Wants the outdoor drinking rules for
community centers in the city relaxed.
Commissioner Paul Parsons suggested
that the city reconsider a recent ordi-

Commission that prohibits taking alco-

"They are cramped inside now, just

United States Marine Corps Sgt. JD
Hollingsworth of Jacksonville Beach
won't be home for Christmas this year
but Santa's helpers are bringing the hol-
iday cheer to him.
Hollingsworth, 22, is serving out the
last few months of his second tour of
duty but it is the first Christmas he will
spend in Iraq away from his family and
friends.
Operation G.I.F.T. is collecting phone
cards and AA and AAA batteries for
Hollingsworth's Marine troop stationed
in al-Habbbaniyah, west of Baghdad,
Iraq.
"He was home for Christmas last.
year," Kara Hollingsworth said of her
son who graduated from Fletcher High
School in 2003. "But this year they
won't be able to make it home so the
phone cards will definitely come in
handy. He used them a lot on his first
tour."
Hollingsworth was promoted in
September to the rank of sergeant and
recently reenlisted but the distance is
difficult, especially during the holidays.
"I'm very proud of him. He's done so
well. It's amazing watching him grow
into a young man," she said. "It's very
hard to have him so far away but this
has become his dream. "


Johnson said that people used to be
allowed to congregate outside with alco-
holic beverages, but the city received
complaints about noise and trash.
"This was a major problem and that's
the reason we pulled it in," said
Commissioner Mike Borno.
Mayor John Meserve suggested that
outside drinking be limited to the roof
line of the buildings, which would allow
patrons to utilize the porches in two of
the city's three centers.
Parsons will work with staff to draft a
revision.


on misbehaving animals?
Some revisions for the animal
control ordinance in Atlantic Beach
will be up for discussion at a future
workshop meeting, according to
city officials.
The city wants to consider requir-
ing two, instead of one, signed affa-
davits for complaints lodged when
animal control officers are off duty.
Fine revisions are also planned.
The change is to prevent neigh-
bors from filing grudge complaints
and launching "1-man crusades."

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A planning session for a proposed
skateboard park in Jacksonville Beach
heated up Wednesday between project
planners and members of the skate-
board community.
Concerns over cost, features, and the
overall park construction threatened to
divide a packed house of project plan-
ners and skaters of all ages.
Approximately 50 skaters from pre-
teens to parents attended the two-hour
design meeting at City Hall. City
Councilors Tom Taylor, Steve
Hartkemeyer and Rick Knight also par-
ticipated along with City Manager
George Forbes and Assistant City
Manager Roy Paxson.
Grounds Maintenance Director Gary
Meadors helped facilitate the meeting
with Brad Siedlecki of Pillar Action
Sports Development, who designed
four possible skate park concepts using
input gathered at the first meeting.
Siedlecki said the two elements that
will be incorporated in the final design
are a flow bowl for transitional skating

and a streetscape area.
The total area of the park will range
between 12,000 to 14,000 square feet
with 7,000 square feet dedicated for
each obstacle, using pre-cast features
that will be molded and poured by the
manufacturer then transported to the
site.


Shape, elevation, position of the ele-
ments must first be decided before the
project team can develop the final
design for the park.
"Those are just ideas. You don't have
to have them if that is not what you
guys are looking for," Siedlecki said.

JD Hollingsworth in Iraq.
Hollingsworth said family members
regularly ship care packages with movies
and DVDs of TV shows because
American television is not available to
the troops.
Phone cards and batteries, she said,
will help provide an extra lifeline to the
service merl and women who are sepa-


rated from their families.
"I suggested that they leave the items
behind for the next group of guys to
enjoy when they return in February to
Camp Pendleton in San Diego," she
said.
Traffic anchor Michelle Jacobs of
WTEV-CBS47 helped spearhead the
drive after learning about Hollingsworth
through friends.
"We hope to fill at least six boxes,"
Jacobs said. "These are essential Items
that these guys need to call their families
and listen to their music."
The last day to donate items is Dec. 7.
Jacobs said the packages must be
shipped by Dec. 11 to get to Iraq by
Christmas.
"If people still want to donate later we
will do what we can to get it there but
we can't guarantee it will be there in
time for Christmas," Jacobs said.:
For Hollingsworth, she feels her son
will be proud knowing that the com-
munity cares enough to reach out and
let the troops know that people at
home are thinking about them during
the holidays.
Donations to Operation G.I.FT are
accepted at the CBS 47 news station at
11700 Central Parkway located across
from FCCJ South Campus on Beach
Boulevard. A wrapped box is located in
the lobby for dropoffs. For information

NB plaza


to double


retail size

Renovation lacks
variances


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER

A proposed office/retail develop-
ment will nearly double the size of
the Penman Plaza shopping center in
Neptune Beach pending approval of
several variances.
The applicant, Penman Plaza
Associates, Ltd., is proposing the
demolition of a vacant movie theater
and the addition of 46,500 square
feet of'office and retail space in the
Penman Plaza shopping center at
Atlantic Boulevard and Penman
Road, according to the city's building
department. A Winn Dixie store isl
the largest-retdiler currently on the'
property and will remain.
Community Development Director
Amanda Askew said that the proper-
ty owners have not told the city what
kind of retail the shopping center
will have, but they did say it was a!
"major retail tenant," she said.
But, the applicant has requested
nine variances that must first bel
approved by the city council for the'
project to move forward.
The planning and development!
review board recommended approval
of only two of the nine variances at a!
meeting Tuesday, according to
Askew.
All of the variances are needed, the
developer said in a press release
issued Thursday afternoon, explain-
ing that he may not be able to pro-
ceed.
"Without assistance from the City
allowing several of the grandfathered
nonconforming site conditions to
remain in place as they have existed
for more than 40 years, it is unlikely
the property will be able to be re-
developed in any meaningful way for
the foreseeable future," said Carlos
Asensio of Penman Plaza Associates,
Ltd.
The developer, describing himself
as disappointed, said it is "economi-
cally unfeasible" to meet all of the
city's current site requirements for
the existing structures.
Some of the variance requests
include:

Redoing plans may ease need for variances


- PENMAN PLAZA, from A-1


*reducing a required land-
scape buffer from nine feet to
three feet
*reducing the gross area land-
scaping from 20 percent to 15
percent
*exceeding maximum lot cov-
erage, which pertains to having
enough area for drainage and
space for landscaping
*increasing the maximum
number of parking spaces and
reducing their size
*reducing the 10 foot buffer
between commercial and resi-

The planning and develop-
ment review board recommend-
ed approving reducing the 10-
foot buffer between the com-
mercial and residential zoning
and reducing the size of parking
spaces from 10x20 feet to 9 x 18
feet, according to Askew.
Askew said that the variance
requests are not that unusual,
but a preliminary development
order cannot be approved until
all the variances are approved.
"That is a lot of variances, but
the majority are inter-related so
if you made one change, it
would have a ripple effect,"
Askew said.
.Askew also said that she has
discussed redoing the site plan
with the developer to lessen the
amount of variances required.
"I think they're probably
going to look at doing some
slight modifications," she said.
"One change could lessen or
negate the need for some vari-
ances."
According to a staff report
from Askew, the applicant is

details. With these four options
we can take these ideas and
tweak them or we can come up
with a new idea."
Emotions ran high during the
initial phase of the discussion
regarding the bowl in the transi-
tional or "tranny" portion of the
park.
Rather than use concrete to
build up the vertical edge of the
bowl, Siedlecki suggested an
alternate berm method that he
said would cut costs as well as
preserve some of the existing
tree canopy.
"With a three-foot water table
we are only talking about a six
foot hole so the top of the bowl
will be at least three feet above
ground,'" Siedlecki said.
Several skateboarders said
they were concerned that cut-
ting costs would trim other fea-
tures and compromise the func-
tionality of the park.
They were also concerned
that using precast concrete fea-
tures would create a "cookie cut-
ter" park that would not chal-
lenge the riders.
"This is a big skating place.
We've got some hard skaters
here. We're not interested in
anything intermediate. We
want something advanced so we
can really get our money's
worth," said one audience
member.
"You are talking to the skaters
now. These are the people that
are going to be here all the time,
plus a couple off hundred more


that aren't here right now."
Other issues were raised
regarding the selection of the
contractor. City officials were
chided for failing to include the
skateboarding community in
the selection process.
"If you haven't brought the
community in, how do we
decide what direction we are
going to go?" one audience
member said. "Shouldn't there
be a meeting about who is going
to build this rather than here is
what you've got? If you are
going to spend almost a half
million dollars, we need to hire
someone who knows what's
up."
The City Council last July
selected Spohn Ranch, Inc. as
the city's design/build contrac-
tor for the 10.5-acre skateboard
park to be constructed at South
Beach Park. Three firms submit-
ted proposals that were
reviewed by a five-person com-
mittee.
"Their experience, their con-
cept, how they go about the
project, any issues that they are
going to be dealing with on that
specific site taking that in
helps you evaluate who is going
to give you the best proposal
and that's what we went
through," Paxson said. "This is
what we selected because they
had the best idea."
Siedlecki was hired by Spohn
Ranch to design the park but his
company does not actually
complete the construction.


