rare Egyptian show

This work by an Ocean Palms student for the
Egyptian exhibit hangs at the Cummer Museum.

The intrigue of Egyptian cul-
ture and ancient history has
come to Jacksonville in an
exhibit opening today at the
Cummer Museum of Art and
The Temples and Tombs
exhibit, which continues
through March 18, highlights
some of the "star" artifacts
from The British Museum's
collection, according to Dr.
Neal Spencer, the assistant
curator in the Department of
Ancient Egypt and Sudan at
The British Museum.
The exhibit features 85 arti-
facts, including stone statues,
jewelry and art, which spans
thousands of years, according
to Spencer.
"The Cummer is making
history," said Director
Maarten van de Guchte. The
show at the Cummer is one of
only five such stops the exhib-
it will make in the United

In keeping with the theme
of Egyptian culture, students
from Ocean Palms and
Rawlings elementary schools
and Landrum Middle School,
as well as schools in the Duval
Beaches area, were educated
on the subject and produced
works based on the exhibit.
Some of their work is on dis-
play in the museum.
Their work is part of an out-
reach program, Future Artists
of the Beaches (FAB) Fest, that
the museum sponsors every
year to encourage elementary
students to appreciate the
value of art and get them
involved, according to Hope
McMath, director of educa-
Museum educator Rebecca
Hickey went to 10 Beaches
schools and taught Egyptian
culture and provided students
with the materials to make
relief sculptures and portraits.
The students were instruct-
ed to use symbolism and per-
sonal symbols. *

Wachovia blues heads toward resolution

Wachovia is trying to
close the final chapter in
the ongoing saga over wall
signs on its Palm Valley)
branch. ,
In August, the company
got the OK from
Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) for a
white wall sign, after more
than a year of battling
with .the committee over:I
the sign's size and color -
\Vachovia blue.
But the company is still
seeking approval for a sec-
ond identical sign on the
back side of the building,
which faces Couinty Road
ARC members turned
down WVachovia's request

for the second sign in
August, based on restric-
tions in the Ponte Vedra
Overlay District Code.
But Wednesday night, a
majority of ARC members
seemed to have changed
their minds and said they
had no objection to
another sign.
"I think Wachovia's
done their best to make
this work," ARC member
Bill Warnock said.
"I don't have an issue
with this."
ARC members did not
vote on the sign
Wednesday night. Their
objective was to pass on
their opinions to the St.
Johns County
Commission, which will
vote on a non-zoning vari-

ance for the sign at a
future meeting.
ARC member Marcy
Silkebaken was the only
voice of opposition. She
said allowing the second'
sign could lead to dozens
of similar requests by busi-

of two public roads.
County staff interprets
the "front" of a business
to be its entrance.
Wachovia's entrance faces
the parking lot to the east,
and its drive-through
teller lanes on the back of
the building face 210.
.A Wachovia representa-
tive argued Wednesday

that the ground sign along
the roadway is hard to see
as drivers travel around
the roundabout, which
connects Mickler Road
and 210.
ARC members agreed
that a wall sign on the
back of the building is
probably needed to help
identify the business.
. It was also noted that
Mercantile Bank, which is
in the same commercial
complex at the corner of
Mickler Road and 210,
also has two wall signs.
One faces Mickler Road
and one faces the entrance
to the shopping center.

New member joins PVCA board

The Board of the Ponte
Vedra Community Association
(PV\CA welcomed a new mem-
'ber at its Monday meeting -
43-year-old Robert Champion
of the 1000 block of Ponte
Vedra Boulevard.
The lifelong Ponte Vedra res-
ident and "avid" tennis player
joined the board for a four-
year term with hopes of keep-
ing his neighborhood beauti-
ful, he said in an interview
"It [the PVCA] is kind of its
own community' enforce-
ment," he said, adding that he
wants to contribute to that.
He said he has been a mem-
ber of the PVCA on and off for
several years. His recent mem-
bership stint began last year
when he moved back across
State Road A1A from Sawgrass,
he said.
Champion said he originally
joined the PVCA to keep up
with community events and to

R. Champion

,'meet new people.
As a member of the board,"
he said, 'he hopes to use the
voice of the PVCA to commu-
nicate .more with the St. Johns
Board *. of County
Commissioners about what
Ponte Vedra needs.'
Champion said some of thie
biggest issues facing the coun-
ty right now are growth and
escalating property taxes.
He said he does have aspira-
tions in the future to pursue

other political offices or board
such as the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD) Board of Trustees.
But for now, his investment
job prohibits him from serving
on the MSD, a board that
works. with public money for'
things such as bonds or bid-
ding contracts.,
Champion and his wife are
expecting their first child, a,
boy, in March.

