region of Peru. After the quake,
Ingrid McCawley, whose moth-

everyone she knew to drop off
donations at either Jacksonville
Beach Pediatric Care Center on
3rd Street or Shepherd of the

The results were evident
Thursday, well in advance of an
established 5 p.m. deadline. Dr.
Norberto Benitez of the pedi-

amazement at how much had
been collected in just a couple
"My mom's been in this
country for 40-some years, was
born in Lima, Peru. We have a
lot of family still there,"
McCawley said at the pediatric
care center. "In the 1970s she
arranged a clothing drive for a
devastating earthquake that
claimed the lives of a number of
our family members. Just trying
to honor our family, I wanted to
make sure we were able to do
the same things for the victims
Members of the Peruvian
Association in Jacksonville

bags upon bags and boxes filled
with donated items. A truck was
to take the donations to Miami,
where a Peruvian Air Force

The Leader's Opinion
Fees should not
Government takes a risk every time it enacts a fee.
And with the current rash to curb property taxes, more
and more governmental bodies are looking to scratch
their fiscal itches with more and more fees.
In St. Johns County, the latest fee proposal is to enact
a $78 annual stormwater fee to be levied on residents. A
recent study concluded that abundant rainfall and rapid
development cause capacity problems for existing
stormwater management systems.
The rainfall in Florida is nothing new and the county
government has permitted every bit of the development,
collecting hefty taxes all the while on the new develop-
ment. The additional tax revenues have far exceeded the

taken as the county's due.
In Jacksonville, where the county government has
enjoyed the same surge in tax revenues as the tax base
boomed, the new limits on taxation now have the coun-

The federal government does not consider a fee to be
tax-deductible but property taxes are deductible. Other
than that distinction, there is really little difference
between a fee and tax both are levied by the govern-
ment and come out of the citizen's pocketbook.
It's worth remembering that the recent furor over
mounting property tax bills prompted the legislature to
take action in the last legislative session.
That furor was spawned by a Save Our Homes amend-
ment that capped the taxable value of homesteaded
property. That inherently unfair amendment, while well
intentioned, proved to have unintended consequences,
notably slowing the state's real estate market and
prompting state-mandates on local taxes.
If governments attempt to skirt the public's collective
will by adopting a flurry of fees to make up for lower tax
collections, their actions could also lead-to unintended

Not sure how to observe
Women's Equality Day
had a bad feeling as soon as
I got onto the boat. It was a
small rented sailboat that
was piloted by two women.
The women had taken a few
sailing lessons and wanted to
try out their nautical prowess
on the Potomac River. I and
two other fellows went along
for the ride.
And what a ride it was.
Shortly after we boarded, one of
the women, a lawyer, began lec-
turing us on sailing techniques.
She told us about the jib, the
small sail up front, and how to
move it from one side to anoth-
er by releasing one jib rope and
pulling the other.
She explained what it meant
to "tack," or shift the sails from
one side to another to catch the
wind and change direction. She
lectured us with a seriousness

I got to thinking about this
epispde after reading about
Women's Equality Day, to be'
celebrated Aug. 26. Congress
established it in 1971 to spot-
light women's efforts at
achieving equality. It is cele-
brated every Aug. 26 because
that's the day women won the
right to vote back in 1920.
Things sure have changed
It used to be that women
were held back-in this country.
They had few options but to
marry and become mothers,
and they were then expected
to stay home while the men
went off to run the country.
Today, the potential of
women has been unleashed
and we're all better off.
Women are excelling in every
profession. More women than
men are enrolling in college
and more are earning
advanced degrees. Nearly 40
percent of all businesses in
America are owned by women.
It's true that women have
not yet achieved parity at the
top levels of corporate

