Testing the waters at the YMCA pool..
Jenny Adams of Macclenny introduces one-year-old Tucker to the YMCA pool on
a hot afternoon last week. Ms. Adams, who had just joined the YMCA, was be-
ing given a tour of the facilities by director Anna Lewis and decided to let baby
Tucker test the water. He stuck one tentative foot in the water, then proceeded
to begin kicking enthusiastically perhaps a budding olympic swim cham-
pion. The pool, which offers water aerobics and swim classes, next Monday be-
gins a new schedule of extended hours for non-member swimming this season.

Traffic impact likely the roadblock with the Cedar Creek plan
BY ANDREW BARE
Planning officials said this week that
it would likely be another eight months
before a proposed retirement communi-
ty northwest of Glen St. Mary is either
approved or shot down.
Ed Lehmann, the director of planning
and zoning for the Northeast Florida
Regional Council in Jacksonville, said
in a telephone interview Monday that
the proposed 3240- acre Cedar Creek
retirement community was still in the
early stages of review. The NFRC, an
advisory committee composed of repre-
sentatives from seven Northeast Flori-
da counties, has sent the Miami-based
Adrian Development Group a lengthy
list of possible concerns.
Chief among those, Mr. Lehmann
and Baker County planning director Ed
Preston said, is the community's poten-
tial impact on local traffic. Mr. Lehm-
ann said Adrian and the county will
have to develop a plan showing how the
retirement community would integrate
into the local traffic situation. That
could prove complicated. Howev-
er, Mr. Lehmann emphasized that
the issues looming before Adrian
were not unique to the retirement
"Typically in every project
there's additional information
that's needed," he said.
The ball is now in Adrian's
court to respond. By state law, this re-
view works in two stages. After the
NFRC receives the proposal, it returns
its initial impressions to the developer.
The developer attempts to address the
concerns and sends its response to the
NFRC. The council then considers the
reply, and issues its second report.
The developer has one more chance
to consider objections and concerns.
One final time they issue a reply to the
planning council, which then votes on
.which way to advise Baker County.
Genevieve Houston, Adrian's proj-
ect manager, did not return a call seek-
ing comment. But Tony Robbins, a
Jacksonville-based consultant working
for the development group, said Adrian
would respond to the council's com-
ments sometime this week.
Once the county has the council's
recommendations, it will hold a public
hearing and give a final yes or no
vote. The county could also issue
a tentative yes, where it approves
the'development with conditions.
Mr. Lehmann said the process has
k about eight more months to run.
The approval process for Adri-
an's development of regional im-
pact, or DRI, is two-tiered. Even if
the DRI itself receives a thumbs-
up, Cedar Creek would still need to
obtain the state and county's approval
for an amendment to Baker County's
comprehensive plan. By law, Florida
Department of Community Affairs also
gets a chance to review and comment
on the proposed amendment.
DCA provided such review and com-
mentary in a memorandum dated May
25. In that report, the agency said the
proposed plan amendment exhibited
several factors associated with urban
sprawl. According to the report, the
amendment encourages development
that exceeds demonstrated need, does
not maximize use of existing public
facilities and services, discourages the
redevelopment of existing communities
and is not adequately linked with the
rest of the county.
DCA also raised concerns about nat-
ural resources in the area, as well as the
availability of public utilities. Mr. Rob-
bins said none of the concerns raised

