State says:


No OK for Moody highrise

STAFF WRITER
A state agency has rejected a
proposed comprehensive plan
amendment jeopardizing a high-
rise project planned on the west
' banks of the Intracoastal
Waterway.
The state Department of
Community Affairs said in a
notice this week that it intends to
find the comp plan amendments,
approved in May by the city of
SJacksonville, to not be in compli-
ance with state growth manage-
ment standards.
Specifically, concerns over hur-
ricane evacuation were cited,
according to the agency. Similar
concerns were expressed by
Beaches officials, who, unsuccess-
fully, asked the county not to
approve the comp plan amend-
ments.
The 'amendment is needed to
allow a project to be built on the
Moody site at the western foot of
the Atlantic Boulevard bridge. A
total of 590 units are to be built in
144-foot residential towers.
The DCA found the project not
in compliance based on the
impact on traffic, wetlands and


What it means:

Highrises will not be per-
mitted in the coastal high
hazard area on the west bank
of theICW unless the state
and county agree to changes
to bring the project into com-
pliance with growth manage-
ment standards.
If no settlement is reached,
a legal hearing may be set
and interested parties will be
heard.
hurricane evacuation times,
according to the department's
report.
Beaches officials had argued
that building high-density high-
rises in coastal high hazard areas,
where the property is located,
would increase hurricane evacua-
tion times for existing Beaches cit-
izens.
"I'm very relieved that the DCA
acted in a way that was forth-
rightly and responsible by hold-
ing the City of Jacksonville to the
development rules," said Atlantic
Beach Mayor Don Wolfson.

JPA should fund ferry


CEO says he'll

recommend funds

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
The Executive Director of JAXPORT will recom-
mend to the board of directors that it take over
funding of the St. Johns River Ferry..
Rick Ferrin told members at the Beaches Chamber
of Commerce Luncheon Thursday at Sawgrass Beach
Club that he is preparing a submission for the board
to recommend that it assume responsibility for the
ferry, which the City of Jacksonville can no longer
afford.
"We feel that it [the ferry] is a vital asset to this
region and we can't afford to let it go away," Ferrin
said.
The Port Authority has studied all aspects of the
ferry for two months and determined that if they
did take it over, it would need some "serious invest-
ments," according to Ferrin.
"We run the Port Authority like a business and in
a good business you don't take on something that's
going to make it hemorrhage," he said, adding that
the Port Authority has looked at ways to "stop the
bleeding." It has been estimated by the county that
there will be a $1 million shortfall in ferry operation
funding in the next fiscal year.
Ferrin said the JPA has considered the potential
for advertisement, looked into the operations and
eyed the fares as well as the possibility of dinner
cruises so that the ferry could at least "break even"
Sand not continue to be a drain on finances.
"I think we've come up with a plan to at least
stem the bleeding," Ferrin said,.although he would
not reveal the details.
Ferrin said that the plan should be able to signifi-
cantly reduce the ferry's financial burden within the
first year that the Port Authority takes over.
While Ferrin said that funding the ferry is a depar-
ture from JAXPORT's traditional role, he said he
thinks they can make it work.
The board is composed of seven members who
will vote on the issue at a July 23 meeting.

To combat a growing need
for increased safety, a
Jacksonville Beach nightclub
has put limits on what patrons
can get past the front door.
Freebird Live, a live music
venue with a capacity of 700 at
200 1st Street North, will no
longer allow patrons to carry
backpacks, large purses or any
type of weapon into the club.
The main page of the club's
website at
www.freebirdlive.com reflects
the new entry policy.
It reads, "Due to the growing
violence in our great country
and for the added safety of
everyone, Freebird Live has
implemented new entry poli-
cies. Everyone is subject to


security pat-down upon entry.
No purses, tote bags, back-
packs, weapons [are permitted]
Small wallets only."
Owner Judy Van Zant
Jenness Thursday said the
change is not in response to a
specific incident, rather a
proactive measure to ensure
the continued safety of the
club's patrons and staff.
"It is what it is. At any other
club in the country you have
to do that," she said. "It's too
bad we have to do this. It's a
crazy world we live in."
Jenness said the new policy
not only addresses the need
for more stringent safety
measures but it is also a reflec-
tion of the times.

Federal funds

for new ferry

are in budget
FROM STAFF.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw, a
member of the House Appropriations
Committee, announced this' week that
$500,000 has been included in the fiscal
year 2008 Transpbrtation. Housing and
Urban Development and Related
Agencies appropriations bill for a
replacement layport Ferry.
This bill passed the full Appropriations
Committee and is expected to be voted
on by the full House later this month.
"The Mayport Ferry is an important
resource for our community and is a key
transportation hub without it, thou-
sands of Duval and Nassau county com-
muters would be sunk," said
Congressman Crenshaw."
The Blackbeard has been in service for
more than 50 years, and is no longer,
cost-effective to repair. This funding will
help fund a replacement ferry which will
help save money in the long run and
help this important service to continue."
This funding will be used to replace the
Blackbeard, which became part of the
Mayport ferry service in 1956. The pur-
chase of a replacement used vessel would
lower maintenance costs, improve opera-
tional efficiency, ensure safety, reliability
and save money, Crenshaw reported.
The ferry offers a quick connection to
the Timucuan Ecological and Historic
Preserve on the north side of the St.
Johns River, is a vital link to tourism-
dependent business in Mayport Village,
and is used by commuters every day. The
ferry fleet consists of two vessels, the
Blackbeard and the Jean Ribault. The
Jean Ribault replaced another vessel, the
Buccaneer in 1996.

Cradle Creek repairs made and it reopens


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The Cradle Creek Nature
Preserve in south Jacksonville
Beach, open for nine months,
had to be closed recently due
to damage wrought by
Mother Nature.
Throughout the 43-acre
preserve, recent heavy rains
washed away portions of the
crushed shell pathways at the
foot of the park's wooden
walkovers. The park at 15th


Street South was reopened last
Friday.
Grounds Maintenance
Supervisor Gary Meadors
Monday said construction
crews poured a small amount
of concrete at the base of each
walkover to correct the prob-
lem.
"The transition to the shell
was not real good," Meadors
said Monday. "The rains left a
little dip at the end of each of
the wooden walkways that
would not be good if someone


was not paying attention to
their footing."
"There was no way to route
[preserve patrons] around it
with them working on the
end of the ramps," he said. "It
was reopened Friday and is
still open."
"It is in its pristine state
except for the 8-foot swath
that we had to cut for the
trail," Senior Planner Bill
Mann, who. helped develop
the area's master plan, said of
the park land.


Development of the envi-
ronmentally sensitive land
began in May, 2006 following
several years of planning and
grant procurement.
A state grant from the
Florida Communities Trust
(FCT) funded a portion of the
$1.2 million land acquisition
in August, 2001 to purchase
of approximately 36.5 acres
from the Trust for Public
Lands which halted develop-
ment of a residential subdivi-
sion.


St. Johns water district reduces tax rate


FROM STAFF
The St. Johns River Water
Management District,s
Governing Board voted today
to reduce the agency's tax rate
to 0.4158 mills for the 2007-
2008 fiscal year, which begins
Oct. 1.
In the June special session,
the Florida Legislature enacted
legislation to reduce property
taxes beginning with the
upcoming fiscal year. The bill
sets the maximum millage rate
for water management districts
at 97 percent of the 2007-2008
rolled-back rate. The rolled-back
rate is .defined as the rate at
which tax dollars will provide
the same ad valorem tax rev-
enue as the prior year, minus
new construction, additions to
structures, deletions, and prop-
erty added due to geographic
boundary changes.
To meet the new limits, the
District 'will reduce its millage


from 0.462 in fiscal year 2006-
2007 to 0.4158 next year. As a
result, the District will reduce
its allocation for new initiatives
and projects by approximately
$15 million.
The tentative budget, which
is currently set at $402 million,
includes
$82.6 million to fund 45
alternative water supply proj-
ects. An increase of almost 30
percent in the program budget
reflects a significant increase in
carryover funds for projects that
were initiated during the last
two fiscal years.
$70 million for the Lower
St. Johns River Basin program,
which includes projects to
remove wastewater discharges
from the river with the goal of
reducing nitrogen and phos-
phorus loading to the river,
helping offset future water sup-
ply needs and providing for
long-term growth in northeast


Florida. The total is a 62 percent
increase over the current years
funding due to a large amount
of carryover funds from fiscal
year 2006^2007.
$6.3 million for nutrient
discharge reduction projects in
the Middle St. Johns River Basin
S $2.3 million for the Upper
St. Johns River Basin program,
which is 41.6 percent lower
than this year due to the antici-
pated completion of and reduc-
tion in current projects
The tentative budget also
contains $2.6 million to assist
local governments with
stormwater projects that pro-
mote flood control, demon-
strate best management prac-
tices and implement stormwa-
ter utilities.
Under a 0.4158 millage rate,
41.58 cents is collected for
every $1,000 of assessed proper-
ty value. The owner of a
$200,000 house who claims the


standard $25,000 homestead
exemption would pay $72.76
per year in property taxes to the
District.
Two public hearings will be
held prior to final budget adop-
tion in late September.
Public hearings will be held at
5:05 p.m. on Sept. 11 and Sept.
25 at the District's headquarters
in Palatka. Final budget
approval will occur at the Sept.
25 meeting.
The District is responsible for
regulating water use and pro-
tecting wetlands, waterways
and drinking water supplies in
all or part of Alachua, Baker,
Bradford, Brevard, Clay, Duval,
Flagler, Indian River, Lake,
Marion, Nassau, Okeechobee,
Orange, Osceola, Putnam, St.
Johns, Seminole and Volusia
counties.


