Wal-Mart lawyer: Suit likely if NB bans giant stores

An attorney representing Wal-Mart
"showed his cards" Monday, saying
that the company would sue the city of
Neptune Beach and win if the City
Council passes a proposed ordinance
aimed at keeping Wal-Mart or any
other "big box" retailer from moving

into the city.
Jacksonville attorney Karl Sanders'
comments at a council meeting were
perceived as "bullying" by one city
councilor. And City Attorney Chris
White at the meeting said the compa-
ny's proposed legal "attacks would not
be valid or successful" and that the city
absolutelyy" has "the authority to pass
this type of ordinance."

The council at the meeting tentative-
ly approved 4-1 a new ordinance which
essentially limits any one business in
the city from being over 60,000 square
, feet in gross floor area. Councilor Eric
Pardee voted against the measure. The
ordinance requires a second vote and
public hearing next month before final
Wal-Mart representatives April 17

filed plans with the city of Neptune
Beach to build a 117,000-square-foot
superstore at 630 Atlantic Boulevard,
the former location of Food Lion and
Big Lots. The city's Planning and
Development Review Board will review
Wal-Mart's plans for the store at a pub-
lic hearing scheduled May 16 at 7 p.m.
at Neptune Beach Elementary School,
1515 Florida Boulevard.

The proposal has sparked protests
from residents in the city who say the
store will bring too much traffic to the
area and hurt the city's locally-owned,
small businesses.
But Sanders said that Wal-Mart has a
legal right to build in the city because
the filed plans meet the city's current

*At neighborhood chat
meeting at Donner
A pair of Atlantic Beach city
commissioners at a public meet-
ing Monday received a request
from a resident that did not per-
tain to lot divisions,
"McMansions" or private prop-
erty' rights.
johnny Melton of the 800
block of Bonita Road said he
would like to see the city provide
a public swimming.pool ff .the
youth of his neighborhood to
learn how to swim.
"What I would like to see is
swimming. Kids cannot learn
how to swim on the basketball
team. You have a very expensive
skate park and a pool wouldn't
cost any more," Melton said.
"Young people need to learn
how to swim."
Melton's comments were met
with applause .from the roughly
12 other residents who attended
the "Neighbor to Neighbor
Beachside Chat" meeting at
Donner Park.
And Mayor Don WVolfson and
City Commissioner Mike Borno
appeared to be pleasantly sur-
prised by the request.
"I agree," said Bomo, who,
along with Wolfson and the
city's three other commissioners,
has spent the majority of this
year dealing with issues pertain-
ing to preserving the communi-
tv character of the Old Atlantic
Beach area an upscale section
of town..
The meeting was the first of
four "chats" which Wolfson has
scheduled around the city to
meet with residents. Wolfson
has said that the idea of the
"chats" is to reach out to resi-
dents who don't feel comfort-
able coming to City Hall for
commission meetings.
"The purpose really is to bring
the commission to the neighbor-
hoods," Wolfson said Monday.
Wolfson and Commissioner
Jamie Fletcher are scheduled to
meet with residents tonight, 7
p.m., at Jordan Park, 1671
Francis Ave.
Thursday, residents will gather
at the Adele Grage Cultural
Center, 716 Ocean Blvd., at 7
Others topics brought up by
residents at Monday's meeting
eChanging the name of
Dutton Island Road back to
Church Road.
SHiring more staff to work in

*The poor condition of streets
in the Royal Palms area.
eAdding more playground

The Jacksonville Beach Fire
Department recently received
high honors for its exemplary
fire protection standards and the
honors could bring savings on
fire insurance rates.
City Manager George Forbes
Tuesday said Insurance Services
Office, Inc. (ISO) reviewed the
department's compliance with
public protection standards set
forth in the Fire Suppression
Rating Schedule.
The criteria was developed by
the National Fire Protection
Association to evaluate a com-
munity's fire protection abilities
which are rated on a scale from
one to 10, with 6ne beig thff
best rating,
ISO recently completed an
analysis of the city's fire depart-
ment and issued the 3 classifica-
tion based on performance lev-
els within the department, water
system and communication sys-
tem. The city had been a 4 clas-
The better the ISO rating, the
greater the savings on fire insur-
ance rates paid by residents.
Exact savings are unclear.
Forbes said less than 1 percent
of other cities nationwide
earned higher ratings.
"That is pretty great being a
class 3. It is very prestigious.
Chief Frazier and all of the fire-
fighters worked really hard to do
this," Forbes said. "It's also a tes-
tament to the City Council and
all of the hard work "we have
done over the past decade."
The fire department review
accounts for 50 percent of the
total classification and includes
a review of engine companies,
ladder or service companies,
equipment, pumping capacity,
training, reserve apparatus and
personnel distribution.
Communication and fire
alarm systems make up 10 per-
cent of the total rating with the
city's water supply system mak-
ing up 40 percent.
Fire Chief Gary Frazier said
the police department and water
treatment facility also worked to
improve the city's water systems
and communication levels that
are considered key safety ele-
ments during an ISO evaluation.
"That is just something the
city does just to offer better serv-
ices but it also helps our ISO rat-
ing," he said.

