inventory up

Ponte Vedra Beach has not
been immune to the housing
sales slump experienced this
year in Northeast Florida and
across the state.
There are more houses on
the market in, the Ponte
Vedra area compared with
this time last year. Typically,
they are taking longer to sell
and in some areas, are selling
for less.
As of Oct. 11, there were
632 single-family homes and
322 condominiums listed on
the market in the Ponte
Vedra area, according to the
Northeast Florida Association
of Realtors (NEFAR).
That's 56 more homes and
57 more condos than were
actively listed as of Oct. 19,
There were 333 houses sold
in Ponte Vedra this year as of
Oct. 11, compared with 399
sold during the same period
last year.
Among houses that sold,
time on the market has
increased an average of 36

Says this year compared with
last year.
Time on the market for
sold houses ranged from 139
days for houses east of State
Road A1A and north of
Corona Road to 90 days for
houses west of A1A and
south of Solana Road.
Last year, those numbers
were 102 days and 71 days,
Average sales prices have
dropped in some areas of
Ponte Vedra, but in others,
average prices increased.
In the area east of A1A and
north of Corona Road, the
average sale price was $1.6
million for this year through
Oct. 11, compared with $1.4
million in the same period
last year.
But the average sales price
for houses west of A1A and
north of Solana Road is
$817,000, down nearly
$200,000 from last year.
Faring much worse are
condo sales, which are down
in all areas of Ponte Vedra
compared with last year.

Twenty years after the $40

St. Johns County commis-
sioners Tuesday will review
plans for a major expansion
and upgrade of the resort on
PGA Tour Boulevard just west
of State Road AIA.
.The cost of the project -
"well over" $200 million -
approaches the amount paid
for the resort in July 2006,
according to Vernon Kelly, for-
mer president of PGA Tour
Golf Course Properties now
working on the Marriott proj-
ect for the new owners.-
The improvements are
planned to bring the resort up
to the standards of its neigh-
bor the TPC Stadium
Course, where the annual

The course was extensively
renovated in the months lead-
ing to this year's tournament
in May, when the lavish new
TPC clubhouse also opened. ..
'"The missing element is the
hotel accommodations," Kelly
said in a recent telephone
The project, which requires
a major modification of the
Marriott/Players Club Planned
Unit Development (PUD),
proposes the following
changes, among others: .
Replacing the existing
Villa rental units with up to
400 luxury condominiums
that will be priced at the top
of the Ponte Vedra Beach
condo market;
Adding 160 hotel rooms
"housed in a five-star luxury
hotel annex that will be con-
nected to the existing hotel,"
according to plans, bringing
the total of hotel rooms to

Replacing the 475-space
parking lot with a parking

Replacing the 75-seat

seats 150;
Expanding the 8,000-
square-feet of hotel retail
space by 15,000 square feet,
Expanding exhibit hall
facilities by 24,000 square feet,
bringing the total to 139,000
square feet.
The St. Johns County
Planning and Zoning Agency
unanimously approved the
plans Oct. 4.
County staff had no objec-
tion to the massive project,
noting in a report that "the
changes to the hotel are neces-
sary to complete the vision of
the PGA Tour through the
Players Championship."
The project "will allow the

Smooth sailing

for PV marina


At Wednesday's Ponte Vedra Architectural
Review Committee (ARC) meeting, it was
smooth sailing for a proposed marina that has
experienced four years of sometimes rough
ARC members voted unanimously to
approve plans for the Marina Club at Ponte
Vedra, to be located on the east bank of the
Intracoastal Waterway at the intersection of
County Road 210 and Roscoe Boulevard.
That news brought great relief to Randy
McNeal, principal developer of the marina,
who originally bought the land in November
"It's been a long time coming, thank you,"
McNeal told ARC members after they
approved his plans at the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library.
The vote means McNeal can apply for a
building permit, which he says can take 45 to
60 days to acquire.
At last month's ARC meeting, members
refused to sanction the marina until more
specific details about the boat storage facility
were known.
At issue was a lack of foliage along one side
of the boat storage facility in McNeal's plans.
But McNeal came back with plans that

Talent on display at The Players Community Senior Center show

Four individuals and two groups
strutted their stuff Wednesday at
the Senior Talent Show at The
Players Community Senior Center
in Ponte Vedra Beach.
"It's just performing. No prizes.
We just want everybody to get up
and show us their talent," said Vicki
Van Horn, the facility's site coordi-
Patricia Frank tap danced, Ursula
Weinrich played her unique C
Harmonica. Helen Geisler did a
reading, and Alan McWilliam, the
center's chef, played the piano.
"He's fabulous," Van Hornsaid of
"I play by ear and don't do
requests," McWilliam, who is self-
taught, said of his piano skills.
The chef occasionally plays for
the seniors after lunch.
"I get a very nice round of
applause. They're good people," he
said of his audience.
As to whether he gets more
applause for his piano work or his
food, McWilliam said, "I'll have to
say it's right up there, but not as
good as the food."
The chef said he sometimes gets a
little uncomfortable at the key-
board "because I'm kind of an

introvert. Get me in the kitchen,
and I'm fine. Put me out here, I start
After his performance, mistress of
ceremonies Jean Shoff said to
McWilliam, "Your music is just like
your food. Excellent."
Also performing were the
Neptune Beach Senior Activity
Center-based Sassy Tappers and a
Sawgrass Country Club barbershop
group, Sons of Beaches [SOBs].
The SOBs have been together for
seven years.
"Most of us are members of
Sawgrass Country Club, but not all
of us. Actually we're a spinoff of
Connie Quinlan's Sawgrass Singers.
We decided to form this little sub-
set and do barbershop. We enter-
tain around the area, nursing
homes, things of that sort," said
Bernie Oechsli, one of the group's
lead voices.
The SOBs, who perform approxi-
mately 12 times a year, are led by
Jack Peterson. While they appear
mainly locally, they did sing for a
business gathering at the Omni
Hotel in Jacksonville.
"We had about 500 people in that
audience. That's probably the
largest crowd we've ever sung to,"
said Oeschsli.
Richard Pelletier, one of The

Players Community Senior Center's
regular volunteers, used to be a
Sassy Tapper.
"I started with the Sassy Tappers,
but gave it up because I was the
only male involved," Pelletier said
of the group, which now has two
male members.
His six-month involvement came
two years ago.
"We miss him very much," said
current Tapper Georgia Goodling,
one of 28 females in the group.
Frank tap danced Wednesday
despite having had two back opera-
tions and one knee surgery.
"I think I have a lot of nerve," she
said before her performance.
Frank learned to dance in a
school her mother had in New
"I used to run to New York for les-
sons when I was a teenager. I per-
form with the Beaches Women's
Club once in a while."
Weinrich performed on a
German C-Harmonica. Her instru-
ment dates back to 1880.
"It's a push button accordion.
Each knob has two tones," she said.
"I'm amazed what a good sound it
Weinrich played a C Harmonica
in her homeland of Germany until
she was 16.

"It was the last time. And then
never again, until about four years
ago, when I found it in Colorado,"
she said.
"There's so much talent here, we
should rename The Players
Community Senior Center 'The
Players Community Senior Talent
Center," Julie Wright, the center's
program coordinator, said in her
introductory comments.

