Saturday's 25-21 state championship loss to Tampa Plant. Nease principal Linda Thomson is in
the background. The Panthers finished the season 14-1 overall.

Winning state is tough;

keeping title even tougher

"lWhen they look back at
that 9-1 season, they don't
ask who the hine were." -
Gen. Robert Neyland
ill Bates played on three
Super Bowl champi-
onship teams as a mem-
ber of the Dallas Cowboys,
but he never suited up in a
state championship game
during high school.
Frankie Franklin. played in
a state championship game
as a senior at Sandalwood
High, but his team lost by
less, than a touchdown.
Winning a state title in
high school football is, for
the most part, something
that only comes around once
in a lifetime.
Nease High School, where
Bates and Franklin coach
football, won the elusive
gridiron prize in 2005 and
played for title again last
Saturday in Miami.
But the top-ranked
Panthers (14-1, Class 4A No.
1) fell to No. 5 Plant High of
Tampa 25-21 in the 4A title
game at Dolphin Stadium.
Nease was bidding to
become the first Jacksonville-
area public school team to
win back-to-back state
It was a lofty goal.
Only one other
Jacksonville-area public
school (Raines, 1997) has
won a state football champi-
onship since the state play-
offs began in 1963.

Winning state in football
at the high school level is a
monumental feat. Repeating
is even more extraordinary.
"Everyone wants what
you've got. That's why it's
easier to get there than to
stay there," former Pensacola
Escambia High football
coach Dwight Thomas said
Saturday after the Nease-
Plant title game.
"lust to go undefeated in a
season is amazing in itself."
Thomas should know. In
1984 and 1985, he coached
back-to-back state title teams
at Escambia, where his teams
went 12-2 and 13-1 overall.
His best player, Dallas
Cowboy great Emmitt Smith,
set the state record for all-
time rushing yardage.
Last year, Nease, behind
the state-record-setting
exploits of quarterback Tim
Tebow, went 13-2 and
claimed its first state crown.

This season, the Panthers
of Tampa Plant supplanted
Nease as the 4A champion
behind the equally impres-
sive arm of quarterback
Robert Marve, who broke
two of Tebow's state bench-
Plant finished undefeated
this season, becoming the
first Tampa-area school, pub-
lic or private, to win a state
grid title since 1969.

It was Northwestern's third
state crown and the Greater
Miami area's 16th overall.
Why do some sections of
the state win more state
titles in football than others?
Density of population is
one reason why Miami
schools triumph so often.

Panhandle and in many rural
sections of the state domi-

Roads: Roscoe study prompted improvements at Canal, Landrumm Lane

Marcy Silkebaken and Santa share a laugh Monday at the Palm Valley Community
Association meeting.

All the buzz

Continued from A-1
. Stephenson summarized some
road projects begun or planned in
the Palm Valley and Ponte Vedra
area, as follows:
A right turn lane will be con-
structed on Corona Road at the
intersection of State Road AIA. The
project was recently rebid because
of a change order proposal.
Improvements to the intersec-
tion of Roscoe Boulevard and
Canal Boulevard will begin early in
2007. For 1,000 feet around the
intersection, the road will have "a
curb and gutter look," Stephenson

$1.8 million mosquito choppermulled

What is the best way to kill
swarms of pesky, bloodsucking
mosquitoes living in the most
remote areas of St. Johns
It's not industrial size cans of
bug spray or giant fly swatters.,
According to some staff and
elected commissioners for the
Anastasia Mosquito Control
District, the solution starts
with a helicopter.,
The board of commissioners.
for the Mosquito Control
District will meet Thursday
night to discuss the purchase
of a $1.8 million helicopter so
that it can conduct regular aer-'
ial; sprays of mosquito popula-
tions in the county's swamps.
Two sitting commissioners
say the technology upgrade is
necessary for quickly treating
outbreaks: of mosquito-born
diseases such as. West -.Nile
Virus. ,
Others especially two
newly elected commissioners -
"It's absurd," said John
Sundeman, who was elected to
the board last month'.
Sundeman has spoken out
vehemently about what he
calls frivolous spending on the
part of the Mosquito Control

