Vol. 45, No. 35 Serving the communities of Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Mayport and Ponte Vedra Beach since 1963


Aesthetic law in AB's sights

The Palms apartments on Mayport
Road have caused the city of Atlantic
Beach to consider a code to regulate
aesthetics, according to an e-mail from
City Attorney Alan Jensen.
At a meeting Monday, commission-
ers plan to discuss possible amend-
ments to the city ordinance to address

problem areas such as The Palms and
other structures.
The meeting will be at 7:15 p.m. at
City Hall, 800 Seminole Road.
Commissioners have expressed con-
cern about the appearance of the for-
mer apartments on Mayport Road, just
north of Atlantic Boulevard. Staff has
been directed to research other cities'
codes to learn if anything could be

as a replacement is found.
His announcement came just minutes
after runoff election results were tallied
and it was reported that Paul Parsons
defeated incumbent Sylvia Simmons to
take seat three on the Commission.
"It has been a great honor, truly, to have

Sea & Sky aims to balance safety and fun

Some limits on access
to ocean during event
Jacksonville Beach police are working
with downtown residents and business
owners to preserve public access while pro-
viding security during Sea and Sky
Spectacular Nov. 2-4.
SPolice Commander Gene Paul Smith told
those attending an organizational meeting
Thursday that the primary goals for the
event include limiting the disruption to
businesses and homeowners in the show
perimeter, maintaining traffic flow and
keeping an eye on public safety.
City staff, police and fire personnel,
Navy officials and special events coordina-

tors fromnthe city of Jacksonville attended
the public meeting at City Hall to detail the
impact on those working or living within
the project area, which is between Beach
Boulevard, AlA, 6th Avenue North and
the ocean.
"Our challenge Post-911 is we always
have to be aware of threats to the public as
well as to the event itself," he said of the
planning being done for the event. "It is
not, necessarily going to be Al-Quaeda
storming the beach. It could be Virginia
Tech. You can see how much damage one
person can do."
Smith said law enforcement officials
have assumed an "upgraded posture" to
ensure that things run smoothly during the
fourth air show to be held at the Beaches.
The event is held every other year at
Jacksonville Beach and draws thousands to

the shoreline. (On alternate 'eiis it is-held
at NAS Jacksonville.)
Additional police officers will be on duty
during the weekend and many shifts will
overlap to ensure that the area is adequate-
ly staffed, Smith said.
Fire and police officials will also coordi-
nate next week to conduct emergency
exercises at the beach.
Paramedics will patrol the crowd on
bicycles to allow for immediate access to a
trauma situation during the Spectacular,
Smith said.
"With crowds this size we can't get one
of the big red trucks down there as quickly
as the bike teams," Smith said. "The-man-
power is massive for something like this.

The Jacksonville Beach
Planning Commission will con-
sider a conditional use request
to allow outdoor seating at an
existing bar at 7 p.m. Monday
in Council Chambers.
Mango's at 602 1st Street N. is
seeking approval to operate an
outside bar and patio area. The
applicant contends the condi-
tional use will correct a techni-
cal oversight that failed to
include the deck in an applica-
tion to renew a liquor license.
The bar exists as a legal non-
conforming, use in the Central
Business District and predates
the policy that drinking estab-
lishments must be approved by
conditional use.
City planning staff has rec-
ommended approval of the
request with the condition that
the owner screen the existing
deck from adjacent properties.

Adding capacity possible

- ROADS, from A-1

Tocknell detailed the updates
to the transportation element of
the 2010 Comp Plan at a public
meeting Wednesday at City Hall
in Jacksonville Beach.
"This is a good opportunity
for the community to take stock
of where it is and where it is
going and how things might
have changed," Tocknell said.
Since the last update was
completed in 1999, Jacksonville
Beach has experienced a flurry
of transportation changes from
the influx of high rise condo-
miniums to major road
improvement projects, he said.
"Every couple years it is neces-
sary to flush the old one out and
and. create new changes to
reflect the current status,"
Tocknell said.
The update also states that
there will be no need for any
more major projects to increase
road capacity in the city once
the widening of Beach
Boulevard is completed and the
realignment of Penman Road
Tocknell credited city officials
for "understanding where you
are and where this community
wants to go."
The plan also monitors the
existing level of bicycle and

pedestrian traffic, the number of
available long term parking
spaces and how well the city's
evacuation routes function, he'
Other changes include replac-
ing existing bus routes with a
trolley service and implement-
ing a ride request service that
will keep empty buses from run-
ning up and down the Beaches.
Future installation of new
hardware is planned to help
monitor traffic conditions and
relay information to motorists
in real time, he said.
"These are good ways to
squeeze more capacity out with-
out adding lanes," Tocknell said.
"When roads are constrained,
we are limited in ways to
increase capacity. These are
viable options."
Grades are assigned to each
state road to identify their spe-
cific service level. Anything
rated F is considered a failed
Tocknell said the future pro-
jections outlined in the comp
plan that show Beach
Boulevard operating as a con-
gested facility in 2008 are
incorrect because the ongoing.
widening is expected to be
complete next year.

Show will restrict area

- SEA & SKY, from A-1

Smith said events like the air
show present a challenge in a
city venue as opposed to a sta-
dium setting, He explained that
there is no way to screen every-
thing coming in and out of the
staging area in the city blocks.
"We have regular traffic, busi-
nesses and residents all in our
show area. We can't put a wall
up and secure all of these
things," he said.
"We are understanding of all
of you who live and work here.
The goal is to make it as smooth
as possible."'
Street closures will begin
Monday, Oct. 29 and will
progress slowly throughout the
week. Practice demonstrations
will be held Friday, Nov. 2 with
the show on Nov. 3 and 4.
Officer Brett Burrell is work-
ing with businesses in the area
to coordinate delivery schedules
leading up to the event. After
Oct. 30, deliveries will be limit-
ed to certain times, Smith said.
"We are going to do our best
to accommodate you," Smith
Pablo Avenue will be desig-
nated the JTA transportation
hub. Visitors will be dropped off
at the site from the park and
from ride locations established
at the TPC Sawgrass.
Passes will be distributed to
residents, business owners and
employees to ensure access dur-
ing the week. A valid drivers

license and check stub will be'
required for employees to enter
the secured zone, Smith said.
"Everyone 'within the inner
perimeter must have a parking
pass," he said. "And everyone is
subject to search. That will be
clearly posted."
Police and Naval volunteers
will also be posted at the beach
walkovers and along portions of
the.beach to keep visitors out of
the dunes.
The air show will not include,
an amphibious assault this year
because of damage to the dune
system during previous shows.
Beach walkovers will be consid-
ered off limits during the show
in the event area. No vessel traf-
fic will be permitted in waters
that are within a mile of the
staging area.
Beachgoers will be able to go
on the sandy area of the beach-
front but going in the ocean
will not be permitted in the

October 19, 2007 Locally Owned and Operated Serving the Beaches since 1963 THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER

The Leader's Opinion

Appoint Simmons

to AB commission

The face of the Atlantic Beach City Commission is chang-
Some observers note that the change will look familiar,
with some former members regaining seats on the 5-mem-
ber board.
John Meserve will replace Don Wolfson in the mayor's
seat. John Fletcher will replace Desmond Waters on the
commission and Paul Parsons will return to replace Sylvia
Simmons. Parsons won a runoff election, capturing 52 per-
cent of the votes to Simmons' 48 percent.
The latest change for the commission came just minutes
after the runoff ballots were counted. Commissioner Jamie
Fletcher cited the need to care for his sick wife and
announced his-plans to resign as soon as a replacement can
be appointed.
Jamie Fletcher has occasionally espoused some unpopular
positions on the commission. That has provoked public
debate in some cases and forced those with opposing views
to cement their, positions with reason and facts.
Whether the issue is tree conservation, public funding for
a civic. event or limiting home construction, debate has
been heated and, frankly, that is how government operates
The public interest is not served by a predictable consen-
sus rubberstamping the same platform.
According to city charter, it will be up to the city com-
mission to appoint a replacement for Jamie Fletcher.
We would recommend that the commission appoint
Sylvia Simmons to fill the seat.-Based on her positions, she
promises to bring a diverse viewpoint to the commission. In
the long run, airing varying viewpoints results in better,
well-considered decisions that can withstand public scruti-
Simmons' recent performance in the polls also indicates
that a sizable percentage of the community would like her
as a representative.
Appointing Simmons to the commission makes sense.

Appoint Daugherty to AB commission

To the editor:
Since the majority of the
Commission and the Voters
supported Districting, wouldn't
it make sense to appoint
Johnathan Daugherty? We
would then. have a
Commissioner that lives West of
Mayport Road. Those citizens
that live West of Mayport Road
consistently complain that they

do not have representation.
This would be a great opportu-
nity for [commissioners] to
show that the desires of the vot-
ers are being met and that the
present Commission is doing all
it can to mend the fences that
seem to now separate many of
our citizenry.

