Beaches' oldest city turns 100

Tuesday will mark the 100th anniversary of
Jacksonville Beach's incorporation.
Originally the city was known as Pablo Beach,
but the name adopted in 1907 was changed in
1925 after residents voted to tout the city's prox-
imity to Jacksonville.
With family ties predating the city's centennial
anniversary, Jacksonville Beach Mayor Fland
Sharp knows about the history of city where he
grew up.
It is his tenure as the 26th mayor since the city
was incorporated that continues to surprise him.
"I learn something new every day," Sharp said.
The landscape is m different since Pablo Beach
was incorporated as its own municipality on May
22, 1907.

The railway that ran up and down what is now
Beach Boulevard was long ago replaced with
paved asphalt and cars traveling east and west in
four lanes. Currently work is ongoing to widen a
portion of the road to six lanes.
"The earliest aerial pictures I've seen show noth-
ing west of 3rd Street 3rd Street was not even
there," Sharp said. "It looked like a wasteland, just
brush and palmettos. Downtown was just a bunch
of buildings in that one area, that was it."
In the city's early days, a city marshall enforced
the law of the land and a town judge would
decide your fate before a captive audience in

Anger, angst evident

at community meeting

People on both sides of the
emotionally charged tran-
sient issue came together
Tuesday at a public forum to
discuss solving the homeless
problem at the Beaches.

Homeless at Beaches dellated

Solution ideas:

*Create an Oceanfront
Enhancement Area mod-
eled on Jax's Riverfront
Enhancement ordinance.

*Create a Case
Management System
using community service
officers, paid a third of a
policeman's salary, to be
on the street and coordi-
nate outreach services
countywide for needy.

* Focus on both prevention
and policing; use different
solutions for different prob-
lems those who need
help and those who
choose as lifestyle.

* Prosecute those trying
to be "pain in the butt"
who need prosecution.

*Secure grants to improve
design, e.g. better lights
+/or fewer bushes.

*Use ideas from
Memphis and Ft.
Lauderdale. Use posters
to advise calling a serv-
ice office on beggars.

* Erect old parking meters
and encourage public to
donate spare change to
meters, not beggars.

* Have social agencies
implement filters so
those who get help must
do something in return

A total of 160 homeless y
people were counted east of B
the Intracoastal Waterway on
Jan. 29, 2007 the annual
survey date.
Of the 8 homicides in Jacksonville Beach
since January, 2002, half involved transients as
either the victim, suspect or both.
Five out of 16 attempted murders involved
transients as either the victim, suspect or both.
Jacksonville Beach police arrested 10 tran-
sients a total of 667 times for misdemeanor
offenses. They were arrested 24 times for felony
A 2006-2007 criminal study showed a total
of 132 felony arrests involving transients.
Between Feb. 8 and May 18, Jacksonville
Beach police responded to 891 calls regarding
"suspicious persons" 435 of those calls
involved transients.

chat time

While Roosevelt had
fireside chats, an Atlantic
Beach Commissioner
plans to have neighbor-
hood chats.
Commissioner Mike
Borno announced at a
meeting Monday that he
wants to reinstate neigh-
borhood chat meetings
where citizens have the
opportunity to express
their concerns in an
informal setting.
However, some commis-
sioners said that the idea
would take up too much
staff time or could poten-
tially violate Florida's sun-
shine law.
"We don't need staff
involvement," Borno said,
explaining that only one
commissioner would meet
with citizens, therefore,
minutes would not have
to be taken and the state
Sunshine law would not
be violated.
Borno said that if other
commissioners did not
want to be involved, he
would take on the project
Other concerns were
raised regarding citizen
turnout. The Commission
hosted similar "chats" in
the past and there was a
consistently low turnout.
According to Mayor Don
Wolfson, at one of the
meetings, no citizens
However, Commissioner
Dezmond Waters said that
a commissioner is free to
meet with citizens and
even if turnout is low, it
could still impact some.
"The turnout is always
poor, but every so often
you'll get a person who is
affected," he said.
The meetings are antici-
pated to begin in July,
according to the city
clerk's office.

In 2006, BEAM prevented over 300 families
from being homeless.
The Beaches lost 800 affordable housing
units in one year, BEAM reports.
A survey conducted by Habitat for

The number of homeless people rose by 20

Jacksonville saw an 11 percent increase.

council chambers, Sharp recalled. Criminals were
housed in the city's own jail.
Prior to the age of television, Sharp said city pol-
itics and criminal proceedings provided amuse-
ment for the adults that they couldn't get on the
"It was real entertaining. They didn't have TV
so they went to court and council meetings," he
As strictly summer residents, Sharp's grandpar-
ents lived in the Riverside area during most of the
year, coming out to the beach on Memorial Day
and heading back to town on Labor Day.
His grandfather ran several businesses during
the years including Sharp's Drugstore and the
Beach Hotel which he operated from the 1920s
until the building was lost to a fire in 1945.
"He had slot machines which were legal then
because that's where the money was," Sharp said.
"He built the Mermaid which is now where the
Ocean Club is," Sharp said. "There was a penny
arcade, a restaurant and a hotel."
Ray Fisher, chairman of the city's Community
Redevelopment Agency, moved here in 1969 and
said the city had the atmosphere of a community
where families could stroll seaside safely.
Fisher took a seat on the planning board in
1971 at a time when city officials were developing
a concept plan for the city referred to as the "Holy

22,1907 was birth day of Pablo Beach, aka Jacksonville Beach

The ferris wheel on the Jacksonville Beach
boardwalk was damaged by Hurricane Dora in
That plan, he said, amounted to a board that
"said no to everything" and the fabric of the com-
munity continued to unravel into the 80's.
"Once it got dark, downtown was not a place
you would want to be," Fisher said.

