The Jacksonville City
Council's decision Tuesday to
implement garbage and
stormwater fees will not
impact Beaches residents,
who already pay those fees to
their respective Beach city
halls.
But, Jacksonville City
Council has proposed a
January referendum to allow
-voters to replace
Jacksonville's new fees with a
half cent increase in the
county sales tax.
The sales tax increase,
unlike the fees, would be
levied countywide, council
officials said.
Jacksonville Councilor Ray
Holt said he wants voters to
choose if they want a sales
tax increase to replace
Jacksonville-based fee
increases. He said he has few
details on the referendum,
but is meeting with attorneys
Monday to begin work on the
proposal.
Holt said he wants input
from others, especially Art
Graham, the Beaches repre-
sentative.
He explained it will affect


the Beaches since residents
already pay municipal fees
for garbage and stormwater
- and have for many years.
Graham said that he does
not know any more details
about the proposed referen-
dum other than what was
mentioned at Tuesday's city
council meeting.
The state allows a half cent
sales tax increase without its
approval, Holt said.
The new fees were levied to
increase revenues for
Jacksonville, which had to
reduce its tax rate pursuant to
a state mandate.

BRINGING BACK A TRADITION

For the first time in years, the Senator Snarl at Fletcher High School featured a bonfire after the
pep rally Thursday night. Plenty of rainfall recently made the bonfire possible. The rally began in
the school gymnasium with students dressing up as characters from the musical "Grease" which
is providing the theme for this year's homecoming. Fletcher plays Stanton at 7 p.m. tonight at
Jack Taylor Stadium. The homecoming court will be crowned at halftime.

Jaguar presents 'What Moves You' for Mayport Middle


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver
Ernest Wilford told Mayport Middle
School students this week that he
was forbidden to play sports as a
child.
He was visiting the school to kick
off "What Moves You", a fitness
learning program sponsored by the
National Football League to encour-
age children to enjoy physical activi-
ty.
"1 want to get kids motivated to go
out, play and get active in the com-
nmunity, have fun with life," said
Wilford, who holds two degrees from
Virginia Tech and is in his fourth year
with the Jags. "We get so caught up in
playing video games or watching TV."
Wilford told students it's OK for
kids to be in front of their television
sets when the Jaguars are beating
Denver, as they did Sunday.
"Or be out there at the games," he
added. "It's important to us."
Assistant principal Kristin Archon
and teacher Kendra Hope-Moore are
coordinating the program at the
school, while Nyree Bowen is point
man for the Jaguars. Bowen and
Wilford were joined at the school this
week by Roar cheerleaders Kena
Tambini and Kelsey Hoover.
"'What Moves You' is a program to
engage kids," said Bowen,
"Specifically we're working with sixth
graders to be physically active. I don't
know if kids know what it's like any-
more to be outside, running around
with friends, riding their bike. This
program is to help get them excited
about physical activity."
Bowen said the program has an in-
school curriculum that the NFL,
American Heart Association and
teachers combined to create. The cur-
riculum is based on subjects students


take and incor-
porates physical
activities to help "
them learn.
Sixty minutes of
activities a day
is the program's
target.
Wilford
shared some of
his life's experi-
ences with the
middle school
students.
"I had to face
adversity as a i
very young
kid," said the
Jaguars receiver,
explaining he
was born with
club feet. His
feet were broken
and placed in
braces to help
him walk cor- Ernest Wilford, left,
rectly. The rem- Jaguars, fields a qu
edy worked.
"When I got
to middle school, I was one of the
fastest kids in the neighborhood," he
said.
Wilford said he worked hard to
become an athlete.
"I didn't sit in the house watching
TV. I was always out in the communi-
ty, running, playing basketball, play-
ing tag," he said. "I was busy and
loved doing it."
He told the youngsters Duck-Duck-
Goose was his favorite game because
"nobody could catch me."
After he was done speaking,
Wilford fielded questions, the first of
which came from Tyler Moxie.
"Was it hard for you when you first
started playing football?," Moxie
asked.
Wilford responded by saying, "My

father's a pastor, my mother's a mis-
sionary in the church. I was forbid-
den to play sports when I was young,
but still snuck away and wound up
winning the triple jump, high jump
and long jump at a state meet. As a
result, my picture was in the paper.
"Guess who reads the sports section
in Richmond, Va.? Both my mom and
dad. I got whuppings from each, but
they allowed me to play football as a
senior."
Wilford asked the youngsters,
"How many of you understand the
importance of an education?"
After virtually all hands went up,
he said, "You are our future. You are
our future athletes, you are our future
doctors. I look forward to watching
you take over this world and make it
a better place to live."


Jax city councilor hosting road

cleanup in Jax Beach Saturday


FROM STAFF
A Jacksonville City Councilor is
soliciting volunteers to participate
in a monthly cleanup event for a
Beaches road.
Beaches representative Art
Graham is hosting "Take Part with
Art," a monthly cleanup event to
beautify First Avenue N.orth
between Penman Road and Third
Street, starting Saturday at 10:30

Volunteers will meet at Gonzalez
Park in Jacksonville Beach at the
corner of 2nd Avenue North and
10th Street and will be provided


with gloves, bags and a "trash grab-
ber" tool, according to Graham's
office.
Graham said that approximately
15 to 20 volunteers have signed up
for Saturday's cleanup, but those
wishing to participate in future
events may register by calling 630-
1642.
He said the event is an effort to
get more people to sign up for the
Adopt-a-Road program, which

the council cut $75,000. from
"Clean it Up, Green it Up".

A second round trip to St.
Augustine was announced
Thursday, and Tuesday the
airline said it would begin
service between Portsmouth,
N.H., and St. Augustine. Both
are scheduled to begin Dec.
17.
"Since we began service to
St. Augustine in July, we have
been absolutely delighted at
the response from passengers,
and with our experience with
St. Augustine Airport," Bill
Diffenderffer, Skybus CEO,
said in a news release.
The second flight between
Columbus and St. Augustine
was added "to accommodate
the growing demand for serv-
ice to. the whole
Jacksonville/Daytona Beach
region."
The public is invited to the
dedication of the commercial
air terminal, scheduled 10
a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday.
Planned after a ribbon-cutting
ceremony are displays of old
aircraft such as open cockpit
by-wings, private planes, cor-
porate jets and helicopters.
To accommodate commer-
cial airline service, the airport
had to provide "a secured ter-
minal facility" that meets the
requirements of the FAA and
the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA), accord-
ing to Ed Wuellner, executive


director of the St. Augustine
Airport Authority.
Before commercial service
began in July, the airport had
no TSA requirement,
Wuellner said.
The cost of "federalizing"
the airport is borne by ticket
purchasers $2.50 per ticket
nationwide not St. Johns
County, he said.
The nearly 12,000-square-
foot terminal was built "in a
record 54 days" at a cost of
about $1.6 million, Wuellner
said in ari e-mail message.
The agreement between the
:'Airport Authority, and SkLbus
allows the airline to use the
terminal, which can be shared
if another airline wants to fly
to St. Augustine, Wuellner
said.
The revenue the county gets
from the Skybus service is
from fuel usage, parking, con-.
cession and rental car leases
and fees, he said. That is
expected to generate at least
$250,000, he said.

adopted its 2007-08 budget
Sept. 19.
The new millage rate of
0.1807 mills a 12 percent
reduction over the current
year's rate is expected to
generate about $4.5 million.
Leases will generate just
over $2 million. A state grant
of nearly $3 million plus
other revenue gives the
authority about $11.3 million
in revenue, according to a
budget summary.
Wuellner said although the
Airport Authority is not
adcively seeking service from
additional' commercial air-
lines, he "would be surprised
if that doesn't change over
the next year or so."
"It is likely that other air-
lines will recognize the mar-
ket that seems to be develop-
ing out of St. Johns County,"
he said.
The Airport Authority proj-
ects the airport will be self-
sustaining in the future, with
elimination of the property
tax in fiscal 2011, he said.

The Leader's Opinion



Many favorites



of Beach living

This issue of The Leader contains a special section on
Favorites at the Beaches, detailing reader's top picks in a vari-
ety of categories.
Whether it is a favorite eatery or another establishment,
the annual Favorites of the Beaches contest spotlights most
things commercial that locals enjoy most.
Assembling a comprehensive list of Beach Living Favorites
is difficult, however, as space and time do not permit inclu-
sion of everything.
As a community, bounded by the Intracoastal Waterway
and the ocean, our geographic distinctiveness is a big
favorite. Those boundaries create a real sense of community
and make it hard to mistake a barrier island as a Jacksonville
suburb.
Another favorite in our community is having independent
police departments in the three Beach cities. The size of the
departments makes them more responsive and better
equipped to provide high-quality public safety services. In
addition to providing comprehensive patrols, the local
departments provide a multitude of community services,
including working closely with area schools to provide edu-
cational programs for students.
Government close to home, with elected officials willing
to listen to their constituents, is also a favorite. Many of us
take for granted how easy it is to speak .on a particular zon-
ing issue or just share a concern. Only government this close
to home can be this responsive.
Big .favorites for local residents are the local schools.
Teachers vie for spots and the schools are so desirable that
screens had to be established to keep out student interlopers
willing to lie to secure a coveted classroom spot at a Beaches
school.
All of the above elements combine to make up our biggest
favorite of all -'our Beaches lifestyle. By dint of our living
here and choosing to call this area home, we have made it
clear that this community is our favorite.



