by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The early worm will catch the
fish Sunday morning at the
Jacksonville Beach pier parking
lot which will close by 10 a.m. to
accommodate the opening
parade.
Jimmy Wilkins of 'the city's
Parks and Recreation
Department said anglers will be
allowed to utilize a portion of
the pier lot for parking between
6 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
"If we don't get in there and
close it early it will fill up," he
said.
Wilkins said the pier lot is
used as a staging area for the fire
engines, emergency vehicles and
lifeguard trucks that are partici-
pating in the 61st annual parade
to commemorate the official
opening of the Beaches.


The location is critical because
it allows space for the emer-
gency vehicles to get out quickly
without impacting the rest of
the floats, he said.
"If there is a fire in the city
they will be able to respond,"
Wilkins said.
The parade will begin at 2
p.m. and is expected to last
about an hour and a half. It will
proceed up 2nd Street North
from Beach Boulevard, turn east
at 11th Avenue North and pro-
ceed south on First Street.
Wilkins said the pier parking lot
should reopen between 4 and 5
p.m.
Both 1st and 2nd Streets will
be closed between Beach
Boulevard and 6th Avenue
North at 9:30 a.m. until after the
parade. Those same streets will
be closed from 6th Avenue
North to llth Avenue North
from 1 p.m. Sunday until after
the parade passes by.
Walk up traffic will be permit-
ted on the pier while the lot is
closed.

Jail's 'revolving door' worries JB


Police chief sympathetic to Jax's situation

but seeks extra attention for repeaters


by KATHLEEN BAILEY
EDITOR
Charles Wesley Hammond, 45, has been arrested*
seven times in the lastyear. He has been accused of
smashing a beer bottle over a store clerk's head, stab-
bing one guy in October and another in January,
putting the last victim in intensive care for two
weeks.
Michael Gregory Valentine, 39, has also been in
many Jacksonville Beach police patrol cars in the last
year after being arrested 11 times in the last 12
months for a variety of charges.
The transients are able to rack up so many arrests
because, in large part, there is a lack of space in the
county jail, which also serves Beaches police depart-
ment, authorities said. That means many of those
arrested at the Beaches for breaking the law are
arraigned and very quickly released, according to
local law enforcement officials.
"There is a level of frustration on the part of our
citizens that there seems to be a revolving door [in
the county jail and courthouse]," Jacksonville Beach
Police Chief Bruce Thomason said in an interview
with The Leader last week. He said the number of
repeat offenders is a concern to him and his officers,
acknowledging the "quick".release of some arrestees
is a "political hot potato."
The lack of space in the jail is a problem and the
legal system would be "swamped" if the state attor-
ney's office tried every case, he said, so that means
judges and the state attorney have to choose priori-
ties.
"I'm not going to criticize them, not having
walked in their shoes," Thomason said.
Thomason said, however, he would like the state
attorney to take a more aggressive approach in some
cases.
In some instances, he said, Jacksonville Beach
police will arrest someone on felony charges and
then the charges are routinely dropped to misde-
meanor status and "quite often" the offender is given
credit for time served and released after a first
appearance before a judge.
To get the attention of the state attorney,
Thomason and his officers are compiling a list of
"cases that from our perspective we feel more should
have been done."
He said that information will be shared with the
state attorney soon as he plans to ask State Attorney
Harry Shorstein to review the matter "and please
give us some help."
Already, with approval from the state attorney's
office, the Jacksonville Beach police have begun
notating the arrest docket to make sure the narrative
shows the number of times the police have arrested
the individual already.
"This is something we wanted the judge to see,"
Thomason said. "So if the judge has not seen this

area using a variety of transportation.
person before he [the judge] can know this is the
tenth time the person has been in court in so many
months. We want to make sure judges have all the
information."
HABITUAL OFFENDERS
Richard Mantei, division chief in county courts,
said that anyone convicted of four or more first
degree misdemeanors in a 12-month period is eligi-
ble to be classified as a "habitual offender" and get a
mandatory minimum sentence of 6 months. A first
degree misdemeanor offense could be theft, battery
and trespassing, but not something such as drinking
in public or violating an open container law.

"[To call it low] that would
be an understatement," she
said. "I'm talking empty
shelves. We have no fruit, three


jars of jelly and a couple of jars
of peanut butter."
Funkhouser said it is com-
mon for demand for food to
cycle in waves. The nonprofit
organization was hit with a
"huge need" in March that cre-
ated the shortfall, she said.

The many arrests of
Charles Hammond, are an Bruce Thomson,
example of the revolving Tp hief
door that frustrates police, policechief
according to authorities.
Jacksonville Beach Police
Chief Bruce Thomason said
he was, alarmed by
Hammond's' alleged
actions, citing his latest
arrest in January for
stabbing a man.
A few weeks ago, when a
hearing on the matter was
scheduled, Thomason said
he dispatched detectives to
the courthouse to make
sure that'the judge heard Hammond
about the department's concerns that the 45-year-old
transient might be released.
After a surprised state attorney asked the officers
why they were in the courtroom since they had not
been summoned, they said they wanted to make sure
the judge was fully informed about Hammond's his-
tory. The judge decided to put off the matter,
Thomason said. Then, last weekend, the department
was advised that the judge had ordered Hammond to
jail for 11 months for violating his probation that he
had been given after a September incident involving
hitting a store clerk over the head with a beer bottle.
He was released Oct. 17 in that incident and arrested
10 days later for aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon in the stabbing of a man on the boardwalk.
That was a separate incident from the January stab-
bing.
Police officers hope that during his incarceration
Hammond will "calm down and decide to go some-
where else," the chief said.
'!That will keep him off the streets and that is good
because I had determined we were going to watch
him more closely than we would normally,"
Thomason said. "We knew something had to be done
or he's going to kill someone."
. The victim in one of the incidents said in an e-mail
to The Leader that he puts the responsibility on the
state attorney's office.
"The police in Jacksonville Beach do an excellent
job enforcing the laws," the victim wrote. "It's up to
the judiciary and States Attorney to carry out just sen-
tencing. Once again the wave of crime has landed in
Jacksonville Beach. What will Hammond do next
when he is released?"

"Big improvement," he said.
"Some of them wouldn't even
move. Now we've got them
actually running through the
[agility] ladder. It's really gone
well, and the kids seem to feel
real good about themselves. We
love giving it. Makes you want
to come to work."
The Alden Road youngsters,
who have varying degrees of
special needs, have attended
clinics at the tennis center cour-
tesy of the United States Tennis
Association [USTA], in conjunc-

"They had a wonderful time
[last year], and you can see the
progress of their skills over

They've done really, really
well," said Lulee Rady, school
social worker at Alden Road.
Rady said Wednesday was the
group's end-of-year celebration.
"This is a play day," she said.
"We normally have three courts
with specific skills that we're
trying. However, this is a fun
day for us. We're having a cook-
out, we're having hot dogs and

FROM STAFF
A vow to help a citizen will result in
additional wheelchair beach access ramp
for Neptune Beach.
Construction on the city's third
wheelchair ramp, which is at the
Hopkins Street access, began approxi-
mately three weeks ago.
"I'm just delighted that we've been
able to do what we've done," said
Councilor Harriet Pruette, who initiated*
the in-house project after a resident
requested her help several years ago.
Jill Bonner wrote a letter several years
ago requesting wheelchair access ramps
to the beach because she had several
friends who were having trouble getting
over the dunes.
The city has two other ramps at Davis
Street and Town Center, but according
to Pruette, the city has been trying to get


Arrests:

He said that all should be
aware that the burden to
convict someone is much
higher than the burden to
arrest.
Atlantic Beach Police Chief
David Thompson said that
his city does not have as
many problems as
Jacksonville Beach with a
"revolving door", adding that
there are very few problems
with violent transients in
Atlantic Beach. Securing jail
space is usually not a prob-
lem, he said:
He said that at a recent
luncheon with Jacksonville
Sheriff John Rutherford, he
and the sheriff discussed jail
space and its possible impact
on the city of Atlantic
Beach's current attempt to


an additional ramp at the Hopkins Street
access for several years, primarily
because there is also disabled parking in
the area. The city could not get approval
for a permit from the Environmental
Protection Agency.
"If at first you don't succeed, try, try
again," said City Manager Jim Jarboe in
response to finally getting the permit
from the EPA.
The Hopkins Street ramp became an
important one for Pruette when Bonner
came back to her and said that she also
wanted the ramp because of her own
health issues.
Bonner died before the permit came
through and the city was able to start
construction.
"I promised her I'd do what I could,"
said Pruette, who continued to work
toward getting the ramp.


curb prostitution along

"The sheriff told me last
week that 'we've never turned
a prostitute away from the
back door of the jail because
we didn't have space,'"
Thompson said the sheriff
told him.

Pruette said she plans on speaking to
the city council about putting a plaque
at the ramp as a dedication to honor
Bonner and her efforts.
The city anticipates that construction
will be complete in August, although it
is not definitive due to a hiatus begin-
ning in May for sea turtle nesting sea-
son.
Pruette said that the ramp is also help-
ful for senior citizens, who may also
have trouble getting over the dunes,
adding that all beach accesses should be
wheelchair accessible, but limited
resources have prevented it.
The city also has two wheelchairs
available for citizens who need help get-
ting on the beach, Pruette said.

