With the state legislature still discussing property
tax reform, local city officials are bracing for a finan-
cial hit.
At a time when Beach city administrators are usual-
ly prepping budgets for the fiscal year that starts Oct.
1, city officials this year are juggling several budget
scenarios, trying to guess what tax reform will mean.
In Jacksonville Beach, the city manager is drafting
multiple budgets,assuming a $1 million, $2 million or
$3 million shortfall in ad valorem tax revenue,
according to Mayor Fland Sharp.
No one is sure what the impact will be, Sharp said,
so everyone is just waiting to see how much property
tax revenues fall.
Neptune Beach City Manager Jim Jarboe said this


week that cities here are working on "what ifs."
"We're trying to figure out where we can make cuts
without cutting service," Jarboe said. Only essential
spending is permitted, he said, explaining that some
professional memberships will not be renewed. For
example, a new mower may not be purchased if the
city will not be able to mow all its grass as often.
So far, the city staff has.identified $100,000 it can
squeeze out, but anywhere from $350,000 to
$700,000 may have to be cut from the city's $2 mil-
lion general fund, he said
The city has $500,000 in reserves, but needs those
in the event of a catastrophe such as a hurricane,
Jarboe said.
It will be early July before detailed information is
available, he said

Planning for Jax Beach's future

key concerns A

Pr,.:. t., ALEX.NDRA Kut.r.ERNES
A crowd of more than three dozen attended a meeting to plan the future of down-
town Jacksonville Beach.


Vision fQr JB's

downtown reflects

look of yesterday

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Beach citizens want a
safe. walkable community, according to
the ideas and presentations many
expressed at: the first "downtown
visioning" meeting Tuesday.
The interactive meeting, facilitated
by the Orlando-based urban design firm
Glatting Jackson, was divided into three
sections where residents defined their
values, documented their issues with
the community and created an overall
vision for the central business district.
"We're all proud of the downtown
area. Tonight is sort of a 'where do we
go from here.' Be a group of free
thinkers," Jacksonville Beach Mayor
Fland Sharp advised residents before
they began.
Citizens compiled lists of their values
and areas they wanted to see improved
in the downtown area which includes
properties east of 3rd Street from 6th
Avenue N. to 2nd Avenue S.

Member says in resigning seat

AB district committee has compromised integrity


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
The final report on whether the city
of Atlantic Beach should move to dis-
trict representation is due at the end of
the month, but one committee mem-
ber has resigned, claiming that the
"integrity" and "credibility" of the
committee and process has been com-
promised.
Atlantic Beach resident John Fletcher
of McNeil, Garrison and Fletcher
Insurance Agency, resigned from the
city's district representation study
committee, explaining in a letter that a
subcommittee, responsible for drafting
a report of the facts presented to the


"...the subcommittee
wrongly substituted itself
for the full committee"

John Fletcher
Committee member
full committee, overstepped its bound-
aries.
"By engaging, in deliberations that
should have been conducted by the
entire committee, and issuing a recom-
mendation, the subcommittee wrongly
substituted itself for the full commit-
tee," Fletcher said in the letter.
When contacted, Fletcher declined


further comment in an effort to be
"mindful" of the work that the com-
mittee was still conducting.
The committee was originally
formed at Mayor Don Wolfson's
request to study district representation
- after several citizen complaints that
there was not equal representation of
all parts of the city on the commission.
The committee was instructed to
write a report on their findings.
According to City Manager Jim
Hanson, the full committee designated
a subcommittee to compile a list of the
facts and findings of the full commit-
tee- which was its only task.

Time/ tide clock
at AB's 5-points
needs repairs
FROM STAFF
Atlantic Beach City
Commissioners
Monday will consider
upgrading the clock
at the five-points
intersection by City
Hall, according to a
report by Public Works Director
Rick Carper.
When a, tide clock feature was
incorporated into the year-old
clock, the whole clock move-
ment had to be replaced with a
less expensive movement mech-
anism, which is causing minor
inaccuracies that were not
anticipated, Carper said.
A technician from Fancy
Street Clock Co., the company
that installed the clock, made
minor adjustments to the clock
Thursday and told public works
to "keep an eye on it," Carper
said.
Carper has provided a list of
five options for' the City
Commission, four of which
would not cost the city any
money. One option that calls for
changing to a four-face clock,
with two for tides and two for
time, would cost the city $4,800
more.
The clock originally cost
$7,000 to install. The city paid
$3,000 last year and the rest of
the money came from private
donations.


Those at Tuesday's meeting to
develop a vision for the i hat
downtown Jacksonville Beach
should look ike in the future
agreed on the following priorities:

The Package
(this was most popular
idea with attendees):
Wider, well marked
bike lanes, narrower
streets, slower traffic
.lanes, wider side-
walks, well delineated
crosswalks

* Safety

* Beach access

* Mixed use devel-
opments

* More retail (i.e.
boutiques)

* Better utilization of
the boardwalk and
pier

* More restaurants

* More hotels

* A pedestrian friend-
ly community

* More bike paths

* Police visibility

* Better landscaping
and vegetation (more
trees and shade)

Bowling

For sale sign does
not mean end
near for keglers

by LEAH FAE COCHRAN
STAFF WRITER
When the staff and patrons of
Beach Bowl pulled up to the alley
la couple of months ago they
were flabbergasted to find "for
sale" signs posted all over the
front of the building.
"We just pulled up and there
they were," said manager Brett
Robinson. "No warning whatso-
ever."
However, the signs don't mean
an end to bowling any time soon,
according to managers.
Miles Batt, who has been a part
of Beach Bowl for 21 years, said
he has a lease on the property
that extends until 2012, so if any-
one buys the building, the bowl-
ing alley business will come with
it, he said.
See BOWLING, A-3


What was said:

"The purpose of a city is to
maximize change and minimize
travel," said Glatting Jackson's
Director of Urban Planning Troy
Russ.

One resident explained that a
well-lit downtown area is essen-
tial. "If you don't have lighting,
we're not going to come down-
town," he said.

Some groups said that the
height limit should be re-
addressed.

"No one in this room is going
to get 100 percent of what they
want," said Glatting senior plan-
ner Tara Salmieri, but the goal is
to get about 70 to 80 percent so
that the majority of people will be
pleased and more can get
accomplished.

Teens get taste of medical careers at Baptist


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Grace Allison opens a massive
filing cabinet, using two hands
to turn the black handle until
the doors unfold.
It's her first day on the job as
a teen volunteer at Baptist
Medical Center Beaches and she
is pulling charts for patients
with upcoming appointments
in Radiology.
The exposure is good for her
because she wants to pursue a
career in the medical field as
long as she does not have to
perform surgeries because "I'll
faint," she said.
While many teenagers will
spend their summer vacations
at the beach or the mall, a group
of teens will spend their days
volunteering at BMCB in vari-
ous areas of service.
The teen volunteer program,
sponsored by the auxiliary, has
been around for several years
and offers students the opportu-
nity to fulfill a community serv-
ice requirement for high school
graduation.
However, many of the volun-
teers enjoy the experience so
much they return each summer,
even though they have met
their community service
requirements.
"Its fun because some of them
[patients] like to talk to you and
tell you their history," said Janis
Thiemann, who is returning for
her third year to volunteer at
the hospital and is working in
the nursing department.
According to the Program
Chair Madeline Jarvis, many of
the students form bonds with
patients that, they see often,
which adds to the overall expe-
rience.
"You meet so many different
people from all walks of life,"
said Jordanne Ryan, who has
been volunteering at the hospi-
tal for the last three years even


though she has fulfilled her
community service require-
ments.
Volunteering helps satisfy
community service require-
ments needed to secure a a state
Bright Futures scholarship.
Some students consider the
experience positive exposure to
the inner workings of a hospital
and plan on applying their
knowledge in medical careers,
although not all of the students
plan on pursuing a medical
career.
Jarvis said she thinks that the
exposure and experience gained
by students in the program who
want to study medicine is one
of its most "enriching" aspects.
"Its four hours out of your
day. That's a small price to pay
for the experience," said Pamela
Elder, who has also been in the
program for three years. Elder
plans to study anthropology,
but believes she will incorpo-
rate her hospital experience into
her future degree.
While students are supervised
and are not allowed to take on
any major medical tasks, they
help in other ways.
Some of their duties include
greeting people, filing, cleaning
and disinfecting patient's
rooms, inputting patient infor-
mation into the computer and
checking people into the hospi-
tal.
"We're easing people's anxi-
eties. Our job is to make things
go smoothly and .transition
well, Ryan said.
Students, who must be at
least 14 years old to participate
in the program, have to go
through an orientation process
and then can select the depart-
ment in which they wish to vol-
unteer.
Students can choose from out-
patient registration, .being a
greeter or escort, radiology, out-
patient surgery, physical thera-

