AB keeps

pay for

officials

on auto-

adjusting

FROM STAFF
Atlantic Beach city commis-
sioners will continue to receive
automatic pay adjustments
despite an effort by the mayor to
make the salary change some-
thing the City Commission
votes on annually.
The commission in a 3-2 vote
Monday approved a chafige.to
the way their annual pal adJlbTt-
ments are handled. Their pay
will now automatically be
adjusted every August based on
the Consumer Price Index for
All Urban Communities.
Since 2002, commissioners'
salaries have been automatically
increased ever October based
on the average salary reflected in
the Florida League of Cities
Cooperative Salary Survey.
* Mayor Don Wolfson and
Wolfson and Commissioner'
Dezmond Waters voted against
the change.
WVolfson proposed removing
the automatic pay adjustments.
"I'm uncomfortable with an
automatic renewal," Wolfson
said, adding that the salary
should be voted on by the com-
mission every year. "I don't feel
it should be automatic."
Commissioner Mike Borno
proposed keeping the pay
adjustments automatic, saying
that having the commissioners
vote on pay raises every year
would make the issue political.
Currently, the mayor is paid
$10,772 annually and comnmis-
sioners are paid $6,556 annually.


A concrete block home pur-
chased by Michael and
Josette DeLoach is relocated
across Third Street Thursday
morning. Crews loaded the
home on a trailer at 32nd
Avenue S. and moved the
home to a lot on 33rd Avenue
North. Members of the
Jacksonville Beach police
Department and Beaches
Energy Services were on
hand to assist with the tricky
move. An Infiniti SUV was
towed to make way for the
wide load with the owner's
permission and was returned
to its parking spot once the
area was successfully navi-
gated. The move took over
three hours to complete.

Residents packed into Atlantic
Beach City Hall's Commission
Chambers Wednesday
evening to hear a proposed
plan for zoning changes aimed
at protecting the city's commu-
nity character. Residents
offered comments and sug-
gestions on the plan.
Consultant Nore' Winter, who
was hired by the city to help
craft the changes, outlined the
details of the proposed zoning
ordinance. Winter will take the
input he received from the
public and at meetings with
city officials this week and
make revisions to the plan.
Another public meeting on the
issue is scheduled for April.

Sign code


changes


will nix all


poles in JB

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
.-:,,Limiting the type of signs allowed in
Jacksonville Beach could prompt businesses to
bring non conforming signs into compliance
with the' city's evolving: sign ordinance, accord-
ing to the city's planning staff.
At Monday's Planning Coprnrissiop meeting,
planners Bill Mann and Steve Lindorff explained
the complexities surrounding the proposed
amendment to the Land Development Code reg-
ulating signs.
Under the changes, business owners will be
required to replace pole mounted signs with
monument signs to bring them into compliance
with the LDC.
The amendment, initiated by the City Council
following a November workshop to discuss a
series of proposed LDC changes, would limit the
type of free standing ground signs to monument
signs.
"Pole mounted or pylon signs would no longer
be permitted," Senior Planner Bill Mann said.
The maximum size for the stand alone single
occupant is 96 square feet calculated at one
square foot of sign area for every one square foot
of road frontage up to the maximum allowed.
The current code allows all types of ground
mounted signs at a maximum of 100 square feet,
Mann said. Free standing signs can be up to 30
feet tall.
Under the proposed amendment, the height of
a sign will be limited to eight feet with a maxi-
mum width of 12 feet.
For a multi-tenant shopping center type of
development, Mann said the size of the monu-
ment sign will be calculated at up to 96 square-

NB proposes petitions for speed humps

STAFF WRITER
The Neptune Beach City
Council appears ready to approve
a formal speed hump policy for
the city in hopes of reducing the
difficulty and politics in determin-
ing which neighborhood streets
should receive the traffic calming
devices.
For years the council has strug-
gled with how to go about placing
speed humps -which offer a more
gradual rise than speed "bumps" -
along residential streets when
some residents want them and
others don't.
After studying the issue for over
a year, the city has drafted a reso-
lution for a speed hump policy
which, if approved at Monday's
council meeting, would govern
how the city decides whether to
install the humps.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at
City Hall, 116 First Street.


The proposed policy is some-
what a mix of various policies
crafted in recent months by Police
David Sembach, City Councilor
John Weldon and Mayor Dick
Brown, according to city staff.
In the policy:
The city would need an initial
request from at least five residents
of different households who want
a speed hump on their street.
The city would then petition
the "effected residents" along the
the street. If at least 55 percent of
the the' residents favor the speed
hump, the city will direct staff to
conduct a thorough traffic study.
(If the petition fails, a new petition
for speed humps can not be
brought up for one year.
*Petition results, traffic study
results, cost estimates and recom-
mendations from the City
Manager and Police Chief will be
presented to the City Council at a
workshop meeting for considera-
tion. If the council comes to a con-


sensus to install a speed hump on
the street, the issue will be moved
to the council's next regular meet-
ing for approval.
*Prior to installation, the loca-
tion of the speed hump must be
reviewed by the Police
Department and Fire Department.
If approved, the installation of the
hump will be scheduled and paid
for by the city "as funds are avail-
able." The speed humps are esti-
mated to cost roughly $700 if
installed by the city's Public Works
or approximately $2,000 if
installed by an outside contractor,
according to city staff.
*Priority scheduling may be
arranged for residents willing to
pay half the cost of the speed
hump installation.
The proposed policy stipulates
that a speed hump must be
installed for at least one year be
its removal can be considered
unless unanticipated safety prob-
lems arise.

Signs: JB's roadside look to change


Cont. from A-1
feet for the first 96 feet of frontage plus one
quarter of a square foot of sign area for every
additional front foot up to a maximum size of
up to 192 square feet of sign area.
"A [shopping center] would need 480 feet of
road frontage to have that maximum size per-
mitted," Mann said.
The maximum height of a monument sign for
a shopping center would be 16 feet with the
width still limited at 12 feet.
The current limit is 30 feet with a provision
that allows an increase up to 40 feet by provid-
ing additional setbacks but Mann noted In
Monday's meeting that the additional height
must be capped at 35 feet to comply with the
city's 35-foot height restriction.
Planning and Development Director Steve
Lindorff said the change would be included in
the ordinance for final approval before the City
Council.
If a pole sign is-damaged or in need of replace-
ment, it would have to be replaced with a mon-
ument sign.
The city can utilize one of its "trigger points"
such as withholding building permits or other
construction documents until a sign is brought
into compliance, Lindorff said.
"This one after a period of 10 to 12 years got
us to where we are now with the sign code in
that no building permit is issued for an addi-
tion, alteration or improvement valued at
$5,000 or more unless all of the signs are
brought into conformity," he said.
"It became a reasonable way of dealing with.
an aesthetic issue without making It overly,
painful."
Signs that exceed the size requirement or
extend into the right of way or over a sidewalk
are often rotated to attain conformity,
"We had many, many signs that extended
into the public right of way. A few were rotated
180 degrees and that's why," Lindorff said.


