InI a Ilmove llhat lhas upset soll re l's-
idents, lthe Fernanldina 'Farllmers
Market has implemenll ted a new no-
pels policy.
Janl Smith.l market manager, said
thie new rules that went into effect
Nov. 1 arc simply meant "to comple-
mel0nt our famlliy-frienudly orientation."
Signs posted along the market's
periphery alerting pet owners to the
change also cite "safety, health and
insurance issuess"
Smith added that the new policy is
"lnot a ban on dogs," as serTvice ani-
mials are still allowed.
The F ernandila Farlmers Market.
open 9 a.um. to 1 p.m. every Siaturday
on North Seventh Street between
Centre and Alachua streets, has been
operating for eight years and features
more than two dozen vendors selling
locally grown vegetables and fruits,
plus local, fresh prepared food s aswell
as flowers and landscaping plants.
"The change (in tlie )pet policy) was
made for mitigation reasonss" Smith
wrote in an ellmail. "We have lhad no
rexp rled incident (s). It is our intend to
make the Fernandina Farimers Marketl
safe andi accessible for everyone,
which is why we implemented tithis
policy, which does mirrolr policies in

"Type I) personality and
depression are distinct mani-
festations of psychological
distress, with independent
cardiovascular effects," said
Johan Denollet, Ph.I)., lead
author of the study. "Our find-.
ings support the simultane-
ous use of depression and
Type I) measures to flag
high-risk patients."
The Type D personality
profile is determined using a
brief 14-item questionnaire
that measures social inhibi-
tion and overall mood.
Patients responded to phras-
es such as, "I am a closed
killed of person," and "I often
feel unhappy."
The alphabetic personality
tI,.--ili :Ili,,I scheme dates to
the recognition of the Type A
behavior pattern decades
ago, Ihe scientists noted.
Other types followed, and the
Type 1) framework arose in
the 1990s. Findings have
been mixed regarding
whether the Type A profile,
probably the best known, is
associated with worse cardio-
vascular outcomes. Traits

that define Type A include
competitiveness, a focus on
achievement, a sense of
urgency and hostility.
The Type D profile is rela-
tively new, but the number of
studies tracking Type D
patients' future health is
growing, researchers said.
Due to a lack of other data on
long-term prognosis,
researchers used their own
previous studies for the cur-
rent analysis. Recent studies
from other research groups
have uncovered biological
and behavioral pathways that
may explain this adverse
effect ofType 1).
Type D patients appear to
respond differently to cardio-
vascular stress. Type D is
associated with differences in
cortisol, a stress hormone'
that can temporarily increase
blood pressure. It also may
be related to elevated levels
of inflammation. In addition,
heart patients with Type D
personality may be less likely
to get regular medical check-
ups or communicate effec-
tively with their physicians.
The study was funded by
the Netherlands Organization
for Scientific Research.

Probation for man

shot by deputies

News Leader

A Yulee man who faced
felony charges after he was
shot by Nassau County
Sheriff's deputies at his home
after allegedly pointing a rifle
in their direction will serve
two years of probation as part
of a plea agreement.
Fernando l)ubose, 45, of
852760 US 17 North pleaded
guilty for convenience to
resisting arrest without vio-
lence and improper exhibition
of a dangerous weapon Oct.
28 and was given a year of pro-
bation for each offense.
Butl )ibose's attorney,
Gary Baker of Callahan, said
he thinks a jury might have
exonerated Dubose entirely.
"I would have loved to take
it to trial," Baker said Tuesday.
"My honest belief is that the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
pushed (the plea agreement)
so (Dubose) couldn't sue
them. "Part of the plea agree-
ment (included the provision
that there would be) no law-
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White, director.of the
Nassau County State
Attorney's Office, said the pro-
vision for no lawsuit was "not
unusual," but'the case would
have presented problems had
it gone to a jury trial.
"Based on environmental
circumstances, it would have
been difficult to prove to a jury
that (Dubose) intended to aim
at deputies," White said.
Dubose was arrested on
charges of aggravated assault
on a law enforcement officer,
resisting arrest with violence
and improper exhibition of a
dangerous weapon or firearms
for allegedly pointing a rifle at
deputies during a domestic
violence investigation involv-
ing his son in the early morln-
ing houlnrs of June 26(, 2(X)9. The
aggravated assault and resist-
ing arrest with violence
charges carried ma;xinlmum
sentences oft five and 15 years
respectively, had I)ubose been
convicted as charged.
The original charges
stemmed from an incident that
Ixt 'gan wlhin deputies reslpond-
ed to a 911 call of domestic
battery aLt )ubose's address
where the victim said her
boyfrilend and the father of her
child, Stepihen I)ubose, start-
ed a physical altercation withll
her because she didn't find a
job earlier in the day.
When she tried to leave lhe
threw a steel-toe shoe at her,
striking her in the back, an
incident report said.
Alter speaking with the vic-
tim at a Fernandina Beach
home where she sought
refuge, deputies went back to
Yulee to talk to Stephen

