Costs soar



Road work

If DOT won't
ante up, then
'Mercedes plan'
may become
'Chevrolet plan'
The Mayport Road projects
which include resurfacing and
landscaping may be delayed or
scaled down due to an increase
in the estimated costs, according
to City of Jacksonville profes-
sional engineer and project
manager Eugene Hagan.
The road

between the
city of
Jacksonville and the city of
Atlantic Beach, were scheduled
to begin this summer, according
to Atlantic Beach Public Works
Director Rick Carper. However,
the original estimated costs have
increased since the project's
inception two years ago, accord-
ing to Hagan, and the project
may be delayed by three to six
"Prices have escalated over the
last two years," Hagan said, refer-
ring to the cost of construction
and the cost of asphalt, which is
a petroleum-based product.
"When the gas. prices
increased, asphalt did too," he
Hagan explained that the
Florida Department of
Transportation originally allo-
cated $2.8 million for the proj-
ect. The total cost of the project
was first estimated at $4.8 mil-
lion, but the most recent esti-
mate is $7.8 million, he said.
The next step is to request
more money from the FDOT,
which could set the project back
three to six months, Hagan said.
"I think they'll be receptive,"
he said.
However, if the FDOT does
not provide the extra money
needed, then the project could
possibly be scaled down.
"We won't be getting that
Mercedes, we may be getting a
Chevrolet," Hagan said if the
funding is not available.
Although the road resurfacing
will not be cancelled, Hagan
said, the landscaping could be
considerably limited if FDOT
does not provide additional

CR210 road
patterns alter
Beginning Monday, the east-
west traffic flow along County
Road 210 (Palm Valley Road)
through Nocatee will be perma-
nently diverted to the new 3.2
mile stretch of Nocatee Parkway
and Coastal Ridge Boulevard.
Traffic will begin utilizing the
northern two lanes of these new
roadways when traveling
between Ponte Vedra and U.S. 1.
The portion of CR 210 east of
Ranch Road that runs through
the area in Nocatee that will be
developed as its Town Center
will close to traffic permanently
with this traffic shift.
The rerouting of traffic to
these new roads is being done to
allow completion of the new
interchange at Nocatee Parkway
and Crosswater Parkway. Final
completion of these roadways
will occur late this summer.
Once completed, Nocatee
Parkway and Coastal Ridge
Boulevard will combine to serve
as a four lane highway for east to
west traffic from the Intracoastal
Waterway Bridge to U.S. 1.

End of an era

Last full-serve station yanks gas


will still offer

auto care

Gas sales are

not profitable

"Fill it up" will be an outdated
phrase here as the Beaches bid
farewell this week to its last full-serv-
ice gas station.
Beach Plaza Shell is getting out of
the gas business completely, leaving
no full-service stations east of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
The longtime Shell station will
now operate as Beach Plaza Auto
Care at the same site, 1120 Beach
Blvd. in Jacksonville Beach.
Buster DeLay will continue over-
seeing operations at his business and
said Wednesday the business will
strictly operate as an automotive
repair business weekdays, 7 a.m. to
5:30 p.m.
For nearly 17 years, Delay has
operated as a dealer for Shell
Petroleum. He said the company

The gas pumps are covered and
will soon be removed.

approached him several times in the
past few years about the possibility
of selling the property to him but
something always came up.
This time, Delay said, it's the real
"They took the tanks out so it
looks like they are pretty intent on
selling it to us," he said. "Basically I
think they were waiting on the road
to be widened."
As a dealer for Shell, Delay said the
gas company must give him the first
right of refusal to buy before offering
to sell the property to other prospec-
tive buyers.
"As long as I keep my end of the
lease up, they couldn't sell it without

offering it to me, first," he said.
"There are still some dealers around
but most of the companieswant to
run [the stations] themselves."
Delay said the decision to stop sell-
ing gas wasn't a difficult one to
make. Being an independent dealer,
he wasn't able to price the product as
cheaply as the larger corporate com-
"We've been losing money on gas
for a long time now," he said. "The
only way to make money on gas is if
you have a big convenience store.

2 sites eyed

for new JB

post office

A site review committee has identi-
fied two potential sites for a new post
office in Jacksonville Beach.
Doug Reed, vice president of facilities
for the U.S. Postal Service, recently noti-
fled city officials that the location's
include a former movie theater ini
Neptune Beach and vacant commercial
space in the Beach Plaza shopping cen-:
Reed. said the 18,500-square-feet of
existing space in the shopping plaza
adjacent to Ollie Koala's is large enough
to accommodate a postal facility. -:
The old Neptune Beach Movie Theatre
building at 1225 Atlantic Blvd. woultfi
have to be rebuilt to suit the project.
A notice of intent was posted Feb. 26.
at the existing post office at 7th Aveniue
and 3rd Street North. In compliance!
with postal regulations, the community
and post office employees can submit
comments within 30 days.
Real estate specialists have searched for
an alternate site for the post office since;
the property was purchased in 2004 by'
Beach United Methodist Church at 352:
7th Avenue North. The post office leases
the space but the lease expires in 2009.-,
Jody Sloan, a real estate specialist with
the U.S. Postal Service, said approximate-
ly 6,000 square feet is needed to con-
struct a facility comparable to the size of
the existing location
Comments about the proposed loca-
tions must be addressed to Reed, Vice
President of Facilities, at 1735 North
brown Road Suite 200, Lawrenceville,
Ga. 30043-8153.

Lunsford act axes

... some workers
Wf, Sl/owK Nease track

Work on the field area of Nease
High School, which has not been fit
for track meets for five years, has
slowed because some employees of a
contractor did not pass requirements
of the Jessica Lunsford law.
Although the contractor confirmed
Thursday that the requirements of the
law have cut his staff and slowed the
work, he said he expects to be finished
by the April 17 deadline.

Mother Antonia does whatever she
can for the people in the prison. She

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists

It is difficult for driver's to turn south onto Seminole Road from Ocean Boulevard at this intersec-
tion in ,' ..,, Beach, according to Public Works Director Rick Carper. He said the intersection is
a safety hazard. Staff is investigating various options to improve the intersection.

The Atlantic Beach Public Works Director will
explore options to improve a "sharp angle" at an
Atlantic Beach intersection that he considers a
safety hazard.
Public Works Director Rick Carper explained
to the City Commission at a meeting Monday
that the intersection at Ocean Boulevard and
Seminole Road is a safety hazard for vehicles try-
ing to turn south onto Seminole Road from
Ocean Boulevard, he said.
"The condition is bad. The corner can't be
made by anything other than a passenger vehi-
cle," Carper told the commission.
Carper has proposed to cut the corner off and
remove a palm tree so that the left turn would
be nearly perpendicular to the road.
The project, as proposed, would cost approxi-
mately $50,000, according to Carper. The com-