Donations


FROM STAFF
A box of used soccer gear
donated by Ponte Vedra fam-
ilies ended up on some chil-
dren in Panama last week
during an event that may end
up being long-term.
Uniforms, cleats and shin
guards once used on playing
fields in Ponte \edra were
used in a 30-minute soccer
game in the country that
connects Central and South
America.
The game was organized by
a niece of Ponte Vedra resi-
dent Alicia Hamilton, whose
9-year-61d son plays recre-
ation soccer with the Ponte
Vedra Soccer Club.
The niece, Kelly
Cummings, is serving two
years in Panama with the
Peace Corps. She used the
uniforms and the occasion of
World Youth Weekend to cre-
ate a fun event that has
sparked a new interest in the
children's sport.
"I had 20 kids from the ele-
mentary school sign up for a
soccer game, and we ended
up with 14 not a bad
showing," Cummings said in
a recent e-mail message to
her aunt.
"They were 6 to 8 years old,
and we played two 15-minute
halves. Then afterwards, I
provided them with cookies
and juice donated by local
stores.
"It was really fun and, as a
result, one of the girls'
fathers wants to start a team

that practices in the after-
noons and plays on the week-
ends. They want to start play-
ing neighboring towns, too."
Hamilton, who spearhead-
ed the uniform collection,
said it is not easy for her
niece to communicate with
the outside world.
"My niece lives about two
hours away by dugout
canoe and bus from the
city where she can use the
internet, so communication
is sporadic," Hamilton said in
an e-mail this week.
She said the uniforms,
balls, cleats and shin guards
were collected in the fall so
that she could get them
shipped before Christmas.
She said the club is collect-


ing more soccer gear this
weekend and May 5 at Davis
Park, off County Road 210
about one mile west of the
Palm Valley bridge,
"It's a small step, but in a
time where so much of the
world sees us as the ugly
Americans who do nothing
but consumer, it sends a bet-
ter message," she said.
Donations will be accepted
at Davis Park 9 a.m. to 2 pm.
both days.
The Leader will accept dona-
tions on behalf of the club
weekdays through May 4 at

The Leader's Opinion


Focusing on future

will serve NB well

Neptune Beach is holding a trio of meetings to
develop a long-range vision for the community.
Agreeing on a "vision" may make some uncom-
fortable as is may seem too New Age. If so, then
substitute either goal or plan for the word vision.
No matter what term you use, though, the objec-
tive is to make it clear what the city will look like
three decades from now and provide a clearly lit
path for getting there.
Such illumination is needed, given that it is all
too easy to make decisions today that will set a
precedent for the long term for both good and
bad.
Most would agree that the future is likely to
bring change to Neptune Beach, the smallest -
and youngest city on the barrier island.
We would suggest that two key objectives should
drive Neptune Beach's decision-making and vision-
setting. The quiet residential community must
commit to maintaining the quality of life for all
those who call the seaside city home. The second
mission, essential to accomplishing the first, is
maintaining the political independence of the
community.
The smallest city has already shuttered what fire
department it had a volunteer force. It must
stand firm against ceding any other essential civic
duties in the future.
Tomorrow's Neptune Beach will only be as good
as today's vision is for shaping the city's future.


Letters to the editor:


Bird Island program a real success


To the editor:
On behalf of the Board of
Directors of Bird Island Park
at Library Boulevard, I would
like to thank everyone who
came out to see the prospec-
tive park on Earth Day! More
than 100 families and 300
children enjoyed a beautiful
day in the soon-to-be-park!
Adults and children went on a
scavenger hunt through the
4.2 acres behind the library.
They discovered the location
of the sea turtle maze, the
story telling area, the dune
area, the marsh area, the
interactive children's play
area, gazebo locations and
much more.
- Three fabulous storytellers
entertained in the gazebo and
beautiful butterflies were
released by children into the
wild! We had information
about native plants, how to
plant butterfly gardens and be
more earth friendly.
Gail Cooper with Spratt
Designs did a fantastic job
designing the new Bird Island
Park logo! Heritage Bank
sponsored our tee shirts, hats
and tote bags, so the patrons


could pick up some logo mer-
chandise after making a dona-
tion to the park. Winn Dixie
sponsored cold .drinks and
delicious snacks for everyone
to enjoy!
Wonderful volunteers from
the Bird Island Park Earth Day
committee with Mary Watson
chairing the event, Nease
ROTC and Landrum students
made set-up and clean-up fast
and efficient. These volun-
teers also helped in the differ-
ent areas throughout the day.
We couldn't have done it with
out them!
A big thank you to all who
made this event a huge suc-'
cess, it's impossible to list all
of you! Thanks to the com-
munity for showing us how
much you support this park
project. We 'will keep work-
ing, with your help, to build
it for all to enjoy for many
years to come!
For any questions or to
donate, please contact us!

The thumb is not exactly green

but the memories are vivid


"Where have all the
flowers gone?"
ete Seeger asked that
question in a song about
50 years ago, and my
wife asks the same thing
sometimes after I've been
weed-eating. She knows I
know nothing about flowers
or plants or even fruit trees
I cut down her yarrow,,
thinking it was a weed. I
planted some tulips that
bloomed two inches off the
ground. I even called an
orange grove an orchard in a
recent column. (A nice reader
in Blue Ridge, Ga., corrected
me on two points: First, if it's
oranges or other citrus prod-
ucts, it's a grove. Second, you
don't "harvest" oranges; you
pick 'em.)
Ignorant as I am of things
horticultural, I still appreci-
ate the beauty and special-
ness of some of the perennial
flowers and plants in our
yard. They're special because
they came from good friends
who are no longer here. And
we remember them every
spring and summer as their
gifts reappear: the Lenten
rose from a beloved boss, Lou
Fockele; the ajuga from my
mother-in-law, Fannie Miller;
lilies of the valley from my
father, J. Edwin Hudgins; rose
campion from Jack Naish, a

friend and Sunday school
teacher; aucuba from Sara
Grayson, a neighbor who
became an extra grandmoth-
er to our daughters.
If you think I remembered
the names of all those plants
and flowers, let me be hon-
est; I had help. I am still a lit-'
tie shaky, actually, on identi-
fying poison ivy with cer-
tainty, but I recollect rather

As for where plants' like to
be, well, you'd do better to
ask the plant itself. I'm like
the woman who heard a' ser-
mon about theta Father's ten-
der wisdom in caring for us
all.
The Father, ler.pastor said,
knows who grows: best in
sunlight and who must have
shade. "You know you plant


roses in the sunshine," he
said, "and heliotrope and
geraniums. But if you want
your fuchsias to grow, they
must be kept in a shady
nook."
After the service, the min-
ister saw the woman
approach, her face glowing
with pleasure. Surely he had
touched her heart, he
thought. "Oh," she said, "I
am so grateful for that ser-
mon. Yes, I never knew
before what was the matter
with my fuchsias."
I do like working the soil,
I must say, and therein lies
my hope. A new study from
Bristol University suggests
that dirt contains certain
good bacteria that may be
able to combat depression.
"The bacteria apparently
stimulates a mood-regulating
part of the brain's limbic sys-
tem," The Week magazine
reports. So it's good to play

To the editor:'
.I wanted to respond to Ms.
Cosentino's letter regarding
Atlantic Beach Elementary
School (ABE). I think it is
wonderful when parents
write positive letters recog-
nizing the hard work and
diligence occurring at their
community schools. Atlantic
Beach is a wonderful and
outstanding school. Our son
went there and is now a col-
lege graduate.
Again, as was stated, the
now retiring principal, All
Register, has always been a
wonderful, supportive
administrator. I know my
wife, the students, and par-
ents of ABE will greatly miss
her companionship and lead-
ership.
With all the demands
placed on our teachers I


know my wife, known to her
students and parents as "Mrs.
Fogg", will take encouFage-
ment from Ms. Cosentino's
kind words. Every evening I
must await my wife's arrival
for dinner because she usual-
ly stays at school until after
5:30 p.m. (long after her con-
tractual hours), getting ready
for the demanding curricu-
lum she must include for the
next day. After dinner each
night, on Saturdays, and
many Sundays, she labors
until about 10 at night grad-
ing papers, preparing, proj-
ects, and planning lessons.
"Mrs. Fogg" is a veteran
teacher at ABE. She has pre-
viously been selected as their
"Teacher of the Year", and
was also recognized as a
"Regional Teacher of the
Year". She. also spends her.


own time (uncompensated)
in the summer attending
workshops, going up to ABE
to work in her room, and rep-
resenting ABE for science and
math workshops. Mrs. Fogg
has a Masters Degree in
Counseling' but has chosen,
to remain in the classroom
because she loves the daily
contact with her students.
Obviously, I am proud of
my wife and her contribution
to making ABE a great
school. We would both like
to thank Ms. Cosentino for
recognizing the quality expe-
rience her children are
receiving, and all of the posi-
tive parents who also con-
tribute so much to making
ABE an outstanding school.

Jax Beach's collection of yard


waste could stand improvement


To the editor:
This week I had a friend help me in trim-
ming some palm trees on my property.
We spent most of the day Tuesday stacking
the fronds neatly along the side of the house.
(I live on a corner lot).
At the rear of my house on the same side
street there was a smaller pile from the storm
two weeks ago that had not been picked up
last week that they DID remove.
Yesterday the garbage truck driver knocked
on my door and stated that the pile should
not exceed 5 feet! Excuse me!
He called his supervisor at my insistence
who stated he would come by and check the
problem out. Apparently he did but did not
knock on my door to advise me of his find-
ings as he had stated he would.
When I called the City this afternoon I was
told his report stated the fronds were over 5
feet in length. That is not true. I am only 5'7"


and none' are taller than I am.
My complaint is that firstly I have lived at
this address for 43 years having paid taxes
and garbage fees etc all that time.
Secondly the tag left stating the problem(?)
reads:-
(a) Number 8 in reference to cardboard.
There was no corrugated cardboard left for
collection and (b) NO.11 states collection is
limited to 5 cubic yards. NOT that the pile
should not exceed 5 feet.
I am extremely irritated and annoyed at the
actions of the city employees for their rude-
ness and handling of this problem.
It is a problem with garbage cans and lids
being thrown negligently and garbage left to
blow around the neighborhood without
added insult, being treated disrespectfully.

