AB to spend

grant money

outside city

by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
The city of Atlantic Beach is
using $50,000 of its Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG) this year to help a
Habitat for Humanity affordable
housing project outside the city
limits.
City Manager Jim Hanson at
Monday's City Commission
meeting,said the money will go
toward the city installing water
and sewer utilities for the project
located along Dutton Island
Road. .Athough that area is
located .just outside the city's
boundaries in Jacksonville, the
city provides water and sewer to
the residents in the area. It also
has an Atlantic Beach postal
address.
Hanson said that city expects
to have a balance of $80,000
from CDBG funds after other
projects in the city are complet-
ed.
He said the city had intended
for the money to go toward city-
mandated septic tank to city
sewer conversions for low
income residents. But, he said,
there were not many takers of
the city's offer to fund 100 per-
cent of the conversion costs -
upwards of $3.000.
He said many of the people
are choosing to wait until the
2011 deadline to convert.
"The bottom line' is we just
don't have that many people
willing to convert," Hanson
said. "We expect to have
$80,000 in [CDBG funds]. And it
needs to be spent. This appears
to us to be the best way we can
spend it this year and contribute
to affordable housing."
Beaches Habitat for Humanity
Director Ralph Marcello said
that 10 to 12 low-income
dwelling units are planned.


JB cops to


use video


cameras

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Highly advanced security cameras will soon be installed
to keep a closer eye on high crime areas in Jacksonville
Beach.
City Manager George Forbes Thursday said surveillance
cameras with high resolution visibility will be mounted in
spots such as the pier parking lot, oceanfront park, por-
tions of the seawalk and other locations that attract a
large volumes of traffic.
"The pier lot is always a hot spot," he said. "We know
we can control that lot, we are half way home in
patrolling the downtown area."
The idea was broached about two years ago as the
downtown business district became more of a destination
point, drawing thousands of visitors to the area every year
in addition to the city's rapidly growing population.
Jacksonville Beach police Sgt. Tom Bingham said
Tuesday that the project will be funded using approxi-
mately $100,000 in county grant monies.
"The bottom line is a series of cameras will be mounted
throughout the city in public areas with high volumes of
people," Forbes said. "We are working on it right now."
Locations were selected based both on the crowd con-
centration and the criminal activity generated in a partic-
ular area.

Staffer's relationship with


developer worries AB mayor


Mayor cites as
a reason to
alter city code

by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
Atlantic Beach Mayor Don
Wolfson says that the city's
community development
director dating a prominent
local developer raises a "seri-
ous concern" and is one of
the reasons he wants to take
away the dity staff's authority
to approve single lot divi-
sions.
And Wolfson said he would


like to squash a notion circu-
lating in the community that
he and fellow commissioners
are considering the change to
give themselves more power.
Rather, he says that removing
the administrative single lot
division would take the deci-
sion away from a single staff
member and bring it into a
public forum, thus allowing
for better "checks and bal-
ances."
Wolfson said he would like
to see requests for single lot
divisions go before the city's
citizen-based Community
Development Board for a rec-
ommendation to the City


Commission.
But whether or not the
commission would then have
the ultimate power to
approve or deny the request
is up for debate amongst city
officials.
Wolfson's comments came
at the end of Monday's com-
mission meeting where he
outlined the reasons he wants
the administrate single lot
division removed from the
city code.
He said that Community
Development Director Sonya
Doerr has informed him that

State rejects lifeguard station application


FROM STAFF
A proposed expansion to the American
Red Cross Lifesaving Station in
lacksonville Beach was temporarily halt-
ed because the permit application was
incomplete.
The Department of En\ironmental
Protection in a March 2 letter notified
city officials the application would need
to be resubmitted because it was missing


a detailed site plan showing the location
of the proposed structure.
The application must also include
information about exterior lighting, lines
of existing vegetation, location and vol-
ume of any proposed excavation or fill
and a cross section view of the support
structure beneath the building.
Mayor Fland Sharp noted at the June
21. 2005 City Council meeting that the


Corps executive board planned to wait
for authorization from the DEP before
moving ahead with a full set of architec-
tural plans, estimated at $5,000.-
Steve Auld, vice president of the
Lifesaving Corps, detailed to the City
Council in June, 2005 the plans to add a
storage facility up to 18 feet wide on a
northern sliver of property to house
equipment.


The property was conveyed in 1946
from the city to construct the present
lifeguard station at the foot of Beach
Boulevard. The 85 x 65 parcel of land
must be used as a lifesaving facility or
the property reverts back to the city.
To proceed with the project, the
Corps must obtain the required state
permit to build seaward of the Coastal
Construction Line.

Immam Zaid Malik from the Islamic Center of Northeast Florida and FHS Media
Specialist Laura Strickland lead a booktalk at Fletcher High School Monday. The book
"Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood" by Marjane Satrapi is an award-winning graphic
novel about the author's life as a 10-year-old girl living in Iran during the Islamic
Revolution in the late 1970's. Students asked questions about the book and Islamic cul-
ture. Malik answered student questions as they discussed the book to help them better
understand Islam.


Police will step

up patrols at

Huguenot Park

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A popular tennis facility in
South Jacksonville Beach recently
sustained approximately $600 in
damage allegedly caused by teens
skateboarding in the area.
Huguenot Tennis Center pro
Jim Watford filed the complaint
March 12 after two new benches
installed as part of $57,422 in
improvements were broken.
The tennis facility at 216 16th
Ave. S. recently received a num-
ber of upgrades, including a


revamped pro shop, new practice
backboard and flower bed wall.
According to a police report,
wax commonly used by skate-
boarders to enable them to slide
on top of a wall was found atop
the new garden wall.
Liquid nail glue was also used
to fix a piece of metal to the wall
for grinding. The wall was recent-
ly stuccoed and primed for paint-
ing.
Cost to repair the wall is esti-
mated at $500. The benches will
cost $100 to replace, the report
said.
Watford told police that a
group of teenagers have caused
continuous problems by skating
in the area. The teens were asked
to leave by a group of citizens
playing tennis and caused a dis-
turbance by yelling profanities at


them.
The improvements were part of
a city' campaign to improve all, of
its recreational facilities. City
officials hoped that the work
would boost service levels for
tennis patrons.
The existing pro shop was relo-
cated to the covered patio on the
south side of the facility to offer
a better view of the courts, more
accessible restroom facilities and
a lounge area.
A new backboard was installed
to provide a practice area for
beginners without disrupting reg-
ular play on the courts. The back-
board was positioned west of the
tennis courts adjacent to the
pond and along 3rd St. S.
Police will step up patrol in the
area and Watford will continue to
report any disturbances.