Once a bustling entertainment mecca, the
boardwalk and much of downtown Jacksonville
Beach became not so friendly after dark, he said.
Boarded buildings, beer joints and less than
desirable characters replaced tfe bath houses and
amusement rides that once dotted the coastline,
keeping the residents at home and the tourists at
At that time, Fisher said officials learned of a
new redevelopment statute that offered funds to
communities in need of improvement.
"To do it, you had to declare something as
blighted. Our downtown was blighted for fairly
obvious reasons."
City officials embarked on an ambitious infra-
structure program with a hefty price tag of $3 mil-
lion, he said.
Today, Fisher said he is proud of the city's
accomplishments and considers the downtown
core a "nice mix" of the old and the new.
Gone are the trashy beer taverns and adult
entertainment joints that threatened the city's
character for decades.
The downtown entertainment district offers
dining, music and an outdoor amphitheater
showcasing everything from moonlight movies to
live jazz under the stars.
"We still have the old beach cottages and some
high rises that I think are a credit to the commu-
nity. We always need to be aware of the delicate
balance of things and look at it every day," Fisher

"It's a work in progress and it always will be.
The dynamic is always changing. If we don't have
change, we go backwards."
Said Sharp of the city's progress, "We are still
working on it."
No activities are planned to mark the inception
of the municipality, Sharp said, largely because he
and others were unaware of the date.

himself as formerly homeless
for six months, questioned how
long the community planned
to tolerate being accosted by
transients aggressively panhan-
dling citizens and visitors in
highly utilized public areas.
"I saw a woman trapped in
her car in the pier parking lot by
a homeless man. I stood ready,"
he said. "I wonder how many
people in this town are going to
let this go on."
Jacksonville Beach Police
Chief Bruce Thomason said the
city's law enforcement agency
takes a serious approach to the
lifestyle crimes such as panhan-
dling and drinking in public
perpetuated by some in the
homeless community.
"Our position as a police
department is going to be very
aggressive because of what
these behaviors can lead to," he
-said, noting that it is not the
responsibility of law enforce-
ment agencies to deal with drug
addiction and mental illness
that plague a large segment of
the transient population. He,
stressed that consuming alco-
hol causes a person to lose con-

Another resident also asked
why police in the surrounding
areas routinely drop off tran-
sients at the Mission House.
Others discussed the home-
less issue from a strictly human-
itarian standpoint, calling for a
significant increase in services
and permanent help for home-
less individuals and those at risk
of being homeless.

"The number ong cause of
homelessness is the loss of
affordable housing," said Cindy
Funkhouser, executive director
of the Beaches Emergency
Assistance Ministry.
"Families with children are
the fastest growing segment of
the homeless population
nationwide. Definitely here at
the Beaches."
Funkhouser said between
March and April, BEAM saw 16
new families in need of help at
the Beaches an average of
three to five a week.
"That is shocking. Those are
just the ones who made it to
BEAM," she said. "They are the
invisible homeless. They are the
ones sleeping in cars or doubled
and tripled up in people's hous-
es. They are not the ones that
you see out there at the pier."
Mission House executive
director Jan Flager agrees that
keeping people off the street is
critical but he urged people to
recognize that the homeless
problem cannot be solved with
a one size fits all solution.
"Prevention is, of course, the
key. That is one aspect of it but
there is still a crying need,"
Flager said.
"We do everything we can,
especially for the families,
because children will be taken
from their parents by the police
if they are found without a
place to live."
He said Mission House for
the last 10 years has offered
twice daily meals, clothing,
medical care and showers to
the homeless and works with
neighboring agencies to "care
for those who can't help them-
Despite the sometimes ran-
corous debate, everyone in
attendance agreed that the
homeless problem is not some-
thing that can be ignored or
arrested away.

The Leader's Opinion

Pablo Beach best name?

100 years. A centennial.
The city of Jacksonville Beach will mark both on
Tuesday. What began as a tiny city with many residents
living in tents on the sand has grown from a summer
community into a busy, year-round home to thousands.
Since its inception as a municipality, the city has
changed considerably. One of the
most obvious changes is the name. Is it time to

Beach. The change, approved by Vote on the
voters, was made to make it clear to question at
all that the city was close to www.beach-
Jacksonville and boast about the or
proximity. www.ponteve-
The name change, sadly, brought
a loss of identity. To this day, many
still refer to the seaside community,
albeit erroneously, as Jacksonville's Beach and cast us
forever in the shadow of a much larger neighbor.
Pablo Beach had panache and the name clearly
spelled out our independent status. It also had historical
significance, reflecting the Spanish heritage and the
nearby Pablo River. At 100 years old, perhaps it's time to
go back to our original name -Pablo Beach.

Dr. Wise's plan for inclusion flawed

1,500 ESE students in Duval

classrooms into inclusion class-

ninth grader with ADHD, and
we have tried inclusion on three
separate occasions with little
success. Students should have

County allowing out of control overdevelopment

To the editor:
I appreciate Mayor Don Wolfson's [column] on
Wednesday bringing the Moody Shipyard issues
forward. For those who missed his letter, I would
suggest you get a copy from the Atlantic Beach
City Hall and be informed about the issues. This
letter is public record. I completely agree with his
position in this matter and believe it is an issue
we cannot be apathetic about. Safety, welfare and
quality of life for those of us on this barrier island
are at stake.
The last time the Jacksonville county officials
decided to hear us was in 2000 when they seri-
ously tried tinkering with splitting up the
Beaches in redistricting. Only then with large
crowds and phone calls and emails were we final-
ly heard.
A delegation of Beach officials went in good
faith last Tuesday to have the Jacksonville City
Council (our county government) hear our con-
cerns for thousands of residents. Instead of dia-
logue from them, we saw arrogance, indifference
and a lack of concern for the Beaches' residents'
We had hoped the matter would be deferred
until these issues could be looked at. One has to
wonder if the Kernan Road overpass issue that

Aliases include -- Jax Beach and
Pablo Beach.