Real men

cook by

choice, but

only outside

Cooking out has been
going on since Biblical
times and the Good
Lord's disclosure of fire.
Moses, David, Jacob and those
other old boys did it because
they had .to. Man has always
been carnivorous, so I sup-
pose Sushi was the order of
the day before we learned
how to rub two sticks togeth-
er. Adam and his two boys
(before their nasty spat) must
have thrown a net out, hauled
in the catch, said a blessing I
hope, and then dug in. Again
they prepared it, because they
had to.
You see man was the hunter
and gatherer. He prepared
food, only when there were
no women around. When
they came home from tend-
ing the flocks or reaping what
they sowed, the wife got the
meal ready. Eve would make
all the fixings for her special
Yellow Tailed Tuna Rolls for
her hungry men. This dish is
still enjoyed today proving
that avocado was not the for-
bidden fruit' By Jacob's time
Rachel was cooking with gas,
or at least something that
burned, and serving up veri-
son. She'd present it at dinner
time with wine and steamed
rice. Come to think of it,
wineaiid rice. go pretty good.
within tshi t .oo .;i : ; .ii : ;'
This tradition of man cook-
ing out only when there were
no wives or Mamas .to do it
properly continued for several
thousand more years. From
Caesar's day to the rule of
General George Patton, when
a man said "honey I'm home"
he meant "how long till din-
ner!" Then shortly after
World War II this fellow by
the name of George Stephen
inherited control of the
Weber Brothers Metal
Spinning Company. He
would change the role of man
from a food preparer for sur-
vival to a food preparer by
choice!
According to the Food
Network; in the late 40s when
George Stephen took over
Weber Brothers, a company
best known as a maker of
Harbor buoys, he decided the
buoy needed some modifica-
tion. He cut them in half,
added a grate, used the top as
a lid, and cut vents for con-
trolling temperature. The
Weber grill was born and so
was the 1950s phenomenon
of voluntary manly man back-
yard cooking!
George Stephen was truly a
real man of genius, and all of
his male offspring should
receive Bud Light and every
other brand of beer, charcoal,
lighter fluid, marinade and
Worcestershire sauce free for
life. From all of the manly
men who have grilled pork,
chicken and ribs. From all
who have smoked ham,
turkey, brisket and the pride
of Boston. George Stephen,
Mr. Weber grill Inventor, this
Butts for you!

project
FROM STAFF
The city of Atlantic Beach will
reiterate its opposition to the
Moody Marine proposed project
in a letter to- the city of
Jacksonville.
Developers have proposed a
mixed use waterfront develop-
ment on the property which lies
under the; Atlantic Boulevard
bridge at the city's jurisdictiohal'
lirie.
f'Seven hundred proposed
condos is simply dangerous,"
said Commissioner Jamie
Fletcher at a meeting Monday.
"This proposed project would
add 52 minutes an hour to
the already failed [evacuation]
time."
Fletcher explained that the
project, as proposed, is "a dan-
ger to the citizens of Atlantic
Beach" due to the increase in
evacuation time for one of the
primary evacuation routes.
"Atlantic Boulevard already. fails
the minimum time standards,"
he said.
The commission requested
that staff write another letter to
express opposition to the project
as it is currently proposed, citing
objections that were listed in a
report from several state agen-
cies.
Some of the objections
include transportation issues,
increased hurricane evacuation
time and a loss of wetlands.
Some Jacksonville residents
have also expressed strong
opposition to the project.
A bill to apply for re-zoning
and a bill to amend the compre-
hensive plan were recently.

SCity Manager George
Forbes Thursday said he was
working closely with Public
Works Director Ty Edwards
on a flier that will explain
the details of the switch.
"We are being sensitive to
get all of this information
out there to our customers
before we make the change.
A lot of people aren't going
to know why we are doing
this," Forbes said. "It also
changes the pick up days for
some people.
Collection of household
garbage will remain the
same with twice weekly pick

cans will begin going out by
June 11:
"We'd like people to know
what is coming before [the
cans] show up at their door.
We can't just show up and
drop them off," Forbes said.
"These are city-owned and
people need to know that if
they move they can't take
these with them."
City officials last October
opted to switch to automat-
ed garbage collection twice a
week to reduce manpower
and safety concerns associat-
ed with manual pick up and
improve the quality of the
truck operators.
The existing five-year con-
tract with Southland Waste
Systems was extended to
provide the automated serv-
ice'.
A one-time fee of 50 cents
will be applied to residential
and commercial accounts
during the second year of
the extended contract. City
officials said they do not
anticipate an increase in
garbage rates.
"We are working real hard
on this," Forbes said. "We
are ready to get rolling."

'Mstcs of Faith' session at St. Paul's Episcopal focuses on Thomas Merton


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Twentieth Century monk
Thomas Merton will be the
topic for the Adult Forum
study on Sunday at St. Paul's
by the Sea Episcopal Church.
Merton's life and writings
are important "for people who
take Christianity seriously,"
said Victor Kramer, Ph.D. who
will be the guest speaker at the
event.
Kramer is a founding editor
of "The Merton Annual" and
has written extensively about
Merton.
He will speak on "Merton's
Writings as a Preparation for
Prayer Why Not be a Saint?"
at the Adult Forum. It will
begin at 8:45 a.m. in St.Paul's
Stormes Hall at 5th Street and
11th Avenue South in
Jacksonville Beach.
When Merton was baptized
a Roman Catholic in 1938, he
became focused on God and
obedience, said Kramer in a
telephone interview.
In 1941, Merton joined a
community of monks at the
Gethsemani Abbey in
Kentucky. He was ordained a
priest in 1949.
Merton was "told in the
monastery to write." A consis-
tent theme in his writings is
that "the love of God makes
you aware," said Kramer.
"Everything he did was
focused toward finding
God.....As the years passed he
became less and less interested
in himself."


Through prayer, Merton
became more attuned to the
rest of the world. Prayer made
it possible to look outward,
not inward, said Kramer.
Until his death in 1968,
Meton was a prolific writer of
books, articles, poetry, letters,
and journals. He was also an
artist and photographer.
Merton continues to be a
popular subject of study. His
works on ecumenism, race,
and peace are of interest to


both Christians and non-
Christians, said Kramer.
"The Seven Story
Mountain," Merton's autobi-
ography, has been translated
into over 15 languages and has
sold more than one million
copies, according to the
International Thomas Merton
Society's website www.mer-
ton.org.
Merton's books largely have
remained in print. New collec-
tions of his poems and other


writings are published fre-
quently, said Kramer.
"The Merton Annual;
Studies in Culture, Spirituality,
and Social Concerns has
been published yearly since
1988. Volume' 19, edited by
Kramer, is expected to be pub-
lished later this year.
Kramer has been a member
of the faculty at several uni-
versities, most recently at
Georgia State University. He
also served as the Director of

Forum on Sunday.


the Aquinas Center at Emory
University.
He and his wife Dewey
Weiss Kramer, who is from
Atlantic Beach, serve as spiri-
tual directors in the Diocese of
Atlanta
For first time-readers of


Merton's works, Kramer sug-
gested reading slowly "The
New Seeds of Contemplation."
He also recommended a col-
lection of Merton's poetry
titled "In the Dark before
Dawn" edited by Lynn Szabo.

Senators earn state playoff berth

Draft day


becomes


a national


holiday

s we approach the NFL
Draft, our minds sudden-
y switch from baseball,
NBA playoffs and NHL playoffs
to where they were all winter
long football.
Thankfully there are these
two days in the middle of the
year where we can actually
think about quarterbacks and
4-3 defenses. We start planning
days ahead which player our
hometown team should take,
what type of players we need
and, just like when they're
playing the game, we end up
criticizing the team brass for
making a wrong move.
The teams are in the same
situation. Who do we take that
can help us the best? What
other positions can we fill?
How do we avoid selecting the
next Ryan Leaf?
Besides, what's more fun
than watching a couple of
four-year grads and a bunch of
college dropouts win one of
the 32 mini-lotteries that we
call the first round?
Welcome to the NFL Draft.
As Jaguar interest rises for
two days starting tomorrow, it's
time to look.at what the)' need,
to make next season better
then the last. I look at lastsea-
son and see two things: a good
D and a lack of leadership.
Jacksonville has a solid
defense, a tremendous running
game with two proven backs
and a coach that makes his
players happy, unlike that old
one we used to have here.
I think we have some solid
quarterbacks in Byron Leftwich
and David Garrard, but one
seems to lack leadership and
the other experience. Unfortu-
nately for the Jags, who pick
17th in the first round, there
won't be any signal-callers
worth picking by that time.
Heck, Sports Illustrated has
only two quarterbacks in the
first round of its mock draft
this week with JaMarcus Russell
and Brady Quinn going first
and third. Whatever happened
to that Buckeye who won the
Heisman?
The wide receiver position is
one I think we need to im-
prove the most. Reggie
Williams has talent, but con-
sidering he dances like he's at
the Ocean Club after a two-
yard gain, I'm afraid we may
lose him for the season if he
scores from 30 yards out.
My buddy and I were tossing
a football one day when he
hollered "Matt Jones!" after I
dropped the ball, something
the receiver with the same
name did a few times last sea-
son. Like Williams, Jones has
potential, but we've been wait-
ing long enough to see it.
For the Jags, a receiver, if pos-
sible, might be a wise choice.
After all, just about any pick
taken could be better than R.
Jay Soward, whom Yahoo! list-
ed as one of the worst first-
round picks of all time.
Too bad Georgia Tech receiv-
er Calvin Johnson will be gone
- he's simply too talented.
Chances are the Jags will
grab a receiver or two later in
the draft, which leaves some
defensive talent left.
A couple of defensive ends in
Adam Carriker, Jamaal Ander-
son and former Gator Jarvis
Moss should be available for
the Jags. Another Gator, Reggie
Nelson, would be a popular
pick with the fans at safety.
But whomever the Jags wind
up with, you can bet coach
Jack Del Rio will make a wise
choice. And if you happen to
read this coach, should you
need another kicker, feel free to
give me a call. I blow some
minds out in front of the stadi-
um on game days in that little
field goal challenge.


