Mary Jane Little, director of the St.
Johns County Public Library System,
has been given a written reprimand
for her role in asking Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch employees for signa-
tures in a political contest last year.
The reprimand followed an investi-
gation by St. Johns County into an
elections fraud complaint against
Little filed with the state by Mitzi
Thomas, director of the Ponte Vedra
branch who was put on administra-
tive leave during the county's investi-
gation.
Interim County Administrator
Wally Kropacek said Thursday that
Little was presented with the findings
of the investigation and. "freely
admitted" that she violated county
administrative codes.


Little admitted that she drove to the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library
and asked employees to sign petition
cards to waive the election filing fee
for former Commissioner Karen Stern,
who was running for a second term,
Kropacek said.
"This is a clear violation of St. Johns
County Administrative Codes," the
reprimand letter says.
"This is a serious offense. . You
should be setting an example," it says.
Little did not return a phone call ask-
ing for comment.
The written reprimand was issued
to Little by Jerry Cameron, who was
moved into the position of assistant
county administrator several weeks
ago from his position as director of
special projects.
Cameron joins Joe Vonasek and
Darrell Locklear on the team of assis-
tant administrators, overseeing about


eight county departments, including
library services.
Because Little has no previous
record of disciplinary problems,
Cameron said Thursday, a written rep-
rimand was deemed appropriate.
The letter recommends that Little
review the county's policies regarding
county staff involvement with elec-
tions and elected officials.
The policy prohibits staff members
from participating in county elections
while using county vehicles, on coun-
ty time, or on county property.
Upon any further violations of this
policy, the letter says, punishment
may be as severe as termination.
The St. Johns County legal depart-
ment is still reviewing several allega-
tions surrounding the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library and Thomas,
who is still on non-punitive, paid
leave.


The review will consider an anony-
mous e-mail sent to all five county
commissioners that accuses Thomas
of having a vendetta against Little
and conspiring to have Little removed
from her position.
Thomas filed the elections fraud
complaint against Little in September,
claiming she forced employees to sign
the petition cards for Stern.
The complaint was investigated by
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and was dropped in late
November.
Kropacek said he has been instruct-
ed by the county legal department
not to say anything about the investi-
gation.
County Attorney Patrick
McCormack said that he hopes to be
finished with the investigation next
week, after which time he will make
the findings public.

i thanks in

STAFF WRITER
Members of the Nease High
marching band on Wednesday
gave a Ponte Vedra Beach
benefactor their thanks in the
best way they knew how by
giving him his own perform-
ance.
Carrying their instruments
into a building in the Veranda
complex on State Road A1A,
the teens gathered about 4
p.m. in a conference room to
entertain Richard Willich,
whose gifts to St. Johns
County youth in the past 13
months have topped $88,000.
Of that total, $35,000 went
to the Nease band from
Willich, president and CEO of
Medical Development
International, a medical serv-
ices company headquartered
in Ponte Vedra Beach.
In Willich's third-floor con-
ference room, the band played
"The Star Spangled Banner" in
honor of Willich's service in
the Marine Corps. He reached
the rank of colonel.
SThey also performed a tune
familiar to Panthers fans -
the ESPN theme song the
band plays whenever the

Panthers make a touchdown,
during time outs, when the
team runs out onto the field
and at other points during
football games.
Before heading into the
Veranda building, the teens
practiced outside in a parking


lot, spilling onto a sidewalk
that separates the Veranda
from A1A.
Willich's first gift to the
band was a $20,000 donation
in February 2006, which came
with a pledge that he would
add up to $15,000 more to the


band's coffers if the band
would raise that amount on its
own. Natalie Kunkel, presi-
dent of the Nease Band
Boosters, said at the event that
she notified Willich when the
band's fund-raising reached
the matching $15,000.


"I wrote him a letter in
November of last year," she
said, "and said we had reached
our goal of $15,000.

St. Johns County
Commissioners agreed
Wednesday to once again
delay their decision on
whether to build three pub-
lic pools one in Ponte
Vedra at a cost of $1.5
million each.
Commissioner Ron
Sanchez asked to have more
time to work on a proposal
that would make the pools
more affordable for the
county.
Though the decision to
delay the vote was unani-
mous, the commission
stands divided on the issue
of public pools.
Commissioner Tom
Manuel, representing Ponte
Vedra, said he won't sup-
port the pools because of
the high annual costs of
maintaining them.
"The reality is we are a
county, and counties don't
provide the level of service
that this county does,"
Manuel said in a special
meeting Wednesday.
But Commissioner Jim
Bryant sang Ponte Vedra's
praises and said the
Northeastern part of the
county deserves a pool.
"Ponte Vedra has been
more than good to the rest
of the county over the
years," Bryant said, adding
that the area doesn't have


much vacant land left to
expand recreational ball
fields.
"Ponte Vedra has always
been an exporter of tax dol-
lars."
Instead of the pools,
Manuel proposed adding
two projects to the list of
capital improvements: a
cultural arts center in St.
Augustine Beach and a
Senior Center in downtown
St. Augustine.
Funding for the two proj-
ects, which would total $3.7
million, was requested at a
special meeting in January.
Commissioner Cyndi
Stevenson vehemently
opposed the addition of the
two projects.
She said though she origi-
nally objected to the pools,
it was not her intention to
add any more projects to
the "giant" capital improve-
ments list.
Manuel said his reason
for supporting the arts and
senior centers is based on
his belief that recreation is
not for children only.
But Stevenson countered
that "the constituency for
community pools is not
limited to young people."
"The swimming pools
were highly sought after by
the senior citizens as well,"
she said.
That point was echoed by
Pam Kessler, president of


the Ponte Vedra Athletic
Association, who has spo-
ken to Ponte Vedra groups
to drum up support for a
pool.
Facilities such as pools
and tennis courts serve peo-
ple of all ages, Kessler said.
And the Athletic
Association has volunteered
countless hours of service
and has contributed large
amounts of money to
improve recreation in Ponte
Vedra, she said.
"These organizations pro-
vide huge dollars worth of
services and you don't real-
ize it," she said.
"To just shove kids aside .
. that's not even respectful
to the people who serve this
community."
Manuel responded by say-
ing that the amount of
county money spent on
recreation far outweighs
that spent on seniors and
the arts.
"It's just not right in my
opinion, Ms. Kessler," he
said.
Sanchez said he hopes to
be finished with his pool
proposal by the next special
meeting.
Stevenson said she, too,
has been working for the
past year on her own pro-
posal and plans to present
that at the next meeting, as
well.

Study shows need for bus into PV


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Transportation officials
working to'extend bus service
into St. Johns County still need
information to determine how
to serve potential riders.
Project consultants with JTA
Tuesday met at Jacksonville
Beach City Hall to update city
officials and business owners
on the progress of the study
and get a feel on where to go
from here.
S"The main issue is bringing
people living in Duval County
into St. Johns County for
employment," said Fred Haley,
JTA Service Planning Manager.
"We feel that there is some
need, some potential for tran-
sit in the area."
Jacksonville Beach City
Councilor Penny Christian
first broached the idea last
spring to help serve businesses
with many employees such as
Baptist Medical Center Beaches
in south Jacksonville Beach
and The Sawgrass Marriott in
Ponte Vedra Beach.
JTA counted the number of
employees at each business


and their zip codes to deter-
mine their proximity to work.
At the Sawgrass Marriott,
only 97 of the 475 employees
live in St. Johns County, with
67 in Jacksonville Beach.
Manager Jeffrey Oliasami said
the hotel is short approximate-
ly 98 employees.
Approximately 544 of 842
hospital employees live out-
side of the Beaches area, the
survey said. Only 131 employ-
ees live in Jacksonville Beach
and 85 are in St. Johns County,
according to a JTA survey.
Haley said there are several
steps that need to be taken to
complete a more in-depth
study, including public input,
planning strategies and fund-
ing sources.
"We have to know what all
of our options are before we
can develop a recommenda-
tion and come up with a deci-
sion," he said.
Haley said a full service route
may not be the best option to
improve transportation across
the county line.
"We have had service in St.
Johns County that did not