"They probably needed a new roof and we said
'you have to do something about the sign if we
give you a permit for a new roof'"
As a 21-year employee with the city, Lindorff
said he has seen a number of changes to the
city's sign code.
"Sign regulation is as touchy an area of Land
Development Code law as you'll ever find,"
Lindorff said.
The sign code lists eight trigger points that
result in the removal of a sign, he said.
The city could simply revoke the permit for a
sign if it violated the ordinance or if there were
safety concerns, faulty construction, lack of
maintenance or unsightly appearance.
All signs removed under that provision would
have to be replaced within 20 days or face
action before the Code Enforcement Board.
, Abandoned signs or any occasion where there
is no longer a business has 30 days to remove a
sign.
In cases involving a change in ownership or
tenancy, the code requires the owner to replace
a nonconforming sign.
'Zoning approvals including rezonings and
conditional use variances "can also.trigger con-
formity," Lindorff said.
The newest amendment, he said, will render
"every ground mounted pole sign in
Jacksonville Beach non conforming" because
they meet the size requirements defined in the
prior code.
"Basically every sign that is out on the road is
non conforming and these [trigger points] will
be what will result in these signs being changed
out from a pole sign to a monument sign,"
Lindorff said.
Business owners will then face the challenge'
of maintaining a clear sight clearance triangle at
any access point because monument signs can
block the view from driveways and intersec-
tions.

OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH

A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY,

NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES


March 3. 2006

The Leader's Opinion


Legislation


would protect


free speech

Legislation has been filed for the 2006 Legislative Session
that will make it harder for plaintiffs to bring invasion of pri-
vacy lawsuits that punish free speech. This legislation will
correct abuses that have recently arisen under Florida law
and will protect the free flow of truthful information to the
public.
Over 200 years ago, prior to the American Revolution,
English law applicable in the Colonies allowed damages to
be awarded merely for publishing words that were harmful
to reputation. Truth was riot a defense. To the contrary,
some courts followed the maxim that "the greater the truth
of the statement, the greater the libel." Fortfinately,
American juries,, state legislators and', ultimately, the U.S.
Supreme Court rejected this form of suppression of free
speech, and today all speech about matters of.pu.blic-con-
cern is protected by the First Amendment unless it is shown
to be false, the product of the fault of the publisher, and the
cause of actual injury.
Yet, the law applied by some state courts in Florida ignores
this historic and important evolution of free speech protec-
tion and reverts to early English libel law that placed little
value on the publication of truthful information. In "false
light" invasion of privacy lawsuits, plaintiffs seek damages
- for publication of truthful information from which the pub-
lic might draw false conclusions about the plaintiff. The
suits are disturbing because any person can use them to pun-
ish the publication of truthful information and, worse, to
deter the future publication of truthful information.
In a recent case, the Pensacola News Journal was sued for
false light invasion of privacy based on.an article that the
plaintiff claimed implied he murdered his wife during a
hunting trip. The plaintiff never disputed that he had fatal-
Iy shot his wife but contended the newspaper's use of the
phrase "shot and killed" implied murder. The article stated
in a subsequent paragraph that authorities had determined.
that the shooting was a hunting accident. Although each
sentence in the story was true and based entirely on public
records, the plaintiff claimed the article placed him in a
"false light," or, more accurately, placed him in a "bad
light." The jury accepted the argument and entered a verdict
against the newspaper for $18.28 million dollars.-The case
is now on appeal.
Othercases filed around the state by a variety of plaintiffs
also seek millions or even billions of dollars, in damages for
articles arid television broadcasts that are entirely true and
based on information.taken from public records, but that are
claimedto convey false and defamatory implications.
These lawsuits, often leveled against newspapers and
other media, can'also be directed at anyone who publishes .
-truthful information. All persons and businesses must now
prepare to litigate the impression that may be created by the
..tmthful, reporting oflthe contents *of:publicvrecords.:cFiop..p
Sepcample,,businesses that use.public records to compile.iinfor-,
mation for potential employers or to supply financial insti-
tutions with credit reports may be sued for the impression
created by their reports.
The United States Supreme Court, courts throughout the
nation, and even most courts in Florida have recognized.for
-_many years that the "false light" tort is easily misused by
plaintiffs seeking to punish speech about public matters.
This has led many states to reject these lawsuits or to tight-
en the requirements'for bringing them.
In a similar, bipartisan effort to correct this growing prob-
lem in Florida, Senator Rod Smith (D-Gainesville), has filed
a bill (SB 1346) that will clarify the requirements for bring-
ing a false light lawsuit. Representative David Simmons (R-
Altamonte Springs), Chairman of the House Judiciary
Committee, likewise is supporting a proposed committee"
bill to do the same thing.
These bills will ensure that truthful speech is protected
against "false light" claims just as effectively as it is protect-
ed against libel claims. This not only will protect legitimate
reporting by journalists and the right of the public to news
and information, it also will protect individuals and busi-
nesses that publish truthful information as a part of their
businesses. '. -- ,

If you were at one of the

years, the last 10 years in
Ponte Vedra Beach.
Our two sons are products
of the public school system
and three of our grandchil-


lic schools.
We believe strongly that
the new-high school should
be in the Ponte Vedra com-
munity which I define as east
of the Intracoastal WVaterway
and preferably at the newly
proposed Mickler site. We
encourage you to join with
us in support of this new ini-
tiative and encourage readers

It is the right thing to do!

school. I have, looked .at*re-'
fully, as everyone on the
school board should, at the
facts about the environmen-
tal issues and the options for
a high school in the area.
Why this site?
Traffic patterns and access
are very good
Amount of land is more
than adequate
Price is great for county
and State FREE!!
Environmental property
being given is high quality
and will give more animals
and wildlife a permanent
habitat
A location east of the
Intracoastal Waterway makes
sense for residents living in
the school district. The dis-
trict covers the eastern coast
along A1A as far north as JTB
and south to St Augustine.
Only a very small percentage
of residents of the district
live west of the waterway.

This offer is vastly superior
to the earlier one by Mrh

it.
This would pull St.Johns

Biologist supports using Gua.nal
("p- _rana


To the editor:
I was a field biologist fresh out fb college when
I joined "Friends of Newport Bay" in southern
California as a field naturalist and Saturday pro-
gram docent. The purpose .of this group was to
interpret the biology and history of the upper
Newport Bay tidal basin to visitors, thereby pro-
tecting it. It is a very important ecological habitat
for the migratory bird Pacific Flyway, then under
severe development -pressure. ,A controversy
existed several years before, not unlike the Guana
Preserve question: a new college, the University
of California, Irvine, was being developed just
south of the basin on its border, and the storm
drainage was being directed into the bay.
The important point for the purposes of the
proposed Ponte Vedra high school is what
occurred to solve the dilemmas faced by that
development. The UC system and regents
embraced the idea that the school was being
placed next to a protected habitat and made it
part of the new school's core values. Science and
anthropological sites, use as a natural laboratory,
research into the preservation of the bay, species
specific counts, development of the drainage
infrastructure and treatment system, and, other
activities, have improved the Upper Newport Bay.,
preserve, by making it into an integral part of the'
landscape there. Its future has been better secured,
through this partnership, despite being on some
of the most expensive potential real estate in the
world, right next to the famed Newport Hprbor.
There is an opportunity to do something simi-
lar with the new high school site proposed on
Micklers Landing Road. With some innovation
and partnership, the school could embrace the
Guana parklands as one of its core values. As the
site was developed, special care towards maximniz-


ing similar values, as the UC system did out west,
would act as a natural border guard to future
degradation of this resource. Road and parking
planning, athletic facilities, and natural buffers
would be seen through this prism. Perhaps a
magnet environmental studies emphasis, a school
within a school concept, a Planning and
Development curriculum geared towards accom-
modating the rapid growth that our county will
continue to have, or other environmental under-
pinnings (such as the name of the School, i.e.
Guana Preserve High School), could be used.
Certain building principals which take into
account the impacts of the school would also be
maximized to buffer the effect.
The impact of future transportation costs
which include increasing environmental costs)
alone dictate the need for a local high school in
Ponte Vedra. If the expense of incorporating
these values into the school's development costs
were juxtaposed against the long term savings of
bus cost alone, the additional cost would pay for
itself. If this approach solved the controversy of
putting the site there, which would, in turn,
lessen development costs, it would also offset the
cost of the approach. Most importantly, the citi-
zens of Palm Valley, the intracoastal area, and
Ponte Vedra, would have a school which has
something special to give back to the community .
Development of the educational values of the site
could be' as important .as the physical plant.
Development is not the culprit here. Guiding it
may be the answer.
Mr. Peyton's offer is very generous and should
be met affirmatively.