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Pardon Alex Tiemeier for not
taking a leisurely stroll around
the diamond Wednesday
night, following his game-win-
ning home run against
Sandalwood.
The senior center fielder for
Fletcher High bats in the No. 6
hole and, as such, is not con-
sidered a long-ball threat.
"He's a gapper. And because
of his wheels, he can leg out a
few doubles," Senator skipper
Kevin Brown said about
Tiemeier, whose two-run
homer in the fifth inning
against the visiting Saints
broke a 1-1 tie and paced host
Fletcher to a 5-1 victory in the
District 1-6A semifinals.
The win clinched a state
playoff berth for the third-seed-
ed Senators (19-7), who faced
top-seeded Gainesville
Buchholz (19-7) Thursday
night for the district champi-
onship.
"We've seen his power in
practice," added Brown, whose
team was batting a collective
.345 coming into the game.
"He's been crushing it in BP
the past two days."
Tiemeier, who has flirted
with .300 all season, got the
money pitch he was waiting
for: a fastball up with the
count at 2-0.
"I was looking for something
to drive and move the runner
over," said Tiemeier, whose
first career dinger cleared the
fence in right-center scoring
senior Tyler Bounds from first
base.
"I can't believe it happened.
It's my first home run in high
school. I was waiting for the
ball to come down, but it just
kept going."
The homer spoiled a perfect-
ly good outing for Sandalwood
starter Rafe Riege (6-5), a senior
who had struck out six
Senators to that point, and
who had retired the side in
order in the third and fourth
innings.
"I give Rafe a lot of credit.

run support," said Sandalw0ood
"headi coaci'Billy Bell.
"With Fletcher's lineup, you
can't put anybody on unless
you have an open base. And
they don't miss too many 2-0
fastballs.
S"I think the big thing
tonight was execution. Fletcher
executed better than we did.
We could not hit the ball
where they weren't."
The Senators played superb
defense behind starter Scott
Sitz (6-3), a sophomore who

Fletcher's senior-laden infield
turned double plays in the fifth
and sixth and didn't allow a
base runner past second after
the second inning.
Sitz was simply at his best
from the third inning on. The
right-hander retired the side in
Order in the third, fourth and
seventh, and fanned Saints
shortstop Derek Watson (2 for
3) for the final out.
"I think he had his best
velocity tonight," said Brown,


who calls pitches for Fletcher.
"Wewere spotting the four-
seam fastball on the outside.
We came inside one time and
they hurt us with a double and
we didn't go inside again. The
kids have a lot of faith in
him."
Added junior catcher Cory
Franklin: "That's probably the
best I've seen Scott throw all
year. He was bringing it."
Brown said Sitz threw a
curve/slider ahead in the count
and rated his fastball in the
mid to high 80s, despite the
wind blowing out.

single.
Fletcher senior Kevin Lehane

one-hopped to the fence to

The Senators scored two

the seventh to seal the win,

"The top of the order strug-
gled early," said Franklin, who
leads Fletcher in hitting and
runs batted in.
"I just knew that if I got the
ball in play, somehow we were
going to score."
Fletcher's is deadly all down
the lineup, and Tiemeier
proved it once again


Wednesday with a key ore-out
hit in his third and final at-bat.
"Sean [Brown] has done it;
B.J. [Chandler] has done it. And
now Tiemeier has done it," said
Brown.
"The key to it is being
patient and working the count
in your favor."
"Everyone seems to step up
at the right moment, and it just
happened to be my night,"
added Tiemeier, a first-year
starter who touched them all
Wednesday night.
"Fletcher made all the plays,"
said Bell. "That's what it takes
to make it to the next level."
Notes: Fletcher needed a win

Tuesday at.Frank Hoye Field.
A loss sends the Senators on
the road to either Flagler Palm
Coast (20-5) or defending
District 2 champ DeLand (22-
7). Fletcher last won a district
title in 1995 under head coach
Wilton Coffey. Thanks to
Harrison Sweeney, an outfielder
on the '95 squad, for remind-
ing us. Fletcher fell to DeLand
1-0 in the 6A regional quarterfi-
nals last year.

The fewer the better?


s it better to have fewer races'

loads of races even if some of
them are poorly attended?
I have often thought that the
former plan would be best: Fewer
races but of high quality and plen-
ty of people on hand to enjoy
.them. Of course, not everyone
would agree.
The older, more popular races
seem to only get bigger and some
of the lesser known, new races

have to wonder why people both-

expense of organizing them.
But nothing seems to deter peo-

the summer doldrums two more $7

Heart disease in, still No. 1 killer


If you are a Florida Gator,
which I am not, the last 12
months have been unbe-
lievable for you. Twice you
have won the national title in
basketball, and you have fin-
ished at the top of the rank-
ings in football as well.
Well, another year end rank-
ing is out, this one from the
American Heart Association,
and it shows that heart disease
is still the nation's top killer.
Statistics released by the
American Heart Association
show that heart disease -
including high blood pressure,
heart attack, angina, conges-
tive heart failure, stroke, and
congenital heart defects -
killed more Americans than
any other cause.
While most people think of
heart disease as a man's prob-
lem, you should realize that
women are also significantly
affected. Last year, there were
approximately 500,000 female
deaths attributable to heart
disease.
In fact, cardiovascular dis-
ease claims more women's
lives annually than the next
16 causes of death combined
- including all forms of can-
cer.
Smoking is the most preva-
lent and preventable risk fac-
tor for cardiovascular disease
in women younger than 45. If
a woman smokes and takes

oral contraceptives, her risk of
cardiovascular-related death
increases nearly 40 percent.
Other major causes of death
were cancer, accidents,
Alzheimer's disease, and HIV.
For more information on
heart disease, look up the
American Heart Association's
website at www.american-
heart.org.
Exercise in Kids
Wards off Illness
Kids who get regular exercise
have been shown to be health-
ier, and less likely to get sick
from illness and infections,
according to a report pub-
lished in the Journal of
Applied Physiology.
The study relates daily exer-
cise with a boost in a child's


immune system. This was
shown to reduce the rates of
common infections, such as
the common cold.
Exercise has also been
shown to combat obesity and
stress, two factors that are
known to suppress the body's
immune system.
Speaking the Lingo
Being in medical school for
four years, you have plenty of
time to learn all the medical
lingo of your craft. Patients are
not so fortunate, so you can-
not expect that they will pro-
nounce all the medical terms
properly.
Patients will often pro-
nounce "rotator cuff", as "rota-
tor cup" or "prostate" as "pros-
trate."
I once heard someone to
'refer to "spinal meningitis" as
"smiling mighty Jesus."
This 'week I heard another
that brought a smile to. my
face. A gentleman came to see
me about his knee. Before .
going in to see him, I took a
look at the historical informa-
tion he had filled out, and I
had reviewed his MRI which
showed he had a medial
meniscus tear, which we com-
monly refer to simply as a car-
tilage tear.
It also appears that the
patient had some knowledge
of his injury, for after I intro-
duced myself and asked him


what was bothering him he
told me that he had a torn
"medieval menischievous."
Perhaps he tore it jousting.

FROM STAFF
Though the Opening Day of the Beaches is
no longer an official festival, the sandcastle
contest on Saturday and the Parade on Sunday
are still highlights of a longtime tradition that
dates back to the days when the Beaches were
a largely seasonal community with few year-
round residents.
This year, in conjunction with the Opening,
another tradition, the American Red Cross
Volunteer Lifesaving Corps (ARCVLSC) will
hold an open house for the community.
In its historic station house at the foot of
Beach Boulevard, the Corps will host a variety
of activities, including inspections and demon-

stations to showcase readiness for the 2007
season. Activities will begin at 10 a.m.
The Florida / Georgia Blood Alliance will
also be having a blood drive during the open
house. All donors will be given a T- shirt for
their donations.
Hot dogs, hamburgers, and soft drinks will
be available at lunch time as long as supplies
last.
While at the station, visitors may pick up
free copies of the Corps' 2007 Ocean Safety
and Jacksonville Beach Recreation
Brochures, as well as information on the
Junior Lifeguard summer camps. For further
information call 249-9141.