Dubose and were greeted at
the door by his mother, Debra
Dubose, according to a press
Fernando Dubose alleged-
ly came fiom the rear of the
home brandishing a rifle and
pointing it at deputies.
According to a police
report the deputies and a ser-
geant, who were all in uniform,
identified themselves and com-
manded him to put down the
Fernando Dubose then
pointed the gun at the ser-
geant, who dove to the ground,
damaging his stun gun and
flashlight, the report said.
But Baker said the Dubose
home and the surrounding
area, one of the last proper-
ties on US 17 before the
Georgia border, was com-
pletely obscured by darkness.
Dubose reacted to barking
dogs and had no idea author-
ities were present, he said, as
evidenced by a police video of
the incident.
"(As Dubose walked out-
side), a motion detector on a
front light at the home shows
Dubose to police and simulta-
neously blinds him," Baker
said. "They overreacted when
they saw the gun, shot him
and had to cover themselves."
Baker said the video clear-
ly shows that Dubose had not
pointed the gun at authorities.
"The best piece of evidence
I had was their own video," he
Two deputies fired at
Dubose, according to reports,
and one bullet struck him in
the abdomen. He went back
inside the home but soon sur-
rendered, according to the
sheriff's office.
Baker said the sheriff's
office ruled it a justified shoot-
"(The deputies who shot)
were never disciplined," Baker
said. "It would have harmed
their criminal case and
increased the chances of a law-
White said deputies acted
appropriately "without ques-
tion." but felt a jury might have
had a hard time finding
Dubose guilty beyond a rea-
sonable doubt.
As part of Dubose's plea
agreementn, he will not be pros-
ecuted for the aggravated
assault charge and will be
allowed to report for proba-
tion via mail should he leave
lhe state, according to court
He pleaded guilty as
charged to improper exhibi-
tion of a dangerous weapon
and guilty for convenience to
resisting arrest without vio-
lence, a lesser-included mis-
demeanor in a charge of resist-
ing arrest with violence.

A car price


With the buying cycle
being ain ever-growing ilnum--
ber of years, many new car-
prospects haven't shopped or
paid any attention to what a
new vehicle costs.
A chart published recently
by Edmunds.com showed
what you can expect to spend
when youi visit a showroom.
The average transaction price
is $29,217. You can translate
that into an average car price
of around $32,000 as an esti-
mate. The chart showed an
uptrend of 3.7 percent in 2010
over 2009, which is consid-
ered a healthy sign for the
industry. One of the hottest
car makers of late, Hyundai,
had the biggest percentage
increase at 6.4 percent.
Cars can be compared to
medical costs ever more
technologically superior, with
a cost associated with it. For
the auto industry, the big
improvementlins in fuel econo-
myl mandated into law by the
federal government will push
up prices, as a certainty.
Does $29,000 seem like a
lot of money? Data suggests it
takes less weeks of pay for the
average new car buyer to putr-
chase the average new car
than it ever has. The number
I have seen is 26 weeks of
income. Does that suggest the
average new car buyer makes
$58,000 a year? It seems to.
The X-factor right now is real-
ly low interest rates for the 80

