Selva's building plan

The Atlantic Beach Community
Development Board will hold a public
hearing Tuesday regarding the recently
submitted Selva Marina Country Club
land use change application.
The Club submitted an application
to change the land use of a portion of
the golf course, which is directly adja-
cent to many homes in Selva Linkside
II, to a residential use, according to
Community Development Director
Sonya Doerr. The public meeting to
discuss the application will be held at 7
p.m. in commission chambers, 800
One resident, Jack Robbins, who is
president of the homeowner's associa-
tion for Selva Linkside I, said he plans
to speak at the meeting and try to
"calm both sides." He, unlike some res-
idents of Selva Linkside II who have
hired an attorney to represent their
side, will suggest that the application
should be approved. .

The owner of Freebird Live in
Jacksonville Beach has scrapped plans
to sell the club's building and move to
larger digs in Atlantic Beach after the
leasing deal in Atlantic Beach fell
Judy Van Zant-Jenness, owner of
Freebird Live at 200 First St. N., said the
club will stay at 200 1st St. N. and she
will not sell the building to former
Jaguar linebacker Kevin Hardy.
Van Zant-Jenness planned to lease
approximately 17,000-square-feet in
the Atlantic Theatres building owned
by Chris Hionides to increase the size
of the stage and accommodate bigger
Hardy, with the investment group
The Pacific Partnership, planned to
purchase the Freebird Live building to
develop Reign, an upscale eatery on the
ground floor and a lounge upstairs.
"I told Kevin I am not going to sell. I
think he is still holding out that some-
thing is going to come up, but I don't
know what," Van Zant-Jenness said
Thursday. "There is no where else."
Van Zant-Jenness said she received
word about two weeks ago that
although she met all of Atlantic Beach's
requirements for the property, owner
Chris Hionides rescinded his offer to
lease the space.
"We went and did all the stuff. The
people were behind us and now the
owner doesn't want to lease to us, so
we are back to square one," she said.
"He called two weeks ago and said it
just wasn't going to work out. I didn't
go any further than that. We had been
going back and forth about lease issues
for a while."
The Atlantic Beach City Commission
approved the use by exception to oper-
ate a live music venue in approximate-
ly 17,000-square-feet of space adjacent
to an existing comedy club in the
Atlantic Theatres building as long con-
cerns such as parking, noise and securi-
ty were addressed.

City staff recommended approval of
the project as long as Van Zant-Jenness
agreed to follow a list of conditions.
More than 30 btisiness owners in the
area also signed affidavits praising
Freebird Live for the caliber of artists
the club attracts.
Van Zant-Jenness said she doesn't
have any immediate plans for the pres-
ent location but she plans to look at
ways to reconfigure the existing floor
plan to enlarge the stage without
increasing the club's capacity.
The club's current capacity is 690.
The Atlantic Theatres site would
accommodate 1,000 seats.
"It's not a capacity issue. It's a stage
issue. We don't lose bands because of
our capacity," she said, noting that
Lindsey Btickingham of Fleetwood Mac
fame recently declined to book a date
because the stage was too small. "I was
bummed," she said.

pleased to hear that the club would be
staying in Jacksonville Beach. The pub-
lic's response was equally positive, she

The cost for a sidewalk along Ponte Vedra
Boulevard may change considerably now that
a trustee for the Ponte Vedra Municipal
Service District (MSD) found a "loophole" in
Curtis Long, who was elected to the board
in November and who has a background in
construction, said Monday he researched the
Americans with Disabilities Act, which
requires sidewalks to have no more than a 2
percent downward slope.
But Long said the standards do not apply to
retrofitted sidewalk projects as this one
If required, ADA standards would require
the repaving of most of the driveways where
the sidewalk is to be built the 900 block of
the boulevard, bumping up costs from
$21,000 to $35,000.
"You can take that [issue] up with the coun-
ty it's your money," Long said to Dana
Current, a boulevard resident heading up the
About two dozen residents in the 900 block
contributed a total of about $18,000, about
half the projected cost.
The county has agreed to pay almost
$13,000 or 36 percent which would
cover most of the cost for repaving the drive-
ways, Current said.
The MSD will pay just under $5,000, or 14
percent of the total cost.
MSD trustees voted Monday night to
approve the contract for the sidewalk and a
local agreement with St. Johns County for the
Only Trustee Bob Reesh voted against the
agreement, which he later said was because
MSD trustees didn't receive the contract or
local agreement until the meeting and many
questions about both were unanswered.
"I have no problem with the sidewalk," but
it was the wrong time to vote on the contract,
Reesh said Tuesday.
County Engineer Pres Tompkins said
Tuesday that he is not aware of a loophole in
the Americans with Disabilities Act for retrofit
The only exemption he. knows about is one
for historic buildings, he said.
But, he said, county standards may still
require the driveways to be less than a 2 per-
Current said he hopes construction of the
sidewalk will get started by Feb. 26.
Car thefts drop

