Jim Stenstrup, who's been teaching
computers for 15 years through adult
education, is instructing the Senior

beginners, the other for intermediates.
The sessions began Nov. 28.
Stenstrup said the biggest challenge,
no matter what the age group, is getting
his students to "coordinate the mouse
Stenstrup emphasized he takes it slow
with his senior students.
"We start with turning on the com-
puter," he said. "By the end of the three
weeks, they'll have their own Internet
mail and be able to do the things they
want to do. But it's mostly with the
Internet, sending email messages, trying
to keep up with the grandkids."
Each class has access to six computers,
and each class is full. The other mem-
bers of the beginners class are George

Jacksonville Beach City Council
addressed several issues facing
the city at a forum sponsored
this week by the Beaches
Steve Hartkemeyer and Scott
Chesnut participated in a ques-
tion and answer session during
the 30-minute forum at the
city's golf clubhouse.
"I commend Scott for going
through this with me,"
Hartkemeyer said. "This has
been a long road to hoe."
Chesnut said he hopes that
voters in the district will come
out and vote in the county's
only run off election.
"it's tough to get people back
out in the middle of the holi-
days," he said.
The candidates tackled issues
such as building height, afford-
able housing and public safety.
As a participant in the city's
height study committee over
two years ago, Chesnut said he
was surprised to learn during his
campaign that building height
is still a concern.

The Leader's Opinion
SomeJB voters still
to vote Tuesday
Leader recommends Hartkemeyer
Slightly more than 5,000 Jacksonville Beach voters are
eligible to cast ballots Tuesday in a district seat race for
the City Council.
In the race for District One, which includes much of
southern Jacksonville Beach, Scott Chesnut and Steve
Hartkemeyer are vying for voter's affection - and atten-
tion. . . '
Neither of the candidates secured a clear majority
during the November election, when there was a third
candidate in the race. Now the two top vote getters are
hoping voters will vote for them Tuesday.
There are no other races on that ballot, so turnout is
expected to be sparse as only those living in the district
can cast ballots. If you are eligible, please remember to
vote. Every vote really will count.
We have said before that .we believe Hartkemeyer,
who is currently chairman of the city's Board of
Adjustment, has a demonstrated record of standing up
for the city on planning matters and that is a valuable
asset to have here as development pressures continue.
We recommend Steve Hartkemeyer for District One.

