Waterfront walkway proposed for Mayport fishing village
by JEFFREY MINTON
A development company that
recently purchased a large portion of
the waterfront property in Mayport
Village is interested in working with
the city of Jacksonville to construct a
public boardwalk along the water-
front, according to officials with
Mayport Waterfront Partnership
Partnership Chairman John
Reserve said Tuesday that Vestcorp
recently closed on several properties
in the historic fishing village in
Jacksonville. Some of the properties
which have been sold along Ocean
Street are the La Cruise restaurant and
its parking lot across the street, the
Atlantic Seafood (formerly Parson'si
property, a basin, three parcels of land
across from the waterfront and the
former Waterfront Partnership build-
ing, he said.
"They [Vestcorp] own about 500 to
600 feet of the waterfront property
plus a lot of land across the road,"
Nleserve said at the partnership's
monthly meeting, adding that anoth-
er property was expec-ted --c
Tuesday and at least iv6w other parcels
are under contract.
The company has plans to develop
commercial properties with residen-
tial units on the upper levels along
the waterfront and wants to maintain
public access to the water with a
boardwalk, said partnership project
manager Ed Lukacovic Tuesday.
"The developer does plan to make
access to the waterfront available to
the public," Lukacosic said. "That's
very important to him."
"His hope is he would like the city
[of Jacksonville] to go in with him for
some kind of riverwalk or boardwalk."
Lukaco\ic met with the developer
recentlyy and said that Vestcorp is
interested in maintaining the village'ss
fishing and shrimping industry.
"The whole idea is there's a market
for people who would love that type
of atmosphere," he said.
Meserve and Lukacovic said the
boardwalk, whose location is given
only as along the waterfront, would
be a good addition to the community.
The partnership board late last year
heard concerns from village residents
who said they feared that anticipated
development in the area would push
out the fishing industry. They
expressed concern that newcomers to
the village who could spend upwards
of $500,000 on a condo may not want
to live around the sights, sounds and
smells of a fishing village.
But board members at that time
and again this week said that keeping
the village's fishing and shrimping
industry intact is their main goal
amidst the wave of development.
Tuesday the board unanimously
approved adding language in a pro-
posed zoning overlay for the village
that recognizes the village'ss fishing
heritage. The language acknowledges
that with the fishing industry comes
certain things such as fish odor and
fishing equipment stored on resident,

Folsom's two 18-pound dogs,
"We were just sitting there
when we saw two big dogs run
toward us from 9th Avenue
North," said Lance Folsom, a
former member of the city's
S Planning Commission.
Folsom said the dogs
"swooped in and attacked
Sidney, an Australian terrier. His
wife Janet, holding Casey, the
couple's 14-year-old Westie, was
knocked to the ground with the
With Sidney locked in the
jaws of one of the pit bulls,
Folsom said he struggled to free
the dog while helping his wife,
get to her feet while keeping a
hold on Casey.
"We were rolling around on
the ground and they kept latch-
ing on the dogs," he said. "I
don't know how long it went
on. It went on for a while."
Folsom said the couple were
finally able to stagger over to the
park's playground equipment
where the male.and female pit
bulls continued to try and prey
on the dogs.
"I think the hand of God
Reached in and pulled us up," he
During the attack, Folsom sus-
tained a bite on the top of his
left hand. Janet Folsom was bit-
ten three times on her left hand
and the dogs both suffered
puncture wounds, police report-
"They did not require sutures
but we were worried about infec-
tion," Folsom said.
Using his cell phone, Folsom
called the Jacksonville Beach
Police Department and disco'v-
ered that this was-not the first
incident involving these partic-
"[Animal Control Officer
Robert Wade] knew the dogs.
They live in front of the park at
9th Avenue North," he said.
"He's got a file on both dogs."
The file notes a near-fatal
attack last July, also at Tall Pines
Park. The victim in the July 15
attack was a maltese, who suf-
fered life-threatening injuries
including a collapsed lung.

