for 24/7 ALS
The Jacksonville Beach Fire
Department is moving ahead
with plans to provide advanced
life support services to the city.
Three firefighters will undergo
specialized training to provide the
advanced rescue care. The cost of
the 10-month training program is
$24,000, which covers both train-
ing and the overtime required to
cover for the crew-training.
The City Council Monday
approved the funding for the
course at First Coast Technical
Institute in St. Johns County. ALS

medication that other cannot
Mayor Fland Sharp likened the
extensive training course tp
"going back to college."
"For those of you who don't
know, it's really hard," Sharp said,
Chief Gary Frazier said the
department currently has four
trained paramedics in the combat
division. He said the additional
personnel will help the depart-
ment maintain a "24/7" service

Director Steve Lindorff said the goal is
to improve conditions and encourage
private investment in redevelopment
in the area.
"I don't think that there is any
question that this will be an enhance-
ment that will add to our downtown
area and assist us in continuing with
the successful redevelopment of it,"
The program will include two full
time officers who will patrol the area
using different modes of transporta-
tion including the Segway people

Surveys will be conducted of the
business owners in the area to identi-
fy any concerns and to determine the
impact on crime in the area.
"You are above the crowd when
you are riding," Corbitt said. "It really
puts your appearance out there when
you are riding in uniform."
Segiways travel on two wheels with
an eight-inch platform where the
rider stands. They can reach up to 12
mph and will also be equipped with
blue lights and siren.
The additional officers will bring
the city's police force up from 59 to

'Cat in the helmet' art
approved for JB park

It's not Dr. Seuss but Jacksonville
Beach will display its own "Cat in
the Hat" sculpture at Wingate
The City Council Monday
approved a contract with the Otis
Smith Kids Foundation to install a
sculpture of a big cat climbing out
of a giant football helmet at the
park's Pops Wamer Football Field.
The Big Cats For Kids program is
a fundraising program that placed
sponsor funded sculptures in public
and corporate areas citywide.
City Manager George Forbes said
the foundation contacted the dity
about permanently installing the
big cat at the field because the
jaguar-inspired theme ties into the
Pop Warner logo and uniforms.
The sculpture was purchased by
Promo Depot with the desire to
have a permanent public art exhib-
it at the field.
Forbes said the cat will remain at
the field through May, 2007. The
athletic association will be responsi-
ble for maintaining the cat after the
term expires. The foundation will
handle the installation and provide
maintenance until next May.
The cat weighs 85 pounds with a
concrete base that is bolted to the
sculpture for a total weight of 1,200

Chamber trip report on
lessons learned from
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
Beach cities will not be referred to as
"speed bumps" if a hurricane hits
That was the consensus of those offi-
cials who attended a recent Jacksonville
Chamber of Commerce-sponsored trip
to New Orleans to see the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina and determine if any
lessons learned from emergency service
coordinators there could be of benefit
to this area.
Atlantic Beach City Manager Jim
Hanson was among those who attend-
ed three days of meetings in Louisiana
to learn about the hurricane's effects so
that local disaster planning may be
He presented a report on the trip to
Atlantic Beach City Commissioners last
week. He said while the effects of
Katfina on New Orleans would be dif-
ferent from Atlantic Beach, because of
the long term flooding in the Louisiana
city, "many of the problems found
could also be encountered in Atlantic
He said the loss of wetlands in New
Orleans was a significant concern. He
noted that the barrier islands near the
Big Easy were referred to by emergency
officials as "speed bumps" as they'
absorbed some of the winds and flood-
ing, dissipating hurricane force winds
Hanson told commissioners that
those who made the chamber trip
agreed such a designation should not
be used on the First Coast.
"We agreed that it was probably best
not to refer to the beach cities in Duval
County' as 'speed bumps,"' Hanson said
in his report.
Hanson said New Orleans speakers
who were involved in the immediate
response, as well as the rebuilding
efforts, told his group that several prob-
lems were identified after the storm.

ward, pets and communications were

Jacksonville Beach officials are
urging voters to visit the polls Dec.
5 for the city's runoff election for
the District 1 City Council seat.
But they want to make it clear
that only registered voters living
within the district boundaries will
be eligible to vote in the election as

