AB gives

first OK

to stop

large lot

divisions

May impact Selva Marina

by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF It'RITER
The Atlantic Beach City
Commission Monday tenta-
tively approved the creation of
a new zoning district with larg-
er minimum lot sizes which, if
applied to areas such as Selva
Marina as is intended, would
"effectively" prohibit lot divi-
sions.
The commission on first
reading unanimously approved
the new district which stipu-
lates 10,000 square foot mini-
mum lot sizes. Final considera-
tion of the new zoning district
is scheduled Feb. 27.
If approved, the meas-
ure would not rezone any por-
tion of the city. That would
require separate action.
But the new district could be
applied to areas of the city with
larger lot sizes such as Selva
Marina to make it harder for
property owners to subdivide
their lots.
Some city commissioners
want to prevent larger lots in
such areas from being subdi-
vided because they feel it is
detrimental to their ongoing
attempts to preserve the city's
community character. The City
Commission in December
placed a moratorium on all
property subdivision until zon-
ing laws could be changed.
The city's largest residential
zoning district RS-1 requires
a minimum 7,500 square foot
lot. Areas in the city zoned RS-
1 are Oceanwalk, Selva Norte,
Royal Palms and Selva Marina.
But certain lots in Selva Marina
are substantially larger than
7,500 square feet and thus can
be divided into more lots and
still meet the minimum lot
size, per the current code.
The proposed new district, if
approved and applied to areas
such as Selva Marina, would
essentially eliminate lot divi-
sions in the neighborhood as
there are likely no lots large
enough to be divided and still
meet the 10,000 square foot
minimum, according to city
staff.

The revised budget for a
"vital" road improvement proj-
ect will be considered at 5 p.m.
by the lacksonville Beach
Community Redevelopment
Agency.
The CRA last December
approved a $494,403 construc-
tion budget to complete inter-
section improvements at South
Beach and Marsh Landing
parkways.
A revised estimate was
received by city planners short-
ly after the agency's December
meeting but that amount came
in far below the lowest bid sub-
mitted by Miranda
Contracting, Inc.
The firm submitted a bid of
$767,953 plus a 10 percent
contingency for a total budget
revision of $844,748 -
$273,550 over the amount
originally budgeted by the
CRA.
"The Marsh Landing/South
Beach Parkway is a vital proj-
ect," Planning and
Development Director Steve
Lindorff said in a Feb. 14
memo to agency members.
"Without the proposed project,
.. the intersection is likely to

Amendments to a 2003
county ordinance that
banned parking on Ponte
Vedra Boulevard were post-
poned Monday, pending the
result of St. Johns County's
lawsuit with Surfrider
Foundation over beach access.
In addition to ruling on the
arguments presented in the
lawsuit at a non-jury trial in
November, Circuit Judge
Michael Traynor has been
asked to reconsider a claim he
earlier threw out in the law-
suit.
James Woodruff, a lawyer
for Surfrider, has asked
Travnor to reconsider'
Surfrider's claim that the
parking is "constitutionally
vague," noting that Laura
Barrow, an assistant county

The City Council first broached the,
issue in a workshop last October but
officials opted for more time to mull,
over the proposed changes.''
. Councilors were divided over a pro-
posed sliding scale developed to calcu-
late lot coverage requirements and'
tabled the issue. Since then staff has not
made any recommendations.
Officials, however, agreed to consider
allowing several species of problem
trees to be exempt from the protected


attorney, recently said the law
is "clearly unconstitutional."
That claim was one of eight
of 11 counts in the lawsuit
thrown out by Traynor in
2004.
Lawyers for Surfrider said
their decision to reintroduce
the issue of the ordinance
came after a lan. 9 meeting, in
which Barrow said the ordi-
nance would not stand a chal-
lenge on, constitutional
grounds.
The ordinance bans park-
ing, but exceptions can be
granted, although the excep-
tions are not specified in the
law.
"This is not a good way to
do business," Deborah
Andrews, a lawyer for
Surfrider, said Tuesday.

Under the proposal, a resident would
still be required to obtain a permit for
tree removal even if the tree is among
those that are not protected.
The current ordinance only allows
the removal of pine trees and palm
trees. However, palms planted as part of
the required trees in a landscape plan
are protected.

A project to landscape portions of Jarboe Park and the medians along Third Street in
Neptune Beach recently began. The $250,000 project is being completely funded using
money that former Jacksonville Mayor John Delaney designated to Neptune Beach before
he left office. Work planting various trees and bushes in Jarboe Park began last week and
will continue north along Third Street (AlA). Existing trees along the medians will be
removed and replanted in Jarboe Park and along portions of Florida Boulevard. Work is
expected to be completed within six weeks, according to city officials.

The Neptune Mall in Town Center is under con-
tract to be purchased by a prominent property
owner in the commercial district, according to a
family member of the mall's owner.
The office complex at 241 Atlantic Boulevard
has been owned by Louis MacDonald for many
years. But a representative of the MacDonald fam-
ily said Thursday that the Lovett family has a con-
tract to purchase the property.
Lovett is the owner of SouthCoast Capital
which owns much of the property in Town Center
- the shared Central Business District of neighbor-
ing Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach.
"They've [the Lovett family] always wanted this
property," said Marcy MacDonald, the daughter of
Louis MacDonald, who said that Lovett expressed
interest in purchasing the property for many


years. "I'm not sure what they are planning
but they've wanted this property for a long
"They possibly will want to go up [in the
of the building]."

Neptune Beach city officials said Thursd,

The tree code basically prohibit the
tearing down of all types of trees right
now except for palm trees and pine
trees except under certain restricted cir-
cumstances.
A permit fee would be used to cover
the cost of a trained code inspector to
identify the type of tree and establish
whether or not to remove it.

Trees:


Cont. from A-i
lReports from the
Department of Environmental
Protections Bureau of Invasive
Plant Management and the
University of Florida were used
to draft a list of 26 other prob-
lem trees.
Most of them are tropical or
subtropical, city officials said,
such as the Carolina lau-
relcherry which has the, lowest
wind resistance for this area, is
extremely brittle and is distin-
guished by little black berries
that fall.
The commission .will also
discuss staffing a certified traf-
fic engineer to conduct in-
house impact studies for future
developments.
Council members last
October agreed that an engi-
Sneer working exclusively for
the city would provide consis-
tency to the studies required by
the planning department. ;
The developer would reim-
burse the city the cost of the
study prior to the project mov-
ing forward.
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff said the
city requires two levels of stud-
ies depending on the size of
the proposed development.
If a development has a densi-
ty of below 100 units, it is not
defined as a, major project and
only requires a hand calcula-
tion of the number of 'peak
hour trips in comparison to the
capacity.
A .major development 'is
required to provide a full traffic
impact analysis. Lindorff said
traffic engineers can use sever-
al different models to look at,
every aspect of the project


Road:

An initial study showed that
the intersection was operating
at a nearly failing level in some
directions and turning move-
ments and the additional tnps
from the Valencia
Condominiums and the Target
expansion will worsen condi-
tions if the problems are not
solved, Lindorff said.
At a July planning meeting
for the project, Senior Project
Manager Paul Vetter with the
engineering firm Edwards and
Kelcey said he anticipates traf-I
fic conditions will i'rprove-.
, ith the construction of an
additional left turn lane at
Marsh Landing Parkway where
traffic frequently backs up.
"The two lane left will have a
protected traffic signal phase
that will stop oncoming traffic
at the green light," Vetter said.
"With the two-phase now,
vehicles in the left turn lane
have to wait for traffic [before
they can turn]."
A new signal will be added at
South Beach Parkway and
Sanctuary Parkway, which will
be converted westbound into a
one-way passage.
"There is a lot of traffic com-'
ing into that intersection and
in order to do that and have
enough green time, we need to

including data about specific
intersections.
All engineers, however, con-
sult the same manual to gener-
ate the various types of models.
There is some standardiza-
tion in there. They key with
this is this person would be an
extension of city staff, Lindorff
said.
An engineer under contract
with the city would not be per-
mitted to consult for any out-
side projects that might create
a conflict of interest.
Lindorff said the planning
process would also be modified
to inform developers that they
are not required to fund their
own traffic studies and develop
a rate schedule.
If approved, Forbes said the
engineer would be retained for
a period of three to five years.
Other changes include a ten-
tative plan that would limit
businesses to monument signs
since Jacksohville Beach seems
to be the last city that still per-
mits the uise of pole signs,
Mayor Fland Sharp said.
A companion severability,
clause will also be added to
protect the city's 'sign code
from legal action if a portion of
its text is. ever challenged in
court.
Lindorff said some billboard
companies will attack local
codes for something totally
unrelated to billboards and in
the process they manage to get
the entire code thrown out, he
said, citing similar cases in
Clearwater and Georgia.
When the code is thrown
out, then the billboard compa-
nies come in and demand per-
mits, Lindorff said.






Vetter said. "The eastbound
traffic is very low, less than 10
cars per hour."
Eastbound traffic will be able
to use Jacksonville Drive to
head north or south on South
Beach Parkway, Vetter said. ;
The existing crosswalk on
South Beach Parkway at
Sanctuary Parkway will be
eliminated but new ones will
be added across all four direc-
tions at the Marsh Landing and
South Beach Parkway intersec-
tions.
"Now tlhgy are only at the

AB officials put off raise discussion


by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
Atlantic Beach city commis-
sioners for a brief time Monday
night did away with automatic
annual salary adjustments for
themselves.
But moments after the 3-2
'vote to do so, one of the com-.
missioners on the prevailing
side of the vote changed his
mind and asked the City
Commission to reconsider the
action. Commissioner Jamie
Fletcher said he wanted to table
the issue for two more weeks to
allow more time to study the
ordinance change.
Fletcher's proposal to recon-
sider and table the action passed
in separate 3-2 votes, and so the.
commissioners plan to revisit
the issue of how their annual-
salaries are adjusted at their Feb.
27 meeting.
Currently, the mayor and'
commissioners' pay is automati-
cally adjusted every October
based on the average salary
reflected in the Florida League
of Cities Cooperative Salary


Survey for cities with popula-
tions between 10,000 and
49,0000. A previous commis-
.sion approved a change to the
automatic pay adjustment sys-
tem in 2002 to avoid the politi-
cally uncomfortable task of giv-
ing themselves pay raises each
year.
But since that time city staff
says that fewer cities are
responding to the league's sur-
vey each year and it may no
longer be a valid way tobase the
commissioners' salary.
A change has' been proposed
to base the commissioner's
annual automatic pay adjust-
ment, according to the-
Consumer Price Index. for ,All
Urban Communities which is,
released every August.
SThat change was tentatively'
approved by the commission
Jan. 23 and was placed on the
commission's agenda for final
approval Monday.
But at Monday's meeting
Mayor Don Wolfson said that as
a citizen he "had a concern" in
2002 when the commission

STAFF FI'RITER
Funds set aside last year to
construct a new parks and
recreation building in south
Jacksonville Beach will be
revisited Monday by the
Community Redevelopment
SAgency. .
The agency last September
earmarked over $5 million to
cover the :cost' of future
improvements, including the
hew $550,000 recreation
building at the city's south
end.
City officials recently select-
ed C. youngg Construction and
Ebert-Norman-Brady
Architects to complete the
project on South Beach
Parkway near the South Beach
Park and new fire station.
.,The firms submitted: a


$12,100 cost estimate to pro-
vide preliminary design phase
services which will include
working with city's Parks and
Recreation Department to'
design the new facility.
The new facility will feature
office and storage space, a
conference room, a reception
area, lobby and restrooms. ,
It will also be designed to
withstand harsh storm coddi-
tions and will be wired to
function as a government
facility if City Hall is rendered
inoperable "during a hurri-,

ment's present administrative

approved the automatic. pay
adjustments.
"To have an automatic pay
raise was problematic," Wolfson
said. "Theoretically I am-
opposed to automatic pay raises
Wolfson moved to amend the
proposed ordinance, deleting
the section pertaining to auto-
matic pay adjustments. The
amendment passed 3-2 with
commissioners Sylvia Simmons
and Mike Borno voting no.
Then confusion broke out
amongst commissioners -
some of who said they were
unsure of whether the ordi-
nance was even needed arid
how the commission member's
salaries were to be adjusted in
the future.
The confusion resulted in the
ordinance being approved,
reconsidered and ultimately
tabled for further discussion
Feb. 27.
Currently, the mayor is paid
$10,772 annually and commis-
sioners are paid $6,556 annual-
ly.

it [the parking ban] needs to be
fixed. Are they just being stub-
born and just don't want to
agree?"
According to the motion, the
request to reconsider the park-
ing ban is partly based on "mis-
information" that only the
County Commission was
enforcing the ban.
Surfrider claims that the task
of enforcing the ban was dele-
gated to County Administrator
Ben Adams, who used his own
discretion to grant exceptions.
The motion calls on evidence
submitted during the November
trial, which shows that Adams
granted exceptions to guests of
residents along the boulevard,
but denied parking to a Surfrider
member.
"Furthermore, the county has
not been forthcoming in its
argument since it has recently
taken action. to revise this sec-
tion of the code and has been
quoted in the press as admitting
that it is unconstitutional," the
motion says.
Before the two-day trial in
November, St. Johns County
commissioners were asked to
reaffirm the parking ban, which
allows exceptions for service.
vehicles and visitors to Ponte
Vedra Boulevard residents.
At that time, commissioners
Bruce Maguire, Cyndi
Stephenson, Jim Bryant and
Karen Stem voted to reaffirm
the ban, with Ben Rich casting
the "no" vote.
Rich claimed the law was "dis-
criminatory" and should ban
parking for everyone, not just
beachgoers.
"I don't believe that. you can
have restrictive laws based on
safety that discriminate who can
be safe and who can be unsafe,"
Rich said in a November inter-
view.
"Safety laws are put into effect
to basically apply to people
across the board."
Much of the rationale for the
parking ban had to do with safe-
ty along Ponte Vedra Boulevard.
.After the trial, lawyers from
both sides submitted proposed
orders closing out, their; cases in
January. The latest motion was
filed Feb. 1.