Water gypsies
hawve ieeu a liv-
ing part of
Florida for al
least 100 years, and probably
longer. Flarlier than that, they
were more than likely pirates.
Somethimes they slay in one
place for years, sometimes for
a week, maybe less. Water
gypsies live on llteir boats,
usually smaller sailboats with
economical engines that can
propel them almost anywhere
around the state at some 5
miles per hour. When the
wind is right, sails push them
along at about the same speed
and at no cost.
The waterways in Florida
will take you almost anywhere
in the state, many, like the St.
Johns River, are stunningly
beautiful. Water gypsies canl
have an easy, pleasant life. A
few are wealthy, many are
poor, but it appears that all
enjoy their life on the water.
At the very least, it costs
almost nothing.
Strangely, water gypsies
are often vocal about what
they view as an affront to their
freedoms or a slighting of
their perceived rights. One
should think that they might
quiet their irritations, which
are minor at best, and stay
grateful for the largesse of the
waterways, towns, marinas
and harbors that are often
quite deluxe and which they
use at low or no cost. Mr. H.E.

Knickerbocker's churlish
viewpoint to the News-lIader
(Oct. 20) is an example of
water gypsy irritation rIun'eth
over. It was occasioned, appar-
ently, by his being asked to
leave our recently refurbished
boater's lounge at S:30) p.m.
one evening when the marina
staff locks the building for the
night. This inconvenience
apparently drove him to a long
diatribe against the city, the
marina and Westrec with a
grumpy mix of fact and
fiction published in this news-
To set the record straight:
We spent too much
noney in the refurbishment of
the marina. The planning was
done Ixoorly, we were ill treat-
ed in its execution. We spent,
arguably, twice ;Is nmuch ;Is \we
should have. It is thle major,
reason we have such a large
debt, which requires a paty-
ment of some $i56,itO.) tplr
year to pay back that which
we borrowed. But this is a his-
tory in which \Vestrec has no
part. It is fair to say, however,
that if our city had had a
knowledgeable partner at the
lime, we might have avoided
the present sorry financial sit-
Dredging, as we present-
ly have it done, is too costly,
but the city and Westrec are
developing alternatives which
will reduce this cost. It is vi'r-
tually certain, however, that

some amount of dredging will
always be required. It is the
price we pay for the marina to
be in its ideal location for our
town at the foot of Centre
Westrec receives 1 per-
cent of Ihe slip rental fees plus
their management fee, not 1
'I'cenltI of gross revenue, ass
Mr. Knickerbocker suggests.
While Wesirec receives no
part of fuel sales, they still'
negotiated our fuel cost down
to the same level they pay in
the operation of much larger
marinas. Our profit margin is
meaningfully higher because
of it. Additionally, our total
fuel sales are now over $1.2
million, almost 50 percent
higher than a year ago. This,
despite a heavy down market
in the boating world.
A portion of the BIG P
grant money we received
from the state paid for the
new docks at the south end of
the marina. By terms of the
grant, the city is required to
keep those docks operational

for 20 years for transient
boaters. We are arguably in
violation of lle grant lerms
because few of these slips
have sufficient water depth.
Our marina is thought
of, and intends to be, a marina
for transient boaters. While
local boats and long term slip
rentals are always welcome,
the higher fees charged tran-
sient boaters are key to finan-
cial success. Since Westrec
has taken over management
of the marina in January of
this year, boat nights spent at
the marina have increased
almost 50 percent over the
previous year. So far this year,
more than 10,000 boat nights
have been spent at the marina.
This means at least 20,000 vis-
itors to our town, an important
source of town revenue,
beyond that paid in Marina
Water gypsies may think
mooring in Mr.
Knickerbocker's pluff mud is
"part of the adventure" and
one will sometimes see them

