Downtown post office closing coming closer

News Leader
The U.S. Postal Service will hold a public meet-
ing next month to discuss possible changes in
the way postal services are provided in Fernandina
Beach. Those might include establishing a new
"Village Post Office" in a downtown uIsiness.
Books Plus at 207 Centre St.
Customers will have an opportunity to meet
with a Postal Service representative to discuss
alternatives. The public meeting is.set for 6130
p.m. Nov. 18 in the former First Baptist Church at
412 Alachua St.
"A review of business activities of the post

(iil'l'i: altI hi location revealed that the office work-
load has declined. This reduced workload sug-
gests the maintenance of an independent post
office here may no longer be warranted," accord-
ing to a press release issued Tuesday by the U.S.'
Postal Service.
As more customers choose to conduct postal
business online, on their smart phones and at
shopping destinations, the need for the USPS to
maintain its nearly 32,000 retail offices has dimin-
ished, the press release slated.
The Postal Service announced July 26 that it
would take the next step in downsizing its retail
network by conducting studies of approximately

3,700 retail offices to determine customer needs.
As part of this effort, the Postal Service also intro-
duced a retail-replacement option for affected
communities around the nation.
"Today, more than 35 percent of the Postal
Service's retail revenue comes froin expanded
access locations such as grocery stores, drug
stores, office supply stores, retail chains, self-
service kiosks, ATMs and usps.com, open 24/7,"
said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe in the
press release. "Our customers' habits have made
it clear that they no longer require a physical post

Two families involved in a fatal
crash last year on CR 121 filed law-
suits Monday against the Nassau
County Commission, claiming that an
improperly placed guardrail caused
the wreck, according to the victims'
attorney Stephen Pajcic ofJacksonville.
The wreck killed 16-year-old
Courtney Hendrix and left three others
gravely injured.
Pajcic contended that the guardrails
- located 13 inches from the edge of
the lane -violate Florida Department
of Transportation standards, which he
said mandate that such barriers be
placed five feet away from the road.
"We're really looking for compen-
sation and justice 1fom the contrac-
tors, and correction of the dangerous
condition from Nassau County," he
said Tuesday.
Filed in Duval County Circuit Court,
the two separate complaints assert that
Nassau County is at fault for authoriz-
ing the guardrails' installation.
The wrongful death complaint filed
by attorney James F Waters III on
behalf of Hendrix's estate repre-
sented by her guardian Kathryn
Beninati claimed the negligence of
the county caused or played a role in
the teen's death by "impermissibly
increasing the likelihood of a head-on
crash,involving serious bodily injury or
Complaints filed by Pajcic for Kellie
Marie Rosier, formerly Beal, and her

Halloween safety

tips for pets

Nassau CountyAnimalServices Ingesting tin foil and

Halloween can be a fes-
tive and fun time of year for
children and families, but for
family pets, it can be a stress-
ful and even dan-
gerous time of
year. Nassau
County Animal
Services offers pet
owners some com-
mon-sense tips to
help owners keep
their pets safe during this
time of year.
Don't leave your pet out
in the yard on Halloween.
Your pet may be vulnerable
to being frightened, teased,
injured or even stolen.
Keep your outdoor cats
inside several days before
and several days after
Halloween. Black cats in par-
ticular may be at risk from
children's pranks or other
cruelty-related incidents.
Trick-or-treat candies
are not for pets. Chocolate in
all forms-especially dark or
baking chocolate-can be very
dangerous for dogs and cats.
Symptoms of significant
chocolate ingestion may
include vomiting, diarrhea,
hyperactivity, increased
thirst, urination and heart
rate-and even seizures.
Candies containing the
artificial sweetener xylitol
can be poisonous to dogs.
Even small amounts of xylitol
sweetener can cause a sud-
den drop in blood sugar,
which leads to depression,
lack of coordination and
seizures. In cases'of signifi-
cantly low blood sugar, liver
failure has been known to

