asked to help

after report of

shots fired

Gun shots at a rental unit are
a cause for concern for an
Atlantic Beach landlord.
A woman who owns rental
units on Jordan Street, wrote an
e-mail on Dec. 7 to Mayor Don
Wolfson expressing concern for
her tenants' safety after fired
gunshots were heard over the
course of several days. She
referred to the incidents as
S"gang warfare."
She could not be reached for
additional comment.
However, Police Chief David
Thompson said he disagrees
'with the term "gang warfare"
'because no one was shot or shot
:at, which is usually what occurs
'during gang-related incidents,
and the gunshots seemed to be
Random. The city has had gang-
related shootings in the last 20
years, but usually people were
'the target, he said.
. "There's no specific pattern to
this behavior," Thompson said,
adding that it appears to be an
individual or a handful of indi-
'iduals attempting to draw
attention to themselves and
:aggravate the community.
, Although Thompson said
police have not found any shell
'casings in the area, the police
have dedicated more patrol
vehicles to the area, he said. In
an e-mail response, he said the
neighborhood is one of the
most heavily patrolled areas.
"Angtime someone's shooting
a gun in Atlantic Beach, we have
an interest," Thompson said.
Thompson said the police
department has worked hard to
establish partnerships .ahit. ct.i-
munication with citizens in this
area to emphasize the impor-
tance of keeping the police
informed. One problem is that
people are not calling the police
when they encounter problems,
he said.
"We will be glad to meet with
residents to obtain information,
provide guidance, and encour-
age their participation in
addressing crime problems,"
Thompson said in the e-mail.

Cosby-style sweaters to Festivus

Holiday party themes offer originality


Leah Kurinsky, program director of Chabad at the Beaches,
talks with a group of youngsters about Hanukkah Tuesday while
sitting in front of a blown-up menorah at the Neptune Beach
Library. And while she does, 2-year-old Abigail Fixel of Ponte
Vedra Beach mugs.

Christmas is usually a time for tradition and cus-
tom but some Beaches residents are mixing things
up this year with some very untraditional parties
and occasions.
A holiday dinner with family is normal, but a
progressive.dinner at different family members'
houses via a shortbus is definitely out of,the ordi-
"We're really excited about it," said Andrea
Forsyth, who is participating in the event with her
sisters and cousins and is also in charge of the
A dozen relatives have rented a "shortbus," the
latest tend as an alternative to limousines, for a
progressive dinner party, which will start out at one
family member's house and move on to five other
house for each course of the meal.
The bus is equipped with a \ideo system and
speakers and partiers can bring your own food and
beverages, according to Forsyth.
But, riding through the Beaches on a shortbus
isn't the only unusual event going on around
Remember the Cosby show and its ever-so-80s
style sweaters? Maybe next year, if you've exhaust-
ed yourself trying to find the perfect outfit to wear
to a holiday party, you could try what Ponte Vedra
Beach resident Leah Davis suggested and have a
"Cosby sweater" party. As a requirement, everyone
must show up wearing a sweater which resembles
what a member of the Huxtable family might have
worn back in the day. No more black tie affairs and
elegant gowns, just funky sweaters and fond 80s


A talking Santa greets guests with a story as they enter the Poland's house for
the annual Rotary Christmas party, which they have hosted for the past 16
years. Jacquie Poland begins decorating in July. Throughout the house, there
are an estimated 200 Santas, some collected from the couple's travels.

Students from Beaches Episcopal School per-
form at a "Festival of Lessons and Carols" at
St. Paul's by the Sea Episcopal Church
recently for family and friends. They sang
carols and reenacted Christmas stories at the
program. Each grade level also performed a
holiday song. Mary and Moses sat in the
manger as shepherds gathered around to
honor the birth of Jesus. There were also vis-
its from angels and the three wise men.





Arrest follows


on the ICW

A Jacksonville man was arrested late
Wednesday after a car chase down Palm
Valley Road followed a confrontation on
the Intracoastal Waterway, where a 7-year-
old boy was nearly thrown into the water
and heated words were exchanged.
Deputies arrested Alvaro M. Borge, 29,
about 9:45 p.m. on Palm Valley Road, after
an SUV pulling a boat trailer and pursued
by three patrol cars was stopped by traffic at
the State Road A1A intersection, according
to a report.
Borge was charged with three counts of
aggravated assault, fleeting and eluding
police, criminal mischief and possession of
marijuana and drug paraphernalia, deputies
He was released from the St. Johns
County jail Thursday afternoon on $2,700
The arrest came hours after deputies were
called to the Palm Valley bridge, where a
man who had been fishing with his two
young sons told police his boat had been
hit by another boat, damaging the boat and
nearly throwing one of the boys into the
The victim said he and his boys, ages 6
and 7, were fishing from his boat about 6
p.m. when a sporty, 22-foot boat headed
toward them.
The police report notes the victim turned
on his boat's lights and tried to get out of
. the way of the boat coming toward them.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader

Continued from A-1
Some party hosts have man-
aged to keep a holiday theme,
but with a twist.
For 'example, Jacksonville
Beach residents Bob and
Jacquie Poland may throw a
traditional Christmas party,
but their decorating goes far
beyond a wreath, a tree and a
few ornaments.
The Polands have been col-
lecting Santas of every shape,
and sizp and holiday sou-
venirs for the past 28 years,
since the birth of their daugh-
ter. There are an estimated
200 " santas in the* house,
according to Jacquie Poland.
One tree is adorned with
ornaments from all' over the
world. The family collects.
ornaments on their travels,
but also make a lot of their
own decorations, shesat.
For example, Jacquie made
two topiaries that sit by her.
'fireplace and she-also created
and welded the nativity scene
that is displayed in her front
The house decoration is fit
for a magazine spread. It
requires so' much, work that
set up work usually begins in

July, Jacquie said.
"I pretty, much do it
myself," said Jacquie, who
does not enlist the help of a
professional designer.
The Polands have been
throwing the Rotary
Christmas party for the past
16 years and this year expect-
ed 125 people.' Each person
was asked to bring a teddy
bear, each of which will be
donated to a child at Wolfson
Children's Hospital, she said.
Other Beach hosts have
turned their holiday parties
into humorous events.
Jamie Odum hosted a-
Seinfeld-themed "Festivus"
party, complete with argyle
sweaters and the Festivus
pole, an unadorned metal
pole.. The non-traditional
invitations to the party adver-
tised a "tradition of debauch-
ery" and "drunkenness."
"We just wanted to change.
it up a little bit," said Odum.
"Everybody had a good time,"
he said, adding that he plans
to keep up the Festivus theme
next year.
According to Wikipedia an
online encyclopedia, Festivus
is a nondenominational holi"

day featured on a 1997
episode of the sitcom
Seinfeld. Festivus was invent-
ed in 1966 when the father of
a future "Seinfeld" writer
crafted a unique family holi-
day with untraditional prac-
tices such as the wrestling of
the household -head to the
ground. According to
Seinfeld, Festivus is celebrated
each year on Dec. 23, but
many people celebrate it
other times, often in early
December. Its slogan is "A
Festivus for the rest of us!" An
aluminum pole is generally,
used in lieu of a Christmas
tree or other holiday decora-
tion, shedding holiday mate-

Merry Christmas

to all at Beaches

Whether you prefer Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas or
Happy Holidays, the messages are all intended to convey
We join the chorus and wish you, Leader� readers, the
very best of this joyful season.
We offer our warmest appreciation to all of you for giv-
ing your time throughout the year to read The:Leader and

tributed photos, news items and other information for
In this time of reflection we are reminded that life at the
Beaches with great neighbors offers a treasure worth more
than nearly anything that can be boxed and wrapped.
Merry Christmas and may the joys of Beach Iling be
enjoyed by you and yours throughout the coming year.

Many made lighting fun

To the editor:

munity held its annual'

community environment that
Iwe do; but most importantly,
how blessed we are to have cit-
izens and businesses that par-
ticipate in, support and enjoy
.that environment.
A very sincere thank you to
the Fletcher High School
Choir, the Fletcher High
School Band, the Mayport

to the Fletcher High School
chapters of the National Honor
Society and Interact Club; the

Last, but certainly not least, a
thank you to Santa, Mrs. Claus
and their helpers.
Again, thank you all per-

supporters and all those who
made this year festivities a suc-
cess. It is your support and
civic pride that make' the

I'm easily distracted

this time of the year,

have three basic rules for
the holiday season:

-Do not ask what I am
, doing at some point in time
more than 12 hours before
the time slot. I won't be able
to answer.
-Do not mess with my gift
list. If you wanted to help
plan, buy, and ship gifts for
60 plus people then you
should have spoken up a long
time ago,
And last but certainly not
LAUNDRY ROOM unless you
want to get lost folding laun-
dry for an hour. That room is
the lethal magnet, the kiss of
death to someone with tight-
ly scheduled agenda.
During the season of frenzy
.urropyiding .the. 251h, py
.l s Inet' , 1i . "i d.' Itc
AL '. 1tere are so many
projects, unfilled lists, and
unfinished projects going on
that it's hard to know which
way to turn, and harder to
stay on task.
Like-many of you, if I find
myself in a room but can't
remember why I'm there, I
can usually go back to the
room I was previously in and
a light bulb clicks on. But this
time of year, my mind is
going 90 miles an hour, plac-
ing and replacing items in pri-
ority position on the "list of
things I absolutely have to get
done today", and the usually
fail-safe plan is no longer safe.
I ordered a sculpture from
an artist in SC in Nov. and
received it on Thanksgiving. I
got an email yesterday
reminding me that I hadn't


