PV Rotary members making a

Bruce Vorsanger, a member of the Ponte

Philippines spreading some American
Rotary love and getting very little sleep.
After spending 24 hours on a plate,
Vorsanger and a team of Rotary members
arrived last week in the Philippines to
learn more about the country, the culture
and some of the Rotary's humanitarian
projects to help its people.
In the first week of his three-week stay,
Vorsanger said in an e-mail that he's
already seen mountains of poverty in and

Vorsanger said New Manila Heights, a
part of the city the team visited at the end
of the week, was by far the poorest, mak-

a little better.

Easter date for Blues Festival may be blessing in disguise
by LIZA MITCHELL
The 17th annual George's
Music Springing the Blues
Festival falls on Easter week-
end this year.
But that's a blessing in dis-
guise, according to the event's
longtime producer Sam Veal.
"It's going to be a holiday
weekend which means there is
going to be a lot of folks in
town," said Veal Tuesday at a
press conference to unveil this
year's festival poster and

Veal said the annual three-
day festival will not interfere
with the decades-old Sunrise
Easter Service, set for 6 a.m.
April 8 at the Pavilion.
The annual sunrise service,
which dates to the early
1950s, is sponsored by the
Beaches Ministerial Alliance.
"It will have a good impact
on the sunrise service. It is
actually going to save them
money because we'll have the
infrastructure already in
place," Veal said.
"Everything will be very
Veal said the festival was
originally'planned to incorpo-
rate gospel artists into the
Sunday lineup. Instead, the
festival and the sunrise service
will remain independent of
each other, with festival
organizers supplying chairs
for the sunrise service that
normally draws worshippers
in the hundreds.
Veal said the blues music
lineup represents multiple
genres and generations.
"We believe that this year's
lineup is the strongest, most
authentic blues lineup we've
ever had," he added Tuesday.
The 2007 lineup features
Grammy-nominated artist Tab
Benoit, Michael Burks, Little
Charlie & the Nightcats and
most of the original band
members who played blues
icons Muddy Waters and
The festival will also help
preserve a piece of Beaches
history by raising funds to
benefit the Rhoda L. Martin
Cultural Museum in
"This museum was the first
house for children here in the
community," Veal said.
"A lot of hard work has
helped make it a reality to

make it a living part of the

Longtime Beaches resident
and avid surfer Melissa
Humber was also selected as a
beneficiary of this year's festi-
val. Humber suffered serious
injuries in a motorcycle acci-
dent and is now in a wheel-
Veal said funds will be
raised to purchase a wave ski
that will allow Humber to
return to the waves. The cost
is estimated around $5,000.
"She's a good friend of ours
and a great gal from the
Beaches," Veal said. "We're
going to do our part to see
how we can help her spring
the blues and get her back in
George Hines, owner of
George's Music, said it is great
to be celebrating 10 years as
the event's title sponsor.
"We are feeling very hon-
ored and privileged to be in
this long. It's such a positive
force that we would like to see
it continue to grow and pros-
per," Hines said. "I can't thank
you enough for getting me
involved 10 years ago."
Marsden also thanked Veal
for making good on his prom-
ise to develop the blues festi-
val into the city's signature

move it out of Jacksonville

promise" Marsden said. "He's

Butler said his father told him he would have
a "marginal chance" to be a successful player,
but would meet plenty of good people along the
His father said respect for those people would
benefit him in the long run.
Now, Butler's love of golf has passed through
His son the fourth Duke in the Butler fami-
ly played for Boles and then Texas A&M.
Eventually he transferred to the University .f'
Florida, where he also played golf. He works for'
a Jacksonville sports management company.
Butler said his 7-year-old daughter Sadie, who
attends Beaches Montessori school, has also
been introduced to the game.
"I think Sadie's going to be a good golfer...
but I don't want her to get started too early,"
Butler said, adding that she's also wrapped up in
school, swimming, tennis and friends.
Butler's wife, Sheila McLenaghan, is senior
vice president of customer relations for the PGA
Tour. The family lives in Marsh Landing.
What does the future hold for Butler?
He said he's been asked to serve as a consult-
ant for the Tour for the rest of the year, but he
hopes to serve longer.
"The Tour is my life, so I hope that, in some
respects, I'm a consultant for the balance of my
life," he said.
Butler said he also wants to help raise funds
for the First Tee national schools program.