missioner, Teanne Moeller,

Without finalized details
such as where the helicopter
will be stored, who will fly it
and hoW much it will cost to
maintain it, Sundeman said he
thinks busing a helicopter is a
mistake. .
Furthermore, Sundeman said
in a recent interview, it makes
no sense to spray mosquito.
populations in remote areas of
the county that cannot even be
reached by vehicle or by foot.
SAccording to Sundeman,
most mosquitos species fly no
more than one mile, from
where they were hatched, so
those swamp populations
would stay put.
Gina LeBlanc, a spokesper-
son for the Mosquito Control
District, said that' statistic .is
not always true.
"Mosquitoes. don't staying
one place," LeBlanc said.
Depending on the species,
she said some can fly as far as
five miles.
And in windy, hurricane
conditions. mosquitoes can be
carried for miles, bringing dis-

ease-infested pests closer to
heavily populated areas. ,
The last reported mosquito-
related death. in. St. Johns
County was in 2004 when an
individual died of West Nile
Virus, LeBlanc said.
That same year, the
Mosquito Control District
requested ah emergency spray,
by their contracted spraying
company, Clark Mosquito
Because several other coun-
ties simultaneously experi-
enced outbreaks, the company
took two weeks to respond,
LeBlanc said.

blood tests on chickens at 10
stations throughout the coun-

three seconds of raising the

"What gets lost in the

said Saturday.
"Last year when we played
in this game, we thought it
was a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity because that's
what traditionally happens
unless you're a private

"In this tournament, there
is only one team that leaves
happy and that's the champi-

Letters to the editor:

Life-saving help is

needed for troops

To the editor:
Review of the documenta-
tion of the work of the Iraq
Study Group is needed to bet-
ter understand this letter. The
Study group report was given
to President Bush Dec. 6, 2006.
This report was released to the
national media the same day
when it was made available to
the public. A life saving plan
was outlined by the study
group. The plan consists of a
document of 142 pages sum-
marizing conditions in Iraq
and in the Middle East as a
whole. .It suggests options for
addressing the conditions in
the Middle East.
The Iraq Study Group con-
sists of five Republicans and
five Democrats co-chaired by
Republican James Baker and
Democrat Lee Hamilton. All
members are public servants
with experience in world
affairs. The charter of the
group was to study the condi-
tions that have evolved in
Middle East over the past five
or six years. From that study
the group was expected to
develop options that could
provide direction for the
United States. Options would
also be supplied to present to
national and political entities
in the Middle East. Options
would be suggested for all
nations that could contribute
to the world security that is the
ultimate overall objective.
Bringing the troops home
alive and without injury quick-
ly is the immediate goal for the
United States. Every life saved

is one more family, one more
community that will be able to
give thanks. The honor of the
service personnel involved is
protected at all times. All
actions during resolution
reflect bipartisan cooperation.
Protection of the political posi-
tions of all public servants is
not a consideration except as
the positions support bringing
the troops home alive.
Support of area congressmen
is required. Congressmen
Ander Crenshaw and John
Mica have intimate knowledge
of the Middle East situation.
These men have reported the
results of their visits several
times during the hostilities.
They reported that they have
intimate understanding of
Middle East affairs through
personal observation and as a
result of their party affiliation.
Crenshaw and Mica still
need public support as they
seek to help the president in
understanding and imple-
, meeting the intent of the Iraq
Study Group report. Please
write letters of encouragement
to your congressman. You are
carrying out a life sa-ing plan
for the good our troops and for
the good of the world as a
Please support our troops.
Life saving help is needed with
deliberate haste.