"They are both interrelat-
ed," Forbes said.
The system is not a preven-
tative measure that is guaran-
teed to stop crime but ,Forbes
said the project will help
police detectives identify and
apprehend .perpetrators
caught on tape.
"It may not stop the crime
from happening but if some-
thing does go wrong it creates
an archive that police can
monitor," he said. "Simply, it
provides more security' and
better prevents problems."
Warmer weather 'always
draws more people, including
transients, out to the Beaches.
Forbes said the program is not
necessarily geared to monitor
the city's homeless population
but it will serve to aid the
downtown CAPE patrol and
the Community Response
Team who regularly conduct
sweeps throughout the down-
town area, where transients
are a common sight.
"It is not just transients that
S create problems," he said.
Forbes said the CAPE patrol:
recently identified seven new
transients that just arrived in
the area and were cited for
violating the city's no camp-
ing ordinance that prohibits
sleeping on the beach or in a
vehicle from '16th Avenue
South and 20th Avenue North
between the hours of 11 p.m.
and 6 a.m.
'-Jacksonville Beach police
relies on paper trails to moni-
S tor transient violations and
contact cards are issued to
help the department keep
track. -
S 'It creates a unique problem
for us, especially for our
police department," Forbes
said. "The cameras will help
us keep on top of this and
help us do a much better job
in keeping people safe."
Forbes said specially trained
police officers will monitor
the locations from the station
on Penman Road. Officers will
also be able to access the spe-
S cific locations in specially-
equipped squad cars.
Police officers will undergo
extensive training 'to ''ernn
how to operate the system
which is expected to be up
and running in the next few
months, he said.

Mayor: Replats not up to staff


Cont. from ,A-
she is "dating one of the foremost developers in
this community." Doerr was not in attendance at
the meeting.
Wolfson Tuesday in a telephone interview said
that Doerr's relationship with the developer "rais-
es a serious concern," adding that such circum-
stances "could lend itself to abuse" in regards to
administrative lot divisions.
Doerr said in a telephone interview Tuesday
that she is the city staff member who is charged
with the decision whether to approve a request for
a single lot division although she said that deci-
sion could rest with any staff member, such as the
city manager or city attorney.
"I can see if this [decision to administratively
approve single lot divisions] rests with one person
there is room for abuse," Wolfson said during the
telephone interMiew.
Doerr Tuesday said she took issue that Wolfsen
'.bought up her personal life in a public meeting.
Also, Doerr said she feels Volfson's' comments at
the meeting unjustly question her integrity in her
job with the city.
"Why is my personal life being discussed [at a
commission meeting]?" Doerr said.
"There's an insinuation [by WVolfson] against
my integrity that I find almost slanderous."
Wolfson said Tuesday that when he learned of
Doerr's relationship he requested that she also
inform other commissioners and city officials -
something he said Doerr did not do.
Wolfson said he thought it "very necessary"
that Doerr have "dialogue" with other city offi-
cials including Community Development Board
members about her relationship with the devel-
oper.
"She did not communicate it [the relation-
ship]," Wolfson said. "I've been polite. I've been
keeping my mouth shut."
"[And] My reason for going public is because I
was concerned. I do not represent Ms. Doerr. I do
not represent the city manager. I represent the cit-
izens of Atlantic Beach," Wolfson said.
Doerr said that City Manager Jim Hanson did'
inform other city commissioners about the rela-
tionship last fall. She said it is not customary for
city staff to inform commissioners on city-related
issues, but rather for Hanson to do so.
Hanson said Tuesday that Dderr told him last
fall about the relationship and he relieved her
immediately of any responsibilities involving the
developer and the city.
"She did everything she was supposed to do,"
Hanson said.
Doerr Tuesday said that there is no reason for
concern because the city's criteria for administra-
tive single lot divisions is very clear and leaves no
room for abuse.
Currently the city code allows city staff to
administratively approve a single-division of land
as long as each of the lots meets all other require-
ments of the Land Development Regulations arid
the state Comprehensive Plan.
"It's very black and white thing," she said,
adding that either a property qualifies for the divi-
sion or it does not.


"We've turned down as many as
approved," Doerr said.
Doerr said that all the requests for sin
divisions that have been approved ha\
made by individual property owners no
opers.
"They were just lucky enough to have
property [to allow for the division]," she s
But Wolfson says there are other reason


rid of the administrative approval.
He said there are other issues such as neighbors'
concerns that need to be considered when
approving lot divisions.
Wolfson said the neighbors need a venue to
voice their thoughts on the requested division.
"It doesn't make since for staff to have the only
say in a subdivision," Wolfson said Tuesday.
"I believe it should rest among a group that has
an open forum."
And he said the city Community Development
Board is just that forum.
"The development board is key here," he said.
Wolfson said that there is a "misunderstanding"
among some residents that commissioners are try-
ing to give themselves more power by removing
the administrative lot divisions.
"This is something that the citizens have mis-
understood. Never, ever, has the commission said
that it wants the only say in this," Wolfson said.
Wolfson said he attributes the misunderstand-
ing to a Dec. 12 staff report by Doerr which pro-
poses a change to the city's land development reg-
ulations removing administrative approval of sin-
gle lot divisions and requiring "approval by the
City Commission."
"I'm not in favor of that. I'm opposed to it,"
Wolfson said of the commission having the lone
say in single lot divisions.
He said that Doerr was not present at a Nov. 28
commission meeting where commissioners
requested that staff bring back proposed legisla-
tion for the removal of administrative lot divi-
sions. And he said that the city staff incorrectly
perceived that request as the commission wanting
to have the final say on the lot divisions.
According to the minutes of that Nov. 28 meet-
ing, City Commissioner Dezmond Waters "asked
staff to bring back language" for a proposal to
remove administrative lot subdivisions.
SThe issues of lot division arose when a resident
late last year requested she be allowed to divide
her large parcel in the Selva Marina neighborhood
into three separate lots.
Wolfson said that sending the request through
the city Community Development Board is a vital
step in keeping with "checks and balances."
However, in most instances, that board only'
issues recommendations to the commission,
which then has the ultimate decision on develop-
ment issues, said Doerr.
She said the only time the board has the final
decision is for zoning variances.
And even then, if a decision by the board.is
appealed, the commission is tasked with examin-
ing the board's decision, and reversing it if a mis-
take has been made, she said.