Lt. Tommy Aman, a St. Johns County
Sheriff's officer assigned to the Ponte Vedra,
Municipal Service District (MSD), h'ad s6ifni
good and not-so-good news for MSD trustees
at their Monday night meeting.
The good news: car thefts in Ponte Vedra
appear to be declining.
Two car thefts were reported this month -
one on Feb. 5 and another on Feb. 10 -
compared with four car thefts reported from
Dec. 1 to Jan. 22, according to police reports.
The .bad news is no arrests have been
But Aman said the Sheriff's Office has
identified some suspects, whom he would
not identify because deputies are still inves-
Of the recent car thefts, one was within
the MSD on Ponte Vedra Court and one was
outside the MSD in the Marsh Cove area.
According to police reports, one of the
owners said he left his car unlocked with the
keys in the driver seat while he went inside
his home around 7:30 p.m.
Thirty minutes later, he went back outside
and the car was gone, the report said.
.The other theft occurred between 1:30
a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The report did
not say whether the owner left the car
Three out of the four vehicles stolen in
December and January were also left
unlocked, according to police reports.
, Aman said Monday that hopefully the
declneine in thefts means residents are remem-
bering to lock their doors and hide their
valuables from view.

Beaches Energy Service and
JEA, which provide utility
services to some Ponte Vedra
residents, are not on the hunt
to buy other utility compa-
nies in the area.
But St. Johns County cer-
That's what St. Johns
County Utility Director Bill
Young told members of the
Palm Valley Community
Association Monday night.
He joined Don Ouchley of
Beaches Energy and Nancy
Kilgo of JEA to discuss the
future of utility services in
"The county definitely is in
acquisition mode," Young
"We're just not built to do a
lot at one time," he said,
explaining that the county
tackles one utility company at
Kilgo and Ouchley said
their companies have no
plans to acquire any other
utilities and neither has any
plans for major capital
improvement projects, either.
St. Johns County's current
"acquisition mode" contin-
ued last year when the county
began a slow-take procedure
to buy Intercoastal Utilities,
after completing the purchase
of St. Johns Service Co. in
But Young's announcement
means residents shouldn't be
* surprised if the county con-
tinues to search for other util-
ities to purchase if a deal is
struck with Intercoastal.
It's all part of the county's
effort to control all water and
sewer utility services within
its boundaries and to con-
serve water, Young said.
The county's utility depart-
ment currently operates with
a conservation rate structure,
in which rates for water
increase as consumption:
Young said the Ponte Vedra
customers of St. Johns Service
were paying some of the low-
est rates in the state when the
county bought the utility.
The county implemented a
similar yet separate conserva-
tion rate structure for its cus-
tomers in Ponte Vedra.
Though Ponte Vedra cus-
tomers continue to pay con-
siderably less than customers
in the rest of the county,
Young said, it was quite an
increase for those who con-
sume a lot.
Young said many high-end
users in Ponte Vedra are start-
ing to consider other options,
such as irrigation wells to
curb their consumption -
and their bills.
But Young was not saved
from an earful of complaints
about the rate hike, he said.
"The county took a brave
stand,. I think, in trying to
conserve water," Young said.

The Leader's Opinion
Beach access is
precious for all
A Nassau County proposal to close public beach
accesses after dark was rejected this week delighting
hundreds of residents opposed to the closure.
Residents there had argued that closing beach access-
es and parks after dark would restrict public usage by
fishermen, those seeking to take a moonlight stroll or
anyone else interested in enjoying the shoreline in the
The county commissioner who made the proposal to
curb vandalism and other problems at access areas
apologized. The sheriff suggested other alternatives,
such as improved lighting, could curb such problems.
That willingness to hear and heed the public is
The lessons learned there could be of value in St.
Johns County, where the Guana beach accesses and
parking areas are closed at sunset.
Guana's public parking areas close at sunset in accor-
dance with the state's administrative code, according
to the state stewards for the land, citing security con-
cerns as the reason for the closure. They do not open
again until 8 a.m.
As the county continues to grow there will be more
pressure for beach access and Guana's prime 4-mile
stretch should not be restricted from public use during
Video surveillance and stepped up patrols might be
necessary for security purposes, but the oceanfront
resources of Guana should not be off limits for those
who might enjoy a sunrise stroll along the shore or a
swim in the moonlight.

