County sifting

through impact

of legislative cuts

by DAVID M. LEVIN
STAFF WRITER
The county will do better than expect-
ed.
That is what County Director of Budget
Management Doug Timms said in
response to property tax reform that is
expected to,restrict capital project funding
in the county.
"We won't have funds," Timms said
Tuesday. "But we can get through."
The proposed budget cuts for the coun-
ty Timms said would be $24.4 million for
2008 and $47.7 million for 2009. The
county still must find a way to cut anoth-
er $4.4 million from its current budget
proposal, he said.
With only about $2 million for capital
improvement projects, Timms said he and
his staff will be tightening purse strings to
get as much done while spending as little
as possible.
Timms said that county operation
expenses would be cut over the next three
years.
Originally the proposed tax reform
would have cut programs and funding by
20 percent across the board. The state
"compromised" and saw that there was a
need for change, Timms said, describing
that as "positive."
"We are very optimistic. they [legisla-
tors] could have hit us hard. I think they
came to a brokered amount. This could
have been cataclysmic," he said.

MSD wants, end


BellSouth tells MSD no on burying lines to wild bikers


by DAVID M. LEVIN
STAFF WRITER


The Municipal Service District of
* Ponte Vedra Beach (NISDi has finally
received a response from BellSouth
regarding a proposal to place tele-
phone wiring unrdergiound.
It was not the answer MSD trustees
were hoping to get.
In a May 16 letter, Robert Suarez,
director of engineering for AT&T
Northeast Florida, stated the local
telephone company would be will-
ing to move all wiring underground
if the MSD was willing to pay a gen-
eral subscriber tariff.
"I do not feel they are being good
corporate citizens," MSD trustee Bill
Donovan told The Leader.


A letter was sent to BellSouth in
Jacksonville on April 12 explaining
to Suarez that the MSD was asking
the wiring be placed underground as
part of the storm hardening order
issued by the Public Service
Commission. While other utility
companies have complied with the
request, BellSouth still has telephone
wires that cover a seven-block span
section on Solana Road.
Now, Donovan said a newer pro-
posal by PSC officials could twist the
arm of BellSouth officials and force
.them to comply with the storm
hardening order.
"I do not feel the taxpayers should
have to.pay for this. I feel like we are
subsidizing their plan," Donovan
added.


Donovan said, after, talking with,
state officials who are conducting
workshops at the University of
Florida concerning storm hardening,
this has become a statewide prob-
lem.
Now, the MSD will look to the
county to see that no more aerial
wiring is placed within the district.
Suarez also said that although
Beaches Energy, which provides elec-
trical service, has moved its electrical
wiring underground, that does not
mean BellSouth will comply under
the same guidelines.
Originally, the PSC required all
electric companies to have a five-
year plan for storm hardening,

Ethics Commission concludes Little query
FROM STAFF


The Florida Commission on Ethics, meeting
in Tallahassee on June 8 in closed executive ses-
sion, found probable cause to believe that Mary
Jane Little, director of the St. Johns County
Public Library System, "misused her position to
collect signatures on a political petition in a
County building, during working hours."
Because Little stopped collecting the signa-

tures when confronted by a library board mem-
ber and apologized for her lapse in judgment,
the Commission will take no further action on
the charges, Chairman Norman Ostrau
announced Wednesday.
A finding of probable cause is not a determi-
nation that a violation has occurred. Such a
determination is only made after a full eviden-
tiary hearing on the charges.

Carl Bloesing and other residents
along LaVista Drive want something to
be done about bicyclists who are not
obeying traffic laws within the
Municipal Service District (MSD).
"I ran into Sheriff Shoat and told him
there have been several complaints
about bicyclists coming through stop
signs," Bloesing told trustees Monday
evening.
Bloesing also said that residents have
barely avoided being run over by the
bicyclists. He added this is a growing
problem that needs attention.
"We give them [bicyclists] verbal warn-
ings and try to educate them [about traf-
fic laws]," Sheriff's Deputy Tommy Aman
told trustees and the public.
In many instances, however, deputies
and the public are dealing with more
than one rider at a time, making it more
difficult to get them to stop or to issue
warnings.
Trustee Curtis Long, who is a bicyclist
himself, said he knows there is a prob-
lem within the district and said he
would help in the "education" of bikers.
He said he will also send an e-mail blast
to residents warning them of problem
and warn them that there are penalties
for disobeying traffic signs.
"Bicyclists ,are motorists too," Long
said.
"We need to get the word out in some
manner. Bicyclists need to give pedestri-
ans the right of way," he added.
Aman explained that a bicycle rider
has the same responsibility as motor
vehicle drivers. The stop signs are there
for their protection and the protection
of pedestrians and oncoming cars.
"As traffic laws go," they must obey.
They are considered a vehicle," he said.
Another problem Long said he sees is
bicyclists is riding more than two abreast
in a travel lane. The law states you can
travel two abreast but any more is a
direct traffic violation.
"They should be ticketed [like drivers
in vehicles]," he said.
Aman said not everyone is disobeying
the law. The larger groups are a main
concern of the deputies because of the

misidentified the e-mail's author. The author of the e-mail

sent anonymously, county officials said. The allegations
were part of an investigation and ethics complaint (see

'Creepy Crawlies' visit library in effort to draw boys in


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER


If you were invited to spend
an hour with a Mexican red-
kneed tarantula, 7-foot boa con-
strictor, blue-tongued skink,
two white rats and a bearded
dragon, would you accept?
More than 30 brave-hearted
souls, young and old alike, did
Wednesday, attending "Creepy
Crawlies" at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.
The audience that came to lis-
ten to Jimmy Kahre of the
Jacksonville Zoo, and partici-
pate in his program, consisted
of little kids, pre-teens,
teenagers and adults. Two of the
pre-teens, Lora Frazier and
Shanita Powell, helped hold
"Egon;" the 15-pound boa.
"I put together a program
that focuses on animals that
people usually call the 'ick' fac-
tor," said Kahre, who was invit-
ed to appear by young adults
librarian Michele Kiley. "Rats,
spiders, lizards and snakes are
typically what people are afraid
of, say give them the 'heebie-
jeebies.' Those are the animals
I've focused on."

skin of a diamondback rat-
tlesnake and the blue-tongued
skink also got a chance.
Kahre said he's done varia-


tions on the Creepy Crawlies
program as far north as
Brunswick, Ga., as far south as
Palm Coast and as far west as
Gainesville. During the sum-
mer, he said he does 10-12 pro-
grams a week.
Kiley, who has been at the
library 2-1/2 years and its young
adult librarian for six months,
said she invited Kahre because
"I'm hoping to attract more
boys to the library. I've lots of
things for girls. I kind of want to
get the 'ick' factor up, because
teens like that. So I thought I'd
try the Creepy Crawlies. Maybe
we can do .something for
Halloween. I want to get some
bats in here."
Kahre explained how young-
sters react to Creepy Crawlies.
"You either love them or you
hate them. But if you hate
them, you love to hate them.
The Creepy Crawlies are always
popular," he said. "I've had peo-
ple say, 'I'm good with snakes, I
want to help hold it.' Are you
sure? It's a big snake. 'Yep.' As
soon as they see it, they change
their mind. Which is fine."
Although two little ones did
change their mind after coming
forward to help hold Egon,


Frazier and Powell didn't. Each
enjoyed the experience, and
expressed surprise by how the
snake felt.
"I think it felt, like, cool, and
I never did it before. But I had a
good time. I definitely do like
boa constrictors now," said
Powell, accompanied to the
library by her younger sister,
Shyanne.
Frazier echoed Powell.
"It really felt cool. Different,"
said Frazier, who also gave
Kahre the response he was seek-
ing when he asked how large
cockroaches can get. She had
seen a big cockroach in an out-
of-state zoo, so knew the answer
was "not as big as your hand."
Most members of the audience
in the Friends of the Library
Community Room held their
hands up when Kahre asked
who thought cockroaches could
grow larger than a person's
head.
"What the program means to
the Zoo," said Kahre, "is it's a
way of educating people in an
interesting way. In other words,
it's sneaking learning in
through fun."

