Condo growth cited in lagging sales
by LIZA MITCHELL
High rise developments con-
tinue to sprout along the hori-
zon in Jacksonville Beach, but
the demand for pricey condo-
miniums is waning, according
to some Beaches real estate
Mark Werner of the Werner
Realty Group, a real estate
developer, confirmed Monday
that the market is slowing, cit-
ing a growing inventory.
"Anyone with a piece of a
brain knows that the market is
changing all over the United
States," Werner said. "People
are still looking, but there is
more to look at."
The price tags on many of
the new developments are dis-
couraging younger, first-time
buyers with limited income, as
well as those who want a con-
dominium as a secondary resi-
dence, he said.
"Some [condos] are not sell-
ing [because] $800,000 and up
runs a lot of people off, espe-
cially as a second home,"
Werner, broker for the Pier
Point condominium project at
525 3rd St. N. and developer of
the 35-unit North Shore proj-
ect at 1126 1st St. N., said ris-
ing construction costs have
limited developer flexibility
when pricing their condo
After Hurricane Katrina left
so much damage in the Gulf
and coastal communities, the
cost of building materials such
as concrete rose approximately
20 percent, he said.
With a developer's costs ris-
ing, not only have market
prices followed suit, but devel-
opers who sought to capitalize
on the condo trend have
become discouraged, he said.
"That is the advantage that
rests with the people that got
in at a lower price," \Verner
said. "The price of concrete
went up after Katrina when
[our projects] were under way.

development with 58 residen-
tial units and 8,000 square feet

those units has kept a steady
pace, largely because the pric-
ing is competitive.

More discussion needed for AB ordinance
by JEFFREY MINTON
At least one more meeting will be need-
ed to iron out the final details of proposed
"community character" ordinance in
Atlantic Beach as the City Commission
met for tywo hours Monday but were
unable to get through their review of the
controversial development standards.
That despite over a year's worth of work
spent by commissioners, a hired consult-
ant, city staff, city board members and res-
idents to craft the proposed standards.
The idea behind the standards is to
thwart the construction of large, box-style
homes that many say don't fit in with the
city's character, while not treading too
heavily on private property rights. The
commission paid a consultant over
$100,000 to come up with and help draft
And although the proposed standards to
limit the size of homes have been dis-

It looks as though large, "Big
Box" retailers like Wal-Mart
and Home Depot soon won't

laws to move into Neptune
Beach or Atlantic Beach.
The Neptune Beach City
Council has already approved
a new law aimed at the large
retailers prohibiting any new
business over 60,000 square
feet from coming to the city.
And Atlantic Beach city com-
missioner-- -Monday unani-
mously gave its city staff the
OK to move forward with
drafting a proposed law ban-
ning "Big Box" retailers from
That ban already exists in
Atlantic Beach commercial dis-
tricts designated Commercial
Limited, such as along
Mayport Road. But currently in
the city's Commercial General
District essentially the
Atlantic Boulevard corridor -
"Big Box" retailers are allowed.
And that has the Atlantic
Beach City Commission scared
after Wal-Mart earlier this year
fled plans to construct a
center at 630 Atlantic Blvd., at
a ndiv vacant Neptune Beach
Those plans were filed before
the Neptune Beach City
Council passed the 60,000-
And whether or not that
limit can or will be applied to
the Wal-Mart project is still up
in the air. The issue is expected
to result in a lawsuit by Wal-
Mart against the city.
And that's why elected offi-
cials in Atlantic Beach are eager
to get something on the books
before they are confronted
with a similar issue.
Atlantic Beach City
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher
said Monday that it will be eas-
ier for the city to pass the law
now, without the pressure of a
proposed project as is the case
in neighboring Neptune Beach.
City officials in both cities
say they don't want the large
retailers primarily because of
the traffic problems they say
will be created on the areas'
already congested roads and
that type of business not fitting
in the with the cities' small
"There's every reason in the
world to oppose a Wal-Mart in

Dezmond Waters said Monday,

posed Wal-Mart in Neptune
"I feel very strongly that traf-
fic on Atlantic Boulevard,
[well] it's a failed road now."
The Atlantic Beach city staff
will now draft a proposed ordi-
nance for review by the city's
Board before final considera-
tion by the commission.

