Widening


delay eyed

By GRAY ROHRER
STAFF WRITER

The planned widening of County Road 210 near
Sawmill Lakes in Ponte Vedra Beach could be
delayed nearly four years if the county's Planning
and Zoning Agency gave its expected OK
Thursday.
The board was to consider a request to give the
county until February 2012 to negotiate with the
state for Guana preservation land needed to
widen 210's two lanes between the Palm Valley
bridge and the roundabout'at Mickler Road.
The delay was requested by the developer of
Nocatee, a 15,000-acre, mixed-use development
being built on both sides of County Road 210
west of the Intracoastal Waterway.
The Nocatee development order says that if the
county is to widen that stretch of 210, the devel-
oper will build the road, but only if the county
acquires the right of way needed.
If the right-of-way is not acquired by the time
Nocatee is ready to enter Phase 2 October 2008
- the developer will give the county $5.5 mil-
lion, the order says.
The county has not reached an agreement with
the state, Joe Stephenson, director of Public
Works for the

New businesses coming


FROM STAFF
After months of construction,
Home Depot is scheduled to open
next month at South Beach
Regional Shopping Center in
Jacksonville Beach.
The city's planning staff could not
confirm an exact date for the open-
ing and calls to the plaza's property
manager were not returned.
Tenants in the retail complex,
however,, said they were told the.
home improvement store is slated
to open Oct. 18.
Construction of the 86,479-
square-foot footprint is nearly com-
plete. A 9,200-square-foot garden
center was relocated to the west side
of the store next to Stein Mart.
Parking in front of the store will be
reconfigured to maximize the num-
ber of spaces and a six-foot wall was
installed between the store area and
the medical offices to block the
noise.
Talk of TJ Maxx
Members of Beaches Watch
were told Wednesday there are
plans to open a TJ Maxx store at
the former site of Pablo Theaters in
the Pablo Plaza shopping center in
south Jacksonville Beach.
Jonathan Daugherty, a represen-
tative of developer Edward
Ashurian and active in commercial
leasing, reported on the plans at
the civic group's monthly meeting.
TJ Maxx is a discount retailer of
name brand products, including

clothing and housewares.
The city of Jacksonville Beach's
building department has received
no plans for the store, but employ-
ees have received numerous
queries about the store recently,
according to building officials.
New Fish Store
Also opening next month is The
Fish Company, a 7,000-square-foot
seafood restaurant and gourmet
retail shop in the former Po Boys
building at 72,-T12 Atlantic Blvd.
adjacent to the Atlantic Theatres.


Opening is tentatively scheduled
for Oct. 15. The restaurant will
also feature a full oyster bar, said
owner Bill Pinner who with his
wife Ann also operates the restau-
,rant at Safe Harbor Seafood Market
in the Mayport Fishing Village.
The new business will serve more
as a restaurant with less focus on
the retail aspect, he said, while the
Mayport business will continue to
operate as a full service seafood
market with a smaller restaurant

'Meet & greet' new principal


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
The principal of the high school
being built near Davis Park west of
Ponte Vedra Beach will mingle
with residents Monday in Palm
Valley.

speaker at the season-opening
meeting of the Palm Valley
Community Association.

Craig Speziale


Speziale oversees construction of
the school being built on land
donated by the developer of
Nocatee.
The school site is situated
between Davis Park just south
of County Road 210 about one


mile west of the Intracoastal
Waterway and Nocatee pre-
serve, which borders the
Intracoastal south of 210.
Speziale, who has two school-.
age children, has spent 22 years as
a teacher and administrator in the
Miami-Dade County School
District.
His most recent job was co-prin-
cipal of Miami Jackson Senior
High School.
According to St. Johns County
schools Superintendent Joseph
Joyner, Speziale was "an incredible
find for St. Johns County."
McMillen will provide an
update on the status of the dredg-
ing of the Intracoastal Waterway
through Palm Valley.
The project, which began
almost two years ago south of the
Palm Valley bridge and was par-
tially completed, has recently
been on hold due to a lack of
funding from the federal govern-
ment.

Association at 940-2240.

security
remains a top
priority on school campuses.
At Nease, a new camera system and new ID
bracelets this year are meant to increase
security, although Principal Linda Thomson
noted that sometimes a problem can come to
light only with the help of a student as in
the recent incident.
At around noon Aug. 31, a student told
Beech that someone on campus had a gun in
his backpack.
Beech notified St. Johns County Deputy
Manuel Gonzalez, who was working at the
school, and the 15 year-old boy said he was
playing with the "air soft" toy gun the day
before and forgot he left it in his backpack,
according Gonzalez' report.
The toy looks very similar to: a real hand-
gun, Beech said at the school Thursday. It is
a spring-loaded weapon that shoots plastic
bullets similar to BBs, Beech said.
Contacted by the deputy, an assistant state
attorney said charges "would not be appro-
priate" because the gun is a toy, according to
the report.
But the student, having committed one of
the most serious offenses in the School
District's Code of Conduct, was suspended
from Nease.
A discipline committee referred the student
to the Gaines Alternative Center in St.
Augustine, where he is to spend the remain-
der of the semester, Beech said.
"Sometimes the problem is a student,"
Thomson said. "We still depend on students

Security: High-tech system allows close scrutiny


Continued from A-1
to tell us what's going on."
Other measures at the school
help with security problems
from outsiders.
An upgraded, $30,000 cam-
era security system was recent-
ly installed, covering more
ground and giving clearer,
closer views than those possi-
ble with the previous system,
Thomson said.
"It's really high-tech," she
said. "I'm very impressed with
it. The old ones the pictures
were blurry. In these you can
see a person's facial features.
It's kind of like going to high
definition security cameras."
More than 15 cameras moni-
tor the school's parking lots,
hallways, and courtyards.
The cameras record surveil-
lance at up to 24 hour inter-
vals, and Beech, Sheriff's
deputies, and other school offi-
cials have access to them.
"Anybody who needs to see it
can," Thomson said.
Although the system
upgrade had been planned
when several car break-ins hap-
pened in the Nease parking lot
last year, she said, those break-
ins showed the need for
improved surveillance.
"Last year we had some secu-
rity issues in the parking lot. It
just highlighted for us how
critical the security system was.
Surveillance isn't any good if
you have areas that aren't cov-
ered," Thomson said.
She and others said the fea-
ture that excited officials the
most is the system's ability to
zoom in close enough to read
license plate numbers.
Another security measure,
implemented Tuesday, helps
identify all students on the

playing footage from the campus grounds on Thursday.


Nease campus.
All students are required to
wear ID badges so officials can
readily identify anyone who
should not be on campus,
Thomson said.
The ID cards are worn
around the neck and have bar-
codes that can be used to check
out books from the media cen-
ter, track student attendance at
school functions.
Students who misplace or
forget their ID, which shows


their name, picture, and grade
level, are required to buy a $1
temporary, paper wrist band,
the principal said.
The wrist band displays the
student's name and grade level,
and the date and time it was
issued.
Repeat offenders can be
given detention or suspension
for repeat violations. Students
who lose their ID must pur-
chase a new one for $5. The
fees offset the cost of making


the IDs and wristbands,
Thomson said.
Both Thomson and Beech
stressed that despite the new
security measures, low-tech
safety procedures are still vital.
"What is important is that a
student reported .. [the Aug.
31 incident] to the dean,"
Thomson said. "I mean, we
can't be everywhere every
minute," she said.


