WEEKEND


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The first marathon to be
up and running at the
Beaches is expected to draw
7,000 participants to the
streets this Sunday, prompt-
ing residents, police and
business owners to stay on
their toes.
Police in all three Beaches
cities will.send out a series of
prerecorded messages to
notify those positioned along
the route of road closures
and other potential traffic
concerns associated with the
26.2 With Donna: The
National Marathon to Fight
Breast Cancer.
Approximately 7,000 peo-
ple from nine countries
including Ethiopia, Kenya
and Russia will hit the
ground running at 8:30 a.m.
Sunday.
The race starts and ends at
the Mayo Clinic campus on
San Pablo Road and the
course winds through the
three Beaches com-


munities with two and a half
miles on the beach.
Jacksonville Beach Police
Cmdr. GenePaulSmith said
the safety of the spectators
and race participants is key.
Traffic along the 26.2 mile
course will be interrupted as
thousands of runners travel
across JTB and into the
Beaches.
"There is going to be some
inconvenience," Smith said.
"On a Sunday in February we
don't expect a crush of traf-
fic."
The eastbound lanes of JTB
will close at 7 a.m. in prepa-
ration for the 8:30 a.m. start-
ing time. Both lanes will
remain closed until 3 p.m.
when the race ends.
Motorists will be routed to
Hodges with officers posi-
tioned at important intersec-
tions to facilitate a smooth
flow.

The TPC Clubhouse was built using "green" construction techniques and daily ope
to be conservation-friendly, according to the manager.


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Going "green" is an
emerging trend that has
some local businesses clean-
ing up their acts.
Several guest speakers at a
Beaches Chamber of
Commerce Luncheon
Wednesday explained the
growing significance of busi-
nesses becoming more envi-
ronmentally friendly.
"It's just the right thing to
do in this day and age unless
you want to wake up to a
landfill in your backyard,"
said TPC Clubhouse General
Manager Bill Hughes, who is
six-months into the process
of making the $32 million
TPC Clubhouse "green."
Hughes also said that sur-
veys show that consumers
want to do business with
companies that are "green
friendly."
"Listen to your customers.
They're yelling loudly. They
want businesses to be
green," he said.
But, the definition of
"green" has some gray areas,
according to Hughes.
"There're no definite steps
in criteria for becoming
green," he said.


Commercial Real Estate
Developer Chuck Harcrow of
Jacksonville-based Newcom
Development, LLC, said that
Europe and the West Coast
are much more advanced in
the establishment of "green"
criteria which his company
has incorporated into its
building standards.
He explained that the
entire European Union uses
a points-based rating system
for their building code,
known as the Leadership in
Energy and Environmental
Design, or LEED.
The company studied the
concept of "going green" for
a year before making the
decision to make it a pri-
mary focus.
"The biggest impact with
us was materials and
resources," he said at
Wednesday's meeting.
For example, the company
uses recycled concrete and
tries to use regional materi-
als so that less diesel is used
to transport them.
"When you think green,
think sustainability," he
said, adding that commer-
cial buildings use a vast
amount of consumable
resources, such as water and
electricity.

Fletcher grads and teachers to reunite, share stories, and
see what the museum as the Beaches repository of his-
tory has to offer them.

Cereal deal helps
build Habitat homes
Thanks to a partnership that started in 2005 between
Kellogg's, Winn-Dixie and Habitat for Humanity, nine
families have already achieved their goal of home own-
ership, and construction on a tenth, home will soon
begin. Winn-Dixie customers will help fund the new
home each time they buy two of any Kellogg's, Keebler,
Cheez-It, Eggo or Kashi cereal products at their neigh-
borhood Winn-Dixie between now and March 16.
The money raised-25 cents from each two-product
purchase- will go to Beaches Habitat, an affiliate of
Habitat for Humanity. The promotion has the poten-
tial to raise as much as $50,000 for the project. "It's
amazing to think that by purchasing cereals, crackers,
and other products, customers can help us provide
building materials for a family's new home," said Ralph
Marcello, executive director of Beaches Habitat for
Humanity. "Thanks to Winn-Dixie, Kellogg's, and their
customers for helping make this family's dream of
home ownership a reality."

Coughlin speaks at Senior Center
Keli Coughlin, executive director of the Jay Fund,
founded by former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach
Tom Coughlin, will visit The Players Community
Senior Center at 11 a.m. March 18.
Keli has been working in a volunteer capacity with
the Jay Fund since 1998 and was named executive
director in 2004. She has been a resident of Jacksonville
Beach since 1998 and served as the head athletic train-
er at the University of North Florida prior to joining the
Jay Fund full time. She is the eldest of Tom and Judy
Coughlin's four children. Call 280-3233 for more infor-
mation or to make your reservations.

Local Artist Gregory Knight Monday paints the scenic view by Pete's Bar in Neptune Beach. Knight lives.in
Atlantic Beach and has participated in the Jacksonville Art Walk and plans to participate in the North
Beaches Art Walk next week.


Dave Huffstettler, the city's current building official,
is taking a job in Grand Cayman and his last day with
the city is Feb. 22, according to City Manager Jim
Hanson.
Hanson said that the city has started interviewing
candidates and that there are "several good applica-
tions."
However, the city is working towards finalizing a con-
tract with a private engineering company, Capri
Engineering, to take over Huffstetteler's duties until the
position is filled, Hanson said. The company has sever-
al offices throughout Florida and one based in St.
Augustine.
Hanson anticipates using the company's services for
approximately 30 to 60 days during the transition.
If the contract is finalized, Capri Engineering will pro-
vide the city with building official services three days
per week for approximately $9,000 per month, accord-
ing to Hanson.
The cost of hiring a private firm is approximately the
same as what the city pays for the someone in the posi-
tion full-time.
"I don't anticipate a budget change," Hanson said.
But, he explained that the city does save money by
having a full-time building official because that person
works five days per week, rather than three..
Huffstettler has worked for the city for one year and


four months, according to the Human Resources
Department.

Penman Road South opening in sight
According to the city of Jacksonville Beach's official
website listing of road closures, Penman Road South is
not scheduled to be closed after Feb. 29.
The roadway between Beach Boulevard -and Shetter
Avenue has been closed for several months, while the
road is realigned at Beach Boulevard. The road has
remained closed while underground drainage work is
completed along Beach Boulevard by a JTA contractor.

Nocatee developer speaks to Chamber

Ray, who has previously held executive positions
with Jacksonville-based The Charter Co. and LTV Corp.

