South Beach


road costs


worrisome


Contractors are
busy at Nocatee,
elsewhere so
few bid on JB job
by LIZA MITCHELL
ST4FF I\'RITER
A much needed road
improvement project in south
Jacksonville Beach will proceed
despite concerns of inflated
construction costs.
The city's Community
Redevelopment Agency
Monday "reluctantly
approved" a revised budget of
$844,748 to keep the project
moving forward.
"I guess with some reluc-
tance I recommend that we go
ahead and provide the addi-
tional funding and let's get it
started," Planning and
Development Director Steve
Lindorff said.
"This is a project that needs
doing for a number of reasons,
the main one of which it will
go a long way toward relieving
the congestion that is experi-
enced out there from time to


time."
City officials face a sense of
urgency because the project is
also closely tied to the Valencia
Condominium project in the
redevelopment district.
"The Marsh Landing/South
Beach Parkway is a vital proj-
ect," Lindorff said in a Feb. 14
memo to agency members.
"Without the proposed project,
.. the intersection is likely to
be rated [level of service El or F
by 2014."
An initial study showed that
the intersection was operating
at a nearly failing level in some
directions and turning move-
ments and the additional trips
from the Valencia
Condominiums and the Target
expansion will worsen condi-
tions if the problems are not
solved, Lindorff said.
The City Council approved
an ordinance to block the
issuance of a building permit
to start construction of the
project until the roadway
improvements were completed
or at least well under way,
Lindorff said.

New JB recreation offices
get first formal funding
by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Monies earmarked last year to complete the first
phase of construction for a new Parks and
Recreation building in Jacksonville Beach were
approved Monday by the city's Community
Redevelopment Agency.
The CRA approved up to $12,100 to develop a
design and cost estimate for the 3,000-square-foot
building at South Beach park near the new fire sta-
tion.
"I think the price that they quoted to the point
that they can deliver us a fixed guaranteed con-


tract to build the building is more than fair at
$11,000," Planning Director Steve Lindorff said. "I
seem to recollect that we paid more than that to
get to the same point with fire station which was
a design/ build project as well."
A committee last month selected the team of C.
Young Construction and Ebert-Norman-Brady
Architects to complete the preliminary design
phase. Lindorff said he estimates completion in 60
to 90 days.
"That will get us to the point where we can
bring this back to the agency with a final cost and
a request that these costs be firmly budgeted
rather than just earmarked," Lindorff said.
The new facility will feature office and storage
space, a conference room, a reception area, lobby
and restrooms.
It will also .be designed to withstand harsh


storm conditions and will be wired to function as
a government facility if City Hall is rendered inop-
erable during a hurricane.
Community activist Jim Overby said he attend-
ed numerous workshops for the design phase for
South Beach Park and reminded agency members
that a skateboard park was among the features
considered for the second phase of the park on
the site of the new administration building.
"A lot of young people at the south end are
very disappointed," Overby said. "I think it is a
shame that so early in their awareness of the
political process these young people are turned
off by the fact that they didn't get what they
thought they were promised."
Lindorff said he believes there is still room at
South Beach park to accommodate a skateboard
park "and I'm in favor of it," he said.


Photsmf td
Members of the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors
(NEFAR) collaborate with the Housing Partnership of
Jacksonville to build one of about 30 wheelchair ramps for disad-
vantaged people in the community. Last Friday a volunteer crew
from the Beaches Council of NEFAR built a wheelchair ramp for
Norman Northrup at the Atlantic Village trailer park off Mayport
Road. Below, Northrup takes a maiden voyage on his new
wheelchair ramp. At left, NEFAR volunteers, front row from left,

Neighborly

chats in AB

to be held

by sectors

Each commissioner to be
responsible for a quadrant

S by JEFFREY MINTON
S ST.-FF WRITER
Atlantic Beach Mayor Don Wolfson is plan-
ning to hold "neighbor to neighbor beachside
chats" between citv commissioners and residents
in various areas of the city to help communica-
tion.
Wolfson said many residents in the city -
mainly those who live west of Mayport Road -
do not feel represented by the City Commission
as all five commissioners reside in one area on
the east side of town. The mayor said Thursday
that the "chats" could be used to help bridge the
geographical gap while the commission decides
whether to move forward with a proposed refer-
endum for district representation.
The plan for the chats, according to Wolfson,
will include dividing the city into four sections
and assigning one current city commissioners to
each of the sections. A commissioner would hold
quarterly meetings in his or her assigned area
to discuss issues unique to that area with resi-
dents. Wolfson said he would attend all of the
meetings and the commissioners would be rotat-
ed to different areas routinely.
"It is important that we hear from those citi-
zens willing to talk with us about ... concerns."
Wolfson has said he wanted to place a referen-
dum on the city's November election ballot to let
voters decide if they want district representation.
Currently, the commission operates using an At-
Large System In which commissioners are elect-
ed to represent the entire city no matter where
they live. In recent years most all of the comnmis-
sioners have come from east of Mayport Road.
But when Wolfson pitched the district voting
referendum at recent strategic planning meet-
ings other commissioners were concerned that
there was not enough time to properly study the
issue in order to place the item on this year's elec-
tion ballot.
."I sensed at the last strategic planning session
that there was a lack of a majority to move to
redistricting at this point," Wolfson said
Thursday, adding that he understands his fellow
commissioners' apprehension and will agree to
allow more time to study the issue. "If it's
going to be done, it's got to be done ,right."


Soccer field space

eyed in Jax Beach
FROM ST4FF
Parents and volunteers of Beaches youth soc-
cer leagues are looking to Jacksonville Beach offi-
cials to help establish a practice space near
Penman Road.
Bruce Rehmer Monday appealed to the City
Council to allow the use of a grassy lot near the
city's existing Parks and Recreation building at
Second Avenue North and Penman Road. He
said the lot is the ideal size for a practice held.
"We have 3,000 to 5,000 Beaches kids playing
soccer on fields that are not regulation size or
meet the needs of the children," he said.
Rehmer said the field needed to be leveled and
sodded to prevent injury and goals and protec-
tive netting would need to be installed to keep
the balls out of restncted areas at the nearby
Coast Guard station.
"[The field] is not an ideal location for a game
situation but it would be a perfect training for
our youth," he said. "It is a safe location and it
adjoins a park where mothers could bring
younger children while their kids are practicing."
The cost to revive the site is estimated at
$6,500 for sodding, installation of two soccer
goals at either end and netting above the fence
on the Coast Guard side and the pump house.
"This would add to the quality of life," Rehmer
said, noting the high volume of soccer players
that come out of Fletcher Middle School and
Fletcher High School.
One exceptional player, a freshman at FHS
who is an all-conference and all-state player,
drives 135 miles to Orlando every weekend to
practice because the facilities are not available in
Jacksonville Beach, Rehmer said.
"1 would like to see those youth have a chance
to practice here," he said.
If approved by the city, Rehmer said many of
the parents have agreed to help maintain the
field and two companies have expressed interest
in installing a sprinkler system.

