In midst of flap over whether
painting is art or a sign
A painting on the side of a business in Neptune
Beach has sparked such a debate over signs that the.
Mayor has called a special meeting to brush up on
the city's sign ordinance.
Day and Night Moves, a moving company in
Neptune Beach, has a mural of a sun and moon on
the side of the building that the city defines as a sign
because it is a representation of the name of the busi-
ness, according to City Manager Jim Jarboe.
However, owners Joe and Shari Quest consider it
art and did not seek a sign permit from the city.
The Planning and Development Review Board
agreed with the city's view and voted against a vari-
ance request Tuesday. An Oct. 1 city council hearing
on the matter is planned.
But, Mayor Dick Brown has called a special meet-
ing at 6 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 116 First Street, to
discuss the city's sign ordinance.
"We need to make it clear that we are going to pur-
sue an aggressive policy or do something more cre-
ative," he said. "We need to clarify our position on

Signs are limited to a certain square footage in
ratio to the building size and the painting at Day or;
Night Moves exceeds the square footage limit for a.:
sign, Jarboe said.
"I personally like this picture, but because it meets
the definition of a sign, it has to be treated as a sign,"
he said. "If there were not some restrictions, you
could have all kinds of things."
For example, Jarboe said that Wal-Mart could paint
a smiley face on the side.of their building or KFC
could paint a picture of Col. Sanders.

Who do cheerleaders appreciate?

Former cheerleaders get
invitation to sidelines for
homecoming next week
Kathy Shoemaker, who teaches
English and reading at Fletcher and
is a 1966 graduate of the Seagate
Avenue high school, was embar-
rassed when she told her son she
couldn't call him Tuesday.
"'I'm going to cheerleading. prac-
tice,'" she said to her college-student
son. "And he laughed, because I'll be
59 on my next birthday."
Shoemaker is one of maybe a
dozen alumni who will be joining
this year's Fletcher cheerleaders on
the sidelines Sept. 28 for the
Senators' homecoming game with
Stanton Prep.
Kelly Sails, the first-year cheerlead-
ing coach, hopes more former
Fletcher cheerleaders join in
"We decided to get the alumni
involved at the school," Sails said
Tuesday. "We wanted to bring back
anybody who was interested in
cheering the first half."
Sails said alums are welcome to
cheer the second half, too, adding, "I
just thought they might be tired or
would like to socialize with girls they
haven't seen in years."
The invitation is still open.
"If anybody's still in contact with
people, whether they're local or not

graduate; Erinn Hayes, Class of 2002;
and Aftan Sparkman and Vashawna
Thomas, both '04. Sails said, "They're
very excited to be coming back."
"It's fun to do," said Shoemaker.
"As a teacher here, that's interesting
to me. But it's kind of funny to be
going to cheerleading practice."
Over the years, Shoemaker has
seen Fletcher cheerleaders and knows
what they can do.

things they can do, because I'll break

Fake cops rob

2 men in JB
Two suspects posing ,as undercover police
officers forced a pair of U.S. Navy sailors
against a wall and.robbed them just after mid-
night Monday in' a Jacksonville Beach alley.
:The victims told police they were walking
east in the alley in the 200 block of 1st Street
North when two men ran up from behind and
pushed them into a brick wall, claiming to be.
undercover officers doing random searches in
the area.
According to a police report, one of the sus-
pects was wearing a t-shirt that read "narcotics
police." Both were in their early 20's.
The victims told police they were instructed
to place their hands against the wall while the
suspects searched their clothing and removed
both of the men's wallets.
A Jacksonville Beach police officer patrolling
the area observed the men with their hands
against the wall and a man patting them
The officer pulled in to determine what,was
going on because all of the men looked direct-
ly at the officer.
The victims said they assumed the search
was real and started laughing when the squad
car pulled up, the report said. The suspects
searching the men walked away across a park-
ing lot.
According to police, one of the victims said
"this must be a set up" as the car pulled up.
When the officer asked what he meant, the
victim said "aren't you with them?"
The officer then questioned who the sus-
pects claimed to be and the victims said they
were told they were undercover officers.
Police said at that point the victims realized
they had just been robbed. The suspects stole
the victim's wallets credit cards, drivers licens-
.es, military identification and $200 in cash.
The officer attempted to pursue the suspects
on foot but they were out of sight, police said.

King spent majority of

Navy career at Mayport

Capt. Charlie King in June 2004, when he took
command of Mayport Naval Station.

Today's change of command ceremony at
Mayport Naval Station will be a bittersweet
one for outgoing commanding officer Capt.
.Charlie King.
The Mayport base has been an integral
part of King's 27-year military career.
Mayport was King's first fleet assignment
in 1985. He was married in the Mayport
chapel in 1986 and lived in base housing as
a junior grade lieutenant.
Mayport also is where King, a 1982 U.S.
Naval Academy graduate, won his spurs as a
helicopter pilot, first as an charge
of a helicopter detachment and later as a
squadron commander.
"A lot of people can fly. Some fly by the
book and others fly with the aircraft," Dr.
Bruce Brunson, a retired Navy commander
who was King's instructor pilot, said

Mayport CO set to retire

- KING, from A-1

Fletcher Homecoming to reunite cheerleaders

o CHEER, from A-1

"I was an aggressive trainer
of co-pilots, some of whom
flew in fear. But Charlie's reac-
tion to that was, 'Give me
more.' He was comfortable fly-
ing on the edge."
King, 47, is scheduled to
relinquish command of
Mayport today in a ceremony
on the base. His successor is
Capt. Aaron Bowman.
King actually was due to
retire from the Navy in Sept.
30, 2001, after commanding
Mayport-based Helicopter
Squadron Light 46 (HSL-46).
He was on terminal leave
when 9/11 happened. On Sept.
13, 2001, he revoked his retire-
ment papers.
"My wife said, 'Stop watch-
ing the TV and get back into
the Navy,' King recalled in an
interview this week.
"I reported to the HSL Wing
staff as chief staff officer. Then
I went to work as Admiral
Boensel's XO [executive officer]
at NAS Jacksonville."
King was tapped as
Mayport's CO in June 2004, an
assignment that returned him
to his old flying grounds.
Fresh out of flight school in
1985, King was assigned to
HSL-42. The unit flew newly
minted Seahawk helicopters, a.
ubiquitous aircraft still in use
at the base.
"We only had four planes.
We all fit into one little
hangar," he said.
Some consider King a plank
owner in HSL-42, even though
he didn't come aboard until
the unit's fourth detachment
was formed.
His first sea deployment with
HSL-42 was on the USS
DeWert, a frigate still based at
Brunson was the officer in
charge of the Seahawk detach-
ment on the DeWert.
"He was a very good stick,"
King recalled.
"He made you fly the air-
plane in every mode of degra-
dation. The training I got from
him saved my life. And I
imparted that wisdom to the
kids I flew with."
King said he survived three
engine failures during his fly-
ing career and fondly remem-
bers "flying under the hood"
with Brunson, who made King
"turn all his good instruments
off" while in flight.
Brunson, a former instructor
pilot and department head
'with HSLZ42; ThiKing.'STying

