itv to move ahead on $2 million loan


Despite the election results,
Fernandina Beach Commissioners will
consider Tuesday whether to approve
a $2 million revenue note to pay for the /
first step of the Forward Fernandina
capital improvements.
The loan would be repaid with up
to a 2 percent franchise fee added to
residents' and businesses' electricity
The commission also will consider
a $176,318 contract with Zev Cohen &
Associates Inc. for the engineering,

I think it should be tabled until the new
commission takes office. The people
just spoke, and that's what they said.'

design and permitting of Front Street
improvements and building an
Alachua Street crossing over the rail-
road to Front Street. These are the
main projects in the first stage of the
proposed $6 million Forward

Fernandina strategic plan.
Commissioners are scheduled to
hold thqir regular monthly meeting
at 6.p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 204
Ash St.
The commissioners are poised to

act despite voters' rejection Tuesday of
incumbents who supported the strate-
gic plan in favor of those who didn't.
Charles Corbett trounced Mayor
Susan Steger, 59-41 percent, and
Commissioner Eric Childers got just
26 percent of the vote in losing out to
Sarah Pelican and John Elwell, who
are in a runoff election Dec. 13.
But the new commission does not
take office until Dec. 20, leaving the
current board in place until then.
Corbett, for one, objects to Tuesday's
proposed vote.
"I think it should be tabled until
the new commission takes office," he

said Thursday. 'The people just spoke,
and that's what they said."
Corbett asserted during his cam-
paign that the financing plan for
Forward Fernandina should have
,been subject to a bond referendum,
but the commission decided not to go
that route. Tuesday's election "was a
referendum on Forward Fernandina,
sure it was," he said.
Corbett said he shares some of the
objectives in the plan, but "at this par-
ticular time, in this economy, to put us
$2 million in hock?"

Honor our veterans

World War 1I veteran Thomas Pelle next to Witchcraft, which was
at the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport for the Collings
Foundation's Wings of Freedom Tour last week.

World War II vet

remembers the day

At 87 years of age, World War II
veteran Thomas W. Pelle still vividly
remembers the day his right leg was
shot off during a Japanese airstrike
over the Pacific Islands.
I Born on May 24, 1924, in
Louisville, Ky., Pelle joined the U.S.
Army Air Corps Aviation Cadets in
August 1942. After training, Pelle
was assigned to fly missions out of
numerous Pacific islands, including
New Georgia, Los Negros, Morotai,
Wakde, Admiralty and Nuemfoor,
among others.
"We lived in tents," Pelle recalls.
"The 13th Air Force was called the
Jungle Air Force because we flew
out of the jungle only."
It was in October 1944 when
Technical Sergeant Pelle was a
machine gunner on a B-24 Liberator
in the 307th Bombardment Group,
and he lost his leg in an air battle
with the Japanese. The crew was
coming back from a mission that
began in Nuemfoor, to bomb oil
refineries in Balikpapan, Borneo, that
the Japanese had taken over.

"My leg was shot off and I didn't
even feel it," Pelle says. "I saw a leg
on the ground with a foot wearing a
shoe, and I thought it was someone
Pelle says he was also hit in the
calf of his left leg, but two crew mem-
bers, a tail gunner and bombardier,
used their belts as tourniquets on
both of Pelle's legs to stop the bleed-
"They saved my life," Pelle says.
"There were 420 holes in the plane
,from anti-aircraft fire and enemy
planes. All 23 planes were hit. Only
one made it back."
Pelle says he received 12 blood
transfusions after the B-24 Liberator
landed in New Guinea. After that, he
was sent to recuperate in Temple,
Texas, at McCloskey General-
Hospital, a medical facility for wound-
ed soldiers and amputees. Pelle was
in the hospital for 13 months.
While waiting for an artificial limb
to be made, Pelle says he borrowed
a fellow amputee's prosthetic leg to
get practice walking.
"He was 6 feet tall and I was 5

Julie Mixon Bargeron has created a foundation to honor the mem-
ory of her ,6n, SPC Kelly Mlixon of Fernandina Beach, above, who
gave his life for.his, country on Dec. 8, 2010, in Afghanistan at the
age of 23.

Mother's loss leads to

Cupcakes for a Cause

"He was my best friend. I feel like
I lost out twice. I really miss our con-
versations," said Julie Bargeron,
whose son, SPC Kelly Mixon, 23, of
Fernandina Beach was killed in
action in Chehel Gazi, Kandahar
Province, Afghanistan, on Dec. 8,
Searching for a way through the
indescribable pain of losing her son,
Bargeron found solace in an online
support group for Gold Star mothers,
women who have lost children in
service to their country.
"That group has helped :i'
me along tremendously.
Everyone's at different
lengths of time; some lost
their kids at the beginning of
Iraq and some people are
newer than me."
As a way to honor the sac- -
rifice of the other Gold Star Barger
mothers, Bargeron designed
a bracelet featuring a gold
crystal star.
Scanning a website which lists
new casualties, Bargeron learns the
names of mothers there.
The bracelets are $35 and
Bargeron funds the cost of the com-
ponents with another project that's
close to her heart, Kelly's Cupcakes
for a Cause.
"Kelly had two things he loved -
drumming and cooking. So I thought
I could combine those two things by
making cupcakes. Part of the profit
goes to making the bracelets and the
other part goes to the drumline at
Fernandina Beach High School," said

