Have you ever watched a live meeting of the
St. Johns County Commission on govern-
ment television and wished you could voice.
your opinion on an agenda item? .
At Monday's meeting of the St. Johns
County Civic Association Roundtable, a
Ponte Vedra Beach resident suggested that
remote commenting should be considered by
the county.
. Viewers watching proceedings from their
homes or businesses, whether near the com-
mission's venue in St. Augustine or miles
away, could fax or e-mail comments on an
agenda item being discussed.
The comments would be read into the
record or displayed for commissioners to
consider before they vote on the item.
Do you think remote commenting during
'the meeting is a good idea, and would you
use such a system?
Share your opinion by going online and
visiting www.pontevedraleader.com. Look
for a link to the poll. Results will be pub-
lished in The Leader next week.

Move is temporary
while county mulls
audit, other issues

The branch manager of the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library has taken a temporary leave of
absence while an. investigation surrounding the
library is being conducted by St. Johns County.
Mitzi Thomas took a temporary leave last week
and was replaced by Dan Markus, who will manage
the branch until her return, according to interim
County Administrator Wally Kropacek.
The St. Johns County Public Library System is
also facing an audit report, which said that almost
$500,000 in uncollected library fees were waived by
county librarians from April 2005 to September
"We have had more of a forgiveness policy '[with
library fees]," St. Johns County Library Director
Mary Jane Little said Tuesday.
"We will work .. on refining our policies to
address the concerns ... in the audit."
Little said the audit is not entirely accurate, how-
Jae Bass, technical services director for the library
system, conducted his own financial review and
found a "significant discrepancy," according to a
memo he wrote last month.
Bass said the actual amount of waived fees came
to $127,477 about $300,000 less than what the
audit notes.
That $300,000 represents monies credited when
lost items are returned to the library. The auditors
incorrectly considered this as money that was writ-
ten off, Bass said.
County Attorney Patrick McCormack, who is
overseeing the investigation of the Ponte Vedra
Beach library, would not say Tuesday whether the
audit is being included in the investigation.

*" A report by the St. Augustine accoutiting firm of
Davis Monk notes nearly half a million dollars in
uncollected library fines and "weaknesses" in pro-
cedures and controls of the St. Johns County Public
Library System.
The report, based on an inspection of library
records for the 18 months that ended Sept. 30,
notes the following:
Of the $676,864 in fines assessed, $457,497 -
about 68 percent were "purged" from the sys-
tem's records.
S Based on the library department's practice,
"each branch manager [monthly] is to write off or
purge inactive accounts with balances less that
$100" for late fines.
The library system's management authorizes all
its librarians to write off individual accounts.
"No written policies or authorizations were
Cash collected at branch libraries was about
$60,000 higher than what was recorded in the
library system's software, indicating balances "are
not being credited consistently."
The library management should draft a formal
policy on "the write off of library fines" which

Rights bill OK'd

The St. Johns County Commission on Tuesday
unanimously passed a Neighborhood Bill of
Rights ordinance the very first county law enact-
ed in 2007.
Approval of the proposal, which is designed to
improve communication between developers and
citizens, was met with a round of applause from
the audience.
"I'm very interested today in seeing this docu-
ment become an ordinance," said Commission
Chair Ben Rich, who proposed that last-minute
wording changes be worked out by the county's
legal department.
The Neighborhood Bill of Rights allows for early
notification to registered neighborhoods of any
applications for land use changes or develop-
ments proposed nearby. Notices must be sent
within 10 days of the application's .submission to
the county.
Any amendments or changes to those applica-
tions also require notification.
Neighborhood associations can then request
meetings with applicants, and any commitments
or agreements made in those meetings must be
documented by county staff.
The final draft also allows residents to speak in
public hearings for a period of time "reasonably
equivalent" to that afforded developers, and to
cross examine developers' witnesses.

Dan Markus sits Tuesday in his office at the Ponte Vedra Beach
acting director while Mitzi Thomas is on leave.

Proposed county hotline

to target waste, theft


At the request of Clerk of the Court Cheryl
Strickland, St. [ohns County commissioners
agreed Tuesday that a hotline should be
established for citizens or staff to report fraud
Strickland said the idea for a hotline came
from county residents and from many other
counties throughout the state of Florida that
have similar systems.
The calls would go to a fraud division that
would be established in the internal audit
department within the Clerk of the Court
"We just felt with the growth of the coun-
ty now and the growth of the government
that there is definitely a need for it,"
Strickland said in an interview Tuesday.
One fraud investigator would be hired to
take the calls and investigate complaints,

"" Sittand said.

