Circuit Judge John Alexander
ordered 36-year-old Leslie
Demeniuk to serve two consecu-
tive life sentences without parole
Friday for the murder of her twin
sons in Ponte Vedra in 2001.
Handcuffed at the wrist and
ankles and standing before the
judge, Demeniuk showed no
reaction when the sentence was
Demeniuk was convicted last
month of two counts of first
degree murder in the March 17,
2001, deaths of 4-year-olds John
and James., Both boys were shot
in the head-... -.
Alexander handed down the
sentences after listening to state-
ments from Tommy Demeniuk,
the boys' father, and his sister
Leslie and Tommy Demeniuk
were getting a divorce when the
boys were killed.
"My last words to them were
that I love them," Tommy
Demeniuk told the judge as he
fought back tears.
Flipping through the pages of
his statement, Demeniuk talked
about his memories of time
spent with his sons and
described their infectious, light-
"Johnny and Jamie loved to
laugh, and they would light up
the room wherever they went,"
Johnny was born first,
Demeniuk told the judge, and
Jamie came 11 minutes later.
The father said that Johnny.
suffered a few complications in.
his first fet' hours of life and that'
he held his son's tiny hand dur-
ing the ordeal.
"1I felt like my touch made a
difference," he said.
Jamie was more of the "tough
guy" and would always convince
Johnny to gang up on their dad
in a wrestling match, Demeniuk
But one of them was always
careful to rerhove their father's
glasses so as not to break them,
One of the boys' favorite activ-
ities was -reading a book right
before- bedtime, the father-said.
Their favorite was -'Good Night
Moon," and they had it "memo-
rized word for word," he said.
He said the boys had just
caught their first fish with their
dad before they were killed, and
he had also bought them a
puppy named Buddy.
When he found out about
their deaths, Demeniuk said,
"My heart dropped, my spirit
broke and emptiness consumed
Describing his life since the
day his sons were killed,
Demeniuk said he often hears
people talking about their chil-
dren and wishes he could partic-
ipate in the conversations.
He said he sometimes dreams
that the boys are still alive.

The Jacksonville Beach
Police Department has cleared
an officer of alleged miscon-
duct after a former City
Councilman complained about
the officer drawing a weapon
during a routine traffic stop.
Mitch Kinsey, who is retired
from the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office and a former
Jacksonville Beach Councilor,
complained to Officer Shane
Watson's supervisors that the
officer unnecessarily pulled out
a firearm after Kinsey refused
orders to remain in his vehicle
at a routine traffic stop.
Kinsey was stopped at 10
p.m. Jan. 20 at Fairway Lane
and Seabreeze Avenue for driv-
ing 15 mph above the posted
speed limit and failing to stop,
at a stop sign en route to an
alarm at his condominium,
according to a police report.
A departmental complaint,
generated by police after the
incident, also cleared Watson
of lying about Kinsey running
the stop sign.
The final review and report
were signed off Jan. 26 by
Police Chief Bruce Thomason.
Watson said he ordered
Kinsey to remain in his vehi-
cle, believing that he might be
an escape risk. Kinsey opened
the driver's door and was
observed reaching around his
back with his right hand,
prompting Watson to draw his
weapon for protection, accord'
ing to the report.'
"Officer Watson drew his
weapon in response to a per-
ceived threat. Mr. Kinsey's
furtive movement of reaching
behind his back was substan-
tial justification for Officer
Watson to pull his weapon in
preparation for an imminent
assault," note the findings of