From Cosby sweaters to Festivus

Holiday party themes offer originality

A large Santa'sits in the corner of the Polan'ds living room.
The house is adorned with Christmas decorations from all over
the world and has an estimated 200 Santas throughout the


Christmas is usually a time for
tradition and custom but some
Beaches residents are mixing
things up this year with some
very nontraditional parties and
A holiday dinner with family
is normal, but a progressive din-

ner at different family members'
houses via a shortbus is definite-
ly out,of the ordinary.
"We're really excited about
it," said Andrea Forsyth, who is,
participating .in the event with
her sisters and cousins and is
also in charge qf the music.
A dozen relatives have rented
a "shortbus," the latest trend as
an alternative to limousines, for

a progressive dinner party,
which will start out at one fam-
ily member's house and move
on to five other house for each
course of the meal.
The bus is equipped with a
video system and speakers and
partiers can bring your own
food and beverages, according
to Forsyth.
But, riding through the
Beaches' on a shortbus isn't the
only unusual event going on
around town.
Remember the Cosby show
and its ever-so-80s style
sweaters? Maybe next year, if
you've exhausted yourself try-
ing to find the perfect outfit to
wear to a holiday party, you
could try what Ponte Vedra
Beach resident Leah Davis sug-
gested and have a "Cosby
sweater" party. As a require-
ment;, everyone must show up
wearing a sweater which resem-
bles what a member of the
Huxtable" family might have
worn back in the day ..No more
black tie affairs and elegant
gowns, just funky sweaters and,
fond 80s memories.
Some party hosts have man-
aged to keep a holiday theme,
but with a.twist.
For example, Jacksonville
Beach residents, Bob and
Jacquie Poland may throw a.
traditional Christmas party,
but their decorating goes far
beyond a wreath, a tree and a.
few ornaments.
The Polands have been col-
lecting Santas of every shape
and. size and holiday souvenirs:
for the past 28 years, since the
birth of their daughter. There

are an estimated '200 santas in
the house, according to Jacquie
One tree is adorned with
ornaments from all over the
world. The family collects
ornaments on their travels, but
also make a lot of their own
decorations, she said.
For example, Jacquie made"
two topiaries that sit by her,
fireplace and she also created
and welded the nativity scene
that is displayed in her front
The house decoration is fit
for a magazine spread. It
requires .so much work that set
up work usually begins in July,
Jacqie said.
"I pretty much do it myself,",
said Jacquie, who does not
enlist the help of a profession-
The Polands have been
throwing the Rotary Christmas
party for the past 16 years and
this year expected 125 people.
Each person was asked to bring,
a teddy bear, each of which
will be donated to. a child at
Wolfson Children's Hospital,
she said.
Other Beacfi hosts have
turned their holiday parties
into humorous events. .
Jamie Odum hosted, a,
Seinfeld-themed "Festivus"
party, complete with argyle
sweaters and the Festivus pole,
an unadorned metal pole. The
non-traditional invitations to,
the party advertised a "tradi-
tion of debauchery" and
"We just wanted to change it
up a little bit," said Odum.

Arrest: No marine police were around to give aid

The father said that he tried
to 'reason with the assailant
while the boats were under the
bridge, asking him if he had
children of his own.
The assailant said he has two

children, and the victimm asked
him how he would feel if
someone tried to hurt them.
"He started cussing me and-
telling me he was going to kill
me," the man said, adding that
he was disturbed that no
marine.police were available to
help when the assailant fled.
The victim said he had

"Never one time have I ever

he said. "It's really upsetting to
know that you have a wild per-
son on the loose and we

Activities for children abound during brea

"Everybody had a good time,"
he said;,adding that he plans to
keep up the Festivus theme
next year.
According to Wikipedia,
Festivus is a nondenomina-
tional holiday featured on a
1997 episode of the sitcom
Seinfeld. Festivus was invent-
ed in 1966 when the father of a
future "Seinfeld" writer crafted
a unique family holiday with
nontraditional practices' such
as the wrestling of the house-
hold head to the ground.
According to Seinfeld, Festivus
is celebrated each year on Dec.
23, but many people celebrate
-it other times, often in early
December. Its slogan is "A
Festivus for the rest of us!" An
aluminum pole is' generally
used in lieu of a Christmas tree

Im easily distracted

this time of the year

have three basic rules for
the holiday season:

-Do not' ask what I am.
doing at some point in time
more than 12 hours before
the time slot. I won't be able
to answer.
-Do not mess with my gift
list. If you wanted to help
plan, buy, and ship gifts for
60 plus people then you
should have spoken up a long
time ago,
And last but certainly not
least: -
LAUNDRY ROOM unless you
want to get lost folding laun-
dry for an hour. That room is
the lethal magnet, the kiss of
death to someone with tight-
ly scheduled agenda.
During the season of frenzy
LsurrQunding ,the. 25h, many
of us get "holiday induced-
S .' T e'r"e o e "o ma ny
projects, unfilled lists, and
unfinished projects going on
that it's hard to know which
way to turn, and harder to
stay on task.
Like man\ of you, if I find
myself in a room but can't
remember why I'm there, I.
Scan usually go back to the
room I was previously in and
a light bulb clicks on. But this
time of year, my mind is
going 90 miles an hour, plac-
ing and replacing items in pn-
ority position on the "list of
things I absolutely have to get
done today", and the usually
fail-safe plan is no longer safe.
I ordered a sculpture from
an artist in SC in Nov. and
received it on Thanksgiving. I
got an email yesterday
reminding me that I hadn't


