PVCA wants


of 210 issue

Despite some criticism from local
residents, some directors of the Ponte
Vedra Community Association (PVCA)
said Monday they still want more
information on a proposal to widen
County Road 210 just east of the PalnI
Valley bridge.
"We have tp raise the awareness of
it," PVCA director John Clifford said at
the group's meeting.
PVCA director Mark Arnold said'
traffic is too congested in that area
during hurricanes to accommodate
quick and safe evacuations.
County Road 210 is the only east-
west hurricane evacuation route out of'
Ponte Vedra Beach, a fact often cited
by those supporting the project to
widen 210 from two lanes to four
from the bridge to the Mickler Road
"A lot of [you] sat 11, 12, 13 hours in:
traffic during [Hurricane] Floyd,":
Arnold told other PVCA directors dur-!
ing the meeting in the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.

Some Ponte Vedra civic

vacancies in positions they
have, which are all volunteer.
The Ponte Vedra Beaches

Ponte Vedra Beach, has been

oversees the appearance of

And the Ponte Vedra

the kids who were covered from head to toe in mud.

Two weeks after Nocatee
developer Greg Barbour faced
tough questions in Ponte
Vedra Beach over a request to
expand the 15,000-acre devel-
opment, Barbour fielded simi-
lar queries Monday at another
venue in Ponte Vedra Beach.
But this time, the scene was
much more subdued as mem-
bers of the Ponte Vedra

Group, at their monthly
meeting at the Ponte Vedra

again found himself explain-
ing the Parc Group's proposal
to add 541 acres to Nocatee, a
mixed-use development west
of Ponte Vedra Beach.
The proposal would stretch
Nocatee's border east to the

Intracoastal Waterway north
of County Road 210, and resi-
dents are concerned' the
development of that area
would be hazardous to the
environment. Of the 541
additional acres, 141 would
be used to build single-family
homes, Barbour said.
During the earlier meeting,
Barbour indicated the houses
would be built near the
Intracoastal, but Monday he
said there were buffers pre-

In 1948, high school
sweethearts John and Jan
Mclvor stayed at the Casa
Marina Hotel in Jacksonville
Beach after they ran away
and were secretly married -
before divorcing four years
This year, on Valentine's
Day they returned together
to the Casa Marina for a
rehearsal dinner before a sec-
ond marriage for both.
The couple, who said they
consider the Casa Marina
Hotel one of the only places
in each of their lives 'to
come back to,' were each
married to other people in
the interim.
But after his beloved
spouse passed on, John said
he decided to see if he could
find his original sweetheart.

"I sent a letter to
Classmates.com and they
found Jan, forwarding my
letter on to her. I really want-
ed to prompt a reply from
her although I was appre-
hensive," said John, in
explaining how he found
Jan's husband had also
died, but she said she waited
two days to reply as she did
not want to show disrespect
to her husband's memory.
"But I was excited that I
was going to see John McIvor
again," she said.
John was living in
Jacksonville and Jan had a
home in Apopka. Within
days they arranged lunch in
Sanford, Florida.
"We had a nice visit like
old friends. What I remem-
ber, he forgets. What I've
forgotten, she remembers"
they agreed.

With eager words and
twinkling eyes, they describe
the wedding rehearsal dinner
at the Casa Marina and the
wedding that happened
nearly overnight. They noted
that friends they knew in
high school, who now live in
Albuquerque and