Taxes:


Cont. from A-1
That means city officials
throughout the state will be
scrambling to set budgets and
millage rates in time to meet an
August deadline to notify tax-
payers.
Atlantic Beach City Manager
Jim Hanson said he has directed
his department heads to prep
budgets that will be 10 percent
below the current year's budget.
A normal budget will be pre-
sented to the commission,
assuming no property tax
reform. Then a list of cost-cut-
ting options will be provided to
the commission for considera-
tion if reform passes.
So far, the city has been look-
ing to cut between $500,000
and $1 million from its budget,
which is approximately $10
million, Hanson said.
He said if service has to be cut
he expects residents to be
unhappy.
"That's why we have the
Beach cities. People demand a
higher level of service," Hanson
said. "I take issue with the state
legislature trying to supplant
locals with a one size fits all
solution."
According to the Florida
League Of Cities, the legisla-
ture's Select Committee on
Property Tax Relief and Reform
will meet Monday prior to the
Special Legislative Session that
convenes June 12.
To date, no specifics have
been presented on legislative
proposals and the fiscal impact
to cities, according to the
League, which represents the
interests of municipalities in
Florida.
The League has suggested
cities contact the county prop-
erty appraiser and "develop a

"Safety seems to be a real
big value of the community,"
said one of the facilitators
and the firm's Senior Planner
Tara Salmieri after citizens
posted their values on a wall
with Post-It notes.
Some of the other key val-
ues expressed were a sense of
community and a more fami-
ly-oriented environment.
Troy Russ, the firm's direc-
tor of urban design, detailed
the elements of a city and
explained to citizens.essential
design qualities that make
some cities superior tartid-.
could bring their ideas. and
values to fruition.
"You have good bones," he
said of the city's overall struc-
ture, but explained how they
could be improved.
Russ said that attention to
detail and overall design are
what make town centers dif-
ferent than the rest of the city
and asked residents to think
about these things as they
discussed their ideas.
"A downtown should be a
reflection of your city in
microcosm," he said.
Russ told citizens to think
about the six. basic elements
that compose a city, which
include public buildings,
neighborhoods, parks, the
natural environment, streets
and commercial centers while
creating their downtown
vision.

"It's iron-clad," said
Robinson of the lease. "We're
not going anywhere until
then."
The Setzers, owners of the
building for 21,years, died in
early 2007 and their four
daughters, in Texas, inherited
the property, manager said.
According to alley managers,
the family wanted to sell the
property, which is appraised by
the county at about $1.1 mil-
lion.
Beach Bowl employs about
25 people who are all Beaches
residents.
Robinson has worked there
for eight years and Paula
Coenen, the other manager,
has worked there nearly since
it was opened, she said in
1983. It is 24 lanes and has
many participants in its
leagues which are offered for
children as young as age three.
They are actively involved in
the community and the
schools, offering free bowling
cards to.students regularly.
"We try to run a nice, safe,
clean place for parents to bring
their kids," Robinson said.
"There really aren't any family
activities at the Beach any-
more. We are one of the last
ones."
They said that the communi-
ty had a huge response to the
signs being posted, so much so
that the alley had to put out an
official memo reassuring
bowlers that the facility is not
closing down just yet.
"It's been overwhelming the


process to evaluate the fiscal
impact of a proposed constitu-
tional amendment. The details
of this proposal are not avail-
able yet, but it is expected to
create enhanced homestead
exemptions based on property
values," the league said in a
June 6 memo..
Since the legislature is consid-
ering statutory changes requir-
ing cities to roll back revenues
based on a city's "fiscal pru-
dence" over the last five years,
the league has also suggested
cities consider how they might
fare under a "fiscal prudence
evaluation." No details are pro-
vided, however.
Hanson said such an evalua-
tion is a "pretty vague term, but
then there's vagueness to it all."
The committee has already
said it plans to have a constitu-
tional amendment on the ballot
on January 29, 2008, the same
day as the Florida Presidential
Primary. That vote would alter
homestead exemptions.
That is the second phase of a
two-part process to cut property
taxes in the state, according to
the League.
In the first phase, immediate
statutory tax relief will require
cities to cut property taxes
based on past taxing perform-
ance, according to a joint letter
by Senate President Ken Pruitt
and House Speaker Marco
Rubio. Their comments include
a condensed outline of the
agreement drafted so far in the
legislature. Overriding that cap
would have to be done by an
"extraordinary vote," the defi-
nition of which is unclear,
Jarboe said.
"For now cities are question-
ing the short and long term of
it," Hanson said.


Russ gave examples of
pedestrian-friendly cities that
have a concentrated hub of
public institutions, parks and
commercial districts, such as
Celebration, Fla. and West
Palm Beach, Fla.
"The community of tomor-
row is actually the communi-
ty of yesterday," he said.
He emphasized the impor-
tance of "walkable" commu-
nities, explaining that one
quality of a well-designed city
is a "park once environ-
ment," in which a person can
park. their car one time and
i, walk to -all o-the places they"
need to go, '" .::: '' ..' j .
"The average American will
only walk 500 feet," he said.
"If you can improve the qual-
ity of the walk, you'll get
them to walk up to half a
mile."
He also emphasized that in
order to do this, the develop-
ment community would have
to be allowed some flexibility.
Residents sat and discussed
their issues and overall vision
Sfor the downtown area and
then presented ideas.
The firm will use this infor-
mation to create a checklist
for their planning.
"Even though we're in a
room full of people with dif-
ferent values, we're coming
down to about eight or nine
things that give you a core
value," Salmieri said.


PV Senior Center gets new chef


by LEAH FAE COCHRAN
STAFF WRITER
atrons of the new Players
Senior Community Center in
Ponte Vedra Beach are delight-
ed about the special treatment their
taste buds are getting now that
Chef Alan McWilliam has been
hired.
Working from a sparkling new
commercial-grade kitchen in the
center that opened May 8,
McWilliam whips up specials such
as chicken salad with alfalfa, chick-
en cordon bleu and gourmet sand-
wiches for lunch daily.
Seniors having lunch Tuesday said
his meals beat the ones that used to
come from the St. Johns County
Council on Aging's kitchen in St.
Augustine, which were kept warm
until noon.
Among those lunching Tuesday
were Jo and Sid Mickler, who have
attended senior programs in the
Ponte Vedra-Palm Valley area since
they began at 148 Canal Boulevard
in November 2003.
"Last week he did a roast beef and
mashed potatoes that were just fab-
ulous," Jo Mickler said of the new
chef.


When the COA was looking for a
chef for the new center, it wanted
someone who "gets" the concept of
treating seniors well, executive
director Cathy Brown has said.
Brown said Tuesday she was look-
ing for someone "way overqualified"
for the job because she knows how
important meals are for a good
quality of life.
"Having good food makes it more
worthwhile for everyone to get
together, share a meal and enjoy
each others' company," Brown said.
McWilliam has been a chef for
about 20 years. He worked for the
Holiday Inn in Baymeadows before
he was hired by the center.
He said he is enjoying working
with the staff and volunteers at the
Players center, and especially the
patrons, who he said are all "won-
derful people" .
"It's a very positive, fun atmos-
phere," McWilliam said.
In addition to preparing Tuesday's
lunch, the chef was planning the
fare for the grand opening of the
center Friday at noon.
He said he plans on a finger food
menu and a carving station with
beef, turkey and ham as well as a
pasta bar.


