She will start a new painting for the summer class. Jacksonville Public Library is pleased to welcome new Library Director Tim Rogers to the JPL family. Rogers has more than 15 years of experience leading libraries around the country. When the director position became available at JPL a result of the former director retiring Rogers jumped at the opportunity to head the citys award-winning library. He was also drawn to the area by the di-versity, beaches, culture and delicious food, which he said made accepting the position, uprooting from Okla-homa, and moving to Jacksonville a no brainer. Rogers immediate goals for the library include focusing on read-ing and learning readiness for kids, lifelong learning for all ages, and the development of a stronger sense of community.

Adults who were in these courses are now making plans and signing up for summer sched-ules. One such group of adults in Maureen Kirschhofers painting class held a student art exhibit to share their com-pleted artwork, which marked the end of this spring session. e group provided refresh-ments for their guests of friends, family, and sta members. During the class, students and the instructor had critiqued the work during each weekly session and oered suggestions that helped in guiding the paintings to the end resultsSummer learning for adults creativityBy Elaine Omann mail@floridanewsline.comDuring the student exhibit conversa-tions continued about the session, the work completed, and the learning and then turned to talk about summer learning and plans. Most of the students planned to take Kirschhofers course again for an-other eight weeks and had specic ideas of what they wanted to try: possibly a portrait, or abstract, or another image from photos taken during past travels. Lifelong learning becomes part of what many adult learners build into their time. Often relationships are developed and friend-ships continue as in the case of two friends, Sherri Stratton and Sandy Myers, who have been at-tending painting classes together. ey also added an Origami course to their Sandy Myers learned new techniques in Maureen Kirschhofers class. Monday sessions before painting, since they can commute together and provide assistance with medical needs when necessary. It is part of the friendship and relation-ship building. Mara Snyder, who painted Majestic the blue bird, has added a sum-mer course, Women in Islam to her learning. e instructor has written a book on the topic and is a powerful speaker. Snyder has travelled extensively and wanted to learn more about other cultures and parts of the world. She uses many of her travel photos for references in her paintings. e one male in the group is not at-tending this summer session, but plans to use his time to travel to Alaska and collect images for painting. He writes poetry and plans to publish more of his writing. Other painters in the group are plan-ning to develop a new skill or try new approaches. Some have given their paintings to nieces and nephews and want to continue completing work. Gail Staord found the weekly class motivated her to nish a painting in time for the next session. New people have been added to the roster, which brings a dierent dynamic to the group. Learning from others is fun and develops a deeper artistic understanding. Summer is good time to add a new pas-time and OLLI has a summer catalogue available with new options. Visit www. unf.edu/ce/olli for more information. Sherri Stratton has painted gifts for her family. Mara Snyder titled her bluebird Majestic. Painting the background was a new learning for her.

BOGO FREE: Any Size Pizza of Equal or Lesser Value!rrf rrrfntb rfrnt btrf rfntbr with Duval School Board Member, District 7, Lori Hershey Q A Q: Yesterday (April 23), the Duval County School Board selected the semifinalists for the next superintendent. What can you tell us about this process?A: According to our search rm, Hazard Young Attea & Associates, there were more than 70 candidates who expressed interest in this position. Once they were all ltered through the process, the School Board received the applications and considered 26 candidates. From there, we selected six seminalists. Of this top six, Im very condent that with their records and leadership, we will end up with a great superintendent for DCPS.Q: What can you tell us about the candidates?A: is is a good group. If people take the time to investigate, I believe they will be satised with their records and what theyve accomplished in their cur-rent positions. Each candidate has done something signicant and been instru-mental in moving their current school district forward.Q: Can you share any specifics about each candidate?A: One of the characteristics that rose to the top during our community meet-ings was that everyone wanted someone with signicant leadership experience and connection to education. All of these candidates have these. Two of the candidates, Dr. Diana Green (who began her teaching career in