Home premiums


will double here,


Sen. King predicts


by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
Property insurance rates will like-
ly be drastically increased this year
for Floridians, including those here
at the Beaches, according to Sen.
Jim King (R), who Monday spoke to
the Beaches Business Association
about that and other issues facing
the state.
And those property owners who
will'face the increases are the lucky
ones, as the District 8 representa-
tive says, noting that many other
Floridians aren't even able to get
policies for their homes.
"Come October, your property
insurance will more than double in
premium," King told members of
the Beaches Business Association at
their monthly meeting at the
Jacksonville Beach Golf Courses
19th Hole.
"We have a real genuine problem
and it's going to get worse."

Fletcher High
School will host
its annual walk-
through for reg-
istered students
and has'set up a
schedule for
students to fol-
low.
According to
Bill Monk of the
school's Instructional Support
Team, students will be given ID
cards, lockers, schedules and other
information relating to the 2006-
2007 school year at the walk-
through.
"This is the fastest and most effi-
cient way to start school on day
one." Monk said.
Students may not come early, he
said, as materials for walk-through
will not be ready until the
appointed times. Students who
cannot be present may not send a
friend to do the walk-through for
them.
Only parents with appropriate
photo ID may substitute for the
student, Monk said, adding that
no deviations frorU this schedule


are possible.
Students who are new to the dis-
trict or to the school should first
register with the Guidance
Department at .least three days
prior to walk-through, with the
exception of those students who
normally would come to Fletcher
from Mayport Middle School or

The schedule is as follows: *

Fireworks burn hole in pier


Still open

to fishermen

but end,

deepest

water, is still

off-limits for

a couple

more weeks

STAFF WRITER
Police in Jacksonville Beach police confiscated hun-
dreds of personal fireworks on the 4th of July but the
biggest holiday misfire occurred at the pier when part of
the city's professional display burned a hole through the
deck.
The fishing pier at 5th Avenue North is open for busi-
ness but the t-shaped deck at the end of the 1,300-foot
structure will remain closed until contractors can replace
the boards damaged in the blast.
Van Hogan of Ed Waters & Sons estimated that the pier
would be fully operational next week after the contract-
ing firm replaces one section of decking.
"We've got the material ordered but we don't have it
in hand yet," Hogan said of the three-by-six boards
required to patch two large holes at either end of the' pier
and one small one in the middle.
"The lumber size is
not a typical stock .s

north bay rather than j'st a feW'ifo~rds.
Pyro Shows of LaFollette, Tenn. was awarded a $10,000
contract to provide a 15-minute fireworks display from
the end of the pier to get more bang for the buck using
larger shells up to 6-inches in diameter for increased vis-
ibility.
This is not the first 4th of July fizzle for Pyro Shows
who has provided fireworks for the city's Independence
Day festivities for several years.
The pyrotechnics firm had problems in 2003 when the
equipment did not get set up in time to produce the full
$10,000 display. City officials paid only half of the cost
to compensate for half of a show.
Jacksonville Beach Fire Marshall Ryan McAvoy specu-
lated that the damage was caused when one of the shells
exploded before it was fully out of the mortar tube, blast-
ing two large holes approximately four feet wide.
"That sometimes happens," said McAvoy, who was at
the scene during the launch. "We did not see anything
unusual."
No one was injured during the blast, he said. Pyro
Shows will pay for the repairs which are estimated to
cost $7,000.
Tom Trechel, who works at the pier, said Tuesday that
anglers have been unable to utilize the t-shaped deck
since the pier closed July 2 to begin setting up for the
annual fireworks display.
"We have a lot of king fishermen that usually use the
deck so it's definitely affecting business," he said.
Hogan assured anglers that the firm is doing every-
thing they can to complete the work so deep water fish-
ing can resume.
"We're working on it," he said. ."That last 3Q feet
makes all the difference."


Former JB city manager turns 104


Former Jacksonville Beach City Manager Clare Swanson recently turned
104 and stays active.


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA. LEADER EDITOR
When Clare Swanson resigned from
her job with the city of Jacksonville
Beach for health reasons in June 1951,
the City Council expressed "sincere
hope that the relief from her duties as
city manager will enable her to have a
long, continued happy, peaceful and
comfortable life."
On Sunday, 55 years after the coun-
cil OK'd that resolution, Mrs.
Swanson marked her. 104th birthday
with a gathering of family and friends
at her longtime home in the Palm
Valley area.
She said at her home Tuesday that
she feels her age. She spoke as she
took a break from working a jigsaw
puzzle and watching TV.
But, she said, she refuses to be
"entirely incapacitated."
"I want to have fun and tell off-
color stories," she said.


Mrs. Swanson likely accumulated
many real-life stories from her years
growing up in Chicago, her early mar-
ried life in Columbia, S.C., and her
decades in the Jacksonville area,
where she and her husband moved
after the birth of their first child.
When she was about 20 and still
single, she said, she worked as a pur-
chasing agent for the Jewel Tea
Company, a Chicago direct-sales and
catalog company that sold household
products from 1901 until 1981.
The life of a wife and mother, how-
ever, was not quite to her liking.
"I was bored with staying at home"
and playing bridge, Mrs. Swanson
said with a sparkle in her eyes behind
rose-tinted glasses.
She said she applied for an office job
with the city' of Jacksonville Beach
after an assistant in the clerk's office
got sick.
Jacksonville Beach, incorporated in


1907 as Pablo Beach, had OK'd a city
manager form of government in 1938,
and Mrs. Swanson became secretary to
the first city manager, J.Q. Palmer,
according to minutes of Jacksonville
Beach City Council meetings.
Although the first city manager was
on the job more than eight years,
those that followed had relatively
short stays in the job, with at least one
getting caught up in a time of "chaos"
and "political upheaval," according to
newspaper accounts of the time.
And through it all, Mrs. Swanson
was there to fill in as city manager in
the bustling, growing municipality on
the Atlantic Ocean.
The council appointed her acting
city manager when Palmer became ill
in May 1946.

