AIRPORT Continued from 1A
year, the second to pay its attorney
fees after the city unsuccessfully
appealed that judgment.
And the legal beat goes on.
The city now has incurred at
least $300,000 in legal fees and
costs battling McGill in court since
August 2004.
But the end may be in sight.
The city's contract with McGill,
which operates the airport for it,
called for arbitration of any legal
disputes. Bach said that has
dragged the process out, but she
anticipates a resolution later this
The arbitration hearing, which
resumed Jan. 8 after a hiatus, has
"We have no idea what the arbi-
trator is going to rule," Bach said
"The arbitrator has indicated
both sides are going to win some,
lose some. This is not a slam dunk
for either side."
McGill is seeking damages that
could total hundreds of thousands
of dollars.
The city has requested reim-
bursement from its insurer for
$306,000 in legal fees and costs,
Bach said. The city has been reim-
bursed $92,000 thus far, with other
claims pending.
Davis first granted McGill attor-
ney fees on March 30, 2007, but the
city appealed. The First District
Court of Appeals ruled in McGill's

"It sounds like the death of
an industry, and that's a sad
thing," said board member Robert
Member Bill Conger said he
did not want to see "a bunch of
millionaires" downtown, and said
he feared that is what will happen
with the type of development Lane
is proposing.
Board member Eric Bartelt
complained that Lane Develop-
ment could eventually control
the downtown area, saying he
saw "the potential for creation

Davis ordered the payments to
The attorney fees are being
paid because the city failed in an
attempt to limit the scope of the
arbitration of the dispute, accord-
ing to Sean McGill, president of
McGill Aviation Corp.
The scope of the arbitration and
who should pay legal fees are sec-
ondary to the main event, a com-
plicated lease dispute between
McGill and the city over operation
costs and conditions.
The city has had three city attor-
neys arid outside counsel working
on the case since it was filed in
2004. Bach became the city
attorney in November. Her prede-
cessor, interim city attorney
Anthony Leggio, was retained by
the city for the duration of the
litigation with McGill. His prede-
cessor, Debra Braga, was city attor-
ney when the dispute was filed.
The city used an Orlando firm,
Bell, Leeper & Roper, PA, as out-
side counsel to handle the dispute
originally. After paying the firm
more than $50,000, the city decid-
ed it needed new counsel.
Last summer the commission

McGill's rental fees and other

McGill's claim alleges the city

McGill; violated federal law; vio-

Disputes have been ongoing
almost since McGill assumed the
lease in 1998, but escalated in the
months before and after the Super
Bowl in Jacksonville in January
Arbitration, which is intended to
cut costs and streamline the legal
process, has not worked well, Bach

Tomassetti. "If it doesn't turn out

gun scandals.
In 2002, a 46-year-old Hilliard
man died after a Nassau County
deputy used a stun gun on him, but
the Jacksonville Medical Examin-
er's Office later ruled his death was
the result of a cocaine overdose.
In 2005 a Nassau County deputy
was fired after an internal investi-
gation determined that, among
other things, he used unnecessary
force in the form of a stun gun on a
man he was arresting. And in 2006
a Fernandina Beach Police officer
was arrested after he used a stun
.gun on a Nassau County deputy he
reportedly discovered kissing his
wife. In that case both officers were
temporarily suspended from duty.
Officers who carry stun guns
are required to take a class certify-

By all accounts, getting stunned
is extremely painful, but Seagraves
said it's clearly less dangerous than
using a gun. It's also more efficient
and less potentially dangerous than

River cleanup nets trash and a few surprises

West Nassau Correspondent

About 729 volunteers from
Nassau and Baker counties in
Florida and Charlton and Camden
counties in Georgia, took part in
the St. Marys River Celebration
2008 Saturday. This is a one-day
river cleanup of the St. Mary's
River, its tributaries and adjacent
"We did excellent," said Dean
Woehrle, St. Marys River
Management Committee co-chair-
man and organizer of the event.
He said the river was over its banks
in several locations, but volunteers
still managed to collect 35,000
pounds of garbage and debris. He
said more little kids took part than
ever before, including Scouts and
members of the Juss Horsin
Around 4-H Club.
In addition to the usual beer
bottles and cans, unusual findings
included a driver's license (one
was found last year), a complete
toilet and a baby's stroller. But
when Keith Daughtry arrived back
at Scott's Landing and presented
his findings, everyone there
agreed, his was the most unusual:
a full month's supply of birth con-
trol pills.
The cleanup started at 8 a.m.
and ended about 11:30 a.m. with a
"Post" Cleanup celebration at
White Oak Plantation, which
ended around 2:30 p.m.
Volunteers signing in at the
Scott's Landing site had an unex-
pected treat. They were visited by
a yearling from the adjacent
According to site captain and
owner of the St. Marys River Fish
Camp and Campground, Steve
Beck, the yearling makes daily
appearances and enjoys the atten-
tion from resident campers, who
have affectionately nicknamed him

A visiting yearling nicknamed
"Backstrap" appeared at the
St. Marys River Fish Camp
and Campground twice dur-
ing the annual St. Marys
River Celebration on

"Backstrap." When Beck travels
the grounds in his golf cart, the
yearling follows him.
- This year's commemorative T-
shirt was the result of a contest,
and Woehrle said Lavonna J.
Newman of Callahan who submit-
ted a painting of the US 17 bridge
was at the White Oak luncheon
when she was announced the win-
ner. The prize was $200.
When volunteers registered to
take part in the cleanup each was
given a
ticket entitling them to a T-shirt
and admission to White Oak for
their annual reward in the form of
a feast.
Woehrle said White Oak was
prepared to feed 400 - the number
that usually attends - and this year
had to magically come up with
enough hot dogs, hamburgers, sal-
ads, desserts, beverages and
accompaniments to feed 550.
If there was an award for the
"Star of the Year," or "whoever has
shown the most today, it's a lady

named Charlene Sears," said
Woehrle. According to Woehrle,
Sears is a Camden County com-
missioner employed by the
Camden County Sheriff's
Department and also serves on
the St. Marys River Management
Committee. Woehrle said she was
responsible for motivating more
people from Camden County to
become involved this year's
There were 22 clean-up sites
this year and the event was co-
sponsored by the St. Marys River

than 5,000 volunteers met along
north and east central Florida to
clear the waterways of trash and
expanded the event the following
year to include Nassau County.