Residents grill Nocatee developer


by GRAY ROHRER
STAFF WRITER

Greg Barbour might have
felt more like a punching bag
than a developer Monday
night.
In front of an audience of
about 50 at the Palm Valley
Community Association meet-
ing, Barbour was peppered
with questions about the Pare
Group's proposal to add 541
acres to the 15,000-acre devel-
opment of Nocatee west of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
Barbour, a principal in Parc,
master developer of Nocatee,
explained that single-family
homes would be built along
the Intracoastal north of
County Road 210. The land is
needed to free up land within
Nocatee for parking and ball
fields, Parc has said.
Mary Kohnke, who as a St.
Johns County commissioner
in 2001 voted to approve
Nocatee, questioned Barbour's
integrity, saying he promised
Nocatee would not approach
the Intracoastal.
"You said you would never
dream of touching the
Intracoastal," Kohnke said to
Barbour. "And here you are ...
years later," she said.
Kohnke said the land should
be added to Nocatee only if a
200-foot buffer separated the
homes from the Intracoastal
and if no docks were allowed.
"If you're going to do it,
then do what any other devel-
oper with personal integrity
would do and buffer it," she
told Barbour.
"That's not fair," he replied.
"You weren't fair when you
came to me . and said you
wouldn't touch the
Intracoastal," she retorted.
Residents also vented their
frustration over the reasoning
behind the project and the


environmental impact devel-
opment would have on the
area.
Barbour said by adding the
541 acres, the Parc Group
could create football and soc-
cer fields just west of Davis
Park that would provide 7,500
parking spaces for the PGA
Tour during the annual Players
Championship golf tourna-
ment.
Vernon Kelly, project man-
ager for the recent $65 million
renovations to the TPC course
and clubhouse, told residents
the extra parking will be need-
ed as the PGA Tour expands
and promotes the tournament.
But residents did not under-
stand the connection between
the Tour's need for extra park-
ing and the annexation of
lands along the Intracoastal.
"For one week of parking
you're going to take over all
this land?" one resident asked.
Kohnke said no one has
made a concerted effort to use
Davis Park as a parking area
during the tournament.
"We talked to the [St. Johns
County] Recreation and Park
Department about parking at
Davis Park. The situation was
such that parking would cause
severe damage," Kelly said.
But Kohnke countered, say-
ing the soccer fields need to be
renovated anyway, and they
could provide ample parking
for the tournament.
"There's no reason you can't
use those fields back there,"
she said.
The Parc Group's proposal,
which was submitted to coun-
ty planners in December,
would add to Nocatee 541
acres along the west bank of
the Intracoastal Waterway
north of County Road 210.
Although Barbour said the
plan calls for the development
of 141 acres for single-family


homes with 400 acres pre-
served, residents said the envi-
ronmental impact would be
prohibitive.
"You're building in an estu-
arine area. If you build just one
house in that area, it's going to
have an impact," one resident
said.
"That's what I find so
appalling that you would pol-
lute the estuary to build these
homes," Kohnke said.
Residents also said the
Intracoastal lands epitomize
the 'Old Florida' landscape,
something rapid development
is quickly wiping out.
Barbour countered that the
additional lands along the
Intracoastal are the "spoil
lands" that were the result of
the dredging done by the
Army Corps of Engineers more
than 50 years ago.
"These lands have already
been affected by man," he
said.
He added that the Parc
Group would develop the area
in an organized manner, some-
thing future developers may
not do.
But residents were not buy-
ing Barbour's arguments.
"How much more land are
you planning to annex? You
seem to be taking areas that
don't belong to you," said
Phyliss Abbatiello, a resident
of Northwestern St. Johns
County.
Barbour said the proposal is
still being reviewed by county
planners. He said the process
of getting the plan approved
by the Board of County
Commissioners could take up
to a year.
Barbour is scheduled to
speak to the Ponte Vedra
Beaches Coalition at 10 a.m.
Feb. 25 .at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.


Members fume over Cabana dues


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
Hell hath no fury like a cus-
tomer faced with an 80 percent
price increase especially if the
customer sees little or no justifi-
cation for the hike.
"Fury" may describe the feel-
ings of some members of the
oceanfront Cabana Club in
Ponte Vedra Beach, whose irrita-
tion at a recent increase in
annual membership fees has
been expressed in e-mails to
each other and in letters to
Cabana Club management.
"I would like to express my
extreme anger over your deci-
sion to increase your members'
annual dues yet again, and this
time by an exorbitant nearly 80
percent," says a letter to man-
agement from Andrea Splan.
"I believe that the dues
increase is unreasonable and is
tantamount to price gouging,"
Corri Davis says in a Feb. 11 let-
ter to Jeff Mayers, general man-
ager of the Sawgrass Golf Resort
& Spa, formerly known as the
Sawgrass Marriott Resort.
Cabana Club members were
notified in their Jan. 16 renewal
package that the annual dues for
a family is $2,490, up from
about $1,400 for 2007. That was
up from
about a 40 percent increase
the year before, members said.
Although the renewal pack-
age has no explanation for the
increase, it gives "highlights of
what's to come this spring,"
such as renovation of poolside
restrooms, resurfacing of the
pool deck, free towel service,
wireless Intemet access at pool-
side and a new pet salon, among
others.
Some members say it appears
the Sawgrass Marriott manage-
ment may have the resort's
hotel guests in mind hotel
guests have use of the Cabana
Club rather than local club
members.
"Apart from the fact that we


[members] didn't, ask for [such
improvements] .. .they're trying
to obviously go way upscale,"
Robin Deegan said in a tele-
phone interview this week,
adding, "But don't punish your
long-standing members."
"Will your members be cover-
ing the expenditures of turning
the Marriott Villas into modern
condominiums?" Andrea Splan
asked in an e-mail Tuesday.
The Sawgrass Marriott resort
has undergone about $16 mil-
lion in renovations since it was
purchased in 2006 by Redquartz
Boundary Ltd. (), an Ireland-
based investment group, and
there are plans for more renova-


tions.
Some Cabana Club members
also expressed concern that the
dues increase is a veiled effort by
the new management to force
out old members, thus freeing
space for 'new members, who
will pay an initiation fee.
Several members said the new
initiation fee for the Cabana
Club is $10,000 up from
about $4,000 when they joined.
Mayers was unavailable for
comment, and Jeff Kmic, direc-

tear out all of the existing
facilities and make it entirely
handicapped accessible. It
needs to be bigger and better.
What is there isn't enough."
Simons said he hopes to
obtain a building permit next
week to allow construction to
begin. He said he just received
the architectural plans which
were donated to the project.
"People are coming to the
table pretty great," he said.
"We know that a lot of people
will step up and donate tile or
maybe a plumber or a couple
of plumbers might donate
some work. We will be the
band leader."
Once the restrooms are

