PA GRf ParentS prevail: It's sharks over pirates

This new logo for Nease
High School was devel-
oped after Nease was
asked to stop using the
one that was nearly
identical to Florida
International U's logo.


The "sharks" took a chomp
out of the "pirates"
\Vednesday when a parent-
dominated committee voted
the big fish as mascot for the
new Ponte Vedra high school,
although students favored the
high-seas sacker.
The committee advising
Craig Speziale, principal of the
unnamed high school that
will be zoned for Ponte Vedra
Beach teens, voted 22 to 4 for
the sharks.


Some, St. Johns County resi-
dents want to have voters -
not county commissioners -
decide whether big changes in
the county's Comprehensive
Plan should be OK'd.
A citizen group is proposing
to add such a provision to the
St. Johns County charter that
is being proposed.
The charter, if OK'd by the
St. Johns County

image would inspire teens to
carry guns and knives, while
another envisioned "scantily
clad pirate wenches."
Although the 32-member
committee has nine student
members, only about half of
them were at the meeting
Wednesday to cast their votes
An informal survey at Nease
High School, however,
showed pirates the strong
favorite among ninth and
10th graders zoned for the
new school, which is sched-

The group. is asking civic
groups to support the provi-
sion, which would require a
vote for any development of
100 homes or more that
would require a change in the
Comp Plan, the county's road
map for future development.
The issue is expected to be
discussed at St. Johns County

In a telephone interview
Thursday, Speziale said that
the students voting at school
did not have the benefit of
detailed information and dis-
cussion relating to the mascot
choices, as the committee did.
The committee w\as shown
several slides ot pirate and
shark logos in variouss conhgu-
rations and colors

which logo they liked best,
then picked between an image
of a shark and one of a pirate
for the deciding vote.
Another advantage the
committee members had over
those taking the Nease survey,
Speziale said, is that the com-
mittee discussed different
aspects of what a mascot could
mean the school.
Parents members were con-

Others worried that female
students might dress up as

Other members said they
simply liked sharks because of
the prospect of the "Jaws"
theme being played at school
sporting events.

New athletic director chosen

The founder and president
of a consulting firm that
places high school athletes in
colleges has been selected as
the athletic director of the
new high school zoned for
Ponte Vedra teens.
Gene Baker of Brentwood,
Tenn., is expected to be
approved for the job Tuesday
by the St. Johns County
School Board. *
A former high school and
college head baseball coach
and athletic director, Baker
was the choice of Craig
Speziale, principal of the high
school being built near Davis
Park, about one mile west of
the Intracoastal Waterway.

The high school, whose
name is expected to be. select-
ed at Tuesday's School Board
meeting, is expected to open
in August.
"We did an extensive inter-
view with him. He had a lot of
the skills I thought were need-
ed," Speziale said Wednesday.
Baker has a B.S. in chem-
istry and a master's in health
and physical education from
Austin Pea\ State Utiiversity
in Clarkille, Tenn., where he
also served as assistant base-
ball coach.
He was also head baseball
coach at the University of
Louisville from 1990 to 1995.
Baker has experience teach-
ing middle school science and

is currently the president and
CEO of All-American Athlete
Consulting, which he found-
Jim Springfield, head of
human resources for the St.
Johns County School District,
said Thursday Baker must do
Some more paperwork before
being officially hired at
Tuesday's School Board meet-
ing, scheduled 6 p.m. at 40
Orange St., St. Augustine.
Speziale said he hopes Baker
will attend the Nov. 27 meet-
ing of the team advising him
on the new school. The meet-
ing is scheduled for 7 p.m. at
Landrum Middle School.

Reactions vary

on intersection

St. Johns County workers Wednesday added a
road sign and crosswalk enhancements that were
promised to Ponte Vedra Beach parents concerned
about a crowded bus stop on Solana Road.
Parental response to the changes varied from
"It's so tiny" to "Wait and see."
The new yield sign stands about 7 feet above
the ground and is 18 inches square.
The crosswalk enhancements consist of five
white triangles painted in the eastbound lane just
before the Golf View Circle intersection with
Solana (see photo at left).
Parents of middle schoolers have asked the
county and the School District to add safety meas-
ures to the area, where dozens of students catch
the bus in the morning at the same time that par-
ents are dropping off preschoolers nearby.
"That is it?" one parent responded Thursday
morning when another pointed to the sign. "It's
so tiny."
Comments also were made on the size of the

Teen video up for Emmy

"Global Warming: Fact or
Friction?" is the Emmy-nomi-
nated documentary produced
by Team Gaia, a local public
awareness organization devel-
oped by teenagers.
Producer Chase Finn, a jun-
ior at Douglas Anderson
School of the Arts, and editor
Shane Reilly-Rogers, a
Fletcher High senior, are at a
luncheon ceremony today at
the Rockefeller Center in New
York where the awards will be
presented [emmyonline.org].
The student-collaborated
internet documentary is nom-
inated in the category for
community service cam-
paign/broadband along with
programs such as MTV's
"Think HIV."
"It's a great honor and a
huge deal in the film indus-
try," said Rogers. "The recog-
nition is important so people
will check it out and realize
it's not just a bunch of teens
making films."

Chase Finn of Ponte Vedra Beach works on the film project at
Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, Jacksonville.

Team Gaia is a group of
high school students who are
raising awareness on global
issues through a web site,
[www.teamgaia.com], blogs
and podcasts. Team Gaia is
funded by Mark Smith who
founded the hurricane relief
not-for-profit organization
"From Jacksonville With

Love" after Hurricane Katrina.
His daughters, Dakota Light-
Smith, a freshman at Nease
High, and Cheyenne Light-
Smith, a senior at Douglas
Anderson School of the Arts,
are founding teen members
who wanted to make a differ-
ence after seeing Al Gore's
"An Inconvenient Truth."

'We don't want to turn into South Florida'

- VOTERS, from A-1

Walter Rohrer, a member of
the charter committee and
chairman of the Roundtable,
said adding the amendment
would improve the charter's
chances of being approved.
"We think the charter will be
strengthened by the provi-
sion," he said Wednesday in a
telephone interview.
Rohrer said the provision
would give voters greater over-
sight in managing growth in
the county.
"We don't want to turn this
section of Florida into South
Florida," he said.
The issue could be moot if
Florida voters approve a similar
provision that may go to voters

in the fall.
An organization known as
Hometown Democracy is work-
ing to get.enough signatures on
a petition to put the item on
November ballots.
That provision would require
that voters within a county
approve every Comp Plan
change in that county, regard-
less of the size of the proposed
SIf the referendum gets on the
ballot and passes, it would
supersede the proposed amend-
ment to the county charter.
Rohrer said that the pro-
posed ballot initiative is asking
too much.
"We're well aware of it. They

want to go much farther than
we do," Rohrer said.
"We're for controlled growth.
We're not out to stop the little
developments. But the big
developments should undergo
more scrutiny," he said.
Developers, realtors, and
other opponents of the
statewide ballot initiative are
fighting to keep it off the bal-
Some opponent say it would
be costly to go to the voters for
such changes. Others say voters
couldn't make informed deci-
sions on every issue.
St. Johns County
Commissioner Tom Manuel of
Ponte 'Vedra Beach agrees on

the latter point.
"That is exactly the reason
why our founding fathers creat-
ed a republic," he said in a tele-
phone interview Thursday. "It
deals with a lack of trust of
elected officials," he added.
Manuel said that even the
proposed charter amendment,
which he calls "Hometown
Democracy light," would make
the county unattractive to
commercial interests that could
increase the county's tax base.
"I'm totally against it," he
said of the proposed charter
Both the county and the
state proposal are "ill-con-
ceived," he said.

said. "We would love a whole
season to be scheduled."