When, on Feb. 12, I asked him

Letters to the editor:
Beaches residents need to wake
up before they have a nightmare
to the editor:
Over the past few weeks I have read articles
about "beautifying" Penman road and making it
more of a "leisurely stroll" I have even heard
ideas about putting in a roundabout at the five-
way intersection. (great idea if people knew
how to use it, but sadly we don't) What we need
to realize is that like it or not, Penman is a
major north-south corridor. Like it or not the
Beaches are growing and as we grow we need to
plan for the future.
When I moved here five years ago I was
shocked at the underdevelopment of the
Beaches. This is a beachfront community out-
side a major metropolis. We live in a free mar-
ket society and allot of people want to live at
the beach! Any hopes that this area will remain
a small bedroom community is simply a delu-
sion. If you look at Penman Road it is obvious
to even the untrained eye that the city has put
in place setbacks that will allow for this road to
be widened to four or five lanes. Besides wide
residential setbacks, all the utility poles and
sidewalks are also setback from the road.
Widening Penman Road is obviously what city
planners had in mind a long fime ago.
I take Penman Road to and from work every
day from my home in Atlantic Beach to my
office in Jacksonville Beach..I have never seen
anyone speeding. In fact I challenge anyone to
try to do this with the amount of traffic. You.
also have to run a gauntlet of three city police
departments along the way. Neptune Beach
Police are famous for keeping this stretch of
roadway free of speeders, especially where
Penman veers of onto Florida Blvd. which acts
as a relief route. Every morning I send a wave of
thanks to an officer sitting on the side of the
road. Any physical attempts to slow down traf-
fic on Penman (ie speed bumps, slower limits,
stop signs, etc.) is only going to increase con-
In my opinion the cities need to start work-
ing with Florida DOT to widen Penman Road
and turn it into a relief route for A1A via Florida
Boulevard and onto Mayport Road. Third Street
is already taxed beyond its natural limits and
will soon not be able to handle both the local
traffic and traffic from A1A. Once Wal-Mart is
approved (like it or not it's going to happen)
the traffic on Atlantic will become unbearable.
There is also 30 something condo projects that
have been approved for Jax Beach all within a
few blocks of Third Street. The only solution is
to re-route A1A traffic via Penman.
Once this is done they can rezone the prop-
erty along Penman to accommodate more com-
mercial property which will allow people living
there to sell their homes at a premium. There
are currently so many houses along Penman
that have had For Sale signs in their yards for
over a year. The reason they can't sell them is
because it is simply not a good residential loca-
Simply put, we have two options. We can
spend all kind of tax dollars fighting the
inevitable and living a pipe dream with fond
memories of Penman being a dirt road or we
can accept the fact that the Beaches communi-
ties are growing at an alarming rate! We can
invest in the future by creating a proactive
infrastructure that will allow us to handle the
growth before our dream becomes a nightmare!

Iwas filing away some of my
earlier columns when I
came upon the one titled
Yankees don't have middle
names. It reminded me that
whenever I am privy to the
middle name of a celebrity, I
automatically know they are a
fellow Southerner. Such as the
case with Billy Bob Thornton,
Tommy Lee Jones and the late
Anna Nicole Smith.

fatherless, made .their stage
names household words appear-

problems with men and tragi-
cally both used drugs!
While Norma Jean would
become known as Marilyn
(Monroe), Vickie Lynn, bless her
heart, chose a first and middle
name. Somewhere between
Hugh Hefner's honors in '93 and
becoming the 2007 tabloid "dar-
ling", Anna Nicole decided to

lionaire J. Howard Marshall

she was working at Gigi's, a
"gentleman's" club in Houston..

more than one occasion, got on

after divorcing her husband
Billy Smith, 26-year-old Anna
Nicole Smith married her 89-
year-old suitor in Houston.
Some people accused Anna
Nicole of marrying J. Howard
for his money. I doubt
eHarmony.com would have
paired the two of them up by'
their profiles. But, I'll bet you
the last 13 months of the Texas
Tycoon's life were happy!
Talking about going out with a
smile on your face. If I'd have
been the judge, I would have
ruled against her "stepson", E.
Pierce Marshal,and. given her
half of the $1.6 billion estate
and named her the Texas Wife
of the Year!
It's possible that E. Pierce had
issues with calling a woman
almost 28 years younger, Mom.
Years of ugly court battles
Hollywood was to offer Anna
Nicole several film roles, which
never brought her stardom. The
only one I saw was Naked Gun
33 1/3. I thought she acted
almost as good as Priscilla
Presley. Leslie Nielson never
seemed unhappy with her, and I
respect his opinion!
By the end of the last century
she seemed to slide into obliv-
ion, with the exception of a few
late night jokes by Letterman
and Leno about her bizarre
behavior. Then in 2002 E!
offered her The Anna Nicole
Show. She accepted the reality
series which debuted with huge
ratings, but was lambasted by
critics. The show still lasted
until 2004, and developed a cult
following, and stayed on until
today in reruns and DVDs. It

