Jacksonville attorney Michael

The injunction alleges that three

The Nassau County School Board

health care proposal Tuesday night in
the wake of criticism from citizens and
i,, ;,, o fi m te '- i,,,nrd'. attorney
about possible legal entanglements.
The board was considering a con-
tract with CareHere, LIZC, a Tennessee-
based health care provider, to open a
clinic on school property in Yulee that
would cater to insured employees,
dependents and retirees, who would
get free care at the clinic.
Superintendent John Ruis had main-
tained that contracting with CareHere
could save the school system money in
the long run.
However, some citizens were up in
arms about the clinic's upfront costs-
about $800,000 per year and the lack

City dishes up heartburn to restaurant owners

"City staff determined recently

that about 40 rIestaurants in town have

1i,-. I,. I impact fees owed the
city for the extra seats amounted to
nearly $800,000.
That's because each additional
restaurant seat beyond the official
state count requires a one-time iml)act
lee payment of $534, said City
Manager Michael Czymbor. And
because the city has seldom or never

inspected restaurants for additional
seating, those fees have risen over the
years in some cases to the tens of
thousands of dollars.
"The impact fees are intended (to)
ensure that the development bears a
proportionate share of the cost to
accommodate such development,"
Czymbor wrote in an email.

According to a city chart, The Surf
restaurant on South Fletcher Avenue
owed the largest amount about
$93,000- for 174 additional seats that
were never reported. Sliders Seaside
Grill, with 108 additional seats, owed
nearly $56,000 and the Fernandina

Despite learning the out-

has unanswered questions.
"I thought the video was

sense," Bodden said.
Ray Bodden, 39, was shot

Cole yelled "Drop it! Drop

from behind his back holding a

and Cole shot him twice once

However, FHSAA member-

the injunction circumvented
FHSAA rules.
"Filing an injunction in court
on behalf of one school versus

Polansky said even if Yulee

Episcopal High School has
distanced itself from the injunc-

for inclusion in the playoff
bracket is Monday.
Polansky said in rare cir-
cumstances, FHSAA could con-
vene an emergency appeals
committee, but that is not like-
ly in this case.
"The emergency appeals
committee involves a confer-
ence call with a quorum of
board members," he said. "It
happens only if a state compe-
tition is involved and if the tim-
ing is such that due process
through normal avenues is not
feasible. So far, there is noth-
ing (to warrant such action)."
"From FHSAA's end, we
know what's going on, but
everything is status quo 'in
regard to Yulee High School
and the playoffs," he said.
YHS Athletic Director
Donna Jackson could not be
reached for comment.

If he sees somebody doing
something, he doesn't have law-
ful authority to tell him not to do
it, but it's not against the law to

"Something needs to be
done with the Nassau County

training tactics are not right.
Their ride-along program needs
to be readjusted because those

Melissa Bodden said the
family would pursue a civil case.
"My brother was mur-
dered," she said. "He showed
nothing but the utmost respect
for that man. He was smiling,

At Tuesday's school board
meeting, Ruis acknowledged
that many questions about the
cost of the clinic remained
"There's been a lot of dis-
cussion. We've heard from the
public extensively on this
issue," he said. "There has not
been sufficient time up to this
point to gather all the infor-
mation to answer all these
questions as thoroughly as I
would like to."
School. board attorney
Leonard Hackett recom-
mended that the board reject
the contract to avoid unspeci-
fied legal complications.
"A number of legal issues
have developed that clearly
require additional research
and additional investigation,"
Hackett said. "If any.of these
legal issues prove to be valid,
any contract between the
board and CareHere would be
void. So my legal advice at fhis
time would be not to approve
the contract."
Fernandina Bgach resident
Michele Kling questioned the
transparency and legality of
the board's decision to even
consider a contract with
"I initiated an investigation
with the State .Attorney's
Office in regards to Sunshine
Law violations," she said. Kling
said she felt that the process
by which the board's insur-
ance committee selected the
CareHere proposal wasn't
transparent enough.
"I've paid for a lot of public
records. ... I have yet to get
any correct information or
detailed information," she said.
"I urge you to table this and
put it before the taxpayers.
"If you want to throw
money away, give your teach-
ers a raise," Kling added.