paid for it yet and asking if
there was a problem. I quickly
replied that the problem was
that the address was down-
stairs. I'm sure she was all
over that lame excuse. That is,
su.nes she has the dreaded
.'7feared.HI-AbD and car,t
Ef W a room without being
mentally rerouted by objects
that enter the visual field. Let
me explain.
Walking through the family
room, I see the sculpture on
my mantle, and think "oh
gosh I've got to mail that
check, and head downstairs
to my bedroom to find the
address. Unfortunately I have
to walk through the kitchen
to get there, where there are
always dishes to rinse or spills
to wipe. Even if I make it past
the kitchen and head down-
stairs, I pass my son's room
on the way to mine, and see
the eternally unmade bed. So
I walk in to make his bed, and
pick up the dirty clothes that
I know he has to wear the
next day, and on the way out,
see a test paper on his desk

that needs a parent signature,
then, because the dirty
clothes are in my hand, I
remember to walk into the
laundry room, from which I
emerge one hour later with a
pile of folded clothes, leaving
two other loads mid cycle as I
wonder why my son made
that grade on the test and 1,11
bet that you, the reader of
this column, , can't even
remember whiy .I walked
downstairs in th'e first place.
* Next,year I ar investing in
a dry erase board per room to
jot down the reason I'm leav-
ing the room. The winding
trail that eventually, leads me
back to the task that I set out
to do could be cut in half if I
could just look up and see
"artist address", or "green mat
for table". I guess I could
start writing things down on
Q P Im The I "T tf '
ceaT~ysQort on th sp~rt term
memory.,neee to complete
an idea.
I confess the above with
caution, because of the red
flag it waves to the advice-giv-
ing-segment of society. I
know there are herbal and
conventional meds as therapy
for people like me, but I know
the cure: it's called sleep and
lots of it.
I wish you joy, peace, and
rest for this special season.
At least enough rest to
remember why it is that we
celebrate and to Whom we
are truly grateful.
Merry Christmas everyone.

Yen for veggies yields garbage soup

I'm picky. I only eat alone
.* or with someone. To tell
the 'truth, as a widower. I
,get mostly solo sustenance.
Looking back on' the eight
years since my wife, Lucy,
passed on, I feel a sense of
accomplishment over not
having sickened myself with
my cookery. In other words, I
haven't experienced the die
part of my diet. Now that I'm
trying to watch my choles-
terol, I've said a mostly final
adios to the fatty meat that I
used to scarf down. May it rest
in grease.
Anyway, I have always had
a yen for veggies, including
potatoes. When I was playing
football in high school, I
couldn't seem to get enough
to eat, which was understand-
able in a household contain-
ing six kids with big appetites.
You needed a well-developed
boardinghouse reach at sup-,
per time. Back at home after a
date, when everyone else was
in their sack, I'd wash two or
three sizable spuds and roast
them on the gas range burn-
ers. They were burned, alright.

? - .." �-_ : .. :


When done, they looked like
black meteorites, but they,
relieved the hunger.
My culinary talent contin-
ties to this day. I employ a
short but practical recipe for
concocting "garbage. soup."
Ingredients: nearly anything
of plant origin that's in the
fridge and' pantty. This dish
can, be really economical,
especially if you follow the.
practice recommended by a-
friend. In brief, you just use
anything under refrigeration'
that's not green if it isn't sup-

Sposed to be. Then again, I'm
fairly selective.. It depends on
the SHADE of green.
Jokes aside, I'm really not
too fussy about food. In fact,
despite all the grousing over
the grub, I actually liked
U.S.Navy chow. It was hard
for me to see why so many of
the swabbies were griping and
claiming to gulp Turns. I even
savored the powdered eggs.
My son apparently wasn't as
happy, however, with the vict-
uals in the Marine Corps. He
said they often called the
entree "mystery meat." When
buzzards circled, there was
always turkey for supper. ,
Good' show!. I might buy
some turkey legs to gnaw on.
Incidentally, somebody ;told
me why there are so many in
the grocery stores even when
there aren't very many whole
turkeys. This bird said he visit-
ed a, turkey farm and saw a
flock of one-legged gobblers
walking around on small
crutches . ., .
I believe he may have been
pulling MY leg.

Four classes of pre-K students from the
Weekday Ministry at First Baptist Church of
Jacksonville Beach presented a Christmas pro-
gram for the residents of Avante. This is the
sixth year students from the ministry have given
a Christmas performance at Avante, said
Denise Elliot, a pre-K teacher at First Baptist.
Pre-K student Zachary Kelley gives a hand-
made cross to a resident of Avante.