The Leader's Opinion

Slow down JB

land acquisition

Fact: Real estate prices here are lower than they were just
a year ago.
Fact: Jacksonville Beach Community Redevelopment
Agency member Bill Hillegass, a certified public account-
ant with a long history of public service, has the creden-
tials to question a multi-million dollar transaction.
Those facts are relevant when you consider the
Redevelopment Agency voted this week, 2-1 with Hillegass
dissenting, to proceed with buying land on 2nd Street
between 3rd and 4th avenues north. The land is to be used
to create more parking in the downtown area and will cost
the city $4.86 million.
Is that a good deal?
Citizens can't be certain.
The appraisals used to calculate the purchase price are
not available for public review until a purchase agreement
is set, according to city staff.
Hillegass said he would want to see the appraisals, which
include reports on comparable property sales in the area,
before approving the expenditure. He correctly noted that
inflated appraisal prices and the high sales cost do not cor-
respond with the current market.
City staff said afterward that information on compara-
bles is available to interested agency members who visit
City Hall in advance of the meeting. Those details were
not, however, included in the packet of information used
by agency members at the meeting.
Certainly more complete information could and
should be provided those entrusted with spending mil-
lions of public dollars.
Until that information is provided to all the agency
members not just the bare quorum that managed to
make it to this week's meeting a purchase agreement
should.not be finalized.
The real estate market has slowed down. The city should
do the same before it commits millions when there are
questions about the exact value of what the city is getting.

Patient praises Planned

Parenthood's services

To the editor:
I've seen several very negative
letters regarding the new
Planned Parenthood office at
the Beach. If I may offer a dif-
ferent perspective on their serv-
ices and how they helped me:
At age 36 I moved here with
my husband from the Midwest.
I was taking the pill, not only
for birth control but-for needed
hormone regulation. I had very
responsibly gone to my OB/Gyn
before we left and refilled my
pill prescription only to have
the pills and all of our other
worldly possessions stuck in a
snowstorm in Chicago for two

So here I was, in a strange
town, no doctor, no 'job, no
health insurance and without
the medicine I needed. Thank
the Lord for Planned
Parenthood. The staff was great.
They treated me like family, got
me an emergency pill supply
and looked after my health for
years afterward. I got great
medical care from people -who
wanted the best for me. Thank
you Planned Parenthood for
being there when I needed you.

Quick release means unsafe streets

To the editor:
Many of Jacksonville's finest police officers
have seen trying to protect our streets as being
SUpon arrest these criminals are secured. They
follow the initial time consuming process of
booking, afterward the inmate awaits first appear-
ance. This is where their actions and time spent
are made meaningless. Many judges in Duval
County have not been serving justice to the citi-
zens of Jacksonville. Many of the criminals (no
matter the extent of the charge for example: DUI,
driving with a suspended license, possession of
drugs and misdemeanor charges) are released on
time served at their first appearance court dates.
They are free to walk the streets with no conse-
quence to their accounts.
When polled, the corrections officers, whom I
will not name, state that they are disgusted by
these judges' decisions. They also feel as if their
hands are tied in this situation. They can not and
will not speak to the public about this matter.
Check the arrest sheets and charges of the court
house records web site,
If pulled as evidence, you will be astonished at
the findings. Now check the released, you will
find many inmates who are released on recogni-
zance or time served.
Many feel this is the judges' and jail's way of
addressing the overcrowding issue. This is not an
efficient or 'corrt way of addressing this matter.
The jail has been so inefficient, so ask yourself
this, "why did our police department just receive
a 7 percent increase in their budget?"
The last and most important issue to be

addressed would be Jacksonville's murder rate.
When questions are asked to repeat offenders
about these issues, many have said that they feel
our judicial system is a joke. This is why citizens
feel the need to take matters into their own
Alternatives for these issues would maximize
our resources and keep the streets of Jacksonville
Here are a few alternatives; putting non-violent,
inmates in temporary housing tents at the prison
farm while they await sentencing, for example as
Brevard County,does.
We must reveal the message that if you do the
crime you will serve the time. The jail to many
repeat offenders is like a revolving door.
Witnesses have even heard judges tell these repeat
offenders if they plead guilty there will be no
more court dates, just time served and they could
go home today.
It would be more beneficial if these judges
make these repeat offenders post bond and have
the proper surveillance as well as be in the cus-
tody of the courts. These alternatives would be
more appropriate, rather than letting repeat
offenders go to commit further crimes.
You have to ask yourself, "were we better ioff
when we had tighter control over the crime ele-
ments?" Or now, with the high rate of crime we
have? I think the answer is obvious.
In conclusion, the people of lacksonmille need
to know how our elected officials are spending
our tax dollars and risking the safety of
Jacksonville residents.

Friends' book sale owes thanks to many

To the editor:
WOW! The support of Beaches residents for
the Friends of the Beaches Branch Library
Donated Book Sale continues to amaze me.,
-Hundreds took time from their busy schedules to
visit our event.
Those who purchased more' than $14,000
worth .of deeply discounted reading material are
to be thanked. But they are not the only people
who make our two book sales so successful.
Without donations from households across the
barrier island and in the West Beaches' our sale
could not be nearly as good. Thanks for culling
such good material from the book shelves in your
homes. We estimate that we receive more than
30,000 books from members of our community.
There is a third much smaller group that forms
the backbone of our donated book sales. Members
of the FOBBL Sorting Committee donate time 52
weeks a year to process the boxes of donated
material. A cadre of approximately 100 volunteers
does yeoman's duty each October and April.
These include people who count out and distrib-
ute sale information to the public and private
schools and preschools east of Kerian Blvd.
Another dedicated group gathers the week prior
to-the sale to transport books from our three stor-
age units to the library. Loading and unloading

heavy boxes of books and media is a difficult task
in Florida's heat. A dedicated crew unpacks books
and organizes them in the categories designed for
shopper ease.
Corporate support from Publix supermarkets in
Marsh Landing and Atlantic Beach, First Coast
Cleaners and K-Mart helped us to spread the word
about our sale.
When I think of all the people who joined our
Donated Book Sale team, I'm really humbled.
There efforts make it possible for the Beaches
Branch Library to offer many programs that are
not "in the budget", Last year more than $30,000
raised by FOBBL went back into the library at the
beach. Working with library' staff to determine
needs, we purchased shelving, books and newspa-
pers, and DVDs. Additional funds provided the
Dr. Seuss Read-a-thon in March and numerous
speakers and events for children and teens.
When I put it on paper I realize why ours is the
only [Duval County] library that has its own book
sale. (other branches contribute to the massive
event downtown each March). It certainly takes a
community to make a successful book sale. For
this I thank you.

Districting will protect west Atlantic Beach

To the editor:
Yes this is another letter about district repre-
sentation but first I'd like to thank The Leader for
the Atlantic Beach voting district map that was
printed Oct. 5. This map clearly showed how one
sided the commission has been over the years.
All the commissioners and mayors have resided
in a small strip of Atlantic Beach very close to the
oceanfront. This arrangement naturally distances
the commissioners from issues that affect west-
side residents and tends to direct their focus on
issues that affect their neighborhood. Isn't this
what happened the past year?
Big box houses, the 5-way intersection, the
mailbox that couldn't find a home, unfinished
sidewalks, large lot subdivision in Selva Marina,
etc were all beachside issues that took a large part
of the commissions' time and effort.
This is not to say that all of the commissioners
were uncaring. I felt that they listened when I
brought some concerns before the board but the
fact is that my neighborhood and other parts of
Atlantic Beach have no vote on the commission.
Let me express it in a more serious way. What
if the newly elected commission is very pro-
development and decides to allow large develop-
ers to clear the marsh behind my home and
build a row of 35-ft.high condos? This is not a
far-fetched idea and our neighborhood would be
powerless to stop it because we are not represent-
ed on the commission. We could organize, rant,
and rave all we wanted to but nothing could stop
a financially motivated commission that is deter-
mined to maximize the development of Atlantic

With district representation, a commissioner
who lived in our neighborhood and who under-
stood the negative effect of the condos on the
surrounding residents would most likely object to
such development. A commissioner living in our
neighborhood would understand what it means
to deal with Mayport Road traffic, prostitutes
walking our streets, a noisy flyover, a large block
of abandoned apartment buildings, a dangerous
pedestrian crossing at Plaza Road, etc. more than
a commissioner living within three blocks of the
ocean. I believe district representation passed
because most residents including ones living
beachside understand that citizens have the
right to representation and that when it is denied
it is not fair. I believe this is what our mayor
meant when he said justice has been served.
Being represented in our government is such a
basic right in our society that it is hard for me to
understand the motives behind those that
oppose it.
By the way Mr. Gulliford, I know there are
many residents in my neighborhood that are
more qualified to be leaders on the commission
than I am, but I'm willing and would be honored
to run for the commission seat if no other resi-
dents stepped up to the plate. Thank you to the
mayor and the commissioners who were willing
to support district representation even if it cost
them politically. It was the right thing to do.