STAFF WRITER
Fueled by an offer to swap 50
acres of privately owned land
surrounded by the Guana pre-
serve for a high school site in
the Guana, a group of Ponte
Vedra parents are recharged in
their pursuit of the Guana site
for a high school.
The site, however, has been
rejected by the St. Johns-
County School Board, and the
schools superintendent said
this week the same "impedi-
ments" that were present the
last time a swap was discussed
remain today.
"The [School] Board is aware
that the offer has changed,"
Joseph Jloyner, St. Johns
County schools superintend-
ent, said Tuesday.
"However, the impediments
to the opportunity are still
there."
With the School Board
expected soon to select from
two possible sites for a Ponte
Vedra high school, a group
known as the Ponte Vedra High
School Coalition once again is
pushing for the Guana site.
Herb Pevton, owner of Gate
Petroleum, has offered 50 acres
of his pristine land at the end
of Neck Road in exchange for
50 acres of Guana land off
Mickler Road for a high school,
members of the coalition said.
Peyton's land, bordered on
the east by Ponte Vedra Lake
and on the west by the Guana
reserve, has been on a list of
land the state would like to
acquire.
"We learned early on that the
only way for us to acquire the
Guana lands was via a land'
exchange," said Mark Bugby,. a
member of the coalition, which
first pursued a land swap with
Peyton in 2003.
"It was discovered that the
state actually desires his
[Peyton's] land," he said.


In October; 2003, Peyton
offered to give up the develop-
ment rights on 104 acres of his
land in exchange for about 100
acres of Guana land. -along
.Mickler Road for a future high
school.
Peyton's most recent swap.
offer, however, is for some of
the land itself, rather than for
just the development rights,
members of the coalition said.
The Guana, however, is close-
ly guarded by more than one
pntity at the state level.
According to Joyner, Florida
Gov. Jeb Bush wrote a letter in
2003 .td School Board member
.Carla' Wrigfi t. in. response to
Peyton's earlier proposal.
The letter describes the gov-
ernor's constitutional duty to
protect Florida's natural
resources, giving the School
Board the impression that he'
would reject such a land
exchange.
Because ot such "impedi-
nients." Joyner said, the School
Board decided to drop the
Guana land from the list of
potential high school sites in
2004.
And despite the apparently
sweeter deal being offered by
Pevton. the same obstacles that
clouded the original proposal
stand in the way of the new
deal as well, Joyner said.
The two methods for acquir-
ing land in the Guana preserve,
Joyner said, ate to have a bill
OK'd by the Florida Legislature
or to have Bush and his execu-
tive cabinet OK the proposal
directly.
Either way, the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection iDEP) must make a
recommendation, Joyner said,
and the DEP has not been will-
ing to recommend either of
Peyton's proposals.
Nonetheless, Joyner said the
School Board has been "eternal-
ly grateful for Mr. Peyton's
offer."

Joyner has said the School
Board should. choose a Ponte
Vedra high school site this
spring.
The two sites being consid-
ered are a 30-acre parcel off
State Road AiA behind Talbots
and a 75-acre site east of Davis
Park off County Road 210 west
of the Intracoastal Waterway.
Meanwhile, the Ponte Vedra
High School Coalition is work-
ing to meet with Bush and his
cabinet to discuss Peyton's pro-
posal.
The coalition has scheduled
two public meetings tonight

offer and to rally support for
their efforts..
The meetings will be held in

Roads: Contractors busy so costs rise


Cont. from A-i
But the planning staff revised
the ordinance to allow staff to
issue the permits but withhold
the certificate of. occupancy
because "we felt it wasn't fair to
let them sit dead in the water,"
Lindorff said.
"I would urge you to keep this
project moving so there is as lit-
tle overlap as possible between
the time Valencia is actually
occupied and this project is
completed," resident Jim
Overby said.
"\Ve are going to have more
and I more neighbors at the
south end and that intersection
is going to get worse and
worse."
The original $494,403 budget
approved last September was
based on a cost estimate provid-
ed by the engineering firm
Edwards & Kelcey, Inc.
By December, the engineer's
estimate had increased slightly
but the bids submitted were
$273,550 over the amount orig-
inalUy budgeted by the CRA.
"\Ve only got two bids which
I regret to say is becoming the
norm. We are hearing that these
people have lots of work. Their
capacity is maxed out and they
are not really looking for work,"
Lindorff said.
"One thing that has been
mentioned is the start of con-
struction of the roads and utili-
ties in Nocatee has changed
things in this industry quite a
bit."
The agency unanimously
/ approved the funding increase
available from the city's South
Beach tax increment funds but
not without some grumbling
from its members.
"I am not happy with this at
all. Since when is a 50 percent
increase acceptable?" agency
member James Bomhard said
prior to the meeting. "These
people are supposed to know
what the hell they' are doing."
Bomhard said he noted about
15 items included in the esti-
mate that came in significantly


higher in the bid packages.
The engineer estimated, for
.example, that the, cost of an
overhead cantilever sign at
approximately $22,000 but the
bids indicate a cost between
$48,000 and $57,000, Bomhard
said.
Project Manager Paul Vetter of
Edwards & Kelcey said the rising
cost of materials coupled with
the rise. In major construction
projects contributed to the
overblown budget.
"Contractors are busy which
reflects prices by having to fit
projects within "their schedule,"
Vetter said, noting the sign esti-
mate was based on 'Department
of Transportation standard pric-
ing.
"Our company has done a
number of cost estimates and
this was reviewed by myself and
others and we felt for. this proj-
ect it was a good price. Evidently
the contractors feel that with
the market the way It is that it
wasn't."
Also, he said,' a single item
will be more expensive than
purchasing several of the same
item because the cost decreases
with multiple items.
Bornhard said heis concerned
that the city may weigh too
much on cost estimates provid-
ed by a firm "that is supposed to
know these things" when the
figures do not represent the
actual costs.
"Quite frankly, what I am
concerned about do they know
what they are doing. or is the
taxpayer getting reamed by the
company? Are they taking an
excessive amount cf profit from
us? Are we paying $250,000 for
the fact that there is another
project going on someplace? In
order for us to get this done, we
have to pay $250,000 more than
the project is worth?"
Vetter said it is not just one
project but rather several major
construction projects that
impacted the cost of these
improvements. Many compa-
nies did not submit bids, Vetter


