'Night Eyes' keeps tabs on homes
by LIZA MITCHELL
The Jacksonville Beach Police Department is
keeping a sharp eye on businesses and homes
in the city with a program designed to stop
criminal activity before it happens.
"Night Eyes" is a community watch service
initiated by officers patrolling the city.
Sgt. Tom Bingham said the officers select a
business at random in between calls for service
and check to make sure the property is secure.
A card is left to notify the owners of the date
and time of the inspection. If any suspicious
activity is noted during a stop, the owners are
Bingham said the program has also proved to
be an effective way to control car break-ins that
often occur in neighborhoods or side streets
with a large volume of cars parked in the right
"That's where the majority of the burglaries
come from. Doors are left unlocked or the key
is left somewhere on the vehicle," Bingham
said. "People go through neighborhoods or lust
walk down the street and try doors until one
opens. They don't want to draw attention to
themselves by smashing the windows."
Many vehicle burglaries also occur at beach
end zones where surfers are often observed
stashing their car keys on the vehicle.
"They think they are hiding it but they
aren't," Bingham said. "They are making it
easy to break in their car or worse steal it alto-
Garage doors, gates left open can also invite
criminal activity, he said, because people can
get lazy or think that type of crime won't hap-
pen to them.
"It doesn't matter if you live in 18th Avenue
North or 36th Avenue South. It can happen
anywhere. If you leave your garage open for a
cat or a dog, people are able to get under there,
too," Bingham said.
"It's amazing the amount of burglaries that
could be prevented if people just locked their
doors. We are just trying to get that message

Hearing held in Southern Waterview case
by LIZA MITCHELL
An ongoing property rights case against
the city of Jacksonville Beach may be clos-
er to resolution after the developers of a
proposed high -rise development revised
their motion for relief.
A hearing was held Thursday morning at
the Duval County Courthouse to consider
an amended motion for summary judge-
ment in the case of Southern Waterview
The amendment contends that the
plaintiff should be allowed to construct its
development according to the height
restrictions that were in place at the time

Quinn selfless helper
To the editor:
This is a tribute not only to a
great patriot, but also to what I
believe is the most selfless,
dedicated helper .of his fellow
man that I have eyvr met -
John T. (Jack) Quinn,; who
passed away on Christmas Eve.
He was also a good golf partner
and an extremely loyal friend.
Jack loved his country and,
his God, and he served both
with devotion and distinction.
He graduated from West Point
in 1952, served in both Korea
and Vietnam, and had a distin-,
guished military career. ..
Moreover, there was a special
place in his heart for those
who had served, fought and
died in the defense of this
country. Every Memorial Day
he honored those men and
women through his public
utterances and writings.
Equally as impressive was his
second career, here at the
Beaches, with the St. Vincent
dePaul Society. His was a full-
time job during which he'
helped the less fortunate of the
Beaches communities with'
such things as furnishings,
food and even rent. These
efforts touched and benefited
the lives of so many people.,
Jack's world here at the
Beaches is a much better place'
because he was here. We shall
all miss him greatly.

To the editor:
I must commend The Leader
for doing a story on dog obedi-
ence at the beach. However, I
would suggest that your staff
writer do a little homework
prior to writing such a piece,
especially when many people
could be influenced by the fact
S that the story was large, and
You see, the dog training
business in America is not cut
and dry. Just because you have
a certificate from some train-
ing school does not make one
* a good dog trainer. In fact, in
many cases one can obtain
such a certificate just by pay-
ing a fee and answering a cou-
ple of questions.
And who on earth certified
those supposed training
schools to begin with? There
are no rules, regulations or
whatever to govern dog train-
' ers. Hence, anyone can claim
to be a dog trainer, especially if
'they'have a certificate to back
-their claim. So why even men-
tion that a trainer is certified,
as such a statement can indeed
Now think about this. Some
supposed dog trainers, to
include local trainers,' teach
that obedience for dogs is
taught by using food rewards. I
would suggest to you that such
thinking is ignorant.
Obedience is not a trick.
Obedience is what your dog
does out of respect for you as
S the leader of the pack. No
wonder it could take some
trainers several months to
teach something so simple as
to not bite the leader. Ouch!
And just for the record,
many supposed trainers who
use food rewards also make
their clients use "pinch col-
lars." Yea, I know those are
now called "pressure collars"
but the simple fact of the mat-
ter is that the thing was origi-
. nally called a pinch collar and
it was designed to control
extremely aggressive, very
large attack dogs and not your