"From what I understand, they
are paid below the scale of

County resident Hal
Whitley worried that accept-
ing the proposal could open
the school board to legal lia-
bility in malpractice suits.
"CareHere, as a limited lia-
bility corporation, will only be
on the hook for $250,000 in
the event of a lawsuit. You all
will be on the hook for any
lawsuits beyond that," he said.
Whitley also blasted the
teachers' union.
"Please do not be duped by
union officials pushing a
socialist agenda straight out
of Washington, D.C.," he said.
"I'm asking you to be morally
correct, not politically correct."
"Ijust found out about this
today, and I'm shocked and
appalled at what I'm hearing -
first, that this is an out-of-state
company," said Julie Strasser
of Fernandina Beach. "I see
signs all over 'Buy Nassau,'
'Support Nassau'- and you're
giving money to a company
from Tennessee?
"I think it's a horrible idea.
You've got so many people
here telling you it's a horrible
idea. Stop before it's too late."
The board unanimously
rejected the proposal. Ruis told
the audience he would con-
tinue searching for ways to
lower health care costs and
that the school system would
communicate more effective-
ly with citizens in the future.
"Apparently, listening to all
the comments we've had over
the last four meetings, we did-
n't do a very good job inform-
ing anybody of anything," he
said. "That will improve. I
promise you all that the next
time we'll be putting a lot of
information out there and
make a compelling case."

10-month look at new vehicle sales

Through October in the U.S., there have
been 9,572,083 new vehicles sold, an increase
of 11 percent over 2009. That has 2010 track-
ing to be close to 11.5 million sold. While not
overwhelming, itis progress.
Truck sales (pickups, vans, SUVs and
crossovers) have increased 16.7 percent,
while cars have increased 5.3 percent. Cars
still hold a slight 4.8 million to 4.7 million
edge in sales, but trucks are gaining their
momentum back with more stable fuel prices
for now.
Domestics have picked up 490,610 units

The Nassau County
Commission will break ground
Monday on the William
Burgess Boulevard extension
project. The ceremony will
mark the start of construction
on the project, which will extend
William Burgess from Harts
Road to US 17 in Yulee.
The project has been on the
county's books for a long time,
said Commissioner Barry
"It's been on the books since
I've been there," he said
Thursday. "... It was a way to
bring good-paying jobs to the
county and still will be."
Holloway said the original
hope behind the extension was
to attract warehouse space and
the jobs that would come with
that. However, he said, the
slowed economy has probably
put that on hold.
"Originally it was done to
help open up the industrial
development off of Harts Road.
Of course with the economy in
the situation it's in, that indus-
trial development has slowed
down a bit," he said. "When the
economy picks up, hopefully
that industrial development will
pick up."
However, he said the exten-
sion would still serve a purpose,
easing the load on the already
overcrowded A1A.
"It'll relieve some of the traf-
fic congestion through that
intersection (at A1A and US
17)," he said.
Holloway reiterated that he
believes the extension will have
future economic benefits as
well. "We were just trying to be
proactive and look into the
future for the county," he said.

City Utilities Depai

The Utilities Dl)epartment is
proud to display our new
plant improvements which
consist of a 2.5 MGD) treat-
ment train, head work modification,
chlorine contact tanks, third
digester and 3mm influent bar
screen. The new additions were con-
structed with significant savings due
to the in-house efforts to design,
build and operate these new facili-
ties. The total cost for these
improvements was $3.5 million,
which is about one sixth of the cost
that a neighboring city paid to have
a contractor complete their plant.
The wastewater facility is currently
treating 1.7 million gallons per day
and with the new treatment train we
have the capacity to treat up to 5 mil-
lion gallons per day. Our capacity for
future growth has been increased by
1.5 MGD or the equivalent of 5,000
homes. Based on our present flow,
with a 3 percent growth factor we
should not need any new treatment
facilities until 2030.

The city is focused on becoming
more environmentally friendly, and
in doing so have added a solar site to
the wastewater plant. This solar site
encompasses 20 200-watt suntech
solar cells producing a total of four
kilowatts/hour. The mounting sys-
tem for the solar panels was
designed and installed by the city,
which cut costs dramatically. The
panels are connected to one another
and then hooked up to the AC/DC
grid-tie inverter. A grid-tie inverter
takes the energy produced by the
solar panels and sells it directly back
to the power company. The total
project cost was $15,000, which is
less than half the amount it would
have cost through a private contrac-
tor. The solar site will produce a
maximum of 40 KWH/day, and save
$1,400 per year. Life expectancy of
the system is projected at 20 years
with a break even in the 11th year.

