Restaurant

to be razed

next week

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A former restaurant and apartment complex is
expected to come down next week to make way
for a mixed-use development at the corner of
Beach Boulevard and AIA.
Developer Jay Parag confirmed Thursday that
demolition is tentatively scheduled to remove
the former Poncho & Cliarlie's Tex lex Cantina
and Breakwater Apartments.
Construction of the Ocean Pointe commercial
office center is slated to begin during the first
quarter of the year, Parag said.
Yellow tape secures the restaurant area, Parag
said, to ensure that no one is left in the building
when the demolition begins. The restaurant
closed to the public early last month, he said.
The tenants at the Breakwater Apartment com-
plex have also vacated and the building is empty.
The site of a former Texaco service station on
the south easterly corner of the intersection will
also be included in the redevelopment of the
property.
Senior Planner Bill Mann Thursday said he

AB to discuss

park violators

at Mon. meeting

by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
The Atlantic Beach City Commission Monday
will discuss a proposal to give the city's police
and park staff more authority to punish those
who don't follow the rules at city parks.
Among the changes proposed by Police Chief
David Thompson are that those who routinely
violate park rules can be banned from the partic-
ular facility for 30 days or up to a year, depend-
ing upon whether its their second or third viola-
tion. And if caught at the park during the ban
they can be arrested.
The meeting begins at 7:15 p.m. at City Hall,
800 Seminole Road.
In November staff members came to the com-
mission seeking help with what they said was a
problem with some youths not respecting the
authority of the city staff at parks.
They said that Parks and Recreation staff and
even police officers were getting no respect from
some skateboarders who were refusing to comply
with rules such as wearing a helmet at the city's
public skateboarding facility at Russell Park.
And that staff sometimes even had difficulty
closing down the skate park at night because some
skaters refuse leave.

Demeniuk trial begins


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF.WRITER
Leslie Demeniuk of Ponte
Vedra 'was watching Scooby-
Doo with her 4-year-old twins
John and James nearly five
years ago when she decided to
kill the boys, a prosecutor told
a judge in St. Augustine
Tuesday.
. On the first day of
Demeniuk's murder trial,
Assistant State Attorney Noah
McKinnon told Circuit Judge
John M. Alexander that
Demeniuk went to a nearby
closet to look for a gun while
the boys continued to watch
the cartoons.
McKinnon said she loaded
the gun, went back into the
bedroom and looked at John in
the eye while she shot him in
the temple. .
McKinnon told the judge
that the 36-year-old woman
then turned and shot at her
other son James, who was run-
ning away from his mother.,


"She chased him down,"
caught him at the bedroom
door, shot him in: the head"
then dragged him back to tlhe
bedside, McKinnon told the
judge. .
McKinnon was arguing
against a defense motion to
exclude the testimony of the
medical examiner, who is
expected' to help reconstruct
the murder scene.
Demeniuk has been in cus-
tody since the March 17, 2001,
shooting death of her sons at
her father's condominium in
Ponte Vedra Beach.
Defense attorneys Bill
Sheppard and Gray Thomas of
Jacksonville asked the judge to
strike the medical examiner's
testimony on the grounds that
it is "irrelevant" and would
"inflame" and prejudice the
jury.
Sheppard said the defense
does not argue with the point
that the cause of the boys'
deaths was homicide 'mmit-
ted by their mother.


"There's no purpose served'
'by bringing this person on [the
stand]," Sheppard argued.
"[His testimony] is brought
on fully for the purpose of prej-
udice."
Their arguments came after
potential jurors had filled out
questionnaires but before a
jury was selected.
Opening statements begin
today in Room 351 of the St.
Johns County Courthouse.,
Demeniuk is pleading not
guilty by reason of insanity,
which her attorneys say was
brought on by the use of anti-
depressant drugs and alcohol.
But McKinnon argued that
the medical examiner's testi-
mony will help explain evi-
dence presented by the state
and will also describe the way
the children were killed.
He said the description will
help establish Demeniuk's state

The Leader's Opinion

Girl Scouts learn

valuable lessons
The Girl Scout Cookie sale begins today, and
Beaches Girl Scouts will join thousand of other girls
throughout the north Florida region in this annual
fundraising effort. The door-to-door sale runs between
Jan. 6 and Jap. 23. Cookies cost $3.50 per box.
Proceeds from the-sale support individual troops
and the Gateway Council activities.. Local troops
decide how best to use the funds earned from the sale.
Money supports camp-outs and other outings or serv-
ice projects selected by the troop. The Gateway
'Council, which governs Northeast Florida Girl Scouts,
provides financial assistance to disadvantaged girls,
builds and maintains Council camps, arid funds vari-
ous other Council activities available to all local mem-
bers.
Girls participating in the sale learn valuable lessons
and skills which will last a life time.
In addition to supporting local Girl Sc6uts, a cookie
buyer can enjoy the familiar tastes of cookies popular
for decades. The Scouts continue to sell the Trefoils,
Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-si-dos, and Tagalongs.
Several years ago, a reduced-fat Lemon Cooler cookie
was added, and new this year, a Cafe Cookie will be
offered.
The USO and Girl Scouts of Gateway Council have
teamed up to send cookies to deployed military per-
sonnel through their Cookies From Home Program,
So, if you do not eat cookies, $3.50 can make the day
brighter for a soldier or sailor away from home. If you
perfer, cookies can be donated to local charity.
In addition to the door to door sale, local troops will
be selling cookies outside of area business between
February 24 and March 12.
For so many reasons. the Girl Scout Cookie Sale is a
fundraising effort worth supporting. Enjoy!