Five Things Business Owners Can Improve
to Make Their Business Safer
In the past 30 days. there have been four business burglaries in the Mayport area, according
to police officers.
A well-lit business is the number one thing an owner can do to prevent crime, according to
Tchenter Wilson, a crime prevention officer at the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Orange lighting, which is generally less expensive, reduces visibility, according to Wilson.
"Lighting is the number one psychological crime prevention," he said, because criminals do
not want to be seen or recognized.
Posters and advertisements on windows interfere with visibility. People know you cannot
see them, Wilson said, making stores with posters blocking the windows an easier target.
"If it [your business] needs a paint job, paint it. If you have a broken window, fix it," Wilson
said. Poor upkeep, such as graffiti on the walls, can attract criminals to your business.
Because Florida weather has so many factors to consider, such as heat, humidity and light-
ing strikes, Wilson suggests business owners perform a function check of their alarm system
every 30 days.
Large groups of nees and plants absorb lighting, reducing visibility. People also use orange
lighting for landscaping, which again, makes movements more difficult to observe and skews
colors making identification more difficult.

Ashes on Ash Wednesday often from last year's Palm Sunday palms
by KATHY NICOLETTI
The observance of Ash
Wednesday will be on Feb.
21. It begins the season of
Lent for Christians.
St. Andrew's Lutheran
Church in Jacksonville Beach
is one of many churches that
will observe Ash Wednesday.
Pastor Michael Blaker has
served as pastor of St.
Andrew's since 2001. He has a
Master of Divinity and a
Master of Theology Degree
from Lutheran Theological
Seminary in Columbia, South
Blaker provided the answers
to several questions about Ash
Wednesday and Lent.
What is Ash Wednesday?
"Ash Wednesday is the first
day of the season of Lent and
marks. the beginning of a40-
day period of penance and
On Ash Wednesday there is
a reflection on death and
mortality that we often try to
avoid in modern society. In
this Ash Wednesday reflec-
tion, Christians reconsider
life and death in relation to
their redeemed and trans-
formed life in Christ.
This reflection centers on a
call to repent from Joel 2;13,
"Return to the Lord your God
who is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding
in steadfast love, and relents
Ash Wednesday begins the
Lenten journey of reflecting
on those places in our lives
where we don't live as God
intends and turning away
from them to a new, richer,
fuller life in Christ.
As part of the Ash
Wednesday reflection, congre-
gations gather in worship
focused on repentance and as
a part of the service a cross of
ashes is imposed on each per-
What do the ashes
"At the imposition of ashes
on Ash Wednesday the words.
from Genesis 3:19 are said,
"Remember, 0 mortal, that
you are dust and to dust you
shall return" as the pastor
places the cross of ashes on
the individual's forehead.
The ashes signify both death
The ashes remind us that as
mortals we all will die but at
the same time they remind us
of the ground from which
God created humanity so we.
can also reflect on the prom-
ise of eternal life that comes
to us through Jesus Christ."
Are there special prayers
or services for the obser-
vance of Ash Wednesday?
"In congregations that
impose ashes, there will be

Tu B' SHEVAT
one or several special worship
services on Ash Wednesday.
In the Lutheran tradition,
the focus of the service is on
repentance and forgiveness
utilizing a rite of corporate
confession and forgiveness,
reading of scripture, and
prayers that call us to recog-
nize that we are sinners in
need of God's grace, mercy,
Where do churches
obtain the ashes?
"The ashes used on Ash
Wednesday can be purchased
from liturgical supply stores
but a long standing tradition
at many congregations,
including St. Andrew's, is to
save the palm branches from
the previous year's Palm
Sunday and burn them to
make the ashes used in the
Ash Wednesday liturgy.
Generally, non-woody plant
materials like the palm
branches from Palm Sunday
are used to make the ashes
because under certain circum-
stances wood ashes can cause
caustic burns. Not a good
thing on someone's forehead!
At St. Andrew's, I mix the
ashes with a little olive oil for.
better cohesion of the ashes
and easier imposition at the
Ash Wednesday service."

Wednesday has been observed

ditions: Roman Catholics,
In recent years, some
Evangelical and Pentecostal
congregations have been
adding Ash Wednesday servic-
es." Most people are aware of
Mardi Gras and other celebra-
tions before Ash Wednesday.

