For plants to thrive,

soil must be just right

Q I just got my soil test
Results back from the
University of Florida and I don't
know what the numbers are
supposed to tell me. The report
says the target pH should be
6.0-6.5. It says my soil pH is 7.0.
What does that mean? JG
A I am glad you called me as
.this gave me an opportuni-
ty to clarify the test results. One
advantage to going through the
University of Florida Soils
is the

Beck in which
Jord e the plant
*- * -" (vegeta-
GARDEN bles)
TAen, prefers to
Your soil
pH was at 7.0, which means it is
slightly higher or more alkaline
than the vegetables prefer. As
you read farther down the page
you will see a lime recommen-
dation. Lime is often added to
vegetable gardens to raise the
pH level or "sweeten" the soil.
Often, people add lime annually
without a soil test and soon they
notice their vegetable produc-
tion is low or poor quality. That
is why it is recommended to
have your vegetable garden soil
tested once every 2-3 years.
In the case of your garden
soil, it is suggested no lime be
added. That is the reason you
see a zero by lime. Soil pH is
important because most plants
have a certain range in which
they are able to absorb nutrients
from the soil as long as water is
present. If the soil pH is too
high (alkaline) or too low
(acidic) then the plant may not
be able to absorb specific ele-
ments such as iron or man-
ganese. This nutrient deficiency
often shows up in the plant in
the form of yellow leaves.
Yellow leaves occur frequently
on acid loving plants such as
azaleas, camellias or gardenias
when the soil pH is high. We
recommend using pine straw or
pine bark around the roots of
these acid loving plants as this
helps lower the pH over time.
For vegetable gardens, it is
best to use composted material
along with cow manure and
sand to help keep pH levels at
optimal ranges.
Q My neighbor gave me
. .some gorgeous pink and
white amaryllis for Christmas.

This illustration shows the proper pruning cut to make on
large citrus tree branches.

She told me they could be plant-
ed in the yard. How do I take
care of these beautiful plants?
A. The following information
was gleaned from a University
of Florida/IFAS publication,
titled "Amaryllis," by Dr. Sydney
Brown and Dr. Robert Black
http://edis.ifas. ufl.edu/EP060.
Amaryllis bulbs can be plant-
ed in the ground anytime
between September and
January. Amaryllis plants do
best in light or dappled shade.
In heavy shade they will be thin,
spindly and flower poorly. These
plants require well-drained soils
amended with organic matter or
Use slow-release forms of
fertilizer to minimize leaching of
nutrients into water resources.
Apply two to three light applica-
tions of fertilizer during grow-
ing season, which is March
through September. Plant the
bulbs 12 to 15 inches apart with
the neck of the bulb protruding
above the ground. Water newly
planted amaryllis and keep
them moist but not waterlogged
until the plants are well estab-
lished. The bulbs may be left in
the ground for several years or
dug and reset every September
or October. It is not necessary
to dig, separate and replant each
year, but doing so will encour-
age uniform flowering and larg-
er blooms. Digging also pro-
vides an opportunity to discard
unhealthy bulbs, to remove
young offsets bulbletss) and to
amend the bed with organic
matter. Control weeds by
spreading a 2-inch layer of
mulch over the bed at planting
time and remove any that
Q When do I prune my cit-
.rus? LB

A .In general, homegrown cit-
*rus trees do not need for-
mal pruning. If, however, you
wish to rejuvenate the tree then
light pruning should occur just
before a major growth flush.
Broken, cracked or diseased
branches can be removed any-
time. For complete information
regarding growing citrus in

"Of course he did." That
was my response to my
Dad's question when he
called me yesterday to ask
whether or not I thought
Roger Clemens had used
steroids. Clemens, who many
consider to be one of the
greatest pitchers of all time,
has strongly denied the use
of any such drugs, but was
named throughout'.:1,. I.:.II
Mitchell report as probably
the biggest offender next to
Barry Bonds.
Clemens' former trainer,
Brian McNamee, was quoted
in the Mitchell report saying
that he injected Clemens in
the buttocks with growth
hormone and anabolic
Clemens recently
appeared on CBS's "60
Minutes" and told reporter
Mike Wallace that the only
thing McNamee injected him
with was Vitamin B-12 and
lidocaine. He said the B-12
was something he's taken for
years for energy and the lido-
caine was for his joints.
Hogwash! Lidocaine is a
local anesthetic agent used to
"numb" an area prior to a
procedure, such as a dental
filling or sutures. It numbs
only the area where you
inject it and has no systemic
effects. So, for Clemens to
claim that he was taking lido-
caine shots in the butt to
make his joints feel better is
Some have claimed that
Clemens is setting up his "I
didn't know" defense much
as Bonds did when he report-
ed that he thought he was
using flaxseed oil, which of
course turned out to be ana-
bolic steroids.
Mind you, not everyone is
disputing McNamee's claims.
He also reported that he
injected Clemens' Yankee
teammate and workout part-
ner Andy Petitte with growth
hormone as well. Petitte later
admitted that this was true
and that he did so in order to
help rehabilitate an injury.
I like to think of this as
the "Yeah, but..." defense. I
have been a physician, taking
care of athletes for years, and
never have I prescribed
growth hormone to help
recover from an injury and
know of no other physicians
who have done so either.
I believe that many ath-
letes, most of them unnamed,
likely tried steroids as a
method to get ahead because
steroids were not illegal in
baseball prior to 2003.
Athletes would turn to their
trainers for advice on how to
use them because they would
be the ones in the know.
I spoke with a former
major league player, who told
me that teams would even
hold player meetings on the
"dangers of steroids, but if
you were going to use them
anyway, here is how you
would go about doing it safe-
Clemens likely just did
what everyone else was
doing, but unfortunately for
him, as a superstar, he is
being singled out.
I think that there is likely
no proof that Clemens used
steroids. He knows that and
therefore he can stand fast in
his denial.
Clemens' attorney states
that McNamee made these
claims to avoid federal prose-
cution himself and now is
looking into a defamation
lawsuit against McNamee.
Clemens and McNamee both
are scheduled to appear
before Congress to answer
questions on the matter.

Pirates clinch county championship

News Leader
The county championship trophy didn't leave
Fernandina Beach High School Tuesday night. The
host Pirates defeated West Nassau and then Yulee to
take the title.
"We are definitely excited about this county cham-
pionship," said Mark Durr, FBHS wrestling coach.
"Our guys have been working very hard for this. We
came in every morning at 7 a.m. over the Christmas
break, including a morning practice on New Year's
Day, to make sure we would be ready for this night.
The county championship would be something we
would talk about as we walked in the door at 7 a.m.
and out the door hours later.
'This championship was not handed to our guys.
They earned it. We had a lot of guys, like Mitch Haley,
Ian Muir, Donnie Moore, Jack Williams, Beau Baxter
and Chris Kremler, who got after it early and kept the
pressure on until they got the win.
"We are emulating the attitude of our coach, John
Williams, which is aggressive wrestling until we get
the pin. Not many of our matches go three periods.
We have a lot of work to get done between now and
districts. We have to put the trophy on the shelf as we
strap it up and get on the bus for our weekend tour-
nament at Flagler."
The night started with Yulee and West Nassau
facing off on the mat. The YHS Hornets prevailed 54-
There was a double-forfeit at 103 pounds and, in
the first varsity match, Yulee's James Blocker (112
pounds) pinned Hunter Young in 24 seconds. George
Shepard (119) won the first of two matches, pinning
West Nassau's Taylor Meide in 3:11. At 125, Hornet
Mike Didion pinned Nick Scott in 27 seconds.
In the 130-pound match, West Nassau's Andrew
Elder pinned Damon Dennis in 3:11 and teammate
Terrell Walker also picked up a win for the Warriors,
pinning Roy Davis in 2:59 in the 135-pound class.
Yulee's Josh Dennis (140) pinned Wes Padgett in
1:34 before West Nassau picked up another win. Kyle
Mulder pinned Chase Gonzales in 28 seconds at 145
Neil Hughes, Yulee's 152-pound wrestler, pinned
Garrett Wright in 3:21. Jeff Howell, 160 for Yulee,
pinned Blake Martin in 1:15. Hornet Chris Martinez
(171) pinned Elijah Smith in 1:29. At 189 pounds,
Yulee's Tim Mabe defeated Johnathan Wainwright by
pin in 3:29.
West Nassau came up a winner in the 215-pound
class when Kevin Crews pinned Rob Griffis in 26 sec-
onds. Yulee forfeited the heavyweight class.
"We seem to be constantly jockeying our lineup
around to fill some gaps, but hopefully we'll have all
the holes plugged by districts," YHS Coach Michael
Carty said. "We are getting closer to where we want
to be as a program. I had a three-year plan for our pro-
gram in mind when I took this start-from-scratch
coaching position, and we are right on track. If we
meet our goals for the postseason, we'll be ahead of