It's time to stand up

and support our team

For several years now, Jacksonille jaguars fans have
been wondering about the lack of playoff appearances
by our hometown NFL team.
Well, it's time to quit wondering. The Jaguars are-
where they haven't been since 2000, and we need to let"
them know that we're behind them 100 percent. .
In a season that has had its fair share of ups and
downs, the Jaguars have earned a post-season berth.
The way they earned that spot wasn't always pretty,
and often in a manner perhaps not as convincing as
we would like, but the postseason has arrived, and the
Jaguars are in the.thick of it.
Tomorrow, Jacksonville will be playing against a
rejuvenated New England Patriots team a team
which wants nothing more than to repeat its reign as
world champion.
This postseason has plenty ot teams which have pre-
'viousl" claimed that top 'spot in ,.th.NF ,,history
books. Jaguars fans are hoping that'It's' Ijf for the
Jacksonville name to be added to that honored list. :
Whether or not Jacksonville can rise to the occasion
remains to be proven ... theie are a 11 other hungry
teams that all want the same thing; only one of them
can claim theprize. .
But whether or not Jacksonville's playoff aspirations
come to fruition, as we all hope, or they end in tomor-
row's game against the defending champs, the resi-
dents of Jacksonville need to let our team know that
we appreciate what the Jaguars have accomplished,
and we will continue to support them in their quest
for excellence:
Are the odds.against the Jaguars claiming the brass
ring? Perhaps. But the Jags are in a much better posi-
tion to do it than 20 other NFL teams who are now out
of the running.
Win or lose Saturday, the Jaguars .have made us
proud this season and they deserve our continued sup-
port through the playoffs.
Go Jags!

Resolve to keep past resolutions


As we emerge, exhausted,
from the remains of yet
another holiday season
full of love and joy and all-
you-can-eat buffets, it is cus-
tomary to reflect upon the
past year and to resolve firmly
that next year; that elusive
butterfly, will be better.
Indeed, it is that sparkling
and magical time of year
when we all resolve to lose
weight, eat healthier, giveiiup
sodas, and generally be better
people.
Unfortunately, taking into ;
consideration the fact that the
last 16 years have maintained
roughly the same status quo
in matters of diet, exercise,
and morality in this teenager,
I have made my one and only
New Year's Resolution.
My New Year's Resolution'
for the year 2006 is to actually
go through with all'the reso-
lutions I have made in the
past.
This, in theory, is probably
one of my better ideas, right
up there with actually check-

favorite method of slamming

If I do this, not only do I
feel like-I have started the new
year by turning over a new
leaf, but I get away with not
actually doing anything, due
to the fact that I have com-
pletely forgotten all but the
mainAgit, of the rdiolotioamsnof
the past.
Yes, my friends, I took.the


easy way out this year. Instead
of actually trying to get in
'shape and failing miserably,
eat healthier and end up eat-
ing a complete pint of Ben
Jerry's, I have resolved to not
resolve anything substantial
I've managed to avoid the
post-holiday depression that
follows the inevitable realiza-
tion that as much as you want
to lose 10'pounds a week for
an undetermined amount of
time and/or give up steak, go
cold turkey, and pursue the
noble path of the vegan all in

planned.
However, siinply because I
don't have a set goal doesn't
mean that I plan to live
through 2006 in disorder and
entropy.

Getting killed by the crime rate


he crooks have got some
of us shook, especially
State Attorneyr Harry
Shorstein.
He's fired up over the fact
that Jacksonmille is being
referred to as the murder capi-
tal of Florida and that the
city's overall crime rate-has
gone up while the statewide
number has gone down.'
He's appealing for addition-
al funding. On December 2,
he was quoted as stating,
"Between murders and the
overall crime rate, we are get-
ting killed."
A record like that makes it
seem the gun racks in pickup
fruck rear windows aren't just
macho decorations.
Still, it's been bad before.'
Back in the 1870's, according
to "The City Makers" by Jax
historian Richard A. Martin,
"Vice and crime flourished.
Gambling and prostitution
catered in their more sophisti-
cated forms to the wealthy
tourists, and in their baser
forms to the riverboat men
and sailors, the woodsmen and
'hayseeds' in from the interior
for a fling on the town." .
It's understandable that this
atmosphere resulted in vio-

lence.
Martin wrote, "Jacksonville
newspapers reveled in details
of murders, such as that of
Christopher Ufer, a baker in
the suburb' of Brooklyn, near
Riverside.
Ufer, it was reported, had'
been found dead in his shop,
his head and neck riddled
with buckshot, and his body
lying on the floor in front of
his bench where he had evi-
dently been molding bread
when attacked."
It appears that even in day-
time he.should have had locks
on his door and maybe his
bagels, too.


The Jacksonville gunplay
reportedly continued at least
into the 1880's. Martin said,
"In 1884 young men still were
galloping on horseback
through the streets down-.
town, shooting rifles and pis-
tols in the air.... Newspapers
complained of wide open
gambling,, shootings, and of
the practice of young men
walking around the streets
armed with pistols and other
deadly weapons."
I reckon there wasn't much
crime and violence at the
Beaches back then. In fact,
there wasn't much of any-
thing, apparently.
Pablo Beach, now Jax Beach,
was just getting under way. If
there was any shooting going
on, it was possibly by prospec-
tive homeowners fighting
over lots.
I expect that there was no
garbage collection here at that
time, because nobody could.
afford to create garbage. On
the other hand, real estate
taxes, if any, were no doubt
very low.
Most likely, you could pay
them by returning a few
deposit bottles, Moreover,
parking was not a problem,
even on July 4th.