Glen tract rezoned
with PUD provision
In the latest of a series of very
brief monthly meetings, the Glen
St. Mary Town Council voted
the evening of July 17 to rezone
six plat blocks off US 90 at the
east town limits from residential
to general commercial.
The move is one more step to
pave the way for eventual sale of
the 19.5 acres on the north side
of US 90 from the Ray Gatlin
family for a shopping center or
other commercial enterprise.
The vote followed a public
hearing that drew no response
and the ordinance passed 4-0.
Councilman Perry Hays was ab-
The re-zoning was delayed
a month by mutual agreement
of the town and owner Florida
Green Partners (Ray Gatlin) to
include a provision .requiring a
PUD (planned urban develop-
ment). That way, Glen St. Mary
retains control over special de-
velopment details of any eventu-
al use. The Macclenny Commis-
sion enacted similar ordinances
in the past year.
The provision makes way for
a more finely tuned development
plan, as opposed to a blanket
Formulation of a policy on
minimum residential square
footage was delayed another
month after town attorney Joel
Foreman sought more time to
prepare an opinion memoran-
dum. He had been asked to study
the matter last month by Mayor
Juanice Padgett, who expressed
concern then and at the July
meeting that the minimum be set
at a high enough level to insure
higher values and adequate liv-
"We don't want a whole town
with 1000 square-foot houses,"
said the mayor.
She said plans for one such
unit have been submitted to
the town for approval, and
it will await Mr. Foreman's
memo, probably before the Au-
gust meeting. The proposal is
for a 1000 square foot house.
All building plans inside Glen
St. Mary are approved by Ms.
Padgett before being sent on to
the county building department.
The council voted without dis-
sent to transfer title to the county
emergency services department
on both the recently replaced fire
engine and an aging rescue unit
that for years as been used as a
quick response fire vehicle.

The commission unani-
mously agreed to a request from
Mike Evans, representing the
Greystone Subdivision just east
of Glen St. Mary off US, 90, for
an extension to December, 2008,
for improvements he had earlier
agreed to make. The county is
involved in a bond agreement
with Greystone, which has hit
several speed bumps during
its development. At present, a
slump in the housing market has
made it difficult for Greystone
to find builders.
"We are working with several
different builders," Mr. Evans
said. "We're not abandoning
our subdivision. We will main-
tain our subdivision. We're still
The commissioner unani-
mously consented to a $290,000
bid from Adrian Development
Group to purchase 20 acres off
US 90 from the county. Baker
County had originally bought
the land intending to build base-
ball fields on it for Little Leagu-
ers. However, wetlands on the
property made that impractical,
and the county advertised the
land for two weeks.
Adrian's was the only bid.
The tract is adjacent to the de-
veloper's 3240-acre proposed
Cedar Creek project, currently
in the preliminary review stage.
Mr. Cone also announced
that a new skate park, scheduled
to open in August on property
belonging to the health depart-
ment, was still without an oper-
ator. According to the manager,
the county advertised for bids to
run' thE' park and certain conces-
sion and equipment stands, but
received no offers.
And the commissioners set
August 2 and August 7 for
public budget workshops. The
county is facing potentially dif-
ficult cuts, fueled mostly by the
expected increase in Homestead
Exemption and a resulting drop
in local revenue.
The workshop on August 2
is scheduled for 4:00 pm. The
meeting on August 7 is at 3:00
for 4-H camp
Sign up now for the upcoming
4-H Crafty Camper Day Camp to
be held August 6-10 for children
8 and older.
Campers will learn to sew and
create fun and educational crafts.
There is a $40 registration fee per
child and enrollment is limited to
the first 15 students. Deadline to
register is July 30.
Registration packets are avail-
able at the Baker County Exten-
sion Office located in the ag cen-

Baker County approves both the

amendment, there would still
be hurdles to clear. Both would

The proposed retirement com-
munity north of US 90 between
Glen and Margaretta has been
controversial ever since it first
came before the Baker County
Commission in November of
2006. At that meeting, commis-
sioners voted against transmit-
ting the proposal to the state.
But on March 19., the commis-
sion unanimously agreed to send
the DRI to the state, persuaded
in part by the way Adrian had
managed to sway nearby resi-
dents, who had initially opposed
the retirement community. -,
Adrian plans to build out the
development over a decade or
so, with an eventual 7000 resi-
dential units, a commercial cen-
ter and various amenities.