To the editor:
After reading several letters
in The Beaches Leader this week
concerning Selva Marina CC, I
feel compelled to respond.
The suggestion we turn the
land over to Atlantic Beach for
instance. First, if this was done,
it would take money from
Atlantic Beach's tax roll, and
wouldn't they be looking for a
place to recover that tax
money from guess where -
the tax payers of Atlantic
Beach? Second, if you had
inherited a piece of property
(as Selva did more or less) and
you decided to sell it for any
reason, shouldn't you be able
to do that? Clearly, my answer
Those of us who have been
members and supported Selva
for many years certainly
should have a say about what
happens to Selva; after all it is
owned by stockholders. We
love Selva and want to keep
SMCC operating for the enjoy-
ment of all who choose to be a
member and enjoy golf, ten-
nis, swimming and exercise, as
well as the friendships that
have been made over the years.
I sympathize with some of
the views presented by Selva
Linkside residents, and as one
writer said "buyer beware" -
however, it seems to me those
opposed to selling the land fail
to accept the reality of the end
result. If we don't sell the land
to upgrade the club, the club
will close and the land will be
sold and guess what, you will
get development there any-
way, probably on all of it.
SMCC does not wish to make
anyone unhappy we are try-
ing to keep the club open to be
enjoyed by members from all
of the Beaches communities, as
well as outside the area. If you
are not a member, you may
not be aware of how much the
dining facility is utilized for
weddings, business meetings,
and private parties, during the
week and almost every week-
end throughout the year.
In closing, I look at SMCC as
an asset to the entire Atlantic
Beach Community, the same
as Russell Park, Howell Park,
Atlantic Beach School, Bull
Park and The Sea Turtle. We
may not use all of these facili-
ties but they are there to be
used. All of these enhance the
value of property in Atlantic

'No respect, no respect at all'
acing a lame-duck presi-
dency and a belligerent
Democratic Congress, a
desperate President Bush
hired a medium to summon
the only spirit who could
understand him: Rodney
"Here's the problem," said
Dangerfield, as he loosened
his tie and twisted his neck
from side to side. "You got no
respect, Mr. President, no
respect at all."
"But Pelosi and Reid gave
me gifts after my State of the
"Pelosi and Reid are trying
to soak you, Mr. President.
They gave you'toys to play
with while you're soaking a
toaster and a radio."
"But I presented ideas that
we could address in a biparti-
san manner, Rodney."
"Like your health-care
ideas? Sure, common-sense
market incentives would
broaden coverage and drive
down costs. But your ideas
are already dead oh arrival.
Democrats are out to get you,
Mr. President. If you went to
a prize fight, a session of
Congress would break out."
"What about my energy
plan, Rodney? I called for a
20 percent reduction in gaso-
line usage by 2017. We could
achieve that by shifting to
ethanol and other alternative
"But ethanol is made from
corn, Mr. President. The
amount you're talking about
would require 30 million
acres of farmland. You really
think the Democratic left will
allow that much soil erosion
and pesticide use? Mr.
.President, if the Surgeon
General were a Democrat,
he'd tell you to smoke!"
"Well, how about spending,
Rodney? I submitted a budget
plan that goes into surplus
after five years. I called on
Congress to cut legislative
earmarks the line items of
pork Congress slips into bills
at the last minute in half."
Rodney laughed so hard,
his bulging eyes nearly
popped out of his head.
"Sorry, Mr. President, but I
can't imagine Democrats giv-
ing up the goodies now that
they've finally gdt their mtiffs'
on the spending levers1'.The 'r'
Democratic pork trough will
be so full, it'll have stretch
marks. And the only way
Democrats will play with you
is if a hunk of tenderloin is
dangling around your neck."
"But the Democrats said
they'd work with me. Nancy
Pelosi has been downright
flirtatious with me."
"But Mr. President, she
called you the other night
and told you to come over,
that nobody was home. You
went over to see her and
nobody was home."
"But the Democrats need to
show legislative accomplish-
ments if they hope to retain
control of Congress in 2008.
Surely they'll compromise
"Like the war in Iraq, Mr.
President? Most Democrats
voted to authorize it in 2002
when it was popular, then
they beat the war horse back
to power when it became
unpopular. You think they're
going to stop riding that
horse now? Mr. President, if
you swallowed a bottle of
aspirin, Democrats would
offer you cocktails and
encourage you to get some
"But so much is at stake,
Rodney. We can't play politics
with the war in Iraq. We need
to resolve it now or face far
more severe consequences
later. And there are other
daunting problems here at

