Atlantic Boulevard's status as a failng road-
way was the trump card for the Neptune
Beach City Council's denial of a proposed
VWal-lMart Ntonday, but the failing grade could
also prove to be a roadblock for future "new"
commercial development along the corridor,
City officials contend that the road is
P. -already over capacity and that the anticipated
added traffic generated by.the proposed
117,000-square-foot 24-hour supercenter at
630 Atlantic Boulevard would have pushed
the roadway further over its limits. The project
was denied 4-1 by the council at its meeting.
Wal-Mart intended to tear down the exist-
ing 150,000-square-foot parcel to build a new
structure. But that triggered a requirement in
the city's code that the business must comply
with traffic concurrency.
An attorney for WVal-Mart Monday ques-
tioned whether any new business could be
approved along Atlantic Boulevard, given the
road's failing status and the city's require-
,ments for traffic concurrency.
"Can you explain to me how you can
approve any new development in Neptune
Beach?" attorney Karl Sanders asked Neptune
1 .-0 . Beach City Manager Jim Jarboe at the meet-
Jarboe responded "right now you can't."
And City Councilor Eric Pardee, who voted
against denying the project, said that's a prob-
.,.A lem for the city.
S"What we're deciding here tonight is going
to affect every property along Atlantic
Boulevard ... and we're not going to be able to
do anything along that road," Pardee said.
S"WVe need to really realize what we're getting
into when we're doing this."

Residents along a portion of 20th Street North
in Jacksonville Beach will be assessed to pave the
gravel roadway, despite objections that it was
intentionally excluded from a past dust control
The City Council approved an ordinance

exempt from the assessment because the homes
front an area of 9th Street North that was part of
a dust control paying effort and those owners
have already paid for that work.
City Councilor Linda Spence said it would be
unfair to charge the property owners again
because they would reap "no major benefit"
from the 20th Street work.
Attorney Paul Eakin, representing the group of
property owners opposing the paving, said his
clients wviU not benefit either.

"There is nothing in our
work program that indicates
we are going to add capacity to
that , strip of Atlantic
Boulevard," Goldman said in a
Goldman said that widening
the road would be the obvious
improvement if anything were
to be done in the future.
"It would be expensive in
that you would have to buy
private property," /he said of
the widening, adding that
property at the Beaches is very
"You'd have to take some
pretty expensive property, or
take up some of the landscaped
median and that's an emotion-
al issue." : ,
He said that any recommen-
dations for improvement on
the road would have to come
from the Jacksonville
SMetropolitan ' Planning
When asked, Goldman said
that the IDOT does not get
involved in issues between
businesses and municipalities
over concurrency along its
"That's more-a local govern-
ment type issue," he said,
adding that the FDOT would
only get involved with a devel-
opment project along its roads
when the business applies for a
permit to insure proper access
from the roadway exists.
Jarboe said Thursday that it
is unlikely that the FDOT will
do anything to the road in the
near future. But he said the city
could opt to amend its State
Comp Plan, changing the level
of service required on the road-
way. He said the state may,
however, be hesitant to allow
the city to do so given that the
city is located on a barrier
island where emergency evacu-
ation becomes an issue.
Jarboe pointed out Thursday
that new businesses would be
allowed to open along the road
as long as they operated within
an existing structure.
But Pardee says that the city
can't continue to ask business-
es to use the existing commer-
cial structures in the city fore\v-
I'People have a right to build
on their property and as all our