picked up three more wins in a
row. Watkins (145) pinned Hughes

by forfeit at 103 pounds. In the final
match of the night, Yulee's Blocker
pinned Baxter in 1:16 in the 112-
pound class.
"One hard-to-miss observation

from our match with Fernandina
was the difference in strength,"
Carty said. "Strength not only gives
you the tools to execute moves
effectively, but it also covers up a
lot of mistakes. Fernandina obvi-
ously is more dedicated with their
strength training than we are at
this point.
"I've often told our kids that if
you get beat on technique and ath-
leticism, that's one thing, but
shame on you if you get beat on
strength, because any idiot can
get in the gym and get stronger.
Hopefully (Tuesday) will serve as
the motivational reminder they
need to get in the weightroom on
a regular basis."
While the Pirates compete in a
tournament at Flagler today and
Saturday the Hornets will be at

Targeting kingfish at TW reef

good bet for anglers this weekend

includes cooler air temperatures and a 40
percent chance of rain. Winds will also
determine if blue water fishermen will opt
to make that long run to Northeast Florida's
Continental Shelf. However, recent runs to the big
ledge have produced minimum action for both
wahoo and dolphin.
Kingfishing would be a better choice at TW reef,
where mackerel weighing to 25 pounds have been
taken while slow trolling dead cigar minnows.
Bottom fishing at FC reef is still producing a few
gag grouper, sea bass and red snapper.
The St. Marys jetty rocks should offer excellent
sheepshead fishing during the late afternoon falling
tide. Fish up close to the low areas in the jetty
rocks with barnacles or fiddler crabs. Low tide
arrives at the St. Marys inlet at 4:15 p.m.
Black drum and redfish should be biting at the
tip of the St. Marys south jetty rocks during the
morning incoming tide. Fish up close to the sub-
merged jetty rocks and on the ocean side with
fresh dead shrimp.
Sea trout are running in Egans Creek and just
south of the fishy creek along the rock- and piling-
strewn shoreline. Fish the incoming tide with live
shrimp under a popping cork. Slow trolling a 1/4-
ounce led head jig rigged with a chartreuse curly
plastic tail is also very productive in Egans Creek
during the winter fishing season.

Redfish are schooling in the
upper reaches of Langsford
Creek and the oyster-laden
mud flats located just south of
the Shave Bridge. Fish the low
tide periods with Berkley Gulp
shrimp in the white and
molten color patterns. A small
1/4-ounce gold Johnson spoon
also works well when retrieved
Terry Lacoss slowly just off the bottom.
Surf fishing should produce

Gotch-U-Tube: Car burglars on tape

News Leader

During the past several years,
Fernandina Beach Police officers
knew they could expect a rash of
burglaries during the summer
months of vehicles parked at city
beach accesses.
This year, Fernandina Beach
Police Chief Jim Hurley is sending
out an early warning to potential
burglars: Break into a vehicle now,
and you could find out you've been
caught on tape.
Last month, the Fernandina
Beach Police Department was
awarded a grant of $11,000 worth
of surveillance equipment - cam-
eras that can easily be moved from
one location to another.
Hurley has applied for another
grant for $6,400, and if necessary

he will use con-
fiscated drug
funds to pur-
chase addition-
al equipment.
By summer, he
expects to have
the hardware up
and running.
Hurley "If we get a
good camera up
there, we'll get
all the intelligence we need real
quick," he said. "... It helps in a lot
of ways, once you've got video, it
helps in the interview, helps you
convince people they need to coop-
erate ... it helps all around."
Increased patrolling of the areas
helped to curb the problem, but
not enough to satisfy Hurley. He
said the location of many beach
accesses makes them a prime tar-

get for burglaries.
"You can't see the vehicle once
you park it and go to the beach," he
pointed out. "And also you've got...
condos on both the north and the
south side of the access points,
which further blocks and conceals,
giving people the sense that they
can pull in without being seen."
Hurley has other plans for the
surveillance equipment as well. He
will move the cameras around,
using them in different parts of the
city including Centre Street, Main
Beach and the skate park in
Fernandina Beach.
The department field-tested the
plan at the annual Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival last year by
putting borrowed cameras on
Centre Street during the event.
CAMERA Continued on 3A



A beautiful day by the pier at Fort Clinch State Park prompted these photographs by local
photographer Ray Palumbo, a transplant from Pittsburgh.

A lone car at a beach access in Fernandina Beach presents an
inviting target to thieves.

City postpones

welcome center

News Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners agreed Tuesday to put the
downtown Marina Welcome Center
project on hold for at least six
months, despite having already
approved a design for the build-
The vote was 5-0 to seek an
extension for a federal grant that
would help pay for the project.
Several commissioners appar-
ently still had questions as to "what
a welcome center should be" -
even though they had agreed on a
design by VIA Concepts of
Jacksonville in November.
The city-approved structure was
to be built over the current bath-
house at an estimated cost of more
than $1 million - an increase of at
least $500,000 over the original esti-
mate of $487,500. According to City
Manager Michael Czymbor,
$212,500 was federal grant money.
Because the grant was to expire
in September, the commission had
recently decided to move forward

too quickly as it turns out.
Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity, who


along with Com-
missioner Bruce
Malcolm asked
the welcome

put on the meet-
ing agenda, said
the original proj-
ect commenced
in 2002 - but
there was still a
question as to

what the center was really sup-
posed to be.
"I don't feel good about taking
money out of reserves and spend-
ing it on transient boaters," said
The Boating Infrastructure
Grant Program, or BigP, which was
to partially pay for the project, is a
federal grant geared to assist mari-
nas to attract visiting boaters.
Commissioners, however, have
argued that the center should also
be usable for the community.
"It is clear to me that this com-
mission is incompetent when it
comes to deciding what a welcome
center is," said Commissioner Ron
Sapp. "I'm so frustrated with this,

Study: Moving logs

by rail is efficient

News Leader
A privately funded study early
last year found that transferring
logs from trucks to rail resulted in
increased efficiency for the truck-
ers and less log truck traffic on
A1A to the paper mills in
Fernandina Beach.
For the log truckers, it reduced
turnaround time and allowed more
trips to the rail transfer station on
US 17.
II .v,,, I... I:d out very well," said
Chuck Higginbotham, general
manager, mechanical, for First
Coast Railroad's office on Gum
Street in Fernandina Beach. "The
log company we used trimmed
down considerable turnaround
time and decreased their liability in
traffic on A1A."
The six-week trial, conducted
during February and March last
year at the rail transfer station on
US 17 North, involved one log

truck company. Although other
companies asked to be included,
"It was a closed test,"
Higginbotham said, for a controlled
Test data showed that a log
truck could increase its trips from
three to five or six runs a day,
Higginbotham said. The experi-
ment began timing a truck from
its entrance into the US 17 facility
through its departure, while simul-
taneously measuring the time of a
partner log truck continuing to a
paper mill via A1A.
It took approximately 28 min-
utes for a log truck to unload at
the rail transfer facility. It took
about two or three hours bl....
their partner came back" from the
mill, Higginbotham said. It is "less
labor intensive to unload from rail,"
he said.

