A plan to add wider sidewalks, protect-
ed bike lanes and a series of roundabouts
will improve safety and aesthetics along a
portion of Penman Road if the county is
able to secure funding to complete the $10
million project.
City of Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton
Monday said Jacksonville Beach officials

Last week, traf-
fic engineer Ian
Lockwood with the urban design firm
Glatting Jackson unveiled a preliminary
concept design for Penman Road.
Lockwood said the design was tailored
to accommodate the varying width of the
available right of way and address safety,
drainage, aesthetics issues as well as the
lack of pedestrian-friendly facilities.
Many of the proposed changes would
encourage more pedestrian activity and
-reduce the amount of concrete.
City Councilman Lee Buck pressed
Peyton during a meeting of the Beaches
Business Association Monday to consider
implementing a. design phase "to get
things going."
""I know it takes a long time to get
things on the drawing board," he said.
"I'm urging you on behalf of the city."
Said Peyton, "It's not that we don't
think it's doable. It's just going to take a lot
of coordination."


Shetter limerock

Penman detour

draws criticism

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Construction along Shetter Avenue is
creating unsafe conditions for motorists
and limiting access to several city facili-
ties.
Resident Jim Overby chided "whoever
was responsible" for closing the southern
leg of Penman Road before construction
on Shetter Avenue was complete.
The city's police headquarters, dog
park and athletic fields are all located at
the southern end of Penman Road, a por-
tion of which is closed to tie into the
existing DOT drainage system.
Access to the area is now via Shetter

Beekeeper to share nature's mysteries

during free program at PV library


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
Sam Van Leer of Ponte
Vedra has been helping his
neighbors' gardens look beau-
tiful for years.
But he hasn't had to lift one
garden tool his honey bees
do all the work for him.
At the back of his property
in Old Palm Valley, off
County Road 210, the retired
school administrator keeps
four hives containing thou-
sands of bees that pollinate
the neighborhood flowers
and vegetable gardens.
They also leave Van Leer
with plenty of sweet, all-natu-
ral honey.
"It's a great hobby, and you
help the whole neighbor-
hood," Van Leer said Tuesday.
At 2 p.m. Saturday, Van
Leer will reveal the secrets of
beekeeping at a presentation
at the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library.
The event is part of a

month-long promotion of the
arrival of Sue Monk Kidd,
author of "The Secret Life of
Bees," who will speak at the
UNF Lazzara Theater March 8.
The history of beekeeping
dates back hundreds of years,
and the methods and tools
used to extract honey from
the hives have changed a bit
over the years.
Van Leer said he's been at it
for 12 years, and he's still a
"neophyte."
But when he first started
keeping bees, at his home in
Atlanta, Ga., his first obstacle
wasn't the learning curve it
was his wife, Lolly
"I had to convince my wife
that beekeeping wasn't all
that bad, even though she's
allergic to bees," Van Leer said
with a laugh.
"She thought it was a plot
against her."
Van Leer said his first hive

seeking


AB land


use OK

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Selva Marina Country Club in
Atlantic Beach has submitted an
application to change the land
use on part of its golf course to
allow residential
development, Access is
according to proposed
Community from both
Development Mayport
Director Sonya Road and
Doerr. Selva
An informal Marina
design proposal Drive
has beEn estab-
lished, which would relocate the
existing golf course and develop
27.34 acres of the property with
approximately 100 residential
houses. The primary access, as
currently proposed, would be a
connection from Mayport Road
and there would be a secondary
access from Selva Marina Drive,
according to Doerr.
The application to change the
comprehensive plan land use
map is the first of several steps
required to change the use of
land from recreational and open
space to residential and low den-
sity, according to Doerr.
The proposal has been shared
with developers to "solicit offers
to purchase the land," according
to a letter from Alan Ennis, pres-
ident of the board of directors
for Selva Marina Country Club,
located at 1600 Selva Marina Dr.
However, no decisions have
actually been made as to what to
do with the property, some of
which is occupied by the tennis
courts, and most of the decision
making will come from the
developers, according to Susan
Jackers, director of membership
and marketing for Selva Marina.
Many homeowners in Selva
Linkside II, the community
adjacent to the proposed devel-
opment site, oppose the current.
design proposal.
"As a citizen of Atlantic Beach,
I can't give a thumbs up on
this," said Deborah Muth, presi-
dent of the homeowner's associ-
ation for Selva Linkside II.
Muth expressed concern not
only for her own neighborhood,
but for the community of
Atlantic Beach as a whole,
emphasizing that Atlantic Beach
cannot withstand such develop-
ment.
She said other members of the
community are also unhappy
with the environmental and aes-
thetic impact the development
would have on the community.
The project has been pro-
posed so that the club can raise
funds to update its facilities,
according to Jacker.
The Community
Development Board will hold a
public meeting to discuss the
club's application on Feb. 20 at 7
p.m. in commission chambers,
800 Seminole Road.
The clubhouse and some
property are located in Atlantic
Beach, while the rest of the
course is in Jacksonville.