Coping with post-election trauma

F finally, all the mud...
slinging, dirt daubing
and backstabbing has
come to a stop. Each
election, I keep thinking these
endless TV ad assaults can't
get any worse, but they
always do. If you ever kicked
an old dog when you were a
kid, it will come out if you run
for office. I always have to
replace the mute button on
my remote after each elec-
tion. Have you noticed how

the weather has cooled down
since all the hot air has
stopped spewing into the
atmosphere? The even num-
bered years are always hotter
than the odd numbered ones.
Take notice, Al Gore.
I keep hearing that one of
the local candidates had no
business experience and
changed his mind among all
the hot air.

someone votes Democrat just

did. I was a registered

would suggest they reread
paragraph six of a mediation
agreement dated April 16,
2007 and recorded in OR

see if it has been legally exe-
cuted. It may have vanished

adjacent roads. As so often
happens, the people that have
lived and driven on these
roads for 70-80 years know
nothing that has transpired,
but the people that weren't
born yet know every little

Tea Party's

We have purposely waited until
after the elections to take you up
on an offer of space for the Tea
Party to make a statement. The
main purpose for waiting is that we, as the
Nassau Patriots, did not want to add to confu-
sion or get "lost in the shuffle" during the
highly charged political atmosphere.
In spite of what appears to have been
a concerted effort to malign and misrep-
resent this dedicated group of informed and
investigative citizens (using, at best, circum-
stantial evidence) we stand on our mission

political and government meetings to hear, see
and determine where our local, state and
national leaders are taking us. This is our
country and we are responsible to not only
elect but also to follow up on the actions of
those elected. We take this matter seriously
because we believe, as citizens, our job is not
finished at the election booth.
"We are a non-partisan, non-profit, grass-
roots group of patriotic citizens who are loyal

The local Nassau Patriots Tea Party has
aligned with the Tea Party Network in order to
have a greater voice and a more united front in
our efforts to restore this nation. There are
nearly 30 groups so far from Orlando to the
Florida/Georgia line who act in concert; for
example, the St Augustine rally on Sept. 18
and the recent Get out to Vote Parade and rally
this past Inonth were huge events. Tea Party
networks are springing up across the nation
and yet there is no tea "party" per se and nei-
ther is there a tea party "leader." This move-
ment is unprecedented and non-centralized
and it is an honor to be counted among such
American Patriots with the passion and zeal to
see the cornerstones of our Constitution
Thank you, again, for the opportunity to
represent ourselves in the local news.

Library in Central Park
The year was 1979.
Plans :,"' new library captivat-
ed th~' F-rinds of the Library and
others who loved the written word.
But problems rose as quickly as
the federal grant was announced.
Where to put it?
Meetings were held at City Hall
with Friends members, myself
included, pleading to the city com-
mission, mayor and city manager
that this new library be built on our
city lot on Atlantic Avenue, which, at
the time, held that old, leaky log
cabin, home of the American Legion.
That left only two problems. Two
lawyers, Hymie Fishler, now
deceased, wanted to sell his lot
behind what was then Allan's
Department Store (the library's
present site) and Buddy Jacobs, who
wanted the library in front of his
historic home on Alachua and
Fourth to enhance its property val-
Hymie and Buddy won out, and
the library was built where it now
Fast-forward 31 years.
That American Legion cabin,
except for its lone, tall still-standing
chimney, is no more, leaving a spa-
cious city lot, surrounded by trees,
sitting at the edge of our lovely city
park-the center of sports activities
such as tennis, baseball, basketball,
movies at night, concerts by the
prestigious Jacksonville Symphony,
picnics, political meetings, birthday
parties and fairs.
To get a glimpse of what could be
'for Fernandina Beach, one need
only take a drive over to the
Avondale Riverside preservation
area of Jacksonville. There, facing
Park Street, at the edge of pictur-
esque Boone Park, stands a stately
two-story building called Willow ':
Branch Library.
Willow Branch houses up-to-date
technology, thousands of books and,
most beautiful of all, an upstairs,
glassed-in and spacious reading
room, overlooking sprawling, tree-
laden Boone Park.
Indeed, our library, built on
Atlantic Avenue, the heart of
Fernandina Beach, would be a true
landmark in our beautiful city.
Most important, our library
would provide lots of nearby and
convenient parking spaces.
It all seems made to order!
God's timing is perfect. Maybe
not in 1979.
But why not now? In 2010?
Something to think about seri-

Space shuttle
I stepped out of the Palace Saloon
last summer to see if there would be
any sign of the space shuttle from
Centre Street. "Look there it is!" An
impossible thing, human beings
were streaking across the sky. My