High-rise: Project fails to meet growth standards


Continued from A-i
According to DCA's report,
the entire site is located in the
Coastal High Hazard area,
which is the elevation below
the water levels expected in a
category 1 storm surge.
"My congratulations to the
DCA for their thoroughness,"
said Atlantic Beach
Commissioner Sylvia
Simmons.
The notice also included
remedial suggestions in order
for the project to come into
compliance. DCA spokesman'
Jon Peck said that if a settle-
ment is reached.after DCA
and Jacksonville agree to
changes, then a remedial


amendment would have to be
adopted.
The recommendations for
possible changes include pro-
viding additional studies to
support residential units,,
revising the amendment to
limit the impact on environ-
mentally sensitive lands and
modifying the traffic study to
reflect the maximum density
required- by the City of
Jacksonville's Comp Plan to
support that rezoning.
Wolfson said that if these
revisions were made, the city
of Atlantic Beach could sup-
port the project.
"Our position has never
been for the site not to be


developed," Wolfson said.
It is unclear whether
Atlantic Beach or Neptune
Beach, which passed a resolu-
tion 3-2 Monday expressing
concerns about the project,
could participate in the settle-
ment talks. If a settlement is
not reached with 21 days, or
longer if a judge extends the
deadline, then an administra-
tive hearing would be held. At
that hearing, which would be
a legal proceeding, respon-
dents with standing could be
heard in the matter.
In Neptune Beach, Mayor
Dick Brown and Councilor
Eric Pardee voted against the.
resolution.

F;d7 F- ,:i7


The Planning and
Development Department
will work with the DCA in an
attempt to come to a compli-
ance agreement, according to
AICP, Chief for Jacksonville's
Strategic Planning
Department Margo Moehring.
If neither party can reach an
agreement, the case will go
before an administrative law
judge, according to Moehring.
Any affected person has the
right to petition for an
administrative hearing to
challenge the DCA's determi-
nation. The petitioner has 21
days to file after the DCA's
notice of intent has been pub-
lished.

"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 charges.
"Unbelievable", said one homeowner, "I can't believe how thissimple 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 offl 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 Report was 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.

Where's outrage over Starbucks?


To the editor:
When a certain store decided
to open in Neptune Beach, the
cry rang out from a vocal
minority of citizens and some
members of the Neptune Beach
City Council that this competi-
tion would put our mom & pop
stores out of business. One of
our own Councilors even signed
a petition to keep this store out
of our town (while saying with a
straight face that he was open
minded about the store).
Imagine my complete sur-
prise when I learned that this
same Council is allowing a
Starbucks to occupy the former
Wachovia drive-thru bank on
Third Street. Never mind that
this Starbucks will go in directly
across the street from another
Starbucks (!), but it will practi-
cally be sitting in the backyard
of a quaint mom & pop coffee
shop by the name of Shelby's.
Where is the wringing of hands
and gnashing of teeth over the
possibility that this competition
could put this "mom & pop" out
of business? When the afore-


mentioned store wanted to
build, several members of this
Council decided one of its func-
tions was to keep competition
away from certain businesses.
Though I don't believe that is a
legal function of a Council, I did
expect the same outcry against
this mega corporate coffee
chain taking over the world as
the mega corporate discount
store.
I look forward to reading the
traffic study showing how this
store will affect the "failed road"
known as Atlantic Boulevard
upon which "not one more trip
can be generated". I also look
forward to the posting ofcrime
statistics for Starbucks on the
City of Neptune Beach website.
This seems to be the new proto-
col for business in this town. I'll
hold my breath; at least that
way I won't have to smell the
stench of hypocrisy coming
from City Hall.

Be sure you're registered to vote


To the editor:
On July 9 members of the
Atlantic Beach District
Representation study commit-
tee presented their formal rec-
ommendations to the
Commission. The study group's
report unanimously recom-
mends the Commission place a
measure to create four district
Commission seats on the fall
municipal ballot; candidates for
the seats would have to reside
within the boundaries of the
district they seek to represent,
but elections will continue to be
at-large.
It will be up to the
Commission to hold public
hearings and decide if they wish
to follow, alter or disregard
entirely the recommendations
of the study group. If a measure
is put on the ballot, voters will
have the:final say. ; ',
I prefer single-member dis-
tricts, which are a more direct
form of representative govern-
ment. However, after attending
over half of the meetings of the
study group and reading their
final report, I am satisfied that
the study group members have
reached a reasonable compro-
mise. The main thing is that cit-
izens on the west side of AB will
have a seat at the table.
No electoral system is
immune to gaming by people
intent on electoral victory at
any cost, a fact that ought to be
apparent to all Floridians after
the 2000 elections. What is
required for fairness, whether it
is the ballot or governance, is
good faith and respect for dis-
parate views.
I believe that the current
Commission and city staff
demonstrated these values in
reaching consensus and com-
promise to end the divisive and
bitter "community values"
debate that raged for, over a
year. Creation of the District
Representation study commit-
tee is another example of their
good faith and respect for dis-


parate views.
These two important actions
of the current Commission
stand in stark contrast to the
operationalism and oppor-
tunism that characterized
municipal government during
the John Meserve years -- years
when 3-2 votes consistently
determined important commu-
nity questions. Thus, it was no
surprise that Mr. Meserve
showed up at the July 9
Commission meeting to recom-
mend preservation of the pres-
ent electoral system.
The present at-large electoral
system, which does not include
a residency requirement, dilutes
the votes of west Atlantic Beach
and results in no actual
Commission representation for
approximately one-third of the
population. The consequences
of no actual representation were
wholly, negative during the
Meserve years, and even the
goodwill of the present
Commission has had its limits
when it comes to individual
Commissioners expending
political capital for causes or
needs peculiar to the west side
of town.
The final report of the
Atlantic Beach District
Representation study commit-
tee is available on the city's web-
site. This report is a reflection of
the intelligence and hard work
that representative government
requires of us all. The document
needs to be read by those people
who come to public meetings
and say there is no problem
with the current system.
Assuming the "at-large with
residency requirement" ques-
tion gets placed on the ballot by
the Commission, voters will
vote on Oct. 2.
The voter-registration books
close one month prior to elec-
tion day. If you believe in a level
playing field, vote for this meas-
ure.

Summer camp has changed for youth


Dear Mom and Dad,
It's been less than a week
since you dropped me off at
summer camp. You better come
get me 'cause I'm in big trouble.
On my first day, I was feeling
homesick. So I found a piece of
wood and began carving it with
my Swiss Army knife the way
Daddy showed me.
Well, one of the counselors
yelled at me to "freeze." He took
my knife, then patted me
down. Then he marched me off
to the camp director. The direc-
tor said, who did I think I was
bringing a lethal weapon, a'
symbol of pain and death, into
her camp? Then she gave me a
"verbal warning."
The next day, Billy Johnson
and I got bored, so we went into
the woods to play army. We
turned a couple of branches
into guns and made bullet nois-
es as we fought the bad guys.
Sure enough, we got marched
off to the director. The director
said there's so much war in the
world because boys like us are
taught to "celebrate" it from an
early age. She said we should be
ashaited of- ourselves and that
we were lucky she wasn't send-
ing us home.
So I figured I.better stay out of
trouble. But then I got in trou-
ble at lunch. I began to say
grace out loud, just like you
taught me, and I was carted off
to the director again.
She wanted to know who I
thought I was imposing my
beliefs on others. She said my
actions showed how "ignorant"


and "insensitive" Americans are
to other cultures; then she gave
me another warning.
Believe it or not, things got
even worse the next day. We
were weaving baskets and I was
sitting next to Mary Allison, the
prettiest girl I ever saw.
"Mary," I said, "you're so pret-
ty you make me smile from ear
to ear."
Well, sure enough, I was cart-
ed off to the director again. She
said I really c rossed the.lin~tihis.
time. She said my behavior was
not only "boorish," but against
the law. She said I should be
sued for sexual harassment.
By the way, what is a "gender
terrorist"?
I was pretty uptight by that
point. But I was able to forget
about it the next day when we
played kickball. I kicked the ball
really far and I got a grand slam.
I was so happy, I said; "We win!