Letters to the editor:


Consider cruise costs


To the editor:
As a lifelong resident of the
Beaches, I think everyone
needs to carefully consider the
benefits of moving
Jacksonville's Cruise Ship
Terminal to Mayport.
Knee-jerk reactions about
increased traffic are not needed
now. :Instead, we need careful
considerationn of the benefits of
such a move.
First, as every Atlantic Beach
resident knows, Mayport Road
is in need of a transformation.
A new cruise ship terminal in
Mayport would help transform
Mayport Road and the busi-
nesses located along it. In
short, Mayport Road would
enjoy a long awaited clean-up.
Second, a Mayport Cruise
Ship Terminal would be great
for businesses at the beach.
Hotels and restaurants
throughout the beach, not just
on Mayport Road, would bene-


fit from an influx of tourist
who arrive early or stay afte
their cruise. More tourists wil
bring more tax revenue, an(
that's a good thing.
Finally, I don't think traffic
concerns are as dire as some
predict. Traffic would only
increase during certain set sail
ing times, and the Maypor
Flyover along with the
Wonderwood Expressway wil
help move cars quickly anc
efficiently off Mayport Road
In addition, a Mayport Cruise
Ship Terminal would also be a
boon to the beleaguered
Mayport Ferry.
The benefits of a cruise ship
terminal in Mayport far out
weigh any traffic concerns. WE
all need to hop on boarc
before this ship leaves por
without us!

ATLANTIC BEACH DISTRICT REFERENDUM ON BALLOT OCT. 2


Districting is right for Atlantic Beach


To the editor:
The "idea" for districting in Atlantic Beach did
not spring from Mayor Don Wolfson's head one
day as Bill Gulliford suggested in his column in
Wednesday's Leader. It was a campaign issue in
the election two years ago that was brought forth
by many of the citizens in Atlantic Beach who
have felt disenfranchised and disconnected from
the community. Wolfson promised these citizens
a chance to be heard and appointed a committee
to study the pros and cons of districting.
He appointed me to chair the District
Representation Study Committee. I am a
Certified Mediator and Board Certified Family
Attorney as well as a former mayor and I am qual-
ified to chair that committee in an objective, pro-
fessional and unbiased way. My committee was a
diverse group of citizens from varying neighbor-
hoods in Atlantic Beach, all concerned and capa-
ble individuals.
We educated ourselves on the districting issue
by listening to and examining data and informa-
tion from various resources including League of
Cities, other cities the size of Atlantic Beach, the
Supervisor of Elections, and the department
heads of our own city. We conducted public hear-
s ings in each of the four precincts and we exam-
r ined the voting histories of all four of our
1 precincts as well as conducted independent
d research on voting patterns, tum-out for elec-
tions, and the latest statistics on voting informa-
c tion for the city, including the residences of all
e the elected officials from the past 25 years. We
y also incorporated our own individual observa-
- tions.
t 1'. s: kour study, it became clear that a discrep-
e ancy existed in the voting patterns of District 13S
1 (across Mayport Road). In national elections,
d their voter turn-out was comparable to the norm
. for national elections, but in local elections, their
e voter turn-out was way below the norm as com-


pared to the other precincts. This fact coupled
with the other information gathered, gave us
sound reason to believe that the citizens in 13S do
not feel connected to their city.
We unanimously came to the conclusion that
our community could benefit as a whole by elect-
ing district representatives. These representatives
would have to live in their district, which would
make them more accessible to their constituents
and the needs of their neighborhood, but would
be elected by all of the citizens, which would pre-
vent a fragmentation of the community. The
commissioners would be responsible for serving
the interests of the entire city. We also felt that
the other precincts could equally benefit from
having district representation...
A great deal of thought and study went into
this decision and it is insulting for Mr. Gulliford
to suggest that any of these committee members
could possibly be manipulated into making a
decision for our community as important as this
one. It is becoming more and more obvious to
me that the true manipulators are those, like Mr.
Gulliford, who have never opened their minds to
consider both sides of the issue. If it doesn't look
"broke" to them, it ain't broke, no matter how bro-
ken it looks to others.
Now the time has come for the citizens to
decide. District representation has great potential
for our community. It has the possibility of uni-
fying our neighborhoods, of empowering citizens
to get involved in the community. It is time to
realize that citizens from all over the city have tal-
ents and wisdom to impart in the decision-mak-
ing processes of their community and we all must
share in the benefits derived from living in this
great city of Atlantic Beach.
Lyman T. Fletcher
Former Mayor, Atlantic Beach
Chairman, District Representation Study
Committee


Districting will allow power to be shared


To the editor:
The Leader will win no awards for the Sept. 26
Pro and Con about the upcoming Atlantic Beach
referendum on adding a residency requirement
for Commissioners. Stephen Kuti's miniscule Pro
was a generic letter that was published the same
day in the competition, while Bill Gulliford's
lengthy Con was written specifically for The
Leader.
Mr. Gulliford wrote that passage of the residen-
cy requirement does not alter the practical reality
that at-large voting will be retained, which is true.
But, Mr. Gulliford doesn't want district voting
.either, which would eliminate at-large elections
except for the mayor. What the residency require-
ment,will do is open up a seat at the table of
power for the marshside, the lack of which has led
to many injuries that Gulliford's gaze has missed.
A study group of more than a dozen Atlantic
Beach citizens suggested the residency require-
ment compromise; Bill Gulliford went to only


one public meeting where he declared the status
quo is good, and concluded subsequently that
the committee with the exception of its one dis-
senter, Commission candidate John Fletcher is
out of the mainstream.
I went to all of the public hearings and heard
many people speak in favor of change. I went to
over half of the study group's meetings, which
were open to the public, and read their final
report. The compromise that the study group sup-
ported, the residency requirement, comes from
months of research, meetings and reflection. This
is the mainstream.
Mr. Gulliford's mewling about the dangers of
having a Commissioner from the marshside
won't change the historical reality that he and his
Meservist buddies have run roughshod over the
entire community for years and simply don't
want to share power, period.

Districting will not benefit Atlantic Beach


To the editor:
Totally changing the way city
commissioners are elected is the
latest new-wave idea embraced
by the majority of our elected
officials. The referendum, for
many ill thought-out reasons,
has been placed on the ballot
which begs the question: Why?
The AB commissioners deter-
mined the current at-large elec-
tion process wasn't fair. It didn't
allow or'promote sufficient
diversity among elected offi-
cials. Too many were being
elected from the core city, and
the Mayport Road area has
never even had a resident run
for office. Therefore, it was
determined the current system
didn't properly reflect the "will
of the community" as a whole.
As to diversity, the mayor is a
businessman; one commission-
er is a non-working housewife;
one a school teacher; one a psy-
chologist; and one a retired
Navy veteran. But it was deter-
mined the city needs more, and
broader diversity in its elected
leadership.
A very objective and diverse
"blue ribbon" committee was
appointed, and chaired by for-
mer AB mayor Lyman Fletcher
to study the issue. In an attempt
to address the above, the panel
recommended dividing the city
into four geographic commis-
sion districts, and only candi-
dates who live in the district can


run. By doing this, the diversity
and representation problem
would be solved. Thus the dis-
trict scheme would guarantee
that there would be a commis-
sioner from every geographic
segment of the city, all of which
sounds quite virtuous.
However, the consequence of
the residence requirement is
that it reduces by 75 percent the
number of candidates that can
run for each district seat. With
a 4-1. vote, the commission
agreed with the findings of the
"blue ribbon" committee, and
the districting referendum was
placed on the upcoming ballot.
What impact could this have
on Atlantic Beach and the
future election process?
Over time, if a larger number
of district candidates were elect-
ed without opposition it would
be hard to rationalize how this
is a fair system for Atlantic
Beach as a whole. Would it be
fair to the voters and citizens if
various districts rarely had can-
didates with opposition, and
thus were automatically elected
without any vote?
Think about if the various
commission districts just organ-
ize their own caucuses every
four years and agree on a candi-
date who then runs unopposed.
All a potential candidate would
have to do is convince their fel-
low district members (i.e. their
neighbors) that they are the


right candidate, discourage
opposition, and -poof no city-
wide vote is required in that dis-
trict. In the worst outcome,
three districts could each put up
their one candidate, without
opposition, and control a 60%
voting majority on the AB com-
mission without anyone in the
city having an opportunity to
vote for any of them. While I
am certain it was just an over-
sight, unintended consequences
such as this were obviously
never considered by the "blue
ribbon" committee or the com-
mission in this hastily prepared
election referendum.
The even bigger question is
would this lead to power-bro-
kering in our city whereby small
groups have significant control?
Also, it passes, who will decide
the new boundary lines in the
future? And most importantly,
in proposing this new election
scheme, who are our elected
officials really representing? The
fact that districts reduce the
number of candidates that can
run for each commission seat by
75% doesn't seem to pass the
sniff test for better government.
This might be the most com-
pelling reason to vote no on the
new voting scheme.