paid for it yet and asking if
there was a problem. I quickly
replied that the problem was
that the address was down-
stairs. I'm sure she was all
over that lame excuse. That is,
ital.jss she has the dreaded
' ,feared HI-ADD and caq,t
a room without being
mentally rerouted by objects
that enter the visual field. Let
me explain.
Walking through the family
room, I see the sculpture on
my mantle, and think "oh
gosh I've got to mail that
check, and head downstairs
to my bedroom to find the
address. Unfortunately I have
to walk through the kitchen
to get there, 'where there are
always dishes to rinse or spills
to wipe. Even if I make it past
the kitchen and head down-
stairs, Ipass my son's room
on the way to mine, and see
the eternally unmade bed.: o,
I walk in to make his bed, and
pick up the dirty clothes that
I know he has to wear the
next day, and on the way out,
see a test paper on his desk

that needs a parent signature,
then, because the dirty
clothes are in my hand, I
remember to walk into the
laundry room, from which I
emerge one hour later with a
pile of folded clothes, leaving
two other loads mid cycle as I
wonder why my son made
that grade on the test and 1,11
bet that you, the reader of
,this .column, ; can't even
remember why I walked
downstairs in the first place.
Next year I am investing in
a dry erase-board per room to'
jot down the reason I'm leav-
ing the room. The winding
trail that eventually leads me
back to the task that I set out
to do could be cut in half if I
could just look up and see
"artist address", or "green mat
for table". I guess I could
start writing things down on
r Ther. ti atr '
reatisnort on north term

an idea.
I confess the above with
caution, because of the red
flag it waves to the advice-giv-
ing-segment of society. I
know there are herbal and
conventional meds as therapy
for people like me, but I know
the cure: it's called sleep and
lots of it. '
I wish you joy, peace, and
rest for this special season.
At least enough rest to
remember why it is that we
celebrate and to Whom we
are truly grateful. .
Merry Christmas everyone.

Yen for veggies yields garbage soup

I'm picky. I only eat alone
or with someone. To., tell
the truth, as a widower, I,
get mostly solo sustenance.
-Looking back on the eight
years since my wife, Lucy,
,-passed on, I feel a sense .of
accomplishment over .not
having sickened myself with
, my cookers. In other words, I
haven't experienced the die
part of my diet. Now that I'm
trying to watch my choles-
terol, I've said a mostly final'
adios to the fatty meat that I
used to scarf down. May it rest
in grease.'
Anyway, I; have always had
a yen for veggies, including
potatoes. When I was playing
football in high school, I
couldn't seem to get enough
to eat, which was understand-
able in a household contain-
ing six kids with big appetites.-
.You needed, a well-developed
boardinghouse reach at sup-
per time. Back at home after a
date, when everyone else was
in their sack, I'd wash two or
three sizable spuds and roast
them on the gas range burn-
ers. They were burned, alright.


When done, they looked like
black meteorites, but they
relieved the hunger. '
My culinary talent contin-
ues to this day. I employ a
short but -practical recipe for
concocting "garbage soup."
Ingredients: nearly anything
of plant origin that's in the
fridge and pantry. This dish
can be really ecorfomical,
especially if you follow the
practice recommended by a
friend. In brief, you just use
anything under refrigeration
that's not green if it -isn't sup-

posed to be. Then again, I'm
fairl selective. It depends on
the SHADE of green. .
Jokes aside, I'm. really riot
too fussy about food. In fact,.
despite all the grousing over
the grub, I actually liked
U.S.Navy chow. It was hard
formne to see why so many of
the swabbies were griping and
claiming to gulp Tums. I even
savored the powdered eggs.
My ,son apparently wasn't as.
happy, however, with the vict-
uals in the Marine Corps. He
said they often called the
entr6e "mystery meat." When
buzzards circled, there was
always turkey for supper.
Good shoW! I might buy
some turkey legs to gnaw on.
Incidentally, somebody told
me why there are so many in
the grocery stores even when
there aren't very many whole
turkeys. This bird said he visit-
ed a turkey farm and saw a
flock of one-legged gobblers
walking around on: small
I believe he may have been
pulling MY leg.