Free health test in Jacksonville Beach

Beaches Vein Center in
Jacksonville Beach will take
part in the country's largest,
most comprehensive national
screening program for venous
disease on March 23 during
National DVT Awareness
Month, Sponsored by the
American Venous Forum, the
screening is an early detection
program dedicated to
improved vascular health. As
part of this nationwide public
service program, Beaches Vein
Center, along with other
organizations, will conduct a
free, comprehensive venous
screening for thousands of
Americans across the country.
Disease of the leg veins kill
and cripple thousands of
Americans every year:
Dangerous blood clots form in
the leg veins of over 2.5 mil-
lion Americans each year.
These blood clots can

break loose and travel to the'
lungs, killing up to 200,000
Americans each year.
10%-35% of adults have
leg veins that do not work
Half a million Americans
have ulcers in their legs caused
by diseased veins.
The American Venous
Forum has created a screening
program to educate the public
about venous healthcare prob-
lems, risk factors, and preven-
tion and treatment options.
Beaches Vein Center is one
of over 100 specialized vascu-
lar centers this year who will
perform this screening pro-
gram. This program will assess
the venous health of all partic-
ipants and detect venous dis-
ease by screening for venous
reflux, examining legs for
changes related to venous dis-
ease, and assessing the risk of

developing a blood clot in the
veins. The screening is non-
invasive, painless, and risk
free, It will include a medical
questionnaire, a professional
examination of the legs, and
an ultrasound scan of the leg
veins. Educational materials
on venous diseases and their
prevention and treatment will
be distributed to participants
at the time of the screening.
Each participant is seen by a
physician or other vascular
healthcare professional with
expertise in venous problems.
Each participant will receive a
"Venous Report Card" as a
record of their findings, to
share with.their own doctor.
Those who are interested in
learning more about venous
disease and the tests and treat-
ments can call 904-246-6724
-at Beaches Vein Center.

zations may submit applica-
tions for grants through May
7. The Trust's Governing
Board will determine which
projects will receive funding
during a selection meeting in
"Parks, open spaces and
access to public water bodies

play a vital role in creating
livable communities for all
Floridians," said Department
of Community Affairs
Secretary Tom Pelham, who
serves as chairman of the
Governing Board.
Last year, the Trust awarded
more than $76 million for 20
projects throughout the state,
after receiving a record 118
grant applications from 94
different local governments
and non-profit environmen-
tal organizations.
The Trust will hold a series
of workshops at various loca-
tions across the state to help
potential applicants prepare
their requests. All workshops
are scheduled from 9 a.m.
until 1 p.m. The local work-
shop will be held Tuesday,
March 4 at the Northeast
Florida Regional Planning
Council offices. The work-
shops are free to government
officials and the public, and
no advance registration is
required. The Department of
Community Affairs helps
meet the needs of Floridians
by investing in communities
and working with them to

