Residents of a Jacksonville Beach condo-
minium are asking the city for curb a
series of crashes that damaged cars and
destroyed the building's concrete wall.
Rebecca Finn, who lives in the Seascape
Condominium at Ocean Drive and 16th
Avenue South, appealed to the City Council
this week to install bollards to help drivers see
the stop sign at the intersection. Bollards are
defined as a series of posts with reflective
material that prevent vehicles from entering
an area.
Beginning today, some changes will be
made, according to the city.
"We will be putting in highly reflective
reflectors that will be positioned in a way to be
real visible," said Dave McDonald, streets
supervisor. A reflective double arrow will be
put in at 16th Avenue SouthTwice in the last
week Finn said the concrete wall surrounding
the parking lot was damaged during two sepa-
rate crashes.

counts of DUI involving property damage and

Salt Creek asks for

JB $ for trees cut

The Salt Creek Homeowners
Association asked Jacksonville
Beach this week for $2,600
the association said it needs
to repair damage from
overzealous tree-trimming by
Beaches Energy Services.
Irene Lombardo, secretary
for the Ponte Vedra Beach
homeowner's association,
asked for the money Monday
at the meeting of the
Jacksonville Beach City
She said that in late 2005,
Beaches Energy mowed vege-
tation and cut the tops off
trees in a utility easement that
separates Salt Creek Drive and
Solana Road and did so with-
out notifying Salt Creek, as
"They not only cut every-
thing down in the easement,
they [also] . sheared off
trees that are on the Salt
Creek Drive side," Lombardo
said in a telephone interview
"They pruned them in such
a way that they simply
sheared off one side of the
The Salt Creek association
asked for the work to stop but
was told it was mandated,
Lombardo said.
Some of the sycamore, mag-
nolia and pine trees "were so
severely pruned that they
died," and had to be removed,
she said.
Further, the community's
stucco wall and posts were
damaged when tree limbs fell,
she said.
"And now, because they left
all the logs and debris in the
easement . they can't even
mow," she said.


Cont. from A-i
The man's vehicle slid
another 30 feet through the
parking lot and struck a
parked car before coming to
rest. Debris from the crash
also damaged two other vehi-
cles for a total loss of $20,000.
Four days later, Finn said
another vehicle crashed into
the wall again after runiiig
the stop sign. The damage was
not as extreme but the impact
has residents fearing their
own parking lot.
"We have about 14 resi-
dents who are now hesitant to
park in their spaces at all," she
said. "Had they been there
[during one of the accidents]
they would have been serious-
ly injured or killed."
Finn said she contacted the
city's Public Works
Department and was told that
some temporary measures
would be implemented to
bring attention to the stop
sign which must also be
realigned to become more vis-
"We are here to:ask that the

A $900 settlement check,
she said, was sent to the pre-
vious Salt Creek board from
Beaches Energy Services,
Jacksonville Beach's utility
department, which supplies
power to most of Ponte Vedra
Don Ouchley, director of
Beaches Energy Services, said
the trimming was done under
the Florida Public Service
Commission's mandate for
utilities to "harden" infra-
structure against storms.
All Beaches Energy's distri-
bution lines east of State Road
A1A are being put under-
ground in response to the
mandate, he said.
Also, concrete poles are
being installed "wherever
practical," and tree-trimming
is being done more often and
more aggressively than in the
past, Ouchley said.
The $900 check was a nego-
tiated amount, he said,
adding, "We thought that
took care of everything."
Lombardo said Salt Creek's
total cost which includes
consultation with an arborist,
repair of the wall and posts,
removal of dead trees and
their replacement comes to
$3,500. With the $900 sub-
tracted, the amount owed is
$2,600, she said.
"The homeowners in Salt
Creek should not have to bear
unnecessary costs" resulting
from the actions of Beaches
Energy, she said.
"Any damage we cause, we
restore," Ouchley said, adding
that the homeowner's associa-
tion will be contacted by
Beaches Energy.
"We're going, to try to
please our customers.

"We're creating a lifestyle
more than a development,"
designers said, explaining that
one of their goals was to create
a sense of community
between the residential and
golf course space.
"The open space injects
itself right into the fabric of
the town," said Bobby Weed,
of Weed Design, referring to
the golf course.
One of the architects
explained that they drew on
Atlantic Beach's architectural
history to design the three ele-
ments of the project, which
include a new Clubhouse, the
golf course and the proposed
residential development.
The golf course is posi-
tioned directly across from
most of the residential units
in order to give the feeling
that it is an extension of the
community, the team said.
The PUD proposes five dif-
ferent housing styles ranging
from cottages to estates with
the estates being more large-
scale and visible from the golf
course. A total of 87 homes
will be located in the Atlantic
* Beach city limits and 22 will
be in Jacksonville.
Planners said they used ele-
ments such as porches, over-
hangs and courtyards to
reflect the architectural style
in Atlantic Beach.
Landscape architects may
integrate more than 200 hard-
wood trees and approximately
400 palm trees to maintain
the city's tree canopy and they
said there will also be exten-
sive buffering where neces-

which determined that there

Letters to the editor:

Drive-thru will

be a benefit but

Wal-Mart won't

To the editor:
This is a response to Mrs.
Pardee's letter of sarcastic rant
about the new Starbucks'
Drive-Thru on the corner of
Third Street and Atlantic
Boulevard and how she was
surprised that no one was out-
raged with the news of the
former Wachovia ATM drive-
thru being used by Starbucks.
This does not "outrage" the
people because this drive-thru
will help with parking in that
little shopping center area
where parking is at a mini-
Most people that go to
Starbucks in the morning are
usually on their way to work
and the drive-thru will help
more people move more
quickly to their destination,
so actually the traffic would
stay about the same. Hence
the meaning of a, "Drive-
Another good point is, it
will help to free some parking
spaces for the other stores in
the immediate area.
And by the way, if Starbucks
was going to hurt Shelby's, it
would have done.that a long
time ago but really a lot of
people, including myself, go
to both places since Shelby's
not only has coffee but other
food items as well.
Most of the people who fre-
quent Starbucks are local to
Neptune Beach and Atlantic
Beach aid that is really all.
Now Wal-Mart on the other
hand will have more traffic
because Neptune Beach not

only will see traffic from
Atlantic Beach but the resi-
dents of Mayport,
Jacksonville Beach, and
Jacksonville proper when we
get the people from town who
are out here for the beach,
therefore the traffic on
Atlantic Blvd will rise because
of Wal-mart and I can't image
what it will be like at the hol-
Also, you mentioned about
the crime report at the
Starbucks Drive-Thru and
how you can't wait to see
those reports. In comparison,
there haven't been any crime
reports in Jacksonville Beach
with the little Java Hut in
recent years so I doubt there
will be a lot of crime at this
little drive-thru. There are
many articles and research
material that states the aver-
age rate of police incidents at.
a Wal-mart is 400 percent
higher than most stores that
are equivalent to them have
in their parking lots.
So, Mrs. Pardee, you wanted
a Wal-mart and pushed for
one when many in Neptune
Beach did not and we have to
live with that,. so now you
need to live with the
Starbucks Drive-Thru. And by
the way, I'd rather look at a
Starbucks drive-thru than the
building where Neptune
Beach's illustrious Council is

Coffee shop fear is misplaced

on this community?

to cloud her judgement.

