Jax Beach preps for cut in federal funds


by LIZA MITCHELL
ST.A-FF I'RIJTER
Federal dollars used to fund programs
m low to moderate income areas of
Jacksonvile Beach are diminishing, leav-
mng the city responsible for the differ-
ence.
Assistant City Manager Roy Paxson
Monday said the city could lose a portion
of its Community Development Block


Pete's Bar

tradition may

need permit
FROM STAFF
Pete's Bar in Neptune Beach
wall require a permit to continue
its Thanksgiving Day tradition of
mingling people, who gather in
large crowds to enjoy cocktails
both indoors and out, according
to Neptune Beach Police Chief
David Sembach.
Because people purchase drinks
inside and then bring them out-
side, there is a violation of state
law, Sembach said this week.
This year's Thanksgiving event
drew hundreds of locals interest-
ed in meeting old friends and
family members while enjoying a
Bloody Mary.
Sembach, who said he was
unaware of the event until this
year, said he will talk to Pete's
management and set down some
guidelines that will allow the tra-
dition to continue.
He suggested the possibility of
a permit something like the one
that is issued.for Dancin' in the
"Streets.
"\Ve don't want to put an end
to a Neptune Beach tradition,"
Sembach said.
One attendee at the event
described the tradition as "fun
Beaches-sn le."


Grant monies because less money is
available from the federal government.
"The amount of money we get is
diminishing. It's not a good sign,"
Pa.\son said. "At some point the city
might have to take on that added
expense. It's still years away but it's still a
possibility that could happen."
Paxson said the city stands to receive
about S170,000 of the $240,000 in


CDBG monies usually allocated leaving a
shortfall of approximately S60,000 to
$ 70,000.
"They are reducing the program so
Jacksonville does not get as much of an
allocation as it used to," he said. The
county secures the funding and then
shares it with the Beach cities under the
terms of a 1989 agreement.
Jacksonville Beach utilizes its share of


the CDBG monies to fund programs
including the Carver Center, after school
programs, the Utility Billing Assistance
program and the Community Assisted
Policing Eftort iCAPEi in the Pablo Beach
neighborhood.
Jacksonville Beach officials will con-
duct a public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday

NB eyes 1st St. no-wake zone during flooding


b% ALEXANDRA KLIMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Being a bad neighbor could now cost you money,
according to a new ordinance that was proposed in
Neptune Beach which would prevent people from
intentionally creating wakes during flooding.
The ordinance will be considered for a first read-
ing at the next meeting. It was proposed after Police
Chief David Sembach noticed a problem, mainly on
First Street, with vehicles intentiorially speeding
through the water to create wakes for. fun. Some of


the waves break over people's porches, Sembach
said.
"I've seen it in action," said \'ice Mayor Harriet
Pruette, who is sponsoring the ordinance.
The ordinance would establish a fine of $50 for a
first offense, $75 for a second offense and $100 for a
third and any subsequent offense.
Although the problem only occurs a few times per
year, some people have to replace carpets, for exam-
pie. because water comes in under the front door,
according to Sembach.
While the current speed limit on First Street is 20


miles per hour, the proposed ordinance says that it
is unlawful for any vehicle to drive at a speed that
would create a wake.
"Most of this is common sense", Sembach said.
Councilor Fred Lee clarified the intent of the ordi-
nance, asking if it was in place for someone who is
"blatantly not being a good neighbor."
Sembach explained that the intention of the ordi-
nance, which mirrors lacksonville's, is primarily for
people who are purposely causing a problem,
although everyone is accountable.

STAFF I\'RITER
An attorney and citizen
activist in Jacksonville Beach
urged a city planning board to
halt the construction of large
scale developments through
next spring to allow planners
time to update the city's traffic
circulation element.
Wendell Finner Monday,
appealed to members of the
Planning Commission to
approve the Proportionate Fair
Share program with the condi-
tion that' a moratorium be
placed on all projects with a
potential impact on the city's
traffic concurrency through
March, 2007 when the traffic
circulation numbers are in
place.
The Proportionate Fair Share
program is state mandated and
requires developers to fund
transportation fixes to support
their projects.


Members of the Planning
Commission voted unani-
mously to forward a favorable
recommendation to the City
Council to consider during two
public hearings next month.
"I hope the ... City Council
[will] approve this under the
condition that there be a mora-
torium on projects of major
impact on traffic concurrency
until the traffic study is com-
pleted," Finner said.
"If that happens than this
ordinance can go into place,
the studies can be done and
next spring these new projects
can start coming on line and
we will have everything that
we need to make Proportionate
Fair Share a reality in this city."
Finner said the city's outdat-
ed numbers and lack of level of
service standards will leave the

Alliance

organizes

to fight

Wal-Mart
FRO STAFF
A group of citizens from both
Neptune and Atlantic Beach
have formed the Atlantic
Alliance, a grass roots organiza-
tion to protest big-box stores in
the area and specifically a WVal-
Mart SuperCenter.
The group is composed of
local residents and business
owners who say that a Wal-Mart
SuperCenter would be detrimen-
tal to the community.
"A Wal-Mart SuperCenter
would destroy the quality of life
we've worked so hard to build in
Neptune Beach and Atlantic
Beach," Kristine Matson, co-
founder of the Atlantic Alliance,
said in a press release. '.
The group cites several rea-
sons for opposing a Wal-Matt,
among them, traffic problems,.
increased crime, threats to local.
businesses and threats to quality
of life.
The group does support a
Publix 'or a multiple tenant
development in wlich business-
es and residents alike could
share residential and office
space.