Problems with communica-
tion made it difficult for respon-
ders to let people know what
was going on after the storm,
Graham said. He explained that
he learned just how important
battery-powered AM radios
could be in the1 aftermath of a
hurricane and said local emer-
gency officials may want to
emphasize that residents need
to have working AM radios to
use after a storm.
Without a radio, residents
have a hard time learning where
to get food, water, ice, medical
treatment and other essentials,
Communication issues were
one of the most ,serious prob-
lems New Orleans officials faced
post-Katrina, Hanson said in his
Problems were due to several
systems, such as telephone,
radio, cellular and even satellite,,
that werereither not working or;i
severely overloaded, according
to Hanson's report. Those who
endured Katrina told the Duval
visitors to have a variety of com-
munication alternatives and to
use them, according to the
* Another recommendation
was to ,make sure that shelters
are available for people with
pets, Hanson reported. Lack of
such shelters in New Orleans
was a -major obstacle when
Katrina struck, because.. many
who owned pets were unwilling
to evacuate without them.
* Paperwork delays have also
affected the rebuilding process,
speakers told the visitors. Many
state and local agencies have not
been reimbursed or have only
been partially reimbursed by
FE MA, and many homeowners
still have to settle with insur-
ance companies, according to.
the report. More than one year
after the storm hit, water, sewer
and electric services, are still not
available in many areas and this
has also slowed the process,
* Management of the many

The Leader's Opinion
Library needs upgrade
At 25,450 square feet, the Beaches Branch Library is less
than half the size of another nearby facility. It also has less
than half the computers of a neighboring library and a
much smaller budget for part time library employees.
Yet more than a quarter of a million visitors came to the
Third Street library during the first nine months of this year
- that's better than 80 percent of. the visitors that went to
the newer, better equipped branches nearby.
The numbers, all of which were furnished by the
Jacksonville library system, make it clear that the 20-year-
old Beaches branch needs attention - now. The Beaches
Branch was a great addition to, our community when it
opened in 1986 --.replacing a library that was literally
crammed into borrowed space in Jacksonville Beach's for-
mer community center.
The Beaches has .grown tremendously since then and'
many things have changed.
In 1986, .the only surfing being done:at the Beaches was
offshore. Now library patrons clamor for computer space to
surf the Internet.
As the president of the Friends of the Library has said, "lit-
eracy today comes in many forms."
Another thing which was changed since 1986 is the
amount of tax revenue that flows from here to the county.
The inequities continue to grow between what the Beaches,
with its rapidly appreciating tax base, pay into county cof-.
fers and what is returned here in county expenditures.
Some of that revenue should be returned now to improve
the library, a county facility, so that it can adequately serve
the Beaches. Many volunteers work hard to make the library
a key asset for.the community. But it is past time for the
county to ante up funds to improve the aging, slightly shab-
by and very inadequate facility

It was a picture-perfect day
with a cloudless sky, a warm,
gentle breeze and bright sun-
shine. My vehicle was front and
center as the Mavport Ferry left
the dock at Fort George Island. I
felt as if my van was gliding
across the water on its own.
Seagulls called from overhead as
the ferry shared the river with
pleasure boats and Jet Skis. After
completing my shopping in
Atlantic Beach, I took my place
m the line of other vehicles and
waited for the return trip.
My fellow passengers includ-
ed several carloads of people
headed to a wedding on Amelia
Island. As they dashed between
vehicles, filled with anticipation
for the upcoming nuptials, I
had no doubt this bnef ride on
the ferry contributed to the
excitement of the day and
would be included in their
memories of it.
A family visiting our area
from the Midwest also enjoyed
the short excursion.
They snapped photographs to
preserve the moment as their
children giggled and chattered
excitedly, watching the boats
and seabirds go past.
The Mayport Ferry has been
in operation since 1948, carry-
ing visitors and locals alike
between Fort George Island and
Mayport Village. But now it

Suggested ways to prevent
elimination of the ferry include
using a tax increment to finance
it or turning to the state of
Florida for assistance.

gers enjoy a short but memo-
rable ride across the St. Johns
River. I believe people would be
willing to endure a slight
increase in the fare if it meant