Van Leer said eating locally extracted

For centuries, honey was "the sweeten-

Sealed containers of honey found in
some ancient tombs in Egypt were edible,

"So it has a good shelf life."

officials to discuss alterna-

JEA has requested a meeting
with City Manager Jim

Wolfson in the next few
weeks. The franchise agree-
ment, which was established
in 1974, between the city of
Atlantic Beach and the JEA
does not require that the JEA
maintain a local office.
With the relocation of the
tax collector's office to
Neptune Beach, residents lost

Sales:

Continued from A-1
The Beaches are clearly in a
buyer's market, giving buyers more
negotiating room, which some-
times brings offers significantly
below the asking price, said Paul
Gruenther of Vanguard Realty.
He said average home prices dur-
ing 2006 at the Beaches may be
skewed higherbecause "low end
stuff at the Beach was stripped out
and you get to a certain higher
price level pretty quick, and that
affects average home price."
While this area did not take the
same adjustments in market price
that were seen in South Florida,
where property prices fell dramati-
cally, there have been some price
adjustments down, Gruenther said.
That means that there are bar-
gains to be found, he said, adding
that he has recently seen some
homes here for under $200,000 on
the market.
"Everybody is trying to look into
their crystal balls and trying to see
what to predict," Gruenther said.
"It's not going to be a boom, but it's
not going to be a bust. Remember
2006 was good, sales were good and
prices were up a little."
A recent national report that a
glut of empty homes in the US
could trigger another downturn in
the housing market has less rele-
vance here, Gruenther said,
explaining that many investors
have simply withdrawn properties
from the market, which limits the
inventory of what's available to
buyers. Meanwhile, to cover their
costs, investors often choose to
offer the properties for rent, he
explained.
The communications director for
NEFAR, Melanie Green, concurred
this week that some investors are
opting to rent their properties,
because rentals are typically strong
- at the Beaches.
"That's going to be a hot ticket
because we're not making any more
water," Green said.
She said that market changes, ris-
ing interest rates and other factors
are returning the Beaches' real
estate market "back to a normal
robust market."
"We're not like the rest of the
country," she said.
"The Beaches is always going to
be a desirable place."

Bees: 'Van Leer's Honey' a hit with friends, neighbors and church newcomers

Many people substitute
honey for sugar when baking,
because it keeps cakes moist.

What were 'duh' Bears thinking?


SCareful: Cupid's not on the clock just yet


Expecting a large bouquet of roses
or perhaps a box of chocolates on
Valentine's Day?
How about a message from you
sweetheart on your answering
machine that starts with the infa-
mous words "We need to talk?"
According to new research from
Yahoo! Personals, we're in National
Breakup Season, the period between
the December holidays and
Valentine's Day where people are
more than twice as likely to think
about breaking up than any other
time of year.
January's focus on resolutions to
be healthier and happier leads cou-
ples to take a closer look at their
- relationships and whether they are
with the tight person, according to
a news release.
The two primary reasons leading
to a breakup were not having a
shared view of the "future with a
partner (48 percent) and feeling
unfulfilled or in a rut (41 percent),


according to the study.
If, at this point, you are starting
to question if indeed your relation-
ship is headed down the tubes, con-
sider the following clues before
ordering that $200 bouquet.
1) The cold shoulder. The study
found that 62 percent of people
about to break up with their partner
are very likely to or will definitely
avoid the other person.
2) Suspicious, new relationship
with the computer. Almost 40 per-
cent of respondents said they would
very likely or would definitely go
online to check out local singles
and see what's out there;
3) Hitting the bottle. Forty-six
percent of 18- to 29-year-olds and
40 percent of 30- to 39-year-olds are
likely to have a drink to loosen up
just before the break up.
4) Calm before the storm. Thirty-
one percent said they would spend
"one last great night together"
before the break up.