cellophane candy wrappers
can pose a choking hazard or
cause intestinal blockage.
Be careful of pets
around a lit pumpkin. Pets

may knock it over
and cause a fire..
Curious kittens espe-
cially run the risk of
getting burned.
Don't dress
your pet in a cos-
tume unless you



know he/she loves it. If you
do dress up your pet, make
sure the costume isn't annoy-
ing or unsafe. It should not
constrict movement: hearing
or the ability to breathe or
bark. If your pet does not like
being dressed-up, try a scarf
of festive collar.
All but the most social
dogs and cats should be kept
in a separate room during
trick-or-treat visiting hours.
Too many strangers in cos-
tumes can be scary for an
animal. Also, animals may
find the front door opening
to-be too hard to resist, and
they could escape!
Make sure your cat or
dog is wearing proper identi-
fication. If for any reason
they escape and become lost,
you increase the chances
that they will be returned'to
If your pet should end up
getting lost, call Nassau
County Animal Services at
491-7440 and leave a'lost
report so they can assist you
in finding your pet.

not city government.

"We don't need a new

Elwell agreed. "I think we

Both Childers and Steger

because of the need to assure
funding for future beach renour-
"The beach renourishment

'Paintball is awesome

"Paintball is one of the cheap-
est and healthiest activities
that I have found to do. It pro-
motes discipline and team-
work," said William (Will)
Rose Jr.

News I.eader
Originally from Houston, Texas, Yul'e resident Will
Rose Jr. has been keen on paintball since he was about 9/
or 10 years old. "I kept bugging my dad to take me, then
one day my dad and his coworkers went out and I was invit-
ed to go with them. And then it began," said Rose.
"I enjoy shooting sports, hunting and first-person shoot-
ers. Paintball combines it all into an awesome package.
Rose is enthusiastic in his praise of GTF Paintball, its
owner and the referees.
"GTF Paintball has been the best painlball field I have
ever had the privilege to play at. The main focus is safety
at the field. A close second is the entertainment. That
alone puts the field above most fields. On top ofthat is the
field owner'and his team of operators," said Rose.
I 'The referees are referred to as'safety coordinators and
entertainment specialists.' The gentlemen that run the 'off-
playing field' area (field shop) go above and beyond what
one would expect at a paintball field. The guys will bend
over backwards to ensure that everyone is having a safe
and fun time."
When he's not splattering paint on people, the fun-lov-
ing bachelor is usually found riding hi's Yahama motor-
"Paintball is an adrenaline driven sport that allows
people from all walks of life to compete on the same level"
said GTF Paintball owner/operator, Robert I). Keeling
"You do not have to be the best athlete or the smartest
person or the bravest for that matter, you just have to go
out and play, and if you haven't you should."
GTF Paintball is located at 86101 Hotshot Trail. The
fields are open Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
and 2-6 p.m. or weekdays by appointment. Phone 548-7256

Information About Drinking Water for
JEA Customers in Nassau County

In September 2011, JEA's Lofton Oaks water grid in Nassau County did not
meet the drinking water standard for colifonn bacteria. Coliform bacteria are
naturally present in the environment and are generally not harmful themselves,
but are used as an indicator that other potentially harmful bacteria may be
present. Although this incident was NOT an emergency and your water is safe,
JEA is required to inform our customers of what happened and what we did to
address this situation. If this had been an actual emergency, you would have
been notified immediately. This notice only pertains to JEA customers in
Nassau .County.

JEA routinely monitors for total coliform bacteria in our drinking water systems.
In September we took our standard 15 monthly system samples to test for the
presence of total coliforms on the Lofton Oaks grid. Two of these samples tested
positive for total coliforms, but the potentially harmful E. coli bacteria.was not
detected. Systems that take less than 40 samples per period and that test
positive for more than one sample fail to meet the drinking water standard as
set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).The EPA has
determined that the presence of total coliforms is a possible health concern anld
requires potable water suppliers to issue a public notice any time the total
coliform standard is not met.

