Gen. Jack Quinn 'was driven to excel'

John. T. "Jack" Quinn, a
retired Army general who died
Christmas Eve at the age of 77,
will be remembered for being
many things.
He was a proud, 34-year mil-
itary veteran, a concerned citi-
zen, a God-fearing Catholic, a
doting grandfather, and a com-
passionate, community-mind-
ed volunteer.
But above all, Quinn was

simply "a very good, wonder-
ful person," his wife of 54 years
said Wednesday in an inter-
view at the couple's Ponte
Vedra Beach home.
"My mother and father
never worried when I was out
with him," Kay Quinn recalled.
"Even his sisters talked about
how good he always was."
One of seven children
brought up in a working class
Irish Catholic household in
New Haven, -Conn., Jack

Quinn was the son of a fire-
man/rescue diver.
To earn extra money in high
school, he enlisted in the
Connecticut National Guard,
rising to the rank of sergeant.
A chance appointment in
1949 to the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point became
the gateway for Quinn's long
and distinguished military
career, one that included
three tours of combat duty in
Vietnam, two stints at the

Pentagon and a NATO assign-
ment in Italy.
"His inspiration [for the mil-
itary] was the World War II
guys," said Gen. Quinn's son,
Tom, a Ponte Vedra resident
and'1979 West Point graduate.
"He never wanted to retire
from the Army," added Kay
Quinn, who married her high
school sweetheart a week after
he graduated from West Point
in the summer of 1952.
"He always wanted to be a

Gen. Quinn was the con-
summate infantry officer, his
family members said, a man
who never chased laurels and
never asked his troops to do
anything he couldn't.
An airborne ranger trained at
Fort Benning, Ga., Quinn
trained officers for combat in
Vietnam after spending a year
in Vietnam's Central
Highlands as an American mil-
itary advisor to the 20th

Vietnamese Ranger Battalion.
"He answered President
Kennedy's call for military
advisors in 1962," Kay Quinn
"He felt Vietnam was not
necessarily the place we should
be, but as long as there were
American troops over there, he
felt it was his duty to lead

Nease coach

huddles with

W. Va. coach

Nease football coach Craig Howard, like many'
coaches always in the market for new ideas, was
picking brains again Thursday.
This time, he was at the University of North
Florida to pick up on any ideas from West
Virginia head coach Rich Rodriguez, a friend of
The West Virginia Mountaineers, who have
been practicing at -NF, pl$a 0 e1 dtj';clt-tj'h
Gator Bowl at Alltel Stadium on New Year's Day.
Howard and Rodriguez have known each other
for 10 years. At that time, Rodriguez was head
coach at Glenville (W.Va.) State and Howard was
football coach at Mandarin High School in
Their association continued when Rodriguez
moved to Tulane as assistant to Tommy Bowden
in 1997-98, then shifted with Bowden to
Clemson in 1999-2000. Rodriguez took over at
West Virginia in 2001.
"We run some similar things offensively,"
Rodriguez said of Howard, who coached mainly
college football for more than 15 years before

But in an e-mail sent earlier
this month to all five county
commissioners, a library
employee says that it was
Thomas, not Little, who asked
the library employees to sign
the petition.
The employee, Jodi Pickler,
claims that Thomas' actions
are part of a plan to help her
career and that of another
library employee, who Pickler
said wants Little's job. Little is
expected to retire in about a

Pickler said in the e-mail that
during Little's visit to the Ponte

took place June 5, Little was
not aware that Thomas had

his third week as interim St.
Johns .County administrator,
said he is takirig the enri'l]'"ver

However, he said County
Attorney Patrick McCormack is
first looking to see if any laws
may have been broken.
Then Kropacek said he will
look to see whether any
administrative policies or pro-
cedures were violated.
"This is not going to go away
until we find out what hap-
pened," Kropacek said, adding
that many personnel issues are
involved, so the county is "pro-
ceeding very cautiously."

Where are they now?

