Lorelei developer makes refunds

A planned seven-story
oceanfront condominium
whose building permit was
issued lust before the
Jacksonville Beach height limit
was implemented has been
halted because of increased
construction costs.
The developer of the Lorelei,
a proposed art noveau-style
project planned at 138 9th Ave.
S., had taken deposits totaling
more than $2 million for 15 of
the 22, three-bedrooms units.
But a fiercely competitive
local niarket coupled with high
design prices prompted the
developer, Alan Dickinson, to
refund the deposits to his
potential buyers and revisit his
marketing plan for the 1,500 to
2,800-square-foot units.

"My goal is to try and move
forward with the project,"
Dickinson said Tuesday. "I
have no intent to change the
design. I am going to aggres-
sively pursue this."
With an estimated 400 resi-
dential condominium units
presently under construction
in Jacksonville Beach,
Dickinson said the develop-
ment boom "created more sup-
ply than the Jacksonville Beach
market has seen before.
"Thev are all coming on line
at the same time. [The develop-
ers] all rushed to build when
they didn't have to because
thev did not know how long
the permit would be good for,"
Dickinson said.
"They will all be finished
about the same time. Once
these condos are absorbed,
there will be no more in

Jacksonville Beach."
One of the oceanfront con-
dominiums to be built, the
seven-story Acquillus III at 807
1st St. N. on the site of the First
Street Grille restaurant, had
been halted by the 35-foot
height limit approved by
Jacksonville Beach voters.
The height limit went into
effect before Eagle
Development obtained a build-
ing permit for the Acquillus Ill,
and Lee Underwood with Eagle
Development asked Duval
County Circuit Court to allow
the development.
Circuit Judge Jean Johnson
ruled Oct. 27 that the develop-
er had vested rights to contin-
ue with his plans.
Dickinson said he is confi-
dent that he will benefit from
this roadblock because he pre-
dicts buyers will be willing to

spend more on a unit in his
high-end, luxury development
once the competition subsides.
"I might test the market
again in the spring to see if [the
public] are prepared to pay a
higher price point," he said,
noting that he might hold out
as long as 2007 to allow the
flurry of development to settle.
The extra time will also allow
the cost of building materials
such as glass, sheetrock and
glass to decrease in the wake of
the recent hurricanes while
allowing the value of the prop-
erty to appreciate.
"It will maintain value," he
said. "Especially with the lack
of inventory."
Dickinson said that in
October 2004, one of his units
sold for $468 per square foot

The Lorelei, an Art Deco-styled high rise community planned for
Jacksonville Beach, is still in the works, developer Alan
Dickinson said Tuesday.

Decorative lights

all that is needed

to finish 5 points

The majority of work on a $346,475
project to improve the five-points intersection
in Atlantic Beach was completed late last
And now all that is left to do is install
new decorative lighting poles, which the city
ordered last month. The order is expected to
take up to 12 weeks to arrive, City Manager Jim
Hanson said Tuesday.
The controversial project to improve
the aesthetics and functionality of the five-way
stop intersection of Seminole Road, Sherry Drive
and Plaza began in November.
The project includes the installation of
decorative crosswalks, resurfacing, landscaping.
minor drainage improvements, an area for pub-
lic art and a right turn road from Seminole Road
to Sherry Drive, according to plans. The inter-
section was also redesigned, moving the stop
signs closer together to improve driver visibility.
But the project drew the ire of some res-
idents, who said they thought that its cost was
too high. The cost of the project became an issue
in October's city election for mayor and two
City Commission seats. In the election, two city
commissioners up for reelection to the commis-
sion were defeated by newcomers.

Balmy Polar Plunge
Luke the 1-year-old Saluki is cared by his owner, Benji Serra of Jacksonville Beach, into the
ocean at Jacksonville Beach Sunday for the annual New Year's Day Polar Plunge. With the air

Armed robbery

suspect wanted

by AB police

Atlantic Beach police are looking for a male
suspect in a Dec. 30'armed kidnapping and
robbery of a 22-year-old Navy man.
The victim agreed to give the suspect a ride
in, his yehide around 2, a.m. at a Mhavoort
'Rad restaurant, according Atlantic Beach
Deputy Police Chief John Campbell.
The suspect pulled a gun on the sailor and
forced him to drive him to a nearby apart-
ment complex, where he took $150 cash from
the victim, Campbell said.
The victim then changed seats with the sus-
pect and drove to a lMaport Road credit
union, where he instructed the sailor to with-
draw money from an ATM.
Before the vehicle came to a stop, the vic-
tim grabbed the gun hand of the suspect and
began punching him in the face, causing the
vehicle to crash into a building.
The suspect exited the vehicle and fled,
.according to Campbell. The victim was not
injured in the incident. The suspect's weapon
was an "airsoft" BB gun, Campbell said.
Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic
male in the his 20s, approximately 5-feet 5-
inches tall and 150 pounds. He has a mus-
tache and a patch of hair under his lower lip
and has tattoos on his forearm.

