Wingate field fix to cost players

Registration fees for adult
and youth sports leagues are
expected to increase to offset
the rising cost of maintenance
at Wingate Park in
Jacksonville Beach.
The City Council Monday
approved an $61,600 project
to replace the existing chain
link fencing with a wooden

fence along the park's football
field and install new padding
at each end zone that is more
wind resistant..
City officials last week
toured the renovated athletic
fields located on South
Penman Road, south of
Shetter Avenue, during a stop
on the annual budget tour.
Grounds Maintenance
Director Gary Meadors
explained that the foam safety

padding has been damaged by
winds and regular play and
repeatedly must be replaced.
"We have already spent
$21,000 about $3,000 per
year to replace the foam
padding," he said. "We will
probably have to replace a few
each year but not as often."
The new two-inch thick
pads will be equipped with an
attachment bar on the back
that secures it to the fence and

a plywood backing to reduce
A pole on the backside of
the new wooden fencing will
also support the padding.
Meadors said city officials
planned to revise the present
fee schedule to "help out with
maintenance and other
improvement projects."
"They are going to pay for it
one way or another," he said.
The current fee for adult

teams is $200 per season, he
said, which does not include
any additional cost for using
the field lights for practice.
"I think we all agree that the
teams are going to have to
start paying," Councilman Lee
Buck said.
A total of 45 adult teams
utilize the fields at Wingate

may fall victim

to budget cuts

The city of Atlantic Beach held its first budget work-
shop Tuesday and some of the options for cuts could
effect funding for special agencies and programs.
Among some of the programs that were proposed
for funding cuts include the Beaches Resource Center
(BRC), Dial-a-Ride and programs at Atlantic Beach
Elementary and Mayport Middle School.
Officials listened to requests from agencies, includ-
ing the city's Cultural Arts and Recreation Committee,
regarding requests for funding as well as options for
cuts to reduce budgets by 10 percent a request made
by the city manager as a result of the state's property
tax reform.
The state's recent property tax legislation is expect-
ed to produce a net loss of approximately $622,000 to
the city's revenue for the upcoming fiscal year, accord-
ing to Finance Director Nelson Van Liere.
Lori Melancon, chair of the Cultural Arts and
Recreation Committee, explained to officials that the
committee felt that some of the programs, such as
Dial-A-Ride and the BRC, did not belong in the cul-
tural arts and recreation budget.
"We think they're really, great programs, they just
don't belong in the cultural arts budget," she said.
"We're not being cold-hearted. I think it's definitely
something that the city needs to fund. It just should-
n't be coming out of our budget."
Melancon said that the committee, comprised of

renovation may be cut

Tentative plans to remodel
the public bathrooms at City
Hall in Atlantic Beach are also
on the chopping. block for
budget cuts, according to City
Manager Jim Hanson.
The project, which is in the
proposed budget for the
upcoming fiscal year, would
cost approximately $30,000,
but is one of several optional
cuts, according to Hanson.
Hanson said that the bath-
rooms have not been remod-
eled since City Hall was built
in the early 90s and there are
numerous problems with dirt,
rust and leaks.
The project would include
all new fixtures, counter tops,
tile and toilets, he said.
The goal of the project
would be to clean up the
bathrooms and make them
nicer for the public, he said.

Utility upgrades on the h

Beaches utility officials
have established a "simple,
straightforward"' capital
improvement plan beginning
in the upcoming fiscal year.
Don Ouchley, director of
utilities for Beaches Energy
Services, Friday detailed the
11 projects ranging from

$3.25 million plan.
"We've tried to-spread this
out over a rolling five-year
period," Ouchley told mem-
bers of the Jacksonville Beach
City Council and city depart-
ment heads during a tour of
the Beaches Energy offices at
1460 Shetter Avenue.
The group stopped at the
headquarters as part of the
annual budget tour which
breaks down the capital proj-
ects citywide.
Ouchely said the majority
of the projects will involve
installing underground lines
and converting wooden utili-
ty poles to concrete poles.
"We are doing all we can to
make the system storm hard-
ened and hurricane resistant,"
he said, noting that the most
recent outages were associated
with drivers hitting utility
poles and knocking out
"The latest outages that
hurt us the most are the
things we have little control
over drunk drivers," Ouchley
said. "The objective is to get

In South Jacksonville

Beach, Beaches Energy
Services will complete an
underground conversion proj-
ect east of 3rd Street between
37th Avenue South and Ponte
Vedra Boulevard.
Ouchley described the area
as "wind prone" and said the
$100,000 project will make
the system more efficient
with a modern voltage.
"It will all be standardized,"
he said. "It won't be operating
with treee'diffe'r~et obltages."
Upgrades planned west of
3rd Street in North
Jacksonville Beach will
involve a $200,000 voltage
conversion project ,on the
existing wooden poles.
Ouchley said the wood
poles will remain in that serv-
ice area because the lines are
not directly connected to the
A similar $250,000 project

tion project" is budgeted at
Wooden poles on the west
side of 9th Street South will

budgeted at $550,000.
In Neptune Beach, a renew-
al project at Neptune Marsh, a
40-lot subdivision, will
involve new cables, trans-

former and conduits at a cost
of $100,000.
"The existing system at
Neptune Marsh is direct
buried," Ouchley said. "It is
hard to replace when it fails.
It will essentially be a new
system for that subdivision."
The current system was
installed in 1977 and ,has
reached the end of its useful
life, Ouchley said, The system
usually lasts 20 to 25 years. :
A new system''will also be
installed at Leeward Landing,
a 129-lot subdivision in
Neptune Beach. The $150,000
program will replace the
direct buried system installed
in 1978 that Ouchley said has
also reached capacity.
Beaches Energy will replace
a direct buried system
installed in 1977 at
Constitution Cove, a 226-lot
subdivision in South
Jacksonville Beach, at a cost
of $500,000.
On the north end of Ponte
Vedra in St. Johns County,
Ouchley said a $150,000 proj-
ect will improve reliability
project by installing a loop
feed that allows downed lines
to be isolated and "picked up
at the other end."
Cypress Cove, a 227-lot sub-
division located within the
TPC at Sawgrass, will undergo
an underground conversion
project to replace a failing sys-
tem for $450,000.
The direct buried system
currently serving Hanover
Forest, a 36-lot development
located off Roscoe Boulevard,
will also be replaced for

Mitchell said.
The Nease team consisted of
approximately 10 students,
although only two were able to
attend the competition. Some
of the students built the robots
while others programed them,
Hendry said.
Hsu, who was the team cap-
tain, helped with the program-
ming and said that the biggest
challenge was trying to coordi-
nate all the different aspects of
what each robot can do.
"It's a really good experi-
ence," he said. "You growwith
building the robots. Every year
you encounter different prob-
lems. You improve steadily."


