"I'm not really sure what exact-

that the "impact on the delivery of

Ruis declined to say if the

A previous analysis of stroke

Southern California in Los
To determine if this was a new
phenomenon and to explore the
potential contributions of vascular
risk factors to stroke prevalence
rates, researchers arnalyzedldata
from the National Health and
Nutrition Surveys 1988-94
(NHANES Ill) and 1999-4. They

bad cholesterol), and blood pres-
"We did not find significant dif-
ferences in presence of conven-
tional cardiovascular risk factors,
such as blood pressure, total cho-

two groups," said Towfighi, lead
author of the study.
Instead, women in the more
recent survey were more likely to
be using medications to control
blood pressure and cholesterol.-.
In fact, 14.8 percent reported
using medications to lower blood
pressure, compared to 8.9 per-
cent in the earlier survey.
"Women in NHANES 1999-4
were significantly more obese
than women a decade prior, with
an average BMI of 28.67 kg/m2
versus 27.11 kg/m2 the decade
prior," Towfighi said. BMI of 25.0

NHANES 1999-4 had an average
waist circumference of nearly 4

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners voted unanimously
Tuesday to designate Egans Creek
Greenway a "stand-alone basin"
within the Northeast District of the
St. Johns River Water Management
The designation would prevent
the basin from being developed
because it -cannot be "traded"
through mitigation for wetlands in
another part of the district.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
noted that, with the new designa-
tion, Egans Creek would be its own
mitigation basin, and "not looked at
as a regional basin."
'There will be no cross mitiga-
tion if it's a stand-alone basin," she
The part of the Greenway
between Atlantic Avenue and
Jasmine Street was restored in
2003 from a freshwater wetlands to
a saltwater wetlands as part of a
mitigation project for highway con-
struction in Duval County.
The city is also considering pur-
chase of a 2.76-acre parcel on
tem. Leon Perpall, owner of the
parcel, has been in the process of
developing the land for a hotel site.
Perpall has already received
permits from the St. Johns River
Water Management District and
the Army Corps of Engineers, and
is going before the city Board of
Adjustment in March for a vari-
ance hearing to fill in the wetlands.
Perpall has expressed interest
in selling the property to the city,
but is asking'more than $560,000 to
cover costs he has spent develop-
ing the land.
Bach said that the city has had
(Perpall) wants for the property.
But, she said, "Perpall is not
going to accept any less than he
has spent on the property."
Bach also explained that if the
Board of Adjustment denies
Perpall's claim for a variance, the
city could "force a negotiation
between the city and the property
owner." Perpall also could take the
city to court to reverse the Board
of Adjustment's action.
Perpall was not at the meeting,
and no action was taken by city

Here's a vision for Hilliard:
more services, no sprawl
Hilliard residents have no desire to see urban
sprawl spoil their country living.
More than 60 people participated in a public forum
Tuesday evening at Hilliard Middle-Senior High School,
giving their input on matters county planners should
consider when designing the future outlay for the West
The forum was the second of eight public meetings
being held this spring as part of a Nassau County
"County commissioners have put together a team
to help develop a 'Nassau County Vision 2032' plan,
what Nassau County will look like in 25 years," said
Dennis Yecke of MGT of America, Inc., a Tallahassee
consultant firm. That team has met on numerous occa-
sions throughout the fall, but a meeting Monday night
in Yulee was the first in which the public had a chance
to give input.
During the second meeting, held Tuesday, resi-
dents applied "blue dot" adhesive labels to comment
sheets posted at 11 tables. Participants selected three
issues and responded in writing about their thoughts
on various topics such as education and schools, pub-
lic safety, social services and growth management.
Residents also listed what they liked, what they did not'
like and what they would change in Hilliard.
Written responses under the education and schools
heading suggested that planners "modernize schools,"
provide "more books" and "separate the middle school
from the high school," among others.
Some respondents also verbalized their vision for the
"I would like to see, as I wrote on my comment, the
class sizes decrease, the teachers paid better," said
Sherrie Hansen, a Hilliard resident and mother of two,
who said the forum was necessary to get input. "I have
spoken with a number of teachers and what I hear in
comments is that they are just not paid enough to be

