Roundtable

will hear a

report from

the county's

interim chief

LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
After just four weeks on the
job, interim County
Administrator Wally Kropacek
will speak about his progress in
the position at a meeting of the
St. Johns County Civic
Association Roundtable
Monday.
Kropacek said in a phone
interview Tuesday that he
plans to talk about the direc-
tion in which the new board is
headed, which is "basically try-
ing to tighten up the purse
strings."
"The main focus that I'm get-
ting is just trying to focus on
the taxpayers' dollar s,"
Kropacek said.
He said he is depending on
the county's department heads
to help him with this task by
identifying any duplication of
jobs.
So far no duplicates have
been found, but some depart-
ment heads have identified
areas that could be more effi-
cient, Kropacek said.
No layoffs are anticipated, he
said, because there are staff
shortages in some depart-
ments.;
If anything, some rearrang-
ing might be in order, he said.
Kropacek said his "training
period" as the interim adminis-
trator is pretty much over, but
he continues to learn some-
thing new every day.
"I feel like for the six months
that I'm here I'm going to be
learning something every day."
The Roundtable meeting
begins at 9 a.m. in the main
branch of the St. Johns County
Public Library System in St.
Augustine.

Derek Coghlan does not rec-
ommend his new one-man
show to the youngsters at
Landrum Middle School,
where he teaches.
"I tend to talk about alcohol
a lot," Coghlan said about his
show scheduled 8 p.m. Friday
and Saturday at Players By-
The-Sea, Jacksonville Beach.
That and some spicy lan-
guage make it OK for adults
and high schoolers but "cer-
tainly not for middle school,"
said Coghlan, who has taught
language arts at Landrum since
1997.
Drawing on his roots in
Castlepollard, which he
describes on his Web site as "a
small town in the middle of
nowhere in the middle of
Ireland," Coghlan uses the
absurd, some tongue-in-cheek
and other modes of humor to
entertain. -
The show's title "Tog Out!
You're On!" comes from the
mouth of soccer coaches in
Ireland, who used the expres-
sion to move players off the
bench.
Loosely translated, it means,
"Get ready! You're goin' in!"
Coghlan said.
"Later on, when we were
about to do something really

stupid . you'd look at one
another and say, 'Tog out.
You're on,' he said in a tele-
phone interview Tuesday.
Coghlan, 37, said his show
is a mix of pieces that reflect
his life as one of four siblings
growing up in small-town
Ireland, where pubs, which
welcome families, are the cen-
ter of social life.
"We don't have this whole
stigma associated with alco-
hol," he said. "It's just a way of
life."
Also on tap is a piece about
potatoes.
"It's really about the impor-
tance of the potato in Ireland
and in the world," he said,
tongue apparently placed firm-
ly in cheek.
The performance "is more a
celebration of the overall life of
Ireland, of the stories and the
enjoyment that comes out of
it."
Coghlan said his new show
does not draw from his reper-
toire of "stories and rants" that
are some of his most requested.
Among those, listed on his
site (derekcoghlan.com) are a
"ludicrous" but true tale of bor-
rowing an egg from the parish
priest and "an imaginary
drunkfest with Jesus and the
advice he gives me under the
influence."

Despite grumblings about
excessive county spending and
attempts to cut costs recently,
St. Johns County commission-
ers agreed Thursday to pay an
executive search firm $19,000
to. find a permanent County

"The fee is not bad at all for
what you're getting," Peters
told commissioners Thursday.
Peters said he researched the
hiring methods of other coun-
ties and municipalities
throughout Florida and found
that most searches took six to
11 months.
Colin Baenziger told com-
missionleis Thuisday that his
company could find a perma-
nent administrator in a little
over four months.
Of the 32 cities and counties
in Florida that most recently
have used executive search
firms for hiring administrators
and managers, Baenziger said
his company was hired by 24
of them.
"I'm very predisposed to
recruitment firms," said
Commissioner Tom Manuel,
who ran recruiting services at a
bank he once worked for.
"They [recruitment firms] are
very cost effective over time."

According to Peters,
Baenziger and Associates plans
on beginning its search today.
The first step, Baenziger told
commissioners Thursday, is
speaking with each commis-
sioner about who they are as
individuals, what sort of
administrator they want and
what issues are affecting the
county now.
"We need to know who's
going to fit well with you,"
Baenziger said.

and actively
recruiting candidates through
networking, Baenziger said.
Then the company will do
an extensive background check
on the top 10 to 12 candidates,
he said.
This includes checking their
references, conducting internet
and newspaper searches, run-
ning credit and motor vehicle
checks, and verifying their edu-
cation.
Out of that group, the com-
pany recommends four or five
candidates and provides com-
missioners with all the infor-
mation found on each of them,
Baenziger said.
Finally, the company con-
ducts what is called an "inter-
view weekend." The candidates
and the public are invited first
to a reception, where commis-
sioners will get the chance to
meet the applicants in a social
setting.

A mediator trying to resolve
a dispute between the city of
Neptune Beach and Wal-Mart,
whose proposed superstore was
denied by the city, has con-
cluded that Wal-Mart's plans
meet traffic requirements.
The issue of traffic concur-
rency in which a develop-
ment's expected traffic must be
handled by existing roads or
improvements led in part to
the City Council's denial in
September of Wal-Mart's plan
to build a 117,000-square-foot
store at 630 Atlantic Blvd.
But the special magistrate
assigned to try to reach an
agreement and avoid a lawsuit
has concluded that Wal-Mart's
proposal does meet traffic con-
currency.
In a preliminary report based
on hearings in November, spe-
cial magistrate Carlos Alvarez
said the property owner,
Lakeshore Village, was correct
in using a law governing
"urban redevelopment" in its
traffic calculations.
The city had said that


because Wal-Mart would not
occupy the "same building
footprint as the existing shop-
ping center structure," the pro-
posal is not urban redevelop-
ment, according to Alvarez's
report issued last week.
Alvarez, however, deter-
mined that the law is applica-
ble and that the concurrency
requirements are met.
The Neptune Beach City
Council is scheduled to meet at
6 p.m. Tuesday to discuss the
mediator's preliminary find-
ings. The' recommendations
are not binding on either part'.
Another sticking point -
whether the proposed structure
meets the city's design require-
ments did not get a recom-
mendation in Alvarez's report.
He has asked for another
mediation session with both
sides to further discuss the
design and building placement
concepts no later than Jan. 19.
According to the preliminary
report, Alvarez in his final find-
ings will say whether the city
was "unreasonable" or placed
on unfair burden on the use of
the Lakeshore property.

This is "to make sure that
person is not a wallflower,"
Baenziger explained.
Then, the next day the can-
didates will go through two rig-
orous interviews with commis-
sioners before they make the
final decision.
Baenziger said he even guar-
antees his work: if, within a
year of being hired, the new
administrator doesn't work
well in that position, his com-
pany will conduct another
search at no cost to the county.


