lenness withdrew a prior
application in July because of
concerns about noise, parking,
security and cleanliness. She
met recently with city staff and
Alan Dickinson, who owns the
North Beach Entertainment
Center adjacent to the theater
property to address those issues.
"I basically pulled out and
said 'no way'," she said
Thursday. "Alan called and said
he would help me in any way
possible. I said 'you do the work
and I'll be there'."
In a letter to commission
members, Dickinson urged sup-
port for the project and the revi-
talization of the center which he
said "has never really taken off."
"The residences behind the
entertainment center have seen
a robust improvement since the
redevelopment of the blighted
Pic "N Save," Dickinson said in
the Dec. 1 letter.
"It is likely without the cata-
lyst of Freebird Live, the area

Committee studying districts
for AB will meet Wednesday
by ALEXANDRA KUNMMERNES
The first meeting for the newly appointed
district election representation study commit-
tee in Atlantic Beach will be held Wednesday.
The meeting will take place in commission
chambers at Atlantic Beach City Hall, located
at 800 Seminole Road.
Members will discuss Florida sunshine law
and future meeting schedules. The meeting is
open to all.
The committee was established to study and
report on the possibility of going to district
representation in Atlantic Beach.
Mayor Don Wolfson initiated the idea so
that all citizens in each district would receive
Some have suggested that district represen-
tation is needed to make sure all sectors of the
community have a voice on the commission.
Others have said that the small size of the city
makes such districts unnecessary and a bur-

Using automated system
by ALEXANDRA KUNIMMERNES
Once a week garbage collection in Atlantic
Beach using automated systems could be con-
sidered as the city mulls options for future serv-
The city's current contract expires in May,
2007 and city staff wants commissioners' per-
mission to begin negotiations with the lowest
priced vendor for sanitation services, according
to City Manager iun Hanson.
Of the four proposals received, the least cost-
ly one is from Waste Services of Florida (VWSI)
which offers a once a week, automated garbage
pick up for Atlantic Beach residents, Hanson
Under that option, a driver will operate a
truck with a mechanical arm that will pick up
the garbage container, issued by the utility, and
dump it into the truck.
The proposal options, which will be present-
ed to the commission early next year, also
include an automated twice-a-week collection
or keeping the existing twice per week pick up
with individuals providing their own trash
receptacles. The contract if for both commer-
cial and residential customers.
Yard waste collection and recycling collection
would remain the same with a once a week pick
up, Hanson said.
WSI has the lowest prices across the board
and has been aggressive with its pricing,
Hanson said. The new contract would either be
on a five or seven year basis.
"We're recommending the lowest priced
option," Hanson said.
The Jacksonville Beach City Council recently
opted to keep twice a week pickup, but phase in
automation. They balked at the cost of com-
"plete conversion to automation.
Bright lights at '
AB beach to be
shielded by JEA
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
Lights that shine on the beach from the Sea
Turtle hotel and at public access points will be
changed in the future to avoid interrupting
sea turtle nesting, according to a city manag-
In a recent lighting survey of beachfront
areas, conducted "by the Geomar
Environmental Consultants Inc., it was found
that the greatest number of lights, visible
from Atlantic Beach, came from the Sea Turtle
and the streetlights at the end of the beach
access points, which could impact sea turtle
hatchlings, according to the report. The
endangered creatures can be confused by the
street lights and not make it from the sand
back to the sea.
Representatives of the design team working
on the Sea Turtle remodeling project said that
they would incorporate changes to their light-
ing in the project, according to the report.
JEA was also asked to install shielding on
beachfront street lights, according to the
Graphic furnished by City of AtlanticBeach
The modified plans for the
Mayport Road medians
include paved strips in various
places throughout the medians
with circular landscaped areas
in the center, according to a
report from Atlantic Beach City
Manager Jim Hanson. The
circular landscaped areas will
have crepe myrtles with red or
pink blossoms, although it has
yet to be determined what will
be planted at the base of the
trees. The goal is to have a
plant that would provide color
throughout the year, according
to the report. The larger land-
scaped areas will have palm
trees, according to the report.
New traffic signals are also
planned for the road next year.