Parking space challenge by gym


owners puts off vote on Freebird


by JEFFREY MINTON
SSTAFF WRITER
A decision whether, to, allow
Freebird Live to operate within
an Atlantic Beach entertain-
ment theater was deferred
Monday after, parking issues
.ere brought up by a soon-to-
be neighboring business.
And at least two on the City
Commission say they are
uncomfortable with a concert
venue and all that's associated
with it loud music,. rowdy
crowds and drunk patrons -
operating adjacent to residen-
tial-properties.
Freebird Live owner Judy
Jenness was asked by the City
Commission at its meeting to
address some of the issues
before a decision is made on
whether to allow her to operate
.the business in the Atlantic
Theaters at 75-1 Atlantic
Boulevard. Had the, commis-
sion voted and denied her
request Monday, Jenness would
riot'have been able to reapply
for one year, per city code.' ,
Jenness, who currently oper-,
ates Freebird Live in
Jacksonville Beach, is interested
in moving the business to the
Atlantic Theaters site because it:
will allow for a larger stage and.
dressing rooms something
shesays the national music acts
which she books require. She
also said she would like to
increase the crowd capacity of
her business a "little bit" from
690 at the current location in
Jacksonville Beach's downtown
to an estimated 1,000 at the,
proposed Atlantic Beach site. '
But the owners of Bailey's
Powerhouse Gym are 'con-
structing a new, 18,000-square-
: foot gym on a parcel adjacent
to the theater in the 700 block
of Atlantic Boulevard. And
owners David Bailey and Darryl
Bailey said Monday that the
proposed Freebird project, per
city code, is short roughly 240-
parking spaces.
"I really think you're going
to create a parking problem,".
David Bailey told commission-
ers, adding that the shortage of
parking would hurt his and
other adjacent businesses by
taking away spaces.
But the city staff disagreed
that the proposed Freebird Live,
would lack parking. g.,
Rolice Chief -_, '.,id
Thompson' recently sent' his
officers to the parcel and adja-
cent areas to count the avail-
able parking spaces during dif-
S.ferent times of the day on
weekdays and weekends.
Thompson Monday said that
his staff figured that there are
roughly 335 parking spaces in
the area which includes the

one parking space for, every

proposed. Freebird Live would
need about 250 spaces which
is more than accommodated
for, given the city staff's count
of 335 spaces being available.

Hard-core acts

getting the ax

The owner of Freebird Live
has said she is no longer
booking hard core acts at the
concert venue in an effort to
not attract the rowdy crowds
typically associated with such
music.
"We do stay away from any
hard core music ... we don't
do that anymore," Judy
Jenness, owner of Freebird
Live, told the Atlantic Beach,
City Commission Monday.
Jenness is seeking to move
her concert club into the
Atlantic Theaters in Atlantic,
Beach and needs a Use-by-"
Exception from the commis-
sion.
Fteebird Live, which is cur-
rently located in Jacksonville
Beach, in recent year has
hosted a wide variety of musi-
cal acts from country and
bluegrass to heavy metal. .
Also,. the 'club regularly
hosts nights featuring local'
punk and hard core metal
acts which typically draw a
Younger, wilder crowd.
However, Jenness said that,
hard core crowds have caused
the business problems and
that she does not want to
deal with it anymore. She did
not define what she meant by
hard core.


Freebird Live will take away
spaces from their future cus-
tomers., :,
"We're going to need every
bit of our parking," Darryl
Bailey said, adding that his
company has already invested
over $1 million in the facility.
He said that most of the
parking which the city is
.counting toward the proposed
Freebird project is in the adja-
cent North Beach shopping
center and should not be
included.
Both the Bailey's Gym parcel
and the Atlantic Theaters par-
cel are owned by Chris
Hionides, according to city
officials.

have adequate parking.
"The way that they count is

you do the math," Thompson
said Tuesday in a' telephone
interview, adding that Bailey's'

spaces directly in front of the
theater.
SBut' some city commission-
ers said the parking issue and
that nature of the proposed
Freebird Live's use is enough
for them to deny the project.
"I have da problem with
this," said .Mayor Don
Wolfson, who along with
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher
said he would vote against the
Freebird project.
Wolfson said he is'pleased
that the Baileys have chosen to
operate one of their gyms in"
the, city. And AVolfson said he
does not feel right approving a
project that could negatively
effect the gym project in
which the Baileys have already
'invested over $1 millimoi.'
Also, Wolfson and Fletcher
said they don't think that a,
conceit venue belongs next to,
a residential neighborhood.
The proposed site backs up to
several residential dwellings.'
And Wolfson said he fears the
things normally associated
with a live music venue such
as noise and raucous behavior
would not be appropriate for
that area.
The city's Community
Development Board recently
recommended the project by
approved by the commission.
Jenness said she and her
staff will do everything possi-
ble to soundproof the business
.and provide proper security so
not to adversely effect adja-
cent residences or businesses.
"We will do everything we
need to do ...," Jenness told
commissioners,' adding that
the business is no longer book-
'ing "hard core" musical acts,
which traditionally bring a
wilder crowd.
Freebird Live at its current
location has played host to
acts in recent years such as
Willie Nelson, the Neville
Brothers, the Charlie Danriels'
Band, hard rock guitarists, jazz
acts, bluegrass acts and numer-
ou's'rock and'hard rock tribute
bands. .1"

Anti Wal-Mart talk sparks

threat of $50m damages suit


FROM STAFF,
A law firm representing the
owner of a commercial parcel
where a Wal-Mart is proposed is
threatening to seek damages for.
as much as $50 million if
Neptune Beach city officials
continue what the firm says is a
"anti-Wal-Mart campaign" to
thwart the project.
The landowner, Lakeshore
Village, stands to lose "greater
than $50 million" if the project
is denied by the city, according
.to, the Lake City law firm
Brannon, Brown, Haley &
Bullock in a July 7 letter to
Neptune Beach City Attorney
Chris White. -
The firm in the letter refers to
recent actions by the city.
regarding the proposed \Val-
Alart as "railroading" the
owner's "development rights ...
in the name of a 'anti-Wal-Nlart'
'smear, campaign ... which


"results in actionable antitrust,
tortuous interference and
.inverse condemnation claims."
"Under Florida Law, such
conduct is tantamount to an
inverse condemnation claim of
which our client, Lakeshore,
would expect to be compensat-,
ed' from the city of Neptune
Beach. It is simply intolerable
for the city' of Neptune Beach to
engage in this 'anti-\Val-Mart
campaign' knowing it is causing
economic damages to the
landowner," said Stephen C.
Bullock, an attorney.
The attorneys for Lakeshore
Village in the letter accuse city-
officials of delaying their
approval of the Wal-Mart proj-
ect in "an obvious attempt to
place Wal-Mart's application
behind the date" of the enact-
ment of the 60,000 square foot
ordinance adopted Monday.

