Cops seek vandals in spray-painting at Nease


FROM STAFF
Police are looking for three
suspects who spray-painted
drawings and words, some of
them slanderous, lewd or vul-
gar, on numerous surfaces at
Nease High School.
Principal Linda Thomson
said she was "saddened" when
she walked around the campus
Thursday morning and saw
spray paint on brick walls, con-
crete courtyards, metal sculp-


tures, satellite dishes, windows
and in the football stadium.
The word "Bears" was paint-
ed over "Nease" on the front of
the stadium's press box,
Thomson said in a telephone
interview Thursday.
There were other references
to rival Bartram Trail High
School, whose mascot is the
Bears, said Sgt. Chuck Mulligan
with the St. Johns County
Sheriff's Office.


Mulligan said video from sur-
veillance cameras was being
examined, and investigators
would separate images of the
vandals, who are believed to be
three males.
Two of them appear to be
white, and all are wearing
clothing that hides them to
some degree, he said.
Damage, estimated at $3,000,
will pay for labor and chemi-
cals to remove most of the


paint, although some repaint-
ing may be necessary where.
existing words were covered by
the spray paint, he said.
School colors of both Nease
and Bartram Trail were used in
the felony vandalism, Mulligan
said, and students at both
schools were being questioned
for information by the school
resource deputies, he said.
In an emergency telephone
message to Nease parents


Thursday morning, Thomson
cautioned that any retaliation
"is not a good idea."
The damage comes just over
a week before Nease's gradua-
tion June 7, a time when high
schools sometimes see
"pranks" by seniors.
"Sometimes kids do really
dumb things at this time of
year," she said.
"In this very tough budget
year, where teachers are being


displaced or even let go, to
expend or funds on such a
needless expense is saddening
for everyone in St. Johns
County," she said in her mes-
sage.
Anyone with information is
asked to call the sheriff's tip
line at 1-888-277-8477. Tipsters
can remain anonymous and
may be eligible for a reward,
Mulligan said.


PV evacuation done


in roundabout way


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
Hurricane season begins Sunday: Do
you know where your evacuation
route is?
The only east-west hurricane evacu-
ation route in Ponte Vedra Beach has
an unusual feature, not only for an
evacuation route but also for roads in
general.
That feature is a roundabout, a sin-
gle-lane traffic circle at the intersec-
tion of County Road 210 and Mickler
Road.
Although the roundabout is expect-
ed to handle as much as if not more
traffic than would a traffic signal, it
presents a conundrum to police, who
may have to help with any evacua-
tion. ;
"None of us have any experience on
roundabouts in any major evacua-


tion," Col. Art May with the St. Johns
County Sheriff's Office said this week.
"Not everybody's got these things
right now."
Joe Stephenson, director of Public
Works for St. Johns County, agrees.
"Roundabouts in this country are
relatively new and relatively unusual,"
Stephenson said in a telephone inter-
view Thursday, noting that in St.
Johns County there are about 100 traf-
fic signals "and only a couple of
roundabouts."
"And there is still discussion and
debate among designers as to how
roundabouts should be designed," he
said.
There also has been discussion and
debate among some Ponte Vedra
Beach residents about whether the

Ocean Palms second graders in Cindy Bomar and Michele Frecks classes create a collective painting
Thursday at the school. The "action painting" exercise is part of a study on Jackson Pollock and other abstract
expressionist painters, which is part of Children's Access to Art Program funded by the Ponte Vedra Public
Education Foundation. Look for a story in Wednesday's Ponte Vedra Leader.



Charter on Aug. 26 ballots


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
St. Johns County Commissioners
Thursday approved an ordinance
that will let voters decide whether to
change to a charter form of govern-
ment.
The vote was 4-0, with
Commissioner Jim Bryant absent.
The item will be placed on ballots
for the Aug. 26 primary.
At a special meeting in St.
Augustine Thursday afternoon,
commissioners reviewed changes
that had been made in the charter
document over the past several
months.
The biggest changes removed
three issues from the charter itself
and placed them on the ballot as
separate issues.
Those provisions would change
County Commission races to non-
partisan; would limit commissioners
to two, four-year terms and would
limit construction to 35 feet of
height in the area east of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
If any or all of those issues are
approved and the charter is
approved, they will be added to the
charter as amendments, explained
Patrick McCormack, county attor-
ney.

County offers residents drug card


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
All residents of St. Johns
County soon will be able to
get a free drug card that will
provide an average savings of
20 percent off the price of
commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards, which will be
available June 9, may be used
by all county residents,
regardless of age, income or
existing health coverage.
An estimated 90 percent of
the county's pharmacies will
accept the card, and a
national network of more
than 59,000 participating
retail pharmacies also will
honor it, according to a news
release from St. Johns
County.


The prescription drug pro-
gram is made available
through the National
Association of Counties
(NACo).
That offers average savings
of 20 percent off the retail
price of commonly pre-
scribed drugs.
"The NACo prescription
discount card will offer sig-
nificant savings for the unin-
sured and underinsured resi-
dents of our county," Karen
Pan, public affairs specialist
for St. Johns County, said in
the news release.
"Even those who have pre-
scription coverage may use
the card to save money on
drugs that are not covered by


their health plan," Pan said.
"Residents do not have to
be Medicare beneficiaries to
be eligible for this program,"
she said.
SThere will be no cost to
county taxpayers for NACo
nor St. Johns County to make
these money-saving cards
available to residents, accord-
ing to the release.
The cards will be available
beginning June 9 at branches
of the St. Johns County
Library System, tax collector
offices, the Health
Department and various
other locations.
A complete list of locations
and more information is
available on the County web


site by visiting
www.sjcfl.us/cards.
"Using the NACo prescrip-
tion discount card is easy,"
said Pan. "A cardholder will
simply present it at a partici-
pating pharmacy. There is no
enrollment form, no mem-
bership fee and no restric-
tions or limits on frequency
of use. Cardholders and their
family members may use the
card any time their prescrip-
tions are not covered by
insurance."
The discount card program
is administered by Caremark
Rx, Inc.


Deputies would be stationed at roundabout
A A.I . -r-1


EVACUATION, from A-1
roundabout will be adequate during an evacuation.
Mickler and 210 are both two lanes, as is the road leading
to the four-lane bridge.
The subject has come up more than once at recent meetings
of the Ponte Vedra Municipal Service Dfstrict (MSD), and at
least one trustee has had discussions with May on the subject.
"The biggest question that they had was, will that one road
,go one way [during an evacuation]?" May said in a telephone
interview Wednesday.
That is, will 210 from the roundabout to the Intracoastal
Waterway bridge be turned into a westbound-only road?
The short answer is "No," said May, noting that the east-
bound lane would have to remain open for emergency vehi-
cles.
"It all is left up to us (SJSO) to make sure we adequately staff
the intersections with traffic control . . . to try to move the
people off the barrier islands," May said in a May 9 e-mail
message to MSD trustee Doug Crane.
"We are okay with plans right now, but we are fine tuning
them based on the best known population counts and road-
way configurations," May said.
Nocatee Parkway, which connects to 210 west of the bridge,
will be used for evacuation, and May said in his e-mail that
future road work, including an overpass over U.S. 1, may
"expedite the [evacuating] traffic to the interstate."
May said by telephone that deputies will be stationed at the
Ponte Vedra Beach roundabdut if an evacuation is ordered
and will "make sure that it [traffic] does flow.
"The key, to us," May said, "is if everybody heeds the warn-
ings early."

