Sales of the 2005 best-seller
"No Country for Old Men"
have spiked partly in
response to the Oscar-nomi-
nated film of the same name.
See story, B-1.

It's a banner year for ath-
letics at Nease High School.
Not only has the Ponte
Vedra Beach school won a
record-tying three state titles
this school year, but Nease is
almost assured of finishing
No. 1 in the state among
Class 4A schools in the
Florida High School Athletic
Association's annual all-
sports standings.
Nease currently sits atop
the 2007-08 Dodge Sunshine
Cup All-Sports Awards Point
Standings for Class 4A public
schools with 506 points.
Only Class 5A Tampa Plant
High (509.5) accrued a high-
er points total, among 650
high schools in the state, fol-

Boys athletics at Nease are
ranked No. 1 in the state in
4A with 251 points. Girls ath-
letics are ranked second in

4A with 255 points.
The fall point standings
don't reflect two recent state
titles by Nease in boys and
girls soccer.
The FHSAA awards points
based on a school's finish in
state series competition. For
instance, 100 points are
awarded for state champions
and 90 for state runners-up.
Schools are awarded five
bonus points per sport for
winning a district or regional
When the additional 200-
plus points from soccer are,
added to Nease's overall
points total this spring, the
Panthers will have amassed a
school-record 700-plus all-
sports points.
Nease's previous best all-
sports points tally was 434 in
2002. The school competed
in the 3A classification that
school year. Classifications

'You're the mom turn off TV'

Cute characters
used to create

new consumers

The topic at the Ponte
Vedra Beach Branch Library
was the often-insidious lure of
the electronic media for
young children.
While New York. author
Susan G. Thomas spoke on
the issue to several mothers,
grandmothers and nannys
Wednesday, some of their
young charges gravitated to a
nearbylarea aea and into chairs in
front of blank computer
"All they want to do is sit at
the computer," Amy Cornett
said, lamenting that the

library's book shelves don't
attract children as they did in
the past.
- "Yeah, I wish they weren't
here," Jennifer Price-
Easterling said about the com-
puters in the children's area of
the library.
Thomas, author of "Buy,
Buy Baby How Consumer
Culture Manipulates Parents
and Harms Young Minds,"
told the mothers that easy
access to the computers
makes their jobs harder.
"If they're right out here,.
you can't compete with that,"
Thomas said.
A mother of two young *
children, Thomas said hers is
the first generation of moth-
ers not to consult their own
mothers on questions of
Instead, they consult other
mothers and books, and often
turn to so-called "education-

al" television programs and
videos such as Baby Einstein
products because the mothers
believe they can help a child
learn, she said.
But much of that program-
ming is geared toward making
the child a lifetime consumer,
which could be worth "a cou-
ple hundred thousand dol-
lars" to a merchandiser,
Thomas said.
Children up to age 3 are
most vulnerable to shows
with central characters whose
images end up on products.
"They can't separate out...
the difference between mar-
keting and happiness,"
Thomas said
"The more times your child
is going to encounter a
licensed character," she said,
"the deeper they have you"

Nease High English
teacher Kristin McGillin
said she was "oddly reti-
cent" Tuesday when she was
named top secondary
school rookie teacher for
the St. Johns County School
"I had this fantastic
momentary flash of
absolute elation, but then
an intehse feeling of 'give it
to someone else'," McGillin
said in an e-mail message
the day after she got the
award at the annual Teacher
of the Year banquet.
"I just think about how
incredibly hard it is for new
teachers, and the fact that
all the other nominees work
just as hard as I do and put
their whole self into their
work and care so much
about their students, so it
makes me feel almost like
no one person deserves to
'win'," she said.
McGillin, in her second
year of teaching, is success-
ful with both high achievers
and low performers, said
Principal Linda Thomson.
One high school adminis-
trator said McGillin is a
"natural" and another said
he had never worked with a
teacher who had excelled to
such heights so fast.
Although this is the 17th
annual celebration for
teachers of the year in St.

the first year the district'

teachers, those who have
taught three years or less.

Nocatee's tree standards

The Palm Valley-based band

rock legend Leon Russell at
Freebird Live! in Jacksonville
Beach. See Club Scene, B-4.

A request to cut the number of trees
on the road to Ponte Vedra High was
rejected Tuesday by the St. Johns
County Commission, which approved
a number of other cost-cutting meas-
ures for the school.
The St. Johns County School
District requested the changes to con-
struction standards for Davis Park
Road. Because the school is being
built on donated land in the develop-
ment of Nocatee, it falls under the
strict requirements of Nocatee, such
as planting a tree every 100 feet along
certain roads.
Davis Park Road, which extends
south from County Road 210, pro-
vides access to Davis Park, Ponte
Vedra High School, and Crosswater
Community Church.
The school and the church, which

recently changed its name from New
Beginnings Baptist Church, are cur-
rently under construction and are
scheduled to open in August and
October, respectively.
The School District's proposal to
lessen the requirements for sidewalks
and use a cheaper drainage system
was passed by commissioners in a 5-0
Before voting, however, they added
an amendment striking a request to
reduce the number of trees along the
road from the Davis Park entrance
south to the high school. The request
was for one tree every 150 feet. The St.
Johns County Planning and Zoning
Agency Feb. 7 recommended approval
of all but the tree request.
Tim Forson, executive director of
operations and facilities for the
School District, told commissioners
the requests were part of an effort to

Surviving rip currents
As spring approaches and
temperatures start to rise the
U.S. Coast Guard auxiliary
reminds beachgoers that such
currents can be extremely
dangerous, dragging swim-
mers away from the beach
and leading to death by
drowning when they attempt
to fight the current and
become exhausted.
According to the United
States Lifesaving Association
(USLA) rip currents cause
approximately 100 deaths
annually in the United States,
more than all other natural
hazard except heat and
floods. Over 80 percent of res-
cues by surf beach lifeguards
are due to rip currents -
totaling 18.000 lifeguard res-
cues a year.
To avoid and survive
rip currents
First and foremost learn
how to swim
Never swim alone.
Be cautious at all times,
especially when swimming at
unguarded beaches.
If in doubt, don't go out!
Whenever possible, swim
at a lifeguard protected beach.
Obey all instructions and
orders from lifeguards.
Don't fight the current.

Swim out of the current in a
direction following the shore-
line. When out of the current,
swim towards shore.
If you are unable to swim
out of the rip current, float or
calmly tread water. When out
of the current, swim towards
If you are unable to reach
shore, draw attention to your-
self: Face the shore, wave
your arms, and yell for help.
If you see someone in
trouble, get help from a life-
guard. If a lifeguard is not
available, have someone call
9-1-1. Throw the rip current
victim something that floats
and yell instructions on how
to escape. Remember, many
people drown trying to save
someone else from a rip cur-

Watch for swarms
"Termite season is upon us
and the FirstCoast area has
already had some swarming
activity," said John Cooksey,
chief operating officer and
entomologist at McCall.

