L- ... Neighbors balk at road paing plan
by LIZA MITCHELL
.\ special assessment proposed foi prop-
eity owners along an unpaved stretch of
load in Jacksonville Beach was chal-
lenged Monday by property owners
claiming they shouldn't have to pay for
work they don't need.
The City Council voted to defer a reso-
lution assessing property owners a total
of $165.54 pet frontage foot to install city
standard infrastructure on a portion of-
20th Street North.
Mayor Fland Sharp said the City
Council will vote on the resolution at the'
next scheduled council meeting Sept. 4.toO
allow officials time to review all sides of
the issue. .
Meanwhile owner of 3
vacant lots blocked

"I'm sure everything's fine," he said.
"Let's give it two weeks to look and make
sure we are on solid ground."
The project will include the construc-
tion of a new city standard road on 20th
Street North lust south of 9th Avenue for
a total cost of $105,946.92.
Allen Hall of Atlantic Beach said he also
objects to the assessment but as the
owner of three undeveloped lots on 20th
Street North. he is willing to pay whate'-
er it takes to begin building on his prop-
Hall applied for a building permit for
one of his lots in August, 2004 but his
request was denied by the Public Works
Department citing infrastructure con-
cerns, "including the need to pave that
section of 20th Street North."
"I've been patiently waiting for two
years for the situation to get resolved," he
said. "I'm glad to see we have finally
reached this point to bring the street up
to where it needs to be because it's the
only street left in Jacksonville Beach that
is not paved."

City officials say that animals

life threatening injures when
allowed to roam unleashed in
public areas such as the beach.
And while the maximum fine
the city can levy on a pet's
owner is $50 for a first-time ani-
mal control violation, the med-
ical costs associated with the,
injured victim can often be. in
the' thousands of dollars, say
The City Council at its
fMonida ; workshop meeting
instructed the cit' staff to draft a
change to the city's animal con-
trol ordinance to create a sepa-
rate fine when an animal injures
someone. The change is subject
to two more votes by the coun=.

Currently, the fines for an\
animal control violations are:
*$50 the first offense

Public Works Director Ty Edwards
said the City Charter gives the city
authority to assess property owners
when such improvements are installed.
Edwards said the city must ensure the
safety of its residents and installing a
paved road at 20th Street North would
improve access for mail delivery,
garbage pick up and emergency person-
nel to five more residential lots.
"Safety vehicles would have a very
difficult time maneuvering the path'
that is there now," he said.
Hall's son and development partner
Keith said they were shocked to learn
that they would not Pe able to build on
the property at the time of purchase.
"It was our impression that they were
developable," he said. "We had no idea
there was any objection."
The younger; Hall, also a member of
the Board of Adjustment,. suggested
that the city issue' a' surety bond to
allow them to begin construction of the
houses before the road work begins.
"Heavy trucks can damage a road," he
said. "This will save the' city the trouble
of having the road damages and it will
save us money by not having to pay to
repair the damage."

his clients do not want the road paved..

"It's pretty simple and straightfor-
ward. Your ordinance as it stands right
now says that the City Council is aware
of the desire of property owners for .this
improvement to take place," Eakin said.
"Nothing, could be further from the
truth. The vast majority of the property
owners out there do not want this
improvement and you need to know
that as the public officials. The ordi-
nance does not reflect accurately what
the sentiment of the public is."
Eakin also challenged language in the
resolution that refers to the unpaved
portion of 20th Street North as an
unopened right of way.

Despite some misgivings, councilor
Linda Spence said she agrees that the
road needs to be paved as long as the
Halls are given the okay' to proceed
with building on their lots.
"I like the idea of the surety bond for
the cost of the road," she said. "Let's let
them get the houses built first then we
will finalize the assessment."