Over the past nine years, more
than 6,725 volunteers have
removed more than a half million
pounds of trash from the St. Marys
River and its tributaries.

4H members have fun in Ocala

West Nassau Correspondent

The last week of February was
a busy one for Nassau County 4-H
youths. Twenty of them traveled
to the 4-H Camp Ocala for Youth
Adventure Weekend Feb. 22 and
23, an event planned and taught by
the District VI 4-H Council.
Council youths taught visitors
from Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau,
Putnam and St. Johns counties
about weather wonders and team-
building throtigh games andhands-
on learning activities.
Campers attended a multitude

of other classes as well and also
learned camp songs on the long
ride to and from the camp, said' 4-
H program leader Amanda Thien.
She 'said adult chaperones, with-
out whom the trip would not have
been possible, were Wendy Adams
and Sharon Hygema.
On Feb. 25 Thien, accompanied
by a group of 4-H teens and Fu-
turamas club leader Brenda Mikus,
toured the Anheuser Busch Nutri-
Turf facility just south of Callahan.
They viewed a multi-media pres-
entation about ftle facility' anc
which species inhabit theland and,
then played a game similar to jeop-

ardy, but where the questions
revolve around avian topics.
The group also helped fill a trac-
tor spreader with wildflower seeds
to help attract pollinators, Each was
given samples of the seeds to plant
at home. The event concluded with
a delicious dinner.
"We would like to say a special
thank you to Tim Pittman for the
invitation and opportunity to learn
more about habitat projects occur-
ring in our community, and to the
other employees of Nutri-Turf who
treated.ourgroup so graciously.
This. Was a fun and educational
learning experience," Thien said.

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners had questions about wet-

of the St. Johns River Water
Management District during a pres-
entation at a January commission
The district overview was pre-

David Miracle and intergovern-
mental coordinator David Sample
The district's mitigation permits
have been a source of controversy
for the city of Fernandina Beach
in recent months. SJRWMD
approved a permit last year for the
Perpall property off Sadler Road
to fill in wetlands for a hotel. That
was possible as long as mitigation
was undertaken.
Miracle explained in his pres-
entation that Nassau County has

The issue was to go Thursday
before the city Board of

granted or denied a variance to

but consideration was postponed
while negotiations continue.
City Attorney Tammi Bach rec-
ommended the purchase to help
the city avoid protracted litigation.

83 pounds of pot found

in Yulee woman's home

A massage therapist and life-
long resident of Nassau County
was arrested Tuesday after nar-
cotics detectives reportedly found
83 pounds of marijuana in her
96092 Coral Reef Road home.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said Amy Carlyne

arrest had only one traffic ticket
from 1994 on her record in Nassau
County - willingly let police search
the home. They did not have a
search warrant, but after her arrest
Seagraves said Thomas stopped'
cooperating and has asked for an



- The investi-

when police
received infor-
mation that
Thomas was
selling drugs.
"We've still
got more infor-
Thomas mation that
we're digging
into right now,
we're going to look into her bank
accounts," Seagraves said. "It was
just one of these situations where
we had no information on her, then
we got some and the investigation
quickly progressed."
Police also found $21,808 in
cash at Thomas' home, along with

2.1 grams of cocaine, a large digi-
tal scale and a vacuum packer.
There were several packages of
vacuum-sealed marijuana inside
the home; the street value of the
marijuana was about $160,000,
according to police.
Thomas was arrested for traf-
ficking more than 25 pounds of
marijuana, possession of cocaine
with intent to sell, possession of
marijuana with intent to sell, man-
ufacture or deliver, possession of
more than 20 grams of marijuana

I couldn't quite put my finger
on it, but I knew there was
something amiss with the
writing assignment Ken
Mertz gave us at the last meeting
of the Writers and Poets Society.
We meet at 9 a.m. the third
Saturday of every month, and it
took me until mid-afternoon that
Saturday to figure out why I was
going to have trouble writing the
piece he requested.
I have spent the last few
decades writing about used cars,
dairy products, helicopters, life in
Paradise and murder. Why, then,
was I having such difficulty
grasping my latest writing assign-
ment? I remembered that we'd
spent a large chunk of that morn-
ing discussing the different ways
writers write. We all agreed that
no matter how our initial words
are transcribed - with graphite or
electrons - the computer can be a
boon to the modern writer. We
also agreed that it's unfortunate
that we spend so much of our
valuable writing time on figuring
out how make this infernal
machine help us communicate
with our writing. That unhappy
realization led Ken to ask us to
write a short piece about one of
our more frustrating digital
moments with the computer.
I'm so old I initially thought

SIDEBAR ture, I feel
compelled to
point a finger at the common
practice of using the first two fin-
gers of each hand to put quota-
tion marks around selected
words to emphasize the point we
are trying to make.)
I suppose the real starting
point for this digital discourse is
to recognize the names we have
given these important parts.
People much more erudite than I
have written volumes about our
opposable thumbs. I will not .
embarrass myself by adding any
comments to this bibliography,
except to say that those of us who
have ever injured that defining
member can attest to its impor-
tance in the homo sapiens
scheme of things:
Next in line is the digit which
I call my "pointy finger." I am
aware that we usually call it our
index finger, and up until this
moment I have never wondered
why. Perhaps it's because we
employ this finger to trace, or
index, down lists of information.
Regardless of what we call it, I
know it's time for me to excuse
myself when I start stabbing my
pointy finger at someone. If that
finger were to ever make contact
with my conversational partner's
corpus, it would be called assault,
with or without the quotes
around it.
Right next to my pointer is the
"obscene finger," which always
reminds me of my father. The

The people and places in the incredible story of Easter

are real -a documented part of history. Two thousand years

ago God's son came to earth to live among the people he

created. It's the story of Jesus Christ and his willingness to

suffer and die, but also about his power to rise from the

dead, for all of us. And, this true story opened the door

to a new way of doing life for all of us.