The A.L. Lewis Arch, which stood on the Florida Memorial University campus when that tradition-
ally black, Baptist-based institution was located in St. Augustine, is being moved Saturday from
the southwest corner to the northeast corner of West King Street and Holmes Boulevard, about
two miles west of U.S. 1. The arch, the only remaining standing structure from the college when it
was in St. Augustine,will be restored and given signs explaining
the university's significance to African American history in Florida.
Founded in 1879 in Live Oak, Fla., the institution moved to St.
Augustine in 1918 and to its present location in Miami in 1968.
Saturday's move will allow for improvements to the intersection.

Developer envisions

'downtown' in Valley


Despite a vision of "down-
town Palm Valley" and a cer-
tificate of concurrency from
county planners, one of the
owners of the 8-acre Hixon
property on Canal Boulevard
west of Roscoe Boulevard said
he has "no plans to develop the

Association, Pete Legeza, part-
ner with Ponte Vedra Beach
Investments, said other part-

rather than proceed with
"As I stand here today, we
have no plans to develop the
area," he said at the Feb. 11
Legeza said he hopes that
will change, however, and said
he sees the area as a "down-
town Palm Valley."
"We're just trying to get our
entitlements in order," he said.
One of those entitlements
came Jan. 24, when the county
Concurrency Review
Committee granted a certifi-'
cate of concurrency for the
The certificate allows for the
construction of 20 townhomes

or condo units and 23,400
square feet of shopping center
Legeza said the units would
be two-story structures with
residential space on the second
floor and commercial space on
the first floor.
He said the project would be
a "live-work" concept, with
residents on the second floor
owning or working in the busi-
nesses below.
The concurrency certificate
is contingent upon Legeza's
obtaining permits for water
service from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, the approval of
construction and drainage
plans, and the payment of fees
for connection to central water
service to JEA.
Parking and road access
must also be provided for
before building, director of
growth management services
director Teresa Bishop said in a
telephone interview.
In order to see his vision to
completion, Legeza must con-
vince his partners to develop
the property instead of selling
it. The concurrency certificate
will expire in two years if con-
struction plans have not been

"Termites are visible during
swarm season, when clouds of
flying termites can occur both
indoors and outdoors."
Cooksey said based on the
warmer and wetter winter,
termite swarm season is
expected be more active than
in recent years.
"If an infestation is found
within the house (whether
that's in the crawlspace or a
wall), it's best to get three
estimates and then evaluate
what each company is offer-
ing in terms of both the treat-
ment and guarantee," said
Termites thrive in moist
conditions with plenty ,of
wood. The following tips can,
help to minimize your risk for
a termite infestation:
Keep gutters free of leaves
and otherndebris. Downspouts
must drain freely and away
from the house, at a distance
of at least 3 feet.
Do not keep wooden
items close to the house. For
example, firewood should be
stored away from the home.
Wood mulch can also attract
termites to the home.
Because termites need
only the width of a piece of
paper to access the house,
make sure that all entry
points, like cracks in the
foundation or utility open-
ings, are sealed. You should
also caulk windows and
doors, favorite stomping
grounds for termites.

*As a rule of thumb, moni-
tor those areas of the home
that are chronically damp or
where wood comes in contact
with the structure.
If you are constructing a
new home, ask the builder
about pretreatment options.

Pelicans gather together on the piers near the shrimp boats in
Mayport Fishing Village earlier this week. The picturesque scene
is what might be threatened by a cruise ship terminal, according
to members of the Mayport Civic Association, which has filed
suit against the Jax Port Authority and the city of Jacksonville to
block cruise ships coming to the historic village.

JB cuts New Year's bar hours to 2 a.m.

Council unaware only
JB bars open to 4 a.m.

Revelers ringing in the New
Year in Jacksonville Beach will
have a 2 a.m. last call now that
city officials are taking the steps
to repeal an exception that
allowed bars to serve alcohol
until 4 a.m. on New Year's Eve.
The Jacksonville Beach City
Council Monday voted unani-
mously to eliminate the section
of the special events ordinance
that extends the hours.
City Manager George Forbes
said he was surprised to learn
that the standard was still in
place in Jacksonville Beach, not-
ing that the city was the last in
the county with such a law on
the books.
"What that says is if you can't
get a drink any where else in the
county, come to Jacksonville
Beach," Forbes said. "That is not

what we are trying to become.
We have put a lot into becom-
ing a family community."
Councilman Rick Knight said
he rode along with police on
patrol last New Year's Eve and
could not believe what he saw.
"No one likes a beer better
than me. But there is no reason
to put our policemen through
two more hours," he said.
"I was shocked at what I wit-
nessed. If you ain't had enough
to drink by 2 a.m. you sure
don't have to by 4 a.m."
Knight said most of those he
observed celebrating were filter-
ing' out of the bars by 2 a.m.
anyway, when establishments
must cease the sale of alcohol.
"The ones that chose to stay
out until 4 a.m. are the ones
that you don't want to stay
out," he said.
Jacksonville Beach Police
Chief Bruce Thomason pro-
posed the repeal as a matter of
public safety.
"Alcohol-related calls for serv-

ice on New Year's Eve are histor-
ically higher than normal, and
those types of calls after 2 a.m.
continue at a substantially
increased rate above other times
in the year," he said in a Feb. 5
recommendation to Forbes.
"The extended hours attract
people for the intended purpose
of consuming alcohol, a situa-
tion that leads to increased
numbers of disturbances, fights
and DUIs. The best interests of
our community may be served if
the extended hours for alcohol
sales . are repealed."
Mayor Fland Sharp called the
first reading of the proposed
repeal a lesson in history. -He
said he was unaware that the
standard still existed.
"This is a carryover from the
second World War when it used
to be in the summer that they
would take the doors off the
hinges and go 24-7 until
Memorial Day when everyone
would go back to Jacksonville.

Partnership opposes a cruise ship

A resolution opposing a
proposed cruise terminal in
Mayport Fishing Village
Tuesday was passed at a
Mayport Waterfront
Partnership meeting.
The partnership previously
decided not to take a formal
position regarding a
Jacksonville Port Authority
proposal for a cruise terminal
until it heard more informa-
tion from JPA at a community
meeting held last month.
Some members of the part-
nership said they were not
satisfied with the community
meeting in which JPA officials

explained the proposal and
answered questions, describ-
ing it as a "dog and pony
"Well, we've all had a
month to think about it and I
don't think some of us needed
that long," said partnership
member Homer Hull, who
drafted the resolution.
The resolution expresses the
partnership's opposition to
the proposed terminal as well
as any proposed future appli-
cations for. a land use amend-
ment or rezoning that would
allow similar uses, according
to the resolution.
It also stated that a cruise
terminal is a "too intense use

"It is about time that this

Shame on me for not knowing."