Gifts have a very special place at Christmas

Iwas talking to my daughter,
Marley the other day. She's
six, so-you can just imagine
how excited she's been about
Christmas. So, I had to ask,
"What are you most excited
about?" And she knows her
dad.. She knows what to say. So
she said, "Daddy, it's Jesus
birthday!" So I asked, "Wh at is
it about Jesus birthday that you
like?" Can you guess what she
said? Presents! That's what I'm
talking about!
The thing is, as a family, we
try so hard to keep the focus of,
Christmas in the right perspec-
tive. We don't want to make it
all about what you get. But with
children in the house there's so
much momentum going in that
direction that you can't help but
get excited about gifts both
giving and receiving; And you
know what? I think there's
. something to that.
There's a word we -throw
around here a lot at Hodges -
this word grace,, and it simply
means an undeserved gift.
Here's the cool part though, in
our scriptures it implies both a
receiving and a giving. It's
almost like the more you are
open to receive, the more you
want to give. .
I 'mean, can you remember
the last time you had an experi-
ence that was just beautiful?
Something just touched you?
Maybe someone did something
wonderfulul for you just when
Ivou needed it most. .t 'mAbe
you saw an act of kindness that
took you by surprise.
I saw a little boy at a homeless
shelter once bend down and kiss
his little sister who was crying
on the forehead. it was moving.
You see that kind of thing and
:you want to respond you want
to do something: You experi-
ence grace and it's compelling.
S .You know the guy that wrote
that book Charlotte's Webb -
E.B. White? Years and years ago,
he said it is getting harder and
harder to perceive Christmas
through its wrappings.
That may be true, but I think
there is still something about
the Christmas season that'
reminds us that there is beauty
and good in the world around


us. And even as over-commer-
cialized as the season is I imag-
ine that most of us can't help'
but feel that there is something
.deeper going on. There is some-
thing compelling, or should I
say Somebne, that touches and-
inspires the hope, the generosi-
ty, the love that is in every one
of us.
My daughter had it right, at
Christmas we do celebrate Jesus
birthday. But it's no ordinary
birthday. It is a celebration that
God loves us so much that
God would actually break into
our world to 'touch and change
our lives for the better- and not
just for today, not just for this
season but forever. In a sense,
Christmas is about what we
But unless we respond, we
may never see beyond the wrap-
pings. Tonight, we are going to.

Which way

will Gator

haters lean?

A friend of mine sarcasti-
cally wondered aloud
, across a crowded restau-
rant last weekend, "Hey, John,
are you gonna write about the
Gators again next week?"
: Well let me see, Mike. I hap-
pen to be a big-time follower
of college football and college
basketball.'The University of
Florida football team is slated
to play for a national champi-
onship next month, while the
basketball team just won a
title in April and is currently
ranked fifth in the country.
A large percentage of UF
alumni live in Northeast
Florida and Gainesville is
about 90 miles down the road.
So, yeah, I think I will write
about the Gators again this
week. Thanks for your con-
cern. .,. .
Mike, by the way, is a
Georgia fan. I'm sad to tell
him that I have no plans to
amp up my coverage of the
Chick-fil-A Bowl any time
soon ...
Speaking of college football
fans, I'm curious as to how
the hon-Gators will approach
the title game between Florida
and Ohio State. How many of
you Dawgs and 'Notes and
'Canes will put aside the hate
for one night to pull for the
team close to home?
My friend Ray Lee, a Florida
State fan, put it like this:
"'This is North against

iit I hope they beat Ohio
State up and down the field."
As it stands, nobody outside
of this area seems to believe
- Florida has a chance to win
the game and many feel the
Gators don't belong on the
same field with the Buckeyes.
Considering that Florida
recruits its talent' from the
same pool as
Florida State, Miami and
many Southeastern
Conference teams, calling the
SGators an overwhelmingly
inferior opponent is an indi-
rect slap to the face of all
Southern college football fans.
I know there are those who
would pull for Lucifer's Army
to beat Florida and that's cer-
tainly understandable. But
given that the Gators will be
representing the South on col-
lege football's biggest stage,
will you reserve a four-hour
window on Jan. 8, 2007, to
forget that you hate pretty
much everything they stand
The University of Miami did
the right thing by hiring long-
time Hurricanes defensive
coordinator Randy Shannon
as its new head football coach.
Though it- seems like they,
stopped just short of inter-
viewing Pee Wee Herman
before making the hire, athlet-,
ic director Paul Dee and uni-
versity president Donna
Shalala must have awakened
and realized that Shannon's
recruiting ties in South Florida
are key to Miami's survival.
Think Ron Zook here. L
While he's an unproven
commodity as a head coach,
Shannon will at least keep the
talent coming to Coral Gables
much like Zook did in
Gainesville when he had the
formidable task of following
Steve Spurrier as Florida's head
coach. Mix in a good offensive
coordinator, who has yet to be
named, and the 'Canes could
be back in business in no
The Jacksonville Jaguars
found a new way to look bad
on Sunday, holding Tennessee
to just 98 total yards on the
day but giving up four
turnovers, three of which
went for touchdowns in a 24-
Maybe QB David Garrard,
who tossed three interceptions
(two for scores), isn't the
answer after all.
John L. Crawford's column
appears in the Fernandina Beach
News-Leader, a sister publica-
tion of The Beaches Leader.