We are currently in a series entitled "Doors". When it

comes to God we go door to door, searching desperately

for a way in. In this special Easter message, Lead Pastor

Darryl Bellar shows us that no matter how many doors

we knock on and no matter how many thresholds we

cross, God has already provided us with an all access pass.

The left hook misses

Ever watch a fight you think has been fixed? I
used to do a little boxing and I can usually
tell when a fighter gives it up to his opponent
without a real fight.
Here we are on the cusp of 2008 presidential elec-
tion - the Heavyweight Championship of the World.
The GOP's contender is an aging fighter whose
name its red-meat fan base can hardly utter without
grabbing a barf bag. The economy's in the stink pit
beneath the outhouse and getting worse each day.
Dubya promised to get Osama bin Laden "dead or
alive." The world's tallest terrorist is still laughing at
us from his lair in Berserkistan. Like the impotent
fool Dubya is, all he succeeded in doing was greas-
ing a tin pot dictator who wasn't bothering us, get-
ting thousands of our brothers and sisters in arms
killed and creating a hornets' nest where none exist-
ed before. The so-called war on terror is a joke, a
really, really dumb bumper sticker slogan. People
are weary of this pointless exercise called a "war" in
Iraq. GOP nominee in waiting John McCain says
we're there for the long haul.
Should be easy pickings for the Democratic Party
this time around. The Dems should be mopping up
the ring with the GOP contender by now. It ought to
be a first round knockout.
If you're a Dem, I have bad news for you: The
fight's fixed. Once again, the Democrats have found
a way to throw it to the Republicans.
If the GOP has ever been vulnerable to a knock-
out punch, this is the year. The right wing base of
the party hates McCain. To them, he's a bum. A pre-
tender to the belt. Any one of Rush Limbaugh's

dimwitted ditto heads, Sean
* Hannity's bleating sheep, Ann
f f Coulter's yapping lap dogs or
Laura Ingraham's mentally
challenged toadies would hap-
pily jump into the ring and do
the dirty deed if one of their
Si lords or masters told them to
: 7' , do it. McCain's only leading
1 with his chin. One stiff jab and
a couple of hooks from the
Dems and he'd be out for the
Joe Palmer count
- . .. Ain't gonna happen,
though. Once again, the GOP
CUP OF fighter is in his corner waiting
JOE for round one to start and
once again the Dems are beat-
ing the crap out of each other in the dressing room.
By the time the fight starts, the eventual Democratic
contender will be so beat up, sb bloodied, so punch
drunk that McCain's handler Karl Rove - the Don
King of presidential politics - could hop in the ring
and bring home the belt himself. Shoot, they might
even tape Rove's wrists, strap on the Everlasts and
give him his 10 seconds of fame while the world
watches from ringside. Let him do right out front
what he did behind the scenes the past two elec-
Democratic National Committee Chairman
Howard Dean is a tool. Hillary Clinton stands less
chance getting elected president of the United States
than her increasingly obnoxious husband has of


passing a polygraph about all the women he's laid
and the pot he smoked but didn't inhale. These two
people are an oozing sore on the face of the
Democratic Party. She wants to live at 1600
Pennsylvania Avenue again so badly that she has the
audacity to count the eight years she slept there with
the other Clinton as part of her political experience.
There are boxers and there are brawlers. Hillary's
only weapon is the sucker punch, which she would
have us believe is legit so long as she's the only one
who gets to throw it.
Barack Obama held his own for awhile but now
he's getting sucked into the miasma of Clintonian
politics, where lies are truths and dishonor trumps
honor every time. Obama withdraws his name from
the Michigan ballot to honor party sanctions there
and Hillary mocks him for playing fair. Only a
Clinton could do something like that with a straight
face. No wonder most of her appeal is to less educat-
ed voters.
Meanwhile, Big John prances into center ring and
raises his fists in victory. He knows he won't get
bloodied up. By the time his opponent enters the
ring, all that will remain will be to ring the bell and
declare Johnny Mack the winner. The opposition will
have handed him the fight without a fight.
There's a term for fixing a fight. It's called taking
a dive.
Once again, the Democrats are taking a dive. I've
seen enough of this sham. I want my money back.

'Are you my friend benefit dinner a huge success

Donna and I would like to thank you for
all the support that you have given to our fam-
ily over the past five years. When Kristi
passed away it left a huge void in our hearts
that you have been a part of healing with all
your kindness. You have made it possible
for us to look back over our lives with Kristi
in a different light.
We spent most of our lives trying to take
care of Kristi and doing the best that we
could as parents. For the past five years we
have been able to look at her life though the
eyes of her friends and more than ever real-
ize what a special little girl she really was to
our family and community. The way you have

poured out your support in her memory has
solidified our belief in how special it was to
be her parents. Now we find peace in our
fond memories of Kristi and we thank our
God every day for sharing her life with us.
This year's "Are you my friend?" benefit
dinner was a huge success and our family
would like to say thank you. It is beyond any
words that our family could say that would
express our appreciation for your continu-
ous support. When we look back we can see
how God has been able to use Kristi's life to
touch each one of us. We can only hope that
it has been a blessing to you as much as it has
been to us. We believe it was due to the gen-

erous donations that you have made over
the years. As great as the past five years has
been just knowing how God will continue to
use Kristi's life and your generous donations
to help His special children will always bring
warmth to our hearts.
Each year we leave with the greatest feel-
ing that two parents could ever have. It makes
our hearts swell with gratitude to have so
many friends, especially when that was
Kristi's biggest desire in life. So once again
we would like to simply say thank you from
the truest meaning of the words.

