considerable sums, according to
city officials.
Atlantic Beach city officials
withdrew approximately $12.3
million essentially the sum
total of the city's, financial
resources, with the exception of
pension funds hours before the
account was frozen and left
$10,000 in to keep the account

Building officials in Atlantic
Beach are drafting a new ordinance
to address abandoned or partially
demolished buildings.
The proposed law is sparked by
the site of the former Palms apart-
ments on Mayport Road, which has
been partially demolished for sever-
al months, awaiting development..
Building Official Dave Hufstetler
-said-that the ordinance will propose


technology to address the growing
need for power while protecting the
environment.
Solar photovoltaic technology
converts energy from light or solar
radiation directly into electrical
energy, using a solar cell.
"The crucial thing is we are look-
ing to balance our source of power,"
Jacksonville Beach City Manager


a time limit that a project can be
abandoned or partially demolished,
although no time has been estab-
lished yet.
City Attorney Alan Jensen told
Commissioners Monday that the
draft will be presented at the first
meeting in January.
Hufstetler said that the ordinance
was "inspired" by the situation at
the Palms, but that there are other
similar projects in Atlantic Beach
which have also caused a need for
the ordinance.


George Forbes said Thursday.
"We are looking at green power
and our renewable portfolio in an
effort to keep our C02 down to
address concerns for the future."
Forbes said the use of natural gas
by Beaches Energy Services helps
maintain low levels of carbon diox-
ide compared to coal.
Beaches Energy Service is also


"We don't really have something
for abandoned buildings," he said.
There are several projects in the
city where people have started to
build something and then run out
of money, he said.
The Commission has previously
expressed concern about the site of
the partially demolished former
Palms apartments at the city's
entrance after multiple citizen
complaints.
Hufstetler said that building per-
mits are only good for six months


looking at the use of solar technolo-
gy to reduce customer power load
overall by increasing awareness
about consumption.
Forbes said the utility was one of
the first to promote the use of CFL
bulbs as a method of preserving
energy. Solar technology is also con-
sidered part of that demand-side
management program, he said.

from the time that they are issued
or from each approved inspection.
"You can perpetuate a permit if
you continue to pass your inspec-
tions," he said, adding that you can
also apply for extensions.
However, the building permit at
the Palms has expired, he said.
The proposed ordinance is still in
its preliminary phases and there
will be several meetings with the
city manager and city attorney to
discuss its details before it is pro-
posed, Hufstetler said.


"It does a better job of showing
people ways to reduce their energy
consumption.," he said. "And in the
future it will help reduce the need
for more power plants."

Woman robbed by



gunman at bank ATM


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A Bradenton woman was robbed at gun-
point just before 10 p.m. Monday in the.
drive thru of a south Jacksonville Beach bank
at an ATM.
The victim, 19, told police that she was in
her car in the drive thru lane of the bank near
Marsh Landing Parkway at 9:50 p.m. when
the suspect pulled into an adjacent lane in a
late model gold or tan Crown Victoria, stop-
ping just before it left the driveway.
Police said a passenger in the Vehicle got
out and approached the victim and her two
passengers with a small black semi automatic
handgun in his hand.


The man, described as a Hispanic male in
his late 20's with acne on his face and sport-
ing a gold grille in the lower part' of his
mouth, immediately began yelling at the pas-
sengers to exit the vehicle. /
Both complied and the suspect leaned into
the vehicle, shoving the gun toward the driv-
er and repeatedly demanding that she'give
him her money.
According to a police report, the teller
machine had not yet dispensed the woman's
money but she handed the suspect $53 from
her wallet. She also mistakenly gave the man
her bank card.
The suspect ran back and jumped into the
passenger seat of the vehicle which took off
in an unknown direction.

Squadron coming home
The groundcrew members of
the VS-32 "Maulers," a S-3B
squadron stationed at Naval Air
Station Jacksonville, will return
to Jacksonville after a six-
month deployment aboard the
aircraft carrier USS Enterprise
(CVN 65) Sunday. The VS-32
groundcrew personnel will walk
off USS Enterprise to meet their
families on the Mayport pier on
Sunday. (The VS-32 aircraft will
fly into NAS Jacksonville on
Saturday.)
This is the last deployment
for the S-3 Viking squadron, as
the aircraft will be phased out
of service at the end of 2008.
The crew will be some of the
first to leave the ship after the


carrier arrives in Mayport.
The Maulers return from
their second deployment with-
in the past 18 months while
serving with Carrier Air Wing
One. VS-32 spent four months
in the Arabian Sea and Arabian
Gulf in support of Operations
Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.
While deployed, they flew 960
sorties, totaling more than
2,200 flight hours with over
950 carrier landings and spent
180 days at sea with only 13
days in port. Port calls included
three stops to Dubai, United
Arab Emirates and one in
Cannes, France.
VS-32 is comprised of six S-3B
Viking aircraft, with 26 officers
and 175 enlisted personnel.

Beaches Energy Service.
The city-owned utility provides
power to Neptune Beach and Ponte
Vedra Beach residents as well.
A long-term power supply study
shows that the electricity needs of the
member utilities are projected to
increase almost 30 percent by 2021,
according to FMPA.
"Florida is among the fastest grow-
ing states in the nation, and as its
communities grow, so does the need
for electricity," FMPA said in a release.
To meet these growing needs and
environmental concerns, FMPA is
developing a balanced mix of power
resources that pairs proven technolo-
gies, like clean-burning natural gas,
with innovative renewable technolo-
gies like solar.
FMPA issued a request on Dec. 5
seeking solar photovoltaic equipment
or a contract .to purchase electricity
generated with solar technology.
The request is structured to attract
the broadest possible range, of solar
manufacturers and project developers.
Bidders are invited to submit propos-


als ranging from the supply of solar
photovoltaic equipment to the instal-
lation of a turn-key solar project, to a
power purchase contract for electricity
generated by solar photovoltaic tech-
nology.
"FMPA members currently receive
power'from two renewable power
sources. This is our first foray into
advanced solar technology," FMPA's
General Manager and CEO Roger
Fontes said.
"At this stage, we're exploring the
full range of alternatives for bringing
solar into our mix of generating
resources."
FMPA's request asks for proposals
that could provide up to 100
megawatts of electrical generation,
installed over a period of five years.
FMPA would begin by installing 10
megawatts in the first year, 2008, with
additional capacity added in future
years.
Member cities of FMPA serve
approximately two million residents.
Project information is available at
www.fmpa.com.


