Run 4 Mikey at Mickler's Feb. 24


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
"I'm running for Mikey," stu-
dents at Ocean Palms Elementary
-School said Monday in anticipa-
tion of the Run 4 the Kids at
Mickler's Landing Feb. 24.
Students, family, friends and
anyone who-would like to partici-
pate in the 5K run/walk and the
kids fun run (under a mile) will be
raising money for Michael
Williams, a 10-year-old fourth
grader who was diagnosed with
anaplastic large cell lymphoma in
August.
"We want to help the family
financially so they can focus on


getting him well again," said race
coordinator Tracy Williams, a for-
mer teacher at Ocean Palms.
"We also hope the community
support will help him heal and
know he's not alone.:"
Run 4 the Kids originated three
years ago when Amy Schottel, a
fifth grade teacher at Ocean
Palms, wanted to help former a
student, Katie Davis, who had a
brain tumor removed. The race
raised about $2,000 that first year.
Schottel decided to continue the
race to help with the financial
burden placed on a family when
their child is diagnosed with a life-
threatening illness. She hopes to
raise even more money this year


now that Run 4 the Kids is an ol'i-
cial nonprofit charitable organiza-
tion. All donations are tax
deductible.
"If we can help financially that
will create less stress on the fami-
ly," Schottel said.
SMichael's parents, Mike and
Patty Williams, are coptracttuAl'

noticed a growth on his neck and

with lymphoma.

Jewish needs assessed


By KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
The Jewish community at the Beaches is
the fastest-growing in the Jacksonville area,
and a Ponte Vedra Beach resident heads a
committee trying to determine the needs
of that community.
A series of town hall meetings that begin
Feb. 27 in South Jacksonville Beach will
help determine what services are needed
and what resources area available, Harold
Resnick said in an interview last week.
Resnick of Ponte Vedra Beach is chair-
man of the outreach committee organizing
the town hall meetings. Other meetings are
scheduled March 6 and March 13.
The committee was formed by the
Jacksonville Jewish Federation after a study
done by the federation indicated that the
Jewish population at the Beaches is the
fastest growing and makes up 20 percent of
the Jewish population in the Jacksonville
area.
The committee hopes "to explore and
determine the interests, concerns, and
needs of Jewish residents of the greater
Beaches area," according to a press release
from the Jacksonville Jewish Federation.
The Jacksonville Jewish Federation is an
umbrella organization that raises funds
and provides educational, cultural, and
social services, said Meredith Dragon, assis-
tant director of the federation.
Dragon said that about 1,200 families at
the Beaches have been identified as Jewish.
Bringing the entire Jewish community
together at town hall meetings will make it
possible to find ways to address needs in a
collaborative way, Resnick said.
"It's a very exciting time for this to be
occurring," he said. "This creates an oppor-
tunity for creative solutions."
Data from the federation's study indicate
that the Jewish families at the Beaches
include a large number of young families

There are two organized Jewish congrega-

They are Beth El the Beaches Synagogue

Sidewalk gets


MSD contract

by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
The cost for a sidewalk along Ponte Vedra
Boulevard may drop considerably now that a
trustee for the Ponte Vedra Municipal Service
District (MSD) found a "loophole" in federal
guidelines.
Curtis Long, who was elected to the board
in November and who has a background in
construction, said Monday he researched the
Americans with Disabilities Act, which
requires sidewalks to have no more than a 2
percent downward slope.
But Long said the standards do not apply
to retrofitted sidewalk projects as this one
'would be.
If required, ADA standards would require
the repaving of most of the driveways where
the sidewalk is to be built the 900 block of
the boulevard, bumping up costs from
$21,000 to $35,000.
"You can take that [issue] up with the
county it's your money," Long said:to
Djna Current, a boulevard resident heading
up the project.
About two dozen residents in the 900
block contributed a total of about $18,000,
about half the projected cost.

Car thefts drop

by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
Lt. Tommy Aman, a St. Johns County
Sheriff's officer assigned to the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District (MSD), had some
good and not-so-good news for MSD trustees
at their Monday night meeting. ., .!:
The good news: car thefts in Ponte Vedra
appear to be declining.
Two car thefts were reported this month -
one on Feb. 5 and another on Feb. 10 -
compared with four car thefts reported from
Dec. 1 to Tan. 22, according to.police reports.
The bad news is no arrests have been
'. made. 6-1 -_
u'" Bt :Tihan said the Sheriff's Office has iden-
tified some suspects, whom he would not
identify because deputies are still investigat-
Sing.
Of the recent car thefts, one was within the
MSD on Ponte Vedra Court and one was out-
side the MSD in the Marsh Cove area.

Riots in streets?

Blame opposite sex

Today is Valentine's Day, when couples
everywhere celebrate the one-on-one bond
they share.
But what happens if there aren't enough
women or men to go around' That
ratio of one gender to another is a powerful,
though seldom acknowledged, social force,
according to University of North Florida
history professor David Courtwright.
When gender ratios are imbalanced -
and there are many causes for such imbal-
ance there are consequences, he says.
Too many men, for example, breeds vio-
lence and disorder, and too many women
breeds illegitimacy and divorce, which can
increase violence and disorder.
Courtwright will explain such phenome-
na at noon today in Room 1604-5 of
SRobinson Center (Building 14) on the UNF
campus. The public is invited, no matter
what gender.
Courtwright says he did not deliberately
select Valentine's Day for his talk, adding,
"but I was not oblivious to the irony."


Count your chickens and other birds


Commissioner 'hams' it up at meetings


If you happen to switch
to the St. Johns County
government channel and
hear someone talking
about ham, don't adjust
your television set the
Food Network is not seep-
ing through.
It's just Commissioner
Tom Manuel telling his
"ham story," which he
recounts at practically
every County Commission
meeting.
It's a story about how his
family, for gener-
ations, has always
cut a ham right
down the middle
and cooked one '
half while throw-
ing the other half
away.
Manuel goes
through a drawn
out explanation
about how each
generation did
this because their
mother did it.
Then, just as
the other com-
missioners have
started to doze
off, he reaches
the punch line.
He explains
that he asked the
eldest member of
his 'family why


she cut the ham in half,
and she said it was because
her pan wasn't big enough.
His point? That St. Johns
County should examine
the reasoning behind some
of its policies instead of
doing what has always
been done.
Cute story.
But in light of the
commissioners'
recent efforts to short-
en their meetings, it
might help if, in o


the future, Manuel cut his
ham story in half, or cut it
out altogether.


