Post office bu

at a standstill

News Leader
Negotiations with the U.S. Postal
Service to acquire the Centre Street
post office building are at a standstill
for the time being, according to Vice
Mayor Tim Poynter, who gave com-
missioners a progress report on the
discussions Tuesday.
Poynter, who was tasked with nego-
tiating with the USPS on the possible
acquisition of the building, said he
recently met with rla ..i l;. ital\ -sin a
closed cex-ecutiit session in which it
was made clear that a deal was far
from being struck.
Poynter, who would not give any
details, nevertheless conceded the
city's, desires regarding the building
"were different from what the post
office wanted."
"They never give buildings away,"
Poynter said.
A non-binding letter of intent from
the U.S. Postal Service to the city in
April 2009, approved by then-com-
missioners, stated the city would pur-
chase the property at no cost and lease
back 4,000 square feet to the U.S.
Postal Service, including docking

space, for a 100-year
term at a cost of one
dollar. The city was
to also pay for
improvements to the
space as well as the
costs for a tempo-
rary. post office
space during con-
Poynter struction.
The letter was
Slater revised, with
the square footage for the U.S. Postal
Service deleted, but there were no
additional specifics added to the letter
of intent. According to Poynter, the
current commission rescinded the let-
ter of intent but continues negotia-
lPoynter told commissioners the
postal service had lost $8 billion last
year, and that about 6,000 post office
buildings around the country are in
similar predicaments as the Centre
Street facility.
"Quite honestly, we're not hanker-
ing for this building," Poynter said,
"but we have to take responsibility for
the building as a community. ... The

Greenway tree fix

still controversial

S.Representatives of the 1 lurida
Department of Transportation brought
city commissioners up to date Tuesday
on a tree restoration project for Egans
Creek Greenway.
SBut it was clear some residents are
still suspicious of FDOT's ability to
restore the plant life that was killed
by a 2003 botched mitigation project.
The wetlands south of Jasmine
Street, part of Egans Creek Greenway,
were affected in 2003 by a misman-
aged FDOT mitigation project that
allowed saltwater to infiltrate the fresh-
water habitat. More than 50 acres of
maple trees and other flora died as a
FDOT admitted culpability and
agreed to restore the area to a fresh-
water habitat. The St. Johns River
Water'Management District issued a
permit for FDOT to construct a tide
barrier in April 2008 adjacent to
Jasmine Street, and it was constructed
in early 2009.
But many of the dead trees remain
standing, clearly visible on the south
side of Jasmine Street.
Jim Knight of FDOT told commis-
sioners there are two areas, called

Compartment 1 and Compartment 2,
where the FDOT plans to restore the
habiatt Compartment 1 is partly visi-
--blr'i nim Jasmine Street and is a more
accessible area where the plan is to
plant 30-60 trees per acre. Standing
dead trees are to be felled and left in
place, and appropriate tree species
would be planted in selected areas.
Compartment 2, which Knight said
is very difficult to access, would not
receive any new trees at this time, but
will continue to be monitored for salin-
ity, and the dead trees could be cut
and dropped where they are standing.
In both areas, FDOT would continue
to monitor existing plant growth and
reestablishment of native freshwater
Commissioner Eric Childers said at
the meeting he had met with a citizen
who has expertise in habitat restora-
tion, and had some concerns about
tree density in the restoration project.
Childers said that, at 60 trees per
acre, it would mean one tree planted
every 27 feet, and with 30 trees it
would mean one tree every 54 feet.
For real restoration, Childers said,
there should be a tree every 15-25 feet,
and at least 25 percent should be

New cityfire chief

brings experience

New Fernandina Beach Fire Chief Chuck Bogle, left, poses with a shift of city firefighters wearing
pinkishirts instead of their normal daily work attire during October to promote Breast Cancer
Awareness Month.

News Leader
Fire Chief Chuck Bogle may be new
to Fernandina Beach, but he's no
stranger to public service. With more
than 25 years of fire rescue experience,
the 48-year-old veteran presented an
ideal candidate to City Manager
Michael Czymbor. 9
"I selected Chief Bogle as the city's
next fire chief because he possesses a
solid educational background in all
aspects of fire administration, emer-
gency medical and rescue services,
and emergency management,"
Czymbor wrote in a Friday e-mail. "...
The chief also served as the director of
(Titusville's) community development
department, which shows his initiative
and h; 1t i. Ir technical abilities, which
we can hopefully utilize in Fernandina
Beach. 1 was also impressed by his
strategic planning abilities and his 'can
do' attitude."

