Deborah Luke Mandarins youth made a dierenceBy Sandy Arpen mail@floridanewsline.comPhoto courtesy Mandarin Museum & Historical Society Mandarins youth cont. on pg. 13MAY 2018 Volume 12 Issue 7 Brett Nolan and Chelsea Stanch with the street sign.Did you ever notice the forlorn look-ing grey concrete post at the corner of Loretto Road and Flynn Road? Did you wonder what it was? Well, recent UNF grad Brett Nolan did. Nolan is a history bu and new volunteer at Mandarin Museum & Historical Society, and he decided he wanted to wanted to know more about this object. He soon dis-covered that the post was left over from pre-consolidation days, when the city and the county marked the streets with these concrete sign posts. ey were always white with black lettering. After some more research to be sure the sign was on public property and talking with the homeowner on the corner, Nolan decided that he wanted to bring it back to life and paint it, as a way of reminding drivers-by of the old days in Mandarin. With the support of the historical society and the help of his page 6Inquiring Minds want to know!NEW! Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc.Creeks rrfntbffbnnrfntnb nnt ntbn tnt r(904) 230-7840 www.creeksair.com Its been said that Kindness is the language in which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. For a group of volunteers in Mandarin, kindness and loyalty to the community of the visually disabled population is their only goal. National data tells us that in Florida alone, approximately 489,700 people have a visual disability. Braille is an important part of the everyday lives of so many with vision loss, yet the turnaround time on braille documents, handouts, textbooks and other resources could take weeks and months to carry out. Sixty years ago, a group of volunteers set out on a mission to help and e Temple Sisterhood Braille Group was formed. is special group remains a volunteer organization that transcribes printed materials into braille. Braille material is thermoformed and spiral bound. Childrens books are illustrated by raised thermoform or by sewing on tiny toys Photo courtesy Temple Sisterhood Braille GroupBraille Group members Pam Wiker, Elaine Calvin, and Holly Cleveland volunteer their time to transcribe printed materials into braille. and materials. e types of materials produced include textbook and literary braille, books, pamphlets, charts, bus schedules, menus and letters. Tests may also be transcribed upon request. e Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine as well as many other private, public and individuals reach out to the group for help. Approximately 20 active members give their time to meet the needs of teachers, homeschooling requests, and transcribers. Members take a rigorous ninemonth course where they learn braille. e members then submit manuscripts to the Library of Congress to become certied. Some of the members connected with the group because they have relatives who are blind. Others were in search of community service. Its nice to provide people with what they need to read, said Lynette Taylor, a Braille Group member since 1989. Teachers give us as much lead time as possible, but its nice to be able to help meet their needs right away so that they dont wait for long. Members of the Temple Sisterhood Braille Group use their own personal computers and some have an embosser in their home, so that they can work from home when most convenient. e groups work is paid for by the Temple Sisterhood, donations, grants and fundraising. We never charge anything for our services. e equipment is costly and we use approximately 30 boxes of braille paper a year. e Temple supports our need for space, Taylor said. Opening up a world for so many to read and learn is the life behind this organization. Each piece may take 10 minutes or an hour or more, depending on the intricacy required. e dedicated volunteers keep the mission going and there is always room for additional help.