Other issues residents were concerned about had
to do with road conditions and the lack of gas stations.
Another written comment from an unidentified
"Evergreen/Sandhill resident from CR 108" read, "We
have no gas stations ... bad for people who live in this
A list highlighting public safety concerns included
"too many trains stopping or slowing (fire) rescue."
Another comment on the same list requested "more
manpower." Most participants have no desire to see
their rural life altered to a large degree, but would
like some conveniences without the urban sprawl, as
it is in Yulee.
'They let it happen. The county commission
responded to the developers and to their needs," said
His wife, Barbara Libby, expressed her concerns too.
"I like the peace and quiet. I do not like the roads
that I have to travel on to get where I need to go. I don't
believe we get the quality of roads that they get on the
East Side," she said. She added that all county offices
should be in a central location., as it is in St. Johns
A former Fernandina Beach resident wants devel-
opers to respect the environment in their plans.
"Well, one of the things I'd like to see is to maintain
the rural nature of West Nassau County," said Ray
Weinaug, who owns property west of Hilliard. "Don't
get it concentrated like it is in East Nassau County."

I thought it was just me, but my suspicions and
worries were confirmed on NBC's Today show
when a survey showed that Americans are
Well, dumber is a pretty harsh word, and
although it could apply to some, I prefer the word
ignorant. Ignorant has a mean connotation and I
don't want to sound mean, so by definition
(Webster's New World Dictionary) I mean, "lacking
knowledge or experience; caused by or showing
lack of knowledge; unaware."
A while back I saw a survey that showed that 95
percent of Americans knew who was the president
(the 5 percent could account for mental infirmity,
age, other acceptable reasons, etc.), but the fright-
ening numbers come after that. Only 75 percent of
Americans knew who the vice president was, 25 per-
cent knew who the secretary of state was; the same
number knew who both of their U.S. senators were.
Most people (at least a majority) knew who their
governor was, but almost no one knew who the lieu-
tenant governor was. OK, count me in; I had to look
it up. Guess who is the lieutenant governor of
Florida? Jeff Kottkamp. Amazing.
But what is really scary is that one out of four
college students couldn't show you where to find
Iraq on a map. A considerable number of Americans
think that people from New Mexico need a green

people that don't know that you can drive to Alaska

Without going into too much of a rehash, how can
people, especially people with doctorates, call evolu-
tion "not a fact." Regardless of one's religious lean-
ings, facts are facts. How something like evolution
occurred may fall into the realm of religion, but the
fact itself remains. It would be like saying man
never went to the moon, because God didn't create
man to fly. We may marvel at the possible miracle of
flight, but it doesn't justify saying that Apollo wasn't
the way it happened. Divine intervention may have
happened, but the facts remain on,how.it happened.
Anyway, this is not meant to be abotiliDarwint or
creationism. That was just an example of my con-
cern about ignorance (as defined earlier).
It seems that today Americans don't care much
about learning. I say that generally. Of course there
are many who do want to learn. But when I hear
people say they don't listen to public radio because
it's left wing, I am shocked. I am equally puzzled
when people are amazed that I listen to Fox News. I
am ignorant about many things (and most right-
wingers will say I am ignorant about everything),
and I feel compelled and embarrassed when I find
myself misinformed or uninformed.
In writing this piece, I went to the dictionary
twice to make sure I was using the right word. On
the way, I was sidetracked by several words that I
didn't know. It is fun to peruse the dictionary, some-
times it is distracting how much I need to learn as I
search for the word I need.
In the global economy and world village of today,
knowledge is ever so important, and ignorance is a
weight dragging us down. We better do something
now, individually and as a nation, or else America
will fall behind the emerging countries in Asia and
Eastern Europe, and our ignorance will not be bliss.
It starts with education, inside and outside of
school. We will be a better community (big and
small) when bumper stickers like "my child beat up
your honor student" are an embarrassment as
opposed to a point of pride.
Hopefully I don't get beaten up for saying that.