who represents Ponte Vedra,
said he was asked b\ a
Coalition men'ibei to look
into extending the road for
evacuation purposes.
Manuel asked county
administrators to investigate
whether the road extension
would be feasible and
whether it would help allevi-
ate traffic problems.
But the message from most
of the Coalition members in
Monday's meeting was a
resounding "No."
"We fought that [eight years
ago] and We thought it had
died," 'said Barbara
Weinburger, who represents
Dolphin Cove in the
The suggestion was to
extend the road through a
large power line easement
that starts between the Target
and World Market shopping
centers and runs south to
Ponte Vedra Lakes Boulevard.
When the county investi-
gated the extension years ago,
Weinburger said, it discovered
that more land would be
needed to make the road wide
enough to meet standards.
That would require the tak-
ing of land through eminent
domain, she said.
Tim Franklin of the Ponte
Vedra Lakes Homeowners
Association said the county
also would have to enter into
eminent domain procedures
just for the right to use the
land for anything other than
electrical purposes.
Furthermore, Ponte Vedra
Lakes Boulevard is a privately
owned road, which the home-
owners must help maintain.
Many agreed that Ponte
Vedra Lakes Boulevard is
already congested with people
using it to cut through from J.
Turner Butler to State Road
With the extension of
South Beach Parkway, the traf-
fic along that private road
would only worsen, many

explore other alternatives to solve the problem.
"It seems to me we could do something that
would be less than $50,000," said Commissioner
Sylvia Simmons.
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher asked ifa traffic
analysis could be done, explaining that while it
is a difficult intersection, he has not heard of
any accidents.
However, Commissioner Dezmond Waters
explained to his fellow commissioners that it is
an especially difficult intersection to navigate at
"I, as an elder villager, know this," he said.
The commission opted to explore other
options to improve the intersection and request-
ed that staff conduct further research and report
back. Mayor Don Wolfson even suggested that
the project could possibly be a volunteer-based
beautification project.

Dance studio seeks variance

The owner of a Jacksonville
Beach dance studio is seeking a
parking variance for a pro-
posed site at 1250 Shetter
Nancy Tuttle, who operates
the NancyDance Studio in the
Beach Plaza shopping center, is
asking the city's Board of
Adjustment to grant a variance
request for seven parking
spaces in lieu of the 30 spaces
required by city code.
Tuttle is considering the pur-
chase of 4,400-square-foot

existing warehouse space to
convert into a dance studio.
She has operated in the city for
23 years. Rising rental costs,
she said, are driving the need
to purchase the property.
The city's zoning laws
require one space for every 100.
square feet of enclosed space.
The proposed site currently has
20 dedicated spaces with an
additional 20 public parking
spaces adjacent to the property.
A hearing will be held on her
request at 7 p.m. Tuesday at
Jacksonville Beach City Hall.

Following the publication of

"The Prison Angel" in 2005
requests for Mother Antonia to
speak around the United States
have increased, said Smith.
While she is in Florida
through March 8, Mother
Antonia will also visit with
groups in Sarasota and Winter
Park, said Smith.
She will speak in the Cultural
Center on Our Lady Star of the
Sea's campus at 545 SR A1A in
Ponte Vedra. Her talk, which is
not a fundraiser, will begin
sometime around 10:15 to
10:30 on Sunday, said Tellam.
Mother Antonia is a "very
captivating and interesting

"We never know what she
will speak about. There is never
a speech planned," said Smith.

Gas: No more full serve at Beaches

Cont. from A-1
Dealers, he said, buy the gas
from the company and sell it
at a higher cost. That system
offers very little profit.
Fluctuating gas prices also
make it difficult for dealers to
stay current with the market.
"What people don't realize
is that when the price of gas
was $3 a gallon, credit card
fees are two percent," Delay
said. "Think about that. A
gallon of gas is $3 and two
cents on a dollar is credit card
fees. That's six cents a gallon
in fees. And your average
dealer like myself makes eight
to 10 cents a gallon."
Delay said convenience
stores can sell gas just a few
cents over the cost because
the rest of the in-store mer-
chandise is marked up 30 to
35 percent above retail cost.
When people are in a mad
rush to stock up on gas during
the threat of a hurricane or
other national threat, more
gas is sold but dealers don't
make much per gallon.
State law also prohibits
price gouging, a practice

Misty, who started working

Gerry Austin owned the sta-

Delay family came in.
Dorothy got her first car while
she was working there.
"Between the two of us

Delay said. "This is the end of

Other customers are regular

To the editor:
This is in response to the
woman who claims that
Ponte Vedra needs more fast
food places. In my view, fast
food joints are the last thing
that Ponte Vedra "needs".
Look around at all the
McDonald's trash along A1A.
Do you really want to start
seeing even more trash from
Wendy's, Burger King and all
the others? Not only that, but
the existence of more of these
places would be aesthetically
unappealing to the character

Commission meeting on Feb.

addressed by the board.
: During this discussion I
spoke to the debacle regarding
responders to the slaughter of
students at the high school in
Colorado. In expressing my
disgust regarding that inci-
dent, I used inflammatory ver-
bal imagery that some people
have found offensive. It .is time

now for me to apologize'toi
anyone who was offended ibyl
my remarks. If you were
offended, please accept my sin-

I did not approve of it at

Horse feces unwelcome Science must be fact based

To the editor:
I just returned from walking
on Mickler's beach. And as
most every day when the
weather is nice, I had to either
6old my nose or smell the
stench of horse feces every 100
feet or so. I have no problem
with horses on the beach. In
fact, I think they lend charac-
tgr. What I do have a problem
with is the lack of considera-
ton of riders toward others on
tife beach. Why is it that they
&re not required to wear the
s!me "diapers" as the horses in
S Augustine.
* If they wore them, the riders
themselves would be the only
ones having to deal with the
smell. I don't understand why'

their right to ride their horses
supersedes my right to be on
the beach without having to
put up with the stench of
horse feces.
I've read letters from riders
complaining that dogs also
defecate on the beach and
nobody makes them wear dia-
pers. I agree, but I don't think
you can compare the size and
smell of dog feces (even those
of large dogs) with those of

relva Marina CC not obligated to iLinkside

Selva Marina CC not obligated to Linkside

To the editor:
After reading Mr.
Ricciardelli's letter published
Feb. 23, 2007, I feel compelled
to respond to his statements
about Selva Marina Country
Club and our proposed plans (I
use the pronoun "our" because
as a member of Selva Marina
Country Club, I'm taking
"ownership" because it is per-
sonal, not just business).
Let me begin by stating that
I, too, am a resident of Selva
Linkside and I do not distin-
guish between Unit I or Unit II
- in fact, I think it's utterly
ridiculous that one develop-
ment is segregated as such.
For purposes of this letter,
however, I will differentiate
between the two units and rec-
ognize the "Unit II" residents
who paid premium prices for
their lots and homes because
of the golf course view and to
those residents, I say, "shame
on you" for being bamboozled
by either the developer or the
former owner who sold you
your home.
Selva Marina Country Club
has never been obligated to
any resident of Selva Linkside
Unit II (or any other Atlantic
Beach resident living adjacent
to the golf course) to retain
their golf course view -- just
like the residents of SLU II
have never been obligated to
pay Selva Marina for their golf
course view.