A: is has been a subject of concern to me for over a year. e City of Jacksonville arborist and his sta will be looking at the medians from Goodbys to Julington Creek. e medians along San Jose Boulevard, a state road, north of Interstate 295 are state medians and we are working with the Florida Department of Transportation to improve them. For the medians south of Interstate 295, we have an interlocal agreement with the state for the City of Jacksonville to maintain. ere is presently an RFP (Request for Proposal) out to beautify the medians. Some of the medians are too small for the mature trees. Its important to note that medians have the same substrate under them as the road, which is not conducive to growing anything. We will have to dig up this substrate under the medians to be able to put in sucient soil so the trees and plants will grow. Q: What is the status of the median improvements along Old St. Augustine Road? A: Right now we are in the process of improving the medians on Old St. Augustine Road south of Interstate 295. e money has been allocated and we should see progress within 60 days. Q: Do you have any update on the County Dock Road property? A: is issue underwent mediation to try to come to a consensus on development and construction on this property. e mediation was not successful, so it is now up to the applicant as to how he would like to proceed. Q: Is the Marbon Road property getting close to the end of the due diligence period prior to sale? A: Yes, my understanding is that closing on this property should occur before the end of April. I believe they need to have an easement corrected and then should be able to proceed with the sale and then development as the approved PUD. Q: Are the sidewalks along Mandarin Road nearing completion? A: By the time this issue of Mandarin NewsLine is in circulation, the sidewalks along Mandarin Road from Orange Picker Road to the south should be complete. By the next issue, I should be able to give an update on the northward sidewalks along Mandarin Road as well as the sidewalks along Orange Picker Road. Q: We had a reader ask this question: Are there any updates on the old KMart property on San Jose Boulevard at Old St Augustine Road? This is one of the major eyesores in Mandarin. A: I actually havent heard anything about this and unfortunately, dont have anything to share. Q: Do you have any other District 6 updates? A: e splash park at Losco Park will open on May 1 and the new playground there should be completed by the same time. I hope community members will let me know what they think of it. Q: What is the best way for our readers to contact you? A: Community members can email me at MattS@coj.net or call (904) 6301388. Q: Yesterday (April 23), the Duval County School Board selected the semifinalists for the next superintendent. What can you tell us about this process? A: According to our search rm, Hazard Young Attea & Associates, there were more than 70 candidates who expressed interest in this position. Once they were all ltered through the process, the School Board received the applications and considered 26 candidates. From there, we selected six seminalists. Of this top six, Im very condent that with their records and leadership, we will end up with a great superintendent for DCPS. Q: What can you tell us about the candidates? A: is is a good group. If people take the time to investigate, I believe they will be satised with their records and what theyve accomplished in their current positions. Each candidate has done something signicant and been instrumental in moving their current school district forward. Q: Can you share any specifics about each candidate? A: One of the characteristics that rose to the top during our community meetings was that everyone wanted someone with signicant leadership experience and connection to education. All of these candidates have these. Two of the candidates, Dr. Diana Green (who began her teaching career in Jacksonville) and Frederick Heid (former chief academic ocer at DCPS) have ties to Jacksonville. Harrison Peters is chief of schools for Hillsborough County Schools in Florida and Green is superintendent of Manatee County Schools in Florida. Michael Dunsmore is a superintendent of schools in North Carolina, Sito Narcisse is chief of schools in the Nashville area and Erick Pruitt is an area superintendent of a large school district in Houston. Q: What is the next step? A: On May 11, the board will hold the initial interviews with the six seminalists from 8 a.m. 4 p.m. in the Cline Auditorium (open to the public) before meeting on May 14 to identify the nalists. Interviews with the nalists will be May 16, 17 and 18 and then on May 22 the board will meet to identify the preferred candidate. e plan is for this person to begin work in July. Part of this process will include the 25-member focus group, which includes three representatives (one of whom is a DCPS employee) from each district. is focus group will also interview the seminalist candidates on May 12 at the Schultz Center from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. (open to the public) and then make a recommendation to the board. Q: Do you have anything else to share about this process? A: It is important to note that the board has been methodically working on this process since last fall; a lot of work has already been done in advance of this busy month of May. Several of the candidates for superintendent were identied by a majority of the board. We were all on the same page and Im excited that were bringing some strong talent to Jacksonville. Also, Id like to say that Dr. Willis has done a phenomenal job as superintendent. I believe Duval County Public Schools are better for her leadership. Q: How can our readers contact you? A: ey can email me at HersheyL@ duvalschools.org or call me at (904) 316-3609.

