A super market could return to central Jacksonville
Beach if store representatives agree to fund a portion of
road improvements needed to mitigate traffic concerns
on two arterial roadways.
Publix Super Market is considering opening a new
29,160-square-foot store on a three-acre parcel at the
southeast corner of 5th Street South and Beach
Boulevard at the site of the former McCormick proper-
Craig Buchanan, president of WestCrest
Development Inc., said in a letter to Planning and
Development Director Steve Lindorff that he antici-
pates the Publix project will be complete and open by
The project would also utilize the existing 4,714-
square-foot Aamco Transmission property and the Bella
Vista Del Mar Sales Center in the former Haden Ham
location, according to plans filed with the city.
The project would consist of a 29,160-square-foot
Publix Super Market with approximately 4,870-square-
feet of ancillary retail space for a total of a 34,030-
square-foot shopping center development.
A road capacity analysis was recently completed by
the city's traffic engineer. The developer will reimburse
the city for the cost of the study.

Jacksonville Beach officials are fighting to
protect an easement that they say will
impact future developments along a por-

Rose and Ken Taylor, owners of the Beach
Marine property at 2315 Beach Blvd., are
requesting the Florida Inland Navigation
District (FIND) to release an existing ease-
"For the most part, they said the ease-
ment is causing, problems with finding a
buyer," Jacksonville City Councilman Art
Graham said Thursday. "They can't do
what they want with the property."
According to Graham, Beach Marine is
looking to refinance to move forward and
increase business, although he added that
they have not provided any specific infor-
Ken Taylor said he is only seeking to clear
a "cloud on the title" to his property and
said the land is his and not public property.
He said if city officials are concerned
about a "community impact" they should
explain it to him..
"They keep asking me what my plans are
and I have no plans for it," Taylor said.
City officials in Jacksonville and

for preserving public access to the water-

"My biggest argument is even if you do
release it, don't until we know what we are
going to do with the property," he said. "It's
a great piece of property."

AB mulls sanitation pact
The city of Atlantic Beach will
examine a new sanitation con-
tract that would allow for same
day garbage, yard and recycling
collection as well as an ordi-
nance to change the sanitation
procedures at a meeting
An ordinance to repeal a
chapter of the current solid
waste and recycling ordinance
and establish an entirely new
chapter will be presented to the
commission Monday, according
to Public Works Director Rick
Carper. The changes are neces-
sary to support the proposed
sanitation contract with Waste
Services Inc, which will change
the current residential garbage
collection from twice per week
collection to once per week col-
lection and use a semi-automat-
ed collection, according to
The new ordinance would
require residents to use toters,
which are 96-gallon collection
bins nearly three times the size
of a standard garbage can,
according to Commissioner
Sylvia Simmons it would also
increase residential rates from
$13.60 to $17.10 per month and
restrict setting out yard waste in
a container to the night before
collection. Commercial rates
will increase to between $5.37
and $6.46 per cubic yard.
Commercial and multi-family
residential services who use
dumpsters will be "essentially
unchanged," according to

to Penman Road.
It states that the deficiency

and the realignment of

"The developer of the pro-
posed shopping center could
potentially help to finance
these, or other, improve-
ments," engineers concluded.
In addition, potential
improvements at 3rd Street
and Beach Boulevard could
help facilitate pedestrian access
to the store, the report said.
"Pedestrian movements are
currently hindered in this area
due to the fact that the inter-
section of A1A and Beach

capacity," the study said.

Closing the alleyway will not
have an impact on traffic and
the project will not requirelany
of the surrounding streets to be
closed to through traffic, Mann
The city's planing staff has
issued a preliminary recom-
mendation of approval to
abandon the alley, but the City
Council is required to approve
such a request by resolution.
Such action can only be taken
after the city approves a PUD
which has not yet been
requested by the developer.
Access to the proposed store
is available from Beach
Boulevard, Shetter Avenue,
Fourth and Fifth streets south.
According to the findings,
the proposed shopping center
will' generate approximately
1,460 gross daily trips and 128