Well safety eyed
FROM STAFF
The Atlantic Beach City
Commission recommended that
staff prepare an ordinance to
protect wellheads at a meeting
Monday.
The proposal was brought to
the commission's attention
because it is a requirement in
the city's comprehensive growth
management plan, according to
Utility Director Donna
Kaluzniak.
The proposal calls for a 500Q
foot buffer around each of the
city's public 'wells, whiih is
required by state law, and also
protects against contamination.
The proposal would only
affect deep wells, which are con-
sidered between 300 and 1,200
feet deep. There are only two
deep wells in the city, so the
ordinance would primarily be in
place for anyone who builds a
deep well in the future.

Hearing is
Thursday on
Wal-Mart plans
FROM STAFF
An administrative hearing
regarding plans denied for a
proposed Wal-Mart in
Neptune Beach will be held
Thursday.
Attorneys had requested the
hearing after the city rejected
proposed plans for a "super-
center" store at the 630
Atlantic Boulevard, the site of
a former strip center.
A Special Magistrate's medi-
ation will be held at the
Florida Coastal School of Law,
555 Beach Boulevard, at 1
p.m. At that hearing, the only
parties heard will be those
who asked in advance.
A separate public hearing
will be held at Neptune Beach
City Hall, 116 First Street, at 7
p.m. That hearing is open to
anyone who wants to fill out a
card and speak.
Opponents have organized
a pre-hearing rally at 6:30
p.m. Thursday, outside city
hall. The city's police depart-
ment, however, has said that
the rally in a nearby parking
lot will require permission of
the property owner.
Police Chief David Sembach
said police are not trying to
block the rally, but cautioned
that participants may not
impede traffic or the road.

said City Councilor Eric
Pardee
The cat would be designed
to resemble a mermaid, with a
starfish earrings and green
scales - but it would still keep
its cat tail - and would most
likely be placed in the heart

Holiday events begin Friday


by JORDAN NEWMAN
CONTRIBUTOR
During the holidays there
are many events in the Beaches
area that are inexpensive, or
even free.
"Christmas can get pretty
hectic sometimes," said Kristen
Cooper, 21, a resident of
Atlantic Beach. "There is
always so much going on dur-
ing the holidays, but the
events that the Beaches really
provide a step away from the
regular hustle and bustle of
holiday stress."
On Friday night the annual
"Christmas in the Park" will be
held at at Jarboe'Park begin-
ning at 6:30 p.m. The holiday
season begins with the arrival
of Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their
elf.
Entertainment from area
schools will fill the air with
sounds of the holidays. Winn
Dixie will provide refresh-
ments and cookies. All of the
events are free.
The Beaches provide holiday
events for residents of all ages.

the City of Jacksonville.
Beaches cities were riot eligible to receive
CDBG monies. until 1989 when an interlocal
agreement expanded to include the beaches
communities in Duval. County.
Prior to the 1989 interlocal agreement which
entitles the three Beaches cities to portions of
the' CDBG monies awarded to the city of
Jacksonville, funding opportunities were only
available through the Small Cities Program.
;Paxson said early CDBG monies helped the
city develop many community projects includ-
ing the construction of the Beaches Senior
Center and Wingate Park. .
The grant monies were also used to fund
infrastructure .projects. such as sidewalks,
drainage; 'paving, sewer lines and even some of
the planning that led to the redevelopment
efforts in the downtown area.
"There area lot of improvements that happen
in Jacksoneille Beach as a result of the funding
we receive," Paxson said., -

the city has no accurate method for
calculating such an impact.
"If you do not know what your

rest of the formula is nonsense."
. Finner said. "This city is not going to
be in a position to know what the
adopted LOS is with respect to any,
new project that is affecting concur-
rency until the spring of 2007."
Attorney Brenna Durden acting as
the city's counsel cautioned the com-
mission and said that a moratorium
would be -"highly inappropriate"
because it challenges private property
rights. . -
"A moratorium is probably one of

FROM STAFF T
The -protection of environ- its
mentally sensitive lands is apri- Cit
Sority according to Neptune infc
Beach City Councilor John me
Weldon, who introduced a new 20(
ordinance at a meeting Monday; .
Weldon said he feels it is nec- Th
essary to define conservation 20i
areas more clearly before devel- vill
opment proceeds. .
Although the ordinance is still Fo
in draft form and was up for dis- Ma
cussion, it proposes that plans -
for construction on or near eni-
ronmental areas should first be
presented to the city council.
Such a re-iew would ensure that
the community has no objec-
tions before building proceeds,
Weldon said.
Weldon said he was con-
cerned that Neptune Beach
could have a large marina, for
example, if building restrictions
are not set for docks and other
structures near waterways. He
said he does not want to make
the building rules overly strict,
but simply define the city's, right
to have a role in the process. -
However, the council was not
in agreement over-some areas of
the ordinance.
"People buy waterfront prop-
erty and are entitled to use it
accordingly," said' Councilor
Eric Pardee, who questioned
whether or not the city had any
jurisdiction..-
,The council agreed that the
city ,attorney, who was ;absent,
needs to determine if the pro-
posal would even be legal
because of jurisdictional -prob-
lems.
"I don't have any problem
giving this time to breathe," said
Weldon.