JTB osprey is missed

Idiot drivers must get their due

rT o many idiots on the
road these days. Too many
drivers think they're the
guy on the -commercial who
kisses his wife goodbye, then
parachutes from his mountain-
top home to his expensive SUV
below and roars away in a cloud
of dust. Or the bozos in all those
stupid zoom-zoom commer-
cials. You know the type. Can't
stay in one lane. Places to go,
people to annoy. They jump in
and out of traffic like kids at a
swimming pool and still end up
just one car length ahead of
where they started. Yahoo!
What we need is a better way
to identify' and deal with knuck-
lehead drivers. Florida should
implement a new driver's
license classification lust for
them. How about a Class I dri-
ver's license? I being for Idiot.
Certain rights and privileges
would accrue to a Class I driver's
licensee. With a Class I license,
you'd have the right to drive
below the posted speed limit at
all times; the right to drive dur-
ing daylight hours 'only; the
right not to use the left-hand
lane; the privilege of not tailgat-
ing the driver in front of you
and the privilege of not using
your high beam switch as a
strategic weapon. 1Above 'all,
you'd have the right to have
your Class I license yanked
upon one infraction.
The cop.who stops a Class I
licensee would have the author-
ity to stop the next 12 passersby.
Those 12 motorists would be
your jurors. The cop would read
the charges' and instruct the
jury to find you guilty, which
they'd cheerfully do because
they want to get to .work on'
time. Your driving peers, guided
by the wisdom of the arresting


officer, would decide your pun-
ishment and sentence you
immediately. At a minimum,
you'd have to spend six months
riding a unicycle like the clown
you are. Severe offenses could
merit lifetime confinement to a
carpool full of people with
morning breath, gas and boring
stories about their grandkids.
No appeals.
Class I Driver's Licenses
would be issued to ,the follow-
ing kinds of drivers:
Left hand lane homestead-
ers. You don't win 40 acres and
a mule, pardner, but here's a big.
red I for trying; jackass.
Cases of DWHD (Driving
While Holding Dogs)- especial-
ly that rare breed of idiot who
tries to turn using one arm
while cradling poochie in the
other. You get the scarlet letter
and go to the doghouse with
bars on the windows.
Drivers who talk on cell
phones and eat at the same
time. A big red I and a bad case
of Montezuma's Revenge,
buddy. By the way, the next rest
stop's closed.
The guy who activates a
turn signal just as he turns. Tell

me something I don't already
know, Einstein. A red I and a car
without a passing gear for you.
Drivers who park backwards
in parking lots and garages.
Wow. Eighteen separate maneu-
vers to get into that spot while
you caused a traffic jam in the
garage. Way to go, hero. A
boarding pass for the next red I
flight and a car that doesn't go
in reverse.
Drivers who drive with their
'parking lights on. Look up the
word park, genius. If you use
only your parking lights, does
that mean you only want to be
seen a little bit? A red-letter day
to you and a car with the park-
ing light switch perma-glued to
the headlamp switch.
Drivers who race by when
there's no one behind you, then
cut you off and abruptly turn at
the next street. If you have the
big red I on your DL, this one's
a hanging offense.
Reading, drivers. I saw a
woman on 1-95 reading a
Stephen King -novel on her
steering wheel. King writes hor-
ror stories. This dim bulb acts
'them but. Step up to the podi-
um and get your big red prize,

