for MSD sewers
by LAURA FOWLER
The Jan. 1 deadline for con-
necting to JEA's new sewer sys-
tem in the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(lNSDi is rapidly approaching,
and just over half of the 675
properties have connected.
Of the total, 357 had con-
nected by this week and an
additional 242 had paid the
connection fee one of the
first steps needed to connect -
leaving 76 properties still in
But contrary to what one
MSD trustee said at Monday's
MSD meeting, JEA will not
apply a minimum monthly
sewer charge to those who
don't meet the deadline.
"\Ve would not charge until
someone is actually connected
to our system," Greg Corcoran,
spokesman for JEA, said in an
Trustee Rob Becker said
Monday that lEA would start
sending out bills for a mini-
mum monthly sewer charge to
those who have not connected
by Jan. 1.
Corcoran said Thursday that
JEA has pledged to work with
customers who have not been
able to schedule a plumber, to
do the work.
Although state law requires
property owners to hook into a
sewer within one year after it is
available that one-year
deadline, August, was extended
to Jan. 1 IEA has no author-
ity to enforce that law,
Ocean Palms Elementary students bearing gifts for foster children (above) rush from
the school Wednesday toward vehicles that will deliver the goods. Sophia Lettuca
(right) carries a box full of gifts at the Landrum Lane school', where the program
began several years ago when a class of special needs children collected coins.
The program expanded, and a foundation was formed to benefit foster children at
the urging of Sandra Nasca of Ponte Vedra Beach, who has parented many foster
children over the years. The foundation, How 'bout a Hug for Foster Kids, counts
Ocean Palms as one of its regular benefactors, and this holiday season the school
will provide gift bags for nearly 60 children, with the Sawgrass Women's Club con-
tributing gifts for an additional 44 foster children.

Becker said Monday that the
county is willing to work with
residents who have shown an
intent to get connected.
John Schwab, special proj-
ects coordinator for St. Johns
County, said the county will
contact homeowners who have
not connected by the deadline.
"Sometimes people just
don't think about it," Schwab
said in an interview this week.

Because only a few plumbers
are working on the MSD proj-
ect, there is a long waiting list
for their services, Becker said.
He said the best thing to do
is have a written estimate or
contract from a plumber to
show that at least an attempt
to connect has been made.
He said the county also
understands the heavy costs
associated with connecting
and will work with residents

was $1,025 per household until,
that, increased to $1,274 on

PV couple on Jeb Bush's holiday cards

The couple, Glenn and Karen
Johnson, are featured in a work of

nor's holiday greeting card and cre-
ated by their granddaughter, Blake
Blake, 9, a Beaches Episcopal
School fourth grader, won the
Florida Pride Holiday Card contest,
putting the drawing on the cards.
Her artwork, titled "Together
Always Like Glue and Paper," was
one of 800 submitted by Florida
students in kindergarten through
"She's very excited," said Dana
Johnson, Bryant's mother and an
art teacher at Landmark Middle
School in Jacksonville.
"And we're excited to think that
the current President [George \V.
Bush] and a former President
[George H.W\V. Bush] will both be
receiving her artwork."
Bryant's likeness appears on the
card with those of her mother,
maternal grandparents and pets.
She's a sixth-generation Beaches
resident who comes from a long
line of teachers, among them her
grandfather, who teaches at
Wolfson High School, and grand-

"I was floored when she won,
competing with students almost
twice her age.
"I think it is important for the
community to see examples of how
electives [such as art] support and
reinforce core academic classes,"
"This contest required the stu-
dents to supply a written artist state-

wounded warrior, 20
by CHUCK ADAMS
Ponte Vedra Beach Rotarian
Jim Hoener wasn't aware of a
military support program
called the Wounded Warrior
Project until after a nephew
was critically wounded Sept. 27
But what followed led
Hoener to introduce Wourided
Warrior and its executive direc-
tor, John Melia, to the Ponte
Vedra Rotary Club at its weekly
meeting Thursday at Marsh
Landing Country Club.
"This is an opportunity to
bring some visibility to that
organization, to let people
know what is being done for all
of our critically wounded men
and women who serve in
harm's way," said Hoener,
whose nephew, Marine Lance
Cpl. John McClellan, 20, was
shot through the head by a
sniper in Haditha, Iraq
Hoener said McClellan was
given "very little chance to sur-
vive." That. prompted a call to
Dan McCarthy, Jacksonville's
director of veterans affairs, to
ask what Hoener could do to
McCarthy suggested a call to
The Wounded Warrior
Project began in 2003 in the

plans on manually checking each
pod, or sewer collection chamber,
to see how many homes are actual-