at nights along the waterway
pulled off into the mud along
the riverbanks. Most yachts-
men wouldn't think of this, for
mud sucked into a boat's raw
water inlets is not a happy
In our marina, the situation
is different for at least three
reasons. First, when a vessel
sits in the mud at low tide, it
cannot be moved until the tide
floats it free some hours later.
Had this been the case during
the boat fire at the marina a
year ago, at least two more
boats would probably have
been destroyed if our marina
personnel and fn'e department
had not been able to move
them. They would not have
been movable if they were sit-
ting in Mr. Knickerbocker's
pluff mud. Second, floating
docks will last a long time -
when floating. When they are
sitting in the mud at low tide,
they are not uniformly sup-
ported, and the twisting and
tilting which results break
them. In our refurbishment
contract, we paid over $1.5
million to repair docks that
had been damaged in the mud
at low tide.
Had we kept the marina
properly dredged, we should
not have had to do this work.
Third, we are obligated, under
terms of our grant, to keep the
docks operational for 20 years.
Sitting in mud, pluff or other-
wise, is not optional.

The boating world
is a rather tightly knit commu-
nity. Lots of talkers. The word
on the water is that
Fernandina Harbor now
works and is getting even bet-
ter; it is the place to stop in
North Florida, "right down-
town in a quaint, pretty
Victorian village." We citizens
put up the money to fix our
marina, too much of which
was painfully misspent. And
there is more yet needed. But
we shall get it back many
times over in the years ahead.
In spite of Mr. Knickerbock-
er's complaints, we are on the
right track.
While many of Mr.
Knickerbocker's assertions
fall wide of the mark, he has
the last laugh. He has been
able to live on his boat in
Fernandina for more than a
year, using our marina show-
ers, bathrooms, TV, a comfort-
able, air-conditioned lounge.
For the time he has spent
here, it has cost him approxi-
mately $1.41 per day. An
attractive price for living in
one of America's "best beach
towns." Unfortunately, the
dire financial projections he
makes would surely come to
pass if he were our typical
marina customer.
I aspire to the life of a
water gypsy.

Rich with healing arts
A special component of High Tide
Women's Weekend last month was the
Healing Arts Fair. This event gave me a
glimpse into the plethora of healing arts prac-
titioners here on Amelia Island. I had the
privilege of working with some amazing indi-
viduals for this event. Their positive energy
and skills were an inspiration and a treat for
all who attended, and I wish to extend my
deepest thanks to them for their presence.
Elke Schreiber brought her massage table
and provided hands-on foot reflexology treat-
ments. Anna Schreiber, with Go Yoga, gave
the gift of relaxing chair massage. Susan
Caples and Nancy Deehan talked about the
benefits of the healing arts and provided reiki
sessions. Nancy Seyda and linda White. both
with Park Avenue Natural Day Spa, treated
visitors to natural nail care and chair mas-
sage. Tina Crawford, representing The Ritz-
Carlton Amelia Spa, provided education about
cleaner options for body care products while
Karen Miner, also with The Ritz-Carlton, pam-
pered visitors with facial peels. Able Rae, with
Nassau Health Foods, spent the afternoon
juicing a variety of fruits and vegetables and
treating us all to the benefits of fresh juice.
Teri Daggett, a well-known yoga instructor,
taught 20-minute chair yoga classes through-
out the afternoon. Tara Meyer-Robson, local
author of the inspirational book The Flow.
generously gave of her time and energy to vis-
itors to educate about mind-body connections
and life transformation possibilities. Linzy
Iauren, with Club 14 Fitness, mesmerized
us all with her beautiful demonstrations of
Body Flow. Karina Grego, with the local
YMCA. enlightened visitors about wellness
In addition to hands-on healing and pam-
pe-ing, several individuals representing com-
munity organizations brought awareness and

Mary Nuttall, Patty Sciarini and Kathy Kirwan
were present for Gerri's Corner. Jerry
Kawecki represented Y Yoga and Karen
Johnson represented Curves Fitness. The

quilts and increased visitor awareness of the
importance of creativity to radiant health; a
special thanks to Pam Wise and Linda Berry
Another artist, Karen McFadyen with the
Island Art Association, demonstrated the ben-
efits of another form of creativity as she paint-
ed a lovely fall scene throughout the after-
noon. In addition to the afternoon health fair
participants, a special note of thanks goes to
Suzy Sclheu(rmann, with Y Yoga, who taught
a morning beach yoga class, and to C.J.
Hetchka and Rachel Austin with Kayak Amelia

