Teen's photos


capture her


final journey


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
"A Peaceful Journey" is a new art show in
Ponte Vedra Beach featuring photographs
taken by a Ponte Vedra teen in the weeks
before her death.
Nicolette Beverly Leach, known as Nicki,
died April 29, 2005 at age 19, and the art show
reflects "a journey into God's arms," said
Bunny Leach, the artist's mother.
Nicki grew up attending Ponte Vedra
Presbyterian Church with her family. Her
works are displayed in Bethel Gallery, which is
in the church at 4510 Palm Valley Road.
Nicki, who graduated in 2004 from Douglas
Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville,
was diagnosed with brain cancer just after her
17th birthday.
She went through surgeries and numerous
other treatments, and as her illness progressed,
the young woman lost part of her sight and
the ability to speak and write. She then asked
her family for a camera.
"Nicki had such big aspirations," said her
mother.
SAs her daughter realized she would not be
able to pursue her dream of a career in the
theatre, Leach said that Nicki used the camera
to photograph "her world."
The beauty of the St. Johns River near
Nemours Children's Clinic, the path to the
beach and turtles and other small creatures
near her family's home were all subjects for
her color and black and white photography.
Despite everything Nicki "found peace and
joy in her life," said Bunny Leach.
The exhibit has special meaning for the orig-

inator of Bethel Gallery and the church's visu-
al arts ministry, Ellen Jones.
Jones, who started the ministry seven years
ago, knew the Leach family from church.
She said she first saw Nicki Leach's photo-
graphs on a local art registry web site and
wanted to "do Nicki's show" as the last exhibit
she would coordinate at the church.
The ministry will continue under the direc-
tion of Vicki Morgan.
"I wanted to bring special attention to this
exhibit because I knew Nicki....It was her hope
that in some way, she would be able to help
others who suffered from cancer," Jones writes
in the arts ministry newsletter.
A portrait of Nicki painted by Jones is the


only piece other than Nicki's photographs in
the art show.
The art show also highlights the Nicki Leach
Foundation, a nonprofit organization that
provides financial assistance to 16- to 25-year-
olds with life-threatening cancer.
At a time when most people are becoming
independent, these young adults are facing
the opposite, said Bunny Leach.
In the request for assistance from the foun-
dation, applicants are asked to answer the
question, "How would you use a gift from
Nicki?"
To date, 15 persons have received funds
from the foundation. Most have requested
help with college expenses, Bunny Leach said.


Electric


rates are


going up

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A rate hike is expected next month for cus-
tomers of Beaches Energy. Services to compen-
sate for the high cost of natural gas.
Effective June 1, a residential customer who
uses approximately 1,000 kilowatt hours will
see an increase of $10.74 to reflect the change
in the bulk power cost.
The increase will'not provide any addition-
al profit for Jacksonville Beach but will be
used to pay for the actual cost of producing
electricity.
According to Beaches Energy Services, the
bulk power cost adjustment will rise from
$0.04116 per kilowatt hour to $0.05190 per
kilowatt hour.
Beaches Energy customer service supervisor
Glenda Wagner said Thursday that the
increase will result in a cost of $129.97 for
1,000 kwh of electricity.
"Beaches Energy still remains below stte
average. Historically, our rates have always
been below state average," Wagner said, not-
ing that Ft. Meade ranks highest in the state
with rates at $160.45 per 1,000 kwh.
"There are 32 utilities in the state with rates
higher than Beaches Energy," she said.
For JEA customers in Atlantic Beach, a
monthly fuel charge of $15 will be applied to
utility bills beginning in July.
The 1,000-kilowatt-hour rate for JEA cus-
tomers will also increase to $110.93.
Combined, monthly JEA bills will rise more
than 15 percent.
Wagner said the utility providers with the
lowest rates use coal as a primary source of

Controlled burn planned


FROM STAFF
The Guana Tolomato
Matanzas National Estuarine
Research Reserve (GTM) south
of Ponte Vedra Beach will
conduct a controlled burn
beginning this week along a
portion of the coastal pre-
serve.
The habitat restoration
project is designed to preserve
the area by reducing the vege-
tation that can fuel damaging
wildfires during the dry sum-
mer months and contributes
to habitat restoration for the
coastal strand community.
"We are working hard to
maintain the natural integrity
of Florida's ecosystems. Many
of these - ecosystems are
dependent on fire for their
continued existence," said
GTM Research Reserve
Stewardship Coordinator
Forest Penny.
"It is our goal to manage
these areas to the best of our
abilities with the latest tech-
niques."
During May, 104 acres of
coastal strand stretching 2
miles will be mowed and the
controlled burn will be con-
ducted by GTM Research
Reserve staff with equipment
supported by the Division of
Forestry.
Coastal strand habitat exists
immediately landward of
beach dunes and is dominat-


ed by scrub oaks, saw palmet-
to and shrubs.
The controlled conditions
of prescribed burning aims to
reduce the opportunity for
wildfires while opening areas
of habitat to support the
growth of herbaceous grass
and other plants that are crit-
ical to wildlife and a healthy
ecosystem.
Prescribed burning is con-
ducted under very specific
weather parameters with
highly trained staff to ensure
the safe and successful appli-
cation of fire as a manage-
ment tool to preserve Florida's
diverse, fire-dependent natu-
ral communities.
This specific burn unit is
surrounded by fire breaks and
a non-combustible maritime
oak hammock leave little con-
cern for fire escaping the pre-
scribed area, according to a
news release from the Guana.
Sufficient suppression
equipment and staff will be
on site for the duration of the
burning activity to help pre-
vent fire from leaving the des-
ignated area.
Smoke management is a
concern in this part of St.
Johns County. Necessary steps
will be taken to minimize the
production of smoke and
maximize dispersion away
from the area under adequate
atmospheric conditions.


The northern portion of the
Guana reserve lies between
the ocean and the Intracoastal
Waterway south of Mickler
Road.

Fletcher grad's modeling career taking off


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Beach resident
Scott Clelland has traded in
his flip flops for couture as he
pursues a modeling and act-
ing career.
A Fletcher High School
graduate, Clelland, 23, has
modeled for companies such
as Abercrombie & Fitch and
was featured in a full-page
spread in USA Today for a
national Dillard's ad cam-
paign.
He currently has a model-
ing contract with MC2 Model
Management in Miami,
whose clients include former
model and actor Ashton
Kutcher.
"It's like a fantasy," said
Clelland, who grew up in
south Jacksonville Beach.
Clelland's budding career
began a year ago after he
attended a local casting call
and received several highly-
coveted "call back cards."
"It's not that hard [to
model]. You just have to
know your personality,"
Clelland said in a recent
phone interview.
"You have to be open, calm
and natural around people."
While most up-and-comers
are lucky to receive just one
call back card from an
agency, Clelland received
seven at the first model expo-
sition he attended.
Although he never had
plans to become a model,
Clellarid's family and friends
often told him he had both
"the body and the look" for
it.
"We often mentioned it,"
said Clelland's mom, Sherry
of Jacksonville Beach.
At 18, Clelland served a

short stint with the John
Casablancas modeling agency
in Jacksonville, but, accord-
ing to his father, did not take
an interest in the industry
because he said it was too
"fake" for him.