ATitusville native, Bogle had been
that city's fire chief since 2007 and prior
to that held a variety of other posts,
including fire marshal. Sworn in here at
an Oct. 4 city coi mi --iiii :in-_Ii lii.., he
fills a void left after Dan Hanes vacated
his post in June.
The city manager said he consid-
ered a field of 49 applicants for the posi-
tion. A panel appointed by Czymbor
interviewed six of the top candidates
and provided him with a report of its
evaluations, he said.
"I personally interviewed three of
the six and I selected Chief Bogle,"
added Czymbor.
Fernandina, Bogle said, was atop a
wish list of destinations in which he
had wanted to work and live.
"I had Fernandina Beach in my
mindsiic- thi- late 90s, early 2000s," he
said. "I had just seen some informa-
tion about it or whatnot and I thought,

Spices and herbs can give a
boost of flavor to any meal,
but they also have health ben-
efits. With increasing interest
in "functional food." herbs
and spices have been receiv-
ing greater attention for their
potential to decrease inflam-

Basil can give a fresh fla-
vor to any pizza or pesto, but
this spice is more than just a
seasoning. Basil has anti-
inflammatory properties,
which can help prevent
swelling and alleviate pain
caused by arthritis. It also
contains the flavonoidsori-

Red and Chili Pepper
An increase in body tem-
perature or heart rate upon
ingestion of a pepper is
believed to increase metabo-
lism. Red peppers contain
capsaicin, which accelerates
energy expenditure and
increases lipid oxidation.
Studies also suggest that con-
suming capsaicin decreases
fat intake. Chili peppers can
fight inflammation and help
relieve pain.
Ginger provides gastroin-
testinal and nausea relief.
Recent studies also suggest
that ginger may play a role in
preventing inflammation,
which could be useful in alle-

role in cancer prevention with
its antioxidant properties. Its

Safety tips for

older drivers

CREED Executive Director

Driving helps older adults
stay mobile and independent,
but the risk of being injured
or killed in a motor vehicle
crash increases with age. In
2008, more than 5,500 older
adults were killed in motor
vehicle crashes and more -
than 183,000 were injured.
This amounts to 15 older
adults killed and 500 injured
in crashes on average every
Motor vehicle crash
deaths per mile traveled
among both men and women
begin to increase markedly
after age 75. Age-related
declines in vision and cogni-
tive functioning (ability to
reason and remember), as
well as physical changes
(such as arthritis or reduced
strength), may affect some
older adults' driving abilities.
Still, driving plays an
important role in many older
adults' mobility and inde-
pendence. If you are a driver
age 65 or older, you can
make your time behind the
wheel safer by:
Asking your doctor or
pharmacist to review your
medicines (both prescription
and over-the counter) to
reduce possible side effects
and drug interactions.
Having your eyes
checked by an eye doctor at
least once a year.
Wearing your glasses
and contact lenses as

ing distance behind the car in

The Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue Department, com-
mitted to ensuring the community is SHARP Stroke,
Heart, Aware, Risks, Prevention ready invites everyone
to a free Community Health Awareness night at 6 p.m.
Monday at City Hall, 204 Ash St.
Topics will include stroke awareness signs and symp-
toms, heart attack signs and symptoms, modifiable and
non-modifiable risk factors, roles and responsibilities of the
community, deployment and activation of successful
CPR/AED programs, success stories and more. There will
be prizes and giveaways. For information contact the fire

That would be a neat place."'
He said the department's
medical transport operations
and its ocean rescue compo-
nent, aspects missing from
Titusville's fire rescue services,
attracted him to the post.
Another selling point was the
department's smaller size.
"Two to four stations is
what I was looking for," Bogle
said. "I didn't want to go to a
one-station department
because it's too easy for those
to get gobbled up by a larger
entity because of these tough
economic times."
Even so, he admitted that a
proposed consolidation of
Nassau County and city fire
rescue services gave him
"One of the things that real-
ly concerned me is this whole
discussion that they had about
the county taking the city's (fire
rescue services) over and all
that," said Bogle. Still, he
added, the mutual aid agree-
ment between the two depart-
ments is integral to providing
the best service possible.
Adamant that he will not
shake things up or "reinvent
the wheel," Bogle said he pre-
ferred-to lead by example.
"I think you're going to get
a lot more by trying to work
cooperatively with people
rather than coming in here and
going, 'By golly, I'm the fire
chief and you're going to do
what I shy whether you like it
or not," he said. "You're not
going to go very far with that
attitude. There are some peo-
ple who subscribe to that, but
I'm not one of them."
Bogle heaped praise on the
department for its excellence in
community involvement, but
said one of his chief priorities
is bolstering existing efforts.
"One of the things I've seen
and I've heard is that our guys
are very muchin tune with the
community," he said.