A: ere is becoming a cloud of mistrust as far as this topic. From the beginning, weve never had a bill in front of the City Council. is has been my problem all along. Now the JEA director has resigned and theyve just appointed an interim director during this period of transparency... or lack thereof. At this time, I think we should be looking at possibly restructuring JEA to meet the competition and provide low rates and additional sources of electricity for customers, but still maintaining ownership. I have had more constituents tell me they dont support the sale than I have heard about any other controversial issue, including the HRO. We should be focusing on other issues such as sidewalks in Mandarin and e District. Q: What can you tell us about The District? A: is project, which is a development on the riverfront at the old JEA generating plant, is moving forward. It received unanimous approval from the Downtown Investment Authority and will be up for a vote in the City Council probably in mid-June. ere seems to be a good amount of support. When completed, e District proposes to be a city within a city and contain 1,170 residential units; 200,000 square feet Inquiring Mindswant to know!By Martie Thompson editor@floridanewsline.com ??Are you puzzled about something going on in Mandarin or wondering about whatever happened on a topic from a previous issue? Email your question to us at editor@oridanewsline.com by the fth of the month and we will do our best to track down the information for you. While we will do our best to answer all the questions we receive, we may not be able to answer all questions received each month. Also, due to publication scheduling, the time it takes to research answers may vary. Here are answers to questions we received this month: Q: At the end of March, surveyors were working at the east dead end of Longview Drive South, near the west border of Mandarin Park near the boat ramp. Do we know why? A: We asked this question to City Councilman Matt Schellenberg, who provided the following answer: City of Jacksonville Director of Parks, Recreation and Community Services Daryl Joseph informed me that the work is a part of a FIND grant design project to add a kayak launch area near the boat ramp. e survey should be complete in April 2018. Q: It appears that when the depressions on the right hand lanes of Old St. Augustine Road become potholes, the city crews set up detours for a couple of days and put sand in the hole prior to paving it. The depressions appear to line up to the storm sewers, so it appears the moving water constantly washes away the sand, creating a depression, that turns into another pothole. Why dont the crews fill the potholes with gravel or something that does not wash away? A: According to Steve Long of the City of Jacksonville Public Works Department, these are cave ins on the storm sewer lines and the repair isnt the placement of sand into the holes. Long said, We dig down and uncover the pipe. e pipe is then collared to seal the leaking joint. In some cases when the pipe is too deep or there are major utility conicts, we will use an injection system to seal the pipe joints. After the joints are sealed, the roadway subbase and base are restored and then new asphalt is placed. Long further notes that the repeated repairs along Old St. Augustine Road are too continuous and new pipe joint leaks are causing the cave ins. of oce space; 200,000 square feet of retail; a 3.5 acre riverfront park as an extension of the Southbank Riverwalk; a 125 slip marina; and a Marriott hotel. Its taken several years of work to get to this point, but thats how long a project of this magnitude requires. Q: Do you have any results from the City of Jacksonvilles tire buyback program? A: is event was held at EverBank Field on March 24 in an eort to combat blight. A total of 22,508 tires were dropped o and $43,602 was paid out to residents who brought them in. Additionally, 3,376 snipe signs were turned in and $1,666 was paid out for them. I would say this was a successful day. is is an ongoing program and we will have additional events in the future. Q: Do you have anything else to share? A: Id like to label this one Did you know? Did you know that October 1 will be the 50th anniversary of consolidated Jacksonville? ere is a celebration planned. In fact, the JSO ocers are already wearing badges that acknowledge this milestone. Q: What is the best way for our readers to contact you?

After about four minutes of light rain just before the start of the event, the rest of the day is best summed up by fun, laughter and lots of activity. Festivities included a barbeque, pony rides, face painting and clowns, balloon artistry, games, and a bounce house. Background music was provided by a trio of students from the UNF Jazz program; grill masters Art Sherman and Marc Raitt cooked up hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken sandwiches; and desserts were prepared and served by River Garden Auxiliary, headed by Sharon Smith and Carla Bernard. Many also attended the annual meeting of River Garden Senior Services, held in the Cohen Auditorium, where River Garden installed new board leadership and trustees. After ve years as president of e Coves at River Garden board, Lois Schlesinger passed the honor to Dennis Lafer, who served as vice president.

In the past ve years, JEA has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in hardening its electric, water and sewer systems to make them more resistant to storm-related disruptions. ese critical repairs and improvements help us restore power and return to normal operations more quickly after a major storm, said JEA spokesperson Gerri Boyce. In addition, Boyce added, JEAs storm preparation plans include year-round tree trimming, especially in established neighborhoods such as Mandarin, where large, mature trees pose a danger come hurricane season. Most storm-related power outages result from tree branches falling on power lines, she said. at makes Mandarin and other tree-lined neighborhoods more susceptible to service interruptions when a major storm hits. To reduce the risk of downed branches causing outages during a storm, JEA trims trees across the city all year long, working on a two-and-a-half-year cycle to cover JEAs 900 square-mile service territory. In some cases, Boyce said, JEA will remove a hazardous tree that is interfering with power lines. When a major storm causes widespread power outages, JEA goes into emergency operations mode, implementing its Restoration 1-2-3 process to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. During Phase 1, JEA repairs its power facilities and restores power to local hospitals, shelters and police and re stations. Once these critical public safety facilities are restored, JEA moves to Phase 2, at which time the utility is ready to accept outage reports from individual customers. Just as youd pull over on the highway to let an ambulance pass, Boyce said, you can help save lives by waiting until Phase 2 to report your individual power outage. During Phase 2, JEA restores power by targeting specic sections of the electric grid or circuits giving top priority to repairs that will restore power to the most customers at one time. In Phase 3, JEA completes power restoration, focusing on the few isolated areas still without power.