Children in a small home

have to learn social skills

oy, houses are getting
huge these days. I offer a
According to the U.S. Census
Bureau, the average new home
grew to 2,434 square feet in
2005 from 1,660 square feet in
1973. Houses of 3,000 square
feet and well beyond --
"McMansions" -- represent a
quarter of all new home con-
That got me to thinking
about the house I grew up in.
As it went, in 1964, we'd
been living in an 850-square-
foot ranch, one built with GI
Bill money after World War II.
I was two then, the youngest of
three, and my mother was
pregnant with my sister Lisa.
We were in dire need of a big-
ger house.
One day as my father (the
Big Guy) drove home from
work, he noticed a house was
,beingb;ijlt in,. xaei ,housing
plq,. He, stopppedthee car and
'paid a visit to the builder.
The house hadn't been sold
yet, he learned. The builder
was eager to sell, and the Big
Guy, relying on the same "I'm-
broke-as-hell-buddy" tech-
niques he used to buy cars,
negotiated several extras as
part of the deal.
There must have been a rule
in the early 1960s that every
house built in the suburbs
should have a brick facade on:
the bottom and white alu-
minum siding on the top, and
our box-shaped house was no
exception. It had four. bed-
rooms, one full bathroom and
one half-bathroom.
It was all of 1,500 square
My parents began improving
the place right away. The Big
Guy planted grass, trees and
shrubs, while my mother,

'painted and wallpapered. They
built a family room in the base-
ment. They added a concrete
porch with roof out back, a
porch that never wanted for a
cool breeze.
By 1974, we had six children
and the house was bursting at
the seams. The Big Guy sold
some stock he inherited and
added on a fifth bedroom and
full bath on the first floor --
creating a 1,700-square-foot
We did a lot of living there.
For.34 years the front door was
never locked,' and friends and
relatives came and went at all
hours. We had a million birth-
day parties and family gather-
ings there. Every emotion
under the sun -- love, anger,
joy, sadness -- took place there.
I remember how the Big Guy
loved, to nap on his favorite
recliner on the back porch.

And how Jingles, our dog,
rushed out from under the
shrubs to greet me. And how
sometimes after dinner Sunday
nights, my five sisters and.I sat
around the kitchen table
laughing and sharing stories.
The modest size of the house
forced us to live together --
there was simply no way to
avoid each other. We, had to
learn how to share-- certainly
how to negotiate -- and how to
get along, all valuable skills to
have in life.
And never once did we feel
our home was small.
I don't understand how so
many families do it now, They
have fewer kids and much big-
ger houses -- houses that are
sometimes so large their inhab-
itants don't often come across
each other. .
Maybe that's the difference.
When we were. kids, our par-
ents,,ladeP their decisions

ues, our future. They didn't

But today too many folks are
caught up in the material trap

homes to impress. Sure, there's
always been a need to "keep up
with the Joneses" but, man, if
today's houses are any meas-
ure, it's all we're thinking
about ,

designed to reduce the victim-

groups. It investigates com-

As of January of this year,
Seniors VS Crime has returned
over $5 million to our older cit-

dealing with a local tree cutting
service. A representative of this
company cut down a tree in
late April or early May for a cost
over $200. On Sunday, May 27,
a male and female representing
the same tree service showed up
and wanted to cut down anoth-
er tree for half price. The elder-
ly female, who was home alone,
agreed thinking the cost would
be around $100. After complet-
ing the job, the female worker
told the woman the cost was
$300. The female was confused
and felt that she needed to pay
the $300. The next day, this
woman had to transfer money
from their savings account to

their checking account to cover
the costs. The couple felt taken
advantage and overcharged.
The volunteer staff of Seniors
VS Crime will collect all docu-
ments and other information
about the case and will discuss
the matter further with the
company in hopes of getting all
or at least part of the couple's
money back for them.
Seniors VS Crime began as a
small organization, primarily
on the East Coast of Florida,
and has now grown statewide
with over 2,000 Senior Sleuths
with new sleuths being added
daily. They are exploring new
ways all the time in assisting
other seniors. While methods

too gullible

To the editor:
The 'elimination of the
Mayport Ferry is an irresponsi-
ble act by elected officials that
not only jeopardizes the safety
of residents, but it is a matter of
national security and defense.
During a natural disaster it is the
only means of evacuation for

gency the Mayport Ferry is an
integral link for Mayport Naval
Base personnel to return to their

The function of local govern-
ment is to provide for the
Health, Safety and Welfare of
the citizens and ONLY supply
those services the people cannot
supply for themselves, i.e.,

Rescue and Emergency Medical
Services, Public Health
(Hospitals; Community Health
Centers, Disease 'Control,
Mosquito Control, Animal
Control, Environment,
Protection, etc.), Schools,
Governmental Central.

(Highways, clean water, sewage
services, trash removal),
Planning & Zoning (Building
Permits & Licenses, Zoning &
Code Enforcement), Electricity,
Social Programs (long and short
terms for those unable to pro-
vide for themselves), etc.
Local government should
acquire land for public use, but
not maintain structures (yeah,
they should cut the grass like
everyone else-that's Public
Works job). Sorry, but no bike
paths,:horse trails, parks & recre-
ation, senior citizen centers, free
landscaping, just to mention a
few. If a community wants these
things, they should be allowed
to buil them on public land:
.(accrHifit to 'existing "cod's)'"
and maintain them at their own
philanthropic expense, but still
owned by government. My
God! Is that socialism, commu-
nism, dictatorship, or what?
This will never happen. Why?
Because, only essentials are pro-
vided, and government would
be inexpensive. There is not'a
politician in the world that
wants to outrage the Grey
Panthers (senior citizens who
want everything for nothing-
I'm one), bikers, equestrians
(horle people), Community
Associations, Arts & Crafts
enthusiasts, tree huggers, etc.
My sarcasm is surely perspicu-
ous. We impose term limits,
require "part time" elected offi-
cials receive unlivable salaries,
do not elect people to represent
us where they live ("At Large"
representatives), divide commu-
nities with redundant expendi-
tures -(Intralocal Agreement -
Beaches police departments, a
fire department, mayors, city
councils, public works), we
maintain autonomy for services
provided (JSO, JEA, JTA, etc.),
allow some of these bodies and
groups the ability to impose tax-
ation without representation or
answerable to "We the People"
(JEA, JTA, etc.), etc.
Why are we so stupid?
Because we are gullible and
believe politicians in their spin
campaigns, and allow them to
convince us we need THEIR
FIEFDOMS! Eliminate Term
Limits; Eliminate the Intralocal
Agreement (a redundancy of
cost); Pay elected officials a liv-
able salary (and require them to
work full time) so they can raise
families and give up their SPE-
Large" representatives and
require elected people to live in
their district; Eliminate agencies
headed by independent bureau-
cracies (JSO, JEA, JTO, etc.). Any
official/agency whose budget
comes from the Mayor and City
Council should be appointed
and dismissed by same!
What would happen if we did
these things? We would still'
have Beaches communities and
services. However, we would