Allten, original to Landrum Middle School, retires


FROM STAFF

Bob Allten, the St. Johns County
principal who started Landrum
Middle School, retires this month
after a 35-year career in education,
the last 29 of which were spent with
the county school district.
The 59-year-old was honored at a
retirement party June 9 at the Shrine
Club in St. Augustine.
Allten, who has held various posi-
tions in the school district, retired
from his post as principal at Pedro
Menendez High School, a job he
took in 2004. He was succeeded by
Clay Carmichael, who is moving
from a similar position at Fruit Cove
Middle School. Carmichael takes
over July 1.
Before Pedro Menendez, Allten
served from 1997-2004 as the school
district's director for planning and
accountability.
Allten inaugurated Landrum
Middle in 1991. While at Landrum,
where he served until 1997, the mid-
dle school achieved National Blue
Ribbon status. He accepted the
award from President Bill Clinton at
the White House.
In 1995, Allten, who began his
professional career as a chemist after
earning a degree in biology and
chemistry from Catawba College in
1970, received the Florida
Commissioner of Education's


Principal Achievement Award for
Outstanding Leadership.
He took advanced studies in
nuclear chemistry in 1971 at Oak
Ridge Associated Universities and
earned a master's degree in school
administration and supervision at
the University of North Florida in
1976.
Allten started his administrative
career as vice principal at Nease
High School, serving from 1981-86.
He then became principal of Ponte
Vedra-Palm Valley Elementary
School, where he served from 1986-
1991.
Allten started his career in educa-
tion by teaching biology and chem-
istry in Brevard County schools in
1970-71. He left the education ranks
for one year, accepting a public rela-
tions specialist's position with the
Atomic Energy Commission. He
returned to education in 1972 at the
John Carroll Institute of
Jacksonville, which he left five'years
later as assistant headmaster.
Allten joined the St. Johns County
School District in 1978, becoming a
biology and marine biology instruc-
tor at what then was Ponte Vedra-
Palm Valley Junior High School. He
also served as head basketball coach,
assistant football coach and tennis
coach.
"It's been a great 35 years," Allten
said of his career in education.

County nears administrator deal; term to be 5 years


by DAVID M. LEVIN
STAFF WRITER
The St. Johns County Board of County
Commissioners approved changes to a pro-
posed contract for incoming County
Administrator Michael Wanchick.
While the contract has not been finalized,
commissioners and county attorney Patrick
McCormack said they expect the deal can be
completed to have Wanchick start work July
30.
The county has authorized McCormack
to continue negotiations with Wanchick,
whc is the assistant city manager of
Richardson, Texas.
Although the county has approved the
contract with the minor changes, Wanchick
must now give his approval to the terms
and conditions.
"This is a boiler room style contract,"
commission chairman Ben Rich told other

nation of the terms of the deal.
Wanchick was offered the county's top
position on May 22 after the commissioner
voted unanimously to offer him the posi-
tion.
"I was very pleased with the process and
the way things have gone," Wanchick said
in a telephone interview Wednesday. "I do
not want to do anything to taint that per-
ception."
Wanchick said that because both sides
have been so amicable, he is hoping to have
a contract signed by the end of the week.
He had not received the new contract pro-
posal by the county at the time of the inter-
view.


Budget Cut
Continued from A-1
Timms said he is also encour-
aged by the growth of property
values in the county. While the
home sales market continues to
decline, Timms said there has
been a 10.8 percent growth in
property values countywide. It is
unclear how much of that is due
to new construction and how
much is increased assessments.
According to county budget
analyst Dawn Cardenas, the
commission will be charged
with determining what pro-
grams will be most important.
Timms' office will have a
finalized budget to present to
the commission by July 15. The

which entails moving wiring
underground to minimize the
risk of damage during storms.
The PSC did not require electric
companies to move wiring
underground, but it did man-
date they share their plan with
other utility companies that
rent space on the utility poles.
The poles that exist along
Solana Road have the potential
to cause damage to homes and
neighborhoods if a major storm
were to hit the Ponte Vedra
Beach area, MSD members said.
BellSouth contends the order
by the PSC only governs electric
companies and not telecommu-
nications companies.
"The rules do not require
conversion of lines by the
power company [or by AT&T
Florida] underground," Suarez
said.
Suarez goes on to say the aer-
ial wiring would be removed if
an agreement could be reached
by AT&T and the MSD based on
a cost estimate.
MSD chairman Rob Becker


Wanchick aid he does not see any reason
why he will not be working in the county
come July 30.
McCormack said the document outlines
provisions for salary, benefits and expenses
based on contracts for administrators who
are working in counties similar to St. Johns
County.
The contract calls for Wanchick to make
$170,000 as a base salary, plus a car
allowance, phone allowance, moving
expenses and other benefits.
Two provisions in the contract that com-
missioners questioned was the indefinite
term of the contract and the allowances
given to Wanchick for moving his family to
the area.
Commissioners, led by District 4 repre-
sentative Tom Manuel agreed that there
should be some limit on the contract given
to Wanchick, possibly three, to five years
NOith an option for renewal. Having him in
count)' as soon as possible is something all
the commissioners agreed was important.
"It is the most important job in the coun-
ty. I want him to relocate here as soon as
possible," Manuel said.
The contract was reworded so that both
parties would agree to a time limit, to be
agreed upon before signing, as well as terms
for renewal. McCormack said it will be a 5-
year agreement with two year renewals.
Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson said she
also wanted there to be some protection in
the contract for the county should
Wanchick leave his post earlier than the
contract states and asked there be penalties
for compensation and return on the coun-


final budget, cuts and all, will be
presented to the board in
September.
The county has proposed a
budget of $713 million for fiscal
2007-2008, which begins Oct. 1.
That is $20 million less than the
budget for the current fiscal year
which will end Sept. 30.
At the county commission
meeting on Tuesday, two budget
presentations were made by
Clerk of Courts Cheryl
Strickland and Supervisor of
Elections Penny Halyburton.
Both are constitutional officers
who must present their pro-
posed budgets to the commis-
sion.


told The Leader in a telephone
interview that the organization
had an agreement with Beaches
Energy to take down the wiring
during the sewer project. They
did not have an agreement with
BellSouth.
An August 2006 letter to:
BellSouth from trustee Bob
Reesh states that the removal of
the wiring from existing utility
poles was part of a beautifica-
tion project. Becker said,
though, that the removal of the
wiring and poles from the area
was more for safety of the resi-
dents along Solana Road and
the MSD.
According to Don Ouchley,
director for Beaches Energy, the
work the local electric company
did during the sewer project
had nothing to do with
BellSouth. .
"We did it [removal of the
poles] for liability reasons," said
Ouchley. "We tried to get all our
facilities underground. We can
justify it because of the liabili-
ty."
Ouchley also said he thought


ty's investment if Wanchick should -leave
after a short amount of time.
McCormack said Wanchick would lose
his compensation by breaking the contract
with the county.'
Currently, Wanchick makes over
$169,000 in Richardson, and was expected
to received a raise in October, McCormack
told the commission.
McCormack said Wanchick is willing to
move to the county for the same amount of
money he is making now, He has had sever-
al discussions with staff members who have
told him that Wanchick is "doing very well
there." The $170,000 is "in the ballpark for
what the administrators make for this coun-
ty size."
"He is entitled to the same benefits as
other county employees," he added.
The commission is also looking into a
relocation company to help Wanchick fiod
.housing and. to help hir. with his hn p in
Texas. The move may allow him to move to
the county sooner without the worries asso-
ciated with trying to sell his current home.
"The earlier you get a relocation company
involved, the better off you will be," current
interim administrator Wally Kropaceksaid.
The commissioners approved the use of
the relocation company to aid Wanchick in
the move.
Wanchick was selected from a pool of 54
applicants nationwide. The initial list of
candidates were narrowed to nine and then
five by the commission and Colin Baenziger
& Associates before the finalists were
brought to the county to meet with officials
on May 17 and 18.


Sheriff David Shoar will pres-
ent his budget to the commis-
sion on June 26.
Halyburton said she did not
make many changes to her
budget from 2007, but will be
asking for more help with
updated election equipment
after the 2008 general election.
"There are no major high-
lights to my budget, Halyburton
told commissioners. "I haven't
asked for any new equipment."
Halyburton said the new opti-
cal scanning machines and vot-
ing machines will need to be
purchased after the elections
because she does not want to
have any problems with newer


there might be a greater priority
for the electrical wiring to be
placed underground than other
utility companies. The loss of
electrical service could possibly
affect more residents than cable
or telephone services.
BellSouth is claiming,
through an answer to the PSC
request for storm hardening,
that it has already placed a sig-
nificant number of wiring
underground and the work
completed could be damaged
by other utility companies that
place wiring below the tele-
phone companies work. The
damage could cause major out-
ages of phone service or utility
service in the area.
Donovan also said that he
hopes the PSC sees the prob-
lems that exist with the current
proposal and changes are made
to accommodate other utility
outlets beside the electric com-
panies. He said he also hopes a
new proposal might change the
minds of telephone officials.
"It is a strange situation," he
said.

takes place.
"We hope everyone has a per-
fect election," she added.
After 2008, the county's
equipment will no longer be
maintained by the manufacturer
and the county will need to pur-
chase optical scan equipment
that could be used in the 2012
elections. Halyburton said the
price tag for the new equipment
will be between $1.3 and $1.5
million.
"I am not happy to stand here
and ask for you for the money. I
know the state has grant money
for this" Halyburton said. "But
it is only $92,382.02."