Baenziger said he usually
returns to each client in six to
eight months anyway, to make
sure everything is running
smoothly.
Former commissioner Nick
Meiszer told commissioners
Thursday that he was glad to
see that they were supportive
of the executive search firm.
But he said he hoped they
would let other search firms
submit bids for the job so as to
find the best price.
"There are many other firms
that would give you a much


better presentation," Meiszer
said.
"This [presentation] was sec-
ond rate to say the least."
Meiszer said the idea that
Peters would bring only one
firm for the commission's con-
sideration is "outrageous."
In an effort to get the search
started right away, however,
the commission agreed to trust
Peters' recommendation.
"It's Mr. Peters' job to make
these sort of decisions for us,"
Manuel said.


Donner Park programs draw


praise from parents, participants


by LEOPOLD CLARKE
CONTRIBUTOR
As a little girl, Vashawna
Thomas was constantly engaged
in activities at Atlantic Beach's
Donner Park Community
Center. Today, the 21-year-old,
Thomas is a student at the
University of North Florida and
credits the time she spent at the
center for preparing her to suc-
ceed in today's society.
"The various activities and
sport programs held at the
Donner Park Community
Center helped me to develop
determinism, stay focused on
my school work, and set my
goals in life," Thomas said.
She is one of many people
who have taken advantage of
the opportunities provided by
the Donner Park Community
Center.
Donner Park Community
Center is located in the Marsh
Oaks area and it consists of over
five acres of parkland. Donner
Park has a full basketball court, a
softball field, a large sanded
playground area, and a
Community Center. The park is
shaded by giant oak and pecan
trees and is home to many of
the city's community activities.


The community center has
many activities that people can
join on a daily basis, such as a 4-
H Club, basketball leagues,
cheerleading, homework assis-
tance, tutoring, senior activities,
* and a GED-assistance program.
For more information on activi-
ty dates or events contact the
community center at 904-247-
5851.
The community center. was
established in 1992, when
Atlantic Beach Police Chief
David Thompson received a
grant from city government.
According to Thompson, he
wanted to set up a community
center in the neighborhood so
children would have some-
where to go after school to stay
out of,trouble.
With the grant money, he
rented a double-wide trailer and
put it in an open field in
Donner Park. He also used some
of the grant to get equipment
for the center.
Over the years, the communi-
ty center has sponsored various
activities in Donner Park..
During one of those events,
the city commissioners attend-
ed and subsequently decided to
authorize the land nearby and


construct a new building, which
was completed in 1997.
To this day, the community
center is a place where children
can go after school to get caught
up on homework and to be
involved with the activities that
are held throughout the year.
Gail Baker has been the activ-.
ities coordinator of the commu-
nity center for more than 14
years. According to Timmy
Johnson, the director of parks
and recreation for the City of
Atlantic Beach, she does an
excellent job of running the
community center and creating
new programs for people of all
ages.
She also helps people at the
community center on a daily
basis, by providing them with
tutors and guiding people with
advice that they can use to
make good decisions through-
out their daily lives, he said.
"I stayed at the community
center for so long because it was
more to me than just a building,
it was like my second home,"
Baker said. "I would love to stay
as the activities coordinator for
many more years because I
enjoy helping people and I
watched children grow from


kids to young adults."
The most rewarding part
about her job as the activities
coordinator, she said, is under-
taking charity work for the com-
munity. This include things
such as providing Thanksgiving
baskets, organizing. Christmas
drives, .and helping people who
are less fortunate.
Donner Park Community
Center teams have won many
tournaments and awards over
the years. The community cen-
ter won first-place trophies in
sports such as kickball, flag foot-
ball, basketball, softball and
cheerleading. In addition, the
children at the center have won
spelling bees and brain brawl
tournaments against children
from other community centers
in Jacksonville.
Natasha Smith is only one of
the many parents who praise
what the community center has
done for the neighborhood.
"I think the community cen-
ter is a great place for my chil-
dren to get their homework
done and to meet other kids,"
Smith said. "I also appreciate


how the community center
brings the best out of people in
the neighborhood and there
need to be more places like this


throughout the
Jacksonville."

OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH

A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY

NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES


Locally Owned and Operated m Serving the Beaches since 1963


January 3, 2007


THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER


Resolve to be neighborly


To the editor:
It is the time of year when
many folks get the urge to stop
and consider their lives; start
the new year fresh with a firm
resolution to change some-
thing in a positive way. Just in
case you haven't thought
about it, I have a few resolu-
tions that many folks ought to
consider.
1. It sure would be nice if
the folks who live at the Beach
would all resolve to be a bit
more considerate about park-
ing. Life is more informal
down here and it may come as
a surprise to many to learn that
the Beach does not have park-
ing lanes on the streets and
avenues of our community! So
every time our guests park in
the street in front of our
homes, they are actually in the
drivers' right-of-way. When
two large vehicles park in the
street across from each other,
there isn't room for another
large vehicle to pass between;
those folks have to go around
the block to get off their own
street. When a guest parks the
wrong way for the lane direc-
tion within 4 feet of a stop
sign, a driver must stop in the
wrong lane. People don't
expect someone to be sitting in
the wrong lane at a stop sign;
I've seen a few near misses
when someone else was trying
to turn in to a street with a
parked vehicle in front of the
stop sign and a driver sitting in
the wrong lane. Some guests
try to get up in the homeown-
er's yard but must not be good
parkers because the rear half of
their vehicles poke out in the
road, consuming the drivers'
right-of-way. Poor parking
manners make it needlessly
difficult to navigate. How
about a firm resolution to look
at your guests vehicles to make
sure they are parked as far off
the street as possible? My
guests don't seem to mind,
especially when I tell them I
sure would hate to see their car
get scratched or banged up by
someone trying to drive down
r,the.street...
2. It sure would be nice if
the recycle and garbage pickup
up people would resolve to
leave the trash cans and recy-
cle bins in the yards where
they picked them up and not
in the street or in the middle of
the driveway where the home-


owners need to park. I don't
expect the bid contractor to
make a New Year's resolution
to do that but I bet if the City
resolved to fine them 2.00 for
every can left out in the street
we'd see some improvement.
3. It sure would be nice if
the bicycle riders would
resolve to follow the rules of
the road when they ride. It is
my understanding that bicy-
cles are supposed to follow the
same rules as cars travel in the
same direction; stop at all stop
signs; indicate by some sort of
signal their intention to
change lanes, turn, cross the
street; and ride single-file, just
like the cars drive. And for
those who ride their bikes on
the sidewalks, how about some
sort of warning to the pedestri-
ans when they shoot past
them? Especially older people
who might not hear the bike
approaching.
4. It sure would be nice if
the increasing number of folks
who walk their dogs around
the streets and avenues of our
community would all resolve
to' be more diligent about
pooper-scooper rules. Nothing
more irritating than a run out
to your mailbox in your slip-
pers, not noticing that pile of
poop at the edge of your yard.
I thought the Beach had some
sort of ordinance that made
scooping mandatory but I
could be wrong there, from the
looks of things in our neigh-
borhood. Maybe a personal
resolution would do it.
5. It sure would be nice if
the young party people would
all resolve to voluntarily turn
down the music at around 9 or
10 pm in these quiet little
neighborhoods. It may come
as a surprise to the young peo-
ple, but not everyone who
lives at the Beach is young and
wanting to party. Some of us
are old, been here for 30 years,
and need to go to sleep much
earlier than the young folks.
To sum up, in a small com-
munity with a steadily increas-
ing population, it -becomes a
necessity to use good: manners
and to have some considera-
tion for the other people who
live on your street. How nice it
would be if we could all resolve
to be better in that area in the
coming year.