Penman is essential road


To the editor:
As a resident of Penman
Road for over 20 years, in both
Jacksonville Beach and
Neptune Beach, I believe I am
more of an expert than a traf-
fic guy from Orlando who
walked the road and gave an
opinion.
Yes, occasionally people do
"fly" down the road, but with
traffic backed up twice a day
(school opening/closing and
morning and evening rush
hour), there's not a lot of room
to "fly" traffic is very slow.
The only place I see people
"flying" is down the center
lane. Motorists passing in the
center lane are a real problem.
I can't count the number of
times I have almost been hit
head-on by someone who is
either passing in the center or
getting into the turn lane way
too early and driving down
the middle while I wait in
that lane with my signal on
indicating I am turning into
my driveway.
This can be remedied, how-
ever, with the police issuing
tickets. I have never seen the
police stake out Penman the
way they do Forest Boulevard.
Councilman Rick Knight
says "I would like to see the
ditches go away". If the ditch-
es are gone, where is the rain-
water going to go? Into our
homes. He says "People love
to drive slow on a country
lane." Haven't you all heard?
This is not the country we
are a high falutin', quaint, sea-
side community. If someone
wants to drive slow on a coun-
try lane, they need to go find
one.
There are only two ways to
travel between Beach and
Atlantic Boulevards one is
A1A, a failed road that for
some reason can support new
construction on the Atlantic


Beach side but not on the
Neptune Beach side and
Penman Road.
Recommendations for
improvement include "on
street parking along the com-
mercial area". The "commer-
cial area" is 2/10 of a mile
long. If the road isn't being
widened, where on earth are
you supposed to park on the
road? Also, "planning build-
ings close to the street". Does
this mean we are moving
buildings or when they want
to rebuild or remodel, we will
force them closer to the road?
What does moving buildings
closer to the road accomplish
except to bring the noise level
up inside the business/home?
The expert pointed out that
there are "lots of homes for
sale with reduced prices". As
of Tuesday morning, there are
eight homes for sale, Qnly one
of which has a "reduced" sign,
and one parcel of land. I
don't consider that "lots of
homes". The comment was
also made that "property val-
ues would benefit immensely
if conditions along the corri-
dor improved". First, property
values at the Beach (even on
Penman Road) are skyrocket-
ing. Second, aren't we hearing
ad nauseam about property
values being so high that "the
poor" can't afford to buy here?
Yes, the bus stops are hor-
rendous and need improve-
ment. Yes, something needs
to be done about the center
lane. Jacksonville will gladly
take our property taxes and
give us an allowance, but you
are kidding yourselves if you
think they are going to kick in
for this "multi, multi-million
dollar project".

HOYLE DEMPSEY
COLUMNIST


It's a country
song, it's a
Hollywood
movie, no just

a news story


K


Singing is just humiliating


singing of some locals with
that of "American Idol" audi-
tionees, and I concluded that
we have some potential win-
ners here.
One factor that, to me,
makes the selection of
"American Idol" winners of
questionable legitimacy is the
practice that permits TV view-
ers to vote by phone as many
times as they like, subject to
time zone restrictions (per
Wikipedia). If we voted that
way in politics, I suspect we'd
have a government which is
even weirder than the ones
we've elected. (That's a joke, I
think.)
I must confess that I've
learned something about
myself while engaged in
karaoke: I'll never be a con-
testant on "American Idol,"
even though I've been to
Singapore. I always fight stage
fright.
I've decided there are so
many effective ways to humil-
iate myself, I don't need
another. When I somehow
find myself quaking before
the microphone, my lyricism
often isn't very lyrical.
Actually, I'd rather be an
"American Idle."


W hen some people
sing, others are
inclined to clap their
hands-over their ears. I
sensed that among the three
judges as a few would-be con-
testants were trying out for
"American Idol" on TV the
other night. After the losers
were rejected, to the tune of
sarcastic comments by judge
Simon Cowell, I thought of
the old Major Bowes' Original
Amateur Hour. It was broad-
cast on the radio from 1934
to 1952 and then on televi-
sion until 1970.
Cowell's mikeside manner
is pretty brutal, but arguably
no more than the method of
turning down participants on
the Major Bowes show. The
Major sounded a loud gong to
-igrnv thut the perormrancce
was over, the individual hav-'
ing failed. As one Internet
history described it, "...many
were gonged off before finish-
ing their act, a cruel practice
that made audiences roar
with laughter." If you sang
"wrong," you got the gong.
One of my late wife's aunts,
long deceased, experienced
this herself when she
appeared on.the show back in
its early days. I never heard

