Ding, ding, ding... Trolley coming to Beaches


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A weekend trolley service
could be up and running at the
Beaches by April, 2008.
Jacksonville City
Councilman Art Graham, who
represents the Beaches district,
Wednesday proposed the two-
year trial program to operate
along A1A during the warmer
months from April through
Labor Day.
"We are interested to see how
well it works and if there is a


need for it," Graham said
Wednesday.
The trolleys will travel from 6
p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, 10 a.m.
to 2 a.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.
to 7 p.m. Sunday from Atlantic
Boulevard to J. Turner Butler
Boulevard.
Graham said the trolley serv-
ice will be funded by private
dollars and title sponsorship is
available if a single corporate
entity antes up the $500,000
projected for operational costs.
"I need to find out what I
need to sell and go out and sell


it," he said. "That is where we
are now."
Graham offered details of the
program at a transportation
meeting held Wednesday in
Jacksonville Beach City Hall to
discuss extending bus service
into northern St. Johns County.
JTA will provide four trolleys for
use in the Beaches area.
"It gets people used to the
idea of public transportation,"
Graham said. "People that will
ride a trolley may not ride a city
bus."
Mike Miller, director of exter-


nal affairs at JTA, said he is
working with Jacksonville
Beach City Manager George
Forbes to find space in the city
yard to park the trolleys
overnight to lessen the drive
time of the operators.
It would also serve the fuel-
ing needs because the trolleys
require diesel to run which is
available at the city yard.
"It would be more efficient to
station and fill them up here,"
Miller said. "It would eliminate
some of the Wear and tear on
the vehicles."

The mural on the side of a Neptune Beach moving business has the city challenging its legality.


City says mural violates sign law

r'. .,7 IM


by ALEXANDRA KUNIMERNES
STAFF WRITER
The difference between what is consid-
ered art and advertisement can be as
opposite as day and night.
A local moving company, Day or Night
Moves, Inc. has a mural of a sun and
moon displayed on their building that
the owners consider art, but the city of
Neptune Beach considers it' a sign,
according to officials.
"It was a gift to my wife," said owner
Joe Quest, explaining the sun and moon
representation painted on the west side
of the Atlantic Boulevard business.
"Shari has always been the sun in my
life," Quest said of the painting.
Quest said he considers the sign, which
has been on display for approximately
two weeks, an "outdoor art mural:"
However, he received a notice from the
city explaining that it is considered a
sign and that because he did not have a
permitfor it, the company was in viola-
tion of the city's code.
"That just kind of hurt our feelings,
he said.
He also explained that it is not the
same as the company's logo which has
a copyright and shows an owl and stars.
The city's code defines a sign as "any


Sea & Sky plans
on JB's agenda
FROM STAFF
Jacksonville Beach officials
will consider an interlocal
agreement with the city of
Jacksonville Beach, US Naval
Station and'the three Beaches
cities at 7 p.m. Monday to
produce to the 2007 Sea &
Sky Spectacular.
The City Council will meet
in Council Chambers at 11
3rd Street North in
Jacksonville Beach.
The event will be held Nov.
3 and 4 in Jacksonville Beach.
The city hosted the show
highlighted by a performance
by the Navy's Blue Angels
precision air team in 2001,
2003 and 2005.
Jacksonville Beach con-
tributes $10,000 in sponsor-
ship money to fund the
event.
According to the agree-
ment, Neptune Beach will
contribute $3,500 and
Atlantic Beach will provide Getting Rea

City Manager Jim Jarboe said he' ould
not comment because the case is still
open.
However, Quest filed for a sign permit
Wednesday, according to city officials.
He received a letter from Jarboe
Thursday explaining that although he
filed for a sign permit, the city will not
consider that an admission that the
mural is a sign.
The case'will be heard before the code
enforcement board in October, according
to Jarboe.
If the permit is denied, the company
can either apply for a variance or appeal
to a civil court, according to Jarboe's let-
ter to Quest.
The company has started a petition -
which has approximately 100 signatures
- to rally support for the mural, which
was painted by a Jacksonville Beach artist
at his request.
In an email, Quest's wife Shari said that
the mural, which was a gift from her
husband, was added to a "very plain
blank gray wall in an effort to make the
building more pleasing to the eye.
"Most if not all of our neighbors agree.
Many have said it has brought a smile to
their face as they traveled Atlantic
Boulevard," Shari Quest said.


WATER PLANT OPTIONS:
AB options:
provide reclaimed water to
Selva Marina Country Club, which
will take a small portion of nitro-
gen out of the river completely
*upgrade waste water plant #1
possible additional treatment
at waste water plant #2
ore-pipe some of the flow from
plant #2 to plant #1
NB options:
*re-use water process
o re-piping or re-circulating
screening process .
*utilize a new type of filtration
system used in the poultry indus-
try
build an advanced waste water
treatment plant although this
option is the least viable due to
costs
JB options:
demolish 11 existing facilities
no longer in use
rebuild the entire water treat-
ment plant
utilize sequential batch reac-
tion method that divides the
plant's entire water capacity into
four tanks with each tank com-
pleting the identical process every
six hours.


Since the JTA does not
endorse selling advertising on
the trolleys currently in service
in other areas of the city, Miller
said naming rights could be
available "to let people know
who is sponsoring it."
"It's the best kind of advertis-
ing they could buy," he.said.
Tents would be established at
area restaurants along the route
to encourage patrons to ride the
trolley. Miller said the route is
still in the preliminary design
stages. It will travel the length
of A1A.



Rules on

water will

cost cities

millions

Impact will
hike water rates

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A state mandate to limit the
levels of nitrogen in the St.
Johns River will cost the
Beach cities millions of dol-
lars, according to officials.
Each Beach city will have to
reduce the total maximum
daily loads (TMDL) of nitro-
gen in treated city water
because excess levels can
cause water quality problems,
according to Atlantic Beach
Utilities Director Donna
Kaluzniak.
In Atlantic Beach, the pro-
jected cost is approximately
$10.9 million after a three-
year financing plan. The city
is also interviewing consult-
ants which could initially
cost approximately $100,000
for preliminary work to
help determine the. most effi-
cient and cost effective solu-
tion, according to City
Manager Jim Hanson.
Neptune Beach estimates
that each option could cost
between 'approximately
$500,000 and $1 million, but
the operational expenses
could cost the city an addi-
tional $400,000 to $500,000
per year, according to ,City
Manager Jim Jarboe.
Preliminary costs estimates
for Jacksonville Beach are at
$20 million to upgrade the
city facility. A $6 million state
grant was awarded to the city
Aug. 3 to help cover the cost
of the project.
"Our entire water and
sewer budget for the year is $9
million so it is going to be an
enormous cost to the as tax
payers," City Manager George
Forbes said at the July 16 City
Council meeting.
"We're not done. We
intend to ask for more
money. This is a good start."
Jacksonville Beach has
obtained both wastewater
and stormwater NPDES per-
mits which will have nitrogen
limits added by the FDEP in
the coming years.
The engineering study for
the project is complete and
the design of the new plant is
underway.
City officials plan to seek
other funding options to
complete the work.
Jacksonville Beach Public
Works Director Ty Edwards
said the city will convert to
the traditional sequential
batch reactor method of treat-
ment.
"It's a better fit for our exist-
ing site and will allow us to
leave the plant in operation
[during the construction
phase]," Edwards said. "We
will still need to treat the
waste."
The design is 45, percent
complete. The city has a five-
year period to complete con-
struction.
"We'll get this built as soon
as we can," City Manager
George Forbes said.'

What's new at Beaches schools that open Monday


A new school year starts August 20 in Duval County and schools
throughout the Beaches are prepping.

Atlantic Beach Elementary [Principal Kim Wright]
*Enrollment: We're steadily growing. I think we were projected
to have 478 students last year. We're quickly approaching that.
We're at 440 right now, and are enrolling every day.
*Staff: We're fully staffed. We had three people retire, including
the former principal [All Register]. We've already replaced everyone,
have all our staff in place.
*Facilities: We have some projects in the works. We're having a
new parking lot installed in front of the school to facilitate parking,
so that parents aren't parking on the street. It should be starting
pretty soon.
New rules: After meeting with every grade level over the sum-
mer, we haven't had a need to add any additional rules. We have a
very strong parent base, a lot of parents who are helping.

