Boat parking
is studied in
Atlantic Beach
After some contention, the
Atlantic Beach city commission
decided that boat parking will
be re-examined at the next
strategic planning meeting.
Current regulations restrict
boats from being parked on a
residential lot any closer than 15
feet from the front property line
or any street side property line,
according to a report from
Community Development
Director Sonya Doerr.
Commissioner Dezmond
Waters requested that these reg-
ulations be re-examined because
he has received complaints from
citizens regarding people work-
ing on boats in their front yards.
Mayor Don Wolfson asked
Waters how many complaints
he has received. Waters said he
has received approximately six
in the last year.


Alcohol may not be sold to
anyone under the age of 21.

UUp gui ly
Atlantic Beach police officers
conducted an underage alcohol
sales inquiry and discovered
that several stores were selling
alcohol to minors, according to
a report from City Manager Jim
In November, police officers
sent minors in to 11 different
convenience stores and gas sta-
tions with no identification to
test whether the minors were
able to purchase alcohol.
Out of the 11 stores investi-
gated, clerks in six establish-
ments were cited with the sale of
alcohol to minors, according to
the report.
S"When you get 50 percent of
stores selling alcohol to minors,
there's a serious problem going
on," Hanson said,
The police department can
make cases against individuals
for the sale of alcohol to minors
but only the state can revoke a
store's business license to sell
alcohol, he explained.
The Bureau of Alcohol and
Tobacco officials will not pursue
an administrative case for revo-
cation of a license unless there
have been three violations,
according to the report.
In a follow-up deployment a
month after the initial one,
police sent minors to 20 stores,
bars and restaurants, according
to the report. Minors were able
to purchase alcohol at three
places during the second
deployment. However, one of
those businesses, Citgo Gas
Station, had been cited in the
first investigation, police said.
"The enforcement will contin-
ue on our part," Police Chief
David Thompson said.
One concern, Hanson said, is
that store owners only fire or
reprimand the clerks and that
does not always solve the bigger
Commissioner Mike Borno
suggested the city
pursue matters with the state so
that more action can be taken
against the business.

Space forrent

The controversy surround-
ing the arrival of Home Depot
has died down in Jacksonville
Beach but work is slow to pick
up at the store's future site in
the South Beach Regional
Shopping Center, leaving
some merchants struggling to
make ends meet.
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff
Tuesday said demolition of
the existing KMart building to
accommodate the, new Home
Depot is pending the con-
struction of a barrier wall to
block the sound. *
"We have plans in review
right now but they need to
build the wall first," he said.
"It needs'to be manufactured.
They are waiting on delivery
then it is just a matter of
Construction will begin
once a 12-foot concrete and
panel screen wall is in place as
a buffer between the store and
the adjacent medical complex.
The City Council in October
voted unanimously to amend
the center's Planned Unit
Development agreement to
allow Home Dep6t to raze the

Talks start Jan. 16

The .,Neptune 'Beach City
Council Monday decided that
it will enter into mediation
talks with the owners of
Lakeshore Village Shopping
Center, where a Wal-Mart was
Those t'lks will be private
and the mayor, city manager
and city attorney will represent
the city, but have no authority
to make any agreement.
Mediation talks are sched-
uled to begin Jan. 16.
City attorney Chris White
said state law permits the
closed mediation, which is
intended to be a confidential
way to get disputes settled and
avoid litigation.
If more' than one elected offi-
cial were to attend the media-

tion talks, though, the state
Sunshine Law would trump the
mediation laws and the media-
tion talks could not be closed,
White said.
In the end, however, any-
thing that is discussed will be
brought to the rest of the coun-
cil for consideration and
-approval, White said, creating
a "bastardized type of media-
tion." He explained that no
decisions can be finalized by
city officials during the closed
door mediation process.
The special magistrate, who
held a public hearing on Wal-
Mart's request to open a store
in Neptune Beach, recom-
mended the mediation process
be pursued regarding the city's
denial of a proposed Wal-Mart
at 630 Atlantic Boulevard.
While all councilors agreed
to move forward with the
mediation, Councilor Eric
Pardee did request a cost analy-
sis to determine how much
money the city has spent in
dealing with this issue.
"It would be beneficial for us
to know," Councilor Fred Lee'
White said later that media-
tion should lead to either a set-
tlement or an impasse.