Jesse a fixture

on parade day

by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
"Flamboyant" is a term that's been used
to describe Jesse Moses Keene, Jr., long-
time drum major of the Morocco Temple
Oriental Band. Keene, who has "strutted
his stuff" at the head of the Shriners band
in 48 Opening of the Beaches parades,
will be out front again April 29.
"I hope to make 50," he said of.his
impending 49th appearance.
Keene emphasized Shriners march to
raise money to support their 21 crippled
children's hospitals and three burn cen-
ters.
"That is our sole purpose in parading,"
he said.
Keene, who started leading the band in
1959, almost didn't make it past 2002.
when he was burned in a gasoline explo-
sion Oct. 30 of that year.
"I was,working on a lawnmower, fool-
ishly pouring gas in the carburetor when
it was running. It backfired and set the
can on fire. In a panic I threw the, can and
it sprayed on my chest. I fell on the
ground and smothered it out. I was in
shock, didn't feel any pain. I pulled out
my cellphone to dial 911. My %-ife came
running out and said, 'I heard you.
They'll be here in four minutes.'"
Keene's arms, chest, head, eyes and ears
were burned.
"IThank God for the Burn Center in
Gainesville. They told my daughter
nobody over 60 could survive. I was in a
morphine coma 96 days."
The accident didn't stop Keene from
returning to his Shriners band. His only'
concession to the scars the accident
caused is that these days the 77-year-old
wears a shirt while leading.
"That was the one thing I looked for-
ward to. I wanted to come back to the
Beaches and do it again."

his navel, leads Shriners in a past,

Summer annuals more expensive this spring


I am becoming quite con-
cerned about the incredible
lack of rainfall and how it
will affect everyone this year.
Master Gardeners are being
reminded about the type of
advice we should give to
homeowners regarding such
topics as fertilizer recommen-
dations, drought tolerant
plants, unusual critters, and
the list goes on and on.
The recent fires in Georgia
and Putnam County are
instant reminders of what the
lack of rain will do, but there
are many long term ramifica-
tions that we will see if this
pattern continues.
I have covered many topics
over the past two months, but
today I will keep my com-
ments focused on this lack of
rain and what the homeowner
should be doing about it now.
I have also been made
acutely aware of a few critters
that do not typically show
their faces as much as they
have been doing now, and my
guess is that it has something
to do with the dryness.
Just this week I have seen
more alligators sunning them-
selves in retention ponds
around busy office parks, resi-
dences where children and
pets play, and in their natural,
untouched habitat. This is the
time of year to see them, and
it is also their mating season;
so generally this shouldn't be
such a big deal.
The gators I've seen are all
about 6 feet in length, and
that is a guess from a distance.
Perhaps it is because the water
level has slid lower that we
see more of them, in these
ponds.
Snakes of all kinds, poison-
ous or not, short or long, mot-
tled or brightly colored will be
out on a sunny day in their
territory doing whatever they
normally do. So if you do not
want to encounter them, stick
to your own designated terri-
tory. This includes sand dunes
and river banks, construction
sites and folk festivals, ham-
mocks and bluffs, golf courses
and springs, and yes, even
your own backyard especially
if it backs up to a body of
water, and especially if there
are plants growing there as I
have under a golf cart bridge.
A conglomeration of shrubs
is also a great hiding place for
them and they'll even hide in
mulched beds. If you are inm'a,
snake's, territory and it is,:
springtime, you need to know
what you are doing and not

be oblivious.
The dryness has helped to
bring them out. The lack of
rain also is forcing us to make
some early decisions about
whatever we had wanted to
plant, be it annuals, shrubs,
trees, containers, raised veg-
etable beds, etc.
My advice to you now since
we are severely lacking of rain,
is to get into the ground or
into a container only plants
that can handle the summer
heat. Get them in now so
they can get established
before more stress factors hit
them.
The word, "established"
drives me nuts because it is so
nebulous.
However, it is very "com-
mon sense", which even
though grammatically incor-
rect, makes it easier .to under-
stand. In order for any plant
to become established it must
be planted properly in the
right soil, planted in the cor-
rect light conditions that it
needs, and then watered at
soil level daily, sometimes sev-
eral times a day.
It is best if this watering is
done by a hose that you hold
or a watering can. A soaker
hose is wonderful as is micro-
irrigation if you have either of
these; an arcing sprinkler is
fine if you monitor it.
This watering may take a
few weeks or a few months,
depending on Mother Nature,
the health of the plant to
begin with, and the way you
planted it. It is considered
"established" when it shows
signs of new growth, is firmly
rooted in the ground or soil so
you cannot pull it out easily,
and seems to take on its own
form.
During this "established"
period do not etitilize, USeany
insecticide or fungicide, and
absolutely no weed killers


close to it.
The lack of rain effects the
quantity of plants the growers
have available, and therefore,
the price. Something as com-
mon as coleus, a great sum-
mer annual, might be more
expensive this year than last.
Decide what you want,
selecting only perhaps three
varieties of annuals rather
than 10 that you've used in
years past, buy them the day
they are delivered to your
nursery (usually they'll be the
healthiest then), and plant
them ASAP.
A word of caution: a plant
that is considered "drought
tolerant" is not so until it has
become "established", and for
an annual that might be only
a few weeks, but for a shrub or
tree, it could be a year or
more.
If you fertilize your lawn,
do so in the early morning
before the heat. Water the
product in as directed. Do not
let your lawn company tech
use any liquid product during
the heat of the day or you will
probably have leaf burn and
grass burn, especially if you
have no tree canopy. Exercise
caution and fertilize less,
rather than risk ruining your
lawn and landscape.
Lastly, if you are new to the


Area or to your home and
yard, go slowly and learn
about growing things here. Go
to some of the classes being
held at libraries or garden
clubs. There are many to be
taken advantage of and you
will learn a lot.
Events this weekend include
the Mandarin Garden Club
Plant Sale and Demo Garden
Walk from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
2892 Loretto Road. A
Butterfly Festival is held at
Tree Hill Nature Center, 7152
Lone Star Road. from noon to
5 p.m.

PV Cultural Center names its new director


W welcome to Cindy
Stoddart who has
been appointed the
new executive director of the
Cultural Center at Ponte
Vedra and who will take on
her new responsibilities in
May.
She will be responsible for
overseeing all aspects of the
Cultural Center's day-to-day
operations including procure-
ment of grants, membership
benefits, corporate and pri-
vate fundraising, strategic
partnerships and the devel-
opment of special events.

and direct the usage of the
Center's gallery, art and
music rooms and ballroom.
Prior to this new position,
Stoddart served as director of
government and community
affairs for Comcast.
She also served as execu-
tive director of ArtServe,

bership and increased corpo-
rate underwriting and special

creating these outstanding
works.

to create her floor to ceiling
paintings. Almost all of the
works include pencils and/or
paint brushes attached to the
canvas as well as poetry.
Most works are without
subject matter. The canvasses
are of many sizes in this
exhibit with one dominate
color and very little of a con-
trasting color.
Also included in the exhib-
it are small constructions or
sculptures such a chairs made
from pencils and paint brush-
es. See this unusual exhibit

'Meet the Robinsons' a charmer


"Meet the Robinsons" in
theaters now is a cartoon
about time travel in which a
man's happy future will be
ruined unless he can fix his
tortured past.
That's ironic, because the
first half of the movie is
complicated and frantic, and
then it turns into the
charmer it should'have been
all along.
The hero is a teenage
orphan/inventor named
Lewis, and the movie labors
mightily to create pathos for
this kid.
The.movie's prologue
shows a helpless woman
leaving her infant on the
steps of an orphanage a
trarjerke( plot device right
Sti of Chailie Chaplin's "The
I.ra' t19211, Ihough the
movie appears to show it
happening right now. Do
woman still leave babies on
doorsteps and get away with
it?
Then,we see Lewis going

fun dinner at home is elabo-
rate food fights and listening
to frogs do bad Frank Sinatra
imitations. (Hey, I don't
write this stuff, I just review
it.) And Wilbur turns out to
be pursued by a time-travel-
ing villain with:- I swear '-
a top hat and a curly.'mus-iU
tache. The moviemakers
should have just gone all the
way and printed "Snidely
Whiplash" on the guy's back.
All of this is supposed to
be charming, but it just
reminded me of late-period
Marx Brothers movies in
which people cavorted
around on-screen to hide the
lack of hilarity in the.script.
The funny thing is, once
the movie's past/future con-
flict gets clearly established,
the story actually turns out
to be rather touching on its
own, rather than giving us a
bunch of exposition telling


us why we "should" be
touched. But, like time travel
itself, it takes a mighty long
time for the movie to get to
its planned destination.
I think the reason this
movie is so laborious is that
it's based on a children's
book by William Joyce. If
that name doesn't ring a bell,
you might recall his Disney
Channel TV series "Rolie
Polie Olie" another Joyce
creation whose.futuristic,
gleaming sci-fi surface far
outshown its piddling
attempts at storylines.
Luckily, the movie has
other charms to carry the
viewer through its rickety
first half. The visuals and
elaborate sight gags really are
something tof see. And the
movieis-score is:another-fine
creation by Danny Elfman
("The Nightmare Before
Christmas").
So the movie ends up
being fairly worthwhile,
though younger viewers
might have to be talked into
staying in their seats for a
while. (The movie clocks in
at 102 minutes, rather
lengthy for such a wispy car-
toon.) It's a pity that that kid
from the future couldn't trav-
el to the movie's first half
and make it as perfect as the
second.
"Meet the Robinsons" is
rated G.