The fundamental principle of
persuasive writing is this: the
writer has an opinion and he
tries to persuade the reader to
adopt that opinion. So a column
without an opinion usually isn't
effective. But I beg your indul-
gence in this.
As part of my job, I attend
numerous government meet-
ings; county commission, city
commission, code enforcement.
They have a number of things
in common, not the least of
which is the fact that they tend
to be soul-crushingly boring.
More basic, however, is that all
of these meetings start with a
prayer. And I'm not sure what I
think about that.
The practice seems, on one
level, to fly in the face of -the
concept of separation of church
and state. These are the represen-
tatives of lqcal government, and
they're on the job. When they're
working, it seems inappropriate
to pull God into the public realm
in such a way.
This would be easier to swal-
low if the prayers were non-
specific requests for advice and
guidance from an unnamed de-
ity. However, they're aimed at
.the Christian god.
"We love you and praise
you in the name of Jesus," was
how Commissioner Gordon
Crews wrapped up the prayer
at Monday's county commis-
sion meeting. I can't help but
wonder how a non-Christian in
attendance might think about
his or her chances of receiving a
fair hearing before such a board.
The statement of this prayer at
the beginning of a governmental
meeting implies that the contents
of the prayer represent a kind of
societal norm for Baker County.
Intended or not, the message is
that Christianity is the approved
religiofi in this locale. And that's
a dangerous situation.
After hearing the prayer, is a
non-Christian in attendance go-
ing to feel confident about his
ability to receive a fair audience
with the commission? Whether
or not the commissioners would
discriminate in any way against
such a. person is almost irrele-
vant. If that prayer has a chilling
effect on a citizen, great harm
has been done.
So no, it's probably not a
good idea for these commissions
to begin with a prayer.
And yet, practical effects
seem minimal. Baker County
simply isn't the most religiously
diverse community, so concerns
over offending non-Christians
seem more theoretical than any-
And when you boil the situ-
ation down to its essence, what
you have is a commission pray-
ing to a higher power for the gift
of wisdom. This isn't religious
The point, I suppose, is that
when religion and government
become intertwined, there are
seldom easy answers. Politics
and religion inspire more pas-
sion in people than perhaps any
other two topics. Bringing them
together leads inevitably to con-
So excuse me if I find myself
confused by this issue.
A recent wire service story
originating from Los Angeles
noted that most employers are
hesitant to hire people with no-
ticeable tattoos and body pierc-
The same story also pointed
out that many large companies
- Wal-Mart among them -
have been forced to take another
look at the ban on body art be-
cause "no tolerance" policies are
greatly decreasing the pool of
That's because almost half
of people 21-32 years old in the
United States today have tattoos.
.The story reminded me of a
cartoon we posted on the wall
here at the newspaper several
years ago. It depicted a stoned-
out, disheveled, youthful job
applicant seated across the desk
from a traditionally dressed per-
sonnel manager, who had a piece
of paper in his hand marked "re-
"That's okay," the manager
is saying. "I'll just attach this to
your nose ring."
Anyone who has flown lately
or strolled around a shopping
mall has no doubt noticed the
general decline in personal ap-
pearance standards. Tattoos and
body piercing are just part of
the problem. You got the baggy
pants pulled down below the
waist; you got the pre-teen girls
wearing styles that belong on
hookers plying the Las Vegas
strip; you got your "gangsta" at-
tire that, though it originated in
the 'hood with the black broth-
ers, seems now to attract more of
the white kids.
Before all the tattoo freaks
out there bombard me with e-
mails and letters, I should say
I don't have anything against
them per se. Nose rings and
body piercing, well that's anoth-
er matter. For every adornment
High praise for hospice
Several months before cancer
took my husband's life, I enlist-
ed the invaluable resources of
Northeast Florida Community
Hospice. And, while we were
blessed to have solid, loving
support from family, church and
friends; I cannot imagine what
this period of our lives would
have been like without hospice.
From the very first visit it was
plain that their primary concern
was, of course, for his comfort,
care and dignity, but the services
offered did not stop with him.
This organization realizes that
it is dealing with more than just
one individual who happens to
be near the end of his or her life.
Each patient's disease, cir-
cumstance and family setting is
unique and treated accordingly.
The physicians, nurses, social
workers and volunteers from
hospice are well versed in what
they do. On the rare occasion
that a situation arose that was be-
yond their scope of practice, they
knew exactly where to direct us.
Nobody wants to face their
own mortality or the fact that
their loved ones will leave them
one day, but that's not reality. We
have to accept what is and make
the best choices we can for what-
ever time we have left on this
My husband arid I could not
have made a better choice than
having Northeast Florida Com-
munity Hospice to take over his
care. It is my firm belief that not
only did they drastically improve
his quality of life, they helped to
extend it by many months. For
this, and so much more, I am for-