new increase of 1,280 gross

But one Nease High School
student will be using the time
to iron out details for a fishing
tournament he founded when
his father was undergoing
treatment for colon cancer.
Jordan Carroll of Ponte
Vedra Beach, 17, a junior at
Nease, wants to add to the
$15,000 that was raised last
summer during the first fishing
"Anglers for a Cure" tourna-
ment, which drew 23 boats to
Sister's Creek in Jacksonville.
"This is the first step toward
finding a cure," Carroll said in
a recent interview. "We all saw
what he [his father, Doug
Carroll] had to go through, and
I don't want other kids or fam-
ilies to go through this, either."
Doug Carroll's colon cancer
was diagnosed in November
2004, shortly after he, his wife
Ralene, and their two children,
Jordan, then 14, and Whitney,
then 17, took a weekend trip to'
Virginia for a family wedding.
The weekend came to a close
with Doug, 46, experiencing
severe stomach pains and dis-
comfort. Less than two years
later, on July 9, 2006, he passed
The Nease teen said he and
his father had spent time
together fishing, talking about
cars and hanging out, so the
idea of a fishing tournament
came to him in 2005, about a
month after his father started.
Jordan 's collaborator on the
tournament is also his best
friend, Matt Hahnemann. The
two have been best friends
since first grade, and
Hahnemann has been there
every step of the way because
of Jordan's Dad and the strug-
gles he went through.
The two friends found corpo-
rate sponsors to fund the fish-
ing tournament. The friends
share a partnership, working as
a team toward the goal of early

The winner of the competi-
tion must achieve a "Triple

a big smile. Catching and
attaining the heaviest com-
bined weight of red fish, speck-
led sea trout and flounder will
determine the winner.
Last year, the average team

sisted of two men. It is a

Carroll said the feeling he
had before and after the t6ur-
nament was amazing. Just
knowing that people are out
on the water and participating
in something that the teens are
so passionate about is enough
for them, he said.
He hopes he is. helping to
change the lives of others for
the better, he said, adding that
he thinks his Dad "would be

After lung cancer, colon can-
cer is the most common cause
of cancer deaths for men and
women combined. The cure
rate is 90 percent if the cancer
is detected early, according to
Dr. Ron Brown, a former emer-
gency physician from Orlando,
Screening tests can be used
to detect certain pre-cancerous
growths in the colon and rec-
tum, allowing them to be
removed before they ever
develop into cancer, according

Goal of fame is misplaced
'll wear a blond shag hair-
cut, a leisure suit and sing a
syrupy Barry Manilow tune.
If that doesn't get me onto
'American Idol,' Simon Cowell
can eat his own head."
"Ah, yes, you sum up
America's fascination with fame
and celebrity. Both are explored
in 'Fame Junkies,' an interesting
new book by Jake Halpem.
"Did you know that more
people watch 'American Idol'
than all three major network

"It's no wonder. Things
haven't been as compelling
since Rather left the air."
"Did you know, according to a
study by Harvard University
and the Kaiser Family
Foundation, that 31 percent of
teens are' convinced they'll be
famous? They believe they're
entitled to fame -- that it will
solve all their problems."
"It'll solve my problems. The
waitress at the diner will finally
go out with me."
"Halpern interviewed 653
middle-school students in
Rochester, N.Y. \When he asked
them if they'd rather be a,-. pr-
sonal assistant to a celebrity, a
corporate CEO, an Ivy League
president, a Navy SEAL or a U.S.
senator, 43.4 percent of girls
chose 'celebrity assistant.'"
"I'd rather do chores for a
celebrity than be a senator.
Though I have to admit rubbing
cream on Rosie O'Donnell's
bunions would get a little old."
"When given the option of
becoming famous, beautiful,
stronger or smarter, boys chose
fame almost as often as intelli-
gence. Girls chose fame even
"That isn't a fair question.
Fame has nothing to do with
intelligence. Isn't that made
clear every time Hollywood
actors open their yaps?"
"Our longing for fame is a
recent phenomenon. Consider:
In 1963, according to Gallup,
Americans most admired
Lyndon Johnson, Winston
Churchill and Martin Luther
King Jr. In 2005, Bono and
Donald Trump topped the list."
"Halpem told me there are
two types of kids who long for
fame most the spoiled opi.s
whose parents taught them
they were the center of the uni-
verse, and kids who were under-
appreciated by their parents."
"Talk about under-appreciat-
ed. My mother used to hang a
Budweiser around my neck so
the old man would read to me."
"The longing also correlates to
the self-esteem movement of
the 1970s. By praising every-
thing children did, adults
unwittingly created teens and
young adults who can't take
criticism and who demand the
praise they think fame will
"Ah, the good old days. When
we played kickball, we weren't
permitted to compete, and
everybody got a trophy!"
"The result is that we've creat-
ed a society of young narcissists.
Five psychologists just released
an interesting study. It found
that today's college kids are
more narcissistic than previous
generations. Narcissists tend to
lack empathy. They're con-
sumed with self-love. They
crave fame because they want
the adulation of millions."
"I don't need to be adored by
millions. But a few hundred
thousand would be nice."
"Freud had a term for what is
going on: wishful thinking.
We've created a generation of
kids who are lost in a fantasy
world. They see themselves as
they'd like to be, rather than as
they really are. You have to
wonder what happens when
people who crave fame fail to
achieve it or when people who
achieve it realize it doesn't solve
their problems and ends up cre-
ating even more.
"It makes me realize how
lucky I was to grow up as I did.