Letters to the editor:

Support for race was great to see

To the editor:
After eight months of train-
ing and preparing for the 26.2
with Donna The National
Marathon to Fight Breast
Cancer I felt confident this
event would exceed everyone's
expectations. The vision of a
successful, "elite", international
marathon had only one piece
necessary to fulfill its potential.
How would the local beach
communities respond?
Sunday morning, February
17, my responsibility was to
pace runners interested in fin-
ishing the marathon within a
time of 4:15 or better. Words
cannot explain .the emotions
that I felt racing through my
Beaches neighborhood streets
connected to runners, volun-
teers and spectators. Every turn,
every water station, every
stretch of road the runners were
met with SOOO MUCH encour-

agement and enthusiasm. The
group I led came from all across
the United States. I tried to put
myself in their place as they
experienced our incredible local
hospitality. On Sunday I ran
with a sense of place and deep
regard for everyone that took
time out of their morning to
selflessly cheer on thousands of
strangers past their front yards
and alongside their businesses.
I was overwhelmed by your
support on Sunday and all I can
say is thank you. The difference
you made in the hearts and
minds of ALL the participants
was monumental! Planning
and preparation for next year
has already begun and I can't
wait! I guarantee runners from
all over the world feel the same

Race was memorable experience

To the editor:
Thank You!
To my neighbors on Duval
Drive and the surrounding
Hats off and THANKS for
making the Breast Cancer

Marathon Run a huge success.
Your support, water hoses; and
cheers made this a very memo-
rable experience.
Thanks again!

Thanks to all who back the band

To the editor:
A huge Thank-You to all that
have donated both personally
and as part of an organization
to the Fletcher High School
Band Trip to Washington, D.C.
We are almost there with the
fundraising effort.
After reading the article in
The Leader on February 20, I
felt the need to respond. It has
been said many times that this
is "a once in a lifetime trip."
What does that mean? As a
band parent for many years
and a member of the FHS Band
Booster Board I would like to
explain why this is not "just a
band trip". As has been men-
tioned, the band works very
hard all year long. They attend
summer band camp for 2-3
weeks, 5 days a week, in the
hot sun, to prepare for the
upcoming year. This is only
the beginning. They are
required to perform at all of
the football games, perform-
ances and competitions. This
requires training and disci-
pline. A typical band student
knows that his/her life is
monopolized by the time it

takes to build a successful pro-
gram and they love it. As was.
mentioned in the article, they
are a family.
This trip to Washington D.C
is a reward of sorts for their
dedication and time. But most
importantly, it will be an
event in their life that they,
may never have again. Every
year there is a band trip. The
student's generally pay for
their own trip, perhaps per-
form one or two times and
have a great time. This trip
will require training. They are
required to march in a parade
with an expected 400,000 peo-
ple in..110 degree heatuu% to
the crowds. During thie,week
they, are there, they are partic-
ipating with other bands .in
guided educational tours.
What a fabulous way to show
these students what it means
to be part of a specially chosen
few and what it means to
march in a National
Independence Day Parade.

Club investors need some answers

To the editor.
The purpose of this email is to
echo the sentiments of previous
communications regarding the
exorbitant price increase in
dues [at the Cabana Club].
If we are expected to pay for
renovations as pitched by man-
agement, I'd like to see a break-
down of costs for contractor
services and new items...furni-
ture etc... We have obviously
become investors in the build-
ing of the property and I believe
it's important to see a break-
down as I would with anything

I'm purchasing. Who participat-
ed in the renovation bidding
process? Who performed the
financial analysis to determine
the increase? An 80 percent
increase is obnoxious. How
much is the Marriott absorbing?
What is the mission statement
of the Sawgrass Marriott? What
is the Vision? Shouldn't the
dues be drastically reduced next
year after the renovations? A
timely response to these queries
would be greatly appreciated.

More letters to the editor:

Refreshing to hear that so many young

people will represent the Beaches well

To the editor:
Thank you to The Beaches
Leader and Liza Mitchell for
their coverage of our fundrais-
ing efforts on the road to
Washington, D.C. With the
pledge from the Jacksonville
Beach City Council, we are one
step closer to our goal of
$50,000. However, in reading
the article "JB antes up for
Fletcher Band Trip" in the
February 20edition, there are a
couple of misconceptions that
need to be corrected.
First, none of the chaperones
are accompanying the band
students at a reduced price or
free of charge. Each chaperone
has paid the same out-of-
pocket financial contribution
as the students have paid of
$110. Further, each of these
chaperones has volunteered
countless hours during Friday
night football in the stands-
with the- students; in the con-
cession stands at home games;
during marching competitions
riding buses that, leave on a
Saturday morning at 8:00 am
(after being in the concession
stand until 11:00pm the night
before) and not arriving home
until early Sunday morning;
selling Krispy Kreme donuts at
6:30am before school starts to
raise money; marching parade
routes during Homecoming
and Opening of the Beaches
parades and being there during
any other activity at which
one of the FHS band ensembles
may appear. Having said this,
none of thi, volunteer time
even comes close to the
amount of time that our band
students and Jonathan Maerki,
band director, commit towards
making the Fletcher High
School Band the superior pro-

gram that it is today. A pro-
gram that was deemed worthy
of being chosen as the official
State of Florida representative
at the National Independence
Day Parade after being nomi-
nated by Mayor John Peyton.
While it is true that the band
has received 4 complimentary
chaperone trips as part of the
tour package, the savings asso-
ciated with these "free" _trips
has been spread among all of
the students and chaperones
attending the parade. Each
person traveling to
Washington, DC has the same
cost per trip. Should our
fundraising goal not be
reached, each attendee
whether a student or a chaper-
one will be responsible for pay-
ing the difference in order to
be able to attend.
Unfortunately, this may mean
that some students who can-
not afford to pay any extra will
be left out of the trip if this
indeed becomes the case. The
Band. Boosters Association is
working extremely hard to
make this sure that this does
not happen.
Second, Councilman
Knight's concerns of funding
students who live outside the
Beaches city limits are not
valid. Funding has been
requested from all of the cities
in which our. students reside.
Neptune Beach and
Jacksonville Beach have
already responded positively.
Atlantic Beach and the City of
Jacksonville (via the Children's
Commission) have been
approached and we fully
expect funds from these cities
to be forthcoming. In addi-
tion, the athletic department
and the PTSA of Fletcher High

School have already made
pledges of funds towards the
cost of getting our band to
D.C. The Holiday
Extravaganza held in
December, 2007 with perform-
ances by the entire fine arts
department of Fletcher benefit-
ted the band's fundraising
efforts. The Fletcher High
School Marching Senator Band
is representing not only the
three Beaches Communities
and Jacksonville, but also all
FHS students, current and
alumni, at the National
Independence Day parade.
Isn't it only fair that all share
in the cost of this opportunity?
In today's times of news
about students who are getting
into trouble or failing school,
isn't it refreshing to hear about
a group of young people who
are doing something good?
Our students are spending
hours in rehearsals in addition
to keeping up with their
schoolwork to represent them-
selves and our, community in a
positive manner., As Jean Fust,
so eloquently put it at the
meeting on Monday night, the
FHS band students will be in
Washington, D.C. for you.
Will you be there for them?

