27-year-old mother will be

Bingham said the
,woman called her brother

People today do not

"When you get on a labyrinth, it is a metaphor for life,"
said Harris
While a person may think they are going in one direction,
life often takes them in another direction, as a labyrinth does.
Also, if there are others on the labyrinth at the same tim, it
may be necessary to step aside to accommodate them.

Unlike mazes 'which
have obstructions that
compel the walker to turn
around, labyrinths have
no obstructions, she said.
The walk towards the
center is an opportunity to
consciously put aside
problems and concerns
and become calm.
"It is good for our souls
just to be quiet," said
Then in the center of
the labyrinth, it is possible
to be "open to whatever
comes to mind. "
As the person walks out
of the labyrinth, they may
feel better prepared for
prayer or may have a new
perspective, she said.
The labyrinth used by
Christ Episcopal is paint-
ed on canvas. It is a modi-
fied version of the
labyrinth in the floor of
Chartres Cathedral in

Christ Church is at 400 San Juan Drive in Ponte Vedra. The
labyrinth will be set up weather permitting. For information,
call the church office at 285-6127.
Walking the labyrinth is a way to prepare for the Lenten
Taize worship services which will be held at the church at 7
p.m. on Fridays in Lent.
These will be meditative prayer services with special music
and chants, said Harris.

The cost of health insurance is ris-
ing, experts agree.
But, while many employees in the
private sector are shouldering the
burden of the extra costs, govern-
ment employees are still receiving
generous benefit packages, experts
Lynn Turner is an analyst with
Plan Analysts, a firm that helps
companies secure group health
insurance. She attributes the
increase in health insurance costs to
several factors, including aging
demographics, escalating costs due
to new technology through medical
facilities and advances in research
and development.
"Consumers are spoiled in their
thinking that health insurance is an
entitlement," she said.
The average monthly worker con-
tribution increased for both single
and family coverage in 2007,
according to an annual health bene-
fits survey conducted by the Kaiser

Family Foundation.
But, while the private sector is
feeling the pinch, many govern-
ment employees continue to have
generous benefits options, Turner
"The cost may be there to that
entity, but they are making sure the
individuals aren't paying," she said
of government benefit choices.
There is a larger population and
more money available, which allows
governmental institutions to offer a
"richer menu of benefits," according
to Turner. Turner explained that tra-
ditionally governments have offered
ample benefit packages to supple-
ment less pay.
Neptune Beach has 71 employees,
Atlantic Beach has approximately
120 employees and Jacksonville
Beach has approximately 300
A new trend for employers in the
private sector is to pay a flat rate
toward an employee's health insur-
ance costs, rather than pay a per-
centage. That is unlike government

JB to reuse more treated

waste water in public space

photo by CHUCK ADAMS
Special guests and Oceanside Rotary members listen Tuesday in Neptune Beach Elementary
School's media center as the school's chorus sings,as part of ceremonies leading up to the dedi-
cation of Phase II of the school's playground project.

Playground Phase II is

result of 2 years of work

New playground for
disabled will be open to
the entire community

Sherri Nicholson, called by her husband the
"volunteer extreme extraordinaire" with the PTA
at Neptune Beach Elementary, gave a sigh of relief
Tuesday that Phase II of the school's playground
program had been completed. She then expressed
pride in what had been accomplished by the com-
munity as a whole, the school and the Oceanside
"It took us two years to do this," Nicholson said
on a dark, foggy morning at the new playground,
an hour before its dedication. "This is Playground
by the Sea, and this is what Oceanside Rotary
Nicholson helped spearhead the building of
two playgrounds at the Florida Avenue school, the
first 100 percent handicapped accessible, the sec-
ond one 80 percent.
"The playground means a lot to the students at
this school, as well as the community," said prin-
-cipal Stephanie Manabat, "because it's a place
'teachers can take students- for physical activity
and to engage in building relationships. It's very
important they have a place to go."
Manabat emphasized that donors and sponsors
had made the playground project possible, "and a
lot of volunteers have put a lot of time and effort
into making it very nice and safe for the kids.
"It's huge because the community can enjoy it,
the kids can enjoy it," she said.
Sherron Kenski, the'school's principal when the
playground project began and who .retired last
May 31, returned for the ribbon-cutting ceremony
this week. She was joined by Manabat, Nicholson,
Jacksonville city councilman Art Graham,
Neptune Beach city councilman "Fel" Lee,
Oceanside Rotary Club president Don Dymer and
Norm Reimer, who chaired the playground proj-
ect for the Rotarians.
"The Rotary and Norm Reimer, Sherri

