Approaching the Short
home on Ranch Road in Palm
Valley, a visitor is reminded of
the days before trees were cut
down for a four-lane highway
nearby, when County Road
210 was the only east-west
artery linking Ponte Vedra
Beach to points west.
Here on Ranch Road, a
stone's throw from the Palm
Valley"Golf Course, things are
still quiet, spacious,
It's like a walk back in time,
a fitting setting for an ancient
craft that is kept alive by a
patch of persons who meet at
this home once a month.

They are a group of "gour-
ders," part of a state and
national society whose mem-
bers enjoy and want to keep
alive gourding as a hobby.
Members of the Northeast
Florida Gourd Patch are tak-
ing part in the annual Florida
Gourd Society Show Feb. 22.

The Shorts got into gourd-
ing 10 years ago when Laraine
and Tom, who's from Georgia,
visited Wrens, Ga., a big gour-
ding area.
"We picked up some martin
gourds to make birdhouses.
Martins eat mosquitoes, so
they're popular. We brought
them home, cleaned them on
the driveway, got seeds all
over, just swept them off,"
said Laraine Short.
."Next thing I knew, I had
vines growing all over my
flowerbeds, had all these
gourds, didn't know what to
do with them."

Property owners,

govermnents await

fallout of Amend. 1

Owners of homesteaded
properties in St. Johns County
can expect to hear next week
from the county's Property
Appraiser's office because of
the tax-reform amendment
voters approved last week.
Notices are being sent to
those property owners to
explain that they must apply
by March 1 if they wish to
transfer their homestead bene-
fit to another property,
Property Appraiser Sharon
Outland said this week.
They don't have to take any
action, however, to get the
added $25,000 exemption for
homesteaded properties worth.
more than $50,000. That will
automatically be added, she
"The double homestead

exemption will be automatic,"
Outland said during a tele-
phone interview Tuesday.
The extra exemption applies
to all taxes except school taxes.
The savings to the owner of a
home in the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service assessed at
$300,000 would be about $184,
if millages remain the same.
Also part of the amendment
is a 10 percent per year cap on
assessment increases for non-
homesteaded properties.
That won't take effect until
2009, so. those who qualify
don't have to apply for that
benefit until next year,
Outland said.
County businesses must file
a tangible personal property
return with Outland's office by
April 1 in order to receive the

Commissioner: Does 210 need 4 lanes?

The contentious issue of
widening County Road 210
east of the Palm Valley bridge
continued to fester this week,
when Ponte Vedra Municipal

Service District (MSD) trustees
defended their interest in the
"We have the right, indeed
the duty" to weigh in on the
issue, trustee Al Hollon said at
Monday's MSD meeting.
"It does impact the citizens

who live in the MSD," said
trustee Rob Becker.
Both were responding to
news reports in which Mary
Kohnke of Palm Valley criti-
cized MSD trustees and board
members of the Ponte Vedra
Community Association for

"sticking their nose in", the
issue of widening a section of
210 that is miles from the
boundary of the MSD.
The widening of 210 from
the bridge east to the Mickler
roundabout remains in limbo,
as the Guana preserve to the

south is unwilling to give up
land for the project, and
Sawmill Lakes residents to the
north object to the road com-
ing close to their, homes.

Christ Episcopal provides labyrinth for Lent


John Sievers receives ashes
at an Ash Wednesday
Service at Lord of Life
Lutheran Church, marking
the start of Lent. For
more religion news, see
page C-6.

Today and for the next five Fridays
in Lent, Christ Episcopal Church will
have a labyrinth set up in the court-
yard from 5 to 7 p.m. People are
invited to walk the labyrinth as part
of the their Lenten devotions.
"Labyrinths have been used by
every faith since pe-Christian times,"
said Malinda Harris, Director of
Christian Formation at Christ
Episcopal Church.
"Walking a labyrinth is a way of
centering for prayer."
One of the first ways the early
Christians used labyrinths was for
people who were not able to go on a
pilgrimage to Jerusalem, said Harris.
People today do not often make
pilgrimages to Jerusalem. A labyrinth
offers a way to step outside the mod-
ern world and become centered.
"When you get on a labyrinth, it is
a metaphor for life," said Harris
While a person may think they are
going in one direction, life often
takes them in another direction, as a
labyrinth does. Also, if there are oth-
ers on the labyrinth at the same tim,
it may be necessary to step aside to

Then in the center of the
labyrinth, it is possible to be "open

As the person walks out of the
labyrinth, they may feel better pre-
pared for prayer or may have a new
perspective, she said.