I still enjoy a PB&J sandwich


- just without the peanut butter


bout five years ago my
face started breaking
out like a teenager.
Cleansers and creams were
prescribed but I still looked
like an upper demographic
poster child for Clearasil. A
few. months back I saw
Doctor Houston, a dermatolo-
. gist. "Hoyle I believe your
problem is due 'to an allergy,
probably a food or drink that
you consume almost daily."
I told the doctor that I
always had wheat toast,
orange or grapefruit juice,
chicken or fish and coffee!
"Tell you what, if I'm allergic
to coffee, then Houston,
we've got a problem!" He told
me I could continue my
addiction to caffeine, because
itwas more likely 1 .ws hay-
ing a reaction to the wheat. I
asked. my Doctor if white
bread was right for me. He
wanted to see me again in one
week.
Next visit with ol' Doc
Houston showed no improve-
ment. "Excuse me for being
nosy Hoyle, but what's that
sticking out of your shirt
pocket?"
Fumbling around in my
pocket I smiled, and said. "Oh,
you mean these peanuts. I
always have a bag or two for
my mid morning snack! Look
at this, low in carbs and high
in protein! Plus I love them,
always have! I also keep some
salted in the shell peanuts at
home that I snack on in the
afternoon."
The doctor held out his
hand, "Give me the peanuts
Hoyle, I think we found your
allergy! Lay off of them for

one week, then I want to see
your face again, hopefully
cleared up."
Gripping what was shaping
up to be my last bag of
peanuts I protested, "But Doc,
I've been eating these since I
was a toddler! My first three
words were Mommy, Daddy
and Planters!"
Doc Houston patiently
explained to me how allergies
can come after years of con-
suming something. I handed
him my snack and turned to
leave with what I felt would
be good news and bad news.
We had discovered why I was
complexion challenged and
the culprit was... "Wait a
minute Doctor, does this
mean peanut butter too?" He
responded with the most evil
nod I had ever seen!
The allergy was indeed
peanuts and my complexion
cleared up completely. I'd
like to tell you that the face of
a recovering peanutaholic
lived happily ever after, but I
can't! In early December my


current and final wife,
Dianne, came home from
work. "Oh Hoyle, you went
back on peanuts didn't you?
You fell off the wagon after all
these months!"
I was prepared for this lov-
ing intervention so I handed
over the bag I had been
snacking from. -"But Hoyle,
these are all natural kettle
cooked potato chips. Don't
tell me you had a reaction to
potatoes! Look, these are
organically grown, with light
salt added and cooked in
pure....pure peanut oil!"
Dianne went to the pantry
and pulled out the new pret-
zels I'd bought. They were
prepared on the same equip-

cdi.oyYered our c u pboaid was
an unintentional haven for
products with peanut warn-
ings The dark chocolate cov-
ered espresso beans that I had
been munching on since
Thanksgiving were "flavor
intensified" with peanuts!
About five days later I was
totally cleared up again. I
now read the ingredients
label on everything from
condiments like mustard to
soups and frozen dinners.
I've found peanuts in flavored
pop corn, breakfast bars,
crackers and salad dressings. I
also have to inquire at restau-
rants about what their dishes
are cooked in or with.
I'll tell you what, living in
Georgia and being allergic to
Peanuts is like living in New
York City and being allergic
to rude people! In either situ-
ation, you just can't get away
from them.


Love learning more about Egypt


Antiquities can be allur-
ing to young people,
judging from the
Cummer Museum's Egyptian
exhibit and the Beaches
schools outreach program
tied in with it. I reckon the
museum and our schools
couldn't have picked a more
fascinating. civilization to
study.- -The displays and the
schools' involvement was the
subject of an article in the
Leader issue of December 29.
Indeedy, I'll bet the kids
who probed it will stay spell-
bound by the ancient culture,
as I have, even though there
were no skateboards and
MTV. Some youngsters could
end up in Egypt on a future
vacation, exploring the pyra-
mids and the Sphinx on loca-
tion and asking themselves in
wonderment, "Am I really
here?" However, Beaches
folks going there should note
a crucial caveat.
The U.S. State Department's
Consular Information Sheet
(on the Internet at
travel.state.gov) contains
much recommended reading,
including this warning:
"Driving in Egypt, a country
with one of the highest inci-
dences of road fatalities per
miles driven in the world, is a


VW7zj.;'

HARDEBECK

challenge... .Any visiting
Americans thinking about
driving in Cairo should care-
fully consider the options,
take the utmost precautions,
and drive defensively."
Unfortunately, Egyptian
taxis can be scary. At Cairo, I
had a driver who should have
been a jet jockey in Egypt's air
force. If I'd had a parachute, I
might have bailed out. Better
to use transportation con-
nected to a hotel or tour com-
pany.
Next, some advice appar-
ently not issued by our gov-
ernment: how to get on and
stay on a camel. Unwary U.S.


tourists can make an
unscheduled flight without a
plane ticket if they aren't
careful. Since the "seated"
animal's back end rises first,
the rider should lean back to
avoid being launched over its
head. Then, when the front
end comes up, the potential
human cannon ball should
lean forward to keep from fly-
ing backward. Hey, you could
walk (or limp) a mile (or 20)
without a camel!
Another "don't'!: Do not
accept an invitation to climb
or, more precisely, crawl, up a
pitch-dark, cramped tunnel in
the middle pyramid at Giza,
especially if you aren't athlet-
ic or are claustrophobic. It's
only fit for bats, and any
human who knowingly ven-
tures in there IS bats.
Regretfully, I wasn't fore-
warned.
In The British Museum,
source of the ancient art treas-
ures in the Cummer exhibit, I
was happy to see evidence
that antiquities addicts can
also have a sense of humor.
Scrawled on the wall was the
following (fake) message:
"King Tut, please call your
mummy."

So there: three people who
knew James Brown. I'm sorry I
don't have comments about
Michael Jackson, but I asked
David Cannon about the
comparison.
"No," he said, "you can't
compare him with Michael
Jackson."
I think I'll leave it at that.

