An edition of The Beaches Leader



Tara Dodson, habitat conservation coordinator for St. Johns County Beach Operations, explains
how sea turtles nest in a presentation Wednesday at the Players Senior Community Center.

If sea turtles are barometer,

storm season to be a doozy

Although sea turtles have left only 10 nests
on St. Johns County beaches this year, a con-
servation official said this week, they have
left them in a protective area in dune veg-
Sea turtles this year are "removing vegeta-
tion" to dig and fill their nests, Tara Dodson,
habitat conservation coordinator, for St.
Johns County Beach Operations, said
Wednesday in Ponte Vedra Beach.
In past years, she said, the turtles typically
dug in the sand seaward of the vegetation.
-Perhaps, she suggested, they are instinc-
tively digging where the beach would offer
more protection from damaging storms,
pointing to an active storm season.
Although natural .phenomena threaten sea
turtles only one in 1,000 hatchlings sur-
vives to become an egg-bearing adult,
Dodson said there are many man-made

threats, she told an audience at, the Players
Senior Community Center on Landrum Lane.
Lights along the beachfront can disorient
the hatchlings as they traverse the beach
between the nest and the sea, she said.
The county's beach management plan reg-
ulates lighting along the beach, and the 42
miles of beachfront in St. Johns County are
patrolled five nights a week in search of vio-
lators, she said.
When notified, violators have always fixed
the problem, and no citations have been
issued, she said.
Also a threat to the tiny turtles are ruts
made by vehicles daytime beach driving is
allowed in some parts of the county or
horses, Dodson said.
. She explained that the county has a new
"rut-removal program," in which ruts hear a
nest will be flattened out when hatchlings


Hurricane awareness said to be 'high'

Although some Floridians in the past have
seemed complacent about the arrival of hurri-
cane season, that's not true any more, St. Johns
County's emergency manager said.,
"We have found that because of so much pre-
vious [hurricane] activity... that the awareness
level has been high," Ray Ashton, director of
Emergency Management for St. Johns County,
said this week.
He said that the 2004 season in which yard
debris: sat along roadsides in the county for
weeks and the devastation of Katrina in 2005
drew much attention to the storms.

People "are preparing themselves better than
in past years," said Ashton.
Preparation offers the best defense against any
storms that may threaten, experts say.
And although there's no way to tell whether
this season will turn out to be as predicted -
above normal in storm activity Ashton
reminds residents of one truism: "It only takes
one to ruin your day."
For the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season, which
runs to Nov. 30, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration predicts 13 to 17

Former Major Leaguer makes golf final

Rick Rhoden of Ponte Vedra Beach, 54 and
the oldest of 40 golfers vying for a $2 purse in
Nevada, was defeated Wednesday morning
by Tony Finau of Salt Lake City, 17 and one
of the youngest in the,field.
But then Rhoden, the former Major League
player who has dominated the Celebrity Golf
Tour, rebounded Wednesday afternoon,
shooting a 68 4-under-par in the 20-man
playoff to earn the second of two wild-card
berths in the 12-man final.
Finau, whose brother Gipper Finau, 16, lost
in the playoff, takes home $100,000 and a
spot in the next week's final at Wynn Las
Vegas Golf Course.'
As a winner in the consolation bracket,
Rhoden wins back his $50,000 entry fee and
a spot in the finals, which will be played June
7-8 and televised on Fox Sports June 9-10.
The $2 miillion prize in the Ultimate Game
at Wynn Las Vegas 36-hole, stroke-play play-
off is the largest in professional golf, topping
the $1.6 million prize that went to The
Players champion Phil Mickelson May 13 at
the TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach.
Rhoden, Golf Digest's No. 1 athlete-golfer,
since 2002 has frequently played with the
best 50-and-over players in the world on the
Champions Tour.
Born in and raised Boynton Beach, Fla.,
Rhoden attended Atlantic High School in
Delray Beach, where he was the star pitcher
for the school's baseball team.

MSD sidewalk

has chance of

surviving cuts

While St. Johns County budget planners prepare for a loss
of up to $47 million from anticipated state tax reform,
trustees of the Ponte Vedra Municipal Service District (MSD)
are hoping the $50,000 earmarked for sidewalks in the MSD
will stay put.
According to County Department of Budget and
Management analyst Dawn Cardenas, the MSD project
appears to be "safer" than other projects in the county.
"The project is a capital improvement project, but it is not
funded from the general fund, where the cuts will be made,"
Cardenas said in a telephone interview Thursday. "The proj-
ect is not coming out of [property] tax money, so it is a little
more secure."
Cardenas said the county plans to use impact fees help to
pay for the sidewalk along part of Ponte Vedra Boulevard. The
county has budgeted $50,000 for the sidewalks, she said.
Cardenas said that the county will make its decision on
budget cuts after the Florida Legislature meets in 'special ses-
sion June 12 to June 22 in Tallahassee.
The county has proposed a budget of $713 million for fis-
cal 2008, which begins Oct. 1. That is $20 million less than
the current budget, Which ends Sept. 30. Based on state fund-
ing cuts projected at about $47 million, the county would
still need to come up with $17 million in cuts. ,
Cardenas said the county could take the cuts from capital
improvement projects, which could make the most impact,
the general fund or operating costs in a effort to balance the
MSD trustee Al Hollon said that eliminating sidewalks to
trim the county's budget would be a detriment to the neigh-
"I am aware of the impact the budget will have on local
government," Hollon said. "As far as any particular projects
that could be affected, I am not aware of them."
Hollon said the sidewalk project has been ongoing for a
number of years within the MSD. Ifthe county were to cut
.the project from the budget, there may be a safety issue
involved, he said.
"The demographics in the MNSD have changed in the 11
years I have lived here," explained Hollon. "There are more
families with young mothers who push babies [in strollers].
Out of necessity, they push them in the street. It would be a
shame if the county got rid of the project."
Hollon said the MSD has helped its residents fund the proj-
ects that have already been completed and the ones still
under construction.
District 4 Commissioner Tom Manuel said he does notsee
anticipate the sidewalk funds yill be cut.
"I don't think it will fall. by the wayside," said Manuel In a
telephone Interview Wednesday.

