AB loses state grant to buy Buckman land

After state says it already owns most of the conservation tract


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A state grant to help Atlantic Beach
acquire marshland has expired due to
a legal dispute in which the state
claims it already owns most of the
land.
The city of Atlantic Beach received a
grant from the Florida Communities
Trust (FCT) to use towards the pur-
chase of approximately 350 acres of
marshland, known as the Buckman-
Pritchard Trust, on the west side of the
city for public use.
But state representatives claim title
to all but 77 acres of the land, accord-
ing to City Manager Jim Hanson.
The dispute over property ownership


dates back to the early 1900s when the
state gave land away to start the rail-
road system, Hanson said.
"It's a complicated legal issue...It
could take years [to resolve who owns
the land]," he said, adding the issue is
between the state and the Buckman-
Pritchard Trust and the city will not be
involved in the ownership dispute.
Per state regulations, the FCT had
two appraisals completed for the prop-
erty which came in "substantially
under the amounts originally estimat-
ed when the grant agreement was pre-
pared," according to Hanson.
"The appraised values came in at
$140,000 to $525,000 depending on
how much land is included," Hanson


said.
But, the FCT whose original grant
was for approximately $1.8 million -
would only support an offer based on
the acquisition of 77 acres.
"The state also told the city it can't
buy land that they think they already
own," Hanson said.
The city has designated $605,000
towards the purchase and has been in
negotiations with the owners, but the
differences in value were too great to
reach an agreement.
The city had until Feb. 29 to inform
the FCT if an agreement had been
reached.
The grant funds will be re-allocated
to other land acquisition projects

Drive to


send FHS


band to D.C.


gains tempo

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Beaches civic groups are banding
together to ensure that the Fletcher High
School marching band will be able to.par-
ticipate in this year's Independence Day
Parade in Washington D.C.
The Beaches Women's Club Wednesday
presented a $1,000 check to the band's
fundraisers to help cover the travel
expenses. ;
Angie's Subs in Jacksonville Beach also
raised money for the band Wednesday
with a portion of the day's sales going
toward the trip.
Next week, Harry's Seafood Bar and
Grille at 1018 3rd Street North in
Jacksonville Beach has committed to
donating a portion of their sales from
March 10 through March 14 to the
Marching Senators.
The band will perform from 6 to 8 p.m.
Thursday, March 13 in the courtyard.
Susan Taylor of the Beaches Women's
Club called the donation "a deposit on
what we will eventually give them."
"We will have our annual rummage
sale April 9 and all of the proceeds will be
given to the band," she said. "We are just
getting started."
The Fletcher High School marching
band is among 25 selected nationwide to
participate in the event at the nation's
capital.
Approximately 70 students with a team
of chaperones will board buses bound for
the nation's capital on July 1 and will
return July 6.
To Fletcher senior Christopher Coatis,
having the community rally in support of
the students is important because it
allows the band to showcase their talents
on a nationwide scale.
"It makes it possible for us to go on
trips like to D.C. to show the "Pride of the
Beaches," said Coatis, who plays the snare
drum in the marching band. "It helps the
community see what we're actually doing
with the money and what the money is
making possible. I'm excited."
Cindy Bohn, whose son is also a mem-'
ber of the FHS marching band, said the
fundraising is "progressing wonderfully."
"The momentum was a little slow to
get going but the community is really
stepping up," she said. "We are very close
to reaching our goal. These are everyone's
children."
Bohn said the band was able to make
its initial $10,000 deposit which was due

director Jonathan MaerkI receives a check for $1,000.from Elaine Bohn,
Jacksonville Beach Woman's Club president. Bohn is accompanied by, from left,

March 1. A $12,000 grant was also award-
ed from the Jacksonville Children's
Commission to help fund the trip.
The cities of Jacksonville Beach,
Neptune Beach and Jacksonville have all
contributed toward the student's trip and
Bohn said the city of Atlantic Beach is
considering a similar request for funding
assistance.
"There's still some things that are in
flux as we have a large amount that has
been committed," Band director
Jonathan Maerkl said Wednesday. "Some
of that has come in; some of that has still
not come in. We are still actively seeking
donations."
Bohn said the band students are also
contributing toward their goal physically
as well as financially.
"It's been our goal all along to make
sure that everyone can go. In addition to
paying a percentage, they are putting
some sweat equity into this," she said.
Members of the marching band have
signed on to help with Friday night din-
ners at the American Legion and others
. will perform at an FCAT pep rally at
Jacksonville Beach Elementary School
and the grand opening of the new Wal-
Mart location at Beach Boulevard and
Hodges.
In addition to travel expenses, Bohn
said monies are needed to make sure the
uniforms are properly dry cleaned and


stored. Supplies such as ace bandages, ice
packs and hand sanitizer are needed to
replenish the first aid kit and plenty of
water and small bottles of Gatorade must
be available to keep the students hydrat-
ed along the three-miles parade proces-
sion in the heat of the summer.
"Before we take these kids to D.C. we
have to have the things in case someone
twists an ankle or sprains a wrist," she
said. "It's going to be July and some of the
kids may feel sick to their stomachs
[because of the heat."
Maerki said the students will also have
the opportunity to have some fun,
including the chance to observe a Friday
night performance of the Marine Drum
Corps at the U.S. Marine Barracks in D.C.
"That's one of the most exciting things.
This particular Friday happens to be the
Fourth of July that we get to see it," he
said.
"Being in D.C. on the Fourth of July is
a very special occasion. We're talking
about celebrating the heritage of our
country and the independence. What
better place to celebrate that than in the
Nation's Capital."

funding or supplies, contact Cindy Bohn

Input is

invited on

schools'

futures


FROM STAFF
Public input is needed in the
development of a long-range
plan for future Duval County
school district boundaries and
facility needs.
The school district is asking
for public input on the develop-
ment of a plan which will assess
facilities and school boundaries
and provide a "road map" for
future needs, according to dis-
trict officials.
The district will host a series
of meetings throughout the
month. A meeting will be held
Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at
Fletcher High School, 700
Seagate Ave.
"We need to look district-wide
at our boundaries and at out
facilities in terms of space," said
the Beaches School Board
Representative Nancy Broner,
who emphasized that the
Beaches boundaries will likely
remain east of the Intracoastal.
"[Changing the boundaries to
west of the Intracoastal] has
never been proposed nor do I
i think it would be entertained,"
t she said when asked if boundary
changes could cause Beaches
children to attend schools west
of the waterway.
Broner said that demographic
data is driving the assessment as
some Duval County schools are
over capacity and others are
under capacity.
"We have to balance the pop-
e ulation in the schools," she said.
The goal of the plan is to "see
where the gaps are," according
to Broner, who said that it has to
be proved that the district needs
more schools before they can be
e built.
e More meetings are planned
within the next several months
after the initial round.
9 "The more we pre-plan for
change, the better' we can
t accommodate it," she said.
e The plan is known as the
Academic and Community
e Excellence (ACE) Plan.