Commissioners gave Strickland the go-
ahead to present at the next commission
meeting a formal proposal outlining the cost
and process of implementing the system.
They agreed to amend the clerk's budget
for this year to include funding for the sys-
Strickland said citizens or county staff can
use the hotline to report anything from friv-
olous spending to stealing.
She said commissioners will be informed of
more serious complaints that may require
action, and any criminal suspicions will be
turned in to the St. lohns Countv Sheriff's
Anyone who files a complaint will have
the ability to do so anonymously, or the
caller can leave contact information if they
would like to know the result of their com-
plaint, Strickland said.

Library: County mum on target of investigation

Continued from A-1
His only response was that
"a number of issues" are being
considered in the investiga-
tion, which he said was more
of a "review" by an outside
"reviewer" hired by the coun-
McCormack did confirm
that an anonymous e-mail
recently sent to all five coun-
ty commissioners is being
considered in the review.
The e-mail claims that
Thomas has a vendetta
against Little and has tried to
get Little removed from her
McCormack would not say
whether the legal department
believes the e-mail was writ-
ten by a county employee.
Thomas filed an elections
fraud complaint against Little
in August, saying the soon-to-
retire director coerced library
employees to sign a petition
for former Commissioner

Karen Stern's reelection.
After a brief investigation,
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement dropped the
complaint in November.
Thomas refused to com-
ment Monday on her leave of
absence or the investigation.
McCormack said Thomas
was "directed" or "requested"
to take a temporary leave
while the investigation is
being conducted.
But he said the leave is
"absolutely non punitive."
Little also refused to com-
ment Monday when asked
about the investigation or the
As for the audit, Little said
it will be considered, along
with the "discrepancy," by
the Library Advisory Board,
which is scheduled to meet at
9:30 a.m. today at the
Southeast Branch Library.
In the audit report, which
was prompted by citizen com-

plaints to the Clerk. of the
Court, auditors concluded
that library policies were out-
The audit report suggests
that the county adopt a for-
mal policy on how to write off
library fines, which would
"serve to prevent further con-
fusion regarding the function
and collection of library
According to the report, all
librarians in St. Johps County
are authorized to write off
individual accounts, and it is
a common practice to purge
inactive accounts with bal-
ances less than $100 on a
monthly basis.
No written policies or
authorizations were found,
the report said.
"Evidently their procedures
have just sort of evolved over
the years and that's just the
way they were doing it,",
Strickland said in an inter-

view Tuesday.
According to the report, the
library system's management
"does not believe that their
function is to generate rev-
enue through fines" and that
the policy of waiving fines is
"the norm among other coun-
ty library systems."
Strickland said she polled
several library systems
throughout the state and
found numerous methods for
handling unpaid library fines.
Any changes to library poli-
cies must be conducted by the
Library Advisory Board,
according to both Little and
Those changes would then
need to be approved by the St.
Johns County Commission.
McCormack said he does
not know how long Thomas
will be on a leave of absence
or how long the investigation
will take.

Compromise with state will
keep trees on Atlantic Blvd.

Crape myrtles which were to
be removed from a median in
Atlantic Beach will now be
trimmed, according to Public
Works Director Rick Carper.
The Florida Department of
Transportation had directed the
city of Atlantic Beach to remove
three crape myrtles along a
median on Atlantic Boulevard
because the trees are obstructing
,the view of. a billboard.
A billboard owner com-
plained that the trees block the
view of a sign on the Neptune
Beach side of the road.
There has to be a 500-foot
sightline east and west of the
billboard, Carper told the com-
mission at a meeting Monday.
However, after speaking to a

Carper said the city is now able
to trim down the trees, which
have been there for seven years,

to beautify Atlantic Beach.
"This [the median] is running
through the heart of two cities.
This is not rural land," he said.
Carper pointed out that the

side and the city has to comply.