The tenth annual Great Backyard Bird Count
is coming up Feb. 16 throughl9, and Florida
bird watchers have a chance to help make his-
tory simply by participating.
The event, led by the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology and the National Audubon Society,
spans the United States and Canada and allows
scientists to learn the latest trends in bird popu-
lation and distribution across North America.
You simply count the number of each bird
species you spot during an outing or even sit-
ting in your backyard, then enter the tally into
your individual checklist created at www.bird-
source.org/gbbc.
This year's goal is to top the all-time partici-
pation record for the event: 61,049 checklists.
Last year, participants came within a few hun-


dred of the record. This is how Florida fared:
Number of species: 259
Number of checklists submitted: 2,263
Species reported on the most lists: Northern
Cardinal
Species reported in the greatest numbers:
American Coot
Locality submitting the most lists:
Tallahassee
State record for checklist submitted: 2,263
(2006)
For those of you who are bird watching
novices, you might want to pick up a bird
watching book with all the pictures and names
of each species. The scientists get grumpy if you
confuse mocking birds and blue jays.


Hey Mommy, what's a 'hoohaa?'


A marquee at an Atlantic
Beach theater drew some
unwanted attention when it
posted the name of an upcom-
ing play, which includes a term
for female genitalia.
The Vagina Monologues will
be presented Feb. 15 to 19 by
the Florida Coastal School of
Law. Proceeds are to benefit
breast cancer research.


The Obie Award-winning
episodic play has been staged
internationally, and a televi-
sion version featuring Eve
Ensler, the writer, was pro-
duced by HBO.
To appease the squeamish -
and those unwilling to explain
the term to young children -
the theater decided to change
the marquee to read, "The


Hoohaa Monologues."
A message posted last week
on the theater's web site
(www.atlantictheatres.com)
apologized for the theater's use
of the proper medical termi-
nology and welcomed sugges-
tions of an alternative term.
"It is not the intention of the
Atlantic Theatres to offend
anybody by hosting this event
and we formally apologize to
anyone that was upset when
we advertised this on our mar-
quee during the first week of
February. We have since made
changes to reflect the sensitive
nature of this show's title. If
the new title on the marquee is
still appalling, please call with
suggestions. Ask for Bryce."
Several residents called, but
it was to complain about the
new, "sensitive" title so the
theater changed it back.
Tickets are $10. Call 249-
PLAY for information ... or to
ask what a "hoohaa" is.


Blame it on the clocks...


Just blame it on the clocks
at Jacksonville City Hall... or
perhaps mayoral tradition.
Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton arrived at 12:50 p.m.
for a 12:30 p.m. speaking
engagement before the
Beaches Business Association
two weeks ago. His presenta-


tion was delayed a few
moments longer while his
honor grabbed a really quick
lunch.
His late arrival was reminis-
cent of former mayor Tommy
Hazouri, whose aides quipped
that he was on Tommy time
when he ran a little or a


lot late for engagements.
In Peyton's defense, the
road work on south Penman
Road can make a formidable
challenge to get to the
Jacksonville Beach golf course
clubhouse, where the BBA
meets Monday at noon.

Anyone who plans to attend can
RSVP by calling 448-5000, ext. 209, or
by e-mail at traceyf@jewishjack-
sonville.org.


The town hall meetings will open
with a short presentation followed by
informal discussion.
Those who attend will be invited to
meet in small groups with committee
members to share ideas, said Resnick.
"We hope to learn what they want
moving forward."
Then the committee and the federa-
tion will look at community resources
and ways to provide programs and serv-
ices, he said.


Town hall meetings organized by the Jacksonville Jewish Federation are scheduled as follows:
* Feb. 27 at the Hampton Inn on Marsh Landing Parkway in Jacksonville Beach off Butler Boulevard; 280-9101.

MSD: ADA requirements in question


Continued from A-1
The county has agreed to pay almost $13,000
- or 36 percent which would cover most of
the cost for repaving the driveways, Current
said.
The MSD will pay just under $5,000, or 14
percent of the total cost.
MSD trustees voted Monday night to approve
the contract for the sidewalk and a local agree-
ment with St. Johns County for the cost sharing.
Only Trustee Bob Reesh voted against the
agreement, which he later said was because MSD,
trustees didn't receive the contract or local
agreement until the meeting and many ques-
tions about both were unanswered.

"I have no problem with the sidewalk," but it
was the wrong time to vote on the contract,
Reesh said Tuesday.
County Engineer Pres Tompkins said Tuesday
that he is not aware of a loophole in the
Americans with Disabilities Act for retrofit proj-
ects.
The only exemption he knows about is one
for historic buildings, he said.
But, he said, county standards may still
require the driveways to be less than a 2 percent
slope.
Current said he hopes construction of the
sidewalk will get started by Feb. 26.

The Leader's Opinion


Valentine's Day is


worth celebrating

A columnist in a recent edition of The Northeaster, the
school newspaper written by Fletcher High School stu-
dents, noted that one is the loneliest number and lob-
bied for an anti-Valentine Day. Failing that, the student
suggested a new spectator sport watching guys at card
counters flail while finding "the" card.
Perhaps Valentine's Day does promote a certain angst
in some, but the public (and private) displays of affec-
tion encouraged on Valentine's Day are certainly some of
the brighter spots of winter.
Getting or giving a card or a bit of chocolate are
charming traditions and relatively affordable so enjoy -
especially since new health news indicates that moderate
amounts of chocolate can be good for the heart. (Now
that's called good news).
Despite the holiday falling midweek, area restaurants
are still expected to be busy as are florists, jewelers and
candymakers. Of course, all of that is also good for the
economy. Obviously there is little mass support for an
anti-Valentine's Day.
Whatever you choose to do today, have a happy
Valentine's Day.