Beach laws amended


to aid turtle nesting


by DAVID M. LEVIN
STAFF WRITER
The St. Johns County Commission voted unanimously
this week to have vehicles off the county beaches no later
than 7:30 p.m. during turtle nesting season.
The older law allowed vehicle traffic on the beach until
8 p.m. Now, beachgoers who are caught with their vehicles
improperly on the sand could be ticketed.
The law does not effect residents in Ponte Vedra, but
only beaches within the county where motor vehicles are
permitted.
Karen Pan, media relations specialist for the county, said
the ordinance will allow for the beach to be combed so
debris does not interfere with nesting. While the ruts or
tracks left by vehicles do not usually hurt the mother tur-
tles in their pursuit to lay their eggs, it does impede the
progress of baby turtles as they head back to the ocean
after hatching.
Pan said County Beach operations is in charge of comb-
ing the beach and repairing the tracks and grooves left by
motor vehicles. Pan said the beach is not combed every
day, but beach officials monitor the beach and when large
grooves or holes are present, thee are filled.
The emergency ordinance is in response to the federal
Incidental Take Permit which is in effect until Oct. 31, the
end of turtle nesting season. This is an ordinance that pro-
tects residents and allows them to continue to drive their
motor vehicles on the beach. The ordinance does not per-
tain to bicycles. Pan said the county considers them pedes-
trian vehicles.
Failure to abide by these laws could mean residents
would lose their beach driving privileges all together.
In addition to changes in vehicle schedules, the county
also approved the prohibition of fireworks or explosives oh
the beach. This part of the ordinance is permanent, Pan
said.

Rules of the road

apply to bikers

Enough is enough.
That is what the Municipal Service District (MSD)
trustees said this week in urging a crackdown on bicy-
clists who do not follow the rules of the road.
Stop signs are not just for drivers, according to state
law. Bicyclists must obey the same road rules.
According to the MSD, however, too many bicyclists
either do not know the law or are unwilling to obey the
law, causing problems for some pedestrians and others.
Enforcement can and should be undertaken consis-
tently. To allow bikers to blithely ignore the rules of the
road without fear of consequences is dangerous.
The problem of rogue cyclists is not limited to the
MSD, which encompasses much of the original old
Ponte Vedra area.
Throughout the Beaches, bikers of all ages too often
act as if the rules of the road do not apply to them. How
else can you account for so many bicyclists ignoring
stop signs along First Street and elsewhere?
Hefty fines could bring speeding cyclists to a screech-
ing halt.
Younger bicyclists should be well trained as well, and
parents have a responsibility to make sure children
understand the legal obligation to stop at a stop sign.
Cruising through a four-way stop may be easier and
faster, but it is certainly not safer.
For too many years, it has appeared that some bicy-
clists assume the responsibility for road safety rests sole-
ly with the drivers of motor vehicles.
That is not the case and police enforcement would go
a long way in making that clear to those who think the
rules do not apply to bicyclists.

Dad created order out of chaos

during childhood and it was great


E ven on the hottest
nights of the summer,
my father (the Big Guy)
knew how to make our
house ice cold.
We lived in a modest two-
story home typical of the '60s
and '70s -- red brick on the
bottom, white aluminum sid-
ing on the top. There were
four bedrooms upstairs and a
master bedroom downstairs
(my parent's room, which we
added onto the back of our
house in 1972).
Only one house in our
neighborhood had air condi-
tioning back then. It was
locked up tighter than Fort
Knox.
Most houses were wide
open all summer. This
allowed the outside sounds to
come in and the inside
sounds to go out.
I woke every morning to
the sound of birds chirping, a
dewy chill in the air. I'd hear
sausageszzIngmna neigh-
bor's kitchen. A screen door
slamming, a car starting, a
father lumbering off to work.
The afternoons were quiet -
- the older kids went on bike
hikes .or swimming at the
community pool -- but as
evening arrived, the sounds
came alive again. At dinner
time, kids were called home
through a variety of shouts,
chants, bells and horns. Pork
and chicken sizzled on grills.
Families ate and talked on
back porches.
As darkness fell, a range of
new sounds echoed through-
out the neighborhood: a dog
barking; a motorcycle down-
shifting on some faraway hill;
Bob Prince and Nellie King
broadcasting Pirates games
on the radio; a baby crying; a
couple squabbling...
And window fans hum-
ming.

It took him years to perfect
his method, but by closing
some windows and doors and
adjusting others to varying
degrees of openness, he
tuned our house like a fine
violin. He could drive down
the temperature 15 degrees or
more in a matter of minutes.
I remember coming home
on summer nights when I
was in college. I'd open the
front door and be greeted by
a burst of cool air. Sometimes
the Big Guy would be in the
kitchen, leaning on the coun-
tertop with his elbows as he
ate his favorite snack --
peanut butter crackers and
ice-cold milk.
He'd hand me the peanut-
butter-smeared knife and I'd
smatter a couple of crackers.
As we chomped away, we'd
mumble through a conversa-
tion about college or the


Pirates or a variety of other
conversations sons had with
their dads in the kitchen such
nights.
Other times, the Big Guy
and mother would be lying in
bed in the back room, the
lights off, the television light
flickering as Johnny Carson
delivered his monologue, the
window fan humming. We'd
chat for a spell before I head-
ed up to bed.
I went to. the hardware
store to buy a window fan

I recall

Cuba in

pre-Castro

period

resident Fidel Castro of
Cuba is alleged to be
possibly stepping away
from death's door.
According to a recent head-
line, "Castro says he was
sicker than (the Cuban) gov-
ernment admitted." Now
he's apparently feeling up to
writing diatribes denounc-
ing the United States.
So it looks as if the dictator
may retake control of the
island nation, and Jaxons
may not be able to have fun
in Havana anytime soon.
Also, Cuban citizens will no
doubt keep on trying to
escape any way they can.
This recalls the incredible,
heroic feat of Orestes
Lorenzo Perez, a Cuban air
force major who defected
alone to the U.S. on March
20, 1991 in a MiG-23 jet
fighter plane. He flew back to
Cuba in December of 1992 in
an old Cessna to rescue his
wife and two young sons,
landing the aircraft in des-
perate, daredevil fashion on
.a new coastal highway in
between moving vehicle traf-
In 1956, on vacation, I
drove a rental car down the
connecting, original coast
road. The area is near the city
of Matanzas, Spanish for
"slaughters" or "killings,"
perhaps a disturbing thought
for Lorenzo. when approach-
ing the prearranged meeting
location. He couldn't be sure
that the Cuban radar hadn't
spotted him. Fortunately, the
hair-raising effort was suc-
cessful. He got his family to
Florida, safe and sound.
For a while, Lorenzo was a
celebrity. He appeared on
CNN, Larry King Live! and
The Tonight Show.
Newspapers in major U.S.
cities ran an account on page
one. He even served as grand
marshal of Disney World's
daily parade, accompanied
by his wife and children, rid-
ing in a fire truck, followed
by Mickey and Goofy.
The national reaction to
his act was impressive.
Reportedly, 347 phone calls
were recorded at a supportive
human rights organization,
the Valladares Foundation.
Included were a dozen from
movie producers and book
agents, but evidently noth-
ing came of them. It's hard
to believe that Hollywood
didn't realize the potential
for a blockbuster motion pic-
ture, given such an inspiring
story, but maybe it's not too
late
If Lorenzo has declined to
play himself in a film, I
could offer to suppress my
stage fright and take the part,
provided I were equipped
with a Snoopy-type aviator's
leather hat and goggles plus
a flowing neck scarf. It
would be my big chance, so
I'd want to look authentic.
Maybe my good friend Ethel
would be available for the
wife's role. The kids, of
course, would have to be at
least age 45.

PALATKA DAILY NEWS
WELEKA A Memorial Day
weekend vacation of boating
and fishing in Weleka made
more than just memories for
Tim Thompson of Jacksonville
Beach. It may have made him
a hero, according to Weleka
Police Chief Charlie
Piwowarski.
"I want to recognize him
one way or another, so I'm
going to give him a Good
Sanriarita awardd" he said.
According to 'rhompson, 4p
and his wife, Belinda, with
neighbors Chip and Lisa Van
Nelson, planned to spend four
days at Andersen's Lodge fish-
ing, boating and visiting the
springs.


On Friday evening, the
group was planning a dinner
at the lodge when Belinda and
Lisa heard a loud thud, said
Thompson.
"We all looked down from
the balcony and didn't see
anything," he said. "Then my
friend Chip said he saw a
women walking into one of
the boats along the dock."
He said about that time a
pair of flip flops had popped
up to the surface of the river
and then the group saw a
women with a yellow shirt and
black hair under the water.
"I ran down to the pier
around the restaurant and bar
to get to the deck where she
was," he said.
The woman, who appeared
to, be in-herA40O.s, first-4isap-.
pe:Rre-thep reappeared in.
about 5 or 6 feet of water, he
added.
"Then her left hand floated
up and I grabbed her by the
wrist," he said.
With the help of his friend


Van Nelson, Thompson ,said
he removed her from the water
and began administering CPR.
"Basically, I began adminis-
tering CPR until her eyes start-
ed blinking, so I quit," he said.
"By that time the paramedics
were there and that is the last
I've heard of her."
According to Mike
Patterson, chief of Putnam
County Emergency Services, a
woman, who was not identi-
fied because of privacy rules,
was treated and transported to
'Putnam Community Medical
Center and later transferred to
Shands at UNF.
"Evidently somebody helped
her before we got there, and
she was alive when we trans-
ported her," he said.
Thompson said he, really
doesn't feel special :or, like a,
hero and that he and his wife
have prayed about what hap-
pened.
"Actually I feel like an aver-
age guy that did what should
have been done," he said.