2 The French Huguenots led by
Captain Jean Ribault landed on the
First Coast in 1562, but it was the
Spanish who first settled the Jacksonville
Beach area, establishing missions from
Mayport to St. Augustine.

3 The Jacksonville Beaches area has
been inhabited since at least 1837
when Mayport was made a port, but
it was not until 1883 that the Jacksonville
and Atlantic Railroad established "Ruby
Beach" in modern-day Jacksonville
Beach. The settlement was renamed
"Pablo Beach" three years later after the
San Pablo River to the west that divides
the island from the mainland.

4Pablo Beach and was incorporated
as a town on May 22, 1907. The
name was changed to "Jacksonville
Beach" in 1925.

SJacksonville Beach is the largest
town of the three Beaches cities.

It is the eastern terminus of U.S.
Route 90, which ends at its intersec-
tion with State Road A1A. Locals
know U.S. 90 as Beach Boulevard.

According to the United States
7 Census Bureau, the city has a total
area of 22 miles, of which 7.7 miles
of it is land and 14.3 miles of it is

"I am a lupus survivor and if
lupus is my lemon, then my art-
work is my lemonade," said
artist and musician Nancy
"When God gives us a prob-
lem, he always gives us a way
out," she said.
"Nancy's Lemonade Stand,"
an exhibit of eighteen of
Asbell's paintings, is on display
at Bethel Gallery of Ponte Vedra
Presbyterian Church through
July 15.
Following a stroke ten years
ago and a subsequent diagnosis
of lupus Asbell said she had to
redirect her life.
A church music and worship
director for 14 years prior to her
stroke, Asbell had to relearn
how to play the piano.
Her ability to sing was also
greatly diminished, she said,
due to the effects of lupus, a
chronic "life threatening dis-
"I missed my past life yet

Lemonade Stand'

found joy in my new life," she
Since she had only a limited
ability to leave her home, Asbell
started a home-based piano stu-
dio. She now teaches 20 stu-
dents there.
She credits having to learn
how to play the piano again
with making her a more patient
and better piano teacher.
Asbell had also been a painter
throughout her childhood and
teen years. Her interest in paint-
ing was renewed after her
stroke. However, she also had to
relearn to how to paint.
From her home, Asbell can
paint scenes of orange groves
and marshes remembered from
her childhood. Her paintings
are also inspired by photographs
of Florida's parks and coastline
taken by family members.
"God has given me a chance
to paint," she said of the new
direction her life took ten years
She now paints from "sun-up
to sundown."

National Day ofPrayer

"I paint for God and not for
Nancy. When I paint for Nancy
everything goes wrong."
Asbell's paintings have been
shown in galleries throughout
the state. Many of her paintings
can be viewed on her website
"Nancy's Lemonade Stand" at
the Bethel Gallery is open for
viewing on Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and
on Sunday from 9 a.m. to
Asbell donates 10 percent
from the sale of her paintings to
the Florida Lupus Foundation.
The disease affects an estimat-
ed 1.5 million people in the U.S.
No new drugs have been devel-
oped to treat lupus in over thir-
ty years, she said.
Asbell said that she "spends a
lot of time looking at clouds"
and always sees a ray of light
shing through.
"Life is about making adjust-
ments for all of us.......There are
too many blessings in life to
give up."

BFAST season begins Saturday




from the



In addition to all the other
memorable firsts for last
Week's Players Champion-
ship, the event managed to
relegate Jaguars mini-camp to
a below-the-fold story. Pretty
impressive feat in this foot-
ball-crazed area.

Anyone else tired of the
Brett Favre act? He's retir-
ing, he's not retiring. He
demands a trade, then later
claims he didn't. He'll skip
Packers mini-camp to
attend a graduation, on sec-
ond thought he'll be there.
01' No. 5 has become more
moody than a diva with a
toothache. Maybe Favre
thinks he's a wide receiver.

Last weekend's "fight to
save boxing" didn't. Lots of
people forked over $54.95 to
watch the Oscar de la Hoya-
Floyd Mayweather Jr. bout,
but afterward there was no
immediate cry for a rematch
nor the perception of rekin-
dled interest in the sport.-It's
probably a sad commentary
on society, but fight fans are
more attracted to mixed mar-
tial arts bouts, like the UFC,
which offer the potential for
more blood and devastating

Tiger Woods revealed
after The Players that he
has had a second lasik eye
surgery. He underwent the
procedure in 1999 after
first sending his agent to.
make sure it was safe -
because he found contact
lenses too cumbersome.
"My vision started slip-
ping," said Tiger, who had
his second surgery the
Monday after the Masters.
"I was getting headaches
from squinting all the
time." Just as in 1999,
Woods won his first tourna-
ment after the procedure
when he captured the
Wachovia Championship by
two shots.