because it is a juxtaposition to proper-
ty rignts which in America are tanta-
mount," she said.
"There has to be data and analysis.
that shows there is a tAuation .that.atre
broad enough to call' for and usury a
moratorium. A moratorium is
extremely complex in that the city has
to have very thorough data and analy-
sis to support a moratorium of any
"sort." ' . . '
S , Planning and Development Director
Steve Lindorff said Finner's comments
about the lack of adopted levels of
service were "patently incorrect."
'\Ve do have adopted levels of serv-
ice. They are in the Comp Plan and
they, have been the same since
October, 1990," he said. "Those levels
of service are repeated in the Land
Development Code and have: .been


wufsn&


. unchanged since August of 1990."
The Transportation Element of the
city's 2010 Comprehensive Plan
defines its adequate public facilities
standards as part of its concurrence
-management system. - ....
, A revised traffic circulation element
was adopted in 1995 to include annu-
al traffic counts of all ot the city's sig-
nificant roadways.
. Lindorff said the city is "well into.
the data collection phase" and expects,
a preliminary draft of the new haffic.
circulation element will be available'
for public input by March, 200.".
Implementing the Fair Share pro-
gram will not compromise concurren-
cy, he said, because the billprovides .a
process for city planners to follow to
address any transportation concerns
generated by projects on a case by case

.' Finner argued that the city's existing
codes do not require the planning
staff to incorporate the results of a
project's individual traffic impact
stud-,nto .:a baseline -to be. used ,to
assess a future development.
"Whenever y-ou are talking about
traffic in a growing city is like Uting to
hit a moving target," he said. "You
can't keep traffic moving in a city

The Leader's Opinion


Downtown JB


cops worth cost

The decision by the Community Redevelopment
Agency to fund two full time police officers for down-
town Jacksonville Beach is good news. . /
The Agency has agreed to provide $176,000 from tax
increment funds each year for community policing in
the downtown redevelopment district. There is a hitch.
The tax increment district designation for downtown
that allows the redevelopment agency to capture tax dol-
lars that would otherwise go into county coffers expires
in' 2013. As Development Director Steve Lindorff so aptly
put it, Jacksonville Beach will have seven or eight years
to find more traditional funding to finance the needed
policing downtown.
In the meantime, that problem is pushed out to 2014.
For now, downtown Jacksonville Beach will get a real
boost in policing. Hopefully, the area will be a safer and
more inviting place to go and enjoy the many activities
available and the perception of risk associated with the
area will be dispelled.

We have plenty Of enemies Beware the kitchen zone


To the editor:
I almost fell out of my chair
when I read the letter in the
Nov. 24 edition headed "mili-
tarism infectious" -- which
the writer identified as a men-
tal illness. He went on to
claim that voting against the
return of the Navy to Cecil
Field was the first step in
combating this mental illness.
The writer questioned our
military budget since "we
have no serious enemies" in
our hemisphere and are pro-
tected by thousands of miles
of open ocean. Using his


arguments, it follows that the
9/11 attacks were carried out
by "friends" that were born in
the United States. I wonder if
our letter writer is one of
those that reject the proof'
that the attacks were carried
out by young Muslim terror-
ists? Maybe he subscribes to
the crazy .notion that
President Bush did it?
And some wonder why nor-
mal folks refer to the "looney
left"?

space, according to Hanson.
The sallyport, where patrol cars
drive to bring in prisoners, is
currently being used for evi-
dence storage, for example,
because storage space is over-
crowded.
"The building is far smaller
than most other police depart-
ments for a city of this size,"
Hanson said.
Apart from a lack of size and
storage, there are other pressing
issues. The current building
might not be able to withstand-
a hurricane. There is also a risk
of flooding in equipment areas,
according to Hanson.
Several options were dis-
cussed including expanding the
current facility or moving to a
new location.
The city commission, manag-


.er, police chief and architects
toured the Jacksonville Beach
Police Department facility to
explore some of the more cur-
rent options available, although
Hanson said that city officials
would also like to look at other
facilities in other cities.
Reeves estimated the. cost of
either expanding or building a
new facility would be between
roughly $5 or $6 million.
According to Hanson, the city
may be able to obtain grants to
help pay for the cost, but the
majority of the costs would be
paid for by the city.
The commission did not
make any decisions and will dis-
cuss the options in another
workshop meeting when more
information is available.

of First the Atlantic Beach tree protec- '
'he proj- 'tion ordinance discussed at a
he Evans city commission meeting
Monday were deferred.
Staff reviewed the ordi-

s one of ments, such as requiring a
country tree permit for.the removal of
:es into public trees, according to: a
.r Smile report from Public Works
A one- Director Rick Carper.
1550. However,, the' issue that
sparked the most debate was
whether to increase tile fine
for "clear cutting" trees, that
is, removing trees during 'a
construction project without,
getting a permit first, specifi-
cally in casps where it is not,
possible to decipher what was
there in the beginning. The
fine is currently $1 per square
foot of land cleared.
Staff recommended that the'
fine be increased to $5 per
square foot, but the commis-
sion .w s not ,u..ei,,thojtJts
amount would be adequate
. enough to cause a deterrent
'from the problem.
& "What cities are compara-
ble?," asked Commissioner
Sylvia Simmons, who thought
that the fine should compare
-with similar cities. .
The commission decided to
defer the issue until they can
get more information on
_ ',:t other cities and their fines as
F, Pr,,o well as input from the citv
owned attorney as to the legal limits.

, Fletcher High's leader-
.Ljship program delivered
1,000 lightly used books to
Joseph Finegan Elementary
last week and hung around
to read to students.
"I am very glad to be
here today helping the
younger children," Fletcher
senior Michael Clapp said.
Clapp, who read two Dr.
Seuss books to Finegan stu-
dents, was joined by Rusty'
Stiles, Meredith Corey-
Disch, Stephanie Simms,
Jenna Harvey, Brian
Wallace, Colby Caltrider
and Sam Perry.
Simms went to Monica
Isom's kindergarten class,
where she sat in the
teacher's rocking chair and
read "Corduroy," showing
pictures and asking ques-
tions as she went along.
Several of her listeners
knew the story and were
anxious to tell what hap-
pened when Simms called
on them.
The books the leadership
program delivered were col-
lected in a school-wide
effort at Fletcher.
Joy Chalker's first-period
class at Fletcher contributed
a school-high 178 books.