210: Project has had opposition from residents


Continued from A-1
county, said Thursday.
The delay will give the
county time "to work with
the state to find an option
that the state could support,"
Stephenson said in a tele-
phone interview.
"Eventually, we hope that
we will find the right formula,
but we certainly have not


yet."
Many residents have object-
ed to the widening, which
would require acquisition of
land to the north near
Sawmill Lakes homes or to
the south in the Guana
Tolomato Matanzas National
Estuarine Research Reserve.
Although acquiring Guana
land would be difficult, as


indicated by the state's posi-
tion on past requests, the
county has focused on getting
land to the south rather than
to the north, near Sawmill
Lakes.
The county's manager of
the project has said at least 17
feet of the Guana would be
required for the widening.

Promise made to


the Beaches must


be kept and that


means an overpass


Atlantic Beach City Commissioners and City Councilors
in Neptune Beach this week officially urged county offi-
cials to honor an earlier promise and build an overpass at
Kernan and Atlantic boulevards. They are on the right side
of the issue, looking out for the Beaches, and their efforts
merit support
A new member of the Jacksonville City Council has res-
urrected a bill, previously withdrawn by its original
author, to kill the overpass promised as part of the Better
Jacksonville 'Plan.
Tuesday is decision day on the bill.
Jacksonville City Councilor Art Graham, who represents
the Beaches, has asked the Beach cities to help him keep
the planned overpass in the plans.
The proposed overpass was voted as one of the highest
priorities of Beaches citizens in the Better Jacksonville
Plan, Beaches officials have said.
An overpass is expected to improve traffic flow on the
busy road, but it appears that a few special interests would
rather sacrifice the good of the many. Apparently the
owner of most of the property adjoining the intersection
has asked that the overpass be axed from the plans and a
median u-turn design be adopted as an alternative to the
overpass.
"We should not sacrifice our neighborhoods so that
people at the Beach can get home sooner," an East
Arlington homeowner association president said in a note
expressing opposition to the proposed overpass.
We maintain, however, that the Beaches should not sac-
rifice our interests, which includes the tangible of reduced
commuting time promised as part of the overpass project.
Ceding on the overpass that was promised to the Beaches
long before many of the affected East Arlington neighbor-
hoods were developed, is simply wrong.
The Beaches should stand firm in their resolve to have
the overpass built as promised. The county can and
must deliver what it promised so many years ago when
asking the Beaches taxpayers to ante up for the Better
Jacksonville Plan.
After all, the plan is supposed to make life better for the
Beaches too.

Appreciate your military


To the editor:
This letter is in reference to K.
Davis's letter against militarism
and the air show. Who do you
think fought and died so that
you can have freedom of expres-
sion? An overwhelming
amount of letters have been


printed supporting the Sea and
Sky Show. Mr. Fletcher and your
letter are the only two printed
not supporting the military and
the air event. Need I say more?

Why not more outrage over Iraq war policy


To the editor:
As a former Naval Aviator, I
have great appreciation for my
training and Naval experience;
as well as great respect for all
who have served, are serving,
and will serve this Nation.
Although I am in favor of
the air show, I want to thank
Commissioner Fletcher for his
comments regarding the Iraq
war.
My question to other elected
officials and citizens is: Why
isn't there more outrage at
how this entire mis-adventure
has been handled? Or at least
questions as to policy?
Pre-emptive War?
Rendition? Torture? Are
these Family Values? How


could this once great Country
lose its way so badly?
With so many needs at
home, the borrowed cost puts
a huge burden on future gen-
erations. It has critically
reduced our standing interna-
tionally. It serves to incite and
provide the best recruiting
tool for more fanatics, and has
increased the terrorism
threat-not reduced it.- Our
bombing diplomacy has killed
and injured so many inno-
cents, not to mention the loss
and maiming of our brave
young military men and
women?
Those against the war from
the beginning were told they
were not patriotic or did not


support the troops. Nothing
could be further from the
truth.
How can misrepresenting
the facts and reasons for the
war, rushing our troops into
conflict without proper body
6r equipment amour, extend-
ing enlistments, extended and
back to back tours, plus. not
taking proper care of our
wounded when they return
home be either Patriotic or
Support the Troops?
I just don't get it. Thank
you Commissioner Fletcher
for your courage in bringing
up the subject of the Iraq war.

Options available for all kids with an IEP


To the editor:
I was disheartened to read
the [Sept. 5, 2007 "Inclusion is
hurting my kids"] letter' regard-
ing inclusion in the classroom.
It is not for everyone, and it is
unfortunate that Duval
County isn't giving all stu-
dents an option for an appro-
priate education.
I would like to encourage


any parent of a special needs
student who is frustrated with
Duval County's inclusion plan
to please look into the McKay
Scholarship program. The
scholarship can be used at any
participating private school
and many times cover the
entire tuition cost. The schol-
arship is available to any stu-
dent with a current IEP. There


are no income requirements or
restrictions. More information
can be found at www.flori-
daschoolchoice.org.

Summer reading should be fun for students


To the editor:
I got a great idea! Let's take
kids that hate to rehd, can not
read on grade level and make
them read Great Expectations
during the summer and write a
report on it. And we wonder
why our kids hate to read. We
have sucked the fun out of read-
ing. Great- Expectations or
video games? Great
Expectations or the beach?
Definitely not a beach book!
Did anyone have trouble get-
ting their kid to read the final
book' in the Harry Potter series?
I don't think so.
It's summer. Let the kids read
what they are interested in. Let
them learn more about an area
that intrigues them.. Let them
spend time reading something
they didn't have time to read
during the school year because
of their homework load' and
activity schedule. Let them read
for enjoyrhent.
It was pulling teeth to get my
kids to read their assigned sum-
mer reading books. As they
stumbled through the books I
kept thinking... the "classics"
are educational, my kids will be
thankful one day I made them
read the classics. Thankful that
they are finished and hopefully


do not have to ever read any-
thing like that again. Save the
classics for school where there is
guidance, reflection and discus-
sion about the book. Summer
reading can not give these "clas-
sics" the attention and admira-
tion they deserve.
Yes, summer reading should
not be an option but the kids
should have options when
deciding what to read. Dog
Training for Dummies and The
Stock Market for Dummies were
two popular books in my house
this summer. I never had to ask
or remind my kids to read these
books. They picked these books
up on their own and read to
learn. They learned practical
useful things that they under-
stood and could apply. The
knowledge and success made
them want to read and learn
more. And the cycle of reading
begins.
Summer reading should be at
a child's independent level of
reading. This is a level where
they can decode and under-
stand most of the words and fol-
low the ideas and plot without
help from anyone. This is an
enjoyable, comfortable reading
level.
There are many studies that


support the link between the
volume of reading and levels of
achievement. The more a child
reads the higher their achieve-
ment level .in all areas of the
curriculum. Assigned summer
reading is not an effective way
to get our students to read
more. In many cases it is a
deterrent to reading.
Summer reading should be
easy, enjoyable and fun. A
small index card with a couple
of facts or interesting parts from
the story should be enough to
hand in as "proof" that they
read the book. Better yet an oral
book review in class during the
first week of school will expose
other students to a book they
may want to read. Summer
reading is meant to keep read-
ing skills from sliding over the
summer months. This goal can
not be accomplished during the
frantic visits to sparknotes.com
the week before school begins. I
urge educators to revisit sum-
mer reading and investigate and
implement innovative and
research based programs.