Interesting historical foot-
note to Barry Bonds' quest to
eclipse Hank Aaron as base-
ball's all-time home run
leader: Because he's such a
polarizing figure, the Giants
are trying to set things up so
Bonds hits his record-tying
755th and record-breaking
756th homers in San
Francisco. They correctly
assume he'll be booed any-
where else. The Braves tried a
similar thing in 1974 when
Aaron was on the verge of
surpassing Babe Ruth, but
then commissioner Bowie
Kuhn ordered Atlanta to play
it straight. It all worked out
because Aaron supplanted
Ruth in front of the home
fans at Atlanta's Fulton
County Stadium.

Seems the NFL's populari-
ty isn't merely confined to
our shores. The first 40,000
tickets for the Oct. 28 game
between the New York
Giants and Miami Dolphins
at London's new Wembley
Stadium sold out in 90 min-
utes. The first batch of tick-
ets went to fans in Britain
and other parts of Europe.
About 10,000 tickets will go
on sale next week for U.S.
fans who wish to make the
trip. Officials expect a com-
plete sellout of the 90,000-
seat stadium.

Best bet for the weekend:
The first of this season's
BFAST sprint triathlons
Saturday morning at Mickler's
Landing in Ponte Vedra


The first of this season's
three Beaches FineArts Series
sprint triathlons is slated for
Saturday, with about 350 par-
ticipants already registered.
It's the 21st anniversary sea-
son for the BFAST series, which
consists of a quarter-mile ocean
swim, an 10-mile bicycle race
and a three-mile run. The
triathlons begin and end at
Mickler's Landing in Ponte
Vedra Beach.
The course area includes
Ponte Vedra Blvd., Corona
Road, SR 210 and A1A at the
crossing points and officials
have issued a traffic warning
for the area for early Saturday
morning as participates make
their way through the course.
Organizers have changed the
bicycle route for the 2007 sea-
son. This year's bike ride has
been shortened from 11.5
miles to 10 and cyclists will
head north on A1A from
Mickler Road to Solana Road
and return south along Ponte
Vedra Boulevard.
There are still spaces avail-
able for athletes to participate
in Saturday's event. Those
interested may register during
packet pick-up on May 18
from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. at
American Bicycle Company
located at 240 South Third
Street, Jacksonville Beach.
SRegistration will also take
place on the day of the race
beginning at 6 a.m.
BFAST offers competition in
individual, novice, clydesdale
(men over 200 pounds),
Athena (women over 150
pounds), fat tire, physically
challenged, uniform and team
divisions. A novice is consid-
ered someone who has never
attempted to race in any
triathlon before.
Participants vie for first, sec-
ond and third place series
awards in the male and female
categories. First place is a $400
American Bicycle Company
*gift-certificate. a second-place
finishh earns a $200tgift certifi-
cate and $100 gift certificates
are awarded to third place fin-
ishers. Triathletes must partici-
pate in all three series events
to qualify for the prizes.
Last year, 45-year-old Steve
Petitt, of Atlantic Beach, won
the May race in a time of
54:05. Jacksonville's Jennifer
Hanley-Pinto was the women's
winner, crossing the finish line
in 1:02:50.
In June, a pair of 20-year-
olds left the field in their
wake. Men's champ Dustin
McLarty, a member of the
University of Florida swim
team, won in 52:57. Amanda
Hahn, a competitor on the
Florida State women's cross-
country team, was the first
woman across the line in

champ and Hanley-Pinto, in

only her second season of
competition, captured the
women's crown.
Perennial men's champ
Danny Domingo took last sea-
son off from competition and
as of late this week had yet to
register for Saturday's race. He
last participated in 2005, win-
ning the first and third races of
the series, but did not qualify
for the championship because
he missed the second triathlon
in June.
As of Thursday, 343 athletes


had pre-registered for the
sprint triathlon and organizers
expect more will sign up before
Saturday's 6:45 a.m. deadline.
In 2005, the season's final
triathlon was marred by the
death of competitor Samuel
"Joe" Demeranville III who suf-
fered an apparent heart attack
following the quarter-mile
ocean swim.
Beaches Fine Arts Series offi-
cials said it was the first death
in 20 years of the triathlon

The triathlon series, entering
its 21st season, is the major
fundraiser for the Fine Arts
concert events. The Beaches
Fine Arts Series presents free
concerts, educational pro-
grams, and art exhibitions to
the community.
The concert series, which
will begin its 34th season this
September, features world-class
artists. Most of the concerts
take place at St. Paul's By The
Sea Episcopal Church in
Jacksonville Beach.

BFAST events have a huge cultural impact

Stretch your imaginations:
What do the Vienna
Choir Boys and a sprint
triathlon have in common?
If you said the Beaches Fine
Arts Series Triathlon then you
were right on.
In fact, the BFAST may be
the only combination of its
type in the world: A perfect
marriage of culture and sport
and one that should make
people throughout North
Florida very proud.
The Beaches Fine Arts
organization continues to
bring some of the world's
finest artists to Jacksonville
and thanks to the helping
hands of many generous spon-
sors, these great cultural acts
are all yours free of charge.
The annual triathlon series
is a large part of it, for the
three-race series is the biggest
fundraiser the organization
has all year, every year.
If you have ever been to a
BFAST race the one thing you
might admire above all is the
execution of the event. The
organization is flawlessly
Every official and volunteer
carries out his duties like a
well-oiled machine. And that
is saying something, for to
pull off a three-races-in-one
triathlon is no meager
BFAST has been doing it,
and sublimely well, for 20
This will be Doreen Sabina's