Candor


by cops


good for

everyone

Remember the 6 o'clock rule.
That message is part of the
"sermon" that Jacksonville
Beach Police Chief Bruce
Thomason delivers to new hires
civilian and sworn officers-
in his department.
The 6 o'clock rule is simple,
the chief said. The rule means
that "If the [television] camera
[for the 6 o'clock news] is
shoved in your face, how would
you respond" if asked to explain
a particular action or decision.
If the action or decision was
based on sound reasoning that
can be explained to a reasonable
person.then OK. If not, then
there might be a problem.
Thomason explained the 6
o'clock rule recently when he
was asked why a local doctor
was not arrested in early August
even after a Jacksonville Beach
police officer reportedly warned
the "drunk" individual, inside a
store, not to drive. Shortly after
the warning, the doctor left the
store, got in a car and drove
home into a neighboring coun-
ty ignoring pursuing blue
lights for much of the trip.
Asked why the doctor was not
arrested, as is typical for a sus-
pected DUI offender, Thomason
explained that the sergeant on
duty made a judgment call.
Factoring into that decision was
the doctor was home with a
spouse and taking the suspect to
jail in St. Augustine -
would have taken an officer off
the street at a time when three
officers were on the street and
calls were backing up.
Thomason, who has a reputa-
tion for being forthright, looked
into the matter and explained
that while he supported the
sergeant's decision, he does not
necessarily agree with how the
matter was handled. He
explained that he thinks the
suspect should have been taken
to jail, even if it required calling
someone else in to transport a
prisoner.
"He thought he was making a
decision that was in the best
interests of 'the citizens,"
Thomason said, explaining that
he trusts the judgment of his
supervisors who bear a lot of
responsibility.
Thomason said he appreciat-
ed a reporter's inquiry into the
matter and said it provided him
an opportunity to talk about the
issue and use it for educational
purposes.
That's how it should be.
Thomason also made it clear
that he is confident the
sergeant's decision would have
been the same, regardless of
whether the suspect was a doc-
tor or on the other end of the
socio-economic scale.
A person's standing has no
bearing on whether he or she is
arrested, Thomason said. That is
part of the new hire sermon on
departmental expectations.
So, when in doubt, remember
the 6 o'clock rule.
The Jacksonville Beach Police
Department has a lot of respon-
sibility and a growing amount
of work and challenges. It's easy
to snipe in hindsight at a partic-
ular incident. It would also be
unfair.
Few of us would be willing to
don a uniform and a gun and go
to work daily to deal with
drunks and worse.
Thomason has a great deal of
trust in his officers justifiably
so based on the department's
performance and reputation to
date. It's a credit to Thomason
and his sergeants, as well as
other officers on his force, that
inquiries such as this are rarely
raised and, when made, are
promptly looked into 'and the
information shared.
That kind of openness is vital
to public confidence. Such can-
dor may not make the 6 o'clock
news, but in this instance it at
least merits a headline.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


Slow real estate market has Vestcor plans on hold

- MAYPORT, from A-1


Photo by LIZA MITCHELL
Lifeguards prepare to patrol the beachfront.


Flags will fly if needed

o RED TIDE, from A-1


Red Tide is caused by an
overgrowth of a reddish-
brown algae called Karenia
brevis which occurs naturally
in coastal waters.
Respiratory conditions
could include burning eyes
and nose, a severe irritation
and a dry cough.
Visitors and staff of
Huguenot Memorial Park
beach complained this week
of mild respiratory issues.
Symptoms appear to subside
once the individuals leave the
area but Nassau County offi-
cials issued a health advisory
Tuesday.
Waves of dead fish have
also washed ashore in
Fernandina Beach and por-
tions of Jacksonville Beach.
"We do have some dead fish
now," said Jimmy Wilkins of
the city's Parks and Recreation
Department. "We can tell
something is around. We are
definitely noticing it."
Faye Cotner, manager of the
Jacksonville Beach Fishing
Pier, said anglers are reporting
dead fish and that there have
been many complaints recent-
ly about the quality of the air
along the shoreline.
"Sometimes when the wind
blows just right, it smells like
battery acid," Cotner said. "If
you got respiratory problems
don't, come to the beach."
Red 'Tide' paalyzes the'terin
trial nervous system o9f fish
which causes them'''to'be'
unable to breath. Shellfish
also feed on the toxins which
can be poisonous to people
who may eat them.


No complaints were logged
in either Atlantic Beach or
Neptune Beach, according to
police officials in both cities.
LIfeguards are not on active
duty in either community.
Wilkins said if the situation
worsens in Jacksonville Beach,
rescue personnel will fly the
double red beach flags to
warn of dangerous ocean con-
ditions.
The Beaches could be closed
if there is a significant threat
to public health, he said.
Jacksonville health officials
have collected water samples
from Jacksonville Beach but
have not yet deemed the surf
unsafe.
Beach goers, particularly
those with preexisting respira-
tory conditions, are advised to
avoid the affected areas until
further information is avail-
able.
The city and other local and
state agencies are presently
conducting health and envi-
ronmental assessments of
coastal waters.
"Right now, if you want to
deal with the discomfort, go
ahead. But if you are fishing, I
would not eat the fish you
catch right now," Wilkins
said.
Cotner said marine patrol
officers said so long as fish are
cooked completely, the heat
Will make the fish edible.'" '
'Wilkins said Red Tide .is a
toxin that might cause st'olbi-
ach discomfort like vomiting
or diarrhea. "But I'm not a
doctor. I don't know how sick
you might get," he said.


Water district adopts

reduced tax millage


FROM CONTRIBUTOR

The St. Johns River Water
Management District's
Governing Board adopted its
fiscal year 2007-2008 budget
today, reducing the agency's
tax rate to 0.4158 mills for the
fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.
Under a 0.4158 millage rate
- 41.58 cents for every $1,000
of assessed property value -
the owner of a $200,000 house
who claims the standard
$25,000 homestead exemption
would pay $72.77 per year in
property taxes to the District.
Taxpayers in the District's
18-county service area in
northeast and east-central
Florida will see the tax rate
drop from 0.462 levied in fiscal
year 2006-2007.
The Board also gave final
approval to the $400 million
budget, which is $22 million,
or 5.3 percent, less than the


amended budget for the last
fiscal year. The decrease is
attributed to reductions in
both ad valorem and state rev-
enues for fiscal year 2007-2008
that result in reduced expendi-
tures in nearly all District pro-
grams.
"The District has developed
and implemented a budgeting
practice that limits the
agency's growth," said Board
Chairman David Graham of
Jacksonville. "Although more
and more people are moving to
our state and demanding serv-
ices, the District is constraining
its administrative budget by
maintaining current staffing
levels and focusing on a bal-
anced budget that will serve
the needs of our growing pop-
ulation."
About 36 percent of the
District's total revenues is
received from ad 'valorem
taxes.


Penman paving 3 months off

0- PENMAN, from A-1


Michael Price said in his letter
to Sharp and City Manager
George Forbes asking why they
have refused to meet with him
or the property owner.
Mayor Fland Sharp Thursday
said city officials opted to
leave the stretch unpaved to
allow Superior Contracting,
which is completing the Beach
Boulevard widening project
from San Pablo Road to
Penman Road, to install a 13-
foot deep storm drain line
directly in the right of way.
Sharp noted that the shop-
ping center has four existing
entrances and that access to
the center has not been a prob-
lem during construction.
Sharp said there is no point
in him meeting with the cen-
ter representatives, explaining
that city staff has already pro-
vided complete information.


"If they want to pay for it we
will be happy to do it but it's
going to be on their nickel and
it's not going to last very long.
Taxpayers have no business
paying for that," Sharp said.
"We'll open it when the job is
done."
Project Manager Junior Lilly
said last month that once the
drain line is in, the city will go
in and finish the paving, the
new entry wall and the land-
scaping.
"If I put that stuff in now, it
is going to damage what we've
already done. I'm not going to
install $100,000 worth of stuff
just to have it damaged," Lilly
said.
Lilly estimated the paving of
Penman Road South would be
complete sometime after early
December.

But, if the.Port Authority decides not to
build a cruise terminal, he plans to build
the other complex on the property where
the terminal would have been.
With the help of his development, Rood
said he envisions Mayport as a port of call
for cruise ships.
"I can't imagine [a cruise terminal]
being a port of call at Jacksonville, but I
could see it being a great port of call at
Mayport," he said.
Rood's vision for the area includes open-
air restaurants, shopping, music festivals
and art galleries that would attract tourists
to the area and enhance it for residents as
well.
But, residents of the area have expressed
concern over losing the shrimp boats and
lifestyle of the village.
"I believe improvements can be done
without it being detrimental [to the area],"
he said.
Rood owns another property, a basin by
the Coast Guard station, that he could
make available for shrimp boats, if feasi-
ble, he said.
Rood emphasized that a cruise terminal


the ferry and possibly spark some infra-
structure improvements, such as fixing
sidewalks, he said.
"It's a g6od, clean industry for a com-
munity to have," he said of cruise ships.
Jacksonville City Councilor Ray Holt,
who represents the district that includes
Mayport, said he also supports the termi-
nal idea and has not received any negative
feedback from his constituents thus far.
"I think it could really bring a lift to an
area that has suffered some downturn in
the shrimping and fishing industry," Holt
said.
However, Rood said that parking a key
concern for the area.
If the Port Authority moves forward
with a terminal, there are plans for a park-
ing garage.
"One of the biggest obstacles is park-
ing," Rood said, adding that there just is
not enough in the area.
He said that he wants the Port
Authority to consider metered parking so
that visitors and residents alike can
patronize businesses.
Rood also stressed the. importance of
doing things right so that the style of his
development and the terminal comple-
ment one another.
"This would be a neat stop," he said.