Nicholson, they're like pit bulls. They got hold of
this and did not let go," said Kenski. "They say it
takes a whole village to raise a child. Well, it took
a whole community to raise this playground."
Reimer said he was asked to head the project by
Lee, president at the time.
"I met with Sherron Kenski and members of the
PTA..Karen Arlington was the president. And we
planned this thing out," said Reimer. "We looked
at proposals from companies that wanted to build
the playground. We decided on a company, then
decided how much money we were going to need
and started the fundraising effort.
"We came up with two designs and, because of
the total cost, decided it would be a two-year proj-
ect," he said.
Reimer said Oceanside donated $15,000 to the
first playground and $50,000 to the second.
"They were able to. put together, within a year,
$50,000 towards our funds," Nicholson said of the
Rotarians. "The city of Jacksonville put $40,000;
the rest of the money we raised through the PTA.
",I'm estimating about $400,000 that our
school, in the last three years, has raised/received
from local sponsors," she said. "And created not
only a totally handicapped accessible facility and
the 80 percent we just finished, but also a 70,000-
square-foot multi-purpose field and a quarter-mile
track. The PTA, our volunteers, our parents raised
the money thl:,ouh local .spoinxmis city officialin'g
ar-d'al ttiat." --
The Navy was involved in the first playground,
but Nicholson said of the second phase, "Mainly
it's been Rotary and city of Jacksonville. The PTA
[and] of course all the parents in our area, [and
the] city of Neptune Beach.
"One of our secret, kind of in the background,
people who have been phenomenal has been the
Public Works Department of Neptune Beach. If
there's something we need, whether it equipment
or manpower, they've never walked away. They
are always right in there with us."
Both phases are open to the community.
"This actually is considered a park," Nicholson
said of Phase II. "This is a playground that is a
school-owned facility. The grounds are owned by
the school, but it's leased to the city of Neptune
Beach for after-school hours as a public park."

Jacksonville Beach officials are taking steps to
extend the city's water reuse plan to use treated
effluent to irrigate more public facilities and
limit the nitrogen levels in the St. Johns River.
The City Council Monday authorized a
$49,495 engineering study to develop a master
plan detailing ways to increase the reuse of treat-
ed water.
Plans will also address the guidelines estab-
lished by the Environmental Protection Agency
to reduce the amount of nitrogen in the Lower
St. Johns River basin.
Jones Edmonds & Associates will establish a
plan that will enable the city to maximize the
potential for treated effluent and reduce the lev-
els of nitrogen and wastewater contaminants
released into the river.
State environmental officials issue Wastewater
and Storm water National Pollution Discharge
Elimination System (NODES) permits to enforce
the nitrogen allocations.
Jacksonville Beach has both permits and plans
to incorporate nitrogen limits within the next
According to city officials, the plan will iden-
tify potential sites within the city that could uti-
lize treated waste water for irrigation and ensure
that the proper pipe size is installed in the spe-
cific areas.

employers, who typically foot
the bill for a considerable per-
centage to underwrite the cost
of the insurance provided to
employees and their families,
Turner said.
Neptune Beach, Jacksonville
Beach and Atlantic Beach each
offer a variety of plans. Each
city has at least one option in
which an employee can receive
health insurance and pay no
premium, according to munici-
pal benefit packages.
Costs to extend health insur-
ance coverage to spouse and/or
children require Beach munici-
pal employees to pay a share -
with costs ranging from
employees paying 50 percent of
the costs for family coverage in
Neptune Beach to 26 percent of
the costs for a basic family poli-
cy in Jacksonville Beach.
In Neptune Beach, a union
contract calls for the city to pay
for an employee's insurance
and half of the insurance costs
for family coverage, according
to Finance Director Steve
Ramsey, who said that a single
employee policy costs the city
$398.62 per month. That plan
costs the employee nothing.
Atlantic Beach offers similar
coverage, paying 100 percent of
the HMO employee premium
and 50 percent of the costs for
base HMO family coverage.
Employees can choose a more
deluxe health insurance plan if
they agree to bear a larger
share of the costs. For the plan
with the most generous bene-
fits, an employee who wanted.
family coverage would have to
pay approximately 43 percent
of the cost, with the city pay-
ing the balance.
Jacksonville Beach offers
employees four different
health insurance plan options.
Atlantic Beach Human
Resources Director George
Foster said that he reviews all
the Beach cities' benefits each
year to make sure the ,city is
competitive with other gov-
ernmental bodies hiring from
the same labor pool. He said
he does not compare to. the
private sector, however.