Simons said he plans to

He said that there are sever-
al benefits to going green,
including healthier people,
saving resources and consider-
Sable profit.
"We discovered it was not
only the right thing to do, it
was the profitable thing to
do," said Harcrow. "We will
make money."
Environmental Consultant
Cara Connolly of the
Jacksonville Ecology Division
for Environmental Services
Incorporated said that the
transition into the "green
movement" has its "roots in
some of the problems facing
the country today."
On the First Coast, for
example, climate changes, ris-
ing sea levels and flood risks
have gotten the attention of
some businesses, who are vol-
untarily becoming more envi-
ronmentally friendly, she
said.
"In the past, environmental
initiatives were a result of a
requirement, but now that's
changed," Connolly said.
Connolly said locally, some
businesses and land owners


are participating in the LEED
program. There are also other
programs that offer tax incen-
tives for cleaning up a con-
taminated piece of property.
There is also a movement
towards more "green" regula-
tions, according to Connolly.
Harcrow added that in three
to five years, Florida will most
likely have more stringent
building code requirements
that follow the example of
LEED.
In Neptune Beach, Building
Official Don Ford is research-
ing green building standards
to offer interested homeown-
ers and builders as an option.
Atlantic Beach has recently
purchased its first hybrid
vehicle.
Other local businesses are
already implementing green
standards.
Fleet Landing, for instance,
is using geothermal technolo-
gy to heat and cool a new
community center and apart-
ments.
Hughes said that the TPC
Clubhouse has taken several
steps to become more envi-


ronmentally friendly,' such as
planting several thousand
trees and shrubs, using eco-
friendly solvents and cleaners,
using recycled paper products,
purchasing organic produce
and reducing water usage.
"We recycled enough last
year. to save 41 million trees,"
he said,
Connolly explained that
although there is no clear-cut
method to "going green," the
best place to start is with
employees and the company's
mission statement, she said.
"Start small," she said.
"Make the company commit-
ment first, then set an exam-

City officials in November
announced that the group's
current space will be occupied
by the Beaches Healthcare
Initiative which will offer
medical, dental and mental
health care services to low
income families, those who
are underinsured or without

Several other social services
agencies including the
Beaches Emergency Assistance

Local news anchor and two-


time breast cancer survivor
Donna Deegan created the 26.2
with Donna: The National
Marathon to Fight Breast
Cancer to raise money for
research at the Mayo Clinic.
To date, Deegan said the
marathon has generated over
$500,000 in online entrance
fees alone.
Deegan also runs the Donna
Hicken Foundation to assist
under served women fighting
breast cancer in the communi-
ty.
Theresa Price, who is the spe-
cial events coordinator for the
city of Jacksonville and helped
produce the marathon, said the
economy both at the Beaches
and in Jacksonville will realize a
boom from the event.
"The hotels are full.
Businesses that may not be


open on Sundays are opening
to extend the hospitality to the
visitors," Deegan said.
"We have received so much
wonderful support. The com-
munity has been incredible. We
have been so well-received at
everything we are doing."
Deegan said she hopes, to
grow the race into a marquee
event such as the air show and
the Springing the Blues festival
that will continue to draw inter-
national visitors.
Several elite athletes, includ-
ing gold medalist Joan Benoit
who will lead the women's half
marathon, are expected to par-
ticipate in the marathon which
is a certified race course for the
Boston Marathon.

SThe Leader's Opinion


A promise is not


worth a thing


unless it's kept

Where does an 800-pound gorilla sit?
Anywhere it wants to, no ifs, ands or buts about it.
That old joke seems to be particularly on point these
days as Nocatee pursues a plan to add 541 acres along the
Intracoastal north of County Road 210 to its 15,000-acre
development.
But residents are not laughing at Nocatee's heavy-hand-
ed attempt to get the county's OK to build single-family
homes along the waterway.
When Nocatee was originally approved in 2001, the
developers promised that Nocatee would not extend to
the Intracoastal.
That promise was important to residents.
Developers are offering various reasons why the prop-
erty by the Intracoastal should be part of their mega-
development. Recreational space and parking for the
Players Championship hinge on Nocatee getting
approval to build on the waterfront property, they say.
Residents who object to the expansion cite environ-
mental impacts and other concerns.
There is one overwhelming reason, however, why the
county should immediately tell Nocatee no, it will not be
allowed to add the waterfront acreage to its development.
The reason is that promises made should be kept -it's
that simple.
Nocatee told the county it would not touch the water-
way. That promise was integral to the project getting orig-
inal approval. The promise should be honored.
The county commission should immediately rebuff
Nocatee's plan for waterfront development and make it
clear that a promise is a promise. No ifs, ands or buts
about it.

If you encounter police


Every day many citizens
and visitors come in con-
tact with Deputy Sheriffs'
for a variety of reasons. From
a routine traffic stop to an
active investigation we must
engage citizens continually
during the course of our
duties. Problems could occur,
however, when citizens do not
know how to react and
respond when approached by
an officer. This lack of knowl-
edge could result in fear, nerv-
ousness, anger, or even aggres-
sive behavior on the part of
the citizen as well as the offi-
cer. The response of many
folks who have never had any
contact with a law enforce-
ment officer is often predicted
upon what they had seen in
the movies or on television. It
is my hope that the informa-
tion gained here will assist
you when dealing with our
deputies and detectives.
Let's begin by asking the
question why would an officer
want to stop and question me?
There may be many reasons.
The officer or deputy could be
checking out a complaint that
was phoned in by a neighbor.
There could be a report of
some criminal activity which
occurred in the area. You may
have witnessed something that
could provide valuable infor-
mation in an investigation. Or
your actions could cause the
deputy to think you are having
trouble and need assistance.
The best way to clarify the sit-
uation is to ask questions.
Remember that some of their
questions are not necessarily
an accusation, but a potential
conflict could be alleviated.
Sometimes problems arise
when it seems that you have
been stopped for what you feel


-MIN .