It's hard

to make

plans a


he Glatting Jackson
(GJ) plan for
Do w n t o w n
Jacksonville Beach is won-
derful and I fully support it.
I wish I had little more con-
fidence that it actually will
Sbe implemented. Oh, I
know we will do some of it.
I am sure we will tear up the
streets again, redo the
boardwalk again, rearrange
on-street parking again, and
put in more landscaping the
city can't afford to take care
of. But I really have doubts
the city will abandon its
Entertainment District fan-
tasy and support a strong
residential component for
downtown, the linchpin of
the GJ plan.'
In fact, the GJ plan is not
much different from our
existing plan for down-
town, which I also support
and have tried to follow. For
those unfamiliar with our
existing plan, you can pull
it up on the City's website:
jacksonvillebeach.org. Both
plans propose a mixed-use
New-Urban approach with a
strong residential compo-
nent, both have-a.acouple of-
parking garages, both
- address streetscaping, and
both stress design stan-
dards. You see we are pretty
good at preparing plans,
just not too good at imple-
menting them.
The devil is in the details
and the GJ plan raises some
interesting questions. The
plan calls for development
of city-owned property.
Since the Planning Director
stated we don't have much
luck with public/private
partnerships, you kind of
wonder, how this will be
done. Will the city sell the
property to a developer and
if so how will the property
be encumbered to ensure
plan compliance? Will the
city develop the property
itself and then sell it? Will it
be the landlord? It will be
interesting to see these
issues addressed during
upcoming council discus-
Actually, we haven't seen
the entire plan, the most
important part has not yet
been revealed. GJ is suppos-
edly still preparing revisions
to our land development
code to create an overlay
district. This really is the
crux of the matter. Our
development standards for
downtown are derived from
suburban Greenfield stan-
dards of the 1970s. You can
see the result, lots of vacant
land with mostly only non-
conforming structures
viable. The real problem
downtown, other than pub-
lic safety and lack of
enforcement, is that our
land development stan-
dards for downtown are
inappropriate and antiquat-
As one example, a key
concept of the GJ plan is
that buildings frame the
street, like an old-time
downtown. Our regulations
require commercial devel-
opment have a 23-foot-
wide, 2-way drive. This
pushes buildings back away
from the street instead of
framing it as Dan Burton of
Walkable Communities
pointed out during his visit.
This is only one of many
examples of how you could
not possibly implement the
GJ plan under our current
land use code.
The GJ plan will. never
succeed unless and until we
revamp our land develop-
ment standards for down-
town, no matter how much
support it gets.

Public hearing Tuesday

on plan for drainage fee


Some Ponte Vedra resi-
dents could be paying an
extra $78 per year for a new
stormwater utility if the
current proposal is accepted
by St. Johns County com-
Commissioners will hold
the first public hearing on
the plan at their meeting
Tuesday in St. Augustine.
In August, commissioners
voted to create the utility
based on a countywide
stormwater utility rate
County officials are con-
ducting an ad campaign to
inform the public about the
utility and receive input
from those who would be
affected by the ordinance.
As part of that campaign,
Public Works director Joe
Stephenson gave a presenta-
tion outlining the stormwa-
ter utility's uses and fees to
the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition Monday.
Because there is currently
no dedicated funding
source for drainage services,
Stephenson explained, a fee
needs to be implemented to

offset costs.
"Every time we spend on
drainage, we take out of the
transportation trust fund,"
Stephenson said.
Under language in the
current proposal, there are
no exceptions to the utility
fee, even for residents
whose drainage system
dumps into waters not
maintained by the county.
Residents in private com-
munities, who pay for
drainage systems there, use
roads and other public facil-
ities that do drain into
county waters, and they are
therefore expected to pay
the stormwater utility fee,
according to an August
The ordinance would,
however, reduce the rate 50
percent for homeowners
who have a privately oper-
ated drainage facilities.
The $78 fee is based on a
single-family home larger
than 1,800 square feet. For a
single-family home with
less than 1,800 square feet,
the fee would be 40 percent
Condominiums would
also get a 40 percent dis-
The original proposal in

August stated that a
stormwater utility was
needed because "our abun-
dant rainfall and rapid
development cause capacity
problems for existing sys-
According to county
administrator .Michael
Wanchik's Oct. 19 online
posting, there were 380
drainage-related service
requests from Sept. 12
through Oct. 12.
Northeast St. Johns
County accounted for 96 of
those requests. Many
required heavy pumping of
retention ponds and neigh-
borhoods that flooded due
in last month's heavy rains.
The first of two required
public hearings on the pro-
posal, which would amend
a 1994 ordinance, is item
No. 14 on the commission's
agenda for Tuesday. The
meeting begins at 9 a.m. in
the county auditorium, off
U.S. 1 just north of St.
, The commission istenta-
tively scheduled to vote on
the ordinance after a sec-
ond hearing at 5:30 p.m.

As of Oct. 11, 160 condos
had been sold this year in the
Ponte Vedra area, compared
with 349 sold during the same

Rash of car burglaries prompts call for help

Jacksonville Beach police are
reaching out to citizens to help
to stop a recent rash of auto
burglaries that have occurred
throughout the city.
An automated message was
sent Tuesday to all residents
alerting them of the criminal
activity and offering tips to
protect their property.
"The message is to make
everyone aware of the recent
car burglaries and what to do
to prevent becoming a victim,"
Police Sgt. Tom Bingham said.

Over the past 30 days, 46 car
burglaries were reported city-
wide, with the highest concen-
tration in the Ocean Forrest
subdivision, the residential
neighborhoods near Osceola
Avenue and South Beach

Golf marathon benefits home

The 2nd Annual St.
Anthony's Home Golf
Marathon will be held on
Monday, November 5 at the
Ponte Vedra Golf and Country
Volunteers at St. Paul's
Catholic Church are organizing
the event. It will benefit St.
Anthony's which is home to 45
children ages 3 months to 16
years in Kingston, Jamaica, said
Tomnmy Taylor, one of the
organizers and a Board member
at St. Anthony's.
D)a mage from Hurricane Dean
has made. the need at St.
Anthonv's even greater this
year, he said. While some of the
children who live there are
orphans, the poverty is so bad
that others have families who
are unable to take care of them.
The children and staff at St.
Anthony's grow a large portion
of the food they consume on
land surrounding the home.
The hurricane destroyed their
fruit trees and much of the veg-
etable crops. It will be necessary
to reseed and replant most of
the land, he said.
Volunteers from the annual
8th Grade mission trips from St.
Paul's worked on these projects
last spring, said Taylor.
Golfers do not pay a fee to
participate but a goal of $2500
in pledges has been set for each
team that plays.