Beach community, a failing
business, Selva Marina Country
Club (SMCC), has been allowed
to assault the character of
Atlantic Beach with the sanc-
tion of the Community
Development Board. "Suck it
up!" is what the Chairman of
the Community Development
Board, Sam Jacobson, stated as
his position on SMCC's request
to build over 100 homes on 27
acres of land. Too bad for those
of you opposed to building
PUDs in the middle of Atlantic
Beach; "Suck it up". Thanks for
your carefully thought out rem-
edy, Mr. Chairman.
The land where SMCC stands
was given to them as a gift, a
gift to the entire community. It
was not a gift to a select few
who would butcher it after they
failed to properly manage their
club. Now, as a result of poor
club management they are sell-

their own purpose which is not

Unless the Commissioners
and Mayor of Atlantic Beach
stop SMCC, residents should
prepare for more pollution (car,
noise and chemical) and chron-

the immediate future. This

Neptune Beach lost their
fight against Wal-Mart because
Wal-Mart made their applica-
tion days before Neptune Beach
got a law on the books to pre-

time for Atlantic Beach to
decide what their future is
going to be. Atlantic Beach has
the opportunity to prevent a
change by simply saying "no."
"No, SMCC", we are not going
to allow you to disrupt our
lifestyle and pollute our com-
munity because of your inabili-
ty to manage your business!
Mr. Mayor and City commis-
sioners, say "no" to SMCC or
else the citizens of Atlantic

and have 200 plus cars driving
down Seminole Road. to Wal-
Mart every weekend.
Greed overwhelms the best interests of community
To the editor:
This is a sad time for Neptune
Beach and the people who care
about this community. We
thought we could make a differ-
ence. That our opinions really
mattered. That we would be
heard. And we would prevail
and be able to keep Wal-Mart
out of Neptune Beach.
We were hopeful and opti-
mistic even when we heard
from the beginning of all this -
a year ago that one person
from the city council, Eric
Pardee, said that he "loves"
Wal-Mart and welcomes them
to our community.
Even then, when we realized
his concerns were not about the
negative effect Wal-Mart would
have on Neptune Beach, we still
worked toward our goal of pro-
tecting our neighborhood. We
thought we had a chance when
there was arbitration. So much
for that. Well, it isn't an old
Jimmy Stewart movie folks,
where it all works out in the
best interest of the community.
This is our own reality show -
where greed and the best inter-
est of the developers prevail
over the best interest of our

Have a slightly younger
cousin named Jay, who
shares my passion for driv-
ing like no one else in my fam-

important, his garage.

raining, we'll take it out in the
morning for a spin! She runs
like a top, but the speedometer
sticks every now and then.

was my chance to pilot a true

High mock trial team's trip to
the state tournament.

is a captain's choice format with
a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The
cost is $75 for an individual;
$300 per foursome; $425 per
foursome with sponsor and
$200 for corporate sponsor. All
proceeds benefit the mock trial
team's trip to the state tourna-
ment in Orlando March 28 to
"We've had tremendous suc-
cess with the mock trial team,"
said Ed Lange, Fletcher Law
instructor who led the team to
the state title and 10th in the
nation in 1997 and the top four
in the state six times since
"We are self sufficient. The
school board gives us nothing
and the money just isn't coming
in from the attorneys like it used
to. We used to get 40 attorneys
to give us $100 and that would
cover the expenses but
it's getting increasingly more
difficult every year to get that."
Lange said the team needs
between $4,000 and $5,000 to
cover hotel, rental van, and
food. Lange, also the Fletcher
boys head golf coach, decided to
host a golf tournament to raise
money for the trip.
Fletcher has represented
Duval County in the fourth dis-
trict circuit every year but two

in 1991. Lange estimated about
150 students in the Fletcher
Law mock trial program have

