Target begins

8-month-long

expansion

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
After nearly two years of
planning, Target will close its
garden center and food court
Sunday to prepare for a 17,000-
square-foot expansion to the
retail store at A1A and J. Turner
Butler Boulevard.
The $7 million expansion
will decrease the size of the
existing garden center from
7,000 to approximately 6,000-
square-feet, utilizing the
remaining space to completely
remodel the interior including
new ceilings, flooring and
shelves to equal the size of the
full-line stores.
Manager Chrissy Sullivan
Tuesday called the project a
standard Target expansion that
while increasing the floor space
from 630,000-square-feet to
647,000-square-feet will also
allow the store to offer a wider
range of products.
The City Council approved
the development order modifi-
cation in May, 2004 to allow
Target to move forward with its
expansion plans.

Shark attacks on decline worldwide


Punching shark's
nose saved one man

by CATHY KEEN
CONTRIBUTOR
Assertive and even aggressive human behavior
could explain why shark attacks worldwide
dipped last year, continuing a five-year down-
ward trend in close encounters with the oceanic
predators,


new University of Florida research suggests.
Greater safety precautions and in-your-face
responses to confrontations with sharks went a
long way in reducing the total number of attacks
from 65 in 2004 to 58 in 2005 and fatalities
from seven to four, said George Burgess, director
of the International Shark Attack File housed at
UF's
Florida Museum of Natural History. No fatali-
ties were reported at the Beaches.
In contrast, there were 78 shark attacks 11 of
them fatal -- in 2000, the all-time high record
year for attacks since statistics were kept, he


said.
There also were simply fewer sharks to attack
people, a result of a decline in populations
caused by overfishing of the carnivorous crea-
ture, which generally is slow to reproduce,
Burgess said.
"It appears that humans are doing a better job
of avoiding being bitten, and on the rare occa-
sion where they actually meet up with a shark,
are doing the right thing to save their lives," he
said.

is receiving numerous calls each day
from parents with young children that
don't know what to do.
"I've got people living in cars right
now. They have children going to school
tomorrow," Sable said, adding that teach-
ers at the schools are struggling with
whether they should call the Department
of Children and Families.

Code could permit
more outside tables

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Beach planners responding
to an influx of mixed use developments
are considering ways to loosen restrictions
on outdoor seating.
Planning and Development Director
Steve Lindorff Tuesday said the planning
staff has proposed a series of amendments
to the outdoor seating ordinance that, if
approved, would provide an exemption to
certain establishments.
The Planning Commission will hold a
public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27
in Council Chambers, 11 3rd St. N.,
Jacksonville Beach.
The present code prohibits outdoor
seating at any bar or restaurant within 100
feet from a residence or lodging.

NB agrees


to trash

contract

by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
Neptune Beach resi-
dents will pay $5.25 NeW contract:
more per month for
waste services begin-
ning in June and will
no longer have their
yard trash picked up
on Monday the
most desirable pickup
day for lawnm debris.
The City Council 1
Monday in a 3-2 vote
approved a new waste
service contract
which stipulates side
yard garbage collection two days per week,
one day per week recycling collection and
one day per week yard waste pickup on a
weekday other than Monday. The city
will have a new waste service provider,
Waste Pro.
The city's contract for waste collection
with Waste Services, Inc. expires in June
and the city rebid for a new contract.
Monday yard trash collection is typical-
1, more desirable e and costly because most
do lawn work on the weekends and take
the debris to the curb where it stays until
picked up, according to city officials.City
Manager Jim Jarboe Tuesday said that the
city will push to have the yard trash
picked up on Tuesdays. Garbage and recy-
cling pickup days will likely stay the same,
according to a representative from Waste
Pro Monday.
If the council had decided to continue
Monday yard trash collection in the new
waste contract the the monthly rate per
residential customer would have increased
$7 from $13 to $20. And that was too
much, said city councilors.

the tournament from hole 17
- said to be one of the most
difficult holes in golf -- there'
will be three jumbotrons
showing players on other holes
for the convenience of the
viewers, Kelly said.
Those watching at home will
also experience fewer commer-
cials, thanks to negotiations
between NBC and some of the
major sponsors of the tourna-
ment, including UPS and Price
Waterhouse Cooper.
The sponsors agreed to limit
commercial times to no more
than five minute per hour.
As for the course itself, seven
miles of soil from the Stadium
Course will be removed and
replaced with sand to accom-
plish "firm and fast" condi-
tions, David Pillsbury, chief
operating officer for PGA Tour
properties, told commissioners
in a presentation Tuesday.

Because of rainy weather -
part of the reason the tourna-
ment was moved from March

ing during the tournament has


become more inconsistent
over the years.
"We found that the enemy
was moisture," Pillsbury told
commissioners.


Fan Village project planned to enhance TPC viewing


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER

At the request of PGA Tour
officials, St. Johns County
Commissioners agreed last
week to help expedite plans to
improve the TPC at Sawgrass
in Ponte Vedra.
The project, which will start
immediately after this year's'
Player's Championship March
23 to 26, will include a new
clubhouse, renovations on the
two golf courses and the con-
struction of a "fan village" for
spectators.
With the tooper'tioi' bf the
county in the approval of the
plans and permits, the renova-
tions should be complete.
before the 2007 tournament,
said Vernon Kelly, president of
the golf course properties for
the TPC.
"We will have the finest
tournament facility in the
world," Kelly told commission-
ers last week.
Kelly said the fan village will
be part of an effort to improve
the' overall entertainment
experience for spectators of the
tournament, which has been
moved to May beginning next
year.
The village will replace the
main walkway where specta-
tors exit buses from offsite
parking and walk to the golf
course.
The area will include food
vendors, shops, restrooms, and
interactive touch screens for
guests to check the scores of
their favorite players.
The village will also feature
kiosks that will explain the his-
tory of the tournament and
the facilities.
Other entertainment
improvements include tech-
nology upgrades such as more
"jumbotron" screens for spec-
tators to watch other players
on different holes, Kelly said.
Since most spectators watch


The moist, spongy course
prevented golf balls from
rolling very far, almost making
the course easier for profes-
sional golfers in the tourna-
ment, according to Kelly.
Replacing the soil with sand
will result in harder fairways
and,- in turn, faster, rolling
balls, Kelly said.
"Actually, the golf course
will play like it was originally
played when it was designed,"
Kelly said in an interview
Thursday.
"It's actually harder for the
.pros."
The steep mounds at No. 17
'_!1' alko be slightly recon-
iEdelh"tb improve spectator
views.
And on every putting green,
a mechanical aeration system
will be installed underneath
the surface. The system will
acts a giant vacuum, sucking
moisture out of the green and
draining it into pipes below
the surface.
Even if it does rain during
the tournament, Kelly said,
officials will be able to dry the
greens quickly and return the
course to normal conditions.
During construction, the
Stadium Course will be closed.