Beach cities keep money accessible

0 FUNDS, from A-1


said Ramsey, regarding thedeci-
sion-to withdraw the money.
The money, which is prima-
rily used for short term expens-
es, is now in money market
accounts and CDs and will
remain there until city officials
decide what to do with it, he
said..
In Jacksonville Beach, offi-
cials withdrew more than $10
million and left approximately
$150,000, according to City
Manager George Forbes.
The money invested in the
fund is also for short term

the sub-prime mortgage crisis.
Reacting to the situation, the
State Board of Administration
(SBA) shut down access to the
fund at 11 a.m. Nov. 29, effec-
tively freezing all assets.
Since then, the SBA has
reopened the fund, with new
limits. The limits follow sug-
gestions made by BlackRock
Inc., an independent invest-
ment advisor, to separate the
assets of investors. into two
groups, according to a report
from BlackRock..
"Fund A" will be a "managed
cash vehicle, offering money
market yields" and "Fund B's"
share will be "illiquid and are
not tradable," according to the
report.


Assets in Pool A are not con-
nected to mortgage-related
securities, and make up 86 per-
cent of an investor's entire
holdings. Those assets are
available for withdrawal, but
investors cannot pull out more
than 15 percent of their hold-
ings if that amount is more
than $2 million at one time
without incurring penalties.
Now, if an investor wishes to
pull out more, a two percent
penalty will be assessed.
Assets in Pool B are connect-
ed to mortgage-related securi-
ties, and make up 14 percent of
holdings. According to a letter
the SBA sent to investors, these
assets will be frozen until they
mature.

Letters to the editor:


Want to recommend

To the editor:
I love live theatre. For me,
there is something special
about watching actors per-
forming right there in front of
me, evoking all the emotions
from laughter to tears, and
from fear to delight. I was con-
cerned when I moved here
from London, England eleven
years ago. Would I be able to
indulge my passion at the
"sleepy" beaches? I now realize
we are truly lucky to have so
many opportunities to see
good quality productions in
and around the beaches area.
The Atlantic Beach
Experimental Theatre and
Players by the Sea are right
here. It isn't too far to travel to
the Limelight in St Augustine
and Theatre Jacksonville in San
Marco. Highlights over the


a well done show

past year have included the
unforgettable Tuna Christmas
at PBS and Pack of Lies at
Theatre Jax.
What a thrill it is to now
praise the Orpheus Theatre
Group. Their first production,
Closer, was excellent and the
current offering, The
Pillowman, maintains the high
standard. While not for every-
one, the play is a disturbing
and intricate story, full of
twists and turns. It is wonder-
ful that we have, locally, the
chance to see such cutting-
edge drama superbly acted.
I congratulate the produc-
tion staff and actors at all our
local theatres.

District believes water withdrawal OK


To the editor:
With a growing population,
Florida is challenged to ensure
an adequate water supply and
to protect the state's natural
resources, such as our wetlands,
lakes and rivers. Water conser-
vation is the cornerstone of sus-
taining Florida's water supply
and will continue to play a vital-
ly important role.
Mandatory water conserva-
tion has been in.effect in the St.
Johns River Water Management
District's 18 counties for more'
than 16 years, through limiting
lawn and landscape irrigation
hours to before 10 a.m. or after
4 p.m. The District strength-
ened the watering rule in March
2006 by limiting outdoor irriga-
tion to no more than two days a
week. The District is also asking
local governments to consider
adopting its model ordinance to
enforce the irrigation rule.
Unfortunately, conservation
alone will not solve all our water
supply challenges, though it
could delay the need for more
expensive and challenging alter-
natives.
An- estimated 28 million peo-
pLe wiill IJie in Florida by 2030f'
up from 17 million in 2005.
Public supply water demand in
this District alone is expected to
nearly double by 2025.
In many areas, the supply of
fresh groundwater from the
Floridan aquifer is reaching its
sustainable limit, or will reach
these limits in the near future
and will not be able to meet all
future needs. The District will
not permit water withdrawals
that will cause unacceptable
impacts to water resources. To
this end, the District has initiat-
ed a rule-making process to cap
the amount of water that can be


withdrawn from the aquifer sys-
tem in portions of central
Florida. The cap will reflect
water demands through 2013.
However, the District has no
authority to control local
growth. Our role is to identify
potential water sources and
investigate if and to what extent
alternative water supply sources
'can be developed and used
without resulting in unaccept-
able impacts.
Central Florida utilities are
considering the development of
supplemental alternative. water
sources including seawater,
brackish groundwater,
reclaimed water, and surface
water from rivers, including the
St. Johns River.
District staff believe, based on
scientific investigation, that
there is a limited amount of
water that can be safely with-
drawn from the St. Johns River
to supplement groundwater to
meet central Florida's needs. ,
While planning is moving
forward, more investigations are
under way, including further
study-on the potential for unac-
ceptable impacts to areas down-
'.stream of the withdrawals, par-
ticularly the Lower St. Johns
River Basin.
The District is committed to
continuing its study on the
potential effects of proposed
withdrawals on the St. Johns
River system, and we will share
new information with you as it
becomes available. Please visit
our Web site, www.sjrwmd.com,
regularly for updates.

My excitement was spi-
raling the first
Christmas that I would
share with my wonderful hus-
band was fast approaching. Bill
had participated in my family's
holidays before and knew what
to expect lots of greenery, can-
dles, ornaments, lights, and of
course, the heart of it all, The
Christmas Tree. Christmas did-
n't start until the tree was at
center stage, colored lights
reflected in the shiny glass
globes, threads of real tin-foil
tinsel hanging from the nee-
dles, the strands put on one by
one.
It was 1958. I was teaching
school, leaving me little time to
think about much else, and
Christmas was not in the fore-
front...until vacation time
arrived. I was aflutter the after-
noon school was dismissed for
the holiday. That evening, Bill
and I would go out and find the
perfect tree for our little apart-
ment. I was waiting when he
came home.
"Going somewhere?"
"Absolutely! We're going to
find our Christmas tree."
No smile crossed his face, no
recognition that -this was the
essential ritual; to start. the
Christmas season. "No we're
not. We can't afford a tree.
Your $4200 doesn't allow for
extra spending, and my busi-
ness isn't bringing in any
money yet. I keep telling you
we have to keep a tight grip on
the finances."
"I know, but this is Christmas.
We HAVE to have a tree. A tree
makes the celebration. We
won't buy ornaments or lights -
I'll make garlands from whatev-
er we have around."
"No tree."
I tried not to let him know
how upset I was. I was sure he'd
change his mind. Maybe he'd
had a disappointing day, or was
going to surprise me by bring-
ing a tree home tomorrow. I'd
have to wait and see what hap-
pened.
But every day it was the same

- no tree, no tree, all the way to
December 24th. I was miser-
able, facing the prospect of
Christmas Day without a tree.
'In the early afternoon, there
was a knock at our door. We
weren't expecting anyone. I
was sure it was a delivery of a
lovely spruce that Bill had
bought to surprise me. It wasn't
- it was his father bringing us a
Christmas tree stand and boxes
of oraments and lights for dec-
orating our non-tree. He knew
we wouldn't be able to buy tree
accessories, so "he -brought us-
extras of his. He was astOunde ,
that we didn't have a tree.
When he learned of Bill's
Grinchy declaration, he
laughed, not believing his son
would be so hardheaded. He
left his donations and went on
his way.
Bill's school friend, Pat,
showed up around cocktail
time with a bottle of good
Scotch to "put under the tree."
Since we had no tree, Bill and
he opened the Scotch instead,
and we all had a Christmas
toast. Pat, like Bill's dad, was
taken:aback by our lack of a tree
and grimaced when Bill told
him we couldn't afford one.
"For Pete's sake, you can go
out and get a tree at any lot
now for next to nothing. Let's
go see what we can find." Bill's
glum face answered him back.
It was getting to be a challenge