The Leader's Opinion

Gator win

a plus for

the area

The Florida Gator victory over the Ohio State
Buckeyes for the national championship sparked many
reactions most of them enthusiastic and positive in
this area so closely tied to the Gator Nation.
Ardent Gator fans were, of course, thrilled by the final
41-14 score. Anyone with blue and orange seemed to be
wearing it proudly the morning after the big game.
Even those who are not normally Gator enthusiasts
could take a little pride in the state's top showing.
The much touted boys from Old Florida made an
impressive showing at the game. An extra point of pride
was the fine showing by local Tim Tebow, last year's star
of the Nease High School football team.
Even those who rooted for anything but orange and
blue could see benefits here from the win as sports bars
and restaurants were busy, along with take-out eateries.
The game meant brisk sales for all associated businesses,
including sports merchandisers and others.
The game provided a nice bit of post-holiday cheer
and sparked substantial enthusiasm and good-natured
It was a good game and a lot of good fun.

Letter to thi'e editor:


Price of being an informed

stakeholder is a bargain

Stem cell debate is skewed Newspaper readers key part of democracy
Stem cell debate is skewed

To the editor:
The new Congress is put-
ting forward legislation to
divert taxpayer dollars
towards embryonic stem cell
research. The miracle cures
promised by some politicians
for embryonic stem cells are
the greatest example of hype
anid distortion since the
inanity surrounding Y2K
(year 2000) and prediction of
the coming apocalypse.
Many will remember the
words of Senator John
Edwards. before the last elec-
tion, "If we do the work that
we can do in this country, the
work that we will do. when
John Kerry is President, peo-
ple like Christopher Reeve are
going to walk, get up out of
that wheelchair and walk
again". This was not only cal-
lous politics at its worst, but
even Reeve's own researchers
have now admitted that the
promise of embryonic stem
cells has been grossly exagger-
ated and conclude that
"...stem cells from adult bone
marrow has significant
advantages in treatment of a
variety of neurological dis-
The media has disingenu-
ously portrayed the debate on
stem cells as one between pro-
gressive science and backward
ethics. This has distorted the
feebleness and sometimes
deceit of the scientific claims
made on behalf of embryonic
stem,cells and thereby misled
the public.
The fact is that adult stem
cells (harvested from adult
bone marrow, umbilical cords
etc) is proven, immensely
effective and embraces life.

Adult stem cells have been
used to successfully treat
more than 70 diseases so far.
Conversely, the success rate of
embryonic stem cell research
is zero----not a single disease
treated or cured, not even for
a mouse!
To make matters worse, 20
years ago we were told that
being able to grow any tissue
type desired from embryonic
stern cells was "an essential
first step". Despite tens of
millions of dollars and
decades of worldwide
research, this "first step" has
still not been achieved.
Indeed, one of the world's
preeminent and renowned
stem cell experts, Professor
Lord Winston recently stated,
I am not convinced that
embryonic stem cells will, in
my lifetime and possibly any-
body's lifetime for that mat-
ter, be holding, quite the
promise that we desperately
hope they will".
So why are people pushing
this seemingly false hope and.
doubtful "potential" at tax-
payer expense? Well, there
appear to be three types of
ardent advocate. Firstly,
executives of biotech firms
doing the research., For them,
it is not a question of morals,
but profits. The second group
is politicians who are used to
making. false and grandiose
promises for political 'gain.
.The last group is the most rep-
rehensible: those that are try-
ing to justify the destruction
of human embryos merely to
advance an ideology.

1) Who needs a newspa-
per when you've got the
Internet and television?
2) Isn't the idea of a twice-
weekly community newspa-
per outdated in this time of
global village and instant
access 24/7?
The questions are easy.
The answer to question
number one is everybody.
If you care about being an
informed citizen and fulfill-
ing your duty as an educated
participant in democracy
then the community newpa-
per is your only comprehen-
sive news source that covers
news about local events and
trends that directly impact
your home and family.
Newspapers promote
informed citizen discourse
and such discussion is vital
to democracy.
The answer to question
number two is no. A twice-
weekly community newspa-
per dedicated to covering
your neighbors and your
government is not outdated.
Good newspapers have long
been a linchpin of the com-
munities they serve- holding
a mirror up so all can see a
clear picture of what is going
on in our neighborhoods and
city halls warts and all.
Newspapers have been
dubbed watchdogs.
Traditionally they provide
the breadth of coverage no
one else bothers with and do
so, providing substance over
sizzle. Does it make newspa-
pers dull? Sometimes, but
please know that we try hard
to make reading a pleasure.
Having said that, we're
always mindful that credibili-
ty is a newspaper's greatest
asset and not to be traded for
the opportunity to irrespon-


