Vol. 44, No. 38
Serving the communities of Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Mayport and Ponte Vedra Beach since 1963
Neptune Beach attorney says . ,
Wal-Mart land owner
arguing red herrings
Fallacious, sham, phantasm and red herrings are
just some of the terms that Neptune Beach's city
attorney used this week in a response to a property
owner's request for relief.
Lakeshore Village is a Georgia-based general part-
nership that owns a 15-acre tract at- 600 Atlantic
Boulevard, where a Wal-Mart superstore has been
proposed and rebuffed. The firm has previously filed
a request for relief with the city, arguing that it should
be granted either permission for Wal-Mart to build or
be awarded damages of $40 million, claiming the city
unfairly denied it the right to use its property.
"Lakeshore has attempted, through intimidation
and misrepresentation, to create the picture of the
property owner who can't use its property," City
Attorney Chris White said in an 11-page response.
"This is a phantasm, Instead, we should behold the
property owner who inflicts injury upon itself and
who accusingly points his finger at another."
White said that the property owner created a
"dying retail center" and "systematically emptied" the
center of viable tenants for the sole purpose of having
Wal-Mart on the property. Lakeshore "eviscerated"
'itself by driving out the tenants and the city acted
;within its rights, White said. .. , '
On a separate issue, White said the reason that the'
development was required to secure a concurrency
certificate is simple - because it is the law. He noted
that when the property owner was advised that it
needed to submit an application for the certificate,
'the..city discovered that there may have been previ-
ous developments when, "for reasons which are
unknown at this time," the requirement was over-
The city immediately began requiring all develop-
ments not exempt from concurrency requirements to
complete an application, White said. Lakeshore's
contention that it did not have to apply because the
city failed to follow procedure on others is a "mis-
placed rationale," White said.
"Of course this interpretation by Lakeshore certain-
ly dove-tails with its original intention and desire not
to address concurrency... Lakeshore's interpretation
and suggestions for the above is fallacious and with-
out any basis in law or fact," White said.
He also noted that a traffic impact analysis provid-
ed the city by the owner was "nothing short of a
sham." The two-page analysis contained "self-serving
numbers" and was "at the very least, form without

Several properties along
Mayport Road will be devel-
oped or refinished in an effort
'to provide transitional housing
for, families in need, according
to a presentation at a Beaches
Housing Coalition meeting
Helping Hands Village, a
transitional housing program,
has helped rebuild and main-
tain four houses in the Mayport
area and hopes to purchase
more property to build addi-
tional units, according to James
Stackhouse, a representative
from Helping Hands Village.
"Families with children are
the fastest growing segment of
homelessness in the nation,"
Helping Hands works to pro-
vide temporary housing for
struggling families who do not
have the financial resources to
pay standard living costs. -
Because there is a lack of
affordable housing at the
Beaches, many families have no
where to go and are living on
the street or in cars, according
There are more than 9,000
families who make less than
$15,000 per year at the Beaches,
according to Cindy
Funkhouser, chairwoman of
Helping Hands works with
families, giving them the help
and time required to become
self-sufficient, Stackhouse said.
The coalition discussed other
possible'solutions to provide
more affordable housing at the
One suggestion was to con-
sider mixed-use properties. If
the proposed Wal-Mart is not
built in Neptune Beach, low-
income housing could be built
in its place, Funkhouser sug-
gested, although Neptune

The Cradle Creek Nature
Preserve officially opened for
business Friday in Jacksonville
Dignitaries met under clear
skies to commemorate the
preservation of 43-acres of envi-
ronmentally sensitive marsh-
lands and uplands.
Former Mayor Bob Marsden,
who was still in office when the
property was purchased, said the
project was backed by the City
Council as well as that of the
city of Jacksonville from the
"[Former Mayor] John
Delaney was very supportive,"
he said, even though any time
City Manager George Forbes
approached him about a project
is was usually with his hand out.
"George had a reputation for
hunting money wherever he
could even think he could find
some. It got to a point that
when you called and asked for a
meeting with an official they
said 'oh yeah Bob, that is no
problem at all. But is George
coming with you?'"
Marsden said when Delaney
heard about the plans to pur-
chase 36.5-acres of land near
Plantation Oaks for a passive
park that would curb the devel-
opment of a 40-lot subdivision
"there was no selling job."
".AMl he had to do was look at
the pictures," he said. "Once he
saw this he pledged his 100 per-
cent support. In turn, the
Jacksonville Beach City Council
pledged its support and this is
the result. I'm very proud of it."

