The commission two weeks

pavers he installed in the city
right of way during a recent
renovation project at his prop-

The Atlantic Beach City
Commission Monday made it
clear that short term rentals are
illegal in the city, despite com-
ments from the mayor and
Realtors that the law can and
will be circumvented.
Renting residential properties
for less than 90 days has long
been against the law in Atlantic
Beach, say city officials. But the
commission at its meeting
Monday unanimously approved
a new ordinance that "clarifies"'
that point. They did so at the
recommendation of city staff
which said the city code address-
ing the issue was "hard to deci-
But some Realtors and even
Mayor Don Wolfson at the
meeting said that the code will
be difficult to enforce.
"I think there's an opportuni-
ty here for circumvention

WVolfson said. "There's no

A standing room-only crowd
packed the community room
at the Neptune Beach Library
Thursday for information
needed to prepare for this
year's upcoming hurricane sea-
About 150 people attended
the hurricane planning meet-
ing sponsored by the commu-
nity group Beaches Watch.
The two-hour program fea-
tured presentations by
Jacksonville Beach Fire Chief
Gary Frazier, Neptune Beach
Police Chief David Sembach
and Jacksonville Beach police
Lt. Steve Corbitt.
Marty Senterfitt of the Duval
County Emergency Operations
Center and Tiffany Reeves of
the state Department of
Financial Services also attend-
"We are not here to see what
to do in case a hurricane hits,"
Sembach said. "We are here to

Frazier, who came to
Jacksonville Beach from
Kansas, has experience dealing
with natural disasters. As the
former Battalion Chief of the
Wichita Fire Department, he
encountered several major tor-
nadoes, one of which carved a
path of destruction over half a
mile wide through the city.
Hurricanes, he said, create a
larger area of devastation than
a tornado but they also offer
something that the spiraling
storm systems do not plan-
"The biggest thing you are
going to get out of this is plan-
ning and preparation," he told
those attending the meeting.
"Fortunately we have been
spared any significant damage
over the last two years. There is
a tremendous amount of infor-

The ordinance provides that
"short term rentals shall be
considered to be 'commercial
uses' as are hotel, motel,
motor lodge, resort rental, bed
and breakfast or tourists court
uses" all of which are illegal
in residential areas. It adds
that short term rentals are
prohibited in private homes
such as "single family homes,
town homes, duplexes, condo-

thing that was not addressed

Monday's meeting, however,
that those wishing to rent
their property short term will

leases that have no penalty for
violations of that time period.
"How are you going to
enforce that," deCarle said.
Wolfson agreed, saying that
property owners could actual-

will fulfill promise
The former Flag Pavilion hosted youth basket-
ball games and antique shows, as the director of
the Jacksonville beach Community
'Redevelopment Agency recalled last week.
The building sat one block off the beach,
empty much of the time as a mix of bad acoustics
and an unfortunate match between design and
p[iurpose created far from optimal demand for the
building. Nevertheless, it was home to many' con-
certs,' trade shows, community programs and
:' N the nearest venues are the community
rooms at the Beach libraries -both of which can
handle a much smaller crowd.
Hours of operation also limit what is offered. A
hurricane preparedness program at the Beaches
Public Library was filled to capacity last week and
the crowd had to be hurried out as the library
closes at 8 p.m.
Since the Flag Pavilion was razed, the Beaches
have lacked a central spot for community gather-
ings of any import or size. City fathers promised
a replacement when the pavilion was destroyed.
It has taken longer than expected but plans are
proceeding to build a community center at a'
south Jacksonville Beach park. Last week the city
agreed to spend the money' needed "to determine
the scope of the community center project."
The expenditure should allow the city to make
'good on its promise to residents. A well-designed
community center also promises to provide a
much needed gathering spot for community pro-'
A place where residents can come together and
use the facilities for mutually beneficial civic pur-
poses is an investment in the community.

