguars

Small boaters should target inlets, beaches, havens

Saltwater fishermen
will have plenty of
fishing options this
weekend'with light
and variable winds blowing
from the west-southwest from
5-10 knots. Thunderstorms
should stay clear until the
afternoon hours, allowing
small boaters to target fishy

fish schools with live baits.
"How do I tell if there are
game fish working a particu-

do I wait before navigating to

frequently been asked.

The program is excellent for the begin-
ning boater, who needs to understand the
fundamentals of boating, and the ex~kri-
enced boater, who may be in need ofla
refresher. The basics of boat handling, wea-
ther, navigation, electronics, use of radios
and rules of the waterways are somceof the
subjects that will be covered. This class sat-
isfies state boater education requirements
for Georgia and Florida. Effective in 2010,

An Open Letter to
All Nassau County Voters

Next Tuesday's election (August 24th) will be a pivotal point in Nassau County's polit-
ical scene. You the voters, regardless of party affiliation, will have the opportunity
to choose between two entirely different candidates for the District 2 County
Commission Seat.
For the last four years, I have worked with my colleagues to try to un-do the dam-
age that previous commissions brought to the financial status of our county. Most
impartial observers agree that the turn-around since, 2006 has been remarkable.
Consider the following results from the last five years (FY 06/07 through FY 10/11)
while the population was increasing by 10.4%:
The county budget dropped by $9.3 million (-6.3%)*
The total village rate dropped by nearly a full mill (-9.6%)*
Ad Valorem Taxes Levied dropped by $6.4 million (-11.7%)*
Per Capita Ad Valorem dropped by $165/person (-20.0%)*
Number of BOCC employees dropped by 57 positions (-15.6%)*
(*Audited financial figures from Nassau County Office of Management and Budget.)
For at least 20 years before I was elected in 2006, the financial management of our
county was headed in the wrong direction, and that was the main reason I ran for
office four years ago. During those two previous decades, taxes were increasing,
expenditures were rising, and county government was expanding. As the: above fig-
,: ures showthose dangerous trends were stopped with the election of two new com-
missioners in 2006, and three more in 2008.

If you believe (as I do) that past actions are a good predictor of future performance,
and if you don't want to see our county government return to the tax and spend cul-
ture of the 1990s and early 2000s, then you need to consider the following:
When my opponent decided to run for the District 2 Seat, he sent a letter to the vot-
ers naming six "Advisors" who would guide him if he was elected. These "Advisors"
were all former county commissioners who governed Nassau County during the height
of the "tax and spend days" prior to 2006. Each of these six was replaced by the
voters when taxpayers finally got tired of seeing the county heading in the wrong
financial direction. My opponent and his advisors may mean well, but their way of
running county government has been tried, and it has failed.
This coming Tuesday, August 24th, voters of all political parties will have to decide
if they want to turn the clock'back two decades, and return power to the same polit-
ical machine that raised taxes, debt, and spending. Or they can reject that culture
in favor of the turn-around that has resulted in lower taxes, lower spending, lower
debt, smaller government, and higher reserves.
This year's voting options could not be more different, or more clear. Please say "No!"
to the old politics of Nassau County, and "No!" to the old team that ran things "their
way" 20 years ago. On Tuesday, August 24th, please cast your vote to Re-Elect Mike
Boyle so that Nassau County can continue to balance budgets, reduce taxes, con-
trol spending, and increase financial stability.
Thank you for your support, your prayers, and your votes.

What are the people saying?
"Mike, you and Barry [Holloway] very bravely, when you arrived [on the Commission] said we've got to get rid of this
Albatross [the landfill], and we worked on It, and people said It can't be done. Well, you did it."
County Clerk John Crawford, Budget Workshop, May 19, 2010
"Mike, my commendation to you particularly....you did away with the [landfill] assessment. You did It! You all took a great step."
County Clerk John Crawford, Budget Workshop. May 19, 2010
"I think Mike Boyle has done a good job as a commissioner, and I think he and the other commissioners have made good
decisions in handling the county's issues. I'm not here to criticize him or question his decisions. I think he's done a good job."
Candidate Steve Kelley, Patriots' Meeting, Murray's Grille, June 5. 2010
"On behalf of the membership and Board of Directors of the AIFBY Chamber of Commerce, I would like to commend you
and your budget staff for the determination you have shown thus far In holding the line on the property tax rate. You
have diligently worked on the budget to arrive at a point where no millage increase is expected, Well done. Again,
thank you for your hard work on the budget process,"
Regna Duncan, President AIFBY Chamber of Commerce.
In a letter to Mike Boyle, June 28, 2010

Qualifications? Experience? Accomplishments?
If you believe qualifications and experience are Important In selecting your elected officials, then consider Mike Boyle's background:
I BA Degree in Political Science I Four years as Nassau County Commissioner for District 2
MBA Degree in Management i Chairman of Nassau County Commission
Managing Director for international accounting firm KPMG i Vice Chairman of Nassau County Commission
I Adjunct University Instructor in Management Science I Chairman of the Value Adjustment Board .
Special Agent for the FBI for 27 years directing Chairman of Amelia Island Tourist Development Council
business fraud cases I NEFLIN Library Champion Award for 2009
I Six years as an elected city official
And even with these accomplishments, Mike Boyle sought additional professional training.
Since being elected as your District 2 County Commissioner In 2006, he spent two years taking courses to become one of only
two Nassau County Commissioners to ever earn the Advanced Commissioner Certification from the Florida Association of Counties.
He did this so he could better serve you, the taxpayers.