The Atlantic Beach City
voted against a proposed 3 per-
cent cost of living adjustment
(COLA) for city retirees at a
recent meeting, citing con-
cerns about the increasing
costs of the city pension funds.
"Now's not the time to take
an action that would further
increase these costs," City
Manager Jim Hanson said at
The city uses a defined bene-
fit system, which means that
money must be allocated to
p'ay for the retirement benefits
However, the cost of this
plan is high and has continued
to increase due to factors such
as increased salaries and lower
investment returns, Hanson
The cost for pension benefits
is expected to rise again next
year, unless the investment
returns are considerably greater
than anticipated, Hanson said'
in a letter to the commission.
With the current plan, it is
possible that some employees
could make more money after
they retire than when t 'ey
were still working for the city,
although this is an unlikely
scenario, according to Nelson
Van Liere, the city's finance
The city has a 69.3 percent
funded ratio. The number has,

years and could be alarming if

For example, the city
recently reduced the multipli-
er for their general employee
retirement plan. The amount
of money an employee is paid
for retirement is determined
by a formula: their income
from their last five years of
work multiplied by the total
number of years worked mul-
tiplied by a percentage.
The percentage multiplied
used to be 2.85, but is now
reduced to 2.5 percent for the

Another potential' area that
could reduce costs is to
increase the minimum
requirement for- vesting,
which is five years. This
means that a retired employee
can draw benefits after work-
ing only five years. If this
number increased, employees
would have to work longer
before they would be eligible
for benefits, Hanson said.
The commission will discuss
more long-term solutions at
its next strategic planning
meeting. In the meantime, it
is an issue that the city will
watch closely, Hanson said.

St. Johns County Tax Collector
Tax Bills Are Coming!
2006 Tax Roll Totals $386,122,236.76
ST AUGUSTINE - Beginning Wednesday, November Ist St. Johns County property owners can expect to find
their tax bills in the mailbox as the 2006 tax season kicks off. This includes bills for real estate, tangible personal
property, railroad, and non ad-valorem assessments.
Total taxes to be collected are $386.122,236.76. This is an increase of $74 million compared to the 2005 tax roll
of $311,.678.008.75. Historically, as the population of St. Johns County has grown, likewise the Ila roll has
increased. "St. Johns County has'experienced significant growth over the past t\\o decades that I have served the
residents as Tax Collector," Hollingsworth noted. "As a direct result, the tax roll has increased to accommodate
the increased need for sen ices provided by the various taxing authorities."
Although all tax bills become due Nov. 1, 2006, they are payable through March 31, 2007 without
incurring a penalty.
"'Residents have the opportunity to pay their tax bills over the next several months, but the greatest savings can be
realized by those residents who opt to pay their bills in November when they can get a 4 percent discount," said
St. Johns County Tax Collector Dennis W. Hollingsworth.
There are various methods of payment available to St. Johns County residents. The most popular method is the
U.S. mail. Simply place your tax bill and payment in the return envelope enclosed with your bill; stamp and
For those who would rather pay their bill from home, the Tax Collector's Office offers an online
payment service to residents with Internet access and a credit card. Access the St. Johns County Tax Collector
website at www.sjctax us and follow the prompts for payment. Please note that a convenience fee is associated
with this service, however, this office does not retain any portion of this fee.
Although it is too late for the 2006 tax year, Florida Statute 197 allows taxpayers to prepay their taxes on an
alternative installment payment plan for each tax notice with taxes estimated to be more than $100.00. If you
wish to apply for the Installment Plan method for the 2007 tax year: application must be made with the Tax
Collector's office prior to May I, 2007. and the first payment must be made no later than June 30, 2007. No other
provisions in the law allows for partial payments. . .
Additionally, 31,714 notices were sent to mortgage companies with Escrow Accounts totaling $118,378,603.79.
If you have an escrow account, you should be receiving an informational "only" notice detailing your tax status
and indicating DO NOT PAY-TO BE PAID BY MORTGAGE COMPANY
For the past 17 years, your tax collector's office has maintained a 99.1 percent or greater collection rate.
Ultimately, this assists all local taxing authorities to finance services for the citizens' needs at very low interest
zates. The bonding agencies tie the collection rate of ad valorem taxes directly to the funding source.