Volunteers of'the Library at Fleet Landing Tuesday presented James Stackhouse of Helping
Hands Ministry with a check for $2,900 to go towards his planned Helping Hands Village project, a
transitional housing program in the Mayport area for homeless families with children. The group
raised $1,700 through a recent book sale and then contributed another $1,200 from other sales.
The organizers of Helping Hands Village say they need to raise roughly $500,000 to purchase 2
acres west of Mayport Road for construction of about 18 town homes.The homes would be for.
homeless families with children who demonstrate an ability and intent to become self-sufficient.

Bestcon, Inc. detailed the
odyssey of the Paradise Key
subdivision, which began in
February 2001 when the firm
received a request for a propos-
al from the city of Jacksonville
Beach looking for "a developer
and a plan."
The plan entailed the devel-
opment of a densely land-
scaped 22.5-acie parcel of land
at the corner of South Beach
Parkway and Jacksonville Drive.
with the caveat that the devel-
*oper should, be able to finance
more than $4 million of the

Jacksonville Beach would want

Nichols said.'"Paradise Key, by
intent, was meant to satisfy'
both of those common con-
Fueled by 'sandwiches and
"cold bottles, of beer at the
ready,," Nichols and his design
team assembled the original
layout with scaled cul-de-sacs,
ponds and foot bridges that
crossed a meandering stream
designed from an existing mos-
quito control ditch.
Prior to installing the infra-
structure, Bestcon had to take
title to 128 lots of record, all
platted in the 20's and rezone
the property as a Planned Unit

Planning Commission and
'Bestcon; Inc. received the

A condemnation suit filed in
December 2001 allowed the
city to acquire most of the
remaining 128 lots.
Bestcon, Inc. and the CRA
secured 103 of the lots through
direct purchase and seven of
the lots were acquired through
eminent domain proceedings.
When clearing the land,
Nichols steered away from the
tradition "customary through-
out northeast Florida to bull-
doze everything," he said.
"That was not to be the case
with Paradise Key, and ulti-
mately it has been a frustration
borne by every contractor who
has worked here," Nichols said.

Cont. from A-I
cussed- ad infinitum, some
.commissioners Monday were
seemingly willing to start from
"square one," as even the most.
basit parameters of the propos-
al were up for debate.
Mayor Don Wolfson even
suggested abandoning the pro-
posal and, instead, lower the
city's height limit and increase
setbacks in certain areas to
accomplish the same goal.
Wolfson said he had recently
visited the city of Golden
Beach, Fla. which did just that
when faced with similar devel-
opment issues in the 1980s and
has had much success .'
"I don't mean to throw any
curves ..., [but] I feel that we,
will do a disservice to the com-,

the location of the Lee
Kirkland Cemetery. ,
I was born, and raised here
at the beach.-And, for all of
those 53 years I'have known
that section of Beach
Boulevard was a cemetery
for black people.
How can anyone dispute
that? Just because D.O.T, the
city, or whatever construc-
tion company decides they
need a piece of that property
to widen Beach Boulevard,
does that mean they are
allowed to just "dig up" that
section without any care or
concern for the people, and
the families of the people,
who are buried there?
What's next? Warren
Smith Cemetery? Need a
piece of that? Help your-
selves! Anything to serve the
Jax Beach doesn't look like
Jax Beach any more. In fact,
it doesn't even look like
Daytona Beach. Now, it only
bears a strong .resemblance
to South Miami Beach.
It's disgusting. Digging up
graves is progress? I wonder
how enthusiastic the Powers
That Be would like to have
their relatives disturbed, all
in the name of progress, of
course? I'm guessing, they
wouldn't be happy at all.
The City, and D.O.T., can
use any and all devises they
want to, and come up with
the solution that most fits
their intentions, But, that
property has, and always will-
be, Lee Kirkland Cemetery.
May God rest their souls.