Every year students perform a
two-hour criminal or civil trial.

the Florida Coastal Storms program. He explained
.that he primarily involved in the operation of a

The program was first established in Florida and
scientists used the St. Johns River basin as the
focal area for a series of nine projects which were
initiated with the guideline of helping communi-

The goal of the program, he said, is to "assist
coastal communities to mitigate the impact of
storms by developing new tools, data, informa-
tion, forecast models and training."
.The computerized model is a "calculus-based
numerical representation of the atmosphere,"
according to Welsh.
Welsh said he was "convinced from the begin-
ning this was the kind of thing we needed in
Florida to get better forecasts."
The program and this model will help coastal
communities better prepare for storms, he said.

The Renaissance Classical
Orchestra is a virtuoso strain
ensemble of international
soloists gathered from
around the world. Now un-
der the leadership of the
multi-talented violinist, Sergiu Schwartz, this Florida- based
chamber orchestra draws on a rich repertoire, encompassing
works from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20" Cen-
tury. They are an exceptionally energetic group of virtuoso
string soloists who move beyond classical performance to
bring music to new audiences. The orchestras dynamic vir-
tuosity and intimate style will entertain and challenge every-
one. The musicians stand in performance, and are featured
throughout the season as soloists. Because all of the RCO
musicians are leaders, the orchestra rotates its concertmas-
ters and principal players.
Sergiu Schwartz's appearances in NorthAmerica, Europe and
Israel have brought unanimous critical accolades for his beau-
tiful tone, brilliant technique, distinctive style and elegance.
As the winner of the Artists International Competition, Mr.
Schwartz gave a recital at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall. The
New York Times called this sold- out performance "an im-
pressive, authoritative and surging performance.

Marriage Retreat at
Neptune Baptist Church
A Marriage Weekend Retreat
will be held today and tomor-
row at Neptune Baptist Church.
Bobby and Peggy Powell, lay
ministers from Kentsville
Baptist Church in Chesapeake,
Virginia will lead the retreat.
The Powells, who have led
many marriage conferences, will
address ways to promote
"healthy and happy marriages"
based on insights from the
Bible said Tanya McAvoy,
Minister of Education and
Evangelism at Neptune Baptist.
"The divorce rate is so high
and we believe the answer is in
the Bible," she said.
Some of the topics to be cov-
ered during the retreat include
"The Good, Bad, and the Ugly of
Marriage; So This is Marriage;
True Love from God's Word, and
the Billion Dollar Solution."
The opening session of the
retreat begins at 6:30 p.m. with
hors d'oeuvres being served in
the church Fellowship Hall at
407 Third Street in Neptune
Tomorrow, the retreat begins
with a luncheon at noon and
concludes at 4 p.m.
The retreat is open to the
community. The cost is $15 per
person which includes child-
Registration will be taken