comments you reproduce do not mislead your readers.
It does not appear you did so in writing the article
titled "Meet wind codes, save on insurance," Feb. 13.
The gist of your article was essentially correct;
there is, for example, a lot of money to be saved by mit-
igating, and homeowners should get their homes
inspected and shop for the best price and coverage.
However your only source said "insurance companies
are not going to volunteer information because the
more people that know about it (mitigation discounts)
cuts into their profits." He then referred to the infor-
mation concerning mitigation as the "fine print" usually
attached to the renewal information that is "not easily
First, mitigation inspections tell an insurer not only
what discounts to give but often whether they want to
insure the home. I'm sure you understand that it would-
n't be "profitable" to insure only homes that are more
likely to suffer greater damage. To the contrary, insur-
ing homes that are less likely to stiffer losses is more
profitable, which is why carriers want to offer dis-
counts that reduce premiums- that way they can com-
pete with other carriers who also want to write the
better protected homes.
He should also consider that in your area a large
majority of homes, particularly those nearest the beach,
are insured in Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the
state insurer of last resort, not with standard market
companies. Citizens, which is probably the largest

state of Florida. The form is required by law and
designed and approved by the Office of Insurance

or was put together after months of workshops and
meetings and final approval by Florida's insurance
regulator. These forms list and describe every miti-
gation discount factor available, the percentage dis-
count that could be applied, what to do to get the
work done and receive the discount and whether or not
the policyholders' current policy reflects that particular

issued in Florida.
While I'm sure he meant well, as did you, his com-

standing of the law and the insurance mechanism gen-
erally. We would appreciate your clarification of these
facts in a future article.

'Personal agendas, bloated egos' thwart reform
Nassau County Animal Control has been a
sinking ship without a captain for quite
some time. With the possibility of the sher-
iff taking over the responsibility of man-
ning the ship, it has suddenly become of utmost
importance to our county commissioners. Why this
level of concern has not always been prevalent can
$e summed up in a few words said to me by
Commission Chair Marianne Marshall, "Honey,
they (the county commissioners) don't care."
This was her response when I wanted to provide
ier with documents to share with her fellow com-
(nissioners that would provide insight into how ani-
(nal control is managed in other parts of the United
States. The commissioners are quick to jump back
Onto the ship since the new captain is so probable.
Why? Because the sheriff will be removing from
Jhem that giant thorn that Animal Control has
become; it will allow them to completely wash their
hands of it, and the less responsibility they have the
Wetter they feel.
" It is interesting how the commissioners have
handled the improprieties of Brenda Rothwell.
According to recent newspaper reports, the records

enforcement Administration been invited to review

an she be trusted to handle the affairs of Code
enforcement if she cannot maintain governmental
documents to dispense euthanization drugs? It all
smells like rotten fish to me and obviously the com-
issioners have grown immune to the stench to
illow her to remain in a supervisory capacity.
I For those of you who don't know, there was an
attempt to form a "Pet Alliance" consisting of all of
the rescue groups in Nassau County so that collec-
tively they could work toward a common goal the