Medicare that will only get
worse the longer we wait to

about your presidency. Gallup

Your report: "The Family
Goes All Solar" (Beaches
Leader, Feb. 28, 2007),
describes a program that has
merit if only a few home-
owners install solar units.
They would give us an inter-
esting and needed demon-
stration of the idea. Done on
a larger scale, without this
experience, makes the tax
supported subsidy question-
able. We should know what
In our community, we
have a significant number of
homeowners who may be
doing as much to lower
power plant emissions, and
they do it without recog-
nition. Their roofs are fully
shaded by trees which lower
their power demands on a
warm day and consume
C02, the supposed villain in
this case. The trees would
have to be cut down if the
owners elected to go solar
and collect the subsidy.
If we had solar homes, our
electricity supplier would be
required to have power avail-
able for them from dusk to
dawn and the dim hours that
precede and follow them, all
day on rainy days and for
quick response when dark
clouds come by. We depend
on our electric power and
any thing less than full serv-
ice presents health and safety
The cost of this readiness
involves additional operating
costs, the use of modern gen-
erating equipment, and the
consumption of expensive
fuel. It's hard to see how the"
trickle of power that the
homes send back on the rare
days when we have a blue
sky all day, could pay for all
of this. Let's see.
If we have money to
spend, I'd rather plant some

It's a looming cat-astrophe.
So say some veterinarians,
and I quote from a relevant
article published last December
on the Gainesville Sun's Web
site: "...researchers have deter-
mined that an actively repro-
ducing single female cat can
begin a reproduction chain
resulting in 4,000 cats within
Holy cats! What if there were
half a dozen of such momma
mousers in one neighborhood?
With 24,000 of their offspring

on the back fences, ear plugs

Evidently some parts of our
towns have too many cats
presently. It's become so bad
that a non-profit, mobile ani-
mal hospital is now offering
reduced-fee spay and neuter
(sterilization) services to "Stop
feline overpopulation in
Jacksonville and South
Georgia." The River City
Community Animal Hospital
(RCCAH) goes on to point out,
"Over 7,000 cats are euthanized
(put to death) each year in
Jacksonville and South Georgia
due to the reproduction of
unaltered cats." Tragically, that
happens because only a rela-
tively small proportion of ani-
mals that enter shelters are .
= adopted or entered into'a no-
kill shelter. ,* ,
At this writing, the RCCAH is
not handling dogs, although
that's reportedly planned for
June 2007. I reckon the cats are
more romantic and are breed-
ing in greater numbers. A
friend used the cat service and
is very satisfied with the out-
come. Her felines will not be
producing any kitty litters. At
its Web site, the hospital pro-
vides the dates and locations
where its "Spay Days" are to be
held, along with plenty of
other information. Cat owners
can also call 904-733-8123.
It's unfortunate that the
mobile service wasn't available
many years ago when our
Neptune Beach neighborhood
was overrun by stray cats. One
resident (long since moved
away and deceased) would feed
them, which, of course, caused
them to multiply faster.
Apparently they checked into
the bridal suite (crawl space)
beneath the residence of the
"cat feeder," and later an over-
powering odor permeated the
area. One of the felines had
died there. That effectively

My family once adopted a cat
(long-lived but now demised).
Rather than inflict her on other
area residents, we had her
spayed, declawed, etc., and
made her an in-house cat. She
had an amusing habit of doing
somersaults and other sorta
nutty moves, so my soit, Eric,
dubbed her "Cashew." She
spent lotsa time by the win-
dows, flirting in frustration
with the four-legged suitors