Manager George Forbes said
the capital improvement plan
is smaller than in past years
but stressed that it's not the
size that counts.
"We spend more time and
money than any other utility
program of our size to ensure
reliability," he said. "That's
the commitment we make to
our customers."
Beaches Energy Services has

tomers frm Paliii Valley' td

Budget: 'Every dime'

Cont. from A-1
nine members, scrutinized the
budget carefully this year to see
what areas could be trimmed.
"I think you approached this
very wisely," Mayor Don
Wolfson said to Melancon at
the meeting. "I think you
raised some questions about
some of the items that were in
the budget."
City Manager Jim Hanson
explained that these types of
programs are in the commit-
tee's budget because the com-
mittee was initially established
to review funding requests
from outside agencies, he said.
It was intended to operate as a
filter when the city received
requests for funding.
The committee's budget was
$75,000 last year and it was
proposed at $83,200 for the
upcoming fiscal year..
However, with the optional
cuts, the budget was reduced to
$62, 500 a 16 percent reduc-
The Dial-A-Ride and BRC
programs constitute a total of
$3,500 of the cultural arts and
recreation budget.
The funding that BRC,
which offers free services to
school-aged children and their
families at the Beaches,
receives from the Beaches cities
is used for some of the "extras"

that the program would not be
able to afford otherwise,
according to BRC Director
Linda Hemphill.
"It definitely benefits us. It
gives us the resources to better
assist the Beaches," she said.
Some of the programs that
BRC offers as a result of fund-
ing from the Beaches munici-
palities include tutoring,
A.D.D. testing, mentoring and
social enrichment activities,
according to Hemphill.
Other service programs, such
as Dial-A-Ride which provides
transportation to seniors and
disabled people at the Beaches
- rely more heavily on munici-
pal funding, according to
Bennie Furlong, president of
the Beaches Council on Aging.
Furlong said' that the pro-
gram's yearly budget is $70,000
and it receives $28,000 from
the city of Jacksonville. The
program relies on service
organizations, churches and
the Beaches municipalities for
the remaining funding. The
Beaches cities fund a total of
$4,500 of Dial-A-Ride's budget,
according to Furlong.
"Every dime affects us," she
said. "Everything adds up."
"They [seniors] would never
even get out of the house if it
weren't for the Dial-A-Ride pro-
gram," Furlong said.

be created in front of Atlantic
Beach Elementary. Seabreeze
Elementary has a parking prob-
lem, staff said.
"There're 'No Parking' signs
out in front of our school on
the street," said Seabreeze prin-
cipal Bill Dutter, "and they
were enforced last year. I want
to say one or two tickets were
given. I personally sent a letter
out, probably monitored that
for two weeks to tell people,
'Look, the signs have been
here, right here. Apparently
Jacksonville Beach police is
doing the job by enforcing it.
Just so you're aware of it.' It
worked out all right."
Tardiness also is a cause for
concern at most schools.
"There are now guidelines
that the district has put in
place for elementary students,
the number of tardies each stu-
dent has," said San Pablo
Elementary principal Linda
"We're monitoring that
process. We're going to be in
full force this year, hoping we
can get students here on time
and in classrooms."

The Leader's Opinion

Concerns on skate

park warranted

The new skate park for kids in Jacksonville Beach
certainly sounds like a good idea. However, Mayor
Fland Sharp and City Manager George Forbes are
taking a deliberate and cautious approach to plan-
ning for the addition to South Beach Park and we
believe their concerns need careful consideration.
Mayor Sharp has a problem with the number of
mature pine trees that will have to be cut down to
make room for the pre-fabricated concrete skate
board area. The Mayor's suggestions that considera-
tion should be given to another location or reduc-
ing the size of the skate board area so that more trees
could be saved deserve attention. Possibly new land-
scaping can include the planting of several large
trees. The alternative is a park that is not very invit-
ing to the families the park was designed for.
The City Manager is concerned, as the City
Manager should be, about costs of maintenance and
the city's liability is case someone gets hurt. Liability
insurance cost money. A parks department employ-
ee in attendance any time the skate area is open is
also costly but may be a condition of obtaining lia-
bility insurance at an affordable price.
All this at a time when city revenues are under
pressure from the state mandated reduction in the
property tax millage rate.
South Beach Park with features designed for kids
and their families is a great asset for our communi-
ty. But prudence about the costs, environmental
and financial, is what responsible city officials are
paid for. We think Grounds Maintenance Director
Gary Meadors put it well with his comment, "With
or without a skate park we've got a beautiful park. It
has turned out exceptionally well."

Later school means

more time to prepare

Due to later starting dates, parents have a longer
grace period this summer to get their kids ready for
the upcoming school year.
Schools open Monday, Aug. 20, in Duval County
and Friday, Aug. 24, in St. Johns County. That's two
weeks later in Duval and 20 days later in St. Johns.
It's time to get rolling on back-to-school supplies
and clothing.
Florida's tax-free week ends. at midnight Aug. 13,
meaning no taxes are collected on backpacks, school
uniforms and class supplies at the register.
More importantly, now is the time to prepare your
childrenrn for a great learning experience by findiniw
, Iut who their teachers are in advance of tihie fuist day

School orientation began last week at Fletcher
High School and kicks off Monday at Nease. Many

week as well.