The marathon will begin at
about daybreak and continue
until late afternoon.
Openings for golfers to partic-
ipate in the Marathon are still
available. Also needed are spon-
sors to support the marathon in
various ways including pledges.
Information about -the Golf
Marathon is available from
Taylor at 334-3078 or from Mike
Krivensky at 945-3759.

Success may

help Jaguars

prevent more

TV blackouts

Fans didn't have much to
say about the Jacksonville
Jaguars' 29-7 loss to
Indianapolis following
Monday's game.
One thing I did hear
though was "blackout."
Although the Jags play on
the road for the next three
weeks (meaning all games will
be televised), the fans might
be right when the team plays
in its next home game.
Problem is, there are quite a
few factors that may lead up
to a blackout when the San
Diego Chargers come to town
Nov. 18.
It doesn't help that quarter-
back David Garrard may be on
the sideline, too. Garrard's
sprained ankle during the loss
to the defending Super Bowl
champs could keep him off the
field for three or four weeks.
Fans forget that the Jags are
still a 4-2 team this season,
with one of.those losses com-
ing from one of the league's
Problem is, it's hard to be
strong believers in the team
when it continues to play fol-
low the leader to the Colts in
tie AF6C'Qouth;- --...;
'Being second may be O.K.
in the division, but it won't
guarantee a playoff spot. And
fans won't pay money to go
see a non-playoff caliber team.
Ever see an Arizona
Cardinals game, with all those
empty seats in the back-
ground? Nease High School
can pack a house better.
Second is how much it costs
to attend a game.
As little as I know, I'm pret-
ty sure there are plenty of die-
hard Jags fans out there that
simply can't afford to see the
team play live.
Unless you get them free (or
at least cheaper outside the
stadium on game day), tickets
will cost you $42 for the most
inexpensive seats in the stadi-
um (although there aren't
really any terrible seats in
Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium). So for one fan and
a special "other," the initial
tally is $84. .
Then you have to park your
car, (unless you use one of the
shuttles provided by JTA).
For a spot within a 200-
calorie walk from the stadium,
you will shell out another
$35. Ten dollars gets you the
shuttle, meaning the cheapest
way to get in the gate is $94,
or just slightly cheaper than
an ounce of Beluga caviar
from Medure.
Beer and food are also
slightly overpriced, but then
again, someone has to pay for
Matt Jones to stand there and
do nothing.
About $20 will get you a
soda, hot dog and some fries,
for one person. I've dined at
fine restaurants for cheaper.
Unquestionably, Jaguars
games are expensive, which
means it's tough to sell
enough tickets each home
game for the rest of the city to
see it on TV. It's one of'those
Catch-22s: If the games aren't
on TV, it's difficult to build a
following. Without a follow-
ing, ticket sales lag.
Still, as evidenced Monday
night, a stadium packed with
70,000 screaming fans can be
And while the Jags are doing
very well this season the
playoffs are still a possibility -
real fans should be occupying
those tiny teal seats.
Ticket sales would most
likely go up if the prices came
down, but die-hard fans
should pay whatever the cost
to see the Jags play.
Ultimately, blackouts mean
only one thing: There are not
enough true die-hard Jaguars
fans in this city.

Panthers seek to defend district title

Showdown with Yellow Jackets

marks third match between the

rivals this volleyball season

Nease High School is one
win away from defending its
district tournament champi-
onship at St. Augustine High
The only thing remaining in
the Panthers' path is the host
team, which got past Pedro
Menendez Tuesday night to
advance to Thursday's final.
The match will mark the
first time in nearly six years
that a Nease-Menendez final
will not take place.
The Panthers advanced with
an easy win over Clay High
School, 25-15, 25-15, 25-14,
on Tuesday.
Chelsea Kirschman recorded
11 kills and had three blocks
for the Panthers and Jordan
Cangelosi added another seven
kills in the win. Cangelosi has
earned a starting spot for her
recent play, according to Nease
head coach Dawn Madden.
Kamryn Sherman had 29
assists, four aces on 10.service

points and 10 digs.
Senior Paige DePriest served
three aces on 13 service points
and added eight digs in the
Cierra Pillsbury recorded a
game-high 13 digs.
The win extends Nease's
unblemished record in the dis-
trict over the past three sea-
sons and adds to this season's
already impressive 21-5 record,
which Madden claims is the
team's best ever, at least in her
10 years coaching at the
The Nease-St. Augustine dis-
trict final showdown Thursday
night marked the third time
the teams met this season. On
Sept. 13'at home, the Panthers
prevailed in three games, 25-

In the rematch Oct. 10 at St.
Augustine, the results was sim-
ilar. Nease won in straight
games, 25-13, 25-14, 25-15.
Both teams will advance
into the regional quarterfinals

Tebow leads Gators into rivalry game

Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow picks up yardage against Georgia in last year's showdown
in Jacksonville. The former Nease High star leads the Gators into Saturday's big rivalry game
against the Bulldogs at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. A beyond-capacity crowd is expected for
the annual battle, which is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff.


ore right shoulder and all,
Tim Tebow is set to lead
his Florida Gators into bat-
tle Saturday against Georgia in
front of his hometown crowd.
Tebow, a sophomore who
helped pilot Nease High to the
2005 Class 4A state champi-
onship, saw only spot duty last

This year, however, it's the
Tebow Show as the defending
national champions seek to
maintain at least a share of first
place in the Southeaster
Conference's East division.
In his first year as the'starter,
Tebow has emerged as one of
the leading candidates for the
Heisman Trophy, college foot-
ball's top individual honor. His
statistics are certainly eye-open-
ing: The 6'3", 235-pound QB
has completed 115 of 174 pass
attempts (66.1 percent) for
1,711 yards and 17 touchdowns
with three interceptions.
Tebow has also carried the
ball 125 times for 578 yards
and 10 more TDs.
The sophomore has been
Florida's main offensive
weapon in building a 5-2 mark
this season.
Tebow is coming off perhaps
his best performance of the
season in last week's 45-37 vic-
tory over SEC foe Kentucky. He
threw for a career-high four
touchdowns and ran the ball
20 times for 78 yards and a trip
to the end zone.

After suffering a bruised
shoulder against the Wildcats,
Tebow has been limited to
non-contact drills this week in
"He's getting about 20 carries
a game, but a lot of those are

play," head coach Urban Meyer
told reporters this week.
"When you take that away

he's a normal quarterback -
but he's not what Tim Tebow is

"The thing we have to
understand is we can't get him
While Florida is loaded with
offensive weapons like kick

Percy Harvin and Andre
Caldwell, it is Tebow who caus-

"I've seen quarterbacks who
can run, but not with that kind
of power and toughness. And
he's throwing the ball extreme-
ly well," Georgia coach Mark
Richt said in a news confer-
ence. "He's a leader and he's
just tough. And that makes the
whole football team tough."
The Bulldogs have a punch-

Carney gets a kick out of living in Jax Beach

On September 11 of this

"We were fortunate," Carney

The Cameys were living in

Max McGee, the former
Green Bay Packers
wide receiver who
caught the first touchdown
pass of the very first Super
Bowl, died this past weekend.
The 75-year-old McGee was
attempting to clear leaves from
the gutters of his Minneapolis
Apparently, his wife was
away at the time, but had
warned him against going up
there alone. Police and rescue
were called to the scene, but
efforts to revive McGee were
Annually, thousands of peo-
ple get hurt falling from lad-
ders while working on their
rooftops. Often it is a place
many of them simply should
not be.
Each year there are approxi-
mately over 400,000 people
who fall from ladders and end
up needing emergency medical
treatment according to statis-
tics from the Consumer
Product Safety Commission.
Worse, like McGee, some 300
people a year lose their lives.
I once took care of a man
who fell from his roof while
trying to string some
Christmas lights across the top
of his house. He leaned out too
far, the ladder slipped, and he
ended up in the hospital for a