Lost is found reason to celebrate

We all lose things every day. The art of
losing isn't hard to master. Some losses are
small and predictable: car keys, glasses and
phone numbers. Some losses are bigger and
scarier, like energy, time, focus, money and,
sadly, relationships.
But with the agony of loss comes the joy
of finding. Come to think of it, is there any-
thing more delightful than finding some-
thing that you have lost? It is almost like get-
ting a present. Losing things is crazy
making. It keeps you awake at night. It
makes you retrace your steps and, even,
make calls asking about the missing item.
Recently, I shared some time with a
friend at a busy registration desk. The day
went well and we were getting ready to
"Have you seen my watch?" she asked as
we cleaned up.
A lost watch. What could be worse? We
all have a watch we wear and depend on.
Many of us have watches that have special
significance. Perhaps, a gift for a special
occasion or a reward for a job well done. We
looked around and retraced our steps.
Suddenly someone stopped me and held up
a watch. Did I know who it might belong to?
I did, of course. Evidently, it had slipped off
her wrist and someone found it in the mid-
dle of a busy walkway. A happy ending to at
least one lost story.

Big Guy will tell
* you how much I hate
to lose things. It
1 ' seems to happen
more and more.
., . Uy It can be glasses, a
i purse or car keys.
Usually the searches
,. . * are short. The long
*. - searches are the most
frustrating. You know
Dickie Ande the ones that go on
DickieAnderSOn for days and weeks or
- .. .. maybe months. It
FROM THE becomes a puzzle that
rI am determined to
PORCH solve. It becomes a
test of mental acuity.
When is something lost? Just how long
does something have to be missing before it
is really "lost?" Maybe it is not lost, but we
just cannot find it. Five minutes? Ten min-
utes? Long enough to make us become
upset about its absence?
There are strategies. Retrace your steps.
Any change in a regular pattern leads to dis-
aster. Often the lost is within reach - a pen
that has rolled under a computer, a key that
has dropped on the floor, the purse that was
left in the car because of a heavy load from
the grocery store.
I used to travel with a friend and her

answer to all lost things was to summon up
St Anthony, the patron saint of lost things. It
usually worked. She would contact the good
saint and he usually led us to the lost item.
Don't you love the stories about lost
school rings or wedding rings that are
returned years after they have been seem-
ingly lost forever?
There are'things that are really bad to
lose - your purse, a credit card, your pass-
port, the keys to your car and sometimes
even your car in a big shopping center park-
ing lot.
Laundry can produce the biggest frustra-
tions. What is it about things that come in
pairs, mostly socks? Why can't socks come
through a laundry together? It just does not
seem to happen at our house. I am con-
vinced there is something that happens
between washers and dryers that eats socks.
But we all know the errant sock will show
up. Right after you have finally thrown away
the lone ranger.
Why do we celebrate with such glee
when the lost is found? Maybe we have
some sense that, yes, we do have some con-
trol of our busy lives. Finding the lost is
cause for great celebration.
Anyone seen my glasses?

Dickie Anderson is a local writer Check
out her website:

We are not Christ, but we should be Christ-like

Let no man deceive you with vain words.
Because of these things cometh the wrath of
God upon the children of disobedience, so
be ye not therefore partakers with them.
There are times when we have gone
beyond the limits to help someone and it
doesn't matter how much you have done;
sometimes they allow Satan to come
between you because they want to see you
fall from grace, bringing you down to their
level. But thanks be to God, who gives us
the victory.
Because we are children of God, we
know who we are and who our heavenly
father is. In our bloodstream, we are a win-
ner. Have you checked your DNA lately?
Never stoop to someone else's level, forget-
ting who you are and whose you are. You
are a conqueror.
Knowing that whatsoever good things we
do, the same shall we receive of the Lord.
Not with eye service, .but as the servants of
Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.
It's the love of God that allows you to do
whatever you can for someone. That's the
love each and every one should have.
Look much love Christ had for us,

when he stretched forth
his arms wide open,
g saying, "This much." If
-. Christ died for us, why
aren't we willing to die
for someone else? We
are not Christ, but we
should be Christ-like,
willing to do whatever
we can and not worry-
Maybelle ing about what people
Kirkland may say about you.
Why keep worrying
. .* about the past 20 years?
NOW Whatever God says you
AND THEN are, that's what you are
277-3285 today. With Jesus, you
can become whatever
you believe, just have the right image on the
inside. If you belong to the Lord, reverence
him, for everyone who does this has every-
thing they need.
If you want a long, good life, then watch
your tongue. Turn from all known sin and
spend your time in doing good and good will
follow you always.
Itis n!ifr bl'61ed to giv'Qfhai to receiee.

As we continue to give of ourselves, let us
thank God for he gave much more than we
could ever give.

ference scheduled at First Missionary
Baptist Church Saturday morning will be at
New Zion Baptist Church; the evening ses-
sion will be at First Baptist.

FRIDAY, MARCH 21,2008/News-Leader


Easter, new life and the palm of God's hand

"First room to the left," the
guard told me. "Just have a seat
and I'l send him out in a minute."
For me the routine had become a
familiar one. Wait for the electric
lock to click, walk through the
cold steel door and take a seat on
the hard round stool in front of
the window.
As a pastor, visiting the county
jail has always brought me mixed
emotions. On the one hand, I
hate to see anyone living without
their freedoms, but that being
said, I've also seen where people
who were headed for destruction
have actually been saved from it
by going to jail. As a matter of
fact, many of them end up having
a genuine encounter with God.

Such was the
case with the
young man I
was visiting.
As I shift-
ed back and
forth on the
able stool
Rob what life in
jail must real-
Goyette ly be like,
. ... .- suddenly he
pULITrr appeared.
NOTES Dressed in
bright orange
coveralls and with a gentle smile
on his face I could tell he was
glad to see me.