Meadors explained that the
purpose of a public design.
process is to solicit community
involvement but contractor
selection is strictly a city func-
tion.
"As far as the features, what
you want, street or bowls or
spines or inverts or whatever,
that is what we are doing
tonight," he said.
Siedlecki said the park con-
struction will likely be complet-
ed in a single phase unless the'
final design comes in over the
$350,000 project budget.
Meadors said despite a few
heated exchanges, the intended
goal of the design meeting was
met by getting a concise idea of
the features wanted by the
skateboard community.
"Toward the end the kids real-
ly got involved and told us a lot
of the things they wanted with
spines and rails and coping," he
said. "If you are a skater, as I am
continually learning, that's
where you do a lot of your stuff.
We actually got quite a lot
accomplished."
Meadors said city officials
plan to consult with Siedlecki
next week to review prices or
two possible concepts devel-
oped using the new informa-
tion.
"Like surfing, skateboarding is
pretty intense at the beach,"
Meadors said. "It got a little
more exciting than it needed to
be but at least people showed up
and participated."

The Leader's Opinion


Making Mayport


Road safer is


worth the effort

Mayport Road is one of the major roadways that runs
through Atlantic Beach. It connects the city with neigh-
boring Mayport, both fishing village and Naval Station.
Problems with road design and criminal activity along
the state road are nothing new. For decades, those who
drive the roadway have recognized its limitations and the
accompanying visual blight.
In recent years, however, efforts have been made to
coordinate planning and code enforcement between the
cities of Jacksonville and Atlantic Beach. In some
instances, areas have been beautified by private initiative.
There is still much to be done, however.
It is heartening to note that returning Atlantic Beach
Mayor John Meserve has identified improvements to the
road as a top priority for the city.
Stopping the decline of Mayport Road will require a
multi-prong approach by the various government agencies
involved as well as the businesses located along the
stretch.
Plans to improve the roadway and beautify it with land-
scaping are already in place, waiting final funding.
But road improvements will not solve all the concerns.
During the recent city election every candidate running
for office in Atlantic beach said that reining in the area's
criminal element is a real concern. Suggestions have been
made such as leasing space for a police substation or addi-
tional patrols specific to the area.
All are good ideas and worth consideration.
In the 70s, the road was known by some as Suicide Road
i.e. you put your life at risk to ride along or walk along
the road. Safety has improved since then, but there is a
long way to go before residents can achieve the mayor's
goal and feel as safe walking down Mayport Road as they
would on Seminole Road.
Making Mayport Road safer is an important priority,
worth the effort.





Letters to the editor:


Symphony is part of quality of life


To the editor:
I wish to support the senti-
ments of James D. Johnson in
.,Thec Leader on November 28,
,regardiiig the current situation
-of the Jacksonville Symphony. I
am a life-long musician, having
begun my instrumental life as a
seventh-grade student at
Fletcher High School. Since I
returned to the Beaches in 1999,
I have been a regular subscriber
to the Jacksonville Symphony's
performances.
When I returned to this area
after 35 years in the twin cities
of Minneapolis and St. Paul-
which has two renowned
orchestras---I was delighted (and
indeed somewhat surprised)
that Jacksonville had an orches-
tra of such exceptional quality
and professionalism, as well as a
concert hall adequate for the
level of performance of our
orchestra.
The economic growth and
vitality of Jacksonville as a met-
ropolitan area is dependent on
the quality of life provided here.
Jacksonville cannot be depend-
ent on either tourism or our rep-
utation as a "sports town" for its
continuing growth. It is our
schools, universities, and cultur-
al institutions---more than our


climate and natural attractions--
-as well as our civil order (which
seems uncertain at present) thai
.will make.us attractive to busi-
nesses and organizations which
might locate here. That is to say
we must have a quality of life
that will be attractive to the
employees of those businesses
and organizations.
The Jacksonville Symphony
in addition to our other cultural
and educational institutions, is
(to outsiders, if not to all of us;
absolutely essential to our civic
well-being. The Jacksonville
Symphony has been able to
attract and sustain a group of
superb musicians. We must find
a way to retain them and, with
them, the continuing growth
and brilliance of our orchestra.
Spme years ago,. when
Jacksonville was struggling to
acquire an NFL franchise, one o:
the boosters remarked that
without a football team
Jacksonville would be "just like
Memphis without Elvis."
What would we be without
the JSO? Tallahassee, Brunswick
Daytona Beach? Orlando with
out Mickey Mouse?

We are not a democracy, but a republic


aw and emotion are con-
tradictory sometimes
when it comes to local
government and our elected
officials. Too many times
councils and commissions
play to the emotions of their
constituency--and ignore the
law in the process. Regrettably
the taxpayer usually pays for
their folly.
Take for example the fight
in Neptune Beach against the
sign at Solantic. The city
council, led by one councilor
in particular, took offense to
the digital characteristic of the
Solantic sign and ordered
Solantic to take it down,
declaring it non-conforming.
Solantic refused and hard
charging emotions seemed to
take over at city hall in
Neptune Beach. "We'll show
them" seemed to be the atti-
tude. But Solantic didn't roll
over and met the challenge in
court. Either the City of
Neptune Beach got trapped
Splaying to emotion, got bad
legal advice, or both. The con-
t sequence; the city "settled",
Another way of saying lost,
their dispute with Solantic
and had to pay oout over
$127,000.
Several years ago a similar
s situation arose in Atlantic
Beach when the city commis-
Ssion denied a property
I owner's request to subdivide
Presidential lots. It had been a
) common practice in the past,
c maybe not in the neighbor-
e hood in question, but legally
Sallowed throughout the city.
f Even though the city attorney
I told them they would not pre-
Svail if the property owner
i challenged them in court, the
majority of the commission
a voted to deny the request. As
Expected the. property owner

sued. The commission then
sought an opinion from an
outside attorney, seemingly
hoping it would go against the
ruling of the city attorney.
Alas, the outside attorney
agreed with the city attorney.
The commission still pushed
forward, lost, and "settled";
remember the previous defini-
tion of "settled"? The impact?
It cost taxpayer over $40,000.
While it was easy to see why
the commission was opposed
because they felt it would pos-
sibly negatively impact the
neighborhood, the fae't;
remained that the law allowed
it! Even the best of intentions
cannot, should not, must not,
prevail over the law.
Dare we touch on Wal-
Mart? I felt when it was first
announced that Wal-Mart
would prevail because it sure
seemed they had the law on
their side. Certainly a number
of people on both sides of
Atlantic Boulevard were
opposed to it and we saw
elected officials playing to
that emotion, "standing up"
for the citizens. The problem
with that? It was dishonest.
Citizens have the right to
know the truth, and the truth


was it would be hard, if not
impossible to stop Wal-Mart
because of the prevailing law.
Understand this in no way has
anything to do with my per-
sonal opinion about Wal-Mart
coming here. I love Proctor
Ace and don't care for extra
traffic. But, I will yield to the
law. If I don't like the law I
will petition to get it changed.
Furthermore it was disingenu-
ous to try to change the law
after the fact as Neptune
Beach did with their square
footage reduction ordinance,
hoping that might block Wal-
Mart. I think all of us learned
about 'ex post facto' in high
school civics classes.
As a former, fellow commis-
sioner Bob Cook used to con-
stantly cite, we are not a
democracy but a republic! We
are governed by laws, not by
emotion. If we were governed
by emotion there would be
chaos and inconsistency. Laws
protect both the majority and
the minority.
As new commissioners and
councilors take office now and
in the future, it would be wise
:for 'theti 'to k, e"inindful of
the riAle of law. It wouldn't"
hurt for some of the long term
elected officials in the Beaches
communities to keep it in
their forefront too. Playing
politics to constituents' emo-
tions when contrary to the
law is misleading and
untruthful. Also, citizens have
to understand that commis-
sions and councils can't
always do what the majority
might wish. They are some-
times restrained by a law from
taking an action people desire.
Finally and importantly,
remember a law passed today
may be a nightmare for a com-
mission or council tomorrow!