sibly generate a quick buzz or
hot rumor. Not many blog-
gers will pledge the same.
Newspapers and newspaper
people have spent a vast
amount of time lately worry-
ing about what the future
might hold for newspapers.
As one publisher noted, I
don't want to be the last one
making buggy whips."
None of us do. We want
your newspaper to be an
informative, compelling read
that you look forward to
receiving. That is why we
continually strive to improve
the product, providing more
and better content in a more
attractive, user-friendly man-
But why should you the
reader care about any of
Because you are stakehold-
ers in the debate.
Newspapers matter.
Without a community-based
newspaper, who would give
you a complete picture of
what's going on at city hall,
the hospital, the schools, the
library, the parks.... ?
Public meetings are open
to anyone and public records

are available for inspection.

tion and much, much
more each week, while
learning what others in the
community are doing of note
could prove to be more than
a full-time job.
That is what Leader
reporters know: A dedicated
staff of professionals spends
dozens of hours each week
canvassing the community
and asking questions to pro-
vide a compelling package of
information useful to you.
Could we do better' Yes,
-and we aim to keep moving
in that direction. Let me
know if there is something
you think merits coverage.
If you value living at the
Beaches and enjoy its,
unique lifestyle then you,
should be a Leader reader. An
annual subscription is $25 a
year. It's truly a small sum to
invest in the only newspaper
printed at the Beaches for the,
Beaches community. It's the
price of being a stakeholder
in your community.
Besides, it pays to be a
Leader reader and the big
payoff is a community of
informed residents who col-
lectively keep our communi-
ty on track.

Height limit has been costly to JB

To the editor
I think it's time that the
property owners in
Jacksonville Beach understand
what the 35' height amend-
ment that became law after the
2004 general election has real-
ly done to our city.,
It wasn't until Bill Latham'
became mayor when that
Council decided what to do in
downtown Jacksonville Beach,
that Jacksonville Beach was
discovered again.
The city put in the infra-
structure and then let the rest
of the downtown redevelop-
ment up to entreprenurialship
of the free enterprise system
work. And work it did. Two
new hotels, Walgreen's,
Carrabba's, Sneakers and Joe's
Crab Shack all sprouted up,
with their own on site parking.
Then the Metropolitan build-
ing on 1st Street North, a com-
bination of retail, business
condos and residential condos,
a new building on the Proctor
Ace Hardware location, a com-
bination of residential and
retail and the soon to be office

condo at the corners of Beach
Blvd. between Third and
Second Streets. All of these
facilities have their own on-
site parking. Since it's unprof-
itable for a business venture to
be able to accomplish the same
kind of business facilities to a
restricted 35' height, the
downtown redevelopment has
come to a screeching halt.
Most of the time when a
change was made by Council
to the LDC (Land
Development Code); it went
into effect one year after the
final approval by Council, on
the second reading. This one
year hiatus gave the property
owner six months to complete
the permitting process and six
months after that to start con-
The 35' height amendment
went into effect one day after
the general election of 2004.
On that day the Council certi-
fied the results of the election.
The property owners were not
given the one year hiatus that
was the normal procedure.
Hence, the FLAW in that

If the city fails to settle these

options: declare bankruptcy,

The two-room depot at Pablo Historical Park is the oldest railroad terminal in Duval County, according to architectural
historian Sidney P. Johnston. The circa-1900 structure is constructed of heart pine and is painted chrome yellow.

Century-old structures in need,

of repair, BAHS director says
,-v. :- .. -

The Beaches Art Historical Society is
launching a fund raising drive to help
turn back the hands of time.
The society plans to restore a trio of
historic buildings in Pablo Historical
Park, Executive Director Holly Beasley
said last week.
According to Beasley, a combination
of age and the- elements has left the
century-old structures, including a
post office that dates to 1903 and train
depot that dates to 1900, in various
states of disrepair.
"The buildings are in fairly decent
shape. They are not in any danger of
falling down, but they need major
upkeep," Beasley said.
"The cost of maintenance and
preservation work is pretty expensive."
Wood rot is the major contributor,
Beasley said, especially along the roof
line of the train depot. The piers
beneath the circa 1900 section fore-
man's house are shifting, causing the
porch to slightly sag in spots and the.
handicapped ramp needs to be updat-
ed "to better meet today's codes," she
The structures on the three-block
historical campus in Jacksonville
Beach are also in need of repainting.
Beasley said she has applied for
$35,000 in matching state grant