The Leader's Opinion

Don't take our water to

slake South Florida's

self-generated thirst

A proposal to transfer 100 million gallons of water daily
from St. Johns River and its largest tributary, the Ocklawaha
River, to central and south Florida endangers future genera-
tions if the St. Johns River Water Management District allows
the wholesale use of river water for areas to the south.
That is the argument put forth by Neptune Beach City
Councilors who adopted a resolution this week asking the
water district not to allow a limited water resource "to be
used to continue unchecked growth in central and south
District officials have said the proposed transfer is a "com-
plex issue" but a district representative at a council meeting
could provide little "clarification."
That's because the issue is already clear. South and central
Florida have been developed without consideration to the
availability of basic resources and North Florida is now
expected to literally bail out areas with water shortages.
The Associated Press reports that Florida does not have
enough drinking water to meet the demand of its expected
population growth. Florida's annual use of 2.4.trillion gallons
of fresh water will increase to 3.3 trillion by 2025, according
to reports. Most of the state's growth will be in a 3-county
area around Miami.
But, to put it bluntly, it is not our fault that Orlando and
other areas to the south are thirsty.
Water utilities in central Florida are considering an expen-
sive pipeline to the Ocklawaha River to serve the booming
area. Moving water from one drainage basin to another is ill-
advised, according to environmentalists.
It's time to say enough is enough.
Central and South Florida have allowed rampant develop-
ment and now an area that once gushed with fresh water is
facing limits.
Rather than facing the limits with proactive measures and
development reforms, the area is trying to snatch at its
neighbors' liquid assets like a drunk who suddenly realizes
the bottle will soon be empty and only then worries about
being left high, and dry.
Neptune Beach's resolution should send a sobering mes-
sage to the district, as well as south and Central Florida, that
we will not countenance an essential resource being drained
off to quench the thirst of those who built without fore-
"We are growing at a rate that is no longer sustainable,"
Neil Armingeon of the St. Johns Riverkeeper, a non-profit cit-
izens group, told the Neptune Beach Council, describing the
proposed pipeline plan as "an experiment, pure and simple."
Neptune Beach is due credit for taking a stance and
Jacksonville Beach will take up the issue.later this month at
the insistence of Jacksonville Beach Councilor Lee Buck, who
is a Realtor.
"We seem to be slow learners when it comes to learning
from history," Buck said in cautioning against messing' with
Maybe we can quickly learn from South and Central
Florida that developing without considering the availability
-of-water and otherivital infrastructures ill.adviseds. -..ir.. ,o
Meanwhile, the Neptune Beach resolution should be a les-
son to South and Central Florida that actions have conse-
quences. We are unwilling to jeopardize our citizens' future
by having water siphoned off to slake the thirst of neighbors
who built with drunken abandon.

Letters to the editor:

Real water solution isn't borrowing

To the editor:
I strongly disagree with send-
ing North Florida water to
Central and South Florida.
They are in the position of
needing water from over popu-
lation and improper usage of
what water they had. If they
need water so badly they should
do as is being done on the
African Continent; desalinate
the ocean and/or utilize
machinery that literally pulls
water from the air.
I am sure that most of the res-
idents in North Florida have
seen the lakes in Keystone
Heights and the surrounding
area that are now just large
holes in the ground and have

nice boats sitting in the mud
and piers that are high and dry.
It makes no sense to allow
North Florida to become like
Central Georgia that is in dire
need of water. Currently the
governors of Florida, Georgia
and Alabama are attempting to
find a solution to water related
issues. The old cliche, "Robbing
Peter to pay Paul" strictly applies
here. It is the wrong thing to do
and is not a true solution to the
water issue. All this will do is
put North Florida in the same
position as Central and South
* Florida are in now.

Recalling a truly wonderful man who served many

To the editor:
A terrible tragedy occurred
on University Blvd on Saturday
evening, November 3rd which
took the life of Regis Burlas, a
Ponte Vedra resident who was
one of the most loved, admired
and respected men in north
Regis was traveling with his
wife Mary Burlas and fellow
Our Lady Star of the Sea parish-
ioner, Barbara Conway to the
last evening of the 40 Days For
Life Prayer Vigil when a vehicle
(traveling at high speed)
crashed into the back-side of
their car. Tragically, Regis died
instantaneously. Both Barbara

and Mary are expected to make
a full recovery.
Regis led an exemplary life in
every respect. He was a World
War II hero, having completed
well over 30 bombing raids on
Nazi Germany. However, the
vast majority of us will remem-
ber Regis for his ceaseless and
selfless acts of charity and
kindness to everyone he met.

man, who was tireless in his
dedication to do good for oth-

time to many local charities,

$135,000 on a "Tide Clock?!"
The city of Jacksonville Beach
voted last week to erect a "tide-

clock that wouldn't actually dis-
play time, but would instead dis-
play the current ocean tide.
Correct me. if I',m wrong, but

been telling us they could not

because of proposed property tax

Arlington resident and regular
customer at the Dunkin Donuts
on Beach Boulevard, didn't

at the chain's new store in

"Smiling faces. That's what

Rare is the customer who
walks into her shop and doesn't
know Snyder. Or, conversely,
that she doesn't know.
The 66-year-old has worked
for Dunkin Donuts for 13 years.
She started at the Beach
Boulevard store, worked eight
years at a satellite shop- in
Atlantic Beach, then returned to
Beach Boulevard, where she
worked until its renovation. At
that juncture, she moved to Al's
in Atlantic Beach, which is
where her current manager, Joey
Martins, found her. He asked
Snyder to work at the new shop.
"I enjoyed working at Al's,"
she said, but when Martins
called, "I said 'Yes' right away. I
love it. At Al's, even though I
was enjoying the work, I was
inside. I didn't deal with cus-

Michael Spivey of Atlantic
Beach has been a Snyder regular
for "at least 10 years, maybe 12.
Beach Boulevard was where we
started out," said Spivey, who
added that Snyder is the reason
he keeps coming back, that and
Dunkin Donuts itself.
"Yeah, the coffee's good."
But Snyder is even better.
"Conversation is good. "She's
always asking me about my
family, how I'm doing, my
work. She's even taught me a lit-
tle Spanish," said Spivey. "She's
definitely a people person."

Monday addressed the City
Council about his plans to
host an fashion show in con-
junction with Sutra salon to
benefit Children's Hospice.
Rouse is requesting that the
portion of 9th Avenue North
between 3rd and 4th streets be
closed between 6 p.m. and 10
p.m. Dec. 1 to accommodate
the event.
"We are willing to pay the
cost of the officers off duty to
patrol this with a minimum of
500 people," he said. "With
the event that I am planning I
would really like that space."
Rouse said his goal is to raise
between $50,000 and $75,000
and noted that actress Bo
Derek has expressed interest in
hosting the event.
"That is all I needed to
hear," Jacksonville Beach
Mayor Fland Sharp joked.
The event will feature a
fashion show sponsored by
Ford Models and a silent auc-
tion, he said.
Rouse said he could work
the event without the street
closure but said with Derek
and other "esteemed folks

coming to Jacksonville Beach
it would be ideal if we can."
Councilman Lee Buck
stressed that the event would
require the cooperation of all
the surrounding businesses
and residents that would be
impacted by the closure.
Sharp said he would confer
with staff to determine if there
was any "practical way"' to
facilitate the request.
"If there is, let's do it," he

Dee Snyder, who has been with Dunkin Donuts for 13 years and
has many loyal customers, works at the chain's Mayport Road

which is where she met her hus-
band, "an American guy," she
said with a laugh."
Snyder's brother was a mis-
sionary in Spain, which is where
she moved from Cuba.
"I met my husband in the
church, and we've been married
for 39 years," she said.
The couple, which has three
children, has lived at the
Beaches since 1971.
Many of Snyder's jobs have
been along Beach Boulevard.
She started with Angie's Pizza,
moved to the Cove and then
Point of View before heading to
Dunkin Donuts on Beach.
"I love Dunkin Donuts," said
Snyder, whose standard shift is 4
a.m.-12 p.m. Monday-Friday.
"I'm an early morning person."
Joanne Hastings of Atlantic
Beach, who taught at Mayport
Elementary for 30 years, got to
know Snyder because her chil-

dren went to that school.
"I would go to the Dunkin,
Donuts in Atlantic Beach," said
Hastings, "and she had many
regular customers who came all
'the time just because of her. She
has a cheerful word everytime
and cares about you."
As to how Martins found her,
he said, "When we opened the
store in June, Dee wasn't with
Dunkin anymore. So I called to
see if she wanted to come
aboard. She's been at the
Beaches for over 10 years, and
the customer base loves her.
She's there whenever I need her,
and she's somebody I can rely
on every day."
And it all comes back to the
customers for Snyder.
"My main thing is the cus-
tomers," she said. "I have the
greatest customers. When they
come through the door, they
are friends."