Target:


Cont. from A-1
Target is located in the
Southend Redevelopment
Area Development of Regional
Impact (DRI) which regulates
the amount of commercial
square footage for all develop-
ment in the district.
City officials also amended
the Planned Unit
Development (PUD) for the
Marsh Landing Parkway shop-
ping center to accommodate
the additional square footage.
The council originally
denied a request for DRI mod-
ification because it was con-
nected to a request to move
Home Depot into the former
KMart location in South
Beach Plaza just north of the
Target site.
Because both projects exist
within the Southend DRI, city
planners combined both proj-
ects to avoid having to
address the DR[ twice. The
HOme Depot project was
rejected, however, forcing
Target officials to resubmit
their request separate of
Home Depot.
Opponents of both projects
cited concerns of increased
traffic and the impact on the
already congested AIA.
Traffic engineer Bill
Schilling using FDOT-
approved software said the
expansion will add 52 new
trips equivalent to 26 cars
entering and exiting the shop-
ping center during the P.M.
peak hour.
[The data] shows as the
store expands, the same cus-
tomers are coming more

S well as capturing people
already on the roadway net-
work, Schilling said.
Target will remain open dur-
ing the remodel, Sullivan said,
and the garden center will
reopen in late summer.
Sullivan said she estimates
the store to be 100 percent
complete by October but
noted that the time frame
could go up or down depend-
ing on construction.

On February 14, Gene and Cindy Grimmius, from left, co-chairs of the Plantation/Tom
Bush BMW Charity Event, presented a check for $13,000 to Mission House. Accepting the
check are Bill Tevepaugh, president of the Board of Directors of Mission House, and Jan
Flager, executive director of Mission House. "The Plantation members participated with
great enthusiasm to give something back to the community," said Gene Grimmius.
"Mission House was selected for the good work it does for the less fortunate members of
our community." Mission House, located at 800 Shetter Avenue in Jacksonville Beach, has
assisted over 10,000 men, women, and children since serving its first meal in 1997,

Matthews says no re-election bid for him


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF I WRITER
Jacksonville Beach City
Councilman Dick Matthews
Monday. announced this' week
that he will not run' in the
upcoming November election.
"After 10 years of service to
our great city, I have decided.
that I will not seek reelection to
the City Council," he said.
Matthews, who ran unop-
posed for Council Seat 2 in the
2004 election, served for six
years on the Planning
Commission before making the
leap as an elected official.
"It has always been my belief
that if you have the time and
inclination, you should volun-
teer to serve your community,."
Matthews has also participat-


ed in the Junior
Achievement
program, United
Way, Cub Scouts, .
Indian Guides,
Jaycees and .''
Exchange Club
and presently
serves on' .the
Board of. Matthews
Directors for the
Beaches Council on Aging and
Dial-A-Ride.
After a four-year stint on the
planning board, Matthews was
reappointed for a second term
before deciding to go for the
council.
"I don't consider myself a
politician. I never did," he said.
"I was encouraged to do this
four years ago by some members
of the past council and I was sur-

Under the proposed changes,
restaurants and outdoor bars

as there is no amplified music or
other noise emanating from the
area.
"Essentially it says that if
there is no live music or enter-
tainment with noisy or ampli-
fled sound [a business seeking
outdoor seating] would not be
subject to those standards,"
Lindorff said.
Several new developments
with a mix of residential and
commercial in the same struc-
ture prompted the planning
staff to review the ordinance.
"There are some projects out
there that might merit consider-
ation for conditional use that
S we can't process," Lindorff said.
An example, he said, is The
Metropolitan at 3rd Avenue
North. The mixed use develop-
ment will offer penthouse con-


donuniums, commercial office
space, garage -parking and retail
that could include coffee shops,
cafes or bistr"s with' .optdoar..
seating '" "
Lindorff also cited two
nightspots in the city's down-
town entertainment district that
were previously denied outdoor
seating.
An outdoor beer garden at
Lynch's Irish Pub at 514 1st St.
N. was blocked after Lindorff
dismissed the conditional use
request for outdoor seating, cit-
ing the pub's proximity to an
established residential use locat-
ed behind the proposed seating
area.
Lynch's general manager
Keith Doherty said the commis-
sion's decision was unfair
because the ordinance approved
by the City Council in March.
2002 was not applied to all busi-
nesses seeking outdoor seating
adjacent to residential proper-
ties.


Restaurants such as the
Bonefish Grille,.which backs up
to homes along Sandra Drive,

The Rite Spot was approved to
construct deck seating in April,
2003 and 11th South, located in
a residential community at 216
11th Ave. S., received the most
recent approval for outdoor
tables.
Lindorff said the proposed
changes will also recommend
that the lodging standards be
dropped entirely from the ordi-
nance.
Fionn MacCool's recently
applied to inove into the court-
yard area adjacent to the build-
ing but w.rithout the changes
the planning staff would be
required to deny the request..
Lindoiff said the modihca-
tions will also take into
account .the distance between
established residential uses and
outdoor noise.


prised at all the friends I had out
there."
This year, Matthews said he
expects his seat as well as Seat 6,
which will be vacated in
November by Councilor Linda
Spence, and Seat 4, held byl
Martha Ann Sibley, will be inter-
esting races as the level of com-
munity involvement continues
to spike. Spence will not be able
to run because of term limits.
Sibley has not announced if she
intends to seek reelection.
"I really think that there are a
lot of good people out there that
should run," Matthews said.
Matthews said he expects the
issues surrounding the 2006
election will echo many of the
concerns facing candidates two
vears ago.
"They are still going to go on
about height," he said, referring

ment passed in 2004 by a citi-
zen-led referendum sponsored
by the Beaches Watch group.
."It has been a great ride and I
think it is time for someone else
to step up and get involved," he
said.