PHIL HUDGINS
COLUMNIST

According to

those who

knew him,

there's no

comparing

James Brown

to anyone


Jimmy Baron, a former co-
host at 99X, a radio sta-
tion in Atlanta, comment-
on James Brown's life in an
Atlanta newspaper last week.
He wrote:
"Am I the only one who
finds it odd that Michael
Jackson, who has never been
found guilty of one charge
filed against him, is still con-
sidered a social pariah, yet
Brown, who was arrested on
numerous weapons, drug and
assault charges and was
imprisoned from 1988 to
1991, is being heralded as a
hero?"
My first thought was that
comparing James Brown and
Michael Jackson was like com-
paring apples and nuts. But I
really didn't know James
Brown, so I called a few peo-
ple who did:
David Cannon, Brown's
business manager for 22
years, of Barnwell, S.C., where
the singer was born in 1933:
"He was generous and had a
big heart, and that was proba-
bly his biggest downfall, as far
as giving everything he had
\away. He wasn't An angel.
None of us are. But you won't
find many people who are as
generous as he was."
One time in Los Angeles,
Cannon said, he and Brown
were walking along the street
when they met a blind man.
Brown opened his wallet and
pulled out a hundred dollars.
"He looked at me and said,
'You match that and give it to
him.' He just did things like
that."
Brown, Cannon said,
"helped folks around the
world. I have traveled with
him too many times and seen
what he's done around the
world that people don't even
know anything about."
Colonel Joe H. Zorn, retired
game warden in Barnwell,
S.C.: James Brown certainly
was not a conceited man, he
said. "He was just a common
man. You'd never know. he
had a penny, and he worked
hard at what he did."
When Brown came to
Barnwell, he always visited
Zorn and even offered him a
job as a bodyguard. "But I did-
n't want to travel 'that much,"
Zorn said.
Brown was a humble man
who didn't forget his friends,
Zorn said. "He was a real gen-
tleman."
Ross Willis, news editor of
The Toccoa Record in Toccoa,
Ga.: Willis was sitting at
home one Saturday in January
2004 when the phone rang:
"This is James Brown," the'
caller said.
"James Brown who?" Willis
asked.
Yes, it was the Godfather of
Soul himself, in town to
attend the funeral of Sylvester
Keels, a member of Brown's
first band. A friend of Willis'
had asked the singer if he
would consent to an inter-
view. Brown said sure and
called Willis himself.
After the funeral, Brown
and Willis sat in the back seat
of the singer's limousine and
rode around Toccoa for two
hours. "We talked about
everything. He was incredibly
friendly," Willis said. "He was
not at all what I expected."

can this 95-pound 'wbrria'n
leave such a big hole?" Vann
will be greatly missed by her
family and friends, the family
said.

are right:

Xmas lights

should come

down soon
FROM CONTRIBUTOR
Now that the holidays are
over, take down your decora-
tions and start the New Year
safely, advises the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA)
and Underwriters Laboratories
Inc. (UL), the not-for-profit
product safety testing organiza-
tion.
According to the NFPA, 20
percent of home fires attrib-
uted to Christmas trees occur
in January.
"Christmas trees can be a sig-
nificant fuel source if a fire
occurs in your home," said
Lorraine Carli, NFPA assistant
vice president of communica-
tions. "Dried-out trees burn
easily and should not be left in
a garage or placed against the
house. We recommend you
remove your tree from., he
home and dispose of it proper-
ly as soon as your Christmas
celebration ends."
"Even well-watered trees dry
out after four weeks," John
Drengenberg, consumer affairs
manager for UL, explained.
Carli and Drengenberg also
remind celebrants that
Christmas trees aren't the only
holiday decorations that need
prompt attention after the hol-
idays.
"Leaving your decorations
out for several months or even
all .year not only aggravates
your neighbors," Carli said,
"but it also leaves the wires
exposed to rain, snow, cold, the
sun, squirrels and birds longer
than intended by the safety
standards."
"Many people don't ,realize
that 'holiday-light -shoi lA 6iff.y
be- 'if -f6or a llinited' time,"
Drengenberg continued, "The
safety standards are developed
anticipating a maximum of 90
days of use per year because
these decorations are consid-
ered seasonal. If you leave dec-
orations out any longer, the
resulting damage could cause
an electrical shock or a fire haz-
ard."
As you unplug and store your
lights whether indoors or out-
doors remember the safety
precautions you take now can
prevent hazards from occurring
next season.
Following is a checklist of
safety tips that are not only
helpful to stay safe as you take
down your holiday decora-
tions, but are useful all year-
around:
-When .using electrical toys
or appliances for the first time,
carefully read and follow all
instructions in the manufactur-
er's use and care booklet. Make
sure electrical toys and appli-
ances have the UL Mark.
*Use the gripping area pro-
vided on the plugs to unplug
electric decorations. Don't pull
plugs from electrical outlets by
the cord. Yanking or tugging
on the- cord can damage the
cord's wire and insulation and
could lead to an electrical
shock or fire.
-When putting away electri-
cal light strings, take time to
inspect for flaws. Check each
light set for broken or cracked
sockets, frayed or bare wires
and loose connections.
*Dispose of worn or broken
light sets and replace them. Do
not place a faulty set of lights
back into the storage box for
next year's use. Store electrical
decorations away from chil-
dren and pets to ensure that
cords and wires are not dam-
aged in storage.
*Store electrical decorations
in a dry place where they can
not be damaged by water or
dampness.
*To keep from having a tan-
gled mess of lights next year, be
sure to pack them appropriate-
ly.
When preparing your holi-
day lights for storage, you can
purchase a holiday light stor-
age reel, or create your own
storage systems.
For example, wrap the lights
around an empty wrapping
paper tube or a cardboard
square, or wrap each set of
lights and put them in individ-
ual plastic bags.

LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
Joyce Fleming never had any
dolls to play with when she
was a little girl.
She grew up on a small farm
in Tennessee with three
younger brothers to care for
and little time for tea parties.
Now the 63-year-old busi-
ness owner finds herself sur-
rounded by dolls and toys
every day: she collects, makes,
repairs and appraises dolls for a
living.
"I just didn't have any dolls
[growing up] so I'm making up
for it now," said Fleming, who
will speak about antique dolls
Jan. 11 at the Beaches Museum
and History Center,
Jacksonville Beach.
Fleming will offer an unoffi-
cial appraisal of any doll or toy
that a guest brings to a 6:30
p.m. reception before the 7
p.m. lecture.
The lecture is offered in con-
junction with the museum's
newest traveling exhibit from
the Florida Museum of History
in Tallahassee called "Florida
Girls and Boys and Their Toys."
The exhibit, which closes
Jan. 20, features historic photo-
graphs of children playing
with toys that date back more
than 100 years ago.
Fleming said she began col-
lecting dolls about 30 years
ago, but she was inspired at a
much younger age.
When she was a little girl,
she lived near a dumpsite and
she often visited the caretaker'
there who was lovingly called
"Mr. Moore."
Mr. Moore's house was full of
all sorts of collections found in
the piles of junk that he guard-
ed.
Fleming began her doll col-
lection in 1977. Then she.
quickly learned how to repair
the dolls she collected and
then to alppFlk'Them,,'
That led to the opening of
her own doll repair shop,
Joyce's Dolls, which is located
in the Arlington area of
Jacksonville.
"I've always been the kind of
person who likes to make
things and repair things,"
Fleming said in a recent tele-
phone interview.
"I stay fairly busy because I
have the only doll hospital in
town."
In her 30 years of appraising
and repairing toys, Fleming
said she has seen some that are
a couple hundreds years old.
She can recall one incident
in which a woman brought her
a box of old toys that she was