"He's a real grounded kind
of kid," Bruce Clelland, a
professional surfer who once
modeled for surfing maga-
zines, said.
Since reconsidering his
career path, Scott Clelland


has done fashion shoots in
Greece and Germany.
"Coming from the beach,
you get to see certain types of
styles, but being'in this indus-
try, you get to sample things
you probably wouldn't get to


wear," he said.
Clelland worked
scaper before his
career took off. Hi

he said.
"You have to have the look
and be convincing."
He said modeling is "one-
faced," whereas acting
requires a harder "sell" to
land a role.
S Clielland isn't the only one
. who thinks he has a shot at
an acting career.
According to Bruce
Clelland, American fashion
photographer and occasional
filmmaker Bruce Weber said
S . Scott has a future as an actor.
The rising model's family
Photo submitted isn't worried about how all
this might change their son.
"Scott is really laid back.
None of this has really gone
as a land- to his head," said Sherry
modeling Clelland. "We're not worried
s ultimate about the outside stuff affect-

energy rather than natural gas, which is
clean-burning and more environmentally
friendly than coal.
The state of Florida has stopped issuing
permits for construction of new coal-burn-
ing facilities because of global concerns
about the environment.
Natural gas accounts for more than half
of the electricity provided by Beaches
Energy to the 32,000 utility customers in
Ponte Vedra Beach, Neptune Beach and
Jacksonville Beach.
While the price of natural gas is usually
stable and predictable, costs in recent
years have fluctuated in the increasingly
volatile market.
"Natural gas prices have risen 400 per-
cent since 2000," Wagner said. "We have
no control over the price of natural gas,
just like we have no control over the price
of the gas that you put in your car."


As the cost of natural gas continues to
rise, so will the utility rates.
Wagner said customers can make
allowances at home that will help lower
their monthly bills and help the environ-
ment.
"As the demand for electricity increases,
the rates will increase as well. We may see
more increases in the future. But the
answer right now is energy conservation,"
she said.
"People who want to save oi gas drive
less. People who want to help conserve.
energy use less electricity."
SWagner said Beaches Energy Services
offers a free energy audit with a trained
analyst for customers to determine ways
to lower their monthly usage.
A free online audit is also available for
customers at www.beachesenergy.com.

Requests for food stamps up 'considerably'

consistently been up easily 10
io 15 percent."
He said the number of peo-
ple applying for food stamps
and other federal assistance
has "jumped considerably" but
the cost of food is also on the
rise, making it difficult if not
impossible for people to get
ahead.
"It's ridiculous," Maloney
said. "People are putting $60 in
their cars each week. If your
-pendable income is only $65
and [$5 is] . . . all you have left
, you can't even break even,"
she said.
"Not when you have to work
an hour -and a half at mini-
mum wage to pay for a box of
cereal and a gallon of milk


when a gallon of gas and a box
of cereal are both $4. You just
can't do it."
Flager said the majority of
Mission House clients are sin-
gle men and women but he
anticipates seeing more fami-
lies by the end of summer.
"It's a seasonal- thing.
Families who are on the road
don't start arriving until later
on in the summer," Flager said.
"It has to do with the end of
school, seasonal occupations
and the economy elsewhere. If
the bottom falls out some-
where else, there is still this
myth that there are always jobs
in Florida, particularly in con-
struction."
With families, particularly


those with small children,
Flager said food and shelter are
the most important needs.
Mission House and B.E.A.M.
"work together whenever we
can to assist families with
emergency situations," Flager
said.
Both agencies must rely on
grants, private contributions
and the donations from area
businesses, churches and civic
organizations to help families
make ends meet.
At Mission House, Food
Lion, Publix and the Fresh
Market help to keep the tran-
sient families fed.
"We are blessed by the gen-
erosity of the community. We
couldn't do it without that


support,' Flager said, noting
that Mission House dispensed
more thanl0,000 pounds of
donated food last year.
A grant recently obtained
from the McCann Family
Foundation will be used to
help keep the kitchen at
Mission House in working
order.
And as long as donations
remain steady, Flager said there
are no plans on the immediate
horizon to modify their operat-
ing budget.
"We are always good stew-
ards of what we have. So far we
have been able to stay ahead of
the curve. But now we are
entering the period of the year
when donations are slow.".

Homeless census

results overdue


On April 10, those involved in an annual census of the
homeless population in Duval County predicted it
would be two weeks before numbers were available from
the census that was done in January.
Today, more than a month later, the results are still not
available for the Beaches or countywide.
Such a delay is simply unacceptable. It should not take
so long to release a final tally on the number of home-
less individuals throughout Duval County.
To his credit, Jan Flager, executive director of the
Mission House in Jacksonville Beach, is also concerned
and looking for the information as soon as possible.
He has said previously that it is expected the overall
numbers will be up from previous year, and explained
that it is taking longer to pull all the data together as
there is more to assess.
When you consider that the deadline for each agency
to submit its information was March 24 it is difficult to
accept that even a simple tally is not yet available.
The United Way organization compiles the data using
two sets of figures from approximately 40 to 50 agencies.
One figure represents the number of persons seen on a
single day in January to provide an overall "snapshot,"
Flager has said. Theother figure is the total number of
persons seen by each agency throughout the prior year.
Flager said the agencies are not permitted to release
their individual numbers until all of the data is com-
piled.
When it takes so long to release information that was
gathered months ago, the credibility of the data suffers.
Cynics will speculate that the data was manipulated.
More importantly, though, long-term solutions to a
problem can't be realistically developed until the actual
scope of the problem is known to all.
Whether the numbers are up or down, the results of
the homeless survey are definitely overdue.

Let's see how many busi-

flag etiquette this Memorial
Day.
George Moore Chevrolet is

Take pride in your country

Cruise ships offer Mayport prosperity


To the editor:
This letter is in response to a'
letter written by Sandra Tuttle.
The Tuttle Family and I have
been friends ever since I arrived
here from Portugal when I was
ten - 71 years ago.
At one time the Tuttles
owned two large, 72-foot
shrimp boats. They're no
longer in existence. The Tuttles
sold their boats several years
ago.
Mayport is no longer the
quaint fishing village. It was at
one time with good successful
fisherman. I would say it was a
happy, friendly village.
I as a newcomer foreigner
was accepted by everyone who
all became my friends.
Now to all our regret it is no
longer the happy and success-
ful and quaint village it once
was. Take a trip to Mayport, it
is instead a blighted village.
At one time Mat Roland
Seafood had 50 workers for the
boats. At my business we had
20 employees for a total of 70.
At Safe Harbor Seafood at one


time they had 80 on the boats
and 30 at the plant.
Now together with the men
who run and work on the boats
at my business, the number is
down to 10 and the men who
work at my place of business is
down to three.
Safe Harbor Seafood is facing
reduction too, from about 110
at the most at one time to
approximately 60 including
the boats and the plant. We are
all facing a very seemingly
bleak future in the seafood
business. Two factors are affect-
ing our industry. Imports from
foreign countries mostly farm
raised. And now an even
greater threat - the exorbitant
price of fuel.
We believe the Port
Authority bringing cruise ships
to Mayport will bring a new era
of prosperity. More jobs for the
unemployed in the area and
more prosperity for businesses
in the area. We all will see a
brighter future.
Mat Roland
Mayport

Dancin' festival

was a wonderful

event with lots

of hard work by

many evident


To the editor:
Last weekend the hard working people of
Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach put togeth-
er an awesome 22nd annual Dancin' in the
Street festival. And The Beaches Leader prints...
"NB fields complaints about festival crowd" on
the front page.
What about the awesome local bands that
played to an enthusiastic crowd? What about
the hard-working merchants who put out the
delicious food and wonderful merchandise?
What about the great blow-up exhibits that
attracted many happy kids? What about the
diligent security and law enforcement folks
who kept the large crowd safe?
I was at this year's Dancin' in the Street and
it was totally awesome! With a large crowd
there will always be a few "bad apples". Can
you put them in your "Crime and Disorder"
section and allow the front page to,applaud
the hard work, talents and success of a great
local festival? Thank you.

