Vol. 44, No. 104


Serving the immunities of Atlantic Beac 'acksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Mayport and Ponte Vedra Beach since 1963


deadlinee for decision on ferry is July 23

Various officials with a vested interest in saving the St.
Johns River ferry will meet with board members of the
Jacksonville Port Authority to get funding to keep the
ferry afloat.
Mayport Waterfront Partnership Chair Paul Parsons,
Jacksonville City Councilor Elaine Brown and former
Partnership Chair John Meserve will meet with the
board Monday to convince them to take over opera-
tional funding of the ferry.
The Jaxport Board will vote on July 23, approximately
a month and a half before the ferry runs out of funding,
according to Parsons.
"If it doesn't pass on the 23rd, we're in trouble,"

Parsons told members at a Mayport Waterfront
Partnership meeting Tuesday.
The officials will present resolutions from various gov-
ernment, business and labor groups as well as petitions
which have been circulating throughout the communi-
ty in support of the ferry.
Parsons said that supporters will have "hopefully over
10,000" signatures on the petitions.
Fred Berley's private company Homblower currently
operates the ferry under contract with Jacksonville,. He
told the partnership members Tuesday that if Jaxport
funds the ferry, then it would be up to Jaxport to decide
who operates the ferry.

David Page, an accomplished
skateboarder, out into the surf.
The 13-year-old, one of Melisa
Page-Bailie's eight adopted chil-
dren in a family of nine kids,
takes it from there, riding a
wave to shore. "I am going to
do this more,"the teen said.


Catching nine perfect waves


"My dream was always to catch
the perfect wave. I caught three," a
surfing mom says of her three chil-
dren in a frequently seen television
commercial. Melisa Page-Bailie of
Jacksonville could, have said the
same thing Saturday but her num-
ber would have been nine.
An inaugural surf camp on the
Jacksonville Beach beachfront at
16th Avenue South offered good
waves for 30. adopted and foster
youngsters, all riding surfboards for

the first time. Included in the group
were Page-Bailie's six girls and three
boys -one hers biologically, the rest

Poor attendance is not just a problem in
Attendance problems at some of
Neptune Beach's city board meetings
sparked a discussion Monday about re-
examining how the boards function as
well as alternative approaches.
The city council Tuesday discussed
attendance problems and ways to mini-
mize staff time spent at some of the city
board meetings such as the code enforce-
ment board, the planning and develop-
ment review board and the board of
appeals at a workshop meeting.
The council wants more input from
board chairs about why attendance for
some members has become a problem.
Although councilors emphasized that
the boards are composed of volunteer cit-
izens, they said that attendance is impor-
tant for the boards to run efficiently.
According to the city's code, a member
may be removed if they miss three con-
secutive meetings.

State investigates reports of dead birds

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is investigating reports of,
,more,than .200 dead opr ._sick greater, shgerwa-:
ters, .a gull-like bird, since Saturday along
Florida's east coast. The birds have been found
from Hobe Sound in Martin County to South
Ponte Vedra Beach.-
Local wildlife rehabilitators, report receiving
numerous emaciated and dehydrated birds as
well. FWC biologists are examining the dead
birds to investigate the cause of this die-off.
Researchers with FWC's Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute are calling the die-off of
birds significant and have collected some of
the birds for testing. Initial necropsy results
are not definitive; however, preliminary find-
ings indicate starvation during the migration
process played a role. Additional test results
are pending.

"As only one species appears to be affected
and the sick and deadhbirds have similar symp-
toms, ;we, heliey the ,.seabirds.; ;re suffering
from the same ailment," said Dan Wolf,
research biologist. "In 2005, a similar; but less
severe shearwater die-off occurred."
According the Peterson Field Guide for
Eastern Birds, shearwaters spend their lives at
sea, well offshore in the open ocean except for
when they breed, nest and rear young.
The public can assist the investigation by
reporting sick, injured or dead birds online at The public is asked not to
handle birds and to contact a local wildlife
rehabilitative facility for assistance with sick
or injured birds. The online wild bird, mortali-
ty database is a cooperative program between
FWC and the Florida Department of Health to
monitor bird health.