We win!"
Sure enough, that got me
another trip to the director's
office. This time she said I was
"insensitive" to the players on
the other team. She said I hurt
their "self-esteem." Then she
asked me if Daddy was a
Republican.
By this point, I figured I'd bet-
ter just keep to myself. So I got
a jar out of the cafeteria and
went into the woods. I got a
bumblebee into the jar and put
some flowers in there to keep
him happy. I was poking holes
in the top to let fresh air in
when I was hauled off to the
director again.
This time, she was really mad.
She said, who did I think I was
giving a "death sentence" to an
innocent bee? She said I had no
respect for the Earth and that it
was people like me who were
responsible for hurting the
environment. She said I'll be
lucky if the world doesn't end
before I collect Social Security.
She said I better get with the
program -- that there is no place
irii this' world it Ifidreift&'
"fhoughtiess," "'eMitess," "rtleh-
sitive" boys like me. She said if I
to mess up one more time, she
was kicking me out of the
camp.
By the way, what is Ritalin?
Anyhow, you better plan on
coming back here to get me.
Tomorrow everybody is going
for a hike in the woods..And I
already picked some flowers to
give to Mary Allisori.
Your son, Tommy

Jax Beach woman serves Giuliani campaign


To the editor:
As someone who knows the
Jacksonville area well, I feel for-
mer Mayor Rudy Giuliani best
represents what we are all
about. That is why I have cho-
sen to serve the former Mayor
as his Duval County
Chairwoman.
Rudy Giuliani represents the
type of leadership and result-
oriented governing we need in
the coming years. His record
of making New York City safe
and livable after years of crime
and governmental failures is a


testament to his ability to solve
very challenging problems.
To attack crime in New York,
Rudy employed a tool called
CompStat to map out high-
crime areas and respond appro-
priately. The results yielded a
56 percent drop in the City's
crime rate. Rudy plans to use
programs similar to CompStat
to monitor lapses in our border
and port systems, inefficiencies'
in government spending, and
how well we anticipate poten-
tial terror threats.
Rudy Giuliani led a complex,


very large government produc-
ing results no -one thought he
could. All Americans want to
see the Federal government
become more effective, more
efficient, and better able to
serve us going forward like New
York City's government did in
the 90's. I believe electing
Rudy Giuliani as President will
get us there and I amprivileged
to be able to spread Rudy's opti-
mistic message to the Beaches.

Beaches contribute to congestion with development


STo the editor:
Many improvements have
been made to area roads since
the last time the Beaches have
had to evacuate due to a hurri-
cane threat. Atlantic Boulevard
is now six lanes. Beach
Boulevard is getting the same
improvements, which will
allow more cars to get off the
island quicker. We also now
have the option of the
Wonderwood Bridge to help
evacuate the beaches faster.
Some Council members of
Neptune and Atlantic Beach are
expressing their concerns over
the Moody Shipyards project in
Jacksonville by passing resolu-


tions against it. First it was the
view, then the height, and now
it is the evacuation effect it will
have on Atlantic Boulevard.
You might believe that they
have genuine concern if it
weren't for their approval of
new subdivisions, condos and a
r sort hotel conversion here at
e Beach, as well as encourag-
ing the commercial corridor
along Atlantic Boulevard to
convert to mixed use; all of
which will add more residential
homes. All of this will con-
tribute to the number of cars
that will be on the Beach side of
the Intracoastal trying to evacu-
ate. If you look at the EOC


website at coj.net
for Duval
County you will see that the
evacuation route posted for all
of Neptune Beach is south to
Beach Boulevard and not
Atlantic Boulevard.
Yes, we need to work togeth-
er with our neighboring cities,
but we also need to keep our
integrity. Once again, some
elected officials say one thing
and do another. Don't just sit
back and let them get away
with it, you deserve better.

Neptune Beach Councilor


Hope Van grant has been requested, but not certain


To the editor:
This letter is to clarify the sta-
tus of the Sulzbacher/B.E.A.M.
collaboration on the "Hope
Van" as reported in last Friday's
Leader. At this point, we are
strictly at the proposal stage. A
grant has been submitted, but it
is an extremely competitive
grant. This grant is not awarded
until late Fall. Should we be for-
tunate enough to receive this
grant then a formalized, con-
crete plan for services will be
developed. The Beaches has a


unique set of needs so the
Beaches Hope Van program
would not be exactly the same
as the Hope Van that is current-
ly deployed downtown.
B.E.A.M. and Sulzbacher will
work in conjunction with the
city governments and other
stakeholders in this community
to come up with resources that
will be the most beneficial for
our homeless population.
Prior to the submission of the
grant, all three city Mayors at
the Beach were briefed on the


grant application and proposed
program and all were in support
of the concept. We are all
thankful to the Sulzbacher
Center for their willingness to
consider this collaboration with
our Beaches community.
Should this program come to
pass it wduld be a huge step for-
ward in addressing our commu-
riities growing homeless chal-
lenge.

LeMaster


is due a


tribute


from PV



To the editor:
As a teenager growing up
at the beach during the
1960's I first became familiar
with the LeMaster name. I
would periodically hear or
read about Ebbie LeMaster
an individual who seemed to
always be doing things on
behalf of the Ponte Vedra
community. I didn't meet
Ebbie back then as I was just
a teenager. However, I had
the privilege of personally
getting to know him almost
40 years later in conjunction
with my tenure as a board
member of the Ponte Vedra
Community Association.
And no surprise, I came into
contact with Ebbie while he
was continuing to work on
important issues designed'to
improve and promote the
Ponte Vedra community.
There have been many let-
ters to the editor highlight-
ing the significant contribu-
tions made by Ebbie
LeMaster over his lifetime.
However, what was truly
striking to me was that more
than 40 years after I first
'heard his name, Ebbie was
still expressing his deep love
and commitment for this
"'comfriunity'^hrough' olngo-
ig'arlnid tirel e I eticrt so' our
behalf. Ebbie's dedication,
commitment and contribu-
tions have certainly helped
make Ponte Vedra a unique
and wonderful place.
I, for one firmly believe
that naming the new high
school after Ebbie LeMaster
would be a fitting tribute to
his lifetime of community
service.

Following the deaths, fans

Jenness said the reactions

Ponte Vedra United Methodist Church members on mission to feed the hungry


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Members of Ponte Vedra
United Methodist Church are
among the many local volun-
teers who work at Mission
House to feed homeless people
at the beaches.
A group of women who for-
merly met for a PVUMC Bible
Study serves lunch on the fifth
Monday in every month in
which one occurs. The Mission
House. The Cornerstone Sunday
School class for adults serves
Sunday dinner six times a year,
said class members Brett and
Susan Merrill.
Both groups of volunteers
have found the project so
rewarding that they have been
helping at Mission House for
over four years. The ladies group
will next serve lunch on July 30
and the Cornerstone volunteers
served dinner on July 8.
"It is our pleasure to serve
them," said Brett Merrill, who
also helps to organize the
group's efforts at Mission House.
"We realize that we are very for-
tunate and that. other people are
not so fortunate."
Serving and helping people in
the community "is just some-
thing, we are supposed to do,"
said Susan Merrill.
"The ladies in the Bible Study
were looking to do service in the
community," said volunteer Jill
Bennett, who is the wife of
PVUMC Pastor Jeff Bennett. "We
are so blessed to have plenty of
food on our tables."
After contacting Mission
House, the women were happy
to join the effort to help those
who are not so blessed, she said.
The women's group either
prepares lasagna or shepherd's
pie casseroles or uses food that
has been donated to Mission
House, said Bennett. Often on
Monday there is plenty of fresh
produce that has been donated
to Mission House which they
can use for salads.
For their turn on Sundays, the
Cornerstone volunteers prepare


the main meal of the day.
Otherwise, only coffee and
baked goods are available on
Sunday. The volunteers devel-
oped "a model" for the meal
which has been popular with
the clients of Mission House,
said Brett Merrill.
The meal includes many dish-
es that would be part of a tradi-
tional Sunday dinner with
baked ham. They always pur-
chase a "high quality" ham
which is served with a sauce for
extra flavor.
Southern style potato salad
and macaroni and cheese always
go along with the ham.
Vegetables are made by volun-
teer John McEvoy whose sea-
soned Italian green beans and
corn combination are well liked.
Rolls, biscuits, and a fruit bowl
or tossed salad are also offered
when there is an abundance of
fresh food needed for these dish-
es, said Susan Merrill. Desserts
are fruit pies, cakes, and choco-
late desserts that have been
donated by local businesses.
While the volunteers do not
prepare everything from scratch,
they make sure to offer "very
tasty food." The ham is always
good quality and the prepared
foods are what might be served.
in restaurants, said Brett Merrill.
Two days before they are
scheduled to serve, Merrill
checks at Mission House for any
donated food before planning
his shopping list.
The Cornerstone volunteers
donate the funds for the food
that needs to be purchased, said
Merrill. Since there are generous
donations from local stores, he
said that he spends an average of
$100 for food shopping.
On Sunday, Merrill arrives at
about 12:45 to get out the food
and begin to set up the food sta-
tions. Within thirty minutes the
rest of the crew, usually 5 to 8
people, arrives.
By 1:45 everything that needs
to be baked is in the oven. While
some of the volunteers finish
preparing the rest of the meal,

the others have a chance to visit
with the Mission House clients
who are there for the dinner.
Most are 50 to 70 years old with
some clients in their early 20's s
well. There have never been any
families with children at the
meals served by the group, said
Brett Merrill.
By 3 p.m the Sunday dinner is
ready to be served. PVUMC
Pastor Jeff Bennett frequently is
on hand to offer the blessing
and offer a short uplifting mes-
sage, said McEvoy.
Then the waiting people are
handed filled plates of food by
the volunteers. Everyone is per-
mitted to come back for seconds
or more but they are required to
eat the meals in the dining
room, said Brett Merrill.
Their service is counted by the
number of full plates served, he
said. Most Sundays they serve
between 105 to 130 platefuls.
The experience has been so
rewarding that the Cornerstone
volunteers would be willing to
work on other Sundays, but so
far there hasn't been a need, said
Susan Merrill.