Postscript for Mann


reveals his character


n one of, his last letters
home during World War
II, Charles Byron Mann of
Mayport joked about the
new-fangled Navy ship he
would soon serve on in the
Pacific: A strange-looking
amphibious vessel known as
a landing ship medium.
"I'll bet when you were in
the Navy, if you saw some-
thing like the thing I'm on,
you would have reported to
sick bay for a mental check-,
up," Mann told his father,
Richard Mann, in a letter
postmarked June 24, 1944.
"This doesn't remind me of,
a PT boat, but maybe I'm
lucky in that respect. PTs see
a little too much action for a
peace-loving person like
myself."
Ironically, Mann, a 1942
Fletcher High graduate,
would perish on the first and
only ship he served on dur-
ing the war: LSM-20.
A remembrance article on
Mann was published in The
Beaches Leader before
Veterans Day, minus a photo
of him and several of his let-
ters, Which did not arrive
before the story went to
print.
After reading the letters, it
seemed only fitting to add a
postscript to Mann's remark-
able story.
The letters help fill in
some blanks about Mann's
training and mindset leading
up to the Battle of Leyte Gulf
in the Philippines.
Mann, 19, died a few
weeks after that epic naval
encounter in one of the first
Japanese kamikaze attacks of
the war.
"It's goin oi.e a wonder-
'ullTeliYig siheh.Hitler and
Tojo cash in their chips," a
letter Mann wrote to his
father says.
. "Thanks for having so
much confidence in me. I
don't ever expect to make
out as well as Johnny did. If I
don't, it won't be because I
didn't try."
Johnny Mann, Byron's
older brother, served in John
F. Kennedy's PT boat
squadron and reached the
rank of chief petty officer
several months before Byron
did.
Johnny Mann was the
brawnier of the two brothers,.
having won a Golden Gloves
boxing title as a teenager.
Byron Mann also boxed
(his nickname was' .
"punchy"), but he was more,
introspective and expressive,
as evidenced by his letters.
Byron Mann scored high
on mechanical aptitude tests
in the Navy, and was selected,
to oversee the engine room
on LSM-20.
The assignment meant
Mann would be responsible
for "the engineering of that

tub," his May 6, 1944, letter-
to his mother says.
,"Uncle Sam is rushing this
LSM training quite a bit. In :-
two more weeks I'm going to-
be as salty as the Navy food
is.
According to an April 11,
1944 dispatch, Mann was .
appointed "acting chief" of ;i
the engine room before his
ship was even built in
Houston.
LSMN's, also known as
"sandscrapers," could be
built and launched in 53'
days. The lightly armed ships
carried tanks,, troops and
cargo...,,
Mann's vessel was commisr-
sioned on June 17, 1944, for .
one express purpose:. to par- 5
ticipate in the large-scale
invasion of the Philippines
four monthslater.
LSM-20 was among a van--..
guard of amphibious ships
involved in the Battle of -
SLeyte Gulf, considered the
biggest and most multifac-
eted in naval history.
Mann, who was too young
to serve on PT boats like his
brother, was briefly consid-
ered for the submarine serv-
ice, according to one of his
earliest letters home.
"If I make it, tell Mom that
the modern subs have inner
spring mattresses and air
conditioning," a Jan. 19, ;
1943, letter says,.
� Before shipping out for the
Pacific, Mann, a motor
machinist's mate "spot-
rated" a chief petty officer :'.
when he came aboard LSM-.
20, told his folks in a letter:
"I've just about convinced
myself.,that it doesn't matter'
much where I go during the
war; The future is .what-
counts most."
Mann planned to go into
business with his father after
the. war, but those dreams
died when a bomb-laden
kamikaze plane struck LSM-
20 on' Dec. 5,.1944, in the
Surigao Strait.
Mann was one of eight
sailors 'killed in the attack. - .

Former trial attorney enjoyed catering


by KATHY NICOLETTI
. COLUMNIST
T o balance 'her 60- to 70-
hour work weeks as a
trial attorney in
Atlanta, Kimberly Young
found cooking to be relax-
ing, and an enjoyable.'outlet
for her creativity.
Young, who moved to
Ponte Vedra Beach about a
year ago with her husband,
Lane, and their two daugh-
ters, first became interested
in cooking while reading
cooking magazines in law
school.
By the time she was prac-
ticing law, Young had
become confident in her
ability to cook and entertain.
Taking this a step farther,
she began catering on the
side.
Her first catering job was
providing what she termed.
"high-end5' luncheons for a
production company and for


New York models in Atlanta
for photo shoots.
Her menu for the lunch-
eon included cold soups,
pressed sandwiches, and sal-
ads; food that Young thought
the clients would enjoy and
that would work well with
their schedule.
From there, Young started
catering small dinner parties
and brunches for friends,
while at the same time con-
tinuing her law practice.
Often, after working all day,
she would cook late to pre-
pare for an upcoming event
that she was catering..
One of. her suggestions, for
a relatively small dinner


party is to plan the menu
around three or four simple
dishes.
She suggests choosing a
seafood lasagna, paella, or,
other dish served in one pan.
for the main course, then a
salad and one or two other
complementary. side dishes.
Doing this makes prepara-
tion for the party manage-
able. Most people feel less
pressured when all they need
to cook are a few really deli-
cious foods instead of a large
display of many different
things, she said.
It's also worth it to hire a
little help to serve at the
party. The host and hostess
can focus on the guests and
any last minute details in the
kitchen if there are a couple
of people to help with serv-
ing, Young said.
,At informal parties, ask a
friend to pass the hors'
d'oeurves or cheese course.
Most often friends will be


glad ,o help and it's a great
way for them to talk with
everyone, adds Young.
For several years while
they lived in Atlanta, Young
invited friends to a holiday
party a few days before'
Christmas. Her goal was .to
bring people together for an
intimate dinner that was
relaxing and comfortable..
The parties proved to be a
success, in part because the
menu (built around a one-
pan main course) was "some-
thing different from the
usual cocktail buffet," she
said.
Young's dinner began with
a few hors d'oeurves that '
could be easily passed to the
guests or served buffet style.'
Young chose to serve a
cheese hors d'oeurves, fresh
oysters, and Classic Wild
Mushroom Soup.