director although she is hardly

Who says a teenager
can't teach some-
thing to a doctor?
Well, not Jay Thaker, a 17-
year-old high school student
from Michigan who showed
that an:iPod can cause cardiac
pacemakers to malfunction.
In the study, Thaker tested
the effect ofaan-iPod on .100
pacemriaker patients, wh-" -
mean age was 77. Electrical
interference was detected half
of the time when the iPod was
held just two inches from the
patient's chest for five to 10
seconds, and in some cases
when the iPod was as much as
18 inches away.
In the most shocking case,
one pacemaker stopped work-
ing completely.
Thaker, whose father is an
electrophysiologist and whose
mother is a rheumatologist,
got the idea for the study after
he asked his dad about a
potential interaction between
pacemakers and iPods. He was
able to perform the study
along with Dr. Krit
Jongnarangsin (a longtime
friend of Thaker's father) at
the Thoracic and
Cardiovascular Institute at
Michigan State University.
Thaker presented his results
recently at the Heart Rhythm
Society annual meeting in
"Most pacemaker patients
are not iPod users,"
Jongnarangsin said, but he did
feel that this is definitely
something that needs to be
studied further.

Genes linked to
heart disease

Doctors have isolated a
genetic mutation which dra-
matically increases a person's
risk of a heart attack.
In a genetic analysis of
40,000 people; it was found,
that those with a mutation of
a stretch of DNA called 9q21
had nearly twice the risk for
heart attack before age 60
than those who did not have
the mutation.
The mutation was found in
nearly one in five Caucasians.
Interestingly, in African
Americans, the mutation did
not appear to significantly
increase the risk of heart dis-
SIf present at birth this muta-
tion would suggest that a per-
son may be predestined for
potential heart disease, despite
the fact that they may not
have high cholesterol, dia-
betes, or hypertension.
Hopefully, scientists may be
able to develop a test that can
easily show if one has the
mutation, and thus better pre-
dict one's risk for a heart
Researchers found that
about 21 percent of the people
they tested had mutations in
both copies of this DNA
stretch, giving them a 64 per-

"I did my first triathlon in

Beaches Fine Arts Triathlon in

"I have also been involved
with the Beaches Fine Arts
organization since the late
1990's helping with public
relations and marketing."
She continued: "This will be

Triathlon Federation) has been
around for 25 years so you can
see that we have been there
almost since the beginning."

"The cultural impact to our

Maybe they never go to see

it is all about; that's the true

I couldn't agree more. I
cannot think of any other
local sporting event that
translates into something as
meaningful and profound as
the BFAST triathlons. The
races also help to finance the
Beaches Fine Arts Series edu-
cational outreach programs.
The races are capped at 500
participants and 15 teams. If
the ceiling is not reached race
entries will be accepted until
6:30 a.m. on race day.
The Vienna Choir Boys?
Well, they may not be racing
but they, and a lot of others,
will be performing this sum-
mer at the St. Paul's By-The-

Blinded at a young age,
Mike May defied expecta-
tions by shattering records in
downhill speed skiing.
But his most daring
endeavor was yet to come.
May, a successful inventor
and entrepreneur who once
worked for the CIA, agreed
to a risky stem cell trans-
plant in 1999 that doctors
said could restore his vision,
lost at age 3.
His journey from darkness
to light is the basis for

"Crashing Through"'
(Random House, $25.95).
Kurson will sign copies of

In his 2004 debut book
"Shadow Divers," Kurson
explored a lost mystery of
World War II: the discovery
of a sunken German U-boat
off the Jersey coastline.
He could have easily fol-
lowed that up with another
true-life war story. But after
selling the film rights to
"Shadow Divers," now in
casting and slated to be
directed by Australian Peter
Weir (Master and
Commander), Kurson was
looking for a different writ-
ing challenge.

Kurson first told May's
story in Esquire magazine,
where he is a contributing
editor. The 75,000-word
piece won a 2006 National
Magazine Award.
Before May's eye surgery,
there were fewer than 20
known cases in which a per-
son gained vision after a life-
time of blindness, according
to Kurson.
"Each of those people suf-

fered from desperate conse-
quences we can scarcely
imagine," Kurson adds.
"There were countless rea-
sons for May to refuse vision.

Moonlight Movies resumes

tonight with 1980s comedy

Grab a large blanket, your
friends and family and enjoy a
relaxing evening in front of
the big screen as the city of
Jacksonville Beach resumes its
annial Moonlight Movies
series today.
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off,"
the classic 1980s comedy, will
be shown at 9 p.m. at the
SeaWalk Pavilion. The event is
free to the public.
Jdin Ferris, Cameron and
Sloane as they attempt to
enjoy the greatest day off from
high school, ever.
Ferris Bueller (Matthew
Broderick) is the high school
wise guy, adored by the
school's entire student body.
With graduation just around
the corner, Ferris decides it is
high time for a break. He con-
vinces his best pal Cameron
(Alan Ruck) to "borrow" his
father's Ferrari and the two
devise a plan to sneak Ferris'
girlfriend, Sloane (Mia Sara)

out of class.
When he tests his luck at
playing sick, Ferris manages to
fool everyone in town, except
for the suspicious dean of stu-
dents, Edward Rooney (Jeffery
Jones) and his jealous sister
Jeanie (Jennifer Grey).
Rooney tracks Ferris like a
hunting dog to prove his sus-
picions correct, but Ferris is
always two steps ahead of this
over-eager dean. Jeanie, on the
other hand, knows the entire
story and is simply out for
revenge. Ferris' parents have
no clue of their son's elaborate
fibbing, they presume he is an
angel, sound asleep in bed.
Come early for the best seats

attraction, the

Matheson: Drainage is critical in containers.