To the editor:
It seems everyone has their
opinion of what has hap-
pened regarding the FHSAA
sanctions against the Nease
High School football pro-
gram. These opinions, howev-.
er, cannot be based on facts
because everyone involved
has been "silenced" for one
reason or another.
The superintendent has
silenced the principal: who
has subsequently silenced the
Booster Club; and the lawyers
have silenced their clients,
The FHSAA Web site has
been the only source of infor-
mation, and what is stated
there could use some explana-
tion. An athlete was induced,
to enroll after . he was
enrolled?' :The' people
involved have not been
:allowed to present their story,
and I know there is one.
As' result, much has been
written, about Nease's football
program: without the facts
getting in the way. The opin-
ions of various local coaches
that have been defeated by
Nease (e.g., St. Augustine,
Ridgeview, have been print-
ed Of course, in their minds
the only wa' they could have
been beaten was if Nease had
violated the rules.
So what do I know? I know
Nease's secret to success is the
kids. Ponte Vedra is fortunate
to have vto youth football
programs, Pop Warner and
the Jr. Development Program.
These programs have over
300 kids participating. Nease's
football players largely come
from these programs, not
from transfers. As a former Jr..
Development coach, I know
first hand that we have 19
kids that are playing in the
Nease program .and Pop
W'arner has many as well.
I also know that it's riot the
weight room that makes the
team; it's the player that uses
the weight room., These kids
work hard, spending many
early morning summer hours
in the weight.room.
I also know it's the volun-
teers that help make Nease
successful. It's the many thou-
sands of volunteer hours that
parents put in behind the
scenes to make the program
run. Those selling T-shirts and
working in the concessions
stand help bring in money to
pay for uniforms. ,,. , ,
It's all those that painted
the stadium last summer and
those, that help with the,
games. It's all the fathers that
volunteer their time to coach
in the youth leagues as well as,
on the Nease team.
The two Nease coaches
released both [have]- sons on
the team. I know these coach-
es, and they would never
jeopardize the success of their
own son's team by doing
something that they under-
stood to be against the rules.
So,, it seems that I know a
lot more than I thought.

then, that I was asked recently

whenever I cook for others,
they always pray before they

like Chili. I spent a week there
once and thought the capital,
Santiago, was a very nice city.
Despite my outstanding cre-
dentials, I had difficulty decid-
ing on the winning entry. Of
course, each sample was;in a'
separate dish. I believe if they
were all dumped in one dish, it
would have been even harder to
pick the winner. Naturally, each
dish was numbered, no name
shown. That way, I wouldn't
know whose entry it was and
thereby be able to determine
who I should sue if I got sick.
No, seriously, all the samples
were delicious, so I was stumped
about designating the one to
get the blue ribbon.
I considered just counting the
beans in each bowl, because I
love beans. Then again, that
would not have "bean.' fair.
Another approach was" to select
the chili that generated the
loudest burp. I discarded that
idea since one of the cooks
might have an advantage, hav-
ing been born in Brussels or
some other place in Belchin.

fess that, in the end, I relied
completely on my taste buds,

to note that no one apparently
had used some weird ingredi-

pineapple, coffee, honey, and so

Members of the group obvi-
ously value 'honesty and fair-
ness. I would bet my Bible that