To the editor:
Words are powerful beings,
to be revered and feared. Were
it not the words of Shakespeare
that. made him immortal?
Were it not Niccolo
Machavelli's words that
instilled fear and ruthlessness
into the very souls of future
monarchs and their subjects?
These conglomerations of let-
ters have caused havoc among
the ranks as citizens braced
themselves for Orson Well's
reports of alien warfare to
come true. Such is their valor

as Socrates refuses to flee his
dear.Athens and instead choos-
es to drink the hemlock, and
forfeit his life. If these words
are so powerful, should we not
use them wisely? Many stu-
dents think about that as they
rush to finish that horrid essay
they had for homework. Let
responsible adults chew on
this as they soak in the latest
celebrity gossip. Every word
written or spoken should be
for a purpose noble in virtues.
As was the Declaration of
Independence, or the endear-

ing words of Martin Luther
King, Jr. as he inspired\hope in
the hearts of millions. If a pen
is mightier than the sword,
then the word speaks louder
than deeds. May these words
on this paper prove meaning-
ful and worthwhile. For every
writer of words has a dream
that their words will thrive
through the ages.

One individual should not be able to limit deck bar

To the editor:
A long hot summer has been
made even hotter by the fact
that a local favorite "Deck Bar"
has been closed to the citizens
of this community and the
tourists Who come to enjoy the
ambiance of the beach.
The deck, at Mango's, was
shut down all summer due to
the unsubstantiated allegations..
of a neighbor, David L. Sriith, a
newcomer to the 5th Ave and
1st Street corer.
A single individual imposed
his unjustified prejudice and
unqualified unsubstantiated
assertions against a pre-existing
establishment and stripped the
general public of their right to
enjoy an outdoor drink at the
beach. This is absolutely ludi-
crous, ridiculous and complete-
ly contrary to the "Salt Life"
that Jacksonville Beach wishes
to portray itself as.
Who ever heard of a beach
community that goes out of its
way to shut down the very
decks, outdoor seating and
"Salt Life" philosophy that is its
very existence? Has Daytona
Beach, Miami Beach, Cocoa
Beach, Key West, Pensacola
(need I name every Florida
beach community) shut down
their deck/tiki bars because a
local neighbor has issues with

that bar? No!
Why? Because sitting -out-
doors around a good establish-
ment with good friends, enjoy-
ing the seabreeze and the
downtown beach scene in the
cool of the evening is an essen-
tial aspect of beach life. So why
has David L. Smith forced his
anti-Salt Life agenda upon
Jacksonville Beach? Why have
the local "city officials" pan-
dered to the whims of one iso-
lated property owner and shut
down a once thriving business,
eliminating the very essence of
"Salt Life" philosophy?
Why do Jax Beach City offi-
cials allow for the prejudice of
one citizen to dictate the
morale compass of the beach
community? I agree that there
needs to be an oversight for
"family" protection that do not
wish to view individuals drink-
ing while they practice their
right of beach enjoyment, but
there is a happy medium and
the establishments affected are
not on the boardwalk.
Yes, I agree that each individ-
ual has a voice but should any
single person have the authori-
ty and power to influence gov-
ernment to the extreme that
local businesses lose money
and workers' income is adverse-
ly affected.

Since such favor of voice is
being granted to a "new"
comer, a building which five
years ago was not even in the
locality and has since been
moved to its current location,
then could their be a violation
of due process and maybe the
Florida Sunshine Laws?,
The issues of 5th Ave N and
1st Street could sure use a
review and warrant an investi-
gation, which is to be done at a
public hearing on Oct. 23.
Please help save this Beach
community, please help pre-
serve all that is good with the
"Salt Life" philosophy of Jax
Beach and tell David L. Smith
that his actions are detrimental
to what Jax Beach is and can
ascend to.
Please tell our elected officials
who might have violated
Florida's Sunshine Law that one
individual's complaints do not
prevail over the desire of a
greater proportion of patrons of
these establishments. Nor does
Mr. Smith have the right to
infringe upon a legitimate busi-
ness from doing business as
usual which has been histori-
cally accomplished under a free
capitalist society. Peace.

Voter actions

speak volumes

r he voters have spoken and
Sdistricting, or more appro-
L privately residency require-
ment, passed in Atlantic Beach.
But there was a significant irony
with its passing. Even before the
formal committee process and
the vote by the commission to
place it as a referendum, we
were hearing that this was going
to really help the allegedly
under served people to the west
of Mayport Road.
That theme continued with
the barrage of ranting and ram-
bling letters to the editor. There
were even comparisons of how
much money the city had spent
in one area versus other areas in
past years. The stage was set and
the die was cast. Help for the
people of west of Mayport Road
was coming; they were going to
have their own representative
living in the area if districting
Actually a candidate from a
neighborhood west of Mayport
Road did run in this past elec-
tion for the commission. That
probably was a first since no one
could remember a time when
someone from the Marsh Oaks
section ran for office in Atlantic
Beach. Now there were two
good reasons for the citizens
west of Mayport Road to
turnout; their own candidate
and a vote on districting sup-
posedly designed to help them.
Additionally all of the candi-
dates seemed to spend more
time and focus more attention
to the area than in past elections
because of the publicity the area
received. With all, of that -in
mind did they:show up .at the
polls? No!
While the city as a whole had
an abysmal voter turnout of
22%, the precinct serving the
areas west of Mayport Road
probably set a new low with a
6.9% turnout. People to the east
cared more about them than
they care about themselves
because the other precincts in
Atlantic Beach really carried the
vote. If only 6.9% of the people
are interested enough to take
the five minutes required to
vote, what are the chances of
turning out two or more candi-
dates for the commission from
the, area? The bleeding ,hearts
who pushed districting will say
they just don't turn out because
they are so downtrodden.
Baloney! They just don't care so
we are supposed to care for
them; and that is the significant
I have a theory that a malcon-
tent of the west was so active
because he figures he can run
for the commission unopposed
in the first district election and
given the level of interest over
there, he probably can. What if
no one runs? Then according to
the laws of the city, the city
commission would -appoint
someone to a four year term. If I
remember the governing code
correctly, there would be no res- -
idency requirement in that
appointment. Have we
enhanced the process? It
remains to be seen but my hope
is that if there is no value to it;
we will fix it just as St. Johns
County has done with a similar
I know that the real success in
getting attention and action
from a city commission hap-
pens best with neighborhood
action. When people petition
their government with a cause
or need, manifested by a strong
turnout at commission meet-
ings, they usually get the atten-
tion and .help they seek.
Opening Dormer Road at the
treatment plant to give residents
access to the eastern part of
Atlantic Beach and sidewalks on
north Seminole Road are but
two examples in the past of suc-
cess brought about by citizen
action. I also know that a city as
small as Atlantic Beach requires
all city commissioners to take
responsibility for serving the
whole community. Hopefully
that will not change with dis-
The outgoing mayor upon
hearing the outcome of the dis-
tricting vote allegedly was heard
to say, justice is served! Really?
For whom?

Ponte Vedra Beach. Zebroski was nominated for a gardening award by Ocean Palms teacher Penny Kennedy, and she won third
place in the category of education. The win gives Kennedy $500 to spend on supplies for Zebroski's gardening program, which she
takes to several schools in the Beaches area.

Award-winning gardener helps schools
Award-winning gardener helps schools

Eileen Zebroski of the Ribault
Garden Club in Jacksonville
Beach says she isn't a master gar-
dener. But Ocean Palms kinder-
garten teacher Penny Kennedy
begs to differ.
Kennedy's kids and those in
other classes at Ocean Palms, as
well as at Ponte Vedra-Palm
Valley/Rawlings and Discovery
Montessori in Jacksonville
Beach, are longtime beneficiar-
ies of Zebroski's multifaceted
gardening skills.
Zebroski's curriculum this
year will benefit classes at Ocean
Palms and PVPV/Rawlings, as
well as classes at Discovery
The curriculum meets the
state standards for science for
kindergarten classes.
With Zebroski at the helm,
the Ribault Garden Club pro-
gram began at Discovery
Montessori and PVPV nine years
ago and at Ocean Palms four
.years ago.
The program is underwritten
partly through the- Garden
Crusader Award, which .began

in 2001. Each year there are
three winners in four categories:
education, restoration, urban
renewal and feeding the hungry.
Kennedy nominated Ribault

cation, and it won third place
and $500. Zebroski is buying
ladybugs, worms and special
"She always comes prepared
with the materials I don't have
the funds to procure," said
Kennedy. "She brings us materi-
als for crafts, for soil. She has a
curriculum that spans the year."
The program's spring phase
will be entomology.
"Bees, ladybugs, dragonflies,
ants. If you live in Florida, you
need to know about insects,"
said Zebroski, who trains parent
"She's freed me up to really
work with the children and to
enhance the curriculum so they
can all be successful out there,"
said Kennedy. "They get to tend

which is something they don't

Zebroski said of the class cur-
riculum at Ocean Palms that
started Friday.
Worms are also used to teach
children about the phases of
"We buy earthworms. I've got
300 children in this program. I
don't have 300 worms every
year from my garden," she said.
"They're encouraged to poke
and prod, then we have a series
of experiments to do. What will
they eat? How will they respond
to light and dark? How do they
respond to cold?"
Containers are set up in layers
of sand and soil, after which the
children put their worms inside.
"We put in food for them to
eat, we put them in the dark for
the weekend. When the kids
come back Monday, they see
tunnels, they see what the
worms have done. They under-
stand, visually, that worms are
going to take decaying matter
from the top, create tunnels,
help fertilize, help with the
water and aerate."
Subsequent aspects of the pro-
gram involve plants.