Dunkin' Donuts opening
in Atlantic Beach offers
new design and menu
A Dunkin' Donuts in Atlantic
Beach will introduces a new
restaurant design and menu.
The new store, located at 2158
Mayport Road, featured a grand

2005; he currently owns three
Dunkin' Donuts franchises in'

menu and an updated image.
It is the second prototype
restaurant that Dunkin' Brands
has helped a franchisee build in

Tips when you are buying or


selling during hurricane season


by Charles J. Kovaleski
CONTRIBUTOR
Hurricane Season began June
1, and if forecasters are correct,
those of us along the North
Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Coast
are in for a very active six-
month period-in marked con-
trast, unfortunately, to the rela-
tively slow season we experi-
enced last summer.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric. ,, Administration
forecasted 13 to 17 named
storms, including seven' to 10
hurricanes. It is expected that
three to five of the storms will
be major hurricanes, with sus-
tained winds topping 110 mph.
The busy season underscores
predictions made earlier this
year by other agencies, includ-
ing the National Hurricane
Center, and by tropical storm
experts at Colorado State
University.
For those of us residing in vul-
nerable regions, the images of
recent hurricanes (including
Katrina, Jeanne, Francis and
Wilma) linger as we head into
the 2007 hurricane season. But
for most of us, life goes'on dur-
ing the summer months peo-
ple are still buying and selling
property, albeit at a slower pace
than we have seen in quite
some time.
Considering the devastation
and destruction caused by hur-
ricanes, however, buying or sell-
ing a home takes on a whole
new dimension when it comes
to protecting our families and
our property.
For buyers, the devastating
potential of hurricanes and
flooding reminds us to look
beyond the aesthetics of a new
home, and to thoroughly inves-
tigate a structure's safety and
stability in the even of a major
storm.
For sellers, previous storms
have forced us to make deci-
sions about what should be dis-
closed to potential buyers about
hurricane-related damage and
repairs that may have been
made fairly recently.
If you are unlucky enough to
be under contract when a hurri-
cane strikes, ask your real estate
attorney to check the purchase
document for disaster-related
repair contingencies that might
affect the home's purchase. If
you are planning to buy during
hurricane season, be sure these
types of contingencies are
included in your contract.
Depending on when the
storm strikes in your escrow
process, be prepared for re-


inspections and repairs follow-
ing a major storm, which can
affect everything from your
closing date to the final price of
the home.'
Use the following guidelines
as you buy or sell Florida prop-
erty this summer:
If you're buying. The quality
of a home's construction, of
course, is the most important
indicator of its ability to with-
stand.hurricane-force winds. A
solidly built concrete block
home tith a nrew roof, impact-,
resistant windows and hurri-
cane shutters offers the most
protection.
Also consider:
The home's proximity to the
coast, which can mean
increased vulnerability to a hur-
ricane's storm surge. Property
located on the beach also has a
much higher risk of wind dam-
age. If you buy near the beach,
be sure the home's construction
is solid and complies with all
current building codes for hurri-
cane safety.
The area's drainage and ele-
vation, since homes built on a
low-lying lot or on land with
poor drainage are more likely to
suffer potential flood damage.
Ask your Realtor to check if the
area you are considering has
ever flooded, and be on the
lookout for remnants of previ-
ous flood damage in the home
itself.
The condition of the home's
yard, as healthy, well-main-
tained trees and bushy shrubs
can act as a buffer against high
winds while overgrown or
unhealthy trees can topple onto
roofs or become projectiles dur-
ing a hurricane. If you are con-
sidering a home that needs
extensive yard work, make it a
priority if you are moving in
during hurricane season.
The security of pool cages
and screen enclosures, which
can crumple and fly irito homes
around them during high
winds. When considering a
home with any of these kinds of
structures, be sure to replace or
reinforce them.
If you're selling. Seller disclo-
sure standards in Florida cover
obvious defects, which are visi-
ble to the buyer; and material
defects, which are not readily
visible, such as an issue with the
roof or a hidden crack in the
foundation.
If you have any questions
about what should and should-
n't be disclosed, ask your real
estate attorney for some guide-
lines. A good rule of thumb is to
disclose any damage or defects


that you would want to know
about when buying your next
home.
Sellers should be willing to
volunteer hurricane-related
problems such as:
. Malfunctions in the major
systems of the home that may
have been caused by past
storms, including the founda-
tion, plumbing, electrical sys-
tem, heating and air condition-
ing, siding, windows, doors,
walls nd ceilings .d
Afiy dtional damage to
property e:to'ihe storm -and
subsequent flooding
Environmental hazards such
as mold, which can become a
problem if a home becomes
flooded in the aftermath of a
hurricane
Work completed without
building permits, such as car-
pentry or plumbing jobs
required following a major
storm
As a seller, you are only
required to disclose a home's
defects, not necessarily to fix
them. As long as you are honest
and up-front with the new
.owner, you are not liable if the
buyer decides against making
fixes to damages in the future.
If, however, an undisclosed
defect is discovered later, the
seller could be sued for misrep-
resenting the condition of the
home. A defect can also become


a negotiating point for the final
home price, with the cost of


repairs or replacement factored
into the agreed-upon asking
price.
As the storms of 2004 and
2005 punctuated, all of Florida
is vulnerable to storms and hur-
ricanes-both on and off the
coast. Whether you are buying
or selling your home, be pre-
pared when the weatherman
points to the next tropical
depression. -

Camp IAm Special


Beach teens volunteer at week-long summer

camp for young people with disabilities


b\ KATHY NICOLETLI
T.AFF I% WRITER
Student volunteers, includ-
ing several Beaches teens are
essential in making possible
week-long summer camps for
young people with disabilities,
said And', Duran. Director of
Carmp I Am Special in St. lonns
County
"This is only one of four or
fiv'.e camps like this in the
country he said.
[he teenagers gie their
time and complete ser\ ice This
is the only vway we are able to
do this as an overnight camp."
rhe Catholic Diocese of St.
Augustine offers (Camp I Am
Special to provide a recreation-
al experience for individuals
with a wide range of disabili-
ties.
There are seven sessions of
the camp with separate weeks
for those ages 6 to 13, 14 to 20,
and 20 to 30 years of age. In
addition there is a session for
children with profound disabil-
ities information is available
at w-wwv.campiamspecial.org
This summer 262 campers
are expected to attend
Camp I Am Special Each
camper is matched one-on-one
with a volunteer "buddy, said
Duran.
The volunteers, high school
students who have at least
completed 9th grade and col-
lege students, take on the
responsibility of helping their
camper have a safe and enloy-
able experience.
In the training tor the vol-
unteers, they are encouraged
to be "selfless" and are expect-
ed to be with their camper at
all times.
"This is the week of the year
for that camper," said Duran.
The volunteers are told to
"always ask \ ourself what is
best for my camper and act
accordingly."
For the volunteers, however,
the service is not seen as a sac-
rifice, said Luanne Kovacs from
Atlantic Beach.
All four of her children have
volunteered at Camp I Am
Special. This year her sons


Scott and Frank and daugh-
ter Molly volunteered there.
"Camp is different from the
real world," said Scott Kovacs,.
a recent Bishop kenny grad
who is volunteering for the
fourth year.
The camper; are happy 24/7
This is different from what
most teens are used to with
their friends and classmates, lie
said.
"It gives you a different per-
spective on how we live our
lives."
Kovacs' was responsible this
year for Feddy, a 7-year old boy
with autism from Boca Raton
who enjoyedd everything."
Frank Ko\acs was partnered
with Matthew, an 11-sear old
boy with a developmental dis-
order.This was the first experi-
ence at Camp I Am Special for
both of them, he said.
On the first day of camp,
Matthew wanted to go home
and was ready to hitchhike to
do so.
Recognizing that his
camper was feeling unsure ot
himself, Kovacs said he con-
centrated on helping him to
participate in activities and feel
accepted by the other campers
Volunteer buddies are
encouraged to turn to each
other when they encounter
challenges. There are also
experienced group leaders.
medical personnel, camp
directors, and other volunteers
on hand for extra help and
support.
Attitude is important in han-
dling the challenges the
campers face, said Molly
Kovacs, who will be a senior at
Bishop Kenny this year and has
volunteered for the past three
years.
"\Ve can do anything for five
days, but they (the campers) do
this all the time," she said.
This year she was partnered
with Andrea, a young teen
who was non-verbal and need-
ed assistance with walking.
Andcea needed help with eat-
ing and also liked to take naps.
Keeping her active during the
day helped Andrea to sleep at