Legislative Delegat
The Nassau County
Legislative Delegation orga-
.nizational meeting, general
legislative hearing and public
forum will be 5:30 p.m.

He also aims to familiarize
everyone with local emergency
management procedures and
fire prevention education.
"A busy department helps
justify itself, but a slower
department can helpjustify
itself by not having any (emer-
gencies) because they're out
there doing things proactive-
ly so people don't get hurt and
fires don't occur," he said.
"Quicker responses lead to bet-
ter outcomes."
Paramount to the chief's
responsibilities, said Bogle, is
ensuring the taxpayers get the
most value for their dollars.
"Professionally and per-
sonally, I like to call myself f'u-
gal," he said. "Some people call
me cheap, but I think when
you're dealing with other peo-
ple's money you need to be
prudent and you need to be
Emphasizing the rescue
aspect of the department,
Bogle said all of its units are
equipped with Advanced Life
Support, or ALS, equipment
and personnel.
"We actually have people
that work for this department
that can go out and drill into
your bones and start IVs," he
said. "... If you call us at 2
o'clock in the morning we're
going to show up with all this
equipment, with all this knowl-
edge, with all these supplies in
order to try to remedy what-
ever issue you're having."
Because of his extensive
tenure with the city of,
Titusville, Bogle was able to
enroll in the Deferred
Retirement Option Program,
or DROP, through which he
receives retirement benefits at
almost 75 percent of his
$96,000 Titusville salary. He
can draw those benefits- he is
eligible to receive them for up
to five years, according to
Bogle in addition to his

canopy trees. He also noted
trees typically have only 60 per-
cent survival rates.
"I would expect that our sur-
vival rate would not be as good
as a typical survival rate,"
Knight said. "We're really trying
to put trees out there and see
what thrives."
Childers countered that
species in a maritime forest are
well adapted to survive some
salt content and wind damage,
and that those types of trees
were missing from the FDOTs
restoration plan. Tree species
chosen by FDOT for planting
include Eastern red cedar,
sweet bay, red mulberry, wax
myrtle, slash pine, blackgum,
may hawthorn, yaupon holly
and others.
Knight said a biologist had
studied the area aQd the trees
chosen were the most likely
species to surviv( adding that,
before the saltwater intrusion
the area was a monoforest with
little diversity.
Childers also asked about
whether the FDOT plan had
considered the problem ofinva-
sive species, and whether the
plan gave native species a
chance to inhabit the area.
Knight conceded monitoring of
the area addressed both those
"This is a process that could
go on for decades," Knight said.
"We are committed to freshwa-
ter restoration."
But resident Tom Cote-
Merow was suspicious of the
FDOT plan, saying he was
"absolutely aghast with the lack-
luster vagueness.and unbeliev-
able disinterest by the FDOT"
for the damage done to Egans
"You'd better have a better



plan, it better be more detailed
... we better stop being forgot-
ten," Cote-Merow said vehe-
mently. "I want to see an email
every month from you guys,
showing what's going on."
Resident John Car; who has
been involved with monitoring
the Greenway for years, said
the FDOTplan was "not a com-
plete fix."
"This is lets try some things
and see," Carr said. He con-
ceded, however; that some
freshwater plants were being
reestablished in the damaged
area of the Greenway.
"This is the same as when
they stopped farming the
Greenway in 1945 and 1946,"
Carr said. "You can do too much
or too little. I won't be here to
see it when it's done. I'm
pleased to see it's moving for-
ward. The support of the com-
mission is vital, and anything
we can do to help these guys do
the right thing."
"Are people willing to wait
for natural recruitment of trees
for 30 years?" resident Julie
Ferreira asked. "It doesn't seem
to me a good method of restora-
tion. There are plants that can
handle salinity and wet feet ...
this requires commitment by
the FDOT and your part."
"In the past, the commission
talked about leaving a legacy,"
said resident Jan Cote-Merow.
"The Greenway is a wonderful

biggest resolution I continue
to tell (postal service re'pre-
sentatives) is, just fix the
building." He added that
acquiring the building was a
"moving target" now because
the post office has been going
through so many transitions.
Poynter said he had asked
representatives if they would
be willing to shore up the
building's exterior until the
city has a chance to renovate
the interior.
"I got somewhat of a feel-
ing that they might be doing
that," Poynter said, "but they
have to have a current
appraisal." Poynter said an
appraisal was scheduled to be
done within the next few
"Typically, (when selling)
they try to get within 10 per-
cent of the appraisal value,"
Poynter said. After that, he
said, the building could go
to auction, with the city pos-
sibly having first bidding
Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch said it might be good if
another party besides the city
bought and repaired the build-
ing. "We have no authority to
make (the postal service)
maintain the building," he
"If a private buyer bought
it, could they demolish it?"
asked.Commissioner Arlene
"That's the slippery slope
you go down," Poynter said.
"We're trying to come up.with
a resolution that works for the
city.... The postal service has-
n't done the right thing, and
that's why we have this prob-
lem." He added that, as a busi-
ness, the postal service still
sees its thousands of proper-
ties as having value, and will