plan and manage growth. For

Organized doesn't

mean rigid or perfect

There is something about the spring air that motivates
even the worst procrastinators to dust off the cleaning
supplies and begin organizing their home or office
space. However, once the yearly ritual begins, many
people can describe how they feel in one word,
"That's because they think being 'organized' means
being rigid, sterile or perfect," explains Organizing Guru
Rosemary Chieppo, author of the handbook "Clutter,
Chaos & the Cure." Chieppo, who says her style "is
more Rachael Ray than Martha Stewart," defines organ-
ized as being able to find what you need, when- you
need it.
"It ain't rocket science," Chieppo defiantly proclaims.
"Organizing just means having a place for everything
and making sure everything is in its place."
Chieppo's unconventional approach stresses that
clearing physical clutter clears the clutter in the mind,
"Spring is all about renewal, so there's no better time to
reorganize your home and reinvigorate yourself."
Although her new handbook ranges from guidelines for
knowing when to throw out important papers to maxi-
mizing kitchen space, Chieppo offers the following five
general tips for simplifying spring organizing when the
"must-do-mood" hits:
1. Start with small tasks so you can indulge in the vic-
tory of completion. "Most people feel defeated before
they start, so this mindset is going to keep you motivat-
2. Give your things a home at the point of their use.
"Think toothbrush. You never misplace it because its
home is where you use it. The same concept should be
applied to just about everything else in your space."
3. Group like things .together,, "It allows, you to keep
inventory of what you do have so you don't end up with
17 black turtlenecks or 67 AA batteries!"
4. Don't put tall things in front of short things and
don't put big things on top of little things. "Most peo-
ple are visual; if they don't see something, it may as well
not exist."
5. Remember, organizing is an ongoing process.
"Once you've done the initial work of creating a place
for everything, don't sabotage your progress by falling
back into old habits. Try to return each item to its des-
ignated spot as soon as you can."
Before attempting to implement the tips, most clients
of her organizing business commonly present her with
the same two roadblocks. The first is concern about the
amount of time it will take to complete the organizing
project; to which she replies, "You think you don't have
time to get organized, but you must get organized in
order to have time."
The other hurdle involves mustering up the courage
to say "goodbye" to things accumulated over a number
of years. "I never saw a hearse pulling a U-Haul,"
Chieppo jokingly points out. The longtime member of
the National Association of Professional Organizers
states that many people tend to think of organizing
only in terms of physical space like closets, pantries and
papers, but adds it also has an emotional and mental
side. "They don't own their stuff. Their stuff owns
them. Bringing themselves to donate or discard an item
of sentimental value takes a certain amount of self-
Once a person is armed with knowledge of how to
organize and begins the process, Chieppo teaches that
the easier the system, the more likely they are to incor-
porate organizing into their daily routine. And that, she
contends, is where the real payoff comes into play,
"Keep your life organized, she says, and you'll find more
energy and clarity in every day. More importantly, next
year, you can spend your time.enjoying all spring has to
offer instead of cleaning!"

Barbour said the homes

Lanes said crucial for evacuation

> PVCA, from A-1

Clara Cowan, president of
the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition, said last month
that traffic is not congested in
that area of 210 during evacu-
"During Floyd, nobody had
trouble getting out of here,"
she said during the January
meeting of the Coalition. She
said the congested traffic was
centered around U.S. 1.
Residents of Sawmill Lakes,
whose neighborhood borders
210 to the north, have consis-
tently spoken out against the
proposal to widen 210. The
project could put the well-
traveled road close to several
Sawmill Lakes homes.
At least one member of the
Coalition, which represents
Sawmill Lakes and more than
a dozen other homeowner
associations in Ponte Vedra
Beach, last month criticized
PVCA members for getting

involved in the 210 widening
project, which is miles from
the area where most PVCA
members live.
Two members of the Ponte
Vedra Municipal Service
District later endorsed their
interest in the 210 issue, say-
ing hurricane evacuation is
every person's concern.
The county's right of way in
the area encompasses 83 feet,
but an extra 17 feet is said to
be needed to expand the road.
The state-owned Guana
Preserve borders 210 to the
south, and the state has been
unwilling to give up the
required land.
County commissioners
voted in October to accept
$5.5 million from the Parc
Group, master developer of
the Nocatee area, instead of
giving the company more
time to pay the money while
the county tried to acquire the

necessary land to widen 210.
But at Monday's meeting,
Arnold said the extra land is
not needed.
. "The reality is that there are
plenty of roads across the
state on 80 feet [of right-of-
way]," he said.
Joe Stephenson, director of
Public Works for St. Johns
County, has said that it is pos-
sible to build a four-lane road
on the 83 feet currently avail-
able, but the project would be
much more expensive than
the project would be with the
extra 17 feet.
PVCA directors may be get-
ting sidewalks along 210
instead of extra lanes. At
Monday's Coalition meeting,
Commissioner Cyndi
Stevenson said the $5.5 mil-
lion owed to the county is
slated for' "pedestrian
improvements" between the
bridge and the roundabout.