Gail Spratt Cooper, who has also designed Dancin in the Streets
t-shirts, has used her artistic skills to paint a Jaguar cat "Kitten
of the Sea." The 85-pound fiberglass statue was painted to look
like a mermaid, with scales and sea creatures trailing along her
back and sides. Cooper has put in at least 150 hours painting
the cat, which will be placed in Neptune Beach at Town Center,
across from the cash machine near Sun Dog Diner. There will
be a special "unveiling" ceremony on Jan. 20 at 2 p.m. open to
the public.

Beatrice Velez helps one of her students adjust a crown that she created for the Three Kings
Days celebration Velez hosted at her home. Children from various schools learned about the
Spanish holiday and celebrated by making crowns, hearing stories and collecting grass in boxes
for camels in the symbolic arrival of the Three Kings.

Plans for Mayport Road proj-
ects should be finalized by
early 2007, with construction
work expected to begin in the
summer, according to Atlantic
Beach Public Works Director
Rick Carper.
The medians and road resur-
facing project are expected to
go out for bid in March
through the city of
Jacksonville, with construction
anticipated to begin in the
summer, according to Carper.
The project will improve
traffic safety and aesthetics,
said Edward Lucakovic, who is
a member of the Mayport
Waterfront Partnership and
works in the city of
Jacksonville Planning and
Development Department.
The medians will have a

"beachy" theme, Lucakovic
said, and improve traffic on
Mayport Road. There will be a
public workshop in city cham-
bers once the final concept is
complete, he said. The latest,
and most likely final concept,
will have palm trees, crape
myrtles and perennial peanut
as the ground covering.
There will be a median break
about every quarter mile and at
every signalized traffic light,
Carper said. This will limit the
number of traffic conflict
points by reducing the number
of left turns that can be made
across traffic,, he said.
"By reducing the number of
conflict points, you reduce the
, number of opportunities for
accidents," Carper said.
There will be three long
medians and then a number of
shorter ones in Atlantic Beach,
according to Carper.

The medians will restrict
access to some business and
residential driveways because a
driver will only be able to enter
and exit on the right. Also,
drivers will have to make u-
turns, rather than make left
turns across traffic, Carper said.
Traffic equipment will also
be improved on Mayport Road
and will include such features
as crosswalks with countdown
timers so that pedestrians
know when to cross the street
and how much time they have
to do so before the light
However, the traffic equip-
ment improvements are a sepa-
.rate project from the land-
scaped medians and resurfac-
ing, and the lighting projects
are not expected to begin until
2008, according to Carper.

Jacksonville Beach will be asked to show com-
pliance or face a forced sale.
Jacksonville Beach City Attorney Steve
Stratford Tuesday said he was prepping to file a
motion to have property owner Steve Roth fur-
nish documents and other information pertain-
ing to the last minute injunction filed in August
to block the auction of the property.
"[Roth] is playing a lot of games with the
city," Stratford said. "Unfortunately, they are
legal games so we have to stay in line with him."
City officials were hoping for an end to a six-
year odyssey surrounding the cottage and
duplex at 606, 608 and 610 2nd Street South
which were scheduled to be auctioned off last
summer on the front steps of the Duval County
Courthouse in Jacksonville.
Stratford said Roth's attorney, less than three
days before the auction, filed a motion to vacate
the default of a lien imposed by the city and set
aside all final judgments after Roth repeatedly
failed to correct numerous code violations.
City officials imposed a $122,000 lien against
the property on Aug. 26, 2003 which has racked
up a total of $24,871.76 in interest after Roth
failed to comply with orders to demolish the
structures, Stratford said.
The City Council also assessed $2,615.80
against Roth to cover the cost of boarding the
windows and doors of the buildings which, city
officials said, were becoming a haven for ram-
pant transient and criminal activity.
"It amazes me how the legal system can take
years and years for something that is relatively
simple," City Manager George Forbes said before
Christmas about the matter. "We are working
very hard on this."
Circuit Court Judge Peter J. Fryefield entered
his final judgment June 28, ordering Roth to pay
$160,0087.67 plus eight percent interest to sat-
isfy a lien imposed by the city over three years
Fryefield also ordered Roth to pay the city's
legal fees totaling $9,709.
Stratford said Roth claims to have taken steps
toward resolving the legal tug of war over the
property but "he totally failed to respond" to