AB's WQOP celebrates 10th anniversary


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
Queen of Peace Radio, a
nonprofit Catholic station on
AM-1600, is celebrating 10
years of "radio for the soul"
from the only radio station
located at the Beaches.
"We are bringing the mes-
sage of the Catholic faith to
the world in our own little
way," said Richard Miller of
Atlantic Beach, who is one of
five partners of the station.
"Most radio signals are pie-
shaped but because our tower
is on a salt marsh we have this
beautiful crescent-moon-
shaped signal that follows the
coastline. The signal goes all
the way up to Hilton Head,
S.C. and as far south as St.
Augustine."
The Atlantic Beach radio
station, originally built in
1959, can be seen along the
Intracoastal Waterway when
driving over the Atlantic Blvd.
Bridge. It was a Christian
radio station owned by New


Convenant Ministries when
the wheels were set in motion
for a group of Catholic lay-
men to make the purchase.
Miller and his brother-in-
law, Dr. Chris Williams and
Pete Cagle were at a meeting
with the men's group the St.
Joseph's Covenant Keepers
when Keepers founder Steve
Wood gave them the idea.
"Steve Wood told us we
could do Catholic radio with-
out any programming, all we
needed was a radio station,"
Miller said. "The program-
ming is free through national
Catholic stations so we were
like wow, that sounds easy
enough and we started look-
ing."
Miller's wife, Laura Miller,
grew up in Atlantic Beach and
has been driving by the small
radio station her entire life.
The Millers have nine chil-
dren and she said she has
always been a fan of radio
because she spends so much
time driving.
"I remember wondering

last week.


is totally a dream at this point
but it could happen," Richard
Miller said. "Donors have got-
ten together and they've done
it in other cities."
When WQOP first aired 10
years ago it was the third 24-
hour Catholic radio station in
the country. Now there are
more than 100. Miller said
WQOP has helped launch
Catholic radio stations ,in
South Bend, Indiana and
Rochester, NY.
"We are so fortunate in this
country to have the freedom
to spread the word of God,"
Richard Miller said.
"We have the opportunity
daily to live our faith through
our actions and speak about
our faith. This is radio for the
soul."

Church's Open House -
The first fall program will be
held at noon on October 3 in
Patten Hall. The speaker will
be Vernon Kelly, who has
nearly 30 years of experiences
with the TPC organization. He
will speak on "The History of
the Tournament Players Club
Sawgrass". Kelly oversaw the
original construction of TPC
Sawgrass from its inception in
1978. Dubbed "Mr.
Sawgrass," he was involved
with the extensive renovation
of the TPC Stadium Course
which opened in May. As
President of the PGA Tour
Golf Course Properties, Inc.,
he was responsible for devel-
opment and operation of over
25 TPCs in the US; under his
leadership, the World Golf Hall

Doors will open at 11:30 and a
lunch catered by Barry Adeeb
will be served at noon. Tickets
will be $8 and sold after wor-
ship services on September
30, as well as in the church

Reservations will not be taken
after noon on October 2.


what goes on in there and
when they came back with
the idea to start a Catholic
radio station that was the first
thing that came into my
mind," said Laura Miller.
"We spend so much time in
our cars and listening to the
radio in our cars. It,s a very
personal medium."
Miller, Williams, Cagle, Ray
Makowski and Jim Jarboe
bought the radio station in
.1997 for $325,000. Paul
Danese was the original gener-
al manager and helped WQOP
get off the ground. Richard
Miller said the operating cost
is about $11,000 a month and
is supported entirely by dona-
tions.
The 24-hour station WQOP
AM-1600 airs national pro-
gramming like Catholic
Connections, Catholic
Answers and programs found
on Mother Angelica's WEWN
[Eternal World Network].
Miller estimates WQOP reach-
es between 10,000 and 15,000
people a day.
Tom Moran, WQOP general
manager, also runs a live local
show every Friday from 5 p.m.

Barletta and Krista Cline. Past
guests include Bishop Victor
Galeone, Father Kelly of St.
Paul's Catholic Church in
Jacksonville Beach, and teach-
ers from LaVilla School for the
Arts, whose choir performed
at the Vatican.
"One of the very first radio
broadcasts in the world was
from the Vatican," Laura
Miller said.
"I think there is this mis-
conception that Catholics
don't support technology but
Pope John Paul II, the pope of
our time, said give me all
you've got technology-wise
and use it for the glory of
God. We are responding to his
call to evangelize."
Although WQOP has a wide
reach along the coast it does
not reach past downtown
Jacksonville. Miller said they
are working on webstreaming
the station so that people can
tune in using the internet all
over Jacksonville and the west
side of town.
"We look at this as an
opportunity to unify the dio-
cese," Laura Miller said. "We


will advertise anything for the
diocese from St. Catherine's in
Orange Park to Marywood
Retreat Center in Switzerland,
Fla. We want to promote
what's going on in our
churches and communities."
The Millers said the ulti-
mate goal would be to air on
FM radio so WQOP could
reach all of Jacksonville and
the surrounding areas 24-
hours a day. There are more
than 162,000 registered
Catholics in the Diocese of St.
Augustine which also includes
Jacksonville and the Beaches.
Miller said 60 percent of the
Beaches area is Catholic.
"Going FM would probably
be a $6 million station which

Holy Trinity Anglican Church


Who are we?

We are what the Episcopal Church used to be before it began making
compromises using the latest trends and social fads of this world. If you are
curious, come and visit and worship with us and find out who we are.

Holy Trinity was founded in 1994 and met for a long while in a small family
chapel in Neptune Beach. However, in May of 2000 the church was incorpo-
rated and soon began meeting in the "Old Chapel" which is owned by and
located on the grounds of the Beaches Chapel Church in Neptune Beach.
Upon incorporation, the church was received as a parish of the Diocese of the
South, ACC. The ACC (Anglican Catholic Church) grew out of a congress
held in St. Louis, Missouri in 1977. That year, the Right Rev. Albert Chambers,
retired Episcopal Bishop of Springfield, Illinois met with over 2,000 Episcopal
clergy and lay people who were concerned about the innovations and reinter-
pretation of Scripture that was beginning in the Episcopal Church. The next
year a constitution was created which established an Anglican movement which
would remain faithful to the theology and biblical truths of the 1928 Book of
Common Prayer that had always characterized American Anglican faith and
worship.

Holy Trinity exists today as one of nearly one hundred parishes dedicated to
preserving the biblical values of the Anglican faith that had been held by
Anglicans everywhere before the innovations that began in the 1960's and 70's.

Until now service time has been 8:00 A.M. Sunday. As of Sunday, October
7th, Holy Trinity will begin holding services in the "Old Chapel" at 610
Florida Blvd., Neptune Beach at 9:00 A.M.

Nease, Fletcher split swim meet


FROM STAFF
The latest chapter of the
Beaches rivalry unfolded in the
pool Tuesday afternoon with
each side able to claim a share
of victory.
Nease girls swimmers defeat-
ed Fletcher High 193-122,
while the Senators boys team
outpointed the Panthers, 199-
110. In the combined total,
Fletcher swam to victory, 321-
303 in the meet taking place at
Winston Family YMCA in
Ponte Vedra.
In the girls 200-yard freestyle
relay, the Nease quartet of
Kristen Gerkens, Amanda
Santillo, Grace Hoffman and
Alayna Erhard swam to a first-
place finish in a time of
1:44.55.

T ere will be a bit of local
flavor to Saturday's River
City Showdown at
S Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium.
Oddly, that area representa-
tion won't be on the Florida
State sideline, but rather across
the field wearing Alabama
crimson.
Former Nease High stars
Will Oakley and Charlie
Kirschman are among 11 play-
ers from the Sunshine State on
Alabama's roster.
Oakley, a wide receiver, has
suited up for all four of the
Crimson Tide's games this sea-
son and has one reception a
key one for 16 yards against
Arkansas.
"It's definitely a special
game," Oakley told the
Tuscaloosa News. The junior '
went on to note that it won't
be difficult to get geared up for
Saturday's game because it's in
Jacksonville, not far from his
Ponte Vedra Beach alma mater.
The 6-1, 196-pound Oakley
has been used sparingly this
season. He is still recovering
from re-tweaking his ham-
string during training camp,
and told-ftheiewspap'erf-ilet-
ic trainers strapped an elastic
band around his ankles in
practice to provide extra pull
when he runs as a means of
building strength.
In his sophomore season last
year, Oakley caught 18 passes
for 223 yards.
Kirschman is a redshirt
freshman linebacker at
Alabama but has yet to see any
game action.
The 6-2, 228-pound
Kirschman was limited by an
ankle injury to just 31 tackles
during his senior season at
'Nease, but did earn a state
championship ring when the
Panthers topped Seffner
I Armwood in the 2005 Class 4A
title game.
It was Kirschman who sur-
reptitiously slipped an
Alabama cap atop Tim Tebow's
head as the quarterback
answered reporters' questions
following that championship
contest in Miami. At the time,
Tebow had narrowed his
potential suitors to Florida and
the Crimson Tide, ultimately
choosing to become a Gator
during a nationally-televised
press conference a few days
later.
As for the River City
Showdown itself, both Florida
State and No. 16 Alabama
stand to profit from playing in
Jacksonville. Each school will
net about $2 million, accord-
ing to terms of the game con-
tract, which was obtained by
The Huntsville (Ala.) Times
through an open-records
request.
The Crimson Tide usually
pockets about $2 million from
each home game.
The game is a complete sell-
out with 78,000 tickets
snapped up quickly when they
went on sale last month.
Stadium officials had to add
seats to accommodate demand
and the crowd is expected
to be the largest in the facili-
ty's history, surpassing even
that of Super Bowl XXXIX in
2005.
As for the nuts and bolts,
Alabama seems like a program
on the rise, while the Semin-
oles appear stuck in neutral.
FSU coach Bobby Bowden is
nearing the end of a glorious
coaching career, while
Alabama fans hope former LSU
and Miami Dolphins coach
Nick Saban is just beginning a
long run with the Crimson
Tide.
The game takes place
Saturday with opening kickoff
slated for about 5 p.m.