He said JEA fears plumbers may
be forgetting to notify them when a
connection is made.
Technically, once JEA approves a
plumber's installation of sewer
valves on the pods, the rest of the
connection to each home can ,be'
made, Corcoran said.C
Plumbers or homeowners are sup-
.posed to notify JEA when the con-
nection is made, and that may not
always be the case, he said.
Corcoran said residents with
questions about connection fees or
sewer charges should call JEA's

The Leader's Opinion
is not businesslike
If you had responsibility for a business, would you hire
someone you had never met to manage the enterprise?
No, probably not. It would not be a prudent or busi-
nesslike move to hire a stranger sight unseen.
Yet that is exactly what the St. Johns County
Commission did this week.
Three of the five commissioners voted Monday to hire
an interim county administrator.
Commission Chair Ben Rich asked Wally Kropacek, a
retired U.S. Customs agent and former campaign worker
for him, to fill the county's top administrative spot. He
convinced two other commissioners, Tom Manuel and
Ron Sanchez, to go along with him and ,hire Kropacek -
a stranger to the two- to oversee operations for up to six
months until a permanent replacement is found. ,
That is not how the public's business should be. done.
Kropacek, who was to begin work Wednesday, acknowl-
edged afterward he is a little rusty, but promised to get up
to speed. After the vote to hire him, he then met his new
To their credit, commissioners Jim Bryant and Cyndi
Stevenson strongly opposed the hiring. Both suggested
filling the interim slot with one of the assistant adminis-
trators who is familiar with county staff and procedures.,
That could have been done. Or Kropacek could have
been asked to meet the.commissionersand nd a vote could
have been postponed for a week. There is no county
emergency that requires an immediate hiie
In a blatant disregard for businesslike hiring processes,
the majority chose to accept Rich'sassurances that his for-
mer boss was a good choice. Maybe he is. but each com-
missioner should have made that determination inde-
pendently after careful review. That is how elected offi-
cials should conduct business -not rubberstamping a

Schools should stick to basics
To the editor:
I read with interest the letter
from a Mkfayport Middle School
teacher defending "Mix It Up"
Day against my earlier criti-
His first claim is that the pro-
gram was voluntary. The article
does not make this clear. Even
if it were, however, "voluntary,"
my criticisms would still
remain valid. In my experi-
ence, as a victim of American
public education, such pro-
grams are about as "voluntary"
as the Hitler Youth or the
Administrators and teachers:
have a million ways to pressure
a student to be involved, from
lowering grades on schoolwork
which is graded by subjective
'criteria, to ignoring his .ques-
tions in the classroom, or to
refusing to give the otherwise
deserving student his cheesy
"Honor Student" bumper stick-
I did not call the school an
"armed camp," as the writer
alleges. My objection was to
uniform members of the
American armed forces lending
the prestige of their uniforms
and their presence to an event
so perfectly un-American. The
use of military personnel, in
uniform, to encourage children
to engage in any particular
brand of "right thinking" is the
stuff of authoritarian govern-
ments, not free societies.
The writer calls this a "purely
innocent event." It is not that
at all, but is an' attempt to
indoctrinate students. Francis
Xavior, one of the leaders of an
earlier authoritarian period
called the Counter-
Reformation, said "Give me the
child until he is seven."
The people who gave us
"Mayport Mix It Up" Day
apparently feel that having the
child in seventh grade will suf-
fice. It is not the job of a tax-
payer-supported public school
to interfere with children's
thoughts about each other, no
matter how politically incor-
rect they may be. That is the
job of parents; If America still
remains a free country, it
means that (despite the best
efforts of the people who
brought us "Mix It Up" Day) a
Klansman, a Nazi, a
Communist, a follower of the
Nation of Islam, or a supporter
of Osama bin Laden all have
the right to bring up their chil-