Episcopal is painted on canvas. It is

Although today's gourders
mostly create bird houses or
decorative pieces, gourds have
been used for musical instru-
ments, hats, scoops or con-
tainers for foods and liquids
and other practical items.
"They would use gourds to
store grain and corn," patch
member Kim Belvin of
Jacksonville explained at the
patch's Jan. 26 meeting.
"They would use dipper
gourds to dip grain or water
from out of the lakes," said,
Belvin, whose husband David
is a Native American.
"If they had gourds that had
seeds loose in them, they
would make nice rattles for
ceremonial dances," she said.

Pittsburgh, who has started

learn how to do it.'"
Straus found the local gour-
ders on the Internet
(www.flgourdsoc.org) and was
welcomed aboard.

by the amendment.
Meanwhile, local govern-
mental entities are looking.for
ways to make up the loss in
revenues expected because of
the amendment.
*St. Johns County
Commissioner Cyndi
Stevenson told a Ponte Vedra
Beach gathering this week that.
the amendment's provisions,
plus property tax reform the
Florida Legislature approved
last year, will cost the county
about $30 million a year,
"Which is about one-sixth" of
the budget.
"The Board [of County
Commissioners] started [cut-
ting expenses] a couple years
ago" in anticipation of "the
economic downturn,
Stevenson said at Monday's
meeting of the Ponte Vedra

Municipal Service District.
She said the board will use
"better management tech-
niques" to help handle the rev-
enue loss.
Commission chair Tom
Manuel of Ponte Vedra Beach
noted the elimination of 47
county staff positions last year
and said this year will likely see
an even larger reduction in
. "We currently have a board
that's committed to fiscal con-
servatism," he said.
The School Board also will
try to trim its budget this year,
even though the loss of rev-
enue to the School District will
not be as drastic as the loss to
other governmental entities.
The extra $25,000 home-
stead exemption and the 10
percent cap on assessments for

non-homesteaded properties
don't .apply to School District
taxes (see box, A-1).
"We are anticipating losses
in revenue," School Board
member Bill Fehling of Ponte
Vedra Beach said Monday in a
telephone interview.
Fehling said he is wary of
promises from the state to
replace funds lost due to the
property tax amendment.
"[Gov. Crist] said he will
hold schools harmless for
whatever revenues we missed
from the property tax amend-'
ment. But we're cautious
because he hasn't identified
the source of those revenues,"
Fehling said.
"We're starting to identify
possible areas [to cut], but as of
right now I don't know what
those areas are," he added.

Blowing yard trash could get fine

Blowing garden trash, such
as leaves and debris, into the
city right of way in Neptune
Beach will cost residents and
businesses $50 if a proposed
ordinance is passed.
The proposed ordinance
says that all garden trash,
including "trees and tree
limbs, sand and dirt shall not
be blown, swept, washed or
placed onto public or private
roadways or alleys or onto
adjacent properties."
If anyone in the communi-
ty is caught doing so, the city
has the right to levy a $50
fine, as proposed.
"It's going to be an adjust-
ment because people are not
used to it," said Councilor
John Weldon.
The proposed ordinance is
intended to keep nitrogen out
*of the stormwater system.