Burning mortgages thing of past

There are apparently rafts
of anxious U.S. home-
owners who are mort-
gage payers and are worried
about it these days. An
Associated Press story recently
carried a headline reading,
"Foreclosures up 58 percent
since last year."
The subhead said, "Half a
million properties facing
action." As pointed out in a
sidebar. with the article, metro
Jacksonville isn't escaping the
troubles. Foreclosure activity
Shereabouts has also risen sig-
nificantly. It's surged 25 per-
cent during the 'first half of
2007 from the same time last
year and up 89 percent from
the last six months.
Losing one's home because
the mortgage payment can't
be made is plainly a devastat-
ing setback for any family. The
people who experience that
debacle probably were looking
forward to the day when
they'd be able to pay off the
obligation. However, although
people no doubt still burn
mortgages, now it's too often

Tip jars have a purpose in our society

A friend and I recently
discussed a confusing
S trend in local and
national businesses.
At many check-out counters
today, and not only in eating
or coffee establishments,
there are tip jars beside the
These are usually establish-
ments in which the customer
walks in, places an order, pays
for the product which is then
handed to them as they wait
beside' the register or at a
Our question was about the
purpose of the tip jars, which
are occurring more frequently.
Do they represent the
employee's whole salary, or
do they represent service
beyond the normal job
If a person is sitting on a
stool at a cash register, and
their only job is to inform me
of my total bill, accept my
payment and make correct
change, then I'm not sure:
how they are exceeding
expectations of their original
job description to earn a tip.
If, in the realm of econom-
ics, the tip jars represent a
vital part of a person's salary
because employers can't
afford to pay them what
they're worth, then I can
Maybe this employer feels
like because of the number of
employees required to keep.
the business running, a mini-
mum hourly wage and health
insurance is all he/ she can
afford, and the tip jar helps
keep the establishment afloat
to continue providing the
service to the community.
As I discussed this possibili-
ty with my friend she coun-
tered "Well if that's the way it
works these days, then why
aren't there tip jars on
teacher's desks, or for that
matter, why can't I put a tip
jar laundry room or
beside my stove?
She and I agreed that we
daily exceed the expectations
laid out to us when we took
on the job of motherhood.
Tipping was originally
assigned to service givers who
went above and beyond the
normal service, so a tip was
money that was added to the


person's normal salary.
The New Yorker estimates
that restaurant workers in the
U.S. make more than $25 bil-
Slion dollars annually, making
it seem an expected U.S. cus-
But tipping didn't take hold,
here until after the Civil War,
and even as it spread it met
with fervent public opposi-
tion from people who consid-
ered it a toxic vestige of Old
World patronage.
Anti-tipping associations
were formed:
newspapers-including The
New York Times regularly
denounced the custom.
STipping, the activists held,
fostered a master-servant rela-
tionship that was ill suited to
a nation in which people
were meant to be social
William R. Scott, in his
1916 piece "The Itching
Palm," described the tip as
the price that "one American
is willing to pay to induce
another American to acknowl-
edge inferiority."
Gunton's magazine labeled
the custom "offensively un-
American," arguing that
workers here should seek hon-
est wages "instead of fawning
for favors." The anti-tipping
campaigns were so effective
that six states actually banned
the practice.
The New Yorker thought that
opponents of tipping got
some important things right.
They saw that tipping was
an aberration in a freemarket
economy, and that tips had a
lot in common with gifts.
They also understood that
economics alone could not
explain why customers were

willing to tip.
What they missed was that
the very things they thought
made tipping un-American-
the waiters' need to cultivate
a relationship with the cus-
tomer, and their reliance on
that customer's largesse-
were exactly what would
eventually make tipping a
powerful social norm.
In an article in CNN Money;
the writer notes that countries
with the most extroverted
.and.neurotic citizens (the U.S.
leads in both categories)
tipped the largest amounts
and to the greatest number of
"Extroverts are outgoing,
dominating, social people --
and tipping is an incentive for
the server to atten-
tion. Neurotics are prone to
guilt and generalized anxiety -
- maybe they tip more
because of guilt over status
differences between them-
selves and the server," the
author noted.
I spoke with a.friend whose
daughter works at an estab-
lishment with a tip jar. She
said that her daughter makes
above the minimum hourly
wage, and the tips from the
jar were split between every ,
employee at the end of the
pay period.
Since, as the cashier, she
gives the last service before
the decision whether or not
to tip is made by the cus-
tomer, she feels the "kitty"
may be fed more if she is
dressed nicely, is pleasant,
and eager to help with
changes or questions.
Knowing this child, I'm am
not surprised that she has the
grace and maturity to realize
how her b behavior impacts
the welfare of others, but I
would hope she would act
this way whether or not she
was getting tipped for her
I'm reminded of the time
out of desperation I gave my
very young son a quarter to
pick his dirty clothes up.
In the following days, when
I asked him to do something,
he asked how much he was
going to be paid.
I saw the long years of an
outstretched palm panning
out before me, and nipped his
personal tip jar in the bud.