Gift is a


real boost


Jf there was ever a southern
belle soul mate for St.
Francis of Assisi, it would
have been my Aunt Ruth.
During the past seven decades,
Ruth has spent numerous
,sleepless nights nursing sick or
injured dogs or cats. She has "
also emptied her bank account
more than once in order to
' provide medical care for a crit-
ter in need.
In addition to filling her own
home with rescued animals,
Ruth helped care for creatures at
my Uncle Sam's farm, which is
located 20 miles from her home.
Since Sam, who was mentally
and physically handicapped,
had one of the most forlorn col-
lections of rescued rag tag dogs,
Ruth's furry friends loved to
visit.
"What else could I do?" my
aunt explained when I asked
how she managed to hold a part
time jog, keep up with her own
animals, and make a 40 mile
round trip trek to help care for
the crew at Sam's.
"The animals always brought
Sam so much joy," Ruth told me
after her baby brother died.
Though Ruth would occasion-
ally fuss *at Sam for letting
another scrawny stray move in,
she would never have tossed
any of them out. In fact, my
[rint.&'B helpd establish. a
..IamFin hef dihetown o~'f
Tupelo,. Mississippi, whereby
dogs and cats could be altered at
a low price.
"It's the key to stopping the
overflow of unwanted pets," she
preached.
Ruth's employer, not a fan of
fur, was so touched by my aunt's
steadfast devotion to her cause
that she began giving her a most
unusual gift each Christmas.
"Maybelle did it again," Ruth
told me this year. "She gave me
$3,000 for the spay/neuter pro-
gram."
Though the money was usual-
ly gone within a few weeks,
Ruth was always amazed at her
boss' generosity.;
Last month Ruth was sad-
dened when her 94-year-old
employer died.
"Maybelle was a dear friend
who touched the lives of hun-
dreds,." Ruth lamented
Little did Ruth know of
Maybelle's plan to touch hun-
dreds more, especially the furry
kind.
After Maybelle's death, her
daughter Emily flew in from
Texas to handle the necessary
arrangements. Emily tried to
give Ruth her mother's expen-
sive antiques and art work.
"Oh no," Ruth declined. "I
; appreciate your generosity, but
all that needs to go to you and
your four boys."
Ruth went on to tell Emily
e that at age 70, she was not in
g need of anything.
"Would you at least take
Mama's car," Emily prodded.
"Since you.used it to drive her
around, that only seems fitting.
We'd be so.honored if you'd take
it."
Ruth surveyed her ownlO-.-
year-old junker and accepted.,
Paper work completed, my
elderly aunt became the owner
of the only new vehicle she'd
ever had.' Last week Ruth got a
s final unexpected surprise
"Mama left something else for
you," Emily said when she
Called Ruth. "She left instruc-
tions for me to give you a gift for
your animal care projects. You'll
be receiving a $1000 dollars for
Every year you worked for
Mom .' .'
My aunt, who'd taken care of
Maybelle's business affairs for
over 46 years, was stunned.
"I mean you now have
$46,000 to do your pet projects,"
Emily assured. "Even though
Mama wasn't an animal lover to
Begin with, your steadfast com-
mitment to their care won her
over. I'm stire Mama will be
looking down and smiling at
what you,;; do with this gift."
I'll bet Saint Francis will be
grinning as well.. ,

Coalition should .

shift its focus


To the editor:
Escalating property values at
the Beaches impact everyone,
not only those displaced from
low income housing. All prop-
erty owners will pay higher
taxes, some will become
"house poor". There are also
positive impacts for residents,
as those living near upgraded
properties might expect a
lower crime rate and increased
values in their neighborhoods.
The First Coast does offer
reasonably priced rental hous-
ing, it just may not be where
each individual prefers to live.
The marketplace is creating
this situation, and we all need
to adapt to changing circum-
stances. The world doesn't end


at the Intracoastal!
The Beaches Housing
Coalition might be more effec-
tive if they focused their efforts
in helping existing property
owners in need fix up their
properties before they are
forced out of them.
Often we see generous dona-
tions made by individuals so
that new low cost homes can
be built (but not in their com-
munity, of course) for those in
need. That money and effort
would go further. by helping
those without the means to
maintain or upgrade their
property in the face of rising
costs.

To the editor:
On behalf of the children
and communities of Ponte
Vedra Beach and Palm Valley, I
ask that you support the NEW
Fee Title land exchange pro-
posal *put forth by Mr. Herb
Peyton. He has offered to
exchange 50 acres of his 104-
acre Outpost parcel, for.
approximately 50 acres of State
owned land for a. public high
school in Ponte Vedra.
Mr. Peyton's land ,has been
identified by the Florida,Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission as a "high priority
acquisition," needed to deter
development along the shores
of Lake Ponte Vedra (Guana
River). 'His proposal would
allow the state to protect and
conserve 50 acres of high-
value, natural resource land it
seeks in exchange for 50 acres
of Pine Plantation land, owned
by the state; located behind the
new Publix Shopping Center
on Mickler Road.
This NEW proposal needs to
be heard because Mr. Peyton's
"no strings" offer promotes the
following benefits:
Our Community Wins: A


Ponte Vedra High School with-
in our community will be a
source of spirit, pride, and a
central 'rallying point we cur-
rently do not have.
State Conservation. Wins:
Public protection is extended
to 50 acres of higher value, nat-
ural resource land that the state
has identified as a "high priori-
ty acquisition."
State and County Tax Payers
Win: At no cost, the State gains
50 acres of higher value, natu-
ral resource land while the
county also acquires 50 acres of
land for-the high school at no
cost.
Our Kids Win: They will
attend a high school in the
community where they live.
This NEW proposal not only
secures land for a much needed
community high school, but
protects and conserves an in-
holding of the GRWMA.TiThiis
proposal would achieve both at!
no land acquisition cost to
either the State or St. Johns
County.
. How can you say no?
Tanya Hamel
Ponte Vedra Beach


To the editor:
On Monday night as I sat
and listened to :everyone's,
opposition to the outdoor seat-:
ing that was being discussed at
the Planning Commission I
couldn't help but think that
that most everyone was miss-
ing what the intent of the
Planning Departments recom-
mendation was.
It is merely wanting to make
changes to the process that
would allow restaurants the
opportunity to have outdoor
seating. I personally welcome
this change and,.I do believe it
is time for it.
Jacksonville Beach has few
outdoor seating establishments
and now with the demise of
First Street Grille it has even
less. I am hoping that both the