evening. "... so be careful how

"We would appreciate a differ-
ent direction," he said. "Leave
the street the way it is with the
city maintaining it."
Eakin contends that it is the
residents, not the cty, that has
kept up the roadway and fol-
Slowed the directions of the city
by placing the type of rock spec-
ified by the Public Works
If the city elects to go forward
with the paving, Eakin asked the
council to "do so at your own
expense" using monies in the,
general fund rather than charg-
ing the property owners.
"This is a city obligation," he
said. "The city is obligated to
pave the streets. If there were
something special about it then
under state statute you would
have the right to do what you
are doing. But you don't."
Eakin said he would consider
a reduced charge of $7.61 per
Slineal foot which is the amount
that was applied to property
owners during .the 1992 dust
control project along 19th
"The bottom line is that if you
are going to assess anything that
is the only amount that would
be acceptable," he said.
Alan Hall, who owns three
lots on 20th Street North, said
he would be willing to absorb
the costs associated with the
paving because the added infra-
structure will support the devel-
opment of his property.
'City planners two years ago
denied Hall's application for a
building permit because the
roadway was not up to the cur-
"I've been waiting for over
two years, for this road to be
paved. I am hopeful that all of
the studies and research on this
little section of road are finally
done and we can see this section
brought up to code at last."
Hall said the question still
remains as to "why this section
was not brought up to code
when every other street was
when the paving or dust control
was going on?"
"No one to my satisfaction
has never answer that ques-
tion," he said. "It seems to me
that somebody didn't want it
paved so it didn't get paved."

Last night a bit of my hope

belief that America is the land
where the majority still rules.
When did this change? Is this
the sign of the times? Are the

complacent that they do rot.

Or is the reason for this com-
placency a realization that
even if counted, the- count
does not count. How sad is
this? Are we Americans just
going to stand by and let a few
people rule? Even our rulers are
voted in by a skimpy amount
'of registered others . If this
wave of complacency contin-
ues to rise, democracy in
America will drown,. and the.
unspeakable will happen, and
we will slowly lose the free-

To the editor:
While [the mayor] so
notably spoke ' during
Monday's night's meeting,
comparing Beverly Hills "FAR"
.with Atlantic Beach's FAR, it
struck me that the Beverly
Hillbillies won't be coming to
town to build a "McMansion.
That's right, Mr. Mayor, Jed
and family will not be joining
us folks here in'Atlantic Beach
as they already have their
own "FAR" issues to deal with.
I admit it, Mr. Mayor, that
for, one very hopeful second, I
really believed that you were
killingg to 'compromise" by-
increasing FAR from .54 to
.60. That hopeful second
came as you'..compared 4
homes on Ocean Blvd. using
FAR .54. These homes are
part of "Old Atlantic Beach",
you know the part of Atlantic
Beach that needs rescuing
from the evil
You deftly attenipted to
point out that FAR .54 was
too restrictive (as it relates, to
home sizes) vs. your proposed
amendment to change to FAR,
.60. To backup your conclu-
sion, you showed that 3 out
of 4 of these same homes
would NEVER have been built
.using FAR .54. Can we take
this to mean, Mr. Mayor,
using your own example, that
if you and the present board
of commissioners had been in
office at the' time, these very
homes that you are trying to
protect by this ordinance
would have never even exist-
Alluding back to that hope-
ful second that I mentioned
in a earlier part of this letter,
it dawned on me that maybe
our Atlantic Beach mayor was
putting aside his own person-
al, agenda and willing to com-
promise. I have to tell you
that my heart skipped a beat
and my faith was restored in
believing that the "gods of
Atlantic Beach must be alive
and well", and, further declar-?
ing to myself that "the' goV-t
ernmental process really does'
work!" But, sadly, my enthu-
siasm was quickly dampened.'
It became all too clear for
anyone possessing a couple of
brain cells, that this last
minute "attempt" at compro-
mise was no more'than a way.
to "go' on record" forigarner-
ing future votes come re-elec-
tion. By this "slight of hand
move", 'you now have the
ability to tell your voters that
you really, really, really tried
to reach a compromise.
I have to say that. it was a
pretty good magic trick, but
only for a moment. When the
rest of the commission didn't
vote to accept your proposed
amendment (oh gee, don't
you hate surprises like that?),
your response was to instant-
ly vote with the majority for
passage of this ordinance.
What gives me pause , iMr.
Mayor, is that I thought you
didn't believe in the majority
vote as it is counterproduc-
tive to your mission and phi-
losophy to protect the minor-
ity. Now let me get this

nance so he would be consid-
ered the minority, you, how-
ever, voted with the majori-

'"mission" to' protect the
minority must not apply in
- this case?
So why at the last minute
this attempt to compromise?
Should we assume that you
already knew that the majori-
ty of the commissioners
would. vote "against this
amendment? But, heck, just
for fun, let's give you the ben-
efit of the doubt, Mr. Mayor.