Big families

nota drain

on our planet

ple are calling on families
to have no more than two
children -- fewer human
beings will reduce our carbon
output, you see -- but they gof
it backwards. The world would
be better if more people expe-
rienced the family life I knew
as a kid.
I was raised the only boy
with five sisters, which was
both a blessing and a curse.
One day when I was 12, the
neighborhood bully was
roughing me up. I didAi't have
a brother to teach me to fight;
my sisters taught me. I looked
him dead in the eye and said,
"You are soooooo immature!
Get a life!"'
I suffered other indignities.
. My father (the Big Guy) was
always looking to stretch a
buck. He made me wear hand-
me-downs. It wasn't too bad
most of the year, but Easter
Sunday was humiliating. I had
a heck of a time outrunning
the neighborhood bully with
my pantyhose bunching up
on me and my bonnet flop-
ping in the wind.
The Big Guy had it worse
than I did. Until we added
onto the house in 1974, we
had only one full bath. The
Big Guy never could get in
there. He spent much of his
adult life sittingonb'the edge
of lig bed in his robe waiting' t
for one of my sisters to come
As soon as he'd hear the
bathroom door open, he'd
'race down the hall -- only to
hear it slam shut again, anoth-
er of my sisters locking herself
inside for 30 minutes or more.
The Purcell house was a
place of great drama over the
years. This is the natural
course when so many people
live together under one roof --
and when the males are heavi-
ly outnumbered by the
"For goodness sakes, Betty,"
the Big Guy frequently com-
plained to Mother after saying
something that caused one of
my sisters to erupt, "if I have
one more door slammed in
my face..."
But just as often, we'd sit
around the dinner table laugh-
ing our heads off, sharing sto-
ries about something one of
us had done. I was a frequent
target of the laughter. The
girls loved to tell stories about
their stinky, sweaty, mud-
caked brother.
It's amazing to me that I'm
45 already and that my sisters
are between 50 and 35. But
when we get together, we
laugh long and hard about the
thousands of experiences we
shared growing up.
We laugh because it's clear
now how much we were loved
and how all of us helped
shape each other -- our sense
of humor, our values, our
hopeful outlook. It's no won-
der that our positive experi-
ences are the reason we're all
doing well in life now.
One of the great tragedies of
our time is that so few people
are experiencing family life as
my sisters and I got to. Fewer
kids have brothers and sisters
to enjoy, and what good is
childhood if you can't annoy
your siblings?
What's worse is that fewer
adults are enjoying the bless-
ings my parents knew so well.
And I know too many people
in their 30s and 40s, particu-
larly in progressive metro
areas, who dream of marrying
and having a family, but have
no idea how to make it hap-
pen. I'm as guilty as anyone.
Being a member of such a
family taught me resourceful-
ness, for instance. When my
sisters caused me too much
grief, I was forced to devise a
clever strategy to make them
back off.
I threatened to use their

O JB man enjoys recent Hall of Fame experience



future is


with Jags

For one, it's a case of unreal-
ized potential; for the.
other, a failed experiment.
That's how it's shaping up for
Reggie Williams, the Jaguars'
first-round pick in 2004, and
Matt Jones the team's top selec-
tion a year later.
When Jags head coach Jack
Del Rio released the team's
depth chart Tuesday, Williams
was listed as the No. 5 receiver.
That's a pretty good indication
Williams may not be wearing
Teal and Black when the roster
is trimmed to 75 players on
Aug. 28, or pared to 53 active
players on Sept. 1.
It's a precipitous fall for
Williams, who was came out
of Washington with all kinds
of potential that simply hasn't
translated into results on the
NFL gridiron. The 6-foot-4
receiver may get a chance else-
where, but writing on the wall'
indicates his days in Jackson-
ville are numbered.
Without mentioning any
player by name, first-year
receivers coach Todd Monken
said, "You can't have guys just
running around, dropping
balls, not at the right-depth ..
I've never been around any
passing game that's worth a
damn if you can't be in the
right spot all the time and
catch it."
While Jones has also disap-
pointed, he's likely to remain
with the team in 2007 but
not as a wideout. He seems to
have found his niche as a slot
receiver in offensive coordina-
tor Dirk Koetter's scheme.
The Jags raised a few eye-
brows when they selected the
6-foot-6 Jones with the 21st
pick in 2005. A quarterback at
Arkansas, Jones ran a fast time-
at the,NFL Combine as was
suddenly cast as a prospect at
wide receiver.
After 36 catches for 432
yards in his rookie season and
41 more for 643 yards last year
along with far too many
dropped passes it became
obvious Jones would never
become a replacement for
Jimmy Smith, who retired
abruptly before training camp
last season.
Unfortunately for many fans,
the lasting images of Jones as a
wideout came last year at
home against the Houston
Texans when one pass glanced
off his hands, then helmet, for
a pick and another catch was
fumbled. The latter play was
especially galling since he
seemed to make a decent grab
only to have the football
ripped away by Texans comer-
back Demarcus Faggins.
With the prospect of Jones
being a deep threat seemingly
out of the question, the Jags
will try to create mismatches
for linebackers by lining him
up at slot receiver. Problem is,
the lanky Jones will have to
demonstrate a toughness for
going over the middle, and
that hasn't been evident dur-
ing his first two campaigns.
As an expression of their dis-
appointment with both
Williams and Jones, and to a
lesser extent veteran Ernest
Wilford, in the offseason
Jacksonville signed free agent
Dennis Northcutt to a five-
year, $17 million contract.
The Jaguars also drafted
speedster Mike Walker (third
round) in this year's draft, and
used their seventh-round pick
to tab John Broussard. Additio-
nally, Charles Sharon has seen
his share of reps with the' first-
team offense during camp.
It's clear there are plenty of
bodies in Jags camp to line up
at receiver. Whether some of
the new faces can revive the
team's passing game remains
to be seen.


Every baseball player dreams of that
call from the Hall of Fame. It means
you're in, one of the chosen few and
part of the big show.
For one Jacksonville Beach man, it
wasn't exactly a call from the hall of
fame, rather an e-mail that brought him
to Cooperstown for the recent induc-
tion ceremony of Cal Ripken, Jr. and
Tony Gwynn.
Frank Friers said he was asked to be a
volunteer at the July 29 event because of
his frequent trips to the Cooperstown
"Normally they need about 50 volun-
teers to help with the ceremony, but
they knew the crowds would be huge
this year they must have had 75,000
people there so they wanted 150 vol-
unteers," Friers said this week. "As a Hall
of Fame sustaining member, I was

Under the supervision of
head coach Bob Anderson and
assistant coach George Paugh,
the Senators hit the pool at
about 6 a.m. and go through a

the St. Louis Cardinals when the
Dodgers moved to Los Angeles. Duke
Snyder, Pee Wee Reese and Jackie

Friers said he knew he wasn't destined
for the big leagues when he noticed a
typographical error in a baseball pro-
gram while attending junior college.
S"They switched my weight with my
batting average," he recalled. "Not that
there was much difference between 157
and 175, but when I saw it in print I
knew I wouldn't be going much farther
in baseball."
After teaching in the midwest for a
few years, Friers said he seized an oppor-
tunity in Duval County in 1976 and has
been here ever since.
As for this year's inductees, Friers said
he was excited to take part in the event
because he considers Gwynn and
Ripken "two fellas that did things the
right way."