Nothing wrong with asking God to help the process


To the editor:
Since our public education
system has failed to accurately
depict the Christian faith of
our country's founding
fathers, many people misun-
derstand the role of faith and
government and believe that
all government should be
'cleansed' of anything
Christian in nature including
prayer.
However if you take the
time to read the quotes of our
early leaders in government
you will find that it was far
from their intention to get rid
of all things pertaining to God
in government. Here is one
quote from Benjamin Franklin
that he made during the
Constitutional Convention on
Thursday June 28, 1787 when
the delegates were having hav-
ing bitter debates about the
form of government we
should have. I've chosen to
quote Benjamin Franklin
because he is often singled out
by those that love to point
out his belief in deism and


falsely accuse him of being
anti-Christian.
...I have lived, Sir, a long
time, and the longer I live, the
more convincing proofs I see
of this truth--that God
Governs in the affairs of men.
And if a sparrow cannot fall to
the ground without His
notice, is it probable that an
empire can rise without His
aid?...I therefore beg leave to
move-- that henceforth
prayers imploring the assis-
tance of Heaven, and its bless-
ing on bur deliberations, be
held in this Assembly every
morning before we proceed to
business, and that one or more
of the clergy be requested to
officiate in that service." quot-
ed from America's God and
Country by William J. Federer
on pg. 248-249.
Anyone interested in read-
ing the full speech can also
Google Benjamin Franklin and
Constitutional Convention to
see his words for themselves.
You will also find similar
quotes by George Washington,


Thomas Jefferson, Abraham
Lincoln, and other famous
Americans who expressed
their Christian faith openly
while serving in our govern-
ment.
This in no way implies that
these men were perfect in their
practice of the Christian faith-
-- they had their fair share of
faults but they were never hos-
tile to the practice of having
prayer when meeting together
in a government setting.
I respect that each of my fel-
low citizens have a right to
believe what they want and
that we have the right to chose
our religion.
However in this country
when a city commission
decides to have open Christian
prayer and ask God to help
with the decision making
process they are following in
the footsteps of our founding
fathers and there is nothing
wrong with that.

W hat would you do
if you bought a
nice Hereford bull
for $1,000 and found out
you couldn't use him?.
Well, that's what David
and Ashley Waldrep are ask-
ing. You see, they own just
such a bull. Right now, el
toro is resting peacefully on
a front porch in Hayesville,
N.C. He's not being used for
the reason that bulls of his
nature are normally used
for. He just stands there,
unaware.
But a lot of folks think
this fine specimen ought to
take his rightful place in
town, becoming somewhat
of a landmark for
Hayesville. People giving
directions would say, "You
go past the big bull on
Highway 64 Business and
take a left."
The question is, apparent-
ly, does the bull have a
rightful place in town? The
Waldreps want to fix a per-
manent spot for him on the
porch roof of their shop for
all to see and admire. But
the local planning and zon-
ing administrator said no. A
bull that size ddesn"t belong
on' the roof of' a downtown
business.
Some residents say that's
a bunch of bull, with four
more letters. Six hundred of
them have signed petitions
asking the city to relent.
Many are sporting bumper
stickers saying "Allow the
Cow." They've written let-
ters to the editor, gone by
the Waldreps' shop to voice
their support and even
offered to help hoist the
bull when the time comes.
The bull, if truth be
known, doesn't care.
Old bulls from Bi-Lo
supermarkets, bulls made of
fiberglass, normally have no
preferences'at all. They're
just there: 54 inches tall,
about the height of a real
Hereford bull; 65 pounds, a
bit shy of slaughter weight;
reddish brown with a white
face and feet; sporting sort
of a male Mona Lisa smile.
"He's a really good-look-
ing bull," Ashley .Waldrep
said.
The Waldreps, owners of
the Corner Butcher Shop,
had been watching this bull
for two years. They'd pass
by an antique business in
Commerce, Ga., and admire
him. But the business was
always closed. Finally, one
weekend, they caught the
owner in and asked the
price. They bought the bull.
The city official said the
bull violated the local sign
ordinance. A few folks in
town agreed. Might lower
property values.
But it's not a sign, said
one of the Waldreps' cus-
tomers, someone who once
owned a sign business. The
bull is an architectural orna-
ment.
The Waldreps have
appealed their case. They'll
find out Dec. 18, following
a public hearing on the
10th, if the bull is a forbid-
den sign or an architectural
ornament.
What a wonderful lesson.
You would not appeal a
decision of Kim Jong-il of
North Korea. He would
shoot the bull, and maybe
you.
So let us give thanks that
our country allows us to
speak openly, to publish
opinions, to assemble
peaceably, to petition the
government for a redress of
grievances and to debate
the merits of placing a life-
size, fiberglass bull on the
roof of a butcher's front
porch.











PV chamber says end EOC delay .


by GRAY ROHRER
STAFF WRITER
The Ponte Vedra Beach Chamber of Commerce
wants St. Johns County to stop dragging its feet
on building a new Emergency Operations Center.
At a press conference Tuesday at the Sawgrass
Marriott Resort in Ponte Vedra Beach, the cham-
ber.asked county commissioners to go ahead with
the original construction plans for a new
Emergency Operations-Center.
The statement came approximately one hour
after commissioners unanimously voted to look
into the possibility of placing the new emergency
center in a different location from the original
planned site.
The Ponte Vedra Chamber wants construction
to begin immediately on a county owned site just
west of the Agricultural Center near Interstate 95.
But commissioners voted to look into the feasi-
bility of an alternative site for the emergency cen-
ter, on a parcel located about a half mile south of
the original site. The new site is owned by the
Anastasia Mosquito Control District.
The original site was OKd in 2002 by the previ-
ous County Commission.
Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson said at
Tuesday's commission meeting she had received
an e-mail from Chuck Bushong, co-chair of the
Ponte Vedra chamber's Community Affairs
Committee, expressing concerns about delaying
the project.
"I'm a little bit disappointed that they're not
here today," Stevenson said of the Ponte Vedra
Chamber of Commerce.
A new emergency operations center is said to be
needed because the current one is located at 4020
Lewis Speedway, an area that could be decimated
by the storm surge created by a category 3 hurri-
cane, according to the Northeast Florida storm
surge atlas.
"We can't understand anyone having any oppo-
sition" to building on the original site Bushong
said during the press conference.
Bul farmers and agricultural advocates have a
different view.
They are against building the emergency center
on the original site because when the land was
originally given to the county in the 1980s, the

Bank OK'd


for 2nd


wall sign

FROM STAFF
The St. Johns County
Commission Tuesday agreed
to let Haven Trust Bank put up
a second wall sign on its
building in Ponte Vedra
Beach, although it is techni-
cally not allowed by county
ordinance.
The request by bank repre-
sentatives was approved 5-0,
with commissioners agreeing
this was one case that should
be an exception to the rule.
"If there's been a cause that
begs common sense, this is
it," said Commissioner Jim
Bryant.

sole purpose of the land was for agricultural use,
according to the 1983 county resolution accepting
the land from Charles and Gabye Usina.
"The agricultural community thinks it was
donated only for agricultural purposes," Jerry
Cameron, an assistant county administrator, said
during the press conference. "They feel like they
shook hands with the county and it's a done
deal."
Besides saving lives and providing vital services
before and after a hurricane or natural disaster, the
emergency center can also help businesses get
back on track, Bushong said.
He added that the Ponte Vedra Chamber wants
construction to begin immediately on the original
site not only because they fear a lapse in emer-
gency services, but also because state and federal
grants worth more than $1.5 million are due to
expire if construction is not begun.
The new Emergency Center must be completed
by June 30, 2009, in order to receive all of the fed-
eral and state money already approved for the
project.
Commissioners expressed some of the same
concerns at Tuesday's meeting before agreeing to
consider switching to the Mosquito Control
District's site.
Commissioner. Tom Manuel of Ponte Vedra
Beach noted that the voters will be asked in 2008
whether the Mosquito Control District should be
dissolved, with mosquito control to be taken over
by the county.
If that measure passes, the Mosquito Control
District's assets would pass to the county, Manuel
said.
Manuel also objected to one condition of using
the Mosquito Control District's land that the
district would be allowed to use the county's
access road.
"I think the cost of building the access road
would be extensive," Manuel said.
According to preliminary county estimates, the
cost for roads and utilities 'for the Mosquito
Control site would be approximately $1.19 mil-
lion, while the cost for the same services on the
original site would be $201,000.
Bushong also noted that the county already
granted a construction bid to a company that is a
member of the Ponte Vedra Chamber.