Planning Department arid the'
City Council revisit this plan in
the form of a workshop. I do
believe that there are still issues
that need to be resolved in this
change in the process but I do
believe that it can be done.
In conclusion I do want,to
stress that I am against any
outdoor bars that would allow'
the consumption of alcohol
into the late hours of the
night. However, I do believe
that the Planning Department
is making a move in the right
direction with this proposal.
Lets keep working on this
together and hopefully the city
can come up with a plan that
would be agreeable with both
residents and restaurant own-
ers.

ers, of a recruiter looking for a
new employee gathered up
everything he didn't need. "The
wait staff came by and he care-
fully handed them over and
said, 'I won't be using all of
these, so you might as well take
them.'"'
Lydia Ramsey is recalling one
of her horror stories: "The wait-
er was so taken aback, he didn't
know what to do. I guess that
person had never seen that
much flatware."
Ramsey has seen and heard of
a faux pas or two. It's her busi-
ness, after all, to know what to
do when you sit down at a fancy
dinner or inten'iew for a job or
introduce yourself or whatever.
She runs a business in Savannah
called "Manners That Sell" she
* has a book by the same name -
and she does seminars on busi-
ness etiquette all over the coun-
try. ,
I told her of the time I inter-
viewed a prospective reporter
who ate an apple while he
talked.
."His mother probably didn't
think to tell him not to do that,"
Ramsey says. "I don't think I
would have said to my children,
'Don't take food into the inter-
view.' I think they'd have more
sense than to do that."
But what do you do when
your cell phone rings during a
job interview? A college student
asked that question lust the
Other day.
All the students looked at
Ramsey as if to say, "Of course,
we all have our cell phones with
us."' .
"Well," she told them, "you
would turn them off, wouldn't
you?" -And that means before
you go for the interview. And
you get rid of your gum and bot-
tied water.
So, I, ask, what's the big deal
about carrying a bottle of Water
everywhere? The etiquette
expert doesn't know, but she has
noticed that a cell phone and a
bottle of water are now essen-
tials of life.
Lydia Ramsey is like me. She's
happy with plain old tap water.
But she knows some waiters
aren't happy with our choice.
She recalls the time in California

games make war seem like a lot
of fun, something that can be
easily controlled, and if you get
killed just hit the reset button!
In real life, dying or having
your arm or leg blown off is
nothing like a video game. It's
for real, and it's permanent. Is.
a few thousand dollars for col-
lege three or four years down
the road worth dying for?

John Hardebeck:

De-clutter me
Spring spruce-up is beckon-
ing, and so I'm pondering a
once-in-a-lifetime project: clean-
ing out the utter clutter in my
house. After 44 years at the same
address, I've amassed ,a mass of
"items" that could fill a landfill.
However, since I grew up during
the Not-So-Great Depression, a
waste not-want not era, the
prospect of removing all the
things I could never part with is
daunting. I might phone
Neptune Beach city hall to see if
there's an extra charge to have
the garbage men collect my
garage.
My wife, who passed away in
1998, was the direct opposite of
me when it came to "stuff."
Wherever she was, at home or
work, she was the first-string
pitcher. If it didn't have a useful
function, out it went. She want-
ed to de-rubbish my study but
refrained because several people
who went in there have never
been seen again.
We had a very happy, 50-year
marriage. Still, I consistently
picked up my socks, etc., and
took out the garbage because I
was always a little unsure
whether she was gonna throw
me out, too. Okay, that's a gag,
but since she died, I'm afraid my
pack rat penchant has become
more pronounced. If she were
warming up in the Pullpen, I'd
call her for relief.
I'm obviously not alone on
this foible. There's an enterpris-
inig guy in New York, Ron
Alford, who calls my malady
"disposophobia: the fear of get-
ting rid of stuff." He runs a com-
pany called Disaster Masters and
offers professional help to peo-
ple whose digs have gotten so
overstuffed there are fire, safety,
andhealth hazard issues.
The implication is that such
folks have a mental problem.
However, I've always been able
to justify my, hoarding. For
instance, I still have a file cabi-
net -stuffed with customer docu-
ments from when we owned a
travel agency 15 years ago.
Then there are the broken chairs
that have been hanging in my
garage for about a decade. I fig-
ure that one of these days ['ll fix
'em.
I must adrrit,;.. can:.atmq t
hear hvy wife 'laughifng'rat'nfe
while she purges St Peter's files.

OPINION


ROB
DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR


WBC: A

good idea

tha does

not work

It looks good on paper, but
Ithe World Baseball Classic
is turning, out to be a
nightmare fir major league
baseball plain s, managers
and owners
Ostensibly, the \VBC is the
first true international compe-
tition featuring 16 teams of
all-stars from around the
globe.
In reality, when San Diego
Padres catcher Mike Piazza
suits up for Italy, a country
he's never even visited, the
WBC becomes a farce. Gene
Orza, chief operating officer
of the players association,
convinced Piazza to play for
Italy and tried to get Yankees'
pitcher Mike Mussina to do
the same.
"I told him I'm not Italian
and nobody in my family is
Italian," Mussina informed
the New York media.
Among the big problems
with the WBC is its timing.
Play begins Friday and major
leaguers are still roundingq'nto
shape after a long winter of
hibernation. It's pitchers that
are most at risk of doing dam-
age to their arms by trying to
hrow hard-too early in the
preseason. Tjhe:y cai aTln i ~
they plain to take it easy, but
in a dose ballgame the adren-
aline will kick in and the
temptation to reach back for
something extra on that 3-2
fastball will he hard -to resist.
Boston Red Sox slugger
David Ortiz, who will play for
the Dominican Republic, cites
the limited pitch count and
overall shapg.of the partici-
pants as reasons play will be a
notch belowiregular season
level. -
"I see it li. pretty much
spring training games," he
said. "I don't think any one
of the players is ready to play
a full game vet, so it's going
to be interest ng."
Another blem with the
WBC is tha9 pits teammates
against each other. Yankees
shortstop Derek Jeter will play
for the United States while
outfielder Be lnie Williams
will, don. th olors of his
native Pue rtRico. Will
Williams tr 'take Jeter out
at second on a double-play?
How would combustible
owner George Steinbrenner
react to an injury to either
player?
But perhaps the largest
problem with the World
Baseball Classic is that some
of the biggest names have
withdrawn. Stars such as
Manny Ramirez, Pedro.
Martinez and Vladimir
Guerrero three big guns on
the talent-laden Dominican
squad have opted out.
Yankees outfielder Hideki,
Matsui will not play for ,
Japan. Mariano Rivera has
said thanks, but no thanks to
Panama.
Initially, the WBC was sup-
posed to provide a test of the
best against the best, but with
so many late scratches it's
more like the out-of-shape
pretty goods versus the we're-
kinda-talented also rans.
The recent completed
Winter Olympics demonstrat-
:" ed national pride can be a
great motivating factor. Many
participants in the WBC are
proud of their heritage and
wish to honor the colors on
the front of their jerseys.
But let's nrt kid ourselves.
Major Leagii baseball players
truly play f.oenly one color:
Green. There's no money on
the line in the classic, but
players will soon return to the
egotistical pursuit of playing
for the name on the back of
their jerseys iThat's when
we'll know fleally is baseball
season.

