Plantation works to r


A ceremonial groundbreaking for a
new cart barn and pro shop was held
recently at the Plantation at Ponte
Vedra, nearly three years after a fire
destroyed the development's cart barn.
The Plantation's original cart barn
burned down Aug. 28, 2004. The blaze
also destroyed the golf club's phone sys-
tem and electrical system.
Participants in the groundbreaking
were Bob Rowe, chairman of the
Plantation's capital projects committee;
Bob Carithers, president of its board of
directors; Walther Vliegen, general man-
ager of the Plantation, standing in for
Rick Davis, vice president of the board of
directors; Carey Elam, owner of House &
Home Inc., the builder, and club profes-
sional Nancy Maunder.
"The timetable is, to complete this
building, about April 1 of 2008," Rowe
said before the ceremony. "It's going to

be a pro-shop ah d cart barn state of
the art."
It also will be built to minimize any
damage from fire.
"It's a poured-in-place concrete build-
ing with a fire suppression system," said
Rowe. "We don't want to do this again."
Carithers, in remarks following the
groundbreaking June 21, brought those
in the audience up to date.
"At 10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28 [2004],
everything was destroyed in the cart
barn. That was 1,028 days ago," said
"We lost 40 golf carts, 30 golf bags. We
lost a quarter of a million dollars. The
first member-guest dinner-dance was
held in the old cart barn in 1989.
"This is just the beginning of a lot of
wonderful things that are going to hap-
pen at the Plantation."
Carithers introduced Rowe as the driv-
ing force behind the construction

City water has value to both
wallet and the human body

People often go to great
lengths to purchase bottled
spring water or install soften-
ing systems in their home to
ensure the water they con-
sume is of the highest grade.
At the Beaches, getting a
glass of top quality water is as
easy as turning on the faucet,
according to the city of
Jacksonville Beach's water
plant operator, John Birch.
There are some common
misconceptions regarding
the safety of distilled or
spring water versus tap water,
Birch said.
"Historically our water
quality is hard to complain
about as far as I'm con-
cerned," Birch said of the
city's drinking water. "I pay

safe for consumption, the

Condo colors need some attention

To the editor:
Who's in charge of approving
the colors of the condos being
built? Well I have complaint
about a certain "GOD" awful
blue one at the north end. This
Blue one is around the 12th or
13th Ave and 1st Street North
that does NOT blend in with
the skyline of condo buildings
at the north end.

The rest of the condos are
mostly a Sand or Dark Sand
color and then there is this Blue
one that sticks out like a sore
thumb. Can something be done
about it? This NOT Miami or
Mickey Mouse Land!
North Jax Beach

Ocean on the east no help to some

To the editor:
After the fireworks display
at Jax Beach I can't believe all
the people I saw driving
around in a circle thinking
that they knew where they
were going. They got off of
3rd Street to try and -avoid
traffic and got on 4th Street
North and from there just
drove around in circles. Don't
you people know your sense

of direction, the ocean is
I tried to offer directions
but men will never admit that
they are lost. And the rest of
them were so rude and drunk
I left and went upstairs. I was

Vandals a repeated woe in west AB One size fits all
pet rules

To the editor:
My house in West Atlantic
Beach has been vandalized six
times in the past week and
the City of Atlantic Beach
Police Department seems to
be understaffed to do any-
thing about issues west of
Seminole Road. The police
were called, a report was
made and nothing was done.
These criminals have deter-
mined that they can get away
witih it and it now has become with then. They are
continuingg their game
because they can, and sadly,
nothing will happen to them.

Once again the victim is
placed in a dilemma, play by
the rules and file reports
while nothing is done or take
care of it yourself. This prob-
lem is still ongoing. The AB
police have the names of the
neighborhood menacing
Why is this still going on?

November will place new
commissioners in office who

Ponte Vedra obvious name for school

To the editor:
I truly appreciate your wine
column in the Weekend
Section of The Leader. Very
causal and accurate informa-
l ion.
I also want to agree with
Mary Kohnke, for once. I
believe the new high school
should be the Ponte Vedra
I igh School. As a local high
school graduate and high
school athlete you don't want
to explain the location of
your school every time you
talk about your school. Also,
Tonte Vedra Beach is obvious-

ly a prime spot in Florida that
we all want to promote.
There have been a number of
people that, have helped our
communities and we might
name part of a university or
hospital or. the library or a
road for their efforts, but
Ponte Vedra Beach needs
recognition for their own
high school. I did not know
Mr. LeMaster, but it sounds
like he would not have want-
ed this much notoriety.