It will also help prevent
flooding, City Manager Jim

JB to reuse more treated

waste water in public space

Jacksonville Beach officials are taking steps to
extend the city's water reuse plan to use treated
effluent to irrigate more public facilities and
limit the nitrogen levels in the St. Johns River.
The City Council Monday authorized a
$49,495 engineering study to develop a master
plan detailing ways to increase the reuse of
treated water.
Plans will also address the guidelines estab-
lished by the Environmental Protection Agency
to reduce the amount of nitrogen in the Lower
St. Johns River basin.
Jones Edmonds & Associates will establish a
plan that will enable the city to maximize the
potential for treated effluent and reduce the lev-
els of nitrogen and wastewater contaminants
released into the river.
State environmental officials issue Wastewater
and Storm water National Pollution Discharge
Elimination System (NODES) permits to enforce
the nitrogen allocations.
Jacksonville Beach has both permits and plans
to incorporate nitrogen limits within the next
According to city officials, the plan will iden-
tify potential sites within the city that could uti-
lize treated waste water for irrigation and ensure
that the proper pipe size is installed in the spe-
cific areas.

"It is the city's intention to utilize the infor-
mation contained in this reuse master plan by
incorporating the reuse piping as ancillary work
in various city infrastructure improvement proj-
ects constructed in the future," Public Works
Director Ti Edward's said in his staff recommen-
A new wastewater treatment plant will also be
constructed to advanced treatment standards to
help reduce nitrogen and. allow treated effluent
to be used for irrigation without the need for
additional treatment.
Preliminary cost for the new treatment facili-
ty is estimated at $.20 million.
"When we do spend the money to upgrade
the water treatment facility we won't have to
treat it the way we do now," City Manager
George Forces said. "That really expands the
scope of how we use it."
Currently, effluent treated at the wastewater
treatment plant is pumped to the city's four-acre
pond at the municipal golf course and used to
irrigate the 18-hole course, Wingate Park, police
station and the Operations and Maintenance
facility. '
A conduit will also be installed in the new
landscaped median on Beach Boulevard to pro-
vide irrigation for the Lee Kirkland and H.
Warren Smith cemeteries.

Avoid new tax

by con artists

Scam artists are quick to spot an opportunity.
Florida Consumer Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is warning consumers this week about
scam artists who are seeking personal information
while claiming to help consumers obtain a tax
rebate from the federal government.
Problem is Congress has not even approved such a
"If you receive a phone call or e-mail with a prom-
ise of assistance in getting a check, hang up on the
caller or delete the e-mail," Bronson said.
Some Florida residents have acknowledged in
phone calls to the Consumer Services Division this
week that they have been contacted by would-be con
In one variation of the rip-off, a company calling
itself the Federal Commission Refund Department is
promising consumers help in obtaining a tax rebate
check for a $29 fee that it offers to withdraw from the
consumer's bank account. In a second variation,
scammers portraying themselves as IRS agents are
calling and asking for Social Security numbers and
other personal information to verify the person's eli-
gibility for a refund. That information can make
consumers vulnerable to identity theft. Do not let
the scammers obtain personal information, includ-
ing bank account and Social Security numbers.
While Congress is considering a tax rebate plan to
stimulate the economy, the con artists are already
taking to the phones to take advantage of eager con-

The vote was 4-1, both the Mayor and the
Vice Mayor voted in favor of art. Only John
Weldon voted nah as he publicly accused us of
using a technicality to win. Even after all the
discussions, Mr. Weldon stands steadfast in his
belief that "it is a sign". He referred to it as
having no other purpose except to advertise
Day or Night Moves, Inc. (a commercial and
residential moving company). Based on his
argument, it seems fair to say that. he dis-
agrees with the hundreds of locals, many of
which are tax paying citizens of Neptune
Beach, who signed our petition voting that it
is ART!
Regardless of Mr.. Weldon's vote, my reply
remains the same...any type of business
including a sub shop, chiropractor, even
Neptune Beach City Hall could occupy our
building and there would be no reason for
anyone to wonder why there ws h mural

S"It's sad, but. it's their time

said Denise Bates, who gave
birth to the triplets on May
24, 1989, in Dallas.
Added the triplets' father,
Bill Bates, a former Dallas
Cowboy: "There lives will be
ever connected to Nease."