Additional confirmation sampling was immediately performed upon discovery
of this potential problem. All of the additional 6 samples collected were
satisfactory and indicated that total colifonns were not present. Chlorine was
maintained in the water throughout this period of time to help ensure bacteria
would not be present in your water.The results of all water quality testing and
operational safeguards indicate that a harmful situation did not exist, and the
use of alternative water sources or the need to boil your water was unnecessary.

People with severely compromised immune systenis, infants, and some elderly
may have been at increased risk. If you have specific health concerns, you
should seek advice from your health care provider. General guidelines on ways
to lessen the risk of infection by bacteria are also available from EPA's Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Customers may contact JEA's Customer Care Center at- (904) 6o,5-(,i0)t for
additional information concerning this note, or may write to JEA Water
Quality, 1002 North Main Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32206. Customers may
also contact the Florida Department of Environmental Protectin, Potable Water
Section at (904) 256-1700.

Please share this information with anyone who may drink this water, especially
those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, pe ple in
apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).You can do this by posting
this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail..

Do we want to be a city of excellence?

D)o the people of Fernandina
IBeach want our city to be a city
of excellence?
When someone asked me
this question a few months ago,
my first reaction was, "Of
course. Everyone wants to live
in a city of excellence."
But then I started thinking
about it and decided that I
might have been premature in
my answer. The recent discus-
sions over both the city's 2011-
12 budget and Forward
Fernandina projects have only
added to my uncertainty.
Fernandina Beach is a gem
of a city, blessed with out-
standing natural beauty, a
mixed economy that many
small cities could only dream of
and residents who care so
much about their fellow citi-
zens and the community that

hell: people;
that's part of

dini Beach
So why
then, with all
these positive

things going for us, does any-
thing involving local govern-
ment become so rancorous? We
may work together to help our
church or club, but doing so to
help our city seems to be much
more difficult. It's not just that
we disagree; after all, we all
come with different perspec-
tives gained over our life expe-
riences. It's that we become so
disagreeable. Instead of
approaching problems' for the
purpose of solving them, many
of us seem to prefer not solving
them and demonizing those
who would dare say ot herwise.
It is not necessarily a clash of
ideas about how to solve them.
Rather it is a statement that
some people have grown accus-
tomed to these problems, relish
complaining about them and
resent anyone making them go
away especially if by doing
the latter public money will be
spent, someone else may get
credit or those who said it
couldn't be done might have to
eat crow.
The crux of the problem

Always seems to be money:
whose money is being spent,
who stands to benefit most and,
most importantly, how will I
personally benefit. While many
of us talk about wanting to pre-
serve ci-.11htyletol 'for our
children and grandchildren, the
bottom line is that truly it is all
about us. And when times get
tough economically, we are
looking for someone to blame.
Putting a name on "someone"
often becomes difficult, espe-
cially when part of the problem
could well reside within our
own family,or even worse, our
own personal decision making.
So what do we do? We blame
government. The irony is that
in our system, the government
is the people.
What many of us fail to rec-
ognize is that failing to invest in
our city is akin to killing the
goose that laid the golden egg.
Our special hometown. "feel"
will not survive if the city low-
ers its standards for police and
fire protection, street mainte-
nance, utilities and parks. A
shabby looking city is both a
magnet for crime and a turn-
off for tourists who account for
Almost 40 percent of our local
economy. And what about those
Forward Fernandina projects?
Can anyone honestly say that
the riverfront is attractive or
usable in its present state? Or
that the appearance of Eighth
Street presents a welcoming

entrance to our city? Centre
Street has not been improved
since the redevelopment proj-
ect in the 1970's, and our his-
toric post office building is
gradually falling down due to
inadequate maintenance by the
USPS. Neighborhoods that bor-
der Eighth Street and the his-
toric districts need attention to.
correct drainage problems. And
while there is no easy answer
there does seem to be a con-
sensus that the existing down-
town library facility is inade-
quate to today's needs. Don't
all of us share in the responsi-
bility to make our city a little
better for those who come after
us, whether they are our chil-
dren, new businesses Or new
Some of the statements I've
heard most often locally from
those who oppose city actions
with price tags include:
Nobody ever asked me
what I think. An idea that has
come before the city commis-
sion for action has generally
traveled a long and winding
road first. There are first mul-
tiple publicly noticed meetings
where commissioners or city
committees welcome citizen
input; many of these meetings
are televised. Rarely do more
than a handful of people attend
any public meeting.
Government needs to get
smaller and cut taxes, not find'
new ways to spendmioney. How