the city's Dec. 4 motion seeking discovery of the
evidence by the end of the year.
"As of Dec. 31, Roth has done absolutely
nothing to comply with the Dec. 4 order,"
Stratford said. "He has provided no documenta-
tion whatsoever. Enough is enough"
The latest motion requests that the court
strike Roth's motion to dismiss the default and
order a new sale date of the property.
In the meantime, a hearing is set for Feb. 5 on
a motion filed by Roth's attorney asking he be
allowed to withdraw as counsel based on his
inability to communicate with his client.
"It certainly is a valuable piece of property,"
Forbes said. "We'd like to see this resolved as
soon as possible."
Problems with the property date back to
August, 2001 when it was first investigated by
police for illegal activity and substandard struc-
tural conditions, according to city records.
The city's police department responded to
numerous criminal violations including drug
sales, prostitution, fights and theft of electricity,
records show.
Roth has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing,
instead alleging by phone prior to a 2003 hear-
ing before the Code Enforcement Board that the
city was at fault for "a bunch of illegal things."

Compromise with state will

keep trees on Atlantic Blvd.

Crape myrtles which were to be removed from
a median in Atlantic Beach will now be
trimmed, according to Public Works Director
Rick Carper.
The Florida Department of Transportation
had directed the city of Atlantic Beach to
remove three crape myrtles along a median on
Atlantic Boulevard because the trees are
obstructing the view of a billboard.
A billboard owner complained that the trees
block the view of a sign on the Neptune Beach
side of the road.
There has to be a 500-foot sightline east and
west of the billboard, Carper told the commis-
sion at a meeting Monday. However, after

speaking to a state Department of
Transportation employee, Carper said the city is
now able to trim down the trees, which have
been there for seven years, rather than remove
them completely.
State law guarantees billboard owners the
right to unobstructed views of signs across state
roads, according to a report from City Manager
Jim Hanson.
Commissioner Dezmond Waters suggested
that the city should start a letter campaign
because a lot of money is spent to beautify
Atlantic Beach.
"This [the median] is running through the
heart of two cities. This is not rural land," he
Carper pointed out that the law is on the bill-
board owner's side and the city has to comply.

The Leader's Opinion

Gator win

a plus for

the area

The Florida Gator victory over the Ohio State
Buckeyes for the national championship sparked many
reactions most of them enthusiastic and positive in
this area so closely tied to the Gator Nation.
Ardent Gator fans were, of course, thrilled by the final
41-14 score. Anyone with blue and orange seemed to be
wearing it proudly the morning after the big game.
Even those who are not normally Gator enthusiasts
could take a little pride in the state's top showing.
The much touted boys from Old Florida made an
impressive showing at the game. An extra point of pride
was the fine showing by local Tim Tebow, last year's star
of the Nease High School football team.
Even those who rooted for anything but orange and
blue could see benefits here from the win as sports bars
and restaurants were busy, along with take-out eateries.
The game meant brisk sales for all associated businesses,
including sports merchandisers and others.
The game provided a nice bit of post-holiday cheer
and sparked substantial enthusiasm and good-natured
It was a good game and a lot of good fun.

