ATLANTIC BOULEVARD

Wal-Mart plans concern NB


AQUA
EAST


Wal-Mart's plans show a store located close to Atlantic Boulevard.


by JEFFREY MINTON
ST.-AFF WRITER
A proposed 117,000-square-foot
Wal-Mart in Neptune Beach will be
constructed less than 50 feet from
Atlantic Boulevard if the city's cur-
rent land development regulations
are applied.
That would place the store much
closer to the road than the existing
commercial building on the proper-
tyv, located in the 600 block of
Atlantic Boulevard.
A preliminary drawing for the
Wal-Mart Superstore, which includes
both grocery and retail, shows the
building close to the road and that
has Mayor Dick Brown concerned.
"The best I can tell, that would
look real funny," Brown said at
Monday's City Council meeting
where he showed the drawing to
other councilors.


City officials have recently said
that WVal-Mart is interested in build-
ing a superstore on the parcel, for-
merly home to Food Lion and Big
Lots. No official plans have been
submitted, although representatives
for Wal-Mart have had various meet-
ings with city officials about the
project.
City officials say that Wal-Mart is
interested in demolishing the par-
cel's current structure, which is situ-
ated back from the road at the rear of
the parcel, and construct a new
building to house its store.
But that would trigger a new
requirement in the city's Land
Development Regulations, enacted
in 2004. The rules require new build-
ings in that zoning area to be locat-
ed within 50 feet of the road. Also,
any new building cannot be located
closer than 25 feet to the road,
according to the code. Any develop-


er wanting to deviate from the the
code must seek a variance.
Councilor John Weldon at
Monday's meeting said that 50-foot
maximum setback was added to the
code in an attempt to encourage and
"incorporate the Town Center
theme into the Atlantic Boulevard
corridor." In Town Center, the city's
commercial business district, located
one block west of the oceanfront,
buildings are located in close prox-
imity to the street with parking m
the rear or on the side to give the
area a more traditional "downtown"
look.
But Brown, who was given the
proposed drawing of the store by
representatives of Wal-Mart, asked
councilors Monday whether having
the superstore that close to the road
is really what the city wants.

Tax breaks


to developer


may pay for


boardwalk


at Mayport..



by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF It'RITER
A company redeveloping a large portion of
the riverfront in Mayport Village may be given
a tax break by the city of Jackson\ille if it builds
a public boardwalk along the waterfront,
according to an official from the Nlayport
Waterfront Partnership Tuesday.
The developer, Vestcor, has recently pur-
chased much of the riverfront in the historic
fishing village and plans to develop commer-
cial properties with residential units on the
upper levels along the waterfront.
Representatives for Vestcor have said the com-
pany wants to maintain public access to the
water with a boardwalk and is interested\ in
working with the city on such a project.
But the city does not have the money for a
boardwalk, Ed Lukaco\'ic, a city employee and
Waterfront Partnership Project Manager, said at
Tuesday's meeting of the partnership board.
Lukacovic said, however, that if Vestcor would
construct a boardwalk during its redevelop-
ment construction the city may be willing to
give them a tax break to make up for the cost.
"There's no way the city is going to put
in a boardwalk. There's no dollars. But the cit
could give the developer a tax break. It would
be a win, win situation," Lukacovic said,
adding that the city would receive an increased
amount of tax revenue from the development
and Vestcor would recoup the cost of the
boardwalk via the tax break.
"I think this is the avenue we should look
at."
Partnership Board Chairman John lNeserve
thinks so too, according to Lukacovic, who said
he was asked by Meserve to discuss the issue at
Tuesday's meeting. NMeserve was called out of
town and was unable to attend Tuesday's meet-
ing, Lukacovic said.
Lukacovic later said in a telephone interview
Tuesday that he thinks the county has done
such deals with developers in the past. And he
said it has definitely been used in other water-
front communities going. through redevelop-
ment.
He said such deals with developers are often
the only way to ensure public access to the
waterfront because cities don't have enough
money to purchase the land being bought by
developers for condominium development.
"In the long run cities are getting much high-
er taxes from the redevelopment [due to
increased valuations] to offset the tax breaks,"
he said.
"[And] not only does the city receive higher
taxes but the city has an avenue for the public
to access the water."

Former University of Florida star and current PGA Tour rookie Camilo Villegas hits from the rough during a
practice round Tuesday at the TPC. Villegas is the first alternate for The Players Championship which
begins Thursday. This year's Players Championship features 49 of the top 50 golfers in the world (Kenny
Perry is out due to injury) vying for the last title to be contested in March. The tournament moves to May
next year.


Two hours of debate

.on outdoor dining .

leads to no decision,


New fine dining

restaurant awaits

city's decision

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF \1'RITER
A proposal that would allow restau-
rants to offer outdoor dining in
exchange for eliminating outdoor
music was tabled Monday by the
Jacksonville Beach City Council.
The council following nearly two
hours of public testimony on the pro-
posed amendments to the city's out-
door seating ordinance opted to defer a
vote until the changes could be dis-
cussed in a workshop.
"\We need time for ideas to perco-
late," Mayor Hand Sharp said. "Unless
we are real careful we are going to have
unintended consequences."
About 20 people spoke to the
changes which, if approved, would
eliminate an existing proximity stan-
dard for outdoor seating within 100
feet of an established residential use
without amplified music.