Arrest made

An Atlantic Beach caregiver
was arrested after allegedly
using a 90-year-old woman's
account to purchase a car and
other items, according to a
police report.
Franklin James Goodwin, 51,
was arrested for exploitation of
the elderly for $20,000 or more
but less than $100,000 on Nov.

Drive, according to the report.
Police had probable cause for
the arrest following a "well-
established pattern- of financial
abuse," according to the report.
Since Jan. 1, 2007, $17,211
has been removed from one of
the victim's accounts, police
said. Through the months of

AB cops to map out

where crime occurs

so citizens can easily

spot trend!


The Atlantic Beach Police
Department is working on
upgrades that will allow citi-
zens to learn more about
crime in the community,
according to officials.
The communications
department is undergoing
renovations to install upgrad-
ed dispatch equipment that
will allow citizens to view a
map where crimes, such as
burglaries, murders, rapes, lar-
cenies, robberies, auto thefts
and aggravated ..assaults, are
occurring throughout the
city, according to Atlantic
Beach Police Chief David
Police cars will have GPS
tracking devices installed
which will link all crime data
to maps, he said.
Thompson said that his
goal is to post this informa-
tion on the.city's Web site and
update it quarterly so resi-
dents can see where crimes
are being committed.
The department is also
working on plotting cell
phone calls to a map when
someone calls 911 so that dis-
patchers immediately know
the caller's location.

ICW meeting

planned in SC

The Atlantic, Intracoastal
Waterway Association (AIWA)
will hold its Annual Meeting
on November 15 16 in Myrtle
Beach, SC.
The meeting, at Kingston
Plantation, will feature reports
on the waterway's status from
the individual states it passes
through to new strategies to
"Keep the Waterway Working,"
this year's conference theme.
Stretching over 1,200 miles
from Norfolk, VA, to Miami,.
the waterway has been called
"the boater's Route 66," but it
is also a commercial trans-
portation route.
Two challenges face the
waterway today, according to
AIWA: minimal Congressional
appropriations for mainte-
nance and an awkward federal
budgeting process that fails to
recognize the waterway's
importance as a integral trans-
portation system for water-
borne commerce and recre-
ational vessel traffic along the
Eastern Seaboard.

Renewal seminar for parents of high school students


An interactive seminar for parents of high
school students led by licensed psychother-
apist Ross McDonough will be held from 7
to 9 p.m. on Monday.
Ponte Vedra United Methodist Church is
hosting the seminar which is open to the
public. It will be held at Ocean Palms
Elementary School at 355 Landrum Lane
in Ponte Vedra.
"The most important thing I want par-
ents to have as they walk out the door (at
the end of the seminar) is a renewed enthu-
siasm for being the most important influ-
ence in their teenager's life," said
Parents of high school students often
become frustrated. One of the most com-
mon responses they then have is to begin to
step back from their teen, he said.
"Even the best parents will have chal-
lenges staying connected with their kids
because they are wanting independence, to
be their own person."
When parents understand what teens are
going through, they are better able "to see
this as a developmental issue."
McDonough will address issues relating
to dating, curfew, driving, parties, and

friends in an interactive format.
The seminar will be "more like a conver-
sation.....where I will look to the crowd to
provide issues to discuss," he said.
Parents will also have the chance to par-
ticipate in small groups that will exchange
ideas and reflect on ways to handle differ-
ent scenarios.
McDonough has worked with families for
seven years and is with New Day
Counseling in Jacksonville Beach He will be
joined at the seminar by Dawn Sweeten, a
licensed clinical social worker.
For more information about the seminar
contact the PVUMC office at 280-5141.

The following are suggestions from
Ross McDonough on parenting high
school students.
"Teens need someone to set bound-
aries, expectations for behavior.
Parents who don't (do this) set kids up
to have to learn difficult lessons as
"Conflict in a family with teens is
unavoidable. If you can understand
what is happening, it's easier not to
take it so personally."

Some excuses hold water,
some don't.

"I didn't take drugs; it must
have been a tainted supple-
"My dentist prescribed
human growth hormone
because I was having a prob-
lem with my gums."
"I was drinking a lot of Jack
Daniels the night before, so
that's probably why my testos-
terone level was elevated."
"A masseuse with a grudge
must have rubbed testosterone
cream onto my legs to make
me fail the test."
"I had a big portion of veal,
and everyone knows they fat-
ten up cows with steroids.
That must be how it got into
my system."
Laugh if you want, but these
excuses and many like them
have been proffered by ath-
letes caught i doping scan-
It's up to sports fans
whether to bebeve them or
not Say what you will, but at
least there's some creativity
behind these -explanations." -
For the record, the laguars'
Marcus Stroud and man\' oth-
ers have tapped the "tainted
supplement" excuse. While
that's certainly a possibility,
it's hard to imagine nutnoonal
supplement manufacturers
adding costly steroids to the
pixie-stick powder they sell to
make protein shakes.
It was Cleveland Indians'
pitcher Paul Byrd who offered
the "dentist prescribed it" rea-
soning before Game 7 of the
ALCS after being linked to an
online pharmacy selling
growth hormone.
His reward? Cleveland just
signed Byrd to a S7.5 million
contract to pitch next season.
Cychst Floyd Landis came
up with the "lack Daniels
defense" after a test found ele-
vated testosterone levels dur-
ing year's Tour de France. A
day after the drinking excuse,
Landis came up with another
explanation: He claimed
abnormally high testosterone
levels are a natural occurrence
in his body. and nobody
should judge him for that.
Sprinter justin Gatlin, who
after setting a world record in
the 100 meters proclaimed
that if he ever failed a drug
test'the sport of track and field
would collapse, served up the
"disgruntled masseuse" alibi.
Creative? Yes. Believable? Uh,
you make the call.
Tennis star Peter Korda is
credited with enlightening us
on the dangers of tainted veal.
Korda flunked a test for the
banned steroid nandrolene
following a match at
Wimbledon in 1998. Scientists
scoffed you'd have to eat 40
calves a day for 20 years to
reach the level of nandrolene
found in Korda's system but
it was a good try.
Few and far between are the
men and women who admit
taking performance-enhancing
drugs for the expressed pur-
pose of, well, enhancing per-
formance. When caught, ath-
letes are always uninformed
dupes who trusted a coach,
doctor or supplement compa-
ny that led them astray.
And why not? Sports fans
are a forgiving lot. In baseball
and football especially, we've
seen stars like Shawne Merri-
man, Rodney Harrison and
Jason Giambi welcomed back
by teammates and paying cus-
tomers alike after enduring
suspensions and suspicions.
As long as they can resume
their high-paying careers with-
out much of a stain, the temp-.
tation to cheat will remain.