Letter to thi'e editor:


Price of being an informed

stakeholder is a bargain

Stem cell debate is skewed Newspaper readers key part of democracy
Stem cell debate is skewed

To the editor:
The new Congress is put-
ting forward legislation to
divert taxpayer dollars
towards embryonic stem cell
research. The miracle cures
promised by some politicians
for embryonic stem cells are
the greatest example of hype
anid distortion since the
inanity surrounding Y2K
(year 2000) and prediction of
the coming apocalypse.
Many will remember the
words of Senator John
Edwards. before the last elec-
tion, "If we do the work that
we can do in this country, the
work that we will do. when
John Kerry is President, peo-
ple like Christopher Reeve are
going to walk, get up out of
that wheelchair and walk
again". This was not only cal-
lous politics at its worst, but
even Reeve's own researchers
have now admitted that the
promise of embryonic stem
cells has been grossly exagger-
ated and conclude that
"...stem cells from adult bone
marrow has significant
advantages in treatment of a
variety of neurological dis-
The media has disingenu-
ously portrayed the debate on
stem cells as one between pro-
gressive science and backward
ethics. This has distorted the
feebleness and sometimes
deceit of the scientific claims
made on behalf of embryonic
stem,cells and thereby misled
the public.
The fact is that adult stem
cells (harvested from adult
bone marrow, umbilical cords
etc) is proven, immensely
effective and embraces life.

Adult stem cells have been
used to successfully treat
more than 70 diseases so far.
Conversely, the success rate of
embryonic stem cell research
is zero----not a single disease
treated or cured, not even for
a mouse!
To make matters worse, 20
years ago we were told that
being able to grow any tissue
type desired from embryonic
stern cells was "an essential
first step". Despite tens of
millions of dollars and
decades of worldwide
research, this "first step" has
still not been achieved.
Indeed, one of the world's
preeminent and renowned
stem cell experts, Professor
Lord Winston recently stated,
I am not convinced that
embryonic stem cells will, in
my lifetime and possibly any-
body's lifetime for that mat-
ter, be holding, quite the
promise that we desperately
hope they will".
So why are people pushing
this seemingly false hope and.
doubtful "potential" at tax-
payer expense? Well, there
appear to be three types of
ardent advocate. Firstly,
executives of biotech firms
doing the research., For them,
it is not a question of morals,
but profits. The second group
is politicians who are used to
making. false and grandiose
promises for political 'gain.
.The last group is the most rep-
rehensible: those that are try-
ing to justify the destruction
of human embryos merely to
advance an ideology.

1) Who needs a newspa-
per when you've got the
Internet and television?
2) Isn't the idea of a twice-
weekly community newspa-
per outdated in this time of
global village and instant
access 24/7?
The questions are easy.
The answer to question
number one is everybody.
If you care about being an
informed citizen and fulfill-
ing your duty as an educated
participant in democracy
then the community newpa-
per is your only comprehen-
sive news source that covers
news about local events and
trends that directly impact
your home and family.
Newspapers promote
informed citizen discourse
and such discussion is vital
to democracy.
The answer to question
number two is no. A twice-
weekly community newspa-
per dedicated to covering
your neighbors and your
government is not outdated.
Good newspapers have long
been a linchpin of the com-
munities they serve- holding
a mirror up so all can see a
clear picture of what is going
on in our neighborhoods and
city halls warts and all.
Newspapers have been
dubbed watchdogs.
Traditionally they provide
the breadth of coverage no
one else bothers with and do
so, providing substance over
sizzle. Does it make newspa-
pers dull? Sometimes, but
please know that we try hard
to make reading a pleasure.
Having said that, we're
always mindful that credibili-
ty is a newspaper's greatest
asset and not to be traded for
the opportunity to irrespon-


sibly generate a quick buzz or
hot rumor. Not many blog-
gers will pledge the same.
Newspapers and newspaper
people have spent a vast
amount of time lately worry-
ing about what the future
might hold for newspapers.
As one publisher noted, I
don't want to be the last one
making buggy whips."
None of us do. We want
your newspaper to be an
informative, compelling read
that you look forward to
receiving. That is why we
continually strive to improve
the product, providing more
and better content in a more
attractive, user-friendly man-
But why should you the
reader care about any of
Because you are stakehold-
ers in the debate.
Newspapers matter.
Without a community-based
newspaper, who would give
you a complete picture of
what's going on at city hall,
the hospital, the schools, the
library, the parks.... ?

are available for inspection.

more each week, while
learning what others in the

a full-time job.