skills and leadership potential
were apparent early on.
"He instantly became my
third-ranked lieutenant," said
Brunson, now a college profes-
sor and the executive director
of military and government
programs at Florida
Community College at
"He had an ability to relate
to the crew at all levels."
King said his "litmus test" as
a leader and as a pilot came
when he transferred to
Mayport-based HSL-48 as air
officer in charge of two
Seahawk detachments on the
guided-missile cruiser USS San
"That's when you find out if
you are going to be promoted
in the Navy," King said.
"You only get that experi-
ence by going to sea."
A former instructor pilot
with training squadron HSL-
40, King flew A-4's and F-14
jets before he switched over to
helicopters halfway through
flight school at Pensacola
Naval Air Station.
"I took a ride on a Blackhawk
helicopter during a helicopter
appreciation week [in
Pensacola] and it just blew me
away," King recalled.
"We were skimming the tops
of trees and doing all kind of
low-level stuff. I changed my
card [from jets to helos] that
A former high school soccer
player in Miami, King played
soccer at the Naval Academy
for two years. He also met his
wife in Annapolis when she
brought a birthday cake to one
of King's roommates.
Besides his flying tours, King
was embarked on the USS John
F. Kennedy as a carrier group
staff officer, participating in
Operations Desert Shield and
Desert Storm.
In 1996, he worked as a
financial analyst on the staff of
the Chief of Naval Operations
at the Pentagon.
"No one pushed me to. join
the Navy. There is no legacy of
Navy service in my family,"
said King, who is scheduled to
retire in January and will
attend his,25th class reunion
this weekend in Annapolis.
"After I tore up my knee
playing soccer, I knew the
Navy was going to provide me
with a future. But I never envi-
sioned I would be in the Navy

The Leader's Opinion

Wrong for city to

make it tougher

for residents to

remove trees

Atlantic Beach City Commissioners are looking at
making their tree laws conform with those in neighbor-
ing Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach.
Currently, Atlantic Beach residents who want to sim-
ply remove trees from in front of their homes can do it
without making a trip to city hall, filling out a form or
paying a fee.
Some want to change that and impose more red tape
on Atlantic Beach residents.
According to the proponents of the change, Neptune
SBeach and Jacksonville Beach require their residents to
secure permits before removing most trees 8 inches or
larger and, the proponents.say, that's a good policy to
be emulated.
We disagree.
Jacksonville Beach. and Neptune Beach residents
would be better served by fewer regulations on tree
Trees are a valuable asset. Properly planted they make
property more valuable. Those concerned with boosting
property values and that's nearly everyone do
not cut trees down without a very good reason.
Citizens living in single family homes should not
have to share those reasons with City Hall and beg per-
mission to landscape their property as they wish to
maximum effect.
Just because government can compel citizens to jump
through hoops, that does not mean that government
Atlantic Beach residents already have a better tree
ordinance than do their neighbors. Requiring individ-
ual homeowners to secure a permit is not a change for
the better.
The proposed revision ought to be axed.

To the editor:
Now that Jacksonville. has
re-committed to the much-

how aggressively Jay Jabour

a key player in a successful

These issues are always
hard for a councilmember.

Jabour was pressed hard by
friends and colleagues to set-

helping protect the only real

Not enough planning has been done

for new Ponte Vedra high school to open

To the editor:
I attended the "Information night" last
evening at Landrum and it was anything but
that. Most of the questions that. concerned
parents had could not be answered by either
new Principal Craig Speziale or Bill Fehling..I
understand trying to keep the public
informed is important, but they were not
ready to make this presentation. This was a
very premature meeting. No true fault of their
own, it was merely too early to answer most
questions that people had. I left this meeting,
feeling, confused and angry over the lack of
answers. One of the things I, as a parent of a
current Nease student am upset about was the
fact that my student, who has invested two
years at Nease will be forced to attend the new
school only because he is not an IB or
Academy student. This is wrong. He has an
allegiance to Nease, wants to graduate from
the school he started and is very involved in
sports and clubs. This is not fair, as a tax payer
I should be given the option as to what school

Go where grass is greener

To the editor:
This is in response to the let-
ter in the September 19 issue
The Leader titled "The truth is
wars are not fought. for free-
dom." The writer claims he is
sick and tired of the standard
statements that "people fought
and died so that I can have
freedom of expression." Well
maybe he would like it better
here if Adolph Hitler would
have completed his master
plan or how about we just
allow Bin Laden and his terror
network just keep attacking
our way of life.
I'm not sure what school you
may have attended, but I was

taught by the school that I
attended as well as from my
parents exactly what both
World Wars were all about. I
wish you would explain what
resources or land we gained
from either Germany or Japan
during those conflicts. Finally,
if you really believe we have all
been conditioned to accept our
"Imperialistic". government
that exploits these resources,
then I say why don't you leave
to find another better place to
live if you can. Obviously you
must think the grass is greener

of debate,

To the editor:
Mr. Wright's research into
U.S. History on war is partial-
ly right but mostly wrong.
America does need large
amounts of natural resources
to survive and it will protect
it's interests (countries we buy
resources from) when dicta-
tors try to take over them by
However, leaving small
numbers of troops in these
countries to help deter future
dictators from trying to take
over again is not what I would
call an occupation. Hitler was
trying to occupy land, the
communist were trying to
occupy land, but the U.S. has
not. Last time I checked, our
flag still has 50 stars. The U.S.
has 14 territories and they are
all islands. We must be
coconut crazy. By the way,
the U.K. has 15 territories and
the French have 16.
The reason other countries
have freedoms like we do in
the U.S. is due to the fact that
we are the role model most
everyone is trying to copy.
The United States is the great-
est country in the world but it
is not perfect nor does it claim
to be. So here is the biggest
freedom we have in the U.S.,
the freedom of choice. I hope
Mr. Wright and all who share
in his beliefs choose to leave

Swas dragging one of

of garbage" containers out
to the street for my one day
a week pickup, I was think-
ing how far we have
advanced with garbage col-
lection in Atlantic Beach. It
is hard to believe that once
our garbage was picked up
six days a week, and at your
back door if you wanted!
Yard trash was picked up
separately. "No flies in
Atlantic 'Beach" was more
than a slogan; it was reality.
If you were at a gathering
or party with people not
from Atlantic Beach and the
conversation was dragging,
you could chime in with
'"burPown 'as' 'sikx days a

and it was sure to revive the
conversation level, com-
plete with a fair amount of
"You're kidding" was the
normal response, and then I
would hear the horror.story
about how their garbage
was only picked up twice a
I would smugly think to
myself, that will never hap-
pen in Atlantic Beach and
sure enough I was right. We
now have it picked up only
once a week.
The transition came slow-
ly; sort of like creeping up
the temperature up on a
lobster in a pot of water so
he won't notice until it is
too late. First the frequency
was cut back because of
"economics". Then the
service once provided with
city equipment and city
workers was "sold" to a pri-
vate contractor; one of
those big companies that
advertised how "green"
they are. Then the service
went to two days a week,
and now it is down to one
day. Thank goodness they
can't cut it any more; they
have run out of days. I have
a conspiracy theory about
these national garbage com-
panies but I won't share it
I hear a lot of grumbling
about our current sys- almost think we
are New York or Los
Angeles. Heck, the cans
even have their own unique
serial numbers which
means you better not do
anything wrong with that
container because you can
be traced. Also, you better
not be a 90-pound weakling
if it is your job to drag them
to the street.
Since the volume of
garbage generated is con-
stant, are there better solu-
tions than one day a week
collection? You sure don't
want to be close to my cans
in the summer with one day
a week pickup. Maybe our
newly elected commission
might want to take up the
issue in 2008. Right now I
could really get behind a
candidate who promised
more frequent pickup and
lighter containers. Maybe it
is time for "basic" service
and then "deluxe" service at
a higher fee for those who
would want it.