SPanthers in regional final


The Nease High volleyball team moved one
game closer to another trip to the state finals
after a convincing win against visiting Belleview
Tuesday night.
The Panthers ended the
Rattlers season with an easy-look-

home, setting up a Class 4A
regional final against Bishop
Moore at home on Saturday.

head coach Dawn Madden said
following the contest. "We made
it look easy because we really

kids were firing away. Everything
just came together.

ing 14 straight points en route
to a 25-4 game.
Cangelosi finished the second game with 16
points and the match with 26 service points, the
most by a Panther this season since freshman
Holland Hoefnagel served 20 points against
Stanton in a match earlier this season.
Cangelosi, whom assistant coach C.J. Sherman
called "the star of the evening," finished with

six aces, six digs and six kills in the match.
The Panthers got 35 assists from setter
Kamryn Sherman, who also recorded 10 digs
and three blocks in the match. Hoefnagel added
another six aces for the Panthers.
Paige DePreist recorded 12 kills and 10 digs in

Against Bishop Moore, the Panthers defeated

"I think we have a strong chance," Madden
said. "They are a strong team and really well-

Surgery is the usual remedy

for an Achilles tendon tear

Q t question: Dr. Smith, my
Sdad tore his Achilles
tendon? What's he in

Answer: The Achilles ten-
don is the thick cord that you
feel at the back of your heel,
which attaches the calf muscle
to the heel bone.
While the Achilles is the
strongest tendon in the body,
Achilles tendon ruptures are
common in the "weekend
warrior" as well as the pro-
fessional athlete.
Usually occurring in males
aged 25-45, the athlete will
feel a sudden snap in the back
of his leg as. if he has been
kicked, and then is usually
unable to walk due to the
pain. Loss of the Achilles also
would.make it very difficult to
run, jump, and push off
through your ankle.
The tendon is named after
the ancient Greek hero of the
.Trojan War.
Mythical legends tell the
story of Achilles' mother dip-
ping him in the river Styx in
order to make him immortal.
However, she held him by the
heel, which did not get
immersed in the water, and
thus he was vulnerable here.
After many adventures and
victories Achilles was killed
by an arrow shot into his
heel. As a result of the
Achilles legend, the expres-
sion "Achilles heel" came to
mean a fatal vulnerability, and
the tendon connecting the
heel to the calf became
known as the Achilles tendon.
A physical exam is usually
all you need in order to tell
whether or not you have rup-
tured your Achilles. When
your exam suggests that you
might not have torn all of
your tendon, an MRI may be
The exam usually shows a
swollen calf, without signifi-
cant bruising, and a palpable
defect where the normally
taught tendon cord should be.
At surgery, the ruptured
ends of the tendon are pulled
back together and then held

Waves cooperate for

Teen Council event

The 7th Annual ESA/Atlantic
Beach Teen Council Surf
Contest ran smoothly last
Sunday at The Poles in Hanna
As the late-blooming
Hurricane Noel passed by, per-
fect surfing conditions were on
offer all day for the eight divi-
sions of under-18 contestants.
Some say the ultimate goal
of surfing is to ride inside the
tube, or curling part of the
wave. Many tubes were ridden
during the competition, a very
rare site in Florida, much less
during a contest.
ii Junior Longboard winner
Dylan. Andrews had the crowd
cheering when he disappeared
from view for several seconds
before reemerging from per-
haps the deepest barrel of the
day, earning himself a near-
perfect score in his final.
Junior Men's winner Brent
Lamprecht also logged some
tube-time in the Final to domi-
nate the field of 15- to 17-year-
old competitors.

World War II exhibit opens at Beach museum

The Beaches Museum &
History Center is hosting a trav-
eling. exhibition, Florida in
World War II, on loan from the
Museum of Florida History in
Tallahassee through January 12,
The exhibit includes items
such as life on the home front,
military training, the German
U-boat threat, and Floridians in
military service.
Visitors to the museum will
have an opportunity to learn,
about Florida's contributions to
the war effort and the lasting
impact that the war had on the
state, according to museum
director Holly Beasley.
"Few Floridians even then -
could have imagined it either.
The war stimulated economic
development and led to a post-
war population surge," Beasley
said, explaining the importance
of the exhibit. "The United
States' involvement in World
War II set into motion forces
that would dramatically change
both Florida and the nation.
With these rapid changes, the
war moved Florida from a
sleepy, southern state and into
the modem age.
There were 172 military
camps, air stations, bases, etc, in
the state of Florida by the mid-
dle of the war and nearby Camp
Blanding became Florida's
fourth largest "city" and the
.state's largest Army infantry
training camp. About 248,000
Floridians served in the armed
forces, with over 4,600 of them
losing their lives during the war.
The exhibit also includes
information on the German U-
boat attacks that native beach
dwellers still talk about. In April
1942, U-boat number 123 torpe-
doed the SS Gulfamerica off the
coast of Jacksonville Beach -
close enough to shore for resi-
dents to see from the end of a
pier. Attacks like this caused
then Gov. Holland to order
coastal blackouts.
"World War II made an
impact on Florida in so many
ways. Visit the exhibition to

find out much more about our
role in the military, on the
home front, and what hap-
pened to Florida after the war,"
Beasley said.
These Nine, a local compo-
nent to the exhibition, hangs in
the lobby of the museum. The
exhibit features nine local men
who lost their lives in military
service during World War II and
provides a photograph of each
along with some additional
information for most. The Nine
are Lt. Junior Grade Richard
Bull, USN; 2nd Lt. John J.
Ahern Jr., USA; Pfc. Ivan R.
Wellington, USA; Pvt. Kenjiro
Yoshida, USA; Cpl. Ottis O.
Boxx, USMC; Pvt. Asbury R.
Kelly, USMC; Lt. John W. Deam,
USA; 1st Class Machinist's Mate
Charles Byron Mann, USN; and
Staff Sgt. Robert B. David, USA.
"The museum is indebted to
Johnny Woodhouse, Associate
Editor at The Leader, for provid-
ing the text and many of the
images for the exhibition,"
Beasley said. "By way of a long-
time interest in military history
as well as local history, Mr.
Woodhouse collected the pho-
tographs, contacted family
members, and did painstaking
research to provide the nucleus
of this exhibition."
Family Ihembers and friends
of the war heroes listed above
who have information regard-
ing their war service or life here
at the beach, are asked to con-
tact the museum at 241-5657.
And, in honor of Pearl Harbor
Day, the museum will host a
lecture on December 6 at 6:30
p.m. by Dr. Michael Gannon,
Professor Emeritus of History at
the University of Florida and
author of numerous books, sev-
eral of which will be available
for purchase and signing after
the lecture.
For the duration of the exhi-
bition, the Beaches Museum
will offer discount admission
($1 off regular) to all military
personnel and family members
with IDs.

"These Nine Beaches area ser-
vicemen who gave their lives for
their country during World War
II were but a drop in a vast sea
of American war dead. They

hailed from Mayport, Palm
Valley, Jacksonville Beach and
Atlantic Beach. They represent-
ed all four major branches of
the U.S. military...They were
pilots, paratroopers, infantry-
men and Marines between the
ages of 19 and 34. They ranged
in rank from lowly privates to
rising lieutenants... As a group,
These Nine were recipients of
almost every major decoration

for valor short of the
Congressional Medal of Honor.
Their deaths were both heroic
and tragic. Their passing devas-
tating to the families they left
behind: These Nine were but a
few of the more than 400,000
Americans who died in the war,
but they were special to us
because they were our own."

Flat tires.

No longer a valid excuse for being late.