Homeless:


Cont. from A-1
"They're [the teachers] say-
ing 'what do I do about this?'
And I'm telling them to give
the parents a chance to fix the
problem ... Because if the chil-
dren are homeless [in this
instance],, they can't help
that."
Within the last six months
hundreds of low-income fami-
lies have been forced out of
their residences along Mayport
Road and adjacent areas due to
their apartment complexes and
mobile home parks being
bought by developers who
plan to construct upscale con-
dominiums and office and
retail complexes.
According to the coalition,
the apartment complexes and
mobile home parks which have
been or are in the process of
evicting its residents are:
*The Buccaneer
Mobile Home Park 100 resi-
dences.
*The Palms

Apartments 100 residences.
S *Lakeside Mobile
Home Park 90 residences.
*NMayport Trace
Apartments 204 residences.
*Atlantic Arms
Apartments 100 residences.
Nautica Point
Apartments 100 residences.
Funkhouser said a total of
649 low-income families will
lose their homes over 2,000
Beaches area residents.
And she said that some are
being evicted with as little as
30 days notice and they don't
have the money to move any-
where else in the area.
"The problem along the
MayTport Road Corridor is over-
whelming," Funkhouser said,
adding that there is no longer
any available affordable hous-
ing at the Beach for the fami-
lies to move. "They have no
money to finance a move ...
even if they had the money,
there is no place to move in
this community."
"They are not only being
forced out of their homes, but
out of their communities as
well."
Sable said Tuesday that she is
upset because the apartment
complexes' management and
local officials knew about the
sales but did little to notify the
residents.
"People knew that this was
going to happen but then did-
n't tell the people," she said.
at' AtttiAc Arms paxtment's'


residents] did not find out
about it [being sold] until it
was printed in the paper."
Sable said she is frustrated
because she helped relocate
many people who were evicted
from the Palms Apartments
last year move into other apart-
ments which are now closing.
"I moved people from the
Palms [Apartments] to Lakeside
[Mobile Home Park] and to
Nautica Point [Apartments]
and now they haven't even
been there a year and they're
closed down," Sable said. "I've
got people calling me asking
"What do I do now?"
"We have people that
absolutely, positively have no
idea where to go or what to
do."
Sable, who served in the mil-
itary, said the the Navy should
have done more to help its
families avoid moving into the
apartments which were being
eyed for development changes.
"The military should have
been made aware [of the devel-
opment plans] six months ago.
They could have told the fami-
lies not to move into those
apartments," she said.
'She said Mayport Navy
Station was contacted by
Atlantic Beach city officials
Tuesday morning and that
May-port officials told them
there are approximately 300
housing units on base which
are "open," but are not afford-
able to all military members.
Sable said she is frustrated
that local officials are not
doing more to help the fami-
lies.
"If you don't want poor peo-
ple at the beach that's fine,"
she said. "It sucks. But then
help me get them off the
beach."
Atlantic Beach Mayor Don
Wolfson at Monday's meeting
said many of the residences in
question are located in
Jacksonville, outside Atlantic
Beach city limits, and that the
county must be made aware of
the problem.
"\Ve have our hands tied. We
can take care of what we can
take care of in our area,"
Wolfson said.
He told the group that he
will contact Jacksonville Mayor
John Peyton and other counts
officials to make them aware of
the issues.
"We will get attention to the
matter immediately," Wolfson
'said. "" -.. I ... .. "

Letters to the editor:


The 'fair share'

program is a sham


To the editor:
When we all voted for
Mayor Delaney's plan it was
laid out with logic to provide
for the future expansion of our
city.
c Certain structures and facili-
ties would be built and most of,
the roads, which were in great
need of repair and expansion,
would be taken care of in the
plan. What wasn't publicized
was the timetable or priority
with which the plan would be
executed. Most voters said yes
to the tax so the roads that
EVERYONE used would be
taken care of.
We've all seen the buildings,,
some we didn't need right
away because they serve, a
small portion of our communi-
ty like an equestrian center, got
first priority and the money.
.Now we're seeing road projects
that can't be properly complet-:
ed because of a lack of funds,
yet-the Mayor is still consider-'
ing going. to the city council
--andcasking to double the price
tag of $190 million, plus the
$60 million already invested
for a courthouse that hopefully
less than 10 percent of the
* public will ever enter. .
If we .really need 'a new
courthouse then I recommend
that that project not start until
all of the road projects in the.
county and the Beaches that
were in the original Greater
Jacksonville plan are fully,
funded and completed at least
"as originally presented to us
before we voted to raise our
taxes. It would make it easier'
to figure out what kind of


palace we could afford after all
the road projects are complet-
ed instead of delaying road
projects.
WVe need to focus on the abil-
ity to move about the county
on proper road systems
because the ,Duval and St
John's County. out of control.
development will quickly over-
take whatever improvements
we have for our pending road
.projects in the GJP;
Our City Council has always
had strong representation
from the developer and real
estate Industry which is. proba-
bly why any mention of
impact fees becomes a passing'
remark, despite every other
county, having one to .assist in
proper road building in a time-
ly fashion to match the current
building frenzy in North
Florida. The "fair share" pro-
gram is a sham so we need to
institute impact fees if we're
serious about controlled
growth of our highways, yet
the Council ignores any men-
tion of impact fees which
might slow growth to match,
the ongoing developments.'
Perhaps% we should have. the
real estate industry and devel--
opers build the roads, they cer-
tainly can put up entire neigh-'
borhoods or shopping centers
complete with parking lots and
curbed accesses to our.existing
roads in record .time, before
any nearby road work in the
Greater Jacksonville Plan has
been started.