not easily let go of them.
The city helped sponsor
an architectural study of the
structure in March 2010.
According to that study,
urgent repairs alone would
cost around $50,000, with
deferred maintenance repairs
costing another $60,000. The
structure was also included
in a 2007 feasibility study by
Surber Barber Choate &
Hertlein that determined the
building could be adapted for
civic use after restoration.
The building was con-
structed in 1910 at a cost of
$90,000, on a former olive
orchard owned by the
Lesesnc family. Based on

Scam of the Week: automobile repairs

There are many scants ;and
fraud";s ,surroundii.li the auto
service/repair lI si n ss. 'I'o
avoid becoming a victim, com-
mson sense cerlainly helps b till
you also nieed to think
about what you need done and
plan ahead. When service or
repairs are needed on your
vehicle Seniors vs. Crime rec-
ommends you use thle following
1. 'ake your vehicle to a
shop you can trust. We have a
number of excellent small serv-
ice and relair shops in
Fernandina Beach and Yulee.
Cars are a big investment and
very important in most of our
lives so you need to lind an hon-
est, reputable shop. Use one
you can trust and don't just turn
over your car to anyone. One of
our cases involved a client that
saw a "two tires for one" sign at
a local tire store and took her
car in thinking she could save
some of her hard-earned
money. When she got the bill
for four new tires, she noticed
they had added on charges for
roadside assistance and future
alignment services, neither of
which she had requested or
needed. The total charges
turned out to be more than if
she had paid the full cost of four
2. For special problems or
major work (timing belt service,'
transmission repair, engine or
computer problems) you may
want to use the dealership
from which you bought the
vehicle. Dealers normally give
a full guarantee and it's possible
that the work/parts are war-
3. Know what work is being
done and why the work is nec-
essary. Internet research can
help you understand the prob-

lem and what parts (new or
used/rebuilt) may be needed.
You may want to order the parts
online or buy at an auto parts
store and provide it to the shop
for installation. In that way you
will save material markups. And
since you are assuming some of
the risk the installer might
include in his price, the charges
should be less.
4. Do'not sign a repair or
work order until you under-
stand exactly what needs to be
done to your vehicle. Read the
work order and then sign it
after you are clear it includes
only the work you authorized. If
your car has a warranty make
sure the shop knows this and
the repairs are approved before
the work begins. Ask the
shop to call you if there is any-
thing else they find that needs
to be done. The price, method
of payment and finance terms
need to be included on the
work order before the work
begins, otherwise you may be
overcharged and susceptible to
fraud. If you just drop off
your car in the shop's lot and
leave the keys in their office
with a request to "fix it," good
5. Know the law. The shop
has legal recourse up to the
entire value of your car if you
can't pay for the work once it
has been completed. This is
commonly referred to as a

mechanic's lien. Therefore, be
sure you are able to pay for
what you have agreed to have
done onihe work order or you
could lose your vehicle. Senior
vs. Crime had a client who
actually lost her car when she
left it at a shop and did not claim
it for an' extended period of
time. The shop obtained a
new title for her car because
of charges due them and sold

automobile repair shops as they
are like any other business. Be
assertive as to what you want

to pay but do so in a pleasant
manner. You may be surprised

I was right in the middle of a
very busy September when a
friend mailed me a particular-
ly timely and amusing piece
about things literary. The mis-
sive was also a little bit frighl-
We have all heard the doom-
sayers who are smugly proph-
esying the demise of independ-
ent booksellers, and even
(heaven forefend!) the very
books needed to stock the
shelves of these allegedly dis-
appearing Mtores. Thank good-
ness Books Plus and the Book
Loft belie that claim; our two
stores are thriving with shelves
that are fully stocked to entice a
steady stream of customers.
But even I have had to ack-
nowledge that there is a notice-
able surge of electronic devices
that some readers are substi-
tuting for an old-fashioned book.
Every time I turn around or turn
pages in a magazine, I am con-
fronted with an advertisement
for one of the confounded

the plane, the train, the bus or
even the back seat of our cars.
We can just plug in and "read" to
our hearts' content without hav-
ing to interact with the real
world around us.
I suppose that if I were to be
marooned on a distant island,
I'd like to have an extensive
library stored in my trusty
Kindle. Otherwise, it offers cold
comfort on several fronts.
Books have been lifelong
friends, and the thought of
throwing them.out for some
piece of electronic gadgetry
makes me cringe. Who else will
be entertaining every time we
meet? Who else will take me to
faraway places or let me meet
famous and important people?
You can't slip a pretty book-
mark in between the pages of an