Restaurants with a permit for out-
door music would still have to abide by
the 100-foot standard but the system
used to measure the distance would be
modified to begin at the seating area
rather than the property line.
It also allows for an intervening
structure such as a wall, fence, alley or
other nonstructural buffer between an
outdoor area and the nearest residen-
tial dwelling.
Sharp said he was "bothered" by the
notion of a street used as a buffer from
noise because it just "gives the noise
room to grow."
"That is no separation at all, he
said. "We want to try and do what is
best for the community. We wan to
encourage more restaurants but we
don't want to disturb people."
Conditional use approval is required
from the city's Planning Commission
for outdoor seating and outdoor
music.
Senior Planner Bill Mann said uses
that are not guaranteed are approved
as conditional uses under conditions
that may be deemed permissible by
the Planning Commission.

Witness runs

down suspect

in parking lot

robbery in JB
FROM S STAFF
A mother and her 12-year--
old daughter were robbed just
before 9 p.m. Thursday in the
parking lot of a seafood restau-
rant on Penman Road in
Jacksonville Beach.
William Mills, 44, a tran-
sient, was arrested March 16
and charged with strong arm
robbery in connection with the
incident, police reported. Mills
suffered a broken leg after a
woman who witnessed him
attack the pair and steal the
woman's purse ran him down
with her car and drove back to
the scene to return the purse to
the victim.
Officers* responding to a
report of a possible robbery
found Mills injured and on the
ground.
The 34-year-old female vic-
tim and her daughter told
police they left the restaurant
and were accosted by a man as
they approached their vehicle
in the parking lot.

Jacksonville Fire and Rescue workers extinguish a brush fire in
the dunes near the North Street beach access in Neptune
Beach Saturday afternoon, according to a police report. The fire
was discovered by a Neptune Beach police officer around 1:46
p.m. during a property check of the beach. The officer said in
the report that he heard several "loud pops" coming from the
access and went to investigate. He said several nearby resi-
dents told him they saw four kids running away from the fire in
different directions. Police were unable to locate any suspects.
There was minimal damage to the dune in the incident, accord-

JB meets

today to talk

about public

records law
FROM STAFF
Jacksonville Beach officials
will meet at 3 p.m. today to
review public record procedures
to determine how much infor-
mation should be made avail-
able to the public.
The City Council will also
convene at ,7 p.m. to discuss
open meetings in accordance
with the state's Sunshine Law
that requires municipalities to
conduct all of its business in the
public light.
Several members of the com-
munity watch group Beaches
Watch have accused the city of
playing "the shell, game" with
documents involving ongoing
litigation, that, are considered
public information.
Mayor Fland Sharp said the

Dining: Decision is postponed


Cont. from A-1
All applicants must comply with a general set
of standards for approval. Businesses meeting all
of the standards must be approved.
"(Conditional use applications] can't willy nilly
be denied if they meet the standards," City
Manager George Forbes said. "It is not solely up to
the discretion of the board. If they meet the stan-
dards, they get the permit."
MaOn said the changes were initiated by the
planning staff after being approached by develop-
ers of several mixed use projects in the downtown
redevelopment district.
With residential condominiums atop businesses
like restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, outdoor
seating would not be allowed because it would
violate the proximity standard.
While most citizens spoke in favor of outside
dining, many criticized the proposed change
because of concerns of noise and other distur-
bances generated by people drinking outside,
especially near their homes.
"I am adamantly against anything being close
to my home," resident Mike Riley said.
Susie White, a former member of the Planning
Commission, encouraged city officials to keep the
100-foot rule intact because the city's noise ordi-
nance "does not cover voices."
"You can't tell people how loud they can and
can't talk," she said. "We need to protect residents
from more noise. Residents need quiet and voices
do carry."
VWhite said during her tenure as a Planning
Commissioner, the board often granted condi-
tional use approval for outdoor seating with the
condition that no amplified music be allowed.
If the new changes are passed, she said condi-
tions of no outdoor music, time limits for patio
seating and hefty penalties for any violations
could be a useful tool to enforce the ordinance.
Lloyd Archibald, who lives east of 3rd Street in
the Central Business District, said it would be
impossible to enforce such restrictions downtown
where space is limited.
Outdoor dining, he said, helps boost revenue
for businesses in the warmer months without
adding permanent "bricks and mortar."
"We've got to help these little restaurants and
bars. You've got to work together in this situation.
You can't just say no," Archibald said.


"There are restrictions that can be put in. Don't
take it away forever. You've got to look at the total
picture of who this helps. the little business.
owners and the general public as well."
John Alexon, developer of the mixed use proj-
ect The Metropolitan, said Jacksonville Beach is
too small for proximity to play a fair role in the
application process for outdoor seating.
"There are too many places in a commercial dis-
trict that abut residential uses," he said.
Having conditional use applications considered
by the Planning Commission on an individual
basis, he said, should offer an automatic safeguard
to the community.
"We are a Florida community. WVe love our out-
door dining," Alexon said. "Is it in the best inter-
est for the city and the residents to do it one-
way?"
Marvin Kramer, who lives in an oceanfront
condo on 1st Street South near many restaurants
and nightspots, said the city has a duty to preserve
the charm of a beach community by allowing out-
door dining.
"There is a certain aroma, a certain pizzazz with
outdoor dining," he said. "You've got a backup.
One size does not fit all."
Terry DeLoach, chairman of the Planning
Commission, said the amendment "simply allows
businesses to come through the process that
everyone else gets to."
"I have seen a lot of difficult decisions come
before the Planning Commission," he said. "This
is not one of them."
City Councilor Linda Spence said with a little
tweaking, she is confident that the ordinance can
be crafted to protect both the charm of
Jacksonville Beach and the interest of the citizens.
"I think we can find more specific standards to
alleviate the concerns that some people have," she
said.
Kate Clifford, a commercial real estate broker,
said she is working on a deal for a 6,000-square-
foot fine dining restaurant in The Metropolitan
that is contingent on having outdoor dining.
SClifford encouraged city officials to consider the
ability of the Planning Commission to approve,
disapprove or approve outdoor seating with con-,
ditions.
"You still get the last word,", she said.