Surf camp:

Continued from A-1
the state of Florida, helps foster
children find homes.
"We. had the idea about six
months ago of getting adoptive
and foster kids together and try
to give them a fun day of surf-
ing," said Daniel Terry. "I don't
think any of them have surfed
before, which is, really good
because it gives us an opportu-
nity to reach out to them and
show what we do every day. It's
fulfilling, and a lot of joy
comes with it. That's one thing
we wanted to try to bring to
these kids, at least for one day."
The camp's instructors, in
addition to the Terrys, were
professional surfboarders.
Jacksonville Beach Ocean
Rescue provided three life-
guards and an EMT lieutenant.
Cindy VanZant, who repre-
sented Parks and Recreation,
emphasized safetyy first" in
talking with the kids.
"I think this is great for
them," said lifeguard Damian
Harris. "Surfing can be a great
activity. The waves are actually
really good for surfing. I wish I
had been surfing when I was
their, age."
The instructors took the
youngsters out only so far.
"We're sticking more or less
to the inside, where waves
have already broken and where
they can actually touch," said
Daniel Terry. "We would never
take kids out to where they
would be uncomfortable."
Page-Bailie is president of
Florida State Adoptive Parent
Association, which supports
adoptive and foster parents.
"I think it's incredible. The
kids are so excited," she said of
the surf camp. "I've known

Volunteers from Ocean Rescue, professional surfers and other aquatics experts join Saturday in
an inaugural surf camp run by Rick and Daniel Terry for adoptive and foster children at 16th
Avenue South in Jacksonville Beach. The camp is sponsored by Family Support Services of North
Florida, Department of Children and Families, Jacksonville Beach Parks and Recreation, and

Rick Terry through DCF for
about 17 years."
Jim Adams is chief executive
officer of Family Support
Services, the lead agency for
foster care and adoption in
Duval County. Adams was
unable to attend because of a
family medical situation,
Robin Wilson of Wilson Public
Relations said.
"The philosophy Jim Adams
has is that-children who are in
foster care, especially these
kids, who all have had their
parental rights terminated,
they deserve every opportunity
that his kids deserve, that any-

body's children deserve. And
this is one of them," said
Wilson. "It's a little risky to
sign a release to put this many
children in the Atlantic Ocean,
but he thought about it and
said, 'I would have done it for
one of my kids. I'm going to do
it for my kids in foster care.'"
Wilson said about 375 chil-
dren are waiting for a "forever
home." Family Support
Services' website,,

need of a family.

Jacksonville Beach do not have
the same problem with com-
mittee member attendance,
according to the city clerk's
offices in each of those munici-
Neptune Beach is also look-
ing at internal ways to save
money. Minimizing staff time
at meetings would be one way
to save some money, according
to officials.
Volpe said that most of the
members on the city boards are
retired or work from home and
meeting during the day would
allow staff to incorporate that
time into regular business
Councilor John Weldon said
he was "fundamentally"
opposed to the idea of daytime
meetings because he said it
makes it more difficult for the
public to attend and the city is
still obligated to the communi-
ty ard to allow participation.
He recommended the council
consider changing the boards
from seven members to five.
Other suggestions included
allowing staff to work on flexi-
ble time and holding meetings
at around 4 p.m. Councilor
Eric Pardee said that most peo-
ple could make it to a meeting
at that time and staff could
work on flexible time, coming
in later and leaving later.
City Manager Jim Jarboe
pointed out that this option
would require a contract
change for some employees.
Another option Volpe pre-
sented was to eliminate the
code enforcement board and
replace it with a magistrate,
although this would cost the
city money.
"I like the idea of a magis-
trate," said Weldon. "It would
streamline the procedure."
But, Vice Mayor Harriet
Pruette said she was against the
idea because it would cost the
city money.
"We have to start looking .at
ways to save money and we
have to start now," she said.
The council requested that
staff further research all options
as well as look into the costs of
a magistrate.
They also decided to write
letters to the board chairs to
stress the importance of com-
mittee member attendance and
gain more insight as to why it
has become a problem.
The Council also discussed
outlining the various alterna-
tive approaches to the boards in
the letter so that citizens and
members can be involved as