about to throw away.
Just for fun, the woman's son
told her to take the box to
Fleming and see if the toys
were worth anything.
Fleming said she pulled out
the first toy from the box and
brought the woman a chair
before she told her how much
it was worth: about $2,000.
The next one she inspected
was worth about $6,000, and
the whole box totaled $15,000
in value, she said.
"They just don't know what
they've got until somebody
looks at it," Fleming said.
In a typical doll appraisal,
Flernurg said. she can tell the
owner what kind of toy they
have, what it is made of, what
it is worth and whether it
needs any repairs.
Dolls from hundreds of years
ago were made of papier-
mache and wood, according to
Fleming.
Through the years, toy man-
ufacturers have alternated
among a number of materials,
such as porcelain, cloth, plas-
tic, vinyl and composition,
which Fleming described as a
mixture of sawdust and glue.
Fleming said some owners
want their dolls painted
because their faces look dirty,
but sometimes., that can
decrease the value.


As a general principle,
Fleming said, older toys hold
their value more than newer
ones.
She said the expensive col-
lectable dolls now sold on tele-
vision and in magazines just
don't hold their value partly
because they're not made very
well.
"They're pretty to look at,
but they are not good invest-
ments," Fleming said.
In her repair shop, Fleming
said, she mostly fixes older,
antique dolls, instead of newer
models.
Part of the reason, according
to Fleming, is newer toys are
made so that they are virtually
impossible to repair. Most of
them must be thrown away
and new ones bought.
On Jan. 11, Fleming said; she
will bring some older, expen-
sive dolls in her collection to
show visitors.
As for the appraisals,
Fleming said those who plan
on attending should bring any
doll or -toy that is reasonably
old or that they think is of
some value.

Edna Dickinson's cooking has New England roots

The pot Edna Dickinson uses for baked beans says "Official
Boston Bean Pot" on the bottom


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Although Columbus, Georgia
was Edna Spencer Dickinson's
childhood home, there was no
Southern cooking in the fami-
ly's kitchen. Both of Dickinson's
parents were from New
England, her father from New
Hampshire and her mother
from Boston.
The Spencer family enjoyed
hearty New England style food.
Hot cereals were the utile for
breakfast every morning and
desserts were served hot.
Dickinson fondly remembers
dinners of corned beef and cab-
bage, Hungarian goulash, and
chicken fricassee from her
childhood.
On Saturday, the family
looked forward to her mother's
Boston Baked Beans, made with
"soldier beans" in a "wonderful
old bean pot with a cracked
lid," she said.
Dickinson acquired her own
bean pot at a sale and uses it for
her authentic Boston Baked
Beans, made from a recipe from
Boston's
Durgin-Park Restaurant. The
recipe comes from "A Guide to
New England Cooking." This
was one of Dickinson's first
cookbooks, purchased in New
England.
Within days of their marriage
fifty years ago, she and her hus-
band Max moved to
Cambridge, Massachusetts
where he attended Harvard
Business School.
While they were living there,
Dickinson began her lifelong
interest in cooking. She said
that she was always happy to
meet


new people especially when
they were able "to teach her
something about cooking."
Married now for 50 years,
Dickinson said she has too
many cookbooks to count
along with many recipes from
family and friends. One of her
most prized, possessions is a
cookbook she put together
filled with her favorite "kitchen
tested recipes, lovingly assem-
bled."
The cookbook is packed in
the couple's hurricane box,
ready in case of
an evacuation. Life could
still go even after a hurricane if
she still had these recipes, said
Dickinson.
One of her favorite recipes is
The Spencer Family Recipe Date
and Nut Cake. This was made
by her parents every year for the
holidays. The cake takes about
two hours of preparation time
and three hours in the oven.
After baking, it is refrigerated
and soaked with a little bour-
bon on a regular basis as it ages.
Dickinson asked her father,
who was an engineer, for the
recipe. He obliged, jotting down
the ingredients on a piece of
graph paper which she still has
today.
After their stay in Cambridge,
the Dickinsons returned to
Atlantic Beach, where they
raised their three children and


have lived ever since. Max
Dickinson is the current
President of the Beaches Area
Historical Society. Edna
Dickinson is the Chairman of
the Ximenez-Fatio House in St.
Augustine, The State House
Museum of The National
Society of The Colonial Dames
of America in The State of
Florida.
The couple has always
enjoyed entertaining and con-
tinue to keep a busy schedule
today. The hardest part of enter-
taining is deciding the menu,
then everything else falls into
place, said Dickinson.
Over the years, she has filled
several albums with the details
of family parties, dinner parties,
and other social events they
have hosted. Included are pho-
tographs, invitations, menus
with her notes on the food, and
other memorabilia.
One of the main course dish-
es that Dickinson has served fre-
quently for dinner parties is
Lasagna. Her recipe makes a tra-
ditional Lasagna which is
always well liked by her guests,
she said.
One of Dickinson's daughters
used her mother's recipe for a
Garden Club fund-raising proj-
ect in Roanoke, Virginia.
Dozens of small pans of lasagna
(about half the recipe size) were
sold "in house" for the success-
ful fund-raiser.
Dickinson also makes a
Seafood Lasagna for company
using a recipe from a friend.
The casserole has the best flavor
when made with no low fat
substitutions.

Cooking:


Cont. from A-7
At a recent dinner party,
Dickinson used her sister's
recipe for Indian Curry for the
main course. Just in case the
curry was not to her guests lik-
ing, she also had a small ham
with side dishes as an alterna-
tive. Much to her delight, all of
the guests enjoyed the curry
and the ham and other dishes
proved unnecessary.
The curry can be almost com-
pletely made ahead of time and
frozen, then add the finishing
touches just before serving. The
curry is served with bowls of
condiments so guests can cus-
tomize the flavor of their plate
of curry.
Pork Chop Casserole is pure
and simple comfort food best
served when there is a chill in
the air. The chops cook slowly
in the oven and when finished
there is a delicious sauce to
enjoy with hot cooked
Dickinson has served Blue
Lake Salad at many dinner par-
ties, often accompanied by
baked fruit. The salad and the
fruit are easy to make, go with
almost everything, and are
always a success, she said.
The following are recipes
from Edna Dickinson.

