Sen. King pledges state support for Mayport Ferry
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
The Duval County legislative dele-
gation unanimously voted Monday to
support continuation of the St. Johns
The ferry, which is funded for the
next year, is operated by the city of
Jacksonville and costs the county
approximately $700,000 per year.
Jacksonville City Council member
Elaine Brown asked members of the
delegation for state support of the St.
Johns River Ferry at the meeting, held
in Jacksonville City Hall.
Brown told legislators that all the
Beaches cities are in support of con-
tinuing the ferry and asked for their
support as well.
"We cannot lose the terry," said
Brown, whose husband is mayor of
Neptune Beach. Each of 'the Beach
cities has adopted resolutions of sup-
port for the ferry, which runs between
Mayport fishing village and Hecksher
Brown told legislators that the
Beaches communities and the count)'
want to make continued ferry opera-
tions a priority.
Senator Jim King asked if any of the
Beach cities could "belly up to the bar"
and contribute money to the ferry.
Brown told him that they "absolutely"
None of the Beach cities has dis-
cussed contributing to the ferry and
no local elected officials have commit-
ted to any contribution.
"I would be more than happy to be
the champion [of the cause]," King
said after Brown promised local assis-
The state used to operate the ferry
but the count)' took over responsibili-
ty in the 1990s after state officials
balked at the cost of operating the

ed with the count), to operate the
Brown explained the importance of
the ferry to the delegation, noting that
it has served the community since
1948 and that it is a transportation
mode that serves a lot of businesses.
"We want to make sure that you
know that we will be asking for your
assistance," she told legislators.
John Meserve, former chairman of
the Mayport Waterfront Partnership,
also spoke to legislators regarding sup-
port for the ferry.
If the ferry goes away the economic
development that is happening in the
area also ceases, he told legislators. He
also explained that the fern'ry is vital to

The city of Jacksonville Beach will
not meet a state deadline to adopt a
plan to allow developers who fail road
concurrency standards to get building
permits if they contribute toward
future transportation improvements.
Jacksonville Beach Planning
Commission members Monday voted
4-1 to defer approval of a Proportionate
Fair Share program until a Nov. 27
meeting to allow time to review' the
most recent draft of the bill. Julio
Williams cast the sole opposing vote.
State legislation requires that the
program be included in the city's Land
Development Code by Dec. 1.
The Planning Commission must for-
ward any final recommendation to the
City Council for consideration at two
public hearings before final action is

Because it was carried over for two
weeks, the City Council will not hold
its final hearing until Dec. 18.

DeLoach said he was not comfortable
voting on such a significant amend-
ment without careful consideration.
"With something this important
I'm not comfortable making a deci-
sion on a model we haven't seen," he

a week to absorb the document.

AB adopts Code
The Atlantic Beach cit) commission
approved a code red emergency notifi-
cation system at a meeting Monday.
The system is an emergency tele-
phone messaging system that "will
allow the city to target a specific area of
the community and provide a voice
message to all telephones registered in
that geographical area", according to a
report from Police Chief David
The system can send approximately
60,000 calls per hour. and it can send
messages to telephones throughout the
city or to a specific area within min-
utes,-according to the report. It would
also allow for cellular phones to be
included in the database.
Currently, the city is limited in its
ability to communicate quickly with a
large segment of the population and
relies on other mediums, such as news-
papers or radio, according to
This system would improve commu-
nications if there were a hurricane, gas
leak, utility issue or other emergency,
according to Thompson.
The city's cost of the annual service
is $7,500, according to Thompson.