JB codes chair balks

at ceding authority

to paid magistrate

Jacksonville Beach officials
Monday took the first step
toward replacing the city's codes
enforcement board with a spe-
cial magistrate.
The City Council voted unan-
imously to move ahead with the
plans to retain an attorney to
hear code related cases and issue
fines when applicable.
Neptune Beach attorney Tim
Franklin has thrown his hat in
the ring as a possible candidate
for the position if the magistrate
is approved.
"I . am very familiar with
the city's zoning, building, fire
and life-safety codes as well as
common field practices related
to same," he said. "I understand
the necessity for balancing the
needs of individuals against
those of the greater public
through reasoned process."
. Scott Chesnut, who is the cur-
rent chairman of the Code
Enforcement Board, urged offi-
cials to consider whether a "a
one size fits all approach" will
adequately address the city's
code enforcement needs.
According to Chesnut, replac-

ing the civil board with a magis-
trate will limit citizen participa-
tion and make it inconvenient
for people to attend the hear-
"The board offers the oppor-
tunity to participate in local
government," he said. "This will
not do much to improve the
Chesnut also noted that sever-
al of the City Councilors "rose
up from the ranks" of the city's
appointed boards and earned
the knowledge to make "good,
wise decisions" as an elected
Bill Wilson, a six-year mem-
ber of the CEB, said he supports
the appointment of a magistrate
which he said would improve
the lack of consistency and
expertise of the existing board.
"There is a lack of impartiality
in dealing with certain issues,"
Wilson said. "I think this ordi-
nance could cure that."
The ordinance allows for
additional positions as needed
to review such violations as

Shark bite may not have been

County officials were not
able to confirm if a weekend
injury to a child in the ocean at
north Vilano Beach was in fact
a shark bite.
Dave Williams, aquatics
superintendent for St. Johns
County, said Tuesday that if
the injury were a shark bite, it
would be the first reported
shark bite of the season in St.
Johns County.
"It is unconfirmed if it was a
shark bite," Williams said'in a
telephone interview.
Williams said a girl was in
the water outside her home on
North Vilano Beach Sunday
when the incident occurred.
Williams said the girl left the

water under her own power
and went to her home to show
her parents the injury.
Her parents then called 911
and the girl was transported by
emergency crews to Flagler
Hospital, St. Augustine, and
was later transported to
Nemours Children's Hospital
in Jacksonville, Williams said.
"That is the last we heard of
it," Williams said. He said
something other that a shark
could have caused the same
kind of wound the fin of a
surfboard, for example.
While this may be the first
shark incident in the county
this year, Williams said his
office receives reports of shark
sightings on a daily basis.

Letters to the editor:

Too many rules

for bicyclists

To the editor:
There has to be some middle
ground regarding the recent
editorial on how bikes should
obey all traffic laws.
If they were to enforce bike
traffic obeying all traffic laws,
do you really know what that
would mean? It would mean
that bikes could no longer
travel northbound on Strand
Street in Neptune Beach or
south on First Street in South
Jax Beach starting at Twenty-
fifth Avenue South. '
Bikes would no longer be
able to travel south on Beach
Avenue in Atlantic Beach or
south on Midway in Neptune.
It would mean all bikes would

have to come to a complete
stop at every block on First and
Second Street in Neptune
Beach. It would mean that
when all bikes come to the
traffic control measures on
First Street they would have to
go to second street to go
around. This is just to name a
Personally, when I'm east of
A1A my main focus is on bike
and foot traffic and I don't
mind, it's part of its appeal and
what living at the beach has
always been about.

Abstinence ed needs funding

To the editor:
Based upon a recent Health
and Human Service (HHS)
report, the shift of abstinence
funding to comprehensive sex
education funding is the worst
possible thing for the youth of
Northeast Florida.
Project SOS will lose much
needed funding that will elim-
inate their much needed serv-
ices in several schools in the
Northeast Florida area. Since
1993, Project SOS has taught
teenagers skills that help them
set boundaries, use refusal
skills, set goals, communicate
with parents, and avoid high
risk behaviors. In fact, since
federal abstinence funding was
made available to Project SOS,
the teen birth rate in Northeast
Florida has decreased 55 per-
cent! Are parents really ready
to turn the health education of
their student over to compre-
hensive sex educators?
Parents need to know that
.what is called "comprehen-
`sive" is really anything bi!'
According to the HHS report,
startling components of the
"comprehensive" sex educa-
tion programs for teens as
young as 13 include lessons
Advocating showering
together as a no risk activity.
Promoting methods for sex-
ual stimulation.