Two years later, Bill Bates
and another former NFL play-
er, Craig James, were asked to
start a football team at Pres-

cheerleading program.
"One of the greatest things
that has ever happened to me
was that I was able to coach
the boys there in Dallas," said
Bill, who retired from the NFL
as an active player in 1997
with three Super Bowl rings.
"Graham was more devel-

him to play quarterback and

to trade their cowboy boots

Denise saw the move as a
Godsend for her boys in an

"The first phone call we got
was from Wesley Haynes [of
the Ponte Vedra Athletic
Association]," Denise said.
"Dean [Bernie] Blue gave him
our number."
Graham and Hunter played
Pop Warner football for
Haynes as eighth graders, join-
ing 11 other future Nease foot-
ball players on the same team.
Haynes is credited with
moving Hunter from corner to
safety, Bill Bates said. Hunter
displayed his first flash of bril-

to play emergency quarterback
in the semifinals of a national
championship game in Miami.

two-way player. The Ponte

Bates left NFL coaching the
following year and became the
inaugural freshman football
team coach at Nease.
He had an opportunity to
coach special teams for the
Seattle Seahawks, but thought
twice about again uprooting
his family.
Coaching his boys on the
high school level and being
able to attend his daughter's
volleyball games was too good
to pass up.
"Being an NFL coach is so
time-consuming," the elder
Bates said. "Coach [Craig]
Howard said Nease has never,
had a freshman team and that
I could coach my kids all four
years. So I said, 'Sign me up.'"
The Nease freshmen went
undefeated their first year
under Bates, giving up only-a
few points.
Graham and Hunter were
moved up to varsity at the end
of their freshman season and
played on special teams in
Nease's state regional final
game with St. Augustine High.
The following year, Hunter
won a starting spot at free
safety and Graham was a

reserve running back.
By their junior year, both
boys- were starters for Nease
and major special teams con-
Graham was Nease's leading
receiver coming into the 2007
season, and a major go-to guy
But versatility is part of the
triplets' DNA.
When Nease needed some-
one to move over to defense
and play the critical left comer
slot last season, Graham was
asked to surrender potential
star status on offense.
The switch meant Graham
would face an opponent's top
receiver on a Friday night
basis. It also meant that any
mistakes covering that top
receiver would be magnified
on the field.
"The toughest part of coach-
ing your kids is that you want
to put them in the best posi-
tion to succeed," Bill Bates said.
"Moving to defense was not
easy for Graham, but he's
always been a team player.; He
had to-learn nianotoman con-,,
cepts and cover a lot of
ground, but he learned those
things and we didn't ,have to
worry about him."
Bates said the "culmination"
of his son's ascension to shut-
down corner came in last sea-
son's 17-15 victory over St.
Augustine, when Graham

broke up a 2-point conversion
in the end zone to preserve
the win.

Separate but equal
The first-born of the triplets,
Graham William Bates has
always taken the leader's role
as a birthright, his mother

whatever position at a person-
al sacrifice," said Denise Bates.

defensive backs, according to
their father.
"But it's hard to have two
open positions on the same
college team," Bill Bates said.
"They have always been
very competitive with each
other, but they've the best of
friends. Maybe it's time for
them to do their own thing."
Denise said she never
pinned her hopes on her sons
earning college scholarships in
football. She even had them
thinking along the lines of a
backup college plan if football
"wasn't part of the equation."
"I wanted schools to
embrace them for their indi-
vidual talents," she said.
With the triplets going their
separate ways next fall, Denise
said it's only natural to believe
that her children will experi-

