Block of South Penman Road closes

Anyone headed to Wingate Park, the
Jacksonville Beach Golf Course or the city's
police department offices will have to take
a detour starting Monday.
The portion of South Penman Road
between Beach Boulevard and Shetter
Avenue will be closed beginning Monday
for nine months.
The affected stretch of South. Penman
Road is being rebuilt to align the roadway
with the existing traffic signal intersection
on Beach Boulevard.
The Penman alignment project will
include demolition of all existing roadway
and utilities, reconstruction, new align-
ment, curbing, new sidewalks and changes

in the area's drainage and water systems.
As part of the project, new landscaping is
planned, along with a parking area for Lee
Kirkland Cemetery, located on the western
boundary of the realigned roadway, and a
wall on the east side of the predominately
African-American cemetery.
Junior Lilly, construction project manag-
er for the city of Jacksonville Beach, said
that beginning Monday drivers who use
South Penman Road will have to detour via
15th Street South to Shetter Avenue or via
12th Street to Shetter Avenue to get around
the road closure.
Work is scheduled for completion in
October, Lilly said.

"Every time there's a new player, I try to

years old, always fun, always upbeat."
Clarke and Young rode in cart No. 17 to
commemorate Young's birth year. There is
no cart numbered 90. *
Young and Brown have been playing
golf together for 40 years. Brown was a
member of Jacksonville Beach GC's first
ladies golf group, when it had 50 mem-
bers and the course had but nine holes.
"But out of that 50, I'm the only one
that's left that's still playing," Brown said
with a chuckle.

Ideas sought
for Penman
beauty, speed
Finding ways to make
Penman Road less "ugly" and
operate more efficiently with-
out widening are the goals for
an upcoming 3-day workshop
in Jacksonville Beach.
The city wants all interested j
citizens to attend the program,
which will begin with a presen-
tation on Jan. 29 from 6:30
p.m. to 9 p.m. Open House
workshops will be held Jan. 30
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and
final presentations will be
inade Jan. 31 at 6:30 p.m. All of
the meetings will be held at
Jacksonville Beach City Hall in
council chambers.
The city is looking for ideas
on developing a design for the
roadway from Beach Boulevard
to Seagate Avenue.
"The design will focus on
improving the aesthetic condi-
tion and pedestrian friendli-
ness of the roadway," Planning
Director Steve Lindorff said,
adding that plans are to make
the road "not look so ugly" and
"gather community input to
come to a common vision of
what Penman Road could be
like in the future.
Other elements of the design
will include a focus on car and
bike needs, as well as safety in
the corridor.
Final plans will be presented
to the county for assistance in
implementing as the county
owns the roadway.

NB talks eco Mon.
The city of Neptune Beach
will once again discuss an ordi-
nance regarding the protection
of environmentally sensitive
lands Monday at 6 p.m.
Councilor John Weldon
recently proposed an ordi-
nance, which is still in draft
form, that would place stricter
limitations on dock construc-
tion and any other waterway
construction in order to protect
and conserve environmentally
sensitive lands.

Used in Atlantic Beach for the
opening of its municipal

ago, the above logo is also
apt now for Jacksonville
Beach, which has plans for a
similar skateboarding facility.

Jax Beach planners stoked

about skateboard park site

It's certain that a skateboard park is in the
plans for the final phase of South Beach Park in
Jacksonville Beach.
City officials are less certain about how to pro-
tect the city against liability when the park
opens. An opening date has not been set yet as
city council approval is still required.
"The skate ramp will be fenced to prohibit any
unauthorized use at night," Grounds and
Maintenance Director Gary Meadors said
Tuesday. "We have not been the first ones out
of the box as far as skate parks go. We've taken
this slow for that reason."
Meadors said the park will operate using simi-
lar protocol as the Oceanside Rotary Skate Park
in Atlantic Beach which requires skaters under
the age of 18 to have parents sign a waiver.
"A concessionaire is going to be there to veri-
fy permission from the parents saying that they
have the equipment like elbow pads, knee pads
and helmet and that they are supposed to be
there," he said. "I want somebody checking.
Signs will be posted for those over 18 that say
you are [skating] at your own risk."
City officials have not decided whether they
plan to charge admission for use of the skate
"I don't think we will charge but that is still a
question we haven't answered, yet," Meadors
1 Planning Director Steve Lindorff said a num-
ber of national consultants have responded to
the city's requests for proposals for the skate
park construction
"They are experts in this kind of thing," he
said. "I'm sure one of the things that we will be
dealing with them on is the control and securi-
ty aspects of the park."
The Community Redevelopment Agency
Tuesday appropriated $715,000 including a
$200,000 matching state grant to design and
build the enclosed skateboard park, three vol-
leyball courts, picnic shelters and new restroom
Meadors said there are no plans to install

Jax Beach Park Security Plans

*Jogging paths will be widened to
accommodate police vehicles.