Boston Baked Beans
2 lbs. beans, California pea
beans or New York State beans
1 tsp. baking soda
one-half lb. salt pork
8 T sugar
two-thirds cup molasses
2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. salt
one-half tsp. pepper
1 medium size onion
To soak beans overnight:
Pick over the beans, rinse in a
colander and place in a bowl.
Cover the beans with cold
water, adding half again as
much water as the beans will
absorb a large amount. Soak
overnight uncovered, at room
temperature. In the morning
parboil the beans for 10 min-
utes with a teaspoon of baking
soda. Check beans periodically
and add more boiling water as
necessary to keep the beans cov-
ered with liquid. Spoon off the
starchy foam; then, run cold
water through the beans in a
colander.
Cut off rind and trim some of
the fat from the salt pork. Dice
salt pork in inch squares, divide
in half.
Put half of the salt pork on
the bottom of a 2-qt. bean pot
Wwithtber whole :onion. Put
beans inpot. Put-rest of pork on
top. Mix sugar, molasses, mus-
tard, pepper and salt until
smooth. Stir in one-half pint of
boiling water. Pour this over
the beans and pork. If neces-
sary, add more boiling water to
cover the beans. When adding
more water, mix the water care-
fully into the sauce with a spat-
ula. Try not to stir the beans.
Cover and bake at 300
degrees for 6 hours or more.
Serves 10

Spencer Family Recipe
Date Nut Cake
8 eggs
2 cups plain flour /
2 cups white sugar
2 lbs. pitted dates
2 lbs. pecans
1 tsp. vanilla

Cut the nuts into fourths.
Grease and line three loaf
pans with parchment paper and
set the oven for 225 degrees.
Chop the dates into one-
eighth slices. Be careful to check
for pits and stem end pieces. If a
date is dry, slice as thin as possi-
ble. Measure the 2 cups of flour.
Dredge the chopped dates in 1
cup of flour. Separate the dates
with your fingers and make sure
all the pieces are floured.
In a medium size mixing
bowl, using an electric mixer,
beat together the sugar, eggs,
and vanilla. Pour this mixture
into a large pan. Add the second
cup of flour to the egg mixture
and stir well.
Add the floured dates and stir.
Add the nuts last and stir from
the bottom, turning the batter
over until the nuts and dates are
mixed in.
Spoon and press the batter
into the pans. The pans will be
about three quarters filled.
Place in a pre-heated 225
degree oven and set the timer
for three hours. If cake doesn't


look completely baked, bake
longer. A tube pan probably
takes a full four hours.
Cool in pans on racks, then
wrap in foil and refrigerate.
Serve in thin slices.

Blue Lake Salad
2 cans (14.5 oz.) Del Monte
cut green beans (Blue Lake on
label)
1 pkg. Good Seasons Zesty


ENGAGEMENT

in a colander. Prepare the Good
Seasons as directed using only
oil and vinegar. Do not add the
water.
Place beans in a bowl and
pour dressing over, cover and
marinate overnight. Stir beans

Note: The amount of beans

beans more often to coat.
To assemble: Have eggs and
bacon ready. Line platter with
lettuce leaves. Spoon string
beans over lettuce, arrange egg
slices over beans. Sprinkle with
chopped bacon and garnish

Serves 6 to 8.

Hot Curried Fruit
1 large can of peach halves,
drained
1 can of apricot halves,
drained
dried cranberries
cranberry juice
curry powder
brown sugar, optional
Place fruit in a baking dish
and sprinkle cranberries over
top. Pour in a small amount of
cranberry juice, enough to cover
the bottom of the dish and keep
the fruit moist. Sprinkle a small
amount of curry powder evenly
over the fruit. Optional, sprin-
kle brown sugar over top but it
is not needed.
Bake at 350 degrees until hot.
Serve 6 to 8.

Pork Chop Casserole
butterfly pork chops or thin
boneless chops
1 can cream of celery soup
1 small carton of sour cream

Estimate the number of chops
per person. Trim off all visible
fat. This is very important.
Brown pork chops in iron
skillet on both sides. Place
browned chops in a covered
casserole dish. Mix together

tiple chops use 1 can of soup
and a large container of sour
cream.) Blend together and

stock. The chicken and stock
can be left in the refrigerator
overnight; skim off fat before
using.
Next day:

onions, in a half cup of olive oil
until browned. This takes forev-
er and must be stirred so it
won't burn.

of the chicken stock and chick-
en, cook 20 minutes.
Mix a quarter cup of flour
with a half cup of cold water,
add to mixture and cook until it
thickens.Add the remaining
half quart of broth, the ginger,
Tabasco, and Worcestershire.
The curry can be frozen at
this point.
To serve, defrost and heat the
curry. When ready to serve add
the heavy cream and well beat-
en egg yolks. (These can be
stirred together before adding.)
Heat to boiling.
Serve over rice with a selec-
tion of the following condi-
ments.
The condiments should be
bite-sized or chopped. Place
each condiment in a bowl so
guests can sprinkle their choices


on their plate of curry.
Condiments: grapefruit sec-
tions, orange sections, can-
taloupe, banana, peaches,
grapes, apricots, apples, red pep-
per, avocado, onion, tomato,
green peppers, bacon, celery,
peanuts, cooked egg whites,

Mountaineers rally for Gator Bowl win


By ROBERT DeANGELO
'SPORTS EDITOR
For a game that seemed des-
tined to become a rout,
Monday's Gator Bowl turned
into a pretty entertaining
affair.
West Virginia rallied from an
18-point second-half deficit to
top Georgia Tech 38-35 in
front of 67,714 fans at Alltel
Stadium. It was the highest-
scoring Gator Bowl in history,
surpassing Tennessee's 45-23
victory over Virginia Tech in
1994. West Virginia and
Georgia Tech also combined to
set Gator Bowl marks for total
yards (928), first downs (40)
and total plays at 121.
Mountaineers quarterback
Patrick White was the star of
the show, completing 9-of-15
passes for 131 yards and two
touchdowns and rushing 22
times for 145 yards and a
score. White, who injured his
ankle, neck and non-throwing
hand in the game, had to carry
even more of West Virginia's
offensive load with a banged-
up Steve Slaton (the country's
third-leading rusher at 144
yards per game) limited to just
11 yards on three carries, all in
the first half.
So ferocious was the Georgia
Tech defense that
Mountaineers coach Rich
Rodriguez Contemplated
pulling the bruised and bat-
tered White in favor of backup
Jarrett Brown.
"Patrick White is swollen all
over his body," Rodriguez said.
"He kind of willed us to victo-
ry. ,
The sophomore QB re-aggra-
vated an ankle injury during
Monday's game. His hand also
struck a Yellow Jacket defend-
er's helmet. "He could hardly
grip the ball," noted
Rodriguez. And another shot
caused White's neck to swell.
"I was hurting a lot but I
had to block it out," White
said, as he applied ice packs to
a number of areas. "I told
coach I wasn't coming off the
field unless-they carried me.
"ft makes me want to play
harder. When I'm injured I get
as little angry .. and that
makes me play even harder."
That White and the
Mountaineers were even
around at then end was a tes-
tament to the team's resiliency.
Georgia Tech sophomore quar-
terback Taylor Bennett keyed a
big Yellow Jackets first half,
finding All-America wideout
Calvin Johnson repeatedly
alone in the West Virginia sec-
ondary.
In only the second start of
his collegiate career, Bennett
was 19-of-29 for 326 yards and
linked up with Johnson for
two first half touchdowns as
the Yellow Jackets built a 28-17
halftime lead.
Georgia Tech stretched its
lead by recovering an onside
kick to start the third quarter.
Running back Tashard Choice
(27 carries, 169 yards) sprinted
17 yards up the middle and ,
Johnson out-leaped two
defenders to snare a 32-yard

