JB to build

new center

above #3

storm surge

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF it'RITER
Jacksonville Beach officials
will look for ways to get a new
community recreation center
off the ground at the South
Beach Park.
The City Council Monday
approved the funding of a
design/build contract to build
the 3,000-square-foot recre-
ation facility and parks
administration offices at the
10.5-acre park at the city's
south end.
Hardened construction will
also allow the facility to dou-
ble as a government building
and emergency operations
center if City Hall and other
municipal facilities are
downed during a hurricane.
The building was designed
to withstand a category three
hurricane with winds over
160 mph and will be raised
above a category three flood
stage elevation.
Mayor Fland Sharp said city
planners will meet with the
design build team to deter-
mine the feasibility of raising
the building an additional
foot "in case the big one hits."

Tax office moving to NB,


JEA office here uncertain


FROM STAFF
Beach residents who want to
renew a.vehicle tag will have to
do so by mail, take a trip across
the ditch or wait until a new
Beach office opens Dec. 18.
Those wanting to pay electri-
cal bills toJEA may find it even
tougher as there is no longer a
Beach office for JEA - and it is
unsure if one will reopen.
The tax collector's office in
Atlantic Beach is moving to a
new location and currently has
no office at the Beaches.
according to a representative
from the Duval County Tax
Collector's office.
The current location at 31
Sailfish Drive closed Dec. 1.
Plans are to reopen the office at


a new location,in the
Tradewinds Shopping Center,
1505 Atlantic Boulevard, in
Neptune Beach on Dec. 18.
Currently, the closest tax col-
lector's office for Beaches resi-
dents is the Kernan branch
located at 1220-102 Atlantic
Blvd. That is where customers
are directed to go until the new
office opens, according to a
representative. Paperwork for
titles and other tax collector
business may be processed at
the Kernan office, according to
a representative.

Mediator's decision on Wal-Mart

for Neptune Beach due by Dec. 22


by ALEXANDRA KLNINIERNES
STAFF I'RIJTER
,*'..Now that, the city of Neptune Beach and the
owners of the property where a Wal-Mart 'has
been proposed have presented their cases to a
mediator, both sides are awaiting a recommen-
dation to see if a compromise can be made.
. A Special .Magistrate's hearing, overseen by
Carlos Alvarez; allowed both the owners of
Lakeshdre' Village.and the city to argue their
sides of the case over a proposed \Val-Mart at
630 Atlantic Boulevard.
"This is a land use issue in Neptune Beach,
and by that I mean it is not a land user issue,"
*:said KarL.-anders, attorney for the owners of
Lakeshore Village.
Chris White, city attorney, countered, saving
that Sanders' arguments were nothing but "red
herrings." , .
The hearing, held at the Florida Coastal
School of Law, stretched over the course of two
days with the goal being to reach an amicable
agreement and avoid a lawsuit, according to
Alvarez, who has specialized ini alternative dis-
pute resolution for 10 years.
Alvarez said he will publish his recommenda-
tion, which is not legally binding, by Dec. 22.
From there, both sides have 45 days to respond,
if they so choose, according to White.
Although neither side can win or lose, the
city is at least able to use this mediation to gain
a better understanding of their position in a
legal sense, should a lawsuit ensue, according


to Mayor Dick Brown.
"I think it's a very good process for both
sides," said Brown, who also explained that it is
*important for the community as well.
-Although it was not a requirement of the
mediation, Alvarez also allowed the public to
share their comments at a public hearing held
at city hall last Thursday night. More than 20
people spoke, including some residents from
surrounding cities, sharing strong opinions
both for and against the proposed Wal-Mart.
The city has rejected WVal-mart's bid to build
on the site of a former strip center, citing traffic
and other concerns.
Allison Forsyth, one of the owners of Aqua
East Surf Shop, explained that the store has a-
covenant which states "that no building shall
be erected...with a rear elevation facing to the
west."
If the proposed Wal-Mart were to be built, it
would be in direct violation of this covenant,
Forsyth said.
Others expressed their general concerns with
a Wal-Mart coming to Neptune Beach.
"This is a community of residents, not a com-
munity of businesses," said Linda Padrta.
"On a personal level, I am appalled at the
arrogance of this corporation," said David
Porter, speaking of Wal-Mart's request.
Dana Pardee, City Councilor Eric Pardee's
wife, said she fully supports a Wal-Mart in
Neptune Beach and argued that "this is a case.
of discrimination."

A nuclear-powered carrier is
one of 13 options for home-
porting additional surface ships
at Nlayport' Naval station,
according to naval representa-
tives at a meeting Tuesday.
A "scoping" meeting, held at
FCCJ's South Campus, was to
explain the impacts of possibly
homeporting Atlantic Fleet sur-
face ships in Mayport.
The proposed action is being
evaluated in an environmental
impact study ElS'i, that will
most likely be finished in 2009,
due to the a'tbuht of informa-
tion needed, federal officials
said.
The public comment period
will last until Dec. 29, which is
an important aspect of the plan,
according to K.C. Marshall, a
media relations officer, who
said he wants people to give as
much feedback as possible.
The plan offers 13 options, all
of which are being evaluated in
the study, including homeport-
ing various combinations of
surface ships, such as cruisers,
destroyers, frigates, amphibious
assault ships, amphibious trans-


port dock ships, dock landing
ships or a nuclear-powered air-
craft carrier, according to a fact
sheet. One of the 13 options is
not to change anything or bring
any new ships.
Each of these alternatives rais-
es questions regarding the endi-
ronment and the socio-eco-
nomic impact of bringing in
more ships, according to federal
representatives at Tuesday's
meeting.
"When you bring in a ship,
you're not just bringing in a
crew," said Tom Quinn, a Navy
captain and project representa-
tive.
The community would be
impacted by population growth
from the several thousand peo-
ple that would come into
Mayport with the additional
ships.
Other concerns include the
environmental impact. For
example, if a nuclear carrier was
brought in, the harbor would
have to be dredged. One of the
questions posed was where the
collected debris would go.