OPINION


3v3 soccer returning to Davis Park


DAVID LEVIN
STAFF WRITER


Sports can

help forge

connection

with fathers

Sunday is Father's Day and
most of us will be spend-
ing time with our heroes.
Father's Day has always
been a special time for me.
And now that I have a son of
my own, I'm blessed to be
able to see just how important
the holiday is for my father.
My affinity with Father's
Day stretches long before my
parenting days and well
beyond my college years. I
never played organized sports
as a youngster and although I
was good at many things, I
was never great at any one
thing.
The weekends weren't about
spending time at the ballfield
or playing catch in the back-
yard they were about tele-
vision and scores and high-
lights.
And most of all, conversa-
tions that could have lasted
for hours about the Braves
and Dolphins and 76ers.
Fathers don't get enough
credit for the things they do.
Mine taught the love of sports
and the respect of teamwork
and camaraderie. How to love
the teams you root for, and be
mad whenithey lose. I get'
that passion from him.
All too often, dads are the
ones rooting at soccer games,
yelling at umpires when the
call is wrong and badgering a
coach when he takes you out
of a game on third-and-goal.
They are the ones who never
see you cry, pop you on the
tail when you succeed and try
to deal with your failure.
My father dealt with all of
that the fears, the failures
and the successes. But on the
playing fields that I like to call
newsprint instead of sod and
dirt.
My greatest joys in life have
been the result of my connec-
tion with sports journalism
and although I am not a
sports writer, I still have a pas-
sion for the big game and the
big story. Knowing my father
would get up every morning
to see my name in print still
makes me giddy. I knew he
beamed from ear to ear read-
ing the box score or my blurb
about the runner who just
broke the state 100-meter
record.
Not the biggest things, just
the little things that would
help make the day extra spe-
cial.
I remember writing a story
on the first time I was able to
"best" my father. Instead of
talking about the time I could
shoot a jumpshot over him or
sinking a 30-foot birdie, it was
the time when I could out-
smart the old man with sports
trivia or the times we would
watch the Jaguars and I could
tell him exactly how the team
would score.
When I was five, dad took
by brother Robby and me to a
Miami-FSU football game. The
stands were half full, the
game was sloppy and he
wanted to leave by half-time.
It is the first recollection of a
connection that still stands.
I don't have that yet with
my son. He is seven and
enjoys karate and NASCAR.
He does not enjoy baseball or
LeBron James or even Fred
Taylor. But he can tell you
which drivers race for Joe
Gibbs and why Fords struggle.
Hopefully I can have that
same connection with my
boy.
Until then, I will cherish
what dad has taught me and
allow the thought that who I
am today and the writer I
have become has something
to do with his passion ,
because although sports is not
his life, it has become so
much a part of mine.


Youngsters
battle for

year's 3v3
Super
Soccer
Challenge
played at

Park.
Teams are
vying for a
spot in the

FROM STAFF
Hundreds of young soccer
players are expected to take
the pitch at Davis Park next
weekend as the 3v3 Super
Soccer Challenge returns to
Ponte Vedra Beach.
Last year's Super Challenge
drew teams from as far away as
Key West, Sarasota and
Savannah but the majority of
teams were from Northeast
Florida including many from
the Beaches area.
The event featured groups of
kids in three-on-three competi-
tion on small fields. Teams
play without a goalkeeper,
although a defender can drift
back in an effort to block shots
with his or her feet.
Play is slated to begin June
23 with finals planned the fol-
lowing day. The event was
originally scheduled for June 2-
3, but heavy rain rendered
fields unplayable.
The two-day event serves as a
national qualifier with winners
earning a chance to participate
in the national 3v3 champi-
onships at Disney's Wide
World of Sports complex just
outside Orlando July 27-29.
Age-group competition is
scheduled for Saturday and
Sunday with as many as 15
game being played simultane-
ously on the scaled-down soc-
cer fields. For teams with play-
ers 8 years old and under, the
fields measured 30 yards by 20
yards. Older age divisions play
on fields that are 40 yards long
and 30 yards wide.
Games are divided into two
12-minute halves, with a two-
minute halftime break. Up to
six players are allowed on each
team, and substitutions are
made during stops in play.
The game tests individual
skills such as passing and drib-
bling in traffic. With plenty of
open space, teamwork is essen-
tial on defense.

able at Web site www.3v3chal-
lenge.com.


Rich get richer by adding Junior


new sports dynasty has
arrived.

In fact, this dynasty is
already running strong, yet by
next season, it will be just that
much more powerful.
I'm not talking about the
New England Patriots; I'm talk-
ing about Hendricks
Motorsports.
While the team already
fields four-time champion Jeff
Gordon and defending cham-
pion Jimmie Johnson, it gets
ready to add possibly the
biggest name in the sport -
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
"How is that fair?" other
teams must be asking. How
can a team that's already won
10 of the 14 races this season
get the sport's biggest star?
How can a team that won nine
races in a 10-race stretch earli-
er this season pick up the guy


7


DAVID
ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

who's fourth in most races
won since 2000 (only Gordon,
Johnson and Tony Stewart
have more wins)?
What happened to those
words Rick Hendrick spoke
almost a month ago, you
know, the "There's no room at


the inn" line?
This is like the Lakers draft-
ing LeBron James while having
Shaq and Kobe Bryant on
board. This is the Dallas
Cowboys of the 1990s picking
up Ricky Williams and Peyton
Manning to back up Emmitt
Smith and Troy Aikman. This
is the New York Yankees.
On Wednesday, Junior
announced he had signed with
Hendrick, a move most
thought was the most likely.
For Junior fans though, this
has got to be weird.
How can you imagine your
racing hero on the same team
as your racing villain, Gordon?
Tony Stewart fans don't chuck
beer bottles at Gordon.
Earnhardt fans chuck beer at
the Rainbow Warrior. Now
they're teammates. Go figure.
So what's next in line for
NASCAR, a sport that's already
so overly dominated by


Surprise move: Jaguars

As organized team activities
wrapped up Thursday, the
Jacksonville Jaguars cut veteran
safety Donovin Darius who

August, suffered a broken leg
against the New York Giants
during week 11 last year. He
missed 14 games in 2005 after
tearing an anterior cruciate lig-
ament in his knee.
The 6'1", 225-pound safety
started more games than any
other defensive player in
Jaguars' history. His 858 career
tackles (553 solo) put Darius at
the top of the list in franchise
history.
With the Jaguars selecting
former Florida Gator Reggie
Nelson in the first round of
this year's NFL Draft, then tab-
bing Josh Gattis in the fifth
round, the team was clearly
looking at a youth movement
in the defensive backfield.
"We have elected to release
Donovin Darius," head coach


Jack Del Rio said following
Thursday morning's practice.
"Donovin Darius is an out-
standing human being. He's
been an excellent player for us.
He's tremendous in the com-
munity. He's a classy guy. I met
with him this morning and
told him these things.
"He was a ferocious center-
fielder for us for a number of
years .. We have elected at
this time as an organization to
move forward and to allow him
to pursue other opportunities."
This offseason, Darius was
named to NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell's players adviso-
ry committee after serving as
the vice president of the NFL
Players Association and the
Jaguars' players representative
for four years.

Shirt and tie suits him
Del Rio will be a sharp-
dressed man at Jacksonville
Municipal Stadium this fall.
The NFL has granted Del Rio
and San Francisco 49ers head
coach Mike Nolan permission
to wear suits and ties for all


eight of their teams' regular-sea-
son home games this year.
Last season, the league
allowed Del Rio and Nolan to
suit up for only two games. But
Goodell said Wednesday the
more formal attire will be per-
mitted throughout the season.
Under a licensing agreement
with Reebok, the league deter-
mines what apparel can be worn
by players and coaches on the
sideline. The company provides
the clothing everything from
the black suit Del Rio donned
last season to the hoodie-style
sweatshirts preferred by New
England Patriots coach Bill
Belichick.
In other Jaguars news, quar-
terbacks Byron Leftwich and
David Garrard seemed to be tak-
ing in stride word that the team
is interested in acquiring
Daunte Culpepper.
"They told me they were
looking at [Culpepper] but that
it wouldn't affect my status,"
Garrard told reporters. "When
you have a chance to get a play-
er like him, it never hurts to
look."