"An invasion of your space?"
The property up to the fence is
rightfully your space, but
beyond that, the space belongs
to Selva Marina and the mem-
bers of the club.
Mr. Ricciardelli [complains]
about the increase in traffic,
environmental repercussions
of storm water runoff and air
pollution yet he says, "the
Club has other land available
that would not be intrusive."
It's the classic adage, "not in
my backyard" complaint So,
what is it? Do you oppose the
entire plan for Selva Marina or
just not in "your backyard."
Residents who live on the
golf course side of SLU II have
had the "privilege" of enjoying
this amenity. You're right -
there are no "guarantees" but
without a doubt if Selva is
not able to move forward,
think about this: How was the
land zoned BEFORE Selva
Linkside, Selva Lakes, Ocean
Walk, and all the other devel-
opments in which Atlantic
Beach residents reside?
Would you rather have
approximately 100 new resi-
dential homes or 900? This is
not an "artificial threat" or
"scare tactic" this is what
happens when the inevitable
becomes a reality. Selva
Marina Country Club's pri-
mary legal obligation is to its
shareholders -- to make the
best financial decisions which

affect their stock value (of
which I'm not).
The safety issues and con-
cerns that have been voiced by
the residents in SLU II and the
inconveniences when this
development begins have not
fallen on deaf ears. Selva and
the developer will be com-
pelled to ensure that all safety
requirements be closely
adhered to and monitored and
that the inconveniences will
be kept to a minimum as much
as possible.
Selva Marina Country Club
has been and wants to contin-
ue to be an integral part of the
Atlantic Beach .community.
The last thing Selva wants this
development to do is bifurcate
the community in fact, the
main objective of this
improvement is to give
Atlantic Beach families a won-
derful, beautiful, updated place
to socialize, grow and cultivate
life-long friendships. But sim-
ply put: Selva can grow, or
Selva will go.
I urge the Mayor of Atlantic
Beach and its City
Commissioners to make the
prudent decision of supporting
the proposed recommendation
of its Community
Development Board regarding
Selva Marina Country Club.
Maria D. Mark
Resident of Selva Linkside
Member of Selva Marina

Shame on

NB council

for caving in

To the editor:
I'd like to make a comment or
two (as I'm sure many others
have already) about the
impending Wal-Mart train
rolling to a stop in Neptune
Personally, I think it's a great
big cop-out that Neptune Beach
city council members are too
afraid to be the David to Wal-
Mart's Goliath and try to stop
the initiative. They're letting
Wal-Mart win, one way or the
other, however you slice it.
Would the taxpayers REALLY
object to spending money to try
and stop something that will
radically change the way all
Beaches residents live? Think
about it for a moment. With
that vote, what exactly has hap-
The local and small businesses
will face a major threat. Some
people, especially those who are
on a tight budget, will not want
to go to Proctor Ace Hardware to
get a hammer, when they can
buy one at Wal-Mart for a frac-
tion of the price. Wal-Mart has
a giant jewelry section, will that
put Monahan's out of business?
And that's just two examples.
Also, everyone who has to
interact with Atlantic Boulevard
east of the Mayport overpass
will have to adjust their travel-
ing schedule at least somewhat.
Nobody in their right mind can
tell me that having a Wal-Mart
will ease traffic congestion, no
matter how much of an effort is
made. You cannot tell me that
an Atlantic Boulevard that is
backed up to the overpass on a
summer Saturday afternoon
with people going to the beach
won't be backed up significantly
when hie \Val-Mafrt arrives.'
Third, has anyone looked
behind the old shopping center
building? Do you see the fence
just a few yards away, and the
houses on the other side? How
do you think those people will
feel about Wal-Mart moving,
quite literally, into their back-
yard? I, for one, would certain-
ly like to hear their opinion on
the subject. Granted, conces-
sions can be made so that no
deliveries arrive between 10
p.m. and 7 a.m. or whatever, but
I know that I would not like the
feeling of having to turn up my
television so I could hear it over
the rumble of a semi truck every
And what about public opin-
ion? Didn't anyone on the
council hear the concerns? Is
their confidence held in a series
of concessions made by an ana-
lyst that aren't going to be
proven to work until all is done?
As a Beaches resident for a
number of years and someone
who once had the fortune of
Wal-Mart looking at property
right across the street from them
(when Admiral's Walk was
briefly considered as a potential
site for a Supercenter let's not
forget, that "Wal-Mart at the
Beach" is NOT a new idea), I
have to say I am appalled at the
ease of the Neptune Beach City
Council in handing the proper-
ty over to the giant company.
Yes, it's been a year, but the
council voted 4-1. What exact-
ly changed their minds?
The only good I can see com-
ing out of this is the use of the
property. Neptune Theatres still
sits empty after closing, the
property attracting no business.
Proctor Ace Hardware recently
moved into a grocery store site
that had been empty for who
knows how long, and helped to
revitalize that shopping center.
During a time when businesses
move on to new property and
leave the old behind, it is good
to see someone interested in
property at the Beach. But that's
the ONLY good thing, trust me.
I call upon other Beaches resi-
dents to now use the only
power there is left: the power of
the consumer. I personally have
no desire to set foot in that new
Wal-Mart, and I plan never to
have to. If money talks, as it
seems is the case here, then I
will let mine speak as well.
The only thing in closing that
I can think to write is a para-
phrase of was on [a] sign for
quite a while: There's a perfectly

good Wal-Mart 7 minutes up
the road.

Attempted robbery

with a magic marker


A man wielding a black magic marker tried unsuccess-
fully to rob two convenience stores early Tuesday morn-
Ing in Jacksonville Beach.
Police said the man entered the Kangaroo gas station in
the 1000 block of Beach Boulevard at 2:29 a.m. and
demanded all the money by pointing what appeared to
be a marker at the clerk.
The clerk not believing the robbery attempt to be real
laughed at the man who was wearing a white bandana
over the lower portion of his face and told him to leave
the store.
He fled without any money, police said, only to
strike again an hour later at the Gate Station in the 300
block of 3rd Street South.'
Still covering his face with the bandana, the suspect
also used the marker to threaten the clerk who told
him she had no money. undaunted, the suspect asked
for cigarettes which he was also denied.
The man who is described as between 5'6" and 5'8"
in his early 20's was last seen fleeing the scene on a
red beach cruiser wearing jeans, a brown coat and a

sound plant to
treat wastewater

Jacksonville Beach officials
are gearing up to complete the
costly construction of a new
wastewater treatment plant.
Two of the city's Public
Works employees will return
Saturday from a week-long
trip to Europe where they
were to research some of the
area's technology.
"Europe has leading edge
technology in the wastewater
treatment field," Public Works
Director Ty Edwards said
Edwards said city officials
have worked closely with
stakeholders in the St. Johns
River Basin over the last two
years to develop advanced

wastewater treatment stan-
dards to reduce the total max-
imum daily load (TMDL) of
nitrogen in the water.
Nitrogen is considered a
pollutant and reducing the
amount discharged will
improve water quality in the
river, according to environ-
mental authorities.

Morgan and Marty Martirone,
the city's Public Works engi-
neer, left Feb. 25 for Belgium.
Morgan and Martirone,
traveling at city expense, were
to also visit, plants in
Northern France, Italy and
Germany before returning
stateside. They are traveling
with the engineering firm
Waitz and Moye, hired by the
city to design the new plant.
The firm is paying its own
travel expenses.
Travel costs were approxi-
mately $5,000 each for
Morgan and Martirone and
were funded from the city's
Public Works budget.
In Germany, the team
toured the manufacturing
plant Invent that developed
the city of Jacksonville Beach's

existing aerator mixer.
Edwards said the aerator was
installed for six months at no
cost to the city after the city's
former aerator failed. The
company was permitted to
demonstrate the equipment
for potential clients as part of
the agreement.
"Our staff were -really
pa,s,e.,. ,t,their -equip-
ment," Edwards said. "That
fall, we went to the Council to
purchased the mixer in place
at a reduced price."
Edwards said all of the plant
visited are of comparable size
to the Jacksonville Beach
treatment plant.
The team will review the
equipment with various repre-
sentatives. The Italian plant
Nouve is known for its state of
the art filtration systems,
Edwards said.
"The team were very
focused on this trip. It was a
very ambitious schedule of
visits and information gather-
ing," he said.
"We want to be very pru-
dent and wise in this invest-
ment. This is a major invest-

The City Cofincil last
December awarded the design
contract to Waitz and Moye
for the new treatment plan,
which is estimated to .cost the
city $20 million.

