If you didn’t make it out to the Fernandina Beach Airport last weekend, you missed your opportunity to fly in an airplane for free. The local Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 943 offered flights to kids from ages 8 to 18. The planes went up about 1,000 feet and circled the island for about 45 minutes at 120 knots. Children said they could feel their stomach roll when the planes took off and the roughness of the air as they were flying. Kids were equipped with head sets to hear the pilots’ instructions. They were shown how to maneuver the plane and what the controls in the cockpit do. The local EAA chapter consists of volunteer pilots who donate their time, planes and fuel to help get kids interested in aviation. They have been offering the free flights for 10 years now and it has been a success. Bruce Jones, with the local EAA said there were kids lined up at 8 a.m. on Saturday. A total of 67 kids flew that day as well as some of their parents. “Not a one of them were scared. All the kids were really excited to be there,” Jones said. There were 17 from West Nassau High’s ROTC program and three from Fernandina Beach High’s ROTC program. They offer the rides as part of the Young Eagles program which was developed to welcome young people to the world of aviation. The president and vice president of the local chapter recently bought a plane in order to take it apart and teach kids how to learn to put it back together. The members of the local chapter park cars during the annual car show in Fernandina to raise money for this yearly flying event. If they can afford it, Jones says they will have the event twice a year. EAA is an international aviation membership association founded in 1953. The Young Eagles started in 1992. Local pilots who attended Saturday were Andy Curtin, Tommy Piscitello, Sean McGill, Robert Brown, Mark Agee, Ron Taylor, David Sanders, Brad Wood and Roger Fraser. McGill Aviation donated the fuel. “It’s all about the pilots using the fuel and their planes just for the kids,” Jones said.

New zoning will have negative effects on local Callahan community
Dear Nassau News: I recently received a notice of public hearing (Application No. E10-015) that states the “action requested: conditional use per section 22.03 (G) to establish a private multi-use outdoor recreational facility to include, ATV and other motorized vehicle trails, race track, mud bog, RV & Primitive camp sites and similar and complementary uses such as concessions and outfitting in the Open Rural (OR) zoning district. The 120-acre property is located on the south side of Lem Turner Rd. between Wilbur Jones Rd. and Spring Lake Subdivision, Callahan area.”  The businesses associated with this type of land change use would have many negative effects on our neighborhood including but not limited to:  increased traffic on Lem Turner Road, noise issues, drainage problems and decreased property values. Please contact our County Commissioners and Zoning Board to voice your concerns. The hearing will be May 27 at 7 p.m. at the James S. Page Nassau County Governmental Complex, 96135 Nassau Place in Yulee. J. W. Sharpe Callahan, FL 32011

Faith, like summer, calls us to explore the mystery of our belief
Moving from the lighthearted breeze of spring into the heat of the summer always seems to be a marker for a unique kind of transition that I don’t experience in other seasons. The school year is ending, with classrooms filled with youth whose adrenaline is running high as they await the summer days of freedom from homework. There are yearbooks to be signed and final report cards to be prepared. Students in high schools and colleges and their families are preparing for those once Pastoral in a lifetime graduReflection ation events. I still remember there Rev. Mary was nothing quite Kendrick Moore like my high school graduation. After 12 long years of preparation, I could hardly wait to move my tassel to other side and toss my cap into the air in celebration. After all, we don’t accomplish many other things in our lives that take 12 years to prepare! Even so, an air of both uncertainty and expectation blow through these occasions. With a sigh of relief that one incredible job is complete, you then face the unknown future where all the twists and turns of life can now take you. This season marks passage in many other ways. A child finishes kindergarten and can’t wait to be a big first-grader. Retirees plan a summer hiatus to be near grandchildren. Families everywhere are planning where they want to go and what they want to explore on their summer vacations. Many day to day rituals change, making room for a little more play. For others, what we call the hot “dog days” of summer are good for basking in the sun at the beach or curling up and coccooning inside where it is cooler. I think faith and summer are a good match. Sometimes in our faith, we want to curl up and be embraced by what we have always known as warm and comfortable – the beliefs and rituals of our faith that sustain us and strengthen us and hold us firm. But faith is also something to be explored again and again, each time peeling off another layer of what the mystery of God’s presence in our lives truly means to us. Exploring, when it comes to faith, might mean asking new questions, unearthing new ideas, reading new authors. Or it might mean trying new practices. During one difficult time in my life, I had a friend who had been through a similar experience and I asked her how she coped. I have never forgotten her words – “I try very hard to practice the disciplines that make hope more possible.” Just as practicing the disciplines of reading and math opened our mind to learning in school, faith practices – reading, praying, journaling, caring, serving – open our heart to the depth of God’s love. Take a look at the summer ahead of you. Claim your time for rest and relaxation where you need it, but don’t forget to see what there is to explore. Reconnect with a bit of that childlike spontaneity from summers past – it might be just enough to open a crack that lets in the light of God. Rev. Mary Kendrick Moore is the pastor of New Vision Congregational Church in Yulee, a new church start of the United Church of Christ. For more information, visit www.NewVisionCongregationalChurch.org.