Is Bonds' HR ball really worth that much?

he moment we've been
waiting for is finally over.

Not Jaguars training camp,
but this whole Barry Bonds
home run thing that has held
America hostage seemingly
since Opening Day.
Finally, East Coasters can get
some sleep (San Francisco
games usually start at 10:15
p.m. over here). For the first
time in a while, columnists and
other members of the sports
media can finally find some-
thing else to exaggerate on.
I'll be the first to admit I
wanted to see Bonds break the
record. I like those historic
moments. But watching the
game, half-asleep most of the
time, I noticed something that
might have been more impor-
tant than the home run, more
important than life itself to a
good few thousand people in
those stands.
That ball.
Not sure if anyone else saw
the replay (aside for the 100-or-
so shown of just Bonds raising
his arms in triumph) of the area
in the stands where the ball
landed, but it was more amaz-



ing than the home run itself.

Can orthopedic implants set off airport security?

questionn: Dr. Smith, I
broke my arm skate-
boarding, and now
have tes and screws inside.
How likely am I to set off the
metal detector at the airport,
and what should I do about

Answer: As you very well
may know, getting through
security now is somewhat of a
hassle, having to remove your
shoes, your belt, and your
watch and jewelry. With this
increased security, orthopedic
implants are also now more
likely to be detected.
An April 2007 report in the
Journal of Bone and Joint
Surgery noted that orthopedic
implants set off security detec-
tors over 50 percent of the
Rods, wires, plates and


screws were not commonly
detected, but total hip and
knee replacements set off the
alarms in over 80 percent of
the screenings. It was also
noted that cobalt-chrome and
titanium implants were more

likely to set off alarms than
were stainless steel implants
and lower extremity implants
were noted more often than
upper extremity devices.
A comparative study done
prior to the September 11,
2001 attacks noted a detection
rate of only 10 percent.
I spoke with Michelle
Branham with the Public
Service Office of the
Jacksonville Airport Authority.
She indicated that there are
few problems that have arisen
from passengers with orthope-
dic devices.
It is possible that your metal
implant will set off the securi-
ty device that you initially
walk through, but a screener
will simply wand the area that
you describe, and pat you
down just to make sure that
you don't have something
hidden just underneath your

Branham reported that this
should take only a matter of
minutes, and that you should-
n't have any problems.
It is pretty rare that I have
had someone call me needing
something from their airline
stating that they have an
orthopedic implant. Again,
most passengers have little to
no difficulty with security.
The Transportation and
Safety Administration's Web
site suggests that passengers
with orthopedic implants
advise the security officer on
site of this fact and where the
implant is located, which
should allow for the person to
receive a private screening
instead of walking through
the detector, and then failing
the initial screening.
The only incident of note

Carnes, Beckmann represent area

in ESA East Coast championships

Florida state surfing champi-
ons Jessie Carnes and Kayla
Beckmann will be representing
North Florida in the Eastern
Surfing Association East Coast
Championships September 23-
30 in Cape Hatteras, North
Beckmann, 18, won the long-
board division (ages 29 and
under) of the ESA regional
championships and placed fifth
in the women's shortboard
(ages 18-29). Carnes, who
recently turned 18, won the
shortboard junior women divi-
sion (ages 15-17) at regionals in
New Smyrna Beach April 21-23.
"I am determined this year,"
said Carnes, who placed third at
ECSC the past two years. "There
are a bunch of girls in my divi-
sion from Puerto Rico who will
be my main competition. But
I've been training a lot and surf-
ing every day I can. I want it so
Beckmann and Cames have
been best friends since middle
school when they first started
surfing. And it seems like yester-
day they were waking each
other up to surf before school at
the 19th Street beach access in
Atlantic Beach.
"Jessie would throw a rock at
my window in the morning to
wake me up to go surf and we'd
stay out in the water until the
bus came to take us to school,"
said Beckmann, 18, who attend-
ed Fletcher Middle and graduat-
ed from Fletcher High in May
"It was great because middle
school didn't start until 9:15 so
we'd get a good couple of hours
surfing and go to school with
saltwater still in our hair. But we
didn't care. All that time in the
water surfing together and with
all our friends made us better

water at their home break.
Petroni placed second in the US
Open of Surfing in Huntington
Beach, CA July 29 improving
her ranking to 11th overall in
the women's World Qualifying
Series [WQS] of surfing and
another step closer to making it
on the pro surfing World
Championship Tour [WCT].
"I'd have to be a lot farther
along in my surfing career at my
age to consider really making it
on the pro circuit and I've come
to terms with that," Beckmann

Beckmann is majoring in
communications at the
University of North Florida and
said she plans to
continue surfing
in the Eastern

who is representing the North

in the ECSC, her best finish was
another third at the Ron Jon
pro-am in Cocoa Beach, FL in
the spring of 2006.
"I want to try to be a pro
surfer so I'm going to give it a
shot," Games said.
As well as being best friends,
Cames and Beckmann are also
competitors in longboard and
have competed against each
*other in shortboard until the
2006 season when Beckmann
moved up to the women's divi-
sion. Starting Sunday with the
first 2007 ESA contest of the sea-
son at The Poles in Mayport,
Beckman and Cames will be
competing in shortboard again
as Carnes moves up to the
women's .division for the
upcoming season.
"I'm goofy foot and she's a
regular, 'so we work together,
split peaks, and cheer for each
other," Beckmann said.

watch each other or we'll psych
each other out. If a wave is

But for the upcoming ECSC
in Hatteras, the divisions are
based on the 2006 season.
Many pro surfers, like Petroni,
competed in the ECSC before
turning to professional careers.
"Both Jessie and Kayla are
title contenders for shortboard
and longboard divisions," said
Mitch Kaufmann, director of
the North Florida district of the
"We have some of the best
female surfers in the country
right here."
At ECSC, six competitors surf
in 15-minute heat where they
can catch up to 12 waves. They
are scored on the top two

"We came out of the water
and nobody could say who won

(Solomon Levine) and Scott
(Zach Kanner) into Curt's life.
Jesse is sensitive and cre-
ative, a fan of old movies who
is often teased by his class-
mates. Scott, by contrast, is a
gifted athlete whose life is
shadowed by the physical
abuse that he and his mother
suffer at the hands of his
Curt, egged on by Mike,
reaches out to both boys as a
mentor and bonds are formed
that lead all four men in direc-
tions they never would have
thought possible.
The play is dramatic and
warm, and peppered with
zippy one-liners. Sheppard has
previously co-authored five
published one-acts which have
been produced more than
eighty times in five countries.
"Benchwarmers" is his first
solo effort and his first full-
length play.
Additional performances are
Aug. 17 and 18. For reserva-

other awards, including best ensemble cast. Visit for more on the 2007 Pelican Awards.