Will decorators of the future do
the same thing to a stack of
expensive books so they can fill
an empty space on a bookshelf?
(For that matter, will we have
bookshelves? The very ques-
tion makes me shudder.)
Those of us who have ever
used a book or magazine page to
get a piece of Sonny's Real Pit

never give up the Real Thing. If
I had a Kindle, I'd have to get out

6A FRI)AY, Oc roi:i,: 21,.2011 NEWS News Leader

Proud to be an American

You can hear the pride and sincerity in their voices when they
take the Citizen's Oath to support and defend the United States
ofAmerica. You canfeel the feelings ofjoy. happiness andfreedom
as tears fill their eyes as they stand in front of the US. flag and
receive from the judge their Certificate of Citizenship.

For the News-Leader
My beautiful wife
Ximena Perez-
became a United
States citizen on Aug. 25,2011.
Not only did her naturalization
ceremony give me another
reason to be proud of her -
she is the mother of our two
handsome boys, a college
graduate and a respected
employee of local businesses -
but it also helped to reestab-
lish my own pride in being an
My wife emigrated to the
United States from Colombia.
Colombia is a beautiful coun-
try full of beautiful people and
culture. Apart from what you
think you know about that
country, it has changed
immensely in the past 10
years. It is safer than it ever
has been and is one of the
most modernized countries in
South and Central America. (I
can verify this because we
have traveled there at least
once a year for the past 10
years.) She did not leave
Colombia because it was a bad
place, or because she was in
danger. She left because I
asked her to live with me here.
Together we moved to this

community and discovered its
charm and beauty. We decided
this place was where we want-
ed to start our family and
begin our careers. We are
happy living here, and it was
because of our family, our
friends, the ocean and the life
we live here that my wife
chose to become a citizen of
this country.
Her naturalization ceremo-
ny was oddly a community
affair. First of all, the whole
process of becoming a citizen
was inspired, encouraged and
supported by an amazing
member of our community,
Jane O'shea. As a deeply root-
ed and retired member of our
small town, Mrs. O'shea was
inspirational in how her friend-
ship and patriotism encour-
aged my wife to become an
American citizen. Another
example of how the ceremony
had local community ties, a
young woman from Callahan,
Ashli Holton, sang the
National Anthem and America
the Beautiful for the newly
sworn-in citizens. She had a
strong and moving voice and it
was purely coincidental, but,
magical, that this small-town
girl was performing in the
Federal Courthouse in down-
town Jacksonville on the day
of my wife's ceremony.

The community connec-
tions do not end there. As my
wife, my family and I waited
for the ceremony to begin, one
of the judge's guards began
searching the crowd gathered
for the ceremony in hope of
finding myself and my wife.
When he found me, he intro-
duced himself as Larry Brown
and told me he was there to
congratulate my wife on her
special lay. It turned out he
was the father of one of my
students and was told by her
why I was not going to be at
school that day. It was a very
noble thing for him to take the
time to congratulate my wife
and I and another example of
how this community was
entwined in making this day
even more special.
The Citizen's Oath on this
day was taken by 48 people
from 33 countries and admin-
istered by the Honorable
Thomas E. Morris. The princi-
ple guest speaker, Michael R.
Freed, Esq., began his inspira-
tional speech by greeting all of
the new Americans in their
own native language. It was an
excellent display of-American
hospitality. The ceremony con-
tinued with a recorded video
message from our president
that reinforced the sanctity
and sincerity of the process of

becoming a citizen. It was a

It was the first time my
mother, father and I have wit-
nessed a naturalization cere-
mony. My Mom is the wife
and mother of U.S. veterans
and; because of this, one of the
most patriotic people 1 know.
The guest bedroom in her
house is "Americana" themed.
Red, white and blue every-
thing; bedspread, pillowcases
and all of the things that deco-
rate the walls are "Americana."
Even one of those famous pic-
tures of a sailor kissing a
woman on the street hangs on
the wall because it reminds
her of her Dad, who was also a
veteran. I love her and I am
proud of her patriotism. Being
the patriot she is, she helped
give the best insight on how

and why every native-born .
American should go to at least
one naturalization ceremony.
Her reasoning is when you are
at one of these ceremonies,
you get to witness, first hand,
new citizens pledging their.
allegiance to the United States.
of America.
They take this pledge
through conscious choice, not
because they were made to by
their schoolteachers. You can
hear, first hand, the pride and
sincerity in their voices when
they take the Citizen's Oath tb
support and defend the
United States of America. You
can also feel the feelings of
joy, happiness and freedorh as