ed in the photo gallery. Right
there, on the home page in
plain view was a picture pro-
moting a very lawless act. There
was no attempt to make an
excuse for this action or even
an attempt to change the
names of the participants. Right
there before my eyes was a pic-
ture of a little girl playing with
a dog on the beach. The dog
was blatantly wearing no collar
or ID tags and was not tethered
to a leash of any kind! The fact.
that the newspaper would pro-
mote this kind of lawlessness is
very disappointing tq say, the
least.., ..
I hope oy now my cynicism is
very apparent but I hope to
prove my point. I have lived
here in the Beaches for 5 years
now. I have a dog and I find it
completely silly that we have
certain laws that prohibit dogs
from running on the beach. I
can understand limitations dur-
ing peak hours where there are
alot of people on the beach that
may be bothered by a overly

friendly dog. I have been
stopped on more than one
occasion at 6:30 or 7"30 in the
morning when the only people
on the beach are me and the
officer who obviously has noth-
ing better to do that early in the
I understand that it is unsafe
to have a 100 lb bull mastiff
running around children at 1
p.m. on a saturday, but what
harm could a 5 pound chi-
huahua do at 7 in the morning
on a Tuesday? Prohibiting all
pet owners from letting their
dogs run on the beach just
because there may be some
problems with some bigger
dogs is just like saying we
should make it illegal for every-
one to drive a car just because
there is a chance that someone
may drive a monster truck at
100 miles per hour down A1A.
Do we do this? No, we simply
set speed limits and other rules
for the road.
I, like many other Beaches
residents, pay a high price to
live close to the ocean and I like
to take a walk on the beach
now .and then before I go to
work. As a pet owner I feel

responsible to take my dog out
for exerCise. Even though I
know that it is against the law I
feel it is silly to keep my 7-lb
miniature rat terrier leashed so
that he can't run. I feel like a
criminal every time I unleash
him and act as a lookout for the
police while he chases sea foam.
I Implore our civic leaders to
reconsider the laws that prohib-
it us and our pets the freedom
to enjoy the Beaches. I know I
am not alone. I have met many
pet owners on the beach that
share my sentiment. Our law-
less band of pet owners often
act as lookouts for each other
and warn each other over zeal-
ous beach patrolers. Even if it is
only a few hours in the twilight
6f the d4A that"Wi.tld be great!
Then mavbe' -those' officers
could be doing something more
important than chasing down
dogs playing on the beach at 7
in the morning!
I know there are certainly
more important issues in
Atlantic Beach, but how about
throwing us pet lovers a bone?

Support the name LeMaster for new PV high school

To the editor:
My wife, Lynn, and I
strongly support the name of
Edward B. LeMaster for our
new high school in Ponte
Vedra and Palm Valley.
Ebbies's efforts to preserve,

protect, and enhance our
communities was second
only to the devotion he had
for his family. His knowledge,
strength, and integrity were
the hallmark of his commu-
nity activities for more than

40 years. What better stan-
dards could we have for our
new high school.

Taxpayer Bill of Rights is best plan available to all

To the editor,
There's been a lot of talk lately about hav-
ing charter government for St. Johns County.
It's not a bad idea, but if we're going to give
this power to our local government, we need
'protection against future politicians. The best
method of protection is the Taxpayer's Bill of
The Taxpayer's Bill. of Rights forces fiscal
responsibility on our politicians. It allows cit-
izens to have veto power over any tax
increase. It also ties government spending
increases to inflation and population growth.
Plus, if government somehow overtaxes us,
they're forced to refund the excess revenue to

the taxpayers. Most importantly, it forces our
government to set aside a 'rainy day' fund in
the event of a slowing economy.
This Bill of Rights has been enacted in local
governments around the country. The State
Legislature of Colorado enacted it as well.
With July 4th coming up, isn't it about time
that St. Johns County declared it's independ-
ence from the threat of high taxes and waste-
ful spending?