Good Sataritans rescue a pelican in peril
O n a recent day at the
beach with a West
Coast friend in tow
who's never been to the East
Coast, we were both admiring
the formations of pelicans fly-,
ing south, and the occasional:
dives of one plummeting into
the water fishing in front of
Us. Jackie, my friend, had
never seen.a brown pelican,
and was entranced. "Hey, look.
at that one, over there, fish-
So, I looked where she point-
ed, quickly grabbed my beach
towel and ran to the water's
edge. This pelican was not fish-
ing. It had been "fished." The
poor pelican was hooked on a
fishing line and struggling to
fly, only to be yanked back
down rudely into the sea. The
distraught fisherwoman didn't
know what to do. Her husband
ran to help, and so did I, towel
in hand. The pelican was too
fax out in the water for us to
easily nab, so we instructed his
wife to gently pull in the line.
Sadly, the pelican flopped in
the surf and got dragged awk-
wardly by waves pounding into
Hoping against hope that the
bird had not broken a wing in
the tumble, I edged between it
and deeper water. As the dis-
traught pelican lunged and
snapped its large, hook-tipped
bill towards me, I quickly tluew
my towel over its head. Caught!
As I held its beak shut with my
hands, the husband worked the
fishhook out of the bird's
shoulder. Task accomplished, as
a team, he and I released the
pelican and stepped back. I
yelled at all the other spectators
- by now we had a crowd - to
get away, go up the beach, and
we all retreated far from the
dazed bird to watch from a
After a few very long minutes
the pelican lifted off, to soar
above the water, uninjured
except for its dignity and some
missing feathers where the line
had rubbed across its neck. The
watching crowd cheered and
applauded as the bird flew
away to join his kin on the
Others might have simply
cut the fishing line and let the
pelican fly off, but this ulti-
mately can contribute to the
bird's death. Any line dangling
from a bird is. liable to get tan-
gled when the bird perches,
wrapped .on sea floordebris
when it .dives or cause other
troublesome situations that'
don't us ally end pleasantly.
Last fall, for instance, I was
involved in trying to rescue an
anhinga that had fishing line
wrapped around its beak, leav-
ing it unable to eat or drink.
Unfortunately we were unsuc-
cessful in capturing this bird
and it is no doubt long dead.
I'm really glad the pelican
story had a happier ending. If
the pelican had left with the
line still attached, its fate might
match that of the anhinga.
And, if it had indeed broken a
wing in the shuffle, his fate was
also predetermined. BEAKS, the
bird rescue facility on Big
Talbot Island, is no longer tak-
ing in injured birds. Another
rehabilitation facility, Pelican
Point, 19041 838,2076, near the
Jacksonville Zoo sometimes has
room for another bird, but not
always. And, If not, there is no
other nearby viable option. The
Humane, Society is not set up
for rescuing wild animals, and,
if they. did respond, would
most likely put the pelican out
of his misery, humanely, but
Last winter I knew of one
injured pelican that was lucky
enough to come ashore on our
beach in front of a caring
beachfront homeowner. For
weeks, this Good Samaritan
collected fish and other by-
catch from our shrimp fleet,
and fed the bird twice a day,
along with various other shore-
birds that heard the news.
Pelicans have formidable beaks,
and as the pelican gained
strength it also got bolder and
more dangerous to deal with.
Eventually it got very demand-
ing about these feeds, and
would wait on her boardwalk,
or make its way to her back
I was sworn to secrecy about
this bird. Most likely it was ille-
gal to feed a pelican without a
rehab permit, and even more
likely, the news of this regular
"bird show" would attract too
many gawkers that might ulti-
mately seal his fate. Finally, in
the spring, the bird left, to find
its own food once again and
the homeowner was back to
feeding just seagulls and terns,
Now, whenever I see pelicans
fly by, I think about the one I
helped rescue,, and the one
these Good Samaritans helped
through a long season, arid
hope "our" birds are some-
. where out there still alive and
well. Sometimes it's best not to
know the real ending of such
stories. For .my friend from
, California and me, the single
pelican we helped rescue will
live forever in our minds. And,

With a win tonight at
Tallahassee Lincoln, the
Panthers will reach the Class
4A state championship game
for the second straight year.
The contest will take place at
Dolphin Stadium in Miami

But next season, according
to sanctions handed down by
the FHSAA, Nease football is
banned from participating in
spring or fall jamborees, play-
. ing outside the state of Florida
or teams from outside Florida,
and from appearing on tele-
vised broadcasts until 2012.
The penalties, which also
included an FHSAA-record
$20,000 fine and placing the
school's entire athletic pro-
gram on administrative proba-
lion for five yeai', stemmed
from what the organization
termed "major violations"
regarding special inducements
and considerations for a play-
er and his father.
Two assistant football
coaches were fired as a result
of the FHSAA finding, howev-
er an appeal is in the works.
For the sake of supposition,
let's say Nease football contin-
ues to excel and finds itself in
the 2007 state title game. Will
the FHSAA mandate the faces
of all Panthers players be
pixellated like protected wit-
nesses on Court TA'? How
about the announcers - will
they refer to Nease simply as
"Team X," or will technicians
just bleep any mention of the
squad and its players?
Forget post-game interviews
or those sappy, sentimental
pre-taped pieces that are sup-
posed to add color to the tele-
cast. Can't do it because the
Panthers have been banned
like Christmas carols in Iran.
Nope. Just green uniforms,
gold helmets and faces as
blurred as naughty bits on the
lerry Springer Show.