Commissioners take care of friends


To the editor:
* Some of the most basic and
valid arguments for stopping
the whole" process of the
ridiculous changes in Atlantic
Beach building code have
been reiterated numerous
times to the Commission.
They are as follows:
1) Besides the 3 or 4 com-
mission members, where are
the people who want this vs.
the 1000+ people who don't?
Simply compare the numbers
and act accordingly and
responsibly. Which leads to
next point.
2) That the Commission is
here to serve the MAJORITY of
the citizens, not just a vocal
few (literally a few), or the
desires of Commission mem-
bers themselves.
3) Everyone knows that the
Winter Report's recommenda-
tions, with it's drastic and
-'wholesale' -changes,..would
ha'e absolutely, positively
been voted through 'as is' had
there not been opposition.
That itself is evidence that the
Commission is irresponsible
and not acting in the best
interest of the citizens as a
whole.
4) The $100,000 spent on
the Winter report would be a


small loss compared to the
individual and cumulative loss
in property values that would
be suffered by the citizens. I
for one would be willing to
sacrifice my $7.25 prorata
share as a taxpayer.
51 The City can't start
restricting people's property'
rights because of any failures
in the City to provide ade-
quate storm water drainage.
By CONTINUING to ignore
these valid points, it's clear.
that certain members of this
Commission .are DETER-
MINED to see through (what
can only be) their personal
agendas.
Just that Commissioner
Simmons has a personal inter-
est in the outcome represents
a conflict of interest and
should eliminate her from vot-
ing on this issue.
The, Cpmmunity
Development Boaird: is' beer'
charged with tie' p'rbcess of'
determining what code
changes should be made.
However, the CDB meetings
are: a-joke with Commission
members *being allowed to
interject and assert their opin-
ion from the audience arid
influence board members,
decisions. In addition, a CDB,


member was quoted as saying
'let's just make a decision so
we can get out of here'.
In reality, this whole process
shouldn't even be taking place
until a SUBSTANTIAL number
of people come forth request-
ing such changes be made. I
have attended most of the
meetings where this issue has
been discussed, and have wit-
nessed only a very small num-
ber of people who appear to be
in favor of these code changes.
Interestingly, included in that
small number of people are at
least three of the newly elect-
ed Commission members, the
City Manager, and some citi-
zens who are known to be per-
sonal friends with some of the
Commission members.
Coincidence?
I think not. Self serving
phrase for the day: "There's a
couple-of things that me and
nym'-ds' wod.h Ti 'td s'10 4;!'
change in AB,'b P'fi goriha get'"1
elected and have these things
taken care of and the bell with
everybody else"
S'Good ole boy politics'...still
alive and well in Atlantic
Beach.

Learn a lesson from Israel an

fight for freedom as always


To the editor:
Americans should take a,
stem and clear message from
the recent actions of the Israeli
Government and its military.
Israel's recent hard stance and
failure to succumb to intema-
tional opinion, and the liberal
media, shows its will, tenacity,
and unwillingness to be intim-
idated by a bunch of barbaric
terrorists, whose only goal is
the destruction of the country
and it's citizen's. '
If this scenario does niot
sound familiar, then it's
because you have either been
living in denial, or listening to
the liberal media, and the likes
of Senator Kennedy, Kerry, and'
Clinton. Theie was a time in
our history, that those who
dared to do us harm, or threat-
en our way of life and liberties
knew that Americans, of all
ages, in every comer 'of this
great country would stand up
and fight. "
There was a time in this great
country, where our nation was'
united against any tyrant,
pirate, dictator, or loose mis-
guided souls, who would dare
to bring us harm. There was a
time in this greatcountry, that
attacking one of our war ships,
killing or daring to kill our
brave mep in uniforms, or
threatening our liberties as
Americans would bring .the
"Full strength and unity of our
Nation".
Israel today is what America
once was. A cowardly terrorist
attack upon a "rifle quad" size
patrol, which brought the kid-
napping of one of their brave
young men in uniform by
Hamas, has been met with full
military force, invasion into
the Gaza Area, the bombing of


electric & water supplies to the
area, and the arrest of dozens of
political terrorists, along with
an "all out assault" on its ene-
mies. The Israeli Air Force went
as far as "Sending a Message" to
the President of :Syria, and
"Buzzing" his summertime Villa
retreat with F-16 jets, sending a-
"Clear and present" 'message
that its enemies'can "Run, but
it cannot hide". .
Two of our bravest young
men in uniforms faced even a
more horrific fate, and all the
media and our liberal ILeaders
did nothing, but to concen-
trate and report on "shady"
unsubstantiated, and sensa-
tionalism reports of Marines
"Killing innocent civilians" in a
remote, dangerous operation,
where not a single one of these
"Monday morning
Quarterbacks" were within 100
miles of the incident that also
took the lives of two brave
Marines.
Israel's historical parallel to-
America's' past glory is very
simple; They are a nation sur-
rounded by envious tyrahnical
enemies, whose only goal is to
destroy its existence. Just as we
dealt with pirates in Tripoli,
and anyone who would dare
attack our flag in the high seas,
Israel today deals bluntly and'
unmercifully with those bent
on doing the same to its citi-
zens. While the UN and the
USA continues to play cat and
mouse with Iran and its
nuclear ambitions, make no,
mistake about it, that it will be
ultimately Israel that will
launch an attack and destroy
the threat that is meant for
them.
Americans must regain this
will and realize that our way of


life, our existence, and our free-
dom are dangerously threaten
by an enemy more dangerous
than any other we have ever
faced in our history.
To them, "death is life", and
they are stuck in centuries past,
where evil, fear, and barbaric
acts such as "beheadings" are
seen as paying for one's sin.
There is no negotiating with'
such terrorist mentality, there
is no "political correctness" ,
there is no retreat, there is no
fence, or wall big enough to
keep them away, there is no
democracy among these
Barbaric. .
There is only "VIOLENCE",
and for us as Americans, just
look to the Israelis, for the hard'
core, "in your face" truth
Destroy your enemy, or be
destroyed by them. Make the
sacrifices' that we, as
Americans, and all generations
before us have made, and fight
for our Freedom, just as we
have always done, because this
enemy is riot going to go away,
and start to phantom the:
"facts" that in total war for sur-
vival, which we are in, there
will be "collateral damage", the
death of those who do not
deserve to die. But you do not,
see Israel arresting its own sol-
diers to please the liberal
media, every time an innocent
civilian, becomes a casualty.
You see Israel continued to be
focused on destroying its
enemy and safeguarding its
Freedom and existence as a
nation. Let us not forget what
got us here as a nation, and
what we need to do to stay as
one.