Did you know?
The historic train depot at Pablo
Historical Park in Jacksonville Beach
has several interesting architectural
design features, such as 9-foot eaves
that once sheltered waiting passengers
and a. protruding, three-sided ticket
window. The depot is a living
reminder of Henry Flagler's ambitious
railway system, which helped develop
the entire east coast of Florida.
monies to complete the renovations.
Without the grant, she said the work
will be done on an as-needed basis
beginning with the depot.
"There comes a point in our long-
range plan when we have to address
these preservation issues," she said. "It
is our responsibility to do so. We will
have to move forward with that and
the depot is number one on our list."
While the post office is not in need
of major restoration, Beasley said
maintaining the historic structure is
paramount to preserving an important
piece of Beaches history. .
"Regular maintenance needs to be
done on any major structure at the
beach, even new construction," she
said. "It's that times 100 years. We are
just taking, this a step at a time, a
building at a time."
Beasley said h considerable amount
of work was done on the buildings

when they were moved to the proper-
ty in the 1980s, "but we must be able
to maintain that," she added.
Along with the exterior mainte-
nance, Beasley said funds are also
needed to help address some interior
issues in the foreman's house.
The age of the construction coupled
with a dated heating and cooling sys-
tem has left the two-story building
with cold and hot spots. Adding a
more modern system, she said, will
help redistribute the air flow,
The interior also needs to be
repainted, but Beasley said it has not
been decided whether to return the
walls to their original oil or wood
"We need to look at the overall
exhibition space to determine an
appropriate time and take it back with
the proper research of the chosen time
frame," she said.
"It is extremely important to local
history, not only to reflect life 100
years ago but to show how the com-
munity grew."
Beasley said the project is already
receiving attention and contributions
are beginning to trickle in. The funds
will be earmarked for -preservation
projects independent of the museum's
general fund. Donations can be sent to
the Beaches Area Historical Society,

Doctor offers food prep classes in Neptune Beach

While most people
understand that
whole grains, fruits,
and vegetables are part of a
healthy diet, it can often
prove difficult to incorporate
these foods into meals.
Jacksonville Beach physi-
cian, Andrea Schaeffer-Pautz,
M.D. said that she became
aware that some of her
patients did not know how to
prepare nutritious meals using
these foods. Pautz is board cer-
tified in Internal Medicine and
Holistic Medicine and prac-
tices at the Persephone
Healing Arts Center.
In the course of doing nutri-
tional assessments and coun-
seling in her practice, she said
that she saw that people "do
not eat the way we are sup-
posed to. They eat the wrong
foods and fast foods."
"What we now take for
granted as a normal day's fare

would have been considered
an extravagant feast by many
of our ancestors," she said.
"Whole grains were the pri-
mary staples of the world's
Whole wheat, corn, oats,
millet, barley, quinoa are
grains that add "a rainbow of
nutrients" to the diet.
However, it,s difficult for peo-
ple to know how to make
grains tasteful or to prepare a
variety of vegetables and
fruits, she said. As a result,
people are not getting the rec-
ommended minimum serving
of these foods.
About two years ago, Pautz
began offering classes as one
"concrete thing" she could do

to help her patients be more
successful in improving their
The classes "arose as a
need"and are about food
preparation, variety and cre-
ativity, not calorie counting or
for discussing medical issues,
she said.
Grains can be used in
casseroles, soups, and mixed
with vegetables for both hot
dishes and salads. Everyone
knows how to prepare meat,
she said, and the grain and
vegetable dishes she creates
can be served either with or
without meat.
Food preparation cannot
take forever but it is possible
to create reasonable and quick
dishes that are delicious, she
said. By adding fresh herbs, a
little cheese, or other ingredi-
ents, dishes made with whole
grains and vegetables can, be
"totally delicious."
While the food preparation
classes were initially for her
patients and their families,

Pautz said that the classes are
open to the public.
The next food preparation
class will be on Friday, Jan. 26,
at the Persephone Healing Arts
Center. The topic will be
Grain and Vegetable
Casseroles using all organic
The two-hour class will
begin at 5:30 p.m. and partici-
pants will have an opportuni-

pared during the class.

is available at 246-3583; the
fee for the class is $75.