Embrace the race it made us all proud

To the editor:
The first marathon to fight
breast cancer at the Beaches last
weekend was well organized by
almost any standard that run-
ners consider important. The
race expo had countless deals
on shoes and running gear, the
course was relatively flat and
shady and there were plenty of
water stops and porta-johns
along the course. A hearty well-
done to Donna. Deegan, the
Special Events staff from the
City of Jacksonville, and all the
other face organizers.
However, the hot conditions
may have left some of our
northern visitors with bad
memories except for one impor-
tant factor; community sup-
port. The turnout and enthusi-
asm of the people along the
course was absolutely phenom-
enal! People were ringing cow
bells and yelling encourage-

ment for almost the entire dis-
tance, particularly in Atlantic
Beach. There were more "unof-
ficial" water stops than official
ones. There was more sidewalk
chalk proclaiming "go Mom" or
"you rock" then most of us had
time to read. Little kids were
hoping the next runner would
take the orange slice from their
hand. Delayed drivers parked
their cars, got out and cheered
along with everyone else.
Dozens of people with hoses
offered to shower overheated
runners (especially appreciated
on a hot day), and so on.
Sure, many may have
embraced the noble cause of
fighting breast cancer more
than they did the runners them-
selves. It would be impossible
for any of us ."locals" to have
watched Donna Deegan's coura-
geous fight against cancer in
recent years without wanting to

help. However, the runners felt
like the home team running
onto the field at a college foot-
ball game.
We often brag about how
great it is to live at the beach.
How much of that is normal
hometown pride versus having
something really special? After
running a lot of other
marathons in places like
Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Hartf6rd,
Boston, Houston, Chicago and
Washington DC, I can assure
you that the level of support
this last weekend went way
beyond what any runner could
hope for, especially for a first
time event. You really did
"Embrace the Race". I have
never been more proud to live
at the beaches. Thanks to all
who came out.

Florida has never learned to live within a budget

To the editor:
My entire life my parents
taught me to manage my
money properly. They showed
me how to live within a budget
and how to avoid spending
money on every little trinket
that I wanted. Shouldn't our
state and local governments
have to live up to the same
They apparently haven't
been as Florida taxes are cur-
rently at an all time high! They
spend so much money and
when we are given a chance to
lower our taxes the bureaucrats
just find somewhere else to

raise them. Like me, you might
be asking yourself, how can we
put a stop to this?
Currently the TBRC, the
Taxation and Budget Reform
Committee, is meeting as they
do every 20 years, with the
ability to put any issue they
want and put it on the ballot.
One of the issues they are con-
sidering is a Taxpayer
Protection Amendment. This
would limit the expansion of
state and local government
spending by population
growth and inflation. On top
of that, if the government
wanted to raise extra money

for a pet project WE THE PEO-
PLE have to give approval at
the ballot box. When a similar
amendment was put in place in
Colorado they saw a huge
increase in jobs and saw eco-
nomic development skyrocket
like never before!
If this amendment is put on
the 2008 ballot, we must vote
yes! Who wouldn't want take
this golden opportunity to
teach our government fiscal
responsibility as our parents
lovingly did for us.

to the


City owes




To the editor:
Now that Wal-Mart has
said they're dropping their
plans to build a Super Center
in NB, Lakeshore's Attorney
Steven C. Bullock, asks
Mayor Brown for a "Showing
of Good Faith" by granting
his client a 6 month exten-
sion of the Final
Development Order issued
in the Settlement Agreement
that the city was pretty
much forced to accept.
Mr. Bullock points out in
his letter that Lakeshore "has
requested Wal-Mart to
rescind its Notice of
Termination on various legal
grounds" and that hopefully
they can come to terms for a
final resolution in 30 days.
He also contends "that it
would be in the best interest
of all parties" and that "there
would be no prejudice nor
harm to the city in granting
the extension".
Talk about audacity, this is
the same Mr. Bullock who in
July of 2006 threatened to
sue the city for 50 million
dollars if they didn't get their
way. His threat came after
Wal-Mart's attorney Karl
Sanders made a similar
Threat in June. Now, almost
two years later after waltzing
NB around the floor, the big
Sand., little bullies are .,at, it,
: gain and: L have to wr0 ndei:'
just whose best interest is at
stake and what's really going
Was Lakeshore so naive
they entered intoan an agree-
ment with Wal-Mart that
gai them no financial relief
if Wal-Mart broke the deal?
Are they both running some
contentious game at the
expense and wasted time of
our city, solely for their own
self interest and betterment?
Perhaps Lakeshore wants the
delay so they can find some
other tenant who may or
may not want to provide the
same building design, .plans,
specifications and conces-
sions the city agreed to with
Wal-Mart. Or, could they be
trying to sell the building to
Wal-Mart or some other enti-
ty and increase the sale value
by having a Free
Development Ordered card
Who knows, but it is easy
to see there are too many
unanswered questions
involved in this fiasco to
dance to their tune when the
city is under no legal obliga-
tion to bend over for these
bullies. Hopefully council
will say no even though
some may say they are being
unfair to business and that
we desperately need the tax
Those inclined to do so
need to realize NB's sales tax
income is the same whether
they spend their money
across the ditch or spend it
here and the $23,454.00
property tax revenue from
Lakeshore's building is the
same whether it is occupied
or empty. Doubling that
property's value would only
generate about $3.35 a year
for each of our 7000 resi-
dents and I don't think that
would increase our quality of
life very much.
Council should hold the
line on this issue and then
reasonably expect the
Lakeshore folks in the future
to come .up with visually
attractive design, housing
Businesses that provide
goods and services we need
and desire, without rescind-
ing our 60,000Q sq ft ordi-

nance because some mer-
chant wants to occupy more
space than our code now
allows. We really don't need
to be the door mat of devel-
opers or lawyers to encour-
age new businesses!

Nease High students who use
the bus to get to school were
greeted with a K-9 dog "sniff
search" of their backpacks as
they arrived at school
Wednesday, police said.
Out of the 317 students who
rode the bus and had their
backpacks searched, K-9 units
singled out two items during
the operation, which was
dubbed "Operation Bus Loop".
Upon a thorough, search,
"neither student had any type
of contraband on them,"
according to the police report.