DAVID SHOAR
GUEST COLUMNIST
is no reason at all. A crime
may have occurred nearby and
we only have a minimal
description of a possible sus-
pect that may resemble you.
Maybe your actions appear to
the officer to be suspicious, for
example: running from an area
where a crime had just
occurred. Another witness
may have pointed you out as a
suspect. If a deputy does stop
and question you, your honest
responses will usually resolve
the situation quickly. If the
officer hasn't told you why you
have been stopped, you have
every right to inquire. If
despite these considerations,
you feel that you do not want
to respond, the deputy must
respect your right not to
answer.
Another common occur-
rence is the traffic stop.
Officers make many traffic
stops for a variety of reasons.
Many times the traffic stop is
for an infraction, for a safety
violation, or the vehicle or
driver matches a description of
a suspect of a recent crime.
Here are some suggestions that
could alleviate some fears of an


officer at a traffic stop. When
signaled by a deputy, slow
.down and safely pull over to a
place out of the traffic flow. Sit
calmly, with your hands visible
on the steering wheel. If you
have any passengers, ask them
to sit quietly with their hands
visible. Avoid sudden move-
ments or ducking in the seat;
these actions could unneces-
sarily alarm the officer. If the
stop is at night, turn on your
inside light after pulling over.
For safety reasons, the deputy
would want to visually scan
the car's interior before pro-
ceeding. Do not get out of
your car unless the officer or
deputy asks that you step out.
If you are asked to do so, com-
ply in a calm manner. A sure
way to put a deputy at ease is
to communicate your actions
in advance by telling him or
her what you will be doing
before you move. If requested,
you must give the deputy your
driver's licenses and vehicle
registration. Be sure to tell the
officer where it is before reach-
ing for it, especially if you have
it tucked away in a glove box
or some other place.
Finally, if you are issued a
citation, you will be asked to
sign it. Remember, signing the
citation is not an admission of
guilt, but an acknowledgement
that you have received the
citation. Arguments over or
protests about the situation
cannot be resolved in the
street.
There is much more infor-
mation available from our
website at www.sjso.org, or
contact me at
dshoar@sjso.org.
Shoar is sheriff of St. Johns
County.

Look out


for Junior


in Daytona


on Sunday


Since last summer, the
thought of Dale Earnhardt
Jr. joining four-time
NASCAR champion Jeff
Gordon and reigning two-
time champ Jimmie Johnson
on the same team has brought
visions of dominance.
Thoughts of what the
Hendrick team was going to
do when it got down to
Daytona were kind of scary, if
you ask any NASCAR fan.
The non-points first "offi-
cial" race of the season, the
Budweiser Shootout, gave fans
a glimpse of what is to come.
Eamhardt dominated the
race, leading a Shootout-
record 47 laps, and sharing
the lead numerous times with
new teammates Gordon and
Johnson. All three drivers fin-
ished in the top-four and
Hendrick's fourth driver,
Casey Mears, finished sixth.
The following day, Johnson
won the Pole for the Daytona
500, earning the right to start
first in the race.
If NASCAR's first weekend is
.any indication of what the
remainder of Speed Weeks, or
the entire 2008 season for that
matter, holds, everyone else
will be driving for second, or
maybe fourth, if the Big Three
keep things up.
Expectations were high for
Earnhardt before he even sat
down in his new No. 88 car.
Media and fans wondered if
the pressure of joining such'
an elite team would be too
much for Earnhardt.
Seems he aced the first
exam.
Junior started fifth .in one of
yesterday's Gatorade Duels,
behind Johnson in first and
Mears in third. Should any of
the Hendricks drivers win
their races (only Gordon will
race in the second Duel), it
should be a good indicator of
what to see come Sunday.
But there are other favorites.
Tony Stewart, who gave
Earnhardt a strong run during
the Shootout, is always a con-
tender at the track, winning a
Shootout a few years ago and
a couple of Pepsi 400s.
The only disadvantage that
Stewart, who's been quoted as
saying he'd do anything,
wreck anyone, to win a
Daytona 500, has is the six-
race probation he and Kurt
Busch received for an incident
prior to the Shootout.
Fans who watched last
year's Daytona 500 remember
those two drivers were domi-
nating the race before wreck-
ing each other while running
first and second.
Other drivers worth watch-
ing include Michael Waltrip, a
year removed from the embar-
rassment of having an illegal
substance in his engine and a
former two-time Daytona 500
winner. Those who remember
how terrible the Toyotas ran
in their first season should be
impressed by how much the
car make has picked up so far
in Speed Weeks.
Juan Pablo Montoya might
be worth watching after his
impressive run at Talladega
last fall. The former Indy 500
champ now has a year under
his belt as well.
And don't count out several
other drivers: last year's win-
ner Kevin Harvick; Denny
Hamlin, who always runs
strong at Daytona, or Jamie
McMurray, winner of last
year's Pepsi 400.
It is the Daytona 500 after
all. Like we just saw a few
weeks ago in the Super Bowl,
you never know who will win.
But I don't see a Hendricks
car, especially Eamhardt's,
falling short of victory.

FROM STAFF
The Fletcher High girls bas-
ketball team jumped out to
five-point halftime lead in
Tuesday's Region 1-6A semifi-
nal at Gainesville Buchholz,
but saw the Bobcats come roar-
ing back to earn a 51-47 victo-
ry over the Senators.
It marked the third time this
season Fletcher led Buchholz at
the half, but the Bobcats man-
aged to win all four meetings.
The Senators, who had a
double-digit lead in one regu-
lar-season game and in the
District 1-6A title contest
against the Bobcats, built a 28-
23 advantage after two quar-
ters Tuesday.
In the third, Fletcher for-
ward Christiana Perkins hit a
layup with 44 seconds left to
give the Senators a 41-30 lead,
matching their biggest margin
of the evening.
But Jessica Goble hit a three-
pointer in the closing seconds
of the third quarter for
Buchholz to pull the home
team to within 41-35.
In the fourth, Buchholz con-
tinued its comeback and took
its first lead of the night since
an 8-6 first-quarter advantage,.
42-41, when Tabitha
Makopondo banked one in
from the lane.
Makopondo was fouled on
the play and after missing her
free throw, the Bobcats'
Simone Durden put back the
rebound to complete a 14-0
Buchholz run with 4:55 left to
play.
With the Bobcats leading 51-
46 and less than a minute to
play, a Buchholz player
received a technical foul for
taunting the Senators.
Fletcher's Octavia Mitchell
sank one of two free throws to
make it 51-47, but Hayley
Chandler's three-pointer in the
game's waning seconds was
short and the Bobcats hung on


for the win.
Alex Brooks led theSenators
with 16 points, with Perkins
scoring 11. Teammate Kristin
Hackworth had eight points


and 12 rebounds in the loss.
Fletcher finished the season
with an 18-9 mark, and by
advancing to the regional
semifinals, made it as far as


any. Fletcher girls basketball

fourth innings.