As land prices soar at

Beaches, so do prices-

of JB burial plots

Space is scarce in two
Jacksonville Beach cemeteries,
prompting city officials to raise
the cost of a single burial plot by
almost 50 percent at H. Warren
Smith and Lee Kirkland ceme-
The increase will also help off-
set the rising cost of mainte-
nance for both cemeteries, City
NManager George Forbes said at a
recent City Council meeting.
I "This is a significant rate for
cemetery lots in Jacksonville
Beach," Forbes said. "The reason
for this is that it's too full. Land
cost has increased astronomical-
; ly in the past few years."
Forbes said 63 percent of the
money will be placed in a spe-
cial account to be paid for ceme-
tery maintenance and improve-
"That is why it is very impor-
tant," he said.
Previously, the cost of a single
grave space was $1,800. Under
the proposed change, the new
price for one plot will jump to
$3,000. The opening and dos-
ing costs will also increase from
$650 to $750 with the existing
$100 fee for Saturday charges.
The council last December
approved a buy-back program
allowing the city to repurchase
unused burial plots to free up
burial space in the H. Warren
Smith Cemetery.
Mayor Fland Sharp initiated
the program after learning near-
ly all of the 5,000 grave sites in
the 26-acre cemetery at 321
Penman Road are sold.
"I believe there are only 12
[spaces] open," Sharp said.
The council approved the
program that would allow the
city to repurchase unused lots
for $1,000 or the original cost if
. it exceeds that price.
Forbes said there are actually
"a few more than 12" open but
they are not for sale because the
city must hold them aside in
case of an error and space is
needed for an immediate burial.
Single burial and cremation

A monument dedicated to the victims of the yellow fever epi-.
demic is located in the H. Warren Smith Cemetery in
Jacksonville Beach. City officials recently voted to double the
cost of a single grave site in the cemetery because burial space
is limited.

plots can be used by lineal
descendants of the original
buyer but ownership cannot 'be
transferred to anyone else.
"If you do buy a lot you really
do not buy land at the cemetery.
You buy an easement and the
right for a burial' plot but the
city still owns the land," Forbes
"lf you own an easement than
you cannot resell that to some-
one else. You can only resell it to
the city."
The H. Warren. Smith
Cemetery was named in honor
of the former mayor of Poblo
Beach in 1914 and an 8-foot
marble monument stands in

memory of the victimss of the
yellow fever outbreak of 1888 to
The Lee Kirkland Cemetery

Breckenridge said there are
"no immediate plans" in the
works but officials remain
aware of the church's needs.
"We know that they are
probably getting a little anx-
ious. The church is growing
and they need the space,"
Breckenridge said. "We want to
be a good neighbor and be
accommodating but we also
need'to deliver the mail."
Real estate specialist Jody
Sloan addressed the city several
months ago about the reloca-
tioni and identified a need for
approximately 6,000-square-
feet to construct a facility com-
parable to the size of the exist-
ing location or two smaller
locations for mail and retail.
"Finding five or six acres in
Jacksonville Beach vill be very
hard," Sloan said. "If we can't
find an adequate site, we will
go to a carrier annex with retail
"We would rather stay with
one [facility] but the cost of the
land and the location will

For a carrier annex, the

that church officials were con-

said, noting that the proposal
included a single deck with less

Wal-Mart: Litigation is threatened

Cont, from A-1
zoning laws and. that under the existing system of
government "zoning laws regulate the use of the
land, not the end user.'
"Can the city legally use itsexisting zoning laws
to prevent the development of a proposed Wal-
Mart at this site in Neptune Beach? The answer to
that question is no," Sanders said.
He said that recent state case law is on Wal-
Mart's side in the issue.
"I ask you to look at some of the cases that have
come out in the courts," he said.
Sanders also said that it is not legal for the city
to change its zoning laws to prevent the develop-
ment of Wal-Mart and detailed the state's laws on
vested rights.
"Under Florida law, a party has,a vested right in
a municipal permit only if ... it has incurred sub-
stantial reliance on existing law or ... the city has
passed a subsequent ordinance in a bad faith
effort to prevent the property owner from obtain-
ing a permit," Sanders said: "I respectfully
submit to you tonight that that in fact is indeed
what the ordinance, the big box ordinance as I
call it, is designed to do. As everyone knows [it] is
to prevent the construction or development of a
I Wal-Mart on the piece of property."
Sanders asked the council to work with WVal-
. Mart to address the community's concerns about
Sthe development.
S "There's no reason to litigate these issues. There
- really is not. The case is pretty clear," he said.
"I hope that you'll sit down with us and I wel-
come the opportunity to discuss it further with
you and the community."
Councilor Harriet Pruette took offense to
Sanders' remarks.
"... frankly 1 thirik that this was not the time for
you to come before us. I'm not going to be bul-
lied," Pruette said. "I'm going to keep an open
mind and I'm going to be fair and look at after the
community and look at the laws we've got.
"... but I'm certainly not going to be intimidat-