small do we really want gov-
ernment to gel? This is a legit-
imate question that could use
some serious thought. Do we
want to go back to the days of
the Roman Empire, when the
homeowner negotiated with the
fire brigade to douse his house
fire? Or maybe adopt the emer-
gency response policy adopted
by Tracy, Calif., in 2010: charge
each household $48 for 911
service. The fee automatically
rises to $300 if the service is
actually used. There are always
ways to improve efficiency and
there are.always ways to cut
taxes. Unfortunately, these two
actions do not automatically
work in tandem. Sometimes it
costs money to improve effi-
ciency, and cutting taxes can
work against efficiency, caus-
ing longer response time for
police, fire, street repair, trash
pick-up and even permits.
This is all part of a con-
spiracy to benefit a specific per-
son or business. True conspir-
acies to defraud the public aire
criminal offenses: Despite
many colorful conspiracy the-
ories that make their way
around town with some fre-
quency, I've never seen any
charges brought or evidence
produced. But since it is all but
impossible to prove a negative,
those who constantly see black
helicopters circling the city
"have a field day here. They also
keep the city clerk's staff busy

with public records requests as
they try to "investigate" their
That's not how we do it in
Fernandina. That's probably
true on its face. The real ques-
tion is: Could there be a better
way than the traditional
Fernandina way? And how will
we ever know if we close off all
,* Borrowing money to fund
projects without a bond refer-
endum constitutes' taxation
without representation. Each
year the city and the county
adopt annual budgets in the mil-
lions of dollars without a citi-
zen referendum. The city and
the county (remember the ren-
ovation of the historic court-
house?) can also legally bor-
row money without a citizen
referendum. The five county or
city people who vote to spend
money on projects are repre-
senting citizens because they
were elected to do this job.
You may disagree with their
Vote, but it is all legally part of
representative government.
There are so many talented
and thoughtful people in our
city. Previous generations over-
came many hardships to build
this special place for us to enjoy.
Surely we can carry on in that
tradition if we commit to work
together in positive ways to
benefit not only ourselves, but
also those who will come after
us. Can we change the public
debate to be more focused on
,issues and alternatives as
opposed to attacking any new
idea and the people or group
who advance it? Can we
approach our problems more
like a barn-raising than like tn he
Jerry Springer Show? Or have
we become a city of people who
know the price of everything
and the value of nothing? We
can only become a city of excel-
lence if we strive to respect all
elements of our community and
accept that positive forward
movement means investment,
accountability and hard work
by our citizens, our business
and property owners and'our
government alike. If all of the
critics would commit to getting
involved in positive ways, just
think what an excellent city we
could become.

Don't need no stinking Internet

OK, repeat after me: We don't need no
steenkin' Internet.
Got it? OK, now please repeal after me:
Liar, liar liar, pants on fire.
My Internet service recently crashed. I
never realized just how addicted I am to Ihe
so-called World Wide Web until my 'net decid-
ed to get so tangled that it took my service
provider and all the king's horses and all the
king's men days and clays to unravel it again.
Dubya Dubya Dubya Doh! I couldn't even
check my dang email.
The first day wasn't so bad. Actually, that's
not true. I started pacing and sweating like a
junkie toward the end of the first day when I .
finally realized that (A) I really couldn't con-
nect to the infernal net and (B) I might be
missing something very, very, very important
as a consequence. Like spam or chain emails
or offers from Nigerian princes to share bil-
lions of dollars in gold bars if I'll only give
them my Social Security and credit card num-
bers, plus a measly little $400 as a show of
good faith.
"Come to bed, honey, and try not to think
about it," my wife urged me.
So I went to bed and read for 15 minutes
and then said I had to get up and get a glass of
water. And then I went straight to my comput-
er and attempted the niagic of "logging on."
My computer screen sat there and looked at
me as bland faced as a white cat as if to say,
"Admit it, Bubba. You're hooked like a. trout.
And a big, dumb trout, at that."
So I tried shutting down. That didn't work.