To the editor:
The Neptune Beach City
Council deserves our respect
and gratitude for being the
first city in North Florida to
wisely and courageously
adopt a resolution opposing
the St. Johns Water
Management District's
scheme to drain North
Florida's' precious water to
Central and South Florida..
Jeffrey Brook's response in
The Leader, which harshly
criticized the Council, was
unnecessarily mean-spirited,
and not at all helpful in
resolving a critical statewide
water shortage; His charge
that the Council and Vice-
Mayor Pruette were somehow
responsible for the failure of
the Council of 100 to estab-
lish a sound state water poli-
cy back in 2003, is without
basis when the history of this
plan is considered.
After a year of secret meet-
ings, the Council of 10.0, led
by Al Hoffman, the CEO and
founder of WCI, the largest
builder of community homes
in Florida, came forth with


his Task Force's plan to divvy
up Florida's water. Lee
Arnold, another big develop-
er who headed up the Task
Force, presented the new
water plan to Gov. Bush, and
it alarmingly included priva-
tization of public 'water,
transfer of water long dis-
tances by pipeline to support
development, abolition of
regional water districts and
created a "super" water board
in Tallahassee.
When the work of Arnold's
Task Force was made public
in the fall of 2003 by the St.
Petersburg Times, it sent up a
red flag and caused a
firestorm of anger when it.
became clear the developers
planned to hijack the public's
water supply and had taken
aim on Florida's rivers,
including the historic
Suwannee, planning to
pipeline water south to feed
big development.
The public was outraged.
Half of Florida's counties
opposed the plan, as did
Jacksonville and the City of
Neptune Beach, with

Helen Gray Solomon of
Ponte Vedra Beach died
September 25, 2007 in the
Vicar's Landing Health Center.
An exciting life well-lived, the
family said.
Born in 1911 in St. John,
Kansas, she moved in 1922 to
Jacksonville, where her father,
Harry T. Gray,. joined a promi-
nent law firm that still bears
his name, Marks Gray, Inc. A
graduate of Lee High School
and Florida State College for
Women (FSU), she was a mem-
ber of Mortar Board, yearbook
editor, FLASTACOWO and Pi
Beta Phi.
,She was married in 1935 to
Edward Crawford Solomon of
Jacksonville. In 1939, both
earned a master's degree from
Peabody College of Vanderbilt
University.
During World War II, the
couple lived in New York, N.Y.
while he was in the U.S.
Maritime Service. After the war,
she was employed by E.I.
DuPont de Nemours of
Wilmingtori, Del. in its New
York public relations office and
he joined Sarah Lawrence
College in Bronxville, N.Y.,
where they lived. During her
DuPont years, she covered the
Couture Collections in Paris
nine times and led many trade
events in the United States and
South America. She retired
from DuPont after 28 years.


In 1983, she and her hus-
band moved to Sawgrass from
New York and Sag Harbor. Four
years after his death in 1985,
she moved to Vicar's Landing
retirement community in
Ponte Vedra, where she
enjoyed the. remainder of her
life.
She is survived by her son,
Gray Crawford Solomon; two
grandchildren, Gaines Gray
Solomon and Charlotte
Chilton Solomon of Ponte
Vedra; and many cousins in
Ponte Vedra and California.
She was a member of the
Ponte Vedra Club and Sawgrass
Country Club. She was part of
Christ Episcopal Church,
where she sang in its choir for
more than 15 years. Her ashes
will be interned in Christ
Episcopal Church Memorial
Garden next to her husband.
There will be a memorial
service at 2 p.m. December 15
at the church. Contributions in
her memory would be appreci-
ated to either Christ Episcopal
Church or the Vicar's Landing
Employee Scholarship Fund,
each having been an essential
part of her well-being in later
life.
The family would be grateful

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Plans to modify two exist-
ing bus routes at the Beaches
will be implemented Jan. 7,
JTA officials said Wednesday
at a public meeting in
Jacksonville Beach.
Transportation officials
were on hand to address con-
cerns or answer questions
about the changes which
include eliminating the cur-
rent R-4 route from Atlantic
Beach to South Jacksonville
Beach.
The existing BH-1 route
from Regency to Atlantic
Beach and South Jacksonville
Beach will be adjusted to trav-
el 2nd Street in Jacksonville
B6eachiiiit' Pablo Towers from
do6ntow;n Jacksonville.
Wendy Morrow of the JTA
said the change will impact
those residents at Pablo
Towers who utilize public
transportation when the plans
go into place next month,
"They were all very pleased
with the changes," Morrow
said of those who participated
in the sparsely attended meet-
ing. "They will just ride a dif-
ferent route."
Mike. Miller, director of
external affairs for JTA, said
replacing the R-4 with the BH-1
will not create a loss in avail-
able transportation but is
expected to increase the fre-
quency and availability of
buses along the new
Jacksonville Beach route.
An additional 6 p.m. week-
end stop will also be added to
the BH-50 which is the new
Beaches Commuter Express
from Sawgrass to the Gateway
Mall for employees getting off
of later shifts.
The route is part of a new
pilot project to extend bus
service into Ponte Vedra
Beach developed to .assist
employees residing in Duval
County to reach employment
destinations at the beaches
and in northern St. Johns
County.
Several hotel, restaurant
and hospital employees who
rely on public transportation
to get to work filled out sur-
veys in support of the new
service.

Misdemeanor

arrest follows

report of shots


FROM STAFF
Less than an hour after a
disturbance with multiple
shots fired in Jacksonville
Beach, an Oregon man was
arrested and charged with
DUI for driving the wrong
way on St. Johns Bluff Road.
The incident started near 1
a.m. in the parking lot of a
Jacksonville Beach restaurant
where police responded to a
report of a suspicious person
with a gun.
A witness told police that
the suspect fired several shots
into the air before driving
away in a white BMW in the
2300 block of Beach
Boulevard.
According to a police
report, the witness was walk-
ing through the parking lot
when he observed a group of
about 10 unknown males
arguing.
A shirtless man was seen
trying to instigate a fight with
another member of the group
when he was struck in the
face and knocked to the
ground, the report said.
Police said the man was not
moving and appeared to be
unconscious. The majority of
the group dispersed, driving
away in separate vehicles.
Concerned for the victim's


well-being, the witness told
police that he approached one
man and asked if they should
call an ambulance.
The man pulled a gun from
his waistband and pointed it
at the witness, asking him if
he had a problem. The wit-
ness put his hands in the air
and walked back toward his
vehicle when he observed the
suspect fire several shots into
the air from a .40 caliber
handgun, the report said.
Police said the suspect
picked his friend up off the
ground and dragged him to
his BMW where he put him in
the front seat.
.Several items of clothing,
two cell phones and three .40
caliber shell casings were
found at the scene. Police
called 'one of the cell phones
and determined that it
belonged to the suspect's
mother in Orgeon who also
confirmed that her son drove
a white BMW.
A .vehicle matching the
description was stopped for
driving on the wrong side of
the road. The driver was
arrested for misdemeanor DUI
and a loaded .40 caliber hand-
gun and a 9 mm were found
in the vehicle, police said.