claims, White said he would not reveal his strate-

The Leader's Opinion

Weekend events

good for Beaches

Thousands of people came to the beach this past week-
end to build sandcastles, watch them be built or just to
soak in some sun. .
The 60th annual Beaches Parade on Sunday also
attracted a large crowd as affection for the traditional
event was unabated,
A parade of hand-made floats has long been a tradition
here on the last weekend of April,' as has the annual
Sandcastle Contest.. : .' ,
SBoth were key elements of what was once known as
Opening Day of the Beaches. With the Beaches so busy
throughout the year, the festival had become somewhat
of a misnomer and most of the other hoopla associated
with the event is no more.
But the two remaining key events the parade and
sandcastle contest remain popular and, more impor-
tantly, serve as a reminder of our roots.
No longer home to just a few bungalows by the
seashore, our Beaches community is now home to thou-
When many of those thousands turn out' to enjoy a
parade of amateur musicians or sculpt castles in the sand
alongside friends and families, it is easy to see clearly that
ours is a great community with a lot of enthusiasm.

To the editor:
A lot has been said about
Mike Shalz, who passed away'

Leader by Johnny.
SWoodhouse, but that is not
enough. I personally will
praise this wonderful man
and friend far into the future.
I would like to just relate to
the community what a loss
we have suffered.
Last October my wife of
-just 18' days shy of 53 years
passed away at about 8:30 at
night. I called Quinn-Shalz
funeral home and asked the
night person to make the nec-
essary arrangements for her.
Within about 5 minutes I
received a call. for Mike per-
He explained he was on his
way to dinnerand was on
Penman Road when he was
called. He immediately
informed me he was on his.
way to my home personally.
When he arrived he took
total charge of the situation.
He said the recovery van was
on a run to Orange Park but
would be at the house in
about 45 minutes. When the.
van arrived Mike was still
there consoling the family
and just being a friend which

he had been since he handled
the passing of my mother in
July 2000
SWhen the 'hn arrived, my
daughter, who was on, her
way from Atlanta and who
did not know her mother
had passed away, was still in
1-10. Mike told the van crew
to wait until she arrived so
our daughter could be told
and have a few minutes to
have closure with her mom.
He had the van park down
the street so as not to be visi-
ble when she arrived. Mike
continued to be present and,
to comfort all of us and to
oversee the arrangements at-
that point .
This sensitive and consider-.
ate man will be sorely missed
in this world which is, in my
humble opinion,' charging
,ahead too fast and not taking
the time to show love and
care for those around them.
God rest your soul Mike.
I truly believe you made a.
difference in this world and
you have earned a place in
heaven where God will surely
utter to you as he has to,
other, "Well done, my good
and faithful servant."

To the editor:
A recent writer stated that
she knew of "..contracts that
had fallen through because of
the proposed draft ordi-
nance.." in old (Atlantic
Beach. This is a "SAVE" scare
tactic. If someone is choosing,
not to buy an existing home
in Atlantic Beach because of
the proposed ordinance, it
would be logical that the
buyer is not "interested in'
actually living n' the
existing home, but is probably
be a developer concerned
because it would not be prof-
itable to bulldoze the existing
home. ,
The "SAVE"' movement is a
well organized, intelligent,
vocal, MINORITY imi-no'ri-ti
- the smaller number, or a
number less than half). How
do we know they are a minor-
ity? We know this because
they are the same people who
supported the incumbents in
Atlantic Beaches' last election,
and lost. The leason-that they

lost' is because a majority of
the residents who voted in
Atlantic Beaches' last election
voted for the candidates who
supported the platform, for:
maintaining, the character of
Atlantic Beaches' residential
community and limiting the

property rights. What is now
being decided is what those
rights are. Who is right? The
majority should be. Again,
that was clearly expressed in
the last election.
If someone intends to be 'a
long term resident of old
Atlantic Beach, why 'would
they be extremely interested
in their properties apprecia-
tion? We plan to stay here, so
how would that profit us? I
am certainly not hoping for
higher property taxes. Are

all, Atlantic Beach property
will increase in value.
Isn't it a paradox that your

and your quality of life can
decrease? Hasn't that hap-

that the First.' Coast had.