Ferry ridership 'promising'
g g g p


Impact of rate hike is
still unclear

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
It's been smooth sailing for the St. Johns River
Ferry since the Jacksonville Port Authority
assumed responsibility in October, according to
officials. *
Although no official numbers from JPA are
available yet, General Manager of Hornblower
Marine Services Fred Berley said that ridership
has increased since JPA took over ferry opera-
tions.
"We're starting to see an increase now," he
said. "Hopefully, it will get to where it was
before."
While fares increased from $3.25 to $5 for pri-
vate vehicles on Nov. 1, JPA Communications
Director Nancy Rubin said that there has been
"very little, rumbling," especially compared to
higher gas prices.
Berlev agreed, saving "I think the price of gas
is here to stay. Theferry is stfll a ffy'bnom'2
ical way of getting from one Wide of the river to
the other."
Rubin also said that $2,000 worth of discount
books, which cost $60 for 20 ferry rides, were
sold by 9 a.m. on Nov. 1, the day that rates
changed.
"Overall, things are running very smoothly,"


said Rubin.
Although revenues were down in October
compared to last year, Rubin said that expenses
have also been significantly reduced.
Rubin attributes lower October revenues to a
Northeaster that lasted for two weeks, which
"stunted" tourism, the discontinuation of ticket
book sales at the previous rate on Oct. 21 and
the anxiety of riders who did not know what to
expect from the ferry operations and fare adjust-
ments, she said.
Some expenses have been lowered as a result
of JPA purchasing fuel in bulk, some in-house
maintenance and a reduction of expense items
for the Blackbeard, the backup ferry which JPA
will retire soon.
Rubin said that JPA has saved $45,000 by buy-
ing diesel fuel, for example.
But, November revenues look "promising,"
according to Rubin, who said that numbers
through the first half of the month are signifi-
cantly better than in 2006. Final revenues for
November are not available until December.
Rubin also said that JPA is considering selling
advertising space aboard the ferry, which was
originally suggested as a plan (o increase rev,
enues when JPA first began discussions ,,f,.
assuming ferry operations.
However, nothing has been decided, she said.
But, JPA is also looking into some other "cre-
ative solutions," although Rubin did not dis-
close what they were.


Beaches trolley sponsor is sought


Wal-Mart declines Jax councilor's request,

saying it won't be open for two more years


by LIZA MITCHELL
.STAFF WRITER
Plans to operate a trolley at
the Beaches are still on track
despite a failure to secure the
title sponsorship needed to get
it up and running.
Jacksonville City Councilman
Art Graham Thursday said he is
still searching for a company
willing to pay half of the
$480,000 cost for naming
rights.
"I haven't really progressed,"
he said. "I have a couple of
mockups from JTA but no spon-
sor yet."
Graham said he approached
Jacksonville attorney Eddie
Farah who declined the offer
because he said the price was
too high, especially at the
Beaches which he said is not his
primary market.
The total cost would fund the
pilot project for a two-year peri-
od. The title sponsor would be
required to come up with the
remaining $240,000.
The rest of the funding would
come from private contribu-
tions to allow time for the trol-
ley to build a viable ridership.
Graham said he also plans to
offer local restaurants the
opportunity to provide coupons
to trolley riders trolley for a
$10,000 fee.
"I'm sure I could find the
money but that would defeat
the purpose," he said. "I can't
justify collecting tax dollars for
this until it is a proven entity.
That is why we are using private
dollars." .
Another possible sponsor,
Graham said, was Wal-Mart but


they turned it down because the
timing was not right.
"They thought it was a good
idea but since they are not plan-
ning to open [in Neptune
Beach] for another two years
they felt it was a little prema-
ture," he said. "They said if we
don't have one by then to bring
it back to them."
Neptune Beach City Manager
Jim Jarboe said this week Wal-
Mart has not filed site plans, but
has until April to do so or it will
have to go through the develop-
ment review process all over
again.
Graham said he considered
Wal-Mart a prime candidate
because it provided an opportu-
nity to mitigate concerns over
the retailer bringing more traffic
to the area.
"If the concern truly was
what it was going to do to traf-
fic, the trolley would have
helped get.more cars off. the
road," he said.
Graham detailed his plans for
a weekend trolley service at a
transportation meeting with
JTA last August. The plans called
for the pilot project to be on the
road by April, 2008.
Four trolleys provided by JTA
would operate along A1A dur-
ing the warmer months from
April through Labor Day.
The trolleys will travel from 6
p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, 10 a.m.
to 2 a.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.
to 7 p.m. Sunday from Atlantic
Boulevard to J. Turner Butler
Boulevard.
Since the JTA does not
endorse selling advertising on
the trolleys currently in service


in other areas of the city, nam-
ing rights are available "to let
people know who is sponsoring
it," said Mike Miller, director of
external affairs for JTA.
Miller said the route is still in
the preliminary design stages. It
will travel the length of A1A but
transportation officials are
working on a way to incorpo-
rate popular destination stops
such as the SeaWalk Pavilion.
"We still have enough time to
take care of the logistical
issues," Miller said. "We are on
the fast track to get the route
finished."
Graham said he plans to meet
with an advertising specialist
next week to gain some insight
into pricing and marketing the
idea of a Beaches trolley.
"This is not an original idea.
People have been talking about
this since 1998," he said.
"Everyone thinks this is a great
idea. I just. need to find the
money."

Senators back to form with blowout win


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

Wednesday night's game
against Ed White may have
been a perfect tonic for the
Fletcher girls soccer team.
Senators head coach Nicole
Conrad thought her team
appeared sluggish in a loss to
Fleming Island the Friday fol-
lowing Thanksgiving, but the
turkey-induced after effects of
tryptophan were gone against
the Commanders as Fletcher
cruised to an 8-0 victory.
How dominant were the
Senators? White didn't have a
shot on goal throughout the
contest and the game ended
with 12:33 left in the second
half as senior Sam Hays scored
Fletcher's eighth and game-
clinching goal.
"We could have used this
[perform-
ance]. right
after Thanks- :... ...........
giving,"
Conrad said. We could
"We needed this [perfon
something to
kind of work after Thank
through needed sc
things, a
good game to kind of wC
work on what
we've been things, a g
doing at prac- work on
tice.
"I think we been doing
learned not
to schedule a
tough game
right after Nicol
Thanksgiving Senators
- and
Fleming
Island is a good team. But I
hate excuses. Next year we'll
just have some tough prac-
tices after Thanksgiving and
get back into the schedule
that way."
Michelle Tsengas had a pair
of first-half goals against the
Commanders, with Paige
Subjinski, Jordan Dixon, Cara
Bernreuter, Teale Beckenbach,
Sydney Armin andHays also
cashing in on scoring oppor-
tunities.
SThle \in moves Fletcher to
the positive side of the ledger
with a 4-3-1 season mark
heading into tonight's contest
against district rival Orange
Park. The Senators beat the
Raiders 4-1 at home Nov. 8,
but Conrad said she expects a
tighter game as the team trav-
els to Orange Park.
"I told [players] not to
expect the same type of 4-1
score. It's on their field and
they're a good team so it will
probably be much closer this
time around," she said.
In her first season at the
helm, Conrad, a former player
and coach at Sandalwood,
said she is still learning the
strengths and weaknesses of
this Senators -team.
"I would say I'm learning
more about individual play-
ers," Conrad explained. "I'm
learning more about them,
what they can do, what they
can handle, situations they'd
be better in.

"I'm getting to the individ-
ual level with them and that's
going to help us as a team,
and I think it is already."
As far as coaching philoso-
phy, Conrad said she likes to
see crisp passing, good com-
munication between players
and not too much freelancing.
"I don't like one v. ones at
all except in the attacking
end. I constantly tell them at
practice [to] go around the
defender and not through
them" the coach said. "A lot
of them want to go through
them, but we are totally work-
ing the team thing. Shifting
the ball is better, it's quality
soccer and it saves their legs.
"It's a long season this
week we have three games -
you cannot run at people all
season and make it through to
the end."
Fletcher's
goals, as stat-
ed before the
season even
have used began, are to
win the
nance] right Gateway
giving. We Conference
and district
mething to tes. To that
Ark through end, and to
od game keep her play-
od gametO ers as fresh as
what we've possible
r through the
in practice, long regular-
season cam-
---- paign, Conrad
said she is
e Conrad resting
lead coach starters when-
ever possible
and giving
backups some quality playing
time.
That plan worked well
Wednesday night, with most
of the Senators starters
removed at halftime as the
team built a 6-0 lead.
"At this point of the season
we're fixing things and we're
getting ready for the end,"
said Conrad. "I'm resting peo-
ple that need rest and we're
not,ptishing anything.
"I was trying to get h.thejon;
-.ta'r-rsr6rtdight into the game'
and onto the pitch and seeing
what they need to do. Game
situations are different than
practice."
While the team has experi-
enced some growing pains in
transitioning .to a new coach.
Fletcher's seven seniors have
assumed leadership roles this
year..
Conrad is focusing on
developing younger players,
the future of Senators' soccer.
"We're all in it together,"
she said. "Our goals are
defined for this year and I'm
pleased with where we are at
this point of the season."