Edwards said the city will
receive $6 million in federal
funds to help facilitate con-
struction. The equipment will
be purchased from the manu-
facturer with a proven track
record and quality equipment.
The design will be complet-
ed in the early part of 2008
but Edwards said the city is
still "at the very front end of
this process."

NB installs emergency alert system this week

The Neptune Beach Police
Department can now notify
all citizens of an emergency
within 12 minutes as a result
of a new emergency notifica-
tion system, according to
Police Chief David Sembach.
First Call, an emergency
telephone notification net-
work company, installed the
system which allows dispatch-
ers to notify all citizens of

important information such
as weather problems, closed
roads and hurricane evacua-
tions, for example.
The department ran its first
- and only- test Wednesday.
"They [citizens] will know
that if they get a call from the
Neptune Beach Police
Department, it will be a very
important call that they need
to listen to," said Sembach,
who emphasized that the sys-
tem will only be used to place
calls in emergency situations.

The previous system took
about eight hours to contact
the entire city, said Matthew
Teague, Vice President of
Technical Operations for First
"The big thing is, we'll be
able to notify people of major
events in the city in a matter
of minutes, rather than
hours," Sembach said.
The new system allows dis-
patchers many more options,-
such as the ability to manipu-
late specific areas .of the city

and only call citizens in that
area, according to Teague.
This is especially useful in
notifying residents to be on
the lookout for a suspect or to
remain inside if a suspect is
expected in a specific area,
Sembach said.
The city of Jacksonville
Beach is also hooked up to
this system and the city of
Atlantic Beach is in the
process of getting it, according
to Teague.

Roger Akey (left) and Sally
Weinman of Ponte Vedra
Beach, the first to arrive at
Saturday's opening of Urban
Flats in Ponte Vedra, are
greeted by the restaurant's
owner, Matt Fairbairn.

"A goal without a plan is just
a wish" said Howard Smith on
day two of the city of Atlantic
Beach's strategic planning ses-
sion, where city officials and
.staff outline the city's major
goals for the upcoming year.
Howard Smith, who special-
izes in team-work and. has
worked with the city for several
years, facilitated two evenings,
totaling eight hours, of the
city's annual strategic planning
Officials and staff reviewed
the previous year to analyze
what has been accomplished
'and then looked forward to the

upcoming year and prioritized
what they thought were their
most important projects.
"I find this to be the one of
the most exciting times of my
year because the dynamics of
the city are molded and crafted
right here," said Mayor Don
The group discussed many
projects and ranked them in
tiered categories, including top
priority, high priority and
important priority.
The lists are comprised of
various projects and issues that
are not ranked in any particular
order within each category.
Projects in the "top priority"


Selva Marina Country Club Development
An application to change the land use of a portion of the
!golf course to residential use at the Club is up for debate as
.to whether it will be transmitted to the state. The commis-
ion is scheduled to discuss the issue at the March 12 com-
ission meeting.

District Representation
Because the next election is in October, the group decided
that the issue of whether to change from at large represen-
Ztation to district representation is something that has to be
examinedd soon. A study committee will produce a report by
une 30.
opkins Creek Retention Pond
Construction on the retention pond in the Hopkins Creek
aasin is estimated to begin in December. The pond will alle-
viate flooding and provide treatment. The city is already in
he middle of this project and funds have been allocated.

The city's current sanitation contract expires on May 31.
JThe city has selected a hauler to provide services for the new
Contract, which would change to a semi-automated sanita-
[lon collection. The new contract, which has not yet been
signed, will be discussed at the March 12 commission meet-
"ng. The new option allows for same day yard waste, recy-
i an jnd garbage collection and the city will be dhiided into
I t- zorh?. .
tate Legislative Actions
I Wolfson suggested that the commission, as a .group,
,become more involved with state legislative actions includ-
.ing property tax reform. The initiative is to reduce Florida
homeowners' property taxes.

iEnvironmental Regulations
The state department of environmental protection (DEP)
las implemented new rules that place limits on the amount
Iof nitrogen allowed from wastewater plants and municipal
storm water systems. Because of these rules, one of the city's
.wastewater treatment plants will have to be upgraded and
the second plant may also require some upgrades. These are
,state mandated requirements, and therefore, must be com-

The neighborhood was built more than 40 years ago and
,has not had any major improvements, with the exception of
a water distribution system. The project involves the relo-
cation of stormwater and sanitary sewers to the public right
of way and is still in its beginning phases.
. Other projects that are considered ."high priorities"
include the acquisition of the Buckman Trust property, plac-
ing electric lines underground in the business district, the
'town center overlay district, pedpaths, amendments to the
'tree ordinance and building a new police station.

Poison prevention

urged for families

In anticipation of National Poison
Prevention Week, March 18-24, Safe Kids
Northeast Florida and Wolfson Children's
Hospital are reminding parents to store haz-
ardous goods safely.
Poison control centers in the United States
receive 1.2 million calls each year as a result of
accidental poisoning of children ages five and
under. Each year, about 53,000 kids in that age
group are treated in emergency rooms for poi-
soning, and about 70 die. Nearly 90 percent of
these toxic exposures occur in the home, and
60 percent involve non-pharmaceutical prod-
ucts such as cosmetics, cleansers, personal care
products, plants, pesticides, art supplies, alco-
hol and toys.
"It doesn't take much to make a small child
sick," says Cynthia Dennis, RN, coordinator of
Safe Kids Northeast Florida/Wolfson Children's
Hospital. "Kids have faster metabolisms than
adults and anything they ingest will be
absorbed into the bloodstream very quickly. If
a product label says, 'Keep out of reach of chil-
dren,' there's a reason," states Dennis. "Keep it
up high and in a locked cabinet."
Safe Kids Northeast Florida reminds parents
to keep the poison control hotline number
"Memorize this toll-free number: 800-222-
1222," Dennis says. "Keep it near every phone
in your home and program it into your cell
phone." From anywhere in the United States,
this number connects to the local poison con-
trol center.
"Call 911, not poison control, if a child is
choking, having trouble breathing or having a
seizure," advises Dennis. "Follow the 911 oper-
ator's instructions. Do not induce vomiting or
give the child any fluid or medication unless

* Get your home tested for lead. Kids inhale the dust of lead-based paint
and can build up enough lead in their blood to affect intelligence, growth and
development. An estimated 890,000 children ages one to five have too
much lead in their blood. Lead-based paint was used in homes until 1978,
so it's important to have older homes tested.

* Install a carbon monoxide detector in every sleeping area. Carbon
monoxide is an invisible, odorless gas that builds up around fuel-burning
appliances and cars in garages and is present in tobacco smoke. It
can make a child seriously ill in concentrations that would barely affect an

Stay alert while using cleaning products or other potentially harmful
substances. A child can be poisoned in a matter of seconds. Never leave
kids alone with an open container of something you wouldn't want them to

Don't refer to medicine or vitamins as candy. Children should not think
of therapeutic substances as treats. And when you are administering
medicine to your children, follow dosage directions carefully.