ANN
VONTHRON
COLUMNIST ,:

You have

to take

care of

yourself

If Katie Couric can have a
colonoscopy on national
TV, then I can talk about
my varicose veins. Now that
all the men have stopped
reading, I can speak frankly.'
Women (and men) who have
spent hours on their feet daily
and/or women who have been
pregnant know what they are,
so I won't sport with anyone's
intelligence by giving the
medical definition.
For years I carried the banner
of martyrdom and called them
my "badge of honor" for hav-
ing had children. Then I real-
ized that I was saying these big
purple painful ugly, bulging
things on my legs were because
of the existence of my chil-
dren, and this did not seem
like a compliment to my off-
spring. In fact it sounded a lit-
tle resentful.
Instead, I decided to get rid
of them, (the veins, not my
children) which I thought
would be a private secret mat-
ter.. I clipped an ad out of the
paper and hung it on the side
of my fridge in what I thought
was an inconspicuous place-.
When, two years later,' I
finally called and made an
piinihtrment, 'm, oldest sbn
bvethai-d, and ''shid"'"f s
wondering when you were
gonna finally do something.
That thing been on our refrig-
erator for--ever." I can just
imagine he and his buddies
crowded around it, pointifig
and laughing at what to thein
was the equivalent of "Veins'R
Us'". "
As in -everything out of ,iy,
realm of expertise, I thought it
was going to be a quick afid
easy deal. For some women
thiisis the case, but I waited so
long, it has been a multistep
sequence of events. Each has
been an improvement and
relief.,
After my first procedure, my
13-year-old son was concerned
with the bandages and after-
noon of blessed bed rest. The
conversation went something
like this:
"You OK, Mom?"
"Yeah, I'm fine."
"Do they have to do any-
thing else?"
"Well, I have to go back a
couple more times."
"Yeah, I thought so, because
you've still got some big purple
things on the back of your
leg." '
The;only thing that kept me
from snatching every hair off
of his head was his look of gen-
uine interest and concern. I
guess he figured that if I hung
an ad about my veins on the
fridge for God and everybody
to see, that it was cool for him-
to let me know how he
thought the whole thing was
going.
I think that it is safe to say
that mothers often put them-
selves dead last on the priority
list of their household. The
logistics, planning and partici-
pation required for three chil-
dren and a dog makes the pur-
suit of my personal issues seem
almost selfish. Besides, Id
rather spend any free time
doing something with more
instant gratification than sit-
ting in a surgeon's waitirfe
room. Like tennis. Or eating.,.
As with all personal
improvements, I'm sorry I did-
n't take care of this earlier. -I
physically feel much better,
imagine that my legs look bet-
ter, and know that I have great-
ly diminished the chance for
medical problems later. Maybe
we emotionally carry more on
our shoulders than we really
have to by not paying atten-
tion to our personal needs
sooner. Just a thought.

The Atlantic Beach City Commission
will take another opportunity to review
,and possible adjust a proposed commu-
nity character ordinance for the Old
Atlantic Beach neighborhood before
moving forward with final consideration
of the measure.
The commission discussed the propos-
al to establish development standards in
the neighborhood at its Monday meet-
ing and agreed that the proposal needs
more attention before enactment is con-i
sidered. Some commissioners said they
merely want a few questions answered,
while at least 'one commissioner says he
wants significant changes, saying that
the proposal does not accomplish its
goal and has been watered down from
the original draft.
The commission decided it will hold a
workshop to further examine the issue. A
date for the meeting has not yet been
set.
The city's Community Development
Board recently recommended the com-
mission pass the ordinance which essen-
tially limits the size of new and reno-
vated homes .in the neighborhood


The neighborhood impacted
by the proposed design stan-
dards is currently defined by:

Ahern Street between the,
beach and Sherry Drive on the
south;
Sherry Drive extending north to
11th Street on the west;
11th Street extending east to
East Coast Drive;
East Coast Drive extending
north to 16th Street, and 16th
extending east to the beach.


through a set of design standards. Sortie
residents and city officials fear that the
unique ambiance of the neighborhood
could be destroyed if market forces drive
property owners to construct large
homes, as has become more common in


recent years.
Many residents who spoke for and
against the ordinance at Mpnday's meet-
ing say that the development standards
should apply to the entire city.
'The former city commission about
three years ago at a strategic planning
session identified a need to look at ways
to protect the ambiance of the city's
Core City, now referred to as Old
Atlantic Beach.
Since then, the commission hired 'a
consultant for over $100,000 to help the
city explore and draft an ordinance to
thwart large, box-style homes in the
neighborhood. Numerous workshops
and public meetings have been held over
the last year regarding the issue.
The issue of whether to apply the pro-
posed standards to the entire city was
discussed at several of those meetings
but it was determined fairly early in the
process that the ordinance should only
cover the Old Atlantic Beach neighbor-
hood. And it's for that reason that city
officials are hesitant to, in the 11th hour,
change the scope of the proposal, as is
being requested by some residents.

A custom home builder,
Hanalea Construction, from
the Beaches has committed to
include solar hot water systems
in its next five homes. Two of
these homes are currently being
constructed on Jacksonville
: Drive in Jacksonville Beach.
As the second largest user of
electricity in the home, a solar
hot water system can save.
homeowners between 15 and
30 percent on their utility bills.
"We're very committed to
energy efficiency and being a
green builder," said Linda
Pomerantz, president of'
Hanalea Construction.
The small company is cur-
rently 85 percent green, and
would like to eventually reach
the 90 percent marker. Solar
power is only one of many steps
toward energy efficiency taken
by the home builder, Pomerantz
said, noting that homes are also
built around existing trees to
provide shade, feature 12-inch
thick walls, higher levels of,
insulation, impact-resistant
windows and gas cooktops and
dryers, Pomerantz said.
These homes can be especial-
ly valuable in coastal communi-
ties because they still provide
power during an outage from a
storm. People in these homes
would still have hot water,
would still be able to cook and
they would still be able to do
laundry, she said.

A Jacksonville Beach restau-
rant received the okay to con-
struct a brick patio in an exist-
ing parking area in the. 1200
i block of Beach Blvd.
I The Planning Commission
Monday granted conditional
use approval for outdoor seating
to Twisted Sisters, located in the
Beach Plaza shopping center.
Owner Sunny Groves said she
hopes that offering outdoor din-
ing will attract, new customers
and increase the.visibility of the
shopping center.
"It's about the only commer-
cial center left on Beach
Boulevard and it's such a major
thoroughfare into the city," she
said.
The 500-square-foot brick
patio and walkway leading to'
the seating area will extend
beyond the sidewalk area and
will utilize approximately four
parking spaces in front of the
business.
Senior Planner Bill Mann said
the patio is below the maxi-
mum size allowed for a 4,300-
square-foot restaurant.
The former tenant also
obtained conditional use
approval for a 350-square-foot
seating area but they are not
transferrable.
To accommodate the increase
in space; Twisted Sisters must
provide one extra parking space
in addition to the other four
spaces."
Mann said the parking at the
center is "more than adequate"


normalcy during a storm," she
said.
Along with providing envi-
ronmental protection,
Pomerantz said that one of the
main goals of the company is to
build a quality product for the
consumer.
"There's no guarantee at this
point that this is what the cus-
tomers will pay for," she said.
This is what keeps many large
home builders from incorporat-
ing energy efficiency into their
homes, Pomerantz said. David
Smith, the president and owner
of SunWorks Solar Systems, the
provider of solar systems for
Hanalea, added that large home
builders tend to abstain from
energy efficiency for 'a variety of
reasons.
First, due to the great demand
for homes in the area, builders
can sell pretty much anything
that they can finish, Smith said.
. "There's no incentive to be
different or special," he said.
"There's no competition."
Additionally, consumers have
not made demands for energy'
efficierit homes. Therefore,
builders see the additional
expenses of energy efficiency as
a speculative investment. There
is no guarantee that 'consumers
.place a higher value on these
homes and are willing to pay
more for a green home, Smith
sai.
MI.4gver, the benefits from,
in 1g solar hot water sys-
te p new home construc-
tioris'ould have a significant
impact for the environment