Elizabeth Hunter Ozmer
Elizabeth Hunter Ozmer, 22, of Roanoke,
Va., danced to her Heavenly Home on Jan. 3,
2008, to receive her heavenly reward and to
see the Face of God.
Born and raised in Roanoke, Va., Hunter
faced and conquered many challenges through-
out her life. As a youngster,
Hunter became involved with
every activity available to her,
beginning with her partici-
pation at her home church,
First Presbyterian. She sang f
in the choir starting at the
age of four and continuing
through age 18. Singing to
"her Lord' was a powerful
way for Hunter to worship. Hunter also partic-
ipated in the church's youth fellowship pro-
gram. Hunter's passion for her church ran so
deep she asked to become a church member at
an uncommonly young age. The sense of
urgency Hunter felt to be a full-fledged church
member was a result of her early decision to
give her life to Christ. Hunter's faith was a con-
stant source of excitement, joy and strength.
Because of the many physical limitations
Hunter had to accept, she blossomed into an
inspiring, generous helper. She helped with
Bible School each summer, both for her church
as well as other churches in the Valley. Hunter
also worked for many years as an afternoon
tutor at the Presbyterian Community Center
and helped in the church's food pantry.
In Junior High, Hunter attended Hidden
Valley Junior High and wanted so badly to be
involved in school sports. Due to the physical
limitations of Niemann-Pick Type C, she was not
able to participate in any contact sports.
Because of Hunter's positive outlook and belief
that "All Things Are Possible," she was adamant
about showing her school spirit and she became
an invaluable supporter in other ways. In junior
high, she was manager of the HVJH girls' vol-
leyball team, attending each daily practice and
game. Hunter was a member of Hidden Valley
High School's first graduating class, and she
was thrilled to be the squad manager for the
HVHS Cheerleaders, fulfilling her dream of
being part of the cheerleading squad. Hunter
did not allow her disability to overshadow her
many abilities, and she gave her all in every sit-
uation, always the No. 1 Fan.
Having lived with Niemann-Pick Disease
Type C for 22 years, Hunter never failed to see
the positive or put those around her at ease
with her situation. She was quick to offer
encouragement, gratitude or empathy when
they were needed. Her smile and sense of well-
being were infectious and people were drawn
to Hunter.
Left to cherish Hunter's memory are her
parents, Hunt and Annette Poore Ozmer;
beloved sister, McNair Ozmer; beloved Bosnian
sister, Vedrana Vasilj, New York; maternal
grandparents, Bob and Nancy Poore; paternal
grandmother, Elizabeth Stover Ozmer; aunts
and uncles, Rick and Cindy Poore Scaggs,
Robert and Dana Poore, Gordon and Anne
Marie Poore, Jim and Ann Ozmer, and Rick
Ozmer; cousins, Travis Dossett, Alexandra and
Robby Poore, Amelia, Romey and Selden Poore,
and Adam Ozmer. Hunter was predeceased by
her paternal grandfather, James M. Ozmer.
Hunter left this Earth knowing she was
loved here on Earth and that an even greater
love and comfort awaited her with the Lord

Gandy asked during a Wednesday
meeting for information about
alternatives to AIA for transport-
ing logs to Fernandina paper mills.
Rising fuel prices will serve as
an incentive for log truck compa-
nies and the paper/pulp industry
to look for alternatives to reduce
costs, Port Commissioner Ron
Braddock said. He estimates it
costs about 70 cents per mile, with
fuel at $3.50 per gallon, to trans-
port logs by truck.
"That's a lot of money to spend
on fuel," he said. Using the rail
transfer facility would create "a
lot of savings all around."

to build something that the tax-
payers can use."
Marina Director Coleman
Langshaw said the project was
originally to contain a marine edu-
cation center, but the concept was
changed over the past six years.
"Ultimately I want to see the
project get done," he said after
the meeting. "I understand the
reason for (the commission) tak-
ing a step back.... The intent was
to do more (with the welcome cen-
ter) than commissioners want to
"Last time we talked about this,
the location and the saving of open
space was more important than
the cost," said Commissioner Ken
Walker. "I'm not opposed to asking
for an extension, but I don't antic-
ipate (a welcome center) happen-
ing. We've certainly attempted to
hash it out. I still have that hope."
Czymbor asked commission-
ers for "some clear direction" on
how to move forward. Asked
about his own vision for a wel-
come center, he said he envi-
sioned a building that was an "eco-
nomic driver" for the community,
with educational components,
Internet access, restrooms and
laundry facilities. The restrooms
and laundry facilities are to be in

In an e-mail to Patricia Harrell,
grant specialist for the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Czymbor said, 'The
projected cost to construct a build-
ing in the waterfront area as well
as the uncertainty of the property
tax reform impacts on local gov-
ernment are prompting the recon-
sideration of the type of structure
and feature that will be offered in
the building."
Harrell said in an e-mail to
Czymbor that "deviation from the
current project elements (plans)
would require an amendment to
the grant agreement between the
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission and
the United States Fish & Wildlife
Service, and then a contract
amendment between the FWC
and the city."
She added the grant extension
would have to be prior to the con-
tract amendment, and would take
at least three months to process.
She also noted that the city could
submit a request for either a six-
month or one-year extension.
Czymbor also said the city
could move ahead with renovating
the current bathhouse, as it was
part of the original BigP applica-
tion. He said in an e-mail there
was $122,500, with $37,500 from
grants, available to modernize the
restroom, shower, laundry facili-
ties and mechanical room. The
building could also receive some
cosmetic improvements such as
interior painting and new floor-

Rash of car burglaries:

Take precautions
Following a rash of nighttime vehicle burglaries in "the Fernandina
Beach area," Nassau County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves has asked
people to use caution when leaving their vehicles unattended.
Seagraves said vehicles should be parked in a secure garage; if
that's not possible, owners should try to park them in well-lighted
Vehicles should always be locked and any valuables should be
taken out of the car.
"If you are unable to remove your valuables, try to conceal them
in the truck or console so that an opportunist may not see them,"
Seagraves said.
If a vehicle has an alarm system, it should be set so that it will
sound if a burglar attempts to enter the vehicle.
Seagraves also asks anyone who notices suspicious activity to
contact the Nassau County Sheriff's Office at 225-5174, or (904)
879-3853 in Callahan, Hilliard or Bryceville.

and we could view Centre Street,
we could view all the way down to
the marina," he said. "Those types
of things are valuable in the event
something might happen, and it
gives folks a sense of security."
One of the benefits of being able
to move the cameras around, Hurley
said, is that he can switch from
covert surveillance to public sur-
veillance; sometimes he will publi-
cize the locations, other times he
will order the cameras hidden and
keep them a secret.
It's not just vehicle burglaries
Hurley hopes to address; the videos
could be used to tackle other crime
trends as well. Videotape of criminal
acts aids the process of arresting
and prosecuting a suspect, whether
the crime was burglary, vandalism

or rape, he said.
He also hopes the knowledge
that some areas are under surveil-
lance will serve as a deterrent to at
least some potential criminals.
Hurley said he will not use any of
his budget money allocated by the
city for the approximately $20,000
project. More than half the cost has
already been covered by the grant
of $11,000 in equipment.
Hurley hopes to be awarded the
additional $6,400 grant, and then
take the remaining amount from
the department's Law Enforcement
Trust Fund, which is made up of
confiscated drug money.
"This is good, because it fits what
we've identified as a need," he said,
"and it fits in our strategy of devel-
oping a video environment that is
flexible and will allow us to move
cameras around as needed to
address crime trends, to address
specific concerns or special events."

FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 2008 NEWS News-Leader

When the cowbell rings, turn

those perfect shoes for home

t's the phone call you never
look forward to. A dear friend
of many long years had
passed away.
I pulled out my all-occasion
brown wraparound dress. Thank
goodness my sister gave it to me
last year. It fits no matter what
diet's been followed this week.
Shoes, not so good.
Knee problems have kept
heels out of my closet. For two
years the search has been on for
a trendy pair of heels. Being able
to walk in them is a prerequisite
and without having three weeks
recovery time. Even more tricky
is finding a size 11.
On the off chance that my
two-year streak could be broken,
the car veered into the Payless
Shoes parking lot. Having ugly
shoes for Mrs. Mac's funeral
might sound superficial, but if
you knew her, you would under-
stand. The extra effort would be
appreciated. She was quite the
sharp dresser.
I ran in and scanned over the
"big foot" section of the store.
There they were. Staring at me
like the golden ticket. Sliding
them on, my feet and the style

Perfect fit

bonus was

Feeling as
elegant as
slipping on
the glass
slipper, I hur-
ried to the

checkout to pay for my treasure.
This five-minute pit stop proved
to be a rewarding detour.
Getting settled in my car for
the six-hour drive, a feeling of
warmth surrounded me. A smile
filled my heart as I spoke to
Theresa quietly. Feeling as if she
had navigated my car to that little
store and nudged me in. She
helped me find the cute shoes for
her funeral. She knew it mattered
to me, but more than that, the
search was in honor of her.
Theresa's always had a special
place in my heart. Her son,

Kevin, and I have been friends
since grammar school. She was a
bright and spirited soul who
loved to shop and to accessorize.
Her shoes always matched per-
fectly. Purple, red, orange, yellow,
it didn't matter what the outfit,
the shoes had to be just right.
Cancer was enveloping her
capacity to live, but not her zest
for life. She delighted in spending
time with her grandkids and
loved ones.
A diligent homemaker and
seamstress who let me design my
hot-pink prom dress that she so
carefully made. An enthusiastic
fan of her boys' football days, she
lead the cheering section with an
always obnoxious ringing cowbell
and loved to reminisce about the
old high school days we shared.
Theresa shopped online when
she could no longer stroll the
malls. In his eulogy, Keith, her
oldest son, said, "Dad's going to
be receiving gifts she ordered for
many months to come." It
delighted her heart to give.
'The only thing she would
have changed at her funeral was
that we couldn't see her shoes
matched her lavender suit. And
the fact that we did not ring a
cowbell in her honor."
We will all remember her
when we hear one, or when we
find that coveted pair of fantastic

FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 2008/News-Leader

Ron Paul, in his own words

Ron Paul, the 10-term
Republican congressman
from the Gulf Coast of
Texas, has become a star
of the Internet, attracting an army
of mostly young, energetic, fierce-
ly loyal "Paulistas" to his presiden-
tial campaign and shocking the
political establishment by raising
more than $20 million in contribu-
tions, mainly via the Web.
A medical doctor who's deliv-
ered 4,000 babies, Paul, 72, has
been able to espouse his libertari-
an ideas about personal freedom,
constitutionally limited govern-
ment, non-intervention overseas
and sound money during the
presidential debates and in count-
less interviews in the mainstream
The following Q&A is assem-
bled by Bill Steigerwald, a colum-
nist at the Pittsburgh Tribune-
Review, from two interviews with
Paul, one from late 2000 and one
in April, 2007, shortly after he
announced he would run for pres-

Q: How do you define your
A: In a philosophic sense, I
describe myself as strict constitu-
tionalist. I believe the
Constitution is a very libertarian
document, and therefore I identi-
fy with classical liberal or libertar-
ian ideas. I do not volunteer the
definition of "conservative," and
certainly not "liberal," in today's
Q: For those who don't know
the difference between a "classi-
cal liberal" and (the late) liberal
New York Democrat Daniel
Patrick Moynihan, can you tell us
the difference?
A: Well, the classical liberal, or
the libertarian, or the constitu-
tionalist, believes that govern-
ment is designed to protect our
liberties and to allow people to
solve their own problems. It is
not designed to regulate the
economy, nor our personal lives.
Under the classical liberal
viewpoint, government was there
to restrain force and to allow peo-

ple to use their own creative ener-
gy to solve their problems. Today,
the modern liberal - and many
conservatives - believes govern-
ment has a much bigger role in
telling us what to do, how to live
and involvement in our personal
lives, as well as regulating the
Q: Who are your favorite clas-
sical liberals?
A In the economic sense, and
for the 20th century, my favorite
is Ludwig von Mises, because he
has done the best job in explain-
ing how a free-market economy
can work if we allow it to work.
Of course, I also like John
Locke. And of course, the one
who in a very simplistic way influ-
enced a lot of the modern day lib-
ertarians was Frederic Bastiat.
He wrote the book The Law,
which simplifies the whole debate
so succinctly. It's easy for every-
body to read and understand, the
principle being that government
should never do anything that
you, yourself, can't do. And if it's

Q: What kind of Republican
are you?
A: I call myself a constitutional
Republican. Some others call me
a libertarian Republican, which is
OK too, because I believe the
Founders were very libertarian.
They wanted a very limited gov-
ernment and they emphasized
individual liberty. In many ways
to me that's a traditional
Republican, because there was a
time when Republicans stood for
smaller government and actually
they stood for nonintervention
overseas. They argued always
against the Democrats starting
wars. They argued in the past for
sound money and civil liberties.
It's just that they've lost their way
and Republicans and Democrats
are pretty much the same these

]RIM 1.

A blimp promoting Ron Paul's candidacy for president hov-
ered off Amelia Island earlier this week.

A I would say in two areas.
One is in foreign policy, because
they have all gone along with
Bush and the policy in the
Middle East. I was opposed to the
war in Iraq a long time before it
was started, arguing that we were
moving in that direction and that
we should not. I have taken a
very, very strong position against
the war, that we ought to end it
and that we ought to come home.
The other area is something
that is for most people very eso-
teric but to me very, very funda-
mental and very important, and
that is sound money. We should
never have given the federal gov-
ernment - through the Federal
Reserve System - the power to
create money out of thin air,
because it inevitably causes a
great deal of economic harm and
at the same time it gives license
to governments to spend money
they don't have and then delay
the payment by just printing up
the money and penalizing the
poor people and middle-class
with high inflation rates.
Q: Do Republican voters really
want someone like you - some-
one who really wants to cut the

A: I don't think all Republicans
do, because they keep electing
the wrong kind. But I think the
grassroots - those who go to con-
ventions and those who write the
platforms - do. I was just study-
ing the Iowa state Republican
platform, and, boy, it's hardcore.
And Texas has a platform that's
really hardcore. But they are not
the money people. The money
people in the Republican Party
come from the drug industry and
the military industrial complex.
So yes, that's our competition
and they have a lot of money and
a lot of clout and frequently they
own media outlets, too. It's a
struggle, but I am convinced we
are on the right side of the issue
and we are also in an era where
something has to be done,
because more and more people
every day are starting to realize
that we can't continue to just
expand our entitlement system
and never draw back from our
foreign commitments and think
that we can have a viable curren-
cy and a viable economy. I think
it's becoming quite clear that our
economy is suffering from this.