The dog which was being

The Leader's Opinion
'We recommend '
vote for Broner
Are.Duval County public schools on. the right track?
The answer to that is priceless and elusive. Certainly
there is much to be done to prepare today's youth fpr a
'future that promises to be challenging.,
The upcoming District 2 Duval County School Board
election offers clear choices between an incumbent, Nancy
Broner, and challenger John Meisburg.
Broner clearly has her vision fixed on the future and
wants to make sure that graduates of public schools are
ready to compete in a global marketplace that places a pre-
mium on skills and intellect.
Broner be] ieves the school system is on track to prep stu-
dents for the challenges ahead.
Meisburg disagrees that; things are proceeding as they
should. / .
It is true that many are concerned about schools today.
Curriculum, student safety, staffing there are many,
issues that can sound alarms.
But Meisburg's simplistic remedy to post InGod We Trust
signs in each classroom and then see a change for, the bet-
ter will not correct all of the complicated problems that our
schools must deal with.
He is a federal administrative judge and seems genuinely
concerned about the state of the schools. He also wants stp-
dent-led prayer, mandatory recitation of the pledge of alle-
giance with the phrase, "one nation under God," and use
of the 10 Commandments in the school.
The ensuing flap over his proposals all of which he
says are legally defensible -will surely knock the schools
Brorner, a longtime Beaches resident who taught at
Fletcher High, understands the pulse of the schools here
Should she and other board members have pushed hard-
er to get a new high school built near Butler Boulevard and
9A's high-growth area? Probably.
But when that school opens and decisions are. made on
which pupils should be reassigned to the new facility,,
'Broner can be expected to understand that Beaches stu-
dents who live east of the Intracoastal Waterway should
attend Fletcher and not be split into factions. .
Yes, 'much work remains to be done to improve our
schools. For the Beaches, however, Broner has done a good
job of keeping schools on track to success and for that she
deserves to be re-elected.
We recommend a vote for Nancy Broner for the District
2 seat on the Du\al County School Board. ,

E ven though he was unceremo-
niously cut from the junior
varsity football team at
Sandalwood High, Steve Berrey has
never lis't his affinity for, high
Since 1990, Berrey, who attended
Sandalwood from 1978-81, has reli'-

"We've only canceled 'one show in
16 years," Berrey, a Jacksonville
"It was because of Hurricane
Francis in 2004. We rescheduled
.another show [in 2001] out of
respect for the; victims of Sept. 11."
Today, the syndicated Beef '0'
Brady's High School Football
Scoreboard is heard on more than
.30 stations in Florida, from ,
Jacksonville to Port, St. Lucie.
Locally, the show airs from 10
p.m.' to midnight on Jacksonville's

. show hit the FIfdial in the early
1990s, it took off like a kickoff
returned in'the open field.
"The first week we did the show,
there wasn't a lot of callers," said
Berrey, whose show originated on
WPDQ AM 690.
"Then an FMi station in Lake City
picked it up and it's snowballed
from there." ..
For the first five,years,, Berrey did
his broadcasts from a Jacksonville
, radio studio, before taking the show
on the road in 1996.
Since 2003, the show has been
broadcast from a different Beef '0'
Brady's restaurant.in the state, and
one within close proximity to a
high school football stadium.
"Now I get to see the games, not
just talk -about theni" added BerTey,

Beef '0' Brady's near Bartram Trail

host the Fletcher High Senators.
"Airing from mid-August to early
December, Berrey said the show's
"core listenership" can be found in
S.,,small, rural towns where high
school football is still king.
When I first started going on the
road, I was overwhelmed by how
many people listened to the show,"
. Berrey recalled.
He came up with the idea of a
high school scoreboard show after
spending five years broadcasting
prep football games in Georgia.
His inaugural Jacksonville show in
1990, sponsored by Lil' Champ
stores, reported only local football
In 1991, backed by a 50,000-watt
FM station, the show took on a
more regional flavor. That same'year
Berrey secured the radio rights to'
broadcast state championship foot-
ball games in Florida.

It's a shame that more peo-
ple don't take advantage of
a natural playground that
lies virtually in our back yard:
the Guana reserve.
A couple weekends ago I
spent a sunny Saturday morn-
ing with a group of lively sen-
ior citizens as they embarked
on a kayaking trip through
Pohte'Vedra Lake, located just
south of NMickler Road and
west of A 1A.