LeMaster name urged


for new PV school


FROM STAFF
A committee composed
largely of Ponte Vedra Beach
residents is renewing its push
to name the new Ponte Vedra
high school after the late
Edward B. LeMaster.
Meanwhile, St. Johns
schools Superintendent
Joseph Joyner on Tuesday
released the name of his
selection to head the new
high school Craig Speziale,
co-principal of. Miami
Jackson Senior High. (See
story, this page).
In a June 2 letter, Malcolm
W. Robinson Jr., a member of
the "Edward B. LeMaster
Memorial Committee," says
the committee recommends
naming the school for Mr.
LeMaster, "who was its chief
benefactor."
Mr. LeMaster, a
Jacksonville native who was
general manager and later



District:
Cont. from A-1

Fletcher said in his letter
that the subcommittee, which
he was not a part of, had a
"full scale debate on district
representation" and then
issued a recommendation.
The recommendation sug-
gested that the city be divided
into four districts and a com-
missioner would have to live
in each district. However, the
election of them would be
city-wide, according to
Hanson.
Fletcher also said that the
full committee was not proper-
ly notified of the subcommit-
tee meeting.
Hanson said he took respon-


consultant to the Ponte
Vedra Inn & Club, died in
November 2005 at his ocean-
front home in Ponte Vedra
Beach.
A two-page "detailed back-
ground" explaining why the
committee is promoting the
LeMaster name for the school
accompanied Robinson's let-
ter.
It apparently is the same
background letter sent last
fall by the committee.
Member Doug Crane said
Tuesday the letter was being
reissued so Mr. LeMaster's
name would stay in the pub-
lic eye while the school's
name is being selected.
Joyner is expected to
appoint members of the
community for a committee
that will select a school
name.
The school is expected to
open in August 2008.

sibility, saying "the ball got
dropped" due to an oversight.
Hanson spoke to City
Attorney Alan Jensen, who
advised that the committee
should disregard the subcom-
mittee recommendation.
The full committee also had
discussions about district rep-
resentation at previous meet-
ings, Hanson said.
While Hanson agreed that
Fletcher was correct in his
accusations as to what hap-
pened, he said that he does
not think that the integrity
and credibility of the commit-
tee has been compromised.
"I think it was maybe the
subcommittee being a little
overzealous," he said.

amount of responses we've had
and they are still coming every
day," Robinson said.
As for the fate of the alley
when the lease runs out,
Robinson said that the opera-
tors will do their best to try and
keep it open for the Beaches


citizens.
"We're kind of hoping a
knight in shining armor will
come through and decide that
the Beach still needs a bowling
center, because we sure think
so," he said.

OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH

A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY

NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES


June 8, 2007


www.beachesleader.com Locally Owned and Operated m Serving the Beaches since 1963 THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER


What others are saying:

The following editorial was printed on June 6,
2007, in the Fernandina Beach News-Leader.


Who will pay



for the ferry?

The Mayport ferry is popular with Nassau County resi-
dents, many of whom use it to cut short the journey from
Amelia Island to Atlantic, Jacksonville, Neptune and Ponte
Vedra beach communities.
But the ferry is not self-sustaining with current fares.
Revenue from passengers is about $1.1 million, leaving a
nearly $800,000 gap that Duval County has covered,
according to Susie Wiles, spokesperson for Jacksonville
Mayor John Peyton. Next year a subsidy of as much as $1
million may be needed, Wiles said.
Peyton has indicated the city can no longer afford the
subsidy. Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed a $396,000 state appro-
priation proposed by area legislators to help cover the
deficit.
The service was once funded by the state Department of
Transportation because the ferry links A1A from Fort
George Island to Mayport. The state route could use the
Dames Point bridge, but that might actually cost more to
maintain, creates a longer drive for travelers and bypasses
Mayport.
The problem is a simple one. Taxpayers, including many
who live on Amelia Island, are fed up and don't want to
pay more for local and state services. But these services
cost money; someone must pay, or the services must be
reduced or eliminated.
We want to see the ferry saved it's one of our favorite
institutions.
But we cannot advocate that Nassau County govern-
ments contribute to ferry operations. Any government
subsidy should be shared by Duval and state governments
to help defray costs.
Perhaps the developers who have proposed major rede-
velopment of the fishing village of Mayport would be will-
ing to pony up; they certainly stand to lose if the ferry is
eliminated.-
Finally, perhaps the price of a ferry trip should be
increased significantly. User fees are fair because they fall
most heavily on those who use the service.
The ferry is a great service, both practical and fun. But'
somebody must pay for it. If it's worth it, they will.
If not ....




Letters to the editor:



AB's trash collection


schedule just stinks


To the editor:
I am sure that being a con-
stituent that resides on
Saratoga Circle, instead of
Beach Avenue, that my con-
cerns are probably not as
important as others.
However, I must compli-
ment you and your associates
on the city commission with
coming up with an issue that
will probably galvanize the
entire community by. the
Fourth of July.
Over here at our little resi-
dence on Saratoga Circle we
have a front porch, complete
with rocking chairs, that has
the most fragrant honey suck-
le vine next to it. During the
evenings, as our neighbors are
out walking their pets or stop-
ping by to chat, yes just like
Beach Avenue residents we do
that too, we have noticed the
stench of garbage cooking in
our newly supplied waste cans
placed adjacent to our resi-
dences.


What were ya'll thinking.
These things are cookers
when garbage is placed in
them, exposed to 90 degree
heat on a daily basis, and not
picked up for seven days.
I guess every seven days I
will add breaking out the
bleach and scrub brushes to
the list of daily chores I was
trying to avoid as I approach
retirement age.
I am sure that this cost cut-
ting measure was "well
thought out", and as a life
long resident of Atlantic
Beach I do not expect six day
a week garbage pick up as we
once had, but please. Maybe
you could drop off some of
those little hangy-down air
fresheners that people use in
their cars.
Make ours honeysuckle
please.

Respectfully, (of course)

Palms Presbyterian 50th coverage well done


To the editor:
I am writing on behalf on the
committee for the 50th
Anniversary Celebration of the
founding of Palms Presbyterian
Church to express our gratitude
for the fine article written by
Kathy Nicoletti which
appeared in the the May 4th
issue of The Beaches Leader /
Ponte Vedra Leader papers.
Ms. Nicoletti's article was
comprehensive, well-written


and clearly described the
unique history of our 'little
church which grew...' from 11
members to a congregation of
1200 in just fifty years. The
photos selected to, accompany
the article were particularly
illustrative and attention-get-
ting and so appropriate for the
article.
The Leader papers have been
supportive to the churches of
the Beaches communities for


years. We at Palms are grateful
for your continuing support,
especially as we continue our
yearlong Golden Anniversary
Celebration.
Again, thank you very much
for the wonderful 50th
Anniversary Celebration arti-
cle.

Do we understand what tax relief means?


To the editor:
Just think: who would ha\'e
i imagined 10 years ago that
Jacksonville would be elevated
to first-tier status worthy of
hosting a Super Bowl?
Certainly this would not have
happened if we hadn't
achieved the infrastructure and
quality of life improvements
that all of us enjoy today.
While the idea of property
tax relief sounds great, I won-
der if we really understand
what it means. For those of us
who have lived in Jacksonville
for the past several years, we've
been energized by the positive
growth of a city on the rise.
Chances are you play a part in
that growth.
This will likely change if one
of the current versions of prop-
erty tax reform is approved.
Basic services will be reduced
including library access, servic-
es to vulnerable people, crime
prevention initiatives, econom-
ic development efforts which
help bring higher wage jobs to
the city, and arts and culture
which in Jacksonville has suc-


cessfully spurred downtown
development, attracted tourists
and positively impacted learn-
ing and' literacy along with a
host of other dynamic quality
of life indicators. This is
because Duval County is being
asked to bear a much heavier
-burden than communities in
South Florida.
Art and cultural organiza-
tions in Jacksonville will be
severely impacted by this cut in .
funding.
Locally, the $3.75 million
invested in cultural organiza-
tions produced an economic
;impact of more than $131 mil-
lion and support more than
1,000 jobs. State-wide, the fig-
ures reach $2.9 billion gross
state product and more than
28,000 full-time equivalent
jobs. Art and Culture is directly
tied to tourism. Seven million
out-of-state tourists visited a
cultural facility or attended a
cultural event as a primary
activity of their trip to Florida,
accounting for $4.5 billion of
tourist spending. The arts and
culture industry contributes


substantially to the.successqf
two of the JEDC's main objec-.
tives: 1) to recruit and expand
higher wage jobopportunities,
and 2) to promote a healthy
and vibrant 'downtown.
Consider the potential for lost
revenues as fewer workers, are
retained or recruited due to a
perceived decline in the city' s
quality of life.
The proposed elimination of
service grants to the arts will
severely impact how arts and
cultural organization serve our
community. Programs will be.
cut and some organizations
may not be able to survive.
The members of our Duval
Delegation need to hear from
us right now so that they can
harness our concerns and share
them with the Governor and
State legislators. If we do not,
we will once again go to the
back of' the line while other
Florida cities flourish in the
phenomenal growth of our
state.