Bargeron sells the cupcakes at
the farmer's market in St. Marys,
Ga. near where the family now
Mixon was a sous chef at PLAE
before joining the Army and was also
an avid drummer at the high school
as well as with the Jacksonville
Jaguars drumline.
"When he was home on Rand R,
he hung out with the kids at the high
school and helped teach them on the
drums," said Bargeron.
Bargeron has set up the Kelly
Mixon Foundation at Compass Bank
to fund two scholarships.
"One will be for culinary
studies and" the other will
sponsor a youth who wants
to try out for drum corps,"
said Bargeron.
"The auditions can get
expensive because of.travel
and lodging so this would
on help pay for that."
In addition, the founda-
tion will sponsor deployed
soldiers in need of packages, sup-
port and encouragement.
Bargeron is also working on plans
to set up an annual Gold Star
Mothers Reunion-in Fernandina
Mindful of the "first angelversay"
of Mixon's death Dec. 8 and his birth-
day Dec. 21, the family is planning a
private celebration of Kelly's life Dec.
17 at the Fernandina Beach Woman's
Club for family and friends.

in 5 years

The highest city election voter
turnout in five years was apparently a
result of dissatisfaction with the incum-
bents. Two of the challengers now
face off in a Dec 13 runoff election.
There -*et 2;110 voters in the city
election, orT256percent of registered
voters, the highest since 2006, when
27.4 percent of voters cast ballots. That
compared to the last general election
turnout of 1,357, or 16 percent, in April
2010, 19 percent in 2009, 12 percent in
2008 and 15.5 percent ini 2007.
This was the first city election in
November since the commission voted
to move it to encourage higher voter
turnout. Although there were no bal-
lot issues apart from city elections, a
relatively large number of voters came
out to register their opinions.
Incumbent Mayor Susan Steger
and Commissioner Eric Childers were
defeated by wide margins. Charles
Corbett beat Steger, 1,230 to 857, or 59
:percent to 41.percent.
Childers ran third in his race with
535 votes, or 26 percent. Sarah Pelican
got 966 votes," 47 percent, and John'
Elwell 562, 27 percent. A runoff was
scheduled since no candidate got a
majority of more than 50 percent of
the votes.
Elwell and Pelicani both ran on a
campaign against the status quo, ques-
tioning the Forward Fernandina plan
to borrow $6 million for capital
improvements on the waterfront and
downtown. Both were critical of the
commission vote in September to raise
property taxes and fees. Each found
fault with city management and prom-
ised a change for the better. Now each
must strive to distinguish their
approach to city government.
The two new commissioners will
take office Dec. 20, joining Jeffrey
Bunch, Arlene Filkoff and Tim Poynter
on the commission. If form holds,
Filkoff will be named mayor by the
commission since she won a straw bal-
lot Tuesday.
Each commissioner is elected to
serve a three-year term. Bunch and
Poynter's seats are up for election in
2012, Filkoff's in 2013.
Voters also agreed to proposed
changes to the City Charter by large
margins. None of the 10 housekeeping
City Charter changes was controver-
sial, and each received an affirmative
vote from at least 75 percent of the

Heart disease is the num-
ber-one killer of women in the
U.S. but many women are not
aware of their risk. And if they
have a heart attack, they may
not even recognize what is hap-
pening because women's symnp-
toms are often very different
from men's, which are much
more widely reported.
"Just as women know of the
benefit of getting gynecological
* exams and mammograms, we
need to be aware of our risks for
heart disease and be checked
regularly," says Susan Allen-
SLimerley. director of Cardiovas-
cular Health Services at Baptist
Health. "Sadly. though, heart
care is not even on the radar
screen for many women."
HeartWise was designed by
a team of Baptist Health physi-
cians to help women learn about
and address their cardiovascu-
lar risks so they can enjoy life
with a healthier heart. For aS49
flat fee. women receive a one-
hour appointment at Baptist

His career in
law enforce-
ment began as

cer atJacksonville International'
Airport. In 1974, Mr. Barry
'began work for the Palatka
Police Department until the mid
80's. Along with his family, Mr.
Barry relocated to Fernandina

Water lawns only 1 day a week now

PALATKA Starting last
Sunday, landscape irrigation has
returned to no more than one
(lay a week across the 18 coutn-
ties of the St. Johns River Water
Management District, includ-
ing Nassau County.
The beginning of Eastern
Standard Time marked the
third year of one-day-per-week
watering restrictions during
Florida's cooler months. Water-
ing restrictions are designed to
allow enough water to maintain
healthy landscapes year-round
and also to ensure the efficient
use of water for landscape irri-
gation by specifying the days
and time of day when watering
may occur and the amount of
water that may be applied.
With more than half of com-
mercial and residential water
use occurring outdoors, manda-
tory watering restrictions are
in place throughout the year to
ensure the efficient use of water
for lawn and landscape irriga-
tion. Watering wisely promotes
healthier lawns and landscapes.
When EST is in effect, out-
door irrigation is limited to no
more than one day a week on
the following schedule:
Saturday at addresses that
end in an odd number or have
no address
Sunday at addresses that
end in an even number
Tuesday at nonresidential
No irrigation is allowed
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
In addition, irrigation is lim-
ited to 3/4 inch of water per irri-
gation zone and to no more than
one hour per irrigation zone.