have ONE representative gov-
ernment headed by a Mayor
(Executive) and his cabinet
(Police Chief, Fire Chief, Public
Works Director, etc.), all
approved by the City Council
(Legislative), courts (Judicial),
better economical services, and
elected officials that would have
to respond to the electorate to
keep their jobs. Think!

but we plan to look at it"
Carpenter said the plans to

relocate the existing A1A traffic
signal at 36th Avenue South to
37th Avenue South have gener-
ated concerns about traffic and
safety in the area.
Residents have also com-
plained that constructing a
raised median at 36th Avenue
South and.a new access road
from 36th Avenue South to
Jacksonville Drive will force
more traffic into the residential
Richard Wallace, who lives
near the 37th Avenue South
and Ponte Vedra Boulevard
intersection, said at a meeting
held last Thursday at City Hall
that the changes will impact
his ability to simply get in and
out of his driveway.
"This will dump more traffic

from the neighborhoods onto
37th Avenue South," he said,
noting that there are no provi-
sions included to help pedestri-
ans safely the beach.
Bob Johnson, who resides
one block from 36th Avenue
South and 2nd Street, said
eliminating the left turn move-
ment will force motorists to
travel north to First Street
which is a one-way street.
He suggested having signals
at 36th and 37th Avenues
South to mitigate congestion
but the distance could violate
the proximity requirements.
"I don't dispute the need for
a light at 37th," Ponte Vedra
Circle resident Sam Veal said.
"But I can't in my reasonable
logic find a reason to take out

the one at 36th."
Veal said if the changes are
implemented, .cars will be
forced down to Ocean Drive
which, he said, can "barely
handle a single car much less
an increased frequency of more
than two vehicles."
"It ain't much of a street,"
said resident Thad Mosely who
also opposed the changes.
"That's for sure."
Carpenter said the DOT will
not put the project out for bids
until the summer, 2008.

Man at ATM robbed by gunmen,

knocked out, left in empty lot

An armed robbery in Atlantic
Beach left a man unconscious
for approximately 15 hours,
after which he woke up in an
abandoned lot, according to a
police report.
The victim told police that
on the morning of July 7, three
men driving on Aquatic Drive
turned and pulled up next to
him after he made a withdraw-
al from a nearby bank's ATM.
The men, in a yellow vehicle,
pointed a gun at the victim
and demanded his money and
ATM cards, according to the
police report.
The victim was hit in the
back of the head and knocked
unconscious. He woke up
around midnight, approxi-
mately 15 hours after the inci-

dent, in an abandoned lot,
according to the report.
The victim then walked back
to the bank, located in the
1000 block of Atlantic
Boulevard, retrieved his bike
and rode to the police station
to report the incident.
He had a bump on the back
of his head, but refused med-
ical treatment, according to the
Several unauthorized trans-
actions were made oq the vic-

Up at the crack of dawn

Father, son go to work early to commemorate the day

Angelo Hemandez, Sr. was on
his way to work one morning,
glanced at a magnificent sunrise
and a business concept dawned
on him. Now, he rises each
morning before the sun.
Hemandez started Florida
Sunrises, with his son Angelo
Hernandez, Jr. The pair take
pictures of Florida's sunrises
each morning and sell the
prints to customers who wish to
commemorate a special day,
such as a wedding, birthday or
"It all started with a ride over
the Vilano Bridge," said
Hemandez, Jr. referring to his
father and how the business
Hernandez, Sr. became so
inspired that he pulled his car
over and went to the beach to
watch the sunrise.
"Dad doesn't say a whole lot,
but when he does, he's either
about to say something really
powerful or you're about to
laugh really hard and that's how
this concept came about,"
Hemandez, Jr. said.
Hemandez Sr. told his son
that each day was a special day
for someone and that a sunrise
was a way to commemorate it.
"At first, I thought it was a
stupid idea," said Hemandez, Jr.
when his dad pitched the busi-
ness concept to him. "But,
then, I realized what a brilliant

.This is us

pursuing the

American Dream

Angelo Hernandez, Sr.

idea it was. No one goes out
there everyday. That's one day,
forever. It will never be the
same again."
Although Hemandez, Sr. does
not have a background in pho-
tography and Hemandez, Jr. has
dabbled in it as a hobby, the two
recognized that with today's
technology, it would still be
possible to capture the full beau-
ty of each sunrise. The pictures
are not altered at all,
Hemandez, Jr. said.
Hemandez, Sr. is responsible
for taking the photographs dur-
ing the week and his son takes
over on the weekends for flori-
"We're even out there when
the postman takes off," said
Hemandez, Jr.
The pictures are taken along
the coast, anywhere from
Atlantic Beach to Crescent
Beach, although most are taken
in the South Jacksonville Beach
and Ponte Vedra Beach area,
said Hemandez, Jr.
Although the business only
began in October, Hemandez,

Sr. began archiving photos as far
back as 2004.
The pair have marketed the
company at tradeshows, such as
the Southern Women's Show,
with the concept of "the perfect
gift," although it took a while
for the idea to take off, said
Hernandez, Jr.
"For so long, we would ask
people, 'when is your birthday'
and show them the picture and
then the light would come on,"
he said.
But, weddings and births
seem to be the most popular
occasions, according to
Hemandez, Jr.
The biggest challenge, accord-
ing to Hemandez, Jr., is explain-
ing to people that it is not an
immediate gift. People who
want to give a picture of a sun-
rise to a friend or family mem-
ber for a birthday, for example,
have to wait until the photo-
graph is ready.
The company customizes the
photos, which include framing,
matting and shipping if request-
ed. They charge $17 for each
print, according to Hemandez,
Customers can call ahead for
specific dates and the only time
a picture is unavailable is if the
weather does not permit,
Hernandez, Jr. said.
"This is us pursuing the
American Dream," Hemandez,
Jr. said. "When you watch it
once, it's so incredible."