Here's what's happening with some notables from Ponte Vedra's past

Each of the people featured below has made
some kind of an impact in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Some haven't been around in years, others are
still close by.
There is no particular reason for selecting
these particular names, which appear in alpha-

"The only thing on the ballot was whether or

issue failed, and tiny Oakland, incorporated in
1887 and located about 20 minutes west of
Orlando, remains a town with mostly dirt roads.
"I love it," said Balsavage, who was the

He had to have a little surgery [to have fluid

that perfectly.
"We took a lovely cruise up to Canada, went
to Quebec and Montreal. We visited Anne of
Green Gables on Prince Edward Island. Anne of
Green Gables was a series of books I read as a
young girl. And we visited [the author] Lucy
Maud Montgomery's house.
"Then we went into a coal mine, which I've
never done before. That was the highlight of the
trip. We were led by one of the former miners.

was so strong.
"Every night Sid and I had a gin and tonic and
danced to the band on the cruise ship. We had
just a wonderful, wonderful trip."
Joyce was supposed to go to Ocean Palms on

Pajama Day and share the "Polar Express," but
her mother's dementia had progressed and she
was put in a home.
"She's happy now, I think. It will be a differ-

Getting, in shape is one of
the top New Year's resolutions

sidering buying a gym mem-

the holiday. But Bronson urges
consumers to do their home-
work and not assume they can
cancel a contract if they simply
change their minds about
attending a club.,
"A gym membership is a
great gift,' but it is an invest-'
ment and buyers should be
sure that it is a gift the recipi-,
ent will use before they invest
the money," Bronson said.
"Health club contracts are
legally binding like any other
contract and require some
thought and investigation."

Quinn selfless helper

To the editor
This is a tribute not only to a
great patriot, but also to what I
believe is the most selfless,
dedicated helper of his 'fellow
man that I have ever met -
John T. (Jack) Quinn, .who
passed away on Christmas Eve.
He was also a good golf partner
and an extremely loyal friend.
Jack loved his country and
his God, and he served both
with devotion and distinction.
He graduated from West Point
in 1952, served in both Korea
and Vietnam, and had a distin-
guished military career.
Moreover, there was a special
place in his heart for those
who had served, fought and
died in the defense of this

country. Every Memorial Day
he honored those men and
women through his public
utterances and writings.
Equally as impressive was his
second career, here at the
Beaches, with the St. Vincent
dePaul Society. His was a full-
time job during which he
helped the less fortunate of the
Beaches communities with
.such things as furnishings,
food and even rent. These
efforts touched and benefited
the lives of so many people,
Jack's world here at the
Beaches is a much better place
because he was here. We shall
all miss him greatly.

Dog training at FHS Kick butts for New Y

To the editor:
I must commend The Leader
for doing a story on dog obedi-
ence at the beach. However, I
would suggest that your staff
writer do a little homework.'
prior to writing such a piece,
especially when many people
could be influenced by the fact
that the story was large, and
front page.
You see, the dog training
business in America is not :cut
and dry. Just because you have
a certificate from some train-
ing school does not make one.
a good dog trainer. In fact, in.
S many, cases one can obtain,
such a certificate just by pay-
ing a fee and answering a cou-
ple of questions.
And who on earth certified
those supposed training.
schools to begin with? There
are no rules, regulations or,
whatever to govern dog train-
ers. Hence, anyone can claim
to be a dog trainer, especially if
they have a certificate to back
their claim. So why even men-
tion that a trainer is certified,
as such a statement can indeed
be misleading? "
Now think about this. Some
supposed dog trainers; .to
include local trainers, teach,
that obedience for dogs is
taught by using food rewards. I
would suggest to you that such
thinking is ignorant.
Obedience is not a trick.
Obedience is what your dog'
does out of respect for you as
the leader of the pack. No
wonder it could take some
trainers several months to'
teach something so simple as,
to not bite the leader. Ouch!
And just for the record,
many supposed trainers who
use food rewards also make
their clients use "pinch col-
lars." Yea,. I know those are
now called "pressure collars"
but the simple,fact of the mat-
ter is that the thing was origi-
nally called a pinch collar and
it was designed to control
extremely aggressive, very
large attack dogs and not youdr
common pet.

Hence, I would suggest to
.one and all that food rewards
and pinch collars are just a
crutch for bad technique. ,
If the reporter had done any
homework, he would never
have suggested that sL\ lessons
(only five for the dogi for $65
is "nominal." A simple call to
Fletcher High School would
have led to learning that you.
can get dog training there -ia.
their Community Education
program for $40 and your dog
can get eight lessons.
And food rewards and pinch
collars are not taught there.
Those classes are also 10 stu-'
dents per class or less,so that
,people can get much more
time with the instructor. It
should also be noted that the
instructor at Fletcher is giving
back to the community where
he actually lives.
Now let's address this situa-
tion where supposed trainers
offer "pupp. classes," "adult
classes" and mpre. 1, you check'
with Fletcher, they will tell you
that they only offer one class
for all dogs. -
,You see, at Fletcher the dog.
owner is doing the learning
and if the dog owner is doing
the learning, then there is no
need for additional classes for-
the dog.
I personally believe that
trainers who offer puppy class-
es, adult classes, etc. are rip-
ping people off. After all, if you
would teach the owner during
the first course, why on earth
would you need to repeat it?
Perhaps it is because you
only tried to teach the dog.
Teach the owner the first time
and save your money. At the
class mentioned in The Leader
story, one has to pay twice -,
once as a puppy and then
again as an adult, equaling
$130 and at Fletcher, one
can learn for just $40 and take
only one course.
So I must ask the reporter,
where is the "nominal" with
the $130 suggested course?

