move to

May OK

with hotels

by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
Normally this time of year
brings loads of visitors vying for
a front row seat to watch one of
the nation's most popular golf
tournament The Players
Championship in Ponte Vedra
Beach.
And normally those visitors
crowd the local hotels, restau-
rants and businesses, boosting
the local economy.
But this year, those visitors
won't come until May, which
begs the question: What are
businesses doing'to make up for
their absence in March?
"Actually I think they are get-
ting just as much business,"
Glen Hastings, president of the
St. Johns County Tourist
Development Council, said
Monday.
Hastings said the "busy sea-
son" for tourism in St. Johns
County usually runs from about
the middle of February to about
two weeks after Easter.

Information Officer Tom
Bingham Thursday said
Alexander and a passenger were
observed by an officer who saw
a suspicious vehicle illegally
parked with what he thought
were dark tinted windows,.
Bingham said Cpl. Bennek
approached the vehicle and
inquired about the well-being of
the occupants.
The passenger exited the
vehicle and started talking to
officers. A third backup officer
arrived at the scene and began


questioning Alexander.
"He [Alexander] jumped out
of the car with two black han-
dled box cutter knives with the
blades fully extended."
According to Bingham,
Alexander refused repeated
orders to drop the weapons and
continued to hold them at eye
level just above the shoulder.
"He kept saying 'kill me, just
go ahead and kill me',"
Bingham said. "He turned and
lunged at two of the officers."
Bennek fired one round, strik-


ing Alexander in the chest.
Bingham said the suspect "went
down immediately" and officers
were able to recover the knives.
Alexander was airlifted to
Shands Jacksonville where he is
in stable condition. He has
three outstanding warrants out
of North Carolina for trespass-
ing, assault with a deadly
weapon and fleeing police.
The passenger was not
charged. Bennek is on standard
administrative leave pending an
investigation of the shooting.

Movie shoot in JB
features Stone, Fallon

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
"Quiet on the set" The call
boomed from behind the towering
water slides Wednesday at Adventure
Landing in Jacksonville Beach as
Hollywood heavy hitters prepared to
shoot a scene for the new movie


"Rockett."
Produced by
Scott Lumpkin,
the film's origi-
nal working title
was "Eliot
Rockett" but the
name was short-
ened to reflect
the wishes of a
cinematographer
with the same
name.
The film stars
Jimmy Fallon as
the central char-
acter
Christopher
Rockett. Sharon
Stone stars as his
mother, Lucy Liu
appears as
Rocket's girl-
friend, and Tom
Arnold as his car
salesman father.


Casting Call:
An open cast-
ing call will be
held Saturday
from noon to 5
p.m. at the
Jacksonville
Landing tov cast
all background
types and a
stand-in for
Sharon Stone in
the feature film
"Rockett."
Those interest-
ed should bring a
photo or head-
shot with them
and report to
suite 106 (right
beside Nine West
on the main
floor).


Actor Chase Ellison, 13, of San
Diego stars as the young Rockett in
1986. The film is set in present day
but volleys back to the 80's.
Three of the film's scenes were shot
at the family entertainment park,
including a used car commercial
involving a leprechaun and a pea-
green '76 Pacer; a fair scene with a
gray-haired carnival worker in cutoffs

Douglas during a

Landing on --
Wednesday. The
director's chair, right,

the movie, which has
since dropped the first
name.
and a rather large stuffed rab-
bit; and a go-cart scene with Douglas
and Ellison.
"It was supposed to be a rollercoast-
er scene," Lumpkin said. "But when
we came out here and rode the go-
carts we thought this was even better."
The go-cart scene with Elision and
Douglas, both of whom appeared in
Alan Ball's HBO series "Six Feet
Under/" flashes back to the 80's when
a young Rocket goes out for a day of
fun with his father's "friend."
"It's the story of a young guy in his
mid 30's who must come to terms
with his childhood," Lumpkin said.
"Rockett" is the first project for the
Jacksonville-based Ring Productions.
The company will begin shooting
"Glad All Over" starring Robert Duvall


and Ving Rhames in Jacksonville next
month.
"Glad All Over," named for a 60's
song by the Dave Clark 5, is a story
about a former football coach who
pens a self-help book to honor his late
wife. The drama is centered on a group
of people who all have connection to
the book without ever seeing its reclu-
sive author.
Ring Productions plans to film at"
three feature productions per year in
the Jacksonville area and utilize the
local workforce and supporting busi-
nesses.

for a week Affordable housing concerns many here
FROM STAFF


Beginning Monday, work
crews will close the portion of
15th Street South between
Beach Boulevard and Shetter
Avenue in Jacksonville Beach to
install a water main under the
S existing roadway.
The road will remain cosed
through Friday, March 23. Beach
Boulevard will remain open
to traffic.
The closure is needed to
install a water main 14-16 feet
underground, JTA spokesman
Wendy Morrow said,
The road dosing comes at the
same time that Penman Road
South is also closed for a city of
Jacksonville Beach project.
"It's just unfortunately the
way the projects went," Morrow
said, explaining that JTA and
Jacksonville Beach officials meet
every two weeks to coordinate
work on the widening of Beach
Boulevard and the reworking of
the Penman/ Beach interchange.
Because both 15th Street and
South Penman will be closed,
Beach Boulevard motorists trav-
eling to or from 15th Street will
have to access it from Shetter
Avenue, via 12th Street South.

STAFF WRITER
In' the past few years, devel-
opment has boomed at the
Beaches, but it has sometimes
been at the expense of afford-
able housing, which is lacking
here, according to both real
estate professionals and social
service agencies.
The problem of insufficient
affordable housing is not
unique to the Beaches.
Jacksonville's North Florida
Association of Realtors has
identified the problem as a
key concern for the region.
Overdevelopment and eco-
nomic expansion have led to
a lack of affordable housing
on a national level, according
to the Department of Urban
Housing and Development
(HUD).
Housing is considered
affordable "if a low or moder-
ate-income family can afford
to rent or buy a decent quali-
ty dwelling without spending
more than 30 percent of its
income on shelter," according
to HUD.


Part
in a series

Over the past few years, the
Beaches have lost approxi-
mately 800 units of affordable
housing, forcing 2,000 people
to leave the area, according to
Cindy Funkhouser, executive
director of Beaches
Emergency Assistance
Ministry (B.E.A.M.) and chair
of the Beaches Housing
Coalition.
B.E.A.M. has helped many
of the families who have lost
their homes due to property
being sold for development.
"The number one cause of
homelessness is a loss of
affordable housing,"
Funkhouser said, adding that
temporary sheltering is not
the answer.
Service workers can afford
approximately $500 to $600
in rent per month,
Funkhouser said.
The definition of service
workers expands beyond
teachers, firefighters and


police officers, she said. Th
"workforce" primarily encon
passes labor-intensive jot
such as waiters, construction
workers and trash collectors.
These jobs are among th
fastest growing in Duvz
County, according t
Funkhouser.
For example, cafeteria
workers in Duval County
public schools are paid d
the same, whether they
are working at

ban on

rentals

<90 days

On Mon. agenda
FROM STAFF
Short-term rentals of less than
90 days will be prohibited in
Neptune Beach if a proposed
ordinance is approved.
All private dwellings, includ-
ing homes, townhomes, duplex-
es, multi-family and condomini-
um, could not be leased or
advertised for less than 90 days
in any of the city's five residen-
tial zoning districts.
"Short-term rentals shall be
considered to be commercial
uses as are motels..." the ordi-
nance proposes.
Councilor John Weldon is
introducing the ordinance,
which faces initial council
review Monday at a 6 p.m.
council meeting.

Neighbor's light
bothersome?


NB ready to

declare it a

nuisance
FROM STAFF
If your neighbor's porch
light shines too brightly onto
your home in Neptune Beach
you may soon be able to do
more than just complain.
The City Council will discuss
amending its nuisance ordi-
nance to regulate outside light-
ing that disturbs a neighbor.
The proposed amendment,
proposed by Councilor John
Weldon, would require the city
to investigate and enforce
lighting disturbances if an:
"aggrieved party submits a
sworn written complaint.
"Any outside lighting such as
lamps, bulbs, lights and all
other devices for producing
artificial light which shine or
reflect light onto or into a
neighboring residence as to
annoy or disturb the persons
inhabiting such neighboring
residence," would constitute a
nuisance, according to the pro-
posed amendment.
The amendment will be con-
sidered at a council meeting
Monday at City Hall, 116 First
Street, at 6 p.m.