Pier draws crowds, record fish during 2005

The biggest revenue stream at the
Jacksonville Beach fishing pier isn't
fishermen it's spectators.
But the fishermen who do use the
pier have plenty of fish tales to tell.
More than 175,000 people visited
the 1,300-toot-long pier in 2005,
according to pier manager Don
That number is impressive given
the fact that the $3.5-million, city-
owned structure was closed for busi-
ness on July 4 and during the three-
day Sea & Sky Spectacular in
"Those were two beautiful week-
ends, too," Streeter said on Monday,
an unseasonably warm and prof.
itable New Year's Day at the pier.
"With a business like this, so much
depends on the weather. Rainy days
and windy days make a difference."
Rain or shine, attendance at the
pier, which opened Dec. 30, 2004
averaged 18,000 people a morith
through May 2005, Streeter said.
An estimated 4,000 visited the 21.
toot-wide pier on opening day
Streeter said spectators and angler'
were "packed like sardines" from the
entrance ramp to the pier's T-shapec

A record 22,000 people visited the
pier during its first month of opera-
tions, with spectators outnumbering
Anglers 30 to 1.
S Streeter knew those whopping
attendance figures wouldn't last. But
what he didn't anticipate was the
abundance of catches at the pier, from
a 53-pound kingfish to 90-pound tar-
S More than 80 kingfish were caught
off the pier last year, which was twice
the amount ever landed at the old
SJacksonville Beach pier that was put
out of commission in 1999 by
Hurricane Floyd.
"One of the things that amazes me
is that probably 90 percent of the red-
fish caught were too large to keep,"
,said Streeter, who also manages
oceanfront piers in Dania Beach and
Juno Beach.
S "We also had a lot of nice flounder
Sin the 5- to S-pound range, and whit-
ing galore."
S On Monday, a father and son
,hauled up 40 whiting using a rod arid.
reels rented at the pier's tackle shop.
Streeter said 'it's nothing" for some
pier "regulars',to catch 100 whiting
n a day.
S Other species caught include drum,
: mackerel, sea trout, jack, cuda and
S triple tail.
"These are avid fishermen up here,"

said Streeter, a former Fort Lauderdale
banker who formed Dania Pier
Management in 1985.
"They love their fishing. As a rule,
we have people waiting to fish when
we open up at 6 a.m. And they don't
leave until the sun starts to set."
Because Streeter pays the state an
annual $500 salt-water licensing fee,
anglers who wish to fish from the pier
do not need individual salt-water
But the pier's attraction isn't just
the fishing.
For a $1 admission, visitors can
stroll the quarter-mile-long, wood-
decked landing, or eat lunch at one of
several picnic-style benches.
Restrooms and concessions are also
provided on the pier.
"There's a lot to see out here and
enjoy," said Streeter, who works most
weekends when he's not in Juno
Beach or Dania Beach.
"We had about a dozen shrimp
boats close enough to the pier where
you could watch them drop their
nets. I saw a big whale breach twice a
few weeks ago."
The city closed the pier for almost
five days during the annual air show
in November.
Streeter said the Blue Angels ground
crew set up communications equip-
'ment on the pier during the event to

monitor the jets as they flew practice
The pier was also closed for the
annual July 4 fireworks display.
Streeter said anglers have had "a
few mild encounters" with surfers
since the pier opened, but nothing
serious. He said there isn't a fishing

pier in existence that doesn't have
that problem.
One problem Streeter didn't have to
deal with was Hurricane Wilma,
which wreaked havoc on the Juno