"How are you doing?" I asked
as he sat down on his stool,
which I'm sure was more uncom-
fortable than mine.
"I'm doing good," he said
through the thick glass. "Thanks
for coming to see me."
"It's my privilege," I told him,'
and with that, our visit began.
To my delight, the bulk of
what he wanted to talk about was
the Lord. From questions that he
and other inmates had been
debating, to personal struggles
within his own life, he was like a
sponge soaking up every avail-
able piece of truth he could find.
It was then, while discussing the
scriptures together, that he
remembered a special request

from some of the guys in his cell.
"If it's possible," he said,
"there's a few of them that would
like a Bible."
"I'm sure that won't be a prob-
lem," I told him. "How many do
you think you need?"
"Well, at the moment about
four," he said, "but I'll have to
give you their names so you can
tell the guard who to give them
"OK," I replied, "let me see if
I've got something to write them
As I dug through my pockets
looking for a piece of paper, it did-
n't take long to figure out I didn't
have one. "Well, just give me
their names and I will write them

on my hand," I said. And so he
did. One by one, I wrote them
down as carefully and legibly as I
possibly could.
"Well, I've got to go now," I
told him. "It's been great seeing
you," and with that I lifted my
hand to the glass and he did the
same. "Bless you," I told him.
"You too," he said. "Thanks
again for coming."
"I enjoyed it," I replied as I
waved goodbye and motioned to
the guard that I was ready to go.
As I opened my car door, sat
down and began to transfer the
names that were on my hand to a
piece of paper, suddenly the Lord
began speaking to me. These are
the wonderful words He brought

to mind, found in Isaiah 49:15-16:
"Can a woman forget her sucking
child, that she should not have
compassion on the son of her
womb? Yes, they may forget, yet
will I not forget you. Behold, I
have engraved you on the palms
of my hands."
Isn't it good to know that no
matter where you may be, God
loves you and is for you? As we
celebrate this Easter together, *
may the power of the resurrec-
tion, which brings new life and
hope, meet each one of us right
where we are.

Yulee man dies after

Jacksonville standoff


A 28-year-old Yulee man died
Wednesday after being shot by
police in Jacksonville.
Anthony Alexander D'Atri
reportedly fled to his sister's home
in Jacksonville and held her
hostage after he allegedly threat-
ened his girlfriend and two others
with a gun at his Yulee home.
D'Atri was shot and arrested
at his sister's home on Belle-
meade Boulevard about 5:15 p.m.
Tuesday. He was taken to Shands,
Jacksonville for surgery but died as'
a result of his injuries, according to
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
According to Seagraves, the inci-
dent started at D'Atri's Radio
Avenue home in Yulee.
"The disturbance first occurred
between his girlfriend and her
brother and her brother's son as
they were removing her items from
the residence when he pulled a
handgun out," Seagraves said
Wednesday. "... They had some
kind of verbal dispute there and it
turned physical when the suspect
pulled the handgun out. He put the

gun to one of
their heads, shot
at least five times
into the ground
S'. ,; i 'and told them he
^ was going to kill
As deputies
were on their
D'Atri way to the home
they saw D'Atri
driving away and
turned to apprehend him.
"He actually ran some officers
off the road," Seagraves said.
Deputies followed D'Atri into
Jacksonville where, at first, the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
declined to continue the pursuit so
it was called off, said Seagraves.
D'Atri reportedly wrecked the
Cadillac he was driving and stole
another vehicle from a man who
stopped to offer help, then drove to
his sister's house and "detained his
sister inside at gunpoint," according
to a JSO report, while JSO SWAT
team members surrounded the
"(D'Atri) exited the rear of the
residence with the handgun," the
report said. "At one point (he)
placed the gun barrel in his mouth

... while standing in the rear of
the residence, the suspect dis-
charged the handgun into the
ground, later, while negotiating with
officers, (he) pointed the handgun
toward the direction of the officers
(and) ... was shot by a SWAT offi-
D'Atri was taken to Shands
Jacksonville for surgery, where he
died. Kenneth Jefferson of the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said
Wednesday there was a child in
the home during the hostage situ-
D'Atri previously served five
years in a state prison for a convic-
tion of aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon; he was released in
Had he survived, D'Atri would
have faced charges of aggravated
assault, false imprisonment and
possession of a firearm by a con-
victed felon in Jacksonville and
those same charges in Nassau
County as well as additional
charges of assault on an officer,
fleeing or eluding law enforce-
ment, domestic violence, battery
and improper exhibition of a

Rash of thefts in Hilliard


Police are investigating a series
of thefts of all-terrain vehicles and
a golf cart in the Hilliard area.
Four ATVs and the golf cart
were recovered in a wooded area
near CR 121 and Bay Road, but the
investigation is continuing and
"arrests are expected," according to
a statement issued by Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves.
Seagraves said ATVs are popu-
lar items, frequently targets of theft,
and he advises ATV owners to take
precautions when storing the vehi-
cles, being sure to lock them away

. Adopt A CompanioilTrT9pI"

, T The tfevws-Ledder

when not using them.
"Your best prevention is to store
and lock them out of sight when
not in use," Seagraves said.
Anyone with information on the

thefts is asked to call the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office at 225-5174