serving with the 7th Cavalry:
Regiment. (1st' ,Cavalry

'"I Would have been shocked
if I wasn't the first one out of
the water because I haven't metf
another triathlete yet who,
comes from quite the swimming

said McLarty, who specializes in
the 40(X)-meter individual medley
for the Gators.
"McLarty's 23-year-old sister,
Sara, is a member of the
National Teams Program for elite
triathletes. She lives and trains at

Colorado Springs, Colo.

Fletcher head coach Joe
Reynolds picked up his 100th
career football win Sept. 8.

As for his victory Saturday,
Dustin McLarty chalked it up to
two factors: Terrific conditions
and the absence of perennial
BFAS champion Danny
"I've always been the first one
out of the water even during the.
Domingo Era," he said with a
laugh. "It was usually during the
bike race that he'd overtake me.,
"Today I saw him out on the
course, just sitting there as a
spectator. He waved at me right
about at the point he usually
blows by me on the bike

off from the sprint triathlon
series but may return to com-

Tn a spirited battle August 18 at
Fletcher High, the Senators
Lbegan their 2006 swim season
with a pair of victories over the
Nease High Panthers.
Fletcher boys won, 186-128,
while the Senators girls team
edged Nease, 163-152. It was the
girls first victory over the
Panthers since the late 1990s.
The girls swim meet started
with the Nease 200 medley relay
team (Kristin Gerkins, Amanda
Santillo, Ashten Crosby and
Kelsie Wenzel) in a time of 2:03.5
edging out the senators girls team
(Ally Babillis, Samantha Blount,
Sarah Montgomery and Kaileigh
Katie Kahlbaugh (Nease) won
the 200 freestyle with a time of
2:13.55, followed by Kristen
Ghandour (Fletcher), then
Brooke Lockerman (Nease).
Senators captain Samantha
Blount won the 200 individual
medley with a time of 2:16.44, as
Gerkens (Nease) came in second
and Babillis (Fletcher) was third,
Sarah Montgomery (Fletcher)
won a dose race in the 50

freestyle with a time of 27.16,
with Wenzel (Nease) coming in
second and Morgan Jenkins
(Nease) placing third.
In diving, Fletcher girls swept
first through third. Emily Padgett
earned top honors followed by
Emily Jenkins in second and
Victoria Oakely in third.

Tror Fletcher head football
coach Joe Reynolds, win
number one was more sig-
nificant than win number 100.
Actually, the Senators cele-
brated both with a 26-7 victory
over Englewood Sept. 8 at Jack
Taylor Stadium. Fletcher High
ended its two-game skid to
improve to 1-2 on the season,
and Reynolds earned the 100th
victory of his coaching career.
"I know this sounds crazy, I
mean, don't get me wrong this
is great," Reynolds said after he
was presented the game ball
Friday night. "But the one win
is more important. The first win
of the season, for this team is
more important."
Particularly pleasing to the
coach was that Fletcher seemed
to do it the old fashioned way:
Run, run, run, and then run
some more.

Overweight children suffer more joint problems

Have pictures of several dif-
ferent athletes in mhy office.
Athletes come in all shapes
and sizes, from the diminutive
gymnast to the 400-pound
sumo wrestler.
Seeing the picture of the
sumo wrestler, one of my
* patients asked me "Is that
healthy?" to which I immedi-
ately replied that it was not.
Being overweight puts'a
tremendous strain not only,
your joints, but increases your
risks of heart disease, hyper-
tension, and diabetes.
However, being overweight
not only affects your health
status as an adult, but also
leads to additional health
problems during childhood.
Recent research indicates
that overweight children
appear to have broken bones
and joint problems more often
than kids of normal weight.
According to Dr. Susan