Affordable housing for middle
income nonexistent at Beaches


To the editor:
From what I've experienced
in looking for a house in the
Beachess, tea 1 have eo say. I
agree" that affordable housing-
for middle income folks is
nonexistent.
I'm a retired teacher and
taught for 31 years to be able
to come live and volunteer at
the beach. After several
months of looking for a small
house with a yard the only
types of folks I see are investors
and rich folk housing.
Investors and real estate
agents find houses to buy
cheaply, do a little cosmetic
work or upgrading, keep the
house for six months, then flip
it for $50,000-S100,000 profit.


It's in the flip that the middle
class (teachers, nurses, police,
and fireman to name a few) get
left -;ehinW d.,, .. --r
.Previous- letters have e.
expressed concern that the
Beaches are losing their mini-
mum wage workers. This area
has, also, lost educated, hard
working folks who chose to
work with people instead of
chasing the almighty dollar. I
never thought I made a poor ,
choice until I started looking
for housing in the area. I'm
going to be a contributor to
the neighborhood and area
where I live...too bad my first-
choice doesn't want me.

Commissioner needs to get a grip

To the editor
Commissioner [Sylvia]
Simmon's comments regarding
the quality of people who live
in the West Atlantic Beach area
and running for a commission
seat are appalling.
Does she think you have 1to
hold a PHD or Masters degree
to hold an' office?'" Mrs.
Simmons, you became a public
servant when you were elected.
Get a grip on your ego, come


back to earth and do your job.
Taxation without representa-
tion is what started the first
revolution. I challenge the
current board of elected offi-
cials to walk our streets' and
meet the people they suppos-
edly represent.

Girls-only trip logistically exhausting


It's always fun to see .some-
one else's version of how
your house should run.
That system, finely tuned over
.the years to ensure that every
one is fed, clean, homework
.done, and to the right place
with the right equipment, is
usually endangered when the

---So-when-theidea rame up--7

fun of skiing, sleeping in; and
eating out against the iritimi-
dating preparation required to
leave our house ahd children
for a few days, and staying
home seemed much easier.
Somehow eight of us decid-
ed to go. Nlany of our hus-
bands urged us to go because
in their world, leaving for 5
days only requires a visit to an
ATM and a packed suitcase,
and thought it would be the
same for us.

hard with stressful jobs to
help provide wonderful lives-
for their families. How they
have the energy to come
home, hear the complaints of
the day, help with homework,
and be soccer coaches is
beyond me, but probably
explains their need for those
hunting or surfing trips they
take with their buddies.
The S.O.S. phone calls we
received could be grouped
into three categories. The pet
category was a standout. One
dad could not understand
why the dog kept having acci-
dents all over the living room.
When pressed for details, he
said that the dog was eating
the usual food, but seemed
unusually hungry because the
food dish kept being found
empty and required constant
refills. Furthermore, Fido
seemed to enjoy the cat's food.
that he could now reach
because the cat's dish had
been moved to the floor in a
moment of practicality.
Another category was the
thrown wrench category. One
parent called a Dad at 8 a.m.
to say that she could not car-
pool to gymnastics as
planned. The fact that she
woke him and his household
up at the time when they


should be leaving for school
did not help. After he had"
worked out getting his three-
year-old to gymnastics on his
own, the school called to say
that his older son was in the
office with a fever. This totally
paralyzed him and we got a
frantic call asking for help as.
we were riding a ski lift The
fact that he had two grandpar-
ents and three aunts within 2
miles of his problem did not
deter him from,thinkitig that
we could do something from
2000 miles away.
Another was the
daughter/clothing category.
'Why in the world is this.
child refusing to get in the car
because I can't find the'shorts
that she usually wears to PE,
on Friday and why won't just
an\ shorts do?"
One final category we all
knew.would be waiting for us
was the "'this is how it should
be done" category. Closets
that had been reorganized and
garages that had been purged
of "all those boxes you have
piled up out there" were
accepted without rancor. We
bit our tongues instead of
explaining the emotional
anguish involved in making a
10-year-old boy hang his
pants in one section of the
closet, and his shirts in anoth-
er. Nor will we complain the
next time we 'need a box to
mail his mother a gift or give
to a child whose project is due
the next morning.
'We had a wonderful trip,
and laughed for 5 days
, straight, mainly at ourselves,
but some at the "disasters"
unfolding at home. Welve
earned a new respect from the
members of our families who
are begging us not to do that
to them again for at least a .
Year. I hope we last that long.


To the editor:
The people of the Beaches
have been most generous in
providing support for agencies
that assist poor families. This
support goes back, certainly,,
long before I became involved
10 plus years ago. All of us; St
Vincent de Paul Society, BEAM
(Beaches Emergency Assistance
Minisity), Catholic Charities,
Community- Presbyterian
Church),; Helping Hands,
Mission House, and a host of
other State and, private agen-
cies and churches have used
the generosity of the Beaches
people to assist the poor. ..
We do that, realizing that'
high, middle and. low-income
families will always be part of..
America. We are very involved
and knowledgeable regarding
low-income housing. Our low-
-income families, including
civilian workers in the Beaches
area and junior grade military
personnel (some in the war
zone/overseas with families
here)-are part of the
American profile. The profile
includes the disabled, children
.in fractured families, elderly


on Social Security, those on SSI
(Supplemental Security
Income) of $603 per month-
living on $7,236 a year!, as well
as many hurricane victims.
Most are taxpayers, voters,
good and decent people--and
all are worthy of "liberty and
justice."
Could/should/will develop-
ers oust the poor from .the
Beaches to create a $200,000-
$500,000 condo community?
We seem to be going' in that
direction. Apartments suitable
for low-income families are
rapidly becoming condos.
Who, in our local govern-
ments, is involved in tackling
this issue? Is this similar to the
-NativeAmerican issue of gen-
erations ago-when they were
driven westward and then
onto reservations? If close-in,,
civilian-Navy enlisted housing'
is reduced, does that reduce
Mayport and the chance for a
carrier? If families leave and
school student population is
reduced, does that effect feder-
al education dollars?'
Most of us do not have the
answer, but governments are


established (and paid) to help
develop answers that are in the
best interests of all our citizens.
Certainly we do have private
groups forming to cope with
this problem. However, all up
and down State Road A1A, the
apartments are coming lown -
now. We all need to get into
this ,and figure 'how we take
care of our low-income l1cal
workers, our military families,
our disadvantaged young and
Sthe elderly.. Yes, business is
business and condos are great
investments, but we also need
some government guidance
and leadership for those 'who
are excluded.
Among the government, the
developers and citizen groups
we have the talent and interest
to solve this. If we define the
problem, study the issues
(quickly), get our experts
involved,. and see what the
alternatives are, we have. a
chance to prevent a real crisis.
We cannot wait any longer.