Mom guilty in twins' deaths
BY LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER R
.Leslie Demeniuk was found
guilty Tuesday of two counts of
first-degree murder in the
deaths of her twin 4-year-old
sons in her father's Ponte Vedra
condominium almost five years
The six-member jury deliber-
ated about two hours Monday
and just over one hour Tuesday
before finding Demeniuk, 36,
guilty of killing her sons by
shooting them in the head.
Florida law requires a sen-
tence of life without parole for
each count of first-degree mur-
der. The state is not seeking the
By the end of the week,
Circuit Judge John Alexander
was expected to set a sentenc-
ing date within the next 30
Deliberations began around
4:30 p.m. Monday after jurors
listened to closing arguments.
"She knew that what she had
done was wrong"' Noah
McKinnon, assistant s:te attor-
ney, told jurors about the
March 17, 2001 deaths of James
and John Demeniuk.
"The intent to kill was in her
mind when she looked into

forehead and pulled the trig-
According to McKinnon,
Demeniuk was watching televi-
sion with her sons that day in
her father's Sawgrass condo-
minium where she was living
with the boys.
Demeniuk was in the process
of getting a divorce from the
boys' father, Tommy
McKinnon said Demeniuk
walked to her father's closet and
pulled out a gun. She loaded
the gun, walked back into her
bedroom, and shot James in the
forehead while he was lying
down, he said.
John began to run away in
panic, McKinnon said. His
mother shot and missed him
twice before catching him and
ending his life the same way.
Using the words of several
witnesses who spoke with
Demeniuk on the day of the
murders, McKinnon argued
that she was "sane" when she
pulled the trigger..
Friends and family along
with deputies and medical staff
who encountered her that day

Defense attorney Bill
Sheppard countered that
Demeniuk was delusional and
Sheppard said that she saw
the boys as an extension of her-
self and that she intended to
shoot herself after killing the
boys to end all of their unhap-
But she never got that far,
"The only explanation for
this hideous, hideous act is that
she thought she was saving her
children," Sheppard told the
Demeniuk, who seemed
reserved -and unemotional
throughout most of the trial,
.began to quietly weep during
Her father, who sat behind
her in the audience during the
two weeks of the trial, also
seemed unaffected by the court
Sheppard said Demeniuk's
delusional state of mind on the
day of the murders was "gener-
ated by the medication she was
taking," which included Xanax
and the antidepressant Paxil.
Based on the testimony of
some expert witnesses,
Sheppard said selective sera-
tonin reuptake inhibitors
(SSRI's) like Paxil may some-
times produce rare side effects
such as suicidal and homicidal
thoughts and psychosis.
He also said the drugs are
associated with alcohol abuse.
Demeniuk's blood alcohol level
was 0.27 more than three
times the legal level of intoxica-
tion on the day of the mur-
"Where we are is on the cut-
ting edge of 'what do these
drugs do to us?'" Sheppard said.
"And I don't think we know."
But McKinnon argued that
Demeniuk was always "a
drinker" and pointed out that
several witnesses said she could
hold her liquor very well.
"She chose a path in life that
was destructive, and that
destructive path lead her t6