"I stole a Wal-Mart truck to go
see Mama, then 1 took Crystal
Gayle's bus to get back home!"
Betyou read that line and tried to
put a tune to it. They qre proba-,
bly the best Country lyrics ever
taken from an Associated Press
news story!

nmate Christopher Daniel
Gay. picked Sunday January
21st, to make his'big escape.
He jumped out of a prison
transport van near beautiful
down town Hardeeville, South
Carolina, not to be confused
with Harleyville, South
Carolina, where the motorcy-
cle guys keep stealing the city
limits signs! Authorities think
his motive was to 'go see his
sick Mama, up in Nashville.
Next thing he did was swipe a
pick up truck and head west to
Georgia in his route to Music
City. Then, he took for his
driving pleasure, the cab of a
tractor trailer.
The "little cab that would"
made it all the way out 1-20 to
Atlanta, then north on 1-75 to
Chattanooga. There our folk
hero (at least he would be if
Johnny Cash were still around)
took 1-24 into Manchester,
Tennessee where Christopher
hooked A WalMart tractor
filled with $300,000 worth of
merchandise to "his" cab!
Now the plot.thickens! He
abandoned the Wal-Marttruck
50 yards from his Mother's
house in Nashville, because
authorities got wind the rig
was parked there. Chris high
tailed it into the woods, and
some how found his way out
of the brush at the garage
which housed Country. legend
Crystal Gayle's tour bus. This is
not only inspiration for a great
Country song, 'this might be
the screen play for another
Dukes of Hazard movie!
The slippery fugitive drove
back to 1-24 in the huge, luxu-
rious motor vehicle. When he
arrived back in Chattanooga,
he didn't take a choo choo.
Instead, without notice or fan
fare, he made his way south on
1-75 through Georgia, all the
way to the great state of
Florida.
I'd like to think that
Christopher refreshed himself
at the Florida Welcome Center,
and enjoyed a complimentary
thimble of orange juice. We do
know that he drove to the USA
International Speedway in
Lakeland, -where he told offi-
cials he was there to pick up
NASCAR driver Tony Stewart. I
don't know, maybe a tour bus
driver in an orange jump suit
praised red flag, but a license
tag check on the bus showed it
belonged to Crystal Gayle.
Chris got nervous when the
officials asked for his identifi-
cation and sped off!
Former and future prisoner.
Christopher Daniel Gay was
finally nabbed in Daytona
Beach. He obviously thought
those NASCAR guys were look-
ing to get on the bus. If he
couldn't give Tony Stewart a
lift, maybe Dale Jr. would likec.
one. At least he got to go say,
hey to his Mama and "Don't it,
Make Your Brown Eyes Blue?"

her, but she reportedly had a
fairly good voice.
Unfortunately, the Major did-
n't think so and hit the gong
after only a note or two had
been sung.
Based on Wikipedia, the
online encyclopedia, I under-
stand that "American Idol"
auditions have been held in
many cities but apparently
not in Jacksonville. If so, I
believe the producers are
thereby missing a sizable pool
of high talent, judging from
my experience in the audi-
ence at karaoke sessions here.
Trying to be objective, I've
mentally compared the


To the editor:
I would like to write in concerning the recent
articles written and the comments made by
project managers and city officials recently
about "restructuring" Penman Road. While the
project does have a lot of merit, and some
change is necessary, I don't beli eve that an
important fact has been taken into account.
That fact.is, Penman Road is the only other
major artery from Atlantic Boulevard to Beach
Boulevard, other than 3rd Street.
It is widely known that traffic congestion and
accidents are a major problem on Penman, and
I do -not doubt for a moment that improve-
ments such as adding turn lanes on the right
side of the road and even slowing the speed
limit would be monumental in decreasing the
amount of wrecks and fender-benders that
occur on the road. However, I recall
douncilman Rick Knight's statement made in
an article in the January 31st edition of the
Leader that, "people love driving slow on a
country lane."
Yes, Mr. Knight, I am sure they do. However,
Penman Road is not a country lane. It is the sec-
ond of the only two major thoroughfares the


cities of'Neptune and Jacksonville Beach have
running from. Atlantic to Beach Boulevards. I
am sure lots of people use it to, go to work,
church, and other social activities and commit-
ments. Even now, I have no doubt people use it
to bypass the construction occurring on Beach
Boulevard thanks'to the construction of the
new bridge.
What of those people? While I am sure that
some sort of compromise needs to be made, it
sounds likemore consideration is being taken
for everyone except motorists. Driving slow on
a country lane may be okay for some, but the
person trying to avoid major traffic or stoplights
while trying to reach their job might not agree
with that sentiment.
I hope that in their "walking tour" of the road
the engineers -and councilmen made considera-
tions for both the driver and the non-driver.
Penman doesn't need to be beautified just for
the sake of being beautified. It needs to be a
road that can accommodate all those who need
to use it, bikers, walkers, and drivers alike.