TVForensic Filesshoots reenactment of Barber shooting
Patrol cais, sheriff's deputies and yellow,
crime scene tape seen Wednesday at the north
Guana beach walkover south of Ponte Vedra
were.part of a reenactment for the television
show, "Forensic Files."
Sgt. Chuck Mulligan with the St. Johns
County Sheriff's Office said .he and other
deputies helped reconstruct a scene.from the'
Sheriff's Office investigation into the 2002
shooting death of April Barber.
Justin Barber was convicted of murder June
24 in the death of his wife, whose body was
found near the north Guana walkover on the
beach in August 2002,
Film crews from several national television
shows "have all been in town covering this
story,". both during the trial in St. Augustine
and afterward, Mulligan said Thursday.
The prosecution claimed that Barber killed
his wife by shooting her in the face after first
trying to drown her in the ocean.
He was motivated, the prosecution said, by
his infidelity and debt and a $2.1 million life
insurance policy on April Barber.
Barber claimed he and his wife, 27, were
walking on the beach and were accosted by a
robber, who shot the couple before fleeting..
After the shooting, Barber drove north on
State Road A1A about 10 miles before stopping
for help in Ponte Vedra Beach.
" Mulligan said that in addition to the crew
from "Forensic Files," a show on Court TV that'
shows how specific crimes are solved, flie
Barber case has been followed by crews from
"20/20," "Dateline" and "48 Hours Mystery."
He said all those shows will likely be aired,
given the extensive investments in time, per-
sonnel and equipment.
None of the crews have given any indication
- when their shows will be aired, he said, noting
that the "Forensic Files" crew, working
Wednesday was trying to keep a low profile.
But "the minute we set up the crime scene
tape, we got . . . [numerous] phone calls,"

Hartkemeyer, who served as chairman of the
city's Board of Adjustment, said he decided to
run for elected office because "I like where I live
and I love this city."
"It's been a long four months," Hartkemeyer
said Tuesday night at The Rite Spot after the offi-
cial count was in. "It's been a tremendous
amount of fun. I've met some absolutely won-
derful people that I would never had had the
opportunity to meet had I not done this."

At City Hall, Chesnut earned the most votes
with 97 to Hartkemeyer's 38.
"I knew from the bottom of my heart that this
was going to take a lot of work and was going to
be very close," Hartkemeyer said. "But it's all
about gathering your friends and family around
you and having a little fun."
Chesnut said he was disappointed in the final
results and felt the voters east of 3rd Street were
not getting proper representation.

Chesnut said he has serious concerns about

Those not in bloc on
SJ commission should
quit pouting, whining
To the editor:
For six of the past 10 years
there have been voting blocs
on the Board of County
Commission ers ..
Commissioners who were not
a part pf the blocs were
Mr. [Jim) Bryant has had an
active role bordering on lead-
ership in all six. years. In the
first bloc, in 1996, Bryant and
his friends fired the county
administrator, Nick Meiszer,
reduced the requirements for
the job and hired Ben Adams.
Mr. Adams didn't question
,any decision or give unsolicit-
ed or unwanted advice.
The second bloc was pres-
ent during the past four years
of runaway growth. During
the first two years Meiszer,
then a county commissioner,
objected , to the growth but
In the last two years Ms
[Cyndil Stevenson took Mr.
Meiszer's seat and joined the
bloc. Mr. [Ben] Rich was then
odd man out. He opposed the
growth and was ignored like
Now here we are with a new
bloc, which the citizens elect-
ed to stop the runaway
growth and get a handle on
spending.,Rich is now chair-
man and, along with Mr.
[Tom] Manuel and Mr.' [Ron]
Sanchez, 'are making the
changes required to get the
county' back under better
management and control.
At the last commission
meeting Bryant and
Stevenson made it clear that
they found these efforts very,
My dears, all one can say is,
,get over:lt. You don't control
anymore, so stop whining.
Stop walking out early in a
pout and ' a .snit. Isn't that
like quitting? Were you elect-
ed to do that? The'very least
you can do, to earn your
salary, is stay and; take it, like
Meiszer and Rich had to do.