SWAT: Suspect held high ground during standoff
Cont. from A-1
Training day goes live
Smith was on vacation in
Washington, D.C., having din-
ner in a restaurant, when
police dispatchers in
Jacksonville Beach issued the
SWAT callout at 6:55 p.m.
Minutes earlier in the 200
block of 6th Avenue South,
Rentas-Rivera had fired repeat-
edly into a moving vehicle
driven by his 26-year-old girl-
friend, Aja Leigh McKenna,
wounding her and -killing her
13-year-old niece, Brinna
Maria Ganas. .
Three other children in the
vehicle between the ages of 4
and 11 suffered minor injuries.
* At the time of the shooting,
Sgt. Tom Bingham, the- acting.
IJBPD SWAT commander in
Smith's absence, was on a
training exercise with the
majority of his unit in Nassau
County', participating in a
mock school shooting scenario
at Callahan High School.
The unit quickly ditched the
exercise, switched to live
ammunition and raced back to
Jacksonville Beach, lights
'blinking and sirens blaring.
"As we were heading down I-
95," Binghain recalled, "I was
calling the*other [SWAT] team
commanders from Atlantick
Beach and Neptune Beach to
see if they could get to the,
scene as quickly as possible
'because we were still 45 min-
Police departments in.
Atlantic Beach and Neptune
Beach have tactical units that
train and deploy %with theJBPD
SWAT team. The three units all
receive the same SWAT dis-
patches, or "pages."
"Some. of their team mem-
bers were on the scene before
Tom got there," said Smith,
who was first notified of the
callout by Neptune Beach Lt.
Tony Carrillo, who heads a
Carrillo's counterpart, Sgt.
Vic Guillio, heads a four-per-
son Atlantic Beach police unit.
Boots on the ground
While SWAT teams were
mobilizing for what would
become a tense, protracted
-engagement, patrol officers on
'the street were securing three
separate crime scenes, includ-
ing a second-story Jack'6 rille
Beach apartment in the 100
block of 2nd Avenue South,
where Rentas-Rivera was holed
JBPD Officer Shane Watson
was the first patrolman to
respond to another of the three
crime scenes: the 3rd Street
Diner, where the shooting vic-
tims had gone for help.
Cpl. Tom Crumley of the
JBPD was the first officer at the
6th Avenue South shooting
scene. Both patrolmen arrived
within a few minutes of the
first 911 call, according to a
JBPD SIVAT team after-action
JBPD Officers Jeremy
Garriott and Chris Balsamo'
chased Rentas-Rivera on foot
for several blocks before the
.armed suspect broke into the
2nd Avenue South apartment,
and took two occupants
According to his after-action
report, Crumley, a patrol super-
'isor, organized fellow officers
in a "four-corner coverage"
around the apartment, and
advised dispatchers to activate
a SWAT callout.
Minutes later, Crumley sawa

After a second hostage, the

to escape, he gave police valu-
able information about the lay-

The former captives also
informed police of an impor-
tant shortcoming: There were
additional firearms inside the
apartment, including a rifle.
Smith wasn't the only SWAT
team member on vacation that
Two of the four JBPD SWAT
negotiators were out of town
and one of the unit's thiee
snipers was sick. The lead
sniper, Bingham, was serving
as acting, unit.. commander.