Ponte Vedra High School to host


Creekside in Spring Football Classic


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
There is no school. There
are no students. The''sod i!
too new to walk on. But,
Ponte Vedra High School will
play a spring classic football
game this Saturday at 1 p.m.
"The expectation of our
community has always been
that there would be a spring
2008 football game at Ponte
Vedra High School," said
Craig Speziale, principal at
the soon-to-open St. Johns
County High School. "I
sensed the level of excitement
for the game growing ever
since we began practice back
in early May."
While Ponte Vedra will host
Creekside High School, the
other new player in the St.
Johns County School District
athletic arena, the site of the
game will be the campus of
long time football participant,
Nease High School.
"We are so grateful for the
opportunity and cooperation
Coach [Ted] Barbato and
Coach [Danny] Cowgill have
afforded us in staging this, the
first ever athletic event in our
school's history," said Gene
Baker, athletic director for PV
High.
"Neither the PVHS nor
Creekside field is ready for
play, and the county parks,


department can't accommo-
,date, seating for the atten-
'darce wve anticipate."
Indeed, the Saturday after-
noon start is rarely-charted
territory for high school foot-
ball in Northeast Florida.
"We wanted- to give both
the Creekside and Ponte
Vedra communities the best
opportunity to attend the
game without interfering or
creating a hardship for any of
the other county schools,"
explained Baker. "We're hop-
ing for great weather and
great football for the unveil-
ing of the two new football
programs."
Gates will open at noon to
allow fans a glimpse at pre-
game warm-ups for the 1 p.m.
kickoff. The game itself will
resemble a regular season
game in length, with four, 12-
minute quarters, but some
concessions have been made
to minimize injury risk in
areas the teams may not, as
yet, had time to fully address.
"The main difference will
be that we won't have live
special teams. Many injuries
occur in the return game in all
levels of football," notes PVHS
head coach and former NFLer,
Mike Loyd, "and [Creekside
head] Coach [Greg] Stanton
and I thought it best not to


expose our young rosters to
that situation.. Additionally,
it gives us more practice time
to prepare our defense and
offense which is where we
want to focus our evaluation
at this time."
Around the event, the two
schools are anticipating a
buzz of excitement during the
week leading up to the game.
According to Baker, "The
community event atmosphere
is to take the emphasis off
funding the new programs for
a day.
"Our respective booster
clubs have worked extremely
hard to supplement what the
district has provided for start-
up purchases, and we would
like for everyone to enjoy this
one afternoon for what it is,
the first football game for the
two new schools in the coun-
ty, not a fund-raising event.
That said, we understand the

How are roundabouts used?

and traffic signals, roundabouts
are a type of circular intersec-
tion that can significantly
improve traffic flow and safety.
Where roundabouts have been
installed, motor vehicle crashes have declined by about 40 per-
cent, and those involving injuries have been reduced by about
80 percent. Crash reductions are accompanied by significant
improvements in traffic flow, thus reducing vehicle delays, fuel
consumption, and air pollution.

How do roundabouts differ from older traffic circles and
rotaries?
Modern roundabouts are much smaller than older traffic cir-
cles and rotaries and require vehicles to negotiate a sharper curve
to enter, thus helping reduce potential .crashes.
Do drivers favor roundabouts?
Drivers may be skeptical, or even opposed, to roundabouts
when they are proposed. However, those opinions often change
when drivers become familiar with roundabouts.

How common are roundabouts in the United States?
The first modern roundabouts in the United States were con-
structed in Nevada in 1990. Since that time, approximately
1,000 have been built. By comparison, there are about 20,000
roundabouts in France, 15,000 in Australia, and 10,000 in the
United Kingdom.

OPINION


OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH

A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY

NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES


e a --- --


May 30, 2008


The Leader's Opinion

Hurricane season requires
planning by everyone
The warnings begin Sunday.
June 1 marks the start of "Watch the weather fore-
cast season", aka hurricane season in these parts.
The possibility of high winds, torrential rains and
massive storm surges threatening our coastline cap-
tures the attention
Well in advance of any storm, though, residents are
warned to plan ahead for possible storms.
This week, Governor Charlie Crist joined state and
local emergency managers and the Florida .Retail
Federation to promote Florida Hurricane Preparedness
Week, May 25-31.
Residents have been advised to secure flashlights,
portable radios, tarps, batteries, medications, ice
chests, portable generators, carbon monoxide detec-
tors, storm shutter devices and pet carriers and sup-
plies. (For more information see
www.FloridaDisaster.org.)
While residents plan, we would suggest that some
officials could as well.
This community still does not know how evacuation
will proceed once winds gust to 45 miles per hour and
the tall bridges are shut down. This year the new, tall
span at Beach Boulevard has replaced the shorter
bridge that, during previous hurricanes, was the only
route left open when Butler and' Atlantic boulevard
bridges had to be closed due to wind.
Transportation officials have been mum on the mat-
ter in recent years. This year, though, some answers
must be provided, otherwise people will be trapped on
the island when winds hit 45 mph.
It has also been a couple of years since residents in
the various Beach communities were issued passes to
expedite returning after an evacuation. Some people
may know where their passes are these days, but many
have -lost them or never got one in the first place.
Seems like now would be a good time to let residents
know how to get one. It's clear that there is still plen-
tv of planning to be done - by citizens and their gov-

From April 16, 2008 to
May 6, 2008 local area Taco
Bell restaurants teamed up
with the Boys and Girls
Clubs of Northeast Florida
in the 8th annual "Bells for
Kids" fundraiser campaign.
For the past eight years
members of the Northeast
Florida community have
gone to Taco Bell restau-
rants and donated a dollar
or more to BGCNF. Through
their dollar or more dona-
tions, donors were able to
place their names on paper

played in the participating
restaurants.
This year with the help of
Taco Bell and the Northeast

$23,000 dollars was raised
for the cause. One hundred

be used to help local kids in

Over the past eight years
the "Bells for Kids" program
has provided more than
$173,000 to BGCNF, mak-
ing Northeast Florida one of
the largest supporters of the
Boys and Girls Club
throughout the entire Taco
Bell system.
For over 45 years, BGCNF
has worked on the front
lines of youth develope-
ment, helping young peo-
plefrom disadvantaged eco-
nomic, social and family
circumstances. Our nation-
ally recognized youth devel-
opement strategy is empow-
ering over 8,000 Northeast
Florida children in twelve
locations throughout

building brighter futures for
themselves and for our
community.
On behalf of the thou-

of Governors and youth

thanks to the Northeast

their ability to show their

our organization. Thank
you for sending the message
to our members that their

Alternatives

taking a trip

To the editor:
I regularly travel to a store
where cereal is considerably
less than the $4 a box cited
by BEAM. Thankfully, I can
afford the gas (thanks to my
Hybrid) needed to drive to
said store. Apparently
many of us are unable to do
so.
Wouldn't it be nice if we
had such a store locally to
provide basic necessities at
affordable prices while also


providing jobs enabling
people to get back on their
feet? It has been my experi-
ence that many of the peo-
ple who previously fought
such a store are the same
ones whose "compassion"
for our lower-income citi-
zens forces them to shop
locally at higher prices.

