NB center

gets grant

for upgrade
FROM STAFF
A state grant of $91,884 has
been awarded to the Neptune
Beach Senior Activity Center
for capital improvements,
according to officials with the
Department of Elder Affairs.
Center director Leslie Lyne
applied for the state grant,
which must be used for capital
improvements, in November.
"I am stoked," said Lyne,
adding she and those who use
the center are very excited
about the recent grant
announcement.
Major improvements will be
made to the building, built in
1977, such as installing new
lighting for safety, installing a
new ceiling, adding a covered
walkway, adding a new com-
puter system and improving
the parking lot, including more
handicapped spaces, Lyne said.

Donner residents unite

to fight crime, violence


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A coalition of concerned cit-
izens are coming together
Tuesday to work toward
improved safety along
Mayport Road, according to
meeting organizers.
A group of residents has
called a community meeting
at 6 p.m. at the Donner Park
Community Center, 2072
George St., to address the
area's growing crime and vio-
lence problem, according to
an organizer Sarge Milton. The
violence includes a recent
incident in which a man who
fired at police was shot to
death by them, police report-
ed.
"We want to work together
as one to solve some of these
issues," said Milton, a resident
of the area. He said problems
at the Beaches mirror those in
Jacksonville, but said the
Beaches community has a bet-


ter chance of "solving" the
problems because of its size.
Topics of discussion will
include violence and murder,
safety and protection, police
and fire service and inciting
community involvement.
Several agencies have been
invited to attend the meeting,
including Atlantic Beach city
officials, police officials, mem-
bers of the ACLU, Families of
Slain Children and local cler-
gy.
For more information, call
651-8769 or the Donner Park
Community Center at 247-
5851.
Atlantic Beach has already
agreed to tackle the issue of
crime along Mayport Road
during city strategic planning
sessions to be held Feb. 27 and
28. Various solutions will be
addressed,including the possi-
bility of more police presence
in the neighborhoods west of
Mayport Road.

Cute characters
create consumers

by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
The topic at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library was the
often-insidious lure of the elec-
tronic media for young chil-
dren.
While New York author
Susan G. Thomas spoke on the
issue to several mothers, grand-
mothers ard nannies
SWednesday, some of their
young charges gravitated to a.
nearby area and into chairs in
front of blank computer
screens.
"All they want to do is sit at
the computer," Amy Cornett
said, lamenting that the
library's book shelves don't
attract children as they did in
the past.
"Yeah, I wish they weren't
here," Jennifer Price-Easterling,
said about the computers in
the children's area of the


library.
Thomas, author of "Buy, Buy
Baby How Consumer Culture
Manipulates Parents and
Harms Young Minds," told the
mothers that easy access to the
computers makes, their jobs
harder.
"If they're right out here,
you can't compete with that,"
Thomas said.
A mother of two young chil-
dren, Thomas said hers is the
first generation of mothers not
to consult their own mothers
on questions of child-rearing.
Instead, they consult other
mothers and books, and often
turn to so-called "educational".
television programs and videos
such as Baby Einstein products
because the mothers believe
they can help a child leam, she
said.
But much of that program-
ming is geared toward making
-the child a lifetime consumer,
which could be worth "a cou-
ple hundred thousand dollars"
to a merchandiser, Thomas


said.
Children up to age 3 are
most vulnerable to shows with
central characters whose
images end up on products.
"They can't separate out ...
the difference between market-
ing and happiness," Thomas
said
"The more times your child
is going to encounter a
licensed character," she said,
"the deeper they have you"
ingrained in buying products
containing the character, she
said.
Members of the audience
wanted to know what they
could do to combat the con-
sumer culture.
"Don't believe the hype,"
Thomas said. "You're the mom
- turn it [the television] off,"
she said.
Children should learn to
play and entertain themselves,
Thomas said.
"What do they do in other
cultures?" she asked. "They
play in the dust."


Benefit golf

tourney is set

during Black

History month

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
An golf tournament to benefit
an African American museum in
Jacksonville Beach tees off
Monday at the city's golf cub.
The Rhoda L. Martin Cultural
Heritage Center will sponsor the
inaugural Heritage Classic
beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the
municipal course located at 605
Penman Road in Jacksonville
Beach.
Registration fees are $75 for
single players and $300 for a
foursome. Sign sponsorship is
also available for $100.
Participants will include
Jacksonville Jaguar cornerback
Rasheed Mathis, Jacksonville
City Councilman Art Graham,
Jacksonville Beach City
Councilman Tom Taylor, golf-
ing great Calvin Peete and the
first African-American pro-golfer
to play on the PGA Tour, Charlie
Sifford.
Proceeds will help fund oper-
ating expenses for the cultural
center which is named for local
civil rights activist Rhoda
Martin.
Martin founded the first
school for African American


children in the community
more than 70 years ago in a
four-room school house that
now houses the center.
The historic brick school
house was restored last year
with donations from private
donors, state and city contribu-
tions.
Program Treasurer Mable Bass
Thursday said the goal is to raise
"as much as possible" to get the
museum up and running and
hire an onsite director to allow
the center to operate during spe-
cific hours. Currently it is only
open by prearrangement and
reservation.
The preservation committee
has not yet identified any
potential candidates to staff the
facility, Bass said.
Bass said the cultural center
has received a positive response
from the community since con-
struction was completed last
year.
Several school groups have
toured the facility and Bass said
funds raised at the tournament
will be used to implement a
Great Leaps reading program
geared to help students of all
ages with phonics, sight phrases
and reading fluency.i
"We hope to raise around
$15,000," sh said. "There is still
some furniture that we need for
that room."
For information about the
Rhoda L. Martin Cultural
Heritage Center contact Kortney
Wesley or program treasurer
Mable Bass at 249-4628.

Surviving rip currents
As spring approaches and
temperatures start to rise the
U.S. Coast Guard auxiliary
reminds beachgoers that such
currents can be extremely
dangerous, dragging swim-
mers away from the beach
and leading to death by
drowning when they attempt
to fight the current and
become exhausted.
Ac:ordiing to the United
States Lifesaving Association
1 i La.u rip currents cause
approximately 100 deaths
annually in the United States,
more than all other natural
hazard except heat and
floods. Over 80 rve'cent of res-
cues by surf beach lifeguards
are due to rip currents -
totaling 18.000 lifeguard res-
cues a year.
To avoid and survive
rip currents
First and foremost learn
how to swim
Never swim alone.
Be cautious at all times,
especially when swimming at
unguarded beaches.
If in doubt, don't go out!
Whenever possible, swim
at a lifeguard protected beach.
Obey all instructions and
orders from lifeguards.
Don't fight the current.