With Word Power, PV fifth

grader defines her future


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
A is for alter, the first word to
be defined by the 10 fifth-
graders competing against
each other Friday in the cafete-
ria at. Rawlings Elementary
School
The youngsters, each of
whom had won the right to
represent his or her class in the
competition, were.taking part
in the Reader's Digest National
Word Power Challenge.
After 23 rounds of questions,
Ann Diinn was declared the
winner, making her eligible to
take an online exam taken by
school winners around the
country.
With the other fifth graders
sitting on the cafeteria floor
behind them, each of the 10
classroom winners sat in a.
chair facing a screen and hold-
ing a white marker board and
black marker. '
After a question was shown
on: the screen and read aloud,,
the competitors had 15 sec-
onds to write down the letter.
of the correct definition.
The students would choose a
correct word to fill in a blank
or pick from meaningsto make
a sentence correct.
For example, question No. 1


said that to alter time, you
need A) a watch, B) something
to do, C) a plan of action or D)
a time machine. (If you picked
D, you're right.)
The third question stumped
three competitors: Gaining
affluence means getting A) a
fatter belly, B) a fatter wallet,
C) faster wit or D) a fairer face.
With eight students out, the
tension grew as the final two
fifth graders '- Ann' and,
Patrick Nash - correctly
answered question after ques-


tion.
But finally, the word "smol-
dering" decided the winner.
After getting her award, Ann,
was asked how it is she is so
good at vocabulary.
' I don't know," she said.
Does she read a lot?
"Kihd of." ,
WVhat is her favorite subject?
"Science."
The fourth grade winner at
Rawlings - Brett Greene -
also is eligible to take the
national online test.


Elevated: Community Center going up

"I like things a little bit off

ing that approval of the fund-

City Councilman Rick'
Knight said he supported
revising the plans now rather
than trying to adjust the
design down the road.
"It's a whole lot easier to
raise it now than later," he
said..

"This is some of the highest

Senior center turns 3 as new center grows


FROM STAF /
A party at the Palm Valley
Community Center Thursday'
marked the three-year anniver-
sary of the programs for seniors
that are offered there on
Tuesday and Thursdays.
Meanwhile, a' permanent,
10,000-square-foot senior cen-
ter is on schedule to open this
spring on Landrum Lane just
west of Palm Valley Road.
"Our goal all along was to
have it completed before the'
[Players Championship] golf
tournament," Kevin Wiseman,
project manager for St. Johns
County construction, said
Thursday.
"We should be done well
before that."
S The tournament begins May

One of the big differences


between the temporary senior
center quarters at 148 Canal
Blvd. and the one being built,
is the latter's full-service
kitchen.
Although hot lunches are
offered at the Canal Boulevard
facility, the food is prepared at
the main Council on Aging
center in St. Augustine, trans-
ported in bulk to Canal, kept
hot in a makeshift kitchen in a
building behind the center and
assembled by volunteers.
Another feature of the new,
low-country-style senior center
is the wraparound porch on
three sides that will have ceil-
ing fans, "which is kind of a
nice feature," Wiseman said.
Access to the center will be
from Landrum Lane, and park-
ing will be off Landrum, he
said. An overhang will allow

visitors to be dropped off while
being protected from the
weather, he said.
Also adding to the charm of
the new center are the wet-


lands to the center's east,
toward Palm Valley Road.
The center will have four
activity rooms and wheelchair
ramps.

vote bloc on SJ commission


A


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
Last week's action-packed
meeting of the St. Johns
County Commission - the
first full meeting with new-
comers Ron Sanchez and Tom
Manuel - revealed a powerful
new majority with the desire
to make drastic changes.
Voting together as a bloc on
Nov. 28, the new Commission
chair, Ben Rich, along with
Manuel and 'Sanchez were.
able to remove appointed off i-
cials from office and, some'
say, force a veteran staff mem-'
ber to retire.
Commissioner Cyndi
Stevenson equated the power-
ful trio to a "posse" that. is
purposely trying to make ene-
mies in the county and the
state.
"The wheels are in motion,"
Stevenson 'said in 'an inter-
view the next day.
"I think we stand a chance
to lose some of our best peo-
ple." ,
County Administrator Ben,
Adams announced at the end,
of last week's commission
meeting that he plans to retire.
in January because of the new.
board's wish for a "new begin-
ning."
Rich said meetings held .this
week with Adams about his
retirement were amicable, but
Stevenson said that Adams is
most definitely being "pushed
out" by the new board.
Only commissioners. Rich,
Manuel and. Sanchez were
present for Adams' announce-
ment.
Commissioner Jim Bryant
was absent from the after-
noon session because, he said,
he had prior engagements. ,
Stevenson walked out of the
meeting after Rich asked for a
resolution opposing Gov. Jeb
Bush's appointment of former
commissioner Karen Stern's to
the Northeast Florida
Regional Council.
Stevenson said that she
walked out of the meeting
because she was "disgusted"
with Rich's request.
"I'm aghast.. I'm so embar-