said, because of the size of the
project or conflicting schedules
with other projects.
Lindorff said the CRA may
look into removing some of the
preliminary tasks such as site
clearing from the contract and
completing them in house to
shave off some of the costs.
"We have what we have and
we have to work with it;" CRA
chairman Ray Fisher said.
The developers of the 245-
unit Valencia Condominiums,
Paradise Key subdivision, and
Target will contribute a propor-
tionate amount toward the total
costs.
Lindorff said the percentage
was based on the contribution
of the project to the traffic in
the design year 2014. The total
percentage is $30,000 to
$35,000 and is less than 10 per-
.cent of the construction cost, he
said, which was based on the
original estimate.
The city will reassess the
developers for the additional
costs.
The scope of the project
includes the construction of an
additional left turn lane with a
protected traffic signal phase
that will stop oncoming traffic
at the green light at Marsh
Landing Parkway where traffic
frequently backs up.
A new signal will be added at
South Beach Parkway and
Sanctuary Parkway, which will
be converted westbound into a
one way passage.
Eastbound traffic will be able
to go to Jacksonville Drive to
head north or south on South
Beach Parkway, Vetter said.
The existing crosswalk on
South Beach Parkway at
Sanctuary Parkway will be elim-
inated but new ones will be
added across all four directions
at the Marsh Land and South
Beach Parkway intersections.
A sidewalk will also be added
on the east side of South Beach
Parkway, extending north of
Jacksonville Drive.

Peyton offer too


good to reject


To the editor:
Almost 30 years ago, when I
became an Eagle Scout, I learned
to be a good citizen and to
develop a strong appreciation
for nature and our environ-
ment. When I earned my
degree in zoology, I studied the
fragile life-ecosystems m the
estuaries and marshes of North
Florida. I strongly
support our legislature's
efforts in preserving sensitive
wetlands for future generations.
[ am a charter member of
Friends of Guana River
Management and I am against
the thought of development
within these lands.
But the offer made by Mr.
Herb Peyton' cannot be ignored.
In the big picture of conserving
these lands, the offer of adding
50 acres that sit on Lake Ponte
Vedra as part of the old Outpost
to the Preserve is outstanding
and most generous.
The land along Mickler Road
that was identified by the High
School Site Search Committee
in 1999, as the most desirable
location for a high school in
Ponte Vedra Beach consists
mostly of.scrub pine. This area
is less environmentally sensitive
than the property that most
Ponte Vedra homes
have been built on. I would
encourage anyone who has any
questions about this land to
examine; this for themselves.
You may prefer to wear some
old shoes or boots. The newv
Publix shopping center is just to
the west of this site. The
Outpost property on the other
hand is in need of
preservation from develop-
ment as these wetlands are sen-'
sitive to the whole Guana
Preserve. It.is in the best inter-
est of our future to secure these
lands. Aerial photos show how
Mr. Peyton's land is more inline
with the Preserve .than the
AMickler Road site. '"
*1 \


It would be wrong for our
elected officials to ignore this
extremely generous offer. As cit-
izens, we own this property.
How can we pass up an offer to
obtain an additional 50 acres of
environmentally sensitive lands
in exchange for building a high
school that is desperately need-
ed. This is a win-win situation
for Ponte Vedra, for elected offi-
cials, for environmentalists, and
especially for future generations
to lite in our community.
I currently have two children
who are scheduled to graduate
from Nease High School before
a Ponte Vedra Beach High
School will ever be completed.
I have been very happy with
the education they are receiv-
ing, but I know a high school
within our community will
ignite even greater parental
involvement and lead to the
successful education for our area
children.
As alternatives, the proposed
Davis Park high school site will
have to be shared with the
Nocatee community until we, as
county taxpayers, fund a new
site within their limits. The
Talbots site should be used only
as a last resort due to the limited
space and the traffic impact.
As citizens in Ponte Vedra
Beach, we must act now to be
assured that this land exchange
takes place. Be sure to weigh
the facts and let the school
board know how important this
is to our future. This is a legal
land exchange that would qual-
ify on its merit under current
statutes.
I would like to send a scout
salute to Mr. Herb Peyton for
being more than generous by
offering these sensitive wetlands
bordering the Guana Preserve in
exchange for the, pine uplands
along Mickler road. How can
we in good conscience say no?

Bad dog owners need to learn


To the editor:
I am writing in response to
the gentleman who wrote to
comment on alpha dogs.
Unfortunately, -his comments
seemed to come from the expe-
rience of letting dogs loose in a
famtlike setting. And although
-I totally agree with his com-
ments regarding the pack men-
tality of dogs, I fear that people
will read this, and assume that
the alpha dog situation can be
dangerous.
As the Fletcher High School
Community Education Dog
Trainer for the past 15 years (I
am the founder of the class), a
dog trainer in general for the
past 31 years, dog training
instructor ,at the U.S. Army
Education Centerin Fort Bragg,
N.C., and a decorated Scout Dog
_handler from the Vietnam War,
I do believe that my input here
is needed. To simply label some
dogs "alpha" does not benefit
the dog at all. In fact, this can
label a dog as a "problem",
when the real problem here is
lack of people training.,


I call myself a dog trainer, but
what I really do is teach people
to be the alpha dog of their
pack, in their home. When peo-
pie .quit believing that their
dog; knows that they are a
human, and begin immediately
to see things on the very basic
level of a pack leader, then they
become the alpha dog, and the
supposed alpha dog then real-
izes his true place, and his alpha
behavior then goes away. The
current state of affairs with dogs
is disturbing, and it may one
day lead to only having a dog if
you personally pass some stupid
test or something. This can be
stopped when we stop blaming
the dog.
So just like when we send
someone to driving school for
driving badly, perhaps we need
to send humans to dog training
school when they have a prob-
lem "with being a good dog
owner.