Jacksonville mayor


is welcome visitor

Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton will make several
appearances at the Beaches over the next couple of weeks.
He is scheduled to address the Beaches Business
Association (BBA) at noon on Monday, Feb. 27, at the
Jacksonville Beach Public Golf Course Club House, located
at the end of South Penman Road.
Peyton was scheduled last night to address the Maypoit
Navy League Council Meeting at the Mayport Naval.
Station.
A Town Hall meeting is planned on March 2. The meet-
ing is open to all and the mayor will field, questions from
the audience.
Cynics might attribute the mayor's numerous appear-.
ances as preparation for an upcoming re-election bid.
We, however, would simply like to welcome Peyton and
encourage the county's top administrator to be a frequent
I visitor to the Beaches.

Letters to the editor: Don weeds speed pets
Don'tneedmore weeds onspeed
Grey's Anatomy .fiction -W' 1 -rl .. n..


To the editor:
The producers of entertairn-
ment shows such as "Grey's
Anatomy" (that aired on
Sunday, February 5, 2006),
ought to be more responsible
and cognizant' of the influence
that their fictional stories may
have on the public. As a physi-
cian and anesthesiologist, I was
deeply disturbed by the depic-
tion of the anesthesiologist
who, during a "code black" situ-
ation (bomb threat) in the hos-
pital, deserted his patient and
left a young paramedic alone in
the O.R. to care for his patient.
I sincerely hope that viewers
of this show understand that
the actions of this fictional char-
acter were scripted for dramatic
effect, and not intended to rep-
resent the profession of anesthe-
siology in a realistic sense. An
anesthesiologist is probably the
least likely physician to fall
apart or "bail out" in a crisis sit-
uation. In fact, of all medical
specialists, anesthesiologists are
among the physicians with the
'most rigorous training in
responding -tocritical emergen-
(cies it is what we do on a daily
basis.
Our training prepares us to
act decisively in critical care and
emergency situations. On a
more routine basis, we are asked
to (and accept) putting our-
selves at risk in the course of our
daily responsibilities, by staying
with patients during X-rays
(when everyone else leaves the
room), or by being first line
responders to yet unknown dis-
eases when emergency intuba-
tion and critical care of patients
rare required.
I. also would like to point out
that there is much more to the
job of the anesthesiologist than
was portrayed in this fictional
TV episode. Being an anesthesi-
ologist is not just about "breath-
ing for the patient" and "keep-
ing him under."


Anesthesiologists monitor, sus-
tain and manipulate all of the
life functions of our patients
during all events in the operat-
ing room. In fact, I should point
out that ALL of the miracles of
surgery that we may now take
for granted, such as coronary
bypass, neurosurgery, cancer
surgery, transplant surgery and
limb-saving surgery (to name
just a few) have been made pos-
sible only because of advances
in the specialty of anesthesiolo-
gy. Can one imagine having
heart bypass surgery, organ
transplantation, or a cesarean
section without anesthesia?
The Grey's Anatomy episode
also suggested that getting an
epidural for pain relief during
labor will increase the chance of
the mother having a cesarean
section. Actually, the latest med-
ical literature shows there not to
be a cause-and-effect relation-
ship between epidurals and
cesarean sections. In real life,
anesthesiologists represent
patient safety. Vigilance is the
cornerstone of our profession,
. perhaps.more .than-in-any-other-
medical specialty.!
Anesthesiology was among the,
first medical specialties to estab-
lish a foundation (Anesthesia
Patient Safety Foundation, at
ww w A P S F or g
) dedi-
cated solely to patient safety -
over twenty years ago! Our mis-
sion is "To ensure that no
patient is harmed by anesthe-
sia."
Although not very visible out-
side of the O.R. (by the very
nature of what we do), we are
compassionate, dedicated and
skilled physicians who make
possible 100,000 quiet victories
over disease each day through
the modem miracle of anesthe-
sia.

the cussed growths continue '

of food indirectly. Per the

Choosing Davis Park as high

school site today wall cost us


To the editor:
Much debate and confusion has surrounded
the selection of a high school site for the Ponte
Vedra Beach / Palm Valley community. Residents
have expressed concern over the cost to taxpayers
and the impact on the environment. So, what is
the real story?
Is there really a FREE site? Yes, but only one;
the 50-acre exchange proposal at Mickler Road'
will not only provide our community with the
most desirable site east of the Intracoastal, it will
also come at no cost to the taxpayers. Ponte
Vedra / Palm Valley's best chance of landing a
high school east of the Intracoastal now lies in"
Herb Pevton's 50-acre "fee simple" title exchange
offer with the state. Mr. Peyton is offering the
state 50 acres of pristine maritime hammock (oak
trees), wetlands and lake shore for perpetual, pub-
lic protection. That is to say he is willing to deed.
the land to the state. In exchange, the state will
make 50 pine plantation acres available to build
our high school behind the new Publix shopping
center, adjacent to Mickler Road. By supporting
the Mickler Road site now, the Davis Park site,
provided at no. cost to the county as a condition
of the development's approval, will still be avail-
able years from now. If we choose to build on the
Davis Park site now; it will' end up costing the tax-
payers tomorrow. When growth in Nocatee
demands an additional high school, the county
will then be required to purchase land for anoth-
er school site.
Who arte winners if Davis Park Site is select-
ed? Nocatee! If the Davis Park site is selected,
Nocatee would have two high schools to bookend
its development, the existing Nease High School
and the proposed Davis Park site, which will only
help their marketing efforts. In future years, these
two high schools will have reached capacity and
a new high school will be required. Nocatee resi-
dents will then have three high schools in their
community, west of the Intracoastal. Make no

Beaches are uniquely

charming due to mix


To the editor:
The "Beaches" area' has lots
of charm. The variety of peo-
ple, incomes, shops, places to
eat and live and the waterways
is what makes it what it is and
leads to attract people to live
or visit here.
Please work to keep it a com-
munity for all with various
income levels as this is what
makes it such an interesting,
pleasant place to be.