* The leader's Opinion


Guana swap offers


a very valuable


opportunity to PV

For years, Ponte Vedrans have been debating the
potential location for a high school in our community.
The St. Johns County School Board has said it will select
a school site at its April meeting. The need -for another
high school to serve 'this area is clear. At issue is where a
top-notch facility for Ponte Vedra should be located;
Currently, the school board is said to be deciding
between two parcels the 30-acre Talbot site, located on
A1A, -and the 75-buildable acre Nocatee site, located east
of DavisPark..
A group of' citizens known as the Ponte Vedra Beach
High School Coalition is attenipting to show how a 50-
acre site located off Mickler's Road on the periphery of
the Guana Wildlife Refuge is the best choice for our com-
munity, our, students and our environment.
The county could obtain the Mickler Road site for free
because of the land swap offered by Herb Peyton. He has
offered to give the state 50 acres adjacent'to Guana off
Neck Road located on the pristine Lake Ponte Vedra. In
return, the state would give St. Johns County 50 acres of
land currently in the Reserve located on Mickler Road
near the Publix shopping center.
The Beaches: Leader/Ponte \'edra Leader supports this
trade for several reasons:
We believe that the swap strengthens the state's inven-
tory of conservation land. The Peyton property is envi-
ronmentally superior to the parcel of planted pines next
to commercial development.
We believe that such a precedent is a good one. Why
wouldn't we want to pursue similar land swaps that are
win-win for the environment and the community at
large?.. .
We believe that the location provides opportunity for
some unique science curriculum, focusing on the envi-
ronment and conservation.
We believe Ponte Vedra will benefit from a high school
located within the community, not west of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
Most importantly, we believe building PV high at a
location next to Davis Park is woefully short-sighted.
Nocatee must provide the county with a free high school
site and has offered land east of Davis Park. But if the
county uses the Nocatee site for a Ponte Vedra high
school, it will not be long before Nocatee, students will
need a school of'their own. At that time, the county will
have to purchase additional land to build a school for
Nocatee.
If the land swap is made, the county gets land for two
high schools the NMickler Road parcel and one in
Nocatee at no cost to taxpayers.
For all these reasons, we believe the school board
should pursue building Ponte Vedra's new high school
I on, fhM Mickler Road parcel by. making the.land-;iswp
%with Mr. Peyton. The threat of a potential lawsuit from
the environmental lobby is not reason to ignore the swap
offer. Some things are worth fighting for, and we may
find a friend in the governor's office or logic may prevail.
If the Board refuses to consider the Nlickler Road site as a
plausible alternative, we will lose a valuable opportunity.

Now I never heard of Vidalia Onions until a

As the years passed and the onions kept

To the editor:
I am writing to you on
behalf of the winter monthly
campers staving at Katherine
Abbey Hanna Park. We wish to
make a request to the City of
Jacksonville to establish a new.
winter monthly rate.
Most of us have ;stayed at
Hanna Park for the past five
winters and many have been
steady customers up to 15
years. Most campers who made
reservations last March 2005
for this season (Nov. 1 to April
Ist) were able to stay at the old
rate.
We. heartily thank you' for
this' Idecision. However, the
new daily rate for the next
winter season is cause for con-
cern. The present rate. is less
than $500 per month; the new
rate will be more than $760 per
month (based on a 30-day
month) .
SThis price will be difficu t for
most seniors 'and retired per-
*sons on fixed incomes to'
,afford. After a good deal of
research, it seems the new rate
will be among the highest of
parks in this area, including'
private parks that are for-prof-
it... . :. .
.For example, the following is
a comparison .of monthly
Winter rates for campgrounds
in a -60-mile radius of
Jacksonville.
Hanna Park '05-'06 $432
per 30 days, with 10 percent

This year, the number of
monthly campers 'is greatly
reduced compared to last year.
Some regular campers arrived
before the 'old : rate .,was
approved and those campers
left.. .
Several others cut their stays
short and, some cancelled their,
reservations. This season, we
have approximately 40 month-
ly campers. Even with 40
campers, our contribution to
Hanna Park should be impor-
tant and seen as, a stable,
accountable income.
At the current rate (less than
$500 per month'), we have paid
about $100,000 in fee's for this
season; We also contribute to
the community at large with
monies spent on food, enter-
tainment, fuel, events and
tourist attractions.


\e have been proud to say
"Hanna Park is my home away
from home." W\Ve also spread
the word that Hanna Park and
Jacksonville are great places to
come and spend the Winter
months .
Many of us have family ties.
or medical conditions that
bring us hete; some just love:
the natural beauty of this park.
This park of 300 sites should be
full or near capacity. We found
Other campgrounds we visited
'listed above) to beat least 85
percent full.
Many campers, who were
interviewed said their reason
for not coming .to Hanna was
the absence of a Monthly
Winter rate.
: We are not just out-of-state
tourists; we all love this com-
munity. and our Hanna Park
family. Finding: another park
and close friendships will be'
an emotional strain on. all of
us.
We attend local churches,
volunteer, hold part-time jobs
and most of all we want to stay
right here at Hanna Park. What
we are. requesting is a reason-,
able Winter monthly rate from
Nov. 1 to April 1 in the $500
range.
, Thank you for your time and
consideration. We look for-
ward to a timely response to
ouir request. A list of more than
40 signatures is available and
will be provided at a council
meeting.