Through funds donated by a

A medical


lesson from

I was getting ready to go to
the Concours d'Elegance
a couple of weeks ago,
when I was called to the
emergency room about a gen-
tleman who had broken his
wrist. He was trying to crank
start a 1910 Model T Ford,
when there was a kickback of
the engine. The hand crank
snapped backwards and
whacked across the back of
his wrist, fracturing it.
I did a little research on
this matter and the earliest
description of this injury that I
could find came from Sir G.T.
Beatson, who in 1908 wrote
that "should the chauffeur at
once get his hand disengaged
from the crank, the reverse
revolving crank may inflict a
severe blow on the wrist If
the chauffeur is firmly grasp-
ing the handle with his thumb
underneath it and his knuck-
les upwards, he will be unable
to get his hand away with the
result that it will be forced
downwards with the hand and
bent backwards at the wrist
with very considerable force,
in which fracture may occur."
He could not have
described it better that morn-
ing, a hundred years after his
original description. My
patient did require his wrist to
be initially set and was slated
for surgery.
This type of fracture in
time came to be known as the
chauffer's fracture and most
commonly involved the end of
the distal radius, known as the
radial styloid. This type of
injury is certainly less com-
mon today.
A more commonly seen
type of wrist fracture was orig-
inally described in 1814 by
Abraham Colles. In this type
of break, the unfortunate
patient often has tried to put
their hand out to break their
fall, but the wrist collapses
under the weight, snaps back-
wards and the patient pres-
ents to the ER with an angulat-
ed appearing wrist.
While researching the
above, I came across another
historical lesson that could be
attributed to old cars and
bumpy roads. It seems that in
the mid-1920s, a gentleman
from Canada named David
Mulligan was the only person
of his buddies that had a car.
Therefore, he was the one
constantly driving his friends
all about the countryside to
play golf.
Due to the condition of the
roads and the shock of hold-
ing the steering wheel, he
would tend to hit a poor open-
ing drive. On one particular
morning while playing at St.
Lambert's in Montreal, his
buddies allowed him to hit a
second opening drive and
thus the term "hit a Mulligan"
was born.
The mulligan is apparently
now known anywhere golf is
played. This wide acceptance
is attributed to one of our own
American presidents. It seems
that President Dwight
Eisenhower was playing with
Canadian Prime Minister
Lester Pearson. The story
goes that Eisenhower and
Pearson were paired for a
round of golf at Burning Tree,
a club in Washington.
Eisenhower apparently hit a
beautiful first ball, which was
then followed by the Prime
Minister hitting a lousy first
President Eisenhower was
in a diplomatic mood that
morning and asked if Pearson
would like to take a mulligan,
and from that day on, the term
spread worldwide.

Parker Braves 4-0

The Lady Pirates got their fifth win of the season
Tuesday, a 4-0 shutout over the Terry Parker Braves.
"I'm proud of these girls," said Donnie Fussell,
Fernandina Beach High School softball coach. "They
started 0-7 and played seven ballgames without scor-
ing a run. Now, they've won five of the last nine."
The Lady Pirates scored all four runs in the bottom
of the fifth inning. They had five hits on the night.
Carrington Fussell and Christine Vanderhoof had
two hits apiece and Chelsey Cheshire had one. .
Fussell was also the winning pitcher. She went
the distance, giving up five hits, no walks and no
"To go seven innings and not walk a batter, that's
very pleasing," Coach Fussell said. "I was very pleased
with Carrington throwing strikes. She's a learning
freshman in a junior/senior ballgame."
On Monday, the Lady Pirates suffered a 9-2 loss to
First Coast.
"It was 4-1 through four innings," Coach Fussell
said. "We left 11 runners on base. We didn't get hits
with runners in scoring position. We battled a good
team. We would have stayed with them if we could
have had hits."
Katie McElhaugh pitched the first two innings

Petrova fifth

former champ

in singles draw

The Bausch & Lomb Championships will broad-
cast this year a wealth of talented players and show-
case the notable return of five great former champi-
ons. Newly committed 2006 champion Nadia Petrova
will join former champions Tatiana Golovin (2007),
Lindsay Davenport ('05, '04, 1997), Elena Dementieva
(2003) and Venus Williams (2002) as they face off for
the 2008 Bausch & Lomb Championships title. With
five former champions set in a draw with incredible
talent, this year's tournament is expected to give fans
a week-long look at contentious matchups.
In addition to Petrova, Patty Schnyder, Dinara
Safina, Angnes Szavay, Sybille Bammer, Vera
Zvonareva and Lucie Safarova have all joined the
field, that boasts top players, players on the rise and
fan favorites.
"This year's field will provide tennis fans with
exceptional tennis throughout the week. The depth
and international scope of our field is impressive and
will provide fans with the level of great tennis they
expect from the Bausch & Lomb Championships,"
stated tournament director John Arrix.
The 29th annual Bausch & Lomb Championships
returns to Amelia Island Plantation April 7-13.
As the 2006 champion, Petrova enters the Bausch
& Lomb Championships for her ninth straight year.
In 2007, she saw a breakthrough season, highlighted
by the clenching of her seventh singles title, which
came at Paris. Petrova's 2007 talented season also
included her runner-up title at the Bausch & Lomb,
Championships. For 2008, Petrova's best showing
thus far was the round of 16 at the Australian Open.
Schnyder, No. 12 in the world, will mark her 12th
straight year of playing Amelia's green clay and is a
three-time Bausch & Lomb Championships quarter-
finalist (1999, 2003, '06). She has displayed a sharp
2008 season capturing a semifinal berth at Gold Coast,
a quarterfinal position at Antwerp and, at her most
recent tournament at Bangalore, Schynder left with
the runner-up trophy.
Entering as a 2007 Bausch & Lomb
Championships quarterfinalist, 21-year-old Safina
captured her fifth career singles title at Gold Coast last
year. This year marks Safina's fourth Bausch & Lomb
Championships appearance.
Spotting, anew careetrhigh of'No.17,
Hungarian Szavay, will make her first Bausch & Lomb
Championships appearance. A 2008 Doha quarterfi-
nalist, Bammer returns to the Bausch & Lomb
Championships for the third consecutive year, having
reached the 2007 semifinals.
With five singles titles, Zvonareva enters the 2008
Bausch & Lomb Championships with two 2008 run-
ner-up feats (Hobart, Doha) and one quarterfinal
appearance (Auckland) and a current standing as an
Indian Wells quarterfinalist. She is a two-time Bausch
& Lomb Championships quarterfinalist (2004, '05) and
returns to Amelia Island for her fourth appearance.
In her first and only Bausch & Lomb Champion-
ships appearance, Safarova fought her way to the
2006 semifinals before succumbing to eventual cham-
pion Petrova. Safarova has three singles titles.
The Bausch & Lomb Championships 2008 sin-
gles field will also feature standout and No. 6 Anna
Chakvetadze, No. 10 in the world Marion Bartoli and
No. 14 Nicole Vaidisova. The most up-to-date 2008
Bausch & Lomb Championships singles draw will
be posted later this week on the tournament website,
Tickets for the 2008 Bausch & Lomb Champion-
ships offer fans a variety of week-long seating. General
Admission tickets are available for each session. A
weekend series secures the same seat for the last four
tournament sessions - Friday (day and night),
Saturday and Sunday. Box Seat tickets are the clos-
est seats to the court and secure the same seat for the
duration of the tournament. A limited number of two-
seat, four-seat and six-seat boxes are still available.