thanks

to the

Freedom

Car


T rhe American Legion may
I be welcoming legions of
JL: new members, according
to Jerick Johnson. I chatted
February 11, while he visited
Legion Post 316 in Atlantic
Beach.
He's the driver of a new
competitor in NASCAR auto
racing, dubbed, appropriately,
the Freedom Car and num-
bered 76 in honor of the year
1776, that landmark in U.S.
history. Painted red, white,
and blue, the car will be rac-
ing as the result of a unique .
partnership between the
American Legion and Team
Johnson Motorsports. The
Legion'is providing no up-
front money for its sponsor-
ship. Support of the car is
coming from purchase of sou-
venir merchandise; e.g., T-
shirts, hats, clocks, window
stickers. Available items are
shown on the Internet at
www.emblem.legion.org.
Jerick is predicting that the
Legion will benefit by acquir-
ing new members out of the
75 million NASCAR fans, since
many are veterans or would be
otherwise eligible. He himself
is a member of the Sons of the
American Legion. His father,
Jack Johnson, is a former race-
track operator and is the
owner of Team Johnson
Motorsports. Regarding the
sponsorship tie-in, the elder
Johnson has said, "Wartime-
era veterans of all ages have
shown support and enthusi-.
asm for NASCAR as dedicated
fans. Sponsoring #76, The
American Legion Freedom Car,
is our way of saying 'thank
v you' for serving our great,
country and for their contin-
ued support of this great.
American pastime."
Before the Freedom Car pro-
gram began, Jerick had already
established himself promi-
nently among racecar drivers.
When I mentioned reading
about his successes, he con-
firmed it. "I did well. I won
three track championships
back in the Midwest."
One of the sites he compet-
ed at was the Mizzou
Speedway in Missouri, owned
by his dad. When he told me
this, I remarked that the name
sounded Japanese and won-
dered if the Japanese were tak-
ing over car racing, too. He
laughed and pointed out that
the title is an abbreviation for
Missouri. Hey, wadda I know?
I'm originally from New
Joisey. *
Reportedly, the Freedom Car
is quite an expensive and
macho machine, with a 660
horsepower engine and a top
speed of 195 MPH. I got a lit-
tle antsy while waiting at Post
316 for Jerick and his team-
mates to arrive. Hearing
sirens, I was relieved to learn
that the car collision out front
didn't involve his. As a con-
genital worrywart, I asked him
if he needed auto insurance
on it; He laughed again.

Shark: Most attacks on Florida's east coast


i Cont. from A-1
Sn one such case, a surfer
bitten by a great white shark
off the Oregon coast on Dec.
24 had the presence of mind
to drive it away with 'a well-
timed punch. to the nose, he
said.
'That gentleman did pre-
cisely what he should do
under those circumstances,"
Burgess said. "A person who is
under attack should act
aggressively toward the shark
and not follow the advice
given to women Who are ha\v-
ing their purses snatched in
New York City, which is to lie
on the ground, play dead and'
give up the pulse."
Despite the worldwide
decline, the number of attacks,
in the United States rose
slightly, from 30 in 2004 to 38
in 2005. But that is still con-


siderably lower than the
recorded high of 52 in 2000,
he said
The same pattern emerged
in Florida, the U.S. shark
attack capital, where the
number of attacks increased
from 12 to 18 but was still
well below the 2000 record of
37, he said. .
The 2004 numbers were the
lowest in more than a decade,;
.however, and were probably
due to Florida's unusually
active 'hurricane season,
which kept people out of the
water, he said.
The number of shark
attacks at any particular time
depends on a variety of fac-
tors, including oceanographic
and' meteorological condi-
tions, abundance. of prey
'items, and very important,
:the arhount of time people


spend in the water, he said...
"We need to remember
there have been huge changes
in how humans use the water
over the last 20 to 30 years,"
Burgess said. "When our par-
enrts, and grandparents went
into the water, they maybe
wiggled their toes, or if they
were very daring, jumped in
and swam. People of our gen-
eration.are
surfing, diving, sail board-
ing, scuba diving, skin diving,
and engaging in all kinds of
activities.,"
Of this year's four fatalities,'
two were in Australia, one in
the Indo-Pacific island of
Vanuatu and one in the'
United States.
The U.S. attack occurred
June 251 along Florida's Gulf
Coast, when 14-year-old
Jamie Daigle was attacked by


a bull shark while swimming
off Sandestin. It was the
state's first death from a shark
attack in four years. Two days'
later, also in the Florida
Panhandle, 16-year-old Craig
Hutto lost his right leg to a
shark while fishing in waist-
deep water off Cape San Bias'.
Five of the state's 18 shark
attacks last year occurred
along Florida's Gulf Coast,
which is a greater proportion
to the Atlantic coast than pre-
vious years, Burgess said: "It's
unusual' to have only 13
attacks on the state's eastern
coast," he said.
Surfers were the most, fre-
quent victims, accounting for
29 incidents, ,followed by
swimmers and waders, 20,
and divers, four.