High school coalition


pushes for Guana land


by LAURA FOWLER
bJy STAFF WRITER
Lines are being drawn in the
sand as members of the Ponte
Vedra High School Coalition
continue to seek support for a
high' school in the Guana
reserve.
The St. Johns County Civic
Asspciation-lRoundtable voted
Monday morning to oppose
Herb Peyton's offer to exchange
50 acres of his Outpost property
at the end of Neck Road for 50
acres in the Guana for the
school..
Later on that day, the-Board
of Trustees for the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD) voted to support the
swap. ..
"It's a wonderful benefit to
the community," said Mack
McCuller, an MSD trustee and
an environmental lawyer at
Smith, Hulsey & Busey,
HARDING Tacksonville.
t'I MSD trustees voted unani-
here mously to support the swap at
a fund the request of Cavce Runisev, a
member of the high school
iguars coalition who said the Marsh
endent Landing Homeowners
school Association also voted to sup-
S port the exchange. ..
Ponte Vedra Beaches

Cowan, on the other hand, is
S Opposed to the deal, though she
said she doesn't know where
the rest of the coalition stands.
"I think conservation land is
a folk. such a precious commodity;,
Tackle here's no-sense in. messing.
uegras with it,".Cowan said Tuesday.

c m X\Villiams said Pevton was told
m/> or about the application process in
April 2005 during a meeting
between him and DEP officials.
Rumsey said his group is try-
ing to schedule a meeting with
the DEP no later than next
'we've week in order to convince the
department of the value of
ngle lot Pevton's offer.
*e been The DEP refused to support
)t devel- Peyton's original offer, which
was to exchange the develop-
enough ment rights for 100 acres of his
aid. Outpost property for 100 acres
is to get


in the Guana for a school.
The DEP has also indicated
that it would not recommend
Peyton's new offer to deed the
land, according to School Board
Chair Bill Fehling of Ponte
Vedra Beach, who has indicated
his support for the Guana site.
The Ponte Vedra High School
Coalition, working against a
deadline of April or May, has
been actively soliciting support
from the community.
At community events, volun-
teers have been handing out
fliers titled, "Help keep Ponte
Vedra High School in Ponte
Vedra" and directing people to
an online petition.
The Tallahassee-based lobby-
ing firm Fiorentino and
Associates has agreed to lobby
the DEP.for,the exchange with-
out being compensated for
Their work, according to
Rumsey.
And another anonymous
,supporter has paid for 20,000
mailers to be sent out today to
Ponte Vedra homes, Rumsey
said.
The group's online petition
has grown in length, reaching
more than 2,500 signatures,
according to Marc Bugbey with
the high school coalition.
St. Johns County schools
superintendent Joseph Jo-ner
has said the School Board will
vote on the site for a Ponte
SVedra high school in April or
May.
The only two sites being con-
sidered, Joyner has said, are a
30-acre parcel behind Talbots
off State Road Al1A and a 75-
acre site offered as a donation
east of Davis Park, about one


mile west of the Intracoastal
Waterway.
Although high school coali-
tion members have said
Peyton's offer is motivated only
by his desire to help Ponte
Vedra, one St. Johns County
commissioner has a different
view.
Commissioner Ben Rich said
he believes the offer is part of a
bigger quest for private inter-
ests to attain the 4-mile stretch
of beach just south of Ponte
Vedra that is part of the Guana
Tolomato Matanzas National
Estuarine Research Reserve.
"I smell the rat in this deal,"
Rich said in a telephone inter-
view Tuesday. "It is allabout
money."
Rich said allowing the land
exchange could force the
National. Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration to
cut its funding for the GTM
reserve.
If that happens, Rich said,
developers might offer their
help to the state to make up for
the loss of federal dollars, and
he said he believes they would
ask to purchase the beachfront
land..
"I think ultimately the
beachfront is the prize," Rich
said..
No meeting with the DEP
had been, scheduled as of
Tuesday, according to Bugbey.
Rumsey said Monday that if
the high school coalition is
unable to convince the DEP to
recommend the deal, then the
group will attempt to meet
with Gov. Jeb Bush and his
Cabinet.

The Leader's Opinion


Cameras aim


to deter crime

After numerous reports of fights, car vandalism 'and
other problems in the parking lot that adjoins the
Jacksonville Beach pier, city officials are investing in sur-
veillance cameras;.
The cameras will be placed at the pier parking lot, the
oceanfront park at. 6th Avenlue South and other areas
w here criminals have preyed noncitizens.
The cameras, which will be monitored by. police, are
being installed to curb crime in the areas. ,
Other communities have considered installing similar.
cameras'in public areas where crime is a problem and the
invasion of privacy has, in the past, seemed tob high a
price to pay.
Unfortunately, the incidence of crime .has made the
cameras a tool that the police need to deploy to keepcit-
izens safe.
'We all want our parks to be safe havens for children ,
and others seeking a little recreation. It is a sad commen-
tary that such monitoring is necessary.
We would encourage those doing the monitoring to do
so specifically to stop criminal activity and not embrace
the limitless possibilities that such Big Brother technolo-
gy affords to violate individual privacy.

We are optimistic that, with
the widespread support we are
receiving,,. we will finally be
able to positively present Mr.
Peyton's offer to the DEP and
ultimately to Governor Bush.
We believe Jeb Bush to be a for-
ward thinking and: reasonable
Governor. Like thousands of
Ponte Vedrans have over the
last two weeks, we are hopeful
that he too, will embrace this
proposal.:
We also understand how
important the support of our
local official base is to our
effort's success. Our
Superintendent, Dr.Joyner and
our School Board representa-
tives must stand behind our
effort when we present this to
the Governor. Dr. Joyner and
our very own Ponte Vedia dis-
trict Board representative /
School Board Chairman Bill
Tehling, have both endorsed
our efforts. We are actively try-
ing to get before as many local
groups and organizations as
possible over the next five
weeks. We encourage any
;.grop that is interested,in, a
presentation to contact one of,
us via the pvhsc.com website
or by phone at 716-3684. Ln
the meantime, anyone with
interest in learnirig the details
of the proposal may.do so at

you understand it, please join

Ponte Vedra High School
Coalition


To the editor;


' The Ponte Vedra High
School Coalition was founded
in 2003. Its sole purpose was
and still is to help secure a
high school for Ponte Vedra
children within our communi-
ty. The recent land offer by
local benefactor Herb Peyton,
founder of Gate Petroleum, has
le-energized oui: efforts and
given us real hope for success.
S As principal members: of the
Coalition, we feel -it important
to cleaj up any confusion there
may be regarding Nir. Peyton's
offer and give Ponte Vedrans
an update on our efforts.
Mr P'-ton's offer is simple:


neighbors on February 22,
turned into two presentations
in front of almost 200.people.
Both: evenings were heavily
covered by the media, and the
reaction to our presentations
was extremely encouraging.
Several environmentalists,
including at least one promi-
nent member of the Sierra
Club, asked questions at the
presentations and offered sup-
port and encouragement. The
reaction at those first presenta-
tions, and at every presenta-
tion since, has been over-
whelmingly positive. We are
absolutely convinced that
once our citizens have a clear
understanding of this propos-
al, the overwhelming majority
will embrace it.
Since our initial presentation
February 22nd, we have been
humbled by the outpouring of
support offered by business
owners, local benefactors, par-
ents, grandparents and neigh-
bors from throughout our
community. Many of Ponte
Vedra's most active and
involved citizens have pledged
to help in any .way they.can,.
\We have handed out tflers at
soccer games, ball fields and
school carnivals. The response
we have received has been at
least 20:1 in support of the
proposal. In less than two
weeks, we have had over 2,000
of our citizens sign our online
petition at PVHSC.com. Our
efforts also attracted the atten-
tion of a prominent local lob-
bying firm that is now assist-
ing us pro bono. Several local.
benefactors have offered finan-
cial assistance because they,
too, believe in our mission.
Countless other citizens have
joined the effort to contribute
their time, expertise and

quickly as possible. With

was unattractive. The dis- timeline was short. So, what

A coalition was formed

Don't let bullies have their way


To the editor:
I am writing in regards to the
Ponte Vedra High School.
Coalition's ;
PV'HSC. efforts to have the
.lickler Road site reconsidered
for. our much needed, Ponte
Vedra High School in Ponte
Vedra not at Davis Park in
Nocatee. By. now, you have
heard all of the arguments for
this proposal so I won't bore
you with information that you
have heard ad nauseam.
What concerns me is that.
there is a unique opportunity'
that is going to be missed
because of the objections of a
vocal and intransigent minori-'