Dirty Dancing coming to big screen


NOTE: To celebrate its 20th
anniversary, "Dirty Dancing" will
be shown on May 1 and 2 at 330
theaters, including the Regal
Beach 18. The 7:30 screenings
include a re-mastered print of the
movie and a 30-minute bonus
feature. For more information,
visit. the website
dirtydancing.com.

by STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
T o enjoy "Dirty Dancing,"
you must be willing to
swallow whole that, in
1963:
A doctor would give $250
(about $1,800 in today's dol-
lars) to his teenage daugh-
ter, simply as a favor to her.
A group of teenagers, whose
dances are (to put it politely)
uncensored, will eventually be
accepted by a bunch of old
fogies who haven't even heard
of The Beatles.
"Dirty Dancing's" filler
between the dance numbers -
sorry, its story concerns a
17-year-old girl, improbably
called "Baby" (Jennifer Grey).
Baby and her family are spend-
ing the summer at a mountain
resort where people dance the
merengue and other innocu-
ous steps. But one night, Baby
goes exploring behind the.
resort and finds a shack where
the day workers are indulging
in- well, check out the
movie's title.
The resort's (and the shack's)
lead dancer, Johnny Castle
(Patrick Swayze), is a kid from
the wrong side of the tracks.
Baby obtains the aforemen-
tioned $250 to help Johnny
and a female friend out of,
shall we say, a medical crisis.


Baby's doctor-father (the
late, great Jerry Orbach) finds
out what his money went for
and immediately draws the
wrong conclusion about
Johnny ^ whom Doc thinks
came to know the female
friend, er, personally. But we
know Johnny's an okay guy,
don't we, fellow campers?
Lest I sound old and cynical,
let me say that I saw the movie
in 1987, and I couldn't buy a
lot of it then either. I realize
now that "DD" is the latter-day
equivalent of Judy and Mickey
using the old barn to put on a
show. Here it's "Hey, gang!
Let's dance like we're doing
the wild thing and convince
that old doctor that it doesn't
reflect our real personalities!"
On those terms, the movie is
fairly enjoyable. Old-schoolers
can appreciate the solid work
from old pros like Orbach and
Jack Weston as Max, the
stodgy resort owner. (It's a sad
comment on me, I know,
when Max is the character
with whom I most identify.)
Everyone else can appreciate
the admittedly superb foot-
work of Swayze and Grey.
(Cynic that I am, I'm still
charmed by that montage of
Baby awkwardly practicing her
steps at the pond bridge.) If
you're an old codger like me,
just think of it as "Dancing
with the Stars" with, shall we
say, a little more plot and a
whole lot more thrust. For the
younger set, the movie seems
to have the same fascination
as Grease, attracting repeat
viewing.
"Dirty Dancing" is rated PG-
13 for adult languages and sit-
uations, including well, you
know.


The event raises more than
$3,000 annually for
Jacksonville junior golf.

Navy Appreciation Day:
Members of The Plantation at
Ponte Vedra play host to more
than 70 servicemen and
women from Naval Station
Mayport and NAS Jacksonville.
The day of golf begins with
breakfast at 7:30 a.m., followed
by a 9 a.m. shotgun start. The
event, funded by donations
from Plantation members and
chaired by D-Day survivor Jim
Gaff, culminates with a steak
cookout at The Plantation
House, followed by awards and
prizes for the participants. The
Plantation inaugurated Navy
Appreciation Day in 2003 as an
annual event to say thank you
to personnel serving in the War
on Terror.
No Dough Dinner: The next
No Dough Dinner at the
Mayport USO will be served
from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. It's a no-
charge meal.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader











at Irish cultural festival




Pub favorites will entertain outdoors


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Musicians and artists from
across the country will join
together this weekend to cel-
ebrate the culture and tradi-
tion of Ireland at Jax Irish
Fest 2007.
The brainchild of Keith
Doherty, general manager of
Lynch's Irish Pub in
Jacksonville Beach, the festi-
val will showcase the coun-
try's heritage from food and
drink to dance.
Music, Doherty said, will
feature prominently at the
event because it remains an
integral part of the Irish cul-
ture itself.
Irish music wraps its arms
tightly around its folk roots
while embracing the harder
modernized punk sounds
born to 70's Britain.
Doherty said the festival
will represent the broad spec-
trum of Irish music with an
authentic soundtrack ranging
from traditional instrumen-


tals to punk rock fusion with
an equally diverse lineup of
artists including headliners
Flogging Molly and local
players Spade McQuade, Jana
Light and Michael Funge.
"They are coming from all
over. We are catering to every
aspect of Irish culture across
the board. We've got bands
from Ireland, Canada,
Tennessee, California, New
York, Boston and local artists.
They will all bring different
forms of Irish music." he
said.
"Obviously Irish music has
transcended over time, espe-
cially with the American


influence. A lot of it is more
high tempo and has a rock
feel to it like Flogging Molly
and the Screaming Orphans.
It's a fusion between Irish jigs
and punk rock."
Doherty said bands-like
Henri's Notion out of
Tennessee will bring the
more traditional folk sounds
of the old Irish melodies with
pipes, fiddle and penny whis-
tle.
"All of the old folk tunes
will be well represented," he
said.
John Maze, a professor at
the University of Florida in
Gainesville, is also a founder
of the traditional Irish band
An Truir a Gaelic term
meaning "three people."
"They are excellent," he
said. "A lot of the older peo-
ple will be into that."
Maze, one of the leading
American proponents of the
uilleann pipes, is also the
founder and director of the
Florida Tion61, one of the

largest series of workshops
and concerts focusing on
Irish traditional music in the
country.
To appease the younger
crowds, Doherty said bands
like Rathkeltair offer more up
tempo performances while
still preserving the traditional
feel.
Searson a Partridge
Family-like outfit out of
Canada "are absolutely
fantastic," Doherty said.
"They do a lot of original
tunes, kind of upbeat as
well," he said.
Spade McQuade like
Doherty, an Irish transplant
now living at the Beaches -
performs at such spots as the
Fly's Tie, Fionn MacCool's
and Lynch's Irish Pubs.
McQuade moved to the
area in 1997 from Belfast,
where he regularly performed
at a week-long summer festi-
val in the western portion of
the city.


He said he is excited about
participating in the city's first
Irish festival.
Doherty said he hopes fes-
tival patrons will embrace the
event and allow it flourish
and grow over the next three
or four years and eventually
"get bands like The Corrs and
Van Morrison or maybe U2
to come play."
That, he said, is about as
long as it will take for him to
be able to relax and enjoy
himself in the midst of the
exhaustive planning it takes
to put an event of this mag-
nitude together.
"The main thing that is
going to make this work is
getting people to come. The
whole idea is to build this
up," Doherty said. "We are
starting off as a one-day
event this year because there
is that uncertainty. We don't
know how many people are
going to show up."
In time, he hopes the festi-


val will grow to be a signa-
ture event for the Irish com-
munity to come together
and celebrate their heritage,
he said.
"In a way, America has
been the only country where
we have really been accepted
outside of our own home-
land. That's why I'm proud
to be part of Florida and on a
greater scheme the United
States. This country is the
only place where we've been
able to settle and prosper."
The festival is just the
beginning. He plans to even-
tually incorporate an annual
St. Patrick's Day parade.
Shuttle service will be pro-
vided by Short Bus Jax start-
ing at 10:30 a.m. and leaving
from Lynch's Irish Pub. The
bus will run back and forth
about every 40 minutes.

$15 in advance, $20 at the
gate.

Ceiling fan can save money


Dear Jane,
Any ideas for do-it-yourself
projects to save me money this
summer? Last year my utility
bills were through the roof!
Claire M.
Dear Claire,
Yes! Installing a ceiling fan
is a great way to cut back on
your utility bills. It's a simple
do-it-yourself project and can
help you stay cooler in the
summer and warmer in the
winter. Plus, you will be help-
ing the Earth by reducing
your energy consumption.
Here's how to get started:
MATERIALS:

TOOLS
Ladder
Screwdriver
Tape measure
Wire cutter
SUPPLIES
Fan kit
Light bulbs
PROJECT STEPS
Step 1 When choosing a
ceiling fan, remember to con-
sider blade size, motor speed,
materials and lighting
options. Make sure the blade


SAFETY TIP: Never rely on
ceiling material alone to support
your fixture. Check the mount of
the electrical box to be sure it's
anchored firmly to a structural
support or rafter.

Strong Vineyards offer consistent quality


odney Strong Vineyards is
one of the handful of
venerable California pro-
ducers who make consistently
good wine year to year. Not
always do the wines distinguish
themselves from the herd, but
you can count on them to be
balanced, well made and a
good value.
'Rodney Strong founded the
Sonoma County winery in 1962
and sold it to Tom Klein in
1989. Mr. Strong recently died,
but the winery continues to
bear his name.
We recently met up with
winemaker Rick Sayre to taste
some of the current releases.
Rick has been with Rodney
Strong Vineyards since 1979
and learned under the direction
of legendary Beaulieu Vineyards
winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff.
With sales up 16 percent, Mr.
Sayre and Mr. Klein are pretty
satisfied that the old brand is
still successful. He says his wines
today are more fruit-driven.
Here are some of the wines we
enjoyed:


,,!" : --,..