Fletcher head coach Rich

out to a pretty substantial lead
and I don't know if it was
something they could have

"I was really worried about

we were able to do in the first

said Panthers coach Sherri

put you in, I'll put you in.' You
know, that shell game when
you're guessing who's going to

needs to be done."
There are a lot of fresh faces
on the Panthers roster this sea-

How do the Florida
coaches get the Gators
set to play Arkansas
Saturday night for this year's
It's easy. All head coach
Urban Meyer has to do is hyp-
notize his players and tell they
they're going to play Georgia.
The Gators can whip
Georgia standing on one leg.
While the Bulldogs had anoth-
er shocker last Saturday, upset-
ting a stronger and highly-
favored Georgia Tech, 15-12,
for their sixth straight win
over the Engineers, the Gators
still have the blueprint on
how to beat the Dogs ...
The loss left the Tech players
in shock, not to mention
coach Chan Gailey, the old
Florida Gator player most are
too young to remember. In
fact, Gailey probably played
before most of the current
Gators were born.
Likewise, Yellow Jackets
players are probably too young
to remember the eight straight
years Bobby Dodd's Tech team
won over Georgia in the
1950s. That's one reason
Bulldogs fans cherish the cur-
rent win streak over their
Peach State rivals.
Techstill has an outstanding
team and its date with Wake
Forest here in the Alltel con-
fines should be a good one.
Gators overcome Razorbacks
What bowl Georgia can get
to remains to be seen. With an
8-4 season, plus finishing with
wins over Auburn and the
Yellow Jackets, two ranked
foes, won't hurt.
Florida's victory over Florida
State should have surprised no
one. It was a great way for sen-
ior quarterback Chris Leak to
end his regular-season career
in Orange and Blue. Leak kept

two years when the team was,

is getting to be like the
Russian Front in World War II,
Jack Del Rio's troops fell over
again until it was too late.
But what's the surprise in los-
ing to the Buffalo Bills, 27-24.
What's the difference
between Houston, Washington
and Buffalo? Only a few weeks
on the schedule, it turns out.

a great win the Jaguars always
take the next week off. After
all, this was not a Monday
night game, so why get "up"

P poinsettias are the most
popular plant of the
season, and their
majestic display of color is
The poinsettia is a tropical
plant, so it is sensitive to
freezes or even temperatures
in the low 40s.
Since we use these plants
both indoors and outdoors
in decorating, I'll address
their care from both angles.
Poinsettias kept outdoors
must be kept out of strong
winds and protected from
the cold temperatures.
They like to stay "evenly
moist," are not real happy
with overhead watering nor
with baking all day in the
They prefer a little sun,
and under a light canopy of
shrubs or trees they'll really
Tucked in the entrance of
your front door is always a
popular spot for them, and
if you stay on top of water-
ing, they will love that spot.
Daytime temperatures in
such a location can be simi-
lar to those of a greenhouse,
so their watering needs will
For poinsettias that are
indoors, the same rule
applies regarding water, in
that they like to stay "even-
ly moist," They hate being
placed under a heat vent,
near a fireplace in use or in
a dark room all day. They
prefer the sun, even if it is
only for a portion of the
Managing water needs
One of my favorite places
for my poinsettias was on
my dining room table, sur-
rounded by freshly cut
greens from the yard. The
problem was that the dining
room never had an. natural
[ ended up taking the
plants to a sunn\ window
during the times I was not
using the dining room, and
that kept both of us happy.
The requirement for
"evenly moist" may chal-
lenge the caretaker, so I'll
try to help you out.
Most of the time the
plants we have are in a foil
sleeve and in a very loose
soil mixture that weighs
close to nothing when dry.
You may have picked up a '
plant and, realizing how
light it was, thought it need-
ed to be watered. Then per-
haps you took it to a sink to
give it water, watching the
water run off the dirt.
The loose mixture causes
this to happen when it gets
too dry, and that is one of
the reasons for never allow-
ing it to become that dry.
By the same token, poin-
settias hate to be overwa-
tered, sitting in a sleeve
filled with foul-smelling
water. Yes, the "evenly
moist" state is hard to,
In my experience, I have
found a solution that works
most of the time for the
poinsettias I have outside as,
well as inside.
I feel the soil, sticking my
finger into it up to my
knuckle. If it is damp, I
leave it alone; if it is more
on the dry side, into the
kitchen it goes.
I remove the sleeve, place
the plants into the sink after
having closed the drain. I
use the faucet to water the,