All of us understand the
need to protect our open,
spaces. I believe that is' why
this proposal has not been
vocally opposed in the papers-
by the larger environmental
groups that come to. mind,
such as the Audubon Society
and the Sierra Club.
My plea to the school board
is that we don't miss this
unique opportunity to, locally
embrace the efforts of our very


own residents that include par-
ents, children, environmental-
ists, and philanthropists
among others. As our local
elected school officials, you
should be proactively support-
ing the efforts of this local
coalition to have Tallahassee
revisit this site for the greater
good of our community. So
far, your comment has been
"let us\ know what they say'"
instead of standing behind the
effort with some form of for-
mal written support.
The beauty of this new pro-
posal is that the vast majority '
of these different groups are
willing to compromise in an
effort to achieve many differ-
eit
desired benefits that will
enhance the lives of many in'
this community. Mr.Peyton
gives up land and potentially
even development rights to his
land so that a High School can'
be built for the community'
that he loves. Pragmatic envi-
lonmentalists, the State and its
residents gain highly coveted'
land in exchange for less.envi-
ronmentally sensitive land.,


Best yet, it's all done at no cost!
Yes, there will always be
those that say no; they will say
it the loudest, and they will say
it in 'the most threatening
manner. As elected school
board members, you, are
charged with the task of coun-
tering the threat that bullies
pose. to .children in our
schools. All I ask is that you
not only take note of all those
who are in support of this
transaction, but' that you also
take note of those who aren't
saying no. Signal your support
of-this community's efforts in
writing to the State to give this
proposal the faith hearing that
it deserves. My fear is that,
without a signal from you, this
unique experience in cross
cooperation will be 'lost forev-
er. There is a group that wants
to derail this process and
extinguish any debate before it
begins. This opportunity now
lies squarely in your hands.
Please don't let the bullies
have their way!

School site important now,

and for future of Ponte Vedra


To the editor:
A proper high school site is
yery important, now, and for
the future of Ponte Vedra.
Many of us are not experts on
all matters, so often we use our
own research plub the views of
those with whom we have
great confidence. Admiral Bill
Smedberg, a member of the
original HS site selection
group, is a man whom I-respect


and in.whom I have great con-
fidence on this matter. I.agree
with him: that Guana is the
best site, and,' with Herb
Peyton's generous offer to
exchange his better wildlife
site for a wildlife site restricted
by Mickler Road, Neck Road,
and the Publix shopping cen-
ter, it is the most feasible.
One of the.arguments for the
site west of the Intercoastal is


Davis Park. Well, Davis Park is
a public area, and will not nec-
essarily. be dedicated to the
new PVHS.. We need to keep
the Guana site on the table
and convince the school board
and the Governor that it is best
for students and wildlife. We
need the county commission-
ers to help in.this matter. ,

If Bill Carter were looking
for a:job, imagine his
resume:
Secret Service agent: Served
under Presidents Kennedy and
Johnson; stood sentry at
Kennedy's grave.
Investigator: Served on the
NWarren Commission following
the -assassination of President
Kennedy; interviewed Lee
Harvey Oswald's widow,
Marina, and Oswald's killer,
Jack Ruby.
Criminal lawyer: Defended
some pretty rough dudes.
Entertainment lawyer:
Negotiated a deal with the U.S.
government to allow the
Rolling Stones to entertain in
the United States in 1975;
hired by former Teamsters boss
Jimmy Hoffa; managed such
stars as Tanya Tucker, Rodney
Crowell and Reba McEntire;
produces TV show for
Christian music greats Bill and
Gloria Gaither.
Persuader: Bullied a Mexican
undertaker into releasing the
body of actor Steve McQueen,
who died in Mexico of a heart
-attatk following surgery.
SThese are just a few ofnBilly
Neal Carter's job experiences.
He has documented them all
in his new book, "Get Carter:
Backstage in History from JFK's
Assassination to. The Rolling
Stones" (Fine's Creek
Publishing, $29.951. But when
I asked him in a telephone
conversation what he wants to .
be remembered for, he didn't,
mention his tough negofia-,
tions or his work with famous
and infamous people. He
wants to be remembered as the
executive producer of the Billy
Graham documentary he just
completed.
"1 think that documentary
will certainly outlive me and
probably my children and
grandchildren," Carter, 70,
said. "He iGraham) is going to
go down as one of the great
spiritual leaders of all time."
He indicated that the very
people who yelled "Get Carter"
to come and help probably
couldn't get Carter today. He's
a changed man. "The person I
am now," he said in his book,
"could never have negotiated
the Steve McQueen deal or par-
ticipated in some of the other
showdowns I was involved in
over the years."
But that's not the Bill Carter
whom Judi Turner knows.
Turner,; co-author of. "Get
Carter," said in an e-mail mes-
sage: "He does not believe in
the word 'can't' and I learned
:early' in. the game NEVER,'
EVER to argue with him
because he is a master manipu-
lator, and he just wants some-
one to argue so he can clean
their plate."
Turner, a. veteran Nashville
publicist, was speaking affec-
tionately, of course. She and
Carter are buddies. She has got-
ten publicity jobs because of
him. And it was she who
encouraged Carter to continue
writing his book, which he set
out to do only for his two
daughters.
This book. has been a lot of
Work; Carter said from his
home near Nashville. Six years
of work. And the Billy Graham
documentary, his favorite proj-
ect, took almost that long. (The
documentary, produced by the
Gaither company, is scheduled
to air on PBS during Easter
week and later on The
Biography Channel.)
Carter's assistant said she