Gifts have a very special place at Christma

I was talking to my daughter
Marley the other day. She's
six, so you can just imagine
how excited she's been about
Christmas. So, I had to ask,
"What are you most excited
about?" And she knows her
dad. She knows what to say. So
she said, "Daddy, it's Jesus
birthday!" So I asked, "What is
it about Jesus birthday that you
like?" Can you guess what she
said? Presents! That's what I'm
talking about!'
The thing is, as a family, we
try so hard to keep the focus of
Christmas in the right perspec-
tive. We don't want to make it
all about what you get. But with
children in the house there's so
much momentum going in that
direction that you can't help but
get excited about gifts - both
giving and receiving. And you
know what? I think there's
something to that.
There's a word we throw
around here a lot at Hodges -
this word grace, and it simply
means an ' undeserved gift.
Here's the cool part though, in
our scriptures it implies both a
receiving and a giving. It's
almost like the more you are
open to receive, the more you
want to give.
I mean, can you remember
the last time you had an experi-
ence that was just beautiful?
Something just touched you?
Maybe someone did something
wonderful for ,you just. wpen
tou fieeded it most. Ori, '-mabe
you saw an act of kindness that
took you by surprise.
I saw a little boy at a homeless
shelter once bend down and kiss
his little sister who was crying
on the forehead. It was moving.
You see that kind of thing and
you'want to respond - you want
to do something. You experi-
ence grace and it's compelling.
You know the guy that wrote
that book Charlotte's Webb -
E.B. White? Years and years ago,
he said it is getting harder and
harder to perceive Christmas
through its wrappings.
That may be true, but I think
there is still something about
the Christmas season that
reminds us that there is beauty
and good in the world around

us. And even as over-commer-
cialized as the season is - I imag-
ine that most of us can't help
but feel that there is something
deeper going on. There is some-
thing compelling, or should I
say Someone, that touches and
inspires the hope, the generosi-
ty, the love that is in every one
-of us. .
My daughter had it right, at
Christmas we do celebrate Jesus
birthday. But it's no ordinary
birthday. It is a celebration that
God loves us so much - that
God would actually break into
our world to touch and change
our lives for the better - and not.
just for today, not just for this
season - but forever. In a sense,
Christmas is. about what we
But unless we respond, we
may never see beyond the wrap-
pings. Tonight, we are going to
kh-ve an oppoW.unity .o expeil,-
fce i ag(ra togeret this
giving and receiving.
When the children came in
this evening, they were given an
object, a gift. We are going to
invite you to come to the
manger, to bring your gift and
lay it at the stable. When you
leave your gift, we invite you to
sit up here, and at the end we
will finish the message together.
Our first gift is a Heart: We
bring you the gift of our hearts.
Lord Jesus, because you came
into this world to show us how
much you love us. With this gift
we promise you our love, our
worship, and our praise.
Our second gift is a loaf of

Which way

will Gator

haters lean?
A friend of mine sarcasti-
cally wondered aloud
across a crowded restau-
rant last weekend, "Hey, John,
are you gonna write about the
Gators again next week?".
� Well let me see, Mike. I.hap-
pen to be a big-time follower
of college football and college
basketball. The tniveisity of,
FlQrida football team is slated
. to, play for a national champi-
onship next month, while the
basketball team just won a
title in April and is currently
ranked fifth in the county.
A large percentage of UF
alumni live in Northeast
Florida and Gainesville is
about 90 miles down the road.
So, yeah, I think I will write
about the Gators again this
week. Thanks for your con-
Mike, by the way, is a
Georgia fan. I'm sad to tell
him that I have no plans to
amp up my coverage of the
Chick-fil-A Bowl any time
* soon ...
Speaking of college football
fans, I'm curious as to how
the non-Gators will approach
the title game between Florida
and Ohio State. How many of
you Dawgs and 'Noles and
'Canes will put aside the hate
for one night to pull for the
team close to home?
My friend Ray Lee, a Florida
State fan, put it like this:
, "This is North against
: Si~Dj. . adt.h' . the�a .q
b It 1 hope they beat Ohio .
State up and down the field."
As it stands, nobody outside
of this area seems to believe
Florida has a chance to win
the game and many feel the
Gators don't belong on the
same field with the Buckeyes.
Considering that Florida
recruits its talent from the
same pool as
Florida State, Miami and
many Southeastern
Conference teams, calling the
Gators an overwhelmingly
inferior opponent is an indi-
rect slap to the face of all
* Southern college football fans.
I know there are those who
would pull for Lucifer's Army.
to beat Florida and that's cer-
tainly understandable. But
given that the Gators will be
representing the South on col-
lege football's biggest stage,
will you reserve a four-hour
window on Jan. 8, 2007, to
forget that you hate pretty
much everything they stand
The University of Miami did
the right thing by hiring long-
time Hurricanes defensive
coordinator Randy Shannon
as its new head football coach.
Though it seems like they
stopped just short of inter-
viewing Pee Wee Herman
before making the hire, athlet-
ic director Paul Dee and uni-
versity president Donna
Shalala must have awakened
and realized that Shannon's
recruiting ties in South Florida
are key to Miami's survival.
Think Ron Zook here.
While he's an unproven
commodity as ahead coach,
Shannon will at least keep the
talent coming to Coral Gables
much like Zook did in
Gainesville when he had the
formidable task of following
Steve Spurrier as Florida's head
coach. Mlix in a good offensive
coordinator, who has yet to be
named, and the 'Canes could
be back in business in no
SThe Jacksonville Jaguars
found a new way to look bad
on Sunday, holding Tennessee
to just 98 total yards on the
day but giving up four
turnovers, three of which
jvent for touchdowns in a 24-
17 loss.
SMaybe QB David Garrard ,
who tossed three interceptions
(two for scores), isn't the
answer after all.

tion of The Beaches Leader.