GUEST COLUMNIST


Fast connections a,
must in rural areas
Every time I get an e-
mail from my mother, I
am flabbergasted by the
wonder of technology.
My mother used to type
for a living. She loves to
type, and yet, just like most
of us, this computer world
left her and about 400 mil-
lion of the rest of us in a
state of panic.
I still panic, for crying out
loud.
Every morning before I
turn on the computer, I get
on both knees, light a can-
dle and gently run my fin-
gers over the keyboard as a
kind of technology caress
hoping that my computer
will turn back on.
I've taught my mother
how to do this as well, only.
she thinks you have to do
this in order to turn on the
computer. I did not want to
take any chances with' the
computer gods, so OK, I lied,
but at least she can e-mail
me.
Actually, most of the e-
mails I get from my mother
are complaints about things
that pop up on her screen,
don't print, print wrong,
warning signs that a virus
the-size of"a -semi is going to
plough through her comput-
er or a connection that is so
slow she'd be better off ty.p-
ing and mailing a note.
The other day, I drove
over to where they live (they
do have flush toilets, by the
way) to help her update her
virus protection. "'.
This was a two-martini
job. It was also a wake-up
call. Note to self: Never
move into a rural area where:
you cannot get a fast con-
nection,..
The martinis were gin
martinis because this was a
big job. For smaller jobs, like
deleting files of crapola,
helping her open a photo-
graph of yet another place
she will never be able to see,
and notifying a few thou-
sand of the other \irus pro-
tection companies that we
are not going to renew any-
thing, I usually have vodka.
Vodka is for the easy jobs,
and sometimes, when I am
just taking a peek and mak-
ing certain she has enough
candles to light and that'
she'd dusted the computer
properly, I just have a nice
pinot grigio.
Actually getting the com-
puter into the house proves
that modern miracles do
exist., .. .. .
My brothers, sister and I
started suggesting years ago'
that it would be a great way
to see the world if they
couldn't leave home, stay in
contact with friends, and try.
to appear hip.
Six years later, and count-
less trips to the liquor store,
we succeeded, and truth be
told, my mother does pretty
dam well, and-my father is
now at least saying the
word, computer, and he
makes the ice cubes. ,
Actually, I think it was
peer pressure. My mom's
girlfriends were e-mailing
each other, and she didn't
want to miss anything.
Lately, I've been leaving
my cell phone on the table,
right next to the wine bot-
tle, when I visit.
It's a start, don't you
think?
I'd say a cell phone set-up
is worth what? Maybe a 12-
pack of really dark micro-
beer, .

listed math as his favorite sub-

also said he wanted to earn a
degree in architecture.
Camar, who may play
Division III football at
Worchester (Mass.) Poly Tech,
said grades always came first
at Fletcher.
"It was nice to play football
but its always been my goal to
be very good at both," he said
Friday.
"I think it's something that
sets you apart from the rest of
the student body."
Said Barnhill, who plans to
play football at West Point
next fall: "Football has to end,
someday, but it's your grades
that stay with you.'
"What I did, on the football
field won't matter. It's what I -
did in the classroom." ,


Family meals pority with Wilkinsons


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COL U TNIST
Family meals are a priority'
for Dana and Thomrn Wilkinson
of Ponte Vedra Beach.
They believe that sharing
good food and conversation
daily during breakfast and din-
ner contributes to the close-
ness of their family.
The Wilkinsons have more
flexibility in the morning than
most other families have.
Their office commute is less-
than 10 minutes and Thom is
an early riser who starts break-
fast well before his sons head
off to school. '.
The early morning menu
may include homemade pan-
cakes or breakfast quesadillas.
For dinner, it's not unusual for
the entire family, to spend
more than an hour together at
the evening meal. .
To make. this possible with
three active sons, the time that
dinner is served is always
determined by whoever will be
home last.The dinner menu
includes homemade family
.fare and "fun things" that the
boys enjoy, such as Mexican
dishes or Dana's slow cooked
chicken wings.


A J ,

L^-- COOKS

Everyone contributes to the
effort. The parents take care of
the cooking and the boys all
have kitchen, chores and clean-
up duties.
In 'the Wilkinson home,
desserts and baked goods are.
Dana's specialty. Some 'of her
favorite recipes include an ele-
gant Creme Brulee, a simply
delicious chocolate cake, and a
unique Ten to twelve layer
cake.
Danra said her Griddle Cake
is made froril "an old-time
recipe." The 10 to 12 layers of
the cake are baked individually
in a seasoned cast iron skillet
in the oven.
Wilkinson said that no other
type of bakeware will work as
well.Each of the layers bakes
quickly and evenly with the
right amount of crispness on
the edges in the heat-retaining
cast iron skillet.
Wilkinson makes lemon


icing as filling between, each
layer and on' top of the cake.
Other types of icing can also be
used, and years ago homemade
jelly would have been used
instead of icing.
The finished cake is not
beautiful to look at but tastes
delicious, she said. For the past
several years, WVilkinson has
made a Griddle Cake for
Christmas gifts for both ,her
parents and her husband's par-
ents. The cake keeps in the
refrigerator for about a month
and both sets of parents look
forward to enjoying the cake
for several weeks during the
holidays.
Since each layer is& made
individually, it takes several
hours to make Griddle Cakes
with a single skillet. Wilkinson
said that she really appreciated
a Christmas gift of a second
seasoned cast iron skillet from
her mother-in-law who also
has made Griddle Cakes.
The recipe for Chocolate
Chocolate Cake was handed
down to Wilkinson by her
mother and it probably was in
her family farther back than

that, she said.
It would be hard for any
chocolate lover to resist this
soft and. light chocolate cake
made with buttermilk and
topped with fudgy icing. The
cake is mixed easily in a
saucepan and baked in a large
rectangular pan. Then the
icing is cooked until it
becomes like fudge and quick-
ly cooled and beaten to spread-
ing consistency.
Wilkinson serves Crrme
Brulee with fresh strawberries
and blueberries for a colorful
and delicious dessert. The cus-
tard is made in several steps
and the technique produces a
rich and smooth finished
product. Vanilla is one of the
key ingredients and Wilkinson
recommends only using real
vanilla extract and high quali-
ty eggs for the best flavor.
The finished custard is
topped with a layer of brown
sugar which is caramelized
under the broiler to form a
crispy, sweet crust. This is a
good choice for, a dessert for
entertaining or special occa-
sions since the custard can be
made a couple days in advance
and the crust can be made sev-
eral 'hours before serving.

