Fernandina Beach Commissioner
Charles Corbett asked to have the cost
of a new or expanded Fernandina
Beach library put on the Noveimber
ballotxfor a citizen referendum, but
that was rejected on a 3-2 vote.
Although Commissioner Sarah
Pelican voted in favor of his proposal
at their May 15 meeting, the other
three commissioners Mayor Arlene
Filkoff, Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch and
Commissioner Tim Poynter shot it
Corbett has said at previous meet-
ings he was concerned about the costs
of a waterfront property the city has
been considering purchasing, and that
there may not be enough money left
for a new library. If the property north
9f the city marina is purchased, the
marina could be moved north to deep
waters and forego the expense of reg-
ular dredging.
"We have $1.8 million that we bor-
rowed," Corbett said. "We still haven't
determined about the waterfront prop-
erty. The library will cost $1.6 million."
Corbett made a motion to put the cost
of the library to a public vote, which
was seconded by Pelican.
Bunch noted the city's share of the
cost for the library was $600,000,
which has already been set aside as
part of the Forward Fernandina loan
of $1.8 million: The county also com-

City commissioners voted 3-2 at
their May 15 meeting to approve a
written document outlining rules of
order for their meetings.
Commissioners Charles Corbett and
Sarah Pelican voted against.
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, who wrote the rules of proce-
,dure based on a recent commission
workshop, this is the first time rules of
order for city commissioners have
been set down on paper.
Bach said commissioners general-
ly follow Robert's Rules of Order as a
basic framework, with a few special
rules that are now written down to
avoid confusion. ,
"This is just an abridged version of
Robert's Rules that we're doing our
way," Bach said. "It's all stuff (city
commissioners) have been doing any-
way, but it's never been written down
One recent change that was made
to procedure rules is that items must
be added to a meeting agenda at least
30 hours before any scheduled meet-
ing. Another change is that citizens
who want to make three-minute com-
ments may fill out a comment form
throughout the meeting, rather than
submitting'forms at the beginning of
the meeting. This allows for improptu
comments, but also provides a writ-
ten name and address of anyone who
speaks, for the record.
Corbett complained during the dis-
cussion on procedure that the new

Towers of mulch lie in the background of Discount Plants, a new business in the parking lot at the
Villages of Amelia shopping center on AIA in Yulee.

'Flea market irks businesses

Mike Zaffaroni likes to play by
the rules.
In February, when he wanted to
move his business, Fernandina
Mulch & Stone, from its old loca-
tion to an adjacent property on AlA,
he sought the guidance of Nassau
County officials.
They told him he would need to
add a building to the property along
with a new septic tank, a drain field,
a utility pule, plumbing. electricity,
and handic:_pip,-d I.mi king spaces -
and the appropriate permits to boot.
Even so, Zaffaroni says the ordeal,
which cost him roughly three
months and tens of thousands of dol-
lars, was worth it. *
"I am happy we were able to work

with our government to expand our
business by getting the necessary
permits, passing the appropriate
inspections and getting permission -
rather than asking forgiveness," he
said during a phone interview,
It's his strict adherence to coun-
ty laws that made May 2, and every
day since then, so frustrating for
Zaffaroni and others in the land-
scaping business.
On that day, a tent popped up in
the parking lot at the Villages of
Amelia shopping center, which is
owned by Sleiman Enterprises, locat-
ed on AlAatChester R',oLa inYulee.,
With it came a slew of mulch
palettes, plants, tiki torches and other
garden supplies. While all of the mer-

renting the space, and gave them 24
hours' notice to get the required per-

county records. ,

That's the spirit the Florida Bar
Association has hoped to spread by
dubbing May "Civility Month," an ini-
tiative that has attracted support from
hundreds of city and county govern-
ments statewide, said Marion Radson,
city attorney for Gainesville. Radson
said the association sent out procla-
mations to local governments through-
out the state to push the initiative.
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
approved it, and the Nassau County
Commission adopted the proclama-
tion at its meeting May 14. At the time,
the measure drew laughter from
Commission Chair Stacy Johnson, who
asked if it had been written by lawyers.
Orie nod from County Attorney David
Hallman confirmed her suspicions.
Radson, who is a member and past
chair of the City, County and Local
Government Law section of the Florida
Bar, said Civility Month aims to pro-
mote greater, participation in local gov-
ernment by discouraging behaviors
deemed uncivil by his cohorts.