To the editor:
First off, I want to thank
everyone, that came out to
support my campaign. This
was clearly a hard fought bat-
tie. Even though I came up
short I am very proud of what
I was able to accomplish. I,
want to congratulate Steve
Hartkemeyer for his victory.

"his pro development views. I
will continue to work with
Steve to make this beach and
this district this best beach on
the eastern seaboard. I also am
going to ask that Steve repre-
sent ALL of this district.
It is evident that there is a
growing division in this dis-
trict between those east of 9th
street and those that live back
along the intercostal. It's obvi-
ous that our neighbors to the
west of us do not have to deal
with the growth issues that
affect us east of AIA. This
showed in the voting num-
bers. I would hope that Steve
would be as concerned about
this as I am. I plan on address-
ing this with him as soon as
I also want to publicly
thank my campaign team for
all of their hard work and ded- ,:

this far without the help of,

look forward to finding ways'
to utilize Skip's passion in

best, in Jacksonville Beach.
In conclusion, I want to
extend the proverbial olive
branch to the city council.E
While they didn't support me

publicly ask that they stop

Santa can't deliver immediately
hristmas is a tricky busi-
ness. Toys made year

it supports no life but an elder-

globally distributed in one
night in a magic sleigh piloted
by flying reindeer.
The toys are deli ered by a
jolly heavyset man in a red suit
who inexplicably can squeeze
himself into cramped chimneys
without getting stuck or set
Santa Claus also ,possesses
keen clairvoyance skills that
allow him to know if a child was'
naughty or nice. That type of
voyeuristic behavior is very
unsettling, even if good deeds
are rewarded with dolls that wet

cooperated Sunday and we
made the trip to the SeaWalk
Pavilion for the annual holiday
Santa and Mrs, Claus arrived
via fire truck; and' took their
places amid the palm trees to
fulfill the Christmas wishes of
the anxious children.
We waited quietly for over an
hour, subdued by free chocolate
chip cookies. But the quiet was

would receive the coveted danc-

my still-sniffling son complete
yet another draft of his wish list,

the heap. Now all I have to do is

himself fills out the gift tag.
Good grief, Charlie Brown a classic
It has been 41 years since the
"A Charlie Brown
Christmas" special first,
aired. It was broadcast again
recently and the, show holds,
more power over me now than
it did when I was a kid.
I think,I know why.
In the late 1950s 'and early,
1960s, Americans, bolstered by
stability and prosperity, mar-
ried young and had large fami-
lies., In my neighborhood, we
had six kids, the Kreigers five,
the Gillens four, and so on.
The design was simple then
for many folks: Many men ana
women believed that when'
they married, they became one
under God.. They believed their,
role was to sacrifice for their
children, so their children
could have better lives than
they. - , . 1. ' .
Their mission was to teach
their kids good values and to
provide them with an excellent
education. That's why so many
moved into our neighborhood.
It was, located a few blocks from
the Catholic church' and
It was a traditional time, to
be sure. Most of the dads went
off to work while, most of the
moms kept an eye on both kids
And although life for adults
certainly had its'limitations,
and challenges, there was no
better time to be a kid.
Especially during Christmal.
At Catholic school, we
kicked off Christmas prepara-
tions one month before the big
day. We put up decorations,
sold items to raise money for
the needy and practiced for
Christmas concerts (we sang
real Christmas songs, too, such
as "Silent Night" and "Hark the.
Herald Angels Sing").
We were just as busy at
home. My mother was a master
at building suspense. She
played Mitch Miller's
Christmas albums on the stereo
mo0t nights after dinner and
whistled to the tunes as we
hung decorations and talked
.over what to get for one anoth-
er. She celebrated the mystery
of giving and taught us that
being kind and helping others
were the best things we could
Silly as it may sound today,
the TV Christmas specials were
a real event in our home. We
all packed into the family room
and plugged in the tree. We
turned off all the lamps so that
the Christmas lights would
shine bright. Then we'd wait
with great anticipation for the

sive antlers strapped to his tiny
head, jumped up on the back

me, but I was always relieved

all was the "A Charlie Brown
Christmas" special, a show that
captured half the viewing audi-
ence when it first ran on Dec.

