Sheriff gets $939K for Animal Control


The county commission voted
for Sheriff Tommy Seagraves for
Animal Control on Wednesday,
unanimously endorsing his plan to
take over administration of the shel-
ter for $939,000 a year as of April 1.
That is almost $400,000 more
than the current budget, and a
shock to at least one county official,
especially coming midway through
a difficult fiscal year.

Tm gasping for air.... It's got tax
increase written all over it unless some- , -
body pulls a fiscal rabbit out of the hat.' q _ .

"I'm gasping for air," said Clerk going to guarantee a future hit" for
of Court John Crawford. "As impor- taxpayers.
tant as the issue is - and it must be "It's got tax increase written all
solved - I'm very concerned ... that over it unless somebody pulls a fis-
over a $400,000 hit to the budget is cal rabbit out of the hat."

County Coordinator Ed
Sealover said the county can
"absorb a fair amount" of the fund-
ing due to savings elsewhere this
fiscal year. Interim Director Rhett
Holden-Dodge, for example, has
been working for a nominal salary
of $1,000 a month since Nov. 1, and
the shelter has not been fully
staffed for much of the last year.
For the long term, "Well prob-
ably have to scramble around" to
get the money, said Sealover.
Initially the county had counter-

proposed a budget of $680,000 for
Animal Control, based on figures
compiled by Holden-Dodge,
Sealover and county Finance
Director Ted Selby.
But Commissioner Barry
Holloway said Thursday, "I believe
we went in the right direction" and
followed the will of the people of
Nassau County by voting for
Seagraves' plan.
That will was made abundantly

"It is the year 2015. The Fernan-

Describe what it looks like, the
development that has occurred,
the economic activity and other
aspects that make this a great place

the city Community Development
Department put to residents at a

20 local residents attended the

Fernandina Beach.
The department held the EAR
session because of a statute that
requires the city to review and
update its comprehensive plan

every seven years. The workshop
was meant to help city staff identi-
fy some issues that are important
to the community.
For the above exercise, City
Planner Kelly Hanlon, acting as
moderator, asked the audience to

what they wanted the city to look
like in seven years by coming up
with some keywords.

Activists passionate about their candidates

For theNews-Leader

More than 28 million Democrats
and 15 million Republicans have
voted in national presidential pri-
mary elections this year. But the
Democratic contest may yet hinge
on the result in Florida - whether
delegates selected in a Jan. 29 elec-
tion are seated or whether there
will be a second vote-by-mail elec-
Nassau County Democrats may
get another say in whether Sen.
Hillary Clinton of New York or Sen.
Barack Obama of Illinois is the
Democratic nominee to face Sen.
John McCain, the presumptive
Republican nominee in the
November election.
A majority of Nassau County
registered voters are Republican.
In the Florida primary Jan. 29, Gov.
Mitt Romney received the most
local Republican votes, but McCain
won statewide and went on to win
Local Democrats preferred
Clinton to Obama and former U.S.
Sen. John Edwards. Those votes
don't count, however, because an
early voting date violated
Democratic Party rules. An effort
is under way to ensure the
Democratic voices of Michigan and

. T-shirts promoting Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama hang
in the window of a shop on 11th Street.

Florida are heard, either by seating
the delegates from the earlier elec-
tion or by holding a new primary
election for Democrats only.
The historic Democratic race
has captured the country's imagi-
nation with Obama leading in del-
egates by a small margin. This
year's campaign is all about
momentum, and based on the num-
bers, the Democrats have it now.

But there is still a long way to go
until November and issues that pro-
pelled Nassau County to vote in
January may be completely differ-
ent by summer's end. In a sampling
of party activists, these issues have
been varied and passionate.
"We realized that we could no
longer stand silent and not try to
reverse the (economic and social)
damage done by this president

(Bush)," said Bobbi Lum of
Fernandina Beach.
Southern California transplants
Bobbi and Loren Lum were among
a group of Nassau Democrats who
responded by phone and e-mail to
questions of why each voted for a
particular candidate in the primary.
The Lums were registered
Republicans but switched parties
after the election of the Bush admin-

istration. It was his reelection that
mobilized their active participation
in Democratic politics.
They voted for Obama in the
primary because Clinton, to them,
represents another four years of
polarized politics. They respect
Obama's opposition to the Iraq War,
but are not anti-military - their son
served two deployments in the
Persian Gulf.
"Clinton hasn't aroused the level
of excitement that Obama has -
she holds back," said Verna Bell,
vice chairman of the Nassau County
Democratic Executive Committee.
"But don't count her out She's a
brilliant woman."
In her precincts in and around
Fernandina and Yulee, Bell calls
inactive voters and finds they want
to hear about Obama. She said he
has inspired the African-American
vote, energized young new voters
and crossed racial and political bar-
riers with an eloquent message of
"My reason for voting for
Clinton in the Democratic primary
was essentially experience," said
Robert Weintraub of Marsh Lakes.
"The issues left behind by the
Bushies are so serious and com-
plex that someone experienced in