If so, head over to St. Paul's

tonight to hear Ensemble
Chaconne in concert.
The 7:30 p.m. event, spon-
sored by the Beaches Fine Arts
Series, features the Boston-
based trio performing the
music of Shakespeare on peri-
od instruments backed by the
singing of a mezzo-soprano.
Ensemble Chaconne, which
features Peter H. Bloom on
Renaissance flute, Carol Lewis
on viola da gamba and Olav
Chris Henriksen oir
Renaissance lute, focus exclu-
sively on the late 16th and
17th century music that
would have heard.
In 2005, the group, now in
its 21st year of existence,
released the CD "Measure for
Measure," a 23-song compila-
tion featuring arrangements
by some of the great com-
posers of Shakespeare's day,
including Thomas Morley,
Robert Johnson and John
Dellal, who joins the trio on
the CD, also will perform
tonight at St. Paul's.
Ensemble Chaconne is ded-
icated to vivid, historically-
informed performances of
Renaissance and Baroque
music on period instruments.
Among the group's
Shakespearean selections is
"Greensleeves," the best-
known ballad quoted in "The
Mary Wives of Windsor."
The concert is free and
open to the public. Doors
open at 6:45 p.m. at 1150 5th
St. N., Jacksonville Beach.

INHD will keep flame burning
Wasn't going to write about
Christmas TV specials this
year, because they've got-
ten so predictable. iThere are
only so many ways I can extol
those dippy dancers in "A
Charlie Brown Christmas.")
But I was looking through
the holiday TV listings last
week and came across some-
thing I couldn't believe.
There's a cable-TV channel
named INHD, devoted exclu-
slK ' to hirh-definitTdh TV
LAWdcast4. I dcbhli 1rake
HDTV, but I really wish I had
this channel because starting
at 7 a.m. on Christmas Day,
INHD is going to broadcast a
Yule log for 24 hours.
You read that right. For 24
hours, this channel is going to
show nothing but a continual-
ly burning fire log
You can't get any more
high-concept than this. I'm
sure that people who actually
work for a living would love
to have listened to the lackey
* . .
who pitched this idea.
LACKEY: "It's a log. You
.know, like you bum in your
HOLLYWOOD EXEC: "OK,
so what's the storyline?"
"There's no storyline.
There's just this burning log."
"And the doofus dad gets
the wrong kind of log and
burns the house down, right?"
"No, boss, it's just this log.
We show it on your TV screen
all Christmas Day."
"Well, who's gonna want to
"That's the beauty of it.
There's no stars, so we don't
need sponsors. We just show
the log all day."
"This isn't some Very
Special Episode kind of log,
right? It doesn't burn any kids
Abodtit it. Viewets.can.j.atch
the log all day and not feel
threatened by any big message
or complicated plotline."
"Geez, why didn't we think
of this before? Green-light it!
And see if you can work up a
sequel for New Year's Eve."
Oh, and by the way, if you
didn't watch ABC three nights
ago, you've missed "A Charlie
Brown Christmas" until next