The people served are so grate-
ful. There has. never been an
incident of anyone acting in an
untoward manner, said Brett
Merrill. They are willing to help
the volunteers with set-up and
cleaning up afterwards and are
always gracious and pleasant to
each other.
"We are truly blessed," said
Mission House Executive
Director Jan Flager in reference
to the service of local churches
and organizations at Mission
House. .
There are literally dozens of
churches and faith based groups
of every denomination as well as
local business groups who have
volunteers providing meals at
Mission House, he said.
Approximately 500 volunteers
monthly participate in the
effort.
Mission House receives gener-
ous donations of food from local
businesses which is used by the
volunteers for the midday meal,
said Flager. Churches that vol-
unteer for the evening meal gen-
erally provide the food which is
served.

State league names local top teacher


by KATHY NICOLETTI
.STAFF WRITER
Beaches Chapel School facul-
ty member Sherry Robbins is
this year's winner of the
Teacher of the Year Award from
the Florida League of Christian
Schools.
Robbins,who has been a
teacher for 26 years, said she
views teaching as a "most
important job" and that she felt
a calling to become a teacher.
"In teaching we make an
investment, but we get the
most reward," she said. -
Robbins has been on the fac-
ulty at Beaches Chapel School
for over 12 years. She is the
Assistant Principal, teaches 7th
grade History, 7th and 8th
grade Bible, and 7th and 8th
grade English. She is also the
8th grade homeroom teacher.
She and her husband Bruce
live in Atlantic Beach. Their son
Warren completed 8th grade at
Beaches Chapel School and will
begin 9th grade at Fletcher
High School this year.
During her 26 years as a
teacher, Robbins has also
taught in public schools in New
York City, Chicago, and at


Fletcher Senior High School.
To be a successful teacher, a
person needs to have com-
passion for the students and
passion for the subject," she
said.
Robbins has a passion for
literature" and said that
through literature "we can
learn about others and our-
selves."
The most inspirational class-
es from her own years as a stu-
dent were two undergraduate
classes at UNF, she said.
These were a creative writing
class taught by Dr. Mary Baron
and a literature class taught by
Dr. Allen Tilley.
Robbins graduated from UNF
with a Bachelor of Arts degree
in English Education and from
the University of Illinois with a
Master of Arts degree in
English.
During her teaching career
she has taught both middle and
high school students.
Although middle school is
considered the most difficult
age, these are the years when
there is "a window of opportu-
nity," she said.
Middle school students are


Sherry Robbins


"spontaneous like children."
They are still open to new ideas
and and have not formed the
strong opinions sometimes
found in older students, she
said.
Teaching in a private,


Christian School gives the fac-
ulty the opportunity to be
"involved in the development
of the whole child...academical-
ly and spiritually," said
Robbins.
"We are able to talk about
faith .... and can view English
and history from a Biblical per-
spective."
Parents can have a positive
effect on their children by
spending time with them, pray-
ing with them, and encourag-
ing them to be involved with a
church and a youth group, she
said.
Parents can also help their.
children do well in school by
exposing them to reading, the
library, and travel.
In order for students to be
successful academically,
Robbins said that she encour-
ages them to be organized, not
fall behind in their work, and
"to not limit themselves."
It is important for students
not to decide ahead of time
that they can't do something,
like writing poetry or doing
math. They need to be encour-
aged to "rise and meet chal-
lenges," she said.

Where is


FHSAA in


N'western


scandal?


ast December, on the eve
of Nease High defending
its Class 4A state football
championship, the bigger
news out of Miami was that a
star running back for
Northwestern High had been
charged with lewd and lascivi-
ous battery on a minor.
School officials decided to
let Antwain Easterling play in
the Class 6A title game, and
the running back rushed for
157 yards to secure a third
state championship for
Northwestern.
It was controversial at the
time and even more so now
that an official investigation
has concluded. In a scathing
report, a Miami-Dade grand
jury found an extensive
coverup by school officials of
sex between Easterling (then
19) and a 14-year-old girl in a
school restroom.
"[The district and the
school] allowed for the glory
of football to trump the needs
and safety of a little girl," the
grand jury report said.
That.coverup will cost 21
teachers, coaches including
head football coach Roland
Smith and his staff and
counselors their jobs, accord-
ing to Miami-Dade
Superintendent Rudy Crew.
But Crew also ruled that
football will go on as planned
at Northwestern for the 2007
season. Players at the F-rated
school will have to sign a
pledge to "respect women"
and must maintain a 2.5
grade-point average, instead of
2.0.
So where is the Florida High
School Athletic Association in
all this? That organization was
quick to levy a record fine and
prohibitive restrictions against
Nease last fall when it said the
school had violated recruit-
ment policies by offering a
player and his family a place
to live as well as rides home
from practice.
Though FHSAA officials
ruled the violations "uninten-
tional," a $20,000 fine and
(reduced) probation were
upheld upon appeal.
Shouldn't systemic corrup-
tion by school administrators
to keep a player.on the field
and police from learning
about'a crime merit some sort
of response from the FHSAA?
When news of the sex scan-
dal, which occurred midway
through last season, finally
broke in the days leading up
to the 2006 title games, why
didn't FHSAA commissioner
John Stewart step in to keep
Easterling from playing?
Those are legitimate and
important questions but thus
far the only statement from
Stewart is that it "might be
appropriate" for Crew to have
suspended the Northwestern
program for the 2007 season.
There's a lot of hue and cry
emanating from South Florida
about how punishing the
Bulls football program would
be an injustice because it's all
Northwestern really has going
for it. Letters to the editor and
columns in the Miami Herald
stress those sentiments.
Doesn't that signal priorities
which are completely out of
whack? Instead of focusing on
how to get failing academics
up to a passing FCAT grade,.
parents, teachers and school
officials are more interested in
letting the football team play
on.
What a sad commentary on
the disproportionate role
sports has claimed on high
schools, the people who run
them and those tasked with
overseeing the state's academ-
ic programs.


FROM STAFF

Fletcher High's Sam Perry
has been named recipient of
the inaugural Bragan Award
which goes to the most out-
standing high school baseball
player in North Florida.
Perry was selected by a panel
of coaches and officials famil-
iar with high school baseball in
the area, and the decision was
ratified by Jacksonville Suns
President Peter Bragan, Jr.
Perry, a pitcher and infielder,
graduated from Fletcher this
year and is scheduled to attend
the University of North
Florida, where he will play for
head coach Dusty Rhodes.
"When I first got the call
from Mr. Bragan I was really
surprised," said Perry. "I knew I
had a good season, but to be
picked for this award is a true
honor and I'm very excited to
be recognized."
SPerry, who was nominated
by Senators skipper Kevin
Brown, helped lead Fletcher to
a second-place finish in the
district playoffs and the
school's first state playoff
appearance in seven seasons.
He was 4-1 on the mound with
a 1.96 ERA, 56 strikeouts and
13 walks.
At the plate, Perry batted
.444 with 32 hits, 24 RBIs,
eight doubles, a pair of triples
and three HR. He was also a
National Honor Student.
"Sam is one of the most nat-
urally athletic kids that I've
been around in my 24-year
coaching career," Brown said.
"As a person, he's very smart
and a great team player and it
was a true joy coaching and
knowing Sam for four years. I
have no doubt that he'll be a
success at UNF and in wherev-
er the future takes him."
A formal award presentation
will take place before the Suns
game against the Birmingham

Student, has been named the inaugural recipient of the Bragan Award as the area's most outstanding high school player.


Barons on Saturday, July 14.
The award is named in honor
of Peter Bragan, Sr., who has
owned the Jacksonville Suns
since 1984. The actual trophy


is modeled after a 1930s
Nokona brand fielder's glove
that belonged to the elder
Bragan when he played semi-
pro baseball in Philadelphia.


"We had some great candi-
dates for the first-ever Bragan
Award, and it was a tough deci-
sion," said Peter Bragan, Jr. "I
felt that Sam truly encompass-


es what my father and I want
the yearly recipient 'of this
award to be a good ballplay-
er, a good student and an all-
around good kid."