meeting agenda included a discussion topic as to
whether or not they should be included in this "Pet
Alliance." What good is an alliance if everyone can't
After this "Pet Alliance" meeting, a meeting was
held with the sheriff and rescue groups to discuss
the possibility of his office taking over Animal
Control. Again, notably absent were Nassau
Humane Society and Nassau County Animal
Control. They were again not asked to attend. How
can a group of people who claim to have the best
interests in mind for the animals of this county not
include an organization that has performed the
services of animal control previously nor the agency
that is under discussion?
The answers are personal agendas, bloated egos
and a dislike for the people who are in charge of
those entities. I was in attendance at the first meet-
ing held by the sheriff and was greatly disheartened
when I left.
Since (Animal Control Interim Director) Rhett
Holden-Dodge wasn't in attendance, a few people
decided it would be OK to express their dislike for
him. One of those people was Commissioner
Marshall, who said, "I knew I'd made a mistake
when I agreed to hiring him (Mr. Holden-Dodge)."
Instead of focusing on the problems with the shel-
ter, how to remedy them promptly, how to assist Mr.
Holden-Dodge in his quest to improve the situation,
Commissioner Marshall instead took the liberty of
saying she knew she'd made a mistake agreeing to
bring him back on board.
As I expressed at the county commissioner's
meeting on Oct. 31 before being rudely told to sit
down and shut up by Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham, I felt that Mr. Holden-Dodge's previ-
ous tenure at the shelter had mediocre results at
best. Why bring back a person that didn't do the
best of jobs when he was in command before? Mr.
Holden-Dodge offered the commissioners a deal
they couldn't refuse $1,000 a month as acting
At the meeting with the sheriff after hearing all
of the negative comments about him, I made the
statement that I thought it would benefit the animals
best if we could put the past behind us and lend a
helping hand to him to get Animal Control back on
track. Obviously I am the only person who felt that
The reason the commissioners clung to the offer
for $1,000 a month is because they knew they would
not find another person to accept the job for that
amount. He provided them with a reprieve from the
barrage of questions the public had. He was the
quick fix they were looking for. While I still do not
agree with all of his tactics, I laud Mr. Holden-
Dodge's efforts as he does the thankless job of
being the director because he is there for the right
reasons the animals.
One of the newest rescue groups in the county,
RAIN, appears to have monopolized the sheriff's
attention with regard to how the shelter should be
run. He has had subsequent meetings with people
involved with RAIN, yet, to my knowledge, he has
not asked for input from any other rescue group
since the initial meeting, nor has he asked any per-
son employed by Animal Control what they feel
would benefit the shelter most. We can all sit back
and say what we think is best, but how about asking
Patsy Bryant, who has been at the shelter a number
of years, what she thinks? I believe she would pro-
vide valuable "inside" information on what areas are
the biggest problems.
The sheriff's proposal to take over Animal
Control is correct in one thing. Animal Control in
the county is disgustingly underfunded. However, I
question his motives with the redundant positions
he has proposed to staff the shelter. Do you really
need a shelter manager when you have a shelter
director? Do you really need an office manager
when you only have two receptionists? Why not uti-
lize that funding to provide spaying and neutering
for people who have come to Animal Control as a
last resort? The more animals that are altered, the
fewer there will be in the shelter.
I ask that everyone take the opportunity to visit
the shelter. Through the hard work of countless vol-
unteers and shelter staff, the animals are better off
now than they have been in some time. Come and
see the sad conditions they have to live in. By doing
so, you will have done one thing that the commis-
sioners have not- visited the facility that has been
such a dilemma to them. Out of sight and out of
mind is their motto and they are suddenly all too
ready to pull money out of their magic hat to have
the sheriff take it all away due to the amount of pub-
lic scrutiny they are under.

My father was a

and he loved every minute of it. I asked him why
he loved it so much. He replied, "There's nothing
like hearing someone say thank you for saving
their life and being able to say 'you're welcome."'

feels when we are truly grateful for His sacrifice.

Q Would you be able to iden-
.tify a plant growing in my
yard? I never see any flowers. It
is evergreen but I cannot find
any information about it. DG
A Recently, I have received
numerous clippings of this
sh'rub into the office. With so
many people interested in the
plant I felt compelled to put the
answer in the newspaper. I sus-
pect the small, shiny white fruit
is what piqued your interest.
One of the Master Gardener vol-
unteers recognized it as the
Night Blooming Jessamine,
It produces flowers but they
are small and open up at night,
which may be one of the rea-
sons you have not noticed them.
The name is derived from the
flowers producing a strong,
sweet scent at night that appar-
ently attracts a number of