have a high ridership," he said.
"Sunshine Bus had a route that
went down A1A to the
Sandcastle Shopping Center [in
Jacksonville Beach] that was
discontinued after three or four
months."
The small service, subcon-
tracted out of St. Augustine,
was not well known in Ponte
Vedra, Oliasami said.
Another option proposed
was a large carpool van or
small shuttle bus provided to
businesses at a "reasonable
cost" by JTA to transport
employees to and from work.
As an incentive, employers
would receive a direct tax cred-
it of' $110 per employee to
cover the transportation costs.
"If we want to plan a full
service bus route, that could
take six months to imple-
ment," Haley said. "If we pro-
vide a van, we just need to
make sure there is [one] avail-
able and get the number of
interested people together to
make a commitment."
Mark Slyter, hospital admin-
istrator at Baptist Medical
Center Beaches, attended the


meeting and said the survey
doesn't ask the right questions
to the right people.
"We need to survey riders in
the area we want to bring
employees in from," he said.
"We need to know if employers
offered this service, how far
would you be willing to ride [to
get to work]? Distance and
time are critical for viability."
Mike Miller, JTA's director of
external affairs, said the
authority plans to partner with
the businesses and the Beaches
and Ponte Vedra Chambers of
Commerce to identify poten-
tial riders.
"We are going to take small
steps and work with the major
employers to get a feel for who
wants to participate and get a
program going," Miller said.
"We need to determine what
needs to be done before the
next meeting, who is interest-
ed and what needs to be asked
to find out if there is even
enough interest to participate
in a program like this."

Several planning and development departments for St. Johns
County moved into a new building last month, leaving the county
administration building at 4020 Lewis Speedway virtually empty.
The new building is south of the current administration building
but on the same property in St. Augustine. Commissioners'
offices, administration and the legal department are some of the
only offices left in the building, which will soon be renovated and
taken over by court services.


Tax questions raised


FROM STAFF
St. Johns County
Commissioner Cyndi
Stevenson said Thursday that
doubling the homestead
exemption would leave the
county more than $17 million
short with few revenue sources
to make up the difference.
Gov. Charlie Crist has pro-
posed increasing the $25,000
homestead exemption to
$50,000, which would decrease
the county's tax roll by $1.108
billion, according to Sharon
Outland, property appraiser for
St. Johns County.
With an average overall mill-


age rate of 16 mills, the added
exemption would mean
$17,728,000, or 11 percent to
12 percent of the county gener-
al fund budget, Stevenson said.
"It's fine, if they don't want
government to do all this
stuff," she said.
"We only have a couple of
major revenue sources," she
said, adding that revenue
sources such as impact fees or
user fees don't "get that kind of
yield" that a property tax gets.
Stevenson said she planned
to attend a meeting in
Jacksonville last evening on
the proposals for tax reform.

The Leader's Opinion



Fix for Penman


Road must not


reduce function

Improved bus stops. Stormwater swales to replace
deep ditches. Marked crosswalks. A better tree
canopy. More attention to detail on sidewalk con-
struction.
All of these and many more suggestions were
made by the traffic engineer hired by the city of
Jacksonville Beach to evaluate how to improve
Penman Road.
Many of the suggestions have obvious merit. The
roadway, which is an essential north-south corridor
through the Beaches, needs and deserves attention.
A city of Jacksonville Beach-owned electric substa-
tion along the road's midpoint is attractively land-
scaped and offers promise of what is possible along
the entire stretch of roadway.
The goals of any road improvement must, by
necessity, focus on safety first. A more attractive
road is certainly desirable, but safety should not be
compromised.
We are intrigued by many of the suggestions
offered to make Penman Road better.
At the same time, we are mindful of how impor-
tant the road is in our transportation patterns.
Making sure the road's function is not impaired is
critical.
Suggestions to add roundabouts, brick pavers and
parking along the road should be carefully vetted
before any consideration is given to implementa-
tion.
Innovation can too quickly become experimenta-
tion and too much is riding on Penman literally
for creative suggestions to be implemented blind-
ly.
Lower speed limits have been suggested and that
proposal is bound to be questioned by many drivers
who wonder, during rush hour, if anybody ever gets
to drive as fast as 35 miles per hour the current
limit.
Once plans are developed, studied, held up to
public scrutiny and set to implement, the county
should be ready to contribute the funds needed to
improve Penman Road, owned and, frankly, neg-
lected by the county.
No matter what changes are agreed to, however, we
would urge all involved to make sure that function
does not take a back seat to form when improving
Penman Road.

Leader's coverage


of Nease probation


is right on target


To the editor:
I want to commend you for
your article concerning the
Nease High School penalty and
appeal' process, which'
appeared in The Leader.
Throughout this entire situa-
tion,. I have waited for some-
one to state in print what com-
mon sense tells us is the truth.
I believe that this train-
wreck of accusations, denials,
posturing, political maneu-
vering and administrative
CYA has made a perfect case


for revamping the FHSAA
structure and regulations.
Hopefully our legislators will
see this as well.
I think it is too bad that
other media in this area have
chosen to report on this situ-
ation with such bias.
Thank you for taking the
time to look at all the facts
and speak with the voice of
reason.

Sunlight is the best way to


sanitize the U.S. Congress


watching Congress
tackle reform has
been interesting
and even uplifting, but in the
end I'm disappointed. Our
representatives on Capitol
Hill seem to be missing an
opportunity to bring real and
lasting change there.
The more I look at the
problems of recent years the
lackadaisical attitude toward
ethics enforcement, the leg-
islative shortcuts, the out-
sized influence of special
interests, the secret earmarks,
the terrible partisanship, the
pernicious influence of
mountains of cash the more
I am persuaded that one fun-
damental reform addresses
many of them: sunshine.
My thinking is simple. The
more exposed members of
Congress feel, the less likely
it is we will see the miscon-
duct and institutional short-
comings that led to this
year's reform effort. Congress
belongs, in the end, to the
American people, and behav-
ior that can't stand the light
of day has no place there.

LEE HAMILTON
GUEST COLUMNIST



Sure, some national securi-
ty matters need to be han-
dled in private, but there is
much that should be made
public. Campaign donations
and lobbying expenses, for
instance, should promptly be
published online and made
easily searchable, so that we
know right away who is
financing whom and to what
end. There is no legitimate
reason for keeping the spon-
sors of earmarks or their


intended beneficiaries under
wraps. And shouldn't House
and Senate meetings be view-
able online as well?
Democracy is a process, not a
result; Americans need to see
that process.
This change will not be
easy. Members of Congress
resist making their doings
more public because it's more
comfortable and easier for
them out of the public eye.
So if there is to be greater
"transparency," it will come
about largely because the
American people demand it.
Powerful interests certainly
let members of Congress
know they're watching. The
American people should be
able to, too. So, next time
you run into your representa-
tive, put the question to him
or her bluntly, "Do you, or do
you not, want to let the sun-
shine in?"

Lee Hamilton is director of
the Center on Congress at
Indiana University. He was a
member of the U.S. House of
Representatives for 34 years.


HOYLE DEMPSEY
COLUMNIST



Prep for


Feb. 14


takes a


real plan

his week's column is a
friendly reminder to
my fellow manly men
that there is a big event
coming up. I can already
hear you guys reading this,
"Tell us about it Brother
Hoyle, the Pro Bowl
Saturday night! Will I get
pizza or wings, chips and
dip or tortillas and salsa?"
Gentlemen, calm down!
Think about a special date in
February for your wife or
girlfriend, and I'm not talk-
ing about the white sale at
Penney's! Valentine Day is
coming and you still have
time to plan for it, if you'll
listen to me.
I confess, I. wasn't really
focused on old Cupid's big
event until my old buddy
Bubba Jr. called me from
Palatkey after Sunday's game.
I figured he wanted to know
how I liked the Super Bowl .
I picked up the phone and
said, "Hey buddy, I knew
you'd be calling. My money
was on the Bears all the
way!" .
There was silence for '5sec-
onds and then Bubba cleared
his throat, "Ahem, Hoyle, I
am so disappointed that you
thought I'd be calling about
the games, or.to once again
gloat about the fact that my
Gators are the National
Champs. I am calling about
a date in February far more
important than a football
game. I'm talking about
Valentine's day and to give
you advice you can pass on
in that newspaper thing you
write!"
Bubba's first heads up was
to make my next visit to "the
Wal-Mart" be a trip down the
candy aisle. "To be honest
with you Hoyle, I'm gonna
go to Sam's Club and try to
stock up on a few pounds of
them heart shaped chocolate
boxes for Shirley Q! I'll
freeze the rest of them and
I'll be set for the next few
years. I figure I'll save on the
bulk purchase, and you
know the price will probably
go up over the next few
years! We're talking inflation
and I'm talking double sav-
ings buddy!"
My friend next proposed
that every man should look
his best and smell his best for
his sweetheart on this very
special day. "Take a shower
with soap, put on extra
deodorant and a quality
cologne: I suggest some-
thing that compliments your
chewing gum: English
Leather goes hand and hand
with Juicy Fruit and Brut will
complement Spearmint!"
Bubba suggests that any
snuff dipping or "chaw" be
kept to a minimum until
after desert is served.
My conversation with
Bubba on how to be a "do
be", not a "don't be" lasted
half an hour. Some sugges-
tions I have opted not to
pass on to you. He did say
that you should plan for
your after dinner dental
needs before the big event.
"Have five, maybe six tooth-
picks in your pocket you can
easily get to after the roman-
tic meal, especially if y'all are
having fried steak. Even the
nicest car key takes second