I tried rebooting. That didn't
work. I was tempted to just
plain old boot but decided
A against it. I disconnected my
S modem, counted to 60 and
reconnected it. Nope. Didn't
work. I shut the whole blast-
Sed system down, printer,
screen and all, disconnected
the modem and unplugged
CUP OF the electronic devil from the
JOE wall and went and got that
S glass of water I previously
lied about wanting.
Joe Palmer I stood by the refrigerator
sipping my ice water and say-
ing to myself, "Uh-huh. Yep. Gotcha this time."
"Honey, who are you talking to?" my wife
called from the bedroom.
"The dogs," I said, lying through my teeth.
"They're, uhhh, they're trying to raid the
pantry but I got 'em just in the nick of time."
My wife made an appearance in the door-
way. The two traitorous Great Danes trotted
out behind her, wagging their tails and giving
me their doggie grins as if to say,."Ohhh,
daddy. You've been a very naughty boy.
Mommy knows you're lying because we were
in there with her."
My wife's stare was as icy as the glass in
my hand.
"What are you up to?" she demand-
ed to know in a certain tone. "Are you in here
playing around with that dang computer?"
Another lie didn't seem politic: Under the

circumstances, it seemed downright suicidal.
So I threw myself on her mercy and begged
her to let me try hooking everything back up
and logging on one more time.
"For the love of God, woman," I pleaded.
"That nice Nigerian prince might already be
thinking about giving his millions to someone
else because he can't get hold of me. I was
supposed to get back with him no later than
.today at midnight and give him our Social
*Security numbers and banking account infor-
mation. Now I've probably blown the whole
So she leaned against the wall and folded
her arms and narrowed her pretty green eyes
at me and agreed to give me one more oppor-
tunity and that was that. After that, I was going
to bed and we could call the Internet service
provider the next day.
It took a few days of tinkering and back and
forth telephone calls to customer service exec-
utives or whatever my ISP calls the people
who take calls and listen to grown men cry but
we finally got it all worked out. Turns out
there was a glitch of some kind in the
whatchamadoodle connection to the airspacity
perplexitater on my modem. Shoot, if my wife
hadn't been so impatient, I would've eventually
figured it out. Her and those two Benedict
Arnold dogs of ours.
I never heard from the nice Nigerian
prince again. I guess his riches went to
some other lucky stiff. I also blew a great
chain email. I'll probably have bad luck for


Greenway trees
This is an updatejust so everyone knows tl
status of the Florida Department
Transportation and our Egans Creek Restoratic
Repair Plan.
1. At the Fernandina Beach Corhmission me
ing Oct. 18 FDOT presented their current plan
"reconstruct" our saltwater-damaged sou
Greenway between Jasmine and'Sadler road
As you may recall; FDOT and contractors wou
not listen to public input six-plus years ago ai
allowed 1,000 red maples and other trees to 1
killed by saltwater intrusion fiom the FDOT-m
igated salt marsh at the Atlantic Avenue part
the north Greenway. Fernandina Beach taxpa
ers' bond issue is paying for this land.
2. FDOT reported that other than soil tes
and removing a few strategic trees they hav
done nothing to start restoring our Greenway
3. "The Plan" they presented basically divide
damaged south Greenway into two sections of
percent versus 40 percent of the damaged acre
FDOT presents that the larger section will I
monitored only The smaller section will be mo
itored and some trees will be replanted as i
"experiment!" This is pathetically inadequate.
4. The reaction of the commissioners and tl
taxpayers was that we wvre again being forge
ten and insulted by FDOT and that their plan
just a bad joke. Fernandina Beach is just not
FDOT priority.
5. We are awaiting the FDOT public Nov. 141
meeting at Atlantic Avenue Recreation Centi
in hopes that FDOTwill present a realworkab
plan to reforest our blighted green space. Currei
FDOT efforts show not reforesting butreplacin
a few trees per acre as their idea of a restoratic
6. It has been suggested and discussed b
the public and the commissioners, city manag(
and city attorney that legal action may have to b
a possible result of FDOT's lack df interest an
action in the Fernandina Beach Egans Cree
restoration. To say Greenway and Fernandin
Beach advocates are upset with this situation
an understatement.
7. We have appealed to FDOT Secretar
Ananth Prasad, P E., for assistance in this import
tant matter. Our working from the bottom u
has not produced results thus our appeal.