everyone around him fails to
see the true . meaning of

Christmas, but real estate.
To resolve his depression,
Charlie Brown throws himself
into work as the director of the
Christmas play. But that soon
falls apart, too.
Distraught, he follows a light
in the east and finds his way to
a ,Christmas tree lot. The only
tree he can find is a small sick-
I When he brings it back, the
others mock him. But then
Linus comes to the rescue.
Linus tells Charlie Brown he,
knows -the real meaning of
Christmas. He tells the story of
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on Earth, peace, goodwill
toward men," he says, quoting
from the Bible.
Suddenly, the other charac-
ters are transformed. They
become compassionate and
'concerned. They decorate the
tree and transform it into a
thing of beauty. They wish
Charlie Brown a Merry
Christmas and sing a
This show holds tremendous
power over me still because it
brings back powerful child-
hood memories -- memories of
security and love and the antic-
ipation of Christmas morning.
But I love it for another rea-
son. Despite Christmas being
based on the birth of Christ, a
historical figure - despite that
the show's innocence, simplici-
ty and honesty still make it a
ratings winner - it would never
be made today.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader
Fall hike warms body, heart and soul
A, t long last my shingles
have receded to a mem-
ory, and hiking in our
cool autumn woods is once
again my preferred pastime.
To kick off my delayed solitary
hiking season, I drove to Little
Talbot Island State Park to
revisit my favorite hiking trail
through the woods and down
the beach - months since I've
been there. Far, far too long.
Immediately upon embark-
ing down the natural trail
near the ranger station, I was
welcomed into the woods. A
small gopher tortoise, fist-
sized, was crossing the path.
Trying not to disturb it, but
wanting a sense of scale, I
photographed my hand beside
it. After a momentary startled
close-up response, soon the
tortoise was again walking
along its chosen path, back
into the brush where it had
S come from. It's not often I see
a baby tortoise, and the sight
cheered me. Babies mean
reproduction is happening,
and' the Talbot Island State
Park tortoise population is
keeping pace. Although'.tor-
toises are crowded out of .
much of our area, as concrete
covers their burrows, here at
least they-are safe.
Further down the path,
another tortoise chugged
ahead of me, seemingly lead-
ing the way along the trail,
going the same way I planned
to, into the woods, toward the
sea. Two tortoises in just a few
minutes - it was a new record
for me along this trail.
Tortoise-like mammals also
rustled in the woods along the
trail - armored armadillos -
more common, and in some
areas somewhat of a nuisance,
but here in the park, I wel-
-comed the sight of therri,
nearsightedly foraging in the
dirt for their insect prey. A
flock of mourning doves flew
across my path near the
dunes, and here and there a
woodpecker flew from one
tree to another.
It's unusual to walk this trail
- or any other in the woods -
and see so many animals
moving about too. Most often
you can hear the animals
rustling, the birds calling,
twigs snapping, but camou-
flage and stealth hide most of
the perpetrators from view.
Signs of animals - their tracks,
their scat, their holes in the
trees, their burrows, are
always visible if you look, but
seeing this many animals out
and about was a treat.
When I reached the beach
there were more animals to
greet me here, too. On the
beach willets were spaced
equidistantly, gleaning prey
amidst the terns and gull. Past
the surf were the expected
floating pelicans, and just
beyond a splash as an osprey
dove for a fish and the dorsal
fins of passing dolphins. I was
the sole human being, alone
but not lonely. The world was
alive with other beings that
kept me company, immersed
in their own explorations as
important as mine.
But, wait, what was that out
beyond the pelicans, some-
thing dark, a whale, a shark?
No, a surfer! Another human
out-enjoying the wildness of
the beach in winter! From the
distance, the surfer looked like
another form of wildlife, as
comfortable in the sea as the
pelicans and dolphins, intent
in his wait for just the right
wave. For a long while I
watched the active marine life