reporters know: A dedicated
staff of professionals spends
dozens of hours each week
canvassing the community
and asking questions to pro-
vide a compelling package of
information useful to you.
Could we do better' Yes,

in that direction. Let me

you think merits coverage.
If you value living at the

payoff is a community of

Height limit has been costly to JB

To the editor
I think it's time that the
property owners in
Jacksonville Beach understand
what the 35' height amend-
ment that became law after the
2004 general election has real-
ly done to our city.,
It wasn't until Bill Latham'
became mayor when that
Council decided what to do in
downtown Jacksonville Beach,
that Jacksonville Beach was
discovered again.
The city put in the infra-
structure and then let the rest
of the downtown redevelop-
ment up to entreprenurialship
of the free enterprise system
work. And work it did. Two
new hotels, Walgreen's,
Carrabba's, Sneakers and Joe's
Crab Shack all sprouted up,
with their own on site parking.
Then the Metropolitan build-
ing on 1st Street North, a com-
bination of retail, business
condos and residential condos,
a new building on the Proctor
Ace Hardware location, a com-
bination of residential and
retail and the soon to be office

condo at the corners of Beach
Blvd. between Third and
Second Streets. All of these
facilities have their own on-
site parking. Since it's unprof-
itable for a business venture to
be able to accomplish the same
kind of business facilities to a
restricted 35' height, the
downtown redevelopment has
come to a screeching halt.
Most of the time when a
change was made by Council
to the LDC (Land
Development Code); it went
into effect one year after the
final approval by Council, on
the second reading. This one
year hiatus gave the property
owner six months to complete
the permitting process and six
months after that to start con-
The 35' height amendment
went into effect one day after
the general election of 2004.
On that day the Council certi-
fied the results of the election.
The property owners were not
given the one year hiatus that
was the normal procedure.
Hence, the FLAW in that

This flaw in the amendment

$50,000,000 (that's fifty mil-

filed against the City and has

of dollars in legal fees, and the
legal fee clock is still ticking
If the city fails to settle these
lawsuits I see only three
options: declare bankruptcy,
assess all property owners or
increase taxes.
Now I know that I am going
to take a lot of flack because of
this letter, however, the First

The two-room depot at Pablo Historical Park is the oldest railroad terminal in Duval County, according to architectural
historian Sidney P. Johnston. The circa-1900 structure is constructed of heart pine and is painted chrome yellow.

Century-old structures in need,

of repair, BAHS director says
,-v. :- .. -

The Beaches Art Historical Society is
launching a fund raising drive to help
turn back the hands of time.
The society plans to restore a trio of
historic buildings in Pablo Historical
Park, Executive Director Holly Beasley
said last week.
According to Beasley, a combination
of age and the- elements has left the
century-old structures, including a
post office that dates to 1903 and train
depot that dates to 1900, in various
states of disrepair.
"The buildings are in fairly decent
shape. They are not in any danger of
falling down, but they need major
upkeep," Beasley said.
"The cost of maintenance and
preservation work is pretty expensive."
Wood rot is the major contributor,
Beasley said, especially along the roof
line of the train depot. The piers
beneath the circa 1900 section fore-
man's house are shifting, causing the
porch to slightly sag in spots and the.
handicapped ramp needs to be updat-
ed "to better meet today's codes," she
The structures on the three-block
historical campus in Jacksonville
Beach are also in need of repainting.
Beasley said she has applied for
$35,000 in matching state grant

Did you know?
The historic train depot at Pablo
Historical Park in Jacksonville Beach
has several interesting architectural
design features, such as 9-foot eaves
that once sheltered waiting passengers
and a. protruding, three-sided ticket
window. The depot is a living
reminder of Henry Flagler's ambitious
railway system, which helped develop
the entire east coast of Florida.
monies to complete the renovations.
Without the grant, she said the work
will be done on an as-needed basis
beginning with the depot.
"There comes a point in our long-
range plan when we have to address
these preservation issues," she said. "It
is our responsibility to do so. We will
have to move forward with that and
the depot is number one on our list."
While the post office is not in need
of major restoration, Beasley said
maintaining the historic structure is
paramount to preserving an important
piece of Beaches history. .
"Regular maintenance needs to be
done on any major structure at the
beach, even new construction," she
said. "It's that times 100 years. We are
just taking, this a step at a time, a
building at a time."
Beasley said h considerable amount
of work was done on the buildings