I'm in favor of progress but
think there should be careful
planning so as not to lose the
availability of the beaches by
building hotels and condos all
along the beach and waterways
that only the fortunate higher
levels of income can enjoy. I
believe this could destroy what
the Beaches now has in its
favor.

only keep one, and one little
old red rat wouldn't even fill
up Cyrus, Billy Ray's pit bull.
Plus the flounder had long
since left the area.
Sheepshead is the only
thing biting inshore. Why
"don't we have, a sheepshead
tournament? asked Billy Ray.
Tournament? Just the idea
of doing something competi-
tive riles T. Otis up. After all,
he and Billy Ray were tourna-
ment veterans having fished
on the Saltwater Professional
Inland Trout Trail, SPITT for
short. SPITT anglers, as it,
turns' out, are some of the
tougher trout fishermen out
there.. Rain, wind. or cold
doesn't slow them down. But
a closed season, well, that had
done the trick. That plus run-
ning out of chewing tobacco.
Yeah! And it won't be ,as
expensive to fish f6r them as
it is for trout, T. Otis added. It
will be cheap.
I only wish, the El. Cheapo
Sheepshead Tournament had
such a colorful start but it just
ain't so. The real truth of the
matter.is that Frank Joura, a
member of the Jacksonville
Offshore Sport Fishing Club,
along, with several other
members came up with the
concept as a club fundraiser.
The JOSFC has been around
since the late 1950s with one
goal in mind: Improve and
promote offshore sport fish-
ing in our area. The group has
been quite successful at it,
too.
The El Cheapo as the tour-.
nament is referred to, pits the
number one bait stealer the
sheepshead -' against some
of our area's best fishermen,
or in my case, maybe not


CAPTAIN

COLUMNIST
because catching sheepshead
is definitely not my forte.
If Billy Ray and T. Otis had
come up with the concept, it
probably would have been
named the Redneck Masters.
No matter, the El Cheapo. is
now in its sixth year and ,with'
longevity comes improve-
ment.
Last year's first place prize
was $600 cash. This year it's a
boat! O.K., it's not a big boat,
but a 14-foot Bass Tracker
with a 9.9 hp Mercury four-
stroke motor and trailer is a
great prize for catching a big
Ssheepshead. Last year it took
ani 11-pounder to win first
place. Cash is paid out to 10th
place with three mystery fish
drawings.
Now for the particulars. The
captain's 'meeting will be
Friday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. at
the' Mayport Public Boat
Ramp in the JOSFC club-.
house. Fishing is the next'day
beginning at 7 a.m. Sunday if
the weather day. Around 2
p.m. Saturday the weigh-in
gets going and so will a great
fish fry. At $5 per plate, it's a
deal' and you don't have to be
in the tournament to eat fish.
During the awards, the
JOSFC will conduct a raffle.
As Frank put it, "We'll be giv-
ing away between $7,000 and
$8,000 worth of raffle prizes."
' Again, you don't have to
fish to buy raffle tickets .and
have a shot at some really
great prizes.
If you do want to fish, the
entry fee is a whopping $60
per boat and a Calcutta is also
available for all you hardcore
competitors like T. Otis. Last
year's tournament fielded 90
boats and this year Frank
expects well over 100. There
are even rumors of kayaks
participating this year.
Hmmm, I guess they might
just want to upgrade to a big-
ger boat by winning the tour-
nament. See ya there.

RUNNING/FITNESS


Shott shines

with Winter

Beach Run

race victory

S or the Jacksonville Track
Club, it was the 31st run-
ning of their oldest race.
For Jacksonville's Owen Shott,
it was his second victory in
two months.
The Winter Beach Run is
notorious for its awful condi-
tions. If it isn't wind, it's rain,
or cold, or hail. Sometimes it's
all four at once. Florida's win-
ters are famous for being pleas-
ant and temperate, but the
WBR has always been hell-
bent on ruining the reputa-
tion.
After an idyllic week, the
race's traditional stormy
weather rolled in on Saturday
less than 24 hours before the
start. But by race time at two
o'clock Sunday, the weather
was fine except for a stiff
northwesterly wind.
Shott, along with Paul
N cRae, Justin Jacobs and 43-
year-old Masters runner, John
Mletzger, were led out at a scin-
tillating pace by unknown
speedsters from out of town.
The speedster went out hard
and fast leaving the four locals
gasping. The \VBR is two races,
a five-mile and a 10-mile, that
begin at the same time and
place and it can be hard to tell'
who is in which, especially'if
you don't know them. '"-
By looking at his quickly
disappearing back, it was
impossible to determine the
truth: Was Mystery Speedster a'
five-mile or a ten-mile runner?
The first mile passed in 5:15,
the second in 5:20. After the
two and a half-mile turn-
around point, Jacobs and
Metzger fell off the pace leav-
ing Short and McRae gallantly
chasing.
The runners, who began by
running north into the wind .
along the beach from the
Comfort Inn in jax Beach,
were now moving south with
the wind at their backs. At five
miles, the mystery runner
pulled off the course into the
finish-line chute.
"We didn't know he was in
the five-mile race," Shott said
after it was over. "We had to
stay after him. We thought he
might be in the ten like us."
The Mystery Speedster won
the 5-mile race in 26 minutes
and three-seconds. He regis-
tered under the name of Peter
Vail i31) of Vail, Colorado.
Very' mysterious.
Short and McRae went
through five miles in 27:19
and were now out front and
all alone. Short knew the race
was his. He knew that McRae
had shown up late and didn't
legally enter the race; whatever
he ran would be invalid.
At 7.5 miles the course
turned north once more for
the final drive home, and the.
wind was more unyielding
than ever.
"Our pace fell from 5:20 per
mile to 5:40s," Shott said.
Shott gutted out the speed-
sapping beach sand and unre-
lenting torrent to take the
Jacksonville Grand Prix event
in 55:26, his second victory in
two months. He also lifted the
champion's trophy in Decem-
ber's cross-country race, The
Last Gasp.
Jphn Metzger came through
to finish second in 56:11 with
Justin Jacobs (22) hanging on
for third in 56:12. Frank
Sutman (46), of Orange Park,
won the Masters (over 40)
division in 63:25.
Shott had not rimun the
Winter Beach Run since Feb.
2000, when he was a 19 year-
old and won it in 55:41..
The women's race winner
J.C. Pinto, who until her mar-
riage a week ago was known as
J.C. Hanley, completed the
course in 65:56. Michelle
Krueger was second in 67:27
and Regina Taylor (41) won the


women's Masters race in 75:09.


Preckajlo's

ninth-inning

home runny

wins game

By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
Fletcher High mounted a
dramatic comeback in its base-
ball home opener against
Englewood Wednesday night,,
winning in storybook fashion
as Justin ,Preckajlo's ninth
inning home' run sailed into
the blackened sky over the
left-centerfield fence to give
the Senators an 1 1-8 victory.
It was a night for Fletcher
home runs. Deviri Gonzalez
belted a pair, Kevin Lehane
smacked another and
Preckajlo's blast capped the
festivities.
The Senators sprinted out to.
a 4-0 first inning lead keyed by
Gonzalez's two-run shot, his
first of the regular season.
But the Rams sustained the
initial blows and bounced
back with a pair of runs in the
second and third innings, then
added three more in the fourth
and another in the sixth to
take an 8-- lead. By then
Englewood had chased
Preckajlo as Fletcher's starter.
but reliever Brett Caudill came
on and pitched scoreless sev-
enth, eighth and ninth
innings.
"That's what' he does," said
Senators head. coach Kevin
Brown. "Caudill comes in and
quiets,bats."
Gonzalez, belted his second
homer of the night, this time a
solo shot over the right field
fence, in the fifth to bring the
Senators a bit closer at 8-5.
SWith momentum clearly

game against

While
Preckajlo last-
ed just four
innings on the
mound, he
more than
made up for it
with a walk-off
three-run
home run in
the ninth
inning to give
the Senators
an 11-8
victory.