rings may be
of that kind, you can deduct ten
IQ points right off the bat, and
conclude the person made a con-
scious effort to make his or her-
self look stupid. It works.
Tattooing is an ancient aft.
There's something in the human
psyche that drives us to imprint
images on our skin. It's a form of
identity statement, probably fu-
eled by our urge to "belong" to
something or someone.
I'm not sure about today, see-
ing as how many tattoos seem
designed to set one apart from
everyone else. Why else would
someone actually pay to have
spider webs weave up their neck
and face? Or snakes curling up
their arms to, I guess, their arm
If you want a tattoo, fine (I've
revised an earlier "no tolerance"
position upon learning three of
our children have them). The
sensible approach is, since the
skin is your body's largest organ,
pick a place that you can easily
cover up for occasions like, say,
a job interview or your wedding
Don't get the spiders up the
side of your face and anticipate a
wide-open job market.
As for the body piercing, at
least it can be removed for oc-
casions like those mentioned
above, or if you're about to meet
your favorite girlfriend's parents.
Of the two tattoos and pierc-
ing the latter makes you look
more stupid, hands down, except
if you opt for the spider option.
My generation has been grad-
ually climatized to the "dumbed
down" look now accepted in
public today. We've seen the
people getting on our airplane
dressed in what could easily pass
for pajamas and flip-flops; we've
seen the pregnant girls who think
we're just dying to see their bel-
lies; we're excited about the "hip-
hop" ensemble designed to make
you look like you really don't
care what people think when
we know you very much do.
My hope is this is a "pen-
dulum" event; that styles will
swing back again and people
will start to care what they look
like. Trends are trends, and we'll
.always have people who want
to be different. Ink yourself up,
punch holes in your skin and get
out that purple hair dye.
Go for it. Just don't expect to

Local attorney helps
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
When city of Macclenny at-
torney Frank Maloney was
asked to help coordinate a joint
comparative law seminar be-
tween members of the Florida
Bar Association and the Irish
Bar Council, he jumped at the
Florida Bar president Hank
Coxe and University of Florida
law professor Michael Olexa
requested that the Macclenny
attorney head up coordination
Attorney Maloney, who is
proud of his Celtic heritage, con-
sidered the request an honor.
"I was extremely flattered and
honored to be asked," said Mr.
Maloney, who has been Mac-
clenny's attorney since 1981 and
maintains a private law practice
in Baker County.
According to Maloney, the
seminar was an opportunity to
expose members of the Florida
Bar to the cultural differences
of a European legal system, and

Thirty five attorneys partici-

The Florida Bar sponsored an
evening reception and banquet

traditional Irish music.
For the local attorney, a side

midday on July 11 when they
were caught allegedly stealing
a refrigerator and other property
from a storage building belong:
ing to Scott Mandel at Trailridge
east of Macclenny off US 90.
Mr. Mandel said he drove up
to find a 1994 Toyota pickup
parked outside the building, and
used his Ford pickup to block its
exit. He told Deputy Harold Tay-
lor that Marc Martinez, 19, was
at the wheel and his 16-year-old
brother was the sole passenger.
In a subsequent interview, the
two admitted to breaking into the
building once before, and took
Investigator Steve Harvey to a
residence near Bryceville where
a tiller was recovered.
The brothers attempted to take
$1545 worth of property dur-
ing the second visit, including a
$1000 refrigerator, window air
conditioner and fishing equip-

theft, and the juvenile suspect
was released to a parent. They

tools taken from a garage at the
residence of Richard Moody off
Plantation Rd. south of Glen St.
Mr. M11ood reported the crime
the morning of July 9 and told
police he believes Justin Pearce,
23, and Larry Rhoden, 21, both
of Macclenny, were responsible.
They attended a party hosted by
the victim's son while he was
out of town, and the son claims
the suspects were seen inside the
garage several times during the
Mr. Moody also told Deputy
3en Anderson the Pearce suspect
parked a vehicle next to the ga-,
rage. The ignition on a golf cart
'vas damaged and the vehicle
overturned, and Deputy Ander-