Dim bulb won't cut

o there I was, driving along through Big
Talbot Island one foggy morning recently.
Perhaps driving is too strong of a term. The
fog was so heavy that the gopher tortoises
alongside the road were passing me. And those were
the dead ones.
It was one of those fogs that is so thick and mois-
ture-laden you have to hit your wipers every now
and then just to keep your windshield cleared.
Needless to say, I was driving with my headlights lit.
And if I had fog lamps, aircraft landing lights and
high intensity strobe lights, I would've had them on
as well. I have this thing about other motorists being
able to see me and I really do appreciate it when
they return the courtesy.
Actually, it's more than just a courtesy. It's a law.
And for a good reason. But the idiot who came bar-
reling toward me around 60 miles an hour obviously
believes headlights are for sissies and he wasn't hav-
ing any of that. And just to prove his prowess at navi-
gating blind, he passed the car in front of his. He
emerged from the fog like a speeding wraith and by
the grace of God, I saw him in time to head for the
shoulder, blowing my horn as I went. Hotshot gave
me the finger as he blazed past.
But, by golly, he had those parking lights on. Silly
me. I must be getting old. I guess I really should've
seen them. I reckon I deserve the bird for not notic-
ing two pale yellow specks of light smaller than my
wallet in fog so thick you could've cut it and stacked
it like firewood. I counted my blessings, checked my
P shorts and got back on the road, whereupon I imme-

Planning and zoning board
As former chairman of the Nassau County Planning
and Zoning Board and an "old blood" member, I feel
compelled to respond to your editorial calling for
replacement of experience with newcomers ("Time to
change those on county planning board," Jan. 4).
The planning and zoning board hearing is the pub-
lic's opportunity to comment on a recommendation by
the planning department (growth management) for an
ordinance or land development. It is also the applicants'
chance to appeal a decision by staff. The county depart-
ments have made their determinations and prior to a
proposal being forwarded to the Board of County
Commissioners, we review the facts presented, listen
to public input and submit a recommendation to the
BOCC. We are a key part of the checks and balances
in government.
For quasi-judicial decisions, it is legally required that
we provide a fair hearing. We cannot and do not take
a position prior to hearing both sides. We are also
required to not consider the number of people for or
against a proposal. This may be the most controversial
area in a public hearing: repetitive testimony is not pro-
ductive, and appearing to respond to public pressure
could subject the county and even individual P&Z
members to a lawsuit. The P&Z board, especially
(board chair) Tom Ford, encourages public com-
ments. We are required to support each of our rec-
ommendations with competent and substantial evi-
dence and if someone disputes the facts they can
present their statements to the BOCC.
It takes critical listening, knowledge and confi-
dence for a board member to evaluate and perhaps
oppose a recommendation by professional planners or
attorneys representing the county or the applicants -
Tom Ford, Jeanne Scott and Richard King have demon-
strated their ability and willingness to express their
evaluation to the board and the public. If the zoning
code and land development regulations were clear-cut
and ordinances easily understood, a P&Z board would
not be necessary to protect property rights. The coun-
ty would always be correct.
It really takes experience to apply and understand
the complex business of zoning. With the turnover of
county staff, the years of experience of the members
of the P&Z board has provided stability and a frame of
reference for decisions based on years of public input.
Board members in the past were not expected to rep-
resent a particular commissioner's view. Your editorial
should oppose what "serving at the pleasure of the
commission" conveys to the proposed expanded board.
I think Nassau County really needs seven or nine or
even 11 commissioners if you really want responsive
decisions - remember, we only recommend, the BOCC
makes the decisions.

Still happiness
I, too, remember 1968 very well ("1968, and what
might have been." Dec. 28). It was the year Gill and I
were married. Like many young people of that time,
struggling with our first positions on politics, having
watched so many of my friends go off to Vietnam and
the riots in the streets, I was devastated when Bobby
Kennedy was killed on June 6 and even more so when
the president declared June 9 a national day of mourn-
ing for him. June 9 was our wedding day.
Words cannot describe how I felt about having our
wedding day be a national day of mourning and prayed
that the Rabbi would not mention it during the cere-
mony so that I wouldn't have to remember that sadness

at our wedding all my life.
As it turns out the Rabbi said the most beautiful
thing that I've remembered all my life. As he looked
at both of us, his words were, "On this day of terrible
sadness and mourning, look, there is still happiness
in the world."
So after 40 wonderful years with my terrific hus-
band, seeing him every day reminds me that no mat-
ter what terrible thing is happening in the world, there
is still happiness in my world.

Fish story
I want to tell you a fish story. In 1992 my son asked
me what I wanted for Christmas. I said, "I don't need
anything. And I don't want anymore knickknacks to
dust. I'm sick of dusting what I have."
So being the smart aleck that he is - he called his
sister in Syracuse, N.Y., and said Mom needs more
knickknacks for Christmas. So that Christmas Eve as
we were opening gifts, here's that ugly ceramic fish
from my daughter with a note saying, "I heard you
wanted more knickknacks to dust. Enjoy.
Well, I'll fix those brats - the next year my son got
the fish for Christmas and a note from the fish. The fol-
lowing year he sent it to his sister. Now, 15 years later,
the fish has traveled from the north to the south and
back again. The notes are in a folder to be read each
One year it got lost during my son's move and did-
n't go north till the summer. It has resided with in-laws
and outlaws and grandkids.
This year, Christmas Eve my granddaughter asked,
"Who's got the fish?"
I had forgotten that I'd gotten it last year so (I) start-
ed looking. It was found up on a shelf in the closet. We
read all the notes and had a good laugh.
Now the fish is on its way back up north to my
great-granddaughter, who wanted to get it.
The note says, "Help - my old senile mother put me
in a dark closet and forgot me. Even though I don't like
the snow and cold, maybe you will put me on your desk
and talk to me once in awhile. I am so lonely. Please
love me. Am I that ugly that no one wants me?"
And so the saga of the fish continues. Long after I
am gone the fish will travel once a year to a new home.
Long live the fish.

Love one another
I am a descendant of natives, the Pen d'Orille
(Kalispell), Nez' Perce (Numi'pu), Cheppewa
(Ojibway), Spokane and African Buffalo Soldier. But
that is not where my ancestry ends. I am of the Metis'
Tribe also. A descendant of the history - making fur-
trading voyagers, the Scottish and French. I have
English knights on my tree. A little later Irish and
German. I can trace most of my lineage back to the
1200s. I am proud of who I am and my descendants,
before and after me.
Yes, I was born on the half-breed reservation as a
Metis' descendant, but was raised by Poles (Polish).
My mother and father were the first born in "America."
My mother did not speak English until she was 11
years old. She wasn't asked to stop speaking her lan-
guage or celebrating anything in her traditions (that
would not be right). So I dance the polka too, a bit of
Pole rubbed into my bloodstream. I love golabki (cab-
bage rolls), kielbasa (sausage) and pierogi (like a
stuffed dumpling).


Racism and greed are horrible things - they get this
world into so much trouble. People tend to forget
what race they are - the "human" race!
History is to learn from. It's written not to glorify
lies and people who are called .. i... -" when they are
nothing more than mass murderers. Learn from the
truth, learn from history. If biblical is what you like -
that is why God told the nation of Israel to record
events - to ensure that lessons are not forgotten.
Benefit from true history.
"Our fathers gave us many laws, which they had
learned from their fathers. These laws ... told us to treat
all men as they treated us; that we should never be first
to break a bargain; that it was a disgrace to tell a lie;
that we should speak only the truth ... We were taught
to believe that the Great Spirit sees and hears every-
thing, and that he never forgets; that hereafter he will
give every man a spirit home according to his deserts
... This I believe, and all my people believe the same."
Young Chief Joseph of the Nez' Perce.
I am a descendant of people who love people, and
I love people. I am not racist - I just know my true his-
tory. I am not anti-God, though I do believe in loving
my Mother Earth (that the Great Spirit created). I
don't justify myself to be heard but someone has to
speak the truth. Love one another! Revenge never
sins against your sisters and brothers, it's a losing
battle from the beginning, and no one is always win-

