Palms work

The previous building
inspector of Atlantic Beach
is concerned about the for-
mer site of the Palms apart-
ments, he told the city offi-
cials this week.
Don Ford, who is the
current building inspector
for the city of Neptune
Beach, told Commissioners
that he is "disturbed" that.
the city has allowed the site
to remain in a partially
demolished state.
"It's really disturbing
when you come over that
bridge every day and that's
your first view of Atlantic
Beach," he said. The for-
mer apartments are located
off of Mayport Road near
the city's entrance.
Ford said he condemned
the building approximately
four years ago and "those
laws are still on the books."
The city has been work-
ing on an ordinance that
would address ,abandoned
construction projects,
which was sparked by the
Palms property.
City Attorney Alan
Jensen explained that
although the ordinance
would help solve similar
situations in the future, it
would not give the city the
authority to address the
issue at the former Palms
apartments, which have
been in a state of partial
demolition for more than a
year and have received
multiple citizen com-
He also said that Ford is
correct that the buildings
were condemned, but since
the property owner took
some action, such as put-
ting up a fence around the
property, it put the proper-
ty in a status "not directly
addressed in our ordi-
Mayor Johi' Meserve, said
that he wants staff to fur-
ther research options and
also talk td Ford about his
interpretation of the code.
The Commission
deferred the issue to the
next meeting to gather
more information.

Sink offers local $
info on website
In an effort to educate
Floridians about their own
local government income and
spending, Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink has
announced the launch of
"Your Local Government
Dollars and Cents," which can
be found on the Web site,
"Your Local Government
Dollars and Cents" is a new
tool that provides Floridians
easy access to their local gov-
ernment's revenues and expen-
With greater information
about the finances of Florida's
local governments and
Tuesday's passage of the prop-
erty tax amendment, CFO Sink
is encouraging Floridians to
work with their local govern-
ments in determining local
priorities and ways to stream-
line services.
"I'm launching 'Your Local
Government Dollars and
Cents' to help Floridians get
educated and more engaged in
local government spending,"
said CFO Sink, who oversees
the Department of Financial
Services (DFS). "I encourage
every Floridian to use this tool
and get more involved in how
their local tax dollars are
spent. With governments

actively cutting their budgets,
it is essential that Floridians
make it clear what their priori-
ties are for their communities."
At "Your Local Government
Dollars and Cents," Floridians
can search by city, county or
special district for a variety of
revenue information, includ-
ing: ad valorem taxes, grants,
fees, fines and more. They can
also look up their local govern-
ment's expenditure informa-
tion and electronic data is

8:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 17,
organizers said.
The race starts and ends at
the Mayo Clinic campus on
San Pablo Road and the
course winds through the
three Beaches communities
with two and a half miles on
the beach.
Deegan and Teresa Price of
the Jacksonville Office of
Special Events. addressed the
concerns of residents and
business owners along the
route Wednesday at the
Jacksonville Beach City Hall.
"Anything we can do to
make life easier on this one
day," said Deegan said. "We
are going to inconvenience
you just a little bit so we are
happy to do it."
Volunteers will be going
door-to-door to address any
concerns of those positioned
along the route. They will
also be distributing signs and
buttons to anyone wishing to
show support.
The congregation of the
Neptune Baptist Church have
all signed on to wear pink
and serve as a cheering sec-
tion for passing runners.
"This is a great time to get
together with neighbors and
make signs, noisemakers, get
cowbells, anything you can
do to cheer these runners
on," Price said.
Price, who is the special
even.ts..coordinator fporthe
city of Jacksonville and is
helping produce the
marathon, said the economy
both at the Beaches and
"across the ditch" will realize
a boom from the event.
"The hotels are full.
Businesses that may not be
open on Sundays are opening
to extend the hospitality to
the visitors," Deegan said.
"We have received so much
wonderful support. The com-
munity has been incredible.
We have been so well-
received at everything we are
doing," Deegan said.
"From day one everyone
has asked 'what can we do?
How can we help?' This has
been a terrific experience and
I am so excited."
An avid runner herself,
Deegan said she started a run-
ning team with trainer and
Olympian Jeff Galloway to
participate in marathons.
"Finally I said 'this is okay
but why don't we start our
own marathon'?" she said.
"The money we raise will stay