Governor must

stay against Guana

land use for school


To the editor:
Governor Jeb Bush is to be
praised for his previous oppo-
sition to the construction of a
high school within the Guana
River Wildlife Management
Area. He should continue his
opposition to the poorly con-
Sceived idea to construct a
high school on 50 acres of the
WMA adjacent to MNickler
Road in St. John's County,
even though Herb Peyton has
offered to exchange 50 acres
of land within the WMA
which he owns in order to
appease other naysayers.
The WMA was purchased by
Florida through the "Save our
Coasts" program in order to
protect important coastal
resources such as wildlife
habitat, recreational, archaeo-
logical and historic resources
from the threat of develop-
ment. The citizens of Ponte
Vedra should respect the fore-
sight shown by our state's
legislators when this acquisi-
tion was approved, and when,
in 1998, a constitutional
amendment was adopted by
72 percent of voters which
increased protection for our
conservation lands. There are
many reasons to deny this
proposed deyvelopment.The
construction of a high school
and its necessary road widen-
ing, parking lot and playing
fields construction would


adversely affect the environ-
mental quality of the WMA.
All of the lands within the
WMA are comprised of impor-
tant wildlife habitat, water
recharge and water filtration
areas. Because the WMA is an
important area for hunting
and fishing,hunting in' the
WMA near the proposed high
school could endanger' stu-
dents, faculty and visitors.
Also, lands within the WMA
need to be subjected to con-
trolled burns to continue the
environmental health of these
lands. This need to burn
could endanger inhabited
structures such as the pro-
posed high school.
The existence of the unde-
veloped WMA provides more
aesthetic and spiritual bene-
fits to Florida's citizens (just
visit Shell Beach along the
Tolomato River once and
you'll understand why I say
this) than any building could
possibly offer. Other more
suitable lands are available in
the proximity of Ponte Vedra
for the construction of a high
school. Has the county really
considered the future of its
children, the impact on its
current generation, in giving
credence to this implausible
"free ride"?

to be built in the Guana
Wildlife area. I am sure that
everyone has heard and
reviewed all the arguments
both for and against this
choice. My letter is to simply
point out that the larger les-
son to be demonstrated here
is one that everyone seems to
be forgetting. No means no!!
Most "concerned citizens"
would have you believe this is
a lesson they are teaching
their children but their
actions speak differently. The
appropriate channels were
explored, all the correct steps
were taken to gather informa-
tion and a decision was made.
Good, bad or indifferent the
decision has been made. Was
everybody happy? No, some-


one always loses in this type
of a situation. That's life. Yet
another valuable lesson. Pick
yourself up and move one.
What message will we be
sending future generations;
Defy authority? Circumvent
the decision to further your
own agenda? No only applies
to everyone else? ,
As decision makers ponder
this situation I hope everyone
will remember what we are
really building. Not just a pile
of brick and glass. This will
be a place where young adults
,will to learn more than the 3
R's. Morals, character, hon-
esty', respect for authority,
obedience and consideration
for others and their ideas are
also on the curriculum. Have
we forgotten these most
important' lessons of all.
Laurie Philpot


I oppose land use for school


To the editor:
While I understand the need
for a high school east of the
Intercoastal Waterway, I do not
want to see any of Guana
Reserve used for this purpose.
Once we start carving up our
nature preserves and develop-
ing them, we are opening the
door to many worse things.


The group supporting the
high school in Guana is very
vocal and very well funded but
there are many, many people
who do not support it in Ponte
Vedra who feel just as strongly
about the'issue. There must be
some other suitable location.
Bonnie Goldsmith
Ponte Vedra


Coalition neutral


To the editor:
The Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition, founded in 1993, is
separate and 'in no way affiliat-
ed with an organization called
the Ponte Vedra High School
Coalition.
The Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition has taken no posi-
tion on locating a school in the
Guana. The School Board is
currently considering two sites
outside the Guana and to date
the state of Florida has indicat-


ed no change from the prior
position opposing the use of
preservation land.
The Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition will continue to
watch the situation closely.
Should the facts change, the
Coalition would consider hold-
ing a forum for presentation of
facts and a full discussion by
the community.
Clara Cowan, president

Support

use of

Guana

as school
To the editor:
On behalf of the children
and communities of Ponte
Vedra Beach and Palm Valley,
I ask that you support the
NEW Fee Title land exchange
proposal put forth by Mr.
Herb Peyton. He has offered
to exchange 50 acres of his
104-acre Outpost parcel, for
approximately 50 acres of
state owned land for a public
high school in Ponte Vedra.
Mr. Peyton's land has been
identified by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission as a "high prior-
ity acquisition," needed to
deter development along the
shores of Lake Ponte Vedra
(Guana River). His proposal
would allow the state to pro-
tect and conserve 50 acres of
high-value, natural resource
land it seeks, in exchange for
50 acres of pine plantation
land, owned by the state,
located behind the new
Publix Shopping Center on
Mickler Road.
This NEW proposal needs
to be heard because Mr.
Peyton's "no-strings" offer
promotes the following ben-
efits:
1) Our Community Wins:
A Ponte Vedra High School
within our community will
be a source of spirit and
pride, and will be a central
rallying point we currently
do not have.
2) State Conservation
Wins: Public protection is
extended to 50 acres of high-
er value, natural resource
land that the state has identi-
fied as a "high priority acqui-
sition." Development on
those acres is deterred.
,3),, State and County,
.Taxpayers Win: At no cost to
the State or taxpayers, the
State gains 50 acres of higher
value, natural resource land
while the county acquires 50
acres of land for. the high
school.
4) Our Kids Win: They will
attend a high school in the
community where they live.
This NEW proposal secures
land for a much needed com-
munity high school and pro-
tects and conserves the
state's natural resources and
scenic beauty by placing Mr.
Peyton's land under desired
public protection.
George Fipp, M.D.