Nease High Principal Linda
Thomson said it is common to
use K-9 dogs to search for drugs
in classrooms and other areas
on campus. She said it is done
about once a month at Nease.
"It's like preventative main-
tenance. It's something you do
every so often," she said.
"If kids are aware this is rou-
tine procedure," they're less
likely to bring illegal sub-
stances to school, Thomson
said Thursday in a telephone
The school's youth resource
officer, Andy Thornton, said
Wednesday's operation dif-
fered from regular searches

because it focused solely on
students who ride the bus, and
because the students arrived on
campus at 10 a.m. because it
was a late-start day at Nease.
"We usually go into the
classrooms [for dog searches],"
Thornton said.
He added that the K-9s are
trained to detect the odors of
illicit substances, not the pres-
ence of the substances.
Because the dogs can detect
the odor of opiates and
amphetamines found in pre-
scription drugs, K-9s could be
alerted to backpacks and items
that have been in contact with
drugs, he said.

resources on schools.
The School District must pay
for about 71 percent of the
costs for Davis Park Road, with
the Parc Group, master devel-
oper of Nocatee, and
Crosswater each paying about
14.5 percent.
"The cost savings [of the
trees] could be in the range of
$40,000 to $50,000," Forson
told commissioners.
Commission chair Tom

Manuel did not seem
impressed by that savings.
"We're really talking about a
very small amount of money
for a high school that is cost-
ing about $60 million," he
said. "I would prefer not to

munity that has a very high

Nease baseball drubbed by Fletcher


It might not have been the
catch that won a state cham-
pionship, but Fletcher High
head baseball coach Kevin
Brown sounded equally excit-
ed about it.
Brown was more than
thrilled about
the over-the- su
shoulder catch
Tanner Gregg
made in the
top of the
sixth inning,
saving the
Senators. from
giving up a
possible run en
route a
blowout 11-0
victory over Beaches rival
Nease High.
"Was that an unbelievable
catch?" Brown said following
the game. "Tanner Gregg, just
an unbelievable catch. He
does that all the time."
Fletcher (4-0) easily handled
Nease (1-3) Tuesday night in a
game that was rescheduled
from Monday afternoon due
to weather.
The Senators broke open a

scoreless game with a four-run
second inning, led by Sean
Brown's two-run triple.
Brown, whose hit scored
Scott Sitz and James Dillon,
came home on a single from
Houston Brown, who would
go on to score on a Ryan
Mahoney single.
"We hit the ball good
tonight," Kevin
.: -.-r ., Brown said.
Q, ; "We were hitting
the ball, we put
the ball in play
and made some
: things happen.
It's just situa-
tional hitting.
"The entire
bottom of the
lineup did great.
Everyone got
hits, they all put
the ball in play and we got
some runs out if it."
The Panthers took advan-
tage of Fletcher's pitching
woes, first turning things
around in the fifth inning
when Ryan Martin scored on
Justin McKenna's single, giv-
ing Nease its first run of the
Fletcher got that run back
in the bottom of the inning
when Sitz hit a double that

sent Trevor Adeeb home.
With Fletcher leading 5-1,
the Panthers looked to stage a
comeback. Brett Russi opened
the sixth inning with a single
and advanced to second when
Tyler Barlow was walked.
Jared MacNaught then
ripped a long fly ball to deep
centerfield, where Gregg
tracked it down and made the
spectacular catch and throw,
doubling up Russi at second
base for the final out of the.
The Senators opened the
bottom of the sixth hitting
everything Nease pitcher Will
Haga threw. Sean Brown.
opened the inning with a sin-
gle and was followed by
Houston Brown and Gregg, to
load the bases.
Johnny Williams' two-run
single made it 7-1 with no
outs. Mahoney followed with
another single, sending home
Gregg. Adeeb ripped a two-
run double to the outfield,
bringing the score to 10-1
while Nease had still failed to
record an out.
Sitz hit a long fly ball that
.left Adeeb enough time to
score on a sacrifice fly, ending
the game by the 10-point

Panthers starting pitcher Will Haga fires to the plate Tuesday at Fletcher High. The Senators
earned an 11-1 mercy rule victory in six innings of play.

"Fletcher came out and put
some pressure on us and we
didn't make all the plays out
there," Nease first-year head
coach Travis Chapman said.
"Fletcher is a pretty good
baseball team. They threw

Fletcher played very well.
They didn't give us any
breaks. They showed tonight
they were the better
Sitz led Fletcher at the
plate, batting 3-for-4
with a double and a run

Mahoney and
Houston Brown each
recorded two hits in the
game, with Mahoney
scoring a run and driv-
ing in two more, while
Brown scored twice and
drove in a run.
Adeeb, Dillon, Sean
Brown, Gregg and
Johnny Williams each
had a hit for Fletcher.
For Nease,
MacNaught, McKenna,
Russi, C.J. Thompson,
Justin James and Mike
Mantia all recorded hits.

efforts at the plate, the
team struggled on the
mound, going through
S t h ree pitchers and giving
up six free passes in the
"We just walked to
many people tonight,
pitching-wise," Kevin
Brown said. "We need to
work on that.
"This was a non-con-
ference, non-district
game, so I'm going to do
some things with the
pitching rather than
leave one guy in there.
The young guys did
good, they had some
tight moments, but we
just walked too many.
Brown was noticeably
frustrated with the
pitching at times in the
NGELO game and he and catch-
er Cory Franklin made
numerous visits to the

mound throughout the con-
"It's a lot of walks," Brown
said. "Any coach in his right
state of mind would get frus-
trated. You can't have that
many walks, it's just unaccept-

pitchers some credit for their
"To the pitchers' credit,
they got themselves into bad
spot and got themselves out
of it," Brown said. "They
worked hard, but they worked
harder than they should
Fletcher headed to
Gainesville to face defending
district champions Buchholz
Thursday then returns home
tonight to face the Bobcats
again to conclude the home
and home series.
The Senators placed runner-
up in the district last season
to Buchholz.
"They are huge," Brown
said of the district rivals. This
will be a huge game."
Nejse, which opened, its dis-
trict schedule with a 9-6 win
over St. Augustine last Friday
was scheduled to face
Matanzas Thursday.
"We'll just have to go play a
great game," Chapman said,
"and play some defense."

Nease 10, Matanzas 2
The Panthers raised their
season mark to 4-1 with
Tuesday's win at home.
Amanda Smith improved to
2-0 on the hill for Nease,
allowing just four hits in a
complete-game victory.
Offensively, the Panthers
were led by Kristen Mantia,
who doubled, tripled and
drive in a pair of runs. Steffani
Hosch also drove in two runs
with a pair of doubles and
Clare Wamsley smaked a two-
run double as Nease posted a
five-run second inning.
Nease is 2-0 in district play.