UF's butterfly rainforest an educational kids exhibit

Brilliant blue morpho
flutters through the
rainforest before land-
ing on my shoulder.
"Butterfly," says my 2-year-
old daughter, Grace, pointing
as the butterfly slowly opens
and closes its wings while
relaxing on my T-shirt sleeve.
We didn't have to travel to
the rainforests of South and
Central America where the
neotropical butterfly makes
its home.
We visited the Butterfly
Rainforest in Gainesville, a


new addition to the Florida
Museum of Natural History.
The Butterfly Rainforest is a
four-story, outdoor screened
enclosure with waterfalls, a
walking trail, lush subtropical
and tropical plants and hun-
dreds of live butterflies.
You don't feel like you,re in
a screened enclosure when
you're winding through the
bridged path over koi fish
swimming in ponds while
hundreds of butterflies of all
variations and colors thrive in
their naturalistic habitat of

lush plants and waterfalls.
"I know why they like flow-
ers," said my'son, Jake, 6,
observing a swallowtail on a
hibiscus. "It looks like they
have a straw for a nose. I bet
that's how they drink."
He was right. Jake partici-
pated in a study administered
by graduate students at the
University of Florida.
He answered five questions
related to butterflies before

The movie ,,Night at the

sparked Jake,s interest in visit-
ing a museum of natural his-
tory. So when a friend told us
about the museum, located on
the campus of the University
of Florida, we decided to
check it out online first. I dis-
covered that in addition to
the Museum of Natural
History is the new Butterfly

Rainforest which opened last
year. It looked like it would be
worth the 1 hour, 40 minute
drive and if nothing else it
would be a day trip out of the
heat and a chance to spend
some time with my mom and
the kids on a random
Thursday afternoon.
This trip by far exceeded
our expectations.
The first dinosaur skeletons
you notice are the American
Mastodon and Colombian
Mammoth, both discovered in
a North Florida river, in the
museum lobby.
Beyond the giant wooly
mammoth skeletons we
entered the prehistoric sharks
exhibit through the jaws of a
60-foot-long megalodon
sculpture. The megalodon, the
largest shark that ever lived,
and the exhibit on sharks is
on display through Jan. 6,

The kids also loved walking
.through a life-size limestone
cave and the Native America
trading scene in the river
gallery. They played in the
learning classroom with puz-
zles, games, art supplies and
all sorts of fun activities.
Everything was beautifullvy

Rod Kimble (Andy Samberg) is committed to fulfilling his late father's legacy as Evil Knievel's test-rider in,the comedy "Hot
Rod." The PG-13 film also stars Sissy Spacek and lan McShane.

'Popeye' DVD: Can of animation history

Grown-up kids at heart,
do yourself a favor.

Take the money you'd have
blown to go see the latest
dumb family comedy, tack
on a few extra bucks, and
buy Warner Bros., 4-DVD.set
"Popeye the Sailor, Vol. 1
Quality animation, which
was dying a slow, painful
death on Saturday mornings,
is finally getting the atten-
tion it deserves. Hats off,
especially, to the good folks
at Warners, who did lavish
tributes to Bugs Bunny and
Co. and have now done the
same for the wizened sailor
Thanks to decades of spin-
and rip-offs, latter-day TV
fans thought they knew the
drill. Reedy heroine Olive
Oyl snubs gruff Popeye.
Bullying Bluto manhandles
Olive, who screams for help.
Popeye downs some conve-
niently placed spinach and
knocks Bluto to'the four
But Popeye was far from
formulaic in his early days.
In 1933, after being the
main draw of E.C. Segar's
comic strip "Thimble

Theatre," Popeye was turned
into a Paramount "movie
star" by a pair of animating
New York siblings, Max and
David Fleischer.
The Fleischers never saw a
gag they didn't like.
Inanimate objects come to
life just long enough to suit
plot purposes.
When a guy needs to cross
a huge chasm, he just hooks
a rope to the other end and"
pulls the offending land
within walking distance.
Popeye's fists send so many
bad guys skyward, you won-
der why he even has to both-
er with spinach.
Comedy fans will be
astounded at the attention
given to wringing every pos-

sible gag from a situation.
"The Simpsons Movie's"
ancestry can be handily
traced back to the Popeye.
The soundtracks are terrif-
ic, as.the Fleischers had full
access to Paramount's music
library. Bing Croiby's hit
"Did You-Ever See a Dream
Walking?" provides the motif
tor "A Dream Walking"
(1931), in which Olive Oyl
sleepwalks far above New
York City.
And young cartoon watch-
ers, trained to settle for limit-
ed animation, will be
astounded at the cartoons,.
rich back- and foregrounds,
and the characters who never
just walk across the screen -
Sthey scuttle crazil )- all over
the frame.
If six hours of these classic
cartoons isn't enough, the
DVDs have another hour of
minutely detailed making-of
profiles, with comments
from historian Jerry Beck,
"Lion King" artist Eric
Goldberg, and other cartoon
A couple of caveats: Save
for two Technicolor "spe-
cials," all of the set's car-
toons are in black-and-white

Bailey: DeNiro squanders reputation

Cont. from B-1
adolescent son could crawl
over the thing and not break
a sweat.
Even in Fairy-Tale Land,
homeland security is prob-
lematic these days.
Oh, and it's not enough
just for some lovesick cow to
be after Yvaine. For reasons
unclear, she's also being pur-
sued by a royal heir, whose

kingly father is played by
Peter O'Toole with the
finesse of the dying frog in
"Shrek 3." And Yvaine's pul-
sating heart is needed to
restore youth to a trio of
witches, led by a hammy
actress who tries to convince
us that she was once
Michelle Pfeiffer.