To the editor:
Recently a family member
was the victim of a vicious and
unprovoked assault by a home-
less person at Jacksonville
Beach. If not for the rapid and
professional response of fire
and rescue paramedics, the
Jacksonville Beach Police and
rapid and fantastic care by sur-
geons at the Shands Trauma
Center, the person would have
lost their life.
This attack occurred in the


downtown entertainment area
at the Seawalk Pavilion of
Jacksonville Beach within
walking distance of many fine
hotels, motels and restaurants.
Millions of dollars have been
spent to make this area a beau-
tiful and inviting destination.
It is a sad day when a citizen
cannot walk this area without
fear of being attacked by some
homeless vagrant.
What makes the event even
more disgusting is that the per-


petrator had committed a sim-
ilar attack in the past, but
because of the inattention-of
the State's Attorney's Office,
was set free on a technicality
and allowed to roam the
streets and continue to prey
upon the population.
Be reminded: homeless is
not harmless.,

B.E.A.M. Board of Trustees plan for the future and review 2006. From left, front row, are

FROM STAFF
After reviewing the accomplishments of
Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry
(B.E.A.M.) during 2006, the B.E.A.M. board
has turned its attentions to the lack of dental
care and paucity of medical care for the needy
at the Beaches.
Although B.E.A.M. provides limited free
dental care for children during the summer,
there is no free dental care for adults, accord-
ing to a B.E.A.M. news release.
That and free medical care will be addressed
by B.E.A.M. during 2007, the release said.
The B.E.A.M. Board of Trustees, meeting
recently at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
LIbrary, heard about the nonprofit organiza-
tion's successes during the past year.
About 50,000 tons of food and $200,000 in
emergency assistance were distributed to
needy Beaches residents in 2006, according.
to the release.
It said the organization has made strides
toward its mission "to keep families housed
through short-term emergency assistance and
. . 'to get families the long-term help they
need to become self-sufficient."
Utility expenses, another critical issue for


some Beaches families, is addressed. by the
organization in partnership with Beaches
Energy Services.
Money pledged by customers when paying
electric bills goes into a fund to help pay bills
for needy families. And although the amount
pledged per customer is small, "it adds up to
a significant amount used in keeping utilities
on for Beaches families in need," said Cindy
Funkhouser, executive director.
Another issue addressed by B.E.A.M. in
2006 the shrinking inventory of affordable
housing at the Beaches led to formation of
the Beaches Housing Coalition: The need for
housing continues to be a priority for
B.E.A.M., the release said.
The cash distributed by B.E.A.M. was up 33
percent during 2006 from the year before, and
the weight of food was up 81 percent, the
press release said.
B.E.A.M.'s funding comes from individual
and business donations (38 percent), local
churches (40 percent) and grants (10 percent).
Donations can be mailed to: B.E.A.M., at
850 Sixth Ave. S., Suite 400, Jacksonville
Beach, 32250.

Valentine's Day for chocolate lovers


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
In addition to flowers and
paper hearts, chocolate is
one of the most popular
traditions for Valentine's
Day.
"The loveliest thing about
chocolate, the thing that
makes us all so happy when
we eat it, is that it contains
the highest concentration in
any food of phenylethy-
lamine, which is the chemi-
cal produced in the brain
when a person is in love,"
according to Peterbrooke
Chocolatier's website.
Chocolate's popularity for
Valentine's Day gift giving is
obvious since "the week
before Valentine's Day is our
busiest week of the year,"
said Allison Behringer of
Peterbrooke Chocolatier's
corporate office.