RHONDA REESE
REESE'S PIECES


It's

time to

move


back

home

sometime early this spring,
my husband and I will be
moving back home. Back
to our small house in an older
subdivision.
SBack to our familiar street
filled with loved friends and ,
friendly pets. Back to the f
neighborhood we've lived in .
for almost two decades. Back
to an area where we know, by
the sound of their cars crank-
ing, who is going to work and
where.
I couldn't be happier.
Though I adore the beauti-
ful little farm we purchased
two years ago, located six
miles from our old house, and
though I love working out
here during the day light, I
want to go home when it gets
dark. Living in this place for
the better part of the past year
has given me insight into
many things.
First, I discovered that big-
ger is not always better.
The. ancient stone and brick
housewe moved into at the
farm is almost twice the size
of our old house. At first it '
was fun to, have the extra
.space. '' .. .
However, it wasn't fun to
3pay the utility bills, especially
when three rooms were almost
empty. Nor was it fun to try
and keep the place clean,
especially since we realized we
were living in a place much
larger than our needs demand-
ed.
When Glenn was out of
town, the old abode seemed '
even larger. Though I'm not
the "scare easy" type,'staying
in a huge unfamiliar house
with squeaky wood floors, and
having no close neighbors to
call on in case of an emer-
gency, did leave me a bit
spooked. It also gave me an
appreciation of my mother's
courage. She has stayed at her
rambling farm house out in
the country going on this, the
eighth year after my father's
death. '
The second thing I learned.i
is that people can get by with;
a lot less than they may think
SBecause we knew our reloca-
tion was "experimental," we
took less than half of our fur-
niture with us. Before we
move back home, I'm going to
donate most of those items to
someone who needs them. I
now believe our old house felt
smaller than it really is
because it was crammed with
too much stuff. There is great
truth to the old adage, "less is
more."
Perhaps the most important
lesson mirrors what my
friends Jan and Jackie discov-
ered when they sold their
home and relocated to a
favorite lake front vacation
spot.
"It was gorgeous," Jan told
me when they returned to
their old neighborhood a year
. after they moved away and
bought a home two blocks
from the one they'd left, "but
I found out that paradise isn't
paradise unless you have peo-
ple you love to share it with."
Paradise also isn't paradise
when you have to spend every
free moment doing mainte-
nance on it: alk'gbout strain-
ing a marriage.
No home, we've decided, is.
worth stressing our family to
the breaking up point. I am
now looking forward to Glenn
and me tinkering at the farm,
having moments to sit on a
quilt under the huge oaks and
chat, and being able to enjoy
our menagerie of critters with-
out having to constantly fix
things up to make the place
more livable.


Many people traveled home
for the holidays. Our holiday
*left us knowing that a person'
real home is where their heart
is invested.

to: train, I learned what it.
means to push yourself to
achieve a goal."

fundraisers during a special
event prior to the marathon.
The two women raised

Tiny storage drives yield big advancements


W we've been trying out a
new.8-gigabyte disk
drive the sizeof a
large postage stamp. Expect to
see a lot of these in the near
future
The one we're working with
is from Seagate and has the
largest capacity we could find
among those currently avail-
able. You can also get drives of
this type, up to 6 gigabytes,
from Hitachi. They're 1-inch
disk drives, but the outer case
measures 1.5 by 1.5 inches (4
by 4 centimeters) and three-
sixteenths inch (half a cen-
timeter) thick. Let's face it,
that's small.
The. drive is designed to fit
into many of the newest digi-
tal cameras. You can tell which
cameras because the package
will carry a notation that they .
accept "CF+" or "Type II" cards;
the letters stand for Compact
Flash Plus. You can also recog-
nize cameras that accept these
cards by looking at the card
slot, which will be roughly
twice as thick as the slots for
,flash cards.
Plugged into a camera,
Seagate's 8-gig card will hold
over 4,000 photographs at 4-
megapixel resolution. Even if
you take high-definition 8-
megapixel photos, the drive
will hold more than 2,300 of
them. These numbers are
absurd,; of'course, but not so
absurd if you turn to saving
video and not just still shots.
Most digital cameras can also
take video now, some for 30
seconds or more. The card can
hold eight hours of MPEG-2
video, which is DVD quality.
SIf you have a flash card read-
er that accepts the CF+ size
card, you can plug it into the
computer and essentially have
a removable hard drive.
Interestingly, we just got a new
card reader from Edge Tech
(www.edgetechcorp.com). It
handles this kind of card and a
couple of others. You would'
plug the card reader into the
USB port on a Windows XP or
Macintosh computer, plug the
Seagate drive into one of the
reader slots, and as far as the
computer is concerned you've
just added an 8-gig hard drive.
We found Seagate's 8-giga-
byte 1-inch hard drive for
$250 at Radio Shack; a 4-giga-
byte version sells for $120 at
Amazon.com (Do a search on
"Seagate Compact Flash"). The


SCHWABACH
COMPUTER REPORTS

Edge Tech card reader sells for
$50, but that's because it docks
an iPod. You can use it to view
photos on your TV, or listen to
music on external speakers. If.
you don't want those features,
you can find similar card read-
ers for less than half the price.
Neither device requires a
.power supply, drawing the cur-
rent it needs through a USB
cable attached to the comput-
er.

