JB police chief: Operation Clean Sweep II is working


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Beach police are step-
ping up visibility in the city's down-
town district as part of a no tolerance
approach to the recent rash of violent
crime that has plagued the area.
Operation Clean Sweep II, a special
detail in the downtown district, was
conducted In the municipal parking
lot between First and Second streets
north where the majority of the bars
and night clubs are located.
"It went fantastic," Public
Information Sgt. Tom Bingham said.
"We think that the increased police
presence and all the publicity that
went out really helped get the message


out."
Using the department's Special
Operations Van as a mobile command
center, Bingham said 52 arrests were
made from Thursday through Sunday,
mostly for misdemeanor charges such
as possession of marijuana or driving
with,a suspended license.
. Bingham said 13 people were arrest-
ed on Thursday, 17 oh Friday, 14 on
Saturday and eight on Sunday. One
felony arrest was made for carrying a
concealed firearm, he said.
"The crowds on Thursday and
Sunday were sparse," he said. "There
was a normal level of activity for a
Friday and Saturday night. For the
most part, it was very calm."
Bingham said the effort successfully


Come on down to
Jacksonville Beach and
have fun. Just don't act a
fool or we will take you
to jail.
JB Police (hief Bruce Thomoson

mitigated recent problems with large,
primarily underage crowds gathering
near the foot of Beach Boulevard.
"They never made a substantial
appearance," he said.
Gunfire was reported over the last
several weekends and investigators


had located spent shell casings on and
around the beach in past weeks.
Police attributed the random gun
, firings to the youths which were
allegedly coming to the beach from a
nightclub along Beach Boulevard that
hosts a Teen Night on Sundays.
Shortly before midnight on July 31,
police in the area saw a 17-year-old
male firing 20 to 25 rounds from an
SKS semiautomatic assault rifle into a
crowd of 200 young adults.
Michael Lamar Ricks was arrested
and charged with attempted murder
in connection with that shooting. No
one was injured.
Minutes after that shooting, a 41-
year-old Jacksonville man was shot
and killed in front of the Ocean Club


just four blocks north in a separate
incident, police reported.
Investigators said the killing likely
stemmed from an earlier fight that-
spilled out into the street. No one has
been charged in that death.
Police Chief Bruce Thomason
Monday said he was pleased with the
success of Operation Clean Sweep II
and hopes that people will heed its
message before breaking -the law in
Jacksonville Beach.
"Come on down to Jacksonville
Beach and have fun," he said. "Just
don't act a fool or we will take you to.
jail."
Operation Clean Sweep II will con-
tinue-in coming weeks, police officials
said.


Bullet hits

wall in boy's

bedroom,

no one hurt

No witnesses so
no arrest in case

by JEFFREY MINTON
STAFF WRITER
A 33-year-old Atlantic Beach
man reported that he was shot
at July 6 while outside his home
in the 50 block of Robert Street
by a man who was across the
'street-at a church; atcordingtl.a.-
police report.
No one was injured in the
incident, but after the shooting
a neighbor, whose home is next
to the victim, heard a sound and
then found a bullet slug on the
floor and a bullet hole in the
wall of his 11-year-old son's bed-
room, according to the report.
The report did not indicate
whether the child was in the
bedroom at the time of the
shooting.
When police arrived at the
scene they found fotr bullet cas-
ings at the church, located at 35
Edgar Street, and a bullet hole
along the side panel of the vic-
tim's vehicle, that was parked at
his residence.
Atlantic Beach police the next
day apprehended a 21-year-old
male suspect in the incident but
he was released after police were
denied an arrest warrant from
the State Attorney's Office due
to a lack of witnesses in the inci-
dent, according to the police
report. Patrol efforts in the inci-
dent have been suspended,
according to police.
The victim told police that the
incident took place around 5
p.m. as the suspect rode a bicy-
cle by his home and yelled "It's
my turn, I'm going to kill you
and your kids," according to the
police report. The victim's
brother then drove up in a vehi-
cle and the two began to discuss
what had just happened when
the suspect started shooting a
"long chrome gun" several
times in their direction, accord-
ing to the police report.
When the suspect was ques-
tioned, he told police that it was
the victim who shot a gun at
him. The suspect said he and the
\ictim have a "long standing
dispute" over money, according
to the report.
The suspect, however, could
not explain to police why all the
bullet holes were found in the
area were the victim was stand-
ing or why the bullet casings
were found where he was at the
church, according- to the report.
The report was not released
sooner as it was under investiga-
tion, police said. Police Chief
David Thompson said Tuesday
he will look into why the inci-
dent report was not available
sooner.

A prominent land owner in
Beaches Town Center Monday
was urged by a Neptune Beach
City Councilor to help build a
parking garage in the commer-
cial district to aid parking short-
ages.
Rad Lovett, who owns.several
commercial properties in Town
Center and either owns or leases
ri'tWh pf the area's private park-
mng, was etforethe City Cou~l-
Monday to get approval fotr his
proposed 14,400-square-foot
retail and office development at
241 Atlantic Boulevard in Town
Center currently the Neptune
Mall.
But Councilor John Weldon
took the opportunity to ask him
about building a public parking
garage, as he said parking short-


ages in Town Center have long
been a problem and Lovett's
proposed development would
eliminate roughly 12 private
parking spaces and a few along
the public right of way.
"Mr. Lovett, we need a park-
ing garage," Weldon said,
adding that Lovett and other
"movers and shakers" in the
Town Center area such as 200
First Street owner Ed Jones are
the most likely persons in the
private sector to do such a proj-
-ect. -.,.
Weldon said that the council
would be willing to work with
Lovett and any other interested
parties to accomplish such a
project.
But Lovett responded by say-
ing that land for a garage in the
Town Center is expensive and

That means sanitation rates at the start
of the new fiscal year Oct. 1 will be
increased from $13.60 to $15.77 per
, household a 16 percent increase, if the
'budget is approved next month as pro-
posed. And by 2016 the city's residential
sanitation rate would be approximately
$22.46 per household, if approved as


proposed.
City Manager Jim Hanson told the
City Commission Friday at a Budget
Workshop meeting that expenses in the
current fiscal year's sanitation budget are
expected to be $139,000 more than pro-
jected revenues. He said that residential.
sanitation rates have not changed since
1995 when they were lowered and that


increases in the city's sanitation costs call
for the immediate 16 percent customer
rate increase.
"We can do it [raise rates] gradually
after this [next fiscal year] but we need a
big jump now," Hanson told commis-
sioners at Friday.