*At least one security camera will be
installed to monitor the property.

'South Beach Park will continue to
operate on the same schedule as
the rest of the city's parks and close
at dusk.

additional lighting for the skateboard park or
the multipurpose field because of the close prox-
imity to residential neighborhoods.
"The only lighting we have are some street
lights that go around the trail," he said.
Agency chairman Ray Fisher said he was con-
cerned that the picnic shelters would draw
unwanted attention after hours without light-
"For night time activity [the area] would be a
prime target for party time," he said.
Approximately 25 to 30 new parking spaces
will be added along the eastern wall of the city's
water plant wall to accommodate park patrons
as well as people utilizing the planned commu-
nity recreation center.
"We want to try and get as close to 200 spaces
as we can," Meadors said. "considering that the
community recreation center for a wedding
could be in that neighborhood."
Meadors, who is serving as the project manag-
er for the park construction, said the existing
retention pond could be enlarged or a bulkhead
installed to increase the capacity.
"At some point we might be bringing in
reclaimed water to irrigate the park," he said.
Landscaping, irrigation, drinking fountains
and grassing of the multipurpose field will also
be included in the final improvement phase.

went into place Nov. 5, 2004.
The request for summary
judgment "is a clever strategy by
the developers that the attor-
neys 'for Jax Beach are not
opposing," Beaches Watch pres-
ident Sandy Golding said
Tuesday before the City
She said it was intended that
vested rights. would be deter-
mined by a court through a trial
in which all the facts would be
placed before the judge for a full
and fair determination.
However, in all the vested
rights cases to date, the develop-
ers have shortcut the process by
requesting a summary judg-
ment, she said
A request for summary judg-
ment was filed by Southern
Waterview Development, Inc.
seeking the right to build a 10-
story luxury condominium
called The Beach House on the
oceanfront in Jacksonville
Beach. No decision has been

made to date.
The city's attorney Brenna
Durden said at the hearing that
when the owners, applied for
development plan permit
approval, they had the proper
authorizations attached to the
application to go forward.
Golding, also chastised the
city's legal staff for not filing a
response in the case, although
Mayor Fland Sharp directed
attorney Durden in a Dec. 24
letter "to oppose this motion
due to the outstanding judicable
questions in the case"
Sharp also noted in the letter
to Durden that the City Council
had not approved any kind of
settlement offer with SWD.
. "As required by the Charter
amendment, vested rights must
be determined by a court of
competent jurisdiction.
Therefore, neither the City
Council tor the City's attorneys
have authority to accept settle-
ment offers in any of the vested
rights cases," Golding said at
Tuesday's council meeting.
Beaches Watch member
Wendell Finner, an attorney,
told the judge at the summary
iudgpment hearing, that his

group should have the right to
"assist the court" in determin-
ing the outcome of the vested
rights case.
Firmer filed a motion for con-
tinuance to provide more time
for Beaches Watch to collect
data and other materials. He
said the plaintiff is not entitled
to the summary relief since it is
not clear whether the developer
would have been entitled to a
building permit..
Circuit Court Judge Jean
Johnson has not yet ruled on
the summary judgment but
denied the request for continu-
ance. Johnson has also not
advised whether Beaches Watch
will be permitted to intervene in
the case.
Durden noted the charter
amendment does not require
the issuance of a building per-
mit to determine vested rights.
'The height limits are not
intended to restrict or otherwise
adversely affect a property
owner's vested rights under con-
stitutional, statutory or com-
mon law'," Durden said quoting
the charter amendment.

The Leader's Opinion

Trees for free are

bargain for everyone
It's everybody's favorite price to pay.
On Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon anyone who is
interested may stop by the SeaWalk Pavilion and get a
tree for free.
It's a bargain by any standard and goes a long way
toward helping the city of Jacksonville Beach retain its
designation as Tree City USA. The event is to celebrate
Arbor Day, which arrives earlier in Florida than it does
for the Yankees.
Crape myrtles and laurel oaks will be available to
families on a first come, first serve basis. Proof of resi-
dency is not required.
Both trees were selected as they are able to withstand
the Beach's elements and are fairly drought-tolerant
once established.
Once you have the tree home, if you find you don't
like it for some reason, you can dig it up and give it to
a friend. In Jacksonville Beach a tree removal permit is
only needed if a tree is 6 inches in diameter or larger.
Plant a tree and help beautify the area. You have
nothing to lose but a little time and trouble picking up
the tree and planting it at home.