Swim out of the current in a
direction following the shore-
line. When out of the current,
swim towards shore.
If you are unable to swim
out of the rip current, float or
calmly tread water. When out
of the current, swim towards
shore.
If you are unable to reach
shore, draw attention to your-
self: Face the shore, wave
your arms, and yell for help.
If you see someone in
trouble, get help from a life-
guard. If a lifeguard is not
available, have someone call
9-1-1. Throw the rip current
victim something that floats
and yell instructions on how
to escape. Remember, many
people drown trying to save
someone else from a rip cur-
rent.

Auxiliary, the uniformed

Labor needed for ARC
Builders Care seeks help for
The ARC, a day program for
disabled adults that is relocat-
ing to Penman Road. Labor is

for two weeks.
In the near future, there
will be paint and clean-up
opportunities for lay people
as well as duties for trades-
men. Visit the Builders Care

Watch for swarms
"Termite season is upon us
and the First Coast area has
already had some swarming
activity," said John Cooksey,
chief operating officer and
enlomoluog'-. at McCall.


termitess are visible during
swarm season, when clouds of
flying termites can occur both
indoors and outdoors."
Cooksey said based on the
warmer and wetter winter,
termite swarm season is
expected be more active than
in recent years.
"If an infestation is found
within the house (whether
that's in the crawlspace or a
wall), it's best to get three
estimates and then evaluate
what each company is offer-
ing in terms of both the treat-
ment and guarantee," said
Cooksey.
Termites thrive in moist
conditions with plenty of
wood. The following tips can
help to minimize your risk for
a termite infestation:
Keep gutters free of leaves
and other debris. Downspouts
must drain freely and away
from the house, at a distance
of at least 3 feet.
Do not keep wooden
items close to the house. For
example, firewood should be
stored away from the home.
Wood mulch can also attract
termites to the home.
Because termites need
only the width of a piece of
paper to access the house,
make sure that all entry
points, like cracks in the
foundation or utility open-
ings, are sealed. You should
also caulk windows and
doors, favorite stomping
grounds for termites.


*As a rule of thumb, moni-
tor those areas of the home
that are chronically 'I!i', or
where wood comes in contact:
with the structure.
If you are con',iru-:irj a
new home, ask the builder
about pretreatment options.

Wal-Mart extension

faces NB Monday

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A request for a six-month permit exten-
sion by the owners of a property where Wal-
Mart has been proposed will be considered at
a Neptune Beach City Council workshop
meeting Monday.
Mayor Dick Brown said he is leaning
toward granting the request, but at least one
councilor is opposed.
Stephen Bullock, who represents
Lakeshore Village property owners, sent a let-
ter to the city earlier this week requesting an
extension of the final development order
while Lakeshore and Wal-Mart negotiate
over the next 30 days.
The national retailer announced in
January that it was pulling out of a lease
agreement with Lakeshore, which is now
asking the company to reconsider.
"I think there's more going on here than
meets the eye," said Vice Mayor Harriet
Pruette. "It makes it hard when we don't
know what we're dealing with and why."
According to Bullock's letter, the request
for the extension can be based on a "show-
ing of good faith."
But, Pruette said that over the course of a
year, no improvements have.been made to
the property.
"I'm willing to keep an open mind here,
but I haven't seen any effort to get this thing
going," she said. "All of us wanted to see
some closure and a year later we have noth-
ing."
Brown said that a great deal of work has
gone into the project so that additional time
is "reasonable." He suggested that a 60 or 90
day extension might be possible.
Monday's meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City
Hall, 116 First Street. No action can be
taken in a workshop meeting

Residents of a party-plagued
street in Jacksonville Beach are
asking for increased police
patrols to help curb the end-
less, late night disruptions.
Of the eight homes lining a
portion of 18th Street North,
Deb Naples said three houses
occupied by several college-age
tenants are a constant source of
tension for the surrounding
neighbors.
Over the last 18 months,
Naples said she has paid
approximately $7,000 out of
pocket to fix damages to her
property that, she says, was
caused by the raucous crowds.
"One house has kids barely
of legal age that are laying
drunk in the streets. There are
fights. We have had a shooting


inside of one of these houses,"
she said.
"People from several blocks
around have called police and
we have received minimal
help. We need to find some
sort of resolution because we
can't keep living like this."
Naples said she and her
neighbors are often afraid to go
outside because of fear of reper-
cussions. She said kids have'
come into her yard and side
swiped vehicles in the area
"because they are three sheets
to the wind."
"I want something done,"
she said.i
Mayor Fland Sharp said he
will discuss the issue with
Police Chief Bruce Thomason
to help find a solution.
Said Sharp, "We will see what
we can do to figure this out."

Collegians work for Habitat


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

A "Collegiate Challenge" has
been issued by Habitat for
Humanity, and six northern
schools are heading the Beaches
to finish two of a series of seven
homes being built directly
across Shangri-La from Mayport
Elementary School.
A contingent from the first of
the schools, the University of
Guelph in the Canadian
province of Ontario, arrived
Sunday morning. After a 22-
hour, straight-through drive in a
caravan of four vans, the 24
Guelph students went straight
to the beach, then got to work
Monday. The youngsters will be
pounding and sawing away on
Shangri-La until Friday.
Following Guelph and work-
ing for Habitat for Humanity of
the Jacksonville Beaches will be
Mount St. Mary's [Md.]
University the week of Feb. 25,
Waynesburg [Pa.] University


March 3; Youngstown [Ohio]
State University March 10 and
two Illinois schools, Quincy
University and the University of
Chicago, the week of March 25.
The various colleges are
joined each year by Ron
Hensell, a retired professor from
Mendocino Community
College in Ukiah, Calif., who
"flies out every year, spends a
month with us," said Caja Kelly,
volunteer coordinator for
Beaches Habitat. "He comes for
Collegiate Challenge, is here
until March 18, when he takes a
rental car back."
As to "Collegiate Challenge,"
Kelly said, "It's not a challenge
between the universities. It's a
challenge to all colleges and
universities to become more
socially involved and aware. It's
a challenge to the individuals
who come to see how much
they can get done in a week.
Because we expect a lot out of
these kids in six weeks.
"These two homes should be

that build homes for Habitat for Humanity of the Jacksonville
Beaches. "He flies out every year, spends a month with us," said
volunteer coordinator Caja Kelly.