Caitlin's closet offers prom dresses
Southpoint Community Church is teaming up with a non-
profit organization, Caitlin's Closet, in hopes of distributing
hundreds of prom gowns to girls involved with Girls Inc., Big
Sisters of Northeast Florida, the Women's Center of
Jacksonville, and The Bridge of Northeast Florida on Saturday,
March 15 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Caitlin Brunell, the daughter of NFL player and former
Jacksonville Jaguar, Mark Brunell, founded Caitlin's Closet, a
non-profit organization that collects gently used special occa-
sion dresses and distributes them to prom-hopefuls, in 2006
when she was 14 years old.
"I wanted to do something to help other teens," Caitlin says.
"I realized that every girl should be able to attend school events
and feel good about herself, and I thought I might be able to
help make that happen."
She has sponsored events in Washington, D.C. and northern
Virginia and is planning to host collection drives in Florida,
Nevada, California, and Kentucky this year. She will distribute
those gowns during prom season. Since its founding, Caitlin's
Closet has collected nearly 2000 prom gowns and special occa-
sion dresses.
Caitlin is the current Miss America's Outstanding Teen, rep-
resenting the Commonwealth of Virginia. She won more than
$30,000 in college scholarships at the Miss America's
Outstanding Teen competition in Orlando, Florida in August
2007. The "little sister" pageant to the Miss America
Scholarship Organization, this not-for-profit program has pro-
vided more than $2 million in college scholarships nationally
to young women from 13 to 17 years of age. The title has given
Caitlin a nationwide vehicle to promote Caitlin's Closet.
Southpoint 'Community Church is'located'at 7556 Salisbury
Road in Jacksonville. Door Prizes, refreshments and makeovers
will be provided.
People interested in helping can email
brunellfoundation@hotmail.com. To find out more about

When you reset the

clock consider

replacing smoke alarm


FROM STAFF
With, the beginning of
Daylight Saving Time and the
"Spring forward" time change
on Sunday, many people will
change the batteries in their
smoke alarms, along with set-
ting their clocks ahead one
hour.
However, simply replacing
the batteries in some smoke
alarms may not be enough to
ensure protection against fire
emergencies, specifically if
those alarms are older than 10
years. Studies from the
National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) indicate
one out of four alarms may not
be functional due to the age of
the alarm, as well as dead or
missing batteries. That's why
the NFPA strongly recom-
mends replacing smoke alarms
after 10 years.
"Daylight Saving Time has
always served as a good
reminder to change the batter-
ies in smoke alarms," said
Debbie Hanson, director of
external affairs for BRK Brands.
"But we need people to remem-
ber that smoke alarms should


be replaced after 10 years."
In addition, several smoke
alarm models are now avail-
able with special lithium bat-
teries that last 10 years and
never have to be replaced dur-
ing the recommended life of
the alarm.
Other features of today's
smoke alarms include remote
controlled muting, to quiet
nuisance alarms and easy
access battery compartments,
which allow consumers to
change or replace batteries
without having to remove the
alarm from the ceiling.
Smoke Alarm Maintenance
Tips
According to Hanson, fire
safety education and routine
maintenance of smoke alarms
are the cornerstones to reduc-
ing the incidefice and severity
of home fires.
"One of our goals is to raise
awareness about fire safety
issues and help people protect
themselves. Replacing. home
smoke alarms after 10 years is
as important as changing the
batteries with Daylight Saving
Time."

The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) recently developed a
statewide,on-line tool for
identifying suitable sand
sources from Florida's coastal
waters.
The database includes com-
prehensive information
about offshore sediment and
geological features and is to
support beach restoration
and nourishment projects.
"With this new database,
both the state and local
beach managers will be better
equipped to evaluate and
protect our precious coastal
resources," said DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"DEP continues to look for
innovative tools and tech-
nologies to enhance our abil-
ities and protect Florida's
environment."

Evaluation and Appraisal (EAR) of
Jacksonville Beach's Comprehensive Plan

The Jacksonville Beach Planning and Development Depart-
ment, together with its consultants Reynolds Smith and Hills,
Inc., invite you to attend a public workshop regarding the
evaluation and appraisal of the existing comprehensive plan.
The workshop will be the first major step in the update of
the existing comprehensive plan.

Under state law, an evaluation and appraisal report (EAR)
is required to be submitted every seven years. For the City
of Jacksonville Beach, the next EAR submittal deadline is
December 1, 2008.

Public Workshop
Thursday, March 13th at 7:00 PM
Jacksonville Beach City Hall
11 North 3rd Street,
Jacksonville Beach, FL

The workshop will address the EAR process and the city's new
Transportation Element. It will be designed to facilitate open
and proactive participation, in order to identify the community's
major planning issues and objectives. These issues and objec-
tives will form the framework for the evaluation and appraisal
report (EAR). Recommendations from the EAR will become the
basis for any amendments that will be made to the city's compre-
hensive plan.

A draft schedule for developing the EAR will be presented during
this meeting. As the EAR is developed and finalized, there will
be additional opportunities for public participation over the next
several months.

Anyone requiring special accommodations or additional informa-
tion please contact Beth Leister at (904) 256-2253 or e-mail

The following are simple steps people can take
that will reduce the risk of fire-related injury and
property loss:
Change the batteries in smoke alarms every six months or
when the low battery signal is heard.

Test your alarms weekly using the units' test buttons to ensure
batteries and all alarm functions are working properly.
Never remove the unit's batteries to stop an unwanted alarm
or "nuisance" alarm, such as those caused by cooking smoke or
burnt toast. According to the NFPA, half of the deaths in homes
equipped with smoke alarms occur because the smoke alarm did
not sound usually when batteries are dead, disconnected or
missing.
Replace older smoke alarms after 10 years or in accordance
with manufacturer's warranties.


"ROSS," the database is pub-
licly available on the inter-
net. ROSS is a topol for coastal
engineers, project managers,
and regulators as they design
and construct beach restora-
tion and nourishment proj-
ects, that encourages better
sand management practices,
sole said.

AB will set new

district limits

FROM STAFF
Boundaries for the first district-based
general election in Atlantic Beach will
be established -within the next six
months, city officials said.
Commissioners and staff at last
week's city strategic planning meetings
discussed establishing district lines and
how representatives will be assigned for
the next general election. Candidates
must live in the district they represent.
The city will remain divided
into four precincts, but some have
become "out of balance" with others,
according to City Manager Jim Hanson,
who said that staff is working with the
Supervisor of Elections office to make
"minor changes to the current
precincts."
Each of the four districts should
encompass approximately 2,500 regis-
tered voters.
Once the district boundaries are
reconfigured, the Commission will be
responsible for determining which seat
will be assigned to each district.
Former Mayor Don Wolfson initiated
the concept of district representation
after citizens in district 13S west of
Mayport Road complained they were
not receiving adequate representation.
All candidates from each district will
be voted on city-wide. The mayor's seat
will also be voted on at-large.
Changing boundary lines must be
approved by ordinance, according to
the city clerk's office.
The next general election in Atlantic
Beach is in 2009.