However, even without a
lot of baking experience,
most people can make a
memorable and more person-
al chocolate gift for
Valentine's Day.
A romantic dinner fol-
lowed by any of the follow-
ing homemade chocolate
desserts is a special way to
say Happy Valentine's Day."
Neptune Beach resident
Denise Lovan was formerly a
Culinary Arts instructor at
the First Coast Technical
Institute in St. Augustine.
Lovan suggested serving
Chocolate Decadence Truffle


for Valentine's Day.
The flourless dessert is one
of her favorites and it is
always well received, she
said. Although it is very rich,
it is relatively easy to make.
"This wonderful cake can
be finished with any number
of sauces," said Lovan.
Choose the type of sauce
that would please your
Valentine the most; choco-
late, sweetened whipped
cream, or liqueur or fruit fla-
vored sauces.

Chocolate Decadence
Truffle (Denise Lovan)
4 oz of semi-sweet or dark
chocolate
1 stick butter
three-quarters cup sugar
3 large eggs
one-half cup cocoa

TEACHER OF THE YEAR


Evans makes art 'optimal experience' at Mayport Elementary


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
"The magic is not in the
paint brush, the magic is
inside you," reads a poster in
Judi Evans' art room at
Mayport Elementary School.
Evans teaches art to about
550 students in grades
kindergarten through fifth
grades and was recently
named the school's teacher
of the year.
F"Art is important because
it, advances critical thinking
skills foremost but it also
allows students an outlet
from all the academic study
areas that we are trying so
hard to advance them in
every day," Evans said.
"There is so much stress to
pass the state tests; art is a
release from that although it
involves very high level
thinking skills. You create a
test for yourself and you
work toward the goal of pass-
ing the test on your own."
Every year teachers and
staff in public schools are
asked to nominate and vote
for teacher of the year to rep-
resent their school in the dis-
trict and state Teacher of the

most talented students, fifth-grader Alvin Chico.


Year Recognition Program.
Mayport is in Region 4 of
Duval County, which
includes all the public


schools at the Beaches and
West Beaches.
Evans started her teaching
career at Finegan Elementary


in Atlantic Beach 20 years
ago.
She taught art there for
eight years and has been at


Mayport Elementary for the
past 12 years. She lives in
Jacksonville Beach and is
president of Duval County's
Art Teachers Association,
which raises money for
teacher training.
"I've seen art programs
across the state and Duval
County has some of the best
art programs in the state,"
Evans said.
"Everything we do in art
class connects with what
they're doing in the class-
room so we can expand
upon what they're learning."
Art is considered a core
subject in accordance with
the No Child Left Behind
Act, but Evans said the 45
minutes she spends with stu-
dents every seven days is still
not enough.
"Unfortunately it has been
written into law federally but
not funded federally so that
art teachers can do the kind
of quality work they are
capable of doing with stu-
dents and really get into
depth," Evans said.
"I have to make it an opti-
mal experience with a limit-
ed amount of time."
Evans said one of her


greatest rewards as a teacher
is seeing talented children
take their talents to the next
level.
Tori Kemper, a fifth grader
at Mayport Elementary, is
applying to LaVilla School of
the Arts for next school year.
She auditioned with her
portfolio of artwork on
Tuesday in hopes of being
accepted into the magnet art
school for arts.
"Art gives me the opportu-
nity to express my style,"
said Kemper. "I want to be
an author and illustrator."
Evans doesn't expect all of
her students to make art
their career but hopes their
time in her classroom will
help build their character.
"When you create some-
thing that is uniquely your
own you can take pride that
it came from inside you,"
Evans said.
"Art is a way to build char-
acter and develop the soul of
a child. The process of creat-
ing is a positive direction so
when you're in that frame of
mind you keep going in a
positive direction, keep
developing those skills and
that quality of thinking."

The Vienna Choir Boys perform "Chim Chim Cher-ee" from the musical "Mary Poppins" Monday at St. Paul's By the Sea
in Jacksonville Beach for students from Jacksonville Beach Elementary, Beaches Episcopal School and Terry Parker High
School. The choir also performed a series of Austrian folk songs and ended with three selections from the "Sound of
Music." The capella choir of 10- to 14-year-olds performed on Sunday at St. Paul's as part of the Beaches Fine Arts
Series. The Vienna Choir Boys was founded in 1498 by Emperor Maximilian I of Austria. In 1921, the boys choir estab-
lished as a private institution, and the imperial uniform was exchanged for what was then the height of fashion for boys:
the sailor suit.

with liqueurs.