My sister also enjoyed herself that day. She

(My current and former foster children are
among many who have benefited from the kindness of
Santa's elves over the years. It's wonderful how the
community with the help of the special elves
manages to share with foster children. There's
nothing like the sparkle in a child's eyes when
opening a surprise package. It's the spirit of St.
Nicholas in Fernandina Beach. The children also
appreciate the wonderful community events such
as the parties sponsored by the local bar asso-

exist for those people who have not earned the
property. You might say, "Everyone deserves the
right to a home, clothes, a good job, a fair wage or
food on their table," but I ask you, "Do they not
already have the right to have these things if they
earn them?" "Does not having these things give
them the right to take them from someone else who
has earned them?"
As a society we have come to praise a man who
produces nothing of benefit and sacrifices his life for
the sake of others, and demonize a man who pro-
duces abundance and provides opportunity and
material for which we all benefit. If I were to give
you my shirt thereby leaving me shirtless does that
make me noble or stupid? If I refused to give you
my shirt, but taught you how to make your own, and
gave you a job making shirts for others, does that
make me selfish or noble?
There is a huge difference between giving and
sacrificing, and yet our society does not distinguish
the difference in the two. We are taught that any-
thing done for personal benefit is bad, and anything
done for the benefit of others is good; no matter the
consequences. All otherworldly troubles aside, this
is the plague that has infected and is slowly killing

the populous.
Allowing yourself to become sacrificial fodder for
all those with a perceived need is a surefire way to
personal destruction, and although you may be
praised for your selfless actions you will have con-
tributed nothing. If there is one thing this world
needs now more than ever, it is more contributors,
more producers, and more creators. The sooner we
can teach ourselves, and our children, to shake off
the strangling wool of the sacrificial lamb, and learn
to make our own shirts, the sooner we can move the
world forward in peace and prosperity.
The common good is not created through gov-
ernment policy. It is not created by the latest
bureaucrat who buys your vote. It is not created by
unconditionally giving to all those with hands out. It
is created through the growth and prosperity
derived from the minds and abilities of individuals
who have made the conscious decision to produce
and achieve.
Forcefully taking the intellectual capital of these
achievers for no value in return and giving it to
those who have chosen not to produce does not
induce equality. It kills the engine of innovation and
feeds the very implements of its destruction.






Letterboxing the new obsession

Y ou never know when some com-
pletely new phenomena will capture
your imagination. What a surprise
when my sister called full of enthu-
siasm for her newest thing. When my sister
gets enthusiastic, it is often obsessive. It is a
family trait. She is an intrepid traveler and
has researched and then traveled to some of
the most beautiful and interesting places in
the world. Sometimes I get to go too.
So what is this new thing she is in to?
Letterboxing. Letterboxing? At first, I pic-
tured some sort of martial arts discipline but
knew her better than that. Organized exer-
cise has never been one of her things.
Hiking, yes. Aerobics or yoga, no.
The more I learned about her new obses-
sion the more I could see the match. She
loves to hike and being outside, devours
maps, needs to escape her downtown
Boston digs and seeks new and unique desti-
So what is letterboxing? Think of it as a
mixture of a hike, a treasure hunt, problem
solving and a little artistic challenge all
mixed together. Letterboxers go online to
get directions that will lead them to contain-
ers that are hidden usually in beautiful out-
door settings. Off you go and try and solve
the puzzle presented. When you find the let-

terbox, that is hope-
fully a watertight box,
the adventure contin-
ues. Inside is a log-
book and rubber
stamp unique to the
box you have found.
You take your own
individual stamp,
stamp the journal in
the box, take the
stamp found in the
box and stamp your
logbook. The stamps
are clever and cre-
ative and always have
a theme. Stamps vary
- some are intricate

and artistic using multiple colors while oth-
ers are simple and store bought.
Letterboxing started in the moors of mid-
19th century Devon, England. A hiking
guide hid a container of letters that were
written to future hikers and left them along a
trail. It caught on and a wonderful open-air
hobby was born.
Letterboxers are a secretive sort and
shun publicity. Ironically an article in a 1998
Smithsonian magazine ignited interest in the
United States and it took off in the

Northeast and expanded into California.
People go to amazing lengths to hide a
box in a unique place and to design clever
clues that tease. Sometimes you need a com-
pass, but mostly a clever mind and a pair of
comfortable shoes.
You can letter box solo or go with a group
or your family. You can do it anywhere in the
world that someone has gone to the trouble
of hiding a letterbox.
Each letterboxer has a unique name. So
my sister, Boston B, her letterbox "handle,"
spent some of her last visit here checking
out Northern Florida's letterboxing opportu-
nities. Lo and behold, she found boxes hid-
den at Talbot Island, Fort George Island,
Fort Clinch and even Jacksonville Beach.
Her mentor cautioned her to do a lot of
searches before graduating to hiding her
first letterbox. With more then 50 finds
under her belt, she recently returned from a
trip to the very tip of South American where
she has hidden three letterboxes in the
Tierra de Fuego National Park.
Don't play golf or tennis? Maybe letter-
boxing is for you.

Salt & Light speaker
Amelia Plantation Chapel's
next Salt & Light series speaker is
VeedaJavaid, who runs 12
Christian schools in Pakistan that
are supported by the U.S.
Presbyterian Church. Pakistan is
98 percent Muslim and it surpris-
es many that these educational
institutions can survive there, and
even prosper, according to a press
release. Javaid also brings a per-
sonal perspective on the treat-
ment of women in Islamic culture.
Javaid will speak on Jan. 24 at
7 p.m. at Amelia Plantation
Chapel. E-mail speakers@ameli-
achapel.com or call the chapel
office at 277-4414 if you would like
to attend. The men of the commu-
nity are also invited to a Men's
Breakfast at the chapel on Jan. 25

at 7:30 p.m. Javaid will speak
about the political situation in
Pakistan. Cost is $5 at the door,
though reservations are required
by calling 277-4414.
The chapel is helping to bring
Javaid to the U.S. and will support
her schools through its Chapel
Benevolence, but it also invites
local church families to schedule
her for their own events as well.
Call the chapel, 36 Bowman Road,
at 277-4414.

For the News Leader

T he dream of a waterborne
superhighway that would
unite the nation and move
its commerce dates back to
the Founding Fathers.
Like many outsize dreams, realiz-
ing it took decades of determination,
engineering feats, financial wiz-
ardry, and lobbying. The Atlantic
Intracoastal Waterway now stretch-
es from Boston to Miami, fulfilling
its purpose of protected passage for
ships and boats, serving for com-
merce in some areas and recreation
along its length.
In this first comprehensive look
at the construction of the Florida
portion of the AIW, William G.
Crawford Jr. traces the roots of the
waterway back to the Founding
Fathers, through the history of the
Canal Era and its difficult path in
Congress and in Florida's young leg-
islature as one of the early private-
public partnerships, drawing upon
early records and land deeds, and
tracking the history of the men who
made it a reality.
The story of Florida's Big Dig
resonates with readers who have fol-
lowed other major construction proj-
ects, be they the extension of the