And because Atlantic Beach

civility, and the expectation of

At this meeting, a final vote
on the Ordinance was sched-
uled. Even though many pro-
ponents spoke during the open
discussion, quite a few dis-
senters claimed to be the
"majority." They provided
"proof" of their majority status
with examples that were unof-
ficial, false, and misleading,
.e.g. the "Straw Ballot." Loud
arid: disruptive heckling
occurred at almost every
instance in which anyone
spoke well of the Ordinance.
Some angered opponents who

and our City Manager! Some
maliciously threatened the

retaliation if the Ordinance
was passed. : ,
After the public "discus-

leave for home.. Instead, I
decided to continue to show
support for those who .were

how they voted. I stayed close
to--yet outside--the chambers

were words I will not repeat.

Moriday concerning the Wal-
Mart issue. I left in complete
shock at the behavior I saw. I
saw grown people, whom I am
supposed to respect and look
up to, being extremely rude to
one another. While people
were speaking at the podium,
some in the audience were

body. It got me wondering as
to how I am to respect my eld-
ers when they do not even
respect each other. Aren't they
supposed to be role models for
people my age? Now a lot was
said at that meeting that I
myself do not agree with, but I
would never even think to act
that way toward another per-
son trying to speak. I was
brought up to believe that
everyone has a right to say
their opinion no matter how
stupid you might think it is.

The Department of Business and Professional
Regulation (DBPR) is seeking public comment
regarding several condominium and homeown-
er association issues.
Earlier this year Governor Jeb Bush vetoed
both Senate Bill 1556 and House Bill 391, direct-
ing DBPR to gather citizen input and generate a
report regarding issues contained in both pieces
of legislation. The reports are due to the gover-
nor and Florida Legislature no later than Oct. 1.
The deadline for public submissions to DBPR is
today, Sept. 15. .
"DBPR wants to hear from you: Florida's
homeowners, condominium owners and com-
munity association members," said Secretary
Simone Marstiller. "This is your chance to pio-,
vide input on a matter that directly affects your
quality of life - your ability to live and enjoy
your home in peace. I strongly encourage you
to'take advantage of this opportunity and con-
tribute your invaluable insight." The language
contained in Senate Bill 1556 would have
amended current law. Currently, condomini-
ums can be terminated only with 100 percent
consent by unit owners, unless the declaration
provides otherwise, and unit owners can peti-
tion for court relief, including termination,in
the event of substantial damage or destruction
to the property.
Senate Bill 1556 reduced the consent require-
ment to 80 percent, unless the declaration
allows otherwise, and provided for termination
on the additional grounds of economic waste or
impossibility by majority vote. In his veto let-
ter, Governor Bush had expressed concern that.
A three-year marketing campaign helped keep
Florida's, shrimp industry viable, in the face of
unrelenting competition from foreign coun-
tries, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson said.
The "Wild and Wonderful Florida Shrimp"
promotion, conducted by the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services from 2004 to 2006, was instrumental in
the sale of 2.7 million pounds of Florida wild-
caught shrimp by participating retail stores.
'Some stores reported sales increases as high as
2,000 percent over the same periods in prior
"Florida's shrimp industry has faced an
onslaught of competition from foreign coun-
tries that have exported more than a billion
pounds of shrimp into the U.S. market in the
past few years," Bronson said in a press release.
"Many of our state's shrimpers have been forced
out of business altogether, and the remaining
ones have experienced very difficult times. This
marketing campaign was crucial in helping keep
Florida's shrimp industry alive."
According to the National Marine Fisheries
Service, foreign countries have captured 88 per-
cent of the total U.S. market. Vietnam, China,
India and Brazil have increased exports to the
United States .i' recent years. An estimated
'200,000 U.S. jobs have been lost.
The state and federally funded campaign
focused on raising consumer awareness about
the. benefits of buying Florida wild-caught
shrimp and highlighted the Florida shrimp