Senators softball struggling


FROM STAFF

After a 2-1 start to the softball
season, Fletcher has struggled
since, the most recent loss a
lopsided one to Paxon, 11-1,
Wednesday night.
The Golden Eagles pounded
out 10 hits and capitalized on
five Fletcher errors to build a 9-
1 lead by the fourth inning. The
Senators had just four hits
including a double by pinch-
hitter C.C. Strobridge and a
triple off the bat of shortstop
Jamie VanderBaan.
Fletcher scored its lone run in
the fourth frame.
Offense was supposed to be
the Senators' strong suit this
season but the bats have strug-
gled in recent games.
Defensively, head coach Shanel
Lopez has made some infield
changes in hopes of cutting
down on the enors which have
plagued Fletcher from the
beginning.
Starting pitchers Jenny
Griswold and Becky Frank have
alternately had. outstanding
and difficult times on the
mound this season, and finding,
consistency in all three phases
of the game has seemed to
elude' Fletcher in 10 outings
thus far.
After confidence-building
wins over Englewood and First
Coast to open the regular sea-
son, the Senators were crushed
22-2 at Orange Park on Feb. 13
and followed up with a home
loss to Sandalwood to even
their record at 2-2.
Wednesday's loss dropped
Fletcher to 3-7 on the season
with perhaps the toughest part
of the schedule still ahead. The
good news for the Senators is
five of the next six games are at
home.
Fletcher was set to host
Mandarin on Thursday night
then Wolfson on Monday and
Gainesville Buchholz next
Tuesday. After a trip to
Sandalwood next Thursday, the
Senators return home March 13
to play Providence and Forrest
There is still time for the
Senators to turn things around
before the Gateway.Conference
Tournament begins April 3.

Nease lacrosse scores key victory


By CHUCK ADAMS
SPORTS WRITER
The Nease boys lacrosse team contin-
ued its strong start with a morale-build-
ing, 11-8 win over visiting Bolles
Wednesday.
The victory came on
the heels of two earlier
wins, a season-opening,
15-3 decision over
Maclay, followed by an
8-3 triumph against J
Episcopal, another
school the Panthers have
found hard to beat.
Nease lost at Winter
Park 14-4 Feb. 25, mak-
ing the Bolles win that
much more important.
One of the best morale PANTHER
boosters may have come
during the fourth quar- BULLDOG
ter, when Nease athletic
director director Ted Barbato, standing on
the sideline, said lacrosse becomes an
official sport, a sanctioned sport, next
year.


Senior midfielder Jlordy McManus and
senior attacker Craig Carson led the
Panthers with four goals each. Three of
MNcManus' goals came in the third quar-
ter, while Carson netted two in the sec-'
ond.
Freshman attacker Brett Angerer, all 5-
7 and 125 pounds of
V/ him, put two behind
/ BoUes goalkeeper Ryan
SSwitzer, while junior
midfielder Stockton,
returning from a shoul-
der injury, had. a goal
and two assists.
Nease is at Oak Hall-
Saturday.
To most of the
Panthers, the victory
was their first-ever
S against the Bulldogs.
That includes Chandler
IS 8 Barden, one of the
team's four senior cap-
tains, along with MfcManus, defender
Rob Bauwens: anid goalkeeper Zach
Wondrow.
Barden is a defensive mainstay at 6-5,


190-pounds, size he used to play tight
end on Nease's state championship foot-
ball team. ,
"We never actually beat them in the,
four years I've been playing," said
Barden; noting he can leave on two good
notes. "We also beat Episcopal, who
we've never beat since I've been here."
Barden credited hard work for the
team's success: In that vein, he singled
out four teammates: Stockton, Bauwens,
McManus and junior midfielder Grant.
Walker. .
"Our hard work paid off," said Barden,
who added of prospects for the rest of the
season, ."It's going to be good."
McManus, who beat Bolles as a fresh-
man, was pleased by the result.
"It feels great beating Bolles for the first
time in a while," said McManus. "I think
we're going all the way this year. I think
we played a very good game. We all
moved the ball around real well. I think
it's going to carry us in the long run."
"IPthink we had a good night," said
Wondrow, who has been in goal for three
years, the first as backup to Vietnamese
exchange student Kha Nguyen. "I think


the middies really played well."
The Panthers played a couple men
down, due to penalties, during the game.
They were flagged 15 times.
"I think overall We did good," said .
Wondrow. "We're going tp make a good
foundation here at Nease,. We've got a lot
going this year.".
Nease head coach Jack Francis wrapped
up the win by saying, "It feels real good.
The 'kids are happy. They worked real
hard. It got a little too close f6r comfort at
the end. The good thing is we won."
Francis returned to the task of improv-
ing his team.,
"We also found out we have some
things to work on. We have some disci-
pline problems, as far as playing position,
not trying to take the ball away and that
kind ,of thing. I think we'll get there.
We're getting better each week."
Francis hasn't been surprised by his
team's 3-1 start after going 7-6 last year.
"We've got a good team," he said, then
added of Bolles, "These guys have gradu-
ated a lot of seniors. They're young.
They're going to be a force to be reckoned
with." '

FISHING




'American Sportsman' was must-see television


W here were you "when
the music died"? Or .
better yet do you
know who "the music" was?
Of course, it was along .time
ago, andi in reality there are
more people alive today that
were not alive then and there
are people who are still alive
now that were alive then.
Confused? Me too. The
music. was Buddy Holly "who
was named the music in a 1971
song titled American Pie, writ-
ten by Don McLean. Buddy
was to rock and roll music
what Curt GowdV was to hun-
dreds of thousands of aspiring
young men and women of the
sixties and seventies who were
hooked on fishing. .
Back in the day of Curt's
show, '."The American
Sportsman," viewing fishing
on television was4 severely lim-
ited.
Let's, see we, had Gadabout
Gaddis, and locally, Monroe
Campbell. Gadabout was an
older gentleman whose show
was basically about his fishing
exploits where he piloted his
small plane to remote places in
the northern U.S. and Canada
chasing muskies and walleyes.
That show was, well, to a
young man in Florida less than
inspiring. Don't get me wrong,
it was a good show but catch-
ing walleyes has got to be kin
to catching saltwater sail cats.

in relief?


New study supports it


Set's say that you go to the
1 doctor for some ongoing
L pain that you have been
having in your knees. You tell
him about how they ache, swell,
and grind when you move
them. You have tried some
medications such as Aleve and
Advil, but they are still bother-
ing you, and you are interested
in what other treatments are
available.
So what would you think if he
told you that he had some
thoughts about trying leeches
on your knees? Leeches? Yes,
leeches.
According to a recent study
from the Annals of Internal
Medicine leeches may provide
relief against the pain of arthri-
tis. Apparently, leech saliva
contains several anti-inflamma-
tory substances, and in as little
as one treatment of four leeches
placed on the knee, pain was
reduced.
The topically-applied leeches
are believed to release their sali-
.' a into the local soft tissues,
thus alleviating pain. In the
. past, topical creams containing
anti-inflammatory medicines
have been shown to be effective
against arthritis pain and
researchers were interested in
comparing the two against each
other.


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR
In this particular study, physi-
cians studied 51 patients with
knee osteoarthritis. Each was
given a single treatment of four
to six leeches applied to the
knee, or a 28-day topical cream
containing the nonsteroidal
drug diclofenac.
Researchers monitored each
patient's pain, function, and
stiffness. They found that after
one week, arthritis pain was
reduced considerably after leech
therapy more so than with
the topical cream. The leech
therapy group also had better
relief from stiffness.
Now, I have to admit that I
cannot foresee this becoming a
regular part of anyone's practice.