Fletcher not alone in his anti-war sentiment


To the editor:
This letter is written in
response to the letters to the edi-
tor recently published in The
Beaches Leader about Atlantic
Beach City Commissioner Jamie
Fletcher's position in voting to
not provide funding for the
upcoming military Sea & Sky
event. It is disturbing to me that
those letter writers repeatedly
refuse to see that opposition to
the war in Iraq does not equate
to opposition to our service men
and women who are serving in
Iraq. Commissioner Fletcher is
making assertions solely of his
anti-war sentiments and he is
not alone.
To assert that Commissioner
Fletcher is not representing his
constituency is erroneous and
naive. (Interestingly, some of
the letter writers to The Beaches
Leader who can't stop griping
about Commissioner Fletcher
and his vote on the City


Commission are not even resi-
dents of Atlantic Beach). Over
half of the United States popula-
tion is opposed to the Iraq war
and I suspect a large number of
Atlantic Beach residents, includ-
ing myself, can be counted in
those numbers. According to
the latest Gallup poll on the war
in Iraq, 57 percent of the United
States population believe it was
a mistake for us to send troops
to Iraq initially. Are all of these
people to be maligned as per-
sons who do not support our
military? Of course not.
This is a deeply unpopular war
a'nd the statement attributed to
Commissioner Fletcher that he
is "morally and politically
opposed to the war in Iraq"
clearly .reflects the sentiment of
the majority of the United States
residents. Contrary to the repre-
sentations of your recent letter
writers, this is not an anti-mili-
tant attitude. Likewise, this is


not a lack of respect for the sac-
rifices of our service men and
women nor does it reflect a lack
of gratitude for'those who serve.
I have known Jamie Fletcher
for quite a few years and know
him to be a good and moral per-
son. He made the decision to
run for office of city commis-
sioner to serve this community.
Although I may disagree with
some of the decisions made by
the city commission, my opposi-
tion to their vote on a particular
issue should not give me, or
anyone else, the right to make
personal attacks on them. We
owe Commissioner Fletcher and
others in that position, who give
a great deal of their time and
effort to this community, the
appreciation and respect they
richly deserve.

BILL GULLIFORD
COLUMNIST

Public

spending

merits

scrutiny

property taxes have
become a significant
issue with the recent
action taken by the state legis-
lature to provide relief by
pressuring local governments
to roll back rates; even though
Atlantic Beach appears to be
opting not to do so.
I believe this attention has
.pointed to a larger question
and that is the role of govern-
ment in funding cultural and
charitable efforts as well as
non profit organizations.
With the rapid appreciation
of property values and the
subsequent windfalls from
those increases, local govern-
ments have been more apt to
donate to what we perceive as
worthwhile endeavors in our
communities, but do they
really "promote the general
welfare"?
When governments make a
contribution to a certain
event or project they are mak-
ing a decision for each of us
.and unless they fund every
worthwhile event or project,
that decision is selective. This
begs the question, if you do
for one why wouldn't you do
for all? Years ago when I was.a
mayor, we were approached
in a meeting by a children's
sports organization and the
commission was asked to
make a thousand dollar con-
tribution to their cause. I
opposed it much to the cha-
grin of some in the audience
that night. I was willing .to
make a personal donation but
opposed to the City doing it.
Why? Because how would we
say no to all the other won-
derful organizations that serve
children and would want and
deserve the same considera-
tion. If we were selective and
limited our donations to
those organizations we
thought to be beneficial, then
we were taking away the citi-
zen's right to.choose based on
their personal priorities.
The same question carries
over into how tourist develop-
ment tax, known as "bed tax",
is used by a city. Currently my
city commission is consider-
ing a proposal to use $45,000
of accumulated bed tax
money to partially fund a pas-
sive sculpture in a park. While
bed tax money does not come
directly out of our pbckets, if
spent wisely it can be a great
benefit to citizens of a com-
munity. That is why many
coastal communities and
counties focus a great deal of
their bed tax expenditures on
improving their beaches.
Certainly that is of great ben-
efit to the majority of us.
Maybe in the months and
years to come, citizens will
start monitoring how their
elected officials spend their
tax dollars a little closer.
Wouldn't a "straw ballot" on
non-essential expenditures be
an interesting exercise every
now and then to encourage
citizen participation? Who
knows, that kind of thinking
might even lead to the resur-
rection of general obligation
bonds.

Wary of possible alternatives, AB delays hotel vote


by ALEXANDRA KUM-
MERNES
STAFF WRITER
Proposed plans for a hotel in
Atlantic Beach have been put on
hold so that the Community
Development Board can gather
more information, according to
Community Development
Director Sonya Doerr.
Developed Chris Hionides has
proposed plans for a 26-room
"boutique" hotel at the comer
of East Coast Drive and Ahem
Street, on a 15,000-square-foot


property which is currently
zoned commercial business dis-
trict, according to a project
description from representative
Glen Trotter.
The 'Community
Development Board had con-
cerns about other uses for the
property if the applicant did not
put a hotel on the site, accord-
ing to Doerr, who said that retail
and service uses are allowed in
commercial general zoning.
However, Doerr said that the
applicant was willing to strike


out any unacceptable uses from
the contract.
The applicant has also filed
for a use by exception because
the hotel is proposed at 35 feet,
which exceeds the 25-foot
height limit for buildings in the
commercial business district.
The increased height is part of
the design to incorporate a park-
ing garage at the bottom,
according to Erika Hall, a city
planner.
Plans are proposed for a three-
story hotel that is approximate-


ly 22,000 square feet. The style
would be consistent with Town
Center and neighboring busi-
nesses, according to a previous
letter from Trotter.
The Community
Development Board will most
likely review the application
again at its September or
October meeting, Doerr said.
She confirmed there have been
some concerns that with the
rezoning, the property might
be developed more intensively
in the future.


Atlantic Beach to talk tree removal for Wal-Mart medians


by.ALEXANDRA KUM-
MERNES
STAFF WRITER
Median modifications along
Atlantic Boulevard to accommo-
date a proposed Wal-Mart may
mean that some trees are
removed, according to corre-
spondence from the Florida
Department of Transportation.


Neptune Beach City
Councilor Fred Lee con-
tacted Atlantic Beach Mayor
Don Wolfson with information
about the median modifications
- which are on the Atlantic
Beach City Commission agenda
for review at Monday's 7:15
p.m. meeting.
Although no one from Wal-


Mart has filed a permit for the
store to come to Neptune Beach,
median modifications will be
necessary to accommodate the
store if it does file for a permit,
according to officials.
Some trees may have to be
removed from the median.
However, if they cannot be relo-
cated in the medians the city of


Neptune Beach will be able to
designate a relocation area and
Wal-Mart will have to guarantee
them through one growing sea-
son, according to an e-mail from
FDOT Maintenance Permits
Coordinator Carol Wright to
Neptune Beach Community
Development Director Amanda
Askew.

"Right now our group may be

Loretta conducted a recent

concerns and develop a plan
for neighborhood improve-

"Public health, safety and

fied within the visioning char-
rette include speed, traffic con-

Jax Beach resident studies variety of world's religions and teaches students


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
"It is undeniable at this
point in history that religion
is an important social
force.....maybe the most
important," said Julie
Ingersoll, Ph.D., Associate
Professor of Religious Studies
at the University of North
Florida.
Students come to college
well aware of this. As a result
they often choose to learn
more about religion by taking
classes in the University's
Religious Studies Program, the
Beaches resident said in a
recent interview.
Religious Studies courses are
not courses in Theology. They
are "designed to help stu-
dents understand the world
view of others," she said.
"It is not about whose reli-
gion is right or wrong. Those
questions stay in the hall."
In UNF's Religious Studies
classes students use an ihter-
disciplinary approach to
compare and analyze the

Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of
North Florida.


different ways people think
about God.