Chocolate Mousse
Sarah Bove, administrative
coordinator and trainer with
Publix Supermarkets and a


former chef trained at .
L'Academie d'Cuisine near
Washington, D.C., suggested
her favorite chocolate
mousse recipe for Valentine's
Day dessert.
Bove combines semi-sweet
chocolate with some sugar,
eggs, and whipped cream for
a simply smooth and deli-
cious chocolate dessert.
To make Chocolate
Mousse, she recommends
following the recipe carefully
to be sure the eggs are han-
dled properly. Pasteurized
eggs can also be substituted.
Serve this dessert in cham-
pagne glasses with a layer of
raspberries lining the bottom
of each glass for a romantic
and elegant presentation. -

Chocolate Mousse
(Sarah Bove)
8 oz. semi sweet chocolate
one half cup sugar
2 eggs, at room tempera-
ture
2 cups heavy cream
2 egg yolks, at room tem-
perature
Take eggs out of refrigera-
tor 30 minutes before you
begin.
Melt chocolate in top of
double boiler. Use a very
clean, dry stainless or ceram-
ic bowl on top of a pot of,
simmering watei,' a'td'a clean
rubber spatula. Do hot allow
any water to get into the
chocolate. Cool to room
temperature.
Mix eggs, yolks, and sugar
with a whisk in a stainless
steel bowl to the ribbon
stage.
This may take a few min-
utes of brisk whisking, and
the mixture will lighten in
color. You'll know you are
there when you can lift the
whisk out and drizzle the
mixture over the bowl, and
you will have an impression
on top of the mixture that
retains it's shape, and looks
like a ribbon on top of the
mixture.
Add room temp chocolate
mixture into egg mixture.


Both mixtures should be
approximately the same tem-
perature. Work mixtures
together quickly with rubber
spatula. Do not overwork.
SWhip cream to stiff peaks
in a clean, dry bowl that is
free of any fat. Gently fold
half of the cream into the
chocolate mixture, scraping
spatula along the bottom df
the bowl, up the sides, and
over the mixture to blend
the chocolate and the cream
mixtures. Add remaining
whipped cream in the same
way.
It is important to not loose
the volume you have
achieved in the whipped
cream. Do not overwork.
Pipe (or spoon if you are
tidy) mixture into ramekins,
wine or champagne glasses,
and refrigerate 5-6 hours at
least, but preferably
overnight. Cover top of con-
tainer with clear wrap to
keep fresh.
It's. quite nice to line the
bottom of the ramekin with
fresh raspberries.

Nease boys in regional soccer semifinal


Panthers hit road to play

Orlando's Bishop Moore


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

Fresh off an eight-goal per-
formance against Lecanto High
in the opening round of the
Class 4A state playoffs, the
Nease boys soccer team was
poised to tangle with a physi-
cal Bishop Moore squad
Tuesday night
in Orlando.
While thun-
derstorms post-
poned the
opening round
of the playoffs
Thursday,
Lecanto made
the return five-
hour trip
Saturday only

"I've been

practice we work on something
offensively and what we've
realized is it's just work ethic.

"And finally now I think

and it's nice to score all those

Panthers junior midfielder
Joe McKinley scored the first
two goals and the scoring bar-

and flow.
"Usually it's our defense
that's saved us, but this time it
was our offense that pulled
through."
The Panthers defense had lit-
tle to do Saturday. Officially,
Lecanto had no shots on goal.
"I'm sure coming up and
back Thursday, and then com-
ing again this morning might
have played a role in that,"
said Kirsch.
"But I like to say there's two
equalizers. One is weather and
you can't control that. And the
other one is energy level. We
can control our energy level."


The victory put Nease (20-3-
1) into Tuesday night's regional
semifinal against Bishop Moore
(17-6-2).
"This game was a good way
to prepare for Bishop Moore,"
said Svilokos. "Now we're
ready and prepared. We've got
our energy up and our
momentum flowing. I think
we'll come out strong."
The .teams met at the
Admiral Tournament in Tampa
last December. Nease. emerged
with a 2-1 victory and a good
idea of what the Hornets are all
about.
"It was a pretty good game. I


was without a couple of my
starters in that game but it was
a pretty good match-up,"
Kirsch said.
"I think [beating Lecanto]
helps us build our confidence
and I was pleased with the
entire team's focus from the
time we met at 11:45 this
morning right up until the
final gqoal"-....
The Hornets advanced to the
regional semis with a 4-1 win
over Springstead.
"I missed that game but
from what my teammates have
said they're a physical team
with one or two really good


.players," Svilokos said. "I think
we're confident from having
played them before and we'll
match up well against them."
Kirsch has told his players
the playoff season is like a five-
step ladder. The Panthers
reached the first step by win-
ning the district championship
in January and made their way
to the second rung with.
Saturday's win.
"We're at step two now and
facing Bishop Moore is step
three," he said. "Of course the
fourth and fifth steps would
take us to the state final four
and that's among our goals."