W whatever criticism
might be heard
about the football
season of 2006, no one can
say it hasn't been interesting.
Right at the top, fans can
salute the Florida Gators who.
could be on the verge of a .
national championship. Then
there's Nease High, which
continues to show finesse and
'class even without th'ir
heretofore star, Tim Tebow.
It's Tebow who has taken
his talents to the University of
Florida where he serves as
understudy to starting quar-
terback Chris Leak and gives
Urban Meyer's following a
glimpse of what it can expect
beginning next year.
In past years the saying
around Gainesville was,
"Wait'll next year!" Then, it
meant that surely things
would get better.
Now it means, "Wait until
Tebow takes over the quarter-
back job for his very own."
t.he, Tebow bandwagon .is as
crowded as any Gator band-
wagon has ever been. It's
doubtful that old Steve
Spurrier ever commanded
such adulation as Tebow has
and he's only a freshman.
With the success that Meyer
has brought to Gainesville,
Florida fans can only see
things getting even more
exciting when Tebow logs

Yanovski, director of the
Obesity and Eating Disorders
Program at the National
Institute of Diabetes, Digestive
and Kidney Diseases, "Kids
who are overweight are
already'having problems with
their'mobility, fractures, and
joint pain."

Most of the Gators' enemies
are already going down.
Despite Wednesday night's
victory in the Emerald Bowl,
Seminoles coach Bobby
Bowden wouldn't call 2006
one of his great seasons. But
nobody can say Florida State
football was dull. While
Bowden has had many frus-
trating years at the helm of
the Seminoles, but he's never
had one where his son has
come under such intense fire
as an assistant coach.
There's irony in the prob-
lem the Seminoles have had
at quarterback. For years
Florida had problems deciding
which signal-caller was best -
or which one would hurt the
Gators the least. Meanwhile.
Florida State went through
one good one after another.
The Gators have had some
good quarterbacks, but none
bordering on great.
Yet even in a losing season
Bowden's team has been inter-
esting. This down season
won't carry over into next
year. Uncle Bobby will bring
them back or so he vows.
It was pretty good year for
the Jacksonville Suns. They

In fact, 13 percent of over-
weight kids had had at least
one broken bone at some
point in their lives, compared,
with less than four percent of
ideal-weight children.
It was also noted that it was
especially common for obese
children to have knee pain
and restricted movement. The
problem of obesity then
becomes-a vicious cycle.
The child is overweight,
which leads to pain. It then
becomes difficult to exercise,
which leads to inactivitv and
increased weight, which leads
to more joint pains, and so
on. In addition, reduced phys-
ical activity also leads to the
bones not forming as strongly

as they could, which increases
the risk for fractures.

YEAR: Four seasons of sports highlights

Continued from page A-8
T ie Panthers girls golf team
Stopped Flagler Palm Coast
by two strokes Oct. 13 to
win second-place honors in the
Region 2-2A championship and
earn a berth in the state finals.
In the day-long regional tour-
nament played at the
Jacksonville Beach Golf Club,
Nease edged Flagler Palm Coast
325-327 in the nine-team event
to finish second to Lake Mary,
whuch shot a combined 318 to
win the crown.
Sophomore Brighid Hourihan
led the Panthers with a 3-ovei
par 75. Nease No. 1 golfer
Catherine O'Donnell shot a 77.

T e Fletcher High boys golf
team earned a berth in the
.1 Class 2A state tournament
with its second-place finish in the
Oct. 17 regional event.
Senators anchor man Major
Forbess sank a five-foot par putt
on the lSth hole at Killeam Golf
and Country Club in Tallahassee
to put Fletcher in the state final. It
was a familiar position for both
the team and Forbess, who last
year drained an 18-foot birdie
putt on the same hole to lift the
Senators in the Region 1-2A boys
Once Fletcher posted its total of
307, team members and head
coach Ed Lange had to wait for
Femrnandina Beach, Tallahassee
Chiles and Tallahassee Leon to fin-
Lsh to see if the score would be
bettered. Only Leon managed to
unseat the Senators.

A Tith an attitude of,'
"Once we're in the
V final four anything
can happen,' the.Nease High
girls volleyball team advanced
to the state semifinal round
with a four-game victoryy over,
Gtoveland South Lake Nov. 2.
The Panthers downed the vis-
iting Eagles. 25-18, 25-21, 26-
28, 25-17. to win the Class 4A
Region 3-4A final.
Nease's final point, an
emphatic kill by junior outside
hitter Paige DePriesf, touched
off an exuberant celebration as
the team equalled its furthest
voyage into the postseason.
"It still hasn't hit me that we
actually won yet,,' s senior
middle blocker Laura Phillips.
"It's surreal. It's awesome. We're

all stoked that we set this as a
goal and we achieved it."