officers were also out of serv-'
The manpower shortage,
meant JBPD Det. Matthew
Robinson would be "on the,
scope" as a sniper for eight
Another tactical disadvan-
tage faced by the SWAT opera-
tors that night was that the
hunted, not the hunters, held
the high ground.
"Our main concern was that
the apartment was, on the sec-
ond story, and the approaches
were bad," recalled Smith, who
arrived on the scene well after
midnight. after catching a
plane out of D.C.
"What was going through
our mind was that he knew he
shot and killed at least one per-
son, [and] he had kidnapped
and taken people hostage. He
had. nothing to lose. We'
thought he was going to come
SAaded Bingham: "Numerous
times [the suspect]: said; 'I'm
going to come out shooting., If
you come inr here, I will kill
'you. I will make you kill me.' "
A major tactical advantage
for SWAT was that ,Rentas-,
Rivera' picked a bad spot to
,make a last stand. ,
The two-story apartment
had limited escape routes.
Police cut power to the. build-.
ing and: the surrounding city
block and disconnected the
main phone line.
By midnight, both police
and the suspect had settled in
for a long .night.,
"A few hours into the situa-
tion, we knew this 'was going
to be an extended tactical-

position around 2 a.m. after
being relieved of command by
"It's usually going to end in
"the first hour, or it's going to be
protracted. The' negotiators
:were as busy as we were. After
the third hour, they convinced,
him to drop one of his
weapons in exchange for a
pack of cigarettes."
Stalemate ends with gas,
During the eight-hout
ordeal, Sgt.: Tonya Tator and
Officer Ken Montgomery, the
SWAT negotiators, kept in con-
stant communication with the
suspect via cell phone and a
special "throw phone" line
lobbed into the residence.
Negotiations '"peakeld' 'and
valleyed," said Binghari." Cne
minute the suspect told nego-
tiators he was coming out, and
the next minute he recanted.
Around 2:30 a.m., Smith
said, the suspect was still talk-
ing, but not saying anything of
relative value that might end
The SWAT commanders at
that point decided to step up
the engagement by breaking a
few windows of the apartment,
and firing in several, rounds of

According to the .SWAT
team's after-action report, the
"method of resolution" in the

Back to School with BEAM
family affair for Wolfsons
by ASHLEY MILLS
More than 800 children
from low-income families will
have the opportunity to shop
for back-to-school supplies
Saturday, courtesy of the 13th
annual Back to School with
The free event, 'a collabora-
tive effort of the Beaches com-
munityi will be held from 8.
a.m to 1:30 p.m. at the Family
Life Center at Beach United
Methodist Church, 325 7th
Ave. N., Jacksonville Beach.
The church is located across
the street from the Jacksonville
Beach Post Office.
Any child from pre-school to
high school who lives east of
Hodges Boulevard is eligible to
shop for clothes, school sup-
plies, underwear, sock's, shoes,
backpacks and dental supplies.
"The whole purpose is to
uplift the children who come
in here and have them feel
really good about themselves,"
said Karen Wolfson, the pro-
"I call it the Beaches'
In the program's 12-year his-
tory, Back to School with
BEAM has spent close to
$200,000 to help more than
9,000 children get ready for
the upcoming school year.
In its first year, BEAM helped
250 children and collected
'$1.60 in donations.
In 2005, 780 children
received more than 7,000 arti-
cles of clothing and new sup-
plies worth $29,401, thanks to

donations from the communi-
ty, Wolfson said.
Now in its 13th year, 'the
program that began as a cloth-
ing drive has evolved into a
cooperative community event
and a family affair for Wolfson.
Her husband, Don Wolfson,
the .mayor of Atlantic Beach,
has been involved with the
program since its inception,
greeting children and families
at the door.
"It's just kind of funny that
here he is in this position as
(nayor, but he's been doing all
this stuff all this time," she
Wolfson's children are also
highly involved with the
event. Her daughter, Erin, a
student at the Levin College of
Law at the University of
Florida, helped to pioneer
BEAM's Put a Smile on a Child
program in 1999.
Through the use of the Smile
Express, a 40-foot van, dentists
have completed more than
1,600 appointments for chil-
dren without access to dental
"And Erin's work with the
program helped her to earn a
scholarship to Vanderbilt
University, Wolfson said.
In addition to her :family,
Wolfson relies on a core group
of volunteers to help the event
run smoothly.. She lovirigly
refers to the' volunteers that
come back year after year as
"the BEAM team."
Matt Fox, 23, is one of them.
He has volunteered for the
event for the past nine years.
This year, he is taking time
off from work to help set up
and sort clothing. He said that
it is. easy for people at the
Beach to forget that there is a
less affluent group of people
who struggle out here.
Back to School with BEAM is
an important reminder for the
community, he said.
"I love what Mrs. Wolfson
has .created," Fox said. "It's
such a great community
The event is run by about
150 to 200 volunteers.
Churches and civic groups,
such as the Oceanside Rotary,
help in collection efforts. Also,
many of the volunteers for the
program also shop for their'
back-to-school supplies on
"It's 100 percent volunteer
and 100 percent donation-
based," WVolfson said. "You
"can't get any better than that."