The vacant secretary position in the Atlantic
Beach City Clerk's Office received an upgrade in n
title and pay recently at the request of the'city,
clerk, who wanted to bring the job "up to par"
with what's actually required of the employee.
The. City Commission unanimously
approved raising the position to an
Administrative Assistant to the City Clerk,
which comes with a higher grade on the city's
pay plan - a grade 17 up from a grade 15.
The hourly wage of a grade, 15 employee
ranges from $11.47 [$23,858 annually] to
$17.20 [$35,776 annually] versus that of a grade
17, with a range from $13.61 [$28,309 annual-
ly] to $20.42 [$42,274 annually], according to
City Clerk Donna Bussey.
The commission at its meeting also created a
Deputy City Clerk position to which the
administrative assistant will be promoted to

process, said Bussey. And the deputy clerk title.
carries with it a pay grade of 18. with a hourly
wage range from $14.85 [30,888 annually].to
$22.27 [$46,322 annually].
The former secretary position has been
vacant since June 6, said Bussey, adding that
while evaluating the job description to adver-
tise for a new employee, she realized the job
description was "outdated."
the legislation went too far and could have
resulted in unintended consequences depriving
unit owners of their property rights.
House Bill 391 substantially removed lan-
guage adopted by the Legislature, in 2004 that
requires alternative dispute resolution, before a
lawsuit is filed, to resolve disputes that fre-
quently arise'between homeowners and associa-
tions. Governor Bush directed the department
to seek public input specifically on the follow-
* Ways to improve or expand existing alter-
native dispute resolution and educational pro-
* The extent to which protections afforded
members of mandatory homeowner associa-
tions can approach parity with those afforded
condominium owners while still upholding leg-

"Recognizing first responders in the com-

military personnel, and police officers in uni-
form," said Walker.
Pastor Tom Bary, pastor of Neptune Baptist,
preached at the services. He also led a panel
discussion with three first responders who are
also members of the congregation.
Bary's sermon topic was "Living like there's
no tomorrow," said Walker.
The topic was especially appropriate to
honor those who "live and work in harms way
every day," "' said Walker.
Patrolman Gene McDonald from the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office;' Captain, Ryan
McAvoy from the Jacksonville Beach Fire and
Rescue Department; and Lt. Jeffrey Morris, a
U.S. Navy helicopter pilot stationed at
Mayport, participated in the panel discussion.

"A video with patriotic images was shown
during the senices," he said.
"After this the congregation was asked to
stand and show their appreciation for what
they (the first-responders) do every day."

Derailed from their undefeat-
ed, season by a loss at Gaines-
ville Buchholz oh Tuesday, the
Fletcher, volleyball team got
right back on track Wednesday
with a 3-1 \ictory over Bartram
Far from being demoralized
after falling for the first time in
eight games, Senators head
coach Shanel Lopez said players
were encouraged by their show-
ing against the Bobcats.
"Even though we lost, we still
played outstanding for our
team," said Lopez. "It was the
best I've seen this team play
together. They were awesome
with their intensity and enthu-
,siasm. They were communicat-
ing. Sometimes we had little
runs of shaky serves but other
than that [we] played outstand-
ing. We were scrappy."
That scrappiness came in
handy Wednesday against the
Bears. Trailing 18-9 in the
fourth and deciding game and
unable to cope with the Bears'
topspin serves, Lopez called a
timeout and calmly read players
the riot act.
"I basically let them know
that this is a varsity team and
they're playing at the varsity
level and [at that point] they
weren't," the coach explained.
"And all of the fundamentals,
all of their skills, all of their
common sense somehow was
lost. I told them whatever they
had to do to get it back, they
better - or else."
The Senators emerged from
that timeout a new team, going
Son a nine-point run that includ-
ed a pair of aces and seven other
points on Kristen LaCoste's
serve to draw even at 18-all.
After exchanging :side-outs,
Fletcher won the final' four
points to secure a 25-22, 23-25,
26-24 and 25-21 win.
LaCoste's service points were
key to the fourth game victory,
ironic because that portion of