McDonough claims




Miss Fletcher 2006


Sby DIANA KELLY ANDERSON
S. CONTRIBUTOR
he theme of the this year's Miss Fletcher
pageant was "One Moment In Time," and
Sfor Bree Michelle McDonough time stood
still.
McDonough, a junior, captured the title of
Miss Fletcher 2006 Friday at the Fletcher audito-
rium.
"I knew I could possibly make the court when
I received the other awards, MlcDonough said.'
"It was all surreal. I was in shock. Being
crowned Miss. Fletcher didn't become a reality
until I woke up Saturday morning and saw the
crown, the sash and all of the beautiful flowers."
.; In addition to being crowned Miss Fletcher,
McDonough, who was sponsored by varsity
baseball; received the Most Photogenic, Most
Talented and the Best Interview awards.
In the talent contest, she performed a rhyth-
mic gymnastic ribbon dance to "Diamonds are
a Girl's Best Friend" from the film "Moulin
Rouge" and "Diamonds from Sierra Leone" by
singer Kanye West.
She is the 16-year-old daughter of Gary and
Sherry McDonough. Her mother has been
teaching foreign language at Fletcher High for
the past 20 years and has been taking her
daughter to the Miss Fletcher pageant since she
was 6 'ears old.
"I knew Bree had a strong talent, but the
other awards were amazing," Sherry said,
Bree McDonough has a history of rhythmic
gymnastics competitions. She placed second at
the Rhythmic Gymnastics Junior Olympics and
she won the National Junior Championship
Level 9.
She moved up to the USA National Team and,
by the time she was 12 years old, she won six
, gold metals at the Santa Domingo Junior Pan
Am Games in the Dominican Republic.
McD enough attended San Pablo Elementary
School and was a member of the safety patrol.
Once her rhythmic gymnastic dancing
became more competitive, she began to travel


internationally and was home schooled.by her
mother until the eighth grade when she entered
Fletcher Middle School and joined the Infinity
Competition Cheer Squad.
."Two of my goals for high school were to be
in the pageant and become a varsity cheer-
leader," said McDonough, who cheers for
Fletcher and is a member of Fletcher's Dance
Ensemble Competition Team.
"I'm so glad I did the pageant," she said.
."I got. to know so many new people. The
other contestants were really sweet."
The reigning Miss Fletcher plans on compet-
ing in the Miss Senior High pageant next fall.
After graduating from high school,
NMcDonough said she would like to attend the
University of Florida and major in business and
minor in design. She plans to become an event
planner. She'holds a 4.593 grade-point average
at Fletcher.
The first runner-up was Jamilah Batteh
Brown, who received the Academic
Achievement Award with a 4.833 GPA. Second
runner-up was Lindsay \Viegmann, who was
named Miss Congeniality, an award voted onby
her peers. Third runner-up was Alex Nunziante.
Ashley Sweat was the fourth runner-up.
Best in Modeling was presented to Lindsay
Bissell. Jenna Janson received the Most
Advertisements Sold Award. The Humanitarian
Award was presented to Carolyn Coppedge and
Samantha Goulet.
Other award-winners were Nlaura Kelly 1Most
Professional); Haley McGill (Metamorphosis
Award); and Kristen Tuttle IDirector's Award).
The crowning of Miss Fletcher, a school tradi-
tion since 1963, is based on a composite score.
The academic achievement portion is worth
10 percent. Career wear and formal wear model-
ing together are worth 30 percent. The talent
portion of the competition, also worth 30 per-
cent, was held March 3. The interview competi-
tion, also 30 percent, was held Feb. 1. A total of
36 girls competed in the 43rd annual event.
Diana Kelly Anderson and Mary Haves have
directed the Miss Fletcher Pageant since 1997.

'Papa' celebrates 100th birthday

Bias "Papa" Baraoidan cradles his great-grandchildren, Skylar (left) and Matthew, earlier this
year. Baraoidan, a retired forester from the Philippines, came to Florida in 1972 to live with his
daughter, Grace Dancel. She hosted a birthday party for her father March 4 that drew 275 peo-


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
There are certain disadvan-
tages to growing old;
Hearing loss is one. High-
blood pressure is another.
But Bias "Papa" Baraoidan
isn't knocking it.
The venerable Atlantic
Beach resident turned 100
years old on Feb. 1.
"Papa is in great health. He
is still able to read without
glasses and communicates very
clearly," said his oldest grand-
son, Mike Dancel.
"He has seen a lot of changes
In his time."
A native of the Philippines,
Baraoidan worked in a salmon
cannery'in Alaska in the 1920s,
survived the Japanese occupa-
tion of his country during
World War II, and earned a
master's degree in forestry
from the IUniversity of
Washington.
Baraoidan came to Atlantic


Beach in 1972 to live with his
daughter, Grace Dancel, and
her Navy husband, Phil.
A retired forester for the
International Hardwood and
Veneer Co. of the Philippines,
Baraoidan had a new job
description when he came to
the states: baby-sitter.
"Michael was only a week
old when he got here," recalled
Grace Dancel, who also grew
up in the Philippines and
spent 22 years as a civilian
accountant at Mavport Naval
Station.
"My husband and I both
worked at the base, so Papa
took care of the kids during the
day. He had dinner cooked
when we got home."
The Dancels have four
grown children, three boys
and a girl, and Baraoidan
watched them all grow up as a
stay-at-home granddad.
Two of those grandkids had
babies of their own last year,
making Baraoidan a great-


grandfather.
"His oldest brother lived to
be 94, so he has longevity in
his family," said Grace, who
also credits her father's
Catholic faith for his centenar-
ian status.
"He says the rosary every
day. When he was stronger, he
would say the rosary on his,
knees. He is always praising
the Lord."
Baraoidan is a fixture at 11
a.m. Sunday mass at St. John
the Baptist Catholic Church in
Atlantic Beach, where he is still
a member of the Knights of:
Columbus.
He was a frequent sight on
the sidewalks of his Royal
Palms neighborhood until his
mid-90s.
"We stopped letting him
walk alone when he turned
95," said Grace, whose mother
died in the Philippines.
"He used to say, 'Can't I at
least walk down to the barber
shop.' "


astor says food facilitates fellowship
., I .


: by KATHY NICOLETTI'
COL UNIST
fellowship and sharing
meals go hand in hand
at many churches.
SPalm Valley Baptist Church
S in Ponte Vedra is one of sev-
eral local churches that
schedules dinner for the con-
S gregation with other church
activities every Wednesday
evening.
Once a month, the
Wednesday dinners there are
covered dish suppers and a
regular contributor to the
dinners is Re\. Jeff Witt, the
,church's pastor.
Witt said one of his prede-
cessors began. having church
dinners on a regular basis as
ray to tinite the congrega-
on It's a practice he has
also encouraged in' the year
and a.half he has been at the
church.
"People who are connected
lift each other up arid share
,their Christian walk togeth-
er," said Witt.,.:
Food is one of the things