es will harvest some of their fall

FHS gets new benches for environmental achievement

The Keep Jacksonville Beautiful Commission
will present Duncan U. Fletcher High School with
new benches made out of recycled materials as
part of the "Environmental Achievement" awards
each school received at the Mayor's
Environmental lunch.
The benches will be presented Friday, Oct 19 at

also be presented to Keman Middle School for the

"We plant a garden in our
sneakers, then we decorate the
old shoes and the children take

end of that class, that they're
really gardeners. They've

They've done bulbs.
"And now they're giving a gift

S CODES, from A-1

Some other cities, such as
Boca Raton and Palm Beach,
have language in their codes
that specifies once refurbish-
ment or demolition begins,
work must commence within a
certain time period, according
to Code Enforcement Officer
Alex Sherrer.
The Palms was previously
cited for minor code violations
such as tall grass, but there are
no provisions in the current
city code that allow the city to
take any further action, City
Manager Jim Hanson said at a
previous meeting.
The property, owned by
Chris Hionides who could not
be reached for comment, has
been in a state of partial refur-
bishment for several months .
Some structures had been con-
demned by a former,city build-
ing inspector before it was pur-
chased, according to Sherrer.
The city can consider adopt-
ing an ordinance based on aes-
thetics, according to Jensen,
but he cautioned that the ordi-
nance needs to be carefully
worded. He said such an ordi-
nance would most likely fall
under the city's "nuisance" cat-

%Ihat's Being Considered:
*Staff has also researched
International Property
Maintenance Code, which pro-
vides more stringent guidelines
as to what is considered
"unsightly" and what consti-
tutes a condemned structure,
according to Code Enforcement
Officer Alex Shener

*The code is used by many
cities, including lacksonville,
and outlines certain property
standards that must be main-
tained, such as requiring a struc-
ture to ha\e a roof and provid-
ing specific cntena for buildings,
according to City Planner Erika
"I believe the city should
proceed with much caution in
fashioning such an ordinance,
make the ordinance as defini-
tive as possible and establish
specific criteria regarding what
constitutes an eyesore, what
the aesthetic appeal is that the
city is maintaining and what
appearance the city is trying to
protect," Jensen said.
Jensen also said that a work-
shop will probably be neces-
sary as well as input from vari-
ous boards and staff.

Tour Rome, tour the churches

The history of the city of
Rome is so intertwined with
the Roman Catholic Church
that it is almost impossible to
walk anywhere without being
within sight of a church.
On a recent trip to Italy, my
husband Michael and I spent
four days in Rome. Among the
sites we visited there and in
Vatican City were several
churches and related muse-
At least one and sometimes
more than one church can be
found in most Roman Piazzas
(or squares), large or small.
During the day most church-
es were open and a step inside
was like being far removed
from the crowded and noisy
streets of Rome.
Each church, regardless of
size, was uniquely beautiful.
Many had connections with
Rome's ancient history, they
often contained paintings or
sculptures by some of the
world's greatest artists, or were
designed by the masters of
Italian architecture.
The Pantheon, originally
built around 25 B.C. as a tem-
ple to all of the Roman gods,
has been a Catholic church
since the early 7th century.
The church houses the tomb of
the Renaissance artist Raphael.
Only steps away from the
Pantheon is Santa Maria Sopra
This church was built over
the ruins of an ancient temple
to the goddess Minerva.
Among the works of art con-


trained in this church is
Michelangelo's statue of Christ
the Redeemer and frescos by
Filippino Lippi.
As we walked in another
direction from the Pantheon,
we found a church named La
Maddalena in an adjacent
piazza. The beautiful facade of
this small church is in the style
of the Baroque period.
San Carlino alle Quattro
Fontane, designed by the mas-
ter architect Francesco
Borromini, is another church
in the Baroque style. Buildings
connected to the church are
the cloister and convent built
for' the order that commis-
sioned the church.
We also visited three of the
major churches of the Catholic
Church; St. Peter's Basilica in
Vatican City, St. John Lateran,
and St. Maria Maggiore.
The massive doors into the
main cathedral of. the city of
Rome, St. John Lateran, are'
the original doors of the
Roman Senate. Large statues of
the apostles are one of the
most compelling features of
this church.
The first church at St. Maria
Maggiore was built in the 4th
Century A.D. The church
standing today has a baroque
facade, three interior naves,
and the tallest bell tower in
We devoted an entire day to
Vatican City, waiting in a long
line and passing through metal
detectors before entering St.
Peter's Basilica.
No ticket or admission was
required to go into the church.
After waiting in the rain, it was

awe inspiring to simply walk
into St. Peter's.
Once inside, people are per-
mitted to walk at will in any
direction to view the interior
of the basilica.
Mass was being held in one
of the chapels, priests were
available for the sacrament of
Reconciliation, and a chapel
was set aside for quiet prayer.
However, no one was direct-
ed or encouraged to partici-
pate. The religious activities
were available for anyone who
wanted to either observe or
Among the most interesting
and unexpected works of art in
St. Peter's were the large stat-
ues and tombs of popes. There
were also glass altars holding
the remains of some popes.
The altar containing the
remains of Pope John XXXIII
had a constant stream of peo-
ple stopping to gaze at the
man who convened the
Second Vatican Council in the
Almost everyone in St.
Peter's seemed to spend a few
minutes in. front of
Michelangelo's Pieta. This
masterpiece is only one of
many by Michelangelo and
other artists contained in St.
Peter's and the Vatican
The museums in St. Peter's
Basilica and the Vatican
Museum also house items of
religious significance, addi-
tional tombs of popes, and
objects of historical signifi-

tickets for the Vatican Museum
which includes the Sistine
Even after several hours in
the museum, we felt that we
could have spent much more
time there and still not have
seen or had the time to appre-
ciate everything.
In the Sistine Chapel, visi-
tors are permitted to linger for
as long as they want and even
sit down as chairs become
Frescos on the walls by vari-
ous artists depict scenes from
the Bible. The Chapel is proba-
bly most well know for
Michelangelo's paintings on
the ceiling and his painting of
the Last Judgement.

Jones falls

from grace

and track

suffers as a

result of it

W we're long past the
point of cynicism in
sports. Yet no matter
how many times facts reveal
that our sports heroes are
flawed human beings suscepti-
ble to the same foibles that
can bedevil the rest of us,
we're shocked.
As fans, it seems we're des-
perate for role models and
when one comes along that
fills the bill for beauty, charis-
ma, performance and the per-
ception of pure joy derived
from the dedication of a life to
sports, we buy it hook, line
and sinker. -
That's why news of Marion
Jones' fall from grace was so
disturbing. Yes, there had been
rumors and suspicion of the
track star's use of performance-
enhancing drugs for years, but
her constant and vehement
denials seemed genuine.
Faced with jail time in a
bank fraud case involving ex-
boyfriend and banned sprinter
Tim Montgomery, however,
Jones finally had to admit the
truth: She cheated her way to
five medals in the 2000
Summer Olympics and lied to
federal investigators about
ingesting anabolic substances.
At one time, Jones was
America's sweetheart, gracing
the covers of Sports Illustrated,
Time and Vogue magazines. A
multi-million dollar contract
with Nike, six-figure appear-
ance fees at European track
meets and sponsorship deals
enabled her to build a $2.5
million mansion in Apex,
North Carolina, close to where
she trained at N.C. Stafe.
But she also made horren-
dous mistakes. First husband
CJ. Hunter, a shot putter, test-
ed positive for steroids at the
2000 Sydney Games. Jones
dutifully stood-by his side,
while denying any knowledge
of her husband's drug use.
Divorce soon followed.
Her next romance was
sprinter Tim Montgomery,
who became the world's fastest
human by following a doping
plan developed by BALCO. He
was busted and banned from
track, but also got Marion
involved in a check-writing
scam that ultimately led to the
plea bargain in which she was
forced to admit drug use.
It's also widely understood
that a financial dispute
between Jones and coach
Trevor Graham led him to
mail a syringe of designer.
steroid THG to the U.S. Anti-
Doping Agency, the first
thread in unraveling the whole
BALCO scandal.
BALCO founder Victor
Conte went on 20/20 to tell a
national television audience
how he taught Marion to
inject steroids and human
Growth hormone.
Today, Marion Jones is broke
her North Carolina home
was foreclosed on last year -
and track's governing bodies
will go after hundreds of thou-
sands in prize money she won
but no longer has. Jones-has
also been forced to return the.
three gold and two bronze
Olympic medals she won.
Jones may soon trade the
form-fitting red, white and
blue Lycra track suits she wore
on the track for a looser,
orange prison-issued jumpsuit.
Jones will face sentencing on
perjury charges next month
and could receive three
months in the gray bar hotel.
There are lessons to be
learned from Jones' protracted,
very public fall from grace, but
is anyone willing to listen?
The sport of track has surely
suffered another blow from an
athlete who clearly valued
green over gold.