Cyndi Stevenson


rassed," Stevenson said.
"I just didn't want to be any
part of it. It's so incredibly
stupid. It's politically naive.
It's like going out and picking
a fight that'you don't have to
.pick." , I " - .1 1'
With, the consensus, of
Manuel and Sanchez, Rich
asked County Attorney
Patrick McCormack to. draft
the resolution opposing
Stern's appointment so it's
.ready for a vote at the next
commission meeting, Dec. 12.
Stevenson also grew angry
i earlier in the meeting, when
the board was considering
applicants to fill two seats on
the St. Johns Planning and
Zoning Agency (PZA).
Rich, Manuel and Sanchez
voted to clear all six members
from the commission-
appointed PZA and start from
scratch.
A stunned Stevensodn
argued that she was not pre-,
pared to make appointments
for all six positions and said
she felt the vacancies should
be properly advertised so as to
encourage more applicants..
But McCormack advised
that the,move was within the
board's legal rights and the
PZA slate was cleared in a 3-2
vote, with :Stevenson and
Bryant dissenting.
Two- of the. sitting PZA
members, Deanne Grayson
and Dennis Shepherd, were
reappointed to serve the
remainder of their current
terms. Henry Green, whose
term ton the PZA expires


today, was reappointed for
another four years.
Brad Nelson and Jason'
Barrett, both of whom had
only served onr the PZA for a.
year, were removed from their
positions.
Brian Pincket was appoint-
ed to serve the rest of Nelson's
'term.' And for the remainder
of Barrett's term the board
chose David Wiles, despite
vehement opposition from'
Bryant, who said Wiles fla-
grantly 'violated Sunshine
laws when he previously
served on .the PZA.
No representative of District
4 - Ponte Vedra Beach- was
chosen for the board. Manuel
said there was no applicant
from District 4,. which is
Manuel's district.
The commission's packet of
documents, however, includes
an application from Rita
Friedman ot Ponte Vedra
Beach, who' served oh the St.
Johns County, Water and
Sewer Authority from 1997 to
2005.
Stevenson hinted during
last week's meeting .that the
vote to remove certain ,PZA
members appeared to be
planned, a suggestion that
was denied by Sanchez in the
meeting. . :'
In a tongue-and-cheek sug-"
gestion, she asked that maybe
the board. should "have, a
workshop, so you guys [Rich,
Manuel and Sanchez] could
tell us what else you have
planned."
Stevenson ,said Wednesday
that she does not believe that,
the three broke any Sunshine
laws, which prohibit elected
officials from privately dis-
cussing government business.
.But she said she, does
believe .they went against the
intent of the law.
She added that although
she does not dislike the new
commissioners or Rich, she
does think they used "poor
form" Tuesday and are drift-
ing from their election plat-
forms that boasted a strict fol-
lowing of county policies and
procedures.


"We have rules so that we
can have good process for the
citizens of this county," she
said WVednesday.
"I don't hate them [Rich,
Manuel and Sanchez]. They
just need to behave."

The building will feature a

Two smaller rooms can be
converted into one common

"I've been lobbying for this
to come together since I came
on board," Councilor Penny
Christian said. "A lot of this
will be paid with south end
redevelopment monies and,
that's another important issue
to look at."
I Christian said the city will
have ,to impose a rental fee
schedule but funding the.
project. with Tax Increment
Funds is "close. enough to
break even" on the cost.
Lindorff, in his staff recom-,
n mendation, said sufficient
funds are available in the
South Beach Tax Increment
Funds.
The project will utilize
approximately $2,359,000 in
TIF monies for the construc-
tion and will rely .on other
funding sources to furnish it.


The City Council must allo-
cate monies from the city's
general fund should addition-
al expenses arise. ,
Councilor Linda Spence at
her final meeting before she
officially leaves office today
said the city's plans for com-
munity center were a long
time coming.
"I an really pleased that
we've gotten to this point,"
she said. "I'm happy to have
gotten here and happy that .
I'm a part of it."

AB eyes well

protection

: FROM STAFF'
The fairness of a proposed
ordinance that establishes a
wellheads protection area
around public Wells to protect
them from contamination is
the subject of debate in
Atlantic Beach.
The law would require that
any new deep private wells be
properly constructed and
maintained and inspected at
the owner's expense.
The city's 2015
Comprehensive Plan requires
that regulations be included to
protect potable water wells
from sources of contamina-
tion. To do this, a 500-foot
radius protection area will be
established around public
wells, according to Utility
Director Donna Kaluzniak.
The ordinance would also
,require. anyone with a deep
well; which is considered to be
anything frorn 300 feet to
1,200 feet, within the "buffer"
area to comply with city and
state regulations, according to
City Manager Jim Hanson.
However, the commission
recently debated whether it
was fair to charge any inspec-
tions, maintenance and gener-
al upkeep expenses to the
owner, even though there are
currently only two privately
owned deep wells, which are
not affected by this ordinance,
according to Hanson.

St. Johns voice should be area choice


To the editor:
In the election just complet-
ed, Karen Stem, the incumbent
County Commissioner from
District 2, was denied a second
term capturing just 43 percent
of the Republican primary vote.
The perception of mismanage-
ment of growth and her reliance
on campaign funding from
developers, many outside the
County, became a major cam-
paign issue for both incumbents
and both lost.
in spite of this, we under-
-tand Ms. Stern is being put for-
ward as a candidate for mem-
bership on the Northeast
Florida Regional Planning
Councd representing St. Johns


'County on the very growth
issues that cost her the election.
Shouldn't the newly seated
County Commission have a say
as to who represents them on
this regional body? Shouldn't
St. Johns County's interest be
strongly represented and not
necessarily subordinated to a 7
County regional body with a
strong Duval focus?
It certainly doesn't help that
Ms. Stern has appeared to be
hostile to a majority of the new
Board of County
Commissioners.

Mix It Up program is innocent


To the editor:
- recent letter to the editor
perfectly illustrated why there is
a need for anti-bullying efforts
in our public schools. It ill-
served the public debate for
someone to seek out a conspira-
cy in what was a purely inno-
cent event that was designed to
foster a climate of understand-
ing. It was especially harsh to
demonize the efforts of a school
that sought to create a better cli-
mate for everyone.
Firstly, 'MLx it Lip' day at
Mayport Middle School was a
voluntary activity where stu-
dents could sit with someone
with whom they would not nor-
mally associate. Students who
opted out were allowed to eat
lunch at their normal assigned
tables. Nobody was 'punished'
tor not taking part in this activ-

Having taught at Mayport
Middle for four years, almost
didn't recognize the 'armed
camp' that the previous letter
writer described. We had volun-
teers from the local naval base
at our school to assist with' the
event. Contrary to the conspir-


acy theorists, these caring mem-
bers of the community were not
enforcers of some imagined plot
to turn our children into com-
munists.
I assumed that the purpose of
'Mix it Lip' day would be a sim-n
pie one. My colleague, Linda'
Bishop and her Bullyproof Task
Force, dedicated herself to pro-
moting understanding among
our students. Their intention
was for us to transcend the lim-
itations of cliques that keep us
from developing a positive
sense of community. I saw
nothing that indicated that she
. was in league with either Hitler
or Stalin.
I am disappointed because,
once again, Mayport Middle is
the subject of misunderstand-
ing. Instead of .assuming the
worst, it would not hurt for us
to actually seek the truth before
jumping to conclusions. I am
proud of our school's efforts and
would invite that letter writer to
see our 'commune' for himself.