TOM MARQUART
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'

Rodney Strong Charlotte's
Home Sauvignon Blanc 2005
($14). Austere with varietal
grapefruit characteristics and a
hint of tangerine and vanilla.
Simple but delicious wine for
spring consumption.
Rodney Strong Chalk Hill
Chardonnay 2005. ($20).
Generous aromas, silky "mouth-
feel", rich tropical fruit and
toasty oak flavors.
Rodney Strong Russian'


River Valley Pinot Noir 2005
($22). This simple but balanced
pinot noir is a bargain at this
price. Rose petal aromas, black
cherry fruit, spice and a touch
of vanilla.
Rodney Strong Reserve
Pinot Noir 2004 ($35). Soft and
generous "mouthfeel" with cola
and black cherry flavors. Full
body and capable of improving
in the cellar.
Rodney Strong Alexander
Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2003 ($25). This is a decent
medium-body cabernet for the
price, even if it was produced in
a mediocre vintage. Ripe plum
flavors, soft tannins and a hint,
of chocolate.
Rodney Strong Alexander's
Crown Cabernet Sauvignon
16 3 i.30). JUsing grapes horn
its m6stf prized vineyard, this
wine bursts with flavor and has
more body than the Alexander
Valley version. Rich, consistent
throughout and loaded with
blackberry fruit, spice and
herbs.
Rodney Strong Symmetry


2001 ($55). This red meritage is
a blend of cabemet sauvignon,
merlot and cabemet franc. Big,
full body wine with cassis and
blackberry flavors and a hint of
dark chocolate.
WINE TREND
An annual study commis-
sioned by organizers of the
VinExpo trade fair in Bordeaux
predicts that in the next five
years the United States will sur-
pass France as the world's largest
wine market.
French consumption is
declining while this market
continues to increase. The U.S.
drank a record 300 million cases
of wine in 2006.
Still, wine consumption in
this country is relatively low:
2.4 gallons per capital. That's sig-


nificantly lower than the
United Kingdom, Australia and
New Zealand.
WINE OF THE WEEK
Wild Horse Central Coast


Pinot Noir 2005 ($25). Soft
cherry fruit, mushroom and for-
est-floor flavors with a touch of
spice. Good wine to pit with
salmon or fowl.

Timely Tips

CELL PHONE DISASTER If your cell phone falls
into the toilet or sink and you act fast, you may be able
to save the phone. Pull the battery out ASAP. Then dry
the inside of the phone with a hair dryer. Put the bat-
tery back in to see if it works. You may have to get a
new battery, so take the phone to a service center to
check it out. Jack K.
BURNT POPCORN SMELL IN THE MICROWAVE -
To get rid of this stink, fill a large microwave-safe bowl
with one cup of.water and sprinkle in your favorite
spice like cinnamon, or add several drops of vanilla or
lemon extract. Bring to a boil. You must let it sit inside
for 10 to 15 minutes to cool down. Simply wipe the
walls down with paper towels. Leave the door open to
further air it out. Ethel P.

VINEGAR MAGIC Everyone knows about pouring
vinegar down the sink to freshen the smell, but don't
pour vinegar right out of the bottle. First, run the vine-
gar through the coffeepot to clean that, or do any of
the other many chores you do with vinegar, and THEN
run the USED vinegar down the sink. It works just as
well, and you save even more. Lucille W.
BURNT COFFEE CARAFE Don't ruin the carafe by
scrubbing with harsh cleansers. Add a few teaspoons of
salt and some crushed ice. Let it sit for a minute, then
swirl the mixture. Most of the burnt coffee should
come off; the rest will be loosened so that it will wipe'
out fairly easily. Marie C.

Shark attacks decline


FROM UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
Shark attacks edged up
slightly in 2006 but continued
an overall long-term decline as
overfishing and more cautious
swimmers helped take a bite
out of the aggressive encoun-
ters, new University of Florida
research finds.
The total number of shark
attacks worldwide increased
from 61 in 2005 to 62 in 2006
and the number of fatalities
remained stable at four, far
below the 79 attacks and 11
fatalities recorded in 2000, said
George Burgess, director of the
International Shark Attack File
housed at UF's Florida Museum
of Natural History.
"This was a nice dull year
and we love dull years because
it means there are fewer serious
attacks and fewer victims,"
Burgess said. "It's really quite
remarkable when you have
only four people a year die in
the mouth of a shark and puts'
in perspective how small shark
attack is as a phenomenon."
Fewer sharks are swarming
near the shore where humans
swim as larger numbers of
shark and other fish of prey are
killed each year, Burgess said.
At the same time, many Third
World countries are making
strides in improving medical
care and beach safety, while
many people are getting
smarter about where and when
to get into the water, he said.
"They're starting to see that
when they enter the sea,
they're engaging in a wilder-
ness experience as opposed to
entering the equivalent of a
backyard pool," he said.
As a result, the rate of attacks
has actually declined over the
years as human population has
increased, he said.
The number of attacks in the
United States, the world's
leader, dipped slightly from 40
in. 2005 to 38 in. 2006; well
below the 53 recorded in 2000,
he said.
As in past years, Florida was

23 attacks, Burgess said. This
was slightly higher than the 19
cases reported in 2005 but con-
siderably lower than the annu-
al average of 33 between 2000
and 2003, he said.
Elsewhere in the world,
Burgess tracked seven attacks
in Australia, four in South
Africa, three in Brazil, two in
the Bahamas and one each in
Fiji, Guam, Mexico, New
Zealand, Puerto Rico, La
Reunion, Spain and Tonga.
With globalization, not all

Shark Encounters:
SIn 1961 two boys horn Tennessee were at Jax Beach and
believed to have been drowned in a rip tide. Three days later,
one bov's body was found washed ashore south of Ponte Vedra.
It had two shark bites on it. It was later concluded that the bo\
had died from blood loss from pounds from a large shark 10-
feet or larger of unknown species. The other boy was never
found.
The only other documented attack in these waters occurred in
1913.

swimmer's actually getting bitten by a shark off any Florida
beach are astronomically low."

Burgess said. "The natives may

French 'tourist who decides
to go sailboarding there gets
grabbed by the tiger shark."
Surfers and windsurfers were
the most frequent victims in
2006, accounting for 26 of the
shark attacks, followed by
swimmers and waders, 21, and
divers and snorkelers, five.
Besides Florida's 23 attacks,
elsewhere in the United States
attacks numbered four in
South Carolina; three each in
Hawaii and Oregon; two in
California; and one each in
New Jersey, North Carolina
and Texas.

The sunscreen SPF rating is calculated by
comparing the amount of time needed to pro-

Avoid "peak" sunlight hours -- 10 a.m. until
4 p.m. -- when the sun's rays are the strongest.

Remember "No shadow...seek the

are at their strongest and you're likely
to sunburn.

and bland moisturizers or over-the-counter

Swimsuit

trends are

fresh,classic

by MEGHAN WELFARE
CONTRIBUTOR
Swimwear is a necessary part
of any Floridian's lifestyle. It is
the wardrobe staple for any
beach outing or summer party,
and the epitome of the laid
back Florida way of life.
For 2007, swimwear is more
important than ever, reinvent-
ing itself to stay fresh and new
in the consumer's eye, as well
as holding on to classic ele-
ments such as the cuts and cre-
ative inspiration which have
been the key to its success.
Following are the trends
you'll be seeing at the beach
and poolside this year.
Influence. The most surpris-
ing in 2007 is where the design
inspiration came from. This
year the media, celebrities, the
Internet, and realty TV are cre-
ating a huge impact on what
we wear and how we wear it.
According to "Swimsuits:
Trends and History," hit reality
shows such as Laguna Beach,
America's Next Top Model, and
Dr. 90210 have all made their
mark on the swimwear styles
and accessories for spring.
* *
Color & Patterns. Rich
vibrant jewel tones, nautical
inspiration, and metallics are
found in many of this years
most popular swimwear lines
such as Roxy, O'neill, Vix,
Vitamin A, and Raisins. Many
lines will feature bold and lus-
cious color pallets such as
emerald, sapphire; bronze, cop-
per, and chocolate. Patterns for
2007 will focus on classics such
as polka dots, animal print,
and mosaic images as accents.
Retro design is also big in 2007
swimwear most notably in the

Style. Bikinis, Bikinis,
Bikinis. According to
"Swimsuits: Trends and
History," The bikini has
become one of the most recog-
nizable swimsuit in summer
fashion," and this year is no
different. This year the cut and
shape of the bikinis will con-
tinue their long-established fig-
ure flattering cuts such as hal-
ter-tops, triangle tops, and ban-
deau tops. Those looking for a
bit more cover-up will find the
takini is back and better than
ever. For bottoms it's the popu-
lar side tie bottoms, scoop bot-
toms, and boy shorts.
* *
Accents. In 2007 accents are
what define a suit. Examples
include flirty ruffles, braiding,
jewels and metal embellish-
ments, fine beading, sexy lace
overlay, hand made crochet
and macram6, and exquisite
appliques. As well as unique
metal rings and keyhole
cutouts worked into the cre-


action of the suit to create an
added peek-a-boo effect.
* *
A little something extra.
2007 swimwear does not end
with the swimsuit since
swimwear isn't just for the
water nowadays. Accessories
are key to making your suit
look chic on the beach and on
the town. Look for strands of
beads draping the stomach and
hips, as well as gauzy free flow-
ing cover-ups and simple flirty
-sun dresses to throw over the
suit on the way to and from
the beach. Lastly, no summer
wardrobe would be complete
without a chic pair of sandals
and sunglasses to make it your
own.

