Jacksonville Beach officials
Monday voted unanimously in
favor of a revised outdoor seat-
ing ordinance that charges the
city's Planning Commission and
Code Enforcement Board with
the power to grant and revoke
outdoor seating permits.
"In boards we trust," Mayor
Fland Sharp said, .... .,
The amended ordinance also
places new limitations on the
size of an outdoor seating area
based on the size of the enclosed
portion of the business and
changes parking requirements
to one space per every 100
Distance requirements that
limited outdoor seating within
100 feet of an established resi-
dential use were eliminated in
the Central Business District
where a number of mixed use
projects are in development.
Outside the CBD, the distance
between an outdoor area and
residential use can be as close to
150 feet if there is a structure,
such as the restaurant itself, in
between. \\ith no buffer other
distance must be 300 feet.
Councilor Linda Spence
rebuffed the elimination of the
CBD requirements because it
discriminated against residents
in that district where residential
uses are permitted.

Transportation officials with JTA are
asking officials at the three Beach cities
to help compile data needed to deter-
mine whether bus service into northern
St. Johns Count)' is needed.
Jacksonville Beach Mayor Fland Sharp,
City Manager George Forbes, Neptune
Beach Mayor Dick Brown, Atlantic
Beach City Manager Jim Hanson and
Jacksonville City Councilor Art Graham
Thursday met with JTA planners to dis-
cuss the proposed expansion.
Also in attendance were Ponte Vedia
Chamber president Jeffrey Oliasami and
and chamber members Ginger Lilly
Pearce, Mark Slyter, treasurer Alex
Quijano and lacksonville Beach City
Councilors Rick Knight and Penny
Christian, who proposed the service
extension last month.
, The proposed extension is not a quick
fix, cautioned JTA officials, but a collab-
orative effort between city leaders and
civic groups could lead to a solution.
Christian said it was important to
extend bps service into Ponte Vedra to
accommodate hotel, restaurant and
other service employees in the area who
rely on public transportation to get to
A new bus line could also be instru-
mental in getting more vehides off the
road, she said.
Steve Arlington, director of strategic
planning for JTA, said said adding serv-
ice into northern St. Johns County
"could take a couple of years to' imple-
ment" if it is included in the agency's
upcoming route reconstruction.
Planning for the last significant
change began in 2002 and was not in
place until 2004, he said.
"JTA is going through the most com-
prehensive route reconstruction in
decades," JTA official Mike Miller said,

Neptune Beach city officials are explor-
ing the idea of permitting mixed use
developments a combination of com-
.paercial and residential as a way to fill
the city's vacant commercial parcels.
And at least one prominentt commer-
cial landowner in the city says, that a

"attacte option for its potential clients.
The City Council discussed the issue at
its Monday workshop meeting where a
Aepreseta.tive for the owner of Penman
Plaza where WVinn Dixie is located -
spoke about the advantages of mixed use
projects in Neptune Beach. The city's
land use code prohibits residential densi-
ty in commercial districts, although
homes are permitted in the city's Town
Center by special exception.
Carlos Asensio, a representative for
Flagler Development Company which
owns Penman Plaza, said that land val-
ues in the city have risen so high that it
has become too expensive for businesses
which normally locate in traditional
commercial strip centers. Much of the
commercial strip center located at the
corner of Atlantic Boulevard and
Penman Road has been vacant for years.
Empty retail space is also common for
other commercial strip centers in the
But Asensio said, at least for his com-
pany, that's not because businesses
"aren't knocking." He said that business-
es have been interested in moving into
Penman Plaza to the tune of "three to
five clients per month."