"In Western Christian tradi-
tions there are no specific reli-
gious observances for "Fat or
Shrove Tuesday" however at
St. Andrew's and many other
congregations there is a tradi-
tion of eating pancakes on the
Tuesday before Ash
Ancient Christian traditions
required people to give up
butter, milk, and sugar as a
form of fasting for Lenten dis-
The easiest way to get rid of
those foods before Lent was to
make pancakes and have a
communal feast and celebra-
tion and the Tuesday before
Ash Wednesday. While this
is not a religious rite, it is a
classic Christian tradition in
some places that the church
host a pancake dinner on the

The man behind the Gate River Run
Most people think of him
as "that guy who puts
on all the races." He is
that and more. In fact, since the
late 1970s, Doug Aired has been
the single most influential per-
son on Jacksonville's running
On March 10, for the 25th
time Alred will be the Race
Director of Jacksonville's world-
renowned event, the Gate River
Run. But who is this man
behind the scenes and how did
he become Jacksonville's undis-
puted Running Guru?
Oddly enough, in 1978 the
man who one day would own
three running specialty stores
didn't even own a pair of run-
ning shoes. Alred's first love was
basketball, a sport he excelled in
all through high school and col-
lege in his native Kentucky.
Employed as a certified public
accountant Alred spent his free
time playing basketball in the
Jacksonville City League.
One of his workmates, Ty
Paine, knew that Alred ran a bit
to keep in shape for basketball
and challenged him to run a
new race with him, the River
"I was living in Baymeadows
Apartments at the time and
there was a loop. around the
complex that I knew was a mile
and a half long because I meas-
ured it in my car," Aired
explained. "I thought, this race
is 9.3 miles and my mentality
was, that's an awfully long way.
"So I set off in my Converse
All Star Chuck Taylors and ran a
loop. Then I thought, 'I'll run
one more;' then I'll try one
more, did that, then did anoth-
er. I ended up running ten and a
half miles. The next day I could-
n't even move!" Aired recalled
with a laugh.
Paine convinced Alred he
needed some proper running
shoes and sent him to
Jacksonville's first running store,
Phiddippides Running Center,
where he bought a pair of green
Alred found the difference
astonishing and "Over time I
got myself up to about 50 miles
a week. I did the race in about
64 minutes and finished about
"But I never thought, '199
people beat me.' I thought I
beat 2,000 others."
He developed into an accom-
plished racer, running 15
marathons, 14 of them between
2 hours and 29 minutes and 2
hours and 47 minutes, only
one-the first one-slower than
three hours. His best 10K time
was 32 minutes flat.
Alred's competitive career last-
ed 18 years, from 1978 to 1996.
Like so many others caught
up in the American running
boom Alred was severely bitten
by the running bug.
At the same time he hated
where he was working, quit, and
opened his own CPA firm. Still
dissatisfied, it only lasted a few
Then the idea of a running
store hit Aired and, along with
partner Doug Milne, in 1979
opened 1st Place Sports in
Milne's plan was to open sev-
eral branches of the store both
in and out of town. A second
store was opened in the
Normandy Shopping Center. It
became a short-lived failure.
They tried one in Jacksonville
Beach and it met with the same
fate. Over time, Aired bought
out Milne's share of the busi-
Never fully happy with the
Orange Park location in the
Kingsley Square Shopping
Center, Aired searched for a new
spot in Jacksonville's San Jose
In 1981, he was able to move
the store where he wanted it, in
the Lakewood Shopping Center
where it stayed for seven years
until it was moved once more to
site at the comer of
Baymeadows Rd. and San Jose
Blvd. where it remained for 19
years until Aired bought his
own building and moved less
than a block away in 2005.
He now owns two other
stores in Jacksonville Beach and
Orange Park. Between the stores,
the race management company,
the periodical Jacksonville
Event Guide the racing team,
the Jacksonville Grand Prix
series, the Web site and his
involvement in the JTC, Aired is
king of the running mountain.
It is his true love of the sport
that created it all.
He ran the first five River
Runs but a serious injury
incurred while running a
marathon forced Aired to'aban-
don any hope of doing it in
1983. At the time he was
already on the board of directors
of the Jacksonville Track Club,
the owners and organizers of
the River Run.
The club needed someone to
be the race director that year
and, since he couldn't run it, he
volunteered. He wasn't without
experience; he had organized
smaller races to promote the
sport and his store.
The River Run was a triumph
and Aired turned it into some-
thing it had never been before: a
financial success and cash cow
for the club.
It brought other rewards as
well. "After that, people started
calling me up asking if I would
direct their race for them," he
said. His race management busi-
ness was born.
By 1985, the boom was over
and running took a nosedive.
Alred recalled: "Basically run-
ning quit growing, races quit
growing, Jacksonville wasn't
growing. Some races folded up
and there were only a few
marathons left in Florida."
Alred's store went into a five-
Salvation came a decade or so
"The women came on the
running scene in the late '90s
and helped running boom again
and the cause-running (running
for charity) put it over the top,"
"I never thought I would see
more than one race in this town
with over 2,000 people in it, but
now there are five of them," he
Gate Petroleum Co. first
joined the River Run as a spon-
sor in 1985. The company
increased its support and
became the title sponsor in
In 1994, the River Run
stopped paying prize money to
international runners and
became the USA 15K National
Championship. Aired believes it
was the best decision they ever
made. He says another great
choice was dropping the labori-
ous, error-ridden, pull-tag results
system and going to computer-
ized ChampionChip timing.
He married runner Jane Ryan
'Heelys' are all the rage, but are
there any dangers for children?
J am sure that by now,

