Wolfson: 'No rush

by JEFFREY MINTON
A group of Atlantic Beach
residents at Monday's City
expressed concern over the
direction they say that the new
commission is taking to restrict
private property rights.
The residents said that the
commission's ongoing process
of implementing more restric-
tive zoning laws to protect
community character and its
recent moratorium on dividing
lots serve as evidence of such.
"In my opinion, stopping
the evolution of Utlantic Beach
is super egotistical since it is
saying that the millions of
years of evolution should stop
now because the is the blip of
time that I walk the earth," res-
ident Peter Sapia said at the

Expert says Demeniuk 'out of touch with reality'
by LAURA FOWLER
A defense expert witness tes-
tified Thursday that Leslie
Demeniuk was "out of touch
with reality" when she killed
her twin 4-year-old sons
almost five years ago.
Dr. Earnest Miller, a forensic
psychologist and former pro-
fessor of psychiatry at the
University of Florida, said that
the 36-year-old Ponte Vedra
woman reached a point where
she no longer wished to live.
And she wanted her boys to
die with her.
"She breast fed these chil-
dren for two and a half years,"
Miller told the jury, adding
that most women breast feed
for no more than 12 months.
"I think it's an indication of.
. her inability to distinguish
her children from herself. She
and the boys were one, in her
Miller spent more than 50
hours interviewing and testing
Demeniuk, he said, adding
that he also interviewed family
.and witnesses and had her
brain scanned in an MRI.
Miller said Demeniuk
reached a low point where she
was "depressed, psychotic,
[and] out of touch with reali-
ty," due to a combination of
factors, which included a fami-
ly history of depression, recent
stresses such as her divorce and
the use of drugs and alcohol.
Miller said Demeniuk meant
to kill herself after she killed
the boys, but "passed out"
because she was heavily intox-
icated from prescription drugs
Miller said Demeniuk never
formed a strong bond with her
parents, wiho divorced when
she was a teen.
This, combined with a fami-
ly history of depression and
suicide attempts, contributed
to Demeniuk's state of mind
on the day of the shooting,
"She reached a point that the
world was so terrible and so
horrible that she did not think
she should live," Miller said.
He also said Demeniuk told
him she had recurring dreams
of "zombies," which he
thought was an indication of
Miller testified that
Demeniuk had, gaps in her
memory and she reported
occasions of paralysis.
Miller also testified that the
antidepressant drugs she was
taking, including Paxil and
Zoloft, were 'making her
depression and anxiety worse.
He said the drugs had a
"major influence on her break
Miller admitted that he was
"absolutely not" saying that
the drugs made her kill her
But he said the combination
of the drugs with her family
genetic history and stress put
her in a "delusional state of
mind" where she was capable
of killing her boys.
On the day of the shooting,
Demeniuk called the boys'
father, Tommy, to see if he
would baby-sit them, but he
In her interviews with Miller,
Demeniuk told him she proba-
bly was going to ask Ortiz to
take her to the hospital if
Tommy had taken the boys,
Miller told the jury.
"I think she reached a point
where everything failed,"

well, and there was no way

Railey said when he turned,
onto Willow Cove Court West
in the Cypress Cove subdivi-

that "the street was roped off"

He said his first thought was
that maybe his mother coild-

Chuck, 34, had left their moth-
er's house 45 minutes before
"The funeral director said
/she sustained 12 gunshot

According to Scott Railey, his
mother was shot by a .45 cal-

bullets. Railey said police told'

of food and weapons in his

Seat 4 vacancy
best served by
It is refreshing to see So many applicants seeking to fill
a mid-term vacancy onh the Neptune Beach City Council.
Eleven individuals have applied to fill the Seat Four
vacancy created by a councilor resigning last month.
It is worth wondering, though, where were all of these
:interested parties during the last election?
Each of the applicants will be given a list of six ques-
tibns compiled by the council. The applicants will also be
given a brief opportunity to address the council before a
finaldecision is made.
With 11 applicants, the decision is bound to be diffi-
cult. Several of the applicants already have a record of
service to the community.
Personal friendships and political allegiance should
not decide the matter, though. The overriding issue is
simple which applicant will best represent the citizens
of Neptune Beach.
Neptune Beach would be well served by a speedy deci-
sion:based on forthright, public discussion of each appli-
cant's merit. To do otherwise may avoid some hurt feel-
ings, but provide no assurances that the right representa-
* tive will be chosen. :

