Beaches Energy Services has
given away about 2,400 energy-
efficient light bulbs (above) since
the giveaway started last week,
Don Ouchley, director of Beaches
Energy Services, said Thursday.
Every residential customer is enti-
tled to one bulb, which can be
used in place of incandescent
bulbs. Customers have been given
the bulbs when paying their elec-
tric bills in the Jacksonville Beach
City Hall's drive-through or when
walking into City Hall, he said.
One bulb was delivered to a Ponte
Vedra man by a utility worker who
was in the area, he said. The utili-
ty company may arrange one give-
away day in Ponte Vedra if there
is enough demand, said Ouchley.
Bulbs will be available until all
30,000 are given out, he said.

Puppy love


Adoptions set record at

county's new pet center


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
It's hard to look into those'
gleaming puppy dog eyes and not
feel the urge to take home a new
addition to the family.
Perhaps that is exactly what hap-
pened Saturday at the new St.
Johns County Pet Center, when 10
cats and dogs were adopted within
six-hours.
That's a new record for the one-
month-old center, which saw a
total of 13 adoptions in February.
The new facility, located on
North Straton Road, just off U.S. 1
about 4 miles south of County


Road 210, has already taken in
about 250 animals, many of which
have been claimed by their owners,
according to Paul Studivant, ani-
mal control supervisor.
Persons adopting pets at the cen-
ter pay $45 for a male cat or dog
and $55 for a female. That price
includes the required first series of
shots and spaying or neutering.
The center is open Monday
through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4
p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m.
to 3 p.m.

Take a gamble on Nease High

By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER \
Everyone is welcome to a night of gambling at the Plantations Country Club in Ponte
Vedra Beach Saturday in support of Nease High athletics.
The Golden Panther Booster Club is hosting its primary fund-raising event with a live
and silent auction including prizes such as a Costa Rica vacation and weekend at the
Greenbriar.
The event is scheduled 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 each and include gam-
bling chips and hors d'oeuvres.
"This will be a fun evening and we're hoping the event will appeal to people who
want to come out and support their local high school, whether they have a child at
Nease or not," said Suzanne Egeln, booster club spokesperson whose daughter, Anna, is
a junior athlete at Nease.
"Nease raises about 90 percent of its budget for ath-
letics through this fund-raiser, which helps pay for
things like uniforms, transportation and expense
to upkeep grounds."
Egeln expects to sell upwards of 300 tickets / -
and hopes the event will raise $25,000. In past I
years the event has raised $20,000 to $25,000. .
This will be the second year that -. ;
four scholarships of $1,500 each
will be awarded to Nease senior..

year's event is the retire-
ment of Tim Tebow's No. 5
football jersey. Tebow led
Nease to the state champi-
onship in 2005 and is slat-
ed to be the starting -
quarterback at the
University of Florida
next season. -, 4.
"The boosters is the
team behind the team,"
Egeln said.

Nease teen says fund-raiser

would make his dad proud


by LAURA BRITTON
CONTRIBUTOR
The start of spring break
in St. Johns County is just
three weeks away, a time
when many Ponte Vedra
teens may be making plans
for travel, studies or work
during the upcoming sum-
mer months.
But one Nease High
School student will be
using the time to iron out
details for a fishing tourna-
ment he founded when his
father was undergoing
treatment for colon cancer.


Jordan Carroll of Ponte
Vedra Beach, 17, a junior at
Nease, wants to add to the
$15,000 that was raised last
summer during the first
fishing "Anglers for a
Cure" tournament, which
drew 23 boats. The second
annual event is June 23 at
Sister's Creek.
"This is the first step
toward finding a cure,"
Carroll said in a recent
interview. "We all saw
what he [his father, Doug
Carroll] had to go through,
and I don't want other kids


or families to go through
this, either."
Doug Carroll's colon
cancer was diagnosed in
November 2004, shortly
after he, his wife Ralene,
and their two children,
Jordan, then 14, and
Whitney, then 17, took a
weekend trip to Virginia
for a family wedding.
The weekend came to a
close with Doug, 46, expe-
riencing severe stomach
pains and discomfort. Less

Panel delays decision


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
St. Johns County
Commissioners voted
Tuesday to delay a decision
on a proposal that would
absolve homeowner associa-
tions from some require-
ments of Florida's open meet-
ings laws.
Under current county law,
homeowner associations
must OK certain construction
plans before the county issues
a building permit.
This protects associations'
covenants and gives them
legal backing.
But representatives of the
Marsh Landing Homeowners
Association say this inadver-


tently requires associations to
follow Florida's open meet-
ings laws, which many do not
currently do.
"It [the law] exposes them
to criminal and civil liabili-
ties," Barry Ansbacher, the
attorney representing Marsh-.
Landing, told commissioners
Tuesday.
The new ordinance would
require property owners -
rather than contractors to
get the stamp of approval
from a neighborhood's archi-
tectural review board or sign a'
document saying they have at.
least notified the board.

Prison nun brings story


to Our Lady Star of Sea


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER

An 80-year-old nun who
has lived in a Mexican prison
cell for the past 30 years
brought her message of justice
and respect for all Sunday to
a congregation at Our Lady
Star of the Sea Catholic
Church in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Mother Antonia Brenner,
called "The Prison Angel" in a
book of the same name, visit-
ed the church as part of a
speaking tour. About 175 per-
sons heard the message, said
Deacon Jim Fugit, pastoral
assistant at Our Lady Star.
Mother Antonia lives "the
Gospel message of Jesus
Christ, he said."
"She is a very peace-filled,
loving person . . All the
people I talked to said they
felt they were in the presence
of holiness."
Mother Antonia began her
ministry full time in 1977,
when she was 50, according
to her biography.
That's when she left her 15-
year-old son in the care of a
neighbor in her home in Los
Angeles to make regular visits
to La Mesa Penitentiary in
Tijuana, Mexico, according to
the book.
By that time, she had been
married and divorced twice,
raising seven children. She
had taken over her father's
office supply business in
1956, according to the book.
He was 50, and she was 29.
The full-time ministry arose
from the charity work she had
done as an active Catholic,
according to the book.
Her daily work with the
inmates at La Mesa include
distributing basic necessities
like food and blankets and
working for more humane
treatment of the prisoners.
She has also helped to
improve the medical and den-
tal care available to them,
according to her biographers,
Mary Jordan and Kevin
Sullivan.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning
journalists won the
Christopher Award for "The
Prison Angel." The book
chronicles the life story .pf
Nlothei Antonia, born Mary.
Clarke Breiinner in 1926 in
California.


In addition to housing
Mother Antonia, the prison at
La Mesa holds about 6,500
men and 500 women prison-
ers, said Pat Smith. Smith
helps with Mother Antonia's
ministry and is a board mem-
ber of Mother Antonia's char-
itable organization.
"She considers it a real priv-
ilege to be allowed to live at
the prison," said Smith.
Mother Antonia's efforts to
maintain peace in the prison
during riots and other distur-
bances are detailed in her
biography.
Her ministry also encom-
passes prisoner's families,
prison guards, prison officials,
local police, and their fami-
lies.
"She is loved so well. The


United States have increased,
said Smith.
During her visit to Florida,
she was also scheduled to
meet with groups in Sarasota
and Winter Park, said Smith.
In Ponte Vedra, Mother
Antonia stayed at the home of
Amy and George Tellam.
Tellam, who is from Southern
California, said he met
Mother Antonia several years
ago through a mutual friend.
Tellam said that Mother
Antonia's work with the
inmates restores a lot of digni-
ty to them.
"She believes everybody is
born good," he said. "Her
whole message is to serve the
poorest of the poor."

guards love her even though
she is tough with them," said
Smith.
In 1990 Mother Antonia
met Pope John Paul II. She
also me Mother Teresa during
trips to California and
Tijuana.
In 2003, Mother Antonia
founded a religious communi-
ty for women with the con-
sent of Bishop Rafael Munoz
of the Diocese of Tijuana. The
order is called the Eudist
Servants of the Eleventh
Hour.
Following the publication

Puppy: Pet center open 1 month


Photo by Laura Fowler
attell, 19, plays in the grass with two puppies up for adoption Wednesday

Continued from A-1


About 26 animals have been adopted so
far and some others feral cats, aggressive
dogs or dying animals have been put to
sleep, Studivant said.
The center was built to hold 160 dogs
and 75 cats.
When full capacity is reached, Studivant
said, decisions about which animals to
euthanize will be based on their "adopt-
ability" and how long they've been in the
center.
Studivant said the St. Johns County legal
department advised him that pitt bulls


should not be available for adoption for
liability purposes.
Of the animals turned into the center,
most are strays, but some are brought in
by owners who aren't willing or able to
take care of them.
Lost animals are more easily found now,
he said, because of a microchip that can be
inserted under the skin of the animal just
behind the neck.
Studivant said some owners have
claimed their lost pets at the center very
quickly because the devise gives the own-
ers' names, phone numbers and addresses.