- RACE, from A-1
Jacksonville Beach Police Cmdr. GenePaul
Smith urged patience and cooperation from resi-
dents and business owners affected by the street
closures. He assured them that the agencies would
be working closely to minimize any disruptions.
"We have a strong working relationship. We
just wrapped up the air show and we've done the
SBlues Fest and now we are back here again," Smith
said of the combined efforts of the Beaches police
departments and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office.
"We believe we have a good plan in place but
we are here for your input." Smith said, adding
the safety of the spectators and race participants
is key.
Traffic along the 26.2 mile course will be inter-
rupted as thousands of runners travel across the
Butler Boulevard. bridge and into the Beaches.
"There is going to be some inconvenience but
personally I don't think it is going to be as bad as
the air show," Smith said. "On a Sunday in
February we don't expect a crush of traffic."
A total of 178 officers 110 from Jacksonville
Sheriffs Office and 45 Beaches officers will be
stationed along the course.
Once the runners cross JTB, they will proceed
north on A1A. A northbound lane will be closed
to vehicular traffic. The inside lane will remain
open to allow access for motorists traveling north
from Ponte Vedra. The course continues to 37th
Avenue South to Ocean Drive South where offi-
Scers expect the most difficulty for residents during
the crush.
"The streets are a little narrow," Smith said.
"That is going to be the hardest to get in and out
when there are a lot of runners. There will be
times when people can't leave but it won't be
[continuously] from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m."
Officers will be positioned at 1st Street and 16th
Avenue South to help direct the runners to the
oceanfront where they will continue north on the

beach to Seagate Avenue in Neptune
"Neptune Beach has it easiest of all three
Beaches," Neptune Beach Assistant Police Chief
Tony Carrillo said. Racers will exit the sand, head-
ing north on Strand Street to Cherry Street and
continuing past the Neptune Baptist Church and
on into Atlantic Beach from 1st Street.
Atlantic Beach Police Sgt. David Cameron said
the course becomes confusing with all the twists
and turns in the Atlantic Beach portion.
The southbound lane of Seminole Road and
Selva Marina Drive will be closed to accommodate
the runners but officers will be available'to assist
residents coming and going from their homes.
"There are plenty of [alternate] routes [for
motorists] that are not inconvrenient to get out of
there," Cameron said.
Officers will also assist church goers with park-
ing and access concerns.
"There shouldn't be too many inconveniences,"
Carillo said.
Smith said runners in the full 26.2 mile
marathon will join with the half marathon partic-
ipants on the beach at the Jacksonville Beach pier,
continuing together to the finish at the Mayo
Clinic. Runners return to the streets at 16th
Avenue South and 1st Street and on to 25th
Avenue South then to 37th Avenue South where
both northbound lanes of A1A will be closed in
the afternoon to accommodate runners heading
in both directions.
"We don't think this is going to be a choke
point. There should be enough room," Smith said.
"The timing Should work out."
Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach police
will begin issuing prerecorded messages in the
next couple of weeks reminding residents and
businesses that street parking will not be permit-
ted during the race hours., Vehicles left overnight
in the course parameters will be relocated by
police at no cost to the owner.

Post office not looking hard enough





To the editor:
I would like to say that there
are plenty of places to put a
new Post Office in Jax Beach.
WJhy can't we have a brand
new "State of Art" Post Office.
How about the property
behind the Fire Department
on 4th st s. and 2nd ave S.
There is an empty lot there!
If Publix can find a place to
put in a new store, at the
beach, you people are not
looking hard enough. I bet if
you look real hard you could
find one place to put it before
a developer could find a place
to build another un sold
condo building!!! What do
you think????

Places like next to Joe's
Crab Shack. Next to Casa
Marina. Yes I know these
places are all "Ocean Front "
But this is the beach and right
now nothing is there anyway
sooo what.. It's a
"Government" thing A "FED-
right?? I'd rather pay taxes to
build a new Post Office then
have any more of my taxes go
to some other STUPID
Government wasteful stuff!!!
RIGHT........ So get on it and
start looking and Beach Blvd
Plaza ain't it.

Taxpayers take hit for Wal-Mart

To the editor:
I see that Neptune Beach
Councilman Harriet Pruette is
relieved that the terrible Wal-
Mart won't be building in her
town. She's happy for the hun-
dreds of people that wrote let-
ters and sent out emails wish-
ing for this to happen.
These folks now will have
the long row of vacant build-
ings where Scotties used to be
to enjoy looking at along with
the huge parking lot for the sea
birds to use.
' The council will no longer

have to worry about when the
$300,000 from Wal-Mart to
help cover "legal and associat-
ed costs," is coming. Now they
can work on figuring out how
to pass the "costs" on to us
I personally don't need any
more taxes but apparently
most of the folks Mrs. Pruette
refers to above will be glad to
pay for their "victory" over the
big-bad Wal-Mart.

How you spend the dash matters

t is a strange experience
getting to know someone
posthumously but this is
how I came to know Matthew
Everett Slate. Through sec-
ond hand stories and from the
eulogies given in his honor,
the cast of characters giving
speeches that day included a
classmate, a coworker, a
brother, and a family friend
and regardless of their differ-
ences in age they all shared a
very consistent message. "He
was an incredible friend."
They didn't mention his
grades, the multiple degrees,
his resume, or his failures;
rather, they spoke of a man
who loved so many souls that
at least 350 of them were in
attendance. Affable, clumsy,
kind, adventurous, dedicated.
These were just a few of the
adjectives sprinkled through-
out the day as they narrated
the life of a 30-year old man
who deeply loved his fiance,
,Nicole, and hergirls. He
remembered names and birth-
days and he fiercely loved his
Gators. Above all, they
emphasized his love.
Matt Slate was selfless-sign-
ing a form at some point in
his life indicating that if he
were to die his life could bring
life to others. Many folks our
age wouldn't have the insight
to do so yet but Matt became
an organ donor. In ways, it
appears he was beyond his
years and he was as likely to
have friends in their 30's as he