JOANNE WILLIAMS
GUEST COLUMNIST

It's up to

boomers

to demand

improved

images of

seniors


article refers to the Boomers
and aging. A demographic
study in one of those publica-
tions, identifies those born
before 1946 (generation prior
to Boomers) as "Matures".
Using that study as demo-
graphic criteria would include
everyone who is currently 62
through 99 years of age.
That is a significant span of
years, interests, abilities, and in
my opinion, the basis for some
of the inaccurate misconcep-
tions about older people, also
commonly referred to as
"Senior Citizens".
If these types of studies influ-
ence choices for hiring deci-
sions and consumer prefer-
ences, there's a heck of a lot of
us who are doomed.
Living to be 100 years of age
is a possibility for many of us.
We are doing a much better job
of being proactive about adopt-
ing healthy lifestyles.
Unless there is more than lip
service for'hiring mature work-
ers, some could end up with a
life style not unlike the old Mel
Gibson Road Warrior movie,
'with' a- bunrch- of" really" old,
dirty people, wearing rags and
living in trashed cars.
The article went on to say
Boomers do not like and will
not accept the "Senior Citizen"
label and are changing the way
people are aging. Well, they
certainly changed the way the
previous generation retired.
The massive downsizing of
workers in the 80's occurred
while boomers were at the
helm of commerce.
The way I see it, it's payback
time; the Boomers owe us. A
sit-in or demonstration by the
Boomers might capture media
attention.
This could force advertisers
to depict older people in a
more positive way. It seems to
me that older people are por-
trayed on television in a nega-
tive and distorted way.
The commercial about the
grandfather in the restaurant
who is trying to select an eco-
nomical entree because his
grandson is buying probably
would be depicted a bit differ-
ently if a Boomer was the
grandfather. Advertisements
for mobility devices are border-
line offensive. Couldn't the
person using the scooter be
duded up a bit? How about
showing that Boomer surfer
guy on one of the scooters with
his board?
Cartoons with little old lady
drivers, scrunched forward
with a death grip on the steer-
ing wheel; weaving away from
the traffic havoc she has creat-
ed are particularly offensive.
Anyone seen a cartoon show-
ing the upbeat, aggressive
Boomer, with a cell phone or
Blue Tooth strapped to his ear
zooming away in his rad auto-
mobile leaving crunched cars
in his wake?
The most disgusting ads are
the ones for various ointments
for itchy skin or the grumpy
old lady critiquing the fiber in
dairy products. Yep, nine
times out of ten it's going to be
a rickety oldster using the stuff.
Boomers don't get itches and
rashes and need fiber? You get
the message.
Since the Boomers are a force
to be reckoned with, it's time
for them to step up to the plate
and use that mass marketing
appeal and come up with some
new standards.
If they don't, it's only a mat-
ter of time before demograph-
ics shift and they will become
SENIOR CITIZENS!!!!!

"When I heard about the program, I didn't believe I'd save any money. After
receiving my report and giving it to my insurance agent, I got a call that they
would be sending me a check for $433.88! I never dreamed I could save that
much EVERY YEAR! Thanks Ameripro!"

"Like most people, I was tentative about this program. However, I decided to
try it after seeing it advertised and hearing of the savings some homeowners
were receiving. I got a call from my agent the other day who said that
because of this inspection, I was eligible for a $873 credit this year and a
$375.15 savings on my policy premium each year!


I'm recommending this inspection to all of my buyers and sellers. Best of all,
it's FREE! Who can pass that up? Ameripro proves me wrong again!"

to protect themselves against
mosquitoes due to a recently
confirmed case of Eastern
equine encephalitis (EEE) in a
horse in St. Johns County.
The caution came earlier this
week from the St. Johns County
Health Department and
Anastasia Mosquito Control
District.
EEE is transmitted to mam-
mals through the bite of an
infected mosquito.
Animals are monitored' as
sentinels for arboviruses such as
EEE, West Nile virus and St.
Louis encephalitis virus, to
determine if any of those three


viruses are present in the com-
munity.
Mosquito-bome infections in.
people can cause headache,
fever, dizziness, confusion,
movement disorders and coma.
To prevent mosquito bites
and mosquito-borne illnesses,
the Health Department and
Mosquito Control District offer
the following suggestions:
* Minimize outdoor activities
during dusk and dawn when
mosquitoes are most active.
* When outdoors and mos-
quitoes are present, wear shoes,
socks, long pants, and a long-
sleeved shirt.
* Use mosquito repellent as
directed by the manufacturer.
* Repair screens.

Parking limits


eyed for AB-NB's


Town Center area


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Parking limits or metered
parking for the Town Center
area in Neptune Beach will be
studied.
The city is eyeing parking lim-
its after. merchants requested
timed parking, according to
City Manager Jim Jarboe.
Parking in the area has
become even more limited since
One Ocean Hotel and Resort
opened, Jarboe said.
According to Jarboe, the hotel
has approximately 400 employ-
ees during various shifts and
merchants said hotel staff and
contractors are parking in pub-
lic spaces for long periods of
time.
Merchants suggested a one-
hour parking limit for spaces,
but the council agreed a two-
hour limit would be more rea-
sonable.
"It's worth looking at and get-
ting feedback," said Neptune
Beach Mayor Dick Brown. He
cautioned that there is "always
the possibility that someone
shopping or having dinner
could have a bad experience."
If the city moved forward
with timed parking, Jarboe sug-
gested hiring a retired police
officer who could work part
time at an hourly rate without
benefits to write citations.
A regular parking citation -is
$25, according to the police
department.


Merchants along Ocean
Boulevard on the Atlantic Beach
side of Town Center also had
problems with parking spaces
being tied up throughout the
day. The city of Atlantic Beach
installed two-hour parking signs
for the 12 spaces in front of the
businesses.
Councilor John Weldon s u g
gested the city also study
metered parking.
"We're entering a financial
era with this municipality and
other municipalities in Florida
where the sources of revenue are
important," he said.
Councilor Eric Pardee dis-
agreed with Weldon's sugges-
tion for metered parking.
"I don't think it's right to
charge people to park on a street
they already pay taxes on," he
said.
"If you want to have a desig-
nated area somewhere else for
people who don't live here [but]
I don't know how you would do
that."
Pardee added Town Center
merchants could "kick in"
toward the cost of enforcing a
two-hour parking limit.
Councilor Fred Lee said the
city previously studied the idea
of metered parking and the
"number were not very favor-
able," but it would be worth
"refreshing their memories" on
the subject.
The council agreed to study
both options.


AB enforces click it or ticket


According to statistics pro-
vided by the department, the
number of unbuckled deaths is
considerably higher in the
evening hours. Approximately
46 percent of vehicle occu-
pants killed in car crashes were
not wearing their seat belts.


The city of Atlantic Beach is
buckling down on drivers who
are not wearing their seat belts.
Through June 1, the city's
police department will enforce
the Click It or Ticket campaign
to increase the use of seat belts
and reduce the number of
crash fatalities.

Realtors launch campaign to

urge residents to 'Put Your

Money Where Your Life Is'


photo submitted
Ralph Tiernan, right, owner of Fly's Tie Irish Pub in Atlantic Beach, has opened his second restaurant, Gas Knob, next to the
Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena downtown. Tierman, along with partner Michael Hennessy have already opened the restau-
rant. "We're going to offer a pretty broad menu selection, including Irish dishes, with other entrees from our travels around Ireland,
Central America and the East Coast of the U.S.," Tierman said. Gas Knob is located at 234 A. Phillip Randolph Blvd, in downtown
Jacksonville next to the Jacksonville Arena.