McKinnon said pointing to the

PZAto review Nocatee's improvements to CR210
by LAURA FOWLER
More pieces of the 15,000-
acre Nocatee puzzle will go
before the St. Johns County
Planning and Zoning Agency
(PZA) Thursday, as the incre-
mental development west of
the Intracoastal Waterway con-
tinues to progress.
SThe PARC group, developers
of Nocatee, are seeking the
PZA's approval of the second
phase of road improvements to
County Road 210 along with a
site plan for another neighbor-
hood and a deadline extension
for the construction of a fire
"[Nocatee] is an incremental
master development plan,"
Lindsay Haga, a planner for
the county, said in an inter-
Because Nocatee is so large,
Haga said the developer will
gradually present to the PZA
each site plan for new neigh-
borhoods and commercial cen-
ters until the development
reaches build-out in about 25
"This will provide for more
public involvement," Haga
SBeing built along'both sides
of 210 between the
Intracoastal Waterway and U.S.
1, Nocatee is expected to bring
about 35,000 years by the time
it is complete.
Out of about 10 "villages" in
Nocatee, two have already
been approved: Oak Hammock
Village, an age-restricted
neighborhood, and Coastal
Oaks at Nocatee, an upscale,
The first homes in these
neighborhoods are expected to
be finished in early 2007.
On' Thursday, the PZA will
consider another neighbor-
hood called Town Center
South, a 589 unit development
which lies just south of the
"loop road" that will circle the
SThe designs for the 379 sin-
gle family and 160 multifamily
units will follow a "traditional
neighborhood" theme, accord-
ing to Haga.
This will include a grid net-
work in the street patterns and
about four acres of parks with-
in walking distance.
.Developers also have been
working with St. Johns County
Fire Services to determine the
best site for a fire station in
According to John .Ruley,
plan reviewer for the Fire
Department, that station will
be somewhere within the town
center in order to maintain an
average response time of 6
"We're in agreement that the
town center would be the most
likable place and it also would
fit into the old town concept
of the construction [in that
area]," Ruley said.
An exact site for the fire sta-
tion has not been designated,
but Ruley said based on the
gradual population increase in
Nocatee, the station will not
be needed until about 2010.
Until that time, a fire station
that is to be built at Pine Island
Road and U.S. 1 in the ,next
few years will provide fire serv-
ice to Nocatee residents.
As for the road improve-
ments, Haga said that the PZA
will consider the plans for
phase 2 of the Nocatee
Parkway the new 210 -
which will extend Racetrack
Haga said phase 2 of the
road improvements should
begin some time before 2009 if
approved by the PZA.

tee charged with making the

Director Steve Lindorff, Jimmy
Wilkins of the Parks and

Fire Chief Gary Frazier also sit
on the committee.
A fifth member may partici-
pate in the process if schedul-
ing conflicts do not arise,
Redevelopment Agency last
October authorized the city to
accept proposals from qualified
firms to construct the 3,000-
square-foot building replacing,
the present Penman Road facil-
Paxson said committee
members will look at. each
firm's past accomplishments,
capabilities and "will pick who
can do the best job to construct
the new parks and rec building
at South Beach Park."
Lindorff said the construc-
tion companies must also
prove their ability to design a
building able to withstand
harsh storm conditions.
"It is our intent to have the
architectural firm who is select-
ed to do the design part of this
. contract to look into ways
that the building can be hard-
ened against tropical storms,"
Lindorff said at the Oct. 17
The new facility planned
near the South Beach Fire
Station will serve as a second-
ary municipal site if the
Jacksonville Beach City Hall is
rendered inoperable during a
"The building will be pre-
wired and set up so that we can
set up our computer systems
and essentially perhaps even
operate the city government
out of, that location in the
event that [City Hall] is dam-
aged or destroyed," Lindorff
The new facility will be
designed to function as a gov-
ernment building with elevat-
ed construction to resist "some
of the storms that we get or
might expect to get,"he said.
Features will include a
kitchen, meeting, area, storage
space, administrative offices,
locker roomsand restrooms.
Paxson said based on the
present calendar, the commit-
tee will forward its recommen-
dation to the City Council to
award the contract in early

4). Taking 'over the.
responsibility of the city staff to

adds uncertainty and thus low-
ers the value of properties, since
not even staff can tell a seller or
buyer what they would be per-
mitted to do..

investor, I like to see facts, fig-

actions could, in fact, create
more sidewalks, parks, mainte-

tive projects that you may see fit
to implement to improve our
quality of life.
In my opinion, stopping the
evolution of Atlantic Beach is
super-egotistical since it, is say-
ing that the millions of years of
evolution should stop now -
because this is the blip in time,
that I walk the earth.
Atlantic Beach has evolved
into a desirable upscale commu-
nity and deserves to have desir-
able upscale homes that con-
temporary and future citizens,
and our children, would want
to live in. .-