AROUND THE BEACHES


Unexpected savings
lead to more sidewalks
The Atlantic Beach City
Commission approved a
change in a contract that will
allow two extra sidewalk proj-
ects to be added to this year's
construction plans.
Because bids for the side-
walk construction planned on
West 10th Street and West 6th
Street, which also included a
bike path from Seminole Road
to Selva Marina Drive, came in
under budget, the city can
also add two minor sidewalk
projects to this year's construc-
tion plan, according to Public
Works Director Rick Carper.
A sidewalk on Palm Avenue
and an extension on West
11th Street, which are high
sidewalk priorities can be
added for approximately
$12,000, according to Carper.

Free counseling offered
to families
The Beaches Resource
Center is offering free counsel-
ing to Beaches residents, pro-
vided they meet certain guide-
lines. Michelle Thomas of
Family Foundations is a BRC
staff member and is offering

individuals, families and cou-
ples.
Thomas is working on a

Correction:
Due to an error in a press release, the collection source
for The Highwaymen exhibition now on display at The
Beaches Museum & History Center in Jacksonville Beach
was incorrect in a Feb 23 story. The exhibit, which contin-

the original highwaymen artists, is on loan to the museum
from the Orange County Regional History Center in
Orlando and the collection of Geoff Cook.

More than 70 area industry

Locations manager Mitch
Harbeson of Atlantic Beach
said "Rockett" showcases the
versatility of the film's
ensemble cast.
"Jimmy [Fallon] wants to
be a more complex actor but
he is usually cast in more
humorous roles," he said.
"This film allows him to dig
deeper into that complexity
but with humorous under-
tones. [This film] is all about
the fear of becoming our par-
ents."
Harbeson said Fallon is able
to flex his funny muscle in
several memorable scenes
including one in which he is
tackled on an airplane and a
subsequent jail scene.

FROM STAFF
Golf balls launched form the
driving range at the
Jacksonville Beach golf course
are causing serious problems at
one of the city's electric substa-
tions.
The City Council will consid-
er accepting a bid to install pro-
tective netting around the $4
million substation which lines
up directly with the driving
range at Penman Road South.
Action Sports Netting, Inc.
submitted the lowest bid for
$238,674 to install painted,
galvanized steel poles with pro-
tective netting to keep the golf
balls from damaging the equip-
ment or hammering personnel
working in the area;

"Fever Pitch" with Drew
Barrymore and in "Taxi" with
Queen Latifah.
Ellison, he said, is a
"charming kid" with strong
acting chops and a penchant
for video games. Lee Hovis,
general manager of
Adventure Landing, gave him
tokens to play video games in
between takes.
In addition to his appear-
ance on "Six Feet Under,"
Ellison also had a semi-recur-
ring role as Noah Newman of
"The Young and the
Restless."
After wrapping at the
beach, the shoot moved to a
private home and will con-
tinue shooting throughout
the city until mid-April.
Harbeson said the local
crew members are grateful to
be welcomed by their home-
town.
"The Beach has just taken
us in. It helps validate what
we do," he said. "It is so hard
turning down work you can
do at home."

With the weather warming
up in March, local hotels such
as, the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club
and the Sawgrass Marriott fill
up with corporate meetings,
conventions and golf outings,
Hastings said.
"March is normally the time
of year when our season begins
to pick up anyway," said Fred
Cosby, director of lodging at
the Inn & Club.
Cosby said many of their
corporate visitors return every
year to enjoy the spring weath-
er, making March and April
"peak months" for the resort.
Plus, the resort sees many
families on vacation around
this time, Cosby said.
Because northerners had a
mild winter until recent weeks,
Hastings said northerners are
just now beginning to take
their vacations.
Cosby said the Inn & Club is
not embarking on any special
marketing campaigns to attract
more business in March other
than the usual spring market-
ing that takes place every year.:
The Sawgrass Marriott is

Housing:


offering a "Play Before The
Players Play" package from
February to April 15, in which
guests can stay for a night and
play one round of golf on the
Stadium Course.
The package also includes
the use of an experienced TPC
Sawgrass caddie and a two-
hour PGA Tour Academy expe-
rience, where professionals will
analyze a golfer's swing.
Chris Bracken, director of
marketing for the Marriott,
said Monday that the offer was
aimed at golfers who would
normally attend the tourna-
ment in March.
"We definitely had a strategy
to go after that segment [of
golfers] to get them here before
the tournament," Bracken said.
But the Marriott is still doing
well with convention and
group business alone, he said.
Ruth's Chris, a fine dining
restaurant that usually gets
slammed with customers from
the tournament every March,
has experienced a bit of a slow-
down, according to Assistant
General Manager William
Battah.

the Beaches or in another area, where housing
costs are lower.
As a result, school officials are sometimes hard
pressed to fill lunchroom vacancies at the
Beaches, according to John Radcliffe with Duval
County's facilities department.
In Duval County, the median income is approx-
imately $60,000. People who are in need of
affordable housing make less than $30,000 annu-
ally, Funkhouser said.
However, part of the problem, is that people are
gearing workforce housing toward people making
between $30,000 to $70,000 per year, Funkhouser
said. That provides housing for teachers and fire-
fighters, but neglects other workers who don't
earn $30,000.
"We're advocating for people who can't afford
apartments," she said.
The dynamic of the Beaches began to shift
about four to five years ago when many develop-
ers began Buying apartment complexes and con-
verting them into condos, according to Jeanell
Wilson, owner of All South Realty.
In addition, property taxes have quadrupled in
the last four years for some, she said, as property
values have risen.
The combination has caused many people to
leave the Beaches or become homeless.
Many families were given 30 days or less notice
that they needed to move. out of their home in
several apartment complexes, which have since


But with the construction of
a large parking garage next
door and the remodeling of the
inside of the restaurant, Battah
said, it's hard to tell just what is
causing the slowdown.
Because of healthy business
from locals, Battah said he
doesn't think the absence of
the tournament has had a
"substantial" effect.
What is substantial is the
expectation for business in
May.
Bracken said all the rooms in
the Marriott have already sold
out from May 10 to 13 the
days of The Players along
with some days before and
after the tournament.
"In general I think there's
going to be more people [than
in March]," Bracken said.
Battah also said Ruth's Chris
is expecting more tournament
business this year.
With businesses doing fairly
well in March, Hastings said he
thinks the tournament will
only extend the busy tourist
season into May.


been converted to condos, according to
Funkhouser.
"We were being, inundated with people who
were just panic-stricken," Funkhouser said of the
many families that went to B.E.A.M. seeking assis-
tance. "We had people stacked up in the waiting
room."
As a result, families are finding alternative living
solutions.
"A lot of people opt to go to the west side of the
Intracoastal. They get more for their money," said
Realtor Susan Connolly of Lifestyles Realty.
But, a new problem has arisen with many serv-
ice workers leaving the Beaches and businesses
are starting to see the effects, according to Ponte
Vedra Chamber of Commerce president Jeffrey
Oliasami.
He said many businesses in the chamber's dis-
trict are approximately 20 percent short of staff on
any given day.
"Everyone is lacking employees," he said,
adding that most of the employees they do have
are coming from the westside of the Intracoastal.
Business involvement is a key factor in solving
the affordable housing problem at the Beaches,
according to Funkhouser. She said that the busi-
ness community needs to step forward in order to
begin working toward a solution.
The lack of affordable housing is concentrated
at the Beach and the problem is only increasing.
"We can't just keep ignoring it," Funkhouser
said.

The Leader's Opinion



Public safety key to


enjoying holiday, fest


Festival season at the Beaches kicks off this weekend
with the Great Atlantic Music & Seafood Festival in
Jacksonville Beach at the SeaWalk pavilion.
The Saturday festival happens to fall on St. Patrick's
Day, which itself is always a day for celebrating -
especially when it falls on a weekend.
Jacksonville Beach police have promised a stepped
up presence in the downtown area, noting that some
of the Spring Break crowd also seems to have chosen
to spend some time here this week.
The police presence should guarantee a safe, fun day
of activities and is to be encouraged.
The police are also encouraging anyone planning on
celebrating to do so wisely.
The combination of alcohol and heat, along with
large crowds, can create some unpredictable situations
so party safely.

"You seem intelligent, capable, level-headed and mature.
That's a shame because I was really hoping you'd fit in here."