For the delicious flavor and

Senators rally to upend Mustangs


Dowling delivers key


hits twice for Fletcher


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

Playing in prime time at the
picturesque venue of the
Baseball Grounds in Jackson-
ville last Friday night, the
Fletcher Senators staged yet
another dramatic come-from-
behind rally to top Mandarin
6-3.
Jordan Dowling struck the big
blows for Fletcher. The senior
co-captain lashed a two-run
double to the
right-centerfield
gap in the third
and a sharp sin-
gle in the sev-
enth that plated
two of his team-
mates with
insurance runs
as the Senators
surged ahead 6-
3.
"I knew they
were going to
thrown me a SENATOR!
fastball," said
Dowling, who MUSTANG
also doubled in
the second inning. "I was just
sitting dead red fastball. They
threw it and I hit it."
It appeared the two runs
Dowling batted in during the
third might be enough as
Fletcher, backed by the strong
pitching of Justin Preckajlo,
carried that 2-0 advantage into
the sixth frame. But Mustangs
Conrad Morales and Derek
Grimes hit back-to-back one-
out singles in the home half of
the sixth to put runners on the
corners. An infield error
allowed Mandarin to score its
first run of the ballgame and a
passed ball again put runners
on the corners with just one
out.
Brian loseph bounced into a
fielder's choice but the
Mustangs knotted things at 2-
all on the play. Another throw-
ing error on a routine ground
ball enabled Mandarin to take
a 3-2 lead, but Preckajlo fanned
Brandon Sims to end the
threat.
"[ felt great throughout the
game," Preckajlo said after-
ward. "I'm still shaking I'm so
pumped up from adrenaline. I
was a little worried when we
gave up the lead, but after we
scored four runs in the seventh
I knew it was over."
thstead of being dejected by
surrendering the lead, Fletcher
batters took full advantage as
Mustangs closer Chase


Anderson was wild from the
outset. Tvler Bounds led things
off in the top of the seventh
with a base on balls, then
advanced to second on Patrick
Braswell's sacrice bunt. After
falling behind 3-0 to Preckallo,
Anderson intentionally walked
the Senators batter to put two
on with one out.
"We took advantage of what
was going on in the seventh,"
said Fletcher head coach Kevin
Brown. "Granted, Mandarin
fell apart a lit-
tie bit, but we
weren't swing-
ing at bad
pitches... and
a couple of
guys we said
[take] two
strikes before
you swing."
A wild pitch
enabled both
runners to'
advance and
S 6 Mandarin
rolled the dice
S 3 by issuing
another inten-
tional pass to Devin Gonzalez.
Sam Perry worked the count to
3-1 before drawing a walk to
square things at 3-3, with the
bases still loaded and one out.
Preckailo scampered home
on a wild pitch and later in the
inning Dowling ripped a two-
RBI single as the Senators took
command 6-3.
"I don't know what it is
about Fletcher we're just
hard-headed or something,"
Dowling said. "We're not giv-
ing up. We get down, and
we've been down before, and
we come back. we're a good
team and we have a lot of heart
on this team. \We just pick each
other up."
While Pieckallo had all his
pitches working against the
Mustangs, Brown considered
lifting the right-hander a cou-
ple of times during the contest.
"He would not let me take him
out." Brown said. "I wanted to
make a switch and he said, 'Do
not do this. I can finish it.'"
Brown did make a trip to the
mound in the bottom of the
sixth when errors gave the
Mustangs a lead. His purpose
was to let Fletcher's 'defense
catch its breath and get players
to focus on closing out the
inning without further dam-
age.

The professionals at Southwest Funding in
Jacksonville Beach know how challenging
home-buying can be. That's whytheir goal is
to help find the best mortgage possible for you
and your individual financial situation.
"Purchasing a home doesn't have to be as
stressful as some mortgage lenders make it,"
says Michael Mangani, branch manager of
Southwest Funding. "Our goal is to open
doors for you -:not only to the, right home
but also to the right loan."
A graduate of Fletcher High School, Michael
grew up in Jacksonville Beach. He's been self
employed since right out of high school,
when 'he' took over his family's business,
Michael's Cycle Service, which he ran success-
fully for eight years until selling the company
in 2004. He also started investing in real estate
and acquiring properties.
In 2003 Michael became a licensed mort-
gage broker and started mortgage processing,
which made wa\' for Southwest Funding,
which opened in '.lJacksonville Beach in
November 2004. Michael Man
"I discovered that my business skills -
especially my experience in getting loans as a you.
self-employed person made for an excellent fit in finding
just the right loans for other people, too," he said. "What I.
liked best about running a business helping people, hands-
on management, providing top-notch customer service -
applies perfectly to securing mortgage and commercial loans,
especially in a lot of hard-to-do situations."
Most people move every three to five years, says Michael. He
says the way to accumulate wealth is to either reduce your cur-,
rent mortgage liability quickly or create a savings account..
"Often people think of the borrowing side of mortgages and
not the savings side," says Michael. "With the real estate
investment opportunities we have right here at the Beaches
you can essentially live in your savings account," he says. "For
example, for a $300,000 house, that's $30,000 in income at 10
percent appreciation a year, Essentially you're creating an
additional income stream while you sleep."
People should also consider the tax-savings side of mort-
gages, he says. "Real estate investments can mean significant
tax savings something everyone's thinking about this time
of year," says Michael. "The decisions you make now about
your current or new mortgage may help you out tax-wise a
year from now."
He suggests asking yourself these questions while you do
this year's taxes: Did your personal address change from last
year? Did you purchase rental property or sell, exchange or
purchase any real estate during the year? Did you take out a
home equity loan? Did you refinance a principal residence or
second home? Did you sell an existing business, rental or
other property? Did you receive any income from property
sold prior to this year? '
"If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, check with
your tax professional because these issues may affect your
taxes owed and potential refund," says Michael.
.,heprofesjq1n .lsat Southwest Funding take asset awareness
-a-step even further than savings and potential tax benefits. "As
rates fluctuate, consumers need to be aware of their current
financial status," advises Michael. "That means we need to
consider all of our interest rates and not just our mortgage
interest rates. Only four percent of the U.S. population has a
savings account over $100,000. That's why shopping for -
and finding the right mortgage comes into play."
Southwest Funding takes the time to find the right loan -
and monthly payment just for you. They understand not
only the Beaches market but also the many options available
for all types of loans. "With our many FHA, VA, first-time
home buyer, low-interest and challenged credit options, find-
ing the right mortgage may be easier than finding the right
house!" says Michael.
"Because we're your neighbor and live here and love the