SAFE SITTERS: Children in the Safe Sitter program at Baptist Medical Center Beaches practice choking
rescue techniques on infant dummies Friday. The hospital offer classes at various times throughout the
year to those teens that are interested in learning more about safe babysitting techniques. See story, A-2.
The Atlantic Beach City Commission decided
that the police should continue to monitor the
speeding issue in Selva Linkside for now, rather
than put in speed humps, as requested by some
The police ran a traffic study and found more
speeding than what is typical In most residential
"fi-eighborhoods, according to Police Chief Da\id
Due to police efforts, the speeding problem has
been significantly reduced, said Thompson, who
is against'installing the speed humps.
"Speed humps are something we typically use
as a last resort," he said, explaining that they do
not solve speeding problems.
However, resident Jack Robins said he did not
think the requests were out of the ordinary.
Residents of the neighborhood have also com-
plained that city vehicles are using the neighbor-
hood as a cut-through.
The streets are owned by tle city and the vehi-
cles have a right to use a city street, according to
Thompson. He also said that if the trucks do not
use Selva Linkside, they will start to use Selva
Lakeside, which will create a new set of problems
for a different group of people.
"If you open the door for this, you better be
prepared to listen to a lot of other people," he told
Woman's Club decides to sell JB clubhouse
With membership declining and
maintenance costs on the clubhouse
soaring, the Jacksonville Beaches
Woman's Club has decided to sell its
home at 1315 2nd Ave. N. in
The 1.5-acre property, which also
includes a 5,152-square-foot club-
house, has been used for many years as
the base of activities for the club,
which once had more than 200 mem-
bers, but now has 83 members, accord-
ing to club records. Jacksonville
Beaches Woman's Club has members
from each of the Beaches communities
and dates back to 1924.
In 1958, undeveloped acreage just
east of Penman Road was deeded to the
club and plans were drawn up for a
clubhouse. A mortgage was secured
and the present concrete block build-
ing was constructed on the site in the
There was much discussion and con-
sideration of alternatives before decid-
ing to put the property on the market,
Eve Steer, a spokesman for the club,
said this week in announcing the
"One of the prime factors which pro-
moted this difficult decision to sell
[the] beloved property was to concen-
trate more fully on the purpose of the
club: to dedicate itself to philanthropic,
educational, civic and cultural efforts
for the benefit of the community,"
Steer said. "To quote one of the mem-
bers, '\Ve are doing this so the club can

able effort and expense to maintain,
club members agreed while voting

No buyer has been identified at this
Steer said the club expects to receive
$1 million to $2 million for the prop-
erty. According to city records, the land
is currently zoned RM-1, residential
multi-family, which allows develop-
ment of 20 units per acre.
She said the club will continue to
meet regularly and will gather in
another venue, such as a restaurant.
"A change in culture that includes a
membership that is aging, a member-
ship that is declining in numbers and
with the conviction of the active mem-
bers that the primary focus has always
been to be contribute to philanthropic
efforts throughout the community,
[the club's] work is being compromised
with the continued burden of owner-
ship," Steer said.
Since the building was constructed,
various improvements have been made
and the facility currently features a.
stage, a boardroom, porches, a full
kitchen :and three bathrooms. It has,

frequently been leased out to private
parties over the years for weddings,
parties and other civic functions.
In 1924 the group was known as
Pablo Beach Civic Center and its efforts
centered on civic, educational, cultural
and philanthropic efforts.
Early projects included promoting a
road running north and south to con-
nect Pablo Beach with Atlantic
Boulevard. Other early interests
included obtaining a Justice of the
Peace for Pablo Beach, public water
fountains, mosquito control, and aid
for travelers. Members also built and
maintained public comfort stations on
city property for visitors who came to
enjoy the beach. Over the years the
club became federated and member-
ship grew to around 200 members.
In 1964, the late Congressman
Charles Bennett dedicated the new
building. Twenty years later, in 1983,
the mortgage was paid and there was a
celebration marked by burning of the
mortgage with dignitaries from the
bank and the past presidents of thela ;

Members of Beaches Watch, a

should not deviate from the
state's model and urged city'
planners to establish a level of

"This is an ordinance we

ToCknell addressed a lengthy
list of concerns submitted by
Beaches Watch president Sandy
Golding including the use of the
word may when determining:
how a developer would be
assessed for improvements.
"This is an insignificant dis-
tinction," Tocknell said.' "If
there is action taken, the word
doesn't change a thing."
Group member' JimtA, Overby
said the language will be misin-
terpreted by developers to skirt
funding any improvements.
"Lawyers will be very quick to
interpret the language because it
says 'may' and not 'will',"