Lions ofFernandina
The Fernandina Beach Lions
Club is making a difference in o(ur
community. The club has never
been big, just a small group of
friends committed to helping oth-
ers who cannot help themselves,
and serving our community in many
other ways. The only restriction oni
what they do is that whatever it is, it
will make a genuine and a positive
difference in someone's life and inl
the community. Every dollar donat-
ed by the public to the Lions Club is
used to support its charity pro-
grams; not one cent is ever deduct-
ed for the administrative expenses of
the club or any of its members.
The Lions Clubs' 'iemnphasis world-
wide has always bee-n helping lih'

Where is the hope?
Agrc.n( dcail has been discussed

tlit r;iising iof It;ix s and lihe effct iof

mlaidc sniiall businesses who hire
emliployces. So april froml the tax

issue, does anyone get that small
businesses employing nto one' ;1-re
just as important to the economy?
lThe sole proprietors.
My business, Kate's Renaiss-
ance. as a sole proprietorship in the
almost four years oit existencei, lihis
used 155 vendors for jewelry mak-
ing supplies, shipping and packing
materials. festival sel-upti tquilpment.c
festival and market fees. online fces,
shipping and postage and so oni.
Several of the suppliers/venidors ;ire
small businesses who do have
employees. However, in most cases,
the vendors are also sole propri-
etors some suppliers, some
artists/artisans. Many are stay-at-
home moms trying to make a few
dollars for lunch money for their
children or to keep the electricity
turned on or to put food on the table
just necessities of life. So even
though I do not have employees.
my success (or lack of it) as a sole
proprietor does make a difference in
the livelihood of many others. Now
multiply businesses like mine by
(pick a number) and their success
holds up so many others or the lack
of success lets down just as many.
The common sense of it is the
proverbial domino effect! And twe
know it works both ways.
So, what is ny point? All. well, we
ar all going through extremely dif-

Happy fact make it likely that we will help our
fellow human beings in their times of need. but
It alsoltends to make us feel good about doing it.
Through the ages, wise men and women have
remarked that the best way to relieve our own
suffering Is to help those who are less fortunate
Helping others takes the focus off of our own
problems, and It just feels good. The flip side of
this is that'those who ar excessively devoted to
advancing their own happiness usually amr not
very happy, Happiness Is a natural byproduct of
Shelling others and the happiest people amr
usually those who ae most devoted to helping
others. Consider Mother Teresa, Mahatma

Turning a dip into something meaningful

"Hello," the woman said as she
pushed her cart closer to the regis-
"Hi," the young man replied
cheer fully. "How are you?"
"I'm great," she said, as she start-
ed placing items on the conveyor.
"How are you doing today?" the
woman asked.
"Oh, I'm fine," he said. "Today's
my first day working alone, but so far
things are going great," and with that
he began scanning her first item.
Item after item he went, as if he'd
been a checkout clerk for years, until
suddenly he came across something
he didn't know how to handle.
"Hmm," he said, as he looked at
his chart to figure out what kind of
vegetable he was holding. "What is

this?" he finally
"()h, that's a gua-
camole," she said
N with confidence.
"(;uacamnole, ()K,
guacanmole, gua-
camole ... I don't
see it," he sail,
beginning to feel a
PULPIT bit embarrassed.
NOTES Finally, with the line
backing up and his
own insecurity
Pastor starting to show, he
Rob Goyette decided to call for
Now if you're paying attention,
you know where this article is about
to go. Guacamole is not a vegetable,

it's a (lip made from avocados. Some-
how the woman checking out who
for dignity's sake will remain anony-
mous had gotten her facts and ter-
minology a little backwards. It wasn't
until the manager arrived that things
were cleared up. Funny, isn't it a
vegetable called guacamole? I'm sure
the young guy at the register felt a lot
better when he realized the problem
wasn't his. I'm sure the woman felt
like a smashed avocado. Needless to
say, she was a good sport and now
laughs at her ignorance.
I don't know why, but stories like
this remind me of our need for humil-
ity. let me explain. As a pastor, over
the years I've arrived at several theo-
logical conclusions. I've studied the
scriptures, prayed and listened to