PV High showcases academies

It was standing room only last
week at Landrum Middle School
as about 50 persons attended a
presentation on a biotechnolo-
gy and medical research acade-
my planned for the new Ponte
Vedra High School. The high
school,, being built one mile
west of the Palm Valley bridge'
just east of Davis Park, is sched-
uled to open in August.
Leticha Martinez, whose son
Marcus is a ninth-grader at
Nease High School, came away
impressed with the academy.
"I think it's a good program,"'
she said after the presentation.
She said Marcus is interested
in the sports-related medical
field and thinks the academy
will provide him with "the ins
and outs [of biotechnology]
before he gets to college."
Dr. Katherine Kehoe, a chem-
istry teacher at Bartram Trail
High School, who is acting as a
consultant for the biotechnolo-

gy academy, gave the presenta-
tion at Landrum last week. She
said biotechnology is on the
cutting edge of medical
research, as the study of genetics
is yielding huge advances in the
medical field.
Academies are "multi-year,
specialized programs" that teach
"employability skills" and often
partner with employers to offer
internships and other opportu-
nities that utilize knowledge
and skills taught in the class-
room in the real world, accord-
ing to the School District's web
The Mayo Clinic and the
University of Florida are some of
the institutions partnering with
the biotechnology academy,
which will offer two academic
tracks medical biotechnology
and plant and animal biotech-
Along with 16 core curricu-
lum credits, biotech academy
students will take eight elective
credits with an emphasis on
biotechnology and its applica-
tion. Although academy stu-

The Leader's Opinion,

Vital to safeguard

our neighborhoods

Jacksonville Beach neighbors living along 18th Street
North are weary of partiers destroying property and rais-
ing a ruckus in the normally quiet, residential neighbor-
They note that the situation is so bad that there have
been repeated calls to the police.
In south Jacksbonville Beach, the residents along
Sandra Drive have complained about the late night driv-
ers roaring through their neighborhood, making it a
speedway shortcut for the post-bar crowd.
The problems have been presented to the city council
which has directed staff to follow through. That is as it
should be because maintaining the quality of life in our
neighborhoods is vital to all.
-"Police are well trained and committed to serving the
public, but numerous, concurrent calls can overwhelm
the available resources.
Most will agree that making sure there are adequate
resources to protect our -neighborhoods 24 hours a day,
seven days a week is worth the investment.
There are other ways to curb the concurrent demands
for service and one step was taken last week.
When the Jacksonville Beach City Council acted to
reduce bar hours on New Years Eve, to bring hours in
line with the surrounding communities, that was a pru-
dent move.
The Beaches are frequently referred to as Duval
County's playground but there is no need for
Jacksonville Beach to keep the bars open long past oth-
ers' closing time so that the drunken play can continue
into the wee hours.
Police resources will be deployed during upcoming fes-
tivals that draw visitors from far outside the area. But,
according to the police chief, the festivals, most of which
are 1-day events that end at 10 p.m., don't overly strain
the department.
Instead, the chief said, most of the calls for service that
require multiple officers to respond are logged between
10 p.m. and 3 a.m. To handle the load, two shifts of offi-
cers overlap.
The chief said he is currently looking at ways to reduce
some of those calls for service through changes in ordi-
nances. No specifics have been crafted yet on possible
changes, he added.
When his recommendations are ready for "prime
time" presentation, there should be enthusiastic consid-
eration for any recommended actions or changes.
One thing that will not change is the department's
-core function, the chief says. That function is to make
sure when someone picks up a phone and calls for a
police officer, they get one.
That is at the core of keeping our neighborhoods safe
| -something we can all support

Letters to the editor:

Amendment likely to pass

To the editor:
Florida is at a crossroads.
All across this great state, tax-
payers are sick and tired of
having to pay ever-increasing
property taxes to pay for ever-
increasing state government.
Since 2000, government
income from property taxes
has grown by 99 percent,
while Floridians' income grew
by only an average of 44 per-
cent. Now Floridians have a
chance to change all of that.
The Taxpayer Protection
Amendment is currently
. -beiing debated by the Florida
Taxation and Budget Reform
Commission. It would
requir_voter-approval foirany
new tax increase on the state
and local level and it would
also tie state and local spend-
ing increases to inflation and
population growth. This
would mean that
Government could not grow
any faster than the economy