The Fletcher High boys golf
team equalled the girls per-

Reynolds adds to legend of Fletcher coaches

Ican honestly say that I grad-
uated from Fletcher High
School with very little edu-
cation about the school's
athletic history, that is.
In the school's 71-year histo-
ry, there have only been seven
head coaches for varsity foot-
ball, including some of the
more famous Beach names like
Ish Brant and Jack Taylor, for
whom the Fletcher stadium is

now named.
While Brant was a huge fig-
ure in Neptune Beach for more
than just coaching, it was
Taylor that wouJd go on to
become the top win-producing
football coach in the Senators'
Apparently, I don't know
Jack. Until a few years ago, he
was just some strange name
above the scoreboard at
Fletcher. Figured he was some

Fletcher High head coach Joe Reynolds celebrates with his
team following last Friday night's victory over Forrest. Reynolds
broke the school's coaching record for all-time football victories.

big-spending booster of some
sort. Never thought for a
minute he was the football
coach that most of my teach-
ers in high school grew up
around. Shows how much
attention I paid back then.
But current Fletcher head
football coach Joe Reynolds
knows Jack, though you'll
never hear him call him any-
thing but "Coach." And now
Reynolds has found himself in
a common place with Taylor
- on top of the all-time W
column for Senators head
,In five days' time, Reynolds
guided his grid squad to two
victories, tying and then sur-
passing the mark of 106 wins
held by Taylor since he left the
school in 1974.
If Brant was such a well-
known figure, why wasn't the
field named in his honor?
"I think he should have a
school named after him,"
Reynolds said of Brant. "Not
that having a stadium in your
name isn't a great honor. He
was so successful in what he
did in life. It's just amazing he
was a football coach here. But
I think he deserves a higher
So the stadium's name went
to the guy with the most.wins.
A few years before Taylor left
the Fletcher sidelines,
Reynolds was a star linebacker
for the Senators, receiving
awards from the Jacksonville
Quarterback Club for Lineman
of the Year and The Times-
Union Defensive Player of the
Year in his senior season in
1971. In the three years of var-
sity football at Fletcher,
Reynolds absorbed what he
could about his coach, whom
he viewed as someone that
was "bigger than life," while
growing up at the Beaches.
The coaches have very few

similarities aside from winning
games for the Purple and
"We have great love for our
kids," Reynolds said. "We like
what we do a lot and we love
our players. That's the only
way we're alike."
According to Reynolds,
Taylor was a strong personality
and a strict disciplinarian as a
Senator coach.
Reynolds attended the
University of Florida on a foot-
ball scholarship after high
school, where he would con-
tinue to learn under then-
Gator coach Doug Dickey,
another important figure in
Reynolds' life.
After graduating from UF,
Reynolds returned to the
Beaches and joined the
Fletcher football staff in 1976
as defensive coach. When he
returned, Taylor had stepped
down as the football coach,
though he was still a dean, so
Reynolds never got to coach
with him.
Reynolds worked his way
through the coaching staff at
Fletcher, including a stint as
the head basketball coach

from 1979-1982 where he won
a conference championship
and would learn from another
mentor, Jim Daugherty.
Reynolds took on the head
junior varsity football job from
1980-82 and went back to var-
sity in 1984 as a defensive
coordinator until 1989. In
1990, Reynolds started the
position he still holds today.
Seventeen years later,
Reynolds now holds the record
for most wins at Fletcher by a
And Taylor is apparently fine
with that.
"Coach Taylor called me to
congratulate me after the Ed
White game (when Reynolds
tied the mark)," he said. "He
was just as thrilled as Fwas. If
someone's going to break his
record, it might as well be
someone that played for him."
The record was never on the
to-do list for Reynolds when
he took the job. In fact, he
thought the win mark was
quite higher, like in the 200-
plus range.
Now, there's no telling what
the new record will become
once Reynolds steps down in
after the 2009 season, his 20th
year as a Senator coach.
Maybe one day the school
will honor his service like it
did for legendary coaches in
the pasf. And perhaps one day
the Senators will play on Joe
Reynolds Field at Jack Taylor
Reynolds admits that being
honored is one of those things
he hasn't thought much
about. Still, in the way that
Taylor was viewed in his days,
it wouldn't hurt to one day
honor a larger-than-life figure
from whom an entire genera-
tion of Beaches residents
learned how to play the game
of football and love the sport
as well.

October 28, and at least one
local surfer, Charley Hajek,
will take part.
The event will be held at
Huntington Beach Pier, Calif.
Traveling from the East
Coast is seasoned competitor
Hajek. He is waxing up his
surfboard once again to com-
pete in the U.S. Champion-
ships for the fourth time in
the last eight years.
In the past, he has finished
second in the U.S..finals three
times in a row. This year he's
out to win earn a first-place

Charley has been compet-
ing for more than 20 years on
the East and West coast of the
"I love to surf contests," he
said recently. "Its part of my
Hajek said he is really look-
ing forward to winning the
U.S. Championships Senior's
division. It's the only event
he's never won first place.
In his words, Charley is
"really stoked" on his support
from sponsors Oakley, Nixon,
Surf Tech, and Cobian. Last
but certainly not least, he val-
ues his friends and family
who have shown their sup-
port for his love of surfing.
Hajek has also won the East
Coast Championships three
different times as well as the
Southeast Regionals.
Additionally, Charley has fin-
ished first in his district
numerous times.
This past year, Gnarly
Charley finished third in his
district. He then went on to
the southeast regional cham-
pionships at New Smyrna
Beach, Fla. in April 2007
where the waves were ranging
from six- to eight-foot faces
with choppy conditions.
Charley finished sixth over-
all in the southeast champi-
onships with a broken arm .
He chose not to surf the
finals and took sixth place
Hajek then qualified for the
East Coast championships
held at Cape Hatteras, North
Carolina last month. There he
finished a respectable second
place in the senior men's
division which punched his
ticket for the U.S. Surfing
Championships in California.

Shelby's hosting Solomon exhibit

Shelby's, Coffee Shoppe is showcasing
the photographic works of Atlantic
Beach resident Jay Solomon this month.
The untitled exhibit runs through
Nov. 8 at 200 First Street, Neptune
According to his bio, Solomon traces
his artistic lineage to "a great-grandfa-
ther- wi\ --pele c4a4iz ed In gold leaf as a
sign hainter, but left'bthind classicall)
inspired still life oil paintings."
With a father who operated movie the-
atres and mother who painted and
taught ceramics, Solomon learned early
on to appreciate the visual image.
Said Solomon: "One of [my] earliest
impressions of art as "art" was a large
black-and-white photograph of birch
trees and their shadows in snow which
hung in the front room," of their north-
ern Ohio home, he said.

Solomon credits his vision and percep-
tion of things around him to the films
he saw growing up at his dad's movie
He said his "understanding of light,
color and composition was molded by a
regionally known watercolorist" who
offered art classes to young people in her
home on Saturday mornings.
Upon receiving his first camera a
Brownie -r- In his pre-teen years,
Solomon said he ventured out at night
during a Iheal\ snol fall to take photos
"b) street light."
"The thrill of capturing those shaky
images never left," added Solomon,
whose "constant, off-duty companion"
became a medium format, twin-lens
reflex camera.
Art was his passion, but Solomon also
realized the importance of education.
For more than 30 years, the Kent State
University graduate worked in broadcast
journalism and another decade in public

He directed radio/TV news depart-
ments in Columbus, Ohio, San Antonio,
Texas, Miami and Jacksonville.
Solomon capped his journalism career
as a news director at a former
Jacksonville TV station. He formerly did
public relations work at St. John &
Solomon is still a man of many hats
with a limited consultancy in
media/community relations and crisis
management. He is a treetance writer
and does voiceover work through his
private company "Image & Word."
But his main focus is photography.
"Compelling images are almost every-
where if you only look," Solomon said.
He said "he loves to create composi-
tions of the 'little moments' we often
walk by, as well as the spectrum of beau-
tiful subjects that nature and man pro-
vide." For more details, call Shelby's at


'Boss' returns

While Bruce
Springsteen's two
most recent studio
albums (2005's mostly acoustic
"Devils & Dust" and-2006's
country-tinged folk project
"We Shall Overcome: The
Seeger Sessions") were satisfy-

blown rocker mode with the E
Street Band. He has returned

Released this month,
"Magic" is Springsteen's first
studio album with the E
Streeters since "The Rising"
(2002). "Magic" finds
Springsteen and the band
doing what they do best cre-
ating musical slices of work-
musical vignettes, performed
with enthusiastic vigor.
"Magic" breaks a bit of new
ground stylistically, while still
sounding like an E Street Band
album Springsteen knows
what he's doing, and is stick-
ing pretty close to his tried
and true formula. "Livin' In
The Future," for instance, is
cut from the same E Street
cloth as 1975's "Tenth Avenue
Freeze-Out," with a driving
beat and soaring saxophone
But he does manage to
sneak in a little something dif-
ferent here and there. "Girls In

Busy time of year for certain plants

A wasn't the weekend
absolutely beauti-
ful? Those cool tem-
peratures and clear skies, on
Saturday were just what the
doctor ordered.
Fall is finally on its way. I
realized that I gave you
chores for the lawn and land-
scape, as well as some fall
color in shrubs, but today I
need to finish the chore list
for vegetables, fruits and
flowers for this month.
We are in a busy time of
year for these plants, and if
your lawn is driving you
crazy, maybe it would help to
get into a different mood
with some easy vegetables or
flowers which are good for
the fall.
I will tackle vegetables first,
though I must admit I do not
grow them.
I did grow way too many
of them years ago while liv-
ing in Maine, and truthfully,
I think it burned me out. The
only types I even grow when
I'm in New Hampshire are
rhubarb and a few easy herbs



like parsley and mint. I could
write a book about the six
years of growing enough veg-
etables to feed the world (or
so it seemed), and if I am so
blessed, I'd prefer never to
venture into it again.
Now, with such an enthusi-
astic, positive approach how
can I ever convince you that
you might want to grow
them here and that in fact,
you might take pleasure in it.