Nease lost to the Rams, 2-1,
in the championship game of
the Akers event on Dec. 18.
Prior to the Orlando show-
case, which featured several,
state championship teams as
well as Class 6A runner-up

was still trying to get a handle
on this year's Nease scuad.
The two-time defending Class

as a barometer to judge the

said. "When it gets down to
the regionals and those kind
of games, sometimes whoever

Silverberg observed renewed

They're Tebow's Gators now


Fresh off Monday's national
championship victory over
Ohio State, fans of the Florida
Gators are already dreaming of
multiple titles to come when
Tim Tebow takes over as quar-
terback next season.
Tebow, a freshman who
guided Nease High to a state
championship in 2005, was
hand-selected by Gators coach
Urban Meyer to run his
spread-option offense. The
6'3", 229-pound QB is a dual
threat with a cannon-like left
arm and powerful legs that
Meyer relied upon for tough
yards in spot duty throughout
the 2006 campaign.
But now, with a BCS title in
Florida's rearview mirror,
Tebow must move from the
realm of "potential" into the
arena of expectations from a
demanding Gator Nation.
"I'm going to have a lot of
time to prepare for that, and
it's going to be fun," Tebow
told USA Today after throwing
a one-yard TD pass and run-
ning for another score against
Ohio State.
"It's something to look for-
ward to. Just being on the
headsets this year, and trying
to visualize everything and see
the defenses from the sideline,
that helps you stay ready, too.
But it does get easier when
you get in the game."
Florida fans got tantalizing
glimpses of Tebow's potential,

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow fires a pass during warm-ups before last year's game against

Gators and Leak make statements

After Monday night's
mismatch in the BCS
championship bout out
in Arizona, the feeling here is
that the critics were right -
Michigan should have been in
the game. Maybe the
Wolverines could have.
stopped Florida. Ohio State
sure couldn't.
The Gators made the
Buckeyes look like Georgia
playing Florida. And we all
know the Bulldogs can't stop
the Gators with a court
So Urban Meyer has made a
fool out of those who said he
could win in lesser leagues,
but wait until the SEC gets
him. Well, the 2006 Florida
Gators proved they could
whip just about anybody.
Except, of course, Auburn.
The Gators rode over,
around and through the
Buckeyes, 41-14. The score
Monday night didn't tell the
whole story. After the first
half, the Buckeyes were as far
out of it as Michigan -
which didn't even make the

1, 1.,th


trip to the desert.
Late President Gerald Ford's
old team might have fared
better than Ohio State, which
put the outcome in doubt
only in the opening moments
when Ted Ginn, Jr. took the
kickoff and shot past the
Gators like he was riding a
missile. (By the way, nice
missed call on that holding
penalty during the return,
men in stripes.)
That 7-0 lead lasted only as
long as Florida's first at-bat.

The Gators, behind the crisp
passing of Chris Leak, took
the ensuing kick and method-
ically worked their way down
field to touchdown territory
almost as if the Buckeyes had
returned to the locker room
for a bathroom break.
At the end of the first quar-
ter it was 14-7. At the half it
was 34-14 and the Gators
never looked back, except to
view the carnage they had
The Glassy-eyes, er,
Buckeyes, especially coach Jim
Tressel, looked dazed almost
from the start. Tressel seemed
absorbed with reading a
paper, no doubt the glowing
predictions that his team
would roll to another nation-
al championship. Or perhaps
it was the Help Wanted sec-
Let's hear it for that
Georgia-slaying defense,
which continued its wrecking
ways to the BCS title game.
All season long acclaim was
heaped upon Florida's offense,
but Meyer's defense and its
speed was the key to success.

And the critics said UF
couldn't win big with Leak
behind center. They just had
to put him out to pasture and
install the young Nease phe-
nom, Tim Tebow. But by
craftily using both, Meyer
found the secret formula.
As good as the Gators teams
of the Steve Spurrier era were,
compared to this season's ver-
sion they looked almost like
The Buckeyes were unde-
feated and looked almost
invincible. Until they met
Florida. Old Buckeye Woody
Hayes must still be whirling
in his grave. If he'd been on
the sideline Monday night,
think of all the Gators he
could have socked.
Leak deserves all the praise
he is receiving because he led
his team to the title. He
should go down with the
greatest of modern-day quar-
terbacks, Peyton Manning,
Tom Brady, Byron Leftwich.
They say this Gators team
could beat the Jacksonville
Jaguars. Then again, that's not
really saying much, is it?

Gators won national title, but will they lose their teeth?