Pnoios by ROB DeANGELO
Senators baserunner B.J. Chandler dives back to first on a pickotf attempt during Wednesday night's baseball home opener against.
Englewood. Fletcher won with a dramatic three-run home run in the ninth inning to improve to 2-0 on the season.


swinging back in the home
team's favor, Fletcher squan-
dered a great chance to break
things open in the bottom of
the sixth. After a base hit and a
pair of walks loaded the bases
with nobody out, Preckailo hit
,a line drive bullet to third that
was caught and Patrick
Braswell was doubled off first.
Lehane then bounced into a
fielder's choice to end the
threat.
It seemed like a devastating
blow at the time, but the
Senators rebounded in the bot-
tom of the seventh when B.I.


Chandler stroked a base hit
and Sam Perry was hit by a
pitch. With two on and
nobody out, Jordan Dowling
hit into a fielder's choice to
put runners on the corners
with one down. Chandler
scored on a wild pitch to make
it 8-6, then Tyler Bounds
struck out but made it safely to
first as the ball rolled to the
backstop.
Dowling then scored on a
passed ball to make it a one
run ballgame. Brian Coburn
delivered a solid base hit and
in a close play at home,


Bounds iwas called out as he
slid head-first into the plate.
An alert Coburn never stopped
running and made it to third
to put the tying run 90 feet
away with two outs.
Braswell, atoning for his ear-
lier baserunning error, belted
an RBI double to square things
at 8-all. Braswell then swiped
third on a passed ball and
Preckajlo walked. Englewood
elected to intentionally walk
Gonzalez loading the bases for
Lehane. A groundout to short-
stop meant extra innings and
the Senators saved their best


for last.
The Rams threatened to re-
take the lead in the top of the
eighth when a bunt single and
a groundout put a runner at
second with one out. Another
groundout advanced the run-
ner to third, but when he tried
to score on a passed ball,
Senators catcher Coburn made
a terrific scramble to retrieve
the ball and fired to Caudill
who blocked the plate and
made the tag to end the
inning.
After retiring in order in the
bottom of the eighth, Fletcher
delivered a victory with style
in the ninth. After Bounds
struck out, Coburn 'and'
Braswell walked, meaning
Englewood would have to
pitch to either the power-hit-.
ting Preckajlo, or the even'
more power-hitting Gonzalez.
The Rams opted for Preckajlo
and it looked like a good move
when after a foul ball and a
swing and a miss the hitter
found himself in a 2-2 count.
"In that situation I was just
looking for a fastball and I got
it," Preckajlo said.
The senior delivered in the
clutch, sending the ball way
over the fence for a three-run
shot and the victory.
"It's a marathon but I'm
happy we're off to a good
start," Brown said of his 2-0
team.. "Englewood is always
good and they showed it again
tonight.
"We made some errors, had
some bad baserunning, didn't
hit the cutoff man and things
like that. Things we'll contin-
ue to work on in practice. But
as I said this is a marathon so
I'd rather have a dramatic win
like we had tonight in May in
Sarasota, in the state finals.
"But in spite of the things
we did wrong, some guys came
through when they had to.
We've got some competitors
on this team and that's always
a good sign."


Women face significant risk of heart disease


t recently I wrote a short
-'. article regarding heart dis-
s ease in women. Earlier
this month was The American
Heart Association's "National
Wear Red Day," a campaign
whose goal is to support, and
inform women of their signifi-
cant risks of heart disease.
Heart disease is the number
one killer of women 'in this
country, but many still consider
heart disease to be a man's
problem. However, a.- recent
article in the Journal of the
American College of Cardiology
reports that women may actual-
ly be more at risk than. men for
certain types of heart disease.
Specifically, women have a
higher risk of "coronary
microvascular syndrome", a
.condition in which plaques
have accumulated in the tiniest
arteries of the heart, reducing
blood flow and oxygenation of
the heart.
According to research,
approximately three million
women have this condition and


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


'routine x-ray studies of the
heart, called an angiogram may
not even show it. Additional
testing by your medical doctor
or cardiologist may be neces-
sary to prove the condition
exists. Women with this con-
dition often do not experience
chest pain, but instead often
present to their medical doctor


with complaints of "lack. of
energy" "tiredness" or
"fatigue."
Unfortunately given the fact
that the angiogram may be nor-
mal, many women often are
mis-diagnosed as "neurotic or
depressed," said George Sopko
of the National Heart, Lung,
and BloodInstittite, who serves
as the project officer for the
ongoing WISE study.
The study is known as WISE,
for Women's Ischemia Syn-
drome Evaluation has followed
1,000 women since 1996.
While men also can develop
"coronary microvascular syn-
drome," they make up only 20
percent of its cases says WISE
chair C. Noel Bairey Merz, a car-
,diologist at Cedars-Sinai Medi-
cal Center in Los Angeles.
Since 1984, heart disease has
claimed the lives of more
women each year than the year
prior, but the WISE study is but
one of a .limited number of
studies focusing on women,
whereas the vast majority of
heart disease studies are per-


formed in men.
Research has shown that
many women with small vessel
heart disease such as "coronary
microvascular syndrome" go on
to develop large heart blockages
which ultimately can lead to
heart attack. Therefore, the
take home message says Sopko,.
"If you have symptoms, don't
sit on them. Go ahead and have
them checked out." For addi-
tional information on heart dis-
ease, go online to the American
Heart Association's website at
americanheart.org.