Needed this St. Patrick's Day -

Ronald Reagan and his charms


t was on St. Patrick's Day
1988 when an unexpected
visitor arrived at Pat Troy's
Irish pub in Alexandria, Va --
President Ronald Reagan.
For 27 years, it's been a
favorite watering hole for
Washington insiders. Some of
Reagan's advance men had
been regulars. They secretly
arranged the president's visit.
Just before noon, the pub
was half-packed when Reagan
and his entourage arrived. As
news got around, the pub
quickly filled to capacity.
While Reagan enjoyed a pint
of Harp and some corned
beef and cabbage, Troy was so
busy tending to patrons, he
didn't have time to react to
his famous patron.
"He had an energy about
him that put you instantly at
ease," Troy told me. "He made
it easy to carry oh as though
he was just another patron,
so that is what I did."
Troy took the stage and led
ithe audience in "The Wild
Rover." He directed sections
of the audience to compete
with each other to see which
could sing and clap the loud-
est.
"You have to clap louder,
Mr. President," he said to
Reagan, prompting the presi-
dent, not used to being given
orders, to laugh.
Troy next led the audience
in "The Unicorn Song." While
Troy sang the words, the
audience mimicked the ani-
mals referenced in the song:
. "There were green alligators
and long-necked geese, some
humpty backed camels and
some chimpanzees. Some cats
and rats and elephants, but
sure as you're born, the
loveliest of all was the uni-
corn."
Reagan turned to watch a

COLUMNIST

group of young women act
out the song. His face showed
curiosity and delight he'd
never seen this song per-
formed before.
But that was how he was:
At the same time he was the
world's most powerful man,
the man who felled commu-
nism and restored American ,,
optimism, he w'.as a man of
youthful innocence who
found immense pleasure in
the simplest things.
When Troy finished, he
handed the president the
microphone. The normally
raucous crowd became
extraordinarily quiet.
Reagan spoke off the top of
his head. He graciously
thanked Troy for having him
for lunch. He said it was a
great surprise. He talked
about his father, an Irishman.
"When I was a little boy,
my father proudly told me
that the Irish built the jails in
this country," he said, paus-
ing expertly. "Then they pro-
ceeded to fill them."
The crowd laughed heartily.
"You have to understand
that for a man in my posi-


tion, I'm a little leery about
ethnic jokes," he said. The
crowd roared. "The only ones
I can tell are Irish."
He talked about a recent
trip to Ireland. He visited
Castle Rock, the place where
St. Patrick erected the first'
cross in Ireland.
"A young Irish guide took
me to the cemetery and
showed me an ancient tomb-
stone there," he said. "The
inscription read: 'Remember
me as you pass by, for as are
you so once was I, and as I
am you too will be, so be
content to follow me."
As Reagan paused, the
crowd eagerly awaited his fol-
low up.
"Then I looked below the
inscription, where someone
scratched in these words: 'To
follow you I am content, I
wish I knew which way you
went.'"
The crowd roared loud and
long, causing the president to
deadpprl to his .a"ce men:
"',Why didn't Ifind t is place .
seven years ago?"
The pub visit was video-
taped by Reagan staffers and
released to Troy 10 years after
Reagan left office. I watched
that video and got to see a
snapshot of pure, unscripted
Ronald Reagan.
It shows how powerfully
and eloquently the man was
able to engage any audience,
large or small, just by being
his genuine self. As we begin
the process of selecting our
next president, we sure could
use another fellow like him.
I'll be sure to offer up a
toast to the Great
Communicator as I celebrate
St. Patrick's Day this year:
"To follow you we were
content, and grateful for the
way we went."


Bathing suit season tricks to try


fIhe exercise equipment .in
this house is wondering
what hit it. Stationary
bikes, treadmills, and leg
weights are seeing more RPMs
than the last 5 months com-
bined. The dog has been
walked until her pads are bare,
and I've contemplated swim-
;ming laps in 60 degree water. I
even ice skated with my
daughter at a birthday party,
figuring it was more, athletic
than standing there watching.
Let me tell you, there were
no ice.skating rinks in
Spartanburg, S.C. in the '70s to
provide me with any previous
finesse, so I burned a few calo-
ries scraping my daughter and
me off the ice a few times as
well.
I have dieted a little South
Beach, a little Atkins, and a
smidge of starvation. I've
replaced every bright white
light bulb in my home with
soft dim ones. You can set your
calendar to this kind of activity
in the homes of forty some-
thing women: it's bathing suit
season.
It just drives me crazy. I
exercise much more now than
as a young adult. I have the
upper body strength of Goliath
and can heave hundreds of
pounds of groceries up a flight
of steps without breathing
hard. I can grab a 120-pound
child by the belt loop and
effortlessly haul him out of
danger, and hoist and carry a
90-pound Labrador retriever
upstairs and out of my room at
10 o'clock at night without
missing a step. Sixty-pound
book bags are no problem to

sling over my shoulder and
schlep into the house if the
bookbagee needs his limbs to
carry sports equipment.
There is no end to it, but tell
that to the mirror in the
bathing suit department. You
know, the dressing room mir-
rors with harsh white lights
that shows blemishes in high
definition plasma screen style.
Suddenly the fat pads over my
knees look like grapefruits, and.
the cellulite that I have worked
so hard to abolish looks like
the craters of the rioon in skin
tone.
The inventiveness in me just
screams in times like these.
Maybe we can come up with a
spray like the stuff they seal
pipe conduits into houses.
You know, it comes out soft
and gooey and fills in pits and
cracks to close off the opening
as it becomes solid and firm.
We can call it leg gloss and one
quick spray will change the
orange rind section of any
thigh to a smooth flat piece of


flesh.
I've learned a few tricks of
the trade that help deflect a lit-
tle of the mental anguish asso-
ciated with shopping alongside
chicks who have bathing suit
drawers in their dressers the
size of my flannel pajamas
drawer.
#1. Never shop for bathing
suits on a weekend. That's
when all the model size skin-
nies are shopping and for some
reason have brought their
boyfriend along to give
approval. You can identify
these cuties by the loud
requests for a smaller size suit
because the size 2 is just hang-
ing on them.
#2. If at all possible, shop
during school hours. This cuts
down on little teenies that
wear size "little teeny" and look
at you as if to say "I will never
be as old as you". I know this
because I used to do it when I
was young and stupid.
#3. Quit being friends with
anyone thinner and more fit
than you. If you're me, then
this will leave you with zero
friends, and only half a hus-
band, so I actually don't rec-
ommend carrying through
with this rule unless you have
personality issues/disorders.
#4. Immediately cut all size
tags out of suits upon arriving
home and say you bought at
discount warehouses where
the tags were already gone.
#5. For the ultimate self
esteem lift, when someone asks
you where you got your swim-
suit, just say, "Oh I don't know,
my 18-year-old daughter and I
share clothes".

Springing


Forward

weather wit has said
that spring is God's
way of saying, "One
more time!" For us here in
the best part of Florida, it's
time to start tidying up our
yards. It's also a good point
at which to plant new plastic
flowers in our gardens.
The arrival of the season
evokes my younger days up
in New Jersey. One of the
annual rituals pursued by
male students at my high
school around the vernal
(springtime) equinox was
"jumping the brook." This
was done fully clothed at a
fairly wide section of a small
stream that ran through an
undeveloped part of town.
For those who endeavored to
"spring forward" but didn't
make it across, the shock of
the cold water was nothing
compared to the razzing
from the successful jumpers,
Our generally milder
weather here permits an ear-
lier switch to warm weather
pursuits. Even so, we can
have some teeth chattering
moments. It's a less-extreme
picture than the one painted
by American poet Robert
Frost when he wrote frostily
about spring in New
England---
The sun was warm but
the wind was chill.
You know how it is with
an April day:: ,.. ,
171cn the sun is out and
the wind is stilt,'
You're one month on in
the middle of May.
. But if you so much as dare
to speak,
A cloud comes over the
sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen
peak,
And you're two months
back in the middle
of March.
One musical announce-
ment of spring hereabouts is
the return of our fine feath-
ered friends. Up in the
Garden State, some of us
called them "boids." The,
other day, I believe I heard
the first mockingbird of the
season. I don't know who he
was mocking, since he didn't
speak very good English.
Seriously, though, it was
good to get an earful of that
avian vocalizing. Truth is,
they reportedly can mimic
other bird species' songs and
calls, along with squeaky
gates, pianos, sirens, barking
dogs, and more.
We need to treasure the
mocker, not only since it's
our state bird but also
because it's so talented and
can imitate things people do.