women earn 75 percent of
what men do, though doesn't

Floridians say house values stable
Horidians are optimistic
about housing prices despite
the gloom pervading much of
the real estate industry, a
University of Florida survey
finds. Only 5 percent of 287
Florida homeowners said they
think their house values will
fall during the next five years,
according to the survey,
which was conducted in
July by UF's Bureau of
Economic and Business
Research. Eighty-two percent
expected the value of their
houses to rise, and 13 percent
said they would remain the
same. The median respondent
expected a gain of 18 percent,
or a little more than 3 percent
UF economists said they
were not surprised by the
results. "The last time hous-
ing prices fell and didn't
recover within five years was
during the Great Depression,"
Hamilton, a UF economics
professor and chairman of the
economics department. "Most
of the problem in Florida
right now is that we've had a
huge amount of building and
lots of speculative buying,
and things are now catching
Although there is a large
inventory of' condominiums
for sale statewide, many of
these units are likely to be
sold and occupied within the
next few years, he said.
Florida's draw as a retirement
destination as the baby
boomers age is another factor
that bodes well for the state,
Denslow, a UF economics
professor who led the
research. "As these baby
boomers flood into Florida,
they will be -pushing housing
prices up," he said.
The questions were asked as
part of the bureau's monthly
consumer confidence tele-
phone survey. The responses
about housing price expecta-
tions did not vary significant-
ly by age, race, gender, region
within the state or current
house value, Denslow said.
"This surprised me a little
bit because we expect people
to be more pessimistic where
there is a huge glut on the
market such as the Tampa Bay
or the Orlando area," he said.
"The people who do dis-
tressed house sales, the web
sites where they say they'll
buy your house for only 80
percent of its value, they love
Orlando right now."
The housing market is in a
period of correction after the
dramatic appreciation in real
estate values nationally and
particularly in Florida since
2000, Denslow said. In most
Florida markets the median
price of existing homes is
declining, he said.
"Although these declines
are temporary, there will be at
least some Florida markets
where house price apprecia-
tion will be very low over the
next five years," he said. "My
guess would be that you'll see
low house price appreciation
in the Tampa Bay, Orlando
and Miami area simply
because of the number of
existing units on the market."
In contrast, large price
reductions are unlikely in
Gainesville or Tallahassee
where the housing boom has
not been nearly as dramatic,
Denslow said. "And similarly,
I don't think that
Jacksonville is going to be
hurt as badly as Fort Myers or
Naples or the Fort Pierce
area," he said.

Come Hear about the NEW BH-50
In cooperation with the St. Johns County Commission and other Beaches
community leaders, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority proudly
announces the creation of a new special express bus service to Ponte Vedra
Beach. This new route, BH-50, was developed in response to requests from
local businesses in an effort to create better access to employment
Initially, the BH-50 will make two trips in the morning and two trips in the after-
noon. The bus will run non-stop from the Gateway Mall to the FCCJ/Rosa
Parks Station in Downtown Jacksonville. From Downtown, the bus will run
express along 1-95 to J.Turner Butler Boulevard where it will make one stop at
the St. Johns Town Center before continuing on to the South Beach Shopping
Center at JTB and SR A1A. The BH-50 will then make stops south along SR
A1A until it reaches Sawgrass Village. On its return, the BH-50 will reverse the
route, making stops along A1A, the run non-stop between the beaches, the
St. Johns Town Center, Downtown and Gateway.
This new service is being funded by a grant from the Florida Department of
Transportation. The public is invited to come hear more about this exciting

Fellowship Hall dedication ceremony
by KATHY NICOLETTI
A Kirking of the Tartans held at
Community Presbyterian Church last
Sunday was held at the end of a morn-
ing that began with the dedication cer-
emony for the church's new Fellowship
Rev. Gabe Goodman began the bless-
ing of the tartans with the prayer,
"Today we invoke God's blessing not
only upon the clans of Scotland.......Let
us raise the banner of Christ's cross in
benediction to everyone, for each is pre-
cious to the Creator."
The Kirking of the Tartans originated
in the United States. It was started in
the 1940's by Dr. Peter Marshall, a
Presbyterian minister and native of
Scotland, who served as Chaplain for
the United States Senate, said Doug
Speed, Sr. who organized Sunday's
Speed is a member of both
Community Presbyterian and the
Scottish heritage organization, the
Jacksonville St. Andrew's Society.
"St. Andrew is the patron saint of
Scotland.... and the Presbyterian Church
was founded in Scotland," he said.
St. Andrew's Society banners repre-
senting 70 Scottish clans were at
Sunday's Kirking, either on display in
the sanctuary or carried into the
church during the procession, said