Jackson-ville) and Frederick Heid (former chief academic ocer at DCPS) have ties to Jacksonville. Harrison Peters is chief of schools for Hillsborough County Schools in Florida and Green is superin-tendent of Manatee County Schools in Florida. Michael Dunsmore is a super-intendent of schools in North Carolina, Sito Narcisse is chief of schools in the Nashville area and Erick Pruitt is an area superintendent of a large school district in Houston. Q: What is the next step? A: On May 11, the board will hold the initial interviews with the six seminal-ists from 8 a.m. 4 p.m. in the Cline Auditorium (open to the public) before meeting on May 14 to identify the nalists. Interviews with the nalists will be May 16, 17 and 18 and then on May 22 the board will meet to identify the preferred candidate. e plan is for this person to begin work in July. Part of this process will include the 25-mem-ber focus group, which includes three representatives (one of whom is a DCPS employee) from each district. is focus group will also interview the seminal-ist candidates on May 12 at the Schultz Center from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. (open to the public) and then make a recommen-dation to the board. Q: Do you have anything else to share about this process?A: It is important to note that the board has been methodically working on this process since last fall; a lot of work has already been done in advance of this busy month of May. Several of the candidates for superin-tendent were identied by a majority of the board. We were all on the same page and Im excited that were bringing some strong talent to Jacksonville. Also, Id like to say that Dr. Willis has done a phenomenal job as superinten-dent. I believe Duval County Public Schools are better for her leadership. Q: How can our readers contact you?A: ey can email me at HersheyL@ duvalschools.org or call me at (904) 316-3609.Q: What is the latest (as of today, April 23) on the potential sale of JEA?A: ere is becoming a cloud of mis-trust as far as this topic. From the beginning, weve never had a bill in front of the City Council. is has been my problem all along. Now the JEA director has resigned and theyve just appointed an interim director during this period of transparency... or lack thereof. At this time, I think we should be looking at possibly restructuring JEA to meet the competition and provide low rates and additional sources of elec-tricity for customers, but still maintain-ing ownership. I have had more con-stituents tell me they dont support the sale than I have heard about any other controversial issue, including the HRO. We should be focusing on other issues such as sidewalks in Mandarin and e District.Q: What can you tell us about The District?A: is project, which is a develop-ment on the riverfront at the old JEA generating plant, is moving forward. It received unanimous approval from the Downtown Investment Authority and will be up for a vote in the City Council probably in mid-June. ere seems to be a good amount of support. When completed, e District proposes to be a city within a city and contain 1,170 residential units; 200,000 square feet of oce space; 200,000 square feet of retail; a 3.5 acre riverfront park as an extension of the Southbank Riverwalk; a 125 slip marina; and a Marriott hotel. Its taken several years of work to get to this point, but thats how long a project of this magnitude requires.Q: Do you have any results from the City of Jacksonvilles tire buyback program?A: is event was held at EverBank Field on March 24 in an eort to com-bat blight. A total of 22,508 tires were dropped o and $43,602 was paid out to residents who brought them in. Ad-ditionally, 3,376 snipe signs were turned in and $1,666 was paid out for them. I would say this was a successful day. is is an ongoing program and we will have additional events in the future.Q: Do you have anything else to share?A: Id like to label this one Did you know? Did you know that October 1 will be the 50th anniversary of consoli-dated Jacksonville? ere is a celebration planned. In fact, the JSO ocers are already wearing badges that acknowl-edge this milestone.Q: What is the best way for our readers to contact you?A: ey can email me at THazouri@coj. net or call (904) 630-1396. e tradition of Mothers Day in the United States dates back more than a century to 1908, when West Virginia native Anna Jarvis held a memorial service to honor her mother, who had passed away three years earlier, and all mothers in Graf-ton, W.V. Mothers Day would ultimately become a national holiday in the United States in 1914, thanks in large part to Jarvis campaigning. As Jarvis, who never married and never had children of her own, grew old, she criticized Mothers Day as overly commercial, even trying to have it removed from the calendar. ose eorts failed, and Mothers Day remains popular now, more than 100 years after the idea for it was con-ceived. is year, Mothers Day is celebrated on May 13.Did yo know?