"There is a cliche that
Religious Studies is about


making the familiar strange
and the strange familiar,"
said Ingersoll.
Students may come into a
class taking the Christian
viewpoint for granted."
In Ingersoll's Comparative
Religion course at UNF, stu-
dents begin by learning about
Judaism, followed by
Christianity and Islam.
Hinduism and Buddhism,
which are usually less familiar
to students, are studied later
in the course.
They learn how different
religions agree or disagree on
the same topic and some of
the forces that influence reli-
gions.
"Seeing that they (religions)
develop is sometimes surpris-
ing to students," she said.
For example, the negative
view held by some Christian
denominations about con-
suming alcoholic beverages
dates back to 19th Century
America, she said.
Comparative Religion ful-
fills a general education
requirement at UNF and is


taken by students majoring in
many different areas of study,
said Ingersoll.
Religious Studies is not
available as a major area of
study at UNF but students
can choose to minor in
Religious Studies.
Approximately 70 students
are currently working towards
a minor in Religious Studies
which Ingersoll takes as an
"indication of strong inter-
est."
A Jacksonville Beach resi-
dent, Ingersoll is also the
Coordinator for UNF's
Religious Studies Program .
She was the first full-time
professor at UNf in Religious
Studies which is part of the
Department of Philosophy.
In addition to Comparative
Religion Ingersoll teaches
upper level courses in
Religious Studies.
These include Religion in
America, Religion and Pop
Culture, Fundamentalism,
Religion in the Courts, and
others.
Ingersoll describes her main


areas of interest as religion
and politics, religion and gen-
der, and religion and
American culture.
She has a Ph.D. in Religious
Studies from the University of
California at Santa Barbara, .an
M.A. in History and Religion
from George Washington
University, and a B.A. in
Political Science and Religion
from Rutgers College.
Ingersoll is the author of
"Evangelical Christian
Women: War Stories in the
Gender Battles" and "Baptist
and Methodist Faiths in
America" in the "Faith in
America Series" edited by J.
Gordon Melton.
She has also contributed to
numerous publications writ-
ing on topics such as contem-
porary Christian worship
music, Christian schools, fun-
damentalism, the Promise
Keepers, and televangelism.
Ingersoll is currently at
work on an upcoming book
on "the origins of the reli-
gious right" prior to the early
1980's.

'Road Warriors' aim for another victory


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
Nease High football coach
Craig Howard has nicknamed
his team the "Road Warriors"
this year because the squad will
log so many miles for its first
three games of the season.
Last Friday's 104-mile excur-
sion to Citra, just north of
Ocala, will seem like a trip to
the corner store compared to
this week's venture to Stuart
where Nease will face the
Martin County Tigers.
It's pretty much a straight
230-mile, three and a half hour
jaunt down 1-95, with scenic
destinations like Daytona
Beach, Merritt Island, Vero
Beach and Fort Pierce visible
from windows on the left side
of the bus.
What the Panthers will find
when they get to Tiger Stadium
is a Martin County team that
went 8-3 last year and won its..
district championship. In 2006,
the Tigers made the state play-
offs for the first time.since
1999 and their only regular
season losses were to Palm Bay
and South Fork, both Class 5A
playoff teams.
Coach Chuck Kenyon's team
opened the 2007 season with a
35-0 victory over Sebring last
week, with senior tailback Lyle
Dankenbring pacing the attack
to the tune of 119 yards rush-
ing on 19 carries and three
trips to the end zone.
Dankenbring, who scored on
runs of 24, 6 and 22 yards, also
caught three passes for 39
yards.
"I canl build the program
around kids like Lyle," Kenyon
told the Vero Beach Press-
Journal.
Tigers quarterback Richard
Shiller, filling in for injured
starter Ronnie Nelson, went 8-
of-16 for 111 yards in the pass-
ing department. Shiller also


rushed for 20 yards.
A brewing quarterback con-
troversy as Nelson appears
ready to return from a back
injury was quickly squelched
by Kenyon.
"Thirty-five nothing," the
coach is quoted as saying. "The
score that made it 28-0, that
was an audible by Shiller. It
was 35-0, that's all I'm going to
say."
Martin County's defense had
an interception and two fum-
ble recoveries against Sebring,
with several players recording
multiple tackles.
Still, the Tigers' defense prob-
ably hasn't seen anything like
what Nease will throw at it
Friday night.
In last week's 35-14 blowout
of North Marion, the Panthers
rushed 37 times for 197 yards
(quarterback Ted Stachitas
picked up 64 of those on 10
carries to lead his team) and
passed 30 times for 138 yards.
Stachitas runs Nease's no-
huddle attack from a variety of
formations in Howard's spread
offense, and the senior signal-
caller is a master at reading
coverages and adjusting on the
fly.
Defensively, Nease pitched
nearly a perfect game against
North Marion. Consider: At
halftime, the Colts had run a
total of 20 offensive plays with
seven of those resulting in
turnovers.
While the final numbers
show North Marion gaining 68
yards on the ground and 212
through the air, most of that
came in the fourth quarter
when the Panthers' second-
and third-string players were in
the game.
Friday night's game may not
be as easy as last week's, but
expect Nease players to board
buses with big smiles and a 2-0
record for the journey back to
Ponte Vedra Beach.

Volleyball success continues for Panthers


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

With the beginning of the
season out of the way for the
Nease High School volleyball
team, things are starting to fall
into place for a team that
looks to repeat its state semifi-


nal trip from last year.
The Panthers (4-1, 3-0) have
breezed through three District
5-4A matches, the latest victim
being Port Orange Atlantic
Tuesday, which Nease sent
home after a 25-12, 25-10, 25-
5 win.
Although the team made


some mistakes throughout the
match, the Panthers continue
to get plenty of on-court expe-
rience as the season gets into
full stride.
"We made some key errors
tonight that we are still work-
ing on," head coach Dawn
Madden said following the

Atlantic match. "We need to
be a little more disciplined on
the court.
"It's tough because our level
of play is so high compared to
the schedule we sometimes
have to play. But we need to
work on focus more in practice
so we can make some better
plays."
A week after getting hit with
their first loss of the season at
Spruce Creek High School, the
Panthers regrouped in time to
knock off both the Sharks and
Clay High School, another dis-
trict opponent.
"Spruce Creek [was] a really
tough match," Madden said.
"That's why we scheduled
them, they're a solid team. It
was really our first real game
of the season. They're a quality
team with a lot of kids and we
wanted to play them because
we knew they were really
strong."
With the loss of several key
players from last year, Nease
brings a young roster this sea-
son that doesn't lack playing
experience, but experience
playing with each other on the
court.
"We still need to get the kids
used to each other on the
court," Madden said. "We have
lots of great kids and we need
to put it together. We just need
to get the kids to connect a lit-
tle bit more."
Against Atlantic, the
Panthers got big games from
Kamryn Sherman, who record-
ed 27 assists and added seven
digs and 19 service points .in
the match. Senior Paige
DePriest had 11 kills and five
digs against the Sharks, adding
11 points off the serve.
Wesley-Anne Barden had
seven kills and five digs and
libero Cierra Pillsbury recorded
seven digs.
Pillsbury missed the match
against Clay with an illness,
allowing senior Brianna Bates
to get some time on the court,
which she made the most of.
"Cierra went home sick that
night and Brianna stepped in
and had an outstanding
night," Madden said. "She
played solid for us. She made
some good passes. It was really
nice that she could step in her
place and do such a good job."
DePriest recorded eight kills
against Clay and Kristin
Adkinson added six kills for
the Panthers.
Despite the early success,
Madden still sees some things
the Panthers need to work on.