COULD YOUR CHILD BE AT RISK?
Your child may have 20/20 eyesight
but 010 vision. The difference is critical.
I. :Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see.
Vision is the ability to identify, interpret.
comprehend, and act on what is seen.
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most eye care professionals
measure eyesight. They do not include
Sthe kinds of testing that can find visually

& Senators set for Friday's Kickoff Classic
T ming is everything in
his world and it seems
The hotel/casino conglom-
erate has announced plans to
build a 20,000-seat arena in
Las Vegas in hopes of luring
an NBA or NHL team.
Yes, that would be the same
NBA currently reeling from a
betting scandal involving a
referee who pled guilty last
week to fixing games. Tim
Donaghy has also indicated
he's ready to blow the whistle
on other refs involved in gam-
Also last week, former NHL
star and Phoenix Coyotes
assistant coach Rick Tocchet
was sentenced on charges of
promoting gambling stem-
ming from a 2005 federal
"Operation Slap Shot" that
uncovered a massive betting
ring involving many in the *
hockey world including play-
ers, coaches and an owner.
And now we're dealing with
Atlanta Falcons quarterback
Michael Vick. While most of
the headlines have centered'
on charges of cruelty to ani-
mals in his dogfighting case,
the NFL is focusing on the
gambling portion of Vick's
enterprise in determining
what sort of punishment it
will mete out. Make no mis-
take, it's a very serious issue to
the league and could spell a
permanent end to Vick's NFL
So, in the midst of all those
feel-good sports stories, why
shouldn't Harrah's try to lure a
pro team to Sin City? There's
no possibility of players,
coaches or officials being cor-
rupted in the Nevada desert.
Degenerate gamblers, low-level
gangsters and desperately-
addicted, shadowy hustlers
don't flock to the mecca of
ostentatious excess, do they?
NBA Commissioner David
Stem, who looked like he'd
just eaten some bad shellfish
at the press conference
announcing Donaghy's indict-
ment, must be salivating at
the prospect of placing a fran-
chise in Vegas. After all, last
year's All-Star game there was
a huge success with only 362
people arrested in scattered
fights, shootings and partying
along the Strip that weekend.
"We' continue to have pro-
ductive conversations with
potential owners and are opti-
mistic that either basketball or
hockey, or both, will be
played in Las Vegas when the
venue opens," said Timothy
Leiweke, an executive of AEG,
the company partnering with
SHarrah's on the arena deal.
Because legalized sports bet-
ting is a staple of Las Vegas
casinos, major sports have
steered clear of the city for.
years. Stem, NHL Commissio-
ner Gary Bettman (yes, that's
really his last name) NFL chief
Roger Goodell and major
league baseball's Bud Selig all
know that sports in this coun-
try have to maintain at least
the appearance of being legiti-
While the Donaghy and
Tocchet cases prove that
sports can be corrupted in any
city and on a variety of levels,
there's no reason for a league
to play with fire and locate a
franchise smack dab in the
middle of casinos and gaming.
The temptation is too great
there are already countless
reports of pro ballplayers jet-
ting to Vegas and gambling
huge sums of money on their
days off and human nature
is too flawed to expect any-
thing but disaster if a team
sets up shop in Sin City.
With a little more than three
weeks of practice under its
belt, the Fletcher High football
team will see live action
against Wolfson High Friday
night in the preseason Kickoff
Expect starters to play the
first half, with second-stringers
and jayvee players getting reps
in the third and fourth quar-
For fans, it will be a good
opportunity to witness the
Senators' retooled offense
which is projected to include
the spread formation at least
half the time. Offensive coor-
dinator Ricky Medlock will uti-
lize a two-quarterback system,
with senior Matt Billman tak-
ing the role of classic pocket
passer and junior Darious
Campbell running the option.
Fletcher head coach Joe
Reynolds has said the flexibili-
ty of a two-QB scheme will
cause headaches for opposing
defenses trying to game-plan
for the Senators this fall.
As it has for many years,
Fletcher will also rely on a
potent rushing attack. Junior
tailback Deschion Baskerville
(878 yards on the ground last
season) is quick enough to get
to the comer and elusive
enough to make linebackers

with breakaway speed,
Baskerville is a good bet to
reach 1,000 yards rushing this
season if he can remain
In preseason practices and
team scrimmages, senior Tony
Carswell demonstrated his
mettle as a punishing inside
runner. Carswell is big, fast
and tough to bring down.
Junior receiver Lamar
Scruggs (659 receiving yards in
2006) is also poised for anoth-
er breakout season in the
Senators' new scheme. With
his speed, size (6-foot-4) and
athleticism, Scruggs is not only
a deep threat in the passing
game, but he'll also get the
ball on reverses.
Defensively, Fletcher doesn't
have a great deal of size and
will instead rely upon getting