fiddle to a tooth pick'in any
etiquette book!" Bubba
reminds us "Surprisingly
enough, even the classiest
truck stops have been known
to run out of tooth picks, so
be prepared!"

In J-school at the University of
Florida, I learned about some fool TV
reporter who went live while standing
on the roof of a tall building as it
swayed from hurricane force winds.
You may have heard of that reporter
- his name is Dan Rather.
Well, this reporter has now made her
own little contribution to the list of
dangerous stunts in the hopes that
one day, just maybe, someone will say
that I was one of the greats.
It all started with a story about a very
nice beekeeper in Ponte Vedra named
Sam Van Leer, who is speaking at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library at 2
p.m. Saturday..
After interviewing the beekeeper by
telephone, I drove to his home in Old
Palm Valley, off County Road 210, to
get the perfect photograph for the
story.
Upon my arrival I saw that the four
beehives that he maintains were on the
opposite shore of a small retention
pond behind his home.
I asked Mr. Van Leer if we could walk
to the hives and take a closer look, and ,
he kindly obliged. -i;.u,.
Although he has protective hats and
other safety gear, and he more than
graciously offered them to me, I, being
the fearless reporter, declined.
"If he's not going to wear the net-
ting, I guess I don't need to either," I
thought.
This was my first mistake.
After walking around the pond, we
approached the hives and heard the
murmur of thousands of busy, buzzing
bees wafting through the chilly air.
I quickly saw that to get the best
photo, I was going to have to get in
front of the hives, which were lined up
along the pond only about 5 or 6 feet
away from the water's edge.
That was my second mistake.
You see, the bees fly into a slit near
the bottom of the hive, which resem-
bles a mini airport terminal.
The bees have their flight patterns all
mapped out, zooming in and lifting off
one after the other like tiny airplanes.
I got the photographs I needed and
began to make my way to the back of
the hives.
Mr. Van Leer advised me to stay very
low when walking in front of the hives
so as not to interrupt the flight pattern.
Apparently I wasn't low enough.
Unbeknownst to me, one bee was
heading right toward my head.
I could almost hear the control
tower radioing to the renegade bee,
"Pull up! Pull up!"
It wouldn't have been so bad if, say,
the bee had flown into my shoulder or
my hand, but as luck would have it, it
crash-landed in my left eye.
In a panic, I swatted like a maniac to
get the bee out, but my eyelashes
instinctively were clamped down on
the suicidal bee like one of those fly-
trap plants that just caught its dinner.
As the bee and I both struggled to
free it from its eyelash trap, I thought,
"This is probably not going to erd well
for either one of us."
Moments later the bee was released,
leaving behind its stinger planted firm-
ly in my eyelid, way too close to my
eyeball for comfort.
Mr. Van Leer was very hospitable
and took me back to his house,
removed the stinger, and big sur-
prise put toothpaste on my eyelid,
which was now the size of a golf ball.
Toothpaste, he informed me, helps
reduce the pain and stinging.
And to make me feel better, he told
me the bee died after stinging me.
I sat in his kitchen for about 15 min-
utes with some ice on my eye to reduce
the swelling. I drove myself back to
the office and finished my stories for
Wednesday's paper, but I definitely
looked like Quasimodo for a couple
more hours.
Ah, the sacrifices we make in the
name of journalism. I might not have
minded except all of my coworkers
were not so much solicitous as amused.
That really stung.


Roundabouts for Penman


would be a big mistake


To the editor:
The Penman Road subject needs to be
reviewed again. I was reading The Leader
on Wednesday Feb. 7 and your state-
ments about putting in roundabouts is
stupid. Nobody in this town uses their
blinkers as it is. When you are in the
roundabout and someone is waiting to get
into the roundabout it is important that
you use your blinkers to let that person
know that you are turning off of the
roundabout and onto a side street. Have
you Mayor Peyton been to the round-
about in Ponte Vedra on 210 and Micklers
Road? If not go try that one before you
make 'it happen on Penman Road.
In New Jersey they have a million of
those roundabouts or "rotary" as they are
called up there, and they are deadly. Keep
the traffic lights and pave the road. There
is no parking on Penman now, Why
would you add parking on there after all


this time. Why add bike lanes? There are
many other sides streets a lot safer then
Penman Road for kids on bikes to ride to
wherever they are going. Stop spending
money doing stupid, stoopid things to the
beach to try and improve things for the
here and now. We need to look to the
future!!!!
You Mayor Peyton take care of things
on the other side of the ditch your side
of the ditch "
Making Beach Boulevard six lanes is
already obsolete now, and can't or won't
be able to accommodate the traffic,when
all the building along Beach Boulevard is
done.
My father, Gib Dannehower always said
that Jacksonville "Has no vision for the
future, just the here and the now" and he
was so right.

AB police doing right


to enforce noise laws


To the editor:
There have been two models for dealing
with noise pollution in Duval County. The
first model, which is that utilized by the
City of Jacksonville, depends on monitor-
ing the decibel levels of alleged polluters
and then, based upon the information
gathered, taking the polluters to court.
This approach has two flaws when the
polluters are venues for amplified music,
particularly in an outdoor setting. First, the
decibel level of noise doesn't determine
how far all of the sounds travel; that is, the
lower, or bass, sounds travel much farther
than the higher, or treble, sounds, and
atmospheric conditions can influence the
distance sounds travel. My own experience
with Hurricane Hatties was' that the club
was mostly in compliance with the decibel
..leyveLa measured by technicians from the
.,ci.ty,; but the bass sounds .oftenacontinued to
penetrate the inside' of my house, which' is
across the Intracoastal Waterway from what
was the site of Hurricane Hatties.
The second flaw has to do with the 19th-
century concept of government that under-
pins the approach to noise pollution of the
City of Jacksonville. Government is per-
ceived to be a neutral third party that refer-
ees disputes between two equal parties; this
is the pro-business, anti-social approach of
At-large Councilwoman Elaine Brown. This
concept is absurd on the face of it:
Neighboring residents were defenseless
while HH had the potential to disrupt our
nighttime sleep at any time, six or seven
nights a week, from 10 PM until 2 AM --
and the club did so for almost four years
until it went bankrupt.
It is true that HH was cited and fined a
total of $8,000, but the money went to the


city as revenue to pay for monitoring pol-
lution; in no way did either the fines or the
monitoring ameliorate the involuntary
sleeplessness and disruptions imposed
upon nearby homeowners for years.
Jacksonville Beach initially used the City
of Jacksonville model, but at some point
the JB Council concluded that the residents
of Jacksonville Beach had the right to peace
and tranquility within their dwellings,
especially after 10 p.m. As a consequence,
when Hopson Road residents were subject-
ed to noise from the nearby Lighthouse
Grille, the city ultimately stood with the
residents and not the restaurant.
The recent noise problems at the Fly's Tie
in Atlantic Beach (Leader, Jan. 19, 2007)
appear to be the result of two innovations
by the pub: the introduction of amplified
musical acts and performances that, begin
around 10 p.m. My understanding, is,that
before these innovations there were few
complaints about noise emanating from
the Fly's Tie.
Residents in Atlantic Beach, by law,
should not be disturbed by .extraneous
noise within their residences from an out-
side source, particularly after 10 p.m., and I
believe that the actions taken by AB police
are not only legal but equitable. The Fly's
Tie has had a reputation as a place for fam-
ilies; if the owners want the Fly's Tie to
evolve into a club, then they need to go
before the AB Development Board and the.
Commission, demonstrate that they have a
plan and the capacity to baffle the noise,
and obtain the permission of elected offi-
cials as Freebird Live! did.