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

A flag flies for Bunting

S or years, an American
flag has flown over the
gravesite of Pfc. Dennis
Bunting in Madison, Fla
A member of the Army's
101st Airborne Division in
Vietnam, Bunting was killed
in combat on Sept. 17, 1966.
He was 10 days shy of his
20th birthday.
A 1965 Fletcher High Schoo
graduate, Bunting was part of
a M60 machine gun crew that
was overrun by enemy forces.
SHe died defending a hilltop
Command post. Nine other
101st troopers died in the hor
rific midnight attack, includ-
ing the unit's two highest-
ranking officers.
As a result of the incident,
the Army changed the way its
combat units operated in the
jungles of Vietnam.
"The lessons learned from
that incident were actually
taught at West Point for many
years," Doug Field, a Vietnam
veteran and one of 15 soldiers
who survived the firefight on
Hill 86, recalled in a phone
"The clear lesson learned
was at no other time was a
command post allowed to sta)
in one fixed location for more
than 48 hours."
Field said "many future lives
were'saved" because of what
transpired that day on Hill 86.

..Bunting's foster father,
James L. Johnson of Neptune
Beach, was the first to fly a
flag over Bunting's grave at
.Madisgno Qak 1idge"..,

1965: Dennis Bunting was a
grocery clerk at the Beaches.

Shortly after the soldier's
death,.Johnson had a 30-foot
flagpole erected near the
S grave. On Memorial Day and
Veterans Dayi, Tohnson would
travel to Madison, where
Bunting was born, and fly the
flag until sunset.
Then one day Johnson
stopped coming. No one in
y the Bunting family knows
Bill Bunting, a first cousin of
s the soldier, took over the flag
duties several years agp, but
Instead of flying it only on
patriotic holidays, the
Madison native raises and
lowers the flag every day at
the cemetery.
"We have had to change
i flags several times," Bill
Bunting said as he lowered the

flag on a recent Friday after-
noon in Madison, about 110
miles west of Jacksonville.
Bill Bunting was a junior at
the University of Florida when
his cousin was killed in com-
bat. He remembers returning
to the UF campus after his
cousin's funeral and feeling "a
great sense of pride" for a fam-
ily member who died for his

'No fear in his eyes'
Dennis Bunting was one of
14 children. His oldest broth-
er, Bob, served in the 82nd
Airborne Division and was
deployed to Vietnam in the
late 1950s as a member of the
16th Military Advisory Group.
"Dennis said, 'I'm going air-
borne, too, but I'm joining the
101st,' Bob Bunting recalled
in a phone interview.
"I had dinner with Dennis a
few days before he left for
Vietnam and I kept asking
him, 'Is this something you
really want to do?' He said,
'I'm ready.' You could see no
fear in his eyes."
Dennis Bunting graduated
from Fletcher in June 1965
and enlisted in the Army in
October of that year. Aftei
high school, he worked as a
grocery store clerk before
* reporting for basic training at
Fort Gordon, Ga.
Aftel graduating from boot
.camp, Bunting earned his
jump wings at Fort Benning,
Ga. He was assigned to the
S327th Parachute Infantry
Regiment, a renown unit in
the 101st that earned

who is looking forward to the

you that it is not too early to
expect a freeze warning, so for
those who live way out in the
boonies, stay on top of the
weather forecasts and be sure
and cover any tropical plants.

PBTS opens dark

comedy tonight

Players By The Sea presents
"Wrong Turn at Lungfish,"
an off-Broadway hit, today at
8 p.m. in the Grace Darling '
Studio Theatre, 106 6th St.
N., Jacksonville Beach.
The adult comedy delivers
some meaningful messages
in a very funny fashion.
Written by Garry Marshall
and Lowell Ganz and direct-
ed by Jason Collins, the play
also runs Nov. 10 15,16,17 at
8 p.m. and 2 p.m. Sunday,
Nov. 11. Tickets are $12.
"Lungfish" is a Pygmalian-
like story set in a hospital
room, in which the older,
more educated character tries
to teach the ignorant-yet-
lovely younger character a
thing or two about life.
But it is perhaps what he
learns from her that is the
greater lesson. Thrown in for
good measure are philosophi-
cal discussions about the
meaning of life, and the con-
templation of it at the
approaching time of death.
Peter Ravenswall (Roger

Lowe) is an almost blind ter-
minal patient who is so
grumpy he has his student
nurse (Renee LaCroix) at her
wit's end.
He doesn't have a "real
nurse" because none of them
will put up with him. He
allows no one to come to see
him except Anita Merendino,
(CeeCee Hayes) a ditzy vol-
unteer reader who refuses to
go away, no matter how
many verbal barbs he show-
ers upon her. She is a young
blue collar girl, both sexy
and manipulative, with a
jealous boyfriend.
In spite of himself, this
curmudgeon fails to prevent
the young woman from wig-
gling into his heart. Then
blind Peter tries to take on
the.punk himself in a fight
scene. In this poignant com-
edy our intellectual odd cou-
ple finds that within each
other lies the missing link in
their own personal evolu-

Bunting: Died a hero on hilltop CP


Cont. from B-1
the nickname "The Bastogne
Bulldogs" during World War
Bunting came from a long
line of military ancestors, but
was not prone to fighting,
according to his older brother.
"Most of the Bunting boys
were incorrigible,'but Dennis
was on the softer side," said
Bob Bunting, who spent time
at a boys reformatory in
Marianna, Fla., before joining
the Army.
"He would walk away from*
a fight."

Decorated rifle company
Bunting arrived in Vietnam
in late April 1966 as the war
was ramping up. American
forces in the region would
total 385,000 by the end of
that year.
A new combat tactic known
as search and destroy was
under way when Bunting got
According to a battlefield
timeline of the war, "U.S.
forces launched four search
and destroy missions" in
February 1966 "hoping for
head-on clashes with the
"Although there were two
minor clashes with Vietcong
regiments, there were no
major conflicts."
That changed quickly.
By late June 1966, Bunting's
unit, Bravo Company, 2nd
Battalion, 327th Infantry, had
fought in two major battles:
One at Dak To and another in
the enemy-infested Trung
Luong valley.
The battalion earned
Presidential Unit Citations for
both operations, making
Bravo Company at the time
one of the most decorated
rifle units in Vietnam.
Doug Field, who arrived in
Vietnam a month before
Bunting and served a total of
19 months in combat, said
the 327th was a tight-knit
"We were all volunteers.
That was a bond we had,"
Field recalled.
"Our company commander
was extremely aggressive. I
think that was one of the rea-
sons why B company was
offered so many difficult mis-

death on Hilll-86foturt months
A graduate of Virginia
Military Institute, Mack
earned a bachelor's degree in
electrical engineering and was
the father of 6-month-old son.
He also was a Green Beret
who spent two years at Fort
Campbell, Ky., where the
101st was based, before report-
ing to Vietnam in January

Hot chow on Hill 86
The battalion's base camp at
Tuy Hoa was located on a
coastline fronting the South
China Sea.
Troopers slept on the sandy
ground, using their ponchos
as pup tents or blankets.
Meals were mainly C-rations.
According to Field, who
wrote a detailed account of
his experience on Hill 86 in
the magazine "The First
Screaming Eagles in Vietnam,"
Bravo company was conduct-
ing search and destroy mis-
sions near the village of Tuy
An in September 1966.
"Since finding and fixing
enemy targets was one of the
most challenging and frustrat-
ing elements of combat U.S.
troops encountered in
Vietnam, Capt. Mack had
maintained his command post
on Hill 86 for almost two
weeks in an effort to draw out
the NVA/VC forces," Field's
magazine article says.
"Unfortunately, on Sept. 17,
his plan backfired and the
enemy took advantage of the
limited security at the CP to
inflict a devastating blow to
the very heart of the company
That night, Field said, hot
chow was flown in by helicop-
ter for troopers on Hill 86.
The rocky, 300-foot-high rise
stood out from the surround-
ing rice paddies and corn-
fields, and allowed the com-
pany's command element and