Seasonal message set to song
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
Warmth and cheer are usual-
ly exemplified during the holi-
days and one Beach resident
has harmonized the senti-
ments in a Christmas song she
The song has been recorded
and is being sold in some local
Barbara Hubbard, an Atlantic
Beach resident of 12 years,
began writing poetry when the
events of 9/11 "struck a chord"
and compelled her to begin
writing poems for the first time
in her life.
"They just started coming to
me," she said of the poems,
explaining that the hour
before dawn is when she is at
her most creative.
Hubbard was so inspired by'
the kindness that flourished as
people banded together to help
the victims of 9/11 and their
families that she began to write
"The hero came out in every-
, .,- Tfc :,. g'eg-.

one," she said.
Hubbard, .who has been a
Realtor for 20 years, said she
strives to exemplify the grace
and generosity :she so much
admires in others, especially
the "everyday heroes" encoun-
tered during 9/11.
"It just makes, you want to
try harder," shie said, "Our
common days catch up with
For the past five years,
Hubbard said h.er writing has
become her passion and she
has written a variety of poems,
some of which have been pub-
lished. She was approached by
a recording studio to turn one
of her poems in to a song.
Hubbard selected two poems.
and sent them, in. Her song,
"There'll Always Be
Christmas," is ia testament to
her faith and reflects her out-
look on life, she said.
"Its just the feeling from my
heart. It's' what Christmas
means to me," she said.
The song begins with the
words "There'll always be
Christmas, fior there will
always be Jesus Christ," some-
*thing, which' she said she,
believes deeply and has taught
"I've always ;tried to raise my
children to r.iake sure Christ
stays in Christmas," she said.
The sorig is, not only about
Christmas, buikt it is also about
having faith, no matter where,
you are. Hul bard, whose for-
mer husband is a Vietnam vet-
eran, is deeply patriotic. One
of 'the reasons she. agreed to
work with thb recording studio
on the "Home for Christmas"
CD is that some CDs will be
sent to.soldie-rs in Iraq.
"You feel Inke you're doing a
little something," she said.
The record company chose
an artist and; Hubbard collabo-
rated with them to decide how
her song should be put to
music. The !ong is now sold in
some local stores and has been
sent to radio stations.
"I'm just thrilled to be a part'
of it," she sidd.

He had briefly toyed with
the thought of moving his
family cross country to take a
college coaching job in
But the timing wasn't right.
With few high school, foot-
ball positions open in Florida,

since 1974, had resigned him-

It was August 2002, six
months before Howard landed
at Nease High School; where
he is 41-10 overall with one
state title and one state run-
"I thought I was going to sit,
out a year and study football,
but I just couldn't do that,"
Howard,.who turns 54 in
January, -recalled in a postsea-
son interview this week.
"I had to coach.; The head
football job at Apalachicola
High was open so I took it.
When I got there, the field

only 13 kids out for football
and two dads were coaching
"I said, 'Dads, Ilove ya, but
go sit in the stands because-

"The origin of the whole

needed something to get the

No, Howard didn't turn
Apalachicola into a overnight

Sharks tasted victory only
once in 10 games in 2002, but
they definitely had some bite.
The school put up some big
numbers offensively, and man-