OPENING UP WITH
OPEN OFFICE
OpenOffice is a free program
that offers essentially the same
programs and features as
Microsoft Office, which ranges
in price from around $80 for
the student/teacher version to
$400 for the standard version.
You can.get OpenOffice.as a
free download from
www.openoffice.org. Or you
can get it on a disk that comes
with a book, "Point & Click
OpenOffice.org" by Robin
Miller; $30 from Prentice Hall
($20 from Amazon.com).
That's the way we got ours,
and we think it was well worth
it because of all the useful tips
and easy-to-follow instruc-
tions, including videos. The
book conies with OpenOffice
for Windows or Linux, take
your choice.
The book takes a project
approach to learning"
OpenOffice. You create an
advertising flier, a slide show, a
spreadsheet and a database.
There are sections for beginner
and advanced users, and both
are very readable.
We learned that in
OpenOffice you can add a car-
toon thought bubble to a
photo or drawing just by click-
' ing on one at the bottom of
the screen. MS Word has this
feature as well, but to get to it
you have to choose a shape
from the shapes menu.
OpenOffice also lets you drag


an image and drop it any-
where on the page, which you
can't do with Word, And you
can turn any document into a
PDF, so that it retains its for-
matting.
On the downside, we had
some trouble creating business
cards in OpenOffice, but doing
it in Word was also awkward.
If you want to make business
cards, it's easiest to do it in a
free program you can get from
Avery (www.avery.com).
Most important, any
OpenOffice documentcan be
saved as a Word document,
any spreadsheet can be saved
as an Excel file, and any pres-
entation can be viewed by
PowerPoint users.

ICLONE,,YOU CLONE
Online gamers will like this
one. Many online games allow
players to create their own
characters. Now, with iClone,
they can even put their own
faces on them. We used it to
turn Bob into a 3-D warrior in
just a few clicks.,
The same technique can be
used to personalize animated
,characters in chat rooms. You
might enjoy using it to put a
face on cartoon characters on
a Website, or in screensavers
and mobile phone displays.
Moving beyond faces, you
can import whole scenes with
Background music. If you want
to experiment a bit, there's a:
free trial of this at www.reallu-
sion.com. The standard ver-
sion of the program is $80.
The advanced version is $180.
NUMBERS REPORT
The blog is turning into the
blob, a giant phenomenon
reaching tens of millions of

Pew Internet report, 7 percent
of the 120 million adults in
the United States using the

On April 1', 1940, the Danish training ship, the Denmark,
passed Mayport as it traveled in the St. Johns River. Local
students, including' retired Master Mariner Captain William
R. Parker, were allowed to leave school to Watch the ship.
This was the same day that the German forces took control
of the,country of Denmark during World War II, said Parker.
The ship remained in the United States for the duration of
the war and was used for training by the Coast Guard. The
Denmark returned to Denmark after the war.

Alexander decided to allow the medical exam-
iner's testimony, limiting it to the explanation
of evidence and Demeniuk's possible state of
mind.


The pool of 78 potential-jurors spent Tuesday
morning filling out questionnaires to help the
opposing sides select members of the jury. The
questionnaires asked the jurors how they felt
about the death penalty and insanity pleas,
among other subjects. The jury was selected
Thursday. The trial continues today at 9 a.m.

With a total of 166,000
square feet, Ocean Pointe will
feature two and half, levels of
garage parking and 75,000-
square feet of commercial
office space.
The building's first floor
includes a main lobby, 3,500-

spaces will be located on both
the second and third floors


with access from 2nd Street.
Floors four and five will each
contain 35,000-square-feet df

Because the five-story build-
ing exceeds 50,000-square-feet,
city staff was required to
rezone the property from
Central Business District to
Redevelopment RD zoning
according to the Land
Development Code.
The project was approved
prior to the 35-foot height

With a total number of 254


parking spaces, the project also
exceeds the required amount

Code.
By eliminating the existing

the Ocean Pointe development
provide "more than adequate

The Community
Redevelopment Agency unani-

FREE T'ai Chi Class

at the Beach


T'ai Chi is fast. becoming
one of the most popular
forms of movement recomr-
mended by such health insti-
tutes as ,the Mayo Clinic,
Johns. Hopkiiis and the.
:Harvard School of Medicine.
What is T'ai Chi and why is
it attracting so much atten-
tion? T'ai Chi is a form of
exercise that incorporates
relaxation, strengthening of
the: body While increasing
overall' flexibility and bal-
ance. Additional benefits lie
in its natural meditative qual-
ity which helps to quiet our
busy lives. Though it originat-
ed in the ancient traditions of
China, T'ai Chi fits into our
Smodern'world with ease.
While the martial aspects of
T'ai Chi are clearly its.roots, and
are always present, consciously
or unconsciously, in.the prac-
tice of the form, it is the healing
quality of the art that seems to
attract people today. Without a
doubt many of us are living an
over busied and stressful exis-
tence which is out of balance'in
most, if not all, areas of our life.
This is exactly where T'ai Chi
comes in.
First, T'ai Chi is obviously a
physical action. The slow,
patient movements engage
the body in a fluid sequence of
weight bearing exercises
which enhance all aspects of
our physical being. Immediate
benefits include strengthened
legs, increased flexibility and.
mobility of the joints,

improved balance and a sense
of relaxation. On subtler lev-
els, the practice of T'ai Chi cir-
culates vital energy (chi)
throughout the body, bringing
nourishment to our' bones,
muscles, tissues and organs. It
won't make us live forever, but
it should help us enjoy more
of our life while we are here.
The mental and emotional
realms of. our lives are also
affected by T'ai Chi. This is
less obvious to the casual
observer, but students of T'ai
Chi have a nearly universal
experience of finding
increased mental clarity and
focus. The emotions, as well,
tend to find a more natural
and relaxed state of balance.
We can slow down if not on
the outside, certainly on the
inside. There is something in
the doing of this work that
seems to clear our blocks and
stuck places, allowing us to be
less captive in our lives.