An oasis on a

Colorado mesa

For the News Leader
HOTCHKISS, Colo. - The drive from Las Vegas to this
mountain town near the entrance to the Black Canyon of the
Gunnison takes one through the high desert and rocky
canyons of Utah and southwestern Colorado. It can be a
very dry and dusty trip. A traveler is left with a world-class
thirst. But atop Redlands Mesa just west of Hotchkiss is a
lush oasis that can quench the most demanding thirst.
It is the Jack Rabbit Hill winery, one of the thousands of
small vintners that have sprung up almost overnight in
some of the most unlikely places across America. As I've
written before, it is these small, family-run wineries that
hold the future of American wine-
Jack Rabbit Hill is an estate win- &
ery that makes premium varietal I
wines from 22 acres of certified-
organic vineyards first planted in PTNERS
2000. The French concept of terroir P
- where a wine's character has
more to do with the soil on which the vines are grown than
anything else - is very real on Redlands Mesa, a broad, flat
rocky expanse with barely enough soil above the basalt to
support a few cottonwood trees and cattle pasture land.
The Hanson family has used organic and biodynamic
farming practices to create a very special soil base for their
vines. They annually produce and spread about 150 tons of
compost at a rate of 10 tons/acre (60 percent dairy manure,
30 percent apple pressings, 10 percent wood chips). They
developed powerful soils using a set of nine herb and com-
post teas - biodynamic preparations - to break down the
(In the 1920s Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian scientist and
philosopher, developed the principles of biodynamic farm-
ing that became the precursor to organic farming. In biody-
namic farming the soil continues to be a living entity in con-
trast to "dead" soils in which the nutrients are chemical
fertilizer and the dirt grains are laced with pesticides and
There are four blocks of vines at Jack Rabbit Hill, with
each block surrounded by protected wildlife habitat and/or
pasture. Sheep graze through the rows of vines to keep
weeds under control and add a steady source of manure.
Chickens roam freely, feasting on insects.
An assortment of red and white varieties that perform
well in this setting have been planted: pinot noir, pinot meu-
nier, chardonnay, riesling, foch, vignoles and cabernet franc.
My favorite is the riesling, created in the Alsatian style, off-
dry, but not sweet, a delicate bouquet of exotic flowers, a
soft fruit flavor (a contrast with the heavy fruit-forward style
of California rieslings) and a lingering citrus finish. I
enjoyed it both as an aperitif and with a seafood stew. There
was also a different feel of the wine on the palate, an earthi-
ness not usually found in riesling, undoubtedly the terroir of
the biodynamic soil.
The riesling is named "Lone Eagle" in honor of the lone
bald eagle that roosts in a 100-foot cottonwood tree on Jack
Rabbit Hill. Riesling is a cold-weather grape and it can get
quite cold here in the early autumn when snow is not a sur-
prise in September. Yet the summers can be blistering hot
on the mile-high mesa.
M&N is another interesting wine worthy of note, espe-
cially by pinot noir lovers. Pinot noir is a difficult grape to
grow and, as with riesling, prefers cold climates (why the
best pinots come from west-central France and New
Zealand). Yield has to be carefully controlled; the objective

made his high school days a liv-

September Dawn
(Historical drama. R. 111m.. 2007)
Tells its own version of the
Mountain Meadows Massacre,
when a group of Mormons
slaughtered a wagon train of
about 120 settlers passing
through Utah on Sept. 11, 1857
(a date that much is made of). Is
the movie anti-Mormon or an alle-
gory about the modern 9/11 ?
Take your choice; it's a nasty
business. The Mormons don't
deserve it, and neither do we.
Rating: No stars
Shoot'Em Up
(Action. R. 93m.. 2007)
The only film I can think of that
opens with the hero delivering a
baby during a gun battle, sever-
ing the umbilical cord with a gun-
shot, and then killing a villain by
penetrating his brain with a raw
carrot. Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti
and Monica Bellucci co-star in a
WAY-over-the-top violent action
thriller, redeemed by style and
satirical exaggeration, but still too
extreme for all but hard-boiled
action fans. You have been
warned. Deserves an R-plus rat-
ing. Written and directed by
Michael Davis, who knows what
he's doing. Rating: ***-2

'Bucket List' annoying in its premise


"The Bucket List" is a movie
about two old codgers who are
nothing like people, both suffer-
ing from cancer that is nothing
like cancer, and setting off on
adventures that are nothing like
possible. I urgently advise hospi-
tals: Do not make the DVD avail-
able to your patients; there may
be an outbreak of bedpans
thrown at TV screens.
The film opens with yet
another voice-over narration by
S Freeman,
extolling the
virtues of a
white person
iour rever-
ence. His
voice takes
Roger on a sort of
Ebert wonderment
�o - as he speaks
of the man's
UNIVERSAL greatness; it
PRESS was a note
SYNDICATE that worked
in "The
Shawshank Redemption" and
"Million Dollar Baby," but not
here, not when he is talking of a
character played by Jack
Nicholson, for whom lovability is
not a strong suit.
Nicholson plays Edward, an
enormously rich man of about
70, who has been diagnosed
with cancer, given a year to live,
and is sharing a room with
Carter (Freeman), about the
same age, same prognosis. Why
does a billionaire not have a pri-
vate room? Why, because
Edward owns the hospital, and
he has a policy that all patients
must double up, so it would look
bad if he didn't.
This is only one among
countless details the movie gets
wrong. Doesn't Edward know
that hospitals make lotsa profits
by offering private rooms,
"concierge service," etc.? The
fact is, Edward and Carter must
be roommates to set up their
Meet Cute, during which they
first rub each other the wrong
way, and then have an orgy of
male bonding. Turns out Carter
has a I..I. u .. i list" of things he
should do before he kicks the
bucket. Edward embraces this
idea, announces, "Hell, all I have
is money," and treats Carter to
an around-the-world trip in his
private airplane, during which
they will, let's see, I have the
itinerary right here, visit the pyr-
amids, the Taj Mahal, Hong
Kong, the French Riviera and
the Himalayas.
Carter is faithfully married to

Directed by: Rob Reiner
Produced by: Craig Zadan,
Neil Meron and Alan
Running time: 97 minutes
Classified: PG-13 (for lan-
guage, including a sexual ref-

his loving wife, Virginia (Beverly
Todd), who is remarkably
restrained about seeing her
dying husband off on this mad-
cap folly. She doesn't take it well,
but I know wives who would call
for the boys with butterfly nets.
Edward, after four divorces, has
no restraints, plenty of regrets,
and uses his generosity to mask
egotism, selfishness and the
imposition of his goofy whim on
poor Carter. That his behavior is
seen as somehow redemptive is
perhaps the movie's weirdest
Meanwhile, the codgers have
pseudo-profound conversations
about the Meaning of It All, and
Carter's superior humanity
begins to soak in for the irasci-

ble Edward.
The movie, directed by Rob
Reiner, is written by Justin
Zackham, who must be very
optimistic indeed if he doesn't
know that there is nothing like a
serious illness to bring you to
the end of sitcom cliches. I've
never had chemo, as Edward
and Carter must endure, but I
have had cancer, and believe
me, during convalescence after
surgery the LAST item on your
bucket list is climbing a
It's more likely to be topped
by keeping down a full meal,
having a triumphant bowel
movement, keeping your energy
up in the afternoon, letting your
loved ones know you love them,
and convincing the doc your
reports of pain are real and not
merely disguising your desire to
become a drug addict. To be
sure, the movie includes plenty
of details about discomfort in
the toilet, but they're put on hold
once the trots are replaced by
the globe-trotting.
Edward and Carter fly off on
their odyssey, during which the
only realistic detail is the interior
of Edward's private jet. Other
locations are created, all too
obviously, by special effects; the
boys in front of the pyramids
look about as convincing as
Abbot and Costello wearing pith
helmets in front of a painted
backdrop. Meanwhile, we wait
patiently for Edward to realize

his inner humanity, reach out to
his estranged daughter, and
learn all the other life lessons
Carter has to bestow. All Carter
gets out of it is months away
from his beloved family, and the
opportunity to be a moral cheer-
ing section for Edward's conver-
I'm thinking, just once, could-
n't a movie open with the voice-
over telling us what a great guy
the Morgan Freeman character
was? Nicholson could say, "I was
a rich, unpleasant, selfish jerk,
and this wise, nice man taught
me to feel hope and love." Yeah,
that would be nice. Because
what's so great about Edward,
anyway? He throws his money
around like a pig, and makes
Carter come along for the ride.
So what?
There are movies that find
humor, albeit perhaps of a bitter,
sardonic nature, in cancer. Some
of them show incredible brav-
ery, as in Mike Nichols' "Wit,"
with its great performance by
Emma Thompson.
"The Bucket List" thinks
dying of cancer is a laff riot, fol-
lowed by a dime-store epiphany.
The sole redeeming merit of the
film is the steady work by
Morgan Freeman, who has
appeared in more than one
embarrassing movie, but never
embarrassed himself. Maybe it's
not Jack Nicholson's fault that
his role cries out to be over-
played, but it's his fate, and ours.