Two pitt bull puppies chained
in the yard of Kevin Cohen off

ited away by a male suspect the
afternoon of July 15.
Neighbor Aaron Franck said
he surprised the black male, de-
scribed as tall with an athletic
build and wearing blue jeans and
a white t-shirt, and the suspect
took off running. He dropped
one of the dogs and kept the oth-
er as he raced north on CR 229

County changes rule
on 'family lot' transfers
The Baker County Commis-
sion on Monday unanimously
approved changes to the family
lot ordinances that it said would
.make the process easier for
home owners desiring to turn
land over to family members.
"This amendment will im-
prove the capability of turning
[over land] to your children,"
Commissioner Julie Combs
said. "It won't fix it for every-
body. There's certain criteria
and certain steps that need to be
The amendment now .al-
lows residents living on parcels
zoned RCMH 2.5 to deed land
to family members; previously,
only two agricultural zones were
considered acceptable fam-
ily lots. Also, the commissioners
lifted a previous restriction that
the original lot must have been
registered and recorded as legal
prior to 1991.
And now, a family member
must reside on the newly carved
lot for three years. Before Mon-
day, that time limit was only one
year. The.board said the change
was intended to address devel-
opers who attempted to skirt
county regulations by establish-
ing "family lots."
In other matters before the
board at its July 16 mid-month
meeting, the board again heard
Barbara Yarborough, president
of the Baker County Council
on Aging, request the proceeds
from the sale of land in Mac-
clenny that she says were prom-
ised to the COA.
Several years ago, the county
agreed to donate to the COA
any proceeds from the sale of
the south Macclenny land that
was the former site of the health
department. In February, 2006,
the county sold the land to a
developer for $1.2 million. At
Monday's meeting, Ms. Yarbor-
ough read a letter asking for the
money; the COA wants to use
the money to build a new head-
"We feel very strongly and
committed to this project and
that this is the best solution for
your board as well as ours," she
said. "Upon receipt of the funds
we shall move forward to pur-
chase land, hire a grants writer/
fund raiser, hire the architect,
and build the facility, etc., that
will fit the needs of today and
Documents submitted to the
county by the COA indicate the
council spent more than $1.2
million in 2006-2007; the coun-
ty contributed $179,549.
"I, for one, want to thank the
board and the council for their
Alex Robinson said. "They have
gone through some very trying
times, And we do intend to fol-
low through on our promise."
The COA, which serves area
senior citizens from its current
headquarters in an aging two-
story building at College and
US 90 in Macclenny, re-orga-
nized twp years ago following a
financial crisis that forced ouster
of its former director.
The commission also heard
from Cathy Rhoden of the Baker,
County Fair Association about
leasing the Baker County Fair-
grounds from the county. The
county has owned the land north
of Macclenny for decades, and
the Fair Association says leas-
ing it would make preparation
for the annual county fair in the
Commissioners indicated they
would support such a lease.

several others roaming about

All the animals get regular

Currently the agency has two

animal shelters in general, ani-

These services are covered

considering it costs as much or
more just to treat a pet for fleas
Adoption of a pet through this
program is a practical way to
offset the very serious problem
of stray and unwanted animals
in the county.
Responsible spaying and neu-
tering would solve so much of
the stray and feral animal prob-
lem, especially as it exists in the
city," said Ms. Monfort.
The "problem" wouldn't be
a problem if pet owners would
spay and neuter their pets. This
would especially curb the feral
cat population, as cats have pro-
lific reproductive capabilities.
A single pair of cats and
their kittens can produce up to
420,000 cats in seven years. A
healthy, spayed, indoor cat lives
about 15 years on average. Stray
cats live 2-5 years if they are
Many people believe that neu-
tering a male dog will decrease
the dog's "maleness" and result
in a fat, lazy dog. According to
Ms. Monfort, this is simply not
true and is one of the many mis-
conceptions people have about
the process. Spaying and neuter-
ing increase the lifespan of the
pet as well as its quality of life.
Animals that are properly fed
and exercised don't gain excess
Stray animals, whether aban-
doned or lost, face a cruel life.
Exposed to extremes of heat
and cold, they roam freely, often
trespassing to forage in garbage
cans for food. Their short life-
spans are a cycle of starvation,
dehydration, disease, loneliness,
and persecution from unsympa-
thetic humans and other animal
predators. A large percentage
are hit by cars. Stray dogs will
revert to their pack nature and
can become predatory and dan-