Pat Murphy puts the finishing touches on "Edu-cat-or" at her Atlantic Beach home.
Artist hopes a schoolgets Edu-cat-or'
by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
T he "Edu-cat-or" is the'
next 9-foot jaguar to

resident Pat Murphy and
the children who live in
Murphy's sculpture is one
of 53 sculptures in the Big
Cats for Kids project, a
fundraiser for the Otis
Smith Foundation which
provides education and
live-skill initiatives for
more than 1,000 disadvan-
taged children in
Murphy said the
Foundation itself is what
gave her the idea for an
edu-cat-or big cat.
"I knew the foundation
stressed literacy as one if its
driving reasons for being so
when I was thinking about
ideas education just
dawned on me," said
"It's so cool because you
start with one common
mold and people have so
many different ideas about
what to do."
The Big Cats for Kids
project is the follow-up to
the Sea Cows for Kids proj-
ect in 2004. The display
and auction of 43 man4aeq
sculptures designed by'lqcal
artists net $215,000 for the
Otis Smith Foundation.
Some of the Big Cats are
already on display in dowin-
town Jacksonville until the
auction in May.
"With the jaguar there is
that emotional connection
so to do a jaguar is a great
fit," said Bonnie Upright,
executive director of the
Otis Smith Foundation.
"And the jaguar is the
only cat that enjoys swim-
ming in the water. I would
love to see the Big Cats
along the river and out at
Murphy said she was
"enthralled" with a similar
project, Fish Out of Water,
in Maryland where she
lived for 20 years before
relocating to Atlantic Beach
two years ago.
"Then I loved the mana-
tees when I first moved ,
here and when I saw the
opportunity to do a big cat
I applied and they accepted
it," Murphy said.
Murphy works in the
marketing department for
CSX Transportation, which
"is sponsoring her big cat.
Anyone can sponsor a big
i .ca;t fr $5,000, half of.
I Which goes to the ,
Foundation and the other
half covers the expense of
producing the sculptures
and a $750 honorarium for

display in public places
where the sponsors, mostly
companies, want them dis-
played until the live auc-

tom mold and produced
the fiber glass sculptures for
local artists to design.
Murphy's cat arrived to
her garage studio in the
back of a pick up truck
about two months ago.
She let the neighborhood
children play on the sculp-
ture before work began and
allowed them to add their
own spots on the jaguar
with sponges and paint.
Murphy said her Edu-cat-

with a cap and gown, wire
riri glasses, a quill pen in
one paw and a book under
the other. Murphy used',--..

of the cap and crafted the
mortar board from plywood
coated with fiberglass resin
The "wire rim" glasses are
actually made of PVC and a
mildew-resistant mop head
was used to create the quill
on the pen. Murphy hopes
her Edu-cat-or will end up
living at a school.
"I would love for him to
end up at a school because
education is the reason for
the design," Murphy said.
"lt,s a really neat project
and l,m honored to be a
part of it."

This morning, as I was smil-

crying a bit too, and just after
I rushed out to put some hot
water in the bird bath, I was
all set to start my morning
like I always start my morn-

There they were, all lined
up like they are every morn-
There was an e-mail from
Harvey, whom I do not know,
Joan XYSmith, whom I do not
know, Bufarni Packem, who.
does not even exist, Hilder
G.uiman, who also does not
exist, and about 12 other idi-
otic natme-like words that
mean nothing t. me.
I delete them without look-
ing like we all do, but some-
times, like this cold morning,
I also think about the per-
son on the other end of this e-

That is whom I saw today,
but yesterday, when I arrived
at my inbox, I saw a whole
different set of crazy people.
These guys, and welt, there

leave them no time for a life,
wife or husband.
They come home, grab a
bottle of Scotch, do not both-

because they have nothing
else to do in the three hours
before they have to go to bed
so they can get up and go to

people would get zapped
through some magic, no-spam

ple reason why he likes
to cook: He likes to eat.
Kuti grew up in Hungary
surrounded by at least 10
good cooks. His mother and
his father's nine sisters were
all excellent cooks, and Kuti
said he learned about cooking
by watching them in the
Kuti' left Hungary in 1956,
following the revolt against
the Communist government
'After he arrived in the,
United States, he settled in
East Orange, N.J. He and four
other young Hungarian men,
all learning English and trying
to build a new life, shared a
"I was the only one who
knew how to cook. They paid
and I cooked and they did the
dishes," he recalled.
"They thought it was good."
Kuti eventually settled in
Harrisburg, Pa. He and his
wife, Doris, have been married
for more than 40 years. The
couple came to northeast
Florida 11 years ago after Kuti
retired from the Harsco Corp.,
where he was the director of