working on her serve and we're
working on, changing some
things," Lopez said. "I know
that she's been down a little bit
on her serve and so just to see
her really prevail in the end and
have that consistency was good.
That's what we look for in a sen-
ior captain - that ability to step
it up and bite the bullet for the
Kelsey Davis and June
SNardiello led Fletcher with 11
kills, each. Michelle Martin
chipped in with eight kills and
LaCoste had seven.
Kelli Thurson had a game-
high 38 assists and Davis led all
Senators with 11 service points.
Against Buchholz, 'the
Senators (8-1) put up a good.
battle for three games before-
succumbing in the fourth.
"I think ,we went into that
game ready to win," Lopez said.
"I don't think players went into
it with the notion, 'Well, we'll
play as hard as we can.'
"They were ready to show
Buchholz, 'Look, we're a team,
that can hang with you and a
team that can really put it
down.' And I think we did."

"When they do something
wrong in practice their Immedi-

describing Senators players'
"That's the same mentality we
have as a team. If, we lose a
game, we can't wait for the next
one to start so we get a chance
to get right back at.it."

'Retro hits the running circuit
with upcoming Retro River Run
A according to the Oxford
dictionary the word
retro means: reviving or
harking back to the past. We
see a lot of retro these days -
in fashion, music, and design.
Now, you might say, we have
"retro road racing."
Yes folks, on the anniversary
of the 30th River Run, we
have a real birthday surprise,
the Retro River Run.
The organizers of the race,
the Jacksonville Track Club,
want to give next year's race a
Hollywood-style hype fest and
make it a race to remember.
There will be special festivities
going on all week long build-
ing up to the great moment-
the Gate River Run on March
But first, a moment of
reflection: The year was 1977
and a few members of the
Track Club created the germ of
an idea that would grow to
become the River Run 15,000
(a name that would last for
several years until the Gate
Petroleum Company became
the title sponsor). The great
new race was set for March
That's the year that Israel
and Egypt signed the Camp
David Peace Treaty. Jimmy
Carter was president. A mass
murder/suicide took place in
Guyana, Africa engineered by
cult leader Jim Jones. Keith
Moon, drummer of the rock
band, The Who, died.
Jamaican Reggae artist, Bob
Marley, orchestrated the "One
Love Peace Concert," uniting
two opposing political leaders
in Kingston. Israeli forces
invaded Lebanon in Operation
Litani. "Charon," a moon of
Pluto, was discovered. Now,
sadly, Pluto is not even con-
sidered a planet and who
knows what ever happened to
Volunteer race director, JITC
Board Member Buck Fannin,
aided byifellow board mem-
bers Jay Birmingham, George
Burns and his son, Richard
Fannin, mapped out the
race's course which they
determined should showcase
as much of Jacksonville as
It would start and finish
downtown in front of the
Daniel Building, along the
north bank of the mighty St.
Johns River. Then it.would
pass through downtown-
before crossing the river using
the Main Street Bridge.
Runners would then enjoy
a few miles beautiful historic
scenery as they journeyed
through old San Marco and
St. Nicholas. But the course
was not designed to be a
cakewalk. Toward the end of
the race a giant challenge
loomed over the runners in
the form of the Hart Bridge.
The four pioneers of that
first race had just run the
New York Marathon together
and they were awestruck.
They wanted to bring a simi-
lar experience to Jacksonville.
They figured: New York has
bridges; we have bridges, New
York has distinctive neighbor-
hoods and so do we. If New
York can have a grand scale
race then so can Jacksonville.
That first River Run took
place on a hellishly hot late
morning In March 1978. Even
so, 2,204 runners finished the
Now, another 2,204 runners
can enjoy the excitement of
finishing the nearest best
thing to that 1978 River Run:
the Retro River Run set to
take place on March 3, 2007.
The Retro is a 5K that will
start at the River Run runner
statue on Coast Line Drive at
virtually the same spot where
the first River Run began. The
(abbreviated) course will tra-
verse the Main St. and Acosta
Bridges (not quite the same
but nevertheless you cross the
river twice on two different
bridges) and will finish on
Coast Line Drive near the
original finish line.
Here is a real retro joy: The
race entry fee is genuine
1978, $3 early, $5 day-of-race.
Included is a.t-shirt with the
original foot-over-water River
Run 15,000 logo.
"It's a fun-run designed to
kick off the special 30th year
celebration of the race," said
JTC official, John TenBroeck.
He continued: "There will
be no official results and only
2,204 people will be allowed
in the race. Because that is
how many finished it in 1978.
All of the SIreakers (those
who have run all 29 River
Runsi are invited to run it and
they will start up front."
In addition to the Retro
race the Gate River Run com-
mittee is going all out to
make this the most fantastic,
memorable River Run to date.
TenBroeck said: "We will have
more national publicity than
ever in the hope of having a
bigger race than (New York's)
Boilermaker 15K, which had
500 or so more runners than
us last year. We plan to spend
over $5,000 to make the
world's biggest cake."
A five thousand dollar
cake? Yes, and he's serious.
The post-race cake will not
only feed the multitude.but is
intended to be a Guinness
Book of World Records con-
tender. There go the diets of
more than 9,000 people.
Retro apparently is in and
already the Retro River Run is
nearly filled to capacity. To