Ordinance: Said to offer protection


Continued from A-1
This would be required
before any permits from the
county are issued.
According to Ansbacher,
this would ensure that home-
owner associations are noti-
fied of all projects.
If not, associations could
easily acquire a stop work
order from a court, because
the property owner, in sign-
ing that document, has
acknowledged that he or she
violated the proper proce-
dure.
But some said the new ordi-
nance would force homeown-
er associations into court-
rooms more often.
"This makes money for
attorneys," Mary Kohnke, a
former county commissioner,
said Tuesday.
Kohnke said associations
would need to hire an attor-
ney every time a permit is
issued for an unapproved


project.
Clara Cowan, a representa-
tive of Seaside and president
of the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition, echoed Kohnke's
coummentnI.
"We can't afford to fund the
401k's for the legal profes-
sion," Cowan said, adding
that Seaside's Board of
Directors cannot afford to
hire an attorney.
Commissioners had some
trouble distinguishing the
proposed ordinance from the
recently approved
Neighborhood Bill of Rights.
The Bill of Rights requires
the county to notify regis-
tered neighborhoods of any
applications for land use or
zoning changes.
Ansbacher said his pro-
posed ordinance is different
because it applies to construc-
tion, not land-use.
Still, commissioners wanted
more time to review the pro-


posal and see if other options
are available.
Commissioner Ron Sanchez
expressed his inclination to
deny the ordinance, and none
of the commissioners
expressed any support for it,
The move to change the
ordinance began last year,
when the county granted a
site development permit to a
commercial project within
Marsh Landing's boundaries.
The permit allowed devel-
opers to move a large pile of
dirt and fencing onto the site,
without the Marsh Landing
Homeowner's Association
approving the plans for the
project.
The disagreement has since
been settled, but Ansbacher
said the ordinance needs to be
changed to further protect
other neighborhood associa-
tions.

Publix proposes new JB store


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A super market could return
to central Jacksonville Beach if
store representatives agree to
fund a portion of road
improvements needed to miti-
gate traffic concerns on two
arterial roadways.
Publix Super Market is con-
sidering opening a new 29,160-
square-foot store on a three-
acre parcel at the southeast cor-
ner of 5th Street South and
Beach Boulevard at the site of
the former McCormick proper-
ty.
Craig Buchanan, president of
WestCrest Development Inc.,
said in a letter to Planning and
Development Director Steve
Lindorff that he anticipates the
Publix project will be complete
and open by June 2008.
The project would also uti-
lize the existing 4,714-square-
foot Aamco Transmission prop-
erty, and the Bella Vista Del
Mar Sales Center in the former
Haden Ham location, accord-
ing to plans filed with the city.
The project would consist of
a 29,160-square-foot Publix
Super Market with approxi-
mately 4,870-square-feet of
ancillary retail space for a total
of a 34,030-square-foot shop-
ping center development.
A road capacity analysis was
recently completed by the
city's traffic engineer. The
developer will reimburse the
city for the cost of the study.
The study identified failing
levels of service in the p.m.
peak hour traffic on the por-
tion of Beach Boulevard from
the Intracoastal Waterway east


to Penman Road.
It states that the deficiency
will be alleviated once the
widening of Beach Boulevard
and the realignment of
Penman Road is complete.
"The developer of the pro-
posed shopping center could
potentially help to finance
these, or other, improve-
ments," engineers concluded.
In addition, potential
improvements at 3rd Street
and Beach Boulevard could
help facilitate pedestrian access
to the store, the report said.
"Pedestrian movements are
currently hindered in this area
due to the fact that the inter-
section of AlA and Beach
Boulevard is operating at near
capacity," the study said.
"Pedestrian improvements at
this intersection or at the inter-
section of 3rd Street and 2nd
Avenue South would help to
[create] a more pedestrian-
friendly environment."
Engineers advised that a
study be conducted to deter-

city to fund a portion of the
pedestrian improvements.
An ordinance requires devel-
opers to contribute a "fair
share" toward transportation
improvements before building.
Mann said the
Comprehensive Land Use
Designation was amended sev-
eral years ago to change the
property from industrial to
commercial service.
Publix officials must submit
an application for Planned
Unit Development rezoning
before the city can hear a
request for right of way aban-
, donment of an existing unde-
veloped alley in the middle of a
parcel, Mann said.
Closing the alleyway will not
have an impact on traffic and
the project will not require any
of the surrounding streets to be
closed to through traffic, Mann
said.
The city's planing staff has
issued a preliminary recom-
mendation of approval to
abandon the alley.


Miss America 2003 Erika Harold is about to crown student Spencer Murphy as "Mr. America" while
speaking to students from St. Paul's Catholic School Friday. Harold spoke to 6th, 7th and 8th
graders about refraining from premarital sex, drugs and violence, which is the message of Project
SOS, a non-profit organization committed to helping youth make the "best.choices." The program,
which sponsored Miss America's visit, seeks to provide parents with educational resources to help
them reduce high risk behavior in their children.

'll wear a blond shag hair-
cut, a leisure suit and sing a
syrupy Barry Manilow tune.
If that doesn't get me onto
'American Idol,' Simon Cowell
can eat his own head."
"Ah, yes, you sum up
America's fascination with fame
and celebrity. Both are explored
in 'Fame Junkies,' an interesting
new book by Jake Halpern.
"Did you know that more
people watch 'American Idol'
than all three major network
evening news shows com-
bined?"
"It's no wonder. Things
haven't been as compelling
since Rather left the air."
"Did you know, according to a
study by Harvard University
and the Kaiser Family
Foundation, that 31 percent of
teens are' convinced they'll be
famous? They believe they're
entitled to fame -- that it will
solve all their problems."
"It'll solve my problems. The
waitress at the diner will finally
go out with me."
"Halpern interviewed 653
middle-school students in
Rochester, N.Y. \When he asked
them if they'd rather be a,-. pr-
sonal assistant to a celebrity, a
corporate CEO, an Ivy League
president, a Navy SEAL or a U.S.
senator, 43.4 percent of girls
chose 'celebrity assistant.'"
"I'd rather do chores for a
celebrity than be a senator.
Though I have to admit rubbing
cream on Rosie O'Donnell's
bunions would get a little old."
"When given the option of
becoming famous, beautiful,
stronger or smarter, boys chose
fame almost as often as intelli-
gence. Girls chose fame even
more often."
"That isn't a fair question.


TOM PURCELL
COLUMNIST
Fame has nothing to do with
intelligence. Isn't that made
clear every time Hollywood
actors open their yaps?"
"Our longing for fame is a
recent phenomenon. Consider:
In 1963, according to Gallup,
Americans most admired
Lyndon Johnson, Winston
Churchill and Martin Luther
King Jr. In 2005, Bono and
Donald Trump topped the list."
"Halpem told me there are
two types of kids who long for
fame most the spoiled ope.s
whose parents taught them
they were the center of the uni-
verse, and kids who were under-
appreciated by their parents."
"Talk about under-appreciat-
ed. My mother used to hang a
Budweiser around my neck so
the old man would read to me."
"The longing also correlates to
the self-esteem movement of
the 1970s. By praising every-
thing children did, adults
unwittingly created teens and
young adults who can't take
criticism and who demand the
praise they think fame will
bring."


"Ah, the good old days. When
we played kickball, we weren't
permitted to compete, and
everybody got a trophy!"
"The result is that we've creat-
ed a society of young narcissists.
Five psychologists just released
an interesting study. It found
that today's college kids are
more narcissistic than previous
generations. Narcissists tend to
lack empathy. They're con-
. sumed with self-love. They
crave fame because they want
the adulation of millions."
"I don't need to be adored by
millions. But a few hundred
thousand would be nice."
"Freud had a term for what is
going on: wishful thinking.
We've created a generation of
kids who are lost in a fantasy
world. They see themselves as
they'd like to be, rather than as
they really are. You have to
wonder what happens when
people who crave fame fail to
achieve it or when people who
achieve it realize it doesn't solve
their problems and ends up cre-
ating even more.
"It makes me realize how
lucky I was to grow up as I did.
,\Ve had only three television
channels -- no celebrity shows
were on. And I was part of a big
family. We had to learn how to
share and laugh and be consid-
erate. Narcissistic behavior
would have gotten us ground
ed."
"Look, as delightful as this dis-
cussion is, you still haven't
answered my question. You
think the blond shag haircut,
leisure suit and a syrupy Barry
Manilow tune will get me to the
big time?"
"Why not. It worked for Barry
Manilow."