POLITICS Continued from 1A
political infighting and governing
will be needed to resolve them." He
said Obama lacks that experience.
"I had become very discouraged
by how the country was faring with
the war, the environment, health
care, education and our position in
the world," said Joan Cipriano of
Amelia Island, who has been active
in the Democratic Club of Amelia
Island. She had admired Obama for
several years and voted for him
because of his confident belief in
the future of the United States.
Phil Morton of Bryceville, pres-
ident of the Westside Democratic
Club, voted for John Edwards
because "he represents the com-
mon man, the disenfranchised and
has the best plan for universal
health." State Committeewoman
Linda Hicks Spencer of Hilliard also
voted for Edwards because "he was
a fighter for the little guy" on issues
of insurance, poverty and educa-
tion. Both are, for now, undecided
on their presidential candidate.
"Barack Obama is a very inter-
esting phenomenon. He has charis-
ma - it's not a charisma that moves
me - but I recognize that it moves
a great many people. But, we should
also be as wary of charisma as we
are charmed by it," said Peggy
Stanton, an Amelia Island resident
and past president of Nassau
Federated Republican Women.
"The issue of life is what keeps
a great number of people in the
Republican Party," she said. Stanton
was a Romney supporter and said
he was the "perfect candidate"
because of his conservatism, busi-
ness acumen and problem-solving
ability, but that in the end Romney
lacked the charisma to inspire the
Republican vote.
"It's very hard to be a Democrat
and be pro-life," Stanton said.
"There are several different
kinds of Republicans in Nassau,"
said Nancy Mager of Hilliard, active
in the Westside Republican Club.
She was a Romney supporter and
said many Republicans were sick
when he ended his campaign
"National security and illegal
immigration seem to be the biggest
topics of conversation amongst indi-
viduals I talk with," she said. "My
children want McCain because of
his stance on national security and

moted a huge push in evangelical
"The bottom line to all the talk is
that perhaps its time to have a third
majority party. Perhaps the con-
servatives will come up with some-
thing and a new movement will
begin," Mager said.
Regardless of the candidate, the
Republican platform is the motiva-
tion for voters like Stanton, Mager
and many Nassau County Republi-
cans. Romney, Huckabee and other
Republican candidates have thrown
their support behind McCain in an
effort to unite the party.
"I'll work hard at the grassroots
level doing everything I can to
prove to voters that electing the

Democratic candidate will hurt our
country immensely. By September,
this race will have completely
changed," Mager said.
By the time the political con-
ventions are over this summer, the
issues that compel Democrats,
Republicans and Independents to
cast their ballots for the country's
next president will likely have
changed. But what will not have
changed are the political passions
and emotions that have driven an
historic number of voters to the
polling booths this year.

icy and law, building infrastructure,
land development regulations, fund-
ing sources and benchmarks.
They intend to use the informa-
tion to fashion a framework, or
"organizing principle" around which
to design infrastructure solutions
that will be presented to the board
of county commissioners.
"We need to get a solution that
works," County Attorney David
Hallman said.
What will work, they conclud-
ed, are short, intermediate and long-
term goals for resolving the traffic
concurrency deficit.
Governments and landowners
have a "mutual interest in trying to
find a solution" to traffic concur-
rency problems, he said, and to "the
perverse, unintended conse-
quences," such as sprawl.
Traffic concurrency, theoreti-
cally, measures the capacity a road
has to accommodate the additional
traffic or "trips" a development will
Based on the current system,
existing capacity on A1A is inade-
quate to support any additional
development approvals, beyond
what is vested.
Alternatively, some non-vested
developments of the appropriate
size and scope can negotiate a pro-
portionate fair share agreement in
which they contribute funds or facil-
ities to compensate for the traffic
trips the development will consume.
But the situation leaves other
property owners unable to sell prop-
erty for development or to develop
property they own.
The resulting "de facto stop
growth," said Steve Rieck, director
of the Economic Development
Board in Nassau County, means he
can't attract companies to the coun-
ty, putting him "further behind the
curve in terms of me getting my

job done" which "is all about creat-
ing new jobs in Nassau County," he
Claire S. Poulsen, a homestead-
er on Clinch Drive, told the group
she lost a buyer and "a great deal of
money" for her six acres in part due
to lack of traffic concurrency.
"I'd like to sell my property. I'm
looking for a developer to come,"
she said. "It just seems like this
should have been done long ago."
"The commission has to have
those ideas in place," to solve the
problem, "regardless to who's in
office," Rieck said.
"As a taxpayer, I just see this get-
ting worse as we continue to miss
opportunities," Dennis Jasinsky
said. "If we go stagnant economi-
cally here the taxpayers will pick
up the bill."
Commercial property owners,
unable to develop their land, have
begun seeking tax relief through
chapter 193 of the Florida statutes,
Hallman said.
Owners can ask for a revalua-
tion for tax purposes of their prop-
erty "when the actions of govern-
ment result in adverse effects on
the use of their property," he said.
Jim Hardwick of Hardwick and
Co. paid $450,000 in property taxes
last year "and I can't do anything
with my property," he said.
"If billions of commercial rev-
enue comes off the tax rolls, the
taxpayers will bear the burden."
Hallman said. But the infrastruc-
ture issue transcends concurrency,
Phil Scanlan said. "We're actually
looking bigger than that," he said.
"Safety and traffic flow is a prob-
lem, not just concurrency," Scanlan
said. "I hope developers would like
to think of traffic flow and safety
... as part of the problem" because
they facilitate business.
Defining "the only problem as
concurrency stopping development,
that's just wrong," he said.

Infrasutcture summit
Nassau County staff will facilitate a public meeting on infrastruc-
ture from 9 a.m. to noon, Thursday, April 11, at the County Building,
86026 Pages Dairy Road, Yulee. Task groups will present reports on
the scope of the problem, changing the law, operational improve-
ments, policy and law, building infrastructure, land development reg-
ulations, funding sources and benchmarks.