Douglas Anderson student earns spot on national baton twirling teamBy Christina Lopez mail@floridanewsline.comAmanda Trujillo, a 16-year-old junior at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, recently traveled to Indiana for the U.S. Trials in the sport of baton twirling and was selected to be a member of Team USA, which will compete in the world championships in Orlando in August. Baton twirling incorporates elements of many Olympic sports, including gym-nastics and rhythmic gymnastics, dance, gymnastics, and extreme coordination. Trujillo participated in her rst national competition at the age of three. At the age of 12, she won numerous national titles, and became one of the youngest twirlers in the U.S. to com-pete at the World Championships. Two years later, she earned the gold medal for Junior Artistic Twirl in Almere, Canada. Last year, Trujillo traveled to Croatia to compete at the International Cup, receiving the bronze medal in the 16-year age group. Ive been training vigorously to try to qualify for a spot on Team USA, and my hard work paid o, Trujillo said. Its quite an honor to represent my country in the world championships. When asked how she incorporates a normal high school experience into a life of national competitions, Trujillo notes that Douglas Anderson has aided her career. e dance training at Douglas Ander-son has helped me grow in my artistic abilities and technique, which are important aspects of baton twirling, said Trujillo. At DA, I have learned to multi-task and push myself to be the best that I can be, in both in dance and baton-twirling. Douglas Anderson has allowed me to showcase the sport Im proud to be a part of, and grow as a person in my everyday life. Photo courtesy Amanda TrujilloAmanda Trujillo

He is an active member of Toastmasters. He is a man who is involved with community and leader-ship training, bringing changes to organizations in which he is involved and as a millennial he thinks tech-nology is key to change. I moved to Jacksonville in 2008 from India to work as a consultant for an IT services rm, esingh said. I am currently an independent Agile and Project Management consultant operating through my own corpora-tion Jaxhub. I am married to my wife Vrushali, who is an R&D engineer at Johnson & Johnson Vision care and together we have two daughters who show interest in STEM at Bright Horizons.1. How long have you lived in the Southside area and what do you find most interesting about this area?I have lived in the Southside area since 2008. I like this area because of its proximity to downtown, beaches and Town Center. I love that I dont have to drive far to nd places to eat or things to do. We own a home in the area. 2. How are you involved in the community? At present I am involved with the Toastmasters organization as a club member and a District Guide/ Ambassador for the new educational Program Pathways. I also volunteer for a DCbased business advocacy non-prot as a strategic consultant. I highly encour-age people to join Toastmasters; there are several leadership opportunities within Toastmasters that can enable you to excel in your professional life while learning to become a better speaker. 3. Why is Toastmasters influential to you and your lifes work and goals?Toastmasters has played a pivotal role in honing my communication and leader-ship skills. I have been able to transi-tion from a being programmer to a consultant in part because of the skills I gained through Toastmasters. My goal is to be the best in what I do, and eventu-ally expand my business to oer services to clients around the city. 4. What would you like to share with the readers?We live in a wonderful city and com-munity. We should strive to better the community as a whole by joining organizations that serve the community. We cant always expect elected leaders to do everything. We should identify opportunities where we can contribute to the community and in turn are able to inuence others. Jacksonville is called the Bold City. I would like it see it become Bolder.5. What hobbies or interests do you have?In my free time I enjoy practicing ball-room dancing with my wife. We used to compete in dance competitions before we had kids and we also won four titles at the USA Dance National Amateur ballroom championship in 2014 held at Baltimore, Md. We hope to compete again, ngers crossed. Visit www.toastmasters.org/Find-aClub/00000546-southside-club for more information about the Southside Toast-masters Club. The Pantry RaidersTry your hand at homemade salsa for Cinco de Mayo By NewsLine Sta mail@floridanewsline.comIn a large bowl, combine oil, lime juice and cilantro. Add tomatoes, corn and jalapeno to taste. Mix well until corn mixture is well coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour or up to 2 days. Tip: In place of the corn kernels, you can used canned corn, drained; frozen corn, thawed; or corn from the cob, cooked on the stove top. For a smoky flavor, use corn grilled on the barbecue grill. Fiery Corn Salsa(Makes 2 cups)Tortilla chips just arent the same without salsa, a spicy sauce that has many variations. Many people enjoy store-bought salsa, but home chefs and foodies might want to try their hands at homemade salsa, which can be just as delicious as a restaurant-quality variety. If you like your salsa to come with a little extra kick, consider the following recipe for Fiery Corn Salsa from Kelley Cleary Coeens 00 Easy Mexican Recipes (Robert Rose). cup olive oil 3 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice 2 tsp. minced fresh cilantro 3 tomatoes, seeded and diced 1 cups corn kernels 2 to 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced Salt and freshly ground black pepper Photo courtesy MetroCreativeFiery Corn Salsa