In fact, studies have measured summer learning loss for over a century. According to the National Summer Learning Association, most lower-income children lose two months of math skills during summer vacation and up to three months of reading skills. When school resumes in the fall, nine out of 10 teachers must spend three whole weeks re-teaching material students learned the previous year. ese learning losses have a cumulative impact. By the time they reach fth grade, lower-income students are two to three years behind their higher-income peers. When they enter high school, over half of the achievement gap can be attributed to summer learning loss during their elementary school years. So how can we prevent the dreaded summer slide? A solution is readily available providing structured learning through so-called summer camps and other summer learning programs. Just as the arts are an essential part of a childs K-12 schooling, so are arts The arts prevent summer learning lossBy Kimberly Hyatt mail@floridanewsline.comlearning opportunities essential for the summer break. Arts learning matters every single day. It develops important skills like creative thinking, perseverance and self-discipline that help students succeed. And among many other lessons, arts education helps children learn how to learn. rough studying the arts, children develop the attitudes and skills that can make learning anything fun and, therefore, successful. When children can see that dedication to learning and sustained attention to a goal helps them learn to play an instrument or perfect dance moves or act in character or create a piece of art, they come to realize they can approach their school work the same way. Any subject or problem is more fun and thereby more engaging when you see yourself making progress and capable of continued progress. Short term, high-quality arts camps and programs are an excellent way for children to discover how to learn and have fun doing it. Not just in the summer, but all year long. Camp Encore, presented by the Cathedral Arts Project, oers six to 11-yearolds the opportunity to discover new passions and grow their creativity. Campers of all experience levels will enjoy one-of-a-kind instruction in dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts, led by qualied teaching artists. Visit capkids.org/encore or email camp@ capkids.org for more information. Kimberly Hyatt is President and CEO of Cathedral Arts Project

Located at the intersection of County Dock and Loretto roads is the Doctor Henry A. Coleman residence. Coleman purchased the land from John W. Lockwood for $1,000 in 1878 ($23,966 in 2018 dollars). While the date of construction is unclear, it is assumed the house was already there when Coleman purchased the estate. Coleman, a South Carolina native, attended the South Carolina Medical College in 1860. During the Civil War, he served as a surgeon for the Confederate cause. Once in Mandarin, the doctor was recognized by 1885 as having one of the largest of the three medical practices in the community. It is possible that the original house purchased in 1878 was simpler in appearance; however, because of his successful medical practice, Coleman probably enhanced much of the exterior, as evident today. A style popular during 1870 1910, the structure is of Folk Victorian architecture. Complete with scroll-cut brackets, cornice drapery and decorative porch railings, the home exemplied Colemans wealth and status. He valued his home, which was likely his ofce as well, at $6,000 in 1885 ($149,220 in 2018 dollars). Typical of Mandarin culture, roughly 500 orange trees were said to be on the Coleman property, some remaining today. After the death of the famed doctor and his wife, Harriet, the property was inherited by their only child, Essie Ida Coleman. Essie married late in life to a cousin, also named Henry Coleman. e house left the Coleman family in 1956, but the residence still carries on much valued history of Mandarins storied past Together, when we know our history and the signicance of our historic locations, we can better protect them for generations to come. It is imperative that we keep the unique charm of Mandarin from becoming a thing of the past. Brett Nolan is a volunteer with the Mandarin Museum & Historical Society.