If there's water, you can bet on alligators
A postal employee helps,
unload a Post Office truck at
the post office. Workers at the
Mayport Road Post Office in
Atlantic Beach collected
17,468 pounds of food for the
needy during the U.S. Postal
Service food drive on
Saturday. Helping Hands, an
.antic Beach charity, will help
tribute the food.
There are more than a million alliga-
tors in Florida, but until recently your
chance of being bitten by one was less
than your chance of being struck by
Things are changing though, accord-
ing to a local public safety expert, as the
gator population is booming and devel-
opment is pushing people and gators
closer together while reducing the alliga-
tors' natural food supplies.
In the past week, three women have
been found killed by alligators in three
separate counties. In Gainesville, a
woman was apparently killed by a gator
while snorkeling. In Pinellas County, a
woman's body was found in a canal and
another woman's body was found in a
canal near Fort Lauderdale. In that
instance, the woman was jogging near
the canal and dragged into the water,
according to authorities.
Atlantic Beach Police Chief David
Thompson, the city's director of public
safety for 20 years, said such aggression
is unusual for an alligator, but he
explained a hungry alligator will chase
food. He noted that a few years ago, a
woman jogging on Atlantic Beach in
dusky conditions encountered an alliga-
"You're in Florida, [and] wherever
there is water, there are alligators, and
that is whether it is salt water or fresh,"
Thompson said Tuesday. Anyone who
doubts that, he said, needs only to look
at a body of water at night and note what
looks like red reflectors in the water.
Those, he said, are a gator's eyes reflect-
ing the light.
"There are literally millions of alliga-
tors in the state," Thompson said, noting
that the alligators are no longer endan-
gered.The once endangered alligator was
reclassified in 1987 by the US Fish and
Wildlife Service as "threatened due to
similarity of appearance." Beacause the
alligator looks so much like the still
endangered crocodiles, federal authori-
ties gave it the unique designation.

eventually retreat to more-preferred, isolated areas
away from people, according to the FWC's

to eliminate any confusion of:

don't just equal new service.

comprehensive insight into the

Arlington said transportation
planners must be aware of the
trickledown effect new routes
can have on the existing stops
by' causing time delays or trans-
fer changes for current riders.-
: "People do not change their
travel habits quickly. Seven to
10 routes could be affected,"
Arlington said. "We are cog-
nizant that any impact made on
our system may be [a rider's]
only way to get to their job."
Mark Slyter, administrator of
Baptist Medical Center Beaches
and a member of the Ponte
Vedra and Jacksonville Beach
Chambers, said many of his
staffers and patients, travel
between the hospital. campus
and medical offices in Ponte,
"We have offices in Ponte
Vedra and other areas that
would benefit from that type of
transportation as well, Slyter
said. : .

survey will also be developed to
identify the potential ridership
among staffers at the Marriott at
Sawgrass, the PGA tour head-
quarters and other significant
employers in the area.
Planners must also focus on
attracting riders who are not
forced to rely on public trans-
portation because the bus fares
contribute the majority of the
agency's revenue. ,
"The one thing that we don't
have is dedicated funding,"
Miller said. JTA receives limited
state and federal grants, the 75
fares represent 22.5 percent of
the agency's funding.
"There is very little money in
the budget to cover expanded
route services," he said. "We
have to find some way to make
up the other 80 percent."
Millet said the final step when
considering the installation of a
new service route is public
involvement. Once the feasibili-
ty study is complete, JTA offi-
cials will hold public meetings
,to create the final proposal.

To the editor:
The uproar over letting a

that we like the quality of life
more than the quantity of

seems that while we think
free markets are good for allo-

understand that it makes a

First, who should vote to
determine the outcome of the
I gather Mr. Gulliford favors
a property qualification to
vote, thereby excluding
renters but including absentee
landlords. This concept stems
frorn the -18th, century, when
Africans could be chattel and
white women lawfully. beaten
by their husbands or fathers.
Renters pay their fare, howev-
er short-lived their residence.
Absentee landlords' voting
their property is plutocratic,,
and without precedent in
modem America. If you live'
in Atlantic Beach, you should
be able to cast your vote on
any, municipal ballot.
'Second, should the out-
come of the "community
character" debate be applied
to all of Atlantic Beach?
It' was 'former Mayor John
Meserve's cohort on the
Atlantic Beach Commission
that started the "community
character" debate, appropriat-
ing $50,000 of the taxpayers'
money. My understanding is
that the core city, designated
Old Atlantic Beach, was the
source of complaints that led
the Meserve cohort to under-
write the Winter study. (I
attended the three "commu-
nity chats" held recently in
Donner, Marsh Oaks and
Jordan Park and the "commu-
nity character" subject was
not raised once.) In Meservist
lingo, a neighborhood must
clamor for inclusion, and no
other neighborhood has.
A free-market approach to
the issue is the principle of
"air rights," which makes the
government the guarantor of
the right of parties to make a
voluntary contract -- rather
than the government acting
as Big Brother, which actually
is what each side in this