Senior Center to honor Bennie Furlong


FROM STAFF
The Beaches Senior Citizen
Center will be named in honor
of former Jacksonville Beach
City Councilwoman and long-
time volunteer Bennie
Furlong.
A ceremony to rename the
center the Bennie Houser
Furlong Center will be held
Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. The pub-
lic is invited to attend the pro-
gram, which will be held at the
center, located at 281 19th
Avenue South.
The dedication ceremony
will be hosted by Jacksonville
Mayor John Peyton,
Jacksonville Beach Mayor
Fland Sharp and Jacksonville
City Council member Art
Graham.
At the ceremony, Navy Band


Southeast will give a concert
featuring Big Band music.
Furlong is being recognized
for her advocacy of seniors and
her work with Dial-A-Ride,
which is based at the center.
She has been president of the
Beaches Council on Aging for
the last 10 years.
"Through her exceptional
leadership and remarkable
dedication to service, Ms.
Furlong epitomizes what it
means to be a good citizen,"
said Jacksonville Mayor
Peyton. "Her energy and pas-
sion will be felt for years to
come by those who visit the
center."
"Bennie Furlong was instru-
mental from the start in mak-
ing this center possible," said
Jacksonville Beach Mayor


Furlong


Fland Sharp. "Renaming the
center in her honor is a fitting
tribute to her lifetime contri-
butions and dedication to the
beaches community, and to
the senior citizen population


in general."
A Jacksonville native and
resident of the Beaches for 52
years, Furlong has been hon-
ored at the local and state lev-
els numerous times for her
efforts in the areas of educa-
tion, community service,
preservation, government,
women's leadership, senior
leadership, humanitarianism
and race relations.
As a youngster she volun-
teered to help process Ration
Cards during World War II and
served as a "Donut Dolly" for
the American Red Cross in
1945. Following retirement,
Furlong turned her energy to
volunteer work throughout
the community. She helped
establish the Beaches Soup
Kitchen, now known as the


Mission House and still regu-
larly delivers hot food to the
elderly through Meals on
Wheels.
Furlong served 16 years on
the Jacksonville Beach City
Council. Her accomplish-
ments include a tree ordinance
which provides guidelines for
developers. She was a public
school teacher for 41 years.
The 3,600-square-foot center
contains a multi-purpose
room, a full kitchen, rest-
rooms, offices, and activity
rooms. At a 1979 Jacksonville
Beach City Council meeting,
various citizens first broached
the need for a recreation cen-
ter for senior citizens at the
Beach. In August 1987, the
Jacksonville Beach City
Council, which included


Furlong, offered the county a
49-year lease on the land for
the center at a rate of $10 a
year. The county paid for con-
struction using U.S.
Community Development
Block Grant dollars.
Construction started in 1989
and was completed on July 1,
1989.
Operated by the City of
Jacksonville. Adult Services
Division, the center offers
nutrition programs and meals,
fitness and wellness opportu-
nities, presentations and spe-
cial guests, dancing, games,
arts and crafts, shopping
excursions and more.

Miss Florida brings message of smart decision-making


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER

The decisions Kylie Williams made
in middle school have shaped the out-
come of her life.
As part of a "Right Decisions, Right
Now" program, the current Miss
Florida Tuesday told a cafeteria full of
Fletcher Middle School girls that the
decisions she made at their age have
made her the person she is today.
"You can be whatever you want if
you start making the right decisions,"
said Williams, Florida State
University senior and singer who has
opened for several country music con-
certs, including Rascal Flats, Toby
Keith and Lynryd Skynryd.
By middle school, Williams decided
she wanted to "be somebody."
But at 15, Williams suffered a severe
burn that melted three layers of skin
off her face.
"At first I thought I was blind," she
said. "But then I realized that it was
my forehead skin hanging over my
eyes."
After a leave of absence from school,
one of her friends invited Williams to
a party to earn back some "cool
points."
When Williams learned there would
be drugs and alcohol at the party, she
turned down the invitation.
"It would have been the first time in
my life I would have made a bad deci-
sion and it could have ruined my life,"
she told the girls.
Williams set out to become


Kylie Williams

Valedictorian of her high school and
would not be swayed by peer pressure.
She did not know at the time she had
more obstacles to face.
A group of girls who disliked
Williams tried to prevent her from
becoming Valedictorian by engaging in
a fight. The school Williams attended


had a policy that restricted anyone
involved in a fight from participating
in graduation ceremonies.
If Williams had made the decision to
defend herself and fight back, she
would have been banned from her
graduation ceremony. She did not
fight back.
As a result, .she went on to become
Valedictorian and attend college.
Williams told the students she now
has three job offers on the table with a
starting annual salary of $70,000.
"Because of the choices I've made in
life, I'm set for life," she said.
She saw the girl who attacked her
several years later.
"Nine years later, [she] was handing
me my change at a gas station," said
Williams, who at the time, was on her
way to meet with the governor of
Florida.
Williams has also since discovered
being a burn victim served a greater
purpose in her life.
After starring in a reality show for
Miss America contestants, Williams
confessed to other co-stars that she
was severely burned underneath her
makeup.
The show's producers wanted her to
share her story with everyone.
"When I had been burned, I asked
'why?' Because it was in my destiny to
inspire burn victim's across the World
as a burn-victim beauty queen."
"If there's something going on in
your life that 's not working out,
there's a reason for it. There's a reason
for everything in your life."


The My Safe Florida Home program was designed to help Floridian homeowners learn how to

harden their homes to better protect themselves and their families from windstorm damage.


"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!"

Christ Episcopal Church,
Ponte Vedra Beach.
She had lived in the
Sanctuary Community in
Jacksonville Beach for the past
15 years. She and her husband
moved from Atlanta to the
Beach to be closer to their
grandchildren and daughters.
She was an accomplished
artist, but painting was her
passion. She loved to paint the
birds that landed in her back-
yard or on the canal, the dunes
with sawgrass, the seashore
and ocean. This was a perfect
place for her to do that, the
family said.
Her garage walls were her
gallery, and she gave her paint-
ings to friends and family who
admired them. She knew no
strangers and made friends eas-
ily with everyone who passed
by her yard, waving and saying
hello to all.
She was a wonderful Mom
who wore the britches in the
family and watched out for all
of us in her caring and loving
way, said the family. She will
be missed by everyone who
knew her, including her care-
giver and companion, Carol
Lamb, and will live on in the
hearts of her friends and fami-
ly.
She is survived by her three
daughters; son-in-law, David
Merry; grandson, Tilson Allen-
Merry; and granddaughter,
Alana Merry.
We will miss you, Mom; we
will see you and Dad again
sometime, the family said.
She would love knowing she
is helping a fellow painter
achieve their dream. A scholar-

attending summer classes in
painting is being established at

memory. Donations can be

OBITUARIES


Patricia M. Hoffman, 52, ended
her decade long battle against breast cancer
on May 21, 2008. Pat was a cherished
mother, wife, aunt and friend.
Born in Washington, DC on February
S'" ' 11, 1956 to Frederick and Dorothea Rowe.
Pat was raised with her 6 brothers and
sisters in Maryland, moving to the San
Francisco Bay area while in high school.
She served her country in the United States
Navy, and was honorably discharged as
Radioman Third Class. In 1977, Pat
. married her husband of 31 years, Richard
G.. Hoffman which began her life as a Navy
,' wife. As they traveled to California,
Massachusetts, Virginia and Jacksonville,
she steadfastly pursued her goal of
becoming a nurse, even while raising two young daughters and meeting all the
demands of her husband's career. The first milestone in reaching her goal was
met when she graduated from UNF in 1984.
Her husband's career happily brought the family back home to Jacksonville
Beach in 1992 where she was able to use that stability to turn her full attention to
pursuing her next goal of becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife. She earned her
Masters of Science in Nursing in 1994 from the University of Florida and for the
next fourteen years, Pat helped bring joy to hundreds of families in Jacksonville
by providing compassionate care to the patients of several OB/GYN practices.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband Richard G. Hoffman, Jr. and
daughters Christine Hoffman and Linda Hoffman as well as her family and
extended family of "nieces" and friends. Her strength, wit and caring spirit will
be remembered by all those who knew her and knew of her.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to those who helped Pat
throughout her lengthy battle but most especially Dr. Tom Gaddis and the caring
nurses and staff of Hematology/Oncology Associates. The family is especially
grateful to the caring doctors, nurses and staff at the Baptist, Downtown MSICU
and the McGraw Center of the Community Hospice of Northeast Florida who
helped guide our journey in the final stages.
A Memorial Service, led by Reverend Gabe Goodman, will be conducted at
3PM (TODAY), May 30, 2008 at Community Presbyterian Church in Atlantic
Beach. The family wishes to honor her dedication to the nursing profession by
requesting that gifts in lieu of flowers be sent to the University of North Florida
Foundation, designated to the Pat Hoffman Memorial Scholarship Fund at UNF,
1 UNF Drive, Suite 39/3032, Jacksonville, Florida 32224-7699. Arrangements
entrusted to Hardage-Giddens Funeral Home, 1701 Beach Blvd, Jacksonville