Fletcher volleyball is reloaded for season
By DAVID ROSENBLUM
The last time Fletcher High
School's first-year volleyball
coach Janice Wish was a part of
the Senators varsity volleyball
squad, the team finished run-
ner-up in the state.
That was in 1992, 10 years
after FHS won its first and only
state title as a volleyball team.
But the Senators have set
goals for the coming season ,
that include making it to the
state tournament and possibly
bringing the school's volleyball
program back to being among
the county's strongest again.
"This used to be a real power-
house here at Fletcher," Wish
said. "The girls really want to
make this a top program again.
They're working hard to make
this a strong volleyball pro-

Causes of Lou Gehrig's Disease still a mystery
Q question: Dr. Smith,
what is Lou Gehrig's
Answer: In 1921, Lou
Gehrig went to Columbia
University on a football
scholarship. In the summers
however, he played semi-pro-
tessional baseball under a
fake name, to avoid losing
his football scholarship. He
was caught however and was
banned for the rest of his
During Gehrig's sophomore
season, he also played base-
ball for Columbia and was
discovered by a Yankees'
scout, and signed to a con-
tract. Once he took the field
as a Yankee in 1925, he never
left the field for 13 consecu-
tive seasons. His consecutive
games streak of 2,130 stood'
for years, until it was broken
by Cal Ripken, Jr. in 1995.
In 1938, Gehrig's batting
average slipped below .300
for the first time in his career,
and it was obvious to those
around him that something
was wrong. Not only did he
lack speed with his bat, he
also lacked his typical power.
Gehrig was examined by
doctors at the Mayo Clinic
and diagnosed with a neuro-
logical disorder that we today
refer to as Lou Gehrig's dis-
He would never play again.
The Yankees would later
honor the player known as
"The Iron Horse" by having a
special day of recognition for
him before a game in 1939. It
was at that moment the dis-
ease reached national promi-
nence when Gehrig, ravaged
by the illness, referred to
himself as "the luckiest man
on the face of the Earth," in

The competitors and friends
are representing the North
Florida district in the legends
division [ages 55-64] and will
be gunning after North
Carolina locals David Sledge
and Bill Roach.
"Last year the Carolina boys
gave us a hard time but we're
going up loaded this year;
we've been going on surf trips,
working out and getting ready
for it," said Sapp, 59, who won
the ESA regional shortboard
legends division in New
Smyrna Beach, Fla. in May.
"Me and Ray are rivals

division but we're friends so

to Sapp at regionals and fin-
ished fourth at Hatteras last

waves. Sapp recently returned

different spots. I was in
Surfside and we used to surf
18th Avenue North. There
used to be an old bar back
there on the beach and then

Sapp started surfing ESA in
the late 1970s and stopped for
several years while his three

were young. But his boys,

Pimentel and his friend
Scott Whorthly of Atlantic
Beach flew in to surf in
Guatemala two weeks ago but
after two days with no waves,
they rented a truck and drove
to surf in El Salvador.
"We had the session of our
lives down there," Pimentel
said. "Good swells, good food
and the people were super
nice. It was a great trip."
Pimentel grew up surfing in
Virginia Beach, VA before
moving to Jacksonville Beach
in 1973. He had some friends
from Virginia who had moved
to the area, including former
school friend, Wayne
Seymour, who was affiliated
with the old Hixon's Surf
Shop. Pimentel was a member
of Hixon's surf team and
surfed in the ESA as a hobby.
Pimentel and his wife,
Peyton, lived in Southern
California for about four years
before returning to
Jacksonville Beach to raise
their family. Pimentel works
as a roofing contractor and
lives in South Jacksonville
Beach. He has four daughters,

