Residents band against
Neptune Beach Wal-Mart

Meeting on new
law moved to
Sea Turtle Inn
by JIEFFREY MINTON
An April 11 Atlantic Beach work-
shop to solicit public input on a pro-
posed ordinance dealing with pre-
serving the city's character has been
moved from City Hall to a bigger
room at the Sea Turtle Inn to
accommodate the large crowds
expected by city officials.
The meeting is scheduled from 6
p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Ballroom at the
hotel located at 1 Ocean Boulevard.
The issue of whether the city
should enact proposed building lim-
its in the Old Atlantic Beach area to
thwart development of large, box-
style homes has become controver-
sial and has divided many residents
in the community.
Some are clamoring for the city to
place limits on the size of homes in
the area to preserve the communi-
ty's unique character of eclectic
homes and tree canopies. But others
feel that ihe measures being pro-
posed by a consultant hired by the
city to draft the regulations are too
severe and restrict private property
City Manager Jim Hanson said
that the Commission Chambers at
City Hall, where meetings are usual-
ly held, is only able to hold about 75
people. He said the ballroom at the
hotel can accommodate 450 people.

A grassroots effort to stop Wal-Mart
from coming into Neptune Beach has
begun even though no official plans for
the store have been filed.
Representatives for the store, however,
have had preliminary meetings with city
officials about the possibility of locating
a 117,000-square-foot Wal-Mart Super
Center at a 14.6 acre commercial parcel
in the 600 block Atlantic Boulevard, for-
merly home to Food Lion and Big Lots.
And that has many residents who
oppose the chain retailer coming into
the city worried.
The City Council has been flooded
with e-mails since news of the Wal-Mart
surfaced last month mostly from resi-
dents who oppose the store coming to
Several residents attended Monday's
Neptune Beach City Council meeting to
protest the rumored Wal-Mart. And

A 34-year-old Jacksonville
man who won big aboard a
Mayport-based gambling boat
was later robbed of his win-
nings at gunpoint Thursday by
two masked men who broke
into his room at a Mayport
According to an Atlantic
Beach police report, the victim
awoke in his room at the
Comfort Inn on Mayport Road
around 5 a.m. when a large
brick was thrown through the
room's window. Two men
wearing masks then climbed
though the hole in the window
into his room and one of the
men pointed a gun at him and
ordered him to stay down
while the other ransacked the
room, police reported. The vic-
tim said one of the men asked
him "where's all the money?"
One of the suspects grabbed
a "suitcase-type bag" belonging
to the victim and with the
other suspect fled through the
window. The victim said the
suitcase contained his driver's
license, social security card,
some jewelry and $29,000 cash
that he had won that day on a
gambling cruise boat based out
of Mayport Village.
The victim told police that
when he got up and looked out
the window he saw a light col-
ored Chevrolet pickup truck
leaving the inn's parking lot.
When police arrived at the
scene they saw a light colored
Chevrolet pickup truck exiting
the parking lot, heading
towards Fleet Landing
Boulevard. The victim told
police that the pickup truck
had followed him from the
parking lot of the gambling
boat. The Comfort Inn at 2401
Mayport Road is located a
short drive away from where
the gambling boat docks.
An officer stopped the pick-
up truck and detained the driv-
er for questioning. The officer
searched the vehicle but found
nothing suspicious, according
to the police report.

After 16 years, Veal said he is
always striving to, stretch the
musical. envelope, although his'
efforts are sometimes met with,
resistance from blues purists.
Performances by the rock and

the genre-bending Yo Mama's

both drew criticism because the
style swayed away from the tra-
ditional sound many fans
expect to hear at a blues festival.
"Artistically, I have always
taken chances and given a wide

said. "Springing the Blues has

The Leader's Opinion
' Electing county
by districts is
In November St Johns County voters will get a chance
to improve their representation on the county commis-
sion and hopefully the responsiveness of county govern-
ment as well. The change from a five member county"
commission, all members elected at large, to a seven
member board made up of five members elected by dis-
trict vote and two at large is a positive step.
Ponte Vedra residents, in particular, .should line up
behind the idea, of a commissioner from their own dis-
trict. The community has been frustrated by a lack of,
responsiveness from county officials, mainly on issues of
growth and development, and any change that 'gives-
more weight to the community and less dictatorial
authority to officials in St Augustine would be a welcome
change: ... "
Commissioner Ben Rich made the proposal to place the
change on the November ballot and his effort was unan-
imously approved by fellow commissioners. You can
expect the developers to put considerable money into
defeating the proposal. So do not be fooled if an organi-
zation called "St. Johns Citizens for Good Government,":
or some other high sounding title is formed in opposi-
tion. Find out who is paying the bills. As the saying goes,
follow the money.
In 1994 we opposed the change to all commission
members being elected by county-wide vote. We strongly
support the Rich proposal to change back to a more dem-
ocratically elected commission and urge Ponte Vedra
Voters to vote in favor come November.

some interesting ideas like
encouraging front porches by
allowing such a one story struc-'

front setback. They wanted to
limit length of long multistory

respectful of neighbors. Their

yourself. Our hefty tax revenue goes a long way
to help support our police, fire, schools, and local

citizens in Atlantic Beach voted
for a change in the last election.
Our mayor and at least one
new commissioner were elected
by a majority of citizens who
want to find ways to create and
sustain balanced, community-
friendly growth. There was a vis-
ible, palpable groundswell of
support for new and reasonable