Commission should say no to Selva Marina's request


To theweditor:
Don't like the way you are
being treated? "Suck it up" resi-
dents of Atlantic Beach! In the
midst of a thriving Atlantic
Beach community, a failing
business, Selva Marina Country
Club (SMCC), has been allowed
to assault the character of
Atlantic Beach with the sanc-
tion of the Community
Development Board. "Suck it
up!" is what the Chairman of
the Community Development
Board, Sam Jacobson, stated as
his position on SMCC's request
to build over 100 homes on 27
acres of land. Too bad for those
of you opposed to building
PUDs in the middle of Atlantic
Beach; "Suck it up". Thanks for
your carefully thought out rem-
edy, Mr. Chairman.
The land where SMCC stands
was given to them as a gift, a


gift to the entire community. It
was not a gift to a select few
who would butcher it after they
failed to properly manage their
club. Now, as a result of poor
club management they are sell-
ing out our community to serve
their own purpose which is not
that of the Atlantic Beach com-
munity.
Unless the Commissioners
and Mayor of Atlantic Beach
stop SMCC, residents should
prepare for more pollution (car,
noise and chemical) and chron-
ic health problems. Sadly, we
will see a loss of the communi-
ty character of Atlantic Beach in
the immediate future. This
change includes a road cutting
right through the golf course to
connect Mayport Road to Selva
Marina Drive.
Neptune Beach lost their
fight against Wal-Mart because


Wal-Mart made their applica-
tion days before Neptune Beach
got a law on the books to pre-
vent big box stores. Now is the
time for Atlantic Beach to
decide what their future is
going to be. Atlantic Beach has
the opportunity to prevent a
negative community-altering
change by simply saying "no."
"No, SMCC", we are not going
to allow you to disrupt our
lifestyle and pollute our com-
munity because of your inabili-
ty to manage your business!
Mr. Mayor and City commis-
sioners, say "no" to SMCC or
else the citizens of Atlantic
Beach will have to "suck it up"
and have 200 plus cars driving
down Seminole Road. to Wal-
Mart every weekend.

Greed overwhelms the best interests of community


To the editor:
This is a sad time for Neptune
Beach and the people who care
about this community. We
thought we could make a differ-
ence. That our opinions really
mattered. That we would be
heard. And we would prevail
and be able to keep Wal-Mart
out of Neptune Beach.
We were hopeful and opti-
mistic even when we heard
from the beginning of all this -


a year ago that one person
from the city council, Eric
Pardee, said that he "loves"
Wal-Mart and welcomes them
to our community.
Even then, when we realized
his concerns were not about the
negative effect Wal-Mart would
have on Neptune Beach, we still
worked toward our goal of pro-
tecting our neighborhood. We
thought we had a chance when
there was arbitration. So much


for that. Well, it isn't an old
Jimmy Stewart movie folks,
where it all works out in the
best interest of the community.
This is our own reality show -
where greed and the best inter-
est of the developers prevail
over the best interest of our
community.

HOYLE DEMPSEY
COLUMNIST


Going slow


in fast lane


Have a slightly younger
cousin named Jay, who
shares my passion for driv-
ing like no one else in my fam-
ily. We are both truly car guys.
This past weekend Jay invit-
ed my wife, Dianne, and me to
see his new place and, more
important, his garage.
Jay flipped the lights on a
show room perfect 1963
Porsche' 356! Sure this is all
fun and games until someone's
jaw drops to the floor and shat-
ters or worst yet, my eyes pop
out of my head. Quick glance
in one of the Porsche's twin
rear view mirrors assured me I
still had a face. I murmured
"Nice ride Jay!"
"Thanks Hoyle, if it's not
raining, we'll take it out in the
morning for a spin! She runs
like a top, but the speedometer
sticks every now and then.
The car's very solid!"
What a great night sleep I
had that night. In the morn-
ing after breakfast Jay kind of
shook his head, stood up and
smiled, "OK Hoyle, I can take a
hint, let me get my Porsche
keys!"
I tried to look shocked,
"Hint, what kind of hint?"
Jay picked up his keys and
chuckled, "I doubt you usually
eat breakfast wearing a wool
English driving cap! I must
admit, the matching scarf is a
nice touch!"
Did. you know that in
Georgia cars made before 1964
aren't required to have seat-'
belts? This beautiful 356 S
missed "click it Or ticket" by
one year. Jay drove the vehicle
with precision through the
traffic in Atlanta's affluent
North East Marietta suburb.
With every quick gear change
and down shift I was reminded
of the exotic cars in the 60s
James Bond movies. I seemed
to hear the faint sound of the
heavy 007 guitar riffs. I
glanced over at a limo with
dark tinted windows, was it Dr.
No? Maybe it's Gold Finger? I
thought "step on it James, I
mean Jay!"
Suddenly I heard "Hoyle,
HOYLE!"
I looked over at Jay, "Sorry to
raise my voice Hoyle, you must
have been in deep thought.
I'm pulling over and let you
drive us back to my place!"
Trying to wipe the grin off
my face, I drove the sleek old
Porsche through the increasing
Saturday morning traffic. This
was my chance to pilot a true
driver's car. Everyone who saw
me would be envious. Out
there lurks cars filled with
green eyed monsters. My grin
got wider as I .glanced at the
speedometer. Hey, 50 miles per
hour, that's a little over the 45
speed limit but I'm a man with
a.....
"Hey Grandpa, move over!"
HONK HONK!! Beep Beep!
"What do you think this is, a
parade?"
Red faced, I glanced at my
cousin, "Grandpa, parade, I'm
going 5 miles over the speed
limit!"
Jay reached over and tapped
on the speedometer, "Oh darn,
it was stuck on 50. Look you
were going 30 miles per hour!"
HONK HONK "Here's my
street Hoyle, hang a left, we're
almost back to my place!"
After I pulled up in the
garage, I got out of the car and
did a "Steve Spurrier visor hat'"
throw down with my wool
English driving cap! I was out
of the car guy club! My wife
came running out,
"Something's wrong Hoyle!
Did you get a speeding ticket?"
Jay was doubled over laugh-
ing, "He might have if he'd
been in a school zone!"

Foursomes are needed
Monday at Ponte Vedra Golf &
Country Club [formerly Oak
Bridge] to support the Fletcher
High mock trial team's trip to
the state tournament.
The First Annual Friends of
Fletcher Law Golf Tournament
is a captain's choice format with
a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The
cost is $75 for an individual;
$300 per foursome; $425 per
foursome with sponsor and
$200 for corporate sponsor. All
proceeds benefit the mock trial
team's trip to the state tourna-

April 1.
"We've had tremendous suc-

said Ed Lange, Fletcher Law
instructor who led the team to
the state title and 10th in the
nation in 1997 and the top four
in the state six times since
1994.
"We are self sufficient. The
school board gives us nothing
and the money just isn't coming
in from the attorneys like it used
to. We used to get 40 attorneys
to give us $100 and that would
cover the expenses but
it's getting increasingly more
difficult every year to get that."
Lange said the team needs


between $4,000 and $5,000 to
cover hotel, rental van, and
food. Lange, also the Fletcher
boys head golf coach, decided to
host a golf tournament to raise
money for the trip.
Fletcher has represented
Duval County in the fourth dis-
trict circuit every year but two
since Lange started taking teams
in 1991. Lange estimated about
150 students in the Fletcher
Law mock trial program have
gone on to law school.
This year's Fletcher team is
Josh Byatt, Major Forbess, Brian
Wallace, Thomas Blanchard,
Kendra Merta, Julie Dias, Sydney
Hanson and Mandy Russo.
Every year students perform a
two-hour criminal or civil trial.
This years Senators will be
doing a civil trial about a stu-
dent's use of the computer and
the violation of first amend-
ment rights and freedom of
speech.
"The experience is wonderful
for these kids," Lange said.
Ponte Vedra Golf & Country
Club will be closed except for
players in the tournament. The
cost includes golf fees, golf cart,
range balls, lunch and prizes. All
donations are tax deductible.

Dinner's ready...

Chefs open business to prep meals and deliver


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
A week's worth of gourmet
meals prepared by a personal
chef and delivered to your home
is being offered by a new busi-
ness.
Rachel and Michael Deremer
started Dinner's On Me for
working parents, busy profes-
sionals and those who don't
want to prepare meals every
night.
"First we meet with our clients
to discuss menu options, likes
and dislikes or if there are any
food allergies or special diets to
consider," said Deremer, 25, a
graduate of Johnson & Wales
University in Denver, Colorado.
"We plan the menu, do the
grocery shopping and bring din-
ners in containers to our clients'
homes every week with direc-
tions for reheating."
The Deremers deliver meals
for the week on Mondays and
pick up the empty containers
from the previous week's meals
for use the following week.
Clients are charged a grocery
bill which varies depending
upon the menu and labor cost
per week which is estimated at
$175 for five entrees; $150 for
four entrees; $125 for three
entrees and $100 for two
entrees.
"It's so nice not to have to
cook or even think about it
every night. It's great, it's
healthy and it's easy,." said
Jennifer Pobst, a mother of three

with fresh raspberry sauce.
Deremer said they draw upon
years of working in various
kitchens for their inspiration
and also come up with ideas
from cooking magazines, restau-
rants and TV Food Network.
"We spend most of our down-
time cooking and entertaining
friends so we figured why not
make this our career and share
our talents and passions with
others," said Michael, 28, whose
cooking experience includes

Local works for better weather information


:: by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A University of North Florida professor and a
'team of experts used both calculus and physics to
,implement a model that helps predict local weath-
:er patterns.
Dr. Patrick Welsh, executive director of the
Advanced Weather Information Systems Lab "at:
:UNF and a West Beaches resident, helped establish
the Florida Coastal Storms program. He explained
.that he primarily involved in the operation of a
computerized model that helps predict weather
patterns.
The program was first established in Florida and
scientists used the St. Johns River basin as the
focal area for a series of nine projects which were
initiated with the guideline of helping communi-
ties respond to storms, according to Welsh.
The goal of the program, he said, is to "assist
coastal communities to mitigate the impact of
storms by developing new tools, data, informa-
tion, forecast models and training."
. The computerized model is a "calculus-based
numerical representation of the atmosphere,"
according to Welsh.
Welsh said he was "convinced from the begin-
ning this was the kind of thing we needed in
Florida to get better forecasts."
The program and this model will help coastal
communities better prepare for storms, he said.
"Data isn't glamorous, buit is absolutely crucial
to the problem of coastal storms," Welsh said.