Nancy and Mike Riesmeyer of Atlantic Beach with an ice sculpture filled with colorful fruit and flowers. The couple own a catering
business in Jacksonville Beach.
Riesmeyer s ice creations works of art
by KATHY NICOLETTI
P ittsburgh native Mike
Riesmeyer grew up play-'
ing in the snow just like
all the other kids on his
Snowmen were a common
sight in the neighborhood
except at Riesmeyer's house.
That's because 'Riesmeyer's
snow creations were a little
more elaborate, such as a Santa
or maybe some reindeer.
Years later, Riesmeyer, a
Jacksonville Beach caterer,
was reintroduced to the cre-
ative possibilities of simple
frozen water during his stud-
ies at the Culinary Institute of
America in Hyde Park, N.Y.
One day of class instruction
was devoted to teaching the
students what Riesmeyer
called the "engineering
basics" of ice sculpture.
"This was mostly the do's
and don'ts" he added.
Each student was given a
block of ice, a chisel, and a
shaver and told to begin
working on their sculpture.
Riesmeyer's first ice sculp-
ture was a cornucopia; the
suggested subject for the class.
'Since graduating from the
Culinary Institute in 1981,
Riesmeyer spent several years
at 4 Diamond hotels and pri-
vate clubs before opening his
own business, Designer Ice, in
Five years later, he and his
wife, Nancy, also became the
owners of Shindigs Custom
Catering and Events, not far
from their Atlantic Beach
Riesmeyer estimates that he
has sculpted more than 2,000
blocks of ice.
SBefore beginning to work
on a block of ice, Riesmeyer
looks at the ice until he can
"see" the design 'he will sculpt
from the block.
Riesmeyer uses chisels,
shavers, chainsaws, and
power tools to turn a 300-
pound block of ice into art.
At Designer Ice a special
ice-making machine makes a
solid block of ice in four to
five days during the warmer
The machines removes air
from the water as it freezes
resulting in a finished block
that is crystal clear.
Riesmeyer dons a snowsuit,
boots, gloves, and a hat
which leaves only his eyes
visible to work in the large
walk-in freezer where all the
sculpting is done.
The length of time to com-
plete a piece varies from less
than an hour to several hours,
Ice sculpting demonstra-
tions always attract a lot of
interest from both kids and
adults, and Riesmeyer has
given several demonstrations
for local schools, scout
groups, and regularly partici-
pated in the St. Augustine Fire