thousands of sermons. As a result,
I've attained a certain level of under-
standing when it comes to knowing
God's thoughts and His desires for
mankind. I've also gained a decent
grasp of biblical terminology. The
problem, however, occuLs when in all
my knowledge, I think I'm a little bet-
ter than others and I develop a "know
it all" attitude. When that happens,
it's only a matter of time before my
so-called "spiritual progress" makes a
sudden dip (pardon the pun). This
idea of "knowing too much" is not a
new problem. Some 2,(X)0 years ago,
the apostle Paul spoke right to it.
"... We know that we all have
knowledge. Knowledge punffs up, but.
love edifies. And if any man thinks
that he knows anything, he knows

nothing yet as he ought to know. (1
Corinthians 8:lb-2)
That says to me that the problem
is not just in what we know, but also
in the attitude with which we know it.
Personally, I think it's why some of
our theology doesn't scan on heav-
en's scanner, and why oftentimes we
are stuck in line waiting for others to
get their act together, when in reality
the problem is ours. I'm talking about
me, of course, but somehow 1 don't
think I'm alone.
Thankfully, one thing is for cer-
tain. When the manager shows ul)

6-2 Yulee High Hornets earn first state playoff berth

NiVes I.cacder

With just five seasons under
its belt, the Yulee High School
football team has made the
state playoffs for the first time.
The Yulee Hornets face the
winner of the Trinity Catholic
and Mount Dora game in
District 4-23B.
"We would get Bolles in the
second round provided we
win," said Bobby Ramsay,
whose in his third season as
the head football coach at
"It's good motivation," said
sophomore running brick
Derrick "Shocka" Henry.
"We've got to still work hard.
lBefore we get there, we still
have two games left."
lHenry broke 2,000 yards
last week and scored his 27th
touchdown for the Hornets.
"It feels good, but I know I
still have to keep my head right
and make sure we keep on win-
ning and make it to the play-
offs and win," he said.
Yulee has two games left of
the regular season. The
Hornets travel to Fernandina
Beach tonight to take on the
Pirates (1-7). It's homecoming
"We're planning to hold
them and get a couple ofthree-
and-outs." Yulee senior Jeremy

u~~ ;ra ~~ -

The Yulee High School football team has earned its first-ever playoff berth in its fifth season and third year under
head coach Bobby Ramsay. The YIIS Hornets are 6-2 as they head to Fernandina Beach tonight to take on the
Pirates for FBllS's homecoming. It's another district match for the Hornets, who close out the season next week at
Paxon. Pictured, from left, are Hornets Jose Guilarte, Jeremy Deberry, Derrick "Shocka" Henry and Conner Petty.

Deberry said. "Play hard, stop
the running game and passing
game and win.

"We're trying to win one1
game at a time. We know we
have another game, a harder

gaime. Coming uip ill two weeks..
We're trying to keep our llhead
into that."

If the Hornets win the next,
two, they will celebrate an 8-2

"That sounds perfect," sen-
ior quarterback Conner Petty
said. "We shouldn't take any-
one for granted because weI still
have twow games left to play in
the reguakir season. Even
though we made thie playoffs,
we still have two tough games.
"Last year (Paxon) had a
few kids graduate that went
l)ivision I. We beat them pret-
ty bad last year and I think we'll
(lo just as good this year."
And if theI Hornets keep win-
ning and capture a victory in
the first round of the playoffs,
they'll likely see Bolles again.
Senior Jose Guilarte said'
he's looking for "sweet
revenge" if that happens.
"We didn't play to our fulL
potential last time (against-
Bolles), so I'm hoping next time
we'll have our heads right on
and not listen to all the hype
that we hear," he said. "We'll
(do better next time."
Yulee is coming off a 61-28
thumping of Interlachen Friday.
It was a homecoming and dis-
trict victory for the Hornets,
who hope to spoil the Pirates'
homecoming this week.
The Pirates lost 56-21 to
University Christian Friday and
fell to 1-7 on the season. The
Pirates are winless in the dis-
trict while the Hornets im-
proved to 1-1. Kickoff is 7:30
p.m. tonight.