I'll miss


the Inn

N ews of the Beach
Holiday Inn's closing
has triggered some nos-
talgia in me. The hotel is to be
renovated and turned into a
Marriott Courtyard, which no
doubt will be impressive. Still,
I'll miss seeing the far-famed
sign at the place where my
late wife, Lucy, worked in the
1970s as Assistant Innkeeper.
Being one of ,the most
familiar, large lodgings, it nat-
urally attracted out-of-town
groups such as football teams
playing in the Gator Bowl.
During one of those occasions
(occupations?);, someone
removed the front door in the
middle of the night, laying it
down on the ground, unbro-
ken, thankfully, and underlin-
ing the hotel's "always open"
practice. .
Then there was the time
when guests who arrived' on
motorcycles wanted to park
their iron ponies in the lobby
for safekeeping. Although' the
inclination of the manage-
ment was always to be hos-
pitable, the request had to be
denied. After all, what would
the decision be if someone
came later on horseback? Or
on an elephant?
Another memorable inci-
'de~ft book place when the cel-
ebraitry firing of a 'minii'urie
cannon on the roof of the
building was allowed. The
force of the ear-splitting
explosion from such a small
artillery piece was shocking. It
bent a big, high-level, plate-
glass window inward, threat-
ening to shatter it. Happily,
though, World War Ill hadn't

The Palm Valley Grahl
Neitz remembers had black
bears, panthers and the
Guana River running
through it.
But by 1960, a dam had
transformed the once-serpen-
tine river into a lake, and
wildlife that once roamed
Palm Valley's thick forests
and dense saw palmettos had
become visions of the past.
Three..decades later, Neitz,
a descendent of a pioneer
Palm Valley family, began
putting her childhood mem-
ories on paper as a way to
preserve the heritage and
historical significance of a
unique village once known
as Diego Plains,
Neitz's 12-year writing
project culminated recently
with the,publication of her'
memoirs, "Cabbageberries,
Duck Feathers and the Tides:
.A Collection.of Palm Valley
Memories" (Ocean
Publishing,. $22.95).
'The 337-page'book also
features family photos, draw-
ings and poems by Neitz, 75,
who was raised in a house
on Mickler Road a few hun-
dred feet from the Atlantic
"Constructed of a shell
and cement mixture
icoquinal, it proved to be
adequate for a beach resi-
dence," the book says.
"A beach-shell driveway
ran from the road to the
garage. ... The generator
powered our one oscillating
fan and provided electricity

.- Ne'ifz, Whose maideftn ame
is Barkoskie, was born in
1931. Her father was a cattle-
man of Polish descent. Her
mother was once a railroad
station telegrapher in Pablo
In "Cabbageberries," Neitz
reflects on her childhood
years (1931-45) in Palm
Valley, "when primitive
Florida was struggling
against the increasing pace
of progress," the book says.
"During the early 1990s, I
saw Palm Valley's saw pal-
metto plains and dense
swamps being gradually
replaced by houses and street
lights and realized my mem-
ories of a beautiful era and
area would die with me,"
added Neitz this week.
"The idea of attempting to
portray them in a book slow-
ly matured. As subdivisions
began to grow in the area, I
saw a need to finish the

memoirs in 1993 after retir-

ment at CSX.

ical societies and libraries
and interviewed neighbors
and family members to sup-
plement her own stories.
The book also includes
more than a dozen pencil
drawings by Neitz,. some
based on archival photos.
Among the most 'interest-
ing of Neitz's recollections
are chapters on Guana River,
moonshiners, Nlickler's pier,
and School No. 26, where
.Neitz said she learned, "the
three R's plus geography
while sitting at wooden
desks with ink stains and
carvings of scholars who had
moved on."
"Each row of desks made
up a grade from first to
sixth. ... Sports equipment
was unheard of. ... One out-
house for boys and another
for girls."
Neitz attended the old
two-room schoolhouse on
Palm Valley Road until its
demise in 1942. She trans-
ferred to Jacksonville Beach
Elementary and went on to
graduate from Fletcher High
School in 1949.
During summer break, '
NMickler's pier was a "major
hangout," Neitz says in the
"Other than a windmill, a
3-horsepower engine sup-
plied the only power source
for the pier. I remember
those ice-cold belly' washers
in the drink box."
Neitz writes poignantly of
her late parents, Eston and
Lois Barkoskie, who married
in 1925. Neitz's mother
raised three children and
then spent 25 years as a
"house mother" at the
Daniel Memorial Home for
Children in Jacksonville.
Her father died in 1961, on
the eve of Alan Shepard's
first space flight.
Neitz doesn't claim to be a
historian, just one of the last
survivors of one of the first
families of Palm Valley.