and Ice event.
One of Riesmeyer most pop-
ular sculpture designs for wed-
dings is a pair of kissing swans
with wings outstreached and
graceful necks forming a heart
in the center.
He customizes these by
imbedding flower petals in
the ice to match the wedding
party colors. Also popular at
weddings are ice displays with
the names of the couple or
even their photograph imbed-
ded in the ice.
Other designs for table dis-
plays that Riesmeyer has done
are vases filled with flowers,
large open clam shells, sports
mascots, Super Bowl trophies.
and fish bowls.
He also has completed
impressive pieces using several
blocks of ice for large-scale
events. One of Riesmeyer,s
favorites is a medieval castle
complete with a knight .with a
sword and a dragon that peri-
odically breathed "fire." A fog
machine connected to the
dragon supplied the "fire."
Ice searing bars can be .
made large enough to accom-
modate several bartenders
serving guests at large events
by using several block of ice.
Riesmeyer has customized
these e with company logos,
other decorative elements,
bottles of a featured liquor
imbedded in the ice, or drink
Joining the edges of differ-
ent blocks of ice together is
easier than might be expected,
said Riesmeyer. The edges are
sprayed with water which
freezes them together form-.
ing a solid bond.
The design for each sculp-
ture needs toube "engineered"
to keep the sculpture balanced
and in place as it gradually
melts while on display.
For example, a ballerina on
pointe would not be a good
choice for an ice sculpture
unless the ballerina is support-
ed by something else in the
design to give it stability, said
Moving a sculpture to the
site where it will be used also
presents challenges. The
weight of even a small piece is
considerable, but one that is
made up of several blocks can
weigh more than hundreds of
Sculptures need to adjust
gradually to changes in tem-
perature as they are mo\ed
from the freezer. Too much of
a temperature shock can cause
the ice to crack and even to
As the sculpture adjusts to a
warmer temperature, a thin
layer of condensation forms
on the surface of the piece but
the ice remains crystal clear as
it melts away.
Many of Riesmever,s ice
sculpture are created for
events that Shindigs capers in
private homes or larger ven-
ues. People are always fasci-
nated by ice sculptures and a
small'piece can create a theme
for a party, said Nancy
Even simple ice bowls used
with a sterile inner liner are a
creative and stylish way to
serve salads and cold dishes
for a buffet. More elaborate
displays with different levels
can be used for serving as well
as for a focal point for a table.
One of Mike Riesmeyer's
recent culinary creations was
made for a two tiered ice
sculpture made to serve fruit.
His new recipe for Shindigs
Marinated Melon filled the
top of the sculpture while a
variety of berries, melons, and
tropical flowers filled the larg-
er bottom layer..
Some other Shindigs recipes
* which the couple suggested
could be used in ice sculpture
containers or other containers
are two cold punches and,-,
theur signature cole slaw.
The following are some recipes
from Nantcyi' and Mike Riesmever.

Instant Air Conditioning & Heating
Offers Tips to Prepare Your Unit
for This Year's. Hurricane Season-
Now's the time to prepare for the current hurri-
cane season, and the professionals at Instant Air
Conditioning & Heating in Atlantic Beach have
some pre-storm tips to keep you and your air
conditioning 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-
mable 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 pro-
fessionals at Instant Air Conditioning & Heating
different. "'We're proud of the top-quality profes-
sional services we offer our customers," safd Eddy.
"We're equally proud of our straightforward pric-
ing, our 1O-pe'rcent in-writing satisfaction guaran-
tee, our Seal of Safety program and our Service Club
membership prograin 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