Q: What information should my babysitter
know before I leave?
A: ' It takes time to orient a new babysitter to your home, chil-
dren, and your children's routines. Allow 30-45 minutes for ori-
entation before you go out or at some convenient time prior to
the babysitting job.
* Review how to care for your children, such as feeding, nap-
time, and bedtime routines (with times).
* Discuss how you want your baby picked up, held, fed, and dia-
"Write out instructions for warming foods and bottles.
* Discuss your baby's pacifier, blanket, or comfort toy.
" Be clear about parenting policies: Should sitter pick up baby
anytime the baby cries? What if baby won't fall asleep? How to
handle problem behavior for older
* Show the babysitter where you keep the diapers, clothing, bot-
tles, formula, food, and snacks.
* Discuss any special conditions or medication that the sitter
needs to know. Be sure to write down instructions for medica-
tions'- how much, how often, and bow,to give. If the medica-.
tion is pre-measured; make sure it is out of the reach of your chil-
* Discuss the rules on the use of the telephone,television, com-
puter, snacks, and visitors.
* Be dear that smoking or alcohol is never allowed.
* Leave list of emergency numbers next to your phone. Include
the telephone number for emergency services(fire, ambulance,
police), a phone number for an
immediately available adult, and the Poison Center(i-800-222-
1222). Include your home telephone number and address with
clear directions on how to locate your house. , .;'
* Take the babysitter on a tour of your house to locate all
entrances and exits, fire/burglar alarms, first aid supplies, fuse box,
flashlights, and off-limits areas.
* Discuss what to do in case of fire - escape route, where to go
call for help, and any escape routines you may have practiced
with your children.
* Be sure your sitter knows what to do if there is an emergency.
Always have first aid supplies and a first aid chart available for
easy reference. (A first aid chart may be obtained from the
American Academy of Pediatrics by calling 1-800-433-9016.
* Be sure to tell your sitter where you can be reached and when
you will return home. If a pager is being used, leave instructions
for how the pager works.

waiver for cars
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
A contractor's request for a
waiver to allow 27 parking
spaces to extend 5 feet into the

was denied by the Atlantic
Beach City Commission
The contractor is converting
existing two-story apartments at
333-363 Ahemrn Street into three-
story luxury condominiums,
Via Mare. The city requires that
parking spaces for residential
uses be located- on the same
property, according to Rick
Carper, public works director.
There also must be two parking
spaces per unit.
The approved building plan
requires that the eastern portion
of the front parking spaces be
two feet away from the building

Contractor John Dasie said he
sought-thte waiver to "efthatie6

putting in landscaping between
the building and the parking
spaces. While regulations
require two feet between the
building and the parking spaces,
Davie requested that five feet be

The Leader's Opinion
Future teams hurt
most by penalties
Nease 6High Scliool of Ponte Vedra Beach� has been fined
$20,000, its football program placed on SL\ years of restrictive
probation, and the school's entire athletic program placed on
*five years of administrative probation for "major violations " by
its football program. .
Officials for the Florida High School Athletic Association,
which levied the penalties earlier this month, said the fine is
the largest ever levied.. Some cynics note that the fine may not
hurt Nease as much as it rmght another school, given the huge
success of the booster program due to the affluence of many
attending the school.
To date, no appeal has been filed, challenging the FHSAA's
actions. Indeed, school officials note that they were the ones
to notify the state office of the potential violations.
Since then, two assistant coaches have been let go - despite
initial comments from administrators that no personnel
changes would be made. The head coach of the undefeated
team is still at his post, though. , ,
It is also worth noting that the school has been on adminis-
tration probation for previous violations in its baseball pro-
gram. The repeat offenses in the school's athletic department
would seem to indicate a systemic problem that can - and
must - be routed out by administrators promptly.
An FHSAA commissioner made it clear the association has
"serious questions about the level of control, if any, the
school's administration has over its athletic program."
Many questions need to be answered openly and imamedi-
ately. For example, do school administrators have adequate
control over funds that benefit sports teams? Are all coaches-
well briefed - and tested - on compliance with regulations
that govern school athletic programs? Do those responsible for
student athletes understand there is zero tolerance for non-
Further violations of FHSAA rules put the school at risk for
additional penalties, which could include expulsion.
School athletic programs offer students many benefits. In
addition to fostering team building and spirited competition,
the athletic programs should provide all participants lifelong
lessons in fair play and good sportsmanship'.
Sure, winning is nice but those lessons in sportsmanship are
far more important that the score at the end of the game or the
Nease High School broke the rules and penalties have been
levied. That is as it should be. \e would suggest that some of
the penalties, however, go beyond punishing those responsible
for the current violations.
This year's football team is still eligible to participate in the
2006 FHSAA Class 4A Football Championship. It seems some-
what inequitable that the penalties levied against the school
actually do not impact the 2006 winning team as much as.
they do future teams. ..
As it currently stands, today's seventh-grade students who
are Nease-bound will wind up being penalized more than the
head coach of this year's team, who was the one who allowed
the rules to be flouted - eithefinadv'ertentel-''rihitentikn'al-
Punishing students who are still a half dozen years away
from graduating and have not yet donned a Panther jersey
seems unfair. Yet, under the penalties levied against the school
those students will be banned from televised performances,
playing in fall /spring jamborees and playing out of state
FHSAA bylaws state that "students, who are ineligible to par-
ticipate in competition, may seek a reinstatement of eligibility
if they can prove that the rule which makes them ineligible
places an undue hardship on them because of situations or cir-
cumstances beyond their control."
The Nease team of 2012 might want to ready its appeal now.
According to the FHfS.U . the three specific violationss were:
* 1. The student-athlete's father was offered andi accepted employment