down the way it was," she

Martin relies on southern recipes -iM M

The beautiful plantation
homes in southwestern
Georgia near Albany and the
rich heritage of Southern
cooking enjoyed by their
inhabitants were the inspira-
tion for "The Southern
Plantation Cookbook" by
Ponte Vedra resident Corrine
Cariton Martin.,
Carlton's cookbook, pub-
lished in 1976, includes
chapters on the history of
the area's plantations, pho-7
tographs of the plantation
houses, and recipes from
many of the families who
lived there.
Martin's family home was
Oakland Plantation where
she spent her childhood.
Oakland and several other
plantation houses dated
back to the late 19th century
while others were from the
era before the Civil War.
A good number of the
plantations are to this day
working farms, said Martin,
"The Southern Plantation

Cookbook" has recipes for
real Southern cooking from
the women of the area.
Although out of print,
copies of the cookbook are.
available on Ebay, Mfartin.
Although Ponte Vedra has
been their home for several.
years, Martin and her hus-
band Joe return to southwest
Georgia every year to spend
time at their quail hunting
plantation there.
Earlier this year, Martin's
second book was published.
The children's book is titled
"Tsunami Sue" and is about
a small girl swept away by
the 2004 Asian tsunami.
The child in this imagina-
tive story clings to her
beloved doll as she holds
onto a tree above the rush-
ing water. The story ends

happily as the little girl is
rescued and reunited with
her family.
Martin said that she felt
compelled to write the book.
She was inspired by a for-
lorn looking rag doll she
found a week after the disas-
ter. Proceeds from the sale of
the book will be used to
benefit children in the areas
impacted by the tsunami.
"Tsunami Sue" comes
packaged with a small doll
like the one in the story. It
is available at The Book
Mark in Atlantic Beach, A La
Carte Catering, Wickets,
. ineapple Post, and at
"The Southern Plantation
Cookbook" remains a source
of recipes in Martin's
kitchen. Even though her
style of cooking has changed
with,the times, many' of the
recipes in the cookbook are
part of family tradition for
holidays and special occa-
One her favorite recipes in
the cookbook is Light
Homemade Biscuits. She was

taught how to make biscuits
with this recipe by another
southern cook years ago.
With a little practice, Martin
said, it's easy to make really
great biscuits with this
Another "Plantation"
recipe is Tomato Pudding, a
casserole that was a standard
on holiday tables in south-
west Georgia.
The pudding is "sweet and
sinful, like a dessert" and
delicious with a
Thanksgiving turkey or any
other type of fowl, said
When she is entertaining,
Martin enjoys selecting
recipes for taste as well as
for eye appeal. Since "the
eye eats first," the presenta-
tion of the food adds much
to the enjoyment of any
Martin's recipe for Black
Forest Pork Chops combines
thick pork chops with a lus-
cious cherry sauce.


Corrine Carlton Martin's book for children "Tsunami Sue" was
published earlier this year. She is also the author of 'The
Southern Plantation Gookbook."

Senators fal in district championship

Fletcher set to take on

DeLand in its regional

playoff round opener

Junior right-hander Mike
Miranda of Gaines'ille Buchholz
usually comes in to close out
baseball games.
Thursday night, Miranda
opened and dosed for the visit-
ing Bobcats in a 4-2 win over
Fletcher High in the District 1-
6A title game at Sandalwood.
Muanda (2-1,
6 saves) tossed a
complete game
three-hitter -
with nine strike-
outs and added
an ,RBI double
to pace Buch-
holz to its sec-
ond straight dis-
trict title.

thb 6A playoffs.
,Fletcher (19-71 travels to
DeLand to.face the surprise
District 2-6A champion Bulldogs
(17-9) at Conrad Park on
Tuesday night.
'DeLand captured its first dis-
trict crown in 10 years Thursday.
Fletcher was hoping to corral its
first since 1995.
S"Miranda is a player," said
Fletcher skipper Kevin Brown
Thursday night.
"He hits well, too. We had
seen him before, but always in
the closing role. I didn't think he
could go that long. To his credit,
he competed."
And-then some.
Miranda struck out the last
five Senators he faced. He also
roped a double off Senator
starter Devin Gonzalez in the