Girls take aim at another state soccer title

Boys play Bishop Moore

tonight for regional crown


Two second-half goals by
forward Lisa Heise lifted the
Nease High girls soccer team
over Fort Myers Cypress Lake
Wednesday and into Thursday
night's Class 4A state chambi-
onship game at Lockhart
Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.
The 2-1 victory over Cypress
Lake gave the
Panthers a
chance for their
fourth state title
in the past
seven years. The
team won state
in 2002, 2005
and 2006.. .
Heise's header
off a comer kick
from Jessica:
Stephens in the
75th minute was the game-.
winner for Nease.
Earlier,,Heise brought her
team out a 1-0 halftime deficit
when she scored seven min-
utes into the second half.
It was an emotional game
for Cypress Lake, which
played one day after the
apparent suicide of reserve
junior midfielder Corine
Frutos. The body of Frutos, 16,
was found Tuesday on the
fourth floor roof of the
DiamondHead Beach Resort in
Fort Myers.
She had been reported miss-
ing by her mother about five
hours before she was found.
Despite the loss of a team-
mate, Cypress Lake players
and coaches opted to play
Wednesday night's game,
albeit with heavy hearts.
In the sixth minute of play,
Cypress Lake's Julie Samson
scored the first goal of the

game on an assist from Codi
Despite Nease controlling
the tempo and having the bet-
ter scoring opportunities, that
1-0 lead held up over the first
40 minutes.
The Panthers (19-2-6) seized
control early in the second
half, maintaining possession
and winning most of the 50-
50 balls until
Heise scored
the equalizer in
the seventh
minute on a
pass from
Ashley Nicol.
The two
gave Heise a
total of 19 on
the season and
the senior is
the team's leading scorer.
In the other Class 4A semifi-
nal, Merritt Island (19-4-3)
topped Gulf Breeze, 2-0, to
advance to Thursday's champi-
onship game.
Following last Friday's victo-
ry in the regional final, Nease
head coach Dave Silverberg
said being patient would be
the key to his team's success in
the final four.
"When teams try to frustrate
us by dropping back on
defense, we can't play into
that," he said. "We can't get
impatient because then it
leads to low-percentage scor-
ing chances.
"Our game has to be ball
control and making the extra
pass, or two passes, for high-
percentage shots."

Building boom slows, but nail gun injuries continue

Afew weeks ago, I was
called to the ER to eval-
uate a gentleman who
had been shot in the arm by a
nail gun. The nail had pene-
trated through the outer ,
aspect of his elbow, through
the muscle and into the bone,
which fractured about the
embedded nail.
The man was in pain, as you
would expect, but he was also
unable to move his arm due
to the bony penetration. He
was taken to surgery, where
the nail was removed, the -
path of penetration was surgi-
cally cleaned, and then he was
casted for his fracture.
These types of things hap-
pen all the time. I previously
noted an amazing story about
a guy who shot himself in the
head with a nail gun, some-
how didn't know he had done
it, and eventually went to his
dentist for what he thought


was an infected tooth. An X-
ray showed the nail embedded
into his skull, partially pene-
trating his brain.
He was taken to the hospital
where he underwent emer-
gency removal and has not
suffered any permanent dam-

Although the building

injuries continue to be com-

Nail guns are equipped with
safety devices that require the
gun be pressed firmly against
the surface to be nailed, there-
by preventing the possibility
that the gun be accidentally
fired, sending the nail soaring

remove this safety device in

of covering the area to be

First Coast Surfrider targets beach erosion

Beach erosion, land devel-
opment and educational
are among the
top issues the
First Coast
Foundation is
focusing on in
2008, said foun-
dation chairman
Rhea Drysdale
In recent
years, First Coast
Surfrider focused
many of its
efforts on water
quality and
beach access.
"Our water sU
testing program C u
is a success; the l
city is doing an
excellent job of
water testing so
we're looking at
shifting our efforts to more of,


a broad-based environmental
focus," Drysdale said.
"Beach erosion is a big con-
cern. We've gotten beach
access, now we need to make
sure there is a beach to go to."
First Coast
Surfrider won a
lawsuit against
St. Johns County
in 2006 that
required the
county to clear
and mark all
public beach
access points.
First Coast
Surfrider gained
national recogni-
tion in 2007
when a Florida
court ordered
removed from
beach access

Blvd. The victory
'was named the
No. 1 "win" in
the nation last
year by The Surfrider