Store Lane was once the way to get to the old store and the Post Oce that were located on the river to take advantage of river travel. In 1911, after oyster shell roads and automobiles became available, the store and Post Of-ce were relocated to the corner of Man-darin and Brady Roads, where the historic building stands today. Nolans curiosity and desire to improve his community, has caused people to notice these vintage signposts and learning about their Mandarin history. Watch for his new monthly article in Mandarin NewsLine about historic buildings and places in Mandarin called Back in Time with Brett.Deborah Luke is a Jacksonville native who has served in the Duval and Clay county school systems for 43 years. She is a graduate of Englewood High School and the University of Florida. Luke has spent her career in elementary education, teaching young children within four dierent Duval County schools and one Clay County school. Although many of her days are still lled with educating as a substitute teacher, she retired from Duval County in 2009 and from Clay County in 2016. She and her late husband of 32 years, Donald, began calling Mandarin home 35 years ago and the two have one son, Justin. Luke was recently named Educator of the Year by the Jacksonville Elk Lodge #221, an honor that she holds dear. Luke is an inspiration to so many, not only for her work to encourage and be a positive inuence in the lives of children but also for her strength and positive outlook on life. Very recently, she lost everything in an electrical house re, yet her joy remains. In the blink of an eye everything can change, she said. Its a new awakening. I lost all my treasures, but at least Im alive and my son wasnt in the house. Life is precious and I made it through. Im looking for a condo and looking forward to nding a new place to call home. 1. What do you enjoy most about living in Mandarin? Mandarin has so much to oer. Its a calming community. I see so many former students around and I love when they come up to me. 2. What do you enjoy doing apart from your continued involvement in education? I enjoy spending time with my friends, shopping and just enjoying each others company. I was learning to play piano again. I found my old piano that I played on as a child. It was 67 years old, but I lost it in the re. Maybe I can get another piano and play again. 3. What would you consider your greatest accomplishment? Being married and taking care of my husband through his illness. Also raising our special needs son. 4. What do you enjoy most about your work in education? Encouraging my kids to read and watching the contributions they make to their friends while helping each other learn to read. I did an auction to encourage people from all over the country to donate books. Jeb Bush came as an auctioneer and other celebrities joined in. 5. What do you think is the hardest part about being a teacher in todays school system? Making sure that all students are on board and performing where they need to be to score their best on the big tests.

In just a few short weeks the kids will be home for summer break. From kindergarten to college, they will all be back in the house with little to entertain them other than some type of electronic device. ere was a time when kids spent the majority of their free time outdoors participating in a number of activities, but it seems that nowadays for some kids, an outdoor activity is nothing more than a quick run to the car or bus. Other than organized sport activities, how do we get our kids outside enjoying the great outdoors around them? We can start by teaching a kid how to sh. Fishing in Florida is practically a year round activity that the whole family can partake in and enjoy. Access to shing starts in many of our own neighborhoods, with nearby ponds and creeks just a short walk or bike ride away. Additional accesses to a variety of dierent shing locations (all without a boat) are the St. Johns River, Intracoastal Waterway, nearby inlets, piers, lakes, springs, creeks, rivers, and the beach all are just a short car ride away. Online searches for shing locations, or searching state, county, and federal parks, can be a great help providing you with the necessary information to get you started with the planning of your next shing trip. Learning the basics of how to sh should not be very dicult. Hook, line, sinker, oat, weight, rod and reel complete the list of tools to get you started. Having a friend to teach you can be a great help. For self learners, YouTube videos are seemingly endless with guidance and instructions of how to sh and catch various species. Most any tackle or bait store you care to visit will usually be more than happy to help get you started and pointed in the right direction. Camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, going to the beach, and even vacation travel can all be outdoor activities that can be done with shing in mind. Learning to enjoy the outdoors and all that it has to oer can often start with a single shing pole. e dividends of teaching a kid to sh are many and well worth a try. Fishing Report: Bream shing in area ponds and creeks should be pretty good. Live worms or crickets are the better bait choice, but bread ball will work ne for neighborhood ponds. Pompano and whiting still in the surf. Early smaller croaker bite in the St. Johns. Whether you catch one, some, or none, the family time spent shing will last a lifetime. Editors Note: e CreekLine will now include a Catch of the Month photo with Capt. Davids Fishing Report each month. Please email a photo of yourself or your child with the sh caught to catchofthemonthpictures@gmail.com. Be sure to include the name of the person(s) in the photo, the name of the person who took the photo, the type of sh and date and location of the catch. We will select a photo each month for publication. Good luck!Whether you catch one, some, or none, the family time spent fishing will last a lifetime.