Things could be, worse


Once upon a time, the
Hasidic story goes, a
poor man went to a
wise rabbi with a complaint.
"I'm going crazy," the man
said. "I'm living in a small
house with my wife, six chil-
dren and my mother-in-law,
and there's no room to move.
I'm going to have a nervous
breakdown."
The rabbi thought for a
minute and said, "Do you
have any animals?"
"Yes," the man said, "I have
a goat and some chickens."
"Good," the rabbi said, "I
want you to bring the goat
and chickens into the house."
A week later, the man
returned and told the rabbi,
"Rabbi, Rabbi, things are
worse now. It's terrible in my
house. What can I do?"
The rabbi said, "Go home
and take the goat and'the
chickens out of your house."
.fu hef xt ..xt p 1 ,tt, ,m ma
c'Sn to the rabbiarid said,
"Oh, Rabbi, everything is so
much better now. You are the
wisest man in the world."
Things could be worse,
couldn't they? For example:
-- Many years ago I inter-
viewed a man who had chick-
ens inside his house. An occa-
sional pig or two wandered
in, too, I recall. He had at

least one dog and no telling
how many cats. I wanted my
wife to see the place, but she
refused to go inside. I just
knew if she saw inside, she'd
never complain again about
all the newspapers scattered
around my easy chair. Things
could be worse.
-- I remember the time
only-Ill.e mdrketihg.- people'
called our- houseoevery r-ight
at suppertime. They usually
called from India. But I see a
new trend coming: recorded
sales pitches. I don't like
being rude to a real live per-
son, but I have no trouble
hanging up on a steel-cold
recorder. Things could be
worse.
-- If you tell your kinfolks


up North that you like boiled
squash and onions, make sure
you specify "yellow squash."
For nearly a year, I was forced
to eat boiled butternut squash
in Massachusetts because I
failed to specify. Southerners,
you see, will eat something
they really don't like just to
avoid offending the person
who cooked it. So if you don't
like what's on the table, eat a
little of it anyway. Things
could be worse.
-- If you've ever done some-
thing stupid, as I have many
times publicly, too don't
beat yourself up too much.
Just think of the man who
put his new Winnebago on
cruise control and then
stepped into the back to fix a
cup of coffee. When the
Winnebago wrecked, he sued
the company for not telling
him the vehicle wouldn't
steer itself down the highway.

Things could be a lot worse,

More letters to the editor:


Mickler's site makes sense


To the editor:
New Mickler Site exchange
proposal is a "rwin-win" for
environmental concerns and
east of the Intracoastal high
school site proponents alike!
How? Herb Peyton's newly
announced exchange proposal
demonstrates how a private
land owner can donate high
value, natural resource land to
achieve a two fold public ben-
efit; public protection of desir-
able natural resource land, and
.land for a public school at no
cost to county taxpayers. State
and Federal agencies have
made Mr. Peyton's Outpost
land a "high priority acquisi-
tion," to deter development
along the shores of Lake Ponte
Vedra and to provide addition-
al upland buffers to the Guana
River. His offer achieves these
stated conservation objectives
at no cost to federal, state or
county agencies. The no cost
benefit is achieved because Mr.
Pevton is willing to give up his
valuable land for the benefit of
the children of Ponte Vedra
Beach and Palm Valley. He
believes the best place for the
new high school is in the pine
plantation area along NMickler
Road, behind the new Publix
shopping center. His generosi-
ty creates a "win" for conserva-
tion and a "win" for public
education in our community.
State and local opposition
claimed that the state wasn't
getting anything by Mr.
Peyton offering just his devel-
opment-rights, which was the
basis of the original proposal


in 2003. Mr. Peyton has mod-
ified his proposal, which now
offers to deed 50 acres (fee-
title) of his land to the state in
exchange for 50 acres, along
Nlickler Road, for the high
school. That means total pub-
lic access to the land he is giv-
ing up..
Governor Bush has NEVER
said no to any of Mr. Peyton's
exchange proposals The let-
ter that everybody suggests he
said "no" to was written to
School Board member Carla
Wright, in January 2003. That
was long before either
exchange was proposed. At
.that time, what Governor Bush
did say was that he should
uphold his Constitutional
directive, "...to conserve and
protect our natural resources
and scenic beauty." His
approval of Mr. Peyton's latest

exchange proposal will be do
precisely that.
Most of Mr. Peyton's 104-
acre Outpost property consists
of rare vegetative, natural
resource communities, which
makes it desirable for conserva-
tion. Additionally, it has
approximately 4,400 feet of
shoreline at the western edge
of Lake Ponte Vedra (Guana
River. The state is highly
motivated to prevent future
development along the Guana
River. The problem is, state
agencies don't have the finan-
cial resources to acquire land
that is also extremely valuable
for development. The state
rarely pays more than $5000
per acre for conservation land.
Today's Ponte Vedra Beach real
estate land values are consider-
ably higher, so it is unlikely the
state could ever acquire the
Outpost by a fee-simple trans-
action. Mr. Peyton's proposal
makes his land available to the
State via an alternative to fee-
simple acquisition, which is
what the state Legislature
encourages state agencies to
do. Also, his proposal is a clear
demonstration of the
Legislature's directive that
encourages the development
of creative partnerships
between governmental agen-
cies and private landowners.
Using these recently endorsed
methods of land acquisition,
the State achieves its own con-
servation objectives at no cost.

Ponte Vedra Beach


Global warming is caus-
ing sea levels to rise as
much as 3 feet a year,
according to a recent broad-
cast on scientists paid by the
government to watch the
thermometer and issue dire
warnings.
The alarming increase in sea
levels is enough to give pause
to those of us who live along
the coastline.
I'm not ready to start pack-
ing or building an ark, howev-
er.
Given that I live 15 blocks
from the ocean, I know I'm
not likely to find waves lap-
ping at my doorstep any time
soon.
Besides, the conclusion of a
1988 EPA-funded report offers
some hope to even the worst
worry-warts.
The only hitch is that we're
all going to have to embrace
growth and its attendant
soaring property values.
Renourishment of the shore-
line in Tlorida and elsewhere is
a proven albeit expensive -
mechanism to stabilize the,
coast- ahd keep coastal proper-
ty safe and dry, notes the 1988
report, "National assessment of
beach renourishment require-
ments-associated with acceler-
ated sea level rise".
The report details that
renourishment costs will triple
nationwide between 2000 and
2020, given the sand that will
be needed to build up shore-
lines against rising sea levels.
For everyone who has cursed
the congestion while driving
along Third Street recently or
wondered whether we really
need another condominium
on the oceanfront, the report
has a gem of solace.
The report makes it clear
that the enormous value of
coastal property makes it likely
that coastlines in densely
developed areas will continue
to be renourished to fight back
advancing waters.
"It is safe to assume that the
densely developed areas will
be nourished and maintained.
What is unclear is at what
point moderate-density areas,
will be forced by economic
considerations to choose
another approach (e.g., retreat
from the eroding beach)," the
report states.
In other words, the smaller
a coastal community's tax
base, the less likely it is that
renourishment funding will be
a priority.
The 1988 report notes that
Miami Beach with its $1 bil-
lion in coastal property values
is a sure thing for renourish-
ment funding.
For the record, at the three
Beach municipalities, the tax
base rose from $3.46 billion to
$4.02 billion between 2004
and 2005.
Guess that makes us a sure
thing.
No taxing authority wants
to find billions of taxable
property slip-sliding away into
the sea; so I guess I don't have
to worry too much right now
about the oceanfront moving
westward.
Now we just have to worry
about how to pay for all the
renourishment that will be
needed in the future. .