A after his team went up 21-
17. late in the fourth quar-
A er of the Class 4A state
championship game at Dolphin
Stadium Dec. 9, Nease High
football coach Craig Howard
was an emotional wreck.
Time, not Tampa Plant and
its record-setting quarterback,
Robert Marve, was Howard's
worst enemy down the stretch,
and he knew it.
"You have just scored what
you think may be the go-ahead
touchdown and you're looking
at the clock and it doesn't seem
to be going fast enough,"
Howard reflected Saturday after
his top-ranked team fell to
Plant 25-21 in the title game.
"Your stomach is in a knot,
[penalty] flags are flying around
and they [Plant] have an
offense that can score and
enough time to do it.
"They're one play away from
winning it and we're one play
away from stopping it."
Nease couldn't make that
defining stop.
Marve, who eclipsed three
state passing records during the
game, made a perfect throw to
teammate Derek Winter for the
winning score with 17 seconds
to play to snap Nease's 23-game
winning streak and lift Plant to
its first state title in school his-
tory. '"
No. 1 Nease, the defending
state champion, finished 14-1.
"Marve and his receiving
corps were really sharp," added

Howard, whose team led all
lacksonville-area public schools
in total offense this season.
"He got it done and we have
to take our hats off to him. But
even after they scored, we had a
chance to win it. \Vhat gets lost
in the shuffle is that we lost the
state championship game after
a brilliant performance."
Nease rallied from a 17-0
deficit to lead 21-17 with 3:02
After Plant (15-01 retook the
lead 25-21 on a 12-play, 78-yard
scoring drive that included a 2-
point conversion pass, Nease
had 1' seconds left to write an
alternate ending to a storybook
season that included a school-
record 14 wins.
The script featured a Cal-
Stanford-like kickoff return to
the Plant 23. But needing a
touchdown to-win, Howard
knew his quarterback would
have to buy some time in the
pocket before his receivers got
open in the end zone.
Plant linebacker Patrick Carter
would have none of that.
The junior sacked Nease
quarterback Ted Stachitas for a
4-yard loss as time expired.
"There's three seconds left
and they put a blitz on and we
never get the play off." Howard
said Saturday as he waited to
board the team bus home.
"\Ve just wanted to get
receivers in the end zone and if
the pass was incomplete, well at
least we tried. I'm real proud of
our kids. They showed charac-
ter fighting back the way they

Chore list for

next 2 months

Now that another year
of gardening is
behind us, it's never
too soon to prepare for next
year. Here are some tips for
the next two months to
start off the New Year on the
right foot.
Possible cold snaps;
North Florida dormancy.
1. Plant balled and
burlapped trees and large
shrubs; remove wrapping
and keep well-watered on a
daily basis.
Water slowly at soil level
for an hour or so at each
The hole needs to be twice
as wide as the football, but
no deeper, refilling the hole
with the same dirt that
came out of it. Add amend-
ments on top of the soil to
leach through.
Transplant any shrub or
tree now.
2. Water 24 to 48 hours
before a freeze warning.
Water after the freeze, but
never during it.
3. Lawns are growing even
though they may appear
dead. Water once a week so
the lawns receive 1/2 to 3/4
inch per watering.
4. Plant tulips, narcissus
and other common spring-
time bulbs that have been
refrigerated for 45 to 60
days. Annuals that can be

The intrigue of
Egyptian culture
and history come
to Jacksonville in
an exhibit at the
Cummer Museum of Art &
"Temples and Tombs:
Treasures of Egyptian Art
-from the British Museum"
highlights 85 masterworks
from the British Museum in
London, and provides
insight into an ancient cul-
ture rich in custom, supersti-
tion and history.
The exhibit, which opened
Dec. 22 and continues
through March 18, is one of
the largest the Cummer has
ever held and is one of its
most grand.
"The Cummer is making
history," Museum Director
Maarten van de Guchte said
Dec. 21, during a sneak pre-
view of the exhibit for media
As two retracting doors
opened to unveil the exhibit,
adding a dramatic flair, your
eyes immediately fall on a
4,000-pound red granite
sculpture of a majestic lion
dating from 1352 B.C.
"The lion embodies the
power of pharaoh," Dr. Neal
Spencer, the assistant curator
in the Department of
Ancient Egypt and Sudan at
The British Museum, told
members of the media.
Spencer said that the Lion
of Amenhotep III, acquired
by the British Museum in
1835, is the largest object
that has ever been sent away
from the museum.
The museum's collection
spans four dynasties of
Egyptian life and exemplifies
what was most important in
t' ir itcultuTe,- -
For example, the Egyptians
believed that when you die,
your soul resides in a statue,
Spencer said.
The statues were sculpted
to depict an idealized version
of what the person would
look like to better prepare
them for the afterlife. They
also believed that if you
wanted to destroy someone's
legacy, you could remove a
vital part of the statue, such
as the nose or mouth,
Spencer said.
Many of the artifacts were
placed by temples or in
tombs and held religious
meaning. Jewelry served as
more than decoration, for
instance. Many pieces were
amulets for protection,