Game's hitting streak stopped at 33


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER
When a batter in baseball
has a hitting streak, some peo-
ple take notice.
When Neptune Beach's Mat
Gamel reached 30 games into
his hitting streak for the
Brevard County Manatees of
the Florida State League earlier
this month, many people
began to take notice.
Gamel, who was a member
of the 2002 high school state
champion team at Bishop
Kenny High School, was hav-
ing a normal year by high-A
standards for the Milwaukee
Brewers farm team when, in
May, he started hitting the
ball well.
Gamel stretched the hitting:
streak to 33 games, just three
shy of the league record 36-
game streaks by former
Daytona Cubs Joseph
Altobelli, who recorded the
streak in 1951 and Adam
Greenberg, who in 2002
matched the Florida State
League record.
"It was an awesome run. It
wasn't one of these streaks
where he was flaring balls and
getting lucky hits he was
hitting the ball hard," Brevard
County manager John
Tamargo told Florida Today.
"His approach for that
whole month was just amaz-
ing the way he took balls the
other way and turned on balls
inside. It was just a very good
hitting streak."
The third baseman was
drafted in the fourth round of
the 2005 draft after playing at
Chipola Community College
in Marianna, Fla. following his
high school career at Bishop
Kenny,. There, Gamel contin-
ued the school's recent tradi-
tion of sending baseball play-
ers to the next level, from
Boston Red Sox star Jon
Papelbon, to minor league
player Tony Ritchie.
After being drafted by the
Brewers in 2005, Gamel then
played his rookie ball at
Helena, Montana, where he
batted .327 with five home
runs and 37 RBIs in 50 games.
' He was promoted to the
West Virginia Power, the low-
A club where he finished out
the 2005 season and played
the full 2006 season, batting
.288 with 17 home runs. He
earned the South Atlantic
League All-Star game's Top
Star award, the SAL's Mid

streak came to an end this week, falling three shy of tying the league record.


Season All-Star team and was
named to the SAL's Post-
Season All-Star Team.
The success he had while
playing with the Power earned
him his next call-up, to his
current team, the Manatees.
Along with the 33-game hit-
ting streak, during which he
which he batted .411, the 6-
foot, 205-pound Gamel is hit-
ting .308 and leads the team
in runs (48), doubles (28),
triples (4) and total bases
(136).


During the hitting streak,
Gamel compiled 51 hits, 17
were doubles and four were
triples, and smacked three
home runs. He knocked in 26
runners and recorded 16 mul-
tiple-hit games from the third
spot in the lineup.
When the streak came to an
end last Sunday against the
Palm Beach Cardinals, people
finally started to open up
about the feat, which many
players and coaches kept to
themselves fearing a jinx.


"We whispered about it in,
the dugout," teammate Ned
Yost told Florida Today. "After
he'd get a hit we'd all kind of
huddle together and be like,
'How many is that now?' and
kind of keep track."
It is typical in baseball for
players to back away from dis-
cussing personal streaks, even
if those players aren't neces-
sarily superstitious.
"I'm not really superstitious
about that kind of stuff so it
really didn't matter to me,"


Gamel told Florida Today.
"You still have to get out there
and hit the ball. It's not like
saying something about it is
going to jinx it.
"I didn't think anything of
it," he said. "I just tried to keep
everything simple. I'd look for
a fastball and try to hit it."
But thoughts of the streak
did come to Gamel occasion-
ally, even asking his coach if
he could bunt for a hit to keep
it alive, something usually
unheard of.
In the end, Palm Beach
Cardinals pitcher Tyler
Norrick got the best of him,
holding Gamel hitless in their
July 10 game.
"It popped in my head,"
Gamel said in Florida Today.
"But the guy threw a good
game. What are you going to
do? The world goes on."
Gamel's streak is the sixth
longest hitting streak in the
minors over the past 20 years,
and the third longest this sea-
son behind Columbus'
Brandon Watson (43 games)
and Charleston's Mitch
Hilligoss (38 games).
Gamel was in the middle of
a 2-for-22 slump when he got
a hold at the plate and started
the streak in May.
"I was going through some
crazy stuff at the plate," he
said in a MLB news release, "I
was getting blown away by
fastballs and was on time with
changeups."
The streak also gave Gamel
some appreciation for what
Joe DiMaggio did for the New
York Yankees in 1956, the year
he ran a 56-game hit streak,
still the all-time Major League
record.
Gamel's next milestone
could be when he turns 22
years old in a few weeks with
the possibility of a promotion
to the Huntsville Stars, the
Double-A club in the Southern
League which happens to be
playing in Jacksonville that
weekend. The athletic third
baseman, however, considers
that a longshot.
"That would be awesome,
wouldn't it?" his mother, Ceri
Gamel, said. "To play baseball
in your hometown. That
would be so exciting."
Gamel still calls Neptune
Beach his home and continues
to return here for the offsea-
son.
He plans to make his perma-
nent home "somewhere
around [here]," he says, as
soon as things are ready.

Are summer camps beneficial for runners?


Summer camp: Like swel-
tering heat and sunburn it
is a summer tradition.
This time of year high school
runners are headed off to sum-
mer camps in a mass exodus.
But what is it all about? Is
this an important training reg-
imen or just a clever get-away-
from-Mom-and-Dad maneu-
ver?
Local runner, Owen Schott,
has been to the Brevard,
North Carolina running camp
seven times. Three times
while in high school and four
times accompanying teams
from Nease, Episcopal and
Bishop Kenny high schools.
Next week he is going back as
a counselor. Schott is a big
proponent of the summer
running camp concept.
"It is a fun time for all the
kids," Schott said. "It is very
social and they get a chance
to meet people from all over
the country."
He continued: "From a prac-
tical point of view, it is great
training and really prepares
them for the upcoming cross-
country season. The kids run
two or even three times a day.
"They learn stretching and

relaxation techniques. They
can do yoga. The camp pro-
vides some excellent speakers
and the kids can take in a lot.
The experience is tremendous.
"And best of all is that after
every workout you can lay
down in a cold mountain
stream. There is nothing bet-
ter for the legs; you feel brand
new."
The runners also have a
chance to work on technical
areas. Hurdlers, for example,


can practice clearances and
sprinters can improve their
starts. But aside from individ-
ual gains, the best thing that a
team can get from a week or
two at a running camp is
unquestionably team bond-
ing.
Between

tices and "From a p

kinds of exercises and things
are done to help pull the indi-
viduals together and develop a
strong team. It helps a lot and
you can feel quite a difference
by the time it is all over.".


Coaches do not always
attend camp with their teams
but it is a good idea for them
to do so. "They can see who
the leaders are, who the hard
workers are, who the com-
plainers are, and who the
quiet ones are. They can see

what they
have on
their
team,"
Schott said.
In
Brevard,
kids live in
dormito-
ries; usually
two to a
room, and
according
to Schott
the food is
absolutely
"awesome."
Most kids
go up as
part of a
team but


some sign up solo.
With three workouts a day
it is definitely not a good idea
to travel light to summer
camp. The wet, dirty laundry
piles up fast even if there is an
on-site launderette. Schott rec-


ommends taking three pairs of
running shoes, about fourteen
sets of running clothes and
socks, and four towels.
"Regular clothes" are also a
necessity, and campers will
want to look spiffy when it
comes to the weekly dance
and ice cream social. Yes, as I
mentioned earlier, the kids
make friends and even with
plenty of counselors, coaches
and chaperones on hand
romance is still in the air.
The camp in Brevard is the
most popular with local run-
ners and coaches, but there
are many others around.
Furman University has one in
Greenville, SC; Duke has one
in Durham, NC; there is a
Nike camp in Asheville, NC
and the famous miler, Jim
Ryan, has one in Flagstaff, AZ.
I am sure that a quick
Google search would reveal
many more. Prices vary and
discounts are given to teams
taking seven runners or more.
Move quickly, because most
camps fill up. At the time of
writing there is still some
vacancy in the final week of
July at Brevard.
The final word: Parents,
encourage your kids to take


up the healthy sport of run-
ning and send them to sum-
mer running camp. They'll
love it and so will you. You'll
finally be able to take that
cruise you've always dreamed
of or maybe even hit the slot
machines in Las Vegas.
We never outgrow our need
for summer camp, now do
we?

Maybe it's a Pepsi conspiracy in NASCAR


It was supposed to be the
lucky weekend, you know,
the whole 07/07/07 thing.
It was looking like luck was
on some driver's sides during
qualifying for last weekend's
Pepsi 400 at Daytona ;
International Speedway. '
For Jeremy Mayfield,
Michael Waltrip and Boris

were looking quite well for

"fun" race at Daytona. Said
liked it so much, he wanted to
race ovals some more.
Since he's not a full-time
driver, any race he wishes to
enter, he must qualify on time
to race. Last Friday, with 14
drivers left waiting on pit road
to qualify, Said stood alone at
the top of the board. Mayfield
sat third and Waltrip was
fifth. Following the cancella-
tion, all three drivers were
sent packing.
That put Jeff Gordon, who
had qualified 30th, on the
pole, thanks to his points
lead.
How do you deny a man's
great effort? How does a guy
like Said come in, with a car
built faster than the rest of
the field, have to go home?
What about Waltrip, who

Maybe there's a Pepsi con-

pay NASCAR a nice chunk of
change to make this their title
race. And Gordon did have a
Pepsi paint scheme for the
race. Make you wonder why
NASCAR couldn't wait to run
14 more cars.
Face it, Said got robbed
worse than an unguarded
Brinks truck in Times Square.
It's the drama that's keeps
us coming back to the track.
Take my girlfriend for exam-
ple. Just a few years removed
from the ritzy life of Eastern
Long Island, chances of her
watching, let alone attending,
a NASCAR race were about as
likely as me sitting at home
watching a Lifetime movie.
Next thing you know, she's
in Daytona, dressed in Juan
Pablo Montoya gear and cry-
ing, yes crying, in the stands
after he wrecked midway
through the race. As I tried to
brighten her spirits when he:;;.
came back out a lap later, she
sobbed "He's broken!" after
seeing the right front fender


missing.
How dramatic!
NASCAR wants fair competi-
tion, right? Canceling qualify-
ing when it's 90 percent done
is not fair. Allowing Hendricks
to continue to dominate is
not fair.
I say, if you start it, make
sure you finish it. Take after
the old Interrational Race of
Champions (IROC) races and
prepare each car equally.
This way there are no
cheats, no "he who has the
deepest pockets wins," and no
more sending people home
wondering why great drivers
like Montoya get ripped off by
someone who can't drive and
those who should have been
in the race in the first place
were watching it on their
couches.
Ah, the drama of racing.