The Renaissance Classical
Orchestra is a virtuoso strain
ensemble of international
soloists gathered from
Sarosund the world. Now un-
mu aders the leadership of the
multi-talented violinist, Sergiu Schwartz, this Florida- based
chamber orchestra draws on a rich repertoire, encompassing
works from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20eg Cen-
tury. They are an exceptionally energetic group of virtuoso
string soloists who move beyond classical performance to
bring music to new audiences. The orchestras dynamic vir-
tuosity and intimate style will entertain and challenge every-
one. The musicians stand in performance, and are featured
throughout the season as soloists. Because all of the RCO
musicians are leaders, the orchestra rotates its concertmas-
ters and principal players.
Sergiu Schwartz's appearances in NorthAmerica, Europe and
Israel have brought unanimous critical accolades for his beau-
tiful tone, brilliant technique, distinctive style and elegance.
As the winner of the Artists International Competition, Mr.
Schwartz gave a recital at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall. The

BEAM expands to handle growing needs


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A Beaches outreach organi-
zation is expanding its offices
to better serve its growing
clientele.
The Beaches Emergency
Assistance Ministry (BEAM)
will take over city-owned
space formerly occupied by
the First Coast Family
Services in the Community
Services Center located at the
corner of 9th Street and 6th
Avenue South.
Funding cuts forced former


tenants First Coast Family
Services to find another loca-
tion, City Manager George
Forbes said. The group noti-
fied the city that it was termi-
nating the lease last October.
BEAM will lease the 775-
square-foot space for five
years with an option to
extend the lease on a yearly
basis.
The cost is $,9.73 per square
foot for a total of $7,540.75
per year with an annual
increase of four percent.
Established in 1985, BEAM
currently leases four suites in


the building to provide short
term assistance to families in
crisis.
The not-for-profit group
assists with financial needs
including rent, utilities and
prescriptions and relies on
donations to supply food,
clothing, gas, diapers and
personal care items.
Forbes said the city pur-
chased the building several
years ago with Community
Development Block Grant
monies.
"Jacksonville Beach is one
of the few cities that owns


property to use to strictly
provide services to low and
moderate income citizens,"
he said. "It's a great thing I
think we do for the commu-
nity."
Councilman Rick Knight
said he supports the move
and praises BEAM for its com-
munity endeavors.
"I think the world of them.
They do good work," he said.
"They've got a set of rules
and they live by that set of
rules."

Marriage Retreat at
Neptune Baptist Church
A Marriage Weekend Retreat
will be held today and tomor-
row at Neptune Baptist Church.
Bobby and Peggy Powell, lay
ministers from Kentsville
Baptist Church in Chesapeake,
Virginia will lead the retreat.
The Powells, who have led
many marriage conferences, will
address ways to promote
"healthy and happy marriages"
based on insights from the
Bible said Tanya McAvoy,
Minister of Education and
Evangelism at Neptune Baptist.
"The divorce rate is so high
and we believe the answer is in
the Bible," she said.
Some of the topics to be cov-
ered during the retreat include
"The Good, Bad, and the Ugly of
Marriage; So This is Marriage;
True Love from God's Word, and
the Billion Dollar Solution."
The opening session of the
retreat begins at 6:30 p.m. with
hors d'oeuvres being served in
the church Fellowship Hall at
407 Third Street in Neptune
Beach.
Tomorrow, the retreat begins
with a luncheon at noon and
concludes at 4 p.m.
The retreat is open to the
community. The cost is $15 per
person which includes child-
care.
Registration will be taken
today at 249-2307 ext. 24.
Anyone interested can also reg-
ister at the church at the begin-
ning of the retreat.
Following the retreat,
Neptune Baptist will begin 6-


week "Building Strong
Marriages" Bible Studies that
will meet in the evening, said
McAvoy.
Anyone from the retreat who
is interested in continuing will
be encouraged to join these
small group studies, she said.
Divorce Care at Palm
Valley Baptist
A new session of the 13-week
Divorce Care Class will begin,
at Palm Valley Baptist Church
on Wednesday, March 14.
"People go through a grieving
process following a divorce,"
said Joe Wright, Facilitator for
Divorce Care.
Divorce Care is a Christ-based,
faith-based approach to working
through the experience of being
divorced. The classes help peo-
ple adjust to life changes result-
ing from divorce.
Wright, who is a member of
Palm Valley Baptist Church, is
married but has experienced a
divorce in his own life. This will
be the third time he has led the
Divorce Care Class at Palm
Valley Baptist, he said.
There are many life changes
following a divorce and depres-
sion and loneliness are not
uncommon, said Wright.
I People are coping with child
care and custody changes,
financial challenges, a nd
changes in relationships.
An important consideration
after a divorce is also under-
standing "what not to do....such
as not jumping into another
relationship, said Wright.
In the Divorce Care classes,
Wright uses videos featuring
members of the clergy and
counselors.


Small group discussions fol-
low, allowing everyone an
opportunity to talk. An impor-
tant question asked at every
meeting is "how was your
week," he said.
People are vulnerable follow-
ing a divorce. At Divorce Care,
the fact that this is a safe envi-
ronment for sharing is impor-
tant.
"We tell people that what's
said in the room, stays in the
room," said Wright.
"We try t6 minister to you
and get life back on track....In
the end, we try to work toward
forgiveness," he said.
Childcare is provided since
this is often an important con-
cern for single parents. The
church also has a Wednesday
evening dinner at 6 p.m.
People attending Divorce
Care are welcome to attend the
dinner with their children and
make a small contribution for
the meal, said Wright.
Divorce Care begins at 6:30
p.m. and usually concludes by 8
to 8:30 p.m.
There is no charge for the
class. Participants are asked to
purchase a workbook which
costs $10. Contact the church
office at 285-2447 for informa-
tion; the church is located at
4890 Palm Valley Road in Ponte
Vedra.
Divorce Care is an inter-faith
experience. It is open to anyone
and most of those who attend
are not members of Palm Valley
Baptist, said Wright
"We are not looking to con-
vert anyone. It is an outreach to
the Ponte Vedra community."
We encourage people "to
come and get better and get
over the pain," said Wright.

First-year Senators team

impresses Nease coach


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
For a fledgling girls lacrosse
program, Fletcher made a good
impression on Nease head
coach Mindy McCord Tuesday
night. While the Panthers easi-
ly handled the Senators 15-4,
the Nease coach came away lik-
ing what she saw.
"That's the best first-year
team I've seen," McCord said. "I
think we were a little stunned
when they came out and scored
two quick goals on us. They
play with a lot of enthusiasm
and with more experience
they'll be even better."
Thanks to the stick work of
attacker Romy Sidelsky who
scored a pair of goals in the
game's opening
moments,
Fletcher found
itself up 2-0 on
the much more
experienced
and battle-test-
ed Panthers. '
"We knew it
was going to be
a hard game
and it's our first
season, but we
had a 3-0
record and had SENATOR
played well PANTHER
since the begin-
ning of the
season," said ... ..................
Sidelsky. "We I
just came in It hurts to
here opti-
mistic [and] Francis] bu
loping to do team one p
our best,
Which we did. n't determir
They're just a But surely
really good
team so it was other girls tI
a'learning different rol(
experience for
all. of us." ...... ...
: The
Panthers Mind)
iegrouped to Girls lacr
score 12
unanswered
goals and took a 10-goal lead at
the break. Jess Gimbel led the
way, finding the back of the
net six times while teammate
Anna Eglin had a pair of goals.
SBecause of the Panthers' 10-
point lead, the second half
began with a running dock as
mandated by Florida High
School Athletic Association
rules. Nease substituted liberal-
ly and some junior varsity play-
ers shuffled in and out of the
lineup as the Panthers main-
tained their advantage but tried
not to run up the score. It was
14-2 before Senators attacker
Molly Bole netted a pair of
goals to bring the game a little
closer.
"We expected this to be a
learning experience and it was,
but you know, our girls never
let down and they had a lot of
fun," said Senators head coach
Josh Covelli.
"We need to continue to play
teams like Nease. It's the only
way we're going to get better. I
know Nease wants to continue
to play us; it's a great rivalry
and I know they want us to get


better to continue great lacrosse
in northeast Florida."
The outcome was to be
expected with a first-year team
going up against a program
that has been around for seven
seasons. Nease High boasts a
veteran varsity squad, a junior
varsity and dub teams at the
middle school level in Ponte
Vedra that serve as a feeder pro-
gram for the high school.
It's a model Covelli would
like to emulate at Fletcher. But
for now, the emphasis is still on
the fundamentals of lacrosse.
"They've picked it up," the
Senators coach said.
"Compared to other teams in
Duval County that are in the
same position we're in, I think
we're steps ahead of them.