. 'wter



few days with a leg fracture
that required surgery.
Thanks to him, I have since
been able to get out of doing
this at my-house. I have had
many other cases of people
hurt in similar manners. They
are up there for all sorts of rea-
sons; blowing leaves, cleaning
gutters, washing windows, and
adjusting the satellite dish to
name a few.
Why they are up there really
doesn't matter, for gravity
treats them all the same.
Injuries range from wrist frac-
tures to spinal cord and head
trauma, to death. For elderly
persons, the risks are even
greater for balance is often

compromised, strength is
reduced, and bones are more
If you must get up there,
there are some steps you can
take to reduce your risk for
injury or accident. Many these
accidents could be prevented
with some simple precautions,
such as making sure your lad-
der it is on even ground, and
have someone steady it from
You should keep your body
centered between the rails of
the ladder at all times and
avoid reaching too far above or
to the sides of the ladder.
Never step on the top step of
the ladder.
If you have to get up on
your roof, you should do so at
a time when the roof is com-
pletely dry, without any mois-
ture from recent precipitation,
frost, or dew. A ladder should
always have four points of
contact with the working sur-
face, and pressure on each leg
should be proportional. The
climber must always maintain
three points of contact with
the ladder.
McGee was an unlikely
Super Bowl star, with only four
receptions for 91 yards during
the 1966 regular season. He
wasn't even scheduled to play
in the title game against the
Kansas City Chiefs, having vio-

lated the team curfew while
out partying the night before
the big game.
However, 'due to another
player separating a shoulder on
the Packers' second drive,
McGee was called into action
by coach Vince Lombardi. He
even had to borrow a helmet
because he left his own in the
locker room.
A few plays later, McGee
made a one-handed snare of a
37-yard pass from Bart Starr
and ran into the end zone and
into the record books.
After his playing days,
McGee became a Packers radio
broadcaster, co-founded the
Chi-Chi's chain of Mexican
restaurants, and founded the
Max McGee National Research
Center for Juvenile Diabetes at
the Children's Hospital of
Wisconsin in 1999.

native John Tilly heads for

Hawaii and surf research


Surfing is a
way of life
for Beaches .
native John
Tully. Tully, 47,
grew up in
Ponte Vedra
and has run a
surfing camp
in front of his
home at 16th
Avenue South
in Jacksonville
Beach for the
past 12 years.
Now Tully
has the oppor-
tunity to move
to Hawaii and
work with
innovators in :::
the surfing industrylticluding
extreme surfer Garrett
"I'm going to be working
with some guys who are
inventing new technology to
make stronger, lighter surf-
boards and cores for surf-
boards," Tully said. "I'll be
working with the best people
in the world and learning a
"I'm also partnering with
Garrett McNamara to launch
a surf school."
Tully met McNamara over
the years of traveling to
Hawaii. McNamara won the
Billabong XXL in 2007 for the
biggest paddle in wave at the
surfing spot known as
Mavericks in Northern
California and is also known
as one of the best tow-in
surfers in the world. His latest
venture is glacier surfing, rid-
ing waves generated by huge
chunks of glacier that break
off and fall into the ocean,
featured in this month's
Surfer magazine.
Tully started traveling to
the North Sho0ff Haiv~if.for.
surf trips in. the late 1980s. He
has surfed spots such as
Sunset Beach, Pipeline and
Waimea over the years. The
move to Hawaii is also the .
beginning of a new life for
Tully and his wife, Nicki, who
were married in Hawaii on
Feb. 17, 2007. The couple will
be living in the Makaha
Valley on the island of Oahu.
"She's originally from
Virginia Beach, Va., but a
friend' introduced us here in
Jax Beach and we started
going to Hawaii together
about five years now," Tully
"We both feel like it's where
we want to be."
When Tully was in the third
grade he moved with his fam-
ily from New York to an
.oceanfront home in Ponte
Vedra. He said he used to steal
his sister's surfboard and take
it out in front of their house
until he learned how to ride.
"When we first moved to
Ponte Vedra there was an
older crew of surfers at the
time who I watched and I was
enthralled with surfing," Tully
recalls. "I started surfing in
November 1968. I just devel-
oped and kept getting better."
At the age of 11 Tully was
asked to surf for the Hobie
Surf team and started surfing
competitively in ESA events.
"By 1971 he was by far the
best surfer in his age group,"
said longtime friend Mitch
Kaufmann, director of the
North Florida district of the
Eastern Surfing Association
"He was so good that even
adults would watch in amaze-
ment. He was quiet, humble
and liked by all.
"His surfing on a short or
longboard is still extraordi-
nary and he has always been

one of Jax's best tube riders."
Tully first started traveling
to California to surf when he
was 16 and
moved to San
Clemente, Cal.
after high

Dinner theater

imitates life

ast weekend, I watched
a man get poisoned,
electrocuted then
stabbed to death while enjoy-
ing a dinner of cornish hen,
green beans and sweet pota-
Trying to guess who killed *
a radio DJ during dinner
proved more difficult than
anticipated, but then murder
mystery dinners are meant to
be just that a mystery.
A weekend getaway in
Orlando with the family
somehow resulted in me
attending a dinner theater
show that paralleled a work
day in many ways.
To set the stage:
We were escorted to a
room by a Sherlock Holmes
look alike and my family was


Two indigenous trees add fall color

ctober is nearing an
end and it is still
humid and warm. This
has affected many landscape
issues, not the least of which
is the lack of color change
that usually is seen in a few
varieties of plants.
I always look forward to
poison sumac's red color, and
to the deep orange berries on
Pyracantha and Nandina, but
so far these haven't appeared.
My husband and I are
going to New Hampshire this
weekend to close our cabin,
and I hear that leaf peepers
up there are disappointed as
well. I'll bet you that just
when we are ready go into
the lake to remove the dock,
a Canadian front with strong
cold winds and rain decides
to make its appearance.
There are two trees that
grow here that I am especial-
ly partial to for fall color.
One is the magnificent
Golden Rain Tree, and the
other is the equally magnifi-
cent, Cassia.
If you are thinking about


adding plants for fall color, I
would consider both of these.
The Golden Rain Tree is a
large tree and needs a lot of
space to spread its graceful
arms, while the Cassia tends
to be more like a large shrub,
similar in height to the white
Natchez Crape Myrtle.
The Golden Rain Tree is
loved by many, like me, and
also hated by some.
I'll tell you the few nega-

tives first, then I could go on
forever about its positive
attributes. For negatives, it
seems that some folks despise
it because it tends to be inva-
Personally, I have never
had a problem pulling up or
snipping off any new shoots
that appear in the spring.
Yes, if you leave them alone,
you'll have a forest of thick
Golden Rain trees, but it is so
easy to just pull out any
sprouts that I say, "What's
the big deal?" This tree is no
worse than the Maple or the
Oaks that do the same type
of thing.
Folks also say it is a "messy
tree." As the seedpods drop,
yes, they could be a problem
in staining the driveway or
sidewalk if the tree was plant-
ed close to one of those
But, again, if the tree is