Students use interactive means to learn math Loretto Elementary School teacher Angie Khakpour developed an engaging and interactive way for her fth grad students to learn math. e students used the coordinate grid on the wall to identify the coordinates of pictures from places in Mandarin Jacksonville. en, students had to describe the distance from the origin using the sentence stem: Beginning at the origin, move _____ units _____ on the ___ axis. en, the class replicated the coordinate points by placing the identical picture on the coordinate grid, created on the oor. Another student had to identify and write the coordinate pair on a sticky note and place it on the oor. e students then discussed distance from location to location and created scenarios. For example, I moved three units left and one unit down...what way could I have traveled?Photo courtesy Loretto Elementary SchoolFifth grade students learned how to identify points on a coordinate grid.

To kick o the week, Flotilla 14-8 will be conducting free Vessel Safety Checks all power boats, sailboats, paddle craft, and jet skis are eligible. If the vessel has all the required items in good working order according to federal, state, and local law, the vessel will earn the Vessel Safety Check Decal for 2018. e free Vessel Safety Check is no risk if you fail and if the failed items are corrected we can schedule another examination to earn a decal. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 14-8 will be at Mandarin Park Boat Ramp and John T. Lowe Boat Ramp on May 19 and May 20 oering free Vessel Safety Checks beginning at 9 a.m. As a reminder, the best life jacket (or PFD) is the one you wear and wearing it properly is crucial to its eectiveness. For example, if you use the fanny pack style inatable PFD (popular with paddle boarders and kayakers), wearing it on your back may cause you to be face down in the water. is style should be worn in front of your torso to have you face up, according to a study by the National Association of State Boating Legislators Administration (NASBLA). Flotilla 14-8 continues to oer Safe Boating Classes monthly and the next scheduled classes are Saturday, May 12, Saturday, June 9, and Saturday, July 14. Successful completion of the class gets you a certicate and the Florida Safe Boating ID Card from FWC.

Staverman Audiologist/OwnerSchedule an appointment today!StavermanHearingCenters.com(904) Hear and be heard. Improving your ability to communicate through better hearing makes each day brighter, strengthens your relationships and makes life more fulfilling. No matter how mild or significant your hearing loss, it interferes with your ability to fully enjoy sounds and interactions with loved ones. Through technology and expertise, well bring back the sounds you miss most. At Staverman Hearing Centers, you will always be heard. We believe great hearing care begins with listening to you and developing a hearing health care plan that solves your hearing loss while meeting the needs of your lifestyle and budget. Your Community Resource For Better Hearing 407-803-3098 Taking a look at the Climate Prediction Center on the NOAA website (http:// www.cpc.noaa.gov/), it seems we may escape drought conditions, at least for the next couple of months. Unfortunately, also according to NOAA, we are likely to experience higher than normal tempera-tures. For gardeners, the ramications are that we need to pay particular attention to our yards and gardens water needs, since our usually sandy soils allow for quick drain-age, and higher temperatures cause faster evaporation. If you havent yet done so, check out your system, whether you have in-ground sprinklers, soaker hoses, drip irrigation, or a gravity-fed water barrel, to ensure that your yard is getting adequate water. If you have recently installed new beds they may not be getting the optimum amount of water if you are relying on a system that was set up to irrigate grass. Converting sprinkler systems in plant beds to soaker or drip systems saves water by delivering it more directly to the roots of plants. Check out http://gardeningsolu-tions.ifas.u.edu/care/irrigation/ for vari-ous irrigation methods and applications. Since almost 50 percent of potable water used in Florida is used in the landscape, its particularly important to determine if you are applying the right amount of water to your lawn and arent applying too much to plant beds. e Extension Master Gardener phone service (904-255-7450) has recently been getting enquiries from homeowners about a leafspot they are seeing on Japanese privet (Ligustrum japonicum). It is most likely a species of Cercospora fungus, and can be treated with suitable fungicides. is article describes the appearance of the leafspot, and suggests treatments: https:// tinyurl.com/ydhmvv3e. For