Scobee's return is


boost for Jaguars


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST

Of all the injuries the
Jaguars have been confronted
with this season, probably the
luckiest as it turned out -
was also the weirdest.
It happened when Josh
Scobee took himself out of the
lineup on opening day with
an injury to his kicking leg
suffered in practice.
Scobee was lost for four
weeks and a replacement was
quickly signed out of despera-
tion. John Carney wasn't an
inexperienced pick-up, but the
41-year-old traveler had been
around the NFL longer than
some of his teammates had
been on Earth.
"We're lucky to get a man
with his experience like this,"
said Jaguars coach Jack Del
Rio. "He has the know-how to
help the other younger play-
ers, too."
Trouble was, almost every
mate was younger, even old
pros like Fred Taylor. That
wasn't the real problem, how-
ever. Carney was as accurate a
kicker as one could want, but
he limited in terms of field
goal distance, as well as with
kickoffs.
Carney was a nice guy,
extremely well-liked and
dependable. But when it came
to leg power, Scobee had, and
still has, the kick of a mule.
Being 16 years younger is also
a big boost for Josh.
But bad breaks sometimes
turn out well and so it is now
with the Jags and their real
placekicker. Scobee returned to
action two weeks ago against
San Diego, booming a 48-yard
field goal as if to announce to
the world, "Hey folks, I'm
back. Thanks, Mr. Carney for a
job well done, but I'm back."
In his fourth year of service
after being selected in the fifth


round of the 2004 draft,
Scobee has won fans in the
stands, in the boondocks and
in the media for his accuracy
and quiet demeanor. While so
many of today's players seem
to believe they've been hired
as vaudeville entertainers,
Jacksonville's kicker goes
about his business without
cute dances, bows to the
stands or calling attention to
himself.
It's refreshing; he just plays
football.
Scobee's injury was an odd
one; "I've never done any-
thing like that before," he said
of straining a quadriceps mus-
cle. "It was like hitting the turf
behind the ball. Hitting it fat.
You know how it will sting
your hand [in golf]."
Scobee knows all about hit-
ting golf balls, being one of
the best linksmen amongst his
fellow Jaguars. He said he's
never before suffered an injury
of that type, and was incredu-
lous that it happened in prac-
tice.
After weeks of treatment,
Scobee was able to come back
for the Chargers game and has
been as good as ever. That's
plenty good since he connect-
ed on 78.5 percent (73 of 93)
field goals coming into this
season. On kickoffs, he ranked
second in the NFL with a
team-record 52 touchbacks on
223 kickoff attempts over the
last three seasons.
Scobee was named AFC
Special Teams Player of the
Week for his performance last
Sunday in the Jaguars' 36-14
victory over Buffalo. He con-
verted a career-best five field
goals (46, 33, 22, 23 and 20
yards) and tied Jacksonville's
team record.
He also converted all three
extra-point attempts for a
career-high of 18 points in the
game.

from the continental U.S.
"Hawaii is intimidating any-
way because the waves are big
and you feel like you have to
go out there and prove your-
self," said Petroni. "I ended up
squeaking through the heats
and got third. When they
announced I made it and that
I'm the first East Coaster since
Lisa Andersen and the only
American, I just felt so proud to
represent our country. I always
think of my Dad and his whole
attitude. Never give up."
Petroni spent four years as
one of 100 professional surfers
competing in the women's
World Qualifying Series (WQS),
equivalent to the minor league
of surfing. She entered the'
2006 season as No. 1 in the
WQS but continued to slip
back in the rankings. She ques-
tioned whether she was good
enough. She questioned the
nature of competitive surfing
and if she has what it takes to
be one of the elite 18 surfers on
the WCT.

LIFE-CHANGING EVENTS:
Then two days before
Thanksgiving of 2006, Petroni's
father, Gerard, suffered a brain
aneurism and almost died. He
is still in rehabilitation.
"What happened to my dad
really humbled me," Karina
said. "I had gone through this
phase where I was having way
too much fun on the road and
I was out of shape. It made me
think I have all of these talents
God gave me; I should use
them."
Petroni returned to Australia
to train and prepare for the
2007'season when she received
more tragic news from home.
On April 15, her best friend,
Matt Gray, 21, of Atlantic
Beach, died when he was struck
by an SUV while walking home
along Ocean Blvd.
"I think anytime you experi-
ence a tragedy it changes you,"
Petroni said. "I was getting in
shape and I felt great physically
but mentally I wasn't there yet.
"In competition you have to
have both. I didn't have any
expectations for the year. After
I lost my best friend I had an
outlook on life in general to
just go for broke. Every day is a-
new day and there is not much
chance to lose after that. Then I
started excelling and in my
own mind I was happy."

SURPRISE SUCCESS:
Petroni hadn't surfed for two
weeks before the 6-star U.S.
Open of Surfing July 25-28 at
Huntington Beach Pier, Cal.
She was home visiting her fam-
ily in Atlantic Beach and hang-
ing out with friends. No one
expected anything out of
Petroni and she didn't expect
anything of herself. But she
ended up placing second to
longtime friend Stephanie
Gilmore, of Australia. Gilmore
is the current World No. 1
surfer on the ASP women's
world tour. With the finish
Petroni jumped from 31st to
llth in the WQS rankings.
"It was so rewarding. I got a
lot of recognition; a lot of
respect and I flew up in the *
rankings," she said.. "Then I
thought, 'Maybe I do have a
chance of qualifying.' I had lost
that motive for a while."
For the 2008 season, Petroni
is still planning to compete in
the majority of the 5-star and
6-star events which includes
surfers on the WQS and WCT.
Her first WCT contest is the
Roxy Pro on Australia's Gold
Coast Feb. 23 to March 6.
"I love being the underdog;
it's the greatest feeling because
there's no pressure and then if
you do well it's this wonderful


surprise," Petroni said. "There
will be more eyes on me now
that I have the whole East
Coast on my shoulders."

EARLY YEARS: The East
Coast surf scene has been
watching Petroni since she first
started competing in the
Eastern Surfing Association at
the age. of 9.
Petroni was born in the
American Canal Zone at the
Isthmus of Panama. She grew
up in a jungle paradise next to
the Panama Canal, where her

third and earned a spot on the prestigious women's World Championship Tour for 2008.


father was a sea captain pilot-
ing ships through the canal.
Her mother, Reidunn, original-
ly from Norway, stayed home
to raise Karina and her three
older siblings.
Petroni began surfing on a
boogie board at
the age of 2
with her father
and brother,
Erik. The family
nicknamed her
"Mowgli" after
the character
from "The
Jungle Book," -
because she was
always barefoot
in the jungle
exploring, surf-
ing and fishing.
The Petroni
family began
dividing their
time between
Panama and
Atlantic Beach'
in 1997 so her
father could be
close to Naval
Station
Mayport. They u l
permanently
moved to
Atlantic Beach in 2000 after the
Panama Canal and the Canal
Zone were turned over to the
Panamanian government.
Petroni was 12 years old at
the time, home-schooled by
her mother and spent much of
her time surfing.
Mitch Kaufmann, director of
the North Florida District of the
Eastern Surfing Association,


remembers the first time he
saw her surf.
"She has this smooth style
and confidence in the water,"
Kaufmann said. "She has this
fearless approach that is just in
her. She wants to be the best."
Her brother
Erik, 37, a
surfer and for-
mer competitor
in Panama, saw
her potential
early and began
to coach Karina
and manage
her surfing
career. Their
travels take
them to
California,
Puerto Rico,
S Australia,
Mexico and
S Indonesia every
year where
Karina explores
the coastline
surfing some of
the best waves
in the world.
"Florida is
are the perfect
learning
ground for surf-
ing because you have sand bot-
Stom, warm water, smaller
' wavhitd'y6ou-lea rn to surf
junk," Erik said. "That's the rea-
son why there are more world
championship titles from
Florida than the rest of the
world combined [Kelly Slater
with eight, Lisa Andersen with
four and Frieda Zamba with
four]. But then you get to the

point where you have to travel
to surf bigger and better waves
if you want to become a better,
surfer."
Erik Petroni is also his sister's
chief photographer and publi-
cist. He designed her website
karinapetroni.com and helped
her gain sponsorships over the
years. Karina has been featured
in national magazines such as
Teen Vogue, Teen People,
Cosmo Girl and Girls Life in
addition to national surfing
publications.
"She went through this
teenage thing for a couple of
years where I had to back off
and let her do her thing," Erik
Petroni said. "Now she is ready
to be coached again. I think I
can get her to the very top, no
doubt."
In 2003, Karina began surfing
in WQS events all over the
globe and continued high
school via the internet as she
'traveled around the world. She
and her family moved to
Australia for two months so she
could train. By the time she
was 18, she was the youngest
surfer, male or female, to hold
three amateur championship
titles, the Eastern, U.S. and
National Championship, and a
S"pro win" in Kitty Hawk, N,C.
She was the youngest suriers ,- .
male or female, to win a profes-
sional surfing event in the his-
tory of the ASP. She also won
consecutive silver medals at the
2004 and 2005 World Junior
Surfing Championships.