shooting in

Jax Beach

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A 28-year-old Jacksonville
man has been arrested for pos-
sessing a weapon connected to
a fatal shooting last week in'
Jacksonville Beach.
Lawrence Critton was
charged with possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon,
police said. Critton was shot in
the left arm by Jerry Temple,
41, of Jacksonville, after the'
men argued in the 400 block of
Ist Street N. The bullet went
through his left arm and
entered his chest.
He underwent emergency
surgery Monday morning for
his injuries at Shands
Jacksonville and investigators
"don't know to what level he is
going to recover," Jacksonville
Beach Police Sgt. Tom Bingham
said Tuesday.
Temple was shot twice in the
chest and died at the scene.
The shooting is still under
investigation. Detectives will
not say whether the gun in
Critton's possession was used,
to kill Temple.
Another person of interest,
was in custody after the July 31
shooting but was interviewed
and later released, Bingham
said Tuesday.
No one has been charged
with Temple's death, police,
said. *

Some on the commission
expressed concerns over having
to raise the rates so drastically
over the next several years. And
Commissioner Mike Bomo sug-
gested that the commission
consider doing away with sani-
tation rates and instead raise the

taxes are tax deductible for

Weldon then asked Lovett if
the expenses of such a project
could be "mitigated" by the city
allowing retail along the first
level of the' garage. Lovett did
not directly respond to that
question.

they have heartache about

with higher property values.
The commission agreed to
discuss the issue further at
upcoming budget workshop
meetings.- .
Hanson said that the city's
costs for garbage service have
increased recently due to the ris-,
ing costs of fuel for the city's
contracted waste hauler and the
city's annual cost of living
adjustment in the contract. The
city is also paying the city of
Jacksonville a tipping fee for


new businesses that use the
county landfill.
The city this year agreed to
pay its waste hauler a $70,000
fuel surcharge and the cost of
living adjustment aniounted to
about $40,000, said Hanson.
The city this year expects to
pay Jacksonville roughly
$50,000 in tippage fees.
The city's contract with the
waste hauler expires in May and
the city staff is currently prepar-
ing bids for a new contract, said
Hanson.

POLICE ON SITE: Parked squarely in downtown
Jacksonville Beach Thursday through Sunday,
Jacksonville Beach Police Department's Mobile
Command Center made it clear to all that the police
presence in the area would not be ignored. In addition,
many officers from the three Beach police departments
patrolled the streets to maintain order following two
shootings the previous weekend. The increased police
presence is commendable and reassuring to residents
and merchants. Plans are to continue the presence as
needed to safeguard the area. The mobile unit is locat-

by police.

Protect the franchise


To the editor:
Registration of :a non-
Republican candidate for
county commissioner in.
District 4 effectively disenfran-
chised voters from any other
party registration from voting
for a Republican candidate.
The vote for any qualified
Republican candidate for
county commissioner was thus
restricted to registered
Republicans.
Protecting the franchise in
District 4 of St. Johns County is
a concern every four years. In
2002, the race for county com-
missioner was restricted to reg-
istered Republicans when
Douglas Laidlaw qualified as a,
candidate. In 2006 history is
repeated with the unexpected
11th-hour qualification of'
Richard Olszewski as a write-in,
candidate.
It is unethical to change
party registration simply to
vote for or against a candidate.
But this is the option that is
presented--even suggested by
letters and by editorial com-
ment, Republican voters in St.
Johns County have achieved a
monopoly when they exercise


their right to vote for a District
4 candidate.
, The challenge in the days
before the September 5 pri-
mary election is the evaluation
of the commitment of Tom
Manuel and the evaluation of
the commitment of Bruce!
Maguire., Which one is best
qualified to serve the citizens
of St. Johns County?
Money should not be the
deciding factor but both candi-.
dates must get their message to
the voters. Manuel reported
$2,050 contributions received
as of June30. Maguire report-.
ed $48,525 contributions
received as of the same period.
Both candidates have pre-
sented their qualifications and
their records at numerous can-
didate forums. Qualifications
of both have been reported in
The Leader, byreporter, Laura,
Fowler. Qualifcations of each
are summarized in the St.
Johns County Supervisor of
Elections website,

Don't mock pohtical system


To the editor:
Chutzpa is defined as unmitigated effrontery,
impudence or gall, an expression more frequent-
ly heard up north but most apropos right here in
Ponte Vedra. It.took gallons of chutzpa to write
*a letter to the editor ("Deadline approaching", 8-
2-06 Leader) proposing that voters engage in dis-
honesty. The suggestion was made that voters
should flip-flop their party registration in order
to vote in the primary of a party of which they
are not a member and then return to their true
party affiliation for the November election.
For heaven's sake, lady, if you're a Democrat,
get your own candidates and have your own pn-
mary! If you're a Republican and your candidate


,is so. weak that you need Deniocrats and
Independents to game the political party system,
get another candidate. .
The argument that, because the issues before
the Commission impact our quality., of life and
tax bills, we should have non-partisan elections
is just plain silly. With that logic, we'd have no
parties at all. If a charter government means
crossover voting, that's a good reason not to
have one!
If I haven't made myself dear, your advice is a
cynical mockery of.our political system.-