JB business


opens to link


buyers to


foreclosures

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A growing number of housing fore-
closures has driven a Beaches business
to offer a new approach to home buy-
ing.
Roger Robles, chief executive officer
of Jax Foreclosure Bus, LLC, and his
partners Saturday are chartering a bus
to showcase approximately 10 to 15
homes that are in the foreclosure
process to anryone miterelted i lJuying
a! discounted house.
"I figured this is something that
would be really good here in [the
greater] Jacksonville [area],' said Robles,
who also has a real estate license.
The concept was sparked by several
news reports about the increasing num-
ber of housing foreclosures throughout
the country, said Robles, who also
heard about a similar company in
California.
The first tour is free, although Robles
said the company may charge a fee in
the future, and it begins at 10 a.m. at
830 3rd St. S. But, participants need to
arrive at 9:30 a.m.
Interested buyers and investors will
have the opportunity to ask Realtors,
investors and experts questions during
the five to six hour tour. Attendees will
also be given information on how to
buy a home in the foreclosure process.
The bus can accommodate approxi-
mately 20 people, although a second
bus is available, and will tour various
areas throughout the Beaches and the
surrounding area, Robles said.
Houses shown on the tour range any-
where from $30,000 to $350,000 in
price, Robles said. The houses sell for
approximately 20 to 40 percent under
market value, according to the compa-
ny.
Jax Foreclosure Bus, LLC will offer
bus tours every two weeks, and on the
interim weeks, the company will offer
free seminars on home buying, what to
look for when buying a foreclosed
home and lending information at a
location in Jacksonville.
For reservations or more information,
call (904) 536-3342 or visit www.jax-

What others are saying


Self-censorship

Maybe the government isn't
the one denying us our rights

The following appeared in this week's issue
of The Northeaster, the student produced
newspaper for Fletcher High School.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establish-
ment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the
right of the people to peacefully assemble, and to petition
the government for a redress of grievances."


These immortal words should
instill a sense of pride in every
American. It is a right that we
often take for granted and one
that many other nations envy;
-we are the champions of equality
to much of the world. Yet, despite
* is great importance, there is a dis-
turbing lack of knowledge among
the citizens that so dutifully fol-
low its word.


To celebrate the
First Amendment
March 16-22 is
Sunshine Week
.go to:
www.sunshine-
week.org


To those who haven't figured out just where that state-
ment is from, here's a hint: the Bill of Rights, which con-
tains the first ten amendments ratified to the
Constitution, opens with this declaration, This, the most
fundamental of our rights, is the First Amendment It
grants us the freedom of speech, press, religion, assembly
' and petition. It is what separates from the vast majority of
other nations in the world.
Yet, unbelievably, according to a study conducted by the
McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum in 2006, approxi-
mately 99 percent of adults can't name the five rights guar-
anteed by the First Amendment, a startling concept that
leaves one positively flabbergasted. These are people who
promise to uphold America's greatest principles of democ-
racy, who. svear allegiance to the flag and who "so proud-
ly" hailed to the twilight's last gleaming. How it is possible
that our nation, run by these so-called patriots, is so unin-
formed? We are busy parading our ideals about democracy
and flourishing our Constitution in others' faces, rather
than taking the time to actually learn just what our'coun-
try is founded upon. If we plan to make changes in the
world, we ought to begin with ourselves.
J"Sweep your own doorstep before you sweep anyone
else's," as the saying goes.
Even high school students, who are actually required to
take classes involving the United States Constitution,
don't seem to have a firm grasp on their rights. According
to the same 2006 study, a stunning 75 percent of students
believe that burning the American flag is illegal. And while
-that issue has been a sticky one, every attempt at passing
a constitutional amendment to ban flag desecration has
failed it is viewed as a& peansof --cpm-au
expressionr,"which is protected.'by the First-An m drnen
Case in point: as Americans, we are woefully ignorant of
our own government's principles and actions and only
have ourselves to blame. The thirst for knowledge appears
to be waning at a shocking rate.
There is still hope, however. While idiocy and bigotry
are rarely curable, ignorance is easily fixed. We simply
need to acknowledge the void in our erudition; it is noth-
ing that a little reading can't mend. And hey you might
just learn something interesting.

Our military deserve better compensation


To the editor:
Military personnel do not
get enough for the sacrifices
they make. In my research, I
have found that marines, the
men and women who fight
for our country, receive -
after 22 years of service -
only $5,185.80 per month.
Do you see football players,
who get about $4,000,000
per season fight, die or suf-
fer? No. That's what marines
do! Americans need to give
more appreciation to those
who are dying in Iraq and
Afghanistan by paying them
more than what they get
now. I'm 11 and I can see
what grown-ups won't or
can't see. I'm 11 and I am
making a stand. Will you?
Can you imagine a soldier


who fights for his country
and yet can't pay rent for his
apartment? A mother who
can't feed her baby because
her husband does not make
enough money? Well, that is
what is happening because
we don't take a stand for
their rights. We can afford to
pay $4,000,000 to a person
who only scores goals for our
entertainment, but can't pay
a soldier that fights for our
safety, our comfort and our
freedom more than
$5,185.80 per month?
Rock stars make about
$15,000,000 a year. They
only entertain us. What
about those who fight for us?
Those who die for us? What
about those who suffer for
us? We need to think about


this subject, and not just
study it, but do something
about it! We are all equal!
None among us are greater
than our neighbors. Marines
and all service men and
women need more that what
we can give them!
If we are to thrive as a
nation, tho thrive as a
whole, we all need to have
the same rights, the same
treatment and fair pay. I
don't mean try to be a fail-
ure, just give to those who
deserve it, not just to those
who pay well. I want to
change the world. I think we
can all make this world a bet-
ter place.