out that I, in turn, can imi-
tate what birds do. For
instance--- jailbird: "I didn't

I hope everyone has a

Exploring the skies


Former Fletcher teachers' son has

lead article in Scientific American


His career

sparked by

Cub Scout

field trip

by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
At the age of 10 many little boys want
a telescope for Christmas. Dr. Chris
Conselice got one and now at the age of
32 he is an astronomer who specializes in
studying the formation of galaxies.
His article, "The Universe's Invisible
Hand: The Cosmic Grip of Dark Energy,"
is the cover story in the February issue of
Scientific American.
"He used to say he wanted to do all
these things when he was young but we
didn't think he would actually do it,"
said his mom, Jane Conselice, who
retired from teaching chemistry and AP
biology from Fletcher Highin 1991.
"He doesn't like to tell us too much
about what he's doing because he thinks
we don't understand and he's right."
Dr. Conselice is an astronomer and lec-
turer at the University of Nottingham in
England. He went to Fletcher High until
sophomore year and then transferred to
Stanton where he graduated in 1992. He
earned a B.A. in physics at the University
of Chicago in 1996 and enrolled in the
astronomy Ph.D. program at the
University of Wisconsin. He held a NASA
graduate student research fellowship at
the Space Telescope Science Institute
where he worked on NASA's Hubble
Space Telescope. In 2001 he earned his
Ph.D. with a thesis on the evolution of
low-mass galaxies in clusters. He then
joined the astronomy department at
California Institute of Technology
[Caltech] as a postdoctoral scholar and
has worked on telescopes all over the
world.
But Conselice first became interested in
astronomy on a Cub Scout field trip to
the former observatory at Beaches
Chapel in Neptune Beac'h.: :'' :
"'Toond it fbacinatin g,'ile another"'"
world the entire experience," writes Dr.
Conselice, via e-mail from Nottingham,
where he has worked for the past year.
Conselice grew up in The Woods com-
munity off Atlantic Boulevard in Jackson-
ville. His dad, Joe Conselice, was a spe-
cial education teacher at Fletcher before
starting his own business, American Well
and Irrigation in Atlantic Beach.
Conselice's sister, Michelle, is the office
manager of Joe's business.
"We always did things with our kids


when they were little, like take them to
museums and plays and then when Chris
became interested, the planetarium
downtown, so they could get a taste of
everything in life and then take whichev-
er direction they want to go," said Joe
Conselice.
The Conselices didn't realize Chris had
a gift for science and math until his
freshman year of high school when he
started taking advanced courses in math-
ematics.
"I remember in high school he'd have
these math problems and he'd be writing
all over the place and we didn't know
what he was doing but the paper wasn't
enough so we went out and got him a
giant chalkboard,"
Joe Conselice recalls. "It was just like
-',hedh you .' tl't .h',i",'m ath,:imati,:ian-, in '
"t'li: hitie "'\ c s: it At up in the g.aage so
he'd be able to do all his formulas for
whatever he was working on."
So how do parents raise a child to be
one of the leading astronomers in the
world?
"I would say the best advice for parents
is if your child is interested in something
encourage them to go places with it,"
Jane Conselice said. "All of his accom-
plishments amaze me. We're very proud."
Conselice's article is available on the
web at www.scientificamerican.com


Chris Conselice has studied
the skies since he discovered
his fascination with astronomy
while he was a Cub Scout,
above. He had his own tele-
scope at a young age, left,
and, top, he accepts a degree.


I would say


the


best advice for par-
ents is if your child
is interested in
something, encour-


age them to

Questions and answers with
Dr. Christopher Conselice:

*What is the biggest misconception people
have about astronomers?
.The biggest misconception is that astronomers
look through telescopes by eye, or that we
observe every night. Most professional
astronomers today.use a telescope perhaps for
a week or two a year and spend the rest of the
time analyzing that data. These telescopes are
in remote places, where the sky is dark, such
as northern Chile and Hawaii. We do not use
telescopes located in cities. The data we obtain
is also measured by sensitive light collecting
instruments.

*What are your future goals?
To continue research on galaxies and dark
matter to understand how galaxies are formed
and what role dark matter had in this.

*If you weren't an astronomer what other
career would
you be doing?
Probably another science, like physics or
chemistry, maybe biology.

*And just for fun what's your sign and
take on astrology?
I'm a Leo, although astrology has no scientific
basis whatsoever. I don't object to it too much
as long as people realize it is for fun, and do
not take it seriously.

Aqua East seeks variances to expand


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
SrifWRITER
Aqua East Surf Shop's owners are
requesting several variances to permit
an addition to the Neptune Beach
store.
The applicant is proposing a one-
story, 10,730 square-foot addition on
the eastern side of the property at 696
Atlantic Blvd., according to
Comnmlnit\ Development Director
Amanda Askew.


In order to do this, the applicant is
requesting permission to exceed the
maximum lot coverage from 75 percent
to 90 percent.
According to city staff, that variance
would create an "extreme" impervious
surface area. In addition, that coverage
would also require approval from the
water management district, which. has
oversight of drainage.
Without that approval, the owners
may have to redesign the plans and
consider a two-story addition to take


up less surface or explore alternative
parking surfaces, Askew said.
Owners also want to reduce the
required setback along the east side of
the property from 25 feet to 10.66 feet;
west side setback from 20 feet to 5.3
feet; and rear yard setback from 20 feet
to 3.6 feet.
In addition, city staff has reported
that the owners will require a parking
variance, though none has been
requested.
According to Askew, the new addi-


tion means the store will need 98 total
spaces. Currently the store has 69
spaces now and does not currently
meet code for handicapped spaces.
The variances will be considered at
Monday's city council meeting.
The addition was first proposed in
2001. Variances obtained in 2005
expired and upon reapplication in the
summer of 2006, the planning develop-
ment board recommended approval of
the setback and lot coverage changes,
but there have been several deferrals.

Plat 'mess' has AB commission perplexed


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Some lot plats are a mess in
Atlantic Beach and need to be
cleaned up, city commissioners
said this week, but exactly
what should be done is
unclear.
Wary of setting any prece-
dents and concerned about
opening the doors for a deluge
of replat requests, a split com-
mission opted to reject a resi-
dent's request that engendered
a lengthy debate at Monday's
meeting.
At the same time, they left
the door open for the owner to
reapply, agreeing to waive re-
application fees.
A waiver has been requested
to create two lots out of prop-
erty on Second Street. The
owner has a 50-foot wide by
140-foot deep lot as well as half
of each of the two adjacent 50-
foot wide lots.


Carol-Anne Hallam, the
applicant's daughter, told the
commission that her mother
can no longer maintain the
single-story duplex on the lot
and is seeking the waiver so
that the property will be easier
to sell.
"Ideally, yes, we
would like to find someone
who wants the house just as it
is. In reality, it's not going to
happen," said Hallam regard-
ing the current house on the
property which .was built in
the 1950s and is a "concrete
box." Hallam also pointed out
that the current duplex does
not meet certain building code
standards.
However, commis-
sioners had difficulty in mak-
ing a decision.
Commissioner Mike Borno
was absent and the remaining
four officials were split in their
votes.


Commissioners debated
whether granting the waiver
would set a precedent for other
applicants seeking similar
requests.
Community Development
Director Sonya Doerr told the
commission that the request is
similar to others from the past,
which were denied.
"This is one of the most fre-
quent issues that comes to me
in the form of questions,"
Doerr told the commission.
Commissioner Jamie
Fletcher said that while these
decisions are difficult to make,
"we've got to start cleaning up
these lot plat messes at some
point."
Because commission-
ers could not come to a major-
ity decision, City Attorney
Alan Jenson advised the com-
mission to defer the item to
the next meeting when there
would be a full commission.


That suggestion also pro-
voked more debate because
Commissioners Sylvia
Simmons and Fletcher were
concerned that more appli-
cants would apply for similar
requests in the meantime.
Doerr told the commission
that there were several cases
which were similar and she felt
that more people may submit
waiver requests.
"It's going to open a can of
worms," said Fletcher.
"We are in a quandary,"
added Mayor Don Wolfson.
After several motions, the
commission finally voted to
deny the waiver, but the appli-
cant can still reapply which
she was advised to do when
there is a full commission.
The commission also direct-
ed staff to do some research
and report back.