Foundation, the non-profit
organization dedicated to pro-
tection and reservations of
the world's oceans.
"Ponte Vedra legislation led
the precedent for what
became statewide last year
and that was huge," Drysdale
said. "Now with more of an
environmental focus we are
also looking into events to
spread awareness."
First Coast Surfrider is pre-
senting an "Our Oceans

with the Marine Safety
Division of Jacksonville Fire
and Rescue Departments. The
first session scheduled for
March 18 from 7 p.m. to 8:30

Don't jump the gun before spring
after you get them. By the deeply, but rather a bit higher

T today I saw a large pot of
red geraniums, one of
my favorite flowers from
childhood, and I was tempted
to purchase the pot.
Seeing them really made me
think about all aspects of
spring that we will soon have
upon us, the greening of the
lawns, the seedlings going
into a vegetable plot, the beds
cleaned up and flowers plant-
ed for touches of color, the
smells of fresh weeds and the
chirping of birds as they find
places to build their nests*.
We need to be a little care-
ful and not jump the gun,
especially on using fertilizer
too early on our lawns.
As I have told you many
times, fertilizer brings new
growth, and new growth is
very susceptible to cold tem-
peratures. Pruning also stimu-
lates new growth, and direct-
ing the-job to dormant plants
is the key right now.
I am sure we,will have a few
more "get out the old sheets"
nights, so as you salivate over
buying colorful but tender
annuals and vegetables, just
remember that it is OK to buy
them, but probably best not
to plant them into the ground
for a few more weeks.
Find a spot where they can
be outdoors during the warm
days and then brought in for
the cool nights. Or plant
them into containers that can
be wheeled into the garage
when freeze warnings are
Let's review a gardener's
check list as we go into spring;
keep it handy and mark off
what you've completed as the
month moves along.
I've already talked with you
about tree care, but have not
reminded you of how to plant
a tree, and then care for it.

"This forced me to do that.
And there is a benefit. It's
not just a selfish effort."

Brightman: Tried and true formula


Cont. from B-1
Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom
of the Opera," Brightman has
carved out a musical niche
that finds her combining the
improbable elements of opera,
broadway tunes and pop/the-
atrical rock music.
Released last week,
"Symphony" is Brightman's
first studio release since 2003's
"Harem. While not as pop-ori-
ented as "Harem" or 1993's
"Dive," neither is
"Symphony" as devoted to
opera and Broadway as 2001's
The style and arrangements
of the majority of the songs
will sound immediately famil-
iar to fans, though there are- a
few nice touches here again.,
that slight leaning toward
something new.
Along with the aforemen-
tioned "Fleurs Du Mal," a
standout on "Symphony" is "I

Will Be With You (Where The
Lost Ones Go)," a strong
power ballad featuring KISS
vocalist Paul Stanley.
And while Brightman is, in
fact, sticking to her tried and
true formula, that formula
does serve her well.
"Storia D'Amore," for exam-
ple, would fit in on just about
any other album by
Brightman; that doesn't lessen
the fact that it's being sung to

perfection by one of the finest
voices in music today.
But even the best singers
can make the musical equiva-
lent of a pratfall, and
Brightman makes a doozy
with the album's closer,
"Running" a quirky mess
that sounds like a cross
between "Never-Ending Story"
and "TotaFEclipse of the
Heart" before self-destructing
into operatic oatmeal.
Brightman's voice definitely
makes "Symphony" worth lis-
tening too.
But you just might find
yourself wishing that she or
long-time producer Frank
Peterson had been willing to
deliver on the promise that
"Fleurs Du Mal" hints at.
It sure seems that there's a
great gothic/industrial album
in her somewhere, clamoring
to be released on an unsus-'
pecting world.