about complete when they're
ready to go," said Kelly, who
finds places for the students to
stay and arranges lunches.
Guelph is one of Habitat's
most popular groups, she said.
"Our staff loves having this
university come down," she
said. "This is their sixth year,
and this is the biggest group
they've ever brought. They
drove a long way to get here,
and each kid pays $100 for the
week. So they pay to come.and
build on their spring break, and
they are giving back.
"They give back a huge
amount. I mean 24 people for
eight hours a day for a full week.
That's huge."
SBeaches Habitat was founded
in 1992 to eliminate substan-
dard and overcrowded housing
in the Beaches area. To date,
more than 172, homes have
been built.
"These students put in hun-
dreds of hours of hard work for
Habitat's Collegiate Challenge,"
said RalphMarcello, executive
director of Habitat for
Humanity of the Jacksonville
Beaches. "By the end of the
week, not only have the stu-
dents learned how to build a
house, they've also seen how
their actions can help improve
people's lives."
Guelph is one of two schools
participating that has a Habitat
for Humanity chapter on its
campus. The other is
Youngstown State. John Pegg, a
sophomore or second-year stu-
dent in biomedical sciences, is
president of the Guelph chapter.
"This year we have 24 stu-
dents in Jacksonville, about 40
in Louisiana and about a dozen
or so in El Salvador," said Pegg,
who lives in the small Ontario
town of Sutton. As to Collegiate
Challenge, Pegg said, "I think
it's more of a personal chal-
lenge. It's moving a little bit out
of your comfort zone and step-
ping up to take a leadership role
in the community. I think both
of those are very important
things."
Vicky Van Roie, a freshman or
first-year student majoring in
international development,
lives in Trenton, Ontario and
has been to Florida one other
time, when she was nine. She
did a Collegiate Challenge in
Pennsylvania when she was in
high school.
"I feel very energized, actual-
ly, doing it. .1 feel rewarded


because I'm helping somebody
or a whole family, in most cases.
It's really rewarding, personally,
for that reason," said Van Roie.
"To me, spring break building
houses didn't sound like fun
when I was in college, but these
kids, I really admire them for it,"
said Kelly, who grew up in
Rochester, N.Y. and has been on
staff at Habitat for five months.
"I just think that these guys, giv-
ing up their spring break to
drive 22 hours and build houses
for a week, is so admirable.
They're so socially aware and
conscious of the issues. And that
kind of awareness is just amaz-
ing to me to see from college
students."
Mayport Elementary School
custodian Teresa Hines will own
one of the two houses the
Guelph students are working
on, the seventh Habitat home
on the street, when it's done.

Letters to the editor:

Support for race was great to see


To the editor:
After eight months of train-
ing and preparing for the 26.2
with Donna The National
Marathon to Fight Breast
Cancer I felt confident this
event would exceed everyone's
expectations. The vision of a
successful, "elite", international
marathon had only one piece
necessary to fulfill its potential.
How would the local beach
communities respond?
Sunday morning, February
17, my responsibility was to
pace runners interested in fin-
ishing the marathon within a
time of 4:15 or better.- Words
cannot explain the emotions
that I felt racing through my
Beaches neighborhood streets
connected to runners, volun-
teers and spectators. Every turn,
every water station, every
stretch of road the runners were
met with SOOO MUCH encour-


agement and enthusiasm. The
group I led came from all across
the United States. I tried to put
myself in their place as they
experienced our incredible local
hospitality. On Sunday I ran
with a sense of place and deep
regard for everyone that took
time out of their morning to
selflessly cheer on thousands of
strangers past their front yards
and alongside their businesses.
I was overwhelmed by your
support on Sunday and all I can
say is thank you. The difference
you made in the hearts and
minds of ALL the participants
was monumental! Planning
and preparation for next year
has already begun and I can't
wait! I.guarantee runners from
all over the world feel the same
way.

Race was memorable experience


To the editor:
Thank You!
To my neighbors on Duval
Drive and the surrounding
beaches:
Hats off and THANKS for
making the Breast Cancer


Marathon Run a huge success.
Your support, water hoses, and
cheers made this a very memo-
rable experience.
Thanks again!

Thanks to all who back the band


To the editor:
A huge Thank-You to all that
have donated both personally
and as part of an organization
to the Fletcher High School
Band Trip to Washington, D.C.
We are almost there with the
fundraising effort.
After reading the article in
The Leader on February 20, I
felt the need to respond. It has
been said many times that this
is "a once in a lifetime trip."
What does that mean? As a
band parent for many years
and a member of the FHS Band
Booster Board I would like to
explain why this is not "just a
band trip". As has been men-
tioned, the band works very
hard all year long. They attend
summer band camp for 2-3
weeks, 5 days a week, in the
hot sun, to prepare for the
upcoming year. This is only
the beginning. They are
required to perform at all of
the football games, perform-
ances and competitions. This
requires training and disci-
pline. A typical band student
---knows that his/her life is
monopolized by the time it


takes to build a successful pro-
gram and they love it. As was
mentioned in the article, they
are a family.
This trip to Washington D.C
is a reward of sorts for their
dedication and time. But mbst
importantly, it will be an
event in their life that they
may never have again. Every
year there is a band trip. The
student's generally pay for
their own trip, perhaps per-
form one or two times and
have a great time. This trip
will require training. They are
required to march in a parade
with an expected 400,000 peo-
ple in 110 degree heat due to
the crowds. During the week
they are there, they are partic-
ipating with other bands in
guided educational tours.
What a fabulous way to show
these students what it means
to be part of a specially chosen
few and what it. means to
march in a National
Independence Day Parade.
SO THANK YOU AGAIN.

Club investors need some answers


To the editor.
The purpose of this email is to
echo the sentiments of previous
communications regarding the
exorbitant price increase in
dues [at the Cabana Club].
If we are expected to pay for
renovations as pitched by man-
agement, I'd like to see a break-
down 'of costs for contractor
services and new items...furni-
ture etc... We have obviously
become investors in the build-
ing of the property and I believe
it's important to see a break-
down as I would with anything


I'm purchasing. Who participat-
ed in the renovation bidding
process? Who performed the
financial analysis to determine
the increase? An 80 percent
increase is obnoxious. How
much is the Marriott absorbing?
What is the mission statement
of the Sawgrass Marriott? What
is the Vision? Shouldn't the
dues be drastically reduced next
year after the renovations? A
timely response to these queries
would be greatly appreciated.