The girls have to learn how
to handle the pressure and fix
their mistakes," Madden said.
"Games like Spruce Creek are a
good indication of where we
stand as a team. The danger
Against the other teams like
Clay and Atlantic is us getting
unfocused. The key in these
games is to stay focused."
The Panthers traveled to
Stanton Prep Thursday night, a
solid, well-coached team,
according to Madden. Nease
then travels to district rivals
Palatka and St. Augustine next
week before returning home
Sept. 18 to host Menendez.

The Panthers emerged from
a showcase of area high school
golf talent to win Wednesday's
match played at TPC Sawgrass.


Nease was anchored by two
players, Tyler McCumber who
carded an even-par 72, and
M.J. Maguire who shot a 1-
over 73.
With the victory, the
Panthers remained unbeaten
at 5-0 while dealing first losses
to Bartram Trail, Lake Mary
and Spruce Creek.

Sisters of the Sea competition --i


aids 'Bosom Buddies' charity


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER

Surfers from the top com-
petitors on the East Coast
to moms and daughters
spending a day riding waves
participated in the 9th annual
Sisters of the Sea Surf Classic
last Saturday in Hanna Park.
The classic raised about
$2,500 for "Bosom Buddies" at
the Women's Center in


j


Jacksonville, a local non-profit
organization that supports
breast cancer survivors. Valerie
Zevens, spokesperson for
Sisters of the Sea, said the con-
test has raised nearly $40,000
over the years.
"I think it's important for
the role modeling and bonding
and for girls to see older girls
and women of all walks of life
enjoying surfing," Zevens said.
"And dads and brothers and
whole families are out here set-

ting up their tents and making
it a family day at the beach.
Especially in our 10-and-under
white water division, you see
mostly dads in the water push-
ing their daughters into
waves."
Ray Pimental, who will rep-
resent the North Florida dis-
trict of the Eastern Surfing
Association East Coast
Championships in Cape
Hatteras, N.C. this month, was
out with his daughters, Avery,
16, and India, 10. Avery placed
second in the whitewater riders
[ages 15-19] division.
"This is a great event to
spend time with your family
and be supportive of your .
daughters surfing," Pimental
said.
Eastern Surfing Association
stand-outs also surfed the clas-
sic. Kayla Durden of
Jacksonville Beach won the
gidgets shortboard division
[ages 13-15]. Jessie Cames of
Atlantic Beach won the leilanis
shortboard [ages 16-20] and
leilanis longboard [ages 19 and
under] divisions. Kayla
Beckmann, also of Atlantic
Beach, placed second in leila-
nis shortboard and fourth in
leilanis longboard. The girls
will be representing the North
Florida district in the ESA East
Coast championships.
And there were plenty of
non-competitive "soul surfers"
at Sisters of the Sea like
Michelle Jingras, who has been
surfing in the classic since the
first contest in 1999. The
University of North Florida
graduate now lives in Daytona
where she is a chiropractor, but

COLUMNIST


Back from

the cabin

and giving

gardening

advice again

Ihad an incredible summer
being in New Hampshire as
I always do, butthis year
we also drove to see
Newfoundland and Labrador.
And we didn't just drive
across their borders to say
we'd been there; we drove
more than 3,500 miles seeing
every nook and cranny of
those two countries.
What we saw was incredible,
from icebergs and whales to
bake apple jam and partridge-
berry pie. Our 12-year-old Lab,
Lacey, swam among the ice-
bergs, loving every freezing
moment.
For once after being gone
quite awhile, we drove onto
our property and everything
looked real good. I was sur-
prised because we. knew you
had had a rough June and
July. But, it seemed that the
entire East Coast suffered from
dryness. Since we've been:
back, the rain has missed us
most of the time, so I have
numerous very dry areas in
the lawn. Some-of you may
also.
This sign is one that
prompts us to water the area,
which is a good way to go if
done properly. However, if
overdone, it will definitely sat-
urate the roots so they die,
and then brown patch fungus
takes over.
A neighbor used an arching
sprayer with the water on full
blast, every night from 7 p.m.
until 8 a.m. for a week, and
now the area is totally dead. I
live in a neighborhood where
citations are issued, and many
of them have been given out
because of dead areas of grass.
Homeowners call laborers to
dig up the dead, but they are
having a hard time finding
healthy sod to replace it with.
The demand is very heavy.
. My recommendation to you
is that if you have areas that
are needing extra water, you
use a device such as an arch-
ing sprayer, but do so no more
than twice a week (which I
think is still the rule), but let

Pastel exhibit at Beaches museum


-..- FROM STAFF
"Sun & Squalls," an exhibit
by the First Coast Pastel
Society, opened this week at
the Beaches Museum &
History Center in Jacksonville
Beach.
The exhibit runs through
Oct. 23.
Fourteen original works of
art using pastels as the paint-
ing medium and depicting
beach scenes, from magnifi-
cent skies to architectural ren-
derings, will be highlighted in
the exhibit.
Artists exhibiting their art-
work include Jane Alexander,
Jean Ballow, Debbie Dellinger,
Virginia Ford, Arlene Hanly,
Claire Morin, Perry Russell
and Ruth Wright.
In the mid 1990s, a small
group of local artists formed
the First Coast Pastel Society
in order to meet, exchange
ideas, exhibit their work and
promote interest in the use of
pastel for drawing and paint-
ing.
Pastel originated in northern
Italy in the 16th century. It is
a dry medium which normally
comes as a fragile, finger-size


stick that looks like chalk,
however pastel and chalk are
technically different.
The pieces in the exhibit
will be for sale through
Ruby's Emporium Museum
Store.
The Beaches Museum &
History Center is at 380
Pablo Ave. in Jacksonville
Beach.
The museum is open from
10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday. Admission
is charged at the door. For
more information, call 241-.

ABET opens 16th


season with song


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
The Atlantic Beach
Experimental Theatre kicks
off its 2007-2008 season
today at 8 p.m. with the Neil
Simon musical "They're
Playing Our Song."
The play runs through
Sept. 22 at the Adele Grage
Cultural Center in Atlantic
Beach. Tickets are $20.
Directed by Randall
Adkison, the play features
the music of Marvin
Hamlisch and the lyrics of
Carol Bayer Sager,
SThe story is loosely based
on the relationship between
an established composer and
a neophyte lyricist.
Backup "voices" sung by
three women and two men
create a humorous and
romantic conflict between
the two primary characters.
The play features plenty
Neil Simon one-liners.
The cast includes Adkison,


Laura Adkison, Leonard
Alterman, Del Austin, Leah
Cortez, Daisy Miller and
Trish McGavock.
Adkinson assumes the
composer's role. He has per-
formed professionally in
numerous musicals at the
Alhambra Dinner Theatre
and currently is a drama
Instructor at Nease High
School.
Laura Adkison, who plays
Sonia, the aspiring lyricist,
returns to the ABET stage
where she played the title
role in Eugene O'Neil's
"Anna Christie," and Lady
Larkin in "Once Upon a
Mattress," for which she also
was the musical director.
She is the choraPdirector
at Nease.