OK'd an $11,580 change order
for the contractor to install
irrigation and approximately
$32,500 for the lighting.
Also, an unexpected compli-
cation in November required
additional work by the con-
tractor. Inadequate base mate-
rial was discovered under the
intersection's existing asphalt
and needed to be replaced, at
an additional cost of $10,000.
The decorative lighting'was
initially expected to be pur-
chased and installed by JEA at
a cost of $20,000. But city
commissioners wanted the
light poles to be fitted with
"Dark Skies" fixtures, which
limit the amount of light
directed toward the sky and
focus more illumination onto
the ground something JEA
said it could not do.
So the commissioners last
month approved purchasing
the poles and lighting from

ing regular inspections of the
property every 180 days.
"Once a permit is issued, it is

Jacksonville Beach senior plan-

The Lorelei's building permit
was issued one month before
the citywide 35-foot height
restriction was implemented in
November 2004.
Dickinson said he does not
have any plans to modify any
aspect of the project although
he concedes that the $1.9 mil-
lion in design costs could have-
contributed to his inability to
meet the bank's expectations.

Rhine River who lured sailors'

the new commission, which.
took office in November, can-

poor use of public funds.
The project is a scaled-back
version of a proposal by some
commissioners in 2003 to
install a roundabout at the
intersection. The roundabout
was proposed as a way to
improve the aesthetics and
safety of the intersection.
But when estimates for the.
roundabout exceeded
$500,000, commissioners
balked and later proposed a
simpler beatification project
for the intersection.
At that time, Police Chief
David Thompson told com-
missioners that traffic safety
was not a problem at the five-

The.Leader's Opinion

Plenty of

pier to go


An oceanfront fishing pier has been a continu-
al landmark at the Beaches dating to the turn of
the 20th century.
As many as three oceanfront fishing piers were
operational at the Beaches between 1937-43.
All three are long gone. Not even pilings
Hurricane Floyd took a big bite out of the area's
fourth fishing pier in 1999.
With the debut of the $3.5-million Jacksonville
Beach pier in December 2004, a new pier era has
been ushered in at the Beaches.
After only a year of existence, tens of thousands
of spectators have visited the' quarter-mile-long
span that rivals no other local pier in our history.
For a nominal fee ($1) visitors can stroll the
wood-decked promenade. Anglers who can't
afford a boat can elbow up to the rails for $4,
drop their double bottom rigs into the sea and,
with a little luck, haul up a fighting fish worth
mounting or one worth frying for dinner.
It didn't take the fish long to find the new pier,
either. Record catches of kingfish were taken last
year, along with' 90-pound tarpon.
Surfers have also migrated to the spot, which
has led to some unfortunate confrontations with
But we should all take pride in our impressive,
new ,pier because there is plenty of it to go

Trophies for

just showing,

up must stop

A bout trophies. You
know, the metal statues
given as awards for
everything from tee ball to
spelling bees.
SWh6nI was a child, the pos-
session of a trophy meant you
were the best in a field, a
member of the super colossal
championship team.
I don't remember getting
trophies for just showing up.
In fact, when I was about 12, I
won a state piano competition
and all I got was a paper cer-,
tificate. I don't know if this
country was still recovering
from the metal shortages of
WWII or what, but trophy
largesse was not an issue.
Since the time that my chil-
dren started participating in
organized sports, they have
gotten a trophy at the end of
every season, whether they
won any games or not, to be
put on the shelf.
Now for the first child,
when he was 4, the trophy
was a much bigger deal to his
parents. I think he had the
toddler's reaction equivalent
to "yeah, whatever."
But by the time children
Nos. 2 and 3 showed up, all
they wanted was a trophy like
their older brother. I think
they had me sign them up for
sports that they knew gave the
biggest ones.

The dilemma is that my

room. In fact, if I wanted to
display them in any manner
other than on the top of my
children's dressers, I'd have to
put them in the middle of the

would make mealtime a huge

Do research before joining a gym or health club

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers to
get some background informa-
tion on health clubs prior to
signing a contract.
Many people put losing
weight and getting into shape
at the top of their New Year's to-
do list. But unless they do some
research in advance, the only
thing they may lose is money.
State law provides some protec-
tions' for consumers, and they
should be aware of what those
The Florida Department of.
Agriculture and Consumer
Services administers the Health
Studio Law, which spells out the
rights and responsibilities of the
gyms and consumers. It also
provides some recourse against
health clubs that do not follow
the law. All health clubs are
required to register with the
Department's Division of
Consumer Services and many
must also post a bond that can
be used to repay members if the
facility goes out of business. In
2005, the Department collected
$67,000 in fines against health
clubs for various violations of
the Health Studios Law, includ-