Panthers head coach
Howard threw his well-trav-
eled hat into the ring when
the Nease football job came
open in January 2003.
A few members of the Nease
selection committee ques-
tioned whether a 1-9 coach
with a wide-open offense
could turn around the for-
tunes of a Panthers program
that .was well on its way to
becoming a perennial loser.
But Howard got the job,
interesting enough on his
birthday, and then did what
he has always done: Play flat-
out on offense and treat the
players like they were his own
"So many offenses are a one-
tailback type and everybody
knows who is getting the
ball," Howard said.
"When the ball is snapped
at Nease, we're hoping you
don't know who's getting it.
And balance and tempo are
important to me.
"Balance means you can run
and pass and it also means
that you can go to this guy
and that guy. Some coaches
don't take into consideration
that there is a 25-second clock.
We have different tempos dur-
ing the game. Our goal is to
score 50 points and make the
defense throw up."
And Howard never runs a
play the same way in a game,
or in succeeding weeks for that
He's always tinkering or
window-dressing plays, always
keeping one or two set-up
plays in his back pocket for
just the right down and dis-
"It's not the same offense
from week to week," he added.
"Some coaches adhere to the
philosophy..that they are going
to run five plays and master
them. With us, what you see
in Week 1 is'different in Week
"When you say spread
offense, it can go from A to Z.
Some are no-huddle, some are
not. Our offense has always

took more big aerial shots
down the field. This past sea-
son, the Panthers ran a more
high-percentage passing attack
and mixed in more option
But the key is the no hud-
dle. It dictates the defense
and controls the tempo.
At Kenny, Howard ran a
more under-center spread
offense that dropped back into
the shotgun only 25 percent
of the time.
During his first three years
at Nease, record-setting quar-
terback Tim Tebow was in the
shotgun 75 ,percent of the
time. This past season with
junior Ted Stachitas at the
controls, Nease went to the
gun 90 percent of the time,
S"I've always been able to
adapt the offense to, the play-
ers I've got," he said.
"I didn't know we were
going to have Zach Tronti

what I had in Stachitas. He's a

the Stops will be at perfectly

sort of thing. But some of
them may be pre-set, like
maybe out in the woods or at
the abode of someone known
to us. The Stops could be
brief or they could be long;
maybe over half-an-hour if
we'are in the mood."
I swallowed hard and
inquired sheepishly: "What:
will be at these places that,
you call Stops?"
"That's for me to know and
you to find out," Quickly said
in a tone that made me want
to be the one to bolt. "But
this much I will tell you:
There will be beer, lots of it,
and camaraderie too, it'll

. My knees buckled, "Oh
please don't.talk of mind

thought to myself.
"You know how it started,
don't.you?" Quickly slyly
asked. "It began with a bunch
of British soldiers stationed in
Egypt years ago. It was, based
upon the old chase of the

Involved with planting at
this time of year. Be a good

about the necessity of daily

Today's article will again
be short. I want to offer a
few ideas for the gardener in
your life in the form of gifts.
For me, the best gift has
l'wvav. been in extra pair of
hands and feet to do some
of the jobs my husband and
1 simply are not able to per-
form any longer. And sec-
ond to that, having some-
one who can haul off plant
debris that would otherwise
form a mountain at my
curb! I live in a community
where we are not allowed to
leave yard trash curbside
except for the evening lust
prior to pickup.
Great for the neighbor-
hood's appearance, but quite
impractical, as I know many
of y'ou would agree. I miss
the ability to have a huge
compost pile where this
stuff would go; but so it
goes, and my yardman's
truckbed often,contains my
yard trash which he is then
able to take to his huge
piece of property somewhere
out there in the country.
He is a jewel and I will
not share h:m with you.
So, onto more practical
things such as gifts: Ones

always include my number

pruners, usually the curved
anvil type. About the size of
a good pair of scissors, these
puppies do tons of work,
and if the money is spent
on a decent pair, they will
not need sharpening, will
not rust, can fit into your
pocket, and do a multitude
of tasks. They even will
chop gigantic Landlubber
grasshoppeis into bits.
Another favorite of mine
is the longer handled
pruners for branches about
an inch or larger in diame-
ter, used frequently on my
crepes, vitex and angel
trumpets, all very vigorous
The instrument is called a
lopper, and to get a'good