Continued from B-1

pamper the few that are try-
ing to pull through and
ignore the rest.

lars and it will do the trick
with some other insects as

If you can tolerate picking
off any caterpillars that
might be eating your toma-
toes or squash, that is what
I'd try to do. Any chemical,
be it environmentally friend-
ly or not, is an added stress
to the plant, and therefore,
should be avoided.
We can all expect vegetable
prices to rise due to this
drought, so just go with the
I am a flower lover and
usually have many flowers
planted in pots as well as in
the ground. I now have
about 20 that are sitting in
the shade on my driveway
just waiting to be planted.
Some I've babied for a
month but its just been too
hot to deal with them. I have
decided that when a shady
day arrives, they will not go
into the ground, as I'd origi-
nally planned for some, but
will all go into containers of
some kind.
This will be for ease of
watering. I also think this
will be the best way to help
them survive. I can move
some to a shadier spot if
need be.

You may be contemplating
this as well, and so I want to
remind you of a few rules
that go with using contain-
Drainage is critical, and if
you cannot poke holes in the
bottom of the pot, then you
must use something that ele-
vates the plant from the
water that will collect there.
Many things are fine to
use: clay pieces, stones,
chunks of Styrofoam, upside
down small plastic pots, even
chunks of bark are usually
OK, but filling the lower
third of the container with
this drainage material is criti-
The second critical piece is
the looseness of the soil that
you use. "Potting soil," the
inexpensive kind that is
called just that, is too heavy

preferred for containers.

well as moisture control slow

the moisture control type for
my planters in New
Hampshire, and it has
worked well. I am not there
all the time to water the
Here I have used the kind
with fertilizer in it, and have

been very pleased. This year,
I am going to try both, most-
ly because of the drought.
You, as well as I, will have to
monitor the water we give
these pots and make sure we
are not overwatering.
When arranging a contain-
er, make sure each plant in
one container has similar
requirements. Do they all
need a lot of sun? Do they all
need about the same amount
of water? You will fail if you
mix shady with sun-loving
plants, or succulents with
plants like impatiens that
need frequent watering.
Because it is so hot already
and so dry, here are my sug-
gestions for the most hardy
plants to use.
The following can handle
sun or partial shade: Coleus,
daladiums, Blue Daze, sweet
potato vine, Moreae lily(
African iris), Aztec grass,
mondo grass, Asiatic jasmine
as a trailing plant, asparagus
fern and gingers.

Notice that I have left out
an awful lot of plants, many
of which I love. But these
above will be the best for the

type of weather we will prob-
ably be getting for the next
few months. They will take
hold faster and they will get
adjusted to stressful condi-
tions easier than some of the
more finicky ones.
I have left out the natives,
which are many, and also
shrubs that bring summer
color. If you want to use
shrubs for summer flowers,
get them into the ground
NOW. Plumbago, hibiscus,
antique roses, coral vine,
thryallis, ixora, etc. will do
well in the drought if you are
diligent in getting them
established by hand watering
them every day.
If you are unwilling or
cannot do that, I'd forget
them for this year and just
go with the easiest or none
at all. By the way, they can
be planted into a container if

help preserve the moisture in

artists of the 20 century are
Those of you who appreci-
ate contemporary art will
enjoy this exhibit, and those
of you who do not enjoy con-
temporary are can learn much
from this exhibit.
It contains a variety of
ideas, techniques and medi-
:ums modern day artists use,
but most important to me is
'the originality of the subject

After viewing these simple
and complex ideas portrayed
on canvas and other mediums
you might remark, "Why did I
not think of that?"
The exhibit is educational
and entertaining and will be
at the museum through Aug.
You can see it this Sunday,
May 20, from noon until 5
p.m. without charge, as part of
Family Free Day at the
Cummer. Call 356-6857.

Mora celebrates female form, tropics

"Pamela" by Enrique Mora

Enrique Mora uses the term
"Oceanico" to describe the ves-
tige of living in a place that is
surrounded by the sea.
Mora, a Jacksonville resi-
dent, will open "Oceanico," a
new exhibit of his work, today
at Stellers Gallery Annex in
Neptune Beach.
A reception for the artist is 6
p.m. to 9 p.m. at 200 First
Mpra will present mixed
media paintings that portray
an array of passionate colors,
textures and voluptuous
shapes representing his Puerto
Rican heritage and Caribbean
Mora's work primarily cele-

brates the female form, the
tropics, and more with
expressive, vivid images that
literally rise from the canvas.
The exhibit is a fusion of his
Caribbean upbringing" and
travel adventures throughout
the Pacific Islands, as well as
inspirations from his home
state of Florida.
Colors, textures, forms,
music and characters of equa-
torial tropical life are ignited
throughout the show and are
featured in all of Mora's works.
Mora's Puerto Rican upbring-
ing and the city of Jacksonville
have served to influence his
Throughout his childhood

and during the 1980s, Mora
experienced the Puerto Rican
art scene through his family's
art gallery, and later with his
own solo exhibits and provid-
ing corporate collections.
The artist has spent much of
his time traveling, examining
the landscape, terrains, ocean
and cultures in the Caribbean,
South America, Germany, and
the U.S. His studio is in
Mora has presented shows at
galleries in Frankfurt,
Jacksonville, Miami, New York
City, Sacramento, San Juan,
San Francisco, and Tokyo.
His works have been com-
pared to Mexican artist Rufino