More letters to the editor:


Refreshing to hear that so many young

people will represent the Beaches well


To the editor:
Thank you to The Beaches
Leader and Liza Mitchell for
their coverage of our fundrais-
ing efforts on the road to
Washington, D.C. With the
pledge from the Jacksonville
Beach City Council, we are one
step closer to our goal of
$50,000. However, in reading
the article "JB antes up for
Fletcher Band Trip" in the
February 20edition, there are a
couple of misconceptions that
need to be corrected.
First, none of the chaperones
are accompanying the band
students at a reduced price or
free of charge. Each chaperone
has paid the same out-of-
pocket financial contribution
as the students have paid of
$110. Further, each of these
chaperones has volunteered
countless hours during Friday
night football in the stands
with the students; in the con-
cession stands at home games;
during marching competitions
riding buses that leave on a
Saturday morning at 8:00 am
(after. being in the concession
stand until 1l:00pm the night
before) and not arriving home
until early Sunday morning;
selling Krispy Kreme donuts at
6:30am before school starts to
raise money; marching parade
routes during Homecoming
and Opening of the Beaches
parades and being there during
any other activity at which
one of the FHS band ensembles
may appear. Having said this,
none of this volunteer time
even comes close to the
amount of time that our band
students and Jonathan Maerkl,
band director, commit towards
making the Fletcher High
School Band the superior pro-


gram that it is today. A pro-
gram that was deemed worthy
of being chosen as the official
State of Florida representative
at the National Independence
Day Parade after being nomi-
nated by Mayor John Peyton.
While it is true that the band
has received 4 complimentary
chaperone trips as part of the
tour package, the savings asso-
ciated with these "free" trips
has been spread among all of
the students and chaperones
attending the parade. Each
person traveling to
Washington, DC has the same
cost per trip. Should our
fundraising goal not be
reached, each attendee
whether a student or a chaper-
one will be responsible for pay-
ing the difference in order to
be able to attend.
Unfortunately, this may mean
that some students who can-
not afford to pay any extra will
be left out of the trip if this
indeed becomes the case. The
Band Boosters Association .is
working extremely hard to
make this sure that this does
not happen.
Second, Councilman
Knight's concerns of funding
students who live outside the
Beaches city limits are not
valid. Funding has been
requested from all of the cities
in which our students reside.
Neptune Beach and
Jacksonville Beach have
already responded positively.
Atlantic Beach and the City of
Jacksonville (via the Children's
Commission) have been
approached and we fully
expect funds -from these cities
to be forthcoming. In addi-
tion, the athletic department
and the PTSA of Fletcher High


School have already made
pledges of funds towards the
cost of getting our band to
D.C. The Holiday
Extravaganza held in
December, 2007 with perform-
ances by the entire fine arts
department of Fletcher benefit-
ted the band's fundraising
efforts. The Fletcher High
School Marching Senator Band
is representing not only the
three Beaches Communities
and Jacksonville, but also all
FHS students, current and
alumni, at the National
Independence Day parade.
Isn't it only fair that all share
in the cost of this opportunity?
In today's times of news
about students who are getting
into trouble or failing school,
isn't it refreshing to hear about
a group of young people who
are doing something good?
Our students are spending
hours in rehearsals in addition
to keeping up with their
schoolwork to, represent them-
selves arid out community in a'
positive manner. As Jean Furst
so eloquently put it at the
meeting on Monday night, the
FHS band students will be in
Washington, D.C. for you.
Will you be there for them?

Embrace the race -it made us all proud


To the.editor:
The first marathon to fight.
breast cancer at the Beaches last
weekend was well organized by
almost any standard that run-
ners consider important. The
race expo had countless deals
on shoes and running gear, the
course was relatively flat and
shady and there were plenty of
water stops and porta-johns
along the course. A hearty well-
done to Donna Deegan, the
Special Events staff from the
City of Jacksonville, and all the
other race organizers.
However, the hot conditions
may have left some of our
northern visitors with bad
memories except for one impor-
tant factor; community sup-
port. The turnout and enthusi-
asm of the people along the
course was absolutely phenom-
enal! People were ringing cow
bells and yelling encourage-


ment for almost the entire dis-
tance, particularly in Atlantic
Beach. There were more "unof-
ficial" water stops than official
ones. There was more sidewalk
chalk proclaiming "go Mom" or
"you rock" then most of us had
time to read. Little kids were
hoping the next runner would
take the orange slice from their
hand. Delayed drivers parked
their cars, got out and cheered
along with everyone else.
Dozens of people with hoses
offered to shower overheated
runners (especially appreciated
on a hot day), and so on.
Sure, many may have
embraced the noble cause of
fighting breast cancer more
than they did the runners them-
selves. It would be impossible
for any of us "locals" to have
watched DonnA Deegan's coura-
geous fight against cancer in
recent years without wanting to


help. However, the runners felt
like the hoie team running
onto the field at a college foot-
ball game.
We often brag about how
great it is to live at the beach.
How much of that is normal
hometown pride versus having
something really special? After
running a lot of other
marathons in places like
Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Hartford,
Boston, Houston, Chicago and
Washington DC, I can assure
you that the level of support
this last weekend went way
beyond what any runner could
hope for, especially for a first
time event. You really did
"Embrace the Race". I have
never been more proud to live
at the beaches. Thanks to all
who came out.

Florida has never learned to live within a budget


To the editor:
My entire life my parents
taught me to manage my
money properly. They showed
me how to live within a budget
and how to avoid spending
money on every little trinket
that I wanted. Shouldn't our
state and local governments
have to live up to the same
ethic?
They apparently haven't
been as Florida taxes are cur-
rently at an all time high! They
spend so much money and
when we are given a chance to
lower our taxes the bureaucrats
just. find somewhere else to


raise them. Like me, you might
be asking yourself, how can we
put a stop to this?
Currently the TBRC, the
Taxation and Budget Reform
Committee, is meeting as they
do every 20 years, with the
ability to .put any issue they
want and put it on the ballot.
One of the issues they are con-
sidering is a Taxpayer
Protection Amendment. This
would limit the expansion of
state and local government
spending by population
growth and inflation. On top
of that, if the government
wanted to raise extra money


for a pet project WE THE PEO-
PLE have to give approval at
the ballot box. When a similar
amendment was putin place in
Colorado they saw a huge
increase in jobs and saw eco-
nomic development skyrocket
like never before!
If this amendment is put on
the 2008 ballot, we must vote
yes! Who wouldn't want take
this golden opportunity to
teach our government fiscal
responsibility as our parents
lovingly did for us.