heard surfaced in another chili

Vocal criticism of some Nease
fans in the stands must stop
as it is unfair to student athletes
To the editor:
I would like to express myconcern over the
behavior of some fans at Nease football games.
For the rliost part, Nease has wonderful fans
that come out and support the players, cheer-
ing them on no matter what. The school is
lucky to have such enthusiastic people there
week after week who love to watch the team.
Unfortunately, there are a few people in the
stands that ruin the games for others with their
judgmental comments and negativity. Many of
the players' families and friends have noticed a
couple of people that feel it necessary to tear,
apart players' performances. Those boys are out
on the'field playing a sport they love. Not only
are these boys athletes, but they are students
who have other responsibilities. These young
'men put a lot on the line to play football
including physical injury. ,
In the Merritt Island game, three players were
hurt and more have been hurt in practice and
previous games during the season. Each and
every player has tremendous dedication 'to
their team and coaches. It is so horrible to heai
people in the stands make .disparaging com-
ments about the boys if they do something the
slightest bit wrong.
I imagine those boys feel pretty awful when
they make mistakes out there in front of all the
people that come to watch them. Why is is
that those select few "fans" must announce to
everyone seated around them the child's mis-
take and proceed to make critical remarks?
What self-righteous person thinks that player's
friends and family want to hear other people'
talk that way about them and criticize the team
True or False:
Rats carry as many as ten diseases.
as a whole?
We must all keep in mind while Nease has an
outstanding football team, it is still a group of
high school boys that are not perfect..
These few individuals that have been causing
distress to players' friends and families often do
not themselves have children on the team. I
would like these people to think how they
would feel if a group. of people came and
watched their children for three hours all the
while passing condescending remarks about
their flaws. I find it very discouraging that
these.people are so self-centered and unkind
that they can't think that perhaps their nega-
tivity is unwanted. The boys are fighting to win
on the fields. Your abuse in the stands in
uncalled for and mean-spirited. Those of you
that are causing a problem, I ask you two
things: First, what are you so insecure about
that the remedy is to come to a high school
football game and pass judgment on 15 to 18-
year-olds? Second, if a group of players' families
can guess your'identity just from hearing about
your ugly running narration of the game from
someone having the bad luck to sit within
earshot of you, isn't it time to direct your focus
To the fans who are there every game sup-
porting our boys, we thank you. You are a huge

anything at all.

unaware that canvas carports,
canopies arid "Pod" portable
storage containers on their,

After two previous rejections, Lynch's Pub
gets permission to add 1,500 square feet
without having to add additional parking
by LIZA MITCHELL
After twice being denied permission to expand, Lynch's Irish
Pub finally gained approval to add to its Jacksonville Beach
The city's Board of Adjustment Tuesday granted a variance
for the pub at 514 1st Street North to add 1,500-square-feet in
lieu of the five required parking spaces.
General Manager Keith Doherty said the space will nrot
increase the pub's occupancy.
In the variance application, the size of the bathrooms and
the proximity of the dry storage area to a gas water heater were
listed as the reason for the variance.
"The space is much needed," Doherty said Wednesday. "It
will give us a chance to bring our bathrooms up to code. It will
be nice to have a real office. My office consists of a table at the

Affordable housing is
essential to Beaches
Savirg affordable housing
and financial counseling are
"part of the fabric" that makes

to Carolyn Ettlinger, executive
director of the Housing

Ettlinger spoke at a Beaches
Business Association sheeting
Monday about the various pro-
grams the partnership offers to
the community and encour-
aged business involvement.
The partnership" was' estab-
lished 14 years ago to address
the broad spectrum of housing
needs in DuYal County,
It now offers several different .
services to benefit the commu-
nity such as a neighborhood
rehabilitation program, a
home, ownership center which
offers financial and credit
counseling, a community
development program and
Ettlinger encouraged busi-
nesses to participate in team-
building events such as "Paint
the Town," where. multiple
groups consisting of 10 to 15
people help with the housing
Central Business District, urged the board to deny the request
because public parking is at a premium, especially in the down-
Doherty said he believes the request was granted because the
expansion would not add to the patronage.
"I've not known of too many people who want to drink in
the toilet," he said. "It's not new construction. It is what it is."
A prior request to add 4,000-square-feet to construct new
restroom facilities with handicapped access, dry storage, office
and cooler space was denied because the proposal also includ-
ed an additional 2,100-square-feet of pub space to install a
third bar and add four new pool tables.
According to the city's guidelines, BOA members must deter-
mine if a variance request meets certain criteria for approval,
including the nature of the hardship.
The burden of proof is on the applicant to demonstrate the

program emphasizes Biblical
teachings and Christian values
along with sports skills.
"It's not just about basket-
ball, it's about growing God's
kingdom," said Chandler.