Anyone interested can also reg-
ister at the church at the begin-
ning of the retreat.
Following the retreat,
Neptune Baptist will begin 6-
week "Building Strong
Marriages" Bible Studies that
will meet in the evening, said
Anyone from the retreat who
is interested in continuing will
be encouraged to join these
small group studies, she said.
Divorce Care at Palm
A new session of the 13-week
Divorce Care Class will begin,
at Palm Valley Baptist Church
on Wednesday, March 14.
"People go through a grieving
process following a divorce,"
said Joe Wright, Facilitator for
Divorce Care is a Christ-based,
faith-based approach to working
through the experience of being
divorced. The classes help peo-
ple adjust to life changes result-
ing from divorce.
Wright, who is a member of
Palm Valley Baptist Church, is
married but has experienced a
divorce in his own life. This will
be the third time he has led the
Divorce Care Class at Palm
Valley Baptist, he said.
There are many life changes
following a divorce and depres-
sion and loneliness are not
uncommon, said Wright.
I People are coping with child
care and custody changes,
financial challenges, a nd
changes in relationships.
An important consideration
after a divorce is also under-
standing "what not to do....such
as not jumping into another
relationship, said Wright.
In the Divorce Care classes,
Wright uses videos featuring
members of the clergy and
Small group discussions fol-
low, allowing everyone an
opportunity to talk. An impor-
tant question asked at every
meeting is "how was your
week," he said.
People are vulnerable follow-
ing a divorce. At Divorce Care,
the fact that this is a safe envi-
ronment for sharing is impor-
"We tell people that what's
said in the room, stays in the
room," said Wright.
"We try td minister to you
and get life back on track....In
the end, we try to work toward
forgiveness," he said.
Childcare is provided since
this is often an important con-
cern for single parents. The
church also has a Wednesday
evening dinner at 6 p.m.
People attending Divorce
Care are welcome to attend the
dinner with their children and
make a small contribution for
the meal, said Wright.
Divorce Care begins at 6:30
p.m. and usually concludes by 8
to 8:30 p.m.
There is no charge for the
class. Participants are asked to
purchase a workbook which
costs $10. Contact the church
office at 285-2447 for informa-
tion; the church is located at
4890 Palm Valley Road in Ponte
Divorce Care is an inter-faith
experience. It is open to anyone
and most of those who attend
are not members of Palm Valley
Baptist, said Wright
"We are not looking to con-
vert anyone. It is an outreach to
the Ponte Vedra community."
We encourage people "to
come and get better and get
over the pain," said Wright.

Senators overcome errors to upend Commanders
For a fledgling girls lacrosse
program, Fletcher made a good
impression on Nease head
coach Mindy McCord Tuesday
night. While the Panthers easily
handled the Senators 15-4, the
Nease coach came away liking
what she saw.
"That's the best first-year
team I've seen,"
McCord said. "I

The Panthers regrouped to
score 12 unanswered goals and
*-S'.- took a 10-goal lead at the break.
Jess Gimbel led the way, finding
the back of the net six times
while teammate Anna Eglin
had a pair of goals.
Because of the Panthers' 10-
point lead, the'second half
began with a running clock as
mandated by Florida High
School Athletic Association
rules. Nease substituted liberally
and some junior varsity players
shuffled in and out of the line-
up as the Panthers maintained
their, advantage but tried not to
run up the score. It was 14-2
before Senators attacker Molly
Bole netted a pair of goals to
bring the game a little closer.
"We expected this to be a
learning experience and it was,
but you know, our girls never
let down and they had a lot of
fun," said Senators head coach
"We need to continue to play
teams like Nease. It's the only
way we're going to get better. I

according to White House
While the exact cause of the
blood clot cannot be deter-
mined, there is a significant
association of international
flights and blood clots, com-
monly referred to as "econo-
my class syndrome."
Flyers who are at greatest
risk are those with varicose
veins or cancer, smokers, indi-
viduals with history of leg
clots, recent leg surgery or
injury, pregnant women,
women taking birth control
pills or hormone-replacement
therapy, overweight individu-
als, elderly people, and very
tall people (because they may
not be able to move their legs
around as much).
Patients at high risk are
encouraged to take aspirin
prior to departure and wear
compressive hose to reduce
their risk of developing a clot.
Blood clots can form in the
lower extremities of those per-
sons who are inactive for both
long periods of time, such as
seen with illness, lower leg
fractures, or major surgery,
but it can also occur in those
inactive for short periods of
time, as seen in cross-country
or cross-Atlantic travel.

clot in the leg is commonly
associated with swelling and
pain in the calf. Most blood
clots are small and are not life
threatening, but may require
hospitalization for initial
The more serious ones, deep
vein thromboses can be life
threatening, for they can dis-
lodge from the wall of the

In patients undergoing
major orthopedic surgery
such as joint replacements,
doctors preventatively treat
these patients with blood
thinners such as aspirin,
heparin or coumadin to
decrease the chances of form-

are at risk for many reasons;
including the fact that blood
tends to pool within the legs
during the surgery itself, and
for the fact that they are not
likely to be immediately

to decrease the chances of
forming a clot include the use

I spent a good part of last
Friday manning a Master
Gardener booth at the Home
and Patio Show, and the
majority of people who had
questions were newcomers.
They were confused about
everything we grow here,
especially the "ugly, crab-
grass-like lawn grass." Of
course, you and I know they
are referring to St. Augustine
grass. (My previous two
columns were on turf grasses-
and the ways different vari-
eties perform in our climate.)
Most of the questions had
to do with the usual, "What
can I grow here?" "How do I
take care of my lawn?" "How
do I attract butterflies and
hummingbirds?" "What veg-
etables can I grow?" and
"Why is the soil so sandy?"
Questions such as these
kept me occupied for the six
hours I was at the show,
which confirmed by belief
that new arrivals and new
homeowners should have
someone like myself and or a