City owes


developer

absolutely

nothing


To the editor:
Now that Wal-Mart has
said they're dropping their
plans to build a Super Center
in NB, Lakeshore's Attorney
Steven C. Bullock, asks
Mayor Brown for a "Showing
of Good Faith" by granting
his client a 6 month exten-
sion of the Final
Development Order issued
in the Settlement Agreement
that the city was pretty
much forced to accept.
Mr. Bullock points out in
his letter that Lakeshore "has
requested' Wal-Mart to
rescind its Notice of
Termination on various legal
grounds" and that hopefully
they can come to terms for a
final resolution in 30 days.
He also contends "that it
would be in the best interest
of all parties" and that "there
would be no prejudice nor
harm to the city in granting
the extension".
Talk about audacity, this is
the same Mr. Bullock who in
July of 2006 threatened to
sue the city for 50 million
dollars if they didn't get their
way. His threat came after
Wal-Mart's attorney Karl
Sanders made a similar
threat in June. -Now, almost
two years later after waltzing
NB around the floor, the big
S',and little bullies aire 'a it.
again and I have to wonder'
just whose best interest is at
stake and what's really going
on.
Was Iakeshore so naive
they entered into an agree-
ment with Wal-Mart that
gave them no financial relief
if Wal-Mart broke the deal?
Are they both running some
contentious game at the
expense and wasted time of
our city, solely for their own
self interest and betterment?
Perhaps Lakeshore wants the
delay so they can find some
other tenant who may or
may not want to provide the
same building design, plans,
specifications and conces-
sions the city agreed to with
Wal-Mart. Or, could they be
trying to sell the building to
Wal-Mart or some other enti-
ty and increase the sale value
by having a Free
Development Ordered card
attached.
Who knows, but it is easy
to see there are too many
unanswered questions
involved in this fiasco to
dance to their tune when the
city is under no legal obliga-
tion to bend over for these
bullies. Hopefully council
will say no even though
some may say they are being
unfair to business and that
we desperately need the tax
revenue.
Those inclined to do so
need to realize NB's sales tax
income is the same whether
they spend their money
across the ditch or spend it
here and the $23,454.00
property tax revenue from
Lakeshore's building is the
same whether it is occupied
or empty. Doubling that
property's value would only
generate about $3.35 a year
Sfor each of our 7000 resi-
dents and I don't think that
would increase our quality of
life very much.
Council should hold the
line on this issue and then
reasonably expect the
Lakeshore folks in the future
to come up with visually
attractive design, housing
businesses that provide
goods and services we need
and desire, without rescind-


ing our 60,000 sq ft ordi-
nance because some mer-
chant wants to occupy more
space than our code now
allows. We really don't need
to be the door mat of devel-
opers or lawyers to encour-
age new businesses!

Homeowners seek a PUD change


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Residents of a south
Jacksonville Beach subdivision
are asking city planners to
amend the development restric-
tions to allow an addition to
their property that is not cur-
rently permitted.
The Planned Unit
Development (PUD) agreement
for the South Beach Village sub-
division at the comer of St.
Augustine Boulevard and 3rd
Street South does not include
any provisions that would let
property owners apply for vari-
ances to exceed lot coverage'or
alter setback requirements.
John and Sheron Anderson,
who live in South Beach Village,
are seeking an amendment to
the PUD to address a wooden
deck constructed without a
building permit in the required
five-foot sideyard setback on
their property.
If the amendment is
approved by the Planning
Commission, the couple could
them proceed with the variance
request. A variance granted by
the city's Board of Adjustment
will allow them to retroactively
apply for a building permit.
David Klarer, director of the
South Beach Village
Homeowner's Association, said
the architectural review com-
mittee has reviewed the addi-
tion and approved the modifi-
cation.


The SBVHOA also authorized
the Andersons to seek an
amendment to the PUD agree-
ment.
The Andersons contend that
they never received a copy of
the homeowner's regulations or
the original PUD agreement.
Following a complaint from a
neighbor regarding the unper-
mitted structure, the city's
Planning and Development
Department issued a formal let-
ter ordering the Andersons to
obtain a variance or remove the
deck.
In a letter to Klamer seeking
support for their plans to
amend the PUD and seek a vari-
ance, the Andersons said the
deck was constructed on the
south side of the yard which, he
said, was made unsafe for foot
traffic by poor drainage.
"We never would have pur-
chased this property with the
unsafe contour and lack of
usability of what amounts ot
half of our outside yard," the
Andersons said in the letter.
"We firmly believe this is a
hardship situation that
demands logical and reasonable
consideration."
Senior Planner Bill Mann said
the permitted density in the
South Beach Village develop-
ment includes reduced setbacks
and 60 percent allowable lot
coverage as opposed to the stan-
dard 35 percent in the sur-
rounding residential districts.
"The minimum yard areas


around many of these homes
also serve as the required stor-
age volume and collection sys-
tem for the "first flush" of
storm water runoff from rain
events," Mann said, noting that
the Public Works Department
must also approve the deck as
part of the building permitting
process.
Marin said approval of this
amendment is not expected to
compromise the overall PUD
standards adopted for South
Beach Village.
SMann said if the Andersons
are not successful in obtaining a
variance, the deck must be
removed.

Senators pound Panthers in baseball


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

It might not have been the
catch that won a state cham-
pionship, but Fletcher High
head baseball coach Kevin
Brown sounded equally excit-
ed about it.
Brown was more than
thrilled about the over-the-
shoulder catch
centerfielder
Tanner Gregg
made in the top
of the sixth
inning, saving
the Senators
from giving up
a possible run
en route a
blowout 11-1
victory over
Beaches rival Nease High.
"Was that an unbelievable
catch?" Brown said following
the game. "Tanner Gregg, just
an unbelievable catch. He
does that all the time."
Fletcher (4-0) easily handled
Nease (1-3) Tuesday night in a
game that was rescheduled
from Monday afternoon due
to weather.
The Senators broke open a


scoreless game with a four-run
second inning, led by Sean
Brown's two-run triple.
Brown, whose hit scored
Scott Sitz and James Dillon,
came home on a single from
Houston Brown, who would
go on to score on a Ryan
Mahoney single.
"We hit the ball good
tonight," Kevin Brown said.
"We were hit-

It's just situa-
tional hitting.
"The entire
Bottom of the
lineup did
great. Everyone
got hits, they all put the ball

out if it."
The Panthers took advan-
tage of Fletcher's pitching
woes, first turning things
around in the fifth inning
when Ryan Martin scored on
Justin McKenna's single, giv-
ing Nease its first run of the
night.
Fletcher got that run back


in the bottom of the inning
when Sitz hit a double that
sent Trevor Adeeb home.
With Fletcher leading 5-1,
the Panthers looked to stage a
comeback. Brett Russi opened
the sixth inning with a single
and advanced to second when
Tyler Barlow was walked.
Jared MacNaught then
ripped a long fly ball to deep
centerfield, where Gregg
tracked it down and made the
spectacular catch and throw,
doubling up Russi at second
base for the final out of the
inning.
The Senators opened the
bottom of the sixth hitting
everything Nease pitcher Will
Haga threw. Sean Brown
opened the inning with a sin-
gle and was followed by
Houston Brown and Gregg, to
load the bases.
Johnny Williams' two-run
single made it 7-1 with no
outs. Mahoney followed with
another single, sending home
Gregg. Adeeb ripped a two-
run double to the outfield,
bringing the score to 10-1
while Nease had still failed to
record an out.