not avoid bringing animals to the
shelter due to embarrassment or
fear of being judged.
"We don't judge anyone. We
understand that owners some-

Fishing tournament begins
Beckham no savior
for US soccer scene
Most of the people in this
country watching the hype sur-
rounding soccer star David
Beckham's arrival in the US
shrug and say, "Big deal." This
is not a country of rabid soccer
fans, and even the world's most
famous player doesn't warrant
The LA Galaxy of Major
League Soccer (MLS) forked
out a tremendous, jaw dropping
amount of money for Beckham.
The British soccer icon will
pocket $250 million over five
How in the world does the
Galaxy think it will make back
that kind of money in a country
that could care less about soccer?
They realize something about
Becks that most of us don't when
we see that figure in print.
Beckham isn't so much a soc-
cer star as a celebrity. He has the
chiseled face and body, the gor-
geous pop star wife and celebrity
friends like Tom Cruise and Ka-
tie Holmes. He's a franchise as
much as a player.
Already, the Galaxy has sold
250,000 #23 shirts with Beck-
ham's name on the back. It is
LA's hottest fashion item. In Ma-
drid, where he played for three
years for Real Madrid, one of the
world's biggest clubs, Beckham
merchandise amounted for $300
million in sales.
Madrid didn't need the extra
fans in the seats because they
sold out every game anyway. In
the US, where the Galaxy team
plays in a 25,000-seat arena that
often has more unsold seats than
sold, his presence on the field is
good for 10 or 15,000 more fans
Is he the savior of soccer in
America as some claim? Not a
chance. Soccer will never be as
big as football, baseball and bas-
ketball as a spectator sport. Most
of us haven't grown up with the
game and soccer is an acquired
taste. You have to learn to ap-
preciate the game itself before
you can really enjoy watching
it. Most Americans won't give it
that chance. It will find its niche
and Beckham will help, but that's
So while he will give a boost
to attendance anywhere he plays,
he won't help the game in Co-
lumbus or Kansas City when
he's not in town.
Notice I haven't said a word
about Beckham the player. He
isn't the best player in the world
or even the best mid-fielder. He
certainly comes in to the Galaxy
as the best player in America.
But how much can he help
LA. They are a bad team. They
have some good players includ-
ing Landon Donovan, the finest
striker the US has produced, but
they are still a bad team. Beck-
ham won't propel them to the
MLS Cup in one year.
But he'll be fun to watch.
Seniortll-Stars play in tournament