Valentine's mistakes can be

covered with a glass of wine

Here are many versions
of how Valentine's Day
got started, so we'won't
even try to track its history.
Whether Valentine is a patron
saint or a stockholder at
Hallmark doesn't make much
difference to the guy who bet-
ter have a plan on Feb. 14.
If you are like most male
cads, picking.up a cheesy
greeting card at the local car
wash is about as thoughtful as
the gift normally gets. What -
she wants flowers, too? And
Here's our spin, guys: Any
marriage worth saving is
worth more than a greeting
card, and, you never know
what tomorrow will bring. You
really need to show some love.
If your job makes it impossi-
ble to do anything special for
the day, every restaurant is
well prepared to help. Look at
the newspaper ads and you'll
find special deals that may
even include a red rose. This is
not the time to invite along
V friends your gift is to spend
the evening paying attention
to just her.
If you do have the time or
forgot to make that dinner
reservation even the most
klutzy chef can throw together
an intimate dinner at home.
Most women are forgiving of
your culinary mistakes, if not
privately amused. If grilling a
steak is even beyond your tal-
ents, grocery stories offer pre-
pared food that come with
baking instructions.
Of course, you will need
wine and that's where we
come in.
Any mistake can be easily
covered with another glass of
wine. After the second glass,
she will be oblivious to the
misplaced fork or the over-
cooked food.
We like to start the
Valentine's Day evening with
a glass of champagne. Look
for a rose sparkling wine from
Nicolas Feuillate, Veuve
Clicquot, Shramsberg, Iron
Horse or Argyle. You can easily
carry over this aperitif to the
table for dinner, but you
might think of buying a split

if it's intended only as a starter
Red wine would be in keep-
ing with the color that identi-
fies the holiday. Even the
pinkish color of salmon and
lobster two great seafood
choices for Valentine's Day -
can be perfectly accompanied
by red wine. Look for a seduc-
tive burgundy or a California
pinot noir if you aren't serving
sparkling wine.
If a juicy steak is your din-
ner choice, the red wine
choices are more abundant. If
you have a cellar, this is the
time to sacrifice a well-aged
bordeaux. If not, there are still
some great 2000 and 2003
bordeaux on the market and
plenty of great California mer-
itage wines (Rodney Strong
Symmetry, Chateau Ste.
Michelle Meritage, Estancia
Meritage, Beringer Alluvium)
that will cost you some money
but deliver impressive power.
Since Valentine's Day is also
associated with chocolate, you
might want to have a dessert
wine to top off the night.
Bonny Dobn makes an exqui-
site Framboise that is about as
perfect a match that you'll
find. Chocolate should be
paired with sweeter reds, like
zinfandel or even port.
Here are some other unique
O'Brien Estate of Napa
Valley markets a "romantic
wines portfolio" and the wines
in this category sport a black
label featuring a large sugges-
tive golden "0." Inside the

bottles we found two well-
made red wines each with flir-
tatious names. The O'Brien
"Romance of the Heart"
Napa Valley 2003 ($30) is a
proprietary blend of cabernet
sauvignon and merlot from
the prestigious Oak Knoll dis-
trict of the Napa Valley.
Cabernet sauvignon clearly
dominates in this wine with a
deep black cherry nose and
elegant smooth flavors, and a
nice fruity/vanillin finish.
Good now but should age well
for 3-5 years. Enjoy with red
meat dishes. The O'Brien
"Seduction" Napa Valley
2005 ($40) is a more complex
wine that reflects the propri-
etary blend of cabernet sauvi-
gnon, merlot and cabernet
franc, also from the Oak Knoll
district. Nice complex nose of
cherries with a hint of herbs.
This wine is rich and round in
the mouth with cherry and
berry flavors, and a long and
satisfying finish. The Alsace
winemaking family of Hugel .&
Fils also has'a wine suggestion
for Valentine's Day the
Hugel et Fils Pinot Blanc
"Cuvee Les Amours" 2005
($16). Legend has it that this
wine's name was suggested by
a titled British lady at a lunch-
eon at the Hugel's home in
the 1970s. Enamored with the
wine she suggested "Cuvee Les
Amoreaux" (the lovers blend)
which due to potential confu-
sion with a property in
Burgundy evolved into "Cuvee
Les Amours" (the blend of
This very reasonably priced
pinot blanc is a delight to
drink. The wine offers a min-
eral, peach nose. Rich and
round in the mouth with sub-
tle peach, melon fruit notes,
and a nice finish of palate
cleansing acidity. This wine
would be a great accompani-
ment with appetizers, or Asian
Mollydooker Carnival of
Love 2006 ($80). Rated very
high by most wine critics, this
Australian shiraz is hedonistic.
Delicious forward berry fruit,
full body and with the right
name for the occasion.