to accommodate the project
and acknowledged that no
amplified music will bee permit-
ted on the patio.
He also said there was no
need to impose special hours of
operation for patio seating
because the surrounding prop-
erties are commercial.
'Commissioner Terry DeLoach
said that he has traditionally
opposed outdoor seating areas
proposed for smaller strip cen-
ters where parking is limited.
"There was a potential for
problems," he said. "This one is
larger and different from the
ones we've looked at before. I
d6n't think a precedent was set
with the others."
Mann said there are no
records of any problems associ-
ated with outdoor seating at any
establishment in the shopping
center.
The Moon Grille does not
extend service to its outdoor
seating area. 1st Coast Billiards
also obtained conditional
approval for outdoor seating but
has yet to exercise the right,
Mann said.

and toward American energy
usage.
"If we put solar water heating
in every new home in America,
we'd probably never have to
build another power plant," he
said.
Tax incentives that went into
effect in. January have already
made an impact on the popu-


larity and viability of installing
a solar hot water system. The
energy bill gives a 30 percent
tax credit for both residential
and commercial installations,
although the bill caps the credit
for residential consumers at
$2,000.

Publishing Co.



etty Man author starts



own publishing company


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
'"Jetty Man" author Billy Reynolds
recently became a book publisher out of
necessity.
: The Mayport native, who has written
nine novels and one non-fiction book,
started High Pitched Hum Publishing
Co. seven months ago after two firms
that published and distributed his
books went out of business.
"I only created the publishing compa-;
ny so that I could finish the 'Jetty Man'
series," Reynolds said in an interview
last week at The Beaches Leader.
"Then I started getting calls from peo-
pie wanting to know about my publish-
ing company. I was treated so crummy
by publishers that I felt like I could give
authors a better deal."
Since January, High Pitched Hum has
published books for both.veteran and
first-time writers.
The fledgling company's catalog lists
24 books, including 10 by Reynolds,
who recently published "Hoochie
Coochie," the eighth installment in his
popular "Jetty Man" series of Southern
Gothic novels.
"We have 14 authors and seven more
are expected this summer," said
Reynolds, who penned "Jetty eMan" in'
1999 while on an 11-week sick leave


from Mayport Middle School, where he
was the principal for four years.
"We're on pace to have 50 books on
our website by January. It's called coop-
erative publishing because we give
authors so much in return.
"They put up the money but the,
return on their investment is very high
compared to traditional publishing."
An author who signs a contract with
High Pitched Hum, a subsidy publisher,
pays between $5,000 and $7,000 to
have a manuscript turned into a 6-by-9
softbound book with a maximum of
250 pages.
In exchange, the author receives
2,000 books, full-color cover designs, an
ISBN number and a back cover barcode.
Reynolds also organizes book signing
for his clients at area book stores. He
also registers. High Pitched Hum books
with Sarasota-based BookWorld
Companies, one of the nation's largest
book distributors.
Selling another story
Getting a book published is easy.r
Selling one is another story.
Reynolds learned that the hard way.
His inaugural novel, "Jetty Man," has
sold more 'than 70,000 copies, but it
took a lot of time and effort on the
author's part.


Self-published authors have to hawk
their goods, much like street vendors.
Before retiring from the school sys-
tem in May, Reynolds, who has a Ph.D.
in educational leadership, spent his
weekends and many weeknights at
book signing.
Eventually, his persistence paid off.
"It took me a year and a half to get
into Books-A-Million at the beach. And
two and a half years to get into Barnes
& Noble [at Regency]," Reynolds said.
"People think that as an author you
get 25 books in a store. What you really
get is three books in a store."
At his first-ever book signing at The
Book Mark in Atlantic Beach, Reynolds
promised owner Rona Brinlee that if she
ordered 50 "Jetty Man" books, he would
invite 50 paying customers to the book
signing. I .. "
Reynolds sold 187 books, 17 more
than best-selling author Carl Hiasson,
who. had signed there the. week before.
"Of course, all my friends bought
books," Reynolds recalled With a chuck-
le.
,"I've endeared myself to independent
book stores because I'm handling my
own books now. and I give them a 50
percent discount."'

St. Johns library staffers enjoy cooking

T hree staffers with the St. Johns County
Library system have turned their mutual
interest in cooking into special events at
the St. Augustine branch library.
Children's Librarian NMikki Sampo, reference
librarian Lisa Calvert, and
library assistant Marcia Daniels
have incorporated several
programs to help increase the
public's interest in library serv-
ices.
"Food brings people in," said
Calvert, adding that hundreds
of people attended an old-
fashioned "Hoe Down" at the
library in April.
A buffet of chicken and sides was served,
accompanied by a live band.
The event was sponsored by the Friends of
the Library.
Middle Eastern dishes were served during a
countywide effort in March to promote the
best-selling novel, "The Kite Runner."
The event gave readers a chance to try food
from the region where the book is set.
To generate interest in the Florida Library


served.
Teens are a challenging group to bring into
the library, said Sampo who has drawn on the
skills of other staff members to develop inter-
esting programs for this age group.
S'mores were served at an evening event
called "Spooky Tales Around
the Campfire."
S Another teen event,
"Decadent Vegan Desserts" was
held earlier in June.
Calvert and Daniels helped
FCOOKS with ideas for the hands-on
vegetarian dessert program.
They hoped the event would
appeal to teens looking for
something a little different to try.
Calvert and Daniels have been vegetarians
for more than 15 years.
Using fresh foods from local markets, vege-
tarian cooking is an easy way to cook meals
with lower fat and healthy ingredients,
Calvert said.
Daniels, who likes desserts, said there are