Traditional Hebrew class is open to all

Although no longer a spo-
ken language, traditional
Hebrew is very much alive in
the observance and study of
"Hebrew is the language of
the Bible," said Rabbi
Nochum Kurinsky from
Chabad @ the Beaches. It
means "the holy tongue" and
is the original language in the
In the Bible, God spoke in
traditional Hebrew and creat-
ed the world. Only after the
Tower of Babel, was humanity
broken up into groups with
different languages, he said.
The Torah Scrolls used in
synagogues are hand written
in Hebrew by scribes. These
parallel the first five books in
the Christian Old Testament.
Jewish children often begin
learning Hebrew when they
are two or three years old,
just like they learn the ABC's,
said Kurinsky.
There are 22 letters in the
Hebrew alphabet, 5 end let-
ters, and 9 vowels.
The design of every letter
has meaning. Beyond that the
letters have multiple layers of
meaning which are "very pro-
found," said Kurinsky.
For example, the design of
the first letter of the alphabet,
aleph, shows the connection
between mankind and God,
he said.
Hebrew letters are written
from right to left to form
words. The words are also
read from right to left.
Books written in Hebrew
are printed in the same man-
ner with the first page begin-
ning with what would be
considered the last page in
Hebrew is a "logical lan-
guage..with basic rules."
Becoming fluent in Hebrew
takes a lot of practice and
study, said Kurinsky.
Rabbis study Hebrew in
Rabbinical Schools or
Yeshivas. Hebrew is used by
rabbis around the world to
communicate with each
other, since it is their com-
mon language.
Those attending services at
Chabad are kept. well
informed so they can follow
even if they do not know
Hebrew, said Kurinsky.
"It is not necessary to
understand Hebrew to be a

People can read the prayers
in English and many prayers
are prayed together but silent-
Reading -the prayers in
Hebrew will add more mean-
ing and enhance the prayer
experience, he said.
Kurinsky teaches a Hebrew
Reading course at Chabad.
The course is appropriate for
those with little or no knowl-
edge of Hebrew.
The next five-week course
begins on July 31.
The classes will give those
preparing for the High
Holidays in the fall a better
understanding of the Hebrew
prayers and a better ability to

pray in Hebrew, said
Non-Jews are also welcome
to attend.
At every previous course
that he has taught, Kurinsky
said non-Jews have always
been among the students.
They come because of their
own strong faith and an inter-
est in being able to study in
Hebrew. Or they come out of
curiosity, he said.

Crash Reading Course is $36.

The two languages are so
similar that it is possible for a
person speaking traditional
Hebrew to have a conversa-
tion with someone who is
speaking lvrit, he said.
Neither Biblical Hebrew or
Ivrit are the same as Yiddish.
Yiddish is a combination of
Hebrew and German formerly
spoken by European Jews.
Depending on where they
lived, Jews added words from
other languages like Russian
and. Hungarian to Yiddish,

"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 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 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.

Presumption of inno-
cence" is one of those
quaint, old-fashioned
terms that doesn't mean
much anymore. To most peo-
ple, O.J. Simpson was guilty
the day he was arrested and.
they feel the same way about
Michael Vick. Doesn't matter
what slick lawyers, attention-
craving judges and complete-
ly fogged juries do, in the
public's eyes O.J. will always
be a double-murderer and
Vick an abuser of dogs.

Doesn't take a financial
genius to understand that
spending someone else's
money is a lot better than
spending your own. So how
come none of these talking
heads on sports radio and
TV can figure out that if the
Yankees extend Alex
Rodriguez's contract now,
before he has a chance to
opt out at the end of the
season, the Texas Rangers
will still be on the hook for
about $22 million of the
deal? In the trade that sent
A-Rod to New, York, the, ,
Rangers agreed to pick up
$67 million of what was left
on his infamous 10-year,
$252 million contract. If
the Yankees can get
Rodriguez to extend his cur-
rent deal rather than writ-
ing up a new one, the bal-
ance Texas owes is $22 mil-

Make that five college foot-
ball preview magazine covers
featuring Gators QB Tim
Tebow. And with new ones
out every week, that number
will probably increase.

On July 7, ESPN's Chris
Mortensen breathlessly
reported that an indictment
of Michael Vick in the fed-
eral dogfighting probe was
"highly unlikely," accord-
ing to his impeccable
sources. Well, at least he
was first with that bit of
breaking news.

Here's a shocker: T-Mobile
rider Patrik Sinkewitz, of
Germany, tested positive for
high levels of testosterone
this week at the Tour de
France. In response, German
TV networks ZDF and ARD
have dropped coverage of the
event. That should teach offi-
cials not to catch cheaters
from Bavaria.

David Beckham's in the
U.S. Have you become a fut-
bol fanatic yet? What are
you waiting for?

Hall of Famer Gary Player
says he knows of ten golfers
who have taken steroids, but
he's sworn to secrecy and
cannot name them. That's
really useful, Gary. Got any
hot stock tips that you can't
tell us about, either?

The Yankees hosted one
of their renowned Old-
Timers' Days prior to a
game July 7 against the Los
Angeles Angles. But that'
day's starter, 44-year-old
Roger Clemens, is older
than five of those honored
during the ceremony,
including Paul O'Neill and
Scott Brosius.

Best bet for the weekend:
Former middleweight cham-
pion Bernard Hopkins returns
to the'ring to battle Winky
Wright on Saturday night in
Vegas. Hopkins is ending his
13-month retirement for a
final fight which he says will
cement his legacy as one of
boxing's greats.


Some people argue that college foot-
ball remains more popular in
Jacksonville than the NFL version. The
latest evidence is that 5,800 temporary
seats will be added to Jacksonville
Municipal Stadium for
the River City
Showdown on
Saturday, Sept. 29.
The game features P ?.
Florida State taking on --
Alabama and demand
for tickets has been so ^ --
great, the additional
seating was required.
According to Gator Bowl football
marketing director Erik Dellenback,
the seating plan calls for use of the
upper and lower portions of the south
end zone in the area referred to as the
"Bud Zone" during Jacksonville Jaguars
home games.
"The new seating configuration will
help us maximize seating, while ensur-
ing the comfort and safety of all the
fans," said Kelly Madison, 2007 Gator


Bowl chairman.
Tickets for the additional 5,800 seats
will be split evenly between the two
schools and are only available through
the University of Alabama or Florida
Gator Bowl Association president
Rick Catlett credits FSU
L athletic director David
Hart for coming up
with the idea of the
'kFp iRiver City Showdown.
S "Dave approached
Shis alma mater,,
Alabama, about the
29 idea before bringing it
to [us] for considera-
tion," said Catlett. "Alabama athletic
director Mal Moore eagerly accepted.
We loved the idea and are proud to
host this historic game."
That means this fall Jacksonville will
host two games between major college
football powers. The FSU-Alabama
contest will be followed by the tradi-
tional Georgia-Florida dust up on Oct.
The city will also host the ACC

