Funny what can happen to a
drummer when he takes 25
years off from his craft to
become a doctor and raise
three kids.
"I'm a better drummer than
I've ever been, and it's not
because I practice more," Tom
Hilton, the new drummer for
FlatBlack, said this week.
"Although my technical
skills are no better, my under-
standing of what the drummer
is supposed to do in a rock
band is much better," said
Hilton,,chief of cardiology at

practice Saturday in a con-

(left) and Daniel Angers, and
(back) Charles Duren (left)
and Tom Hilton. Hilton (above

Beaches, where he is chief of


Baptist Medical Center
Beaches and a Ponte Vedra
Beach resident.
And what is the drummer
supposed to do?
"Kind of shut up and keep
the beat," he said. .
FlatBlack has taken on
Hilton and two other new
members since the Palm
Valley band premiered at
Freebird Live! in Jacksonville
Beach last summer.
The others are Charles
Duren on vocals and Daniel
Angers on saxophone.
When FlatBlack founder
Serena Bass, 18, asked
Freebird's booking agent
recently if the band could
open for Jonny Winter, she got
good news and bad news, she
said this week.
"Jonny Winter already had a
band," she said. But the

fire service

tax change

A new method of paying for fire services will be
considered Tuesday by the St. Johns County
Commission as the county heads into the first
budget year post-Amendment 1.
As proposed, fire services only not 911 serv-
ice nor emergency medical services would
change from a property tax to an. assessment,
"thus removing the inequities of the existing"
funding, notes an explanation of the proposal.
"What it does is allow us to ... buy apparatus
and build buildings and pay for it through bond-
ing" rather than through operating funds, Tom
Manuel, St. Johns County Commission chairman,
said Thursday.
"The plan is to reduce the general fund by the
amount" generated by the assessment, he said.
An assessment is considered more equitable
than a property tax for fire services because with
the former, similar houses would be assessed an
equal amount, said Jesse Dunn, assistant budget
director for St. Johns County.
Next door neighbors, for example, would pay
the same assessment, regardless of when each
bought the house, Dunn explained.
But as the tax is now, there could be a big dis-
crepancy in the fire tax between those same hous-
es because of rising home values and Florida's law
limiting increases in taxable value on

Ease of tree rule

asked for PV High

The St. Johns Board of County Commissioners
will consider Tuesday a proposal by the St. Johns
County School District to ease some of Nocatee's
sidewalk and landscaping requirements for Ponte
Vedra High School.
4 At issue is Davis Park Road, which extends
south from County Road 210 about one mile west
of the Palm Valley bridge and provides access to
Davis Park, New Beginnings Baptist Church and
Ponte Vedra High School.
The church and the school are currently under
construction. Ponte Vedra High School is sched-
uled to open in August, and New Beginnings is
expected to open in October.
Although the Parc Group, master developer of
Nocatee, and New Beginnings are helping to pay
for the road, the School District bears the brunt of
the cost.
"[The School District] is responsible for 72 per-
cent of the cost," Tim Forson, executive director
of facilities and operations for the School District,
told members of the St. Johns County Planning
and Zoning Agency (PZA) last week.

Unusual petition

puts hold on sewer

A permit from the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) for a sewer line on North Roscoe
Boulevard has been delayed because two nearby residents
petitioned for an administrative hearing to deny the per-
mits, a county engineer said Thursday.
Chief engineer Robert Zammataro, a former DEP employ-
ee, said the petition is extremely unusual.
I "In my three years there I never heard of a [sewer line]
being petitioned," he said in a telephone interview.
The DEP permit is the last hurdle blocking Michael
Johnigean, president of Empire Development Group, from
installing the line. The sewer line would allow North
Roscoe residents, most of whom have septic tank systems,
to hook up to the sewer system.
The line is a 4-inch pipe that will run 3,390 feet from
North Roscoe Boulevard and Solana Road north to the end
of North Roscoe.
"Generally speaking, the line will be 10 feet away from
the road and 5 feet away from the properties," Zammataro
said. He added that the line would run parallel to the street
between the road and the right-of-way.
After the line is completed, the St. Johns County Utility
Department will take over the line.
Speaking to about 30 people at a meeting Tuesday in the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, Zammataro explained
that the sewer system will be a low pressure system,

It's profitable

- but not easy 'going green'

Going "green" is an emerg-
ing trend that has some local
businesses cleaning up. their
Several guest speakers at a
Beaches Chamber of
Commerce Luncheon in
Ponte Vedra Beach
Wednesday explained the
growing significance of busi-
nesses becoming more envi-
ronmentally friendly.
"It's just the right thing to
do in this day and age unless
you want to wake up to a
landfill in your back yard,"
said TPC clubhouse general
manager Bill Hughes.
Hughes is six months into
the process of making "green"
S the $32 million TPC
Clubhouse, where the lunch-
eon was held.
Hughes said that surveys
show consumers want to do
business with companies that
are "green-friendly."
"Listen to your customers.
They're yelling loudly. They
want businesses to be green,"
he said.
But, the definition of
"green" has some gray areas,
according to Hughes.
"There're no definite steps
in criteria for becoming
green," he said.
Commercial Real Estate
Developer Chuck Harcrow of
Jacksonville-based Newcom
Development said that
Europe and the West Coast
are much more advanced in
the establishment of "green"
criteria, which he said his
company has incorporated
into its building standards.
He explained that the entire
European Union uses a

points-based rating system for
their building code, known as
the Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design, or
The company studied the
concept of "going green" for a
year before making the deci-
sion to. make it a primary
"The biggest impact with us
was materials and resources,"
he said at Wednesday's meet-
For example, the company
uses recycled concrete and
tries to use regional materials
so less diesel is used to trans-
port them.
"When you think green,
think sustairiability," he said,
adding that commercial
buildings use a vast amount
of cosumable resources, such
as water and electricity.
He said that there are sever-
al benefits to going green,
including keeping people
healthier, saving resources
and making considerable
"We discovered it was not
only the right thing to do, it
was the profitable thing to
do," said Harcrow. "We will
make money."
Environmental Consultant
'Cara Connolly of the
Jacksonville Ecology Division
for Environmental Services
Inc. said- the transition into
the "green movement" has its
"roots in some of the prob-
lems facing the country
On the First Coast, for
example, climate changes, ris-
ing sea levels and flood risks
have gotten the attention of
some businesses, which are
voluntarily becoming more
environmentally friendly, she