A background in competitive
sports isn't the only thing Doreen
Sabina brings to her new job as race
director for the Beaches Fine Arts
Sprint Triathlon Series..
A former state champion swimmer
and Stanford University graduate
also is a lover of the arts who has
experienced the thrill of finishing a.
triathlon from both ends of the
competition spectrum.
"I saw it from the back of the,
pack, and that's given me a great
perspective of the event," said*
Sabina, a former BFAS age-group
winner who finished near the back
in 2002 after volunteering to assist a
first-time triathlete. )
"I got to see how some other peo-.
ple do the race." -
Sabina, 44, placed third overall
among women in the series stand-
ings in 2000, and was third overall
in a BFAS event in 2001.
She took a hiatus from triathlons
after the 2002 race to care for her
ailing mother in Boston, but she
continued to swim and run on a
daily basis.

In his first three seasons

He needs three more tackles

of 12 set by Tony Brackens in
That alone makes McCray,
who played his college ball at

Holiday shopping for the sportsman

W ith Christmas Day
just around the cor-
ner, many shoppers
are still wondering what gifts
will bring a wide smile and'
welcome thank you from fam-
ily members and friends.
Certainly giving at Christmas
time is not only to enjoy giv-
ing gifts, but enjoying the
feeling of having the recipient
open up their present and don
a thankful smile with gleam-
ing eyes of joy. .
Such was the case last ,
'Christmas when I received a'
fish cleaning kit; including
gloves, a knife sharpener and
four different filet knives, all
designed for a multitude of
fish cleaning jobs. The fish
cleaning kit-also included a
watertight case. During last
year's fishing season, I used
the fish'cleaning kit numerous
times and for a.variety of fish-
ing cleaning projects. More
importantly, the case kept
everything in a safe place so

Christmas Day. A good place'
to start is to simply visit one
of the many local tackle
shops. Christmas time is a
very busy time of year for
local sporting goods stores and.
they often stock up With a
variety of outdoor items for
the Christmas holiday.'
In many cases if they are
out of a particular item, they
can have it shipped in the .
next day and in plenty of time
for Christmas. If it just hap-
pens to be the wrong gift, it is:
a lot easier to return the gift
locally than it is to drive out
of town or ship it back to a
mail order company.
A popular item for stocking
stuffers is pliers. There are two
popular brands of piers on the
market today for hunters,
campers and fishermen.
Gerber and Leatherman pliers:
are made from stainless steel
and have all of the accessories'
outdoorsmen will need while
out on the water or in the
woods, including a knife,
screwdriver tips, file and even
scissors. The Gerber pliers are
a little easier to open; with

pliers are instantly ready to

Fishing scales also make
excellent.Christmas gifts and
come in a wide variety. Boga
Grips have been on the mar-
ket for a few years and allow
fishermen to land their catch
with the gripping end of the
fish scale. The fisherman sim-
ply holds the Boga Grips
straight up and a scale tells
how much the fish weighs.
You can also take a quick
photo of your catch and.
release it back in the water, all
without harming or touching'
the fish with your hands.
You will also find a variety,
of fish scales at local tackle
stores that keep track of your
heaviest catch of the day.
Digital fish scales not only
weigh your catch, but some of
the more expensive fish scales
will keep a record of all of the
fish that you have caught and
their exact weight.
Raingear also makes an
excellent Christmas present
for the outdoorsman. There is
nothing worse than getting
caught in a rainstorm without
rain gear. Frog Tog raingear is
very popular with both fisher-
men and hunters, because not
only is it waterproof, but it is
light and it breathes well. This
is very important for us

but also to see striking game

tance. Hunters.are frequently
using their 'binoculars to get a
better look at the quality of
game animals before they
make any decisions concern-
ing either killing the game or
waiting for a chance at a
much larger game animal.
Fishing lures make excellent
stocking stuffers. Some of the
more popular topwater plugs
include the Zara Spook, Skitter
Walk, Top Dog and the
Johnny Rattler. All of these
fish-catching surface plugs
resemble fun times on the
water when quality-size game
fish come to the surface when
least expected with heartstop-
ping strikes.
Fishermen can always use a
new fishing rod and reel at
Christmas time. Selecting the

proper rod and reel is very
important. I would recom-
mend talking with one of your
loved one's fishing partners to
see exactly what fishing rod,
reel or combo would be well
suited for an exciting
Christmas gift.
The new soft tackle boxes
are excellent Christmas gifts
and come in a wide variety of
sizes and styles. You can also
place a few new lures in the
soft tackle box as an added
gift and surprise.
Fishing and hunting boots,
shoes and sneakers also make
excellent Christmas gifts.