Flush expired medications down the toilet if the label says it is safe to
do so. Otherwise, mix unused, unneeded or expired drugs with undesirable
substances like cat litter or coffee grounds and toss them in the trash
in nondescript containers. Also, store medications and any potentially harm-
ful products in their original containers with their original labeling.

Learn which plants are poisonous. Keep poisonous houseplants out of
reach, and teach children not to put any part of an outdoor plant in their
mouths without adult supervision.

Discuss these precautions with grandparents and relatives.
Grandparents may have medications that can be very dangerous to chil-
dren, and their homes might not be as well childproofed as yours.

Learn CPR. In less than three hours, you can learn effective interventions
that can give a fighting chance to a child whose breathing and heartbeat
have stopped. In Northeast Florida, call 904.202.BABY to find an infant/child
CPR and first aid class near you.

SSenators top Raiders in home opener


Fast times

cannot be

trusted at


T he NFL combine is fine
for entertainment pur-
poses, but all reports of
40-yard dash times should be
taken with a very large grain
of salt.
Wanna know how many
football players truly have
4.3 speed? Zero. That's right,
nary a single one.
Oh, there are plenty of
defensive backs and receivers
who have "clocked" a 4.3 -
or better in the 40 at the
combine over the years. But
those results are about as reli-
able as a two-dollar watch.
When Canadian sprinter
Ben Johnson ran a 9.79 in
-the 100-meter final of the
1988 Olympics he is believed
: to have covered 40 yards
f: aster than any human in
history. Timing experts have
".broken that race down into
10-meter increments and the
--upshot is that Johnson ran
".-"the first 40 yards in 4.38 sec-
That was in track spikes,
on a synthetic surface engi-
nieered for speed, on a warm
-afternoon with a slight tail-
-wind, after years of training
with'some of the best sprint
coaches on the planet. "
And, oh yeah, with a Jose
-':Canseco-sized medicine chest
-Eof steroids coursing through
Shis body.
There are other issues with
the 40-yard dash as it is
implemented in football:
There is no starting gun nor
an electronic device at the
finish line; it is hand-timed
by scouts with stopwatches.
Results, therefore, rely on
the reaction time of scouts to
start and stop their watches.
Additionally, most of those
timing the sprints use their
thumbs to stop the clock and
studies have shown the
thumb has a slower reaction
time than the index finger.
It's the stuff of NFL com-
bine lore that Deion Sanders
ran a 4.17 coming out of
Florida State, or Michael Vick
was timed in 4.25 or Bo
Jackson clocked a 4.14.
Obviously, none ot it's true
unless you believe football
players are half a second
faster than Olympic sprint-
According to the U.S. Track
Association, the true reading
of a hand-held time is to
round up to the nearest
tenth (a 4.3 becomes a 4.4)
then add .24 seconds. That
brings us to 4.64 and even
that may be generous.
Does any of this matter?
Well, yes, actually. Consider
the case of Jaguars receiver
Matt Jones, who came out of
Arkansas as a quarterback but
opened some eyes at the
combine when he ran a 4.37.
The 6'6", 242-pound Jones
Swas suddenly cast as fast
enough to be a wide receiver
prospect and Jacksonville
scooped him up in the first
round of the 2005 draft.
That led to a five-year,
,$8.45 million contract ($6.07
million guaranteed) for
S.Jones, who might otherwise
: have been a second- or third-
:.iound selection as a QB with
.an accompanying deep dis-
*count in salary.
The moral: A fast 40 time
z-can translate into millions of
Z.dollars. Atlanta Falcons cor-
7 nerback DeAngelo Hall has
:..said he owes everything he
-zhas ($25 million contract) to
zzposting a 4.3 at the combine.
As Mark Ziegler of the San
:zDiego Union-Tribune points
--out, grizzled track coaches
E.3ike to say, "the clock never

Fletcher uses

speed to help


seven runs

Fletcher High took advan-
tage of its speed on the base
paths to book a 7-1 victory
over District 1-6A rival Orange
Park Wednesday night at
Frank Hoye Field.
The Senators (5-2) outhit the
visiting Raiders 5-2, but manu-
factured most of their runs,
including a bases-loaded
squeeze play in the fourth
"I don't think we hit any
runs in," Senators assistant
coach Jim Timmons said after
the game.
"Everything was on the
move. We have to run this
year because we're not a big
hitting team. If the other team
walks a guy or something, we
can put them in trouble."
Fletcher center fielder Alex
Tiemeier opened the scoring
in the bottom of the second
after reaching on a bloop sin-
gle to left and then stealing
Senior table-setter Patrick
Braswell reached first on an
outfield error in the third and
stole two bases before scoring
on a throwing error at third.
Senior shortstop Sam Perry
scored off a sacrifice fly by
Kevin Lehane after reaching
on a walk and moving to third
on a hit-and-run by catcher
Corey Franklin.
The Raiders (4-3) committed
three errors and managed only
two singles, one of which was
a blooper to shallow right.
"Defensively, we didn't play
as well as we have been and
their sidearmer kept us off bal-
ance [at the plate]j, ,Orange e
Park head coach Michael '
Johns said.
"Fletcher did all the small
things that mattered. It's hard
to win in 6A when you play
bad defense and put only one
run on the board."
The Raiders opened the sea-
son 4-0, but fell to defending

Fletcher girls tennis earns key victory


The Fletcher High tennis
teams continue to thrive
with the boys squad picking
up a 3-2 win over Flagler Pal
Coast on Tuesday and girls
beating Flagler 4-3.

With the victories, the
boys remain undefeated at 4-
0 while the Senators girls
squad improved to 4-1.
In the boys match,
Fletcher's No. 1 June Condez
was a 6-4, 4-6, 10-2 winner,
Tanner Bell won his match
v. :eK- nw *:Ma .. a a,

6-3, 6-2, and Josh Franks
earned an 8-5 pro set victory.
Doubles competition did
not take place due to dark-
ness at the matches played at
Fletcher High School.
In the girls event, Kristen
LaCoste and Layla Assar were
among the singles winners
for Fletcher.
Girls coach Penny Rauckis
said a number of her
younger players gained valu-
able experience last season
in what was a rebuilding
year for the Senators. That
experience has paid off this
season with a 4-1 start
although tough challenges
lie ahead as the team hosts
Forrest next Tuesday, then
travels to Gainesville next
Wednesday to play
A change this season is
that the girls home matches
are played at Huguenot Park
in Jacksonville Beach.
"They've been very, very
helpful and very good to us,"
said Rauckis. "they helped us
out when we needed it."
The boys team puts its
unblemished record on the
line next Tuesday against
Forrest High at Argyle Forest,
then travels to Bartram Trail
on Wednesday before return-
ing home March 13 to host
Wolfson at Huguenot Park.
Boys coach Emory

Retro Run a real version of That '70s Show

N nostalgia: It always wafts
over me at his time of
year and I know it is all
because of the River Run. Very
likely, even more memories
than usual will return and
make me pause and reflect.
What we will witness on
March 10th will be more than
merely the 30th running of
the River Run, it will be a
landmark; a turning point.
The owners of the race, the
Jacksonville Track Club (now
rather pointlessly trying to
rename itself "JTC Running"),
have announced that this will
be the last "anniversary" race
until the race hits 40 in 2017.
By that time, the club may
or may not have pulled off its
name change; that is, of
course, if it is still around.
Sadly, many of the JTC's
pioneer members, stalwart
workers and race organizers
probably won't be. Venerable
Race Director, Doug Aired,
plans to back out of it in five
to seven years. Another seven
would give him 32 years at
the race's helm. He would