Hence, I would suggest to
one and all that food rewards
and pinch collars are just a
crutch for bad technique.
If the reporter had done any
homework, he would never
have suggested that six lessons
(only five for the dogi for $65
is "nominal." A simple call to
Fletcher High School would
have led to learning that you
can get dog training there via
their Community Education
program for $40 and your dog
can get eight lessons.
And food rewards and pinch
collars are not taught there.
Those classes are also 10 stu-
dents per class or less so that
people can get much more
time with the instructor. It
should also be noted that the
instructor at Fletcher is giving
back to the community where
he actually lives.
Now let's address this situa-
tion where supposed trainers
offer "puppy classes," "adult
clas'ses"'and mo're:ltfyou check
with Fletcher, they will tell you
that they only offer one class
for all dogs.
You see, at Fletcher the dog
owner is doing the learning
and if the dog owner is doing
the learning, then there, is no
need for additional classes for
I personally believe that
trainers who offer puppy class-
es, adult classes, etc. are rip-
ping people off. After all, if you
would teach the owner during
the first course, why on earth
would you need to repeat it?
Perhaps it is because you
only tried to teach the dog.
Teach the owner the first time
and save your money. At the
class mentioned in The Leader
story, one has to pay twice -
once as a puppy and then
again as an adult, equaling
$130 - and at Fletcher, one
can learn for just $40 and take
only one course.
So I must ask the reporter,
where is the "nominal" with
the $130 suggested course?

The debatewill long rage
about what the greatest inven-

Was it the wheel, sliced

Was it something intangible
like the merging of Rhythm
and Blues and Country Music
which created Rock and Roll?
The verdict is still out on that.
But the judgment is in on the .
worst invention ever!
It has to be those birthday
cake candles that light back;
up after you blow them out!
Why in the world would
you tell a little 5 year old kid
to make a wish and blow out
his candles, if you'd bought
those stupid things!.
"Remember son, the wish
won't come true unless you
blow all of the candles out!"
"OK Daddy, whoooosh! Yay
I blew them all out, now I'll
get my... Oh no they lit back
up! Waaaah Waaaah!"
There are sensitive parents
who know how traumatic it
would be to a child at' such a
delicate age to have their
young hopes and dreams
dashed by such candle trick-
ery. So they wait until the kid
is at the obnoxious age of 12
to do it. "Sean, the pressure's
on. All your friends are here
and our new neighbors Mr.
f. Wle'and Miss'Diahhe! What

Next, Sean's little 3 year old
sister gets held up to the cake.
"I bet Daddy's little girl can do
the trick! Come on Ashley.
Show 'em how it's done!"
"Here I go Daddy! WHOOO
(Splatter Splatter) OOOSH!"
There is just so much mois-
ture any fire can take before
it's extinguished.. Finally we
were ready for the cake to be
cut. The birthday boy protest-
ed "Aw Mom, I'd like a bigger
piece than that!"
His friends all yelled in uni-
son "me too!"
Then Mom smiled over at
* her new neighbors. "Now I'm
sure the Dempseys would like
a piece! If I cut it that big..."
My wife interrupted "Please
it's Sean's Birthday. Give him
and his friends as big a piece
as they want! I insist!"
I jumped in "I doubly insist
they get an even bigger piece
than they want!! While the

Not a minute too soon, my

touched", not to mention all
of the kids who had "barely

and women's titles at the second
of this season's Beaches Fine Arts
Series sprint triathlons.
McLarty, a member of the
University of Florida swim team,
won the event in 52:57. The