Anger a common
precursor of injury

We've talked about the
women. Now let's talk about
the men. At least once or twice
a week, I see some guy in my
office who got mad about
something and then goes off
and punches a wall and frac-
tures his hand. I almost never


see these "boxer's fractures" in
women. Now a researcher has
shown what many of us already
know, that anger often leads to
injury.
.Published in the Annals of
Family Medicine, the study
showed that people who were
"hostile" faced twice the risk of
injury of those "not hostile."
Furthermore, it showed that
men were twice as likely to hurt
themselves when angry as com-
pared to women.

cuss issues regarding sports, medi-
cine, and safety. It is not intend-
ed to serve as a replacement for
treatment by your regular doctor.
It is only designed to offer guide-
lines onh the prevention, recogni-
tion, and care of injuries and ill-
ness. Specific concerns should

Plant placement
key to landscaping

Valentine's Day has
come and gone and
instead of receiving
one of the items I suggested,
an unusual bouquet or a
flowering tree, my son-in-
law chose to give just a
rather insignificant gift to
my daughter a 10 day
cruise!
Now, how's that for a
great son-in-law. I wonder if
they'd like the company of
in-laws?
I hope your Valentine's
Day was as nice, but that
one is hard to top.
So, I am moving on to
something that will take my
mind off such luxury and
relaxation and will talk
today about what a lot of us
will be doing in a few weeks,
but now is the time to think
it through.
I imagine many of us will
be smitten by the re-land-
scaping bug, or at least by
the "ooh, isn't this pretty, I
wonder where we can put
it" bug. As the weather
warms up, we all head to
the colorful plants and
there's hardly a person that
doesn't come out with
something to grace his yard.
So, I want to remind you
of a few landscaping secrets,
guidelines, if you will, that
will make your selection and
placement of the plant a
good one that will come to
enhance your property
rather than detract from it.
It does not take a rocket
scientist to recognize a
pleasing landscape, one that
compliments the home
within its surroundings,
rather than be a jarring eye-
sore.
Now don't get me wrong.
Landscaping is an art and
since it is constantly chang-
ing i because of the plants'
growth,) the proper selec-
tion of and then placement
of the chosen plant material
ig what makes or breaks the
overall longtime appeal.
Your yard will either
become a jumble with no
structure, or it will grow to,
be a very pleasing palette
making your home stand
out as a jewel. Your home 'is
a big investment; proper
landscaping will only
increase its value.
Let me start out by saying
that if you have tall trees
behind your house, you are
indeed very lucky because
they form a perfect back-
drop for any home. The
home looks "nestled in"
right hornom the start. You are
a few steps ahead from the
get-go.
Every home should have
some tall trees behind it so
that from the street you can
see something green above
the roofline; it might have
to be close to the rear cor-
ners of your house or prop-
erty, but it always is a plus
to plant some evergreen or
deciduous trees that will
grow to be 50 feet or more
in the rear.
That having been said, let
me continue with the focus
on the front of the home.
The focus of today's article
will be on the landscaping
of the front yard of brand
new homes.
There are homes where it
is obvious that the contrac-
tor is beating the clock and
so to get the structures up in
a hurry, he "clear-cuts" the
land, removing every piece
of vegetation on the proper-

Recorders: Not child's play


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCL4TE EDITOR
Remember that plastic recorder your son or daughter
brought hdtiie from muitfic class ih the fourth giade?
You know the one. It's green or beige, comes with a plastic
sheath and collects dust in the dark recesses of your musically-
challenged child's backpack.
Ever wonder what one really sounds like?
You're in luck. The Beaches Fine Arts Series
is hosting one of the world's most innova-
tive and exciting recorder consorts, the
Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet, Sunday
at St. Paul's By the Sea Episcopal Church in
Jacksonville Beach.
The 3:30 p.m. concert is free and open to the
public.
According to its Web site, the Dutch ensemble,
which has been performing since 1978, plans to
take the audience on a "furious rollercoaster ride
through the world of sounds, combing tradition and
avant-garde, serious works and musical tidbits" in a
program called "Suites & Sweets."
The quartet may even break out its unusual arrange-
ment of a Stevie Wonder song that earned them the grand
prize at a music competition in Belgium 1981.
But you won't catch them playing one of those $5 plas-
tic recorders. According to their biography, "the group has
assembled a unique collection of more than 100
Renaissance, Baroque and modern recorders, ranging from
the 8-inch soprano to the sub-contrabass, which measures
more than 9 feet."
Founding member Karel van Steenhoven says the sub-
contrabass in B flat is "the largest in the world at this
moment."
Co-founder Daniel BrOggen plays the tenor recorder, while
Daniel Koschitzki and Andrea Ritter play alto and soprano
recorders, respectively.
The smaller the recorder, the higher the range. The larger,


the lower. .,
Recorders have been used as introductory musical instru-
ments in American schools for years and have been part of
European musical history since the 13th century.
Bach and Handel were two Baroque composers who featured
the recorder.
Koschitzki, who wrote a detailed history of the recorder
quartet on the group's website, says recorder ensembles date
back to the Renaissance period. ,'... ..,,
"They were mainly used to enhance the timbre in ensembles
and orchestras."
A forerunner to the flute, the recorder is a.simple
instrument with a blowhole, a thumb hole and sev-
eral finger holes.
Koschitzki said the recorder was rediscovered in
the early 1920s, followed by a revival of the recorder
quartet.
In 1974, the Tokyo Recorder Quartet preceded
the Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet as the first
professional recorder ensemble.
But Koschitzki says the Dutch group "created
an international awareness for the recorder quar-
tet as a serious ensemble formation."
In the hopes of fostering the formation of more
recorder quartets, the group will host a master class
for area recorder players at 6 p.m. Monday at the
church at 1150 5th St. N. I
The group will also perform at noon Monday at
the Mayo Clinic's Kinne Auditorium,' and for ele-
mentary school students at 10 a.m. Tuesday at St.
Paul's.
The Mayo Clinic concert is presented in collabo-
ration with the hospital's Humanities in Medicine
Program and the Beaches Fine Arts Series Inc.
Princess Rashid is the visual artist for this
month. Her media is acrylics. For more details

Artist wants her students



to jump-start their brains


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE ITEDRA LEADER EDITOR
Rachel Cruzan of Ponte Vedra Beach wants
each of her art students to jump-start the right
side of his or her brain before getting started
on a watercolor.
"The object of my instruction is to enlarge
their vision," Cruzan said this week as she pre-
pared for an art show today at Our Lady Star of
the Sea Catholic Church, Ponte Vedra.
Drawing on a book by Betty Edwards,
"Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,"
Cruzan said she has managed to bring out the
artist in persons with a range of talent and
experience, among them disabled children.
A former teacher of French, English and art,
she said enlarging one's vision is a step toward
translating something into a work of art.
"The better they really see it, the better they,
can translate," she said.
Some of Cruzan's works will be displayed at
today's show at Our Lady Star of the Sea, where
she and another Ponte Vedra artist, Rita
Bucciarelli, each teaches an art class for seniors.
Both classes are part of the seniors group at
Our Lady, Senior Connection, which meets
monthly at the church on State Road AIA.
Bucciarelli, who teaches painting in acrylics,
said this week that she is "very proud" of her


15 students, who meet Tuesdays at the church.
"I'm just thrilled with the class, and I'm hav-
ing a good time," she said.
She expects about 50 of her students' works
to be displayed today, she said.
She said she asked' her students to show
some of their early works as well as some more
recent, telling them, "I want them visitorss ] to
see how you have progressed."
"They've come a long way," Bucciarelli said.
One of Bucciarelli's students, Carol Richardt,
said she enjoys the class, which she joined in
November.
"It's very relaxing, and Rita is very informa-
tive," Richardt said. "She gives you little help-
ful hints and hopefully you can apply them."
Bucciarelli said the art lessons, which are
free, are a ministry for Senior Connection,
which is open to any Beaches senior, regardless
of religious affiliation.
In addition to monthly group meetings,
smaller groups meet for interests such as art les-
sons, card-playing, line dancing and exercise.
Membership in Senior Connection is $5
annually. For membership information, call
Cheryl Knorek at 543-1139 or e-mail Kathy at
kfriefCayahoo.com.
Today's meeting begins at 10 a.m. at the cul-
tural center at the back of the church.


