You can renew driver's license at the Beach
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
You can now renew your driver's
license without having to cross the
ditch, according to the Duval County
Tax Collector's office.
The tax collector's branch at 1505
Atlantic Boulevard, which recently
moved from Atlantic Beach, is now
offering driver's license renewal, accord-
ing to a customer service representative..
The service started this week.
Duplicate or replacement licenses can
also be issued at the Neptune Beach
office. State issued identification cards
are also available at the office, which
has. a camera available to take pictures
for IDs. No appointments are available
and service is walk in only.
However, the office does not offer full
driver's license services and the nearest
DMV branch to take a driver's test is on
San Pablo Road at the northwest corner
of Beach Boulevard.
Two years ago, the state moved the
driver's licensing office that had been at
the Beaches for decades, prompting crit-
icism by many residents.
The tax collector's Beaches branch is
in Neptune Beach in the Tradewinds
Shopping Plaza. Its hours are Monday
through Friday from 7:15 a.m. until

Tracey Graybill walks to work everyday.
This, among other reasons, is why she
chose the Mayport area as the location for
her business, Atlantic Beach Barbershop
which opened in January, she said.
Graybill, who has lived in Mayport for
five years, co-owns one of several new
businesses in the area which is rapidly
expanding and developing.
In the last yeal, the area has blossomed
with several new businesses, including
restaurants, hair salons and a car dealer-
ship. according to Atlantic Beach's build-
In addition to new restaurant, includ-
ing a Dunkin Donuts and.a Cuban restau-
rant, many existing eateries along
Mayport Road are also sprucing up their
extenors with landscaping and awnings.
"I think it's going to flourish, [bit] it
may take a little while," Graybill said of
With developers quickly jumping at the
opportunity to purchase affordable prop-
erties, the area is slowly moving toward -a
new page in its history, planners agree.

Shrimp boats are considered a fixture at the historic Mayport Fishing Village.
The Beach Port Crossing shopping center is one of several new business addi-
tions to Mayport Road. A Dunkin Donuts and a Cuban restaurant have both
opened, and a tanning salon and pizza restaurant are anticipated to open soon,
according to the Atlantic Beach building department.
in 1998, a lot near Mayport could sell for
$8,000. Now, that same lot is selling for
$129,000, he said.
But, many still consider that an afford-
able price tag.
The location of Mayport both the his-
toric fishing village and the Mayport cor-
ridor's transportation benefits make real
estate desirable, according to Mark
Dilworth, of The Dilworth Realty Group
of Vanguard Realty.
Mayport also seems to offer something
others areas lack, partnership members
said. Mayport village has been described
as "quaint and charming" and the sur-
rounding area is comprised of working
class citizens who like it that way, busi-
ness owners said.
"I think most people want to keep the
charm and saltiness of "Old Mayport
Village" but want to make it more desir-
able for families, artists as well as tourists"

Business owners and resi-

seeing the potential.
"It's the last place at the

adding that a commercial lease
is much cheaper along Mayport

the Mayport Road area is such a

Although developers, such as
Vestcor, will be a considerable
driving force behind the
revamping of the area, others
said they think there is also a lot
of community interest.

that really care about that area,"

revitalization and it's quickly
changing. The exhibit, which
runs until July 14, was sparked
by a desire to capture some of
the old before the new takes
over, she said.

"Interact's main fundraiser is

What others are saying
From the Palatka Daily News
We did it to ourselves and Florida's Legislature is giving
us a chance to make matters worse.
Yes, we are talking about property taxes. When we
voted in 1992 for the Save Our Homes constitutional
amendment, we capped the amount of tax increases on
homesteaded property to 3 percent a year. We also creat-
ed a monster. Over time the taxes we paid did not match
the amount our newer neighbors had to pay for property
of similar value. The burden on landlords and other busi-
nesses became skewed. We paid the price. Goods and
services became more expensive. We could not move
.without losing our tax exemption. Since homesteaded
properties were not paying their fair share over time, we
adopted impact fees to get money for government up
front. It became harder to become a Florida homeowner.
Add the whammy of increased hurricanes and
increased insurance and fuel costs that resulted, and we
ended up with a slowing economy and in a special leg-
islative session to ease property tax burdens. Lawmakers
crafted property tax cuts based on the past performance
of local governments and presented a constitutional
amendment with deeper property tax cuts depending on
a vote of the people in January.
The legislative tax cuts seem mostly tolerable, but the
constitutional amendment is scary for several reasons.
The amendment, if passed, would let homesteaders
pick between two options. They could keep their current
exemptions or go with taxes based on a 75 percent prop-
erty value exemption on homes assessed at $200,000.
The next $300,000 of value would get a 15 percent
exemption. The amendment allows a minimum exemp-
tion of $100,000 for low-income elderly and a $50,000
minimum exemption for every homesteader. The catch
of the second option is that future property assessments
would not be subject to the Save Our Homes amend-
ment. Tough choice.
Also, the amendment would apply to school property
taxes as well as local government taxes. That is worri-
some. A free education is not free.
The amendment offers no additional savings for com-
mercial, industrial and. non-homesteaded residential
properties. The result is likely to be higher prices for
goods and services, higgeir rents for renters and fewevr job
The amendment also requires the Legislature to limit
tax increases by local governments. While this might
keep local governments from recouping losses through
higher assessments, 'it also is likely to cap the growth of
local government revenue at a level below the cost of
maintaining services. It is likely to prevent needed
improvements in various governmental services.
Because of another constitutional amendment that we
passed, it will take a 60 percent favorable vote to adopt
the tax-cut amendment, That is a tall order considering
the uncertain impact of this proposal.