ing registration problems and,
There are 1,720 health stu-
dios registered with' the
Department, an increase of 379
over last year; 149 clubs went
out of business over the. samine
time period.
"Joining a health club can be
a positive but costly endeavor,
and it's important that people
know as much as possible about
a particular facility before enter-
ing into a contract," Bronson
said. !'They need to know exact-
ly what they are getting for
their, money and what steps
they can take to seek redress if
something goes wrong."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a con-
tract for certain reasons incl~td-
ing: cancellation within thiee
days of signing a contract,
exclusive of holidays and week-
ends, but it must be done in
writing; if the facility moves
more than five miles away from
the original location and fails to
provide, within 30 days, a facil-
ity of equal quality, located
within five miles; if a person
becomes physically unable to
use most of the services for
which they contracted, until
the disability ends.

Bronson also recommends
consumers follow these tips
before sighing a contract:
'-Call the Department's
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-
800-435-7352) to make sure the
health studio is registered and
to check its complaint history.
-Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the
Department, as most that col-
lect fees in advance are required
to do.
-Prior to joining, ask about
the- club's cancellation policy
should you move or become
physically unable to use the
-Before signing up, visit the
club during the hours you
intend to use it to determine
whether it is overcrowded and
the equipment you plan to use
is available.
* -Find out if any of the serv-
ices offered require an addition-
al fee.
Bronson said it is important
to read proposed contracts thor-
oughly and make sure you get
all promises made by club per-
sonnel in writing. Ask ques-
tions to make sure you under-
stand the terms of your mem-

cover it was missing. Cookware,

Hokies rally to win Gator Bowl


A Hokies


seemed in

the Cards

S somehow it was right for
the Virginia Tech team
to overcome a first half
lead by the Louisville
Cardinals to win the Gator
Bowl classic Monday.
After all, the Hokies have
been to Alltel Stadium
enough to pay taxes here.
Coach Frank Beamer is an
old friend, a nice guy who
controls his temper and has
never been known to throw
a chair or a photographer or
a sun visor in the years we
have observed him.
Still, even though Beamer
should feel at home here,
that didn't help him over-
come a fierce onslaught by
the Red Birds, who scam-
pered off to a 14-0 lead
almost before the TV
announcers could get their
spotters in tow.
Trailing 17-10 at the break,
it looked like just another
bad day at Black Rock (as the
old movie went). Virginia
Tech has had woes here for
years, not to mention its
frustration at being thumped
by Florida State in
Jacksonville for the ACC
crown last month.
A day or so before the
Gator Bowl game, coach
Beamer said the Hokies were
always delighted to come to
Alltel. Why? They almost
never win here. But, of
course, he was just uttering
the obligatory nice things
about the Gator Bowl and
Beamer obviously never
worked as a coach under Jeff
Fisher, of the Tennessee
Titans, who-hates the
Jaguars. terrorists and cancer
Sin that order.
There were lots of dull
moments in Monday's game,
which finally saw the Hokies
pull out a 35-24 %ctory.
Tech quarterback Marcus
Vick gave a Louisville tackler
a cowardly stomp on the leg
for no good reason, and to /
add to the fun, ejections
were in order along with
plenty of penalties on both
The Cardinals plainly
came to play. Led by quarter-
back Hunter Cantwell, coach
Bobby Petrino's team domi-
nated the first and second
quarters, while the Hokies
were still rubbing their eyes
in disbelief.
Louisville proved worthy
of a first class bowl bid and
never let their fans, about
half of the 63,780
announced crowd, down
until the very end.
Cantwell took an ugly
beating. For a brief time we
thought we were seeing a re-
run of the Tennessee Titans i
all but destroying the
Jaguars' Mark Brunell.
The 22-point comeback by
the Hokies in the final quar-
ter saved Monday's game
from being another ho-hum-
For that we have coach
Beamer and his homecom-
ing to thank. Comebacks
didn't work for every team
The Georgia Bulldogs
staked the surprising West
Virginia team to a 28-0 lead
in the Sugar Bowl and almost
caught up at the end, only to
lose 38-35. Any team that
gives up 28 points in the first
half doesn't deserve to win.
And the Dawgs didn't.
Meanwhile, the Florida
Gators gave coach Urban
Meyer a great start onr his UF
career by beating Iowa, 31-
24, in spite of themselves.
But like the old saying goes,
"There's no such thing as an
ugly win or an 'ugly' rich