Automated trash collection presents issues


To the editor:
The new automated' trash
collection service that begins
next week in Jacksonville
Beach presents a number of
issues. These issues do not
appear to have been raised,
addressed, or communicated to
citizens, either by the City or
by our two local newspapers.
The purpose of this letter is to
Sask the City Council to ade-
quately consider, address, and
communicate on each of these
issues publicly, as a yardstick
against which the success of
the change is measured.
Current trash crews are able
to service both sides of most
streets with one pass. The new
service appears to require a sep-
arate trip for each direction.
This would appear to nearly
double each of the following:
Wear and tear on city
streets,
Fuel consumption,
Air pollution including
greenhouse gasses,
Risk of accident with other.
vehicles and pedestrians.'
How are homeowners on
opposite sides of one-way
streets affected.
The reduction in risk of
injury to trash crews has been
cited often as a benefit. Has the
comparative risk of injury to
citizens from this change been
examined. It appears reason-
able that seniors, petite individ-
uals, and others will.likely find


the new containers which are
taller and larger than the con-
tainers and trash bags in com-
mgn use today -- present signif-
icantly greater risk of injury
than current practice. This
includes range-of-motion
issues.
The workforce reductions
have been cited often as a ben-
efit. It appears 50% or more of
the current workforce now
loses their job. What is the
city's thinking on why this is a
benefit. From the parochial
perspective of a private-sector
entity such as Southland Waste
Systems the benefit is clear.
Labor costs are typically most
significant, and reductions
here quickly drive to the bot-
tom line. From the broader
public-sector. view, job num-
bers are an important public
policy concern. Significant job
losses such as these are typical-
ly front-page news given seri-
ous treatment.
SThe City Manager is quoted
in City Council minutes as say-
ing he does not foresee an
increase in costs to citizens in
the next few years. What is the
justification for this statement,
and could this outcome have
been secured without funda-
mentally altering the service.
What is the relation of this
change to the longer-term issue
of economically viable landfill
capacity. Is this a step in the
direction of throttling the pub-


lic's waste stream.
Overall, this appears to be a
case where quality of service
will deteriorate, risks. will be
shifted to citizens, and no clear
benefit will accrue to the com-
munity. The move seems pri-
marily of benefit in enhancing
the long-term profit potential
of the contractor. What is the
evidence to the contrary.
The current public relations
campaign supporting rollout of
this new service is certainly
upbeat in the face of these
issues, and this citizen is not
eager to rain on this parade. In
any case the new five-year con-
tract with Southland Waste
Systems authorized by City
Council over the sole objection
of Mayor Sharp last October
appears immovable.
However, the success of this
new arrangement must be
monitored against a recogniza-
ble yardstick. I ask the City to
scrutinize the new contract
together with these and other
concerns to construct that
yardstick, keep the public
informed, and terminate the
agreement swiftly should
expectations fall short of con-
tractual reality. I also ask the
Beaches Leader to do what it
does best: provide meaningful
coverage.

To the editor
The solution for the
Mayport Ferry is PRIVATE
OWNERSHIP! Remove all fare
restrictions so that the ferry
service can become a profit
making enterprise.
Mr. Meserve's quote that
approximately 400,000 vehi-
cles use the ferry service every
year (almost 1200 vehicles
daily) raises the question
why? The answer is because it
is within the economic inter-
est of the users. Even more so,
as Mr. Meserve points out, due
to the very sharp rise in fuel
prices. Private ownership
would be economically justi-
fied because virtually all of the4 .,
increase in total revenue
would become incremental
total profits and achieving
maximization of profits.
This result occurs because
the demand curve for ferry
service is very highly inelastic.
Therefore, even a doubling of
the current fares may not
result in any loss of users
because it is likely that poten-
tial users would be waiting to
replace the loss due to shorter
lines. Remember that the
ferry service is operating at or
close to capacity. Finally, the
above statements pertain only
to weekday activity. Weekend
activity would have a more
elastic curve because of a user
with a different purpose, busi-
ness versus recreation.
But, even the user demand
curve for weekend activity
would still have, an inelastic
demand curve. The logical
-.r~nieroecpnomic ., solution
would be a two-tier price sys-
tem.
No other solution exists.
Benefit-cost analysis would
reveal that the state is making
a poor investment with its
Subsidy of the ferry by calling
it economic development for
Mayport. None dare call it by
its real name: POLITICAL
PORK!
No mention was made as to
the number of days that the
ferry service was not available
due to bad weather and holi-
days. You many want to look
at the record for the past five
years.
What proposals were made
to build a bridge or tunnel at
this crossing in the past 10
years? It would seem to me
that. with all the veterans
holding public office in
Jacksonville and the beaches,
and with the expansion of the
Mayport base, that someone,
either military or civilian,
would have made such a pro-
posal. I raise this question
because Mr. Meserve put forth
the need for military use argu-
ment for keeping the ferry.
Ferry service in the United
States is on the decline as
remote areaS become more
populated. A bridge or tunnel
should have replaced the
Mayport ferry at least five
years ago-don't you agree?
If the military has a real
need to have a crossing at this
location, then they should be
requesting funding from
Homeland Security and other
appropriate sources at the
national level. Florida is fortu-
nate to have a new governor
who is willing to take on the
difficult task of cutting the
budget. His decision regarding
the Mayport ferry is absolute-
ly correct!

JB getting

new K-9 dog
FROM STAFF
With its former vendor
under the cloud of a federal
investigation, the
Jacksonville Beach Police
department has opted to buy
a new police dog from a
Pennsylvania kennel.
Police Chief Bruce
Thomason said a new dog is
needed to replace K-9 Bacco,
a 5-year-old dog that was put
into service in 2004. Bacco is
susceptible to heat stroke and
has suffered at least two in
the past three years,
Thomason said, so the
department's veterinarian
recommended retirement. ,
Bacco, once replaced,', ill
be given to ihis' handler,
Officer Morris Ingle. The dog,
used in patrol and drug
detection techniques, can
not simply be given away to
anybody, Thomason
explained.
A new dog is expected to
cost $5,500.
Previously the department
bought K-9 from a North
Carolina kennel, but an
ongoing federal investigation
at that kennel prompted the
department to look else-
where, Thomason said.

Local students spread the word and

bring hope to homeless children in Haiti


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Local college students,
founders of the non-profit
organization Lespwa
Worldwide, are continuing
efforts this summer to help
homeless children in Haiti.
Lespwa Worldwide is
named for the word for hope
or "lespwa" in the Haitian
Creole language.
"We are trying to bring
hope to kids that don't have
any," said UNF student Alex
Charles who is a Lespwa vol-
unteer.
The students were motivat-
ed to found Lespwa
Worldwide by their experi-
ences on mission trips to
Haiti sponsored by Ponte
Vedra Presbyterian Church,
said Jake Kimball, High
School and College Ministry
Leader at the church.
Lespwa Worldwide has
raised $17,000 since it was
founded in the summer of
2006.
The goal this year is to raise
a similar amount of money.
Since only a few of the stu-
dents active with Lespwa


attend local universities, most
of the group's fundraising
activities are concentrated
during summer break, said
Kimball.
Students active with
Lespwa attend the University
of North Florida, Flagler
University, University of
Florida, Florida State
University, University of
Central Florida, Georgia
Southern University, and
University of Southern
California.
The $17,000 raised in the
first year was used to help
build an orphanage in
Messailler, Haiti. When it is
completed the orphanage
will become home to approx-
imately 20 boys, said
Kimball.
Funds raised this summer
will be used to complete the
orphanage and be part of a
down payment for a second
orphanage in Port au Prince.
A mission team comprised
of nine students and four
adults returned on May 14
from a mission trip to
Messailler, said Charles.
While there they helped


with the
construc-
tion of the
orphanage.
They also

the local
children,
said Lespwa
volunteer
and FSU
student
A b b y
Lynch.
Earlier
this week,
Lespwa vol-
u nt-ee r s
worked at a
benefit din-
ner at JJ's Restaurant in
Ponte Vedra. Lespwa
Worldwide received a per-
centage of the sales and the
tips from the event, said
Charles.
Lespwa Worldwide 's
Summer Challenge fundraiser
will be repeated this year.
Many.of the students invit-
ed friends from their universi-
ties to partici-
pate last year.
'Facebook was
an effective
way to get the.
word out
about Lespwa
and the
Summer
Challenge,.
said Kimball
SIn all about
100 college
students par-
ticipated and
the funds they
raised were
matched by


corporate sponsors, he said.
The "challenge" is for stu-
dents to give up something
that they are accustomed to
doing, such as a trip to the
coffee shop.
This year's Summer
Challenge will run from mid-
June to mid-August. There
will be an event at the end of
the Challenge, similar to the
Lespwa Dance Party held last
year, where the students can,
bring their donations.
Another of Lespwa
Worldwide's goals is to raise
awareness here of the orphan
crisis in Haiti. The organiza-
tion's website is www.lespwa-
worldwide.com.
"Haiti is the poorest coun-
try in the western hemi-
sphere," said Charles. "It is so
close. It's only two hours
from Miami."
There are 1.2 million
orphans in Haiti and only
about 200,000 orphans have a
place to live, she said.