Jax mayor

poised for


Beaches'

questions

FROM STAFF

In response to requests from
Beaches residents, Jacksonville
Mayor John Peyton will host his '
first Beaches Town Hall Meeting
on Thursday, March 2, his staff
said this week.
Residents of Jacksonville
Beach, Neptune Beach and'
Atlantic Beach are invited to the
Meeting, which will be held in
the Council Chambers of
Jacksonville Beach City Hall, 11
N. 3rd St., Jacksonville Beach,
from 7 8:30 p.m.
The meeting will provide an
opportunity for Beaches resi-
dents to ask Peyton questions
about government services and
' other matters that affect their
quality of life.
"The City of Jacksonville
enjoys a good relationship with
the Beaches governments and I
look forward to hearing first-
hand from residents how we can
work together to serve them bet-
ter," said Peyton. "The town hall
meetings I have held in loca-
tions around Jacksonville have
been invaluable, letting me
know what's really important to
people and ensuring that resi-
dents',issues are addressed."
Peyton has hosted town hall
meetings nearly every other
month since the beginning of
his administration. At each
meeting, the mayor takes ques-
tions from attendees and asks
city officials to address citizens'
more specific issues following
the meeting.
On average, about 110 resi-
dents attend the meetings,
which are traditionally held in
school auditoriums and other
community facilities. Questions
from the audience range from
code enforcement and drainage
to trash collection and trans-
portation, Peyton's staff said.
The March 2 meeting is open
to all county residents, not just
those living at the Beaches. For
more information, 'call Lorrie
DeFrank, Jacksonville's Chief of
Neighborhood Services
Division, at'(904) 630-7386 or
via e-mail at Idefrank@'coj.net


This, Lindorff said, will enable
the CRA to determine the scope
of the work and establish a
price. The study will take six to
eight weeks to complete and the
final cost estimate will be
brought back before the agency
for approval.
Prosser Hallock, Inc., the city's
landscape architect,will com-
plete the project in two phases.
A detailed site survey and
input from the merchants will
be used to develop the parame-
ters of the project which will
include on-street parking, light-
ing, the..Jnstallation of.,tratfic'
calming devices, sidewalks- andr
crosswalks and decorative


pavers.
Benches, trash receptacles,
bollards, tree gates and planters
are also being considered as
added enhancements to the
area.
City officials'agreed to consid-
er the project after the business
owners sought relief for their
customers. The area is not well
lit and many of 'the shops are
open or would like to remain
open into the evening hours,
merchants said.
"We appreciate you looking
into this," said Ann Eastlack, the
owner, ioiI, Sugarfoot Antiques.
"'We have a high volume of fdot
traffic in the area."

Astronomy ambassador



Beaches native 'loves to share the universe'


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
There aren't an infinite number of
jobs for astronomers.
Dr. Mike Reynolds, however, has
made the most o! his job prospects.
The Beaches native and 1972 Fletcher
High School graduate has been a NASA
spokesperson, a planetarium director, a
space and science museum founder,
and an astronomical expedition leader.
He has also authored five books on
astronomy and in 2002 received the so-
called "Nobel Prize" for amateur astron-
omy, the G. Bruce Blair Medal.
"There are more astronomers than
there are jobs to go around," said
Reynolds, a Jacksonville Beach
resident and a former sci-
ence teacher at .
Fletcher High.
"You have to .
have a great .
math back- *
ground. "
It's not '

Top-10 celestial sights
Twenty years after he was chosen as
Florida's Teacher of the Year and as a
finalist for NASA's Teacher in Space
Program, Reynolds, 51, is still doing
what he loves best: Sharing the space
sciences with students and amateur
stargazers.
Recently appointed associate dean for
math and natural sciences at Florida
Community College's Kent Campus,
Reynolds was the guest speaker at
Saturday's Northeast Florida
Astronomical Society's Urban Star Party
at Hanna Park.
Reynolds said a total solar eclipse
tops his top-10 list of astronomical
sights.
"It's the most awesome, unforgettable
event," Reynolds told about 50 people
who attended his free lecture at the
Hanna Park campground.
"I've seen 14 of them. There's anoth-
er one coming up in March."
Reynolds has also witnessed two
meteor showers, and once led an astro-
nomical expedition to Antarctica,
where his team found what they

Christmas..., ,.T, -.
"I could see the moon and a couple
of stars with it," said Reynolds, who
built his own telescope in the ninth
grade at Fletcher, placing fourth in the
state science fair.
"I grew up in the Sputnik era. In my
day, you had to learn the sky by using
star charts. Now they have telescopes
with GPS."
In Reynolds' top-10 list of celestial
objects, the Ring Nebula comes in at
No. 10, meteor showers are No. 9,
occultation, or eclipse of a smaller
object by a larger object, is No. 8, fol-
lowed by the Great Orion Nebula at
No. 7.
Comets, planets, the Milky Way, the
moon and the Andromeda Galaxy
round out the list.
"I love observing the moon. I contin-
ue to discover more and more things,"
Reynolds said Saturday.
"The Andromeda Galaxy represents
how vast space, really is."
Teacher in Space finalist
Reynolds was named the state's
Teacher of the Year in 1985 while chair-
ing the science department at Fletcher.