was all of these experiences
during the ceremony that
changed her perspective on
how she felt about people who
were not born in the United
States. She said it made her
feel even more proud to be an
American knowing that
America was gaining citizens
who did not take the rights
outlined in the Constitution
for granted. They worked
hard for them. They had to
show up for all of the inter-
view appointments, pay all
associated fees, pass both a
written and an oral examina-
tion and meet all of the
requirements of a security
screening by the Department
of Homeland Security.
Another reason for my
Mom's already ballooning
patriotism was her pride in
how America looks past skin
color, language, religion and
any other ethnic trait not com-
mon to us, but possessed by
these people, and welcomes
thqm as citizens. My Mom
reminded me how we often
forget the freedoms we have
and how not everyone in this
world is allowed to be who
-they are. As an American citi-
zen, you can be. That is part
of the American Dream; be
who you want If it is part of
our new citizen's dream, it is
therefore now a part of our
dream, because we are all
Becoming a U.S. citizen

opinion and honorably affect
this community. Following the
naturalization ceremony, our
new citizens were given the
opportunity to register to vote
and finally have a direct path
in personally shaping
America's future. Our country'
and our community have been
continuously changed and
improved because different
people with different back-
grounds and beliefs have

rance and mistrust
I am certain there are
more, but I am only aware of
three other new American citi-
zens in our community.
Congratulations to Victorino,
Judy and Maria Elena. These
three Americans have been in
our community for awhile
now working, playing, raising
families and adding their own
special culture to that of ours.
That is what America is made
of; a mixture of forever chang-
ing ingredients blended
together to createliberty, safe-
ty and happiness. Together,
native born and naturalized,
we sincerely pledge our alle-
giance to the United States of
America and from that make
America the greatest country
in the world.

Onibehalf of the Amelia Island Jazz
Festival Board of Directors, I want to per-
sonally thank the community for its gener-
ous support of the 2011 Amelia Island Jazz
Festival. We are pleased to report that this
year's festival was a great success, with won-
derful performances in venues ranging
from Amelia Park's Town Square to Sandy
Bottoms to St. Peter's Episcopal Church to
the Beech Street Grill. Despite the iffy
weather, every show elicited enthusiastic
responses from recold-breaking crowds and
the feedback from all who attended has
been most gratifying.
There is no way we could have had a
2011 festival without the generous support
of our sponsors, led by the Amelia Island'
Convention & Visitors' Bureau and our
major lodging partner, the Omni Amelia
Island Plantation Resort. Dozens of other
sponsors. and a strong cadre of volunteers
offered invaluable help in presenting our
shows, and we are most appreciative.
Special kudos go out to the folks at St.
Peters, who really came through by offering
indoor space.when storms threatened to

Dad's puppy
On Sunday evening around 7:30
p.m. my I)ad's little puppy went
missing. We were at a birthday din-
ner on Duane Road. My Dad's


puppy got out unknowingly and we
searched until approximately 10:30
p.m. that night We did not find him,
and on Monday morning we called
the local vet, but no one had seen
him. About 10 a.m. the vet called us
and told us that the puppy had been
found along the Airplane Road area
between my sister's home on Duane
Road and between Dad's home on
Myrtice Road.
We went to the vet and the puppy
was severely hurt. The X-Rays
showed that the puppy had been
shot with a high-
powered pellet or
BB gun. The
injury was severe
and we had to
have emergency
surgery on his
back. The four
shots had severed

bone. He was unable to use his back
legs and could only pull himself
slowly on his front legs (similar to a
low crawl). After a 1 hour, 45 minute
emergency surgery in Jacksonville
the puppy still cannot use his back
legs and he is paralyzed from about
half of his back body.
This puppy weighs about 14
pounds. Animals are defenseless
and depend on humans to take care
of them. Regardless of the size,
breed, dog/cat, horses, birds, they
still have feelings.
My point is, there is some mean,
cruel, heartless person living in the
Airplane Road to the Duane Road
area of Yulee.
Anyone who would hurt and
attempt to kill an animal and shoot
and leave them forl dead has a major
personal problem.
This is the way that serial killers
are made. The person or persons
who do this kind of thing to animals
have a sick mind.
I just wanted to make an editori-
al comment about this so other ani-
mal lovers in this area will be aware
of this and watch their pets closer.
The area needs to know of sick, (dan-
gerous people living in this area.
I just wanted to publish this sadly
,but true story about an elderly
man's puppy and companion.