Gen. Joseph Finegan Elementary [David Pinter]
*Enrollment: We'll be 491 at the start of the year; last year was
based on 525. Did the Kennedy's departure have any affect? It does,
but that was minimal. We did some checking to see what was what
from the Kennedy. It was only 16 children. Knowing they were
going to decommission the Kennedy, the Navy started reassigning
people.
*Staff: ESE children have gone back to their home schools. We
were slated to lose about 15 children from that, and were slated to
gain 15 from other schools. So it was a wash for us. Through attri-
tion it wasn't going to affect us, so I didn't have to eliminate any-
one.
*Facilities: They did some asbestos abatement in the old part of
the building. The front was built in the 1960s, the back is newer. Tile
in a lot of the classrooms had asbestos. They finished asbestos abate-
ment a month ago. In addition, they are retiling and recarpeting the
entire building. All summer long the building has been occupied,
and we had 'Operation Move-Out.' Every teacher had to move class-
rooms to the multipurpose room or cafeteria, then move back in.

Fletcher High [Dane Gilbert]
*Enrollment: We expect to open up somewhere around 2,500.
Last year, we opened up just short of 2,700. It was my plan to hope-
fully decrease enrollment by 100 or a little more each year over the
next three or four years. So we're kind of on track to do that. If we
opened up only 2,400, now it's quite a decrease, and it impacts your
budget and your staffing and everything else. You want to do it
incrementally.
*Staff: We lost teachers when I had to go for the spring budget in
March because we were projected for 2,500, and last year was almost
2,700. However, most of that loss of staff has been handled through
attrition. So while we lost positions, we haven't lost too many peo-
ple.
*Facilities: The science lab is being built on the east side of the
building. That will be available mid-October. So that will give us
another room in addition to better science facilities. It gives us
another classroom for overall space. They have restored gas to three
existing science lab buildings. So that doesn't give us additional
space, but upgrades our lab facilities.
*Policies and procedures: Same thing as far as ID policy. Dress
code remains the same.

Fletcher Middle [Laurie Flynnl
*Enrollment: We are budgeted on 1,275 Students, which is less
than last year. We are looking right now at 1,300, and we'll see what
shows up. We'll probably be between 1,275 and 1,300.
*Staff: Because our enrollment decreased, we lost several teachers.
Through natural transfers and attrition, we were able to do most of
that. We did have to.cut one person. We are now hiring people to
fill spots of the people who have transferred.
*Facilities: Our facilities are good. We're a little bit over capacity,
but we have the room for the 1,300.
*Policies and Procedures: We're following the same residency

requesting the same items at all the Beaches schools to try and facil-
itate what's going on at the high school. We're maintaining our 'no
backpack policy' for the second year. We'll do that one more year
and see how that goes.

facksonville Beach Elementary [Will Leinhauserl
*Enrollment: 630 students
*Staff: We will have three new teachers; all but one has been
hired.
*Facilities: Great shape. The school was painted this summer.
*Tasks at hand: I'm working on schedules. I'm working with the
school's leadership committee to select a theme for the year.

Mayport Elementary Nancy Bragan]
*Enrollment: This year's enrollment is at 548. Last year, the
school had 560. I think we're going to be close, because we don't
know how many kindergarten kids will have their shots in time.
The inclusion practice that's going to be in Duval County schools is
helping some schools and hurting others as far as enrollment. It's a
wash with us.
*Staff: We've had a couple retire, and two people came in. But, in
number, we're the same.
eFacilities: We're trying to upgrade the existing facilities. For
example, two portables that were in bad shape needed to be extract-
ed from the campus. We're doing an extensive cleanup and reno-
vation of the facility. We're in the process of adding a new'awning
for our car riders because they have to sit in the sun. We have a lot
of kids with asthma who have a problem doing that.
*Policies and Procedures: One of the things we're adding this
year is a software program called Fast Forward, which is a way to,
train the brain in a phonetic way. A lot of kids who are having dif-
ficulty in reading, scientifically they're finding that their brains are
not responding in the same way as a child who doesn't have that
kind of handicap. This program we're offering in our computer lab
is not a reading program, per se, but it's a way to get the brain to
speed up its processing. It's going to be an interesting little project
I'm going to be watching closely.
*Any new rules: We're pretty much running the same kind of
rules. We don't have any difference in the conduct code that I know
of.
Mayport Middle [Katrina McCray]
*Enrollment: Right now we're at 742. At the end of last year,
enrollment was 760.
*Staff: The staff stays the same size-wise.
*Facilities: This is a beautiful school, the way it's constructed.
There isn't anything major going on with facilities right now. The


only thing is we're going to be setting up our Read 180 classroom.
Read 180 is a new reading program the district adopted so that we
can get all our intensive reading children. They will be in there for
90 minutes.
*Policies and Procedures: As far as the general structure, what's
going on here, no changes. I will be putting a lot of emphasis on
vertical articulation between the high school and our school. I
found, since I was at Fletcher, we needed to stretch from the middle
school. That has been my vision. We need the kids to know more
when they come to us. Assistant principal Weisha Killette's going to
look at increasing the rigor in our courses for the eighth-grade kids.

Neptune Beach Elementary [Stephanie Manabatl
*Enrollment: We're at about 860. Normally we're in the high
900s to 1,000.
*Staff: The school has 14 new teachers, seven of whom are brand
new. The principal retired, lucky for me, and one teacher retired.
One transferred to another school, and the others have chosen to
stay home with young babies or find other careers. We're sitting at
two less [than last year] right now.
*Facilities: The school is adequate, big enough for the students
who are here. [A fully handicapped-accessible playground was ded-
icated early last year.] Now they've done an everybody playground.
It'll be opened to the public, and we'll have a dedication, once
school begins.
*Policies and Procedures: One that will start this year is the
inclusion of ESE students. Special needs students will be placed in
regular ed classes. The inclusion model is going on district-wide this
year. It's mandated.

San Pablo Elementary [Linda Grahaml
*Enrollment: Approximately 500. It's actually a decline in our
enrollment because of the number of students who are returning to
their home schools who were special needs students. So right now,
because we're a health and fitness magnet, the enrollment fluctu-
ates.
*Staff: Staffwise, we are pretty much where we were last year.
Three teachers retired. I only filled two of those positions because of
our decline in enrollment with our special needs.
*Facilities: We recently received new custodial services, DCA out
of Tennessee. The custodians are hurriedly running around trying
to get the school ready by the time the students and teachers return.
Space-wise, we're accommodating. In the main office area, we've
replaced our carpet. New blinds are being installed in all the class-
rooms.
*Procedures and policies: The only procedures we're making
sure are in place this year that we started late last school year, in
January, was the attendance and the tardy policies at the elemen-
tary level. There are now guidelines that the district has put irf place
for elementary students, the number of tardies each student has.
We're monitoring that process. We're going to be in full force this
year with that, hoping that we can get students here on time and in
classrooms. We give them a 5-10-minute grace period to get into the
classrooms. After 8:40, we start marking students tardy. We're going
to he enforcing that strictly this school year.

Seabreeze Elementary [Bill Dutter]
*Enrollment: Enrollment's about the same as last year. We have,
for the last 3-5 years, ranged from 525 to 560. Our budget's built on
546.
*Staff: I had one retiree and a couple transfers. Have hired new
staff to take that place. We're fully staffed. We're ready to go.
*Facilities: The facilities can hold to 600-plus. We don't have any
empty classrooms, but we aren't bulging yet. No additional porta-
bles. We have six on campus. [As to Seabreeze's shining hallways]
I've got to have the best custodial staff in the country. You could eat
off our floors.
*Policies and Procedures: We had a new tardy policy that came
out last year that we will again enforce. That'll be probably the
newest thing. But other than that, no, everything's pretty much the
same.

No excuse to run
To the editor:
The Florida Department of
Transportation, District Two
is proud to unite with area
law enforcement agencies to
focus attention on the issue
of Red Light Running. Each
year nearly one third of all
intersection crashes are
caused by drivers who run red
lights.
Running a red light is no
joke. Many people are killed
or badly injured each year
because someone cruised
through a red light. You may
be in a hurry, you may think


a red light
that the light doesn't stay
green long enough. Whatever
your excuse, it is no reason to
endanger the lives of other
motorists, passengers, pedes-
trians, or bicyclists who may
be in that intersection. There
is just NO EXCUSE for run-
ning a red light.

Who is overseeing the FHSAA?