Q have dwarf oleander and
Just noticed that the
leaves are missing. When I
looked closer I saw orange
caterpillars with black bristles.
What is eating my plant? JD
A Your plant is being eaten
:eby the oleander caterpillar.
Normally the cooler tempera-
tures we've had this winter
would stop or slow the caterpil-
lars' feeding, but I have not seen
this to be true.
I suspect shrubs planted
near the house or in an alcove
may be in a warmer, more pro-
tected area that would allow
the insect a perfect environment
to continue growing and feed-
ing. Oleander caterpillars have
been found on plants in the
UF/IFAS Nassau County
Demonstration garden as well as
my own home so you are not
Despite their threatening
appearance they are quite harm-
less to humans so hand removal
works very easily as many are
too large for the chemical appli-
cation of pesticides to be worth-
However, if they are small
(otte inch or less) you might try
an application of Bacillus
thuringiensis (Bt), which is a
naturally occurring bacterial dis-
ease used on insects. Bt insecti-
cides are most commonly used
against some leaf and needle
feeding caterpillars. Recently,
strains have been produced that
affect certain fly larvae, such as
mosquitoes, and larvae of leaf
beetles. Bt is considered safe to
people, pets and wildlife. Be
careful to avoid using this chem-
ical'around butterfly larvae as
they will be destroyed along
with the pests.
In addition, this chemical is
temperature sensitive so store it
in a dark, cool environment.
High heat destroys the bacteria
and renders it useless. As
always, follow the directions on
the label for best management
Q What is this small plant I
.found in my yard? BC
A What a nice surprise to
Find such a beautiful plant
in your yard. I suspect this flow-
ering plant is a terrestrial orchid
in the genus Corallorhiza. It is
so tiny that most people would
overlook it or think it a weed. I
am proud of you for noticing it at

that keeps us going strong. That
love was put together by his
daughters with slides about

Inspirational words came from

Softball and baseball season is in full swing for the Fernandina Beach High School Pirates. Katie McElhaugh,-left, started for

After losing the season opener to Baker
County Feb. 14, the Pirates have rallied to win
their last two games and are 2-1 on the season.
S. Welet a two-*, ad slip away in.our opn- ir
er at Baker County," said K.-n Roland,
Fernandina Beach High School head baseball
coach. "We carried a 2-0 lead into the seventh
inning, only to let Baker back into the game.
We failed to execute defensively and that con-
tributed to our late collapse.
"We faced an outstanding pitcher (senior
right-hander Jerrell Rodgers) and our young
hitters did a good job working the count."
Baker scored three unearned runs in the
seventh to win 3-2.
The Pirates collected six hits with Justin
Crews and Trent Luman accounting for two
each. Robert Martin and Hunter Daniel had
one apiece. Davis and Daniel knocked in the
. Three pitchers shared time on the mound.
Justin Day started and struck out three, walked
four and gave up just two hits. Andy Bowles
gave up two runs on one hit and Jarrod Carlton
allowed one run on one hit.
The Pirates got their first win of the season
Feb. 15 at home. They defeated Terry Parker
"Again we faced a pitcher with good veloc-
ity and movement and we did a good job put-
ting the ball in play," Roland said.
The Pirates had nine hits on the night.
"We just were not sharp on the mound and
walks put Terry Parker in position to make
the game close," Roland said. "Justin Day's
single in the seventh scored Harrison Yonn
with the game winner."
Justin Day had two hits and Womble, Crews,
Jeff Day, Carlton, Martin and Luman had one
hit each. Justin Day and Carlton had two RBIs
apiece and Martin and Luman each knocked in
Tyler Womble was the winning pitcher. iHe
gave up two runs on one hit and walked three.
Harrison Yonn started, giving up three runs,
one unearned, on two hits, walking five and
striking out three. Yonn gave way to Bradley
Manning, who allowed a run, walked two and
struck out one batter.
On Monday, FBHS shut out Lee 16-0.
"We pounded out 13 hits in the five-inning
game," Roland said. "Pitching was sharper.
Our young pitchers are working hard to stay
in advantage counts."
Myles Rabant was the winning pitcher. He
gave up just one hit and no runs, walked five
and struck out three. Cameron Rose pitched
the final inning, giving up no runs or hits and
striking out two.