Pay substitute teachers better


To the editor:
It's a new school year and the/
Duval County School Board is
to be commended for raising
the wages for teachers, para-
professionals and clerical staff.
They will receive a 20 percent
increase over the next two
years. ,, 'I I
This will be my fourth year
as a substitute teacher, so I have
spent a lot of time in several
schools. I know from experi-
ence how much most of these
dedicated people go over and
beyond their duties to make
our schools better. I wonder
how many parents know how
much substitute teachers are
paid when they are called to go


into a classroom to teach,
when a teacher is absent,
,First, you should know what
is required to become a substi-,
tute teacher.One must have at
least 60 hours college credits
and attend a 6-hour class. Also,
applicants undergo a, F.B.I.
background check which costs
$60, and is paid for by the
applicant.
The hourly pay for a substi-
tute teacher is $8 an hour. With
a' Bachelor's degree a substitute
teacher receives $10 an hour,
and with a Master's degree the
pay increases to $10.85. The
school board hasn't increased
wages for substitute teachers
for at least 5 years, maybe


longer. As everyone knows, the
cost of living has skyrocketed
,from where it was then. For
some perspective; with $8 1)
you can go to a movie but you
can't have popcorn, or 2) get 2
gallons of gas and a fountain
drink, or 3) sometimes, you
can find a place to get a hair-
cut, (with a coupon).
For what substitute teachers
do, $ 8 an hour is inadequate.
Good substitute teachers are
an integral part in the educa-
tion process. Why have they
not been included in salary
increases with everyone else,
including the school board?

BEAM says thanks for assisting school kids


To the editor:
It has been one week since the 2006 Beach to
School with BEAM was held on Saturday, July
29. The program was as remarkable this year as it
has been for the past 12 years thanks to the gen-
erous, giving nature of the Beaches and West
Beaches community.
Over 230 volunteers participated in the total
program. Some volunteers helped put together
825 school supply "bags, some painted pencil
boxes, others set up for the event and then
helped 825 children and their families shop at
Back to School with BEAM.
Some ran the Back to School show department
while other Volunteers helped reset the lovely,
new Family Life Center.
Over $25,000 has been collected to date so
that BEAM could provide all children with new
backpacks, school supplies, personalized pencil
boxes, socks, underwear and shoe vouchers.
In addition, more than 200 children received
dental care on the Smile Express dental van as
part of the Back to School program.
BEAM is extremely appreciative to all who
gave their time, clothing, backpacks, school sup-
plies and financial support for this annual event.


The Beaches community is unequaled in its
commitment to the betterment of otr neigh-
bors.
The cumulative record shows just how amaz-
ing the Beaches community is. In 13 years of
Back to School with BEAM,'10,067 children have
been helped, 91,938 items of clothing have been.
given away, more than 2,046 volunteers have
helped make the event happen and $218,629
has been donated to ensure the success of the
program.
Thank you Beaches and West Beaches for your
volunteer and financial support of BEAM and
Back to School with BEAM. In addition, BEAM is
extremely thankful for the tremendous coverage
and commitment of editor Kathy Bailey and The
Leader to Back to School with BEAM.
Without the exposure that The Leader pro-
vides, Back to School with BEAM would have lit-
tle chance to assist the children and families it
helps. So thank you for the tremendous job you
do, Beaches Leaded And a warm and special trib-
ute to all of our caring beach friends!

T he national adult bever-
age in Cuba when I was
there 50 years ago was
arguably the Cuba Libre
(ingredients: rum and Coke).
As I write this, Cuban presi-
dent Fidel Castro is alleged to
be recovering from serious sur-
gery. If he passes on, I imagine
there will be many a celebra-
tory Cuba Libre (translation:
"free Cuba") quaffed in
Miami.
A big question, however, is
What would happen here if
Cuba then opened' up for
American tourism? Quien
sabe? (Who _knows?).--My
hunch is that there would be
,a cavalry. charge of epic pro-
portions as thundering herds
of Americans, especially
Floridians, headed there to
enjoy a vacation in a groovy
place that's only 90 miles
9,,y ,frbm 66ur 'shores-2-so '
Near rdyet so'o'eN n
I do know this: I would like
to resee the island, but prefer-
ably at the rates that prevailed
in 1956 B.C. (before Castro).
My well-thumbed copy of
now-defunct Pan American
Airways' World Guide from
back then includes mind-
blowing luxury hotel rates.
The plush Nacional de'Cuba
in Havana charged $18 to $27
per night, single. Other first-
class accommodations there
went for anywhere from $17
to $6. (You could add around
$7 per day for meals.)
Yet, those amounts were for
one room. My wife anid I
along with another cotiple
stayed at an apartment hotel
called the Rosita de Hornedo.
In our suite, there were two
swanky bedrooms, each with
Sbath, a' kitchen (which we.
didn't use--restaurants were
too cheap), maid's quarters,
and a posh living room with a
balcony overlooking the blue-
green ocean. The total tab per
day for the four of us was $30!
I still have my checkout bill.
Of course, expecting 1956
. hotel room rates would be,.
bushwah even if George W.
were to let us go. The Italian
worldwide reservation website
venere.com shows that the
Cuban charges have jumped
like a kangaroo on steroids.
The current room cost for the
Nacional is $160. There are a
few rock-bottom flop facili-
ties, one with rooms as low as
$44, but maybe the running
water comes from the ceiling
and the elevator does the
rumba.
For Jaxons, I visualize
instead a Carnival cruise ship
sailing from here, full of
Gators, Jaguars, and other
Bold City wildlife anxious to
sample the wild life on the
south end of the Florida
Straits. If those pulsating
Latin performances are still
on at nighteries such as the
Tropicana and the Sans Souci,
y'all wouldn't be disappoint-
ed. Bring your own bongos.