This team is special

by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
The sandlot baseball that is played Saturdays at
Cornerstone Park is special to some special kids, who
may have no other chance to play team ball.
The players are in the Rising Star division of the Ponte
Vedra Athletic Association for those whose disabilities
prevent them from playing with a "regular" team.
The division is a dream come true for at least one play-
er Robbie Culliton, 12, whose father, Bob Culliton,
approached the PVAA last year about the team.
"All he's [Robbie] ever want to do was play on a base-
ball team," the boy's mother, Mary Jo Culliton, said in a
telephone interview this week.
"It just provides him the capacity to be a regular kid .
. and play a real game," she said of their son, who has
"motor planning issues" so can't respond or act as quick-
ly as most children his age.
The PVAA was "extremely supportive" and provided
the Rising Stars with a place to play and equipment to
use, Mary Jo Culliton said.
It was discovered during the first year that expecting
the Rising Stars to make the kind of commitment
expected of other teams was not realistic, she said.
"They weren't used to having a more traditional
sports outfit," she said. Many of the special needs kids
have frequent therapy or other sessions that keep them
busy, she said.
So, this year, "basically, there's no commitment. It's a
sandlot format" and those who show up can play, she
said.
The team's third practice is Saturday, and the
Cullitons invite any child who would like to take part to
go to the Cornerstone fields for practice 3 p.m. to 4:30
p.m.
Although turnout has been low four youngsters
played last Saturday, Mary Jo Culliton said siblings,
friends and other children will join with the Rising Stars
for the games, she said.
"There actually will be some typical kids out there
playing with the Rising Stars," she said, giving the chil-
dren "a real game."
Special needs and other children can join in the games
even if they haven't attended a practice, she said. There
is no cost, but players should bring their own glove.
Games are scheduled March 15, April 5, 12, 19, 26 and
May 3 on field 2 at Cornerstone. Game time is 3 p.m..
In general, the Rising Stars range in age from about 8
to about 13, she said.
"The more kids we have out there, the more real it is."
For information on Rising Stars, call Coach Bob
Culliton at (904) 859-9606.

Fresh idea: Sign can be 12 sq. feet larger


FROM STAFF
The Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) gave its OK
last week for a larger "Fresh
Market" wall sign to be placed at
the grocery store along State
Road A1A in Ponte Vedra Beach.
The ARC's Feb. 27 approval of
a 36-square-foot sign to replace
the existing 24-square-foot sign
follows the Degcmber vote by
thie., St. Johns County
Commission allowing the larger
sign.
Under the rules of the Ponte


Vedra Palm Valley Overlay
District, which are overseen by
ARC, wall signs for businesses
are to be limited to 24 square
feet
The Fresh Market sign, like
the signs of other businesses
along major roads in the Ponte
Vedra area, was a sticking point
for the grocery store, which
rroved into the space formerly
occupied by Harris Teeter.
FreshtMirket originally tried,
for a 47-square-foot sign, but
ARC board members rejected


that proposal in July.
When the issue came before
County Commissioners in
August, commissioners sent it
back to the ARC, and Fresh
Market agreed to a suggestion
from county staff to reduce the
sign to 36-square-feet as a com-
promise.
But when ARC members
again took up the issue, the four
members present were split ,-l,
on whether to allow the larger
sign.
When commissioners voted


to approve the larger sign in
December, two commissioner
expressed their distaste for deal-
ing with such an issue.
"This board doesn't want to
deal with these issues,"
Commissioner Ben Rich said
during the December meeting.
"I think we have to insert
some level of common sense
into this thing," Commissioner
Ji./ "trati a "I," believe ?ye
have to e somewhat business-
friendly but not intrusive to the
community," he added.

Ponte Vedra woman is


cover story in 'Working


Mom' magazine


FROM STAFF


I


An entrepreneur who moved
her company, Green Frog Art,
from New York to Ponte Vedra ,
Beach is the featured subject on
the covet of the upcoming r
"Working Mother Magazine."
Kelly Neal, president and
chief designer of the children's
furnishings company, is pic- ,
tured on the magazine's April\
cover holding her daughter
Ava, 1.
The story inside tells about
Neal's decision to leave behind
the mergers and acquisitions
she brokered for a New York
law firm and 12 years ago
launch the furniture design
company, although she had no
background in furniture or
design.
After the business took off,
Neal decided to relocate to
Ponte Vedra Beach in 1997
because of the state's friendly Ke
business climate, the wealth of
artists in the community and
the fact that her parents live in Ponte Vedra, the
magazine article notes.
The same year that Neal moved her compa-
ny's furniture production to China 2000 -
she met a neighbor, David Mariotti, manager of


7. ,
z ,.,, '. '


lly Neal


the Lodge & Club at Ponte
Vedra Beach.
The two married about
two years later and, as the
magazine article explains,
the couple struggled with
fertility problems and
miscarriage for three years
before Neal was able to get
pregnant through invitro
fertilization.
Now a mother, Neal bal-
ances the responsibilities
of business and family,
reserving weekends for
family time, according to
the article.
Green Frog Art has
seven employees in a kid-
friendly and dog-friendly
atmosphere, the story
notes.
"I was excited when the
magazine contacted me
and asked if I would be
their cover model," Neal
said in a news release this
week. "When someone


recognizes your hard work as both a business
woman and q mother, it is truly flattering."
The April issue of "Working Mother
Magazine" is expected to be available about
mid-March.


Cops warn of online scam


FROM STAFF
If you get an e-mail whose subject line
declares that "some one you know, want you
dead," do not respond, advises the St. Johns
County Sheriff's Office.
At least three St. Johns County residents over
the past month have reported receiving such a
threat from a supposed hit man in an e-mail
scam first reported by the FBI in December 2006,
according to deputies.
The e-mail "threatens to kill recipients if they
do not pay the sender," according to a news
release from the Sheriff's Office.
"The scam is preying on fears" instead of "the
recipients' greed or good intentions" as previous
e-scams have done, the release said.
"If you receive an e-mail such as this, just
delete it and never respond back," the Sheriffs
Office advises.


"A reply just sends a signal to senders that
they have reached a live account."
The warning comes as Bill McCollum,
Florida's attorney general, encourages con-
sumers to become better informed to avoid
falling prey to scam and con artists.
"Con artists are often very clever in devising
new schemes, and consumers have to be ... ever
on their guard," McCollum said in a news
release this week.
Debt collection and credit reporting agencies
top the list of fraud complaints received last year
by the Attorney General's office.
They were followed by Internet-related scams
that emerged last year, among them a variety of
check overpayment schemes, as well as identity
theft and complaints about online companies
that fail to deliver ordered merchandise, accord-
ing to McCollum's office.

Brett Favre's retirement
means Jacksonville fans
won't get to see the quar-
terback one last time. Green
Bay is scheduled to play the
Jaguars this fall the team's
first trip to Jacksonville since
2001 but if Favre sticks
with his retirement plan,
Aaron Rodgers will line up
behind center for the Packers.

While former Nease High
star James Wilson has
requested to be released
from his scholarship at
Florida, Gators coach Urban
Meyer hasn't given up trying
to convince the offensive
lineman to stay. Wilson
missed all of the 2007 season
following knee surgery last
fall and is seeking to transfer
to Wake Forest. "All young
people go through issues,"
Meyer told Gatorsports.com.
"We're not going to stop try-
ing to get him to come back
because he's a quality guy. I.
think he could be a heck of
a player."