, 'F "

species, my countrymen, virtuosos,
were approaching impossible
speeds, performing impossibly'com-
plex tasks in impossibly extreme
conditions. Yet there they were!
Rising; rising, rising and bringing
me right along with them. We were
I can't see the good in shutting
down the shuttle program instead of
improving and extending it. It feels
like retreat. With the ending of
manned space flight, man is dimin-
ished: Ulysses will never "Push off,
and sitting well in order, smite the
sounding furrows" again. We are
moving backwards. The United
States is withdrawing from the van-
guard. This titan of human achieve-
ment made a big noise once, and
we all caught a glimpse of great-
ness. But budgets are budgets, and
the cold hands of impartial intellect
will no longer allow such silliness.
Of course we are advancing on
different fronts. We will shoot
arrows into the sky hoping to extend
our perceptions with blinking light
emitting diodes and silently switch-
ing microprocessors ones and
zeroes, black and white. It will be fas-
cinating, but will it be inspiring? And
will our machines appreciate the
beauty of the view?
Humans are curious things. We
are motivated by death, the univer-
sal tragedy, to leave something of
ourselves behind. It is death that
enables our accomplishments and
nobility. The span of our lives is
miniscule, yet we struggle, as.
soloists, to contribute something of
value to the music of the symphony.
We teach our children to be proud
and to strive; "individual achieve-
ment is good."
.Of course, the welfare of the
whole outweighs the welfare of the
individual, and glory is a selfish moti-
vation. What is the value of the indi-
vidual musician compared to that
of the entire symphony? Yet, isn't it
the greatness of the individual musi-
cians that makes the greatness of
the symphony? Are the parts less
valuable than the whole? Can man
achieve with the burden of the
whole weighing him down? How
can we spend billions on the space
shuttle when Haitians are struggling
with cholera and New Orleans is
still dilapidated?
Do we really need the space shut-
tie? Yes, because individual achieve-
ment brings us all hope and inspi-
ration. Do we still need "man" in
space? Yes, because without the pos-
sibility going, why would we care?
We still need our individual heroes
to lift us up and show us.what
humans can achieve. We still need
leaders to inspire us and to show
us where we might one day go. We
still need astronauts to take us into
outer space and show us the heights

of intellectual achievement I want
my grandchildren to step outside
one day and be lifted into impossible
places. I want them to feel the pride
of being a Floridian, a citizen of the
United States and a member of the
human race.
Let's improve it and extend our-
selves instead of retreating from our
greatness. Let us be "strong in will,

There is a great ministry going
on in our town and some people still
don't know about it, so I feel it is
my job to get the word out. Tlie
Angel Food Ministry Food Co-op
has been going strong at the Church
of Christ on the corner of 14th Street
and Jasmine for some time now. I
will share with you what my expe-
riences have been:
The food you receive is good
quality and well worth the trip, when
I have gotten the boxes we use
everything we get, some things
right away.
The people at the church are
friendly, helpful and truly are a bless-
ing to our community.
Even if you pay full price (which
usually runs $31 for the monthly
food box) you would spend more
than that for a week's worth of gro-
ceries at the store for a family of
four, I don't care how many coupons
you use, how thrifty you are, I just
don't think it is possible (from my
own personal experience).
Apparently a benefactor has
donated money to be used to help
with the food costs until the money
runs out, so if you go by the church
and pay in person for the monthly
food box, it is now $16 (was $31),
and the monthly fruit and veggie
box is now $18 (was $23). Oh, and
the $41 box with 10 entrees is now
$26. You just can't beat the price!
They also accept food stamps; I
think most people don't know that.
Whether your family struggles to
put food on the table or not, this is
a great opportunity for our com-
munity to receive the blessings that
God has so graciously provided
through this ministry. Please keep in
mind this is a food co-op, anyone,
regardless of their circumstances,
income, etc., can come and receive
this blessing.
I suggest if you need more infor-
mation to contact Mr. Tom at the
Church of Christ at 261-9760, he will
be able to answer all your questions
and advise you of the pick-up dates,
etc. Everyone, come and receive a

Support deputies,
Our tax dollars are well spent in
support of two services in this com-
munity: both the sheriff's and fire
department. Initially Deputy Jeremy
Hyers responded to my call for help
and after evaluating the situation he
contacted the fire department. Lt.
Curtis,Bollinger and Engineer David
Lee from Station 70 responded.
Our situation was unusual.
Although our carbon dioxide alarm
is hard-wired a battery outage ini-
tially caused a very loud beeping
sound which finally changed to an
audio message of "Warning -
Carbon .Monoxide Carbon
Monoxide" and shifted to "Fire -
Fire." Deputy Hyers took charge of
the situation and told us to evacuate
the building and then proceeded to
contact the fire station. He assured
us they would have the monitoring
equipment for carbon monoxide and
they would be the individuals to eval-
uate the situation.
Lt. Bollinger and Engineer Lee
arrived promptly. They used a scan-
ning device to detect the presence of
any carbon monoxide. They found
none and declared our home safe.
These individuals who have
made a commitment to put their
lives on the line for the citizens in
this community should be com-
mended for their work ethic. All
three of these individuals calmed
our fears and were patient enough to
explain to us "why" the alarms were
triggered. Our family will be forev-
er grateful for their help on Nov. 2.
This is a.public thank you to all
three individuals. Please continue
to support both our sheriff's depart-
ment and our local fire department
in our community. Both of these
services are vital and necessary!