"Tow to Go'a free ride home

AAA and Budweiser will help protect road-
ways during the Memorial Day weekend with
the Tow to Go program. Tow to Go call vol-
ume increased more than 75 percent in 2011
compared to 2010 from intoxicated drivers in
need of a safe ride home during the Memorial
Day Weekend.
"Each summer, Memorial Day call volume
increases and we hope it is because people are
making good choices and deciding not to get
behind the wheel when they have had too much
drink," said Joanna Newton, AAA spokesperson
for Tow to Go, The Auto Club Group.
"Ideally people will choose a designated
driver before they go out to socialize, but if
they don't, programs like these exist to give

them another chance to make the right decision
and hand over their keys."
Tow to Go provides a confidential ride and
tow home from any bar or restaurant free of
charge to anyone who may have had too
much to drink by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP
(4357). Services are offered throughout Floridia,
Georgia and West and Middle Tennessee.
Tow to Go is a free public service offered by
AAA and Budweiser that is funded through
donations to the Auto Club South Traffic Safety
The program is designed to be used as a last
resort and is offered based on availability of
AAA Service Technicians and tow trucks dur-
ing times of high call volume.

speaking with County Attorney
David Hallman on May 2 and
Herzberg on May 3. In fact,
King said, Herzberg came in
and filled out the application
and then Bingham came into
his office May 4 to physically
sign the permit. Under county
law, Bingham's sales are per-
mitted to continue for 30 days
from their start. So he will be
allowed to sell his wares
through June 1.
During a phone interview
May 10, King said, "It was dif-
ficult to say the plants weren't
seasonal at first blush."
But in a May 2 email from
King to Hallman, he told the
attorney the sales were "defi-
nitely not seasonal." Hallman,
who recalled speaking with
Herzberg and King but could
not remember whether it was
before or after the decision, said
it was King's call to make.
"I didn't tell Peter to issue or
deny that permit," he said.
"That said, I will support Peter's
decision so long as the activities
at the site don't go beyond what
was authorized." ,
King said he was swayed by
Herzberg's argument that the
county had no definition of sea-
sonal on which to base the deci-
sion. King and Herzberg both
,previously worked as planners
for the city. of Jacksonville in
different departments.
Under the law, businesses
must apply for the permit 90
days in advance of the actual
sales. King said 90 days is "so
far out" that ",traditionally we've
been flexible with people on the

added' referring to Bingham.
King's decision to grant the
permit to Bingham, and by
extension his landlord, in an
expedited fashion irked.
Zaffaroni and the Lopers, who
sell outdoor goods, because
spring and summer are their
peak sales periods.
Zaffaroni, who described his
past interactions with county
staff and King as "excellent"
and "helpful," said he has no
issue with the county being flex-
ible, from time to time.
"I don't have any problem
with exceptions being made to
rules,". Zaffaroni said. "...
However, I would hope that
exceptions made to rules ben-

efit all parties involved. -...The
exception, in this case, is to the
detriment of local businesses."
"This is the first time. I've
ever given someone a permit
as they're moving their stuff
onto the site and tlat's just
because Mr. Herzberg. put me
in a bad position of potentially
hurting a third party,"' said
King.'And that's why I did it,.to
avoid hurting the third party.
... This guy was going to end up
being fined or being charged
with a crime, bythe sheriff's
office," because the law says
it's a misdemeanor crime to vio-
late the terms of the outdoor
sales ordinance.
Meanwhile, Herzberg has,

'I would hope that exceptionsimade to rules
benefit all parties involved. The exception,
in this case, is to the detriment
of local businesses'

defended the sales and his role
in facilitating them. He said
.May 14 that the county, or King,
never told his employers or
Bingham that such sales were
not allowed without a permit.
King rejected that sugges-
tion outright.
"They can't claim that they
weren't told when they didn't
ask," King said. "Then they
requested a piece of paper to
legitimize it so they don't get'
busted by the police."
Herzberg also pointed out
that Bingham is a member of
the chamber of commerce and
contributes to the local econo-
my in food and gas costs and
other money spent within the
He noted in a May 15 email
that a comparable site in
Jacksonville generated more
than $30,000 in sales taxes dur-
ing March and April.
"I would hope that Nassau
County also would like to col-
lect such taxes from a willing
taxpayer," he added.
He also noted Bingham
hired a local person to work for
him. "The position is a part-
time position, but it is typical
for this vendor to hire
for such operations," said
Herzberg. "Being that this is
somewhat late season and as,
he is still unclear as to how long
he can stay he cannot hire too
fhany people."
Despite the permit, such
outdoor sales do not comply
with county laws, said King.
The permit only allows the out-