Sometimes the third chapter
of a trilogy is a colossal disas-
ter (Godfather III, anyone?).
But apparently a third fight
between 45-year-old Evander
Holyfield and Mike Tyson, 42,
is in the works. They last met
11 years ago the infamous
ear-biting bout yet Tyson
needs the money and for
some reason Holyfield contin-
ues to box so it'll probably
happen.

Great race for MVP in the
NBA. Just when folks are
ready to anoint the Lakers'
Kobe Bryant, Cleveland's
LeBron James puts up 50
points against the Knicks.
And lest anyone forget,
Kevin Garnett has led the
Celtics to the NBA's best
record.

Interesting revelation by
Marcus Stroud that he soured
on the Jaguars after the team
went after his signing bonus
following last season's suspen-
sion for violating the league's
substance-abuse policy. On
Pete Prisco's radio show
Tuesday, Stroud said the move
prompted his request for the
trade that eventually landed
him in Buffalo.

Looks like Bobby Knight
knew when to cut and run.
Under new coach Pat
Knight, Texas Tech has suf-
fered 44- and 58-point losses
in its last two games.

Call it the Tim Tebow effect,
but ESPN has not only
announced plans to televise
Florida's April 12 Orange and
Blue spring scrimmage, but
the entire GameDay crew will
be on hand. Maybe it's an
indication of where the Gators
will be ranked heading into
the 2008 season.
Former Fletcher High ten-
nis ace Whitney Thompson
survived another round on
America's Next Top Model
this week. She is one of 11
contestants left on the Tyra
Banks-hosted show, which
airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on
the CW network.

Here Comes the Son: If you
thought George Steinbrenner
shot from the lip, you'll love
his son, Hank. The new
Yankees boss has already been
dubbed "HankenStein" by the
New York media for his pen-
chant of saying whatever pops
into his head. To date, he's
criticized everything from
Alex Rodriguez to the Mitchell
Report to Red Sox nation. And
the regular season hasn't even
started yet.

Let me tell you about the one that got away


he first of March sig-
naled the beginning of
things that are impor-
tant to residents here at the
Beaches.
It was the first day that I got
to pull out board shorts from
the dresser, dig my Reefs out
from under the bed and take '
the first of many of my sleeve-
less T-shirts off a hanger and
wear all three accordingly.
It's not quite summer yet,
but summer-y enough.
So I decided to go do some-
thing I haven't done in a long
time: Go fishing.
I don't know much about
fishing. No one's ever really
taught me anything about it.
And the one time I decided to
go try it, my inexperience
really showed.
I found my old pole in the
garage and a tackle box that
had maybe two weights and a
hook in it. I dusted off the
cobwebs from the pole and
headed to the Jacksonville
Beach Pier.
There are those days at the
beach when you just feel
you're supposed to be there.

Last Saturday was one of
them.
The sun was out, guys were
tossing the football near the
water while their girls were
getting a tan and the pier was
packed.
It seemed like a great day
for fishing, too. The water was
flatter than Marissa Miller's
tummy and was clear enough
to see past the first few inches


of the surface.
I made my way out toward
the end of the pier and found
a spot between some folks to
set up.
I set up my pole with a
hook that was more suitable
for catching Jaws than the

SMy atten-

to the bird
situation for a

I decided it was time to reel in
the line when it hit.
My pole was bent to the
point of snapping and my line
was tense enough to strum a
melody. A crowd started gath-


ering around to see what was
on the other end of my line.
It was a big one. Huge, in
fact. It was the Jacksonville
Beach Pier.
When I was little, I used to
hook on the old wooden pier
many times, but I didn't think
that was possible with the
new concrete one.
Guess I was wrong.
These two kind ladies came
over to help out. Seems they
knew how to get me out of
my little mess. They grabbed
the line and tried to snap it.
It finally gave way after a
few minutes, only the line
didn't break and the whole
setup, weight, hook and all,
shot about 50 feet in the air.
One woman yelled "Fore!"
to alarm all those around us.
It landed on a bystander's
head and luckily didn't injure
him or anyone else.
I decided to leave after that.
Figured that was enough
action for a day.
Did learn one thing though,
that I have no clue how to
fish. But it's something I want
to learn. So I'm looking for a
few lessons.

After being rained out
Tuesday, the Fletcher High

back Wednesday with a deci-
sive 6-1 win over Englewood
at Huguenot Tennis center.
Senators No. 1 singles player
Savannah Perry led Fletcher
with a 8-0 victory in her
match. Teammate Elisabeth
Cavallaro followed suit with
an 8-0 pro set win.
Third-ranked Katelin Allen
earned an 8-2 victory over her
Rams opponent, while
Senators No. 4 singles player
Samantha Massar won, 8-0.
Hallie Stennes made it a
clean singles sweep for
Fletcher with her 8-0 victory.
"Savannah has great foot-
work," Senators head coach
Penny Rauckis said of her No.
1 player. "She anticipates very
well and is able to get into
position to hit down on the
ball almost all the time.
"We've got great depth on
the team this year and I think
we'll be very competitive."
In doubles play against
Englewood, Cavallaro teamed
with Patricia Petei for an 8-4
victory.
With Wednesday's win,
Fletcher improved to 4-3 on
the season with a few impor-

ever, are important show-
downs against Paxon March

Gate River Run promises to be bigger than ever


r-F |e 31st annual Gate
| River Run takes place this
Saturday morning at 8:30
a.m. Last year, a record num-
ber of people (14,500) turned
out for the main event, the
15K, and you can expect even
more this time.
Over 11,000 have entered
,and the MPS River Run expo
will open at noon Thursday,
You can bet that a few thou-
sand latecomers will sign up
during the expo that contin-
ues until 8 p.m. Friday. The
15K will probably crest 15,000
and that will be the biggest
race in Jacksonville history, six
times larger than the original
race of 1977.
Even the accompanying
events are sizeable. Race
Director Doug Aired expects
2,500 in the Florida Times
Union 5K Charity Run/Walk
and 2,000 in the kids run, the
adidas Junior River Run.
"I think we will see 20,000
total participation," Aired said.
Competitively the race is
exciting and wide open
among the men but rather
dull and predictable between
the women.
Aired said: "We have Brian
Sell, who finished third in the
Olympic Trials, running and
Dan Browne, a former River
Run champion. There is also
Abdi Abdirahmen, Justis
young, Andrew Carlson and a
host of young new faces. I
think this could be the year
when we crowna totally new
champion.
"On the women's side there
is Deena Castor who should
win it easily," he said.
But the real star of this
year's event may not be a per-
son but a thing. The new fin-
ish line, located inside the
Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium on the Jaguars' 20-
yard line, is an unqualified
smash hit. The football field is
very likely the reason why the
attendance figures will go
through the roof.
Additionally, the Jumbotron
will be on and runners will be
able to see themselves finish
on the home team's turf.
It's not just about athletics
anymore, it's entertainment.
But 47 men and women in
this year's race can remember
a time when it was about ath-
letics and not much else. They
have been there since the
beginning, they are The
Streakers.
This is the small (and grow-
ing ever smaller) group that
has run every race right from
the first River Run 15,000 in
1977.
Neptune Beach's Dave
Ohnsman has not only run
them all but has come home
with a lot of silverware. The
64-year old has placed in his
age group eight times out of
his last nine River Runs. The
one time he didn't win any
hardware was when, at 59, he
was outrun by none other
than the legend himself, Bill
Rogers.
Yes, the same BR who won
the Boston and New York