Season's second BFAST race Saturday


FROM STAFF

The second of this season's
three Beaches Fine Arts Series
sprint triathlons is slated for
Saturday, with about 350 partic-
ipants set to tackle the chal-
lenge.
Last month, strong winds and
rough currents forced cancella-
tion of the quarter-mile swim
portion of the race, rendering it
a duathlon with a mile run tak-
ing the place of swimming.
Will Pearce was the overall
men's winner, finishing in a
time of 48 minutes and 11 sec-
onds.
"It's a lot different because I
kind of come from a swimming
background," Pearce said. "I was
kind of disappointed because I
really like to swim.
"I didn't have to worry about
falling behind though, I was
able to hang in there with the
top couple of guys. I got a good
jump on the bike:"
On the women's side,
Kathleen Baldwin was first over-
all, finishing in 55:52. Baldwin
also expressed disappointment
that the swim was scrapped, but
said the key to her race was a
focus on fun.
"I just love coming out to the
beach at this time," Baldwin
said. "I just came out for fun. I
don't really care about the win
- I'm just out here for fun. I'm
not making a living out of this.
It's all just fun and I had a great
time."
Despite saying that the swim
is probably her best event,
Baldwin, like Pearce, made the
most of the bike ride.
"That's probably my best
event," Baldwin said of the sea
swim. "I do swim and ride a bike
a little bit. I'm not a very fast
runner, certainly not as good as
the girl that came in right after
me. I just had to make it all up
on the bike."
Baldwin won the event by just

Magic trick: Donovan reappears in Gainesville


ee old saying, "All things come to those
Swho wait," has never been truer. He who
Swaits, and waits, and waits.
But at last it's happened. The NBA's Orlando
Magic gave Billy Donovan his release.
The whole thing reminds us
of the old childhood song, "Oh,
where have you been Billy Boy,
Billy Boy? Oh, where have you
been charming Billy?
"I have been to see the pros,
but as everybody knows, I'm a
young boy and cannot leave
my [adopted] mama."
As this report was written, the
particulars on terms of Orlando
letting Donovan out of the con-
tract he signed have yet to be
fleshed out. But it appears -.- i
naughty Billy cannot seek REX EDI
another NBA coaching position PREI
for five years. And there's prob-
ably some cash involved some-
where this is pro sports, after all to make
things neat and official.
Donovan signed his Magic in good faith for
something like $27.5 million but it turns out
it didn't hold water with Billy. He must have
thought he signed that Magic contract on a
magic slate.


At a hastily arranged press conference on
SThursday, Donovan used words like "sorry"
and "feel terrible," to describe events that
unfolded over last weekend when reports first
circulated that he wanted out of his just-
signed five-year deal.
Last Friday he met with
members of the media as the
Orlando Magic's new coach. Six
days later, Donovan is again
coach of the Florida Gators and
is expected to sign a new deal
that will pay him $3.5 million
a season over the next six
years.
Florida athletic director
Jeremy Foley, who had already
begin the process of replacing
SDonovan, said the new con-
tract will offer the coach an
IONDSON option for a seventh season in
S BOX Orange and Blue.
For perspective, when Bear
Bryant left Texas A&M to
return to his old school, Alabama, he said he
was going back because "Mama called." That
can be Donovan's story another time.
While it's true that Donovan didn't matricu-
late there, the University of Florida became his
adopted mum. She called and what else could
Billy Boy do but answer.


We can't blame him. Shucks, the college
game is a lot more fun than the pro ranks. In
college, you have the bands playing and
school tunes sending chills up and down your
skeleton. "We are the boys from 'old Flo-ri-da,'
and that thriller they play when the team
comes prancing out are far more exciting than
any bass-heavy, hip-hop song the Magic could
come up with.
We know what other schools play to send
their faithful into a tizzy, but what is it in
Orlando? M-I-C-K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E?
It was a shocker when Billy Donovan
announced he was leaving the Gators to go to
the pros. Couldn't have been worse unless he
said he was going to Florida State. But even if
he had gone, things still could have been
worse for Florida fans. At least it wasn't Urban
Meyer, the football god of Gainesville.
We understand they have proclaimed a spe-
cial day of Thanksgiving in Gainesville next
week, with prayers and parades and such, with
hallelujahs, praises and offering to the gods of
the game, the television networks. This is all
weather permitting, of course.
Reports indicate Billy himself may even
speak if he's still there, naturally.
For sports fans in Jacksonville, this is the
most exciting news since we learned Byron
Leftwich is returning to the Jaguars to save the
franchise and lead it to the promised land.

Epilepsy not a reason to keep kids out of sports


oQm question: Dr. Smith, I
have epilepsy. Is there
any reason for my
mom o keep me out of base-
ball this fall?.

Answer: Epilepsy is, by defi-
nition, a condition of chronic
recurrent seizures, due to an
abnormal firing of the brain's
electrical wiring. Depending
on where this misfiring occurs
and how strong it is, different
types of seizures occur.
Seizures may appear in dif-
ferent forms, from a simple
alteration in attention to the
larger "grand-mal" type, which
is characterized by convul-
sions.
Epilepsy itself is not a reason


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


to keep athletes out of sports
participation. Severely limiting
a child's participation may


alienate the child and make
him or her feel like an out-
sider.
According to the American
Academy of Pediatrics, even
children whose seizures are
only partially controlled can
participate in sports.
Of course, restrictions may
be needed in some sports that
have extreme inherent danger
such as rock climbing or para-
chuting. A seizure during these
events obviously could be
fatal.
Football participation has
also gained acceptance in the
medical community.
Previously, individuals were
universally denied participa-
tion in football. The thinking
behind this decision was that


repeated contact might cause a
seizure, but this has not been
shown to happen.
Another area of concern
involves swimming. A seizure
while in the water could be
potentially fatal. Special con-
siderations must be taken for
the individual who swims.
The athlete should not swim
alone, should have a partner
trained in CPR, and should
have infrequent seizures.
If your child does play,
make sure the coach knows
about the epilepsy, and what
to expect. Seizures will occa-
sionally occur during a game
or in practice and can be
frightening for the unpre-
pared.
Remember that a seizure is


almost always a self-limited
event that requires minimal
intervention. Most important
is to protect the athlete from
injuring himself against near-
by objects, such as bleachers
or sharp covers.
A tongue blade or other
object need not be inserted
into the mouth. The idea that
the person will "swallow his
tongue" is simply not true.
Once the seizure is over, it is
common for the person to be
somewhat dazed, tired or con-
fused. Protect the person's dig-
nity for this can be an embar-
rassing situation, especially in
the adolescent athlete.
Most research has shown
that injuries related to epilepsy
are not common. Most if any


were typically related to cuts,
scratches and bruises that
occurred during the course of
a seizure.

cuss issues regarding sports, med-
icine and safety. It is not intend-

treatment by your regular doctor.
It is only designed to offer guide-

tion and care of injuries and ill-

Jazz series doubles up on talent


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
The sixth annual Summer Jazz Series dou-
bles its entertainment value this year, featur-
ing two national recording artists and a
regional jazz band at each concert.
The three-concert series, principally spon-
sored by the city of Jacksonville Beach, kicks
off Sunday afternoon at the SeaWalk Pavilion
with renowned saxophonist Warren Hill, gui-
tarist Steve Oliver and NightFall, a St.
Augustine-based jazz ensemble.
Music begins at 5 p.m. Admission is free to
the public.. 0.
"The idea was to take the series to the next
level," Marilyn Matejcek, special events coor-
dinator for the city of Jacksonville Beach, .
said this week.
"We're doubling the entertainment and get-
ting a bigger bang for our buck."
Matejcek has a limited budget when it
comes, to booking nationally known perform-
ers, but by paying "just a smidgen more," she Warren Hill h
said she could get two headline-caliber artists
for almost the price of one.
Thus, each concert in the series features two major jazz
artists. Michael Lington and Joyce Cooling head the
Sunday, July 15, event, followed by Nick Colionne and
Janita on Sunday, Aug. 19.
Another reason the outdoor concert series continues to
attract top-tier talent is because the performers are always
reaching out to other markets beyond their base.
Said Matejcek: "When'they play paid gigs, their fans
come. But this series gives them an opportunity to make
new fans.
"And we're not always trying to get the top names. We're
really trying to choose the best artists."
Hill is the best of both worlds.
Named "Woodwind Artist of the Year" in April by the
Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards, Hill is arguably the highest-
profile jazz artist the series has ever booked.
He has released 10 CD's since 1991, has charted numer-
ous No. 1 hits on contemporary and smooth jazz lists and