Hendrick already that races are
becoming more predictable
than the Belmont Stakes?
Kyle Busch, who drives the
No. 5 car for the team, is being
released from his contract to
make room for Earnhardt. Is it
just a coincidence that
Eamhardt happened to jump
in Busch's car at a race in
Texas earlier this season, or
was that the sign of things to
come?
And then there's the mer-
chandise. I imagine Hendrick
will try to negotiate with Dale
Earnhardt Inc. honcho Theresa
Earnhardt in allowing Junior
to use the No. 8 he's made oh
so big. Then again, we've all
seen what negotiating with
Ms. Eamhardt can lead to, so
the hopes shouldn't be too
high.
As for Budweiser, everyone
expects them to still sponsor
the same driver they've spon-


scored for the last seven years.
After all, what's a Bud com-
mercial without Junior?
The only thing I wonder is,
should Junior sport, say, a No.
5 on his car when the series
heads to Daytona Internation-
al Speedway at the start of
2008, does all my No. 8 stuff
suddenly become worthless?
Trying to imagine Dale
Earnhardt Jr. associated with
another number other than
eight is like turning on the
Muppets and seeing Kermit
the Lizard. It wouldn't seem
right.
But when he finally starts
winning more (despite the lit-
tle fact mentioned earlier
about wins he achieved with
his current team), then the
change for fans will be just
fine.
Then the only No. 8 he'll
have to focus on is champi-
onships.

AGood vibrations? Fitness industry thinks soa

Good vibrations.? Fitness industry thinks s


new type of fitness
machine, the Power
Plate, is gaining popular-
ity across the country.
The machine shakes your
body, reportedly using vibra-
tions to tone muscle and
claims that it can tone it faster
than traditional strengthening
methods. Even NASA is look-
ing into claims that it can pre-
vent and reverse osteoporosis
as well as reduce muscle atro-
phy which occurs during space
travel.
Manufacturers claim that
the vibrations allow for a
quicker workout with similar
effects, claiming a complete
workout in two-thirds the
time.
The Power Plate vibrates 20
to 50 times per second in
three directions, increasing g-
forces on the body, according
to the Northbrook, Illinois-
based company of the same
name.
The company says the vibra-


Y

SMITH, M.D.

tions raise the effectiveness of
lunges, squats and other exer-
cises done while standing on
it. It is not specifically an aero-
bic exercise machine like a
treadmill or elliptical trainer.
Power Plate sells models for
home and gym at prices rang-
ing from $3,000 to $10,500.
However, not everyone is in
love with the idea just yet.


Some researchers warn of
possible injuries such as back
pain, cartilage damage and
possible brain damage from a
jiggling of the brain. Others
compare them to the belt
vibrators of 50 years ago
which fell out of favor.
Other .companies such as
Soloflex are also getting into
the vibrational market.
Soloflex has sold more than
30,000 of its $295 vibrating,
skateboard-like, handle-free
platforms in less than three
years, said Jerry Wilson, the
Hillsboro, Oregon-based com-
pany's CEO and founder.
A study at NASA's Johnson
Space Center has shown that
the use of a vibration platform
during exercise squats does
make muscles work more.
"Vibration works .. but we're
still trying to figure out how
to use it best and I think we're
a number of years away before
we do that," said Bill
Amonette, one of the study
authors and a fitness expert at


the University of Houston.
However, while Clinton
Rubin, a biomedical engineer-
ing professor at State
University of New York at
Stony Brook, feels that positive
effects on the musculoskeletal
system may be noted, he also
believes the Power Plate's
vibration levels could cause
back pain, cartilage damage,
blurred vision, hearing loss
and even brain damage.
Power Plate warns pregnant
women and people with reti-
nal detachment, blood clots,
bone tumors and other med-
ical conditions not to use the
machines and it is recom-
mended that it not be used
more than thirty minutes per
day.

Sports Cream Tragedy
Nearly every athlete has had
muscle soreness at some time
after activity. And most have
rubbed on some form of sports
cream to help relieve those
sore muscles.


I would imagine that no one
ever assumed that this could
be a dangerous activity -
until now.
Arielle Newman, a 17-year-
old high school track star died
from an accidental overdose of
methyl salicylate, the winter-
green-scented ingredient
found in liniments like
BenGay, Icy Hot and Tiger
Balm, the New York City med-
ical examiner's office said last
week.
The death was the first of its
kind authorities have said.
Physicians state that this
tragedy points to a need for
clearer warnings about risks of
over the counter medication,
because muscle creams are so
widely used across the coun-
try.
Dr. Thomas Kearney, profes-
sor of pharmacy at the
University of California at San
Franfcisco reported that topical
application of methyl salicy-
late can be hazardous if it is
smeared over 40 percent of the


body, if someone has a skin
condition, or if another med-
ication interacts negatively
with the products.
Johnson & Johnson, the
maker of BenGay, expressed
sympathy to the Newman
family and said in a statement
that the product "is safe and
effective when used as directed
to provide relief from arthritis
pain, sore, aching and strained
muscles and backaches."

Quintal brothers enjoy success



in surfing and skateboarding


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
"Work hard, play hard" is
the motto for the Quintal fam-
ily of Neptune Beach. And on
this Father's Day weekend
Mike Quintal is the proud
papa of his sons, Justin and
Dane.
Justin, 17, is a professional
longboard surfer and Dane,
14, is successful on the local
skateboarding scene while
maintaining honor roll grades
at Fletcher High and Fletcher
Middle, respectively. Their par-
ents, Mike and Kimberly, run a
franchise of Blue Haven pools
and take their motto to heart
surfing around the world in
Hawaii, Tahiti, Mexico,
California and up and down
the East Coast.
"We have a blast together
but it's like I always tell them,
'You do what you're supposed
to do and do well in school
and we can have a lot of fun
together,'" Mike Quintal said.
"It's no fun if you have to
focus on getting on track. You
stay on track and do things
right and then we can have
some fun. We work hard and
we play hard."
Justin Quintal will be enter-
ing his senior year at Fletcher
High and is spending the sum-
mer working for Sunrise Surf
camps, applying to colleges
and preparing for his first
appearance as a pro surfer in
the United
States Open of
Surfing July .
21-29 at
Huntington
Beach Pier,
Calif.
Last year as
an amateur,
Justin finished
sixth overall
in the
Longboard .
Magazine Pro
Tour and was ..
No. 1 on the
East Coast.
He recently
applied to
turn pro
through the
Association of
Surfing
Pi"6fessionals
[ASP] and was
accepted Surf
[longboarders C l
do not have a
World CUM
Qualifying
Series (WQS)
as do shortboarders].
"Basically you should have a
decent amateur career and

U


they'll give you membership
so you can enter ASP contests,
get points on
how you place
in the contests
and hopefully
make some
money," Justin
said.
"I just fig-
ured I was
ready."
Mike
Quintal said
both his sons
have been in
the water on
- boogie boards
since they
i:. were toddlers
and by the
time they were
four years old
he was push-
ing them into
wave's b'siUrf-'
boards.
"They always
loved the water
either in the
pool or in the
ocean," said
Mike. "We all
still surf together but Dane got
more into skateboarding and
that is what drives him.


"Justin skates too but only if
there's no waves."
Dane finished Fletcher
Middle with honors and will
be entering his freshman year
at Fletcher High. He skates for
Skatelab skate team and
recently finished second in the
Cocoa Beach Bowl Riders Cup,
and the bowl contest at the
Atlantic Beach Skate Park.
Although their mom,
Kimberly, doesn't surf or skate,
she is involved with her
, board riding boys. She is
known for the breakfast burri-
tos she prepares for competi-
tors and judges before contests
and she has volunteered as
beach marshal during check-
ins of local contests over the
years.
"She'll get up early and
make like 500 burritos for the
volunteers and competitors.
And 'in the winter she'll'bring
a turkey fryer and scoop out
homemade chicken noodle
soup," Mike said. "She always
keeps everyone fed and things
running smoothly."
Mike grew up surfing and
skateboarding in Imperial
Beach, Calif. He and
Kimberly, who just celebrated
their 25th wedding anniver-


sary, moved to Neptune Beach
four years ago from Satellite
Beach, Fla. Mike said they relo-
cated to Florida for the pool
business and opened the first
Blue Haven franchise in
Jacksonville.
Justin didn't start surfing in
contests until he was about 11
years old. Mike Quintal said a
board shop owner in Satellite
Beach saw Justin surfing and
wanted to sponsor him but to
do so he asked him to enter
contests.
"I always loved surfing but I
didn't realize what a big thing
it could be," Justin said. "My
dad was always bringing me
with them traveling surfing
and giving me good advice as
far as surfing and not surfing
and seeing all the different
types of surfing. That definite-
ly helps."
Jutstin, who is also a success-
ful shortboarder, said one of
his greatest surfing influences
is Tom Curren, a three-time
world surfing champion [1985,
1986 and 1990].
"He rode all different kinds
of boards, and me and my dad
would watch videos and
search for Curren footage,"
Justin said.
"I thought it was really cool
to ride any type of board so I
started surfing any board I
could get my hands on.,
Overall it helped me out a
lot."
Aside from their surfing and
skating accomplishments,
Mike Quintal said he has many
proud moments as a father.
Memories that -stick out in his
mind are when Dane won the
fifth grade spelling bee and
Justin's heartfelt speech after
September 11 at a church in
Hilton Head, S.C.
Quintal said he is most
proud of his boys on Father's
Day and every day for being
good people.
"They keep me proud
because they are good-hearted
kids," Mike Quintal said.
"They are honest, they have a
high level of integrity and
they care about their fellow
man.
"And we do have a lot of
fun together."