To the editor:
A new year of high schools
sports is about to start. The
Florida High School Athletic
Association (FHSAA) oversees
high school sports but who
oversees the EHSAA? The
FHSAA needs more than closer
oversight, it needs total refor-
mation. Three cases in point:
1. A Lakeland HS star foot-
ball player admits to a reporter
on audiotape that he accepted
cash and gifts based on his
playing prowess, something
confirmed by some who paid
him. FHSAA penalty noth-
ing.
2. A Miami Northwestern HS
star football player is indicted
for statutory rape, the school
administration covers it up so
the player can play in the state
championship game. FHSAA
penalty -- $5,000.
3. FHSAA investigates Nease
HS (Ponte Vedra) for recruiting,
rules the student was not


recruited. FHSAA penalty --
$20,000, five years probation,
loss of football games.
You read that correctly,
FHSAA finds there was no
recruiting violation but penal-
ized the school anyway, levy-
ing the largest fine in FHSAA
history. Eight months after the
penalties are assessed, the
Commissioner admits that not
only was one of the charges
against Nease fabricated, but
they never even investigated its
validity. This results in no
reduction of the fipe or penal-
ties against the school.
Is this the organization we
want setting the rules and stan-
dards for our high school ath-
letes? Here's a really scary
thought: the FHSAA is oversee-
ing the steroids testing that is
going into effect. Get ready for
more travesties of justice.

Tax cuts should bring less fiscal waste


To the editor:
As the city, state and federal
governments .grapple with
reducing taxes at all levels of
government we citizens are
,grappling with reduced servic-
es. I for one hope; the tax',
reductions result in less fiscal
waste instead of fewer services.
I have been following the
issues of reduced funding, the
rising costs of obesity, and
increasing stresses on military
families with concern.
Atlantic Beach is a community
with close ties socially, physi-
cally and fiscally with Mayport
Naval Station. The school
board has directed our local
schools to refortify ties with
the base and I applaud this
effort.
I believe it is also time for
Atlantic Beach to step up to
the plate. As a community we
need to come together to take
care of our youth. One way we
can achieve this goal is to cre-
ate much needed ball fields on
underutilized public lands. By
forging partnerships with ath-
letic associations, the business,
social services, navy and local
communities, costs can be
minimized and, benefits maxi-
mized.
Local sports programs pro-
vide increased after school
activities. After school activi-
ties are proven to reduce juve-


nile crime, combat stress on
our military families, and add
value to neglected areas. Any
parent, and there are a lot of
us, who has had a child
involved in soccer or lacrosse
knows what a hardship the
shortage of playing fields is. As
a nation facing the ills of
increasing child hood obesity,
we need to provide every
opportunity for more kids to
participate in sports. As they
say "If you build it, they will
come."
Creation of additional ball
fields is also a wonderful
opportunity for our local
police department to get more
involved with our youth.
Police interaction on a social
and athletic level is a proven
crime prevention strategy.
Partnering with our local
Police Athletic Association will
provide a proven forum for
police to have a greater pres-
ence in parts of town that are
crying out for help in combat-
ing increased vice crimes.
Together we can make a pos-
itive impact on the lives of so
many whose families make
such great sacrifices for us. I
am committed to this project
and hope you will be too.

School start means drive extra safely


Would like t9 begin with a
very special thank you to
all of you who sent cards,
or called my office to express
concern for my health a few
weeks ago. I truly appreciate
the prayers and well wishes.
Following a battery of tests,
my doctors have released me
back to work as your Sheriff.
During this time, I have
learned to be more attentive to
my body, as any 46-year old
man should be. It's about eat-
ing healthy and exercising reg-
ularly and I am up to the task.

Also this month I would like
to remind all of our citizens as
well as visitors that schools
are back open which means
that our children are going to
and from school daily. I
would ask all of you to take
extra time and be extremely
careful in school zones as.well
as at bus stops. Following a
study, I have requested addi-,
tional personnel to be at
many of the 17 elementary
and seven middle schools dur-
ing the morning or afternoon
hours.. PSA's and or uni-
formed deputies will be dis-
patched to any areas where,
there may be traffic conges-
tion in an effort to alleviate
problems. In addition,
deputies will be at school
zones throughout the county


:. :-.

to monitor those zones and to
issue citations from time to
time.
.Motorists are reminded that
speeding fines are doubled if
they occur in a school zone.
Deputies will also be in
unmarked vehicles seeking
any motorists who pass
stopped school buses while
loading and unloading stu-
dents. As a reminder traffic in
both directions must come to
a complete stop for school
buses that are stopped, dis-
playing the "stop" signal. If
the roadway is separated by a
median of at least five feet
wide, motorists traveling in
the opposite direction are
exempt from stopping. Teach
your child to stand on the


sidewalk or on the grass while
waiting for their bus. Also,
teach them to make sure that
they can see the bus driver
and the bus driver sees them
before they cross in front of
the bus.
Students who walk to
school should do so on a side-
walk if it is available. If there
is no sidewalk, students
should walk against the flow
of traffic and be sure to cross
at marked crosswalks. Those
riding bicycles should remem-
ber to ride against the flow of
traffic and to follow all traffic
signs and signals. For younger
children, parents should map
out a safe way for them to
walk to school or to the bus
stop. Avoid busy roads and
intersections. Teach your
children not to talk to
strangers, go anywhere with
them, or accept gifts from
.them. Also, tell children that
if they see .a suspicious
stranger hanging around their
bus stop or school, they
should tell an adult or a
teacher.
* I urge ,all drivers to take
extra precaution at school bus,
stops where eager youngsters
may dart into the street as the
bus arrives. Remember these
are our leaders of tomorrow
and our most valuable
resource.


More letters to the editor:

Funding to Beaches Resource Center is vital necessity


To the editor:
An article in last week's
Beaches Leader suggested that
the funding..given to the
Beaches Resource Center from
the three Beaches cities was
used to fund "extra services".
This is clearly a misconcep-
tion. During the past academ-
ic school year, the BRC
received 573 referrals for serv-
ices to individuals or specific
families. Our staff functioned
at between 96 and 108 percent
of capacity. In spite of this,
the BRC averaged 31 Beaches'
children/families on our wait
list during the last 6 months
of the 2006-2007 school year.
Part of the money provided
by the Beaches Cities last year
was used to pay for a social
worker to run a weekly parent
education/support group for
families on the waitlist, so
that they would not be as iso-
lated and overwhelmed, as
they awaited necessary mental
health services. This money
was also used to pay for extra
hours this summer for a case
-manager to screen and direct


Beaches children/families to
critical clinical, economic and
social services.
Last year, another 1,573
Beaches students received
services through our neigh-
borhood grant program.
These children participated in
character building programs,
education about setting limits
in relationships and prevent-
ing abusive behaviors. Money
provided by all three Beaches
Cities helped us offer these
essential programs to your
children.
While the United Way of
Northeast Florida, The
Jacksonville Children's
Commission, and the Duval
County School Board are the
major Funders for the BRC,
the needs of children and
families at the Beaches exceed
that which can be met with
just their funding. The dollars
provided by all three of our
Beaches cities helps fill some
of the need and allows us to
keep families functioning and
children learning in school.
All three Beaches cities have


consistently recognized the
importance of supporting the
Beaches Resource Center. The
BRC is often the only place
where un- and under-insured
children/families can turn for
any type of mental health
service, drug screening/treat-
ment, violence and domestic
abuse prevention, as well as
economic aid. In town
providers don't have a pres-
ence at the Beaches and many
of the people we serve don't
have the means to get into
town. The demand for these
services exceeds that which
can be paid for by United
Way, JCC, and the DCSB.
Each Beach City needs to not
only continue to step up, but
to do so in a bigger way, so
that the wait for services can
be eliminated and help deliv-
ered at the moment of a fami-
ly's acute crisis.

New playground behind NB Elementary will benefit many


To the editor:
This past Saturday, a large
group of volunteers placed the
finishing touches on a new
playground in the park behind
Neptune Beach Elementary. I
had the privilege to participate
and witness once again how a
group of thoughtful, commit-
ted citizens can change our
community.
These groups of citizens
were lead by Sheri and Paul
Nicholson, residents of
Neptune Beach. They have


worked tirelessly the past 18
months coordinating and
leading this community proj-
ect which teamed Neptune
Beach Elementary PTA,
Neptune Beach teachers and
staff, Oceanside Rotary, Navy
personnel, City of Neptune
Beach public works and many
other Beaches community citi-
zens who were gracious with
their momentary support.
I have no doubt that there
will be many happy faces
when school starts, not to


mention the children that live
in the area that will love it as
well.
We continue to live in a
wonderful community and I
appreciate these organizations
and citizens who unselfishly
donate their time to improve
our Beaches community.
I look forward to crossing
paths with our next communi-
ty hero.