Hokies comeback in a 35-24
Gator Bowl victory Monday
over a game Louisville squad.
Running back Cedric Humes
ran for 113 yards and a TD as
the No. 12 Hokies topped the
15th-ranked Cardinals.
Virginia Tech's first trip to
the River City, for last month's
ACC championship game,
ended with a stunning loss to
Florida State. But the Hokies
managed, to overcome penal-
ties, mistakes and the ejection
of senior cornerback Jimmy
Williams (for bumping an offi-
cial) to stage the come-from-
behind victory.
"This is a much better feel-
ing than when we were here
.last time," said Hokies tight
end Jeff King. "We wanted to
go out on a better note than
what we showed when we
played Florida State. We had a
lot of our guys come in and
step up. That's what good
teams do to get back on the
winning track."
Louisville came out fired up
in building a 14-3 lead when
Mario Urrutia caught an 11-
yard TD pass from QB Hunter
Cantwell, and Joshua Tinch
hauled in a 39-yard heave in
the first quarter.

Tennessee Titans proved satisfy-

In its final regular-season

Jacksonville rested several

managed to rout the Titans by

a 40-13 count.

think it was really big for us to
go out and play the way we
played." .

Some good catches from

St. Johns River last week

E excellent catches of speck-
led trout and sheepshead
were taken out of the river
last week. Whiting by the
dozens were cleaned by pier
anglers. The hot spot seemed
to be the very end of the pier.
The pompano have moved
south but the bite was on in
the surf near Melbourne last
Wednesday and Thursday.
The cleaning tables on the
Jacksonville Beach Pier were in
full use by anglers last week as
they were cleaning great catch-
es of whiting caught from the
end of the pier. ,Spencer
Brogden, Mike Youngblood, Al
Wiltshire and Colin and Phillip
Grossman were just a few of
the pier anglers who iced down
plenty of filets. They brought
between 50 and 100 whiting
over 'the rails of the pier on
each trip.
Wade and Kathy Randall
made.two trips to the jetties
last week for sheepshead. On
Wednesday, they boxed 20
sheepshead to six pounds and
on Friday, along the rocks, they


pulled up 18 sheepshead.
Brian Russell and friends
fished the bottom about 12
miles offshore last Friday arid
captured an 18-pound grouper,
one snapper and 60 seabass.
Captains Mike Morris and
David King made a check-out
run along the roks last week
and caught 14 sheepshead.

Fishman used saidfleas for bait
and caught 97 pompano and a
dozen whiting.
The most. unusual catch
made last week was an eight-

out of joint. 0, cursed
i spite, that ever I was born
to set it right!"
I couldn't agree more.
I hardly know where I am or
what I should be doing. My hol-
iday schedule is all upside down
and inside out. I am'a rudderless
ship adrift on a stormy sea. The
pattern of my holiday happen-
ings is out of sync.
It is supposed to go (and has
for nearly thirty years) -
, Thanksgiving,, Christmaa,,,,kTe,
Last Gasp, New Year's Eve. But
no; thanks to the Gasp being
shoved up to December 10,
everything is out of kilter. I am
left with the feeling that some-
thing very vital is missing and if,
there is one thing I hate it is a
I can't take it when the natural
order of things is put topsy-
turvy. Next year I hope we can
Sget back to the way it ought to
be: Thanksgiving, Christmas,
The Last Gasp, New Year's Eve.
Otherwise, like Hamlet, I will
have to take matters into my
own hands.
While on the subject of The
SLast Gasp, I can report that the
small, but appreciative, crowd
that turned out for the race had
a, great time. In addition to
many of the usual local runners,

f I. 9

there was a team from the Navy
and a liberal sprinkling of skin-
ny, fit, high school runners. It
made for a good field..
Some of those participating,
did so because they had heard
that it was the last time the race
would be run. Even Mother
Nature .cooperated; despite the
heavy rains all week, on race day
the weather could hardly have
been better.
Running for the first time on
the new, abbreviated 5-kilometer
cross-country course, Owen
Shott, of 1st Place Sports,
showed a clean pair of heels to
the field of 83 runners. His win-
ning time of 17 minutes and 43
seconds was pretty good, consid-
ering the difficulty of terrain and