A theme of unity to the San Pablo Road community

Two local churches join together, marking new phase in their ministry to worship the God of the Bible

Two local churches have
reached an agreement to "work
together to worship the God of
the Bible," said Rev. R. Scott
Talley, Pastor of San Pablo
Baptist Church.
San Pablo Baptist Church
and Calvary Anglican Church
reached an agreement that
marks a new phase in their min-
istries. Beginning on July 1, the
two churches will share space
on the property of San Pablo
Baptist Church. The churches
will each hold separate Sunday
School classes and worship serv-
ices and join in a shared time of
While both churches will
retain their separate identities
and are not merging, they are
entering into an agreement to
share the use and the expenses
of San Pablo Baptist's property
at 3044 San Pablo Road, said
This cooperative effort, which
benefits both churches, presents
a "theme of unity to the San
Pablo Road community," he
The two churches began a
shared Wednesday evening
ministry offering Bible Study
and life enrichment programs
for children and adults at the
beginning of the summer. The
congregations from both
churches have dinner together
prior to the scheduled activities.
Each church is responsible for

the meal preparation on alter-
nate weeks.
Generally 50 or more people
come to the dinners and then
up to 100 people attend the
classes or study groups, said
Calvary Anglican was hold-
ing Sunday services at Sabal
Palm Elementary School. Their
pastor, Rev. David Sandifer,
then approached San Pablo
Baptist about the possibility of
also holding their Sunday wor-
ship there, he said.
Theologically there are few
distinctions between the two
churches, said Talley, who
described Calvary Anglican
Church as close in belief to
Southern Baptist churches. Both
share the belief that Scripture is
true and from God and that
their job is to convey the mes-
sage of God from Scripture to
people. "While Baptist and
Anglicans are not usually men-
tioned in the same breath, in
fact they do share a remarkable
amount of history. Much of the
early growth of Baptist churches
resulted from ministry of
Anglicans George Whitefield
and John Wesley...... Likewise,
Anglicans look to the examples
of Baptists like Williams Carey
and Adroniram Judson when it
comes to missions, and have
drawn deeply from the well of
Baptist preachers and teach-
ers...... While there are distinc-
tions between the two, com-

monalities as Evangelical
Christians are fundamental,"
according to a press release from
Calvary Anglican Church.
Formerly Calvary Episcopal
Church, Calvary Anglican with-
drew from the Episcopal
Diocese of Florida in 2005.
Shortly thereafter, Calvary left
its former location on San Pablo
Road. The church subsequently
held services at the University
of North Florida and at Sabal

Palm Elementary School.
Having Calvary's services
return to San Pablo Road
brings it back to where the
church's ministry began in
1989, according to the press
release. "We were so happy to
be in a place of worship," said
Calvary member Neese
Goodling who attended
Calvary's services last Sunday at
San Pablo Baptist.
"The Baptist people have been

so generous," she said.
Both churches worked
together, each adjusting their
time frame a little to accommo-
date each others needs on
Sunday mornings, said Zann
William, Chairman for
Outreach at Calvary Anglican.
They also plan to work
together on common needs,
such as additional office space
and improved signage on the
property, said Talley.

The churches held a Saturday
workday at San Pablo Baptist in
late June. About 40 people from
both congregations did general
maintenance and grounds work
on what turned out to be a very
hot day, said Williams.
"I'm very sure it pleases God
that we've come together to
spread his word and be good
stewards and use this wonderful
building," she said.

Anglers ready for kingfish tourney



fuels the



Most anyone who fol-
lows sports knows
that steroids and per-
formance-enhancing drugs
have stained the landscape.
Despite testing, the drugs
remain prevalent at the pro-
fessional and collegiate levels.
And here in the Sunshine
State, the Florida High School
Athletic Association will
implement random testing
beginning this fall.
Other than users, however,
probably few people realize
just how easy it is to obtain
steroids and other illegal per-
formance enhancers.
The Internet is a good (or
bad) place to start. A Google
search of the terms "buy
steroids online" brings back an
astonishing 2.4 million hits.
Many of the links are to
sites in Eastern Europe, former
Soviet Republics and Asia.
Almost all advertise in big
block letters, "WILL SHIP TO
Forget prescriptions, doctor's
supervision or medical consul-
tations, all that's required is a
valid credit card afid a mridinhg
address. Some offer to let cus-
tomers pay by money order
"to ensure anonymity." Swell.
Other selling points taken
directly from these sites: "Free
syringes and needles offer."
"We ensure that all packages
are shipped with maximum
discretion to ensure highest
delivery success." "You don't
need a prescription to order
and we ship worldwide."
"Proudly serving the body-
building community since
The sites also offer masking
agents to help steroid users
beat urine screenings.
To be sure, some of the Web
sites are scams credit card
numbers are given and drugs
never arrive, or vials full of
colored water are delivered -
but most are legitimate sellers
seeking repeat customers.
Quick reminder: Since the
revised Anabolic Steroid
Control Act of 2004 was
passed, possession of steroids
is a Class 1 felony punishable
by two years in federal prison
and a hefty fine. Sale and dis-
tribution of steroids can bring
a 14-year prison term.
While the. law has largely
stopped crooked doctors from
writing prescriptions for ath-
letes under their care, an unin-
tended consequence has been
development of a thriving
black market. It is estimated
that the sale of steroids and
other performance-enhancing
drugs has reached the $1 bil-
lion mark worldwide.
For those not willing to risk
being ripped off through
online transactions, a bur-
geoning steroid market exists
just south of the border.
Mexican pharmacies can fulfill
a juicer's every need. In
Tijuana, for example, there are
more than 200 farmacias in a
10-block area frequented by
tourists. Little bottles of
steroids line the shelves and
are among the best sellers.
The truly adventurous head
for "graneras," or shops that
sell veterinary steroids. These
are stronger forms of the drugs
not approved for use in
human beings.
Of course, getting them
back across the border is the
responsibility of the buyer, but
given the prevalence of drugs
in sports many have apparent-
ly succeeded.
Sadly, demand for steroids
remains high amongst athletes
and as the market clearly
demonstrates, where there is
demand, there will always be a
steady stream of supply.