Norbit (Eddie Murphy) shows Kate (Thandie Newton), his childhood sweetheart, that nice guys sometimes finish first in the comedy
"Norbit." The film is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, some nudity and language.
Jackson electric in 'Black Snake Moan'
"Black Snake Moan" doesn't
begin to hide its trash origins;
if fact, it embraces them. But
the movie gets at something,
ahd it does so far more effec-
tively than recent, higher-
toned movies such as "Babel."
SThe movie's premise at first
seems hopeless. Rae (Christina
Ricci) is an outrageous
SSamuel L.. lacksoni is a broken-
down blues singer whose ife
has just left him. One day,
Lazarus finds Rae at the side of
a road near his home, beaten
and near death.
. He goes to town to get some
medicine for Rae and finds out
about her seedy reputation.
Out of nowhere, Lazarus
divines a cure for what ails Rae:
He chains Rae to the radiator
in his front room and, in
essence, says that she won't be,
released until her demons are
That premise alone is going
to elicit at least two reactions
from the movie's potential
Feminists will carp about an
older man passive-aggressively
chaining up a woman because
he thinks it's for her own good.
Then there are the lascivious
men in the audience who will
lick their lips and say, "Ooh,
man! Christina Ricci in
But surprisingly, once the
movie gets past its sweaty,
Southern Gothic beginning,
the characters really start to
unveil some interesting layers.
Ricci takes what could have
been a simple, tacky role and
gives it some genuine depth.
Her take on Rae reminds me of
Jodie Foster in "The Accused" --
showing a woman's vulnerabili-
ty in the face of her supposed
worldliness and sexual vora-
And Jackson, after sleepwalk-
ing through "Snakes on a
Plane," once again twitches
with electricity. It's as if his
Bible-spouting hitman from
"Pulp Fiction" suddenly got a
mirror stuck in his face to show
him that he has a few of his
own demons to conquer.
' VThe'cast is uniformly excel"'-

effective as Rae's erstwhile
lover. "Law & Order's" S. Epatha
Merkerson is a sunny presence
throughout, providing some
joy to counter Jackson's gravi-
tas. And John Cothran Jr. takes
a stereotypical role -- a very
preachy preacher -- and turns it
The scene where his charac-
ter explains his concept of
heaven is a metaphor for all of
the movie's characters -- cut-
ting through the guff and get-
ting to what really matters.
At its center, "Black Snake
Moan" is about an old codger
condescending to save a young
girl's soul and realizing how

It's time again to go over the
rainbow -- or at least, over the
Buckman Bridge, as the Orange
Park Mall hosts its annual
"Wizard of Oz Day" on Sat.,
Mar. 10, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
How much of an "Oz" buff
are you? Test yourself with
these 10 nuggets of golden -- er,
1. "The Wizard of Oz" is said
to be the most "referenced"
movie of all time. The movie's
entry at the Internet Movie
Database lists hundreds of
other movies and TV shows
that have made references to or
jokes about it.
2. In the song "If I Were
King," the Cowardly Lion asks,
"What makes the Sphinx the
Seventh Wonder?" Well he
should ask, since the World's
Seventh Wonder is actually the
Sphinx's neighbor, the Great
Pyramid of Giza.
3. The Scarecrow didn't know
his trivia either; watch him gar-
ble up algebra's Pythagorean
Theorem near the movie's end.
Ray Bolger, who played the
Scarecrow, never got it right
during filming, so Fleming sim-
ply used Bolger's best take of it.
4. Jack Haley Jr., the son of
the actor who played the Tin
Man, later married Liza
Minnelli, the daughter of Judy
Garland (the movie's Dorothy).
5. MGM's first choice to play
The Wizard, W.C. Fields, was
nixed when Fields demanded
too much money. A year later,
Margaret Hamilton ("Oz's"
Wicked Witch) matched wits
with Fields in "My Little .
6. How did Dorothy's house
fall from the sky? The sky was
painted on the floor. As the
camera rolled, unseen hands
moved a toy house from the
floor to mid-air. Then the film
ware versed. . '
7. Watch'ftl' scene where
lorothy leaves her black-and-
white house -- appearing sec-
onds later, with no cutaway, in
the Technicolor land of Oz. In
pre-CGI 1939, Judy Garland
and her stand-in both had to
play Dorothy in the same shot.
8. The movie lost money
upon its initial release, even
though it was enormously pop-
ular. More kids than adults saw
the movie, and kids' tickets
were much cheaper. The movie
didn't go into profit until
MGM sold it to CBS for its first
network broadcast in 1956.
9. Judy Garland had it rough
all over. MGM thought she was
too chubby, so they fed her
appetite suppressants all
through filming, beginning her
lifelong drug addiction. Haley
and Lahr resented Garland
because they figured she'd try
to upstage them. When
Garland kept laughing during
her first scene with the Lion,
director Fleming subdued
Garland by slapping her face.
10. The day Judy Garland
died, a tornado touched down