set to attend

ning next fall.
B r a s w e 1,
Fl e t c h e r's
leadoff hitter and second
baseman, has opted for,
Savannah College of Art
Fletcher head baseball
coach Kevin Brown called
Perry the most versatile play-
er on his team.
"Sam can play any position
on the held including the bat-
tery as a pitcher or catcher,"
said Brown. "His teammates
call him 'Silk' because he's so
smooth at third base and has
a smooth batting stroke.
"We'll probably rely on him
a great deal as a pitcher next
season and at third, though
' scouts project him as; a short-
stop in college. He's just got
great range and is definitely a-
Div. I-type athlete."
Perry batted .362 with five
doubles, and three home runs
during the regular season last
year. He was also 7-1 as a
a 1.60 ERA.
i.-- .Braswell, ';a
5'8' , middle
year I realized
that Pat is a
clone of [the. Cardinals']
David Eckstein," Brown
remarked. "With the quick-
ness of Pat's throws and his
ability as a leadoff hitter, he
has all the tools to succeed on
the next level.
"In the leadoff spot last
year he showed power, an
ability to get on base and was
great at the hit-and-run."
Braswell made the Gateway
All-Conference team last sea-
son, recording five home runs
and batting .318.
Both players will make
their commitments official
on national signing day. ,

Some strange offithe-field injuries
If you are like me, during

plays as well as the great hits. I
also like to get an update on
who has been injured, and see
the plays on which the injury

too. These really are-reported
injuries, and I promise I am not
making this up.
Quarterback Brian Griese,
after having previously fallen
down in his driveway and
smashing his face, once tripped
over his dog, fell down the
stairs and sprained an ankle.
Former Jaguars punter Chris
Hanson once cut his leg with
an axe, chopping a log in the
locker room in what was sup-
posed to be a motivational
stunt. He had previously
missed time due to second
degree burns on his hands and
ankle from a fondue mishap.
And then there was the saga
of ThomasJones, Arizona
Cardinals running back, who
broke his hand while reaching
for the telephone.
However, the most ridiculous
excuse for missing game time
has to be from Kevin Mitchell,
former Redskins LB, who was
unable to play due to "strained

the most comical methods of

pitcher Tom Glavine once

ing a team flight in 1992, and
John Smoltz once burned his

that he happened to be wearing
at the time.

Bill Dickey knocked himself
unconscious when he dove
into the dugout while celebrat-

Rickey Henderson once got
frostbite, in August, when he
fell asleep while icing his ankle.
Terry Harper partially dislo-

Royals, cracked his ribs show-
ing his brother some kung fu

with a knife trying to get the
shrink wrap off of a DVD.
Rangers outfielder Oddibe
McDowell sustained a three-
inch gash on his hand while
buttering a roll
It appears that the hotel
room is a common place of
injury. Wade Boggs fell into a
hotel couch while trying to pull
on his cowboy boots and sus-
tained bruised ribs.
Oakland A's pitcher Rich
Harden once strained his shoul-
der reaching for the snooze
button on his alarm. Chicago
Cub Glen Allen Hill, was
dreaming he was being
attacked by spiders, and
smashed a glass table top and
cut his hand.
Slugger Sammy Sosa once
missed two weeks due to a
strained ligament in his back.
The muscled home run hitter
for the Chicago Cubs was not
injured swinging for the fences,
not running the bases, and not
diving for a fly ball. No, he

Then get your stash of
blankets, old sheets, newspa-

to cover tender plants when
predictions for temperatures
in the 30's occur.
Tropical plants like
allemande, hibiscus, orchids,
poinsettias, some gingers,
newly-planted cold hardy

more tender palms will need
protection from frosts.
, However, some need protec-

drops to anything below 40.
Remember to remove the
coverings after morning
temperatures get above 40
or your plants will cook.
For those of you who will
be buying Christmas trees,
remember that the stands
that are providing protec-
tion for the trees with tents
or heavy tree canopy are the
best places to look.
Keeping in mind that
these trees were probably
cut back in late September,
they have been slowly dry-
ing out, so by the time they
are unwrapped here, they
are in dire need of a drink of

either put it in a water-filled
bucket until you are ready
to take it inside, or if imme-
diately taken indoors, your
tree stand should be the
type that holds water and
you can do fill it right away.
Keeping the tree from dry-
ing out and presenting a fire
hazard is the goal.
Extension Service has a cur-
rent list of U-Cut Christmas
Tree farms, so if that is your
idea, give them a call for the
locations and phone num-
bers before you head out.
Keep in mind that once cut,
the tree will start its drying
process, so be sure and
either put it up immediately
or manage its time outside
so it gets sprayed a few
times a day with water, and
the bucket is always full
with fresh water.
Make a fresh cut to the
trunk just prior to bringing
it indoors; sap clogs the
pores preventing the uptake
of water and nutrients once
the tree is cut.
And, there is no research
that proves the addition of
sugar, or other magical
ingredients like baking soda,
vinegar, etc., etc. actually

as hypocrifcal as it gets.