F orget "Superman
Returns." For intelligent
"Hollywoodland" is the
Superman movie to see this
And it probably has more
subtext than even the film-
makers intended. .
The true-life story con-
cerns George Reeves', an
actor made both famous and
typecast by his starring role
in the 1950's "Superman" TV
Reeves is played by Ben
Affleck, and you can't help
noticing that, like Reeves,
Affleck shot to fame and
then coasted through some
At this point, Affleck is
probably as eager for "legiti-
mac"" as Reeves was, and it
revs him to perfect pitch
In 1959, a gunshot' wound
to Reeves' head killed him.
The LAPD concluded that
Sthe shooting was a suicide,
but holes in the case hae
intrigued Hollywood buffs
ever since,,and the movie
exploits them all.
Bystanders with possible
motives for. killing Reeves
included Toni Mannix
(Diane Lane), Reeves' mis-
tress and the wife of power-
ful land vengeful) MfGMN
executive Eddie NMannix (Bob
Another suspect was
Reeves' put-upon fiancee
Leonore Lemmon (Robin
Reeves" story is intermin-
gled with that of Louis Simo
(Adrien Brodyv, alow-renjt
detective who smells instant
fame with the Reeves story
and pursues it with reckless
Simo is a fictional cre-
atiori and critics have taken
the movie to task for giving
this made-up character as
much screen time as the
"true" story. But the subplot
was handled so gracefully
that I didn't have a problem.
Simo is what Joe Average
would be like if he started
investigating a juicy
Hollywood story-and then
realized he was in over his
head. . :
What did trouble me was-
.,the tiovie's f uEzitessb~ni cer-
citain'plot points.: ,r;k:i.: :.I
Initially, the movie makes
it looks as though the
Reeves/Mafn ix events take
place shortly before Simo
enters the story, when in fact
their story begins about 10
years before Reeves' death.
'Another example is the
movie's depiction of an
apocryphal Reeves stor y
Legend has it that Reeves
' was once confronted by a.
child who wanted to shoot
real bullets at Reeves to see if
they'd bounce off
In the movie version, we
'have to sort of take it on
faith that a real gun is being
pointed at Reeves; the movie
doesn't take any great pains
Wicker: Few humorous moments
Cont. from B-t
worth seeing on the big
screen. Subplots that seem to
go nowhere (such as the dis-
appearance of the bodies
from the opening car crash),
improbable contrivances (a
California cop threatening to
arrest or shoot people out-
side his jurisdiction) and
obnoxious characters (I'd be
tempted to shoot most of
the island's residents myself)
add up to a thriller without
thrills and a mystery that's
more of a misery to the.
There are a few mildly
humorous moments (proba-
bly unintentional), such as
the sight of'Nicolas Cage in
a bear costume and his: short
fight with a grossly under-
used Leelee Sobieski. The
moments are too few, how-
ever, to liven up the dismal
and uneven pacing.