Recipes: Boeuf Bourguignon as the main course


'Your ART Together!


Cont. from A-9
Seafood is always popular
for the holiday parties and a
good choice is oysters served
freshly shucked with a cham-
pagne mignonette sauce.
Oysters are a nice change of
pace from the shrimp that is
often served at holiday cock-
tail parties, said Young.
Gougeres, or small cheese
puffs, are one of Young's
favorite choices for hours
d'oeurves. These are best
warm and crisp from the
oven so they definitely
require last minute effort,.:
The dough can be mixed
together a couple of days
ahead of time and the puffs
baked, shortly before guests,
arrive.
Classic Wild Mushroom
Soup is rich and creamy. A
small shot glass (or espresso,
or small tea cup) full is just
the right amount to enjoy as
a first course.
For the main course, Young
chose a classic Boeuf
SBourguignon served with
Potatoes Anna and a green
salad. In keeping with her
informal holiday theme,
Young served the stew from a
large red enamel pot placed
on the dining room table.
After the guests filled their
plates, they moved to living
room for comfortable seating
and conversation while they
enjoyed the meal.
Following the main course,
everyone was offered a vari-
ety of cheeses served on a
tray garnished with the fruits
and nuts of the season.
To go-with coffee and a
selection of port wine and
cordials, Young served the
traditional French Christmas
dessert, Buche de Noel. The
dessert doesn't need to be
homemade, she said.
Purchase small pastries and
individual tarts, the Buche
de Noel, or another festive
dessert from a local business.
The following menu and
recipes are for Young's Annual
Intimate Holiday Dinner Menu.

SHUCKED OYSTERS
MIGNONETTE
2 dozen fresh oysters
2 minced shallots
1 cup champagne vinegar
4 tbs. dry champagne or

Stir together all ingredients
except oysters, cover and
refrigerate.
Shuck oysters just before
serving and arrange on bed
of ice or kosher salt. Drizzle
with mignonette and serve.
Tip: While shucking oys-
ters is not an easy task, it is a
fun and relaxing presenta-
tion to have them passed to
your guests while the server
waits for them to consume
the oyster.
Or you might try just
arranging them on a tray and

Swank returns home for ACC title game


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
While it's somewhat unusu-
al for a punter or placekicker
to play an instrumental role in
the season-long success of a
football team, that's the case
for the Wake Forest Demon
Deacons and Fletcher High
grad Sam Swank.
Following Saturday's 38-24
victory over Maryland, Wake
Forest finds itself in this
week's ACC Championship
Game and Swank returns to
the Jacksonville area as a
potentially key player in the
Demon Dea-
cons battle
against
Georgia Tech.
Swank, a
sophomore,
was flawless
this season in
converting 32
extra points _3
and also con-
nected on 18
of 24 field
goals. He
scored 86
points and
had five field
goals of at
least 50
yards.
In strong contention for the
Lou Groza award as college
football's best kicker, the 6'2",
206-pound Swank also han-
dled punting duties for Wake
Forest, averaging 41.3 yards
per attempt and booming one
for 86 yards.
Four times this season
Swank was named Specialist of
the Week by the Atlantic
Coast Conference.
Last year, Swank was a semi-
finalist for the Groza award
and was named first team All-
American by The Sporting
News, CollegeFootball-
News.com and Scout.com. He
also received a vote as ACC
Rookie of the Year.
With 86 points heading into
Saturday's game, Swank has a
chance to to better the Demon
Deacons record of 94 points
by a kicker set bv Larry Russell
in 1981.
Against Maryland, Swank
booted a 36-yard field goal in
the third quarter. That makes
him 9-for-ll this year from
inside the 40-yard line.
With such perennial power-


houses as Florida State and
Clemson, and even second-tier
forces like Boston College and
Maryland in the ACC's
Atlantic Division, there was
little talk of the Demon
Deacons' chances at the begin-
ning of the season.
"I'll bet all those people
who wrote those columns
about Wake Forest went back
and bought some Wite-Out,"
safety Josh Gattis told
reporters in Maryland.
"They're going to have to
scratch it out. They picked us
to be at the bottom of the
conference. But hard work,
determina-
tion and
having faith
in our team-
mates has
led us to
victory."
Georgia
Tech enters
B the ACC





loss to
Georgia in
that state's
biggest rival-
try game.
It's become a familiar pat-
tern for the No. 23 ranked
Fellow Jackets, who've lost the
last five to the Bulldogs.
But this season, a chance to
erase that loss comes quickly
as the team prepares for
Saturday's showdown at Alntel
Stadium.
"I think it's good for the
team and helps us refocus,"
said Jackets guard Andrew
Gardner. "In some 'ears past
we lost to Georgia and then
had a long layoff and then the
bowl game.
"As much as we don't want
to lose to Georgia and as
much as that hurts, you can't
let that get you down. To help
us refocus and achieve one of
the goals ofhe team will help
us feel.good going into the
bowl sea on."
Unfortunately for the Yellow
Jackets, quarterback Reggie
Ball had one of the worst per-
formances of his career against
Georgia. Ball threw a pair of
interceptions and lost a fum-
ble that Tony Taylor returned
29 yards for a touchdown.