door sale of plants, he said.
"I gave them'a permit for
seasonal plants," King said. "Of
course I wasn't expecting them
to put out chairs and tiki torch-
es and whatnot. And they're
also supposed to be 50 feet
away from the right of way.
...They're not currently."
King said in an e-mail
Wednesday that code enforce-
ment officials had approached
Bingham in reference to the
placement. f his plants and told
him he needed to move them
back 50 feet from the right-of-
way. Code enforcement told
him Tuesday that Bingham is
now in compliance with the
right-of-way, King said.
Zaffaroni and the Lopers,
among others, addressed coun-
ty commissioners at-a board
meeting May. 14, but commis-
sioners were mum on the subl
ject standing behind King's

meaning of fusion cooking. The
schnitzel was the house-spe-

the best pork tenderloin I have
had in a long time. I gave Andy
a hard time when he ordered
rice as his side dish and teased
him about his "international"

appropriate German potatoes.

quickly I figured it was close
to the cook's bedtime and she
wanted to leave soon. I asked
what the unidentified fried
objects nestled next to my
schnitzel were, and the waitress
looked at me as if I had just driv-
en in from Mars. "Uh, that's
fried okra, ma'am." I suppressed
a giggle. Schnitzel and okra?
Maybe the cook was from
southern Germany. My "Ger-

merely southern fried, and I dis-
covered the puddle of red sauce
the schnitzel rested on was a
pretty decent marinara sauce.
I gave up and ordered anoth-

okra, which I don't care for, and
dragged my schnitzel through
the marinara. Yum, I think. I
hope our restaurateurs take
note of this extreme example
of fusion cooking so they can
think about adding this meal to
their repertoires.

will offer okra with any dish,

have another tale or two to tell.

Radson, who has lectured
on the topic, agreed.
"It's OK to criticize, but let's
be civil," he said. "Let's not be
intimidating to someone who
may express a view that's dif-
ferent from everyone else's."
Although civility may be
commemorated in May, Radson
said, it should be practiced year
round. He said the initiative
stemmed from past discussions
with colleagues who saw the
quality of their public meetings
diminishing due to a lack of
civility. The association's efforts
were inspired by The Civility
Initiative led by Johns Hopkins
University professor Dr. P.M.
Forni, said Hallman.
Forni, an Italian national, has
lectured and authored many
books on the subject, including
perhaps his most well-known
work, Choosing Civility: The
Twenty-Five Rules of Considerate
Conduct, published in 2002.
Multiple attempts to reach him
were not successful.
"We thought we could create
greater public discourse by
making them more inviting and
less intimidating to the general
public and officials elected and
appointed," said Radson.
I Radson said as tendencies
toward personal attacks and
other uncivil behaviors have
increased, people the public
and government officials alike -

It's OK to criticize,
but let's be civil.'

have felt discouraged from
expressing views that differ
from the majority.
Asked what might form an
attack, Hallman said an example
might be when a resident
chooses to sling criticism at a
person's character rather than
.their stance on an issue.
"When the conversation is
about one another instead of
about the content of one's pub-
lic policy decisions," he added,.
"that's an attack."
Radson said uncivil behav-
ior could range from personal
attacks on an individual to a
speaker refusing to surrender
the podium after his time limit
has passed.
"It's being unduly harsh to a
person or persons or groups
who may have expressed an
opinion on the matter to the
point they feel intimidated," he
Radson said the association
has received good feedback
from cities and counties that
have adopted the measure. He
and other members of his sec-

tion have spent roughly $2,000
per year promoting the ideals.
This on top of the initial costs
for brass plaques inscribed with
reminders encouraging civil dis-
course, he said.
The plaques feature the
above quote from President
Lincoln, along with the follow-
ing: "We will be respectful of
one another even when we dis-
agree. We will direct all com-
ments to the issues. We will
avoid all personal attacks."
Radson said the Florida
Supreme Court recently amend-
ed the oath lawyers take prior to
their admission to the bar to
include civility.
"To opposing parties and
their counsel, I pledge fairness,
integrity and civility, not only in
court, but in all written and ver-
bal communications," he cited
from the text.
Radson, who is also presi-
dent-elect of the Florida Muni-
cipal Attorneys Association and
Florida's chair of the Inter-
national Municipal Lawyers
Association, said the movement
does not. have to stop with
"I see no reason not to
expand it ... because other goy
ernments -have experienced,

FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2012 OPINION News-Leader

Down to the sea in ta

I was doing some work on my sailboat earli-
er this week when a guy who was doing
some fiberglass work pointed toward the
Amelia River and said, "Hey, check out the
I looked up just in time to catch a glimpse
of a magnificent tall ship drifting by, and then
it was hidden from view. I hopped in my car
and caught up with her as she was nearing her
port of call at Fernandina Harbor Marina.
The sailor in my blood didn't want to miss a
moment of her arrival. I ventured down on the
pier and got as close as I dared without getting
in the way while docking preparations were
made. Soon, deck hands aboard the tall ship
were tossing lines to crew on the dock and
within a few efficient minutes, she was made
fast. .
There are sailboats and there are sailboats
and then there's Peacemaker, a stately, three-
masted tall ship out of Georgia. There are
other large, impressive sailboats and motor
yachts at the marina but Peacemaker dwarfs
them all, towering a hundred feet over the har-
bor and making the other vessels around her
look like humble servants of the king.
Azurah Clinton, the wife of Peacemaker's
captain, was also at dockside awaiting the
ship's arrival and I struck up a conversation
with her, quickly learning that as soon as the
Coast Guard did its inspection and everything
was in official order, Peacemaker would be
open for free tours to the public. If she had
told me they'd be giving away hundred-dollar
bills, I wouldn't have been more excited.
Azurah told me the tours would begin.

Tuesday. I had some busi-
ness to attend in Jacksonville
V ^ on Tuesday and all I could
think about was getting
home and getting a tour of
that ship.
I found Azurah reading
and drinking a glass of water
gin the main salon when I
arrived. We chatted for a few
CUP OF minutes and she filled me in
JOE with a bit of history.
Peacemaker was built on a
riverbank in Brazil by an
Joe Palmer Italian family of boat builders
using traditional methods
and ii-onwood. The owner is said to have pur-
chased a forest of ironwood trees so he could
hand select those he wanted, in some cases,
using only one side of the tree for the wood's
' The' keel was laid down in 1986 and, in
1989, Frank Walker, the boat's designer and
owner christened her Avany in honor of his
wife, launched it and motored the brand new
ship to Savannah, Ga., where he intended to
rig her as a three-mastedstay sail Marconi
rigged schooner. The long-range plan was to
use her for charters.
But for some reason, the work never got
done and there this grand dame sat until she
was bought by the faith community known as
The Twelve Tribes of Israel. The Twelve
Tribes-cleaned her up and outfitted her as the,
barquentine Peacemaker she is today. The
religious group, which grew out of the Jesus

movement in the early 1970s, uses the vessel
as an apprenticeship program for its youth in
seamanship, navigation, sailing and boat main-
Peacemaker also has a Coast Guard attrac-
tion vessel permit and is available for festivals
and dockside events. She makes regular along
the eastern seaboard and into the Gulf of
Peacemaker is 150 feet long and displaces
400 tons. She's 33-feet abeam and has a draft
of 14 feet. Carrying 10,000 feet of sail, her hull
speed is 14 knots. Crewmembers tell me they
once had her up to 11 knots in a 20 to 25 knot
The interior of the vessel is appointed from
stem to stern in rich mahogany.
The captain; Larry Clinton, who goes by
the biblical name Anak, told me that coming
through the Gulf of Mexico on a trip, they ran
into a microburst storm. Although the ship
wasn't completely "knocked down," as sailors
say, she tooka 50-degree port and had
seawater sloshing the rails. Needless to say,
the crew must be pretty impervious to seasick-
Like his wife, Anak is a merry character
and happily gave me a blue-plate special tour
of the ship. Our tour ended back in the salon,
'where Azura bought me a freshly made cup of
iced herbal tea. I bought a ship's mug form
Peacemaker will be here until Tuesday and
is open' for tours from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m.
I'll be taking another tour.