actions by Officer Watson," the
Watson offered Kinsey the
opportunity to talk to
Thomason if he was not satis-
fied with the department's per-
formance but Kinsey declined,
also extending an expletive
toward the police chief.
Cdr. Gene Paul Smith, who
also responded to the scene,
jokingly asked if Watson had
stopped a city council member
when he heard Watson's
request for a supervisor.
Smith said Kinsey 'ques-
tioned his presence at the
scene and complained that he
just "wanted to be treated like
Smith said he called Forbes
to "give him a heads up imme-
diately about what had hap-
pened." During the call,. Kinsey
announced he had already
talked to Mayor Fland Sharp.
Sharp Tuesday said he
received a message from Kinsey
but he did not allude' to the
reason for his call. He said he
did not condone special favors
for any past or present elected
"My personal policy has
always been if I get stopped
whether it's for jaywalking or
speeding, I am supposed to be
treated just like everyone else,"
Sharp said. "That's not the way
we do business.We still have to
abide by the law. We still have
to abide by the law."
Sharp said he has received
two tickets during his tenure as
an elected official and the offi-
cers, who did not recognize
him, were courteous and,
"That's what I expect from
all of our guys," ,he said. "I
don't like to get traffic, tickets
but as long as I am treated well,
there is no heartburn involved.
Kinsey received, two traffic
citations for going 40 mph in a
posted 25 mph zone and fail-
ing to stop at the stop sign at
Seabreeze Avenue and Fairway
"The message is if you get a
traffic ticket, don't call the
mayor," Sharp said. "I can't do
anything about it and I won't
do anything about it."
Kinsey Tuesday said in a
telephone interview that he is
still shocked that Watson
pulled a gun during a traffic
violation but expected a subse-
quent report because an officer
must be able to prove his
actions, were justified if a
weapon is drawn.
"I said 'would you put that
pistol up before someone gets
hurt.' He .said he felt threat-

says. ; He's covering his

He questioned, however,
Why. the police" department
would launch an investigation
without his input.,
"It bothers me that no one
bothered to ask me anything to
do this investigation," he said.
"I told [Sgt. Robert] Bacon] that
I would call him back if I want-
ed to file a complaint and I
never did. I am 57 years old
and I have never filed a com-
plaint on a police officer."
Kinsey said he is also upset at
the allegations that he used
foul language during the traffic
"Talk to anyone who knows
me. I don't cuss, period," he
said. "That's what is so absurd
about this. I don't talk like

does not expect a different out-

More letters to the editor:
Subdividing can help
reduce home prices
To the editor:
What does "affordable hous-
ing" mean? Affordable in New
York is different from afford-
able in Jacksonville. To me it
means either you can afford
the neighborhood or you can't.
To most of us, this would mean
that Manhattan does not have
"affordable housing"; neither
does Malibu or Santa Barbara.
With no more vacant land at
the beach, some property own-
ers are looking at subdividing
larger lots. If there is an excep-
tionally large lot that can rea-
sonably accommodate two or
three houses instead of one,
this will not only provide more
housing, but the housing will
be more affordable. Perhaps
three homes priced at
$400,000 could be built instead
of one home priced at $1 mil-
We saw what happened
when one Atlantic Beach prop-:
erty owner dared to "destroy
the character" of the neighbor-
hood by trying to subdivide
her land. The same people who
lament the increase in housing
prices are the same ones who
do not want people to be able
to subdivide their property. I
guess "keeping the character"
of the neighborhood means
larger lots with more expensive
homes. This does not exactly
mesh with their calls for
If the character bf the neigh-,
borhood is that important,
then they should make the
owner a reasonable* offer to
purchase the property so that
they can manage it as they see
fit. But until they start paying
the mortgage and property
taxes, they have no say in how
it should be sold.

