way to eye
by LAURA FOWLER
The St. Johns County
Sheriff's Office launched a pro-
gram this week that will enable
parents to extend a watchful
eye over their young drivers.
S.T.O.P.P.E.D., or Sheriffs
Telling Our Parents and
Promoting Educated Drivers, is
a program that allows parents
to register the vehicles of their
teen drivers so that they can be
notified when, where and why
the young driver is stopped by
a police officer.
"I think it's going to be very
popular because it just
makes, perfect sense," Sheriff
David Shoar said in a tele-
phone interview Tuesday.
For parents, it means finding
out about a traffic ticket before
all those fliers and pamphlets
about driving school arrive in
"We're finding most
teenagers do not go home and
tell mom and dad that they got
stopped," Shoar said.
It also means being immedi-
ately notified through the sher-
iff's dispatch office if their
child is in an accident.
Each year more than 3,000
drivers between. .:.6_.,ai .. '21
years old die in the United
States as a result of car crashes,
according to the National
Highway Safety Traffic
In St. Johns County, young
drivers- -represent 3 percent of
all drivers in fatal crashes and
23 percent of all drivers
involved in personal injury
automobile crashes, according
to the St. Johns County
Like the more in-depth driv-
ers education program that
began over the summer, Shoar
said, he started this program to
help reduce the number of
teens involved in accidents.
"I'll be signing my daughter
up for it," he said Tuesday.
Shoar said the program is not
unique. Other law enforcement
agencies throughout the coun-
try have used similar programs.
St. Johns County's program
is completely voluntary for par-
ents and is for drivers younger

Tree-shopping season starts

TodayI- the day after
Thanrksgiving is consid-
ered' the biggest shopping
day of the year.
.It's also,when business
really begins to pick up on
Christmas tree lots, which
began to pop up as early as
the end of last week.
Severt's Fraser Firs, on the
corner of County Road 210
and State Road AlA in
Ponte Vedra Beach, set up
its red and white striped
tent Monday, after receiving
a surprisingly early ship-
ment of trees from North
Carolina on Saturday.
"We did start a little bit
early [this year]," said Adam
Graham, who works at the
Christmas tree lot.
"But we like to get started
before everybody else."'
Severt's is perhaps the
earliest tree lot to open in
Ponte Vedra and is likely to
be one of only a few places
where Christmas trees will
be sold in Ponte Vedra.
Trees at the lot range
from "table top" specimens,
which are only a few feet
tall, to Fraser firs that reach
12 feet in height.
Prices typically range by
size, from about $20 to
$200, depending on the size
and type of tree.
The Fraser firs are the
most popular, according to
Kevin Varnadoe, who runs
the Ponte Vedra lot as well
as several others through-
Varnadoe said the current

"We have many exceptional,
really absolutely wonderful
projects," said science teacher
Helen Seymour, in her fifth
year of coordinating the
"Mark Lewis, from the [St.
Johns] county [School District]
office, came by. His comment
was if every school could just
interest their children in doing
more of the science fair stuff,
they would be able to get a bet-
ter understanding of the
nature of science, which is like
a fourth of the FCAT require-
ments," she said.
"They really want the kids
to learn about the scientific
process. And in doing these
projects, they work through
that and learn a lot, a lot, a lot

advancing include 14 individ-

Seymour said this year's sci-
ence fair was bigger and better
and buffered by volunteers
from the community, includ-
ing 35 judges.
"It's been a real concerted
effort from the whole commu-
nity'. I couldn't do it without
them," said Seymour, who sin-
gled out Dr. Nancy Yurko, dean
of Liberal Arts on FCCJ's South
Campus, for her support.
The Landrum students who
advanced either won or fin-

To the editor:
As one of many concerned
residents of Neptune Beach, I
want to urge everyone to join us
on Nov. 30 at 6:30 at the
Neptune Beach City Hall to
show Wal-Mart we say NO to
their big-box store and tell local
officials we want them to reject
any compromise deal that
brings the unwanted super cen-
ter to our community.
A 24-hour destination store is
far too intense and would gen-
erate excessive noise and over-
whelming traffic on our already
congested roads. There are also
the environmental issues and
concerns caused by parking lot
rain storm run off and excessive
water and sewer usage, not to
mention increased crime. We
do not want property values
and the quality of living
decreasing, while taxes increase,
due to a big-box store being
constructed on the proposed
Atlantic Boulevard site in our
neighborhood. This type of
store does not fit in with our
"bedroom community" and the
reason we chose to live here.
.We need appropriately scaled
businesses that compliment our
small town charm. Please join
your "island" neighbors on the
30th to show Wal-Mart this
fight is not over.