Civil war prison camp horrors not
unique to just the south

To the editor:
I enjoyed the article by Mr.:
[John] Woodhouse on the
Andersonville Prison
Compound. But, I think some
mention of prison camps in
the north should be listed.
According to the U.S.
record and pension office
211, 411 Union soldiers were
captured by the confederacy.
Of this total 16, 668 were
paroled on the field and 30,
218 died while in prison.
Confederate. soldiers cap-
tured by the union numbered
462, 634. Of this total 247,
769 were paroled on the field
and 25, 976 died in prison.
The mortality rate was a little
over 12 percent in union pris-
ons and 15.5 percent in con-
federate prisons.
The Andersonville Prison is
synonymous in print and on
the screen with all. that was
"eprehensible in' war-time
'.prisons. Oft times it .is the
first and only civil war prison
mentioned. While no one
should make' light of the
abominable conditions at
Andersonville, at, the same
time one cannot ignore the

harshness of life in northern
camps at Elmira, N.Y.,
Johnson's Island in Lake Erie
or Camp Douglas in Chicago.
There has been little histori-
cal objectivity shown in most
writing on civil war prisons.
Andersonville is even
enlarged upon with some
authors making it exist for
the whole war (excluding Mr.
Woodhouse), whereas it really
was in operation from Feb.
1864 to the end of the war in
To the union goes the
record of the highest mortali-
ty rate in a month of any
prison-of-war compound -
387 men out of 3,884
detained at Camp Douglas,
Chicago in Feb. 1863.
It is interesting to note (as
Mr. Woodhouse stated) that at
times more than 30,000 pris-
oners designed for 10,000 )
were held at Ander~sorn\ille.
making it the '"fifth largest
city in the confederacy."
This war was truly "HELL."

I've always counted on the
newspaper to deliver the news

To the editor:
I enjoyed your recent article
about newspaper readers. My
father worked for the
Associated Press most of his
life. His office was always at
some newspaper. He worked
in D.C., the Miami Herald,
The Dallas Morning News and
many others.
He retired while working at
the Times-Union. Way back
then he used to bring home
newspapers' from 'all around
the country, which was excit-

ing to us.
Today when I travel I
always pick up the town's
local newspaper, even in very
small towns. I have some
friends who say 'we get all our
news on TV.'
Well, I watch TV news too
but the newspaper tells it all
and I'm glad I was born into a
newspaper family.

But my writing has been diffi-

abuse them SHOULD be pun-

In the event of multiple noise complaints

AB police chief seeks authority to close business for the evening

Police want the authority to
close the Fly's Tie Irish Pub in
Atlantic Beach early when cops
receive more than one noise
complaint in an evening.
Police Chief David
Thompson said that the pub
has had continuing complaints
about the level of noise. The
pub, located at 177 E. Sailfish
Dr., is surrounded by residential
housing and citizens have com-
plained about the loud music,
and especially the bass that
emanates from the pub on a
nightly basis.
Thompson spoke with owner
Ralph Tiernan in February
about the problem, he said.
While the noise levels tem-
porarily decreased, the overall
problem was not solved,
Thompson said, and the police
department is still receiving
However, Tiernan said he has
taken several measures to
reduce the noise levels and is

more than willing to work with
the city to reach a solution.
"I'd love to work it out with
the city and I'd love to be a
good neighbor," he said.
Tiernan has been. operating
the business for 13 years, long
before the area was developed
with as much residential hous-
ing, he said.
He received his first and only
citation, which the magistrate
dismissed, Tiernan said, approx-
imately a year ago, and has
since purchased a decibel read-
er, spoken to all of his bands
regarding the decibel levels and
even keeps a spreadsheet track-
ing each noise complaint and
what the decibel level was at
the time of the complaint.
He also installed sound dif-
fusers to the windows and back
door and added a floating stage,
which absorbs more sound, and
fired a band for not maintain-
ing a lower decible level.
Thompson is currently seek-
ing legal advice from city attor-
ney Alan Jenson to learn.

whether or not police officers
have the authority to shut the
pub, down after its second
offense in. one evening,
although Tieman added that he
.has voluntarily closed the place

down when the noise has
reached unacceptable levels, he
said. ,
Thompson said he is taking
residents' concerns seriously
because the problem has not

been solved, he said.
He explained that the owner
could be charged for a first
offense of the sound ordinance,
which is a criminal charge and
requires the accused to appear
in county court before a judge.
If it is legal, Thompson said he
plans on shutting the business
down and kicking everyone out
if a second offense occurs with-
in the same night.
Thompson and other staff
reviewed approximately 20,000
department records to learn
how severe the problem was, he
said in a recent e-mail.
"At the end of December, we
determined that, in fact, officers
had.responded to the Fly's Tie
repeatedly over the past year. It
was also apparent that despite
past efforts to work with the
management at Fly's Tie to
eliminate the problem, the
problem was continuing,"
Thompson said in an e-mail.
The solution is as simple as
turning the volume down,
according to Thompson.