He was also a national finalist for
NASA's Teacher in Space Program. The
honor went to New Hampshire's
Christa McAuliffe, who died in the
Challenger explosion 20 years ago last
month.
Reynolds said he did about "1,000
speeches" around the state after the
Challenger disaster as a Christa
McAuliffe Ambassador for Education.
After the two-year NASA assignment,
Reynolds served as director of the
Alexander Brest Planetarium at the
Jacksonville Museum of Science and
History.
He left MOSH in 1991 to pursue what
he called "an iffy" proposition as. the
inaugural executive director of the
Chabot Space & Science Center in
Oakland, Calif.
"I didn't know if I would have a job
after the first three years," said
Reynolds, who helped raise money and
design the $76-million science muse-
um, which broke ground in 1996 and
opened in August 2000.
The museum's rooftop observatory is
named in his honor.
After 13 years in the Bay area,
Reyi0olds returned to Jacksonville in
2004, taking up where he left off as a
t teacher of natural sciences.
Despite his new status as an asso-
ciate dean. at FCCJ, Reynolds still
teaches basic astronomy, intro-
ducing a new generation of stu-
.dents to the wonders of the 6ni-
verse.
i "I have always loved the edu-
I national aspects of astronomy,"
,said Reynolds, who earned a
Ph.D. in science education from
the University of Florida in 1990.
"I still hear from my Fletcher stu-
dents all the time. I never tried to make
astronomers out of them. "
As.'a senior at Fletcher, Reynolds was
an assistant director of an amateur

the Northeast Fldrida Astronomical
Society, which holds public viewing

host a "Dark Sky Observing Session"
Saturday at Osceola National Forest
near Lake City.

Thanks his lucky stars
Last Saturday at Hanna, Reynolds
signed copies of his latest book,
"Binocular Stargazing," a guide for
both the novice and experienced
stargazer.
"I have a number of telescopes, yet I
always carry a pair of binoculars with
me regardless of my observing plans,"
Reynolds writes in the book, which he
dedicated to his wife, Debbie, whom he
met in band class at Fletcher in the
11th grade.
"Objects are easier to find with a

U.S. Army chaplain Father John Quinn prepares to give com-
munion to a soldier aboard a Blackhawk helicopter in Iraq.


Army chaplain from Ponte

Vedra going extra mile in Iraq


father John Quinn of
Ponte Vedia Beach has
only been stationed in
Iraq for the past two months
but he has already drawn
praise from one of his com-
manding officers.
In an e-mail to friends and
family of "the Gambler
Guns," an aviation regiment
with the 4th Infantry
Division, Lt. Col. John E.
,Novalis II said Quinn's-recenL
l,9g0 re.. to serve ma; 4 n 6 -
UH-60 helicopter "'touched
him profoundly."
"Chaplain Quinn was fly-
ing to serve mass to one of
the outlying forward observa-
tion bases when a soldier
climbed aboard [that] had
not seen a priest for months
and asked the good father for
a blessing," the e-mail said.
"[Quinn] did one better [by
serving communion en route
to the base]. This type of
compassion for our soldiers is
a daily occurrence."
In a recent e-mail to his
parents, Jack and Kay Quinn
of Ponte Vedra Beach, Father
Quinn said, "I've done com-
munion services in tents,
hospitals, aid stations and
Humvees. I come prepared. I
pulled out my Ciborium of
consecrated hosts, and
prayed over the roar of the

Quinn, a 52-year-old Jesuit
priest who graduated from
Army Chaplain School in
April 2005, is assigned to the
4th ID's 4th Baitalion, 4th
Aviation Regiment.
Quinn's father, a retired
brigadier general, command-
ed a 4th ID unit in Vietnam.
Father Quinn's division,
based in Fort Hood, Texas,
arrived in Iraq in late
December, replacing the
Army's 3rd Infantry Division.
The 4th ID will serve from 12
to 14 months overseas.
A former enlisted Marine,
Father Quinn was sworn in as
an Army chaplain in
December 2004, at a ceremo-
ny at Fleet Landing. He is on
a three-year tour of duty with
the Army's chaplain corps.

He gave away bride, and baked cake W "


bby KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
S ome fathers give away
the bride and tradition-
ally pay for the wedding.
John Bernard of Ponte
Vedra Beach did all of the
above and baked the wed-
ding cake, too.
Bernard started decorating
birthday cakes for his three
' daughters more than 20
years ago. He also baked and
decorated four-tier wedding
cakes for two of his daugh-
ters, most recently in March
2002.
A retired Navy veteran for-
merly stationed at Mayport,
Bernard has created cakes for
wedding receptions, parties,
and special events at
Rawlings Elementary School
in Ponte Vedra, where he is
in charge of maintenance
services.
Lately, Bernard has put less
of his time in the kitchen in
cake decorating but contin-
ues to cook and bake other,
types of special occasion
desserts.
A Hammond, La., native,
Bernard started cooking with
his mother when he was
only 6 years old.
Linda Bernard describes
her husband as a really great
cook. ,, .


Recipes from Louisiana
remain a favorite for
Bernard, who said that there
are as many Gumbo and
Jambalaya recipes as there
are cooks who make them.
Several years ago he' met
the late Cajun cookbook
author Justin Wilson at a
local bookstore. He found
out they had some Louisiana
friends in common.
Wilson called gumbo a
poor man's soup that makes
use of whatever is in the
refrigerator., '
Gumbo Ala Bernard
includes chicken, sausage,
crabmeat, shrimp, vegeta-
bles, tomatoes, and cayenne
pepper.
Bernard's mother and
grandmother made had their
own recipes for Jambalaya .
Bernard's version is made
with chicken and sausage
and only a moderate amount
of heat.
Fried Wontons may not fit
into the Louisiana specialty
. category but Bernard said he


has make them for his
daughters who helped in ,the
kitchen.
After spooning the filling
and folding the wrappers,
the individual wontons are
fried until crispy and golden
brown. Serve these with any
favorite sweet and sour
sauce.
One of Bernard's favorite
desserts is French Silk
Chocolate Pie. The chocolate
filling tastes smooth and
rich like silk. Bernard has
made this recipe for years
using the traditional raw
eggs with no problem.
Pasteurized eggs are available
for those who prefer to sub-
stitute them in the recipe.

The following are some of:
John Bernard's recipes.