was to have chums nearly
double his age including an
older gentleman who stood to
give his speech. The man
read from a well circulated
poem called "The Dash" by
Linda Ellis that refers to the
dates left on one's gravestone.
-There are two numbers indi-
cating one's birth and death.
but it isn't those numbers that
count. It is the dash between
the two numbers signifying
life that are important. "For it
matters not, how much we
own; the cars... the house...
the cash. What matters is how
we live and love, and how we
spend our dash." At the close
of the poem, the author ends'
with these last lines. "So,
when your eulogy's being
read, with your life's actions to
rehash, would you be proud of
the things they say, about

how you spent your dash?"
I suppose in the traditional
sense I can't say Matt Slate.
and I were friends but by the
end of his memorial service I
was so deeply enamored by
this man of character, honor
and values who helped others
live that for the better part of
two weeks, I have thought of
him as my friend. His last
name makes me mindful that
regardless of past regrets or
future concerns each of us has
24 full hours to live. We all
have a clean Slate to truly live
put our dash. His life brought
meaning to a room full of
mourners and to a hospital
full of strangers. I can only
hope my life resume will read
as strong.
The University of Florida
has a catchy T.V. spot about
the strength of the Gator
Nation. In the commercials,
the graduates say they are off
to "go cure cancer," to "go start
a ,Fortune 500 company" and
to' "go' writ' the ne'xt 'geat
American novel." Gators'do
great things all over the world,
the ad purports. Matt Slate
was a Gator and he is a living
testimony to that ad. Matt
Slate helped save eight lives in
one day. Way to Go Gator!

More letters to the editor:

SHeb Scheidel was an incredible man who helped many

To the editor:
This is my tribute to a
Herbert H. Scheidel who died
this week.
Herb Scheidel was a most
notable and outstanding
man. What was remarkable
about him was his incredible
fluency in so many lan-
Herb spoke the language of
commerce and business. His
innovative approaches, risk
taking, market understand-
ing and plain old-fashioned
hard work brought him suc-
cess he would not have imag-
ined from his humble begin-
nings. His industry brought
English language learning
systems to Asian markets and
contributed to building
bridges that better communi-
cation always engenders. He
learned to call many places
home and to see common
bonds throughout the world.
Herb most profoundly
spoke the language of love.
Anyone who has ever been in
the presence of Miyuki and
Herb is well aware of their
love affair and affection.
Anyone who ever spent time
with Herb would hear about
his children and his dedicat-
ed love and hopes for them.
Later this would extend to
his beloved grandchildren
and the great joy they
brought him. Herb used the
milestones in his children's
lives as goals and wished
above all to see his children
happily married and begin-
ning lives of their.own
As an outgrowth of Herb's
love, he most passionately
understood the language of
need.. From his first experi-
ence sponsoring the Habitat
house for the Lee family, he
strongly resonated with the
motto of providing a hand-
up to people in need. He fun-

neled his energy into grow-
ing the Beaches Habitat affil-
iate. Herb concluded that
providing affordable housing
Wasn't enough to break the
cycle of poverty, but educa-
tion would be the long term
answer. Herb was not just an
idea man, he was a doer and
there's no time like the pres-
ent! Before long, Beaches
Habitat had an innovative
Prep Club for students from
Kindergarten to High School.
He approached first UNF and
then FCCJ to establish
endowments to ensure that
children from Beaches
Habitat homes would receive
full scholarships to complete
college degrees. To allow the
students opportunities to
develop their own sense of
the joy of helping others,
Herb's scholarships are the
only ones to require service.
Herb modeled service by
working alongside his schol-
ars. And .they were his
"Scheidel Scholars", not just
names, as he invested time to
get .to know each and every-
one. He listened to their sto-
ries and encouraged them.
Thinking how his own
daughters grew from their
Study Abroad experiences in
college, Herb added a first-
ever Study Abroad opportu-
nity to his scholarship. In
perpetuity his philanthropic
efforts will be providing the
gift of education and more.
Herb always looked with a
discerning eye and listened
with a discriminating ear to
hear the needs in our com-
munity.....P.A.C.E. Center for
Girls, Habitat for Humanity
of St. Augustine, H.E.R.O.E.S.
and the Gift of Life were
among philanthropic organi-
zations, in addition to count-
less individuals, that benefit-
ed from his generous sup-