We all need support

"Boys, has anyone seen my
bra?" I laughed to myself, realiz-
ing what was being spoken to
my three sons. Hmmm, I want
to make sure they get in touch
with their feminine side, but this
might be a bit much.
Typically I don't ask for help
in finding my undergarments,
but today started out with our
dog, Maggie, snatching up my
brassiere and running off with
it. The hoops and hollers that
came out of Noah and Caleb
were quite infectious, so in my
frustration I had to smile.
The second and third time it
happened, my patience began to
wear a bit thin with the doggy
sister of theirs.
In my family line, women
wear their brassieres almost all
the time. We do not walk around
hanging free. It has something
to do with gravity and DNA. My
sister Susie and I have dis-
cussed that we don't ever

of being "perky" in the chest

options, I give myself a breast

why they point downward or in

know they'll ask if given a

We were hanging out one
Saturday morning, and the only

and the whole community benefits."

Rick Keffer, Femandina Beach

Rick Keffer knows Baptist Nassau inside and out - as a grateful patient several
years ago, and now, as a member of the Board of Directors. "People often take
a community hospital for granted," he says. "I used to, but not any more.
With a state-of-the-art new building, more physicians will want to practice
in our community."

The new two-story building will have a larger intensive care unit and comfortable,
family-friendly, all-private patient rooms. Outstanding care and compassion r
will remain our highest priority, as evidenced by Baptist Nassau's recent
recognition as a Magnetm hospital, the highest possible accolade for excellence
in patient care.

The new building is a huge investment in our community and needs
community support. To learn how you can help, call Trish Dooley, Director

'Election 2008: charisma or fear?

Apparently charisma can't cut it at 3 a.m. in
the morning.
There is evidence that Hillary Clinton
delivered a wounding blow to Barack
Obama when she repeatedly raised the question just
before the Texas and Ohio primaries as to which
presidential candidate was prepared to handle an
emergency call during the middle of the night - a
crowd-rousing orator or an experienced crisis man-
ager? It may have been what ended Sen. Obama's 11-
primary winning streak.
Leaving the question aside as to her own crisis
management experience, Hillary has made America
think about a legitimate issue - the value or danger
of charisma. It is apparently an issue of growing con-
cern. We are beginning to focus on the fact that
many a politician has skated to election on the
wheels of emotional infatuation fueled by an electric
The word "charisma" entered American politics
when a relatively unknown Massachusetts senator,
short on experience and long on charm, defeated a
vice president who reversed that equation. Part of
the legend of the famous first presidential debate is
that those who listened to the exchange on radio
judged Richard Nixon the winner and those who
watched it on television gave the nod to Jack
Kennedy, the latter being tanned and well teethed;
the former, gaunt, grim and pale from a recent hospi-
tal stay.
One would have thought another Massachusetts

politician, equally handsome,
equally rich, equally charming,
would have claimed the charis-
ma mantle. But in 2008, Mitt
Romney, who seemed to have
all the ingredients, did not con-
' nect as well with the electorate
as his New England predeces-
sor. According to a Washington
Post analysis, Romney was "too
1 � perfect" in an increasingly
Peggy imperfect society. We're a
"messier people," thus we want
Stanton a messier candidate. So much
--***- for a leader we can admire.
Apparently we would rather
LIFE... "relate."
THE WAY So how do you define
MVE ARE "charisma"? According to the
dictionary, the number one defi-
nition is "a rare quality or power attributed to those
persons who have demonstrated an exceptional abili-
ty for leadership."
Leadership for what is the key question; good or
evil? The dictionary does not delineate. Throughout
history, charismatic leaders have created eras of
advancement or wrought chaos and destruction.
Those in the former category include Franklin
Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Nelson Mandela, John Paul II, Billy Graham. Clearly,
the all-time charismatic personality was Jesus Christ.

No carpenter since has led a movement containing
billions of followers 2000 years after his death. A
homilist recently startled his congregation by sug-
gesting Jesus was a "kind of politician." "After all,
Jesus was trying to draw people," he said, going
even further to say that Jesus should be a "role
model" for all politicians.
Unfortunately he has not been. Demanding
dictators have also demonstrated commanding
charisma; Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Fidel
Castro come to mind. Great crowds attended and
cheered their speeches and obediently adhered to
their dogmas.
For that reason, when huge adoring crowds fill
halls and arenas to hear a presidential candidate it
makes some people nervous. There is a certain
mindless quality to such adulation that many find
frightening, particularly when they look back in his-
tory". He or she scares me," is a sentiment heard
more often lately. The "fright factor" is contesting
charisma in voters' mental video games.
So at the end of the day, will Americans choose
not the leader who inspires them the most, but the
one they fear the least?
Peggy Stanton lives on Amelia Island, where she
continues her career as a writer, an artist, a mother
and grandmother. A former ABC news correspondent
in Washington, D.C., and wife of the late U.S.
Congressman Bill Stanton, she is a former chair of
Nassau Federated Republican Women. She co-founded
the Place of Peace Festival on the island.