ShotWs racing inactivity, thanks
to a lengthy hamstring injury.
The question on all the run-
ners' lips was, "Is this it?" The
"it" being the final, illustrious
Gasp race, or not. According to
Jacksonville Track Club board
member, John TenBroeck, if the
race dies it will not be the track
club that kills it.
"It all depends on what JU
does with the golf course,"
TenBroeck said.
JU has sold a large tract of its
northern most property to a
de qvlpe!eer-fr; ,the,, b1l)ding# i f
some pricey condos. According
to the deal struck with the devel-
oper, JU's disused nine-hole golf
course that currently looks like a
swamp overrun by monster
weeds must be reborn as a
swanky, up-market golf course
for use by the swanky up-market.
people who live in those condos.
Then the question shall be:
WillJU (which will still own and
operate the course) allow the
track club a couple of hours use
of the campus and golf course
once a year, as they have done.
-for the past 29 years?
We may have a few years to
wait on that deliberation. In the
meantime we can run our hearts
out in JU's still nice cross-coun-
try course.
Here we are at the start of
another year and you know

what that means: Those pesky
New Year's resolutions are upon
us again. Here are a few sugges-
tions to set you on the right foot
to fitness in 2006:
1: Start a 'streak'. Commit
yourself to doing a. minimum of
three miles every day. It does not
matter if it is running, jogging or
walking. Do three miles and do
it each day, indoors or out, no
matter what. Be proud of your
streak, mark each day off on
your, calendar, and 'keep your
streak alive.
up half an hour early, postpone
dinner thirty minutes or :use
your lunch hour to get in your
3. Start an office workout
group. It's easier with others and
a lot harder to skip it too.
Getting the group up and run-
ning Js up to you, so lead by
example and invite others to
join in. Chances are at least
some of them will.
4. Cut out 100 calories a day.
You can-easily do it. We all con-
sume some unnecessary calories.
One hundred calories isn't
much, less than one doughnut,
but it adds up to 3,000 calories a
month, 36,000 calories a year.
Avoiding that many calories and
doing three m iles a day will have
you fit, healthy and slim before
the year is out.

Croquet anyone?

New Year's Day contest draws 'eclectic group'

For more than 20 years,
Sherry Stoppelbein has made
award-winning baked goods
and wedding cakes in the St.
Augustine and the Jacksonville
A graduate of the Culinary
School at the First Coast
Technical Institute in St.
Augustine, she has also owned
restaurants in St. Augustine
and Vilano Beach, operates a
catering business, and manu-
factures and sells her own line
of datil pepper products.
Stopplebein said a cake-dec-
orating class she took was so
much fun that it became the
impetus for her subsequent
training and career.
Last November, Stoppelbein
opened the Hot Shot Bakery
and Luvin' Oven Cakes and
Catering in St. Augustine.
In addition to stocking her
line of Datil pepper products
(including Datil B Good hot
sauce), she showcases creative
new ways to use datil peppers
at her new shop.
Stoppelbein and her hus-
band, Lorenze, are St.
Augustine natives who share
the same Minorcan heritage.
She said the datil pepper
was brought to the area by set-
tlers from Minorca in the late
18th century.
The peppers are reputed to
only grow well in this area
and their unique taste, both
sweet and hot, is a common

Stoppelbein has gone .i
beyond the traditional use of
datil peppers and offers
unique baked goods with datil
peppers at her bakery. Some of
these popular items are datil
cranberry white chocolate
cookies, layered star cookies
filled with raspberry and datil
jam, datil scones, datil biscot-
ti, and datil sourdough bread
and rolls.
"We keep a supply of sam-
ples for people to try at the
shop. Everyone's reaction is
different depending on their
tolerance for heat," she said.
"For example, I think the
heat of the peppers in the
scones adds a glow to the
There is also a wide assort-
ment of more traditional
baked goods at the bakery
including breads, pastries,
cookies, French cr-me cakes,
and other types of cakes.
Stoppelbein has baked wed-
ding cakes for area brides for a
couple generations and this
continues to be something she