BUSINESS


Beach Marine seeks permit from JB l


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The owners of a Jacksonville
Beach business are sounding off
about the city's failure to renew a
permit that allows outdoor
music.
Representatives of Beach
Marine located at 2309 Beach
Boulevard are seeking resolution
to the ongoing request for a
sound permit.
David Siddall, chief financial
officer for Beach Marine,
appealed to the City Council last
November to help resolve the
issue out of court.
Six months later, Siddall said
the permit is still pending with-
out any explanation for the
delay.
"It's hard to -believe [this
much time has passed] for some-
thing as simple as a sound per-
mit," he said Tuesday. "The
thing that is the most trouble-
some is that after all this time we
still have received nothing in
writing that says 'yes, here's your
permit' or 'no, we are not going
to give you the permit and here's
why'. The just won't go on
record with anything definite."
In September, 2007, Beach
Marine submitted an application
to the City Clerk to renew the
business' sound permit.All of the
permits were automatically
renewed except for the sound
and banquet hall catering per-
mits.
Siddall said the business
received nothing from the city
to indicate that the permits were
suspended or revoked.'
According to Siddall, City
Manager George Forbes last
November said the issue could


be resolved within 30 days if
Beach Marine would complete
two changes to their renewal
application.
Forbes requested that Beach
Marine submit a drawing of the
deck area to illustrate where the
sound would generate in rela-
tion to the portion of the deck
leased by Fast Boys Pierside, also
in the Beach Marine complex.
He also requested that the
physical address be changed to
reflect a separation of the two
physical properties.
Siddall said he submitted the
requested rendering and amend-
ed the addresses to 2309 A and
2309 B consistent with the deck
as part of the original address per
the Duval County Property
Appraiser's Office.
An amended application for
renewal of the sound permit was
submitted to the city on Feb. 1,
2008.
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff respond-
ed to Beach Marine March 24.
Siddall said he met with Lindorff
and City Attorney Steve
Stratford the following day .and
was told that the city planned to
wait for the outcome of the Fast
Boys' case before. moving for-
ward with their application.
"Beach Marine has stated and
continues to believe that the city
is obligated to issue their sound
permit without regard to any lit-
igation with Fast Boys," accord-
ing to a written chronology
tracking the permit process. The
chronology was provided by
Beach Marine.
"Nevertheless, they agreed to
be patient, once again and wait."
The owners of the wing fran-


chise sued Lindorff for withhold-
ing the rezoning designation
that allowed the restaurant to
extend the licensed premises for
alcohol and food sales.
Circuit Court Judge Lance Day
issued an order April 10 in favor
of Fast Boys, ruling that it was
"an improper mode of code
enforcement for [Lindorff] to
withhold his signature on the
DBPR application."
Again, Siddall said he was con-
tacted by Forbes and Stratford
on April 30, both contending
that the issue would be resolved
the following week.
During the week of May 12,
Siddall said city officials request-
ed a copy of the lease agreement
with Fast Boys Pierside.
"Every point of contention
they have addressed and they
have had it," Pennington said.
"Unless the permit is issued they
are suing and wasting even more
tax payers money.
Unfortunately, the city will be
the ones wasting the money."
Stratford Tuesday said the
issue is "not a point of con-
tention but a matter of clarifica-
tion."
"There are a number of points
that need to be clarified. We
need to see how much of the
deck is being rented out to Fast
Boys. If someone is going to rent
a piece of property I want to
know how much of it is for out-
door seating," Stratford said.
"Tell me about it. They sent
me a drawing but it doesn't tell
how many feet it is. If they are
not going to give it to me I am
going to poke around until I get
my hands on it. If I have that
than the problem is solved.'

Deck space and how it is used near Beach Marine is at the core of an ongoing discussion
between the owners and the city of Jacksonville Beach in regards to a permit issuance.


Siddall said Beach Marine pro-
vided the portion of the lease
"that was relevant" to the situa-
tion and, a week later, submit-
ted a written letter to Stratford
stating they would install a rope
barrier delineating the separa-
tion of the deck space.
."We provided it and they
accepted it. There was no further
discussion or requests for more
information," he said. "This is
an endless round robin. We just
can't get a straight answer."
Siddall said the subject of the
lease was never broached in
early discussions regarding the
permit and seemed to surface


during the Fast Boys litigation.
"It was never a point of dis-
cussion. That came up subse-
quent to Judge Day's ruling on-
the Fast Boys case," he said. "I
think it has more to do with that
than our request for a sound per-
mit."
Lindorff Wednesday said he
recently returned from an eight-
day vacation and was unaware if
the city's request for the lease
information was met.
"I haven't seen anything," he
said. "Where it last stood was
that we needed to know how
much space Fast Boys' outdoor
dining area was and how they


proposed to demark it. We need
to make sure we were issuing a
permit that would not cross over
both businesses because Fast
Boys is not allowed any music."
Siddall said he is confident
that Beach Marine has provided
all of the information necessary
for the city to render a decision.
He is disappointed that the city
has not been as forthcoming.
"We have done everything
that has been asked of us then
things changed again," he said.
"That has sort of been the histo-
ry - a lot ,of broken promises
and no follow through."

Senators,


Panthers


may meet


on the


gridiron


It appears Fletcher and
Nease high schools will
finally get together again
on the gridiron. Plans are in
the works for a late August
preseason game to be played
at Panther Stadium.
For history buffs, the
Senators and Panthers last
met in 1996 and most foot-
ball fans feel it's been far too
long since the Beaches-area
rivals mixed things up wear-
ing pads and helmets.
Since Nease already has a
contract in place to play
Arlington Country Day
School in its preseason open-
er, there are complications to
the Senators-Panthers
matchup. For example, it
might turn into a three-team
affair for the Senators,
Panthers and Apaches. Each
squad would take on the
other two for a quarter of
play in round-robin style
competition.
That's not ideal, but at
least would get Nease and
Fletcher on the field at the
saiie tiime.-: : :
However, whether ACD
remains viable as a private
school appears to be in seri-
ous jeopardy. A shortfall in
teachers' pay, vandalism that
closed the campus for four
days and a visit last week by
two accrediting organizations
has fueled speculation that
the school could be closed or
sold.
Changes in Arlington
Country Day's status could
render the contract with
Nease null and void, setting
the stage for a Senators-
Panthers showdown as the
preseason game for both
teams.
That's clearly a good thing
for area sports fans. Fletcher
and Nease already do battle
during the regular season in
most sports, and those games
are among the most highly-
anticipated on the schedule.
From a purely X's and O's
standpoint, the match-up is
intriguing because Fletcher
has historically been known
as a methodical, grind-it-out
running team, while Nease
became a high-flying, pass-
oriented, try-to-score-50-
points-a-game unit under for-
mer head coach Craig
Howard.
Power vs. Finesse. Tradition
vs. Innovation. Strength vs.
Speed.
Cynics will ask why the
two Beaches football teams
didn't get together when
Ciatrick Fason was running
wild in Purple and White, or
when quarterbacks Tim
Tebow and Ted Stachitas were
leading the Green and Gold
to three straight state cham-
pionship game appearances.
Nease's football program
was decimated by the open-
ing of Ponte Vedra High
School, but the Panthers still
have a good nucleus of sen-
iors, some of whom have 15
state playoff games of experi-
ence under their chin straps.
Nease (13-2 ,in 2007)
recently dropped its Week 3
game with defending Class
2A state champion Madison
County, so the addition of
another quality opponent
like Fletcher (8-3 in 2007) is
welcomed.
Not that Nease needed to
beef up its fall slate. After
opening with 3A state semi-
finalist North Marion, the
Panthers play 3A state run-
ner-up St. Augustine, 5A
Daytona Beach Mainland, 4A
Lake City Columbia and 5A
state semifinalist Bartram.