ning a business and pride ourselves in providing commercial

stand your schedule, needs and terms," Michael says. "Quick

ment and rolling stock.

Pier fishermen find plenty of whiting


P ier fishermen had a great
week on the whiting last
week and if you haven't
gotten in on the sheepshead
action lately it just might be
time to get a can of fiddlers
and try it. There were hun-
dreds of sheepshead caught
along the jetties last week.
Flounder fishing just keeps get-
ting better and better in 60 feet
of water.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier, Mark Craig was the first to
report a flounder catch. His six
pounder caught on dead
shrimp was the first and largest
so far. The big news, however,
was the steady catches of whit-
ing that were caught and
cleaned last week.
Walter Harris said, "It was
my best two days of whiting
fishing this year. I cleaned 75,."
Steve Gale had 60 in two
days of bringing whiting over
the' rail. Loi Tran caught 100
whiting over four days of fish-
ing on the Pier. Sandy Jenkins
had 60 whiting iced down in
his cooler.
Pompano fishermen will be
glad to know that Cary
Thomas caught the season's
First pompano, a 3.5-pounder
,last Sunday and Thomas Verdie
caught a 3.5-pound yellow-
mouth trout.
Capt. David King and Mike


WIMPY SUTI'ON
FISHING LEADER

have found a good spot along
the jetties to catch sheepshead.
They filled their cooler with
the toothy ones last Thursday
and Friday from the "Crusty,
C rab." I r' I '
The rocks have also been
good to James Gergley and
Matt Hamilton. On Monday'
and Tuesday last week they ,
teamed up for a sack full of
sheepshead weighing up to
seven pounds. Most were
caught on jigs and fiddlers on
light line. James is the helpful
young man who manages B
and M Bait and Tackle and is
always happy to show you how
the regulars are rigging for
sheepshead.
Capt. David Sipler, with the
Jurek party', fished last
Thursday in the river and


caught 40 speckled trout
weighing up to four pounds
and one large yellowmouth.
Jetty guide Fred Morrow had
Robert Miller and his dad, the
Rev. Gerry Miller, with him at
the jetties last Tuesday. They,
caught nine sheepshead to
four pounds.
On Thursday in the canal,
Fred and Dr. Robert H. Still
caught seven redbass to 28.5-
inches and four trout. On
Friday it was back to the jetties
looking for drum. They not
only caught four drum, a 50-
pounder and a 30-pounder, but
also netted seven sheepshead
to 7.5 pounds, 42 whiting and
24 yellowmouth trout. Wow.
Eleven-year-old Will
Billingslev gave us our. very
first fishing report from The
Woods. Fishing in a lake not
too far from his house he
caught a rune-pound, 23-inch
black bass using a mud min-
now for bait.
Canal guide John Dyrssen,
with the Amer family, fished
for a half day last Wednesday'
using shrimp and mullet to
catch five speckled trout and a
flounder. With three mullet
left, John put them in the
canal neai his house and
caught a nice flounder and a
redbass. John reports lots of
pogies and mullet in the creeks

Capt Kirk Waltz, with Dr.
Fred Porcase, his son Frances
and friend Jim Hewitt, fished
the canal last Sunday and
caught 12 redbass, 12 trout and
two flounder. Earlier in the
week xDr. Walt Karowsko and
his dad, Sam, fished on the
"Enterprise" with Capt. Waltz
and they caught 18 redbass to
31 inches and *a dozen
sheepshead. Some were caught
at the jetties while others came
from the canal.
Corey Bownes, Buddy Scott
and Travis Lane aboard the
"Punisher" about 15 miles off-
shore pulled up five snapper to
16.5-pounds, a 17.5-pound
grouper and a five-pound
flounder.
Larry Finch and his wife,
Murphy; headed ''south again
',last Tuesday stopping at
Daytona when they found
hungry pompano and whiting
at about the same place in the
surf as last week. They filled
the same big coolers with whit-
ing and pompano for the sec-
ond straight trip.
Capt. George Strate and the
"Mlayport Princess" anglers last
week were successful on snap-
per. grouper and large beelin-
ers. Jonathan Moran brought
two large snapper to the clean-
ing table last week; a 24-
pounder and a 19-pounder.
The largest fish caught on the
Princess was a 56-pound cobia.
Capt. Dennis Young, on the
"Sea Dancer" with fishing
friends Butch Garvin, Lowell
Breeding and' Tim Carney,
drifted the bottom 21 miles
offshore last Thursday and
pulled 31 flounder off the bot-
tom. All of the flounder
weighed three to five pounds
and all were caught with live
cigar minnows.
The Keith Foster family
fished with Capt. Dennis on
another day at E.F. and used
live sardines and cigar min-
nows to catch 21 flounder, a
pair of 12-pound grouper and
two snapper. They were not
able to keep nine other fish out
of the E..F. bottom.
Good fishing.