Priolo .ounev of Wiake Forest Unversitiv
Demon Deacons kicker Sam Swank, a graduate of Fletcher High School, will return to the area this weekend as Wake Forest bat-
tles Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship Game played in Jacksonville's Allltel Stadium. Swank is a key cog in the Demon
Deacons' offense and was named ACC SpeFialist of the Week four times this season.


Ball's 42 passing yards were
the second fewest of his
career.
Jackets head coach Chan
Galley has said he is not con-
templating benching Ball
against Wake Forest.
"That won't happen,' Gailey
says in a report on the ACC
Web site. "He's taken us this
far. He's the guy who's gotten
us to nine wins, gotten us to
the championship game.
"He's a senior. You're going
to give him that opportunity."
Georgia Tech won the ACC's
Coastal Division with a 7-1
(conference) mark.
Tech and Wake Forest have
not played since 2004, when
Tech won 30-17 in Atlanta.
But on paper the teams pres-
ent some good matchups.
One other time in its histo-
ry, in 1970, Wake Forest won
the ACC title but that didn't


even result in a bowl bid.
A victory over the Yellow
Jackets on Saturday puts this
year's team in the Orange
Bowl, the BCS destination for
ACC title winners.
But despite signature wins
over Florida State and Boston
College, Wake's road to
Jacksonville appeared very
much in doubt following a 27-
6 loss to Virginia Tech Nov.
18. The Deacons rushed for
only 32 yards in that game
and seemed to stymie the
momentum gained from upset
victories over the Eagles ahd
Seminoles the previous tWvo
weeks.
But with everything on the
line in a trip to visit the
Terrapins, Wake Forest
regained its stride and rolled
to perhaps the biggest win in
school football history. The
university has fielded a team


for 105 seasons and played
997 games with little glory.
While in the past Wake had
struggled beating Maryland
anywhere, last Saturday's win
meant the Deacons became
the first ACC team in history
to go 6-0 on the road. It was
Wake's first victory over the
Terrapins in eight tries since
1988.
The Deacs were paced by
Kenneth Moore, who ran for
165 yards and a touchdown,
Kevin Harris, who scored
twice, and freshman quarter-
back.Riley Skinner who was
lO-for-13 for 125 yards and a
touchdown.
While Maryland scored first,
Wake Forest went up 28-14
with an 80-yard TD drive to
start the second half. Moore
gained yardage on the ground
with runs of 15 and 23 yards
while Skinner was 3-for-3 for


35 yards before Harris scored
from the 3.
The Terrapins answered with
a 26-yard field goal but the
Deacons responded when
Swank connected on 36-yard
field goal to restore his team's
14-point cushion.
"We've had some rough
years," said Skinner, a Bolles
graduate. "What's different
about our team this year is
we've been finishing games."
ACC officials said some tick-
ets are still available for this
week's championship game
through the organization's
Web site at theacc.com.
Club seats are sold out, but
lower level ($80) and upper
level 1$60) seats were still
available as of Tuesday.
Parking passes may also be
purchased at the Web site,
which includes a list of activi-
ties for the weekend.

Kristen Hackworth led the
Senators with 11 points, fol-
lowed by Alvssa Patterson

to Nease Tuesday night.

BOYS SOCCER
Nease 4, St. Augustine 1
The Panthers boys soccer
team dominated St, Augustine
at home Monday night amid
thick fog and an eerie atmos-
phere.
Nease rolled to a 4-1 victory
on goals by Myles Wright, Joe
McKinley, Austin Nelson and
Palmer Davis. McKinley's goal
came off a free kick in the first
half, while Davis's goal was on a
corner kick taken by teammate
Max Lang.
Caleb Sturgis scored the
Yellow Jackets' lone goal.
Nease outshot St. Augustine
16-5 and led 2-0 at the half.
With the victory, the
Panthers improved to 4-0-1 on
the season and 3-0 within their
division.

BOYS BASKETBALL
Nease 67, Bolles 51
The Panthers never trailed in
their home-opener Monday
night against the Bulldogs.
Nick Sesnick scored a game-
high 22 points to lead Nease.
Ryan Hentkowski added 18
points in the winning effort,
Kasey Faver chipped in with
seven as did Jon Gin. Kyle
Leonard had six points.


SProc. : ur.rn,m a
Fletcher High golfer Major Forbess, front row center, with family, friends and coach Ed Lange as
he signs a scholarship offer from the University of North Florida. Forbess was the Senators No. 1
golfer this season and helped lead the team to the state tournament.


With the win, the Panthers
improved to 1-1 on the young
season.

GIRLS SOCCER
Nease 2, St. Johns Country
Day I
The Panthers girls soccer
team staved undefeated with
Monday's victory at St. Johns
Country Day School.
Ashley Nicol and Stacey
Hanburry scored second-half
goals ior Nease, which
improved to 9-0-1 with the win.
It was the first loss of the sea-


son for SIC DS.