The Atlantic Beach noise
ordinance states that it is
unlawful for any noise that
"annoys, disturbs, injures or
endangers...reasonable per-
sons...within the city limits,"
according to Thompson's e-
Tiernan said if the city could
establish an actual decibel level,
it would be easier for him to
comply, he said.
Thompson said citizens
should call police when there is
a violation of the sound ordi-
nance because the prosecution
will have to show that someone
was victimized.
Thompson is preparing a let-
ter to the Fly's Tie management
to let them know what the con-
sequences will be if the problem
continues, he said in an e-mail.

Dr. R.G. Packo, DC

27-year-old takes over First Baptist pulpit


First Baptist Church of
Jacksonville Beach will have a
special installation service at
10:30 a.m. on Sunday to recog-
nize Benjamin W. Wallis as
the church's new Senior Pastor.
As he begins to take on the
responsibilities of his new
position, Wallis reflected on
the faith-filled journey that
led him to this church.
A little over two years ago,
"we had never heard of
Jacksonville Beach. God called
us here," said Wallis.
Wallis graduated from
Shorter College in 2001, He
and his wife, Julie, were mar-
ried shortly thereafter..
While in college, Wallis rec-
ognized his call to full-time
Christian ministry. In 2004, he
graduated from Southern
Baptist Theological Seminary
with a Masters of Divinity
After Wallis' graduation,
the previous Senior Pastor of
First Baptist Church of
Jacksonville Beach, Michael
Hasha, contacted him about
the position of Associate Pastor
of Students at the church.
"I don't know how they got
my resume," said Wallis.
This was not something I
pursued, God brought us here
for my first position in the
ministry, he said.
Wallis started serving as
Associate Pastor in 2005. After
Hasha resigned in October of
that year, Wallis began preach-
ing at the church's Sunday
During the search for an
interim pastor, Wallis contin-
ued to preach and handle his
other duties. This left him
felling "stretched between
preaching and the youth min-
istry," he said.

Once Dr. Clarence Hackett
became the Interim Pastor in
the spring of 2006, Wallis
again focused on the Student
The Search Committee,
however, asked him to submit
his resume for consideration
for the position of Senior
Wallis complied but told the
Committee that he "was not
seeking a calling.:
"I'm 27 years old with no
senior pastoral experience," he
During that time Wallis and
his wife prayed about the need
for a senior pastor at the
church. They were drawn to
read Chapter 19 in 1st Kings in
the Bible, he said.
The chapter continues the
narrative about Elijah who is
told by God to wait in a cave
for God to come, said Wallis.
Elijah looks for God in a fire
outside the cave, in the wind,
and in an earthquake but God
is not there. God comes to
Elijah in "a gentle whisper."
It is us alone with God and
listening that. brings us
"inescapeable peace," said
While considering the possi-.
bility of being called, Wallis
said he prayed for the ability
"to be obedient."
Through what Wallis
describes as the "mystical
nature of God" and against
logic, he was asked by the
church to become the Senior
Listening to God with faith
and a recognition of "utter
dependence on God," Wallis
accepted the position. The
decision has brought him 'a
sense of "peace and comfort.
...... If God called me, he'll
equip me," he said.
Wallis said he looks forward
to leading a church that, he
said is extremely hospitable. It

has been instrumental in the
foundation of several other
churches at the Beach. It also
persevered through a rebuild-
ing effort following a fire in
the 90's.
First Baptist Church of
Jacksonville Beach is currently
in the second phase of a build-
ing campaign called "Faith for
the Future." The goal is to

build a new education building
with additional parking.
The campaign has "more of
a stewardship emphasis
....God is leading us through a
journey that is changing us.
personally through stepping
out on faith," said Wallis.