Competition. This is what.
makes for great choices and.
price options. l or too long
the Beaches have been held
captive to a rather slow
evolving community. Today,
like it or not the sleepy
Beach community I was
raised in is a distant past.
Specifically, if you live at
either end of the Beaches,
you have three primary
choices for your construc-
tion and home improve-
ment needs; Drive west and
crosl the "Ditch" to Girven
Road and Atlantic Blvd, or
cross the "Ditch" or JTB to
Southside Blvd. The local
choice is convenient, but
seems to not have the choic-
es the other national retail-
ers' offer, and they do hot
offer any price match or
lowest price guarantees!
Who cares? I do!
Change. I for one will not
only appreciate having a
national, very competitive
retailer here at the Beaches,;
it will save me money. Gas
prices are not going to go
back down and .every mile
less I have to drive by hav-
ing national choices right
here at the Beaches is money
in my pocket.
Having a national retailer
right in our community will
change_ our buying db'
and effect demographics, For
sure.' However having 'a
vacant retail space is also a
change I did not like and
that brings a whole different'
set of issues, over the long
run. Land options are at a
limited premium in our
Beaches communities, and
having access to a national
price competitive retailer
that will take a vacant loca-
tion instead of building a
new one gets my vote! I will
agree not all change is per-.
ceived as good, but this one
will also have a safety factor
to help meet the heeds of
impending Hurricane disas-
ters by having more supplies:
available for any given emier-
gency! .
More Choices. This is one
of those silly things that
make America Great! We
have choices most other
countries do- not have. Do
we need a financial location
on every corner?, Probably
not; but then again, if there
was not a market for such
competition, rest assured
they would not be here. The
same is true for
Convenience Stores and Gas
stations. It is simply called
supply and demand!
In closing there are those
that believe this new nation-
al retailer will bring Doom'
and Glpom ,to our area.
Reduce property values,
increase crime and cause
traffic problems. The City of
JB, by1 mandate, secures a
Traffic Study for this type of
infrastructure addition, and
that study is public knowl-
dge. To the naysayers, the
study shows no real increase
in traffic concerns. How can
that be? Well, for one there
are three primary entrances
into the South Beach SC,
and one secondary entrance,
totaling four entrances. The
traffic light on A1A is right
at the entrance to the center
and exit ramps to JTB,
quelling the fears' of "town-
ies"- crossing the "ditch" to
shop at "our" location. Who
wins, other than the retailer
and people who want this?
The JB tax base will increase
(better for all of us) and
approximately 150 new jobs
will be available. Works for
me!

Support Home Depot for Jax Beach


To the editor:
I must reply to Mr. Dean
Thompson's vitriolic letter
against Home -Depot. He
seems to be everywhere,
.against everything. He ig
against Wal-Mart in Neptune'
Beach, .citing very much the
same statistics he does in his
anti-Home Depot letters. And
why would that be? He does-
n't live in Neptune Beach,
does he? His letter says Jax
Beach. ,Why is he worried
about Neptune? If he is look-
ing to keep the "laid back
beach town atmosphere" I
hate to tell him. That's long
gone., We lost all that when
the city condemned land and'
sold it to developers to use for
What they wanted. We now
have monstrosities springing
up everywhere there's a square
inch of space. If I see' some-
thing else condemned for yet
another condo high rise, I
think I'll be ill.
Home Depot doesn't
belong? Well, where better
does it belong, than along the
beach, with hurricanes?
During the threat of even a.
large storm somewhere out
there, many people panic and
hit the road. 6 miles? Well
maybe he lives at City Hall,
but a lot of beach people are.a
lot further away. And have
you seen the roads when all
these people are out there, try-
ing to find their supplies?
While Mr. Thompson may
have all needed supplies stock-
piled, an awful lot of people
\don't. They don't have the
money to waste on extras -
just in case. They're trying to
live day to day. And what
about, handicapped people?
Fighting crowds, trying to pre-
pare, etc. can cost someone
their life. Does' he not care
that perhaps they need their
supplies close to home? And,
where is the pride in living at
the Beaches -and shopping at
the Beaches?,
Not eto mention the cost of
gato sit in ows
to sit in trfk TOZ w


how long, to get to Arlington,
only to find they are out of all
the things you need? How
expensive is that, especially
for those, of us on fixed
incomes? All those nervous
Nellies are going to be on the
road either escaping the storm
, or trying to find their emer-
gency supplies. While Mr.
Thompson may' be able to
afford all the gas he wants for
his SUV, a lot of us only get
out when we have to, due to
the high price of gasoline.
How does Mr. Thompson'
know all the "facts" he cited
in his letter? More people to
the shopping center means
that more people will shop in
the other stores. Hubby goes
to Home Depot, wife goes to
Stein-Mart. Where is Mr.
Thompson getting, these
"facts" he so blatantly spouts?
And landscaping and park-
ing places? Where does Mr.
Thompson get his "facts" ?
Does he make them up out of
whole cloth? Well, I suppose
if you are adamant enough,
you can say mopt anything
you'd like.
Home Depot has already
.said they would put in a buffer
zone between the business
behind their store, for loading
purposes. What else does Mr.
Thompson want? '
Day laborers? Haven't you,
Mr. Thompson, been aware of
the homeless problem we in
Jacksonville Beach have? Do I
hear you advocating for
homeless shelters anywhere?
Nope. Just your nose-in- the-
air superior attitude. And at
least, the day laborers are try-
ing to work!
Noise? Have you been in
the shopping center lately,
and hear the noise from all
the boom boxes, traffic and
people shouting? One more
noise, more or less, isn't going
to make a difference. You can.
hear all the heavy traffic,
sirens, etc., from the shopping
center, so what's the big cdeal?,
I ,i ,Homrpe Dep9t .9perl
quite early, most of the supply,


trucks will be unloading their
wares .long before most other
retailers are getting out of bed.
So, what other retailers
would be vying for this space
that Mr. Thompson thinks is
prime real estate? So far, the
old K-Mart still sits empty, and
even with the new store occu-
pying the space Food Lion was
in, and all the customers 'of
Stein-Mart and Bealls, it'sstill
a shabby shopping center, in
comparison to the other side
of JTB.
Have you, Mr. Thompson,
visited all the Home Depots
and discovered that each and
every one of them are stand-
alones? No? Well, you
shouldn't say somethifig you
can't back up.
We do have a responsibility
and obligation, to allow Home
Depot. For the services they
provide that are uniquely
beach driven., San Marco
doesn't need the plywood and
plastic sheeting and genera-
tors like we at the beach do.
But then, if they: built in San
Maro, I'm sure .Mr.
Thompson would have 'some-
thing to say about that as well.
As to evacuations If the
beach is shut down, Home
Depot too, will shut down. So
what extra traffic will they be
interfering with?
Classy, upscale, quiet and
neat shopping center. Well,
quiet is the operative word.
So many businesses have left
that shopping center since it
was too "quiet" to make
money. We should be glad for
Home Depot to be here, rather
than excoriate its existence.
Home Depot's 'presence will
encourage me to shop the cen-
ter more frequently, as I pick)
up things for use at home.
The bottom line is this:
Money. And whose pocket it
goes into. I urge everyone to
turn out and support the
Home Depot coming to our
vicinity.