remember of the Citizens on
Patrol (COPS) in Jacksonville
Recently, he and other

At home, the Kutis have, in
their own words, "an interna-

The couple likes to invite
their friends for dinner, with
each making some of their'
favorite dishes for their guests,
Doris Kuti's family was orig-
inally from Germany and she
cooks many German special-
ties to serve along with her
husband's Hungarian food.
Kuti returns to Hungary
yearly to stock up on
Hungarian seasonings and
ingredients. Paprika, which is
the Hungarian word for pep-
per, is the seasoning most
often associated with
True Hungarian paprika is
more flavorful but is not avail-
able in the United States, said
Kuti. It is made by grinding
only the meaty part of the
pepper and never the skin.
Marjoram and ground car-
away seeds are two other pop-
Hungarian cooking reflects
the country's unique history,
he said. The people who set-
tled in Hungary centuries ago
were horsemeniwho came
from the east. Hungarian food
is generally spicy and meat is
cooked well done - never rare.
Recipes for Hungarian dish-
es often call for a dominant
seasoning, often paprika, with
others added for underlying
flavor. The timing for adding
the seasonings is important. If
the seasonings are added at
the appropriate time, the fla-
vor from the seasonings will
enhance and stay with the
Chicken Paprikas and
Hungarian Gulash are two
classic Hungarian dishes sea-
soned with paprika, caraway
seeds, and marjoram.
For both dishes, Kuti saut6s
onion and then cooks it grad-
ually in a small amount of
water. After the water evapo-
rates, the fibers of the onion
are broken down which Kuti
said results in a better finished

Senators battle, but fall to Ed White
By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
Terry Gilliam knew Fletcher
High's 2-6 record was a decep-
Ed White High's head foot-
ball coach has been in enough
turf wars over the years with
the Senators to not underesti-
Before becoming White's
head coach three years ago,
Gilliam was Sandalwood
High's head coach from 1997-
"We looked at Fletcher on
film and we knew coming in
that they were as good as any
football team we faced,"
Gilliaim said Thursday night
after his Commanders handed
host Fletcher a 20-13 district
ldss at Jack Taylor Stadium.
"They look no different than
the teams that have won for
them in the past. We knew it
was going to be a battle."
Fletcher gave the visiting
Commanders all they could
handle in the District 2-SA
finale for both teams.
Trailing 20-7 with 4:05
remaining in the fourth quar-
ter, Fletcher mounted a 61-yard
scoring drive to cut the deficit
to 20-13 with 1:14 to play.
Senior quarterback Marty'
McCann capped the 15-play
drive with a 1-yard plunge.
McCann also went over
from the White 1 to cap a five-
play, 76-yard scoring drive ear-
lier in the quarter.
But the Commanders (7-2),
who are headed to the state
playoffs as the runner-up in 2-
5A, recovered the ensuing
onside kick and ran out the
clock to finish 3-1 in district
Fletcher (2-7) fell to 0-4 in 2-
Despite the setback, Senators
head coach Joe Reynolds had
only praise for his team of
"I'm very proud of them.
I'm proud of the defense and
proud of the way the offense
came back in the second half
and scored two touchdowns
on these guys," Reynolds
"Not too many people have
done that to Ed White. There's
nothing like the joy of win-
ning, but I'm proud of the
effort our team put forth
Fletcher's defense had only
one breakdown in the first
half: a 42-yard Eric Baker
But what really did in
Fletcher was its inability to
score from deep inside White
The Senatos' drove to the
Commanders 12-yard line in
the first quarter, but Zach Nail
missed a 28-yard field goal
- Late in the third quarter
with White leading 7-0,
Fletcher ,drove to the White
10, but' 'jals 1i-yarder was
blocked by Steve Selby.
Fletcher's Lamar Scruggs also
dropped a potential TD'pass in
the first quarter. And senior
Ray Scott' dropped a potential
interception three plays before
Baker scored his first of two
touchdowns on the night.
On Baker's 42-yarder, Fletch-
er had the right defense called,
but Baker made enough tack-
lers miss on a third-and-7 side-
"We got lucky on that one,"
said Gilliam about Baker's TD
"All we were hoping to do
was get a first down. I took a
gamble that they would be
pinching inside and we could
get to the outside."
After White blocked Nail's
second three-point try, the
Commanders drove 97 yards
in 11 plays to take a 14-0 lead
in the third quarter. The drive
was keyed by outside runs of
'34 and 18 yards by Baker.
The senior burned the
Senators for 255 yards on 26 ,
carries, especially on toss
sweep runs out of the 1-forma-
Baker had 10 runs of 10
yards or more, including runs
of 18, 19, 21 and 24 yards.
The Commanders rolled up
364 yards on the ground on 26
carries, and threw only three
passes, one of which was pick-
ed off by junior Jason Kelly.
Conversely, Fletcher had its
best passing performance in
memory as McCann amassed a
career-high 206 yards.
McCann, who needs only 14
yards to eclipse the ,1,000-yard
passing mark for the season,
connected on 12 of his 30
Scruggs had his best day as a
receiver with eight receptions
for 139 yards.