Christmas gifts this year for an

Poinsettias are

plant of season

The holiday season is
underway, and there
are poinsettias at
doorways and in offices all
over town. This plant seems
to have become the official
plant of the season, no
doubt because of its luscious
red leaves.
And although growers
have hybridized the leaf
color to be pink, apricot,
white, and all shades and
combinations in between,
the red continues to be most
people's favonte.
The care of the poinsettia
is what keeps it looking
lovely throughout the entire
holiday season and long
afterward. It is not unusual
to see plants that are just as
beautiful as the day you
bought them, still looking
that way two or three
months down the road. The
care prior to your buying
them, and then the care
they receive while under
your control, is what deter-
mines this.
I would caution you to
think twice before investing
in those that are windblown
and dry. Many of our larger
stores purchase these plants
in such large quantities that
they run out of indoor room
and therefore place them
outside, in the sun no less.
Day to day.. they burn up
out there, and the employ-
ees rarely remember to water
them until they look so
droopy, you'd think they
had Bassett hound in their
Needless to say, you w-ill
not have much success with
the plant once you get it
home if it has already
undergone such neglect at
the store.
So, while shopping, look
for ones that are taut, their
leaves firm and the color
that you like. Goodness
knows, you can spend as lit-
tle as a dollar on them, and
even the tallest and fullest
can be had for under $30.
There are a few tips I can
give you that will help yours
to stay nice-looking
throughout the holidays.
First, let me talk about
using them as interior deco-
rations. The first step is to
poke holes in that pretty foil
wrapper that they often
come in. This will allow for
drainage, which is critical
each time you water the
plant. Be sure to place the
pot onto a saucer so that
any liquids will not stain
table tops or carpets.
The second step is to
select a spot where the plant
will ideally receive a mini-
mum of six hours of dav'-
This does not mean it has
to sit and cook in the sun-
shine, but it should not be
in a dark room either.
Let me give you an exam-
ple: I had a dining room
that always had a few poin-
settias on the table along
with many native greens.
The dining room was rather
dark unless the overhead
chandelier was on.
After one year of dismal
failure, I realized that the
poor poinsettias needed
some more light besides
what they got when we had
So, during the day, I
removed them from the din-
ing room table and placed
them in a room where they
got plenty of bright day-
light, taking them back to
the table in the late after-
After doing that, I found

Sedaris' 'SantaLand' for adults only

David Sedaris was an aspir-
ing writer with an infatuation
for daytime soap operas when
he reluctantly took a seasonal
job as a Macy's department
store elf.
The humorous and often-
times humiliating experience is
retold in "SantaLand Diaries,"
a tart, anti-holiday essay first
published by Sedaris in 1994.
A stage version'of the Sedaris
piece runs tonight and
Saturday at the Atlantic Beach
Experimental Theatre, 716
Ocean Blvd., Atlantic Beach.
"The Santaland Diaries," a
production of Stage Two, stars
Ian Mairs in a one-man show.
Tickets are $10. Performances
are at 8:15 p.m.
Sedaris, now a best-selling
author, playwright and
National Public Radio com-
mentator, was a newly arrived

when he was hired as a "full-

In the essay, Sedaris, now 49,

street corner dressed as a

Stallone on

deck again

I swallow deeply as I write
that "Rocky Balboa" is the
"Rocky" sequel Sylvester
Stallone should have made
25 years ago. It truly has
everything."the original had
- wit, heart, and a genuine-
ly engrossing climactic fight.
The first "Rocky" was a
fine, touching movie about a
likable Everyman who got a
long-wished-for shot at being
a champ.
Though Stallone had been
doing minor movie roles for
years, "Rocky" opened peo-
ple's eyes to him, and his
own rags-to-riches story par-
alleled that of his creation.
But each successive sequel
seemed a bit more removed
from reality. (The only one I
haven't seen is "Roc' y V,"
which even Stallone now dis-
Now, both Stallone and
Balboa have come full circle,
and the new movie is actual-
ly "about" something in
which the audience can have
a stake.
The premise is that Rocky
and heavyweight champ
Mason "The Line" Dixon
iAntonio Tarverj have their
stats fed into a computer and
are put into a simulated
match. The computer's
results show that Rocky
would still come out a win-
.Naturally, the real, trash-
talking Tarver doesn't buy it,
and he reluctantly agrees to
an exhibition match with
Balboa. At this point, you're
probably rolling your eyes
and guessing.that Tarver
doesn't have wait for it -
the eve of the tiger, and
you'd be right.
But for a change, the
movie is *showing* us that
rather than telling us. As
with "Rocky I," the movie
shows that everyone
involved in the match really
needs its old, resigned Rocky,
his resentful son, and his bit-
ter brother-in-law Paulie
(Burt Young, back to being a
likable doofus instead of an
embarrassing caricature).
(The only emotional tug
that seems forced on us is
the long-past death of
Rocky's beloved wife Adrian.