Fleming's debut novel
sets the stage for Bond

novels, "Casino Rovale"
(1953) is the basis for the lat-

Unlike Bond in the film,
Bond never fires a.shot or
throws a punch in the book.
Most of the action is relegated
to the baccarat table, where
007 matches wits with a high-
rolling Russian operative "on
the brink of a financial crisis."
And despite having two kills
to his credit, the introspective
secret agent downplays his
"It's not difficult to get a
Double 0 number, if you're
prepared to kill people," Bond
tells his first - and last - true
love, Vesper Lynd in the book.
"It's nothing to be particu-
larly proud of. One does what
one is told."
This is a budding Bond,
more emotionally and physi-
cally vulnerable than in later
novels, or films, for that mat-
As much as he likes to play
the field, Bond is smitten by
the beautiful Lynd, and the
romance has dire conse-
quences for byth.
In the novel, Bond drives
his battleship-grey Bentley

"The grass-green baise bat-
tlefield soaks up the blood of
its victims," writes Fleming
about the evil-tinged card
"The scent and sweat of a
casino are nauseating at three
in the morning. The soul ero-
sion produced by high gam-
bling - a compost of greed
and fear and nervous tension."
If nothing else, the reader
comes away with at least a
rudimentary knowledge of
high-stakes baccarat and
Bond's back story.
Never before "melted" by a
woman, Bond falls in love in
"Casino Royale," but is double
crossed in the end.
The emotional scar silences
his heart and strengthens his
resolve "to take on SMERSH
and hunt it down."
"The business of espionage
could be left to the white-col-
lar guys," the book concludes.
"He would go after the
threat behind the spies, the
threat that made them spy."

Lionti building artist's environment
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
A flamingo rendition of
Groucho MNarx and a red hat
lady hang out near a bottle
tree in the front yard of a
local. atist's house.
The yard is the beginning
of an "artist's environment,"
created by F. Caterina Lionti,
a Beaches abstract artist who
wanted to establish a place
that evokes happy feelings,
in part because of her hus-
band's cancer and for others
to enjoy, in general.
Lionti is not your typical
artist. Much of her work,
which is mostly abstract, is
created on a computer using
a fractal, which is a geomet-
ric formula, according to
Lionti. Although her work is
done on a computer, Lionti
Equates the process to a dif-
ferent form of painting.'
Using several computer pro-
grams, Lionti is able to layer
colors and "paint with light"
as she describes it.
She inputs' the formula
into the computer arid cre-
ates abstract images, full of
bold color and light. Her'art
feels like an ebb between
light-hear-ted and mysterious
- much like she.does.
For example, one of her
paintings, "Glass Worlds,"
actually looks as if the float-
ing orbs in the painting are
glowing. The effect is other-
Perhaps that is because
many of Lionti's ideas are
inspired by her dreams.
"I get my ideas at 3 o'clock
in the morning." said Lionti,
who can't sleep on an idea
and feels compelled to work
when the thought strikes.
One of her next projects
involves a sculpture that she
has seen repeatedly in a reoc-
curring dream which rotates
so she can see how it should
Her work today is often
inspired by the images and
cultures ,she has been sur-
rounded by in her travels.'
Many, of her pieces are
inspired by the water, which
she loves. For example, she
created "Bayou Mysteries"
from her memories of living
near the swamps in
Mississippi. The painting
evokes feelings of mystery
and intrigue with swirling
tendrils of dark color.
"The swamps fascinated
me," she said.
While some of her work
eludes to a more enigmatic
side of her personality,
Lionti has a playful and
She is currently creating an
"artist's environment," a
themed setting that artists
use to express ideas and
thoughts to the world. Some
artists create religious mon-
tages, for example, others,
such as Lionti take a more
"When people come here,
it'll make them smile," she
said. Her goal is to create a
happy place for she and her
husband to enjoy as well as
to spread happiness to oth-
When the environment is
complete, it will include a
"wall of wisdom," full of
quotes, a geodesic sphere,
covered in glass, and toilets
converted into mosaic chairs
for the front porch.
While Lionti wants her art
to bring some deep meaning
to people, she also likes to
make it fun, she said.