PHIL HUDGINS
COLUMNIST

The whole

history of the

Hudgins family

could've sunk

in the Atlantic

Some of us slow-learners
are about a dozen degrees
away from understanding
what "six degrees of separa-
tion" means. But I'm learn-
ing.
Here's one explanation
from Wikipedia:
If a person is one 'step'
away from each person he or
she knows and two 'steps'
away from each person who
is known by one of the peo-
ple he or she knows, then
everyone is no more than six
'steps' away from each per-
son on Earth."
I never was good in math
or calculus, but I'll accept
that explanation.
My next question is, how
many steps away are we all
from being related?
A lot, I hope. But kinfolks
turn up all the time, don't
they? And some of them are
really nice. I recently discov-
ered a fourth cousin who
knows more about my ances-
tors than I do. Her name is
Lanelle Martin Romines, a
congenial lady who was born
in my home county and later
moved to Tennessee.
Lanelle had read one of
my newspaper columns
online and e-mailed me. She
wanted to know who my
parents and grandparents
were. I told her. Turns out,
her great-grandmother was a
Hudgins before she married.
Lanelle took it from there.
Using her own and others'
research, she built a genealo-
gy that goes back to 1620
and Thomas Hudgins in
Liverpool, England.
One of Thomas' descen-
dants, William Hudgins, was
a shipbuilder, and he came
to America in 1740 on the
first ship he built. Some of
those Hudginses drifted
down in the 1800s to Hall
County, Ga., where I was
born and reared and got
caught laying out of school
because the principal's secre-
tary saw a bunch of us in
Kenneth Gregory's car at
D.A. Justus' store during class
time.
How easily history could
have changed. Let's say that
William Hudgins had pos-
sessed my talents for build-
ing ships or anything else,
for that matter. He builds
this huge vessel, 300 cubits
long and 50 cubits wide, as
noted in instructions handed
down by a relative named
Noah, christens it with a
cheap bottle of Thunderbird
wine and floats it out into
the Atlantic. Two hundred
yards out, the ship sinks. All
the Hudginses, known for
their swimming ability, make
it to shore, but never try for
America again.
William never became a
shipbuilder in Virginia. The
father of one of those
Houlder Hudgins boys -
there must have been a cou-
ple of dozen Hudgins men
named Houlder or Holder -
never became editor of the
New York Herald. My grand-
father never married Hattie
Mangum and never planted
cotton in Belmont, Ga. My
father never met my mother,
who consequently never
birthed three intelligent,
good-looking children.
I never got caught laying
out of Lyman Hall School
and never met my fourth
cousin, Lanelle.
And the theory about six
degrees of separation proba-
bly never developed, because


surely an American cousin
named Hudgins came up
with that stupid notion. All
because William didn't know
how to build a ship that
would float.
Now you know why
Houlder's daddy and I
became writers.

POLICE BEAT


ATLANTIC BEACH
Grand theft was reported
on Aug. 7 in the 90 block of
Ardella Way, according to a
police report. Two unknown
females stole the victim's
wheelchair from a driveway,
according to the report.

Fraud was reported on Aug.
9 in the 3200 block of Fleet
Landing, according to a police

JTA to extend bus service

into SJ for employees


FROM STAFF
Beginning Sept. 3, employees will have "con-
venient and direct" bus service to work in north-
ern St. Johns County, according to transportation
officials
JTA officials Wednesday unveiled plans for a
pilot program that will add a new bus route from
areas of Jacksonville with high concentrations of
employees working in the target area.
Mike Miller, director of external affairs at JTA,
said the primary focus of the project was to estab-
lish a connection between employees living out-
side of the Beaches with area employers.
"This is something we've been working on for a
long time," Jacksonville Beach City Councilor
Penny Christian, who proposed the service exten-
sion two years ago to aid the staff of major
employers such as the Sawgrass Marriott, The
Ponte Vedra Inn and Club and Baptist Medical
Center Beaches.
"It's exciting to see the fruits of our labor."
Jeffery Oliasami, hotel manager of Sawgrass
Marriott, also supported the project from the
beginning, attending public meetings and drum-
ming up interest among his employees.
"Two years ago we started talking about this lit-
tle request that we had," he said. 'What the JTA
has done is amazing. I'm so impressed. We should
all be thankful for them listening to us."


Over the last several months, Miller and his
project team conducted a series of public meetings
and transit talks to solicit input from employers
and potential riders regarding the types of servic-
es they would like to see offered.
Surveys were also distributed among the staff at
the major employers to help tailor the new bus
route directly to the employees.
Miller said the employee-driven surveys asked
questions about their work schedules and whether
they would use a service if it were direct and easy
and at what cost.
"How do we know people will use this? Are we
going to have more than two riders?" he said.
Of the 422 surveys distributed, 52 percent said
they would use the service, 21 percent were not
sure, eight percent had no response and 19 per-
cent said they would not use the service.
According to the statistics, 352 of the 475
employees at the Sawgrass Marriott live outside
the area. A total of 161 employees at the hotel
completed a survey. At the Ponte Vedra Inn &
Club, 171 staffers answered the survey. Eight
employees at St. Jphns Town Center and 82 hos-
pital employees also completed the survey, survey
"This has been a very long road," he said.
"When changes are made in JTA service, it's a very
thorough, comprehensive and well-thought out
change."

Ten tips for college freshmen
-, ,. ', . i :. : .... .' ., .-. '^ .. . 5~ ? o: r *- "3 *


by SUSAN McCONNELL.
CONTRIBUTOR

exciting part of life for
most teens. Before leav-
ing home, parents give lots of
advice (most going in one ear
and out the other). College
freshmen can't wait to get
away from parental authority
and "make it" on their own.
As a counselor, author,
youth worker and mother of
two recent college graduates, I
have witnessed many students
taking off for college.
Some have graduated and
become successful. Others left
college for various reasons and
pursued other interests. Based
on these experiences, I would
like to offer a few tips of my
own for college freshmen. So,
consider these ideas to make
that freshmen year successful:-
1. Go to class everyday. Sit
near the front of the room
and take notes. Take advan-
tage of your professors' office
hours. Make a contact with
him/her to show you are
interested in class. Attending
class and taking notes will
help you succeed, especially if
testing is not a strong point.
2. Use a debit card or cash,
not credit cards. Banks are
notorious for offering credit
cards to college students (you
get a free T-shirt or pizza
when you apply!). Beware of
spending more than you can
afford. Many college students
drop out of school because of
debt.
3. Make good friends who
will keep you accountable to
your values. At home, parents
kept you accountable for your
behavior. At college, you need
good friends who will help


you make good decisions.
4. Get involved with a serv-
ice organization and/or
church to feel a part of your
community. Happy people are
those who put others first.
They get involved in helping
others. For the next four (or
more) years, college will be
your home. Make the most of
it!
5. Keep your room clean
and keep your relationship
with your roommate tidy.
Many freshmen who leave
college will cite poor,room-
mate relationships as a reason
for quitting. Be respectful of
your roommate by keeping.
your room clean and by being
thoughtful and polite. (You
will learn to do this when you
are married one day.)
6. Don't take an 8 a.m. class
first semester. Getting up on
your own for the first time in
your life may be difficult if
you are a night owl. Make it
easy on yourself by not taking
an early class first semester
(especially during football sea-
son!).
7. Stay away from fast food
to avoid the "freshman 15."
Mom won't be there to cook
nutritious meals for you.
Eating out and eating fast
food leads to gaining weight
for many college freshmen.
Choose carefully where and
what you eat.
8. Don't have a serious rela-
tionship your freshman year.
With over 4,000 fresh faces on
campus this fall, much excite-
ment is generated to date.
Remember that you have four
years in school and a lot of
maturing to do. So don't com-
plicate life with a serious rela-
tionship. There will be plenty
of time for that later. Get


adjusted to college life first.
9. Don't go out with a
drunk and don't get drunk.
Bad things happen. A reputa-
Stion is easy to get and hard to
get rid of. Parents aren't there
to tell you not to drink and
party; but their reasons are
still valid. Mistakes made
while impaired by alcohol and
drugs can affect your life for-
ever. Be smart.
10. Keep in touch with fam-
ily and friends at home.
When college is completed,
you may choose to go back
home.

selor and author of Raising

MusicDramaDance Camp celebrates 'Finale' today


FROM STAFF
At 2 p.m. today, over 40 students
will perform in a graduation and arts
presentation titled "Finale" for the
MusicDramaDance Camp at Christ
the Redeemer Church at 190 S. Roscoe
Blvd.
The camp is a new venture at the
Ponte Vedra Church. It was held for
"anyone who has a talent or who
wants to discover their talent," said
Robin Sheffield, a clergy member at
Christ the Redeemer.
"God has a destiny for every person.
He gives us gifts to fulfill that talent."
For some people that may be a tal-
ent in the arts, she said.
Sheffield and Kris Joslyn, the
church's Worship Leader for Youth,
worked together to organize the camp.
Joslyn said that he wanted to offer
the youth in the worship ensemble an
opportunity to work on their skills
during the summer.
Sheffield and Joslyn began dis-
cussing having a MusicDramaDance
Camp last April and "put it together
quickly," she said.
As they planned the camp, the
number of areas of study to be offered
expanded and they also decided to
open the camp to youth and adults.