We could call it Garbage
Lite and Garbage Heavy.

Anglican Beaches welcomes 1st vicar

The Rev. Gary Blaylock
became the first vicar at
Anglican Beaches Church on
September 1 and a special wel-
coming ceremony was held at
the church on September 9.
Blaylock's vision for
Anglican Beaches Church is
"to plant a church true to
Anglican beliefs and traditions.
It will be a place where people
at the beach can worship, a
place of healing, where they
can be involved in ministry,"
he said in a recent interview.
Anglican Beaches Church
began holding worship servic-
es in January of this year. A
group of 35 beaches residents
form the membership of the
church which is part of the
Anglican Communion, said
The Anglican Communion
is the worldwide organization
of churches which originated
in England in the 1500's. It is
divided into 39 provinces
worldwide. The Episcopal
Church in the United States
also belongs to the Anglican
Communion, he said.
In recent years, some area
Episcopal churches have cho-
sen to separate from the
Episcopal Diocese while
remaining within, the Anglican
Communion. At the same
time, new Anglican churches
within the Anglican
Communion have been started
There are 24 churches with-
in the Alliance of Anglican
Churches in Northeast Florida,
said Blaylock.

Blaylock plans to divide his
weekdays between the two
churches, with offices both in
Jacksonville and at the beach.
On Sunday, he will hold serv-
ices in the morning at Nativity
and in the evening for

Raised in the Episcopal
Church, Blaylock graduated
from both Forrest High School
and Jacksonville University. He
and his wife Leona live in the
west beaches area and have a
daughter in college and a son
in high school:
Blaylock said he felt "called
to the ministry." He helped to
start Resurrection Episcopal
Church in Arlington where he
served for eight years.
At about the same time that
the congregation at the
Church of the Nativity decided
to leave the Episcopal Diocese,
Blaylock said he was reaching

Two books that
Rev. Blaylock said are
meaningful to him
are "A Simple Path"

and "The Case for

that recently he has
been rereading the
Gospel of John as
well as Chapter 13 in
1st Corinthians.

the same deci-
sion on a per-
sonal level.
In 2005, Blaylock separated
from the Episcopal Diocese "to
come under the authority of
another Anglican bishop."
Blaylock describes his deci-
sion as "a matter of con-
science" and "not an easy deci-
It was the result of his con-
viction that "the Episcopal
Church was making decisions
and moving in directions that
I and many others believe are
contrary to our faith," he said.
"The spark was the ordina-
tion of a practicing homosexu-
al as bishop."
However, there was more
involved than this one issue,
he said. There were also differ-
ences in areas of faith and also
what should be included -in
worship services.
The congregation at
Anglican Beaches Church
"know who they are and what

they want," he said.
The new church
and its vicar are
under the pastoral
oversight of a bishop
in the Anglican

Africa, he said.
"The Anglican

It is not unusual for
Anglican churches in
the United States to
have a connection
with bishops from
Africa and South
America, he said.

seas bishops has been inspiring
and beneficial, he said.
Blaylock has pledged to
evangelize the new church
within -the community., Both
he and church members can
help the church grown by
telling people about the
church, he said.
Currently Anglican Beaches
Church has Holy Eucharist at 5
p.m. on Sundays at Neptune
Baptist Church and holds Bible
The 1979 Book of Common
Prayer is used for the service,
said Blaylock.
Blaylock has an office on the

pus at 407 Third Street.

dAb Senators on course to achieve goals


'Why don't

you cover

the junior


Sy ThY don't you cover
junior varsity?" It's a
W V question we get
often usually when a player
has made the jayvee squad for
the first time and parents sud-
denly notice there are no
game stories in the paper.
Let's start with the basics:
It's not personal. We have
nothing against junior varsity
teams at Fletcher or Nease.
They prove a great training
ground for future varsity stars.
At the jayvee level, coaches
usually emphasize learning
the game and stress skill
development. Junior varsity
experience establishes the
basic building blocks that
players need before moving
up to the varsity squad.
Many of the Senators and
Panthers jayvee teams have
had great success over the
years and we do try to recog-
nize those achievements with-
in the pages of the Leader. A
season-ending wrap-up if a
team has gone undefeated or
distinguished itself in some
other way is not uncommon.
But v aisity sports at each
school keep us plenty busy
throughout the year. We sim-
ply don't have the manpower
to staff junior varsity games.
In fact, no newspaper does.
On the other hand, we fre-
quently see parents with cam-
eras along the sidelines of the
various sports we cover, and it
must be the same way at
jayvee games. Why not sub-
mit a picture or two and
maybe a short write up about
the game to sports@beach-
We run our Sports Briefs sec-
tion in almost every edition of
the paper and that would be a
perfect spot for junior varsity

Nease has completed its
1,000-mile odyssey through-
out the Sunshine State and
emerged with a 2-1 record.
Coach Craig Howard's offense
looked unstoppable in pound-
ing North Marion 35-14 and
Martin County 35-0.
But then the Panthers ran
up against some really good
athletes at Class 2A Madison
County. Despite jumping out
to a two touchdown lead,
Nease saw the Cowboys claw
back into contention and
eventually cash in on a two-
point conversion for a 15-14
QB Ted Stachitas threw
three picks in that game, due
mainly to relentless pressure
by the Madison County
But something else became
evident in that game: Nease
needs a reliable, go-to target
for Stachitas. The dropped
passes that were a footnote in
the Panthers' first two games,
looked like a glaring weakness
last week.
Maybe it's time for Hunter
Bates to get some reps on
offense. The sure-handed
defensive back and kick
returned could be used as a
third-down receiver or in
other pass-critical situations.
In his senior season, Bates
would probably love to con-