In February we adopted an older
mixed breed dog, Fenway, from
Animal Care and Control in Yulee.
We recently took him to visit for the
Hall-O-Ween Pawty dressed up as a
construction worker on Oct. 30. We
were thoroughly impressed with the
staff and volunteers. They did a won-
derful job setting up all the
Halloween decorations and organ-
izing all the events. A good time was
had by all that attended. We com-
mend all the hard work they put
into the Pawty. We also want to
thank all the local businesses, spon-
sors and volunteer's that made it all
possible. Without all the hard work,
it couldn't have been possible.

and occasion came from Richard S.
Cook III, a graduate of Peck High
School and author of the Peck High
School song.

Freedom Writers, Tuskegee Air Force,
Jacksonville drum scene and doing
something on Old Town in February.
Roland Knight, chaplain of the
Barnabas Center, has been in this coun-
ty eight years. People don't have much
at all. If you are elderly, lost your job,
need repairs or anything, call him. They
will do what they can to keepy6u safe.
Roberta Healey, chairperson of the
city of Fernandina Beach Peck
Committee, was also very glad to be
there. She gave an update on the Peck
Committee.There are 13 members and
their biggest accomplishment is the
dedication of the Peck building.
They have dedicated two benches in
memory of Eli Colborn. When Colborn
died, a lot of money was donated in her
honor, so a scholarship for high school
students has been given and donations
have been made to Elm Street Little
-League. They all are a good group of
people. I hope we can keep the building
looking good.

The Rev. GodfreyTaylor blessed the
food and dinner was catered by Ervin
and Allean D. Gilyard of Dee's Catering.
Introduction of the speaker came
from President Charles L. Albert Jr. He
told us about a young man born in
Hilliard and graduated from Pine Forest
High School in 1968. He spent four
years in the U.S. Air Force and graduat-
ed from Florida Community College at
Jacksonville with a bachelor's degree in
education. He worked in the Nassau
County school system for 35 years and
retired from West Nassau High School
in April. The first black athletic director
in Nassau County, he is the pastor of St.
James Baptist Church in Sandhill. He is
married with four children and Ernie
Albert was his first grade teacher
The speaker, the Rev. Johnnie Green,
pastor and retired educator, shared with
an audience of more than 75 guests. "It
takes a village to raise a child and the
village should be mom, pop, aunts,
uncles, cousins and neighbors. The par-
ents are the ones to prepare our chil-
dren for this challenging vorld," he

"Parents support their children in
sports, but we need to stop putting so
much effort into sports and support
them in academics. I went to school to
play basketball and eat lunch. After high
school hurt me because I didn't prepare
myself. These are the things we need to
do to help our children. Make sure you
are aware of your student's progress,
attend school functions, not only sports.
Schedule conferences, talk to our chil-
dren, ask them what can I do to help
you. This will motivate our children to
do better in school. Wisdom is a house
built and, by understanding, it is estab-
lished This house could be your educa-
tion. Have a plan and stick with it.
"Inquire about scholarships, stay off
the phone, stop texting. Wise men lay
up knowledge, but the mouth of the fool-
ish is near destruction. It is good to
have conversation with a wise person.
To the young, pull up your pants. You
can be anything you want to be. Just
work hard toward it. You have to have
something to motivate you. Apply your-
self in the classroom.
'The dreams you have right now, let
no one take them from you. Every
dream begins with the dreamer. By
knowledge shall the chambers be filled
with all precious and pleasant riches. To
God be the glory for us being here
Jacqueline Arthur, vice president,
thanked everyone for coming and sup-
porting the scholarship fund. The bene-
diction was given by the Rev. Jeremiah
Robinson Jr.
The families of the late Manuel Perry
Jr. and Ernestine Coakl6y wish to thank
all who have shown concerns to them
during their hours of bereavement. May
God bless each of you.