R research has shown previ-
ously that dark chocolate
can lower your blood
pressure. However, new
research has shown that it
really doesn't take a lot of
chocolate to do it.
With as little as two
Hershey's kisses a day, study
participants were found to
have significantly lowered
their blood pressure compared
to control groups.
The study was recently pub-
lished in the Journal of the
American Medical Association.
Other proven non-drug meth-
ods. for lowering blood pres-
sure are losing weight and eat-
ing less salt.

Maintain Proper
Fluid Intake

During the hot summer
months, athletes are typically
encouraged to drink all that
they can, in order to avoid


\.

overheating and dehydration.
However, this advice has
some critics, for too much
fluid intake can be a bad
thing. Athletes are often told
that by the time that they get
thirsty, they are already way
behind in their fluids, and
from that point on they are
simply trying to catch up.


Thus, they are typically
instructed to drink as much as
they can as early as they can.
There is concern about too
much fluid intake, for people
can fall into a condition
called hyponatremia, in which
the blood becomes "watered.
down," which can drop the
salt (sodium) concentration to
dangerous levels. This causes
the brain to swell, and you
can develop seizures, and loss
of consciousness.
It is certainly less common
than dehydration, but people
should be aware of the danger.
So how do.you know how
much fluid is too much?
Leslie Bohci, MPH, RD,
director of sports nutrition at
the University of Pittsburgh
and with the Pittsburgh
Steelers recommended guide-
lines are 20 ounces of fluid
before exercise, and over the
course of every hour of exer-
cise drink between 28 to 40
ounces of fluid.








Fluid intake
before, during
and after exercise
can effect per-
formance,
according to
research. Those
studies also show
10* too much liquid
can be as harmful
as too little.
Finding the right
Balance is key.


Bonci's research has shown
that sports drinks are best, for
they do provide nutrients and
carbohydrates to fuel exercise.
Thp easiest way to monitor
intake is by checking your
body weight. You should
replace what you sweat. So,
weigh yourself before and
after exercise.
If you have lost weight, you
are low on fluids on.need to
replace them.
This is an excellent recom-
mendation to high school
coaches and trainers to keep
their players safe.
Finally, Bonci recommends
that you don't forget about
salt replacement. During a
season of intense exercise and
sweating, adding some extra
salt to your food can help in
addition to the replacement
with sports drinks.

Smoking Linked to Arthritis

As if there was not enough
research already to show a
plethora of reasons not to
smoke, a recent Mayo Clinic
study found smokers were
three times more likely than
non-smokers to develop carti-
lage loss of the knee.
It is believed that smoking
may speed cartilage loss by
heightening inflammation or
by that elevated CO levels
may impair cartilage nutri-
tion, making it more likely to
sustain injury or damage.

Move your body!


Stretching is vital for muscle health and fitness


ou've been told to do it
your entire life. You did
it before Little League
practice and in P.E. class grow-
ing up, but chances are you
don't do it too often now.
Although everyone knows
they should stretch regularly,
few people know why it's so
important and fewer people
actually practice it. Yet, even if
you do not work out at all,
stretching five minutes a day
can improve your quality of
life in the present-and ensure
that you don't live in pain for
future years. Let me explain.
Your muscles are in constant
tension with each other in

i it becomes


stressful for your spine because
that position disables the sup-
port system meant to help
hold your head up. This causes
the tight neck and shoulders
which so many people suffer
from.
If you are an active person,
stretching can help you
achieve your goal faster
whether it be losing weight,
gaining muscle or improving
performance.
Each one of your muscles is
made up of several hundred
muscle fibers, which work
together to contract that mus-
cle. When a muscle becomes
tightened and weakened, often
it is because several of those
muscle fibers will clump
together in adhesions, which
are the same knots that a mas-
sage therapist tries to break up.
When muscle fibers are in
an adhesion it essentially turns
those fibers "off," so they are
not helping to contract the
muscle. Many people have
entire muscles that are func-
tionally off, especially if they
have been inactive for some
time.
Stretching helps to break up
these adhesions and turn the
muscles back on, which is
good for several things. If you
are trying to lose weight, if
more muscles are on and func-
tioning, more calories are
burned throughout the day,
which is one reason why
resistance training will increase
your metabolism.
If you are trying to gain
muscle, a muscle will not be
able to rebuild properly if it is
riddled with adhesions, hence
stretching will help you get
bigger gains.
For any kind of performance
training, keeping your body in
proper alignment will help
you function your best and is
paramount to preventing
injury.
So what happens if you
ignore all of this? The evi-
dence is all around you every-
where. An astounding number
of Americans.have some sort
of chronic pain problem -
with knee, shoulder and back

lose the ability to move in dif-
ferent planes of motion, which
causes a whole new set of
problems.
Ever wonder why so many
elderly people fall down?
Believe it or not, age has little
to do with it. Over the years
many people allow themselves
to become less and less active
and flexible and they lose the
Ability to twist and reach with-

minutes a day stretching and
see for yourself.

Here are five stretches that
most people need to do regu-

whether to do them before or

to that is that it doesn't matter
a whole lot, as long as you do
them.
Hold each for 30-40 seconds.

Distal Hamstrings: This is
the most commonly tight
muscle. Lie on your back and
wrap a towel or rope around
your foot and pull it up
towards your head. Try and
keep your knee as straight as
possible. If you are really tight,
you will feel it in your calf

Cross your outside foot over

over your head toward the
doorframe with your outside

sure to keep your hips point-

degrees against a wall or door

STAFF WRITER
Surfing, boogie boarding,
ocean kayaking and sail-
ing in a hobie cat were
first-time experiences for
many of the children who
participated in the Riding the
Wave of Autism surf camp
Monday and Tuesday in
Jacksonville Beach. And for
many of their parents, it was
the first time they had the
opportunity to cheer for their
children from the sidelines.
"I can't believe he's actually
surfing," said an elated
MaryJo Culliton of Ponte
Vedra as she watched her son,
Robbie, 11, balance on a surf-
board and ride a wave all the
way into shore.
"Many of these children
have never been able-to par-
ticipate in organized sports so
this is a wonderful thing."
The second annual camp
was presented by the City of
Jacksonville Beach and spon-
sored by Sunrise Surf Shop,
Ponte Vedra Rotary Club,
Beaches Rotary Clubs and
HEAL [Heal Every Austic Life]
based in Ponte Vedra. About
30 children participated in the
four-day camp [the first two-
day session was held in June].
Many of the instructors are
lifeguards and or EMTs who
work for the City of
Jacksonville Beach or Sunrise.
Many beaches residents like
Kim and Don Sears of
Jacksonville Beach and Bill
Holden of Neptune Beach vol-
unteered their time by help-
ing take children out on the
hobie cat and ocean kayaks.
"At first they have to get
into their comfort level but
once they get in the water it's
all smiles," said Holden, who
teaches fourth grade at Abyss
Park Elementary School.:
"The smiles on their faces is.
what it's all about."
Leslie Weed, a Ponte Vedra
resident who founded HEAL,
said the idea for the camp for
autistic children came from
Ponte Vedra dentist Don Sears
who visited a similar camp in
Hawaii.
"What'I love about this is
that I got a phone call from
Don and a couple of the guys
who spearheaded this and
they don't even have kids
with autism but they were
compelled to do this," said
Weed, whose daughter, Lanier,
9, has autism.
"There is something about
the water and being in the
ocean that the children just
love."
Autism is a neurological and
biological disability that
results from a disorder of the
human central nervous sys-
tem. The disease typically

Harry Potter movie is great fun


by STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
Right up front, I must admit that this is
a complete reversal of my negative review
of "Harry Potter 4." I've decided that, as
with the "Star Trek" movie series, the.odd-
numbered "Potter" films are the most
well-done. I can't wait for # 7.
In "Harry Potter and the Order of the
Phoenix," Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is
prone to sweat-inducing nightmares.
That's supremely ironic, since the movie
has the soft, satisfying sheen of a big,
beautiful dream.
When it comes to the movie adapta-
tions of J. K. Rowling's sprawling fantasy,
the weakest entries emphasize special
effects over character and emotion.
"Phoenix" isn't kidding around. Like the
best of classic Disney movies, it deals with
big, primal issues conquest of fear, fami-
ly separation, death, and most of all,
empowerment of a child in the face of
selfish, brutal adults.
The nasty adult in this entry even
worse, in her own way, than ultra-evil
Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) is a
petite but formidable bean-counter
named Dolores Umbridge (Imelda
Staunton).
Umbridge begins her tenure at Harry's
beloved Hogwarts school as the latest
Dark Arts professor. But, as with all
notable bureaucrats, Umbridge has a hid-
den agenda. She has been sent to
Hogwarts by the Ministry of Magic to
quell fears that Voldemort has returned.
Little by little, she micro-manages her way
through Hogwarts, until she is running
the school and keeping the students from