Weekend 6 The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader February 8, 2008



the home can be found many places

T ere are lots of ways to
show that "you've
arrived" in life, but few
say it in the home as much as
real art.
It's tempting to buy a whole
room package that furniture
stores offer, but prints that
you buy just because they
match your sofa don't have
the same kind of air that a:
bonafide painting does.
The problem with art is that
everyone thinks that if they
can't afford a real Rembrandt,
then they shouldn't buy art at
all. Nothing is further from
the truth.
Although original art work
is considered an upper crust
luxury, real art can be found
in places you might not have
thought of and for prices that
are less than that print that
matches your sofa.
Get personal
One of the things I like
most in my home is the pres-
ence of real art. It comes
from family members and
from our travels, and a couple
of paintings came from art
galleries, even fewer are ones I
painted myself.'
But most of it was collected
from travel. Artistry and
craftsmanship is something
more commonly available in
countries around the world
than it is here.
I've collected Thangka reli-
gious paintings in Katmandu,
large paintings done on silk in
India and I even bought a
beautiful tapestry for a song
in Florence. The nice thing
about collecting paintings on
canvas in other countries is
that they can be easily rolled
up and put into your suitcase,
weighing very little.
It makes art a wonderful
souvenir and you've got
something to put on your
walls to remind you of your


travels. Plus, it's an original
piece unlike anything you can
buy anywhere else.
Buy local
Many local artists are
ignored in favor of big-name
artists with shops in the malls
and high-priced galleries.
If this appeals to you that's
fine, but many local artists are
unrecognized treasures. If y6u
see a piece of artwork that you
like displayed at a mall by a
high school student, call the
school the student attends
and "commission" a painting
for yourself.
You could just launch the
career of a budding artist.
Many communities have art
classes and galleries where art
students buy supplies and dis-
play their work.
Their work is often much
less than you would pay at a
high-priced gallery in a large
city. Even my little town of
five thousand people has a
wonderful art gallery
ofcuero.com with reasonably-
priced artwork by local artists
in a wonderful variety of
styles and mediums.
Make your own

Place a piece of artwork on a wall and light it up dramatically. It makes the art seem more important and stand out. Create art
from items around the house and search out local galleries. Unique and original pieces of art don't have to be costly and real art is

new dirt to the surrounding
roots of the new plant.
Settling can make the plant
go too deep and over time,
many plants become rotten at
the roots. The objective is to
make a wide area of soft,
inviting soil so the roots are
encouraged to grow horizon-
Reminder: The same soil
that was dug from the hole
goes back into it, with no
additives of any kind. Why?
Because research has shown
'that because the plants really
love the additional goodies
that we used to go into the
hole, their roots stayed in that

hole in a tight ball, not want-
ing to venture into the other-
wise, lousy soil.
What happens over time is
that the tree/shrub starts to
die, and when the homeown-
er finally digs it up, he finds
that the roots are all circled
and tightly bound to one
another making for a very
weak root system. The feeder
roots have not ventured any-
where to find naturally-pro-
vided nutrients and thus,
there is poor root support for
the plant, resulting in a weak
plant which quickly dies.
By using the lousy soil that
we have, the plant actually
adjusts to it, and the good

amendments like compost,
manure, etc. can be placed on
top of the finished planting so
they slowly filter into the soil,
feeding the new roots and
encouraging them to spread.

Equally important is the
daily watering of these new
plants. It must be done at the
soil level by a slowly dripping
hose; usually two hours a day
for 2-3 weeks will be adequate

in getting the roots "partially-
Overhead watering will not
do it.

they can be driven for up to 150 miles at reduced speeds. So now when you look In the trunk, all you'll find is less weight and