"It is the city's intention to utilize the infor-
mation contained in this reuse master plan by
incorporating the reuse piping as ancillary work
in various city infrastructure improvement proj-
ects constructed in the future," Public Works
Director Ti Edward's said in his staff recommen-
A new wastewater treatment plant will also be
constructed to advanced treatment standards to
help reduce nitrogen and allow treated effluent
to be used for irrigation without the need for
additional treatment.
Preliminary cost for the new treatment facility
is estimated at $20 million.
"When we do spend the money to upgrade
the water treatment facility we won't have to
treat it the way we do now," City Manager
George Forces said. "That really expands the
scope of how we use it."
Currently, effluent treated at the wastewater
treatment plant is pumped to the city's four-acre
pond at the municipal golf course and used to
irrigate the 18-hole course, Wingate Park, police
station and the Operations and Maintenance
A conduit will also be installed in the new
Slandscaped median on Beach Boulevard to pro-
vide irrigation for the Lee Kirkland and H.
Warren Smith cemeteries.
"We are already looking at the future," Forbes

The vote was 4-1, both the Mayor and the
Vice Mayor voted in favor of art. Only John
Weldon voted nah as he publicly accused us of
using a technicality to win. Even after all the
discussions, Mr. Weldon stands steadfast in his
Belief that "it is a sign". He referred to it as
having no other purpose except to advertise
Day or Night Moves, Inc. (a commercial and
residential moving company). Based on his
argument, it seems fair to say that he dis-
agrees with the hundreds of locals, many of
which are tax paying citizens of Neptune
Beach, who signed our petition voting that it
is ART!
Regardless of Mr. Weldon's vote, my reply
remains the same...any type of business
including a sub shop, chiropractor, even
Neptune Beach City Hall could occupy our
building and there would be no reason for
anyone to wonder why there wv ia a mural'

Perhaps Mr. Weldon should consider this...if
our purpose was to advertise our company,

There is no denying Mr. Forbes
is personable and funny, always

the Council. Perhaps our police
would stand a better chance of
receiving equal consideration if

Boys lacrosse begins season with victory

Fletcher High midfielder Billy Skinner (69) looks for an open teammate while guarded by Sandalwood's Dylan Parvin (15) and Tim Rodriguez during boys lacrosse action Monday at Sandalwood. The
Senators earned a victory over the Saints in their season opener and were scheduled to take on Mandarin at Jack Taylor Stadium on Thursday night. Fletcher will play a 15-game schedule this sea-
son, the first for boys lacrosse to be recognized as a sanctioned sport by the Florida High School Athletic Association. Lacrosse is the country's fastest-growing sport on the high school level and
2008 marks the third season for the Senators team, which began play as a club sport two years ago.

had been shot in the arm by a
nail gun. The nail had pene-
trated through the outer
aspect of his elbow, through
the muscle and into the bone,
which fractured about the
embedded nail.
The man was in pain, as you
would expect, but he was also
unable to move his arm due
to the bony penetration. He
was taken to surgery, where
the nail was removed, the
path of penetration was surgi-
cally cleaned, and then he was
casted for his fracture.
These types of things hap-
pen all the time. I previously
noted an amazing story about
a guy who shot himself in the
head with a nail gun, some-
how didn't know he had done
it, and eventually went to his
dentist for what he thought



was an infected tooth. An X-
ray showed the nail embedded
into his skull, partially pene-'
trating his brain.
He was taken to the hospital
where he underwent emer-
gency removal and has not
suffered any permanent dam-