The instrument used is a
piece of wood and some fenc-
ing dragged across the sand,
she said.
Sea walls, commercial fish-
ing, trash dumped in interna-
tional waters and recreational
activities such as beach vol-
leyball also are on the list of
man-made threats to sea tur-
tles, Dodson said.
The nesting season runs
May 1 to Oct. 31. Last year,
sea turtles laid 315 nests on St.
Johns County beaches. In
2005, the number was 239,
and in 2004, it was 151.
There were 366 nests in
2003, 322 in '02, 280 in '01
and 306 in 2000, she said.
"The sad thing about my
job is that I see more dead
ones [sea turtles] than alive
ones," Dodson said.

The sidewalk in question
would be built in the 800, 900
and 1000 blocks of Ponte Vedra
Boulevard, where about 26
neighbors agreed to pay for
part of the project.
The MSD last year agreed to
add $5,000 to encourage the
county to help with funding.
Manuel cautioned that it
won't be until after the close of
the special -session, that com-
missioners will look at the
budget and assess what needs
to be done to make up for the
shortfalls. Everything then
could be fair game, he said.
"Nothing moves fast in the
public sector," Manuel said.
"When we find out what
Tallahassee has to say, then we
will have to look at the budg-

Because the time is moving
closer to the actual date of the
session, Manuel believes the
county will be affected more in
2009 than in 2008.
"I don't see whatever they
can do will impact the upcom-
ing fiscal year," said Manuel.
"It could be two years out
before anything is affected.
"There is going to be a lot of
disappointed electorate. You
hear of these massive tax cuts.
Tallahassee has created a great
expectation with tax reform,"
he added.
The sidewalk along Ponte
Vedra Boulevard north of
Corona Road was paid for years
ago by property owners with
the help of MSD funds.

Tara Dodson points to the image of a sea turtle track Wednesday at the Players Senior
Community Center, where she talked about the reptiles and their challenges.

St. Johns County Beach Operations reminds beachgoers to follow these guidelines:
Keep sea turtles in the dark by reducing lights visible from the beach.
Do not disturb or handle sea turtles, their eggs or nests.
Stay off the dunes, do not disturb beach vegetation, and remain out of the conservation zone 15 feet seaward of per-
manent vegetation (30 feet at Porpoise Point).
Reduce litter and marine debris by disposing of trash properly and picking up any plastic and fishing line you see.
Do not release balloons into the sky, as they can cause serious harm to sea turtles.
Fill any holes from sand castles and vehicles stuck in the sand.
For more information, contact Tara Dodson at 209.0336.

Residents of St. Jo'hiis
County were cautioned last
year that evacuation from the
county could take as long as
62 hours.
That information was based
on a 2005 study, and it showed
that emergency, management
officials would need to order
evacuations more than 24
hours before a storm was pre-
dicted to hit.
A more advanced, three-year
study is being conducted,
which is expected to give more
details on storm surges and
evacuation times, according to
Brian Teeple of the Northeast
Regional Planning Council.
Lorin Mock, director of
Duval County Emergency
Management, said the new
study will be a more "realistic"
and "valid assessment" of hur-

ricane evacuation zones than
the orne done in 2005.

With so much growth over
the past several years in St.
Johns County, Jacksonville
and the Beaches, population
has increased, causing more
people to be on the roads.
Also, there is more traffic
coming from south Florida
cities, which also affects traf-
fic, according to officials.
"It's not only us growing, its

all those other areas growing,"
Mock said, adding that there is
significant impact from traffic
from other areas moving up
the coast.

Tax holiday period begins today

Some Beaches hardware
stores are stocking up on hurri-
cane supplies in anticipation of
Florida's sales tax free holiday
in June.
Some hurricane supplies will
be tax free for consumers from
June 1 through June 12, with
some restrictions according to
the Florida Department of
Revenue's Web site.
Proctor Ace Hardware at the
Beach is prepping for the tax
free holiday by ordering some
extra supplies, such as fuel for
campfire grills, said Assistant
Manager Jim DiPietro.
"We're stocking up and we're
ready," he said.
The store will most likely
have a display area with hurri-
cane supplies grouped so that
customers can easily locate
them, he said.
The following items are
specifically identified as eligi-
ble .for this special sales tax
holiday for hurricane pre-

The Leader's Opinion

Cooperation has

not worked for

the Beaches

With property tax reform on the horizon, Duval
County is casting around for places to cut expenditures.
Police, parks, roads, pensions and more are all on the
chopping block.
It has been suggested by the county that the interlocal
agreement which governs the fiscal relationship of the
Beach cities and the county could also be due review.
The county attorney has advised Mayor John Peyton's
staff that the current pact, which has no expiration date
or stipulated review, is a settlement in perpetuity and that
may not be legally defensible. To its credit, the mayor's
office subsequently said this administration will not test
the matter legally.
The Beaches represents a sizable tax base for the county
and it's obvious why the county might like to collect more
here while spending less. It has a tradition of doing just
The Beaches have long been a cash cow for the county,
with little to show for it except that which has been wres-
tled through litigation.
If the county seeks to redo the interlocal pact, the Beach
cities should not be satisfied simply defending the status
quo. The better course. is to seize the offensive and seek a
better deal for the Beaches by litigation if necessary.
Consider that half of the county's general fund goes to
public safety. The Beaches, each with their own municipal
police departments, get little benefit from the huge expen-
diture. Some sheriffs office help on occasion, jail space
(albeit not enough) and some fire service are all we get
from what the county spends half its funds on.
It has been suggested that instead of redoing the inter-
local pact, the Beaches and the cities could cooperatively
look at reducing county expenses.
After more than three decades of litigation and feuding
over double taxation concerns, the Beaches would be ill
served to simply adopt a smile and bow to the county.
Cooperation has never worked for the Beaches before, so
it is interesting that the county now thinks it should work
for the county.
The county has ceded nothing to the Beaches except
under the duress of litigation. To date there is no reason
for the Beaches to think a new day has dawned and our
adversaries are now allies looking out for our best inter-
The independence of the Beaches municipalities rests
on our fiscal soundness and that must not. be bartered
away because the county says it needs help.