Waking up in unreal D.C., the

'Hollywood for ugly people'


y/ question: - How do you
" cure a young man's
infatuation with poli-
tics? . . ,
Answer: Get him a job in
Washington.
That's what happened to
David Lazar, a friend who left
Washington several years ago
fresh with a degree from George
Washington University and
flush with dreams of being a
political columrust for a major
newspaper. So he signed on as a
reporter for The Franklin Press
in Franklin, N.C.. where he cov-
ered meetings of the town
board, the board of health and
whoever else exercised their
constitutional right to assemble.
He got acquainted with real
people in the real world.
But now, following more
newspaper reporting in New
England, David is back in
Washington, writing speeches
for a small federal agency.
His infatuation, however, has
deflated.
""These people are not con-
nected to the real world," he
said in a telephone conversa-
tion last week. "I was impressed
when I was in college, but I did-
n't know any better."
. My question to David was
tis: '.Are VWashingtonians.
caught up in all the, ,celbun-i',
worship that is sweeping
Hollywood and the news
media, especially television,


PHIL HUDGINS
COLUMNIST

where divorces, love affairs and
Tom and Katie masquerade
"Washington is called
Hollywood for ugly people,"
said David, a master turner of
phrases. "Hollywood people
come to Washington. It's the
same thing in either place. And
they're fascinated with this cul-
ture. Maybe it's the shared need
for attention."
"He referred to the entourage
of toadies who hang around the
famous and infamous to assure
them they're doing a wonderful
job. The Senate dining room, he
said, "looks like the cantina
scene from 'Star Wars.' What a
collection of oddballs. ..."
And the party scene in
Washington is unbelievable.
.. ::In,.(Iive, nunueyt6^';.^,w/,,
"you'll know the contents of
someone's resume and their
Roladex, but absolutely nothing


about them personally. In the
meantime, they're scanning the
rest of the room to see if there's
someone else more important
to be talking to. If you say some-
thing, you get 'uh-huh, uh-huh,
uh-huh.' Good manners are a
casualty up here."
Practically everybody in
Washington, David said, is there
for a reason: to rise. Which
makes it hard for a single guy to
find a date who's not self-
absorbed.
As for how government
works, well, you know how it is.
You have the extremes like Sen.
Ted Stevens, who wanted to.
build a S315 million bridge to
serve 50 residents in Alaska -
"someone said for the cost of
the bridge, you could buy each
of those residents a Lear Jet,"
David said - and you have
"some idealists" who really
want to do a good job.
But nearly all of them, he
said, focus on getting re-elected.
That's what it's all about.
With all its flaws, however,
David would tell you, our gov-
ernment is still ahead of whoev-
er is second. But sometimes he
almost yearns for a good ol'
town hall meeting in Franklin,
N.C., where the world, for the
mpst part, still hunctons' the
y.intended: se,Tice above sel
intended: service above self.


Let the ooh-rahs ring out loud


They're going to make a
Marine out of me or kill
me trying." That was the
first message - on a post card"
- which my late wife, Lucy,
'and I received from our son, .
Eric, now a war veteran, after
he went to Marine Corps boot"
camp. It and "Always
Faithful," the English transla-
tion of "Semper Fidelis," the
Corps' motto, says a lot about
why that part of our armed
forces is so revered. It also
helps to explain why the new
Museum of the Marine Corps
was conceived and construct-
ed.


It took three years to build
the facility, which is located on
135-acres adjacent to the
Quantico, Virginia, Marine
Corps base. According to the
museum's Internet web site
(www.usmcmuseum.org), it
was dedicated on Nov. 10,
2006, in time to celebrate 231
years of United States Marine
Corps history.. The web site
contains much information
about the Museum, including
the fact that it has separate gal-
leries devoted to \World War II,
the Korean War, the Vietnam
War, and the Global War on


JOHN
HARDEBECK
COLUMNIST


Terrorism.
To illustrate the realism. of
the designs, the Potomac
,News, an area publication,
described the experiences had
by early viewers of the Hill 881
South exhibit in the Vietnam
War gallery. It simulates the
1968 siege of Khee Sanh:
"Visitors entered the exhibit
through a CH 46 helicopter
fuselage. They could hear the
dialogue between the pilot and
crew chief as they head for a,
landing. In a 360-degree envi-


ronment, visitors then
encounter the sights arid
sounds 'of the war as a Navy
Corpsman tends to a Marine
on a stretcher and a chaplain
leans over a Marine killed in
action." ,
Said one visitor, Joseph
Alvino of Long Island, N.Y., a
'former Marine sergeant and
Vietnam War veteran, "I was at
this part of the battle. 1 was
one of the few in my unit to
survive. It was a very bad bat-
tie. To see this is very emotion-
al for me."
At Jax Beach's American
Legion Post 129, as elsewhere,
former Marines, wearing red
USMC shirts, my son included,
celebrate the Corps' birthday
with a cake cutting on or near
Nov. 10 each year. During the
brothers-iri-arms conclave,
"Ooh-rah!," the standard
Leatherneck greeting, is often
heard. I think it would be a
nice touch if a Museum video
could be shown at the post
soon as a sort of preview, pend-
ing an actual Museum visit.
I've suggested that to the
Museum's Director, and they
may produce one. Meanwhile,
let the ooh-rahs ring out.