This year's ators have chance



to be best in Florida's history


T ast Saturday's, cheers at
Veterans Memorial Arena
may have died away, but
here's a belated salute to the
Florida Gators, this area's
favorite basketball team. ,
Apologies to the diehard fans
of Florida State, Georgia,
Georgia Tech, Miami and
Jacksonville University, but
they didn't make the "Sweet
Sixteen," the Gators did.
: 'And how they came through.
Bi llyDonovan's team played
when the chips were down like
they played early in the season,
taking on every foe with all the
confidence of a crap shooter
who uses his own dice.
It's been a long time coming,
but the Gators never lost their
cool, even if their leader, Billy
the Kid, did. On the sideline he
brought back memories of
Steve Spurrier in football. If
Donovan had been wearing a
cap to cover his receding (make.
that retreating) hairline, no
doubt he'd have given it the old


it s' .,'
\ ,.-",


REX EDMONDSON
PRESS BOX

Steverino sail. .
But let us not criticize the
Florida coach, who has done a
remarkable job since taking
over this team. All basketball
coaches go bananas at every
game.: It's in their blood.
When the calls don't go their
way, the moon comes up, their
fangs come out, a hump
appears on their backs and foes
and players had better look out.
If the Gators can keep it


going, this team will probably
go down as Florida's greatest.
They're close to that now.
Donovan deserves all the praise
he gets and so does athletic
director Jeremy Foley, for build-
ing a great program.
Florida State says, ."Wait'll
next year."
Georgia and Georgia Tech
can brag about football..
The Players
Championship
Quick now -- who's the win -
ner for this year's Players
Championship? Why not take
a guess in your favorite office
pool. Go ahead jump in. If
recent years at the TPC have.
been any indication, fans prob-
ably have as good a chance to,
pick the winner now as they do
on Sunday morning.,
Can Freddie Funk do what
no golfer has done in this-tour-
nament repeat the year after.
'winning? In fact, ,to find a
defending champion getting
first prize in Jacksonville/Pbonte


Vedra you. would have to go
back to the old years,
' There has never been a suc-
cessive champ in either the
TPC/Players, nor was there ever
one in the Greater Jacksonville
Open, the predecessor to the
present tournament..
There have been some who
won more than once, but never
in successive years.
In the old, old days of the
Jacksonville Open, Sam Snead
" and Cary Middlecoff did it, but
none since.
Jack Nicklaus :won three
TPCs, but only one here. Fred
Couples has won a couple.
Ditto Steve Elkington, but no
one has repeated. This has also
been a tourney, where new
names have won. Whoever
heard of Craig Perks or Adam
Scott but their mamas until
they won here?
Go ahead. Pick a winner.
.Your guess is as good anyone's.
This could even be the year that
Davis Love III wins, his III.
David Duval? Why not?


Ultra-running appeals to those:


seeking some unique challenges


uQ e question: In this great age
" of gluttony, what is run-
ning's equivalent of
supere ize me?"
Answer: Ultra-Running.
Ultra running events are
about as uncommon as the
individuals who partake in
them. But this Saturday you
can see, or even participate in,
one of our area's two-only ultra
races: The Guana River 50K
Trail-Run.
SVhaitexactly-is an "ultra?" In
its most.easily understood form
an ultra is any footrace longer
than the 26.2-mile marathon.
The most common forms of
ultras are the 50 and 100 milers
and jthe 50 and 100 kilometers.
The most popular is the 50-
miler for it is often used as a
measuring stick to compare
individual performances. The
50-miler is also the designated
national championship dis-
tance. It distinguishes itself as
the longest footrace with a US
title.
Distance is not the only fac-
tor that determines an ultra;
time also can play a part. Who
can go the farthest in 12 hours,
24, 48 or a week?
Ultras do not necessarily per-
tain only to running. There are
swinumming and cycling ultras,


BOB FERNEE
RUNNING/FITNESS

as well as triathlons and
"adventure races," thalt__r
include all of those plu climb-
ing, paddling and orienteering.
What compels people to do
such hellishly long distances?
To subject their bodies to such
seemingly unending torture?
Quite often, the ultra runner
has conquered the marathon so
many times that he is left won-
dering: "What's next?" Besides',
ultra 'runners pride themselves
on their own uniqueness.
Eccentricity is the badge of all
their tribe. 'For them the
marathon has become ordinary
and inferior.
The ultra is today what the


marathon was 30 years ago. To
some people, the fact that the
ultra is considered extreme and
unusual is its greatest appeal.
Many take up the sport as
they get older. The rationale is:
"Since I can't get any faster, I
might as well go longer." It is
the classic tortoise versus the
hare scenario. Slow and steady
comes out on top.
One of the earliest organized
ultras was the London-to-
Brighton double-marathon tak-
ing place in England every fall.
American runner Ted Corbitt
often ran the event and in the
early 1960s Corbitt introduced
ultra running to the New York
City area.
Corbitt, the founder of the
New York City Road Runners
Club, added ultras of 30 to 45
miles to the club's race sched-
ule. By 1977 there were more
than 30 ultra-marathons held
in 30 states.
The Guana River 50K (31-
mile) takes place this Saturday
at 8 a.m. The race, organized by
the Jacksonville Track Club, is
run entirely on the wild, wood-
ed trails inside the Guana
Preserve in South Ponte Vedra.
In addition to the 50K solo
run there is also a two-person
relay race. Each team member
runs two laps of the four-lap