Books: 'Jetty Man' author publishing


Recipes: Library delves into cooking


Cont. from A-9
Reynolds recently spent 30
days signing books at an inde-
pendent book store in
Fernandina Beach.
'For the next 90 days, he
and other High Pitched Hum
authors will be signing books
at the Borders book store near
the Avenues Mall.
Among those signing is 84-
year-old crime novelist Nancy
Powell of St. Augustine, who
recently released her second
book, 'Murder on the Rocks."
Also participating is first-
time children's author John
Oberheu of Jacksonville
Beach, one of the invited
speakers at May's Much :Ado

by the Jacksonville Public
Library system.
b.beriieu's illustrated book,
"The Manatee that 'Flew,"'is'
based on a true story from the
files of the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife 'Service, where,
Oberheu worked as a wildlife
biologist. '

a Reynolds advises' his
authors to sell their books in
there own back yard before
branching out to other mar-
kets.
'.Reynolds said.;he "saturat-
ed" Jacksonville with "Jetty
Man" books before embarking
on,_ book signing from
Daytona to the Carolina.s.
Three years ago, Reynolds
was invited to speak at a
regional -conference for
Books-A-Million store man-
agers in. Birmingham, Ala.
He encouraged staffers with
the nation's third largest book
retailer to invite more local
authors in for book signing.
Last November, Reynolds
was invited to speak about-
the genesis of the ."Jetty Man"
seffs at .the Pdnte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.
About 20 people attended
the-talk, seven of whom later
contacted Reynolds about
publishing their own books.
Five of those seven are cur-
rently High Pitched Hum
authors, including Neptune
Beach resident and former
University of Georgia football
star Leman "Buzy" Rosenberg,
who has sold more than 4,000
copies of his memoir,

around time between manu-
script and the finished prod-
uct is about eight weeks.
High Pitched Hum edits the
manuscript, but the author
has the final say, Reynolds
said.
"They get a lot of hands-on
from me," added Reynolds,
who took the name of his
publishing company from a
chapter title in his first book.
"I never met the guy that
was my first publisher. All we
did was talk on the phone."

10 books on the shelf

Reynolds had just finished
the fifth book in the "Jetty
Man" series when his original
publisher went out of busi-
ness.
Reynolds said he lost thou-
sands in royalties, but eventu-
ally was able to obtain more
than 8,000 unsold books,
which he then stashed in a
storage unit in Jacksonville
Beach.
The storage unit, now
stacked from floor to ceiling

The Chocolate Tofu Pie was

The teens at the event suc-
cessfully made their own pie

Education


FMS teacher to study in Japan


I I

phriOO ubTrriiel
The Navy lends a hand to the Youth of the Beaches Art Guild, (YBAG). Pictured with "Audrey
Two" (the plant) are, from left, Jarret Turner, Todd Thiel, Rod Jones, Ricky Terry, Randy Nichols,
and Chuck Hickey. The men spent a recent Saturday building the set and props for YBAG's
upcoming show "Little Shop of Horrors." The play runs Friday and Saturday at Sandalwood High
School. Tickets are $10.


When the special education
students in Roberta Knieberg's
class learn about Japan, they
will have a firsthand perspec-
tive on the country and the
culture.
The Fletcher Middle School
teacher will spend three weeks
in Japan in October as part of
the Japan Fulbright Memorial
Fund Teacher Program. The
goal of the program is to pro-
mote the exchange of teach-
ing strategies and to enhance
American understanding of
Japanese culture through edu-
cation.
"I think that when educa-
tors experience something
firsthand, it's easier to teach,"
she said.
For special education stu-
dents, this connection
between abstract ideas and
real experiences can be espe-
cially helpful, Knieberg said.
When she taught her students
about castles, she showed
them pictures that she took of
castles when she traveled to
Germany.
"It made it a little more real
for them and a lot more real
for me," she said.
While in Japan, Knieberg
said that she is excited to


study the Japanese education
system and to incorporate
some of their tactics for spe-
cial education into her own
curriculum.
The trip, which is spon-
sored by the Japanese govern-
ment, begins in Tokyo. For
the latter part of the trip, the
teachers will reside with host
families.
The Japanese government
created the program 10 years
ago in gratitude for the
Fulbright Program, an
exchange program established
by the United States in 1946
for university students and
faculty. Now, both programs
work together to promote the
common, goal of cultural
understanding between the
two nations.
To be selected, Knieberg had
to complete a one-year lesson
plan on how she intends to
incorporate what she learns
during her stay into the class-
room and be recommended
by a regional review panel.
She completed her applica-
tion in December and
received notification that she
had been selected in March.
Some tidbits of Japanese
culture that Knieberg hopes to


bring back to her social stud-
ies class include origami, liter-
ature and even lessons on
trade.
In addition to learning
about Japan, she is also excit-
ed to learn from the other
educators that will accompa-
ny her on the trip. The
Fulbright Fund. takes groups
of up to three educators from
around the United States on
each trip.
"I'm excited to learn about
education in other pairs of
the country as well as Japan,"
Knieberg said.
At this point, the teacher
does not know who the other
people in her group might be,
but she is not nervous, she
said. As a self-proclaimed
"Navy brat," she said that she
has spent her whole life tray-
eling.
In fact, her father's Navy
career is one of the reasons
why Kniebeig was interested
in visiting Japan. She has
made it her goal to visit all of
the places that her father vis-
ited while serving in the
Navy, she said.
"It's just a place that I've
always wanted to go," she
said.

Sumrall, Hanley-Pinto take BFAST titles


Jacobs is surprise winner

of season's final triathlon


Media still


attacking

Jacksonville

and Weaver

acksonville has taken it on
the snoot again for the ter-
rible crime of hosting'the
per Bowl in 2005. The
excuse for the latest attack is a
rating by a Sports Illustrated
writer of the NFL owners and
listing Jaguars owner Wayne
Weaver somewhere below sea
level. .'
Although specific details of
his indictment arep't-listed.
Weaver (the writer won't'get
any name publicity here) is
attacked for everything but tak-
ing steroids and putting slugs,
in a church offering. He's
called "Whine" Weaver for
moaning over lack of financial
support from the fans and his
plight of low revenue.
VWhy the attack on Weaver,
when it's doubtful that Sports
Illustrated really gives a rat's
rear if Jacksonville can't match
the big teams in size and
income? There's nothing new
about it, the city was the same
when it was granted the fran-
chise in 1994. The fact that
1Weaver.is highly regarded by
his fellow owners shouldn't
'irritate Sports Illustrated writ-
ers, should it?
'Critics all over the country
have knocked us as probably a
worse locale for a, Super Bowl
than Iraq. Sports Illustrated
must. be hard up for subjects
now to resurrect that attack on
Jacksonville for getting the -
Super Bowl. One would have
thought they'd be busy search-
ing bags of every team for
drugs and anything that would
smack of chewing tobacco or
second hand smoke.
What's me reason most of
the media hated Jacksonville?
Why, there's not enough sin
here. Oh, there are enough
homicides, heaven knows, but
not the kind of free gambling,
hard drinking and naughty
goihgs-oh to keep the boysi-
busy at night. It can't be a traf-
fic problem. As any who have
covered Super Bowls from
Miami to New Orleans to
Houston to the West Coast can'
tell you, traffic is not a
Jacksonville exclusive.
It can't be inconvenience.
Media covering the big show
in Los Angeles and Miami
know what, it is having to bus
for miles from one camp to the
other for interviews that reveal
nothing.
The critic's listing of NFL
owners he prizes above others
include some interesting
names. His first choice is New
England Patriots owner Robert
Kraft and considering their
success, that's understandable,
maybe. But second, Jerry
Jones of the Dallas Cowboys,
just might be challenged by
some who have locked horns
with the bombastic Jerry, but
here again you can't knock
success.
Now No. 3 is a weird
choice. Anyone who'judges
Dan Snyder of the'
Washington Redskins a good
old boy might check with
Steve Spurrier, who was given
the gate as head coach almost
before hie got unpacked. They
might also check with ex-
Gators coach Pepper Rodgers,
who was kicked out at the
same time after being one of
Shyder's most trusted advisors
for several years.
But lambasting Weaver for
no good reason other than
calling on his community to
support the.team and host-
ing the Super Bowl smacks
of personal, not professional,
reason.
The surprise is that SI didn't
attack him for covering seats
he couldn't sell. Or maybe
they have and we just missed
it. If they haven't called for
his NFL court martial vet,
they probably will. After all,
it's the little guys who get
stepped on the most.