third inning and plated the
eventual winning run.
Buchholz, under 23-year head
coach Bob Smith, rallied from an
early 2-0 deficit with three runs
in the third and an insurance in
the fourth.
Fletcher opened the scoring
on an RBI hit by Kevin LeHane
that scored Sam Perry from sec-
ond and a passed ball that scored
LeHane from third.
Tyler Bounds (double) and
Patrick Braswell
had Fletcher's
f other two hits.
Gonzalez (6-3)
took the loss for
the Senators,
giving up eight
Stephen Pelc,
the team's only
senior starter,
.went 2-for-4
4 with a double
and two RBI.
S 2 Fletcher's first
four hitters,
Braswell, Justin Preckailo, Gon-
zalez and Perry managed only
two hits in 12 combined at-bats.
"We've come back all year and
I thought one of those four was
going to rope a double or hit a
home run and we would walk
out of here with a 5-4 win,"
added Brown, who leads
Fletcher into the playoffs for the
first, time since 1996.
"We made baserunning mis-
takes and fielding mistakes. This
game 1 ,,a mental letdown on
our part. ", ;
"But we're moving on. This
would really be bad if this was
the last game, but it's not."
Brown chocked up the loss to
lack of -playoff experience.
Buchholz re~led on its 10 previ-
ous years of postseason experi-

Senators baserunner Tyler Bounds dives back safely to first on a pickoff attempt from action earlier this season. Bounds, who
clubbed a double, had one of Fletcher's three hits last Thursday night against Gainesville Buchholz pitcher Mike Miranda in the dis-
trict championship game. The Bobcats defeated the Senators, 4-2.

ence to capture the district title
as the third seed.
The Bobcats reached the
regional semifinals last year and
have made the elite eight 'five
"But we have not been able to
make the jump [to state]," added
Smith, who started Miranda
after using his Nos. I and 2

pitchers in beating top-seeded
Mandarin Tuesday night.
"There were two kids we did-
n't want to beat us, and that was
Perry and Gonzalez. So in situa-
tions where they could hurt us,
we worked around them.
Brown also said Preckallo (two
walks, strikeout) never saw "a
fastball" and that Miranda took

his time when Gonzalez was at
the plate, eventually inducing
the Florida State signee into
three groundouts.
"He stepped off the rubber
when Devo was up there," added
Brown, whose team's 19 wins are
the most b). Jetchet sice 1995.
"I bet Devo's at-bats lasted 10
minutes. We made mistakes and

those guys put it on us. That's
why you have to be intense the
entire game. And that starts
when you walk through the
gate. :
"We'll do better."
Game time for Tuesday is 7
p.m. A win would put Fletthri
in the regional semifinals on
Friday, also at 7 p.m.

Atlantic Laser's service goes an extra-extra step further by
providing a 100-percent guarantee on their products and serv-
ice, free delivery, unsurpassed equipment service and an easy.
and adaptable ordering system to help you save money by
managing your inventory.
Another one of Atlantic Laser's most sought-after --And
money-saving specialties is remanufactured cartridges. "The
components for today's remanufactured cartridges are much
more complex than they used to be," Patsy says. "Some have
computer chips with more advanced features that require
more technical compatibility considerations, and that's why
our remanufacturing experts are fully trained in the remanu-
facturing process that we perform in house."
Atlantic Laser's remanufacturing process includes pre-test-
ing, disassembly, reassembly and post-testing. Note that:the
process begins and ends with testing. First the technicians test
to see which parts of the cartridge can be recycled and then
they disassemble the cartridge. Those parts that are reusable
are cleaned and sorted for reassembly. All unused toner is
cleaned out and defective parts are properly disposed of.
Using new and reclaimed parts, the cartridges are reassem-
bled and filled with high-quality graphics toner for a crisp,
clean print. Then it's back to Atlantic Laser's thorough testing,
which includes checking for any print defects and continuity
of a quality print. After testing, each cartridge is sealed in a
humidity-stabilizing Mylar bag, boxed with instructions and a
test print, ready for delivery.
But there's more! Atlantic Laser's cartridge remanufacturing
process and product delivery service are as "sweet" as they are
thorough. Evenry remanufactured cartridge box as well as
'.every office supply, product and equipment delivery -
includes a sweet bonus. Every order from Atlantic Laser
includes a treat L a piece or two of candy. If the order's sweet,
you know it's from Atlantic Laser!

inch andAtelevich win Ranger Redfish tourney

C congratulations to veteran
anglers Larry "Fishman".
Finch and his partner
George Altelevich for winning
lat weekends' Ranger Redfish
The top 15 redfish anglers
from Georgia, Florida, South
Carolina, Texas and Louisiana
participated in the two-day
event last Friday and Saturday.
Each day they could weigh up
their two largest legal redbass.
Larry and George weighed up
two reds on Friday that totaled
14.99 pounds and on Saturday
their two reds weighed 12.78
pounds. They caught their reds
using live finger mullet near
the Atlantic Blvd. Bridge.
Their prizes included a new
Ranger Bass Boat, a 40-horse


power Yamaha and a trolling
motor, a Hummingbird fish
finder and a Loadmaster Trailer.
The weekend was blown out,
of course, but earlier there was
plenty of action from the
mouth of the river to the