That make this possible. Just
having people come together
Sin a room does not always
make it easy for them to talk
and become connected in
fellowship. The act of sitting
down together to eat is, a,
good way to facilitate fellow-
ship within a congregation,
he said.,
Along with contributing to
church dinners, Witt also
S'cooks frequently at home for
his wife, Abigail, and their
two daughters, 8-year old
Betty and 6 year-old Macy.
Like many people, Witt
said that he learned to cook.
out of necessity. In. his early
20s, he and a friend shared
an apartment in San Marco.
Neither of the two' young
men knew how to even


begin to cook, but they did
like to eat.
\Vitt was a true novice in:
the kitchen who had never.
paid attention to how his
mother prepared family'
Meals when he was growing
up in Arlington.
Even cookbooks and
recipes weren't of much help.
to him since he was not
familiar with the names of
kitchen equipment or the
techniques used in basic
cooking.
"The apartment had a gas
stove which didn't work very
well. It's a miracle we didn't
bibrn the place down," he
recalled.
Through trial and error,
Witt gradually began to have
some success at preparing
food that turned out pretty
well. He soon found that
several friends, who were
always hungry, were ready to
stop by the apartment on a
regular basis to try whatever
came out of the kitchen.
Cooking almost became
entertainment for the group,


he said, as he tried to dupli-
cate food they had liked
when they were eating out
around town.
A Christmas gift of a crock
pot from his mother opened
a new area to explore. Soups,
stews, chili, and hearty dish-
es such as Polish sausage and
sauerkraut and Italian meat-
balls were just some of.the
possibilities using the crock
pot. An added bonus, he
said, was that he and his
roommate realized that they
.were saving on their food
bills.
Witt, who worked in com-
mercial art before becoming
a minister, has found in
more recent years that cook-
ing is a relaxing change of
pace from his daily:responsi-
bilities. Cooking is in a way
similar to his work in com-
mercial art, he said, in that
both are tasks with, specific
steps resulting in a visible
finished product.

ritt's White Lasagna


Recipes: W

Cont. from .4-8
Cooking is also an impor-
tant component of family
life for Witt. He and his wife
share the cooking duties,
with Witt taking care of din-
ner on several weeknights.
This is also an activity they
can share with their daugh-
ters. Betty, the older of the
girls, likes to help make
lasagnas and Macy prefers to
help with stirring and some-
what easier tasks.
Witt and the girls recently
baked a birthday cake for
Abigail Vitt's birthday, a
multi-layered yellow cake
frosted by the girls with
chocolate icing. Although
this was one of the first
cakes he had tried, everyone
agreed that it turned put
well, he said.
White Lasagna, one of his
wife's favorites, is a dish
Witt makes for the church
suppers and for the family.
Chicken cooked in butter
and cream cheese and sour
cream add extra flavor to the
ricotta filling in nis recipe
for lasagna.
Another family favorite is
meatloaf, which he makes
using his wife's recipe. Witt
uses whatever is on hand in
the pantry in recipes and
substitutes freely to see what
works well. The meatloaf is
good made just as his wife,s
recipe directs but is also
good with crushed potato
chips substituted for the
breadcrumbs. The girl's also
like it made with crushed
Goldfish crackers with sever-
al extra saved whole to gar-
nish the top of the meatloaf.
While Polish sausage and
sauerkraut is not one of his
family's favorites, this is a
dish Witt has liked since his
days cooking in San Marco.
The covered dish suppers
provide a good reason to
make a crock pot full of the
dish. He also makes
Enchiladas seasoned a little
more strongly than his fami-
ly prefers for the church sup-
pers. Whatever combination
of chopped onions, peppers,
jalapenos, or black olives
that in on hand is included
in the casserole.
The following are the recipes
for a few of the dishes Rev. Jeff
W'itt contributes to the covered


dish suppers at Palm Valley
Baptist Church.
White Lasagna
3 boneless and skinless
chicken breasts
butter
Italian seasoning
Garlic salt
1 box lasagna pasta
1 lb. ricotta cheese
sour cream
cream cheese
1 Ig. jar of Alfredo sauce
shredded mozzarella
cheese
shredded Italian blend
cheese
*optional
one-quarter of a box of
frozen spinach
Saute the chicken in but-
ter. As it cooks, sprinkle with
garlic salt and Italian season-
ing to taste. Cut the cooked
chicken into bite size pieces
and set aside. To save time,
chicken from a purchased
rotisserie chicken can be
used.
Cook lasagna noodles
according to package direc-
tions.
Combine the ricotta
cheese in a saucepan with a
couple T of cream cheese
and sour cream. Warm gen-
tly until ingredients blend.
To assemble lasagna:
Cover the bottom of the
baking dish with some
Alfredo sauce. Place a layer
of noodles over the sauce,
then a layer of ricotta, then
a layer of chicken then a
layer of sauce, then a layer
of shredded cheese.
Continue until all ingredi-
ents are completely used.
Optional: add a small
amount of defrosted and

Preckajlo sparks Senators comeback


Senior hits two HRs,


pitches in relief and


scores game-winner


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
It was the Justin Preckajlo
show at Fletcher High School
Monday evening as the
Senators clipped Providence,
12-11. The senior belted a pair
of solo home runs, came on in
relief to pitch two scoreless
innings, and capped things
off by scoring the game-win-
ning run in the bottom of the
eighth when he knocked the
ball loose from catcher Josh
Whitchurch in a collision at
the plate.
Of course, the extra-inning
drama probably wouldn't
have been necessary had
Fletcher not surrendered
seven first-inning runs to the
Stallions. Starting pitcher
Matt Crismon lasted just two-
thirds of an inning before
yielding to left-hander Brett
Caudill, who gave up a few
runs before the Senators final-
ly got out of the nightmare-
ish inning.
"In these non-district games
we try to give our relievers a
shot at starting," said Fletcher
coach Kevin Brown. "Some-
times it works out and some-
times it doesn't."
In the home half of the first
Fletcher began chipping away.
Preckajlo hit his first homer
of the night, then Jordan
Dowling lofted a bases loaded
sac fly to make it 7-2.
Patrick Braswell had an RBI
single in the second and
Fletcher drew even closer in
the third. After Devin


Gonzalez beat out an infield
hit and Sam Perry did like-
wise, both runners advanced
on stolen bases. Kevin Lehane
bounced into a fielder's
choice, plating Gonzalez.
Dowling clubbed an RBI dou-
ble and B... Chandler fol-
lowed with a run scoring sin-
gle to leave it at 7-6 after three
complete.


SENATORS 12
STALLIONS 11
The Stallions (8-3) regained
momentum in the fourth as
Josh Reed smacked a two-run
double and Zane Thompson
launched a two-run HR to
leave it at 10-6 Providence.
Preckajlo hit his second
solo shot of the night in the
fourth, but after doubling off
the base of the fence Gonzalez
was picked off second to end
the threat. ,, ,,.
Tracy Shackleford's RBI dou-
ble off Fletcher reliever Sam
Darr in the fifth made it an
11-7 game.,
In the sixth, a pair of syalks


and a single loaded the bases
for the Senators (10-2) with
no outs. Gonzalez lifted a sac-
rifice fly to lett, then Braswell
scored on a passed ball. As
Fletcher stood poised for a big
inning, Brown substituted a
pinch-runner for Preckajlo,
who was on third, to allow
the right-hander to warm up
for pitching the seventh.
As the home half of the
sixth continued, Perry popped
out but Eric Bohn was able to
score on the play. Lehane
walked and took second on a
wild pickoff throw. Dowling
blooped a double to right and
Lehane dashed home to knot
the score at 11-all.
Preckajlo pitched a 1-2-3
seventh and eighth, recording
three strikeouts in the process.
He also led off the bottom of
the eighth by getting hit by a
pitch and advanced into scor-
ing position as Stallions reliev-
er Reed bounced one to the
plate. After Gonzalez popped
out to shallow left, Perry was
hit by a pitch.
Lehane followed with a fly
ball that had Providence cen-
ter fielder Michael Smith
reaching back and sprawling
to the turf to grab, enabling
Preckajlo to tag and make a
mad dash past third and to
the plate. The relay throw
actually beat Preckajfo home,
but a great headfirst slide to
the inside of the plate and a
jarring collision that separat-
ed Whitchurch from the ball
meant Fletcher had come all
the way back from an inauspi-
cious beginning to earn a 12-
11 extra-inning victory.
Each team pounded out 13
hits in the contest and the
Senators were aided by seven
Stallions errors. Preckajlo
picked up the victory while
Reed took the loss for
Providence.