"In the past, environmental
initiatives were a result of a
requirement, but now that's
changed," Connolly said.
Connolly said locally, some
businesses and land owners
are participating in the LEED
program. There also are other
programs that offer tax incen-
tives for cleaning up a con-
taminated piece of property.
There is also a movement
toward more "green" regula-
tions, according to Connolly.
Harcrow added that in three
to five years, Florida will most
likely have more stringent
building code requirements
that follow the example of

steps to become more envi-

produce and reducing water

The TPC clubhouse, which opened in Ponte Vedra Beach last spring in time for the annual Players
Championship golf tournament in May, has been undergoing changes to help make it more envi-

although there is no clear-cut
method to "going green," the
best place to start is with

employees and the company's

.as opposed to the vatuum system
installed in the Ponte Vedra Municipal
Service District (MSD) in 2005. He said
there is not an open lot nearby the
North Roscoe line to install the central
system needed for the vacuum system.
Residents wishing to hook up to the
line must apply for. a new.tap with the -
county, pay $2,174 for a unit coninec-
tion fee, then have a plumber or con-
tractor do the installation.
To connect to the line, residents
must become JEA water service cus-
tomers, Zammataro explained.
"To be on a public sewer system you
kind of have to be on public water sys-
tem because the sewer bill is based on
water meter usage," he said.
If Johnigean is able .to obtain the
permit, the sewer line will take three
months to install.
Some North Roscoe residents are
skeptical of Johnigean's intentions in
regards to the line, suspecting he is
installing it in order to sell the nearby
lots he owns to developers, according
to an e-mail from Nels Frostenson, a
North Roscoe resident.

Will road to PV High have trees every 100 ft?

- TREES, from A-1

To reduce those costs, the
School District wants to elimi-
nate the requirement of a side-
walk on the east side of Davis
Park Road from the Davis Park
entrance south to the high
school entrance.
Once the road reaches the
school, the School District con-
tends the walkways on the
campus render the sidewalk
requirements unnecessary.
The requirements are part of
the standards for Nocatee, the
15,000-acre development west
of Ponte Vedra Beach.
During the PZA meeting,
Forson told PZA members the
changes would save the School
District about $200,000.
Other proposed changes
include reducing the number
of trees along the road from

the Davis Park entrance south
to the high school entrance
from one every 100 feet to one
every 150 feet, and allowing a
cheaper swale drainage system
instead of the required curb
and gutter system.
PZA members voted 7-0 to
recommend all but one of the
changes for approval, rejecting
the request for fewer trees than
called for.
"To me, that is going to real-
ly look odd, going from one
tree every 100 feet to one every
150 feet," PZA board member
Dick Williams said during the
Feb. 7 meeting in St.
But one county planner said
the proposed changes would
free up funds for the School
District to spend on class-

"We're trying to cut the cost
for the School District so they
can concentrate on what they
normally do, and that is edu-
cating our children," Teresa
Bishop, director of growth
management services for the
county, said during the meet-
Documents in the School
District's application for the
changes state that School
Board members and county
commissioners discussed the
changes during a joint meeting
in February 2007, and they
"received a general consensus."
County commissioners are
scheduled to hear the proposal
during their regular meeting,
which begins at 9 a.m. in the

P- FIRE TAX, from A-1
homesteaded properties.
The law keeps increases to 3
percent per year, so a home
owned for 15 years would have
a lower taxable value than a
similar house purchased
recently next door, so the
property taxes would reflect
that difference, even though
both houses would presumably
get the same service in a fire,
Dunn said.
The amount of the assess-
ment would be determined
during the budget process,
which begins Tuesday when
commissioners are scheduled
to establish guidelines for
forming the budget that takes
effect Oct. 1.

Manuel said about 90 coun-.'

"We're just starting this [fire
service] discussion, Manuel
said, adding that the commis-
sion is "moving to a two-year
budget cycle" for planning pur-
poses, although budgets will
continue to be approved year-
"We're going to take a longer
planning horizon" to help level
out spikes in funding, he said.
Also at Tuesday's meeting,
commissioners are expected to
approve funding to help pay
for a 400-foot-long sidewalk on
the west side of Ponte Vedra

The county's portion would
be 38 percent of construction
costs plus inspection services.

The Leader's Opinion

A promise is not

worth a thing

unless it's kept

Where does an 800-pound gorilla sit?
Anywhere it wants to, no ifs, ands or buts about it.
That old joke seems to be particularly on point these
days as Nocatee pursues a plan to add 541 acres along the
Intracoastal north of County Road 210 to its 15,000-acre
But residents are not laughing at Nocatee's heavy-hand-
ed attempt to get the county's OK to build single-family
homes along the waterway.
When Nocatee was originally approved in 2001, the
developers promised that Nocatee would not extend to
the Intracoastal.
That promise was important to residents.
Developers are offering various reasons why the prop-
erty by the Intracoastal should be part of their mega-
development. Recreational space and parking for the
Players Championship hinge on Nocatee getting
approval to build on the waterfront property, they say.
Residents who object to the expansion cite environ-
mental impacts and other concerns.
There is one overwhelming reason, however, why the
county should immediately tell Nocatee no, it will not be
allowed to add the waterfront acreage to its development.
The reason is that promises made should be kept -it's
that simple.
Nocatee told the county it would not touch the water-
way. That promise was integral to the project getting orig-
inal approval. The promise should be honored.
The county commission should immediately rebuff
Nocatee's plan for waterfront development and make it
clear that a promise is a promise. No ifs, ands or buts
about it.