Roundabouts a poor

choice for Penman


To the editor:
Three cheers for Dana
Pardee's letter to the editor! It
punches holes in the florid
*and oneiric talk about the
renovation of Penman Road.
I:Also worth mentioning is
the recurring interest in
roundabouts among the
Beaches' officials.
Maybe it's the exotic quali-


ty of roundabouts which
interests them; roundabouts
are in use in England and
elsewhere in Europe.
However, they are no better
than a five-way stop.
Does anyone like a five-way
stop?

In 1964, when The Beatles'

the most popular band on
Earth, Dino knocked "Hard

He did so with "Everybody

all age groups:

Everybody loves somebody

Something in your kiss just

Whereas many of today's hit
songs celebrate fear, anger and
cynicism, Dino's songs celebrate
sweetness and innocence. His
songs are idealistic and uplift-

Penman improvement


To the editor:
I would like to respond to the residents' nega-
tive statements regarding the Penman Road
Improvements Study:
1.) The consultants hired to conduct the study
are experts in transportation planning and engi-
neering and have experience all over the U.S. and
Canada producing similar studies. Their presenta-
tion offered cutting edge solutions and "outside
of the box" thinking. They provided facts and
information and they made recommendations
according to those facts.
2.) This study is just that....a collective vision
considering possible solutions, physical improve-
ments, and aesthetic enhancements. There are
many things that have to occur first for this pro-
posal to even become reality. The recommenda-
tions are based on concepts that have been
proven to increase safety, decrease speeds, and
foster a multi-modal environment facilitating the
equitable movement of drivers, pedestrians, and
bicyclists. The plan will result in improved access
to businesses, more parking and a reduction in
stop and go through movements, especially dur-
ing AM and PM peak hours. Who would not
want that?
3.) The consultants propose decreasing the
speed from 35 mph to 30 mph. If decreasing your
speed by 5 mph for a grand total of less than 2.5
miles from Beach to Atlantic is an inconvenience
for you, then that is a shame. How much of a
hurry ate you in? Should your speed and desire to
get wherever be at the expense of pedestrians and
children? The functionality and efficiency of the
roadway should not be measured in terms of how
fast you can get from point A to point B.
Additionally, the consultants hired by the City
determined that decreasing the speed by 5 mph
will not negatively impact the capacity of the
road. This again is based on facts, and not opin-
ion.
4.) Why rely on the extra cost in time and


money associate

Land use grant change

vital to Selva CC's future


nity to sell the land and raise the funds, the
future of the Club in this very competitive golf
course/country, club marketplace is highly ques-
tionable. Those residents of Selva Linkside who
may be concerned about the possibility of 100
new homes and a partial golf course view should
instead by concerned with the possibility of
500+ homes and no view at all.
I ask that the Mayor and City Commissioners
of Atlantic Beach please grant the land use
change so that Selva can ensure golf remains a
staple in our neck of the beach for years to
come. As such, overdevelopment will be curbed
for the next half century and we can maintain
the quaint, unique environment that makes
Atlantic Beach the special place that it is.
Kirsten & Barry Sabia
Atlantic Beach


All want to preserve the character of the city


Selva Marina is doing what is


necessary to keep club going


To the editor:
I am an Atlantic Beach resident, a sharehold-
er and a member at Selva Marina Country
Club.
I read the article regarding the concerns that
the Selva Linkside residents have with the land
sale and capital improvements planned for
Selva Marina Country Club and wanted to
share my opinion on that topic and to tell you
that I support the club's plan for redevelop-
ment.
Specifically, the two Selva Linkside concerns
that I remember from the article are the loss of
their golf course view and the charge that this
would cause in the character of Atlantic
Beach/managing growth.
Selva Marina Country Club promotes the
friendly and community-minded character of
Atlantic Beach. One of the things I love about
being a member of this club is that it has
enhanced what was already a great existence
for me in Atlantic Beach. I have met so many
great friends there, young and old. Almost all
of them are residents of AB. I run into them
walking on the beach, dining-at the corner, rid-
ing my bike, and of course atthe cluib.:I tnhirk-m
it enhances the fabric and fellowship of our


community because it provides a place to meet
and mingle with other residents you might not
get the chance to know. Additionally, having a
great recreational facility tucked into this resi-
dential community is yet another reason why
everybody wants to live in Atlantic Beach.
I know that stemming growth in Atlantic
Beach was a major topic of conversation during
the last city election. And, I too am concerned
that we preserve the character that we all love
about this city. But because our club is failing
fiscally, if SMCC doesn't take this step to pre-
serve our club and make it more modern to
attract a more thriving membership, the club
will be defunct at some point in the very near
future. At that time, I imagine it would be sold
and there would be no guarantees as to what
would happen to the 160+ acres. No share-
holder and no club member want this to hap-
pen. We want it to remain a recreational club
that Atlantic Beach residents are proud of.
Selling this small portion of our property is not
a move towards overdevelopment, but rather
maintaining the community that we love.
Thank you.for your consideration.

Patton's tiny dancer dies of leukemia




Mother's online journal tracks daughter's eight-month ordeal


In February of last year,
Carson Patton, a third grader at
Alimacani Elementary School,
was diagnosed with MDS, a pre-
cursor to leukemia. She under-
went a bone marrow transplant
last October, but relapsed in
January. She died last Thursday
at the age of 10.
Her mother, Mary Beth Patton,
a Nease High graduate, kept an
online journal of her daughter's
eight-month stay at Wolfson
Children's Hospital.
What follows include excerpts
from the journal posted at the
caringbridge.org website.

by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
arson Patton was a
typical 10-year-old
girl who loved
dancing, watching
the top-rated TV
show "American Idol" and
playing "punch buggy 1-2-3"
with her two younger siblings.
A dancer since the age of 3,
Carson was partial to hip hop
music and enjoyed breaking
down in the "center circle" at
Nancy Dance Studio in
Jacksonville Beach.
Nicknamed "Chatty Cathy,"
she had a taste for pizza, Fruity
Pebbles cereal and Hot Pockets.
She rode a Jet Ski at full thrOt-
tle in the Intracoastal
Waterway, and had a blue and
orange crush on University of
Florida quarterback Tim
Tebow.
But Carson was older and
wiser than her years and as
strong and courageous as a big-
time college QB.
When she was diagnosed
last summer with the worse
form of leukemia, the tiny
dancer took on the heart of a
lion. She died bravely in the
arms of her parents, leaving a
legacy of strength for others to

This is her story, with her
mother's comments in italics.