Nassau Sound leaves fishermen smiling
Tr e pompano fishermen
| were all smiles last week as
]r They returned from
Nassau Sound. The first good
bite had anglers anchored all
along the mouth of the Sound.
Good catches of sheepshead
came off the jetties when the
weather permitted. Flounder
and trout to four pounds are
coming out of the feeder creeks.
Captains David King and
Mike Morris on the ".Crusty
Crab" probably had the week's
most impressive, pompano
catches. On Wednesday and
Sunday, these veteran anglers
filled their coolers with pom-
pano weighing up to three
pounds and big whiting from
On Tuesday, Mike and David
tried the jetties and pulled up
22 big, fat sheepshead:
The "Early Times" was also
spotted at Nassau Sound last
, week. Captains Butch Garvin,
Dennis Young and Rick and
Jack Ryals were using clarts for
bait and caught 20 pompano
weighing up to four pounds, as
well as a dozen, whiting.
Austin Ryan reports that the
trout fishing has been good from
the Indian Woods Bridge. If the
tide has started out when he gets
home from school, Austin some-
times uses artificial to catch his
limit of speckled trout.
Mark Goodwin has been fish-
ing the same creek, as well as
others, out of his,kayak to catch
redbass and speckled trout. .
Mark usually used live shrimp
Dwight Hibbard fished last
Wednesday with canal guide
JohnDyrssen and they caught
five trout to five pounds, two
mangroves and a dozen lady-
fish. On Friday, John and Tad
Williams caught 10 speckled
trout in the creek near

Bell and John Burroughs used
live mullet from the bank along
Nassau Sound last Wednesday
and Thuxsday and caught 35
speckled trout, a pair of floun-
der, 17 blues and 'a redbass.
Some of the trout were too
small to keep, but it was two
days of exciting fishing.
Gebrge Atelevich put'hJs fin-
ger mullet along the river bank
not far from the ferry slip arid
caught 19 flounder.
'Capt. George Bull and friend
Jimn Combs, from Washington,

Gators win keeps team
on track for SEC
A strange finish to a strange
game Saturday at Alltel left the
Florida Gators in good shape
to challenge for the SEC title.
And even in defeat, the
Georgia Bulldogs found some
hope for improvement.
When the Gators jumped
out to a first-quarter lead on a
12-yard TD run by Andre
Caldwell, some Georgia fans
might have thought they were
in for another day of humiliat-
ing defeat, as they've been in
eight of the last nine games
In the next two quarters,
when UF built a 21--0 lead via
touchdowns by Caldwell
again, this time on a 40-yard
TD catch from QB Chris Leak,
then a fumble recovery for a
nine-yard score by Ray
McDonald, the situation for
the Dogs looked hopeless.
By the Boys from Athens,
hitched up their pants and
went to work for their fresh-
man quarterback, Matthew
Stafford. They opened the
gates for Stafford to score on a
13-yard romp, capping a 52-
yard drive that finally put the
Red and Black on the score-
If the Dogs were running
out of steam it didn't show..
Kregg Lumpkin barreled over
for an eight-yard TD set up
when Georgia recovered a
fumble by Gators freshman
QB Tim Tebow.
That's the same Tebow, by
the way, that will be running
a true version of head coach
,Urban Meyer's spread-option
offense in years to come. It's
what Gator fans have been
clamoring for - let's see if
they like it when they get it.
The game ended with a 21-
14 victory for LIF, but the fight
Georgia put up to the end
encouraged Dogs head coach
"Somehow they found the
[gas] to keep going,"'Richt
said. "We were disappointed
in losing, but with all the boys
we have out with injuries,
they did a fine defensive job."
The Gators face a surprising-
ly strong Vanderbilt team this
week and must win to keep
national title hopes alive.