Social Security will assess disability better

know from personal experi-
ence how difficult Social
Security's disability process
can be. When my father was
52, he suffered a severe cerebral
hemorrhage caused by a rare
form of brain cancer. As I took
care of the application for him,
it opened my eyes to the com-
plicated rules associated with
our disability programs.
Each year, approximately 2.5
million people apply for Social
Security disability benefits. On
average, one-third of them are
approved upon initial applica-
tion, which takes an average of
three months for a decision. But
for those who are denied and
appeal the decision to the hear-
ing level, it can take a long time
to receive a decision much too
long, in my optiion.
Right now, there are more
than 750,000 cases waiting for a
hearing and the average time to
get a hearing decision is 499
days. Pending hearings have
doubled since 2001. In addi-
'tion-.,the number ofrapplica7-
tions for disability benefits has
been extraordinarily high
throughout the last seven years
and we can expect it to be even
higher in the coming years.
Social Security's disability
programs have grown signifi-
cantly over the last seven years
and will continue to do so at an
increasing rate as aging baby
boomers reach their most dis-
ability-prone years. At the same
time, Congress has added new
and non-traditional workloads
to Social Security's responsibili-
ties. As a result, the agency is
struggling to balance those new
responsibilities with its core
workloads under tight resource

That's why I've made improv-
ing the disability determination
process my top priority. It is our
most pressing challenge.
Last year I appeared before
the Senate Finance Committee
to present an aggressive plan to
reduce the backlog and
improve the disability process.
New initiatives will eliminate
the hearings backlog.
The first is the- -Quirck
Disability Determination
(QDD), a process based on a
computer model that allows us
to screen cases with a high
potential for approval. The
QDD process has proved highly
successful in the Boston region,
and the average processing time
now is just 8 days. On
September 5, 2007, the agency
issued a final rule extending
QDD nationwide. By the end of
this month, every state will be
processing QDD cases and
about 5% of all allowances will
be handled through QDD.
The second, Compassionate
Allowances, is a way of quickly
identifying medical conditions

that invariably qualify under
our listings. In these cases,
which are often rare diseases
unfamiliar to reviewers,
allowances will be made as soon
as the diagnosis is confirmed. In
December 2007, we held the
first public hearing on this ini-
tiative and will hold three more
hearings this year. You can learn
more about compassionate
allowances at www.socialsecuri-
In addition, Social Security
has opened a National Hearing
Center (NHC). The NHC allows
the agency to capitalize on new
technologies such as electronic
disability folders and video tele-
conferencing and gives needed
flexibility to address the coun-
try's worst backlogs. We also are
hiring 175 new Administrative
Law Judges (ALJs), the largest
group of new ALJs ever hired by
Social Security in a single year.
We expect to start bringing
these ALJs on board in the
--spring. -
These are but a few of the
many initiatives the agency has
under way. When it comes to
eliminating disability backlogs,
there is no single magic bullet.
But with additional staff,
enhanced business processes
and improved ways of fast-
tracking targeted cases, I believe
we can improve the disability
process and waiting times.
To learn more about Social
Security's plan to reduce the
hearings backlog go to

SoLial Security.

If you encounter police

very day many citizens
and visitors come in con-
tact with Deputy Sheriffs'
for a variety of reasons. From
a routine traffic stop to an
active investigation we must
engage citizens continually
during the course of our
duties. Problems could occur,
however, when citizens do not
know how to react and
respond when approached by
an officer. This lack of knowl-
edge could result in fear, nerv-
ousness, anger, or even aggres-
sive behavior on the part of
the citizen as well as the offi-
cer. The response of many
folks who have never had any
contact with a law enforce-
ment officer is often predicted
upon what they had seen in
the movies or on television. It
is my hope that the informa-
tion gained here will assist
you when dealing with our
deputies and detectives.
Let's begin by asking the
question why would an officer
want to stop and question me?
There may be many reasons.
The officer or deputy could be
checking out a complaint that
was phoned in by a neighbor.
There could be a report of
some criminal activity which
occurred in the area. You may
have witnessed something that
could provide valuable infor-
mation in an investigation. Or
your actions could case the
deputy to think you are having
trouble and need assistance.
The best way to clarify the sit-
uation is to ask questions.
Remember that some of their
questions are not necessarily
an accusation, but a potential
conflict could be alleviated.
Sometimes problems arise
when it seems that you have
been stopped for what you feel

is no reason at all. A crime
may have occurred nearby and
we only have a minimal
description of a possible sus-
pect that may resemble you.
Maybe your actions appear to
the officer to be suspicious, for
example: running from an area
where a crime had just
occurred. Another witness
may have pointed you out as a
suspect. If a deputy does stop
and question you, your honest
responses will usually resolve
the situation quickly. If the
officer hasn't told you why you
have been stopped, you have
every right to inquire. If
despite these considerations,
you feel that you do not want
to respond, the deputy must
respect your right not to
Another common occur-
rence is the traffic stop.
Officers make many traffic
stops for a variety of reasons.
Many times the traffic stop is
for an infraction, for a safety
violation, or the vehicle or
driver matches a description of
a suspect of a recent crime.
Here are some suggestions that
could alleviate some fears of an

officer at a traffic stop. When
signaled by a deputy, slow
down and safely pull over to a
place out of the traffic flow. Sit
calmly, with your hands visible
on the steering wheel. If you
have any passengers, ask them
to sit quietly with their hands
visible. Avoid sudden move-
ments or ducking in the seat;
these actions could unneces-
sarily alarm the officer. If the
stop is at night, turn on your
inside light after pulling over.
For safety reasons, the deputy
would want to visually scan
the car's interior before pro-
ceeding. Do not get out of
your car unless the officer or
deputy asks that you step out.
If you are asked to do so, com-
ply in a calm manner. A sure
way to put a deputy at ease is
to communicate your actions
in advance by telling him or
her what you will be doing
before you move. If requested,
you must give the deputy your
driver's licenses and vehicle
registration. Be sure to tell the
officer where it is before reach-
in'g for it, especially if you have
it tucked away in a glove box
or some other place.
Finally, if you are issued a
citation, you will be asked to
sign it. Remember, signing the
citation is not an admission of
guilt, but an acknowledgement
that you have received the
citation. Arguments over or
protests about the situation
cannot be resolved in the