"Pectoral Plaque Amenemhat IV Before Alum," which is made of gold and dates to 1799 B.C., is one of 85 Egyptian antiquities in
the "Temples and Tombs" exhibit.

according to Spencer.
Since the afterlife played
such a key role in their cul-
ture, the Egyptians provided
the tools you used in the
present to carry you through
the afterlife. A scribe would
be buried with writing tools
and anything else he may
need in his afterlife.
"These were sacred
objects," Spencer added.
Spells were also provided
in the book of the dead,
which has some of its
papyrus pages on display in
the exhibit, to navigate
through the afterlife, which
was full of monsters, croco-

diles and evil, according to
Ln keeping with the theme
of Egyptian custom and cul-
ture, students from several
Beaches schools were educat-
ed on the subject and pro-
duced art work to replicate
Egyptian drawings and sculp-
tures, which is also on dis-
play in the museum.
Their work is part of an
outreach program, Future
Artists of the Beaches (FAB)
Fest, that the museum spon-
sors every year to encourage
elementary students to
appreciate the value of art
and get them involved,

accordingqto Hope McMath,
director education.
This year, the theme tied
into the Egyptian exhibit.
Museum Educator Rebecca
Hickey went to 10 Beaches
schools and taught them
about Egyptian culture and
then provided them with the
materials to make relief
sculptures and portraitures.
The students were instruct-
ed to use symbolism
throughouttheir .work, espe-
cially personal symbols,
because symbolism was
prevalent in most aspects of
Egyptian culture.
Their work wtll be recog-

nized on Jan. 21 from 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m. for a special family
day, where family, friends,
teachers and principals are
invited to view the students'
Admission to "Temples and
Tombs" is $8 for adults, $5
for seniors, military and stu-
dents. Children 5 and under
are free.
The Cummer is located at
829 Riverside Ave. Hours are
10 a.m to 9 p.m. Tuesday
and Thursdays and 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Wednesday,
Friday, and Saturdays. The
museum is also open from
noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Stiller fails to follow Allen's footsteps

n last'week's
"Entertainment Weekly,"
critic Lisa Schwarzbaum
said of so-called "harmless"
kids' movies, "Why should
youthful eyeballs be forced
to tolerate anything ours
Her comment repeatedly
came to mind as I watched
"Night at the Museum," a
slam-bang comedy that
explains its every gag for the
benefit of any audience
member who can't be both-
ered to follow its pedestrian
The movie's first few
scenes are bald exposition to
establish the character of
Larry Daley, played by Ben
Stiller in his usual manners
of urban-neurotic tics and
utter cluelessness. Larry is a
divorcee who can't hold a
steady job and is slowly
alienating his young son.
This characterization is laid
out in several scenes that
are so forlorn as not to gar-
ner a single laugh.
In a last-ditch effort, Larry
takes a dead end job as a
security guard at a natural-
history museum. The retir-
ing guard (Dick Van Dyke,
who hasn't had a decent
movie role in at least 30
years) gives Larry some cryp-
tic warnings about the
museum's nightly goings-
The meaning of those
warnings becomes painfully
clear when the museum's
varied still-life figures

(dinosaurs, lions, etc.) come
to life at sundown. The spe-
cial effects are realistic
enough and should evoke
some kind of laughter or
benign terror. But the whole
setting is presently so lack-
adaisically that, after Ben
Stiller skitters around cor-
ners a few times, one is
tempted not to laugh but to
Many of the human fig-
ures come to life, too. But
their scenes resemble any
episode of "Bewitched"
where Samantha accidental-
ly zaps a bland historical fig-
ure into the 20th century.
Robin Williams is positively
strait-jacketed in his role as
Teddy Roosevelt. He's so
constrained by his stiff cos-
tume and forced smile that
you barely recognize him.
And Stiller crony Owen
Wilson does more of his
cute-beatnik routine, only
here he's trying to embody-
an Old West cowboy (in a
role lifted straight from
"The Indian in the