Library needs upgrade
At 25,450 square feet, the Beaches Branch Library is less
than half the size of another nearby facility. It also has less
than half the computers of a neighboring library and a
much smaller budget for part time library employees.
Yet more than a quarter of a million visitors came to the
Third Street library during the first nine months of this year
that's better than 80 percent of the visitors that went to
the newer, better equipped branches nearby.
The numbers, all of which were furnished by the
Jacksonville library system, make it clear that the 20-year-
old Beaches branch needs attention now. The Beaches
Branch was a great addition to our community when it
opened in 1986 replacing a library that was literally
crammed into borrowed space in Jacksonville Beach's for-
mer community center.
The Beaches has grown tremendously since then and
many things have changed.
In 1986, the only surfing being done at the Beaches was
offshore. Now library patrons clamor for computer space to,
surf the Internet.
As the president of the Friends of the Library has said, "lit-
eracy today comes in many forms."
Another thing which was changed since 1986 is the
amount of tax revenue that flows from here to the county.
The inequities continue to grow between what the Beaches,
with its rapidly appreciating tax base, pay into county cof-
fers and what is returned here in county, expenditures.
Some of that revenue should be returned now to improve
the library, a county facility, so that it can adequately serve
the Beaches. Many volunteers work hard to make the library
a key asset for the community. But it is past time for the
county to ante up funds to improve the aging, slightly shab-
by and very inadequate facility

with a cloudless sky, a warm,
gentle breeze and bright sun-

felt as if my van was gliding
across the water on its own.
Seagulls called from overhead as
the ferry shared the river with

had no doubt this brief ride on
the ferry contributed to the
excitement of the day and
would be included in their
memories of it.
A family visiting our area
from the Midwest also enjoyed