Justin Jacobs, a 23-year-old
from Jacksonville, was the unex-
pected men's winner of the sea-
son's third and final Lifestyles
Realtors Beaches Fine Arts Sprint
Triathlon. Also unexpected were
the strong winds that caused
cancellation of the quarter-mile
swim that opens a sprint
triathlon, resulting instead in
one-mile runs by age group.
Jacobs' winning time was
51:09, while Jennifer Hanley-

women's race May 13, won for

Gainesville was third with a

Heather Moore, 30, of

Hanley-Pinto went into the
last race hoping to break one

explained her fourth-place fin-
ish in the second BFAST by say-
ing, ".1 was six days off a half-
Lronman, so was a little tired on
that one."
This is Hanley-Pinto's second
season of triathlons. Now she's
training for an Ironman.
"I had a friend challenge me
to the Ironman, because I'm a
strong runner
... and he's a
strong cyclist,"
she said. ''So

ing to pick up.

"I'm hoping

disappointed when they cancel
the swim. I'm a runner. I'm get-
ting better at the bike. The swim
is my weakest link. So anytime
they cancel the" 'swim, I'm
*happy."
As to the Ironman's 2.4-mile
swim, Hanley-Pinto said, "I can
swim the same pace forever. I
just can't swim fast. The 400
here's such a quick, all-out
sprint, and I can't do it.
"I'll definitely be here [next
year]," she added.
On the men's side, Jacobs, a'
regular on the Jacksonville
Grand Prix running circuit, cap-
tured the first BFAST he's ever
entered. Huff finished second in
52:13, with McLarty, a member
of the University of Florida
swim team, third in 52:17.
Jacobs competed In his initial
BFAST because there was an
opening on his running calen-
dar.
"This race weekend was open.
So I checked it out, and I've
heard a lot of good things about
it," he said, adding, "It was a fun
race."
Commenting on his time,
Jacobs termed it "a decent race,"
adding, "I've been strong run-
ning training, so the duathlon
kind of tilted it a little in my
favor, with the lack of a swim.


"I was hoping to do a
triathlon. It would have been a
much tighter race, because
there's some strong swimmers
here, too, I know."
Now that he's had a taste of
BFAST, Jacobs hopes to return
next year.
"I'd like to do it," he said.
"I'mr also competitive in the
running circuit, and a lot of the
races fall ,on the Jacksonville
Grand Prix circuit of running


races, so I can't necessarily do
the series."
McLarty was disappointed he
couldn't swim, since that's his
specialty.
"It was a different aspect," he
said. "It's a lot tighter race,
because the swim usually
stretches the field out a lot
more. So it was a lot more head-
to-head action, always someone
there to push you the whole
bike ride and the whole run.


"It came down to the wire.
Transitions were key today just
"because a few seconds in transi-
tion can make all the differ-
ence," said McLarty, who wasn't
sure if he'll be back next season.
"I'm not sure how much
focus I have to put on my
swimming," he said. "We're
approaching the Olympic trials,
so I have to get more down to
the grindstone and crank out
the yards."

In a sight that was commonplace for.Nease
High School last. spring, Matt Reifsnider hit
what proved to be a game-winning home run in
front of coach Greg "Boo" Mullins. Only this
time it was 'for Mullins' North Florida summer
league team which improved to 16-4 with the
July 5 victory over American Legion Post 88.
Reifsnider's blast, in the top of the seventh
inning, broke open a scoreless tie and helped
starting pitcher Joe Zwick earn a 1-0 decision.
When Relfsnider pitched for Nease, he helped
himself with two game-winnipg homers.
Reifsnider was the second batter in the top of
the seventh in the game played at Wolfson
High.
"I was. sitting in the dugout, it's seventh
inning, 0-0, and I was like, 'Reifsnider, you need
to jack one here,'" said Zwick, who struck out 12
in the win. "As soon as he hit that ball in the air,'
I started' screaming. I knew it was gone. .
"Usually, when he's pitched and it's 0'-0,'he
goes and does it himself," Zwick recalled from
the Panthers' 2006 campaign. "I'm glad he
helped me out."
Reifsnider takes his baseball skills to The
Citadel later this summer, while Zwick hopes to
get an opportunity at Santa Fe Community
College, where four-year Nease starter Chris
Warren is playing. Mullins is helping Zwick find
a baseball home.
Zwick didn't have a lot of opportunities to
pitch during Nease's 23-4 season because the
main starters, Reifsnider and Daniel Jones,,
backed by Matthew Redding, threw complete
games.
"Joe's got one no-hitter this year. This is his
second one-hitter of the summer, so he's had
five great outings. But this is probably his. best
one, because they've got a bunch of Division-I
players," Mullirs said of Post 88. "They've got
three kids who were drafted. Joe just went right
through them."
Zwick faced 18 batters, the minimum, through
the first six innings. Reifsnider, who was catch-
ing, gunned down a baserunner following a


fourth-inning single, and another baserunner
was erased after being picked off second.
Zwick, who left two seventh-inning walks
stranded, hurled his no-hitter against a Camden
County, Ga., team.
Brian Joseph, Zwick's mound opponent and
one of Post 88's D-I players, struck out 14 North
Florida batters while allowing six hits, three of
which came in the seventh.
"I was looking for it," Reifsnider said of his
homer. "He threw me a fastball first pitch, then
came back with a slider or his curveball (and 1]
Fouled it off. I looked for another fastball, and
luckily it worked."
Reifsnider finished with a 10-1 record for the
Panthers but hurt his shoulder pitching against
Bishop Moore May 9.
"When I got back from New York, about a
week ago, I started throwing," said Reifsnider.
"Every time I played for [North Florida] I've been.
DH-ing, haven't been throwing at all. Today
,Coac Mullins asked if I could throw, and I said,
'Yessit, I'd love to.' He told me I could catch."
Reifsnider was pleased with Zwick's perform-
ance. ..
"Joe-threw a great game," he said. "I wish we
could have given him a little more run support
earlier in the game, especially when [center
.fielder] Patrick O'Malley gave us a lead-off dou-
ble [in the fourth]."
O'Malley was the only North Florida player
with two hits. He singled down the third base
line as the game's second batter.
"This summer I've really gotten to pitch in
competition. I have probably 40 innings" said
Zwick. "And every time I pitch, Mullins is work-
ing with me. So I'm getting better."
Mullins was a relief pitcher in the Milwaukee
Brewers farm system who reached the majors
* with the Brewers for parts of two seasons. He vis-..
ited with Zwick during the seventh inning at
Wolfson.
"He just came out to give me a little breather,"
said the right-hander. "He gets really worked up
in the dugout, had to come out to calm himself
down. He told me I need to slow down a little
bit."