T'ai Chi helps us recall our
innate .spiritualism. We all
have spirit, and that spirit is
always yearning for unity with
the divine within and without'
ourselves. The discipline of a
regular practice of T'ai Chi
evokes this state of grace. It is
in this area of inner quiet that
we can experience our true self.
Finally, T'ai Chi works for
everyone. There are no spe-
cial skills, athletic ability, or
other experience required.
Our classes are offered to all
as a place where we can come
together for some work and
play as we explore the poten-
tial of our being. Regardless
of your age, occupation or
heritage, T'ai Chi can enrich
and improve your life.
New classes begin each sea-
son our next class starts

OPINION


Girls soccer resumes winning ways


As regular season winds

down, Senators focus on

postseason tournaments


ROB
DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

What's all

this chatter

about lack

of respect?

E enough already with the
Rodney Dangerfield act.

In the past week we've been
subjected to New England
Patriots quarterback Tom
Brady claiming the media
doesn't respect his team,
members of the Jacksonville
Jaguars saying no one respects
their chances in the playoffs
and Texas Longhorns players
and coaches maintaining they
were disrespected by the
media and their Rose Bowl
opponents, USC.
Hey, Fredo Corleone,
respect is something you
earn. Texas is now respected
because it upset Southern Cal
and became college football's
national champion.
Jacksonville can earn respect
if it pulls off a similar feat by
dethroning reigning Super
Bowl champion New England
in Foxborough Saturday
night.
And Brady's comments are
simply off the wall. Everyone
in the NFL respects what the
Patriots have done by win-
ning three of the past four
Super Bowls. The team is a
dynasty arid until someone
knocks the Pats out of the
playoffs, they're among the
favorites to make it to Detroit
for this season's title game.
And what's the big deal
about respect, anyway? It's
something you earn but can't
spend. It has no value.
Let's say, hypothetically,
every single member of the
media thinks the Jaguars have
no shot of beating the
Patriots. Let's go a step further
and theorize every New
England coach and player,
feels the same way.
Can any of that influence
how Jacksonville plays at
GilletteStadium on Saturday?
Are Jaguars players' egos so
fragile that if they feel disre-
spected they can't make the
blocks, tackles, passes, runs
and catches necessary tO play
the game?
Of course not. These are
professional athletes who
have been playing football
since the Pop Waner level
and they're certainly not
going to seize up because they
feel disrespected.
In fact, many athletes use
that perceived lack of respect
as a motivating factor. "You
think I'm not good enough?
I'll show you."
Butit's usually an internal-
ized feeling that stokes an ath-
lete's inner drive yet is not ver- *
balized. Lately, however, in a
further Oprah-ization of the
country, players feel compelled
to talk about their feelings and
emotions. Somewhere, Phil
Dpnahue is smiling.
With all this chin music
about respect, you have to
wonder if today's coddled ath-
letes have become too sensi-
tive. They claim not to read
newspapers or listen to sports
talk radio but negative press is
awfully hard to avoid. Even if
they don't read it or hear it :
themselves, someone in a
player's circle of contacts is
likely to let him know about
it.
The Jaguars may have a
marginal case regarding lack
of respect because it seems
Pats coach Bill Belichick
intentionally lost the last
game of the season to face
Jacksonville in the first round
of the playoffs rather than
Pittsburgh.
But the score will still be
zero-all as the teams take the
field in chilly Foxborough. If
the Jaguars want to earn gobs
of respect from the media,
fans, the Patriots and
Belichick, all they have to do
is win.

Jaguars ready for New England showdown


Some similarities from when

teams last met in postseason


Photo by ROB DeANGELO

ular season game. The Jaguars, an AFC wildcard winner, travel
to Foxborough Saturday to take on the New England Patriots.


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST.

Maybe six years have gone by
since the Jacksonville Jaguars
met the New England Patriots
in a playoff game; but for old-
time fans the memory lingers.
The Jaguars won that .game,
played at Alltel Stadium, 25-10,
but it was far from the runaway
it might seem from the score.
There are facts from
the 1999 game that
sound a little like .
the 2006 contest.
In the first play- I
off game to
take place on
Jags' ground,
the starting
quarterback
for coach Tom
Coughlin's team, Mark
Brunell, had missed three
games with an ankle sprain.
Sound familiar? Current
Jacksonville starter Byron
Leftwich has missed five games
since breaking his ankle on
Nov. 27.
This is not to compare
Brunell to Leftwich, but who
knows how being out of action
for a couple of months will
affect this current quarterback?
The Patriots were also hin.


dered as their starting QB,
Drew Bledsoe, was out and
replaced by Scott Zolak. The
change was obvious because
New Englafid didn't score on
its eight first half possessions.
By the same token, the
Jaguars scored, only on three
field goals by Mike Hollis in the
first half and had trouble find-
ing the end zone.
Jacksonville's 9-0 lead was
cut in' the third when the Pats
scored a touchdown,
S then added a
esF' field goal in
j the fourth
J to give New
England 10
p; points.
.' A 37-yard
pass from
Brunell to Jimmy
SSmith took that away
,& and Hollis added his
-" fifth field goal, a 21-
yarder, to ice the game as the
Jaguars defense denied New
England any more scoring
opportunities.
The result wasn't so good
when the Jags met the Patriots
in the 1996 AFC
Championship- game in
Foxborough on Jan. 12, 1997.
That was Jacksonville's third
layoff game and followed
thrilling wins over Buffalo and
Denver. But the Jaguars' Super


Bowl aspirations got chilled -
literally against the Patriots.
On a cold New England
night, things got off to a bad
start when punter Bryan Barker
was tackled trying to field a
high snap on his own 4-yard
line. The Patriots went on to
score the first touchdown of
the. game and held that lead,
finally winning 20-6. The Jags'
points came courtesy of two
Hollis field goals.
Except for the 62-7 battering
they gave the Miami Dolphins
at Alltel on Jan. 15, 2000 the
Jaguars have never won anoth-
er playoff game.
Strange how the lesser plays
have meant so much in these
games. Time after time, the
field goal, not the dazzling run
or the exciting long pass that
has meant the difference.
In the first playoff game at
Alltel, in Jan. of 1999, kicker
Mike Hollis, the diminutive ace
who won so many games for
Tom Coughlin and was nick-
named "Mighty Mouse" after
the cartoon character, secured
the win with his four field goals
- not Jimmy Smith, nor Fred
Taylor, nor Brunell.
In Jacksonville's first wild-
card game in 1996, the team
upset Buffalo, 30-27, and
became the first road team to
win there in the postseason.
Again, it was four field goals by
Hollis that did it, the last one a
45-yarder.
Could Josh Scobee become
the Jaguars' hero on Saturday
in New England?