Around 9:13 p.m. police were
dispatched to Melissa's Pizza at
2225 Florida Boulevard to inves-
tigate a report of an assault.
When they arrived, the 42-
year owner of the restaurant said
a man driving a dark blue
Chevrolet truck came into his
business and began an argu-
ment over a pizza.
He said the suspect then
walked outside, went into his
truck and approached him in on
a sidewalk in front of the busi-
ness with a steel baseball bat and
knife, according to the police

had any weapon, according to

bat but did not have a knife. The

P onte Vedra resident Ada
Gaudio Ugles says,
"Food is the cement
that keeps families together."
Ugles and her husband,
Doug, both come from fami-
lies that placed a great
importance on good cooking
and family meals. It's almost
as if "food has been our mid-
dle name," she said.
Ugles grew up in an

Ugles volunteers at Palmer

does water aerobics.
She also belongs to an
informal group of four ladies
who call themselves "the

meets on a regular basis to
cook and learn new things.
Next on their list is
Chinese cooking, Ugles said.
Each cooking sessions turns

The family edition of the
cookbook, "Nana's in the

present from Ugles to the
women of the family. She
said she was pleasantly sur-
prised when her 15-year-old
grandson also asked for a

Baking is one of Ugles spe-
cialties and she has many
recipes for Italian cookies,

bar pilots, including Parker,
dressed in suits and ties and
standing proudly on a pilot
boat, is displayed at the
Mayport office of the St.
Johns Bar Pilots Association.
Parker was buried at the
Mayport Cemetery, next to
the grave of his son, "Little
Bill," Who died at age 2.
Following the burial,
friends and family gathered
at the historic Mayport
Presbyterian Church, where
Parker was an ordained elder.
During Sunday services,
Parker always sat at the rear
of the church in an old-fash-
ioned chair with his back to
The tiny church, which
seats about 60 people, was
the first choice for Parker's
"It's where we would have
had it but there just wasn't
enough room," said Kevin
"Piloting was his life. He
lived and breathed it. I can
still see his white hair flying
in the breeze as he climbed
up the bridge ladder."
And like the famous
Tennyson poem about death
and rebirth ("I hope to see
my Pilot face to face when I
have crossed the bar") Kevin
Parker said his father had a
chance to say goodbye to
family and friends a day
before he died.
Wrote Tennyson: "Twilight
and evening bell, and after
that the dark! And may there
be no sadness of farewell,
when I embark."

"With the five

we'll be able to find somebody
who can get people out."
Brown will look to get
Fletcher's offense back on track
following last Wednesday's 8-2

Gators earn NCAA respect

Win, lose or rained out, the
Florida Gators have to-be the
team of the year in the NCAA.
By the same token, Billy
Donovan should be coach of
We could be a little biased,
but they have to salute a team
that came' back from the tem-
porarily dead during the regu-
lar season.to play like the bad
things never happened and it
knew what it was doing all the
time that was heading for
the national championship
Even with all the attention
George Mason University got
as the Cinderella team of the
year, the Gators just pulled up
their pantaloons and buried
the Patriots, 73-58, rendering
their foes just as dead as their
old namesake, the original
George Mason. Florida beat
the challengers with as sharp a
three-point attack as seen all
season. But they also beat the
Pats on defense. Fact is, if the
first Red Coats had been as
awesome, George Mason and
thfe Big G (George
Washington) may not have
chased the limes out of this
The Gators probably would
have found a way to win last
Saturday night up in Indy
without Lee Humphrey's six
three-pointers. The George
Masons would have been hard
put to stop Donovan's
Dandies anyway. Joakim
Noah, the titular leader of
these cutthroats, might have
just scared the Patriots into
capitulating. The nation, led
by the media, just fell in love
with George Mason U.

Florida fans watching the NCAA championship game at Sneakers in Jacksonville Beach cele-
brate the team's halftime lead over UCLA. Florida won its first NCAA championship, 73-57.
But Florida is just plain
good. This drive to the cham-
pionship reminds some of us
of the way the Jacksonville
University Dolphins almost
made it 36 years ago.
For those too young to
know about it, theJU team led
by towering players Artis
Gilmore and Pembrook
Burrows, who ranged in the 7-
to 8-foot category, and floor-
led by Rex Morgan (Batman
and Robin they were called),
the Dolphins almost pulled
off the miracle of their day in
This wouldn't be a big story
otherwise except that Artis
and Pembrook, along with
diminutive Chipper Dublin,
made history on the Arlington
campus by integrating the
Jacksonville University sports
To say that Artis, who went
on to a fine NBA career, was
awesome is like saving the sky
is high. Size is not as eye-bog-
gling now, but it was then.
Artis was so tall that when he
got a haircut the barber
pumped himself up.
Yep, the miracle burst in the
final with a loss in the cham-
pionship game, but the
Dolphins, coached by Joe
Williams and Tom Wasdin,
made history. Until that sea-
son, probably half of
Jacksonville' didn't even know
where or what JU was. It
caused one of the biggest
excitements the old town had
seen since the fire of 1901.
One thing that's come out
of all the NCAA coverage this
year is that now the world
knows who or what George
Mason is and was.
Whatever the outcome of
Monday night's game against
UCLA was to be, the Gators
have only increased their
glory. Cheers for Coach
Donovan and his gang.
Incidentally, almost lost
between golf and bounce ball,
the Jacksonville Suns open
their Southern League pen-
nant defense this week at the
Ball Grounds. Give them a
visit you'll like it.