any leafspot problem it helps to rake up and dispose of fallen leaves to reduce the fungus spores spreading. As summer progresses, increasing hu-midity is usually followed by increases in disease and insect problems, but it is important to make sure to identify what is wrong before applying a remedy. In the case of lawns, treating for fungus when the specic disease hasnt been identi-ed is both pointless and harmful the problem will only get worse. And even if the diagnosis is clear, the timing and mode of application of fungicides can be tricky to get right, and a reputable lawn and yard service may be better able to tackle it (see http://edis.ifas.u.edu/pp154). If you wish to deal with it yourself, but are unsure of the diagnosis, take a bagged sample of the diseased plant material, including all parts that show signs of disease, not just the leaves, to the Extension service at 1010 N. McDu. If its something dicult to diagnose, the University of Florida has a service to identify plant diseases (http:// edis.ifas.u.edu/sr007). Insects should also be correctly identied, since so many are actually benecial pred-ators of the insects which eat our plants. (More than 90 percent of the insects in our landscapes are good guys: http://edis. ifas.u.edu/in120). e larvae of lady beetles (ladybugs) are one example, as they look nothing like the adults, but both life stages eat pesky aphids (see https://tinyurl. com/bqroxn7). Unfortunately the larvae of one species of lady beetle can be mistaken for mealybugs, which could make them a target for the insecticide spray, to the real detriment of the garden. If you enjoy learning about dierent aspect of gardening, you may appreciate a BBC podcast (from the UK) called Gar-deners Question Time. It has been broad-cast weekly since 1947, from dierent towns, cities, and inspiring gardens across the British Isles. e format is simple: a panel of experts answers questions from the audience. If it sounds a little dry, I can assure you thats not the case, although British humor can be a little dierent... Closer to home, for a little lighter read-ing, including a whole host of timely tips, check out the May-June issue of A New Leaf: https://tinyurl.com/y9yfxd89, avail-able in early May. Stay cool and happy gardening. e premise is simple down on his luck Nomax is lonely and drunk and is vis-ited by ve men who jump out of an old timey radio to per-form songs by R&B pioneer Louis Jordan in this revue at Al-hambra eatre and Dining entitled Five Guys Named Moe. Part conscience and part advisors, the ve singers, all named Moe, appear to an increasingly accepting and collaborative Nomax (Jereme Raickett). e strength of this show is the vocal talent of the ve guys Big Moe (Byron Glenn Willis), No Moe (Damien De-Shaun Smith), Little Moe (David Berry), Eat Moe (Rendell Anthony DeBose), and Four-Eyed Moe (Darryl Reuben Hall) and the infectious quality of Jordans music. (Raickett, as Nomax, is equally gifted.) A true ensemble eort, the vocals are so strong it is dicult to single out any member of the cast. e ve Moes and Nomax have an enjoyable chemistry that charms early on, while their voices blend into smooth harmonies. From the hoedown notes of Safe, Sane and Single to the island beat of Push Ka Pi Shi Pie, Jordans music runs the gamut of musical styles. Saturday Night Fish Fry is even acknowledged to be a precursor to modern rap music. Is You Is or Is Your Aint my Baby? is probably the revues best known hit, but it doesnt matter as the Moes handle each song and genre with jubilant energy. e accompanying jazz band, which remains inside the oversized old timey radio on the stage due to some creative lighting and placement of an opaque curtain, is terric. Featured are Anthony Felton on keyboards, Chanel Miller on drums, Brooks Clarke on electric bass, Paul Jackson on trumpet, Alex Hernandez on reed and Nicholas Carter on trombone. Like the singers, they switch musical styles eortlessly. Choreography by James Kinney is fast paced and entertaining. All the Moes have their individual personalities and dance and act accordingly. From Little Moe in his shiny shoes mugging for the audience to Eat Moe wondering where his next meal is coming from, there is a lot to keep ones attention. An audience participation conga line concludes the rst act and the party continues into the cabaret featured in the second act. Chef DeJuan Roy has once again created a special menu inspired by the show. Diners have the option of Moes Salad or Field Pea Soup for the rst course and then Turkey Meatloaf, Saturday Night Fish Fry, Smoked Boston Butt or Curry Sweet Potato Stew for an entree. Save room for delicious Blueberry Pie Pockets or a Mini Pistachio Bundt Cake for dessert. Five Guys Named Moe will be on stage at Alhambra eatre and Dining through May 6.