Consumer confidence edges up, but housing makes big picture volatile
.Relatively cheap gas prices,
a record high stock market and
loiv unemployment all con-
tributed to a rise in Floridians'
consumer confidence by two
points to 91 in February, four
points higher than at the same
tiTe a year ago, University of
Flqrida economists report.
anyong Floridians has been
volatile the last couple of
m nths," said Chris McCarty,
director of the survey research
center at UF's Bureau of
Economic and Business
"There are competing forces
acting on the consumer, and it
is till unclear how these will
pl'y out in the long term. On
thg positive side, gas prices are
stir relatively low, although
thev are headed back up. The
i..k market hit inother-
record high in February,
although it is down from that,
and employment remains solid
here in Florida, with the
unemployment rate quite low
compared to previous years."
The rise in consumer confi-
dence was broad-based, with
increases in four of the index-
es' five components. The
biggest gain was in perceptions
of personal finances now com-
pared to a year ago, which rose
four points to 84. Three com-
ponents rose three points:
expectations about personal
finances a year from now to
95; expectations about U.S.
economic conditions over the
next five years to 86; and per-
ceptions of whether it is a good
time to buy big-ticket items to
109. Expectations about
U.S.economic conditions over
the next %ear remained
unchanged at 83.
"On the down side is hous-
ing, the focus of everyone's
attention," McCarty said.
"There is no question that we
are seeing deterioration in the
sub-prime loan market -- high-
er-interest loans to consumers
with weak credit histories --
and that inventories are up
and sales of both new and
existing homes are down.
Many people ended up buying
homes they could not afford."
The question remains
whether the effects will stay
within the housing sector,
McCarty said. Although hous-
ing constriction by itself rep-
resents less than 10 percent of
the U.S. economy, the effect of
housing can move into other
sectors, he said.
Since the last, recession in
2001, consumer spending,
which is iespo.nsible for about
two-thirds -ift Ill ( S,. economic
activity, has been fueled direct-
ly by equity withdrawals from
housing, he said.
As people's homes appreciat-
ed in value, they felt comfort-
able arranging cash-out refi-
nancing, home equity loans
and home equity lines of cred-
it, McCarty said. But as sales
have slowed and homeowners
drop their prices to sell, the
value of homes in many mar-
kets is declining, making con-
sumers less comfortable with-
drawing equity from their
homes, he said.
"The big questions are how
much will consumer spending
pull back due to the decline in
real estate prices, and if other
areas of the economy, such as
business investment and
exports, can offset a possible
decline in purchasing power
from consumers," he said.
NcC.irt said lie expects the
effects on housing to spill into
other sectors of the economy
by May or June. "This should
be more pronounced here in
Florida, given the enormous
gains in the value of Florida
real estate," he said. "It has
much further to fall than other
Many people are looking to
the Federal Reserve Board for
some relief to this situation,
McCarty said. There is a sense
among some economists that
the Fed is overly concerned
with inflation and will lower
interest rates before the end of
spring, traditionally the most
active season for selling
homes, he said.
But McCarty said he believes
it is very unlikely that interest
rates will fall in the near term,
considering recent data on
inflation and statements from
board members., i ;; i _
The research center conducts
the Florida Consumer Attitude
survey monthly. Respondents
are 18 or older and live in
households telephoned ran-
domly. The preliminary index
for February was conducted
from 466 responses. The error
rate is plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buy-
ing patterns by measuring the
mood of consumers toward
purchasing. Although other
economic indicators also pre-
dict buying patterns, con-
sumer confidence tends to be
available sooner. The index is
benchmarked to 1966, so a
value of 100 represents the
same level of confidence for
the year. The value of the
index is in comparing changes
over time rather than lboking
at an isolated month.