Conducting sexual role-play
on how to help a partner
maintain an erection.
Describing how to eroticize
condom use with a partner.
Suggesting teens wear shades
or a disguises when shopping
for condoms so adults and par-
ents won't recognize them.
Parents communicated their
strong support for abstinence
education, as currently funded
by Congress, in a recent 2007
Zogby poll. In fact, regardless
of ideological leaning, parents
from across America supported
abstinence education over
'comprehensive' sex education
by a-2:1 margin. The very top-
ics that parents wanted curric-
ula to cover are absent in most
'comprehensive' sex educa-
Parents need to know who is
teaching their students and
what their students are being
taught. Comprehensive sex
education teaches little about
Abstinence (risk.;-preventi ai)

I could say that I'm bowled
over, in a manner of speak-
The news (in the June 8
Leader) about the possible loss
of our only bowling empori-
um, Beach Bowl, isn't really
I believe that the stated con-
fidence of its managers in the
business's viability is justified.
There's the company's lease
until 2012. Beyond that, judg-
ing from the packed blouse I've
seen on league nights, there
must somewhere be a "knight
in shining armor" (Manager
Robinson's description of a
potential buyer) ready and
willing to keep the lanes open.
As a matter of fact, on June
1, we heard 'that a Tampa
developer wants to start a
combination bowling alley
and restaurant on
Jacksonville's Southside. Get
this, keglers: It would be
called Splitsville.
If there's a chance that yet
another bowling operation
could be created in town,
where there are already sevetr
al, it seems th'e ieed for one at
the Beaches would have
much allure for the entrepre-
The sound of bowling pins
falling is a fondly familiar one
to me.
I grew up on a New Jersey
street with a bowlodrome
only a couple of blocks from
our house, and my first real
employment was setting up
the maples there. As a pinboy,
I learned the importance of
getting to work on time and
getting out of the way when
the ball was crashing through
the "forest."
Some of our lineup, termed
"pinheads" by the disgusted
manager, would occasionally
fake out a bowler with a weak
delivery and a light ball, usu-
ally a woman. The pinboy, by
keeping his foot on the pedal
that raised the pegs on which
downed pins are set, could
cause the ball to bounce off,
leaving the pins standing. No
doubt pranks like this helped
spur the development of
mechanical pin-setting
machines that eliminated the
pinboy's job.
Since then, I've formed a
theory about bowling form;
i.e., a bowler's delivery reveals
facets of his or her character.
A case in point is my long-
deceased father. He rolled a
"straight" ball. None of those
fancy-Dan curves and hooks.
When I persisted in trying to
convince him that putting a
little "action" on the ball
would be more productive, he
stubbornly declined.
Finally, tired of my pester-
ing, he said with a grin, "I
don't like to do tricky stuff!"
Joke or not, I should have
realized that he would bowl
in strict accordance with his
honest, straight-arrow nature.
So here's a post-Father's Day
toast to my square-dealing

'Top Gun' inspired Mayport helo cmdr. to fly

"Top Gun" was the highest
grossing film of 1986, raking
in more than $350 million at
the box office.
The blockbuster action-
adventure starring Tom
Cruise as a maverick Navy
aviator also was credited
with causing a major surge
in Navy enlistees in the
Count Mayport Naval
Station Cmdr. Gary Mayes
among them.
During the course of a
weekend in 1986, Mayes said
he decided to join the Navy
:ifter watching a screening of
"Top Gun" and a perform-
ance by the Blue Angels, the
Navy's precision flight team.
"I've always been interest-
ed in aviation, but because I
wasn't in ROTC during col-
lege, I thought I had missed
my chance to be a Navy
pilot," Mayes recalled in a
phone interview this week.
"Then I found out I could
still join the Navy and fly
through its Aviation Officer
Candidate School."
Now, the commanding
officer of Mayport-based
Helicopter Anti-Submarine
Squadron Light 44 (HSL-44),
Mayes, has logged more than
3,000 flight hours in fixed
and rotary Wing aircraft.
Mayes and HSL-44 will
host the June dinner meet-
ing of the Mayport Council
of the Navy League of the
U.S. on Thursday at the
Navy base.
The Navy League is a 105-
year-old civilian organiza-
tion dedicated to supporting
the men and women of the
sea services. The Mayport
Council is one of 265 in the
When "Top Gun" came
out in May 1986, Mayes was