Wal-Mart will not pay

for cops that will be

needed for it in NB


To the editor:
As has been published pre-
viously, sales taxes from busi-
nesses in Neptune Beach do
not all go to Neptune Beach;
instead, sales taxes are sub-
mitted to Duval County
where they are shared
between the cities based on
population ratio. As a very
small percentage of total
Duval County population,
Neptune Beach receives a
very small share of sales
taxes. And the property tax
that is Neptune Beach's share
is also very small compared
to the share that goes to
Jacksonville. I believe the
Neptune Beach city manager
already estimated that the
city of Neptune Beach would
receive about $4000 total
from combined property tax
and sales tax from a Wal-Mart
in Neptune Beach, with the
lion's share going to
Jacksonville.
Studies have shown that a
measurable increase in crime
occurs around Wal-Marts, so
one or more additional police
will be needed if the Wal-
Mart is built here. The cost of
adding a police officer to the
Neptune Beach police depart-
ment has been estimated at


Leader graphic
showed very
poor choice

To the editor:
Poor taste is the bottom line.
It was bad enough that your
words so graphically described
the incident, [Gotta Go in
Freestyle Feb. 7, 2007] but to
have the silhioette included
brought it to the level of gigg-
ley, elementary school stu-
dents.

Jacksonville Beach


$100,000, including issuing
the new police officer a car
and equipment, and provid-
ing required training. And it
would cost maybe $70,000
per year for each police offi-
cer on patrol, all of which
comes out of Neptune Beach's
budget, not Jacksonville's.
Do the math: 1 extra
police officer ($70,000 per
year) compared to the taxes a
Wal-Mart would bring into
our city ($4,000 per year) =
$66,000 deficit. Neptune
Beach will have to increase
annual property taxes by
almost $10.00 per man,
woman and child living in
Neptune Beach to pay for
that. And if two additional
police officers are needed,
that would about double the
tax increase. And we'll all be
paying more taxes to deal
with Wal-Mart-generated
crime even though the vast
majority of citizens don't
want it here, even though it
doesn't fit our community,
and whether we patronize the
store or not. That is NOT a
WIN-WIN situation in my
book!

POLICE BEAT


PONTE VEDRA BEACH
An Atlantic Beach man and
a Ponte Vedra Beach woman
.were arrested this week fol-
lowing an argument that
began between the woman,
identified as Candice Marie
Spivey, 21, of Sailfish Drive in
Dolphin Cove, and her room-
mate's brother.
Deputies reported that the
argument began about 5 p.m.
Monday over the use of a
washcloth. As the argument
escalated, Spivey locked her-
self in a bathroom and called
a friend, police said.
The friend, identified as
Lucas Benjamin Brown, 28, of
Stern Drive East, Atlantic
Beach, allegedly entered the
house with a shotgun and
forced the victim to the floor,
and then kicked the man in
the face, according to the
report.
As the victim yelled out to
his brother, Brown walked
into the hallway of the resi-
dence and fired the shotgun
at a wall, police said. Brown
and Spivey left as the occu-
pants at the house called the
St. Johns County Sheriff's
Office.
Spivey later returned to the
house where deputies were
investigating the incident.
According to police, Brown
was charged with aggravated
assault, shooting into an
occupied dwelling and bat-
tery. Spivey was arrested and
charged with being a princi-
pal to aggravated assault,

shooting Into an occupied
dwelling, and battery.
Both were booked into the
St. Johns County jail. Brown
was held on a $6,000 bond,
and Spivey's bond was
$1,500.

A guest who had a bill of
$1,240 at the Ponte Vedra Inn
& Club was arrested at the
entrance drive of the club
around noon Tuesday after a
hotel desk manager reported
a guest was "drunk, rude and
not paying" the bill, deputies
reported.
Deputy James Weaver
reported that the 50-year-old
guest "started to curse and
became angry causing a
scene. The deputy drove the
man to the Ponte Vedra Beach
fire station on State Road A1A
to be examined because of his
intoxicated state, the deputy
reported.
The suspect was cleared for
transport, and at the St. Johns
County jail a breath sample
registered .30, more than
three times the legal limit of
.08. Weaver then took the
man to Flagler Hospital to be
evaluated, then returned him
to the jail.
Gary Walter Muhs was
charged with defrauding an
innkeeper of $300 or more, a
felony, and disorderly intoxi-
cation, a misdemeanor.

After much debate, the
Atlantic Beach city commis-
sion is expected Monday to
finally establish the fees for
renting the community centers
for an event during a final
reading of an ordinance at
Monday's meeting.
The ordinance, as it has been
proposed for final reading, will
charge a $100 fee with a $200
refundable deposit, as long as
there are no damages or viola-
tions of park rules, to use the
Adele Grage Cultural Center,
Jordan Park Community
Center and Donner Park
Community Center.
The commission debated
over the fees for the deposit
because people have taken
alcohol out of the buildings
and into public parks, which is
a violation of the city's code.
Mayor Don Wolfson had,
proposed a $500 refundable
deposit for any event that has
alcohol to serve as a reminder
that people cannot take alco-
hol into the adjacent parks.
However, some of the commis-
sioners disagreed with the
amount, stating that it was too
much to ask people to pay, and
they finally settled on a $200
deposit.
Parks and Recreation
Director Timmy Johnson has
ordered signs that will be post-
ed in the centers alerting
patrons that alcohol is not per-
mitted in the city parks, he
said.

Jacksonville Beach officials
had a bright idea to
encourage utility customers to
switch to more environmental-
ly friendly light bulbs.
The Energy Efficiency
Program promotes the use of
compact fluorescent lamps ver-
sus the standard incandescent
bulbs to reduce future electric
needs and save money by cut-
ting back on electric consump-
tion.
To publicize the project,
Beaches Energy Services will
distribute packages of six CFL
bulbs to 1,000 commercial util-
ity customers at no charge and
each residential customer will
receive one bulb with informa-
tion detailing the benefits of
the program.
The. cost of the bulbs for res-
idential and commercial cus-
tomers is $62,000, according


to utility director Don
Ouchley.
City officials solicited 70
bids and received 12 responses
from company. The lowest bid-
der that met the specifications
came from a well-known com-
pany close to home Wal-
Mart.
"I assume we're going to be
getting these items from the
Neptune Beach Wal-Mart,"
Mayor Fland Sharp quipped
amid snickers from Council
Chambers during a meeting
this week.
The retail chain that for
months has fought for the
right to open a Neptune Beach
store guaranteed delivery of
the packaged 13 watts CFL
bulbs in one day while other
delivery schedules ranged from
30 to 98 days from the other
bidders.
The energy efficient bulbs
use one fourth of the electrici-
ty of an incandescent bulb. A

Her willingness to help nets hospital cash awards

by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Ana Abdullah of Neptune
Beach has contributed thou-
sands of hours to helping staff
and patients at Baptist Medical
Center-Beaches.
She has earned awards for
her volunteering and she has
also earned cash awards for the
facility.
She was recently named one
of five Duval County winners
of Prudential CARES Volunteer
Grants Awards.
Abdullah earned her
Prudential award by giving
1,015 hours to the hospital last
year. All told, she has donated
9,410 hours to Baptist Medical
Center Beaches.
"I've just now applied for
another award I hope to get
this year. If you do over 1,000
hours, you get $1,000 from
Prudential," she said.
"Altogether I've won $3,250
for the hospital since 2002."
Abdullah, who moved to
Neptune Beach from
Jacksonville in 1959, has
served as an auxiliarian at the
Beaches hospital since retiring
from Prudential in 1993. After
36 years with the company,
she retired as human resources
senior retirement technician.
"I wouldn't do anything
else," Abdullah said as she
moves into her 14th year of
volunteering at the hospital.
"People ask me why I'm there,
and I tell them I have a service
creed: I expect to pass through
this life but once. If, therefore,
there is any kindness I can
show or any good I can do for
my fellow beings, let me do it
now. For I shall not pass this
way again."
Abdullah, who turns 80 May

with a smile, serves as a greeter

"You do this for nothing?"
she's frequently asked.
The mission of Baptist
Medical Center Beaches is to
provide accessible, quality
health-care services at a rea-
sonable cost in an atmosphere
that fosters respect and com-
passion.
When not involved at the
hospital, Abdullah frequently
can be found at Palms
Presbyterian Church in
Jacksonville Beach.
"I'm a lifelong Presbyterian
and a very active member at
Palms. I have sung [soprano]
in the choir for more than 45
years. I've served as an elder
and deacon. The church is my
life," she said.
"I love kids," said Abdullah,
who also provides child care at
Bailey's Gym in Jacksonville
Beach.
The other $1,000 award
recipients were Arthur
Brinson of Jacksonville, for
Bethune-Cookman College;
Carolyn Halliger for the
Jacksonville Gay Chorus; and
Jane Hendrix for the Cecil