Cupboard," a far,superior
family film).
As with most recent come-
dies directed by Shawn Levy
("Cheaper by the Dozen,"
"The Pink Panther"), the
characters don't begin to be
plausible, even on the
movie's own farcical terms.
Character traits pop up long
enough to be milked for
gags; then they're forgotten
once the movie rushes to its
frantic climax.
The supporting cast looks
lost. A lot of heavy hitters
I"The Office's" Ricky
Gervais, "Spy Kids" mom
Carla Gugino) are brought
in to stand around and be
half-written characters in
service to the star.
And what is it about Ben
Stiller, anyway? People seem
to regard him as some kind
of comic genius, but all I see
is a man trying to follow in
the footprints that Woody
Allen left behind him long
One wants to extend some
goodwill to "Night at the
Museum," because some
obvious effort was put into
it, and heaven only knows
how the special effects all
came together. But as with
most latter-day comedies,
Hollywood always puts the
story in service of the
effects, rather than vice
"Night at the Museum" is
rated PG for minor adult
language, and mildly scary
scenes of peril.

Area galleries grew in number, quality in 2006

As this year ends we can

what our art community
has achieved and look forward
to the promise of even better
things to come.
Our museums have given us
blockbuster exhibits, and our
local galleries have grown in
number as well as quality of
Art in public places has
increased gracing our airport,

Council of Greater
Jacksonville, which supports
theaters, galleries, symphony

George Kinghorn, director of
the Museum of Contemporary
Art, formerly the Museum of
Modern Art, explained that
contemporary art places the
beginning of contemporary art
at 1945 and incorporates new
forms of media.
The name change was
appropriate since 92 percent
of the museum's collection is
comprised of works created
from '1960 to the present.

porary art with art education

2006's top 10 hope-providing events

I'm well-known as a cur-
mudgeon, but every so.
often, something happens
in the entertainment world
that pleasantly surprises me.
Sometimes it's a hopeless-
looking movie that turns out
to be a gem. Other times, it's
an egotistic celebrity getting
his or her comeuppance.
They're not always huge
epiphanies, but often enough;
they reassure me that show
biz hasn't completely suc-
'cumbed to the lowest com-
Smon denominator. Here, then,
are 10 events that gave me
hope in the passing year.
1. Conan O'.Brien's spot-on
"Music Man" parody on the
annual Emmy Awards. Close
second: His ongoing televised
threat to kill (in-on-the-joke)
Bob Newhart if the awards
show ran long.
2. Clint Eastwood's movie of

-"Flags of Our Fathers.' One'of
the greatest anti-war films
ever made, directed by a 76-
year-old. Tell me again why
we have an enforced retire-
ment age.,
3. "Rocky Balboa." It took
him five sequels, but Sylvester
Stallone finally got it right.
4. Despite months of
'Internet hype, "Snakes on a

Plane" grossed only $34 mil-
lion. Turns out the public was
just as sick of those bleepin'
snakes as Sam Jackson was.
5. Once a multi-media irri-
tant, Britney Spears is now
reduced to going out in public
sans panties just to get press
coverage. Perhaps the day is
near when her public persona
will be as invisible as her
6. The recent black eyes
sported by ABC's "The View":
' Dahn, DeVito's drunken rant,
Rosie O'Donnell defaming
Donald Trump and much of
the population of China. This
is what happens when a
major network wastes an hour
on a glorified coffee-klatsch.
7. The fall-out from "Borat."
The aftermath of embarrassing
real people in an offensive
movie comedy: The people
come back and sue the

8. "Brotherhood." This
Showtime series looked like a
"Sopranos" knock-off but
quickly came into its own. I'd
take any single episode from
this show over Scorsese's "The
Departed" any day.
9. Jessica Simpson finally
gets her lack of talent thrown
in her face. Appearing at a
Kennedy Center tribute to
Dolly Parton, the buxom non-
star flubbed the words to
Parton's sorg "9 tYo '6i"'r'd'Was
Ltreated to an audience situng
on their hands.
She fled the stage and asked
to be edited out of the trib-
ute's TV.special.
10. "Love," the surprisingly
triumphant new album from
The Beatles. John Lennon and
George Harrison long ago
passed on, and they still had a
better year than I had.

Wells classic 'Things to Come' out on DVD

H .G. Wells Merely
mentioning the name
H brings to mind "The
Time Machine," "War of the
Worlds" and many more
classical science fiction
A champion of liberal
social causes, in 1933, he
published an essay called
"The Shape of Things to
Come." Just three years later,
his dark vision was turned
into "Things to Come," a
flick as far ahead of its time
as the German silent classic,
Along with numerous
other works, Legend Films
(www.legendfilms.net) has
colorized a fading print of
S"Things to Come," an act
the firm apparently believes
%will boost such movies'
Though the film's worth
saving, it's the message his