M Sabina to direct BFAS triathlons

A background in competitive
sports isn't the only thing Doreen
Sabina brings to her new job as race
director for the Beaches Fine Arts
Sprint Triathlon Series.
A former state champion swimmer'
and Stanford University graduate
also is a lover of the arts who has
experienced the thrill of finishing a
triathlon from both ends of the
competition spectrum.
"I saw it from the back of the
pack, and that's given me a great
perspective of the event," said
Sabina, a former BFAS age-group
winner who finished near the back
in 2002 after volunteering to assist a'
first-time triathlete.
"I got to see how some other peo-
ple do the race."
Sabina, 44, placed third overall
among women in the series stand-
ings in 2000, and was third overall
in a BFAS event in 2001.
She took a hiatus from triathlons
after the 2002 race to care for her
ailing mother in Boston, but she
continued to swim and run on a
daily basis.

Doreen Sabina is a two-time state
champion freestyler who swam for
Stanford University.

' "I still credit my love of swimming
from only competing a year in col-
lege," said Sabina, a former middle
distance freestyler who swam for
Stanford in 1980.
"We had five Olympians on our
team. I've been swimming since I

was 8 and had my hand in competi-
tions my whole life.
A Massachusetts native, Sabina

A communications major in col-

Sabina did some marketing for the
BFAS prior to executive director
Kathy Wallis offering her the race
director position.
"I had never heard of triathlons
before 1990," said Sabina, who speni

SCorps after college.
"Kathy said she was losing a race
director and asked if I would consid-

tors, Steve Curran, is also from
Massachusetts and was also in the

Curran was the BFAS race director

Holiday shopping for the sportsman

W ith Christmas Day
just around the cor-
r s ner, many shoppers
are still wondering what gifts
will bring, a wide smile and
welcome thank you from fam-
ily members and friends.
Certainly giving at Christmas
time is not only to enjoy giv-
ing gifts, but enjoying the
feeling of having the recipient
open up their present and don
a thankful smile with gleam-
ing eyes of joy.
Such. was the case last
Christmas when I received a
fish cleaning kit, including
gloves, a knife sharpener and
four different filet knives, all
designed for a multitude of
fish cleaning jobs. The fish
cleaning kit also included a
watertight case. During last
year's fishing season, I used
the fish cleaning kit numerous
times and for a variety of fish-
'ing cleaning projects. More
importantly, the case kept
everything in a safe place so
they couldn't be lost or mis-
placed. ..
There are a multitude of
outdoor gifts that will make
your family and friends happy
Christmas Day. A good place
to start is to simply visit one
of the many local tackle
shops. Christmas time is a
very busy time of year for
local sporting goods stores arid
they often stock up with a
variety of outdoor items for
the Christmas holiday.
in many cases if they are
out of a particular item, they
can have it shipped in the
next day and in plenty of time
for Christmas. If it just hap-
pens to be the wrong gift, it is
a lot easier to return the gift
locally than it is to drive out
of town or ship it back to a
mail order company.
A popular item for stocking
stuffers is pliers. There are two
popular brands of piers on the
market today for hunters,
campers and fishermen.
Gerber and Leatherman pliers
are made from stainless steel
and have all of the accessories
outdoorsmen will need while
out on the water or in the
woods, including a knife,
screwdriver tips, file and even
scissors. The Gerber pliers are
a little easier to open; with

just a snap of the wrist, the
pliers are instantly ready to
unhook a fish or cut a fishing
line. "
Fishing scales also make
excellent Christmas gifts and
come in a wide variety. Boga
Grips have been on the mar-
ket for a few years and allow
fishermen to land their catch
with the gripping end of the
fish scale. The fisherman sim-
ply holds the Boga Grips
straight up and a scale tells
how much the fish weighs.
You can also take a quick
photo of your catch and
release it back in the water, all
without harming or touching
the fish with your hands.
SYou will also find a variety
of fish scales at local tackle
stores that keep track of your
heaviest catch ot the day.
Digital fish scales not only
weigh your catch, but some of
the more expensive fish scales
will keep a record of all of the
fish that you have caught and
their exact weight.
Raingear also makes an
excellent Christmas present
for theoutdoorsman. There is
nothing worse than getting
caught in a rainstorm without
rain gear. Frog Tog raingear is
very popular with both fisher-
men and hunters, because not
only is it waterproof, but it is
light and it breathes well. This
is very important for us
Southern outdoorsmen, partic-
ularly during the summer
Binoculars also make for
excellent Christmas presents.
Fishermen need them to not
only identify rock jetties,
channel markers and towers,

Fishing lures make excellent stocking stuffers for the outdoorsman. Other popular gifts include fishing pliers, fishing rods and reels
and a hand-held VHF radio.