eac


started his own label, PopJazz Records, in
2005.
His latest CD release, "Pop Jazz," fea-
tures Hill's versatility, exploring his roots
in pop, R&B, funk, and jazz.
Hill's touring band is considered one of
the hottest in its genre. The group
includes Andr6 Berry, Ronnie Gutierrez,
Dave Hooper, Randy Jacobs and Michael
Whittaker.
Hill also is the creator of PopJazz.com, a
websit6 portal.
"Jazz listeners.are very unique con-
sumers. They are sophisticated and
extremely passionate about.the-imtisic
they love. In a sense they feel that they
'are part of a very exclusive music club,"
Hill says on his website.
A A saxophonist, vocalist and composer,
Hill has remained one of the most icnsis-
tently popular contemporary jazz artists
in his field.
Photo submitted Hill takes the SeaWalk stage at 7:30 p.m.
lines Sunday. Jazz guitarist Steve Oliver's "Radiant"
CD was considered one of the best of
2006. Smooth Jazz News named it one of the top-10 best
recordings in its annual end of the year list.
Oliver, who performs at 6 p.m. Sunday, was nominated
for "Best International Artist" and was the featured per-
former at the 2006 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards.
Oliver grew up in Northern California and began playing
in progressive rock bands before going solo and eventually
creating the one-man-band sound that has become his
trademark.
Oliver started to catch the attention of smooth jazz fans
in 1996 when he joined Bamboo Forest, a group formed by
percussionist Steve Reid of the Rippingtons.
NightFall's genre-crossing style has been likened to Norah
Jones, Diana Krall, and Bonnie Raitt. The group, which
opens Sunday's concert at 5 p.m., formed in 2004, released
its first self-titled CD in 2005, and its second, "Intimate
Strangers," in 2006.
The band features vocalist Christi John Bye.

Home remedies still work a t


We are taught to
"live with nature,
not against it," and
so many of us have already
started to tolerate more
insects, snakes, weeds, etc.
during the heat of the sum-
mer.
And, frankly, doesn't this
make more sense?
Don't think I'm trying to
change your gardening style
so that your lovely, well-
maintained yard is left to
the wiles of weed seeds and
bad bugs.
But I have been reading
up on more old-fashioned
remedies that worked for
ages and just might work
again.
Florida's summer climate
is certainly not one to be
taken lightly. Because of
high heat and humidity, we
are not willing to spend
much time on our yards
fighting bugs.
So. let's consider a few
remedies that you might
remember if you are my age,
or might have heard tidbits
of from gardening gurus
such as Jerry Baker or Gary
Allen.
Did you know that cock-
roaches love heights and
that by placing catnip on
top of your cabinets you
will keep the bugs from

your dinner plates?
Did you know that by
stuffing garlic pieces
between the planks of a
wooden deck, you will keep
ants and mosquitoes away?
Did you know that small
sachets of crushed mint will
keep sliverfish and flies
away?
Did you know that Thai
lemon grass contains cit-
ronella and by smashing it
you will obtain oils that
when mixed with rubbing
alcohol can form a spray
you can use to ward off
fleas, ticks and mosquitoes?
Did you that dried lemon
peels can be tossed into a


linen closet or clothes ham-
per and they will repel
moths?
Vegetable oil and liquid
dish soap can be sprayed on
all small chewing, scaly
insects. The ones it may not
kill are the ones whose
exoskeleton has gotten so
tough, the spray won't pen-
etrate their exteriors.
Did you know that a
strong blast of water from a
hose will send mary insects
elsewhere, perhaps from a
tender-leafed bush to a
waxy, thick-leafed one
where damage will be mini-
mal if at all?
Did you know that the
best way to eliminate fire
ants is to let the native ants
take them over?
The next best thing is to
use ant control products
such as Amdro at dusk, but
only a small amount just
around the top of the
mound..
Fire ants come out to eat
at night and they will take

FROM STAFF
If you missed the first
British Invasion, or want to
relive it, take a Magical
Mystery Tour Saturday at the
new TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse,
where a Beatles tribute band,
"The Revolution," will per-
form.
The Fabulous Four
wannabes will perform live at
a dinner and concert to bene-
fit The Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra Beach.
Tickets are $150 for a tour
of the 73,000-square-foot
clubhouse, cocktails, a sit-
down dinner inside the club-
house and preferred seating

General admission tickets
for the concert only are $30.
The Revolution, which has
been called the No. 1 Beatles
tribute band, has been hired
above other Beatles shows to
perform for Hollywood
celebrities.
What sets the group aside
from others, fans say, is their
fun-loving charm, profession-
alism and passion to enter-
tain. They have been per-
forming since 1988 as Paul,
John, George and Ringo.
For tickets, call 280-0614,

Matheson: Grandfatherly advice


Cont. from B-1
tions properly.
Did you know that many
of our more common chemi-
cals which are considered
safe to use by the homeown-
er will actually kill bees and
other pollinators?
Have you thought about
handpicking the bothersome
insect so that the blossoms,
on tomatoes and squash can
be pollinated?
Did you know that those
darling black and red-striped
grasshoppers that hatched in
clusters about a month ago


are now too big to kill with a
chemical, a spray of water or
a soapy mixture?
They are now juvenile-size
landlubbers that can reach 4
to 5 inches in length by July
and devour an entire plant's
foliage overnight. Cayenne
pepper, chili pepper, garlic,
bay leaves, rue, a strong
herb, boric acid, Neem oil,
citrus oils, eucalyptus oils,
moth balls, and cedar chips
are common products which
often repel insects. Check to
be sure they are not harmful
to pets. If you will be in the


woods this summer, be espe-
cially vigilant in keeping
ticks ways by using a product
with Deet in it. Companion
planting with marigolds
which seem to have some
form of a natural repellant
for many insects is a good
way to go. Vegetable garden-
ers have followed this prac-
tice for years.There are many
sites on the Web about natu-
ral controls of pests, so read
up on them. But many of our
grandparents also had a
wealth of knowledge about
this, long before the Internet.

Kudos to photography exhibit at PV Center


W hat is
art?
Tfh e
word includes
both visual and
performing n
skills, but the
visual arts until .
recently have
included only
paintings or -
canvas or paper.
Photographers
are artists, too. ALI
After viewing GARTL.
the works of ART SC
Anna Tomczak,
"Odes and Travels," which
opened last week at the Cultural
Center at Ponte Vedra, I have
gained a new respect for photog-
raphy.
Tomczak's works are not just
pictures of existing landscapes,
activities or people, they are cre-
ations of designs she has put
together, ideas on paper, and
accumulations of old and new.
These unrelated objects are
made up into compositions that
require thought, skill and color
sense to result in an original work
of art.
They are beautifully presented
and deserve acceptance as art.
Another exhibit of photogra-
phy, works by Bruce Bennet,
opened last week at the Center.
Bennet's photos are of his travels
in Europe and the U.S. His. pho-
tography of the Louve is particu-
larly impressive because of the
lights and shadows.
The colors of the sea at sunset
and the interior of a volcano
show skill and knowledge of his
craft. See these two exhibits
through July 14 at 50 Executive
Way, Ponte Vedra. Call 280-0614
for gallery hours.