without voter approval. This
would also prevent future
budget cuts, and force local
officials to focus on real prior-
ities such as education, infra-
structure, and law enforce-
ment. And last but not least,
your surplus taxes will be
returned to you! 'If there's a
budget surplus, that money
won't be wastefully spent by
government, but rather sent
back 'to you or credited
towards next year's taxes.
I believe the Taxpayer
Protection Amendment has a
good chance of passing. Once
passed, this amendment goes
directly on the 2008 Florida
ballot and when it does the
true 'battle for .Elorida's future

With less bluster and more

They then said they'd call

Talk of economic stimulus helps

boost consumer confidence in Fla.

Passage of the national eco-
nomic stimulus package and
state property tax amendment
helped boost Florida's con-
sumer confidence by four
points to 74 in February after
last month's decline to its low-
est level in 16 years, a new
University of Florida study
Four of the five components
that make up the index rose
this month. The largest
increase was in perceptions of
national economic conditions
over the next year, which
jumped 11 points to 66, fol-
lowed by expectations of
national economic conditions
over the next five years, which
rose eight points to 82. Two
components edged up two
points: perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago to 67, and expecta-
tions of personal finances a
year from now to 84. The only
component to fall was percep-
tions of whether it is a good
time to buy big-ticket items,
which dropped three points to
71, its lowest point since
December 1991.
"We certainly did not expect
this increase," said Chris
McCarty, director of UF's
Survey Research Center at the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "We think
the overall rise this month is a
reaction to the passage of the
stimulus package that will
result in payments to a majori-
ty of Florida households as
well as the passage of the prop-
erty tax amendment, which
was supported by 64 percent of
the voters. Both of these are, at
least temporarily, bright spots
for Florida consumers."
The data over the past two
months shows that confidence
fell steadily through January,
rose during the first week of
February and increased dra-
matically in the second week,
McCarty said. By the third

week of February, confidence
had fallen to January levels, he
"We expect this month's
overall rise in confidence to be
a temporary increase and that
confidence will decline next
month," he said.
Higher consumer confidence
levels come at a time when
policy makers are trying to
avert a recession or at least
minimize the effects of one,
McCarty said. However, the
positive effects of both the
stimulus package and the
property tax amendment will
probably be short-lived, and
the Federal Reserve Board's
decision to cut interest rates
carries some negative side
effects, he said.
"By lowering interest rates,
which may help loosen credit
for borrowers, the Federal
Reserve has further weakened
the dollar against other curren-
cies," McCarty said. "This has
contributed to the rise in the
price of oil and other com-
modities as can be seen in the
recent rise in the price of a gal-
lon of gas, which has increased
more than seven cents in the
past week."
'Although the stimulus pack-
age offers a welcome rebate
check, those borrowed funds
add to the deficit, McCarty
"And the property tax
amendment will no doubt
result in fewer services at the
local level, and may have long-
term downside effects on the
state economy as homeowners
take their tax exemptions with
them when moving in
Florida," he said.
There are some bright spots
for Florida homeowners hop-
ing to sell, though, McCarty
said. For instance, the property
tax amendment makes it more
affordable to move to a new
home, he said. The stimulus
package passed by Congress
temporarily increases the loan

amounts that can be pur-
chased by Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac from $417,000 to
$729,750, and
Florida has no shortage of
homes in this price range, he
Interest, rates have declined
in response to the cuts by the
Federal Reserve, although
recently the credit markets are
not moving in sync with the
Fed rate cuts, McCarty said.
Most importantly, average
home prices have been falling
to a point where they are
approaching the level they
would have been at this time
without the housing run-up,
he said.
"We anticipate that by July
home prices in many areas of
Florida will be at or near bot-
toming out," he said. "This
should attract some buyers
who have been waiting on the
sidelines for prices to stabilize,
assuming they can quality for
a loan."
The research center conducts
the Florida Consumer Attitude
Survey monthly. Respondents
are 18 or older and live in
households telephoned ran-
domly. The preliminary index
for February was conducted
from 408 responses.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buy-
ing patterns by measuring the
mood of consumers toward
purchasing. Although other
economic indicators also pre-
dict buying patterns, consumer
confidence tends to be avail-
able sooner. The index is
benchmarked to 1966, so a
value of 100 represents the
same level of confidence for
that year. The value of the
index is in comparing changes
over time rather than looking
at an isolated month.