"I would have been shocked
it I wasn't the first one out of
the water because I haven't met
another triathlete vet who
comes from quite the swimming
background my family has,"
said McLarty, who specializes in
the 400-meter individual medley
for the Gators.
McLarty's 23-year-old sister,
Sara, is a member of the
National Teams Program for elite
triathletes. She lives and trains at
the Olympic Training Center in
Colorado Springs, Colo.
Fletcher head coach Joe
Reynolds picked up his 100th
career football win Sept. 8.
As for his victory Saturday,
Dustin McLarty chalked .it up to
two factors: Terrific conditions
, and the absence ot perennial
BFAS champion Danny
"I've always been the fust one
out of the water even during the
Domingo Era," he said with a
laugh. "It was usually during the,
bike race that he'd overtake me.
"Today I saw him out on the
course, just sitting there as a
spectator. He waved at me right
about at the point he usually
blows by me on the bike

off from the sprint triathlon
series but may return to conm-

Levine and his players also

Now, the good news: The
game didn't count.
Fletcher (8-3 in 2005) was in
a classic rebuilding mode this,
season, with fewer than a
dozen seniors on the roster.
But the Senators could have
been a team to be reckoned
with in District 2-5A if.they
could have ironed out a few
wrinkles here and there.

which leads to inactivity and

to more joint pains, and so

bones not forming as strongly
as they could, which increases
the risk for fractures.
Furthermore, if an over-

Once Fletcher posted its total of

ish to see if the score would be
bettered. Only Leon managed to
unseat the Senators.
W th an attitude of,
'Once we're in the
final four anything
can happen,' the Nease High
girls\ volleyball team advanced
to the state semifinal round
with a four-game victory over
Groveland South Lake Nov. 2.
The Panthers downed the vis-
Iting Eagles, 25-18, 25-21, 26-
28, 25-17', to win the Class 4A
Region 3-4A final.
Nease's final point, an
emphatic kill by junior outside
hitter Paige DePriest, touched
off an exuberarit celebration as
the team equalled its furthest
voyage into the postseason.
"It still hasn't hit me that we
actually w'on yet," said senior
middle blocker Laura Phillips.
"It's surreal. It's awesome. We're
all stoked that we set this as a
goal and we achieved it."
A fter,his team went up 21-
/- 17 late i..the fourth quar-
A Ate4, of the Class 4A state
championship game at Dolphin
Stadium Dec. 9, Nease High
football coach Craig Howard
was an emotional wreck.
Time, not Tampa Plant and
its record-setting quarterback,
Robert Marve, was Howard's
worst enemy down the stretch,
and he knew it.
"You have just scored what
you think may be the go-ahead
touchdown and you're looking
at the clock and it doesn't seem
to be going fast enough,"
Howard reflected Saturday after
his top-ranked team fell to
Plant 25-21 in the title game.
"Your stomach is in a knot,
[penalty] flags are flying around
and they [Plant] have an
offense that can score and
enough time to do it.
"They're one play away from
winning it and we're one play
away from stopping it."
Nease couldn't make that
defining stop. -
Marve, who eclipsed three
state passing records during the
game, made a perfect throw to
teammate Derek Winter for the
winning score with 17 seconds
to play to snap Nease's 23-game
winning streak and lift Plant to
its first state title in school his-
No. 1 Nease, the defending
state champion, finished 14-1.
"Marve and his receiving
corps were really sharp," added
Howard, whose team led all
Jacksonville-area public schools
in total offense this season.
"He got it done and we have
to take our hats off to him. But
even after they scored, we had a
chance to win it. What gets lost
in the shuffle is that we lost the
state championship game after
a brilliant performance."
Nease rallied from a 17-0
deficit to lead 21-17 with 3:02
* After Plant (15-0) retook the
lead 25-21 on a 12-play, 78-yard
scoring drive that included a 2-
point conversion pass, Nease
had 17 seconds left to write an
alternate ending to a storybook
season that included a school-
record 14 wins.
The script featured a Cal-
Stanford-like kickoff return to
the Plant 23. But needing a
touchdown to win, Howard
knew his quarterback would
have to buy some time in the
pocket before his receivers got
open in the end zone.
Plant linebacker Patrick Carter
would have none of that.
The junior sacked Nease
quarterback Ted Stachitas for a
4-yard loss as time expired.
"There's three seconds left
and they put a blitz on and we
never get the play off," Howard
said Saturday as he waited to
board the team bus home.
"\We just wanted to get
receivers in the end zone and if
the pass was incomplete, well at
least we tned. I'm real proud of
our kids. They showed charac-