pass before Choice banged it in
from five yards out to put the
Yellow Jackets in front, 35-17.
West Virginia then resorted
to some trickery to close the
gap. Following an apparent
offsides by Georgia Tech,
Mountaineers center Dan
Mozes snapped the ball but
the rest of the offensive line
didn't move. White then
rolled out to his left and hit a
wide-open Tito Gonzales for a
surprise 57-yard scoring play.
"It was a freeze play to get
the defense offsides," White
later explained. The QB said it
was the first time all season
the play had worked that well.
West Virginia tried a similar
play in the first half, but White
was smothered by a quartet of
Yellow Jackets defenders after a
two-yard gain.
Gonzales' score seemed to
rejuvenate the Mountaineers
and added some electricity
amongst West Virginia fans,
who hadn't had much to cheer
to that point
The Mountaineers drew even
closer when White hit
Brandon Myles on a 14-yard
scoring strike at 6:57 of the
third quarter.


Then West Virginia got the
break of the game in recover-
ing the ensuing kickoff when
it glanced off the leg of Tech
special-teamer Tony Clark.
White scored on a 15-yard
rumble between defenders two
plays later.
"We like to make it exciting,
huh," Rodriguez said. "I'm
really proud of our football
team. Georgia Tech has a great
football team and has some
great players.
"It didn't look good there
for a while, but I never saw
any panic. We had some guys
who absolutely had some
courageous performances.
Some of-the best I've ever
seen."
For his part, White noted
playing in pain was just anoth-
er obstacle he and his West
Virginia teammates had to deal
with.
"I wanted to send the sen-
iors off with smiles on their
faces,". he said.
While Monday's game
marked the Mountaineers'
third Gator Bowl appearance
in the past four years, and fifth
overall, it was the team's first
victory.

receptions for 186 yards but it was not enough as West Virginia prevailed 38-35.

Changes in store for Jaguars?


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST

The new year for Jackson-
ville's Jaguars has only one sure
message about their biggest
question. There will be a quar-
terback of sorts.
Will the new prospect who
popped up in the season-end-
ing Kansas City game shove
David Garrard aside, much as
Garrard pushed incum-
bent Byron
Leftwich out ot //
the way?
Is Quinn
Gray the sav-
ior behind .-
center that
head coach
Jack Del Rio
has been
looking for?
Can the Jaguars come
back from a season of medioc-
rity to become a playoff team
again?
If Gray ends up replacing
Garrard, it'll be the oddity of
the decade. It was ironic
enough when Garrard came off
the bench to take the job, only
when Leftwich went down
with a still-mysterious ankle
injury.
If Gray, who was Garrard's


bench buddy, now becomes
the starter, what does it say
about the Jaguars' coaches?
Surely after several years one of
them must have noticed some
of the untapped talent holding
clipboards on the sideline.
Gray, like Garrard, sat on the
bench so long he was growing
moss instead of a beard.
And if Lord Byron does
come back, what will. the rela-
tionship between the three of
them be like?
', "..... .. It looks
pnow as if at
Least one of
the quarter-
backs is. sure
to be gone.
Three, as the
old saying and
TIV sitcom goes, is
company.
Del Rio can no
longer expect Garrard
and Gray to be good little fellas
and just be caddies for
Leftwich.
On the other hand, if
Jacksonville deals Leftwich to
another team, what will all the
Byron lovers, who insist No.. 7
is still number one and hate
Garrard with a passion, say?
Will they storm the Jaguars'
office and demand Wayne
Weaver's scalp?


Well, if one of the
Big Three is run off, he won't
be alone. It's a cinch some of
his present teammates will be
on similar shuttles out of town.
As hard as it is to see nice
guys traded or fired, remember
how baseball's Leo Durocher
once. so aptly put it: "Nice guys
finish last."
Duroche' was talking about
Mel Ott of the New York
Giants, like by everyone in the
National League, but never
feared as a manager.
After this disaster of a season
that saw a winning team evap-
orate into an 8-8 finish, who
would blame the Jaguars' brass
for a wholesale clean-out? As
one old baseball man put it
after a particularly galling los-
ing season, "Tell 'em to back
the truck up and load it with
all of them."
Maurice Jones-Drew said the
Jaguars are a much better team
than their record indicates.
Wrong Mo-Jo. A .500 team is
no better, nor worse, than a
.500 team. The Jaguars are
what they made themselves.
On the local front, give the
Gator Bowl folks applause for
Monday's 38-35 West Virginia
thriller over Georgia Tech. It
turned out to be one of the.
best matches of the season.

Sheepshead at the jetties, whiting at the pier


Lots of sheepshead are
coming off the rocks at
the Base jetties as well
as along the big jetties on
the river side.
On the Jacksonville Beach

stronger with some weighing
nearly two pounds.
Bottom fishing offshore
has been scaled down due to

Most everyone was able to
pull up his limit of beeliners


and big seabass.
The grouper and snapper
were a little small and had
to be released.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier, the rails were lined
with anglers most of the
week. Whiting was the num-
ber one catch but the occa-
sional black drum, redbass,
bluefish and yellowmouth
was iced down.
Linda Bridgett had several
yellowmouth in her bucket.
Paul Matson caught 18
whiting and five blues last
Saturday morning.
Stan Frysle caught a 19-
inch redbass and several
whiting.
Walter Harris had one of


the best pier catches last
week. He left the pier with
42 whiting.
Veteran canal guide John
Dyrssen, with Dr. Al Fechtel
and his guest, used live
shrimp under corks near the
Butler Bridge last Friday and
caught 23 speckled trout, a
pair of blues and lots of
jacks and spots.
James Gergley, fishing out
of his "Head Hunter" last
week, fished Oak Harbor
Creek and caught six red-
bass, four trout, a flounder
and a sheepshead.
Capt. Dave Sipler, with
Steve Adkins and Ron

Sisters Creek and caught
their limit of 15 speckled
trout to five pounds,
three redbass and three
sheepshead.
Larry "Fishman" Finch

anchored over one of
their favorite sheepshead
spots last Wednesday and
by noon, using live fid-

sheepshead.
Their fish weighed from
three to seven pounds.
On Saturday the
"Fishman" and Bryan
MacAlister, from Neptune
Beach, fished along the
base jetties in 15 feet of
water and caught 78
sheepshead.
On New Years day Larry
Finch and Bruce Boyer
caught approximately 75
fish. One fish was esti-
mated to weigh about 12
pounds.
Captain David King
made two red top runs
last week for whiting. On
both runs David stated he
caught over a hundred
big whiting. He fished in
35 feet of water with fresh
dead shrimp on circle
hooks.
Al Wiltshire and John
Burroughs anchored near
the Bridge of Lyons last
Wednesday and caught 15
whiting large enough to
keep while releasing
dozens of small seabass
for another day.
Good Fishin'.