Saturday, Sept. 2, 2006:
It's Labor Day weekend, and
Carson has just been released
frm.,, hei ,hQospitai ig, time to
watch the Gators home open-
er. Teri Tumbelson, who works
at Wolfson's, paints Carson's
nails Gator blue.
"Today has been the longest
day of our lives and we know
there is more to come. Carson's
bone marrow aspiration revealed
that the Leukemia has progressed
unfazed by two rounds of chemo.
This is very grim news."
Tuesday Sept. 5: Carson
develops a fever and is admit-
ted to the Pediatric Intensive
Care Unit at Wolfson's. Her
bone marrow results reveal she
has 50 percent leukemic cells
in her marrow. Those "bad"
cells must be in remission
before a transplant is sched-
uled.
"Last night, Carson was sitting
up and out of nowhere she said,
'Mom, I'm going to make it
through this. I'm going to beat
this next round.' "
Saturday, Sept. 9: Before
being transferred to the fifth
floor, where all oncology
patients reside, Carson eats
three slices of Al's Pizza, her
favorite.
"All I can think about is
dance," she tells her mother.
"Mama, if I wasn't hooked up to
these IVs, I would get up and
dance right here."
Monday, Sept. 18: The day
before, Carson eats to her
heart's content: Two steak bis-
cuits for breakfast, a chicken
queso for lunch and spaghetti
and meatballs for dinner. She
works it off with an impromp-
tu 45-minute dance session.
"This is the first time she has
broke down and danced up here
in her room. Today is probably
the BEST day she has had up
here. She is all smiles and gig-
gles."
Thursday, Sept. 28: Carson's
10th birthday. Twelve hours of
non-stop celebration high-
lighted .by a big surprise: 40
people registered in the "Light
the Night" walk sing 'Happy
Birthday' to her from the roof
of the hospital's parking garage
as she stands at a window.
"When Carson turned to me
(with.her mask on) and her eyes
were lit up and twinkling, well it
was just amazing."
Carson is so exhausted she
turns in by 8 p.m. A first.
Wednesday, Oct. 11: Seven


days and counting to Carson's
bone marrow transplant. Bob
Tebow, Tim's father, brings
Carson a football signed by her
favorite QB.
Carson's mother learns that

more than 90 people wore
"Caring for Carson" T-shirts in
the Sept. 28 "Light the Night"
walk. On Saturday, Oct. 7, a
golf outing is held in Carson's
honor at Jacksonville Beach
Golf Club.
Wednesday, Oct. 18:
Transplant day. Carson wolfs
down two bowls of Fruity
Pebbles.
"We sang 'Happy Birthday' to
her during the infusion. As of
today, she will have a new
DNA!"
Thursday, Oct. 19: Carson's
DNA isn't the only thing that
,has changedd, since the ..rans-
plant. She ajso,has a. ne,I blood
type: A positive.
"Since the blood type is more
rare, there is a shortage. She will
need a minimum of two dona-
tions [of platelets] per week."
Friday, Oct. 20: Two days
earlier, Carson was told she
would have a "mystery visitor"
today. It is her hero, Tim
Tebow, who dons a mask and a
gown to visit her in the bone
marrow transplant unit.
"This absolutely made her day
(week). We got a few pictures of
them together and she is now just
chatting away about going to the
Gator games next year. We will
be taking her, that's for sure."
Thursday, Nov. 9: Bump in
the road. Carson has been in
the bone marrow unit for
almost four weeks and was
expecting to go home today.
But her electrolytes are way
off. She has a seizure.
"She doesn't have any recollec-
tion of what happened. (Lucky
her.) The seizure was very intense
and lasted for several moments. I
was sure that she had bought her-
self a ticket to the PICU. She had
a CT scan of her brain and all
came back normal, thankfully."
Wednesday, Nov. 15: Day
28 after transplant. Carson
leaves the PICU and its isola-
tion settings for her cozy fifth
floor digs. Her mother pauses
to reflect on children less for-
tunate.
"I am so used to seeing her like
this and when I go past other
glass windows down here, my
heart goes out to the many chil-
dren that are in those rooms."
Wednesday, Nov. 15:
Carson wants to go home and


begins shutting out everyone,
even her mother.
"We are praying that the
results to the biopsy show that
the transplant was a success. I
am anxious about it all."
Tuesday, Nov. 21: Two days
before Thanksgiving, Carson
finally goes home to her West
Beaches neighborhood near
Alimacani. She'll.be on an IV
drip. Carson's mother knows it
will be a Thanksgiving to
remember.
"It will be the most thankfid
day we will ever have. All I want
for Christmas is for my family to
Ibe afe. at home'I aln ,together.'"
Friday. Nov. 24: On the
drtie home from the hospital
on Tuesday, Carson smiled the
whole way. On turkey day, she
stepped outside wearing her
mask and clutching her IV
pole.
"Robbie and I were standing in
the doorway watching like we
had just sent our first child off to
kindergarten!"
Wednesday, Nov. 29: Nancy
Dance and "Designs from the
Heart" combine to give Carson
a new bedroom makeover.
There are more than 18,000
visitors to Carson's caring-
bridge.org web page.
Thursday, Dec. 7: Pearl
Harbor Day. Carson is readmit-
ted to Wolfson's after being
tested for a virus that has made
her stomach upset. Her spirits
are OK, but she is not speaking
much. Her dream is to attend
the "American Idol" finale in
May.
Friday, Dec. 15: Carson
leaves Wolfson for the holi-
days, but it's not an easy dis-
charge. A doctor likens
Carson's discharge to a space
shuttle launch. There are
many delays.
"Carson is doing well. I think
even better than when she was
discharged from the bone marrow
unit. We are really looking for-
ward to the holidays together."
Sunday, Dec. 24: Mary Beth
gets her Christmas wish: Her
whole family is home for the
holidays. The online journal
has taken on a life of its own.
"Some of you have told me that
this site has become part of your
daily routine and that just makes
me smile. Carson is still a little