The job paid well, but the
work was "boring," added
Mayes, an Indiana native
who studied aviation tech-
nology at Purdue University,
where he also played foot-
"Purdue has its own air-
port and pilot program, but I
didn't have the money for
that," he said.
Commissioned an ensign
in 1988, Mayes graduated
from Navy flight school in
1989, earning his coveted
"wings of gold."
In return, the Navy owned
the next seven years of his
"My goal was to do my

seven years, build a resume
for the airlines or as a corpo-
rate pilot and then get out,"
Mayes said.
"But the Navy grew on
His dream to fly superson-
ic aircraft like the F-14
Tomcats in "Top Gun" was
not to be.
Still, Mayes got his chance
to fly jets and other fixed-
wing aircraft during his first
operational assignment as a
pilot at Naval Air Station
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Besides helicopters, Mayes
flew cargo planes and the A-
4 Skyhawk, a Vietnam-era
subsonic jet. He still consid-
ers it his best flying tour in

the Navy.
His next assignment was
his first of three at Mayport,
where he would climb the
selection ladder from heli-
copter pilot trainee to heli-
copter squadron commander.
Like all aspiring helo pilots
at Mayport, Mayes was ini-
tially assigned to training
squadron HSL-40.
He moved up to HSL-48 in
1991 and for the next five
years flew Seahawk helicop-
ters on and off frigates and
destroyers, the most
demanding decks in the
Just after his seven-year
mark, Mayes made his first
of two "Capitol Hill" tours as

a Senate liaison officer at the
Navy Office of Legislative
Affairs in Washington, D.C.
After thay 16-month
assignment, the Navy sent
Mayes back to school to
receive a master's degree in
military studies at the
Marine Corps Command and
Staff College in Quantico,
His first command assign-
ment at Mayport came in
1999 as an officer in charge
of a helicopter detachment
with HSL-46.
In 2002, Mayes was sent
back to Washington, D.C.,
for his second "suit and tie"
tour on Capitol Hill, this
time. as.jiaa .aide, to. Vice ..
President Dick Cheney.
The shore assignment
helped cement his career
"When you work. on the
hill, you broaden your hori-
zons," said Mayes, the first
person in his family to serve
in the military since his
grandfather in World War I.
"It made me more interest-
ed in staying in the Navy
and seeing how high I could
After two years away from
the cockpit, Mayes made up

when he was appointed
executive officer, or second
in command, of HSL-44.
The post was a precursor
to his current rank as com-
manding officer of the

at Mayport long when he
was tasked with a major tac-
tical assignment: officer in
charge of a combined

relief missions in the after-
math of Hurricane Katrina.
Mayes headed a seven-heli-
copter Mayport detachment
that performed search and,

and water drops in New

based pilots flew around the

Mayport helicopter
squadrons are not configured
for rescue missions, which
made their aerial feats all the
more impressive.
For one particularly dicey
rescue, Mayes was awarded a
Navy air medal.
"It was the most challeng-
ing flying of my career, and
the most rewarding," said
Mayes, a father of three
whose wife, Stephanie, grew
up in Marksville, La.
. Mayes was promoted to
commanding officer of HSL-
44 on June 1, 2006. He.over-
sees a unit of more than 300
sailors, including 55 pilots
and 14 aircraft. He is on
track to become a captain in
But as a' CO, Mayes says he
doesn't get to fly that much

"Top Gun" status, Mayes did
pilot A-4 Skyhawks, which
were used in the film to sim-
ulate Russian MIG-17's.
Also shown in the film
performing search and rescue
missions is a SH-3 Sea King
helicopter, the forerunner to
the SH-60 Seahawk, the
Navy's ubiquitous, haze-gray

trainee pilot, your main job
is to fly that aircraft," said
Mayes, now in his 20th year
of Navy service.

Package. The center of this

with two teenagers.
This package has many ele-

to see what it is like when
those cute little babies turn
into sweat sock-wearing, self-
ish, eating machines who like
to sleep 10 hours a day, stay
out past curfew, leave personal
articles on every available inch
of floor space and use the bath-
room like a pig would use a
mud hole.
Part of thisweekend will
include a phone call from the
high school office notifying
you that one of the teenagers
skipped third hour class. You
will then have to find out why,
sort of like a cute little scav-
enger hunt for the true facts,
and then do something about
whatever you found out.
There will be broken dishes
in the sink, one of the
teenagers will run out of gas on
the way home around 11 p.m.

gone to bed, the other teenager
will break curfew at least twice,
and you will have to spend one
morning cleaning up toilet

One of the ways Bridget Hawk says that she takes care of her family and foster children is to cook for them.