Watching the kids glide
around, I was envious of how
much fun Heelys looked, and

to get from my office to sur-

However, one false move

larity as of late. At present,
with some 4.5 million Heelys

course show a rise in Heelys
However, in the, two
months since Christmas, I
have only seen one child in
my office with a Heelys-relat-
ed injury. He tumbled for-
ward and got a hairline type
fracture of his wrist. I am cer-
tainly not seeing an epidemic
Many malls and schools
have banned Heelys due to
safety concerns. Officials sur-
mise that if we wouldn't let
you come in on rollerskates,
then of course we don't want
you on Heelys.
The biggest concern regard-
ing injury is head trauma,
such as a concussion. The
advertisers of Heelys have
said that they see them as
athletic gear, such as
rollerblades, even though
they are sold in regular shoe
stores, and Heelys executive
Charlie Beery says, "We
strongly encourage all the
kids to wear protective gear
whenever they can."
New production Heelys are
being labeled with a sticker, a
yellow label warning the
wearer about potential injury.
However, a look at the
Heelys website also shows
heelers crashing, jumping off
railings and flying into pools,
with no protective padding,
In 1994, a Singapore study
examined injuries sustained
by children using Heelys.
From February to August
2004, a total of 37 patients
with significant injuries sus-
tained while "heeling" were
Upper limb injuries were by

serious injuries despite their
relatively low speed.

Commission and the National
Sporting Goods Association
found that Heelys were rela-
For example, the study
found a much lower risk of
Heelys injury, 33 per 100,000
participants, than for basket-
ball, which had an injury rate
of 2,184 per 100,000 partici-
Heelys also showed an
injury rate that was only two
percent of the injury rate of
riding a bike.
So the take home message
is that Heelys are becoming
more and more popular, and
with that the injury rate will
rise. This of course occurs
anytime a new product hits
the market, such as
rollerblades, pogo sticks, or

Oscar-nominee 'The Queen' never strikes a bad note
est Picture Oscar nomi-
nee "The Queen" is a
fascinating look at class
distinctions in Britain in
this instance, as they were
played out following the
death of Lady Diana Spencer.
Diana's death came shortly
after the election of Tony
Blair (Michael Sheen) as
Britain,s Labor Prime Minister.
Blair quickly finds himself
between a rock and a hard
place. As the spokesman for
the "modernization" of
Britain, Blair is sympathetic to
the grieving British public
and feels that the monarchy
should react similarly. On the
other side of the dilemma is
Queen Elizabeth II (Helen
Mirren), who has spent her
life keeping a stiff upper lip
and now can't possibly under-
stand the hysterical public
reaction to the sensational
death of an ex-princess.
The crux of the movie's
story occurs in the week fol-
lowing Diana's death, during
which Blair struggles to help
the Queen understand how
important it is that the
monarchy display some
expression of grief, however
small. And small it will be (if
it comes at all), as the Queen
is encouraged in her emotion-
al repression by the Queen
Mother (Sylvia Syms) and her
crusty husband, Prince Philip
One would never have
guessed that getting the
Queen to make a simple
expression of grief would
require as much diplomacy
and machination as the for-
mation of a Middle East peace
treaty. And just a synopsis of
the movie's plot makes it
sound like a lesser episode of
But it turns out to be thor-
oughly engrossing, in no
small part due to Helen
Mirren's excellent portrayal of

Mofro holds CD release party tonight
by LIZA MITCHELL
JJ Grey & Mofro celebrates
the release of its third CD,
"Country Ghetto," with a
performance and release party
today at 8 p.m. at the Florida
Theatre. Tickets are $25.
Grey will also make an in-
store appearance at 4 p.m.
today at CD Connection,
1908 3rd St. S., Jacksonville
Grey said the band's new
CD title "Country Ghetto"
reflects his hometown roots
in a Aral part of North
"It's not only where I grew
up but how I grew up," he
said in a telephone interview
"It's the mentality, the
homogenization of cultures.
It happens everywhere, no
matter where you were raised.
It's just not always for the
Terry Dixon, owner of CD
Connection, said it is Grey's
commitment to purity that
makes him a modern day

his fans one at a time. A
friend will turn their friend
on to Mofro and it only takes
seeing them one time to get