All property should be protected
To the editor:
As a resident of Atlantic
Beach, I have been following'
the recent developments
regarding the Winter Report
I am frustrated with the
assertions that all supporters
of Save Atlantic Beach are
only focused on property val-'
ues, maximum building, and
using their homes as a "401k".
I have been a resident of
Atlantic Beach for over 10
years. I currently live in an
older home on a nice sized
lot. I have no desire to build a
"McMansion" on my proper-
ty. I am not excited about the
possibility of my neighbors
building such structures.
However, I feel very strongly
that it is not the city's right to
dictate to me what I can build
on the property that I have
worked so hard for. This is my
I also feel that it is not the
city's right, or mine to dictate
to my neighbors what they
can build on their lots. After
attending several Of the Save
Atlantic Beach meetings, city
commission meetings, the
recent town hall meeting and
reading the ordinance, I can
say that I am against this ordi-
nance and think our city lead-
ers need to begin again. This
is also the position that Save
Atlantic Beach stated in the
town hall meeting. Everyone
wants our community to
remain unique, but accusing
those who refuse to accept
this ridiculously stringent
ordinance of only wanting to
use their homes as a bank
account is unjust.
I am also alarmed at the tac-
tics that the city commission-
ers and the mayor have taken
trying to minimize support
for Save Atlantic Beach by
declaring that the only people
who should be concerned,
heard, and considered are
those who .live in old Atlantic
Beach. I attended the town
meeting when the "change"
in the ordinance so that it
only includes old Atlantic
Beach was announced. I only
hope that I am in attendance
when the "change" putting
my property back in the
included boundaries occurs.
My interest is in the city as an
entirety, not just my home or
my street. Our community
focus should be to work
together, not to divide and
This is an emotional issue
on both sides with the poten-
tial to cause much discord
among neighbors. It is my
sincere hope that our commu-
nity can work through our
differences on this issue and
come to a reasonable compro-

constant threat of mortars,
rockets, car bombs, and gun-

The lifting of spirits from the
beginning of college football
season was amazing.

express their fandom more

Class of 2006
win contest, visit

to meet men
There are more than half a million,
single young-men in Scotland, and
-27-year-old Lauren Spencer, a
Jacksonville Beach resident, is going
to meet the 20 hottest in their natural
Spencer, 27, who won a three-day
trip to Scotland this week with her
identical twin sister, expects to meet
some of Scotland's most eligible bach-
She was one of more than 20,000
women who voted for a favorite Hot
Scot on www.dateahotscot.com,, a
promotional campaign website for
S VisitScotland, the official arm of the
Scottish Tourist Board. During the
campaign, which ran from
Valentine's Day through March 31,
Visitors were introduced to sexy
Scottsmen via photographs, personal
profiles and video interviews and
allowed to choose their favorite kilt-
clad hunk- thus entering themselves
in a sweepstakes to win a trip, along
with a lucky lady friend, to visit the
Hot Scots on their native soil. The
contest was open only to women.
One winner was drawn at random
from each of the six eligible countries:
LiSA, France, Germany, Netherlands,
Sweden and Spain.
Lauren Spencer, who received the
link in an e-mail from her sister,
Kristen, thought the website was
cheek), and funny and happily cast
The e-mail link was also sent to a
coworker of Lauren's. The coworker
won the trip and quickly asked
Lauren to accompany her before
realizing the dates of the trip conflict-
ed with the coworker's honeymoon.
Contest organizers agreed to Lauren
coming in her stead and she said it
was petty easy to decide to ask her
sister along, since she had originally
alerted all to the contest. Doing
things together is nothing new, as the
Spencer sisters, who attended Fletcher
High School and Florida State
Pr,e SU eI-rTED
Lauren Spencer, left, and her identical twin sister Kristen will meet with
Scotland's most eligible bachelors this week as part of a prize package won
University together, are also room-
"We're roommates so I really could-
n't go without her noticing," said
Lauren, who works for an advertising
and public relations firm. Kristen
works at Neptune Beach Baptist
The Spencers, representing the
United States, will join with represen-
tatives from the other countries for a
variety of activities, including recep-
tions, including one with the men
wearing kilts, Lauren said, acknowl-
edging the age-old undergarments
question and noting "I'll report back."
The four-day/ three-night trip will
take the twins to Edinburgh, where
they can explore historical land-
marks, museums, and the under-
ground streets of Mary King's Close -
said to be the most haunted place in
Edinburgh -- and Glasgow, the largest
shopping centre in the UK outside of
London. Also included, a welcome
and farewell party during which the
ladies will get to meet all of their
favorite Hot Scots.
"I'm hoping I can get through this
trip without causing an international
incident," said Lauren. "Scottish
accents are an auditory version of
beer goggles, and these guys are
already dangerously good looking
with their mouths shut. It would cer-
tainly put a damper on. the trip to be
drummed up on kidnapping charges
for trying to sneak one home."
Although voting has ended and the
winners have been chosen from
www.DateaHotScot.com, which was
part of www.ToScotland.com.
Lauren cast her vote for Stuart
Duncan, a marketing and operations
controller for XFM Scotland Radio
Station with a slight Star Wars fixa-
tion. He came in 7th place with 1,458
votes, ahead of the reserved skipper
for the 2006 Olympic Curling team
and behind a water buffalo farmer.
Craig Irving, a 27-year-old business
development manager, took top hon-
ors with 3,325 votes.