Peyton reads to pre-schoolers


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton visited Bethlehem
Lutheran Pre-School in
Jacksonville Beach Tuesday as
part of an ongoing children's
literary program.
"We've had phenomenal
success with our early literary
initiative," Peyton said before
reading to the pre-schoolers. "I
really believe delivering a
more-prepared student to our
school system helps insure suc-
cess for that child.
"Literacy is the best predic-
tor for how far a student goes
in school, what kind of career
they'll get and even whether
they'll commit a crime. If we
can influence them early, not
inl is it less expensive, the
higher probability is for suc-
cess and it's a lot more fun,
too."
The book the Jacksonville
mayor read to the youngsters
was "If You Give a Mouse a
Cookie," by Laura Joffe
Numeroff.
"It's a fun one. I've gotten
this one down," he noted.
Peyton said he enjoys his


reading appearances.
"Of all the things I do, with
the brushfires we're trying to
put out each day, I get more
personal satisfaction out of
this because I really think, get-
ting to these kids early and
hopefully communicating an
important message, really
makes a difference."
The mayor added that his
program is far beyond just
reading every week.
"We're trying to convert our
entire child-care system from
custodial care to learning care.
We're devoting a lot of
resources to that. We actually
have research and measure-
ment components in place.
The University of North
Florida tracks whether these
kids are making progress in
those key learning categories:
literate, recognition and
things of this nature. Our
measurement tells us we're
doing the right things on a
pretty grand scale."
Peyton said he's "just
thrilled with the recognition
we've gotten nationally as
being one of the most progres-
sive communities in the coun-
try with early literacy."

STAFF WRITER ---


A Bethlehem Visit, Ponte Vedra Presbyterian
Church's recreation of the town of Bethlehem at
the time of Jesus' birth, will be held from 6:30 to

chants, Roman soldiers, and visitors in the 8000
square foot replica of Bethlehem.
Those who plan to attend A Bethlehem Visit are
encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes.
Golf carts will be available to assist those with dif-
ficulty walking.
Members of the church will serve Christmas
cookies and hot chocolate to guests at the event.

Beyond the Call:



Veteran nun traces the history



of Sisters of St. Joseph


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
The history of a religious order that for the past 140' years
has had a significant impact on Northeast Florida is chroni-
cled in the new book, "Beyond the Call, The Legacy of the
Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, Florida."
"Beyond the Call" was written by Sister Thomas Joseph
McGoldrick, SSJ. She has been a member of the Roman
Catholic religious community of the Sisters of St. Joseph for 63
years.
The history of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Florida began in
1866 when eight members of the order came to St. Augustine
from their home in France. Their mission was to educate the
recently emancipated slaves.
"They were the only religious congregation that came to
educate former slaves," said Sister McGoldrick.
In addition to their work within the black community at the
school that became St. Benedict the Moor School, the Sisters
of St. Joseph also founded and served at parochial schools
throughout the area.
These include St. Joseph's in Mandarin; Immaculate
Conception School, St. Pius School, Assumption School, and
Holy Rosary School in Jacksonville; St.. Paul's School in
Riverside; and St. Joseph's Academy, and the Cathedral Parish
School in St. Augustine.
The order also founded and served at St. Mary's Home in
Jacksonville, St. Joseph's College of Florida, and Mercy
Hospital in Miami, said Sister McGoldrick.
Through this history of the Sisters of St. Joseph of St.
Augustine, readers will also learn about "the history of the
Catholic Church in Florida, the advent of parochial schools,
women in the church, and issues of segregation."


Included in the book are
translations of "one hundred
letters written by the pioneer
Sisters to friends in France .....
of the conditions in the late
1800's in Florida and
... Georgia."
4 McGoldrick serves as
archivist for the Sisters of St.
Joseph in St. Augustine and
for the Diocese of St.
Augustine. She is curator of
the Father Miguel O'Reilly
House Museum in St.
Augustine. She was General
Superior of the order from
Sister Thomas Joseph 1072 to 1978.
Thomas Joseph She also served as principal
McGoldrick of Bishop Kenny High School
from 1962 to 1970 and from 1989-92.
McGoldrick said that she hopes the book will provide people
with an understanding of the contributions of religious
women in the church.
The book, which has a foreword by Bishop Victor Galeone of
the Diocese of St. Augustine, will be ready for shipping after
the first of the year.
It can be ordered by mail to Sisters of St. Joseph, P.O. Box
3506, St. Augustine, FL 32085.
It will also be available at The Bell Tower Shop and the
Shrine Shop in St. Augustine and at the Father Miguel O'Reilly
House Museum.
Hardback copies are $23.50 plus $2.50 shipping and paper-
back copies are $15.50 plus $2.50 shipping.

Battle-tested

Nease ready

for season's

toughest

challenge

A hat a long, successful
trip it's been for the
Nease High football
team this season. Countless
hours of practice, buckets of
sweat, 10 regular-season
games, four rounds of playoffs
and now, finally, another shot
at a state championship
tomorrow in Orlando.
It all began with a three-
week 1,000-mile odyssey that
saw the Panthers travel to
Citra North Marion, Martin
County (Stuart) and:Madison
County to open the season.
"We're the road warriors,"
coach Craig Howard said
then. "We wanted to test our-
selves against the best compe-
tition we could find, and that
meant traveling and playing
on the road."
Nease emerged with two
blowout wins and a frustrat-
ing one-point loss to a team,
Madison County, that would .
go on to win the Class 2A
state championship last
Saturday.
In fact, much of the
Panthers' schedule featured
tough challenges. Week fie
saw a trip to Daytona Beach
to take on perennial power
Mainland (a 30-14 Nease win).
The eighth game was a
Monday-nighter against Lake
City Columbia and a 28-0 vic-
tory.
Four days later, the Panthers
pounded Bartram Trail, 44-7.
But perhaps my favorite
moment from the regular sea-
son was the St. Augustine
game Oct. 12. With quarter-
back Ted Stachitas nursing a
knee he banged up against
Ridgeview a week earlier,
Howard trotted out his "super
power" offense a running-
style scheme that employs
Hunter Bates as QB and a
seven-man, shoulder-to-shoul-
der front; with two additional
blockers a step off the line, to
chew up yardage, the clock
and an opponent.
So un-Nease like, so anti-
thetical to a typical Howard
high-flying, fast-paced offense.
And yet it worked as Nease
plodded to a 17-15 victory.
In facing Miami's Booker T.
Washington Saturday for the
Class 4A state title, the
Panthers are eyeing a, signifi-
cantly greater challenge. The
Tornadoes are -13-0 and
nationally-ranked in a variety
of polls. Washingtolfiiatures
fast, talented athletnoh both
sides of .the ball. :-
But Nease's secretjeapon is
that the team is battl-tested.
Those early wars --:ad late
ones in the playoffs: have
helped players gain confidence
for big games. They t:ust their
teammates to make plays, rely
upon each other in crucial sit-
uations and always believe
they will win. That's a tough
combination for opponents,
no matter how individually
talented, to overcome.
In the last two rounds of the
playoffs, Nease has defeated
previously unbeaten Daytona
Seabreeze (23-13) and Pace, 49-
48 in last week's thrilling four
overtime epic.
In riding to their third
straight title game, Panthers
coaches know a thing or two
about game-planning, as well.
If the Tornadoes have weak-
nesses, Howard, defensive
coordinator Danny Cowgill
and the rest of the staff will
have spotted them.
Succinctly, Nease High foot-
ball players, most of whom
came up through the Pop
Warner program, have worked
their entire lives for opportuni-
ties like the one facing them
Saturday in Orlando's Citrus
Bowl. Expect them to shine.