Hawk feeds more kids than most mothers

Bridget Hawk of the
West Beaches has
cooked meals for more
children than most mothers
ever will.
That's because Hawk has
been a foster parent to 23
children in the past three
Her cooking roots began
in a in a small Suwannee
County town of O'Brien.
Most of the people who
lived there did some form of
farming, Hawk recalled.
Like most of the women
in O'Brien, Hawk's mother
cooked large, country-style
meals known as "suppers"
that were served at midday.
Hawk's mother passed her

love of food on to her three
daughters, who all learned
to cook at an early age.
When her own children
were young, Hawk, the
mother of two grown sons
and a teenage daughter, had
learned enough about cook-
ing to prepare good food
while staying on a strict
She cooks with staples
from her pantry combined
with meats and vegetables
that she has on hand to

make casseroles and other
main course dishes.
"You don't have to buy
every ingredient listed in a
recipe to cook well," she
"It doesn't have to be dif-
ferent and expensive to be
Hawk believes that when
children eat good food that
has been well prepared at an
early age, they learn to eat a
variety of foods. Most chil-
dren will learn to like foods
other than hot dogs, mac
and cheese, and chicken fin-
gers if presented with a vari-
ety of choices on a regular
basis, she said.
Many of her foster chil-
dren were used to a limited
diet, for some mostly fast
food and candy.

Mealtimes are family time
in the Hawk household, and
she said she tries to accom-
modate some of the chil-
dren's preferences while
introducing them to new
foods while keeping the
meals nutritionally bal-
"Cooking for a child
shows them that you love
them," she said.
Hot dogs and beans and
grilled cheese and tomato
soup are lunch time

has been in her care has
learned to eat at least some
fruits and vegetables. One

adventures, both of the chil-
dren will tell you their cell
phones did not work when you
try to call them to find out
why they are not home before
curfew. This will happen sever-
al times during the fabulous
weekend getaway.
You will, of course, be talking
to other parents who want to
know if their children, who are
not answering their cell
phones, are at your home
sleeping in the basement and
eating your food. Some of
those children will actually be
in the house when their par-
ents call, and you will have to
find them, wake them up, and
send them off to where they
During this weekend, there
will be numerous requests for
money. The teenagers will want
money for gas, money for fast
food, money for a movie,
money for clothes, money for
haircuts, money for yet more
technical pencils for math
class, money for the summer
trip and money for just about
anything else you can think of.
During this fabulous week-
end, you will also be so busy,
you will not have time to won-
der about having that baby.
You will, however, be as tired as
you would be if the teenagers
were still babies. You will not
get any sleep, you will go to
bed hungry because there is no
food left in the house and you
may get a dent in your car.
Anyone interested in this
great package?

June 20, 2007 Ihe Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader Page 3B

Cabrera forgot he wasn't supposed to win

Tiger Woods hits from the rough at TPC Sawgrass during last.month's Players Championship. On'
Sunday, Woods and Ponte'Vedra's-yimn'Fryk tied for runner-up at this year's U.S. Open.

A ngel Cabrera. Somehow
it's refreshing to see a
S new name cashing in at
the big golf tourneys, the U.S.
Open being sort of known for
"unknowns" taking it all.
This year's winner, of course,
is not unknown outside this
country. Ask the fans down
Argentina way. But Cabrera is
not exactly a household hero
in these parts.
Still, the Argentinian showed
Sunday he has what it takes to
beat Tiger Woods, among oth-
ers including our own local
adopted son Jim Furyk, and
that alone makes him a cham-
pion even without a shiny cup
or check.
There was something about
the jovial-appearing South
American that reminded us of
Lee Trevino, the Merry Mex
(well, merry that is unless he
was playing poorly; then folks
were warned to take cover) and
it was good to see a new
champ arising.
If it weren't for the fact that
winning at Oakmont meant he
topped Furyk as well, Senor
Angel could have been
applauded by many fans here-
about. Except for the hero-wor-
shippers (including some
media members) who wept bit-
terly because the great Tiger
was actually relegated to run-
Good heavens! Doesn't that
South of the Border upstart
know he's not supposed to
come up here and humiliate
the Chosen One?
No wonder Congress is all in
a panic over immigration laws.
It's as though some foreigner
had sneaked in and hit more
home runs than baseball's
soon-to-be greatest, Barry
Bonds. Cabrera is from
Argentina, but next time it
could be someone from
Sweden, or Ireland, or
Tanzania, or Madagascar.
The Open is noted for such
upstarts, but those who broke
through in the past didn't spoil
thousands of worshippers'
Sunday by toppling Tiger
Woods. If you're wondering
whether second place bothers
the Striped One, you had only
to look at his face. It could be
voted Scowl of the Year.
Poor old Jim Furyk. Another
runner-up spot, but don't disre-
gard his talent. He'll be:back