The 27th Annual AT&T Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament takes
place July 16-21, 2007 at Sisters Creek
Park. The annual event is a long-standing
tradition and free event for residents of
the Jacksonville area. More than 1,000
boats will fish the week-long event for
over $500,000 in prizes.
Annually, the tournament attracts
approximately 30,000 spectators who
watch the weigh-in and enjoy the festiv-
ities. Favorite attractions include the
Food Festival, the KidZone, a free play
area for kids ages 3 to 14; the spacious
Liars' Tent, featuring live entertainment
and the Boatique exhibit area, offering a
variety of unique merchandise.
As in the past, the week-long festivities
will be capped off with a fabulous fire-
works display sponsored by the City of
Entertainment this year begins Friday
with a live DJ from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
under the Liar's Tent. At 8 p.m., singer

Keadie Higginbotham will perform, fol-
lowed by popular classic rock trio the
George Aspinall Band at 8:30 p.m.
Saturday's entertainment lineup
includes special guest Joey McLain and
music from the Swingin' Medallions.
The fireworks display is set for 10 p.m.
followed by more live music from the
Swingin' Medallions.
The Junior Angler Tournament is
scheduled for Tuesday, July 17, with a
captains' meeting July 16 at 7 p.m. If a
parent or guardian has entered the gen-
eral GJKT, kids can fish the junior event
for $10.
First-place prize is a 15-foot Carolina
Skiff JV15 with 25-h.p. Mercury engine
plus a Loadmaster trailer. Weigh-in on
Tuesday opens at 2 p.m.
Each participant will receive a t-shirt,
bag and rod/reel combo courtesy of Fish
Additionally, Captain Don Dingman,
of television's Hook the Future program,
will conduct an all-kids clinic on
Monday and Saturday of the tournament

The clinic is slated to include five sta-
tions for kids to participate in hands-on
activities. Each station is about 15 to 20
minutes in length and will cover cast net-
ting, fishing techniques, knot tying, fish-
ing ethics and casting.
The KidZone, which is open for several
hours each day during tournament week,
features water slides and bounce houses,
fishing for prizes, fish tac toe, make and
take arts and crafts, face painting, clowns
and more.
The GJKT now has two boat classifica-
tions, 23 Class and Ultra Class. All Boats
will compete for one of three "Big Fish"
prizes and each boat will also compete in
one of two divisions based upon the
Length Over All (L.O.A.) of the boat as
stated on the boat's state registration.
Boats not registered by a state govern-
ment agency may be subject to a physical
examination by the GJKT Rules
Committee. Boats must fish in the divi-
sion that is defined by the L.O.A. or
examination. A boat will compete in the

23 Class so long as the L.O.A. of the boat
does not exceed 23 feet 11 inches. A boat
will compete in the Ultra Class so long as
the L.O.A. of the boat is 24 feet or greater.
Boat classification changes may only be
made prior to the start of fishing on the
first day.
In addition to Big Fish prizes, the Ultra
and 23 Classes will be competing in an
aggregate format, which is designed to
reward skill as well as luck. Boats are
allowed to weigh one fish per day and
the total aggregate weight over the two
days of fishing will determine the win-
ners. Boats competing in either division
can win the Big Fish portion of the prize
This change is intended to keep the
anglers more aggressive on the second
day and keep the drama going until the
end of weigh-in on Friday. Boats may
only win one prize in these divisions. If a
boat places in more than one category, it
will automatically be sorted to the posi-
tion of greatest value. In any circum-
stances, only one prize will be awarded.