Take responsibility
To the mother of ("Penny wise,
pound foolish," Oct 7), I1 too was my
child's class assistant in kinder--
garten and regularly volunteer
today. But I consider that my respon-
sibility as a parent: to ensure that my

child is as prepared for life as I can
make him. It is not anyone else's
responsibility but mine. Many par-
ents now devote hours of work and
research to homeschool their chil-
dren to ensure the best possible
education for their child.
The country of Norway spends
the most per capital for education, fol-
lowed by the USA. Other countries
spend more per their GDP, but each
child in America receives more edu-
cation dollars than anyone else in
the world barring Norway. And yet
our education is considered greatly
flawed and ineffective. Could it be
that parents have abdicated their
A couple of things we all know
for sure:
1) When the money is gone, the
money is gone. America cannot con-
tinue to spend money it does not
have, no matter how worthy the
2) The government cannot be all
things to all people. It cannot feed
everyone, clothe them, provide an
individual stellar education, a fabu-
lous home, entertainment opportu-
nities, foster everyone's individual
creativity and, finally, perform par-
ents' duties.

Cityrecycling event
This is the third year for this
semi-annual event but the first time
for my participation. My wife and I
have been collecting and saving per-
sonal files for many years and stor-
ing them in our attic. We decided
that this was the year to dispose of
out dated material so we called a
shredding service in Jacksonville.
Their fee was $10 to $12 per file
box. We Went through our stash
and decided that 16 of the boxes
could be shredded.
Then we saw the banner on the
corner of Lime and Eighth plus we
read the article in the News-Leader,
both advertising the recycling
event. We called the Maintenance
Department and yes, they had a
commercial shredder and we could
watch our files being shredded. On
'Saturday we arrived at the desig-
nated area and our files were shred-
ded plus we also disposed of an old
motorcycle battery.
I would personally like to thank
the city, their employees and con-
tractors for this wonderful and free
service for city residents and, for a
small fee, county residents. We plan
to go through our storage shed and
bring more items to the next event.

Seniorsvs. Crime
I don't know if people are aware
of how helpful Seniors vs, Crime
are. I had a problem and I was at my
wit's end, trying to solve it on my
own. The company I had dealt with
just gave me the run-around. They
wouldn't return my money, so I got
in touch with Seniors vs. Crime in
Barry (one of the volunteers)
started calling the store, the man-
ager, anybody he could think of. He

Business hurdles

wonderful dinner. It wasn't easy.
Not because of the restaurant but
because of the often heard of "dif-
ficult business atmosphere of
The Casa Amelia restaurant was
supposed to open Monday, Oct. 10.
I drove by at least four times, as did
others, I'm sure. Each time I asked
about opening day. Each time I was
told of another delay caused by our
local bureaucracy. The last delay
was due to th "need" for an inspec-
tion of the television set plugs.
Now don't get me wrong; I
appreciate any person or organiza-
tion that looks out for our safety.
Yet this is a building that was pre-
viously used by Pepper's as a restau-
rant. Nothing has changed except
the d6cor. Why does Fernandina
Beach present so many difficulties
for businesses that will bring pleas-
ure and jobs to our community?

Pasta for Paws promises food, fun Saturday

For the News Leader

The seventh annual Pasta for
Paws spaghetti dinner is Saturday,
and it has grown into one of the
Nassau Humane Society's most pop-
ular fundraising events for good
reason. For just $12 you get not only
a delicious spaghetti supper, but also
an incredible selection of homemade
desserts, plus live music and a silent
Last year more than 600 dinners
were served. "It does seem like the
entire island comes to it," said Sandy
Balzer, volunteer coordinator for the
Humane Society.
"We have a wonderful group of

ladies who make the meat sauce and
marinara. These recipes are fresh
and delicious and focus on a wide
variety of tastes," Balzer says. "The
meatball recipe is from a very
famous chef's mother.
"We have a large group of women
who make the meatballs a couple of
days before the event. It takes about
100 volunteers to make it all possi-
ble, and we start work on this proj-
ect about two months prior We have
a number of chefs or former chefs
who volunteer to run the kitchen
and work with the food."
The Humane Society's volunteers
and friends also contribute home-
made desserts, and the result is an

amazing variety of sweet treats.
Additional desserts are available for
$2 each. "I do believe there just
might be a little competition going
on to see whose dessert disappears

the quickest," Balzer says.
The event will be from 4:30 to
7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center, 2500
Atlantic Ave., and will also feature

live music from Frankie's Jazz Jam,
and a big silent auction. Children 6
and younger eat free, and take-out
will be available. Tickets will be
available at the door.
"Our silent auction is one of the
best," Balzer says. "Merchants really
respond to the needs of homeless
animals, so even though times are
tight, they still like to help us out."
All proceeds will benefit the dogs
and cats at Nassau Humane Society,
671 Airport Road, as they await
adoption to their forever homes. You
can meet some of the shelter's
adoptable pets at the event Saturday,
and watch their videos as