Herb spoke so well the lan-
guage of graciousness &
peace. No where was this
more obvious and evident
that at the sterling annual
holiday party Herb and
Miyuki hosted each year.
Opening up their beautiful
home and their hearts, Herb
and Miyuki ushered in the
season of love by inviting all
their friends to a stunning
evening of lavish food and
drink. Herb's friendships
knew no boundaries of race
or socio-economic group.
Mingling at his stunning par-
ties would be Habitat home-
owners, college students,
members of his company's
Board of Directors, titans of
Jacksonville society and
more. By all accounts every-
one felt honored'to be Herb's
friend. One little aside, just
how many people do you
know invite all their relatives
and members of the bridal
party to build at a Habitat
w6rksite the day before their
daughter's wedding?
Through the years since
our daughters took violin les-
sons together, to years serv-
ing on the Board of Beaches
Habitat to my role of run-
ning the Scheidel scholarship
program at UNF our friend-
ship grew. I was privileged to
call Herb Scheidel my friend
and will always be inspired
by his incredible gifts to the
greater good of our commu-
nity. To say he will be missed
is an understatement; to say
his influence will always be a
part of this community is to
acknowledge an incredible
legacy of a humble man that
spoke so many languages
with such fluency!

Be savvy online

place to work, play and
lInternet is a fascinCting
learn, but we should also be
aware of the risks we face while
being online.
The total loss of reported
Internet fraud nationally for
2006 was nearly $200 million.
The following are a few examples
of types of Internet fraud: Sales
via unsolicited e-mails, news-
group postings, chat room dis-
cussions, Web sites, and online
classified advertisements for
everything from t-shirts to toys,
calendars and collectibles: The
merchandise was not delivered,
was defective, or was misrepre-
sented. Don't buy from a compa-
ny online whose reputation is
unknown. You should use care
on offers through Internet auc-
tion Web sites that are unknown
where the sellers never delivered
the items or misrepresented their
value. They also could use what
are termed as "Shills" to drive up
bids and sellers have been known
to raise prices after the highest
bids were made.
Another common fraudulent
scheme is the Nigerian letter or
something similar. The letter
states that you are named in a
will or there is a large amount of
money that needs to be removed
from a foreign country. They ask
for personal financial institution
information under the guise of
depositing money into your
account. They then use this
information to access your
account and withdraw money
instead. You might also receive a
check, unsolicited, ,l4iming, thaa
'you are,4 sweepstakes winneriand ,d
you are asked to deposit the
check. Then you are asked to
send a portion of that check back
and.after doing so, you find out
that the original check was a
fraud and you are out the money
that you sent to them.
Please remember the follow-
ing: "If it sounds too GOOD to be
TRUE,-it probably IS!"
To avoid being a victim of
Internet fraud: Only do business
with those you know and trust. Be
sure you know who the company
or person is and where it is physi-
cally located. Understand the
offer. Look carefully at the infor-
mation about the products or serv-
ices offered, and ask for additional
information, if needed. A legiti-
mate business will be glad to pro-
vide it; a fraudulent telemarketer
won't. Be sure you know what is
being sold, the total price, the
delivery date, the return and can-,
cellation policy, and the terms of
any guarantee. Check out the
company's or individual's track
record. Call to check for com-
plaint records with consumer
agencies and the Better Business
Bureau. Keep in mind that fraud
artists can disappear quickly, espe-
cially in cyberspace.
NEVER give your bank account
numbers, credit card numbers or
other personal information to
anyone you don't know or haven't
checked out. And don't provide
information that isn't necessary to
make a purchase.
Know that people in cyberspace
may not always be what they
seem. Someone who is sharing a
"friendly" tip about a moneymak-
ing scheme or great bargain in a
chat room or on a bulletin board
may have an ulterior motive: to
make money. Finally don't click
on an attachment from someone
you don't know or was unsolicit-
ed. Harmful viruses can be trig-
gered by clicking on an attach-
ment without your knowledge
that could wipe out your comput-
er files or hijack Internet service.
If you are a victim of Internet
fraud, you can file a complaint
with the Internet Crime
Complaint Center at:, or with the
National Fraud Information
Center at:
tactnfic.htm. You can file a com-
plaint with the Better Business
Bureau at:,
and you can file a report with your
local law enforcement agency.
I hope these tips will help you
have a good experience with the
Web. For more information go to