Salivating for 'bawled paynuts'
was coming home from a busi-
ness trip to Ocala recently when
I happened upon one of those
little produce stands along US 301.
I'm a sucker for them, even if I
don't need homegrown tomatoes, .
fresh cucumbers, Vidalia onions or r
gall berry honey. By the time I
leave one of these highway garden
spots, my backseat is usually brim-
ming with stuff I don't need but
just had to have.
Anyway, I spied the produce
stand ahead and my car just natu- JOE PA
rally sort of slowed and nosed its GUEST CC
way in that direction. Then I saw
the sign: Boiled Green Peanuts.
Not just boiled peanuts. Boiled
green peanuts. To the uninitiated, there's a huge
difference. We'll get to that later. Being a
Cracker and, by extension, a connoisseur of the
legume that starving Confederate soldiers made
famous, I began mentally calculating how many
pounds of the delectable salty snack I could pur-
chase and still have enough cash to load up on,
homegrown tomatoes, fresh cucumbers, Vidalia
onions and gall berry,honey I didn't need but
just had to have.
The moment I stepped out of the car into the
torrid afternoon heat, the slightly tangy, yet
earth) aroma of sinmmenrng goobers grabbed me
by the nose and dragged me across the dirt park-
ing lot. At the far end of the produce stand was
a kettle half full of God's most precious gift to
Southerners and the bane of Yankee.palates
everywhere. I was standing there salivating
when a tiny woman in a checkered shirt and
faded jeans appeared at my side.
Which is Cracker for, "Sir, how would you like
some of these boiled peanuts?" I told her I
would love some but that I needed to reserve a
little cash for "sumemerematerscukesvidayao-
nionsangawberryhoriey." Delighted at convers-
ing in the mother tongue, Miz Checkered Shirt
reckoned that she could cut me a deal on the
peanuts, seeing as how it was getting on in the
afternoon and business had slowed. I settled on
four pounds and laid tracks for home, munch-
ing all the way. Shells and all.
Properly prepared boiled peanuts or bawled
peanuts, if you're from the Deep South, have to
be green, that is, freshly harvested. In a pinch,
reconstituted 'boiled peanuts
will do. These are dried peanuts
from last season that have been
soaked in water. They'll do,
much like having your tooth
pulled by your mechanic will do
S if you can't find your dentist.
Frozen bawled green peanuts
It's heresy to eat them from
S the can, although I facilitated
this sin once upon a time 30
years ago. My pregnant wife
ALMVER awoke one late, cool April
)LUMNIST evening craving.bawled -
)LUMNIS peanuts. I told her she was out
of luck. You can't Usually start
finding green peanuts till
around June. I pleaded with her to eat some
pickles and ice cream and go back to sleep. But
noooo. She had to have her dang bawled
peanuts. My wife's a card-carrying member of
GRITS (Girls Raised In The South). I knew trick-
ing her into eating the roasted peanuts we had
wouldn't work, so.off I went on a quest for the
Holy Grail of Southern snack food.
Around midnight, impatient, cranky and
sleepy, I stumbled upon.a can of Old El Paso
Boiled Peanuts in a Jiffy Store. I hated myself for
it but.it was that or crawl from store to. store, tilh
dawn if necessary beca use.myi `ife agd itplain
I'd better not come home empty handed. She
attacked that can.of peanuts like her life and
that of our unborn son depended on it, ate half
a handful, then looked at me accusingly and
said, "Yuck! These things are gross!" She tossed
the rest and went to sleep whimpering.
When I was a kid, we used to buy green
peanuts by the bushel. Mama would boil them
good and hard, then tum the burner to low and
let them simmer most of the day. Then she'd
turn off the burner and leave them to steep in
their brine solution all night. The next morning,
my little brother and I would pack them in
small paper bags, stack them in cardboard box
tops from the Piggly Wiggly and tote them all
over town selling the bags of bawled peanuts for
a dime apiece.
I can still hear those old guys in the barber
Which is Southernfor, "Hey boy, got any of
those boiled peanuts today?"

To the editor:
Don't you just love Ponte Vedra. For years
and years they have wanted to have a Ponte
Vedra High School. They wanted it so badly
some were even willing to sacrifice the Guana
Wildlife Preserve for a site. Then with total dis-
regard for the people living in Dolphin Cove
some wanted to put it behind Talbot's, despite
the fact that the site was too small.
Now they have a site and the school in under
construction. Are they saying 'Thank You
Lord' for our Ponte Vedra High School, a school
named for us, a school whose athletics and
scholars can finally bring fame and recognition
to Ponte Vedra? Not exactly. A few, well mean-
ing souls, want to name it The Ebby LeMaster
High School rather than Ponte Vedra High
I knew Ebby. LeMaster for over 25 years.
When I wrote for the local newspaper in the
late 80's he would call me at 8 a.m. on a
Saturday to comment on what I had written.
He was funny, pointed, and gracious, even in
disagreement. He loved Ponte Vedra, but was
just as able to laugh at their foibles, as protect
I can image him saying, with a twinkle in his
eye, "Well Mary, it is in Palm Valley, I suppose
you want it named Palm Valley High School?"
Then we would both laugh.
One of the things that irritated both of us,
was the TPC announced, as being held in
Jacksonville. After many complaints, they gra-
ciously stated it was located in Ponte Vedra.
One last reminder, whenever Nease won a
Championship, Nease was located in either St.
Augustine or in St. John's County. Now we
won't care where they locate it, cause it will be
known as the Ponte Vedra High School. I
think Ebby would like that.