After a dismal prognosis, things

looking much better for Everett

T here is hope that Kevin
Everett, the Buffalo Bill
who suffered a cata-
strophic spinal cord injury in
the NFL season opener, may
walk again.
While attempting to make a
tackle, Everett's head snapped
down, and he then fell face
first directly to the ground,
and lay motionless on the
turf. He was taken off the
field by ambulance, and then
underwent emergency spinal
stabilization by Dr. Andrew
Cappuccino alleviated the
pressure that had developed
on the spinal cord, and then
stabilized the break between
the third and fourth vertebrae
by inserting a combination of
a bone graft, two rods, a plate
and eight screws.
Initially it was feared that
Everett would be completely
paralyzed from the neck
down, but as the week devel-
oped, he has shown some vol-
untary movement in his
hands and feet.
In addition, Dr. Cappuccino
immediately began treating
Everett with another new
treatment that is remarkable
in its simplicity. He ran iced
intravenous saline through
Everett's body in order to
reduce his body temperature
to 92 degrees, and in effect
putting "ice" at the site of the
injury, just as you would an
ankle sprain.
This was immediately start-
ed in the ambulance, contin-
ued in the operating room,
and into the ICU after surgery.
Dr. Cappuccino had only
recently learned about this
"modest hypothermia" treat-


ment from Dr. Barth Green, a
leading authority in spinal
cord injury and director of
The Miami Project.
"We've been doing a proto-
col on humans and having
similar experiences for many
months now," Green stated.
"This is the first time I'm
aware of that the doctor was
with the patient when he was
injured and the hypothermia
was started within minutes of
the injury.
"We know the earlier it's
started, the better."
Part of the University of
Miami School of Medicine,
The Miami Project is the
world's largest spinal cord
injury research center with
over 200 doctors and scien-
tists. Founded in 1985, by Dr.
Barth Green and former
Miami Dolphin great Nick
Buoniconti, the center's goal
is to ultimately find a cure for
spinal cord injury which leads
to paralysis.
The Project was started after
Buoniconti's son, Marc, was

paralyzed due to a tackling
injury suffered in a game
when he was a 19-year-old
sophomore for the Citadel.
In an amazing twist of fate,
for years one of The Miami
Project's leading contributors
has been Buffalo Bills owner
Ralph Wilson. Contributing
millions of dollars of his own
money, the very research that
Wilson helped support will
likely allow one of his own,
Kevin Everett, to walk again.
Dr. Green, reported that
with a "high level of confi-
dence" he felt that Everett
would ultimately walk again,
based on his experience with
this injury, Dr. Cappuccino's
quick use of hypothermic
techniques, and the fact that

he was showing voluntary use
so early after the injury.

The Navy announces its intent to revise the previously released Draft
OEIS/EIS assessing potential environmental impacts of establishing an
undersea warfare training range (USWTR) off the eastern coast of the
United States for anti-submarine warfare (,SW) training. Based on
comments received from federal agencies, state agencies, and members
of the public, the Navy determined that a new draft OEIS/EIS should
be prepared, incorporating suggestions received during the public
review and comment period. The changes contemplated involve
addition of an alternative and modification of the methodology used to
analyze behavioral impacts on marine mammals.
Recognizing the continued importance of public input, the Navy is also
reopening the scoping process and invites you to submit any comments
relevant to the scope of issues to be addressed in the revised DOEIS/
EIS. Scoping comments previously submitted following publication of
the 1996 NOI are still valid and will be considered. All comments
received during the October 2005 DOEIS/EIS public review and
comment period will also be considered during this scoping process
and should not be resubmitted. Please submit any new comments by
October 22, 2007, to ensure consideration.

Move your body!

Beating intimidation at the gym

ou have proudly made it
to the gym. You've kept
the motivation up
throughout the day long
enough to don your spandex
and are now seated on a
bench ready to start your first
set of bicep curls. Just as you
are trying to remember
whether your palms are sup-
posed to face up or down, a
huge, burly guy in a cut-up t-
shirt slings his dumbbells onto
the floor with a THUMP and
grunts so loudly you jump.
You look down at your five-
pound dumbbells, quickly
decide that you don't belong
there, and retreat to the ellip-
tical machine to do 20 min-
utes of cardio, feeling stupid
that you gave up so easily.
In my experience working
with people new to fitness,
intimidation at the gym is a
huge obstacle to overcome
because it stops people from
doing any resistance training.
To many people gyms are not
somewhere where they feel
like they belong. That, com-
pounded with the fact that
many first-time weight train-
ers are never quite sure if they
look stupid to the seasoned
gym attendees, is a good way
to stop motivation in it's
Well I'm here to tell you
that most of these feelings are
way more intense than need
be. Most people at the gym
couldn't care less what other
people are doing- they are
there for their own needs.
Keep in mind that just
because they've been working
out longer than you doesn't
mean that they have some
unwritten right to use a gym
more than you do. If you feel
like people stare at you in the
mirrors, it's more likely that
they are bored between sets
then critiquing your workout
in their head. In fact, your
eyes probably wander when
you are resting, too. It also
helps to remember that every-
one in the gym was a begin-
ner at some point of their lift-
ing career.
Despite knowing all of that,
the gym can still seem a bit
scary. Here are a few tips to


squelch uneasy feelings:
1. Have a plan: This is the
best way to avoid feeling awk-
ward. Research exercises
before you go and write down
a detailed workout plan to fol-
low during your time in the
gym. Stick to it no matter
what. Scope out where all the
equipment is located so you
are not searching around aim-
lessly for a medicine ball or an
attachment. You can even
practice the movements of the
exercises before you go. to the
gym so you are sure of them
once you get there. Carrying a
pad of paper doesn't immedi-
ately single you out as a new-
bie- many people who have
worked out for years still write
things down as they go in
order to stay focused.
Keep moving and work

out hard: If you never stop
moving, you won't give your-
self enough time to allow
-intimidation to win. This also
means that you will get a great
cardio workout while you're
lifting weights. Plan to do cir-
cuits of four or five exercises
back-to-back with no rest in
Be in your own world: The
explosion of MP3 players has
turned the gym. into a very
individual experience. The
majority of people working
out are wearing them now.
Not only will music pump you
up when you are lifting, it will
distract your attention from
everyone else enough to
ignore them. Just don't sing
along out loud.
Tell people you are train-
ing for something: Even peo-
ple that have been weight
training for years can be
intimidated of trying newer, ,
non-traditional exercises that
may be different from what
everyone else is doing. If you
are stuck in the "bench-press
groove" make up something
to tell people you're training
for. For some reason, people
generally don't question it
when athletes do less-than-
normal things to train. So if it
makes you feel better, tell peo-
ple you are an athlete.
Ask others: If you don't feel
sure if you have the form right
on an exercise, ask. Most peo-
ple in the gym love to give

others advice and are very
friendly. This is a good prac-
tice to establish because not
only learn the exer-
cise, you will feel more com,
fortable next time you are
exercising beside that person.
Who knows, you might even
end up with a quality workout
partner somewhere down the
Attend a class or hire a
professional: Lastly, recruit
the help of someone who will
make sure you are doing
things right. This could mean
attending some of the resist-
ance-training group classes or
hiring a trainer. For many, the
peace of mind that comes
with having professional help
is all they need to stay moti-
Just remember, if you find
yourself on the cardio
machines every time you
wanted to weight train, you
are only hurting yourself.
Putting yourself out there can
be daunting at first, but if you
are consistent about attending
the gym, the newness won't
last long and you will be well
on your way to reaching your
fitness goals.

if I wanted to try surfing. I got on that

SHey, N\ name is Ljawton Delay and I'm an 11 year old going into mid-

with m\ best friend. I rode on a foam board with four other kids at the
camp. I wasn't very good, but i realized how enjoyable sufring really is. Just t
the experience of riding the waves is fun. That was my best surfing trip.