but also to see striking game
fish on the surface at a dis-
tance. Hunters are frequently
using their binoculars to get a
better look at the quality of
game animals before they
make any decisions concern-
ing either killing the game or
waiting for a chance at a
much larger game animal.
Fishing lures make excellent
stocking stuffers. Some of the
more popular topwater plugs
include the Zara Spook, Skitter
Walk, Top Dog and the
Johnny Rattler. All of these
fish-catching surface plugs
resemble fun times on the
water when quality-size game
fish come to the surface when
least expected with heartstop-
ping strikes.
Fishermen can always use a
new fishing rod and reel at
Christmas time. Selecting the

In 2003, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service established
manatee zones that were con-
sidered too restrictive by the
city of Jacksonville. The city
issued a notice of intent to sue.
However, the city, U.S. Fish
and Wildlife and FWC reached
an agreement in January 2005
that resulted in changes to the
federal zones.
As part of the agreement,
FWVC officials agreed to pro-
pose revised state zones that
would match the new, less-
restrictive federal zones in the
St. Johns River.
"The proposal will reduce
confusion about the manatee
zones and allow for a more
consistent and coordinated
enforcement effort throughout
the zones," said Kipp Frohlich,

This time of year, it would be
especially tragic to loose a
loved one. Unfortunately, all
too often, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission is called to inves-
tigate boating accidents which
result in drowning deaths, dur-
ing the holidays as well as
throughout the year.
The death of her son, just
prior to the Christmas holiday,
was how Gay Kite became
involved with FWC.
Gay Kite said her son, John,
was someone who loved the
outdoors and a good swimmer.
John and a friend, Allan
Morone, died while boating on
Half Moon Lake near Ocala on
Dec. 19, 2004. FWC investigat-
ed their deaths.
"I worried about him driving
his motorcycle," Kite said.
John and Morone were test-
ing a new boat motor, which
may have been too large for
their small johnboat when
they tried it out on the lake
near Kite's home.
Investigators suspect water

"I never thought this would
happen in my own backyard,"
Kite said.
John was 23 years old when
he died. Morone was 22 and
had served with the Marines in
Iraq. They had been friends
since elementary school.
As a way of coping with her
son's death, Kite educates oth-
ers on the importance of wear-
ing life jackets all the time
while out on the water.
"People don't realize how
quick something can happen,"
Kite said. "I live and breathe it

proper rod and reel is very
important. I would recom-
mend talking with one of your
loved one's fishing partners to
see exactly what fishing rod,
reel or combo would be well
suited for an exciting
Christmas gift.
The new soft tackle boxes
are excellent Christmas gifts
and come in a wide variety of
sizes and styles. You can also
place a few new lures in the
soft tackle box as an added
gift and surprise.
Fishing and hunting boots,
shoes and sneakers also make
excellent Christmas gifts.

Poinsettias are

plant of season

T he holiday season is
underway, and there
are poinsettias at
doorways and in offices all
over town. This plant seems
to have become the official
plant of the season, no
doubt because of its luscious
red leaves.
And although growers
have hybridized the leaf
color to be pink, apricot,
white, and all shades and
combinations in between,
the red continues to be most
people's favorite.
The care of the poinsettia
is what keeps it looking
lovely throughout the entire
holiday season and long
afterward. It is not unusual
to see plants that are just as
beautiful as the day you
bought them, still looking
that way two or three
months down the road. The
care prior to your buying
them, and then the care
they receive while under
your control, is what deter-
mines this.
I would caution you to
think twice before investing
in those that are windblown
and dry. Many of our larger
stores purchase these plants
in such large quantities that
they run out of indoor room
and therefore place them
outside, in the sun no less.
Day to day, they burn up
out there, and the employ-
ees rarely remember to water
them until they' look so
droopy, you'd think they
had Bassett hound in their
Needless to say, you will
not have much success with
the plant once you get it
home if it has already
undergone such neglect at
the store.
So, while shopping, look
for ones that are taut, their
leaves firm and the color
that you like. Goodness
knows, you can spend as lit-
tle as a dollar on them, and
even the tallest and fullest
can be had for under $30.
There are a few tips I can
give you that will help yours
to stay nice-looking
throughout the holidays.
First, let me talk about
using them as interior deco-
rations. The first step is to
poke holes in that pretty foil
wrapper that they often
come in. This will allow for
drainage, which is critical
each time you water the
plant. Be sure to place the
pot onto a saucer so that
any liquids will not stain
table tops or carpets.
The second step is to
select a spot where the plant
will ideally receive a mini-
mum of six hours of day-
This does not mean it has
to sit and cook in the sun-
shine, but it should not be,
in a dark room either.
Let me give you an exam-
pie: I had a dining room
that always had a few poin-
settias on the table along
with many native greens.
The dining room was rather
dark unless the overhead
chandelier was on.
After one year of dismal
failure, I realized that the
poor poinsettias needed
some more light besides
what they got when we had
So, during the day, 1
removed them from the din-
ing room table and placed
them in a room where they
got plenty of bright day-
light, taking them back to
the table in the late after-
After doing that, I found