Sharks set for spring football debut


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR

There will be no shortage of
football players for Saturday's
exhibition game between Ponte
Vedra and Creekside highs at
Nease Stadium.
But both fledgling St. Johns
County schools are having dif-
ficulty putting together coach-
ing staffs during a county-wide
hiring freeze.
Ponte Vedra High head foot-
ball coach Mike Loyd, who will
teach RE. next fall, has only
one other teacher/coach on his
staff, David Scott, currently at
Landrum Middle School.'
The remainder of his spring
coaching staff consists of par-
ents and volunteers.
Greg Stanton, the football
coach at Creekside, is in the
same boat. The only coach he
has who is also a teacher is
Shane Bowers, who spent last
season as a linebacker coach at
Nease.
Both of Creekside's coordina-
tors, Sam Disch (defense) and
Thomas Laubach (offense) are
teachers at Terry Parker High in
Duval County.
"No school in St. Johns
County is hiring externally,"
said PV High principal Craig
Speziale, a former high school
football coach in Dade County.
"These are the worst econom-
ic times for schools that I've
seen in the past 24 years. I even
helped out coaching a little this
spring."

safety Bill Bates is in charge of
defense and special teams.
Bates is an unpaid volunteer
coach with a son on the team.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars
lineman Eugene Chung is also
helping out with the Sharks,
when he's not out of town on
business.
Bates, who was in Dallas on
business Thursday, said he'll be
at Nease Saturday when the
Sharks and the Knights take the
field for the 1 p.m. kickoff.
"It will be a controlled scrim-
mage, but it should be excit-
ing," the former NFL all-pro
and former Nease assistant
coach said.
"Tuesday was the best prac-
tice we've had so far. It's great to
just watch the kids improve."
Creekside has about 60 play-
ers out, all of whom are either
ninth or 10th graders, Stanton
said.
Unlike Loyd, Stanton, who
coached Class 5A Terry Parker
to a 6-4 season in 2007, is not
coaching incoming freshmen
this spring.
"We spent the first week
doing speed and agility drills to
identify athletic ability," said
Stanton, who coached first-
round NFL draft pick Keith
Rivers (USC) in 2002 at Lake
Mary High in Central Florida.
"We didn't put on helmets
until May 12. The first thing
they told me was we wouldn't
have any linemen, but we're
not bad."
. According to Stanton, the
Knights have linemen ranging

from 230 to 300 pounds. One
of his guards is 280 and the
right tackle is 260.
"I always put my five best
linemen on the offensive line,"
added Stanton, a former center
in high school and college.
"We'll run the option with a


shotgun spread look."
Stanton calls his squad "a
pretty good jayvee team right
now."
The Knights, who will play as
an independent next fall, open
their inaugural season on Friday,
Sept. 5 at Class 4A Palatka.


At PV High, Loyd is coaching
the quarterbacks, running
backs and receivers, many of
whom played on Nease's suc-
cessful junior varsity team in
2007.
Quarterbacks include Otto
Gruhn Jr. and Clint Cronin.
Tanner Bates, Mike Ellis, and
J.P. Lemaster are a few of the
recognizable names at receiver.
Other Nease products include
Clay Mazza, Bryce Johnson,
Nick Freeman and lineman
Brandon Ingalls.
Bates said Chris Damm, a ris-
ing sophomore, is making a
name for himself at linebacker.
"A handful of these kids I
coached on the [Pop Warner]
midget level when Tanner was
in eighth grade," said Bates,
whose son will be a junior next
year.
"The majority of the kids
stayed' at Nease; but .that has
given- a lot of theirr guys the
chance to play."
The Sharks, who will also
play as an independent, open
their 10-game varsity slate with
an away game with Bartram
Trail High. Creekside will host
the Sharks on Sept. 15. PV will
host the Knights on Nov. 7.
But Saturday marks the first
contest of many between the
St. Johns County sister schools.
"We don't want to be the first
Creekside team to lose an ath-
letic event," said Stanton.
"I want us to come out of the
gate strong," said Speziale, a
former football player and
wrestler at North Miami Beach
High.
"What's exciting is that we
can both have a spring game
without either school being
opened yet."

Grom Surf Series aims to develop young talent


By J. TUESDAY
CONTRIBUTOR

T sjue goal of Charley Hajek's
| Gnarly Charley's Grom
Surf Series is to groom
groms, or young surfers, for
surfing competition and life.
The Grom Surf Series is starting
back up on June 7 at the
Jacksonville Beach Pier.
Hajek used to run an annual
event called the Sticky Bumps
surf contest which ran for 10
years. Some of the past cham-
pions included Asher Nolan,
Aaron Cormican, Gabe Kling,
Jeremy Creator and Jeff Crego.
Recently, Hajek has taken on
a huge challenge to teach
groms at a very young age how
to surf competitions. The
Grom divisions include the fol-
lowing: 10 years old and under,
11-13, 14-16, and girls open. If
the girls are 10 or under they
will have the option to surf
with the boys.
"I want to help groms out in
contests so that when they surf
ESA [Eastern Surfing
Association] or N.S.S.A.,
[National Scholastic Surfing
Association], or any other con-
test, they will have the confi-


dence to do well," said Hajek.
"A lot of
groms surf in
their first con-
test and get
blown out
because of this
situation. The
surf series gives
groms a chance
to build their
self esteem,
increase confi-
dence, gain
respect,
improve athlet-
ic ability, and
most impor-
tantly make
new friends."
Hajek teach-
es groms all
the ins and
outs and how
to succeed in
advancing to
the next heat
in a contest. I
The Gnarly
Charley Surf Cu t
Series also
focuses on helping groms to
understand that it is important
to be surfing for the fun as well
as good sportsmanship.


I


As Hajek says: "A good loser
is a great win-
ner!"
Gnarly
Charley's main
objective is to
groom the
groms to be
excellent com-
petitors, as well
as to become
well-rounded
individuals.
"I feel that it
is important
for groms to
associate with
good role mod-
els and as
many positive
outlets as possi-
ble," said
Hajek. "This
will help keep
the groms off
the streets and
out of trouble.
You can't get
into any trou-
ire ble in the
ocean."
Contest dates are: June 7,
June 21, July 12, July 26,
August 9,vSeptember 27,
October 25. All contests will be


held at the Jacksonville Beach
Pier and will start promptly at
9 a.m. Contest entry fees are
$25 per event.