Running for a reason and running for a cause


It is Friday, February the
15th, 2008; do you know
what that means? It means
that we are just two days away
from the most anticipated run-
ning event of the past year and
a half: The 26.2 With Donna.
The expo is open, the partici-
pants are prepared and excite-
ment is in the air.
This sort of thing has not
been seen since the inaugural
River Run 15,000 way back in
1977.
But outside of her glamorous
newscaster persona, who is
Donna? How did this huge
event, "The National Marathon
To Fight Breast Cancer" come
to be? And what does the
Donna Hicken Foundation do
and whom has it helped?
Donna is a Jacksonville
native who attended San Jose
Catholic Elementary School
and Bishop Kenney High -
School. You see her every
weekday as a news anchor on
WTLV's First Coast News. She
has been there since 1988.
She was once married to the
sports anchor on the same
channel, Dan Hicken. Together
they had two children,
Danielle and Drew. She is mar-
ried to meteorologist Tim
Deegan. She has been using

RUNNING/FITNESS

the name Deegan more lately
although her foundation
retains the title Donna Hicken.
In 1999, at the age of 38, she
was diagnosed with breast can-
cer. In 2002, she battled the
disease again. She wrote a
book, The Good Fight, about
her personal struggle against
the disease.
It was learning about an area
woman with breast cancer who
was having a hard time not
only with cancer, but also with
making ends meet financially
that inspired Donna to create a
foundation to help local
women in need. And it was her
involvement in running that


led her to imagine and then
realize "The National
Marathon To Fight Breast
Cancer."
Since its inception five years
ago, Julie Terrazzano has been
the executive director of the
Donna Hicken Foundation.
She has also been a close friend
of Donna's since they were ten
years old.
"It was just the germ of an
idea," Terrazzano said. "Donna
told me she thought about cre-
ating a marathon to raise
awareness and funds for the
cause. I told her, 'If you get it
together, I will even run in it.'"
On Sunday, Terrazzano, still
recovering from the flu, will
participate in the Hicken Half-
Marathon, the race-within-the-
race that will accompany the
main event.
"We hoped for 5,000 runners
but we have more than 6,000
and now we have to plan for
7,000," she said. "We have run-
ners from nine different coun-
tries in the world."
Terrazzano continued: "This
is not only an inaugural breast
cancer marathon for
Jacksonville, it is a first in the
United States. This has never
been done before.
"The money raised by the
event will be split by the Mayo


Clinic and the Donna Hicken
Foundation. All the money will
stay right here. The Mayo
Clinic will use it for clinical tri-
als for breast
cancer and
we will use it

To date, the Donna Hicken
Foundation has raised over $1
million and helped out more
than 750 women in its five
years. Throughout a 16-county
radius, from Jacksonville to


Brunswick to St. Augustine and
west to Lake City, the Hicken
Foundation has given help and
hope to so many.

unable to work, she had a very
ill elderly mother and a hus-
band who was just getting
back to work after being laid
off. It wasn't long before the .


unpaid bills were piling up.
Debra has been in the hospi-
tal five times since last sum-
mer.
"We needed help but were
not the sort of people who
could qualify for any sort of
social services," Debra
explained. The Donna Hicken
Foundation gave us a place to
turn to. It gave us peace of
mind.
"Without their help I don't
know how I would have made
it. You can rest a lot easier
when you know you can get
help and the people at the
Hicken Foundation are just
wonderful."
Debra went on: "It affects
the whole family, not just the
woman with the disease. The
money the race raises is for the
future, it is for research and
could end breast cancer forev-
er. I have daughters and I
think about them and other
girls."
Truly, this race is big and
not just in terms of numbers.
It is even bigger for women
like Debra and their families.
The event's importance cannot
be overstated and when the
cannon fires at 8:30 a.m.
Sunday morning, there will be
a great many people running
for a reason.

Father and son surf


to top of the North


Florida ESA rankings


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER

ather and son surfers Jim
and Kevin Cox are the
No. 1 surfers in their
divisions for the North
Florida district of the Eastern
Surfing Association [ESA].
Kevin, 16, won regionals
last year in junior men's (ages
15-17) and went undefeated
in every heat during the sea-
son. Jim, 52, surfs in the leg-
ends long board [ages 50 and
up] and grandmasters short
board [ages 45-54] divisions
and placed fourth at regionals
last year.
"Kevin has been entertain-
ing us on the beach since he
was 5 years old," said Mitch
Kaufmann, director of the
North Florida district, the
largest district of the ESA this
year.
"In the past year, he has
progressed faster than anyone
his age. He is our No. 1
Junior and the most likely
candidate to win the
Regionals and Hatteras [East
Coast Championship] this
year.
"When the waves are good,
he's at the pier raising the
performance level."
Kevin placed a disappoint-
ing seventh overall on the
East Coast last year in his
first appearance in the ESA
Championships in Cape
Hatteras, N.C. One of his
scores was cut in half during
a heat when three surfers
went for the same wave.
"My goal this
year is to do better
in Easterns and
not get a call,"
Kevin said. "Three
people were pad-
dling for one
wave; I wanted to
go right, he went
left and he was up
first so he got the
wave."
Jim Cox's fourth
place finish at
regionals qualified
him to surf in the
ESA champi-
onships last year
but he didn't have
the vacation time
from his job as
general manager
for the u
Employment
Guide publication.
"It killed me last year not
being able to go and see
Kevin surf his first time at
Hatteras," said Jim, who has
already set his vacation time
this year for the regionals
and East Coast champi-
onships.
"Surfing is the total father-
son thing to do for us. It's
something he's enjoyed from
the time he was a little kid
and it's a passion of mine. I
get to spend time with him
and the youth in the commu-
nity through ESA."
Jim Cox started surfing in
Ocean City, Maryland in
1968. He and his family lived
in Baltimore during the
school year [he went to
Calvert Hall High School for
any relocated Marylanders
reading this] and spent sum-
mers living in Ocean City.
When it was time to select
a college, Jim chose
Jacksonville University for its
art department and proximity
to the ocean. He moved to
Jacksonville in 1974 and has
lived here ever since.
"We have a great tribe here
in North Florida," Jim said.
"We all look out for each
other and our kids. It's a pret-
ty cool environment."
Jim surfed a couple of con-
tests when he was young but
didn't really begin to surf
competitively in the ESA
until 1999 when Kevin start-
ed surfing. Jim not only surfs,
he also volunteers with the
ESA events helping out in
any way he can from timing
heats to breaking down
events.
"We are lucky to have Jim
Cox here in North Florida,"
Kaufmann said. "He is a huge
help at all ESA contests, as
well as the WaveMasters
Contest. Jim always has a
smile and a positive attitude,
which is a real pleasure.under
the tent."
Kevin lives in Atlantic
Beach, and attended Atlantic
Beach Elementary until sec-,
ond grade. He was home


school by his mom, Lorraine
Cox, from third to sixth
grade and then attended
Fletcher Middle for seventh
and eighth grade.
He is currently in high
school through the Florida