Although the building.
boom has slowed, nail gun
injuries continue to be com-
monly seen. With discharged
nails traveling at speeds up to
1,400 feet per second, nail gun
injuries most commonly affect
the non-dom-
inant hand
and the feet. I previous
I once had an amazin

had been an infected

Accident victims commonly
present to the emergency
room, X-rays are used to deter-

mine the path of penetration,
and then usually the nail can
be removed there. The trau-
matic wound is cleaned, and
the patient is sent home on a
course of oral antibiotics.
With proper treatment

infections are
not common.
When easy
removal in the
room is not
possible, or
the nail has
penetrated the
bone or a
joint, the
patient will be
taken to the
room for fur-
ther treat-

Another interesting case
involved a man who shot
himself in the outer aspect of
his knee. The nail penetrated

his thigh bone, and across the
knee joint into his shin (the
tibia). Then he fell, and bent
the nail within the center of
his knee joint.
As you can imagine, he pre-
sented to the ER with his knee
locked into position. He too
was taken to the operating
room where the nail was care-
fully removed, and he fully
recovered from his injury.
Nail guns are equipped with
safety devices that require the
gun be pressed firmly against
the surface to be nailed, there-
by preventing the possibility
that the gun be accidentally
fired, sending the nail soaring
through the air.
SHowever, operators often
remove this safety device in
order to speed up the process
of covering the area to be
secured more rapidly.
Nail guns account for
approximately 15 percent of
carpenter-related injuries.

First Coast Surfrider targets beach erosion

Beach erosion, land devel-
opment and educational
are among the
top issues the
First Coast
Foundation is
focusing on in
2008, said foun-
dation chairman
Rhea Drysdale
In recent
years; First Coast
Surfrider focused
many of its
efforts on water
quality and
beach access.
"Our water url
testing program
is a success; the
city is doing an l
excellent job of
water testing so
we're looking at
shifting our efforts to more of


a broad-based environmental
focus," Drysdale said.
"Beach erosion is a big con-
cern. We've gotten beach
access, now we need to make
sure there is a beach to go to."'
First Coast
Surfrider won a
lawsuit against
St. Johns County
in 2006 that
required the
county to clear
and mark all
public beach
access points.
First Coast
Surfrider gained
national recogni-
tion in 2007
when a Florida
court ordered
removed from
beach access
points along
Ponte Vedra
Blvd. The victory
re was named the
No. 1 "win" in
the nation last
year by The Surfrider

Foundation, the non-profit
organization dedicated to pro-
tection and reservations of
the world's oceans.
"Ponte Vedra legislation led
the precedent for what
became statewide last year
and that was huge," Drysdale
said. "Now with more of an
environmental focus we are
also looking into events to
spread awareness."
First Coast Surfrider is pre-
senting an "Our Oceans
Forum Series" in collaboration
with the Marine Safety
Division of Jacksonville Fire
and Rescue Departments. The
first session scheduled for
March 18 from 7 p.m. to 8:30
p.m. at the Marine Science
Center in Mayport will focus
on wave forecasting with
speakers Tim Deegan of First
Coast News, and Dean, surf
forecaster for The Surf Station.
First Coast Surfrider is also
spreading environmental
awareness to students by par-
ticipating in events such as

First Coast Surfrider has also
been added to the Huguenot

Park advisory board and is

ment of.the cruise ship termi-

mentally friendly way for

'Marathon Strokes'

benefits breast

cancer research

Raising money for breast
cancer research and running
a marathon were not New
Year's resolutions for
Jacksonville Beach artist
Kurtis Loftus in 2006.
By the end of that year,
however, Loftus had raised
$5,000 for the Donna Hicken
Foundation and had run a
marathon in under four
His commitment to both
endeavors has risen exponen-
tially over the past two years
with his involvement in the
26.2 with Donna, a
marathon set for Sunday,
Feb. 17, at the Mayo Clinic.
Loftus, 46, designed the
inaugural event's commemo-
rative poster, T-shirt art and
finisher medals. He has also
volunteered to pace a group
of runners on race day.
But his biggest contribu-
tion to the cause comes
when Loftus opens
"Marathon Strokes," an
exhibit of 11 original paint-
ings, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
today at Ocean 60 in Atlantic
All proceeds from the sale
of the paintings will support
the 26.2 with Donna: The
National Marathon to Fight
Breast Cancer.
"I'm hoping that all of the
pieces sell," said Loftus, the
president and creative direc-
tor of The Kurtis Group, a ..
Jacksonville Beach advertis-
ing agency.
Loftus has already sold
three of the 11 mixed medi-
um paintings, which depict
marathon runners, including