Ponte Vedra Beach
School will always be identified as Ponte Vedra HS
To the editor:
Regardless of how much some would like
another name for the new high school, it will
always be known as the Ponte Vedra Beach High
Over the years, many fine young people will be
proud to say, "I am a graduate of the Ponte Vedra
Strangers will not have to ask, "Where is that?"
As a result of the achievements of Mr. LeMaster
and the work of many other long-term, dedicat-
ed community servants, Ponte Vedra is known
around the world.
LeMaster Drive was so named to honor his
many contributions to the community and will
stand forever too remind others of his work.
From what I can learn about him, I believe he
would want the school named for the communi-
ty he served and not for the contributions of one
Oddly enough, the contributions our fine edu-
cators make every day are rarely recognized with
such great honors. It is equally true most of the
educators in our society have been women but
few have been recognized.
Women and especially mothers are the part of
our population that has made the greatest contri-
butions to the schools in Ponte Vedra Beach with
little thanks or recognition.
If we just have to give the school another
name, let's name it to honor a woman the part
of our community that deserves so much for
their unparalleled contributions but are rarely
considered in the naming of roads, bridges and

To the editor:
Many of us who have lived
most of our lives in the Ponte
Vedra or Palm Valley area cer-
tainly agree that our new high
school should be named after
Edward B. LeMaster.
Ebbie was the backbone of
this community since his hon-
orable discharge from the Air
Force after the Korean War, and
he spent over 50 years working
for the Ponte Vedra community.
When Ebbie started working
for the Ponte Vedra Community
his father Joe LeMaster, was the
President of the corporation.
Life must have been pretty
tough working for his Dad.
Ebbie stared at the bottom of
the corporate ladder and worked
his way up. In 1959, Joe
LeMaster was needed back in
the mortgage business with the
parent corporation, Stockton,
Whatley, Davin & Co. My
father became President of the
Ponte Vedra Corp. and in 1960
he recommended Ebbie for the
job. Ebbie remained President
until 1972, when he resigned
over the incorporation issue.
General American Oil, the par-
ent company by then did not
like the idea of incorporation
and Ebbie did. He was then
selected by Charles Frazer of
Hilton Head fame to be
President of all Charles Frazier's
Resorts. Ebbie never moved
from Ponte Vedra. His office
became Amelia Island, but his
home remained in Ponte Vedra.
SNothing happened in Ponte
Vedra that did not have Ebbie's
One of the most important
issues that has ever faced Ponte
Vedra was the removal and
rerouting of A1A. For those who
don't know A1A ran right along
the beach, presently Ponte
Vedra Blvd. and was moved to
its present location. Ebbie
worked fulltime on helping this
to be accomplished. Otherwise,
the whole character of Ponte
Vedra would be quite different.
Some of your readers I'm
,rei op not remember The
Oasis ijst south of the present
ayLodg. TheOasis was a\'ery
popular beer and hamburger
establishment, but not very
desirable in the middle of a resi-
dential resort. On Sundays
there was always a band or
combo that created high traffic
volume, and weaving motorcy-
cles and cars. Ebbie almost sin-
gle handed was able to negotiate
the purchase of this establish-
Another of Ebbie's greatest
achievements was the establish-
ment of a zoning board for the
Ponte Vedra area. This Board
has been in the past and
remains a very strong voice in
controlling unwanted develop-
ment in our residential commu-
Ebbie helped establish the
first school in our community,
The Ponte Vedra Palm Valley
School in 1958 and was later
appointed to the St. Johns
County Board of Public
Instruction. He served on the
board of. The St. Johns/
Educational Foundation, asa
trustee of Episcopal High School
and as a trustee- 6f the
University of Florida Marine
Laboratory at Seahorse Key.
When the present Landrum
Middle School was named,
LeMaster was one of the names
put forth. Ebbie graciously with-
drew his name from considera-
tion so that it could be named
after long time community ser-
vants, Roy and Alice Landrum.
In 1946 Stockton, Whatley,
Davin & Co. received an option
on what is now the Guana State
Park, one of Ebbie's involve-
ments was between the state
and the company concerning
this vital piece of real estate. In
1958 the state built the dam on
The Guana and because of this
they received a long term lease
so the public could hunt and
fish the lake and most of the
uplands. Ebbie coordinated this
involvement until the state pur-
chased this property in 1983.
When Herb Peyton purchased
Ponte Vedra Inn & Club he
asked Ebbie to be a consultant
for The Ponte Vedra
Corporation and he remained
in this position until his death
in November 2005. During the
latter part of Ebbie's life he tack-
led the problems of the commu-
nity as he had always done with
enthusiasm, aggressive good
humor and in the best interest
of the entire community.
It would be just wonderful if
we could name our new High
School after Ebbie LeMaster in
recognition of all that he has
done for the Ponte Vedra area.