It's called 'Eye of the
Dolphin." It's nothing new in
terms of plot or character. But
sometimes, in a movie with a
familiar destination, the nicest
surprise is how it gets there.
The movie is. about Alyssa
(Carly Schroeder, who played
Hilary Duff's nemesis on
"Lizzy McGuire"). She's a
teenager whose divorcee mom
died more than a year before,
and who has since used that as
an excuse to become a slacker.
Alyssa's grandmother ("The
Graduate's" Katherine Rossf)
has tried to take over from her
late daughter, but Alyssa has
become too much of a hand-
ful. So she takes Alyssa to the
Bahamas to meet James
(Adrian Dunbar), the father,

James is a marine biologist
working on dolphin research,
and he's in no mood to
become Instant Daddy.

and a guy who relates better to
fish than to his kid. Add to
that the beautiful but overused
Bahama setting. If these plot
elements were a jigsaw puzzle,

in 10 minutes.

leisurely pacing. But be pleas-

It's the second film remake

by John Waters, the original
perhaps best-known for its
star, Divine. This version is
faithful, at least in its social
implications, to the original.

lights people's differences.
Thin or fat, white or black,
this PG-13 movie is easy to
enjoy as long as one doesn't
focus on its serious aspects.
"Hairspray" centers around a
Ricki Lake-type character
(who just happened to be in
the original production)
named Nikki Blonsky. Her
dream is to dance on
Baltimore's 1960s version of
Blonsky, a newcomer with.
few if any professional cred-
its, does a credible job as
both songstress and actress.
Almost the entire flick
revolves around the Great
Neck, N.Y., newcomer, but
be warned:If obesity and
integration are sore points,
pass up "Hairspray."
Blonsky, who lives with
Mom (John Travolta in drag
and a fat suit) and Dad (an
unlikely choice in perennial
bad guy Christopher
Walken) just can't under-
stand why her dream of

being a dancer isn't coming
true. One obstacle is
Michelle Pfeiffer, the manag-
er of the station that carries
Blonsky's dream show. She's
racist and has her heart set
on her daughter becoming
the show's "dancing queen."
Pfeiffer can hardly stomach
the show's once-weekly
"Negro Day," where Queen
Latifah spotlights rhythm
Though the plot isn't this
production's strongest point,
racial prejudice, integration
and exclusion of the obese
due to their physical "differ-
ence" are nicely woven.
Though none of "Hairspray's"
songs are memorable, its

Enjoy some white wines you haven't tried before
See if this sounds familiar.
You can't decide whether
to open that 1995 Bordeaux
you've been saving or one of
the just-released Joseph
Phelps Insignia you snagged
while shopping the other
day. That's when the chef of
the house announces that it's
too hot to cook over a stove
and that you're having a cold
pasta salad tonight. And,
tomorrow it's your turn to
grill your special Cajun
Well, Mabel, the Bordeaux
isn't going to work. Suck it
up it's going to be another
white wine night.
Sound familiar? Join the
legion of wine enthusiasts so
badly in need of a red-wine
fix in the dead of summer
that they'll bribe the house
chef to cook beef. One of us
grilled steaks for friends last
week and tried to enjoy cel-
lar cabernets while wiping
sweat off our brows. It's
pathetic behavior, isn't it?
There will be plenty of
cold days to catch up with
your cabernet sauvignons.
Enjoy some white wines you
haven't tried before.
This week we will tempt
you with some different
grape varieties that fall under
the radar because they aren't
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'
chardonnay or sauvignon
blanc. Finding these wines
has been a lot of fun but also
educational. Even if you
can't find a particular pro-
ducer, just ask for the grape
variety and enjoy.
Michel Torino Don David
Reserve Torrontes 2006
($16). Torrontes grown in
Argentina (it's also grown in
Spain) has exotic fruit flavors
and an explosive nose not
unlike that found in gewurz-
traminer or muscat. This one
from grapes grown 5,500 feet
above sea level has orange
and lychee nut aromas fol-
lowed by spirited grapefruit
and peach flavors. Another
good version of the grape is
the Trapiche Torrontes 2006
($12) and has mouth-pucker-
ing flavors, a floral and citrus
nose and an off-dry finish.
These wines would be great
with shrimp, scallops or just
about any seafood.
Philippe Portier Quincy
2006 ($17). Made from
sauvignon blanc grown in
the Loire Valley, this Robert
Kacher Selection is more
opulent than most from this
region of France. According
to Mr. Kacher, that's because
the winemaker uses more
skin contact to extract
greater flavor. It works.
Citrus and green apple notes
with crisp acidity to make it
a nice match to any seafood
or just as an aperitif.
Gini Soave 2006 ($18). We
chose this wine for a large
group dining at a restaurant
and everyone was delighted
enough to order a couple
more bottles for dinner. It is
an outstanding wine with
more definition than most
soaves. Made entirely from
the indigenous garganega
grape, it has pure expression
of fruit, honey and peach
notes with a touch of
almonds and good acidity.
Michel Redde Sancerre
Les Tuillieres 2004 ($24).
We like the steely character
of a good sancerre and this
version doesn't disappoint. A
good French wine to serve
alongside shellfish, it has cit-
rus and herbal notes with
Gruner Veltliner 2004 ($16).
Gruner veltliner is one of the
noble grapes of Austria and
this version is sure to delight
you. Crisp acidity, citrus and
pear notes. Very floral in the
nose and a pleasure to sip or
serve alongside any sauce
with citrus flavors.
Klassik 2006 ($23). Big aro-
mas of orange blossoms and
passion fruit explode from
the glass. Flavors in this
Austrian wine include apri-
cot, toast and allspice. Silky
texture and a delicious sip-
Catina del Taburno Greco
2006 ($20). We have always
been fond of
Masterbernadino's Greco di
Tufo, but this simple greco
made in the same region of
Italy's Campania region is a
great substitute. Intense aro-
mas and flavors of pear and
apple with a hint.of lime,
good balance and fresh acidi-
ty. Match with pasta, fish