Boys aim for another state title


Look out

for Junior

in Daytona

on Sunday

Since last summer, the
thought of Dale Earnhardt
Jr. joining four-time
NASCAR champion Jeff
Gordon and reigning two-
time champ Jimmie Johnson
on the same team has brought
visions of dominance.
Thoughts of what the
Hendrick team was going to
do when it got down to
Daytona were kind of scary, if
you ask any NASCAR fan.
The non-points first "offi-
cial" race of the season, the
Budweiser Shootout, gave fans
a glimpse of what is to come.
Earnhardt dominated the
race, leading a Shootout-
record 47 laps, and sharing
the lead numerous times with
new teammates Gordon and
Johnson. All three drivers fin-
ished in the top-four and
Hendrick's fourth driver,
Casey Mears, finished sixth.
The following day, Johnson
won the Pole for the Daytona
500, earning the right to start
first in the race.
If NASCAR's first weekend is
any indication of what the
remainder of Speed Weeks, or
the entire 2008 season for that
matter, holds, everyone else
will be driving for second, or
maybe fourth, if the Big Three
keep things up.
Expectations were high for
Earnhardt before he even sat
down in his new No. 88 car.
Media and fans wondered if
the pressure of joining such
an elite team would be too
much for Earnhardt.
Seems he aced the first
Junior started fifth in one of
yesterday's Gatorade Duels,
behind Johnson in first and
Mears in third. Should any of
the Hendricks drivers win
their races (only Gordon will
race in the second Duel), it
should be a good indicator of
what to see come Sunday.
But there are other favorites.
Tony Stewart, who gave
Eamhardt a strong run during
the Shootout, is always a con-
tender at the track, winning a
Shootout a few years ago and
a couple of Pepsi 400s.
The only disadvantage that
Stewart, who's been quoted as
saying he'd do anything,
wreck anyone, to win a
Daytona 500, has is the six-
race probation he and Kurt
Busch received for an incident
prior to the Shootout.
Fans who watched last
year's Daytona 500 remember
those two drivers were domi-
nating the race before wreck-
ing each other while running
first and second.
Other drivers worth watch-
ing include Michael Waltrip, a
year removed from the embar-
rassment of having an illegal
substance in his engine and a
former two-time Daytona 500
winner. Those who remember
'how terrible the Toyotas ran
in their first season should be
impressed by how much the
car make has picked up so far
in Speed Weeks.
Juan Pablo Montoya might
be worth watching after his
impressive run at Talladega
last fall. The former Indy 500
champ now has a year under
his belt as well.
And don't count out several
other drivers: last year's win-
ner Kevin Harvick; Denny
Hamlin, who always runs
strong at Daytona, or Jamie
McMurray, winner of last
year's Pepsi 400.
It is the Daytona 500 after
all. Like we just saw a few
weeks ago in the Super Bowl,
you never know who will win.
But I don't see a Hendricks
car, especially Earnhardt's,
falling short of victory.

the two Class
4A semifinals ...

Nease got on the board in
the 33rd minute of the match
when junior.forward Filip
Ivanov scored on an assist
from A. Jay Nelson. It was
Ivanov's 34th goal of the sea-
son, and Nelson's 17th assist.

squared things three minutes
later as Kevin Orellana booted

went to halftime tied at 1-all.
About 14 minutes into the
second half, Nease's Myles
Wright scored the Panthers'
go-ahead goal off a Joe
McKinley corner kick.
The pair hooked up again in
the game's 70th minute with

goal of the match (and fifth of
the season) to make it 3-1 in
favor of the Panthers.
Three minutes later,

Running for a reason and running for a cause

It is Friday, February the
15th, 2008; do you know
what that means? It means
that we are just two days away
from the most anticipated run-
ning event of the past year and
a half: The 26.2 With Donna.
The expo is open, the partici-
pants are prepared and excite-
ment is in the air.
This sort of thing has not
been seen since the inaugural
River Run 15,000 way back in
But outside of her glamorous
newscaster persona, who is
Donna? How did this huge
event, "The National Marathon
To Fight Breast Cancer" come
to be? And what does the
Donna Hicken Foundation do
and whom has it helped?
Donna is a Jacksonville
native who attended San Jose
Catholic Elementary School
and Bishop Kenney High
School. You see her every
weekday as a news anchor on
WTLV's First Coast News. She
has been there since 1988.
She was once married to the
sports anchor on the same
channel, Dan Hicken. Together
they had two children,
Danielle and Drew. She is mar-
ried to meteorologist Tim
Deegan. She has been using



the name Deegan more lately
although her foundation
retains the title Donna Hicken.
In 1999, at the age of 38, she
was diagnosed with breast can-
cer. In 2002, she battled the
disease again. She wrote a
book, The Good Fight, about
her personal struggle against
the disease.
It was learning about an area
woman with breast cancer who
was having a hard time not
only with cancer, but also with
making ends meet financially
that inspired Donna to create a
foundation to help local
women in need. And it was her
involvement in running that

led her to imagine and then
realize "The National
Marathon To Fight Breast
Since its inception five years
ago, Julie Terrazzano has been
the executive director of the
Donna Hicken Foundation.
She has also been a close friend
of Donna's since they were ten
years old.
"It was just the germ of an
idea," Terrazzano said. "Donna
told me she thought about cre-
ating a marathon to raise
awareness and funds for the
cause. I told her, 'If you get it
together, I will even run in it.'"
On Sunday, Terrazzano, still
recovering from the flu, will
participate in the Hicken Half-
Marathon, the race-within-the-
race that will accompany the
main event.
"We hoped for 5,000 runners
but we have more than 6,000
and now we have to plan for
7,000," she said. "We have run-
ners from nine different coun-
tries in the world."
Terrazzano continued: "This
is not only an inaugural breast
cancer marathon for
Jacksonville, it is a first in the
United States. This has never
been done before.
"The money raised by the
event will be split by the Mayo