I don't habitually rise at 7
,a.m. to spend time with 70-
year-olds even when my ,'
grandparents try to bribe me
with half a dozen glazed ,
And on this particular
assignment, I thanked God for
our two chipper tour guides,
because I didn't have time to
pick up an industrial size cof-
fee on the way there or a
yummy glazed donut.
But surprisingly I had a
blast and couldn't imagine a
better way to spend my
After a brief tutorial on the
basics of paddling, our guides
launched each of us into the

from a kayak.
But then the tour guides
and I noticed something:
these grandmas and grandpas
could really book it.
They say 40 is the new 30.
Well, apparently 70 is the new
20 because these seniors had
no problems keeping up, and
many of them were kayaking
for the first time.
A: we slowly wound our
way through' the tall, brown /
marsh grass in Ponte Vedra
Lake, I found that one fellow
kayaker kept running hef boat
into mine. I began to think
that magnets were hidden
inside each of our boats,,
attracting one to the other.
Rather than frustrating me,
the situation amused me
throughout the trip. It also
tested my paddling skills as I
made every attempt to stay'
out of her path.

hour trip we stopped for a
SThat's 'when our guides told
us abdut a creature I dubbed
Bad Leroy Brown.
Up until this point on our
trip, I thought the salinity in
Ponte Vedra Lake, which is a
stone's throw from the'ocearn,
was too high for alligators.
-Nope. I was wrong.
In fact, our tour guides '
informed us, there are many.
gators in the lake, and just last
week one of our guide's "acci-
dentally"' paddled right over a
9-foot gator and got stuck.
The biggest of them all -
Bad Leroy Brown, as I like to
call him is 14 feet long with
a head "as wide as your .....
kayak," our guide said.
Now, I bleed orange and
blue just like the rest of my
fellow University of Florida
alumni, and I've grown up in

in lakes filled to, the bri vwith
gators, but this made-me: just
a tad bit paranoid.
On the entire trip'back to
our starting point, I felt like
my cat, Max, who chases
.imaginary bugs up the wall.
My eyes darted frori ripples
in the water to sticks and grass
floating on the surface.
The mullet that were literal-
ly jumping 3 feet out of the
water every four or five miin-
utes didn't help, either.'
And wouldn't you know it,
we saw an alligator just before'
we reached our final destina-
He was about 6 feet long, by
our tour guide's estimation,
and he stayed put, watching
us eerily from about 25 yards
away as we paddled by him.
It was an exciting end to
the tour, which only made me
want to go back and explore
the Guana waters more.
Maybe next time I'll meet
Leroy and live to tell about it.
Opiela leaked to cook on wood stove
by KATHY NICOLETTI
West Beaches resident
Lorena Opiela was born in
Missouri and raised on a fami-
ly farm about 150 miles
northeast of Kansas City.
Her family settled there
prior to the Civil War and
Opiela's mother was the
youngest of 13 children.
By the time Opiela turned
11, she was helping her moth-
er and aunts prepare food for
"I started cooking at age 11
out of necessity," she said.
"I learned to cook biscuits,
cornbread, fry meat from the
smokehouse, potatoes and
garden vegetables. You went
to the cellar to get food or to
"No refrigerators, No elec-
tricity. We had a cellar full of
lard in big stone jars and
canned fruit and vegetables.
,Also, bins of apples, potatoes,
turnips, cabbage, etc."
Almost everything the fami-
ly used was produced on the
farm, Opiela recalled.
,The only food items bought
from the store were sugar,
flour, baking powder, baking
soda, and coffee. Corn and
wheat grown on the farm
were taken into town for
grinding. Butter %wash churned
on the farm with a wooden
The farm had three orchards
of apples, pears, and peaches;
and truck patches along creeks
and river beds for growing
watermelon and cantaloupe.
The family also had gardens
filled with other produce. To
make the farn's abundance of
food last all year, the women
canned or made preserves
with the fruit and vegetables.
Opiela.said there %were lots
of hogs, cows. horses, and
chickens on the farm. The
hogs and cows were butchered
in the winter and the meat
was smoked in the smoke-
house. There were always
plenty of eggs; and, when
there was little meat, they ate
eggs three times a day, she