Ospreys to face some of nation's top teams


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Head coach Dusty Rhodes knows his
University of North Florida baseball program
team is still a few years away from being eligible
for NCAA Division I postseason play.
So Rhodes, UNF's first and only yard boss since
the program's inception in 1988, has turned a
negative into a positive by scheduling Super
Regional-caliber opponents this season.
On tap this season are rematches with peren-
nial in-state powers Miami (May 13), Florida
(April 2, 8 and 9) and Florida State (April 16)
along with first-time meetings against 2007
World Series participants North Carolina (May 6-
7) and Mississippi State (today though Sunday).
"Because we can't go to the postseason [until
2010], we promised our guys that we would play
the best teams in the country," Rhodes said this
week from Harmon Stadium.
"We wanted to play all the Division I teams in
the state of Florida and we're close to that."
Besides the big three, UNF will take on South
Florida, Central Florida and Florida
International: It also will renew acquaintances
with Atlantic Sun Conference foes Stetson and
Jacksonville universities.
The Ospreys (24-32 in 2007) open their 21st
season on the diamond this weekend by hosting
a tripleheader with Mississippi State (38-22 in
2007).
The teams square off today at 5 p.m. at the
Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, before facing
each other at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at UNF
It will be the first meeting between the two
clubs, but not the first time Rhodes and Bulldogs
coach Ron Polk have exchanged handshakes.
"I've known Ron Polk for over 30 years," said
Rhodes, who was a player and an assistant coach
at Florida Southern College in the early 1970s
when Polk was an assistant coach at Miami-Dade

Former Nease star Andy Warren will play first.
and third for the UNF Ospreys this season.
South Community College.
Rhodes said he and Polk have talked about
playing each other for years and finally got it
done.
The Ospreys hope to return the favor next sea-
son by traveling to Starkville, Miss.
"We couldn't schedule [UNF] when it was in
Division II," said Polk in a phone interview this
week.


"I'm anxious to see Dusty's ball park."
Polk is in his second stint as the Bulldogs skip-
per and 29th overall. He led MSU to a No. 8 final
ranking last season and has guided three differ-
ent schools to the College World Series.
Rhodes has led the Ospreys to World Series
berths at the NAIA and NCAA D-II levels. The
Ospreys were the D-II runners-up in 2005.
UNF is in the third season of a four-year reclas-
sification period and is not eligible to earn a
berth in its conference tournament until 2010.
The winner of the A-Sun tourney earns an
automatic berth to the NCAA regionals.
UNF finished second in the A-Sun regular-sea-
son standings in 2006 and sixth overall last sea-
son.
In the absence of postseason play, Rhodes
intends to do what he has always done: Put the
best product he can on the field and let the
record speak for itself.
"We've kind of been a diamond in the rough,"
said Rhodes, who has more than 1,100 wins in 20
years at UNF .
"People couldn't take us lightly, no matter
what level we were."
"I know they are aggressive and well-coached,"
said Polk, the legendary skipper of a storied
Bulldogs program that dates to 1892 and boasts
more than 5,500 season ticket holders this season.
"We've got all our pitching back, but we lost a
lot of key players off that World Series team. So,
we're a young ball club in that regard."
Rhodes returns a young, but battle-tested team
that will also rely on pitching depth. The Ospreys
had 14 freshmen last season and all will see con-
siderable playing time this year.
"We could start a whole sophomore team if we
had to," said Rhodes, who returns three players
who were named to the A-Sun All-Freshmen
team.
The Beaches area will be well represented in
the lineup in the form of senior Andy Warren


and freshman Sam Perry.
Warren, a 2002 Nease High graduate, will play
first and third, while Perry, a 2007 Fletcher High
alum, will back up senior Chad Knight at short-
stop.
"Andy struggled with the bat last season, but
he's been hitting the ball now," said Rhodes.
"And Perry is better than we thought he was.
He'll be like those freshmen last year. He'll play a
lot until we can move him into a starting posi-
tion."
Former Fletcher High and FCCJ transfer David
Eldredge has been redshirted this season.
Former Providence star Travis Martin is back
for his senior season and may be the most versa-
tile player in Osprey baseball history.
Martin, UNF's designated hitter with a .302
career average, can pitch, play first base and even
sub in outfield if need be.
"The only thing he can't do is run real well,"
said Rhodes about Martin, who was 2-3 on the
mound last season.
"He's in the best playing shape that I've ever
seen him. He can pitch and still DH, or bat and
still pitch in relief."
Last year, UNF took its lumps early, then fin-
ished strong down the stretch with road victories
against Miami and Florida and a best-of-three
series triumph over eventual A-Sun tournament
champion and regional-qualifier JU.
Polk's Bulldogs bounced back from an 0-2 fin-
ish in the SEC tourney to reach Omaha as an
NCAA at-large team.
He and Rhodes both agree that it's all about
how you play at the end of the season, not at the
beginning.
"This. league will wear you out," said Polk
about the SEC.
"You have to make a run at the end."
Added Rhodes: "We were overmatched early,
but by the end of last season we were playing
with anybody."

Science seeks to harness energy of human movement


For some time, I have won-
dered about a way to har-
vest the energy expended
at a health club. Just picture
your mind when you walk
into the YMCA all those
people powering the bicycles,
the elliptical trainers, and
pushing and pulling the
Nautilus equipment.
That is a lot of energy that
could be used to power the tel-
evisions or even the lights. The
Y could even somehow store
the energy, and then donate it
back to the electric company
to be passed onto someone
who is struggling to pay their
bill.
Now, while I may be able to
dream up the idea, I have no
idea how to actually make it
work. If you are able to come
up with a way to make.that
happen, let me know.
As you will read, others are
already working on other ways
to harvest the energy of our

motion.

Walk and Talk
If you could power your cell
phone simply by wearing a
special knee brace, would you?
Researchers from the
University of Pittsburgh and
the University of Michigan


have come up with just such a
device. The brace was designed
to assist an injured person
with walking, but the develop-
ers quickly realized that it had
other applications.
As the braced knee moves
back and forth, energy is creat-
ed and the brace transfers it
into a generator which can
then be attached to an elec-
tronic device. Researchers
showed that simply walking
for one minute could power a
phone for ten minutes.