help to keep

past alive

F following is a selection of I
memories from my *
Christmases past:
'Twas the night before -
Christmas. My late wife Lucy
and I had moved to
Jacksonville the previous I
September. She had never '
before been away from her
New Jersey home and family at .
Christmas time, so she was
pretty homesick. We only had .
a few days off from work, and I
suggested we drive to Miami
Beach. When we arrived at the
motel, we found presents from
the management: candy, shav-
ing lotion, perfume, etc. That I
raised our spirits considerably,
as did the bottled spirits I'd I
brought along. I
Afterward, in bathing suits, t
we went out to the beach, but I
she declined to join me in the I
surf. I emerged quickly from [
the surprisingly chilly ocean
singing "Am I Blue?" She I
laughed. Her morale was fully ^
up again.
My spouse used to tell me
about the Christmas Eve when
she was very young and, hav- I
ing been tucked in her second-
floor bed, she broke curfew. I
Sneaking to the stairway, she
peeked down at the Christmas
tree. There, she would swear,
she saw a white-bearded man
all dressed in red. Scared of
being caught, she scampered
back to her room. Her dad
always denied involvement.
The plot thickened on a
much-later Christmas morn-
ing. Our son, Eric, is now a for-
mer Marine but then was a tiny
rug roamer learning to march.
He and we went out to check
on the milk and cookies he had
placed on the porch deck for
Santa. To our joint amazement,
the cookies and milk were
gone, and apparently the glass
hadn't been upset, indicating
to us that the consumer was
human. There were no wild
monkeys or other animals with
hands living in our Jax Beach
neighborhood. So yes,
Virginia, you can believe.
Another year, an elderly, out-
of-town couple spent
Christmas Eve with us. By this
time, we had two children, Eric
and Mary, who were in the pre-
teen stage and needed behav-
ior adjustment occasionally.
The woman had been a profes-
sional violinist and agreed to
perform for us. She was still
good, but age had taken its toll
and some of her notes were a
bit on the sour side. As she
completed the "concert" with
an off-key flourish, one of the
ornaments fell off the
Christmas tree. Our snickering
kids had to be shushed.
In conclusion: Yuletide fes-
tivities can be fantastic and
funny. Visiting the Bethlehem
grotto where Christ was
allegedly born, I was reminded
that the cute little fella in that
manger made it all possible.

American Legion Post 233 Auxiliary

publishes cookbook of Valley recipes

"A Palm Valley, Florida
Collection of Recipes" is the
title of a new cookbook
published by the American
Legion Post 233 Auxiliary in
Palm Valley.
The cookbook is dedicated
to "all of the men and
women veterans who have
served .the United States of
America in past wars and to
.those who are presently
serving to allow all of us to
be free."
Post 233, at 12 Wilderness
Road, is in the heart of Palm
Valley. The Post is some-
what of a local icon to those
who have been coming
there for years. "
Palm Valley is undergoing
so many changes and the
Post reminds many of the
way old Palm Valley used to
be, Auxiliary member
Cynthia Gaines said.
The Auxiliary is open to.
all women who'have hus-
bands, fathers, or grandfa-
thers who have served in
the military. The Auxiliary
raises funds for repairs and
items needed at the Post, for
other veteran's causes, and,
for local charities.


Publishing a cookbook as
a fundraiser was Gaines'
idea. The cookbook features
a section on Palm Valley
history along with recipes
from people affiliated with
Post 233.
"Some say the best steak
in town" is at our Friday,
night Steak Nights at the
Post, Gaines said. There are
also weekly Wednesday
night dinners and Sunday
morning breakfasts.
Volunteers, either Auxiliary
or Post members, donate the
food and handle the cook-
ing for these events.

to compile a cookbook from
all these great cooks," she

Latest gift from menopause is dizziness

M y latest gift from
menopause has
come galloping
through my life like an
armed rifleman.
I'm dizzy.
Before you start laughing
and ask me if I'm blonde (
the answer is yes and you
could be also for 50 bucks a
month) let me tell you that
the last gift I got from
menopause was mild hyper-
tension soothe dizziness
stuff kind of makes sense.
But this dizziness has
nothing to do with blood
pressure. It's the hold on to
your stomach, want to fall
on your face, but I only
drank water last night kind
of dizziness.
Being an old chick, dizzi-
ness does not make me
Blood does not make me
panic or faintness of breath
or a loose cannonball com-
ing through the side of the
house. I also have two


teenagers. Dizziness is like
one free beer. It's a little blip
on the radar screen.
At first, I thought I was
dizzy because I'm working
out so much. I'm talking
about gut-busting, bike-ped-
aling, weight-lifting, stretch-
ing, hopping, leaping,
sweating kinds of workouts
that have me limping to the
car like a prize fighter.
I've stepped up my physi-
cal workouts because my
back, which decided to rup-

ture one of its own discs,
has finally accepted the fact
that I will not have surgery,
and it is allowing me to get
better by working it to
This, of course, all hap-
pened as I was beginning
my first leap into -
nrenopause just two years
ago. Two years ago when I
only got dizzy if I lay down
too fast.
So this morning when I
talked to my doctor, who
also happens to be a friend -
well, she used to be a friend
- she had the same hilarious
blonde comments when I
told her this dizziness went
beyond anything I have
ever known, and I told her I
thought I had vertigo.
Well, of course that is
what it is, she told me.
Menopause-induced verti-
go. Can you believe this?