You might even have many
ready for harvest at
Thanksgiving if you act right
away, and if you have chil-
dren, they might get a big
kick out of knowing that
they have contributed to the
Thanksgiving feast with their
patch of beans or squash.
And, vegetables can be grown
in containers which makes
them even more appealing
for some folks.
The key to growing any
vegetables at this time of year
is in the selection, and this
depends on whether you
want a relatively quick har-
vest (i.e. by Thanksgiving), or
if you want fresh vegetables
all "winter." Since we are
already into the middle of
October, we are looking at
about 45 days for harvest if
the prior option is what you
want; 90 or more days until
harvest will be another batch
of different vegetables.
Therefore, reading the label


that gave him the fuel to
chase the fire.
"I'm looking for something
cool. I'm living in Dallas right
now," Balsamo said in a tele-
phone interview Wednesday.
"I'm not really digging the
Texas vibe. That is why I want
to come home."
Balsamo, 34, has been off
the road for six weeks but just
returned to Jacksonville
Tuesday for the band's first
headlining tour in support of
the current album "The Open
Door" next Thursday at the
Jacksonville Memorial Arena.
He co-wrote many of the

songs on the album with ethe-
real front woman and group
founder Amy Lee, a process
that strengthened Balsamo's
commitment to the band -
and the band's dedication to
him at a time when the
guitarist would need it the
"I finished the guitar tracks
on a Saturday. That Monday I
had a stroke," he said. The
entire left side of Balsamo's
body was paralyzed by the

New York nightclub manager Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) has turned his back on the family business: police work. But the.
nightclub where he works is a target of investigation by his brother (Mark Wahlberg) in the crime thriller "We Own The Night." The
R-rated film co-stars Eva Mendes and Robert Duvall.

Clooney overacts in 'Michael Clayton'

By now you've heard that .
"Michael Clayton" stars
George Clooney. But for
a huge stretch of the movie,
he gets shunted aside via the
overacting of Tom .
Wilkinson plays Arthur
Edens, a high-priced lawyer.
Edens' firm is representing a
corporation.whose pollution
has killed hundreds of mid-
westerners. Edens has con-
centrated on nothing but
this case for six years,, know-
ing that he's defending a
guilty party, and finally he.
cracks. At a deposition: hear-
ing, Edens strips and runs
naked through a Milwaukee
Oh, and Edens is bipolar
and has gone off his meds.
This is what is known as an
actor's field day.
Wilkinson begins the
movie with a verbose, manic
monologue that sounds like .
Jack Lemmon trying to sell

swamp land in "Glengarry
Glen Ross."
From there, he
never...lets...up. The point of
the movie-is that Edens is
passionate about finally
uncovering the truth. But all
we get out of it is that
Wilkinson is really hungry
for an Academy Award.
Where does George
Clooney fit into this? He
plays the title character, one
of the firm's fixers who is
trying to get Edens under

control. Along the way,
Michael Clayton realizes that
he's no longer any more
capable of lying than Edens
Fair enough. Except that
the movie gets bogged down
in minute details of Clayton's
life that really don't add
much'to the, story. Clayton
, tried tq start:,a tavern, lost :
his shirt,-and now must pay
off the lease before bad
things happen to him.
Clayton is divorced and
sees his son only on week-
ends. He has an alcoholic
brother who can't get his act
together. None of this does a
bit to further either the plot
or Clayton's character.
It doesn't help that at some
points, Clooney seems to be, out-overact
The Clayton backstory rep-
resents the movie's main
debit: It spends way too
much time on extraneous
details. Tilda Swinton plays

one of the nasty corpora-
tion's pawns. We see an
awful lot of her preening and
prepping for each corporate
meeting, to the point where
we just wish she'd get dressed
and get on with it.
And the movie begins with
a we'll-explain-it-later pro-
logue, a gimmick that
worked splendidly in .
Clooney's "Out of Sight" but
adds nothing to the proceed-
ings here. The movie's filler .
could have been edited out,
and the movie would be a
half-hour shorter and still.
tell the same story.
The best actor is Sydney
Pollack as Clayton's high-
ranking confidante. He just
gets in there and does his job
- something you wish both
Clooiey and his character
would do.
"Michael Clayton" is rated
R for much adult language
and intense imagery..

Jolson's 'Jazz Singer' now 3-disc DVD

despite its place in
movie history, "The
Jazz Singer" (1927)
must be approached with a'
caution usually reserved for
radioactivity. Definitely rent
this one before you invest in
the three-disc DVD set.
The backstory is better
than anything in the movie.
The Warner, on'
the brink of folding, risked
investing in a sound-on-film
system in the silent era. The
movie was based on a popu-
lar Broadway play. The star-
ring role went to Al Jolson, a
singer whose.wild popularity
was the '20s version of
Beatlemania. -
The movie was not the first
"talkie," and it is largely dia-

logue-free. Jolson's singing
was the initial sound 'draw.
But the movie's success is
believed to have come from
Jolson's improvised dialogue,
where twice he declares, "You
ain't heard nothing' yet!' -
five words that changed.
movie history.
So much, for the interesting
part now we come to the
movie's story. It's a creaky
conflict between good Jewish
boy Jakie Rabinowitz (Jolson)
and his cantor father. Papa
wants Jakie to sing beside
him at his New York syna-
gogue. But Jakie forsakes his
heritage for a musical career
in California.
Jakie anglicizes his name to
Jack Robin, gets a girl, and is
called to appear on
Broadway. Jack's stubborn
father takes ill and expects

Jack to sing "Kol Nidre" at
the synagogue on the night
of Jack's Broadway premiere.
Could any more buttons be
pushed here??
The story is melodrama in
full bloom, and it has pot
aged well. (If you need'fur-
ther proof, check out the
1980 remake with Neil
Diamond and Sir Laurence
The movie's cause is not
helped by racial stereotyping
that was common in its day
but is jaw-dropping now.
Jack's hand-wringing papa is
played by Warner Oland,
later to caricature another
race as the star of the Charlie
Chan movie series.
And the DVD's packaging
does its best to hide the
movie's dirty little secret:
Nobody loved blackface more

than Al Jolson. (In the
movie's finale, a "blacked up"
Jolson belts out "Mammy". to
his mother.) Google this
movie, on the Internet, and
you'll find countless promo
posters of Jolson happily
emoting in blackface.
Strange, isn't it, that the
DVD's cover shows Jolson
only in silhouette?
The DVD set's extras are
lavish,, with a documentary
about cinema's "talkie era"
and over three hours of early
sound short subjects. But
then there's that irony-free
story of a singer aiming for
fame not only by denying his
own racial heritage, but
defaming another race while
doing it. It hangs over this
historic movie like a pall.

Cont. from B-1
him of playing guitar forever.
"The doctors told me I'd
never play again. Nine
months later I was back on
tour," Balsamo said. "I barely
made it. Someone was defi-
nitely looking out for me.
They still are."
One of those who steadfast-
ly remained in Balsamo's cor-
ner was Lee. With the bond
between the two musicians
that formed during the writ-
ing process intact, she dis-
missed the nay sayers who
urged her to quickly find a
"I'm sure people were like
'he's done. You need to find .
somebody else.' But she knows,
I'm as stubborn as they
come," Balsamo said. "I'm still.
fighting the whole paralysis
thing but I'm good. Amy has
been supportive through the
whole thing."
This was not the first time
Balsamo's resolve has tread in
choppy waters. A veteran of
the Jacksonville bar circuit in
the late 80's and early 90's,
Balsamo cut his teeth playing
at old haunts like Papa Joe's
and Dash Riprocks "back
in the day, Peeler's was awe-
some," he said as guitarist
with local hardcore band

Sackajaweeda before joining
Limp Bizkit in 1996.
"It was just for a year," he
said. Balsamo diplomatically
cites personality conflicts as
the reason he left the band.
Just as the door closed on
Limp Bizkit, another opportu-
nity opened for Balsamo to
join an established band.
Cold, formerly known as
Grundig, was another group of
local guys including frontman
Scooter Ward who were slowly
breaking into the industry.
"Whenever Cold did their
first record, not much came
out of it," Balsamo said.
"When Scooter started writing
again, he said hei didn't \ajit-
to play guitar ,iinyirm:re Hi
wanted to find someone local
and my name got thrown in
the mix."
Contributing writing on the
band's followup record "13
Ways to Bleed on Stage,"
Balsamo and Cold earned a
gold record. The same hap-
pened with "Year of the
Spider" which produced the
oft-heard track "Stupid Girl,"
But problems with the
record label and the personal
demons of some of the mem-
bers ominously trailed the
band's success until Cold
finally fizzled out.