Kids learn discipline, respect through karate

July 6, 2007

Students bow to karate
instructor Master Rick Sixkiller
before working on techniques
and forms. Self-discipline and
respect are among the positive
characteristics learned at
Beaches Pak's Karate.
"I think the popularity with
martial arts is that parents are
finding out that it's not just
about self-defense," said
Sixkiller. "The focus, the self-
discipline, the fitness, the
camaraderie of the students,
the training. There are so
many aspects of it that devel-
op strong moral character."
Beaches Pak's Karate, locat-
ed at 13947 Beach Blvd.
[between San Pablo and
Hodges], is part of Pak's Karate
Academy. The traditional
Korean martial art of Tang Soo
Do, the art of open hand and
foot self-defense, is taught in
100 Pak's Academy schools
Grandmaster Song Ki Pak,
president of the United Soo

Federation headquarters in
Jacksonville at 1840 Blanding
"I was teaching karate to
the U.S. Army and Air Force
and one of my students who
sponsored me to immigrate to
the U.S. lived in Jacksonville,"
said Pak, who was born and
raised in South Korea and
began training in Tang Sod Do
when he was 12 years old.
"The most important things.
students learn are confidence,
respect and to keep in shape."

FREE Report Reveals How To

Unnecessary Interest Payments.

Homeowner's with substantial
credit card debts are missing
important savings opportunities
for failing to act immediately.'
Unknown to most financial
planners and CPA's, this FREE
Consumer Report reveals how to
save thousands in unnecessary
interest payments and finance
"Unbelievable", said one
homeowner, "I can't believe how
this simple little trick is able to
save me thousands of dollars a
year." Banks and credit card
companies hope you never read
this Report because they want to
keep charging you interest on a
balance that will take more than
30 years to pay off! Consumers
have been fooled by offers of low
teaser rates to induce them to
transfer balances, only to see
their rates double or triple a few
months later. This Report
explains how to avoid being
tricked by the tactics of these
large credit card companies and
how to turn the table so you get
the interest, not them.

Low cost outdoor family excursions

Today marks the halfway
point of summer vacation, when
bored children and their harried
parents may be looking for ideas
for family fun.
This summer may be particu-
larly an issue, because many
Florida schools are experiencing
their longest summer break in
recent history.
The extended break (14 weeks
in St. Johns schools, 12 weeks in
Duval) came about because of a
law restricting the school start
date to within two weeks of
Labor Day.
Students in St. Johns County,
whose last day was May 18,
return to school Aug. 24. Those
in Duval got out of school May
25 and return Aug. 20.

The following family activities
are scheduled in parks within
easy driving distance of the
Beaches. Most events have small
fees, and all take advantage of
the state's natural resources.
The mileage listed is based on
an Internet mapping site, with
Beach Boulevard, Jacksonville
Beach, as the starting point.

Road trip

Here are some things
the experts at AAA rec-
ommend you take care
of before setting out:
*Check all belts, hoses
and fluids. With the
engine off, look for worn
or cracked belts and
damaged or soft hoses.
*Check motor oil level
and condition. If you'll
be driving under extreme
conditions, such as very
hot temperatures or
while towing a heavy
trailer, you'll want to
switch to a motor oil
with higher viscosity.
*Make sure your tires
are properly inflated.
*A flashlight with
extra batteries, warning
devices such as flares or
reflective triangles,
jumper cables, a first-aid
kit, and a cellular phone
to summon emergency
assistance if needed.




go on a memorable trip

Familiar? Perhaps. Dull? Anything but

Here are some tried and true day or
overnight trips that won't break the bank:
Beat the summer heat by tubing the river
in Ichetucknee Springs State Park, about 64
miles west of Jacksonville Beach. Trams 'and
vans take you to one of three starting points
on the river for a three-hour, 90-minute or
45-minute float. Park admission is $5 per
vehicle, and tubing is $5 per person, free for
age 5 and under. Don't forget the picnic bas-
Take the Mayport ferry, drive the cause-
way to Amelia Island and enjoy fried green
tomatoes at Brett's Waterway Cafe.
Drive 53 miles to St. Marys, a small
coastal village in southeast Georgia, explore
the waterfront and take the 45-minute ride
aboard the Cumberland Queen ferry to
unspoiled Cumberland Island (and don't for-
get insect repellent). Ferry fees are $17 for
adults, $15 for ages 65 and older and,$12 for
12 and under. Reservations suggested at
(912) 882-4335 or (877) 860-6787.
Head south to St. Augustine, stroll St.
George Street and take in a demonstration of
Colonial-era weapons at the Castillo de San
Marcos (the fort), given weekends this
month and next. Adults, $6. Free for 15 and