goodies that have been
handed to me by this lovely
change in life.
Usually,. I love change. I
write about it all the time. I
embrace it on a personal
level. I encourage it in my
children, but this vertigo
business is 'just too much.
Tonight I am supposed to
go to a two-.hour yoga ses-
sion with my daughter. It's
the kind of sweat until you
drop yoga class that cleanses
you on the inside and on
the outside.
I am now, two hours
before class, trying to figure
out how I will! even be able
to stand in the class, let
alone stand or. my head or
whatever she makes us do.
If worse comes to worse, I
will just sit back in and
sweat in place.
No doubt I'll be dizzy, and
surely, it will be right dur-
ing a hot flash.

Nease appearance m

titlegame not tainted

a pretty big deal around
these parts when news broke
last month that the Nease
football program was being
sanctioned by the Florida
High School Athletic
Association for violations
relating to a transfer player.
Two assistant coaches were
dismissed, the school's entire
athletic department was
placed on five years' proba-
tion and the FHSAA hit
Nease with a record $20,000
fine. Other punishments
included barring the Panthers
from spring or fall jamborees,
from appearing on television
and from traveling out of
state to play.
In a nutshell, FHSAA offi-
cials penalized one Panthers
assistant coach for offering a
job to the transfer player's
father, and another assistant
for providing a place for the
player and his father to live,
plus driving the kid to and
from practice. The organiza-
tion concluded the actions
were not "inducements," .but
violated policy nonetheless.

Lots of folks were quick to
point the finger at Nease as a.
"renegade" football program
spinning out of control.
But that "scandal" pales in
comparison to some of what
was revealed last weekend at
the state high school football
Powerhouse Lakeland High
wrapped up the Class 5A
state title on Friday in an
epic game. The contest was
so big, highlights appeared
on ESPN news that night.
The Dreadnaughts were led
by running back Chris
Rainey who shredded the St.
Thomas Aquinas defense for
276 yards on 26 carries and
three touchdowns.
But Rainey entered the

<. a. NEASE: Earned trip to Miami

Continued from page Bl
the interview which found its
way to the Internet, the Polk
County School Board cleared
Lakeland's star running back
to play after a hasty "investi-
gation" concluded there was
no credible evidence that he
had accepted gifts. Well,
except for Rainey's gloating-
on-tape remark that "It's real-
I' nice to be me."
The FHSAA has said it will
launch its own inquiry, but
for now the Dreadnaughts
have a fifth state champi-
onship trophy to add to their
Following Nease's appear-
ance in the Class 4A title
game Saturday, Miami
Northwestern won the Class
6A state championship, led by
19-year-old running back
Anrwain Easterling, who was
arrested Thursday and
charged with lewd and lascivi-
ous battery stemming from
his admission to taking part
in consensual group sex with
a 14-year-old.
Despite the incident alleged-
ly having taken place in a
Northwestern High School
bathroom, principal Dwight
Bernard gave the green light
for Easterling to play in the
championship game.
There are those who will
lump Nease, Lakeland and
Northwestern into the same
heap and say, "Wrong is
wrong is wrong."