Wear Your Power Shirt
Researchers from Emory
University and Georgia Tech
are also at work developing
"power shirt" able to generate
electricity to power small elec-
tronic devices for soldiers in
the field, hikers and others
whose physical motion could
be harnessed and converted to
electrical energy.
This month's journal Nature
details how pairs of textile


fibers covered with zinc oxide
nanowires generate electrical
current when they are .
mechanically deformed, a phe-
nomenon known as the piezo-
electric effect.
Harvesting
this electrical -Rsercer
current from k
many of these
fiber pairs shr -
woven into a -ie mMtP
shirt or jacket
could allow -ele i .i
your body s e sij
movement to hik S 1
power a range
of portable ps al
electronic Ih s g
devices.
Researchers te ci
also noted
how the fibers
could also be woven into cur-
tains, tents or other structures
to capture energy from wind
motion, sound vibration or
other mechanical energy.
"The fiber-based nanogener-


=the


ator would be a simple and
economical way to harvest
energy from physical move-
ment," said Zhong Lin Wang,
a Regents professor in the
School of
Materials
S o wScience and
Sr Engineering
at the Georgia
vene te s Institute of
brea col c Technology.
"If we can
vic- cfr cmbine
e femany of
these fibers in
double or
on col d triple layers
A .onver t in clothing,
we could pro-
-g vide a flexi-
ble, foldable
and wearable
power source that, for exam-
ple, would allow people to
generate their own electrical
current while walking."
Even the simple act of
breathing could create energy

Plantation. Phelan, 17, came
back from two strokes down to
claim his first 1IT title. Phelan
made two birdies in the first
round to card a 1-under par 71
and trailed Carson Weinand by
two. "I was hitting my irons real-
ly well," said Phelan. "I only
missed four greens in the first
round and made all my par
putts." In the final round, Phelan
missed only three greens to
record a 73 and win by two
strokes.
"This win helps my confidence
a lot," said Phelan. "I have had a
lot of top five finishes and I feel
like I keep improving."

Scott takes BFAS on road today


FROM STAFF
John Scott, organist and
director of the renowned
choir of men and boys in
New York City, gives his first
Beaches Fine Arts Series
(BFAS) concert at 7:30 p.m.
today.
The concert is being held
at St. John's Episcopal
Cathedral, 256 E. Church St.,
Jacksonville, where the organ
has recently undergone an
upgrade, said Kathy Wallis,
executive director of the
Beaches Fine Arts Series.
"The cathedral organ has
been recently restored and
enlarged," Wallis said in a
telephone interview this
week.
Scott, 51, "one of the fore-
most organists in the world,"
Wallis said, is organist and
director of music at Saint
Thomas Church on Fifth
Avenue in New York City.
Before moving to New York
in 2004, he spent 26 years at
St. Paul's Cathedral in
London, where he began as

Organist John Scott
assistant organist and soon
became sub-organist.
In 1990 Scott succeeded Dr


Christopher Dearnley as
organist and music director,
training and directing the
choir and overseeing the
development of the cathe-
dral's music program.
Under his direction, the St
Paul's Cathedral Choir
toured extensively in Europe,
Japan, and North and South
America, made many widely
acclaimed recordings,
worked with a number of dis-
tinguished orchestras and
ensembles and gave world
premieres of works commis-
sioned especially for them.
Scott's career as a recitalist
has taken him to five conti-
nents. His many recordings
include the organ sonatas of
Elgar, organ music by
William Mathias, the com-
plete organ works of Durufl6
and Mendelssohn, as well as
two discs of music by Dupr6.
Scott's performance this
evening, which is free, will
include works by Handel,
Bach, Mathias and Grainger.
Doors open at at 6:45 p.m.,
and seating is on a first-


come, first-served basis.
Scott's concert is one of
two in the fine arts series
that will be held in
Jacksonville this season,
Wallis said.
The normal venue is St.
Paul's By the Sea Episcopal
Church in Jacksonville
Beach, but it was unclear at
the time she booked Scott
whether St. Paul's organ
would be out of service,
Wallis said.
The organ at St. Paul's is
scheduled to have its reeds
redone, she said.
Next month, BFAS brings a
new performer to the series,
Wallis said Tomaseen
Foley, a native Irish story-
teller whose performance
also includes a "world-cham-
pion Irish dancer," a singer
and some musical instru-
ments, she said.
The concert is set for 7:30
p.m. Friday, March 14 at St.
Paul's in Jacksonville Beach.
Photographer Amandine
Benomar is the visual artist
for today's performance.


Movie tie-in

books boost

readership

by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Movie tie-in books may
seem like a cheap and shame-
less way to repackage a one-
time best seller, but they
undoubtedly spark new copy
sales and boost readership,
industry analysts say.
Take, for instance, "No
Country For Old Men"
(Vintage Books, $14.)
The 2005 best seller by
Pulitzer Prize-winning author
Cormac McCarthy is the basis
for an Oscar-nominated film
of the same name.
Sales of the dark crime
novel, adapted for the screen
by Ethan and Joel Coen, have
spiked in recent months, due
in large part to its movie tie-
in edition, which features a
glossy still from the film on
its jacket cover.
McCarthy, once dubbed the
"Shakespeare of the West,"
has -been adapted for the
screen before ("All the Pretty
Horses").
Much of the clipped dia-
logue in his book made its
way to the screen, including
the film's signature phrase,
"It's a mess, ain't it sheriff? If
it ain't it'll do til a mess gets
here."
But there are interesting
subtexts in the book that the
Coens couldn't cook down
into a tight screenplay, such
as the backstory of disillu-
sioned Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
(Tommy Lee Jones), a Bronze
Star recipient in World War II
with a wartime secret.
Welder-turned-thief
Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin),
who served two tours of duty
in Vietnam as an Army sniper,
has a- touching, albeit brief,
relationship with a teenage
runaway.
Bell has an equally moving
encounter with Moss's father
at book's end.
And Bell's relationship with
his own father, hinted at in
the film's final scene, can
only be fully understood -
and appreciated by reading
McCarthy's subtle prose.
"My daddy always told me
to just do the best you knew
how and tell the truth," the
character says in the book.
"He said there was nothing
to set a man's mind at ease
like wakin up in the morning
and not having to decide who
you are.
Truth is a major theme in
"No Country for Old Men,
and "you can't corrupt it,"
the book says, "any more
than you can salt salt."

Name:Bran takes shape


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Brandon Flores knows a
thing or two about marketing.
As a former solo artist per-
forming as Name:Bran, he has
an innate understanding that
image as everything
The 26-year-old rapper and
musician developed a solid
reputation as a skilled rapper, a
born lyricist and an overall
nice guy that blurred the edges
of the typical hip hop scene.
Name:Bran is still distinctly
Flores with an full band sound
delivered by guitarist Justin
Watson, drummer Brett Livsey
and DJ Import.