Clinic and the Donna Hicken
Foundation. All the money will
stay right here, The Mayo
Clinic will use it for clinical tri-

als for breast
cancer and
we will use it
to help out
women in
need with
breast cancer
here on the
First Coast.
exciting is
that Dr. Edith
Perez of the
Mayo Clinic
is like the
rock star of
breast cancer
clinicians and
because of,
her, I am sure
that when a
cure is found
for breast
cancer it will
be right here

Brunswick to St. Augustine and
west to Lake City, the Hicken
Foundation has given help and
hope to so many.

The money raised by
the event will be split by
the Mayo Clinic and, the
Donna Hicken Founda

stay right here. The
Mayo Clinic will use it fo
clinical trials for breaks

to help out women ii

Father and son surf

to top of the North

Florida ESA rankings

Father and son surfers Jim
and Kevin Cox are the
No. 1 surfers in their
divisions for the North
Florida district of the Eastern
Surfing Association [ESA].
Kevin, 16, won regionals
last year in junior men's (ages
15-17) and went undefeated
in every heat during the sea-
son. Jim, 52, surfs in the leg-
ends long board [ages 50 and
up] and grandmasters short
board [ages 45-54] divisions
and placed fourth at regionals
last year.
"Kevin has been entertain-
ing us on the beach since he
was 5 years old," said Mitch
Kaufmann, director of the
North Florida district, the
largest 'district of the ESA this
"In the past year, he has
progressed faster than anyone
his age. He is our No. 1
Junior and the most likely
candidate to win the

"When the waves are good,
he's at the pier raising the
performance level."
Kevin placed a disappoint-
ing seventh overall on the
East Coast last year in his
first appearance in the ESA
Championships in Cape
Hatteras, N.C. One of his
scores was cut in half during
a heat when three surfers
went for the same wave.
"My goal this
year is to do better
in Easterns and
not get a call,"
Kevin said. "Three
people were pad-
dling for one

go right, he went
left and he was up

Jim Cox's fourth
place finish at
regionals qualified
him to surf in the
ESA champi- $*or
onships last year
but he didn't have
the vacation time
from his job as
general manager
for the
Guide publication.
"It killed me last year not .
being able to go and see
Kevin surf his first time at
Hatteras," said Jim, who has
already set his vacation time
this year for the regionals
and East Coast champi-
"Surfing is the total father-
son thing to do for us. It's
something he's enjoyed from
the time he was a little kid
and it's a passion of mine. I
get to spend time with him
and the youth in the commu-
nity through ESA."
Jim Cox started surfing in
Ocean City, Maryland in
1968. He and his family lived
in Baltimore during the
school year [he went to
Calvert Hall High School for
any relocated Marylanders
reading this] and spent sum-
mers living in Ocean City.
When it was time to select
a college, Jim chose
Jacksonville University for its
art department and proximity
to the ocean. He moved to
Jacksonville in 1974 and has
lived here ever since.
"We have a great tribe here
in North Florida," Jim said.
"We all look out for each
other and our kids. It's a pret-
ty cool environment."
Jim surfed a couple of con-
tests when he was young but
didn't really begin to surf
competitively in the ESA
until 1999 when Kevin start-
ed surfing. Jim not only surfs,
he also volunteers with the
ESA events helping out in
any way he can from timing
heats to breaking down
"We are lucky to have Jim
Cox here in North Florida,"
Kaufmann said. "He is a huge
help at all ESA contests, as
well as the WaveMasters
Contest. Jim always has a
smile and a positive attitude,
which is a real pleasure under
the tent."
Kevin lives in Atlantic
Beach, and attended Atlantic
Beach Elementary until sec-

ond grade. He was home
school by his mom, Lorraine
Cox, from third to sixth
grade and then attended
Fletcher Middle for seventh
and eighth grade.
He is currently in high

Civil rights author at The Book Mark

Author and journalist Charles
E. Cobb Jr., a founding member
of the National Association of
Black Journalists, will speak and
sign copies of his latest book,
"On the Road to Freedom: A-
GuiaT -Tou6foT'fte Civil Rights
Trail," at 7 p.m. Saturday at The
Book Mark in Atlantic Beach.
A prominent black journalist
who has reported for National
Public Radio, PBS's "Frontline"
and National Geographic maga-
zine, Cobb will share his inti-
mate knowledge of the civil
rights movement.
As a college student at
Howard University in the early
1960s, Cobb helped register
black voters in rural Mississippi
as a member of the Student
Nonviolent Coordinating
Committee (SNCC).
Filled with maps, photo-
graphs and first-hand inter-
views, "On the Road to
Freedom" (Algonquin Books,
$18.95) is a useful travel guide
for anyone interested in retrac-
ing 400 historic sites along the
civil rights trail, including ones
in Jacksonville.
From the Freedom Rides of
1961 to the assassination of Dr.
Martin Luther King at the
Lorraine Motel in Memphis in
1968, Cobb takes the reader "to
the places where the pioneers of
the movement march, sat-in at lunch counters and gathered in
churches," the book says.
"He pays tribute not only to the men anl women etched into