FRIDAY, OcroillmIR 21, 2011 LEISURE Ncws Lcadcr

Jazz Festival a swinging' time, even with a nor'easter

D despite a significant threat from thun-
derstorms during its final days, the
Amelia Island Jazz Festival succeed-
ed in presenting one of its finest
musical programs yet.
Though the headliner shows were original-
ly scheduled outdoors in the courtyard at St.
Peter's Episcopal Church, the festival, like jazz
musicians, improvised and came up with suffi-
cient space inside to keep everyone dry and
"We really weren't sure how we would be
able to handle the big crowds, especially for
our Saturday show With Buckwheat Zydeco,"
said Festival Artistic Director Les DeMerle,
"but the folks at St. Peter's really came
through and allowed us to perform in both
Burns Hall and the Sanctuary. It all worked
out great, and our audiences were understand-
ing, patient and ultimately very happy."
The festival launched into high gear for its
Wednesday Blues night at Sandy Bottoms with
a pulsating performance by Toots Lorraine
And The Traffic, whose spot on versions of
West Coast Rhythm and Blues and Jazz kept
the full house boogieing into the night.
Thursday night's Latin show, featuring the tor-
rid, percussion-driven combo, Impacto Latino,
brought several highly skilled couples onto
the floor to demonstrate exquisite versions of
salsa and cha-cha-cha dancing.
Jazz Festival scholarship winners Nathan
Skinner (vibes) and John Sheard (sax) and
their group led off the Friday night festivities
at St. Peter's and played an impressive set of
modern bebop, with each tune rendering bril-
liant improvisations. They were followed by
DeMerle's Gypsy Rendezvous outfit, featuring
the superb violinist Doug Cameron and always
smooth vocalist Bonnie Eisele in a tribute to
the'pre-World War II swing music pioneered in
Paris by Django Reinhardt and Stephane

Bonnie Eisele, Les DeMerle and Doug Cameron jam at the Amelia Island Jazz
Festival, held Oct. 2-9 at venues around the island.

Grapelli. The set mirrored their latest release,
"Gypsy Rendezvous, Volume 2," on Origin
Records and presented jumping renditions of
classic swing music.
Sultry, statuesque'and gifted South Florida
singer Nicole Henry closed the evening with a
rousing performance, filled with distinctive
interpretations of standards and originals from
her latest album, "Embraceable," along with a
very personable sense of humor. Henry's use
of double entendres kept the crowd convulsed

with laughter throughout, and she exited the
stage to a standing ovation.
The nation's most popular zydeco per-
former, Buckwheat Zydeco, thrilled the
packed audiences in Burns Hall Saturday with
a pulsating program of his native Louisiana
music. Showing equal dexterity on vocals,
accordion and organ, Stanley Dural, aka
Buckwheat, maintained a high level of energy
and ventured into the overflow audience sev-
eral times to add excitement. His show was

paralleled in the Sanctuary with a stirring trib-
ute to the great organist Jimmy Smith, by a
band led by DeMerle (drums) with Scott
Giddens (organ), Barry Greene (guitar), and
Don Zentz (sax). The group truly captured
Smith's artistry with inspired arrangements
and solos that wowed the packed church from
.start to finish.
The festival closed on Sunday with its tradi-
tional Dixieland brunches at the Beech Street
Grill. The sold out shows presented great food
along with the Dynamic DeMerle's hot sextet,
the Spare Rib Six, doing notable renditions of
New Orleans classics.
The 2011 Amelia Island Jazz Festival put on
Sa wide array of programs including Be-Bop,
Dixieland, Big Band, Latin, Smooth Jazz, Jazz
At The Movies and Blues that drew fans from
across the nation for yet another successful
year. DeMerle, Eisele and others continued
their ongoing presentations in schools and
retirement communities throughout the area
as well.
DeMerle, added that, "We are quite grati-
fied with this year's turnout and especially the
support we received from the Tourist
Development Council, the Omni Amelia Island
Plantation and so many businesses throughout
the community. Additionally, dozens of dedi-
cated volunteers managed to take charge, plan
and execute all aspects of the festival, which
ultimately produced an efficient, well-run and
profitable week. We plan to keep building the
festival into an internationally recognized
event because Amelia Island is second to none
in its support of the arts."
All proceeds from the week's events benefit
the Amelia Island Jazz Festival, a not-for-profit
501(c)3 corporation, and its jazz scholarship
program. For information, contact the festival