Staying at the top of the dis-
trict standings is important to
Fletcher High's boys basketball
team, so a couple of recent
victories over district rivals is
sure to help out.
Within a week, the Senators
defeated Mandarin and, most
recently, Gainesville Buchholz
Tuesday night to help keep
Fletcher amongst the top
teams in the district.
A 28-point win over West
Nassau sandwiched between
the key district games was just
extra confidence for the
Senators, whose only loss in
the past week was to district
leader Orange Park. The
Raiders in turn defeated
Mandarin Tuesday to seize
control of the district race.
"We're just trying to keep it
positive and stay on top of the
district," Senators head coach
Corey Jackson said following
the win against Buchholz.
The Senators played well
against the Bobcats, despite
being without key player
Robert Thorpe, who missed
the game with,an illness.
"He's one of our leading
Scorers and rebounders,"
Jackson said of Thorpe, "so we
have to find someone else to
step up in his place."
Many of Fletcher's players
took a stand Tuesday night as
the Senators topped Buchholz.
a thrilling 59-57 affair, one
that cam down to the final 20
seconds of the game.
Darius Campbell hit a layup
after Fletcher forced a
turnover with just over 12.5
seconds to give Fletcher a 59-
56 lead.
The Bobcats worked up the
court quickly, dishing a pass
to Jamie Calabrese, who was
open for a three-point
attempt. Calabrese was fouled
by Lamar Scruggs, allowing
the sophomore a chance to tie
the game with three free
throws.
Calabrese made the first and
missed the final two, ending
any chance Buchholz would
ha\le.
Fletcher held a slight 2o-24
lead at halftime but came out
strong in the third period,
putting 22 points on the
board, compared to the 11 by
the Bobcats, to take a 48-36
point advantage heading into
the final period.
Led by Josh Boyd's 11-point
effort in the final period,
Buchholz was able to close the
gap at the end of the game.

cuting well and that's one

Mathis takes pride in giving back to community


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST


T aguar football fans, like pro
."*fans throughout the coun-
" try, probably think of
"cksonville native Rashean
Mathis as one of the best pass-
stealers in the game, but
rd R aoICtl a there's another side to the
four-year veteran: He's a com-
munity builder.
It's almost a tradition with
.. Wayne Weaver's team that
players become active amongst
youngsters from elementary
grades and up, but Rashean
can be lauded for participation
in just about every program
the city has for kids.
The cornerback's latest
endeavor is to help refurbish a
football field in Orange Park.
Always among the first to vol-
unteer in "giving back" to the
community. Mathis is joining
The Home Depot in a program
to make over the Dye Clay
Family YMCA.
The project is part of Home
Depot's National
Neighborhood MVP program
that honors NFL players who
have demonstrated personal
efforts to help their communi-
ties to give back something
in exchange for what the com-
munity has done for the team
and its players.
Mathis grew up in
Jacksonville, attended
Englewood High and learned
: his football on the sandlots.
S.The opportunity it gave him,
putting young Rashean on the
road to fame and economic
security he tells you, makes
him want to share a similar
-,- experience with youngsters.
The playing fields are the
best places for kids to learn
how to live with others and
contribute understanding they

activities aimed at "giving back" to the community that has helped him achieve NFL success. The new field at the Clay




Magnetic insoles not likely to



help ease lanfasciitis pain


YMCA will serve more than
500 kids who participate there
and the project will also fur-
nish an improvement for the
summer camp area.
Mathis has emerged as one
of the outstanding cornerbacks
in the NFL in his four years,
and has led the Jaguars in
interceptions for three straight
seasons. Drafted in the second
round in 2003, he has consis-
tently been a leader on and off
the field.
Participating in the field-
restoration project at the
Orange Park YMCA doesn't
surprise anyone who has seen
him on the field or in the
locker room like his team-
mates have. Rashean demon-
strated leadership last year and.
his play between the lines
earned him a Pro Bowl appear-
ance, the first of his career.
When Mathis was elected to
that prestigious honor, he
became the first Jaguar corner-
back to receive such an acco-
lade. Mathis finished the sea-
son tied for third in the NFL


with a team-record eight inter-
ceptions.
When he broke into the
league, Mathis became only
the fifth Jaguar to make 16
starts as a rookie six games
at safety and 10 at corner. He
made an even bigger splash
that season when he became
one of only five Jacksonville
defenders to return an inter-
ception for a touchdown, scor-
ing in overtime to beat the
Pittsburgh Steelers On Oct. 16,
2005.
Aside from his achievements
on the field, Rashean serves on
the Jacksonville Parks,
Recreation, Entertainment and
Conservation Advisory Board
and somehow finds time to
* speak toelementary and high
school students on a regular
basis.
Truly a: Jaguar with commu-
nity spirit..
"I've just wanted to return
some of the good things the
team and.ghis community
have done for me," Mathis
said.. .;.

be% question: Dr. Smith, my
" heel has been hurting,
and when I step out of
bed he morning, the first
few steps almost kill me.
Would magnetic insoles help
with my pain?