Community Presbyterian invites all to art event


.by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
Community Presbyterian
Church's Preschool and
Kindergarten is hosting an art
event tomorrow and Sunday
to celebrate the school's her-
itage and the people who have
been part of CPPK.
Members of the community
are invited to make a hand
decorated tile for the church's
Recently -renovated school


building, said Barbara Lynn,
Director of the preschool and
kindergarten.
For a donation of $10 per
tile, artists can decorate a tile
that will be installed in the
foyer or in a hall in the pre-
school and kindergarten
building.
"We hope that former stu-
dents and anyone who has
served as a teacher will be
interested in donating a tile,"


said Lynn.
"Ann Rhodes, the first direc-
tor of the school, will be here,"
she said.
The school was established
in 1948 when Community
Presbyterian invited Mrs. W.H.
Garret to move her kinder-
garten to a church facility.
All proceeds from the tile
project will go to the CPC
Building Fund, according to a
press release from the school.


On Saturday, tiles can be
made from 10 a.m. to noon
and after the 8:30 a.m. and 11
a.m. services on Sunday.
Children currently attending
the school designed tiles for
the project earlier this month.
The completed tiles are
expected to be in place for a
dedication ceremony planned
for later this year, said Lynn.
The preschool and kinder-
garten has been holding classes

Both players were key cogs on
the Panthers team that won a
Class 4A state title in 2005 and
returned to the championship
game last season.
"You always dream about a
day like this, and now it's come
true," said Butler. "I just like
the school, the educational
opportunity and the chance to
continue playing football."
Defensive lineman Danny
Russell put his signature on an
offer to attend the University of
Connecticut, a school better
known for its men's and
women's basketball teams that
for gridiron success.

"I think a lot of people are

Several other members of the

from colleges but have yet to

Tronti is excited about



Ivy League opportunity


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
In November, when Nease
High football was making its
second consecutive run for a
state title, senior running back'
2ach Tronti received a letter he
was anxiously waiting for in
his mailbox.
A Rhode Island native, Tronti
had his sights set on attending
college in the Ocean State, and
the acceptance letter he
received from Providence
College was making that hap-
pen.
Little did he know that a
more prestigious college in
Providence, Brown University,
would be vying for his football
services next fall.
"I got into Providence and
saw myself there," said Tronti
Wednesday night in a phone
interview.
"I have a lot of connections
up there. But who wouldn't
want to go'to an Ivy League
school?"
Tronti and Nease teammate
Kyle Timpane visited Brown
last summer and toured the
Providence campus with Bears
defensive coordinator Mike
Kelleher, who recruits the east-
ern part of Florida.
Kelleher told both players to
keep their grades up and he
would be watching them on
tape the following season.
Tronti sent Brown a tape of
Nease's 2006 spring game and
another game tape in the fall,
but didn't get his hopes up
because college football recruit-
ing is a fickle business.
The acceptance letter from
Providence College took some
pressure off Tronti, allowing
him to concentrate on his aca-
demics as well as his football
duties.
Nease completed a perfect
10-0 regular season and went
14-1 overall,
reaching the
Class 4A state
championship
game in
Miami.
Along the
way, Tronti, a B
muscular 6-
foot, 205-
pounder,
rushed for a
team-high
1,563 yards
and 18 touch-
downs, earning
second-team
all-state hon-
ors. Zach
His single-season rushing
total ranks second all-time at
Nease, behind only Greg
Matthews, who rushed for
more than 2,000 yards in 1993.
Tronti was also Nease's
fourth-leading receiver in 2006
with 19 catches for 220 yards
and two scores.

Nease High running back Zach Tronti carries the ball against
Daytona Seabreeze last November in the state playoffs.


"He had an unbelievable sen-
ior year," said Kelleher in a
phone interview Thursday
from the Brown football office.
"He had almost 2,000 all-
purpose yards and 20-plus TDs.
He has great balance, he's
durable and he can catch the
ball. You watch him on tape
and very rarely does the first
tackler take him down."
Brown (3-7 in 2006) operates
out of a spread formation, but
the Bears like to
run the football,
according to
Kelleher, who
played at Boston
University.
The Bears,
.. who won the
Ivy League
".-;. ?/ *crown in 2005,
graduated lead-
ing rusher Akin
Oyalowo (517
S yards) and list
junior Derrick
Y Knight (216) as
their top incum-
_.on bent tailback.
ronti Ivy League
schools do not redshirt fresh-
men unless they are injured, so
Tronti will have a shot to see
some playing time right away.
"I tell all my recruits to set
their goals high," added
Kelleher, who signed a handful
of Florida players this week to
add to a Bears roster that fea-


tured nine Florida natives in
2006.
Brown wide receiver Paul
Raymond (45 receptions, 654
yards) hails from Miami and is
the Ivy League's 55-meter
indoor hurdles champion.
Junior linebacker Eric Brewer
(82 stops), the team's second
leading tackler, is from Vero
Beach. Junior defensive back
Jose Yearwood (66 stops)
played at Springstead High.
Both were All-Ivy honorable
mention last season.
Kelleher was also impressed
by Tronti's academics this
school year.
The senior carries a 4.1
grade-point average and takes
mostly honors and Advanced
Placement courses.
Attending Brown is a dream
come true for Tronti, who was
born at a Providence hospital
that overlooks the Brown cam-
pus.
"His heart was set on going
back to New England," Tronti's
mother, Susan, said Wednes-
day.
"His grandparents live about
35 minutes away."
"Having family up there is a
big plus," added Zach Tronti,
who also made an official visit
to Penn University and consid-
ered offers from Sacred Heart
University, and all three U.S.
service academies.
"It's nice to know that."

Fourth-grader tackles theatrical role


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
W while most 10 year olds were out play-
ing with their friends after school this
week, Cooper Gelb of Ponte Vedra
Beach was in rehearsals for an adult play at
Players By the Sea Community Theatre in
Jacksonville Beach.
Gelb, who attends Ocean Palms Elementary,
plays Rufus Follet, the focal character in "All
the Way Home," a drama that opens today at 8
p.m. at 106 6th.St. N., Jacksonville Beach.
Tickets are $l8 and $15 at the door.
"He's definitely been enjoying it," said Gelb's
mother, Susan, at Wednesday's rehearsal.
Cooper Gelb said he does not want to make
a career out of acting. He would rather be a
herpetologist studying snakes and frogs.


He said he enjoys the theater, "despite all the
hassles, stress and weariness that goes with it,"
and became interested in it after participating
in a three-week drama camp last summer.
The camp's director told Gelb about the part
in the play and suggested that he audition.
Although he nearly missed the children's
audition because his mom got lost on the way
to the theater, Gelb was able to audition with
the adults, which he said "was not as scary
because at least adults don't expect much from
you.
A fourth grader at Ocean Palms ,.Gelb has
acted in two school plays, but never in front of
a paying audience.