Page 8 | SouthsideNewsLine May 2018 rf nfnf n tffbtfff ffnnrffnft nf ft e premise is simple down on his luck Nomax is lonely and drunk and is visited by ve men who jump out of an old timey radio to perform songs by R&B pioneer Louis Jordan in this revue at Alhambra eatre and Dining entitled Five Guys Named Moe. Part conscience and part advisors, the ve singers, all named Moe, appear to an increasingly accepting and collaborative Nomax (Jereme Raickett). e strength of this show is the vocal talent of the ve guys Big Moe (Byron Glenn Willis), No Moe (Damien De-Shaun Smith), Little Moe (David Berry), Eat Moe (Rendell Anthony DeBose), and Four-Eyed Moe (Darryl Reuben Hall) and the infectious quality of Jordans music. (Raickett, as Nomax, is equally gifted.) A true ensemble eort, the vocals are so strong it is dicult to single out any member of the cast. e ve Moes and Nomax have an enjoyable chemistry that charms early on, while their voices blend into smooth harmonies. From the hoedown notes of Safe, Sane and Single to the island beat of Push Ka Pi Shi Pie, Jordans music runs the gamut of musical styles. Saturday Night Fish Fry is even acknowledged to be a precursor to modern rap music. Is You Is or Is Your Aint my Baby? is probably the revues best known hit, but it doesnt matter as the Moes handle each song and genre with jubilant energy. e accompanying jazz band, which remains inside the oversized old timey radio on the stage due to some creative lighting and placement of an opaque curtain, is terric. Featured are Anthony Felton on keyboards, Chanel Miller on drums, Brooks Clarke on electric bass, Paul Jackson on trumpet, Alex Hernandez on reed and Nicholas Carter on trombone. Like the singers, they switch musical styles eortlessly. Choreography by James Kinney is fast paced and entertaining. All the Moes have their individual personalities and dance and act accordingly. From Little Moe in his shiny shoes mugging for the audience to Eat Moe wondering where his next meal is coming from, there is a lot to keep ones attention. An audience participation conga line concludes the rst act and the party continues into the cabaret featured in the second act. Chef DeJuan Roy has once again created a special menu inspired by the show. Diners have the option of Moes Salad or Field Pea Soup for the rst course and then Turkey Meatloaf, Saturday Night Fish Fry, Smoked Boston Butt or Curry Sweet Potato Stew for an entree. Save room for delicious Blueberry Pie Pockets or a Mini Pistachio Bundt Cake for dessert. Five Guys Named Moe will be on stage at Alhambra eatre and Dining through May 6.

Have you ever thought to yourself, If I could just stop eating ____, I could lose a few pounds? is is a thought that is quite common when trying to change poor eating habits. Even though some of us are aware of our not-so-healthy eating patterns, they can still be very dicult to change and we may not be ready for true change. Most individuals blame it on their lack of self-discipline, but this can be discouraging and steer us away from making healthier choices. Just as we form poor eating habits, we can transi-tion these into great, healthy habits with ve simple small steps: Determine your readiness for change. Just because you feel you need or should change a habit, are you truly ready to make this nutrition change? ink SMART. Being SMART (Spe-cic, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely) in what habit you want to change. Focus on one habit and be realistic of what you think you can ac-complish. Simple is key. Rather than trying to change a million behaviors at once, focus on just one. Make specic actions for change.Nutrition Check: Improving poor eating habitsBy Kristen Hicks-Roof, Ph.D., RDN, LDN and Paige Chain mail@floridanewsline.comSetup an environment for change. Work with family and friends to achieve similar goals. is support system is motivating to continue to change and build healthier habits. Remove tempt-ing foods from your kitchen, fridge and drawers. Reward yourself. Once you have set a simple SMART goal, check back in a short period (few weeks to months) to check your progress. A reward can be small (personal time) or large (new kitchen gadget); nd something that motivates you! At rst, it may not be easy; you are likely going to face challenges in ac-complishing your goal. Write down why this behavior change is important to you and what outcomes you would like to see. Share your motivations and goals with your family and friends to help you stay on track if you are struggling. Lastly, record your progress. On days that may be dicult, you can look at how far you have come. At times, you may feel like you have failed; however, stay focused and keep trying to change this habit. Kristen Hicks-Roof PhD, RD, LD is an Assistant Professor, Department of Nutri-tion and Dietetics at the Brooks College of Health, University of North Florida.