To the editor:
This letter is in response to
a recent letter regarding
homelessness at the beach.
There were several distortions
in that letter that represent
many people's misconcep-
tions about the homeless situ-
ation in America. First and
foremost, according to the US
Mayors Conference Report on
Hunger & Homelessness
dated December 2005( a sur-
vey of 24 cities across the
country) the #1 cause' of
homelessness in 'America is
"the loss of affordable hous-
ing". The fastest growing seg-
ment of the homeless popula-
tion is "families with chil-
dren". The beaches communi-
ty represents a microcosm of
this trend. In the past year we

conversions mainly along the
Mayport Road corridor. As a
result, the agencies at the
beach have been over-
whelmed this year with many
desperate families looking for
housing, some of these fami-
lies have become homeless.
The: "transitional housing"
thatwas mentioned by the
previous letter writer has been
operating for several years, it
is called Helping Hands
Village. It is run by a faith-
based organization that has'
been helping needy beach res-
idents for, over a decade. It
certainly cannot be equated
to a "state run hospital".
, These are single family homes
where homeless families with
children can reside at a
reduced rate for a period of
time 6-18 months. While liv--

Congratulations to Neptune Beach City
Council for making it a priority to protect
their citizens by enacting a strong animal con-
trol ordinance and putting in a substantial
fine for violators.
Sadly, our "Casey" died, probably because of
the two Pit bulls who attacked our family.
We have never received a "sorry" from the
owners, nor were all our expenses paid.
Almost every day in our neighborhood we
still see large dogs unleashed, raiding garbage

After nearly an hour of
debate, the city of Atlantic
Beach granted the owner of the
Comfort Inn on Nfayport Road a
temporary waiver to install a
new sign face on his existing
The approval is contingent on
Sthe owner complying with cur-
rent sign codes before July 2007.
The current codes would limit
that sign to 10-feet tall.
The sign at the Comfort Inn,
located at 2401 Mayport Road,
suffered hurricane damage two
years ago. Current regulations
require that non-conforming
signs be brought into compli-
ance when any change made to
the display area or face area is
more than 25 percent, accord-
ing to Community
Development Director Sonya
- John Shea> the owner of the
hotel, applied for a permit last
summer to replace the sign face
and was informed of the regula-
tions. Because of a pending cor-
:.porate logo change, he delayed
further action,- according to
Choice Hotels, the corporate
management for Comfort Inn,
* requires that the sign be
repaired and that the face be
replaced with the new corporate
logo by the end of this year or
Shea risks being disenfran-
However, in four years, Shea'
is moving to a: different fran-
chise, he said, so the current
sign will have to be changed
Commissioners granted the
temporary waiver so that Shea
could meet his corporate dead-
line. But, they required' that
Shea meet with the city before
July 2007 and present a detailed
plan and timetable to bring his
sign into compliance with cur-
rent city codes.
This option gives Shea the
necessary time to research his
options and the requirements
for the future franchise sign,
according to the city.

He also has future plans to
teach patients how to play the

laughing at the thought that a
patient could come in for sur-

to play 'an instrument.
The program has had signif-
icant effects on patients'
health such as lowering blood
pressure, and heart rate,
For example, one surgical
patient had. high blood pres-

from the music therapy team
played music for the patient

Pat Hoffman of Jacksonville Beach has been diagnosed with'
breast, bone and brain cancer over the years, but doesn't let
that stop her from having a full life. A registered nurse, Hoffman
was also a midwife for 10 years.
breast cancer eight years ago
and has had several relapses
since then in her brain, bones:
and lungs. Three weeks ago she
suffered subdural bleeding,
which produced similar symp-
toms to a stroke.)
"We go through a near death
experience every other year,"1
said Rick Hoffman, Pat's hus-
band of 30 years.
Pat has been in and out of
doctor's offices frequently over
the years, but she doesn't look
at it with negativity or anger,
but rather the contrary.
She's developed such strong
relationships with her doctors,
nurses and other patients that
she refers to the other women
who have also suffered from,
breast cancer and have
received chemotherapy in
group sessions as "the girls."
"We all sit in the chemo
room and he [the doctor] has
these chairs with these big old,
backs and we talk and we gab,"
According to her husband,
she was with her oncologist so
often that he teased her about
having another man in her
Pat was diagnosed with
breast cancer on a Friday and
had a mastectomy, the follow-