"Stephanie," one of the

"I wanted them to be

Loftus, who ran his first
marathon in three hours and
45 seconds no small feat
for that distance has been
training with more than 100
runners affiliated with the
Donna Hicken Foundation.
During training runs,
Loftus carries a small digital
camera in his right hand to
capture fellow runners in
stride or at rest. He uses the
images as a starting point for
his paintings.
Loftus said one of his
favorite works in the
"Marathon Strokes" series is
"Stephanie," which portrays
a female runner during a

Brightman sticks to formula

For a few minutes, it
seems like "Symphony,"
the latest release from
Sarah Brightman, is going to
break some new musical
ground for the pop/opera
That notion is dismissed
after five and a half minutes
when the title song begins.
But while Brightman stays,
for the most part, in the
comfort of her familiar musi-
cal yard, at least she's taking
a look over the fence at some
new territory.
That new musical territory


rears its head on the second
track, "Fleurs Du Mal," which
has an almost but not quite
- gothic flavor. Electric gui-
tars are toned down in favor
of soaring strings and a pow-
erful vocal chorus. As in her
best songs, Brightman alter-
nates between her airy, pop
voice and operatic soprano
with chilling results.

originating the roll of

Don't jump the gun before spring
After you get them. By the deeply, but rather a bit higher

T today I saw a large pot of
red geraniums, one of
my favorite flowers from
childhood, and I was tempted
to purchase the pot.
Seeing them really made me
think about all aspects of
spring that we will soon have
upon us, the greening of the
lawns, the seedlings going
into a vegetable plot, the beds
cleaned up and flowers plant-
ed for touches of color, the
smells of fresh weeds and the
chirping of birds as they find
places to build their nests.
We need to be a little care-
ful and not jump the gun,
especially on using fertilizer
too early on our lawns.
As I have told you many
times, fertilizer brings new
growth, and new growth is
very susceptible to cold tem-
peratures. Pruning also stimu-
lates new growth, and direct-
ing the job to dormant plants
is the key right now.
I am sure we will have a few
more "get out the old sheets"
nights, so as you salivate over
buying colorful but tender
annuals and vegetables, just
remember that it is OK to buy
them, but probably best not
to plant them into the ground
for a few more weeks.
Find a spot where they can
be outdoors during the warm
days and then brought in for
the cool nights. Or plant
them into containers that can
be wheeled into the garage
when freeze warnings are
Let's review a gardener's
check list as we go into spring;
keep it handy and mark off
what you've completed as the

I've already talked with you
about tree care, but have not
reminded you of how to plant
a tree, and then care for it.

are even free, but they need
some TLC from the time you
take them home..I will have
more detailed information for
you in next week's issue.
You'll either be buying a
balled and burlapped tree or a
container-grown one. Either
way, the hole should be dug
at least twice,as wide as the
container or football width,
but the depth should be a tad
less than the height of the soil
around the container-grown
plant or the balled and

to plant these items too

runners in March 2006. Since
then, he has kept an online
diary of his experiences at
The blog is called "26
"I have made running part
of my lifestyle for more than
25 years," says an early
Loftus blog entry.
"I have found running to
be extremely beneficial in
operating a business. Now
my running will have a
uniquely different purpose."
Loftus said it's been
rewarding being on the
ground level watching the
26.2 with Donna take off.
More than 7,000 participants
are expected for the race,
which will be staged, for the "'
most part, at the Beaches.
Signed race posters and a
collection of "Marathon
Strokes" prints will be avail-
able for purchase today at

Ocean 60 and at the
marathon's race expo next
week at the Morocco Shrine
All frames for the
"Marathon Strokes" paint-
ings were donated by
Sunshine Frames of
Jacksonville Beach.
Loftus, who serves on the
board of directors' for the
Beaches Area Historical
Society, said he has always
used running and surfing as
a means of expression.
The Donna Hicken
Foundation gave him a new
creative outlet, merging his
love for running with his
interest in non-profit volun-
teer work.
"To find the time to paint
on your own behalf is hard,"
saida.Loftus, who is married
with two children.
"This forced me to do that.
And there is a benefit. It's
not just a selfish effort."