Wishful thinking
It's hard to tell what commissioners might mean by
vision. The Vision 2032 meetings sound much like
the Vision 2000 meeting years ago. I was warned then
that it was only a political stunt and nothing would
come of it. I don't think anything did. What a waste.
When I look at Nassau County, I see several visions.
I sometimes see the county as it is now. I sometimes
see it as I think it will become. East Nassau will be like
Jax Beach and West Nassau like West Duval, a col-
lection of tract houses where you have to check house
numbers to tell one from another. This isn't the way I
want it, but given past history that is the way it will
probably turn out.
I see little evidence of planning or coordination of
anything. As with any system that relies too heavily on
the wisdom of private enterprise, everyone does what
seems good for him or her at the moment. What is
good for them is to make the most profit, fastest, with
the least cost or risk, and with little or no regard for
overall impact. Everyone just seems to close their
eyes, sticks their fingers in their ears, wishes as hard
as they can toward their bank or equivalent religious
institution, hums loudly and hopes things work out.
They think that because that is the way they have
always done things that it is the best they can do.
This isn't leadership, it's wishful thinking.
Sometimes I think of the Nassau County that could
be, with only a few changes, and�t makes me very sad
because of all the people whose quality of life would
be so much better, but will never know what they
missed. I came here nearly 20 years ago to. escape the
urban sprawl and urban blight that current tax laws in
this country seem to create.'There isA lot to like here,"
and 1 hoped that people here could be spared the
problems I have seen elsewhere. But is has been like
trying to help your teenager avoid the mistakes of
your own youth, each generation thinks they know
best, and ultimately they must learn old truths the hard
way. Perhaps the current housing downturn will be
good, as it will give people time to understand.
I see in national and state parks what Egans Creek
could have been. I remember the vitae course on
Baptist Hospital for heart patients, the tiny garden
with water feature once in downtown Miami, the botan-
ical gardens of Oklahoma City or even the public
transportation system we almost had, and it makes me
sad. Vision 2000 showed me that the problem is not the
vision of the people but whether the vision of elected
officials is up to the task.
Will the commission combine all these ideas with
the infrastructure to make it a cohesive whole, get Mr.
(Randy) Rice or other architect to create an artist ren-
dering or perhaps offer a prize to area graphic arts stu-
dents to produce pictures that could run in the News-
Leader? Will they include this on the November ballot
as a straw vote?
The problems of this county must be met, not by
my vision or your vision or even the commission's
vision, but by the shared vision of the thousands of
county residents. One raindrop will only dampen your
, shirt, but the Mississippi River at flood stage is a col-
lection of raindrops acting together.

Special needs
My daughter is a seventh-grade student at
Fernandina Beach Middle School. She also has special
needs. She was diagnosed with "pervasive develop-
mental disorder with autistic like tendencies." She
has since been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.
She is supposed to have a paraprofessional to work with
her, however the paraprofessional has another autis-
tic child who requires so much help that she doesn't
have time to help my "highly functioning" daughter.
One of her teachers informed her, "You are not
special." When my daughter retorted, "I am special,"
the teacher took her outside to chastise her. This
teacher threatens her with detention. She constantly
tells my daughter that she can do better. I've always
told my child to do her best, and she does.
I have talked to guidance, the principal, the teacher
and the school board. Their explanation is that they are
not prepared for these children. One out of every 150
children is now born with autism. My daughter entered
the school system in 1997. Why are they not pre-
pared? Perhaps if some other source is involved the
school may decide to do something.

Empty chair
In 2006, Charlie Crist ran for governor on a populist
platform, pledging to be the people's governor, offer-
ing glimpses of a bright future for Florida on the hori-
But now we learn that he hasn't showed up for
work even half of the time. Where is Charlie Crist
when we need him? In the first 44 days of 2008, Gov.
Crist took off more weekdays than he worked - show-
ing up less than 50 percent of the time. His fellow
Republicans have run amuck in the state legislature.
Crist's absenteeism and lack of leadership is a dis-
service to all Floridians.
Charlie Crist relentlessly attacked his Democratic
opponent in 2006, Jim Davis, by saying "Jim, as you
know, you can't govern from an empty chair." The
accompanying ad campaign should offer enough proof
that Charlie's memory can't be that bad. We need to
hold him to the standard he once claimed he would
We've had enough of the endless electioneering and
infinite photo ops. Contrary to GOP delusions, we're
now mired in a Republican recession. The governor
has been getting a free pass from the media, but his
hypocrisy is apparent.
He said he would come to work every day, but he
doesn't. He's off trying to get attention to become VP.
What a joke. And we've got real problems to deal with
in Florida. I don't know about you, but I'm concerned
about rising insurance costs and living in the state
leading the housing industry meltdown. I make sac-
rifices every day to make sure I can pay for gas and
afford healthcare.
I know Florida can't afford to adopt a three-day
workweek. Charlie Crist shouldn't be able to get away
with doing so, especially considering his promise to
work hard for the people.

Time for "Fair Tax"?
Tax time is about four weeks away. April 15 is just
about my worst day of the year. I never know whether
I have paid enough of my "fair share" of taxes. Every
year, even though I have tried my best to predict my
income, I either have to pay way too much or have paid
out way too much.

Wouldn't it be nice to know up front what your tax
payment will be and not have to worry about an audit
later because of a mistake or error in judgment? (The
tax code is now over 67,000 pages long.) Wouldn't it be
a great feeling if your local drug dealer or "under the
table" wage earnerpaid the same tax y3ou did? Catybu
imagine hating eitir money in .ifr''pbtket, tibe
end of the day to either save for your future or your
kids' future? What would it be like to look at your pay
stub and not see any deductions taken out, that the
money I earn is mine until I go and buy something?
The idea that a congressman or government offi-
cial or even the president of the United States can
have the power of tax cuts or tax increases and use
them for a political gain sends shivers up my spine. To
look into the future and see my children having to fork
out big bucks for my social security, especially when
us baby boomers will not be paying into FICA, makes
me want to give away what little savings I have and let
the government support me. Nah!
The "Fair Tax" supposedly places an end to this
madness. They say that my income should be mine to
spend as I want, according to my needs and that, once
paid at the cash register, I will have no more worries.
This is my "Field of Dreams." I know that this proposal
has some shortcomings and pitfalls, but our present
course is headed towards disaster. Something needs