Still a few good events even



as racing season concludes


he local 2007-2008 rac-
ing season is rapidly
coming to a close. We
can, of course, expect some
fine races over the summer
months but they will be
rather thin on the ground.
The attention will turn away
from the pure road run and
more toward the triathlon
and the track.
More than 800 people fin-
ished the Florida Striders'
Memorial Day 5K in Green
Cove Springs on May 26th.
Although 25-year-old Justin
Jacobs won the race in 15
minutes and 59 seconds, some
31 seconds better than 45-
year-old John Metzger, it is
Metzger who leads this sea-
son's Jacksonville Grand Prix
competition.
Looks like all Metzger has to
do now is show up for the
final JGP event, the Run For
The Pies, and the $1,000
purse is his. Metzger won the
Grand Prix last season and
Jacobs finished second.
Because the JGP scoring sys-
tem tends to favor the old
over the young, Jacobs will
have to be content with being
the runner-up once again.
Running and golf seldom
ever play well together. I can
attest to that. I love running
on golf courses but I am con-
stantly getting kicked off of
them. But on June 7th the
two come together for the
Neighborhoods of World Golf
Village 5K, an event that is
open to all runners and walk-
ers.
As you probably surmised,
the race takes place inside the
World Golf Village just north
of St. Augustine along 1-95. As
I suspected, they don't like
encroachers like me - the
race will be run on the roads,
not on their lush golf course..
The 5K starts at 8 a.m. and
at 9 there is also a one-mile
fun run for kids.
The best part seems to be
when the runs are over. There
will be a massive raffle with
prizes that include an $800

RUNNING/FITNESS


golf package, a night at the
Renaissance Resort worth
$250, two nights at the La
Terra Resort and Spa and piles
of other valuable prizes. Live
music by King Eddie and Pill
Pili will also be on hand.
All the kids will get a medal
for finishing the fun run and
there will be an inflatable
Moon Walk, clowns, face
painting, balloons and loads
to eat and drink.
Call 731-1900 for more
information on this event.
A week later, on June 14th,
the Run For The Pies will take
place in downtown
Jacksonville. The Pies is more
than a race, it is a fest.
As the last Grand Prix race,
it celebrates the end of anoth-
er great racing season. It is no
wonder that several years ago
Runners World magazine list-
ed Jacksonville as one of its
Top 10 Running Cities in the
USA. Runners here have a lot
to be proud about and plenty
of reasons to be thankful.
The Pies is two events, one
for the swift and another for
the rest of us. First up is the
Mizuno Invitational 5K, open
to any male who has run
under 17-minutes and any
female under 20-minutes in
the last year. It begins at 7:30
p.m. in front of the
Jacksonville Landing. The
course is a one-kilometer loop
that runners bash out five
times. They probably hate it


but spectators love theeasy-
to-view race course.
The women are given a
two-minute "equalizer" head
start over the men. There is a
$700 cash purse, free Mizuno
shoes and a $100 bonus for
the winner, man or woman.
At 8 p.m., the Run For The
Pies Open Race takes place.
The out-and-back course will
go from the Landing to the
, Municipal,Stadium and any
man who breaks 20-minutes
and every woman who runs
under 24-minutes will be
given the coveted pie.
Additionally, over 250 medals
will be awarded within the
age groups.
Afterwards, a huge party
will be underway inside the
Landing that will include
thousands of dollars worth of
giveaway merchandise, free
food and a live band.
Call 731-1900 to learn
more.
Also on June 14th is the sec-
ond Beaches Fine Arts Series
Triathlon that takes place at
Mickler's Landing in Ponte
Vedra Beach at 7 a.m. As
always, it is a sprint triathlon:
Quarter-mile ocean swim,
10.5-mile bike and 3-mile run.
The series third (final) event
will be on July 12.
Log on to beachesine-
arts.org to get all the details.
This Friday night, May
30th, don't miss the 33rd
annual Mile Festival present-
ed by JTC Running (formerly
known as the Jacksonville
Track Club). This unique cel-
ebration of the Mile includes
a one-mile race walk (7 p.m.)
and several other mile races
run by age group divisions
from 7:10 p.m. to 7:50 p.m.
As with all the JTC track
meets, kids are encouraged to
attend. The action takes place
on the track at Bolles High
School on San Jose Blvd.
Awards? Yes; and there is
even free pizza for all partici-
pants and spectators.
Call Lamar Strother, 388-
7860 or 384-8725, for more
information.


Registration fee is $15 through
Aug. 31 or $20 from Sept. 1

Link between ACL tears, heredity


W hen I first met Taylor
he was 15. At that
Time I was seeing
him for his knee, and he
recalled that he had been
moving quickly down the field
with the ball, and only one
player stood between him and
the goal. As he went to make
his move, he planted his left
foot and cut hard to the right,
and then he heard a loud pop,
and his left knee simply col-
lapsed.
He felt a terrible pain in his
knee and fell to the ground.
Taylor's soccer coach quickly
reached his player lying on the
field, and Taylor reported that
his bent knee felt out of place.
Taylor was assisted in
straightening his knee, and his
knee clunked back into its
proper position, and his pain
was reduced. He was now able
to stand and walk, although
his knee felt very weak and
soon began to swell.
Taylor's coach happened to
be a physical therapist, and he
suspected that Taylor had
"blown out his knee," the
dreaded phrase used to
describe tearing of the anterior
cruciate ligament, or ACL.
The coach recommended to
the player's parents that they
see an orthopedic surgeon,
and asked if they knew any.
Mom stated that they did, and
that they knew what all of this
"ACL business" meant. Turns
out, I had surgically repaired
their daughter's torn ACL.
When I saw Taylor and con-
firmed that he had indeed
torn his ACL, and that he too
would require surgery to
rebuild his knee, his parents
couldn't believe their family's
bad luck. It would only get
worse for them from there.
That was about eight years
ago. Since then, Taylor's broth-
er has torn his ACL, which I
surgically fixed, and then

Taylor tore his right ACL,
which also required surgery.
His parents have asked me if
I have ever seen anything like
this in my career, and the only
thing remotely similar was a
case involving a set of twin
boys, one who tore his ACL in
karate, and the other who sus-
tained the same injury a week
later jumping on a trampoline.
Taylor's parents have
become junior experts in the
treatment of ACL injuries,
having gone through five ACL
tears in three children. This
would certainly suggest a
hereditary relationship.
Dr Peter Fowler, of the
University of Western Ontario
and London Health Science
Center, has wondered how
common these sibling related
injuries occurred. He presented

the results of his study at the
annual meeting of the Acade-
my of Orthopedic Surgeons.
His findings were that the
sibling of an ACL-injured
patient was twice as likely to
sustain the same injury as the
normal population. In fact, if
one sibling had previously
torn his or her ACL, the study
revealed that there was a 26
percent chance of the other
active sibling tearing his ACL.
These findings may suggest
that parents consider a knee
protective program for their
children should one family
member sustain an ACL
injury, especially in females
where ACL injury rates are
higher.
Although the study didn't
specifically address these types
of programs, they have been
shown in the past to reduce
ACL injury rates. Specific
sports that carry a high risk of
ACL injury, such as soccer,
should also be addressed with
family members.

cuss issues regarding sports, med-

Alhambra tooting its own horn


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
The Alhambra Dinner
Theater is tooting its own horn
this week by teaming up with
the Jacksonville Symphony
Orchestra to present a concert
version of "The Music Man."
The 1958 Tony Award-win-
ning musical with its parade of
hits, such as "Gary, Indiana,"
runs at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. today
and Saturday at Jacoby
Symphony Hall. Tickets start at
$25.
The Jacksonville Symphony,
under associate conductor
Morihiko Nakahara, will pro-
vide the music, as a cast of 20
actors, many of whom are
Alhambra regulars, perform a
semi-staged production of the
Meredith Wilson play.
"This is a concert version
and the sets are minimal, but
it's fully cast and fully cos-
tumed," said Alhambra
spokesman Steve Osborn.