"It was getting to the point
where it was really impossible
to keep it steady," Balsamo
said. "The label basically
stopped promoting "Year of
the Spider" and I could see
things getting sour with the
whole thing."
Another band was experi-
encing its own inner turmoil
as Cold struggled to stay
warm. Opening for
Evanescence in support of the
band's multimillion selling
album "Fallen," Balsamo said
the relationship between Lee
and former guitarist and
cofounder Ben Moody was
starting to unravel.
"Everyone could see them
getting into it'. In the middle
of the tour in Europe he left
and they asked me to fill in,"
he said. "Thing with [Cold's]
label were bad again and
when they asked me if I want-
ed to stay, I said 'yes, thank
you'. It was a tough decision. I
didn't want to leave These
were boys I group up with."
Balsamo quickly found him-
self on stage in front of mil-
lions of adoring fans in exotic
locations like Israel, Russia
and Turkey. Any reservations
about playing with "an actual
band" were axed just as quick-
ly as the notions that

Evanescence was nothing
more than a pop band with an
"Right when I joined,
Evanescence had two million
records sold. We wanted to
finish the tour and start writ-
ing some new material," he
said. "But then "My
Immortal" came out and it
just hit the roof so we knew
we had to keep touring until
we'd had enough."
It was during preparations
for "The Open Door" that
Balsamo and Lee realized the
full potential of their collabo-
rative efforts. The writing.
proved cohesive. "Snow
White Queen;"the first track,
they penned together, made it
on the album. Balsamo said it
was a good start.
"We just wanted to keep
going with it," he said. "There
was no plan. We both knew
we could do it."
Balsamo had just hit his
stride when the lightning
ripped through the left side of
his body. Fast forward a year
and a half and Balsamo is
starting to be good again. He
is thankful to be alive, grateful
to still be playing music and
he is looking forward to com-
ing home.

Magic: Not as powerful as 'The Rising'

Cont. from B-1
'60s summer-pop sound to it
... imagine Sprinrgsteen trying
to sound like Chad and
Jeremy, or perhaps The Beach
Boys. A different sound for
him, true, but it works, and
works well.
The eerie title song is punc-
tuated by a haunting man-
dolin and ghostly vocals; it's
almost as if Springsteen had
Halloweeri in mind when he
wrote "Magic."
A blase string section on
"Your Own Worst Enemy"
tends to weaken the song a
bit, and "Last To Die" sounds
disappointingly like filler, but
those are minor quibbles.

Strong rockers like "Radio
Nowhere," "Gypsy Biker" and
"Long Walk Home" more than
make up for any slight mis-
"Devil's Arcade" is a slow-
burner reminiscent of The
Verve's "Bitter Sweet
Symphony." It, along with
"Girls In Their Summer
Clothes" and "Magic," are the
main standouts.
The album closes with a
"hidden" or bonus track (a first
for a Springsteen studio
album). "Terry's Song" is a trib-
ute to Terry Magovern,
Springsteen's friend and assis-
tant for more than 20 years,
who died in July. "Terry's

Song" finds Springsteen at his
acoustic best, with a piano.
part which sounds as if it was
lifted from The Band's "The
Night They Drove Old Dixie
Fans who enjoy Springsteen
the rocker more than
Springsteen the experimenter
will find "Magic" infinitely
more satisfying than projects
such as "The Ghost of Tom
Joad" and "The Seeger
Sessions." While "Magic" may
not be quite as powerful an
album as "The Rising," it
proves that Springsteen at 58
years of age can easily out-
rock most singers half his age.

Tips on how to winterize your windows

Dear Jane,
What steps can I take
myself to prep my windows
for the winter and save on my
heating bills?
Frannie P.

Dear Frannie,
With the winter about to
blow in, don't spend another
year throwing money out the
window. By sealing your win-
dows before the season hits
you'll keep warmer during
those long winter months
and cut your heating bills by
more than 30 percent!
Taping and sealing your
windows are inexpensive
basics that will keep you cozy,
but if your windows are espe-
cially old you may want to
consider more drastic meas-
ures, such as replacing them.
Read on to get the low down
on whether you should caulk,
seal or look into buying new
windows altogether.

Where to Start
How to winterize your win-
dows depends on what kind
of windows you have. If you
live in an older home,
chances are the windows have
not been updated. You could
be living with 50-year old
windows, which may need a
bit more extensive work.

'Be Jane'

Know Your Window
Assess what kind of win-
dows you have. Are they long
and narrow, or short and
wide? Do they open from the
top and the bottom, or just
the bottom? If your window
opens in two places it is
called a double-hung window.
Because these types of win-
dows provide the most venti-
,lation, they also have the
most significant problems
with drafts and leaks.
Windows that open solely
from the bottom are called
single hung. Other types
include swing out windows,.
horizontal sliding door win-
dows, slat-piece and pane
windows (windows that don't

open). All are certainly prone
to leaks and drafts, but
depending on their age and
condition, the problems may
not be as severe.
If you have to turn a crank
to open your window, you
have a casement window and
you are in luck as these are
one of the most energy-effi-
cient models around! Wind
blowing at the window only
makes it seal to the frame
tighter. However, casement
windows do have disadvan-
tages. They are harder to
clean than your run-of-the-
mill window and, depending
on their size, they can be dif-
ficult to escape from in the
event of a fire. Consider
installing casement windows
in rooms where you spend a
lot of time; though carefully
research your building codes
first. Their size and weight
dictates how wide these win-
dows can be.
The Frame Game
Advances in technology
have dramatically increased
window efficiency within the
last 20 years so it may just be
time to update. The frame of
the window is actually the
biggest culprit in wasting
your heated air, not the glass.
Those who live in a cold envi-
ronment should not install
aluminum frames.
Many builders choose alu-

minum frames because
they're cheap, but aluminum
should be reserved for warmer
climates only. Fiberglass,
wood and vinyl are better
options for colder climates.
Caulk it Up
Protecting your home from
the winter cold begins with
mending any cracks around
your window frames and
doors on the both inside and
outside of your home. If you
discover that some of your
cracks are already treated with
caulk, check it carefully. It
may need to be replaced,
which requires that you
remove it with a scraping
tool. Once it has been
removed, liberally apply
removable caulk around fis-
sures surrounding your win-
dow and door frames, wiping
away any excess. Work on a
dry day when the tempera-
ture is hovering above 45
degrees Fahrenheit. If mois-
ture gets into the caulk it
won't work properly. Use
wood filler to fill in any larger
gaps between the wood siding
and the window frames. For
extra protection, consider
painting over the wood filler
with a weather proof primer
and exterior paint.

Weather Stripping
Weather stripping your
windows and doors is critical

Champagne labels becoming Hollywood icons

Cyril Brun was on his way
to the United States to
promote his company's
champagne when he happened
to catch a glimpse of a familiar
label on two in-flight movies.
First was the animated "Shrek,"
when a character threw a bottle
of Veuve Clicquot across the
floor. Then came "Spider-Man
2." What are the odds two
movies would feature his wine?
The odds are getting better,
he says, as champagne labels
become Hollywood icons. We
all know that James Bond, for
instance, liked Bollinger.
The ubiquitous Veuve
Clicquot, like most cham-
pagne, is enjoying growing
.obpularint''o'wadayI. The

ble ready to burst soon. In fact,
Champagne's success presents a
bit of dilemma demand is
outstripping availability.
By law, Champagne's growers
cannot simply plant more
vines to fill the need. The land
is there, but it takes a new law
that won't come easy, says
Brun. The appropriate land is
owned by a limited number of
people who will profit hand-
somely from expansion and
therein lies a political dispute.
Then there is global warm-
ing, a phenomenon that is
impacting wine growing
regions around the country.
Champagne is so far north that
grapes struggle to ripen before
the first frost. You would think
that a warming trend would
make grape growing easier, but
Mr. Brun says there is another
side to riper grapes: a loss in
acidity. He noticed his 1999
vintage champagne has riper

reevaluated. He predicts that
global warming will lead to
more vintage champagnes -
they are made in only the best
years and that champagne's
flavor profile will be more opu-
lent. What's the complaint
with that?
Without more champagne
on the market, prices are des-.
tined to continue their ascent.
Veuve Clicquot raises its prices
3 to 5 percent a year. Let's hope.
for expansion.
With this kind of sales,
champagne makers shouldn't
have to worry about getting
people to drink champagne on
days other than celebrations.
But that's a frequent complaint
of champagne producers.
"It's frustrating," confesses
Brun. "When champagne is
.served at a table, people at
nearby tables wonder whose
birthday is it?".
It may not be anyone's birth-