Push again for a high school at Mickler's
To the editor:
Now is.the time for all Ponte Vedra res-
idents to get involved with their future'
high school. If you attended the recent
meeting at Landrum Middle School on
Jan. 19, 2006, you heard [Schools super-
intendent Joseph] Dr. Joyner admit that
originally, he, the St. Johns County
School Board members, and the Ponte
Vedra High School Site Selection
Committee were all in agreement that the.
Guana site, now referred to as the Mickler
Road site, was the best site for the pro-.
posed new high school. He explained
that he changed his direction and began
to pursue the Talbots site after he received
signals from Tallahassee that the gover-
nor would not look' favorably on the
release of the Mickler Road site for the
new high school and the Tournament
Players Championship organization
advised that the TPC parking site was not
Yes, the Mickler Road site may have.
appeared to be a difficult site to obtain,
however, we all know that the "best"
course of action is often the more difficult
course to pursue, but the rewards are fre-
quently worth the effort. Without revis-
iting the obvious reasons why the Mickler
Road site is superior to the Talbots site, I
find it most difficult to understand why:
we as a community would not want to
pursue the "best" site for the new high
school to the bitter end, and why we
would be willing to settle for a much infe-
rior site. I also don't understand why
those charged with the responsibility for
finding the "best" site for the high school
would fail to pursue the "best" site until
every avenue to obtain that land has been
explored, every effort has been exhausted
and the Governor has officially and pub-
licly denied our request for the land that
would best serve our community's chil-
Do you really think the Governor
would say no to the Mickler Road site if
he had the facts presented to him and he
had to make a decision for the good of
our Community? [ for one do not think
the Governor would say no to the people
of Ponte Vedra if he learned all the facts
from our public officials and he heard the
voice of a umted 'Ponte Vedra
Bill Smedberg and others continue to
try to awaken our community to the
grave mistake that will, be made if we
don't go after the Mickler Road site for
the new high school immediately. In
fact, it appears at this point in time that
we are destined to either end up with'a
huge facility on inadequate acreage next
'to an overburdened lhghway or we will
get a high school located across the
Intracoastal Waterway in another com-
munity; or we can direct our united
attention to the Mickler Road site.
I believe the ball has been dropped and
valuable time has been wasted. Let us not
continue to drop the ball by letting
another day pass without getting person-
ally involved. It's time, for everyone to
visit the three proposed sites and see for
themselves what is being debated. Get
the facts and make up your own mind.
Then, let your elected and other public
servants, from the School Superintendent
to the Governor, know that you want the
"best" site for the new Ponte Vedra High
School and will accept nothing less.
It is time for each of us to let those
responsible know exactly how we feel on
this issue and what we expect them to do
for our community and the local chil-
dren. Yes, call and write Dr. Joyner, the
school board members, your county com-
missioner, your state representative and
senator, and the Governor. Remember,
you are paying their salaries, and our
local and state officials are in office to
serve us, the people.. Their decisions must
be made for the greater public good. Let
them know what you expect from them
so they clearly see the direction they must
take. Please get involved now to assure
the children of Ponte Vedra, get the new
high school they deserve.

Class gets nature lesson
by CHUCK ADAMS
,Muddy hands and big smiles were the'
order of the day Friday as Penny
Kennedy's kindergartners at Ocean Palms
Elementary School made their own ver-
sions of a bird nest.
The creation, of the bird nests, done
outside the school on Landrum Lane, was
the culmination of a lesson given by vol-
unteer Patti Gustafson.
Gustafson showed the 16 youngsters
different kinds of nests as they sat in
She used pictures of nests in books and
real-life examples of nests. She also
showed the youngsters what ingredients
the birds use to make their shelters.
The students then took what they had
learned and went outside, where the
ingredients for a child-made bird nest
were set up.
First, there was the mud big bowls of
gooey, gloppy mud that coated 32 little
hands as they worked to make 16 bird-
nest bases on strong paper plates.'
There were many' smiles as the kihder-
gartners got their hands dirty in the pur-
suit of knowledge.
Then, into the mud bases went differ-
ent configurations of grass, cotton bat-
ting and other nesting material.
After the nests were done, the students
were asked what bird might be expected
to make their creations a home.
Martine Gelb had made a robin's nest,
Kerin Kearolewicz's was for a blue jay.
Vanessa Regan had also made a blue jay's
nest, while Alyssa McClintock's was for a
"One of the advantages in the way Ms.
Kennedy chooses to teaches she uses
nature and she teaches through the envi-
ronment," Gustafson said.
"She teaches a lot of the concepts that
are required by the School District, but
she uses nature to teach them. She uses a
garden to help the children understand
the concept of measuring and math."
The kindergarten garden at Ocean '
Palms Elementary is funded by the Ponte.
Vedra Public Education Foundation. Eagle
Scout candidates have improved the gar-
den, using the work they have done for
their Eagle project.
"She has a wonderful way of,letting the
children spend time with activities,
rather than forcing them to run through
it," Gustafson said of Kennedy.