'28 Weeks Later' at the top of the zombie pile


by SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR
Just four years ago, movie
fans were treated to a zombie
movie called "28 Days Later."
It was better than average,
with lots of character devel-
opment and many original
ways of splattering the
moaning, groaning undead
across the silver screen.
With such credentials, how
could Hollywood pass up a
follow-on, a flick not quite a.
sequel but that borrows
much from the -oiginatl.
It's in theaters now with
the ahemm) original title, "28
Weeks Later." It more or less
begins where its ancestor
stops, though the original
cast hasn't returned. "28
Weeks Later" arguably takes
the zombie genre to new
heights, though in no way is
this an A-lister.
The story begins with the
rise of a new disease, one
even worse than AIDS.
It turns ordinary people
into slobbering, ravenous

and/or kill those still normal.
Robert Carlyle ("The Full
Monty") takes center stage in
the early going as both our
hero and his wife, Catherine
McCormack ("A Sound of
Thunder," "Braveheart")
attempt to fend off the attack
of a seemingly unlimited
mass of the undead.
Either by accident or
design, they become separat-
ed in their rambling manor
i6ouse; darlyle dashes for
safety. He abandons his wife,'
about whom he later con-
trives a story about her
death.
To inject a human element
into the production (no joke
intended), Carlyle has chil-
dren who are on holiday in
Spain while England is being
ripped and munched apart.

ation in England and
America has apparently stabi-
lized, NATO forces have

to safeguard survivors and
prevent the spread of the
zombie disease should it
again arise.
Carlyle is reunited with his
children, and as youth is
wont to do, eventually set
out against strict prohibi-
tions to find their old home.
Surprise! Mom wasn't killed
in the initial zombie attack:
She's still lurking.
From here, things go
downhill. Cine matography.
handled, by rnrique Chediak '
("Ruleta"'), apparently doesn't'
believe choreographed fights
can be produced without
utter audience confusion.
Director Juan Carlos
Fresnadillo, who also con-
tributed to the screenplay,
apparently agrees with
Chediak. At times, the fight
scenes looked like bad "Super
Eight" film; at others, it's out-
standing. Why the bifurca-
tion is unknown.

Penelope Cruz shines in 'Volver'


by SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR
Ghosts and the supernatural
have always fascinated the pub-
lic. Tales of ghostly appearances
are legion, but mainstream sci-
ence gives them little credence.
Repeatability is one of the
keystones of the scientific
method, and apparitions, if
they exist, simply won't com-
ply with researchers' demands.
That hasn't stopped the
world's film industry from
using them in screenplays,
though, and "Volver" is a recent
example. It stars the stunningly
beautiful Penelope Cruz (once
Tom Cruise's girlfriend) in a
dark story of murder and lies.
"Volver," filmed in Spanish
with English subtitles, begins
with the 32-year-old Cruz
("Vanilla Sky," "Woman on
Top") discovering her beer-
swilling husband has been fired
from his job. Antonio De La
Torre ("Men with Guns") plays
the part to perfection, absolute-
ly exuding laziness. La Torre,
however, does have one inter-


est: his teenage daughter
Yohana Cobo ("El Comisario").
The interest isn't fatherly,
though, and he tries to molest
her. Ms. Cobo isn't about to let
this happen, and her lecherous
father winds up with a knife in
his belly. When Ms. Cruz gets
home and finds out what hap-
pened, she takes the death well
- too well, in fact, as does her
daughter. They react as if noth-
ing of significance occurred.
What follows isn't contrived,
but it's close. It seems Ms. Cruz
has been entrusted with the
keys to a local restaurant, one
which the owner is trying to
sell. He has business elsewhere,
and Ms. Cruz, having once
worked there, is tasked with
showing prospective buyers
around. For her, it's a Godsend:
There's a large freezer with
plenty of space, a spot where
her dead husband's body can
be temporarily stored.
As Ms. Cruz and her daugh-
ter have no income, they
decide, without the owner's
permission, to reopen the


restaurant. Suddenly, a subplot
kicks in, one in which the.
ghost of Ms. Cruz's mother
begins visiting family members
(loosely, "Volver" mean "The
Return" in Spanish). From this
point, revenge, or some might
say karma, begins to intrude.
The problem is, it does it so
slowly in this R-rated, 121-
minute film, one might be
tempted to pop a No Doze or
two.
"Volver" is directed by Pedro
Almodovar ("About My
Mother," "Bad Education") and
seems to draw fine performanc-
es from everyone. It doesn't,
however, make up for the con-
voluted script.
Though "Volver" is still in
theaters, it's also available on
DVD. View the trailer at
www.maniatv.com/video/volve
r-trailer. The film uses few spe-
cial effects so impact won't be
lost on regular TV's.
Should you see "Volver?"
Absolutely if you're a
Penelope Cruz fan!

even contains a dollop of

most undead movies.
Though it's relatively easy to
put up with bad acting or an
unpolished script, there's no
way "Super Eight-ishness" or
lack of original ways to zap
zombies can be excused.
Overall, "28 Weeks Later"
has clawed its way to the top
of the zombie pile. There's
much room for improve-
ment, though, and it's an
escapist theme this reporter,; i.
looks forward to seeing;:. ,

Now is the time to stop

procrastinating, start working


Wente Vineyards oldest continuously

operated, family-owned winery in Calif.


Potential buyers don't
come calling on Wente
Vineyards any more.
What's the use of making an
offer to a family now in its
sixth generation and with a
succession plan that would
make a Saudi king jealous?
In a business known for its
celebrated family breakups -
Krug, Mondavi, Sebastiani -
Wente is a standout as the
oldest continuously operated,
family-owned winery in
California, a point fourth-
generation Eric Wente is par-
ticularly proud of.
Mr. Wente was in
Annapolis recently to intro-
duce us to The Nth Degree, a
premium line of wine
launched in 2002. We know
Wente has a producer of
value-priced wines but it was
a label we remember from
our childhood days.
Started in 1883 when C.H.
Wente purchased 47 acres in
Livermore, Wente was able to
survive Prohibition by mak-
Sing parish house wine. Today,
as Mr. Wente explained, it's
cheaper for churches to buy
bulk wine off the shelf than
it is to commission a winery
to make sacramental wine.
Since 1883, the family
bought three historic winer-
ies and more than 3,000
acres of vineyards in
Livermore and Salinas val-
leys. More than half of the
chardonnay and sauvignon
blanc grown in California are
planted to one of the Wenfe
clones.
"The sauvignon blanc was
introduced in 1934 and is the
longest varietal wine gig in
California," says Mr. Wente.
Although Wqnte makes
decent, mid-priced wine, it is
particularly focused on its
premium red wine. The name
refers to a frequent comment
made by fourth generation
Philip Wente and his
nephew, Karl Wente. The
uncle complained that young
Karl, winemaker for the pre- ,


TOM MARQUART
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'
mium line, was managing the
wine to the "Nth degree."
The wine shows it. The
2004 chardonnay, cabernet
sauvignon and syrah we tast-
ed were delicious wines that
show special attention we
don't remember from this
venerable producer.
Compared to the regular bot-
tlings, these wines have con-
siderable depth.
The grapes are hand-picked
from the best blocks in the
estate vineyards. Mr. Wente
says these wines represent "a
chance to learn" more about
fine wine. Only 250 cases are
made of each Nth wine.
Here are some of our
favorites:
Wente Vineyards Riva
Ranch Chardonnay 2005
($13). Using grapes from
Monterey County, the wine
shows off broad fruit flavors
and good spice. Pineapple,
ripe melon notes with good
oak and a buttery texture.
Wente Vineyards
Monterey Riesling 2005
($20). Floral, varietal nose
with peach, melon and
orange peel flavors. An unc-
tuous, fleshy wine with a
trace of residual sugar.
Wente Vineyards The 9th
Degree Cabernet Sauvignon
2004 ($65). Extracted red
fruit flavors and a touch of
cassis, great concentration. It
can be enjoyed now, but has
good cellar potential.


Blended with 25 percent mer-
lot grapes.
Wente Vineyards The 9th
Degree Syrah 2004 ($46).
First released in 2003, the
syrah was our favorite.
Blended with 11 percent mer-
lot and 4 percent cabernet
sauvignon, the wine has rich
dark berry flavors, mocha,
spice and a long finish.
ZACA MESA
We grew fond of the terrific
wines made by Zaca Mesa
Winery during a recent visit
to its Santa Barbara facilities.
It's a beautiful drive into the
country, if you are ever near
this region.
Known for its pinot noir,
Santa Barbara also produces
some of California's greatest
syrahs.. There is nothing
wimpy about these syrahs.
Here are two great wines
we highly recommend:
Zaca Mesa Z Cuvee 2004
($16). We just love this blend
of mourvedre (a healthy 48
percent), grenache and syrah.
Blueberry dominates the fla-
vors with a bit of raspberry
and blackberries. Medium
body, good tannins and a
nice wine to pair with grilled
meat or pasta.
Zaca Mesa Syrah 2003
($16). Full-body, in-your-face
syrah, big and ripe tannins,
with lots of blackberry and
currant flavors rounded off
with a healthy dose of tan-
nins. A big wine to comple-
ment beef or lamb.
WINE OF THE WEEK
Plungerhead Dry Creek
Zinfandel 2005 ($19). Don
Sebastiani is buying grapes
and making a line bf wines
with odd names like Hey
Mambo and Plungerhead. If
the wine doesn't get to you,
the labels certainly will. The
wine is a decent value.
Certainly, a good dinner con-
versation or house gift.
Sebastiani also makes
Smoking Loon and
Pepperwood Grove wires.