Ospreys to face some of nation's top teams

Head coach Dusty Rhodes knows his
University of North Florida baseball program
team is still a few years away from being eligible
for NCAA Division I postseason play.
So Rhodes, UNF's first and only yard boss since
the program's inception in 1988, has turned a
negative into a positive by scheduling Super
Regional-caliber opponents this season.
On tap this season are rematches with peren-
nial in-state powers Miami (May 13), Florida
(April 2, 8 and 9) and Florida State (April 16)
along with first-time meetings against 2007
World Series participants North Carolina (May 6-
7) and Mississippi State (today though Sunday).
"Because we can't go to the postseason [until
2010], we promised our guys that we would play
the best teams in the country," Rhodes said this
week from Harmon Stadium.
"We wanted to play all the Division I teams in
the state of Florida and we're close to that."
Besides the big three, INF will take on South
Florida, Central Florida and Florida
International. It also will renew acquaintances
with Atlantic Sun Conference foes Stetson and
Jacksonville universities.
The Ospreys (24-32 in 2007) open their 21st
season on the diamond this weekend by hosting
a tripleheader with Mississippi State (38-22 in
The teams square off today at 5 p.m. at the
Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, before facing
each other at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at UNF.
It will be the first meeting between the two
clubs, but not the first time Rhodes and Bulldogs
coach Ron Polk have exchanged handshakes.
"I've known Ron Polk for over 30 years," said
Rhodes, who was a player and an assistant coach
at Florida Southern College in the early 1970s
when Polk was an assistant coach at Miami-Dade

and third for the UNF Ospreys this season.
South Community College.
Rhodes said he and Polk have talked about
playing each other for years and finally got it
The Ospreys hope to return the favor next sea-
son by traveling to Starkville, Miss.
"We couldn't schedule [UNF] when it was in
Division II," said Polk in a phone interview this

"I'm anxious to see Dusty's ball park."
Polk is in his second stint as the Bulldogs skip-
per and 29th overall. He led MSU to a No. 8 final
ranking last season and has guided three differ-
ent schools to the College World Series.
Rhodes has led the Ospreys to World Series
berths at the NAIA and NCAA D-II levels. The
Ospreys were the D-II runners-up in 2005.
UNF is in the third season of a four-year reclas-
sification period and is not eligible to earn a
berth in its conference tournament until 2010.
The winner of the A-Sun tourney earns an
automatic berth to the NCAA regionals.
UNF finished second in the A-Sun regular-sea-
son standings in 2Q06 and sixth overall last sea-
In the absence of postseason play, Rhodes
intends to do what he has always done: Put the
best product he can on the field and let the
record speak for itself.
"We've kind of been a diamond in the rough,"
said Rhodes, who has more than 1,100 wins in 20
years at UNF.
"People couldn't take us lightly, no matter
what level we were."
"I know they are aggressive and well-coached,"
said Polk, the legendary skipper of a storied
Bulldogs program that dates to 1892 and boasts
more than 5,500 season ticket holders this season.
"We've got all our pitching back, but we lost a
lot of key players off that World Series team. So,
we're a young ball club in that regard."
Rhodes returns a young, but battle-tested team
that will also rely on pitching depth. The Ospreys
had 14 freshmen last season and all will see con-
siderable playing time this year.
"We could start a whole sophomore team if we
had to," said Rhodes, who returns three players
who were named to the A-Sun All-Freshmen
The Beaches area will be well represented in
the lineup in the form of senior Andy Warren

and freshman Sam Perry.
Warren, a 2002 Nease High graduate, will play
first and third, while Perry, a 2007 Fletcher High
alum, will back up senior Chad Knight at short-
"Andy struggled with the bat last season, but
he's been hitting the ball now," said Rhodes.
"And Perry is better than we thought he was.
He'll be like those freshmen last year. He'll play a
lot until we can move him into a starting posi-
tion." "
Former Fletcher High and FCCJ transfer David
Eldredge has been redshirted this season.
Former Providence star Travis Martin is back
for his senior season and may be the most versa-
tile player in Osprey baseball history.
Martin, UNF's designated hitter with a .302
career average, can pitch, play first base and even
sub in outfield if need be.
"The only thing he can't do is run real well,"
said Rhodes about Martin, who was 2-3 on the
mound last season.
"He's in the best playing shape that I've ever
seen him. He can pitch and still DH, or bat and
still pitch in relief."
Last year, UNF took its lumps early, then fin-
ished strong down the stretch with road victories
against Miami and Florida and a best-of-three
series triumph over eventual A-Sun tournament
champion and regional-qualifier JU.
Polk's Bulldogs bounced back from an 0-2 fin-
ish in the SEC tourney to reach Omaha as an
NCAA at-large team.
He and Rhodes both agree that it's all about
how you play at the end of the season, not at the
"This league will wear you out," said Polk
about the SEC.
"You have to make a run at the end."
Added Rhodes: "We were overmatched early,
but by the end of last season we were playing
with anybody."

Science seeks to harness energy of human movement

For some time, I have won-
dered about a way to har-
vest the energy expended
at a health club. Just picture
your mind when you walk
into the YMCA all those
people powering the bicycles,
the elliptical trainers, and
pushing and pulling the
Nautilus equipment.
That is a lot of energy that
could be used to power the tel-

the energy, and then donate it

Walk and Talk
If you could power your cell
phone simply by wearing a
special knee brace, would you?
Researchers from the
University of Pittsburgh and
the University of Michigan

have come up with just such a
device. The brace was designed
to assist an injured person
with walking, but the develop-
ers quickly realized that it had
other applications.
As the braced knee moves
back and forth, energy is creat-
ed and the brace transfers it
into a generator which can
then be attached to an elec-
tronic device. Researchers
showed that simply walking
for one minute could power a
phone for ten minutes.

Wear Your Power Shirt
Researchers from Emory
University and Georgia Tech
are also at work developing
"power shirt" able to generate
electricity to power small elec-
tronic devices for soldiers in
the field, hikers and others
whose physical motion could
be harnessed and converted to
electrical energy.

Scott takes BFAS on road today

John Scott, organist and
director of the renowned
choir of men and boys in
New York City, gives his first
Beaches Fine Arts Series
(BFAS) concert at 7:30 p.m.
The concert is being held
at St. John's Episcopal
Cathedral, 256 E. Church St.,
Jacksonville, where the organr
has recently undergone an
upgrade, said Kathy Wallis,
executive director of the
Beaches Fine Arts Series.
"The cathedral organ has
been recently restored and
enlarged," Wallis said in a
telephone interview this
Scott, 51, "one of the fore-
most organists in the world,"
Wallis said, is organist and
director of music at Saint
Thomas Church on Fifth
Avenue in New York City.
Before moving to New York
in 2004, he spent 26 years at
St. Paul's Cathedral in
London, where he began as

Organist John Scott
assistant organist and soon
became sub-organist.
In 1990 Scott succeeded Dr