stand offish. Her list for Santa
only had five or six things on it.
She is not very excited about
wearing her mask all the time.
"I asked Dr. Joyce when she is
considered to be in remission and
he answered, 'Considering where
Carson's disease was (50 percent
leukemic cells at the time of
transplant), she is in remission
now.' This means that we all got
the miracle we were praying for."
Saturday, Dec. 30: Carson
checks into the ER with severe
stomach pains the night
before. A CT scan reveals a
hematoma in her intestine. A
tube.wyill be inserted dowrih. e
throatand intoiher st9machtor,,
drain fluid being blocked by
the hematoma.
"She is communicating by writ-
ing and some talking and the
main thing that she is question-
ing is whether or not she will be
home in time for the [BCS] cham-
pionship game [between the
Gators and Ohio State]. Go fig-
ure. "
Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007: A
call goes out for more platelet
donors for Carson. She is using
up to two infusions a day, as
opposed to one or two per
week. She will need two units
of platelets a day for the next
three weeks.
Saturday, Jan. 6: Good
news. The tube is removed
from Carson's throat, but a
new bag of issues surfaces.
"What a rollercoaster she is
on."
Monday; Jan. 8: Game day
for the Gators, but not for
Carson. She can't go home due
to a severe stomach ache. Her
parents watch the game in her
hospital room.
"She was resting comfortably
through the entire game.
Hopefully, when I check back, it
will be from home."
Thursday, Jan. 11: Carson
goes home the day before. She
even hangs out with neighbors
in her cul-de-sac. More surpris-
ing, she wants to visit the
dance studio, where little sister
Morgan is taking classes.
"This was a HUGE step. I
think being around all the
dancers reminded her of how
much she enjoys dancing. She
came home in great spirits. It has
been so long since we have seen


that little glint in her eyes."
Thursday, Jan. 18: Carson
goes to the dance studio to
pick out a costume for a recital
she has planned.
"When we got home, she dis-
appeared into her bedroom. Then
my friend Kristi'an was out in the
back yard and happened to look
into Carson's bedroom window
and Carson was in there getting'
down. I was so excited it took me
a while to leave the window."
Friday, Jan. 19: A fever
sends Carson back to the hos-
pital for a minimum 48-hour
stay.
Sunday, Jan. 21: Labs reveal
Carson may be producing the
"bad" cells again. A bone mar-
row biopsy is scheduled.
Tuesday, Jan. 23: Biopsy
report still not finalized. No
news is good news.
"We are going to enjoy Al's
Pizza with Aunt Amy and
'American Idol' this evening and
we are looking forward to some
good laughs. We understand, the
President's State of the Union
address will be aired during
'American Idol.' To use Carson's
own words: 'That's just great.' "
Thursday, Jan. 25: The
report is back. The news is not
good. Carson's leukemia has
returned.
"There is no more treatment.
that the doctors can offer Carson
at this time since she is still so
fresh out of her transplant. Any
treatment would be more harmful
in her fragile state."
Saturday, Jan. 27: The grim
truth is that the leukemia is
back and multiplying rapidly.
Carson's mother decides not to
sugarcoat it anymore.
"We shared many things with
her tonight. More than we have in
the past few days and she was
very angry. Afterwards she said, 'I
do not want you all to talk like
that anymore. I have another
year to live. "
Sunday, Jan. 28: Carson
requires oxygen around the
clock and is taking morphine

DORIS MANUKIAN
GUEST COLUMNIST


My prince

of a man

Valentine's Day a gold-
mine for Hallmark, florists,
chocolate makers and jew-
elers and for most recipients of
bouquets, gems, and goodies, a
confirmation of their partners'
devotion. For me, Valentine's
Day is a reminder of how blessed
I was to have met the love of my
life. I recall the day as if it were
yesterday.
'It was a cold, bone-chilling
morning in January in New York
City. I woke up late because I for-
got to set my alarm clock. I hated
to'be late. Glad that I had bathed
the night before, I threw on my
underwear, struggled with the
tob tight girdle, and frantically
searched for a pair of hose that
didn't have a run.
I grabbed the first dress I
touched in the closet, pulled it
on, went to the bathroom to
apply lipstick, then reached for a
rubber band to put my long hair
into a ponytail. Forgetting about
breakfast, I jerked my red wool
winter coat off the rack, pulled a
black French beret out of its
pocket, jammed it on my lead,
and hajdcd out the door It i\as
8:15 a.m. I was supposed to be at
my desk in my office on 31st
Street and 6th Avenue in
Manhattan at 8:30, but I knew I
wouldn't make it on time.
My apartment on West 87th
Street was tiny. There was just
one room, serving as combina-
tion living-dining-and bedroom,
a cubbyhole kitchen, and a nar-
row bathroom with an old-fash-
ioned, club-footed tub. It was
enough for me, just starting my
career in Manhattan. Yet shortly
before I moved in, my best friend
Eleanor, an American girl of
P6rtugese descent who had come
from Worcester, Mass. to work for
an airline, asked if she could
move in with me. Though we'd
be cramped, I agreed.
That January morning, as I ran
out of the Brownstone building
and raced toward the subway
entrance, I thought how lucky I
was to have such a good relation-
ship with my roommate. I also
felt fortunate that I had a job I
liked very much in one of the
wQrld's most fascinating cities.
What more would a 21-year old
gitl need?
The subway station nearest our
apartment was also located on
87th Street, right next to Central
Park, one of New York's main
attractions. As I reached the
entrance, I heard the train arrive.
I raced down the stairs as quickly
as my high-heeled pumps permit-
ted, struggled with a token to get
through the turnstile, and ran
toward the platform. Just as I got
to; the train's double doors, they
closed. Left behind on the plat-
form, I noticed a young man
inside the subway, trying to pry
open the electronically con-
trolled doors and let me come
aboard. He didn't succeed, of
course, and the train left.
.The next morning I arrived at
the station at my usual hour -
7:0 a.m. Looking around, I saw
hifm the young man who had
tried to help me. He was gor-
geous. A bit short, about my
height, but with wonderful curly,
black hair, chocolate-brown eyes,
arifl a slim but muscular body.
H; looked like a prince, I
thought. I smiled at him and
that was the only encouragement
hee needed. He slowly came to
where I stood, stopped in front of
me, rubbed his hands together
arid said: "It's cold outside."
Little did I know at that
moment that on that blustery
January morning in 1958, on a
dark and dingy New York City
subway platform, I had found my
Prince Charming.
It is now 2007 and in June we'll
be celebrating our 48th wedding
anniversary. After all these years,
he's still my Prince of a Man.
Happy Valentine's Day to my