\Ve actually had people
who did not get to play," said
Patrick Murphy who, along
with his fiance Barb
McCarthy, hosted the event
in his back yard on the
Intracoastal Waterway.
With temperatures hover-
ing in the 60s under mostly
cloudy skies, play proceeded
between two teams of two
players as others watched,
sometimes offering advice or
points of strategy.
For example, if a player's
ball hits an opponent's with
enough force, the opponent's

ball might be moved to an
unfavorable spot on the field.
At the same time, the player
would be allowed an extra
stroke for hitting the oppo-
nent's ball.
The advice, coupled with a
bumpy grass surface, helped
to level the playing field, giv-
ing even newcomers a run at
a win.
Not everyone at the event

took part in the tournament.
Spectators sat in lawn chairs
or mingled and partook of
food and drink set up in a
International rules of the
game were adhered to, and
players were asked to wear all
white clothing. Most did.
The tournament official,
Stewart Wilkins of Ponte
Vedra Beach, was properly

attired in white cap, shoes,
slacks and sweater, set off by
a black bow tie,
When he himself was hot
playing, Wilkins used a clip
board to keep track of partici-
pants and their points
Most of the guests, Murphy
said, are part of or offshoots
from a core group of Beaches
residents who began meeting
at First Street Grille in
Jacksonville Beach.
"It's kind of an eclectic
group," he said.
Members of the group
often socialize and travel
together, with the annual
croquet tournament, now in
its 18th year, as an identify-
ing event.
Murphy said Monday that
he had already gotten tele-
phone calls from would-be
competitors who didn't make
it for this year's New Year's
Day contest.
"They all definitely want to
go to the awards banquet,"
which will likely be held at
some Beaches establishment,
he said.

Sherry Stopplebein invites cookie bakers to enter their cookie
recipes in the Hot Shot Cookie Contest. The event is part of the
grand opening celebration of the Hot Shot Bakery in St.

Designer draws on European roots -a

Fashion designer Cathy Tuhasz
relied on the kindness of'
strangers to help her take the
skills she -developed in her
European homeland and translate
them to a business in Jacksonville
Now, she finds herself return-
ing the favor, helping women
select clothing with the style and
fit that "can change the way a
person feels and looks." Juhasz
said'. ,
Juhasz, who was born in
Communist Transylvania in the.
1950s, began her business from
the ground up, working t-wo jobs
to buy a tailoring shop on Third
Street in 1992, she said.
That was the year after she
emigrated to New York, leaving
behind the chaos of Eastern
Europe following the fall of the.
Berlin Wall in 1989, she said.
"I knew that America had
,something for me and my tal-
ents," said Juhasz, who grew up
helping in her mother's clothing
business and was educated in and
taught design'before coming to
After visiting a friend in
Jacksonville Beach, she said, she
fell in love with the community
and relocated, although she,
spoke "not a word" of English,
she said, which complicated her

new alterations business. ::
"The phone rings, and I pickup
the phone, and I had no idea
what they want," Juhasz said in a
distinct Hungarian accent.
It was her customers who
taught her how to speak English,
she said, noting that communi-
cating with her clients in person
helped speed the process.
"They taught me English with
such patience" in a place where
everything was new to her, she
said: "New world, new culture,
new language, new people."
Jacksonville Beach police also
helped her in the early years, she
said, making sure she got to her
car safely after working 18-hour
days and leaving for home in the
dark of night.
"They did that every night for
four years," she said.
With her alteration business
going, luhasz turned to her first
love designing and found
shops in Sawgrass, St. Augustine,
Amelia Island and Avondale for
her first collection, she said.
But the entire collection was
lost in shipping, she said, taking
her nearly to the point of quit-
"I still don't understand why
God challenged me that way,"
she said.
That was in 2001. In December
2004, she opened Cathy Juhasz
Boutique, and today her time is

occupied by her three businesses:
Cathy's Alterations at 929 N.
Third St., the boutique at the
same address, which offers
Juhasz's label and about 50 other
lines of women's fashions, and
her design business.
Juhasz, whose shop has casual
to formal clothing for women in
sizes 0 to 16, priced from $40 to
about $800, said she begins a
design with the colors and tex-
tures of fabric in mind.
Most of the fabrics she uses are
from Europe and are showcased
at presentations she attends in
Paris each March and September,
she said.
Taking clues from designs
shown on the fashion circuit, she
works on the next season's collec-
tion, creating her line "in that
direction," she said.
For example, if designers are
showing narrow pant legs and
short skirts, she will avoid wide
legs and long skirts,.she said.
The Cathy Juhasz collection is
sewn by workers in Romania
because "the work what they do is
beautiful," she said.
Now, she said, her business is
"OK" and she is "fighting and
working hard tqdo it better.
"I'm not where I want to be
yet," she said, adding that she has
no desire to live anywhere else.
"I have peace here, and this is
my home."

military families. Each class selected their "Angel" to shop for. They brought gifts or a contribu-
tion to help make another child's Christmas brighter.