Hornets lose 12-inning

battle to West Nassau

Down 3-0, thanks to six errors,
the Yulee Hornets rallied to tie the
West Nassau Warriors Tuesday to
send the game into extra innings.
After 12 innings, Yulee succumbed
to West Nassau 6-5.
"The battle turned to the
mound with Yulee throwing five
pitchers and West Nassau throw-
ing two on the night," said Will
Minor, Yulee High School base-
ball coach.
Buck Marell started the game
for the Hornets. He went six
innings, giving up six hits, strik-
ing out six and giving up no earned
runs. Next up was Andrew Minor,
who gave up two hits in one inning.
Brock Dickinson went the next
three innings, giving up just one hit
while striking out three. Travis
Higgs took his turn, pitching one
inning and throwing to two batters
in the next. He struck out two.
Cory Reynolds pitched the final

one and a third innings. He struck
out one and gave up a hit.
Dickinson went 3-for-6 at the
plate with a pair of doubles and
three RBIs and scored a run. Josh
Cassidy went 2-for-5 and Josh
Kubala was 2-for-4, including a
home run, with one RBI. He
scored twice. Minor and Higgs also
had hits for Yulee.
"I am proud that we battled
back from being down 3-0, but we
have to do a better job of coaching
up these guys to play better
defense," Coach Minor said. "I
think right now it has become a
mental thing that we need to break
them of. Our pitchers have pitched
great (team earned run average
of 0.97), but in our two losses, we
have committed about 12 errors
to give our pitchers not a lot of

the last two batters. Yulee collect-

real proud of them," Coach Fussell
said. "We played good defense.
They dimed us (at home).
"We pitched a freshman against
their senior. It was a good ball-

on two hits and two errors.
"We again carried a lead late
into the game only to give up the
lead and get a loss," Roland said:
"Five out of our six losses have
come after losing a lead in the final
inning. We must work harder to
put teams away by extending our
lead and be able to execute defen-
sively to stay out of big innings.
Not being able to execute in the
small game has cost us on both
sides of the lines.
"I see a lot of positives. Pitching
is more consistent and we contin-

we should be able to put it all

Preserving a difficult past

Zephaniah's wife, Anna, managed the plantation. Anna was purchased by
Kingsley-as a slave in 1806 when she was 13 years old. By 1811, Kingsley
had given Anna and their three children their freedom. Anna continued to
manage the plantation until the mid-1830s when she and her children
moved to Haiti to avoid the harsh racial laws enacted in Florida after its
annexation by the United States. She did, however, later return to Florida
to be near her daughters and grandchildren. She died in Florida in 1870.

sand, dirt, lime and -water that
make up the sturdy slave cabins.
Nearly 200 years ago, enslaved Africans fresh from
the forced voyage of the Middle Passage would-plow
the more than 1,000 acres of the plantation, tilling the
soil for cotton, citrus and sugar cane crops, as well as
for a profit that they themselves would never see.
Today, with the vast majority of the site overgrown
by forest and the remains of 23 of the original 32 slave
cabins still somewhat intact, Kingsley Plantation lives
on as a monument to a time in history that is often dis-
cussed but seldom explored.
In 1998, the very first Kingsley Heritage Celebration
was held in October as a one-day event to honor the
plantation's storied history. This year the celebration
was held in February to coincide with Black History
Aside from a shift on the calendar, the event was
also expanded into a month-long commemoration fea-

ances to storytelling, held each Saturday to highlight

Another magnificent film by
Marc Forster ("Monster's Ball"),
based on the much-loved best
seller about two boys in 1970s
Afghanistan and the lives they go
on to lead. Doesn't depend on
stars, effects or genres, but sim-

A complete mess, about a rev-

cut at Cannes 2006, I was dazed,
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." But now here is the
director's cut, which is 20 minutes
shorter, lops off a couple of char-
acters and a few of the infinite
subplots, and is even more of a
mess. I recommend that director
Richard Kelly keep right on cut-

ukulele pick. Rating: *

shop in a chaotic neighborhood
bustling with similar unauthorized
parts and body joints known as
Willets Point, or the Iron Triangle.
Looking at this immense scrap
heap of corrugated tin roofs, muf-
flers and radial tires, and you
could be in Mumbai or Cairo or
Mexico City. But this is Queens,
N.Y., USA. From Ramin Bahrani,
the director of "Man Push Cart."
Rating: **** (Jim Emerson)
The Year My Parents
Went on Vacation
(Drama. not rated. 105 minutes)
A boy's-eye view of turbulent
Brazil in 1970, the year 12-year-
old Mauro's radical parents go
underground and Brazil wins the
World Cup. Filmmaker Cao
Hamburger's warm film chroni-
cles Mauro's adoption into the
new milieu of a Jewish-Italian
neighborhood in Sao Paulo.
Rating: *** (Bill Stamets)
Under the Same Moon
(Drama. PG-13.109 minutes)
There is a little bit of fairy-tale
moondust sprinkled over this
story of a 9-year-old boy who
runs away from his home in
Mexico to find his mother in Los
Angeles. The story is formulaic
and a little syrupy, but sensitive
performances and skillful story-
telling from writer Ligiah
Villalobos (of "Go Diego Go") and
director Patricia Riggen hold our
interest. Rating: ** ' (Nell
Let's Get Lost
(Documentary. not rated.
119 minutes)