Civil rights author at The Book Mark


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Author and journalist Charles
E. Cobb Jr., a founding member
of the National Association of
Black Journalists, will speak and
sign copies of his latest book,
"On the Road to Freedom: A
Guided Tour of the Civil Rights
Trail," at 7 p.m. Saturday at The
Book Mark in Atlantic Beach.
A prominent black journalist
who has reported for National
Public Radio, PBS's "Frontline"
and National Geographic maga-
zine, Cobb will share his inti-
mate knowledge of the civil
rights movement.
As a college student at
Howard University in the early
1960s, Cobb helped register
black .voters in rural Mississippi
as a member of the Student : '
Nonviolent Coordinating i
Committee (SNCC).
Filled with maps, photo-
graphs and first-hand inter-
views, "On the Road to
Freedom" (Algonquin Books,
$18.95) is a useful travel guide
for anyone interested in retrac-
ing 400 historic sites along the
civil rights trail, including ones
in Jacksonville.
From the Freedom Rides of
1961 to the assassination of Dr.
Martin Luther King at the
Lorraine Motel in Memphis in
1968, Gobb takes the reader "to
the places where the pioneers of
the movement march, sat-in at lunch counters and gathered in
churches," the book says.
"He pays tribute not only to the men and women etched into


lI ',J t, ,i i


our national memory, but to local
people whose seemingly small
contributions made an impact."
When he was in college, Cobb
said he picketed a Woolworth's in
Massachusetts to show solidarity
for southern protesters.
"There was a discussion going
on among a lot of students about
whether sit-ins would really
change anything, [or] whether
you should commit a real chunk
of time to working in the South,"
Cobb recalled in an interview
posted at noeasyvictories.org.
"And it stuck me that more
than sitting at lunch counters,
this was probably something
important."
After reading about the exploits
of the Freedom Riders in his col-
lege newspaper at Howard, Cobb
joined the SNCC and spent five
years in Mississippi organizing
black voters.
"As a field secretary for the
SNCC, I came in contact with
journalists and saw what they
wrote. Inevitably, one says, 'I can
do a hell of a lot better than that.'
It seemed. to be important to
begin to figure out ways to com-
municate what I'd seen."
In 1969, Cobb left a teaching
job to live and report in Tanzania.
He has been a foreign affairs cor-
respondent ever since and is cur-
rently a senior writer for
AllAfrica.com.
He co-authored "No Easy
Victories: African Liberation and
American Activists over a Half Center, 1950-2000."
. "On the Road to Freedom" was published in December 2007.

Retiring from writing, not gardening


T his is my final article of
a long writing career
with The Beaches Leader.
I have been writing a week-
ly column since 1987. I will
continue to be available to
you as a Master Gardener in
receiving your phone ques-
tions, and you can place this
number 363-9872, somewhere
handy so you can call me if
you need gardening advice.
As always, you can call the
Cooperative Extension Service
at 387-8850 M-F and ask for a
Master Gardener as well. I
hope there will be many
things you have learned or
laughed about if you've read
my column for all these years!
Amidst the colorful annuals,
perennials and fresh green
shrubs and trees readily avail-
able at this time of year, we
are also enticed.by the tropi-.
cal plants, especially the tan-
talizing bougainvillea.
You simply can't miss this
plant in its gorgeous colors,
strutting its stuff and proudly
saying "You can't walk past
me without noticing me!" If
you haven't purchased one in
the past, I bet you will this
year, simply because you can-
not resist them! I can't, but
they drive me crazy.
I get plenty of questions
from you all and still don't
have great answers. But, this
spring, I will try again; my
yard is sunny and these guys
love the sun, are supposed to
do well in zones 9-11 (we are
zone 9), and some are in pots
while others are in the
ground. Spring gives me the.
renewed energy to play with a
plant again, and perhaps this
year, I'll have a beauty. I live
inland by the Avenues Mall
and I think those of you liv-
ing closer to the beach are
luckier than I with this plant.

Be BARBARA
MATHESON
GARDENING
COLUMNIST

careful of the thorns, watch
your language when the plant
acts up on you, and let me
know how you do!
,Perhaps you have receik ed.
some seed catalogs and are
planning to buy something
new for the vegetable garden.
I get Park's Seed Catalog, a
company from Greenwood,
SC, and just listen to some of
the names of new vegetables
:" Tomato 'Big Rainbow', Beet
'Touchstone Gold', Pea
'Blondie', Carrot 'White Star',
Tomato 'Red Currant', Pak-
Choi 'Violetta', and Corn
'Mini Yellow Mirai'. Gosh, I'd
buy them all just to see what
they look like. It sounds like
these would be a sure way to
get a child who despises veg-
etables really turned on to
them!
There is "A Day of
Gardening" workshop, to be
held on Saturday, Feb. 23,
from 9-3 at the Duval County
Coop. Extension Service that
you will not want to miss,
especially if you are new to
the area. Topics, from speakers
will be on pesticides, fertiliz-
ers, organic gardening, herbs,


growing palms, growing toma-
toes, tips for your lawns, com-
posting, vermiculture, grow-
ing fruits, landscape design
and the care of those plants,
conservation of water as we
garden, enticing wildlife to
your yard, and recognizing
what is an "invasive" plant as
well as a "native" plant.
There will be many exhibits
as well, and to me, this is a
program every homeowner
should attend. I do not know
how they expect to get all
these topics covered, but'
believe me, the speakers are
terrific! There is a $10 fee, and
you must register by Feb. 21
by calling 387-8850.
Just attending and absorb-
ing one day of this type of
information will give you the
confidence you need, and the
rationalee to understand the
"whys" and howss" of all
aspects of gardening in NE
Florida. Try to attend.
We are still encouraging you
to hold off on the drastic
pruning, even though things
look pretty bad. I am having a
hard time myself, but I am
sure we will get another night
of temperatures in the freez-
ing range. It is OK to prune
crape myrtles if you really
need to, and for an arborist to
thin out large branches of
trees such as the Live Oaks
and Magnolias.
If you have small trees, you
can remove a few branches to
encourage'the shape of the
plant as it grows. You never
want the center of the plant
to be all entangled, so select a
few good branches to keep
and prune out the rest. As
soon as the chance of freezes
has passed, you'll be able to
fertilize these plants with a
product like 15-0-15, and they
will take off. with new growth.