PANTHERS. Fall in state title game

Continued from page Bi
Stachitas (7 of 15 for 175
yards, 2 picks) rushed for the'
bulk of his team-high 96 yards
in the first half, while Zach
Tronti ran for 76 of his 88'
yards irn the second stanza.
"I wanted to keep Marve off,
the field by running the ball
more," said Howard, whose,
team outrushed Plant .188-90.,
"Ted's effort on-the go-.
ahead touchdown was great ,
stuff. Some guys might not
have finished the game after
the hit he took to his hip [in.
the third quarter]."
"Nease is tough," added
\\einer, who turned Plant into-
a 15-0 state champion after
posting a 3-7 record two years
ago. -..
"They plowed it down the
field in the second:half. We
knew we had to corral their
quarterback because he's such
a good player. Even though he
hiad his moments, I thought
we handled him pretty well."
Boqth quarterbacks tossed-
interceptions, but two poten-
tial Plant giveaways on the
game-winning drive will
haunt Nease in the offseason.
Senior Al Della Porta forced
a fumble on the kickoff that
Plant's Chris' Kuzdale recoy-

ered at his own 22.
Marve fumbled 11 plays
later on the Nease 4 after Ben
Cowell barred the ball loose.
Plant center Mike Walsh was
credited with the recovery.
Grant also had a potential
pick in the first quarter, but
dropped the ball inside Plaht's
30-yard line.
The difference maker:
,Winter's heads-up 2-point pass,
to-backl'up ullback Chris
-Hesson came after'a high-snap
from Walsh. .
'"We had our chances,"

added Cowgill, whose defense
allowed only three second-half
scores in five playoff games.'
"You have to give Plant,
credit. They executed and
made plays'when it counted."
Final Notes: 'Stachitas '
rushed for 1,130 yards and
passed for 2,51-4 in 15 starts.
He threw 29 TDs.versus 10
picks. Tronti finishes with a
team-high 1.563 yards and 18
pushingg TDs. Grant had 10
picks this season. The
Panthers return nine starters,
including kicker Zack Cooper.

Some will say every big-
time program cheats in one
form or another and Nease,
Lakeland and Northwestern
just happened to get caught.
Rainey and Easterling prob-
ably shouldn't have played in
their respective title games. If
the FHSAA eventually strips
the Dreadnaughts of their
2006 championship, lots of
players who had nothing to
do with receiving gifts or
money will suffer a loss.
But those who say Nease's
appearance in the Class 4A
title game is tainted because
of what occurred with the
transfer player are wrong. The
penalties passed on by high
school football's governing
body did not include a ban on
postseason play.
Take that as an indication
that despite FHSAA officials'
pronouncements that Nease
had committed "major viola-
tions," the infractions really
didn't amount to much more
than lapses in judgement.
Nease-haters can take solace
in the fact that the two coach-
es involved paid the price by
losing their jobs. The school is
paying the price not only in
terms of the $20,000 fine, but
in the embarrassment of being
on probation until 2012.
Yet despite the distractions
and attention that follow a
team defending its state title,
Panthers players earned their
trip to Miami on the field. As
it should be.