HIGHER CALLING: But with
the all of the surfing success
Karina still yearned for a higher
purpose. Erik introduced her to
the Oceanic Preservation
Society, a non-profit organiza-
tion seeking to promote aware-
ness of global aquatic ecosys-
tems. The society's motto is,
"We're not trying to save the
whole planet, just 70 percent of
it."
Karina recently spent two
weeks in Japan with the society
filming in an attempt to raise
awareness and put an end to
the mass dolphin and whale
slaughtering in a secret cove in
Japanese National Park.
"Competing is great; it's fan-
tastic, but you're out there
exposing yourself and just try-
ing to make yourself better and
better; it's a goal and I love it'
but all my life I have, this
embedded in my head from my
parents to strive to make a dif-
ference in the world,".she said.
"The OP Society is really
keen on saving the ocean and
its wildlife. In Japan it was
more like an intervention and
reeducating the Japanese peo-.
ple. The mass slaughtering is


horrible and the meat is highly
contaminated with mercury so
it's terrible for them to be eat-
ing it. It was the best experi-
ence I've been a part of in my
life. It was a huge group effort
and so gratifying to be a part of
something like that."
Petroni is also working on a
television program, "Escape,"
about her experiences traveling
the world. The program will
include her surfing the North
and South Poles and up the
Amazon River. She has the sup-
port of her surfing sponsors but
hopes mainstream companies
that are interested in raising
eco awareness will come for-
ward and partner with her.
The show will include educa-
tional aspects to the program
such as the culture and history
of the exotic places she visits.
Local filmmaker Josh
Hansbrough, who has filmed
Petroni surfing in various loca-
tions over the years, is collabo-
rating on the project as well as
Erik Petroni and adventurer,
Bill Bailey, whom they original-
ly met in the Panama Canal
Zone.
"We want'to capture all the
crazy moments that go on on
tour and all the whacky places I
get to visit," Petroni said. "I
want to create a show with
youth living life and exploring
the world. There is so much
garbage on TV. I think this will
be a fun and exciting way for
people see the world, learn
something and hopefully
inspire people to get out there."
Although Karina is proud to
claim Atlantic Beach as her
home when people ask where
she's from she laughs and
answers, "Earth," because she
has spent so much of her life
traveling. And her 2008 sched-
ule is no different. She will be

surfing and competing in
Australia, Europe, South
America, South Africa,
California and Hawaii.
"The traveling is the best part
because I get to see all of these
beautiful places;" Petroni said.
"But now the pressure is on.
I thought making it on the tour
was going to be this big relief,
but it's the opposite because
now the elite surfers are con-
centrated in the top 18. I'll just
have to keep reminding myself,
Never Give Up."

Poinsettia season upon us


rT is the season for the
never-to-be-forgotten,
glorious poinsettia
plants.
Somehow, they have
always been there from the
beginning, even without all
the other commercialism and
glitz.
It seems that no matter
what your ethnic/religious
background, most everyone
buys or receives a poinsettia.
It is just a part of the holiday
season.
Over the,years we have
seen the hybridizers go crazy
with new combinations of
colors and leaves, but my
favorite is still the red, old-
fashioned ones. I have not
bought mine yet, but am
planning to'by the beginning
of next week, and I always
buy large ones that continue
to amaze me.
Once bought, then it is
always a challenge to keep
them looking as nice as when
I purchased them, and I sus-
pect that is a challenge for
you as well.
Today is a refresher course,
a quick one, in doing just
that. The care of the poinset-

tia once you bring it home is
very important, but it is also
important to select one that
is in good shape to begin
with. Many of the stores offer
them for very little money,
and they are on display out-
side on stands in the wind
and sun, drooping, in or out
of saggy bags, but only cost-
ing a few dollars. A great
deal?
In my opinion, they are
not because I am now in
charge of keeping this neg-
lected ugly thing alive and


pretty. Sometimes they
respond quickly and become
lovely again, but more often
than not, these guys are
ready for the trash long
before I have time to enjoy
them.
Also, remember that you
should never buy them at the
beginning of a long shopping
day unless you take them
home right away. How would
you like to sit in a hot car
while your mom shops the
day away, only to be taken
home, plopped on the front
porch, not given a drink of
water, and then expected to
be glamorous the next morn-
ing?
So, the bottom line is to
select ones with taut leaves
and flower bracts, feel the
soil to be sure it is not bone
dry, and once purchased; take
them home to a protected
spot until you have time to
take charge of their care.
If they are to be used for
inside decorations, there are
a few rules that will help you.

not necessarily the blasting all- afternoon

be sure they are not on top of or under a
vent; the heat or air conditioning will do
a number on them that will not be pret-

to or in front of your fireplace, and on
that rare occasion when you have a fire
for ambiance, you forget and leave the
plant in place. By the way, even the arti-

Second, for interior display, be sure the
plant is high enough to keep curious pets
or toddlers away from it. Although the
plant is not considered a poison, it is
considered to be toxic. Confusing yes,
but the bottom line is that if ingested, it
can cause very adverse reactions in
humans and pets, and possibly could
lead to death. Mostly the sap is the prob-
lem and it creates an allergic itchiness or
redness. But, this is critical to remember.
And if you touch the plant and then pet
your dog or play with the baby, or your
husband for that matter, be sure and
wash your hands before touching some-
thing else Don't be paranoid, but don't
be ignorant either.
Thirdly, watering the poinsettia always
seems to be the biggest hang-up, and no
one, not even me, can tell you precisely
how much and how often to water it.
However, here are some guidelines: 1. If

This work of art by Mary Atwood is part of the new exhibit, "27 Reasons for the Season," at
Bethel Gallery in Ponte Vedra Presbyterian Church. The artwork illustrates Colossians 2:9 to 10,
which says, "For in Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been
given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority."

Cont. from B-1
police when a number of chil-
dren are violently murdered in
his neighborhood.
Each of the children's deaths
occur in ways that mirror
events in his horrific short sto-
ries, most of which were never
published. Katurian, who is
innocent, must fight for his life
and for his stories.
The play was nominated for
both a Tony and a Drama Desk
award for best play, and every
major player in the Broadway
cast was nominated for a Tony
for Best Actor or Best
Supporting Actor.
The show's director, Jennie
'Jarvis, warns audiences that
the subject matter in "The
Pillowman" could be extreme-
ly disturbing. She advises more
timid audience members to
think carefully before purchas-
ing a ticket.
"This story is, at its heart, a
story about death and over-
coming death, and it explores
this theme in a variety of ways
some of them violently,"
Jarvis said. "Keep in mind, the
investigators in this play are
investigating the murders of
children."


However, Jarvis said that,
people shouldn't be turned off
simply because of the violent
subject matter.
"The play is so well written,
just exceptionally well crafted,
that everyone who's read it has
immediately asked me when
we open," said Jarvis, who also
directed "Closer."
The cast includes A.J. Pratt,
Wesley Nielsen, Jennifer
Gagnon, and Jeff Wells. Justin
Bell and Erin Thursby, both rel-
ative newcomers to the
Jacksonville Theater scene,
round out the-cast.
Continuing the group's posi-
tive relationship with the Body
Gallery of Jacksonville, this
production will be staged in a
converted yoga studio.
"Audiences were first pretty
wary of the idea of a theater
company using a yoga studio
as an acting space, but now
that they've seen that it works,
that it's an intimate space that
really allows you to experience
the story along with the char-
acters, people are excited to
experience this kind of theater
again," Jarvis says.
"We've had a lot of positive
feedback about the creation of


an independent theater group
here in town."

'Elizabeth' sequel lacks original's flair


by SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR
When Elizabeth ruled
England during the
late 16th century,
she set the New World stage
for the emergence of
America.
Her queenly decisions, wise
when viewed in light of the
time's standards, in many
ways shaped contemporary
avant garden thinking about
liberty. This was evident in
the epic biopic, "Elizabeth,"
an art house bombshell in
1998.
Now the same director,
Shekhar Kapur, has brought
together the same cast for
"Elizabeth: The Golden Age."
Though a sequel to its ele-
gant predecessor and fantas-
tic for history buffs, it lacks
the flair.and pageantry of the
original.
In both features, Australian
Cate Blanchett plays Queen
Elizabeth I. She's perfect; her
grace, manner and good
looks are ideal for the por-
trayal. Clive Owen recreates

Sir Walter Raleigh, in some
historical accounts a clandes-
tine romantic companion of
the queen. Though most stu-
dents of history don't accept
this (Elizabeth was known as
"the virgin queen"), it's
included to add spice.
"Elizabeth: The Golden
Age" opens with a portrayal
of something we're experi-
encing today: holy war. It
isn't the Jslamic ast against j
* he Chlirstian w"est: it'
Protestant against Catholic.
The Pope has declared the
Protestant queen and break-
away kingdom heretical and
wants Mary Queen of Scots,
played by Samantha Morton,
on the English throne
instead.
Mary is Catholic,
Elizabeth's cousin, and has
been imprisoned as she's
made no secret about want-
ing to supplant her relative.
It's a political, not religious
move. The English are free to
worship as they please.
In Spain, Catholic King
Philip II also wants Mary on
the throne. Phillip badly

COULD YOURCHILD BE AT RISK?
Your child may have 20/20 eyesight
but 0/0 vision. The difference is critical.
Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see,
Vision is the ability to identify interpret,
comprehend, and act on what is seen.
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most eye care professionals
measure eyesight. They do not include
the kinds of testing that can find visually
related learning problems.
Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat
vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
Unable to sit still; cannot stay on task for any
length of time.
SVery clumsy; poor eye-hand coordination.o
Does written work very slowly; often fails to
complete a task.
Has difficulty copying visual material;
constantly looks up and down.
Moves entire head instead of eyes when
readittg.
Reversals-for example confusing the words
"was and saw" or letters "hb and d".
Is disorganized and frustrated when studying
visual information.
Makes frequent, "careless" errors.
If your son or daughter, age 7-18, has one or more of these behaviors. call
246-1952 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems.
It could be the most important phone call you will make during hisilher school years.