games, sometimes just once a
I mean, it's not like they
have to toil in a cubicle for 40
hours, pass a bag of soft tacos
through a window to a car or
dig irrigation ditches for hun-
dreds of yards.
Millions of kids around the
world admire them, trying to
mimic their moves in the
front yard, collecting every.
rookie card they can find and
pinning up a poster right next
to the one of Jessica Simpson.
These guys don't have it so
rough. They make more
money than most of us dream
of, live in houses that typical-
ly rest along Dune Road in
the Hamptons and drive a
fleet of cars that should be in
the Barrett-Jackson Auctiop.
Some athletes are grea4,Siti-
zens. Guys like Tiger Woods,
LeBron James and Jeff Gordon
(despite the incident last
week) all brought new lives
into the world last week.
These three never show up in
the headlines for reasons
other than winning, leader-
ship and starting families.

athletes that live the Thug

of second and third chances,

In the 15th
Beach Lifeguard Challenge,
lifeguards from surrounding
areas came together for an
afternoon of competition and a
chance to showcase what their
jobs are all about.
With 13 teams competing
against one another in six
events ranging from swimming
to running, these athletes had
an opportunity to demonstrate
some of the skills unique to

from Jacksonville Beach,
Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach,
Hannah Park, Femandina
Beach and Daytona Beach.
Jacksonville Beach had four
teams in the field, Atlantic
Beach fielded two teams, while
the remaining locales each
fielded one team composed of
their finest lifeguards.
"This is a chance to show-
case what we do on a daily
basis," John Phillips, captain of
the Atlantic Beach Lifeguards
said. "We use these devices all
the time in lifesaving situa-
tions. We're always swimming,
always running. We use pad-
dleboards to get out through
the surf a little faster."
Like most athletes, lifeguards
go through physical training
for their jobs.
"We all need to do physical
training throughout the sum-
mer to remain in shape,"
Phillips said. "We need to for

competitors jump up and run

opponents diving over each

Beach volleyball continues Saturday
The second tournament of
this year's beach volleyball
season, the First Coast
Summer Blast, is scheduled to
take place all day Saturday in
It's been a month since
Jacksonville Volleyball Club's
last event, the Mike
Tournament, and competitors
are likely to be anxious to take
to the sand once again.
The Highsmith tournament
drew to a close in May after a
10-year run. The event helped
friends and family celebrate
the life of Highsmith, a surfer
turned top professional volley-
ball player who died at the age
of 31 following a low-speed
dirt bike accident in Colorado.
A number of Highsmith's
contemporaries, many of
whom followed the popular
Jacksonville Beach bartender's
lead in becoming pro beach
volleyball players, participated
in the Legends portion of last
month's season-opening tour-
In other divisions, the duo
of Ole Juve and Andy
Mignerey won the Men's
Open classification. The team
of Kent Ammons and Scott
Perry finished as runner-up.
In the Women's Open divi-
sion, perennial winners Jill
Cox and Robin Mignerey
teamed to top Brittany O'Neil
and Julie Taurey in the final.
In addition to being the
tenth and final Highsmith
Memorial event, the tourna-
ment was taped for broadcast
by Comcast Cablevision.
Following this weekend's
beach volleyball tournament,
local players will get a long
break before action returns to
the sand with another First
Coast Summer Blast slated for
Saturday's event will be
played on the beachfront at
4th Avenue North, just south
of the Jacksonville Beach Pier.
In addition to Men's Open
and Women's Open divisions,
there will also be a juniors
classification of play.
Pool play begins at 9 a.m.
with finals in the afternoon.

body. That's the secret. That's
all that exercise is. You don't
need new shoes or a fancy
new Nike suit to start exercis-
ing. Nor do you need an all
inclusive plan that outlines
your workouts for the next
three months. All you need
to do is get up and move
your body and you will be
on your way to a healthier
All it takes is to ignore the
infamous string of excuses
that get in the way. As soon
as you start to think that you
just don't have enough time
to get in a workout, throw
your favorite song on and
dance around the room. Curl
the gallon of milk in the
fridge. Jump on the bed. Sure
you'll feel silly, and honestly
you'll probably look silly too,
but I guarantee you'll feel
and look better than if you
brush off exercising and sit
down with a bowl of pop-
, Don't get me wrong, as a
trainer I think that'well-
rounded exercise is very
important. As soon as you
really commit to living an
active lifestyle, it is necessary
to plan ahead in order to
incorporate exercise into
daily life but, personally, I
hate routines. They bore me.
Even the programs I design
for my clients who train with
me several times a week are
all different. Sure, we may
repeat the same exercise over
again, but it is very rare that
I will repeat the same work-
out. Variety is good for your
body and your mind.
For me, Imake it a priority
everyday simply to be active
for at least an hour. Then I
get a workout in and I'm not
locked into anything that I
don't feel like doing. I could
weight train with a friend,
swim on the beach or run a
few sprints without feeling
like I am messing up'what I
am "supposed" to be doing
If you are more of a rou-
tine person, that's great too,
just be sure it's not your rou-
tine to wait for that perfect
moment which never really
comes to launch your plan.
I run into so many people
who are stuck in the tomor-
row groove. Like a broken
record they constantly put
off starting their routine
until tomorrow turns into a
week gone by. Then a
month. Then a year. That
reunion goes by that they
wanted to lose ten pounds
for. Before they know it's the
New Year. Again. Slowly, by
procrastinating, they see
themselves decline physically
which, in turn sets them
back mentally and makes
starting again even harder.
If you are one of those
tomorrow people and you are
sitting down reading this
right now, stop and do 25
jumping jacks. I'm not kid-
Now imagine if you did
that every time you came up
with an excuse to not work
out or wished you were fitter.
Before long you would notice
your pants getting looser and
your muscles getting tighter.
So, next time you find your-
self fishing for an excuse, just
start moving before you can
come up with one and you
are well on your way to a