Fit. No design, color, style or
accessory is as important as
getting a suit that fits.
* *
Though these trends are all
hot for 2007, the most impor-
tant trend to follow is to make
sure you feel comfortable and
confident in your swimsuit.

i. History of Lifesaving Corps spans nearly a century


I Test Saturday is culmination of weeks of training for guards


Swim Safe:


A color-coded flag system
warns beachgoers of marine
conditions:
Green favorable conditions
Purple/Blue Presence of
jelly fish, man-of-war or other
dangerous sea life
Yellow Possibility of rip cur-
rents
Red Severe rip currents
Double Red Extremely dan-
gerous conditions such as high
surf, lightning or severe rip cur-
rents. Swimmers should stay out
of the water.

Swimmers are advised to stay
close enough to shore to hear a
lifeguard's whistle, and to check
with lifeguards about ocean con-
ditions or swim alone.
Runouts
If caught in a runout, the
most important thing to
remember is to not panic. Let
the flow pull you out to sea and
once it has taken you out, calm-
ly swim with the current.parallel
to the beach until you have
removed yourself from the out-
ward flow; then swim toward
shore. Mind over matter will
save your life.
Jelly Fish...
While a jellyfish sting is
uncomfortable, a- man-of-war
sting can be dangerous. The
man-of-war has very long tenta-
cles and get far away. from it as
possible. Paralysis or shock may
occur in severe cases, making
medical attention imperative.
Go directly to a lifeguard if)you
are ever stung. .
Lightning
Never swim when lightening
or a storm is approaching the
area. Get out of the water imme-
diately!


by KELLIE CONBOY
CONTRIBUTOR
In 1912, when Jacksonville
Beach was still known as
Pablo Beach, a local nurse
drowned while swimming in
the ocean. In response to her
death and other drownings,
some local residents who were
strong swimmers got together
and volunteered their time on
Sunday to guard the beaches.
That was the start of the
Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard
Corps, officially known as the
American Red Cross
Volunteer Lifesaving Corps
which was chartered by the
American Red Cross in
1914.The corps has a storied
heritage. One member, Henry
Walters, invented the rescue
can in 1919. Today the tool is
used by lifeguards worldwide.
The current mayor of
Jacksonville Beach, Fland
Sharp, was captain of the
American Red Cross
Volunteer Lifesaving Corps in
1987.
Still today the ARCVLC
upholds a tradition almost
100 years old by volunteering
on Sunday and holidays to
guard the beaches.
"No other beach does that
in the United States," said past
Capt. Thomas Wright. "We're
very proud of that. People say,
'you do what? Why do you
volunteer? That's ridiculous.'
But why does anybody volun-
teer? You volunteer out of the
goodness of your heart."
In addition to the tradition
of volunteering, Jacksonville
Beach lifeguards wear singlets
on the days they volunteer
that are modeled after those
worn by the first members of
the ARCVLC. The singlets,
which are one-piece bathing
suits that look like the suits
worn by some wrestlers, have
evolved over the years, how-
ever. They were originally
made from wool, today they
are made of Lycra, a cooler,
more efficient material that
doesn't weigh swimmers
down in the water.
"It's part of our heritage. It's
what they wore, and we carry
on the tradition," Wright
explained.
A.new class of recruits will
join the ARCVLC during a
public initiation April 28, and
hey will volunteer with their
yellow lifeguards for their first
official day as lifesavers dur-
ing the Opening of the
Beaches April 29.
There are two recruit class-
es, the winter class begins the

first Sunday in February, and
the summer class begins the
Sunday after the Opening of
the Beaches. The winter
recruit class is 12-weeks long,
while the summer class is usu-
ally shorter, ending around
July 4, because there are fewer
recruits in the class and it can
be accelerated.
Wright said that the
ARCVLC recruit class is
another thing that sets
Jacksonville apart from other
beaches.
"There are beaches that I've
worked at or been to, their
recruit class is one or two days
long," he said. "It's basically a
tryout, you know, some guy
might have worked in San
Diego and he goes to Delray
Beach and does their little try-
out and gets hired on as a life-
guard. Here they go through a
12-week course and 'they
become \ery close, they form
a very unique bond, and the
friendships last a lifetime."
The recruit process is a
demanding one, and, accord-
ing Instructor Duncan
Campbell, only one-third of


the people who begin a
recruit class finish it to
become members of the
ARCVLC. The corps includes
men and women.
Recruit class is on Sundays
beginning at 9 a.m. and going
until 6 or 7 p.m. Recruits
begin their day with a work-
out in the pool, and, after
breaking for lunch, spend
about four hours in a class-
room learning about things
such as first aid, CPR, the
ARCVLC's bylaws, and other
things relating to their life-
guard training. The day ends
with one to two hours of
physical training on the
beach.
The day that recruits offi-
cially become members of the
ARCVLC is called Test
Saturday. It starts at 5 a.m.
with exams on everything
that the recruits learned dur-
ing trainirg.- After that tg -
recruits do their fihal run an
swim tests, and once they
have completed all of the
requirements to become a life-
guard their public initiation
begins.

Keene's wife Mary, his high
school sweetheart, died of can-
cer shortly after he was released
from the hospital.
Keene owns three thick scrap-
books that capture his exploits
as drum major of the Morocco
Temple Oriental Band. He and
the band have appeared in most
major North American cities,
and they'll be in Anaheim, CA.
the Fourth of July.
"I joined the band when it
was organized in 1957. Most
guys were in their 40s; I was in
my late 20s. I thought they were
old men," said Keene, a 32nd-
degree Mason. "I had to be a
Mason to get in the Shrine. So
after I became a Mason, I associ-
ated with good people. I joined
the Shrine when I was 22."
Keene said it was purely by
accident he became the drum
major.

Michelle Vining, friends of his
at Cinotti's Bakery in
Jacksonville Beach.
"I got into the band and
learned to play the Chinese
horn. The first couple years, we
had a drum major who just
walked with his hands on his
hips. He was kind of a dictator."
Keene became drum major


when the man resigned.
"They were trying to decide
who to get for drum major.
There was a guy about 7-foot-
tall. I recommended he do it.
My wife said, 'Why don't you
tell them you'll do it?' I said,
'You're crazy. I ain't about to get
out there and do that.' She said,
Tell them.' I whispered to one
guy, 'I'd take it.' So they gave it
to me."
Keene said he was shy when
he started.
"The first two years, I couldn't
look people in the eye. There
was a lady [whose husband was
a Shriner] who used to be a fan
dancer. She said, 'Jesse, you've
got what they want to see. Hold
your head up, throw your chest
out, look at them. You've got a
good tan, show your chest.' So I
thought, 'Well, I'll try it.'
"I took the shirt off, threw my
chest out, got out there and


said, 'Man, this is fun. I like
this.'"
Keene lived in a small town,
Newberry, until he was 16. His
nickname in Newberry was The
Sheik. "I came up to
Jacksonville, and I've become
the Sheik of the Shrine."
Keene, who was an. electri-
cian, wears a jewel in his navel
when he marches.
"We went to a national con-
vention in Toronto in .1963. I
thought, 'Here I am, 1,000 miles
from home. I need a gimmick.'
So I bought an oval-shaped ear-
ring and sewed a cheap dia-
mond in it, stuck it in my navel.
People liked it. It gave me a little
confidence when I came back to
town."
Keene proved to be a trend-
setter.
"After I started using it, all the
other drum majors in other
temples, they got jewelry."


"Recruits will ann
their public initiative


beachgoers. They make a big
scene so that everybody stares
at what's going on, and we'll
say 'hey, this is what we're
doing,'" said Campbell. "It's
eating food, a pillow fight in
the water, they grease a pole
and they sit on it and they
pillowfight, they eat an onion
and do the thing where they
spin around a baseball bat
and run back. It's all goofy
stuff."
Wright said that some peo-
ple who have seen the initia-
tion have been upset by it,
but that recruits aren't forced
to participate in the public
initiation to become members
of the ARCVLC.
"It upsets a lot of people,"
he said. "Like 'why do they
have to do that?' They don't
have to do it, they participate
because they want to do it. It's
fun, you know, they eat pies,
but everything in the pie is
.: edible. It just doesn't look
S pretty."
At the Opening of the
Beaches ceremony the new
recruits join their fellow life-
guards for an inspection of
the guard, and they will work

Sandcastle contest

by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER Anvtime you can build a tradition


The annual sandcastle contest in
Jacksonville Beach is a family tradition for the
Hionides family. Nadia Hionides, founder and
principal of the Foundation Academy and a
mother of' three, started participating in the
contest sponsored by The Beaches Leader and
the Jacksonville Recreation Department in
1988.
"Our first sand castle was supposed to be
Navy submarines," she laughs. "I did that one
with my kids but nobody could figure it out."
Her daughter, Maro Trendel, 26, is now mar-
ried and her children Madaline, 24, and Elias,
18, are grown but they still plan to take part in
the contest Saturday.
And over the years, the Hionides have come
a long way.
They've won a few times for pieces such as a
sand dog, and a hand over a fish. Last year
they placed third for depicting the LOVE
sculpture in Philadelphia. She said her most
memorable sculpture was two hands holding
up the world, but it cracked.
"It.was really wonderful and the crack to me


with your family it's a great thing."


Nodia Hionides
Sandostle builder


was like 'wow,' great symbolism," said
Hionides, who has also had students and fac-
ulty participate in the contest.
"We've learned a lot with our experience like
how not to let it fall apart."
Builders can't put anything in the piece that
wouldn't be found at the beach. A structure
may be used to form a design but must be
removed before judging.
Hionides doesn't want to give away any of
her family's sandcastle building secrets but she
would like to share her experience.
"It's a great family activity and a tradition in
our home," Hionides said. "Anytime you can
build a tradition with your family it's a great
thing."