BOB FERNEE
RUNNING/FITNESS

Marathons a gazillion times.
Oddly enough, Ohnsman's
slowest River Run was his first
one. As a young 33-year-old
pup he ran 63 minutes and
ten-seconds and vowed,
"Never to run so slow again."
He also promised himself to
run "under my age." So at the
age of 61 in 2005, he ran
59:25, in 2006 he ran 61 min-
utes and in 2007 he completed
the course in 62 minutes.
"I wasn't all that hot When I
was younger," Ohnsman said.
"But my decline hasn't been as
much as other peoples'. I
haven't gone down as much as
some of the others."
But Ohnsman is sweating


out this year's race more than
usual. Like all aging runners -
Streakers included he has.
been derailed more than once
by injuries.
Since November Ohnsman
has had foot and hamstring
troubles and his usual regimen
of 50-miles a week of treadmill
running has been reduced to
just 16.
A couple of years ago, a
Streaker died while running
the Gate and I felt compelled
to ask Ohnsman: Would you
do it If you knew it tight kill
you?
"No, I wouldn't. But it's
been fun," he said.
There aren't many running
sages around these days but
Atlantic Beach Streaker Leo
Sheckells appears to be one of
them. His steady-as-you-go
credo is hard to argue with.
Leo has been running for-
ages but has never pushed the
distance, either in racing or
training.
"I enjoy it too much, to do
it too much," Sheckells
explained. "I want to be in it
for the long run."
Though he has run the,
marathon.and half-marathon
once each, Sheckells has no
desire for long races. In fact,
the 9.3 miles of the Gate River

Run is a far as he ever runs at
one time.
"I run every other day; that's
it. My once-a-week long run is
six miles, my regular run is five
miles and my weekly speed
run is three to four miles.
About 15 miles a week," he
said.
Sheckells is now 68 years
old. He can't remember any
particular River Run, saying:
"They were all about the same
over the years."
He remembers his best while
being 40-something and run-
ning a 63-something. To Leo
Sheckells it is all immaterial.
Regarding the River Run, he
says, "It's not harder, just .


slower." According to
Sheckells, "The race is not that
hard but as you get older you
have to go slower."
"Running is a way of life for
me and I want to do it until I
can't do it any more," he said.
The Streakers are a proud
bunch and that seems to be
the opinion of all of them.
Father Time, however, man-
ages to claim a Streaker or so
with each succeeding year.
As for the River Run,
Sheckells considered for a
moment, then said: "Sixty-
eight to 78. Yes, I think I have
ten more River Runs in me."
Ever thought of being the
last Streaker standing? I asked.


"No, I have never thought
about anything like that," he
replied. "It is not a competi-
tive deal for me, being out
there running the race is pure-
ly a personal thing."
You can still get in on the
excitement and enjoyment of
the Gate River Run. If you
have entered or plan to, be
forewarned: According to
Aired, between the record
crowd and the construction
going on along Bay Street, get-
ting to the Fairgrounds area
downtown will be harder than
ever so plan your trip accord-
ingly.
That's yet another difference
between 1977 and 2008.

"You know how it is there
early in the morning in Havana
with the bums still asleep
against the walls of the build-
ings, before even the ice wagons
come by with ice for the bars?"
- Ernest Hemingway, from
"To Have and Have Not"

by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
rnest Hemingway was
contemplating his next
great novel when he
befriended photographer
Walker Evans ini Cuba in the
spring of 1933.
Hemingway, then 33, was in
Havana to fish, drink and
write.
Evans, 29, was there to take
photographs for "Crime in
Cuba," a book detailing the
oppressive policies of Cuban
dictator Gerardo Machado.
In the evenings, Evans
joined Hemingway for drinks
and spirited conversation at
Sloppy Joe's,,a Havana water-
ing hole that would be made
famous in Hemingway's 1937
novel "To Have and Have
Not."
Evans reportedly took hun-
dreds of black-and-white por-
traits during his brief Havana
photo assignment, but oddly
enough, not one of
Hemingway.
Vintage photographs that
Evans took in Cuba along
with Hemingway's personal
letters and artifacts from that
period comprise a new exhibit
at the Cummer Museum of
Art & Gardens.
"Ernest Hemingway and
Walker Evans: Three Weeks in
Cuba, 1933" opens Saturday at
829 Riverside Ave. Admission
is $10 for adults and $6 for
seniors, students and nmilitarv'.
...-


The Evans prints, discov-
ered by Hemingway's heirs in
the early 1960s, document the
political unrest and general
malaise that engulfed Cuba in
the early 1930s.
According to the The
Museum of Modern Art in
New York, which hosted a solo
exhibit of Evans' work in
1938, "It was in Havana that
[Evans] captured some of his
first images of poverty, destitu-
tion and despair, and also his
first great portraits of working
people."
Scholars believe many of the
photos Evans took in Cuba
provided source material for
Hemingway's "To Have and
Have Not."
Fearing the Cuban secret
police might confiscate his
negatives, Evans gave
Hemingway some 40 prints as
a safety precaution.
Hemingway stored the pho-
tos in a room behind a Key
West bar, along with other
personal items:
After the author's death in
1961, the prints made their
way to museum collections,
including the J. Paul Getty
Museum in Los Angeles,
which has nearly 1,200 Evans
prints spanning four decades

of the photographer's life.
Best known for his spell-
binding portraits of Alabama
sharecroppers during the
Depression, Evans taught pho-
tography at Yale University in
later years. His early commis-
sion work in Cuba sharpened
his focus for the remainder of
his life.
In 2001, the Getty Museum
published "Walker Evans
Cuba," a large-format book
featuring more than 60 Evans
photos from 1933.
Some of the photos in the


book also appear in the
Cummer exhibit, which is
organized by the Key West
Museum of Art and History.
"Evans liked photographing
shopfronts at the hour of their
utmost stillness," Andrei
Codrescu, an Evans scholar,
says in an essay in "Walker
Evans Cuba."
"When he photographed
individuals, he preferred them
on an emnpty stage."
Codiescu, a professor at
Louisiana State University,
said,.Evans first developed "an

empathy for the downtrod-
den" while taking portraits of
Havana street beggars and
Cuban slums.
The Havana assignment,
Codrescu said, would "prefig-
ure" Evans' photographic con-
tributions on the ground-
breaking 1941 book "Let Us
Now Praise Famous Men" by
James Agee, who detailed the
suffering of tenant farmers in
Hale County, Ala.