our national memory, but to local
people whose seemingly small
contributions made an impact."
When he was in college, Cobb
said he picketed a Woolworth's in
Massachusetts to show solidarity
for southern protesters.
"There was a discussion going
on among a lot of students about
"Whether sit-ins would really
change anything, [or] whether
you should commit a real chunk
of time to working in the South,"
Cobb recalled in an interview
posted at noeasyvictories.org.
"And it stuck me that more
than sitting at lunch counters,
this was probably something
After reading about the exploits
of the Freedom Riders in his col-
lege newspaper at Howard, Cobb
joined the SNCC and spent five
years in Mississippi. organizing
black voters.
"As a field secretary for the
SNCC, I came in contact with
journalists and saw what they
wrote. Inevitably, one says, 'I can
do a hell of a lot better than that.'
It seemed to be important to
begin to figure out ways to com-
municate what I'd seen."
In 1969,, Cobb left a teaching
job to live and report in Tanzania.
He has been a foreign affairs cor-
respondent ever since and is cur-
rently a senior writer for
He co-authored "No Easy
Victories: African Liberation and
American Activists over a Half Center, 1950-2000."
"On the Road to Freedom" was published in December 2007.

Retiring from writing, not gardening,

T his is my final article of
a long writing career
with The Beaches Leader.
I have been writing a week-
ly column since 1987. I will
continue to be available to
you as a Master Gardener in
receiving your phone ques-
tions, and you can place this
number 363-9872, somewhere
handy so you can call me if
you need gardening advice.
As always, you can call the
Cooperative Extension Service
at 387-8850 M-F and ask for a
Master Gardener as well. I
hope there will be many
things you have learned or
laughed about if you've read
my column for all these years!
Amidst the colorful annuals,
perennials and fresh green
shrubs and trees readily avail-
able at this time of year, we
-are-alse"enticed by.the tropi-
cal-plants, especially the tan-
talizing bougainvillea.
You simply can't miss this
plant in its gorgeous colors,
strutting its stuff and proudly
saying "You can't walk past
me without noticing me!" If
you haven't purchased one in
the past, I bet you will this
year, simply because you can-
not resist them! I can't, but
they drive me crazy.
I get plenty of questions
from you all and still don't
have great answers. But, this
spring, I will try again; my
yard is sunny and these guys
love the sun, are supposed to
do well in zones 9-11 (we are
zone 9), and some are in pots
while others are in the
ground. Spring gives me the
renewed energy to play with a
plant again, and perhaps this
year, I'll have a beauty. I live
inland by the Avenues Mall
and I think those of you liv-
ing closer to the beach are
luckier than I with this plant.


careful of the thorns, watch
your language when the plant
acts up on you, and let me
know how you do!
* Perhaps you have received.
some seed catalogs-and-are
planning to buy something
new for the vegetable garden.
I get Park's Seed Catalog, a
company from Greenwood,
SC, and just listen to some of
the names of new vegetables
:" Tomato 'Big Rainbow', Beet
'Touchstone Gold', Pea
'Blondie', Carrot 'White Star',
Tomato 'Red Currant', Pak-
Choi 'Violetta', and Corn
'Mini Yellow Mirai'. Gosh, I'd
buy them all just to see what
they look like. It sounds like
these would be a sure way to
get a child who despises veg-
etables really turned on to
There is "A Day of
Gardening" workshop, to be
held on Saturday, Feb. 23,
from 9-3 at the Duval County
Coop. Extension Service that
you will not want to miss,
especially if you are new to
the area. Topics from speakers
will be on pesticides, fertiliz-
ers, organic gardening, herbs,

growing palms, growing toma-
toes, tips for your lawns, com-
posting, vermiculture, grow-
ing fruits, landscape design
and the care of those plants,
conservation of water as we
garden, enticing wildlife to
your yard, and recognizing
what is an "invasive" plant as
well as a "native" plant.
There will be many exhibits
as well, and to me, this is a
program every homeowner
should attend. I do not know
how they expect to get all
these topics covered, but
believe me, the speakers are
terrific! There is a $10 fee, and
you must register by Feb. 21
by calling 387-8850.
Just attending and absorb-
ing one day of this type of
information will give you the
confidence you need, and the
~rationale to understand the
'whys" and howss" of all
aspects of gardening in NE
Florida. Try to attend.
We are still encouraging you
to hold off on the drastic
pruning, even though things
look pretty bad. I am having a
hard time myself, but I am
sure we will get another night
of temperatures in the freez-
ing range. It is OK to prune
crape myrtles if you really
need to, and for an arborist to
thin out large branches of
trees such as the Live Oaks
and Magnolias.
If you have small trees, you
can remove a few branches to
encourage the shape of the
plant as it grows. You never
want the center of the plant
to be all entangled, so select a
few good branches to keep
and prune out the rest. As
soon as the chance of freezes
has passed, you'll be able to
fertilize these plants with a
product like 15-0-15, and they
will take off with new growth.

All shrubs and trees within 5
years of age should be fertil-
ized, some varieties more fre-
quently or with special fertil-
izer blends.
For those of you with palm
trees, depending where you
live you might have some
that are freeze-damaged.
Again, wait until the chance
of a late freeze has passed,
then it is ok to trim off the
cold-damaged fronds. But,
leave any that have green on
them because this provides for
photosynthesis, the way a
plant makes its food. If you
do prune, it is advisable to
spray right afterward with a
fungicide containing copper
that is appropriate for palms,
and repeat it in 10 days.
Copper sprays should not
be used more than twice,
however, because bur*ng the
leaves is a possibility: Ifyou
have palms that are damaged,
try to attend that workshop I
mentioned because the gentle-
man doing the talk on palms
is a real expert, yet easy to .
understand. Palms are a diffi-
cult plant not only to grow
here, but also to keep looking
nice, unless you have the
secret knowledge!
If nothing else in all these
years of writing, I hope you
have learned to accept our
Florida climate just as it is,
and that we can grow some
phenomenal things here.I will
be here, just not in the paper
or when I am away from the
phone. I know so many of
you by your voice but have
never laid eyes on you! I
know it will be hard for me to
quit, but I too, will keep grow-
ing, as I did with this deci-
sion. Who knows, you just
might see me giving a talk or
at a Plant Clinic!

for the eyes Mussorgsky's
"Pictures at an Exhibition" as
you have never heard it or seen
it before! Through a technique
known as "Choreographed Paint-
ing", I Musici De Montreal has
S" created a symbiosis between
painting and music. The paintings "live" and the mu-
sic becomes "visible".
While music exists and can be measured in time, it
doesn't exist in space. Painting exists in space but it
doesn't change through time once it's completed. "Pic-
tures at an Exhibition" comes to life before your eyes
and your ears.