day. It could be that someone
just likes champagne or the cel-
ebration is merely being alive.
Although there are signs that
champagne is selling year-
round, sales will spike sharply
in the coming months.
Champagne is a fixture at New
Year's Eve bashes, but also
around Christmas and even'
We sometimes drink cham-
pagne on a leisurely Sunday
afternoon when it's cold out-
side and you need something
to lift the spirits. Even with
their steep prices, you can find
real champagne for $30 a bot-
tle. The luxurious cuvees,
though, can easily pass the
$100 mark.
Veuve Clicquot favors pinot
noir in its blend and that gives
the champagne more weight
and flavor.
Brun recently shared some of
his excellent wine with us dur-
ing a visit. Here are our
Veuve Clicquot Yellow
Label.($55). This non-vintage
champagne dominates Veuve
Clicquot sales. It is one of the
most well-recognized labels and
the price is still reasonable for
this kind of quality. Good
toasty flavors and crisp finish.
Veuve Clicquot 1999 ($75).
The grapes were more mature
when harvested this year, so
the wine has an obviously aged
but flavorful profile with a silky
texture and good weight on the
palate. Peach and honey notes
with a hint of almonds. It can
keep for another decade. We
loved this wine.
Veuve Clicquot La Grande
Dame 1996 ($150). Made only

in great vintages, this wine was
born with the 1962 vintage as a
tribute to the Widow ("veuve")
Clicquot who managed the
property in the early 19th cen-
tury at age 27 after her hus-
band of just two years died.
Her maiden name,
"Ponsardin," was added to the
label in 1810, but most people
just shorten the name to Veuve
It also replicates the wine of
her day by using the saine
blend and the grapes from the
same vineyards but adding new
technology that makes the
wine less oxidized today. The
1996 has a mature personality
but with good acidity, particu-
larly on the finish. Citrus and.
toast notes. About 64 percent
of it is pinot noir, which is
pretty consistent with previous
Veuve Clicquot Vintage
Rose 2000 ($85). This property
has 20 winemakers divided
into teams of four who concen-
trate on each of the wines.
Brun's specialty is the vintage
rose good choice, if it was his
to make. He stuck his neck out
when he argued for a rose in
the year 2000, a mediocre
.growing season at best. The
only other time Veuve Clicquot
made only a rose as its vintage
wine was in 1997. He con-
vinced others that while the
general crop was not good
enough for a regular vintage
wine, it was good for the rose.
He seems right if a taste is any
indication. This wine had a flo-
ral bouquet, pink grapefruit fla-
vors ard a touch of spice. good
balance and fresh acidity.

Matheson: Don't do any pruning right now

Cont. from B-1
of transplants/seedlings avail-
able is crucial, as well as
knowing which varieties have
been tested to do well here in
North Florida. I recommend
that you call the Cooperative
Extension office at 387-8850
and ask for the Vegetable
Gardening Guide brochure, or
go online at and
print it out.
For an early harvest, select
crops such as beans, cucum-
bers, summer squash and
some lettuces. A few tomato
varieties might be ok as well if
you can find healthy trans-
plants. These plants need to
get into the ground right
away. If they do well and
Mother Nature cooperates,
they'll be ready for your
Thanksgiving feast.
Early to mid October allows
you to plant what we call
"cool season" crops such as
broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauli-
flower, beets, carrots, cabbage,
onions, turnip and spinach
greens to name just afew.
Many herbs like to be grown
in the fall, and the guide will
help you that that, too.
Remember that selection of
the proper variety is critical,
and you'll want that vegetable
brochure I spoke of. By the
way, it will also tell you what
kind of fertilizer to use, how
to handle any insects, etc.
Many folks enjoy a fall garden

more than a Spring one, and
as I said, many vegetables can
be grown easily in containers.
Any vegetable garden/contain-
er must have an average of six
hours of surf a day; in the
summer the western exposure
might have been too hot, but
now that the temperatures are
waning a tad, that exposure is
probably just fine. So, I hope
that I have encouraged you to
,try a few. Who knows, you
might just get hooked!
Fruit trees should have their
last fertilization now. The vari-
eties that do well here all have
their special blends already
prepared for you; use them
because they contain minor
elements that fruit trees
grown in this part of the
country need.
Follow the directions on the
bag for quantity to use; be
sure and "broadcast" the
product under the entire
canopy of the tree, from the
trunk out to, and just beyond
the furthest branch. Water the
product in slightly, and then
forget about the tree for a few
Do not do any pruning
now. You might see fruit trees
at the nursery in the upcom-
ing months. They like to be
planted during their dormant
time, which is in January and
early February. As with the
vegetables, only certain vari-
eties will do well here, so
again, call at 387-8850 for lit-

erature on fruit trees.
Soon you will see citrus
available for planting and it
can be planted now. It is rec-
ommended that for the first
year or two you pull the fruits
off, allowing the energy of the
tree to go into developing a
strong root system. Remember
that citrus and fruit trees do
'not like to be mulched, but
the ground under their
canopy simply kept clean.
By all means keep any weed
killers far away from them.
Flying Dragon Nursery in
Mandarin always has great
varieties of citrus grown on a
very cold hardy rootstock; I
am sure the nurseries close to
the beach also have a good
selection, and the cold hardi-
ness will not be as important
to you living out that way.
Flowers that can be planted
now are pretty slim in variety.
This will change quickly as
soon as the temperatures
wane. If you've gone looking,
you've probably seen many of
the same ones that were avail-
able for summertime. Frankly,
unless you need instant color,
I would wait another few
weeks until the cool season
flowers are available because
then you will have all sorts of
pansies, violas, petunias, snap-
dragons, carnations, sweet
william, alyssum, etc. and
these will last through the
winter. They like our cool
evenings and can even handle

most freezes. Of course, the
common, colorful chrysanthe-
mum is always a winner.
That's it for this week. I will
be in New Hampshire next
weekend closing the cabin up
for the winter. I am wonder-
ing if any color will be left on
the trees. I sure hope so. Have
a great week.

for keeping your home insu-
lated in the winter. You can
either pick up weather strip-
ping as a kit at a local home
improvement store, or buy
the materials individually.
What you buy will depend on
your climate and how
intensely you feel like weath-
er stripping.
Vinyl, bronze, aluminum
and felt are some of the many
materials used in weather
stripping; it all depends on
your climate and how much
money you have to spend.
Ask your home improvement
retailer what materials they

Cover your Windows
If the drafts are strong and
you can't seem to solve the
issue, another extra precau-
tion worth investigating is
covering windows with plas-
tic and shrink wrapping them
by heating the plastic with a
hair dryer. Again, you can buy
a kit to shrink wrap your win-
dows or do it yourself with a
few basic materials. To do it
yourself, line your window
and frame with heavy-duty
double sided tape. Stick

shrink wrap (rolls of which
can usually be found in most
moving stores) or plastic wrap
(the kind you wrap leftovers
in) and gently warm the plas-
tic with a hair dryer until it
becomes smooth. (Because it's
-going to shrink, make sure to
rip off a little excess.) Move
the dryer back and forth as
not to overheat one portion.
You don't want the plastic to
start melting.

Stay Warm
Preparing your windows for
the upcoming season should-
n't take more than a few
hours. The time you'll spend
doing so will pay for itself
many times over in both your
comfort level throughout the
winter as well sayings to your
energy bill. So get started seal-
ing up that drafty home of
yours. That warm feeling
won't be just the heater; it'll
be the satisfaction of knowing
you are saving money and

The approaching holidays
may be merrier than expected
for retailers. Despite a troubled
housing market and higher gas
prices, Florida consumers say
they intend to spend more this
season than they did last year,
a new University of Florida sur-
vey shows.
"Many retailers fear that this
holiday season's sales will be
the worst in five years" said
Barton Weitz, executive direc-
tor of UF's Miller Center for
Retailing Education and
Research. "But'while our sur-
vey shows that people with
lower incomes plan to spend
less, those with higher
incomes expect to spend more,
which makes the overall effect
Floridians estimate they will
spend an average of $1,325
during the 2007 holiday sea-
son, based on a telephone sur-
vey of 525 state residents dur-
ing September. About 73 per-
cent said they plan to spend
the same or more this year.
When asked the same question
Last year ini a similar survey,
only 62 percent indicated they
would be spending the same or
more than the previous year.
"One reason they gave for
spending more is they are buy-
ing these high-tech games and
toys that cost more," Weitz
said. "It's not that they're buy-
inghmore things, it's that the
things they want to buy are
more expensive."
Consumers also said they
have a greater number of fami-
ly members to buy for this year
and they simply have more
money to spend, he said.
Families expecting to spend
less this holiday season report-
ed they either had less income
from losing a job or working
fewer hours or they had more
expenses from higher utility
bills or taxes, Weitz said.
,Higher income consumers --
those with annual household
incomes of more than $60,0006
indicate they are likely to
spend slightly more than
$1,900, while those from

than $60,000 are inclined to
spend $890, he said.
Weitz said the income differ-
ences were not apparent in last
year's survey. "We do know
there has been this general
widening of the income gap
between the haves and the
have-nots that has been going
on for quite awhile," he said.
Of those from higher
income households, 81 per-
cent plan to spend the same or
more this holiday season com-
pared to last season, but only
67, percent of residents from
lower income households
intend to spend the same or
more, he said.
Those in the lowest earning
group -- with household
incomes of less than $30,000 -
- plan to spend the least. Forty-
two percent reported they
expect to spend less this season
than last year, the survey
"These are the people who
are most affected by the rise in
gas prices and probably the
increases in insurance costs
and property taxes as well," he
said. "They could also be the
same people suffering the
effects of some of these sub-
prime loans."
Because of these income dis-
parities, discount stores such as
Family Dollar, Dollar General
and Wal-Mart are likely to fare
worse this holiday season than

more upscale stores such as
Macy's, Nordstrom and
Neiman Marcus, he said.
Retailers that appeal to these
customers with lower incomes
would probably be wise to
have less merchandise and less
inventory in stock than they
might normally plan on," he
said. "At the end of the season,
they don't want to be stuck
with excess inventory that
they have to sell off at a loss."
Generally, that is the pattern
all retailers seem to'be follow-
ing right now because of the
belief that this year's holiday
season will not be particularly
robust, Weitz said. The holi-
days are critical for retailers,
who rely on them for as much
as 50 percent of annual sales,
he said.
In other trends, 70 percent
of consumers surveyed indi-
cate they will be spending the
same or more on gift cards
than last year, 64 percent the
same or more on apparel, 60
percent the same or more or
things for the home, and 59
percent the same or more on
toys and games.
The survey was conducted
by the retailing center and UFs
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. The margin
of error is 3 percent.
Keen writes for the University
of Florida's Department of
Information Services.