Sby all of us. The recent
rains decreased the humidity,
and turned a few of my.nasty-
looking plants into luxurious
I can feel a very slight dif-
ference in'the temperatures,
and by the beginning of
October we should all feel
some degree of fall in the air.
Many of you will notice
plants in other people's yards
that are real knockouts now,
ones that have been there all
along, but only now do they
really come alive to the view-
er's eye.
Today we'll talk about what
some of these plants are and
how they can bring a touch
of fall to yourdandscape.
Recently, I took on the task
of filling four large pots at an
elementary school which is
in a very disadvantaged area
of Jacksonville.
The teachers, as well as the
kids, always comment on the
pretty colors, and it makes
me feel good to gi\e some-
thing to them. The school is
due to close next fall, and it
is a pity since it one of the
very few real, neighborhood
schools left in Jacksonville.
The mission was more

important to me because of
this. I needed something easy
and quick. I decided to only
stick with three plants, all the
same, in each container.
I have to admit that the
pots look awfully good. I had
a tight budget, so used only
1 gallon-sized plant, and then
the rest of the plants were
either in six packs, or 4- or 6-
inch pots. For the back-
ground plant, I selected bur-
gundy Fountain Grass, look-
ing for any with tassles ready
to open.
The middle-sized plant was
an Ixora, actually a shrub
with deep green foliage and
flower clusters that come in

deep orange, yellow or pink.
The plant is not freeze toler-
ant, but for the next few
months, it will do nicely and
bring a lot of color to the
pots. I bought the deep
orange and it looks great
against the burgundy grass.
The third plant, the lowest
in size and therefore the
drooping one, was Portulaca,
also called Moss Rose. This
one comes in a large range of
colors, and those I could buy
for about 80 cents apiece, so
each pot had at least three

maintenance; using a potting
mix with fertilizer and mois-
ture control pellets was a
necessity. Doing this project
got me in the mood for fall, a
season I really like.
A few of the natives that I
love for their color in the fall
are Beauty Berry, Firebush,
Goldenrod, and Milkweed. I
know you are saying, "Who
would ever want to plant

'Natural Visions' opens

at Stellers Gallery Annex

Stellers Gallery Annex in
Neptune Beach will host the
opening exhibit of fine art
painters Suzanne Magee and
John Bunker on today from 6
p.m. to 9 p.m.
"Natural ViSions," which
will run through Friday, Oct.
19, features Magee's fine
watercolors and Bunker's
mixed media paintings.
The painters will display an
array of tropical
flower and
fauna, along
with abstracts
and macros of
plants, flowers,
and exotic fish .
such as the Koi,
along with many
new and familiar
natural themes.
According to
gallery owner Hillary Tuttle of
Stellers, the exhibit will fea-
ture a retrospective and new
works by Bunker, who has
been a professional artist for
35 years.
His abstracted and represen-
tational pieces will include a
range of work from very fine
detail, to broad brush strokes
and palette knife techniques.
Bunker's extensive and var-
ied local and national muse-
um career includes being the,
long-term associate director
and interim director of the
Jacksonville Art Museum and
the director of the Cummer
Museum of Art & Gardens.

Bunker recently received the
. 2007 Individual Art Award
from the Cultural Council of
Greater Jacksonville for his
four decades of volunteer serv-
ice to the community.
He is a graduate of both the
Smithsonian Institute's
Fundamentals of museum
Management and the J.P.
Getty's Museum Management
SInstitute at the University of
California at Berkeley.
Bunker is the
president of the
Riverside Fine
Arts Association
Concert Series
Committee and
the board of the
JIA Arts
serving as cura-
tor. A graduate of Florida State
University, he also holds an
advanced degree form
Vanderbilt University-
Peabody College. His art works
are included in numerous
museum, corporate, public
and private collections in the
U.S. and abroad.
Magee's work begins with a
sturdy piece of blank watercol-
or paper as she interprets the
elegance of botanical-life

'The King of Kong' is

'Rocky' of video games

en minutes into "The
King of Kong," you'll ask
yourself, "Why am I
watching a documentary
about nerdy gamers?"
By movie's end, you'll real-
ize you're watching the
"Rocky" of video games.
Many peripheral characters
inhabit this movie, but there
are only three that stick in the
mind. One of them is the
video game Donkey Kong,
familiar to countless time-
wasters of the 1980s. In it, a
gorilla hurls countless barrels
at the game's "player," i.e., the
guy who tries to rescue a
woman Kong has kidnapped.
Billy Mitchell has made his
life's reputation from Donkey
Kong. He posted a huge Kong
score that was considered
unassailable for nearly a quar-
ter-century. The movie dis-
plays Mitchell as an arrogant
narcissist. Mitchell says that as


hugely gifted as he has proven
to be, there must be some
poor schnook who got the
short end of life's stick.
Then we meet that very per-
son. Steve Wiebe has tried to
do many things (rock-band

them as trash plants and
would pull them out."
I might agree with you for'
all seasons of the year except
for fall. At that time, they
come into their glory. The
Goldenrod with its deep gold-
en yellow plumes, is always
ready to be cut for fall-
arrangements. Milkweed, with
its deep orange blossoms that
butterflies absolutely love,
especially the Monarch, alone
looks like it belongs in the fall
landscape due to its deep
orange color.
Beauty Berry is absolutely
one of my very favorites. At
this time of year you'll notice
the plant, not for its leaves or
flowers, but for the clusters of
deep purple berries found on
its branches.
It comes in a white variety
as well as the purple, but I
love the purple. The berries
themselves are unique and
can be eaten, often made into
jelly, and they dry naturally if
brought indoors and added to
an arrangement.
If you don't bump into the
container to stir the berries
into falling, they will stay
intact and in color for many
weeks. They look spectacular
with many of the ornamental
grasses now coming to the
nursery markets.
The other native that I love
is a happy plant no matter
what the weather, but it
blooms in the fall with bright
red, tubular flowers which
attract what Hummingbirds,
because they love red and
they also love tubes to stick
their long beaks into. The

plant just sits underneath a
pile of ginger leaves and mis-
cellaneous other stuff I never
seem to cull out, but when it
decides to break forth, it
always does so, and it is so
pretty, lasting a long time.
With its award-winning,
unique red flowers. All of
these native plants are also
salt tolerant, and since many
are becoming more popular,
most of our nurseries now sell
I have a few favorites that
are not considered natives,
but they sure have become
staples in my gardens. They
are Shrimp Plant, Angel
Trumpet, Golden Dewdrop,
Cuphea or Candy Corn Plant.
Thrysallis is my star.
I absolutely have fallen in
love with Thrysallis, a plant I
purchased in a gallon-sized
pot a few years ago and just
dug it in. I did it as an experi-
ment because no one knew
anything about it.
This plant just thrives in the
sun of my backyard and is
loaded from start to finish
with bright yellow, small clus-
ters of flowers. This year I
pruned it in the spring, not
knowing how to do it, so I
just reshaped it a tad, and it is
going gangbusters. It happens
to be next to the red firebush,
close to my Vitex which
blooms in early summer with
purple plumes, but since the
Thrysallis is always in bloom,
it looks handsome with any-
thing that happens to be in
I cannot find anything
about its salt tolerance, but I
think it would prosper just