Letters to the editor:

abstinence programs help

To the editor:
I am sad to see that there are
bills being proposed to stop
funding of sexual abstinence
programs. I think it is sad
enough that bills have been
proposed that would subject
all children in Florida public
schools to "Reproductive
Health Services and Family
Planning. Education", which
they label as a comprehensive
sex education program. These
programs focus on teaching
our children on the use of con-
doms and basically cram "safe
sex" education into their agen-
da. They present abortion as a
solution to pregnancy. They
present gay behavior as a natu-
ral life style. They teach our
children that fornication is
acceptable, encourage our kids
to be promiscuous, experiment
with gay sexual behavior, and
finally teach them that termi-
nating the life of an unborn
child is an option if a pregnan-
cy is unplanned.

Price is Right has working formula

Held captive in a waiting
room the other day, I
was forced to watch
whatever was playing on the
TV perched high in the corner
with a volume that no one
could ignore. Daytime TV
skims the bottom as a form of
entertainment, but there I
was, mesmerized by Bob
Barker and The Price is Right.
This show is one of the
social cuiio'itite of out time.
I. xcniemetbi ta, ing hu'ime sick,
from elementary school, lay-
ing in my mother's bed, and
try watching Bob and the
ate Pricettes get excited about
our their guests winning the
showcase. My grade school
nd years were long before cable
od, or remote controls, so the
all pickings were slim, and I was
>le. probably too sick to get up
em and change the channel.
the I read somewhere that this
of is Bob's 35th year hosting this
OS show. That means that this
ro- show has aired around 10,000
ues times. I think it averages
ics about eight guests per show,
.ss. or 80,000 people, yet I have
tly never met a person who has
of been on the show, to the
ru- show, or knows someone who
in has. I've never even known
ere someone brave enough to
ct. admit they watch it. And
ent someone certainly must, since
ul- no show stays on the air with-
en out ratings. Some may say
that the network doesn't have
the heart to tell Bob that his
D. show is a dinosaur and needs
ch to have the plug pulled. But
believe me when I say it, even
if it meant that Mr. Barker
wouldn't eat another meal

and would have to live on the
streets, if ratings were down,
he would be outta there so
fast that his white hair would

my dismay that I know exact-

headliner news item.
And why isn't there a New

Resident advises

others to check

telephone bills

To the editor:
Please advise your readers
about bogus charges that
might show up on their
monthly bills. When I
checked my May 11th bill I
found a mystery charge under
a heading "Other
Companies." It was for a
"Directory Assistance Fee"
plus associated Federal, State,
and Local fees and taxes, a
total of $7.57. Since my
phone bill is paid by bank
draft, this payment had
already been made.
When I called the 800 num-
ber provided for billing ques-
tions, I was told it was a
charge for directory assistance
requested from our phone.

My wife and I never make
directory assistance calls, and
I knew it was a fake charge.
When I told the operator this
she readily agreed to send a
refund check.
Since nine out of ten people
never bother to check details
on their phone bills, this
company is probably bilking a
lot of telephone customers for
service they never received.
Moreover, the $7.57 charge
for one operator assistance
call is outrageous! Have your
readers check their phone

convalescing and being spoon
fed tapioca by someone in a
sterile white uniform? Hard
to imagine.
As I watched that day, I
wondered how people pre-
pare for that show. Do they
wander through aisles of
stores, memorizing prices of
items? It made me remember
Sa roommate and her fiance
named "luster s~'1o 'iiainfd

Game. I'm not kidding about
this. She would feed him
endless hypothetical ques-
tions then judge and critique
his answers. The only reason
they didn't drive me out of
my mind was because of their
lovability and absolutely gen-
uine hope of being the grand
prize winning newlyweds one
day. I've since lost track of
them but hope they made it.
Game shows are almost a
thing of the past; mainly, I
think, because of our morbid
curiosity for the dysfunction
and deviant behavior of socie-
ty being paraded on the "talk"
shows of today. So if it
means that children at home
alone with a remote control
in their hand have less chance
of watching daytime TV trash
like this, then I hope they
have many Bob Barker look-a-
likes waiting in the wings to
ask what's his name to call

Bees do

a good

job for

our food


he U.S. food supply
could be badly belted
by shortages of a bug,
specifically the honeybee.
The problem reportedly sur-
faced in Florida some
months ago when beekeep-
ers stated that entire hives
were abandoned by adult
They left behind food and
bee larvae, which are the
young that develop inside
the hive.
According to the Star-
Tribune web site in
Minnesota, the problem has
spread. Said the site on April
24: "Honeybees have myste-
riously gone missing from
their hives all over the coun-
try." Agricultural experts are
stumped about the cause of
the losses.
They've speculated that
possibly the situation stems
from pathogens (germs),
deadly mites, lack of genetic
diversity in the bees, wide-
spread pesticide use, or
urban sprawl.
But it might not be the
f'1 i t,.s Q, thlie., ,phe factors
Apparently, no one has
yet suggested global warm-
ing as the reason. It seems
that sinister force has been
blamed for every problem
but dandruff. Stay tuned.
The seriousness of the sit-
uation results from the fact
that a major function of the
bees is pollination of plants
and trees that produce com-
mercial crops such, as
apples, blueberries,
almonds, cranberries, mel-
ons and other food.
Some beekeepers have
quoted hive population
decreases of 80 percent to
90 percent.
There's a major effort
under way by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
to identify the reason.
I wonder if the little
buzzers simply got tired of
their daily routine, going
from blossom to blossom
endlessly without ever get-
t, ing paid. BORING!!!
Perhaps they heard about
comedian Jerry Seinfeld at
the Cannes Film Festival
promoting his upcoming
animated flick "Bee Movie."
Wearing a bumblebee suit,
he jumped off a hotel roof,
aided by a cord, and spec-
tacularly flew down to the
beach, arms and legs flail-
In the film, with his
voice, he plays "...an ambi-
tious young bee who
dreams of life beyond the
hive" (per CNN.com).
Maybe the missing real bees
had a similar motivation.
If the scientific communi-
ty learns why the honey-
bees checked out, I hope
someone has the good sense
to use the info in ridding us
of insect pests, such as flies,
roaches, ants, and mosqui-
We long-suffering
Floridians have been
bugged long enough.
Bees are better and can
even be beneficially hurtful.
Consider the talkative
woman who squashed one
at a downstate picnic I
While yackety-yakking,
she absentmindedly
mopped her overactive
mouth with the napkin
containing the dead bee,
which then stung her.
Because of her swollen lip,
others could converse. She
was bee-calmed.