Pets, like kids, benefit from schooling
With the school year begin-
ning this week in Duval and St.
Johns counties, pet owners are
reminded that dogs benefit
from training, too.
Petfinder.com, the largest
online database of adoptable
pets, encourages owners to edu-
cate their pets.
"Pet owners who know how
to communicate with their dogs
are more likely to keep them,"
said Betsy Saul, cofounder of
Dogs who misbehave some-
times end up in shelters, she
said. "Plus, the bond created
while training helps ensure a
happy family," she said.
To select a trainer, Kellyann
Conway, director of pet behav-
ior for Animal Planet Pet Video,
suggests observing a class before
The dogs and the people
should be enjoying the class,
she said. Make sure that the
venue is secure and clean and
that praise and rewards are used,
never physical punishment
such as hitting or jerking the
"A good trainer will also
ensure that your pet's health is
protected," Conway said,
adding that trainers should
require a health certificate or
proof of vaccinations.
As little as five minutes twice
a day could be enough to train
your pet at home, she said.
The reward is a responsive pet
that doesn't jump on guests,
doesn't destroy your house
when left alone and, most
important of all, comes when
Puppies have different feed-
ing habits than older dogs. A
puppy needs twice as much
protein and 50% more calories
per pound of body weight
daily in order to meet its
growth requirements accord-
ing to www.dogfacts.org. A
rapid change in a puppy's diet
may cause gastrointestinal
upsets. Puppies must feed 4
times daily until the age of 3
months, 3 times daily until 6
months and twice daily for the
rest of its life.
Older dogs' feeding habits
are different in a couple of
ways. The average size dog
requires about 30 calories per
pound of body weight per day.
Interestingly, larger breeds
need only 20 calories per
pound of weight, while small-
er breeds need about 40 calo-
ries per pound of body weight.
A dog's diet should consist of
balanced proportions of pro-
teins, carbohydrates, fats and,
of course water.
A dog can go days without
food and lose 30%-40% of it's
body weight without dying,
but a 10%-15% water loss
could .be fatal. All-meat diets
are not recommended for dogs
due to the lack of calcium and
iron found in meat. Diet sup-
plements should be avoided.
Human foods that can be fatal
to dogs include moldy cheese,
onions, and chocolate. Wild-
living domestic dogs will eat a
variety of foods including ani-
mals and fruits. Their diet
becomes similar to that of
their wild ancestors, gray
A healthy, happy cat requires a diet fit to his unique taste
Domestic cats can't be adapt-
ed to an unsupplemented veg-
etarian diet because they can't
synthesize several nutrients
they need and that are absent
or rare in plant food according
to www.catfacts.org. This
applies mainly to taurine, vita-
min A (cats cannot convert the
pro-vitamin A that is abundant
in plants to vitamin A proper)
and to certain fattyacids. The
absence of taurine causes the
cat's retina to slowly degener-.
ate, causing eye problems and
eventual irreversible blindness.
This condition is called central
retinal degeneration. Cow's
milk is a poor source of taurine
and adult cats are generally lac-
those intolerant. Lactose-free
milk is perfectly safe, but still
not a substitute for meat. This
contrasts with domesticated
dogs, who commonly are fed a
mixture of meat and vegetable
products and can be adapted to
diets (though supplementation
may be better for dogs too).
However, the majority of-
brand-name cat foods are pri-
marily grain based, often con-
taining large amounts of corn
or rice and supplemented with
meats and minerals and vita-