Study:Don'tskip breakfast when you're trying to lose weight

M any try to lose weight not only by
exerlcising, but by cutting back lon
calories as well. While this is a
good idea overall, loo many will
make lihe mistake of cutting oul breakfast,
thinking they are getting a good start al cut-
ling calories, while they are simply getting off
on the wrong foot. Skipping breakfast ladls to
later cravings of higher caloric enriched foods.
Research from Maryland's Mtedical
Research Institute showed teenage girls wlho
regularly skipped breakfast showed a higher
body mass index, a common obesity gauge
wlen compared to those who didn'. G(;irls who
;ile a breakfast that included whole grain cere-
;il ended to have th lowest obesity scores.
According to( (he institute's iresidelnt and
s(ludy author Bruce Barlon, "Not ealing break-
Iast is Ille' worst thing yll can do, that's really
Ihll( lak(-Iom' Jwssage' f(or ('eenage girls."
ThI sllldy was published in thle Journal of
HIh American D)iettlic Association.

S According to thel Al)A,
more Ihan 40 percltl of girls
and 32 percent of boys skip
breakfast oIn a regular basis,
ldespitet the fact suldies Ihave
shown a positive correl-lation
between breakfast and per-
forimanice in attention span,

It was also shown that, as

cPDOTC more likely to skip breakfast

which led to inlcreascs inl
GRIG()RY weight gain.
SI m rTi. 1' New information from
il, M.D. iiurop may explain lhe plhe--
"'---. -- nomenon. Researchl from (the
Imperial College London showed that skipping
hIal first meal of thle day actually stimnula(es
your brain to crave higher-calorie or fatty

foods. Inve'sigatIors used functional magnetic
resonance ihllmagillng, which mlasiures brainl
blood flow activity to look al how feeding
behlaviors al'cted the brain's "reward" center.
Participalils initially skipped breakfast and
then underwent Ilhe MRI while looking at ran-
dom photos iof high- and low-caloric foods. The
high-caloric I foods included pizza, cake and
chocolate. 'I'lhe lIe llthier options included veg-
ctables, lislh aiid salh l.

Beaujolais fantasy

arrives Nov. 18

For the News Leader
t took me 20 years to
catch on. I happened to
be in Paris on business
the third week of
November in the mid-1980s
and we stopped into a small
bistro near the Claridge on
the Champs
Elysees and
found ourselves
in the middle of a W I"
big hoopla
because the IP i
Beaujolais nou- PA
veau had just
arrived. It was my first aware-
ness of this annual ritual
(blas6 New Yorkers don't pay
much attention to this sort of
hype). In the following years I
became more aware of this
event and even joined the
crowds to buy this simple,
young wine for Thanksgiving
The basic story behind
Beaujolais nouveau is.this: At
one minute past midnight on
the third Thursday of each
November, from little villages
and towns like Romaneche-
Thorins, more than a million
cases of Beaujolais nouveau
begin their journey through a
sleeping France to Paris for
immediate shipment to all
parts of the world. Banners
proclaim the good news: l.e
Beaujolais Nouveau est
arrive! "The New Beaujolais
has arrived!"
It has been carried by
motorcycle, balloon, truck,
helicopter, Concorde jet, ele-
phant, runners and rickshaws
to get it to its final d sltliiali11,n
All over the world, llirsly fan-

Then, a few years ago, as I
watched a helicopter deliver
the wine at the Amelia Island
Plantation, I got to thinking.
How do they get it from
Villefranche to Amelia Island
so fast? And at the same time
deliver it to Samoa and the