The offshore bite is on fire

Low-fat cole slaw
Asian Cole Slaw
1 package of ready-made slaw 2 packages of ramen noodles, crushed  1 cup of sunflower seeds, without the shells 2/3 cup of white vinegar 2/3 cup of canola oil 1 cup of white sugar 2 tablespoons of cilantro

Lauren Jones Editor

This is a version of a cole slaw without all the fat mayo. It tastes sweet and salty and is perfectly crunchy. To send in your recipes, thoughts, comments and tips, e-mail laurenjones@thenassaunews.com.

Toss the slaw, crushed noodles, seeds and cilantro in a large bowl. Whisk the vinegar, oil and sugar in a separate bowl. Toss in the liquid mixture with the slaw mixture and let sit in the fridge for at least three hours. The ramen noodles become slightly soft, sort of al dente and goes well with the cabbage for a good crunch. You could add seasoned, shredded chicken for a complete meal.

From: Callahan Animal Hospital P.O. Box 1006, Callahan, FL 32011
Our economy has been on a decline for the past year or so. Many of our clients have lost their jobs, been laid off or had their hours cut back. This affects all businesses, as well as our own. To save money, some of our clients have had to cut down on care for their pets, or to go to low cost clinics run by nonprofit (non-tax paying) organizations. To do so, they pay more for gas and spend a great deal of time travelling back and forth to these distant clinics. In order to help our clients, their pets and ourselves, we are going head-to-head against these nonprofits. We will do our best to match any of their prices for surgery, services and products. Call us with your prices from these clinics and we will do our best to match them. Keep it local! Save gas! Save time! Thanks. Walter Swanson, D.V.M. Call 879-3775 Hours: Mon, Tues, Thurs 8-4 p.m. Sat 8-12 p.m. By appointment

Gel or acrylic nails?
First, why place an artificial nail on top of your natural nail? The goal is to beautify the hands. With an artificial nail you can add length, shape, color and appearance vs. the natural nail. Acrylic nails are more popular than gel, but they have been around longer as well. The acrylic nail itself is made from plastic. A mixture of liquid acrylic and acrylic powder is applied to the plastic nail which is then placed on top of the natural nail and Beauty allowed to dry. When applying acrylic nails Tips there is a strong liquid Thomas Hughes polymer smell. Acrylic nails are strong and can last a long time. The removal process is simple when done by a professional. It is best to soak the nails off. Damage is done to the natural nail when acrylics are mechanically removed. A gel nail is a pre-mixed polymer and monomer gel that is first applied to the nail then cured under an ultra violet light. Some gels do not require a light, saving the client time. Gel nails often look more natural and glossy

compared to other types. The curing time is faster. Light cured gels may dry within two minutes. Gel nail application is odorless. Gel nails do not last as long as acrylics. If a gel breaks it may be more difficult to find a qualified technician. Nail polish may not stick as well to a gel. Gel and acrylic nails have similar results. They both make the hands look longer and more slim. They may be painted beautiful colors and designs. Before replacing artificial nails, give your natural nails a few weeks to “breathe.” Remember, the nail cuticle is highly porous so oxygen from time to time is a good thing. A competent nail technician will assess the natural nail’s condition before making a recommendation. As always find someone you can communicate with for best results. Tip: An excellent diet supplement for nails is the vitamin Echinacea. Until then, a smile will remain your best feature! Tom Hughes - Magnasalon.com