Championship game for a third
straight year in December. In February,
the Atlantic Coast Conference
announced it was extending its agree-
ment with the city of Jacksonville to
host the event.
The inaugural ACC title game,
played in 2005, featured Florida State
topping Virginia Tech, 27-22. Last
year's game, played amidst steady rain
and soggy conditions, saw Wake Forest
capture its first league championship
since 1970 with a 9-6 victory over
Georgia Tech. Fletcher High grad and
current Demon Deacons placekicker
Sam Swank was named MVP of the
"We are pleased to extend our agree-
ment with Jacksonville and the Gator
Bowl Association to host the 2007
ACC Football Championship game,
league commissioner John Swofford
said in a statement.
"After discussions with our member
schools, it was obvious that everyone
has been delighted with Jacksonville's
hospitality throughout the first two
years as well as the Gator Bowl

Association's management of the
game. Our league has excellent rela-
tionships throughout Jacksonville and
we look forward to continuing those
relationships through the 2007 cham-
pionship game festivities."
It had been feared that the ACC
might look elsewhere for a venue to
stage its football title game after luke-
warm ticket sales last year. But those
sales appear to have much more to do
with which teams are playing than the
magnitude of the event.
For example, with a large Seminoles
following in this area, the 2005 ACC
title game was a near-sellout with
attendance of 72,749.
Last year, attendance was listed at
62,850 but inclement weather and a
minimal local following for the partici-
pating teams were factors.
Area college football fans cap their
season with the annual Gator Bowl in
Jacksonville. Last January saw the
Mountaineers of West Virginia rally for
a 45-23 win over Georgia Tech in am
exciting game played before a crowd of

The tournament starts with
pool play the first day, as
teams are placed into one of
the several eight-team pools
which guarantees each school
seven games.
Following pool play, the
teams will be seeded by their
overall records and placed in a
bracket for the championship
SAlthough the championship
tournament is single-elimina-
tion, there will also be a con-
solation bracket, meaning
teams will get a second chance
to keep playing and a guaran-
teed-minimum of nine games
at the tournament.
"It's a season's worth of
experience in three days,"
Howard said.
"It's quite an ordeal. It's
back-to-back competition the
whole time you're there. You
play nearly the equivalent of a
season in those three days."
Games are 22 minutes long,
with the clock running con-
tinuously for the first 20 min-
utes until the two-minute
warning, and then the game
goes on as it normally would.
There will be two Alabama
High School Athletic
Association referees on the
filed at all times.
Players don't tackle in 7-on-
7 football. Instead, a player is




down by a one-hand touch
"It's a tremendous experi-
ence for the players," Howard
said. "It's a great opportunity
to get out there and start
preparing for the season."
With nearly 44 teams from
nine states participating, com-
petition is expected to be
high. There is talk that the
event may be televised and
there will be numerous college

Simple steps can help prevent swimmer's ear

Q question: What is
swimmer's ear?

Answer: Known medically
as otitis external, swimmer's
ear is a painful condition
caused by inflammation of the
outer ear canal.
Competitive swimmers are
prone to otitis external for the
repetitive flow of water across
the ear canal washes away the
protective earwax, exposing
bacteria directly to the skin.
The wet and warm ear canal
is a great place for the bacteria
and fungus to multiply and
create an infection. However,
swimmer's ear is not a condi-
tion isolated only to swim-


mers. Anyone can develop the
condition from getting water
in the ear; such as when you

take a shower.
Itching in the ear canal is
usually the first sign of the
development of swimmer's ear.
Other signs include redness
and swelling, ear pain (espe-
cially when the ear is touched
or moved), a perception of
hearing loss or that the ear
canal is blocked in some way
because of swelling.
Drainage from the ear is a
late sign of more advanced
Because of the itching,
many will turn to Q-tips to
scratch the ear. This may only
makes things worse, removing
the protective ear wax, expos-
ing the now scratched skin
surface directly to more bacte-
ria and allowing an infection

to spread.
Avoidance of an infection in
the first place is the best reme-
dy, which means that the ear
canal needs to be dried with-
out actively rubbing or
scratching the skin surface.
It's common sense, but you
should make sure you get the
water out of your ears when
you get out of the water. You
should gently dry the canal
with your towel, but avoid
scratching or rubbing.
Another very effective
method to avoid an infection
during the season is with the
use of ear drops. For active
swimmers, over-the-counter
ear drops are available that
help dry out the ear through
accelerated evaporation, which

helps keep the development of
bacteria to a minimum.
One can also make their
own drops by using a solution
of half diluted vinegar and
half rubbing alcohol.
It is not recommended that
ear plugs be used to try to pre-
vent swimmer's ear because
they actually can increase the
potential for infection to
develop, again by scratching
the ear's inner surface and
removing the protective wax
Once the infection is diag-
nosed, antibiotic drops are
used to treat the infection and
steroid drops are used to
reduce the swelling.
Unlike an otitis media, the
typical ear infection one

might see in a child along
with the development of a
cold, oral antibiotics are not
used for swimmer's ear.

cuss issues regarding sports, med-

Petroni wows judges at Mr. Price

Pro surf contest in South Africa

Atlantic Beach's Karina
Petroni, a former junior cham-
pion surfer, turned in a great
performance during the first
day Mr. Price Pro champi-
onships earlier this month in
Durbin, South Africa.
Petroni had the second-
highest score of the day on
one of her runs, posting an
8.67 when she managed to
stroke into one of the few
open faced waves that came
through, according to pub-
lished reports.
"Performing a series of
impressive carves, Petroni
assumed the heat lead, taking
the eventual win over World
No. 8 Melanie Redman-Carr of
Australia, fellow American
Jenny Quam and South
Africa's Danielle le Roux,"
wrote a reporter at Global Surf
"Former Mr. Price Pro junior
champion Katrina Petroni
held the top spot for most of
her round of 48 heat, impress-
ing the judges with vertical re-
entries and a fins-free close
out maneuver to earn a 6.33
and 7.33 defeating Sheridan
Shields, of Australia, Stacey
Guy (Melkbosstrand) and
Japan's Kaori Mayaguchi,"

In "Scorpion Down"
(Perseus, $27.50), author Ed
Offley contends that the USS
Scorpion, once the fastest sub in the U.S.
fleet, was sunk by the Soviets in a retaliatory
strike 11 weeks after the Russian sub K-129
was lost at sea.
Offley,-a veteran military reporter, claims
his years of research into the Cold War mat-
ter brought him to only one conclusion: the
Scorpion was torpedoed by the Soviets and
the U.S. Navy covered it up.
"It would take countless hours of research
to find Navy documents that had escaped
the top-secret stamp, the shredder, or the
censor's marker pen to confirm that the mys-
tery of the Scorpion was instead a deadly