They snapped photographs to
preserve the moment as their

To the editor:
It seems everyone has their
opinion of what has hap-
pened regarding the FHSAA
sanctions against the Nease
High School football pro-
gram. These opinions, howev-
er, cannot be based on facts
because everyone involved
has been "silenced" for one
reason or another.
The superintendent has
silenced the principal; who
has subsequently silenced the
Booster Club; and the lawyers
have silenced their clients,
The FHSAA Web site has
been the only source of infor-
mation, and what is stated
there could use some explana-
tion. An athlete was induced
to enroll after he was
enrolled? The people
involved Oiave not been
allowed to present their story,
and I know there is one.
As a result, much has been
written about Nease's football
program without the facts
getting in the way. The opin-
ions of various local' coaches
that have been defeated by
Nease (e.g., St. Augustine,
Ridgeview) have been print-
ed. Of course, in their minds
the only way they could have
been beaten was if Nease had
violated the rules.
So what do I know? I know
Nease's secret to success is the
kids. Ponte Vedra is fortunate
to have two youth football
programs, Pop Warner and
the Jr. Development Program.
These programs have over
300 kids participating. Nease's
football players largely come
from these programs, not
from transfers. As a former Jr.
Development coach, I know
first hand that we have 19
kids that are playing in the
Nease program and Pop
Warner has many as well.
[ also know that it's not the
weight room that makes the
team; it's the player that uses
the weight room. These kids
work hard, spending many
early morning summer hours
in the weight room.
I also know it's the volun-
teers that help make Nease
successful. It's the many thou-
sands of volunteer hours that
parents put in behind the
scenes to make the program
run. Those selling T-shirts and
working in the concessions
stand help bring in money to
pay for uniforms.
It's all those that painted
the stadium last summer and
those that help with the
games. It's all the fathers that
volunteer their time to coach
in the youth leagues as well as
on the Nease team.
The two Nease coaches
released both [have] sons on
the team. I know these coach-
es, and they would never
jeopardize the success of their
own son's team by doing
something that they under-
stood to be against thie rules.
So, it seems that I know a
lot more than I thought.
O ur weather's getting
chilly, so more chili
pots are steaming. It
was seasonally appropriate,
then, that I was asked recently
to be the judge for a chili
cook-off contest held at the
Jacksonville Beach Women's
Club by the Awakening Heart
Ministries (AHlM), a local reli-
One of my main qualifica-
tions for such a function is that,
whenever I cook for others,
they always pray before they
eat. Another reason for having
me as the judge is that I truly
like Chili. I spent a week there
once and thought the capital,
Santiago, was a very nice city.
Despite my outstanding cre-
dentials, I had difficulty decid-
ing on the winning entry. Of
course, each 'sample was in a
separate dish. I believe if they
were all dumped in one dish, it
would have been even harder to
pick the winner. Naturally, each
dish was numbered, no name
shown. That way, I wouldn't
know whose entry it was and
thereby be able4to- determine
who I should sue if I got sick.
No, seriously, all the samples
were delicious, sol was stumped
about designating the one. to
get the blue ribbon.
I considered just counting the
beans in each bowl, because I
love. beans. Then again,, that
.wo.ld .aot have: "bean". f4ir.
Another approach was to-select
the chili that generated the
loudest burp. 1I discarded that
idea -since one of the cooks
might have an advantage, hav-
ing been b6rn in Brussels or
some other place in Belchin.
Not to be too flippant, I con-
fess that, in the end, I relied
completely on my taste buds,
such as they are. I was pleased
to note that no one apparently
had used some weird ingredi-
ents that have found their way
into chili recipes over the years;
e.g., chocolate, peanut butter,
pineapple, coffee, honey, and so
Members of the group obvi-
ously value honesty and fair-
ness. I would bet my Bible that
nobody pulled a gag which I
heard surfaced in another chili
contest. The (im)practical joker
entered a pot of store-bought,
canned chili, and the entry won
first prize! I'm confident that no
fragments of can labels' were
found in any of the AHM chili
No doubt, also, the attendees
of the AHlM affair had their
hunger happily awakened by
the chili served. It's been hap-
pening for ages. Allegedly, the
last words of Kit Carson, fron-
tiersman, were, "Wish I had
time for just one more bowl of
chili." Hey, maybe there's chili

Vocal criticism of some Nease
fans in the stands must stop
as it is unfair to student athletes
To the editor:
I would like to express my concern over the
behavior of some fans at Nease football games.
For the most part, Nease has wonderful fans
.that come out and support the players, cheer-
ing them on no matter what. The school is
lucky to have such enthusiastic people there
week after week who love to watch the team
Unfortunately, there are a few people in the
stands that ruin the games for others with their
judgmental comments and negativity. Many of
the players' families and friends have noticed a
couple of people that feel it necessary to tear
apart players' performances. Those boys are out
on the field playing a sport they love. Not only
are these boys athletes, but they are students
who have other responsibilities. These young
mehn put a, lot oiln the line to play football
including physical injury.
In the Merritt Island game, three players were
hurt and more have been hurt in practice and
previous games during the season. Each and
every player has tremendous dedication to
their team and coaches.. Itis so horrible to hear
people in the stands make disparaging com-
ments about the boys if they do something the
slightest bit wrong. j' .. I ,
I imagine those boys feel pretty awful when
they make mistakes out there in front of all the
people that come to watch them. Why is is
that those select few "fans" must announce to.
everyone seated around them the child's mis-
take and proceed to make critical remarks?;
What self-righteous person thinks that player's
friends and family want to hear'other people
talk that way about them and criticize the team
True or False:
Rats carry as many as ten diseases.
as a whole?
We must all keep in mind while Nease has an
'outstanding football team, it is still a group of
high school boys that are not perfect.
These few individuals that have been causing
distress to players' friends and families often do
not themselves have children on the team. I
would like these people to think how they
would' feel if a group of people came and
watched their children for three hours all the
while passing condescending remarks about
their flaws. I find it very discouraging that
these "people are so self-centered and unkind
that they can't think that perhaps their nega-
tivity is unwanted. The boys are fighting to win
on the fields. Your abuse in the stands in
uncalled for and mean-spirited. Those of you
that, are causing a problem, I ask you two
things: First, what are you .so insecure about
that the remedy is to come to a high school
football game and pass judgment on 15 to 18-
year-olds? Second, if a group of players' families
can guess your identify just from hearing about
your ugly running narration of the game from
someone having the bad luck to sit within
earshot of you, isn't it time to direct your focus
To the fans. who are there every game sup-
porting our boys, we thank you. You are a huge
support of the team and the boys are truly
lucky to have that. To the other few who like
to,cut down the players, there is an old saying:
If you don't have anything nice to say don't say
anything at all.