FRIDAY. November 12.2010/News-Leader


Framing houses, framing words, framing your future

I'll never forget the day he
showed up. I was young mid 20s -
and building houses for a local con-
tractor. As the owner of the compa-
ny, the rest of the crew and I sat on
the sawdust covered floor eating our
lunch, the sound of our guest com-
ing up the stairs filled the house that
we were building.
"Hello," he called out in a loud
voice as he walkedaround wonder-
ing if anyone was there.
"Hello," my boss replied. "We're
in here." And with that, around the
corner he came. Middle-aged, weath-
ered skin, work boots, blue jeans and
a bit of an attitude you could tell he
was no stranger to a construction
"How's it going?" he said in a con-

fident voice. "Is the
boss around?"
'That's me," my
boss replied. "What
S can I do for you?"
"I'm looking for
work," the man
S said. "Do you need
any help?"
"Not at the
PULPIT moment," my boss
NOTES said, "but if you
want to leave your
number, I'll be glad
Pastor to call you if some-
Rob Goyette thing comes up."
"OK," the man
replied. "You won't regret it. There's
nothing I can't do. Do you mind if I
look around?" he continued.

"Go ahead," my boss said. "Have
at it."
As we ate lunch and the man
looked around, every now and then
we could hear him talking to himself.
Finally, he came back to the room
where we were.
"Who did all the rough frarhing
around here?" he said.
"We did," my boss replied.
"Well, I can sure do better work
than this," he said. His words caught
us all off guard. My boss's quick
answer was just as unexpected.
"Oh well," my boss said. "All I
know is that we are working and you
are not." As you might imagine, that
was the end of the conversation. So
many years later, and with many
changes in my life, those words, and

what led up to them, have never left
me. From where I sit now, here's the
scripture that comes to mind.
"He that is despised, and has a
servant, is better than he that honors
himself, and lacks bread." (Proverbs
I have found that people that
boast in themselves and are critical
of others never stay anywhere very
long. Sure, they may be skilled and
have some legitimate talents, but
God never seems to be able to bless
them long-term. The reason; they
boast in themselves and despise oth-
ers. The fiuit of this behavior is
never good. Those who do such
things tend to go from place to place,
from church to church, from job to
job, looking for acceptance and a

place to fit in, but by their attitude,
disqualify themselves before they
ever really get plugged in. For me,
here's the bottom line. When we are
proud, we tend to be critical of oth-
ers. Those two things pride and a
critical spirit always set us up to be
resisted by God, for God resists the
proud but gives grace to the humble
(1 Peter 5:5).
Heaven knows that I know what
I'm talking about Over the years,
I've fallen into.this trap a bunch.
Thankfully, I'm learning to police my
heart and frame my words with a lot
of grace. In the end, it builds a much
nicer place to work and to live.

four interceptions. Second-year CB Derek

Rashean Mathis and DT Terrance Knighton
each had one. The Jaguars dominated,
gaining 387 total yards and scoring five
touchdowns. The defense turned in a goal

lead of the season, after the Cowboys had a
first-and-goal at the nine-yard line.

News Leader

Katie Mitchell, 17, was offered full rides to
play golf at at Rollins College and Jacksonville
University, but she opted to accept a partial
scholarship from the University of Central
Florida in Orlando, a division one program.
"When I went on an official visit a couple of
weekends ago, I hung out with the girls and met
the coaches," said Mitchell, a senior at Fernan-
dina Beach High School. "I loved them and we
bonded. We prayed about it and decided that's
where I should go."
She's following the path of her high school
coach, Christina Steffen, who also played golf on
scholarship at a Division I school.
"It's been a few years, especially for Division
I," Steffen said. "We've had some division three
and NAIA."
Mitchell, a native of Fernandina Beach, and
her family left Tennessee this year to return to
the island and Steffen couldn't have been more
pleased. Steffen's also the boys golf coach and
Mitchell's younger brother, sophomore Tripp,
also made an Impact on the Pirate golf team.
"She's a hard worker," Steffen- said. "She
deserves it. She has great commitment to the
game and dedication to the game. I look for-
ward to seeing her go to the next level and even
beyond that."
Mitchell started playing golf at an early age.
"Since I was little, but I didn't start getting
serious until I was in fifth grade," she said.
Mitchell made her fourth trip to state this
year, this time in Florida. She boasted a 12-1
match record as a senior and led the Lady Pirates
to the district championship and a third-place fin-
ish in the region. She was the district medalist,
took second in the region and was the lone state
qualifier for FBHS. She tied for 25th in the state
with scores of 73 and 79.
In Tennessee, she was the county champion
three years running. She was unbeaten her fresh-
man and sophomore years, earning all-region
and all-slate honors. As a junior, she tied for

Fernandina Beach High School senior Katie Mitchell signed Wednesday with the
University of Central Florida, where she will play golf on a partial scholarship. She is