By ROBERT DeANGELO
Beaches-area fans didn't get
to see much of home-grown
Florida Gators Tim Tebow and
Kyle Jackson last Saturday
Tebow, a freshman quarter-
back who guided Nease High to
a state championship last season
rushed sL\ times for 36 yards.
Jackson, a Fletcher High grad
and backup safety, saw duty on
punt and kickoff coverage.
Jackson, a junior sociology
major, has three solo tackles
and three assisted tackles play-
ing mainly on special teams
through the Gators' first eight
games this season. The 6'1,
200-pound Jackson started 12
games in his freshman and
sophomore seasons but was rel-
egated to back-up when Reggie
Nelson emerged as Florida's
starting safety early last. season.
Tebow, one of the most high-
ly-recruited quarterbacks .in the
country last year, has been used
mainly in short-yardage rush-
ing situations this season,
although he is 10-of-14 for. 152
yards in the passing depart-
ment with two touchdowns
and one interception. The
freshman, has completed 71.4
percent of his passes with the
longest a 35-yarder for a toUch-
down against LSU on October
On the ground, the 6'3",
229-pound Tebow is Florida's
second leading rusher with 282
yards on 50 carries. He has
scored four TDs and is averag-
ing 5.6 yards per rushing
Against the Bulldogs, Tebow
fumbled after being hit on the
Florida 14-yard line in, the
fourth 'quarter, leading to
Georgia's second score of the
game. Afterward, the quarter-
back said he wasn't sure how
he lost control of the ball and
would wait to see game film to
get a better read.

We have to buckle
down and fix it but the
good thing is, even
though we didn't play
as well as we're capa-
ble of playing, we got
-- Tim Tebow
"I don't know [what hap-
pened]," Tebow said. "I'll have
to go look and find out... I'm
not sure if [a Georgia defender]
got a helmet on it or what."
While many in the crowd of
84,572 at Alltel Stadium had
expected to see a lot of Tebow
against the Bulldogs - especial-
ly after head coach Urban
Meyer indicated as- much in the
days leading up to the game -
he was used sparingly.
In his post-game cornments,
Meyer said it was his intention
to expand Tebow's role in the
passing game, but it simply did-
n't happen Saturday. The coach
said he was unhappy Tebow
didn't throw a pass.
"We had a couple of good
passes in there for him," Meyer
said. "We're rethinking that
whole thing. Doggone it, we
want that kid to play. He's a
hell of a player. He came out of
the gate with that 20-yard run
and. theh [we] kind of forgot
about that other stuff."
Tebow's first carry of the
game came on Florida's open-
ing drive. After receiving the
snap in shotgun formation, he
sprinted left for 20 yards before
being upended by Bulldogs cor-
nerback Paul Oliver. But Tebow
gained just 16 yards on five car-
ties the rest of the game.
Meyer said he wasn't happy
with.his team's passing game
and hinted Tebow might enjoy
a larger role this week against
Vanderbilt, particularly in light
of news that starting QB Chris
Leak believes he played much
of last Saturday's game with a
concussion sustained in the
first half. Meyer said Leak'had
"three of four missed calls"
after the hit and lamented a
string of dropped passes, two
costly turnovers and eight
offensive penalties against
"We'll just work it out and
try to execute better," Tebow
said. "We have to buckle down
and fix it but the good thing is,
even though we didn't play as
well as we're capable of plaNing.
we got the win."

Gators and Bulldogs renew rivalry
The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader
rT'Ihough administrations at both schools currently frown
| upon calling it The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail
1. Party, the annual Georgia-Florida college football game
played in Jacksonville is steeped in tradition. Last Saturday, at
Alltel Stadium, the Gators sprinted out to a 21-0 lead then held
on.as the Bulldogs staged a late rally that fell a bit short. Florida
won, 21-14, to keep its national title hopes alive.
Clockwise from top left: Georgia running back Kregg Lumpkin
(6).is blasted by Florida safety Tony Joiner during first quarter
Gators head coach Urban Meyer, right, speaks with freshman
QB Tim Tebow on the sideline. Tebow helped lead Nease High
to a state championship last season.
Lumpkin fumbles the ball on the Bulldogs opening drive of the
second half as Gators defensive tackle Marcus Thomas closes
in on the play.
Tebow, right, picks up yardage as Georgia free safety Keith
Johnson trails the play.
Former Fletcher High star Kyle Jackson takes a break during
pre-game warm-ups near the Florida sideline.