Helping Hands holding bazaar


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
A St. Patrick's Day Bazaar will
be held on Saturday to raise
funds for transitional housing
for homeless families with chil-
dren.
Members of the Helping
Hands Village Project Team are
organizing the bazaar. It will be
held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the
Jacksonville Beach Women's
Club at 1315 N. 2nd Ave. in
Jacksonville Beach.
Since 2002, Helping Hands
Ministries through Helping
Hands Village has provided
temporary housing to families
with children, said Deacon
James Stackhouse in a telephone
interview.
Stackhouse and his wife Betty
are Program Directors of
Helping Hands Ministries.
"Children are the key," he
said.
They are the reason for the
transitional housing. Families
that were coming here for serv-
ices were living in cars, said
Stackhouse.
"A single person with deter-
mination does not have to be
homeless for very long. It's a lit-
tle harder for families with chil-
dren, especially more than one
child."
Helping Hands Village cur-
rently has three houses for
transitional housing.
Renovations are being done on
a fourth house.
"Hopefully, this will be com-
pleted by mid-summer," said
Stackhouse.
Families can stay in transi-
tional housing for four months.
After that time they can request
a re-evaluation for a longer stay
if needed.
Twelve families have lived in

headlines

So now Peter Rose has
admitted to betting on
the Cincinnati Reds every
day when he was manager
from 1984 until 1989. This, of
course, is yet another attempt
by baseball's Hit King to make
his case for Hall of Fame eligi-
bility. But like many degener-
ate gamblers, Rose isn't even
on speaking terms with the
truth. Each year seems to
bring a new revelation, a new
confession aimed at finally
"coming clean" and being re-
instated by MLB. It's not
going to happen, and Pete
simply looks more and more
pathetic with each Quixotic .
attempt.

But say this for Rose, his
quest for entry into the Hall
of Fame is exceeded only by
his desire to do anything for
a buck. It's right there on his
official Web site: For $350
you can get a personally
signed ball reading, "I'm
sorry I bet on baseball." T-
shirts emblazoned with "I'm
sorry I bet on baseball -
Peter Rose" are selling for
$19.95 and $170 gets you an
afloaphei edcopvyof the
Sports illustrated issue
detailing Rose's suspension
and lifetime ban from the
sport.

Gary Matthews Jr.'s denial
that he has ever taken human
growth hormone is strange
and suspicious. The Angels
outfielder waited 16 days after
his name was linked to an
Internet steroid scandal before
issuing his statement. Why
the delay? Matthews says he
had to make sure he wasn't
being accused of anything "by
anyone in authority."
Translation: Matthews asked
Major League Baseball if they
had a positive drug test on
him. When the answer appar-
ently was "no," the player felt
free to deny he'd ever taken
the substances allegedly pur-
chased from the on-line phar-
macy.

And speaking of drug test-
ing, no need to worry that
the peanut vendor at
Tropicana Field will drill a
bag through your chest dur-
ing a Devil Rays game.
Baseball has announced ran-
dom steroid testing for off-
field employees. Can't catch
Barry Bonds but juiced-up
receptionists are in the cross-
hairs.

While March Madness may
be upon us, it was the NBA
that gave fans a classic
Western shootout Wednesday
night. The Suns and
Mavericks went to double
overtime before Phoenix
grabbed a 129-127 victory.
With 10 points in the final
rhinute of regulation to force
OT, Suns guard Steve Nash
added more evidence to the
case that he should win a
third MVP award.

:Boxing shorts: Evander
Bolyfield, whose name
furned up in the Internet
steroid probe, says he
ordered a drug to treat a
'Ehormonal condition" but.
ised it only once. Former
five-time world champ
Johnny Tapia has been
upgraded to fair condition
following a cocaine over-
dose. Former champ Dave
Itilton Jr., released from
Prison for sexually assault-
ing minors, wants to fight
Again at the age of 43.

: Best bet for the weekend:
. The Bob Hayes Invitational at
lines High on Saturday.

FROM STAFF
Softball victories are rarely
as dramatic as Fletcher's 7-6
win Tuesday night over long-
time rival Sandalwood.
The Senators held a precari-
ous 4-2 lead entering the top
of the seventh inning, but
through a combination of
timely hits and a seeing-eye fly
ball that barely eluded the
glove of Fletcher right fielder
Bekki Frank and brought two
home, the Saints rallied for
four runs to take a 6-4 lead
into the bottom of the sev-
enth.
Brooke Peaver started the
Senators comeback with a
leadoff base hit. Samantha
Meenaghan then walked on
four pitches to put runners on
first and second with none
out.
Katie Satterfield followed
with a routine grounder to
second but the ball was jarred
loose when Sandalwood sec-
ond baseman Heather Smith
tried to tag Meenaghan.
That left the bases loaded
for Cece Strobridge, who, after
two quick strikes, worked the
count to 3-2 before, taking ball
four to make it a 6-5 ballgame.
With the bases still loaded
and nobody out, freshman
Amy Harber lashed a single
plating Meenaghan from third
to tie the game. On the play,
pinch runner Amanda Luke
tried to score from second but
was thrown out at the plate.
As Harber hustled to second,
the Sandalwood catcher threw
wildly into center field allow-
ing Strobridge to trot home
with the winning run.
Fletcher pitcher Jenni
Griswold, who relieved
Satterfield Ri..t _^e- ..f1 i ..-
earned ihe victory as the
Senators improved to 7-5 on
the season.
Fletcher was slated to take
the field again Thursday as it
hosted Englewood.

BASEBALL
Orange Park 5, Fletcher 3
In a district 1-6A matchup
Wednesday, the host Raiders
topped the Senators.
Fletcher built a three run
lead with one in the first and
two more in the top of the
fifth while holding Orange
Park scoreless through four
innings before the Raiders
exploded for five runs in the
bottom of the fifth.
Scott Sitz (0-2) took the loss
for the Senators, who dropped
to 7-4 (1-4) on the season.
The Raiders scored five runs
on seven hits and capitalized
on three Fletcher errors in the
ballgame.
The Senators had five hits
including a double by Kevin
Lehane.
Fletcher will be in action
again tonight
when it takes
on Mandarin
at the Baseball
Grounds in
Jacksonville

pitch sched-
uled for 7 p.m.

My 15 minutes of fame reduced to 90 seconds


Well, that's it; another
Gate River Run over
and done, now just
another page in the race's histo-
ry book. What a turnout: More
than 11,000 finishers, a new
record. And for the first time a
woman was first to the finish
line.
Along with the other elite
female runners, Deena Kastor
was given a five-minute head
start over the men. Her time of
47 minutes and 20 seconds
"beat" Meb Keflezighi's time of
43:39. It was Kastor's fifth Gate
victory and Meb's sixth.
By staying ahead of the men
Kastor won the $5,000 "equaliz-
er bonus," in addition to the
$12,000 first-place prize money.
Meb also won $12,000. A
total of $65,000 was up for
grabs but some of that had to
do with running a world,
national or course record. We
didn't see any records on
Saturday but the equalizer
bonus helped to insure a quick
race, which is exactly what it is
intended to do.
You probably didn't catch it
(how could you it was over so
soon) but I was on TV Saturday
morning. I was expecting my
15 minutes of fame but instead
got a minute and a half.
As a "Streaker" (one of the
exalted 48 who have run all 29
River Runs) I was selected to
answer the compelling question
- live and on the air "What