Lionti's bottle tree, decorated with glass bottles hanging from
the branches, certainly adds a flair to her Beaches yard.

Now, I have just a few com-
ments to make on a couple of
other plants that have noth-
ing to do with the December
holidays, but with the change
of the natural seasons.
This is a very good time to
notice pine trees that are
dying because they stand out
against the brilliant blue sky
at this time of year.
The tops begin to turn a
light green, then yellow, then
more of the tree exhibits this,
and soon you see brown
branches so when a storm
comes along, limbs start
The southern pine bark bee-

pines. There is no cure for

Also notice that as beautiful
as Live Oaks are, they have
seeds which fall all over, stain-
ing whatever they hit. They
lose the seedpods now, mak-
ing a mess of driveways and

months will lose their leaves
so fast you will not even

sending out a million light
green seedpods that drop

they do drop, a sprout will
Did you know that if your
tree hangs over into your
neighbor's yard, the neighbor
has the legal right to cut off
all of the intrusive branches?
This applies to any tree,

3, Fabric can,.lso be put to
use as gift wrap. It can cover
awkward-shaped gifts not easi-
ly wrapped by paper. For those
. who are especially handy,
j fabric can be sewn to form
gift sacks, stockings or
wine cozies. Stock up on
reduced-price novelty pat-
tern fabric at a local craft store
at the end of the season, so the
fabric will be on hand come'
next year. Or browse the rem-
nants bin for small pieces of
fabric that can form a patch-
work or wrap small gifts.
4. Other housewares items
can also be used 'when wrap-
ping. Use drapery tassels to tie
.up gifts in lieu of ribbon. It can
make the gift look elegant and
expensive. With some drapery
tassels costing about $1.00 at a
discount store, this can be an
inexpensive touch. that just
looks like a lot was spent on it.
5. Make the wrapping part of
the gift. Use decorative scarves,
hair clips, towels and similar
6. Don't throw out all of
those scraps of ribbon that
often become left over. Weave
them together so that they'
cover the lid and bottom of a
gift box completely. The result
will certainly be a unique gift
7. For those with a "Dollar
Store" Y'i6Hby bwse the'af'led'
for other inexpensive trinkets
or ideas into thoughtful and
creative gift wrap.
8. Sometimes simple materi-
als have the most impact.
Brown postal paper stamped
with a pattern and tied off with
raffia will set gifts apart.
9. Creativity should not only
lie in the gift wrap. Think of
clever ways to present the gift
to heighten the sense of antici-
pation. Have the gift recipient
follow a set 'of clues on a "treas-
ure hunt." Or hide the gift
inside something else. For
example, a ring set inside of a
rosebud that has not yet
opened will yield a wonderful
surprise when the flower

1. Gift boxes come in a vari-
ety of colors, so why hide them
under gift wrap? Use the box
-itself to create a personalized
package. Simply cut out pat-
terns in the box, such as a
snowflake, snowman, candle,
etc., depending upon the occa-
sion. Use a sharp cutting tool
like an X-acto knife. Line the
box with colored tissue paper,
and the color will show