Field can't recall what the
unit ate that last night on the
hill, only that it was served
hot and on white paper
"It was a real treat for us,"
Field said in a phone inter-
After chow, Field said;
defensive positions were set
up on the triangular-shaped
hill. The M60 machine gun
crew that included Bunting
and Spc. Bill Siegert, 19, of
Duncanville, Texas, were posi-
tioned on the hill's most vul-
nerable side.
Complicating matters for
the few men who were guard-
ing the CP that night was the
fact that most of Bravo com-
pany was some distance away
from the hill and spread out
in night ambush positions,
Field said.
"We had zero cover on that
hill," said Field, adding that
the only reason he and
Bunting were at the CP that
ill-fated night was because it
was their turn to pull guard
"The enemy planned their
attack on a rainy night when
we were understaffed and
could not call for any air sup-
port. It was a perfect storm for

Field's account of the inci-
Bunting and Siegert, both
19-year-olds with a combined
16 months of combat experi-
ence under their belts, took
the brunt of the first of two
enemy assaults.
"Enemy sappers throwing
satchel charges and grenades
attacked and overran the M60
position and sprinted inside
the perimeter," said Field, who
was wounded in the initial
mortar barrage and later by
'grenade fragments.
"The charge overwhelmed
us completely. The enemy had
even cut the wires on our
claymore mines. When the
sun came up, it was an
absolute scene of carnage."
In addition to Bunting and
Siegert, the dead included
Mack, his executive officer,
1st Lt. George Pearson, 25, 1st
Lt. Alan O'Brien, 24, Staff Sgt.
Leonard Burrow, 33, Sgt.
Michael Nations, 20, Spc.
James Lockwood, 20, Pfc.
Atlas Smay, 19, and Pfc. Frank
Douglas, 19.
Acting 1st Sgt. James
Hargrove died of his wounds
12 days later. A few of the.
dead were short-timers due to
leave Vietnam in the coming
According to a company
roster dated Sept. 11, 1966,
Mack was due to rotate back
to the states in January 1967.
"He was awaiting orders to
be promoted to major and,
pending an order, was to go to
West Point to be a math
instructor," David Cook, a
spokesperson with the 327th
Airborne Infantry Association,
said in a phone interview.
Field recovered from his
wounds and volunteered for a
second 12-month tour of duty
in Vietnam. He went on to
graduate from Rutgers
University and has spent the
past 39 years in the airline

business, the last 16 as general
manager of sales for Delta Air

A sister's need to know
For years, Charlene Ganzer,
Bunting's sister, wondered
about the circumstances of
her brother's death in
All she could find at the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial,
where her brother's name is
listed on panel 10E, Row 104,
was that he died "a hostile
death" in an "unknown
"It started bothering me
that I didn't know how he
died," Ganzer said recently in
a phone interview from her
California home.
"I wanted to set up a
memorial for him in my yard.
I had no clue until I spoke to
Doug Field."
In 2002, Ganzer posted an
e-mail inquiry about her
brother on a 101st Airborne
Association website. Field saw
the post at screamingea-
gles327thvietnam.com, and e-
mailed Ganzer back with a
short but detailed account of
what happened on Hill 86.
"I served with your brother,
Dennis, in B company, and
was with him the night he
was killed," Field's e-mail said.
"We were on a hill north of
Tuy Hoa and were overrun by
a large enemy force, which
outnumbered us 10 to 1.
Dennis and I were two of only
nine men thatoattempted to
edefenPrilt e pet fie~te.-' li
"It is a miracle that any of
us survived that terrible night.
I did not know Dennis very
well. But I will tell you he
died a hero fighting for his
country, and most important-
ly for his fellow 101st
Airborne troopers."
Ganzer was 13 when she
attended her brother's funeral
in Madison. "I saw him in his
casket, fingers missing, head
stitched up, and wondered
why he had to die," Ganzer
said in the 2002 e-mail to the
101st Airborne website.
"I named my son after him.
And I pray he is proud that he
has a namesake."
In 2003, Bob Bunting also
posted an e-mail tribute to his
brother at the 101st website.
"You were the quiet one. I
often think of you and what a
good man you would have
become," the e-mail says. "I
am blessed with two children,
a daughter and a son. We
named him David Lance and
he reminds me so much of
Bob Bunting, who lives in
Largo, Fla., said his mother,
who was a single parent on
welfare when Dennis went to
live with Johnson in Neptune
Beach, wanted her middle son
to be buried in a Bunting fam-
ily plot in Madison.
Several years ago when Bob
Bunting visited that family
plot, he was surprised to see
the flag flying over his broth-
er's gravesite.
"I asked Bill who was doing
that and he said, 'I am.' It's
wonderful what he's doing."
"What a great way to honor
Dennis' memory," added
Said Ganzer, who applied
for and received several of her
brother's medals, including
the Bronze Star, which was
awarded posthumously: "I
think it should be done for all
of them."

Matheson: Be especially vigilant with white scaly Sago Palms

I bought many jars for Christmas
gifts and will probably purchase even
more if there are any left. My favorites
are Calamondin preserves which taste
like a tart marmalade, and something
called, "Spicy Kumquat," a delicious
The group made 'some jams that are
sugar free, and there are also a variety
of honeys, which came from a honey
producer not far from here, as well as

some grits and corn meal from the
Agrirama in Tifton, Ga. Some favorite
jams were Kiwi Watermelon, Lemon
Blueberry, Candy Apple, Hot Pepper
Jelly, and Hibiscus Grape. So get on
down there if you want some truly
homemade local treats.
A quick word about pruning
bougainvillea now. The experts say not
if you want any blooms during the
fall, winter and spring. Bougainvillea
blooms on this year's ( or on current)

growth, so if you prune those long,
prickly stalks, you'll have no chance of
flowers. And we all know how hard
the things are to get to bloom as it is.
Be especially vigilant with your Sago
Palms because I am seeing tons of
fronds which are completely coated on
the underside with white scale. Try a
horticultural oil spray but be careful of
temperature restrictions, or call the
Extension Office for guidance.
There is a major problem happening

with Sago's and a Master Gardener
may have to help you diagnose
whether yours are suffering from it.
There are few ways to get rid of the
problem. You can also type in Sago
Problem Insects on the web and read,
up on what might be going on with
your plant.
It is not a good thing..
Sorry to cut this short, but you know
I'll make up for it one of these

Fred Claus (Vince Vaughn) is a fast-talking repo man who has run out of luck and money and agrees to come to the North
Pole and help his brother Nickolas (Paul Giamatti) in Santa's workshop in the PG-rated comedy "Fred Claus."

'Bee Movie' is animated emptiness

he insect hero of "Bee
Movie" is angiy that
bees are given only one
job that literally works them
to death. But at least bees
have 'one reason for their
existence, which is one more
than "Bee Movie" has.
The film, like many feature
cartoons of late, is beautiful-
ly animated emptiness. It's
lovely to look at, but then
there's that troubling little
detail called a story.
The P.R. mill tells us that

human world.
Sadly, the one human
Barry chooses to speak to is a
vacuous florist named
Vanessa (Renee Zellweger).
This movie labors mightily
over this slightly-above-pla-
tonic relationship But if you

love affairs between babes
and nerds are implausible,
try working up a lather about
the impending love affair

between a babe and an
From there, the movie
veers into...not even a sub-
plot,-more-like a side-plot.
Barry discovers that genera-
tions of bees have labored to
produce the honey that
mean old humans casually
swipe for themselves.
.So Barry launches a lawsuit
to get the bees' honey
returned to his own kind.
After that, the movie veers
into a pro-environmental
message, which ertain1l hla
its place. But that placeiprob-

Seinfeld already has a huge

If bees could reason, I'm sure
they'd be thrilled that their
story is being told thought-
fully told.
Me, I'm not so moved.
The movie's tone is so des-
perate, the movie should
have a drummer just off-

screen, doing rim shots for
each one-liner. Seinfeld does
Barry as the type of screechi-
ly bad comic that his TV
show used to lampoon.
And the rest of the movie
is "Flintstones"-type stuff,
with cutesy jokes about
workaday life, celebrity
cameos (Larry King plays
himself as a bee hysteri-
cal!), and lots of bad bee
Even the movie's basic idea
is a rip-off remember
DreamWorks' "Antz" (1998),
with Woody Alien as a drone;
ant? It's been almost a
decade since a stand-up
comic made his cartoon
debut as a non-conformist
DreamWorks, I promise,
nobody will complain if you
let the concept die right
"Bee Movie" is rated PG for
minor innuendo and bath-
room humor.