around me, until the storm
clouds caught my attention.
The day was cloudy when I
entered the forest, then driz-
zling and now, by the time I
hit the beach, the dark clouds
in the near distance were rum-
bling thunder. Suddenly I saw
not just the lone surfer but a
dozen of them farther away,
their survival instincts alert to
the approaching storm.
It was time for all of us
humans to leave the beach. I
walked along the tide line
back to the beach parking lot.
The young surfers stretched
down the beach in front of
me and behind, with their
surfboards in their arms or fas-
tened to their bicycles, black
specks in the distance, then
coming closer, all heading for
the parking lot too. I felt one
with them, a middle-aged lady
in sneakers and jeans, a part
of the ocean shore as much as
they were. As some of them
caught up to me and passed,
we exchanged brief pleas-
antries and one asked me for
the time before we returned
again to our own thoughts
By the time 1 reached the
car, it was raining, and I was
wet but far from cold. My
five-mile hike had warmed my
body from exercise, yes, but
more than this, my heart and
soul were warmed again after
a too-long, healthenforced
hiatus. Now, after two months
of shingles, I was whole once
more, alive and well and
recharged, finally, at last. Ah.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader * Page 9A
rise to the
From the season-opener, a
showdown with highly-
regarded but mostly
unknown Memphis University
School, to last week's road
playoff win at Tallahassee
Lincoln, the Nease football
team has prided itself on rising
to the occasion this season.
When critics scoffed that
the Panthers couldn't possibly
repeat as state champs without
uber-quarterback Tim Tebow
and receivers like Ryan Ellis
and Austin Silvoy, head coach
Craig Howard just smiled to
himself and took comfort in
knowing what others did not:
Nease boasts a talented core of
players with a burning desire
to shatter the idea that Tebow
was responsible for all of last
"Each team has to establish
* its own destiny," Howard said
before the start of the 2006
campaign. "The team motto
last year was, 'A team to be
remembered.' They certainly
lived up to that motto.
"This year, it's 'Strengthen
the tradition.' It's taken a few
hard years to build a tradition
here - a tradition of winning,
a tradition of e.oitinglfootba-l
- and our boys want to
strengthen and protect that
* tradition this season."
Ted Stachitas showed
glimpses' of what was possible
when he filled in for the
injured Tebow during a couple
of playoff games last year. The
junior signal-caller brings a
quiet intensity to the field on
every snap. After a game, even
a blowout victory, Stachitas
remembers his mistakes with
far greater clarity than his
All-World guard James
Wilson, whom Howard says is
every bit as good at his posi-
tion as Tebow was at QB, has
dominated in every game he's
played this season. Wilson,
along with Clyde Yandell and
center Mike Ludwick, anchor a
line that triggers the Panthers'
And Zach Tronti, a diamond
in the rough plucked from the
Nease baseball team, has
keyed a punishing ground
attack that wears out oppo-
Add a stifling defensive line,
boosted by Danny Russell and
Kyle Timpane, athletic line-
backers and a fleet, oppor-
tunistic secondary, and it's
easy to see why coordinator
Danny Cowgill's crew posted
five shutouts this vear.
And then there's special
teams. Kicker Allen Schaefer
booted a 55-yard field and has
been Mr. Automatic on extra
points. Punter Zack Cooper
has delivered some soaring
kicks to get the Panthers out
of trouble on a number of
occasions. Return men Hunter
Bates, Mario Butler and Justin
Grant routinely set Nease up
in great field position.
A talented group of
receivers, led by Christian
Dennis and Quinton Huggins,
emerged right on cue.
Succinctly, those who pre-
dicted Nease's cupboard was
bare after last year's title run
were flat-out wrong.
There were pitfalls along the
way - injuries, of course, and
Slate-season news that the pro-
gram was being penalized for
FHSAA violations - but some-
how the Panthers stayed
focused on their one over-
"It won't be easy to get back
to Miami, and we definitely
, have a target on us because
we're defending state
champs," Howard said, pre-
sciently, last August. "But hav-
ing played in some big games,
we know how to win. That's