much more than just home

Eight ways I make my kitchen cook
Love to cook and am pretty
good at it, too. Dinner's on
the table every night at six
and no one leaves hungry.
But, what helps me most is
not the years I've spent refin-
ing my culinary skills, it's the
tools that I've built into the
kitchen that makes me the
most efficient and able to turn
out great-tasting food quickly.
See if these tips don't help
1. Large sink. The problem
with double sinks is that few
use the double-bowl wash and
rinse method anymore.
Today, a large one bowl sink
makes the most sense. In my
kitchen, I have one extra large
bowl with a small disposal
bowl and built-in dram board.
2. Spice storage. For season-
ings I use daily, I attached a
wall hanger next to the stove
and put my cooking spray,
favorite spices,,salt and pepper
here. I even keep a bottle of
olive oil here so it's at the
3. More refrigeration.
When people complain about
the refrigerator, it's usually
because there's not enough of
it. An often overlooked option
is the single door "all refriger-
ator" and "all freezer."
Instead of the combination
unit, I have an individual
refrigerator and freezer in my
With these two units, I have
a whopping 35 square feet of
space instead of the usual 25
or so square feet of space
available in a combination
Best of all, I got a high-end
amount of storage with a reg-
ular refrigerator price tag.
4. Go big. Recently I needed
a utensil holder but the ones
at the home center only held
about six items. So, I took a
spatula to my garden center to
size up a new utensil holder. I
bought a beautiful ceramic
pot to hold all my utensils.
Think about size in your
kitchen. You need items large
enough to suit your needs. If
you don't find what you need
off the rack, improvise or have
something custom made for
you. I had a giant platter cus-
tom made for me by The
Hairy Potters (wi. that holds a
whole pound of cooked pasta.
Don't think custom is out of
5. Kitchen garden. Nothing
makes your good cooking sing
like fresh herbs and vegeta-
bles. I have a kitchen garden
that I couldn't live without.
Take the time to take your
kitchen outdoors and plant
some herbs and lettuces.
My kitchen garden consists
of mesclun lettuce, radishes,
dill, basil, thyme, shallots,
mint, and oregano.
6. Towel bar. If you're like
me, you're always looking for
a dishtowel to handle a hot
pan or to place a wet dish on.
Instead of hooks in a cabinet
door, install a small towel rail
on your island or cabinet.
7. Quality cookware. If
you're tired of scorching'your
foods, try cast iron. Funny,
but this old stand-by is now
being favored by cooks like
Yes, it's extremely heavy
and that's what I don't like
about it, but it goes from
stovetop to oven and doesn't
cost an arm and a leg. Even
simple cornbread can be
transformed from yellow
blandness to gustatory heights
with the crunchy-golden crust
cast iron makes.
8. Organization. Kitchen
organization makes every-
thing go easier. Whether it's a
cabinet over the dishwasher
where dishes can be unloaded
without walking or a well-
organized pantry, organization
will make you work less and
be more efficient in the
Even unsightly trashcans
can be put under the sink
with a pull-out trash can.
Pull out organizers and bas-
kets are extremely useful and
easy to retrofit into most cabi-
E-mail questions to kathryn-
A kitchen garden with lettuces and herbs ready for snipping is a wonderful addition to any kitchen
and can be planted in a small amount of space. Many kinds of herbs and lettuces, radishes, and
other small salad items can be grown in many parts of the country in the winter.

MAKE ROOM - Now that the
holidays ate here, I thought I'd
share this tip for storing a lot
of food in your refrigerator.
You'll gain more room in less
space with square and rectan-
gular storage containers.
Round containers, waste more
room in the fridge, freezer and
cabinets. Lisa J.1
BAKER'S CHOICE - I do a lot
of baking this time of year.
When a cake recipe calls for
flouring the baking pan, I use a
bit of the dry cake mix instead
- no white mess on the outside
of the cake. Bett' G.
CLEAN IT UP - To make
cleaning grease splatters on the

firm Ma pa l

wall behind the stove easier,
first, clean the painted wall
behind your stove. Then spray
the entire area with a generous
coat of furniture polish and
buff well with paper towels.
You will then be able to wipe
future grease splatters away
easily with a dry sheet of paper
towels. Alma T.
CARPET CLEANING - If
you're like me, you'll probably
be having lots of company this
time of year, which means
spills and stains on the rug. If
someone spills coffee, here's
what I do: I blot the spilled cof-
fee from the carpet with baby
wipes. The wipes absorb coffee
without leaving a stain. Terry
FOLLOW THE SIGNS - If you
have an unfinished basement
or crawlspace, check for leaks
by looking for spider webs. If
there is a web, there is a draft.
A large amount of heat is also
lost from an uninsulated base-
ment. If you take care of these
leaks and insulate your base-
ment, you'll save a lot of
money on heating costs every
year. Fred B.