Cool down as you descend into a 120-
foot-deep cavity in Devils Millhopper
Geological State Park two miles northeast of
Gainesville, Fla., (93 miles from Jacksonville
Beach). At the bottom of the bowl-shaped
cavity, sit on a bench, listen to a waterfall


According to a
survey of more than 500 moms,
more than 87 percent say they'll
travel with their children this sum-
mer despite high gas prices.
Make the most of family travels
with these fun and smart ideas:
Convenience Foods
Kids will inevitably get hungry
during a road trip of any length,
and it's good to plan ahead. Parents
can save money, because they won't
have to buy food at the conven-
ience store or the nearest fast food
Choosing brain food will keep
their mifids and bodies happy.
Healthy options are a great way to
satisfy children's hunger and ensure
they are getting proper
nutrition. Try packing
individual bags of /
fruit, such as oranges,
grapes, apples and
berries. Mix together
for a fun fruit salad
snack. This goes for
vegetables as well.
Pack a small plastic
container with dip-
ping, sauce to entice
kids if they are hesi-
tant to eat veggies by
Grocery stores are
full of convenience

foods prepackaged for children.
Pick out children's favorites and
allow them to enjoy one serving
each in the car. Choosing some-
thing special will help make the trip
more memorable and enjoyable.
And as always, make sure to pack
plenty of liquids including water.
Vacation Activities
So how can parents keep kids
entertained on vacation? Elmer's
arts and craft expert Michelle
Manning suggests the following
activities to help parents encourage
mess-free, creative free play during
summer travels.
*Games: Classic family games
make the time pass quickly. Play
games like eye spy or give each
child a list of items to watch for

while driving to the vacation desti-
*Photography: Vacation is the
perfect time for children of any age
to learn the art of photography.
Chronicle unique experiences
through photos with a disposable or
inexpensive digital camera.
*Personalized postcards: Make
one-of-a-kind postcards on summer
road trips with glue sticks, markers,
paints, buttons, ribbons or stamps.
*Journaling: Create a wonderful
vacation memento by writing and
designing a journal about summer
travels. For a more memorable jour-
nal, parents can add in their own
*Storytelling: This is a perfect
time to talk to kids about their
favorite story from
\ the past year at
school and what
* they are excited
* about in the upcom-
ing school year. To
e? 6 map, add in some imagi-
nation, make up a
at hand story. Choose a set-
ting and several
r in case characters and take
turns deciding what
course happens next as the
story moves on.

Romantic getaways for the taking

Mint juleps on the verandah
Jekyll Island, 85 miles north of Jacksonville Beach, is billed as "Georgia's
Jewel," offering history and culture, nature and wildlife in a setting that was
once the favored playground of- America's wealthy. Explore the historic dis-
trict, a 240-acre, riverfront compound that is one of the largest, ongoing
restoration projects in the southeastern United States. Rent a bicycle and
take a trek to the beach of this barrier island and its 10 miles of unspoiled
beach. Take a moonlight walk among the magnolias, and relax on the
verandah of the historic Jekyll Island Club Hotel, sipping a drink as you look
out at the Jekyll River.
Always close to nature
If you must stay in a chain hotel or motel, don't go to Cedar Key, a
small, relaxed, island community three miles out in the Gulf of Mexico,
about 149 miles southwest of Jacksonville Beach.
Rich in small town flavor, Cedar Key is one of the oldest ports in the state.
Once a major supplier of seafood and timber products to the northeast, it
has become a haven for artists and writers inspired by the unspoiled envi-
Walk the historic streets, browse the shops and galleries, explore the back
bayous and enjoy the world-famous restaurants featuring local seafood.
Whether you want a view of the Gulf of Mexico and the islands, as in the
$255-per-night Sunrise Suite of the Cedar Key Bed & Breakfast, or you pre-
fer a modest, $45-per-night cottage at Mermaids Landing overlooking a shal-
low bay, you'll never be far from nature in this charming community.
Where the highway ends
The sounds of the sea lapping gently at the stretch of beach are soothing
as a band of color settles into the horizon as the sun sets in brilliant strips
of azure and gold.
This is Key West, the southern most city in the United States, where you
can relax in the island ambiance, enjoy lively day or night spots, peer into
the lives of former residents Ernest Hemmingway and John James Audubon,
and watch unparalleled sunsets all in one day.
Whether you vacation in one of the beautiful bed and breakfasts, beach
bungalows or popular hotels, this will be a trip you won't soon forget.