everyone to meals. The morn-
ing, lunch time, and evening
meals were all hearty to
match the appetite of men
working in the fields, she said.
The men started their day
in the dark and worked for a
couple hours before breakfast.
The women and children
were also up early, starting the
wood or oil stoves, preparing
breakfast and doing other
"The men got up at 4 a.m.
to milk the cows. I learned to
milk a cow ." recalled Opiela.
"After school, I helped with
the chickens, feeding them
and giving them water and
collecting the eggs."
Opiela said bee hives were
kept in one of the orchards
for honey. There were very
few sweets, only the home-
made jellies and preserves and
the honey and molasses for
biscuits. Cakes were only
eaten once or twice a year, she
Opiela, who is in her 80's,
remembers what it was like on
the farm during the Great
Depression and the terrible
dust storms of the period.
"The orchards died and
many of the trees on the farm
died," she said.
"The river and ponds were
dry and when I tried to get.
water from the well, sand
filled the bucket. I cried
because I thought we were all
going to die."
By the 1940s, Opiela was
living in Kansas City, working
in a munitions factory during
World War II.
After the war, she and her
husband lived in Kansas while
he attended law school. Later,
they lived in Germany and

UF study says good
Teachers often say they can
tell as early as kindergarten
which students are likely
bound for college and which
are headed for a 12-year strug-
gle to finish school. A longi-
tudinal studv by University of
Florida researchers has found
evidence to support that
"There are certain simple
skills, such as letter recogni-
tion and the awareness of the
sound structure of our lan-
guage, that serve as very good
predictors of a child's reading
success five years from now,"
said Anne Bishop, an assistant
scholar in special education at
UF's College of Education.
"Without early interven-
tion, a child who lacks these
skills in kindergarten may
have a hard time catching
Bishop and her colleague,
UF Assistant Scholar Martha
League, have conducted a
long-term study in which
they tested children for vari-
ous reading-related abilities in
kindergarten, then followed
up on their performance in
reading through the fourth
grade. They tested the validity
of a number of'measures used
to screen children for reading
The\ determined that
screening measures related to
letter identification, phono-
logical awareness and rapid

They also determined it was
just as advantageous to test
children early in their kinder-
garten year instead of the
middle of the year. The earlier
students can be tested for
learning deficiencies. Bishop
said, the sooner they can
receive the help they need.
"\Ve didn't look beyond the
fourth grade, but it is clear
that a lack of good reading
skills can have a cumulative
effect," Bishop said.
"Past research studies have
revealed that it is far more dif-
ficult to help children catch
up beyond the elementary
years. In fact, the success rate
for helping children in the
early grades is as high as 82
percent. After fifth grade it
drops to 10 to 15 percent."
According to Bishop and
League, critical skills for
Learning the ABCs is the task
most people associate with a
young child's education and
with good reason. Bishop and
League found a strong corre-
lation between the ability to
name the letters of the alpha-
bet in kindergarten and later
performance in elementary
school. For more information,

Mistakes plague Fletcher in Kickoff Classic
Senators in a rebuilding
mode as season dawns
By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
An early turnover on offense,
a bad punt, a personal foul on
fourth down and a blown cov-
erage on defense contributed to
Fletcher High's 1"'-6 loss in
Thursday's kickoff classic at First
Now, the good news: the
game didn't count.

classic rebuilding mode this sea-

After forging an early 6-3
lead, Fletcher gave Fuist Coast
second life after stopping the
Bucs on fourth-and-6 at the
Senators 31-yard line.
A personal foul on Fletcher
advanced the chains to the
Senator 16. Three plays later,

up by a 10-yard punt by
Sophomore tailback Desch-
ion Baskerville fumbled in the
first quarter,- leading to a 34-
vard field goal by First Coast.
The run-and-shoot Bucs
opened the second half with a
63-yard TD pass on first down.
"It's what we call a pop pass,"
said Bucs head coach Marty Lee
"We hit the receiver behind
the linebackers and then let
him be an athlete."
Junior tailback lermaine
Thomas was the athlete in ques-
tion on the play, running a
S seam route over the middle in
front of Fletcher safety Elisha
McTaw, a sophomore.