Dear Wes, ,
I have always been active. I play tennis three times a week and have
been going to the gym for yeals. Even with all of this, I still felt and
looked like I was missing out. T was in bad shape whenI was referred to
S Fitness Together back in August. I was heavier than I should have
been, my clothes weren't fitting like they used to, and I had no muscu-
lar definition. I felt like I was "spinning my wheels' in the gym - I was
Working so hard but got no real results. I had no direction.
Thanks so much forgetting me back on track! In just eight weeks of
training, my results have far exceeded my expectations. With your
help, I have trimmed off almost 3% of the fat on my body, my heart
rate has improved dramatically, and I am stronger and more flexible
than ever. My tennis game has also improved dramatically. A once sub-
par backhand is now my. power shot. My partners can't believe the
improvement! Most importantly, I feel better about myself, and this
positive outcome is just as important as the change in my physical
Thanks so much for motivating and holding me accountable- I look
forward to continuing my success with you and the other outstanding

Perorm a daily clean sweep
No one likes to have a
dirty house, but when
holidays, kids, cooking,
and job all make demands of
you. it's easy to see why
housekeeping goes to the back
of the line - or falls out alto-
So, what do you do when
you need to clean house but
don't have the time? Change
When you look back on
your life, the things that stay
in your mind are some of the
things related to homekpeepig-
not how much time you spent
at the office. It's home and
hearth you remember, you
pine for, you need.
Too many people think that
they have to either be
"Martha" or give up on home
chores completely. It's not an
Perfection is not the goal, a
reasonably clean house is -
and it needs to involve every-
one. Housekeeping is not a
"mom" or "dad" or "mom
and dad" job. It's a "whoever
lives in the house needs to
Where can you find the
* At Work. You probably put
in extra time in your job. Just
take out 10-15 minutes for
yourself when you spend an
extra hour at work and apply
* With the kids. Spend 10
less minutes with the kids and
their homework. Do your
quickie cleaning while they
do their studying.
* GeFup-tf-minutes earlier.
If you find 4ta.you don't
mind doing early morning
cleaning, plan to do it then -
or whenever you find it both-
ers you least.
* Get a digital video
recorder (DVR). No kidding.
TV sucks away your time. You
can do your quickie cleaning
while something is recording.
A DVR will help you gain
more of your life back. Check
into them through your cable
TV or satellite service.
Don't make housekeeping
something to be endured
Keeping a reasonably clean
house doesn't require all day
marathon cleaning week in-
and week out. Consistent
cleaning on a regular basis is
enough to get you through to
the times when you can spend
Really, there isn't much you
must do to keep a reasonably
neat home, but there are two.
1. You must make your bed
- and have the kids make
their bed. Nothing makes a
house feel messier. It takes less
than 30 seconds to make a
2. You must do the dishes.
Empty the dishwasher and fill
it with the dirty dishes every
single day. This is five minutes
Next, you need the right
tools to help you "quick
here. Get the disposable mop-
ping and cleaning wipes.
You'll use these because
they're instantly ready to go

er, disposable cleaning wipes)
* Popup glass or multisur-
face wipes that can be used on
stoves, counters, appliances,
windows, and bathrooms
* Swiffer mop and mopping
pads. The Swifter mop with
the pretreated mopping pads
can help you get up all the
stains and sticky stuff quickly
and easily and it's quick dry-
* A quick vac
* A stack of microfiber tow-
els for dusting
Even the person who says
that they have no time can
find about ten minutes to do
a quick clean each day.
Remember, you and your
family need a lining space
where you can de-stress. Dirt
and clutter add to stress. Take
the 10 minutes to give back to
your house. It'll repay you
and your family in enjoy-
ment, relaxation - and pride.
The 3-Step No-Time-to-
Clean Cleaning Plan 1.
Do a daily "Clean Sweep."
Set the timer and get everyone
in a different room of the
house. Or, give someone a
mop or a vacuum. Set the
timer for five minutes.
Everyone go at it - straighten,
put things away, give surfaces
a quick dust, vacuum and/or
2. Get a quick vac. I can't
tell you how much I love the
"Eureka Quick Up" cordless
stick vacuum. I can sweep my
tile kitchen and hallways and
do a quick touch up on car-
pets in less than 60 seconds.
It has settings for both
kinds of floors. It's fast and
convenient - which means
you'll use it.
3. Clean it when you see it.
Give each room a one minute
cleaning when you go in
there. 60 seconds - you can
do that. It doesn't take but
about one minute to clean a
toilet. Run a brush around the
rim and in the bowl.
Whip out some all-purpose
wipes and go over the exterior
surfaces and floor around the