FROM STAFF
The Northeast Florida
Association of Realtors
(NEFAR) has adopted a cam-
paign - Put Your Money
Where Your Life Is.
The Association announced
that it has free online
resources for consumers on its
newly redesigned web site,
www.NEFAR.com, including
information on the state of
the Northeast Florida real
estate market, homeowner-
ship survey results, housing
study recaps and other useful
articles.
"We've heard so many omi-
nous national reports that
have predicted doom and
gloom for our industry, so we
set out to check the pulse in
North Florida in order to
report the facts," said Bonnie
Siecker, 2008 NEFAR
President. "Admittedly, the
last couple of years have been
tough, but Northeast Florida
is already showing signs of
improvement and buying a
house for the right reasons is
always a good idea."
She noted that in an article
titled "The Housing Crisis is
Over," The Wall Street Journal


reported on May 6 that, "It is
very likely that April 2008 will
mark the bottom of the U.S.
housing market."
On a regional level, Siecker
points out that there are still
great buys to be found for
,consumers who are in the
market for a home and know
where to look. Forbes recently
ranked the Jacksonville region
as number eight of its "Ten
Most Affordable Cities for
Bargain House-Hunters."
Chris McCarty, director of
the University of Florida's
Research Center at the Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research, recently indicated
that home prices in parts of
Florida are returning to rea-
sonable levels - back to where
they would have been with-
out the escalation over the
past few years, NEFAR noted.
"We expect housing prices
in many Florida markets to
bottom out by July, following
another weak home-buying
season," he says. "Although it
will be a long time before real
estate returns to 2005 prices,
it will be a reasonable time for
Floridians waiting to buy a
house to enter the market."


Business Workshops
Small business workshops will
be held at the Beaches next
month.
A four-part workshop series
will be presented by SCORE and
the Jacksonville Chamber of
Commerce.
Programs to be offered
include:
* Small Business Basics: 4:30-
7:30 p.m., June 12
* Marketing Strategies: 4:30-
7:30 p.m., June 26
* Financial Forecasting: 4:30-

Classes will be held at Baptist
Medical Center Beaches, 1350
13th Avenue South, Jacksonville
Beach, conference room B
COST will be $150 for the


plans to build a fast food fran-
chise at the comer of A1A and
Marsh Landing Parkway.
If approved, a McDonald's
restaurant will replace the exist-
ing Boston Market with a busi-
ness of the same size, according
to plans.

lic and community trarnspotta-
tion and mobility issues and,
according to their mission state-
ment, "is based upon fundamen-
tal values that are as old as the
nation itself. Freedom, inde-

on Aging began the Sunshine
Bus Co. In 1999, offering addi-
tional mobility options to the
entire county population.
Sunshine buses now cover
seven routes, providing more
than 13,000 rides each month.


Lower your bills by going green


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
The average house con-
tributes twice as much to glob-
al warming as the average car
according the EPA. Comfort
Institute offers seven tips to cut
your air conditioning (AC)
bills, improve comfort and
help the environment.
1. Have your duct system
tested for air leaks. Many
assume that windows and
doors are the major cause of a
home's energy wasting air
leaks. However, research by the
Department of Energy (DOE)
shows that gaps in the typical
home's duct system are much
more significant. The DOE
states that the typical duct sys-
tem wastes 25 to 40 percent of
the energy put out by your
central heat pump or air condi-
tioner. Authorities recommend
having an AC contractor test
for leaks and then seal them
with a brushed on fiber-rein-
forced elastomeric sealant.
Duct tape usually dries out and
fails. It turns out duct tape is
great for many things, but seal-
ing ducts isn't one of them.
2. Ask your AC contractor to
perform an Infiltrometer
"blower door" test. The
Infiltrometer is a computerized
instrument originally invented
by the DOE. It pinpoints where
your home's worst air leaks are
and measures how leaky the
overall house is. Many homes
have significant air leaks into
the attic. Hot dusty air often
gets drawn in through recessed
can lights and pulled down
stairs. New sealing products are


available to fix these signifi-
cant leaks. Quality AC contrac-
.tors offer the test as part of a
"Home & Duct Performance
Checkup" that also checks
insulation levels and overall
duct performance.
3. Close your fireplace
damper. Did you remember to
close it last time you used the
fireplace? Shut it now or waste
precious cool air all summer
long.
4. Replace your air condi-
tioner or heat pump air filter.
Most systems need this done
every month to ensure safe and
efficient operation. Ask your
AC contractor for an extended
surface area whole-house air
filter that only needs to be
replaced once a year. These fil-
ters also do a far better job of
keeping your equipment and
the air in your home clean.
5. Have your air conditioner
cleaned and tuned. A pre-sea-
son tune-up is a great invest-
ment. It reduces the chances of
breakdowns in the middle of
summer and more than pays
for itself through more energy
efficient operation. Make sure
the AC contractor cleans both
.the indoor and outdoor coils
and checks refrigerant gas
charge by measuring "super-
heat" or "subcooling."
6. Consider adding attic
insulation. Attics often get up
to 140 degrees hot in the sum-
mer. In many areas the DOE
now recommends R49 insula-
tion, which is typically 18%o or
more. However, it is essential
that air leaks in the attic floor


first be sealed. If you have
HVAC equipment or ducts up
in the attic, a radiant barrier
foil or paint will help keep
your AC equipment working
properly.
7. Consider replacing your
old air conditioner or heat
pump. Just like a car, central
cooling equipment doesn't last
forever. If your system is more
than 12 years old and you
don't plan on moving to a new
home in the next few years
many authorities recommend
replacing old equipment
before it fails permanently. A
new system improves comfort,
is more dependable and creates
less air pollution. New units
are up to twice as energy effi-
cient, which saves money on
your monthly electric bills.
When replacing your AC
equipment, be sure you're
working with a quality con-
tractor. Government and utili-
ty research found that more
than 90 percent of newly
installed high efficiency sys--
tems have energy wasting mis-
takes.
Do some homework before
talking to contractors.

New firm tapped to design JB skateboard park


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Plans to construct a skateboard park in
Jacksonville Beach are moving ahead with a new
design team at the helm.
Grounds Maintenance Director Gary Meadors
with the city's Parks and Recreation department-
Tuesday confirmed that negotiations' are'under-Z
way with the Florida-based construction firm
Team Pain, Inc.
The company is also handling the construction
of the Ed Austin Skateboard Park in Jacksonville.
Spohn Ranch, Inc, a firm based out of
California that specializes in skateboard park con-
struction was originally selected to complete the
design using pre-cast features that were to be
molded and poured by the manufacturer then
transported to the site.
Meadors declined to specify what prompted city
officials to seek an alternate construction compa-
ny.
"Nothing really happened [with that firm]. We
just got to the end of that phase and opted to look
for someone in the state," he said. "The city set it
up that after the first phase we could stop and
make decisions if and when we needed to. We felt


this was the best way to go."
Meadors last August hinted that using the pre-
fabricated concrete would make it difficult to
modify the position of the amenities or resize the
park itself.
Team Pain, Inc. will utilize a more traditional
-approach to the construction of the park and will
'"ttlizeu-ah'i majority of the desigilconcepts'devel-
oped last year during a series of public meetings to
discuss the skateboard park.
"The majority will still be a street course," he
said, noting that the exact size of the park will be
determined by the cost.
The city's Community Redevelopment Agency
approved a construction budget of $375,000 to
construct the 8,000 to 10,000-square-foot skate
park in January, 2007.
An official proposal has not yet been submitted.
Meadors said an engineer will review the plans
before he brings it to the City Council for price
consideration. If approved by the City Council,
the final cost will be submitted to the Community
Redevelopment Agency for funding. The CRA
funds all capital construction projects in the
Southend Redevelopment District where the park
is planned in South Beach Park.

SFive-sport star to focus on hoops

keep on


turning


T his is a big weekend to
be a racing fan, no mat-
ter what is being raced.
Between the open-wheel cars
that will fly around
Indianapolis Speedway
Sunday afternoon to the stock
cars of NASCAR going 600
miles in Charlotte in the
evening, racing fans get more
then they can bargain for in
one day.
Think about it, you get to
see 1,100 miles of cars going
by, and it doesn't require a
trip driving from Jacksonville
to New Jersey on 1-95 and
wasting $4 a gallon on gas.
And with most people get-
ting a three-day weekend,
there's nothing better than to
cook up some burgers, down
a few beverages and hope to
see as much of Danica Patrick
as possible.
For NASCAR, it's the
longest race of the season, so
expect to see cars going
round and round for nearly
five hours. Sadly, no Danica
to look at in that one ...