Eleven Senators named Al-Conference


$uper Bowl

$unday can



orget rebate checks from
the government. The
Super Bowl might just
provide the economic stimu-
lus that has become Washing-
ton's latest obsession.
Sales of big-screen TVs and
recliners traditionally peak in
the two weeks leading up to
the NFL's grandest game, and
pizza sales hit their highest
level all year on Super Bowl
Last year, retailers sold 61
percent more televisions in
the week preceding the Super
Bowl than a week prior.
Having the latest high-defini-
tion, flat-panel, surround-
sound, giant screen on which
to watch the game seems to
inspire plenty of folks to
spend thousands of dollars.
While TV sales are also
high during the Christmas
season, most of the sets are
purchased as gifts and they're
predominantly small- or
medium-sized units.
Come Super Bowl time,
however, the great America
tradition of "bigger is better"
As for ecliners and sofas,.,
January and February are tra-
ditionally the strongest
months in terms of sales.
After-Christmas discounts
help, but so too do special
promotions aimed at those
planning Super Bowl parties.
Having the "right" furni-
ture is pitched as essential to
a successful party, and in the
past retail chains have hired
folks like former NFL quarter-
back Joe Namath and coach
Don Shula as spokesmen.
And then there's pizza.
Domino's Pizza says its sales
spike 30 percent on Super
Bowl Sunday over a typical
Sunday. Domino's expects to
deliver more than 1.2 million
pies across America for the
big game.
According to the Associated
Press, the chain stockpiles
ingredients, hires extra help
for game day and schedules
everyone on the payroll to
work that day.
Former delivery drivers
often come back to work for
that one day and its tip-laden
Domino's also offers special
promotions for Super Bowl
Sunday as another way of
increasing sales.
Rival pizza chain Papa
John's also gears up for Super
Bowl Sunday with extra staff
and ingredients, but oddly
the day is only one of three
top sales days for the year.
The others are Halloween and
the day before Thanksgiving.
Papa John's expects to sell
750,000 pizzas and more than
1 million chicken wings
nationwide on Sunday.
The economy receives
another shot in arm through
wagers on the Super Bowl.
While gambling on sports is
illegal in every state but
Nevada, Las Vegas casinos say
bets on this year's matchup
between the New England
Patriots and New York Giants
could top the $100 million
mark for the first time in his-
The previous record was
$94.5 million set two years
ago when the Pittsburgh
Steelers beat the Seattle
Those are the wagers that
are accounted for. Many,
many more millions are bet
through office pools, offshore
sports book web sites and
online casinos.
Sure the Lombardi Trophy
will be up for grabs Sunday,
but for retailers across
America the millions of dol-
lars at stake are the real prize.

soccer squad

A total of 11 Fletcher
Senators have been named to
the boys and girls.All
Gateway Conference teams, it
was announced this week.
From the girls team, Teale
Beckenbach, Sam Lance,
Carolina Lencina, Michelle
Tsengas and goalkeeper Amy
Medis received first-team
Taylor Harbison and.Hunter
Summers received honorable
The Lady Senators finished
as runners-up to Paxon in the
Gateway Conference tourna-
ment January 11. That game
proved a hard-fought battle
in which scoring opportuni-
ties were few, but the Golden
Eagles capitalized on one sec-
ond-half chance to win 1-0.
Under first-year head coach
Nicole Conrad, Fletcher's sea-
son ended a few days later
with a loss to nemesis
Mandarin in the District 1-6A
The team finished at 11-6-1
in an up-and-down campaign
that saw the Senators learn-
ing a new offensive system
then battling through a rash
of injuries at mid-season.
On the boys side, senior co-
captains Donald Grzena and
Cabe Nolan were named to
the all conference team, as
were Tony Kattreh, Aaron
Levine, Sean Tracy and goal-
keeper Taylor Wyman.
Nick November and Alek
Slaveski received honorable
Fletcher won the Gateway
crown with a 3-0 victory over
Wol'fson Jan. 11 at Patton
It was the Senators' second
consecutive conference cham-
pionship and among head
coach Mike Levine's list of
goals for the team.
With the victory, Fletcher
secured a much easier path in
the District 1-6A playoffs,
earning a first-round bye and
needing just two victories to
take the title.
A 3-1 victory over Orange
Park last Friday night at
Mandarin earned the Senators
the 1-6A championship and
helped Levine check off
another goal: homefield
advantage in the regional
playoffs this week.
Goals by Kattreh, Nolan
and Gabe Smith propelled
Fletcher (20-1-3) to victory
over the Raiders.
"I'm not looking past the
[quarterfinal] games at all,
but I think we have a good
chance to see Orange Park
again," Levine said after win-
ning the district champi-
The teams could meet up
again in a regional semifinal
matchup if both advance
through the opening round
of the state playoffs.
The Senators were set to
tangle with Flagler Palm
Coast Thursday night in the
regional quarterfinals at
It was FPC that knocked
the Senators out of the play-
offs last season. Levine said a
number of his players remem-
ber that game, played at
home, in which the teams
battled to a scoreless tie until
Bulldogs freshman Jason
Alvarez converted a contro-
versial penalty kick late in the
second half for a 1-0 win.
"That was last year's team
and this is this year's," Levine
said following last Friday's
victory. "You have to worry
about everyone that's still
playing right now.
"There are only 32 teams
left in our classification and
everyone else has gone home
for the year."
Should Fletcher get past
FPC, the regional semifinal
round will be played Tuesday,
Feb. 5 with the regional finals
scheduled for Friday, Feb. 8.
Regional winners advance