Can your editor and car-

they were both busy on Sept.

what happened. Or, maybe
they haven't seen what has
happened around the world in
Spain, England, U.S.S. Cole,
Russian school children,

and on and on.
Also, the wording shows an
incredible bias as well as com-
plete misunderstanding of
what has been happening. But,
of course, if is very good a

Then I ventured into the

and not well kept. Because of
the tree roots, dirt filled bar-

of the biggest draws for me at
a' place like Disney is its three-

'Lucky' fishermen are usually best prepared
For the longest time, the
definition of a successful
fisherman has always been
when skill, preparation and
opportunity come together.
There is a lot of truth to that,'
but these three factors aren't
necessarily all that's involved. I
like to think that luck is also a
factor. I believe that these four
factors actually define what a
successful fisherman is.
The luck factor is just that -
pure luck. Why did a certain
fish hit a certain bait at the
right time for one angler when
there might have been dozens
of other baits present that
could just as easily have been
hit? Was it-luck? 1 prefer to
think it was more skill and
preparation than luck.
Skill in fishing comes with
time and effort. The more
times you go fishing, hopeful-
ly, the more skill you can
develop. Some of our better
fishermen in the area have
been fishing since they were
big enough to hold a fishing
They might have started out
catching croakers at Brown's
Creek4 but now sailfish and
wahoo are more apt to occupy
their time. These fishermen
have hones their skills more
and more with every trip they
have made. Fishing is constant-
ly evolving and they are con-
stantly improving their skills.
So far, we've covered the luck
factor which you either have or
you don't, and the skill factor
which more times than not can
be developed. Preparation is
the one factor that can be
worked on immediately.
Being an offshore fisherman
presents more opportunities to
be prepared for than being a
surf fisherman. Fo example,
surf fishing is relatively simple..
Bring a suitable rod and reel,
the correct terminal tackle, and
bait, and you can catch just
about anything that swims in
Offshore, there are so many
different species that strike so
many different baits that have
to be prepared so many differ-
ent ways that one might have
to carry half a tackle store on a
trip just to be prepared. -
SHopefully not, but I always
do try to have several plans of
attack ready when I go off-
shore. I call them Plan A; B, C
and of course, when desperate,
Plan D. Plan A might be to
secure live bait and simply troll
it. Plan B might be to carry
some frozen bait just in case no
live bait can be found. Plan C
could be using artificial lures as
bait and Plan D, for despera-
tion, could even be to scrap the
trip and go surf fishing.
The point is to be prepared,
so here are a few tips to help all
of us out iri that department.
First, always match your rods
and reels to the species of fish
you're going after. Surf fishing
for whiting with a Penn
International 30 just won't cut
it. Twenty-pound and 50-
pound outfits will do fine.
Trolling live baits offshore
calls for 20-pound outfits with
medium-light rods. Wahoo and
dolphin fishing is where that
International 30 would come
in with 30 to 50-pound line
and medium-heavy rods.
Making leaders might sound
easy and to an extent it is. but
making a perfect leader is
sometimes hard. Length, hook
size, swivel size and leader size
Scan all be determining factors
when your success or lack there
of is measured at the end of the
;I know lots of king fishermen
who use double treble hook
rigs and who carry at least 100
rigs with them when they go
offshore. Are they planning onh
using that many rigs in one
day? No, but they are prepared
with the proper rig size for any
size bait they happen to catch.
Having that many rigs
means that somehow you need
a system to keep them all
straight. I use Zip Lock bags for
that. They're inexpensive and
do a great job for me. Put indi-
vidual rigs in the bags, using a
Sharpie mark the bags as to the
type of rig that it is, group the
bags together with a rubber
band, then store the bags in a
Tupperware type of container.
I've even got different contain-
ers for bottom fishing and off-
One other thing about rigs: If
you find one that works well,
duplicate it exactly. Be very
meticulous about it. Don't just
thrown some rigs together just'
to have some. Do it right.
Good luck and good fishing!