I just saw the movie "Margin Call," which I
a found to be quite revealing about our financial sys-
ir tem. The message of the movie is the financial
c advisors do not care about people, they only care
it about numbers.
In his latest column Steve Nicklas criticizes the
w Forward Fernandina program. He singles out
h the investment in the library as something that
will not add to the attractiveness of our city.
Wrong; When visitors come to Fernandina down-
town they walk the street and visit the shops.

t added intellectual value that needs to be considl-
e ered. At least with a good library I get a good

s broaden your vision to more than numbers and

Cooler heads prevail
Several years ago a group of us were having
some trouble keeping a city public access-
open for the public use. I called. upon Mayor
Susan Steger. After listening to our situation, the
mayor was understanding of the problems
involved and very helpful in finding a solution.
Our dispute was with people who preferred to
have the access closed and has come to an end,
but the helpful ways of Mayor Steger have not
been forgotten.
Mayor Susan Steger cares deeply about the
people of Fernandina and has gone out of her way
to personally meet, listen to and connect people
in order to solve problems.
With her cool-headed, voice of reason
approach, Mayor Steger has brought the city of
Fernandina Beach together.
She has identified problems and created proac-
tive solutions. As examples, Mayor Steger has
strengthened the marina and golf enterprises by
bringing in experts in the field to manage them.
Mayor Steger recognizes the tremendous bene-
fits of the historic district as the heart and the eco-
nomic engine of this city. Shp is a great support-
er of downtown Fernandina, and has helped
elevate the quality of life in this great city, a ben-
efit to all citizens.
Alex and Stella Miller
East Hampton, N.Y.

The case for Steger
As a resident of our city for over 17 years I
Shave seen many different types of people embody
the office of mayor. Fighters, showoffs, micro-
managers, elitists, know-nothings, the list of
descriptions can be a mile long depending on
your point of view. Fernandina Beach is not a
high-water metropolitan city to be administered
by lifetime politicians, nor is it a backwater to-be
run by the village elders. It is a city that has a spec-
trum of citizens and needs requiring communi-
ty services. From an airport to waste collection
and all the services in between is the city of
Fernandina Beach, which resides under a mayor's
duty. In the past there have been successes that
have highlighted the wisdom of that administra-
tion at that time and failures that have drained city
funds with only-animpsity as the final result.
The case for the current mayor is based on
taking the failures of the past and reducing their
impact on community and looking toward the
future as one that must be nurtured and navigated
during these the most difficult economic times of
our lives. It requires careful thought and planning
and collaboration and not shoot from the hip
"live with it results." .
Steger's background in financial services
brings a sense ofwhat can be done with the dol-
lars, here, now and in the future. But more impor-
tantly what. cannot be done. She does not make
grandiose promises that cannot be fulfilled and
defends policies that are just and purposeful. She
approaches her duties in a methodical manner
well- within her depth and works with parties
sometimes at odds with each other to form a
coalition of the best ideas.
Improvements have been made to city depart-
ments such as Community Development where
opening a business has become a reality no
longer wrought with roadblocks. The inherited
wounds caused by the fixed-base operator of the
airport and the city have been healed with only
the amount that the lawyers' take home being at
issue. She has studied and brought the right peo-
pie to helm our causes outside our town limits and
removed those that were ineffectual.
Issues facing the city now will help shape how
we are perceived for decades. How do we take a
beautiful building such as the post office, which
is dilapidating further day by day, and turn it
into a place that will last twice its years of current
service. Issues with bringing business back into
areas beyond Centre Street. This is where a
methodical forward-thinking person must bring
citizens, other government agencies and third par-
ties together for the betterment of all. That is
where the current mayor excels.
If anything negative can be said, it is that she
doesn't communicate her success and the paths
that lead to them with the bravado of the typical
politician. It is true that communication is part of
the job; however, the most vocal politician
can be just a pied piper in nice clothes. Actions
and positive results arc what make our commiu-
nity a great place to live. The current mayor
does that through her skills and the skill of