Based on a story in The
Weekly World News, "Bat Boy:
The Musical" is a musical
comedy/horror show about a
half- boy, half -bat creature
who is discovered in a cave
near Hope Falls; West Va.
For lack of a better solu-
tion, the local sheriff brings
Bat Boy to the home of the
town veterinarian, Dr. Parker,
where he is eventually
accepted as a member of the
family and taught to act like
a "normal" boy by the veteri-
narian's wife, Meredith, and
teenage daughter, Shelley.
Bat Boy is happy with his
new life, but when he naively
tries to fit in with the nar-
row-minded people of Hope
Falls, they turn on him, prod-
ded by the machinations of
Dr. Parker, who secretly
despises Bat Boy.
Shelley and Bat Boy, who
have fallen in love, run away
together from the ignorant
townsfolk and have a blissful
coupling in the woods, but
their happiness is shattered
when Meredith arrives and
reveals a secret. Soon the
entire town arrives and hears
the shocking story of Bat
Boy's unholy origin. .
"Bat Boy: The Musical" has
won several awards and rave

Orpheus Theater to

debut inaugural play

The Orpheus Theater
Group, a new independent
theater company dedicated
to bringing edgy and
provocative theater to
Jacksonville, is currently in
rehearsals for its first show.
The theater group will
open its first production,
"Closer," at 8 p.m. Friday,
July 27.
"Closer," written by Patrick
Marber, is the story of two
couples and their exploration
of sex, relationships, love,
and lies
The play won both the
Tony and the Drama Desk
Award for best play in 1999
and was converted into a
2004 film starring Jude Law
and Julia Roberts.
The film was nominated
for best screenplay and also
won Best Supporting Actor
Academy Awards for Clive
Owen and Natalie Portman.
The show's director warns
audiences that the subject
matter in "Closer" is
extremely mature.
"These characters talk
about passion and sex in the
most naked and brutal
forms," says director Jennie
"We won't be admitting
any audience members under
the age of 18 without an

adult present."
The Orpheus Theater
Group's presentation stars a
cast of actors known for their
work both on the First Coast
and outside of Jacksonville,
including A.J. Pratt, Steve
Anderson Jr., Jennifer
Gagnon, and Jaclyn Hofman.
Jarvis returns to directing
locally after six years in the
motion picture industry in
Los Angeles. The show will
run for three weekends
through Saturday, Aug. 11.
The group is converting a
yoga studio at the Body
Gallery into a theater space
for the performance.
"We were approached by
one of the established the-
ater companies in town
about using their space, but
it was essential to us that we
stage this first production in
a truly grassroots style,"
Jarvis said.
"We are committed to
being an independent the-
ater, and the space at the
Body Gallery is perfect for
what we want to accomplish.
It's raw and intimate and the
action will be right in the
audience's face. And I prom-
ise, it will be a memorable
experience unlike anything
you have seen in Jacksonville

Scorpion: Unsolved mystery of sea

Cont. from B-1
Sewell, a former Navy sub-
mariner, came to the same
conclusion: That the Soviets
were to blame for the
Scorpion's demise.
Reporters for The New York
Times concluded in "Blind
Man's Bluff" that an accidental
torpedo explosion, or "hot
run," inside the Scorpion
caused the sub to plunge to
crush depth.
"Silent Steel", author Stephen
Johnson counters those
assumptions by subscribing to
the theory that the Scorpion
was plagued by "maintenance
problems that dogged the U.S.
Navy's submarine service dur-
ing the 1960s."
Johnson's book also puts a
human face on the tragedy
which devastated family mem-
bers of the 99 crewmen.
Offley touches only briefly
on the human element in
sailors' letters.
In a dispatch to his mother,
torpedoman Robert Violetti
complains that the Scorpion is
stationed two miles offshore
because Italy did not want the
nuclear sub moored in Naples
"We are tied up to an
anchored U.S. warship (USS
Tallahatchie County) in the
shadow of Mt. Vesuvius," the
letter says.
"If you call that 'in port,'
OK, but to me 'in port' is being
tied up to a pier! ... The next
time I touch land will be at
Pier 22, Norfolk, Virginia, 44
The fast-attack sub was
scheduled to return to Norfolk
on Memorial Day, May 27,
When the Scorpion didn't
arrive as scheduled, the Navy
launched a massive open-
ocean search for the 251-foot-
long sub.
Four Mayport-based ships,
the destroyers Sumner, Forrest
Royal and Sarsfield, and guid-
ed-missile frigate USS William
H. Standley, took part in the
recovery effort, the book says.
The Scorpion was "presumed
lost" on June 5, 1968. Later
that year, the remains of the
sub were located 2 miles down
in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.
According to "Scorpion
Down," a sound recording of
the sub exploding was used as
a training tape in the early
1980s for sailors studying to
track the underwater move-
ments of Soviet subs using
sound surveillance systems.
"Are we seeing an American
submarine biting the bullet? a
sailor is quoted in the book as
"This is the death of the USS
Scorpion," a Navy instructor
replies. "Officially, the
Scorpion sank because of
mechanical failure."
Among Offley's sources in
"Scorpion Down" is retired
Vice Adm. Philip Beshany of
Atlantic Beach. Beshany, a
Fleet Landing resident, could

not be reached for comment.
Offley also makes a claim
that the John Walker spy ring
played a hand in the
Scorpion's fate.
Walker, a former Navy sub-
mariner, was a spy for the KGB
for 20 years, dating to the mid-
"By the late 1990s, I had
accumulated enough evidence
to establish a plausible scenario
that the Soviet Navy had the

motive, means, and opportuni-
ty by May 1968 to attack and
sink the Scorpion," Offley, now
with The Panama City News-
Herald, writes in "Scorpion

'Afghan Knights' for action lovers only

by Sarah Linwood
Though writers and play-
wrights often do their best to
spotlight what honor means,
it's actually indefinable. Does
it mean always taking the
expected action to forward
the goals of an organization?
Or, is its focus on following
one's internal concept of
ethics and morals despite an
organization's goals? Police
departments, the military
and numerous other groups
work assiduously to inculcate
this concept in their mem-
bers. Without honor, there
would be little to admire in
our nation's valiant armed
forces or the grudging
respect military men feel
about their enemies follow-
ing a hard-fought battle.
Honor is the basic concept
behind "Afghan Knights," a
story about regaining what's
been lost. Shepherded
through production by top-
ranked director Allan
Harmon ("Night Man,"
"Andromeda"), it clearly
depicts how honor and loyal-
ty may be two sides of the
same coin.
"Afghan Knights" opens -
unfortunately slowly by
drawing character profiles of
the main players. All were
one-time Navy SEALS, the
equivalent of the Army's
Special Forces or Britain's
famed SAS. These unbeliev-
ably tough men (in both real
life and film) fight terrorism
in Afghanistan, but when no
other choice was available,
this unit was forced to leave
a comrade behind. It's an
unwritten rule in most of the