"At the
7 beginning of
the season
these girls real-
ly didn't
understand
-" anything about
the game-
they couldn't
pass or catch.
Now they're
passing and
catching,
they're getting

15 field quickly,
much better
than some of
. ....... the teams
we've played.

little harder,
the but they're
oes- working on
it."
ime. Covelli said
eed practices at
the beginning
Ip in of the season
focused solely
on fundamen-
tals, but the
team has pro-
rd ..gressed so
ch quickly it's
now a 50-50


mix of funda-
mentals and game strategy.
"In the very beginning they
looked at it as, 'Let's just go out
there and have a good time,'"
he explained. "But now they're
seeing that they're good ath-
letes. They know they can play
this game."
For the Panthers, the game
against Fletcher provided a wel-
come respite between last week-
end's Sebastian Classic tourna-
ment in which Nease fell to
Park Vista, currently ranked sec-
ond in the state, and tonight's
showdown with Florida's No. 1
team Orlando Lake Brantley.
The task is even more difficult
because Nease's leading scorer,
Casey Francis, is out for the sea-
son with an ACL tear.
"It hurts to lose her but I told
the team one player doesn't
determine a game. But surely we
need other girls to step up in dif-
ferent roles," McCord said.
"We're just trying to keep it real
positive and let players know
the best thing they can do ... is
to say, 'Yeah, we're going to miss
her but I'm a good player, too,
and I'll step up.'"

ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Nease High only returns one state weightlifting
qualifier from last year, but the reloaded Panthers
are off to a 2-0 start in dual-meet competition this
season.
Head coach Danny Cowgill's
squad outscored Section 2 rival
St. Augustine 51-39 on
Wednesday, winning seven of .
the 10 weight classes. ..
And, for the second straight 0
week, individual Nease lifters
booked school records in either
the bench press, clean and jerk or
two-lift total.
Francisco Burgin benched 205
pounds in the 119-pound class to
take first and set a new school JACKETS
record. His two-lift total of 350
outdistanced teammate Corzell PANTHE I
White (280), who took a first at
119 last week against Fleming Island.
Senior Quinton Huggins continues to impress
with a second school record in as many weeks.
Huggins, who won at the 169 class, benched
285 and cleaned 280 for a school-record 565 total.
He set a school mark for best clean and jerk at 169
with a 275 lift last week.
Senior Al Della Porta was second at 169 with an
impressive 500 total, including a 245 bench and
255 C&L.
Other class winners for Nease:


Nick Duncan (350 total) at 129;
Matt Lundy (560) at 183;
Alex Kenney (610) at 199;
Brett Russi (600) at 219; and
James Wilson (650) at heavyweight.
Ben Cowell placed second at 199 with 610
total, but lost due to weight dif-
ferential. He also booked a 300
C&L.
Ty Carzoli, a junior, was second
-' at 219 with a 545 total, including
-. a 275 C&L. Junior Ramon Booi
placed third among heavy-
weights with a 555 total.
Jimmy Stover, who set a school
record last week in the clean and
jerk (220 pounds) at the 139 class,
' scratched this week in the same
lift.
39 Wilson (meet-high 335 bench)
is Nease's only state qualifier
S 51 from last year. He tied for 11th
among Class 2A heavyweights
with a 650 total.
St. Augustine's Herschel Pollack, the Class 1A
runner-up at 129 last year, had a 490 total in win-
ning the 139 class at Nease.
The Panthers travel to Baker County High for a
tri-meet next week and to Palatka for the sub-sec-
tional March 21. The St. Johns River Conference
meet is set for March 28, also at Palatka.
The sectional meet is April 15 at Ridgeview
High. The 2A state meet is slated for Saturday,
April 21, at a site to be determined.

Blood clots in the legs can sometimes be serious


Vice President Dick
Cheney returned to the
U.S. last week from an
overseas trip to Afghanistan
and Pakistan. He then began
to feel what was described as
"minor discomfort" in his calf
and an ultrasound of the area
was obtained which showed
he had developed a blood
clot, known medically as a
"deep vein thrombosis" or
"DVT."
Cheney is now he is being
treated with blood thinners or
anticoagulantss" that he will
take for several months
according to White House
reports.
While the exact cause of the
blood clot cannot be deter-
mined, there is a significant
association of international
flights and blood clots, com-
monly referred to as "econo-
my class syndrome."
Flyers who are at greatest
risk are those with varicose
veins or cancer, smokers, indi-

viduals with history of leg
clots, recent leg surgery or
injury, pregnant women,
women taking birth control
pills or hormone-replacement
therapy, overweight individu-
als, elderly people, and very
tall people (because they may
not be able to move their legs
around as much).


Patients at high risk are
encouraged to take aspirin
prior to departure and wear
compressive hose to reduce
their risk of developing a clot.
Blood clots can form in the
lower extremities of those per-
sons who are inactive for both
long periods of time, such as
seen with illness, lower leg
fractures, or major surgery,
but it can also occur in those
inactive for short periods of
time, as seen in cross-country
or cross-Atlantic travel.
The development of a blood
clot in the leg is commonly
associated with swelling and
pain in the calf. Most blood
clots are small and are not life
threatening, but may require
hospitalization for initial
treatment.
The more serious ones, deep
vein thromboses can be life
threatening, for they can dis-
lodge from the wall of the
vein, and then travel toward
the heart and into the lungs,
causing a pulmonary


embolism which can be fatal.
Cheney was checked to ver-
ify that he had not developed
any evidence of a pulmonary
embolism.
In patients undergoing
major orthopedic surgery
such as joint replacements,
doctors preventatively treat
these patients with blood
thinners such as aspirin,
heparin or coumadin to
decrease the chances of form-
ing these clots. These patients
are at risk for many reasons;
including the fact that blood
tends to pool within the legs
during the surgery itself, and
for the fact that they are not
likely to be immediately
mobile right after surgery.
Other steps that are taken
to decrease the chances of
forming a clot include the use
of compressive pumps or
"sequential compression
devices" that literally squeeze
the legs to keep the blood
moving while the patient is
bed ridden.


Patients may also wear com-
pressive stockings or hose
either in bed or once they are
up and walking.
A patient who has had a
"knee scope" is not generally
put on anticoagulants for the
likelihood of developing a
clot is much lower. The pro-
cedure is relatively short, with
less pooling of blood in the
legs, and therefore less likely
to occur.
Also, given the fact that
patients usually are able to get
right up and begin walking
the next day, their risks are
substantially reduced.
The 66-year-old Cheney is
expected to maintain his reg-
ular schedule despite his treat-
ments. He does have a signifi-
cant history of prior medical
problems including four heart
attacks, quadruple bypass
heart surgery, and two proce-
dures to clear clogged arteries
(angioplasty). He also has an
implantable cardioverter
defibrillator (ICD), a tiny

Gate champs join others in Ponte Vedra to train for Saturday's event


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Members of Team Gate, a
300-person contingent that
will compete in Saturday's
-Gate River Run, tuned up for
-the event by running with rac-
ing legends Bill Rodgers and
Todd Williams at the Ponte
Vedra Inn & Club Wednesday.
by running The duo ran
with 20 members at Epping
Forest Monday, another 20 at
the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club
Wednesday.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to be able to run
with these guys," said Ponte
Vedra Beach resident Colleen
Clarson, one of those who will
compete in the 30th edition of
the 15-kilometer U.S. national
championship.
Clarson was one of the first
two adults to finish the 3-mile
run Wednesday evening
through the neighborhoods
around the club. Three young-
sters won.
Williams has run in seven
River Runs, winning five, and
is the American record-holder
at 15K, or 9.3 miles. He set the
record of 42.22 in the 1995
race.
Rodgers, who won the inau-
gural River Run in 1978, is the
only American to win the New
York and Boston marathons
four times each.
He said he has won "maybe
20" marathons and still runs
competitively at age 59,
though the 1999 Boston
Marathon was his last
marathon. Rodgers, who turns
60 in December, ran a half
marathon Sunday.
"Tonight is really great," said
Clarson. "Gate is always look-
ing for ways to make the expe-
rience better for club members
who like to run and want to be
part of the Gate River Run. On
anniversary years, they look
for something fun for the
members."


She said the last time some-
thing comparable was done
was for the 25th anniversary.
"I do about 35 races a year all
over the U.S. up to the half-
marathon distance," said
Rodgers. "The Gate River Run
is 30 years old. It's a sign of the
growth of the sport."
Rodgers has run in "about 12
or 15 [River Runs]. Now I try to
compete in my age group.
There's a lot of very good older
runners."
Williams, 38, who lives in
Julington Creek in Northwest
St. Johns, said he logged
65,000 miles from 1983, when
he began running competitive-
ly, until January 2003, when
he retired from competition.
He has run in seven River Runs
and five marathons.
"What's great about the Gate
River Run is it's an American
championship. I think, at each
distance, there needs to be an
American championship desig-
nated for American runners.
Then everybody else can have
the other races. That's a reason
Gate has grown so much and is
recognized as one of the best
races in the world."
Williams wouldn't be sur-
prised to see his record broken
Saturday.
"Ryan Hall, the [24-year-old]
kid who graduated from
Stanford, is a pretty incredible
athlete. He ran 59.43 for the
half marathon in January,
breaking the American record,
and he actually tied my time
going through 15K. So if he
runs that type of effort on a
nice day [Saturday], I might be
the former record-holder next
year.
The River Run has 48
streakerss," 45 male and three
female runners who have com-
peted each year and will run
again Saturday, when more
than 13,000 runners are
expected, which would be a
record.