,t )


then be 65 years old.
"Maybe I'll be able to run it
for a change," he joked. "Or if
I can't run it, maybe they'll let
me fire the cannon to start it."
Chances are, a good many
other River Run organizers
and volunteers of Alred's gen-
eration would pack it in at
about the same time. People
like John TenBroeck, Lamar

Strother, Tom Skordas and
Alred's wife, Jane. They have
all been tireless, dedicated
slaves to the race. Where will
it be without them?
I hope that the JTC will
have the vision to put a new
team together and have it
waiting in the wings. In order
for the Gate River Run to see
40 it is going to need a seam-
less transition of power.
This year's race will, no
doubt, be the biggest and best
of the lot. An epic production
and a cast of thousands; more
like Cecil B. DeMille than JTC
More of everything, espe-
cially people. We are on-pace
for 16,000 in the 15K. The
previous record was just over
9,000 participants.
Ever seen an 80-foot long
birthday cake? You will at the
Gate River Run. You can see
the cake and eat it too.
There will be more to do
and more to win. A post-race
raffle will send one lucky River
Run runner home in a new,
free Toyota FJ Cruiser. Sorry,
but don't get your hopes up:

that vehicle is mine!
If you've ever wondered
what the first River Run
15,000 (its original title)
looked like you can come
downtown this Saturday
morning and take a picture of
it. The Retro River Run.kicks
off a week's worth of Gate
River Run festivities.
Although the Retro is only a
5K and crosses the Acosta
Bridge instead of the Hart, it
starts and finishes along
Coastline Drive just like the
original 1978 race. The field
has been kept down to 2,400
runners that's how many
ran in the first one and reg-
istration closed in November
when the race hit its ceiling.
Seeing 2,400 runners stand-
ing at the starting line on
Coastline Drive will be a real
1970s flashback.
To complete the time warp,
some runners will dress out in
1970s era running clothes in
hopes of winning the Retro
costume contest. Oh boy,
skimpy, clingy, too-short
nylon tricot running shorts
and cotton tube socks. Far out.

It will be great fun and a
nice jog down memory lane.
The Retro gets underway at 5
p.m., followed by a party with
a live band.
The Retro is a nice try but
nothing can bring back the
feeling of that first great race:
The excitement, the anticipa-
tion, the drama and the
euphoria of the first "Running
Boom." It can never be dupli-
For the vast majority of us, a
race with 2,400 runners
seemed immense. The sight,
with the mighty St. Johns
River as a backdrop, was awe-
A few local runners though
had already experienced a big
race, the New York City
Marathon of 1977, and when
Jacksonville attorney Buck
Fannin came home he was
convinced that our city
should have such a showpiece
A JTC Board Member,
Fannin had little trouble talk-
ing the gung-ho young club
into going along with his idea.
He created the course and

even took on the hard, thank-
less job of race director, which
he did for the first two River
Fannin produced and direct-
ed a truly fine race, one that
has matured into a world-clas;
event. In 1978 he did it on a
shoestring budget too; the
entry fee was just $3.
I hope that all of you have o
wonderful and memorable
Gate River Run. Perhaps one
day you will feel as nostalgic
about this one as I do some ot
mine. It's a nice feeling to

Exercise may be beneficial for those

with arthritis, a new study concludes

Often people with arthri-
tis think that they can-
not exercise, for it will
only make their problem
worse. This is not true.
Arthritis is the leading cause
of disability among elderly
adults, but there are certainly
forms of exercise that you can
do that will help keep not
only your bones and muscles
strong, but may actually be of
benefit to the remaining carti-
lage coating on the ends of
your bones..
It is a commonly held
notion as well that exercise
will lead to the development
of arthritis, but researchers also
believe this to be false.
Using highly sensitive MRI
studies, researchers were able
to show "compositional

The changes suggest that
human cartilage responds to




exercise in a way that is similar
to muscle and bone and may
have important implications
for preventing osteoarthritis of

Tennis shoes can
protect older adults
from falls

small change can make a
big difference. Hip frac-
tures are a leading cause
of mortality in the elderly pop-
Many studies have shown
elderly patients who sustain a
hip fracture are at dramatically
increased risk of death within
a year from the time of the
injury. This would arise not
just from complications that
may arise from the surgery
itself, but also because of
changes that the patient may
experience with regards to

mobility and lifestyle.
With that being said, physi-
cians and family members
should look to do anything we
can to reduce the risk of a
patient or loved one sustaining
a hip fracture. One place we
can start is by taking a look at
shoe styles.
In a study recently pub-
lished in the Journal of the
American Geriatric Society,
over a thousand elderly per-
sons were followed over a two-
year period, and evaluated
specifically for their incidence
of falls as associated with what
type of footwear was being
worn at the time of the fall.
A total of 327 falls occurred
during this time frame, with
most occurring inside the
Different styles evaluated 1
included athletic or tennis
shoes, lace-up oxfords, flats,
boots, heels, slippers, and
going barefoot. By far, athletic
shoes were found to have the
lowest incidence of falls, offer-
ing some measure of protec-
This is likely due to the large
surface to ground contact area,
higher coefficient of friction
(less slippage), and wide sole
creating a more stable base.
So that being said, take a
small step for grandma, and

Cat in the Hat
classic celebrated

Ten fun facts about the classic
book "The Cat in the Hat."
The feline turned 50 this week.
"The Cat in the Hat" was pub-
lished jointly by Houghton
i Mifflin and Random House on March
i 1, 1957.
Seuss wrote the book in response
to a 1954 Life magazine article
complaining about the "insipid-
ness" of children's books whose illustrations
"narrow the richness of words."
Seuss deliberately limited the story to a
vocabulary of 236 words (already up
from the 223 words he had been asked
to use).
Seuss said in a 1981 interview that, due
to the limited word range, the book took
him nine months to complete, even
though he initially thought he'd finish it in a
The story is 1,626 words long. 54 of the :
236 words occur exactly once, and 33
occur twice.
6 according to the on-line factoid source
Wikipedia, the story's two kids prove to
be "exemplary 'latch-key children'" -- a
phrase that, despite its contemporary use, is
believed to have been created in 1944.
The Cat's appearance is believed to have
been inspired by a glove-wearing
Houghton Mifflin editor whom Seuss
said had "a secret smile." :
Random House estimates the book has
sold 10.5 million copies. As of 2000, it
was the 9th best-selling hardcover chil-
dren's book of all time.
The story was adapted into a critically-
bashed feature film in 2003. (hIronically,-
after Seuss wrote a 1953 movie from
which his control was wrested, he swore off.;.
future collaborations with Hollywood.)
1 O You can visit the Cat on-line, at, and E-mail him a
birthday card. For every card sent,
Random House Children's Books will donate
one book to First Book!, a nation-wide literary