Here comes baby! A guide to childproofing your home


you've read every book,
taken the classes. The
baby shower gifts are
piled high, the nursery's all
decked out. The excitement of
the imminent arrival of a new
little person couldn't be high-
er. But have you baby-proofed
the house? Yes, newborns
can't crawl to the top of the
stairs, pull a bookcase over, or
get underneath the sink. But
within a few months, you'll
wish you had taken care of
anything that could cause you
baby harm. Our advice: do it
now, because the next few
months (if not years) will go
by in a blur.
Professional baby-proofers
are the ultimate protection
against household hazards for
your bundle of joy. Their serv-
ices can cost $300 and up,
depending on the size of your
house. But consider baby-
proofing yourself. It'll have
you seeing your house in a
new way, a perspective that
puts safety first at all times.
Kids are a lifelong commit-
ment and keeping your home
safe for them will be too.
There are literally hundreds of
products out there for every
age range and potentially haz-
ardous situation, sO the
process will likely be an ongo-
ing one.
So, where to begin? Many
moms recommend you begin
by putting yourself in your
baby's booties. Try to get a
view of the world from your
baby's perspective by crawling
around on all fours. You'll be
surprised by how many
threats lurk in the baby zone:
2-3 feet from the floor up.


HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'


One mom said that during
this exercise she discovered
staples poking through the
underside of one of her tables.
Most dangers in the home
are far more obvious, howev-
er. While not all accidents can
be avoided (they are just part
of being a kid) there are a host
of products out there to help
you reduce the threat of
something dangerous happen-
ing. These mini-projects are
easy enough to do yourself,
but of course you can also
hire a company to come to
your home and do it for you.
Kitchen
Housing dangerous utensils,
toxic cleaning products and
the oven, the kitchen is a
good place to kick your baby-
proofing projects into gear.
Start with one of the most
obvious tasks: locking the
kitchen cabinets and drawers.
While you don't need to tack-
le all of them, you'll want to
think about baby-proofing the


ones close to the floor that
contain anything hazardous.
(Or, if you aren't crazy about
the idea of your child crawl-
ing in or removing items from
lower cabinets, do them all.)
Equip cabinets with safety
latches. All are pretty inexpen-
sive, easy to install and are
either self adhesive or require
the use of a drill and screw-
driver. Just make sure your
drawers and/or handles are
compatible with the products
you are buying as they come
outfitted for different sizes.
Remember, eventually your
baby will be able to reach
drawers, so you may want to
buy a couple of locks for
when the time comes.
It won't be long before your
baby is a toddler and wants to
help prepare dinner. While he
or she may be a little gourmet
in the making, it's best to pro-
tect little hands from burns. A
stove guard will prevent chil-
dren from reaching up onto
the burners and/or pulling
pots off. If the stove's knobs
are within arms length, plastic
covers are available for those,
too. And finally, consider
investing in a lock to prevent
your child from opening the
oven door itself.
The Living Room
Your baby will probably
spend a lot of time in the liv-
ing room, so make sure none
of the furniture is wobbly or
otherwise showing signs of
instability. Kids frequently use
furniture to pull themselves
up or for support, so a shaky
piece could be an accident in
the making. Reinforce furni-
ture with L brackets before the


baby is crawling, or simply
retire the piece until your
young one is steady on his or
her feet. Many professional
baby-proofers say that your
coffee table is the most dan-
gerous piece of furniture in
your house. The sharp corners
are deadly for wobbly toddlers
and many infant head injuries
have been caused by coffee
tables. Consider purchasing a
protective cushion to wrap
around your table or tem-
porarily replace it with an
upholstered ottoman.
Bigger furniture (such as
bookcases or entertainment
centers) should be strapped to
the wall with a latch. Simply
screw the latch onto the wall's
stud and attach it to the furni-
ture. If you live in an area
prone to earthquakes, you
may want to make them a
permanent fixture for the
safety of all family members.
Stairwells should be blocked
off with safety gates at the top
and bottom.
Sharp corners on your furni-
ture and fireplace hearth can
present a problem, so take the
edge off with corner covers or
padding. These are incredibly
cheap and come in all differ-
ent sizes and colors. Another
plus is that they require
almost no work. Simply
remove the backing and stick
it on the surface.
Cords from shades and
blinds should be kept well out
of reach from kids to prevent
strangulation. You can either
wrap them up or let a gizmo
do it for you. This simple
piece of plastic houses the
cords without creating a tan-


There's nothing petite about petite sirah


f ever there is a name for .
wine that is misleading, it's
petite sirah. An immense
wine that can make your hair
stand up as well as stain your
teeth, there is nothing petite
about this wine. Brawny and
tannic, it is as masculine as a
young barolo a man's wine
to pit alongside a slab of beef
on a cold winter day. While
you're outdoors in freezing
temperatures. Without a shirt.
Oh, yeah, Mabel, tonight's the
night.
We blazed through 19 petite
sirahs.on a recent Saturday
with ouriall-male tasting
group and found several to
recommend. By the end of the
tasting, every one of us had
red-gray teeth that took a
good brushing to restore to
their natural color. Petite sirah
has the effect on you.
Known as durif when it was
first grown in the Rhone
region in the late 19th centu-
ry, petite sirah is gaining pop-
ularity in California thanks
largely to the active promo-
tion of the group "P.S. I Love
You."
Petite sirah berries are small
and thick skinned, which
gives the wine its high,
mouth-coating tannins and
acidity. They are noted gener-
ally by their deep color and
their blackberry and black
pepper flavors. Often high in
alcohol, they are suited to
long-term aging.
In their youth, the wines
may be too tannic for most
palates. But producers like
Bogle and Concannon the


TOM MARQUART
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'. -
first producer to make petite
sirah have managed to
bring the fruit forward.
Here are several we liktd:
Epiphany Rodney's
Vineyard Petite Sirah 2004
($30). The grapes come from a
Fess Parker Estate and the
winemaker is Fess' son, Eli. It
was one of our favorites of the
tasting good substance but
good blackberry, raspberry
fruit.
Earthquake Petite Sirah
2004 ($28). Made by Michael-
David Family of Wines, this
full-bodied wine is made from
grapes grown in a Lodi vine-
yard planted around 1906.
Black cherry and blackberry
flavors with hints of leather
and vanilla.
Mettler Family Vineyards
Petite Sirah 2004 ($25). Inky
in color, blueberry and spice
aromas with layered berry fla-
vors and ripe tannins.
Concannon Heritage Petite
Sirah 2004 ($50). This was


THE BEACHES LEADERi

PONTE VEDRA LEADER

www.beachesleader.comJ


one of the best wines of the
tasting and not a surprise.
SConcannon is the granddaddy
of petite sirah. This is the
most expensive of its four
petite sirahs. Extracted dark
berry fruit, serious tannins
and excellent complexity.
Ehrhardt Estates Petite
Sirah 2004 ($15). Full-bodied
blackberry flavors with black
pepper and spice notes.
Pedroncelli Dry Creek
Valley Petite Sirah 2003
($15). Good value from an old
producer, this petite sirah
,offers good extracted blackber-
ry flavors with a hint of blue-'
berries and chocolate.
Bogle Petite Sirah 2005
($11). Generous berry and
currant flavors with a touch of
spice and cedar. Firm tannins
but very approachable now.
Girard Napa Valley Petite
Sirah 2005 ($28). Allspice and
chocolate aromas with for-
ward plum and black cherry
flavors. It's another one of
these wines that can be rea-
sonably enjoyed without any
cellaring.

impressed.with the red wines
from this venerable Napa
Valley winery for years.
However, the last couple of
releases have been stunning.
Under the direction of Mike

cabernet is a good value.

gled mess.
Open windows should be
secured with guards to pre-
vent your children from
falling through them. If these
scream jailbird to you, go with
a window wedge instead.
Think of this as a doorstop
but for a window that allows
it to open only slightly.
Electronics
Pretty much every house-
hold appliance has a cord
attached to it, and nowadays
we are more plugged in than
ever. Protect your baby from
getting into power strips by
enclosing them in a cover.
Plastic tubing keeps webs of
cords under control, keeps
your kids from pulling at
them, and looks a lot neater,
too.
Covering outlets has always
been a must, and products
nowadays have come a long


way. Since you are a Jane,
install a brand new faceplate
that automatically locks when
a plug is removed. Priced at
under $10, you won't have to
worry about your child chok-
ing on an outlet cover should
they manage to pry it free.
A new baby in the house is
both exciting and a little
nerve-wracking. Even the best
child-proofed homes can't pre-
vent all mishaps, but you can
greatly reduce the likelihood
of injury with some careful
planning. And a home you
know is safe for your child is
one that will allow you to
relax and enjoy your baby
that much more. And as any
new parent will tell you, any-
thing that lets you sleep that
much sounder at night is
worth its weight in gold.