Dear Jane,
There is so much work to be
done around my house and I
have absolutely no motivation
to take it all on. My last two
projects went terribly. What
'can I do to improve my out-
look?

Sarah Butler

Dear Sarah,
We hear you. There are so
many home improvement
projects that warrant a little
procrastination. Especially
those home maintenance and
seasonal projects that you
'know have to be done but you
keep avoiding because you're
too busy, uninspired, or afraid
to tackle.
SBut the truth is that many of
these projects get more daunt-
ing and difficult with time.
Delay can create not only more
work in the long run, it can
actually put a crippling grip on
your ability to start newer,
more fun projects. So how do
you get the procrastination
monkey off your back, get
those backlogged (but neces-
sary) chores done, and open up
your ambition again to take.on
what you really want to do?
SProcrastination is quite a
strong force; often it allows us
to ignore the most important
of priorities in lieu of doing
things we might prefer to do.
The good news is that there are
'tools to help you tame the pro-
crastination beast, ultimately
making you happier and much
more productive in the long
run.
Here are a few methods that
have worked for the members
of the Be Jane community:

Lists vs. Rewards: We like to
call this the "gold star" method.
When you were in school and
the teacher rewarded your


^ J f/N^. e Itrr
A

HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'

workwith a gold star, you were
often motivated to try harder
to get another one. So, apply
this same process to your own
projects. Start by listing every-
thing you know you need to
accomplish and then deter-
mine an appropriate reward for
completing each project. Be
realistic in the tasks you need
to complete and the timelines
you establish. Also, make sure
you actually reward yourself
after each task has been com-
pleted (that's the fun part).

Gradual Method: Another
method is to work on a given
project for short bursts. Since
procrastination won't vanish
overnight, you'll need to be
somewhat therapeutic about it.
So, gradually work it in. Start
on a project for ten minutes at
a time. You can even say, "I'm
going to work on this for no
more than 10 minutes." Set a
timer and when it goes off,
leave the project and go at it
again for another 10 minutes
and so on. This at least gets
you started and there's a good
chance that once you start,
you'll eventually keep going


until you're finished.

Do It Now: It's easy to con-
vince yourself that you have
enough time to accomplish
everything you want. But as we
all know, that window of time
closes all too quickly. So,
another method is that the
moment you think to do it, do
it! Don't wait around for the
right time to complete a task;i
take action the moment it
pops into your head.

Avoid Perfection: Perfection
is essential when it comes to
building a space shuttle, but
not so much when painting
your bedroom. If you're a bit of
a perfectionist it's probably
affecting your ability to start a
project. Learn to ease up on
yourself. Perfection in home
improvement is a relatively
unachievable goal, so don't
convince yourself otherwise.
The mistakes you make in your
present will always help you to
improve your future. If you
just can't help it, take a page
from modem management
theory: strive for excellence,
not perfection.
Home improvement tasks are
prime candidates for procrasti-
nation. From fixing that leak
to patching the driveway, proj-
ects are sometimes things we
like to plan for and dream
about, but take forever to actu-
ally complete. But by following
a few of the tips we laid out,
we know that you'll get one
step closer-one step at a
time-and before you know it,
you'll be done.
Get working and good luck!

Seven ways for



clean hotel stay


Most hotels do a good
job of cleaning.
Some don't, though.
Usually this is a problem at
the particular hotel, and not a
problem with the chain. And,
although stays at upper-tier
hotels with good names and
high prices will usually be
nice, even these hotels can
suffer from time to time with
cleanliness issues and I
know this from experience.
For a short time, I was a
mystery guest and performed
evaluations of hotels. I had to
check everything from
whether the security was
available to counting burned
out light bulbs at the
entrance. Unfortunately, my-
mystery guest experience
uncovered too little concern
about cleanliness and too
much concern with small
services most guests don't use.
As someone who still stays in
hotels frequently, I want to
stay in establishments that
place a high value on the two
"C's" comfort and cleanli-
ness with cleanliness rank-
ing highest. Here are seven
ideas that can help you have a
cleaner, more enjoyable stay
the next time your living
space is away from home ......
1. Check carpets and bath-
room
Check the tub, counters,
and floors, especially around
the commode, to see if they
have been mopped, leaning in
the light to see if there are
urine drops or stains on the
floor. Look at the edges of the
carpet, particularly at the
entrance, to be certain it was
vacuumed.
2. Check for bed bugs
Unfortunately, there has


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST

been a resurgence of these
nasty creatures and even some
of the best hotels have them.
Lift the covers and the fitted
or bottom sheet and look for
the bugs. If you see tiny drops
of blood on the mattress or
mattress pad, chances are, the
bed has them. Look at the
cracks of the headboard where
the bugs will sometimes hide.
If you find them, alert the
front desk and wait there to
show someone what you have
found. Then, consider moving
to another hotel or change
rooms.
3. Look around the bed and
nightstand- --- -
Is there excessive dust or
crumbs? If so, you might have
problems breathing. This is
often caused by dust and
mold. Hotel housekeepers
should routinely use a crevice
tool behind headboards to
keep them clean.
4. Check the air vents
Many people have problems
breathing in hotels. Do you
see any black discoloration
around the air conditioning

GIFT WRAP When buying wrapping paper, choose carefully.
I buy a beautiful yet versatile type so that I can use it for several
occasions instead of oeriPlus,-it doesn't get torn up sitting in the
closet until next year. I bought an off-brand "Old- orld-style'sil-
ver wrapping paper and used it for Christmas, a birthday and an
anniversary. Jill L.
SUBSTITUTE Dishwasher rinse agents help to get your dishes
cleaner and drier, but they sure are pricey. Fortunately, there's a
cheap alternative: vinegar. Here's how to make the switch to
vinegar: (1.) Finish using up any commerical rinse agent that
remains in your dishwasher. (2.) Then, unscrew the cap from
your dishwasher's rinse agent dispenser and fill the well with
white vinegar. (3.) Replace the cap, and run your dishwasher as
usual. (4.) Refill the dispenser as needed. You'll love the results on
your dishes and in your dishwasher itself. Lainie P.
MOVING Set up ONE room in your new home as quickly as
possible. This way, you'll have a quiet retreat, free of boxes. You
and your family will then have a place to go when you need a
break from all of the unpacking activities. Ken D.
SAVE MONEY It is more economical to use one large bulb
than several small bulbs. For instance, a 100-watt bulb gives as
much light as six 25-watt bulbs but uses less than 2/3 the power.
Ed B.
SUMMERTIME Now that warm weather's here, a great way to
save time and money is to hang clothes outside or set up a
clothesline inside instead of using a dryer. If you do use the dryer,
make sure you clean it after every load to reduce energy use. Vera

vents or AC unit? If you do,
ask for another room and
explain that there appears to
be mold around the air vents
that can cause allergies or
breathing problems.
5. Make sure there is a lug-
gage rack
Bed bugs are often found in
carpets, too, and if your lug-
gage.is on the floor, you
might just bring a nasty visi-
tor home. Request a luggage
rack if there isn't one in your
room. Besides the bugs, it's
easier on your back to have
luggage higher.
6. Remote cleanliness
One of the dirtiest items in
the room is the television
remote. Put it into a plastic
bag or use a Clorox wipe and
wipe the surface of the
remote. Clorox now makes
cleaner wipes in convenient
travel pouches and these
accompany me on every trip.
While you're at it, wipe down
the phone receiver and alarm
clock too.
7. Wear house shoes
Pack a favorite pair of slip-
pers in your suitcase and
always wear them at every,
hotel visit. Floors can often be
dirty, so having shoes is an
added layer of cleanliness.
..f you.make,a-good sweep of
the room and are satisfied
with the cleaning, and you
pack your slippers and Clorox
wipes, chances are you'll have
a pleasant hotel stay without
the worry about cleanliness
bothering you.

issues. To make your home

able.

It may seem counterintuitive, but BMW developed an engine that improved both. A magnesium and
aluminum engine block reduces weight, while Valvetronic technology manages valve timings and lift,
allowing the engine to breathe more easily. In the 3 Series, this means the inline six-cylinder, 230-hp
engine provides a blissful union of fuel efficiency (20 city/29 highway mpg)1 and performance (0-60 in
6.3 sec.)2. To experience first hand how great ideas like these live on to become Ultimate Driving
Machines, visit your local BMW center for a test drive.