Celebrate summer by getting

ready to entertain in your home

Dear Jane,
My daughter is getting mar-
ried this summer and we're
hosting the celebration at our
house. What are some rips for
getting my house "par ty
ready) .. ,.. .*. .,
Stephanie B.

Dear Stephanie,
First off, congratulations!
Summer is when we celebrate
the best of life's passages: wed-
dings, graduations, and th6se
long-awaited family reunions.
Summer also brings lots of
days to gather together over a
long weekend with those we
love for a ball game or a bar-
beque on such occasions as
Mother's Day, Father's Day,
Memorial Day, Fourth of July,
and Labor Day. This is the sea-
son where we move outdoors
and the parties last long into
the warm summer nights.
Is Your House Party-Ready?
Before you send out those
invites and the guests start
arriving, make yourself a
'checklist of all the things that
need attention, repair or
replacements. Are there any
major repairs needed for the
basic day-to-day operation of
your house? Is your air condi-
tioner in proper working
order? Does the dishwasher
work? How about your plumb-
Fix any .leaks, running toi-
lets or clogged sinks. Make
sure everything is in proper
working order including major
appliances. Check your septic
tank (if you have one) and
your propane tanks.
Go with the Flow
Look at the flow of your

'Be Jane'
house. If you have a large out-
door space but want to make
sure your guests head to a par-
ticular area, create a pathway
with sandstone, gravel or flag-
stone. This will lead everyone
in the right direction and, in
case of rain the night before
your big event, your guests
won't be trekking through
mud. Make sure your sprin-
klers won't kick in while your
guests are still partying.
Light of the Party
Now is the time to inspect
all of your outdoor lighting
and make sure everything is
working properly. Candles are
always lovely for outdoor
entertaining but often they do
not provide enough light for
pathways or stairs. Make sure
the entire area around your
house is safe for people who.
may not be familiar with the
The Sound of Music
And speaking of wiring,
how about hooking up out-
door speakers? A party is just

not a party without music, so
make sure you have a system
set up whereby you can pro-
vide lots of great music for
hours at a time.
Deck Delights
Your outdoor deck and fur-
nituie will..probably need a
good cleaning after weather-
ing the cold weather, even if
some of your furniture was
stored indoors. Check out all
of the deck furniture to make
sure no screws have come
loose and that all the chairs
and tables are sturdy and safe
for your guests.
Made in the Shade
You may want to think
about providing some shade
in your backyard in the form
of a pergola or canopy.
Perhaps you can add an
umbrella to your outdoor
table or a tent.
Pool Party
If you are lucky enough to
have a backyard swimming
pool or a hot tub, make sure
that all its working parts are in
order and that it is safe to use.
One of the great joys of
owning a home is being able
to entertain all the people that
you love most in the world.
What is the sense of having a
great space if you aren't shar-
ing it with others? A little
time and effort exerted before
your guests arrive will make
your summertime events more
fun and entertaining for
everyone, including yourself.

create a home you love, visit

Alcoholic beverage from a

blue agave makes you wonder

Y you've got to wonder how
someone looking at a
blue agave plant which
looks like a cross between an
aloe plant and a large blue
green pineapple figured out
you could ferment the pulp,
then distill the mash and end
up with an alcoholic beverage.
Grown in Mexico desserts, the
blue agave is the principal com-
ponent of tequila.
Known most for its presence
is margaritas, tequila has gone
from the image of a cowboy
tossing down a shot with a gri-
mace in a dusty Mexican bar to
an expensive, fine-aged tequila
sipped from a brandy snifter by
refined drinkers.
Some of the popular ultra-
premium tequilas are made by
the Patron Spirits Company.
Created and owned by Paul
Mitchell of hair-care fame,
these attractively packaged spir-
its are a delight to drink but
can be taxing on your wallet.
We tasted Patron's line of
spirits recently at a .dinner
sponsored by Bay Ridge Wine
and Spirits at Sam's on the
Waterfront. The evening
opened with a delightful cock-
tail appropriately called Sam's