Answer: The answer to your
question is no,
magnetic insoles
would not likely
provide you any
additional bene-
fit over a regular
rubber or foam
insert.
It is well
known that an
insert can pro- '
vide a measure
of relief in the
treatment of
foot pain. GRE(
Magnetic inserts
have recently SMITI
gained populari- CONTR
ty in the treat-
ment of this
and many other orthopedic
conditions.
However, a recent study
published in the Journal of
American Medicine looked at
magnetic insoles in compari-
son to simple non-magnetic
insoles, and their results
showed that their was no
additional benefit from the
magnetized insert.
Most likely you are suffering
from an inflammatory condi-
tion called plantar fasciitis.
This is a very common prob-
lem.
It occurs because the thick
band of tissue (the plantar fas-
cia) that runs along the arch
of your foot has become
inflamed. The heel becomes
very tender at the point where
this tissue starts off the heel
bone.
Morning heel pain is very
common, for the cord tends
to tighten up during the night
while you sleep. When you
step out of bed in the morn-
ing, it is suddenly stretched
out again, causing your pain.
Once you have this, there
are steps you can take to get
rid of it. One of the first steps
in treatment of your problem
is to try and identify the
cause.
A flattening of your arch or
overuse can cause your plan-

Another cause would be

by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
They don't call him "Big
Sam" for nothing.
At 6 feet 4 and 200-plus
pounds, New Orleans native
Sammie Williams could easily
be mistaken for a pro football
player."
Always too big to play
sports as a youth, Williams
tried out for the marching
band in middle school.
"I didn't know what I want-
ed to play, or even care. I just
had to find something to do,"
Williams recalled in a recent
online interview for
"OffBEAT" magazine.
"I told [band director Darrell
Dickerson] I'd play the instru-
ment nobody wants to play,
so he handed me a trom-
bone."
More than a decade later,
Williams is still as big as an
NFL player, but with a big
sound to boot. The former
trombonist for the Dirty
Dozen Brass Band performs
today at Mojo Kitchen and
Blues Bar in Jacksonville
Beach.
Tickets are $15 at the door.
Showtime is 10:30 p.m. Willie
Mae is the opening act.
Williams played at Mojo's
last May before embarking on
a summer-long tour in Europe
with Elvis Costello and New


Orleans legend Allen
Toussaint.
As the only brass player in
his five-piece Funky Nation
band, Williams told
"OffBEAT" that his shows
often veer from their solid
funk base to traditional jazz or
even psychedelic rock.
"Overall, everything is
funky, but lately we've been
throwing in some Jimi
Hendrix and maybe some
OutKast," Williams told the
Louisiana-based online maga-
zine.
"We never know what is
going to happen on a given
night."
Williams grew up in New
Orleans' 12th Ward district,
one of many ravaged by
Hurricane Katrina in August
2005.
He recently moved back to
the Crescent City from San
Antonio, Texas, after being
displaced for more than two
years.
He co-owns a nightclub in
New Orleans known as the
Funky Butt.
Williams was reportedly
only 19 when he was invited
to join and tour with the
Dirty Dozen Brass Band, a
group he idolized while
attending John F Kennedy
High School and later the New
Orleans Center for the
Creative Arts.

Middle School student performs Saturday evening.


Williams was playing the
trombone at a Jazzland theme
park when he got the call
from Dirty Dozen trumpeter
Efrem Townes, according to
"Off BEAT."
The call went something
like this: "Hey, Sam, this is
E.T. from the Dozen. We need
a trombone player. You ready
to go out on the road?"


The Zen of doing it yourself


simple repair to your
garbage disposal. A
fresh faux paint treat-
ment to a bedroom wall. A
once-tired table that's been
sanded, stained, and brought
back to life. None of these
may seem like life-changing
achievements at the time.
But a home improvement
project actually,has the
power to change how you
feel about yourself forever.
A task that once seemed
beyond your talents can
become a confidence build-
ing life lesson. Each new
project has the power to
change who we are. Sound a
bit Zen? It is and it's very
powerful.
One of the main principles
of Zen teaching is to live in
the moment, to focus on one
task at a time without think-
ing about all the others that
require your attention. For
most women today who find
themselves multi-tasking
from the moment they wake,
the act of being able to total-
ly focus on one project is, in
itself, a healing and gratify-
ing experience.
Once you get an idea for a
home improvement project,


Bc'jte NCe-- .
HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'

the spark of creativity is
ignited. The idea for the proj-
ect may linger in your head
for a long time until you are
ready to act on it. For too
many people, this is extreme-
ly difficult. Like the desire to
start exercising after months
of inactivity, 'the hardest part
is getting yourself to the
gym. But once there, you
don't understand what took
you so long.
The same holds true for
home improvement projects.
Once you decide to act, you
have conquered the hardest


task.
Now you can focus on
how to best accomplish
your task whether it is
building a brick barbeque,
fixing a window screen,
refurbishing your kitchen
cabinets or making an
upholstered headboard. If
you are not used to doing
such tasks, this first step
may mean taking a class at
a home improvement store,
researching online or get-
ting help from a friend.
This kind of self-learning
expands your mind and
your horizons. It inspires
you to keep going with
your task (and may indeed
inspire those around you.)
Home improvement taps
your inner creative spirit. The
ideas flow as you look at the
project from different angles.
You must learn how to plan
and prepare and in the
process, you must learn to be
patient in order to achieve
your goals..This is the very
foundation of all Zen teach-
ings.

REVIEWER


Coen Bros. film

makes promise

it cannot keep

don't know your opinion
on gun control, but where
Hollywood's lack of imagi-
nation is concerned, I'd say
there's a serious need for it.
Last week I reviewed "Before
the Devil Knows You're Dead,"
which seemed to ape "The
Departed's" sense of total
nihilism for its characters.
Now there's "No Country
for Old Men," which is excel-
lent until its last half-hour,
where it stops dead more
quickly than its gunned-down
characters.
Maybe it's the latest trend in
Hollywood scripting call it
deus ex militia. Kill off every-
one at movie's end you're
spared some major writer's
block while being hailed for
brilliant social commentary.
The sad part is that much of
"Men" is engrossing, if often
gross, filmmaking from veter-
an director/siblings Joel and
Ethan Coen. The story con-
cerns Llewelyn (Josh Brolin),
who stumbles upon $2 million
from a failed drug heist and
plans to keep it for himself by
any means necessary.
Quite eager to'thwart
Llewelyn's scheme is Chigurh
(Javier Bardem). His name is
pronounced "sugar" with the
second syllable accented, but
by any name he's just psycho-
pathic evil. He missed latching
on to the money just before
Llewelyn did, and he means to
assertively rectify that mistake.
, The movie's acting is
superlative. Supporting players
Tommy Lee Jones and Woody
Harrelson add gravity and wit
to the proceedings, Bardem is
appropriately chilling, and
Brolin is the movie actor his
more famous father, James,
never was.
I think the movie's defect is
that it makes a promise it ulti-
mately can't keep. Llewelyn is
the ultimate anti-hero.
And despite his getting the
money through nefarious
means, if it's a choice
between him or Chigurh win-
ning out, you're definitely
rooting for the former. (Jones'

Online galleries are encroaching


W ill art galleries be
hurt by the elec-
tronic age?
This question was brought
to mind this past week when
I was approached three times
by online galleries to place
my artwork with them.
One read as follows: "Over
8,000-artists and 80.000 .-
works available on-line:-The
December edition of
SellArtrSmart is now avail-
able."
These online galleries are
bound to cut into the busi-
ness of private galleries as
people shop for art to deco-
rate their offices and homes.
It is something to think
about as we head into the
New Year.
Art centers and art muse-
ums will always be with us as
they offer more than displays
of artworks. Classes, open-
ings, travel and lectures are
available in abundance in

ous account of Crumpet the

the Christmas spirit. Dinner

The Cummer Museum of
Art & Gardens offers us his-
tory, classes and lectures as
well as art. The current
exhibit, "Art from the Ashes:
In Stabiano, Exploring the
Ancient Villas of the Roman
Elite," will be on display
through Feb. 3.