Dorothy Johnson holds her namesake award, the Johnson Medallion, with University of North Florida dean Dr. Larry Daniel.
Johnson can't say
no to alma mater
by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
D orothy Johnson is a pushover
when it comes to volunteering.
"I'm one of those people who cantt say
no," Johnson, an 85-year-old Neptune
Beach resident, said.
"I'm trying to slow down, but they
won't let me."
They, meaning the University of North
Florida's Alumni Association.
They might .also include the Beaches,
Area Historical Society and the Friends of
the Beaches Library.
Johnson is a past board member of the
latter two organizations, tallying a dozen
years on each. She's also a 30-year board
member of UNF's Alumni Association
who has attended nearly every important
event at the school, including. 21,
"I love my university," said Johnson,
who earned her first college degree from
UNF at age 54 and her second at age 62.
Army officer's wife
Johnson was a freshman at Agnes Scott
College in Decatur, Ga., when she met
Georgia Tech student Daniel Johnson.
She married young and never finished
college, raising seven children as the wife
of an Army artillery officer.
When her husband, a retired colonel,
suffered a stroke in the early 1970s,
Johnson's role as a homemaker expanded
to include breadwinner.
"When you have children depending
on you and you know your husband is
dying, it's very frightening," Johnson
"I knew I had to do something."
So the mother of seven went back to
school using her husband's G.I. benefits,
graduating in 1974 from UNF with a
bachelor's degree in English literature..
A month after she received her diplo-.
ma, her husband of 34 years died at age
"He wasn't able to attend my gradua-
tion," recalled Johnson, who still lives in-
the same house 'she and her husband
purchased in Neptune Beach in 1970.
After her husband's funeral at
Arlington National/ Cemetery, Johnson
Sound work teaching English as a second
language at Florida Community College
Her pay increased by $1 an hour when
she received her master's degree in allied
heath from UNF.
Osprey Club booster
Johnson taught junior college classes
for almost seven years until her children
were grown. ,
She began volunteering with UNF's
Alumni Association in. 1976 and has
been an active booster of the school's
athletic program for the past 22 years,.
"I love the students, the envoys partic-
ularly," said lohnson, who lived in Japan
and England while her husband was sta-
"I'm a big booster of-UNF athletics
because you can't get into UNF as an ath-
lete unless you have a high grade-point
average. The graduation percentage
among athletes is higher than the stu-
dent body average."
Two of Johnson's daughters graduated
from UNF with master's degrees. Her son,
Daniel, who earned a law degree from
Emory University in Atlanta, has : been
the U.S. Ambassador to Suriname for the
past six years,..
"Between them, my children have
,about 15 degrees," said Johnson, who
has nine grandchildren and four great-
"When I make up my Christmas list, T
have 29 peot le, not counting in-laws."
Johnson doesn't forget UNF at gift-giv-
ing time, either.
Over the past 30 years, she has made
more than 100 donations to the univer-
And the school hasn't forgotten her
gifts nor her time and dedication.
In, February, the UNF Alumni
Association established the inaugural
Dorothy G. Johnson Medallion for out-
The award isn't Johnson's only lasting-
achievement at UNE.
Three years ago, she helped establish
an endowed scholarship in the College of
Education and Human. Services. ,
The Dorothy G. Johnson Family and
Friends endowment recently awarded its
first scholarship to a U.S. Marine major-
ing in education at UNF. .
Johnson said the endowment is up to
$19,000 and. as soon as it reaches
$25,000, the state will match it.
When she's riot attending quarterly
meetings of the Alumni Association,