Beaches Museum

hosts hurricane

party Saturday
The Beaches Museum will throw its
second annual Hurricane Party on
Saturday beginning at 7 p.m.
There will be a DJ and old beach
music, a dance floor, and typical "sur-
vival fare." Plus, those attending can
purchase libations and even wear hurri-
cane gear usually kept tucked away in
the closet.
":[We'll] throw caution to the winds
and dare another hurricane to strike,"
said museum director Holly Beasley.
The party goes hand in hand with the
annual hurricane exhibition; entitled
Hurricanes III: Dora the Destroyer.
Fifteen photographs depicting Dora's
path of destruction here in 1964 are on
the museum's lobby walls.
Along that same line, Sun, Sand, &
Swimsuits is on exhibit in the
Dickinson Gallery. The exhibit is a,
review of swimwear at the beaches from
the turn of the 20th century to today.
Upstairs, the Reading Room will be
transformed for the evening into a
"Get-Away Games & Gossip Room."
Tickets are $10 for members and $15
for nonmembers if purchased in
advance. At the door, add $5 each, or
join BAHS and save $5. For informa-
tion or to reserve a ticket, call 241-5657

Proceeds from this party benefit the
Beaches Area Historical Society.


learning any manner of defense against
Voldemort.
Harry soon goes "underground" to
teach his peers in the wizarding skills that
Hogwarts is supposed to be teaching.
(Intentional or not, the commentary on
our current, beleaguered school system is
right on target.)
Everything about this mo\ie is glon-
ous. The entire cast is pitch-perfect.
Michael Goldenberg's scnpt, crisp direc-
tion by David Yates, Nicholas Hooper's
lovely score, and especially Slawomir
Idziak's burnished photography, are all
tops.
The surest sign of the mo\ie's success is
the way it includes off-hand moments
that other big-budget flicks might have
ignored. Just one example is the neat
moment where Harry
one-ups the constantly
bullying Prof. Snape .,,-.
(Alan Rickman) and --
shows Snape he's just as .
vulnerable as Harry is. "-
Roger Ebert recently
remarked that we've
gotten to the point.
where 'elaborate special
effects should be just a
"topping" instead of
the entire meal. This
fifth "Harry Potter"
movie is the whole
enchilada.
"Harry Potter and
the Order of the
Phoenix" is rated PG-13
for several scenes of
intense imagery and
violence.

YBAG was formed in 1980 by Beasches renid's Judy Hulett and
Jane Bull as an outlet for their teenage daughters..
"The girls wanted to sing, dance, and act," Hendry says. "At the
time, therewas no outlet for that in the Beaches area. So Judy and
Jane went to the City of Jacksonville Beach, and with their sup-
port and funding, they put YBAG together."
Each summer, YBAG mounts a theater production and invites
local children and teenagers to audition. Anyone who auditions
receives a role in the play.
"We feel it's important to have a drug- and alcohol-free envi-
ronment where the youth of our community can come and learn
about the performing arts," Hendry says.
This years cast has 30 members, ranging from 9 to 19 years old.
They will devote six weeks to the plays rehearsal, with three-hour
sessions each weeknight.
Hendry acknowledges that the rehearsal process is demanding.
"You just dig deep, find the energy, and plow on through," she
says. ,
Hendry says the process gets easier as actors form bonds. "One
girl here was so nervous, she cried at the end of her first rehears-
al," Hendry says. "Now she's made 29 new friends."
Hendry is not the only YBAG veteran on this years production

Transformers is dreary, desperate and dumb


By STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
If nothing else,
"Transformers" deserves an
award for Most Audacious
Opening Credits. They tell us
that the movie was produced
"in association with Hasbro."
If you can think of a great
movie that was ever made by
a toy company, you're one up
on me.
This movie boasts 182 visu-
al-effects persons, 75 stunt-
persons, 74 persons in the art
department, 42 for sound,
and 22 for special effects.
They should get all the tribute
they can, because they do the
movie's heavy lifting.
Conversely, the movie has
one director, three writers,
and a handful of starring and
voice-over actors, and not
one of them suggests that he
knows what he's doing here.
"Transformers," of course,
is based on the popular TV-
cartoon/toy franchise of the
1980's. Said franchise's story
involved an ongoing clash
between two sets of robots --
the good-guy Autobots versus
the evil Decepticons -- both
of which could change shape
at will.
Since this isn't nearly
enough story to carry a fea-
ture, a dreary subplot
involves Sam (Shia LaBeouf),
a geeky high-schooler (Spider-


STEVE
BAILEY
REVIEWER
Man should sue for copyright
infringement), and Sam's
naive attempts to win over
Mikaela (Megan Fox), a babe-
licious classmate.
Because behemoth robots
can't possibly fight their bat-
tles on their own, they bring
their war to Earth -- where
one of them assume! the
shape of Sam's beat-up sports
car, so that Sam can help the
"nice" robots win their fight.
Even in the most generous
suspension of belief, there
isn't one moment in the
movie that suggests plausibil-
ity. Whether it's true or not,
I'm sick of seeing high
schools depicted solely in
terms of brainy geeks, the
buff jocks who torture them,
and the trophy
girlfriends.desired by both
groups. Ditto the parents who
are too clueless to see that an


entire alternate universe is
battling just outside their
front doors.
(Parent-moviegoer alert:
The movie's dumbest attempt
at comedy is Sam's mom's
5 exte-nded conversation: about,
self-griatification.)
Although the two movies
couldn't be more different,
"Transformers'" plot elements
are surprisingly similar to
those in "Live Free or Die
Hard." In both movies, an
evil group overtakes a nation-
al computer system. Both
films have numerous scenes
of perilous traffic jams and
crashes. And most sadly, both
of them amp up the volumes
of sound and carnage in order
to give cheap kicks to their
audiences.
Even so, "Transformers" is
the greater offender of the
two movies. Director Michael
Bay gives the game away by
holding most of his shots no
longer than two seconds, so
we can't see how cheesy the
special effects really are. And
he's of no help to his'actors -
especially Jon Voight (in yet
another dumb kiddie-movie
role) and LeBeouf
Hollywood 's flavor of the
moment, though this movie
offers no evidence in his
favor).
Message to Hollywood : We
know you guys aren't big on
originality, but really, are


Willis is winning in Live Free


By STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
I have never felt so much
like a film-studies professor as
I did at a screening of "Live
Free or Die Hard." As people
around me whooped and
hollered at Bruce Willis' every
destructive act, all I could
think of were some of the
movie's ramifications.
First off, what does that
title really mean, anyway? If,
say, we don't necessarily want
to live in America, is our only
alternative to be tortured and
killed?
Did you see the recent
"Simpsons" episode that par-
odied the TV series "24"? The
big joke was that the mass
destruction caused by the
hero was worse than the
chaos he was trying to pre-
vent. I got that same feeling
watching a Pentagon fighter
plane systematically destroy-
ing a freeway bridge while
trying to kill a presumed
enemy.
My biggest problem with
the movie is that its premise
doesn't wear well in a post-
9/11 world. The story is that
Thomas Gabriel (Timothy


Olyphant) is a former
Homeland Security exec who
is ousted from Washington
when he tries to prove how
vulnerable America 's security
is. As vengeance, Gabriel has
computer hackers unknow-
ingly create a versatile virus
that will destroy America 's
infrastructure, and then his
assassins kill the unwitting
hackers.
Fortunately, one of the
hackers, smart-mouthed Matt
Farrell (Justin Long), stays
alive just long enough to
come under the protection of
ever-reluctant hero John
McClane (Willis, back in his
fourth "Die Hard" outing at
age 52).
Surprisingly, Willis is as
game and winning as
Sylvester Stallone was in his
recent, sixth "Rocky" outing.
And some of the stunts are
genuinely impressive.
S(I must admit, though, that
my favorite sequence was less
tech-savvy, but far impressive,
than the rest of the movie. It
involves the erstwhile terror-
ists creating a video warning
by stringing together sound-
bites from U.S. presidents,
past and present.)


But the villain's main char-
acter trait is what finally
spoiled my enjoyment of the
movie. As with the other "Die
Hard" movies, we're meant to
cheer on McClane's solo bat-
tle against a well-armed bad
guy. But this particular villain
actually tried to help our
country and was kicked in the
pants for his efforts.
So I found myself agreeing
with two pieces of dialogue
that were meant to be ironic.
One is where Gabriel tells
McClane, "You got it all
wrong. I'm the good guy..I
tried to help my country, and
I was crucified for it!"
The other is where McClane
and Farrell emerge from the
villain's latest attempt to kill
them, and McClane implores
Farrell, "Help me win." Farrell
looks at the rubble around
him and replies, "Does this
look like we're even close to
winning?"
Points taken, gentlemen.