American Art from the West
Foundation Collection" runs
through Jan. 2. The collec-
tion features 45 paintings by
preeminent American artists
from the 19th century
through the mid-20th centu-
ry, to include landscape
painters Albert Bierstadt,
Edward Moran, Jasper
Cropsey and Sanford R.

'Zombie Town' puts undead in their place


by SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR
ombie flicks, it seems,
are making a comeback.
The exact origin of
these mindless, flesh-chomp-
ing miscreants from God
only knows where,.lately
have taken Hollywood by.
storm.
Even famed moviemaker
Quentin Tarantino has got-
ten into the act. His recent
"Planet Terror" one part of
a seamlessly woven "double
feature" spoof depicts these
groaning, moaning undead
beings being blown away by
fearless humans using every
means imaginable.
Now "Zombie Town," a
flick by first-time director,
writer and producer Dennis
Lemoine, has surfaced for
those enamored by the silver
sc reen. A release by MTI
Home Video, it'll definitely


satisfy those craving to see
the undead put in their
place!
Imagine you've been
brought up in Colchester,
Vt., a tiny town not too far
from the relative metropolis
of Rutland.
All your life, you've been
fascinated by horror flicks,
and after working in various
capacities in the film indus-
try for half a decade, you
finally get a chance to show
your stuff. After leaving a
temporary abode in
Brooklyn, Lemoine, freshly-
minted script in hand,
returned to his home state to
shoot almost literally the
first flick in which he actual-
ly steered the helm. His last
effort, "Illegal Aliens," was
Anna Nicole Smith's final
screen appearance.
Like most zombie flicks,
there isn't much of a plot.
Adam Hose and Brynn Lucas


(both stars of "T'he Vault"
and "Last Call Before
Sunset") team with Lemoine
and Philip Burke ("Law and
Order") as the principal
actors.
Serving in numerous writ-
ing directing, producing and
"wearing skimpy clothes"
capacities are Zorinah Juan,
and Mary Beth French. David
Giancola works in a similar
but not identical capacity
:and,helps executive produce.
Tlie flick l Igilns with the
stars caught in the boon-
docks, isolated by events
beyond their control. How
the grubby; slimy creatures
who infect people and turn
them into monsters come to
be isn't really clear. Despite
this, it's humans against
nasty creepy-crawlies!
One good point about this
flick is "the attack of the
grandmothers." It's so badly
done, it's almost hilarious.


Whether one appreciates it
or not, it definitely shows
Lemoine has an imagination.
A glaring weakness,
though, is his firearms
knowledge. In a genre in
which original weapons and
super expensive but deadly
toys make routine screen
appearances, this flick simply
passes them by.
Rating special mention is
makeup artist Mike Turner
from Master Paint and FXof
Burlington, Vt. Though obvi-
ously the flick is short on
budget, Turner gets nothing
but praise for the job he's
done. A bright future lies
ahead!'
For less than $25,
"Zombine Town" is well
worth the price. Preview the
trailer and other information
at www.zapotosfilms.com. An
academy award winner it's
not but a decent zombie
flick it is!

COLUMBIA PICTURES
Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood) and Jude (Jim Sturgess) are star-
crossed lovers swept up into the emerging anti-war and coun-
terculture movements of the 1960s in the musical "Across the
Universe." The film is rated PG-13.


Coen: Final scene a cop-out


Cont. from B-1
character, a seen-it-all sheriff,
seems to feel the same way.)
Then, in the last half-hour,
the movie all but says: Hey,
this isn't a dark-comedy
thriller but a treatise on life's
hopelessness. This is sorely
underlined in the movie's
final scene, which harkens
back to the Coens' "dreams
explain everything" from their
1987 comedy "Raising
Arizona." Only here, it's pre-
sented without an ounce of
irony, leaving us to stagger
from the theater muttering,
"Wha-?"
What a cop-out. It would be


like Gene Autry tossing down
his guns just before he caught
the bad guy, and then pontifi-
cating on the pointlessness of
existence. Or The Three
Stooges getting a sudden
attack of conscience about
slapping each other, and then
sensitively dressing each oth-
ers' wounds.
The message of movies such,
as "No Country for Old Men"
is, life's a witch and then you
die. If that's the case, why
waste our money on nihilistic
movies before we go?
"No Country for Old Men"
is rated R for graphic scenes of
violence and murder.

Champagne
Patrick O'Byrne is the mid-
Atlantic regional manager
for the French champagne
producer Henriot and under-
stands the role champagne
plays for special occasions. He
calls it "hatches, matches and
dispatches," or births, mar-
riages and funerals.
We haven't seen champagne
served at funerals is it a
Tasmanian thing?
It could be Mr. O'Byrne
was raised in Tasmania. But he
is really the son of an Irish TC
wine merchant, now works out and
of an Atlanta office and sells
French champagne. Talk about
geographical diversity. page
More champagne is con- pagne
sumed this time of the year explain
thanany other, so for produc- ments
ers it is a make-or-break time. If tion fo
you are like most wine enthusi- balance
asts, you will be shopping for Whe
some bubbles to celebrate the pagnec
upcoming holidays. Hopefully, ypur hc
today's column will help. entirely
Henriot is known for the rel- good w

chardonnay in its blends and uprising

champagne in the

ber the 16 million bubbles in
every bottle speeds alcohol into
the blood stream. Drink
responsibly.
Next week we'll offer recom-
mendations for sparkling wine.
Here are this year's champagne
suggestions:
Henriot Blanc Souverain
Pur Chardonnay NV ($48). A
100-percent chardonnay blend
that offers a yeasty and bread
nose. Somewhat mature fruit
flavors with elements of toast,
and an excellent length.
Henriot Rose Brut NV
($54). 42 percent chardonnay
and 38 percent pinot noir and
very light in color. Amazing
cherry and strawberry fruit
expression in the nose and
mouth, with some cream and
toast elements. A very nice
drinkable package that should
stand up to food well.
Henriot Brut Vintage 1998
($84). With a blend of 49 per-
cent chardonnay and 51 per-
cent pinot noir, this cham-
pagne exhibits an impressive
fruit and fresh-bread nose.
Broad and rich in the mouth
with a distinctive softness.
Although pleasant now this