Christopher Dearnley as
organist and music director,
training and directing the
choir and overseeing the
development of the cathe-
dral's music program.
Under his direction, the St
Paul's Cathedral Choir
toured extensively in Europe,
Japan, and North and South
America, made many widely
acclaimed recordings,
worked with a number of dis-
tinguished orchestras and
ensembles and gave world
premieres of works commis-
sioned especially for them.
Scott's career as a recitalist
has taken him to five conti-
nents. His many recordings
include the organ sonatas of
Elgar, organ music by
William Mathias, the com-
plete organ works of Durufl6
and Mendelssohn, as well as
two discs of music by Dupr6.
Scott's performance this
evening, which is free, will
include works by Handel,
Bach, Mathias and Grainger.
Doors open at at 6:45 p.m.,
and seating is on a first-

come, first-served basis.
Scott's concert is one of
two in the fine arts series
that will be held in
Jacksonville this season,
Wallis said.
The normal venue is St.
Paul's By the Sea Episcopal
Church in Jacksonville
Beach, but it was unclear at
the time she booked Scott
whether St. Paul's organ
would be out of service,
Wallis said.
The organ at St. Paul's is
scheduled to have its reeds
redone, she said.
Next month, BFAS brings a
new performer to the series,
Wallis said ,Tomaseen
Foley, a native Irish story-
teller whose performance
also includes a "world-cham-
pion Irish dancer," a singer
and some musical instru-
ments, she said.
The concert is set for 7:30
p.m. Friday, March 14 at St.
Paul's in Jacksonville Beach.
Photographer Amandine
Benomar is the visual artist
for today's performance.

Movie tie-in

books boost


Movie tie-in books may
seem like a cheap and shame-
less way to repackage a one-
time best seller, but they
undoubtedly spark new copy
sales- and boost readership,
industry analysts say.
Take, for instance, "No
Country For Old Men"
(Vintage Books, $14.)
The 2005 best seller by
Pulitzer Prize-winning author
Cormac McCarthy is the basis
for an Oscar-nominated film
of the same name.
Sales of the dark crime
novel, adapted for the screen
by Ethan and Joel Coen, have
spiked in recent months, due
in large part to its movie tie-
in edition, which features a
glossy still from the film on
its jacket cover.
McCarthy, once dubbed the
"Shakespeare of the West,"
has. been -adapted for the
screen before ("All the Pretty
Much of the clipped dia-
logue in his book made its
way to the screen, including
the film's signature phrase,
"It's a mess, ain't it sheriff? If
it ain't it'll do til a mess gets
But .there are interesting
subtexts in the book that the
Coens couldn't cook down
into a tight screenplay, such
as the backstory of disillu-
sioned Sheriff Ed Tom Bell
(Tommy Lee Jones), a Bronze
Star recipient in World War II
with a wartime secret.
Welder-turned thief
Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin),
who served two tours of duty
in Vietnam as an Army sniper,
has a touching, albeit brief,
relationship with a teenage
Bell has an equally moving
encounter with Moss's father
at book's end.
And Bell's relationship with
his own father, hinted at in
the film's final scene, can
only be fully understood -
and appreciated by reading
McCarthy's subtle prose.
"My daddy always told me
to just do the best you knew
how and tell the truth,", the
character says in the book.
"He said there was nothing
to set a man's mind at ease
like wakin up in the morning
and not havin to decide who
you are."
Truth is a major theme in
"No Country for Old Men,"
and "you can't corrupt it,"
the book says, "any more
than you can salt salt."

Name:Bran takes shape

Brandon Flores knows a
thing or two about marketing.
As a former solo artist per-
forming as Name:Bran, he has
an innate understanding that
image as everything
The 26-year-old rapper and
musician developed a solid
reputation as a skilled rapper, a
born lyricist and an overall
nice guy that blurred the edges
of the typical hip hop scene.
Name:Bran is still distinctly
Flores with an full band sound
delivered by guitarist Justin
Watson, drummer Brett Livsey
and DJ Import.

The band with artists Shawn
Fisher, Robin Banks, Always
Autumn and Bury Me Standing
will perform a benefit concert
for the I.M. Sulzbacher Center
for the Homeless Friday, Feb.
29, at Freebird Live, 200 1st
Street N., Jacksonville Beach.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
Admission is $10 and all pro-
ceeds will go directly to the
center to help the homeless.
It was after a benefit last
November at the University of
North Florida that the idea of
an expanded band began to
take shape.
"I have always been a rapper
but I listened to lots of differ-
ent music," Flores said in an

interview Wednesday. "I was
having issues with rap because
there are so many boundaries.
It is so limiting. This gives us
an opportunity to broaden
what hip hop is."
Flores was rapping freestyle
with the acoustic backing of
other musicians that also
played the bill. The sound eas-
ily and effortlessly became the
framework of the rock-rap style
that continues to evolve.
Watson and Livsey quickly
signed on after being intro-
duced to Flores. They recog-
nized his talents and were

Livsey said. "People appreciate
Brandon. he is familiar to a lot

Flores is quick to defend his
choice to branch out. The
approach is different but his
lyrics and message are still the
same positive flow he devel-

"We have definitely main-

said. "Npthing has changed in
how the lyrics are constructed.
It has more of a rock feel but in

Your child may have 20/20 eyesight
but 0/0 vision, The difference is critical.
Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see,
Vision is the ability to identify, interpret,
comprehend, and act on what is seen, .
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most( c,,c ,,
measure eyesight. They do not include
J e.s .the kinds of testing that can find visually
h\ related learning problems.
Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat
vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
UInable to sit still; cannot stay on task for any
length of time.
Very clumtsytpoor eye.-hand coordination.
Does written work very slowly; often fails to
complete a task.
SHlas difficulty copying 'visual material:
constantly looks up and down,
Moves entire head instead of eyes when
Reversaltsor example confusing thle words
was and saw" or letters "b and d".
Is disorganized and frLstruated when studying
visual intfrmatl ion. .
Makes i(1equent, "careless" errors. ...
If your son or daughter, age 7-18, tas one or more of these behaviors, call
246-1952 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems.
It could be the most important phone call you will make during hislher school years.

Name: Buddy
Age: 7 years old
Gender: male
Breed: miniature dashshund
Coloring: red
Residence: Ponte Vedra

Owners: Vicki and Paul
Favorite pastime: "rassling"
with the Hoffman's other dog

U unleashed:
Vicki adopted Buddy from the Humane Society 4 years ago. He
was missing a leg and faced a very uncertain future. For 4
years he would have play dates with Vicki's fiance's Golden
Retriever, Harper, and Jack Russell, Tater. Buddy and Tater love
to "rassle" and run through the house, and Harper simply toler-
ates both of them. Since moving in together, Harper and Tater
have taught Buddy to howl. They all three sit at the window and
howl at whoever walks by. The photo above won Buddy a spot in
the Humane Society's 2008 Furry Face Calendar.