Who do you believe is better qualified to continue the
positive changes that have occurred in Nassau County
the last four years? The answer is clear.

Swit's talents shine in new comedy

Two-time Emmy winner
Loretta Swit comes to the
Jacksonville stage in
"Amorous Crossing," a new
comedy now playing at the
Alhambra Dinner Theatre,
12000 Beach Blvd.,
Written by prolific screen-
writer and playwright Mark
Miller -writer of the movies
"A Walk in the Clouds" and
"Savannah Smiles" -
"Amorous Crossing" held its
world premiere at the
Alhambra Aug. 11. Sharp
writing and sharp perform-
ances carry the comedy, a
story of chance meetings and
amorous entanglements
aboard a cruise ship bound
for the Caribbean.
Swit most famous for
her role as Margaret "Hot
Lips" Houlihan on TV's
"M*A*S*H" stars as
Madelyn, a wealthy, much-
married woman now
engaged to Dexter (Robert
Cook), a younger man who
once scratched out a living as
a soap opera actor and some-
time writer. Madelyn and
Dexter are headed to the
Virgin Islands to be married

- but Madelyn, after repeated
visits to the altar, is skittish
and considers the cruise a
"trial run" honeymoon.
In a nearby cabin, wealthy
Neil (Walter Hook) is honey-
mooning with his much
younger bride, former
actress Diana. Neil is a five-
time loser when it comes to
marriage, and harbors wor-
ries that the fetching and
feisty Diana may have mar-

Atkins) run into each other
on the foredeck and the audi-
ence discovers that the 'two
share a secret past a past
the opportunistic Dexter is
all too eager to resume.
The cast of "Amorous
Crossing" is uniformly good,
but the standouts are Swit

and Atkins.
Atkins has a tough role,
but she plays it to the hilt and
the gamble pays off. Diana is
a complex character con-
cerned with material comfort
and security but by no means
a gold-digger, susceptible to
temptation but fully cog-
nizant of and tortured by -
the pain she causes others.
It's a role that, written and
played just a bit differently,
wouldn't be out of place in a
Tennessee Williams depress-
a-thon. But Atkins, guided by
Miller's fast-paced dialogue,
makes this very human, very
flawed character a very
funny character as well.
Swit, of course, honed her
timing and delivery on one of
the funniest shows in televi-
sion history, and custom has
not staled her infinite comic
variety. Madelyn could easily
have been a pathetic figure -
a wealthy older woman
whose loneliness blinds her
to.the opportunism of a
young fortune-hunter. In
Swit's hands, she becomes
something more acerbic,
self-aware, crushed by cir-
cumstances but by no means
defeated. It's a superb comic

JAZZ Continued from 1B
music in Amelia Park on Oct. 3,
will showcase Orion, the U.S.
Navy Big Band Southeast. Two
new events will be introduced
this year: Oct. 5, Jazz At The
Movies, an evening of jazz on
film that will include videos of,
among others, Ramsey Lewis
and Count Basie, at the Harbor
Front Hampton Inn & Suites,
. and Oct. 6, Red White & Blues,
a combination blues concert
and wine tasting at the Crab
Trap Restaurant with Memphis
guitar legend Calvin Newborn
and singer "Ma" Rider. A now
traditional Latin night, with the
10-piece salsa band, Impacto
Latino, will take place Oct. 7 at
Sheffield's at the Palace.
Pre- and post-headliner
shows at the St. Peter's
Episcopal Church Courtyard/
Jazz Cafe on Oct. 8 will feature
Amelia Island Jazz Scholarship
winner Nathan Skinner and
Miami Vibe pianist Mike
Levine, respectively. The Oct. 9
pre-headliner concert at St.
Peter's will present trum-
peter/vocalist Bobby Pickwood
and a post-headliner show will
bring back last year's, Midnight
Blue Band and a "Battle Of The
Saxes" Super Jam. The festival
will rap up Oct. 10 with its New
Orleans-style Dixieland brunch
and The Spare Rib Six at the
Beech Street Grill.
The weeklong festival will
also include jazz awareness pro-
grams in Nassau County
schools and senior centers,
. added DeMerle, whose own
performances have been draw-
ing strong notices of late.
Indeed, after catching a
recent show, Vic DiGenti,
music author and former pro-
ducer of the Jacksonville Jazz
Festival, said, "If there's any-
thing the talented duo of Les
DeMerle and Bonnie Eisele
know more about than jazz, it's
how to put on a great show.
After years of touring, appear-
ing in jazz festivals and con-
certs with the likes of Lionel
Hampton, and Manhattan Tran-
sfer, they've put their talents to
work building a successful.
annual jazz festival for the peo-
ple of Northeast Florida."
Tickets are available at the
UPS Store, 1417 Sadler Road,
277-0820, or the AIFBY
Chamber of Commerce, 261-
3248. Or visit www.ameliais-

SWIT Continuedfrom 1B
performance that makes the
most out of every pause,
every glance, every line. At
one point in the play, Swit
gets a huge laugh while off-
stage, without delivering a sin-
gle line, just'by the way she
knocks on a door.
The performances en-
hance an already hysterical
script. Miller's plotting and
dialogue is reminiscent of the
screwball comedies of the '30s
and '40s; when a much-talked-
about character makes an
entrance late in the proceed-
ings, one almost expects him
to be played by Cary Grant.
Miller's choice of such an
old-fashioned style to tell such
a modern story should be jar-
ring. Instead, it lets the lan-
guage of the play take on a life
of its own, with barbs and
witty one-liners coming so fast
the show almost demands
repeat viewing -just so you
can hear the jokes drowned
out by your own laughter the
first time around.