Mdre than 50 rafts look part in the annual Milk Jug Race, a school-year-ending project by physics students.

Students entered in Fletcher High's
Milk lug Raft Race Monday afternoon
shared a common goal: to safely nav-
igate their homemade rafts across the
Jobin "WVimpy" Sutton pool as quickly
-,and as stylishly as possible.
One raft featured a pirate flag.
Another was christened the "S:S-.
lesus" because of its alleged ability to
walk on water.
One raft had a totem pole-like
object attached to its bow.
The 11th annual event challenged
physics students at the Neptune
Beach school to build and race a raft
using plastic jugs as its only flotation
"You have to use either 2- or 3-liter
bottles or gallon jugs," said Mike
Levine, a -'physics teacher at Fletcher
and the event's.founder.
"You can have a decking, material
of'anything you want, but that deck-
ing material cannot give you any

what is floating instead of the bot-

In the first heat, students racing
"Fair Lady" were unable toget their
balance and had to remove the craft
frctm the pool before the competition
S ll students are assured a grade of
at least 85 as long as they attempt to
ra6e something and turn in a journal
for the project, Levine said.
'"We try not to punish kids for par-
ticipating," he said.
One year, a Fletcher student
dumped a 50-gallon drum into the
popi and tried to ride it across.
"'He got on it and it rolled,"
-.""Ire never nradeit to'the starting
line, btut everybody had a good
laugh. The boats are everything from
people just latching the jugs together
to some pretty elaborate designs."
Monday's champions, Jared

One innovation the winning team
added was to compress the air in
their 2-liter bottles by putting the
uncapped containers into the freezer.
After a couple of hours, they
removed the bottles and attached
them to the boat.

higher in the water," Baldwin said.
"So it provides less resistance, and
it will go even faster."