bringing the right people to the situation.

Joyto the Children
This year will mark my ninth year working
with Joy to the Children. Since 2003 I have
watched hundreds of volunteers put in thousands
of hours. I have seen senior citizens, teenagers
and entire families fill the Yulee Elementary and
Middle School cafeteria on wrapping day and
.excitedly wrap presents for people they have
never met and never will. I have seeh people
show up on Christmas Day to serve others, even
though they -had to leave their own families at
home on what is considered one of the most spe-
cial "family" days of the year. I have seen local
restaurants prepare and deliver enough food to
feed over 300 people on one of the few days of the
year that their businesses are not open. I have
seen local businesses and residents make finan-
cial contributions to help provide a wonderful
Christmas to over 160 Nassau County children
and.their families. In short, I have seen the best
in many of our county's residents.
This Christmas, Joy to the Children will cel-
ebrate its 17th year in existence. The endeavor
started with 36 children and over the years has
served close to 2,500 children and their families.
Joy to the Children is an all-volunteer organiza-
tion and no one is paid for the time spent prepar-
ing for or helping on Christmas Day Joy's fami-
lies are selected through 18 Nassau County
schools and service organizations. Agency lists
are cross-referenced to ensure that assistance
is going to benefit as many families as possible.
It truly is a joy every year to see the smiles on
the faces of not only the children and their fam-
ilies we serve, but also the smiles on the faces of
the volunteers involved. Our organization has
been a blessing to the thousands of people who
have been involved throughout the years. If you
have the opportunity to give of your time or
money this year, I believe you will experience the
same joy that I and many others have felt. If you
would like to donatdor volunteer, go to our web-
site at www. Joytothechildren.org or send usan

'100 years

"Peck High, Peck High, oh, as the
years go by. we drift, yes, we drift, too.
Peck High. Peck High, you made the rain
clouds blue. Peck high, we do love you."
Words by Rychard S. Cook
The Peck High School has many
memories of what a great school it was,
and how important it is to the students
today as well as the community.
Recently the school celebrated 100
years of excellence, headed by the Peck
High School Alumni Association with
great leadership by President James
"Mickey" Mullen, an exceptional leader
who, along with the officers and staff,
made this year's celebration theme from
1911-2011, 100 years of excellence.
We thank God for those who worked
hard to make this celebration to be as
good as it was, to honor these important
years in our community history, under
our banner of excellence. We have pro-
duced authors, accountants, educators,
doctors, business executives, ministers,
mayors, military leaders, musicians,
morticians, librarians, highly technical
professionals and many who may not
have attended college, but through the
great educators of Peck, they were
taught how to respect each other and
treat others as people.
A great celebration that if you did not

There is so much to tell about the
keynote speaker. He was always an
exemplary student, graduated with hon-
ors from Peck High School in 1960 and
Gibbs Junior College in St. Petersburg
in 1962.
For some time, the local NAACP had
been looking for a black student whose
credentials could not be challenged to
gain admittance to the then prestigious
and segregated Presbyterian College,
was selected but, when the Boald of
Trustees learned he was black, was pot
admitted. The faculty resigned in
Our speaker was then admitted but
not informed of his status so he joined
the U.S. Army. The impact of this action
on the life of the college and how they
sought to redeem themselves has
become a part of its living history.
So on the 50th anniversary of the col-
lege in 2009, he was awarded honorary
alumnus status and received the hon-
orary doctor of humanities degree from
what is now Eckerd College.
No one can tell it better than he him-
self of how he made it where he is today.