'Apocalypto' dwells on bloodletting

With "Apocalypto,"
Mel Gibson spent
an awful lot of
time and money making a
movie about the Mayan peo-
ple that won't fool anyone
who's seen "Gladiator."
Heaven knows there's an
audience for macho epics
with copious amounts of
slo-mo blood-letting, but [
ain't it.
For all intents and purpos-
es, the primary Mayan of
the story is .Jaguar Paw la
charismatic Rudy
Youngblood). The movie
focuses on his attempts to
avenge the mercenaries who
destroy his home village,
kill most of its people, and
take the remainder of them
to either be sold off as
slaves, sacrificed to pagan
gods, or used as target prac-
One searches hopefully
throughout the movie's 139
minutes for a reason to care
about anyone in it Ibesides
the panther-like Jaguar Paw,
at least). The movie begins
with what amounts to a old-
school take on "Fear Factor,"
with a boar graphically
speared and gutted, its
innards given to the hunters
as symbols of manhood.
The movie's lone attempt
at comic relief comes from a
lone oaf who is hesitant to
eat a particular part of the
late boar's anatomy (and
with good reason). It turns
out that he's the butt of the
town's jokes because he has
a nagging mother-in-law
and he can't impregnate his

wife. I wonder how many
people are attending this
movie in the hope of seeing
a Mayan version of "The
Then the mercenaries
come to -- as Mel Brooks
exquisitely described it in
"Blazing Saddles" -- stam-
pede the women and rape

guys are led into town and
get painted blue, and there's
an eclipse of the sun that
fools the locals just like in
that old Mark Twain story,
and then... No, sorry, I.
can't make any sense of it
The movie might have
more impact if writer-direc-
tor Gibson didn't linger on
every little bit of exposition
and violence. Scenes are
dragged out long after we
get their point. At the sacri-
fice, severed heads roll
down the steps of a Mayan
pyramid with the frequency
and finesse of Fred
Flintstone's bowling bawls.
Then there's the beaut of a
stunt where a huge trees
falls and nearly kills many

of the prisoners, lust so that
Gibson can turn it into a
homage to (believe it or noti
Dustin Hoffman in
"Midnight Cowboy."
And yes, the movie is just
as violent as everyone
claims. I hate to come off as
a prude about this subject,
but when a movie lovingly
dwells on its every excuse
for bloodletting, you won-
der how much of it is meant
to make a point about the
uselessness of violence, and
how much of it is just a
movie director getting his
And you'd never guess at
the riches that Mayans con-
tributed to our culture if
you're going from their
depiction in this movie.
Most of the women parade
around like 15th-century
divas, and the men act like
slack-jawed avengers from a
Martin Scorsese movie.
When the sacrificing Mayan
leader cries out to the gods
for deliverance, you feel like
telling him that his group is
getting what it deserves.
For all I know, this movie
might have been well-
researched and achingly
authentic. The trouble with
"Apocalypto" is that it never
gets you to care about any-
one or anything in it. After
viewing characters with
names such as Flint Sky,
Curl Nose, and Smoke Frog,
Poison Pen just has to give
the movie a Bronx cheer.
"Apocalypto" is rated R
for mild sexual situations
and graphic violence.

kicks on, and this air will dry
it out very quickly. The last
tip has to do with the water-
ing practices one must follow.
Watering is always such a
bummer to try and write
about because there is no
magic formula. I could simply
tell you to "water when it
needs it." I'know the response
you'd utter at home as you
read this if I gave you that
advice! 4
Watering is a.tad complicat-
ed if you make it be, but not
if you understand that most
poinsettias, and most nursery
material for that matter, are
grown in a very peaty mix
which is very lightweight, and
therefore very porous.
It is easy for the nursery
man to keep the plants prop-
erly watered because he does
it with micro-irrigators that
come on every two hours,:in
some cases. It is all automatic,
and barn, he produces a gor-
geous plant. Remember,
though, that the mixture is
always very lightweight and
very porous.

However, the important thing
is to keep the ball of that
mixture damp.
So here's what I recorif "i
mend: Gather all yowu poin-
settias and place them on the
sink counter. Take off their
foil wrappers. Put the stopper
in the sink, and start filling
the sink with lukewarm
water. Place the poinsettias
into the sink, do not let the
leaves get water on them, and
let the whter fill each pot.
Turn it off, and allow the
plants to sit in the sink for
about a half an hour, absorb-
ing the water into this light- .
weight mixture. Empty the
sink of water, leave the plants
there to drain, replace their
wrappers, and place them
wherever you had them
throughout the house. I think
that if you do this every few
days, you should be fine.
If you are using poinsettias
as temporary decorations out-

their soil even more.