I just can't see patients lined up
in the office with the little
blood-suckers their arthritic
joints.
However, it is certainly fore-
seeable that the active ingredi-
ent in leech saliva could be
chemically duplicated and then
used in either an oral or topical
form.
Dress for the crash,
not the ride
Earlier this week I had to take
a young man to late-night emer-
gency surgery after he crashed
his motorcycle. He sustained
terrible contaminated road
bums, several lacerations, and
fractured his collarbone.
He was not wearing a helmet
and is lucky he didn't sustain a
severe head injury or even lose
his life.
I heard one of my staff, who
does happen to ride a motorcy-
cle say to "dress for the crash,
not the ride." I found this quite
a profound statement.
When you are in a car, you are
required to wear a seat belt and
are likely protected by an airbag.
But on a motorcycle, you really
aren't required to wear a thing.
That doesn't make sense to me.
I know that you're not required
by law to wear a helmet, but it
just makes good sense. Think
about it.

series at Atlantic Theatres


BARBARA
MATHESON
GARDENING
COLUMNIST


March is month

to feed the grass

There is a nursery that I
pass nearly every day
and its billboard says,
"Spring is near, time to pre-
pare."
This is exactly what this
time of year is all about for
the homeowner who has an
interest in maintaining an
attractive yard.
And, I cannot imagine
any homeowner who would
want to let their landscape
deteriorate.
A nicely kept yard only
increases the value of one's
home, tremendously.
This is also the time of
year when we just want to
be outside, working and
planting.
It is warm, but not too
warm, it is sunny, but not
scalding, and the dirt smells
so good when turned over
with a shovel.
So, let's prepare, and in a
month, I promise you will
be reaping all the rewards.
Let's look at the lawn first.
Chances are it still looks
pretty lousy from winter. It
is brown, except for those
dang-weeds that are green
and overly obvious.
It is sparse in areas, and
perhaps in many areas it
really looks dead.
Depending on where you
live, yours might be turning
green already which means
you will be among the lucky
few to get the lawnmower
ready for its first spring
fling.
If you already feel over-
whelmed, just take a cup of
coffee with you for a, leisure-
ly stroll through your yard,
mentally making a few
notes of things to do later.
It can be overwhelming,
and although I am making
light of that fact, the early
spring seems to show what
is the worst in our yards,
and it is very easy to say, the
heck with all of it, I can't
handle it.
I've been there, all too
many times, and if there
have been a few extra coins
kicking around, my great
yardman comes and takes
away the sting. But we are
retired now, and there are
not so many of those coins
clanging, so more of the
yard work must come from
my husband and myself.
So, trust me, I am with
you on that stroll of inspec-
tion.
Later on this month you
will want to do the one
chore that is the most
important to getting the
lawn off to a good start, and
actually if you do that, you
are many steps ahead.
Fertilizing, simply giving
food to the grass, is the
number one job for the
month of March.
Grass needs food to sur-
vive just like we do, and
March is the month to feed
it.
The word for that is fertil-
izing since there are many
types of lawn food available,
It can be very confusing, so
I will try to keep it very sim-
ple. Before you even go to
the store, walk the perimeter
of your yard so you know
how many square feet you
have to feed.
Do not forget to remove
from that figure the size of
'our house and garage, out-
buildings, swing sets, etc. A
little bit of that third grade
math is needed, but armed
with the square footage of
your lawn will come in
handy very often over the

Award-winning surf films
"Get in the Van" and "All
Aboard the Crazy Train" kick
off the inigur al"'irst Coast
Surf Movie Serie' March 7 at
Atlantic Theattes.
Josh Bolton, producer of the
surf film, "Drawing Lines," and
founder of the series, coordi-
nated the showing of 16 surf
movies every Tuesday through
April 28 at 751 Atlantic Blvd.
Admission is $5 for two
movies. .Showtimes begin at
7:30 p.m.
"I'm a fan of surf movies so I
got all the movies together
that I would like to see on the
big screen." said Bolton, an
Atlantic Beach resident whose
film documents two surfers i
following the 2005 hurricane
season.
"I figured other people
would like to see them, too,
plus it's a great way to give
filmmakers more exposure."
"Get in the Van," won video
of the year for 2005 by East
Coast Surf magazine, and "All
Aboard the Crazy Train," fea-
turing tow-in surfer Laird
Hamilton, won best short film
documentary at the Maui Film
Festival.
Tom Fallon, general manager
of Atlantic Theatres, said he
had considered the idea of
running a surf series after the
success of Mitch Kaufmann's
documentary on the history of
local surfing premiered there
last fall.

Fr. Meehan celebrates



long run of priesthood


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE.
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
D during one of his long runs .through
Dublin's sprawling Phoepij Plark',.
.Father Joe Meehan stumbled orit6,fis
,t'rue calling, .' "
, Instead of pursuing, an accountingidegree
at a local college and running for Dublin's
famed Donore Harriers, Meehan would
become a man of the cloth.
, "I thought I wanted to be an accountant,"
Meehan recalled Monday at his parish office
'at St. John The Baptist Catholic Church in
Atlantic Beach.
"I was more keen on running than any-
thing else. Then one day during one of my
runs I thought, 'There has to be something
better to do with my life.' "
Meehan was 21 at the time and a member
of an amateur running club that won a
record 16 All-Ireland cross country. titles.
One of his teammates, Bertie Messit, would
go on to win a gold medal in the 1956 World
Cham piorisgbhps,.
Meehan was 'fast, too. He could crank out
5-minute miles with no problem. He once
clocked 31 minutes for a 6-mile run.
Meehan also played soccer. He knew sports
would be hard to give up if he were to
choose the priesthood.
It all worked out in the long run.


Meehan went on to,play soccer and run
cross country for the University of Fribourg
in Switzerland, where' he graduated with a
theology degree.
SSudnday marks his 40th anniversary as a
*priest. The Dublin native will'celebrate the
milestone with family and friends at the
same church where he was ordained: Our
Lady of the Angels in northern Ireland. -
Meehan left Thursday for Dublin, where
temperatures are in the single digits this
time of year.
"I've got thermal underwear in my suit-
case," he said.

Building specialist
Meehan has been the pastor at St. John's
since 1993.
Unlike many of the more than two dozen
Irish priests on the First Coast, Meehan did
not attend a seminary in Ireland and was
not specifically recruited to be a priest in
Florida.
He went to a seminary. in England- and
spent 11 years as a priest at St. Francis de
Sales Catholic Church in South London.
In 1977, he was sent to America to replace
an English priest at St. Patrick's Catholic
Church near Atlanta.