Rachel Cruzan, who teaches watercolor painting at Our Lady
Star of the Sea in Ponte Vedra, holds one of her works in
progress. Over the mantle hangs one of her completed works.

Matheson: Bones, c rves, unity and depth

Cont. from B-1
tory three or four skinny trees
and a row of some scraggly
shrubs along the front of the
house before plopping a for
sale sign up. I will say no
more, but suffice it to say,
these builders must be in
cahoots with the nursery
industry and landscape archi-
tects. And, this occurrence is
not just in the starter home
categories, since the new mil-
lion dollar homesites have
also been bulldozed clean.
Can you relate?
My current home was the
result of this so I can relate
completely...in fact, I never
could understand why my
husband selected this yard
when he knew my feelings
about this naked-landscape
look. He told me it was "my
gardening challenge." After 10
years, it is better, but still a
work in progress.
By the way, Jacksonville has
a tree ordinance which tries (
by imposing a large fine) to
prevent builders from taking
down "specimen" trees, those
like the huge live oaks and
you'll see colored tags circling
the ones that are to be kept.
The lousy part of this tree
ordinance in my opinion, is
that except for the specimen
trees, the builder can remove'
absolutely everything and
then be mandated to replace
it all with only a few trees
having a trunk diameter
nowhere close to the ones he
cut down.
Makes me positively sick to
be honest with you. If you are
contemplating building and
found your "gorgeous lot",
think about selecting trees
you want to remain on it.
regardless of their size, and
tag them yourself....and then
be there the days the bulldoz-
er is working on your lot.
Moving on, there are a few
guidelines to landscaping.
Hopefully, they will make
sense to you! The basic struc-
ture of a landscape requires
what I call bones. Once they
have been determined and
planted, the rest is a piece of
Cake.
SRemiermier that I am basi- -
cally talking about new
homes that have close to
nothing on their property
except the dwelling/garage
which is usually attached to
the home. Those of you who
live in' places like Sawgrass
and Marsh Landing probably
already have the "bones"
because the builders had the
foresight ands guts to leave
the trees.
We are going to start with
this funky word that I hope
you'll remember...bonies. Our
bones give our body structure,
trees( or fairly large plant
material, but not necessarily,
literally, a tree) give a land-
scape its structure.
Look at your house from
across the street so you can
see the big picture; then look
at it's comers. Usually, a
tree/large plant placed in each
outside comer of the property,
that being closest to the
street, will be the first set of
bones. They can be in the
form of a tree, a clump of
trees, a shrub that will create a
large space, such as a crape
myrtle, or a cluster of skinny
palms or possibly one full
palm.
The tricks are not to place *
them in an absolutely identi-
cal line, nor should they ever
be placed right next to a side-
walk or the road, but about 5-
7 feet inside. They should be
the same type of plant. So far,
so good.
2. Bones
established.....place a broom
handle or garbage can in each
of these spots in the yarcd
knowing what kind of plant-
they'll represent.
Then, as you look at the
house and yard from the road,
now concentrate your vision
on the front corners of the


house itself. This is where the
second set of bones will go.
Two are out at the edges of
your lot somewhat close to
the street, and 2 are at basical-
ly either end of your struc-
ture, which may or may not
include the garage, but proba-
bly it will be the furthest
point.
Since you have propped up
a broom handle or some other
helping tool, you can now see
if the front looks crowded or
if it is ok. I have found that
where there is a very shallow
front yard, it is best to elimi-
nate a Bone or two in order to
avoid a closed in look.
We are not wanting the
house to look lost, just nicely
highlighted. And, [ must say,
this is one topic that is
extremely difficult to write
about; it is much, much easier
to be on the spot and giving
advice. Overcrowding creates
a very jumbled look, and
should be avoided so as you
plan, err on the sparse side;
you can always add plant
material.
Moving on from the
BONES, the next guideline is
to work not on "curb appeal",
but on "CURVE APPEAL"!
Straight lines are out, curving
lines are in......but unlike
fashion trends, this concept is
not a passing fancy but a .
binding guideline. From an
artistic standpoint, most all
houses are angular, and most
contractors put in the per-
functory shrubs in a straight
line along the foundation
walls of the house. Every
place there is a turn in .the
house, there is an abrupt halt
of our vision.
Landscaping should be
flowing, and curves of beds,
of sidewalks, of driveways, etc.
help achieve that. So I want
you to add some. CURVE to
your straight line of founda-
tion shrubs.
How? The easiest way is by
turning the end of the line
into an elongated lollipop
And in that lollipop part,
plant a lovely crape myrtle, a
flowering cherry tree, a large
[igustrum, some sort of accents
plant'that isra bitatll* and? '
slightly different in shape and
texture from the foundation
shrubs. Do the same on the
far opposite corner, remem-
bering that this may be as far
away as your garage. You do
not want to close in the foun-
dation beds to the right and
left of your front door, but to
mimic the feature from a dis-
tance away draws the eye to a
large palette of continuity.
Curve appeal and
bones......you are off to a
great start!
Drive around some neigh-
borhoods and get ideas if
what I am talking about
just doesn't make any sense
to you; you will see the bones
and the curves and you'll
easily see a jumbled mess or a
neat, interesting flow of
plants.
By the way, a hose makes a
very handy tool in forming
curves. Just play with it on
the ground and let it undulate
like a meandering stream.
A third guideline is a big
beef of mine, and it is called
"UNITY".
Here's an example and I
think you'll know what I
mean: a homeowner likes a
burgundy shrub called
Loripetulum, a variegated one
called Pittisporum, and a third

Weekend 4 The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader February 17, 2006





SCREEN


'Tristan and Isolde'


reinforces man's fate


Females assertive in animated films


Not content to portray a
U.S. President on TV, Geena
Davis now wants to behave
like one off-screen.
Davis, star of ABC's
"Commander in Chief," is
also the founder of See Jane, a
group that studies female
roles in children's media.
Davis and her group claim
that female roles are rare in
recent animated films, and
that for every speaking female
irt a cartoon, there are three
' l' es. "':' "
The PC police never tire of
this sort of thing, as though
everything in a movie (a car-
toon, even) must be perfectly
balanced.
Eight years ago, I wrote
about a California professor
who could find only timid
females in cartoons -.prima-
rily because that's all he was
looking for.
The study lauded "Mulan"
and "Finding Nemo's" D6ry
but could find little else to


S V l'

REVIEWER
cheer about. You want some
assertive cartoon women?
Here's the short list for the
past few years.
Jessie, no shrinking violet
of a cowgirl, in
Toy Story 2" (1999).
Princess Fiona, who won
over a prickly ogre in "Shrek"
(2001).