"Credit Card Users Are
Paying Too Much..."
FREE Report Reveals How To
Save Thousands Of Dollars On
Unnecessary Interest Payments.
Homeowner's with substantial
credit card debts are missing
important savings opportunities
for failing to act immediately.
Unknown to most financial
planners and CPA's, this FREE
Consumer Report reveals how to
save thousands in unnecessary
interest payments and finance
"Unbelievable", said one
homeowner, "I can't believe how
this simple little trick is able to
save me thousands of dollars a
year." Banks and credit card
companies hope you never read
this Report because they want to
keep charging you interest on a
balance that will'take more than
30 years to pay off! Consumers
have been fooled by offers of low
teaser rates to induce them to
transfer balances, only to see
their rates double or triple a few
months later. This Report
explains how to avoid being
tricked by the tactics of these
large credit card companies and
how to turn the table so you get
the interest, not them.
NOTE: The revised version of
this Reportwas recently released
and the response has been
overwhelming. A toll-free 24/7
recorded message hotline has
been setup to handle the
expected volume, but you are
urged to call right away.
Quantities are limited.

Carl Miller was riding
the Mayport ferry one
day last fall when his
keen photographer's eye
caught sight of more than a
dozen shrimp boats lined up
at a nearby dock.
Camera in hand, Miller
started snapping shots of the
boats sitting idle on the St.
Johns River, waves rippling
out from the ferry slapping
their sturdy steel hulls.
It was an epiphany of sorts
for Miller, a longtime free-
lance photographer based in
"I was coming back from
shooting a job at Amelia
Island and I thought to
myself, 'I should start shoot-
ing some pictures down
here,' Miller recalled this
week in a phone interview.
"Now I know almost all
those boats in the lineup by
name. I know their captains.
I know their stories."
For nearly a year, Miller
has been chronicling the
quaint fishing village of
Mayport through the lens of
his digital camera.
The upshot: "Mayport: A
disappearing fishing village"
opens Monday at First Street
Gallery, 216-B First St., in
Neptune Beach. The photo
exhibit runs-through-Sept. 2.

It's mix of classic rock, soft

Pearl, however, was not
driven to put his life on the

the infamous shoe-bomber,
when he was kidnapped on
Jan. 23, 2002, in Karachi,
His headless body was
found weeks later in a shal-
low grave outside Karachi.
His corpse had been cut into
10 pieces, the book says.
At the time of death, Pearl
was The Journal's new

The assignment was a risky
endeavor that placed the

The old fish house in Mayport has seen better days.
Miller: 'All Mayport shows up' for shrimp boats
Cont. from B-1
"To me a camera is a cam-
era. Equipment doesn't make
the photographer. I carried a
film camera on the Mayport
shoots, but never used it."
Miller said he shot so

Choosing 25 to 30 prints
for the photo exhibit was a
tormenting task, Miller said.
The keepers include images
of fishing vessels, old and
new, landmark buildings in
various states of disrepair
and poignant portraits, such
as that of fifth-generation
shrimper Samuel W. Everett,
who, Miller said, had never
had his picture taken.
"Originally, I thought I
was just going to take pic-
tures. of buildings and boats,
but I ended up taking a lot
of portraits of people. That's
what Mayport really is,"
"All Mayport shows up
when a shrimper comes in."
Miller visited the heading
tables where fresh shrimp are
processed for market and a
business where shrimp nets
are made by hand.
He talked to boat captains
and deck hands about their
fading trade and restaurant
arid shop owners about for-
mer businesses that have
gone by the wayside in

about the village's vanishing
One image Miller didn't
record still haunts him.
It was the scene of a
shrimp boat tied up at a
dock with Strickland's
seafood restaurant and the
historic Mayport lighthouse
in the background.
Strickland's was bulldozed
within the past year.
"Knowing what I do now, I
would have shot even
more," Miller added.
"But this is just the begin-
ning. I'm going to keep
shooting out there. It's just
too interesting. I just docu-
ment what I see."