Senior Danny Russell (250) is

The cooler- temperatures
help me get into the
spirit of the season,
and although I am no
longer crazy about a lot of
cold days, I love waking up
We have had a freeze
warning and tonight we are
to get another one.
As I've said numerous
times, whether your plant
material gets affected by the
.cold is a factor of choice of
plants and your very indi-
.vidual micro climate, i.e. do
you live close to a large
body of water, do you have
a heavy tree canopy, do you
have healthy turf and trees,
These factors will mini-
mize the negative impact of
I know how busy every-
one is at this time of year, so
I will be brief in my review
of precautions you need to
take to minimize the poten-
tial damage a freeze could
bring to your landscape.
Perhaps you can just cut
out this next part, put it on
your fridge and refer to it
when need be.
1. Water 24 to 36 hours
prior to the expected freeze.
2. Never water during a
freeze. Never water just prior
: 3. Turn your irrigation sys-
tem to "Manual" NOW.
.4. Avoid mowing, spray-
ing, pruning, fertilizing right
before a predicted freeze.
5. Cover tender plant
material before sunset, and
remove the cover in the
6. Bring any tropical plant
into the garage, porch, or
inside to the coolest room.
7. Bank soil, dirt, or use
insulated foam around the
graft of cold sensitive citrus.
8. Do not plant anything
right before a predicted
freeze, even "freeze tolerant"
9. Poinsettias must have
protection. Bring them into
10. Pick citrus fruit from
the tree iif emps-are predict-
ed in the 20's, and if they
are to stay there for four
11. Mulch shallow-rooted
plants such as azaleas and
dogwoods to give added
protection to roots.
12. Water the day after
the freeze, especially if
winds are present during the

My blessings to you espe-

prepare for your holidays.
Take a few moments to
reflect on the real meaning

Bring a pillow to lengthy 'Holiday'
A riter-director Nancy
Holiday" turns out
to be better than expected.
But as with Meyers' previ-
ous movie "Something's Got
to Give"...oh, my word, does
this woman need a good
editor. Like "Give," this
movie is a frothy romantic
comedy that could handily
clock in at 90 minutes if
Meyers would stop falling in
love with her every shot.
(This one's 138 minutes;
bring a heinie pillow.)
The premise is that two
women who are overcoming
painful fove affairs decide to
do a "house exchange" over
the Christmas holiday --
each will take possession of
the other's home and
belongings for two weeks.
i.I'm tragically unhip, so
maybe this trade thing is
the latest trend. Still, in
these days of stalkers and
terrorists, who is so desper-
ate for a holiday that she'll,
essentially, turn her private
life over to a total stranger?)
Amanda (Cameron Diaz)
is an overworked Hollywood
movie-trailer editor. Iris
iKate Winsleti is a British
newspaper writer whose
unrequited love with a co-
worker goes completely
kaput when he gets engaged
to a different co-worker.
Naturally, both women are
eager to get away from their
bitter surroundings and go
to some place with no avail-
able men. I don't think I'm
giving away major plot
points to say that if the
women's new settings didn't
get them romantically
involved, there would be no
The movie's first half-hour
is like waiting for a punch
line from a.comic who has
to include every minute
detail in his joke. When Iris
hits Amanda's L.A. home,
there's shot after shot of her
thrilling.to Amanda's elabo-
rate mansion. And you,re
thinking, "Yes, Ms. Meyers,
your movie sets are splen-
did. Can we get on with the
We're also meant to be
touched by Iris' ongoing
crying jag (also an overused
gag in "Give"), and not one
but two scenes where each
woman declares her inde-
pendence by rocking out to
a loud CD in the middle of
her new surroundings.
Happily, the movie finally
detours from Clicheville
when Iris comes across her
new neighbor Arthur Abbott
(Eli Wallachi, a retired and
Wallach is the movie's
pleasant surprise, endowing
swipes at New Hollywood
with a surprising thoughtful
and original character. As it
happens, Wallach's 91st (!)
birthday was yesterday, and
yet he's the one giving a
present to the audience.
Once the movie finally
gets its footing, it never
looks back. Amanda's
chance encounter with a
local playboy (Jude Law)
gives some real heart to the
movie, as does Iris' meeting
with a local movie composer
(Jack Black, who tones down
his usual party-animal per-
sona and gives a real per-
formance this time).
Among other debits, Diaz
(as usual) overdoes the tall-
gawky-goddess routine that
Tea Leoni wore to a nub
years ago. (And who but
Diaz would run through
snow and ice without taking
off her high heels?) And
Meyers includes endless
Hollywood diatribes that
will be lost on non-film-
buffs (though one of them
leads to a very funny
Yet for every debit in the
movie, there's something to
genuinely charm you. So the
movie gets by on a pass.
Hopefully, Meyers will follow
her own character's (Amanda)
advice and eventually shut up
for a little bit.