Question: Dr. Smith, when
was Gatorade invented at
the University of Florida?
Answer: In 1965, Florida
physician Robert Cade began
studying the effects that dehy-
dration had on Gator football
players. During strenuous
workouts, games, and practice
it was found that the body
levels of sodium, water, and
sugar dropped.
Dr. Cade began to devise a
potion that would rapidly
raise these levels back to nor-
"Cade's Cola" as it was origi-
nally called, was first used
during a Gator game at Florida
Field in 1965.
At first it was not an over-
whelming success, simply
because the players didn't
readily take to the taste. Dr.
Cade's wife suggested some
lemon-lime flavoring and
"Gatorade" was invented.
The first full season that
Gatorade was used was 1966,
the year that Steve Spurrier
won the Heisman Trophy.
Unfortunately, the doctors


couldn't take any credit for
that, for Spurrier preferred to
drink Coca-Cola during the
Today, Gatorade sales total
about $2.3 billion per year.
The University of Florida
receives about $6 million, and
Dr. Cade and his colleagues
who helped invent it, also
share a large royalty check.
With the money, they fund 30
scholarships to the University
of Florida each year, and have

helped finance organ trans-
plants for indigent patients.
Of course, the most impor-
tant part of their research was
for the need for rehydration
during exercise.
The best way to do this is
with water, but the additional
sodium and carbohydrates
found in Gatorade are of ben-
For more on this topic, read
Gatorade, Part II
Now, as we have just dis-
cussed, there are benefits
which can be achieved by
drinking Gatorade. Again, the
carbohydrates help maintain
or replace stores that are lost
during exercise.
However, according to a
new study, Gatorade is quite
hard on the teeth. In fact, it
was shown to erode teeth
faster than Coke.
The study was conducted by

researcher Leslie A. Ehlen, a
student at the University of
Iowa School of Dentistry and
was presented recently at the
annual meeting of the
American Association for
Dental Research in Orlando.
Researchers soaked teeth in
test tubes filled with regular
Coke, Diet Coke, Gatorade,
Red Bull, or 100 percent apple
juice. After 25 hours, the teeth
were examined under a micro-
Enamel erosions were seen
on all of the teeth studies, but
Gatorade was found to be the
most corrosive, followed by
Red Bull, Coke, Diet Coke and
apple juice.
This study contrasted a 2002
Ohio State University study of
304 athletes which found no
link between sports-drink use
and dental erosion. The study
was sponsored by Quaker
Oats, which makes Gatorade.

tine work?
A. Creatine is an amino
acid, which is stored by the
muscle as an energy unit
called phosphocreatine.
During exercise, this energy
unit is broken down, fueling
muscle contractions. This fuel
is naturally replaced from ani-
mal meats that you consume
and through production by
your body.
Taking creatine supplements
can help replace these stores,
and with proper exercise, crea-
tine can also boost increases
in muscle mass.
Creatine supplements have
long been taken by body
builders and football players
in order to increase their mus-
cle mass. Taking creatine
alone will not tend to lead to
an increase in muscle mass -
exercise is important.
.Creatine supplements come
in many forms and can be
found in health food stores,

and some groceries and phar-
The amount taken is based
on body weight, and taking
mega-doses does not help.
No long-term studies on
potential side effects of crea-
tine have been done. Before
starting a creatine program,
you should talk to your doc-

Irish. mouths are smiling
after tasting a tempting fare
at Culhane's Irish Pub,
including their most raved
about "Corned Beef and
Cabbage". Culhane's ver-
sion of this classic features
thin-sliced brisket served
with cabbage sauteed in gar-
lic bacon and caramelized
onions. Champ mashed
potatoes complete this
mouth watering dish.
While not a traditional
Irish meal, corned beef and
cabbage has been an integral
part of Irish-American cul-
ture, which the Culhane sis-
ters, originally from
Limerick, Ireland, include in
their cuisine. It was devel-
oped when Irish immigrants
in the eastern United States
used corned beef from Jewish

butchers instead of
pork in their tradi-
tional dish of bacon
and cabbage -
because of the lower
cost and scarcity of
food sources.
Culhane's recom-
mends slow cooking
S the brisket with
chopped onions,
carrots and celery in
a roasting pan. The
brisket is mixed
with one part Guinness Stout
and two parts water enough
to cover the roast, then coat
the top of the brisket with
ground cloves and add dry
mustard to the broth. The
brisket is covered and cooked
to an internal temperature of
200 degrees.