according to Spencer.
Since the afterlife played
such a key role in their cul-
ture, the Egyptians provided
the tools you used in the
present to carry you through
the afterlife. A scribe would
be buried with writing tools
and anything else he may
need in his afterlife.
"These were sacred
objectss" Spencer added.
Spells were also provided
in the book of the dead,
which has some of its
papyrus pages on display in
the exhibit, to navigate
through the afterlife, which
was full of monsters, croco-
diles and evil, according to
In keeping, with the theme
of Egyptian custom and cul-
ture, students from several
Beaches schools were educat-
ed on the subject and pro-
duced art work to replicate
Egyptian drawings and sculp-
tures, which is also on dis-
play in the museum.
Their work is part of an
outreach program, Future
Artists of the Beaches (FAB)
Fest, that the museum spon-"
sors every year to encourage
elementary students to
appreciate the value of art
and get them involved,
Stiller fails to follow Allen's footsteps
n last week's
critic Lisa Schwarzbaum
said of. so-called "harmless"
kids' movies, "Why should

Her comment repeatedly
came to mind as I watched
"Night at the Museum," a
slam-bang comedy that
explains its every gag for the
benefit of any audience
member who can't be both-
ered to follow its pedestrian
The movie's first few
scenes are bald exposition to
establish the character of
Larry Daley, played by Ben
Stiller in his. usual manners
of urban-neurotic tics and
utter cluelessness. Larry is a
divorcee who can't hold a
steady job and is slowly
alienating his young son.
This characterization is laid
out in several scenes that
are so forlorn as not to gar-
ner a single laugh.
In a last-ditch effort, Larry
takes a dead end job as a
security guard at a natural-
history museum. The retir-
ing guard (Dick Van Dyke,
who hasn't had a decent
movie' role in at least 30
years) gives Larry some cryp-
tic warnings about the
museum's nightly goings-
The meaning of those
warnings becomes painfully
clear when the museum's
varied still-life figures
(dinosaurs, lions, etc.) come
to life at sundown. The spe-
cial effects are realistic
enough and should evoke
some kind of laughter or
benign terror. But the whole
setting is presently so lack-
adaisically that, after Ben
Stiller skitters around cor-
ners a few times, one is
tempted not to laugh but to
Many of the'human fig-
ures come to.life, too. But
their scenes resemble any
episode of "Bewitched"
where Samantha accidental-

ure into the 20th century.
Robin Williams is positively
strait-jacketed in his role as
Teddy Roosevelt. He's so
constrained by his stiff cos-
tume and forced smile that
you barely recognize him.
And Stiller crony Owen
Wilson does more of his
cute-beatnik routine, only
here he's trying to embody
an Old West cowboy (in a
role lifted straight from
"The Indian in the
Cupboard," a far superior
As with most recent come-
dies directed by Shawn Levy
("Cheaper by the Dozen,"
"The Pink Panther"), the
characters don't begin to be
plausible, even on the
movie's own farcical terms.
Character traits pop up long
enough to be milked for
gags; then they're forgotten
once the movie rushes to its
The supporting cast look's
lost. A lot of heavy hitters
("The Office's" Ricky
Gervais, "Spy Kids" mom
Carla Guginol are brought
in to stand around and be
half-written characters in
service to the star.
And what is it about Ben
Stiller, anyway? People seem
to regard him as some kind
of comic genius, but all I see
is a man trying to follow in
the footprints that Woody
Allen left behind him long
One wants to extend some
goodwill to "Night at the
Museum," because some
obvious effort was put into
it, and heaven only knows
how the special effects all
came together. But as with
most latter-day comedies,
Hollywood always puts the
story in service of'the
effects, rather than vice
"Night at the Museum" is
rated PG for minor adult