Nease teen: Fund-raising tournament in father's memory set for June 23


Continued from A-1
than two years later, on July 9,
2006, he passed away.
The Nease teen said he and
his father had spent time
together fishing,. talking about
cars and hanging out, so the
idea .of a fishing tournament
came to him in 2005, about a
month after his father started.
chemotherapy treatments.
Jordan 's collaborator on the
tournament is also his best
friend, Matt Hahnemann. The
two have "been best friends
since first grade, and
Hahnemann has been there
every step ot the way because
of Jordan's Dad and the strug-
gles he went through.
The two friends found cor-
porate sponsors to fund the
fishing tournament. The
friends share a partnership,
working as a team toward the
goal of early detection.
"We are in this together,"
said Hahnemann.
The $50 entry fee includes
lunch, and participants are
given literature about colon
cancer.
The winner of the competi-
tion must achieve a "Triple
Slam," young Carroll said with
--a big smile. Catching and
attaining the heaviest com-
-bined weight of red fish, speck-
led sea trout and flounder will
determine the winner.
Last year, the average team
:for the 23 entering boats con-


sisted of two men. It is a
requirement that someone on
a team must own a boat to par-
ticipate.
Carroll said the feeling he
had before and after the tour-
nament was amazing. Just
knowing that people are out
on the water and participating
in something that the teens are
so passionate about is enough
for them, he said.
He hopes he is helping to
change the lives of others for
the better, he said, adding that
he thinks his Dad "would be
proud."
The $15,000 raised in last
year's tournament was donat-
ed to the National Colorectal
Cancer Research Alliance, co-
founded by Katie Couric,
anchor and managing editor of
the "CBS Evening News with
Katie Couric."
In response to that large
donation, the Carroll family
was invited to meet with
Couric Feb. 3 when she visited
Wolfson Children's Hospital,
Jacksonville.
Hahnemann joined the
Carroll family in meeting with
the newswoman, who was very
excited about the upcoming
tournament, Carroll said.
After lung cancer, colon can-
cer is the most common cause
of cancer deaths for men and
women combined. The cure
rate is 90 percent if the cancer
is detected early, according to


Dr. Ron Brown, a former emer-
gency physician from Orlando,
Fla.
Screening tests can be used
to detect certain pre-cancerous
growths in the colon and rec-
tum, allowing them to be
removed before they ever
develop into cancer, according
to the Colorectal Cancer
Research Alliance's Web site.
"So get checked today is
what I tell most people because
it simply is the best solution,"
Carroll said.
He said his Dad's death
brought his family closer and
taught them how precious life
is.
"You should live each and
every day as if it is your last,"
he said. "My family is OK. We
turn to our faith and try to
look on the bright side of
things.
"I want to be just like my
dad and teach my kids the way
he taught me. . "responsibil-
ity, integrity and leadership,"
Carroll said.
His sister said Carroll's work
and passion for the cause has
shown him in a different light.
He is a person trying to
"change the world," she said.
"I can see how big his heart is."
Donations for the tourna-
ment can be sent to "Anglers
for a Cure," 226-5 Solana Road,
Suite 172, Ponte Vedra Beach,
32082.

promised to deliver a soulful
landscape woven from the fab-
ric of American's indigenous
musical art form.
"Our lineup reflects the rich-
ness and diversity of blues
styles," festival producer Sam
Veal said.
"We'll have artists steeped in
traditional Delta and Chicago
blues, acoustic finger-picking
Piedmont style and jumping
Texas Swing. Be prepared to
hear everything in between
and then some, with blues
fused with rock, country and
gospel."
Veal said "the incomparable"
Michael Burks will headline
the opening night of the three-
day event.
Other artists include
Grammy nominated artist Tab
Benoit, Eddie Kirkland, Cephas
& Wiggins, Shane Dwight, teen
prodigy Eric Steckel and most


original
players who
backed blues
legends Muddy
Waters and Howlin' Wolf.
"Two of the biggest names in
the blues have gone on to the
great big juke joint in the sky,"
Veal said.
"Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin
played guitar with Waters,
touring worldwide and record-
ing from 1973-1980 before
starting his own band. He won
the W.C. Handy award for gui-
tar in 2005, and was nominat-
ed again in 2006.
Willie "Big Eyes" Smith is


best
known
as Waters'
longtime drum-
mer. Prior to taking
up the drums, Smith was
known as a great blues har-
monica player. He played on
Bo Diddley's 1955 classic
"Diddy Wah Diddy."
Several outer festival activi-
ties will include a performance
by the legendary James Cotton
March 31 at Mojo's Barbeque
Kitchen and Blues Bar in
Jacksonville Beach.
Margolin will also head up a
blues jam each night after the
festival ends at the "home


away from the home of the
blues."
The blues kick off concert
features the Steve Miller Band
April 2 at The Florida Theatre
in downtown Jacksonville "and
it just keeps getting better from
there," Veal said '.
Other activities include the
Cycling the Blues Tour de
Vilano Dan Amico Memorial
Cancer Ride at 7:30 a.m.
Saturday, April 7.,
Amico, formerly a presenting
sponsor Sound Advice, died
last year from a rare form of
bile duct cancer. Proceeds from
the ride will benefit cancer
research.
Veal said the ride is now
expanded to a metric century
ride from City Hall to the
Vilano Beach bridge and back.
Amico was honored for the
first time last year for his con-
tributions to the festival with
an inaugural bike ride from the
SeaWalk Pavilion south to
Mickler's Landing and back.

Zodiac case


cracked by


cartoonist


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Drawing from his experi-
ence as a detail-oriented
political cartoonist for The
San Francisco Chronicle,
Robert Graysmith set about
to crack the infamous Zodiac
serial murderer case in the
1970s.
Even though the decades-
long investigation is official-
ly listed as unsolved,
Graysmith, a former nation-
ally syndicated cartoonist
and a seven-time Pulitzer
Prize nominee, believes he
knows who did it.
His 30 years of meticulous
research into the cold case
has resulted in two best-sell-
ing books. and is the basis for
"Zodiac," a new film by
director David Fincher
(Se7en, Panic Room).
What Graysmith may be
most proud of, however, is
that his true-crime books,
"Zodiac" (1986) and "Zodiac
Unmasked" (2002), are con-
sidered
the
bible for
the
many
and var-

investi- "
gators
who
have
worked
the case
in years
past.
"My
purpose in writing the [first]
boo kwas to catch Zodiac or
get so close that he was stale-
mated," Graysmith says in
"Zodiac Unmasked.".
"I think we succeeded. San
Francisco's Zodiac was effec-
tively checkmated."
The self-styled Zodiac killer
was tied to five Bay-area
murders, but is suspected of
many more.
Graysmith's behind-the-
scenes investigative work
helped flush out the case's
prime suspect, an intelligent
former Navy sailor who
detectives interviewed but
never charged in August
1971. After that interview,
the suspected killer, Arthur
Leigh Allen, never struck
again.
"With publication of his
story and all the clues, with
enhanced police scrutiny, we
had no more murders, no
more letters," Graysmith
writes in "Zodiac
Unmasked."
The search for the elusive
Zodiac killer, so named

Frisbee golf has a cult following


Have recently been enlight-
ened about a sport that
practically has a cult fol-
lowing, and everyone seems to
know about it except me...
A friend of mine invited me
to play frisbee golf, also
known as frolf (a word I find
as difficult and tongue-twist-
ing to pronounce as the word
"Worcestershire").
The game, for those of you
who are as clueless as me, is
basically the equivalent of
golf, except that instead of
using a ball and clubs, you
throw a frisbee hence frolf
aiming for a bizarre metal bas-
ket with chains.
As it was first explained to
me, I thought it sounded like
a piece of cake what could
possibly be so difficult about
throwing a frisbee at a basket?
Little did I know...
My friend was able to pull
up all of the frolf courses in
the greater Jacksonville area
through the Internet another
shock to me that these elusive
courses exist in the area and
in most cities. Sure enough,
there was a frolf course less
than 10 miles from where I
live.
We drove to the course,
which is more or less a park,

Zodiac: Movie tie-in


Cont. from B-1
because he signed taunting
letters to the police and the
press with a crossed circle,
was an obsession for
Graysmith and several Bay-
area investigators.
It led to the breakup of
Graysmith's second marriage
and derailed the career of
crime reporter Paul Avery,
played in the film by Robert
Downey Jr. Jake Gyllenhaal
portrays Graysmith.
One San Francisco detec-
tive in particular, Inspector
Dave Toschi, retired after 25
years of police work without
ever "reading the Zodiac
killer his rights," the book
says.
"When he appeared years
ago, there really hadn't been
anything like Zodiac before,"
said Graysmith, adding that
the suspect was one of the
early serial killers "to acquire
publicity."
Zodiac predated the so-
called Son of Sam killer in
New York, and was followed
by a host of mass murderers
in the decades to follow.
He operated in an era
before DNA testing and
before police task forces were

I spent a good part of last
Friday manning a Master
Gardener booth at the Home
and Patio Show, and the
majority of people who had
questions were newcomers.
They were confused about
everything we grow here,
especially the "ugly, crab-
grass-like lawn grass." Of
course, you and I know they
are referring to St. Augustine
grass. (My previous two
columns were on turf grasses-
and the ways different vari-
eties perform in our climate.)
Most of the questions had
to do with the usual, "What
can I grow here?" "How do I
take care of my lawn?" "How
do I attract butterflies and
hummingbirds?" "What veg-
etables can I grow?" and
"Why is the soil so sandy?"
Questions such as these
kept me occupied for the six
hours I was at the show,
which confirmed by belief
that new arrivals and new
homeowners should have
someone like myself and or a
class .to attend at the onset of
the growing season.
: That way, they would learn
about all these things before
they make assumptions, select
the wrong plant material,
have a problem and then
have to find help.
I don't teach those kind of
classes any more, but there
are numerous classes in the
area that are free or low cost.