Kingsley Plantation is featured in a new
novel by First Coast journalist and author,
M.C. Finotti that hits store shelvesthis week.
"The Treasure of Amelia Island" is historical
fiction for young adults ages 9 and up and

The novel is set in 1813, a tumultuous time
for the Spanish colony of La Florida, and for
11-year old Mary Kingsley. Patriots from the
United States want to kick Spain out of
Florida, take the land for themselves, and
enslave any freed people of color, like Mary
and her family.
In the middle of all this, Mary decides to

treasure hunt changes Mary Kingsley.forever.
"Through the eyes of a child, M. C. Finotti is
able to seamlessly weave a captivating fiction-

of the Kingsley family," said Carmen Godwin,
Director of the Amelia Island Museum of
The novel is something of a departure for
Atlantic Beach resident Marisa Carbone
Finotti, a freelance writer and former
Jacksonville television reporter. "I was inspired
to write this novel after literally falling in love
with Kingsley Plantation years ago. It's a spe-
cial place and Ana Jai Kingsley and her chil-
dren were special people in Florida history,"
she said.
A book launch for M. C. Finotti's novel will
be held March 8 at The Book Mark in Atlantic
Beach at 4 p.m. The party is free and open to

Wounded warriors are
coming home from our
wars, and the Jacksonville
area no doubt has a large
share. Appropriately, the
Wounded Warrior Project is
a Jacksonville-based non-
profit organization created
to furnish programs and
services to severely injured
armed forces men and
A local benefit to aid the
Project was highlighted in
the Feb. 15 and 20 Leaders:
two matches between uni-
versity lacrosse teams at
Fletcher High School on Feb.
According to a 2007
Bloomberg media report,
Wounded Warrior has been
involved in funding an
effort to get these vets,
including amputees, into a
sport which, at first, may
surprise us; namely--- scuba
diving. One might ask,
Aren't arms and legs essen-
tial for that? How could an
amputee do it?
Answer: enthusiastically,
assuming he or she has the
proper training.
The activity has been
spearheaded at Walter Reed
Army Medical Center in
Washington, DC by a volun-
teer---dive instructor John
Thompson. Per the
Bloomberg report,
Thompson is certified to
teach people with handicaps
and got the idea for the
scuba program after working
with the Red Cross at Walter
Reed's aquatic therapy unit.
The organization he
founded is called, for short,
SUDS---Soldiers Undertaking
Disabled Scuba. Walter Reed
provides the instructional
pool and related facilities
but no funds. That's a func-
tion of SUDS, with the help
of charitable entities such as
Wounded Warriors.
So how do the handi-
capped soldier/students fare
in this challenging pastime?
Evidently very well.
Thompson calls the water
The Great Equalizer.
"Many things," he says,
"are just easier to do in the
water with these types of
injuries. It's part rehabilita-
tion, part confidence build-
ing, (and) part adventure for
these wounded warriors. I'm
really inspired by the sol-
diers at Walter Reed."
Pondering the difficulty of
traveling underwater when
lacking one or more limbs, I
realized that Thompson is
In that weight-reduced
environment, the compara-
tive mobility of an amputee
improves in relation to non-
disabled people. Humans
can't really move very fast
while submerged.
During my diving days,
although possessing all four
limbs, I was frustrated by my
low velocity when avoiding