Gumbo Ala Bernard

S1 frying chicken

3 links smoked sausage,
cut into one inch pieces
S large onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 stalk celery, chopped

Reynolds

Cont. from A-8
Mike Raimirez, president of
the local astronomy club,
told attendees at Saturday's
lecture that he owns 12 tele-
scopes, yet does "90 percent"
of his stargazing with binoc-
ulars.
"You can see a heck of a lot
with a 7x50 pair of binocu-
lars for less than $50," said
Reynolds, adding that even a
cheap pair of binoculars is
more powerful than what
Galileo used to observe the
moon in .1609.
In his spare time, Reynolds
is co-authoring a college text-
book on astronomy.
He also wants members of
the Jacksonville City Council
to "catch his vision" for a
public observatory in Duval
County.
And he thanlks his lucky
stars that he still has a job in
astronomy.
"Since May 1961, when my
first grade teacher at San
Pablo Elementary rolled a TV
set into the classroom so we
could watch Alan Shepard
launch into space, I was
hooked," Reynolds recalled.
"I love sharing the beauty
of the universe. I just love
looking up."

skillet and fry okra until dry,
stirring occasionally. Add
tomatoes and simmer for at
least 15 minutes. Turn into
gumbo pot. Add all other
ingredients except file. Cook
for at least one hour, adding
water as needed. Stir in file
right before serving over hot
fluffy rice. Serves 6 to 8.

priolo sucm'ni-a
John Bernard made this four-
tier wedding cake for his
daughter Bonnie in March
2002. ,


The mixture should be
soupy; the rice will absorb
the liquid. Stir every few
minutes so that it does not
stick to the bottom of the
pot. Medium heat is best. If
sticking occurs, remove from
heat for a few minutes, then
continue. Jambalaya is done
when rice is cooked, about
30 minutes.

with water and fold in half
diagonally ior any way you
want over filling to form an
envelope. Moisten two outer
points and fold toward cen-
ter, overlapping slightly.

JVC slate

set, but

season

in doubt

By CHUCK ADAMS
SPORTS WRITER
While this summer's Jack-
sonville Volleyball Club sched-
ule has been set, officials warn
that without more member par-
ticipation the event s might not
take place.
Angie Armstrong, a Jackson-
ville resident and club presi-
dent for the past six years, told
members recently she plans to
step down after this season -
but said Monday someone has
expressed interest in taking
over the JVC program right
away.
Jay Miller, a former club
member who ran Coors Lite
volleyball tournaments in the
Jacksonville area for a number
of years, may take charge of the
JVC program this year instead
of next. A club meeting sched-
uled for March 11 may provide
the answer.
"I am sorry my time has
come to an end," said
Armstrong, "but I feel [my hus-
band] Dan and I have brought
the club up to a great level -
and I would love for it to stay
that way and even get bigger.
"But remember," she added,
"the club is not lust for tourna-
ments. If there is no club, there
would be very few nets at the
beach."
If all goes forward as planned
the upcoming schedule inclu-
des the following events, all of
which will be held on th4
beachfront at the Comfort Inrn
and Holiday Inn at Ist Street
North and 16th Avenue North
in Jacksonville Beach:
*April 22-23, JVC,
Membership Tournament
*May 20-21, Mike Highsmitl
NMemorial Tournament ,
*June 24-25, Ocean Wavej
Summer Blast
*July 22-23, World Gynr
Summer Blast
*August 19-20, Smoothie
King Summer Blast
Before Miller expressed inter-,
est, Armstrong wasn't sure anyi
one would take on the leader
ship role alone. She had made
plans to set up several teams o4
committees to split up the job.;

When you walk in to the
Floors By Design store, the first
thing you see are samples of
the "best of the best" floor cov-
erings imaginable including
fine carpets, natural stone,
porcelain tile, hardwood floors
and ceramic tile. Then, as you
continue walking you see sam-
ples of ceramic wall tiles,
Raywall kitchens and baths,
and Hunter Douglas window
treatments. !By the time you
reach the office and design area
in the back of the store, you
understand that the key word
in the Floors By Design name is
"design."
This is not your ordinary
flooring and carpeting display
showroom. Floors By Design,
which has served the Beaches
for more than 10 years, is
"designed" to help you with all
of your remodeling, renova-
tion and new-construction
needs. Owner Keith Zipper car-
ries on a family tradition in the
flooring and decorating busi-
ness dating back to 1954. The
business, originally known as
Carpet and Vinyl World, con-
tinues to offer top-quality
products at competitive prices.

For 10 years Keith Zipper, owner of Floors By Design, has offered one of the largest selec-
tions of flooring products, window fashions and decorating services in the Jacksonville
area. Pictured above from the left is Karin Demme, Flooring Designer; Keith Zipper,
:Owner; Shelley Dickerson, Design Consultant; and Ron Caruso, Sales Specialist


What makes the customer's experience at Floors By
Design different is the hand-holding and follow-through,
says Keith. "We understand how stressful remodeling, ren-
ovation and new construction can be, so we work hard to
ease stress."
"We hold hands, offer advice and are honest in fact,
we're not afraid to tell you if we think something looks
ugly," he says with a smile. "I doubt there is any other store
in the Jacksonville area that holds as many hands as we
do," says Keith.
The Floors By Design staff members agree. In addition to
Keith, they include design consultants Shelley Dickerson
and Ron Caruso and designer Karin Demme. Shelley enjoys
working with people and helping customers see their deco-
rating ideas come to life. Karin's 15-plus years of experience
as a professional designer allow her to envision and fulfill
customers' needs. Keith and Ron have the installation and
hands-on expertise to oversee every project from beginning
to end and to ensure quality control on and off site. "For all
of us, the project isn't done until the customer is satisfied,"
says Keith..
Keith, Shelley, Karin and Ron make one of the most expe-
rienced and creative remodeling and decorating teams in
the area. "Each of us excels in certain areas, so we throw all
of o6iir different .talints't6gether iand male eer project
work," says Keith. "We know how.to work with color, con-
trast, fabrics, flooring, counters, fixtures, window treat-
ments and even furniture arrangement to complete a
design scheme," he adds. "It's amazing how dressing up just
a few minor details can make such a difference no mat-
ter if you've got a big or small budget or if you're updating
one window treatment or an entire house."';
Taking care of those details is what Floors By Design is all
about. "We all work hard very, very hard and love every
minute of it," says Karin, "but that's because we take the
time to understand what the customer is trying to achieve
in their home and sell products that will meet their expec-