FISHING




All in all, 2005 has to be




considered a great year


quick review of our 2005
fishery has to bring a
smile to your face. I
know it does to mine. After all,
you don't have to look very far
to see that beautiful 1,300 feet
of concrete structure stretching
out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Yes, the new Jacksonville
Beach' Pier opened in
December of 2004 but that was
the offseason for pier fisher-
men. The real test began in
March of 2005. Would the fish
show up or would it take years
for the new pier to attract
them?
There were plenty of people
saying the latter would be true.
But just as March follows
February, the fish did indeed
show up for the annual spring
run. Whiting, trout, flounder
and even sheepshead were'
caught.
There is even a new set of
"groupies" at the pier. Two of
them, Mike Youngblood and
Catfish Miller both used to fish
on the old pier. Now they've
earned new nicknames,
"Grumpy Old Men." But they
do fish well.
When the kingfish season
came around, a whopper
weighing in at 53 pounds
kicked off a parade of kings
caught from the pier that
stretched 81 fish long. The

ROGER WALKER
COLUMNIST


highest single-day total'was 13
fish and. around 50" were
caught during the month of
July alone.
As the fall rolled around, the
jumbo red bass showed up
around the pier: as they, fol-
lowed the annual mullet run.
Twenty-pound fish were com-
mon and many an angler who
was fishing for whiting was
.dragged down the length of
the pier by a big red bass. There
were really way too many,
caught to even estimate a true
number.
The'pier was a definite suc-
Scess.
Competition kingfishermen


had a great year especially the
ones in the Southern Kingfish
Association's (SKA) pro divi-
sion. Jacksonville and
Jacksonville' Beach anglers
dominated most of the events
and won the prestigious Angler
of the Year award. Another big
success for the 2005 season.
The Greater Jacksonville
Kingfish Tournament was
fished in nearly perfect condi-
tions. There was.plenty of bait
in,,the form of pogies. The
water was clear, the fish were
:biting, and they were big. It
took a 35-pound fish, or better,
to get into the money. Add to
that a small boat was fishing
no farther than five miles away
from the mouth of the St.
Johns River catching the win-
ning fish.
That was the good news. The
bad news is that kingfish tour-
nament participation statewide
has been down and the Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament felt that ill effect
as well, fielding only 801 boats.
In past years that, event has
been a sellout at 1,000 boats.,
Since.Sept. 11 occurred, fish-
ermen have seen an increased,
presence from law enforce-
ment mainly around mili-
tary bases and shipyards. That
presence mainly keeps, fisher-
men out of sensitive areas and


some very good fishing spots. a
small price to pay for our safe-
ty.
This year, the marine patrol,
along with the 'Coast Guard,
now has added more vessel
checks and fishery .checks,
which is a good thing for area
fishermen.' Checks are being
conducted offshore now as
well as inshore.
On the fishery front, there's
good news in most cases. Area
surf fishermen have had a ban-
ner'year with, the usual number
of whiting and a much better
than usual catch of pompano.
SInshore, in the intracoastal,
the fishing for small red bass
has been business as usual. The
area here that has gotten better
is the trout fishing. Huge num-
bers were caught late in .the
year.
Offshore we had a banner
year on red snapper but the fall
grouper season was way off the
mark. As mentioned earlier
about the kingfish catches on
the pier, the offshore action
was excellent as well. Cobia
and amberjack catches were
.'both down. Way offshore the
spring run of dolphin was
almost non-existent while the
fall sailfish run was impressive.
I must say, all in all, 2005
was a great year. Good luck and
good fishing in 2006.


Water-relatedinjures are more



susceptible .to serious i nation


L giving where we do, we are
surrounded by water and
have the opportunity for,
many marine based activities.'
Surhng, fishing, boating, and.
skiing are a few examples of
how we have fun on the water.
However, the water alsq,ptrp-
"vides a unique- en.vir efi'nt
for the development of infec-
tions. For example, one- an:
easily become cut while climb-
ing into a boat, or from the
shells on the shore.
Fisherman are susceptible to
getting stuck not only by
hooks, but also by the spines of
fish. These types of injuries can
cause serious infections and,
therefore they should be taken
seriously and properly treated.
Wounds which occur in
water based situations have


much higher infection rates
than, similar injuries which
occur on land. Lakes, streams
and the ocean contain multi-
ple bacteria.
For example, there are likely
100 million bacteria contained


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR
within a liter of seawater.
Therefore, when a wounddoes
occur here, it should be consid-
ered contaminated and poten-
tially infected. .
While there are common.
bacteria such as staph and
strep in water based environ-
ments,'thete are also different
bacteria in the water than
those that are commonly
found on land, and these can


be much more aggressive. For
example one such bacteria
species called Vibrio, produces
severe skin infections that can
lead to rapid skin destruction
I"flesh eating bacterial and
death in as short as 24-48
hours after injury.
.In August,- a -45-year-old
Jacksonville woman, Candace
Scott, died from another type
of flesh-eating bacteria that she
contracted while riding a per-
sonal watercraft on the St.
Johns River. She had sustained
a cut on her leg while in the
water, and died a short time-
later.
These types of infections are
more common in people with