A refinancing wave

Mortgage rates have been
dropping for years, and many

refinance their homes Up

they would continue to be

County aims to remove transportation rule

C'ves Iader
In light of a July 1 change to
state law, Nassau County
Commissioners have voted to
initiate the process of amending
eleni nos of the 2030
Comprehensive Plan to remove
transportation concurrency.
The Community Planning
Act assigned planning authori-
tv to local governments and
reduced state oversight in the
planning process. It eliminated
a state requirement for parks,
schools and transportation con-
currency, but leaves them as
options for local governments
to consider.
"Once again, the main
Ihrust of this amendment it
will eliminate transportation
concurrency as a requirement
of the Comprehensive Plan,"
said I)oug McDowell, strategic
planner with the county Growth
Management Department.
Transportation concurren-
cy is a roadway's ability to han-
dle the traffic impact of new
McDowell said that while
the law made transportation
concurrency optional, it

adopted removing transporta-

Community Newspapers
The future of the St. Johns.
River Ferry is threatened again.
Jacksonville Port Authority
CEO Paul Anderson said that
Jaxport would go to the
Jacksonville mayor and city
council to discuss the future of
a service that "continues to lose
money," Nancy Rubin, director
of communications for Jaxport,
told the Mayport Waterfront
Partnership on Monday.
The ferry takes vehicles,
bicyclists and pedestrians
across the St. Johns River from
Mayport fishing village to
Heckscher Drive. Jaxport took
over operations of the ferry Oct.
,1, 2007, after the city of
Jacksonville said it could no
longer afford to continue run-
ning the service.
Rubin said Jaxport took the
ferry as a "community partner"
to extend the life of what it
described as a valuable service,
but Jaxport needs "every dol-
lar that we have" to invest in
port projects and try to turn
those projects into jobs.
Rubin said that Jaxport has
invested, between subsidies and
capital investment, more than
$3 million in running the ferry.
She said Jaxport has budgeted
$680,000 for ferry operating
subsidy and potential capital
expendit tres of $178,000 for the
current fiscal year, which start-
ed Oct. 1.
Partnership member
Claudia Estes said the ferry
should not be considered a busi-
ness, but "should be considered
a service."
Carroll Huffines, also a
member of the partnership, said
that the Mayport Waterfront
Partnership's position on the
ferry has not changed the
ferry should be kept in service.
Rubin said it would take a
"major infusion of ridership" to
continue ferry operations, say-
ing that there were 279,000 rid-
ers the first year, compared to
230,000 riders last year. Rubin
said the drop could be attrib-
uted to an initial increase in the
fee to ride the ferry, as well as
the recession and increase in
gas prices. Rubin also said that
the current fare is $5, and every
time the fare is raised there is a
drop in riders, "so you can't just
raise the fares and figure the
same number of riders."
Val Bostwick, a partnership
member and also of the Friends
of the St. Johns River Ferry,
said the ferry is never going to
"break even, it's never going to
make money," it's a service.
"If the ferry is ever shut
down," Bostwick said, "I don't
think we'll ever get it back. So I
think it would behoove us to do
what we can to let everyone,

from the legislature, to the coun-
cil, to the mayor, Jaxport, JTA,
etc., know that this is a vital link
and we need to keep it running.
"We've got a short time
frame for this to be budgeted
for next year, because it's only
good through September 30 of
next year; the funding goes
away after that, assuming that
that's the decision they make."
The ferry is a link in AlA,
which is a state road.

Amending the comp plan -
according to NMe Dowell would
benefit Nassal County in a
number of ways, including giv-
ing the county more responsi-

sprawl and promoting better
community design. But, he
noted, it would help primarily
by attracting new development
and jobs.