Codes violations rise in JB,'
by LIZA MITCHELL
Jacksonville Beach code
inspectors are working to
reduce the number of viola-
tions by educating the com-
munity about the city's poli-.
cies regarding junk, Work per-
mits and tree removal.
Code Inspector Debbie
White said people are often
unaware that canvas carports,
canopies and "Pod" portable
storage containers on their
property are prohibited.
White said one of the most
common violations includes
junk ranging from aban-
doned, inoperable or partially
dismantled vehicles, and nui-
sances classified as junk,
trash, debris or other unsight-
Vehicles, whether or not
they are operational, are also
required to have a' valid tag
affixed to the vehicle. Signs,
however, are prohibited' by
the city's Land Development
White said vehicles are
tagged with an orange sticker
to notify owners of a violation
and a time frame to correct
the infraction before it 'is
towed at the owner's expense.
Parking and storage of
heavy vehicles such, as,
campers, .motor homes, large
commercial trucks and boats
over 20' in length on residen-
tial property also violates city
White said permits are
required to perform work on
structures including building,
electrical, plumbing, mechan-
ical, sign installation, 'addi-
tions, fences, sheds, windows,
driveways, brick pavers and
A stop work order requires
all work to cease until the nec-
essary permits are obtained.
Property owners are also cited
for completing work that was
not included in the permit.,
Zoning violations such as
building too close to property,
lines, exceeding lot coverage,
renting of illegal' dwelling
units and operating a business
in residential district are con-
sidered trouble areas, city
Property owners can also be
cited for lack of maintenance,
.unsafe conditions and over-
grown vegetation in both' resi-
dential and commercial, dis-
Permits are required before
a tree can be removed. Only
pine trees, palms and those
identified on 'a, list off nui-
sance trees can be removed
without a permit. Property
owners that remove protected
trees with a permit still must'

After twice being denied permission to expand, Lynch's Irish
Pub finally gained approval to add to its lacksonville Beach
The city's Board of Adjustment Tuesday granted a variance
for the pub at 514 1st Street North to add 1,500-square-feet in
lieu of the five required parking spaces.
General Manager Keith Doherty said the space will not
increase the pub's occupancy.
In the variance application, the size of the bathrooms and
the proximity of the dry storage area to a gas water heater were
listed as the reason for the variance.
"The space is much needed," Doherty said Wednesday. "It
will give us a chance to bring our bathrooms up to code. It will
be nice to have a real office. My office consists of a table at the
BOA member Keith Hall cast the sole vote against the vari-
ance, claiming that the expansion would increase the lot cov-
erage by 45 percent.
Jud Spence and Thad Moseley, who both own property in the
Central Business District, urged the board to deny the request
because public parking is at a premium, especially in the down-
Doherty said he believes the request was granted because the
expansion would not add to the patronage.
"I've not known of too many people who want to drink in
the toilet," he said. "It's not new construction. It is what it is."
A prior request to add 4,000-square-feet to construct new
restroom facilities with handicapped access, dry storage, office
and cooler space was denied because the proposal also includ-
ed an additional 2,100-square-feet of pub space to install a
third bar and add four new pool tables.
According to the city's guidelines, BOA members must deter-
mine if a variance request meets certain criteria for approval,
including the nature of the hardship.
The burden of proof is on the applicant to demonstrate the
Variances are not permitted for expansions to existing busi-
nesses that are "manifestly designed to attract new customers,"
according to city code.