Don't put protective coverings away just yet

A though we have had
beautiful weather, we
still need to wait a few
more weeks before pruning
off dead and mushy growth
leftover from the freezes.
We consider March 15 to be
. the earliest "safe" time, and
thus we expect no more hard
freezes or temperatures going
into the 20s. Don't put your
protective coverings away for
the season, though, because
we could easily have a cold
snap forcing the need to
cover any newly planted
Last week I discussed the
various types of St. Augustine
grasses, some old and some
fairly new, and one variety
called 'Sapphire' that is still
under research. Many folks
are likely to have one of the
St. Augustine types, and that
is fine because they are all
very capable of handling the
heat and humidity of our
summers. Each has its own
peculiarities, so if you missed
last week's article, call the,
Cooperative Extension and
ask for a brochure on St.
Augustine turfgrasses, or go
online and read about the
varieties for northeast Florida.
It feels and looks like crab-
grass, but it handles our cli-
mate pretty well.
If you will need to resod
only small areas, you will
want to resod with the same
variety that is already growing
in the rest of the yard.
Otherwise, you'll quite likely
end up with patches of color
and texture variation.
Now is the time to figure
that out, not when you are
faced with three types to
select from at the store and
you only have three hours to
get the job done.
While St Augustine turf is
the most common in neigh-
borhoods, we can also grow a
few others kinds of grass.
Zoysia is always advertised as
the miracle grass for every-
one, no matter where you
live, but it is not possible to
be such a miracle everywhere.
Florida is one of those places
where zoysia does only so-so,
unless you want to invest
your life savings into it and
* work constantly at its mainte-
There are a few positives
about zoysia, however: most
varieties can handle shade
better than other grasses, and
most cultivars are also quite


cold tolerant. It handles traf-
fic well and can adapt easily
to many soil types. It is a
pretty, fine textured grass
compared to St Augustine.
The negatives depend on
the variety, but generally,
they are susceptible to nema-
todes, a microorganism in the
soil that makes knots on the
roots and eventually kills the
grass. We have no control for
the nematodes, though scien-
tists are working on it.
Also, most varieties are slow
in getting established, often
are susceptible to brown
patch disease and usually are
prone to mole cricket trou-
bles. However, all these things
depend on the variety chosen
and the location where it is
planted. The following are the
varieties available with a
quick synopsis of their quali-
El Toro is known for its
quick establishment,
improved cool season color
and cold tolerance.
Emerald was released in
1955 and is the rich man's
dream where time and money
allow for all the right mainte-
nance. However, it produces a
lot of thatch, is very suscepti-
ble to brown patch, dollar
spot and leaf spot. These dis-
eases usually go hand in hand
with the most beautifully
green, lush lawns.
Empire is a low growing
type that has a very dense
growth habit. It doesn't do
well in the shade, but is easier
to establish than the others
and keeps its deep green
color. However, it, too, is sus-
ceptible to brown patch.
Meyer is the one most
often called the miracle grass
by the advertisers. Funny
though, it is not recommend-
ed for us and has done very

poorly in all categories when
Ultimate is not available
yet, but when it is, will be the
best for shade tolerance and
for getting quickly estab-
Final word about zoysia: I
know why you'd want it, but
just remember that it takes a
lot of money to give it all the
stuff it needs to look fantas-
tic. If it doesn't look fantastic,
it will look lousy. No gray
Centipede is one we are
often asked about. I will spill
all I know about it: it doesn't
like to be overly managed,
which is great, but it just isn't
genetically designed to give a
really good green color, so we
always want to fertilize to
make it greener.
When we do that, it works
against this type of grass, an'd
leads to what is called "cen-
tipede grass decline," a dis-'
ease that gets out of hand
rapidly. But, it doesn't take as
much mowing as the other
turfgrasses, and it has a bit of
cold tolerance.
Three types are all we have
research on. Centennial has
good cold tolerance but needs
acidic soil (good luck!), ham-.
mock has many good quali-
ties but has been found to
like south Florida far better
than here, and Tenn Turf,
released in 1999, has good
cold tolerance.
Common is what you'd
probably find here, and I
have no info on it. It has
been around for a long time.
It must have either a red or
yellow stem because that is
exactly what it is called.
Bermuda grass is the golfer's
dream but it has to be cut
with a reel mower and fertil-
ized, as well as treated for
pests, all the time. It is very
high maintenance.
Bahia grass is what is plant-
ed along the highways and in
large fields.
Folks who have acres and
acres of land might seed with
bahia. It needs mowing twice
a week in the summer
because it absolutely loves the
summer heat. It always looks
kind of weedy because seed-
heads are' visible. It can sur-
vive with almost no water, no
fertilizer, and mole crickets
are about its only pest. It
must have a lot of hot sun
and frankly, loves neglect.
Most neighborhoods would

not be pleased with the
homeowners who planted
bahia grass!
Seashore Paspalum is a
mouthful and yet some folks
have fallen in love with its
look. It is commonly used on
athletic fields and golf course
fairways. Homeowners
replaced their St Augustine
with it, and many found that
they ended up with a high
maintenance lawn needing
mowing twice a week in the
dead heat of summer, and
that it was easy to scalp when
being mowed. This scalping
only lead to diseases and
insects. It is considered a
"very high maintenance turf-
So, you pick what you
want. I know that each of us
gets so frustrated with why
our lawn doesn't took as great
as our neighbor's, or say their
lawn maintenance company
is ripping them off, or throw
their hands up in utter frus-
tration vowing never to have
a lawn again.
I agree, it is hard to have a
nice looking lawn here, but if
we lower our standards just a
tad, we can be just as satis-
Frankly, with the 'environ-
ment in such a precarious
state right here, we need to
lower our standards when it
comes to the use of so many
chemicals, just "to keep
things looking great."

Last weekend two galleries
at the Beaches opened new
and very different exhibits.
The Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra opened an
exhibit, "Ground of Being,"
with works by Donald Martin
who has a very impressive
background. He has his mas-
ter's degree in fine arts from
the University of
Massachussets and serves as
professor of visual arts at
Flagler College.
He has had many one-per-
son shows, and his works are
in several private collections
in Florida. His exhibit at the
Center includes about twenty
charcoal drawings of Florida
These black and white ren-

editions of palm fronds and
palm trees of many varieties
twisted and curved in various
directions make patterns
which are interesting and
almost forbidding.
Students learn to draw with
charcoal as a preliminary to
learning to paint. In color
these works could be sensa-
tional, but in black and white
they seem like a study for a
lovely painting.
They exhibit the skill and
imagination of the artist, but
lack the beauty of our tropi-
cal Florida. View this exhibit
as a learning experience. The
exhibit will be at the Cultural
Center through April 14.
While at the Center register
for new classes which will
begin March 12. For informa-
tion call 280-0614 or visit The Cultural
Center is at 50 Executive
Way, Ponte Vedra Beach.
Another opening last
Friday night was held at the
A. Charles Gallery in
Jacksonville Beach. Bonnie
Yales exhibits a wide variety
of colorful subject matter in
her paintings ranging from
cityscapes to portraiture.
And many of the works
recorded her travels which
must have been happy as the
works reflect joy as well as
subjects and locations around
the world.
The colorful paintings also
reflected the joyful and
friendly atmosphere this
gallery opening provided.
Also on display were works
by sever local artists includ-
ing jewelry and crafts. Visit
this gallery at 228 3rd Ave.,
Jacksonville Beach. Call 249-