For the News Leader
On Oct. 22, 65 Seaview
neighbors gathered to cele-
brate Seaview's 100th birthday
at a street party on Alachua
Avenue out on the beach.
Before sitting down to sup-
per, Minta Caine delivered the
invocation, Tucker Arnold sang
an original song extolling the
wonders of living in Fernandina
Beach and Blair Strain spoke
about oui- love of the sea, our
gifts, diversity, and how each
of us can walk out to the beach
in the morning while our cof-
fee's still hot.
Blair singled out a few of the
heroes living within our 38-acre
neighborhood: New Fire Chief
Chuck Bogle; Vice Mayor Tim
Poynter; Sally MacDonald, who
recently bicycled from
Fernandina Beach to the Pacific
Ocean; Eric Bartelt, a second-
generation city Planning
Advisory Board member whose
parents were largely responsi-
ble for the beach walkovers on
each block along South
Fletcher; Tony Crawford for his
unending support to the city
youth sports programs, espe-
cially the baseball team; Ned
Tyson, for his promotion of
exercise to enhance good
health, starting the annual
Pirates Run and impressing
everyone with the dignity which
he lived his final days. Blair wel-
comed Jim Caine back from
active duty in Afghanistan, and
then asked the many residents
who have served in our armed
forces to raise their hands and
be recognized. The applause
was long and strong.
Before cutting a Ms.
Carolyn's Pifia Colada cake and
the opening of the desert table,
Doug Bailey toasted Seaview's
developer, Leopold Beugnet, for
recognizing 100 years ago the
beauty of the land and the par-
adise that folks like us now call
home. Leopold was the Nassau
County judge and a man of
many talents. Leopold's great-
great-granddaughter, Sheila
Beugnet, who lives in
Fernandina Beach, attended the
celebration as our honored
The event provided neigh-
bors the opportunity to recon-
nect With, even meet, neighbors
old and new, which will serve to
strengthen community in
Seaview. There was a cry from
many for future Seaview events.

Fair Trade Market
The Presbyterian Women of First
Presbyterian Church would like to thank the
entire community who supported our Fair
Trade Market on Oct. 8.
Our sales of fine gifts and items that have
been produced by women (and some men)
around the world, who are able to better their
lives, educate their children and build better
homes, will benefit peoples from Haiti,
India, Uganda, Mexico and Asia. Mexican
farmers who grow, roast and distribute their
own-coffee, women rescued from the slave
trade in India and the artisans of Haiti who
are still recovering from the earthquake
there are all supported by the sale of these
Our thanks also go out to Burger King
and Digital Village for help with publicity of
this event. We appreciate their generous assis-
tance in our foreign mission for this year.
The many members who worked and
shopped at our Fair Trade Market made this
a success for the second year and we look
forward to another market next year.

Pasta for Paws
Your Nassau Humane Society celebrated
its 7th Annual Pasta for Paws event on Oct. 22
at the Atlantic Avenue Rec Center and it was
a tremendous success. It has become one of
the most popular events on the island, and it
is entirely due to the hard work and dedication
of its volunteers and the outstanding support
of our community.
Volunteers work on this fundraiser two
months prior to the event, planning, making
sauces and meatballs and gathering silent
auction items from generous local business-
es, then volunteer their time to put on the
event. The result of.this effort supports daily
care and medical attention for animals taken
in at our shelter until they can find their "fur-
ever" homes.
We'd like to say "thank you" to Harris
Teeter for providing us with all of our meat:
Alan Miller and Acosta Sales & Marketing
for arranging to have vendors supply us with
many other ingredients, saving NHS money
that can be used to support the shelter; Frank
Basile and his band, Frankie's Jazz Jam (their
wonderful music set the mood for a very spe-
cial evening); the News-Leader for letting the
community know about our event; Susan Boyd
for hours of work and her own investment in
preparing the beautiful silent auction baskets
- wow!; all of the local businesses and indi-
viduals that provided funds and auction items
(we know you receive many requests for items
and we really appreciate your support); all of
the people who baked delicious homemade
desserts; our dynamic Adoption Waggin' for
bringing some of our adoptable animals to
the event; and all of our volunteers and atten-
dees who made this such a festive and suc-
cessful event.
We fed close to 600 people this year with
no waiting lines and many happy faces. Thank
you all; we couldn't provide the care these
wonderful animals need without your sup-
port. Please visit us online at www.nassauhu-
manesociety.com, or al-the shelter on Airport
Road or at our clog park next to the shelter.
Please consider becoming a member, volun-
teering, adopting or donating to make a dif-
ference in the lives of these very special ani-

'Fire in the hole' is their refrain

am responding to a lteIer published Nov. 2
which asked 10the question, "Support troops
or pirates?"
My answer is both. A large percentage
of membership of the Fletri adlina Pirates Club
are former military and proud to be so.
The letter writer stated that during last
year's Veterans Day parade hie made a "direct
appeal to the driver of the Pirate Float to stop
making any more noise."
First of all, those military lmen and
women who returned home, aind those that
did not, fought and laid down their lives for the
ideas of freedom and democracy in which our
greilt country was founded. We enjoy the ftree-
doml to have a parade and celebrate and with
celebrations come laughter, happiness and
Second, the float driver's duty is to safely
maneuver the float through the streets of the
parade route. He or she has nothing to do with
the firing of the float's cannon or the amount
of noise it makes. The.letter writer's attempt to
directly address thlie driver of a truck pulling a
large, occupied float during a parade was dan-
gerouls and irresponsible.
He never contacted the rFernandina Pirates
Club directly. A simple Google search (in the
Internet would have found us at www.feinandi-
He instead chose to contact the Fernandinai
, Police Department, the American .legion, City
- Hall and finally the city commission to com- -
plain the Pirates made too much noise-during
last year's Veterans Day parade; and he