Linda Bernard of Ponte Vedra Beach organized and hosted this year's annual Spam Cook-Off Party, which she dubs "the social
event of the year." .

P onte Vedra resident Linda
Bernard organizes an
annual event that she
says with a smile is "the Social
Event of the Year."
Palm Valley Baptist
Church's Spam Cook-Off is a
party designed just for the fun
and the fel-
was a Spam in
Party given by
a friend from
a church she previously,.
attended. Changing the idea a
little bit, Bernard decided a
cook-off using the canned
meat product would be a great
Way to get people together.
More than 10 years later,
Bernard-'and her husband,.
John, enjoy the event as
much as when they started.
This is true despite the fact
that Spam is not on the menu
at their house many other
times during the year.
Bernard admits that there is
some "whining and complain-
ing" from the congregation
when plans for the cook-off
are announced every year.
Before long, however, peo-.
ple get caught up in the quest
for a suitable recipe to enter
in the competition.
According to Bernard's
"Spam Rules," each dish sub-
mitted for judging must have
Spam as an ingredient to be
eligible. Entrants can choose
from five categories: appetizer,
salad, vegetable, main dish,
The competitive spirit runs
high and people plan weeks in
advance to have a suitable
recipe. With a little imagina-
tion, many recipes have been
adapted to include Spam. Just
a few examples provided by
Bernard are Fettucini
Primavera, Quesadillas, Party,
Dips, and Cheeseballs.
The dessert category may be,
the most challenging, but
over the years there bave been
that have been
from a previ-
OCOOKS" was a Spam
Cake made .
with pineapple and Spam that
Bernard says was delicious.
Also part of the so-called
"Spam Rules" encourage
those attending to "savor"
every bite as they sample each
dish arid prepare to vote for,
the best recipes.
Winners are selected by vote
of everyone in attendance and
to keep everything fair each
dish is identified by number
Every year Bernard contacts
the public relations depart-
ment at the Hormel Co. for
prizes for the cook-off and
other materials for the party
and has been amazed at the
variety of Spam-related items
The company has sent items
including Spam aprons, hats,
T-shirts, mugs, cookbooks,
and a catalog full of Spam-
related items that can be

I attended Saturday's Rolex

of the media, and'pulled for
Haywood's No. 59 Porsche-

Haywood's car, sponsored

A series of unfortunate

Haywood's car had finally
cracked the top-15 and
seemed to be gaining on its
garage mate, the much faster

eventually finished fourth

Civil rights documentary at Flagler
"Dare Not Walk Alone: The
'War of Responsibility," a docu-
mentary focusing on the civil
rights struggle in St. Augustine,
%ill premiere Feb. 12 at 7 p.m.
in the Flagler College
The film examines' the inter-
actions of race, class, responsi-
bility, the civil rights 'move-
ment, the hip-hop generation,
as well as St. Augustine, then
and now. Film maker and.
Flagler alumnus Jeremy Dean
was inspired by his parents'
focus on missionary work.
"I, think I have a kind of
heightened sense of cultural
and racial issues," he said.
"When I came to school [at
Flagler], it never sat very well
with me going over to West
Augustine [a poor, predomi-
nantly black area west of the
train tracks near King Street]
and seeing the conditions
Dean faced many challenges
while completing his film
including trying to earn the
trust of the community 'he was
trying to document.
"I'm the young white guy
coming from the outside and
asking people to basically tell
their life story," he said. "It
takes some time."
Over time, Dean was able to
develop relationships' with
people who participated in
civil rights protests and others
in the West Augustine commu-
"There's still a lot of emo-
tional scars and a lot of dis-
tru'st," Dean said. "You don't
want to just go in there and use
them to make a statement. I'm
still very much involved with
all of them."
,, The premiere of "Dare Not
Walk Alone" will be held in the
Flagler College Auditorium
Feb. 12 at. 7 p.m.. This event is
free and open to the public.