'projects for Haitian earthquake

cleanup, sports programs and
the new In Search of Me Cafe
program for teens.
With his A/B performance
in school and basketball skills,
he aspires to a sports scholar-
ship in college and a career in
professional sports. The sky's
the limit for Victor!
Lauren has been a member
of the club for two years. In that
time, this 11-year-old credits
the club with a positive change
in her attitude toward others
and in helping her to develop a
serious determination to do
well -in her classes in sixth
grade at Fernandina Beach

Camden 8th-graders top FBMS

Fernandina Beach Middle School lhosled
the Camden County eighth graders ()ct. 20
fo-r the season finale, losing 16(-6 ( the visit-
ing Cougars.
"We knew we had a huge challenge in this
.gam'e. Camden was undefeated and hadn't
beaten anyone by less than 14 points, so we
knew we had to play a great game to gel the
win. Unfortunately we( made some crucial
mistakes that ended up costing us," said Cam
Harrison, FBMS football coach.
The Pirates gol the ball first and put
together a 14-play, 73-yard drive that took all
but 20 seconds off the first-quarter clock and
culminated with a Will Mitchell touchdown
run. After a failed extra point, the Pirates led
Camden responded on the next drive to
take an 8-6 lead; Both teams were unable to
muster anymore offense prior to the halftime
break and Camden led 8-6.
"We felt pretty.good going into the half.
Those guys beat Callahan 52-14, Bolles 36-20
and St. Marys 28-14, so we felt good about
having the game in a position for us to get a
win," Harrison said.
The Pirates got a boost on the second half
kickoff as Camden fumbled the ball and
FBMS recovered. After back-to-back
Mitchell runs put the Pirates inside the two-
yard line, fullback lector Vanlennep was
stripped of the ball and Camden recovered to
thwart the scoring opportunity.
The Pirates stopped the ensuing Camden
drive when Mitchell intercepted a deep pass
from the Camden quarterback. FBMS wasn't
be able to take advantage and the Vanlennep
punt was partially blocked to put the Camden

lft'nsi in ,god firld position. lThey took
aidvailtflag, scoring on tlhir second play to
extend Ilb h'ad to 16-6.
As the fourth quarter clock began to run
out, the Pirates got another scoring oppoii)rtIu-
nily, driving the ball derp into Camden terri-
tory for a first-and-goal from inside the three-
yard line. The Camden defense responded,
stuffing the Pirates' attempts to punch it into
the end zone on four consecutive downs and
forcing a ttrnover.
The Cougar offense ran out the game
clock to secure a hard-fought 16-6 win.
"I was very pleased with our effort,"
garrison said. "This was one of those games
where if we don't make a few of those mis-
takes we might have been able to get the win.
Unfortunately it didn't quite work out for us,
but I am proud of how hard our boys fought.
"That team we played has boys that will be
competing for state titles in Georgia in a few
years. This group has a bright future, and I'm
excited to watch these guys help put FBHS
football on the map."
Mitch:ll had 156 yards on 17 carries, Kyle
Organ 62 on six, Vanlennep 15 on nine and
Tyreke Hubbard three for 20.
Daishon Brown led the FBMS defense
with nine tackles. Mitchell had four along
with an interception. Darrian Wentworth had
four tackles. Marshall Thompson had three
.stops, a quarterback sack and a fumble recov-
ery. Horgan had three tackles and a fumble
recovery. lubbard and Chase Karpel had
three tackles apiece; Cody Byrd had two. 4
The Pirates finish the 2011 season with a
5-3 record, including a 42-20 win over county
rival Yulee.