TV cameras add punch to tournament
Beach volleyball event
slated to air August 4
By ASHLEY MILLS
More than 60 teams from all
over Florida put on an exciting
show for the Comcast Cable
cameras Saturday and Sunday at
the World Gym Summer Blast
volleyball tournament on the
sands of Jacksonville Beach.
"It was probably the best
we've had in Jacksonville in 10
years," said tournament direc-
tor Jay Miller, who also heads
the Jacksonville Volleyball
!Club. "TV coverage made a big
The cameras not only drew. a
high caliber of competitors to
Jacksonville Beach but also
brought out spectators in
:greater numbers and con-
tributed to an overall feeling of
excitement, Miller said. It
marked the first time the popu-
lar summer series of beach vol-
leyball tournaments has been
taped for broadcast.
"It made it seem more of a
festive weekend," said Miller.
That extra energy may have
helped a Ponte Vedra team in
the men's open division to pull
off a major upset. Glenn
Stephen and Devon Koopman
were seeded second to last com-
ing into the tournament, but
knocked out the number one
team to make the semifinals on
Miller noted the weekend
event was only Stephen's and
Coopman's second time play-
ing in the open division, and
they were thrilled with their
victory though the pair did not
yty.e. p to the fials.
In the men's "dpen division,
Scott Perry and Kent Ammons
took the championship. Tony
Cothron and Reo Sorrentino
finished in second place.
Robin Mignery and Jill Cox
took first place in the women's
open division, with Jenny
Musser and Julie Chapman fin-
Musser and Chapman, of
Orlando, said television cover-
age of the event had no special
appeal for them and didn't
affect their play. Teammates for
16 years, the duo came to the
Jacksonville Beach tournament
in hopes of encountering some
different teams and competi-
"We play the same people
over and over again." Chapman
said. "There's supposed to be
good competition [here]."
In the co-ed open division,
Mike Dolan and Brittany O'Neil
finished first, and Chris
Adornetti and Tanya Rodela
came in second, according to
results posted on the
Jacksonville Beach Volleyball
The tournament is slated to
be broadcast on August 4, Miller
said. Although dealing with the
TV coverage was more work
than usual, the tournament
director said the effort was
worthwhile because it helps give
local volleyball more exposure.
While taping the event for
broadcast was a novelty, Miller
said professionalism was an
important concern. The tourna-
ment featured four camera
operators and instant replay
technology that enabled the
announcers to analyze contro-
"It was done just like it was
on an NFL game film-quality
wise," he said.
The tournament, which took
place just south of the pier in
Jacksonville Beach, was the
fourth of five this summer for
Jacksonville Beach Volleyball.
The next tournament, the 97.9
Kiss FM end of Summer Blast, is
scheduled to take place Aug. 19

this is it, the opening of sum-

Saturday at Alltel Arena is the
Place to be.
Ever since the final thrust
for last year's Super Bowl, fans
have been waiting with baited
breath to see if maestro Jack
Del Rio's gang can orchestrate
another winning season and
even make it better. The
draftees have been
announced and everything is
There will be stars galore,
including, of course, Byron
Leftwich, whom some say is
the greatest quarterback

was Jaguars owner Wayne
Weaver who said it.
There will be Donovan
Dailus, back in harness and
fit, there will be Mean John
Henderson, who can frighten
Freddie the Nightmare on
Elm Street guy, Rashean
Mathis, who can stop any foe-
on the field except Superman,
and Kyle Brady, who could
block a train.
There will be high-kickers
Josh Scobee and Chris
Hanson. There will be run-
ning star Fred Taylor if he
feels like it and a cast of
thousands, as Hollywood used
But there will be no Jimmy
Alas, good old Jimmy has
hung it up after years of
thrills and touchdowns for
the Jaguars. Our blessings and
good wishes go with him.
And unless Del Rio can find a
reasonable replacement for
Jimmy, a lot of scoring will go
with him, as well.
The public is welcome to
watch the workouts, they tell
us, as long as they check all
weapons at the gate. One
can't be too careful these days
about suspicious looking
They may be terrorists or
spies from the Tennessee team
or the NFL, looking for drugs.
The draftees will get a big
share of the attention. Is tight
end Marcedes Lewis as good
as they say?
What about Maurice Drew,
who will be without shackles
or deputies and is supposedly'
as clean as meal plates after
the team has vacuumed up
their post practice chow.
The second year lads will
get close checks, too. This is
time for Matt Jones, the
Arkansas traveler, to break out
with big plays like measles.
All this and more await our
eagerness for Saturday's mati-
nee. Is this the year?

Things are looking up for,
the Florida Gators and

Selection by the coaches for
the All-SEC team before the"
season starts is in its third
'year and although the proof
of the pudding doesn't come
until the season is over, it's ,
interesting to compare who
succeeds and who doesn't in
the preseason picking.
Coaches are ineligible to
vote for their own players.
One coach some years ago
said of preseason teams,
"They may be mainly for the
public's interest and amuse-
ment, but actually they do
some good because they
encourage the players to work
"When they know what
other coaches think of them
it means something."
It also may be some indica-
tion of what support they' can
expect in running for All-SEC
at the end of the season.