Ponte Vedra Leader
Teen gang member-turned speaker
tells strategies for achieving success
by KRISTA DOLAN
It's miles no, worlds -
from the Bronx, N.Y., where
Pegine Echevarria was a teen
gang member, to Ponte Vedra
Beach, where she is an author
and motivational speaker.
Some of the techniques
Echevarria used to make the
trip from there to here are con-
tained in her recently released
book, "Sometimes You Just
Have to Kick Your Own Butt."
In a telephone interview last
week, Echevarria talked about
her new book and others to be
released this year,, her back-
ground and her plans for the
coming year. Following are
Q: Your bio says that you
went from ,teen gang member
and receptionist to VP of sales
and business owner? Could
you describe that?
A: I grew up in the Bronx,
New York. ... My parents
divorced, my father stopped
seeing us, and my half sister
had been living with us and
got involved with drugs and
became a junkie.
My mom was really strong
and positive, but she was also
working two, sometimes three
jobs, and talking care of us...
I had no confidence. I
thought of myself as definitely
not good enough .... I was
wild. [My mother got me
involved] with the Girl Scouts
. . She was determined [to
provide Echevarria with good
[My troop was] not like any
Girl Scout troop you could
ever think of .... [The] troop
leader was a woman executive,
she would take this gangly
group of girls downtown and
[say to other female execu-
tives] 'You stop. Talk to these
girls, tell them what they need
to do to be like you are.'
I was on the comer, I truly
asked God in my mind, this
can't be my life, you have to
have something else planned
for me. There, [I] ran home
[and knew I] needed to leave
the state, get out of my envi-
ronment, I needed to go away.
[I put the names of] five coun-
tries in a hat [and picked]
Spain and [was in] Madrid in a
month. I had just turned 18.
Q: How did you get money
together to go to Spain?
A: [I] had worked and saved
up o _emon ... y 0 -
cer t urd ..14out o
a challenge, and so, sne tried
so many ways to reach me, to
help me, empower me, but I
had my. own stuff going on
that I needed to work on.
She knew that I needed to
go. Being out there and kick-
ing my own butt in a foreign
country. Maverick, trouble
maker, it never even occurred
to me that there were these
international groups that were
going, so I would have never
applied. I see the opportuni-
ties that are out there for
young people, I think that so
many people are similar to me
in that we don't see the oppor-
tunities that are available and
if we do see them, we don't
take advantage because we
perceive that we can't draw up
the application or go and take
the opportunity. We're hold-

A: [I] found myself in a posi-
tion ... [of] opening-bilingual
nursery schools. [I] opened
three with this man [she met
in Madrid]. Three years later, I
sold my interest in the busi-
ness, returned to states eight
years to get my BA, worked
during the day [and] went to
school at night ....
Some things were so chal-
lenging, .I had to, learn tech-
niques to literally'kick myself
in the butt. You need mentors,
you need support, but ulti-
mately you need yourself to
say you're going to do it.
Q: How long have you been
in the Jacksonville area?
A: Since March 2000.
Q: What brought you here?
A: My mom moved into
Sawgrass, my brother moved
from California .. so we all
came down and moved within
six months of each other.
Q: So you have a lot of fam-
A: My brother and his wife
and two children, my aunts,
my husband my two kids [who
recently finished at Nease
Q: What do your kids think
of having a mother who is a
A: They are so used to it,
nobody knows what it's like to
have a mother who's a motiva-
tional speaker, [they'll say,]*
'Can't we just complain?'
Q: Where are your kids
A: [Son] Kenneth [Herbin] is
in the Army National Guard
[and has been] for three years.
[Daughter] Andrea Herbin [is
in the] ROTC program at MIT
[but] attends classes at
Wellesley (Mass.) College.
Q: What is your typical day
A: I'm usually up anywhere
between 5:30 and 6 in the
morning, I am so passionate
about what I do; I love what I
do with every ounce in me.
[My] first meeting this morn-
ing [March 1] was at 8 a.m. ..
[I] already had six meetings
[by noon]. . I don't really
think of it as work, I really
have fun doing all of this stuff
... [It is] typical to work [from]
6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Q: Where is "Sometimes You
Just Have to Kick Your Own
A: Amazon.com, kicky-
ourownbutt.com ... it will be

One of the meals she prepared for a
dinner there was Shrimp and Grits.
Fresh shrimp saut6ed in a butter and
olive oil with a little white wine are
served over grits in this recipe. The fla-
vor and texture of coarse stone-ground
grits are the best choice to comple-
ment the shrimp.
The recipe serves 6 to 8 and sauteing
about a pound and a half of shrimp at
a time works well. To serve a large

scoreless until the bottom of
the seventh inning Monday
night against the Raiders.
After being shut out for six
innings, Clare Wamsley got
Nease on the scoreboard with
a two-run home run in the
bottom of the seventh.
It was Wamsley's second
round-tripper of the season
but it proved too little as
Orange Park rolled to victory.

loss for the Panthers (4-5), giv-
ing up nine runs on eight hifs.