I always found the time to
Cook for their family, and
now that they are so-called
"empty nesters," they still
prefer eating well-prepared
meals at home.
"If you're going to sit down
to eat, you might as well eat
good," said John Mahoney,
vice president of Mergers and
Acquisitions with Allen C.
Ewing & Co.
Wife Sherry is a dietician
and director of the nutrition
department and the intern-
ship program at the Mayo
Family dinners were the
norm while the couple's two
college-age daughters were
still at home.
The family regularly
enjoyed a home-cooked din-
ner served by candlelight
with music playing around 7
This was a chance for the
family to relax after a day at
school or work, Sherry said.
"The whole day just lifts off
you and you can really wind
down." she added.
As the girls grew older and
the family's needs changed,
Sherry said her husband
became more involved with
the daily meal preparation.
This worked very well as he
had developed an interest in
cooking during the years he
had lived in New Orleans.
While he was a student at
Tulane University, Mahoney
.;:. said that.he-quickly found:
thht-dinifig at restaurants was:'
too expensive and fast food
was just not an option.
Good food is part of the
culture of New Orleans, and
Mahoney easily became swept
up in it.
"It's just a tradition there
for guys to talk about food.
It's almost like another major
league sport," he added.
Most weekday nights,
Mahoney handles the cook-
ing responsibilities, either for
the whole family when the
girls are home or for himself
Friday and Saturday nights
are designated for trying new
recipes. The couple has a col-
lection of close to 50 cook-
books, including some by two
of John's favorite chefs, Paul
Prudhomme and Jacques
Sherry's influence on keep-
ing their diet healthy is obvi-"
ous. She prefers lean cutsof.
meat, poultry or seafood
which they frequently enjoy
grilled. Vegetables and salads
accompany the main course,
and if pasta is included they
choose whole grain varieties.
To make salads more inter-
esting and nutritious, Sherry
adds fresh or dried fruit,
pecans, walnuts, or sunflower
seeds. The salads.are dressed
with vinaigrette dressings
made with the more healthful.
varieties of oils.
One of the couple's favorite
vegetable dishes is J.T.'s
Famous Italian Spinach. The,
recipe is John's version of
spinach dishes served in two
Italian restaurants from their
hometown of Memphis.
This dish is so delicious
that John said that he would
have liked spinach as a child
if he had been served this.
He adds Lbuisiana style sea-
sonings to two classic recipes,
Boeuf Burguignon and
Crevettes avec Nouilles
(Shrimp with Noodles), to
give them new flavor.
John's version of Beef
Burgundy has subtle' heat
from the use of three types of
ground pepper for seasoning.
It is important to include all
three types, he said, as each is
tasted on different parts of
In -the shrimp dish, the
three types of pepper are used
along with paprika, thyme
and basil to season the veg-
etables and shrimp. The
seafood stock is easy to make
after shelling the shrimp. Boil,
the shells with some'basic
vegetables for less than a half
hour. Any extra stock freezes
well for future use.
Sherry's Coated Pecans add
crunch and a touch of sweet-
ness-to salads. A few simple
ingredients 'and about 10
minutes in the oven and the
pecans are ready for salads,
snacking, or other uses. '
Fresh salmon marinated in,
a Maple Mustard Glaze takes
on extra flavor from grilling
on a cedar plank. The
Mahoneys also enjoy simply
prepared grilled or pan-seared
tuna served'over salad greens
dressed with a homemade
Wasabi Vinaigrette Dressing.

The winning raft was a simple rec-

made of PVC pipe.
"The most complicated designs
race is their reward at the end.
Due to the spirit of innovation, the
teachers are forced to rewrite the
rules each year as students are con-
stantly pushing the boundaries.
Levine said that encouraging cre-
ative thinking is part of the goal of
"Our job is to write the rules, and
their job as thinking students is to
figure out a way around the rules,"

Porch Swings Are Always In Style
The porch has been a part of our
dwellings since prehistoric times,
when overhanging rocks were used
for shelter. The word "porch" comes
from the Latin, porticus, and the
Greek, portico, which described a
cathedral's vestibule, where wor-
shippers gathered to socialize after
services. The porch first appeared in
the Americas early in the 18th cen-
tury, and, within a hundred years,
became a standard feature on most
By the Victorian era, the age of
the porch was in full swing liter-

ing had made '
outdoor furniture ,
and affordable, "
and the porch
swing was in high : .
demand. In spite ..
of its simple,
ance, it had an
light-hearted reverie, all who suc-
cumbed to its charm seemed to
walk away with rosier outlooks.
Famed in song and story, the porch
swing has also gotten credit for
sparking countless romances.
In the 21st century, we are still
captivated by the porch swing,
which has worked its way so deeply
into the fabric of our culture that
it's hard to find anyone who does-
n't own one, or have fond memo-
ries of one. In fact, its popularity is
increasing, as today's hectic
lifestyles create the yearning for a
more carefree time.
Fortunately, you can have the
best of both worlds. With one of the
largest selections of porch swings
available, everything from classic,
fiand-crafted wood swings, to gor-
geous porch swings made from
polywood, and a new, synthetic
"wicker" that looks authentic, but,
like your memories, is virtually
indestructible. In styles from rustic
to elegant, every porch swing is
crafted for ultimate comfort.
Furthermore, even if you don't
have a porch, you can still enjoy a
swing by getting a durable swing
stand for your deck, patio, or yard.