Beatles movie still needs 'Help!'

"Help!" (1965; new on
DVD this week) was an
inevitable sequel of sorts, to
"A Hard Day's Night," The
Beatles' surprisingly success-
ful movie debut of the previ-
ou's year. Yet "Help!" lacks
some of the previous film's
spontaneity and joy.
It's not for lack of a pedi-
gree. "Night's" groundbreak-
ing director, Richard Lester,
was at the helm again.The
cast sports respected British
actors such as Leo McKern
(later to star in the TV series
"Rumpole of the Bailey") and
"Night" co-star Victor
Spinetti. And the previous
film's penny-pinching is
replaced by big-budget color
and international settings.
Yet the care and thought
given to "A Hard Day's
Night" is replaced by a
"Whatever!" attitude. John
Lennon later complained
that nobody ever tried to
explain the movie's plot to
the Beatles. Paul McCartney

said that many of the
movie's exotic locations were
simply a result of the Beatles
saying things such as, "We've
never been to the Bahamas.
Could we do a scene there?"
And long after their break-
up, all four of the Beatles
freely admitted that they
filmed much of the movie'
while under the influence of
marijuana, to which they'd
recently been introduced by
Bob Dylan. So while The
Beatles certainly star in the
movie, their minds are obvi-
ously elsewhere. (Lennon
later said the movie's title
tune was indeed a subcon-
scious cry for help.)
The plot is that a ring
intended for a sacrificial vic-
tim in India ends up on the
finger of drummer Ringo
Starr. A swami (McKern)
decides that since Ringo is
wearing the ring, he'll be the
sacrifice. And the chase is

yoith and performing great
songs for the soundtrack?
The trouble is that, inter-
national locations notwith-
standing, the movie never
really goes anywhere.
The movie's gag sense is as
lackadaisical as the Beatles'
location requests. We've got
a mad scientist (Spinetti);
let's make him shrink one of
the Beatles down to match-
stick size. Let's drag in
Scotland Yard and turn them
into the Keystone Kops.
Heck, let's put in everything
but the kitchen sink!
For Beatles buffs, some of
the movie's best jokes are the
"inside" ones.
And the movie is best-
known for introducing
George Harrison to the sitar
and Indian culture in gener-
al, which inspired the flower-
ing of the Beatles' most cre-
ative musical period.
The DVD includes a mak-
ing-of documentary, a cast-
and-crew interview, and.
other minutia about as blase
as the movie itself.

Honor Our Veterans with Special License Plate
Once local veterans'nursing home built, licenseplate funds will help them
ST. AUGUSTINE Purchase of a Florida Salutes Veterans specialty license plate will support
veterans statewide, but starting as early as late 2009, revenue will be assisting those residing at the
new veterans' nursing home to be constructed near World Golf Village here in St. Johns County.
The Florida Salutes Veterans license plate can be purchased for the price of vehicle registration plus
an additional $15 annual fee. One hundred percent of the $15 is distributed to the State Homes for
Veterans Trust Fund, administered by the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, according to
Nancy Schiellerd with the FDVA.
As of October 2007, a total of 241 Florida Salutes Veterans license plates have been purchased or
renewed in St. Johns County this year. Statewide, a total of 19,124 have been purchased or renewed
during the same timeframe, resulting in $286,860 generated for veterans in nursing homes owned
by Florida Department of Veterans Affairs.
"God forgive us for the careless and abusive attitudes so many of us display toward our liberties
obtained through the hard-fought efforts of our forebears," said Dennis W. Hollingsworth, St. Johns
County Tax Collector. "We enjoy the luxuries of our current lives because of the veterans who
dedicated their lives, their time and their talents, who have gone before us. Purchase of a Florida
Salutes Veterans plate is not just a visual expression of our thanks to veterans," Hollingsworth
continued. "It is a tangible means of repaying the brave men and women to whom we owe our lives
and freedom."
According to St. Johns County and the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, one of the issues to
be determined at a site visit this week to the nursing home property in the World Commerce Center
is the date for a groundbreaking in spring 2008, with construction completed by late 2009.

The year was 1907. The place was
SNew York City. The event was the
American premiere of the "The
Merry Widow." Since that magi-
cal moment, Franz Lehar's
masterpiece has charmed and
dazzled audiences. Lehar created
a happy unity between art and
entertainment, leading the way tb the greatest musicals of
Broadway and Hollywood. Hit tunes, including "Vilia"
and "The Merry Widow Waltz," advance a love story
peppered with broad comedy. This beautiful production,
performed ini English is accessible to everyone, while
retaining the European flavor of the original. Producers
whose work has been*called "exemplary" by The NeW
York Times treat every audience to a gala centennial

"Lara is really an interesting
person. I've never had some-
one in my class who has done
something like this," Fletcher
High School teacher Amy
Minton says enthusiastically.
Lara Lombardo, a Fletcher
High School exceptional edu-
cation student (ESE), is the
published children's book illus-
trator of the "Midnight the
Cow" series.
The first book in the series,
Midnight the Cow Learns
About Sharing, is on shelves
now. "I'm really proud of this
book," Lara declared. "I think
the book is great."
Lara said pictures have
always expressed a thousand
words, explaining her draw-.
ings convey what lies within
her heart far more than her
words can.
At the age of two, Lara was
diagnosed with autism.
Without letting her disability
hold her back, she has discov-
ered new forms of communica-
tion and self-expression.
Her capricious artwork in the
"Midnight the Cow" book has
brought joy to countless chil-
dren and is designed to help

Plastics pollute beachfronts

and endanger sealife

Many are accustomed to
finding plastic items on local
beaches this summer, partic-
ipants in one day camp col-
lected 123 pieces of trash on
one visit to a little-used
beach. Many of the items col-
lected were plastic.
Unfortunately, plastics do not
biodegrade. As they age and
weather, plastics simply break
apart into smaller and smaller
Beaches around the world
are littered with plastic debris.
Even the most remote islands,
uninhabited by human
beings, are becoming inun-
dated with non-biodegradable
The Algalita Marne
Research Foundation,- based
in Los Angeles, CA conducted
a plankton tow in the north-
ern Pacific Ocean using a
meshnet They found that
plastic debris in the North
Pacific Gyre outnumbered
zooplankton by a ratio of 6:1
by mass, and it is increasing.
For more- information on
Algalita's research, see www.
algalita.org. Plastics are show-
ing up more and. more in
marine food chains even in
the digestive tracts of zoo-
plankton, and in the stom-
achs of baby sea turtles who
have washed back to shore
within a few days to a few
weeks cf hatching.
To reduce the amount of
plastic entering oceans:
Recycle as much as possible.
Plastics coded with a "1" or "2"
can be recycled by most curb-
side programs. Monofilament
fishing line can be recycled at
many tackle shops and many
fishing locations around
Florida (and elsewhere). See
m for more information.
Plastic shopping bags can be
recycled at many stores-.
Choose to buy glass rather
than plastic containers when
possible. Glass and much of
our beach sand have the same
chemical composition, so
ground up glass is essentially
the sam thing as silica-based
beach sand.
Do not release balloons into
the air. They will come down

somewhere, and may be
washed into the rivers, lakes,
or the ocean where they can
be mistaken for jellyfish by
animals like leatherback sea
turtles and ocean sunfish
which feed on jellyfish almost
It is illegal, under state law,

to release balloons which
have curling ribbon (or any
ribbon or string) attached.
Permits from the circuit
courts are required for release
of more than 9 balloons.