Elastigirl, a superheroine
and a mother of two in "The
Incredibles" (2004).
Princess Mindy, perhaps
the only intelligent character
in "The SpongeBob
SquarePants Movie" (20041.
Red Riding Hood and her
Granny, who outsmarted the
bad guys in this year's
"Hoodwinked."
, h- (h iletve'td dtscssi ri'g tole
models, let's check out some
Davis movie roles that she
might be less than proud to
point out to her three chil-
dren.
Her movie debut as the
lingerie-clad actress who
sends Dustin Hoffman into
apoplexy when he accidental-
ly enters her dressing room in
"Tootsie" (1982).
A minimally-dressed vam-
piress in "Transylvania 6-


5000" (1985).
A California bimbo who
makes friends with the aliens
who land in her swimming
pool in "Earth Girls Are Easy"
(1988).
And let us not forget the
grand feminist statement
"Thelma and Louise" (1991),
in which her lust for Brad Pitt
allows him to make off with
the women's rioney, and
whose happy ending shows'
the duo escaping a guaran-
teed prison term by driving
their convertible into the
Grand Canyon.
What is about women who
become famous for their sexu-
ality that turns them into
moral arbiters once they
become mothers?
Call it the Madonna
Syndrome, maybe. Just don't
call it a cry for upstanding
female role models.

by SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR
Is it man's lot to be unhap-
py? Judging by many classic
flicks, it seems an axiom. Now
a near classic, "Tristan and
Isolde," has joined the long
list of films that seemingly
reinforces this gloomy view of
humanity's fate.
A tragic legend from
England's dim past, it even
inspired a Wagnerian opera.
"Tristan and Isolde" is an epic
that's also a great date movie -
but bring lots of hankies. It's a
film sure to bring tears!
"Tristan and Isolde" opens
with 8th-century England in
desperate turmoil. The era of
Roman rule and brutality has
vanished, but so have their
order and security. England is
torn by petty internal strife,
and Irish raiders regularly steal
women and slaughter the
populace.
During a clan parley aimed
at uniting Britannia against
the Irish, disaster strikes. Their
enemies storm in, killing
Tristan's father. The 9-year-old
is saved by aspiring king Rufus
Sewell, who loses a hand in
the fray.
Despite the grievous wound,
Sewell ("Extreme Ops," "A
Knight's Tale") adopts young
Tristan (James Franco) and
takes him in as an adopted
nephew. The story picks up
again when Franco (the
"Spider Man" series, "City by
the Sea") is 18: he's tapped to
bait an ambush against Irish
invaders.
Youth always has more
heart than brains; Franco
throws himself into the melee.
Choosing the Irish champion
to battle, he loses and is
placed on a funeral barge.
But Franco isn't dead; he's
merely suffering the effects of
poison from the Irish champi-
on's sword.
* ; -. -1 1 'i i
S-I,


He drifts unconscious for
days, finally arriving on
Ireland's hostile shore. There
he's found and nursed back to
health by Isolde (Sophia
Myles), and they fall in love.
Ms. Myles ("Underworld,"
"From Hell") is a princess; her
faithful maid cautions her
identity should remain secret.
Knowing their love is hope-
less, Franco sadly sails back to
England.
Soon after, the political
winds shift. Ms. Myles, father
decides to marry her off to the
English as the prize in a fake
alliance. A tournament's held,
and Franco unknowingly wins
Ms. Myles' hand for foster
father Sewell.
Though "Tristan and Isolde"
is a two-hankie flick, bloody
battle scenes abound in this
PG-13, 125-minute movie.
Kevin Reynolds ("Robin Hood:
Prince of Thieves,"
"WaterWorld") does a fine job
directing this authentic-
appearing period piece.
The fine battle choreogra-
phy may have been the brain-
child of co-executive produc-
ers Ridley Scott ("Gladiator,"
the "Alien" series) and brother
Tony ("Top Gun"). With a
minuscule ad budget and an
off-base publicity campaign,
Ridley has made no secret of
unhappiness with 20th
Century Fox.
Dean Georgaris ("The
Manchurian Candidate")
wrote the screenplay and did a
fine job.
"Tristan and Isolde"
(www.tristanandisoldemovie.c
om) is excellent, but due to
the strategic planning errors
already mentioned, it'll soon
be forgotten.
You, however, shouldn't
miss it in theaters. It's one of
the few flicks lensed in recent
years that'll move even the
strongest man!

Wolf to speak on 'Angels and


Dreams' at Chabad Beaches


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Rabbi Laibl Wolf, an inter-
nationally recognized authori- -
ty on Jewish mysticism, spiri-
tuality and meditation, is
scheduled to speak in Ponte
Vedra and Jacksonville next
month.
In Ponte Vedra, he is sched-
uled to speak on "Angels and
Dreams," and in Jacksonville,
he will speak on Kabbalah.
Kabbalah is "a spiritual
interpretation .of. the Torah,"
said Rabbi Shmuli Novack of
Southside Chabad, sponsors of
Wolf's lecture at the
University of North Florida in
Jacksonville.
"So many people want to
know what Kabbalah genuine-
ly is," Novack said. "They
want a genuine spiritual expe-
rience."
"K'abbalah is Jewish mysti-
cism. True Jewish mysticism is
based wholly on the Torah,
the practical guidebook of
Judaism, and the lifestyle that
it mandates."
Wolf,-founding lecturer in
Jewish mysticism and spiritu-
ality at Melbourne University
in Australia, will speak at UNF
March 1 and at Chabad @ the
Beaches in Ponte Vedra March
2.

tion to Eastern practices such

itation to heal body and soul
and ways to develop a com-
passionate heart, according to.
the release.
On March 2 at 7 p.m., Wolf

Beaches on angels and
dreams. .
"These are two very fasci-
nating phenomena that we
deal with," said Rabbi
Nochum Kurinsky of Chabad.
@ the Beaches.
"People know that in
Judaism we believe in angels
but don't know what we ,
believe or why we believe in
angels."
"There is a folklore about.
dreams and interpreting'
dreams. There is a mystical
and spiritual element to
dreams," he said.

Snoring: It's A Problem Worth Solving!
It is estimated that up to 50% of adults have some snoring .
disorder. Snoring not only robs you of the rest you need, it
also robs those closest to you. You both wake up tired, and
often feel irritable and sluggish during the day.
What Causes Snoring?
When you're asleep, the muscles and soft tissues in your
throat and mouth automatically relax. The lower jaw and
tongue drop back, helping block and decrease the airway
opening. Snoring is also affected by diet, health, lifestyle.
age, %\eight. environment and other factors.
The Solution, is a small oral appliance professionally fitted
by a dentist. It has a unique inner lining that is softened by
the heat during the fitting process keeping the airway open,
effectively relieving the main cause of snoring