A parade without noise is like
a dog without a bark!

requested the Pirates not be permitted to do
so this year. You have to be kidding!
A parade without noise 'is like a dog without
a bark! The Shriners' horns, the police car's
siren, the fire engine's alarm and the honking
of a clown car all contribute to the excitement
of a parade and are no louder in decibels than
the firing of our black powder props. When we
fire the cannon, we always shout; "Fire in the
hole!" Then we collectively hold our ears and
count to three before firing.
As for the animals you believe appeared
traumatized at the parade, I believe it is the
irresponsible pet owner that brings a skittish
dog to a crowded event.
Amelia Island proudly celebrates our Pirate
The Fernandina Pirates, a nonprofit organi-
zation, has been working with the city of
Fernandina Beach, Nassau County and local
charities for over 38 years. In fact, both the
city and county have made proclamations
declaring the Fernandina Pirates Club their
"Goodwill Ambassadors to the World."
Our Pirates are all volunteers and they
work on such projects as Joy To The Children,
Adopt a Family for Thanksgiving, Adopt a

Family for Christmas, Old Town Bicentennial
Festival, Sounds on Centre, Fernandina High
School, Fernandina Middle School, the local
elementary schools, MDA, Katie Caple's Ride
for Life, Blood Drives, Amelia Island Film
Festival, Amelia Arts Academy, Council on
Aging, Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival,
Breast Cancer Awareness, the museum's Road
Scholar Program, American Heart
Association, Habitat for Humanity, Alzheimer
Association, Boardwalk Bash, Sun Splash,
Relay for Life And many, many others.
In addition, the Pirates have supported and
participated in numerous parades around the
Southeast region promoting Nassau County,
and we are well received with generous smiles
and gleeful shouts from children.
Hopefully the letter writer found a new way
to celebrate Veterans Day this year. However,
if he attended Fort Clinch's History of the
American Soldier, I hope he was aware they
have living historians from each major U.S.
military conflict including firing demonstra-
tions from our country's rich history. Or per-
haps he may have chosen to attend
Jacksonville's SALUTE Veterans Day Concert
and Picnic, but be warned, they offer several
live bands as part of their festivities.
While we are truly sorry he didn't enjoy
our parade presentation, he did fight for our
country's citizens to have freedom. That
includes freedom of choice and he has the
choice to wear earplugs.

Fernandina Pirates Club, Inc.


Patriotic display
I'm sure that all of mny fellow
Veterans Day participants would
concur that we appreciated the
enthusiastic display of patriotism by
those hardy (cold plus windy) souls
lining the parade route.

Jennie and I became certified EMTs.
New laws were passed that' said
every rescue unit must carry an

injured person, we would normally
take them to the nearest emergency

ure of beIing one.oflheir customers.

spikes of around 400 volts are pos-
sible; home electronics are not built
to withstand a surge of that magni-
When we called in the power
loss, FPL was very polite about
explaining that "that's how the sys-
tem protects itself."
Nice, it protects itself, but
destroys the things belonging to us
that are supposed to use it. Sounds
a bit like cancer.
We have had so many discus-
sions with FPL that they nowhave
us on a personal answering line.
What we don't understand is why
more people don't call in even the
smallest of power losses. These are
more destructive to you than are
the long outages.
When you call in a power loss
two thing happen: First, the auto-
matic answering system blames
your house for the problem and,
when that fails, they get around to
asking for details about the failure'.
You can bet they will try to blame
something in your home for the
problem. They will have you chase
through all the breakers, the lamps
and fans, the AC and water heater.
When all excuses have failed line-
men show up and ask about the
power loss. After all is said and done
they will admit that someone
sneezed in Miami and caused one of
the FPI. local relays to drop out.
Other of the favorite excuses are
the weather and the trees.
An occasional outage due to
exceptional condition is under-
standable, but let's be clear about the
weather and the trees: both were
here when FPL put in their service,
and some of the FPLgear goes back
to the time when the weather start-
ed. It may be news to the newer
FPIL management, but Florida does
have weather and trees.

Is this crazy or what?
Are the inmates running the
asylum? I'm referring to front-
page coverage of a county commis-
sion meeting ("County pair chided,"
Chairman Walter Boatright, was
blasting Robert McKinney and Tom
Milligan for the decision to investi-
gate safety issues presented by a
temporary stage built for the
Northeast Florida Fair. All Chairman
Boatright cared about was the fact
that Mr. McKinney left his office at
3:30 p.m. to go and check out the
stage. When McKinney tried to tell
about the temporary stage in
Indiana (that collapsed and killed
six people) Mr. Boatright would
not let him speak and said, "I didn't
ask you about Indiana." A quick
inspection revealed inadequate
framing and decking no hand rail-
The State Fire Marshal had con-
tacted them of concerns following a
safety inspection on Sept. 21. The
report listed 16 violations. All we
ever hear about the county depart-
ments is negative and now when
people are doing their jobs, they get
blasted by the county commission
Mr. McKinney is Building
Department director, and Mr.
Milligan is Facilities Maintenance

"substandard diplomacy" in refer-
ence to safety issues of the tempo-
rary stage at the fair.