Roy Alan and Laura Hodos (center) as Harold Hill and Marian the librarian, during the Orlando Symphony Orchestra production of
"The Music Man" in March 2007. The concert version of the Meredith Wilson musical is staged today and Saturday at Jacoby Hall.


"The Orchestra will perform
nearly the full musical score."
A similar version of "The
Music Man" was performed in
March 2007 by the Orlando
Symphony Orchestra.
"This is a bigger production
than Orlando's and much
more focused on the music,"
said Tod Booth, the Alhambra's
owner and producer/director.
A guest soloist for the sym-
phony as recently as this sea-
son, Booth said he and JSO
music director Fabio Mechetti
have been "fans of each other"
for years and that "The Music
Man" is the perfect vehicle to
marry the talents of both stage
and symphony.
"I have great respect for the


symphony and I think the feel-
ing is mutual," said Booth,
who is producing and directing
"The Music Man" this week-
end.
Orlando residents Roy Allan
and Laura Hodos, who play the
,principal parts of Harold Hill
;and Marian Paroo, have per-
formed in a number of
Alhambra productions.
The cast of 20 also features
seven Beaches residents,
including Osborn, who plays a
member of a barber shop quar-
tet that also includes St. Johns
County Sheriff's Deputy Bo
Strange of St. Augustine..
Booth said the Alhambra
built the sets and made all the
costumes for the musical, con-

sidered one of the most popu-
lar of all time.
According to a synopsis of
the play, so-called "Professor"
Harold Hill convinces the par-
ents of River City, Iowa, circa
1912, to buy musical instru-
ments and uniforms for a
marching band he has no
intention of teaching.
A con man, Hill hopes to
skip town with money from
his scam, but becomes smitten
by a local librarian who Uncov-
ers his fraud.
Among the recognizable
tunes from this slice of Middle
Americana are "Till There Was
You" and "Marian the
Librarian."
The production also com-


memorates the Alhambra's.
40th anniversary as a dinner
theater.
"After introducing fully
staged operas several years ago,
it is a natural outgrowth to per-
form Broadway musicals in
their entirety," said Mechetti.
"We are excited to collabo-
rate with another fine local
organization, the Alhambra
Dinner Theater."
"What a joy it will be to hear
this wonderful music and these
lyrics brought to life with a full
orchestra," added Booth, who
will team with the JSO next
season on a full-scale produc-
tion of "West Side Story."

Find a subject and stay
with it until you perfect
it.
Picasso followed this rule in
creating his distorted figures
of women.
Enrique Mora has followed
this rule. In his new exhibit,
"At First Sight," which opened
last Friday night at Srtellers
Annex in Neptune Beach,
Mora's principal subject is the
distorted female figure.
Sitting, lying down, alone
and with another figure Mora
exaggerates the arms, legs and
other body parts in his color-
ful renditions of the human
body.
This large exhibit is colorful
with the passionate colors that
reflect his Latin heritage.
They are an example of con-
temporary painting by an
artist with imagination and
skill and the courage to dis-
play these unique creations.
Stellers Gallery Annex is locat-
ed at 200 First Street, Neptune
Beach. Call 247-7200.
Across the Courtyard at
Shelby's Coffee Shoppe you
will find another exhibit of
figure art.
Lauren Saxon is exhibiting
a collection of figure paintings
most of which are groups of
women. All but four paintings
are standing figures of women
dressed in colorful outfits in
groups of four or five.
Most interesting were four
paintings of single women
painted on a solid gold back-
ground. Each painting por-
trays a dancing figure. All are
unique and decorative.
Shelby's is located at 200 First
Street, Neptune Beach.
"Jet Set," works by Ryan
Strosser, will open today at the
Cultural Center at Ponte
Vedra. A reception will be held

5.
George Kinghorn, the chief
curator of the Museum of
Contemporary Art, is leaving
to take a position at the
University of Maine Museum
of Art in Bangor.


Congratulations and thanks
to Kinghorn, who has helped
the museum in its move to
downtown.
He was a hands-on worker
as well as an administrator.
The first time I met him he
was hanging paintings on the
first floor of the unfinished
downtown building.
His hard work and knowl-
edge of contemporary art con-
tributed greatly to the success
of the downtown location.
He will be missed as he goes
to his new assignment where
he will be working with young
people and influencing their
careers in art.

Check out 'Square Pegs' on DVD


If you can't get in to see "Sex
& the City: The Movie" this
Weekend, you might want to
check out when Carrie
Bradshaw was a social outcast.
If you've never heard of
"Square Pegs," blame CBS for
cancelling, after a single sea-
son, one of TV's most quirky,
comedies ever, and definitely
the best TV show from a
"Saturday Night Live" alum
until Chris Rock and Tina Fey
came along. (The show's first --
and last -- season now retails
for $24.99 on DVD.)
Anne Beatts was a five-time
Emmy-nominated writer from
"SNL's" "first wave", of 1975-
1980. (One of her most memo-
rable sketches featured Dan
Aykroyd as Fred Garvin, a
Midwestern, self-styled "man of
the evening.")
In 1982, Beatts created
"Square Pegs" based upon her
own high-school experiences.
Beatts' "SQ" alter ego was Patty


0 A
STEVE BAILEY
REVIEWER
Greene (Sarah Jessica Parker), a
well-meaning but inept high-
schooler. With her best friend
Lauren (Amy Linker), Patty
schemed to break her school's
caste system and become one
of the popular girls.
It's too bad Patty was so
inclined, because the group she
hung out with was pretty nice
on their own terms. Besides
Lauren, Patty's circle included
comedian wanna-be Marshall


Blechtman (John Femia), and
New Waver Johnny Slash (the,
glorious Merritt Butrick -- a
Gainesville native who, sadly,
died of AIDS before his 30th
birthday).
The group to which Patty
aspired -- the social snobs --
was led by yuppie-to-be Muffy
Tepperman ("Still Standing's"
Jami Gertz, then a minor '80s
heartthrob).
Mirroring Patty's conflict, the
show struggled for approval
from CBS.
When the network meddled
in the writing, Beatts tried to
act like her ex-boss, "SNL" pro-
ducer Lorne Michaels, and
would threaten to leave when
the network meddled in the
show. According to Beatts, CBS'
response was invariably, "Fine;-
take a hike." The series man- .
aged one forlorn season before
The Eye pulled the plug.
But, except for some rather
dated '80s references -- one


episode revolves around getting
New Wave band Devo to play
at a high-school dance -- the
show perfectly nails high-
school alienation, and does so
more hilariously than high-
toned efforts such as "My So-
Called Life."
Parker nearly didn't get. the
lead role because -- shades of
"Sex & the City" -- she was ini-
tially thought to be too pretty.
Happily,. Parker shows up on
the DVD commentary, where
she opines that Carrie
Bradshaw is the logical conclu-
sion to which Patty would
aspire. (Er, maybe.)
If you have a Goth-styled,
humor-free teen who needs to
lighten up a bit, throw "Square
Pegs" on their DVD player. And
then try to convince the teen
(and you) that the show's clue-
less heroine went on to
become a sex symbol for the
'90s.