Injuries plague Senators as season nears end


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

Just when things were starting to
look good for Fletcher high's volleyball
team, something went wrong.
Inaddition to losing starter Sydney
Rogers a week ago with a sprained
ankle, Jordan Rix, another starter for
the Senators, is out indefinitely with
the same injury.
"It's always painful when you're miss-
ing two of your starters," head coach
Janice Wish said. "The season will have
a different perspective now that we're
missing two starters."
Wish is not sure when to expect
either of the players back. Rogers was
listed as out for three-to-four weeks but
is now unsure when she will return to
the lineup. The same goes for Rix, who
injured her ankle against St. Augustine
during a tournament at Episcopal High
School last weekend.
During the match, Rix collided with
Kelley Davis while trying to play a ball,
knocking both players out of the
match. Davis fell and hit her head hard
on the court while Rix suffered a
sprained ankle. Davis has since returned
to action.
"Her head still hurts a bit," Wish said.
"She's just tough, though."
The Senators didn't fare too well in
the Episcopal tournament, finishing
second to last while facing teams from
St. Augustine, Episcopal, University


Christian, Fleming Island and
Providence. Fletcher picked up a win
against UC, but fell to the other teams,
despite a close match against St.


Augustine.
Wish admits her team's inexperience
is beginning to show.
"We didn't play that great," Wish said

of the tournament. "Our inexperience
on this team this year is starting to
show because we're playing better and
more experienced teams. I'm fine with
that as long as we play well the next
four weeks and-beyond."
With the end of the season closing
in, the Senators' main goal is to get
through the district.
Fletcher faced Yulee High School
Tuesday night at home, but lost in
three games 25-15, 25-11, 25-17 to the
Hornets.
The Senators got five kills from
Megan Arias and 13 assists from Kelli
Thurson.
"We're just not playing the basics,
not finding the core right now," Wish
said. "I don't think we did the basic
stuff. We made to many hitting errors
and they were a good team. They
picked up everything we threw at
them."
On Wednesday, the Senators traveled
to Englewood where they lost in four
games, 25-20, 12-25, 19-25, 21-25.
Thurson had seven aces and Arias 13
kills in the losing effort.
Fletcher was set to host district rival
Orange Park on Thursday. The Raiders
are one team Wish has said the
Senators need to do well against -
regardless of the injury situation.
"It won't be a true test of what we
have, but we'll give it everything we've
got," Wish said of the upcoming
matches without her two starters.
"We can only do so much."

Fitness guru Jack LaLanne is




going strong at 93 years old


this week. Now for those
of you who don't know
o LaLanne is, he was "The
Man" before Arnold
Schwarzenegger, before the
Rock, or any other body
builder you've ever heard of.
He was the king of fitness
before Jane Fonda, Richard
Simmons, or any of those
models on ESPN.
If it had anything to do
with fitness, Jack LaLanne was
the go to guy.
LaLanne opened America's
first health club in 1936, com-
plete with a health food store
and a juice bar. His clubs
eventually grew and grew,
until he sold the chain to a
company to form what is now
known as Bally's.
He introduced America to
television exercise shows in
1951 when he went on the air
and stayed there for 34 years,
convincing people to get off
the couch and do jumping.
jacks and toe touches in their
pajamas, while he appeared in
that cheesy jumpsuit with the
short sleeves.
LaLanne's show now
appears daily on ESPN Classic.
He reportedly has not missed
a day of his 5 a.m. work out
in 74 years, lifting weights for
an hour and then swimming
for an hour after that.


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


LaLanne is angry that physi-



LaLanne is angry that physi-
cal fitness and education pro-
grams are disappearing from


our schools and sad at the
state of obesity in young peo-
ple today. He blames the junk
food inherent in our culture
now.
He is faithful to his daily
diet-of a protein shake for'
breakfast, fruit and egg whites
for lunch, and salad, raw veg-
etables, brown rice and grilled
fish for dinner.
LaLanne has accomplished
some incredible feats in his
lifetime. He once did 1,000
chin-ups and 1,000 push ups
in 82 minutes.
Then he began to take on
birthday milestones. At the
age of 40, he swam while
handcuffed from Alcatraz to
Fisherman's Wharf. At 60, he
repeated the feat, but
increased the effort by also
towing a row boat loaded
down with 1,000 pounds of
sand.
At 70, he towed 70 people
in 70 boats for a mile and a
half in the waters just off
Long Beach.
You think that's crazy? He
used to drink a quart of blood
a day that he would get
straight from the slaughter
house, an idea he got from
the African Masais tribes who
do so for strength. He is some-
what short at 5-feet, 4-inches
tall, but LaLanne boasts a 46-
inch chest and can still do
push ups with ease.


LaLanne's life has changed
dramatically from when he
was a skinny 15-year-old with
constant headaches from a
high intake of sugar and junk
food. His mother introduced
Jack to a nutritionist, who
told him he was a "human
garbage can" and convinced
him to eat right.
That day he decided to take
up exercising, and swore off
sweets, and has stuck to it
since that day.
Even for his 93th birthday,
he won't eat any of his cake.
LaLanne continues to stress
activity and has strong advice
for those not exercising, bold-
ly stating that "the only way
you can really hurt your body
is if you don't use it!"

P,.no 1 ) A


Franklin fulfills his dream by




opening Lunar Surf Company


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
After years of shaping
boards from his
Neptune Beach garage,
Cory Franklin recently
opened Lunar Surf Company
in Atlantic Beach.
Located on the way to the
surf spot known as "The
Poles" in Hanna Park, Lunar
is located at 1089 Atlantic
Blvd. just before turning onto
Mayport Road from the
beach.
"This is a dream for me,"
said Franklin, ,a Jacksonville
Beach native who grew up
surfing local contests.
"We're a true surf shop,
shaping custom boards in the
back. No skateboards. No
snowboards."
Franklin started out fixing
dings and shaping boards for
friends in his garage and he
has the support of local
shapers like Tim Chew and
Mike Whisnant who send
repairs to Franklin when
they're overbooked.
He said he always wanted
to open a shop but kept put-
ting it on the back burner
until an accident in March
changed his life. Franklin got
out of his car to make a cell
phone call on Lem Turner
Blvd. in Jacksonville when he
was struck by a truck going
60 mph. The driver fell asleep
at the wheel and Franklin
was thrown 40 feet in the air
and into a tree. He has nerve
damage in his left shoulder
and is awaiting surgery.
"I'm lucky because I could
have been injured a lot worse
and there was a bus stop
right there that the guy could
have hit a bunch of kids,"
Franklin said.
"That accident woke me up
in a lot of ways. I always
wanted to open a surf shop
but it was never the right
time. After the accident, my
attitude changed. If I bomb, I
bomb, but I'm going to go for
it."
Several local shapers and
glassers are working in the
Lunar factory such as Matt
Whisnant [shaper Mike
Whisnant's
son], Adam
Ley, Kane and
Marcus
Pickering.
Pickering is a
childhood
friend of
Franklin's who
teaches sec-
ond grade at
Atlantic Beach
Elementary.
The rest of the
guys are stu- .
dents who
work at Lunar
part-time.
Franklin also
has a cable
installation
company he is
continuing to
run in addi-
tion to Lunar.
"Lunar" has
been Un
Franklin's
nickname See live sur
since he was a www.beach


teenager at
Fletcher High. His daughter,
Allissa, 8, is a third grader at
Atlantic Beach Elementary
and the nickname "little
Lunar" is catching on. She
also competes in local Eastern
Surfing Association contests.
Franklin's wife, Stephanie,
and Allissa's mom, is original-
ly from Southern California
and the family lived out
there for a couple years
before moving back to
Florida.
Franklin fell into surfing at
the age of 9 when he found a
surfboard sticking out of a
dumpster on his walk home
to Portside Mobile Home Park
on Beach Blvd.
Now Franklin hopes to
inspire young surfers by
sponsoring local kids. His
sponsorships offer either
boards at cost or free and dis-
counts at the store. If riders
place in the finals of a con-
test, Lunar will reimburse the
contest entry fee and double
the cost. The second North
Florida Eastern Surfing
Association contest at Hanna
Park Oct. 7 is sponsored by
Lunar Surf Co.
"I think it's real important
to give back to the surfing
community and it's a way for
them to promote you,"
Franklin said. "I know this is
a tough business but I have a
great crew and a dream and
I'm going to do my best to
keep it running."

end's 14th annual Sawgrass
Village Art Festival.
The event is scheduled 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday, when about 100
artists will display their works
and chat with visitors.
Featured will be sculpture,
ceramics, photography, paint-
ing, jewelry and more.
Among works on display
will be photographs taken by
Nicki Leach of Ponte Vedra
Beach, who died at age 19
from a brain tumor. She took
the photos in the years before
her death in 2005.
Sales of her work, as well as
an art auction, will benefit the
Nicki Leach Foundation,
which provides high school.
and college students who have
cancer some activities they
might not be able to afford.
As the festival's featured
artist, Stump has one of her
works a drawing of a blue
heron featured on the,
event's program.
Stump does most of her
work in pencil, and she said
that fact often surprises festi-
val-goers.