To the editor:
If saving the. 'quaint vil-
lage"', of Neptune Beach is so
urgently important, why is it
that ohly one Councilman
attended the special hearing
in its entirety? Not: even "the


most vocal opponent" of Wal-
Mart was'in full attendance..
Our Mayor did not attend at
all.
To me, this shows they have
more interest in rhetoric and,
hysteric emotion rather than


in the law. That's what got us
in this position in the first
place. ,

Snobbery is cause of most Wal-Mart opposition


To the editor:
Snobbery aside, look at the
reasons which some people
give in opposition to Wal-
Mart, as 'quoted in The
Leader. Wal-Mart will bring
crime to Neptune Beach, as
though Wal-Mart is a branch
of the Mafia. This complaint
resembles hysteria more 'than
anything else.,
Wal-Mart will create traffic
where there was no traffic..
Uh, yes. And?


Successful businesses usual-
ly attract traffic. .Traffic at
any location would not be an
exotic novelty at the beach or
anywhere else in the county,
Wal-Mart will put local
businesses out of business.
Such as? The complainers are
never specific. With the
exception of Kmart and
Winn-Dixie, surrounding
businesses are apparently safe
from competition. Wal-Mart
has nothing to offer in com-


petition with Popeye,s, KFC,
the diner or the specialty'
businesses in what,s call the
"town center." CVS and
Walgreen's are enormous
chain stores arid can take care
of themselves.
All of the complaints are
apparently some kind of
snobbery at work in the heads
of the contrarians.

It used to take an act of
Congress to get a picture on
a, US Postage Stamp. The
hero, icon or legend never got
to see the honor bestowed upon
them, because they were dead.
The King of Rock and Roll had
been gone 15 years before his
picture graced envelopes in
America. He never got to- say'.
*"Thank you very much!" Elvis
had already left the building!
Yesterday I received a
Christmas card that would
make Elvis turnover in his
grave. I looked at the top right
corner of the envelope and
actually pinched myself to'
make sure I was awake. The 39
cent US Postage stamp had a
picture of my cousin Marlene,
and her future ex husband Billy
Shaw from; Brunswick!
Underneath that Was a card
postmarked Palatka, with my
old buddy Bubba on the stamp
with his hat turned backwards!
By then, I figured, ElMis must be
spinning in his grave.
When I got back into our
kitchen I opened Marlene's
card. There was her usual
Christmas letter explaining that
things just hadn't worked out
with the husband she had earti-.
er in the year, Melvin Dudley,
but that her current husband
would be around "forever and a
day." That should mean Billy
would last 24 hours longer than
Melvin, who was just going to
be around "forever." Then I got
to the part explaining the
stamp.
"Billy .and I logged on to
Ph P's9t W.n ps.cqrP.aI'd, opi.dered,,
three sets of stamps. Along
with our picture, we also have a
batch with our hunting dog
Norton and another with
Melvin's old 1150 I got in the
divorce. I sent your Mama the
version with the dog and Aunt
Nonie the one with Melvin's
old truck. When y'all are home
this Christmas, ask them to
show you. Billy has really fixed
up the truck. The gun rack's
twice as big as it was. He also
put some neon lights under the
doors, shag carpet in the cab,
and Astro Turf in the bed. Oh,
and he removed those tacky
mud flaps! I married class this
.time!"'
Thankfully, I was spared an
annual Christmas letter from
Bubba, but he did enclose a
photo of his dog, Horace, and
his wife, Shirley Q, standing on
the bed of his Dodge Ram pick
up. Horace had a quail in his
mouth, and Shirley Q was wear-
ing a camouflaged bath robe
with her hair in curlers, blow-
ing in the barrel of Bubba's 22!
A picture is worth a thousand'
words, and the Palatka Post
Office workers should be thank-
ful Bubba chose. his own pic-
ture, and not this one for his
stamp!
Out of curiosity I logged on
to Postagestamps.com 4nd got
the skinny on these 2006 "dig
me" stamps. They are put
together by the Smithsonian
Institute, arn official US Post
Office vendor. Email them your
picture of choice and for $17.99
you'll receive a book of 20
stamps. You only pay $9,25
over the regular cost of stamps.
If your picture is really special it
will get displayed as a giant
stamp at the Smithsonian
National Postage Museum! ,1
think Marlene's and Bubba's
photos are more likely to be dis-
played at the Smithsonian
office Christmas Party!
Last night I called my Mama
and she told mre she was in the
middle of hosting one of her
Red Hat Society events. I could
hear all thisside splitting laugh-
ter in the background. I said
"What's, so funny?"
My. Mama answered "Uh, oh,
er, uh nothing."
Suddenly it hit me, "You
showed the ladies Marlene's old
dog on the stamp didn't you?"
"Well, it was just lying on the
card table, and you have to
admit old Norton is not the
prettiest dog in the kennel,
Bless his heart. And your
cousin Marlene, do you think
this marriage will last until New
Years? Bless her heart too!"

Outlook for Florida real estate


market not entirely negative


,by CATHY KEEN
CONTRIBUTOR
While the outlook for sales of homes
and condos in Florida is bleak, the real
estate prognosis for business properties is
much better as it rides on a still-strong
state economy, according to a University
of Florida study released today,
Nearly half of Florida real estate
experts say it's a poor time to build sin-
gle-family housing and more than two-
thirds say so about condos, bit they're
more optimistic about all other types of
properties, said Wayne Archer, director
of UF's Bergstrom Center for Real Estate
Studies. The results are from the center's
fourth quarterly survey of Florida real
estate trends that was completed in
October. :
"Condominium' markets are clearly
struggling and single-family markets are
i softening, although, contrary to some
news reports, we don't see evidence of
prices tumbling," Archer said. "But the
picture is pretty healthy when you look
at everything else. One important indi-
; cator of the real estate market is occu-
pancy rates, and these appear to be sta-
ble, or increasing in most markets,
I including apartments, office buildings,
I retail space, and industrial warehouse
and distribution space."
More than 70 percent of th6se sur-
veyed said now is a bad time to build
condos, and .46 percent said ,the same
thing about single-family housing, but
for 10 other property types the respon-
dents were predominantly neutral or
even positive, he said.
, The foundation for the upbeat view
about business property is the relative