race, 25K 115.5 miles per runner.
The race was created by ultra-
marathoner, Dave Hatten, in
2002. It continued for two
more years but had to be post-
poned in 2005 due to the con-
struction of the new nature
museum, amenities and park-
ing lot at Guana Park's south-
ern entrance.
Hatten was also the founder
of the other ultra run in this
area: the Jetty-to-Jetty Run, a
beach run from Mayport to St.
Augustine.
This year's episode marks the
beginning of the race at the
"new" Guana. Fortunately, the
old trails were left unscathed by
the construction and civilizing
;of the wilderness. That is very
good -news to all the runners,
hikers, bikers and nature lovers
who enjoy Guana every day.
, Food and drink will be pro-
-ided along the route. Tee shirts
to all entrants and awards will
go to the fust male and female
in the 50K.
In the relay, there will be
awards for the first place male,
female and coed teams. The
event is limited to 125 partici-
pants. For more information on
this unique event for unique
people call 269-3820, 829-8659.

BASEBALL:

Continued from page BI
Swin of his high school career.
"This is definitely the best,"
he said. "Everyone here, a tight
ballgame, playing in a big sta-
dium. This has to be my biggest
Swin by far."
With the victory Fletcher
improved to 12-2 on the sea-
son. Brown said close wins like
the one against Mandarin, and
a similar comeback victors
over Providence last week,
boost a team's confidence.
"These types of ballgames
can break a team's heart when
you're on the losing end," he
said, "it can hurt your self-
esteem as a team. But this team
just won't do it. You can really
gain confidence from games
like this so that a team knows it
can rally and come from
behind to win the close
games."

Are

bikers

insane?

by GLENN ARNETTE III
t A en I am traveling by
/j/ car, I seem to see
V V more bikes on the
road. They are noisy and seem
to run you over when passing
in' the middle of the road.
However, that does not make
them insane or road crazy.
I have attended a number of
Biker Rallies around the coun-
try, and each one is more
exciting than the last. Many of
you would never consider
going to this mob-infested,
over-boothed noise maker
because you feel you might be
an outsider unless you are rid-
ing a "Harley" or something
comparable. However, a bike is
not necessary for the enjoy-
ment of the moment.
For example, there is the
Daytona Bike Rally in Daytona
Beach, Fla., and one other
super rally in Myrtle Beach,
S.C. Both are packed with bik-
ers from all over the world.
Daytona this year had over
500,000 and during its 10-day
run, it brought more money
than you can imagine into the
economy. Bikers are not bums;
most of them are loaded and
have top-notch jobs.
The Myrtle Beach rally will
host over 250,000 in May, and
it will be packed with 10 days
of everything imaginable.
Bikers are easy-going, nice,
polite, and a little bawdy, but
all in all, they are a good
bunch. You never have to fear
a guy or gal in black. It is just
the fashion of the hour.
So, next time you see a
group of bikers out for a ride,
just know that they also might
be riding for a charity and rais-
ing funds for one of their own.
They are proud and will help
in any way, even when your
car breaks down on the side of
the, road.
So, are bikers insane? Yes,
they are insane and in love
with their bikes and seem to
be having all the fun! If I
could only find a good deal on
a big Harley, you might just
find me out there on the road
completely insane with the
ride. It could be "Easy Rider
Arnette" passing you on the
road. Varoom, Varoom!!

Yankees Giambi,
Sheffield injured

by ALLAN ORNSTEIN
New York Yankees Jason
Giambi injured his left calf,
and Gary Sheffield sat out his
second straight game with a
sore right hamstring as the
Yankees beat the Toronto Blue
Jays 11-8.
Sheffield was injured run-
ning out a grounder.
"Sheffield was sore," Yankees
manager Joe Torre said. "It will
probably be a day or two to
recover."
Torre said that because
Sheffield was so banged up
last year, he tried to let his
body heal during the off-sea-
son and is picking up minor
aches now instead of before
spring training began.
SGiambi was hurt either run-
ning outa sacrifice fly or dur-
ing a play covering first base.
The Yankees also got a scare
when left fielder Hideki '
Matsui nearly fell rounding
first base on a double in the
first inning. He remained in
the game and finished 1-for-i
with two walks.
"Everything is fine," Matsui
said through a translator.
"When I stepped on the bag,
the way I hit it, 1 kind of lost
my balance."
Matsui has five hits in six
at-bats this spring.
* Yankees starter Chien-Ming
Wang struggled in his first
spring appearance, allowing
three runs and six hits in two
innings. Two of the six hits
were homers.,
Toronto's Dustin McGowan
gave up seven runs and six
hits in one-plus inning.


Robinson Cano hit a two-
run homer during a six-run
second for the Yankees.
Troy Glaus went 2-for-3
with a long home run and '
four RBIs for Toronto, which
Shas started the exhibition sea-
son with five consecutive loss-
es. Kevin Barker tied it at 8 in
the fifth on a three-run homer
against Ramiro Mendoza. Eric
Hinske connected for a solo:
shot.
New York went ahead 10-8;
in the bottom of the fifth on
Kevin Thompson's RBI double
and a run-scoring grounder by
Andy Phillips, who had three
RBIj. Wil Nieves had a solo
homer in the eighth.