Franchise appears to peak in 'Shrek 3'
by SARAH LINWOOD
Who would believe an ugly
green ogre, in reality, repre-.
sents dollar signs of enor-
mous magnitude? Apparently,
the folks at Dreamworks
Pictures, as recently-released
"Shrek 3" has exceeded box
office expectations. Though
the two previous "Shreks"
were runaway successes and
deserved it "Shrek 3" simply
doesn't rate with its ancestors.
Happily, "Shrek 3" is still
Its PG rating means it's OK
for kiddies, but adults won't
find it nearly as engaging as
its predecessors. Despite
many flaws, it's animation
As the flick opens, Shrek
(again voiced by Mike Myers
of "Saturday Night Live" and
"Austin Powers" fame) is faced
with a dilemma. King Harold
(John Cleese, "A Fish Called
Wanda") is on his death bed.
To everyone's surprise, he
names Shrek heir. This the
giant green ogre doesn't
desire, and for some reason,
both he and his fellows feel
the only suitable replacement
is Justin Timberlake ("Edison,"
band member of 'N Sync).
Eddie Murphy of "Trading
Places", again playing
Donkey, and Antonio
Banderas ("Legend of -Zorro,"
Spy Kids 3D") go trekking
with Shrek to track down
their elusive prey.
Meanwhile, back in the
mythical land of "Far, Far
Away," disaster has struck. A
coup d'etat engineered by
Rupert Evert ("Boston Legal,"
"Chronicles of Narnia") has
seized power and imprisoned
Shrek's Wife, Snow White,
Sleeping Beauty and many
others. Exactly how things are
set right is the movie's crux.
Though the storlline and
script were entrusted to four
veteran writers, Jeffrey Price
("Who Framed Roger
Rabbit"), Peter S. Seaman
(again "Who Framed A
Roger Rabbit"), Jon Zack
("The Perfect Score") and
Howard Gould ("Mr.

"Hostel: Part II" is rated R

scenes of torture and bloody
violence, terror, nudity, sexu-

that covers everything, but

Cirque du SoleiVs mash-up Beatles tribute is better than it should be Recycle Thls
By STEVE BAILEY.
-.--.... .... .. :E IEWVER .
Saturday marks the first
anniversary of the premiere of
LOVE, Cirque du Soleil's
Beatles tribute now perform-
ing in Las Vegas .
The multi-media show will
tour major cities (including
Jacksonville ) next year. If you
can't wait that long and can't
spring for a trip to Vegas, do
the'next best thing and enjoy
the show's shimmering
soundtrack album on
"LOVE" is, for lack of a bet-
ter word, a mash-up of Beatles
songs and recordings, pro-
duced by The Fab Four's veter-
an producer George Martin
and his son Giles as a sound-
track f6r a Cirque du Soleil
.- -stage-show: - ..--
This album is better -- naw,
I'll stick my neck out and say
greater -- than it has any right
to be, Initially, I shuddered
every time I thought of the
album's conceit. By the time I
finished my first listen of it, I
was near tears.
The album begins with
"Because," from the album "
Abbey Road ." Here, "Because"
is an a cappella version
(probably the version released
in 1996 on "Anthology 3"),
blended with the sound of
flapping wings from the origi-
nal version of "Across the
Universe." It's a good
metaphor for the entire
album, which gently mixes
arid soars from that point on.
SPurists are'sure to quibble
about the Martins' tampering
with the original songs, but
for the most part the compila-
tion is tastefully and pleasura-
bly realized. For example,
"Being for the Benefit of Mr.
Kite!" is mixed with excerpts
from "I Want You (She's So
Heavy)" and "Helter Skelter,"
yet the song still fits Lennon's
original premise of a circus
come-on so authentic that
one can (in Lennon's words)
smell the sawdust. Early ver-
sions of Lennon's masterwork
"Strawberry Fields Forever"
are skillfully blended with the
final version, which then
ends with euphorious clips
from "Hello Goodbye" and
"Piggies And even the
LOVE \etsionM :fhit
hew fairly close to the origi-
nals (such as "I Am the
Walrus") sound better than
ever, with background chatter
and sounds that never seemed
fully "there" in the songs' ini-
Songs that you've heard .a
million times before suddenly
seem fresh and startling, just
like The Beatles' original work
did upon first listening. And
the album doesn't play it safe
by sticking with The Beatles'
most popular tunes -- it even
enhances some of the lesser
songs. For example, George
Harrison's "Within You
Without You," with seemed
the one.droning entry on the
epic "Sgt. Pepper" album, sud-
denly springs to new life
when combined with Ringo
Starr's drumwork from
"Tomorrow Never Knows."
Granted, you have to have a
bit of an open mind to accept
the album's very reason for
being. (One can't help but
wonder what John Lennon,
who poo-poo'd all attempts at
Beatles nostalgia, would think
of the posthumous compila-
tions of Beatles work that
have surfaced in the past
dozen years.) But if you can
get past that initial barrier,
you'll find "LOVE" deeply sat-
isfying and alworthy addition
to the Beatles canon.

Argentina making better wine
ot long ago we were
asked to write a column
about malbec, a grape
variety that was demoted long
ago to play a minor role in
Bordeaux blends, but enjoying
a renaissance in Argentina.
Five years ago we doubt any-
one would have made the
request neither malbec or
Argentina was on anyone's
radar screen. But the request
signalled to us that this grape
variety has a new following.
Argentina winemakers aren't
surprised. They have seen
export sales increase dramati-
cally, especially in the United
States which dominates its
Why all of the recent atten-
tion? There are a number of
reasons, one being that
Argentina's producers are mak-
ing better wine today. Another
is the consumer's curiosity and
a third is malbec's value.
Grown in Argentina's
warmer and drier climate, mal-
bec flourishes. Summers there
are hot and low in humidity.
Cool nights preserve the
grape's fruit and natural acidi-
ty. And the soil along in cen-
tral Mendoza, along the Andes
mountains, is ideal.