son in one day. Although their friendship
began 50 years ago, I met Justin in 2005. FiVe
months later my dad proudly walked me down
the aisle. Why were my parents so supportive
of our short engagement? Because 34 years ago
they similarly met, eloped five months later,
and are still living happily ever after. When the

sheet with photo and directions for my "mission". I was to meet the "agent" at
the corner. If I decided to accept the mission, we would travel to a local grocery
store, obtain the elements for a Valentine's Day dinner and come back to the
dorm to enjoy the contents..
I did decide to accept the mission and met said "agent" at the corner. At the
time, Tom had a sloopy red Ford Torino and he quickly roared up to my
location when I appeared. As I got into the car, I started'to laugh as I
saw his disguise. He was wearing sunglasses, a plastic Sargent Pepper
mustache, and a deadpan expression. He said nothing. As we took
off, I saw him reach under the driver's seat and press a button.
From the tape recorder came the sounds of the Mission
Impossible Theme Song. I was more smitten than ever. We bought
the items and enjoyed a wonderful dinner together. (Yes, he did ev en-
tually become himself and start talking later in the date.

didn't want to go! Where? To the "U.S.O." "Buddies

were "hostesses" there a few nights a week. I said, "All the
guys that are there tonight will be down in the dumps
because they didn't get Christmas leave to go home."
Marilyn said, "All the more reason we should go, to cheer
them up", and so we went. On that night, long ago, I met
my Ken, and soon we'll celebrate our "50th" wedding
anniversary.

These are some entries from The Leader's best date essay contest.


e first time I saw Sam was in the college cafeteria. He was sitting
with a friend I knew from high school. From the moment our eyes met
I was interested, but never thought he'd be interested in me.
From time to time I saw Sam almost every day. He often sat with the
group I ate lunch with or we would pass outside one of my classrooms. I
was sure he liked Margo who was the kind of girl all men like
to be seen with. Margo could have done a hair commercial.
She had the perfect figure, wore miniskirts, and drove of all
things a red camaro. I on the other hand hadishort hair; an
imperfect figure, Wore Mly skirts at knee length and drive
an old buick skylark which my parents considered a safe car.
Even though I was in college I did not escape taking phys-
ical education. After careful consideration I choose Tennis
from a list of courses. It seemed like a safe game for someone like
me. -After the first few weeks I knew I was in trouble. The coach took
me aside and told me I needed some mentoring. He suggested I work with
an experienced senior student who he often played doubles with
on the weekends. In fact he said this student no doubt would
S improve my game and help me pass the course. I was desper-
ate so I agreed to meet with my mentor on Saturday morning.
. On a brisk fall morning I arrived with my racket. I had on
a neatly pressed white tennis outfit at'the knee, not above.
No sooner had I arrived on the court I noticed Sam walking
towards me. He too had racket in hand and a broad smile.
It is now 33 years later and Sam is not only my mentor, but my
best friend and yes my husband. Oh by the way I did pass my
physical education course too.

Chinese cookbook author shares New Year recipes


WEDDING


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
Sunday begins the 15-day
celebration of Chinese New
Year.
In a telephone interview,
cookbook author Ying Chang
Compestine spoke about
Asian cooking and some dish-
es with special significance for
Chinese New Year.
Compestine's cookbooks
include "Secrets from a
Healthy Asian Kitchen,"
"Cooking with Green Tea,"
and "Secrets of Fat-Free
Chinese Cooking."
She is also the author of
eight children's books and her
first novel is scheduled to be
published this year.





S-J~ COOKS


Compestine has appeared
on the Discovery Channel and
Home and Garden TV. She has
been a contributor to numer-
ous magazines such as
"Cooking Light" and "Self"
and served as the food editor
for "Body+Soul" magazine.
She has taught cooking
classes in various locations
around the world and is also a
spokesperson for the Nestle
Corp.
During the interview,
Compestine said that she tries
to develop recipes "with
authentic flavors."
Much of the Chinese food
that people are used to having
in the U.S. is not typical of
dishes from her native China,
she said.
Her recipes offer people a
way to make quick and
healthful Asian meals at
home.
For beginners to Asian cook-
ing, Compestine recommends
starting simply with one or
two recipes at a time.
Organization is important
for successful Asian cooking
which' means assembling
ingredients and taking care of.
any prep work first, she said.
To prepare meals when time
is short, Compestine said she
doesn't hesitate to use frozen
vegetables, packaged fresh ,
vegetables that have already
'been washed and prepped,
and Asian sauces and season-
ings.
Her own cooking experience
began with her grandmother
in the family kitchen in
Wuhan, China. After coming
to the United States for gradu-
ate school, Compestine
missed authentic Chinese
food.
The Chinese food that was
most often available was heav-
ily sauced and high in calo-
ries, she said, so the only way
to have authentic Chinese
food was to make it herself.
Compestine brings to her
cooking some of the regional
,variations unique to Wuhan
in central China. This is an
area where tea is grown and it
is common there to cook with
green tea. Steaming vegetables
with a couple green tea bags
added to the water adds flavor
and anti-oxidants to the veg-
etables, she said.
One of her New Year recipes
uses green tea to make Sweet
Chili-Garlic Dipping Sauce to
be served with New Year
Dumpling Delight.
Cooking for the Chinese
New Year usually involves the
whole family, she said. The
process of preparing food
together is an indication of

Delight and Colorful Festive
Rice are typical recipes for
dishes that a family might
make together. The combina-
tion of different vegetables in
each recipe represents a happy
family and siblings that get
along with each other, said
Compestine.
Longevity Noodles with
Sesame Shrimp represents the
renewed hope for a long life
as the New Year is celebrated.
Refreshing Vegetarian Spring
Rolls are served at the New
Year to look forward to the
end of the winter and the
beginning of the spring, she
said.