Tt seems werewolf movies, if
they're to draw popular
.interest among the prime
'8-25 nriqgJng sest and the
"~oth" crowd, must portray
-Iashing farags'atid screaTiing
rnubile females.
: "Blood and Chocolate" rejects,
this formula, using instead a
story of forbidden love
between a normal human male
and a lycanthrope female.
SUnfortunately, even experi-
enced director Katja von
Gamier ("Iron Jawed Angels,"
"Bandits") couldn't make this
film palatable. It's a plebian tale
with mediocre acting, though
cinematography is a bright
The story begins with Agnes
Bruckner (TV's "The Bold and
the Beautiful,") moving to
Romania. She spends her time
partying in nightclubs, appar-
ently to forget the pain that
caused her trip across the vast
ocean. It seems her parents,
identified locally, were killed by
bigoted humans though they

never explained if werewolves
hunted only humans or would
settle for whatever they could
find in the woods.
The heroine worked in a
chocolate shop, hence the
film's title. Then out othe.- -
blue comes Hugh DDaic 'y L ti: i.

ic novel artist who's come to
Romania to study local were-
wolf lore.
By sheer chance, he connects.
with Bruckner, utterly unaware
his dream girl transforms into a
raging beast when the moon
becomes full.
Bruckner can choose either
to run and hunt with the pack
or lead a solitary, lonely life.
The reason: Romanians know
about werewolves. A werewolf
alone soon becomes roadkill.
As you'd suspect, numerous
members of Bruckner's pack
don't care for her choice of
They fear he'll find out what
she really is, and a werewolf
pogrom would quickly follow.
The flick revolves around this
single but salient fact.

The celluloid was filmed in
Bucharest. Though its cine-
matography, chosen by
Brendan Galvin was excellent,
both the manner in which the
film was shot and its choice of
location give a dismal impres-'
sidin of the ages-old city. The '
script and plot simply don't
pass muster.
"Blood and Chocolate's" few
special effects were standouts,
such as humans transforming
into wolves. Though simple, it
worked effectively.
There was one bothersome
fact. During the credit crawl at
most flicks' ends is a boilerplate
statement explaining how ani-
mals used in filming were in
no way harmed.
Though a veterinarian was
on "Blood and Chocolate's" set
during production, only a weak
statement that could be inter-
preted in many ways left at
least two audience members

Reading the signs, learning to really 'see'

It's been far too long since
I've taken Carl Watson's
Saturday morning tour of
Willow Pond, in Fort Clinch
State Park, so this past Saturday
I decided to correct this. Wow,
it's amazing what I've been
Carl Watson and his wife
Judy moved to Femandina
Beach a dozen years ago, and
for the past decade, Carl has
been volunteering at the park
and conducting weekly nature
tours around the trails at
Willow Pond. Carl was trained
as a forester, and spent his
career working for Chevron
throughout the Deep South
where his hunting avocation
spurred his knowledge of
Once he retired to
Fernandina, however, his inter-
est in natural history and
wildlife tracking took hold.
Nurtured by the wildlife track-
ing books of Tom Brown from
the New Jersey Pine Barrens
and the many books detailing
Florida's natural history, and
enhanced by his own lifelong
knowledge of southern wildlife
and habitats, Carl has become a
Carl's natural history knowl-
edge spreads far and wide. Early
into. our tour, Carl stopped at a
saw palmetto and explained
about this plant's life history,
its adaptations to harsh climate
conditions and various human
uses of this plant through the
ages. Carl had unique informa-
tion to tell far beyond the
usual "canned nature talk," and
presented it in an engaging way
that related to the personal
experience of everyone in the
group. I'm sure if someone ohn
the tour was a botanist, or an
archaeologist interested in
native American uses of plants,
an entomologist interested in
butterflies or some other spe-
cialist, and Carl knew it, he
would have plenty of material

Pat Turley-Foster

to convey all along the tour
highlighting these aspects of
natural history.
But I was there, and I was a
mammalogist, and Carl knew
it. So, this particular Saturday
Carl's tour highlighted mam-
mals an amazing accomplish-
ment for a nearly two-hour
tour with nary a mammal in
sight. When it comes to mam-
mals, and mammal signs, Carl's
knowledge far surpasses mine,
despite my advanced degree
and specialty in mammals.
If I see an animal, I can most
often identify it. And if it is
"doing something" my knowl-
edge of animal behavior
gleaned from years at a zoo
helps me explain it. But it took
my walk with Carl to help me
"see" the animal signs through-
out the woods.
Take the stop at the palmet-
to, for. instance. Carl carefully
lifted a palm frond, and there,
on a covered frond was a nest
made from palmetto root
fibers, carefully carried to this
spot, and fluffed out into a soft
ball about eight inches across
with a small entrance hole. It
was a golden mouse nest! This
beautiful orange-colored native
rodent is rarely seen due to its
nocturnal habits and its need

for dense cover. It is the only
mouse in Florida that nests in
trees. And there it was, a gold-
en mouse nest something I'd
never have noticed if it wasn't
for Carl.
Then there were the game
trails crossing the human path
all along the route. Game trails
are visible to anyone who cares
to notice them, but to my eyes,
and the eyes of most people,
these meandering paths all look
similar no matter what animal
uses them. But not to Carl.
"This one was made by an
armadillo see how haphazard
it looks? It's really a feeding
route. Sometimes you can even
see the path its tail makes as it
drags along."
"Look at this trail it's a reg-
ularly used deer trail we'll see
it later on our walk, where it
crosses our path again. Notice
how disturbed the soil is from
the hoofs right where the deer
left our path." And, "This trail
was made by raccoons they
never enter and leave an area
by the same trail, and do not
disturb the soil with their dain-
ty feet."
Later we took a detour to see
a "hog wallow" (pronounced
"waller"). Wild hogs are nonna-
tives which have invaded Fort
Clinch State Park. Despite
efforts to trap and remove
them, hogs continue to
destructively churn up the soil.
I've seen this damage myself -
it's hard to miss. But, the hog
wallow was new to me, a mud
hole just hogsized for cooling
off in. Carl also told me of
another spot, off the trail, that
is strewn with hog hair from
some intraspecies confronta-
tion something for me to find
on my own; now that I know
the place. This was all just for
starters, catering to my interest
in mammals. I can't wait to ask
him about mushrooms next.
You'll be hearing more about
Carl and his wildlife knowledge'

At left, Beautiful golden mice
make their nests and feeding
platforms on the fronds of saw
palmettos along the Willow
Pond trail.

one of his "regulars." And if
you, too, want to hear Carl's
slant on the natural history you
are interested in, come to the
Willow Pond parking lot in Fort
Clinch State Park at 10:30 a.m.

Judy will be happy to see you.

Speed cleaning only takes a few minutes

No one likes to have a
dirty house, but when
kids, cooking, and job
all make demands of you, it's
easy to see why housekeeping
goes to the back of the line or
falls out altogether.
So, what do you do when
you need to clean house but
don't have the time? Change
your standards

Unreasonable standards
When you look back on
your life, the things that stay in
your mind are some of the
things related to homekeeping
not how much time you spent
at the office. It's home and
hearth you remember, you
pine for, you need.
Too many people think that
they have to either be
".,titha 'or give up on home
chores completely. It's not an
"eitherior" situation.
Perfection is not the goal, a
reasonably clean house is -
and it needs to involve every-
one. Housekeeping is not a
"mom" or "dad" or "mom and
dad" :, .', It's a "whoever lives
in the house needs to help"

or a vacuum. Set the timer for
five minutes. Everyone go at it
- straighten, put things away,