Kingsley Plantation is open seven days a week.
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except on Thanksgiving.
Christmas and New Year's Day. Admission is free.
Also, the plantation house is currently closed for
structural work.
To get there, take A1A (First Coast Highway)

about 13 miles, turn right onto Fort George Road.
Turn left onto,Palmetto Avenue about half a mile
later. Travel 2 miles to the end of Palmetto to
reach Kingsley Plantation.

document this very significant yet very difficult
period of American life
"Most plantation sites around the country are not
still standing today," she said. "But here, we have
entire buildings intact, so people can walk around
the grounds, where the owners and the slaves actu-
ally walked, and they can put themselves into histo-
ry. You can read about slaves and the plantation
period all you want, but it's really hard to visualize
this particular point in time until you actually come
and visit."
Clark also stresses that the Kingsley Plantation
allows for a more open forum for discussions about
race relations because it presents the situation of
the antebellum period of the American South in a

was even a reunion for descendants of some of the
slaves of Kingsley Plantation on Feb. 23.
One of the more historically engaging programs
was hosted Feb. 16 by University of Florida profes-
sor James Davidson.
Davidson, an associate professor of anthropology
and African-American studies, began with a detailed
presentation of some of the recent projects he has
undertaken at Kingsley Plantation. With the assis-
tance of student volunteers from the University of
Florida Historical Archaeological Field School over
the summers of 2006 and 2007, Davidson was able
to recover unique artifacts that help to tell the story
of the slaves and slave owners who inhabited this
plantation more than 100 years ago.
Among the findings were French gunflints,
which indicated to Davidson that each of the 32
slave cabins was purposely issued firearms for pro-
tection and other uses. The remnants of a chicken
sacrifice and its subsequent burial were also discov-
ered beneath the floor of one of the cabins.
According to Davidson, this practice was presum-
ably part of an African religious ceremony.
After the presentation, Davidson led a guided
walk through the grounds of the plantation, detail-
ing its history and describing the way of life for
slaves and wealthy planters alike.
Carol Clark, a park ranger at Kingsley Plantation,
realizes just how important it is to have such a his-
toric monument here in Jacksonville to physically

straightforward way, by letting
the facts of history speak for
themselves through this tangible
window to the past.
"It's important to us that we
portray the history of the planta-
tion without forcing opinions on
people," Clark said. "Our goal is
to educate, so we don't want to
tell them what to think. We want
to keep the perspective that slav-
ery is slavery, and then leave it
up to people to interpret the situa-
tion once they perceive it first-
This plantation tends to bring
the full gambit of emotions out of
. people. Some feel angry, some
enlightened and others spiritual.
But for me as a staff member, my
job is to help to provide a place
where emotions can come out
And this is precisely why
Davidson's research and discov-
eries are so important in the
overall understanding of slavery,
according to Clark.
"The slaves here at Kingsley
Plantation didn't leave behind
diaries or other written records
for us to read," she said. "But
through the objects that Dr.
Davidson recovered, we are able

to give these people a voice. This
is how they are speaking to us,
through these physical expres-
sions. We can gather from the
music and the food and the tradi-
tion of these people, and we can
see how remnants of these things
are still present today."
Fellow ranger Roger Clark
similarly believes that it is
absolutely crucial for the people
who visit Kingsley Plantation to
understand the hardships that
slaves were forced to endure, but
also to appreciate their collective
resolve to overcome the shackles
placed upon them and subse-
quently have an impact on
American society that continues
to resonate to this day.
"We don't sugarcoat anything
here," he said. "We talk about the
atrocities that the slaves here
experienced, but at the same
time we still want to present
these people as human beings.
We want people to realize that
even if a slave owner was consid-
ered benevolent, as (this planta-
tion's primary owner and subse-
quent namesake) Zephaniah
Kingsley was, a slave was still a
slave. They were at the whim of
the planter and could be sold at
any time, and many times fami-
lies were even broken up. But

despite this, a great deal of the
slave culture still permeates
through America today, especial-
ly in music and dance ... I think
many times the struggles of the
slave are unappreciated."
The Kingsley Plantation is
part of the Timucuan Ecological
and Historic Preserve on Fort
George Island.
The area was controlled by
many wealthy property owners
during Florida's plantation peri-
od, the most notable of which
was the aforementioned Kingsley,
who presided over the 1,000-acre
estate from 1814 to 1837.
Kingsley married one of his
slaves, a Senegalese woman
named Anna Madgigine Jai, with
whom he had three children.
When control of Florida was
transferred from Spain to that of
the American colonies in 1821,
the Kingsleys faced a great deal
of scrutiny, as interracial mar-
riage was frowned upon in the
Americas. After the Kingsleys
departed to Haiti several years
later, the plantation went through
several more successions of own-
ership until it was finally named a
state park in 1955.
In 1970 the Kingsley
Plantation was also added to the
National Register of Historic

Places. The planter's house at
Kingsley Plantation is the
longest-standing plantation house
in Florida that is still structurally
Although the grounds of the
Kingsley Plantation have now
been reduced from 1,000 acres to
a mere 60 through the passage of
time and the flourishing of forest,
.it remains one of the most impor-
tant historical sites of its kind
because of the story it tells.
Though these artifacts have beeft
left behind by a group of people
long since gone, their prolonged
endurance and subsequent
restoration continues to send the
message that humanity and
courage can overcome oppres-
sion, as well as the unrelenting
lapse from one era to the next.
The plight of the slaves during
the plantation era can never truly
be understood or felt by the peo-
ple of today's America, but with
the existence of places such as
the Kingsley Plantation, their
struggles and sacrifices can
never be forgotten.