Age discrimination
On one of today's morning news
channels there was a story, "Should
People Over 70 be allowed to drive?"
They went on to talk about what a
danger they were.
My mother is 92, still drives to the
grocery store and drives each week
to visit my sister 35 miles away.
There will be a day when she cannot
drive safely, but she says it makes
her tired to drive too far anymore,
and I am sure she will stop.
Now let's look at the 18-25-year-
old safety issues. They are texting or
talking on the phone while still learn-
ing to drive. (My mother can do nei-
ther because she still has not set up
her voicemail on a phone in her
house.) Then you have the gunners
who you see flying toward your car
at twice the speed limit. Many even
like to sort of cut you off when they
return to your lane. There are other
categories: a pickup truck that is on
wheels that make it 10 feet taller
than your car; expensive sports cars
with four girls on the phone, hair
flying as they pass you; then my
favorite car and driver. He drives a
discolored late model black Camaro
that has run me off the road twice.
And let's not forget our favorite
drivers who are pedal to the metal
logging trucks that seem driven (a
pun) to be within five feet from your
rear bumper then attempt to drag
on your windstream and pass you
while they are going over the Shave
Drinking and drugs? )Over 70 ver-
sus under 70. My mother does not
know what uppers and downers are,
let alone Ecstasy, blow, smack and
whatever else is out there, like beer.
Now that I think about it, Morn does
tend to drink at least two cups of tea
every dlay.
How do you know when it's time
for the elderly to stop driving?
Usually they figure it out. Or they
have a few "younger" friends who
firmly suggest mom ride with them
in their car routinely. Picking on 70-
year-olds and up? I will be 70 before
you know it, and it seems there are
a lot of other driving concerns that
should have a higher priority.

PB&J drive equals

2,760 sandwiches

Throughout October the Girl Scouts of Nassau
County and the Nassau County Volunteer Center
partnered on the 13th Peanut Butter and Jelly
Drive to collect these food staples for the needy.
Food bins were placed in schools, churches,
banks and businesses as the two organizations
publicized the campaign in coordination with the
Oct. 22 nationwide "Make A Difference Day."
Approximately 143 Girl Scouts and more than
:345 volunteers were involved locally. In all, 310
pounds of peanut butter and 258 pounds of jelly
were collected enough for 2,760 sandwiches.
Since the drive began 13 years ago, over 7,000
pounds of peanut butter and jelly have been col-
Recipients of the food included the Barnabas

Babbling brooks, mountain roads and finding God's rest

I couldn't believe what I was hear-
ing. If I closed my eyes and just lis-
tened, I might have thought we were
leaning against the fence at a
NASCAR racetrack. 'he only prob-
lem was, according to the website, all
we were supposed to be hearing was
the sound of the babbling brook run-
ning by our cabin. VWouldn't you
know, due to a recent drought, even
the babbling brook had dried up and
was little more than a trickling faucet.
At a time when my wife and I desper-
ately needed some rest, it was clear;
the place we had chosen was not
going to be much help.
As the locals raced up and down
the mountain road, even I was having
a hard time believing my attempts to
convince my wife that things would
get better. Though I was tired, and



wanted nothing to
do with looking for
another place, to
burn up our pre-
cious five days near
a dried-up brook
and a road that was
clearly a hillbilly
raceway just wasn't
UT u IT going to cut it.
Thankfully, the
NOTES owners of the
-.... mountain vacation
spot were willing to
Pastor work with us and
)b Goyette let us leave with no
cancellation fee.

Now I'm not sure how it is with
you, but it seems like whenever we
set out to take time off, there's always
something that tries to get in the way..

Granted, I should have dug deeper
than the fancy website and its so-
called babbling brook, but just the
same, legitimate seasons of rest don't
seem to come easy for me. Recently,
through a man who's nearly 100
years old, I think I finally found out
For him, rest is not something
you go looking for but rather some-
thing you carry with you. I know, at
first I had to ponder it for a few min-
utes myself, but as I did, it made
sense. Somehow, after almost a cen-
tury of traveling and ministering all
over the world, this dear old man had
figured out one of life's great secrets.
Rest is an internal state of being, not
an outward set of circumstances.
Like Jesus, fast asleep on the
small fishing boat while his disciples

frantically despaired for their lives,
rest is something available anywhere
and at anytime. Now obviously, that
doesn't mean that taking a vacation is
wrong or unnecessary, but if that is
the sum total of what rest means to
us, we have missed what God had in
mind. Think about it. How many
times have you heard people say that
when they get home from a vacation
they need a vacation to recover from
their vacation? Though we all laugh,
there's more truth to the statement
than most care to admit.
According to the dictionary, one
definition of rest is, "To lean in confi-
dence; to trust; to rely; to repose
without anxiety." I like that. The idea
of leaning in confidence on God, of
trusting Him daily for all my needs,
of doing life without worry, stress or

hunts at night, eating rabbits, rodents, small
mammals, reptiles and birds. With dark
bi'own short, dense fur with black spots
and bars and white undersides, and known
for its "bobbed" tail and tufted ears, the
bobcat tries to avoid encounters with
humans and prefers to live a solitary life at
the edges of maritime

forests and marshes. On Amelia, bobcats
are often spotted in Fort Clinch State Park,
along Egans Creek Greenway, and even on
the paths near the airport and surrounding