Novelist James Agee, a
Harvard-educated southerner,
died of a heart attack at age
45, on the 40th anniversary
of his father's death.
Agee was only 6 when his
father, Hugh James Agee, was
killed in a car accident in
1915 near their Knoxville,
Tenn., home.
That boyhood experience
was the inspiration for Agee's
autobiographical novel "A
Death in the Family."
The 310-page book, pub-
lished two years after Agee's
death in 1955, earned a
Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
A sorrowful account of a
man's unexpected death and
its impact on his family, the
moving novel was adapted
for the stage, .winning a
Pulitzer for drama in 1961.
At the time of his death,
Agee's novel was an unedited
manuscript with the ending
intact. It was published in its
original form in 1957, a trib-
ute to the author's writing
prowess.
Literary critic Kenneth Seib
said Agee's mastery of the
English. language "was
exceeded by none of his con-
temporaries."
Added best-selling novelist
Pat Conroy: "A Death in the
Family remains one of the
most beautifully written of
all American novels. The
opening sequence is still one
of the finest prose poems in
our language."
The novel opens with a
shared moment of "content-
ment" between a father and
son as they saunter home
from "the picture show"
sucking on Life Savers.

of Famer to rousing life.
Backed by Mark Thomas
Baczynski on fiddle and
mandolin, Russ Wever on
steel guitar, Lou Colbe on
upright bass and Dan
McMasters on lead guitar,
Petty's renditions of such
Hank Williams classics as
"Lovesick Blues," "Moanin'
the Blues," "Kaw-Liga" and
"Your Cheatin' Heart" had
the near-capacity crowd at
last Friday's show clapping
and singing along.
There was nothing fancy
about Petty's performance.
He simply let the music do
the majority of the talking.


HAL
NEWSOME
REVIEWER
Along with anecdotes about
Williams' early career -
including his tumultuous
marriage to Audrey Sheppard
- Petty's voice and Williams'
music transformed the
Alhambra to a country
honky-tonk of old.
In addition to songs by
Hank Williams, Petty and his
band also performed.num-
bers by Williams' influences,
such as The Carter Family
and Jimmie Rodgers, and
those who were in turn influ-
enced by Williams, including
Alan Jackson.
When Petty sang, it didn't
require much imagination to
pretend that Hank Williams
himself stood on the stage.
Petty's voice and eerie resem-
blance to Williams, from the
hollow eyes to the large cow-


Hiram "Hank"
King Williams

Born Sept. 17, 1923,
in Mount Olive West,
Ala.

Died Jan. 1, 1953, in
Oak Hill, W.Va.

Had 12 number 1 hits-


boy hat, transcended mere
impersonation; it was as if
Petty had somehow tapped
into the very heart and soul
of Hank Williams.
The depth of Petty's com-
mitment to bringing the
memory and music of Hank
Williams to life was high-
lighted during his moving
rendition of "I'm So
Lonesome I Could Cry."
Petty interspersed the song's
verses with the story of how
Williams, who had struggled
with dependence on alcohol
and pain killers, was found
dead by his chauffeur in the
back of his own car in the
early morning hours of Jan.
1, 1953. He was 29.
Though Hank Williams has
been dead for 54 years, Jason
Petty's "Hank and my Honky
Tonk Heroes" helps ensure
that neither the man nor his
music will fade away.


It is 1915 and Jay Follet,
36, a father of two small
children, has no idea he is
about to die the following
evening in a one-car accident
after being summoned to his
father's deathbed.
' In a strange twist of fate, it
is the, son who dies, not the
father.
"We both thought it was
his father who was at death's
door," Follet's wife, Mary,
says in the novel.
"In his strength. That's
how he was taken."
For Mary, the sudden loss
of her husband opens a new
but unwanted chapter in the
life of a young mother.
"She felt as if a prodigious
page were being silently
turned," the novel says.
"Bearing children, which
had seemed so.much, was
just so much apprentice-
ship."
In a foreboding moment
before Jay heads out on what
the novel describes as "one

Gelb: Plays focal character on stage


Cont. from B-1
being directed by a profession-
al director," he said at
Wednesday's rehearsal.
Gelb has relied on the help
of his fellow professionals to
help him through some tough,
emotional scenes.
For example, he had to work
on his voice projection for a
"rage scene" in which he con-
veys a lot of emotion.
"It's basically a whirlwind of
emotion: anger, beauty and
sadness," he; said, speaking
about a scene where he has to
deal with the death of a loved
one, his father.
The scene also requires him
to throw a temper tantrum,
which is no problem, the actor
said.
"I can throw an excellent
tantrum," Gelb said with a
smile.
"All the Way Home" was
adapted from the James Agee
novel "A Death in the Family."
The play first appeared on
Broadway in 1960 and starred
Lillian Gish, Arthur Hill and
Colleen Dewhurst. It won a


Pulitzer Prize for Drama in
1961.
It was revived last November
by Off-Broadway's Transport
Group, and played at.. the
Connelly Theatre in the East
Village.
The Players production is
directed by George Ballis.
"The richness of the fabric,
the dynamic interactions and
contrasts of multiple charac-
ters offer a banquet of emo-
tion, a roller coaster ride from
laughter to sympathetic tears
for the people the audience
comes to know and care for,"
said Ballis.
"That's the stuff drama is
made of."
Ballis orchestrates the talents
of 19 actors, including Cee Cee
Hayes and Paul Rowe, who
play Gelb's stage parents.
The cast also features
Charlie White, Annette Page,

Gayle Featheringill, Roger

Hamilton, Heather Goodling,

Besides Gelb, other child
actors include Jacob Goodling,
Charlie Hafer, Lucie Roberts
and Sam Trotter.
The technical crew includes
Ryan Maloney, Anne Roberts
and Joe Schwarz, who have
created a 1915 homestead on
stage with period perfect cos-
tumes designed and executed
by Holly Gutshall.

stage manager. The plays runs
tonight and Saturday at 8 p.m.
and Sunday at 2 p.m.

es are Feb. 16-17 and 23-24. A

Spring vegetable garden workshop Feb.


T his week's column was to
have been on herbs and
vegetables, but I am
delaying those topics another
week.
However, in preparation for
a spring vegetable garden,
which can include herbs, I
recommend a Feb. 27 work-
shop, "How to Start and What
to Grow in your Spring
Vegetable Garden," which will
be held in Jacksonville.
Mary Puckett, who special-
izes in urban gardening, will '
be doing the talk from 10 a.m.
to noon at the Duval County
Extension Service office, 1010
N. McDuff Ave.
The $5 fee for the workshop
will be collected at the door,
and I expect the session will
fill up quickly, so call 387-
8850 right away.
Mary will answer questions
and may have some seedlings
of vegetables or herbs to give
away.

Mark your calendar for
Saturday, Feb. 24, at 7 a.m.,
the starting time for "The
Great Greenscape Tree
Giveaway" in Jacksonville,
when 20,000 trees, each in a
3-gallon pot, will be given
away.
Although the event is
scheduled to last until 1 p.m.,
usually the trees are all gone
well before that. The event
has become a tradition in
Jacksonville, and some folks
start lining up as early as 5:30
a.m.
Species to be given away
include red maple, river birch,
red bud, dogwood, crape myr-
tle, little gem magnolia, sweet-
bay magnolia, Japanese mag-

nolia, nuttal oak, live oak,
bald cypress and Drake elm.,
Master Gardeners will be on
hand to offer tips on the
planting and care of these
species.
The trees will vary in size,
and do not be dismayed if
some seem quite small. The
smaller the root ball is when a
tree is planted, the faster it
will become acclimated to its
new spot.
If you go, you may want to
take a wagon or something
similar for transporting your
stuff to the car.
Although we all like to have
the instant gratification of a
fully grown landscape, for
many of us this is financially
out of the question.
Frankly, too many times I
have seen landscapers plant
the picture-perfect yard for
someone, and yes, it looks
lovely. However, in two years
the yard is overgrown and the
homeowner doesn't know
how to care for it, so may
spend more money.for a care-


taker.
Instead, I recommend that
you start smaller, feeding your
plants slowly, watching them
grow and learning what their
needs are. Trust me, it will
grow like wildfire if you use
species recommended for our
area.