Sedaris' 'SantaLand' for adults only

David Sedaris was an aspir-
ing writer with ah infatuation
for daytime soap operas when
he reluctantly took a seasonal
job as a Macy's department
store elf.
The humorous and often-
times humiliating experience is
retold in "SantaLand Diaries,"
a tart, anti-holiday essay first
published by Sedans in 1994.
A stage version of the Sedaris
piece runs tonight and
Saturday at the Atlantic Beach
Experimental Theatre, 716
Ocean Blvd., Atlantic Beach.
"The Santaland Diaries," a
production of Stage Two, stars
lan Mairs in a one-man show.
Tickets are $10. Performances
are at S:15 p.m.
Sedaris, now a best-selling
author, playwright and
National Public Radio com-
mentator, was a newly arrived
New York City resident in 1990
when he was hired as a "full-
time elf" at Macy's Herald

lan Mairs as "Crumpet." a Macy
Square, the largest store in the
"I'm a 33-year-old man
applying for a job as an elf,"
Sedaris recounts in the 41-page
essay, an excerpt of which first
aired on NPR's "Morning

Prio.:,,cunrmaf, d
y's department store elf.
Edition" in 1992.
"I'm certain I failed my drug
test, ... but still they hired me
because I am short, 5 feet, 5
inches. ... It makes one's
mouth hurt to speak with such
forced merriment."

'Apocalypto' dwells on bloodletting

W ith "Apocalypto,"
Mel Gibson spent
an awful lot of
time and money making a
movie about the Mayan peo-
ple that won't fool anyone
who's seen "Gladiator."
Heaven knows there's an
audience for macho epics
with copious amounts of
,s.,o-mo blood-letting, but I
ain't "it'
For all intents and purpos-
es, the primary Mayan of
the story is Jaguar Paw la
charismatic Rudy
Youngbloodi. The movie
focuses on his attempts to
avenge the mercenaries who
destroy his home village,
kill most of its people, and
take the remainder of them
to either be sold off as
slaves, sacrificed to pagan
gods, or used as target prac-
One searches hopefully
throughout the movie's 139
minutes for a reason to care
about anyone in it (besides
the panther-like Jaguar Paw,
at least. The movie begins
with what amounts to a old-
school take on "Fear Factor,"
with a boar graphically
speared and gutted, its
innards given to the hunters
as symbols of manhood.
The movie's lone attempt
at comic relief comes from a
lone oaf who is hesitant to
eat a particular part of the
late boar's anatomy land
with good reason). It turns
out that he's the butt of the,
town's jokes because he has
a nagging mother-in-law :
and he can't impregnate his

wife. I wonder how many
people are attending this
movie in the hope of seeing
a Mayan version of "The
Then the mercenaries
come to -- as NMel Brooks
exquisitely described it in
"Blazing Saddles" -- stam-
pede the women and rape
the cattle. Then some of the
guys are led into town and
get painted blue. and there's
an eclipse of the sun that
fools the locals just like in
that old Mark Twain story,
and then.. No, sorry, I
can't make any sense of it
The movie might have
more impact if writer-direc-
tor Gibson didn't linger on
every little bit of exposition
and violence. Scenes are
dragged out long after we
get their point. At the sacri-
fice, severed heads roll
down the steps of a Mayan
pyramid'with the frequency
and finesse of Fred
Flintstone's bowling bawls.
.Then there's the beaut of a
stunt where a huge trees
falls and nearly kills many

of the prisoners, just so that
Gibson can turn it into a
homage to believe it or not)
Dustin Hoffman in
"Midnight Cowboy."
And yes, the movie is just
as violent as everyone
claims. I hate to come off as
a prude about this subject,
but when a movie lovingly
dwells on its every excuse
for bloodletting, you won-
der how much of it is meant
to make a point about the
uselessness of violence, and
how much of it is just a
movie director getting his
And you'd never guess at
the riches that Mavans con-
tributed to our culture if
you're going from their
depiction in this movie.
Most of the women parade
around like 15th-century
divas, and the men act like
slack-jawed avengers from a
Martin Scorsese movie.
When the sacrificing Mayan
leader cries out to the gods
for deliverance, you feel like
telling him that his group is
getting what it deserves.
For all I know, this movie
might have been well-
researched and achingly
authentic. The trouble with
"Apbcalypto" is that it never
gets you to care about any-
one or anything in.it. After
viewing characters with
names such as'Flint Sky,
Curl Nose, and Smoke Frog,
Poison Pen just has to give
the movie a Bronx cheer.
"Apocalypto" is rated R
for mild sexual situations
and graphic violence.

In the essay, Sedaris, now 49,
recalls how he took the job as a
full-time elf, as opposed to a
"evening and, weekend elf"
because it wouldn't be "quite
as sad as standing on some
street corner dressed as a
french fry."
As a Macy's.elf according to
Sedaris' 5ssay there are 1.- dif-
ferent versions, his uniform
consisted of green velvet knick-
ers, a yellow turtleneck, a forest
green ,velyet smock and a
"perkf tockin' 'cap decorated
with spangles."
Taking photos of children on
Santa's lap, running a cash reg-
ister and keeping people in line
were his primary duties.
The eighth floor of Macy's is
a wonderland of Christmas
lights, fake snow, tree displays
and "really tall candy canes,"
the essay said.
But inside the faux
Christmas scene people were
anything but merry.