Gateway football jamboree

Raines returned the ensuing
kickoff by Taylor Wyman 89
yards for a score, but failed to
convert on a 2-point pass
attempt as time expired.
The Vikings also had a 38-

need a lead back. He's good at
picking holes and has great feet
to dart up in there."
Fletcher also has a bevy of
wideouts to throw to, a sea-
soned quarterback in McCann
(866 passing yards) and a
change-of-pace tailback in the
form of speedy Deschion
Baskerville, who rushed for 309
yards and three TDs in spot
duty last season.
Guidry, who also calls the
defensive signals for Fletcher at
inside linebacker, rushed for
572 yards as a junior with six
TDs and an 8.8 yard average.
Scott (11 receptions for 178
yards) is Fletcher's top return-
ing pass catcher. The receiving
corps also features rising fresh-
man Lamar Scruggs, junior
Dustin Dixon and O'Hara, a
shutdown corner on defense

Fletcher's tackling skills were
a little rusty against Raines,
but Sean Johnston and Jason

Fletcher's pass rush was also
a bright spot on defense with

Highsmith event brings together beach legends
By CHUCK ADAMS
By nearly any measure, the
ninth annual' Highsmith
Memorial Tournament, played
in Jacksonville Beach over the
weekend, was a tremendous suc-
The event brought together
those who played with and
against Mike Highsmith, the
beach volleyball legend who
died in a dirt bike accident in
Colorado in 1997, as well as oth-
ers who considered him a friend
and many who knew him only
A total of 39 teams, including
some in the Legends divisions,
played Saturday on the 10 per-
manent courts adjacent to the
Jacksonville Beach pier.
"It's going good," tournament
director Jay Miller said of this
year's Jacksonville Beach
Volleyball, now two-events old.
"Things are improving as we go,
and we have a lot of big changes
coming on. The July tourna-

"[It's] a lot of work, but I think
it's going to be worth it," said
Miller, who has run tourna-

brought Engle Homes, KISS FM
and DX Marketing aboard.
Next year will mark the 10th
annual Highsmith Memorial
and family members of the late
volleyball icon plan to host a
party for those who knew Mike.
"It's just unbelievable these
guys still want to get together
just to honor their buddy," said
Highsmnith's mother, Francine
Susie Mashour, who, with sis-
ter Terri finished runner-up in
Women's AA, started playing
beach volleyball just last sum-
mer. She never knew Highsmith,
but certainly knows about him.
"He's a legend, was a great vol-
leyball player and everybody
appreciates him," said Mashour.
"That's why this is dedicated to

Open with Scott Perry, was com-

"I was kind of scrubby back
then, just learning the game.
And he was one of the better
players out here," Poppel said.
"But he would play with you
and try to help you out.
Some of Highsmith's contem-
poraries relish the event as a
chance to take to the sands once
"It's good to come out here,"
said Terry Knight, runner-up in
Legends with Paul Bathen,
"because a lot of the guys who
don't play anymore, they're
back and playing. And a lot of

them were A\TP level at that
point. Rocky [Morsch] and

"It's fun. They trash talk.
People come from out of town.
So it's different than other tour-
naments," added Knight.

forming at Second City and
Improv, also was one of the

the other team. And we started
winning games from that
point," said Carson, who had
been playing volleyball for about
two months at that time. "If