been going to the gym for years. Even with all of this, I still felt and
j .�, .. looked like I was missing out. I was in bad shape when I was referred to
V .Fitness Together back in August. I was heavier than I should have
been, my clothes weren't fitting like they used to, and I had no muscu-
'I '-l ' lar definition. I felt like I was 'spinning my wheels" in the gym - I was
working so hard but got no real results. I had no direction.
. Thanks so much for getting me back on track! In just eight weeks of
I " training, my results have far exceeded my expectations. With your
help, I have trimmed off almost 3% of the fat on my body, my heart
rate has improved dramatically, and I am stronger and more flexible
than ever. My tennis game has also improved dramatically. A once sub-
par backhand is now my power shot. My partners can't believe the
improvement! Most importantly, I feel better about myself, and this
positive outcome is just as important as the change in my physical
Thanks so much for motivating and holding me accountable - I look

It's. finally time to sit down
and enjoy a special Christmas
dinner starring beef tenderloin
seasoned with a distinctive
smoky paprika rub and accom-
panied by a trio of roasted root
vegetables. A fabulous cranber-
Sry and orange snowflake-
shaped cake makes a spectacu-
lar finale for the eyes and the
Seasonal Savvy :
During this busy season, it's
a good idea to order your beef
roast in advance. A tenderloin
yields four 3-ounce cooked
servings per pound. To ensure
perfectly roasted, beef, use a
thermometer to determine
doneness. And don't forget to.
let beef stand 15 to 20 minutes
for easier carving.
The unique snowflake cake
pan is great for Christmas and
all through the winter. Use it to
make, impressive cakes (either
from scratch or a mix), beauti-
* ful breads or even' your favorite
gelatin recipe. This 10-cup pan
has a premium nonstick sur-
face so foods release perfectly
and cleanup is a breeze. It is
available for purchase at