FROM CONTRIBUTOR
A little fertilizer can perk up
a St. Augustinegrass lawn as
spring arrives, but homeown-
ers who overdo it may find
they're growing more than
grass.
A University of Florida study
suggests that repeatedly using
large amounts of nitrogen fer-
tilizer can ignite a population
explosion of Southern chinch
bugs-the No. 1 insect pest of St.
Augustinegrass, the state's
most popular turfgrass.
The findings were presented
in Jacksonville this week at an
Entomological Society of
America meeting.
"Everything in moderation,"
said Eileen Buss, an associate
professor of entomology with
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. "When
we try to overly manage a nat-
ural system we get the balance
out of whack."
UF turfgrass experts advise
homeowners to use no more
than 1 pound of slow-release
nitrogen fertilizer per 1,000
square feet of lawn, a recom-
mendation found in the docu-
ment "St. Augustinegrass for
Florida
Lawns," available at
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/LH010.
In the study, Southern


chinch bugs produced the
most eggs on St.
Augustinegrass fed the equiva-
lent of 2 pounds nitrogen per
1,000 square feet per month.
That rate is a worst-case sce-
nario, she said, but not unreal-
istic because people sometimes
deliberately overfertilize in
their zest to have the greenest
lawn in the neighborhood.
That more-is-better
approach has become riskier in
the past five years because
Southern chinch bugs in
Citrus, Escambia, Flagler,
Hillsborough, Lake, Orange
and Volusia counties have
developed resistance to
pyrethroids, the class of pesti-
cides commonly used to con-
trol. the insects, Buss said.
,Resistant, chinch bugs may
be able to survive exposure to
bifenthrin, a pyrethroid that is
the top choice for Southern
chinch bug control in Florida.
However, pyrethroids should
still perform well against non-
resistant populations of
Southern chinch bugs.
Buss co-authored the study
with turfgrass specialist Laurie
Trenholm, an associate profes-
sor of environmental horticul-
ture, and, doctor of plant med-
icine student Megan Gilbert.
Conducted at a UF research


facility in Citra, it involved
chinch bugs raised on St.
Augustinegrass that received
nitrogen fertilizer at one of five
rates, equivalent to 0, 0.5, 1, 2
or 4 pounds of nitrogen per
1,000 square feet of turf,
applied monthly.
The chinch bugs were paired
to reproduce, each pair placed
in a cage containing St.
Augustinegrass fertilized at the
same rate the insects previous-
ly experienced. The results
showed females raised on grass
given 0 or 0.5 pounds nitrogen
produced 15 to 20 eggs per
week; those on grass given 1 or
2 pounds produced 25 to 35.
Females on grass given 4
pounds briefly produced 45
eggs per week, then declined to
20, ,; . -.,
Adult female Southern
chinch bugs live about two
months, and produce eggs the
entire time.
Buss said female chinch bugs
produce more eggs on healthy
St. Augustinegrass, which
accounts for the differences in
egg production.
Future research may exam-
ine the role of the nutrients
phosphorus and potassium in
chinch bug population
growth, and the possibility
that overfertilization may


reduce turfgrass resistance to
chinch bugs.
Though this study was con-
ducted in a laboratory rather
than a yard, Buss says the
results are relevant to home-
owners. Southern chinch bugs
don't move around much,
staying in the same area unless
they can't find food.
And with the insects produc-
ing a new generation every
four to six weeks during
Florida summers, increased
egg-laying could lead to rapid
population growth in overfed
lawns.
Buss said she's not sure how
applicable the results are in
other Gulf Coast states where
St. Augustinegrass is common-
ly grown, due to environmen-
tal differences,..:.,;j *.; , ,: ,
Studies on other chinch bug
species elsewhere in the
United States show that it's
common for nitrogen fertilizer
to boost egg production, said
chinch bug expert Fred
Baxendale, an entomology
professor with the University
of Nebraska-Lincoln.
"What Dr. Buss is seeing is in
line with prior research," he
said. "I think her research is
interesting, I think it's valid
and it needs to be taken fur-
ther."

During his time in Havana,
Evans hit it off with
Hemingway, whom he
admired as a novelist and a
reporter.
"Photography is reporting,"
Evans told an interviewer in
1971.
"I met Hemingway and
became friends with him. He
knew exactly who I was and
what I was doing."
Evans later became a writer
for Time magazine and an edi-
tor at Fortune magazine, but
his major contribution to the
arts are his documentary-style
photographs, including iconic


images of Havana in 1933.
"Evans was fascinated with
capturing people unaware,
inside their private bubbles of
self, even as they moved
through public space,"
Codrescu says in "Walker
Evans Cuba."
"Urban geometry was Evans'
quarry, an elusive subject that
changed as quickly as a movie
marquee or a crowd on the
street."
"Ernest Hemingway and
Walker Evans: Three Weeks in
Cuba, 1933," runs until April
at the Cummer Museum. Call
356-6857 for more informa-
tion.


Cont. from B-1
See for the past two years.
Pate said her parents were
missionaries in China in the
early 1900s, so she shares a
common bond with See,
whose great-great-grandfa-
ther emigrated from China to
the' U.S. to work on the
transcontinental railroad in
the 1800s.
"Her ancestors and my par-
ents lived in the same town
in China," said Pate, the wife
of a retired Navy captain.
"We share a lot of coinci-
dences. I can hardly wait


until next week."
See grew up in the
Chinatown section of L.A.
and is one-eighth Chinese.
She has spent the past 18
years writing about Chinese-
American culture, from detec-
tive stories such as "Interior"
(2000), which dealt with the
Chinese toy market, to 1995's
"On Gold Mountain," which
traces the first 100 years of
See's family tree.
"I don't look Chinese," said
See, who has red hair and
freckles.
"But I feel Chinese in my


heart. Most people don't
think that much about their
identity. But that's how dif-
ferently I see the world."
A self-admitted "research
fiend," See said she loves
gathering source.material for
her books almost as much as
writing them.
"Even my mystery novels
are research-based," said See,
whose next novel, "Shanghai
Girl," about arranged Chinese
marriages in 1930s America,
is due out in mid-2009.
Before writing "Snow
Flower and the Secret Fan,"


See was told there would be
no audience for a novel about
secret writings invented and
concealed by Chinese women
for more than 1,000 years.
"They said, 'No one is
going to read this one,' See
recalled this week. "Everyone
was wrong.
"So I said, 'I'm going to put
my all into it.' It gave me the
courage to write deeper and
get to those deep, but some-
times dark emotions."