The band with artists Shawn
Fisher, Robin Banks, Always
Autumn and Bury Me Standing
will perform a benefit concert
for the I.M. Sulzbacher Center
for the,Homeless Friday, Feb.
29, at Freebird Live, 200 1st
Street N., Jacksonville Beach.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
Admission is $10 and all pro-
ceeds will go directly to the
center to help the homeless.
It was after a benefit last
November at the University of
North Florida that the idea of
an expanded band began to
take shape.
"I have always been a rapper
but I listened to lots of differ-
ent music," Flores said in an


interview Wednesday. "I was
having issues with rap because
there are so many boundaries.
It is so limiting. This gives us
an opportunity to broaden
what hip hop is."
Flores was rapping freestyle
with the acoustic backing of
other musicians that also
played the bill. The sound eas-
ily and effortlessly became the
framework of the rock-rap style
that continues to evolve.
Watson and Livsey quickly
signed on after being intro-
duced to Flores. They recog-
nized his talents and were

Band: Performs Feb. 29 at Freebird Live benefit


Cont. from B-1
eager to embark on a shared
venture under the umbrella of
his established skills.
"This is a new beginning but
we weren't going to make him
start from scratch. He had
established himself enough,"
Livsey said. "People appreciate
Brandon. he is familiar to a lot
of people. We didn't want
them to overlook us."
Flores is quick to defend his
choice to branch out. The
approach is different but his
lyrics and message are still the
same positive flow he devel-
oped as a solo artist.
"We have definitely main-
tained the rap aspects," he
said. "Nothing has changed in
how the lyrics are constructed.
It has more of a rock feel but in
the same breath with all of the
elements of hip hop."


Watson said the creative
process is equal parts play-
ground and production. Out of
-a three-hour session, maybe 45
minutes is devoted to making
music but the other two, hours'
and 15 minutes are not spent
in vain.
S 'We just start messing
around and all of a sudden we
will hear something and be
like 'let's go with that,"
Watson said. "Brandon will say
"oh, I already have, lyrics
down.' That's how it works."
With Mikhail Vlasov spin-
ning under the name DJ
Import, Name-Bran is taking
off running. The band is fea-
tured on the soundtrack of a
documentary film with the
original title track "Born to
Run."
The song is available on the
band's MySpace page at


www.myspace.com/name:bran
and at
www.borntorunfilm.com.
Flores is eager to prove him-
self as a capable and talented
artist but the band is also selec-
tive about when and where
they will play.
"We don't jump on every
bandwagon," Flores said, not-
ing that he took the time to
research the Sulzbacher Center
before he agreed to sign on.
Band manager Adrian
Semerene suggested the
Sulzbacher center after touring
the facility as part of a high
school Young Leaders of
Jacksonville program,
"It was really impressive," he
said. "When we were trying to
decide who do do a concert for,
it kept coming back to me. It
just made sense. Every dime
will go to them."


The benefit proves to be as a
diverse an event as Name:Bran
themselves.
"It is really different. Every
band [on the bill] is complete-
ly different," Semerene said.
"There is a little something for
everyone."
Name:Bran is a unique group
of artists committed to chang-
ing the landscape of hip hop
and giving back to a communi-
ty that has given them so'
much.
"We practice in my garage in
Dolphin Cove and my neigh-
bors don't call the cops," said
Flores of the Ponte Vedra digs
he shares with his wife.
Said Semerene, "When they
do show up, they are great.
They say just tone it down,
don't turn it off."

COULD YOUR CHILD BE AT RISK
Your child may have 20120 eyesight
but 0/0 vision. The difference is critical.
Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see.
Vision is the ability to identify, interpret,
comprehend, and act on what is seen,
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most eye care professionals
measure eyesight. They do not include
the kinds of testing that can find visually
.' '" -: related learning problems.
Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat
vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
Unable to sit still; cannot stay on task for any
length of time,
SVery clumsy; p 'or eye-hand coordination.
Does written work very slowly; often fails to
conlplete a task.
lHas difficulty copying visual material:
constantly looks up and down.
Moves entire head instead of eyes when
readitte,
Reversals for example confusing the words
"was and saw'" or letters "h an( d".
Is disorganized and frustrated when studying
visual infonnation.
Makes frequent, "careless" errmors
If your son or daughter, age 7-18, has one or more of these behaviors, call
246-1952 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems.
It coutl be the most important phone call you will make during his/her school years.

Unleashed:
Vicki adopted Buddy from the Humane Society 4 years ago. He
was missing a leg and faced a very uncertain future. For 4
years he would have play dates with Vicki's fiance's Golden
Retriever, Harper, and Jack Russell, Tater. Buddy and Tater love
to "rassle" and run through the house, and Harper simply toler-
ates both of them. Since moving in together, Harper and Tater
have taught Buddy to howl. They all three sit at the window and
howl at whoever walks by. The photo above won Buddy a spot in
the Humane Society's 2008 Furry Face Calendar.

Spare Tire.

Conveniently tucked away inside all four tires.


BMW 90b.
Ua


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

tured at the February 23 Opening Lynch's most recent

of Jesus (above) in his studio. The pieces were assem-
bled on-site in Monroe, Ohio, next to Interstate-75. Meyer

treatments for homes and businesses. He will be joined

Pocket Full of Change


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Beaches resident Cheryle
Touchton has made Pocket Full
of Change Ministry her life's
work for the past seven years.
In 2001, Touchton lost her
high level position with
Pathtec Software Solutions
when the technology business
suffered a downturn.
With her world "turned
upside down," Touchton lis-
tened to her inner desire to
become a missionary, she said
in a telephone interveiw.
For several months every
year since 2001, Touchton has
traveled as a missionary in her
conversion van on Pocket Full
of Quarters Tours. ,
Her travels have brought her
to all 50 states offering what
she calls the "5 E's; evangeliza-
tion, exhortation, education,
exorcism, and encourage-


Cheryle Touchton
ment."
"Strangers open up to
strangers....God puts me in the
right place at the right time,"
- she said.
In these "incredible encoun-
ters" Touchton listens to peo-
ple talk about their lives.
For many people, "it truly
surprises us when something
goes wrong.
"Pocket Full is a metaphor
for being prepared for life.....
"Quarters are a symbol of God's


free grace."
It is through God's help, she
said, that she has been able to
"say or do the right thing" in
response to what people tell
her.
Touchton is, the author of
two books, "Pocket Full of
Quarters 5 Steps to Loving
God" and "Pocket Full of
Christmas Having a Purpose
Filled Advent."
In 2006, she received the
Best Devotional Writer Award
for the Florida Writer's
Conference.
In addition to their home in
Jacksonville Beach, Touchton
and her husband, Bob, have a
home in Arizona. She is a
Jacksonville native and a grad-
uate of the University of
Florida and Jacksonville
University.
Information about Pocket
Full of Change Ministry is
available at www.pocket-
fullofquarters.com.