RBIs. Jeff Day and Justin Day had two hits
apiece and both had a double in the game. Jeff
Day had one RBI and Justin Day knocked in
four runs. Daniel, Crews, Yonn and Martin
each had a hit. Crews tripled.
"With the graduation of 11 seniors, our
team is young and inexperienced," Roland said.
"We have three returning pitchers with right-
handers Justin Day and Jarrod Carlton along
with left-hander Tyler Womble. Justin Crews
returns at shortstop. Senior second baseman

FA fish haven a good bet for sea bass action this weekend
Dan McCranie is all smiles after catching this fat sea bass. Sea bass action should be excellent
this weekend offshore.
O offshore fishing for sea bass should be
excellent this weekend. A gotd place to
begin your drift fishing day on the water
is FA fish haven. Fishermen will find lots
of hard bottom and rock ledges, which are both
excellent habitats for good eating sea bass.
Bring along a five-pound frozen block of local
squid for bait. Most local tackle shops have five
pounds of frozen local squid on hand, which will
also catch a wide variety of bot-
i tom feeders. Expect to catch
lots of red snapper this week-
IJ end at FA fish haven along with
a few keeper gag grouper.
Once you have boated a few
sea bass, cut the smaller bass
into chunks for cut bait and fish
a chunk of cut bait on the top
hook and fresh squid on the
bottom hook of your double
Terry Lacoss rig.

Market; both are located within

I went bass fishing last weekend in a small lake
and did not see any bedding activity for largemouth
bass. In fact, the fishing action was quite slow while

seven bass weighing to three pounds.

ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB
For the News-Leader
I recently wrote about Australia's
problems with a glut of shiraz, corpo-
rate takeovers and a decline in quality.
But there are always exceptions to the
rule and a recent arrival here is one of
Forefathers shiraz is produced
from a 15-acre vineyard in McLaren
Vale, South Australia. This shiraz is a
single vineyard wine produced by
Goldschmidt Vineyards. The 2003 vin-
rated a "91" gr
by The Wine WINE &
ranked it fp NERS
wide in its 'Top 100 Wines" in 2005.
That year it also won a gold medal in
the West Coast Wine Competition and
the Indy International Wine
And it's available for $13 at Amelia
Liquors (next to Harris Teeter). The
distributor says it is also available
through Costco Warehouse.
Goldschmidt is one of the smaller
Australian vintners that still strive for
quality, not corporate profits.
Structure, intensity and complexity,
the three characteristics of quality
wines, are their objectives, Which they
do achieve in this fine example of how
shiraz should taste. The Forefathers
shiraz is made using traditional
Australian winemaking techniques,
with short time on skins and fermen-
tation in barrel After ferment is com-
pleted the wine is barrel racked and
left in French oak for 12 months. The
wine remains unfiltered and unfined,
preserving as much of the natural fla-
vors as possible.

The Darjeeling Limited
(Comedy. R. 91m.. 2007)
Three brothers have a reunion
in India and take a strange and
eccentric train journey in search
of themselves, enlightenment,
their mother, and certain obscure
over-the-counter remedies guar-
anteed to cure sobriety. Owen
Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason
Schwartzman star in a laid-back
human comedy that meanders so
persuasively, it gets us meander-
ing right along. With Amara Karan
as a seductive train stewardess
and Wally Wolodarsky as
Wilson's employee, who issues
laminated daily schedules from
his office in the baggage car.
Directed by Wes Anderion
("Rushmore," "The Royal
Tenenbaums"). Rating: *** --
30 Days of Night
(Horror. R. 113m.. 2007)
Barrow, Alaska, said to be the
northernmost town in America,
undergoes 30 days without sun
every winter, which makes it an
ideal holiday haven for vampires.
The townsfolk, led by Josh
Hartnett and Melissa George, do
battle against ravenous vampire
hordes led by Danny Huston, in a
film that is well-directed and -
acted. Rating: **-
(Fantasy. PG-13.114 m.. 2007)
A titanic epic battle between
the monster Grendel and the
hero Beowulf, shown by director
Robert Zemeckis with rip-roaring
gusto by using the same technol-
ogy as his "Polar Express," so
that animated characters look
almost real. With the voices (and
sometimes the appearances) of
Anthony Hopkins, Angelina Jolie,
John Malkovich, Robin Wright