Keep cool with a pool

Dear Jane,
My kids are bugging me for
a pool, but I'm not sure what's
involved with owning one.
Any advice?
Sheila W.

Dear Sheila,
You're smart for wanting to
know what's involved before
jumping in. Here are some
things to consider.

Are you ready to take the
A backyard swimming pool
can be a homeowner's greatest
luxury. Whether you want a
place to entertain friends or
family, a gathering spot for
your kids to enjoy, a private
place where you can swim
anytime of the day or night, or
you just want to beautify your
backyard, consider installing a
pool either now or sometime
in the near future.
In-ground pools are increas-
ingly popular. The U.S.
National Spa and Pool
Institute, a trade organization
'in Virginia, reports that pool
construction in the United
States has increased annually
by 5 to 6 percent since 1998.
The cost to install a pool
averages about $20,000 at the
low end and can easily top
$50,000 depending on shape
and pool materials. Other costs
can quickly drive the total
price above $80,000, ahd
include such amenities as
landscaping, surrounding
deck, tile work and accessories,
and filters, heaters, lighting
and pumps.
Because the investment can
be so significant, explore your
financing options ahead of
time. Some builders offer cred-
it terms, but you should cer-
tainly explore a range of choic-
es including tapping a home
equity line of credit. Interest
on such loans may be tax
deductible. Further, you may
be able to claim your pool as a

'Be Jane'
tax deduction if a doctor rec-
ommends swimming or anoth-
er form of water therapy for a
medical condition such as
Look Around
If you are seriously consider-
ing putting a pool in your
backyard, your very first step
should be to look at a half
dozen other backyard pool
sites in your town or city. Talk
to friends (or friends of
friends) who have gone
through the experience of
installing a pool. Local people
are the best source for contrac-
tor referrals, ideas on what
works and doesn't work, and
for real information about
what things actually cost.
Once you find a contractor
that you like, get references
and visit at least three pools
that he has built.

Things to Consider
In-ground pools can be built
with different liners such as
vinyl, fiberglass and concrete.
Vinyl is the most commonly
used material and is almost
always the choice for homes in
colder climates. Fiberglass lin-
ers composed of reinforced
plastic look like giant bath-
tubs. Concrete is popular for
custom-shaped pools since it is
adaptable to any size or shape.'
Concrete and fiberglass defi-
nitely have longer life spans

than vinyl liners.
Weather conditions and sea-
sonal temperatures can affect
when your pool can be
installed and how long it
might take to complete. But in
any season, be prepared for a
huge mess in your backyard
and a lot of workmen on your
"Earth disturbance can be
surprising and scary, as a
major construction job will
look like a war zone before it is
finished," says Tom Griffiths,
author of The Swimming Pool
(Simon & Schuster). Remember
that installing a pool is major
construction and requires per-
mits and inspections by city

All swimming pools require
a certain amount of mainte-
nance to keep the water clean
and chemically balanced.
Standard equipment on pools
now includes automatic clean-
ers and chlorinators; maintain-
ing it yourself is an option,
though it will likely require
learning a bit of chemistry and
storing some toxic chemicals
at your home. Many home-
owners opt for a pool service
to keep their pools sparkling
clean; add this to the cost of '
heating your pool as you
budget what the true cost of
ownership is likely to be.

Know your Warranties
Make sure that your warran-
ty covers not only the pool but
also all ancillary systems like
filtration, plumbing, heating
and lighting.

Yangarra Estate gains respect

T fe last time we met with
Peter Frazier, winemaker
for Yangarra Estate, was
during the dark days following
the Sept. 11 attacks at New
York's World Trade Center.
What was then Yangarra Park
had decided to introduce its
Australian brand to America in
Washington State on Sept. 11.
The event was canceled and
Peter made his way to
Washington, D.C., several
weeks later when we finally
tasted his wine.
All of the Yangarra Park
grapes were purchased and
although technically correct,
the wine was uninspiring.
Flash forward almost six years
and we are seated with the still
youthful looking Peter Frazier,
tasting and talking about the
now, estate-bottled Yangarra
Estate Vineyard, which became
part of the Kendall-Jackson
family of wines.
Yangarra Estate is now a very
respected producer of mostly
Rhone varietal wines all grown
on about 240 acres in the
Mclaren Vale appellation in
Australia. Grenache, syrah and
mourvedre along with a little
bit of chardonnay grapes are
grown in ancient sandy soil on
mostly nongrafted rootstock.
The estate includes 40 acres of
what was described to us as
"bush-vine grenache" that
resembles head-pruned vines.
These vineyards were planted
in 1946.
Peter describes Yangarra's
niche as estate-grown Rhone
varietals produced in a "rustic

'The Wine Guys'

Interestingly, Peter told us
that neither he nor his vine-
yard manager check sugar lev-
els most winemakers and viti-
culturalists use refractometers
during the growing season.
Instead, Peter judges ripeness
by tasting and visually exam-
ing only the grapes and seeds,
then picks when he feels that
the sugars, acidity and tannins
suit his experienced-based
maturity parameters.
You can't argue with the
results of his efforts. The
Yangarra Estate Rose.
McClaren Vale 2006 ($15)
exhibits an appealing strawber-
ry and cherry nose, and fla-
vors. 60 percent shiraz and 40
percent grenache, this wine
really resembles a classic Rhone
Valley rose, but with a little
more fruit, and is perfect with
summer grilled fare.
The Yangarra Estate Old
Vine Grenache McClaren Vale