Otters, then and what they've become
It's no surprise to any of you
who regularly read this col-
umn, but otters are far and
away my favorite animal on
Earth. I spent decades in inter-
national conservation efforts
for the otters in the world and
put much of my energy into
generating interest for those
four rare otter species in Asia.
Well, these Asian otter conser-
vation efforts are still ongoing,
and my Asian colleagues have
even discovered a fifth species
that we had long thought to be
My international otter work
as chairman of the IUCN
(World Conservation Union)
"Otter Specialist Group" for
years was my profession but
my attachment to the four
individual North American
river otters that I handraised
and kept for educational pur-
poses at Marine World in
California was my soul.
"Albion" and "Delta" were
two North American river
otters orphaned in California,
which I raised under a state
wildlife permit. "Bayou" and
"Cajun came from Louisiana, a
trapping state, and I brought
them back as infants under per-
mit to join them. I raised these
otters on bottles, and coddled
them, and found them secure
housing at Marine World-Africa
USA, where Bucko and I
worked. "My" otters lived out
their lives with us at the zoo.
As it turned out, these four ani-
mals imprinted on people, and
on me in particular. For the
dozen or more years of their
life, I was always "Mom" and
part of their clan.
I could always enter their
enclosures with impunity, and
harness them and take them
for education walks in the park
to explain about their role in
the natural world. Otters are
keystone animals, and indica-
tors of healthy freshwater wet-
lands. That was these otters'
purpose and one of my pri-
mary roles as Education
Director of Marine World to
inform the public about the
importance of wetlands, and
otters and otter-based ecosys-
I could leave for six months
to do my Ph.D. studies on
otters in Malaysia, but whenev-
er I returned, they heard my
voice, and ran to the fence, and
sniffed me, and dissolved into
happy "Hmm, hmm, hmm"
chuckles of greeting. In
moments I was back in their
cage, with my kids clambering
over me, demanding attention.
They loved me indeed their
entire life, and I loved them.
Unfortunately, when they
matured these imprinted otters
began to view other humans as
"otters from a different tribe."
When they began to get territo-
rial, and in the wild would
have scent-marked their habitat
with their scat (feces) chasing
other otters away, they tried to
"mark" their enclosure similar-
ly. Of course, the humans in
their skewed world could not
read these "go-away" signs like
other otters would.
The bloody battles between
my otters and all other people
I could always walk them on
their leashes in front of the
public all around Marine World
but kept them biting distance
away from people. Bucko was
in charge of the sea lion train-
ers and otter keepers (otters are
too free-spirited to be happily
trained) and the otters were
penned in one area, while his
staff cleaned another without
directly contacting them.
We learned from the otters'
Great Escape when they
attacked the early-morning
landscape crew causing 30 or.
more deep crushing bite