about anywhere.except right
on the ocean. Could be it will
even take those winds and salt
spray let me know.
The Shrimp plant and Angel
Trumpet plant are not new to
you, but at this time of year,
they look spectacular and take
up a lot of otherwise empty
space. My Angel Trumpets are
peachy in color, the shrimp
plant is a deep coral/pale red,
though it is available in many.
colors, and the Golden
Dewdrop I also have is loaded
with purple plumes that show
a bit of yellow.
Cuphea is a weird one, and
is very unusual in the fall
when its blooms are on long
spikes, looking just like yellow
and orange candy corn.
It is a pain because it
becomes invasive, like that
Mexican Petunia (ruellia), but
if you can keep it within
bounds, it is a neat one to
have. None of these plants
require anything from me,
except some pruning in the
spring, and by now, they've
become shrublike in size so
take up most of my garden's
space. I can plant annuals
around them if I want to, but
I don't need to bother. A fresh
supply of mulch enhances
their color, and marks off one
more garden chore that needs
to be done in the fall anyway.
There are many other plants
that take up mass and there-
fore would be called shrublike
to me, ones with coppery
foliage like the Copper
Begonia, the many interesting
grasses that provide a bur-
gundy tone if planted in
masses, some sages that come

back to life in the cooler
nights, heliconias of which
bird-of-paradise is one (very
hard to grow here because of
the freeze protection it needs),
but a stunning beauty for fall
Pyracantha, a true shrub
with enormous clumps of
berries ranging from pale
orange to deep red, Nandina,
another true shrub with col-
ored fall foliage and nice red
berries, some gingers, and
many more that I know I've
left out.
My desire was to show you
how we can-have nice fall
color in our gardens without
much effort because we can
use plants that take up space
and provide deep fall tones.

porating fresh, bold colors forming a modern twist on a tradi-
tional subject.
Known for her botanical representations, Magee's collection
of subjects revolve around the study and anatomy of vegetation,
botanicals and tropical fish.
Washes of watercolor or mixed media collectively form an
intentional, fluid-like painting technique to achieve the appear-
ance of the less-than-paper-thin, translucency in a variety of
vivid colors.

Magee began painting at an early age. While maintaining her
interest in art, she also pursued a nursing education at the ,
University of Pennsylvania. After graduation she resumed her
art education by attending the University of Miami, the
Printmaking Studio in New Haven, Conn., Jacksonville
University, and the University of North Florida, where she grad-
uated summa cum laude with a bachelor of fine arts degree.
Magee currently resides in North Florida, where she works
professionally and has exhibited in a number of juried group

Her work has been exhibited at The Vassar Design Showhouse

Music mangled in 'Across the Universe'

Call me overly reverent
if you must. But the
music of The Beatles
means a great deal to several
generations of listeners, and
I am sad and angry to see it
so thoroughly mangled in
"Across the Universe."
The movie's bald literal-
ness and its wounded-heart-

enough to make a Beatles
faifi"r~tC:' All6f the charac-'
ters are named after Beatles
songs as a shorthand to
bring in the music. For
example, one girl is named
Prudence, so that her friends
can coax her out of her
room by singing, "Dear
Prudence, won't you come
out to play?"
The movie's imagery
makes countless allusions to
Beatles films, videos, and
icons (the Apple logo, John
and Yoko in the buff, etc.).
There's even an eye-rolling
moment where a character
asks how a stranger got in
the room, and the reply
comes: "She came in

I guess this is all meant to
pat the loyal Beatles fan on
the back for catching the ref-
erences. But it only made me
think of The Bee Gees, 1978

Beatles album "Sgt. Pepper."

obsessiveness, there's one
thing he gets right. He beats
Billy's Kong record and records
it on videotape as evidence.
But the gaming community
(and, most vocally, Billy) will
consider Steve legit only if he
beats Billy's score in front of
an audience. So Steve travels
across the country twice to do
just that. Conversely,,Billy gets

for Steve Wiebe as much as
I've ever rooted for anyone in
a movie. Does having the all-
time highest Donkey Kong

history? Probably not. But if it
would cut Steve a hard-earned
break just once in his life,
then it would mean quite a

"The King of Kong" is about
the relevance, not of video
games, but of the human spir-
it. I'm not sure just what this
says about me, but this is one
of my favorite movies of the

"Universe" falls into the ear-

with many of the same
songs, yet).
I've not yet mentioned the
movie's characters, who
barely exist anyway. There's
Jude (Jim Sturgess), a
Liverpool dock worker who
travels to New York and gets
caught up in the 1960s revo-
lution. The girl he falls for,
though she doesn't live in
the sky with diamonds, is
named Lucy (Evan Rachel
Wood, the snotty teenager
from "thirteen"). There's

A wine and cheese tasting at Fleet Landing drew many visitors, below
and right, as the retirement community recently welcomed the Beaches
community to preview its new model home in The Palms, designed by
interior designer Judith Sisler Johnston. More than 200 people gathered
at the September 13 event, which was free and open to the public.
Highlights included a dessert tent featuring Fleet Landing Chef Dennis
Corcoran's specialty, bananas foster. Personal tours of the model home
and samplings of a variety of wines and cheeses from around the world
rounded out the event. The Palms is Fleet Landing's newest neighbor-
hood of 39 villas, large estate homes and future community center.

In some regions,

merlot is most

noble grape

A grape vari-
ety's success
can turn on
a dime or a
movie. Take, for
instance, merlot. -
It was pilloried in
the 2004 movie ,'
"Sideways" when
Miles refused to
drink any more
merlot during his
miserable tour of
California winer-
ies. TOM M
Miles preferred and PAT
pinot noir and 'The V
the rest is histo-
ry: pinot noir
sales skyrocketed
while merlot sales sagged.
It always has been a strug-
gle for merlot because the
grape variety is seen as
blending grape popularized
in the '80s for its soft and
abundant fruit. American
producers don't help its
image when they make thin
and weedy merlots for the
mass audience.
It isn't that way every-
where merlot is planted. In
Pomerol merlot is the most
noble grape. Wines like
Petrus one of the most
revered wines in the world -
show that merlot can be as
serious as cabernet sauvi-
gnon. And in this country,
Washington state has been
making consistently solid
merlot for decades.
No one should feel
ashamed to order merlot in a
restaurant, the movie
notwithstanding. You just
need to find the serious pro-
ducers and be willing to
spend a bit more for your
average wine.
Bad merlot is often vegetal,
thin and overly ripe. In this
condition, it is isn't even
good enough to sip. Match it
with food and you'll be even
more disappointed. But a
good merlot has body, com-
plex flavors like black cher-
ries, chocolate and spice. It
has depth, fine tannins and
long finish products of
caring producers. Don't give
up on it.
Here are a few recent mer-
lots we tasted and liked:
Canoe Ridge Estate
Merlot 2004 ($20). Using
grapes grown in its Horse
Heaven Hills vineyard, Canoe
Ridge of Washington state
makes an outstanding, big
and luscious merlot. Lots of
black cherries punctuated by
leather and herbs. A medi-
um-bodied wine to go with
pork, lamb and game.
Hogue Reserve Merlot
2003 ($30). We loved this
full-bodied, richly textured
merlot from Washington
state. It has soft mouthfeel
and ripe raspberry flavors
with a touch of mint. Elegant
wine to serve with filet
St. Clements Napa Valley
Merlot 2003 ($30). Blueberry
notes make this an interest-
ing merlot that has been
blended with 20 percent
cabernet sauvignon-.
Additional flavors include
cola, licorice and chocolate.
Rich mouthfeel.
Etude Napa.Valley Merlot


2003 ($50).

sweet cherry
flavors with
and ripe tan-
nins to give it
good complex-
ity and length.