Brightman: Tried and true formula


Cont. from B-1
Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom
of the Opera," Brightman has
carved out a musical niche
that finds her combining the
improbable elements of opera,
broadway tunes and pop/the-
atrical rock music.
Released last week,
"Symphony" is Brightman's
first studio release since 2003's
"Harem. While not as pop-ori-
ented as "Harem" or 1993's
"Dive," neither is
"Symphony" as devoted to
opera and Broadway as 2001's
The style and arrangements
of the majority of the songs
will sound immediately famil-
iar to fans, though there are a
few nice touches here again,
that slight leaning toward
something new.
Along with the aforemen-
tioned "Fleurs Du Mal," a
standout on "Symphony" is "I

Will Be With You (Where The
Lost Ones Go)," a strong
power ballad featuring KISS
vocalist Paul Stanley.
And while Brightman is, in
fact, sticking to her tried and
true formula, that formula
does serve her well.
"Storia D'Amore," for exam-
ple, would fit in on just about
any other album by
Brightman; that doesn't lessen
the fact that it's being sung to

perfection by one of the finest
voices in music today.
But even the best singers
can make the musical equiva-
lent of a pratfall, and
Brightman makes a doozy
with the album's closer,
"Running" a quirky mess
that sounds like a cross
between "Never-Ending Story"
and "Total Eclipse of the
Heart" before self-destructing
into operatic oatmeal.
Brightman's voice definitely
makes "Symphony" worth lis-
tening too.
But you just might find
yourself wishing that she or
long-time producer Frank
Peterson had been willing to
deliver on the promise that
"Fleurs Du Mal" hints at.
It sure seems that there's a
great gothic/industrial album
in her somewhere, clamoring
to be released on an unsus-
pecting world.

Matheson: The same soil dug from the hole goes back into it

Cont. from B-1
new dirt to the surrounding
roots of the new plant.
Settling can make the plant
go too deep and over time,
many plants become rotten at
the roots. The objective is to
make a wide area of soft,
inviting soil so the roots are
encouraged to grow horizon-
Reminder: The same soil
that was dug from the hole
goes back into it, with no
additives of any kind. Why?
Because research has shown
that because the plants really
love the additional goodies
that we used to go into the
hole, their roots stayed in that

hole in a tight ball, not want-
ing to venture into the other-
wise, lousy soil.
What happens over time is
that the tree/shrub starts to
die, and when the homeown-
er finally digs it up, he finds
that the roots are all circled
and tightly bound to one
another making for a very
weak root system. The feeder
roots have not ventured any-
where to find naturally-pro-
vided nutrients and thus,
there is poor root support for
the plant, resulting in a weak
plant which quickly dies.
By using the lousy soil that
we have, the plant actually
adjusts to it, and the good

amendments like compost,
manure, etc, can be placed on
top of the finished planting so
they slowly filter into the soil,
feeding the new roots and
encouraging them to spread.

Equally important is the
daily watering of these new
plants. It must be done at the
soil level by a slowly dripping
hose; usually two hours a day
for 2-3 weeks will be adequate

in getting the roots "partially-
Overhead watering will not
do it.

Piece of the


BMW 3 Series with Run-flat tires
Leave it to the company of ideas to help create the best spare tire of all an unnecessary one. With Run-flat tires, standard
on the BMW 3 Series, we've made changing a flat tire on the side of the road a thing of the past. Thanks to integrated
reinforcements, if these tires ever experience a loss of air pressure, they continue to maintain their shape and full use. In fact,
they can be driven for up to 150 miles at reduced speeds. So now when you look in the trunk, all you'll find is less weight and
more cargo room. To experience firsthand how great Ideas like these live on to become ultimate driving machines, visit your
local BMW dealer for a test drive.