By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCL4TE EDITOR

Joe Barnhill's boyhood dream has
always been to attend the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point.
He wrote about it in his journals grow-
ing up and spent hours researching, the
application process.
In December, he even attended the
famous Army-Navy football game in'
Philadelphia.
Barnhill, a senior at Fletcher High,
hopes to be playing in that storied con-
test next football season.
Last week the Neptune Beach resident
received an official "letter of assurance"
confirming his Congressional appoint-
ment to West Point.
"I have always had an interest in the
military, but it was a mysterious thing for
me growing up because my dad never
talked about it," said Barnhill, whose
father is a Vietnam veteran.
"After I started exploring Army, and all
the pride and tradition that goes with
that school, I said West Point is for me."
Barnhill's father served three tours of
duty in Vietnam with the Army's 10th
Special Forces, and was a rising staff ser-
geant when he left the service after seven
years.
When Joe Barnhill expressed an inter-
est .in the military, his father gave him
this piece of advice: Don't go enlisted.
Get your college education first.
"He's got his career set and his mind set
for the next 20 years," said Joe's father,


Garey.
"He did it all himself. Chose the school
and everything."
Barnhill, a: co-captain on Fletcher's
football team last season and an all-dis-
trict center, said he selected West Point in
part because of its emerging football pro-
gram, now under former NFL head coach
Bobby Ross.



I have always had an inter-
est in the military, but it was a
mysterious thing for me grow-
ing up because my dad never
talked about it. After I started
exploring Army, and all the
pride and tradition that goes
with that school, I said West
Point is for me.
..... ....

Joe Barnhill
Fletcher High senior who has
received a Corgressionaie
appointment to West Point

Army won four of its last five games in
2005 and will play a 12-game schedule
this year that includes nationally tele-


vised visits to Notre Dame and Texas
A&M.
"There's so much paperwork that goes
with West Point," added Barnhill, a
scholar-athlete ranked 23rd in his gradu-
ating class at Fletcher.
"I had to interview and compete with a
number of people in the district to
receive the congressional nomination.
"Everybody there was a captain of their
football team, or top-5 in their class, aca-
demically."
, Barnhill seems destined to succeed at
"The Point." He carries a weighted grade-
point average of 4.4 and has been -virtual-
ly a straight-A student since elementary
school.
He was a three-year starter on Fletcher s
football team, playing both'offense and
defense.
"He will be able to handle it, athletical-
ly and academically," said Fletcher princi-
pal Helene Kirkpatrick.
Added Barnhill's mother, Susan: "We
are real lucky at the Beach to have the
schools we have and the teachers we
have.
"As a parent, I'm very excited, but it
will be hard for mom to saw goodbye on
June 24.'"
All recruited cadet-athletes report to
West Point on R-Day. Football season
begins Saturday, Sept. 2.
"Everybody up there is a type-A person-
ality," said Barnhill, who said "nothing is
worth doing if it's not done right."
"They say it gets a little intense some-
times but they have ways to blow off
steam."


Senators off to a 2-1 softball start


FROM STAFF

Fletcher is off to a 2-1
start this softball season
having earned wins over
Englewood and First Coast
last week but taking a 22-2
pounding at the hands of
Orange Park Monday night.
The season began last
Tuesday with a 13-6 home
victory over Englewood.
Despite cold temperatures
Fletcher's bats were hot in
pounding out 14 hits over
seven innings of play.
Last Thursday, the
Senators erased a 5-0 early-
inning deficit to down First
Coast by a 6-5 count.
Angela Gentry belted her
first home run of the season
and added an RBI double to
help spark Fletcher's
offense.
Jenny Griswold, who
came on in relief of Becky
Frank in the third inning,
earned the win, her second
of the season.
In both games last week


Fletcher's defense was a bit
shaky at times, but head
coach Shanel Lopez said
practices would focus on
tightening up the defense as
well as situational hitting. *
On Monday night, how-
ever, the Senators ran into a
red-hot Raiders team that
put 13 runs on the board in
the second frame of a five-
inning game, Orange Park
scored in each of the first
four innings and smacked
19 hits in the contest.
The Senators, who man-
aged just four hits, scored in
the top of the first and
added one more in the fifth
as Griswold saw her record
drop to 2-1.

ment. One trainer, one private training studio, one

diovascular health, increased flexibility or an
increase in muscle size, we will develop an individ-
ualized training regimen for you."
Fitness Together client Phillis Harrel heartily rec- .
ommends the facility. "If you're looking for a place Owne
to work out that is comfortable, motivating and Nover
results-oriented, this is the place to be!" says Harrel, train
who lives in the Beaches area. "There's no other
place like it at the Beaches or in the entire Jacksonville

vate attention, nutritional support and encouragement
available here."

avoid the dreaded "training plateau" that can lead to stag-
nancy and boredom. "This means you can reach and set
new goals as your body changes and as you lose the
weight and gain strength and flexibility," Greer says.
Fitness Together trainers have earned degrees in health-
related fields and are Nationally certified. "Most impor-
tantly, all of our trainers are 'certified through our compa-
ny so confusing methodologies or movements are not

Engineering degree from Auburn University and worked as
a Process Engineer until he decided to return to school. He
then attended the University of South Carolina and
Vienna School of Economics in Vienna, Austria, where he
earned an International M.B.A. Greer is a former NCAA
athlete and has 10 years of experience as a fitness coach.
"Fitness has always been my passion, and I chose to enter
the field professionally via the Fitness for Life Franchise
Corporation," he explains. "Now I'm combining this pas-
sion with my Engineering and business knowledge to help
people reach their fitness goals-which I find very reward-
ing."
In addition to the one-on-one training concept, Fitness
Together in Ponte Vedra offers its clients proven eating
plans, fun and motivational competitions, monthly
newsletters and, most importantly, the accountability that
only a professional fitness trainer and coach can offer.
"Unlike any. other, our unique system enables Fitness
Together to guarantee results," says Greer, "It gives my
'teaifirand m6 great satisfaction to-see-our cUents change
theirbbdies and lives tortfihe better," he says. "And we look

Whiting in the surf, but big catches from boats


A nglers aboard the
Mayport Princess, with
Captain George Strate,.
scored big on several trips last
week as did a party from
Orlando aboard the Sea
Dancer with Capt. Dennis
.Young.
Both had excellent catches
around A.H. The whiting are
biting in the surf but the big
catches are coming from 35 to
45 feet of water off the redtops
to the desert. If you are in the
surf, cast as far as you can.
Most of the fish this week
were caught out of boats.
On Friday, the Princess
anglers returned with 15 snap-
per, seven mangrove snapper
to 15 pounds, three grouper to