BARBARA
MATHESON
GARDENING
COLUMNIST


Wintertime


mode begins

in earnest

H appy new year.
Although there typical-
ly is not much in the
way of gardening or yard con-
cerns in November and
December, we are now back in
the "wintertime" mode, which
is the perfect time to take care
of some important, gardening
tasks.
My aim is to assist you in
being a good steward of the
environment, and to that end
there are some important
things to do this month.
First is that you can put
your lawn and its doubles out
of your mind for the month.
Except for hand pulling weeds
and controlling your irrigation
system manually, we can pretty
much forget the lawn for a few
more weeks.
However, this is a good time
to have the soil tested if you
are seeing problems in your
lawn, because the pH of the
soil definitely has an effect on
the production of healthy,
green grass.
To take a soil sample, collect
about a tablespoonrof soil from
several problem areas, and put
the samples in a Ziploc bag or a
small jar.
Take the sample to your
County Extension Office, fill
out a form.aridthen wait a few
weeks for the results.
Included in the report.willbe
recommendations of what you
need to do to improve your
soil, if you need to do any-
thing.
But please do not automati-
cally apply lime. This should
not be done in the South with-
out first doing a soil test.
Second, this is a perfect
time to do some pruning of
dormant trees and shrubs. We
will see crape myrtles being
hacked to death, which I am
hoping will become less and
less as the word spreads that
this is a no-no.
To open up the crape, or
remove a few branches that are
growing into the house, over
the driveway, etc. is fine, but to
remove all of the stems to the'
spot where you did last year is
detrimental to the plant.
Current horticultural recom-
mendation is to leave the crape
alone.
However, there are numerous
other plants .that can be
pruned during January and
February. Any of the evergreen
ones, except for those that
bloom in the spring( azaleas,
hydrangeas, etc.), do well if
they are pruned now.
In fact, what we call "drastic"
pruning can even be done to
these during their dormant '
time. For example, a hearty
hedge of ligustrum may have
grown so out of bounds that
you'll need to take loppers and
remove a third or even a half
of the plant; this is OK if done
now during dormancy. It may
look nasty for a month or
more, but when the new
growth starts, it will fill in very
nicely.
Many fruit trees such as
peaches, nectarines, etc. may
need to have a few branches
removed to open up the center
of theeplant. This allows sun to
get inside and it is critical for
good fruit production.
Both bunch and muscadine
grapes need to be pruned no'w.
They' require different types of
techniques, and I recommend
that you callyour Extension
Service Office (904-209-04 30 in
St. Johns County; 387-8850 in
Duval) and ask to speak to a
Master Gardener to get the
lowdown on how to prune
grapes.

Glenn


Miller

Orchestra

at Wilson

Center

by JOHNNY WOODHOLUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Glenn Miller's death during
World War II is cloaked -in
mystery, but it's no secret
why hIis music lives on
decades later.
"The great Miller sound
itself keeps his music and his
name alive," said Larry
O'Brien, musical director for
the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
"If anything, I honestly
think, the authentic Glenn
Miller music today is more
popular with more people
than ever before."
The orchestra performs at
7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Wilson Center for the Arts, on
the Florida Community
College at Jacksonville's
South Campus off Beach
Boulevard.
Tickets for the concert,
which is part of the FCCJ
Artist Series, are $26.50.
Miller, 40, was at the height
of his popularity as an enter-
tainer foi the troops when he
boarded a single-engine plane
for Paris on Dec. 15, 1944.
The aircraft vanished over
the English Channel and was
never found. Miller, a captain
in the Army's Air Corps, was
officially declared dead a year
later.
His music, on the other
hand, has never died.
Miller's estate authorized
the formation of a tribute
band in 1956. The group is

Matheson: Workshops on gardening


Continued from B-1
About the only fruit that
does not typically get
pruned is citrus; blueber-
ries, blackberries, etc. need-
it done, too.
Ornamental trees such ,
as the loquat, the weeping
yaupon holly, bottlebrush
tree, and chaste tree all
need to be pruned now.
They bear flowers on the
new growth. i
Other trees, such as live
oaks, maples, drake elms,.
birches, etc. may benefit from
the removal of some limbs.
Here are a few rules for
removing branches: 1. Any dis-
eased or dead wood should be
removed. 2. Any branch that is
rubbing another to the degree
that the two could grow as
one should be removed, and 3.
Any low hanging branch that
obstructs the sidewalk, drive-
way, hits peoples' heads, etc.
should be removed. Also, con-
sider removing some of those
low branches if they obscure
your house.
Do not make a flush cut but
look for a small swollen area
(called a collar) where one
branch meets another, and cut
on the diagonal just above the
swollen spot.
The swollen area contains
hormones that will provide
good stuff to the tree as it con-
tinues to grow. Also, do not
cover the cut with anything,
but let it heal on its own.
Third in the list of things
to do in January is to plant
trees ard/or shrubs, and also
to transplant them. It is a good
idea to dig the new hole twice
as wide as the old one, but no
deeper.
And do not put into the
new hole anything such as
cow manure, fertilizer, top soil,
etc. Rather, use the same dirt
.that came out of the hole to
refill it.
Researchers have found that
if enriching additives are put
in the hole, tree roots will tend
to remain in the area of the
hole, making it a very weak
support system.
January is also the month to
plant pansies, petunias,
alyssum, snapdragons, cab-
bage, kale and bulbs. If your
tulip and narcissus bulbs have
been in refrigeration for 45 to
60 days, you can plant them
anytime from now on and
expect them to bloom within
4 to 6 weeks. The large bulbs
of the crinum and spider lilies
can be planted now, as well as
amaryllis bulbs.
If spring vegetable gardening
is your thing, be sure you are
working your garden plot with
leaves and any other kind of
organic matter you can lay
your hands on. The planting
of early spring seeds such as
radishes and carrots can be as
early as the end of February.
Just turning the soil once a