;, =E~'~ i

'The Wine Guys'
Sunset, which is a shot of
Patron's Citronge ($24- 750ml)
added to Sprite or 7-Up and a
squeeze of lime.
Citronge is Patron's answer to
triple sec, an orange flavored
liquer that is another essential
ingredient in a margarita.
Patron Silver ($38-$50-
750ml) is what is commonly
used in super-premium margar-
itas. Crystal clear with a nice
fresh, crisp flavor, and unaged.
The Patron Respado ($54-
750ml), on the other hand, is
aged in oak barrels for six
months and has a slight yellow

color. It presents a hint of oak
and a bit of citrus, honey and a
little apparent saltiness. Drink
by itself or in a kicked-up mar-
Our favorite of the evening
was the Patron Anejo ($60-
750ml). Light gold in color
with some creaminess in the
nose, it has been aged about 14
months in oak and yields a
vanilla flavor with a nice bum
that reminds one of a fine
We also tasted a rarity that
will be new to Maryland the
Gran Patron Burdeos ($600-
750ml). Amazingly complex
nose, that comes from aging in
French and American oak bar-
rels. Triple distilled to create an
Anejo, it is then aged in
Bordeaux wine barrels. Very
cognac-like with vanilla and
some cedar notes. This one is
just for sipping by itself.
Mettler Petite Sirah Lodi
2002 ($20). A serious petite
sirah at a good price. Deep and
dark color with a chocolate
cherry nose. Blueberry, cherry
flavors complete a very fine

ugly, disorganized step-sister to
the rest of the house. Simple
redesigns can create laundry
rooms that fill several impor-
tant needs and keep order at
the same time. That's because
laundry rooms are often in one
critical area where the family
enters the house. That makes
its function that much more

Add organization
No matter what size your
laundry room is, there's always
room for more organization. If
yours is small, add wall organ-
izers to store mail, newspapers
and magazines. Add some
hooks to the bottom of a wall -
organizer and you have a great
spot to hang keys. A simple rail
on the wall, painted and outfit-
ted with small coat hooks, can
give you a spot to stash jackets
and sweaters.
When space is limited, even
a small board with hooks can
be installed behind a door to

my celery in a two-liter soda
bottle. I cut off the top and fill it
partially with water. I then put
the celery upright into the bot-
tle and place it into the refriger-
ator. It stays crispy a lot longer
when stored that way. Grace D.
Similarly, you can store fresh herbs
in a glass partially filled with


hold jackets or
dog leashes. If
you have a larg-
er laundry
room, then you
have more
room to play
with. Consider
adding a bench
with storage
underneath to
put boots, balls,
books or any
number of
items that usu-
ally find their
way into the
house and that
need a regular
place to "live."

Technology needs
Another consideration for
the laundry room is technolo-
gy. Because the laundry room is
an out-of-the-way space, a
home nerve center would be
perfect here. Locating a desk,
bulletin board and computer is
a nice way to get technology
out of sight and the associat-
ed mess, too.'
If there isn't enough room
for a desk, adding a simple
shelf with a place for wallets,
cell phones and chargers would
be all it required to keep these
needs satisfied without detract-
ing from the rest of the house.
Because, let's face it, a cell
phone and charger aren't the
most aesthetic items in a
home. One of the most relax-
ing boutique hotels I've ever
visited had all visible signs of
technology cleverly disguised
and hidden to give it a period
feel. Light switches were under
old hats or "painted out" of
view. It's amazing how dis-
tracting the electronics in our
homes can be, and all the more
reason to put them in a room
such as the laundry room.

Storage for books and place to hang jackets and take shoes on
and off makes this laundry room a very functional space.
Having jackets hung on hooks keeps them off the backs of
chairs and draped over a sofa. Generous cubbies hold a variety
of everyday items.

through, rethink everything
about it. First, make it an
attractive area and decorate it.
Then, consider ways to add
more organization and keep as
many of the items you need
stored there, like purses, jack-
ets, keys, cell phones and
shoes. This will limit the'
amount of clutter and mess
you have in your home.

my toddler got some crayon
marks on the floor of his room.
To remove it, I froze the marks
with ice. I then cracked the wax

them away with a plastic spatu-

your fingernails will do the
trick. Just take care not to
scratch too deeply. Gwen C.