Ih One goal enough for Nease win



from the

sports page


Say it ain't Sosa. The Texas
Rangers announced they
have signed former Cubs
and Orioles slugger Sammy
Sosa to a minor league con-
tract. The outfielder hasn't
played since 2005 when he
batted .221 with 14 homers
and 45 RBI in 102 games. A
cloud of suspicion still
remains over Sosa after his
performance in front of a
congressional committee
looking into steroid use. Sosa
let an interpreter do most of
his talking when the ballplay-
er claimed he wasn't fluent in
English despite years of con-
ducting interviews in the lan-

Let's sort this out. Mike
Shula wasn't good enough
to coach Alabama so they
fired him. Nick Saban was-
n't having much success
with the Miami Dolphins so
he took the Alabama job.
Now the Dolphins have
interviewed Shula for their
vacancy. Can't cut it in the
NFL, go back to college.
College coaching not Work-
ing out, try the NFL.
'-Some are saying-Sunday's,
AFC Championship game
between the Colts and
Patriots is the real Super
Bowl. Haven't we learned
anything? These are the same
folks who claimed last
November's matchup
between Michigan and Ohio
State was the real national
championship game. Yeah,
how'd that work out? The
Wolverines and Buckeyes
were stomped in their respec-
tive bowl games and by now
we all knoW the Florida
Gators won the BCS title.

So David Beckham is
going to make pro soccer a
major sport in America,
huh? Something tells me
that if Pele, Giorgio
Chinaglia and Franz
Beckenbauer couldn't do it,
Becks won't either.

Disappointing end to the
Fletcher High girls soccer sea-
son. The team suffered back-
to-back losses against
Mandarin, first in the
Gateway Conference title
game and then the first
round of the district playoffs.
The good news for coach
Megan Pardue is that the
Senators are stocked with
freshmen, sophomores and
juniors and should be a
major force next year.

Seems Atlanta Falcons QB
Michael Vick raised some
suspicion at Miami Interna-
tional Airport this week.
Vick reluctantly surrendered
a water bottle to authorities
that contained a residue
"closely associated with
marijuana," police said Wed-
nesday. No charges have
been filed but the bottle has
been sent to a lab for testing.

Phil Mickelson claims he
shed 20 to 25 pounds of fat
and added 15 pounds of mus-
cle in his three-month offsea-
son. If Lefty were a baseball
or football player, he'd imme-
Sdiately fall under suspicion of
having used steroids. But
golfers get a pass. Perhaps it's
because most don't view
them as athletes and there's
no testing on the PGA Tour

Best bets for the weekend:
The AFC and NFC Champ-
ionship games. A great week-
end for NFL fans and there
are compelling storylines for
all four of the participating

The Panthers tallied the
game's only goal on one of
their six second-half corners.
Senior defender Ryan
Corning deposited the game-
winner with 11:12 left to play
off a corner kick by lunior
Kyle Johnson.
The goal was the only blem-
ish for Fletcher keeper Taylor
Wyman (1.077 goals against
average), who recorded 10
saves in the loss.
."We have a few set pieces-
we do on corners, so I knew
one of those eventually would
get in," added Kiisch, now in
his first year at Nease after
coaching at Deltona and Lake
Mary Prep the past six years.

ment was to send up more

Kattreh pressured the box, and
then dished off to teammates
in front of the goalmouth.
"But we didn't get the touch
on the other end," said
Levine, whose team had only
one other loss in the
Jacksonville area, 2-0 to
Wolfson Nov. 16.
"The most impressive thing
about Tony is how unselfish
he is. He takes what the game
gives him. And as bad as we

played, we still managed to
keep it close."
Kirsch, who played college
soccer at Stetson University
and semi-pro soccer in
Colorado, is pleased with the
progress of his first-year team.
Nease went 27-3-3 and was,
the 2A state runner-up as
recently as five years ago. The

Nease's Wilson opts

for Florida over USC


Nease High offensive line-
man James Wilson has with-
drawn his verbal commitment
to the University of Southern
California and will attend
Florida beginning next fall.
' Wilson, rated as the No. 1
offensive guard in the coun-
try by several scouting servic-
es, has remained friendly with
Gators quarterback Tim
Tebow, who helped guide
Nease to the 2005 Class 4A
state football championship.
Panthers head coach Craig
Howard said Thursday Wilson
"did some soul searching"
after returning from the U.S.
Army All-American Bowl ear-
lier this month.
"He made a list of the pros
and cons and eventually he
decided his friendships with
Tim Tebow and Bo Howard
and some others at Florida
were important factors in his

college decision," the coach
"I've always said James is
the Tim Tebow of offensive
linemen and his passion for
the game and work ethic will
really shine through."
The 6'5", 305-pound
Wilson helped Nease win the
4A title in 2005 and make a
return to the state champi-
onship game last season.
Asked if Wilson's decision
to become a Gator seems
final, the Panthers coach
believes it is.
"How'd he put it? He said
'I'm on lockdown' as far
recruiting goes," Howard
explained. "Of course I'm
always happy when any of
our kids go on to college and
even happier when they
receive football scholarships. I
don't think James could have
gone wrong at either school
but it'll be nice to have him
at Florida and blocking for
Tebow again."