The following are Chinese

Boys soccer reaches state Final Four



Panthers set to take


on unbeaten Merritt


Island in semifinals


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR

Ken Kirsch raised the bar
significantly when he arrived
last fall at Nease High.
His to-do list included seven
lofty goals, capped by a region-
al championship.
Nease (22-3-1) checked off
No. 7 on Kirsch's list following
SFriday's 3-2 victory over Dade
,City Pasco at Panther Stadium.
The win advances the
Panthers to Friday's Class 4A

S"We had

season and

Splished all of

Kirsch after
Friday's final PANTHEI
home match
of the season.
"But we're

"We've com- Last y

goals Friday.
"Last year, gy is go

was a mess.
There was real-
ly no team-
work. This -
year, Ken gave .
a really good
work ethic f
which has
shown on the
field. All our energy is going in
the right direction."
Lang tapped home the even-
tual game-winner with 14:39
remaining, after a shot by
teammate Palmer Davis
clanked off the crossbar, fol-
lowing a comer kick by Joe
McKinley.
Lang also tallied the equaliz-
er with 26:50 to play in the
first half after Pasco opened
the scoring at the 29:25 mark
with a netter from senior strik-
er Ramon Rodriquez.
Nease senior Ryan Coming
broke a 1-all tie seven minutes
into the second half with a
shot past Hernandez. Myles
Wright was credited with the
assist.
Pasco's Roberto Cervantes


(26 goals) capped the scoring
for both teams with a penalty
kick after teammate Luis Ortiz
was brought down in the box
with 4:05 to play.
Pasco had trouble matching
up with Nease's overlapping
defenders and spent most of
the match chasing the fleet-
footed Panthers.
'SWe got caught out several
times and we got penetrated,"
said fourth-year Pasco head
coach Bill Grayling after the
match.
"But we got back in the

or four good
chances but
didn't put
them away.
"Nease is a
good team.
The teams that
are left are all
good."
The visiting
Pirates, who
reached the 4A
final four last
season, losing
to state runner-
up Middleburg,
had only lost
two games in
two years
coming into
the match.
Rodriquez
(35 goals) was
one of three
Pirates with
25 or more
goals this sea-
son.
Pasco's
attack was
slowed by a
injury to jun-
ior forward
Jose
Montelongo
(31 goals),
who started
up front but
wasn't a fac-
tor Friday.
Nease did-


n't need to
put a full-
time mark on Montelongo,
leaving more defenders the
opportunity to move forward
on overlaps.
"I claim that we have the best
defense in the state in 4A soc-
cer," said Kirsch, a former New
Jersey high school sweeper.
"I put the onus on them [to
stop Pasco]. They have a lot of
hot goal scorers and I was wor-
ried about their striking ability
from 25 yards out."
The Pirates, who are a com-
bined 44-3-3 over the past two
seasons, are goal-oriented, but
have question marks in the
back.
"We knew they had three
amazing players that had
scored 90 something goals, but
they were weak on defense,"

said Lang, who had no trouble
winning balls Friday night on

"We have a strong defense,
so we knew we could attack
them."
Nease's sophomore keeper,
Austin Davis, made three huge
saves in the second half,
including a foot save with 8:35
remaining.
A foot save by defender Nick
Janocko after Davis had left the
net in the 23rd minute,


demonstrated Nease's defense-
first mentality.
"If our goalie comes out, we
tell the defenders to get right
back in net," said Kirsch, who
previously coached at Lake -
Mary Prep and Deltona highs.
"He did his job. That's some-
thing I have always predicated
on my teams: being structural-
ly sound."

Tragedy avoided by emergency preparedness


Wat could have been a
tragedy was avoided
last weekend by being
properly prepared for emergen-
cies.
Capt. Tim Martin, with
friends Scott Leaptrott, Warren
Brew, Adrian Heilman, Corey
Maire and Al Maccini on Tim's
35-foot Viking the "Lit Up,"
were fast trolling 36 miles off-
shore last Saturday morning
when a fire broke out below the
deck in the engines.
They lifted the floor hatch
and were making progress with
their fire extinguishers when an
electrical fire started in another
area. At this point Scott put out
a distress call on the radio.
It was picked up by Capt.
Jimmy Williams on the "Reef
Rider." He echoed the distress
call which was picked up by
Capt. Jimmy Cissell and
Thomas Nadeau on the "Knot
So Grande," a 29-foot Hydra

sport. They had already seen
the smoke and fire and were on
their way.
Back on the "Lit Up" the
crew had now put on their life
jackets, inflated the life raft and
set off the Epirb. They then pre-
pared to leave the boat and
quickly gathered up as many
supplies as they could, especial-

ly water, and climbed into the
life raft.
As they settled in the raft
they set off a flare and moni-
tored the rescue effort with
their hand held radio. Within
10 minutes Capt. Jimmy Cissell
pulled up and took all six men
off the raft. They put the raft
up on their bow and headed
toward the jetties.
The crew was very compli-
mentary of Capt. Tim Martin.
In fact ,they said that before
they left the dock Tim had
gone over all of the safety items
they ended up having to puit
into action two hours later.
All concerned also spoke
highly of the Coast Guard
which acted promptly when
they got the Epirb signal and
met the "Knot So Grande" on
its way home. They transferred
the men to the much larger
Coast Guard cutter a few miles
from the jetties and all was
well.
Please let this be a reminder
to all of us to make certain that
all safety issues are addressed
on every trip you make.
Fish catching has been slow
except for the sea bass on the
party grounds and the
sheepshead along the rocks.
The water temperature has been
controlling the whiting fishing.
A rise of a few degrees should
make all the difference in the
world.
Capt. George Strate and his
anglers on the "Mayport
Princess" had four excellent
trips last week. A record num-
ber of big sea bass were iced
down along with triggerfish,
beeliners and an occasional
snapper and grouper they could
keep.
On Saturday, the party'
caught four nice snapper, sever-
al grouper and lots of beeliners
to go with another great catch
of sea bass.
Capt. Lowell Breeding with
friends Rust) Borthwick, Butch
Garvin and Tony Gray on the
"P.K."s Mistake" made the party
grounds trip last Saturday and
caught 80 sea bass and lots of
triggerfish.
Capt. Bob Cosby made a solo
trip to the jetties on Thursday
and caught two reds and three
sheepshead. His largest