I recommend that you fol-
low these steps, especially if
you are new to the area and
have not been through a win-
ter before. Once you have beer
through a few, you'll know
what in your yard you'll have
to give special protection to.
The key to.all the rules is to
create less stress to our plant

plant can deal with nature's
stresses far better than a weak
one. And if you plant things

1. Always water your lawn
and shrubs 24 to 48 hours
ahead of the freeze.
Do not water during the
freeze ( only commercial grow
ers can get away with this);
you do not want to wake up
and find icicles dangling from
your shrubs. If you water
ahead of the freeze, the plant;
material will be at its best to
endure the freeze with roots
fully filled with water. Less
stress equals better survival..
2. Never mow or prune just
before a predicted freeze. The
reasoning is that a cut leaves
an open wound allowing for
quick dieback to that area.
Wait another week, or even
,few days, and do this job whe:
the freeze has gone elsewhere
3. Never lay sod right before
a freeze. It always takes sod a
few weeks at the best to get it

8. Cover any newly-planted
annual with sheets, blankets,

the plant does not cook under-

foam pieces and wrap it
around the grafted portion of
the trunk. This area is about 8
inches up from the ground
and is easily seen as a place
where.two pieces of wood have
been 'glued" together, looking
somewhat like a scar.
If you do not ivant to use
foam, then banking the graft
with sand, dirt or even mulch
is fine. Just remember to
remove it come springtime.
The reason for this is that
citrus is one of those plants
that really comes as two pieces
fit together. The part that is in
the ground is from what we
call a rootstock that is capable
of withstanding ground'
freezes, while the top, green,
fruiting part is from another
stock that gives you the type of

make sense for you to do what
you do to protect your plants.

Kings: In Iceland Jan. 18
Cont. from B-1
A self-taught musician,
Alcorn said his former band-
mates demanded that he
learn to read sheet music to
play the stand-up bass, a skill
he quickly conquered.
"They gave me all these
books and I just kind of got
obsessed with it. I just tried to
figure out as much as I
could," he said.
"I basically downloaded
some guitar chord charts off
the Internet and started try-
ing to figure some songs out."
"He told me that in teach-
ing guitar for 12 years, he's
never seen anybody pick it up
that fast," Alcorn said. "I
could play about five or six.
songs in two weeks and sing."
Thinking three steps ahead,
Alcorn started working
toward filling the positions of
drummer and upright bassist
for a band that was not even
a band -yet.
He looked no farther than

. "It started as kind of a joke.
We were watching "King of

what we should call the
band," Alcorn said.
"The name kind of turns:

we play speed metal but we'
are a traditional rockabilly

The diversity of their music
is also compatible with harder
punk and rock 'n roll bands.
Despite all the accolades,
Alcorn said the Kings are
humbled by the response and
eager to take things slow.
Rather than signing with a
label, they will instead hone
their skills and develop a set
list of covers including The
Blasters, a California-based
rockabi lly, band, and
Nashville band the Planet
Rockers to engage audiences
and keep them interested
until they are ready to move
on to original material.
"It's been over a year and
we have nine original songs
and probably two hours
worth of material," Alcorn

Upon returning from
Iceland, the band would like
to continue building its fol-

would love to return to the

Alcorn is hopeful that the
local scene will wafm up to
the Kings of Hell after a brief
resurgence years ago col-
lapsed beneath the weight of
the swing craze.
"Swing killed the rockabilly
scene that was going on six
years ago," he said.
"This band has snowballed
into so much more than we
ever thought it would be. I
don't know where this is
going but it would nice not
to have to work anymore."