world's armies that this shall
never happen and the for-
mer SEAL team depicted is
haunted by the memory that
it did. Yes, this plot outline
sounds like a recycled Chuck
Norris or Steven Seagal flick.
There is, however, a twist:
the "ghosts" of Genghis and
Kublai Khan. Unknown to
most is the fact neither
Rome, Sargon, Alexander the
Great or anyone else ruled an
ancient empire larger than
the two Mongol warriors,
and in "Afghan Knights,"
their souls still walk the
It's into this cauldron the
ex-SEAL team is thrown. For
the most part, leaving the
military wasn't good for any
of them: they're lost. Fate
dictates they get a second
chance to regain what's lost -
but don't think the screen-
play by Jesse Newhouse
("Look@Me," "Mem-o-re") and
Brandon K. Hogan ("Border
to Border," "RE(e)volution")
rates five stars. It doesn't,
and at times, the flick's
supernatural aspects seem
"Afghan Knights'" saving
grace is its shoot-'em aspect,
assuming you're a fan of such
films. Michael Madsen ("Kill
Bill 1&2"), Francesco Quinn
("Platoon"), Steve Bacic (TV's
"Andromeda"), Gary Stretch
("Alexander"), Chris Kramer
(TV's "The Collector"), Colin
Lawrence (TV's "Stargate SG-
1," "The L Word"), real-life
ex-SEAL Joey Baker and for-
mer North American
Cruiserweight Kickboxing
champion Vince Murdocca
round out the cast. All do an
adequate job with the ques-

tionable script.
If you're an action fan, this
R-rated, 92-minute film ($25
on DVD) is for you. Look
elsewhere for more cerebral

Create an outdoor living space

Dear Jane,
I really want to enjoy the
best of the weather this sum-
mer, but how can I make my
backyard as cozy as my family
Kim D.

Dear Kim,
,It doesn't matter how big
your backyard is, trom the 10-.
acre backyards of the Nlldd'e"st'
to the tiny balconies of Los
Angeles or New York, your out-
door space can be turned into
an extra "room" of your home.
And just in time for summer!
How much space, do I
First, determine the amount
of space you have available for
this project. It may be that it's
just a few square feet, or, you
might be lucky enough to
have acreage at your disposal!
Either way, determine what
activities you plan on doing
outside. Are you looking for a
personal retreat somewhere
to just "get away?" Consider
adding things that are special
and 'relaxing' to you. Whether
it's speakers outside so you can
enjoy your favorite tunes
while zoning out, or wind
chimes, bird feeders, or what-
ever will put you in a state of
Whatever your choices may
be, make certain to think them
through as best you can, as
they will help determine how
you move forward.
Can I Bring My Couch
The next step to creating
any outdoor space into a com-
fortable retreat is to make sure
that your furniture is, well,
comfortable! Are the cushions
to your outdoor chairs and
couch sagging or falling apart?
If so, purchase new ones. You'll
be happily surprised by the
recent influx of outdoor choic-
es that are available in most
home retail stores. It's way

'Be Jane'
beyond pati6 furniture!
The Stars Just Aren't Bright
An outdoor living room is
twice as enjoyable when you
can enjoy it at night! To help
make this that much more
inviting, you'll want to be sure
to choose the right kind of
lighting. It can not only help
set a mood, but greatly
enhance the beauty.
There are a number of do-it-
yourself lighting kits on the
market today that can be
installed in a matter of min-
utes. Try to find those lights
that don't have a need for
external power, such as those
charged on solar energy. You
might also consider using old
light fixtures such as a chande-
lier that you can hang directly-
from a tree! The older they are
the more character they can
add to your room.
Lastly, adding small white
lights to your trees or plants
can make the room "pop" 'with
Make Your Own Rain!
Duririg the blistering hot
days of summer, what could be
more refreshing than the
sounds of a bubbling spring?
Installing a nice water feature
is easy and will surely enhance
your state of mind. Take into

account your budget and style
choices, finding the perfect
fountain can be a relatively
fun experience. Most foun-
tains come with installation
instructions that are usually
very straightforward.
SPF 100
For long summer days... and
nights, you'll want to be out-
side; as much as possible. But,
the sun is still dangerous, and
unless you're covered in head
to toe sun-repelling clothes
and/or sunscreens, you'll want
to seek out some shade.
When considering the place-
ment of your outdoor living
room, take a look around and
see if you can't find a ''natural"
shade source. A canopy of trees
is an excellent and inviting
place for many outdoor living
Buy plants or an umbrella or
two to ensure you can spend
countless hours outside with-
out worrying about sunburns,
as well as providing a much-
needed retreat from the swel-
tering heat.
Remember, you'll want to
protect you AND your furnish-
ings, so try to find a shade
source that will ensure both
are protected.
A Last Word...
Ultimately, you want every-
one to enjoy the great out-
doors, so make it safe. If you
use candles or other flamma-
ble lighting, make certain to
take the proper precautions to
prevent candles from blowing
over or catching fire on flow-
ing materials.
Make certain any railings
whether on your deck or bal-
cony are strong enough to
withstand anyone leaning
against them. When arranging
your furnishings, consider
placing them in such a man-
ner that will discourage any-
one sitting atop the railing or
balcony walls.

Beaujolais is perfect summer sip

Those of you caught up in the
nouveau craze may think that
November is the time to think
of beaujolais. But for us it's in
the summer when the gamay
grape is the perfect wine to sip
on the deck or serve alongside
grilled chicken and other fare.
Most homeowners grill out-
doors a couple of times a week
- for Tom it is nearly every day
he's home. Grilling means
fewer pots and pans, better fla-
vors and giving everyone a
break from slaving in the
kitchen. A simple rub or mari-
nade can turn chicken or pork
into something special. The
trick, though, is to find a wine
that complements the smokey
or spicy flavors often associated
with fiery foods.
Beaujolais is a good foil
because it can be chilled and it
has the versatile flavors to go
with just about every grilled
food. It can quench the thirst
and appeal to red and white
wine enthusiasts.
Simple beaujolais desig-
nated as beaujolais villages -
comes from the southern region
of Beaujolais. But to the north is
where the special cru beaujolais
hails. Here, the wine is named
after designated villages, like
Moulin-a-Vent and Morgon.
You will see these villages
prominently displayed on the
Beaujolais is generally a sim-
ple, fruity wine that can be
chilled to ward off the summer
heat. Winemakers use a fermen-
tation technique called semi-
carbonic maceration when the
juice is actually fermented
inside the grape before being
crushed. Doing so reduces the
contact between juice and skin,