Nease High's Ryan Corning (12) out-leaps Fletcher defender Sean Tracy to score the only goal in the Panthers' 1-0 victory
Tuesday at Jack Taylor Stadium. Corning scored off a corner kick in the second half.

Local fans can root for Grossman and Gaffney


T-lour teams will compete
SSunday for the honor of
playing in the NFL cham-
pionship game. Sadly for local
fans, the Jacksonville Jaguars
will not be amongst them.
This is no scoop. The
Jaguars have been out of the
running since the tail end of
the regular season. But it still
If you watched the games
last weekend, when New
England upset the San Diego
Chargers if that can be con-
sidered an upset and the
Chicago Bears squeezed past
Seattle by the skin of their

in overtime, maybe you won-
dered why the Jaguars could-
n't be there.
In spirit, maybe they were.
In the Bears-Seahawks game,
there might have been a little
nostalgia. Viewers saw so
many passes dropped and
deflected, they might have
thought they were watching
Jacksonville play.
: For Florida Gators fans who
can remember back before
Tim Tebow, there was one-
time favorite quarterback Rex
Grossman struggling to atone

past year.

already made a name for him-
self in the playoffs by hauling
in three important Brady
heaves in Sunday's victory
over the Chargers. It was a
good win for the New

a 14-3 deficit.
Maybe the Jaguars won't be

soccer squad

The Armed Forces Tourna-
ment, which got underway
Wednesday at Patton Park and
runs until January 22, features
the best soccer players the Air
Force, Army, Marine Corps
and Navy have to offer.
Eighteen players will be cho-
sen from the tournament for
the Armed Forces Team, which
will consist of several members
from each of the four branches
of the military that will play
in an intercontinental soccer
championship next month in
From there, two teams will
be chosen to go to the World
Games in October in India.
The on-going Patton Park
tournament is a double round-
robin, meaning each team
plays every other squad twice,
a total of six games for each of
the armed forces teams.
Three points are awarded for
a win, one for a tie, none for a
loss. The champion will be the
team with the most points.
There are six or seven tiebreak-
ers, primary of which is head-
to-head record.
The All-Navy team has been
training since Dec. 27 at
Mayport Naval Station. The
All-Army team trains at Ft.
Eustis, Va.; All-Air Force at
MacDill Air Force Base in
:Tampa arid All-Marine Corps
-at MCRD in San Diego.
A local resident playing for
the Army team is National
Guard Sgt. Roye Locklear, who
lives in Julington Creek.
Locklear played professionally
with the Jacksonville Cycles
from 1996 to 1999. He said "a
pretty devastating" knee
injury during the 1999 season
ended his pro career.
"Here I play sweeper, a little
bit of midfielder. [With] the
Cyclones, I played the same
positions," said the North
Carolina native, who grew up
in Germany, where his father
was in the military.
Locklear has lived in
Jacksonville since 1994.

Arbor Day is

Saturday in Fla.
aturday is Florida's
Arbor Day, and in
honor of the day, crape
myrtle and laurel oak trees
will be given away from 8
a.m. to noon at the SeaWalk
Pavilion in Jacksonville
This giveaway marks not
only Arbor Day which is
held earlier in Florida than
elsewhere because of our cli-
mate but also a season in
which special talks and
other events relating to hor-
ticulture will be held.
The programs will be at
libraries, retail nurseries,
churches or other public
areas where guests can
obtain literature and hear
Florida's Arbor Day also
indicates it is the time to
plant or transplant decidu-
ous trees, shrubs and hardy
But a word of caution
about planting trees or any-
thing else to fill the blank
spaces in your yard: don't
Consider the size of the
plant when it reaches matu-
rity and don't be tempted to
do what.I did many years
ago: plant too much. It may
be tempting, but believe me,
the maintenance is a killer.

One of my readers
brought to my attention
that in December I talked
about "putting poinsettias
in the garage" if we are tired
of looking at them and if
they are starting to fizzle
away, basically waiting to be
planted into the ground.
He asked if they should be
watered during this time,
and the short answer is yes.
But give it very little water
and no strong sunlight so
that it will slow in growth
until the danger of frost is
passed and it can be plant-
This should happen in
late March or early April.
Snip the plant so that the
branches will be about 8
inches from the ground, and
plant the poinsettia where it
will receive protected south-
ern or southwestern expo-
sure and no direct light
from the house or street
lights in the evening.
Putting the plant in the
garage will protect it from
any frosts, although Beaches
residents, who benefit from
warmer temperatures, may
not need to take this precau-
tion, particularly this winter,
which until earlier this week,
has been rather warm.'
If your poinsettia looks
beautiful and you decided to
keep it indoors but intend
to plant it into the ground,
March is the recommended
time. I would still prune it
back a little bit before plant-
ing. This will force root as
well as top growth, also
enabling you to do some
.reshaping if necessary.