Matheson: Golden Rain Trees

Cont. from B-I
non-screened pool, the drop-
ping of seeds and foliage is
never a problem. In the 15
years that I have had mine, I
have never gone out and
raked underneath it.
The negatives are all in the
eyes of the beholder, was
introduced to this tree 'many
years ago when living in
Mandarin. A reader called me
and told me to come and look
at her Golden Rain trees, and
never having heard of them, I
jumped into the car and off I
Pulling into her subdivision
I could see brilliant yellow
above the houses and won-
dered if that was from this
tree I'd never heard of.
Turning down her street I
was so shocked with the beau-
ty of not one, but two enor-
mous, fully-laden yellow-flow-
ering trees that I thought,
"look what I've missed." I can-
not tell you how intense in
color the large plumes were,
after which they slowly turn
to another color, a deep pink-
ish one as the seedpods actu-
ally take their shape.
Eventually the pods turn a
pretty brown, and then they
fall to the ground. This beauti-
ful transition takes place over
a period of at least a month,
usually 6-8 weeks, and each
transition is unique and quite
This person's trees were as
large as mature Live Oaks, and
they had been trimmed to
mimic the shape of the
spreading Live Oak. They were
only about 15 years old, while
a Live Oak grows slowly by
comparison, and would proba-
bly be 50 years or older by the

time they reached the shape
the Golden Rain trees were.
Each year I go back to the
subdivision and hold my
breath. Neighbors see me tak-
ing pictures and now a few of
the neighbors have their own
Goldens growing; soon the
subdivision will be absolutely
elegant' with the various tones
of this tree.
The Golden Rain Tree is a
deciduous one, eventually los-
ing all its leaves in the late
fall. It loves the sun, and it
does sprawl, so you'd need a
fairly large space to plant one
into. A seedling is all I started
with, and I gave it no special
Frankly, I think that's why
so many people love it; it
requires very little from you. I
haven't fertilized it in years, I
do not prune mine because it
is mixed in with some other
Florida-looking plants, and I
just want it to "do its own
thing." I do not know if it is
salt tolerant; I do not think it
would do well with a direct
ocean breeze/nor'easter
onslaught with heavy salt
spray, but, if any of you have
the Golden Rain tree at the
beach, please let me know,
If you need any more posi-
tives about this tree, it would
make a great spot for a kids'
tree house or reading nook, it
has no disease, nor real insect
problems. There is an insect
called a Jadera bug, which
appears in the spring, but it is
specific to the Golden Rain
and does no damage, i.e., is
something that is very tolera-
ble unless you squish them in
your hands and then you'll -
have a red stain for awhile.
The trees are not expensive,

they take hold easily, they can
withstand drought once estab-
lished, and they can stand a
lot of rain, if established. If
nothing else, keep your eyes
open for them. Once you see
one in its yellow or pinkish
state, you'll fall in love with
Another tree or large shrub
which I do not have but is
one my list of things to buy, is
another yellow blooming one
that starts its flowering a little
earlier than the Golden Rain
and also lasts a little longer. It
is the Cassia. The Cassia
belongs to the pea family, and
its foliage is deep glossy green.
The flowers are also in clumps
but not as large in mass as
with the Golden Rain. If you
have need of some Fall color
and do not have the space for
the spreading Golden Rain,
the Cassia is one I'd recom-
mend. Going on to the web-
site: www. florida
gardener.com, you will see a
lovely photo and fact sheet. I
believe this sheet is for South
Florida, but the plant is able
to do well here in North Fl. as
well. It is more of a fall
bloomer than a Winter one in
zone 9, which is us, and it is
very reasonably priced. Its
needs are few, except that it
loves the full sun. It is a small
tree or large shrub, so don't
place it underneath a canopy
of other trees or you will lose
the flower color. As with the
Golden Rain tree, the Cassia is
not salt tolerant if it is getting
direct salt spray or very strong
winds; however, it can live in
areas of Jacksonville Beach if
protected from the ocean. If
you love butterflies, this is a
great plant to have.

New spin

cont. from B-1
seated at large table with two
other strangers where we
watched the mystery unfold.
A murder took place at a
faux radio station and four
suspects (ranging from a.
cross-dresser to a ditz from
L.A.) all had strong motives
and could have done it.
Our job was to figure out
the who and the why by
asking the where, when,
what and how.
Each table was allowed one
question to ask the suspects,
who remained true to char-
acter and performed some of
the best improvisation I've
ever seen.
Considering that there are
only some questions that the
actors can really anticipate,
their answers have to come
from quick thinking and wit.
When asked why she wore
sock puppets on her hands
(there are still some ques-
tions that were left unan-
swered), for example, the
man who played "Dolly"
promptly threw them on the
ground, stared at them and
said, "Well, it wouldn't really
be entertaining otherwise.
They just lay there, don't
Dolly was also mauled by
lions, we learned as the plot
continued to unveil. (I have
to give the writers props for
their off-kilter randomness.)
In between bites of choco-
late cake, everyone at the
table worked individually
putting the clues together to
guess whodunit. (Words of
caution: don't try to write,
think and eat at the same
time or you, too, could end
up with chocolate sauce all
. over your dress.)
I wish I could boast that I
solved the mystery, but that
wasn't the case.
In the end, we learned that
another DJ at the station
(who used words such as
"stoked," "dude" and "awe-
some" intermittently and
wore a Ramones t-shirt)
turned out to be the killer.
Although some parts were
over-the-top and slightly
juvenile, the overall event
was fun.
It definitely put a new spin
. on a family dinner.

$3,256, she said.
"This will be
our fifth year as a

we've continued
to do better each
year, so we're
hoping the trend
will continue,"
she said.

'Nightmare Before Christmas' reissued

Theatrical reissues of old
favorites are a rarity in
the DVD era. Kudos to
Disney for bringing back one
of its best modern-day
movies in 3D, no less.
"Tim Burton's The
Nightmare Before Christmas"
(1993) is a fantasy first
hatched by Burton in his pre-
fame days as a lowly Disney
The story is brought to life
via stop-motion animation,
where 'constructed models
are subtly changed frame-by-
frame, so that they appear to
move on their own.
(Burton's story was directed-
by Henry Selick, who went
on to do the equally delight-
ful stop-motion version of
Roald Dahl's "James and the
Giant Peach.")
"Nightmare" goes out of its
way to create an otherworld-
ly universe. The movie's pro-
logue, which sucks me in
every time, is a paean to a

place called Halloweentown,
which we are told is where
the ghosts and goblins of
Halloween originate.
Halloweentown is run by
"pumpkin king" Jack
Skellington, who longs for
something different. One
day, he stumbles upon
Christmastown and is
enchanted by its bright,
happy treasures. Sadly for
Santa (and everyone else),
Jack decides to officiate over

Christmas as well.
The movie's riches just
never end. Its shimmering
score and songs are by long-
time Burton associate Danny
Elfman (who also provides
Jack's singing voice). The
voice-over actors are delight-
ful, particularly Catherine
O'Hara as Jack's erstwhile
girfirend Sally,,.,
Most of all, "Night ,are",-
like most of Burton's best
work is a treat for the,eyes.
It goes from the macabre ele-
gance of Halloweentown, to
the bright cheeriness of
Christmastown, to the death-
ly abode of The Oogie Boogie
Man, where a kidnapped
Santa Claus is sent to meet
his possible demise.
It's probably Oogie Boogie's
section of the movie that
parents might find most
troublesome. The movie,
while rated PG, makes it
quite clear that the Man
means to take care of Santa

once and for all. (When I saw
the movie on its first release,
one young viewer saw Santa
in peril and spent the rest of
the movie crying in fright.)
But, as befits the movie's
atmosphere of benign terror,
the saving grace is that Santa
himself is not frightened.
Instead he's just mildly
annoyed peeved that.this.

As for 3D, I'm happy to say
that the process has come a
long way from cheapo card-
board glasses. The characters
and settings really jump off
the screen, but the movie's
lovely cinematography
remains intact. The 3D effect
only adds to "Nightmare's"
giddy loopintss.
"Tim Burton's The

is rated PG for many scenes

Create a Spook-tacular Haunted House!