technician at the CVS located at 414 Atlantic
Blvd. regarding suspicious photographs, accord-
ing to the report.
The employee told police that when she was
processing a customer's photographs she
noticed that several of the pictures were of a
female employee at CVS entering and exiting
the store, according to the report. When police
arrived to the store, they viewed other photo-
graphs being processed for the customer and
found that most of the pictures were of different
women taken in different locations.
Some of the locations were Fletcher Senior
High, Fletcher Middle School and Walmart,
according to the report.
Police told the the employee to notify them
when the customer came to pick up the pictures.
When the customer picked up the pictures
around noon the employee called police and
they made contact with the man in the nearby
K-mart parking lot at 500 Atlantic Boulevard.
The man at first denied taking the pictures of
the women, but eventually said that he did take
the photographs, according to the report.
When police asked the man whyhe took the
pictures he did not have an answer, according to
the report. But when police asked the him
specifically about the pictures taken of women
at the schools, the man said that his girlfriend's
daughter attends the senior high and that he
picks her up from school, according to the
report. He had no explanation for being around
the middle school, say police.
Police advised the man to stay away from area
schools and and issued him a trespass warning
for the CVS store at the request of the employee
at the store, according to the report.
The schools' resource officers were informed
of the incident and the report was forwarded to

tasty, too, especially if shop-

Joe Shannon was hoping
for a modest turnout for his
lecture on whales last
Saturday at the Guana
reserve education center in
South Ponte Vedra Beach.
What he wasn't expecting
was a standing-room-only
More than 170 people
attended Shannon's 2 p.m.
presentation on "Whales &

extended version of a talk
Shannon has given on cruise
ships for the past few years.

be nice," Shannon, a St.
Augustine resident, said.
"When I saw how many
people were there, I, said,
'Wow,' and they [Guana offi-
cials] said, 'Wow.' "
Shannon's 45-minute talk
on whales, highlighted by
the tale of the ill-fated whal-
ing ship Essex, which
inspired the Herman Melville
. novel "Moby Dick," helped;
set a new one-day visitation
record at Guana, which
opened last September.
"Whales are a natural
draw," said Shannon, a
Guana reserve volunteer who
taught high school history
teacher for 31 years in Long
During Saturday's lecture,
Shannon said whales kept
New England towns such as
Nantucket, Mass.,, afloat in
the 19th century.
"Whales had products
human beings wanted,"
Shannon told the audience.
"Whaling was a business.
Towns depended on it. You
could get 100 barrels of oil
out of a blue whale."
Shannon said sperm

were "the champion divers
of all whales."
Sperm whales could dive
to depths of 5,000 feet and
"stay down," Shannon said,
for about an hour .
In the early 1800s, an albi-
no sperm whale was notori-
ous for "dunking" whale
boats in the Pacific, Shannon
The 100-ton male sperm
whale was known as "Mocha
Dick" because it was often
sighted near the island of
Mocha in southern Chile.
The whale immortalized in
Melville's 1859 novel was
not the same one that
downed the Essex ih the
South Pacific in 1820.
Shannon said a smaller
sperm whale repeatedly
charged the bow of the
Essex, causing its 20-person
crew to abandon ship in
Only eight of the 20
sailors lived to tell the tale.
Five were rescued after drift-

months. Three more were
rescued on a deserted island.

traditional Bolivian dishes, including Rollo de Queso,. Llajua, and her favorite, cooked lettuce dish.

by KATHY NICOLETTI
. Ponte Vedra resident
Carolina Woodruff says that
she "loves cooking" and has
been doing so since she was a
child in her native Bolivia.'
S Like inany little girls.
Woodruff began by baking
cookies. Within a short
amount of time, her skill in
the kitchen included not only
cookies but also pastry baking
and other dishes.
Woodruff said women in
Bolivia often have formal tea
parties where they serve sweet
and salty pastries with the tea.
Although her family had a
housekeeper to do the cook-'
ing, by the time she was 12,
S Woodruff was baking the pas-
tries for her mother's weekly
A family cookbook, "La
Cocina en Bolvia," was
Woodruff's first choice for
recipes as she learned to cook.
The book has a thousand '
recipes and Woodruff brought
a copy of it with her when
she came to the U.S.
Bolivian cooking uses plen-
ty of fresh vegetables, the
dozens of varieties of potatoes
available there, cheeses,
meats, and chicken. Lunch is
the main meal of the day and,
traditionally is eaten at home
during a two-hour lunch

pers, unique to Bolivia and
nearby countries in South
America, are essential to sea-