It is daunting to make a turn into the
businesses located along Beach Boulevard
these days. The ongoing construction and
'curving traffic lanes take all of a driver's
concentration. However, there are quality
merchants and professionals continuing to
do business on both the south and north
side of Beach Boulevard and their efforts

deserve recognition and support. The com-
munity is enhanced by all of these fine
businesses and it would be a shame to lose
any of their services..
Please make the extra effort to support our
local businesses during the road improve-
ments and construction. Your patience and
effort will be appreciated.

concerts being

Boston gig is
killed, thier man-
Sager shrugs it off:
S "It's not much of a
College town any-
way." The final
straw is when
SDavid's girlfriend

IEWER and, Yoko Ono-
style, tries to run
roughshod over the band's.
Even when the movie isn,t
laugh-out-loud funny (which it
usually is), one is impressed
with how realistically bad the
band is. One of their hits, "Big
Bottom," a paean to female
behinds, seems outrageous,
until you recall that the rock
group Queen had a similar hit
titled "Fat-B6ttomed Girls." It's
as though Reiner & Co. plotted
out the legitimate story of a
rock band and then turned it
just slightly askew to milk it for
huge laughs.
"Mock-umentary" comedies
have practically become their
own genre (and "Tap's"
Christopher Guest has been
responsible for the best of
them, such as the dog-contest
parody "Best in Show"). But
"This Is Spinal Tap" remains
the gold standard proving, as
one of its characters says, that
"There's such a fine line
between brilliant and stupid."

'Simpsons Movie' is laugh-out-loud good


By SARAH LINWOOD
CONTRIBUTOR
or jaded critics, it's hard
to believe "The Simpsons
Movie" could be a box
office success. It's a smash -
which says a lot about critic's
standards. Do they take them-
selves too seriously? Is it a
case of "those who can, do,
and those who can't, teach?"
Possibly but regardless of the
psychological implications,
"The Simpsons" is an 81-
minute laughathon. All the
TV characters we've grown to
love in its 18 year history are
here, bigger than life. Better
still, the signature Simpsons
animation hasn't been altered
for the silver screen. It's grati-
fying the writers and produc-
ers know what this award-
winning (23 Emmys and a
Peabody!) show's audience
craves!
Like all "Simpson" episodes


(so far more than 400), the
movie version has a strong
plot. Keep that in mind as the
"credit crawl" disappears down
the screen. You'll note it has
11 credited writers! Most flicks
have three unrelated "fathers"
or less but there's a secret the
chosen 11 share. All have pro-
duced an episode at one time
or another. All, consequently,
know the all-important
Simpson family character pro-
file, their friends and
Springfield too. It's unbeliev-
ably important as one can
only guess how 11 profession-
als could agree on a single
script!
The film's acerbic side intro-
duces itself as the lights go
down. Homer, the absent-
minded nuclear plant opera-
tor, is lost in wonder as he
ponders why anyone would
pay to see a flick they'll even-
tually be able to view free on


television. Perhaps it's the on-
screen action: As usual,
Homer, after dumping a silo
of pig "poo" from his latest
pet in Springfield's lake, finds
the government's gone batty
over the pollution. At first,
mindless state bureaucrats
want the town quarantined.
The Simpsons flee and briefly
wind up in pristine Alaska.
They return when radicals
step in; we learn there's a
much more sinister plan
afoot.
More detail would merely
steal thunder from the solid
plot. Every character is at his
cynical best, and no joke topic
is shunned for political cor-
rectness. A few sensitive folks
may be shocked by the hilari-
ous way sacred cows are treat-
ed (it's a PG-13 flick), but to
this reporter, the way the
near-dozen writers milk them
for laughs strikes the right bal-


ance between fun and insult.
David Silverman directed.
this flick, though how one
can direct animated characters
stretches the imagination. He
has, however, a long history
of toiling on Simpsons
episodes. His portfolio
includes "Monsters, Inc." and
numerous other top-grade
animated pictures.
Though the flick has a fan-
tastic website fi www.simpson-
smovie.com/main.html you
won't need the trailer to know
what you're getting. Just col-
lect some ring tones, take a
"tour" of Springfield and
download free icons.
This is a laugh-out-loud
movie, ard since the.hoi-pol-
loi at Time magazine have
designated the series "the best
television show of the 20th
Century," it must be worth
seeing. For once, they're right!

Weekend 4


I n my humble
opinion, "This Is
J Spinal Tap"
(1984) is one of the
funniest movies
ever made, all the
S more so because of
the deadpan seri- i,
ousness with which
Sits minimally tal-
.,^ '1 ented leads take
S themselves.
The movie is a STEVE
send-up of rock- REV
,,. music pretentious-.
ness as embodied in Spinal Tap,
a heavy-metal group consisting
of David (Michael McKean),
Nigel (Christopher Guest), and
Derek (Harry Shearer). The
movie's conceit is that a low-
level filmmaker, Marty DiBergi
(played by Rob Reiner, whose
., directorial debut this was), is
-doing a documentary about
Spinal Tap's latest American
tour.
The movie was mostly
improvised by Reiner and his
.stars, and the detail that went
into their improvisations was
enough to make many movie-
goers believe that Spinal Tap
was a genuine band.
"Historical footage" shows
Tap's origins as a British skiffle
PICTURES band, evolving into a (E60s
ust." flower-power group before
devolving into macho power-:
guitarists.
z The mock-documentary
clearly shows that the group is
well on its way down, with -

Ownership change was needed to get Mondavi back on track


R obert Mondavi certainly
has suffered some bad
times. One of the icons
in Napa Valley, Robert
Mondavi blazed trails in rais-
ing the bar for this country's
fine wine industry. But mis-
management, family squab-
bles and changing focus even-
tually crippled the winery and
forced the Mondavi clan to
sell the business and the name
to Constellation.
If you want to read more
about one of the most intrigu-
ing family breakups, pick up
"The House of Mondavi" by,
Julia Flynn Siler. Although
there is no happy ending to
this pitiful squabble, the own-
ership change is probably
what the brand needed to get
Mondavi back on track.
We had a chance to catch
up with the Mondavi wines
during a recent visit with
Mark de Vere, one of about 24
masters of wine in the United
States. A "MW" is an elite
title given to only the best


I ~~.