Nease lacrosse continues to dominate


By CHUCK ADAMS
SPORTS IW'PTER
The Nease boys lacrosse team has .a solid
defense this season, as well as an explosive
offense. Craig Carson, a transfer from Long
Island who tops the Panthers in sconng, led
the way with five goals in Saturday's 17-4
win over Matanzas, a victory on Senior
Recognition Day that lifted Nease's record to
6-1.
Carson leads Nease with
20 goals, followed by Jordy
McManus with 19. Bobby
Stockton has 13. In terms
of total points, including
assists, Stockton has 30,
McManus 24, Brett Angerer
20 and Stockton 18.
McManus got Nease
started at 10:17 of the first
quarter, taking the ball
away from Matanzas goal-
keeper Steven Chea and
putting it in an open net.
He scored four goals, tally- PANTHERS
ing twice more in the sec- PIRATES
ond quarter and once in
the third, and also had an
assist.
Stockton scored a hat trick for Nease, as
did Grant Walker, who completed his hat:
with four seconds. Each had an assist.
Angerer and Chris Scnvener scored one
goal each in the third quarter. Angerer had
three assists.
Jeff Ocampo scored three of the Matanzas


I


goals.
Carson had six goals in one game last
year, when he played for Clark High School
in Westbury, N.Y. He notched a hat trick in
the first quarter against Matanzas, then
added goals in the second and fourth peri-
ods.
Nease assistant coach Pete Kemp shared
the fact Carson became ill halfway through
the game. He stayed out for about four min-
utes, then came back and scored his final
two goals.
Coming from Long Island,
a f Saturday was Carson's first
game in hot weather, said
Kemp. The high temperature
was in the 80s.
Rob Bauwens, one of
Nease's four senior captains,
is a defensive stalwart on a
varsity featuring 10 seniors.
Bauwens put his finger on
what has helped the
Panthers this year, follow-
ing last season's 7-6 record.
17 "We have a great group of
S4 guys," Bauwens said of this
team. "I think this year
we've had really good team
bonding. The cliques and all the walls are
starting to break down. Everybody's starting
to come together."
Next up for Nease is Stanton Prep athome
Wednesday, followed by a trip Thursday to
Cocoa Beach, where the Panthers meet
Darien of Connecticut, ranked in the top 10
nationally. The boys play at Flagler Palm


Coast Saturday.
The Nease girls met St. Andrews of
Delaware Tuesday. Next for the girls is
Cushing of Massachusetts March 24.
There are two freshmen on this year's sen-
ior-dominated boys varsity: Angerer, a 57",
125-pound attack man, and 6'1", 165-
pound midfielder Matt Leighty.
"The freshman are the future," said
Bauwens. "\bu can't go wrong with them.
By giving these guys varsity playing experi-
ence; it's only going to make them better."
Angerer scored his third-quarter goal on a
fast break, after taking a pass from Stockton.
"He passed it to me, I saw the comer
open, so I went for it," Angerer said of his
12th goal.
"This team is great," he said. "I wouldn't
have asked for anything better. The bonding
outside the field, you can't go wrong with
that. Our practices are just so crisp, and that
goes into the game and gets us our Ws."
Angerer first played lacrosse in the Ponte
Vedra Athletic Association's program, head-
ed by Dan McAulifte.
"I learned how to play the game," he said.
"It was my first time ever picking up a
stick."
Carson compared lacrosse on Long Island
with lacrosse in Florida.
"It's like a lifestyle up there," Carson said.
"Down here it's much faster and more phys-
ical, where on Long Island it's a little more
slowed down. The ball's settled more.
There's not as much hitting. It's more
finesse up there, but down here it's more
physical."

From Mayport to Ponte Vedra, 100-Percent

Satisfaction Guarantee Sets Instant Air

Conditioning & Heating Apart


The professionals at Instant Air Conditioning &
Heating in Atlantic Beach are proud of what makes
them different. "First of all, we're proud of the top-
quality professional services we offer our cus-
tomers," says owner Eddy. "We're equally proud of
our straightforward pricing, our 100-percent in-
writing satisfaction guarantee, our Seal of Safety
program and our Service Club membership pro-
gram bonuses that few air conditioning contrac-
tors are able to offer."
According to Eddy, not all air conditioning con-
tractors are the same. "Some don't specialize in the
repair or replacement of older systems or may carry
just one brand," he said. "Others offer services
only during the busy season and are not fully
staffed year round. Some even fail to show up on
'time or don't show when they say they will a real
frustration for today's busy customers."
SFamily owned and operated, Instant Air
*Conditioning & Heating serves Beaches residences
.and businesses from Mayport to Ponte Vedra and
ini nearby Intracoastal West. Their staff includes co-
,.owners Eddy and Dee and their son Craig plus
comfort advisor Ed Edwards. Sissy serves as the
company's endearing canine mascot. Dee and
Eddy have been married 38 years, and son Craig
just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. With
more than 40 years of combined experience
Among them, they run their business differently.
"We specialize in service on all air conditioning
brands new or old," says Eddy. "In fact, our trucks
_carry 97 percent of the critical components found'
in most systems."
Instant Air also diagnoses your air conditioner
and provides an up-front estimate of repair costs
from their Professional Service Institute's Straight
Forward Pricing guide..The diagnosis goes
beyond explaining repair costs. It gives you, the
customer, options.
"We have a clear and concise way to show you
whether or not you will need to replace your air
conditioner," says co-owner Dee. "We provide
.options for you, tailored to your individual situa-
tion, budget and schedule and we do this in writ-
ing."
Even Instant Air's repair service is guaranteed in
writing, says Eddy. "In short, your equipment is
Fixed Fast, Fixed Right, and if we have to come
back because the repair failed during the season,
.we will repair 4 again absolutely free!" he explains.,
Sound too good to be true? "At.Instant Air we are)
'committed to your complete satisfaction," says
Dee, "and we have a written, easy-to-understand
100% Satisfaction Guarantee for all service, repair.
and replacement." Here's what it says:

ing to the Technician Seal of Safety program. "You
need to know who's entering your home, and
that's why we've adopted these safety policies,"
says Eddy. All Instant Air technicians who perform
heating and cooling service work in your home
have passed a criminal background check. "In fact,
we'll even e-mail you a photo of our technician

exactly who to expect at the time of your appoint-
ment," adds Eddy.