"Live Free or Die Hard" is
rated PG-13 for adult language
and graphic scenes of violence,
destruction, and killing.


even 1980's nostalgia buffs
this desperate to re-live their
childhoods?

"Transformers" is rated PG-
13' for numerous' scenes ofl
i graphic violence,o some' Oaduilt
laniiage, anid the aforemen-
tioned sex conversation.

UF turfgrass researchers release slow-grow, low-mow grass


by MICKIE ANDERSON
CONTRIBUTOR
Imagine life with fewer
Saturday afternoons stuck
behind a noisy lawn mower.
The University of Florida's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences has
released a 'new slow-growirng
tu ~itas' tha'tSoL0'ma yv' b 6ib
to buy as early as next year.
And you can put down that
fertilizer bag: The new St.
Augustinegrass variety's finer
leaf blade and dark green hue
make for a prettier lawn and
it's far more resistant to sap-
sucking, lawn-killing chinch
bugs than current varieties.
"We are quite pleasantly
surprised by this grass," said
Paul Grose, general manager
of King Ranch, a company
,testing the grass in Belle
Glade, Fla., and. Texas. "It
seems to have a lot of bene-
fits. Besides being a chinch
bug-resistant variety, it's got
real good color, good density
and a good root system.
"And from what the con-
sumer sees, we feel like it's
going to be a kind of grass
that's going to require less
mowing," he said.

Five ways to get made in the shade


Let's talk about scotch whisky


(Editor's note: The different
spellings of "whiskey" and
"whisky" in this column are cor-
rect.)
If you want a tutorial on
scotch whisky, here's your
chance.
Signatory Scotch the
largest purchaser of scotch in
the world and supplier to
many of the well-known
blended scotch brands -
offers a line of single-malt
scotches that are, with the
exception of the proof (alco-
hol percentage), just as they
came from the aging barrel.
It is not commonly known
that virtually every brown
whiskey in the world uses a
coloring agent that darkens
whiskey products to a per-
ceived more palatable brown-
ish color, Signatory does not.
Most often that coloring agent
is caramel, which in addition
to adding color, also adds a
wee bit of sweetness.
Signatory purchases and
bottles these whiskys by
region from single malt pro-
ducers so that a consumer can
readily discover the sensory
differences of single malts
made in different regional
styles. All of their single malts
are bottled at 80 proof and are
priced at about $30 for a
750ml bottle. In addition, all
of the whiskys exhibit virtual-
ly clear colors that seemed
incongruent with the bold,
expressive flavors.

tasted it next to the
Glenrothes, and you could
taste the caramel, which cov-

Dear Jane,
I have a fair complexion but
love the outdoors. Any tips for
avoiding too much sun this
summer?
Rhonda K.
Dear Rhonda,
IQ the summertime.-mort 6 "
us look forward to spending as
many hours as possible bask-
ing in the season's good
weather. Picnics, pool parties
and backyard barbecues are
among the joys of summer,
but too much time in the sun
spells bad news. Sun exposure
ages your outdoor furniture,
not to mention your skin. It
doesn't take long for a few
hours in the sun to translate
into a nasty sunburn or worse,
heatstroke.
If sun exposure is prevent-
ing you from celebrating the
best part of the year, think
about incorporating some
shade into your outdoor
space. The possibilities are
endless and don't have to be
ugly or expensive. In addition
to providing an escape from
the sun, pergolas, awnings
and canopies can add some
flair to your backyard, so con-
sider this an opportunity to
redecorate and have some fun.
Pergolas
Reminiscent of an English
garden, a pergola can provide
your outdoor space with shade
and a touch of class. Pre-fabri-
cated pergolas are available at
home improvement stores for
about $600 and up and some
models even claim that no
tools are needed for assembly
(but where's the fun in that?).
Super-skilled Janes can simply
build their own and then fin-
ish it off by painting it the
color of their choice, while
Janes with a green thumb can
tame climbing plants to dress
it up.

'Be Jane'
These versatile shade-makers
can be utilized during the
hottest parts of the day and
then pulled back by turning a
crank or flipping a switch after
the sun has set. Fabric is
mounted to a framework per-
manently attached to your
home, which can be minimal-
ly obtrusive depending on
what model you opt for. The
best part is that the fabric can
be changed easily should it
succumb to storm damage, but
the framework is harder to
mend. If you are in the market
for a retractable canopy, shop
around a little beforehand and
check out consumer reviews.
Installing a retractable canopy
is something that should be
left to a professional.
Canopy Awnings
A more permanent version
of the retractable canopy,
these are great for those who
want to shun the sun. Like the
retractable canopy, the frame
is attached to the house, sus-
pending a durable piece of
fabric. Again, installing a
canopy awning should be left
to a professional, especially if
the model is on the large side.
The difference is that the
canopy cannot be easily
removed, and should really
only come down when the


season comes to an end, that
is, if you live in a climate with
harsh winters. Because it has
less moving parts, it's more
durable than the retractable
canopy.
Portable Canopies
Portable canopies are pop-
ping up everywhere and it's
-, ppwpnderwhy: They are
: attractive, inexpensive and
portable. These four-post
structures are available at
department and home
improvement stores with vari-
ous amenities (screens, cur-
tains and shelves for plants, to
name a few). It takes more
than one person to assemble
and raise a durable portable
canopy, and once it's up be
sure to secure it should heavy
winds strike.
Foliage
The most basic shade-pro-
viding structure on the planet
is the tree. Not only are you
making the backyard more liv-
able during those hot summer
days, but you are also doing
something for the Earth.
Magnolias, elm, oak and
sycamore are all trees that will
provide ample shade, though
it will take many years if you
are buying them young. Tall
tropical plants with large
leaves can accomplish the
same task; just make sure that
your climate zone can handle
such flora.
Adding a bit of shade to
your backyard is like giving
your home an extra room.
There you can eat, drink, and
entertain all the while protect-
ed from harmful UV rays.
Good weather isn't around for
long, so why not get the most
out of it while it's here?

the


Casters make it easy to


move items


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST
Do you ever have a good
idea and wonder what
took you so long to
think of it? In our household
we have garage wars. By their
very nature, garages are empty
spaces that beg to be filled.
However, it's an ongoing battle
to keep the garage tidy and
serviceable. Part of the problem
is the need for large areas of
space that are taken up by table
saws, bicycles and other garage-
related mess. Well, this one
idea will have you making the
space in your garage more serv-
iceable when you need it and
can be incorporated inside your
home, too.
The need for
seed
e all need to make things
easier and better in our lives -
there's no doubt about that. -
When we need to get to some-
thing or use something, we
should be able to get to it.
That's not the case very often
in a garage. Over five years ago
I gave my husband a large table
saw as a present. That table saw
never came out of the box until
this spring and when it finally
did get set up, it filled up a
large part of the garage. We
park one car in the garage, but
if we ever needed to park the.
other car in the garage for an
event such as a hurricane, we'd
be stuck because this behemoth
is too large to move. That's


in garage
when the idea struck. I told my
dear husband, Tim, let's mount
the saw to a board that has
casters underneath and then
we can move it around the
garage easily or move it out
onto the driveway when we're
working on big projects.
Do wheelies
Tim got to work and cut two
pieces of thick plywood and
screwed them together and
then he affixed casters to the
plywood. We put the saw on
top of the plywood, and voila!
The saw was a cinch to move.
The idea was pure genius. Now,
we can move the table saw
anywhere we need it. In fact,
the idea was so good, the band
saw also got its own table and
caster arrangement.
Affixing wheels to large items
helps you to move them
around easily and that saves
your back. And when it came
time to cut plywood for our
windows so we're prepared for
the next hurricane, we were
able to wheel the table saw
onto the driveway effortlessly.
Cast away
indoors
As you can see, the garage is
a wonderful place to add cast-
ers ... and so is the house.
Adding casters indoors helps
you to move things faster and
easier and with much less
effort. Apply casters to
ottomans and small tables.
Casters on the bottoms of
chairs will help you to move
them and vacuum underneath.
Don't like wheels on your
chairs? Then apply stick-on
sliders. They're oh every chair
and sofa in my house and
everything slides and moves
easily, making rearranging a joy
now and not a pain in my hus-
band's back. I can even move
sofas easily by myself. Have
some storage boxes under your
bed? Casters applied to a small
piece of plywood can be placed
under the bed, giving you easy
pull-out storage.

Flat tires.

No longer a valid excuse for being late.


BMW 3 Series with Run-flat tires
Leave it to the company of ideas to help create the best spare tire of all an unnecessary one. With Run-
flat tires, standard on the BMW 3 Series, we've made changing a flat tire on the side of the road a thing of
the past.Thanks to integrated reinforcements, if these tires ever experience a loss of air pressure, they con-
tinue to maintain their shape and full use. In fact, they can be driven for up to 150 miles at reduced speeds.
So now when you look in the trunk, all you'll find is less weight and more cargo room. To experience first-
hand how great ideas like these live on to become ultimate driving machines, visit your local BMW dealer
for a test drive.