And because a smoking
gun was never found, the
Zodiac was never brought to
justice, although the prime
suspect did spend a few years
in prison on an unrelated
charge.
Graysmith spent 10 years
writing the first book on
Zodiac, and another three
years boiling it down to a
taut 337 pages.
It's exhaustive reading.
Graysmith reconstructs the
case in infinite detail.
"Zodiac Unmasked," the
490-page sequel, reveals the
killer's true identity and pos-
sible motives.
Graysmith left the
Chronicle after many years
as an award-winning editori-
al page cartoonist and has
authored a number of true-
crime books, including
"Unabomber: A Desire to
Kill" (1998) and "Auto Focus:
The Murder of Bob Crane"
(1993), which also was made
into a film.
His latest work,
"Amerithax: The Hunt for

lished in 2004.

PARAMOUNT PICTURES
Norbit (Eddie Murphy) shows Kate (Thandie Newton), his childhood sweetheart, that nice guys sometimes finish first in the comedy
"Norbit." The film is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, some nudity and language.



Jackson electric in 'Black Snake Moan'


"Black Snake Moan" doesn't
begin to hide its trash origins;
in fact, it embraces them. But
the movie gets at something,
ahd it does so far more effec-
tively than recent, higher-
toned movies such as "Babel."
. The movie's premise at first
seems hopeless. Rae (Christina
Ricci) is an outrageous
nymphomaniac. Lazarus
SSamuel L.. lacksoni is a broken-
down blues singer whose "ife
has just left him. One day,
Lazarus finds Rae at the side of
a road near his home, beaten
and near death.
. He goes to town to get some
medicine for Rae and finds out
about her seedy reputation.
Out of nowhere, Lazarus
divines a cure for what ails Rae:
He chains Rae to the radiator
in his front room and, in
essence, says that she won't be.
released until her demons are
expunged.
That premise alone is going
to elicit at least two reactions
from the movie's potential
audience.
Feminists will carp about an
older man passive-aggressively
chaining up a woman because
he thinks it's for her own good.


STEVE
BAILEY
REVIEWER


Then there are the lascivious
men in the audience who will
lick their lips and say, "Ooh,
man! Christina Ricci in
bondage!"
But surprisingly, once the
movie gets past its sweaty,
Southern Gothic beginning,
the characters really start to
unveil some interesting layers.
Ricci takes what could have
been a simple, tacky role and
gives it some genuine depth.
Her take on Rae reminds me of
Jodie Foster in "The Accused" --
showing a woman's vulnerabili-
ty in the face of her supposed


worldliness and sexual vora-
ciousness.
And Jackson, after sleepwalk-
ing through "Snakes on a
Plane," once again twitches
with electricity. It's as if his
Bible-spouting hitman from
"Pulp Fiction" suddenly got a
mirror stuck in his face to show
him that he has a few of his
own demons to conquer.
'VThe'cast is unifobrmly excel"'-
leit'f.'1stiii Timberlake'i-, \ r)'
effective as Rae's erstwhile
lover. "Law & Order's" S. Epatha
Merkerson is a sunny presence
throughout, providing some
joy to counter Jackson's gravi-
tas. And John Cothran Jr. takes
a stereotypical role -- a very
preachy preacher -- and turns it
inside out.
The scene where his charac-
ter explains his concept of
heaven is a metaphor for all of
the movie's characters -- cut-
ting through the guff and get-
ting to what really matters.
At its center, "Black Snake
Moan" is about an old codger
condescending to save a young
girl's soul and realizing how
much cleansing his own soul
needs.
The movie might not be as


Fletcher High graduate
Mic Walker wrote and
sings a song titled "Mr.
Oblivion" in "Black
Snake Moan." The song
runs for 52 seconds in the
film.
Walker was born in
Jacksonville in 1970 and
graduated from ,fletcheF, n
1988. Walk & j5e'jr".s
under the naii Eldorado
Del Rey and is the lead
singer for the group
Eldorado and the Ruckus.
He lives in Memphis,
Tennessee.
While at the University
of Florida, Walker played in
the bands Fluffy Kitty and
Grit Kisser. He opened on
the Kiss and Aerosmith
tour with the band Porch

spirited as a homecoming
revival, but it certainly is a
blessed tonic to some preten-
tious movies of late.
"Black Snake Moan" is rated
R for scenes of drug use, vio-
lence, profanity, and nudity.

REVIEWER
It's time again to go over the
rainbow -- or at least, over the
Buckman Bridge, as the Orange
Park Mall hosts its annual
"Wizard of Oz Day" on Sat.,
Mar. 10, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
How much of an "Oz" buff
are you? Test yourself with
these 10 nuggets of golden -- er,
yellow-brick trivia.
1. "The Wizard of Oz" is said
to be the most "referenced"
movie of all time. The movie's
entry at the Internet Movie
Database lists hundreds of
other movies and TV shows
that have made references to or
jokes about it.
2. In the song "If I Were
King," the Cowardly Lion asks,
"What makes the Sphinx the
Seventh Wonder?" Well he
should ask, since the World's
Seventh Wonder is actually the
Sphinx's neighbor, the Great
Pyramid of Giza.
3. The Scarecrow didn't know
his trivia either; watch him gar-
ble up algebra's Pythagorean
Theorem near the movie's end.
Ray Bolger, who played the
Scarecrow, never got it right
during filming, so Fleming sim-
ply used Bolger's best take of it.
4. Jack Haley Jr., the son of
the actor who played the Tin
Man, later married Liza
Minnelli, the daughter of Judy
Garland (the movie's Dorothy).
5. MGM's first choice to play
The Wizard, W.C. Fields, was
nixed when Fields demanded
too much money. A year later,
Margaret Hamilton ("Oz's"
Wicked Witch) matched wits
with Fields in "My Little .
Chickadee."
6. How did Dorothy's house
fall from the sky? The sky was
painted on the floor. As the
camera rolled, unseen hands
moved a toy house from the
floor to mid-air. Then the film
ware versed. . '
7T. Watch'tlh' vcene where
Dorothy leaves her black-and-
white house -- appearing sec-
onds later, with no cutaway, in
the Technicolor land of Oz. In
pre-CGI 1939, Judy Garland
and her stand-in both had to
play Dorothy in the same shot.
8. The movie lost money
upon its initial release, even


though it was enormously pop-
ular. More kids than adults saw
the movie, and kids' tickets
were much cheaper. The movie
didn't go into profit until
MGM sold it to CBS for its first
network broadcast in 1956.
9. Judy Garland had it rough
all over. MGM thought she was
too chubby, so they fed her
appetite suppressants all
through filming, beginning her
lifelong drug addiction. Haley
and Lahr resented Garland
because they figured she'd try
to upstage them. When
Garland kept laughing during
her first scene with the Lion,
director Fleming subdued
Garland by slapping her face.
10. The day Judy Garland
died, a tornado touched down
in Kansas.
"The Wizard of Oz" will be
shown for free all weekend at
Orange Park Mall's AMC
Theatre. The movie and its sur-
rounding events are free. For

Art and Music showcase on Saturday


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Music and art will collide to
create a multidimensional
canvas of sight and sound
Saturday at two nightspots in
Jacksonville Beach.
Vestal's On The Rocks Art
and Music Showcase will fea-
ture the work of 87 artists in
multiple mediums ranging
from oils to pencil and pho-
tography to junk art.
Art will be displayed in nine
different rooms from 2 p.m.
to 2 a.m. at The Ocean Club
and The Atlantic at 300 1st
Street North.
Admission is $5 for ages 21
and up, $8 for under 21 from
2 a.m. to 10 p.m. only.
Organizer Joe Van Dyke said


he held two previous shows at
the Seawalk Hotel to give
local artists a place to show
their work.
The Jacksonville Beach Art
and Music Celebration and
last year's Jacksonville Beach
Dark Art celebration held on
Halloween both drew impres-
sive crowds, he said.
"The last two were awe-
some. This will be the best
yet," Van Dyke said. "It's got-
ten bigger and bigger each
time."
So big, he said, that he was
approached by the L.A. based
watch company Vestal about
becoming the event's title
sponsor after they participat-
ed in the Halloween show last
year.
The event also provides a


stage for local bands to reach
new audiences and establish
synergy between the audio
and visual fields.
Music will be provided by
10 local bands as well as DJs
spinning at both locations.
Christina Wagner, Shadow
Agency, Sensei, Kings of Hell,
A Slight Breeze, Aloke, The
Uprise, John Earl, Chinese
Horses and Devereaux.
Van Dyke, who is an artist
as well as a member of
Shadow Agency, said the
event is designed to open
doors for the artists and reach
new audiences.
"It gives artists the opportu-
nity to start displaying their
work that haven't been given
the chance," he said.