Here are the answers to
some questions posed to me,
the first while I was in the
extension office:
Q: I want to put sand on
my grass. I saw my neighbor
doing it and thought it looked
cool. Is this the time to do it?
A: My-answer was prefaced
by asking the caller why he
wanted to do this, and he said
he didn't know, he just
thought it probably was a
good idea since his neighbor's
yard usually looked pretty
good. Frankly, I praised him
for calling!
If there is standing water in
areas of your lawn after a hard
rain and it takes more than a
few hours to drain, chances
are we can consider those
areas to be "low."
Yes, those areas could stand
to be made level with the sur-
rounding areas by adding
builder's sand or a light top
soil.
If you have raked an area
clean that was previously
filled with weeds and is now.
bare, it is also OK to fill that
area in with sand.
You do not need to buy
expensive sand: builder's qual-
ity is fine. Topsoil also can be
used, but make sure it has
been sterilized so as not to
contain weed seeds.
It is OK to do this now or


Agee: Co-authored Oscar screenplay


Cont. from B-1
of his life," Mary remarks, "If
worse comes to worse, Jay,
you might be gone longer
than we hope."
The loss is equally hard on
young Rufus, whose coming
of age is accelerated by the
unforeseen tragedy. Rufus
was Agee's middle name.
Agee attended several
boarding schools after his
father's death, and was
accepted to Harvard, where
he graduated in 1932.
He wrote for a number of


magazines, including Time
and Forbes. An assignment to
Alabama to cover the plight
of a family of sharecroppers
led to his 1941 non-fiction
book "Let Us Now Praise
Famous Men."
Agee drifted to Hollywood
in the late 1940s, writing
screenplays and film reviews.
In 1952, he teamed with
director John Huston to co-
author the script for "The
African Queen," starring
Humphrey Bogart and
Lauren Bacall.


Agee and Houston won an
Oscar for the screenplay
adaptation. He also wrote
the script for "Night of the
Hunter" (1955).
"All the Way Home," Tad
Mosel's stage adaptation of
"A Death in the Family," was
originally produced on
Broadway in 1960.
The play, revived off
Broadway in 2006, takes its
title from the last line of
Agee's final novel: "And all
the way home they walked,
in silence."

you can wait until the grass
starts to green up. That's
when you'll see which areas
are dead, thereby making it
imperative to rake those clean
and then lay some sand.
I prefer sand to dirt only
because dirt is heavier for me
to handle. It is also heavier on
the lawn, so be careful not to
overload it or the grass will be
suffocated.
Q: My spider lilies got all
mushy from the freeze. I want
to divide them this spring. Is
it OK to do that now or
should I wait untilall danger
of frost is passed?
A: Spider lilies, crinum lilies
and any of the many other
thick, long-leafed lilies can be
divided any time. The freeze
has not hurt them for they
can outlast anything!
To be extra sure that a fui-
gus hasn't started to grow on
the'mushy stuff, however, I
suggest that you remove that
foliage and throw it away
rather than letting it rot with
the newly divided plants.
Normally I would tell you to
put it into the compost pile.
Q: I've had daffodil bulbs in
the refrigerator since October.
When should they be planted
into the ground?.
A: Now. They will probably
come up in about four weeks.
Remember that in order to
prolong the flowers of those
long-stemmed Valentine roses,
you should change their water
at least every other day, make
a fresh diagonal cut to remove
a little stem, and remove any
spotting leaves or leaves that
were in the water.
Have a great holiday and
happy gardening.

BAILEY
REVIEWER


If you haven't seen Best
Picture Oscar nominee
"Babel," you'll have a lot
more fun reading the
Internet Movie Database's
entry on the movie than you
will seeing the actual film.
A reviewer at that entry
says the movie is about our
world's lack of clear commu-
nication despite advanced
technology. Alejandro
Gonzalez Inarritu, the
movie's director, says it's
about what it means to be a

member of a modern nuclear
family.
I say it's about a
moviemaker trying to look
like he's making an artistic
statement by combining the
nauseating camera style of
"The Blair Witch Project"
with the pretentiousness of
"Traffic."
The movie revolves around
three (barely) interlocking
stories. In the first, an
American couple (Brad Pitt
and Cate Blanchett) are on a
Moroccan bus tour When the
wife is accidentally shot by a
stray bullet. The second
story concerns the owners of
the rifle that shot the bullet
-- a pair of poverty-stricken
siblings who had the poor
judgment to use the moving
tour bus for target practice.
The final story, for no
good reason, involves the
rifle's former owner -- a
Japanese widow whose
daughter uses promiscuity as
an escape from the pain
she's suffering from her
mother's suicide.

and I still couldn't tell you
why these stories are inter-
sected in a single movie. (I
was barely able to ascertain
*how* they were connected.)
I can tell you that the
movie starts out with all of
its' tagonists fairly miser-
able'~ i goes downhill from
there.
I can also tell you that the
movie includes such niceties
as a man beheading a chick-
en for the amusement of
some children, the wounded
woman getting sewn up by a
veterinarian, two sets of kids
being placed in serious peril,
and a 26-year-old actress
whose director can't think of
any better way to show her
sexuality than by having her
do full frontal nudity.
Needless to say, nobody is
done any favors by this drek.
Blanchett, one of the most
acclaimed of recent actresses,
gets little to do but lie
around and suffer. Pitt, as
always, remains a pretty
non-entity. None of the
other actors are well-known,
and sadly for them, this

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND
7:30 P.M. LAZZARA PERFORMANCE HALL TICKETS: S37/$27

e OIn 1981, a small crew of lalenied musicians led by
S9 guitar virtuoso Robben Ford dedicated themselves to
i pushing the boundorres of jazz with a deceptively
irlense, dislindive sound Ihat incorporated elements
ol bebop funk R.B and rock They called themselves
the Yellowjackels, and the buzz was instanlaneous.
That was 25 years ago, and a few of the names and
faces have changed since then. What remains is a
powerhouse quartet including original members
Russell Ferrante on keyboards and Jimmy Hoslip on
bass- still fiercely dedicated to that original vision of
improvisational jazz that draws from a vast range of
musical sources and yet defies categories. For this
special engagement the Yellowiackets will be joined by
saxophonist Fric Marienthal
UNF's award-winning Jazz Ensemble I will also perform.

Best date ever...


Numerous residents submitted entries in The Leader's
Best Date contest. Below is the winner. Additional entries
will be published in The Leader on Valentine's Day


Forty-two years ago, I met a man that I drew two years before our
meeting. At the time I drew his picture, I was just daydreaming of
someone I thought I would like to meet.
At the USO one night, a tall blond sailor asked me to dance. I was
there with some friends and really didn't want to be there. My dream
person was to meet someone else but changed his mind at the last
minute and wandered into the USO (in Philadelphia). He said he saw
me from across the room, asked me to dance and we've been dancing
together ever since.
We married the following April 1966, We met February 16, 1965 and
still celebrate Valentine's Day 2 days later. By the way, he was aston-
ished at the sight of the drawing, a tall, blond sailor who looked just like
him!

British Colonial creates take-me-away decor


Go almost anywhere in
the world and you'll
find evidence of British
influence, especially in exotic
locales such as Kathmandu,
South Africa, Kuala Lumpur
and Hong Kong.
The look in private bars and
games rooms with their
botanical prints, dark
mahogany and teak furniture,
lush palms in the corner of
the room, and old maps
speaks to the unique British
Colonial decorating style.
Although it's not as com-
mon as French Provencal,
English country, contempo-
rary, traditional, or the new
Tuscan, there's no doubt that
if you want to create a
dreamy, exotic, take-me-away
decor, British colonial is the
design to transport you to the
most remote ports of call and
time periods.

The British influence
During the Victorian era,
the British Empire spread
around the world.
The English took their fur-
nishings to foreign lands and
adapted their Victorian
belongings to their new
homes whether the location
was India, Africa, or the Malay
Straits.
Once there many British
had their beloved Victorian
furnishings hand-carved by
local artisans in the local
woods. They complemented
their furnishings with the
items found in the area. and
soon a design look formed out
of this adaptation to the envi-
ronment.
The furniture exudes a rus-
tic, hand-carved style rather
than being precisely finished
or highly polished. -


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST


The campaign
A design fixture in the
British Colonial style is cam-
paign furniture. This furniture
was often transported to
camps by porters. The furnish-
ings. might include desks,
chairs and small tables that
folded up ready for transport
or shipment to the next stop.
Many of these pieces also
had small niches and drawers
and occasionally, like many
Victorian pieces, contained
hidden drawers and features.