Death ata Funeral
(Comedy. R. 90 m.. 2007)
British comedy involving
unplanned entrances and exits,
misbehavior of corpses and just
plain wacky eccentricity. Directed
by Frank Oz, it finds its laughs in
the peculiar human trait of being
most tempted to laugh when
we're absolutely not supposed to.
With Matthew Macfadyen, Keeley
Hawes, Ewen Bremner, Jane
Asher, Rupert Graves and, last
but not least, Peter Dinklage.
(Drama. R. 114 m.. 2007)

ful, as much a series of striking
images as a linear story. Starring
Stellan Skarsgard, Javier
Bardem, Natalie Portman, Jose
Luis Gomez and Randy Quaid.
Filled with blood, sex and fears.
(Romantic drama. R. 110 m.. 2007)
A languid, too languid, story of
romantic regrets, mostly ours,
because romance is expected to
carry the film without explaining it.
It is told as a mournful flashback,
circa 1860, narrated by a man
(Michael Pitt) who has been in
love with two women, one French
(Kiera Knightley), one in far-off
Japan (Sei Ashina), where he
goes to buy silkworms. Languid,
slow, underwhelming. Rating: **
(Drama. R. 119 m.. 2007)
George Clooney plays a slick,
efficient but weary fixer for a big
law firm, Sydney Pollack ;s the
head of the firm, Tom, Wilkinson is
the partner who has just stripped
naked during a deposition hear-
ing in Milwaukee, and Tilda
Swinton represents the corporate
client who is horrified to find such
a man leading their defense. A
near-perfect example of the
legal/business thriller. Written and
directed by Tony Gilroy, who
wrote all the "Bourne" picture.

Chad McKnight in "The Signal,"a movie that explores the
common ground between visceral horror and sketch comedy,
.and finds plenty of it.

Be Kind Rewind
(Comedy. PG-13. 101minutes)
After every tape in a VHS
rental store is inadvertently
erased, Jack Black and Mos Def
don't want the store owner
(Danny Glover) to find out. So
they set to work to "re-enact" the
films in low-tech home movies. I
felt positive and genial while
watching it, but I didn't break out
in iparoxysms of laughter. Written
and directed by the usually more
brilliant Michel Gondry.
Rating: ** X
(Comedy. r. 97minutes)
Anton Yelchin is appealingly
goofy in this teen comedy about
a kid's yearning for popularity
won by illegally selling prescrip-
tion drugs to his fellow students.
Like many of John Hughes' high
AT THE MOVIES
school movies it presents a fan-
tasy about kids from different
social circles nerds, jocks,
punks, cheerleaders, drama
clubbers coming together to
fight adult authoritarianism. Co-
starring Hope Davis, Kat
Dennings and Robert Downey
Jr., dominating eve'scd6 e'-'"

(Romantic comedy. PG-13.
As the lead in director Adam
Brooks' bittersweet romantic
comedy, Ryan Reynolds finally
steps into a charming, vulnerable
character that perfectly fits his
comedic talents. He plays Will
Hayes, a thirty-something adver-
tising whiz who agrees to tell his
10-year-old daughter, Maya
(Abigail Breslin), about the
women he dated before her
mom, but he changes the
names and Maya must guess
which one is her mother. With