Von Genk, Knight perfect craft

finding a subject, concen-
trating on it and perfect-
ing it, making it your
own, is one of the surest ways
to success and recognition in
the field of art.
Two of the three artists
who opened exhibits at Town
Center last weekend have fol-
lowed this formula.
Henry Von Genk III in his
exhibit, "Florida Captured in
Oils," at Sellers Gallery Annex
Neptune Beach paints marsh-
lands from all different angles
and locations in the same col-
ors but in different sizes.
All frames are the same. It
is s though he has movd
around to different locations
while painting the same
marsh. The works are beauti-
ful and for anyone looking
for marsh scenes you will not
find better or more varied
See his work at 200 First
Street, Neptune Beach. Call'
Another artist has followed
this same rule for success -
concentrating on one form of
art Gregory Knight who
opened an exhibit at Shelby's
Coffee Shoppe last Friday
His chosen field is the
human figure. He paints both
men and women standing
and sitting in a musical set-
ting. A trumpet player, a
dancer, all in vivid color.
The man can draw, the
most important element in
successful art. Interesting, col-
orful, large and small with a
variety of backgrounds, he
has found an art form at
which he excels. See it at 200
First Street, Neptune Beach.
On the same block as the
above mentioned galleries is

opened an exhibit last Friday
night. *

trees. The mermaids are
Unique and beautiful, and I
would hope, the artist wquld
concentrate on this one art

"Pretty Cool' sophomoric and moronic

Think back to your high
school years. Without doubt,
you'll remember the class
geek, usually an awkward, not-
too-bright nerd dressed in
clothes rejected by the local
thrift store. Inside, though,
that less-than-attractive, gan-
gling teen mishap had the
same aspirations as every
other testosterone-driven
male. "Pretty Cool" tells the
story of Will Burke, a bum-
bling character who acquires
the power to read minds and
make gorgeous girls do his bid-
ding. While in no way original
- think of Mel Gibson's "What
Women Want" and Scott Baio's
"Zapped!" it's surprisingly

funny. Juvenile, sophomoric
and even moronic fit it too,
but it's better than most of this
B-movie genre!
Will Burke ("Sex and the
City," "American Dreams")
plays the lead in this R-rated,
92-minute flick. As he's about
to graduate from high school,
he's startled to find summer
school is mandatory. Sick of
teachers and books, he sneaks
into the principal's office and
tries changing his grades on
the school computer. By acci-
dent, the machine crosses
wires with a secret mind con-
-trol experiment.
Burke, somehow, gets
zapped by the errant computer
and acquires the ability to read
minds. He's also able to make
nubile young females, who

abound in this movie, do any-
thing he wishes. Though
detailing his actions would
spoil the flick, think being
invisible in the girls' locker
A standout in this teen com-
edy is Amy Brassette ("Reno
911"), who plays Burke's
snooty, overbearing sister. She
has a similar coterie of friends,
none' of whom will even talk
to the class nerd. With his new
mental powers needing a try-
out, Burke decides extreme
flatulence is a suitable punish-
ment for the holier-than-thou
. Later, in one of the flick's
twists, Brassette exchanges
minds with a female cat in
heat, of course. This leads to
some of the movie's funniest

Rolfe Kanefsky ("Thereis
Nothing out There," "The
Hazing") gets the credit (or
blame) for both directing and
writing the screenplay.
Though the script is merely
adequate, the cast does an
excellent job. Kanefsky gets an
A for eliciting fine -perform-
Before purchasing "Pretty
Cool" (street price: $20), be
sure to visit
www.mtivideo.com to view
the trailer. Surprisingly; the
flick has spawned "Pretty Cool
Too," an entirely separate
video with different players.
The theme's the same, though.
"Pretty Cool" is a notch
above most sophomoric teen
comedies. It's worth a look!

Add a glass of port to your winter ritual

Wliat is it about cold
weather that draws
us to port? Is it the
higher alcohol that warms the
bones or is just a winter ritual
to be enjoyed before a blazing
Saving port for the winter
months is pretty much an
American routine. In Europe,
red and white port is enjoyed
over ice on warm days just as
often as it is enjoyed on a cold
day. But here it is an after-din-
ner drink usually shared with
guests and some cheese.
Like so many other wines,
port was created by winemak-
ers just trying to adapt to dif-
ficult conditions. Because the
English were having a trade
war with France in the 17th
century, wire merchants trav-
eled to Portugal in search of
wine. They found what they
like along the Douro River but
the wine suffered greatly in
the voyage back home. To sta-
bilize them, merchants added
some brandy before they were
shipped. Today, port. is still
fortified with brandy,
although the alcohol is now
added during fermentation.
It isn't just the brandy that
makes the process unique.
Because port is fortified after a
few days of fermentation, it
loses color when the skins are
removed from the juice. To
restore the color, the must is
macerated vigorously.
The best port is made in the*
Douro Valley. Although 80
grape varieties are allowed in
port, respected winemakers
are using but a handful -