All shrubs and trees within 5
years of age should be fertil-.
ized, some varieties more fre-
quently or with special fertil-
izer blends.
For those of you with palm
trees, depending where you
live you might have some
that are freeze-damaged.
Again, wait until the chance
of a late freeze has passed,
then it is ok to trim off the
cold-damaged fronds. But,
leave any that have green on
them because this provides for
photosynthesis, the way a
plant makes its food. If you
do prune, it is advisable to
spray right afterward with a
fungicide containing copper
that is appropriate for palms,
and repeat it in 10 days.
Copper sprays should not
be used more than twice,
however, because buirnng the
leaves is a possibility. If you
Shave palms that are damriaged,
try to attend that workshop I
mentioned because the gentle-
man doing the talk on palms
is a real expert, yet easy to
understand. Palms are a diffi-
cult plant not only to grow
here, but also to keep looking
nice, unless you have the
secret knowledge!
If nothing else in all these
years of writing, I hope you
have learned to accept our
Florida climate just as it is,
and that we can grow some
phenomenal things here.I will
be here, just not in the paper
or when I am away from the
phone. I know so many of
you by your voice but have
never laid eyes on you! I
know it will be hard for me to
quit, but I too, will keep grow-
ing, as I did with this deci-
sion. Who knows, you just
might see me giving a talk or
at a Plant Clinic!

"Pictures at an Exhibition" as
you have never heard it or seen
it before! Through a technique
known as "Choreographed Paint-

created a symbiosis between
painting and music. The paintings "live" and the mu-
sic becomes "visible".
While music exists and can be measured in time, it
doesn't exist in space. Painting exists in space but it
doesn't change through time once it's completed. "Pic-

ARTS


Von Genk, Knight perfect craft


Finding a subject, concen-
trating on it and perfect-
ing it, making it your
own, is one of the surest way!
to success and recognition in
the field of art.
Two of the three artists
who opened exhibits at Town
Center last weekend have fol-
lowed this formula.
Henry Von Genk III in his
exhibit, "Florida Captured in
Oils," at Sellers Gallery Annei
Neptune Beach paints marsh-
lands from all different angle:
and locations in the same col
ors but in different sizes.
All frames are the same. It
is s though he has movd
around to different locations
while painting the same
marsh. The works are beauti-
ful and for anyone looking
for marsh scenes you will not
find better or more varied
works.
See his work at 200 First
Street, Neptune Beach. Call
247-7200.
* *
Another artist has followed
this same rule for success -
concentrating on one form of
art Gregory Knight who
opened an exhibit at Shelby's
Coffee Shoppe last Friday
night.
His chosen field is the
human figure. He paints both
men and women standing
and sitting in a musical set-
ting. A trumpet player, a
dancer, all in vivid color.
The man can draw, the
most important element in
successful art. Interesting, col
orful, large and small with a
variety of backgrounds, he
has found an art form at
which he excels. See it at 200
First Street, Neptune Beach.
On the same block as the
above mentioned galleries is
First Street Gallery, which '
opened an exhibit last Friday
night.
Featured artist Linda Olsen
paints mermaids and palm
trees. The mermaids are
unique.and-beautiful, and I
would hope the artist'Woild"
concentrate on this one art
form at which she excels.
Her drawing is perfect, and
the colors beautiful. Palm
trees are a subject painted by
every Florida artist but the
mermaids are unique. See her
work at 116-B First Street,
Neptune Beach.

'Pretty Cool' sophomoric and moronic


by SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR

Think back to your high
school years. Without doubt,
you'll remember the class
geek, usually an awkward, not-
too-bright nerd dressed in
clothes rejected by the local
thrift store. Inside, though,
that less-than-attractive, gan-
gling teen mishap had the
same aspirations as every
other testosterone-driven
male. "Pretty Cool" tells the
story of Will Burke, a bum-
bling character who acquires
the power to read minds and
make gorgeous girls do his bid-
ding. While in no way original
- think of Mel Gibson's "What
Women Want" and Scott Baio's
"Zapped!" it's surprisingly


funny. Juvenile, sophomoric
and even moronic fit it too,
but it's better than most of this
B-movie genre!
Will Burke ("Sex and the
City," "American Dreams")
plays the lead in this R-rated,
92-minute flick. As he's about
to graduate from high school,
he's startled to find summer
school is mandatory. Sick of
teachers and books, he sneaks
into the principal's office and
tries changing his grades on
the school computer. By acci-
dent, the machine' crosses
wires with a secret mind con-
trol experiment.
Burke, somehow, gets
zapped by the errant computer
and acquires the ability to read
minds. He's also able to make
nubile young females, who


abound in this movie, do any-
thing he wishes. Though
detailing his actions would
spoil the flick, think being
invisible in the girls' locker
room.
A standout in this teen com-
edy is Amy Brassette ("Reno
911"), who plays Burke's
snooty, overbearing sister. She
has a similar coterie of friends,
none of whom will even talk
to the class nerd. With his new
mental powers needing a try-
out, Burke decides extreme
flatulence is a suitable punish-
ment for the holier-than-thou
trio.
Later, in one of the flick's
twists, Brassette exchanges
minds with a female cat in
heat, of course. This leads to
some of the movie's funniest


pranks.
Rolfe Kanefsky ("Thereis
Nothing out There," "The
Hazing") gets the credit (or
blame) for both.directing and
writing the screenplay.
Though the. script is merely
adequate, the cast does an
excellent job. Kanefsky gets an
A for eliciting fine perform-
ances.
Before purchasing "Pretty
Cool" (street price: $20), be
sure to visit
www.mtivideo.com to view
the trailer. Surprisingly, the
flick has spawned "Pretty Cool
Too," an entirely separate
video with different players.
The theme's the same, though.
"Pretty Cool" is a notch
above most sophomoric teen
comedies. It's worth a look!