-work conveys that's impor-
Even Ray Harryhausen, the
monster maker in flicks such
as "Jason arid the
Argonauts," has thrown his
skills behind Legend's work.
Although much of this
film's special effects work is
almost laughable, it's Wells'
ideas that are being show-
He grew to manhood in a
world where groups such as
the Fabians (an apparent off-
shoot of Ludditism) actually
fought police in an effort to
stop scientific progress.
Much of this is alluded to in
film, giving today's citizens a
rarely seen perspective.
"Things to Come" stars
Raymond Massey ("Arsenic
and Old Lace"), but in many
ways, the flick won't please
movie buffs.
The colorization apparent-
ly didn't take well in this
unrated, 100-minute film; its

soundtrack is audibly flawed.
Still, this prescient epic of
endless war, pestilence, vigi-
lantism, dictatorship and
hope is both well done and
worth viewing.
In brief, war breaks out in
1940 among the world's
major powers. The already
frayed fabric of civilization
unravels in showers of
bombs, poison gas and dis-
Finally, by 2036, things
begin returning to "normal."
Not everyone wants this; the
world is fragmented into
small city-states.
Massev, a member of an
idealistic group dubbed
Wings Over the World,
becomes an emissary of
He's immediately impris-
oned by "Boss" Ralph
Richardson. His wife,
Margaretta Scott, favors a
different approach.
Without revealing the out-

come, viewers of this $30
DVD must resign themselves
to using imagination. Much
of what you'll see won't
mean squat without it.
Director William Cameron
Menzies ("Gone With the
Wind"i apparently inten-
tionally squeezed most char-
acter development out of it.
It's the flick's overall mes-
sage he wants to drive home!
About the only art this film
displays are its luscious art
deco sets.
Like most DVD's, it offers
numerous extras. They are
surprisingly worthwhile,
especially a segment about
the era's sci-fi toys.
If you're thoughtful and,
for example, enjoyed the
silent German classic,
"Metropolis," this flick's for
you.. : .
The '30s were a different
world, and: "Things To
Come" will give you a peak
behind the curtain.

Make some New Year's

resolutions for your home

F ew things fall by the way-
side after the New Year
faster than needles on a
Christmas tree than personal
So, instead of making a res-
olution to exercise, cut calo-
ries, stop smoking or other
things you know have failed
in the past, resolve to make
some changes at home.
These resolutions are more
likely to stick and be good
for everyone in the house,
Do the right thing
One of the first New Year
resolutions you could make
this year for your home is to
go a little greener.
This could include setting
up a recycling center in your
home or making a greater
effort at recycling items such
as newspapers and magazines,
glass, plastic, and cans.
Home centers carry large
stacking bins that you can
place right next to the garage
door and will help you sort
and hold your recyclables.
Doing right by your house
also means doing right by the
Making a few simple
changes like recycling and
changing your light bulbs to
fluorescent bulbs is good for
the earth and your utility
bills. It's a green thing.
Clear clutter
Yes, you've heard me say it
before, but clutter is a huge
problem and when you ask
most people what their No. 1
household problem is, they'll
tell you it's clutter.
\\'e continue to buy and
buy and that makes our
homes stuffed to capacity and
barely livable. Make a resolu-
tion to spend a small amount
of time on a regular interval
(say, dailvi to throw some-
thing away, recycle, or donate.
You know you have stuff
just hanging around the
house that you don't use any-

more, so why hang on to it?
Get clear this year.
Resolution to improve
Topping the list of my
favorite things to do at home
is to make annual goals for
my house. These goals range
from mulching landscape
beds, to painting a room or
even redecorating or buying a
new piece of furniture. I write
down all the things I want to
do on my list going from
smallest or least expensive
down to the largest, most
labor intensive or most expen-
sive. That list usually lives on
the refrigerator door and it's
amazing how great it feels to
scratch those items, one by
one, off my list.
If possible, make resolutions
that will improve your quality
of life. These can include an
item such as a new mattress -
especially when you consider
that one third of your life is
spent in bed a quality mat-
tress makes sense.
Some of the home improve-
ments I've been happiest
about include my pull-out
trash can that I installed
under the sink, the television
that we put in the kitchen so I
don't have to miss the
evening news while I make
dinner, and every single
organizing item I have ever
installed because they make
things easier to find, look
neater, and make me more

Pni..:. uDm.nT.l
This pull-out trashcan gets the trash out of sight and makes it easy to use with its simple, one-step pull-out feature. To make, I pur-
chased a pull-out trash can fixture at my local home center for about $40, removed the cabinet door myself and affixed it with
spacers to the pull-out mechanism, saving me over $150 on the cost of a door-mounted pull-out.