the vomeronasal, or
Jacobson's, organ becomes sen-
sitized to a specific food, 'at
which point the cat will reject
any food that doesn't fit the
pattern it is expecting.
Additionally, cats have been
known to develop a fondness
for "people food" such as chick-
en, French fries, pizza, bread,
ice cream, carrot juice, olives,
tomato soup, and carnitas bur-
ritos, as well as cat diet exotica
such as corn kernels and diced
cantaloupe. But many "people

Ten Tips on keeping a happy toolbox
My husband keeps using my
tools and doesn't put them
back. I appreciate that he's try-
ing to help, but it's really
starting to get to me. What ,
can I do to let hfid know TI ,
appreciate the help but not
We feel your pain! If you're
an avid do-it-yourselfer there's
nothing more annoying than
not being able to find your
favorite tool when you need
it. Or, even worse, to discover
your favorite tool is broken or
missing because someone who
used it didn't have the cour-
tesy to treat it with the care
and respect that your personal
property deserves! Your
favorite cordless drill is miss-
ing its battery, your ratcheting
screwdriver is missing its bits,
your hammer is covered in
spackle and paint, or your
stud finder is just plain gone!
Needless to say, these issues
can quickly become a major
sore spot for couples, room-
mates, friends and family
members. So we asked our
community of fellow Janes to
provide us with a few tips to
avoid 'trouble in the toolbox.'
1) His and Hers Harmony -
The first breakthrough is to
agree on having two sets of
tools. We Jafies get attached to
our tools and loaning them
out even to a loved one -
can cause unnecessary anxiety.
This is especially true for small
tools that fit your hands well.
Plus, if a tool is hard to
replace it's a prime candidate
for having two sets.
2) Label What's Yours If
you and your roommate have
the exact same drill take a
moment to label your respec-
Tip number 1: Try having his-
HEIDI BAKER and
tive tools. The easiest and
most permanent way to
accomplish this without
affecting the performance of
the tool is to use the etching
attachment of a rotary tool
and literally write your name
or initials in the handles of all
of your power and hand tools.
Ink will often wear off and
stick-on labels can not only be
pulled off but will eventually
lose its adhesiveness and fall
off on its own.
3) Lock Box It may seem
a bit extreme at first but con-
sider placing your tools in sep-
arate tool boxes or cabinets.
Tough sell? Find an analogy
around the house he'll relate
to. Do you already have his
and hers computers, sports
equipment or hobby supplies?
Workshop tools are no differ-
ent; you work differently and
therefore you probably need
your own collections. Having
your own toolbox also means
you can organize things to
reflect how you work. A lock
on any toolbox is-a good gen-
eral practice since tools are
easy targets for thieves.
'Communal' Tools Sit down
with your spouse, roommate
or whomever and go over
"house tools" and tools you
intend to keep to yourself or
those that at least need a per-
mission from you before
using. Determine a place to
keep these tools so there's
never any confusion or mis-
5) Think Pink Many of
our members wrote in that
they were tired of their hus-
bands using the tools that
they bought for themselves
and then claiming then as
their own. They bought tools
specifically made for women.
Consider tools with flowery or
pink handles, but only if you
find high-quality pieces. Many
of our members purchased
pink tools because their
spouse would've been embar-
rassed using them but ulti-
mately they were disappointed
with their quality.
6) Tool Zones If you're
lucky enough to have a garage
establish which area belongs
to you and which area belongs
to your spouse, roommate,
etc. Make it clear that neither
o9tu .yil borrow each,.
Soter's tools without the OK'
of the tool's owner. This
means you must follow the
rules as well! It doesn't matter
that you needed his router for
'just a second,' you must get
permission first or don't
expect it in return.
7) Checkout Sheet If you
feel that restricting the use of
your tools is too harsh you
might consider using a check-
out sheet. Whoever borrows
your tools must write down
what they took, when they
took it, and when they plan
on returning it. And, they
must return the tool in its
original condition or guaran-
tee beforehand that they will
replace it should they break it
or lose it.
8) Share and Share Alike -
It may be that the two of you
just decide to share all of the
tools together. Or maybe
you've each got your own but
you decide to buy one or two
big-ticket tools together. Either
way can work but you must
determine in advance what
the parameters for using the
9) Care and Feeding If
you have different approaches
to quality, maintenance, or
how to use tools, you're proba-
bly candidates for having your
own toolboxes. It doesn't
make one of you right and the
other wrong, just different.
Life is too short to argue.over
tools. And because tool quality
has come up in recent years as
prices have come down it's
more affordable than ever for
you each to have essential
tools you can call your own.
10) Set a Good Example -
When you borrow tools from
someone else (and we all need
to from time to time), be sure
to return the todl promptly
and make sure it's clean and
in good condition. For exam-
ple, if you broke or dulled a
hacksaw blade make sure to
include a package of new ones
when you return the saw. If
there's an accessory that'd be
nice to have, consider giving
it as a gift when you return
the tool. The golden rule is
never truer than when bor-
rowing tools: treat others'
tools as you'd like yours treat-