Plenty of inexpensive

wines to choose from

W e are constantly
amazed by the num-
ber of wines on the
market that cost less than $15.
There used to be a time when
we had to search hard for
every-day plonk that will
deliver good fruit for the
money. Now, the rush of
wines from South America,
Australia and Spain shows
that there are plenty of inex-
pensive wines for the con-
sumer to choose from.
Several months ago we visit-
ed with Peter Gago, winemak-
er at Penfolds, known for its
legendary Grange but also for
its value wines made under
the Koonunga Hills label.
Penfolds started to blend its
shiraz and cabernet in 1976
and sold it to the locals for $2
a bottle. Today, the wine is
$11 still a steal more than
30 years later.
SThere are six different wines
made under the Koonunga
Hills label and all.are great
values. They aren't meant to
be aged, yet we were stunned
recently'to taste a 20-year-old
Koonunga Hills cabernet that
was still alive.
This wine isn't the only
value wine in the local mar-
ket. In fact, we stopped at sev-
eral wine shops one recent
day to find out what else wine
enthusiasts were buying. Our
only demand of the sales staff
was that the wine had lots of
fruit, ready for immediate
consumption and under $15.

match for seafood.
Morgante Nero d'Avola

and it shows off black cherry

with a dash of white pepper
and subtle oak. The grapes are
grown in high altitudes on
difficult terrain.
Cycles Gladiator Syrah
2005 ($11). Using grapes from
California's Central Coast, this
wine exudes luscious dark
berry fruit. Easy to drink,
medium body and good fin-
ish. The label is a mythologi-
cal image of a winged bicycle.
Castano Monsatrell 2005
($10). We made this a party
wine several times this year.
From Spain, it has a burst of
dark berry fruit and a medium
body to serve you proud as a
sipper or with grilled beef,
pasta and simple fare.
Menage a Trois California
White Table Wine 2005
($12). A terrific blend of
chardonnay, moscato and
chenin blanc, with the mosca-
to dominating the nose with
floral notes that really invite
you to taste this wine. A terrif-
ic beverage wine that has
peach and melon flavors that
can stand on it's own or
accompany light fare.

Things to know when grooming your pets

Proper grooming is an
important part of pet care. It not
only makes a companion ani-
mal look better, but contributes
to his or her physiological and
psychological health. Many
other tips and facts about your
pet can be found at in
www.caws.org. e
Brush your pet thoroughly
every day. This helps keep his or her
hair in good condition by removing
dirt, spreading the natural oils
throughout the coat, preventingtan-
gles from forming and keeping the
skin dean and free from imitation.
It is best to start brushing your pet
at an early age, but do not despair if
he or she is an older animal. It is pos-
sible to train one to enjoy grooming.
Proceed slowly, and be sure to use
treats and plenty of praise to make
the experience fun!
Trim your pets nails about once
per month. Youll need a clipper
designed specifically for the kind of
companion animal you have. Either
a scissor- or guillotine-style clipper
can be used. You should also pur-
chase a small bottle of blood-dotting
Howto Cut Your Pefs Nails
1. Have your companion animal
sit beside you. Then place one of his
or her paws in your hand and gently
pull it forward. If your pet dislikes
being handled this way, slowly
accustom him or her to it by offering
treats and praise.
2. Gradually shorten one nail. Be
sure to stop before you reach the
quick, which is the part of the nail
that contains nerves and blood ves-
selsJfyou cannotseethe quick lear--
ly stop cutting just behind thetpoit-
at which the nail begins to curve
3. Ifyou cut into the quick do not
panic Putsome dotting powder on
a moist cotton swab and press it
firmny against thenail for several sec-
4. Repeat the process until all of
your'companion animal's nails have
been trimmed.

Small changes can make a big difference

W tch any home
improvement show
and you'll see dramat-
ic changes to the homes being
worked on. By adding bold
color, coordinated design and
new fabrics and furnishings, we
see a room change and morph
into something completely dif-
On Decorating Cents, a pro-
gram on HGTV, the second half
of the show often features a re-
design. These homes undergo a
change in a room merely by
rearranging and making simple
design changes. What's equally
fascinating to me is how the
rooms with the simple design
changes and simple efforts -
can be just as dramatic.and
boldly different as the ones
with the major design
Because we're moving into
the holiday season, design
changes that can bring big
results quickly are the goal.
You want to freshen up your
home for company and the
upcoming holidays, but you
don't have the time and you
need to reserve your energy -
for the cleaning, shopping, dec-
orating and cooking ahead.
I recently shared with you a
quick change that I made to
my dining room (adding crys-
tals to my chandelier) and
what a difference that made.
This week, I'm sharing some
more of the projects around
my home that took two hours
or less and that made a big dif-
ference. I hope you enjoy
Outdoor living
Upstairs off the family room,
we have a veranda that over-
looks the pool. In the summer,
the veranda is shady and out of
reach of mosquitoes and in the


winter, the veranda is a perfect
spot for a blanket and a book.
My veranda was a mishmash
of uncoordinated furnishings
and looked unfinished. In a
weekend, I put on two coats of
stain on the floor that only
took me an hour. I refinished
our double chaise lounge with
the same stain to coordinate
the wood colors.
The next step was to sew a
new cover and coordinating
pillow in all-weather fabric for
the chaise and hang some coor-
dinating curtains. For less than
$200 and a little time, I had a
new, good-looking outdoor
Lights, camera, action
The next project was to
revamp some of the lighting in
our home. At our stairway, we
had some inexpensive sconces
that filled a quick lighting void
when we built the house. But,
they weren't very attractive.
For $60 I installed three new
outdoor fixtures that coordinat-
ed with the wrought-iron in
.my home in less than an hour.
The look is fresh and is more
coordinated with the style of

our home.
Mirror, mirror
Our upstairs bathrooms had
mirrors with no trim. Now was
the time to create some new
mirror frames. I looked at some
of the mirror trim.kits available
at home centers, but they
looked dinky and cheap. I
wanted something substantial.
Larger, more custom-looking
mirror kits could be found on
the Web, but they added up to
about $600 for our three mir-
rors. I wanted a big price look
for the best price possible.
A trip to the hardware store
tumed up decorative moulding
with a flat back that worked
perfectly. Next was the powder
bathroom. I was never really
crazy about the silver mirror in
this bathroom, so I painted it
and stained the light fixtures
for a bronze look. They turned
out terrific. Would you ever
imagine you could change the
look of a lighting fixture?
Project details
Look around your home for
opportunities to improve,
upgrade, repaint or revamp.
Even simple changes can make
a big difference in the look of
your home and your home's
aesthetic appeal.
For complete project details
of the work around my house,
including instructions on how
to do it yourself, go to

Who says that you have to use indoor light fixtures indoors? Why not try an outdoor fixture
instead? Replacing contemporary sconces with a coordinated outdoor fixture looked much better
than keeping an indoor fixture here that didn't match the style of the house.

SUPER SOUP I always add a little
bit of the turkey drippings from my'
Thanksgiving turkey gravy to the
next day's turkey soup. It really adds a
lot of flavor. Regina K.

THE NAME GAME I keep track of
the names of people's relatives very

names of spouses, children, parents,
aunts, uncles.(even pets), etc., under
the main name. This way, when I
need this information, it's right at my
fingertips. Nydia G.