128 E. Fosyth Street,
Jacksonville. Tickets are $50,
$57.50 and $70. Call 355-2787

Otters, then and what they've become


It's no surprise to any of you
who regularly read this col-
umn, but otters are far and
away my favorite animal on
Earth. I spent decades in inter-
national conservation efforts
for the otters in the world and
put much of my energy into
generating interest for those
four rare otter species in Asia.
Well, these Asian otter conser-
vation efforts are still ongoing,
and my Asian colleagues have
even discovered a fifth species
that we had long thought to be
extinct.
My international otter work
as chairman of the IUCN
(World Conservation Union)
"Otter Specialist Group" for
years was my profession but
my attachment to the four
individual North American
river otters that I handraised
and kept for educational pur-
poses at Marine World in
California was my soul.
"Albion" and "Delta" were
two North American river
otters orphaned in California,
which I raised under a state
wildlife permit. "Bayou" and
"Cajun came from Louisiana, a

trapping state, and I brought
them back as infants under per-
mit to join them. I raised these
otters on bottles, and coddled
them, and found them secure
housing at Marine World-Africa
USA, where Bucko and I
worked. "My" otters lived out
their lives with us at the zoo.
As it turned out, these four ani-
mals imprinted on people, and
on me in particular. For the


dozen or more years of their
life, I was always "Mom" and
part of their clan.
I could always enter their
enclosures with impunity, and
harness them and take them
for education walks in the park
to explain about their role in
the natural world. Otters are
keystone animals, and indica-
tors of healthy freshwater wet-
lands. That was these otters'
purpose and one of my pri-
mary roles as Education
Director of Marine World to
inform the public about the
importance of wetlands, and
otters and otter-based ecosys-
tems.
I could leave for six months
to do my Ph.D. studies on
otters in Malaysia, but whenev-
er I returned, they heard my
voice, and ran to the fence, and
sniffed me, and dissolved into
happy "Hmm, hmm, hmm"
chuckles of greeting. In
moments I was back in their
cage, with my kids clambering
over me, demanding attention.
They loved me indeed their
entire life, and I loved them.
Unfortunately, when they


matured these imprinted otters
began to view other humans as
"otters from a different tribe."
When they began to get territo-
rial, and in the wild would
have scent-marked their habitat
with their scat (feces) chasing
other otters away, they tried to
"mark" their enclosure similar-
ly. Of course, the humans in
their skewed world could not
read these "go-away" signs like
other otters would.
The bloody battles between
my otters and all other people
began.
I could always walk them on
their leashes in front of the
public all around Marine World
but kept them biting distance
away from people. Bucko was
in charge of the sea lion train-
ers and otter keepers (otters are
too free-spirited to be happily
trained) and the otters were
penned in one area, while his
staff cleaned another without
directly contacting them.
We learned from the otters'
Great Escape when they
attacked the early-morning
landscape crew causing 30 or,
more deep crushing bite

Mystery Writer at
Bookmark
Award-winning Florida
mystery writer James W. Hall
will be at The Bookmark, 299
Atlantic Blvd., Atlantic
Beach, at 7 p.m. March 13 to
read from and sign copies of
his new book "Magic City."
Hall is the author of numer-
ous mysteries, including
"Rough Draft," "Forests of


wounds on the two weakest
landscapers the two unable to
climb trees to escape the angry
pack. Unbeknownst to the gar-
deners, the otters had scent-
marked the area with their
Keep Away signs, and the peo-
. ple failed to heed them. When
I got there to recapture them,
the four otters clambered
around me, happy at defending
their territory and chuckling
excitedly "Hmm, Hmm, Hmm,
Mom, we got them, we chased
them away for good!" I carried
them back to their pen, then
faced the music.
My otters were imprinted on
humans but wild North
American otters are not and
they pose no danger to people.
In natural environments, like
the remaining few freshwater
patches of the "Wild Heart of
Amnelia," otters are always a
pleasure to watch for those for-
tunate enough to see them.
Just a few weeks ago river
otters were seen mating in the
south end of the Egans Creek
Greenway. And most everyone
with a retention pond with any
habitat left sees the "Three
Stooges," a resident trio that
still manages to roam up and
down the island.
Otters, like bobcats and most
other large mammals, need to
travel widely to find mates and
seasonal food sources. The
remaining freshwater habitat of
the Greenway provides a
wildlife corridor for them, with
cover and fresh drinking water.
This Wild Heart of Amelia is
key to their survival on our
island.
As long as the saltwater
intrusion is stopped and fresh-
water habitat is restored along
the south end of the Greenway
just maybe it is possible to keep
otters in our world. At least, it's
worth a try.

zoologist and an international

Wine improves with
age. The older I get,
the better I like it.
Anonymous.
Years ago, 1 dated a wine
importer after I graduated
from college. I have few rec-
ollections of this particular
person, but it was then my
love of wine began. All wine
regions have their wonders -
from German and French
wines that were more com-
mon twenty years ago to
today's popular Australian
and prized American wines.
It seems that with each
passing year the interest in
wine grows. Today it's com-
mon to see wine refrigerators
sold at home centers and dis-
count grocers. And, more
people. are drinking wine,
too. According to a CBS
report last. year, of the people
who said they drink alcohol,
about 40% of those drank
wine, rising from a low of
27% in 1992 to 40% in 2005.
Fine wine sections can now
be found everywhere from
convenience stores to shop-
ping clubs. So it makes sense.
that wine would also find its
way into homes ranging
from a simple countertop
rack to full-blown wine cel-
lars whose storage can be
tracked with software specifi-
cally designed to manage a
wine inventory. If you have
even a simple interest in
wine, why not make that
interest a part of your home?
Wine basics
It helps to know that wine
is finicky. It doesn't like
light and it likes to be cool.
Even vibrations aren't good
for wine. So, a quiet, dark,


__^__L

cool location is best. Once
you find the spot that's away
from windows, the stove,
and stereo or televisions, you
have a good start on storing
your wine in the conditions
it likes and responds to best.
You should always store wine
on its side so that the cork
stays moist and maintains it
-seal.
Use what you have
A love of wine can be
translated into your d6cor
and lifestyle easily. Whether
you have a basement that
can be converted to a cellar,
a spare closet or cabinet, or
just a corner of the dining
room, there are many ways
to work wine into your home
that range in price from ten
dollars to tens of thousands
of dollars. If space is limited,
select a small cabinet area for
a nice wine rack to store your
favorite bottles. If you have
generous pantry space, con-
sider adding wine racks here.
Pantries are usually dark,
cool, and quiet, making them


a good choice for wine stor-
age.
If you have a butler's
pantry and no butler, why
not turn this area into a wine
bar? Remove shelves and a
cabinet door to add a wine n
cooler. If you can spare the
room, fit another cabinet W -
with racks. If you have a .
small closet, replace the door
with a wrought iron gate and4
install racks and you have an
instant cellar. Even an
unused formal dining room
can be converted into a
wine-tasting room with the
right decor elements.
If you're interested in cre-
ating a real wine cellar and ,,
are a serious collector of
wines, it's wise to hire an.
expert who can build the
storage racks and install the
proper cooling system
required to ensure the-wines
are kept at the optimal tem-
perature.
Today there are a number
of companies that will come
to your home and design a
cellar that includes a tasting
bar, barrels, refrigeration- .
and almost anything an .%'
oenophile heart could desire...
Adding a spot to your
home for the collection and
enjoyment of wine couldn't
be easier with all the acces- ,
series and d&cor items avail-
able today. Your next home
improvement might need to V
be one that will allow you to
savor life by the glass.

www.kathryn-weber.com or Photo submitted
email questions to This beautiful wine tasting room could be easily duplicated in a seldom-used dining room or other
Kathryn@kathryn-weber.com space in the home. Wine bars, cellars, and storage rooms are in hot demand as the interest in
wine grows.

CLEAN LAMPSHADES -
Lampshades actually attract
dust as the air around them is
dry and charged with static
from the electricity. Wipe
them off with a fabric soften-
er sheet, not a plain old cloth.
The fabric softener sheet gets
rid of the dust but also pre-
vents static electricity, which
will mean it will be longer
before you have to do this job
again. Regina K.
WAX JOB In order to keep
your refrigerator looking


clean and shiny, tr\ using ad
coat of car wax. Give it a rub-
down with car wax, both,
inside and out. This will help
keep it clean, making spills,
stains and fingerprints easier
to wipe off. Ken B.

MONEYSAVER Don't
spend a lot of money on a
food dehydrator when you
can dehydrate food in your