Morris Busbia, your focal GEICO Insurance
agent, wants Beaches residents to know that they
can find the best prices in automobile and motor-
cycle insurance and the best service at the GEICO
office right here at the beach.
Born and raised in the Jacksonville area, Morris
has been serving the area's drivers as a general
field representative for GEICO for 18 years. For
the past 13 years his office has been located at
997 Atlantic Blvd. in Atlantic Village. He and his
staff of four agents would be happyto have you
call or visit the office for a free rate quotation.
Morris says that, on the average, GEICO has the
lowest prices in town in fact, by as much as 15
percent lower.
Customers have the advantage of not only the
great rates that GEICO offers but also the person-
alized service and attention that only a local
agent can provide. "There may be some miscon-
ception that we principally offer insurance to
Government employees, but that's not true,"
Morris explained. "We insure the general public -
anyone who needs personal auto or motorcycle
insurance, and GEICO even' offers insurance
worldwide." With offices across the country,
you're always near a GEICO representative and
can remain insured by GEICO if you leave the
GEICO can provide insurance to a. variety of
drivers even those with accidents or tickets on,
their driving records. Morris is also happy to
insure the teenage drivers in your family. Also
available is Cycle-Gard coverage, which offers
money-saving policies for motorcycle riders and
those who enjoy today's popular bikes and scoot-
Morris and his staff work with their customers,
and. payments can be arranged to best fit your
budget. After the initial down payment you can
arrange to pay your premium in full or use a con-.
venient payment plan. And after one easy phone
call or quick visit to Morris's office to establish
the insurance coverage that best meets your
needs, everything else can be handled by tele-
phone or mail. Their commitment to service
ensures that they will spend the time needed to
determine your individual insurance needs and
to explain available options.
Because GEICO has three separate companies to
-insuredrivers, everyone gets the best rat.p'ossibl" -
based on their driving record and circtitis'iih'c". If'
you have a good driving record, GEICO will give
you a discounted rate. Ask Morris and his friend-
ly, knowledgeable staff about additional dis-
counts that ..are available; based on affiliations
with professional associations and special mar-
keting campaigns.
Morris and his staff work with the military per-
sonnel in our area and understand the special
needs and situations of those in the service. After

It's all in knowing how- and caring enough
to do the "extras" others overlook.
Call Ed, your Comfort Advisor, he will guide
you through the process. This is a free
service offered by...

Everyone in the office is well trained in auto

Dear \\es,
It was a great da. for me when you came and gave a presentation on the benefits of
htness at the Palm Valley Senior Center. i had always thought about the benefits of
having a trainer, and looking great like all the mo\ie stars, but never knew I could
actually do it until now
Throughout my life, I have tried on m% own to exercise and eat correctly. I hja e
joined some great gyms, but always quit after a short while. I just couldn't hold
myself accountable. I even tried several group classes, started strong, but then
fizzled to not going at all. I guess I lack the motivation to stick with a program on
my own.
last Near. I started noticing how my body was changing with age. I had become
overweight and $weak, to put it bluntly. Afteryour presentation at the Senior Center,
S' I knew I had to take action, and I'm so glad I did. The first week of training.you
"J evaluated me and compared mv results to mN age groul I was ranked'poor' in most
f areas with .i few average' ratings Ater seven weekl we retested and I was amazed. I
\\ s ranked 'above average' to''ecellent' n most areas T had lostweight, lost inches,
gained tle.ubilirt and balan'-- and actually gained muscle'
I would ne er do on my ownn what my Fitness Togetier trainer, Jim, gets me to do
during my sessions. This is the best thing I could have ever done for myself. It is so
great to see the process of firming up, getting smaller and to being able to lift with
ease things I couldn't budge before
1 know the benefits of exercise I am more aware of tr-e benefits more than ever as
I enter mi 'Golden Years'. I want to stay active and healthy for a long time, and
]5 Fitness Together is helping me do just that.