2004 ($25).
LROUART Cigar box and
ICK DARR berry nose
ne Guys' with juicy
blackberry and
ripe plum fla-
vors. Apparent
oak and silky mouthfeel.
Blended with cabernet sauvi-
gnon, malbec and petite ver-.
Clos du Val Merlot 2004
($26). Generous dark fruit
flavors with cinnamon and
allspice notes and a hint of
herbs. Medium body.
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars
Napa Valley Merlot 2004
($42). Rich cherry flavors
with notes of raspberries and
red currants. Aromas include
cigar box and anise. Silky
tannins make is a very
smooth textured wine.
Chateau Ste. Michelle
Columbia Valley Merlot
2004 ($18). Soft and drink-
able merlot with black cher-
ries and licorice notes. Silky
tannins and medium body.
Sterling Vintner's
Collection Merlot 2004
($13). Blended with 12 per-
cent cabernet sauvignon, this
is a round and simple merlot
with soft blackberry notes
and sweet vanillin oak.
Dry Creek Vineyard
Merlot Dry Creek Valley
2004 ($19). Amazingly com-
plex merlot for the price
that's blended with a little
cabernet sauvignon and
cabernet franc. Nose of black
cherries scented with cinna-
mon and herbs. Lush and
complete in the mouth with
cherry and cassis flavors and
a long finish.
Simi Sonoma County
Merlot 1004 ($20). Bright
fruit reminiscent of cherries
and cranberries. Soft mouth-
feel and hints of cedar and
mocha. Blended with a bit of
malbec and cabernet sauvi-
gnon for the structure.
Buena Vista Carneros
Merlot 2003 ($21). Grown in
a challenging appellation for
merlot, the Buena Vista has
coffee and cassis aromas and
simple black cherry flavors.
Gundlach Bundschu
Rhinefarm Vineyard Merlot
2003 ($29). Cranberry and
allspice aromas lead off a
generously flavored wine
redolent of currants and
Franciscan Sauvage 2005
($35). From one of the most
reliable and value producers
in Napa Valley, Franciscan
continues to roll out some
beauties. This chardonnay
from Carneros is wild yeast
fermented and rich in pear
and peach flavors. Soft
mouthfeel and long finish
make for a very enjoyable

( Your Horosope

ARIES iNlarch 21 to April 191 You're of two
minds this week where finances are con-
cerned. Take your time. You don't have to
make any decisions right awa\.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You make
some progress this week at work. However, it
will be of a modest nature. Thus, at the end of
the week, you'll find yourself with some
unfinished projects to be tackled at another
time. -- --
GEMINI (May 21 toJune 20, As tempting as
it is, this isn't the week to slack off. Shake off
that impulse to procrastinate and roll up your
sleeves. There's much to be done.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's not a good
sign when you're thinking about the weekend
early in the week. It will come soon enough.
Instead, concentrate on tasks at hand
LEO (July 23 to August 22) You're wise to
keep your plans to yourself for now Desplte
prying by an inquisitive co-worker, you're
able to do just that. Later in the week, domes-
tic interests are highlighted.
VIRGO lAugust 23 to September 221 You're
in the mood to indulge yourself this week.
Feel free to go on a shopping spree. However,
do be sure you're getting the best deals for
your money.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) People
naturally turn to you for advice. However,
this time, you're not sure what to tell a close
friend. Be honest about this, and don't just

say something for the sake of saying it.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 211 You
could be miffed that certain friends haven't
contacted you in a while. Go ahead. Pick up
the phone and take the initiative; you'll be
glad you did.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
21 Your attention is mostly taken up with
family matters this week. Fortunately, noth-
ing happens on the workfront that requires
l_ ng hours. Thus, you can devote yourself to
-olving domestic problems.
CAPRICORN iDecember 22 to January 191
This isn't the week to be entertaining guests.
You need to work closely with a colleague on
getting projects done at work. This weekend,
be on the lookout for new opportunities.
AQUARIUS ilanuary 20 to February 181 If
possible, it's a good idea to work from home
this week. You'll be able to get a lot more done
that way without distractions. Later in the
week, you find your goals are within your
PISCES iFebruary 19 to March 20) This isn't
the time to couch your words with a loved
one. Your best approach is to be direct.
Remember, though, that doesn't mean you

Brass: Today at 7:30pm

Cont. from B-l
The American Brass
Quintet is in residence at The
Julliard School, where they
teach brass chamber music
and where Mase is chair of
the Brass Department.
Mase said the group often
gives the kind of instructive
mini-concerts that all
Jacksonville Beach 4th and
5th graders heard Wednesday.
"This school was a great
school," he said. "They were
well prepared."
Four classes of 4th graders
and two classes of 5th graders
occupied the floor of the
Jacksonville Beach
Elementary School library for
the 40-minute mini-concert
that ended about noon.
An equal number heard a
similar concert earlier in the
day, and the quintet was to
visit Mayport Elementary
School on Thursday and give
another concert for students
today at the church.
At Wednesday's session,
Mase talked about music of
the Civil War, telling the
youngsters that brass instru-
ments could be toted around
by soldiers with less chance
of damage than with, say, a
The musicians demonstrat-
ed their instruments individ-
ually, then as a group.
After playing mostly 19th
century pieces, the group
turned to an unusual piece
from the 1970s which drew a
range of responses from the
nall young audience.
lby When they finished, Rojak
by asked how many of the audi-
ence liked the piece. Most
==== hands shot up.
When musicians on two

e I Look Whl

different instruments played
the same note, one at a time,
Mase asked how to describe
the difference between one
and the other.
"Lower" was one guess.
"Higher," was another. But
one boy gave the term used
by musicians: "Darker."
One student wanted to
know if the French horn is
really from France.
"I think they call it the
French horn because the
French learned to play it real-
ly, really well in the 1800s,"
said the quintet's horn play-
er, David Wakefield.-
When an audience member
asked, "Can any of you play
a Star Wars note?" one musi-
cian responded with eight
notes that were veryfamiliar,
but not the ones requested.
"That's Star Trek," many
voices announced in unison.
Then a trombone blared
out 16 notes that brought
laughter and nodding of