Pet Tales wants you!
Actually, Pet Tales wants your pet, whether he
walks, crawls, runs, creeps or jumps.
Whether she purrs, barks, snorts, neighs or
hisses. Whether your pet is furry, slimy, scaly,
hairy or prickly. Whether it has four legs or eight (or none).
Whether it's timid, bold, frenetic or calm.
All we require is that the pet be legal.
And loved.
Remember, every pet owner has a pet tale.


Deck the halls, but watch your pets


In preparing for the holidays,
the web site www.noelnoel-
noel.com urges pet owners to
keep in mind the safety of the
four-legged members of the
family. What is a decoration to a
human may be a dramatic
change of environment for a
pet, tempting him or her to
explore the new sights and
scents placed in the home envi-
ronment in prepare 'for
Christmas festivities. Be aware,
the web site suggests, that some
of the decorations can pose
health risks for curious pets.
Many families choose to deco-
rate with live plants, which ani-
mals may be tempted to explore
with their mouths. Pets should
be kept away from dangerous
plants such as poinsettias, holly,
and mistletoe, the web site cau-
tions. Mistletoe, if eaten, can

adoption day
The St. Johns County Pet
Adoption Center is having a spe-
cial adoption day from 9 a.m. to
2 p.m. Saturday.
Both cats and dogs, young
and adult, are available for adop-
tion. The adoption fees of $45
for a male and $55 for a female
include spaying or neutering
and all shots.
Volunteers and staff members
will be available to assist visitors.
The adoption center is located
off U.S. 1 between County Road
210 and Palencia, at 160 N.
Stratton Road. Call 209-6190 for
additional information or direc-
tions.


cause decreased heart rate and a
drop in blood pressure. Ivy is
another common decoration
that can pose health dangers If
eaten, it can cause diarrhea, con-
vulsions, and if in large quanti-
ties, even death, in the furry
family members.
One of the biggest dog and cat
holiday temptations is the
Christmas tree with its fresh
smell and bright, colorful deco-
rations. Dropped needles from
the tree can become lodged in a
pet's esophagus if ingested, mak-
ing it painful when swallowing.
Tinsel from the tree may cause
stomach problems or choking.
Obviously, any broken glass
ornaments should be carefully
removed so that there are no
remnants to become stuck in
paws, the web site advises.
On final Christmas tree con-


cem is the water in the tree
stand. Cover the tree base tight-
ly with tree skirting to keep the
pet from drinking the water. If
ingested, water from a tree stand
can cause diarrhea, vomiting,
loss of appetite or mouth sores.
Provide your pet with appro-
priate treats rather than samples
of "people" goodies if you feel
the need to include the pet in
the holiday celebration. Many
rich foods will cause an upset
stomach in a pet.
Following these guidelines will
help insure that your pet will
have a safe time during the hol-
idays. With all of the hustle and
bustle that comes with hoJiday
activities, remember to save a
little time to spend with your
pet. Give him the gift of your
attention: He will think that is
the best present of all.

chicken, mushroom and toma-
to dish to celebrate a French
military victory, it. was a his-
toric moment for food lovers.
The dish was Chicken a la
Marengo, which went on to
gain celebrity status in.
America during the early 1960s
when Julia Child began to
wield her whisk on public tele-
vision. Now the famous dish is
back, ready to win a new gen-
eration of fans in a lighter,
streamlined version that calls
for sauteing chicken breasts
and white mushrooms, then
braising them briefly with
tomatoes, white wine and tar-
ragon.
You can obtain more infor-
mation on the history and
health benefits of fresh mush-
rooms, plus a collection of
easy, nutritious mushroom
recipes at www.mushroomin-

o ur Horoscope


by CHARLES COOPER
ARIES (March 21 to April 19I You're full of
vim and vinegar this week. However, try not
to be overly critical as a result. Enthusiasm is
fine, but don't accompany this with a sour
attitude.
TAURUS (April 20 to May -20 Restlessness
mars the beginning ot the week You feel
trapped in a boring routine. Be patient as
things heat up pretty soon.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20i A fresh finan-
cial venture is on the horizon for you. Be sure
to keep your eyes open for this opportunity.
Later in the week, trust in a friend's advice.
CANCER dune 21 to July 22) \V.hile you'll
want to park yourself in fiont of the tube this
week, get up and get moving! There's plenty
to do concerning holiday preparations. Over
the weekend, domestic chores need tending
to.
LEO.(July 23 to August 221 You're right to
consider a co-worker's idea as half-baked.
However, you can put on the finishing
touches and make it work. Later in the week,
pay attention to matters of health.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
There's some minor trouble on the home
front. If you just stay out of the way, it
resolves itself. This weekend, shopping is in
order.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22 You're
rather introspective as the week begins. This
results in new insights. By week's end, you're


sure of the changes you want to make in your
life.
SCORPIO IOctober 23 to November 21)
Get out those vacation brochures. This pro-
tides a great "break" from the holiday frenzy.
Later in the week, children require extra
attention.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
211 Legal and contractual matters are favored
this week. These could very well relate to real
estate. Over the weekend, family members
come up with great holiday ideas.
CAPRICORN IDecember 22 to January 191
An outing of a cultural nature is possible
midweek. On the work front, bigwigs are par-
ticularly demanding. Fortunately, you're up
to the task.
AQUARIUS iJanuary 20 to February 18l
Indulging in nostalgia is fine. Just don't let it
make you melancholy as you're wont to do at
times. Later in the week, an opportunity for
advancement arises at work.
PISCES February 19 to March 20) Your
mate is concerned with your work hours.
Perhaps you have been neglecting this per-
son. If so, remedy this over the weekend with
a romantic dinner for just the two of you.
CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS: Kenneth
Branagh, December 10; Rita Moreno,
December 11; Rush Limbaugh, December 12;

S Timely Tips


by KATE WORTH
SHOPPER SAVVY Many
stores have. the policy to
match their competitor's
prices. If you see something
in the newspaper that you
want, but don't want to travel
to that particular store to get
it,'cut the advertisement out
and take it to your local store.
They will usually price match,
or if, it's the same product
only cheaper, they will also
match the price. Virginia K.
MILDEW REMOVER Wipe
off mildew on shower cur-
tains with baking soda paste
and lemon juice. Use equal
parts vinegar and water for
shower doors. Wanda F.
LOWER HEATING BILLS -
Wear layers_ .:of_. clothing


instead of turning up the
thermostat in the house. For
every degree you lower the
thermostat, you save three
percent on your heating bill.
Try a hooded sweatshirt,
lightweight sweaters or slacks
made of closely woven fabric.
Linda R.
AIR DRY When the dish-
washer has completed its final
rinse, wait for the steam to
settle and then open the door
and let the dishes air dry. It's
much faster and uses less
energy. Chrissy D.
'RENT IT! If you need an
occasional special tool that
you can't borrow from some-
one else, rent it rather than
buy it. Carlos P.
BRRRR! Use bathroom


fans sparingly in the winter
since the fans remove warm
air. Lisa V.
ORGANIZATION Keep
instructions, receipts, warran-
ty cards, etc., for appliances
and equipment in a file folder
specified for that purpose. A
little organization can save
you a big headache in the
long run. Maria C.
KEEPING TRACK When
disassembling something
with many small parts, use
an empty egg carton to put
the parts in. Number each
compartment in the order
you place the parts in, and
when it's time to put it back
together, just go in reverse
order. John'S.

in the 1920s by Richard Drew
of Minnesota Mining and
Manufacturing, Co. Duct
tape (the World War II mili-


tary version) was first created
and manufactured in 1942 by
the Johnson and Johnson
Permacel Division.

The blue whale can pro-
duce sounds up to 188 deci-
bels. This is the loudest sound
produced by a living animal
and has been detected as far
away as 530 miles.
Tremendous erosion at the
base of Niagara Falls under-
mines the shale cliffs, and as
a result, the falls have receded
approximately seve miles
over the last 10,000 years.