Tamayo, Modigliani and
Picasso, but Mora's wisdom,
inspiration and style are all his
"I use a lot of primary col-
ors," said Mora.
"My figures are cubist and
expressionist and my work is
about the bright weather,
gracefulness of anatomy, the
silhouette of a woman and
traces of symbolism such as
peace, love and abundance.
The palate I use is filled with
light," he said.
Stellers Gallery Annex is
open Monday through Friday
from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and
on Saturday from 10 a.m.'until

early '20s. Most were horror
flicks of one kind or another -
monsters, zombies and crazed
serial killers all providing lit-

ground noise for Saturday
night dates.
Times, as they're wont to do,
changed, and with it the
movie industry. "Grindhouse"
flicks became passe, and these
cheap but extremely profitable
flicks fell by the wayside. Now,
two famous directors, Quentin

Tarantino and Robert
Rodriguez, have decided to
pay. homage to those days of
The result is "Gridhouse," a
three-hour spoof of a time
long past.
"Grindhouse" consists of two
completely separate flicks,
"Planet Terror" and "Death
Proof." Rodriquez wrote the
first, Tarantino the second.
Both before and between the
flicks are hilarious fake trailers,
the standout of which is
"Werewolf Women of the SS."
The flicks and trailers run
continuously, so a mid-flick
run to the concession stand
isn't possible. Interestingly,
Tarantino directed "Kill Bill I &
II," which are exactly
"Grindhouse's" opposite.
Originally one long movie, it
was cleaved in two in hopes of
a fatter box office. Now

Rodriquez ("Sin City," "Spy
Kids") and Tarantino have
teamed to make what will be
more than a footnote in
movie history.

Together, though, movie
buffs will perhaps find an
interesting development of
this art form. Despite the
film's intentional graininess
and sudden jumps attributed
to "missing reels," both films'
production values are of the
highest quality.
The pyrotechnics and car
crashes are memorable, and
acting talent such as Bruce
Willis (the "Die Hard" series),
Kurt Russell ("Tombstone,"
"Escape from L.A.") and Josh

Brolin ("Into the Blue,"
"Coastlines") are liberally
employed in this R-rated film.

Directing "Fracture" is
Gregory Hoblin, best known
for "Hart's War" and
"Frequency." The screenplay
was written by Daniel Pyne
("Syriana," "Zodiac") and
Glenn Gers ("The
Accountant," TV's "NYPD
Blue"). Though Hoblin's
directing is stellar, the script
possesses numerous holes and
excessive length. Despite this,
it's relatively easy to follow.

Albario a precious white grape variety from Spain

Albarino a precious white grape variety from Spain

W e have said before
that Spain is often an
ignored wine grow-
ing region even though it pro-
duces some great wines. In
recent years we have written
about the complex red wines
from Rioja to Priorato. Today,
though, we have a special
white wine: Albarino.
Albarino may be Spain's
most precious white grape
variety and one of its most
expensive wine. It is grown in
the Galicia region of north-
west Spain where granite and
chalk soils are a short distance
from the Atlantic Coast. The
weather here is cool and wet,
which generally is not favor-
able to grapes. However, the
albarino grape has a thick skin

'The Wine Guys'

to resist disease. To reduce the
risk of rot, vines are trained
on pergolas, high off the
ground, where air circulates

Thick skins often mean high
acidity, but that's pait of the
attraction of this dry wine. In
addition, they have a mineral
character and often pit fruit
flavors like peach. Some argue
that albarino has a genetic
relationship with riesling,
although we found its person-
ality more like sauvignon
blanc. In any case, it's a deli-
cious, medium-body wine that
is best drunk as an aperitif or
alongside fish.
The best albarinos come
from Rias Baixas. A "rias' is a
deep and wide inlet of water
that run far into the coastline.
The southern group of these
inlets is Galicia. Surrounding
these riases are the vineyards.
We found the wines to too
delicate to be paired with

heavily sauced dishes.
However, the acidity and aro-
matic advantages make them
a terrific match with most
seafood. Given the unique
nature of this variety, it would
be a change of pace for your
guests. They do not age well,
so forget about socking some
away in the cellar.
The 2004 vintage was very
good in Spain and there are
still many on the shelves and
are showing beautifully now.
The 2005 is good too.
There has been some success
with this grape variety in
Oregon and California, but
frankly we can't understand
why anyone would go else-
where for the real thing.
Here are several albarinos
we rounded up from area

Burgans Albarino 2005
($12). Although one of the
least expensive, it was one of
our favorites because of the
generous fruit flavors. It's a
custom cuvee made for
American importer Eric
Solomon and boasts orange
and tropical fruit flavors with.
aromas of melon and apricots.
Excellent value.
Vina Nora Albarino 2004
($15). Big tropical fruit fla-
vors, brisk acidity and hints of
figs and mineral.
Lagar de Cervera Albarino
2004 ($22). This is a beautiful
wine, awarded 89 by wine crit-
ic Robert Parker Jr. who com-
pared its exotic flavors to a
Condrieu viognier. Mineral
notes abound along with trop-

ical fruit and a bit of citrus.
Lusco do Mino Albarino
2004 ($22). More elegant in
style, this albarino sports
grapefruit and pineapple fla-
vors with lively but controlled
acidity. It has the structure to
allow it to age for a couple of
years, but why bother? It is as
serious a wine as a white bur-
gundy to match with seafood.
For more information, call
3 Blind Moose Pinot Grigic
2005 ($10). If you like your
pinot grigio slightly sweet and
fruity, this one is for you.
Made in California, it has pear
and peach aromas with tropi-
cal fruit flavors and good

Pamper your pets with simple home improvements

very pet deserves a
home of its own.
Whether it's a doghouse
or a cat hammock you can
give your beloved pet a
retreat where he or she can
relax and feel safe.