There were three concepts
proposed for the medians

run through both 'Atlantic

The city of Atlantic Beach
opted for a combination of two
of the concepts and the part-

Affordable housing is
essential to Beaches
Saving affordable housing

to Carolyn Ettlinger, executive
director qf the Housing
Partnership of Northeast
.Ettlinger spoke at a Beaches
Business Association' meeting
Monday about the various pro-
grams the partnership offers to
the community and encour-'
aged business involvement.
The partnership was estab-
lished 14 years ago to address.
the broad spectrum of housing
needs in Duval County,
It now offers several different
services to benefit the commu-
nity such as a neighborhood
rehabilitation, program, a
home ownership center which

counseling, a community

Ettlinger encouraged busi-
nesses to participate in team-
building events such as "Paint
the Town," where multiple
groups consisting of 10 to 15
people help with the housing
repairs for a week in a specific
community each year.
Because the partnership is a
diverse reflection of people
from many areas of the

Pablo's Coordinator for the.
faith-based sports program.
The nationally recognized
program emphasizes Biblical
teachings and Christian values
along with sports skills.

opted to throw the ball and
build a substantial lead in the
first half, then get to what he
calls "Tronti time" and rely on

Then get your stash of
blankets, old sheets, newspa-

ient spot so you can hustle
to cover tender plants when
predictions for temperatures
in the 30's occur.
Tropical plants like
allemande, hibiscus, orchids,
poinsettias, some gingers,
newly-planted cold hardy
annuals, and some of the
more tender palms will need
protection from frosts.
However, some need protec-
tion even when the temp
drops to anything below 40.
Remember to remove the
coverings after morning ,
temperatures get above 40
or your plants will cook.
For those of you who will
be buying Christmas trees,
remember that the stands
that are providing protec-
tion for the trees with tents
or heavy tree canopy are the
best places to look.
Keeping in mind that
these trees were probably
cut back in late September,
they have been slowly dry-
ing out, so by the time they
are unwrapped here, they
are in dire need of a drink of

that on a daily basis, and

horizontal cut across the
trunk so that when you get
the tree home, you can
either put it in a water-filled
bucket until you are ready
to take it inside, or if imme-
diately taken indoors, your
tree stand should be the
type that holds water and
you can do fill it right away.
Keeping the tree from dry-
ing out and presenting a fire
hazard is the goal.
Extension Service has a cur-
rent list of U-Cut Christmas
Tree farms, so if that is your
idea, give them a call for the
locations and phone num-
bers before you head out.
Keep in mind that orce cut,
the tree will start its drying
process, so be sure and
either put it up immediately
or manage its time outside
so it gets sprayed a few
times a day with water, and
the bucket is always full
with fresh water.
Make a fresh cut to the
trunk just prior to bringing
it indoors; sap clogs the
pores preventing the uptake
of water and nutrients once
the tree is cut.
And, there is no research
that proves the addition of
sugar, or other magical
ingredients like baking soda,
vinegar, etc., etc. actually
make the tree flame retar-
dant or fresher. Just thought
I'd throw that in.
So many' folks, me includ-

trees, and 1,11 tell you I was
really reluctant to go that
route. I mean, how could a

as hypocritcal as it gets.

'building sts environment
Lionti building artist's environment
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
A flamingo rendition of
Groucho Marx'and a red hat
lady hang out near a bottle
tree in the front yard of a
local artist's house.
The yard is the beginning
of an "artist's environment,"
created by F. Caterina Lionti,
a Beaches abstract artist who
wanted to establish a place
that evokes happy feelings,
in part because of her hus-
band's cancer and for others
to enjoy, in general.
i'-ionti is not 'your typical
afrist. Much of her work,
which is mostly abstract, is
created on a computer using
a fractal, which is a geomet-
ric formula, according to
Lidnti. Although her work is
done on a computer, Lionti
equates the process to a dif-
ferent form of painting.
Using several computer pro-
grams, Lionti is able to layer
colors and "paint with light"
as she describes it.
She inputs the formula
into the computer and cre-
ates abstract images, full of
bold color and light. Her art
feels like an ebb between
light-hearted and mysterious
- much like she does.
For example, one of her
paintings, "Glass Worlds,"
actually,looks as if the float-
ing orbs in the painting are
glowing. The effect is other-
Perhaps that is because
many of Lionti's ideas are
inspired by her dreams.
"I get my ideas at 3 o'clock
in the morning," said Lionti,
who can't sleep on an idea
and feels compelled to work
when the thought strikes.
Oneiof her next projects
involves a sculpture that she
has seen repeatedly in a reoc-
curring dream which rotates
so she can see how it should
Her work today is often
inspired by the images and
cultures she has been sur-
rounded by in her travels.
Many of her pieces are
inspired by the water, which
she loves. For example, she
created "Bayou Mysteries"
from her memories of living
near the swamps in
Mississippi. The painting
evokes feelings of mystery
and intrigue with swirling
tendrils of dark color.
"The swamps fascinated
me," she said.
While some of her work
eludes to a more enigmatic
side of her personality,
Lionti has a playful and
She is currently creating an
"artist's environment," a
themed setting that artists
use to express ideas and
thoughts to the world. Some
artists create religious mon-
tages, for example, others,
such as Lionti take a more
"When people come here,
it'll make them smile," she
said. Her goal is to create a
happy place for she and her
husband to enjoy as well as
to spread happiness to oth-
When the environment is
complete, it will include a
"wall of wisdom," full of
quotes, a geodesic sphere,
covered in glass, and toilets
converted into mosaic chairs
for the front porch.
While Lionti wants her art
to bring some deep meaning
to people, she also likes to
make it fun, she said.