Stop trying to livefree ofDie Hard; moviepackspunch,
BY BOB GERARD
Is it just me or does Bruce
Willis look like he's chiseled out
of a block of stone in the latest
installment of the Die Hard se-
ries? Willis took a 12-year hiatus
before making Live Free or Die
Hard, but the decade since Die
Hard With a Vengeance hasn't
affected the way he comes across
on the big screen. He still looks
as if he was carved on Mt. Rush-
I've seen all the Die Hard
movies and this one is probably
my favorite. They all follow the
same format, of course. Willis,
who plays NYPD cop John Mc-
Clane, is alone against a host
of bad guys. He must do battle
against overwhelming odds,
cause an entire car lot of crash-
es, kill dozens of baddies, blow
up at least a score of things and
endure cuts, scrapes and bruises
that would leave lesser mortals
in traction for six months. And
he must do it all with that wry
smile on his face as if he knows
something the rest of us don't.
He does. He knows that these
movies sell and that he can keep
making them until the terrorists
all run dry.
In Live Free or Die Hard, the
bad guy is a disaffected comput-
er genius named Thomas Gabriel
(Timothy Olyphant). Gabriel has
convinced a legion of computer
hackers to break into all the gov-
ernment, financial and military
computers in the US and is us-
ing them to bring the country to a
complete standstill. To cover his
tracks he is killing the hackers.
McClane is sent to pick one
of them up and find out what he
knows. But when McClane gets
to the home of Matt Farrell (Jus-
tin Long), he is attacked by thugs
with machine guns.
Something you notice about
thugs with machine guns in Die
Hard movies they are awful
shots. They fire clips of ammuni-
tion at McClane and miss. Also,
machine gun bullets can blow
holes in metal car doors and take
down helicopters, but can't pen-
etrate a couch. When you go to
a Die Hard movie you'd better
leave your sense of reality at the
Believing that all the hackers
are dead, Gabriel uses his com-
puters to shut down all transpor-
tation. He crashes airport and
train computers and shuts off all
the traffic lights. It's chaos.
With Farrell in tow, McClane
watches it all happen. He contacts
the FBI before Gabriel shuts off
all the telephone lines and cell
traffic. Meanwhile, Gabriel dis-
covers that one lone hacker pro-
tected by one lone cop survives
and sends his goons with guns
What ensues is work for about
50 stunt men and explosives ex-
perts. Car crashes, helicopter
crashes, buildings blowing up
- it's edge of the seat stuff. Mc-
Clane loses quarts of blood but
still manages to keep walking.
I was with him until he jumped
on the wing for the F-35 Raptor.
That was too much even for me.
But I won't give it all away if
you haven't seen the movie.
Willis was made for this
kind of role and his tongue-in-
cheek tough guy act still rings
true since the first Die Hard was
made in 1990. Part of his appeal
is he doesn't take any of it seri-
ously. You can just look at him
Justin Long is also very ap-
pealing as the computer hacker
in trouble. He came straight to
the screen from television com-
mercials. You'll know him as the
laid back Mac guy on the Apple
commercials. He's the foil to the
stiff, suit-wearing PC guy. He's
so good at it that Apple saw sales
of Macs go up 150% since the
He comes across just as like-
able on the big screen and there
is a lot of chemistry between him
and Willis that drives the movie.
Olyphant isn't quite so con-
vincing. He doesn't quite come
across as someone willing to kill
thousands of people for revenge.
Director Len Wiseman knows
how to handle the action se-
quences. They are what makes
this movie tick and there are a
lot of them. They will keep you
glued to your seat and munch-
ing popcorn. Ironically, this is
Wiseman's first big Hollywood
movie. It won't be his last.
Live Free or Die Hard is an
awful lot of fun and a proto-
typical summer movie. Give it a
look. It is rated R. I give it 3 out
of 4 stars.
To the coaches and players of
the All-Stars ball team on your
district title win.
Keep up the good work!
We are proud of you, Storm Mi*er!

It's the high season if you're
a fisherman. The Greater Jack-
sonville Kingfish Tournament is
on tap. It's the 27th consecutive
year that teams from around the
country have come to try their
hands at catching the big kings.
A thousand boats will leave
the Sisters Creek Marina as they
search the waves from Feman-
dina to Flagler Beach Thursday
and Friday for the big kings that
could land them $500,000 in
cash and prizes. The kings are
elusive, and anglers will need a
combination of luck and skill to
pull in the big prize.
There are two main prizes, for
the biggest king and for the ag-
gregate total in a number of cat-
egories. In other words, the boat
with the highest weight in king-
fish wins the aggregate prize.
It's a lot of fun even if you're
not a fisherman. The boats leave
early on Thursday and Friday
and the weigh-ins are at 3:00
pm. That's when the excitement
starts as boat after boat comes in
hoping that they are carrying a
There's plenty to do while you
wait on the arrival of the boats.
There are exhibit tents, conces-
sions, a boat show and live mu-
sic. On Saturday, the awards cer-
emony starts at 6:30 pm and there
is live music from the Swingin'
wedding & birth