Carrier Basin.
Capt. David King and Mfike
Morris on the "Crusty Crab"
found the first real bite of hun-
gry jacks, blues and Spanish last
week and using any lure they
picked up caught coolers full of
fish each morning.
Capt. Kirk WVaJtz on his
"Enterprise" can always be
found around the fish. On
Monday morning, with the
Malcolm Jones party, Capt. Kirk
reports a catch of 12 redbass
and seven trout.
On Friday morning, in the
river near the Carrier Basin,
Catherine Birmingham and her
daughter Andy fished with
Capt. Kirk and caught 24 jacks
and eight trout trolling.
Then in the afternoon, with
the Wayne Watkins party,

along the jetties pulled in 11
redbass, a trout and two sharks.
Canal guide John Dyrssen
and Dwight Hibbard last
Tuesday used live shrimp on
their float rigs and caught eight
speckled trout and eight floun-
der. All of the fish were caught
between the Atlantic Blvd. and
McCormick Bridges.
The "Mayport Princess," with
Capt. George Strate at the
wheel, made trips last Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday to
around the Eiton Bottom.
On Monday, Mark Timmons
led all anglers by pulling up
two mangrove snapper at 14
and 12 pounds. Anglers caught
another 12 mangrove snapper,
two big grouper and their limit
of beeliners.'
Jeff Woodard held the hot

pole from the Princess on
Wednesday. He cleaned a 25-
pound and a 12-pound snap-
per. Other anglers caught three
S kings, an amberjack and their
limit of big beeliners.
Capt. Dennis Young on his
V: "Sea Dancer" last Monday, with
the Alien Earl party, fished the
bottom at M.G. and M.F. for
five snapper and a pair of
grouper, and on Tuesday, with
Bryan Pfyfer and three others,
Capt. Dennis reports a catch of
50 large beeliners and one
scamp grouper.

Jetty guide Fred Morrow
fished the jetties last week with
William Myers and Troy Taylor
and pulled up five redbass out
of the rocks measuring 27 to 33
James Gergley, J.B. Hill and
Steve Vash fished from the
"Fun Times" last Monday near
the rocks and caught 20
Spanish and five redbass, and
then on Tuesday this crew used
pogies at the jetties and caught
20 redbass measuring 25 to 32

Jaguars get some nice catches on draft day

H alfway through the
NFL's annual fishing
tournament the
thought occurred to us that
only the names change every
year. The coaches and fans
(and medial remain the same.
This is a fishing expedition,
but unlike fishermen, nobody
brags about the ones that got
This is a tournament where
the pickers may not openly
boast about what they caught,
but they will defend their
catches to the end.
Even if a team comes up
with a suspect who is blind in
one eve, has one leg shorter
than the other and is timed in
the 40 with a calendar, the
coaches and paid kibbutzers
will swear that "Limpy" or
"Squint" or whatever his
name is, was what they were
looking for all along.
The Jaguars took (we said,
"took," not "were taken") two
men from UCLA: Tight end
Marcedes Lewis and running


back/kick returned Maurice
Drew and one from
Oklahoma, Clint Ingram, line-
This constituted the first
day's catch. The latter was the
sole linebacker netted and he
was quick to say he wants to
start and replace Akin
Ayodele, which sounds note-
worthy, but then one could
hardly expect him to say he's
content to sit on the bench
and spend the games playing

gin with other stationary -
chattel such as David Garrard
and Quinn Gray.
That should be hardly the
case. The Jaguars need a fix at
linebacker to replace Ayodele
and anyone can apply and
show his stuff. Ingrami has a
chance. He's not competing
for quarterback against Byron
Leftwich, in which case he
might as well stay home.
How about this Maurice
Drew, described as a running
back/kick returned? He's 5-
feet-7, 209, a welcome change
from most these days who
range in the 8-foot area. At
least those of us in the media
can talk to Maurice without
standing.on a chair.
What's in a name? The great
Barrymore actors, Lionel and
John land Ethel) had a father
named Maurice and a grand-
dad from the Drews. They all
had class coming out of their
ears. Maybe this Maurice, who
had a mess of records with the
Bruins and passed up his sen-
ior year "to please his grandfa-