About those rumors of
Hello Castroneves moving to
NASCAR: The former Dancing
with the Stars winner ruled
out making any such move,
one that other former Indy
500 winners Juan Pablo
Montoya and Dario Franchiti
have already made, by stating
he is happy with the Indy
Racing League.
Probably smart on his part.
Judging from how poorly the
other drivers that made the
switch have done, Castronev-
es would likely find more suc-
cess in harness racing than in
NASCAR ...

Speaking of horses, gotta
like the chances of seeing the
first Triple Crown winner in
30 years. In a sport that has
had loads of negative publici-
ty recently, Big Brown is one
big race away from making
something positive out of
horse racing. Should he win,
horse racing can make like
UPS and change its motto to
"What Brown did for us."...

Found out something inter-
esting today now that
American Idol is over. The
NBA is in its playoffs and the
NHL is at the Stanley Cup
finals. Had no clue. It's amaz-
ing how three months of
watching a bunch of kids
basically sing karaoke can
make one lose track of more
important things ...

Word is the NFL might
stretch its regular season to
17 games. Shouldn't happen.
Yes, everyone loves football
and would prefer a schedule
similar to baseball, but 16
games is plenty. There is a
good home-away balance
now. The only positive thing
is that if this happens (it
would replace one preseason
game), then fans can at least
see an extra game that has
meaning. At $200 a game,
they should all have meaning

Letter to the Sports Editor:
After seeing what happened
to a sports photographer in
Utah - he was struck in the
leg by a javelin at a high
school track meet - I am let-
ting you know that in no way
will I ever photograph a
javelin event as long as I work
at this newspaper. I already
risk myself enough between
the foul balls in baseball and
the late hits on the sideline
during football season. The
last thing I need is a spear
being hurled my way as I try
to get that perfect shot. Just
letting you know.


Fletcher's

Brooks is

seeking a

basketball

scholarship

By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
It's no surprise that five-
sport athlete Alexandria Brooks
made the All-Gateway
Conference team naming the
best athletes in Duval County
high school athletics. Brooks, a
Fletcher High senior, played
varsity basketball, softball, vol-
leyball, and flag football as
well as advanced to regional
competition for track.
But of all the sports Brooks
excels at, her true love remains
basketball.
"I just love the energy, the
excitement in the game,"
Brooks said.
Brooks is a point guard and
shooting guard who averaged
8.5 points and 12.7 assists per
game at Fletcher. She also plays
.on the AAU team the
Jacksonville Stingers which will
be traveling to play in a
national AAU tournament in
Ohio this summer.
Brooks is undecided where
she will attend college in the
fall because she is hoping to
land some scholarships to play
basketball. She holds a 3.05
GPA and is applying to
Jacksonville University as well
as Florida Community College
of Jacksonville arid Santa Fe
Community College.
"Alex was a very valuable
asset to the girls basketball
team," said Fletcher High head
coach.Rich Banks. "She was a
coach on the floor... When
we needed a spark Alex was
there to provide it."
Brooks started playing bas-
ketball when she was 8 years
old at a Boys and Girls Club of
America program otit t l~ '6f
Philadelphia. Whfie se ais in
third grade, the Brooks family
relocated to Mayport to "get
away from the cold" and
Brooks continued playing bas-
ketball.
She started playing softball
and volleyball in eighth grade
at Mayport Middle School and
instantly excelled. She was an
outside hitter for the Fletcher
High volleyball team and
played centerfield and short-
stop for the softball team.
She also played wide receiv-
er, quarterback and rusher for
Fletcher's flag football team
and advanced to regional com-
petition for track in the 4x100
[49.50 best time], 4x400, high
jump [five feet] and long jump
[15-4].
"I love the rush of the com-
petition," Brooks said. "As I got
older I started trying out for
different sports that my friends
were going out.for, too. Then I
met more friends through
sports."
Brooks is also involved in
community service projects
offered through Fletcher High
and her church, the Atlantic

Sharks land more former Nease coaches

Beech encourages his team

coach at the new Ponte Vedra
High beginning next fall.


FROM STAFF
Ponte Vedra High athletic
director Gene Baker hasn't had
to go far to fill some Sharks
coaching vacancies.
Tuesday's announcement
that former Nease High boys
basketball coach Bud Beech
will serve in that same capacity
at the new PV High means
thus far three head coaches
and at least one assistant have
traded in Panthers green for
Sharks blue.
Beech will also serve as dean
of students at PV High, a posi-
tion he held at Nease for four
years. The veteran basketball
coach stepped down after 23
years as Panthers head man
following the 2006-7 season.
He remained a dean at the
school, however.
Joining Beech at the new
high school will be boys golf
coach Pete Molinaro, who
guided the Panthers to a state
championship last season.
"Our school has become a
magnet for high quality teach-
ers and coaches," Baker said
Tuesday in a release announc-
ing the hirings. "While the
current district hiring climate
limits our choices to a degree,

we have been able to identify
some exceptional coaches from
within St. Johns County."
Beech and Molinaro join
coach Dave Silverberg, who
last week was announced as PV
High's new girls soccer coach
after serving in that capacity at
Nease for seven seasons.
In that time, Silverberg built
one of the premier programs in
Florida, winning four state


championships, including
back-to-back titles in 2005 and
2006. The Panthers defeated
Merritt Island, 3-0, in February
to earn the 2008 Class 4A state
title.
Following an exhaustive,
nationwide search that began
late last year and ended early
this year, the Sharks hired for-
mer NFL quarterback Mike
Loyd as the school's first foot-


ball coach.
One of Loyd's assistant
coaches is former Dallas
Cowboy Bill Bates, who was an
assistant at Nease for the past
several seasons.
The Sharks inaugural spring
football game is scheduled for
Saturday, May 31 against the
new Creekside High at Nease's
Panther Stadium with a 1 p.m.
kickoff.

"He is self

that's how he

West said. "This
is a really excit-

event."
West said he
is watching the
weather for Saturday to see if
conditions will be too stormy
to hold the contest. He said
he'll make a decision by Friday
and announce it at floridasurf-
ing.org if the contest needs to
be rescheduled.
"It's a really neat event
because the kids today are
doing all the old school

MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE





Deam led in the ring, foxhole


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
n a wrestling ring or a fox-
hole, John Deam led by
example.

His fierce competitiveness
served him well as a champi-
onship wrestler at the
University of Florida and as a
company commander at the
Battle of the Bulge.
As a college senior, Deam
captured a middleweight
wrestling title by using an
incapacitating headlock on
University of Miami opponent
George Reichgott.
According to a newspaper
account of the state tourna-
ment match, held March 30,
1934, at the St. Augustine
YMCA, "Reichgott completely
exhausted from the headlock
... collapsed and had to be
carried from the mat and the
gymnasium."
Deam won a' silver wrestling
belt at the state Amateur
Athletic Union (AAU) event,
and reportedly was "the class
of the Florida entries.."
Almost 10 years later on
Jan. 4, 1945, the former
Jacksonville Beach resident
died heroically charging a pair
of German machine gun nests
in the snow-covered forests of
the Ardennes.
For his extreme gallantry
under fire, Deam, 34, was
posthumously awarded the
Distinguished Service Cross,
the Army's second highest
decoration for heroism.