an entirely different ques-

the day my editor told me

had just heard a commercial

Proctor exhibit at PV Center one for all ages

The Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra opened an

from objects the rest of us

It is an exhibit for all ages to
enjoy. It is large scale, original,
whimsical, colorful and a cred-
it to the artist who created
something out of nothing.
Large-scale collages include
combinations of paint, words,
beer can labels, Maxwell
House coffee can labels, door
knobs, paint brushes, glitter,
flowers, buckets and much
more all glued or attached to
oblong or square panels which
are painted in brilliant colors.
These materials are put
together in forms of figures

Capt. Jack Swallows (Darrell Hammond) is surrounded by a bevy of beauties in the comedy spoof "Epic Movie." The film is the lat-
est parody by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer of "Scary Movie" fame. The PG-13 film opens next week.

'Rocky Balboa' still packs plenty of punch

This reviewer, a fan of
entertaining rather than
"message" flicks, expected lit-
tle as he walked through the
theater doors to see "Rocky
To my delight and sur-
prise, along with the audi-
ence, "Rocky Balboa" was
destined to become a pleas-
ant memoryff you're mature
ahemm!) enough, you might
remember the first "Rocky," a
'77 Oscar winner. Love, .
hatred, courage, friendship -
all was thoroughly mixdd in
the original.
The sequels well, if you
were a fight fan, you enjoyed
them. Now, though, this last
"Rocky" will be.studied in
film labs worldwide. Though
far from perfect, it carries

extreme emotional power,
and in a way, that'll make
you smile!
Sylvester Stallone, star of
all the "Rocky's" plus director
and screenwriter of the lat-
est, now fits the image of an
aging gladiator. Though in
real life 60 years young,
Stallone boasted bulging
muscles and delivered what
just might be his finest per-
formahce. :-; '
Though seldom singled but
for acting ability, in "Rocky
Balboa," he shows the years
have been kind. Still literally
a fighter, in this case, he's
one seeking purpose as the
decades pass.
This flick isn't a "fight"
movie; Stallone uses most of
it for character development.
The motivations are actually
plausible, this alone making
the final "Rocky" worth-

The latest story opens in
Rocky's old South
Philadelphia neighborhood,
an endless grid of aging row
homes that today, in most
areas, are sold for double
their real value just by
renaming them townhouses.
His beloved wife gone,
Stallone now runs Adrian's,
ieii restaurant He poses, for.
pjctLi rwithW.uests, a t ting-
ing reminder'of famous
times past.
As in Bruce Springsteen's
song, "Glory Days," he's
stuck in a fading time warp.,
Events, however, unbe-
knownst to him are swirling.
The wind takes the shape
of a fantasy computer
match-up with the reigning
world champion, Mason
"The Line" Dixon (light
heavyweight champion

Antonio Tarver).
The computer predicts
Tarver would lose against
"Rocky" in his prime. An
unpopular champion,
Tarver's managers decide a
charity exhibition of the two
gladiators battling for
supremacy may change his
image. N
No one expects "Rocky" to
win, and many are derisive
abVotit the madfth.' Bu RoP'
stffl'fels he has' bne' fight'"
left, a belief bolstered by
Geraldine Hughes ("St.
Patrick's Day," "Duplex").
More detail would just
spoil the story of this 102-
minute, PG-13 "must see." As
usual, visit the flick's website
and view the trailer at .

Dating: Next session Feb. 6 at Casa Monica Hotel

Cont. from B-1
If you fancy an interesting
way to meet some new people,
here are a few hints I found
particularly helpful.
DO have an open mind.
Most participants are just as
nervous as you are. Not every
participant will be your
Prince/Princess Charming apd
it is just as unlikely that you
will be theirs. Just go with it
and have fun. That's what it's
all about.
DON'T fidget. Meeting a
group-of complete strangers is
already a monumentally nerve
wracking experience. The fact
that you have six minutes in
which to decide if you'd like to

share more time with this per-
son is complicated enough
without you drumming "The
Lone Ranger" theme song on
the table.
DO have an idea about what
you plan to talk about in the
limited conversation time.
Trying to be spontaneous and
clever on such a strict deadline
is never a smart practice. It's
also never a good idea to script
the conversation. Just try and
find a happy medium. If all
else fails, maybe he/she really
enjoys "The Lone Ranger"
theme song.
DON'T have high expecta-
tions. Unlike the bar scene or
any other social outlet, the