from the Hughes Financial Group

Whether you're already
retired or seriously planning for
retirement, the team of finan-
cial service professionals at the
Hughes Financial Group in
Jacksonville Beach has valuable
knowledge they'd like to share ',
with you. They also understand -
the financial challenges you ",
as a retiree or retiree wannabe
- might face as you chart your
financial, course and develop a s ""
game plan for your future. _
As, an independent and local-
ly owned firm, the team at the
Hughes Financial Group stands
ready to help you make intelli-
gent and informed decisions
about your finances. The driv- ... :.'
ing force behind the team is-
father Neil Hughes, a Raymond
James Financial Planner and
Investment Advisor ...; *
Representative and a gradu-
ate of the United States Military ..' .
Academy, West Point.
' Daniel "Dan" Hughes, a' ,
Virginia Tech business graduate, .,.. .i-H
.PLANNERTM professional, and With more than 60 years
Chartered Financial With more than 60 years c
Consultant. Dwayne Hughes, a at the your financial game p
business finance graduate of the tune your financial game
University of North Florida, is a Hughes, Dan Hughes and
NERTM professional, and Jason Hughes is a Raymond James
Financial Planner arnd Investment Advisor Representative
and finance graduate of the University of Georgia.
The Hughes team has a combined 67 years of financial
and investment experience.
"Financial planning goes beyond advice on investments,"
said Neil. "It's the development and implementation of an
integrated and coordinated plan for achieving your overall
goals and dreams through a mixture of wealth accumula-
tion, risk management and insurance, retirement and dis-
tribution planning, tax planning, estate planning and -,for
business owners and execs business planning."
When helping clients design a personalized financial
plan, they get down to the basics. "Basically, people invest
for two reasons they're already in retirement and wait
money now or they're seriously.planning for retirement and
want money later," Neil said. "So in reality that includes
almost everybody and if they're .not planning for retire-
ment, they should be!"
What's one of the biggest mistakes investors make?
Making investment decisions based on emotion, rather
than facts, Neil said. "It's difficult not to let' emotions inter-
fere, so you have to have a disciplined approach that will
allow you to make investment decisions based on supply
and demand rather than emotion," he-said. :'That's where
most individuals and professionals get in- trouble not
being able to separate decision-making from the emotion."
Another challenge investors face in today's financial
arena is not a lack of, but rather an abundance of informa-
tion, according to Dan Hughes. "A lot of people are afraid to
make moves that they think are suitable investment moves
because they actually have too much information, and too
much information can add to the complexity of making a
sound decision," he said. Neil has a name for this too-much-
info mode: Paralysis by analysis. -
To help their clients avoid the pitfalls of emotion-based'
decision-making, round-the-clock numbers-watching and
paralysis by analysis, they use a different strategy, one
which helps benefit their clients in the long run, according

to Dan. "We help our clients avoid yet another big mistake
that trips up many investors not knowing which side of
the market to be on at any given time," he said.
"For example, we need to ask the question should we
be in a wealth-accumulation mode or in a wealth-preserva-
tion mode?" Dan said, "And this is not just a function of
novice investors not knowing, because a lot of professional,
investors don't know either."
To help answer this question, they use an important tool.
"We use technical analysis, which is not paralysis by analy-
sis but something most of us learned in Econ 101 in college
or high school supply and demand," Dan said. "If more
people are looking to buy, the price usually goes up, and we
have different gauges to determine if that's occurring in.the
market as a whole ."
"Somewhere you have to separate what's important from
what's not important," added Neil. "The use of technical
analysis helps us do that and at the same time remove emo-
tions from those decisions."'
The concept is not as complex as it sounds. Dan compares
it to football. "It's a matter of knowing whether you're on
defense or offense," he said. "If you're on offense, you're
trying to score, and if you're on defense you're trying to
protect the score you already have and hopefully get the
ball. back and run offensive plays again to increase your

It's the most exciting time ,
S of the year but also the
busiest. How can you host
. a spectacular holiday get-
together and still have time to
enjoy your guests?
Keep it simple. Build your.
refreshments around two pop-
ular and reliable party
favorites, wine and cheese.
Make up easy hors d'oeuvres
and plate them with flair.
Start with a no-fuss cheese
tray, and build your menu
around it. Imported cheeses
from Ireland, widely available
from the supermarket, add
affordable elegance.
To accompany your menu,
serve guests several different.
wine varietals to satisfy every
taste. Look for easy-drinking
wines that offer great quality
and value, such as those com-
ing from Australia.

A cheese tray is simple to
prepare and always welcome.
Arrange a selection of delec-
table cheeses, such as
Kerrygold's Dubliner, Aged
Cheddar, Blarney Castle and
Swiss on a large platter or
wooden board. Serve with a
scattering of toasted nuts,
fruits and a basket of
baguettes or crackers.
You don't have to make an
extra trip to a specialty cheese
store for your party fare..
Imported Kerrygold cheeses

products comes from gAss-fed
cows roaming freely, on small
family farms in Ireland; the

corkscrew by choosing wines

tion to their convenience,
these wines are extremely

with a wide range.'of holiday
Screw caps offer the added
benefit of capturing the wine's
peak flavor without the risk of
spoilage from a faulty cork.

cap closure is the way of the
future because it preserves the
wine the way the winemaker-
intended it to taste," says