70 miles offshore over the
weekend and caught three
wahoo, the largest a 60
pbunder. All were caught on
plugs. They also caught eight
jacks and several dolphin.
A short period of bottom
fishing produced lots of beelin-
ers and triggerfish.
Capt. William Goodling with
friends Steve Swan and Ron
May took the "Venus Baby" to
the tuna patch over the week-
end and caught two wahoo to
50 pounds. They also picked up

Format change for GJKT
The AT&T Greater Jackson-
ville Kingfish Tournament
announces a major format
.change for the 2007 event.
Starting this year, anglers
will be grouped into two sepa-
-rate divisions as determined
by the boat's Length Over All
Sas per the state registration
:documents, and will be com-
peting for equal prizes.
For the first time in compet-
itive kingfishing, anglers fish-
ing in the 23 Class (boats
measuring 23' 11" or less) will
be able to compete for a sepa-
rate and equal prize structure.
: John Patrich, chairman of
Jacksonville Marine Charities,
-said, "It has become more dif-
ficult for the smaller boats to
remain competitive and the
JMC Board decided it was
time to recognize and com-
pensate the two different boat
To achieve this equality the
JMC Board voted to increase
the cash portion of the prize
structure by 50 percent.
Another big change is that
the Ultra Class (boats measur-
ing 24 feet and longer) and
the 23 Class will be competing
in an aggregate format, which
is designed to reward skill as
well as luck.
Boats are allowed to weigh
one fish.per day and the total
aggregate weight over the two
days of fishing will determine
The largest sheepshead
reported caught last week was a
12-pounder caught at the jet-
ties by Jeremy Alverez.
Capt. Dave Sipler, with Hick
Wilson, caught five red bass to
26 inches, 12 speckled trout
and a flounder.
James Gergley, Mike
Tandarich and Matt Hamilton
on the "Head Hunter"
anchored along the jetties last
Monday and caught ten
sheepshead to seven pounds,
five red bass, five trout and a
pair of flounder.
On Tuesday James and Mike
tried the Sisters Creek area and
released 18 trout to 18 inches
and caught five red bass to 26
inches along with two flounder.
Jacksonville Beach Pier man-
ager Faye Cotner reports plenty
of action last week. The water
temperature went into the 60s
and the whiting responded.
Spencer Brogden got things
started on Thursday when he
caught 80 whiting and a drum.
Each day after that he left the
pier with his cooler full of
whiting. Rick Perez had 50
whiting in his cooler on
Thursday. Stan Fryslie brought
a 25-inch red bass over the Pier
rail, the first red of the season.
Canal guide John Dyrssen,
with Dwight Hibbard and
Candy Olsen, worked the canal
last Wednesday for eight trout
using live shrimp. All had to be
released, of course.
Capt. George took his
"Mayport Princess" about 18
miles offshore last Saturday
and caught hundreds of sea
bass and beeliners. They had to
throw back over 100 snapper
that were too small.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" last Saturday with
David Marone and Phillip
Smith, reported a catch of nine
red bass, eight ringtails and two
Al Wiltshire aboard
"Sharkey's Den II" with friend
John Burroughs, fished along
the beach about five miles

That comes to mind with the
weekend announcement that
Kyle Brady has signed a fat con-
tract with the New England
Patriots after eight years of ser-
vice with the Jacksonville
Jaguars. Brady had hoped to
end his career in Teal and
Black, and he just about man-
aged to do that.
Brady's career as a tight end
went into such decline from
under-utilization during the
past four seasons it was almost
At 6'6", 280 pounds and very
intelligent as well as mobile,
Brady looked like a coach's
dream as a pass receiver and
was just that until Tom

Kyle's ability to Fred
block as though belong
that was the he's aS
only thing num- part

were as frustrat- Mark B

former New York recer

unless he gets credit for excel-
lent blocking on scoring drives.
Now with New England,
Brady is reunited with head
coach Bill Belichick, who was
the Jets assistant head coach
when Brady was there from
1995-98 before he opted for
free agency and eventually
signed with Jacksonville.