One of their hopes for the camp
was also "to open it to the commu-
nity," said Sheffield.
About one-quarter of those who
attended the camp axe from the
community and are not active at the
church.
The organizers also looked to the
community to find instructors for
the camp, said Sheffield.
Students were encouraged to
select a major and a minor area of
study during the week-
long camp. Areas of
study included voice,
drama, dance, videog-
raphy, technical sound
and lighting, and var-
ious musical instru-
ments.
Ian Kelly, one of
the14 instructors at
the camp, is the bass
guitar instructor. He is
a student at UNF, a
member of the UNF
Jazz Ensemble, and
active at Christ the
Redeemer.
Students at the camp
"are enjoying it a lot.
They are full of ener-

ROB

SPORTS EDITOR


Going


batty after


being hit


by a pitch

Former major league All-
Star Jose Offerman has
been charged with two
counts of second-degree
assault after hitting a pitcher
and catcher with his bat when
he was plunked in a minor
league game.
Offerman, playing for the
Long Island Ducks, homered
in the first inning and in his
next at bat was hit in the calf
by Bridgeport pitcher Matt
Beech. Offerman charged the
mound with his.bat and took
three wild swings, hitting
Beech's hands as the pitcher
attempted to defend himself
and catcher John Nathans in
the back of the head on a
backswing.
Nobody can defend
Offerman's behavior and he
has rightly been suspended
indefinitely by the Atlantic
League.
But what is the proper
recourse for a batter that is
intentionally hit by a pitcher?
Some players charge the
mound, sans bat, and engage
in a weak effort at fighting.
Teammates quickly intervene
and the whole hfacas is odve~itir
a matter of seconds.
In the National League a
pitcher may get his just
desserts if he is drilled the
next time he comes to the
plate.
In the American League,
however, settling the score is a
bit trickier. Since pitchers
don't bat, it's usually some
innocent player in the lineup
that has to take one for the
team. Or an infielder may be
knocked off his feet with a
hard slide as a measure of
revenge.
But maybe there's a better
form of retaliation. The player
who gets plunked should jog
to first base and not say any-
thing.
Next time up, however, he
should swing with all his
might and let go of the bat
sending it helicoptering out
toward the pitcher. Most
hurlers will have quick
enough reflexes to get out of
the way but the message will
be delivered: Risk injuring me
with a 90-plus mph ball and
you'll get some in return.
A pitched ball can end a
player's career Tony
Conigliaro, anyone? or put
a batter on the disabled list.
Hitters wear helmets for a rea-
son, and many of today's play-
ers stride to the plate with so
much body armor they look
like police dog trainers. But
the danger is real.
Look, the flying bat remedy
is not for every situation.
Sometimes batters are hit by
accident. A dearth of pitching
talent ensures that plenty of
hurlers who take the mound
simply don't have the com-
mand to throw strikes at will.
And other pitchers make
sure that when they do intend
to plunk a batter the ball is
aimed for the lower extremi-
ties or keister.
Those are not instances in
which revenge should be con-
sidered.
It's when a pitcher throws at
a batter's head or tries to hit
his hands that the twirling bat
may come into play. The idea
is not to injure the pitcher,
but scare him the way a high
and tight fastball puts fear
into every hitter.
It-would be better if the
intentional beanball was not
part of the game. But it
appears here to stay and while
no one condones Offerman's
form of retaliation, hitters
need something to get back at
men who stand 60 feet, six
inches away and can end a
career with one well-placed,
bad-intentioned pitch.

self in a pitched battle with
Artose Pinner, Naufahu Tahi
and Richard Owens to serve as
backups for running backs
Adrian Peterson and Chester
Taylor.
Peterson, a rookie, was the
Vikings top selection in last
April's NFL draft. He has
looked impressive in training
camp and gives head coach
Brad Childress plenty of
options with the running
game. Minnesota has lined up
both Peterson and Taylor in
the backfield, used either run-
ner with a fullback in the I-
formation, and even split one
back to wideout during presea-
son scrimmages.
On the team's depth chart,
Mewelde Moore is listed as
third behind Peterson and
Taylor, but there is an expecta-
tion that the Vikings will keep
four running backs along with
a pair of fullbacks, Jim
Kleinsasser and Tony

Fason was drafted in the
fourth round in 2005 by the
Vikings and went on to rush
32 times for 62 yards and four
touchdowns in his rookie
campaign. He also had two
kick returns for a total of four
yards in 13 games that season.
Last year, hampered by a
shoulder injury, the former
Senator and Gator played in
only five games but carried
the ball 18 times for 99 yards
and one score. He also caught
four passes for 19 yards.
The 24-year-old Fason is
entering the third and final
year of his first contract but
he's fighting for a position
with others who have longer-
term deals, including Jeff
Dugan, a converted tight end
who has been effective in
short-yardage situations
throughout training camp.
There is an outside shot that
Minnesota may keep five run-
ning backs as an insurance
policy against Peterson and
Taylor, both of whom have
had injury-plagued seasons in
the past though Peterson's
were in college. If that hap-
pens, Fason will almost
assuredly survive final cuts on
Sept. 1 when the roster is
trimmed to 53 active players.

really appreciate them."
The team also got a big lift
from the Ponte Vedra Pop
Warner Instructional League,
started by Jerry Norton, which
helps players learn the game at
an advanced level.
"I've known some of the kids.
since they started playing in
the developmental league but
they were always too heavy to
play on our teams," Mazza said.
"The league Jerry started is a
big thing. They get former NFL
guys to help out. It's been a
huge thing for Ponte Vedra
football."
The freshman team molds
itself around Howard's
schemes.
"We try to run a similar
offense as Coach Howard
does," Mazza said. You can't
run it all, but you can run it to
a point."
Howard and his staff have
made appearances at freshman
practices since the start, a big
boost for the players out there.
"He'll come out here after
doing his own practice in the
morning and maybe give a
speech to the kids," Mazza said.
"That really helps motivate
them to play here.
"Coach Howard put together
a great staff. I was honored to
be asked by him to come here
and coach. Bill Bates has really
helped out a lot here too. They
just have this phenomenal staff


that's helped us out tremen-
dously.
"It's a big family atmosphere.
The Nease coaches have their
practices in the morning and
some of them will come out in
the afternoon and help out.
It's all one big team."
It's all about the kids, too.
"I've been around most of
these kids since they were nine
years old," Mazza said. "I've
watched them grow. I remem-
ber when they were little kids
and now they've become
young men.
"I've gotten to see them
progress as players throughout
the years, up to this level. Pop
Warner has really helped out
over the years. Some of these
kids were even on the confer-
ence championship team last
year. We have a lot of good


kids. They all make good
grades. They're all good kids to
coach."
Problem is, most of this
year's frosh team won't be in
the Nease program once the
new high school is up and run-
ning in Ponte Vedra. Mazza
predicts at least half the team
will wind up at the new school.
"We've talked about that and
we're not going to worry about
that right now," Mazza said.
"This team is all about Nease
this year. We'll worry about
that stuff when it happens, but
we're a part of Nease right now.
That's all we're worried about."
The team starts play in the
first week of Sept. against
Hilliard Middle-Senior High
School. The freshmen will pay
seven games this season, all on
Thursday nights.