"Most people are amazed
that pencil can be so vibrant,"
she says on her web site
(www.amyarts.com).
There are many reasons pen-
cils make good art instru-
ments, she says.
"The pencil is always ready
so there is no prep time before
you create. The pencil is
portable, so I can create any-
where. The pencil can be
used for any length of time. .
," she says on her site.
"With a few simple strokes,
layers or effects, the color can


take the properties of pastel,
watercolor, ink, or acrylic."
When Stump started work-
ing for the Clay County
Sheriff's Office, she was 20 and
,a clerical assistant.
With permission, Stump
went back to school and stud-
ied forensic artist textbooks in
her down time.
After nearly a decade, the
department sent her for FBI
certification, and now she
helps investigators by
drawing suspects' faces
from the memories of
witnesses.
Stump said she is doing
what she loves draw-
ing and still holding
down her administrative
duties at the department.
She says for the past 10
years she has spent about
40 weekends each year
creating, displaying and
selling her work and
developing her reputa-
tion as an artist.
Stump said she was
thrilled to be chosen as
this year's featured artist
and hopes the communi-
ty will come out to sup-
port all of the artists.
"It's your chance to become
inspired by the stories behind
the artists and their artwork,"
she said.


Fairy ring mushrooms a no-no


all is here, according to
the calendar that is, but
so far there have only
been miniscule changes in
my neck of the woods to
show it has arrived.
The days are getting short-
er and the temperatures
might be a tad lower, but for
me, until the humidity goes
away, we're still stuck in sum-
mer. I have to admit that I
am enjoying the early
evening hours, and then I
definitely can feel a change
in the air.
Regardless of the tempera-
tures, there are so many
classes, demonstrations and
garden fairs coming up that
if you are a newcomer to the
area, or an old timer who
needs a new look for your
landscape, something will be
on the calendar for the
month of October that you
should enjoy.
I will give as complete a list
as I currently have for these
events after I talk about
mushrooms.
Why mushrooms? Of all
things, mushrooms are tak-
ing the spotlight in neighbor-
hoods across Jacksonville.
From fancy subdivisions to
downtrodden lots, mush-
rooms seem to be popping
up, quite literally, right

before our eyes.
And some of them are
huge, with diameters of eight
inches. Some are flat, some
are pudgy. Some seem to be
in a ring, others are random-
ly placed. Most are white,
though some may have a
tinge of color. So what is
going on?
Mushrooms and moisture
go together, and as you
know, we have had some
heavy downpours recently.
Mushrooms are a fungus,
actually the fruiting body of
a fungus, which is feeding on
rotting material. The rotting
material might be an obvious
dead log, or a not-so-obvious


rotting root of a tree or shrub
that once grew in the spot.
Or the fungus could even
be feeding on thatch as it
decomposes. By in large,
mushrooms are not a bad
sign, but a sign that Mother
Nature is at work. Many of
these mushrooms appear to
be in a ring, and somehow
long ago, got the name "fairy ,
ring mushrooms."
To quote from Florida
Gardener.com, "The name
Fairy Ring comes from an old
folk tale where people once
believed that mushrooms
growing in a circle followed
the path made by fairies
dancing in a ring.
"During Florida's summer
months fairy rings most
often occur after 2 or 3 days
of rain followed by several
days of dry, sunny weather.
Fairy rings grow where large
quantities of organic matter,
such as lumber, tree stumps,
logs, etc. have been buried
and are rotting in the garden
or yard. The fungi use these
as their source of nutrition,
and what we see are their
fruiting bodies, otherwise
called, mushrooms."
The most important thing

"Anything that you pur-
chase simply gives that artist
the satisfaction that someone
loves their artwork just as
much as they loved creating
the piece," she said. :'.. :
The festival is in Sawgrass
Village, located off State Road
A1A at PGA Tour Boulevard.
Another art festival is[ ched-
uled Oct:--21 -and 22 -inr

to know about these mush-
rooms is never eat them. The
best thing you can do is to
scout your yard every day, and
after donning a pair of dispos-
able gloves, gently pull the
mushrooms out of the grass,
throw them into a trash bag
and then into the garbage can
along with your gloves. Be
sure and whsh your hands
before getting them close to
your mouth or a food source.
Not all mushrooms are poi-
sonous, but we don't want
anyone to be the quizmaster
and find they've made an
incorrect guess. Eventually
they will go away, usually
when they have consumed all
that is rotting or when the
moisture diminishes.
There is no sense in using a
fungidd to 'eradicate them
because you cannot get to the
rotting material that'tiey are"
feeding on, so why add more
chemicals to the environment
that are totally unnecessary?
Instead, consider them as an
instant science lesson.
Here are the options for
more learning during October:

The Jacksonville Museum
of Contemporary Art wel-
comed a new director this
month Debbie Broder.
This dedicated administra-
tor brings new ideas and

Oct.' 10 will be "China
Blue," which documents the
working conditions in a blue
jeans factory. The following

Perfection and beauty are
the words to describe the
works of art John Bunker
exhibits in his new show at
Stellers Annex in Neptune
Beach.
The exhibit, which opened
last Friday night, consists of
about 15 works of art, mostly


oils on canvas, with one large
watercolor and a grouping of
four small watercolors.
Fish dnd flowers are domi-
nant in strong blues, blacks,
white and a rainbow of
bright colors scattered
through the works. The-
kimono series is particularly'
intriguing in detail.
Susanne Magee shares this

'The Buffy Musical' will slay you


Once more with feeling,
Buffy.
At midnight tonight and
tomorrow, the San Marco
Theatre reprises a famed
episode of TV's "Buffy the
Vampire Slayer" as an
audience-participation show.
If you're wondering why
you should go out at mid-
night and pay for what was
once on free TV, here's some
background.
Once upon a time, Joss
Whedon, a TV and movie
writer ("Toy Story"), decided
to invert the slasher-movie
formula of helpless women
getting hacked up by psy-
chos. He wrote a script about
a cheerleader chosen by fate
to fight vampires.
'.'Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
was first a flop movie in
1992. Five years later
Whedon, er, resurrected the
concept into one of TV's
most acclaimed shows. Its
fan base refuses to let it die.
(Whedon has created a


STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
comic book, "Buffy Season
Eight," that "continues" the
TV series.)
Whedon used his unique
concept high school as a
metaphor for hell to turn
television on its ear. A
music-less episode in which
Buffy's mother dies touched
viewers, hearts. Another seg-
ment was dialogue-free, with
a villain who stole every-
one's voices.
And then there was the
sixth-season ep "Once More
'with Feeling," in which a


tap-dancing demon (yes, you
read that right) causes Buffy
& Co. to burst into songs
that reveal their true emo-
tions.
Whedon had always want-
ed to do a musical episode,
but he couldn't until his
show was moved from fledg-
ling network The WB to the'
more lenient UPN. (Both
* nets are now merged into
The CW.)
Whedon made the most of
his moment, writing the ep's
music and lyrics, and shoot-
ing it in wide-screen to emu-
late a splashy 1950s musical.
And like those shows, "Once
More" now hits the big
screen.
"The Buffy Musical" began
in 2004 as a cult show in
Boston and now tours the
U.S. to sell-out crowds. It
comes complete with on-
screen subtitles, and off-
screen goodie bags for audi-
ence participation a la
"Rocky Horror."

Dvorak's New World opens JSO season


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
The Jacksonville Symphony
Orchestra opens its 2007-08
season with a program featur-
ing Dvorak's "New World"
Symphony.
Led by music director Fabio
Mechetti, the season-opening
Masterworks Series perform-
ances are at 8 p.m. today and
Saturday at Jacoby Symphony
Hall.
The event also features
pianist lan Parker, performing
Grieg's Piano Concerto. The
young Canadian pianist
brought the house down in
Jacksonville in March 2006 for
the Jacksonville Symphony's


Classical Madness "Final Four"
Concert, playing
Rachmaninoff's Second
Concerto and Paganini
Rhapsody, on short notice and
with almost no rehearsal.
The concert opens .with
Smetana's Overture to The
Bartered Bride. Each of these
works on the program is
among the most beloved pieces
of the Romantic Era.
Dvorak hits land and paints
a musical picture of how he
saw the new world then,
through the eyes of his old-
world roots. His "New World"
symphony is a cultural kaleido-
scope, still defining what we


are today. Meanwhile, back in
the old world, Smetana creates
the liveliest comic atmosphere
imaginable and Grieg defines
the Norwegian soul with
melodic sentiment and nostal-
gia.
Post-concert 'Talkback" fol-
lows the Saturday perform-
ance, with Mechetti and
Parker.

Orchestra box office at 354-

Compost to benefit your garden and our planet


Dear Jane,

I can't stand just throwing
away all this trash each and
every day. Any suggestions on
how I can become more
green?

Thanks,
Mary M.