Bigger may be better, but it's clearly not safer

T twenty years ago, a three
hundred pound lineman
was uncommon in the
NFL. Players of that size were a
precious commodity.
In 1985, America fell in love
with the Chicago Bears'
William "The Refrigerator"
Perry. One of only five players
in the league over 300 pounds,
he was a lovable guy, but also
somewhat of an oddity given
the fact that he was so large,
but was also fairly agile for
someone so freakishly large.
Carrying his team to a Super
Bowl title, Perry became a phe-
nomenon. Now he would be
run of the mill, for there are so
many guys now his size, he
would find himself just fitting
According to,
when Bill Clinton was elected
President in 1992, there were
only 70 players in the NFL
who tipped the scales at 300
pounds. Now, that number
has grown, with 455 players in
the league who better that
The average weight of that
Chicago Bears line was 274,
while average weight of a line-
man at the 2004 NFL Pro Bowl
was 317 pounds. At this year's
Super Bowl,.each and every
offensive lineman tops the
300-pound mark.
While that added bulk may
good for the team, it is certain-
ly not good for the body. The
added weight puts added stress
on the body, with an increased
risk of heart disease, hyperten-
sion, diabetes, stroke, sleep

apnea, and degenerative arthri-.
From an orthopedic perspec-
tive, carrying all that weight is
just too much over the long
term for the joints, especially
the knees to handle.
The player may have more
muscle and fat with a resultant
increase weight, but the carti-
lage that lines the joint does
not increase in its thickness.
Therefore it just has to simply
bear the heavier burden, and it
wears out faster.
Joint replacements are often
the end result. A study by the
NFL showed that its players are
five times more likely to suffer
from sleep apnea, the disorder

Question: Dr. Smith, I am
an avid rider, but my hands
go numb when I am cycling.
Got any thoughts?

Answer: Symptoms of bicy-
cling-induced ulnar tunnel
syndrome are commonly seen
in people who do a lot of rid-
ing. The combination of pro-
longed gripping and constant
leaning on the handlebars can
lead to sustained pressure on
the ulnar nerve, which causes
hand weakness and sensation
changes most commonly in
the fourth and fifth fingers.
Patients will often report
that they have begun to notice
that it is becoming more diffi-
cult to do fine motor tasks
with the hand (such as writing
and picking up change) and
that their last two fingers are
numb. This is different from
carpal tunnel syndrome which
causes numbness in the first
three fingers.
A study of 169 participants.
in a bicycle touring race found
that 22 had complaints of
hand numbness and weakness

Treatment of bicycle-
induced ulnar tunnel syn-
drome usually involves rest,
splinting, padded gloves and
anti-inflammatory medica-
tions. The duration of symp-
toms often signals the likely

longer it takes to get better.

Answer: Once you were hurt,
you should have definitely
called it a night and stopped
playing. A deep thigh contu-
sion leads to damaged muscle
tissue and bleeding.

Evans creates tribute to Beaches surfing history

Inspired by his friends, his
family and years of travel-
ing for surfing, Buddy
Evans is creating a tribute to
local surfing.
Evans, 37, has signed pho-
tos and surfboards from local
surfers in what he calls a
"mini surfing museum" at his
family's restaurant, Eddie
Bahama's, located at 314 First
Street North in Jacksonville
"In all these little beach
towns in Hawaii and
California, like Oceanside,
Cal., there are
mini museums
just about the ,
surfers from that
area," Evans
"I always
thought we
needed that
around here." "
Evans is also
donating memo-
rabilia to Mitch
Kaufmann who
is creating an
exhibit dedicat-
ed to the history
of surfing in
Jacksonville for
the Beaches
Kaufmann Sufl
said the exhibit *
will focus on
surfing in the
1960s with a
timeline of local
surfing through the present.
The exhibit is planned to run
from mid-June through the
"Buddy's collecting pics of
all the prominent surfers who
have come and gone in a wall
of fame," Kaufmann said. "It's
a neat surf history museum."
Jacksonville Beach surfer
Eric Rheaume's broken board
he surfed on en route to the
bronze medal in the Pan-Am
Games in 2003 is hanging on
the wall at Eddie Bahama's as
well as a magazine cover
signed by Karina Petroni of
Atlantic Beach. Petroni is surf-
ing on the women's World
Championship Tour this year.
"Anybody who breaks their
board and brings it in to hang
on-the-ceiling.we'llgive a free
beer'and fish-burrito," Evans
said. "Word is starting'to get
out. We've had lots of surfers
stopping by and searching for
their memorabilia to bring
Eddie Bahama's is named
after Evans' stepfather, Steve
Edwards, whose nickname is
Eddie Bahama. The family
owned the Island Grill ocean-
front restaurant in Jackson-
ville Beach in the mid-1990s
until they sold it when Evans
was diagnosed with category
four testicular cancer in 1998.
"They told me I wouldn't
see 28," Evans said.
Evans had surgery to
remove his left testicle and he
went through experimental
chemotherapy for a year and
a half when tumors were also
found in his kidney, liver and
stomach. Evans said he has
been in remission for nearly
10 years and is in the medical
history books for largest bulk
tumor disease and fastest
recovery under the care of
oncologist Dr. Troy Guthrie at
Shands Jacksonville.
He was also told that he
probably wouldn't be able to
have children.
"I got down on my knees
10 years ago and prayed that I
would one day be a father,
Evans said while holding his
10-month-old son, Merrick.
"He is an absolute miracle."
Evans and his wife,
Morgan, named their son
William Merrick' Evans after
surfboard shaping legend Al
Merrick, whose brand of
board is Channel Island
"Al Merrick has been my
sponsor since 1991 and he's
still my sponsor," Evans said.
"He is an amazing sponsor.
He and his family wrote me a
letter while I was in the hos-
pital and donated Merrick
surfboards to raffle off to help
pay for my chemo. He doesn't
forget about you even if
you're the old guy surfing in
the senior men's division. I
honored] him-by-naming my
son Merrick, which also