PGA interns begin
Forty college and university
students are in Ponte Vedra
Beach this week for orienta-
tion to the PGA Tour Diversity
Intern Program.
The 40 students,, selected
from a record 900 applicants,
will do their internships at
various tournament sites
around the country, although
most will work at PGA Tour
headquarters in Ponte Vedra.
In addition to the
University of Florida and
Florida State, the interns come
from institutions such as
Wharton School of the
University of Pennsylvania,
University of Notre Dame,
California State University,
Hampton University,
Morehouse College and
Louisiana State University.
Most internships last 10 to
12 weeks. Since the program
began in 1992, 420 interns
have been accepted into the
program. Of those, about 20
percent have gone into full-
time employment within the
golf and sports industry.

Art meets high tech
"Virtual Van Gogh," an
original, three-dimensional
painting by a Ponte Vedra

sophisticated programming,
was to be donated May 31 to
Flagler College in St.
The artwork is the first done
by Jason Green, chief techni-
cal officer of Medical
Development International
(MDI) of Ponte Vedra. It took
more than 156 hours to ren-
der the painting, whose reso-
lution is 7500 x 5000 pixels.

Ten churches join for

Habitat's Apostles Build

Habitat for Humanity's
Apostles Build program contin-
ues with a group of ten church-
es joining efforts for Apostles
Build IV.
Groundbreaking was held on
April 28 for the Apostles Build
Habitat house to be completed
for use by a Beaches family in
need of housing.
"Each church is committed
to contributing $3,400 toward
the, cost of materials and 80
hours of volunteer labor to con-
sruct the house," according to a
press release from St. Paul's by
the Sea Episcopal Church.
Other churches working in

next work day is scheduled for
June 16 and June 23.
"The numbers do not truly
represent what is being accom-
plished," said Corky Borders, a
volunteer from St. Paul's by the
"First and most important is
the carrying out of God's will to
care for those in need. Second is
the support being given to our
local Habitat for Humanity
affiliate. Thirdly the church and
school have found a common
ground where they can come
together for a very good cause."

The most


things in

sports . .

T ime once again for the
annual list of the most
useless things in sports.
Some items seem to make"
the list every year. The WNBA,
for example. Or drug testing
at the Tour de France (every-
one's guilty).
Let's start with the partial
basketball score. You know,
those updates that crawl
across the bottom of the
screen while you're intention-
ally not watching an NBA
game. A baseball, hockey or
football score from any point
in the game has a chance of
ending up as the final out-
come. There's a possibility no
more runs, touchdowns or
goals will be scored.
But a 42-39 second-quarter
hoops tally isn't going to hold
up. Partial basketball scores?
The Olympic Games pro-
vide us with uselessness on a
truly international scale. Take
rhythmic gymnastics. That's
the competition in which ath-
letes roll around on mats with
balls, clubs, hoops or ribbons.
It's supposed to combine ele- "
ments of ballet. gymnastics
and theater.
Pure gymnastics already
exists as an Olympic sport, so
what's with the props? Is
Carrot Top in town?
Gymnasts were getting
along just fine flinging them-
selves off vaults, pommel .
horses, rings, uneven bars and
balance beams. Hula hoops
and streamers are not neces-
Kind of like the Clamato
genius who after sipping a
cup of tomato juice declared,
"Not bad, but it needs fish."
Track and field also has
plenty of useless events. For
example, the triple jump has
to go. It's the same as the long
jump but with a little hop in
the middle. Too much dupli-
cation of effort, so bid it adieu.
Race walking should be on
the endangered list. It's that
heel-toe event that resembles
a pack of people with sore feet
trying to make it across hot
coals to the bathroom before
it's too late.
Not quite running, not real-
ly walking, competitors look
just plain goofy. This event is
said to be really popular in
Europe which is all the more
reason it should be banned
Luge also has to go. I know,
I know, it makes for great
headlines like, "Born to luge,"
or "I'm a luger, baby." But
really it's just a guy or a gal
lying on a sled and letting
gravity take over.
It's probably fun, and a good
use of ice and snow during the
winter, but a sport? Award a
posthumous gold medal to Sir
Isaac Newton for "discovering"
gravity, but luge is out.
The decathlon, which tests
competitors in 10 different -
events is fine. The modern
pentathlon, which is neither
modern nor relevant, is not.
Decathletes participate in
10 separate track and field
events, and while the tasks are
diverse, they all fall under the
umbrella of either "track" or
Pentathletes engage in shoot-
ing, fencing, riding horses,
swimming and running. Throw
in arts and crafts and you've
got summer camp, not an
Olympic event. Get rid of it.
Finally, there is synchro-
nized diving. That's when two
competitors leap from the
same platform and do the
same dive simultaneously.

Unless they're conjoined
twins, this is really a useless

When Jacksonville Beach native
Carson Andrew sat out his senior year
of high school baseball, he was just
anxious to get back on the mound.
Now having returned to the game,
the Jacksonville University freshman
right-hander finds himself in the first
round of the NCAA Regional
Tournament against the University of
North Carolina.
Andrew, who attended Episcopal
High School, missed his senior year
while undergoing Tommy John surgery,
a ligament-replacement procedure
named after the former Major League
pitcher, to repair his throwing arm. The
procedure consists of replacing a liga-
ment in the medial elbow is with a lig-
ament that is taken from elsewhere in
the body, such as the forearm, ham-
string or foot.
Unusually young for the surgery, it
kept Andrew out for his senior year
(Episcopal won the 3A state champi-
onship) and into rehab before starting
his stint with the Dolphins.
"I was very optimistic about getting
back from the surgery," Andrew said.
"There is a good success rate for the
surgery, so I wasn't worried about com-
ing back."


On the heels of their first-ever state champi-
onship, five Nease High soccer players have
been named to the All-State soccer team for
The Panthers won the Class 4A title Feb. 17
with a 1-0 victory over Fernandina Beach at
Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale. It was the
first boys state crown in Nease soccer history
and capped a season that saw first-year head
coach Ken Kirsch install a defense-oriented sys-
tem that paid huge dividends.