Dear Mary,
Good for you for being
environmentally conscious!
Ah, garbage. It seems as
though as soon as we take it
out, another bag is right
behind it. Even with recycling
and the garbage disposal,
there is never a shortage of
trash. What's a homeowner to
do? Start a compost.
Composting may not be the
most glamorous of home
improvement projects, but
name another scenario where
you can improve your garden,
do something for our planet,
and have less trash to hand
over to the city every week.
Starting your own compost is
simple and has an enormous
return. This is one of those
projects that'll have you won-
dering why you waited so
long to do it.
Comp6st is essentially layers
of natural materials that even-
tually break down to produce
a nutrient-rich soil. This natu-
ral fertilizer is great for your
garden as it replenishes nutri-
ents missing from damaged
soil. As any gardener will tell
you, the success of your gar-
den depends largely on the
quality of your dirt.
Another big plus you
don't need worms to have a
compost. The breakdown of
materials can occur on a
much smaller biological level.
(Though you can start a worm
compost a.k.a vermicom-

What to keep it in
With more people catching
onto composting, the options
of where and how to. keep
your pile have increased dra-
matically. Nowadays, you can'
buy a prebuilt composting bin
for about $150 or less. (But,
we've seen them as high as
$300). These devices are typi-
cally plastic and are designed
to keep odors away and thus,
critters at bay! Some even
come equipped with shredders
that accelerate the decomposi-
tion process.

Make your own
It's not necessary to buy a
composting bin, since you can
make your own with odds and
ends. They can be constructed
out of wood pallets, wire
mesh, old fencing, even a
bureau! Just know this an
open compost pile is likely to
smell and attract bugs and
animals. If you go this route,
make sure it's in the wide
open, and not next to your
bedroom window.

be $7 at the door. There also
will be a raffle and silent auc-
tion. Proceeds will be for
Ruttle's wife and 11-month-
old daughter. Ruttle, who was
31 when he died, was a
Florida State fan, and the ben-
efit is being held the weekend
of the FSU-Alabama game.

Saturday, Sept. 29
Family Fun Day: Sam the
Screech Owl and Gopher
Tortoise will be in the Friends
Community Room of the

Library from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
The event is sponsored by the
board of directors of what will
be Bird Island Park, and Sam


idea we really like is making
one from a giant plastic con-
tainer normally used for stor-
age. Simply drill holes in the
bottom and in the lid and you
have a very simple and inex-
pensive composting bin. But,
you ask, what do I put in?
And how? Read on!
A successful compost
requires the right combina-
tion of carbon and nitrogen.
The carbon comes from
"brown" ingredients: Straw,
dried leaves, newspaper, card-
board, etc. Nitrogen comes
from "green" ingredients: Food
scraps, grass clippings, etc.
(The gunk that comes from
cleaning your gutters is per-
fect for the compost heap.)
The right mix breaks down
easily and produces a fantastic
fertilizer. However, it's tricky
to get the proper mixture on
your first or even second try.
Be patient and keep trying:
This will pay off.
Where to start? Layer num-
ber one should consist of
brown ingredients. The key is
to have good circulation at
the bottom of your bin or
pile, so don't pile the clip-
pings on too thick; about one
to two inches. should suffice.
The next layers should alter-
nate between brown and
green materials. Each layer
should be about two inches
thick, and a thin layer of
manure can be placed
between green and brown lay-
ers. A trick of the trade -
break down any material that
is in large pieces before
adding it to your compost
pile; it will decompose faster.
If you are using a tumbler,
layers aren't necessary. Just
toss everything in!
What you can put in your
compost:
Hair (spread it around)


Preserve your wine by resealing or


Is there a recorked bottle of
wine on your counter? Be
honest: How long has it
been open? Days? And you
Wonder why it doesn't taste as
good as that memorable
moment last weekend when
you decided to save some?
People cling to open bottles
of wines like they cling to
dirty potholders. Wine may
improve with age but certain-
not after it has bee ..-
6pened. So this week we're
going to give some advice
about opened wines.
Once a wine is opened,
wine molecules exchange with
air molecules and all those
aromas that have been
trapped begin to emerge.
That's why you hear advice to
decant old wines, a dicey
process that risks a quick
evaporation of the wine's frag-
ile aromas.
A little oxygen is good, but
a lot of oxygen is bad. At
some point impossible to
determine, the same air that
released a wine's bouquet'
begins to harm it. An older
wine will fall apart faster if it
isn't properly recorked.
A resealed wine will arrest
or at least stabilize the oxida-
tion process. But don't think
those cute stoppers with fancy
tops will provide an adequate
seal.
We reinsert a cork as soon
as we uncork a wine. If you
don't do it right away, the

cork swells and becomes
much more difficult to rein-
sert. A reused cork can give
you an adequate seal for
another day. But if you want
to keep wine for a few days
(about as long as you can
expect without any deteriora-
tion), you may want to con-
sider using a gas that displaces
the air in the bottle. Wine
magazines sell these devices.
Private Preserve, for instance,
uses a combination of gases -
nitrogen, carbon dioxide and
argon and are more effec-
tive than a Vacu-vin which
just sucks the air out of a bot-
tie.
No matter how you reseal a
bottle, it is important to keep
in cool. Even a well-sealed
bottle will deteriorate at room
temperature. Put it back in a
temperature-controlled cellar


or the refrigerator and that
includes red wine.
If the bottle is at lest half
empty, consider transferring
the wine to a half bottle. It is
worth your while to keep a
clean 375ml bottle around.
We like to go back to a bot-
tle to confirm our notes and
often to see how it progresses.
Some bottles, particularly
whitekburgundy, can actually
get-better the next day.- if
'the bottle has been adequately
resealed.
Don't consume too much
wine because you think the
wine will sour in a day. Reseal
the wine properly and extend
your pleasure.
SOMETHING DIFFERENT
We are fortunate to get a
chance to taste our fair share
of cabernet sauvignon, merlot,
shiraz and chardonnay grown
in the classic familiar places.
Anyone who has more than a
passing interest in wine has
tasted a cabernet sauvignon or
chardonnay from Napa or
Sonoma Valley or a fruity shi-
raz from Southeastern
Australia.
But on a recent Saturday Pat
went in search of "something
different" and ended up with
several recommendations:
Gerard and Pierre Morin
Sancerre Vendage a La Main
2004 ($25). This is not the
fairly common, crisp white
sancerre made from the sauvi-
gnon blanc grape, but a red


and Gopher are likely inhabi-
tants. Also on hand will be
Billy Zeitz, natural resource
director with the Recreation
and Parks Department of St
Johns County, and Beverly
Fleming, master naturalist
instructor for St Johns
County. The event is free and
open to the public. No reser-
vations are needed.

First Coast Summer Blast:
The final tournament in the
Jacksonville Volleyball Club's
First Coast Summer Blast
Series will be held Saturday
morning on the Jacksonville
Beach beachfront at 4th
Avenue North. To participate,
go to the club's website, jack-
sonvillevolleyballclub.com.
Chris Morrissey is the director.

MS Bike Ride: The two-day
PGA Tour MS Bike Ride,
"Cycle to the Shore," starts
and finishes at the St.
Augustine/St. Johns County
Airport. The annual event is
held to benefit the National
Multiple Sclerosis Society in
its fight against MS. Those
interested in participating can
register online at
www.nationalmssociety.org/fl
n or by calling 1-800-FIGHT-
MS[344-4867].


Dryer lint
Coffee grounds
Seaweed
Crushed eggshells
Sawdust (use sparingly)

What not to put in it
What to avoid putting in
your compost-is almost more
important than what goes in.
Certain substances can be
toxic and therefore harmful.
Dog, cat and bird feces are a
prime example. Also, avoid
any green materials treated
with pesticides. Other com-
posting no-nos:
Limes
Meat or fish
Bones, grease, fat
Cat litter
Plastic and laminated paper
Diseased or rotting plants
Big stalks or roots (cut or
shred them first)
Treated woods
What else you need to know
Composts need constant
attention. Your pile should be
wet, warm and mixed regular-
ly. (This is why some bins
come with a handle) Like we
said, the perfect recipe is hard
to get right off the bat, but
once you master it, you'll
never look back.
Make sure you keep the pile
moist at all times. If you find
that your scraps are just sit-
ting there after time, it may
be that the pile isn't wet
enough. If the pile smells ran-
cid or like ammonia, it is too
wet or contains an overabun-
dance of green materials. Add
some brown materials and
give the pile a good mixing.
Place the bin in an area that
gets a fair amount of sun, as
you need the container to
heat up to start working. Your
compost should start to heat
up in a day or so to about 150
degrees Fahrenheit. If it does-


rebottling it
Sancerre made from pinot
noir. It is a delightful and
interesting wine that is very
light in color, almost like a
very dark rose. A delicate cher-
ry, strawberry nose with a hint
of smoke. The wine reminded
a little of a fruity Beaujolais
with strawberry and cherry
flavors ard good palate-
cleansing acidity. Try it with
chicken and more flavorful
fish dishes.
Primo Palatum Madiran
1997 ($17). Made from the
obscure tannat grape in the
equally obscure Madiran
region of France near the bor-
der with Spain, this rustic
wine has great depth of flavor
and brawn even after 10
years of bottle aging. Made to
match with the boldest of
foods such as wintry game
dishes like venison or wild
boar. Except for the rough
hewn nature of this wine it
has.the nose and flavors of
many red Bordeaux wines
with black cherry and cassis
flavors and a hint of mint.
Although this wine has the
stuffing to age further, it tastes
great now.
WINE OF THE WEEK
Zaca Mesa Viognier 2006
($18). We're not a big fan of
California viogniers, but we
were impressed with this one
from the Santa Ynez Valley.
Very fragrant and exotic nose
with rich mouth feel.