Patsy has worked in the industry since 1989, and she
and her husband, Tom, started Atlantic Laser in 1992.
Since that date they have been building a unique, serv-

Students learn 'acting with the body'


The husband-and-wife drama-
teaching team of Chris Beaulieu
and Jess Pillmore has been busy in
Ponte Vedra Beach of late.
Feb. 20 marked the conclusion of
four weeks of Commedia dell Arte
for 27. students at Landrum Middle
School, while the next day the cou-
ple, cofounders of Creatively
Independent, a Virginia-based tour-
ing performing arts company,
wrapped up a similar period of
instruction for fourth- and fifth-
graders at Rawlings Elementary.
The Rawlings session, which
opened with more than 30 students
but had dwindling attendance,
involved physical skills, improvisa-
tion and ensemble.
Pillmore and Beaulieu also helped
Ocean Palms' third-grade class
develop characters for their produc-
tion of "The Lion King."
. This was the eighth year the cou-
ple was funded by the Ponte Vedra
Public Education Foundation. Both
estimated they previously had
worked with 80 percent of the
Landrum students.
"Some of them we've had since
third-graders, and now they're
eighth-graders," Beaulieu said' Pel ,
Pillmore and Beaulieu also have
been working with kindergarten
through fifth-grade students at
Discovery Montessori in
Jacksonville Beach on a
Shakespeare program '
The Landrum students learned
teamwork and, ensemble building
through Commedia Mask.
"With mask work, it's reallydiffi-
cult to put your whole body into it
and become another character in a-
very grotesque way," said Pillmore.
"They're very large features, stereo-
types of characters Archetypes,
Pillmore said she thought the stu-
dents got "a stronger sense of how
much energy, it takes to truly tell a
story with your whole body and
your voice, especially when your
facial features, to a certain extent,
are taken away by the-mask. So you
have to use everything else to show

a range of emotions every second."
An open call forf sixth- through
eighth-graders at Landrum pro-
duced the participants, who worked
together in groups of five to seven.
"It's structured improve, a lot of
physical theatre," said Pillmore.
"Our way of teaching is get up and
get sweating."
One of the couple's goals was to
get the students to say "Yes."
"'Yes' is a hard word for some. It's
easier to say 'No' and protect your-
self than to say 'Yes' and accept
somebody else's idea," said
Sixth-grader Thomas Nightingale
portrayed a portly Italian named
"I've worked with these guys
since fourth grade," Nightingale
said of Beaulieu and Pillmore.
"They're awesome. They teach us so
much. They taught us how to focus
on lines and acting. I've
learned a lot."
Sixth-grader Sarah
Hussein, who had the.
couple one time at
Rawlings, said the stu-
dents learned how to
express themselves "with
our spines. It's not really
wearing the mask. It's
more like acting with the
mask. It's just another
prop. It's not like we're
actors doing movies. It's
not verbal. It's acting
with the body."
Beaulieu was pleased
with the results.
"This is a great group of
kirls," he said. "The thing
I've noticed most about
them is they've really
learned how to take these
risks we've been talking
about for the past three
years. Now they're old
enough to get what that 2
means, to step into a dra-
matic character or to take
a risk comedically, which
usually is scary for most
'people because it means
the. possibility of embar-
rassing yourself or put-
ting yourself out there in
a way that someone
might laugh at you.