Energy saving tips for the summer
It's summer again and I'm
really worried about my utility
bills going through the roof.
Do you have any tips on how I
can save a little bit of cash this
summer to spend on a new
pair of sandals instead of my
Summer is our favorite time
of the year. We love the longer
days (the better for working on
our DIY projects), warm
evenings, and time spent with
friends. What we don't like is
the astronomical energy bills
that come with the hot weath-
er. If you are done with spend-
ing a fortune in the name of
basic comfort, we have good
news. This summer you can
make saving money a breeze
by introducing a few simple
improvements to your home.
Tip 1: Know the Key to
To cut soaring bills without
sweltering through another
season, consider installing or
upgrading to an energy-effi-
cient central cooling system.
When browsing, look for an
ENERGY STAR symbol, which
Tip 2: Not Your Grandma's
Individual room air condi-
tioners are an excellent way to
keep cool this summer and
have come a long way in the
past several years. Priced in the
$100-and-up range, window
units also come in the energy
efficient variety, so again, look
for an ENERGY STAR.
Tip 3: Let the Breezes Blow
Ceiling fans are a great way
of keeping cool and now come
in a host of styles to match any
decor. From sleek and sophisti-
HEIDI BAKER and
cated to dollea-up and theme-
based in a variety of colors, a
ceiling fan can make a great
accoutrement to a room while
saving money on energy bills.
Tip 4: Insulate Your Home
Insulation is one of the best
and least expensive ways of
lowering your bills during the
summer and winter.
Tip 5: Be Made in the Shade
Most heat enters your home
through the windows, poten-
tially hiking the temperature
by more than 20 degrees.
Consider awnings, light-reflect-
ing blinds or even an inexpen-
sive pair of curtains to block
out as much sun as you fancy.
Tip 6: Get Your Ducts in a
Leaky air ducts can waste up
to 12 percent of your home's
energy. Simple do-it-yourself
repairs include reconnecting
loose ducts, sealing joints and
tears with duct tape and
adding insulation wherever
Tip 7: Have Pool, Stay Cool
If you are lucky enough to
be able to dip into your very
own pool this summer, make
sure your money isn't going
down the drain. Lower the
pool's temperature to the mini-
mum recommended by the
manufacturer, and cover to
retain heat when not in use.
Tip 8: Landscape Your Way to
Planting trees, shrubs and
other foliage around your
home helps to block out the
summer sun and winter wind.
A shade tree at the southern
part of your home will act as a
great barrier and will look
Tip 9: Rebates + Financing =
Check with your local utility
company for special offers.
Making the move towards an
energy efficient home will not
only keep you cool this sum-
mer and give you some great
do it yourself jobs, but will also
earn you money.
Tip 10: Turn it Off!
Running appliances during
the middle of the day is more
financially straining and cre-
ates unnecessary heat in your
home. Delay chores until off-
peak hours or until you have a
full dishwasher or load of laun-
dry. Also, turning off lights,
computers and other appli-
ances when not in use can save
you up to 5 percent on your
Saving money this summer
doesn't have to mean suffering
through another heat wave.
Simply being mindful of how
much energy you're using can
equal big savings for the long
sizzling days ahead. Enjoy
your new shoes!

violet color, bitter cocoa, cur-
rants and black berry flavors.

Aro the o me
Use color, wood and substance to make a room men will love
f you're a fan of old
movies, you'll often see
men's film scenes take
place in private libraries,
pool or games rooms, or a
smoking room. The men play
cards, shoot pool, sit and
smoke cigars in these dimly-
lit, wood-laden rooms plan-
ning their revenge, dis-
cussing some important
political topic or carrying out
an important scene in the
film. What these rooms have
in common are their roman-
tic dark colors, rich with ele-
ments of crystal, wood and
low-lighting and they're
just the kind of rooms that
appeal to men.
Twenty years ago, the fami-
ly living area was called the
den. Now it's called the great
room. When you think of a
den today, the word conjures
up a dark, dimly-lit cave.
Men love dens and private
spaces where they can carry
out their technological and
poker-playing fantasies. And
why not? Dark paneled
smoking rooms with bouil-
lon-fringed pool tables make
you want to go into them
and hang out for hours.
Simply having a room with a
pool table and mega-TV isn't
enough, though. A true
man's room requires the full
treatment to get the full
effect. That starts with the
Color sets the
No doubt the single biggest
element in a man's room is
color. Whether you're creat-
ing a library, a home office
or games room, color is the
starting point. Color cues
should come from men's
goods, too like the deep tan
color of a cigar, dark reds and
browns of leather, and the
rich deep greens of golfing
clubs. Light-colored walls
don't have nearly the appeal
or interest that a deep color
has. It also doesn't make
lighting look the same. Dark
colored walls make a room
more inviting and intimate.
Even the scenes from a
large screen TV pop and
come alive when surrounded
by a dark wall. When paint-
ings are really important,
many museums paint the
walls behind them a dark,
rich color to make the paint-
ing more important and
draw the attention to the art-
work. That's what dark walls
do for furnishings in the
room, too they make the
items in the room become
the focal points rather than
the four walls.
Create a cave
If you're thinking of refur-
bishing a room to make a
man's room, whether that's a
games room, media room or
some combination, bring the
interest into the room by
placing an important piece at
the end of the room. This
creates an inward draw to the
space. Use lampshades with
dark, opaque shades that
focus the light down and to
create a more interesting and
dramatic ambience. For fun,
add a faux zebra skin or
other animal skin, head or
element to the room. A
man's room cries out for
some kind of animal con-
quest, but it doesn't have to
be real if you don't have one
or don't like them. Add
heavy wood elements in the
room and select sturdy furni-
ture with larger legs. Avoid
fine details and frilly drapery.
Select heavier drapes with
heavy trim detailing and pos-
itively no flowers.
A man's room also needs
leather, as this is the fabric of
choice for most men. Large
leather chairs or sofas with
nail head trim look fabulous.
And speaking of large, men
like TVs the way they like
their steaks and that's big.
So, think generously for your
man's room on all propor-
tions and you'll hit a home
run. Even if this room is your
media or games room for
everyone in the home, con-
sider making this the room
with a manly appeal. That's
because manly rooms are
also cozy, appealing.places
for women too.