"It feels pretty Dolphins
good now," Andrew
said. "It took a while to get my

long, but it's feeling pretty good now."
A standout at Episcopal, where he
was a four-year starter, Andrew missed
a majority of his senior season with the
injury, including an invitation to the

West Coast Area Code Game, a show-
case for the top high school players.in
the country, which he also missed

victory for Nease.
Ringeisen, who played sweeper, was singled
out for praise by Kirsch for his leadership
throughout the 2006-7 campaign and especially
in the Class 4A title game.
"As a sweeper, you see evenrthing. As a goal-
keeper, you see everything. So it was just a ques-
tion of Kyle Ringeisen and Austin [Davis] mak-
ing sure every man was marked and being struc-
turally sound," the coach said amid the jubila-
tion of last February's victory.
Corning scored Nease's first goal in the
Panthers' huge upset of then-undefeated Merritt
Island in the state semifinals. The Mustangs car-
ried a 28-0-0 record into that match but were

Currently Andrew has started nine
games for the Dolphins, putting
together a 3.61 ERA and a 3-2 record
while striking out 32 batters so far this
season. He is also in the midst of a 12-
inning scoreless streak.
Andrew tossed seven of those
shutout innings against Gardner-Webb
University in the A-Sun Tournament -
a performance that earned the fresh-
man a spot on the All-Tournament
Team that the Dolphins eventually
won 4-0 to advance. Andrew pitched
five shutout innings in the regular-sea-

Now Andrew finds himself and his
team in the NCAA Regionals where
they will face North Carolina tonight.
"We knew we had to win to make it
in here and we fought for it," Andrew
said regarding the tournament.entry.
"This team put it all together."
This is the second consecutive year
that JU has entered the Regionals and
just the 12th time in history.
Although Andrew and the Dolphins
expect to win, he doesn't expect to log
any innings on the mound today,
although it's still a possibility.
"We have one of our best, Matt

he's on the hill, we always expect to

Will runners support

two area marathons?

It won't be very much longer
until Jacksonville can lay
claim to being one of a
select few cities that hosts two
In addition to the venerable
Jacksonville Marathon (now
known as the Jacksonville Bank
Marathon) due to be run on
December 16th, the National
Breast Cancer Marathon is set
for its debut on February 17,
The February race is subtitled
Run 26.2 With Donna. The
Donna in question is, of course,
the locally famous television
news anchor Donna Hicken, a
resident of Atlantic Beach.
Hicken has been an active
runner for many years; she is
also a breast cancer survivor.
A few years ago she founded
the Donna Hicken Foundation,
whose purpose is to provide
financial aid to women afflict-
ed with the disease. It was only
natural that she would one day
put her love for the marathon
and her foundation together
for the formation of the
National Beast Cancer
You could hardly have
missed the event's big-time
advertising. A full-page ad has
adorned the back cover of
Running Times magazine for
the last few months and
Hicken mentions it frequently
on the news.
The race has a vast array of
sponsors, many of which have
been procured through the
Mayo Clinic, an important
partner in the event.
It also has the involvement
of Running Guru Jeff Galloway.
Galloway's well-known
walk/jog marathon program
has turned many a sedentary
slug into a marathon partici-
pant. Having him along for the
ride is certainly a plus and
should mean an onslaught of
eager attendees.
"Our advertising has been a
three-pronged attack," said race
official John TenBroeck. "First
we wanted people to just know
that was going to be.
"Second, is to get our train-
ing programs for the events up


and running. Third, is to get
people to sign up."
Obviously the first part has
been dealt with and they have
come too far to turn around
now. We know that there will
be a marathon starting and fin-
ishing near the Mayo Clinic on
San Pablo Road.
Most of the course will be in
the beaches area and there will
also be an accompanying half-
marathon. The races will be as
big and as high profile as they
can make them and 100 per-
cent of the entry fees will go to
breast cancer research via the
Mayo Clinic or to patient care
through the Donna Hicken
If this first-time, first-rate
event doesn't make a sizeable
splash it certainly won't be
from lack of trying.
The training part kicks off on
Saturday, June 2nd.
TenBroeck said: "Phase one
of the training is called
'Getting Started For Beginners.'
It will be an easy few weeks so
they can get their feet wet and
see if they want to commit to
our real 14-week marathon
training course that begins on
July 28th."
He continued: "We will do
the same thing for beginning
half-marathoners; a 'Getting
Started' course on September
8th and a full course beginning
November 3rd.
"All of the training runs will
start at the UNF track at 7 a.m.
Anyone can come out; we'd.

love to see some more new
people and anyone is welcome
to come out this Saturday and
join in," he said.
For more information about
the training courses log onto

out the Galloway Method at
More than 200 people have
already signed up for the
marathon that has a seven-
hour time limit.
But can Jacksonville support
two marathons? Doug Alred,
race director of the Jacksonville
Bank Marathon, seems a little
concerned that the new race
might initially hurt the atten-
dance of his older, more estab-
lished event.
"A lot of people will proba-
bly want to run the new race,"
Aired said. "Then again, they
could help boost the numbers
of our half-marathon.
"Since our race is just two
months ahead of theirs, people
might want to use our half-
marathon as a training run for

Fire ants remain a problem for

humans and animals in Florida

Anyone who takes part in
an outdoor activity is
aware of the problems
caused by fire ants. Golfers,
hunters and kids in the park
are all potential victims of the
ant's painful sting.
But many however, know
very little about the ant itself
and, after doing my own
research, I found it quite inter-
Florida's fire ants were first
brought to this country in
1930 when they were acciden-
tally imported with cargo
from South America into
Mobile, Ala. They migrated
into Florida in the 1940s.
The ants are unable to sur-
vive in frigid temperatures,
and therefore are only found
in southern states. They have
also recently made their way
into Australia and are becom-
ing a problem there.
The ants live in domed
mounds, which can measure
18 inches high and three feet
wide, and may contain as
many as a half million ants.
The queen, within an estab-
lished colony, can lay up to
2,000 eggs per day, doing so
for about seven years until she
Not just a problem for
humans, fire ants can cause
death in many animals,
including newborn alligators,
tortoises and livestock. The
ant first latches on by a pow-
erful bite and then injects its
In humans, this painful
sting creates a hypersensitivity
reaction, causing itching,
burning, redness and the
development of a painful blis-
ter some days after the bite.
Some may even suffer ana-
phylactic reactions resulting in
swelling, labored breathing,
paralysis and death.
According to the University
of Florida's Agricultural
Department, there is no way
to completely eradicate the
fire ant, especially due to its
rapid reproductive cycle.
Populations are controlled
most commonly with insecti-