NFL views concussions as cause for concern


rT- Ee NFL prides itself on
bone-jarring hits. Watch
ESPN, and they have a
feature that they refer to a
"Jacked Up," when a player is
hit so hard he comes off his
feet.
Nothing gets the crowd off
its feet faster that one of these
hits. However, in many cases
the player is not so quick to
get utp. Concussions are often
the end result, and while many
players have returned to play
during the course of the game
after a concussion, these hits
can have long lasting repercus-
sions,
Now NFL officials and sports
medicine physicians are taking
a harder look at the long term
effects that these repeated hits
may have on the player.
HBO's Real Sports recently
focused on former NFL player
Andre Waters, who had a suc-
cessful 12 year career which
Ended in 1995. He was known
to have had many concussions
during his career.


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


Having suffered with depres-
sion for a number of years,
Waters shot and killed himself
in November of last year, at
the age 44.
Real Sports then introduced
the viewer to Chris Nowinsky,
a Harvard educated biotech
consultant who has been
studying the link between con-
cussion and long term memo-
ry loss, dementia, and depres-


sion. Nowinsky is only 28 and
is already battling depression
and memory loss himself, hav-
ing suffered many concussions
during his playing career at
Harvard.
Nowinsky arranged for a
pathologic study of Waters'
brain, by Pittsburgh physician
Bandon Umala, who found
that it resembled that of an 80-
year-old man.
Interestingly, Dr. Umala had
also studied the brains of for-
mer NFL players Mike Webster
and Terry Long, both of whom
had died prior to age 50, and
showed severe degenerative
changes similar to Water's find-
ings.
Dr. Umala surmises that
repeated blows to the head
leads to premature aging of the
brain, a belief shared by Dr.
Robert Cantu, a leading expert
in sports concussions. For
years, he has been evaluating
players with similar problems.
Cantu sites research that shows
NFL players who had had three
concussions were three times


more likely to suffer from
depression, and five times
more likely to have early
Alzheimer's disease.
Some players can't sign their
name, can't complete basic
hygiene tasks and some strug-
gle to dress themselves.
NFL players are supposed to
be gladiators, and despite the
fact that they may be hurt,
there is this undercurrent of
pressure for them to return to
the field of play. If a player
returns to play too soon after a
concussion, then the risks of a
second concussion increase
dramatically.
According to the NFL, half
of all players who sustain a
concussion during a game go
back in for further play, includ-
ing some 25 percent who are
actually knocked out cold.
Dr. Cantu believes that a
player's risk of later problems
increases if a player returns to
play prior to being completely
over a concussion. Even more
frightening, the risk of head
injury related death increases


dramatically as well if a player
returns to competition too
quickly and suffers another
concussion, known as "Second
Impact Syndrome."
A University of North
Carolina study directly related
17 deaths over a 13-year time
span to repeat concussion
injury.
Many blame the NFL for not
doing enough to help protect
its current and former players.
However, in an NFL sponsored
study, a team of doctors looked
at several hundred players and
their report that this "concern"
was overblown.
Dr. Ira Casset, who was paid
by the NFL, headed this com-
mittee and he believes that
there is no evidence linking
multiple head injuries to
depression, dementia, early
Alzheimer's, or any long term
problems at all.
While NFL-sponsored doc-
tors may feel that the players
are at no greater risk, critics
claim that the NFL is trying to
shield itself from medical-legal


Summer Beach Run slated for September


It's mid-August so it must be
time for that summertime
classic, the Carrabba's
Summer Beach Run, right?
Hold onto your fast-twitch
fibers, race fans, the annual
five-miler in the sand is still a
full month away.
So before you can say "What
are they waiting for, a hurri-
cane?" calm down and go for
another sweat-soaked training
run.
"We couldn't do it at any
other time," explained race
director, Doug Aired. "All of
the tides for every Saturday in
August were way, way off. We
wouldn't have had any beach.
"Then we thought to hold it
on Labor Day but that didn't
work out because we couldn't
get permission to use the Jax
Beach SeaWalk Pavilion
because city employees don't
work on Labor Day."
By the time all the necessary
elements lined up, the date
that Aired and the Jacksonville
Track Club (host of the event)
were left with was September,
15th. It will be only the second
time in the race's long history
that the event will be held so
late in the year, and the first
time it was quite unintention-
al.
"There was one race in the
1980s that was postponed due
to all the hurricanes we had.
The race was finally run in
mid-September. But it turned
out to be a good thing, it was
the coolest Summer Beach Run
we ever had and there was
even a tailwind all the way
down the beach," Aired
recalled.
A cool SBR would be a truly
wonderful thing, especially
after the relentless high
humidity and 90 degree tem-
peratures we have had lately.
Of course, we wouldn't be
blessed by a tailwind through-
out the full five-mile course as
they were in the '80s. Back
then, the course was a straight
north-to-south straight shot
down the beach. Today the
course is out-and-back and you
can be sure that if there is a
wind it will be in your face for

at least two and a half miles.
This will be the 43rd run-
ning of the event, making it
not only the oldest race in
town but also the oldest race
in the state. Hard to imagine
that it has been around so long
and I can't help but marvel at
all the changes the SBR must
have seen.
There were the years in the '
1960s when the race's competi-
tors were mostly high school
and college athletes, a small
but fast crowd.
Then there was the Age of
Eccentrics; only nut cases ran
five miles and just the real
loonies did it in the middle of
the afternoon (for many years


the race started at one or two
o'clock.)
By the late 1970s the
"Running Boom" had come to
town and, in addition to the
nutters, some "normal" people
ran the race as well. It grew
and grew until the late 1980s
when the sport of running -
and the race itself -began to
wane. The glory days were
over.
Or were they?
Women discovered running
sometime in the '90s and
brought the race back to life.
Doctors issued warnings: "You
better get some cardiovascular
exercise", and the middle-aged
"baby boomers" returned.
Now it is the "cause groups,"
runners and walkers for chari-
ties, who fuel the latest growth
surge. And the 42-year-old SBR
is still there to entertain them
all.
Aired said, "We had 1,500
people last year and that is the
most we have had in the
Beach Run in quite a while."
He continued. "I hope we
can do that well this year but,
trouble is, there is the
Florida/Tennessee game in
Gainesville the same night.
They can run and still see it on
TV, but we will lose the people
who want to watch it in the
Swamp.

big gap from the Run For The

Pies until the Summer Beach
Run so everybody was really
excited when the race came
around," said Aired. "This time
there will be six weeks from
the last race, The Tour de Pain,
until the Beach Run, that's
almost unheard of around here
these days, so it should help
the turnout."
The SBR is normally the
opening event of a new
Jacksonville Grand Prix season
but this time around that dis-
tinction went to The Tour de
Pain, a race that has never
been a Grand Prix event. Those
who missed that race and who
want to compete in the GP
had better not miss the SBR or
they will find themselves too
far behind so early in the
game.
The race also features $600
in prize money, age-group
awards, the ubiquitous race T-
shirt, a team competition and
a one-mile fun run (medals for
all the kids).
The great post-race party,
generously hosted by
Carrabba's Italian Grill,
includes pasta, live music and

Guitarist Nick Colionne headlines Sunday's jazz concert at the SeaWalk Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach.




Colionne caps summer jazz series


FROM CONTRIBUTOR

The final concerts of
the Jacksonville
Beach Summer Jazz
Series takes place
this Sunday at the
SeaWalk Pavilion.
The event is free and open
to the public.
Jazz guitarist Nick
Colionne, the headliner, per-
forms at 7:30 p.m.
Jeff Kashiwa, a jazz saxo-
phonist, performs at 6 p.m.
The Navy Band Southeast
Jazz Ensemble opens the
event at 5 p.m.
An art show also will be
held in Latham Plaza.