FOOTBALL
Nease 24, Seabreeze 14
Danny Cowgill said it best
Friday night, following Nease
High's 24-14 state playoff tri-
umph over visiting Daytona
Beach Seabreeze.
"The deeper you go [in the
state playoffs], the turnovers are
magnified," Cowgill, Nease
High's defensive coordinator,
explained Friday as Nease
clinched a berth in the Class 4A
state semifinals for the second


year in a row.
"We had a tremendous
amount of penalties, but the one
thing you can't have is self-
inflicted wounds," added Nease
head coach Craig Howard,
whose top-ranked team (13-0, 4A
No. 1) travels Friday to
Tallahassee's Gene Cox Stadium
to face unranked Lincoln High
(8-3).
"You certainly have to secure
the football in the playoffs."
Nease accrued 10 penalties for
91 yards Friday, but won the all-
important plus-minus turnover


ratio.
The Panthers scored the go-
ahead touchdown off the first of
three Seabreeze turnovers in the
fourth quarter.
Senior Zach Tronti 122 carries,
110 rushing yards waltzed into
the end zone six plays later on a
1-vard run to break a 14-all tie
with 7:57 to play.
Allen Schaefer capped the scor-
ing with a 32-yard field goal with
3:05 remaining to oust the No. 9
Sandcrabs 110-3; from the
regional finals.
"We made too many mistakes
to beat a good team likeNease,"
said Seabreeze head coach Marc
Beach after the game.
"The backbreaker was when it
was 14-14 and we give them the
ball right back [on a Jared
MacNaught interception at the
Nease 4-yard line].
"That's part of football.
Somebody is going to do it, and
somebody is not."
MacNaught's first of two sec-
ond-half interceptions broke
open a tight game between a pair
of mirror teams.
Nease and Seabreeze run
spread offenses steered by fleet-
footed junior quarterbacks.
The difference-maker is that
Nease hugs the ground more on
offense behind a gnnding run
game.
That wild card was evident
Friday as the Panthers lugged the
leather on 43 of their 64 plays.
Tronti had 82 second-half
yards, including a 40-yard burst
to set up Schaefer's three-pointer.
Quarterback Ted Stachitas (878
rushing yards this season) had 63
yards on 16 carries for the game
and threw for 195 yards on 15 of
21 passing.
Seabreeze got ample produc-
tion out of its junior QB Troy
Dannehower l151 rush, 120
pass, but 1,000-yard rusher
Leroy Houston was held to 37
yards on 12 carries and for minus


14 vards in the second half.
The Sandcrabs also had a
chance to go up 17-14 at half-
time, but couldn't convert a 28-
yard field goal to cap a 13-play,
86-yard drive that consumed the
final sLx minutes of the second
quarter.
"That missed field goal hurt us,
momentum-wise," added Beach,
whose team fell to St. Augustine
in the 2002 regional finalsK
"We came away with zero and
that's counted as a turnover. We
played the run pretty good on
defense except for their quarter-
back scrambling."
Stachitas and Dannehower
traded big runs all night.
Both had at least six runs ot 9
yaids or more, with Dandte-
hower scoring on an 80-yard r u
on the game's opening play. '"'
Stachitas scored on a 20-yard
TD pass from Tronti and threw a
25-yard scoring strike to Collins
Lee to give Nease a 14-7 lead late
mn the first quarter.
Dannehower hit Daniel Pigott
in the flat for a 25-yard TD pass
to knot the score at 14 with 9:14
to play in the first half.
Neither team scored for the
next 25 minutes until HoustiSn
fumbled a pitchout with 10:39
left in the fourth.
Ben Cowell recovered the give-
away and Hunter Bates recovered
a muffed kickoff by Issac Brown
to preserve the victory, Nease's
22nd in a row.
MacNaught hauled in his sec-
ond pick with 1:51 remaining.
Nease converted only one of
its four takeaways into points,
but held Dannehower and
Seabreeze's five-wide offense out
of the end zone in the second
half.
"Their quarterback is a runner.
We had chances to get him on
the ground but he broke tackles,"
said Cowgill, whose unit has
given up only six second-half
points in the playoffs.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra. Leader









OPINION



Coughlin an intense coach and caring man


T he passing of long-time
Michigan head coach Bo
ISchembechler last week
at the age of 77 brought to
mind other great football
coaches who have been
known for being tough and
unrelenting, but just the
opposite to those who truly
know them.
Paul "Bear"
Bryant,, Vince .
Lombardi, John
McKay, Gen.
Bob Neyland
and Wallace
Butts, to name
just a few, were
all of that pat-
tern. One can
add Tom
Coughlin to
that, list as well.
You wouldn't,
call any of REX EDh
those coaches. PRES
"pussycats,"
exactly, but
their families
might.
Anyone, either as a player, a
fan or a member of the
media, who had the chance to.
know Coughlin in his time in
Jacksonville knew him not as
a stringent, hard-as-nails lead-
er but as an understanding -
-man with a determination to
win. And as a man who cared.
Coughlin did win for the
first part of his coaching
tenure here. Had it not been
for the salary cap, which near-
ly caused the Jaguars to go
belly-up starting in 2000,
Jacksonville surely would
have made the Super Bowl


Basketball League
Beaches Basketball League
, winter registration for boys and
girls ages 3 years old through
5th grade is taking place now
through Dec. 1. The season runs
from Jan. 2 until March and tea-
tures an 8-game schedule.
For more information visit
beachesbasketball.com or phone
Tommy Hulihan at 349-2611.
Bowling
There is. bowling league for .
seniors 55 and up at Beach Bowl
,on Beach Boulevard.
Competition in the Monday
league begins at 1 p.m., with
practice starting at 12:45 p.m.
Call Paula at 249-9849 for infor-
,mation.
Lacrosse
The Ponte Vedra Lacrosse girls
program is going to have two
signups. The first is from 2 p.m.
to 5 p.m. Dec. 10 at the
Landrum fields. The second is
from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 7,
also at the Landrum fields. A
free clinic will be given that day
from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Starting this week, forms are
available at school for ttuough-
the-mail signups. Also, signups
can be accomplished by e-mail-
ing Leslie Santillo at pvbgirl-
slax(aol.com.