FISHING




Plenty of big drum at the jetties


Big drum at the jetties got
everyone's attention this week.
The sheepshead and redbass
were also strong at the jetties
last week.
The offshore fishing produced
good snapper and grouper from
the bottom and even a speedy
wahoo up top on a flat line.
Jetty guide Fred Morrow with
Gary Poletta and his wife Sandy
caught the largest drum report-
ed this-season. They caught 24
drum which included a 40-
pounder and a 50-pounder and
one that they couldn't lift in the
boat. Capt. Fred who, of course,
has caught a lot of big drum esti-
mated the big one at 95 pounds.
They also boated five redbass
(eight to 23 pounds) and three
sheepshead at five to eight
pounds. All of the drum were
caught on clams.
Surf fishermen will be pleased
to know the pompano have
reached Daytona Beach and
according to Larry "Fishman"
Finch should show up here in
about 10 days.
Sheepshead were hot at the jet-.
S ties last week. Capts. David King
and Mike Morris spent two
mornings along the north jetties
and caught their limit of
sheepshead to nine pounds on
each trip from the "Crust' Crab."
Last Monday morning James
Gergley and Mart Hamilton
aboard the "Head Hunter"'
caught 36 sheepshead with live
fiddlers. On Wednesday mom-
ing James fished the river not
too far from the Carrier basin
and netted 11 redbass, 18 trout
and three flounder.


WIMPY SUTTON
FISHINq LEADER
Last Sunday morning Capt.
Chip Wingo on his "Shallow
Minded" brought home nine
speckled trout to three pounds,
seven fedbass to,26 inches and a
flounder.
Matt Hamilton and Jonathan
Moran fished the creek near the
little jetties for eight flounder, six
redbass and eight trout.
Capt. Mike Morris with the
Booth party last Sunday at the jet-
ties pulled up Tour redbass to 30
inches, 17 trout, two sheepshesd
and five blues.
Capt. Dave Sipler, Ron Clark
and friend Peter Austria used live
shrimp in the Sister Creek area
and caught 30 speckled trout, five
yellowmouth and a sheepshead.
Ken and Debbie Hubbard
fished te .surf at P.V. and caught
20large whiting.
Larry "Fishman" Finch, his wife
Murphy, their daughter Laurie
and'mother-in-law Ruth \Vnian,
checked out the motorcycles and
fish at Daytona last Saturday. As
the tide started in that morning
Larry took his tackle and sand-
fleas to the beach. Fishing two


poles it wasn't long before he had
a cooler full of pompano and
whiting.
Capt. Kirk Waltz last Saturday,
with Chris Huff and his daughters
Elishua and Tatum and nephew
Timmie on the "Enterprise" fished
the jetties for three redbass, 11
ringtails, three sheepshead to
seven pounds and four trout.
Earlier in the week, on
Wednesday, the Dale Bullard party
fished with Capt. Kirk and caught
11 redbass and two sheepshead at
the jetties.
Capt. Pat Purgason, his son Ty,
Roy Cox, Phil Puttback and Rick
Yanger took the "Down Pat" 50
miles offshore last Sunday for a
great trip.'The: morning started
off with two 12-pound grouper
and lots of beeliners and trigger-
fish: Later in the morning it was
more beeliners, two kings to 29
pounds and pinkeys.
Ty was watching the flat line
off the stem when a 20-pound
wahoo took, a Spanish sardine
and headed east. Ty had his sea-
son's first wahoo in 'about 10
minutes.
Capt Denny Young with the
Ralph party last Sunday on his
"JawJacker' boxed 10 snapper, a
pair of grouper and eight floun-
der.
George Bull Jr. fished last
Friday with his friend Steve


Danzig in the Pine Island area.
They used live shrimp to catch
12 yellowmouth and 14 drum.
There was plenty of action on
the "Mayport Princess" last
week. Grouper, snapper and big
beeliners made it to the cleaning
table after each trip.
On Monday, Pete Fore
weighed up a 23-pound grey
grouper and John Le Brun was
proud of his 24-pound grouper.
Richard Nunn had a 22-pound
snapper in his cooler.

Jaguars revel in NFL peace agreement
peace,,,, .


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST


:The age of miracles is appar-
ently not over. The NFL actual-
lv declared peace last week
between the Fat Cats and the
players union.
Praise Commissioner Paul
Tagliabue from whom all bless-
ings flow. Just when it looked
like these joy-spreading gentle-
,, men would not reach an agree-
ment on a new labor deal, even
at the point of a gun, the sun
broke through and the United
States Marines arrived to solve it
all.. .
SJaguars owner : Wayne,
Weaver, and a few of his allies
'among the other owners, final-
ly got a deal for six more years
of peace (?) and an extension of
the collective bargaining agree-
ment. The measure was finally
approved by a 30-2 vote. This


avoids what would have been a.
nightmare in 2007 a
uncapped'year in which clubs
could have lost their shirts.
A season without a salary cap:
would have led to chaos and
disaster. It could have been the
NFL version of the Wall Street.
collapse of: 1929.
So, regardless of those. who
still see problems, free agency
has begun. The best part for the
Jaguars and similar smaller-mar-
ket teams is that the bottom 17
teams in terms of revenue will
not have to kick into the pool.
That pool of money will be col-
lected from other teams on a
scale; the rich teams kicking in
the most, etc.
With that having been
cleared up, the next order'of
business for Mr. Weaver and
Paul Vance, the lags' senior
'honcho dealing with salary
caps and general football opera-


tons, is to get together with
James Harris, draft expert and
No. 1 overseer, along with
coach Jack Del Rio, and sign
some new blood.
The first signing has already,
taken place, with Jacksonville
shelling out a $10 million sign-
ing bonus to land cornerback
Brian Williams.
Since the dark ages began for
the Jaguars in 2000 the problem
has been overextension of
spending in the early days and a
salary cap squeeze that limited
player signing and develop-
ment. That's over now and with
plenty of room under the cap
it's time to find new talent.
Jimmy Smith and Fred Taylor
need help on offense and the
holes on defense have been
appalling.
The signing of Williams
might be a big step in solving
some of those defensive woes.


They think he nught be the
long sought after corner 'mate,
for Rashean, Mathis, who
became' the best prize
Jackson\ille has come up with
in years .
The addition of former
Minnesota Vikings head coach
Mike Tice should be another big
step. As assistant head coach -
offense, Tice has all the back-
Sground to put a new look bn
that phase of Del Rio's attack.
Mr. Weaver tells us that;the
ties are off and he is charging,
in the old Arnold Palmer parl-
ance. Timid with the spending
by necessity in recent years,
now he wants better results on
the field. This doesn't mean -
we hope signing J.R. Soward
and his ilk.,
With labor intact thanks to
commissioner .Tags, the chal-
lenge now is solely in the lap of
Jolly Jack.