Make some New Year's
resolutions for your home
F ew things fall by the way-
side after the New Year
faster than needles on a
Christmas tree than personal
So, instead of making a res-
olution to exercise, cut calo-
ries, stop smoking or other
things you know have failed
in the past, resolve to make
some changes at home.
These resolutions are more
likely to stick - and be good
for everyone in the house,
Do the right thing
One of the first New Year
resolutions you could make
this year for your home is to
go a little greener.
This could include setting
up a recycling center in your
home or making a greater
effort at recycling items such
as newspapers and magazines,
glass, plastic, and cans.
Home centers carry large
stacking bins that you can
place right 'next to the garage
door and will help you sort
and hold your recyclables.
Doing right by your house
also means doing right by the
Making a few simple
changes like recycling and
changing your light bulbs to
fluorescent bulbs is good for
the earth - and your utility
bills. It's a green thing.
Yes, you've heard me say it
before, but clutter is a huge
problem and when you ask
most people what their No. 1
household problem is, they'll
tell you it's clutter.
\Ve continue to buy and
buy and that makes our
homes stuffed to capacity and
barely livable. Make a resolu-
tion to spend a small amount
of time on a regular interval
(say, daily) to throw some-
thing away, recycle, or donate.
You know you have stuff
just hanging around the
house that you don't use any-
by KATE WORTH
CONSOLATION PRIZE - My
children love to play board
games. However, the loser is
always disappointed, especially
when it's the youngest child.
To cheer him up, I give out a
little treat, such as a little
candy bar. That way, he doesn't
mind losing so much. In fact,
I'm 'beginning to suspect he
sometimes deliberately throws
the game! Mandy D.
HAMBURGER HELPER - The
best burgers are made with
chuck as opposed to sirloin or
ground round. They're just
juicier and tastier. However,
you don't need to worry so
much about the extra fat since
it cooks out during broiling or
grilling. To keep them juicy, try
to avoid handling them so
much, doing so only gently.
Whatever you do, don't press
them with a spatula as they're
cooking. Amelia K.
* a 0
SPACE SAVER - To increase
freezer space and keep it from
getting overly stuffed, freeze
your meatballs, sauces, stews,
etc., in plastic, zipper-type
bags. Be sure to press out all
the air before pressing them
flat. Then you can stack them.
Also be sure to label every-
thing. Rita B.
OOPS! - If someone acciden-
tally drops an egg on the floor,
cover it with salt and let it set
for about two minutes. The salt
will absorb most of the egg,
which will make it easier to
clean up. \Vilma L.
PLAY TIME - My 8-year-old
daughter loves to play with her
bead crafts kit. I always lay the
beads out on a baking sheet
first. This way, they don't roll
off the table and get lost. Edna

Resolution to improve
Topping the list of my
favorite things to do at home
is to make annual goals for
my house. These goals range
from mulching landscape
beds, to painting a room or
even redecorating or buying a
new piece of furniture. I write
down all the things I want to
do on my list going from
smallest or least expensive
down to the largest, most
labor intensive or most expen-
sive. That list usually lives on
the refrigerator door and it's
amazing how great it feels to
scratch those items, one by
one, off my list.
If possible, make resolutions
that will improve your quality
of life. These can include an
item such as a new mattress -
especially when you consider
that one third of your life is
spent in bed - a quality mat-
tress makes sense.
Some of the home improve-
ments I've been happiest
about include my pull-out
trash can that I installed
under the sink, the television
that we put in the kitchen so I
don't have to miss the
evening news while I make
dinner, and every single
organizing item I have ever
installed because they make
things easier to find, look
neater, and make me more
This pull-out trashcan gets the trash out of sight and makes it easy to use with its simple, one-step pull-out feature. To make, I pur-
chased a pull-out trash can fixture at my local home center for about $40. removed the cabinet door myself and affixed it with
spacers to the pull-out mechanism, saving me over $150 on the cost of a door-mounted pull-out.