music is all about. It means
something to him. That
Like previous releases
Blackwater and Lochloosa,
Grey's life features promi-
nently on "Country Ghetto."
Grey said the track "The
Sun is Shining Down" speaks
to him the most because it
tells a story of the day his
grandfather died en route to
the hospital with his grand-
mother by his side.
"The way he looked at her
and what he said," Grey said.
"I don't want to live in that
moment all the time but it
helps me remember."
Going into the studio as a
new member of the famed
blues label Alligator Records,
Grey said the band's
approach to song writing
remained unchanged but the
formula for the sound took
on a new life.
"This was the first time we
had background singers. The
strings and the horn section
makes it richer," he said. "It
sounds like the way I wanted
our first two records to sound
but we couldn't afford it."
Grey's times of scrimping
for gas money to get to the
next gig are long over. Mofro
plays the House of Blues in
Orlando Saturday and two
nights at Skipper's in Tampa
before embarking on an
extensive tour of the East
Coast that will take them to
New York, Boston and
Grey said he makes it a rule
to never be away form his

Some Valentine's gifts can be replanted
he azaleas, gardenias and
hydrangeas that you may
have purchased or
received for Valentine's Day
can be planted into the out-
doors after they've finished
giving you all their pleasure
inside, but chances are that
they will not do real well for
you for a few years.
Even though we do live in a
semitropical climate, these
plants are forced into early
bloom in the greenhouses
before being made available to
us. They go through a bit of a
shock with survival in the real
world when we put them out-
side, though we follow the
recommended planting sites
for their survival.
Don't be dismayed by them
if they seem to be looking
unhappy; just leave them
alone and hopefully, after one
season they will be happy
campers. I have increased my
hydrangea beds each Easter

gifts, and they've all done

Bulbs like these need to be
refrigerated in the fall for
about 60 days and then plant-

They will bloom within six
weeks and can be absolutely
gorgeous, but we have to take
on a different mindset about
them and simply know they
are disposable after that
I really do love flowers, and
have a few favorites as each of
you probably does as well.
Sometimes they are the ones
that cause the most trouble in
getting them to do well. One
of them is the shrimp plant;

takes on a very coarse appear-
ance after a year. Who cares
about the wood? I love the
flowers! My Easter lilies from
years past are also coming up,
and if the Mexican petunia
would mind its manners and
not go everywhere, I would be
thrilled to see pop up every-
where as well. Its flowers are
precious and so colorful, even
in the dead heat of summer.
Spring is on its way, and the
choice of flowers to plant will
soon be overwhelming. Some
will last only until the heat of
summer arrives, others might
make it through July, fizzling
when the daily rains come and
the humidity is relentless.
A few will seem like no-
brainers, especially to newcom-
ers who have come from places
further north. Plants like pan-
sies and snapdragons you
think of as being summer
bloomers are winter bloomers
here, and they will be slowly
declining when our tempera-

The tags on the plants may
confuse you because they will
say "full sun." But that does-
n't mean our "full summer

Producers, composers and
musicians in all genres
have for the last 49 years
been recognized for contribu-
tions to the music industry at
an annual event as glitzy as the
gold statuette bestowed.
The Grammy Awards held
Sunday proved no exception.
The red carpet lined up a veri-
table who's-who in the biz. Up
and comers like Chris Young
and Carrie Underwood walked
among legends like Tony
Bennett and Stevie Wonder.
That's what used to be so cool
about the Grammy's. It proved
that the artists are all peers
coming together for the com-
mon good to celebrate
eachother's musical visions, if
for only one night.
This year, the nearly three-
hour award ceremony was
more show than substance. It
was one over the top perform-
ance after another with a CNN-
ish ticker scrolling the names
of previous winners.
I can understand skipping the
lesser known categories and
"Polka in Paradise" by Jimmy
Sturr & his Orchestra definitely
isn't bringing sexy back but
several big name players were
glossed over, having been rec-'
ognized earlier in the evening.
Is the only way to hold our
attention to bombard us with .
an endless parade of light dis-
plays and booty shaking?
The tribute to the late, great
James Brown was appropriate
and moving, what with all the
fancy footwork from boyban-
der-turned-sex magnet Justin
Timberlake. The red cape over
the mic stand was a nice touch.
But the tributes to such
Lifetime Achievement honorees
as The Doors and The Grateful
Dead seemed like more gross
oversight than salute.
But to deny a legend like Bob
Dylan the right to publicly
accept awards for the year's