when they were moved to the proper-
ty in the 1980s, "but we must be able
to maintain that," she added.
Along with the exterior mainte-
nance, Beasley said funds are also
needed to help address some interior
issues in the foreman's house.
The age of the construction coupled
with a dated heating and cooling sys-
tem has left the two-story building
with cold and hot spots. Adding a
more modern system, she said, will
help redistribute the air flow,
The interior also needs to be
repainted, but Beasley said it has not
been decided whether to return the
walls to their original oil or wood
"We need to look at the overall
exhibition space to determine an
appropriate time and take it back with
the proper research of the chosen time
frame," she said.
"It is extremely important to local
history, not only to reflect life 100
years ago but to show how the com-
munity grew."
Beasley said the project is already
receiving attention and contributions
are beginning to trickle in. The funds
will be earmarked for -preservation
projects independent of the museum's
general fund. Donations can be sent to
the Beaches Area Historical Society,

Doctor offers food prep classes in Neptune Beach

While most people
understand that
whole grains, fruits,
and vegetables are part of a
healthy diet, it can often
prove difficult to incorporate
these foods into meals.
Jacksonville Beach physi-
cian, Andrea Schaeffer-Pautz,
M.D. said that she became
aware that some of her
patients did not know how to
prepare nutritious meals using
these foods. Pautz is board cer-
tified in Internal Medicine and
Holistic Medicine and prac-
tices at the Persephone
Healing Arts Center.
In the course of doing nutri-
tional assessments and coun-
seling in her practice, she said
that she saw that people "do
not eat the way we are sup-
posed to. They eat the wrong
foods and fast foods."
"What we now take for
granted as a normal day's fare

would have been considered
an extravagant feast by many
of our ancestors," she said.
"Whole grains were the pri-
mary staples of the world's
Whole wheat, corn, oats,
millet, barley, quinoa are
grains that add "a rainbow of
nutrients" to the diet.
However, it,s difficult for peo-
ple to know how to make
grains tasteful or to prepare a
variety of vegetables and
fruits, she said. As a result,
people are not getting the rec-
ommended minimum serving
of these foods.
About two years ago, Pautz
began offering classes as one
"concrete thing" she could do

to help her patients be more
successful in improving their
The classes "arose as a
need"and are about food
preparation, variety and cre-
ativity, not calorie counting or
for discussing medical issues,
she said.
Grains can be used in
casseroles, soups, and mixed
with vegetables for both hot
dishes and salads. Everyone
knows how to prepare meat,
she said, and the grain and
vegetable dishes she creates
can be served either with or
without meat.
Food preparation cannot
take forever but it is possible
to create reasonable and quick
dishes that are delicious, she
said. By adding fresh herbs, a
little cheese, or other ingredi-
ents, dishes made with whole
grains and vegetables can, be
"totally delicious."
While the food preparation
classes were initially for her
patients and their families,

Pautz said that the classes are
open to the public.
The next food preparation
class will be on Friday, Jan. 26,
at the Persephone Healing Arts
Center. The topic will be
Grain and Vegetable
Casseroles using all organic
The two-hour class will
begin at 5:30 p.m. and partici-
pants will have an opportuni-
ty to sample the dishes pre-
pared during the class.
Registration and information
is available at 246-3583; the
fee for the class is $75.