How to get men to clean the house
Getting a man to do
housework is not
always easy. My opin-
ion is that if both people work
full-time jobs, both should
divide household chores even-
ly because, after all, a house
doesn't have a woman's face
painted on it. That means, a
home and the work that goes
with it, should be a shared
housework is rarely divided
It's changing though. After
circling the globe, and meet-
ing men from around the
world, I do believe that
by KATE WORTH
ORGANIZER I mount
hooks inside my closet doors. I
then hang belts, purses, neck-
laces, ties, etc., on them. This
keeps everything organized.
American men are the best
men on the planet. Yep, in
my opinion, American guys
are the big Kahunas, the No. 1
of the male species on the
globe. That being said, many
don't pull their fair share of
the housework load.
Sure, they'll insist that they
take care of the yard, but not
every single day. Housework
is an everyday affair. From
laundry to meal preparation
and clean-up, housework is
there, day in and day out. So
what does it take to get a man
to pitch in and help with the
housework? Make housework
appealing to a man. If
women put cleaning the
house on fnanly terms,
women are more likely to get
their hubbies excited about
cleaning. Heck, put house-
work on a man's terms and
women might find housework
is more appealing to them,
It's all about the tools
Men love tools. They want
cleaning tools that work well.
Women will tolerate inferior
performance and almost take
pleasure in how long they can
endure working with some-
thing that gives-them substan-
dard results. Give a man the
right tools to clean with and

It's also no secret that men
are visually-oriented. That's
why the Dyson vacuum could
only have been invented by a
man. No doubt, as James
Dyson says, he was frustrated
because his vacuum lost suc-
tion. But I bet what he was
really thinking was, "Where's
the dirt? I want to see some
dirt!" Thus, the Dyson vacu-
um was invented, enabling
one to actually see the dirt
and filth vacuumed up. My
husband can't get enough of
our Dyson and says it's the
best investment we've made
for the house in a long time.
We fight over who gets to do
the indoor mowing now.
What have we learned
about housekeeping from
men? It takes the right tools.
Invest in good ones and using
good tools makes the job bet-
ter and maintains your inter-
est in doing the job to begin ,
with. We also learned that it
pays to look at dirt. Having
the tools that are going to
have you seeing dirty, and
plenty of it, will keep you
interested in chasing down
dust bunnies and it may
even encourage your man to

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