Poyntermakes a point
Thank you City Commissioner
Tim Poyniter for being the only one
to question the salary of newly
appointed City Manager Joe Gerrity.
All we have been hearing from the
commissioners for the last three
months throughout the hiring pro-
cess is how this is a "buyer's market".
and how the city manager should
not be paid as much as the last city
manager. I did not agree with that
when it was discussed because I
feel this position requires a skilled
individual with experience. How-
ever, we hired 'someone with 18
months of actual government man-
agement experience, a bachelor's
degree (not a master's degree like
recommended ICMA candidates)
and we are paying him $103,000
because that's what he said he wanit-
ed? Why was this not negotiated? I
sure hope this is not how we nego-
tiate our contracts with vendors by
taking the first number they throw
out! I thought Commissioners
iPelican and Corbett were taking
Fernandina back? A quote from
Pelican's own campaign platform:
"Residents are being used as
cash cows during one of the worst
economic downturns this country
has ever experienced. Rather than
addressing legitimate concerns and
tightening their belts, the current
commission and city manager con-
tinue spending as if they have hit
the lottery. Franchise fees are not
the lottery and residents should
have been given a voice via refer-
endum vote on the $6 million bond
issue... It's time for some common
sense and fiscal discipline to pre-
vail." (News-Leader, Oct. 6, 2011)
What about accepting Gerrity's
first offer is fiscally responsible to
the citizens? Sarah, I,m starting to
.feel like a "cash cow" myself
between the severance package for
the former city manager, the rigged
search for a new city manager, pay-
ing Dave Lott and Joe Gerrity at the
same time and paying Gerrity six
figures. When are you going to start
looking out for us as ,promised?.
And what about you, Charlie?
You promised to be "our watchdog,
not a lap dog," (News-Leader's very
own opinion piece supporting both
. Pelican and Corbett, Nov. 3, 2011).
You went for a six-figure salary too?
You are a "watchdog" alright -
watching out for your own cronies.
Yes, I agree with you both that
the city manager should make more
than a department head. But should-
n't the city manager have more expe-
rience than a department head, or at
least more than 18 months govern-
ment management experience?,
The majority of the department
head salaries listed in the (May 18)
newspaper have years of service
that merit the kind of salary they're
receiving. Furthermore, many of
them have master's degrees in
their field. Typically, higher pay is
tied directly to experience and
education, not just someone's job
Mr. (Vice Mayor Jeffrey) Bunch
and Mrs. (Mayor Arlene) Filkoff, I
am also disappointed in you both
for not negotiating Mr. Gerrity's pay.
I hold a master's degree myself, and
while it may not be in business, it
does. not take a business genius to
negotiate with a candidate and
save a few thousand dollars. As we
move forward trying to balance a
budget, we are going to need every

Small Business Week
The Small Business Develop-
ment Center at the University of
North Florida reports that, accord-
ing to the most recent statistics from
the U.S. Census County Business
Patterns, 91 percent of businesses in
Nassau County have less than 20

employees and 65 percent of busi-
nesses have less than 5 employees.
Those figures don't include busi-
nesses with no paid employees. That
group adds another 4,700-plus small
businesses that contribute to the
county's tax base.
As these statistics show, small
businesses are vitally important to
our local economy.
But the value of our small busi-
ness goes far beyond dollars and
cents. Think of the one-of-a-kind,
nowhere-else businesses here that
-help create the unique character of
our community. The vast majority of
our small business owners and their
employees live and raise their fam-
ilies here. And the support of local
small businesses is the lifeblood for
many local nonprofits including
schools, churches and youth sports

For shame
Why does the richest, largest,
most powerful corporation in the
world sell "knock-off' Shrimp

In August 2011, my husband and
I and our three children moved from
Fernandina Beach to North Caro-
lina. My husband was the Minister
to Students at First Baptist Church
on Eighth Street for 5 1/2 years.
Shortly after we began our ministry
there, our oldest son Jacob Started
going to RA's. One of the leaders
was Dr. Henry Rodeffer. Henry has
three sons of his own, and he just
had a way with these boys.
In my son's class there were
many hurts. There Were boys with
physical disabilities, and there were
boys with emotional pains. There
were boys who had lost their par-
ents, and boys whose parents could-
n't be there for them. Jacob was the
new kid, who had left all his friends
behind. He literally knew nobody.
Henry took that group ofboys, with
all their baggage and all their ener-
gy, and loved them. He taught them
about the love of Jesus Christ, and
he showed them His love by loving
them. As the Minister to Students,
my husband Charlie recognized the
impact Henry was having on those
boys, so he asked Henry to teach a
Sunday school class of sixth grade