Speaking of which, The Dixie
Chicks were lauded repeatedly
for their answer to the uproar
they caused in 2003 when lead
singer Natalie Maines
announced at a live show that
the group was embarrassed to
hail from the same state as the
Commander in Chief. Formal
apologies were issued and state-
ments were made to attempt to
withdraw the comment and
snuggle up to the record buyers
in the red states that lowered
album sales and forced concert
In turn, they flipped the mid-
dle finger at the very country
demographic that made them
stars and hired veteran rock
producer Rick Rubin to careful-
ly craft the musical retraction
"Not Ready to Make Nice"
which won Song of the Year
and Record of the Year the
difference between the two still
escapes me. The album "Taking
the Long Way" also won Best
Album of the Year.
After Maines' incoherent
attempt at multiple acceptance
speeches, perhaps it's time to
implement a third quarter cut-
off period like they do at NFL
games to help the artists before

It might also help with diffi-
culties reading the
teleprompter. The Black Eyed
Peas' Fergie stumbled more
than once while speaking to
the importance of music educa-
tion in schools. This from a
woman who won for singing
about her "humps."

Grammy moment when home
audiences voted for her to per-
form a number with
Timberlake. (On American Idol,

Carrie Underwood continued
her success as country's latest
darling, snagging the Best New
Artist of the Year award after
snatching the rug out from

Choo's at the Country Music
Awards. She may have made it
on Idol, but her rendition of
The Eagle's "Desperado" was
"just aw-ight for me dog." She
proved that cleaning up nice
won't help you carry a tune.

kick off the night right with

stage for the first time since dis-
banding in 1982.

As helpless as a loon out of water
O h no, another call
about a sick bird on
the beach. It's been a
real problem this winter, with
nary anyone to turn to for
help. BEAKS is still closed,
and the Humane Society is
not set up to handle sick
seabirds, So, what to do?
Well, luckily, this call
turned out better than expect-
ed. I went over to look at the
bird, parked on the shore near
American Beach, and what I
found was a loon. The bird
looked ungainly sprawled on
the sand, and seemed unruf-
fled.when people approached
it closely. If it was any other
kind of bird, just maybe it
indeed was injured it sure
did look like something was
"broken" in the position it
was sitting in.
But this was a loon, a differ-
ent bird than most. Loons are
graceful swimmers, floaters
and flyers, which travel long
distances from their summer
breeding grounds in the
northern United States and
Canada here to our offshore
waters to wait out the cool
weather. Well, this particular
loon was waiting, that's for
The loon was stranded dur-
ing low tide, immobile on the
beach, and waiting for the
tide to come in. Unlikely as it
seems, loons cannot walk and
cannot take off in flight
unless they have a long
stretch of water to lift up
from. Loon legs are placed far
back on their body an ideal
position for paddling but use-
less on land. Hopefully, at the
next high tide this particular
loon managed lift off and
returned offshore to float
Although it may seem rea-
sonable to try to help a
stranded loon get back to the
water, this is not recommend-
ed for a non-expert to
attempt. Let's face it, a peli-
cansized bird with a sharp
stabbing beak is not an easy
individual to capture and
release. I know some folks
who tried this and they were
far more upset than the loon
by the time the episode was
over. Better to let it remain
undisturbed until the next
high tide comes and it can
Just maybe loons purpose-
fully land on beaches like ours
in the winter to rest a spell
before setting off. One beach-
goer I ran into, in fact, told
me that the day before anoth-
er loon or maybe the same
one was sitting on the beach
further north, near Peters
Point. As long as people or
dogs don't disturb them, at
the next high tide they are
ambulatory again. Here's hop-
ing these loons understand
the tide cycle and play their
That's better than a lot of
salt marsh kayakers I've run
into. No matter how vehe-
ment I am with non-natives
about the tide cycle and the
strong currents and the shal-
low waters and changing con-
ditions they may be faced
with during a'four-hour kayak
rental, there are always some
people who know it all they
Like a loon, if they don't
pay attention at low tide they
too may ultimately be strand-
ed on mudflats with no water
beneath them until the tide
comes in once more. Kayaks,
like loons, need some water
beneath them to move. And
human legs, like loons legs,
are not designed for walking
in mud flats either.
An understanding of the
tides is essential for fisher-
men, and salt marsh kayakers
and loons, and tidal cycles are
important for their role in
shaping our natural world.
One of the reasons beaches
are such interesting places to
spend time is due to the
changing water conditions.
Where one day a walk on the
beach reveals shallow pools
and eddies and sandbars, a
walk at the same place at
another time may involve a
difficult hike through soft
sand above the high tide line.
With each cycle of the tide,
the beach is renewed again
and there is a new mystery of
what will wash up next, and
what will wash away. In win-
ter, the tides and currents and
winds are strong, and who
knows what you will find
every time you venture to the
beach. And if you do see a
loon, take photos from a dis-
tance and wish it well for its
journey back to sea at the
next high tide.

zoologist and biodiversity spe-
cialist. Contact her at patand-
firstname.lastname@example.org with nature
questions and observations.