Distinguished Service Cross


A call to duty

Deam met his future wife,
Harrnet Wellington of
Jacksonille Beach, at
Jacksonville's Landon High
School in the early 1930s.
"Mother rode the train to
Landon and her uncle was the
engineer," John Deam Jr.
recalled in a recent phone
interview.
Deam Jr., now living in
Winter Garden, Fla., was 6
years old when his father was
killed leading a bayonet


charge in Belgium.
Like his younger sister,
Harriet Turner of Jacksonville
Beach, he has fuzzy memories
of a man Who left behind a
wife and three.small children
to serve his country in World
War II.
"As I grew older, I resented
the fact that he re-upped,"
Tmrner, now in her 60s, said.
"My mother tried to explain
to me that it was the times.
Men like my father saw it as
their duty. They didn't feel
that they were deserting their
family. They wanted to make a
better world for them to live
in."
Turner's father took ROTC
classes in college and was
commissioned a second lieu-
tenant in the Army Reserves.
Deam's degree in chemical
engineering, however, wasn't a
guarantee of steady employ-
ment during the Depression.
"Things were pretty tough,"
Deam Jr. said. "The best job he
could get was as a Coca-Cola
salesman."
In 1935, according to "For
God, Country and Coca-
Cola," an unauthorized histo-
ry of the soft drink giant,
Coca-Cola stock sold at $200 a
share and the popular soda
pop "held a central place in
American culture."
Deam worked out of Coca-
Cola's New York office before
the war. When he decided to
re-enlist in August 1942, he

The free event runs every
Friday night through June 13
at the SeaWalk Pavilion.
"This summer's line-up
brings you jaw-wrenching sus-
pense, a fairy tale adventure, a
romantic wartime voyage and
even a portal into another
world," said Marilyn Matejcek,
special events coordinator for
Jacksonville Beach.
"We encourage everyone to
get into the theme of each
movie and come prepared to
have fun."

Jax4kids.com will host a play-
land from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Upcoming films include
"Shrek" on Friday, May 30,
"The African Queen" on
Friday, June 6, and
"Poltergeist" on Friday, June
13.
"Jaws" is based on Peter
Benchley's best-selling novel. It
was director Stephen
Spielberg's first hit.
When initially released in
the summer of 1975, more
than 67 million Americans
went to see the movie, making
it the first summer blockbuster.
The movie was so successful
that it spawned three sequels
and a lot of knock-offs.
Nominated for Best Picture,
it won an Oscar for Best
Original Music.
"Shrek" became an immedi-
ate classic after its release in
the summer of 2001. Voiced by
Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy,
Cameron Diaz and John
Lithgow, this ogre-sized ani-


mated adventure is recom-
mended for the entire family. It
was the first film to win an
Academy Award for Best
Animated Feature.
"The African Queen" (1952)
was Humphrey Bogart's fourth
film with director John Huston
and his performance in it was
very likely the best in his career
as well as the one that finally
won him an Academy Award
for Best Actor.
Bogart's leading lady,
Katherine Hepburn, nominat-
ed for Best Actress, infused per-
sonal conflict with. a warmth,
humor, and tenderness rarely
seen in films.
Filmed on location in central
Africa, except for scenes where
Bogart and Hepburn were actu-
ally in the water, the crew
experienced various perils
including dysentery, malaria,
bacteria-filled drinking water

Deam: Leaped at the chance to join the Army paratroopers in December '42


Cont. from B-1
moved his family back to
Jacksonville Beach so they
could be closer to his wife's
family, the Wellingtons.
Harriet Deam's father, Ivan
Wellington Sr., was the city
engineer for Jacksonville
Beach. Her mother rari a tea
room out of their oceanfront
home on 9th Avenue North.
The Deams purchased a
modest home at 1171 3rd
Ave. No., in what was then
known as the Pine Grove sec-
tion of Jacksonville Beach.
"We still have the original
deed," Deam Jr. said.
Natural born leader

In the summer of 1942,
John Deam reported to the
Army's Barrage Balloon
Training Center at Camp
Tyson, Tenn.
Barrage balloons, which
were used during the D-Day
invasion, were a new form of
defensive warfare. But Deam,
who had briefly coached the
Florida wrestling team in col-
lege, sought a bigger chal-
lenge.
In December 1942, he vol-
unteered for the paratroopers,
a new infantry concept mod-
eled after a German unit.
A two-time state champion
wrestler and an alternate on
the 1932 U.S. Olympic
wrestling team, Deam was a
formidable athlete and a natu-
ral born leader.
Deam leaped at the chance
to attend the Army's then-
experimental jump school at
Fort Benning, Ga.
After earning his silver
jump wings, Deam was

Pvt. Ivan "Sonny" Wellington
Jr., the brother of Harriet
Deam, was killed in action in
Germany on Feb. 25, 1945.
Wellington was valedictorian of
the Fletcher Class of 1942.
assigned to the 513th
Parachute Infantry Regiment,
which was first activated at
Fort Benning in January 1943.
According to a unit history
at ww2-airbome.us, the 513th
trained in advanced infantry
tactics at Fort Bragg, N.C., and
Camp Mackall, N.C., before
being permanently attached
to the 17th Airborne Division
in March 1944.
Deam spent a short time
with his family, including his
newborn daughter, Connie,
before shipping off for
England in August 1944.
Turner said her father was a
gregarious individual who
rode a motorcycle and was
"the life of the party" at social
gatherings.
"Mother was not happy
that he went to war," Deam
Jr., a Fletcher High graduate,


recalled.
Before her husband went
overseas, Harriet Deam's
brother-in-law, Navy Lt.
Leonard Johnson, was shot
down in the South Pacific
near Wake Island.
The commander of a
bomber squadron, Johnson
had married Connie
Wellington in March 1943.
Weeks before his death in
May 1944, Johnson had been
cited for the Navy's
Distinguished Flying Cross.
He received the award posthu-
mously.
Charging from the front
Deam was a first lieutenant
in Easy Company, 2nd
Battalion, 513th PIR, when
the 17th Airborne was finally
committed to combat in
December 1944.
According to a unit history,
the 17th was flown to France
"in spectacular night flights,
then hastily trucked into
Belgium," around Christmas.
"On Dec. 16, 1944, the
Germans launched a surprise
offensive through the
Ardennes Forest, which
caught the Allies completely
by surprise. Upon arriving,
the 513th PIR and other ele-
ments of the 17th were
attached to Patton's Third
Army."
From Christmas to Jan. 3,
1945, the 17th "marched
through the snow" to relieve
the 11th Armored Division.
The 513th's baptism of fire
came on Jan. 3, 1945, when
Patton ordered the unit to
seize the town of Flamierge,
"where the 11th Armor had


encountered brutal resistance
from the Germans."
"Almost immediately, after
the regiments jumped off,
they encountered a relentless
fusillade of mortars," the unit
history says.
"E Company of the 513th
lost three commanders in
consecutive order while strug-
gling forward."
Deam was in a foxhole with
the lead platoon when the
order was given to fix bayo-
nets and engage enemy gun
emplacements in the woods
outside the town of Mande-St.
Etienne, Belgium.
"In a matter of minutes,
almost the entire battalion,
more than 600 trained troop-
ers, were pinned down, belea-
guered and helpless in the
snow-covered fields," former
Easy Company Lt. Dick
Manning recalled in an online
memoir.
According to Kirk Ross'
book "The Sky Men: A
Parachute Rifle Company's
Story of the Battle of the
Bulge," Deam radioed
Manning, his third platoon
commander, saying, "fix bayo-
nets, and go on in."
"Don't worry," Deam
added. "I'll start them off
myself."
According to Deam's cita-
tion for the Distinguished
Service Cross, "Lt. Deam bold-
ly led his reserve company in
a bayonet assault up an open,
snow-covered slope and suc-
ceeded in reaching the edge of
the woods.
"There when his company
was pinned down by machine
gun fire, he advanced alone
and destroyed a machine gun


nest, killing the crew with
grenades. He charged a second
gun but was killed by enemy
fire."
Manning's platoon and
another under the direction of
Lt. Samuel Calhoun followed
Deam's heroic lead over 250
yards of exposed territory and
eventually routed the enemy,
"killing or capturing 225
German soldiers," according
to Manning's memoir.
In another online remem-
brance, former Army medic
Bill Lynch described the scene
three days later at Mande-St.
Etienne, where the Army had
set up a battalion aid station.
"The noise of screaming
meanies, 88's, burp guns and
small-arms fire was continu-
ous," Lynch recalled.
"The front line was only
100 to 200 yards in front of
us. Beyond that was a frozen,
snow-covered field of 200
yards or so. On the other side
of the field, in a clump of
woods on the high ground,
was the enemy."
Lynch was describing the
gauntlet Deam had run in his
final minutes.
"From what I had seen,"
Lynch added, "I thought our
front line had been decimated
and that the enemy could
walk on through.
"Fortunately that didn't
happen because the 17th had
delivered an equally or per-
haps a more destructive
blow."
'Inspiration to his men'
Deam's remains were
returned to the states and
reburied in a family plot in