Stallone on

deck again

I swallow deeply as I write
that "Rocky Balboa" is the
"Rocky" sequel Sylvester
Stallone should have made
25 years ago. It truly has
everything the original had
- wit, heart, and a genuine-
ly engrossing climactic fight.
' The first "Rocky" was a
fine, touching movie about a
likable Everyman who got a
long-wished-for shot at being
a champ.
Though Stallone had been
doing minor movie roles for
years, "Rocky" opened peo-
ple's eyes to him, and his
own rags-to-riches story par-
alleled that of his creation.
But each successive sequel
seemed a bit more removed
from reality. (The only one I
haven't seen is "Rocky V,"
which even Stallone now dis-
Now, both Stallone and
Balboa have come full circle,
and the new movie is actual-
ly "about" something in
which the audience can have
a stake.
The premise is that Rocky
and heavyweight champ
Mason "The Line" Dixon
(Antonio Tarveri have their
stats fed into a computer and
are put into a simulated
match. The computer's
results show that Rocky
would still come out a win-
Naturally, the real, trash-
talking Tarver doesn't buy it,
, and he reluctantly agrees to
an exhibition match with
Balboa. At this point, you're
probably rolling your eyes
and guessing that Tarve-r-
doesn't have - wart for it -
the eye of the tiger, and
you'd be right.
But for a change, the
movie is "showing" us that
rather than telling us. As
with "Rocky I," the movie
shows that everyone
involved in the match really
needs its old, resigned Rocky,
his resentful son, and his bit-
ter brother-in-law Paulie
iBurt Young, back to being a
likable doofus instead of an
embarrassing caricature).
iThe only emotional tug
that seems forced on us is
the long-past death of
Rocky's beloved wife Adrian.

Matheson: Water poinsettias as needed

:Cont. from B-1
that the poinsettia lasted at
least twice as long as it had
the year before.
Another important tip is
never-to place the plant under
4; vent.You'lJI see it shimmer-
ing each time the heat or air
kicks-on, and this air will dry
it out very quickly. The last
tip has to do with the water-
ing practices one must follow.
Watering is always such a
bummer to try and write
about because there is no
magic formula. I could simply
tell you to. "water when it
needs it." I know the response
you'd utter at home as you
read this if I gave you that
: watering is a tad complicat-
ed if you make it be, but not
if you understand that most
poinsettias, and most nursery
material for that matter, are
grown in a very peaty mLx
which is very lightweight, and
therefore very porous.
It is easy for the nursery
man to keep the plants prop-
erly watered because he does
it with micro-irrigators that
come on every two hours, in
some cases. It is all automatic,
and bam, he produces a gor-
geous plant. Remember,
though, that the mixture is
always very lightweight and
very porous.
For the homeowner, then,
PING,: BUT DAMP. And yes, in

some cases, that means we'll
. have to water every day.
However, the important thing
is to keep the ball of that
mixture damp.
� So here's'wha't I' recom-' '" -
mend: Gather all youi poin-
settias and place them on the
sink counter. Take off their
foil wrappers. Put the stopper
in the sink, and start filling
the sink with lukewarm
water. Place the poinsettias
into the sink, do not let the
leaves get water on them, and
let the water fill each pot.
Turn it off, and allow the
plants to sit in the sink for
about a half an hour, absorb-
ing the water into this light-
weight mLxtuoe. Empty the
sink of water, leave the plants
there to drain, replace their
wrappers, and place them
wherever you had them
throughout the house. I think
that if you do this every few
days, you should be fine.
If you are using poinsettias
as temporary decorations out-
doors, you'll need to monitor
their soil even more.
You may need to water
them every day, especially if
they receive the afternoon sun
and/or if it is windy. If the

"There was a line for Santa

Artistic tribute to Fowler planned for riverwalk

Unending existence and
lasting fame are words
that describe immortali-
ty in the dictionary.
Artists in past centuries such
as Michelangelo and Raphael
have received lasting fame
through their works, and
many artists have done so in
the history of art.
A rare opportunity is being
offered, on a much smaller
scale, to create a lasting
memorial to a prominent lady
who lived in our time.
The artistic or artists who cre-
ate this work of art will receive
priceless recognition as well as
monetary reward.
S The Cultural Council of
Greater Jacksonville
announced that the City of
Jacksonville, Art in Public
Places Program, is seeking an
artist or an artisif team to
design, create and install an
original, site-specific artwork
to memorialize the life and
work of Representative Tillie
Kidd Fowler.
. The artists) selected must
interpret Fowler's integrity
and dedication in a significant .
work of contemporary public
art :
The work will be installed
outdoors in a circular plaza on
the city's northbank river walk.