Nature festival adopts

'Squall' the turtle

The Wild Amelia Nature
Festival has "adopted" Squall,
the 170-pound loggerhead that
was released on Amelia Island
last month.
The turtle, injured in a
shark attack, had been res-
cued by the Georgia Bulldog
research vessel during a squall
off Jacksonville, hence, the tur-
tle's name. The turtle had
wounds to a flipper, its cara-
pace and plastron.
The staff of the Georgia Sea
Turtle Center on Jekyll Island
rehabilitated the turtle and felt,
though its wounds were not
100 percent healed, tlat Squall
would do best in its ocean
home. Squall's progress in the
ocean can be monitored on the
website, www.georgiasea-
turtlecenter.org since it was
released with a satellite track-
ing device.
Georgia Sea Turtle Center
in-hospital and released
patients can be "adopted" by

donations, so Wild Amelia
Nature Festival thought it fit-
ting to adopt Squall. For more
information on the Georgia
Sea Turtle Center and the
adoption program, visit their
The Wild Amelia Nature
Festival is now a year-round
nature education organization,
dedicated to educating the
public about the wildlife and
wild places of Amelia Island.
Their next program will be
"Starry, Starry Skies," an
evening of stargazing at Fort
Clinch under moonless skies
on Friday, Nov.
18; this "Wild Nite" begins
at 7 p.m. and is free and open
to the public.
The sixth annual Wild
Amelia Nature Festival will be
held from May 18-20, 2012.

only the top three teams got
to move on (Bishop Kenny,
Bolles, Episcopal) and, of
course, we were fourth.
"If there would have been
seven or more complete
teams, the district would have
qualified four teams. We
knew we needed to be fourth.

easily attainable but we did it.

group this year are Dolores Lord and

dimension added to our tour by these
talentedd designers. They will greatly
enhance each of the delightful homes

while the Plantation Shop displays its
signature look with more of a traditional
island Christmas design. Diane LaPatra

ornaments at the home on North 4th
Street but display them in a unique way.
"The talent these artists exhibit is
always amazing," said Davis.

Participants at last year's petanque tournament gather
for a group shot at the courts downtown.

Continued from 1B
*Why is the tournament
Q uch a success?
A. I see three main rea-
The proximity and con-
venience of Jacksonville air-
port. We send taxis to the air-
port and we know the players'
flight numbers up front, so in
many cases they can share
the cab fare. Once on the
island, everything'is almost in
walking distance.
The eclectic, quaint
atmosphere of downtown
Fernandina Beach.
The tremendous sup-
port we receive from the city
and from the people on the
island. Most players are com-
ing for the third time and are'
even staying longer because
they feel right at home.
. Isn't it unusual to have
Players of such different
ski 1 levels compete together?
A Definitely. In most
sports that would be
unheard of. Imagine playing
against Rafael Nadal or Venus
Williams in a tennis touirna-
ment! Even an advanced ten-
nis player would have a hard
time just returning the serve.
Thus, very frustrating for
both. But in petanque there
are always unexpected fac-
tors, because of the surface: a
stone here, or a rut there. So
yes, you will lose, but not nec-
essarily get skunked in min-
utes. Meanwhile, you get to
learn an awful lot.
In Marseille, in the South
of France, there's a huge
tournament every summer,
open to anyone. Over 13,000
players, in teams of three,
start on Saturday morning,
spread all over the city on
park walkways, parking lots,
streets, everywhere. But if
you lose, you're out. So by
luncl-ime, half the players
are done. By Sunday night, it
boils down to 500 players, and
so forth, down to the finals on
Of course, we cannot do
that in this case! How would
you like to be sent home on
Saturday morning, after fly-
ing'in from San Diego or
Philadelphia just the night
That's why we make sure
every team gets to play at
least five games on Saturday
and two on Sunday. The top
teams then move on the
finals, for everyone to watch
and enjoy.
Q .Where's the tourna-
ment held and is the
public welcome?
.On parking lot D, aka
A the boat trailer parking,
south of Atlantic Seafood. The
public is welcome any time, to
watch, enjoy the music, drink,
food and space permitting -
give the game a try for them-
selves. ,

Q .Where do the players
.come from, and who are
.Twenty-three states,
.with the majority from
California, the Northeast and
different parts of Florida,
from Santa Rosa in the pan-
handle to Coral Gables, plus
several teams from Canada