* I I

Other solutions such as
boric acid can be used.
Another method involves
slowly pouring a recommend-
ed three gallons of boiling
water into the mound.
However, to me this method
sounds risky. You could acci-
dentally burn yourself with
the water or find the ants run-
ning up your legs while you
are pouring the water. I'll stick
with the insecticide. -
Fire ants are able to flourish

because, there is no natural
enemy present in our area. In
order to combat this, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture is
working to introduce the ant's
natural killer, the decapitating
phorid fly, into the local envi-
Harmless to humans and
about the size of a sand gnat,
the fly works like something
out of a horror movie. The
female flies overhead, swoops
down and in less than a sec-
ond, injects an egg into the
body of the fire ant.
When the little critter is
born, the baby maggot crawls
from the fire ant's belly into
its head and eats the brain,
and the fly completes its
development. The head of the
fire ant falls off after about 10
days and the developed fly
crawls out to search for more
That sounds like a great pro-
gram, as long as the phorid
flies don't someday set their
sites on us humans. I can only
imagine a population of peo-
ple walking around with their
heads falling off. Could make
for a good column, though.

part of the theme. Alexandra Papageorge gets a high 5 (above)
from instructor Joey Mainville. Griffin Golde gives a kick on
demand (right), and the entire class (below right) practices kick-
ing and balancing. At bottom left, Emma Gatti gets ready for her
turn at attacking the blue cushion. The class, as well as the

The northern section of the
new Beach Boulevard Bridge
is scheduled to be completed
at the end of 2007 and will
operate as a two-lane span
until the southern span is
open in, the summer of 2009.
But the widening of Beach
Boulevard from San Pablo
Road 'to Penman Road will
not be finished by the time
the first fixed span of the new
bridge is open, according to
Jeff Sheffield, director of plan-
ning with the Metropolitan
Planning Organization.
Wendy Morrow at JTA
Wednesday said the bridge
and the widening will all be
"wrapped up by the summer
of 2009."
"The north span will open
before the south span but it
will still be the same width it
is now," she said. "Traffic will
just be shifted while they tear
the old one down."
Mike Goldman, director of
external affairs at the Florida
Department of
Transportation, said the por-
tion of Beach Boulevard from
the FCCJ South Campus to
Hodges will be completed in
early 2008.
"As of May 9, we are 83 per-
cent finished," Goldman said
Wednesday. "We are actually
ahead of schedule. Going
from four to six lanes, there is
a lot of utility work."

n all parts of the United
States, Memorial Day
weekend means the
beginning of summer, pic-
nics galore, family reunions,
vacations, swimming and air
conditioning. .
In Florida, it also means
the beginning of hurricane
season, which we Floridians
do not take lightly.
In my neighborhood I
have seen many companies
removing dead or dangerous
tree limbs that could
become objects of terror in
high winds.
If you can afford the serv-
ices of a "certified arborist,"
that would be great, espe-
cially if you have a prize
tree or one that promises to
become a prize tree. The
Yellow Pages lists persons
who have earned this dis-
If you have recently plant-
ed some trees or large
shrubs, keep in mind that
their root systems are not
yet widely spread out -
established so they can
topple pretty easily in high
Stake them now and baby
them in the hope that you
have made as many inroads
as possible to get their roots
established and anchored.
If you are in doubt about


how to stake them, call 387-
8850 and ask for a master
gardener or go online.
Newly planted palm trees
need a special form of stak-
ing, and they are very prone
to toppling simply because
their rootballs are so tight
and are about the size of a
large basketball.
As far as other chores to
do before the hurricanes or
just to get ahead of the
heat, or both, fertilization of
the St. Augustine grass is
usually completed by the
middle of June.
If you want more growth,
which means more mowing
and possibly more insect
and disease problems, fertil-

ize with a slow-release fertil-
izer where at least 30 per-
cent of the nitrogen is in
slow-release form. The bag
will tell you this.
If you want to just green
up the lawn, apply iron sul-
fate at a rate of 2 ounces per
3 to 5 gallons of water
sprayed onto the grass.
Do this either in the early
morning or very late after-
noon to avoid sun scald.
Don't get this on your side-
walks or driveways as it may
discolor them.
You really might want to
rethink the lawn fertiliza-
tion again, simply because
we might have more water
restrictions placed on us
unless we get sufficient rain.
If you fertilize and can
water only once a week,
you'll be struggling to keep
your lawn healthy just
because of resulting new
In my opinion, if your
lawn is in good shape now,
and you are watering twice a
week and doing so deeply, I
think you could let the fer-
tilizing go this time.
The worst is that the lawn
might yellow out a bit, but
that's not disastrous. I

Weekend The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader June 1, 2007


Earl Brooks (Kevin Costner) faults his wicked alter ego Marshall (William Hurt) for his pathological compulsion to kill in the sus-
pense thriller "Mr. Brooks."