Wintertime can be
tough on skin and hair
not just for humans,
but for pets, as well.
With windows closed
and heaters on, low
humidity indoors can
make your pet's skin
dry and itchy. It can
also cause static elec-
tricity in his coat.
Grooming profes-
sionals say that weekly
home maintenance
can help you make
your pet more com-
fortable and will keep .-
his skin and coat
healthy all winter..
Begin with the
brush
An essential compo-
nent of any grooming routine is regular brush-
ing, according Val Penstone, Directoi of
Grooming for Best Friends Pet Resorts and
Salons, the largest company in the pet hospi-
tality industry in the U.S.
Penstone recommends brushing and comb-
ing long-haired pets at least once a week to
prevent matting. Matted hair,, she says, is, a
major cause of skin problems in winter
months. 'It holds: dampness against your pet's
skin and can cause redness, irritation, and
odors."
If static electricity is a problem, Penstone
suggests trying a moisturizing anti-static spray
or detangier. The Use. of a home humidifier
. can help reduce' tai~"apri make bpth you and
your pet more comfortable.
And, she adds, just because your pet has a
sleek or short coat doesn't mean you can
ignore regular brushing. "Brushing short-coat-
ed pets with a soft bristle brush stimulates the
natural oils in the skin and will help counter-
act dryness,"' Penstone explains.
Shampoo and condition
Contrary to popular opinion, pets do need
regular shampooing during the winter
months. In fact, notes Penstone, done proper-
ly, regular bathing can help to reduce dryness,.
matting and related skin problems. Always fol-
low the shampoo with a conditioning rinse or
moisturizing treatment.
Don't be tempted to use your own hair care
products on your pet. Animal's skin has a dif-

ferent pH from human's
skin, so choose products
specially formulated for
pets. If your pet's skin
seems especially dry or
scaly, he may need a
medicated anti-seborrhe-
ic treatment formulated.
for pets. If you aren't
sure which products are
right for you, consult a
professional groomer for
product recommenda-
tions.
Foot and nail care
Your pet's feet also
require special attention
-during the winter, says
Penstone. You will prob-
ably need to clip your
dog's nails more fre-
quently during the win-
ter months. With shorter days ahd inclement
weather, most pets5.hve fewer hours of exer-
cise and nails can become overgrown. The
ideal length for a dog's nail is barely touching
the ground when the dog is standing still. Use
only a proper nail-clipping tool, taking off a
small amount at a time. It's a good idea to
have a styptic pencil' or some cornstarch
handy to stop thieflow of blood -- just in case
you nick the quick.
Keep the hair on your pet's feet trimmed.
Long hair can form uncomfortable mats
between and uner the toes and can cause
snow and ice to become packed in between
the pads of ~~he ie ut,.auSJpg Irritation.
SSalt ,usl Jp~~ 4l, ng.j4 roads and sidewalks
can cause yqur pet's pads to become cracked
and sore. Wash toes and pads with warm
water after walks to remove any salt residue,
dry them thoroughly, and apply a protective
product.
Grooming for health
SRegular groopningis important to your pet's
good health. And, .says Penstone, those
grooming sessions also strengthen the bond
between you and your pet. If there are tasks
you cannot or do not want to undertake your-
self like nail, clipping or tangle removal --
don't just skip them. Seek the help of a pro-
fessional groomer: Your pet will be happier
and healthier,.

Award winning author speaks of Jewish influence in comics


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
The author of an award- winning book on the
Jewish influence on comic book superheroes will
give a lecture at Chabad at the Beaches at 6:30
p.m. on February 20.
"Superheroes evoke the eternal themes found
in the Bible and within Jewish experience," said
Rabbi Simcha Weinstein, author of "Up, Up, and
Oy Vey, How Jewish History and Values Shaped
the Comic Book Hero" in a telephone interview.
In his lecture at Chabad, Weinstein will explain
the history of the early comic book industry and
the impact of Jewish tradition on the genre.
This tradition is rich in stories about the tri-
umph of good over evil and in heroic and super
strong figures such as Sampson, Moses, and
Judith, he said.
After reading Michael Chabon's Pulitzer Prize
winning book, 'The Amazing Adventures of
Kavalier & Clay", Weinstein researched who the
early comic book writers in the 1930's and 1940's
were.
A large number were Jews, including the cre-
ators of Superman, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegal, he
said.
Writers write about what they know and the
Superman story has many parallels to the story of
Moses from the Bible. Both were sent from home
by their family to save their lives and afterwards
lived in a foreign land.
"Superman's name, Kal-El means Voice of
God."
The "el" in Biblical names such as Daniel and
Michael are a reference to God, said Weinstein.
The writers either consciously chose this name
for its significance or may have simply used it
because they were familiar with the tradition, he
said.
"The 1930's and 1940's were a time of real vil-
lains"
It is no coincidence that the early comic book
writers created superheroes at that time. Their


Spiderman, who is Weinstein's favorite super-
hero, has a double identity like most superheroes.
The early Jewish superhero writers were second
generation Americans who were striving to
remain Jews while assimilating into American


society.
Nlany of the superheroes personify American
\values, said Wenmtern. At the same time they face
the challenge of being an outsider in society.
Spiderman is irom a largely Jewish area of
Queens in New 'York. He is a combination of
youth, tremendous power, insecurity, and vulner-
ability, said Weinstein.
\Veinstein's book won the Benjamin Franklin
Award for Best Religion Book in 2007.
"It was an honor to have the chance to write
the book....to empower...and entertain people,"
he said.
aWeinstein lives in
Brooklyn Heights, New
York where he serves as
the rabbi at the Pratt
n Institute.
He has bachelor's degree
Sin Film History from
Manchester Metropolitan
University in England and
worked in the film indus-
try prior to becoming a
rabbi.
His website is
www.rabbisimcha.com
Tickets for Weinstein's
lecture at Chabad are $20
until February 15 and $36
after that date. Chabad is
at 521 SR AlA in Ponte
Vedra. For information or
to reserve a ticket call 285-
1588 or visit www.chabad-
beaches.com.
The early comic book creators were almost all
Jewish, and as children of immigrants, they spent
their lives trying to escape the second-class men-
tality which was forced on them by the outside
world. Their fight for truth, justice, and the
American Way is portrayed by the superheroes
they created. The dual identity given to their cre-
ations mirrors their own desire to live two lives

insights on the connection between the super-
hero genre and Jewish tradition and ethics in a
lecture at Chabad at the Beaches on Feb. 20.

book that Weinstein wrote.

piivately as a Jew and publicly as an American.
Their creations are the descendants of a Jewish
tradition littered with stories of super strength
from Samson to the Golem of Prague. An increas-
ing number of fans and amateur historians,
obsessed with back-story "mythology," claim
they've uncovered the secret "Jewish-ness" of the
comic book characters. Superheroes, they claim,
are usually outsiders; gifted yet misunderstood,
and strangers in a strange land.