Mystery Writer at
mystery writer James W. Hall
will be at The Bookmark, 299
Atlantic Blvd., Atlantic
Beach, at 7 p.m. March 13 to
read from and sign copies of
his new book "Magic City."
Hall is the author of numer-
ous mysteries, including
"Rough Draft," "Forests of
wounds on the two weakest
landscapers the two unable to
climb trees to escape the angry
pack. Unbeknownst to the gar-
deners, the otters had scent-
marked the area with their
Keep Away signs, and the peo-
.ple failed to heed them. When
I got there to recapture them,
the four otters clambered
around me, happy at defending
their territory and chuckling
excitedly "Hmm, Hmm, Hmm,
Mom, we got them, we chased
them away for good!" I carried
them back to their pen, then
faced the music.
My otters were imprinted on
humans but wild North
American otters are not and
they pose no danger to people.
In natural environments, like
the remaining few freshwater
patches of the "Wild Heart of
Amrelia," otters are always a
pleasure to watch for those for-
tunate enough to see them.
Just a few weeks ago river
otters were seen mating in the
south end of the Egans Creek
Greenway. And most everyone
with a retention pond with any
habitat left sees the "Three
Stooges," a resident trio that
still manages to roam up and
down the island.
Otters, like bobcats and most
other large mammals, need to
travel widely to find mates and
seasonal food sources. The
remaining freshwater habitat of
the Greenway provides a
wildlife corridor for them, with
cover and fresh drinking water.
This Wild Heart of Amelia is
key to their survival on our
As long as the saltwater
intrusion is stopped and fresh-
water habitat is restored along
the south end of the Greenway
just maybe it is possible to keep
otters in our world. At least, it's
worth a try.

W ine improves with
age. The older I get,
the better I like it.
Years ago, 1 dated a wine
importer after I graduated
from college. I have few rec-
ollections of this particular
person, but it was then my
love of wine began: All wine
regions have their wonders -
from German and French
wines that were more com-
mon twenty years ago to
today's popular Australian
and prized American wines.
It seems that with each
passing year the interest in
wine grows. Today it's com-
mon to see wine refrigerators
sold at home centers and dis-
count grocers. And, more
people. are drinking wine,
too. According to a CBS
report last year, of the people
who said they drink alcohol,
about 40% of those drank
wine, rising from a low of
27% in 1992 to 40% in 2005.
Fine wine sections can now
be found everywhere from
convenience stores to shop-
ping clubs. So it makes sense.
that wine would also find its
way into homes ranging
from a simple countertop
rack to full-blown wine cel-
lars whose storage can be
tracked with software specifi-
cally designed to manage a
wine inventory. If you have
even a simple interest in
wine, why not make that
interest a part of your home?
SIt helps to know that wine
is finicky. It doesn't like
light and it likes to be cool.
Even vibrations aren't good
for wine. So, a quiet, dark,
KATHRYN WE .T' r:,
cool location is best. Once
you find the spot that's away
from windows, the stove,
and stereo or televisions, you
have a good start on storing
your wine in the conditions
it likes and responds to best.
You should always store wine
on its side so that the cork
stays moist and maintains it
Use what you have
A love of wine can be
translated into your d6cor
and lifestyle easily. Whether
you have a basement that
can be converted to a cellar,
a spare closet or cabinet, or
just a corner of the dining
room, there are many ways
to work wine into your home
that range in price from ten
dollars to tens of thousands
of dollars. If space is limited,
select a small cabinet area for
a nice wine rack to store your
favorite bottles. If you have
generous pantry space, con-
sider adding wine racks here.
Pantries are usually dark,
cool, and quiet, making them
a good choice for wine stor-
If you have a butler's
pantry and no butler, why
not turn this area into a wine
bar? Remove shelves and a
cabinet door to add a wine i :
cooler. If you can spare the
room, fit another cabinet W
with racks. If you have a
small closet, replace the door "
with a wrought iron gate and4
install racks and you have an
instant cellar. Even an
unused formal dining room
can be converted into a
wine-tasting room with the
right decor elements.
If you're interested in cre-
ating a real wine cellar and L ,
are a serious collector of
wines, it's wise to hire an .3
expert who can build the
storage racks and install the
proper cooling system
required to ensure the-wines
are kept at the optimal tem-
Today there are a number
of companies that will come
to your home and design a
cellar that includes a tasting
bar, barrels, refrigeration -
and almost anything an .,T%'
oenophile heart could desire. ..'
Adding a spot to your
home for the collection and
enjoyment of wine couldn't
be easier with all the acces-
sories and d&cor items avail-
able today. Your next home
improvement might need to
be one that will allow you to
savor life by the glass.

Lampshades actually attract
dust as the air around them is

The fabric softener sheet gets