'Bug' proves Judd's acting career has unraveled

(WARNING: Major spoil-
ers abound in this review.)
If you want to be in on
bad-cinema history, drop
whatever you are doing
and go see "Bug." It is the
greatest movie Ed Wood
never made.
And after "Eye of the
Beholder" and "Ya-Ya
Sisterhood," "Bug" conclu-
sively proves that Ashley
Judd seeks out these humilia-.
tions in a movie script: gratu-
itous nudity; heavy emission-'
of bodily liquids from the
eyes and nose; and dialogue
that turns her character into
a total ditz.
Our first clue that this
movie is off the beam is that.
it's set in Oklahoma, yet the
phone that we see in con-
stant close-up displays a 904
area code. This is an ominous
sight to a Jacksonville Beach
movie reviewer, but I let it
pass at first.
Anyway, Judd plays a lone-
ly bar waitress named Agnes.
One night, a friend intro-
duces Agnes to a drifter
named Peter (Michael
Shannon). At first, Peter
strikes Agnes as monosyllab-
ic, but soon the two tenta-
tively open up to each other.
Later, Agnes, nasty ex-hus-
band Jerry (Harry Connick
Jr.) shows up and gives the
movie some palpable tension

that this might be a rational
But soon, Peter tells Agnes
he hasn't made love to a
woman in a long while, and
Agnes commands, "Come
'ere, boy," like a road-compa-
ny Blanche DuBois. Later
that night, Peter gets a bug
bite and has a long conversa-
tion with Agnes about bed-
.bugs because the surest
way to score points with a
naked Ashley Judd is to dis-
cuss insects.
At one point, Peter deserts
Agnes, and were thinking,
"Good for her." Then he
returns to tell Agnes how the
government has been run-
ning bug experiments on
him, and Agnes gets the
worst case of Stockholm
Syndrome ever.
Before long, Peter is using

a junior-high microscope
(where'd a drifter get that?)
to examine stuff that isn't
even there, and Agnes is so
afraid of losing this wack-job
that she starts seeing the
stuff too.
From there, the movie
derails to a completely
bonkers climax, with
Shannon making like
Christopher Walken,
Connick doing Jack
Nicholson, and Judd doing,
well, bad Ashley Judd.

And every bit of it is fasci-

Main Branch Library going

ape for the month of June

For the month of June, the
downtown library is going ape.
That is to say, if you are a
"King Kong" fan, you will defi-
nitely want to visit the Main
Library on Thursday after-
noons this month.
Their "Goin, Ape" film series
will feature every American
incarnation of "King Kong"
ever made. (Happily, "King
Kong vs. Godzilla" was not
included in the series.)
For me, after nearly 75 years,
the best version remains the
original "King Kong" (1933;
showing on June 7). Yes, some
of the dialogue is stilted in the
way that only '30s movie dia-
logue can be. But this story of
would-be starlet Ann Darrow
(the immortal Fay Wray), and
her inspiration of lust in a gar-
gantuan gorilla, remains one
of the great "popcorn" movies
of all time. Through amazing
stop-motion camera work, a
foot-tall model of Kong was
made to look like the terror of
New York City, and he still
packs a wallop.
The movie succeeds mostly
due to the sincere and
painstaking efforts of the its
director/creators, Ernest B.
Schoedsack and Merian C.
Cooper. (If you'd like to know
what they look .like, watch
"Kong's" famous climax
they're the airplane pilots who
knock Kong off the. Empire
State Building.)
June 14 brings the well-
intentioned but much--
maligned 1976 remake of
"Kong," updating the story to
the '70s. Here,, an appropriate-
ly oily head of a petroleum
company (Charles Grodin, the
best part of the movie) hap-
pens upon Kong while looking
for new oil resources.
Unfortunately, via cheap
special effects and music, this
looks and sounds like a '70s
TV-iflafrie. And theimov'vieis.
completely :done' in' by fufur-ir
Oscar winner Jessica Lange (!),
making her movie debut as
Dwan, the movie's flower-

power counterpart to Ann
Darrow. Lists of immortally
bad movie dialogue are often
topped by Dwan's command
to Kong: "Put me down, you
[expletive] chauvinist pig ape!"
On June 21 comes
DeLaurentiis, even more ill-
fated sequel, "King Kong
Lives" (1987), notably mainly
for its stars: Linda Hamilton,
then hot from her role in "The
Terminator"; and Peter
Michael Goetz, whose home
proudly displays the movie's
poster ^ and his three-cent roy-
alty check from the movie's
Finally, there's Peter
Jackson's 2005 "Kong" remake.
Jackson intended it as a labor
of love, and it certainly has its
followers. For me, the movie's
best element was Naomi Watts,
heartfelt performance as Ann
Darrow. Otherwise, the movie
suffers from overlength (three
hours!) and overdone special
But regardless of their vary-
ing quality, all versions of
"Kong" are on display this
month ^ judge them for your-
self as escapist summer fare.
The "Goin, Ape" series will
be shown each Thursday in
June at 5:30 p.m. at the Main
Library, 303 N. Laura St. in
downtown Jacksonville.
Admission is free.

Your child may have 20/20 eyesight
but 0/0 vision. The difference is critical.
eyesight is merely the basic ability to see.
Vision is the ability to identify, interpret,
comprehend, and act on what is seen.
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most eye care professionals
measure eyesight. They do not include
the kinds of testing that can find visually
related learning problems.
Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat
vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
Unable to sit still; cannot stay on task for any
length of time.
Ver%, clumsy; poor eye-hand coordination.
SDoes written work very slowly; often fails to
complete a task.
Has difficulty copying visual material:
constantly looks utip and down:
Moves entire head instead of eyes when
Reversals-for example confusing the words
"was and saw" or letters "b and d".
Is disorganized and frustrated when studying
visual information.
Makes frequent, "careless" errors.
If your son or daughter, age 7-18, has one or more of these behaviors, call.
246-1952 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems.
It could be the most important phone call you will make during his/her school years.

Consumers should be able to

taste the difference between

wine-growing regions

F or centuries American
winemakers have attempt-
ed to mimic their French
counterparts. They copied their
winemaking techniques and
even grew the same grape vari-
eties. But there were' always dif-
ferences the French label
focused' on the village where
the grapes were grown; the
American label focused on the
grape variety.
Now comes Jeff McBride,
winemaker at the venerable
Conn Creek Winery, who
believes like the French that
consumers should be able to
taste the differences between
wine-growing regions.
Napa Valley is an. American
Viticulture Area that is broken
up into 14 sub regions with an
approval for an additional one
(Calistoga) pending. Although
the goal of sub-AVAs was to
identify areas with unique fla-
vor profiles, the boundaries
were often politically drawn for
marketing reasons.
Winemakers regularly source
their grapes from a variety of
regions anyway, so consumers
will find, for example, "Central
Coast" on the label so broad a
region that there is nothing
unique about the flavor.
Mr. McBride wants to change
that. For several years now he
has been making a wine from
each of the 15 sub regions. He
sets aside 65 cases of each for
future trade tasting and then
releases four of the 15 wines for
sale. Although consumers may
not be able to compare all 15,
they have a unique opportunity
to tastes the differences
between four of the sub-AVAs.
"Europeans have specific