It's trick-or-treat time again,
so why not get in the spirit
of this spooky season with
your very own haunted
house? With a little decora-
tion, imagination and do-it-
yourself know-how, you can
be the talk of the neighbor-
hood. If you've got kids, most
of the suggestions below are
super-easy projects you can
take on together.
Creepy Cemetery
Your haunted house can
begin by transforming your
yard into a makeshift grave-
yard. Build your own tomb-
stones by shaping plywood
with a jigsaw. Even if you
don't consider yourself skilled
with a saw, don't worry.
Varying sizes and shapes only
adds to the spookiness. Sand
down the wood pieces and
then paint them with dark
paint. Using white or grey
paint or chalk, add names to
the "headstones."
Use the leftover scraps of
wood to shape stakes with the
jigsaw. Then nail the stakes to
the graves and stick them into
the ground. It's okay to let the
graves lean a little it makes
for an older-looking cemetery.
Bloodcurdling "Bodies"
Add "inhabitants" to your
cemetery. Using a few pieces
of wood, hammer together a
rudimentary stick figure. You
can build your "body" so that
it is standing up, keeping

'Be Jane'

watch on the graves, or sit-
ting, and later prop it against
a tombstone. Cover the figure
with clothes and stuff with
hay, dried leaves or foam bat-
ting. Staple a scary mask to it
and maybe even splash on
some fake blood. Now you
have the undead living in
your yard.
If a whole body seems like
too much work, cut a sleeve
off an old flannel shirt and
attach an old glove to it. Stuff
the "arm" with leaves or old
rags and attach it to one of
your graves, as though it's
reaching up from the ground.
You can buy all sorts of fake
limbs at a costume store and
scatter them over your lawn.
Other props for your bone

yard can include plywood
coffins. There are many pat-
terns online from which to
draw inspiration. Or you can
make a less-sturdy version
with cardboard. Visit your
local home improvement
store and ask a salesperson if
you can have an unused
refrigerator box. Cut a pattern
out using an exact-o knife and
hot glue the coffin together.
Paint the coffin with black
spray paint. Cover the coffin
in fake cobwebs and put one
of your "creepy creatures"
inside of it.
Ghosts and Goblins
Since many trick-or-treaters
will be ringing your bell on
Oct. 31, your porch is a good
place to add some frightening
detail. Invest in fake cob webs,
plastic spiders, and other crit-
ters to adorn your porch.
Make hanging ghosts by using
a soccer ball sized Styrofoam
ball, an old white sheet or
gauze, and fishing line. To
build your own ghoulish
ghosts, first, bore a hole
through the Styrofoam ball
using a drill. Tie a fishing line
to a hanger (to use as its
"shoulders"), and pass the line
through the bottom of the
ball with a needle. Place a
white sheet over the ball and
feed the needle and fishing
line through it, tying it in a
knot and leaving some extra
line, so that you can hang the

ghost. Cut the bottom of the
sheet in a jagged pattern so
that it looks tattered. Hang
your ghosts from your porch
or trees and let them sway in
the wind.
Mini ghosts can be created
by using lollipops and muslin
(or tissue). Simply cover the
candy with the muslin and
secure it with fishing line. To
hang your ghosts pass fishing
line through the "head" of
your ghost using a needle and
tie the two ends with a loop.
Fray the bottom of the muslin
and.hang your mini ghosts
inside or outside. Feel free to
draw scary faces on your
ghosts to give them petrifying
Perfect Pumpkins
It just wouldn't be
Halloween without pumpkin
carving. Instead of giving your
pumpkins those run-of-the-
mill triangle jack-o'-lantern
faces, get creative. Pick up a
variety of pumpkins and
gourds to make your haunted
house a reality. A pattern book
with outlines of different
scenes can be purchased quite
inexpensively at the grocery
store and will make you look
like a pro. (You can also
download patterns for free
online). Make copies of the
patterns so that you can use
them year after year. A pump-
kin carving kit will make the
detail work much easier,

though you can also use uten-
sils lying around the house.
Ice cream scoopers are great
for removing pumpkin
innards, cookie cutters make
great patterns and an ice pick
can double as a poker.
Painting faces on your
pumpkins is a good time-sav-
ing option, though you won't
get those glowing faces once
dusk descends. Remedy this
by using outdoor lighting in
different colors to highlight
your creepy decor. Candles
and decorative hanging lights
are also good for setting the
mood, but don't go overboard.
Limited lighting keeps things
Light It Up!
Here are a few great and
inexpensive ways to light up
your Halloween decor:
Strobe Lights Strobes
always have an eerie affect
especially when combined
with a creepy soundtrack.
Black Lights For just a few
dollars you can purchase a
black fluorescent light kit that
will accentuate any light col-
ored objects giving them a
haunting glow. If you don't
want to worry about installing
or purchasing a whole new
light fixture, consider tem-
porarily changing out your
existing white fluorescent
bulbs with black ones.
Colored lights You can add
"color gels" to any white light

to give your existing lights a
whole new look. These are
specifically made to handle
high heat without melting.
You can usually find them at
camera supply shops.
Daunting Details
If you are throwing a
Halloween party, make cos-
tumes mandatory. Add
ambiance with scary music,
such as a CD of horror movie
themes and consider spooky
sound effects in a few rooms
of your home. There are a
number of outdoor speakers
available so you can bring
those sound effects to your
front yard as well. For refresh-
ments, pumpkins carved in
half, gutted and lined with
plastic can serve as "chilling"
mini-coolers, or fill them with
dry ice instead to create a
haunting fog and cook up
some scary recipes to serve to
your ghoulish guests.
By spooking up your front
yard and the inside of your
home, you can make a truly
memorable Halloween for you
and your guests. You'll be sur-
prised by how wonderfully
responsive your friends and
family will be. After all, you're
getting into the holiday spirit!
(Get it, spirit?) But, hey;
Halloween isn't just for kids
anymore, so have fun.

New line of Christine Andrew wines is a treat

We recently had the
opportunity to meet
with Stephen Kautz,
president of Ironstone
Vineyards of Murphy's,
California. Located at 2,400
feet in the Sierra Foothills wine
region in Calaveras County,
this is historic Gold Rush terri-
tory where the days are warm
but the nearby mountains pro-
vide cooling breezes at night.
The winery is really an all-
encompassing entertainment
complex with a 6,500-seat
amphitheater that hosts popu-
lar summertime concerts such
as Bryan Adams, Lynyrd
Skynyrd and Vince Gill. You
will also find landscaped gar-
dens, a heritage museum that
houses the world's largest sin-
gle example of crystalline gold,
a 44-pound specimen that was
discovered a few miles from

'The Wine Guys'

the winery. The Kautz family
operates all of the facilities and
provides all of the food and
beverage needs for the facilities
as well including the 50 or so
weddings that they host per