_. .' .


and maybe there won't be a
hole of disaster like No. 15 that
ruined his string of birdies and
essentially sealed his fate. Jim
must have felt like he was back
home being thwarted by No.
17 at the Stadium Course.
Woods couldn't blame any-
body or anything for his down-
fall. He played the second
round like a beginner.
Senor Cabrera went right on.
He forgot he wasn't supposed

QB, or not QB? That

times for various equipment.
If you can not determine the amount
of power that will be needed, ask an elec-
trician to determine that for you. (If your
equipment draws more power than the
generator can produce, then you may
blow a fuse on the generator or damage
the connected equipment.)
Using a Generator
The primary hazards to avoid when
using a generator are carbon monoxide
(CO) poisoning from the toxic engine
exhaust, electric shock or electrocution,
and fire. Follow the directions supplied
with the generator. Every year, people die in
incidents related to portable generator use.
Under no circumstances should portable
generators be used indoors, including
inside a garage, carport, basement, crawl-
space, or other enclosed or partially-
enclosed area, even with ventilation.
Opening doors and windows or using fans
will not prevent CO buildup in the home.
The CO from generators can rapidly lead to
full incapacitation and death, but CO can't
be seen or smelled. Even if you cannot
smell exhaust fumes, you may still be
exposed to CO. If you start to feel sick,
dizzy, or weak while using a generator, get
Because you may have windows open to
get fresh air while the power is out, be sure
to place the generator away from windows,
doors, and vents that could allow CO to
come indoors. To avoid electrocution, keep
the generator dry and do not use in rain or
wet conditions. To protect the generator
from moisture, operate it on a dry surface
under an open canopy-like structure, such
as under a tarp held up on poles. Dry your
hands if wet before touching the generator.
It is a good idea to install battery-operat-
ed CO alarms or plug-in CO alarms with
battery back-up in your home, according to
the manufacturer's installation instruc-
tions. If CO gas from the generator enters
your home and poses a health risk, the
alarm will sound to warn you. Test the bat-
tery frequently and replace when needed.
Be sure to turn the generator off and let it
cool down before refueling. Gasoline
spilled on hot engine parts could ignite.
Store fuel for the generator in an
approved safety can. Use the type of fuel
recommended in the instructions or on the
label on the generator.
Plug appliances directly into the genera-
tor. Or, use a heavy duty, outdoor-rated
extension cord that is rated (in watts or
amps) at least equal to the sum of the con-
nected appliance loads. Check that the
entire cord is free of cuts or tears and that
the plug has all three prongs, especially a
grounding pin. Never try to power the
house wiring by plugging the generator

into a wall outlet, a practice known as
"backfeeding." This is an extremely danger-
ous practice that presents an electrocution
risk to utility workers and neighbors served
by the same utility transformer. It also
bypasses some of the built-in household
protection devices.
Future Considerations
The only recommended method to con-
nect a generator to house wiring is by hav-
ing a qualified electrician install a power
transfer switch. This switch must be
installed in accordance with the National
Electrical Code (NEC), which is published
by the National Fire Protection Association,
and all applicable state and local electrical
codes. Call a qualified electrician or check
with your utility company to see if they can
install the appropriate equipment.
For power outages, permanently installed
stationary generators are better suited for
providing backup power to the home. Even
a properly connected portable generator
can become overloaded. This may result in
overheating or stressing the generator com-
ponents, possibly leading to a generator
failure. Be sure to read instructions that
come with the generator to make sure you
operate it within its limitations for power