wine will develop over the next
6-10 years.,
Henriot Cuvee Des
Enchanteleurs 1995 ($135).
Made mainly from chardonnay
and only produced in excep-
tional years. Exceptionally rich,
ripe fruit with beautiful ele-
ments of toast and citrus. Aged
on the lees for 10 years, and
made from all grand crus
grapes. This is a spectacular
champagne.
Mills Wine and Spirits cur-
rently is offering Henriot for
about 25 percent off these retail
prices.
Nicolas Feuillatte Premier
Cru Brut Rose ($45). A very
nice blend of 60 percent pinot
noir; 30 percent pinot meunier,
and 10 percent chardonnay.
Beautiful salmon color, and a
toasty strawberry nose, it is one
of our favorite roses for the
price. Yeasty, bready creamy
strawberry and raspberry fla-
vors. A succulent, sexy cham-
pagne at a great price.
Nicolas Feuillatte "Sweet
Dream" Brut ($30). This brut
remains one of the best values
on the champagne market.
Lots of finesse and apple fla-

vors with citrus aromas and
good balance.
Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow
Label ($50). A reliable cham-
pagne year to year, this signa-
ture wine has a rich, full body
style (50 percent pinot noir)
with a creamy texture and a
nutty finish.
Taittinger Comtes de
Champagne Rose 2000
($200). We cannot afford
champagne at this price, but
we have still been able to enjoy
this wine several times at tast-
ings and with friends. It is truly
one of the most luxurious of all
champagnes. The 1995 we tast-
ed even showed how well it
can age. Expect to find raspber-
ry and plum notes, intensity of
fruit and a silky mouth feel.
Pierre Peters Brut ($50).
Made entirely of chardonnay
grapes, this is a beauty for the


price. Lots of brioche notes
with apple and pear flavors.
Montaudon Brut ($35).
Always a good buy,
Montaudon is made mostly
from chardonnay grapes. It has
a simple but refreshing appeal
with citrus notes.
Wine of the Week
Joseph Phelps Insignia 2004
($200). One of the best produc-
ers of cabernet sauvignon,
Phelps has created a California
icon with Insignia. Blended
with 14 percent merlot 12 per-
cent petite verdot and 2 per-
cent malbec, it has guts to
drink with tonight's steak or
rent a space in your cellar for at
least a decade. It would be an
impressive gift. Forward black-
berry and blueberry notes,
round tannins and great com-
plexity.

AROUND THE HOME


rThe past two years I've.
written abolP ifts to
S buy for your home each
Christmas. These can be gifts
that you give to the family or
to a special person. Instead of
making recommendationsthis
year, I thought I would write
about some of the things I
used in my own home and
enjoyed this year. It might
give you ideas for someone on
your gift list.
1. Dyson slim vacuum. I
bought this vacuum last year
after breaking my wrist and
having neck surgery and need-
ed an easy-to-use vacuum that
worked well. I've written pre-
viously how much I love tis
product. It has unbelievable
suction and picks up an
incredible amount of dirt. It's
expensive, but worth every
penny and that's why it's at
the top of my list.
2. Towel warmer. This was
a recommendation on last
year's list and my towel
warmer runs a close second to
my Dyson in how much I love
it. A warm towel is such a
luxury. For about $50 at Bed
Bath andBeyond, t's a-.
sonably-priced treat.thaf can.
also be used to dry delicate
laundry Items. I plan tO '
upgrade mine this year to an
even better one.
3. Wide-screen computer
monitor. Stop squinting!
This year I got rid of my glass-
es with Lasik surgery and I'm
so glad I did. After .hat I -
upgraded to a 22-inch wide
computer monitor. What a
difference it makes to be able
to sit back in my chair and


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST


read the screen instead of
squinting at the tiny square
across the desk that I had pre-
viously. These are a boon for
older eyes.
4. Reynolds Handi-Vac
vacuum system. We often
buy groceries in quantity and
this summer were the recipi-
ents of my step-father's fish-
ing largesse when he caught a
150-pound Halibut off the
coast of Alaska. It created a
need for 4 food vacuum sys-
tem but I didn't want to
Invest in a special (and expen-
sive) system that required spe-
cial bags. Finally, Reynolds
came up with the Handi-Vac
system that consists of a
space-saving, hand-held vacu-
um appliance that's applied to
special zip style bags that can
, be bought at the grocery store.
It's.riexpensive, easy to store,
and the vacuum and replace-
ment bags are as near as your
grocery store. I simply love


this $9.99 gadget.
5. Santoku-style knives.
These are my new favorite
kitchen tools. Rachel Ray has
long bragged about them
because foods like potatoes
don't stick to the blade as you
chop, making your chopping
more efficient. I can go
through a zucchini like a
Benihana chef, so I like a good
knife. I bought a pair of two
Calphalon knives at Dillard's
recently for only $29.99 and
they can still be had at that
price at stores online as well.
Don't give knives as a gift,
though; it's bad luck. Buy
them just because.
6. Gardener's Toolbelt. My
husband bought me a garden-
er's toolbelt from
Redenvelope.com and I use it
in the house. It's sturdy, well-
made and waterproof and
helps me keep my cleaning
tools with me wherever I go.
Order at redenvelope.com for
about $40.
7. Kruz hard floor cordless
vacuum. This sweeper has
fantastic power for a cordless
vacuum. The base recharges
the vacuum and the handy
switch is conveniently located
at the top of the handle. It
practically floats over hard
floors, which are harder to
vacuum than carpeted ones.
It's a little pricey ($100), but if
you have hard floors, and in
particular, wood floors, this
cordless sweeper is a cinch to
use, has impressive power and
does a terrific job of picking
up particles on hard floors.
Buy at Amazon.com, Target or
Best Buy.

DECORATING I have a
great way to make your house
look very festive next year,
and it's not too costly. Buy
foil wrapping paper and foil
bows now while. they're on
sale half-price after
Christmas. Next year, wrap up
all the pictures you have on
your walls with. wrapping
paper and a bow and re-hang
them. They'll look like pres-
ents. Instead of taking down
the pictures and putting up
store-bought decorations, you
might as -well use what's


already there. I have gotten a
lot of compliments on how
festive our home looks.
Virginia C.
NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION
- If you'want to save money
in the upcoming year, cut
down or stop eating at restau-
rants. Make it a special occa-
sion to go out to eat rather
than a common event. Eat
out once a month and use
coupons to cut costs even fur-
ther. This will also be good for
your waistline, giving you
and your family an added
health bonus. Ingrid A.

You Don't Say


The seven-day week
became part of the Roman
calendar in 321 A.D.
It was not until the year
440 that Christmas was cele-
brated on December 25th.
According to the Mayan
"long count" linear calendar,
the end of the world would
occur on June 5th, 2012.
By the year 46 B.C., the
Roman calendar had fallen
90 days behind the seasons.
Julius Caesar decreed that 46
B.C. would be 445 days long
to make up the excess, and