Brain folds Gardening By Master Gardener Lesley Arrandale mail@floridanewsline.comSummer is coming Taking a look at the Climate Prediction Center on the NOAA website (http:// www.cpc.noaa.gov/), it seems we may escape drought conditions, at least for the next couple of months. Unfortunately, also according to NOAA, we are likely to experience higher than normal tempera-tures. For gardeners, the ramications are that we need to pay particular attention to our yards and gardens water needs, since our usually sandy soils allow for quick drain-age, and higher temperatures cause faster evaporation. If you havent yet done so, check out your system, whether you have in-ground sprinklers, soaker hoses, drip irrigation, or a gravity-fed water barrel, to ensure that your yard is getting adequate water. If you have recently installed new beds they may not be getting the optimum amount of water if you are relying on a system that was set up to irrigate grass. Converting sprinkler systems in plant beds to soaker or drip systems saves water by delivering it more directly to the roots of plants. Check out http://gardeningsolu-tions.ifas.u.edu/care/irrigation/ for vari-ous irrigation methods and applications. Since almost 50 percent of potable water used in Florida is used in the landscape, its particularly important to determine if you are applying the right amount of water to your lawn and arent applying too much to plant beds. e Extension Master Gardener phone service (904-255-7450) has recently been getting enquiries from homeowners about a leafspot they are seeing on Japanese privet (Ligustrum japonicum). It is most likely a species of Cercospora fungus, and can be treated with suitable fungicides. is article describes the appearance of the leafspot, and suggests treatments: https:// tinyurl.com/ydhmvv3e. For any leafspot problem it helps to rake up and dispose of fallen leaves to reduce the fungus spores spreading. As summer progresses, increasing hu-midity is usually followed by increases in disease and insect problems, but it is important to make sure to identify what is wrong before applying a remedy. In the case of lawns, treating for fungus when the specic disease hasnt been identi-ed is both pointless and harmful the problem will only get worse. And even if the diagnosis is clear, the timing and mode of application of fungicides can be tricky to get right, and a reputable lawn and yard service may be better able to tackle it (see http://edis.ifas.u.edu/pp154). If you wish to deal with it yourself, but are unsure of the diagnosis, take a bagged sample of the diseased plant material, including all parts that show signs of disease, not just the leaves, to the Extension service at 1010 N. McDu. If its something dicult to diagnose, the University of Florida has a service to identify plant diseases (http:// edis.ifas.u.edu/sr007). Insects should also be correctly identied, since so many are actually benecial pred-ators of the insects which eat our plants. (More than 90 percent of the insects in our landscapes are good guys: http://edis. ifas.u.edu/in120). e larvae of lady beetles (ladybugs) are one example, as they look nothing like the adults, but both life stages eat pesky aphids (see https://tinyurl. com/bqroxn7). Unfortunately the larvae of one species of lady beetle can be mistaken for mealybugs, which could make them a target for the insecticide spray, to the real detriment of the garden. If you enjoy learning about dierent aspect of gardening, you may appreciate a BBC podcast (from the UK) called Gar-deners Question Time. It has been broad-cast weekly since 1947, from dierent towns, cities, and inspiring gardens across the British Isles. e format is simple: a panel of experts answers questions from the audience. If it sounds a little dry, I can assure you thats not the case, although British humor can be a little dierent... Closer to home, for a little lighter read-ing, including a whole host of timely tips, check out the May-June issue of A New Leaf: https://tinyurl.com/y9yfxd89, avail-able in early May.