Rayonier responds
Re: "Damage to A1A" (March P).
Glenn Loum has a good idea for an overweight
truck policy. In fact. Rayonier implemented this exact
policy in January 2002.
Any load that enters our mill with a gross weight
over 80,000 pounds gets a clear indication (in big bold
letters) that it is overweight. Any portion of a load
above 88,000 pounds (a 10 percent tolerance) is clas-
sified as overweight cull and is not paid.
Why do we provide a 10 percent tolerance?
Because just a few logs can make a big difference in
the weight of the truck. Timber is variable in length,
diameter, taper, density, etc., making it difficult for
the loader to estimate the weight of the load. In fact,
certain logs may weigh over 2,000 pounds. The dif-
ference in full fuel tanks and nearly empty tanks can
be almost 1,000 pounds. Therefore, we assume that up
to the 10 percent tolerance, the operator was trying to
obey the law but underestimated the weight of the load.
I also want to point out the importance of the 10 per-
cent tolerance in ensuring efficiencies. Full loads are
good for all of us because it means fewer trucks on the
highway, fewer emissions and the most efficient uti-
lization of fuel.
Rayonier has been proud to call Fernandina Beach
home for more than 70 years and we want to be a
good neighbor. However, we must receive our raw
material by truck. If you see a log or chip truck vio-
lating the law, please feel free to call me directly at (904)

Paulsons leaving Amelia Baptist for Gainesville

Going to Mexico on a mission trip from
First Baptist Church, Gray Gables, Feb. 16-
23 were Bro. Mark and Michael Tuso, Brad
and Tammy Braddock, Danny McMillan,
Frank Ting, Warren Hunter, Charles Zoeller,
Jeff Braddock, Dana Webber and Tim,
Adam and Cody Page.
Sunday at 6 p.m. is discipleship training
- 'The Big Picture Bible Study," Old
Testament - and is led by Bro. Mark Tuso,
Bob Burgess and Tracy Sweat. "Finding Our
Identity" was Bro. Mark's message, taken
from Romans 5:12-21, on Feb. 17.
The Al Paulsons are leaving Amelia
Baptist Church! He writes: "Dear church
family, five years ago God called Lisa and me
here to Amelia Baptist Church. I wasn't
quite sure what God was doing, throwing a
country boy from High Springs into such an
affluent community, but God's call back then
was clear and unmistakable. In the years
that followed, God showed us why he had
placed us in this church family. My two chil-
dren were born into a church family that
loved them like no other could.
"We were able to be a support for stu-
dents who were dealing with major life
issues that might not have received the
same care elsewhere. God had definitely put
us here for a purpose and there is no better
place to be than in the center of God's will.
" Recently, God's call to us once again has
been clear and unmistakable! God has inade
it clear that the time for our ministry at
Amelia Baptist Church has come to a close.
We have accepted a call to become partners
in a ministry with Northwest Baptist Church
in Gainesville.
"God had to do a lot of convincing over
the past several months to bring us to a
point where we would even consider leaving
Amelia Baptist Church family. Seeing His
hand at work in this situation has made His
will so plain that we could not deny it and
that is the only thing that gives us the
strength to make this decision. God can
work anything to His glory, even this. *
Their last Sunday here was March 9. Al's
farewell event was March 2. God bless, Al,
in your new location.
From the Heart of Pastor Jackie Hayes,
Springhill Baptist Church: "I recently read a
book entitled The Story of God.' A page
jumped out at me. A great truth to remem-
ber. Read and enjoy. People who understand
the decree (God's plan to fulfill His purpose
in this world and in our lives of God are

thankful people). Paul..
wrote that we should
give thanks in every-
thing because that is
God's will for us. We
should be assured that
'all things work togeth-
" - er for good to those
who love God.' Why
can Paul say these
Hilda things? Because his
Higginbotham theology was sound.
God has an eternal

The Good Timers of First Baptist Church
of Fernandina Beach traveled to Hilliard
Baptist Church for the Northeast Florida
Baptist Association seniors adult luncheon
Feb. 14. Jeannie Sasser opened by singing
two beautiful songs. The Rev. Frank
Camarotti had roll call with River Road

A delicious' lunch was'seried in the sociil
hall, which was decorated with a red and
white Valentine motif. There were 234 in
attendance! Larry Williams, with his lovely
wife Jewell, works with The Good Timers
Group at their church. Grace E. Holland
reports this for my column. Their next quar-
terly meeting is with Callahan First Baptist
Church May 8.
Pastor's Corner at Blackrock Baptist
Church; the.Rev. Frank Camarotti reporting:
"On Feb. 10 the church voted to extend a
call to Matt Gingery as our fulltime music
minister. Matt is married to Terri and they
have two children, Adam and Abe. They are.
now serving a church in Enterprise, Ala.
Matt's first Sunday will be April 6.
"I am personally excited about Matt
being our music minister. Ed Cook has been
our bi-vocational music minister for almost.
two years. As many of you know, God has
called Ed to pastoral ministry. Ed has done a
tremendous job with our choir. He has
shown us what the possibilities are for our
music program if we had someone fulltime

working with us. Thanks, Ed and Robyn, for
a job well done!
"Easter comes early this year and we
look forward to celebrating the resurrection
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The
words the angels shared with the first visi-
tors to the tomb where Jesus was buried still
echoes in the ears of the believers. Luke
24:4-6. 'And it came to pass, as they were
much perplexed there about, behold two
men stood by them in shining garments; and
as they were afraid and bowed down their
faces to the earth, they said unto them,
'Why seek ye the living among the dead? he
is not here, but is risen.' Our religion would
be no better than any other religion if Jesus
was still in the grave. But Praise God, he
defeated death and today sits at the right
hand of the Father in Heaven.
'That is our hope, that one day as believ-
ers, we too will be in heaven with Jesus. A
place of no more sorrows, tears, pain, dark-
ness, sin nor death; with Jesus forever more!
"We will be having a Sunrise service
again this year at the pavilion in Pirates
Wood. Directions and time to follow. Hope to
see all in church! God bless."