This room is obviously a man's office just by looking at the wood paneled walls, heavy carved desk, bar area and opaque lamp-
shades. Dark and intimate rooms with rich details define rooms that men love.

TEAR-FREE BUBBLES My
little one just loves blowing
bubbles and playing with
them. However, he gets upset
when the bubbles pop, because
some of the solution gets in his
eyes, and it stings. I came up
with a great idea. I replaced the
commercial bubble solution
with equal parts tear-free
shampoo and water. When
these bubbles burst, he doesn't
even notice' since they don't
hurt. Virginia M.
EASY EATS Younger chil-
dren often find it hard to eat
peanut butter, and it can
sometimes pose a choking haz-
ard. Yet, peanut butter is nutri-
tious. I decided to mix the
peanut butter with an equal
amount of vanilla yogurt. My
kids love this "dip." Their
favorite treat is sliced apples
dipped in the mixture. Carla
BATHTIME FOR FIDO My
vet told me about this, so I
thought I'd pass it along.
When bathing your pets, you
should only use lukewarm
water. Hotter or cooler water
can be uncomfortable for the
animal. Belinda K.
EASY SIFT Most cake
recipes will require that you
sift together. the various dry
ingredients. I find the easiest
way to do this is to place all
the ingredients in a bowl and
simply stir them around with a
whisk. Vera D.
COUPON ACCESS I'm
addicted to using coupons,
whether at the supermarket,
dry cleaners or any other
. venue that offers them. Thus, I
keep my coupons for take-out
and fast-food places in my car.
This way,.I have them right on
hand when I need them.
MONEY SAVER Instead of
using those expensive com-
mercial dishwasher rinse aids,
all you need to do is pour a lit-
tle white vinegar into the dish-
washer before running it. Trust
me. The dishes come out all
sparkly! Lisa R.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader
By Maria Favotto Stevens, MS, BSN, RN
Why Is The Sandwich
Generation In Need of
Home Care Services?
In the United States and especially in
Florida's Duval, Clay and St. John's
Counties, we have seen a dramatic
service increase of the elderly popula-
tion. More than 25% of American fam-
ilies are involved, in some way, with
elder-parent care today. Many of these
families require double incomes, not
'only to maintain themselves and their
children's lives, but to support the
added responsibility of maintaining
their parents' well-being. Those who
now find themselves in this role-rever-
sal are sometimes referred to as "the
Sandwich Generation." Suddenly,
today's middle-aged parents are often
forced to step into a new role as the
adult-child of an elderly, and often ill,
family member, one that may even
require constant care. It is often diffi-
cult to foresee or prepare for when our
parents may become ill, or incapacitat-
ed to some degree.
Most U.S. families unexpectedly
become involved with the daily care of
a loved one often without warning,
training, resources, or support. Some
admit they felt completely unprepared
to deal with the many unfortunate
legal, financial, physical, and emo-
tional issues associated caring for an
Reputable homecare agencies, organ-
izations, and other resource groups
have found there are many variables
that evolve individually from the ever-
changing elderly population. They
understand the core of this specialized
care is to anticipate, plan, and, if nec-
essary, to intervene expeditiously and
safely, ensuring the best possible out-
come for the elderly patient and their
Some look to home care agencies for
bathing, feeding, meal preparations,
dressing, ambulation/transferring, toi-
leting issues, medical/non-medical
transportation, medication reminders,
light housekeeping, and companion-
ship. Family members often live away
from their parents. Even if they live in
close proximity, they sometimes find
themselves stretched too thinly to pro-
vide the requisite care, or to commu-
nicate regularly with their parent's
caregivers. Yet coordinated communi-
cation is an important and integral
element promoting continuity of
Many families are torn between the
financial issues related to their family's
future such as saving for their own
retirement and their children's college
education. For their aging parents, it
may include housing options, nursing
homes, social security issues, Medicare
and Medicaid issues, short term and
long term disability issues.
In dealing with the many challenges
associated with the aged, the desired
goal of professional homecare is to
enhance the quality and availability of
services to this fragile, precious popu-