Trying to describe in one word the
food at Mother's Home Cooking in
Jacksonville Beach is easy. The word is
delicious. It's the same kind of stick-to-
your-ribs, down-home dishes you
remember from vour childhood.
Describing the "feel" of Mother's
Home Cooking is a little trickier. It's
funky, eclectic and comfy. And some-
how y'ou expect an apron-clad Mom to
remind you to use your napkin and .- ...-
clean your plate or there's no dessert. --- ------

niently located next to Giovanni's
Restaurant on Beach Boulevard is the
brainchild of owner Jay Shadden and his
best' friend from his high school days,
Scott Foltz. .

work in progress," says Jay. "We bought
Danny's at the Beach in March 2005 and
in January opened Mother's Home
Cooking."
The goal was to keep some of the
restaurant's beachy flair and popular sig-
nature dishes 'like the' potato chip
crusted pork chops, fried shrimp and U
other "Southern comforts" and then'
add their own imprint, according to Jay. Owner Jay Shadde

nThe '26.2 with Donna race begins to take shape

I I C KO;, 4 dt l ff l .d wv i J k iSt lfwl il hp nol intin


t was a fortuitous moment
three years ago when
Beaches resident Donna
.icken met running icon Jeff
Galloway at the Gate River
Sun expo.
] Chicken, a 12-year veteran
inarathon runner and First
Coast News (WTLV) anchor,
wounded the Donna Hicken
foundation in 2003 after sur-
Mving two life-threatening
$outs with breast cancer.
1 Galloway's name is connect-
ed with nearly everything that
las anything to do with run-
rung. In 1972, he ran the
10,000 meters at the Munich
(plympics.
Since then, he has written
numerous books and articles i.
on running, he has a column
every month in Runner's
World magazine and makes
ozens-of speaking engage-
rents worldwide.
Lately his greatest claim to
aame could be his innovative
'Galloway System," a long-dis-
tance training method that
incorporates walking rest peri-.
ds between periods of run-
ning. The system's primary
focus is less injury, less stress
and to finish the race with a
mile on your face.
Chicken and Galloway talked
6f her "Run With Donna"
group that has raised money
for her Donna Hicken
Foundation which funds the
.ital needs of undeserved local
women who are stricken with'


BOB FERNEE
RUNNING/FITNESS

breast cancer. Now three years
old, her foundation has
helped 350 women and 'last
month reached an impressive
landmark: A-million dollars
. raised.
Chicken reflected: "When I
went through my episodes
with cancer, I had a good job
and insurance but I was still
Swamped with thousands and
thousands of.dollars. of medi-
cal bills. I thought about all
those women who didn't have
that. How did they get
through? When you don't
have any miney it doesn't
matter how much you owe, it,
might as well be a million.
When there is no n.oney, '
there is no money," she said.
They also spoke of
Galloway's charity-based train-
ing groups, of which there


now 50 throughout me u.s.
Suddenly it dawned on them:
Why not create a new
marathon with the sole pur-
pose of aiding the fight
against breast cancer?
During her own fight
against the disease, Donna
had leaned heavily upon
Jacksonville's Mayo Clinic and .
Dr. Edith Perez, the clinic's
esteemed hematologist/oncol-
ogist. In a conversation with
Perez, she learned that the
clinic's cancer research depart-
ment was always under fund-
ed.
Chicken and Perez
approached the Mayo Clinic
with an unprecedented idea:
Become involved in the found-
ing of a major race dedicated
to raise funds to fight breast
cancer. The clinic excitedly
agreed and the triumvirate of
Chicken, Galloway and Mayo
set about to organize what will
very likely be the biggest run
to ever hit Jacksonville Beach:
"26.2 With Donna: The
National Marathon To Fight
Breast Cancer "
Starting and finishing at the
Mayo Clinic, the event is a
marathon and more. Events
include a half-marathon, a
fun-run and a health and fit-
ness expo, as well as the 26.2-
mile marathon.
The marathon course will go
from the Mayo Clinic on San
Pablo Road, across the
Intracoastal Waterway, then
northward through


jacksonville, Atlantic and
Neptune Beaches and back
again.
Hicken is very familiar with
the prospective course.
"It's my home course," she
said. "I ran it many times just
to make sure I didn't hate it."
One of the course's high-
lights will be a two and a half
mile stretch northward along
the beach itself.

most important functions," he
said. "I am very excited about

The triumvirate of Hicken,

Galloway and the Mayo

what will very likely be the

biggest run ever to hit

Jacksonville Beach.


"We thought we should let
them see our beaches and how
great-they are to run on," said
Chicken. "Especially the out-of-
towners."
She hastened to point out
that the tide tables have been
checked and that it will be
low tide with plenty of hard-
packed beach-sand. Also the
beach portion of the race will
only be run on the out-bound
part of the course, while run-
ners are fresh, and only if
weather permits.


done a great job of getting
things going.
. "It will be the first-ever
national marathon where all
of the money raised will go
directly to fight breast cancer."
Another feature Galloway
will add to the event is his
new "virtual trainer" program,
an on-line running plan that
gives you Coach Galloway on
the convenience of your com-
puter. Additionally, many of
the people in his regular run-
ning groups, like the one in

toward this race.
Planning and executing a
major race is a huge undertak-
ing and sensibly, the organizers
have given themselves plenty
of time to do it. The race is set
for February 17, 2008.
Galloway is optimistic about
the turnout for the race's
debut. "I think we can get
5,000 runners, maybe more,"
he said.
Hicken's main concern is
that the event will be of the
highest quality. She frets over
the details, saying, "I want
this race to be perfect."
To help organize they have
enlisted the expertise of
Theresa O'Donnell-Price, City
of Jacksonville special events
director who planned events
for the 2005 Super Bowl.
There will be an extensive
advertising campaign and rep-
resentatives of the event will
attend all of the major race
expos for the next 18 months
to talk up the race.
The 26.2 With Donna is
seeking corporate sponsorship;
anyone interested in lending a
financial hand to this very
worthy cause may contact
Trista Wallace at 904-398-5222.

ing the Jeff Galloway training