Denzel plays smart copin 'Deja Vu'
"Deja Vu" is surely the
most ironic title of onre of
the best movies of the year.
The only way in which
this movie is formulaic is
that it resembles John
(1981), another Superb and
underrated thriller in which
the hero grasps at technolo-
gy to try and save a
Denzel Washington plays
vet another cop, but after
'Out of Time" and "The
Inside Man," what a treat to
see him play a 'smart' cop.
Here he's Doug Carlin, a
New Orleans ATF agent
called in to help find an
assassin-terrorist who set off
a bomb that killed hundreds
of people on a ferry.
Carlin is put on the case
because he has a way of
sniffing out relevant details.
This turns out to be
extremely helpful when the
New Orleans police are
shown to have technology
that can show, the where-
abouts of anybody, any-
where, three-and-a-half days
before a given event.
!* Carlin has discovered that
an innocent and now-dead
woman was a pawn in the
assassin's plot, so he has the
technologists look at her life
just prior to her death.
The late woman is, of
course, too beautiful for
words, and we're given long,
loving shots in which Carlin
beholds her gorgeousness.
At this point, you figure
that the movie will be a bar-
gain-rate version of "Laura"
in which a slack-jawed cop
falls in love with a dead
woman. And you wonder
why the brilliant techno-
geeks are letting this guy use
their up-to-the-minute soft-
ware to pursue some lurid
fantasy. And it is at precisely
this point that you have
gotten it all wrong.
I can't bear to give away
any more plot points.
Suffice.to say, the cop is far
smarter than we thought,
and so is the movie a film
with extremely thoughtful
ideas, that engages its audi-
ence instead of allowing
them to be passive viewers.
The last movie I can think
of that offered so many
clever concepts to chew on
was "Contact" (and that was
10 years ago).
"Dela \u" is worlds
removed from that sci-fi
gem, yet it has the same sort
of plot twists that come out
of left field and yet seem
wholly plausible when they
add up to the bigger picture.
For once, credit goes to
everyone. To screenwriters
Bill Marsilii and Terry Rossio
for writing such a satisfying
convoluted script. To direc-
tor Tony Scott, who (like his
brother Ridley) seems to be
making better movies in his
later years than he did two
And to stars Washington,
Val Kilmer (his best work in
years), and just about every-
one else in the sterling cast.
Like most viewers, I put
off seeing "Deja Vu" after
seeing middling reviews that
complained how convoluted
its plot is. I think a lot of
people have forgotten that
you can engage your brain
at a movie and still have a
great time with it.
"Deja Vu" is rated PG-13
for adult language, and
graphic images of violence.

Pindili has won almost every

which change every year and
usually include people in cos-
tumes, Holtsinger said.

D dressing up your holiday table is as simple as
taking a second look at a holiday standard -
Real Butter; With the addition of a few choice
ingredients, butter can take on an unexpected
but appetizing new flavor one that is sure to
have your guests reaching for more. Flavored
butters, both savory and sweet, are perfect for spreading on
breads, melting on vegetables and embellishing the main
dish, from turkey to steak.
Use the following recipes to incorporate some of the sea-
son's most popular ingredients and flavor combinations -
from fragrant clementines and sweet pomegranate to honey
sesame and marjoram shallot.
For additional flavored butter recipes and a short video
demonstrating how to make flavored butters, visit
Tips for Serving flavored Butters
Remember that you can make flavored butters ahead of
time and freeze them for up to one month.
Allow refrigerated crocks or containers filled with
flavored butter to sit at room temperature 15 minutes
Refrigerate flavored butter logs until chilled solid; slice
into 1/2-inch-thick rounds and arrange on a butter dish
prior to serving.
Dress up a butter log by rolling it in colorful chopped
nuts, fresh herbs or dried fruit before refrigerating.
Present flavored butter as a delicious hostess gift wrap
it up with a holiday bow and attach your favorite ways
for using the butter.