2004 ($28) is a stone-cold win-
ner for grenache lovers.
Sourced from the 60-year-old
"Old Bush Vines," this wine
shows huge intense blackberry
and black raspberry notes,
framed in a bit of oak. For all
its ripeness, the wine has
ample acidity and soft tannins
for drinking now. It can be
enjoyed all by itself. Wow!
The Yangarra Estate Shiraz
McClarei Vale 2005 ($28) is a
very solid wine that perfectly
represents the grape varietal.
Primarily berry, and plum fla-
vors and nose again with
appropriate acidity for a fruit-
forward wine that is well bal-
anced. It should be wonderful
with stews or game dishes.
The Yangarra Estate
Cadenzia GSM McClaren Vale
2005 ($28) is a blend of 47 per-
cent grenache, 41 percent shi-
raz and 12 percent mourvedre.
Very expressive and smooth
with berry flavors and nose, in
a sweet syrupy fruity melange.
A wonderful wine that is domi-
nated by the grenache with the
other varietals contributing
complexity and interest. It
would be great with grilled

Fina Allende Rioja 2004
($19). We loved the opulent
fruit flavors in this well struc-
ture rioja with soft tannins and
herb and spice notes adding to
the black cherry flavors.
Allende makes two single vine-
yard wines that warrant your
attention too.

Around the

Easy, breezy screens for today's homes


There's a quintessential
sound to summer. To
someone under 40, it
might be a buzzing cicada.
But to someone over forty,
that sound is the "THWAP!"
of a screen door. It takes you
back to the days of being
yelled at to stop slamming
that screen door. A screen
door speaks of a small town
store where the wide door
handles advertised the local
bread with some cute little girl'
biting a piece smeared with
butter or jelly. Yes, screening-
takes you back, but screening
has definitely moved forward.

Screening choices
Today's screens come in a
variety of options to choose
from. Whether you want to
screen in a porch or keep mos-
quitoes from biting, today's
screens offer a variety of
choices to fill most homeown-
er's needs. Screening used to
stop glare and heat from the
summer sun is sold as solar
screening and is popular in
sunny states. Solar screening
is best used in areas where the
sunlight it most intense, such
as the west side of a house.
Solar screening will prevent

sunlight damage to fabrics,
upholstery and wood furni-
ture in addition to keeping
the house cooler. Screening
used to be made mostly of
galvanized steel, but screening
can now be found in a variety
of materials ranging from
fiberglass to bronze and alu-
minum. Bronze screening,
most often used on historical
homes, has become more pop-
ular for the aged patina it
acquires from exposure and

Screening styles
There are three basic styles
of screening. The first is
mounted and includes screen
doors, rooms or porches. The
second is retractable screen-
ing. Retractable screens can
be made for windows, doors
and garage doors and can
sometimes cost as much or
more than mounted screen-
ing. But the versatility of
being able to have screening
or not have it is what makes
retractable screens so appeal-
ing. Retractable door screens
run around $150 or more.
The last type of screening is
hanging. Hanging, or drop,
screens are usually applied
with hook and loop tape and
can be removed easily when
not in use, which makes them
convenient on nice weather
days. Another bonus is they
can be purchased for doors
and garages very inexpensive-
ly. Drop screens for doors run
around $15 and garage door
screens can be had for about
$50, sometimes less.

Screen applications
Determining the type of
screening to use on your
home will depend on the
application. If you have a
screen that's exposed to salt
air, then fiberglass screening

Screening is a wonderful way to keep bugs out and cool breezes in. Today, there are many screening options for homeowners that
are rust-proof, pet-proof and fit with almost any style of house.

will hold up better than alu-
minum or other metal. If
screening is used around pets,
one brand made specifically
for pets, called PetScreen, is
made of a specially-coated
material that resists scratching
and tearing. Sometimes the
need for screening is for cross-
ventilation but'adding a
screen door just isn't practical.
And, of course, there's the aes-
thetic consideration. Many of

today's homes don't look right
with screen doors. In either
case, retractable or drop
screening is the answer. These
screens are good options
because they can be used only
when desired versus being a
permanent fixture on a house
and they don't interfere with
a home's style. If pests are
your goal for screening, then
be sure to look for a mesh
count of at least 20 by 20.

With soaring air condition-
ing bills, cooling cross ventila-
tion is helpful and makes
good financial sense. But
without screening, the appeal
of an open, airy house or
lower utility bills disappears.
Used correctly, the right '
screening will protect against
sun or bugs, can give your air
conditioning a rest and give
your house a nice airing out.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A friend is try-
ing to get you to share a confidence you
promised to keep. Don't give in. This isn't
your news to share.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Things aren't
what they seem in a certain relationship. It
may be time to do some re-evaluating. Career-
wise, though, it's smooth sailing.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might as
well resign yourself to it. This week won't be
that productive at work. Fortunately, there's
nothing too pressing going on.
CANCER (June 21. to July 22) You're upset
when someone you've looked up to disap-
points you. This isn't such a bad thing. You
needed to be reminded that this person is
only human.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Be open to new
opportunities which come your way this
week. One of these leads to new and exciting
things for your career. Later in the week, you
have romance on your mind.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You're
particularly alert and sharp this week. Use this
brain power to its best advantage. At home,
don't allow a loved one to bring your mood
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You
feel a bit under the gun this week where work
is concerned. However, if you take one task at
a time, you'll find it easier to deal with. This

weekend, quiet pursuits are best.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
.Financial opportunities are possible this week.
However, these come with added responsibil-
ities. Be sure you want to take these on before
seeing those dollar signs.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
21)-It's a good week to ask questions of big-
wigs. While some answers are surprising,
they're ultimately enlightening. In fact, some
changes could be the happy result.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
You feel on solid ground this week concern-
ing your career. Don't let a co-worker mess
that up. This person is merely jealous of your
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
You're mentally sharp this week, even more so
than usual. You may even come up with an
innovative approach to a.problem at work.
Later in the week, a unique opportunity
comes your way.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A setback
early in the week shouldn't throw you off
completely. It will, though, if you allow it.
This weekend, find an intellectually stimulat-
ing activity to enjoy.

A green flash is sometimes seen just as the sun sets or rises.
This occurs because green light is bent most strongly by the
atmosphere. So the green is seen before other colors at sunrise,
and after the other colors have vanished at sunset.