so there is little of the mouth-
puckering tannin.
Although beaujolais is not
meant to age, we were recently
surprised with the structure of
several beaujolais from the 2005
and 2006 vintages. We have
aged beaujolais before and with
positive results.
We highly recommend these
fruit-forward wines.
Georges Duboeuf Morgon
2006 ($12). Very aromatic berry
notes followed by bold black-
berry and cassis flavors with a
hint of kirsch. This is one big
enough to stand up to serious
food and has the potential to
age for 5 years. Great value,
great wine.
Potel-Aviron Cote de Brouilly
2005 ($16). Using grapes from
old vines, this gamay has ripe
fruit flavors redolent of black-
Potel-Aviron Moulin-a-Vent
2005 ($20). One of our favorite

of the tasting, this cru beaujo-
lais is delightful and vaguely
similar to a burgundy even
though it is made from an
entirely different grape variety.
Exquisite depth of black cherry
fruit with a mineral note and
lingering finish. Excellent struc-
Georges Duboeuf Regnie
2006 ($12). Regnie received its
appellation status only recently,
but quickly distinguished itself
as worthy of the title. Expect
.raspberry and peach notes in a
lighter style than the Morgon.
Georges Duboeuf Brouilly
2006 ($13). This is on the medi-
um-body side of beaujolais but
still with good structure. It is a
great quaffer or a wine to serve
chilled with pasta, vegetables
and fowl. Perfumy nose with
notes of plums and cherries.
Vincent Morgon' Charmes
2005 ($19). Bright cherry aro-
mas with ripe .cherriy and cur-
rant flavors. The tannins are
soft, but give the wine excep-
tional structure for a beaujolais.

Bridlewood Reserve Arabesque
Central Coast 2004 ($24).
Amazingly complex nose and
flavors of ripe plums, cherries
and blackberry with a hint of
cedar. A southern Rhone blend
of 63 percent grenache with the
balance of the blend made up of
mourvedre, cinsault, syrah and
viognier. This is a terrific drink-
able wine that would go very
well with beef and pork dishes.

Around the Home

Give your children a welcoming space you both will love

Whether you go with familiar
kid-friendly themes, such as
princess or sports star, to deco-
rate your child's room, the deci-
sion is usually up to your child.
But if your child is more open to
new ideas, try decorating your
child's room with an out-of-the-
box design that follows some of
the new trends. This will allow
you to make slight changes to
the room that will take your
child into the teen years -- or
allow you to move another
child into the room without a
complete design re-do. Best of
all, the new trends eliminate the
off the shelf look and makes the
room design look high-end.
A wonderful design trend
that's become very popular for
children's room is the living
area design. To encourage chil-
dren to spend time in their

-. I

rooms listening to music, play-
ing and studying, try arranging
the room like a living area. By
placing the long end of a bed
along a wall, you can create a
faux sofa that doubles as seating

and sleeping. The benefit of a
living-style bedroom is that kids
can entertain in their bed-
rooms. Many furniture manu-
facturers also make daybeds
specifically for this kind of
placement. The living area style
bedroom is also a different look
that appeals to many children
and makes them feel like their
room is much more grown-up.
Adult touch
And just because a bedroom is
designed for a child, it doesn't
mean the look has to be child-
ish. Kids rooms are now steer-
ing away from the kiddy look,
too. For fun, try antiques in the
room instead of kid-style furni-
ture. Or, place artwork on the
walls that would look appropri-
ate in the living room. Mature
themes that work well in the
rest of the home shouldn't be
kept out of a child's room. In

fact, a grown-up reproduction
painting in a child's room
would offer a touch of the unex-
pected. Other grown-up
embellishments include using
wall sconces, chandeliers, and
accessories. To give the adult
items some kid appeal, choose
accessories that have a bit more
whimsy. A garden figurine of a
frog with a crown would look
adorable in a child's room.
Color correction
When it comes to choosing
paint colors most children's
rooms tend to go with the tradi-
tional standbys of pastels and
primary colors. Break with tra-
dition and select colors that are
out of the ordinary. Neutrals
are a good starting point. These
colors look terrific in a kid's
room, give it a timeless appeal,
and are becoming very popular.
When a neutral color is used,
the child could, be anywhere
from two to fifteen. That means
if a child of two or ten could be
occupying the room, you won't

need to repaint as often. Plus,
neutrals are smart, chic looking
colors for both boys and girls.
Suite space
The suite concept is another
trend perfect for teens and for
kids who need to share a room.
Suites allow you to separate
activities, such as sleeping and
entertaining. And, if your child
is a teen, a suite, especially if it
includes a divider, is a wonder-
ful way to introduce that all-
important privacy. A suite can
be made with a curtain divider,
a room divider or with a free-
standing wall. Make sure any
standing screens or dividers are
adequately anchored to keep
them from falling. Separating
the fun, seating, and entertain-
ing area helps to give the room
a grown-up feel, too. A bed-
room is extra appealing when it
has an area for hanging out.
Kids love a great-looking
room. Spruce up your child's
room with a design that's as fun
and trendy as they are. They'll

love their new space and you,

There are a slew of websites
that offer wonderful photos and
ideas for kid's rooms. Here are
just a few of those online where
you can get ideas for your
child's bedroom makeover:

Bright pink accent colors keep this child's room fun and suitable for a younger girl, but different
accent colors could be easily switched to make this room suitable for a boy or older child. The
bedroom highlights a new trend in children's rooms of the living area style versus standard bed-
room and of using mature accessories like the landscape artwork.

Timely Tips

TOMATOES My tomatoes,
are terrific this year. My tip is,
use old tea bags and used coffee
grinds around the plants. Your
garden will have the best toma-
toes in town. Carol B.

FRESH SCENT To keep my
car smelling fresh, I put pot-
pourri in the ashtray. You could
also tuck some fabric softener
sheets under the seats.
Kimberly C.

DRESS IT UP I got tired of
looking at the same old, dreary
throw pillows. To give them a
new look, I stitched some lace
and ribbons onto them. You
could also use cording, braiding,

pompoms or tassels. My sister
glies silk flowers onto hers.
Carmela L.
my bedroom a dramatic, bold
look, I painted the wall behind
the bed a vibrant, dark. color. It
matched the rest of the room,
but gave it an entirely great face
lift! Beverly R.
* *
PACK IT UP I hate it when I
unwrap a package I got through
the mail and it's full of those
foam peanuts which spill out all
over the place. When I'm going
to be sending something deli-
cate to someone, I first put the
peanuts into plastic grocery
bags. I place them around the
.item and then seal the package.

This way, the recipient isn't
stuck with a mess. Hannah F.
* *
EASY I.D. When my chil-
dren have to go on field trips,
they bring their lunches with
them. To make it easier for them
to find their bag among all the
others, I draw colorful pictures
on them. For instance, if they're
going to a zoo, I might draw a
giraffe or lion on the bag. This
way, their lunch doesn't get lost
in a sea of plain, brown paper
bags. Julia M.