S. Ballet: Links cultural, senior centers

Continued from A-7
Beauty on Ice" at the
University of North Florida.
"Our programming is
geared toward seniors, but
we invite all ages," said Julie
Wright, site coordinator at
the Players Community
Senior Center.
"I think it's so vital to
changing perceptions about
aging in the community.
When young people come
in, and see that older folks
are trying something for the
first time or are committed
to an activity, I think it's a
win-win for everybody."
Among members of the
ballet class is Krista Boyer,
19, an aspiring-ballerina set
.back by a broken foot two
years ago. Wolf has been

working with Boyer, whose
foot is fine for pedestrian
activities, to bring her back
up to ballet speed.
"I love Dawn Wolf as a
teacher," Boyer said at a
recent class session.
"She's really thorough,
very careful, [and] makes
sure you don't get injured.
She's had a lot of injuries
[so] knows how to deal with
them. She's helped me out
with my injury.
"She's very kind and
encouraging, and she loves
ballet," said Boyer. "It's so
much fun to take a class
from someone who has a
true passion for ballet."
Boyer assists. Wolf with a
tot class at at Wolf's business
as well as with the seniors.

But the seniors class and its
slow pace also helps her get
"back in shape in recovering
from my injury," Boyer said.
The ballet class at the sen-
ior center was extended from
the fall because the grant
was extended, which was
due.td'the popularity of the
class, Wolf said.
"I just love my seniors,"
she said, "and they love it.
So we're going to keep it
going," Wolf said, adding,
that she hopes the class con-
tinues into the summer.
There is a waiting list for
the class, and Wolf said a
second session could be
added "if we have enough
response." ,

historic home in Cross Creek, Fla.

School gets Rawlings stamp


Fourth- and fifth-graders at Rawlings
Elementary School attended a special assem-
bly Tuesday that honored the woman for
whom the school is named.
Five teachers retiring from the Ponte Vedra
Beach school joined representatives of the U.
S. Postal Service in unveiling, for the facility,
an oversized version of the stamp dedicated to
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marjorie
Kinnan Rawlings.
Fifth-grade teachers John Bracco, Jean Ellis
and Bobby Langston and third-grade teachers
Linda Gibson and Joyce Walter have a com-
bined 136 years of teaching, according to
Principal Kathleen Furness.
"The postage stamp we've been using in our
country for 168 years," said Furness. "Their
collective teaching almost represents the
number of years we've been using postage
First-day-of-issue ceremonies for the stamp
were held Feb. 21 at Rawlings' home in
Hawthorne, Cross Creek, Fla. The house was
designated a National Historic Landmark in

2007 by the National Park Service.
The stamp's image, which features Rawlings
and a young deer to commemorate her prize-
winning novel "The Yearling," was created by
artist Michael Deas and art director Carl
Born in 1896 in Washington, D.C., the
author of more than 35 books and short sto-
ries and her memoir, "Cross Creek," was
awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1939
for "The Yearling."
During the ceremony at Rawlings, the
school received, in addition to an enlarge-
ment of the stamp, a framed gallery of the
stamp and its cachet, and a first-day-of-issue
cachet from the unveiling in Hawthorne.
The students in attendance were to receive,
following the ceremony, an envelope with the
stamp afixed. The stamp is the 24th in the
Postal Service's Literary Arts Series
The Postal Service was represented by Bill
Tyler, public affairs and communications for
the Southeast area; Donna Hull, manager of
business development for the North Florida
District; Ponte Vedra Beach postmaster Brian
Gordon; Lucious Sumlar, manager of market-
ing for the North Florida District; and Mary
Dobbins, manager of consumer affairs.

Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.
The news release said that if out-of-zone

Imagine the good your

group can do, one checking

account at a time.

Now, opening a SunTrust checking account can help you make a real difference in your
own community. Simply open your account, accept and make any puL chase with your new
SunTrust Visa Check Card, then submit a completed redemption form, and SunTrust will
donate $100 in your name to the qualified non-profit cause of your choice That means
you and likeminded friends can work together to get those new uniforms for the team,
to finally purchase the playground equipment, or outfit the theater with that new stage
curtain. And if your favorite cause is a little more personal, you can get a $50 SunTrust
Visa-' Gift Card instead
SunTrust also offers SunPoints for Charity, 'an ongoing rewards program that lets you
support your favorite cause by turning everyday banking into everyday giving.
What will your group do with the opportunity? We can't wait to find out. Visit your local