Natural
Generous usage of natural
elements such as cane, wicker,
and bamboo are also signa-
tures of the British Colonial
style.
Adding small tables in any
of these textures gives rich
interest in the room and stays
true to the style.
Artwork reflects nature and
often centers on nature itself
with botanical artwork prints
and animal skin designs for
rugs or upholstery fabric.
Burnished brass elements


contrast with the natural fab-
rics and elements. Accessories
such as a brass magnifying
glass set on old map create
the feel of planning a safari or
tiger hunt from a hundred
years ago.
Bulky wooden candlesticks
with rustic candles create a
romantic feel.
Large plants, especially
palms, were Victorian design
fixtures and give the room a
touch of the jungle when
combined with mosquito net-
ting over a bed.

Lighting
Rooms were generally kept
dark to keep them cool in the
warmer climates.
Dark-stained wood planta-
tion shutters or blinds and
bamboo shades are good
choices for window coverings.
Fussy, frilly curtains were out
and so were exotic prints.
Instead, simple fabric panels
on dark-stained rods paired
with a roll shade are good
choices and help maintain the
exotic ambiance.
Stained glass lamps are good
choices as are any lamps with
brass accents and colored glass
shades.
British Colonial style can
range, showing influences of
Chinese design and elements
to Victorian style with African
art and influences.
Because of the British influ-
ence in India, British Colonial
style can often include Indian
influences called Raj style, a
particular favorite of mine.
No matter the country or
the continent, British
Colonial style can adapt to a
variety of international flavors
and still be considered
authentic and true to the

style.
Select the one that appeals
to you most whether that's a
Victoria marble-topped chest
paired with a zebra-skin rug or
a writing desk topped with


Chinese vases or artwork -
because the look is striking
and exotic and will take you
to another place and time no
matter which locale you
select.

Timely Tips


by KATE WORTH
CLEAN LIGHT FIXTURES -
To clean lampshades made of
paper, fabricor fine silks, use a
lamb's-wool duster instead of a
rag. For deeply embellished
shades, use the brush attach-
ment of your vacuum cleaner.
Clean glass shades by dipping
them in a plastic tub filled
with soapy water. Rinse .thor-
oughly and drain on puppy
training pads, which are plas-
tic on one side and absorbent
material on the other. To clean
a glass chandelier, you will
need goggles, a lamb's-wool
duster, a spray bottle of 50/50.
solution of water and vinegar


and an umbrella. Dust first.
Then hang the umbrella under
the, chandelier, hooking the
handle over an arm of the light
fixture. Spray the crystals with
the vinegar solution until they
drip. The umbrella will catch
all the dirty water. Cheryl F.

MOISTURE BEATER To pre-
vent musty closets, keep a low-
wattage light bulb on in the
closet. Another option is to try
putting activated charcoal in a
sock and tie it around the
hanging rack in 'the closet.
This will absorb moisture,
smells and dampness. Carrie L.
CLEAN SIL FLOWERS -
CLEANING SILK FLOWERS -


Dust silk flowers by placing
them in a laundry bag with a
fabric softner sheet and tossing
the bag into the clothes dryer
on the no-heat cycle. Liz D.

STAIN REMOVER Remove
tough stains from suede by
lightly rubbing with very fine-
grain sandpaper. Kathy W.

DRAIN SAVER. I save the
jars and lids that I get whenev-
er I purchase tomato sauce and
mayonnaise. When I have
bacon drippings or old oil
from fried foods, I pour the fat
into these jars. When the jar
gets full, I put the top back on
and put the jar in the trash.


Real fireworks on the beach


I'm not a fan of man-made
fireworks and the crowded
scenes usually involved in
viewing them. It's the natural
fireworks on the beach that I
enjoy instead the beach light
shows the other 364 nights of
the year.
Sometimes it is the changing
light of sunset that appeals to
me, with skimmers and terns
clustered together, their red or
orange beaks reflected in the
dying day. Walking along the
beach at sunset, the shadows
are longer, the bright spots
brighter and the reflected light
from the ocean gives the world
a rosy glow. And at dawn, the
sun rising above the ocean
rivals nothing else on Earth.
Sometimes in full dark, the
moon rises over the ocean and
its own reflection on the waves
and surf provides a natural
light show that beats the famed
sunsets at Key West any day..
Fullmoon nights are a special
treat, and a show that draws
many of us out to the beach to
see them. Or, if you.want to see
large expanses of sky and stars,
just walk the beach on a moon-
less night. Orion is sometimes
clearly positioned, and I usually-
can find the Big Dipper and
sometimes Cassiopia on a dark
night. Shooting stars are often
visible for one with the
patience to sit on a beach blan-
ket relaxing at night. On special
meteor shower nights, like the
Perseid showers in late summer,
a nighttime beachgoer might
be able to see dozens of "falling
stars" in minutes. Talk about
fireworks!
On a quieter note, have you
ever seen the phosphorescence
in the water at night? Well, I
have, especially where chumed-
water stirs the microscopic
glowing organisms to light.
Like fireflies of the sea, these
shining bits of life are a wonder


Pat Turley-Foster
COLUMNIST


to behold for those who care to
look.
At night, walking the beach,
there is a sense of mystery and
awe. What is that dark shape
up ahead? Is it a beached
whale? Is it a female sea turtle
lumbering ashore to ditch its
supply of'eggs in the sand?
Maybe it's a tourist family from
the Midwest, who has trekked
to our shores to spend time
near the ocean. Or is it just two
local human beachgoers having
their own fireworks show in
true "Under the Boardwalk"
fashion a natural phenomena
like any other on the beaches
of the world on starry nights.
But forget the Fourth of July


fireworks there are just too
many people out and about for
me to enjoy it.
If new Nassau County recre-
ation ordinances are modified
to close all county beach park-
ing lots from sunset to sunup,
this will be the only beach light
show Nassau County residents
will be able to see. There is a
clause in place to open the
Nassau County beaches after
sunset only on the Fourth of
July, and just until 10 p.m. to
let the public watch the 9 p.m.
fireworks. The other 364 nights
of natural light shows and
beach natural night phenome-
na the whales, the turtles, the
hunkered skimmers, the scut-
tling ghost crabs will all be
taken from Nassau County resi-
dents who do not live in beach-
front homes or developments.
I just want all to be able to
enjoy the beach 24/7 to see the
real fireworks all along beauti-
ful beaches every night of the
year.
(The public parking lots near
the beaches at Ponte Vedra
Beach, Jacksonville Beach,
Neptune Beach and Atlantic
Beach are open 24/7.)

Your Horoscope


by CHARLES COOPER
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could be
asked to go that extra mile this week at work.
Be sure you're able to handle the job. This is a
big test for you in the long run.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You're on quite
the roll this week at work. Everything you
touch works out magically. At home, though,
it's a different story, so be patient.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don't give in to
temptation this week where credit matters are
concerned. You could easily get in over your
head. In relationships, remember that compro-
mise is always best.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You're going to
have to resist the urge to give advice this week.
Yes, it would be on the mark. However, not
everyone will appreciate your words of wis-
dom.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Exercise restraint
this week when dealing with those in authori-
ty at work. You could say something flippantly
that would be misinterpreted. Later in the
week, romance is favored.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friend
who normally agrees with you won't this week.
Don't let that throw you. By week's end, you're
happily on the same page again.
LIBRA (Septemhb 23 td Oef6ber 22) It's a'
good week to tie up some loose ends at work.
You've been procrastinating over certain things


for too long. Bigwigs are watching.
SSCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Ease
up a bit this week on colleagues. You get more
done if you stop pushing your weight around.
Others will be more inclined to cooperate.
SAGITTARIUS (Novernber 22 to December
21) Guard against impatience this week. You'll
also have an unfortunate tendency to fly off
the handle. Get to the heart of what's bugging
you to get back on a more even keel.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
You'll feel very harried and rushed this week.
Calm down and prioritize. Even if you don't
accomplish everything, you'll hnd \Nou 've done
enough by the end of the week to keep you
sane.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You
make a poor impression on friends and warmly
this week. For some reason, they find you over-
bearing right now. Back down a bit and soften
your approach.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You dig in
your heels this week and insist things go your
way. Frankly, that's not very attractive. Tact
and diplomacy will serve you better.
CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS: Christina Ricci,
February 12; Jerry Springer, February 13;
Florence Henderson, February 14; Jane
Seymour, Eebruary,15; LeVar Burton. February
16; Michael Jordan, February 17, Cybiil
Shepherd, February 18.

tion.