JB eases

rules on

operating

a taxi

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Operating a cab in
Jacksonville Beach just got a
little easier. The City Council
Monday approved an ordi-
nance eliminating the public
hearing process required for
taxi drivers to operate within
city limits.
The prior ordinance
required, potential taxi opera-
tors to- fle' aj. ap'l'jOatjon,
with ithe city clerk's office
and appear at a hearing
before the City Council to
obtain a certificate of con-
venience and necessity.
Each vehicle was also
required to be inspected
every 90 days by a, certified
automobile mechanic and be
available every 90 days for
inspection by the police
department.
According to the new ordi-
nance, the city will accept
the medallion issued by the
City of Jacksonville and
require drivers to follow
insurance guidelines outlined
by the state.
Operators must still obtain
a local business tax receipt
from Jacksonville Beach in
addition to the approval from
Jacksonville.
"For years to get a certifi-
cate of need [taxi operators]
had to go before the City
Council for a public hearing
just to do business in
Jacksonville Beach," City
Manager George Forbes said.'
"We will still require a busi-
ness tax license from
Jacksonville Beach but this
greatly simplifies the,
process."
The inspection schedule
was deemed "antiquated"
and not considered "reason-
able requirements" given the
dependability of the average
car and the manpower
required to conduct the
inspections, city officials
said. '.
All taxi cab operators must
keep in the vehicle a copy of
the business tax receipt, vehi-
cle for hire permit issued by
the Jacksonville Department
of Environmental and
Regulatory Services, current
inspection permits, Florida'
drivers license and state regis-
tration and insurance.
The council amended the
insurance liability requirer
merits from $100,000 'to
$125,000 in accordance with'
recent changes to the state's
insurance policies for taxi
operators.

Ocean swimming


takes nerve, training


pnolo by LAURA FOWLER
Gigi Pelletier leads a pack of senior citizens through Ponte Vedra Lake Saturday morning on a two and a half hour kayak tour
through the Guana reserve.




Seniors prove age not a factor




when it comes to kayaking


STAFF I'RITER
In their 59 years
together as husband,
and wife, John and
Delores Bates of Ponte
Vedra have shared


many experiences.
. John, 82, and. Delores, 77,
have toured foreign lands
and waters, seeking adventure
in dozens of distant coun-
tries.
But Saturday presented an
entirely new experience, and
it was practically in their
back yard: kayaking through
the Guana reserve.
"1 thought it was great,"
said Delores after paddling
for two and a half hours
through the marshy Ponte
Vedra Lake, located south of
ickler Road and west of
State Road A1A.
"1 could have done it all
day long," she said with a
huge grin.
Saturday's trip, designed for
senior citizens in Ponte
Vedra, was organized by Julie
Wright, who has been Ponte
Vedra site coordinator for the
St. Johns County Council on


photo oy LAURA FOWLER
Gigi Pelletier paddles to catch up with the rest of the group' of
kayaking seniors Saturday.


Aging since June 1.
With a master's degree in
environmental science and a.
kayak of her own, Wright
said she thought the activity'
would be a great opportunity
to introduce some Ponte
Vedra seniors to a new experi,-
ence.
"Several people said they
never knew that [the Guana
reserve] was there," Wright
said in an interview Monday.
With two guides from a.
kayaking business, several
senior citizens from Ponte
Vedra, each in a.kayak sup-


plied b' the company,
leisurely wound their way
around' mounds of marsh
grass and through shallow,
brackish waters of the lake.
Their pace was slow and
relaxed, but their energy was
'ample and their enthusiasm
was overflowing.
They spotted herons,
cranes and even a rosetta
spoonbill rare for this time
of year.
Recalling a story one of the
guides told about mistakenly
paddling her kayak over a 9-
foot alligator, the group


respectfully kept.theirdis-I nnih
tance when a 6-foot gator ',
surfaced nearby.
But the spirit of the group
could not be dampened by
imposing reptiles,'and they
forged ahead, undeterred.
That is, of course, until a
few paddlers ventured into
shallow water and suddenly
found themselves stuck in
the mud.
Instead of panicking, how-
ever, the wayward few mere-
ly laughed at their luck as
they waited for the guides to
come to their aid.
When the tour was over,
the five Ponte Vedra paddlers
said they wouldn't hesitate to
take the trip again.
"I would probably bring
the whole family [next
time]," said first-timer Joyce
Scott, who vowed to become
a member of the senior cen-
ter, at 148.Canal Blvd., Ponte
Vedra.
Kayaking is just one of
many activities that Wright
hopes to bring to the senior
center in an attempt to spice
things up and attract new
members, she said.


.lt takes a certain amount of
courage to swim a mile or
two in the ocean.
It also takes a considerable
amount of nerve to sponsor ,,
an ocean swim.
The HammerHead Triathlon
Club, also known as .
HammerHead Racing, mitigat-
ed some of the risk of treading
in deep water during
Saturday's HammerHead
Ocean Marathon.
HHR, founded at the
Beaches in November 1999,
provided bright orange buoys
and a flotilla of lifeguards for
the inaugural event, which
featured swim distances of 2.5
and 1.24 miles in lefigth.
More than 100 brave souls
(73 in the long course, 52 in
the short) turned out for the
event, which' ended near the
Jacksonville Beach pier.
A disclaimer on the entry
form warned the weak of
heart: "This is not the time to
test your open water skills for
the first time!"
Ocean swimming is nothing
like pool swimming. The sea is
never entirely flat. Waves tend
to knock swimmers off course
and off their stroke.
Jellyfish stings are also quite
common.
And no matter how hard
you try, you can never swim
the course in a straight line.
Proficiency in pool swim-
ming is measured by a stop-
watch. Ocean swimming is
also a timed event, but its
reward can't be measured in
just increments of time.
Finishing is an accomplish-
ment in itself.
Former Beaches realtor and
swimming enthusiast
Townsend Hawkes created the
- diw4nis,Ocean-Maratheniine -:)
1985 as 'an alternative to the
lifeguard-only Meninak Ocean
Marathon.
The Kiwanis Club of the
Beaches sponsored the annual
event until 2004.
The HammerHeads took
over this year, led by .the
mother/daughter team of
'Susan and Chrissy Wallis.
Susan Wallis is a founder of
the 200-member triathlon
club and its current president.
Chrissy Wallis is a former
Fletcher High swimmer who