We had met Stephen about
six years ago and remember
fondly the Ironstone
Obsession white wine ($10).
'Made from the symphony
grape a cross between
grenache gris and muscat of
Alexandria. This off-dry wine
is an incredible value and is
pretty much guaranteed to
please everyone. It has peach
and tropical fruit flavors with
some spiciness that reminds
you a bit of gewiirztraminer.
The purpose of our meeting
was to taste the new line of
Christine Andrew wines that
have just been released. The
name comes from two of the
members of the fourth genera-
tion of the Kautz family, which
is currently one of the top 10
wine-growing families in the
United States. Stephen was
"proud they are varietally cor-

rect" and believes that practic-
ing "sustainable viticulture
winegrowing" are paying off
with better quality wine
Our favorites of the
Christine Andrew wines were
the Petite Sirah Lodi 2004
($16), which exhibited a baked
fruit pie nose, and hints of
herbs and leather with nice
plumy fruit. We also enjoyed
the Malbec Lodi 2004 ($16)
which is not commonly grown
in California. Very ripe blue-
berry and cherry fruit with a
hint of earth create a very easy
to drink harmonious wine.
Our favorite was the
Tempranillo Lodi 2005 ($16).
We loved the complexity of
this wine made from a grape,
which is more commonly
found in Spain. Medium bod-
ied, with wild cherry and plum

tion or to register, contact

fruit flavors that finish with
nice creamy vanillin oak. This
is a highly recommended wine
and worth seeking out.
We also enjoyed the
Ironstone Vineyards Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon Sierra
Foothills 2003 ($24). Classy
cassis, cherry nose. Big in style,
but still in balance, with lots of
layers of flavors and complexi-
ty. Ready to drink now.
In addition, we liked the
Ironstone Vineyards Reserve
Meritage Calaveras County
2004 ($35). This is a much big-
ger wine than the others we

tasted with bigger tannins,
that will take time to resolve,
and good palate-cleansing
acidity. Hints of olive in the
nose with a black cherry nose
and flavors in the mouth, and
layers of flavors and complexi-
ty make this a wine that you
could drink now with a well-
marbled steak or hold for 3-5
Gallo Family Vineyards
Sonoma Reserve Pinot Gris
2006 ($12). Lush, exotic fruit
redolent of pears highlight this
well-made wine from Gallo.

Halloween can be a traumatic and even a
dangerous time for your pet Ms. Jacque
Schultz, ASPCA Director of Companion
Animal Services suggests. Some common-
sense tips to protect your pet on Halloween
will ensure you and your pet enjoy a safe and
bewitching Halloween.
Don't leave your pet out in the yard on
Halloween: There are plenty of stories of
vicious pranksters who have teased, injured,
stolen, even killed pets on this night.
Trick-or-treat candies are' not for pets:
Chocolate is poisonous to a lot of animals, and
tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers can be
hazardous if swallowed.
Be careful of pets around a lit pumpkin:
Pets may knock it over and cause a fire.
Curious kittens especially run the risk of get-
ting burned.
Don't dress the dog in costume unless you
know he loves it. Otherwise, it puts a lot of
stress on the animal.

If you do dress up your dog, make sure the
costume isn't constricting, annoying or
unsafe. Be careful not to obstruct her vision
Even the sweetest dogs can get snappy
when they can't see what's going on around
All but the most social dogs should be kept
in a separate room during trick-or-treat visit-
ing hours; too many strangers in strange garb
can be scary for a dog.
* Be careful your cat or dog doesn't dart out
through the open door.
While this can be a fun time for people and
pets alike, remember that your pets are
depending on you to keep them safe from the
more dangerous goblins and ghouls that this
holiday brings.
Further questions about animal safety and
behavior, can be directed to the Animal
Behavior Helpline, 212-876-7700, ext. 4357
(HELP), Monday through Friday 1-5 p.m.

Weekend 8 The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


Fall cleaning makes home holiday-ready

T his is a time of year
when I move into high
gear at my house, and
it's what I talked about during
a recent public speaking pres-
The fall is when I try to get
clutter taken care of before all
the decorations and presents
and holiday preparations
come into the house. It's a
great time to get your home
ready to close up and make it
sparkling for the season of
lights. Doing this work before
the holidays ensures you have
a clean, organized holiday sea-
son instead of a "Chris-mess."
Make changes

Because you spend more
time indoors during the fall
and winter months, I like to
make decorating changes now
that take me through the
colder months. This is the
time to get your dining room
painted that deep cranberry
color or revamp the powder
bathroom. Freshening up the
decor makes the holidays
seem brighter. Don't wait
until the turkey's in the oven
before you try to wallpaper or
recover the sofa. Get any
major maintenance or deco-
rating projects tackled now.
And because the front door is
used more at this time of year
than any other, give the out-
side a fresh coat of paint or
lacquer to freshen up its
Clear out

This is also the perfect time
for clearing out old toys, out-
worn clothing and other clut-
ter. Pitch as much junk as you
can. I'm getting ready for my
annual garage sale and can't
wait to unload all the stuff I

'k f I


no longer need and want but
that someone else will.
Whatever isn't sold goes
into the trash or will be
donated if it's still usable. Go
through closets, drawers and
cabinets. One of the things
that hangs around past its life
expectancy is broken and mis-
matched dishes and silver-
If you have mismatched sil-
verware, relegate the old stuff
for camping and buy a new
set. If.chipped dinnerware is a
problem, throw it out and
start over with a new set. The
Chinese believe it's bad luck
to eat off chipped dinnerware.
That's as good a reason as any
to get new plates if yours are
chipped. The same goes for
glassware. If yours are mis-
matched, pitch them and get
a new set. You'll really enjoy
the new dishes as the holidays
Clean up

This is also a good time to
do some cleaning around the
house. Focus on light fixtures,
paint touch-ups and getting
cobwebs down from the ceil-

ing. If your walkways are
stained from rain or mold,
give them a quick wash with
some soap and bleach. Clean
the oven on the cleaning
cycle on a chilly evening.
Have the carpets cleaned and
take your bedspreads or com-
forters to the cleaners.
If you need a way to keep
track of everything, I have a
free annual cleaning schedule
that you can download. Go to
http://tinyurl.com/2ptwwp to
get your free schedule. Be sure
to post it where you can see it.
Getting excited about the hol-
idays, for me, anyway, is
about getting my house ready.
I want to enjoy all the baking,
wrapping and shopping that
comes with the season, and if
I delay the chores around the
house until the day before
company comes over, I'm
stressed and I don't enjoy the
season at all.
Take a little time now to get
your house ready for the holi-
days. It's time well spent and
you'll enjoy knowing that the
house is ready for celebrations
- a time you want to enjoy
yourself not be saddled with
even more work and cleaning.
And afterwards, you'll go into
the New Year with a clean,
maintained house and not
with last year's clutter and
Next week, I'll share some
of the projects I've been work-
ing on at my house.

A butler's pantry is a wonderful help for the holidays. Clean yours out and get it ready for the fall
by stocking it with new or cleaned dishes and polished silver before it's time to carve the turkey.
Some advance preparation makes holiday meal preparation easier and the celebrations more

REMOVAL.-- Apply a few
drops -of glyercine and rub it
.in with your fingers. Rinse
the stain with water and laun-
der as usual. The stain comes
right out. Lottie D.
EASY CLEAN Clean your
blender by filling it halfway
with water' and adding a few


drops of dishwasher deter-
gent. Turn the blender on and
'let it clean itself. Harriet M.

Before kneeding bread, shap-
ing cookies or flattening Rice
Krispie treats, spray your
hands with cooking oil. For
the Rice Krispie treats, use
butter-flavored spray.
Jeannette T.

WINTER TIP Disconnect
and drain outdoor hoses and
faucets. Disconnecting the
hose allows water to drain
from the pipe and prevent
freezing. A single overnight
freeze can burst either the
faucet or the pipes it is con-
nected to, which can be very
costly to repair. Barry B.
BABY WIPES Use 'baby.
wipes on car dashboards, they

clean like new and leave an
anti-static layer. Francine J.
* '
WEED KILLER Instead of
buying expensive products to
get rid of weeds and grass
coming up in between patio

blocks, carefully spread salt
between the bricks and
blocks, then sprinkle with
wa fr or wait fo, rai n t g et it
down. Lisa C.