FRIDAY. MARCH 14.2008/News-Leader


Palm Sunday, truth and the cleaning of God's house

"Excuse me," I heard the Lord
say. "What are you doing?"
"Ah, I'm preaching," I
responded in my heart, knowing
that He was after something
much deeper. Though initially no
one had a clue the Lord was talk-
ing to me, I knew it was Him.
Never before had He interrupted
me in such a way, especially right
in the middle of what I thought
was a great sermon.
It all happened several years
ago during one of our mid-week
meetings. As is often the case, I
-was telling a story that seemed to
fit the topic matter- of the mes-
- sage that night. While I can't
:remember exactly which story it
was, I do remember it was a good

one. People
were laugh-
ing and I was

the interac-
maybe you
already know
this, but pub-
Rob lic speaking
Goyette is an interest-
ing thing.
" Sometimes
pU p people are
NOTES really
engaged in
what you're saying and other
times they're not. One thing's for
sure, when those you're speaking

to have drifted off to some other
world, your primary assignment
is to get them back. I mean really,
what point is there speaking to
people who aren't even listening.
As for me, I've found there's noth-
ing quite like a good story to do
the trick. Either way, that particu-
lar night things were going great;
or so I thought.
"I want you to fix that," I heard
the Lord say, and suddenly I
knew just what He was talking
about. Somehow, in the midst of
enjoying a very engaged congre-
gation I had embellished my
story beyond the truth. Though
no one knew it, and to be honest,
initially I didn't even realize I had
done it, God saw it and He want-

ed it right.
I'm sure you can imagine the
war that began on the inside of
me. To fix it was going to cost me
my pride. And, besides, it wasn't
that big of a deviation. Who
would ever know it? I'll just be
careful not to do it again, I rea-
soned, thinking I could just move
on, but not so.
I'm sure that's about the time
my congregation began to won-
der what was happening. After a
few moments of silence, I found
God's grace to speak. "I have to
fix something," I told them.
"Though the story I just shared is
true, those last few details were
not exactly accurate and God has
brought it to my attention. Please *

forgive me," I said, not quite sure
what to expect next.
Thankfully, those present that
night had received enough of
God's grace in their own lives to
have some to extend to me. All I
knew was that whether people
approved of me or not, or
whether they liked my preaching
or not, things were right between
God and me.
As we approach Palm Sunday
and prepare to celebrate Jesus'
triumphant entry into the city of
Jerusalem, perhaps it's a good
time to remember just what He
did when He got there.
Matthew's gospel, chapter 21,
gives us the vivid account.
Though I'm sure Jesus joyfully

received everyone waving their
palm branches that day, He clear-
ly was on a mission. Into the tem-
ple He went and began turning
over tables and driving out every-
thing that wasn't a reflection of
the truth. Just like with me
preaching that day, God loves us
too much to let us veer away from
what's true.
As for me during this Easter
season, I've chosen not only to
worship and thank God for the
resurrection, but for loving me
enough to watch over my soul
and keep it pure.

Florida tax revenues decline;

more budget cutting looms

State budget writers have been
given some more bad news;
Economists have revised their fore-
cast of Florida's general revenue
collections by a combined $2.945
billion in 2007-8 and 2008-9.
Estimated revenues for the fis-
cal year that ends June 30 were
reduced by $1 billion (3.9 percent)
from the previous estimate in
November. Expected revenues for
2008-09 were decreased by $1.942
billion (7.3 percent).
This revision continues an
unprecedented series of reduced
forecasts. The $27.5 billion esti-
mate on which lawmakers based
the current year's budget has now
been reduced three times by a lit-
tle more than $1 billion each time.
Revenue estimates for the upcom-
ing budget are now $4.6 billion less
than where they were a year ago.
Collections next year are

expected to increase by only $110
million from the current year. This
follows actual annual decreases in
general revenue in both 2007-8 and
2006-7, the first time in Florida's
history that this has happened.
The state's economists said that
Florida's continuing economic
downturn is now being affected by
the nation heading into a reces-
Tight credit, rising energy
prices, falling employment and fur-
ther deterioration of the housing
market are all having a negative
impact on Florida.
Reduced wealth from housing
price depreciation and falling con-
sumer confidence have resulted in
less spending on big-ticket items
and other non-essentials, and sales
tax collections are suffering.
Documentary stamp and intangi-
bles tax collections are down due

to tighter lending practices. Comp-
ressed profit margins caused in
part by higher energy prices are
cutting into corporate income
The legislature has already cut
the current budget by more than
$1.5 billion. Next year's budget
may have to be cut by up to $3.5 bil-
lion, according to Florida
"Now is a time for great fiscal
statesmanship," Florida TaxWatch
said in a statement. "Florida must'
not try to tax its way out of this