Gay, Ga. Deam's wife and
three children, then ages 6, 3
and seven months, attended
the service, which included
full military honors.
A memorial service for
Deam also was held at St.
Paul's By-the-Sea Episcopal
Church in Jacksonville Beach.
At the time of his death,
Deam had been recommend-
ed for a promotion to captain,
a title he held on the Gators
wrestling team a decade earli-
er.
In 1953, the 11-story, brick
Century Tower on the UF
campus was re-dedicated to
alumni who died in World
War II.
According to Deam's cita-
tion for the Distinguished
Service Cross, which was pre-
sented to Harriet Deam in
August 1945, Maj. Gen.
Edward Witsell wrote, "Lt.
Deam's heroic action lives on
as an inspiration to his men.
"The courage he displayed,
his fearless determination and
supreme devotion to duty are
in keeping with the highest
traditions of the service."

Memorial Day Service:
Beaches Memorial Park and
First Coast Funeral Home will

branches of the military for
Memorial Day.
The services will be May

Indy 4 adrenaline-packed fun


(SPOILER ALERT: Some set-
pieces are described in the.next-
to-last fidl paragraph; otherwise,
nothing major.)
The fourth "Indiana
SJones" movie is as much
fun as you'd hope it
would be.
But when you think about
the movie later, it holds up
like one of those bridges that
Indy and his gang manage to ..:
cross just before it collapses.
So let's cover the flaws first.
* "Indiana Jones and the
Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"
- Whew, that title is almost
as long as the movie! What's
more, since said kingdom isn't
really the movie's main point,
this might be the film to
haveits MacGuffin in the title.
* Some of the more herald-
ed actors come off as light-
weight. As a Russian villainess,
acclaimed Cate Blanchett
seems to be working out her
Natasha Fatale impression.
And while Shia LaBeouf is lik-

able enough, he proves it
takes more than a pompadour,
a cap, and a sneer to emulate
Marlon Brando in "The Wild
One."
* Even my 11-year-old son
noted that the movie's major
set-piece is at least partially
lifted from the recent
"National Treasure 2." And
the movie's climactic fire-
works - like the similar end-
ing of "Raiders of the Lost
Ark" - practically show us the
scriptwriter ("Jurassic Park's"


David Koepp) shrugging his
shoulders once he reaches the
end.
All of that said, the movie
rates as one of Indy's best
adventures.
The movie brings Indy
(Harrison Ford, aging quite
well) under the scrutiny of
both the FBI and Russia's KGB
when he inadvertently aids an
old pal in the pursuit of the
titular and powerful Crystal
Skull..
Despite his best effort to
stick his neck out for no one,
Indy gets caught up in the
hunt for the famed orb.
(Oh, and Indy's love interest
from "Raiders," Marion [Karen
Allen], makes a welcome
return. But far be it from me
to disclose how she gets
woven into the'plot.)
The movie is set in 1957
and makes vague nods to that
era's interests in
McCarthyism, UFO's, and psy-
chic power. But all the
"Happy Days" blather is even-


tually ditched in favor of
heart-pounding stunts, and in
that department, the movie is
well up to the level of its
predecessors.
The thrills include: an
entire fake city that almost
gets Indy nuked (the movie's
least plausible set-piece); car
chases and swordfights that
seem homages to exec-produc-
er George Lucas' "Star Wars"
series; and the biggest bleepin'
colony of killer ants you'll
ever see.
Like the famed dancing.
bear, the truth that a new
Indy adventure is no longer
novel, is less impressive than
the fact that Ford, Lucas, and-
director Steven Spielberg
pulled it off at all. Like its
three-quel prequel, "Crystal
Skull" is adrenaline-packed
fun.
"Indiana Jones and the
Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"
is rated PG-13 for adult lan-
guage, violence, and some
intense imagery.

'Gillian' caps its run this weekend


by CLIFF RIGSBEE
CONTRIBUTOR
"To Gillian on Her 37th
Birthday," a comedy/drama by
Michael Brady and directed by
Carson Merry Baillie, opened
to a nearly full house on
Friday, May 9.
In the play, David, a widow-
er (played by Wesley Nielson)
and his teenage daughter
Rachel (Morgan Williams) live
in a small-beach house.
Rachel's best friend Cindy


(Jenna Downs) has an adoles-
cent crush on David.
Gillian's sister, Ester (Karen
Garrett) and husband Paul
(oe Fine) try to help David by
introducing him to a young
woman named Kevin (Sarah
Pinter).
David is still grieving from
the tragic boating accident
which killed his wife Gillian
Rebecca Williams.) There are
several surprises here so I
won,t spoil it with any more


details
The stage is set with a small
shingled cottage opening onto
the beach. The playing surface
of the stage is covered with
real sand and it blends into a
large beach mural which
includes a lighthouse in the
distance.
Garrett, a frequent ABET
performer, uses her terrific act-
ing range to full effect in this
play. Fine, an ABET regular,
provides the comic relief with


gusto.
Gillian is beautifully played
by Williams, who painted the
stage scenes.
Morgan Williams, Downs
and Pinter are making their
ABET debuts.
I highly recommend this
very entertaining and satisfy-
ing production. It runs at 8
p.m. today and Saturday at
716 Ocean Blvd., Atlantic
Beach. Call 249-7177 for reser-
vations.

ROUND


THE


Nine steps to sell your house with feng shui


he real estate market in
most of the country has
been especially chal-
lenging this year because of
everything from shady lend-
ing to over-building. As a
result, I've received numer-
ous emails from around the
country from Realtors and
homeowners alike telling me
how they've used informa-
tion on my feng shui website
(redlotusletter.com) about
how to sell a house with feng
shui, to move houses in
record time.
Feng shui is often called
the Chinese art of placement
because of its rules for the
way a home is arranged. If
arranged properly a house
can help you have good
health, increase your wealth,
bring you business opportu-
nities or help you sell a
house.
One email from a Realtor
in Minnesota said his high-
end client did everything on
my list and sold a very pricey
home in a week - and asked
to put my article on his web-