health and growth of Florida's economy,
Archer said.
"Employment is very good and the
fundamentals that drive rental.income
s.' and occupancy are still very strong,' he
said. "In addition, interest rates have'
remained perhaps a little more stable'
than some people expected."
The share of respondents expecting
, future declines in absorption rates - the
,rate at which properties are able to be
leased' or sold - remains Unchanged for
single-family housing at 61 percent since
July, Archer said. It inched up slightly for
E condos, from 69 to 71 percent.
"The main question we focused on is
how bad it is," he said. "There have been
so many news reports and rumors flying,
about how the condo bubble has burst
and how the length of time it takes to
sell a house has increased dramatically."
The results were somewhat more
sobering for prices. The percentage of
respondents expecting single-family resi-
dential prices in Florida to drop doubled
from 24 percent in July to 47 percent in
October, he said. .
For condominiums, the rate of decline
Was not as dramatic as it was for single-,
family homes because expectations had
already dropped in July, Archer said.
.Forty-four percent, of respondents said
they expected condo prices to decline in,
October, compared with 38 percent in
July, he said.,
"Condos have always been one of the
most volatile markets, in real estate,"' he.
said. ,"They're a place where naive
investors find it easy to jump in and
speculate." . ' oe
The condo market is probably over-
built at the moment, with properties tak-
ing longer than usual to sell, Archer said.


"If history is any, indication; condos
that have special attributes, such as
waterfront or lakefront, are those that
are going to survive the best," he said.
'One sign that pessimism about single-
family housing and condos does ri'not
extend to other real estate markets in
Florida is in capitalization rates, the
measure of how fast an investment Will
pay for itself in net cash, Archer said. If
there is growing apprehension about
rental markets, capitalization rates
should increase in response to rising per-
ceived risk, but respondents reported
capitalization rate increases of less than
a third, of a percent and even some
decreases among 10 rpajor property
types since July, he said.
The increasing cost of homeowners'
insurance in Florida was again a major
concern in' this survey, as it was in the
previous quarterly survey released. in
September. "However, the fact that the
investment outlook remains stable to
positive for most property types and the
fact that cap rates remain stable, signal-
ing continued investor confidence, are
both indicators' that the immediate
insurance crisis is not yet being viewed
as so bad that it has 'changed real estate
markets," Archer said.
For the survey, UF's Survey Research
Center asked a series of questions of 183
industry executives, real estate lawyers;
market analysts, title insurers, financial
advisers, market research economists,
real estate scholars and other experts in
the field.

COLUMNIST
S sisters Susan Cooper and
Catherine Reid have fond
memories of their child-
hood in Mayport. '
The-two women grew up in
a household with six brothers
and another sister, and one
filled with joy and plenty of,
activity.
Their late parents, Wilma
and Hobart Pack, raised a fam-
ily that remains close-knit
today.
In the late 1930's their
father opened Pack Seafood in
Mayport. Cooper said mem-
bers of the family continue to
operate the family business,
now called Safe Harbor
Seafood.
The family now includes 20
grandchildren, 15 great-grand-
children, and numerous sons-
in law and daughters-in-law.
When they were children,
Cooper and Reid said that the
boys and girls helped with
chores at home and learned to
cook, wash, and do other
household tasks.
They attended church as a
family, with all the children
walking to services behind
their parents "like ducks in a
row," the sisters recalled.
One of the values their
mother passed down to them
was a "tireless work ethic,"
they said. , ..:- ,.
'Feeding a family of this size
was no small task and their
mother cooked every day.
.: Everything- Was -made from
sc'rat'ch, and the sisters grew'
up not realizing that macaroni
and cheese, cakes, and other
dishes could be made from a
box bought at the grocery
store.
Their father believed that
children couldn't learn on an
empty stomach, said Reid.
Before heading off to school
the children always had a hot
breakfast of oatmeal, toast
made with an egg fried in the
middle, or fish and grits.
Most of their mother's
recipes were not written, she
just cooked and instinctively
knew how much to add and
how to do it, the sisters said.
Anyone, who wanted to
know how to make some-
thing, had to cook with her
and record the amounts and
techniques for themselves.
Even now, when the family
gets together, both sisters said
that though they try to dupli-
cate their mother,i cooking, it
"doesn't taste the same as
mom's."
Holidays and birthdays were
made to be very special in
,their home, said Reid. Every
child always had a birthday
cake baked and beautifully
decorated by their mother.
"Thanksgiving was about
being grateful and reminding
us of what we had to be grate-
ful for," she said. "Our values
were God, family, and coun-
try."
Christmas was a holy holi-