other chalked up all-purpose
yardage of 4,688, and among
other things, returned 15
punts for 427 yards, catching
31 passes for 453 yards, will
also have class.
He led the nation with 28.7
yard average on punt returns.
So far, he sounds all right.
At a luncheon last week
before the NFL draft began on
Saturday, Coach Jack Del Rio
told his media listeners that if
the Jaguars committee were
paying big attention to the
usual talents of the college
candidates, speed, agility, past
achievements, etc., they were
also studying the character of
the lads.
This is taken to mean that
no matter how talented a
player might be, his conduct
would be very important. No
presidential assassins or
known terrorists would even
be considered, we understood.
He didn't say that some off-
field or campus capers would
necessarily eliminate anyone.
If anyone might be slightly

tarnished by the latter, it
would be Dee Webb of the
Florida Gators out of
Jacksonville's Ed White High.
It always helps to have at least
one local lad corning in with
the truck load of talent.
If some critics doubt Webb's
conduct, most Gators don't
and none of the Jaguars' brass
look at him like he might be
another Lee Harvey Oswald.
They drafted a Gator, so that
helps the overall PR approach.
Jacksonville didn't draft a
Seminole, even though there
were plenty of them to go
around. They didn't draft a
Bulldog, although some
thought skyscraper Leonard
Pope would be a nice catch.
But they did take Dee Webb
and mat pleases a lot of
Florida fans. The old saying
that you can please some of
the fans some time, but all of
the fans never, is still true.
What's important is that the
Jaguars' brass is pleased.
Webb has been haunted by
the incident he was investigat-

ed for last February. The story
was that while showing a
teammate a AK-47 weapon, it
accidentally discharged and
nearly hit a couple of women
in the next apartment. He
probably didn't know it was
loaded, right?
There were other things
young Dee did of question,
too, but all that is in me past,
so how can he help Del Rio's
cause now? As a cornerback
he might be a threat to the
other teams, even if he's
frisked at the gate.
What about Brent Hawkins,
DE, of Illinois State, James
Wyche, of Syracuse, or free
agent signee Jamaal Fudge, a
free safety and also a former
Ed White star, and various
other free agents?
They say Fudge is not only
sweet, but can cover ground,
so he might be worth a
Let us not forget free agent
Nick Greisen. Del Rio and
staff like him. What else is

of Florida.
She has won nearly 200 tour-
naments, and as a sixth grader
this past year, played in the
number two spot on the
Northside Christian High
School golf team and help it
win its first state title. She has
dreams of someday being a pro-
fessional golfer and playing full
time on the LPGA tour, but
knows that she must be patient
and bide her time.
The problem is that Dakoda's
mother, Kelli Jo, doesn't have a
lot of time.
Kelli Jo Dowd was diagnosed
with breast cancer in 2000 and
underwent a double mastecto-
my and chemotherapy, and
doctors felt that she had been
cured of her cancer. Then last
year, the cancer returned, this
time invading multiple areas in
her skeleton and her live, and
she was told that her condition
was terminal.
Knowing that she didn't have
long to live, Kelli Jo realized
that there were many goals that
she would never see her daugh-
ter reach, and one of those was
seeing, Dakoda fulfill her dream
of playing in an LPGA event.
Bobby Ginn, a real estate
mogul knew that he could
make things right. As chairman
of the Ginn Clubs and Resorts
Open, an LPGA event in its
inaugural year in Orlando, he
extended a sponsors invitation
for Dakoda to play in the tour-
nament which began Thursday

*" m

April 27th.
Naturally, Dakoda accepted,
and when she teed off in her
first professional event, her
mother was walking with her
every step of the way.
Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among
women, other than skin cancer,
and is the second leading cause
of cancer death in women, after
lung cancer.
According to the Amencan
Cancer Society, approximately
213,000 women in the United
States will be found to have
breast cancer in 2006, and over
40,000 women will die from
the disease this year.
Also, there are slightly over
two million women living in
the United States who have
been treated for breast cancer.
One out of every eight women
will develop breast cancer, and
of those that develop the dis-
ease, about one-third will die.
Fortunately, due to earlier
detection and improved treat-

ments, breast cancer death rates
are going down.
Signs of breast cancer include
a palpable breast lump or mass,
sweling of part of the breast,
skin irritation or dimpling, nip-
ple pain or the nipple turning
inward, redness or scaliness of
the nipple or breast skin, nipple
discharge other than breast
milk, and a lump in the under-
arm area.
The ACS has several guide-
lines for finding breast cancer
early in women without symp-
toms. The most common sign
of a breast cancer is a new lump
or mass, and therefore women
in their 20s should begin
monthly self breast exams, and
have a physician examination
every three years.
Annual mammograms and
physician directed breast exams
should begin in women age 40.
Kelli Jo Dowd urges women
not to do what she did, for she
didn't heed the warning signs.
She was 36 years old and found
a lump, but she ignored it and
waited some ten months to
finally get it checked, thinking
there was no way it was cancer.
If you have any of the signs
suggesting cancer of the breast,
get it checked immediately.