boys. Henry gladly accepted.
When Jacob started sixth grade
Henry was now his Sunday school
teacher. Over the past three years,
Henry has poured his life into those
boys. He was there when one of the
boy's mother passed away,.and he
was there to cheer when another
boy with spina bifida was able to
walk without help. Over the years,
he continued to lead RA's, and teach
Sunday school. Not to mention the
medical mission trips to Honduras,
the shooting range with sixth-grade
guys, basketball games and paint-
ball. Each year when we would take
our student ministry to camp, we
knew we could count on one ques-
tion from the camp director, "Is
Henry coming?" Henry would come
to camp and take care of everyone.
* From sick, exhausted camp coun-
selors to boo-boos that needed
Bandaids, to using his own money to
buy a nebulizer for an asthmatic boy,
to getting epinephrine to a kid with
a bee sting.
In April of this year, my father,
who lives in Edgewater, called me.
My uncle, who lives with him, was
very sick and in the hospital. For
the next month and a half, he was in
and out of the hospital. Each time he
was sent home with no real answers..
. He had lost a lot of weight, and the
fear was that he was dying before
our eyes. Last week he went back to
the hospital. I decided to call Dr.
Henry, to just kind of pick his brain.
Even though he was on call, and
had nothing to gain by talking to
me, he took the time to listen. Then
he asked me to have my dad or
uncle call him on his cell phone.
Last night my father called Henry,
and while Henry was sitting with
his mother, he spent time talking to
my dad. I'm not sure what was said,
but I do know what happened-next.
When they hung up the phone,.my
father called my uncle, ald told him
about the conversation. My uncle
now has hope. When my father
talked to me next, his entire deme-
anor was different. Before talking to
Henry, I could hear the unbeliev-
able amount of stress he was under.
He was not getting any answers or
any hope. Then God sent Henry.
Henry gave my dad and my
uncle hope. Henry gave him help
when others wouldn't. Henry saw a
need and he met it. Henry gave
when there was nothing in it for
him. There are men, there are
heroes and then there are heroes
that go way beyond. They give
more, listen harder and care longer.
Those kind of people are super-
heroes, and that's exactly the kind
of man Dr. Henry Rodeffer is.

FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2012/News-Leader


Shoes, toilet paper and measuring up

My wife rolled her eyes, and
shook her head. Her little brother's
desperation had moved him to
action. The question was, would his
plan work? As he carefully folded toi-
let paper and pushed it into his
shoes, his hope of measuring up
grew. If nothing else, Joane
McGuire, the girl he had invited to
the dance, would see more than just
the top of his head.
In so many ways, my brother-in-
law Peter has always been a step
ahead of his peers. Unfortunately,
while growing up, his physical
stature was late in coming. That, cou-
pled with the fact that Peter had
skipped a few grades due to a very
sharp mind, won him the prestigious
title of being one of the shortest kids
on campus.


Rob Goyette

Now don't ask
me why, Peter, with
all'his smarts,
asked Joane
McGuire, with all
her height, to be
his date at the
dance but he did. I
suppose when she
said yes, the reality
of what that would
look like sunk in. It-
was then that his
sharp mind went to
work trying to level
things out
Fortunately, he

. had seen an innovative ad in a maga-
zine that inspired him to try a similar
idea on his own. "Add inches to your
overall height," the ad had boasted.

For Peter, the simple shoe insert
could easily be duplicated with some
toilet paper, tape and a little common
sense, not to mention save him a few
important dollars for the dance.
Though his version only yielded
about a half inch of height, it was just
enough to give him the confidence
he needed to brave the dance floor
and prove himself worthy among his
peers. I'm sure that no one even
noticed the change in height except
his sister and'perhaps his mom, who
no doubt were having to keep their
comments to themselves. For Peter,
none of that mattered. His little
secret served him well on more than
one occasion.
Though such stories make me
chuckle, I can't laugh too hard with-
out thinking about myself. I suppose

the desire to measure up in order to
fit in is an issue that affects us all.
While such a desire is often pervert-
ed by trying to measure ourselves
among ourselves, which the Bible
says is not wise (2 Corinthians
10:12), the longing to measure up, in
and of itself, is not a bad thing.
According to Ephesians chapter
four and verse 13, it's always been
God's desire for us to grow up and
reach the same measure and stature
as that of Jesus Christ. While we'll
never be God, like the Bible
declares Him to be, us becoming
like Jesus is certainly a part of God's
eternal plan. I know that idea leaves
us all feeling a bit short, but
nonetheless, God is committed to
seeing it happen.. I
While it's clear, us measuring up

to the same stature as that of Jesus
Christ is something that only God
Himself can pull off, it's also clear
that such depth of character, miracu-'
lous power and unfailing love are
obtainable to all who believe. If it
weren't so then God would not have
said it.
"Until we all come in the unity of
the faith, and of the knowledge of the
Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto
the measure of the stature of the full-
ness of Christ." (Ephesians 4:13)
"For whom He did foreknow, He
also did predestinate to be con-
formed to the image of His Son, that
He might be the firstborn among
many brethren." (Romans 8:29)