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman play dying friends on an around-the-world adventure in
"The Bucket List," directed by Rob Reiner.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 11,2008/News-Leader


I would argue that the dialogue in "Juno" mostly
works because Ellen Page sells the tone so convinc-
ingly. She wins us over. Think of Diablo Cody's
words in the mouths of Page's contemporaries and
you cringe. Yes, her parents talk that way. Where do
you think she learned it? As for the drugstore clerk,
and her best girlfriend, it's as if she affects the lin-
guistic weather when she enters a room.
And here is Felix Vasquez of the Bronx, N.Y.:
"This movie has divided audiences around the
Internet. Some love its cute and intelligent way of
addressing teen pregnancy, while others hate the
pop culture quip-dialogue and put Diablo Cody
through the ringer for it. Yet they never seem to
complain when Tarantino or Kevin Smith use the
exact same sense of dialogue."
* * *
.1 keep reading about "Juno" having its debut
. in Toronto. I saw "Juno" a week earlier at the
Telluride Film Festival, and Jason Reitman and
Diablo Cody were both there in person. How does
Toronto get the "debut" status when it played in
Telluride a week earlier? - Tom Desmond, Aurora,

A What Toronto had was the official world pre-
.miere. Telluride never announces its schedule
until you get there and is allowed by some distribu-
tors to show films under the radar.

Q. On the strength of your naming "Juno" the
.best film of the year, I just took it in at my local
googleplex, and I was a tad disappointed, even
though I largely agree with your review. I was dis-
tracted to the point of annoyance at the implausibly
hipper-than-thou sentences zipping out of the lips of
"Juno's" characters. Juno was hip. Juno's friends
were hip. Juno's parents were hip. Even Rainn
Wilson's character, the guy behind the counter at
the store, was hip. Only Jason Bateman's and
Jennifer Garner's characters seemed to be spared
this indignity, probably to make some obscure point
about the evils of yuppiehood.
A wise reviewer once wrote: "I have a problem
with movies where everybody talks as if they were
reading out of an old novel about a bunch of would-
be colorful characters. They usually end up sound-
ing silly." Well, of course that reviewer was you, and
the movie was "Raising Arizona." So can you explain
why the affected English bothered you in one but
not the other? - C. Morris, Noblesville, Ind.

A Your local "googleplex"? We discourage that
. kind of hip coinage around here. Isn't "movie
theater" good enough?
Although you have caught me in a contradiction,

MOVIE Continued from 3B
Q As an aspiring young film-
* maker, I watch and
rewatch as many films as possi-
ble, around 7 to 14 a week
(which is tough with college and
work). A lot of the time I feel
like because I haven't seen
every classic or obscure film,
I'm less of a director because I
never gleaned that knowledge. I
feel small when I see PT.
Anderson or Tarantino display
their endless film knowledge.
I'm young, but I love film and I
hate when that love is ques-
tioned because I haven't gotten
to a certain film.
What are your thoughts on
this whole neurotic mess of
mine? Can someone of this gen-
eration, so far removed from the
birth of film, still make some-
thing as good as "Citizen Kane"
even if they haven't seen it?
(And yes I've seen it several
times. And no, I do not think I
could match Welles' genius.) -
Roy Hatts, Warwick, N.Y.

A Join the club. I feel the
* same way you do. Friends
of mine like Jonathan
Rosenbaum and Dave Kehr
seem to have seen every film

ever made - and David Bordwell,
Bertrand Tavernier and Pierre
Rissient probably have. There is
a suspicion in Chicago that
members of the University of
Chicago's Doc Films, the first
campus film society in the
nation, are BORN having seen
every film. But keep on watch-
ing good movies. And don't feel
insecure when you make them.
After all, Orson Welles watched
John Ford's "Stagecoach" 100
times before making "Citizen

Q So, should there be more
.Adam Sandler movies?
You'll get what I mean when you
read the New York Times article
headlined "Economists say
movie violence might temper
the real thing." - Michael
Mirasol, The Flipcritic.net

A I read the article, which
.incredibly explains this
possibility by observing that vio-
lent films "prevent violent crime
by attracting would-be assailants
and keeping them cloistered in
darkened, alcohol-free envi-
rons." A similar argument could
be made that movies about teen
pregnancy decrease teen preg-
nancy, that movies about reck-

less driving decrease accidents,
and movies starring Adam
Sandler reduce cluelessness.
David Poland at MovieCityNews
found a splendid headline for his
site's link to the story: "The first
stunningly stupid academic
'study' of movies of 2008."

Q In a recent AM column,
.you remark of the charac-
ter Judge Holden from Cormac
McCarthy's novel "Blood
Meridian": "I don't think the
Judge was drawn from any-
where except the recesses of
McCarthy's brain." Actually, the
Judge is lifted almost entirely
from "My Confession" by
Samuel Chamberlain, an almost
certainly hyperbolic description
of the real-life Chamberlain's
participation in a gang of cut-
throats of which the Judge was
second in command. See
Wikipedia on Chamberlain.
McCarthy improves on
Chamberlain, who improved on
reality, but all the basic elements
were there. - Dan Bigelow,
Cathlamet, Wash.

A I'm happy to know that.
SBut inspiration may have
more than one parent. Kirby
Fields of New York C(iy .' 'I'1

"I think he has more than a
little of the great white whale in
him from 'Moby-Dick,' as the fol-
lowing passage suggests:
"'He shone like the moon so
pale he was and not a hair to be
seen anywhere upon that vast
corpus, not in any crevice nor in
the great bores of his nose and
not upon his chest nor in his
ears nor any tuft at all above his
eyes nor the lids thereof. The
immense and gleaming dome of
his naked skull looked like a cap
for bathing pulled down to the
otherwise darkened skin of his
face and neck. As that great bulk
lowered itself into the bath the
waters rose perceptibly and
when he submerged himself to
the eyes he looked about with
considerable pleasure, the eyes
slightly crinkled, as if he were
smiling under the water like
some pale and bloated manatee
surfaced in a bog while behind
his small and close-set ear the
wedged cigar smoked gently
just above the waterline."'
Ebert again: I see what you
mean. OK, I'll now argue that
the hero of McCarthy's
"Suttree" is entirely the product
of the recesses of McCarthy's
brain. And don't write me about
Huck Finn.

Crawford has lived in
Fort Lauderdale, a city straddling
the Intracoastal Waterway, his
entire life and when not practic-

WINE Continued from 1B
is a quality wine, not large quan-
tity. The Hansons blend 45 per-
cent pinot meunier and 55 per-
cent pinot noir for their M&N,
which has a mild, kirsch-like
quality with a black fruit aroma.
Pinot meunier is a secondary
grape grown in Burgundy and
often blended with pinot noir in
the French province to create
some of the best Burgundy
wines. It is also a cold-weather
grape and flourishes in
Colorado climate.
Jack Rabbit Hill's M&N adds
body (and that earthiness) to
traditional pinot noir. As a result,
it is fine with heavier meats like
roasts and steaks for which a
pure pinot noir is usually too
light to handle.
Because Jack Rabbit Hill
seeks to create quality wines -

and doesn't have to worry about
volume to meet shareholder
profit expectations - it often
sells out its stock. Most 2005
and short-processed 2006 vin-
tages are gone, but longer fer-
mented 2006 and the 2007 wines
should be ready for sale soon.
Rieslings put down in October
should be ready by mid-sum-
mer. Other varieties have differ-
ent maturation dates.
Jack Rabbit Hill does ship to
Florida. You can find them on
the Internet at www.jackrab
bithill.com/wine or e-mail