A e look forward to
this time of the
year when every-
thing is in bloom, the boat is
in the water and outdoor
parties start appearing on
the calendar. That signals
the time to open the ros6, a
wine that is synonymous
with Provence.
It is here, amongst the
lavender and sun-baked
vineyards, where much of
the country's ros6 is made.
The pink, dry wine is as
much a fixture in
Mediterrean homes as a bowl
of olives. Not only does the
color add a festive accent to
the vacation experience, but
a chilled rose is such a great,
inexpensive sipper.
We load up on ros6s in the
spring and take them to raft-
offs on the boat. They never
seem to disappoint our
friends, many 6f whom
rarely buy the wine. Our new
goal is to convince them that
this is a wine to buy in the
summer and especially for
party crowds.
Rose has suffered from an
image problem created when
blush wines became popular
decades ago. Although simi-
lar in appearance, blush
wines, like white zinfandel,
are sweet. Roses are typically
dry. Those with fresh acidity
are good accompaniments to
light fare, like fruit dishes,
fish and white meats. Best of
all, they can be served cold
- a welcomed relief in warm
weather.
Traditionally, ros6s are
made from Rhone grape vari-
eties, like syrah, grenache
and carignan. But san-
giovese, an Italian grape vari-
ety, and pinot noir have
become more popular in
recent years. Depending on
the dominant grape variety,
a ros6's flavors generally
include strawberry, raspberry,
peach and citrus.
The color comes from one
of two methods: Skin contact
(the grape skins are left on
the fermenting juice for only
a couple of days) and saignee


TOM MARQUART and
PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'
(pink juice is bled from the
freshly pressed fruit and fer-
mented separately).
Although ros6s are made in
most wine-growing regions,
we favor those from south-
ern France and Spain. We
have found these ros6s to
have better acidity to keep
them refreshing and food-
friendly. Nonetheless, this
year we found several from
California that we liked.
As Mikey once said, "Try it
- you'll like it."
A L'Ombre des Fontaines
Ros6 2007 ($11). This Cotes-
du-Rhone uses the tradition-
al grapes: Grenache (70 per-
cent), syrah and carignan. It
has beautiful strawberry
fruit, good acidity and a
touch of citrus.
Domaine de la Mordoree
Ros6 2007 ($15). One of our
favorites in this list, the
Mordoree is worth the extra
few bucks, Great length,
abundant strawberry and
raspberry fruit. This Tavel
wine has more complexity
than your typical rose -
there is good acidity behind
the intense fruit.
Alexander Valley
Vineyards Dry Rose of
-Sangiovese 2007 ($13).
Watermelon aromas pull you
into this very nice and dry
ros6 from California.
Strawberry and raspberry fla-
vors with a mineral character
that gives this single-vine-


yard rose a refreshing
mouthfeel.
Stoller Vineyards JV
Estate Pinot Noir Rose
2007. This Oregon ros6 was
made'in a blend of two
methods: Half the grapes
were pressed immediately
and fermented in cooled
steel tanks; the other half
was cold soaked for four days
before pressing and fermen-
tation. The result is an out-
standing, fruity rose with
ripe strawberry and sweet
cherry notes.
Clos du Bois Rose 2006
($14). Fruit-forward style
redolent of strawberries and
blackberries. Simpy and dry.
Chateau Grande Cassagne
Rose 2007 ($12). Grenache,
syrah and mourvedre grapes
combine to deliver one of
the most fruity roses from
southern France. Its generous
fruit flavors has made it one
of our perennial favorites.
Mas de Guiot Ros6 2007
($12). Another favorite, this
wine has more subtle and
elegant flavors with a deep.
color and ripe fruit aromas.
Blended with grenache, syrah
and cabernet sauvignon,
which gives it some depth.
Mas Carlot Ros6 2007
($12). Interesting grapefruit
and citrus notes add to the
bright strawberry and rasp-
berry flavors of this blend of
grenache, syrah and cabernet
sauvignon.
Chateau d'Aqueria Tavel
Ros6 2007 ($19). Located on
the right bank of the Rhone,
Tavel produces some of the
best, most-underrated roses
in France. Year after year,
this chateau makes an
intense, full-body rose with
bright acidity for many food
matches. Good depth and a
hint of pepper on the finish.
Blend includes grenache,
clairette, cinsault, mourvedre
and bourboulenc.
Gran Feudo Rosado 2007
($12). One of the great
Spanish rosados, this Navarra
beauty is made entirely from
garnacha (grenache) grapes.
Berry notes and a floral bou-

PET TALES


Pet

Tales

wants

you!

Actually, Pet Tales
wants your pet,
whether he walks,
crawls, runs,
creeps or jumps.
Whether she purrs,
barks, snorts,
neighs or hisses.
Whether your pet
is furry, slimy,
scaly, hairy or
prickly. Whether it
has four legs or,
eight (or none). All
we require is that,
the pet be legal.
And loved.


quet. Good value.
Wild Rock Vin Gris Ros6
2007 ($16). Even New
Zealand is getting into the �
rose act, and why not? It
grows some of the best pinot
in the world. Added to the
pinot here is merlot, syrah
and malbec - quite a collec-
tion for a quaffable rose with
cherry and strawberry notes.
CHAMPAGNES
If you want a little sparkle
in your rose, we recommend
Nicholas Feuillatte Brut
Ros6 ($35), a great value for
a real French champagne. We
can't imagine any woman
not liking a ros6 champagne
with lots of effervescence,
cherry notes and toasty,
apple notes. A very nice wine
to set a romantic mood.

One mission made him a minister


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER

A college experience with
Campus Crusade for Christ
changed the direction of his
life, said Sunrise Community
Church's Pastor Andrew
Rogers.
While a student at Fresno
State University, Rogers volun-
teered to minister to others
through the faith-based organ-
ization.
"I saw how the message of
the Gospel changes people'
lives," he said.
As a result, even though his
goal from the age of ten years
old was to become an attorney,
Rogers said he felt called to the
ministry.
"I can't imagine doing any-
thing else," he said.
Rogers will be ordained
within the Evangelical Free
Church 'and will be installed as
Pastor of Sunrise Community
Church at the 10:15 a.m. serv-
ice on Sunday, June 8.
He has served as pastor dt
Sunrise since June of last year.
He and his family (wife Jenny
and their four children ages 2
to 9 years old) relocated from
California where he had been
the pastor of an Evangelical
Free Church for 14 years.
Dan Burleson recently
joined Rogers at Sunrise and
will serve as Assistant Pastor.
The two men worked in the
ministry together in Southern
California.


Sunrise is
a n
Evangelical
Free Church
with "first
and fore-
most a high
view of
Scripture,"
said Rogers.
T h e
church is at
298 Aquatic
Drive in
Atlantic t i c
Beach and ,'
was founded
in 1979.
* Within
the organiza-
tion of
Evangelical
F r e e
Churches,
there is an
emphasis on Past
proclaiming P
the Gospel.
Each church governs its own
affairs within a unified and
supportive network of church-
es, said Rogers.
In addition to Sunday mom-
ing classes for children, Sunrise
offers a variety of adult educa-
tion programs "to train peo-
ple to minister to each other."
These include .parenting and
marriage classes.
This fall Sunrise will offer a
new class for men called "Men
of Purity." Also, a "Creation
versus Evolution Work-shop" is
planned for sometime next
year, he said.


or Andrew Rogers
Rogers, who has an under-
graduate degree in Business
Marketing from Fresno State,
has Masters of Divinity and
Masters in Biblical Counseling
Degrees.
Currently under discussion
for development at Sunrise is a
Biblical Counseling Center, he
said.
"Many people embrace
Christianity and think that this
means life is going to be really
easy."
Biblical counseling offers
real solutions for real problems
by finding solutions in the
Bible," said Rogers.


The official Ordination and Installation service for Pastor Andrew
Rogers of Sunrise Community Church will be held on June 8.