Lecanto coach Kevin Towne,
who has been coaching for 18
years, was impressed by what
he saw in Nease.
"The ball movement that

said Towne, whose team fin-

Lecanto mounted what could
be considered just one serious
threat, at 23:55 of the second
half, with Hannah Marvin in

keeper Catherine O'Donnell.
With the Nease defense keep-
ing forwards Maggie Mueller
and Natalie Burnett at bay,
O'Donnell had just four touch-
es, two kicks and two throws,
that occurred without pressure
until being replaced by Marvin
at 33:14 of the second half.
"I was freezing," O'DonneU
said of her lack of activity on a
chilly night. "I didn't get any
shots. That's what I like,
though. If I don't have to touch
it, and we're shooting like

with me. Because we had so

record might be deceiving.

Signing day arrives for players
:By CHUCK ADAMS
A number of Nease football
players, including Charlie
Kirschman, Hunter Haynes,
Ryan Ellis, Doug Polochak,
Austin Silvoy, Daunte Owens
and Mannie Wellington, are
expected to sign with Division
I schools Feb. 1, which is
National Signing Day.
Quarterback Tim Tebow was
an early signee with Florida,
where he's already enrolled."
A signing ceremony is
scheduled for 10 a.m. Feb. 1 in

wide receiver spent his first
two years at Nease playing,
basketball. He continued to

football in the fall and was
elevated to varsity at the end
of the 2004 JV season:
As a junior, Silvoy wasn't

going to be that big a deal,"

Silvoy has made a commit-
ment to Troy [Ala.] University,
while Owens, a tailback, and
Wellington, a linebacker, have
chosen Florida International.
Troy and FlU are members of
the Sun Belt conference,
meaning Silvoy, Owens and
Wellington likely will see one
another on the football field
in the future.
Silvoy enjoyed his campus
visit to Troy, and the football
players he met. But there was
something else that got his

offensive coordinator from
Kentucky, Coach [Tony]
Franklin, and they will run

by Larry Blakeney, were 4-7
last year, 3-4 in the Sun Belt.

Q. Dr. Smith, my wrist
hurts when I fish. Casting
my. line, and reeling in is
painful along the outside of
my wrist and into my thumb.
What do you think this is?'
Based of your description of
outer (radial) wrist and thumb
pain with specific activities,
there are two common prob-
lems that come to mind. The
first is known as "DeQuervain's
syndrome" and 'refers to
inflammation of the tendon.
which controls extension or
raising of the thumb.
This tendon passes through a
tight tunnel across the, wrist,
and is subject to inflammation
due to constant rubbing with
activity which stresses the,
wrist.' Although this problem
may effect athletes such as'
golfers and tennis players, it
also effects those involved in
common daily activities.
Treatment for DeQuervain's
.syndrome typically begins
with oral medications, and per-
haps bracing to put the tendon
at rest. If symptoms continue,
an injection of a steroid such
as cortisone can be very benefi-
cial, and possibly curative. In
some circumstances however,
pain may continue despite
conservative treatment and
surgery will eliminate the
problem. Surgery consists of a
small incision directly over the
tendon, where the tunnel is
"opened up" to take away any
chance of any rubbing of the
tendon. This is an outpa-
tient procedure, and takes
about 30 minutes to perform. "
, The second common diagno-,
sis to consider with your histo-.
ry of pain is arthritis of your
hand, specifically where the
long bone on the thumb side
of your hand joins to the wrist,
known as the "first car-
, This joint can be subject to
high load' and stress with sim-
ple day to day activities, such
as opening a jar. Pain is felt
directly within the joint at the
wrist, and may radiate up the,
thumb. X-rays will help con-
firm the diagnosis. Once a
diagnosis is established, treat-
ment options include arthritis'
medications which help reduce
pain and inflammation. and
improve your function.
An injection of steroid into
the joint can be very, beneficial
as well, often providing
months of relief. If these
options fail to bring about con-
siderable relief, surgery can be
The take home message for
your should be that you very
well may have a "fixable" prob-
lem. However, you can't get
better if you don't get treat-
ment, so see your physician for