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST

site for his other clients.
Another was from real-estate
challenged Nevada. A woman
wrote her house had been for
sale for over a year. After
implementing the changes,
here family was packed up
and in another house in less
than six weeks. This is very
rewarding to hear, too, so I
thought I'd pass along these
tips because it's prime home-


selling season and if you
have your home on the mar-
ket, you need every advan-
tage to help you get it sold.
1. Engage the senses.
Prospective buyers must be
engaged in every way possi-
ble. Use these ideas to engage
the senses of buyers at your
home.
Looks good: Clear off all
the tops of everything
(dressers, counters, shelves,
etc.). Draw the eye to the
corner diagonal to the door
in each room. This makes the
room feel larger and makes
buyers focus on the good
luck area of the room.
Feels good: Make sure all
entries and rooms are open
and that there are no mirrors
opposite any door. Keep your
home from being "dead still"
by keeping something mov-
ing, such as ceiling fans.
Sounds good: Place a foun-
tain close to the front of the
house or keep music playing


at all times, especially in the
northwest corner of the
house or living room.
Smells good: According to
feng shui, earthy scents are
the most appealing to the
widest range of people. So,
opt for cinnamon and pine
scents rather than floral or
vanilla scents.
2. Sales are made by first
impressions. The front door
is the most important area of
the house in feng shui. Keep
it immaculate, with lights
turned on in front and in the
foyer, add a new doormat,
and have something flanking
either side of the front door,
such as two pots of lush,
healthy plants or flowers.
3. Be ready to move. Buy
the new owners a small gift
such as a new front door mat
or crystal candy dish filled
with chocolates. Perhaps
more importantly, start "pre-
moving." Pack up about 25
to 30 percent of your house


so it appears roomy and
uncluttered, and put your
belongings in a storage unit.
From a feng shui perspective,
it symbolically creates room
for another family to move
in - and you to move on.
4. Correctly place your "for
sale" sign. Make sure the "for
sale" sign is to the right of
the front door as you look at
it.
5. Make a "welcome
vignette." Have a table in the
foyer, on the right as you
enter the front door, with
business cards, literature, a
bowl of chocolates or cinna-
mon candies, and a small
vase of fresh flowers. Put this
on a red-colored cloth. Make
sure your Realtor's business
cards and flyers are in an
acrylic holder so they aren't
"laying down" on the job.
6. Energize the helpful peo-
ple sector. The northwest cor-
ner of a home is considered
the "helpful people" area.


Activate it with music play-
ing here to promote a sale.
7. Focus on the kitchen. In
feng shui, kitchens are pros-
perity and health areas. Insist
on clear counters; a clean,
organized pantry; and waste-
baskets and knives out of
sight. Place a small, lush
plant and jar full of cookies
on the counter.
8. Get growing. Make sure
there are no plants touching
the house (this draws energy
away from the house), no
spindly plants (it makes the
house seem like it's dying,
too) and no dead plants
whatsoever.
9. Insist that bathroom
doors remain shut. Buyers
should never see a toilet
when they enter a house or a
room. Toilet lids should
remain down and doors to
bathrooms should always be
closed


There are many


recommendations


this week in wines


We've tasted so many
good wines recently,
that this week we
are playing catch up.
Enough excuses. Here's
some good juice for everyone
to try:
Del Bondio Oakville
Syrah 2003 ($15). We love
the abundant, jammy fruit in
this delicious and well-priced
syrah from Napa Valley. It
has been one of our great
discoveries in recent months.
Aged in oak for a long 18
months, it has good com-
plexity for a syrah at this
price. Ripe plum and black-
berry flavors dominate with
nuances of mint and choco-
late. Thanks to fine tannins,
you can enjoy this now or
age it for several years.
Clayhouse Vineyard
Adobe Red 2007 ($15). This
Paso Robles producer makes a
red and a white blend, both
of which are excellent values.
This red from the Central
Coast includes zinfandel,
syrah, petite sirah and mal-
bec - an amazing basket of
fruit. Simple plum and blue-
berry fruit, and easy tannins
and a touch of oak. Great for
grilled foods. �
Colome Estate Malbec
2006 ($25). Blended with
some tannat and cabernet
sauvignon, this Argentina
malbec has more complexity
than most. Intense blackber-
ry, licorice and allspice aro-
mas followed by blackberry,
cassis and spice flavors.
Concannon Vineyard
Petite Sirah 2005 ($15). This
is a great value if you like
your red wines big and bold.
Fruit forward with ripe black-
berry flavors and notes of
vanilla and spice. Blended
with a bit of merlot, petite
verdot and mixed reds.
Rosemount Traiminer
Riesling 2007 ($10). Here's a
steal in the simple riesling
market. From Australia, it has
apricot and honeysuckle aro-
mas with citrus flavors.
Slightly sweet.
Rodney Strong Vineyards
Alexander Valley Cabernet
Sauvignon 2004 ($25). Big
and generous plum and spice
flavors, with round and rich
texture to make it enjoyable
now. Excellent value.
Rodney Strong Vineyards
Symmetry 2004 ($55). Rich
blackberry and cassis flavors
with hint of chocolate and
spice. Fruit forward and
packed with soft fruit flavor.
Redwood Creek Pinot
Noir 2006 ($15). The wine is
made in California but from
grapes grown in the
Languedoc-Roussillon region
of France. Simple red cherry
and strawberry flavors with a
smooth texture.
Gabbiahno Alleanza 2005
($35). This Italian blend of
merlot (70 percent), san-
giovese and cabernet sauvi-
gnon is a great value for
those of you looking for a
complex wine for under $50.
Huge aromas of sweet cher-
ries, cinnamon and pepper.
Cherry and blackberry flavors
with spice and tobacco notes.


TOM MAROUARmund
PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'

Velvet texture make it a quaf-
fable wine to serve alongside
meat and cheese.
Ruffino II Ducale 2004
($24). We love interesting
Italian blends and this is a
beauty. Made up of primarily
sangiovese (80 percent), mer-
lot and cabernet sauvignon,
the wine has cherry and
plum aromas, blackberry and
dark chocolate flavors, soft
tannins and long finish. It
would go well with parmi-
giano reggiano or pecorine
romano cheeses.
Primus 2005 ($21).
Vermonte's fabled winemaker
Agustin Huneeus believes in
Chile's carmenere grape and
has been determined to make
a world-class wine from the
indigenous grape. It stands
out nicely in this blend of 17
percent carmenere, 32 per-
cent cabernet sauvignon and
51 percent merlot.
Characterized by pronounced
spices, the Primus has good
body, cherry notes and big
tannins.
Domaine Phillippe &
Vincent Jaboulet Syrah
2005 ($15). Here is a simple
red wine suitable for sipping
or alongside pasta, hamburg-
ers or other simple fare.
Bright berry fruit. If you
want something more com-
plex, try the Crozes-
Hermitage Rouge ($28) from
the same region. More gutsy,
but still abundant in ripe
fruit.
Henry's Drive Shiraz 2006
($36). Mouth-filling plum
and boysenberry fruit with a
hint of chocolate and mint.
Layered, complex flavors
with good depth - serve
with meats and grilled foods.
The 2005 reserve shiraz
($54) is a phenomenal wine,
albeit more expensive.
Sbragia Family Vineyards
Gino's Vineyard Zinfandel
($28). From the Dry Creek
region, this fruit-packed zin-
fandel tantalizes the palate
with juicy blackberry and
raspberry flavors, and hints
of clove and black pepper.
J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
($35). J. Lohr makes fruit-for-
ward wines and this one is
no exception. Layered, fleshy
fruit flavors with aromas of
blackberries, cedar, mint and
licorice. Quite a mouthful.

Nothing feels as good as putting up a "sold" sign when you have your home for sale. But selling a house today can be tough.
Feng shui can help a house sell faster and easier when buyers make some thoughtful changes.

PRAYER OF APPLICATION
TO THE HOLY SPIRIT "Holy
Spirit you who solve all problems,
who light all roads so that I can attain
my goal. You who give me the divine
gift to forgive and forget all evil
against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me. I want in
this short prayer to thank you for all
things and to confirm once again
that I never want to be separated
from you, even and in spite of all
material illusion I wish to be with you
in eternal Glory. Thank you for your
mercy toward me and mine." The
person must say this prayer for
3 consecutive days. After 3 days the
favor requested will be granted even
if it may appear difficult. This prayer
must be published immediately after
the favor is granted without
mentioning the favor and your initials
should appear at the bottom.