'Ocean s 13' better than other two


D director Steven
3So.derbergh recently
said that his new
"Ocean's Eleven" sequel
should be titled "Ocean's
Thirteen: The One We Should
Have Made.Last Time."
I'll go one better:
"Ocean's Thirteen" is better
than the other two "Ocean"
movies combined.
"Ocean's Thirteen" is actual-
ly about something besides
just George Clooney and Brad
Pitt's frat-boy antics.
(In fact, happily, the pair
ditch their "Let's show how
cool we are by finishing each
other's sentences" routine
early on here.)
It helps that our heroes' lat-
est scam has something at
stake.
It seems that nice guy.
Reuben (Elliott Gould), against
Our Boys' advice, has invested
all of his money in a 50/50
partnership for a new casino
with Las Vegas magnate Willy


STEVE
BAILEY
REVIEWER


Bank (Al Pacino).
But at the 11th hour, Willy
takes Reuben's cash and
elbows him out of the deal,
leaving Reuben to quite liter-
ally nearly die of a broken
heart.
Naturally, there's only one
thing for Danny Ocean
(Clooney) and his gang to do:
See to it that Willy's casino *
folds shortly after its much-


publicized debut: Because after
all, how hard can it be to
make a casino go bust on its
opening night?
Naturally, there's a lot of
inside jargon involved.
(Although the term is much
bandied-about here, I still
couldn't tell you what a "Billy
Martin" is.) And I'd guess that
the owners of real-life Vegas
gambling pits are laughing
themselves silly at the techni-
cal howlers this movie makes.
But since Reuben is the
movie's Everyman, there's a
lot of fun in seeing his sup-
porters give Willy his comeup-
pance.
And it's fascinating to see
the every angle that they
cover in order to do it.
(My favorite scheme
involves David Paymer as a
harried hotel reviewer who,
most assuredly, will not give
Willy his desired five-star rat-
ing.) The movie has only two
conspicuous defects. The first


Some petunias can take heat


It's June and that means
I'm in New Hampshire in
my little piece of heaven:
an old family cabin that sits
on a pristine lake.
It has indoor plumbing
and electricity but no televi-
sion, no computer,and noth-
ing to distract me except for
the goldfinches and loons,
and maybe an occasional
black bear.
Therefore, I am trying to
think ahead to questions
you may have, or things
that might crop up while
I'm on vacation.
Question: My pansies,
snapdragons and even petu-
nias I planted in late April
are all dying. Should I pull
them out or will they grow
back?
Answer: These plants are
not suited for our summer
heat and they will die back.
Sometimes they will come
back when the weather
turns quite cool, December
and January, but then the
nurseries are usually selling
greenhouse grown ones very
inexpensively.
If you do not want to pull
them out then I suggest you
cut theT way back, close to
the ground and forget about
them all summer., If you fer-
tilize them in the fall, per-
haps they will return. Keep

in my mind that if we get
the usual heavy summer
rains, anything that is in its
dying/slow stage will be
more prone ot fungus prob-
lems.
If you do not want to
leave them in the garden
but do not want to replace
them with summer flowers,
then just remove them and
put some dirt of mulch over
the bare spot.
FYI: the wave series of
petunias that I have men-
tioned at other times are
supposed to last nicely
though the summer's heat.
Question: Is it too late to
plant plumbago, lantana,
crape myrtle, firebrush, but-


terfly weed, etc. for summer
color?
Answer: Typically, I would
say no, it is not too late.
However, I am hesitant to
recommend doing this now
because it is so dry and hot.
You would need to water
these plants every day at
ground level to get their
roots established, and even
so, all summer they would
be fighting the weather.
If they made it through
this summer, next year they
would be fine but since this
year has been so dry and so
hot, coupled with watering
restrictions, you might not
want to wage the battle.
I have had problems get-
ting a few bushes of lantana
to really take a firm hold
and that plant is pretty
much a no-brainer.
One caveat to this is to
plant them in containers
where you have an easier
way of monitoring them
and there are no watering
restrictions for plants in
containers, if you do this
you coupled transplant the
bush into the garden next
spring.
Question: What are the
enormous spiders that make

debit is that like the first two
movies this one is such a
"men's club" that females get
short shrift.
Ellen Barkin plays Willy's
go-to person, and from the
ditzy routine she does here,
you'd never guess that she and
Pacino made sparks together
nearly two decades ago in"
Sea of Love ."
(The second error in judg-
ment decidedly more minor
- is that no movie should ever
try to convince us that George
Clooney tears up while watch-
ing "The Oprah Winfrey
Show.")
Other than that, this is
probably the summer's most
fun popcorn movie.
Let's hope the cool-guy saga
ends here, and not with
"Ocean's Fourteen: We Should
Have Quit When We Were
Ahead."
"Ocean's Thirteen" is rated
PG-13 for adult language and
situations.


Fishing

subject


I by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
The quaint fishing village
of Mayport, with its 19th-cen-
tury lighthouse, rustic wood-
en docks and ubiquitous
shrimp boats, is the subject of
two art exhibits this summer.
"Mayport, Now and Then,"
a collection of works by the
Neptune Arts Group, opens
today at South Beach
I Gallery/Atlantic Custom
Frames in Jacksonville Beach.
"Mayport: A disappearing
fishing village," photography
of Carl Miller, opens July 2 at
First Street Gallery in
Neptune Beach.
As landmarks fall by the
wayside at Mayport, local
artists are beating a path to
the village to document what
is left and what's been lost to
development.
"It's inspired many of them
to go there before it changes
much more," said Debbie
Dellinger of Atlantic Custom
Frames,, 1250 Beach Blvd.
In 1992, Claire Morin of
Atlantic Beach took a photo
of an old shrimp boat tied up
at a broken-down fishing
dock in Mayport.
She painted the image as a
watercolor and called it "dere-
licts." Morin sold that paint-
ing but has painted another
-one like it for the exhibit.
"It's rapidly changing down
there," said Morin, a member
of the Neptune Arts Group,
whose artists hang their work
as a group every few months.
Miller, who specializes in
digital photography, will
exhibit both color and black-
and-white images for
*"Mayport: A disappearing
fishing village."
The show runs July 2 to
Sept. 3, at 216-B 1st St.,
Neptune Beach.
Miller has spent the past
year photographing the vil-
lage and rubbing elbows with
its inhabitants.
"Everyone has been so
cooperative to having, their
picture taken," Miller said.
"Originally, I thought I was
just going to take pictures of
buildings and boats, but I
ended up taking a lot of por-
traits of people. That's what
Mayport really is."
First Street hosted a previ-
ous exhibit of Miller's work in
2005.

Russian icon paintings at Cummer Museum


ou do not have to go far
this summer to see some
of the world's great art
because one area museum
brings it to us.
The Cummer Museum of
Art & Gardens opened a fasci-
nating and important new
exhibit this week: "Tradition
in Transition: Russian Icons
in the Age of the
Romanovs."
This important collection of
works was organized by the
Hillwood Museum and
Gardens in collaboration with
the Steinhardt-Sherlock Trust
Tour by International Arts and
Artists, Washington, D.C.
We are privileged to have it
available to us in our own
city. The exhibition encom-
passes 45 works created dur-
ing the age of the Romanovs
(1613-1917) and explores the
interplay between Western
culture and uniquely Russian
traditions in icon painting.
Icons created for every seg-
ment of the population are
included in this presentation
from unique jeweled exam-
ples created for the Imperial
family to those massed pro-
duced for the poorest peas-
ants.
Icons were considered spiri-
tual windows to Heaven. This
exhibition's examples, drawn
from the collection of the
Hillwood Museum and
Gardens, reveals visual tradi-
tions in flux as a result of
conflicting religious and polit-
ical changes in Russia.
Founder Marjorie
Meriweather Post, heir to the
Post cereal fortune and an
avid collector of Russian luxu-
ry goods, formed the core of
Hillwood's collection. A vari-
ety of handmade icons,
Faberge-style egg pendants,
and Baltic amber jewelry will
be available in the museum
store.
Don't forget the "Especially
for Seniors Talks and Tea" at
1:30 p.m. Wednesday and
Thursday, June 20 and 21, at
the Cummer. Pre-registration
is required as seating is limit-
ed. Refreshments follow the '
lecture. Call'3^5-0630.