means, king of the sea."
Evans grew up in
Jacksonville Beach and has
been surfing since he can
remember. But life started out
as a struggle for Evans even as
a child when he was diag-
nosed with osteomyelitis, an
infection of the bone, and
had to wear braces on both
He recovered and started
surfing amateur events
through the East Coast
Surfing Association [ESA].



Evans won the southeast
regional championships while
he was going through chemo
and placed third in the U.S.
Championships of Surfing in
Two months later, he was
surfing in Jacksonville Beach
after Hurricane Floyd and
broke three vertebrae in his

said. "If I had nine lives I fig-
ure I probably have about five

time developing

Evans said.

Boston's Dennis Lehane.

Lehane to

speak Feb.

8 at Flagler

Best-selling author Dennis
Lehane will speak Friday, Feb.
8, as part of Flagler College's
Writers-in-Residence program.
The free event is 7 p.m. in
the Flagler College Auditorium.
Lehane has written several
novels, including "Mystic
River," which was made into
an Academy Award-winning
film starring Sean Penn and
directed by Clint Eastwood.
Another Lehane novel
recently adapted for the screen
is "Gone, Baby, Gone," which
gamed a best supporting
actress nomination for Amy
Martin Scorsese and
Leonardo DiCaprio are current-
ly working on the movie adap-
tation of the Lehane thriller,
S"Shutter Island." The film ver-
sion will be released in 2009.
"It's very exciting to wel-
come Mr. Leh ne," said Jim
Wilson, Ph.D., associate profes-
sor of English and director of
the Flagler College Writers-in-
Residence program.
"His literary and popular suc-
cess promises to make this a
very big draw for both the
Flagler College community and
the region at large."
Lehane's short stories
include "Until Gwen," which
was selected for inclusion in

A cast of 22 takes the stage today for the opening production of Al Letson's "Julius X." Tickets are $18 and $15. Call 249-0289.

Letson's 'Julius I' opens today

Players by the Sea
Community Theatre opens
"Julius X," a swift and
enthralling political thriller
by nationally known play-
wright Al Letson at 8 p.m.
today at 106 6th St. N.,
Jacksonville Beach.
Tickets are $18 and $15.
Directed-by Barbara '-:"
Colaciello Williams and
inspired by Shakespeare's
"Tragedy of Julius Caesar,"
"Julius X" amalgamates the
lives of Caesar and slain
civil rights leader Malcolm
X, creating a powerful tale
of betrayal.
The play's opening coin-
cides with the first day,of
Black History Month. It was
originally commissioned by
the Baltimore Theatre
Said The Baltimore Sun
Times, "Playwright Al Letson
offers a classic and classical-
demonstration not only of

Shakespeare's infinite adapt-
ability, but also, thematical-
ly, of how allies can become
assassins and how the strug-
gle for power can turn
Letson, weaves the text of
Shakespeare with African
mythology, the history of
the civil rights movement,
slam poetry, and hip-hop

The poetry ranges from
Shakespearian soliloquies to
slam poems utilizing a cast
of 22 actors.
"In true mix-em-up fash-
ion, Al Letson has taken the
violence, politics and other-
worldliness of Shakespeare's
'Julius Caesar' and smashed
it into the history and
mythology of Malcolm X,
creating a spoken-word tale
of Harlem in the 1960s,"
another Baltimore critic
"Conceptualizing that
place, the place in-between,
and creating that world
through the set, movement,
costumes and lighting,
that's what will help the
audience cross over into the
poetry," said Williams about
the play's hybrid nature.
The cast features poets
Larry Knight as Brutus and
David Girard as Cassius,
both of whom were last
seen on the Players stage in

"Griot: He Who Speaks'the
Sweet Word," which they -
co-wrote with Letson.
Joining them are Douglas
Anderson School of the
Performing Arts graduates
Freddy Odinga Tripp as
Julius X, and Steven
Anderson as Marc Anthony.
Miranda Lawson, a Pelican
award winner, playsPortia,- '
and newcomer Deltoiya
Goodman, also a Douglas
Anderson grad, plays
Calpurnia, Julius X's wife.
Letson recently bested
more than 1,400 others to
win the Public Radio Talent
Quest. He recently complet-
ed a pilot for potential fur-
ther development into a
national radio program.
A recipient of a 2005
Florida Artist Grant, he has

nized for his soul-stirring,

What's in a name...