Pirates to 'sack' St. Augustine on Saturday


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
Villainous pirates will once
more hold St. Augustine in
their grip when an authentic
re-creation of one of the dark-
est days in the Oldest City's
long history takes place
Saturday.
The event begins at 9 a.m.
at the Fountain of Youth Park
and is open to the public.
Authentic 17th century
weapons, equipment and
food will be on display.
Admission to the park is $6
for adults and $3 for children.
The "Sack of St. Augustine:
Captain Robert Searle's Raid
of 1668" will provide specta-
tors with a vivid look at the
horrors inflicted on the city's
residents by marauding
pirates of the Caribbean.
Sailing from Jamaica to loot


the silver ingots stored in the
Royal Treasury in St.
Augustine, Searle and his men
descended on the sleeping
city under cover of darkness
and proceeded to sack the
town.
By morning, 60 of St.
Augustine's men, women and
children were dead in the
streets. When their looting
was complete, the pirates
selected every St. Augustinian
they considered to not be of
"pure Spanish blood" and
sailed away with them as cap-
tives to be sold into slavery.
As a result of this horrible
raid, Queen Mariana of Spain
authorized funding to build
the Castillo de San Marcos a
fortress that not only discour-
aged future pirate attacks, but
also serves today as a


reminder of St. Augustine's
long role as an important
outpost of the Spanish
Empire.
At 5 p.m., the pirates will
begin their attack on the city
by assaulting Spanish defend-
ers at the Plaza de la
Constitucion.
The re-enactment is free of
charge and spectators can
join the retreating soldiers
and townspeople as they flee
for their lives up historic St.
George Street.
For more information on
Searle's Raid, go to www.sear-
lesbuccaneers.org or call 1-
800-418-7529.
The event is funded in part
by a grant from the St. Johns
County Tourist Development
Council.


Kaufmann, director of the
Eastern Surfing Association
North Florida District, pro-
duced the documentary as part
of a fundraiser for the
Jacksonville chapter of the
Surfrider Foundation.
"We had brainstormed doing
independent films here and
when Josh came in with his
idea we said sure we'd go for
it," Fallon said.
"I know Josh is working
hard to promote it and we are
open to that kind of develop-
ment of our spaces here so the
community being able to use
them for projects of all kind."
The film lineup is as follows:
March 7: Get in the V'an,
. All Aboard the Crazy Train
a March 14: State of 5: Full
Circle, Drawing Lines
March 21: NRG Crisis,

Some Oscar nominees


yet o be screened here


very year, I'm expected to
write some sort of col-
umn about the Oscars.
And every year, I feel guilty
about it.
['ll admit, I'm not the most
"hip" movie critic. As of this
writing, I have not seen two of
the Best Picture nominees,
"Crash" and "Good Night and
Good Luck."
I'd love to be as intense a
critic as Roger Ebert, if only I
had his means. I expect I
won't make it to the Sundance
Film Festival even once in my
life, as Ebert regularly does.
And no critic I know pulls
down the six-figure salary that
Ebert commands.
Then again, it's hard to feel
too guilty about it. To name'
just two examples: "Hustle
and Flow" and
"Transamerica," which have
been nominated for Best Actor
and Actress, have not yet
made it to Jacksonville.
So I couldn't be a well-
informed critic even if I tried.
That said, here are some
random observations about
this year's Oscar nominations.
Best Picture: Due to its
combo of Steven Spielberg and
serious subject matter, I fully
expect "Munich" to win,
though I think it was wildly
overpraised. I'd be thrilled to
see either "Capote" or
"Brokeback Mountain" win.
But both prominently fea-
ture gay subject matter and
judging from some hate mail
(anonymous, of course) that I
received for praising
"Brokeback," I'm not sure that
many of the Academy's elder
voters are much more open-
minded.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
just has to win Best Actor for
"Capote." He didn't play


BAILEY
REVIEWER
Truman Capote, he inhabited
him.
Best Animated Feature:
"Howl's Moving Castle" is
another Jax no-show. Of the
other noms, "Wallace &
Gromit" and "Tim Burton's
Corpse Bride" are both
delightfully offbeat and Oscar-
worthy.
If "March of the Penguins"
doesn't get named Best
Documentary Feature, it cer-
tainly wins for Best Guilty
Pleasure. Darned, little birds.
How time flies. Remember
1977, when the original "Star
Wars" was up for Best Picture
but Woody Allen's "Annie
Hall" won?
This year, the final "Star
Wars" entry got nominated
only for Best Make-Up,
though I'd venture that it was
far more engrossing than
other nominated movies,
including Allen's "Match
Point" (up for Best
Screenplay).
"War of the Worlds" and
"King Kong" got only some
technical nominations.
I guess, as the great Pauline
Kael once said, there is a sepa-
rate god for the movies after
all.

Matheson: First course is fertilizing


Cont. from B-I
course of a year. Once done,
lock the number in.
Then, again keeping it very
simple, buy your fertilizer.
This can be a challenge, espe-
cially if you get into a compli-
cated conversation with a
salesperson who might give
you much more information
than you need to know. We
are not worrying about bugs,
weeds, or anything else except
food for the lawn right now.
So, look for a bag that has
three numbers on it that are
something like 15-0-15, 20-5-
10, 16-4-8, and that has the
number of square feet you
have to feed.
Yes, you may need to buy
several bags to get the total
amount of square footage cov-
ered, but so it goes.
Try not to buy the least
expensive nor the most
expensive; suffice it to say
that either one will have some
components that you either
do not need right now or that
are detrimental to the initial
feeding of the lawn.
Again, keep it simple and it
will not overwhelm you. If
you know what you need,
that chatty salesperson will
not be able to confuse you
either.
You will need something to
spread this food with, so if
you have to buy.or rent a
spreader, now is the time.


Luckily, they are not terribly
expensive, and if I had a
choice, I'd buy the rotary
kind, simply because it holds
more fertilizer at a time and it
seems to spread more evenly
for fertilizer/spreader-chal-
lenged people like me.
Meaning, I don't have to be
a fanatic about exactly where
the wheel marks are from the
last path I made. Ever have a
striped lawn. Some lines are
lighter in color than others?
That's when you got distract-
ed and lost track of your last
pass-through; a rotary spread-
er leaves more room for error.
So home you go, all proud
and pleased as punch that you
have passed the first course in
lawn fertilizing. Almost.
Before you start the walk, it
helps, but is not absolutely
critical, to pull out any of
those obvious green weeds.
Why feed those guys when
we want them gone? The
same is true if you are pretty
sure there are some dead areas
in the lawn; pull them out so
as the food reaches the
healthy spots, it can feed and
encourage new roots to devel-
op and grass blades will fill in
the empty spaces. Make
sense?
Next, check your fertilizer
bag and see if the instructions
tell you to water the lawn
before or after spreading the
product.

Knotts, McGavin enter sitcom immortality


L ast week saw the deaths
of two revered actors
whose most famous
roles saw each of them carry-
ing a single bullet (silver, in
one instance) for their pro-
tection.
Darren McGavin, who died
last Saturday at age 83, saw
his career span from TV's
early days (playing private
eve Mike Hammer) through
the 1990's (when he won an
-Littu ydora-g-est. pcLas .. -"..
-Candace Bergen's dad on
"Murphy Brown").
But he will probably be
remembered most for two w
endearing roles.
kids of all ages enjoyed NI
McGavin in "A Christmas La
Story" (1983) as the embar- K
rassing father Ihe favored h
lamps shaped like women's d(
legs) who nevertheless had (1
enough sense not to buy a tI
beloved BB gun as a li
Christmas gift for his son tc
S Peter Billingsley) because it
"you could put an eye out" si

ith it.
But TV horror fans revere
lcGavin's portrayal of jaded
as Vegas reporter Carl
olchak, who suddenly finds
e has a vampire to hunt
own in "The Night Stalker"
1973), a famed TV-movie
hat spun off into a short-
ved TV series and continues
Inspire (Chris Carter cited
as a creative source for his
how "The X-Files").