Principal Jane Arnold, her parents Dede and Mitch Mitchell and her brother Tripp, a
sophomore on the FBI IS boys golf team.

eighth in a bigger classification. Over the sum-
mer, she captured three titles in major junior
events and was the medalist in two more.
"She is an outstanding student and one of
the most focused, personable young women I've
ever met," FBHS Principal Jane Arnold said.
"We are pleased we had her here, even if it was
only for a year."
While the Lady Pirates bid farewell to

Mitchell, her new coach is excited.
"We are thrilled to have Katie join the UCF
women's golf team," said Courtney Trimble,
head coach at UICE "We look forward to Katie
being a key part of our program next year. She
is an outstanding golfer, but more importantly,
an outstanding individual. We look for her to
have an immediate impact both on and off the
golf course."


Fernandina Beach,

Yulee kick off

seasons Thursday

Basketball season tips off next week and the
Pirates and Hornets are playing in a preseason
tournament at Ponte Vedra.
Yulee will hit the court under first-year head
coach Jonathan Ball, who coached the last two
seasons at Yulee Middle School. Yulee faces
Ponte Vedra Wednesday at 6 p.m. and takes on
Episcopal on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The regular
season kicks off Nov. 30 at home with Raines.
"We start off the season with four big district
games in a row," Ball said. "We're going to be
tested right away this season."
Yulee is in District 3-3A, which includes
FBHS, Bolles, Episcopal, Raines and Ribault.
The Yulee Hornets return John Hall, Derrick
Peterson, Kelvin Rainey, Kasey Westfall and
Steven Mason from last year's squad.
"We're really excited about Travis Greenaway,
Ball said. "He's a point guard that didn't play this
past season. He is exciting to watch with a bas-
ketball. Darius Calhoun is a track star that we've
converted to a basketball player. He never runs
out of energy and is electric on defense.
"Nolan Carlyle is a converted baseball play-
er that is great in the paint. He's got an excellent
attitude and will be a big help this season. Garlin
Wilson is a junior with ups and will be a big con-
tributor the next couple of years."
The FBHS Pirates, who went 25-4 and cap-
tured the district crown before falling to Ribault
in the region semifinals, have just one player
returning with significant playing time last sea-
son, senior Sean Jowers (6-foot-6). Also return-
ing are seniors Will Rodeffer, Andrew Slechta
and Alex Bridwell.
Senior Matt Guest (6-foot-6) transferred from
Faith Christian Academy and sophomore David
Booker relocated from Pierce County, Ga.
Moving up from the junior varsity are Jordan
Mcintosh, Logan Vendola, Dartaine Dunwood
and Darius Tillman.
"For our fans, it's going to be a bunch of new
faces on the floor," said Matt Schreiber, head
coach at FBHS. "I think they look forward to hav-
ing their opportunity."
The Pirates take on Mandarin High School
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Ponte Vedra High
School. On Friday the Pirates face host Ponte
Vedra. Tip-off is also at 7:30 p.m.

Ring in the season with A Ceremony of Carols

For the News Leader
B benjamin Britten and Conrad

Such divergent musical
styles couldn't possible fit
together! But they do and the Island
Chamber Singers will present "A
Ceremony of Carols" on Friday, Nov.
19 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 21 at 3
p.m. There will be a reception follow-
ing the Friday night performance.
The concert features Christmas
music of English composer
Benjamin Britten (1913-76) and
American Conrad Susa (b. 1935).
Both performances will be held at
the Amelia Plantation Chapel, 36
Bowman Road on the Omni Amelia
Island Plantation. .
Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28, is to
many singers the "ultimate"
Christmas piece. It was written while

were traveling from the United
States to England in 1942. They were

About ptanque

Petanque originated in Provence in the early
1900s as a simpliied version of an older outdoor bowling
game The aim is to toss or roll a number of hollow
metal balls bouleses") as close as possible to a small wooden
target ball Players take turns and the team that ends up
nearest io the target ball when all balls are played, wins No
special skill is required, seniors can play with children. Ihe
equipment is inexpensive. The game is simple relaxing, fun
and a perfect way to make new friends Over the past 20
years its popularity has grown worldwide, with national
leagues in 88 countries Aher the 2009 Open, the city of
Fernandina Beach left seven courts at the south end of the
downtown marina for anyone to use A club evolved, which
now boasts more than 42 members They play Wednesdays
at 6 p.m and Saturdays at 9.30 a m Everyone is