CONTRIBUTOR
Truth, it's well known, is
stranger than fiction. In
"Strange Wilderness," a
comedy loosely tied to Adam
Sandler's production compa-
ny, the star of "Water Boy"
tries through proxies to con-
vince you differently.
Though he never succeeds,
many of his pals try and fail
miserably. Yes, there ARE a few
laugh-out-loud scenes in this
comedy aimed at teen-age
boys but be assured only a
;,tiny minority, of .moviegoers
will find anything good to say
about this 92-minute, R-rated
atrocity.
"Strange Wilderness'" basic
premise isn't bad. Again loose-
ly (VERY loosely!) leading
man Steve Zahn's dad
bequeaths him a struggling
nature-type TV show upon his
untimely demise.' Zahn
("Rescue Dawn," "Daddy Day
Care") is given two weeks by
evil TV network execs to
either raise the show's


abysmal ratings or find a new
job.
Of course, this would be a
difficult job for anyone, let
alone a "back shop" filled with
stoners and whackos. Then,
like a bolt of lightening, inspi-
ration arrives.
Why not try to find Bigfoot,
making both a big score and
lots of money at the same
time?
For some reason, Zahn (a
Harvard graduate!) and his
stumbling gang of idiots
decides the hairy creature is in
Ecuador. With an 'air of des-'
peration -hanging over every-
one, it's off to South America
for the cast and crew.
Surprisingly, the flick's writ-
ten by Peter Gaulke ("Ice Age:
The Meltdown"). He also has a
hand in production. Fred Wolf
("The Adventures of the
American Rabbit," "Joe Dirt")
helped with the writing
chores, and when he wasn't
busy polishing the script, he
also directed the on-screen
action.


With talent such as this, one
might think this flick's univer-
sal panning by critics might
just be the ravings of a bunch
of jaded snobs. Believe this
reporter: It isn't. One scene, in
which a turkey is pho-
tographed attached to an
unmentionable part of one of
the male actor's bodies, should
be hilarious.
It does have certain comedic
elements, but it's so badly
done and photographed,
you'll wince rather than
laugh.
Despite a cameo by Ernest
Borgnine who in a few short
minutes out-acts the rest of
the cast put together "Strange
Winderness" isn't a flick to
pencil in on your movie
schedule.
Should you see this badly-
done flick in theaters?
Absolutely not! This view will
be reinforced after you view
the trailer at www.strangewil-
dernessmovie.com/#intro.
Wait for the DVD if you just
can't miss it!

Mother's Day pops concert reinstated for '08


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A Mother's Day symphony
concert will fly this year in
Jacksonville Beach thanks to
money left over from the Sea
and Sky Spectacular.
The City Council Monday
voted to reinstate the popular
Mother's Day Pops at the
Beach concert at the SeaWalk
Pavilion. The free annual
event was excluded from the
2008 special events budget
because of state property tax
cuts.
City Manager George
Forbes said $7,300 in unspent
air show funds and $8,500
earned in facility use fees dur-
ing the filming of the HBO
film "Recount" at City Hall
and the Operations and
Maintenance facility will help
with production costs associ-
ated with the symphony
event.

The Beaches Fine Arts Series
also agreed to contract direct-
ly with the Jacksonville
Symphony Orchestra and
fund their performance fee.
"We are very fortunate that
the Beaches Fine Arts Series is
.taking care of the money for
the symphony itself," Forbes
said. "With the money from
the user fees for "Recount"
and the remaining air show
funds all made this possible.


Actually this is a very expen-
sive event."
Last year, the cost to pro-
duce the Pops at the Beach
concert was nearly $40,000
with only $6,000 of those
expenses paid through out-
side revenues.
Expenses for the event

Christ Episcopal will host 'The Last Hours of Christ'


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Christ Episcopal Church will
host the "LastHours of Christ"
from 5 to 9 p.an. on March 15
and 16 at DayBreak Retreat
Center at 895 Palm Valley
Road, Route 210, in St. Johns
County.
"Last Hours with Christ" is a
re-enactment of a "great, pow-
erful, and dramatic story," said
cast member Mark Barrett who
is portraying Jesus for the third
year.
"This is the Passion of
Christ, suitable for the entire
family," says Rev. Rick
Wesbury, Rector of Christ
Church.
The "Last Hours with
Christ" is open to the public
with no admission charge.
The audience will experi
ences scenes from the Passion
or Chr'ist as they walk through
the markets of Jerusalem, the
Garden of Gethsemane, stop at


Pilate's Court, and continue on
to Golgotha.
Barrett is one of three men
portraying Jesus this year. Each
actor participates in one 20-
minute performance every
hour.
Playing the part of Jesus is
"so humbling," he said.
"The first thing I had to do
was to get over my objections
to doing it...and thinking you
don't belong in this role."
After being in the produc-
tion Barrett said that he real-
ized the its value does not
depend on the quality of the.
acting, but on the "meaning-
ful, inspiring story."
Playing Jesus during the
trail scene, Barrett said that he
has tried be in character and
feel what it would have been
like to watch and listen to the
crowd.
The experience is one he
describes as "very lonely and
p a in fu l." I 1 . .. ..
During his breaks from
being a cast member, Barrett


also stands with the audience
to observe their reaction to the
production.
"People are really moved by
some of the scenes."
The power of being in the
audience is impressive, he said.
It is possible to emphathize
with the crowd and to empha-
size with Jesus. There are
many levels to the story being
told, he said.
For Jim Raimondo, being a
cast member in the "Last
Hours" is "a way to be part of
something important to the
church."
This will be the second year
that he will portray Pontius
Pilate in the production.
Previously he had played the
part of Judas.
Raimonda said that he por-
trays Pilate as not vindictive.
He is a person who "ends up
doing what he does not want
to do,"- ..... .
- The crowd's response during
the trial scene as well as the
answers Jesus gives to Pilate do


not leave him much choice,
said Raimondo.
Watching the audience dur-
ing the scene, Raimondo has
noticed that some people
actively participate with the
cast saying "crucify him."
Then when Jesus is led away
with the cross, the audience
looks uncomfortable.They
look as if they are wondering
what they have done, he said.
Both Barrett and Raimondo
are members of Christ
Episcopal Church. Barrett lives
with his family in Ponte Vedra
and is in the computer soft-
ware business.
Raimondo is a helicopter
pilot at Mayport Naval Station
and lives with his family in
Jacksonville Beach.His family
has also participated in the
production of the "Last Hours
with Christ."
This experience has helped
his children, ages 12, 10, and
three years old, to understand
the religious significance of
Easter, said Raimondo.