sheepshead weighed seven
pounds.
Larry "Fishman" Finch had
to go all the way to Titusville
last Monday and Tuesday to
find a good bite of whiting. He
caught a cooler full of whiting
and several dozen pompano
each day.
On Saturday and Sunday, the
"Fishman" took a visiting
friend from Maine, Ernest Lee,
sheepshead fishing along the
rocks. They caught their limit
of sheepshead weighing up to
seven pounds each day.
01' pros David King and Mike
Morris made a single trip to the
rocks over the weekend and
using fiddlers on jigs caught 33
sheepshead weighing up to
seven pounds.
Veteran guide John Dyrssen
with Dwight Hibbard used live
shrimp around the Atlantic
Blvd. Bridge last Wednesday
and released 11 speckled trout
and a twelve pound red bass.
Last Monday Mike Tandarich,
James Gergley and Matt
Hamilton put the "Head
Hunter" in the water near St.
Augustine and worked the
creeks not far from Usina's and
caught 12 flounder, 11 trout
and eight red bass. Everything
was released except the floun-
der.
Capt. Dennis Young is back
in action on his "Sea Dancer."
Last Friday with the Eli Zoein
party he reports a catch of 60
sea bass and a 12-pound
grouper. They fished at nine-
mile.
On Sunday, Capt. Dennis had
Dwayne Schmidt and two oth-
ers as his guests. They fished
E.F. and brought up 75 sea bass.
Capt. Pat Purgason, Roy Co\,
Phil Puttbach and MNike Church
took the "Down Pat" 45 miles
offshore last Friday and caught
their limit of beeliners weighing
up to three pounds and then
came back closer to shore and
caught dozens of sea bass.
On Sunday, Capt. Pat with
his son Ty, Roy Cox, Chris
Cathy and Kelly Fish had
another great trip. They, again,
caught their limit of beeliners, a
25-pound king, a -10-pound
cobia, a 46-pound amberlack
and lots of sea bass. A great tnp.
Good Fishin'.

OPINION



Salesmanship helps in landing prized recruits


It's appropriate that
Valentine's Day comes so
close to the recruiting
engagement day. After all
coaches have been courting
high school players and their
parents for weeks.
It's no mystery why the
Florida Gators did so well in
capturing their betrothed. It's
the age-old story: Them that
has, gets.
They say Gators coach
Urban Meyer is being so suc-
cessful because of his talent at
seeing little things in certain
players that other coaches
miss. Plus, they say Urban is a
great salesman for the
University.
Maybe so, but it takes more
than just selling the kids, it
takes moulding them into col-
lege players better than the
opposition as well.
After all, Meyer's predeces-
sor, Ron Zook, was a great
salesman too. He could sell
everyone but his alumni -
and it didn't save his job.
When Florida State was rid-
ing high, Bobby Bowden
could have almost anything
the Seminoles fell in love
with. They can still recruit
well, but it's much tougher
these days. The impact of staff
changes has hurt them some,
but who really knows how
much?
The Gators have it going for
them in Meyer, who is only in
his early 40s. That beats a
coach in his early old age as
far as prospective recruits are
concerned.

Nease High School senior James Wilson, right, answers questions from the media last Wednesday during
a signing day ceremony at the school for six players who affixed their signatures to scholarship offers from
several colleges and universities. Wilson, considered a prized recruit and ranked as the nation's best offen-
sive lineman prospect by several scouting services, made official his decision to attend the University of
Florida. Last fall, before the football season began, Wilson made a verbal commitment to the University of
Southern California, but changed his mind and will again block for Gators quarterback Tim Tebow, a Nease
teammate on the 2005 Class 4A state championship squad.


Games and robots changing medicine


It is becoming more and
more common for medical
students and residents to
utilize simulators and comput-
ers to hone their skills.
High-tech models are used
that react to "treatment" by
their doctor, including respons-
es to CPR as well as simulated
medicines. If a doctor makes a
mistake in treatment, his com-
puter patient can, in fact,
"die."
It is hoped, of course, that
the doctor in training will
learn from his mistakes and
gain valuable experience with-
out ever jeopardizing a real
patient in gaining that valu-
able experience.
Models are also used to help
train surgical residents to per-
fect their skills. This includes
the use of video simulators or
games used to reproduce what
a surgeon would be doing
through a scope for such oper-
ations as laparoscopic removal
of a gall bladder or appendix or
for arthroscopy of a knee or
shoulder joint.


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


In some ways, doing scope-
type procedures is much like
playing a high-tech video
game. Your eyes focus on a
screen and your hands work
the instruments that have been
surgically inserted.
It turns out that playing
video games, in fact, can make
you a better surgeon. A recent
study out of Iowa State


University showed that physi-
cians who played video games
at least three hours a week
tend to perform procedures
nearly a third faster and with
40 percent less complications
than those who did not play
similar video games.
Dr. James Rosser Jr., the chief
of minimally invasive surgery
at Beth Israel Medical Center,
has created a surgical "Top
Gun" video game that empha-
sizes skills needed for scope-
type surgical procedures such
as hand-eye coordination, tar-
geting, agility, accuracy and
depth perception.
The next step in all of these
computer advancements is that
someday your surgery may be
robotically assisted. This is
already happening in the U.S.
as well as abroad.
For example, in Ontario,
Canada, several patients have
undergone general surgical pro-
cedures, such as removal of
internal cancers and hernia
repairs by a surgeon who con-
trols robotic arms from a
remote location some 250


miles away.
Another surgeon was bedside
to assist the lead surgeon in
placing the instruments and in
case of complications, but
there have been none
NASA has already begun test-
ing this same equipment in
order to some day be able to
perform surgery in space:

Question: Dr. Smith, just

Answer: Many people are
confused about what exactly
an athletic trainer is and just
what his or her function is.
within the sports medicine
field.
An athletic trainer is a medi-
cal professional educated in
emergency procedures, injury
assessment, treatment and

An athletic trainer cares for all
sports-related injuries, working

letes and any physically active