stations and not ours."
Whether you're shopping for materials for one room or
for the entire home, Floors by Design can help. Keith and
the staff will coordinate flooring materials and window
fashions to enhance what you already have or to create a
completely new look.
Floors by Design carries only the "best of the best" prod-
uct lines. Flooring products include ceramic tile (including
Crossville porcelain), carpet (featuring Shaw and Mohawk
brands), vinyl (Armstrong) and wood flooring (including
Harris-Tarkett, recently voted "Best Overall Wood Flooring
Manufacturer""). Window fashions from Hunter Douglas
include wood blinds, silhouettes, luminettes and woven
wood blinds. Also available are Raywall Cabinets for bath-
room remodeling and kitchen renovations including gran-
ite counter tops, Silestone, Corian and Staron. Ceramic tile
countertops, backsplashes, walls and showers are also a spe-
cialty.
Floors by Design makes it easy to have the new look
you've been wanting in your home or office. Customers are
welcome to borrow samples to see the products at home.
In-store financing is also available, with 90-day and six
months same as cash.
"At Floors By Design we have the largest style selection at
the Beaches," explains Keith. "We continue to grow and
add new product'llnes. We invite'.cif to.browse our show-
room in a friendly atmosphere with no sales pressure. My
business philosophy is to treat the customer honestly,
which is a win-win situation for everyone. Floors by Design
is a one-stop design center emphasizing service, not sales -
we're designed that way."
Floors By Design is located at 592 Marsh Landing Parkway
near Target in the Southbeach Parkway Shopping Center in
Jacksonville Beach. The showroom is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For

Sheepshead heat up in timer 'ElCheapo
*~~~ ~ tn for '. ~ 'l '* heapo


B oth sheepshead and
whiting were hot last
week just in time for the
very popular "El Cheapo"
Sheepshead Tournament on
Saturday.
Tournament director Frank
Joura requests all entries to be
at the Captains meeting on
Friday at 7:30 p.m. For ques-
tions about the tournament
call 241-0777.
Capt. Mike Morris tried the
jetties on Thursday and had
no trouble catching his limit
of sheepshead weighing up to
eight pounds.
James Gergley, Matt
Hamilton and their friend
Sam, put their fiddlers in the
rocks on Monday for a little
sheepshead practice session.
They caught 22 fish weighing
up to 8.5 pounds.
Larry "Fishman" Finch was
spotted anchored along the
jetties last Monday and
Tuesday mornings. He caught
his limit of sheepshead each
morning.
On Thursday morning, the
"Fishman" took George
Atelevich to the rocks for the
toothy ones. They sacked up
their limit of 30 once again
with the fish weighihg up to
eight pounds.
Capt. Kirk Waltz and Chris
Huff on Kirk's "Enterprise" last


WIMPY SUTTON
FISHING LEADER


Wednesday spent the morning
along the jetties. They caught
11 sheepshead and a pair ot
reds preparing for the
Saturday tournament.
Capt. Bob Ulrich and his
wife Sarah on their "B.S.165"
tried the bottom fishing about
10 miles off St. Augustine last
week. They started off catch-
ing lots of seabass and beelin-
ers and ended the morning
with an 18.5-pound snapper.
Capt. David King was surely
the "King" of the whiting fish-
ing last week. Fishing off P.V.
from his "Crusty Crab" with
his friend Soniny Ponce, David
caught coolers full of whiting
for three straight days.
Jacksonville Beach Pier fish-
ing picked up considerably


over the weekend. As the wind
and current picked up on
Saturday and Sunday the
whiting started biting.
Phillip Grossman caught 35
whiting. Steve Gale cleaned 40
whiting and James McCall left
the pier with 65 whiting.
Hundreds of whiting were
brought off the pier on
Sunday. Bluefish, drum and
yellow-mouth are beginning to
appear from under the pier.
Capt. George Strate, on his
"Mayport Princess" with a full
boat of anglers, made good
use of last week's spring-like
weather. Each afternoon they
returned to Mayport with
coolers filled with snapper,
grouper, seabass and beeliners.
On Wednesday aboard the
"Princess," Matt Hamilton
happily showed 'his two 17-
pound grouper and 21-pound
snapper. Jonathan Moran
cleaned a nine-pound snapper
and every angler seemed to
really enjoy the trips.
Capt. George Bull Jr. and
fishing buddy Steve Danzig
trolled the canal and creeks
near Nassau Sound last Friday
for 15 trout, 10 redbass, two
drum and a flounder. All were
caught from George's "Bionic
Bull."
See you at the "El Cheapo"
Sheepshead Tournament.
Good fishing.


This week's history picture features Gene (left) and Eddie Smith with a great catch of redbass
they made in the 1970s. Of course, now you can keep only one.


Questions remain over Johnson's



Daytona 500 victory on Sunday


A s this is penned, the
question remains about
the 2006 Daytona 500
and driver Jimmie Johnson -
izzy or izzint he?

And why not Jeff Gordon?
He was the defending 500

ters loading their bats (Oh,
surely they don't really do
that!) What's a little cheating
amongst., friends?
But the 2006 Daytona 500
winner stands as a new kind of
champion unless a recount is


demanded by the Democrats.
In a way it was a refreshing
change even if the new
champ looks as though he's
never had a chaw of tobacco in
his young life. Bet Johnson
doesn't even have a pick-up.
ALABAMA-TENNESSEE
RIVALRY RENEWED ,
'Because it wasn't football,
Alabama's 92-79 basketball
upset of Tennessee on
Saturday may not have gotten
the uproar it deserved, but it
was a ring-dinger for the Tide.
The Alabama-Tennessee
rivalry has always been one of
the best in the south, but in
basketball even an upset over
the Volunteers doesn't result
in mass celebration. Beating
the hated Knoxville gang in
football ,especially when
coached by arch-villain Phil
Fulmer is cause for calling
out the riot squad.
Sometimes that rabid media
around Birmingham might get
a bit carried away, but it's to
be expected. In Alabama, like


Green Bay, there's not a whole
lot to get excited about except
football and the fans, which
means virtually everybody
from the cradle to the grave,
can be pardoned for their exu-
berance.
On occasion, one of their
more vociferous sports critics
might make a statement to
---doviirde ll'ie Tjir fri tG ft it
' doesn'tt fool'ariyofe. R&E'etly
one of them shrugged off
Auburn's recruiting by saying
that the Tigers aren't really
Bama's most important foe,
Tennessee is.
That would have come as
great news to Bama's Bear
Bryant and Auburn's Ralph
(Shug) Jordan, who spent
years trying to whip each
other.
Truth is, everybody is
Alabama's hottest foe when
they play. How many times
have coaches of the past been
heard to say, "We'd rather beat
Florida (or Georgia or Florida
State) than anybody"?
Rivalries in sports are great.
It's what pays the bills.