amount of available time to
chat is cut dramatically short
by the sands of the hourglass.
But at a bar, a ringing bell only
signifies a good tipper rather
than relief from a crashing
DO bring a friend. While my
participation was more work
assignment than social experi-
ment, I was eternally grateful
for the opportunity to
exchange meaningful eye rolls
and throat slitting motions
with my coworker. The ability
to share in all aspects of the
experience whether you have
butterflies or bombshells sig-
nificantly ups the fun-factor.
DON'T laugh. No matter

what. It took a lot for these
people to dig deep and make
the conscious .choice to meet
in a public forum and get
together for a grown up game
of "Seven Minutes inHeaven"
- without the blind groping in
a dark closet but just as awk-
DO give it a chance. You
may not meet the love of your
life but chances are you could
make a new friend or at least
have lots of great material.
Speed Dating will be held for
professional singles ages 27-45
at 7 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Casa
Monica Hotel in St. Augustine.

If I look high to the tops of

catch glimpses of large pileat-

lucky in warmer months,

I also always enjoy watch-
ing the turtles in my back-
yard retention pond. For
years these turtles have been
crawling from the pond to
recreational property border-
ing a golf course to lay their
eggs. In this for-now-protect-
ed plot of palmetto scrub and
wax myrtle trees, pond tur-
tles and gopher tortoises can
still lay their eggs where they
will be undisturbed by
humans. The eggs are not
completely safe here, of
course. In these same woods
and shrubs, raccoons, bob-

cats, otters and opossums
make their dens. At least tur-
tle eggs in the woods have
more chance of surviving
than those laid on concrete,
or in pesticideridden St.

course turf, their only other

many large animals can swim
to Fort Clinch State Park,
then pass along the Egans

can hopefully continue to get
a drink of fresh water and a
dry undisturbed place to rest
on their travels.
If they still need to move
south their next stop is the
perilous journey across to
the still-native vegetation
bordering the Amelia Island
city golf course. From here

course at night, south to

Like the buntings, many
other species need the last
remaining patches of natural
vegetation for sustenance,

Seaside getaway bedroom provides stress relief

There's nothing like a vaca-
tion to soothe your nerves
and make you feel refreshed -
especially when that vacation
is to a seaside locale.
Like the tide itself, the
calming ocean blues, waves
lapping on the shore, and the
breezy, waving palm trees all
have an irresistible, relaxing
But when schedules are
tight and budget non-existent
for jetting off to an exotic
locale, a bedroom makeover
could be the answer to the
need for wanderlust or relax-
ation or both.
Calm and collected
Creating a serene seaside
retreat starts with calming
color. A soothing color in
darker tones of pastels, such
as a steely blue, makes for
instant relaxation.
Shades should reflect the
natural elements found at the
seaside that range from pale,
mossy greens to beiges resem-
bling the color of sea oats and
sand. Toned down whites are
also good choices for trim and
ceiling colors as this kind of
color palette won't create a
stark contrast of bright white
against the wall color.
Finish line
The finishes chosen for a
seaside bedroom should be
satin and dark rather than
bright and shiny. A relaxing
retreat features hard furnish-
ings in dark, exotic wood
tones, such as mahogany,
deep espresso, and ebony.
Paired with pale-colored bed
linens, the dark wood colors
look .especially rich and exotic
and evoke the feelings of a
Balinese retreat or Raffles
Hotel in Singapore.
The dark woods are also
more noticeable against the
soft tones of the colors on the
wall with each complement-
ing the other. Dark wood
frames are also a handsome
choice for art work.
Framed maps of the locale
or of local flora and fauna


make nice touches for art-
work. If antique maps or art-
work are hard to find, substi-
tute newer versions and wipe

stain to create an aged look.
Escape Elements
Creating a complete seaside
or vacation-feel bedroom
relies on adding elements that
round out the seaside appeal
and the feeling of escape.
Beautiful, art-quality seashells
make wonderful sea-inspired
accessories for a table top or
as art for the walls.
Sea coral is another hot
trend and richly evocative ele-
ment that makes a good
choice for a pattern, whether
on the walls, on bed linens, or
in fabric for curtains.
Coordinated accessories
work best when chosen at
once, so try to group your
accessories to be sure they fit
within your seaside theme.
Natural textures are also key
choices for relaxation, yet
they maintain the eye's inter-
est. The natural texture of a
sisal rug is appealing both to
the eye and to the foot with
its nubby feel.
Select upholstery, throws,
and pillows in similar colors
but with different textures.
The textures have a layer of
tactile richness and the similar
color palate keeps the calm
feeling going.

oceanside retreat is what you

Most hotels feature websites
with views of their accommo-
dations, allowing you to peer
in so you can recreate the
look for your own home.
So go ahead and peek and
then make that look your own
in your bedroom.
Then, a vacation can be just

down the hall anytime you
want tb go.