A new kind of runner's high
H ow much would you
pay for a pair of running
shoes? How does $250
sound? Pretty scary, huh?
Athletic shoe manufacturers
" M-li pushiiig up prices like never
before. Rising oil prices have, of
course, legitimately increased
the production costs of just
about everything and running
shoes that are made of nothing
but petroleum byproducts are
affected. Still, some of these
new price points are as unnec-
essary as they are absurd.
It is the old "see what the
market will bear" thinking run
While I was an athletic shoe
store buyer in the early 1980s, I
remember when a New Balance
salesman showed me the first
$70 running shoe. I couldn't
believe it, the established price
at the time was $29.99; the
expensive ones were $39.99. It
was impossible to control my
laughter as I exclaimed, "No
one will ever pay 70 bucks for a
pair of running shoes!"
Boy was I wrong. My crystal
ball must have really been
kaput that day. It took time but
consumers came 'round to the
$70 shoe and now look: You
can't even find a pair for that
price these days.
What's more, observe how
the mind works. If there were a
pair on the market, people
wouldn't wear it. They would
say that it was too cheap to be
Yes, the old $70 price point is
dead and gone. Survived, how-
ever, by his kid brother, the
$100 price ,barrier. It took an
understandably long time for
this usurper to take hold even
though a great many people
still find him unacceptable.
But still, there are a lot of
$100, $110 and $130 shoes out
there and people are buying
plenty of them despite the fact
that there is precious little dif-
ference between. the $85 and
the $110 shoes. Well, except
Adidas has just released the
world's first $250 running
shoe. You have probably read
about it. The shoe's selling
point is that it is a computer-
shoe. A computer chip in the
mid-sole of the shoe detects
when you have changed sur-
faces and adjusts the shoe's
"ride," its firmness or softness.
Now when you are running
down the beach you can jump
from firm waterlogged sand to
powdery loose sand and then
up to the cement of the board-
walk all without missing a
$250 stride. Just don't let the
salty tide swamp them or you
could be crying $250 crocodile
New Balance has had a $200
shoe out for four years or so but
nobody much bought it. I
guess it was ahead of its tune.
Perhaps now that $200 is made
cheap they'll be selling them
like the proverbial hotcakes.
Nike is touting the new Air
Max 360; a shoe the company
says is vastly superior because it
is "all air."
It may be more hot air than
anything else. Nike's marketing
boys are notorious for hyping
stuff to the airless stratosphere.
The 360 goes for a cool $165, a
new Nike record.
Market leader Asics has a
new gel model that they think
is worth $165 because it
"shows more gel." The shoe
displays the silicon jelly stuff
all over the heel. If you show
them the money, they'll show
you the gel.
Manufacturers are hoping
the unwitting consumer will
maintain his belief in the old
erroneous) adage, "you get
what you pay for." A sucker
punch if there ever was one.
So why the big difference in
prices? All of them are com-
posed of the same ingredients:
Nylon and vinyl, used primari-
ly in the uppers; ethyl vinyl
acetate referred to as eval, that
makes up the mid-soles; carbon
rubber, for durability at the
heel; some softer ("blown")
-ubbei that is used for the rest
of the outer sole and a few bits
and pieces of plastic here and
Manufacturers would have
you believe that if you pay
more you get a better shoe, a
Any truth in that? With the
higher-priced model you might
possibly feel a bit more shoe
beneath your feet. If so, and it
feels more comfortable, or is
more suited to your needs,
then buy it. If it doesn't, then
Some people think that if
you pay more for a shoe it will
last longer. Don't count on it.
The lifespan of all training
shoes is about the same, regard-
less of price, about 500 miles.
So if you run 20 miles a week
you can expect to be shopping
for a new pair in six or seven
* The fact is you can buy about
as good a running shoe as you
are likely to find for $80 to $95.
Unless you're in the mood to
throw money away there is no
need to do so and there is not
much need to buy a Rolls
Royce of running shoes.
The important thing is to use
a shoe that is correct for your
'foot structure and gait cycle,
not just to pay top dollar in the
belief that the priciest shoe is
the "best" shoe.
You need to go to a reputable
running shoe specialty store to
accomplish this. Don't be nerv-
ous, if you don't want to pay
!$100 or more just tell them so
up front. You can still buy the
right shoe at the right price