Nowadays doghouses come
in all sizes, even duplexes for
more than one pet. Many
companies are willing to sell
custom-made houses that
match the breed; for exam-
ple, a Swiss chalet for a
Bernese mountain dog, or a
Spanish mission for a
Chihuahua, etc. If really you
want to lavish your dog with
the best, consider doghouse
amenities such as floor
length windows, air condi-
tioners and marble floors
which are all available in a
custom made doghouse.

starting at about $150.
Consider the location of
the doghouse as well. If your
dog sleeps outdoors in cold
- -- weather make sure to provide
i insulation. Carpeting is great,
S' but it attracts insects and
fleas so consider using a
B foam pad instead with a
washable vinyl cover.

bed styles available for the

Cat Enclosures
Like doghouses, cat enclo-
sures come in many styles
and can be an add-on to your
home, similar to a screen
porch, or stand alone in the
yard. They can be built by a
professional or you can build
your own with a kit ordered
Also, consider adding a
doggie door for your cat..
These are easy to install,
inexpensive and you'll never
have to remember to let the
cat out again.
Another option is a cat run
made of mesh which allows
your pet to explore your
backyard without falling prey

to disease, automobiles, or
the dog next door.

Cat Trees
Not only will a cat tree
keep Kitty from scratching
your favorite furniture, it can
be a fun place for your cat to
hang out. Usually covered
with carpeting, cat trees
come with all sorts of fea-
tures cats can't resist.such as
feathers, specialized scratch-
ing posts, enclosed hideaways.
and catnip trays.
Amenities and the number
of tiers will ultimately deter-
mine the price. Expect to pay
$50 and up, though they are
frequently on sale so shop

Hammock Time
Cat hammocks are easy to
install and a feline favorite.
Some can be mounted onto a
windowsill to allow your cat
to laze in the sunshine and

while watching the neighbor-
hood. Other cat hammocks
are freestanding or can be
placed on the radiator. If you
have ever discovered your cat
asleep on your laptop, this
may be the item for you!
They are priced at under $50,
and can usually be found at
any pet store.
Though we love our pets
and want to be around them
all of the time, they need a
place of their own. Too often
we find ourselves yelling at
them to get off the furniture,
the bed, the windowsill, etc.,
but this can easily be com-
bated by giving them their
own retreat. The space need-
n't be elaborate or expensive
and in the end it will benefit
both of you.

Scale and proportion: Interior design principles that create a room that 'works'

f you've ever walked into a
room and felt immediately
uncomfortable, it's probably
because something was out
of proportion.
Often when rooms aren't
designed right, the effect is a
kind of discomfort that you
can't put your finger on.
The problem could be with
scale. This interior design
principle is one of the found-
ing guidelines to creating a
room that "works," as
designers often say.
Understanding scale
Scale is a word that refers
to how the sizes of furnish-
ings and windows, for exam-
ple, are sized in relationship
to the room. Today's homes
often have much larger pro-
portions than homes built
even 10 years ago. So, small
two-inch trim around door-
ways or a tiny side table next
to a beefy sofa would look
silly in a 6,000-square-foot
A good example of this is
the nursery tale of Goldilocks
and the Three Bears.
Even Goldilocks knew to
keep going to the right bed
.nd the right chair so she'd
be more comfortable. Too
many houses suffer front
Goldilocks S\ndrome either
something is too big o0 too
small ci the' have a hard
time getting the size "just
But when size, or scale, is
correct, the room feels good.
Learning some of the basics
ot scale and proportion will


help you keep you from feel-
ing like Alice in Wonderland
in your own home.
My scale dilemma
My home was a good
example of scale problems.
Because I like to take
"before" pictures, I snapped a
few of them around the
house right after we moved
in. I'd planned on replacing
the nightstand tables and
dresser at some point, but
when I saw the pictures of
the furniture in the room,

the scale of the nightstands
looked comical.
After taking the picture of
my bedroom, I made it my
priority to scout out some
new nightstands and dresser.
Once I found the right ones,
the change was dramatic. Of
course, I also added new
accessories, bedding, and
shutters on the windows.
Size no-no's
Could you be committing a
scale or sizing sin? It's possi-
ble. There are some areas
where it's more noticeable
than others. On the too-
small side, light fixtures, bed-
side tables, little pictures and
artwork, and micro-acces-
sories top the list.
When these items are too
small, the room feels annoy-
ing to you. On the too-large
size side, sofas and chairs are
usually the culprits.
For a while, furniture man-
ufacturers were making sofas
and chairs with enormous
arms. Thankfully, this trend
slowed stopped. When items
are too large, you feel claus-
trophobic and hemmed in.
My own no-no's

Interestingly, the pictures I
hung above my bed after
moving into our home both-
'ered me, too.
My eye was always drawn
to them when I walked into
the room because they were
too small and out of scale.
Notice the pictures above the
bed from both photographs.
They show what a differ-
ence changing the scale of
the accessories in the room


can make. Now, I'm comfort-
able in the room and don't
immediately look at any-
thing when I walk in. And,
that's your cue, too.
If you find that your eye is
drawn to some part of your
room or house, chances are
it's because something about
it is "off."
Take a photograph and you
might just see with a picture
what your eyes can't tell you.

The camera never lies, as the
saying goes, and it tells the
honest truth about your
home, too.
It's also the fastest way to
identify whether the items in
your room are the correct
scale for the room.
Whether it's clothing or
furniture, correct size means
a good fit and greater 'com-
fort overall.