only make matters worse. Instead,

When I answered
my cell phone,
the first thing
that Joanna Gray
yelled was, "This is bad, this
is really bad!"
"Is it crooked?" I asked.
Joanna began to tell me
that her youngest son, Sam,
had fallen on a skateboard
ramp and now his arm was
horribly bent. I told her to go
directly to the Baptist Medical
Center Nassau emergency
room and I would see her
there. They were checked in,
an IV was started and he was
given a little pain medicine-to
calm him down.
When I walked in, Sam
was calm. In fact, he barely
noticed me. He was watching
Cartoon Network from a
small television suspended
over his head. I took a look at
his X-rays and saw the he had
broken both of the bones in
his forearm and we would
have to set it and then put
him into a cast.
Using the IV that had been
placed in the hand of Sam's
broken forearm, I performed
what is called a Bier block. A
blood pressure cuff is applied
to his upper arm and inflated
and then Novacaine is inject-
ed into the arm through the
IV. While I worked, Sam con-
tinued to act as if I wasn't
even there. His eyes
remained glued to the televi-
' We've all seen the mind-
numbing effects TV has on

have shown that kids watch-
ing TV actually require less

In a study from the
University of Siena in Italy,
Dr. Carlo Bellieni showed that
kids who were allowed to
watch TV during a medical
procedure reported less pain
and required, less medication', r
thith6whf'o-did thbt.' :'f
Interestingly, it was also
noted that, given the choice of
being comforted by Mom or
by TV, the majority of chil-
dren said that they preferred
the television.
; The results of this
research were published in
the British Journal Archives of
Disease in Childhood.
Once the medicine that I
injected had taken effect and
Sam's arm was completely
-numb, I then set the bones
back into position. He did
look up briefly when he heard
them snap back into place. I
got another X-ray to check his
alignment and make sure that
I was happy with the position
of the bones and then placed
him into a long arm cast
Joanna was amazed at how
pain-free the whole-thing was
and at how calm her son was
during the whole event. Sam
Would spend the next three
weeks in his long cast, at
which time I would then
switch him over to a short
hrm cast for a couple more

able to help and happy Sam

Yulee dealt

its first loss

The Hornets suffered their first loss of the season
Monday, falling to Trinity Christian 4-3.
'The 2007 season began and ended with a loss to
Trinity Christian," said Will Minor, head baseball
coach at Yulee High School. 'The first loss of the
2008 season also goes down to Trinity Christian. Even
though it is the same results, this time around we
weren't beaten -we beat ourselves."
Buck Marell (3-1-1) pitched a complete game giv-
ing up seven hits, striking out seven and giving up no
earned runs.
"Our defense let us down with six errors, includ-

Fish tip of south jetties for big black drum

Night fishing for black drum often produces
big fish like this one landed by David Bean.

The annual run of black drum has taken
residents along the beaches, at the St.
Marys Inlet, Nassau Sound and in deep
river holes. Some of the best catches have
been made while fishing the deep waters off the tip
of the St. Marys south jetty rocks.
Mark Douglas of the Bait House reports Robert
Walker has made some big catches of black drum
while fishing at the tip of the St.
Marys south jetties.
"Several drum boats hooked
up with a nice run of black
drum weighing to 50 pounds
recently while fishing the
incoming tide at the St. Marys
south jetty rocks," Douglas
said. "Some of the larger drum
are taking large shrimp and tra-
ditional blue crabs."
Terry Lacoss "We have been catching
... . - both black and red drum while
ON THE fishing at the tip of the St.
Marys south jetty rocks," Capt.
WATER Benny Hendrix said. "Some of
the big drum are hitting blue
crabs, while we have also caught a few big drum
with fresh shrimp."
However, the biggest fishing story this week has
to be Bob Harrington's big catch that came just off
the little jetties at. Fort Clinch.
"Bob Harrington recently brought me a huge
black drum to see at Leaders & Sinkers," Don
Whitman said. "When I asked what fishing rod that
he caught the big drum on, he said his whiting rod.
I know that big drum had to weigh every bit of 85

Exhibit tells

the story of our
favorite playthings
For die News-Leader
Let's face it - we were all once
kids. And most of us will
admit that some of our fond-
est childhood memories go
back to the days when nothing could
go wrong as long as our favorite toy
was by our side.
The Amelia Island Museum of
History's new exhibit, "Florida Girls
and Boys and Their Toys," will bring
back those special memories. Though
toys have changed over time - plas-
tics have replaced metals and corners
aren't so sharp - they still occupy a
very important place in our lives.
Continuing with its the goal of
bringing quality exhibits, the Amelia
Island Museum of History, 233 S.
Third St., is presenting an exhibit on
loan from the Museum of Florida
History displaying the history of toys
dating from the late 1880s to the
1970s. The exhibit contains 30 sepia-
toned photographs of toys that date
from 1881 to 1971. (Somewhere in
that time frame most of us were kids!)
The main portion of the exhibit
focuses on original and reproduction
toys of Florida pioneer children.
Many of these toys were handmade
by family members. The exhibit tells
the story of various types qf toys
made from metal and tin including
trains, metal soldiers, and wind-up
Continuing through the 1920s up to
the 1950s, the exhibit shows the popu-
larity of board games and doll collec-
tions. The final portion of the exhibit
relates to the 1960s and the rise of
plastic toys and new fads such as the
Slinky, which hasn't changed since it.