RUNNING/FITNESS

differences are there between
this year's race and the inaugu-
ral River Run of 1978?"
I took my assignment serious-
ly and did plenty of homework
the night before (unlike when I
was a student), jotting down
bits of highly interesting facts
that I was sure would wow the
WJXT staff as well as the
enthralled public. I kept my
index card "cheat sheets" in my
hand, but out of Camera range,
just to be sure that I left noth-
ing out. Didn't want to short-
change my audience, you know.
I began with the obvious:
There are a lot more partici-
pants, over 13,000 compared to
2,400. The people are different
now, less competitive, slower,

but more into the social side of
things.
In 1978 only about 10 per-
cent of the field was women,
today it is closer to 50 percent.
These days more women than
men are entering the sport. And
everybody dresses a lot better.
Boring, sure, but I had to say
it. Then I would remind them
that in 1978 most people hard-
ly even knew what a computer
was but today all the timing is
done with computers. Results
are instantaneous. Crossing the
finish line is more like checking
out at the grocery store than
having your time yelled at you
by some guy holding a stop-
watch. That would have
brought a big laugh from the
young babes hanging out by
the news desk.
Then I would mention prize
money. Inr 1978 there was no
talk of money, at least not in
public. Athletes had to protect
their "amateur status" so that
they would remain eligible for
the holy grail, the Olympics.
What a joke.
That reminds me: Bill
Rodgers, the first River Run win-
ner and four-time Boston and
New York Marathon champion,
was in town for the 30th year
celebrations.
Wonder how much money
he lost due to the situation at
that time and protecting his
amateur status? If it was 2007
he could have retired a million-
aire but he played by the rules


and was denied, thanks to poli-
tics, the pinnacle of his career
- remember the Moscow
Olympic boycott of 1980?
I was also going to tell view-
ers that in 1978 you could enter
the race for three dollars. This
year, if you waited until the
expo to sign up it would cost
you $35.
Of course, other than the race
itself, you didn't get much for
your three bucks. Moreover,
that three dollars was worth a
lot more than it is today. Today
it's worth, well, let's see -
about, hmm ... maybe four
bucks.
Oh, and the expo. There was
no expo in 1978; in 2007 it is a
big part of the total race experi-
ence. That's the kind of factoid
that would slay my TV viewers.
Furthermore, in 1978 there
was only one race, the River
Run 15,000. Today we have that
plus the Times Union Run/Walk
5K for Charity, the Adidas
Junior River Run and the
Jacksonville Track Club Diaper
Dash.
And how many viewers know
that the race's course was differ-
ent? Originally you had one
mile to go once you crossed the
Hart Bridge; today, bridge at
your back, you are virtually
home with just three-tenths of
a mile left.
I could have gone on and on
with all my fascinating info but
the truth is they cut me off
right after my first bullet-point,

FROM STAFF
The 2007 Great Atlantic
Music and Seafood Festival
gets under way Saturday at
the SeaWalk Pavilion in
Jacksonville Beach.
The free music and
seafood banquet, which runs
from noon to 10 p.m., fea-
tures headliner Tinsley Ellis,
a hard-rocking, high-voltage
blues guitarist most often
compared to Stevie Ray
Vaughan.
Schooled in a variety of
southern musical styles, Ellis
draws not only from fiery


Vaughan-style blues-rock,
but also Texas bluesmen like
Freddie King and Clarence
"Gatemouth" Brown, the
soulful blues of B.B. King,
the funky grit of Memphis
soul, and numerous other
electric bluesmen.
Also featured will be
Tishamingo, the Athens,
Ga.-based band that has
played the Bonnaroo festi-
val, toured Europe, and
joined Lynryd Skynryd's
"Gimmie Three Days" cruise
in January.
The festival stage will be a


musical feast and whet the
appetite for a festival menu
that includes everything
from lobster, crawfish, mahi,
shrimp, and clams, to crab-
cake and alligator.
The cooking starts at 11
a.m. and the music starts at
noon. In honor of St.
Patrick's Day the traditional
"green beer" will be served.
This year's festival will
also feature the popular
"quad jump" and climbing
wall for little and big kids
and an inflatable challenge
course.


Rock's directorial debut a bust


by STEVEN BAILEY
REVIEWER
Don't let the R rating
fool you. The title of
Chris Rock's latest
movie, "I Think I Love My
Wife," reflects the timidity
of its subject matter and of
Rock's movie persona -
which, strangely, is at direct
odds with his funny, smart,
and incisive stand-up act.
Rock's minimal impact
might be somewhat excusa-
ble if he was just passing
through the movie, but
since he also co-wrote and


directed it, he shoulders
much of the blame for this
non-comedy.
Rock plays Richard
Cooper, a high-rolling exec-
utive who's too dumb to
realize he's having a mid-
life crisis. Richard has a
seemingly happy family life,
but every time a curvy
woman passes by, his eyes
get roving and his marriage
gets itchier.
Kerry Washington plays
Nikki Tru, a character whose
problems start with that
porn-star name. And unfor-
tunately for Washington -


whose talent has shone
brightly in films such as
"Save the Last Dance" -
writer Rock has done little
to raise her character above
that level.
Nikki, an old friend of
Richard's, is what kinder
people would call "on the
prowl" and cattier people
would dub "a player."
The first time Nikki shows
up unannounced at
Richard's office, wearing a
barely-there red skirt, the

Now is time to fertilize the lawn


r ihis past week I have
been living my role as a
SMaster Gardener to the
fullest, and now, nearly 22
years into it, I'm finding my
body is not quite as willing
to cooperate with the
amount of hard labor I am
expecting of it. It's different
from the days I could work
outdoors from sunup to sun-
down and get a lot accom-
plished.
I am working hard now
because I know it soon will
turn too warm for me to
enjoy being outdoors doing
heavy labor. The trees,
shrubs, and beds all need to
be fertilized, and mulch
needs to be thickened every-
where, and that is tedious if
it becomes too hot.

using melalucca because of
conservation efforts, but I
have to wait to do that next

will not use the red-colored

that component is helps the

to me that the suppliers are
very slow in getting anything

'Durang 6'

not short on

talent, laughs

FROM CONTRIBUTOR
Playwright Christopher
Durang is a master of parodies
that lovingly skewer overdone
classics, show biz phonies and
clueless actors.
For his first directing assign-
ment at Players by the Sea,
Jacksonville University theatre
grad Carl Baum chose six of
Durang's short plays, offering
a theatre insider's evening of
laughter and fun.
"Durang 6" runs tonight
and Saturday at 8 p.m at 106
6th St. N., Jacksonville Beach.
Tickets are $12.
Baum has assembled a cast
of familiar PBTS faces and tal-
ented newcomers to play mul-
tiple roles. The cast includes
David Paul, Holly Gutshall,
Maya Adkins, Andrew Cardy,
Lisa Wilford, Redgie Gutshall
and Chris Farrell.
The entertaining short plays
include "Mrs. Sorken," about
an over-eager volunteer whose
lecture on the history of
drama takes an unorthodox
turn when she misplaces her
notes.
For "Whom the Southern
Belle Tolls" is a gender-crossed
version of Tennessee Williams'
"The Glass Menagerie," in
which a harassed southern
matron hopes to free herself of:
her neurotic offspring with the
help of a Feminine Caller.
In "Business Lunch at the
Russian Tea Room," a young
playwright sees his script
steam-rollered by a fast-talking;
studio executive.
The Hardy Boys and the
Mystery of "Where Babies
Come From" features the
empty-headed young sleuths
coming up against the machi-
'nations of evil Nurse Ratched.
n "Womari Stand-Up," a
depressed comic tries hopeless-
ly to get a laugh. The evening
is capped by "The Actor's
-Nightmare," which brings to.'-
life the classic anxiety dream
of many performers. In it, a
bewildered young man finds
himself onstage with no idea
of his lines or even what play
he's appearing in.
"I thought I was an actount-
ant," he muses.

Matheson: Drip irrigation hot topic


Cont. from B-1
my lawn?
Yes, anytime from now until
about the middle of April is
fine. Use a lawn fertilizer
product that has at least 50
percent of its nitrogen in a
slow-release form, so it will
continue to feed the grass for
numerous weeks. Remember
that any of the weed and feed
products do not kill existing
weeds. Bonus S is one of
these, but there are plenty of
others. It is too late to apply a
weed and feed for weeds that
would occur during the early
to late spring. If you remem-
ber having had many weeds
in May and June, wait until
mid to late April if you are
insistent on applying a weed
and feed product. Remember,
if you do not apply it at the
correct time, you will be feed-
ing those weeds.
Is this the time to sod my
lawn?
Yes. Buy fresh sod that is
green and lush in appearance.
The St. Augustine sod I have
seen on the Southside of town
has looked remarkably
healthy. Prices don't seem out-
rageous this year. For example,
I heard a commercial for a,
pallet of Floratam for $100,
although I don't remember
what company had that offer.
SIt is always good idea to
rake the area clean of any
dead grass, then dampen it ,
just before laying the sod. We