Nick Colionne
Colionne, who celebrates
his birthday on Sunday, was
voted "Best International
Instrumental Artist of the
Year" at April's Canadian
Smooth Jazz Awards.
A Chicago native and resi-
dent, Colionne grew up in a
musical household.
His mother and stepfather
listened to a lot of jazz and
were fans of guitarists Wes
Montgomery and Kenny
Burrell.
Learning guitar from his
stepfather, Colionne was
playing by the age of 9.
Growing up in Chicago,


photo submitted
Jeff Kashiwa spent 10 years
with The Rippingtons.

he was' also heavily influ-
enced by blues musicians
and played with artists like
the Impressions and the
Chi-lites when he was
young.
Colionne has released five
CD's and played with R&B
greats such as Curtis
Mayfield, Al Green and the
Staples Singers.
His debut hit in 1994, "It's
My Turn," climbed all the
Smooth Jazz Charts.
In 2004, the song "High
Flyin" became one of the
year's biggest Smooth Jazz


hits.
The CD "Just Come on In"
was awarded Best Jazz CD at
the Chicago Music Awards.
In 2006, he released the
CD "Keepin It Cool."
The first track released to
radio, "Always Thinking of
You," cracked the Top 10.
Invited as one pf the
opening acts on the All Star
Smooth Jazz Cruise in 2006,
Colionne was such a crowd
pleaser that he was invited
back to host the jam ses-
sions this year and in 2008.

Jeff Kashiwa
Kashiwa, a native of
Seattle, became one of the
most dynamic live saxo-
phonists in contemporary
jazz during his decade-long
tenure with The
Rippingtons.
While the Rippington's
busy recording and touring
schedule dominated his pro-
fessional life, Kashiwa still
found time to lay the foun- '
dation for his eventual solo
career. He released his first
two solo recordings,
"Remember Catalina" in
1995 and "Walkamile" in
1997.
A year after leaving the
Ripps in 2000, Kashiwa
made an immediate impact
on the smooth jazz charts,


scoring a No. 1 hit with
"Hyde Park (The Aah, Ooh
Song)" from his debut CD
"Another Door Opens." He
later released the acoustic-
oriented "Simple Truth" in
2002 and "Peace of Mind" in
2004.
"While I've always been
inspired by great melodic
saxophonists-like-Stan Getz,
I watch 'The Actor's Studio'
regularly on Bravo and am
fascinated by the way
famous movie actors talk
about their craft," he says.
"No matter how successful
they are and how happy
they should be with their
previous success, they're
always more focused on
what's next. It's the same
with me, and I'm always
looking forward to what's on
the horizon. That means get-
ting in touch with who I am
as a musician, feeling com-
fortable in the studio and
knowing that it's time to
play."
Navy Band Southeast
Navy Band Southeast's
Jazz Ensemble, based at NAS
Jacksonville, will bring the
sounds of the Big Band Jazz
era alive.
Concert goers are encour-
aged to bring blankets or
lawn chairs. Call 247-6100
for more details.

"Nina" by Jim Draper

"In the group of new paint-
ings, Draper explores species
native to the area, as well as
species that were introduced
by the Europeans as they con-
quered the Americas," said
Hillary Tuttle of Stellers.
"Subjects include cattle and
pigs that were brought here by
the Early Spanish settlers."
A milestone in Draper's
career includes his recent
Healing Palms series of paint-
ings. According to Draper, the
strength and courage these
resilient trees portray have
captured the attention of
numerous medical facilities
that have purchased the paint-
ings to install near patient
treatment areas.


Beaches Art Walk


kicked off Tuesday


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Last spring, Mayport
Elementary School art teacher
Judi Evans thought about start-
ing an art walk at the Beaches.
Tuesday, Evans wasn't talk-
ing about it anymore, she was
doing it.
Evans was one of 27 artists
displaying artworks at one of
10 venues that comprised the
inaugural Beaches Art Walk.
Six of the venues were on
First Street North in
Jacksonville Beach.
Twisted Sisters in
Jacksonville Beach hosted an
opening reception. Dolphin
Works Inc., a Florida non-prof-
it, sponsored the event.
"We hope to continue it
through September, October
and November," said Eric
Goodling, executive director of
Dolphin Works.
"The walk is to benefit the
venues, the artists and the pub-
lic. If all works well, we'll start
again in March.
"This is great because you get
such an immediate return. You
see the excitement in an artist's


eye. You see the general public
happy to have an inexpensive
but cultural experience."
The Beaches Art Walk came
about through committee
work by Goodling, Evans, Lisa
Cook of Cook Fine Art, Nancy
Faulkner and Ryan McCarthy.
"Ryan and I are.the adminis-
trative leg, the ladies are the
creative side," said Goodling.
"That alone, plus their
enthusiasm, is why the art
walk's nothing like I pictured.
It's a lot better."
Finding venues was relative-
ly easy, he said.
"They understood the
importance, and they were on
very quickly. Artists were kind
of similar. And the quality will
be seen, because there is some
really good art," added
Goodling.
The artists were chosen
through a juried art show.
"We've had more artists
apply. We know the venues
will grow by at least three, and
the artists by seven," said
Goodling.

'High School Musical' doesn't pass the grade


H ere's where I won't be
tonight at 8 in
front of my TV set,
anticipating the "world pre-
miere" of Disney Channel's
"High School Musical 2."
This is not a review of the
movie. Like most critics, I
was not privy to a preview
tape. But I have experienced
"High School Musical 1,"
much like Floridians experi-
ence Category 2 hurricanes
every summer.
Of course, there's no argu-
ing with success. The first
film's premiere in Jan. 2006
set the all-time ratings
record for TV-movies. Thus,
it's now a cash cow for The
Disney Co., who never saw a
tie-in they didn't bleed to
death.
Many parents have
expressed gratitude for a
movie the entire family can
watch. But for these eyes at
least, "High School Musical"
is the offspring of 1960s
Disney hits like "The Ugly
Dachshund," where nobody
in the movie acts like a rec-
ognizable human being.
The film concerns basket-
ball star Troy ("Hairspray's"
Zac Efron) and bookish
Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens)
-- whom, despite themselves,
get thrown together for their
high school's annual musical
production. That's bad news
to popular siblings Ryan and
Sharpay (Lucas Grabeel and
Ashley Tisdale), who previ-
ously had the annual show's
starring roles all to them-
selves.
Astaire & Rogers musicals
had plots almost as wispy, so
let it pass. What can't be
ignored are (1) characteriza-
tions that turn on them-
selves, and (2) musical num-
bers that wouldn't pass muster
for bad "American Idol"
auditions.
Yes, the movie is popular
and G-rated. But if you're
insulting your audience's
intelligence, don't pat your-
self on the back just for not
using swear words.
Disney ingenue Ashley
Tisdale is a triple non-threat:
She's not in any way talent-

ed, funny, or cute. Yet she
acts as though her every
move deserves a round of
applause. And when Brother
and Sister do their big,
touchy-feely audition num-
ber, well, call it G-rated if
you want, but it made me
twitchily uncomfortable.
And Troy's big number is a


good example of this musi-
cal's non-music. "Get'eha
Head in the Game" high-
lights Troy's conflict between
his jock-y sports side and his
artistic musical side. Fair
enough, except this song is
not really a song at all, it's
mostly bouncing basketballs,
supported by a backbeat and
rapid-fire editing. ("Game" is
a big "hit" from the movie,
but have you ever heard any
kid actually "sing" it?)
The movie's producers
.really don't care about, the
adult audience (except when
the adults shell out money
for the tie-ins). Newsweek
reports that "HSM's" director
was told, "Don't make the
movie for parents," as if a
mature viewpoint might
scotch the whole deal.
But a musical can be both
intelligent and family-friend-

Blind tasting pinot noirs a lot of fun


inot noir is one of the
most challenging grapes
to grow in the world. No
doubt every winemaker wants
to try, but its thin skins and
temperamental nature make it
difficult in even the best of
regions.
That it's a highly enviable
grape to grow is a tribute to
Burgundy, which is indis-
putably the leader in making
wine from this capricious
grape variety.
At its best, pinot noir is a
sensuous grape with subtle
characteristics so unlike
cabernet sauvignon with
brawny tannins, high alcohol
and more obvious flavors.
Pinot noir's characteristics are
regularly copied, but rarely
with the success of great bur-
gundy.
We recently decided to
blind taste some pinot noirs
from around the world just to
see if we could identify the
country of origin. Surprisingly,
it wasn't difficult to pick out
the wines from Oregon,
California, New Zealand,
France and even Chile. The
style and gout de terroir can
make a difference.
It's a lot of fun to do this
blind tasting with neighbors,
as we did, because it's an easy
way to become educated on
the influences of terroir.
Here are some pinot noirs
we have tasted recently:
Taz Pinot Noir Fiddlestick
Vineyard Santa Rita Hills
2005 ($36). Smokey, spicy
nose. Deep rich bold black
cherry smoky flavors with a
hint of dak and spice.
Stoller Pinot Noir 2005
($45). Dense, ripe berry fla-
vors with a touch of tobacco,
pepper and forest-floor. Very
big, luscious wine.
Vavasour Pinot Noir 2003