I've had more birthdays than
I care to remember, but few
parties. While growing up
in Germany during World War
II, our life was filled with con-
stant worries. My dad was in
the Army, mom had little
money, and food was rationed.
Early in 1945, when I was
eight, my father became a casu-
alty of the war. There was no
joy nor. reason to celebrate.
But never having had a party, I
didn't feel deprived because
one does not miss what one
never experienced. Not until I
emigrated to America when I
was 18 did I learn how much
fun it was to give or attend a
The most enjoyable birthday
party I ever had was last sum-
mer when I turned 70. My
immediate and extended fami-
ly and several friends, 22 peo-
ple in all, traveled to the small
fishing village of Cedar Key,
Florida, to celebrate the seven
decades of my life.
Cedar Key is not a hive of
social activities but a place to
unwind and relax. We stayed
at Old Fenimore Mill which
offered well-furnished condos
that overlook the Gulf coast
and thriving marsh land.
During the day we swam or
played ball in the pool, sat on
the dock hoping to catch fish,
or took leisurely strolls
through the few gift shops in
At dinner time we'feasted.
Not just one, but three days we
partied. Everybody had pre-
pared some fabulous specialties
and we gorged ourselves on
tasty Armenian food, succulent
grilled fish, and lots of cham-
pagne. I even received three
birthday cakes, a different one
each night. By the time we left
Cedar Key, we were heavier,
but happy.
By contrast, this year, my
spouse and I chose to celebrate
my birthday and our 48th wed-
ding anniversary by cruising to
the Caribbean, just the two of
us. Driving to Ft. Lauderdale's
port, we made a stopover at
Hobe Sound and spent three
days with good friends, Lena
and Stan. Having met more
than 30 years ago when we
worked in North Africa, we
share many unforgettable
experiences and reminisce
whenever we get together.


My birthday fell on the
Friday we were at our friends'
home. In the morning, Stan
prepared waffles with blueber-
ries, strawberries, and whipped
cream' and served them on
lovely terrace, next to the
pool. Out came Lena, our 73-
year old hostess, barefoot and
nothing but a short, typical
Florida T-shirt. She carried her
saxophone which she had
learned to play in her early six-
ties and serenaded me with.
"Happy Birthday." What a
That evening we went for
dinner to Jetty's in Jupiter, a
well-known restaurant at the
Intracoastal Waterway, across
from the lighthouse on Jupiter
Island. The hostess led us to a
table at the edge of a huge
deck, apart from other tables
that were crowded next to each
other. As the waiter took our
order, he mentioned that we
were sitting at the Burt
Reynolds table.
"THE Burt Reynolds?" I
asked. "Absolutely. He knows
the owner and occasionally
comes here and that's where he
Wow! Sitting sat B.R.'s table,
possibly in his chair, made me
feel special. My mind drifted
to my younger days when I was
totally enamored by his good
looks, especially his thick,
black mustache. He was just
soooo sexy. Wait till I tell my
kids, I thought.
While awaiting dinner, I
decided to take a few photos of
our friends by the water with a
luxury yacht docked nearby

and the lighthouse in the back-
ground. A young woman also
took pictures of two gentlemen
who were with her. I immedi-
ately offered to photograph the
three of them, and she accept-
ed. One of the men returned
the favor and took pictures of
the four of us. We thanked
each other and returned to our
respective tables.
We thoroughly enjoyed our
dinners of Chilean bass, sword-
fish, and shrimp with marinat-
ed beef tips, accompanied by
fine wine and for me, a split of
bubbly. A to-die-for rich
chocolate dessert followed.
Sated, we were ready to leave,
Our waiter presented the bill
and took my husband's credit
card. After he left, I saw him
talking to another waiter who
pointed in our direction. Was
there something wrong with
our credit? I wondered.
Just then the other waiter
approached our. table and
asked if we would like another
bottle of tie same white wine,
"Why?" asked my husband
because he had just paid the
bill. "Well, the gentleman in
the green shirt wants to buy
you a bottle," he said, pointing
to the table where the three
young people whose picture I
had taken earlier sat.
We were stunned. What a
generous gesture! We declined,
but said we truly appreciated
his offer. The waiter tried to
change our mind so my hus-
band suggested that if the
other guest
insisted, he could order me
another split of champagne.
"That's already done," the
waiter replied.
My husband and I went and
thanked the gentleman for this
unexpected gift. My only
regret was that I never asked
his name.
Night had fallen and a
strong breeze made the tem-
perature more pleasant and so -
we lingered at our famous
table, enjoying the tranquility
of the scene while I savored my
champagne. Though it wasn't
a party, I knew I would never
forget the Burt Reynolds table,
the Jupiter Lighthouse, and the
kindness of a total stranger
who made my 71st birthday so

ed, designers

ters are busy
putting out
new ideas for

bold state-
ments, such
as black and
white and the soothing colors
of nature. According to Rohm
and Haas Paint Quality
Institute paint expert,
Deborah Zimmer, the color
dictum could be anythingg
"Consumers' increasing
color confidence and personal
style makes any color fashion-
able for 2008," Zimmer says.
"From glass-like blues, botani-
cal greens, dramatic black and
white, and whisper-soft pink,
color directions will drive
towards individual self-expres-
sion, glamorous living experi-
ences or an increasing aware-
ness of important environ-
mental causes."
Zimmer does have three
particular favorites, though,
and they are green, metallic
and crewel colors.
Go green
Like the environmental
movement, green color keeps
building momentum.
Mixtures of green shades
together will create a fresh
environment. Zimmer even go
so far as to call green the new
neutral. Greens are especially
good in kitchens, bathrooms
and living areas, according to
Zimmer. Greens reflect the
continued move in the envi-
ronment toward greater
awareness and incorporating

To freshen up your green
room, incorporate deeper and
lighter shades of green togeth-
er: If all that green is over-
whelming, soften the tone
with shades of brown, tan,
and clear blue or aqua.

Try metal-

contrast of last

and crystal.
Key to the relief of the stark
contrast in a black and white
*room is the shine and sheen
.that metallic colors bring.
Paint a ceiling gold or silver
for an interesting twist.
Another key to high-eon--
trast? High texture. Texture is
a decorator's secret A nubby
pillow, a cut pile carpet.and
other highly textural finishes
bring tactile and visual inter-
est to the room.
Zimmer recommends these
colors for the master bedroom
and living room because these
rooms do best with the for-
mality and sophistication of
metallic colors. A coat of
white paint on the walls,
some black shades on crystal
lamps and silver rimmed mir-
rors could create a cool, ele-
gant bedroom with high style.
Get cozy
The coming year will also
see more vibrancy in colors
that Zimmer defines as crewel
colors. These colors are the
deep cranberry and gold
found in your grandmother's
afghan. It could be called
"cruel" colors because getting
that color of cranberry just
right might test your paint
mixer's professional abilities.
The crewel colors are the
warm colors of fall, such as
orange, coffee brown, cranber-
ry red and rich ochre. ''' ".-'-
The colors Zimmer says are
a reflection of home and
home crafts. Bring these into
the kitchen and family room "
with throws, woven textured
throw pillows and perhaps a
rug. In the kitchen, add tow-
els, napkins and placemats in

intense, they should be used

options for accent walls,