Another important event
will take place at 8 p.m.
Thursday, June 21, when the
Amelia Island Chamber Music
Festival presents a music pro-
gram called "Pictures at an
Exhibition." A suite of 10
piano pieces will be paired
with works from the
Cummer's permanent collec-
tion. This special event will
begin at 8 p.m.

The University of North
Florida's Department of
English will present an
evening of one-act plays cele-
brating the African-American
experience on Saturday, June
23, and Sunday, June 24.
The plays will be staged at
7:30 p.m. in the John E.
Matthews Jr. Computer
Science Building, Room 1303.
The production is free and
open to the public.
The two plays being pre-
sented are "Day of Absence"
by Douglas Turner Ward and
"Sally's Rape" by Robbie
McCauley. In his witty satire,
Ward appropriates the
American minstrel tradition,


turning it upside down as
black actors wearing white
face parody small town
Southern bigotry.
In her performance piece,
"Sally's Rape," McCauley finds
the voices of her foremothers
to.reveal the use of rape as a
tool of oppression. This play


is a dramatic reckoning with
the personal, familial and col-
lective past.
The cast features both UNF
students and members of'the
Jacksonville community. The
performances are for mature
audiences. For more informa-
tion, call 620-2273.

'Mame' the movie due out on DVD June 19


The famous line from the
musical "Maine" goes, "Life is a

Yep, and if they indulge in
the excess of the 1974 movie

Prepare to paint your hom


Dear Jane,
My home's exterior needs a
paint job. Is that something I
can do myself?
Elizabeth Wycoff
Yes! Painting your home is
something you can do your-
self, but before you roll out
that,drop cloth and,.ta uW_
thatridder, t ale a hard Uool
hat theiffufac,, ie y.about to
cover up: Is it properly pre-
pared for a new coat of paint?
The key is to make sure the
surface underneath your new
paint is clean, smooth and
sealed. Here's what you'll
need to get started:

Tools:
Pressure washer
Putty knife
Scrub brush
Ladder
Paint Scraper
Supplies:
Sandpaper (#100 grit)
Exterior grade patching
compound
Exterior primer
Exterior caulking
Blue painter's tape
Disposable painting tarps
Bleach (if needed, for
removing mildew)
Tri-sodium Phosphate (for
heavily soiled walls)
Disposable gloves
Household cleaner
Paint
Let's look at some tech-
niques you'll want to use to
make'sure your new paint job
is one that will last for years
to come:
Step 1
Consider renting a pressure
washer from your local tool
center. Donning protective
eyewear, hook up the hose,
and start scouring every inch


HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'

of surface with a blast of pres-
surized water that'll remove
most of the grime in a jiffy.
With a swath of water shoot-
ing out at a pressure of over
1,000 lbs. per square inch
(your shower is typically well
under 80), it's a bit like wash-
ing your car with a fire hose.
But it's incredibly fast and
thorough; it'll even tear off
loose peeling paint. Be care-
ful, because all that power can
also rip off awnings, shingles
and other stuff you'd. just as
soon not replace.
Another great way to
remove old paint is by using a
power paint stripper. If you've
got more time than money,
you can also use 4a garden
hose with a scrub brush and
tri-sodium phosphate. If you
have no other issues to
resolve, give it at least 8-10
hours of drying time before
. applying any primer or paint.
Step 2
If you've got cracks, holes or
gouges, now is the time to
take care of them. Using a
putty knife and some exterior
grade patching compound
(it's spackle for the outside of


PXrT TAI


help hide it.
Step 3
Once all ot your surface
holes and peeling paint are
patched and sanded, cover
any repairs with an exterior
quality primer to protect the
underlying wood.

Step 4
You'll now want to be sure
you cover any areas you want.
to avoid splattering with
paint. This might include the
windows, doors, sconces,
trim, plants, walkways and.
driveways. Remember, for
ease of removal, use blue
painter's tape when masking.
Old newspaper can be used to.
cover expanses of windows,
screens and doors and you
can use inexpensive dispos-
able drop cloths for walkways
and hedges.
You are now officially ready
to paint. Preparation is
absolutely essential to a qualir
ty job. Professional painters
often spend more time on.
preparation than actual paint-
ing, so know that this will be
time well spent. After all, A.
few hours of preparation can
mean a few extra years on the
life of.your paint job.
Good luck!
Hugs n' hammers,
Jane

Weekend 8 The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader June 15, 2007












The return of the white kitchen


The white kitchen was
extremely popular for
about 10 to 15 years way
back in the '90s and '80s.
However, in the years since
the turn of the millennium,
the white kitchen fell out of
favor and took a decidedly
back seat to stained wood. Yet
the versatility of a white
kitchen with it's clean appeal
and soothing look has never
really gone away. Instead, the
white kitchen is making a
return with some new twists
that make it look fresher, up
to date and more appealing
than ever.
White vs. white
The first place to change in
the white kitchen is the kind
of white used on the cabinets.
White is no longer just white.
Now, white cabinets range in
whiteness from bright white
to antiqued white. Both look
fresh and current, but with a
different appeal. If the bright
white kitchen appeals to you,
then the whiteness, just like it
was in the '80s and '90s, is the
key.
Sheer white cabinets look
especially good in vintage-
style kitchens. White cabinets
with Craftsman-style frames
look beautiful in bright white.
Cabinets with old-fashioned
cup-style drawer pulls make a.
beautiful pairing. Add the
nostalgia of white marble
countertops and you have a
winning combination. To
keep the kitchen extra vin-
tage-looking, have appliances
such as the dishwasher and
refrigerator dressed with cabi-
net doors; this will make them
blend into the kitchen and
not detract from the look. But
if a fresher, more current style
is what you're after, add shiny
stainless appliances and your
kitchen will be up-to-the-
moment gorgeous with a


I
KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST


slight contemporary feel.
It's this pairing of stainless
with white that creates a nice
contrast of color with sparkle.
Having stainless appliances
with white cabinets makes the
white kitchen up to date ver-
sus the monochromatic and
dated look of white cabinets
with white appliances. If you
have a white kitchen in need
of updating, adding new
stainless appliance might be
all it takes to bring your
kitchen out of the '90s and
'80s and into the 200's.
White with color
Another way to update that
all-white kitchen is to add a
touch of color to your cabi-
nets. If you have an all-white
kitchen and a white island,
consider replacing the island
with a wood cabinet island or
simply paint the island a con-
trasting color. Another distin-
guishing feature of the white
kitchens of today is the atten-
tion to detail. Cabinets today
have more detail and much,
much more moulding. The

the top of older cabinets is an
inexpensive option that will

White kitchens are gor-
geous. If a new kitchen is in
your remodeling plans, con-
sider a white kitchen for their


overall appeal and interest.
And, ,if you're updating a
white kitchen, simply creating
more attention to detail -
such as adding new pulls,
changing old solid surface and
laminate counters to natural
stone, adding mouldings, and
some color can make about
a 20-year difference in the


look of your kitchen.

RECYCLE Discarded roll-on
deodorant containers make an excel-
lent insect repellant applicator. It
enables you to keep "bug spray" off
your hands and out of your eyes.
Snap off the plastic top or snap out
the ball, rinse out the bottle and
refill With your favorite liquid insect
repellant. Blair K.
MORE RECYCLING Make throw
MORE RECYCLING Make throw


pillows out of your child's favorite
outgrown shirts and/or baby clothes.
Simply turn the garment inside out
and sew up all openings, leaving a
few inches which you will insert
stuffing through. Next, turn the gar-
ment right side out and stuff it with
old nylons. Then sew that opening
shut. This makes a cute throw pillow
for your child's room. Edna L.
DISINFECT Put your sponges in
your dishwasher every few days, and


dispose of them every few weeks.
They breed germs because they do
not get the opportunity to dry out in
between uses. I have a cousin who
treats her sponges in some sort of
chemical she buys at a discount store
which is supposed to get rid of
odors. While that may be true, it
doesn't get rid of all the bacteria in
the sponge. Remember, replace your
sponges as noted in this tip, and you
can save your family from getting
sick. Kyra B.


WASTE NOT When you're hav-'
ing a picnic or party, use small
plates. Using large plates will only
encourage people to fill them, taking
more than they can eat, thus increas-
ing waste. Smaller plates are easier to
handle and walk with, and also find
easier places to set them down.
Alexis D.
COOL IT To keep your house
cool while using the air conditioner,


try this: Keep your windows shut as
tightly as possible. Locking them will
make the seal tighter. Also, when the
sun is on the windows, keep your
shades and curtains closed. A darker
house is always cooler. Jack K.

Be Complete: Put yourself in the
reader's place. If you were consider-
ing buying this item, what would
you want to know about it? Give the
item's age, condition, size, brand
name and any other information
needed to descibe it accurately and
completely.

helps you avoid inquiries from
callers not in your price range.
Be Available: List your telephone
number or address so the potential
buyer will know how to contact
you. State the best hours to call so
they'll know when they can reach
you. If you're not home when an
interested prospect calls, the
chances are that prospect will not
call back