When the American Brass
I( Quintet gave its first public per-
formance over forty-six years
ago, brass chamber music was
relatively unknown to concert
audiences. That modest debut in
1960 marked the beginning of an
international concert career for
the ensemble that Newsweek
calls "the high priests of brass."
In the U. S., the Quintet has performed in major con-
cert series in all fifty states including appearances at
Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Cen-
The ABQs foreign touring has taken it throughout
much of the world. Over one hundred works for brass
quintet have been commissioned for them by today's
finest composers.

Local hosts yappyy hour' at Paws Park

Norma Brizzi of Atlantic
Beach is known by small dog
owners and their pets as the
hostess of "Yappy Hour" at
Paws Park in Jacksonville
"When the park opened
most small dog owners only
visited the large dog area," said
Sandy Golding, who is
described by friends as "Alpha
Dog" of the Friends of Paws
Park. "Norma started 'Yappy
Hour,' a weekly hour of social
interaction and play, which
encouraged them to use the
small dog area. A much safer
environment for play between
same size.pups. She makes sure
everyone has a fun time and
educates owners about park
rules. Norma has done great
things for the dog park."
These sentiments are echoed
by Madelyn Levin of Atlantic
Beach, who with Bergen, her
Peke-a-poo, is a "Yappy Hour"
regular. "Norma is fabulous.
She welcomes owners and pets,
makes everyone comfortable
and brings sporting equipment
to entertain the dogs."
Brizzi comes to the park with
Little Eddie, the four-footed
star of the Jacksonville Parks
and Recreation's "Life is Better"
media campaign. He and Brizzi
have appeared on billboards
throughout town and will be
seen on bus wrap-around's in
the coming months. The five-
year-old Maltipoo is a reigning
Flyball champion, Frisbee and
Agility triathlete.
Earlier this year, Little Eddie
and Brizzi's other pet, two-
year-old Micah Bear, were sit-
ting by her car, waiting to be
strapped into their seatbelts for
a weekend trip to a doggie
tournament. That was when a
speeding car hit Micah Bear
and he died a few moments
later. Adopted through the
Northcentral Maltese Rescue
organization when he was one,
Micah had competed in all
three doggie sports and was
only one week away from

receiving a Good Canine
Citizen (GCC) Award when the
accident occurred.
SAnxious to bring something
positive from the tragedy,
Brizzi petitioned her
Homeowner's Association to
erect stop signs throughout the
property. The signs were
installed, one only feet away
from the site of the accident.
This spring she started the
non-profit Micah Bear
Foundation to raise funds for
Maltese with special needs res-
cued by Northcentral Maltese
In her tribute found on the
foundation web site, Brizzi
says, I did not want another
dog because I was afraid that I
would not Have enough love
for two. Micah taught me that
there is always enough love to
go around, more than enough.
And I could not have loved
him more."
Mary Palmer, President said
Northcentral has special need
"We started out local and
very small but the need was so
great we quickly grew into a
national organization. Two
weeks ago a young Maltese was
sitting in a kennel in Kentucky
with a broken leg. He was
receiving no medical care, no
pain medication. A Pug Rescue
volunteer called and asked if
we would take the dog. I said
yes, if you can get him to us in
Wisconsin. He arrived with
serious eye infections, which
were treated; the leg had to be
amputated. Today he is happi-
ly adjusting to a new loving
home in Wisconsin. The Micah

Seven savvy storage ideas for the bathroom

ast week, I wrote about
cleaning glass showers. I
was prompted to write after
staying in a hotel room with a
gorgeous glass shower in the
bathroom. However, while I was
there I also was pleasantly sur-
prised with good storage. There
were drawers to hold toiletry
items, a wall-mounted make-up
mirror, and a blow dryer with a
retractable cord that begged to
be put away.
Hotel bathrooms usually
resemble the ones at home -
woefully short on storage space -
making the counters a jumble of
bathroom items.
When the counters are loaded
with personal products, it's not
just an eyesore, it's also hard to
clean. If clutter and over-accu-
mulation in the bathroom is a
problem at your house, try
adding some storage to contain
the mess. You'll find that you're
less stressed by the visual clutter,
it'll be faster to get dressed and
cleaning will be simpler.
1. Contain it. If you don't
have a medicine cabinet, use a
storage box with a hinged lid to
corral your bathroom essentials
crowding your counter space.
The box should be used only for
those products that you use
every day. For daily prescrip-
tions, try placing these in a
small decorative box or contain-
er out of the bathroom. It keeps
your prescriptions private and
pretty at the same time.
2. Go to the wall. Walls pro-
vide .a variety of storage options.
Add a wall-mounted magazine
holder for bathroom items., Or,
hang display boxes to hold items
artfully. There are even some
hinged storage boxes that can be


Wall-mounted storage shelves
are another space-saver and
counter-clearing helper. Wall-
mounted towel holders keep
towels orderly and at the ready.
3. Buy space savers. Trade up
and trade in your lighted make-
up mirror and blow-dryer with
their tangle of cords for neat and
easy wall-mounted models.
There are now blow dryers with
retractable cords that keep the
wires on the counter in control.
4. Furnish the bath. If space
permits there are a number of
storage cabinets ranging from
tall and thin to corner models to
antique cabinets that can give
you more storage in the bath-
room. Furniture in the bathroom
is also very trendy and makes
the room feel cozier.
5. Build in space. There is
space waiting in the bathroom
between the wall studs. If you're
handy, consider utilizing this
area for some storage shelves.
These can be added in showers,

next to mirrors, over the toilet
or anywhere there's an open wall
area. All homes under construc-
tion should include shower
boxes for shampoo and shower
items. There's no reason not to
build in storage space when you
have the chance.
6. Knee space. Some bath-
rooms have knee spaces for
make-up areas that can be put to
work. Mount a storage box or
basket to a side of the knee space
to hide curling irons, brushes, or
blow dryers out of sight. I saw
this recently done at a chic spa
in Las Vegas and I thought it was
a great idea. All the blow dryers
and curling irons were out of
sight and more importantly -
out of the way.
7. Get a medicine cabinet.
Though old-fashioned, these
bathroom work-horses make as
much sense today as they did
back in the day. A medicine cab-
inet can be installed on a side
wall or can replace large mir-.
rored walls with a little elbow-
grease. The value of the tradi-
tional medicine cabinet is that
they provide eye-level storage
and don't require the stooping
and bending that under-cabinet
storage does. If you're building
or renovating, re-think the medi-
cine cabinet. They can be made
over-sized and don't have to be
the tiny things they once were.

to be tiny any more. This large cabinet stores bathroom necessities at eye-level, eliminat-

about using film canisters to
bring on picnics to hold

are not good for carrying t ny,

Pasta manufacturing is both
science and art. On the loading
dock of a pasta plant, trucks
deliver the coarse semolina
flour that has been milled from
durum wheat. A special vacu-
um hose pulls the wheat flour
inside the plant and places it
in gigantic bins.
Under carefully controlled
conditions, the wheat flour is
mixed with water in a huge
industrial mixer to- form a
tough dough: For some prod-
ucts,,eggs and natural flavor-
ings, such as spinach and
tomato powders, are added at
this time.
Once it has reached the per-
fect consistency, the dough is
ready for shaping. Most pasta
shapes result when the dough
is force or "extruded" through
"dies," large metal discs full of
The size and shape of the
holes in these dies determines
what the finished pasta shape
will be. Round or oval holes
produce solid rods, such as ver-
micelli and spaghetti. When a
steel pin is placed in the center
of each hole in the die, the

dough comes out in hollow
rods, such as macaroni. To give
macaroni its curved shape, the
pin has a notch in one side.
This allows the dough to pass
through more quickly on one
side, causing it to curve before
it is cut to size with a revolving
Once the pasta is extruded, it
is cut to the proper length and
then begins its trip through
the drying process. The
machines that dry pasta can be
up to 320 feet long about as
long as a football field. Drying
is one of the most critical steps
to achieving a perfect finished
product. If the pasta is dried
too quickly, it will break easily.
If dried too slowly, it could
spoil. Inside the dryers,, the
pasta is subjected to constantly
circulating, very hot, moist air.
Not surprisingly, different
pasta shapes require different
drying times according to their