Personality traits and quirky behavior help to

give your pet a unique and individual name

When it comes to naming
pets, "Bear" beats "Tiger,"
"Pepper" tops "Patches" and
"Max" comes in at No. 1.
A survey of veterinarians by
the American Society of
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals found that Max is the
most popular pet name in the
United States today.
A review of thousands of
names found that Max is fol-
lowed by Sam, Lady, Bear and
Smokey, in that order.
Shadow comes in at No. 6,
Kitty at No. 7, Molly at 8, Buddy
and 9 and Brandy at 10.
Pepper is No. 15, Tiger is 18
and Patches, 27. At the bottom
of the list of 30 pet names is
No matter how much time
and thought you give to select-
ing a name for your pet, bow- suggests keep
in mind a few issues while
you're mulling a moniker for

your furry friend.
Remember that the name
you choose will used dozens of
times a day to call, praise and
perhaps scold.
Pick a name the pet can eas-
ily recognize. Animals respond
better to one or two syllable
Choose a name that's both
easy to call out and one that you
are happy calling out. Calling
out "Jack" or "Zoe" in the park
may be far less embarrassing
than calling out "Mister Barky
Von Schnauser."
For dogs, avoid names that
sound like the standard com-
mands of "no," "stay," "sit,"
"come," "down" or "fetch." For
example "Joe" is probably too
close to "no."
If choosing a long name,
keep in mind the shortened ver-"
The pet's breed or heritage
can provide some useful inspira-

tion. For example, you may
decide to name your Siamese cat
"Ling-Ling" or your German
shepherd "Wolfgang" or
Waiting a few days to study
your pet's behaviour can help
pick the right name, for exam-
ple, Scamp, Perky, Friendly,
Lazy-Boy, Scooter or Tip-Toe.
Pick a name that will grow
with the pet. For example
"Kitten" may be less appropriate
for a full grown cat.
If you have other pets in the
house, try to have a distinctive
sounding name for your new
pet. You don't want "Lefty" to
get confused when you call
If you name a new pet after
a dear departed pet, don't expect
the animal to become an identi-
cal one to it.
Sources:, pet- and info-

Pet Tales wal-is yuE!
Actually, Pet Tales wants your pet, whether he
4-% walks, crawls, runs, creeps or jumps.
Whether she purrs, barks, snorts, neighs
hisses. Whether your pet is furry, slimy,
scaly, hairy or prickly.
Whether it has four legs
or eight (or none).
Whether it's timid, bold,
frenetic or calm.
All we require is that the
pet be legal. And loved.

PVUMC members return from

Cuba after visiting sister church


On January 27 at Ponte Vedra United
Methodist Church, the church's Cuba mis-
sion team presented a banner given to the
church by a Cuban Methodist Church.
For Cuban religious groups, there have
been "changes in the last decade.....
Following the Pope's visit to Cuba in 1996,
some draconian restrictions were lifted,"
said mission team member George Reed.
The other mission team members were
Ellen Carson, Ph.D. and Reed's wife Loree.
Ponte Vedra United Methodist Church is
one of 126 churches participating in the
United Methodists' Cuba-Florida Covenant.
Through the 10-year-old Covenant, Florida
Methodist churches are paired with a sister
chuch in Cuba.
The mission trip and ongoing support
from the Ponte Vedra church will help to
"build a bridge between the two communi-
ties." said George Reed.
On their recent week-long trip to Cuba,
the mission team brought a banner signed
by PVUMC members to give to the La Sierra.
The team from PVUMC was "welcomed
and embraced" by the people at the La
Sierra Church, said Carson.
The Cuban -people wanted to send a
banner that they signed to PVUMC.
"The banner made it more real to people
in our chuch," she said.

La Sierra is a small town in the hills about
an hour outside of Havana. The Methodist
church there has about 50 members. Many
of the other people in the area also attend
services there, said George Reed.
Communication with the La Sierra
church is difficult and was one of the chal-
lenges the team faced in planning the mis-
It is not possible to send regular mail,
email, or telephone Father Damian
Pacheco, the church's pastor, Reed said.
The mission team traveled with other
church teams working with the Cuba-
Florida Covenant and relied on insights
from those who had already been to Cuba.
PVUMC'Pastor, Rev. Jeff Bennett, had
also been to La Sierra in 1994 and was also
able to provide some help to the mission
The Reeds and Carson brought 300
pounds of clothing, medical supplies, and
other items with them to La Sierra.
"The people were so grateful," said
"Life is a struggle there. The church is so
important to them."
They need help for the material needs of
the church. They also need to know that.
someone is holding them up spiritually,
said Carson.
The mission team will present a program
on their trip to La Sierra at Ponte Vedra
United Methodist Church on February 17.
For information, contact the church office
at 280-5141.