I.D. IT - Make laundry day
less of a chore by placing a
storage cube for each member
of the family next to the dryer.
As clothes are folded, place
them in the correct cube for
each family member. This
makes sorting quicker, and
each family member can pick
up his or her own laundry.
RECYCLE - Repurpose a
metal garden-hose holder
(available at a home-supply
store or garden center) by
bringing it inside and using it
as a cookbobk'ioldern-perfect-
for large cookbooks. it can
even be mounted on the wall
with the accompanying hard-
ware and costs a fraction of
what you would pay for a tra-
ditional cookbook holder. Julia
ELECTRIFYING - If you are
on your way out the door and
are having static problems, just
grab a metal hanger and rub it
between you and the article of
clothing. The hanger will
remove the static electricity.
DRESS-UP - Instead of buy-
ing fancy and expensive coat
raci's, try this unique idea:
Collect antique doorknobs,
hooks and handles, and mount
them to a board to make a con-
versation piece coat or hat
hanger for the home. Melissa
EASY FIX - To fix a punc-
tured hose, insert a round,
wooden toothpick into the
hole. The wood will swell from
the moisture and fill the hole,
thus eliminating the leak.
Another option is to patch the
hole with chewed chewing
gum, which permanently seals
the hole when it hardens. Don

by CHARLES COOPER
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You need to
maintain your professional decorum at work.
Leave what is happening at home right where
it belongs. Later in the week, you sort things
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Money is an
issue this week between you and your mate.
You're upset at what you see as undue holiday
extravagance. Relax; things get better after the
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) No one can take
advantage of you without your permission.
Stop letting that certain co-worker get over on
you. Once you put your foot down, you gain
the respect you deserve.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You're tied up
in knots over the coming holidays. Don't push
yourself so hard. Family members are ready
and eager to.pitch in.
LEO (July 23 to August 22.1 A holiday bonus
you'd been expecting is taken off the table.
Instead of whining about it, readjust your
budget. You counted too much on what you
didn't actually have in hand.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Avoid
the temptation to stick your nose Into some-
one else's business. While you feel you have
the solution for this person, it's taken as med-
dling. Focus on your own interests.

overhear a conversation which isn't flattering
to you. Avoid confronting the perpetrators.
These are people who just love to indulge in
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
You're all wound up as the week begins. Try to
take a deep breath and prioritize. This week-
end, you play catch-up.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
21) Your concentration is off this week. That's
fine since everyone can have an off week. Co-
workers are happy to come to your aid.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
While you have a very specific idea in mind
concerning the holidays, family members
aren't cooperative. Instead of dictating, get
everyone's input. By week's end, you all come
to a mutually satisfactory agreement.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 181
Things aren't going as smoothly as you'd like,
both at work and at home. Ride out this rocky
time. Some around you are just a bit over-
wrought and need to work it through.
. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You're a
bit insecure in the romance department. Try
not to force the issue. This could have the
opposite effect you want.

"boats," except in some formal documents.
The term, U-Boat, is sometimes used for
German submarines in English.

Submariners are among the most heavi-
ly cross-trained personnel in the U.S. mili-
tary. Each must know how to do everyone
else's job in case of an onboard emergency.
A nuclear-reactor operator, for example,
also must know how to fire a torpedo, send
a radio message, contain a leak or trace an

Submarines often are referred to as "The
Silent Service" because they operate surrep-

The first U.S. submarine was used - not
very successfully - in the Civil War era. By
1900, the Navy had a version that held six
crew members and had a 45-horsepower
steam engine. It dove to a depth of 75 feet.
By comparison, modern subs are nuclear-
powered, hold more than 100 crew mem-
bers, and can travel more than 800 feet
below the sea's surface - the precise depth