(Horror. R. 95 minutes)
Film students making a horror
movie for a school project turn
into guerrilla documentarians
with video shaky-cams when the
undead return to stalk the Earth.
This is the fifth of George A.
Romero's "Living Dead" movies,
and once again he mixes horror
and socio-political satire -this
time in the form of a website doc
about post-9/11 paranoia and
zombies who bite in the night.
Rating: A** (Jim Emerson)

Hayd.n Christer6sen can
"u' iua.mp anywhere anytime.
Samuel L. Jackson wants to kill
him. In Giza and New York and
London and Paris and Rome
and Tokyo and Ann Arbor.
There are no rules. There is no
plot. A series of random events
occur. Sometimes they're so silly
they make you laugh. Most of
the time you'd rather be any-
where else. Rating: '2. (Jim

WINE Continued from 1B
McLaren Vale fruit characters for shiraz are
spicy and rich. There are notes of plum, black pep-
per and a soft note of vanilla. The barrel ferment
technique makes the wine fruit-forward, with sweet,
ripe tannins. It has a long finish and silky mouth,
feel This wine's best years are from two years of age
to seven, which means the 2003 vintage is at its
prime right now.
Another find at Amelia Liquors is a South African
sauvignon blanc from the famous Vergelegen estate.
This 2004 bottling is truly a different SB, and a
standout. It has a nose that jumps out of the glass -
gooseberries, fig, elderflower, some ripe fruits, cut
grass and green pepper. The wine is full, intensely
flavored and very long on aftertaste.
The grapes are selected from Vergelegen's own
vineyards in Somerset West, plus from selected vine-
yards on the West Coast near the town of
Koekenaap, a blend of 90 percent sauvignon blanc,
10 percent semillon. The grapes are skinned quickly
(the vintner contends skin contact leads to coarse
wines), the'juice settled for 72 hours at low tempera-
tures before inoculation with the desired yeast strain
for sauvignon grapes. Another non-traditional tech-
niquie used for this wine is fermentation at higher
temperatures than normal. This leads to fuller, big-
ger and more intensely flavored wine, the vintner
says, and the actual drinking experience proves
Wine Enthusiast Magazine named the Vergelegen
Estate the "New World Winery of the Year" in 2006.
The 9,000-acre estate, snug between the
Helderberg arid Hottentots Holland mountains some
30 miles from Cape Town, is ideal for viniculture as it
has a prolonged growing season that allows grapes
to develop a full flavor.
Now a historic landmark, Vergelegen (pro-
nounced Fair'-huleg-hen and meaning "situated far
away') has a history that goes back to the Dutch col-
onization of 1700. It is considered one of the environ-
mental jewels of South Africa. It was acquired by the
Anglo American Corporation, world renowned for
precious metals industries and De Beers Diamonds,
some 20 years ago. Anglo-American, unlike other
corporations, has kept hands off the winery,
although the estate has become a frequent meeting
place for world leaders. Vergelegen played a role in
the efforts to build anew South Africa. In 1991, soon
after Nelson Mandela's release from prison, the
homestead hosted the recently unbanned African
National Congress for a crucial executive meeting -
beginning a relationship with Mandela, who was to
become South Africa's president three years later.
Vergelegen's recent history includes the state
receptions for President Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II
and other European royalty, as well as many other
leaders from around the world.
You can buy this piece of South African history,
for a short time, at Amelia Liquors for $13.

Beck, a native Californian, has
spent her life in spiritual study,

Indians who were captured by the
U.S. Army at Fort Sill, Okla., in
1875 during the Plains Wars and
exiled to Fort Marion (Castillo de
San Marco) in St. Augustine,
where, under the direction of Lt.
Richard Henry Pratt, they were
made to adopt Western values,
appearance, behavior, language
of galaxies and space on NASA's"
Astronomy Picture of the Day"
site, her fascination with bio-
chemistry and the intricacies of
the human cell, trips to foreign
countries, dozens of monthly
design magazines, and walks on