Silverman's irreverent references annoy


( arah Silverman: Jesus
Is Magic" is like a
.. warning bell for the'
death of American comedy.
Supposedly, Silverman has a
cult following as a standup
Scomedienne, so it's ironic that
even her own concert film
doesn't present her case very
"well.
M ost filmed comedy con-
certs take great pains to show
S.tH& e Yit e ~ialiec.mconvulsed
i htaigier W'om tart to
Finish. But Silverman ineptly
allows even her biggest laughs
to die down before she does
the next joke. (At movie's
end, there's a jawv-dropping
shot of an unconvinced audi-
ence member clapping very
slowly with only his knuck-
les.)
And little wonder..
Silverman on stage is basically
a brunette doing dumb-
blonde-type observations,
most of them riddled with
obscenities and references to
tragic events such as 9/11.


REVIEWER
S But unlike, say, Richard
Pryor, who exploded people's
fears about such matters by
confronting them, Silverman
thinks she's a hoot just
because she mentions them as
jokes. (One example:
Silverman says that, to moti-
vate her young niece in
school sports, she tells the-
niece that every time she
loses a contest, an angel dies
of AIDS. Are you laughing
yet?).


Sarah Silverman:

Jesus is Magic
Rated PG !

see B-8 for showtimes

And for all of her efforts as
an equal-opportunity offend-
"a ,'he seems to have it iii '
most for African-Amerifans.
The movie has endless, sup-
posedly satirical observations
about blacks that would make
Archie Bunker look like a
staunch left-winger. By the
time she makes defamatory
remarks about Martin Luther
King, you want. to sneer at
her, "Hey, lady, King is in the
history books. What have you
done lately?"
Then there are the movie's
sketches, which are even-
more painful than the concert
segments. Silverman will say.
something that, Woody Allen-


style, leads to a "thought"
(sketch) in her mind. But the
sketches don't enlighten the
standup material, and they're
not funny on their own. (In
one sketch, Silverman chastis-
es her manager for not pro-
viding her preferred brand of
bottled water backstage, and
;the manager goes from anger
towards Silverman to making
scatological suggestions as to
Show he can wih favor with
Sheer again.)
The most amazing aspects
that the entire movie, includ-
Sing credits, lasts only 72 min-
utes. When a standup comic
uses sketches to pad a movie
out over an hour and still
can't make any of it funny,
maybe it's time to go back on
Sthe road and rethink the
material.
"Sarah Silverman:'Jesus Is
Magic" is unrated but would
earn at.least an R for adult
'language, sexual references,
and slurs to any number of
minorities.

A New Body For The New Year!
November 30, 2005

Kathy
10/20/05


Dear Wes,
It was a great day for me when you came and gave a presentation on the benefits of
fitness at the Palm Valley Senior Center. I had always thought about the benefits of
having a trainer, and looking great like'all the movie stars, but never knew I could
actually do it until now.
Throughout my life, I have tried on my own to exercise and eat correctly. I have
joined some great gyms, but always quit after a short while. I just couldn't hold
myself accountable. I even tried several group classes, started strong, but then
fizzled to not going at all. I guess I lack the motivation to stick with a program on
my own.
Last year, I started noticing how my body was changing with age. I had become
overweight and weak, to put it bluntly. After your presentation at the Senior Center,
I knew I had to take action, and I'm so glad I did. The first week of training you
evaluated me and compared my results to my age group. I was ranked 'poor' in most
areas with a few 'average' ratings. After seven weeks we retested and I was amazed. I
was ranked 'above average' to 'excellent' in most areas. I had lost weight, lost inches,
gained flexibility and balance, and actually gained muscle!
I would never do on my own what my Fitness Together trainer, Jim, gets me to do
during my sessions. This is the best thing I could have ever done for myself. It is so
great to see the process of firming up, getting smaller and to being able to.lift with
ease things I couldn't budge before.
I know the benefits of exercise. I am more aware of the benefits more than ever as
I enter my 'Golden Years'. I want to stay active and healthy for a long time, and
Fitness Together is helping me do just that.

'Apostles' build for homeless


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Volunteers from 12 Beaches
churches will work together in
the upcoming months to
finance and construct a home
for a local family through the
Apostle Build Project.
A groundbreaking service
will be held Saturday in
Atlantic Beach.
"Apostle Build is an interna-
tional program of Habitat for
Humanity," said Chuck
Kennedy, volunteer coordina-
tor for Beaches Habitat.
The name of the project
comes from the 12 apostles
who were among the first of
Jesus' disciples
"Most of these churches
have been involved with
Beaches Habitat. Some of the
:churches are not large enough
to build a whole house them-
selves. This is a way they can
be part of a build."
For churches that have not
been involved with Habitat,
helping with the build is way
for them to determine if this
is a wise way to use their
funds and volunteer
efforts, Said .
Kennedy
The 12
"Apost tile
Build "
churches are

STen of the churches each has
made a commitment to raise
at least $3,000 toward the cost
of the house and provide 100
hours of volunteer labor. The
other two churches are making
either a financial contribution
or providing volunteer hours.
The project consists of a
duplex. The other half of the
duplex will be built by Women
Build, and each duplex will be
occupied by a single mother
with disabilities. The structure
will be a single story and
handicapped accessible.

ing buying this 'item, what would
you want to know about it? Give the
item's age, condition, size, brand
name and any other information
needed to describe it accurately and