JOHNNY
WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
once finished as high as
fourth overall in the Meninak
Swim and was the second
female overall in the Kiwanis
Swim as recently as 2003.
Their athletic credentials
alone ensured the success of
Saturday's event.
As for me, my time won't
go down in any record books.
My training existed of 1,500
yards at the UNF pool three
days before the event. That's
hardly peak conditioning.
My first goal was to finish.
My second goal was not to be
lapped by the leaders.
Some goals die easier than
others.
The long course leaders
passed me as I was nearing the
finishing buoy and I had a
1.25-mile head start.
One guy whisked by me like
a submarine on a torpedo run.
And I never managed to pass
that elderly lady in the white
bathing cap.
Swimming is the great
equalizer. You don't need the
body of Adonis or the figure
of a "Baywatch" girl to swim
long distances in the ocean. It
just takes training and the
* nerve to leave the security of .. -
the shoreline foran hour or A
so.
And age isn't a factor.
Saturday's youngest swimmer
was 11. The oldest was 68.
Next year, I may tackle the
longer distance, something I
haven't done in more than a
decade.
Then again, I may just try
to improve on this year's tur-
tle-like pace of 59 minutes.
And hope the leaders don't
lap me again.

825 children in need of
school supplies.
"What is amazing is the
number of college students
who returned to help even
when they didn't need the
service hours," said BEAM
coordinator Karen Wolfson.
School-age children
received shoe vouchers, new
underwear and socks, back-
packs, pencil boxes, school
and dental supplies and gen-
tly-worn clothing.
Students also were treated
to new books donated by the
Jacksonville Jaguars
Foundation.
More than 10,000 used
clothing items were available
at the event. Another 4,000-
plus new items were also
handed out. Dignity U Wear
contributed several hundred
new shirts and hats for the
event.
"I couldn't believe how
cool the personalized pencil
boxes are for kids," said
BEAM volunteer Robert
Devers, the community serv-
ice coordinator for Oceanside
Rotary Club.
"I loved how all the kids
got so excited about being
able to pick whatever they
wanted. It was a great experi-
ence."
BEAM received more thaf--
$25,000 in donations to
sponsor the 13th annual
event and its summer dental
program, "Put a Smile on a
Child."
According to Wolfson, the
dental program saw a record

"Our beach community is
unique in the way it cares

*
Determining the derivative
of y times 23 to the 15th
power is tough enough.
Figuring it out on just a few
hours of sleep could be
almost impossible.
With a new school year
beginning, families may be
thinking more about school
supplies and fall fashions
than breaking summer sleep
habits.
But University of Florida
pediatricians say a school-
year sleeping schedule is just
as important as being armed
with No. 2 pencils.
"Sleep deprivation can have
a pretty significant effect on
concentration, memory and
even mood," said Dr. Anne-
Marie Slinger, a UF assistant
Ot6f6sir of pediatrics in the
College of Medicine.
"If a child is chronically
sleep deprived, it's far more
difficult for them to partici-
pate in classroom activities
and learn new things. If they
are tired, they won't be
engaged."
Children generally need at
least nine hours of uninter-
rupted sleep to be ready for
learning, Slinger said. Too lit-
tle sleep not only makes it
harder for students to retain
information in class, it also
makes it harder for them to
wake up, leaving little time
for a good breakfast. A
healthy breakfast is a key part
of keeping the brain firing on
all cylinders throughout the
day, she said.
"If a child doesn't have
enough sleep, waking up can
be a very difficult process,"
she said. "If they're rushing
and don't have much time to
eat and can barely get every-


thing in their backpacks, it
can make getting to school in
the morning a very stressful
time."
The transition back to
school can be particularly dif-
ficult for adolescents, Slinger
said. Many teens tend to stay
up late and often wake up at
noon during the summer.
"Their whole sleep-wake
cycle has to shift to a greater
degree," Slinger said.
Busy schedules and early
morning school start times
often leave many teens yawn-
ing during the day even after
they have eased back into the
school year, according to the
National Sleep Foundation.
NSF studies have shown
that only 15 percent of ado-
lescents get at least 8.5 hours
of sleep each night and near-
ly one-quarter get 6.5 hours
or less. This lack of sleep also
contributes to sleep debt,
which many adolescents
relieve on the weekend, sleep-
ing in and throwing their
sleep cycles off again, accord-
ing to the NSF.
Research has shown that
teens' bodies are wired to fall
asleep at 11 p.m. and wake up
around 8 a.m., and some high
schools now open later to
meet the sleep needs of teens,
said Kyla L. Wahlstrom, asso-
ciate director and research
associate with the Center for
Applied Research and
Educational Improvement at
the University of Minnesota.
"The medical research has
shown that teenagers have a
need for more sleep than the
general public would
assume," she said. "Sleep has
a direct impact on learning
and emotions."
To help children and teens
establish a healthy sleeping
schedule, Slinger recom-
mends parents schedule activ-
ities that assist the transition
to bedtime. A routine such as
brushing teeth, taking a bath
and reading a story can help
children wind down.

To give teens time to get
ready for bed, it's best to set a


The City of Atlantic Beach's recreation board sponsored F.A.C.E. programs at Atlantic Beach and Mayport elementary schools last
spring. F.A.C.E. is a dynamic program combining confidence, growth and positive attitude. The focus is on fitness, character edu-
cation to build self-esteem and respect. Third and fourth graders from both schools display their certificates of completion with
instructor Kirk Farber of Atlantic Beach.


10 p.m. curfew for socializing
on the phone or computer,
Wahlstrom said. Slinger rec-
ommends that children do
homework earlier in the
evening and that they avoid
watching TV or playing video
games near bedtime. Slinger
also recommends keeping tel-
evisions out of children's bed-
rooms.
"They're better off reading
or listening to music or a
book on tape before bed," she
said.
Starting a new school year
can be stressful for kids, but
establishing a routine can
help, not only for sleep
habits, but also for home-
wotk, afterschool activities
and meals, experts say.