"A year ago, hardly anyone
on the island had ever heard
of petanque. Now 10 local
teams are training and eager
to compete against the visi-
tors. That's exactly what I was
hoping for when I first saw
the downtown waterfront:
boats, breeze, sunshine and a
huge open area. The only
thing missing were folks play-

and then another first in the
following two years.
For several years she
accepted commissions for art-
work and specialized in
equine portraits and wildlife
developing her painting tech-
nique of acrylic wash on mat.
By 1990, she was living in the
Central Coast Region of
California and began compet-
ing internationally with her
wildlife portraits. This
brought offers for commis-
sions from across Europe and
the U.S., but also "mass chaos
and total confusion. My living
room was buried under piles
of photos, sketches and yellow
sticky notes. I didn't see the
carpet or walls for' months.
The interior decorating style
could have been described as
'modern tornado with a touch
of bohemian and a dash of tur-
pentine.'"To maintain the
quality of her work, she
turned down all but a handful
of commissions and withdrew
from competition.
It was soon thereafter she
allowed her personal interest
in myriad mythologies to
enter her artwork and began
working in dry media chalk,
charcoal, and colored pencil.
Currently located in the
Jacksonville area, Sorum
looks forward to sharing the
creations inspired by her new
location and the people she

Continued from 1B
Christ is set "in freezing win-
ter night" and the "Deo
Gracias" driving and intense.
Britten employs a variety of
means to set his poetry. In
"This Little Babe" he creates
a martial atmosphere, most
unusual for a song about a
baby. Its unison beginning is
aggressive and each of the
next two verses are canonic.
The fourth is declamatory
and the presentation is homo-
phonic and strong. It ends
with the lyrics, "if Christ can
foil your foes with joy, stay
near the heavenly boy."
Soloists for Ceremony of
Carols are Deborah Watford,
mezzo soprano, and Jane
Powell, lyric soprano. Their
duet of the "Spring Carol" is
light and dance-like. Each of
the movements has a particu-
lar theological bent and is
representative of the
medieval idea of the
Christmas story.
The second half of the
program will feature Carols
and Lullabies: Christmas in
the Southwest by American
composer Conrad Susa (b.
1935). He is a native of
Pennsylvania and received
his Bachelor of Fine Arts
from the Carnegie Institute
of Technology. Following this
he attended the Juilliard
School of Music where he
studied with Vincent
Persichetti, William Bergsma
and believe it or not, PDQ
Bach. Out of that experience
he must have developed a
wonderful sense of humor.
He worked as staff pianist for
Sthe Pittsburgh Symphony
and was an assistant editor
with Musical America maga-
zine. More recently he is
chair of composition and
music history and literature
at the San Francisco
Conservatory of Music (a
man after my own heart).

Four or five years
ago, Philip Brunelle
suggested I write
him a companion to
Britten'sA Ceremony
of Carols. To a com-
poser this was
another way of ask-
ing How's about
writing us a hit?'

Christmas in the Southwest
was composed as a compan-
ion piece to Britten's A
Ceremony of Carols. He
wrote these comments in
1992, "Four or five years ago,
Philip Brunelle suggested I
write him a companion to
Britten's A Ceremony of
Carols. To a composer,khis
tempting offer was another
way of asking 'How's about
writing us a hit?' After several
years of me writhing in
doubt, a friend, Gary Holt,
showed me a collection of tra-
ditional Spanish carols he
had sung as a boy in Arizona.
Excited, I juggled them
around to form a narrative. I
noted their many connec-
tions with Renaissance music
along with their homey, artful
simplicity. Finally, the over-
riding image of a South-west-
ern pinata party for the new
baby led me to add guitar
and marimba to Britten's
harp and to compose connec-
tive music and totally re-con-
ceive the carols."
You are probably asking
how in the world this work
by Britten could possibly be a
"companion piece" for the
traditional carols. There are
several characteristics of
both works that bear compar-
ison. First of all, in each the
first and last pieces are the

copy of Cooking with the Inns
ofAmelia Island cookbook
and a certificate for a one
night midweek stay at one of
the inns in the association.
Only five VIP packages per
inn are available. One of the
five VIP packages from each
inn will also win a private car-
riage tour during their stay.
Beech Street Grill will
open for lunch especially for

same. In Britten the antiphon
is heard as processional and
recessional. In Susa, the
opening section of""O mi
Belen!" is like the closing
section of "El Rorro." Sec-
ondly, each is a narrative of
the Christmas story and the
pieces occur one. after the
other without a break.
Finally, both composers
made use of the harp in the
accompaniment,-though Susa
added the marimba and the
guitar to give his wdrk a true
Spanish flavor.
In Carols and Lullabies,
the lyrics are written in
Andalusian, Castilian,
Catalan, Biscayan, Puerto
Rican and Mexican Spanish
And can all be sung in their