never want the layer of sod
dirt that meets the yard's dirt
to go dry. Because of this, if
you can rent a roller to help
form this bond, your sod will
take quicker and you'll have
fewer problems from the start.
Do NOT fertilize right after
you lay the sod; wait until
you can see new blades shoot-
ing up and the attachment
seems firm. Be sure to water
whatever product in so as to
avoid a chemical bum.
How do I get rid of a mole,
some stray cats, an armadillo,
and other critters, without
poisoning them?
The mole is there because it
is eating insects in your lawn;
if you eliminate his food
source, he will go elsewhere.
Depending on the insect, you
may have to resort to a chemi-
cal for this.
However, cayenne pepper,
garlic powder, cumin, moth
balls, really smelly chicken or
horse manure might thwart
them, or aluminum dish pans
banging into each other just
may do the trick! Some people
lay out plastic snakes and
plastic owls to send the mes-
sage.
Is this Knockout Rose all its
cracked up to be?
This question comes up fre-
quently, perhaps because it
has been touted as "the won-'
der plant of the decade."
So far, the Knockout Roses
have been quite wonderful,


especially where they receive
some of the harshest gas
fumes, bicycles riding over
them, boiling reflective heat
from pavements, and basical-
ly, a lot of neglect. The shop-
ping malls seem to have gor-
geous ones, whereas many
homeowners are not as lucky.
To date, I am not aware of a
specific problem the plant
has.
Drip irrigation seems to be a
hot topic this season. What's
so good about it?
Drip irrigation, also called
micro-irrigation, is recom-
mended for beds of plants,
not generally for use in the
lawn. The main reason it is so
talked about is because it con-
serves water: because the
water goes directly into the
soil, and doesn't arch as it
does with many irrigation sys-
tems, the water is not lost to
evaporation.
Some irrigation systems are
easy to work on and can be
redone by a novice, while oth-
ers need a person who really
knows what he is doing. If
you have some sprinkler
heads that need to be
changed, you might be able to
get the advice and materials at
one of the local stores, com-
pleting the job inexpensively.
That's it for today. If you
need help with gardening,
please call for a master gar-
dener at 387-8850.

Marin exhibit opens at J


Johnson Gallery

Gallery will open its
first new exhibit in
2007. Javier Marin's sculp-
tures will be featured at the
gallery through May 11. A
reception will be held from 6
to 8 p.m. tonight.
Expect not beauty, but
rather skill in handling of
materials in both large and
small works. Marin strives to
create something different
with the human figure rather
than something of beauty.

Beach. Call 435-3200.

Last night, Robert Vavra

Call 491-7303.
Look forward to "Intrinsic
Nature," new paintings by
Jennifer J. L. Jones,which

large, colorful, no-subject
paintings are contemporary
works the like of which we
would expect in metropolitan
areas.
They will be a welcome
change from Florida flora and
fauna prevalent in works by
most local artists. Stellers
Gallery Annex is at 200 First
Street, Neptune Beach. Call
247-7200.

It is with regret that I
report that Mary Marx, direc-.
tor of the Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra, will be:leaving
her post. Marx has been a
dynamic director who has
brought outstanding exhibits
to the Center over the past
several years.
Classes and other activities
have grown in both size and
quality. Receptions have been
a special event anticipated by
everyone. This loss to the
community is great. We wish
Mary success and happiness
in her new work.

"Zodiac" is the story of a fas-
cinating, endless jigsaw puz-
zle. At first, many people are
eager to put the puzzle togeth-
er. But as often happens,
Many of the principals lose
interest after a while, until
Only a single puzzle player is
left.
But in this case, the fascina-
tion is most morbid. The puz-
zle is a string of killings in the
Slate 1960's and early '70s, by a
Sman idfenifpg~.~gh self only
. as "The Zodiac."
The pIzz'" players include
San Francisco police, and
reporters s from the city's news-
.._paper, The Chronicle. And
After several years, the lone
Player is Robert Graysmith
SJake Gyllenhaal), a Chronicle
Editorial cartoonist who
Became fascinated by the case
and eventually wrote a book
About it.
:: Director David Fincher's
movies tend to dwell on the
more repulsive side of human,


REVIEWER

nature ("Fight Club," "Se7en").
Surprisingly, with a story
about the murderer of several
women, Fincher eases back on
the gore here; we see only two
of the killings.
Nevertheless, a palpable ten-
sion buzzes through "Zodiac,"
mostly from the people who
are, on the case and always
seem to come *this close* to


finding the killer, only to have
some final detail throw them
off the scent.
Three of the killer's hunters
are the most interesting. They
are David Toschi (Mark
Ruffalo), a police inspector
whose worldly cynicism is
worn down into simple resig-
nation by the Zodiac's elusive-
ness; Paul Avery (Robert
Downey Jr.), whose wise-
cracking manner briefly gets
him marked as a Zodiac tar-
: gget; and Graysmith, whose
obsession with the case almost
makes him, not a physical vic-
tim of the Zodiac, but a psy-
chic one.
The Zodiac case was never
officially solved, so the movie
must extend its initial ten-
sions by showing the toll that
this case takes on its investiga-
tors.
And on that level, the
movie mostly succeeds. Its
final half-hour tends to mean-
der a little, but the movie is


never unwatchable and is
nearly always psychologically
gripping.
The cast is excellent.
Downey provides the movie's
comic relief -- at least, as
much such relief as you can
get in a movie about a relent-
less killer -- and he does so
quite stylishly.
With his one-liners and
world-weariness, Ruffalo is a
close second. And Gyll.h4Jl
continues to demonstrated l s
likability and versatility.
For me, the most effective
movie thrillers aren't those
that rub your face in gore, but
instead explore underlying
fears -- the ones you *don't*
see.
On that basis, "Zodiac"
might just be David Fincher's
best movie.
"Zodiac" is rated R for adult
language, and scenes of drug
use and killings.


Rock: Buscemi shines


Cont. from B-I
office's females size her up
with an unflattering accura-
cy. (Her idea of a fun time is
to throw dollar bills out
Richard's office windowarid
watch pedestrians skitter to
grab them.)
For a good (actually bad)
part of the movie, Richard is
surprisingly dumb about
Nikki's intentions. Whereas
any smart married man
would have security officers
quietly remove Nikki from
the building, Richard contin-
ually chats up Nikki behind
closed doors and then won-
ders why everyone bad-
mouths her.
The audience knows where
this is going long before


Richard (and, seemingly,
writer Rock) ever do. Nikki
strings Richard along for a
while, eventually he cuts her
off, then he misses the thrill
of the hunt and seeks her
out all over again. And even
though there's every reason
to sympathize with Richard's
wife Brenda, Gina Torres
plays her mostly as an
uptight, demanding prig.
The movie's sole bright
spot is Steve Buscemi as
George, Richard's philander-
ing co-worker. George is the
only novel conceit in a
movie that otherwise comes
off as an R-rated episode of
"Love, American Style."
The film is rated R for sex-
ual situations and profanity.

No film says St. Pat's


Day like 'Quiet Man'


by STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
No other movie says St.
Patrick's Day like that
love letter to Ireland,
"The Quiet Man" (1952).
In it, John Wayne plays an
American boxer who returns to
Ireland to reclaim his family
home. When he falls in lover
with a fiery neighbor (Maureen
O'Hara), the woman's older
brother (Victor McLaglen)
wants to fight the boxer, who is
hesitant to do so because his
Duke's dukes previously killed a
man. So rent it, and regale
friends with the following triv-
ia.
1. Director John Ford pur-
chased the film rights for $10.
2. Ford, Wayne, and O'Hara
made a "handshake" agreement
in 1944 to produce the film.
3. Ford and Wayne were told
by various Hollywood produc-
ers'that the movie was "a silly
Irish story that won't make a
penny."
4. Republic Pictures agreed to
make the movie only if Ford
and Wayne would make a sure-
fire money-maker for the stu-
dio in return. That movie
turned out to be Wayne's
Western classic, "Rio Grande"
(1950).
5. Only two weeks of the
movie's filming actually took
place in Ireland.
6. The movie's Cohan's Pub
was actually a grocery store.
But the movie became so popu-
lar that the grocery store never
removed the movie's pub
facade.
7. Ireland's national color,
green, can be seen in every
shot of the movie -- except on
the actors' costumes.
8. A famous scene in the
movie shows O'Hara trying to


slap Wayne, only to have
Wayne block the blow and kiss
O'Hara. (The scene is famously
"quoted" in Steven Spielberg's
"E.T.") When Wayne blocked
the blow, he inadvertently
broke a bone in O'Hara's hand.
9. In a precursor to the
recent "Lost in Translation," the
movie's closing scene shows
O'Hara eliciting a huge reaction
from Wayne by whispering
something in his ear. The only
people who ever knew what
O'Hara said were Wayne, Ford,
and O'Hara herself, who swore
the men to secrecy. The line of
dialogue remains unknown.
10. The movie gave low-
budget Republic Pictures its
only Best Picture Oscar nomi-
nee.