'The Wine Guys'
touriga national, tinto barro-
ca, into roriz, touriga franca
and tinto cao. These are hard-
ly names most readers will rec-
ognize, but recently they have
been used to make some inter-
esting non-fortified wines
from the region.
Understanding the differ-
ences between port has been a
marketing nightmare that has
stifled growth. There is ruby,
tawny, vintage, late-bottled
vintage and colheitas to leave
consumers confused.
Consumers may know the dif-
ference between regular wine
and port, but few know their
colheitas and single-quintas.
We'll try to simplify the
most common ports, so bear
with us:
Ruby: The beaujolais of
port, this is the most simple
and inexpensive. It is aged in
large containers for a couple
of years, then bottled young.
The wines come from multiple
vintages and have a fresh, live-

ly style.
Tawny: Theoretically,
tawny has been aged in oak
casks so long that it exchanges
its natural ruby color for a
light, mahogany look.
Tawnies don't have the same
fresh and sweet fruit flavor of
a ruby, but pick up a distinc-
tive nutty flavor. You will see
tawnies that are labeled by the
number of years in casks. -
10, 20, 30 or 40 which is
deceivingly just .an average.
These take on a dry, soft char-
Colheita: This is where it
gets confusing. These are like
tawny ports but from a single
vintage. They must be aged for
at least 7 years and don't need
additional aging.
Vintage port: Despite being
the most collected and com-
monly seen, vintage port rep-
resents less than a percent of
the port produced. As the
name implies, the grapes
come from a single vintage
and only in the best years.
Instead of the winemaker
aging the wines in cask, the
consumer ages them in his
We have some 1977 vintage
port in our cellar that is hold-
ing up nicely. If you are look-
ing to put'away a wine at the
birth of a child, this is it if
the year has been declared a
vintage year.
Late-bottled vintage: LBV
also comes from a single vin-
tage and is bottled after 4 or 5
years in cask. Many have been
fined and filtered to remove
sediment. Many argue that
this process strips a lot of the

flavor from the port.
The two declared vintages
this decade were 2000 and
2003, although good port can
still be made in off years. In
fact, to keep up with the
demand for vintage port,
many producers have begun
to make single quintas port
from the best vineyards but in
undeclared years. We recently
tasted a 1996 Graham's
Malvedos Single Quinta Port
($50) that was superb and rea-
sonably priced. A 1965
Graham single-quinta we tast-
ed-shows how sturdy this wine
can be in even difficult years.
We recommend the ports
from Graham, Dow, Fonseca,
Cockburn, Churchill, Taylor-
Fladgate, Croft and Smith-
Vintage port can cost as
much as $75 a bottle, but 10-
year-old tawny and late-bot-
tled vintage ports are more
reasonably priced. Although
they are best enjoyed by
themselves, ports are simply
incredible when paired with
Stilton cheese. They really fall
apart after the bottle is
opened, so don't plan on
enjoying a small glass every
night for a week.

Bedroom design should reflect couple's taste

When it comes to dec-
orating a master
bedroom, the design
should reflect the taste of the
Unfortunately, many mas-
ter bedrooms only reflect one
taste: the woman's. Mostly
that's because style is typical-
ly left up to the woman in
the relationship.
But, style can also be a by-
product of a "left-over" situa-
For instance, if a woman
moves into a man's home,
the bedroom might reflect
his love of sports or heavy
. Then again, when the kids
come first, master bedroom
decorating often falls last on
the design to-do list.
Regardless of whether your
master bedroom reflects her
taste and love of antique
roses or his taste with its
chrome and dark colors, or
no taste, meaning that the


kids' rooms got all the atten-
tion, a comfortable, appeal-
ing master bedroom is within
Getting Started
Where to start? Look at
interior decorating magazines

together. If your husband
would rather have a root
canal than flip through
design magazines, then zero
in on specifics, such as colors
that are most appealing to
both of you.
Focus on whether you each
prefer dark colors, light col-
ors or neutrals. If he likes
dark colors, think about
painting a dark color on the
wall behind the bed as an
accent color.
Next, look at the styles of
furniture you each prefer.
Lastly, work together to come
up with the feeling you want
the room to have, such as
cozy, light-filled, peaceful,
romantic or even passionate.
If this doesn't work, search
on your own for designs that
appeal to you but that are
neither decidedly feminine
nor masculine.
The room should be gen-
der-neutral, reflecting the
fact that two people occupy

the space.Then, look at pic-
tures together that you have
pulled out from the maga-
zines and use those as your
starting point.
If you're still stumped,
then copy a design. With all
the great bedroom designs
available on the Internet and
on decorating shows, you're
sure to find a design that will
help you put together a bed-
room that takes his and hers
and makes it yours together.
Master Makeover
The master bedroom is a
symbol of togetherness, so
taking time to create a relax-
ing, inviting, and pleasing
environment for both of you
is worth the effort.
Make your master bedroom
a refuge from the rest of the
house. That means putting
the focus on the two of you -
not the television, a comput-
er, or the kids.
Make your bedroom the
KFZ, or "kid-free zone," with
no toys or pictures of the
kids allowed. Great master
bedrooms are designed with
a couple in mind. Use these
tips as starting point.
Matching nightstands and
lamps. It's trendy to use dif-
ferent night tables and
lamps, but using the same on
both sides looks grounded
and coordinated, rather than
mismatched or disjointed.
Make some drama in the
room. Try a fabric panel
behind the bed. This is easy
to do and creates great visual
impact fairly inexpensively.
Or, use a bold stripe of paint
instead of fabric for even
greater cost-effectiveness.
Invite togetherness. Instead
of a standard bench -- or
nothing -- at the foot of the
bed, try placing a love seat
and small table for enjoying
morning coffee together.
Create comfort. Iron beds
can be uncomfortable to lean
against, making late night
reading or talking uncom-
fortable. Find ways to soften

and create more luxury in
the room with textured fab-
rics, new pillows or soft
Create coupleness. Hang
artwork and pictures of the
two of you to remind your-

selves of your relationship
and commitment.
Place objects purchased on
a honeymoon or travels
together that are meaningful
to you both.