Constantly in search

of something different

As we sample a lot of dif-
ferent wines in our busi-
ness of writing a column
each week, we are in constant
search for something different.
Perhaps it is an interesting
blend, an unusual grape vari-
ety or a region that has eluded
If you are tired of the same
old chardonnay or merlot, it's
time for change. These wines
are great to introduce to
guests as a gift or to share. We
have tried to keep them rea-
sonably priced.
Chateau La Paws Cote du
Bone Roan 2005 ($14). Kent
Rosenblum is a practicing vet-
erinarian who started this spe-
cial label to raise money to
help train assistance dogs for
people with disabilities. So not
only is the wine good for Paws
With a Cause, but it's just
good. This tasty syrah with
strawberry and cherry notes is
blended with bits of zinfandel,
mourvedre and carignane.
The white version Cote du
Bone Blanc 2005 ($14) is a
blend of chardonnay, sauvi-
gnon blanc, viognier, rous-
sanne and marsanne. Very
good wines for a great cause.
Duckhorn Vineyards
Decoy Napa Valley Red 2005
($28). With the ducks and
geese in the air, how about
wine to get you in the mood?

'The Wine Guys'

A blend of cabernet sauvignon
(45 percent), merlot, cabernet
franc and petit verdot, this
luscious wine packs a lot of
concentrated dark berry fruit.
Good depth and finish.
Francis Coppola Presents
Rosso 2005 ($11). We're not
enamored by the name given
to the film director's 2006 pur-
chase of Chateau Souverain.
But we are impressed by the
simple flavors of this delicious
wine. Intended to mimic the
everyday wines that graced
the Coppola's family table, the
rosso and bianco are charac-
terized by clean fruit flavors.
This rosso is a zany blend of
zinfandel (51 percent), syrah,
and cabernet sauvignon. Serve
it with pizza, pasta, burgers or

whatever is on the table
tonight. The bianco is a blend
of pinot grigio (86 percent),
sauvignon blanc and chardon-
Taltarni Three Monks
Cabernet Merlot 2005 ($15).
Generous plum notes with
good spice and herbs. Rich fla-
vors and soft texture excel-
lent value from Australia.
Domaine de Nizas Le Mas
Rouge 2002 ($13). A very nice
blend of cabernet sauvignon
(50 percent), syrah and merlot
from grapes grown in the
Languedoc region of southern
France. Explosive blackberry
and spicy aromas with simple
but balanced dark berry fla-
vors. The producer also makes
a pleasing white version of Le
Mas a blend of sauvignon
blanc and viognier.
Kir-Yianni Akakies Rose
Amyndeon 2006 ($12). Made
from xinomavro grapes grown
in a vineyard in northwest
Greece, this wine exhibited
one of the most beautiful
shades of pink/red we have
seen. Delightful cherry-scent-
ed nose with fresh
cherry/strawberry flavors and
a wonderful crisp food-friend-
ly finish. Serve with Greek
foods (obviously) or chicken
and veal dishes. Drink over
the next year.

Creating a smart

home for kids

T today's
enables us to
wire our
homes and
make them
Coffee can be
set to begin
before we
wake up and
lights turned
on before we
arrive home
from work at
night. But this
column isn't



focused on
creating a
smart home from a technolog-
ical perspective, but rather
how a home supports and
protects a child and reinforces
the love of learning.
Kid safe

Most homes have at least
one computer. In my own
home, we have five and a
sixth is on the way. Of course,
we work out of our home and
the majority of our business is
conducted via computers and
the Internet. My exposure to
the World Wide Web on a
daily basis is what makes me
more skeptical of the Internet
and knowledgeable about how
to protect myself and my fam-
ily. If you have children in
the house, and even if you
don't, computer protection is
a must. The first step in pro-
tecting your children is to
only allow Internet access in a
public area such as the living
room or kitchen. The comput-
er monitor should also be
shown and the child made to
sit with their back to you so
you can monitor where the
browser is going and the sites
and pages visited.

Take precautions
Many perfectly good and
well-meaning parents allow
unsupervised Internet brows-
ing yet would never drop their
child off in downtown
Houston in the middle of the
night and just leave. Yet,
when parents allow unsuper-
vised access on the Internet,
they have effectively done the
same thing. Having a comput-
er in a child's bedroom is fine,
but Internet access in the bed-
room is an open opportunity
for trouble, predators and
worse. For safety, computers
need barriers, such as fire-
walls, parental controls and
virus protection. Televisions
are another source of exposure
for children. Many can be pro-

grammed to
block inappro-
priate chan-
nels and
shows. Cable
and satellite
television serv-
ices also offer


. vv .-DE.n Besides
)LUMNIST erecting barri-
ers to the flot-
sam and jetsam coming into
your home via the Web and
TV, it's equally important to
create opportunities for learn-
ing in your d6cor. Some of my
favorite decorating elements
include maps and books. A
large coffee table atlas pro-
vides an opportunity for
rainy-day browsing by kids. In
our home, we have a standing
globe to inspire creativity and
knowledge of the world. We
watch the news every evening
and when a question comes
up about some event, we go
straight to the globe to find
out where the event's happen-
ing. Americans have notori-
ously poor geography skills,
but an atlas, globe or map will
encourage your child to learn
more about world geography.
Another wonderful addition
to a home is a dictionary
stand. We have one in with a
large unabridged dictionary.
This encourages interaction
with language and creates a
strong symbol in our home of
the importance of education.
Even a wall handing with a
large key and the word
"knowledge" imparts impor-
tant values about learning and
education. I truly believe that
our globe and dictionary
stand are the reasons why my
eight-year-old son's my most
frequent questions are about
where something is and what
a particular word means.
These two items stimulate
many interesting conversa-
tions between us and our son.
As a result, his vocabulary is
excellent and he often surpris-
es me with his wonderful, and
precise, use of words.
Creating a home that encour-
ages growth and learning is a
wonderful way to support

piece of the


BMW 3 Series with Run-flat tires
Leave it to the company of ideas to help create the best spare tire of all an unnecessary one. With Run-flat tires, standard
on the BMW 3 Series, we've made changing a flat tire on the side of the road a thing of the past. Thanks to integrated
reinforcements, if these tires ever experience a loss of air pressure, they continue to maintain their shape and full use. In fact,
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
more cargo room. To experience firsthand how great Ideas like these live on to become ultimate driving machines, visit your
local BMW dealer for a test drive.

bled on-site in Monroe, Ohio, next to Interstate-75. Meyer

surprises us when something
goes wrong.
"Pocket Full is a metaphor
for being prepared for life.....
"Quarters are a symbol of God's

free grace."
It is through God's help, she
said, that she has been able to
"say or do the right thing" in
response to what people tell
Touchton is the author of
two books, "Pocket Full of
Quarters 5 Steps to Loving
God" and "Pocket Full of
Christmas Having a Purpose
Filled Advent."
In 2006, she received the
Best Devotional Writer Award