with," she said.
According to her daughter,
Chrissy, keeping a normal life
is what's most important to
"She kind of downplays
everything," Chrissy said.
During one of her relapses,
Pat felt a pain in her side, but
didn't want to cancel a ski trip
that was planned. Instead of
going to the doctor before the
trip, she waited' until she.
"I took Motrin and I skied,"
she said matter-of-factly.
After her doctor's visit, she
learned that she had bone can-
cer. Not long after that, she
was also diagnosed with brain
cancer and had gamma knife
radiation, which required
screws to be put in either side
of her head.
Instead of being sad about
hospital visits, you'll usually
find Pat telling jokes,. Davis
Pat hasn't. let her ;cancer
affect her work life either. She-
is a certified nurse practitioner
and was also a midwife for 10
"I love my work," she said,
explaining that she would
have radiation in the morning
and then go to work.
The only problem she .had
was that the radiation made
her tired, so she took naps in
the doctor's sleep rooms on
her lunch breaks.
Although she loved being a
midwife, Pat needed a break
from,,the nights and weekends.

is done correctly and in compliance with all city and build-
ing codes, we make sure the workers show up and we make
sure the bills are properly invoiced," Jay said. "In short, we're
problem solvers, we protect our clients, we put ourselves in
their place and we save them time and money in the long
Southeastern Structural Consultants also educates clients.
"We're here to help you with every' aspect of a new-build or
remodeling job," Jay said. "For example, we'll even help you
find financing for your project and can arrange for you to
meet with a financial expert right here in our office after
hours, if that's what works best for your schedule."
Educating clients also means pointing out potential pitfalls
in complex projects. "If, part way through a project a client
decides to change a wall or the size of a room, we don't just
say 'okay,'" (ay said. "Instead, we explain the ranufications of
even a small change and how minor alterations can drive up
the price. We educate clients on the added costs, prolonged
schedule and additional city approvals required with one
goal in mind - to help you make a good business decision."

Oilers or Texans, Houston just owns the Jaguars
AWat's been said in this
tomer before bears
V repeating: It's not a
disgrace to lose to. a superior
team, and the Houston Texans
have proved this season they
are superior to this year's
Jacksonville Jaguars. .
The Texans have now
whipped the Jaguars twice - in
their own playground and here,
where coach and players have
bragged about "home cooking."
Apparently the home chefs
were off duty Sunday. Jaguars
fans have a right to know why
this team can't beat the Texans,
a club that:was originally put
together from Jacksonville play-'
er and coaching castoffs.
.The same spell cast on
Wayne Weaver's team still-
holds true. Jacksonville could-
n't beat Houston when they
were the Oilers, much less the
Texans. A rose by any other
name still smells the same.
Only Sunday it wasn't Houston
that smelled . . it was the
One stupid remark by a
Jaguar "guaranteeing" a victory
was enough to ignite the ,
Texans, they say. Even a team
that has had trouble beating
anyone, except for the Miami
Dolphins this season.
One could overlook a rookie
making that remark, but not a
seasoned veteran. Especially
one who has been the very
heart and soul of the Jaguars
for several years. ,
It's time for soul-searching.
Players who can't catch a ball
in their very hands should get
out of the game. Surely there
are saloons who could use bar-
tenders, although the drinks'
would probably be dropped
before getting to the customers.
Good truck drivers are always
needed, too. And the jobs pay
well, although not as much as
pro football, where even the
slightest talefits can afford the
most expensive sports cars.
That leads us to the arrest'of
players who booze up and drive
as though they are qualifying
for the Indy 500.
But police are arresting the
wrong Jaguars., The ones who
should be behind bars are those
impersonating NFL players.
Here's a suggestion: If certain
players can't catch passes sev-
enth-grader would snare, why
not throw to their feet for a
change. Soccer players and
monkeys show good control
with their feet.
Some Jaguars are guilty of
taking money under false pre-
tenses, robbing owner Wayne
Weaver and the fans who pay
for tickets. '
To paraphrase the elder Jim
NMora in a memorable melt-
down, "Playoffs? Playoffs? Are'
you kidding me, playoffs?" This
team, with all of its maladies
like injuries and, uh, court
cases, will do well to finish the