Petitt wins season's first sprint triathlon
By ROBERT DeANGELO
Atlantic Beach's Steve Petitt is
a third of the way toward his
goal of winning the overall
men's title in this year's Beaches
Fine Arts Series Triathlons.
Petitt. 45, won last Saturday's
race, the first of this season's
three events. Petitt's time of
54:05 was 14 seconds better
than second-place finisher
Richard Sumrall. Chris Huff, 32,
took third in 56 minutes flat.
Petitt, who was in ninth place
following the quarter-mile
ocean swim, made up a great
deal of ground in the 11.5-mile
bike race, completing the
course in 25:52 to grab the over-
A 3.1-mile run in 19:16

triathlon competitor his first
BFAS victory in almost five
Sumrall, of Mary Esther, was
the first man out of the water
Saturday completing the sea
swim in six minutes and 30 sec-
onds. After the bicycle race,
Sumrall tailed Petitt by 81 sec-
onds. The 41-year-old managed
to close the gap by clocking
18:09 in the run.
After the race, both Petitt and
Sumrall indicated their inten-
tions to compete in the two
remaining Lifestyles Realtors
BFAS triathlons this season.
Those events are slated to take
place June 10 and July 8 at

"My first goal was to finish,"
said the 34-year old, who wore
his old uniform number, 71,
written in grease paint on his
arm. "After I began training, my
goal became to do it in under
an hour and 20 minutes. I'm
thrilled because I achieved that
and really, I went much faster
than I thought I could."
Boselli's time of 1:10:08 put
him in 14th place in his age
The former Jaguars star com-
pleted the swim in 9:43, the
bicycle race in 32:58 and the
run in 24:41.
Danny Domingo, who had
dominated the BFAS sprint
triathlons for the past several
seasons, did not participate in
Saturday's event and has not
pre-registered for the season's
final two races.

pleted the course in 1:24:01.
Dorion, 72, finished in 1:44:59.
At the other end of the spec-

Fans, teammates wil
miss Jimmy Smith
Photo by ROB DeANGELO
Jaguars wide receiver Jimmy Smith celebrates a catch last sea-
son. Smith stunned fans and teammates late last week when he
announced his retirement on the eve of Jaguars' mini-camp.
By REX EDMONDSON
Jaguars fans and coaches have
suffered several severe losses in
the past decade, but none com-
pares with the departure of
Jimmy Smith, one of the prime
receivers in modem NFL annals.
Smith wasn't just a great
receiver, "who could make
things happen," as former team-
mate and long time Jaguar quar-
terbackMark Brunell put it, he
was an inspiration to his team,
the coaches and the fans.
Some years ago we penned the
description of his catches and
runs as "the KingJames Version."
Jimmy said he loved it. But he
never said much in vanity. He
wasn't the type to blow his own
horn much. But he was human
and he wanted his genius appre-
There were times when he
might have shown, off a bit,
much to the dismay of old time
fans who liked their football
straight, not as a vaudeville act.
But anything Jimmy did on
the field or off (charge of drug
usage, but nothing else) could be
forgiven by those who loved his
talent and the way he let the
enemy know that when he was
in the lineup, they'd better
beware he could beat them
almost by himself.
Not being privy to his inner
thoughts or the battle he must
have had with himself over the
act of retirement, it's hard to say
whether he made the right deci-
sion at this time.
One thing is sure his
absence from the Jaguars will
hurt. It will hurt the team, in
more ways than one. It will hurt
in their chase for the elusive
Super Bowl. It will hurt at the
gate and anything that hurts
paid admissions, hurts owner
Wayne Weaver, who has been
struggling ever since 2000.
On a personal basis,
it hurts the media. /^i
Jimmy Smith was
an oasis of opti- /