Silverberg observed renewed

They're Tebow's Gators now


Fresh off Monday's national
championship victory over
Ohio State, fans of the Florida
Gators are already dreaming of
multiple titles to come when
Tim Tebow takes over as quar-
terback next season.
Tebow, a freshman who
guided Nease High to a state
championship in 2005, was
hand-selected by Gators coach
Urban Meyer to run his
spread-option offense. The
6'3", 229-pound QB is a dual
threat with a cannon-like left
arm and powerful legs that
Meyer relied upon for tough
yards in spot duty throughout
the 2006 campaign.
But now, with a BCS title in
Florida's rearview mirror,
Tebow must move from the
realm of "potential" into the
arena of expectations from a
demanding Gator Nation.
"I'm going to have a lot of
time to prepare for that, and
it's going to be fun," Tebow
told USA Today after throwing
a one-yard TD pass and run-
ning for another score against
Ohio State.
"It's something to look for-
ward to. Just being on the
headsets this year, and trying
to visualize everything and see
the defenses from the sideline,
that helps you stay ready, too.
But it does get easier when
you get in the game."
Florida fans got tantalizing
glimpses of Tebow's potential,

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow fires a pass during warm-ups before last year's game against

Gators and Leak make statements

After Monday night's
mismatch in the BCS
championship bout out
in Arizona, the feeling here is
that the critics were right -
Michigan should have been in
the game. Maybe the
Wolverines could have.
stopped Florida. Ohio State
sure couldn't.
The Gators made the
Buckeyes look like Georgia
playing Florida. And we all
know the Bulldogs can't stop
the Gators with a court
So Urban Meyer has made a
fool out of those who said he
could win in lesser leagues,
but wait until the SEC gets
him. Well, the 2006 Florida
Gators proved they could
whip just about anybody.
Except, of course, Auburn.
The Gators rode over,
around and through the
Buckeyes, 41-14. The score
Monday night didn't tell the
whole story. After the first
half, the Buckeyes were as far
out of it as Michigan -
which didn't even make the

1, 1.,th


trip to the desert.
Late President Gerald Ford's
old team might have fared
better than Ohio State, which
put the outcome in doubt
only in the opening moments
when Ted Ginn, Jr. took the
kickoff and shot past the
Gators like he was riding a
missile. (By the way, nice
missed call on that holding
penalty during the return,
men in stripes.)
That 7-0 lead lasted only as
long as Florida's first at-bat.

The Gators, behind the crisp
passing of Chris Leak, took
the ensuing kick and method-
ically worked their way down
field to touchdown territory
almost as if the Buckeyes had
returned to the locker room
for a bathroom break.
At the end of the first quar-
ter it was 14-7. At the half it
was 34-14 and the Gators
never looked back, except to
view the carnage they had
The Glassy-eyes, er,
Buckeyes, especially coach Jim
Tressel, looked dazed almost
from the start. Tressel seemed
absorbed with reading a
paper, no doubt the glowing
predictions that his team
would roll to another nation-
al championship. Or perhaps
it was the Help Wanted sec-
Let's hear it for that
Georgia-slaying defense,
which continued its wrecking
ways to the BCS title game.
All season long acclaim was
heaped upon Florida's offense,
but Meyer's defense and its
speed was the key to success.

And the critics said UF
couldn't win big with Leak
behind center. They just had
to put him out to pasture and
install the young Nease phe-
nom, Tim Tebow. But by
craftily using both, Meyer
found the secret formula.
As good as the Gators teams
of the Steve Spurrier era were,
compared to this season's ver-
sion they looked almost like
The Buckeyes were unde-
feated and looked almost
invincible. Until they met
Florida. Old Buckeye Woody
Hayes must still be whirling
in his grave. If he'd been on
the sideline Monday night,
think of all the Gators he
could have socked.
Leak deserves all the praise
he is receiving because he led
his team to the title. He
should go down with the
greatest of modern-day quar-
terbacks, Peyton Manning,
Tom Brady, Byron Leftwich.
They say this Gators team
could beat the Jacksonville
Jaguars. Then again, that's not
really saying much, is it?

Gators won national title, but will they lose their teeth?