IC critics tabbed this recent
Super Bowl as one of the
most forgettable, so
inept were both the Seattle
Seahawks and Pittsburgh
Steelers. '
How can it be ;"unforget-
table" and "forgetable" at the,
same time?
If the Detroit version of
Mardi Gras was so bad why do
scribes keep writing about it?
Are the officials who worked,
that game really to blame or
was it a combination of both
the Seahavks and Steelers?
Some calls were blown like 'a
boy scout's bugle, true, but the
real culprits were the player
and coaches. The Steelers tried
to give it away in the first half
but the Hawks were too good-
hearted to take it.
Seattle banked heavily on the
running of Shaun, Alexander-
the-great and with good rea-
son. One figures that a player
who led the NFL with 1,880
rushing yards incidentally a

Didn't happen.
The infantry attack' of'
Alexander's was muffled by
only 10 carries in the first half
and 10 more in the
second. Why, in an important

Princess anglers cleaned a
dozen fat snapper to 10
pounds, 10 mangrove, four
grouper and lots of seabass
and beeliners.
Capt. Dennis Young, on the
Sea Dancer with the Allen
Hoops party, pulled up 10
snapper weighing eight to 14
pounds, along with 30
seabass. They were fishing
around the amberjack hole.
'Capt. George Bull Jr. with
his friend Steve Danzig on the
Bionic Bull trolled the creeks
not too far from Nassau Sound
last Friday. They used plastic
artificial and caught 25
speckled trout, three redbass
and a flounder.
Capt. David King, on his
Crusty Crab, fished for whit-
ing last week off the redtops
and Beach Club, and on trips
Wednesday and Thursday
filled his cooler with big whit-
ing.
Mike Tandarich, out of B &
M Bait and Tackle, used min-
nows for bait and caught 11
speckled perch at Hanna Park
on a trip last week.
Buck Gergley, on the
Mayport Princess last Monday,
came home with two grey
grouper to 15 pounds, one
snapper and his limit of bee-
liners,
Capt. Dave Sipler and Rob,
Cook, last Monday, used live
shrimp in the river and caught
five redbass to 22 inches, three
trout and a flounder. On

If Alex was hobbled we

not turn the -controls over to

most winning coaches in the
NFL, so all the blame can't be.
laid on him.
Could be that the real blame
was just that old Super Bowl
jinx, for lack of a better word,
that seems to get teams at the
Big Show. The Steelers' defense
wasn't that awesome.
One wonders what the out-
come would have been if the
Jaguars had somehow managed
to escape the playoffs undefeat-
ed and made.their Super Bowl
debut. Jacksonville had already
beaten both Seattle and
Pittsburgh, so does that make
the Jaguars better after all?
Would Byron Leftwich have
been too much for any oppo-
nent at Detroit?
Incidentally, Alexander had a

James Gergley and Jonothan

tried their luck in the St.

and netted 25 redbass to 24
inches, a pair of trout and a
flounder.
Larry "Fishman' Finch had a
great week on the sheepshead
along the jetties. The Fishman
and, his wife, Murphy,


anchored along the rocks on
\Vednesday .and caught 22
toothy ones. On Thutirsday
morning, Larry and George
Atelevich caught their limit of

Fine sheepshead fishing.

2-0 record against Jack Del Rio's
team until this year, which may
show how much the Jaguars
improved this year. Jacksonville
will start next season as a win-
ner, the fust time that's hap-
pened in six yeais: That means,
a greater number of opponents
will be gunning 'for them.
Maybe next year if the Jaguars
make the playoffs they'll be
more ready for the challenge.
Those who saw -the whole
show in Detroit can pick their
own doubtful call by the men
in stripes, but whether Steelers
QB Ben. Roethlisberger. got
across the plane with his
pinkies for the TD or not,
remember some days the
breaks on calls will be for or
against you depending on what
fate has in store.

The Secret To Great-Looking Drywall Surfaces


Whether you're building a new home
or adding a new room, homeowners
can ensure a top-quality drywall instal-
lation by following a few basic but
very important gypsum board appli-
cations and finishing guidelines.
Installing drywall panels isn't an
overly complex process. The panels are
available in a variety of sizes, with 4- by
8-foot and 4- by 12-foot sheets being
the most commonly used. If you're
doing the work yourself, the smaller 4-
by 8-foot panels are easier to handle.
Drywall panels are most commonly
available in 1/2- and 5/8-inch thick-
nesses. The 1/2-inch panels are ideal for
most wall surfaces, while ceilings gen-
erally require a 5/8-inch thickness to

protect against sagging. Drywall panel
installation techniques are fairly stan-
dard. The real trick to achieving great-
looking results lies in how well the pan-
els are finished.
A poorly finished drywall surface
may show visible "joint banding" or
"photographing" problems. These
terms refer to a noticeable difference in
appearance between the drywall panel
and the-treated joint areas. The prob-
lem stems from the fact that the dry-
wall face paper and the joint com-
pounds used to finish panel joints have
different 1iorosities and textures. That
means that they accept paint different-
ly, and those differences can remain
visible even after the surface has been
painted.
These problems are especially a con-
cern in larger rooms with an abun-
dance of critical lighting (lighting that
strikes wall and ceiling surfaces at an
angle) or when semi-gloss or eggshell
paints are used.
Priming or sealing the drywall surface
prior to painting often doesn't solve
the problem. Conventional primers can
help equalize the texture differences
between the drywall face paper and
treated joints, but they may not equal-
ize the porosity differences. Sealers, on
the other, are typically 'effective at
equalizing porosity differences, but
often do not correct texture variations.
To completely eliminate drywall joint
banding and telegraphing, drywall con-
tractors use a technique called "skim
coating," which involves covering the
entire gypsum board surface with a
thin coat of joint compound. This
process leaves a film thick enough to
fill imperfections in the joint work,
smooth the paper texture and provide a
uniform surface for decorating. After
the skim coat has dried, a high-quality
drywall primer is applied prior to paint-
Whether using a professional or as a
do-it-yourself project, remember that
there are no shortcuts for creating
great-looking gypsum board walls and
ceilings. Each step of the installation
process must be done carefully and cor-
rectly, including board finishing, which
has a major impact on how well the
finished drywall surface will look.