Teenagers shine in Ocean Marathon race


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

The first-ever HammerHead
Ocean Marathon proved a rous-
ing success Saturday, with 52
swimmers completing the 1.25-
mile course and another 73
competing in the 2.5-mile race.
Teenage swimmers dominat-
ed the event as a parade of
Bolles School girls swim team
members emerged from the
water first with 15-year-old
Chelsea Dicks, Cassie Craddock,
18, Kylee Talwar, 15, and Axie
Phillips, 15, sweeping places
one through four in the 1.25-
mile swim.
Harrison Brown, 19, won the
2.5-mile race in 50:55 followed
by 17-year-old Justin Leemis
who crossed the finish line in
52 minutes flat.
Eighteen-year-old Rachel
Sale, who graduated from
Fletcher High this year and will
attend Georgia Southern this
fall, was second the girls 18-
and-Under category of the
longer race in 54:40. Sale fin-
ished seventh overall while 16-
year-old Melissa Steele was sixth
overall in a time of 54:36.
"We've been getting in shape
for the swim season which
starts later this month but we
haven't swam for a week," said
Dicks, who attends Bishop
Kenny High School but corn-

er at the Bolles School, cross-

petes for Bolles. "There's really
no way to train for this I
think I'll be sore [on Sunday)."
Dicks completed the course
in 31:05, followed closely by
Bulldogs teammate Craddock
who crossed the finish line in
32:08.
"I've done one of these once
before, in Fort Lauderdale," said
Craddock, "but it's still really


tough. We kind of knew we
were ahead, but you can't really
tell because sometimes the
waves knock you off course a
little bit."
Both Dicks and Craddock
compete in the girls 100-yard
freestyle at Bolles. While they
have been swimming as much
as 2,000 yards a day in practice
for the upcoming season, which
begins Aug. 14, both said the
ocean marathon is something
completely different.
"For one thing the water was
a lot colder than in our pool,"
said Craddock. "It seemed like it
was 70-something degrees. But I
think the colder water is actual-
ly better for a race like this.
"The other thing is we don't
have to deal with the waves
when we're swimming at
Bolles."
A relatively smooth sea and
no sign of jellyfish greeted
HammerHead participants
Saturday morning just south of
the Jacksonville Beach Pier.
Those swimming in the longer
race boarded a bus which
brought them to the starting
point some 2.5 miles south of
the pier.
Entrants in the 1.25-mile
event climbed aboard Ocean
Rescue vehicles and were trans-
ported to the site of their start.
Event coordinator Susan
Wallis said 53 competitors


signed up to participate on race
day, bringing the total number
of swimmers to 125 participat-
ing in the inaugural Hammer-
Head Ocean Mara-thon.
Complete results will be post-
ed at hammerheadtriathlon-
club.com.

SPORTS EDITOR
After a week of preseason
training camp the Jacksonville
Jaguars took the field at Alltel
Stadium Friday night for an
intra-squad scrimmage in front
of 7,855 fans. But those hoping
to catch a first glimpse of the
Jaguars much-hyped downfield
offense left disappointed.
. While the offense prevailed
29-15 over the defense, big plays
were few and some difference-
makers on offense
never even got a
chance. -
"We have a lot
of work to do. I
expected] us to
be a little crisper
than we were
offensively,"
said head coach
Jack Del Rio. "I thought
defensively we did some
really good things."
Del Rio made the rules for
Friday's scrimmage, setting up
the offense on the defense's 35-
yard line in each of the first
three series. While the first two
drives stalled, kicker Josh Scobee
connected on field goals of 47
and 50 yards to put some points
on the board.
In its third effort. the offense
finally clicked when third-string
quarterback Quinn Gray
hooked up with wide receiver
Fred Stamps for a 35-yard TD.
Fans hoping to see rookie
tight end Marcedes Lewis catch
some passes over the middle
instead got to see the: UCLA%
alum block for former Bruins
teammate and fellow rookie
Maurice Jones-Drew. Lewis
sealed off the right corner on an


end run, enabling Jones-Drew to
scamper 31 yards down the side-
line before the running back
was pushed out of bounds at the
3-yard line.
"It was a chance to go out
there for real with the lights
on," Jones-Drew said. "I made
some pretty decent plays. I
messed up on a few things, but I
have to go back out there and
make sure I don't do it again. I
never try to make the same mis-
take twice."
Two plays
after his long
run, Jones-
Drew was
dancing in
the end zone
S after plowing
y y his way to pay-
dirt on a 3-yard
plunge.
.. "Maurice had a nice
V run and we just missed
him on a screen [pass],"
Del Rio said. "He showed some
of that explosive quality that he
has. He has that ability to get
out in the open field and then
really get going. I thought we
got a little taste of that tonight."
in terms of the passing game,
starting QB Byron Leftwich was
6-of-ll for 36 yards, second-
stringer David Garrard connect-
ed on 3-of-5 passes for 14 yards
and Gray hit 4-of-10 for 67
yards including the TD to
Stamps.
Despite the offense's "win" it
was the Jaguars' defense that
rose to the occasion in the
scrimmage. Players in the sec-
ondary broke up a number of
passes and the defensive line
consistently stuffed the run.
"Our defense is pretty good
and they've been practicing


Shepler takes ninth at U.S.


FROM STAFF

Ponte Vedra Beach's Kirsty
Shepler competed in the U.S.
Senior National Diving
Championships in Indiana-
polis last weekend. Shepler, a
sophomore at Nease High
School, finished ninth in the
women's 10-meter platform
event.
In the 10-meter preliminary
round, Shepler finished fifth
with a score of 266.20. The top
18 divers advanced to the semi-
finals where she placed 11th
with a score of 235.20.
The top 12 finishers in the
semifinals went on to dive in
the final.
Shepler qualified for the
nationals through her placing
at a qualifying tournament in
Bloomington, Indiana in mid-
July.