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader
Around the Home
Creature comforts make living easier
Like to think I have good
ideas. However, a few
weeks ago, I found out that
roller skating after the age of
40 is not a good idea because I
fell square on my right wrist
and broke it.
Now, I have a cast on my
arm in a lovely shade of Kelly
green. But, I've learned a few
lessons about coping with the
limitations of being one-hand-
For starters, typing has been
a real struggle. Fortunately, I
had a few columns already
written, so I could stop writ-
ing for almost a month and
let my wrist heal. .
Even so, I was faced with a
looming deadline and an
immovable plastic cast as I
pondered topics I could write
And, rather than sharing
my frustrations llbiuftmy-lim-
stations, I thought I'd share
some of the things that have
made my home suit me even
with limited hand use -
things I didn't think I'd have
to worry about so soon, but
glad I planned for anyhow.
Good design -
. A well designed home is
one that does more than just
stand there looking pretty.
It's what interior designers call:
The function of a home
relates to how you're able to
use the home and the type of
ease - or lack of it - that you -
have as you interact with it.
When we planned our home,
I wanted to build in as much
ease as possible and the plan-
ning paid off.
All the counters in the
house are tall '- including the
bathroom counters in the
kids' bathrooms because they
won't be little forever.
Tall counters are.much easi-
er on your back and don't
make you stoop and bend
over as much. Even my bed is
on a high bed frame, and that
helps me because I don't have
to bend over so far just to
make the bed. It would be
much harder to make the bed
if I had to bend way down
with one good hand to make
If your bed is low, raise it
with bed risers. These are a set
of four plastic risers that fit
under the bed frame feet. It
makes a bed higher, which
makes it easier to get in and
out of and easier to make in
Find them at home centers
such as Bed, Bath, and Beyond
or Linens-n-Things. Taller toi-
lets are also a help.
We installed "comfort
height" toilets, which are the
same height as an average
chair, making them about two
inches taller than regular toi-
Because they're the same
height as a chair, they're
much easier to sit on and rise
I also installed toilet paper
hooks instead of the roller-
type hanger. With these, toilet
paper can be changed easily
with one hand versus the two
hands needed for the spring
roller on typical toilet paper
Single-handed operation is
also a feature of the faucet fix-
tures I chose as well.
I have family members with
limited hand use, so I had sin-
gle-lever faucets installed.
Moreover, I thought that
these fixtures would be easier
to operate for anyone regard-
less of hand ability.
This month, I'm more grate-
ful than ever for all-of these
decisions to bring ease and
function into our daily lives
by choosing to incorporate
design elements that make
our living easier.
You can, too. What's nice is
that with today's design
options, beauty and function
are no longer mutually exclu-
Make your living space one
of ease by choosing elements
that will make your home
more comfortable and easier
You never know when you
might need that ease in your

Towel hooks are much easier to use than towel -bars, especially for someone with limited hand
use. Consider replacing towel bars and toilet paper holders with hook versions.
by KIATE WORTH
EASY CLEAN - To get those
encrusted bits of food off your
work surface, move the lid of a
milk carton over the surface
pressing hard. It will scrape
them off easily and quickly
without harming the surface.
STAIN REMOVER - Even
though I use so-called "invisi-
ble" deodorant, I still get those
unsightly white marks on my
T-shirts. To remove, them, I
sponge them with a hydrogen
peroxide solution (20 volume
strength - 1 part to 6 parts
water), then apply liquid.deter-
gent to the area. I launder as
usual. Unfortunately, if there's
a build-up over time, this may
not work. Linda F.
MONEY SAVER - Instead of
buying cooking spray, put your
favorite cooking oil in a spray
bottle. It does the same job for
less money. Lindsay T.
NO WASTE' - Instead of
throwing away heels- of bread,
freeze them and use to make
your own bread crumbs or
croutons. Julia K.
FRAGRANCE TIP - Make
your own low-cost air freshen-
er spray by filling a spray bottle
with distilled or purified water
and add 10 to 15 drops of your
favorite essential oil. Virginia
MORE MONEY SAVING - To
save money, buy a gallon of
window cleaner for yourTvehi-
cle, then pour into a spray bot-
tle. It cleans as well as top
brand cleaners and lasts a lot
longer. Tammy B.
GRANDMA'S TIP - I learned
this from my grafidmother:
Baking soda can be used for
many jobs around the house,
scrubbing sinks, bathtub,
stove, refrigerator and in the
laundry. It leaves everything
smelling nice and cleans just as
well as any cleanser without
scratching enamel. Brittany L.