After graduating from col-
lege in Bolivia, Woodruff
came to the U.S. to become
fluent in English. She met hei
husband, Tom, in Washington
D.C., and the couple moved
to Ponte Vedra five years ago
with Tom's son and daughter.
Woodruff is currently study-
ing for a degree in business
management at the University
of North Florida.
When she has time,
Woodruff said she can easily
spend the entire day in the
kitchen. Many of her Bolivian
recipes have become family
favorites, even with the
teenagers ii the family.
Lettuce and rice are the
main.ingredients for two of
Woodruff's recipes. The dish
made with lettuce has been in
her family from at least the
time of her own childhood.
Woodruff said thatyeople
who don't care for vegetables
like this dish, including:13-
year-old Annabelle Woodruff.
The dish can be served for a
light vegetarian meal or as a'
side dish with steak or other

rice made with green onions
and cheese. These are eaten
hot and crispy, or the leftovers
can be eaten as a snack right
from the refrigerator as people
do in Bolivia.
To vary the rice dish,
Woodruff created a recipe for
a three-layer version with a
meat layer between two layers
ofthe rice mixture. Ground
steak is cooked and seasoned
with tomato sauce and hot
peppers along with cumin,

Llajua is a fresh tomato
sauce that is used on every-

Shannon said the irony of
the Essex is that the sailors
steered clear of islands known
to be inhabited by cannibals,
but ultimately resorted to can-

"That's the whale of the

Gateway Conference soccer championship
Senators lose to Mandarin
in game's final 30 seconds
By ROBERT DeANGELO
In a span of 48 hours, players
on Fletcher's girls soccer team
experienced the elation of an
overtime victory and the
despair of losing the Gateway
Conference title with 30 sec-
onds left to plpy.
Last Thursday, Senators

Lencina boosted her teammates
with a tremendous individual
effort in overtime to score the
goal in a 2-1
defeat of Paxon
at Patton Park.

The game was a hard-fought'
physical affair producing few
quality scoring chances for
either side. But first half goals
by the Senators' Caitlin Ross
and Paxon's Leslie Sall left the
score knotted at 1 after 40 min-
utes of play. A scoreless second
half meant two five-minute
overtime periods, with Lencina
capitalizing to notch the gold-
The win put Fletcher in the

Mandarin squad Saturday after-
noon in bluster)' conditions.
For 79 minutes and 30 seconds
the teams battled from one end
of the field to the other, again
producing few solid scoring
Defense ruled the afternoon,
with neither team able to
mount a consistent offensive
attack. In fact, Fletcher earned
only one corner kick and the

clock and both teams eyeing
OT, Mustangs forwards Kate
Bitetto and Emily Moss charged
on goal after a free kick and
somehow managed to chip the
ball over Senators keeper Anna
Donaldson who was rushing
out of her net to cut down the
angle. Bitetto nudged the ball
past Donaldson and Moss got a
knee on the bouncing sphere to
steer it toward an empty net for
the only tally
of the contest.

her eyes were as big as dough-
While the Senators (14-4-1)
had to swallow the disappoint-
ing defeat Sunday, players
would not have to wait long for
a shot at revenge. Mandarin
(15-5-2) and Fletcher were slat-
ed to go at it Tuesday night at
Orange Park in the District 1-
"We've already played them
three times this season, but this
game just reminded us of their
strengths and weaknesses," said
Donaldson. "I think we're pret-

points we were definitely better
than them, so I think we're all
looking forward to seeing them
Senators coach Megan
Pardue indicated Thursday
night's overtime game might
have drained players both
physically and emotionally.
"In the last two minutes we
kind of broke down on
defense," she said. "I think
maybe we were tired. We didn't
have verv many) subs, three of
our players are injured and a
starting player wasn't here.

Pardue said she hopes her
players learned a lesson about
playing from whistle to whistle
and that the loss will stoke the
Senators' competitive fire for a
measure of revenge against the
Fletcher's regular season is
over, and Pardue noted her
team's focus is now entirely on
the district championship.
"It'l be a test to see what
we're made of. If we win, if we
beat Mandarin on Tuesday, we
go on to play the winner of the
number three and number four
[seeded] teams," the coach said.
"And if we lose, we go home
and start eating cookies after
school and watching Oprah."