'The Wine Guys'
zones, historical references and
traditional planting tech-
niques," Mr. McBride says. "We
take a soup bowl of ingredients.
Ours is a shotgun approach -
Europe has a rifle approach."
To make the comparisons
reasonably fair, Mr. McBride
attempts to standardize the
process. For instance, grapes are
picked at the same degree of
ripeness and they spend the
same amount of time in the
same kind of oak barrels, He has
only so much control over the
vineyards Conn Creek doesn't
own, but Mr. McBride works
closely with their owners to
achieve his goals.
The two 2003 single-vineyard
wines we tasted offered the
interesting differences that Mr.
McBride had hoped to achieve.
The 2003 cabernet sauvignon
from the Collins Vineyard in St.
Helena has black fruit (black
berries) and chocolate flavors
and grainy tannins identified
with this area. On the other
hand, the 2003 from the
Herrick Vineyard in Yountville
had red fruit (cherries and

plums) and a softer mouthfeel.
Both were delicious, full-bod-
ied wines but distinctively dif-
ferent. They each cost $45. To
compare them would be an
educational experience for you.
Conn Creek makes other red
wine separate from its sub-AVA
program. Here are some qf our
Conn Creek Cabernet Franc
2003 ($30). Not many wine-
makers have the grapes to make
a multi-dimensional cabernet
franc usually a blending
grape. This one doesn't have
the vegetal characteristic often
associated with the grape vari-
ety. About 15 percent of the
fruit was whole-berry ferment-
ed to soften the tannins and
preserve the fruit expression.
Pepper aromas with chocolate
and cherry flavors with soft
Conn Creek Limited Release
'Cabernet Sauvignon 203.
($35). The blend is 82 percent
cabernet sauvignon, 11 percent
cabernet franc and 7 percent
merlot. Lots of dried cherry and
cassis flavors and a touch of
chocolate. Complex and dense.
Individual vineyard lots are bar-
rel aged separately for 26
months in new and one-year-
old French oak.
Conn Creek Anthology
2003 ($40). Using all five
Bordeaux grape varieties, this
blend is full-bodied with an
expressive bouquet, silky tan-
nins and soft black fruit flavors.
It has been barrel aged for a
long 28 months in equal parts
new and one-year-old French
oak barrels, then held in bottle
for another 12 months before
being released.

10 tips for a safer home

Dear Jane,
There have been a string of
burglaries in our neighborhood.
Any tips for securing our locks?
Pat Craig

Neighborhood crime is very
unsettling. While you can't
guarantee that your home will
never be broken in to, there are
some easy preventative meas- ., / N'.
ures that should be taken given
your situation. Also, keep in
mind that a safe home means
protecting it from everything HEIDI B
that threatens it: Burglars, fires
and natural disasters, to name a EDEN
few. Check out our safety tips 'Be
to see if your home makes the
grade. If not, it's OK. Many of
these projects are accomplished with less than
an afternoon worth of work.

Check your locks
Making sure you have sturdy locks is crucial
to the safety of your home and family. If you
have just moved into a new home you may
want to consider having all of the locks
changed, especially if they are showing signs of
wear and tear. Perhaps you are looking for a lit-
tle more security, in which case you can install
a deadbolt or another series of locks.

Windows and doors
Assess your home's windows and doors. Do
they seem flimsy, old or hollow? If so, you
probably want to invest in a little upgrading. If
this isn't within your budget, iron screens with
locks are a good alternative for securing the
door. Likewise, check your windows. Do all of
the locks work? Are panes missing or easily
removed? If so, upgrade or replace them imme-

Keep it lit
Motion sensor lights are superb means of
repelling burglars, and with a price tag of $15-
and-up, you really have no excuse not to
install a few around your home. Sensor lights
can be programmed to go on and off at a spe-
cific time or when they sense motion or heat.
They are also.great to have inside the house, in
the laundry room or garage.

A peephole may seem unnecessary, but wait
until you live without one. Peepholes are cheap
and easy to install all you need is a drill and a
screwdriver. After you pick up a peephole at
your local home improvement center, place it
low enough so that all members of the family
can use it. A peephole that is too high will not
benefit the kids.

Cause for alarm,
Most homes these days come equipped with
smoke detectors, but have you checked yours


lately to make sure that it is
working? Smoke detectors
should be checked every month
and batteries should be replaced
< every year.

Get the fireplace
Everyone loves to huddle
around a warm fire on a cold
S- \.[( r day but if your chimney hasn't
been cleaned within the last
year, you are living with a
major fire hazard. Make an
KER and annual chimney inspection and
cleaning a priority. Also,
IARRIN remember to clean up ash regu-
ane' larly, bum chimney-cleaning
logs once in awhile, and make
sure your damper is in proper
working order.

Take a hold of mold
Everyone lives with a little mold, but when it
starts living (and multiplying) inside your
home, you have a problem. Besides contribut-
ing to allergies and skin irritation, too much
mold can lead to serious respiratory problems
in children and adults. If you are seeing or
smelling mold in your home, tackle it right

Put the fire out
A fire extinguisher is a basic lifesaving tool
that many people overlook. Available at your
home improvement store for about $15-and-
up, a couple of fire extinguishers are a must-
have for every home. Place one in the garage,
one in the kitchen and a couple upstairs. Make
sure all family members know where they are
and how to operate them.

Furnace service
If you live in a warm climate, you probably
haven't given your furnace much thought, but
even the mildest winters call for an annual fur-
nace inspection. While your furnace sits dor-
mant all winter, dust and dirt can gather,
releasing harmful particles into the air. It's best
to have a professional inspect your entire heat-
ing and cooling system for cracks and leaks,
just to be on the safe side.

Get kitted out
Finally, is your family prepared for an emer-
gency? See that your family has a first aid and
emergency kit. If your area has frequent torna-
does, earthquakes, or hurricanes, it is especially
important to get the tools you need to deal
with such disasters. (While you are at it, make
sure your car has an emergency kit, too.)

I've seen in the two years I've
been writing the column.
Unfortunately, due to an e-
mail glitch, some of your e-
mails went unanswered for
two months, and I apologize