Question: Dr. Smith, when
was Gatorade invented at
the University of Florida?
Answer: In 1965, Florida
physician Robert Cade began
studying the effects that dehy-
dration had on Gator football
players. During strenuous
workouts, games, and practice
it was found that the body
levels of sodium, water, and
sugar dropped.
Dr. Cade began to devise a
potion that would rapidly
raise these levels back to nor-
"Cade's Cola" as it was origi-
nally called, was first used
during a Gator game at Florida
Field in 1965.
At first it was not an over-
whelming success, simply
because the players didn't
readily take to the taste. Dr.
Cade's wife suggested some
lemon-lime flavoring and
"Gatorade" was invented.
The first full season that
Gatorade was used was 1966,
the year that Steve Spurrier
won the Heisman Trophy.
Unfortunately, the doctors


couldn't take any credit for
that, for Spurrier preferred to
drink Coca-Cola during the
Today, Gatorade sales total
about $2.3 billion per year.
The University of Florida
receives about $6 million, and
Dr. Cade and his colleagues
who helped invent it, also
share a large royalty check.
With the money, they fund 30
scholarships to the University
of Florida each year, and have

helped finance organ trans-
plants for indigent patients.
Of course, the most impor-
tant part of their research was
for the need for rehydration
during exercise.
The best way to do this is
with water, but the additional
sodium and carbohydrates
found in Gatorade are of ben-
For more on this topic, read
Gatorade, Part II
Now, as we have just dis-
cussed, there are benefits
which can be achieved by
drinking Gatorade. Again, the
carbohydrates help maintain
or replace stores that are lost
during exercise.
However, according to a
new study, Gatorade is quite
hard on the teeth. In fact, it
was shown to erode teeth
faster than Coke.
The study was conducted by

researcher Leslie A. Ehlen, a
student at the University of
Iowa School of Dentistry and
was presented recently at the
annual meeting of the
American Association for
Dental Research in Orlando.
Researchers soaked teeth in
test tubes filled with regular
Coke, Diet Coke, Gatorade,
Red Bull, or 100 percent apple
juice. After 25 hours, the teeth
were examined under a micro-
Enamel erosions were seen
on all of the teeth studies, but
Gatorade was found to be the
most corrosive, followed by
Red Bull, Coke, Diet Coke and
apple juice.
This study contrasted a 2002
Ohio State University study of
304 athletes which found no
link between sports-drink use
and dental erosion. The study
was sponsored by Quaker
Oats, which makes Gatorade.

tine work?
A. Creatine is an amino
acid, which is stored by the
muscle as an energy unit
called phosphocreatine.
During exercise, this energy
unit is broken down, fueling
muscle contractions. This fuel
is naturally replaced from ani-
mal meats that you consume
and through production by
your body.
Taking creatine supplements
can help replace these stores,
and with proper exercise, crea-
tine can also boost increases
in muscle mass.
Creatine supplements have
long been taken by body
builders and football players
in order to increase their mus-
cle mass. Taking creatine
alone will not tend to lead to
an increase in muscle mass -
exercise is important.
.Creatine supplements come
in many forms and can be
found in health food stores,

and some groceries and phar-
The amount taken is based
on body weight, and taking
mega-doses does not help.
No long-term studies on
potential side effects of crea-
tine have been done. Before
starting a creatine program,
you should talk to your doc-

Irish. mouths are smiling
after tasting a tempting fare
at Culhane's Irish Pub,
including their most raved
about "Corned Beef and
Cabbage". Culhane's ver-
sion of this classic features
thin-sliced brisket served
with cabbage sauteed in gar-
lic bacon and caramelized
onions. Champ mashed
potatoes complete this
mouth watering dish.
While not a traditional
Irish meal, corned beef and
cabbage has been an integral
part of Irish-American cul-
ture, which the Culhane sis-
ters, originally from
Limerick, Ireland, include in
their cuisine. It was devel-
oped when Irish immigrants
in the eastern United States
used corned beef from Jewish

butchers instead of
pork in their tradi-
tional dish of bacon
and cabbage -
because of the lower
cost and scarcity of
food sources.
Culhane's recom-
mends slow cooking
S the brisket with
chopped onions,
carrots and celery in
a roasting pan. The
brisket is mixed
with one part Guinness Stout
and two parts water enough
to cover the roast, then coat
the top of the brisket with
ground cloves and add dry
mustard to the broth. The
brisket is covered and cooked
to an internal temperature of
200 degrees.