TOM MARQUART
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'

($24). Floral, violet aromas
with vibrant plum flavors and
a touch of cinnamon. Good
concentration and purit, of
fruit. From the Awatere Valle\.
Kim Crawford Pinot Noir
2005 ($17). Bright cherr\ fla-
vors with sweet vanilin cj k
and great texture.
Drylands Pinot Noir 2005
($18). From the southern
Awarere and Wairau Valley,
this pinot noir is simple with
bright strawberry and plum
fruit flavors.
Row Eleven Pinot Noir
2004 ($20). Cherry aromas
with a hint of earth and vanil-
la. Simple but charming.
Red Bicyclette Pinot Noir
2005 ($12). A great value in
the normally expensive pinot
noir category, Red Bicyclette
sports simple plum aromas
with a jammy, ripe strawberry
flavor. Medium body,,but deli-
cious.
Foley Santa Rita Hills
Rancho Santa Rose Pinot
Noir 2005 ($37), Santa Rita
Hills is disputably the best
California region for pinot
noir. Small in size, the appela-
tion has the perfect environ-
ment for this grape variety.
The Foley vineyard is up i,00) i
feet and combines seven


clones of pinot noir to make a
very big wine with big black
cherry and blueberry notes
with hints of mushrooms and
tea It's a wine with good grip
and a lastng impression.
TAZ Cuyama River Pinot
Noir 2005 ($28). Full bodied,
opulent and fruit forward.
Floral and raspberry aromas
followed by generous raspber-
ry and cherry flavors and
smooth mouthfeel. Delicious.
Bailevana Grand Firepeak
Cuvee Pinot Noir 2005 ($38)
This burgundian-like pinot
noir shows off lots of cherry
fruit and a rich texture.
J Vineyards Russian River
Valley Pinot Noir 2005 ($36).
Light color dehes the opulent
black cherry and raspberry fla-
vors. Generous cherry aromas
and a hint of spice on the
nose. Soft mouthfeel and lin-
gering finish. A beautiful wine
from a house known for its
sparkling wine.
Toasted Head Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast 2005 ($18).
Nice spicy cherry nose.
Medium bodied with expres-
sive cherry flavors. Should go
well with salmon, chicken or
pork dishes. Easy to drink at a
painless prce.
Belle Glos Pinot Noir
Taylor Lane Vineyard 2004
($54). \Ve have enjoyed Belle
Glos wines in the past and
this one is no exception. A
generous nose and flavor of
ripe and dried cherries with
some earthy notes in the
mouth. A very expressive
pinot noir that is very pleas-
ing to drink.
TASTING NOTES
Castello di Gabbiano
Chianti Classico Riserva
2004 ($23). Deep rich color
smooth rich cherry, berry fla-
vors. Very agreeable and easy
to drink with traditional
Italian foods.

may also have a potentially
dangerous situation on your
hands. Here's how to fix it
fast.
In addition to wasting a pre-
cious resource, a steady drip
can cause water damage to the
foundation of your house -
potentially a very serious
problem. The last thing you
want are foundation problems
that can cost thousands of
dollars and seriously affect the
value of your house. Also, if

HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'
mate, a dripping faucet can
cause the pipes in your house
to freeze and then burst;
another potentially expensive
repair.
So take a moment to fix
that pesky leak and make sure
it does not come back to
haunt you in the future.
In most cases, the leak can
be repaired by tightening the
packing nut that is directly


under the spigot. Using a
wrench, give the nut a quarter
turn. In most cases, this will
take care of the drip.
If this does not work, you
may need to shut off the
water and replace the spigot.
That is a much more compli-
cated repair but it is always
best to try the simple easy fix
first and go from there.
In many cases, this simple
tightening will stop the leak
and you are on your way. You
.have saved some water and
prevented damage to the
foundation of your home.
Quick and easy, just the way
we like all our home improve-
ment tasks!
And if you still need help,
be sure to visit
www.BeJane.com for a video
showing you the steps
described above. Good luck!

Hugs n' hammers,
Jane

You may be able to fix a
leaky outside faucet by

cases, this will take care

10 ways to give your house a face lift


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST


t seems there are more cos-
metic surgery options--._
becoming available to keep
us looking younger ever
longer. Our faces aren't the
only places that need an occa-
sional lift, nip or tuck. As our
homes age, so does their
appearance. If you find that
you tell people how to find
your house by the rusting fix-
tures at the front or the over-
grown hedges, then it's time
to take your home's appear-
ance into your own hands
and give it a face lift. Here's
how.
Repaint. This is possibly the
cheapest and easiest fix there
is. Paint store experts are also
experts at selecting paint col-
ors and many even have
palettes pre-made. For the best
help, take a picture of your
home, take it into your paint
store and have the paint pro-
fessional advise you on what
colors should go where on
your house.
Shutter up. Easy shutters
can be made from one-by-
fours for a rustic look, and
inexpensive vinyl shutters can
be found at almost any home
center. Of course, a less-com-
mon shutter, such as a board-
and-batten style or Bahama
shutter that are 6ften seen in
coastal homes, will score
higher on the curb appeal
meter.
Replace windows. Old win-
dows can seriously detract
from the looks of a house.
Windows age with time and
so do the styles. Even replac-
ing screens can sometimes
make a big improvement.
New fixtures. Lighting fix-
tures go in and out with styles
and because outdoor fixtures

This beautiful Houston home has many features that make for great curb appeal. A curving path, black shutters on the bottom windows and beautiful landscaping all
create an inviting and welcoming look. With some homeowner elbow grease, simple changes and updates to a home's exterior can be made easily and inexpen-
sively.


are exposed to the elements,
they often begin rusting and
looking bad quickly. Give
yours a quick repaint if it is
still stylish or replace it if it is
badly out of date.
Go garage. Because this
door is so large, it takes up a
lot of the view of your home.
Updating it with paint, trim
or replacing it altogether can
really change the look of your
home. Wayne-Dalton.com has
a custom design kit for its
9700 garage door that can
make up to 54 different
design combinations.


Hardscaping. A new walk-
way can improve the looks at
your home. In particular, a
curved walkway versus a
straight one really changes the
look of your home from the
curb. It's also creates a more
welcoming look for the exteri-
or. Adding brick trim, a pat-
tern or some kind of feature
also brings up the appearance
a notch:
Landscaping. Few improve-
ments to a home have as
much impact as landscaping.
Take a photo of your home
from the street to the nursery


pp9 ,


and ask for advice on what
plants to purchase and where
to plant them. Most nursery
professionals will be happy to
help you make the right selec-
tions for your home and the
area.
Front and center. The front
door to your home says a lot
about your home. If yours is
older or tired-looking a spruc-
ing up with some new paint
and even door hardware can
make a big difference in its
appearance. Try painting your
door a contrasting color to
really make it stand out.


Light up. Call more atten-
tion to your home by lighting
the exterior. Lighting kits can
be found very inexpensively
at home centers and they're a
cinch to wire. Or, hire a pro-
fessional. Either way, exterior
lighting makes every house
look great.
Get cozy. Whether you add
a split-rail fence to use as a
backdrop for a planting bed, a
small stone nook for a cafe
set, or a pair of pretty
planters, cozying up your
home creates a welcoming
affect that attracts admirers


and creates a warm reception
for visitors.

WRINKLES BEGONE If you
leave your clothes in the dryer
too long, they'll come out all
wrinkled. However, everyone
forgets once in a while. If you
do, put the clothes back in the
dryer with some damp -towels
and dry again on medium heat
for a few minutes. It'll solve
the problem. Jan K.

EXPRESSION OF GRATI-
TUDE My toddler is too
young to write thank-you
notes. However, I want him to


learn the importance of doing
so. Whenever the occasion
arises where he's gotten gifts, I
hand him some blank note
cards, in which I've already
written a thank you, and let.
him add a little picture in cray-
on. When he gets older, he'll
be able to write his own, and


the habit will already be
ingrained. Lynda C.

MINI TOUCH-UPS I use
cotton swabs to touch up small
stains or marks on the walls
with paint; This way, I'm not
wasting paint, and I don't have
any brushes to clean. It's a lot


less messy. Betty P.
GREASE SPOT MAGIC To
remove oil or grease spots, first
pour a little cola or white vine-

through the grease..Then you
can wipe it up without smear-

it spilled. Camille D.