Around the Home
Finding gifts that stand out a challenge
W hen Christmas rolls
around, finding the
gift that stands out
can be a challenge.
Over the course of this past
year, I've written topics rang-
ing from in-home massage
rooms to outdoor showers.
Many of these had items
that can help you fill out your
shopping list and some are
items I truly love. Best of all.
they re a far cry from the
usual holiday gifts.
1. Towel warmer. Just like a
swimming pool, a towel
warmer is a decadent luxury
to someone who doesn't have
one and a must-have for
someone who does. Another
plus? No more cold, damp
towels. Put your bathrobe
around it and it wjll be snug-
gly warm on a chilly morning.
1. Martha Stewart's
This weighty tome answers
everything you wanted to
know about homekeeping.
Just like the Joy of Cooking,
Handbook is a good all-
around home reference book
that every home should have.
3. Massage table. If you
know someone who gets regu-
lar massages, nothing could
be better than having a per-
sonal massage table to use at
home. No more driving away
from a massage appointment
a greasy, slimy mess. A decent
table runs between $100 and
-1. Eureka Quick Up Cordless
Stick Vacuum. This is a god-
send that I use every single
dav and wouldn't live with-
out. At $29 it's a bargain for
the amount of clean it can
give you oil both hard and
5. Fun at the door.
Beautiful doors can be ruined
Sb a "ding-v" doorbell.
Instead, why not go for fun?
Musicaldoorbell.com sells a
doorbell with over 100 pro-
grammable sounds and
chimes. Live on a ranch?
Make your door "moo" when
someone comes. Trophy
hunter? An elephant trumpet-
ing could signal the arrival of
guests' It's fun and only
6. Fountain. Whether it's a
simple whisky barrel or a
more elaborate waterfall, hav-
ing a fountain around the
house creates a relaxing and
enjoyable sound and they're
beautiful to look at. I have a
fountain at the front door and
in the backyard and the
minute I hear them, I relax.
7. DVR. This will revolu-
tionize the way you watch TV
- and that's not an over-exag-
geration. Simple recording is
the biggest benefit. Most can
record just by selecting a show
and pressing "R." Anyone can
do it. Check with your local
satellite or cable service or
purchase a Tivo system from
an electronics store. It's the
electronic must-have for this
8. Luggage rack. If "ou have
guests often, buy a luggage
rack from your home and
linen store. They cost about
$40, but a real back saver for
your guests and they make
the guest room look neater,
too. Again, it's one of those
things that if you don't have,
it doesn't seem important. If
you do have it, you can't live
9. Custom items. Every
A massage is great but a massage at home is incredible. Put a massage table on your holiday shopping list for the massage
enthusiast in your life.
home needs something hand-
made and custom. This year
my handmade item was a
beautiful custom-sized pasta
Or, turn your photos into
paintyourlife.com, or check
with your local photo shop.
Custom items are extra special
and aren't as expensive as you
10. Family Handyman mag-
azine. This magazine is a
wonderful gift for both
women and men. It features
all kinds of handy things to
make, clever ideas for the
home, and even shows igulpi
women using power tools. I
look forward to it every
month as much than my
Food & \Wine magazine.
This year, put your living
space on your shopping list.
A gift for your home is always
appreciated and is more likely
to be something you'll use
regularly making it even
that more special.

HEEL FIX Most women
have been in this predicament.
You're walking along and sud-
denly, your heel breaks off
Vour shoe. I'm always prepared
tor this eventuality. I carry a
tube of super bonding glue in
my purse. I use it to glue the
heel to the shoe. I then slip on
the shoe and apply pressure
with min foot until the heel
holds. Karen Z.
CLOTHES ENCOUNTER -
Like most kids, m- children
aren't exactly thrilled when
thev receive clothes for
Christmas or birthdays.
However, my sister came up
with a great idea. If she gives
them clothing, she slips little
goodies into the pockets, such
a, loose change, small toys, etc.
tie kids are always delighted.
DINNER SHORTCUT -
W\hien I'm pressed for time and
need to get dinner on the table
in a hurry, I stop at the local
supermarket on my way home
frion work. I then pick up vari-
ous vegetables at the salad bar.
Since they're already washed
and chopped. it makes it a lot
easier for me to prepare the
meal with little fuss and cuts
down'on prep time. Ella D.
HOW SWEET IT IS It's
inevitable that honey will crys-
tallize over time. However, that
doesn't mean it's rancid. To get
the honey back to usable con-
sistency, place the unopened
jar in a pot of simmering water
(one inch over a very low
.flame After it's cool, you can
use it as you normally would.
It will take several weeks for it
to harden again, but you can
repeat the process. If you like,
use the microwave, on high, at
intermittent 10-second inter-
vals. Beatrice A.