day with the observance cen-
tered around the nativity
every year, she said.
Their father enjoyed Santa
Claus and worked hard to
keep the belief alive for the
children as long as possible,
she said.
For both holidays, Wilma
Pack roasted a turkey with
dressing made two ways,
moist or dry, to please the
children. For Thanksgiving
there was "white ham" as the
children called uncured ham
and "pink ham" for
Christmas. Potatoes, sweet
potatoes, macaroni and
cheese, vegetables, and more
filled the table.
For every holiday, each
member of the family could
count on their mother making
one of their favorite dishes.
Since the family was in the
seafood business, seafood was
considered every day fare and
not special enough for holiday
meals.
However, Pack added
shrimp to the holiday menu
in later years to please the
son-in-laws who especially
enjoyed it, said Cooper.
The serving counter for the
holiday desserts in their fami-
Iv's home was "'like a -isiori.'
Eatch'Of'the childreti's
favorite dessert was there:
lemon pie, chocolate pie,
pecan pie, pumpkin pie, apple
pie, mincemeat pie, banana
cake and more.
Sour Cream Pound Cake and
Fruit Cake were two other
family favorite desserts made
by their mother. Cooper and
Reid as well as their sister
Abbie Durand make the fruit-
cake.
Their mother's recipe yields
two rich, moist, and delicious
fruitcakes.
The Sour Cream Pound Cake
recipe makes a cake so good
that neighbors and friends still
talk about their mother's cake.
Cooper and Reid agree that
their sister makes the best
Sour Cream Pound Cake, next
to their mother's.
Sweet Bread is a favorite
recipe now most often made
by their sister-in-law Becky
Pack. Not quite a cookie and
not really a bread, Sweet Bread
was often an after school treat
enjoyed by the children.
Mama's Dressing was baked
in a casserole or for extra
moistness it could be, baked
around the bottom of the :pan
with the roasting turkey.
The bread-based dressing is
enriched with hard boiled
eggs, chopped chicken, rice,
and potatoes.

Its not so muchi


size of gift as price tags


' he first edition of my
daughter's Christmas
wish list has found its:
way to the refrigerator door,
and it has made me long for
the old days. ' ,
During the old days when'
the two children were babies,
one of my greatest joys was.
to watch my Christmas Club'
savings account build up .
toward the end of the year. It
was never a lot but it was
always enough to allow me
to buy at least a few of the.
items that were on the refrig-
erator lists back then.
I would drop them at
school one winter morning
after Thanksgiving and head
to Tbyland just after it
opened and have the time of
my life .
This, mind you, was back
when Legos and baby dolls,
and the latest game were the
gifts that my children want-
ed more than anything.


KRIS RADISH
GUEST COLUMNIST
My, my, my ...hi.ow times
have changed. Instead of a.
car, I might need a. small
-cargo jet .to get what the
daughter wants this year. But
I think, there is a car on her
list, something new to
replace the old 1999 Pontiac
that she just had her first car
accident in to the uninsured
tune of $1,000. But I digress, ,
and this is a bad thing for
Santa Claus to do this time


of year.
Actually, it's not so much
the size of the gifts but the.
size of the price tags. Has
this kid fallen and hit her
head?
The little princess has guts,
I will give her credit for that,
because 'the first item on her
list is satin sheets. I am not
kidding. What is she think-
ing? How about something
like a pair of earrings or a,
CD, for crying out loud?
Other items on the list
include a television, some
orange shoes she keeps cir-
cling in all the magazines in
her bedroom, lots of money
to pay for the summer trip to
Spain and some boots that
look to me like an afghan I
once kept at the foot of my
bed.
This is just the first version
of the Christmas list which I
know from experience will'
change at least 20 times


before December 25. After,
her birthday - which needs
its own list - is January 5.
Her brother, who has never
asked for anything much in
his entire life, now wants a
scooter for college. Isn't he
hilarious? .Get on the bike,
Andrew, and hang on. To his
credit, he also told me he
needed a jacket because his
sweatshirt no longer worked,
and much to my credit, I
ordered him one right away.
This means his Christmas
list will now also include
things like shampoo, gum
and maybe one new pair of
underwear.
There is a difference in the
lists and obviously in the
kids, but I am beginning to
think Rachel might be
smarter than her brother.
Shoot for the satin moon,
and if you get a nice cotton
pillow, maybe that will make
you just as happy.

Settle down for a long winter's


nap with Bedti
Even if you don't wear a kerchief or bed
cap, it's time to catch a few z-z-z-z's during
that long winter's nap. Dave Fox, factory- Science.
trained and -certified mattress specialist
l9 and owner of Bedtime USA in Jacksonville
19 Beach, can help you find a mattress tai-
P lored to your individual preferences so
. your winter naps will energize you for the
bustle of the holidays.
Family-owned and operated and cele-
. rating four years in business in
Jacksonville Beach, Bedtime USA is your
mattress headquarters. Dave and his staff
have the expertise and inventory you need
to help you find the right mattress at the
right price.
"We are not a chain, yet we are one of
the only stores in northeast Florida and
southeast Georgia that carries such a com-
plete line of mattresses and bedding prod-
ucts," said Dave, who himself has more
than 20 years of experience in the business
and has lived at the Beaches for seven
years. "We have more than 40 mattresses
on display, and we'll help you find the one . ,
that's just right for you - and your budget!"
No matter what type of mattress you're
looking for, Bedtime USA most likely has it.
The list of brand-name products available
is impressive, including mattresses by
Ternpur-Pedic, Simmons, Englander,
Restonic, Spring Air, Chattam & Wells, and
King Koil and futons by Adonis Furniture
and Night and Day Furniture.
"We carry all seven models of the popu-
lar Tempur-Pedic brand - including the
GrandBed and the RhapsodyBed - often
described as the "Cadillac" of mattresses
because of its extravagant design and
unsurpassed luxury," said Dave. "No mat-
ter what type of mattress you prefer - a
natural latex mattress, a visco-elastic mem- Bedtime USA o
ory foam mattress, a traditional inner- at the beach -
spring mattress or any combination of mattresses, adj
these, we carry it," said Dave. Jacksonville Be
The importance of a good night's sleep
becomes apparent when Dave reminds customers that
they'll spend one third of their lives in bed. "So at Bedtime
USA customer comfort is our no. I priority - comfort in a
S mattress and comfort in its price," he said.
"Because we have'so many' mattresses in our inventory, we
can offer our customers the most comfortable mattress avail-
able in the most comfortable price range for them," he
added. "For example, we have twin sets for as low as $199.95
and queen sets for as low as $299.95."
Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the
lowest price the manufacturer allows, which means twin
Tempur-Pedic mattresses start as low as $699.
But Bedtime USA has more than the mattress of your
S.,ranms jpun intended). "We plso carry 20 different models
of adjustlbJ., be4d,5np s,Jed,fra*&e latform-tny beds,
headboards, futons, futon covers, pillows, bolsters, be'd pads,
mattress protectors and even some 'beachy' decorative
items," said Dave.
Expecting overnight guests for the holidays bed? Bedtime
USA can help. "We carry Adonis Furniture and Night and
Day Furniture, which manufacture some of the best futons
available," Dave said. "They offer 80 different designs of
futons, and we showcase 15 models in our store, not to
mention more than 300 fabric samples from SIS Fabrics, a
leader in designer furniture upholstery." Plus, Bedtime USA
adds a futon mattress cover with every futon frame and mat-
tress purchase.

wner Dave Fox says there's only one thing better than sleeping
and that's sleeping at the beach on one of the top-of-the-line
stable beds and futons available at Bedtime USA in
iach.