the town or grape,

equals good wine

For the News-Leader
T he view from Montepulciano is a wine
lover's dream: hundreds of vineyards can be
seen stretching into the misty horizon from
this charming hilltop town that overlooks
the heart of Tuscany's viticulture. The rich san-
giovese grapes grown around the town produce
some of the world's best red wines and is often the
source of some confusion, as some miles to the east
in the province of Abruzzo, a lesser grape is grown
that carries the same name as the town.
Throughout Italy, towns are built on hilltops (to
catch cooling breezes during hot summers). Tuscany
is replete with them.
Montepulciano is built on
Monte Poliziano in the
province of Sienna at the
lower reaches of the famed
Chianti District. It is the ! " I
ancient Etruscan city of
Nocera Alfaterna. It is a tourist's dream, with a long
cobblestoned main street, a photogenic central square
featuring several wine-tasting shops and memorable
Montepulciano's history has always been closely
linked to the fame of its vines and wine. The 2,000-
year-old kylix (wine cup) with red figures discovered
in an Etruscan tomb near the town depicts Flufluns,
the Etruscan Bacchus, god of wine, playing at cottabo
(a wine game). The Gauls were attracted to Italy by
the wine of these hills. In 789 the church of San
Silvestro obtained a portion with vineyards
here. In 1350 the terms for trade of Montepulciano
wine were established. Linked often with royalty, the
area's wines became known as Vino Nobile di
Essentially a Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
is made with prugnolo gentile (a sangiovese clone), 80
percent, canaiolo, 15 percent, and mammolo, 5 per-
cent. It is red-garnet in'color with amber shades. It has
an intense and delicate violet aroma, dry taste, slight
tannins and a smooth velvet-like mouth feel. (Rosso
Scelto di Montepulciano is a similar wine but has a
separate designation from the Italian wine control
authority based on production quantities, alcohol con-
tent and aging.) Vino Nobile'is a robust, flavorful dry
red that goes well with a variety of food and generally
doesn't break.the budget. Very much like Chianti.
Nobile is a good wine. But only an educated taste
can tell its difference from its equally historic and
enjoyable Tuscan neighbors, Brunello di Montalcino
and Chianti. All three wines are made from similar
grapes - primarily local variants of sangiovese - and
follow similar winemaking procedures that vary in
details important only to students of wine-related
The Vecchia Cantina di Montepulciano is the
largest viticulture and viniculture business in the
Poliziana region, a modern company rich in traditions.
It produces several wines including Vino Nobile,
which can be found in Jacksonville wine markets, usu-
ally between $10 and $15.

confused, bewildered, bored,
affronted and deafened by the
boos all around me, at the most
disastrous Cannes press screen-
ing since, yes, "The Brown
Bunny." Now here is the director's
cut, which is 20 minutes shorter,
lops off a couple of characters
and a few of the infinite subplots,
and is even more of a mess. I
recommend that director Richard
Kelly keep right on cutting until he
whittles it down to a ukulele pick.

The magic of the great Gabriel

WINE Continued from 1B
ple inhabit the hills and moun-
tains that mark the province. The
food and wine cultures reflect
that lack of affluence in a hard-
working community. The hill-
sides are excellent for viticulture.
The most popular red grape is
the montepulciano, which has no
relation to sangiovese or the vil-
lage of the same name in
The wines are at least 85 per-
cent montepulciano, with san-
giovese permitted, but not

required, at up to 15 percent.
The montepulciano grape is
quite prolific. It is plump with
high amounts of juice. In an area
this poor, this has been a boon to
farmers wishing to take advan-
tage of high yields. Unlike most
other varietals, this grape makes
nice wine even when produced in
large quantities. The grape has a
deep purple and ruby color. It has
lower acidity than most Italian
wines and mild tannins. The
resulting wines tend to be softer
than Chianti. Montepulciano
d'Abruzzo wines are fresh and

powerful, yet rustic, often with an
earthy quality to them, treasured
by some and disliked by others.
Almost all of the low-priced
wines (many can be found for
under $8) are enjoyable. At the
same time, Montepulciano
d'Abruzzo can age brilliantly
especially in the hands of the
right producers.
The firm of Emidio Pepe has
been making wines in this area
since 1964. Pepe's grapes are pro-
duced organically and fermented
in glass tanks (not wood) for 18
to 24 months. His wines see no

sulfur dioxide (a chemical treat-
ment often used to prevent
spoilage.) They are some of the
few Montepulciano d'Abruzzo's,
which do not drink as well young.
But they improve with age. In
fact, his wines can easily last 20
to 30 years. His wines from the
1970's and 1980's are still avail-
able at retail (for over $200 per
bottle). They are not easy wines
to find, but they are some of the
greatest red wines from Italy.
Robert Weintraub writes on
wine monthly. He can be reached

through the ham, resulting in a firmer,
juicier, and easier to carve ham.

When the ham is ready for slicing,
place it on its side on the carving
board. Use a meat fork to hold the
ham steady, and make perpendicular
slices down to the leg bone in
the desired thickness.

Loosen the slices by curing
horizontally along the leg borne
Remove each slice with the fork
and arrange the ham slices on
a serving platter. Serve with
pineapple mustard sauce

savor the experience for years to come.

After curing our ham with a special blend of seasonings, we slow-cook it for
up to: 12 hours to achieve the most tender and juicy results. Next, we smoke
the ham over hickory hardwood to give it an incomparably mild and delicious
flavor The final result is a classic-tasting, savory ham that contains 25% less
sodium than the leading national brand.

Visit the Meat department at your neighborhood Publix. Every Publix Semi-
Boneless Ham includes the most desirable out-the center slices-so all.
you have to do is choose the ideal size for your family. Figure on approximately
1/2 pound per person, with perhaps a bit extra to enjoy after the holiday.

Fully cooked, this ham only requires heating up. Remove all packaging and
wrap the ham in aluminum foil (to keep it moist and flavorfull, and place it
in a shallow baking pan in a 325TF oven. Heat it for approximately 20
minutes per pound, and you're on your way to a wonderful, unforgettable
holiday meal.