strong safety didn't lock,".said
Brown, whose defense allowed
126 passing yards, but only two
runs of 10 yards or more.

only bad play on defense,"

Make no mistake, Leftwich is the QB
In our last communique, the
Jaguars fans were warned
not to expect a duplicate of
the Miami offensive victory-
that Carolina was a different
story on defense.
And it came to pass that the
Panthers jumped on our heroes
for a 17-3 advantage in the first
half, eliminating those long
touchdown passes seen against
the Dolphins the week before.
Since the end of that frustrat-
ing 17-10 nose nibbling
Saturday night at the Alltel
park, various opinions have
surfaced, blaming sub quarter-
back David Garrard for just
about everything from. fum- ,
bling.to interceptions to bad
calls:and just short of planning
the 9-11 bombings.
"That oughta settle the dis--
pute of Garrard taking (Byron)
Leftwich's job," one reporter
almost gleefully said, adding, in
so many words that Garrard
and No. 3 QB impersonator
Quinn Gray should stay at the
rear of the bus with the rest of
The fact is, as Leftwich him-
self pointed out, Saturday,
night's game wasn't about
Garrard or Gray or anyone else,
including Brett Favre, if he was
"I know who the quarterback
of this football team [is]"'
Leftwich said, without a smile..
"It wasn't about tonight." Truly
said, your majesty, the job sim-
ply isn't up for grabs. Byron
Leftwich was the quarterback
yesterday, today and as far as
can be seen into the future.
Amen. You won't find that
affumed in the Old or New
Testaments, but in the abridged
version of the Jaguars' Bible,
according to the Book of '
Weaver and Bpok of Harris.
True, Garrard had a tough
night, but it's amazing that ,
when he's decked by the oppo-
sition it's his fault and when
Leftwich takes a beating it's the
offensive line's fault.
The game, though, was more
than just,about the quarter-
backs. Some good signs were
seen despite Jacksonville being
nearly blanked for three quar-
ters, save for a field goal by fill
in kicker Seth Marler. It wasn't
until the fourth period when
rookie tight end Greg Estandia
took a 10-yard pass from Gray
to make it a more respectable
There were other encourag-
ing signs. Reggie Williams has
been brought back from outer
space and snagged three tosses
for 54 yards. With Matt Jones
out with a bad ankle or some-
thing, it was time for "some-.
body to step up," as they say
now in football and a bevy of
Jaguars did. Besides Williams,
the favorite of Leftwich and
' others on the squad, there were
Ernest Wilford and Cortez
Hankton who caught passes
and held on and George
Wrightster, who almost held
one, and Chad Owens and Fred
Stamps, who also got into the
As Fred Taylor said, it was
good to see "that type of pro-
duction, evehi though we didnIt
get points," True, but getting
points, not catching footballs is
really the name of the game,
And speaking of Taylor, the,
best story so far in the presea-
son race is that Fearless Fred is
still all in one piece and look-
ing like his old self again.,
Maybe that solitary,
training he did is something
after all. Now, it may not seem
Taylor-ish to run for 15 yards
on four trips and make 11
yards on receiving, but that's
better than what he would
have on the sidelines.
The secret of the old Gator:
star coming to camp in excel-
lent shape is also credited to
improvement in his eating -
The days when athletes were
kept on a ,strict diet may be
corning back. At least, if a strict
menu can bring back Freddie,
maybe it can do something for
other stars, too. But think
what a healthy Fred Taylor
would mean to the Jaguars for
an entire season. ,
Even though the Alltel open-
er was a big disappointment,
there are things to consider.
But for a fluke fumble when
the ball was knocked out of
Maurice Williams' embrace and
the ensuing quick grab-and-run
by Carolina's Michael Rucker
for the 31-yard TD, this game
might have ended in a tie and
a tie, the way the Jaguars were
juggling things, would have
been a moral %ictory.
Jack Del Rio's team is still
holding try-outs for some
starter jobs. Maybe Saturday
night helped decide.. Aside, that
is, from quarterback. It's still