(they won last year) and also
Germany, Belgium, the
Netherlands, France, Great-
Britain and Israel. With the
USA, that makes eight flags!
Also attending are some folks
who now live here but grew
up in countries where
petanque is very popular, like
Morocco, Tunisia, Togo,
Madagascar and Vietnam.
It's an unbelievable mix of
people: a winemaker from
Sonoma, a manager at
Wendy's in Chicago, a cardiol-
ogist from San Antonio, a fire
captain, from Arizona, an *
antique dealer from Maine,
the Maitre d' of the French
Consulate in New York, a
coroner from Ohio, a space
engineer from Alabama ...
and several renowned chefs,
like Jean Banchet and Michel
Nischan. I could go on and
on. The point being that they
would have never met if it
wasn't for p6tanque, and now
get together once a year to
play (and party!) together.
And I'm very proud of the
fact that 28 players from the
Amelia Island Boules Club,
founded only last year, will
defend our Amelia Island col-
Q What's with the funny
A P6tanque is basically a
:.street game and
requires no specific gear. But
for the public to easily identi-
fy the teams, we ask the play-
ers of each team to dress sim-
ilarly. Some become very
creative and so now we give a
prize for the most original
"uniform." Last year it went to
Bo and Josh from the brand
new p6tanque club in
Zanesfield, Ohio -who
arrived in Amish attire. Who
knows what surprises will
appear this time.

up until the day he died. His
death date was Nov. 19 and
our concerts will fall on either
side of that date. Although in
a sense thematically associat-
ed with this date, the works
on the concert program are
neither sad nor funereal.
Schubert had a very sad
life. In order to make ends
meet he was forced to teach,
which he absolutely hated. He
was unable to hold down a
"regular" job and depended
on friends for his livelihood.
At one point in his life, he
wished to marry a young
soprano but due to the strin-
gent marriage laws of Vienna
that required you to show that
you could support a family, he
was not allowed to do so.
He made the following
comment regarding his work

ethic, "I compose every morn-
ing, and when one piece is
done, I begin another."
Schubert composed over 600
lieder for which he is consid-
ered the master and origina-
tor of the form. He also is
credited with composing nine
symphonies, six masses and
other liturgical pieces, inci-
dental theater music and
much chamber and piano
music. His cataloguer, Otto
Erich Deutsch, has assigned
990 numbers to Schubert's
catalog. This is an incredible
number of works for someone
who lived such a short life. As
in the case of Mozart, one
might be tempted to surmise
that they knew their life would
be short and there was no
time to waste.
Schubert studied with
Antonio Salieri, the one who is
unfairly and unjustly accused
of giving Mozart the poisoned

wine. Ludwig Van Beethoven,
another Viennese contempo-
rary, was most impressed
with Schubert and averred,
'Truly, in Schubert there is a
divine spark." He is heralded
for his incredible gift of
melody. Like Mozart, he
enjoyed little appreciation of
his music during his lifetime,
but was championed by the
Romantics who followed him.
The first half of the pro-
gram will feature two very
diverse works by Schubert.
The first is the Deutsche
Messe, or German Mass, a
collection of texts of the litur-
gy written and commissioned
by Professor J.P Neumann of
the Polytechnic School of
Vienna. It is one of Schubert's
last sacred works, composed
in the fall of 1827. Though the
pieces are strophic and simple
in design, the music is lyrical
and melodic and will be

accompanied by piano, oboes
and cello.
"Trout as You Like It" is
the other work on the first
half of the program. Lisa
Flick, soprano, will sing the
Schubert lied, Die Forelle
(The Trout) and then the 10
humorous variations on the
theme will be sung by
Chamber Singers. It is a
delightful, lighthearted
approach to the well-known
theme. It is unaccompanied.
Chamber Music Festival-
goers will recall hearing "The
Trout Quintet" performed by
Andre Watt several years ago.
The fourth movement of the
quintet is a set of variations on
the song theme. I'll throw in
just a bit of trivia here: this
work employed the bass for
first time in a chamber music
After intermission, the
singers will perform the Mass

in C, Op. 48, D. 452. It is
Schubert's fourth mass and
includes a solo quartet.
Quartet members are Diana
Twiggs, soprano; Brenda
Kayne, alto: Hansford Joiner,
tenor; and Scott Tinman, bass.
'The work will be accompanied
by piano, oboes, trumpet, tim-
pani nId bass. Schubert
wrote this mass in 1816. A
month before his death in
1828, he wrote a second
choral. "Benedictus," which
we will sing. The original one
was scored for soprano solo.
There doe isn't seem to be an
answer as to why he did this,
but it is listed separately by
I )eutsch as I). 961. Schubert
masses wer(e not allowed to be
sung in church because he
did not adhere to the text as
written. He never used the -
words "I believe in one
Catholic and Apostolic
Church" in any of his masses,

thereby negating the possibili-
ty of one of them being used
in a liturgical service.
I first came in contact with
Schubert as a young pianist
when my teacher assigned me
one of his impromptus. It was
love at first sight and those
early feelings have never dis-
sipated. Schubert's music
touches me in a special way
and it is my hope that you will
go away from this concert
with a new appreciation for
this gifted composer. It is
truly a blessing that the quali-
ty of his life never seemed to
affect that of his music.

Chamber Singers. She holds a