FISHING



Weather continues to hamper local fishing


The weather continues to
take a big bite out of
northeast Florida fish-.
ing. Anglers who can get as
much as 10 miles offshore
can catch plenty of sea bass.
Trout fishing has been pro-
ductive, but remember, you
can't keep them this month.
A few trout are being
caught but, of course, they
must be released. Capt. Dave


Sipler fished the feeder creeks
last Tuesday and netted six
red bass, two flounder and 20
trout then on Wednesday
picked up 17 trout.
Last Monday, James Gergley
and his friend Mike Tandarich
used live shrimp from the
"Head Hunter"and caught
eight reds, seven trout and a
flounder and on Tuesday
morning using minnows for
bait at Hanna Park caught 18

OPINION


No Super Bowl surprise,



Colts simply better team


With little surprise, the
Indianapolis Colts
reign today as cham-
pions of pro football. Only
diehard Chicago Bears fans
would deny it.
Some say the 29-17 outcome
down in Dolphin Stadium
Sunday night might have been
different on a dry field that
wasn't peppered throughout
the game with rain drops.
It might have been at that.
On a dry night, the Colts,
behind super quarterback
P't' toin Manning, might have
won by six or seven touch-
downs.
Manning is clearly superior
to the less-experienced Rex
Grossman. Even though he's a
former Florida Gator, the Bears
QB has been the target of criti-
cism at various points
throughout the season by his
own fans, who might have left
Miami snarling, "Rex's perfor-
mance? Totally gross, man."
All right, so Rex tossed a
pair of interceptions, the most
lethal of which resulted in a
TD the other way that virtual-
ly iced the game for
Indianapolis. And so he mis-
handled a few snaps.
Grossman was playing for his
life in the biggest challenge of
his young life. Let's be toler-
ant. He was up against the
best in the NFL.
It took awhile to get
warmed up, but not even a
bear named Smokey could
have saved things for Chicago.
The best will win and that's as
sure as shootings in
Jacksonville.

PRESS BOX



The Bears Q
has been the
get of criticism
various poin
throughout t
season by h
own fans, wt
might have l
Miami snarlir
"Rex's perfo
mance? Tota
gross, man.

Bowls, let us remind thE
that it didn't rain on Su
Bowl XXXIX, played rig
here in Jacksonville.
Sunday's game got off
surprising start. Bears re
man Devin Hester took
opening kickoff back 92
for a score that gave Ch
7-0 lead.
Some might have frov
"Haven't I seen this gan
before?" They'd be recall


similar kick return for a touch-
down that opened the Ohio
State-Florida game that gave
the Buckeyes an early lead in
last month's BCS champi-
onship game.
But on Sunday, all this rerun
did was add a little spice to
the game and give the Bears a
.L- much-needed boost in confi-
dence. And although Chicago
did manage to lead 16-14 at
halftime, it was as misleading
as a cross-eyed traffic cop.
ON Manning got on track and
before long the Colts were in
the lead for good. The former
Tennessee Volunteer, who has-
n't really enjoyed many out-
ings in Florida throughout his
IB career, completed 25-of-38
tar- passes for 247 yards, one inter-
n at ception and one TD.
Grossman finished with a
its higher completion percentage
he (20-for-28) for 165 yards but
he also had those two ill-
lis timed picks.
ho The big difference, besides a/
eft Colts defense that held the
Bears to one field goal in the
rig, second half, was the golden
(r- toe of Indy kicker Adam
Vinatieri who came back after
lly a rare miss the first time and
." nailed three field goals to put
the game away. Having a QB
like Peyton Manning is a big
e critics advantage, but having a kicker
[per with a seeing-eye footsie is
ght worth every penny they're
paying him.
f to a Maybe Chicago can sign
turn Prince. He seemed to have bet-
the ter footing in the rain during
Z yards the halftime show than the
icago a Bears did all game long.
University of Florida fans
wned, might say the Bears had the
ne wrong Gator. The needed Tim
lling a Tebow. Maybe that will come.