Here's your ideal TV schedule for Christmas

Y you're snowed in for the
weekend, right? Well,
not really (unless some-
thing unusual happens as
this column goes to press).
But you want to act like it.
',So here's your ideal TV
. uchde .while you wait up
to see if reindeer really know
how to flv.
Tonight, 8 p.m., CBS "8th
Annual A Home for the
Holidays with Rod Stewart" -
Why do I get the feeling he
won't be singing "Hot Legs"
or "Stay with Me"?
Tonight, 11:40 p.m., TBS -
"Tim Burton's The
Nightmare Before
I know, I already raved
about this flick two months
ago, but it's just the gift that


keeps on giving.
Sat., 8 p.m., ABC "The
Sound of Music." Maria, I
don't care how hot the
Captain is, you were sent

over from a convent. Think
twice and act nice.
Sat., 10:30 p.m., TBS -
"National Lampoon's
Christmas Vacation."
Seriously, isn't it past time to
.,gjy.,Ra.dy Qua.id. a. national
I pro-qmren01 o r sop-thing.
Sat., 12 midnight, Turner
Classic Movies, "Meet Me in
St. Louis." Watch long
enough to see Judy Garland
'sing "Have Yourself a Merry
Little Christmas."
Then you can cry yourself
to sleep.
Sun., 2 p.m. through
Mon., 6 a.m., ANMC, "Miracle
on 34th Street." OK, hlie's
Santa Claus, we get it
already! Ilf you think this
one's a marathon, see
below. j

Sun., 7:30 p.m., TBS -
Cartoon version of "How the
Grinch Stole Christmas." Jim
Carrey? Who's that?
Sun., 10 p.m., Cartoon
Network Adult Swim,
"Futurama." If youIwaan,t.pi.,
altenat.e tak op the.Spp4,pi
legend, you'll never do better
than this.
Mon., 1 a.m., Comedy
Central' "Denis Leary's
Christmas Special." Or this.
There's a reason it's being
broadcast at 1 a.m.
And here's the clincher:
Sun., 8 p.m. to Mon., 8
p.m. TBS shows nothing
but the movie "A Christmas
Story" for 24 everlovin'
hours. Before long, you'll be
able to do a diagram of that
leg lamp from memory.

Weekend 8 The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader December 22, 2006



Artificial Christmas trees,
just like real ones, take a
beating with time.
With the passing of numer-
ous holidays, your artificial
Christmas tree could even end
up with a significant number
of aesthetic challenges.
However, it is possible to
breathe new life back into a
faux fiasco and make it a
respectable-looking Christmas
tree again.
And, if you can't resurrect
new life out of it, there are
ways to convert it for other
uses. So before you ditch the
tree after this Christmas, see if
these ideas can help you sal-
vage your old tannenbaum.

Balding branches
One of the most common
problems with artificial trees
is the balding branch..
A quick fix for thinning
foliage is to wind'a contrast-
ing garland through the
branches. A contrasting gar-
land looks more like a pretty
addition and not like your try-
ing to create a decorating
comb over for your tree.
You can also buy large
foliage picks to stick in and
fill up the bare spots, but this
can get expensive and.it
might be hard to find enough
picks. But two full garlands
could really fill out your tree.

Oh Hole-v tree
In dragging a tree in and
out year after year, branches
are often lost. If this happens,
a large hole can result.
Instead of tuning the hole
around to the wall, do as dec-
orators often suggest, and
make the minus into a plus.


Fill in the hole with some-
.thing natural a bird and
birdhouse. After all, birds live
in trees and it could be a cute,
and unexpected, addition to
your tree.
Start by painting a small
bird house from a home decor
store with your Christmas col-
ors and embellish with a bird
Be sure to choose a bird-
house that's close to the same
. size as the hole in your tree so
the hole is filled up. Or, you
could stuff the hole with an
element that matches the
theme of your tree such as a
stuffed bear, a wrapped pres-
ent, a wagon, or other kind of
holiday element.
Big, oversized items like this
are a fun decorating surprise
and great camouflage.

Top and bottom
Other problem areas for
artificial trees are the top and
bottom. The top often teeters
or looks disconnected from
the rest of the tree.
A quick fix for the teetering
top is to create an arranged

Purchase foliage picks and
filler such as ting ting, .over-
sized pine cones, or some
poinsettias to create a topper.
This will help to pull the
top together and connect it
with the rest of the tree. Still
too wobbly? Try replacing the
top altogether with a cande-
labra or something similar.
A quick fix for the sagging
bottom is to place the tree
into a large urn or planter.
This looks tres chic arid res-
cues those sagging bottom
limbs. lust make sure the tree
is adequately anchored in the

Repurpose your tree
If the tree can't be saved,
then repurpose it. \\ire two
branches together and you *
have a mini tree. Sink the
branches into plaster in a
nursery container.
Create various sized trees
and you can have a Christmas
tree forest. Mini trees look ter-
rific next to a Christmas tree
and can be placed into trunks,
in a child's wagon, a planter
that matches the tree, or as
outside decorations.
Or, make a swag by attach-
ing two branches together
pointed away from each other
and decorate. Use one of the
ends as the hanger.
If vour artificial tree looks
bad, don't despair. There's no
need to trash \our tree when
just a few faux fixes could
save it from the dumpster.

Pnoto suOn-mind
Create swags from artificial Christmas tree branches by wiring two branches by overlapping the
ends and wiring together. Decorate with ribbon, pinecones, or other embellishments.