It's bladderwort


season again


It's bladderwort season
again on our backyard
retention pond.
Bladderworts are coming to
the surface on their radial
floats, and sticking their yel-
low flower heads up into the
air, where polli-
nators can find
them. If this
bloom contin-
ues like last
spring, before
long much of
the surface of -
the pond will
look like a
meadow of yel-
low flowers.
But bladder-
worts are no
ordinary plants.
Like pitcher
plants, and
Venus flytraps, Pat Tu
bladderworts COL
are carnivorous
and need added
nutritional sources that they
obtain by consuming live
prey. Bladderworts are a
native plant, and they thrive
on our retention pond con-
suming amoebas and, better
yet, mosquito larvae! Most of
the year, they perform these
tasks sight unseen at the bot-
tom of the pond. But spring
is the time for all sorts of
organisms to flourish, and


1e
UA


these plants are no excep-
tion.
Last year this bloom of
floating plants caused much
consternation in our develop-
ment. What are they? Will
they take over the pond?
Should we
finally break
down and get
the pond
chemically
treated, like
every other
pond on the
island? My
v. i.. Ad friend Karen
g Brown of the.
University of
Florida's
Center for
Aquatic Plants
was able to
identify the
ay-Foster bladderworts
oMNIST and informed
me about their
attributes.
Sure enough, as predicted, in
a month or two, again they
sunk from sight once again
without any chemical inter-
vention. And all we pond-
side residents discovered the
good use of these native
plants we have far fewer
mosquitoes in our back yards
than do other residents in
our neighborhood without
the pond nearby.


Our backyard pond is a
non-chemically treated pond.
It is a viable circulatory
node. Although the water is
not crystal clear, it is home
to an amazing diversity of
freshwater animals year-
round. Those of us bordering
the pond have learned to live
with a sometimes messy-
looking water surface, in
exchange for the animals
that flourish in this more
natural freshwater environ-
ment.
The past few days, for
instance, I've been watching
"Little Duck," the single .
piedbilled grebe that visits
the pond each winter. In
actual fact, there may be a
series of different "Little
Ducks" in different years, but
most often a singleton.
Earlier this winter, three
much larger hooded mer-
gansers kept Little Duck com-
pany, but they have gone.
Amazingly, though, in their


place has come another pied-
billed grebe. Little Duck has a
partner! Although I know
they only winter here and
breed further north and I
won't see their entire unique
courtship behavior, they are
already nuzzling one another
in grebe foreplay.
Although pied-billed grebes
and mergansers are only win-
ter visitors, the pond attracts
its regular year-round birds
too. Great blue herons, little
blue herons, great egrets,
kingfishers, redshouldered
hawks and even a rail are reg-
ular pond visitors, and many
other woodland bird species
frequent the bordering tall
pine and red maple trees.
Now that it's nearly spring,
the pond turtles are becom-
ing more,active, floating on
the surface, facing each other
in courtship displays and
sunning themselves out on
the banks of the pond. I've
also seen the first active

help rid ponds of mosquito larvae, but herbicide use has dimin-
ished their existence in some areas.


banded water snakes of the
season, crisscrossing the
pond in their foraging activi-
ties. A number of different
species of frogs are also
beginning to shout their wel-
comes to warm weather and
each other.
If you go to freshwater
Willow Pond in Fort Clinch
State Park or take a drive up
to the Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge you can see
many of these freshwater ani-
mals. Amazingly, some still
barely.manage to hold on in
the freshwater part of the
Greenway, too.


In the Okefenokee bladder-
worts thrive alongside
blooming pitcher plants,
resplendent in the next few
months along the borrow pit
freshwater channels of the
reserve. Take a drive up there
and see what environment,
with some work, we still have
a hope of restoring and
maintaining, here in the
south section of our
Greenway. Bigger freshwater
restoration projects have
been successfully accom-
plished in our own state and
around the world.


PhotogLraiphy at GTM

An exhibition of the photography of Daryl LaBello and Christine Simonetti, which opened
Thursday at the GTM Reserve Environmental Education Center, will be on display through June
14th. Friends of the GTMNERR will host an artist reception at the center from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Pools add relaxation and value to your home


First, the dash knobs fell
off. Then the left rear
window motor went out.
It was time for a new car, but
despite these minor inconven-
iences, it ran like a champ. We
could squeeze another year
out of the old
gray mare ...
maybe two.
What we real-
ly wanted to
buy was a
pool. So we
signed the
papers to
begin con-
struction.
Besides a
hotel bed,
there's not
much else
that can make
grown people KATHRY
want to run HOME C(
and flop like a
swimming
pool does. It brings out the 8-
year-old in everyone. Pools
have a bad reputation,-
though. Most are thought to
be time-consuming money
drains. While it's true that
pools do require care, pools
today don't require nearly the
work they once did.
Easier than ever
Today, features like
improved filters, efficient
pumps, and automatic pool
cleaners make quick work of
maintenance. Our pool sales-
man promised our pool
wouldn't take more than 15
minutes of maintenance each
week. Well, he was wrong it
takes a whole five minutes. A
simple test of the chemicals
every week is about all it
needs. Occasionally, we empty
out the pool sweeper and fil-
ter baskets. Twice a year we
spray off our filters.


1


Our pool also has high fil-
tration that doesn't waste
water like older sand filters. A
recent tour of some California
homes showed that water-
conscious Californians favor
these filters, which only need
cleaning
every six
months and
replaced
about every
three years.
And mainte-
nance chemi-
cal costs? The
cost of chem-
S icals are less
f than if we'
tried to take
our family to
the movies a
few times
N WEBER during the
)LUMNIST summer to
keep cool -
and the pool's
much more fun.

A great addition
Yes, our whole family has
derived a level of enjoyment
with our pool that no car
could ever give us. Like those
frosty nights dashing through
the cold to sit in the hot tub,
the stars twinkling through
the steam. Or the fun of see-
ing a gaggle of kids jumping
and playing in the water.
What car could ever give that
kind of unbridled enjoyment
or sheer relief of the summer
heat? Yes, living in a hot cli-
mate makes a pool a necessity.
Having a pool also helps com-
bine outdoor and indoor liv-
ing, making the house more
unified and valuable.
According to Move.com
(tinyurl.com/2dtkyn),
inground pools in hot areas
like the Southwest can
increase a house value by

A swimming pool becomes an outdoor room that's fun for the entire family, creates a relaxing atmosphere for entertaining, and can
add value to your home. Pools are increasingly more in demand and pools today almost maintain themselves.


about 11 percent.
Pool thoughts
Deciding to put in a pool is
a big decision. With thorough
planning and careful selection
of your contractor, you'll get
the most enjoyment out of
your pool. Some other factors
to consider are add-ons like
fountains or spas. A spa that
overflows into the pool won't


Sbe as expensive as a separate
spa and fountain or water fea-
ture. Also, allow for items
such as tanning shelves, seats
that allow bathers a place to,
sit in the pool.
One must-have add-on is a
smooth finish. Most pools
have a rough texture on the
bottom that can quickly cause
sores on swimmers' feet after
being in the pool only a cou-


ple of hours. Our smooth bot-
tom added a little over $1,000
to the price but was so worth
it for the enjoyment and for
the life it adds to the pool fin-
ish.
If you're on the fence, get
in the pool. Pools are wonder-
ful additions and more people
want them than ever because
more people want to be enter-
tained and relax at home. A


pool can provide all that -
making your house more
valuable and more fun, and
your family more relaxed.
That's a good deal to me.

It may seem counterintuitive, but BMW developed an engine that improved both. A
magnesium and aluminum engine block reduces weight, while Valvetronic technolo-
gy manages valve timings and lift, allowing the engine to breathe more easily. In the
3 Series, this means the inline six-cylinder, 230-hp engine provides a blissful union
of fuel efficiency (20 city/29 highway mpg)' and performance (0-60 in 6.3 sec.)2. To
experience first hand how great ideas like these live on to become Ultimate Driving