Instant Air Conditioning & Heating
Offers Tips to Prepare Your Unit
for This Year's Hurricane Season
It's not too early to prepare for the upcoming hur-
ricane season, and the professionals at Instant Air
Conditioning & Heating in Atlantic Beach have
some pre-storm tips to keep you and your air con-
ditioning unit safer.
Instant Air Conditioning & Heating owner Eddy
recommends several items to help you protect your
home. "Surge protectors can guard against equip-
ment damage due to lightening strikes, brown-outs
and power surges," he said, "and digital program-
mabre and non-programmable thermostats with
built-in time delays can keep your compressor from
In addition, hurricane straps now required per
new building codes can secure your condenser
unit, and zinc anodes help protect against salt air
corrosion and electrolyses. Also, in the event of
hurricane evacuation, remember to turn off all your
utilities and electrical breakers before you leave,"
Tips like these are just part of what makes the
professionals at Instant Air Conditioning & Heating
different. "We're proud of the top-quality profes-
sional services we offer our customers," savs Eddy.
"We're equally proud of our straightforward pricing,
our 100-percent in-writing satisfaction guarantee,
our Seal of Safety program and our Service Club
membership program bonuses that few air condi-
tioning contractors are able to offer."
According to Eddy, not all air conditioning con-
tractors are the same. "Some don't specialize in the
repair or replacement of older systems, or may carry
just one brand," he said. "Others offer services only
during the busy season and are not fully staffed vear
round. Some ek'en fail to show up on fime or dbn't
show when they say they will a real frustration for
today's busy customers."
Family-owned and operated, Instant Air
Conditioning & Heating serves Beaches residences
and businesses from Mayport to Ponte Vedra and in
nearby Intracoastal West. Their staff includes co-
owneis Eddv and Dee and their son Craig plus com-
fort advisor' Ed Edwards. Sissy serves as the compa-
ny's endearing canine mascot. Dee and Eddy have
been married 38 years, and son Craig just returned
from a tour of duty in Iraq. With more than 40 yeors
of combined experience among them, they run their
"We specialize in service on all air conditioning
brands new or old," says Eddy. "In fact, our trucks
carry 97 percent of the critical components found in
Instant Air also diagnoses your air conditioner
and provides an up-front estimate of repair costs
from their Professional Service Institute's Straight
Forward Pricing guide. The diagnosis goes beyond
explaining repair costs. It gives you, the customer,
"We have a clear and concise way to show you
.whether or notyou will need to replace your air con-
ditioner," savs co-owner Dee. "We provide, options.
for you, tailored to your individual situation, budg-
et and schedule arid we do this in writing."
Even Instant Air's repair service is guaranteed in
writing, says Eddy. "In short, your equipment is
Fixed Fast, Fixed Right, and if we have to come
back because the repair failed during the season, we
will repair it again absolutely free!" he explains.
Sound too good to be true? "At Instant Air we are
committed to your complete satisfaction," says Dee,
"and we have a written, easy-to-understand 100%6
Satisfaction Guarantee for all service, repair and
replacement." Here's what it says:
With their motto "Fixed Fast, Fixed Right@," the comfort spe-
cialists at Instant Air Conditioning & Heating in Atlantic Beach
are dedicated to providing Beaches customers top-notch
service for all air conditioning brands... old and new.
Pictured above are Eddy and Dee.

repair fails during the season, we wil repair it again

cooling service work in your home have passed a
criminal background check. "In fact, we'll even e-
mail you a photo of our technician scheduled to
service your home so you'll know exactly who to
expect at the time of your appointment," adds Eddy.

the Ravines has, them a plenty.,
The well-manicured golf'
course is one of the most beau-
tiful around and creates a
thrilling, challenging and very
enjoyable venue for what can
dnly be described as genuine. ,
Runners should feel lucky to
have it, after all, there aren't,
many golf courses that will
turn over their coveted turf,
and watch a couple of hun-
died runners tear across their
fairways. It is a once-a-year
opportunity that should be
,taken advantage of by all run-
ners and walkers.
The Ravines Ru'n features
age group awards, a team com-
petition, $400 in prize money '
and custom T-shirts to all par-,
ticipants. Afterward, there is a
BBQ dinner, drinks and swim-
ming pool party with live

lowest combined score-race
time plus golf score-wins a spe-

awarded as every man who '
runs under 20 minutes and all
women. who break 24 minutes