NERS the annual
Beaujolais nouveau
excitement, stop
reading here!
You see, it's all a myth; it's
a marketing ploy.!It is one of
the most frivolous and animat-
ed rituals in the wine world. It
began as a local celebration
when neighborhood vintners
would serve some of the
Beaujolais just fermented.
They served it from casks,
not bottled, because true
Beaujolais needs to mature: in
glass-lined tanks for six
months for generic Beaujolais,
and Beaujolais-Villages and in
the bottle at least two to four
years for crus such as
Brouilly and Morgan. (See
Wine & Partners Oct. 8)
But 60 years ago, the n6go-
ciant Georges Duboeuf, in
'order to sell more wine, intro-
duced the idea to Paris and
then beyond. More than 65
million bottles of nouveau,
nearly half of the region's
total annual production, is
now distributed and drunk
around the world. It has

used their hands and minds
to create powerful works of
Women of Vision is a
nationally recognized pro-
gram that is a unique experi-
ence for its participants. For
the past 12 years the group
of women, ranging in age
from 64 to their mid 80s,
have gathered monthly at
The Cummer to share their
experiences in art making,
memoir writing and explor-
ing the galleries and gar-
dens. The women are close-
ly banded and this
exhibition is a symbol of the
transformative nature of art,
both for the creator and the
"The work is not dis-
played because of their dis-
ability, but rather as a
unique group of people who
are wonderful artists using
other senses to explore the
world," said Associate
Director of Education Silvia
Romero-Brown. "Besides art
making, the women use cre-
alive expression through
artful experiences to write
poetry, personal memoirs
and dance."
Writer in residence Mary
Sue Koeppel has been work-
ing with the women for the
past 11 years and continues
to create inspiration in the
women's writing. hical pho-
ographer Ingrl d Damiani

has also been working with
these women since tlhe start
of the program and her pho-
tographs of the women par-
ticipating in the program are
on display in a slideshow in
the exhibition.
The Cummer has been
the venue in which to serve
as a national model of acces-
sibility and celebrates the
creative output of this group
of women. Through the
Women of Vision program,
the women gather at the
museum to find fulfillment
through the communicative
power of the visual and liter-
ary arts.
"The' women share their
recorded memoirs, they
paint, draw, dance and
sculpt passionately," said
Rolmerro-rown. "They cry
and laugh together candidly
and become close friends.
Audiences are usually
moved by their artwork and
poetry and are later sur-
prised by the Ilatulr of the
disability of thie artists, often
commenting on the quality
and ability of the artists and
the show as a whole."

WINE Continued from 1B
be the first to serve this new
wine of the harvest. By French
law, Beaujolais nouveau is to be
released no earlier than the third
Thursday of November.
In order to do this, the wine
is shipped weeks earlier; it is
stacked in warehouses around
the world, long before the hokey
race through the night begins.
Nature has nothing to do with it.
But what about the wine?
Beaujolais nouveau, although a
gimmick, does lighten up a gray
November r or december day. It's
never really bad; it's never really
good. Bul as a conversation
piece, it's great. As
Thanksgiving is about family
fun, it works well then, although

I prefer a cru Beaujolais, which
costs just a few dollars more.
Beaujolais nouveau is a pur-
ple-pink wine that is particularly
lightweight, even by Ithe stan-
dards of Beaujolais. The imetlhod
of production means that Ilhere
is very little lannin, and thie wine
can be dominated by fruity fla-
vots that one wine critic likened
to .Jell-0. The wine should be
served chilled, at approximately
55 degrees, about 10 Idetgrees
warmer than the normal refrig-
Beaujolais nouveau is intlend-
ed for immediate drinking, and
should not be kept for more than
a year. The wilnes show definite
variation between vintages, at
worst the wines start to decline
after Chrislmas; wines from a

very good year might still be
drinking well 12 months later.
My rule of thumb is to drink it
until Passover, then use it for lpot
If you are ever in Lybns -
Beaujolais country in late
October r or early November,
look for locals serving nouveau
out of the barrel. It is much live-
lier than the bottled version.
Andl on Nov. 18, Io join the
full and drink a glass of nouveau
in a bar or r'eslauranll or bring
some home for the weekend.
But after that, forget it and buy
some real Beaujolais.