Eight ways I make my kitchen cook
Love to cook and am pretty
good at it, too. Dinner's on
the table every night at six
and no one leaves hungry.
But, what helps me most is
not the years I've spent refin-
ing my culinary skills, it's the
tools that I've built into the
kitchen that makes me the
most efficient and able to turn
out great-tasting food quickly.
See if these tips don't help
1. Large sink. The problem
with double sinks is that few
use the double-bowl wash and
rinse method anymore.
Today, a large one bowl sink
makes the most sense. In my
kitchen, I have one extra large
bowl with a small disposal
bowl and built-in drain board.
2. Spice storage. For season-
ings I use daily, I attached a
wall hanger next to the stove
and put my cooking spray,
favorite spices, salt and pepper
here. I even keep a bottle of
olive oil here so it's at the
3. More refrigeration.
When people complain about
the refrigerator, it's usually
because there's not enough of
it. An often overlooked option
is the single door "all refriger-
ator" and "all freezer."
Instead of the combination
unit, I have an individual
refrigerator and freezer in my
With these two units, I have
a whopping 35 square feet of
space instead of the usual 25
or so square feet of space
available in a combination
Best of all, I got a high-end
amount of storage with a reg-
ular.refrigerator price tag.
4. Go big. Recently I needed
a utensil holder but the ones
at the home center only held
about six items. So, I took a
spatula to my garden center to
size up a new utensil holder. I
bought a beautiful ceramic
pot to hold all my utensils.
Think about size in your
kitchen. You need items large
enough to suit your needs. If
you don't find what you need
off the rack, improvise or have
something custom made for
you. I had a giant platter cus-
tom made for me by The
Hairy Potters nvi that holds a
whole pound of cooked pasta.
Don't think custom is out of
5. Kitchen garden. Nothing
makes your good cooking sing
like fresh herbs and vegeta-
bles. I have a kitchen garden
that I couldn't live without.
Take the time to take your
kitchen outdoors and plant
some herbs and lettuces.
Nly kitchen garden consists
of mesclun lettuce, radishes,
dill, basil, thyme, shallots,
mint, and oregano.
6. Towel bar. If you're like
me, you're always looking for
a dishtowel to handle a hot
pan or to place a wet dish on.
Instead of hooks in a cabinet
door, install a small towel rail
on your island or cabinet.
7. Quality cookware. If
you're tired of scorching your
foods, try cast iron. Funny,
but this old stand-by is now
being favored by cooks like
Yes, it's extremely heavy
and that's what I don't like
about it, but it goes from'
stovetop to oven and doesn't
cost an arm and a leg. Even
simple combrnbad can be ".i
transformed from yellow
blandness to gustatory heights
with the crunchy-golden crust
cast iron makes.
8. Organization. Kitchen
organization makes every-
thing go easier. Whether it's a
cabinet over the dishwasher
where dishes can be unloaded
without walking or a well-
organized pantry, organization
will make you work less and
be more efficient in the
Even unsightly trashcans
can be put under the sink
with a pull-out trash can.
Pull out organizers and bas-
kets are extremely useful and
easy to retrofit into most cabi-