Don Knotts, who died last
Friday at age 81, also had a
long career in TV and
movies.
His first claim to fame was
as a nerve-racked man-on-
the-street being interviewed
by Steve Allen in the first era
of "The Tonight Show" in
the 1950s. At the far end of
his TV career was his '80s
turn as would-be ladies, man
Ralph Furley on "Three's
i._Company." -._--" -1
. -But his most famous role.
was well-meaning but inept
Mayberry deputy Barney Fife
on "The Andy Griffith
Show," for which he won
five Emmys.
He parlayed his five years
as Fife into a movie career
playing equally well-mean-
ing saps, such as "The
Incredible Mr. Limpet"
which used animation to
change him from a milque-
toast man to a talking fish).
His twitchy persona often
belied a sly wit, seen to best


advantage on game shows.
On "The Hollywood
Squares," he once was asked,
"You have a great deal of
trouble sleeping at night. Are
you a man or a woman?"
Knotts replied, "That's what's
keeping me awake!"
Knotts, final movie turn in
"Pleasantville" (1998) was an
eerily appropriate role, as a
mysterious TV repairman
who sends two teenagers to
:liv:e'their lives in an-oldj 'uj
*black-and-white sitcom. '.-
TV nostalgia and history
have similarly placed Knotts
in sitcom immortality.

'Shadow and Light at Bethel


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Photographs from as far
away as Russia and Africa are
featured in a new photogra-
phy show called "Shadow and
Light" at Bethel Gallery in
Ponte Vedra Presbyterian
Church.
The exhibit features .the
work of photographer and'
instructor Pam Casey as well
as the work of five of her stu-
dents. The show will be open
until March 19.
Casey began her journey as
a photographer with an inex-
pensive camera ordered for
her by her grandmother.
S"I loved taking pictures
since.I got my first camera',
from the back of a cereal box
.at the age of 8," said Casey.
"What I find most challeng-
ing and fascinating is being
able to interpret scripture
through my camera. It is a
way of reflecting God's cre-
ation, glory, and love to oth-
': ers."
Casey's photographs from
an Evangelism Explosion (EE)
Mission Trip to Russia are part
of the exhibit.
While attending the 10th
annual Len Ministries Dinner
in Jacksonville with her hus-
band Terry last spring, Casey
learned about an EE mission
trip to Russia planned for
summer 2005.
"I turned to my husband
and said, 'Wouldn't it be neat
to go and take pictures?' All of
a sudden I was on my way to
Russia," Casey said.
After quickly preparing for
the trip and being trained in
EE techniques, Casey and the
rest of the group traveled to
Nizhny Novgorod in central
Russia.
Casey said that she found


the Russian people warm and
friendly.
"Because you're American,
they're interested in talking
with you," she said,
With the. help of a transla-
tor, Casey was prepared to use
her EE training and speak with
people on the street or at
churches, there.
"This is, a fantastic method
of evangelization.",
Although most, people iden-
tified themselves as Russian
Orthodox in faith, they usual-
ly indicated that they did not
attend church, she said.
EE volunteers are trained to
respond b'y introducing the
idea of making a commitment
to Christ and becoming active
in a church community.
"Some of the people we
spoke with were ready to
make a commitment," she
said. If people were resistant,
"we were not pushy and
stopped."
.The group also brought
hats, scarves and quilts to
children in orphanages and
distributed Bibles with
Russian and English transla-
tions.
"I expected everything to be
poor and bleak," she said, "but
it was not quite like that."
Casey was drawn to photo-
graph many of the people she
encountered in Russia. These
informal portraits along with
several of her photographs of
Russian scenes, are on display
in "Shadow and Light."
Also in the exhibit are her
students' photographs of
Africa, other foreign foreign
countries, local scenes, nature
and a study of night photogra-
phy.
Students with photographs
.in the exhibit are Hazel
Dalton, Mathew Jones, Lynn

Meehan: Runner-priest


Count. from B-1
Parishioners at St. Patrick's
recommended Meehan to the
Diocese of St. Augustine ,in
1982.
He spent a few years at St.
Catherine's in Orange Park.
and an eight-year stint at a
Catholic parish in High
Springs before coming to
Atlantic Beach.
Along the way, Meehan
found out that his back-
ground in accounting came
in handy.
Meehan has guided build-
ing projects at four of the five
churches he has served since
1966.
He led a $1.3-million build-
ing project in '1980 at' St.
Patrick's in Norcross, Ga.,
and a $1.4-million renova.-
tion last year at St. John's.'
A numbers man, Meehan
also led the High Springs
parish out of its financial
troubles.
"Basically, what the Bishop,
told me was to go down there
and fix that problem,"
recalled Meehan.
"I can build and pay for,
buildings. I did that in
London and Atlanta. The
church in Norcross went
from a wooden one to a very
modern, innovative building.
When I went to London, I
walked into a place that had
just been built. That got me
interested in the mechanics
of it.
"I knew when I came to St.
John's that it needed major
renovations. Everybody
could see that we needed a
major renovation of the
inside."
A student 'of church archi-
tecture, Meehan wanted an
antiphonal or lateral form to
the new layout, one that
allowed the congregation to
sit close to the focal points of
the liturgy.
A new altar was cut from
7,000 pounds of Indiana
limestone. Pews now face the
altar on either side. The altar,
a sunken baptistry and a pul-
pit are placed on a central
axis.
"The layout of a church
always has to have a symbol-
ic meaning. as well as a prac-
tical side," said Meehan, who
hired an Ohio sculptor to
design the altar, a Chicago
sculptor to make a life-size
figure of the Virgin Mary in
linden wood and an Irish
blacksmith to make candle-
stcks.-- ._-


Runner-turned-priest
When Meehan was growing
up in Dublin, he said, the
city was teeming with semi-
naries and running clubs.
He fondly recalls running
in only a singlet, shorts and
shoes during the winter.
Dublin's Phoenix Park, one of
the world's largest urban
parks at 1,700 acres, is where
he did most of his training
runs.
"It was a great time in
Ireland," said Meehan, who
was ordained a priest at age
28 on March 5, 1966.
"All the seminaries were
full. There used to 'be a semi-
nary in Dublin [All-Hallows]
that, specialized in training
Irish priests for America. All
its graduating classes went
overseas. There were 1,200
Irish men ordained [in 1966].
That's an extraordinary fig-
ure for a' small country.
"It's more materialistic now
in-Ireland. It used to be more
spiritual. And it's not just a
question of the priesthood.
We used to export priests,
nurses, police officers and
school teachers. The Irish
have lost their attraction for
public service."
Meehan was ordained by.
the 'Archbishop of Dublin
and the event was chronicled
in Dublin's Evening Herald
under the headline, "Runner
turns priest."
Meehan, 68, was still run-
ning at tlhe time, but not
competitively. He is the only
one in his family to become a
priest and the only one living
in America.
"I wasn't thinking of
America at all when I started
out," said Meehan, who
entered the seminary in the
late. 1950s.
"I thought I would end up
in Brazil. I had an interest in
going to South America
because the need was bigger
there.
"I had remembered Pope
Pius XII saying that he need-
ed 60,000 priests for South
America. That kind of stuck
with me. I said, 'OK. I'd be
willing to do that.' "
Four decades later, Meehan
jokes that Jacksonville is as
far south as he got.
And he's no longer the run-
ner-priest.
"I just walk on the beach,"
said Meehan, who once spe-
cialized in 9-mile races.
"But I never walk less than
4 to 5 miles." 'i... I ,

Invisalignr'; is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of
custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven
effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So
whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted
since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.-