The national finals included
2004 U.S. Olympic team mem-
ber Cassandra Cardinell and
divers from the University of
Kentucky, Ohio State, the
University of Miami and
Indiana University.
Jessica Livingston won the
10-meter platform event with a
score of 355.75. She was fol-
lowed by Haley lshimatsu in
second and Cardinell in third.
Shepler also teamed with
Allison Barr, of Orlando, to
compete in the women's 10-
meter platform synchronized
diving finals.
Competition took place at
the Indiana University/Purdue
University at Indianapolis
Natatorium.
The 15-year-old returned to
Nease this week and will dive
for the Panthers swim team
this fall. Nease's season begins
Aug. 24 against St. Augustine.


against the same plays for a
week," Del'Rio said.
As the Jaguars march toward
Saturday's first preseason game
at Miami against the Dolphins,
some underdogs are making
names for themselves in tralni-
ing camp. Outside linebacker
Brian Iwuh, an undrafted free-
agent, and former Tennessee
Volunteers defensive lineman
Tony McDaniel are two exam-
ples of unheralded players who
may survive final roster cuts on
Sept. 2.
"It's no secret I like undrafted
free agents," Del Rio has said. "I
like guys who come in [and] are
smart, tough and compete.
We've got some guys that are
doing that Brian lwuh is
going to get an opportunity. I
like him."
As Del Rio and staff meet to
discuss the first round of cuts,
there are intriguing possibilities.
For example, the Jaguars cur-
rently have four tight ends on
their roster, plus two others who
can play the position.
Veteran Kyle Brady is the
starter and is valued more for his
blocking ability than pass-catch-
ing. Rookie Lewis has demon-
strated great hands and at 6-feet,
6-inches and 265 pounds consti-
tutes a big target over the middle.
Third on the depth chart is
George Wrightster who has
improved his blocking ability
the past two seasons. Brian
Jones, an undrafted rookie who
made the team in 2004, does
double-duty as a special teams
stalwart.
Todd Yoder is mainly a special
teamer and Joe Zelenka serves
mostly as the team's long-snap-
per, but both can be pressed into
duty at tight end if needed.

JAGUARS TRAINING CAMP


Preseason success is no


indicator for NFL teams


S tarting his fourth season
as head coach of the
Jacksonville Jaguars, Jack
Del Rio spoke last Saturday of
getting the kinks out for the
team's opening preseason
game down in Miami this
week.
Fans can, only hope the Del
Rio staff has done just that
during the sweltering labor
the Jaguars have put in during
these days'at Alltel camp
grounds. Despite what looks
like a promising crop of .-
draftees and presumed good
health among the troops,
there are still "kinks" that
haven't been ironed out in
scrimmages and head-butting
among themselves.,
A real game against the
Dolphins might solve some of
theproblems. This isn't a
mock game as they played last
Saturday at home. This isn't
pitty-pat where the No. 1
quarterback is protected like a
tot carrying eggs. This is real,
even if it is technically an
exhibition.
Del Rio said he was encour-
aged after viewing the video of
Friday night's scrimmage, that
on film the offense didn't look
as weak as it did on the field.
Video, video on the wall,
who's the best of all?:Maybe a
few plays came within inches
of working, maybe their two
Jaguars squad teams came
close to scoring iil the scrim-
mages thit really count.'
How important are these
"preseason" (if you call them
What they are exhibition
games, the NFL might sue
you for maligning their prod-
uct, which they still charge
good prices for) games? Do6
they really get the teams in:
fighting mood for the season?
Ask the players and most
say they ought to be cut down
to maybe two instead of four
games.
There's nothing easy about
lifting that barge and toting
that bale under.blistering heat.
It's bad enough every year, but
this year's furnace heat has
'been more cruel, while boss
rhan Del Rio and staff make
sire'players get enough cotton
iin for the day.,
The Jaguars have had, only
one perfect (4-0) preseason. In

Something had them ready.
If preseason results prove
anything, then Del Rio's career
,here has been on the positive
side. in three years he's gone
8-4,.including a break-even,
year last summer.
The Jaguars opened with a
27-17 'decision over Miami
here and followed with a 20-
17 win over Tampa Bay.
.,,PLooked,like,a (ine start, but .:
'then they lost a home-game p
Atlanta, 23-7, and followed
that with a disappointing drop,
to Dallas, 27-20.


When the Jags opened the
2005 campaign.with an
impressive 26-14 win over
Seattle, things looked right on ,
schedule, then they began the
seesaw letdown. Jacksonville
lost the next week, badly, to
Indianapolis, 10-3, Then they
went up and defeatedthe New
York Jets, 26-20 in overtime..
But to chill the cheers of
Jags fans, they came home
and lost an embarrassing game
to Denver, 20-". It was as
though the coaches had come
home and left the rest of the ..
team in New York.
The Jaguars bounced back
with a win over Cincinnati
here, followed that with an
impressive victory at
Pittsburgh, 23-17; in overtime.
, It looked like they were finally
on track, then they went to St.
Louis and should stayed
home. They lost a three-point-
er, 24-21.
If anything had been proved
to that point, it was that Del
Rio.'s team. wAs as unreliable as
barber shop rumors.
Jacksonville won its next five
straight Houston and
Baltimore here, Tennessee,
Arizona and Cleveland on the
road.
Standing 9-3, it was figured
that the offense had finally
grown up until the Jags lost
to the Indy Colts for the sec-
ond time in the season. They
showed again their inconsis-
tency by winning three
straighttoughies: over San
Francisco, 10-9, Houston, 38-
20, and against their old
lovers, the Tennessee Titans,
40-13.
In spite of it all, a fine fin-
ish; 'right?
Wrong.
The now-you-cheer-now-
you-cry boVs strutted into
their first playoff game since
1999 and fell flat on their'
pusses-at New England, 28-3.
It wasn't even .close. The
wavering Jaguars had done it
again.
.To finish the year, 12-4, is
great for a team that had wan-,
dered around in the Twilight
Zone for four years, but it's a
loser if you're shooting'for a
chajnpio'ship. ,. '..
A winning start is not only
good, it's a necessity. It should
start Saturday in Miami. ,

a points system set up by head coach Jack Del Rio gave most of the evening's advantages to
players on the offensive side of the ball.