and in so doing have set a
record for accomplishing that
feat in the shortest time.
The players who were inter-
viewed last week as
Coughlin's New York Giants
came to town knew him far
better than those of us in the
media who often got to wit-
ness his ire. I got along with
Father Tom (named him in
honor of his
religious convic-
tions and occa-
sional fatherly
-image). I never
seemed to ask
him anything
that brought
� . out Mr. Hyde. If
-. I had, i might
not be here
/ today.
Much has
. been written
MONDSON about
S BOX Coughlin's fine,
charitable work,
but other little
things often go
unwritten.,We've'seen him
help people at the airport and
elsewhere. He cares so much .
about his players he does per-
sonal things for them that
many coaches might over-
look.
Maybe the most objection-
able thing to the media was
one of Tom's GoldeffnRules:
"Thou shalt not talk to the
assistant coaches." Everything
had to come through the
head coach.
, To many of us who had
been in the business for
decades before Tom Coughlin
came, it seemed ludicrous. But

One day I almost did.
Running into an assistant in a


hallway at Alltel Stadium with
nobody around, I asked how
he was doing and he replied,
"Fine." Then-I remembered
the rule.
"Oops. You won't tell that I
spoke to you, will you?" I
said. He laughed, put a finger
to his lips and said softly,'"I
won't if you don't tell that I
answered.you."
But mostly it was all in fun.


Somebody said Tom never
laughed. I said, "Oh, yes. I
saw him laugh one day when
a reporter slipped and landed
on his rear."
Still, we were sorry to see
Coughlingo and we're
delighted he's kept a home
here. A man of Tom
Coughlin's character and class
comes along all too rarely.
Especially in pro sports.

Montessori Tides School celebrates 20

years of joyful learning at the Beaches


. For the past two decades, the
faculty and staff of nationally
recognized Montessori Tides
School in Jacksonville Beach
have dedicated themselves to
offering young learners a
unique environment - one
that follows a traditional
Montessori approach to educa-
tion.
"In 1986 we opened our
doors as a privately owned and
operated Montessori school for
children ages three to six
years," said Kathy Graham;,
founder, director and owner of
the school. "Since then we've
expanded twice - in 1997 our
program included toddlers
through grade 6, and in 2005
we expanded yet again
through grade 8."
Fully accredited by the
American Montessori Society,
the Florida Kindergarten
Council and the Southern
Association of Colleges and
Schools, Montessori Tides has
also played a major role in the
expansion of Montessori in The students at Montesso
Duval County's public school The students at Montessoiappr
system and as a model school, traditional Montd Leslisoe. appr
many of its former teachers Emily, Lucy andLeslie.
have gone on to become
nationally certified teachers, owners of other Montessori
schools, or teacher-educators.
In addition to its national recognition and national,
regional and state accreditation, Montessori Tides School is
unique, said Graham. "We enable children to learn
through self-motivation while at the same time provide
the environment for them to discover the feelings of per-
sonal joy generated by personal accomplishment," she
said. "We also help them learn how to work to completion
without stopping so they can experience the excitement of
persevering with something, which eventually they are
able to finish all by themselves!"
Montessori Tides School bases its philosophy on the tra-
ditional Montessori that first and foremost considers what
is best for each individual child. "We also have an interna-
tional orientation," said Graham, who was not only
trained by one of the "pioneers" who brought Montessori
education to the United States but also is the only
Montessori director in Northeast Florida who holds an
internationally recognized diploma and is an active trainer
for future Montessori teachers.
So what is Montessori?
The Montessori instructional method is based on a
unique pedagogical philosophy developed almost 100
years ago by Dr. Maria Montessori. "Basically, Dr.
Montessori's philosophy aims for the fullest possible devel-
o btEninrf the h an' potential as preparation for life,"
ihte.Lsaid. "'Ir htessori, leaming.di a'idynami pro-
cess in which a child's WHOLE personality must be active-
ly engaged - that means we give the child the freedom to
develop physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritu-
ally."
The method is based on one crucial value: a child's own
self-motivation, according to Graham. "This doesn't mean
that teachers are observers only, however," she said. "First,
teachers prepare the environment for leaning, direct
learning activities, serve as guides and offer the child stim-
ulation. Then they stay back and observe the child reveal
herself/himself through their 'work,' which becomes the
child's motivating force."

i Tides School experience the joy of learning with the school's
coach to education. Pictured above are students (left to right)


With this philosophy in mind, Montessori Tides School
has two goals, Graham said. "First, we believe that each
child should be allowed to experience the excitement of
learning by his or her choice rather than being forced," she
said. "Secondly, we help the children perfect their individ-
ual learning skills so their abilities will be at a maximum in
future learning situations."
What is the Montessori learning environment like?
Graham cites three characteristics. "First, we focus on the
unique styles of learning of every child, rather than on cur-
riculum expectations and standards," she said. "We also
design a carefully prepared learning environment to meet
the children's interests, development and abilities. The
teachers do this by designing and adapting the environ-
ment and by modifying the educational materials so that
the needs of the children are best served."
Learning activities at Montessori Tides School include
many opportunities for hands-on learning, which are
motivated by the child's natural desire for exploration and
discovery. All of the activities are developmentally appro-
priate based on scientific observation and research.
Is Montessori Tides the right place for your child?
Graham said no one educational approach can be right
for every learner. "The most relevant question in selecting
a Montessori school is to consider how well it matches
your sense of what you want for you child and then to seek
out the best fit - not only between your child and the
schodF but'allso between' your own parental values and
goals for yotr child's education and what a particular
school can deliver," she said.
To this end, Graham invites parents and grandparents to
call Montessori Tides to make arrangements to visit the
9,000-square-foot school, observe classes, meet its top-
notch certified faculty and staff and learn more about the
Montessori approach to education.
Montessori Tides School is located at 1550 Penman Rd.
in Jacksonville Beach. For mote information about the
school, its philosophy and upcoming events, please call