Lesson of the mountain



climbers is clear: Life



is fragile, so be careful


T wo Sundays ago, in the
Jacksonville Bank
Marathon, a 49-year-old
man collapsed and later died.
He ran the Half-Marathon,
finished and fell over at the
finish line; the on-site emer-
gency crew rushed him off to
the hospital. Race officials
then searched the race field
looking for his wife who was
running the full marathon.
It's terrible, and could hap-
pen to anyone, but it is a cal-
culated risk: No one expects
to fall dead during or after a
race, especially if you are out
there running on a fairly rou-
tine basis and you know your
health is pretty sound.
Why do I mention this?
Those three mountain
climbers lost and stranded on
Mt. Hood.
I was listening to the Talk
of the Nation program on
NPR (National Public Radio)
last Friday. The show's host
commented on the grave sit-


nation con-
cerning the
three lost
climbers
and listen-
ers phoned
into the
channel
with their
own com-
ments.
Most of
it went
pretty
much as
you might
expect;
calls were

dangerous ascent of Mt.
Hood is up the northern side
and that the worst time of
year to be anywhere on Mt.
Hood is during December.
The three must have been
aware of these two facts
before they went up, but they
did it anyway. Now they have
not only put their own lives


No doubt the rescuers
would rather have been
at home with their
families enjoying the
Christmas buildup. No
doubt the climbers'
families would be
relieved to have them
back. And no doubt the
taxpayers would rather
not pay invoice on this
avoidable disaster.


sympathy and hope. Then a
man called in who lived, as
he said, "Fifteen or 20 min-
utes from Mt. Hood." He
mentioned that he was a
climber and had climbed
Hood several times.
But most importantly, he
said that every climber in the
area knows that the most


in peril but
the lives of
every rescue
worker trying
to save them.
These men
all have wives
and children.
Did they give
any considera-
tion to their
widows or the
children that
would be ren-
dered father-
less if they
didn't return
from their
foolish adven-


ture?
How selfish and irresponsi-
ble can a person be?
In order to support .his
family, a coal miner may lose
his life.
A soldier may get killed
defending his country on a
foreign field.
Dangerous jobs, but there


is not much they can do
about it.
A man has a choice when
it comes to risking his life on
a mountainside at the worst
time of the year.
Even if none of the rescue
team is killed during the res-
cue, the monetary cost is
immense: According to NBC
news, $100,000 has already
been spent on the Mt. Hood
search.
Mountain climbers are sel-
dom ever charged with the
cost of their rescue and tax-
payers will get stuck with the
bill on this one too. But if
you or I ever need an ambu-
lance we will be charged out
the nose for it.
As I write, the body of one
of the climbers, Kelly James,
a 48-year-old landscape
designer from Dallas, Texas,
has been recovered. He has
left behind a wife and four
children.
Comments from his wife
and brother were predictable:
"Loved his family . really
good father.. died doing
what he loved ... it was one
of his passions, along with
his family."
The other two, Jerry Cooke
(36), a lawyer from New York
City, and Brian Hall (37) a
personal trainer, have not
been found and are now pre-
sumed dead underneath ten
feet of snow.
No doubt the rescuers
would rather have been at
home with their families
enjoying the Christmas
buildup. No doubt the
climbers' families would be
relieved to have them back.
And no doubt the taxpayers
would rather not pay invoice
on this avoidable disaster.
Life is fragile and easily
lost. Whether one dies on a
mountain, in a street or a
battleground, the loss affects
much more than one life.
In 2007 let's all be thankful
and careful.


At risk of tibia fractures


Last week, I saw a teenage
athlete who is now about
10 weeks into her season.
She had begun to develop pain
in the middle of her leg, with-
out sustaining any injury.
She described pain that
increased as the day went on,
and that was made worse by
running and jumping. It did-
n't bother her at rest, and did-
n't wake her up at night.
Her physical exam revealed
no specific or unusual findings,
other than tenderness along
the bone. X-rays were then
obtained, and these too were
normal.
At this point, I told her and
her parents that I believed she
had a tibial stress fracture. I
could tell.that this diagnosis
took them by surprise. She was
a young, healthy, and condi-
tioned athlete.
"How could she get a stress
fracture?" they asked.
Any athlete is at risk for
overload injury and the devel-
opment of stress fractures.
This past month, even noted
cyclist Lance Armstrong devel-
oped a stress fracture to his
tibia. Considered one of the
premier American athletes,
having won the Tour de France
seven consecutive times,
Armstrong retired last summer
from cycling, and then decided
to get back into running.
He decided to try for his first
marathon, and begin training
for the New York City
marathon. After months of
training, Armstrong took part
in the New York City
marathon last month.
During the course of the
race, he developed pain in his
leg but made it through the
race in 2:59, and said after-
wards, "In 20 years of pro
sports, endurance sports, from
triathlons to cycling, all the
Tours, even the worst days in
the Tours, nothing was as hard
as that, and nothing left me
feeling the way I feel now in
terms of just sheer fatigue and
soreness."
Despite weeks of rest, his leg
pain continued, and ultimately
he went a saw a doctor, and
tests confirmed that he had
sustained a stress fracture.
Most commonly seen in run-
ners, stress fractures typically
occur when the athlete
changes something about his
or her training regimen. A sud-

den increase in the number of
days of training per week, or
an increase in miles run per
week is a common history
reported by those with stress
injuries.
Also, with a change in sea-
sons, a change in surface, such
as from the tennis courts to the
basketball court, can lead to
stress fractures.
I Also at risk are those athletes
that start a new exercise pro-
gram after a period of inactivi-
ty.
, This change rapidly increases
the demands on the bone, and
it simply cannot handle it.
The bone therefore begins to
break down, developing micro-
scopic fractures begin, and
causing pain.
The lower leg is involved in
approximately 50 percent of all
stress fractures.
Tennis, gymnastics, track
and field, and basketball are
the sports most commonly
associated with stress fractures.


Because the fractures are,
only microscopic at first, regu-
lar X-rays will be often normal,
as they were in my athlete.
A special study called a bone
scan, which is more sensitive,
for bony injury may be
obtained, or an MRI may be
ordered to confirm the injury.
Stress fractures are seen more
commonly in female athletes
than compared to men. Factors
that lead to an increased risk in
women include poor diet or
eating disorders, and irregular
periods, and a woman's overall
lower bone mass as compared
to men.
My athlete's bone scan con-
firmed her stress fracture, and
she has now been taken off the
field for an altered rest pro-
gram. She will avoid all run-
ning and jumping, while I will
allow her to swim, bike and lift
weights.
With proper treatment,, she
should be back in action in
four to six weeks. If stress
fractures are left untreated, fur-
ther injury to the bone occurs,
and a true break in the bone
can develop.