TOM MARQUART
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'


tasters in the world who have
passed an incredibly rigorous
test.
We suspect Mark was cho-
sen as Mondavi's ambassador
because of his impeccable
palate. He has been touring
the country challenging peo-
ple like us to blind taste
Mondavi wines alongside
French counterparts.
He pitted the 2005 Mondavi


Reserve Chardonnay with the
2003 Moreau Chablis Volmer
Grand Cru, the 2005 Mondavi
Reserve Pinot Noir with the
2003 Nicolas Potel Charmes-
Chambertin Grand Cru, and
the 2004 Mondavi Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon with the
2003 Lafite Rothschild. That's
pretty stiff competition for
even the best California wine.
Of course, all of these wines
were excellent and it was diffi-
cult to leave them unfinished.
Given the different vintages
and regions, it is hardly a fair
comparison. However, it was-
n't Mark's intention to show
that one wine was better than
the other. Rather, it was ,to
show that Mondavi, despite
its recent turmoil, is still mak-
ing world-class wine.
Judging the wines purely on
hedonistic pleasure, we sur-
prisingly preferred the
Mondavi cabernet over the
Lafite Rothschild. It is no
wonder the Mondavi cabernet
(about $125 a bottle) was
rated 92 points by Robert


Parker Jr.'s Wine Advocate. Mr.
Parker's criticism of previous
vintages was eviscerating.
"We're trying to show that
California wines are different,
not necessarily better," says
Mr. de Vere. "We want them
to taste like California wines."
And they do. The Mondavi
wines are more forward in
fruit while the French wines
were more subtle and even
more exquisite. That's a gener-
alization, of course, but to us
the big fruit flavors is what
makes California wines
Californian.
Genevieve Janssens has
been Mondavi's director of
winemaking since 1997 and
before that she directed wine
making at Opus One.
The face-off between these
wines was very persuasive.
Although it is unlikely you
can duplicate the blind tasting
in your own homes the
Lafite Rothschild cost $500 a
bottle you can still enjoy
these more moderately priced
wines:


Robert Mondavi Winery
To Kalon Vineyard Fume
Blanc Reserve 2005 ($43).
Mondavi still clings to the
often misunderstood "fume"
label for its sauvignon blanc
- and, for good reason. It set
the model for a top-quality
fume blanc and remains one
of the best in California.
Blended with 15 percent semi-
lion, it has rounded, multi-
layered flavors of pit fruit and
orange. It packs power with-
out being smothered with
overpowering fruit. The grassy
character of the grape is
muted by the semillon. It's a
very exquisite sauvignon
blanc with a lingering finish.
Robert Mondavi Winery
Reserve Pinot Noir 2005
($60). Mouthfilling black
cherry fruit from Carneros
with delicate tannins and hint
of clove and vanilla. Although
packing a lot of understated
power, it is an exquisite wine
with a long finish.
Robert Mondavi Winery
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon


2004 ($125). Blended with 12
percent cabernet franc and 2
percent petit verdot, this is
one powerful wine. Rich tex-
ture, ripe black berry aromas
with a hint of licorice and
spice in the nose. Generous
and complex plum and cassis
flavors with big tannins and a
long finish. It is a world-class
wine. Mondavi was among
the leaders to establish
California's cabernet sauvi-
gnon program and the rep-
utation lives on with this
wine.
WINE OF THE WEEK
Valentin Bianchi Elsa
Malbec 2006 ($9). Argentina
is the best producer of malbec
and here's a great value.
Simple plum and blueberry
notes with a violet nose and
hint of sweet vanillin oak.
Bianchi also makes a spectacu-
lar 2005 Particular Malbec
($30) that sports more
intense, ripe plum fruit and
soft, silky tannins.


Get ready; football season is upon us


T he Big Guy is getting
ready for the season. He
is going to be watching
not playing, but there is some
advance preparation. All the
televisions and remotes are
standing ready for action.
In case you have been in a
cave or under a rock and have
missed it football season is
about to start. There have
been some teaser games -
exhibition and preseason.
They don't count, literally.
Some folks wonder how we
Southerners know when the
seasons change. Things stay
green and our leaves don't
change colors, but there are
signs. You know fall is coming

Matheson: Dust-covered moths


Cont. from B-1
that sprayer stay on for a few
hours only and water as early
in the morning as you can.
I know that for working
households this is an impossi-
bility because you can't be
home to turn the thing off.
Perhaps a neighbor can help
do this for you. Otherwise,
you have to do it in the
evening, and frankly, as long
as we have the humidity, you
are risking a fungus by water-
ing at night. If it is a matter of
a fungus or death due to not
enough water, and if the only
option is at dusk ( after work),
then I'd water then. Just don't
forget to turn off the water.
There is another thing hap-
pening in many lawns now,
and it seems a bit early, but
maybe not. Small, dust-col-
ored moths are flying every-
where when you walk in the
lawn or rub against a bush.


These are the moths that lay
the eggs for the sod web-
worms we always have trou-
bles with in the early fall.
The moths are not the prob-
lem; it is the eggs that they lay
which turn into tiny chewing
caterpillars which eat at the
base of the grass, causing it to
die.
They can also chew along
the blades, killing as they
munch.
If you have a pest control
company, alert them right
away so they can cut into the
cycle, killing the caterpillars. If
you do not have a company
and therefore rely on yourself
or spouse to take care of
things; the most recent. recom-
mendation I got from my
county extension agent, is to
use a product which goes by
three names: Thuricide, Dipel,
or BT (bacillus thurengensis).
She said this is the only one

that will work, even though
there are others out there that
say their product will work
and will last for six months or
whatever.
The above-mentioned prod-
ucts are environmentally
friendly, have been recom-
mended for years to kill chew-
ing insects because they act as
stomach destroyers, but they
do not kill the beneficial
insects like bees, birds which
will eat the webworm caterpil-
lars, etc. The product is avail-
able all over town, and you
need to follow the directions
about concentration and
method of application.
The county agent also said
the liquid form is actually bet-
ter than the granular or dust
form. So, these cute little
moths are not good guys and
need to be dealt with at once,
especially since our lawns are
already under great stress.

Raising the bar on improved
quality of breast healthcare -

The Time Has Come!
Breast cancer is a disease with a rather
unpredictable outcome and is the sec-
ond leading cause of cancer death
among women. More than 150,000
women are diagnosed with breast can-
cer each year and 45,000 women die of
this disease every year in the United
States alone.

Dr. Shahla Masood is-an internation-
ally recognized expert in breast cancer
diagnosis and prognosis and has fostered
the concept of a multidisciplinary ap-
proach in breast cancer care, research
and education.

Dr. Masood specializes in second-opin-

vidual breast health education.

Does your home office work for you?


Dear Jane,
I am in clutter chaos in my
home office. Do you have any
advise on how I can tame this
wild beast?
Help!,
Margo F
Dear Margo,
First, breathe! We have sever-
al easy suggestions that you can
follow to help keep everything
in its place in your home office.
Whether you commute to
work or have your office at
home, it's essential that your
workplace be comfortable.
When we say comfortable we
don't mean satin-sheets-and-
plush-pillows kind of comfort,
but a neat, tidy place where you
can get as much done with min-
imal distraction.
For those who work at home,
this can present a challenge.
Because your office is within
your home, it's easy to "let it go."
There aren't any co-workers to
worry about, or a boss to give
you the "your desk is unsightly"
talk. In fact, it doesn't really
matter what it looks like as long
as you get your work done,
right? Actually, many of our
members have told us they are
much more productive in a
functional and attractive envi-
ronment as opposed to a clutter
filled nightmare. You will see
that a little work on your work
area can go a long way.
Take Karen, one of our Janes-
in-training. She worked from
home in conditions that were
definitely sub par. Her files and
papers were scattered all over
the floor, cardboard boxes were


HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'
piled in the comer about to
burst, and her file cabinets held
both documents and supplies,
making it impossible to find
almost anything. Because the
system was so out of whack,
Karen's place of work wasn't
really working at all.
The problem had reached a
breaking point when Karen's
realized that the disarray of her
home office was keeping her
from doing things she really
wanted to do, such as spend
more time with her family. She
confessed to feeling like she was
"going crazy" trying to keep
track of all of her important
things. All Karen needed was a
little creativity,, storage space
and elbow grease.
Everyone knows that it's near-
ly impossible to get work done
without the proper lighting.
This is no exception if you work
from home the lighting
should be the strength and qual-


ity of any office, but Karen was
living with dim, yellowed lights.
In a matter of minutes we had
switched out those dated fix-
tures for crisp halogen lights
that made a sizeable difference
immediately.
Karen needed a place where
she could have immediate
access to important books and
papers, as well as some surface
space for things like pictures of
her family. The solution?
Floating shelves. Because her
office had slanted ceilings, we
didn't want to add a heavy
bookcase that would appear to
shrink the size of the room. The
.floating shelves were cheap,
easy to install and gave her max-
imal surface area.
Karen's maroon carpet was
not helping her home office in
any way. Replacing the dingy
thing with wood laminate floor-
ing opened up the space and
made it look brighter. Plus, the
material is so easy to maintain
that Karen won't have to worry
about spending a lot of time
cleaning it.
In addition to the improve-
ments, some much-needed stor-
age space was added. Three new
file cabinets were brought in to
hold all of Karen's important
documents. Even though we
had taken care of the lighting
earlier, a few new lamps were
thrown into supplement the
recessed halogen lights. New
desk chairs were also a necessity.
Being comfortable (but not too
.comfortable) is essential for a
productive day at work.

Ownership change was needed


has suffered some bad
times. One of the icons
in Napa Valley, Robert
Mondavi blazed trails in rais-
ing the bar for this country's
fine wine industry. But mis-
management, family squab-
bles and changing focus even-
tually crippled the winery and
forced the Mondavi clan to
sell the business and the
name to Constellation.
If you want to read more
about one of the most
intriguing family breakups,
pick up "The House of
Mondavi" by Julia Flynn Siler.
Although there is no happy
ending to this pitiful squab-
ble, the ownership change is
probably what the brand
needed to get Mondavi back
on track.
We had a chance to catch
up with the Mondavi wines
during a recent visit with
Mark de Vere, one of about 24
masters of wine in the United
States. A "MW" is an elite
title given to only the best

We suspect Mark was cho-
sen as Mondavi's ambassador

palate. He has been touring
the country challenging peo-
ple like us to blind taste

He pitted the 2005

with the 2003 Moreau

the 2005 Mondavi Reserve
Pinot Noir with the 2003
Nicolas Potel Charmes-
Chambertin Grand Cru, and
the 2004 Mondavi Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon with the
2003 Lafite Rothschild. That's
pretty stiff competition for
even the best California wine.
Of course, all of these wines
were excellent and it was dif-
ficult to leave them unfin-
ished. Given the different vin-
tages and regions, it is hardly
a fair comparison. However, it
wasn't Mark's intention to
show that one wine was bet-
ter than the other. Rather, it
was to show that Mondavi,
despite its recent turmoil, is
still making world-class wine.
Judging the wines purely
on hedonistic pleasure, we
surprisingly preferred the
Mondavi cabernet over the
Lafite Rothschild. It is no
wonder the Mondavi cabernet
(about $125 a bottle) was

Decorator or designer? When to hire professional help


The call came in. It was a
home design gone awry.
The details were over-
whelming, the choices con-
fusing. Which way to go?
Was granite better than mar-
ble in the kitchen and what
colors were the best for the
dining room?
Whether you're remodeling
a kitchen or designing a
whole house, it's easy to. get
sidelined with the details so
that you can't see the house
for the crown moulding. In
those cases, it pays to get
help.
Decorator or designer?
The first stop is to deter-
mine what you need to help
you get your project under
way. If you need space design
and layout advice, an interior
designer is the answer.
Interior designers look at

in addition to aesthetics.
Designers have more exten-
sive training and often have
four year college degrees as
well as being certified by the
American Society of Interior


Designers (ASID). They can
also advise on decoration.
A decorator typically works
with the surface d&cor of a
space and helps select deco-
rative elements, but will
often make suggestions about
utilizing space more effi-
ciently. When you're mak-
ing the choice between work-
ing with a designer or a dec-
orator, it may come down to
what your needs are. If you
don't know where to start
and want to throw your
hands in the air, a designer
could save the day. A design-
er will keep the whole proj-
ect on track.
If you have the project
details down but you're
struggling with decorative
choices, then a decorator is
what you need.

Timely Tips


by KATE WORTH
SHOWER POWER I use
two shower curtains, side by
side, on my rod. When the
family showers, they exit out
the middle. This keeps my
bathroom nice and dry and
free from splashes. Tess C.

TILE CLEANING To make
it easier to clean my bath-
room tiles, I first run the
shower very hot for about five
minutes. After the bathroom
fills with steam, I turn off the
shower and shut the bath-
room door for a few minutes.
This loosens the dirt and
makes it much easier to clean
the tiles. Renee L.

Whenever I buy celery, I cut
off the leaves and wash and
drain them. I then put them
on a cookie sheet and dry the
leaves in the oven. After they
dry, I crush them up and store
them in a jar. I use them to
flavor dishes such as stews
and soups. They add a won-
derful flavor. Barbara S.

GREASY CLEANUP My
family loves bacon, but I hate
the mess it makes all over the
stove when frying. Instead, I
place the bacon on a cookie
sheet and "fry" it in the oven.
There's a lot less splatter.

GROCERY LIST To make
food shopping easier and


quicker, I made a list of all the
items I generally use with a
checkbox next to them and
printed it but on my comput-
er. During the week, I routine-
ly check off what needs
replenishing on my next
shopping trip. Then, armed
with my list, I go to the store.
It really makes shopping
more convenient. Every time
I need the list, it's in my com-
puter, and I just print it out.

tor works differently, so it's
important to understand
exactly how your profession-
al is paid. Many work on a
per project basis and charge a
flat fee. Others will charge
cost-plus. A percentage is
tacked on to the price of any
purchased items, such as fur-
nishings. Still, others work
hourly, like I do.
Many people assume they
can't afford to hire a decora-
tor or a designer. Others are
afraid the designer will sug-
gest expensive options or
over-the-top design ideas.
But you might be surprised
to know that most designers

project, call a local design
firm and ask for a designer or
decorator-who works by the
hour. Many of them are will-
ing to help clients who just
need a sounding board and a
little guidance. And, most of
the time, the ideas you
receive will be very helpful
and help steer you in the
right design direction, ulti-
mately making you feel more
confident about your deci-
sions and your project.
If you have no budget, but
still want design advice, try
your local furniture store. If
you make your purchases
there, many furniture stores
have designers on staff who
can help you arrange your
room and give you decorat-
ing ideas.
You first
A professional will listen to
your needs and help you
translate your ideas into a
workable plan. You should
look for someone who listens
attentively and shows an
interest in your project prior-
ities. And even if you're just
looking for a sounding
board, a qualified profession-
al will present you with
options.
That's what I find my
clients are usually looking for
- a way to take what they
have and make it better.
They just don't know what
their options for doing that


are. Just like a therapist, a
design pro will listen well
and take your desires into
account.

We're Proud of our Winners
In the summer reading challenges
at our Beaches libraries.
Children and youth were invited to read and enter several con-
tests this summer at the Ponte Vedra Branch Library and the
Beaches Branch Library. Books completed could count toward
reaching a BinGO, reading and researching could win prizes in
the Scavenger Hunts at each location, and artistic interpretations
of books were also recognized. We are proud of each and every
young person who entered and enjoyed reading.
Each winner received a certificate and a prize from The Beaches
Leader, Ponte Vedra Leader and Publix Super Markets. Here are a
few of the winners who came by The Leader office to pick up
their prizes.