If you Need it, You Need


the Classifieds


n't, there aren't enough green
materials. Some of the com-
posting bins come with ther-
mometers, but you can buy
one if it doesn't. Just stick it
in the center of the pile to see
if your mixture is correct.
Turn the pile every few days
and keep an eye on your com-
post. Does it look like stuff is
breaking down? Is it warm? If
the answers are yes, in a few
weeks you will have an abun-
dance of rich soil on your
hands.
Once complete, sift through
the soil. This can be done by
hand.or with a store-bought
sifter. Remove any pieces that
haven't broken down and put
them back into the bin. Leave
a little bit of the finished
product at the bottom of the
bin to get the new batch
going.

Going, going, gone!
Starting a compost means
that you can truly call your-
self a recycler. You'll have less
garbage and a great garden to
show for it. The most impor-
tant thing to remember is not
to get frustrated if you don't
immediately produce rich soil.
A little practice is all it takes


for you to get the composting
mixture going.

Pet safety through the seasons


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
As the seasons change, so do
the opportunities for you and
your pet to have fun together.
With the arrival of cooler morn-
ings and evenings, for example,
you may be able to take your pet
outdoors more than you have
during the hot, steamy summer
months.
But the change of seasons
may also present some haz-
ardous conditions for your pet,
according to www.veterinarye-
mergencyservice.com.
With safety in mind, here are
some things to keep in mind as
summer gives way to autumn:
Fishing tackle that is made
to lure fish can also attract cats,
dogs and birds especially if a
bit of bait is left on the hook.
This can prove to be very darn-
gerous, because hooks are usual-
ly barbed and can not be backed
out until the barb is removed.
Never try to remove these
hooks on your own. Seek veteri-
nary help and sedation to pre-
vent tissue trauma.
Pickup trucks are a favorite
place for dogs to ride. They love
to feel the cool crisp wind in
their faces that fall brings, but
uncovered truck beds are a very
dangerous place for your pet.
Sudden stops or turns can
throw your pet from the truck,
and a major injury could occur
from the fall or by being hit by
an oncoming car.
Additionally, there is a lot of
debris and insects moving at'


high velocities that can cause
eye injuries. It is best if your pet
is secured inside your truck.
* *
As the weather attracts more
dogs and their owners to dog
parks, the parks get crowded,
presenting some dangerous con-
ditions for your pet. Take some
precautions:
When in public or around
other dogs, keep your dog close
to you.
Introduce your pet to oth-
ers, watching for their respons-
es. If any aggression is shown,
take your pet to another place in
the park.
Never try to break up a fight
by getting in the middle of it.
Use leashes or water to separate
the dogs.
If you or your pet gets a bite
wound, seek medical help to
prevent infection.
Some things in or around the
house may cause harm to your
family pet, such as:
Cocoa bean mulch
Chocolate (semi-sweet and
dark), the higher the level of
cocoa the greater the toxicity
Macadamia nuts
Grapes and raisins
Baby food containing onion
powder or garlic
Alcohol
Almonds
Caffeine
Coffee grounds
Raw cloves of garlic
Mushrooms


Onions
Tobacco
Household cleaners and
chemicals
Lawn chemicals (keep your
pet off newly fertilized lawns for
24 hours). If your pet ingests
lawn chemicals, contact your
veterinarian or an emergency
veterinary service.
** 0
As the weather cools and the
humidity drops, you may be
tempted to open windows in
your house, condo or apartment
to let in the fresh air. Be sure to
keep screens or protective bars
on your windows to prevent
your pets from escapes or falls.
And bird owners should make
sure their feathered friends are
protected from drafts.
Never leave your pet unat-
tended in your car. While sum-
mer can be a particularly deadly
season, for leaving a pet in a car,
there is no good season. And
don't lull yourself into a false
sense of security by leaving the
window open. It never takes
long for heat to rise and your
pet to suffer from heat stroke.
Heat stroke is very serious,
and you should always seek
medical care. It does not always
take much on a warm day for a
dog or cat to experience heat
stroke. If your pet experiences a
heat related issue, cover the pet
with a cool wet towel and trans-
port him or her to your veteri-
narian immediately.

Hidden rooms



safe and fun


Everyone has something to hide.
Whether it's a coin collection, guns,
silver, artwork or just plain junk,
you sometimes need a place to store
things that's out of plain view. That's
the beauty of a hidden room.
In Victorian times, furniture was often
made with hidden drawers and compart-
ments. I have an old Victorian dresser
that has a hidden drawer perfect for hid-
ing silver and other precious items. The
beauty of a hidden room is that only
you know about it and access isn't readi-
ly available.
The closet
Recently, I spoke with a client about a
house plan. The plan included an
upstairs closet in a guest room that she
said would be used for storage and items
such as her husband's guns. I suggested
that instead of a normal door, she might
want to consider concealing the
entrance to this room with a bookcase
on a piano hinge. Years ago, I worked in
a custom cabinet shop that made fine
cabinetry for upscale homes. One of the
items we frequently worked on was cabi-
nets with hidden features. We also creat-
ed lots of pivoting bookshelves that
opened into a secret room.
Safety first
Hidden rooms are great for storing
valuables and they are also good choices
for anyone who keeps precious objects
or cash on hand. A hidden room can
often be undetectable. Few people would
move bookshelves to look for a safe the
way they would a painting. There are
even companies now that build book-
shelves just for the purpose of conceal-
ing a room. Several of these companies
are on the Internet. A quick search on
hidden rooms will reveal a number of
these firms. Each one typically has more
than one type of cabinet style.
Do.it yourself
Building a bookshelf into a doorway
for a hidden room effect is not very
hard. A simple bookshelf with trim is
easy to make and can be mounted on a
door opening with a piano hinge. A
piano hinge has very small hinges that
run the length of the doorway versus the
three large hinges that doors are typical-
ly mounted on. If you want ideas on
how to build your own hidden room
bookshelves, secretdoorways.com has,a
book to show you how.

Function
There are many uses for hidden rooms
besides just storage. Sometimes it's to
hide an eye sore, such as an air exchang-
er for your air conditioning and heating
system. Another fun option is have a
hidden room in a child's room to make a
fun and mysterious space.
If you like technology, but don't like
the look of it, a hidden room would
make the perfect "James Bond" spy
office and technology center. Outfitted
with computers and hi tech equipment,
you could surf the web for hours on end
without having to put all that hardware
out in the open.
Want to move a candlestick to reveal
your hidden room automatically? Then,
check out hiddenpassageway.com. This
company creates automated doors and
staircases like something out of a horror
film.
Hidden rooms have become very pop-
ular in recent years as people want to
create safer homes and worry that others
may be able to locate their valuables
that aren't carefully stored and hidden. I
once lived in a home with a hidden
staircase. No one could figure out how
to get upstairs and that made it quite a
novelty. If you're building a home, work
some hidden features into it. You can
have hiding pl~Atebuitt'ihto cabinets
and furniture and easily create your
own hidden room with a bookshelf in a
weekend. You might be surprised at how
much you have to hide or want to keep
away from prying eyes.

It looks like a standard book-
shelf, but this bookshelf moves
and folds in the middle to reveal
a hidden room. Hidden rooms
are becoming more popular .....
today and more people are put-
ting hidden features into their
home for added safety and
,security.

PIMPLE MAGIC Even at
my age, I'll occasionally get a
pimple. To deal with this, I
soak a cotton ball in some.
apple cider vinegar and dab it
on the blemish for a few min-
utes. If I do this a few times a
day, the pimple dries up and
goes away within a day or two.
Sandy R.
GREAT GRATING I always
find it quite messy to grate
cheese. To cut down on my
clean-up, I place both the
grater and the cheese in a plas-
tic storage bag. I then grate the
cheese right in the bag. All the
cheese falls into the bag, and
my countertops stay clean.
Kristen V.
HOT STUFF When I make a
dip for vegetables or chips, I
always like to season the dip


with some chipotle peppers or
pickled jalapeno chilies. The
best way to do this is to take a
little of the pepper or chilie
and place it into the well of a
garlic press. Then I just squeeze
it into my dip. It also works for
spicing up sauces. Merilee K.
CLEAN MUSHROOMS It's
never a good idea to wash
mushrooms. Mostly made up
of water themselves, they soak
that up like little sponges and
won't do well in your recipes.
Instead, you should simply
brush or wipe them off. I use a
clean, soft toothbrush to do
the job there's no need to buy
a special brush. Sarah N.

Flat tires.

No longer a valid excuse for being late.


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

Here's something people in Kansas already know


No better place to
go than our
Beaches
Leaning back in his chair,
he said, "Why don't we
come here more often?"
He read my mind. It was the
perfect evening in a spectac-
ular setting that calmed my
day and soothed my mind.
And it was only a couple
miles from home. Why did-
n't we come here weekly or
even daily?
No, it wasn't the
Homestead or one of the
other Beaches restaurants or
pubs. It was, in fact, the
Beach itself.
With fold-up arm chairs
and some current reading
material, I can have an idyl-
lic evening; an evening to
which northern state's people
want to escape. We all take
for granted so much of every
day life and we get so set in a
routine that we wear blind-
ers.
I talk to people all the time
who moved to the Beach to
fulfill their Parrot Head
dreams and then haven't


LINDA

actually gone out to the
Beach in years.
Do people in Jackson Hole,
Wyoming, forget to look in
rapture at the Grand Tetons?
Do Hawaiians stay inside
surfing the TV or the net?
Perhaps it is human nature
to overlook or under-enjoy
that which is nearby.
My advice is take a chair
and go out to our Beach.
From reading and daydream-
ing to people-watching, there
is no better place for miles
around. We plan to go there
more often ourselves.