Around the Home
Turn digital photos into artwork
R eal artwork is a luxury.
Truly fine art is also an
investment that can
increase in value over time.
The problem with this kind of
artwork is the price is often
out of reach of the average
homeowner. And, if you're
like me, I'd rather have bare
walls than a cheesy-looking
print. However, if you long for
some truly beautiful art and
you have'a camera and a dis-
cerning eye, you can create
your own artwork that's cus-
tom, original - and at a frac-
tion of the cost of fine art-
While staying at a hotel in
Austin recently, I noticed the
hotel had beautiful profession-
al photographs displayed in
the public areas rather than
generic prints that match the
colors of the hotel sofas. It
made the hotel in sync with
the local area,.showed some of
the beautiful area highlights
to hotel guests, and capital-
ized on the local beauty. This
simple idea can be easily
translated to your own home.
Many homes feature art-
work of subjects and areas
that may have no relationship
to where the occupants live or
their lives. Putting your own
photographs in your home as
artwork is a wonderful way to
display you or your family
members' photographic tal-
ents and use your own home
as a canvas of your life.
You can't get more personal-
ly-relevant than that - and
that makes this kind of art-
work so much more meaning-
ful than any off the rack
Go for size
When it comes to artwork,
size says a lot. The problem is
that you can't usually get
enlarged photographs fiomn
your local photo processing
center larger than 8x10 This
is the beauty of the Internet.
There are many services
available there that will take
your photographs and enlarge
them to poster-sized (24.x36i
prints or larger. So, if you
want to make a statement
with your photos, get them
enlarged to art-work size, have
them matted, and then
franed.Once you have your
photograph matted, go a step
further and sign the bottom
right-hand corner in pencil
with your signature. These
extra steps put a standard
photo into a whole new cate-
gory: the category of art.
From photo to painting
If you want to go the next
step, consider using a service
that transfers your photo-
graph onto an artist's canvas.
This is another technique that
takes your ordinary photo-
graphs to a whole new level.
Another especially beautiful
choice is the oil painting
treatment. The cra-pro.corn
website will take your photo-
graph and make it look like an
original oil painting. It will
even change the background
to make it look like an old
master painting if that's what
you like. Any photos can be
used, trom kids or wedding
photos to antique photos of
The cra-pro.com website
features brides that look like
they've been inserted into an
old Italian master painting
with cherubs and angels lying
around the bride. What a
beautiful treatment this could
be foi precious photos of
babies and children. And if
you have a photograph that
you love but wish a certain
someone weren't in the pic-
tuie, this service will remove
the offending person from
If you're ready for meaning-
tul artwork that's custom and
original or you're tired of see-
ing the same prints in your
friend's houses that you have
in your own, get out your
camera and make your own
artwork. In a.weekend, you
can have your own fine art.
Make your living space origi-
nal with original art that you
make with your own hands.
Email questions to kathryn-
Don't live with bare walls any longer. With a digital or film camera, you can shoot your own pic-
tures to turn into artwork in a weekend.