But Bedtime USA offers even more than wide selection
and variety, according to Dave. "We also provide a level of
personalized customer service not found in many larger
chains - and that makes us different. At Bedtime USA we
take care of our customers, work with them one on one and
help them make sound purchasing decisions."
Bedtime USA also offers free delivery throughout the
Greater Jacksonville area on a schedule convenient for cus-
tomers and their schedules. Some retailers offer a three-hour
or even half-day delivery "window." Not Bedtime USA. "Not
only do we give our customers a one-hour delivery schedule
but we also give them a call when the delivery truck leaves
the store," said Dave.
Stop by Bedtime USA and talk with Dave to see how you
can treat yourself to some well-deserved rest. Be sure to ask
about special holiday financing, too, which offers zero-per-
cent financing over three years for Tempur-Pedic products
and zero-percent financing for 12 months for all other mer-
chandise totaling more than $800.
Bedtime USA is located at 1384 Beach Blvd. next door to
the Moon Grille in the Beach Plaza Shopping Center and
just one block east of Penman Road and across from
Dunkin' Donuts.
Bedtime USA is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through
Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m.
Sunday. For more information, call 249-3398 or visit

hand the Mobility Opportunities Via Education
program at this school - the model school for
MOVE and one of only 16 schools in Florida
with this special program. The club members
leased more about plans for a special play-
ground which the club is sponsoring. The play-
ground will be designed for the use of the pro-
foundly disabled children in MOVE as well as
other students and community children. At right.
welcoming the Rotarians and sharing their expe-
riences with MOVE were Elizabeth Otterbein,
coordinator of MOVE at Neptune Beach
Elementary, Bonnie Palmer, Assistant Principal,
and Sherron Kenski, Principal.


On Saturday

AB city

employees

will host

Shop-N-

Drop

To give
parents a
chance to
shop for
holidays with
no children
in tow

FROM S TAFF
In Atlantic Beach, the city's
parks and recreation depart-
ment will host a second holi-
day shop-n-drop where par-
ents can drop off their chil-
dren, to be watched by city
employees, while the parents
catch up on holiday shop-
ping.
The event will be held on
Dec. 9 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
at the Adele Grage Center,
716 Ocean Blvd., It cost $20
per child between the ages of
5 and 12, and is open to any-
one. Pre-registration is sug-
gested because of limited
space, although there may
still be openings the day of
the event.
Margie Reeves, who is in
charge of parks and recreation
administration, said she initi-
ated the idea out of the good-
ness of her heart.
"I have a kid. I-t's hard
to drag them along Christmas
shopping," she said.
Because Reeves used to
work in a day-care center and
also supervises children dur-
ing summer camp, this event
seemed easy to her and makes
it easier on parents, she said.
Children will make crafts
and watch a movie. There
will also be a snowblowing
machine. Following the
shop-n-drop, there will be a
sing-along in Bull Park from 6
p.m. to 8 p.m. as well as a visit
from Santa. This event is free
and open to all. Refreshments
and cookies will be served.
For more information, con-
tact the parks and recreation
department at 247-5828.


Navy:

Cont. from- A-1
Although, the plan is in its
infancy stages, the Navy is
trying to address these con-
cerns as early as possible to
gain a better understanding of
how people feel and how the
plan would impact the com-
munity, according to Marshall.
"This is our chance to evalu-
ate ourselves, the project....is
this a viable option?," he said.
Members of the community'
were invited to drop by the
meeting to learn more about
the project or show support.
During the first hour of the
meeting a couple of dozen peo-
ple dropped in to ask questions
or offer comments.
Jlesse Murray, who is retired
from the Nav'y, said he sup-
ports the plan because it would
add to national security, the
local economy and it would be
good for the community as a
whole.

Fletcher boys and girls defeat Mandarin


Girls secure a season

sweep of the Mustangs


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

Traditionally, a good soccer
rivalry exists between Fletcher
and Mandarin. But last
Thursday night, it was clearly
one-sided.
In the opener, Carolina
Lencina's second half goal was
the difference as the Senators
topped the Mustangs, 3-2, to
complete a season sweep.

scored all three

because we were facing teams

But basking in the glow of a
season sweep over longtime
nemesis Mandarin, the coach
said she's pleased with her
team's progress.
"I'm happy where we are
right now. It's a long season
[and] we have a young team,"
said Pardue. "My concern is

Junior rnid-

the scoring just seven minutes
into the contest when he
banged home a rebound in
front of the net.
Cabe Nolan, Tony Kattieh
and Alex Schanen rounded out
the Fletcher scoring.
Senators head coach Mike
Levine said there was a lot to
like in the way his team played
.against Mandarin.
"I like that we scored four
goals," Levine said with a smile.
"We played well. They have a
kid up front that I thought was
a real dangerous player, who I

"We played very well defen-

sively, we're doing a real good
job. We're starting to figure it
out. We're starting to get the
rotations and step into players
a little bit better. I'm very
proud of how we did that."
Thursday's win was the 10th
game for the Senators this sea-
son and Levine sees improve-
ment.
"We're still trying to get to a
point where everybody is com-
peting all the time,' he said.
"The game we lost down in
Tampa (5-0 to Largol we never
had more than three guys at a
time playing. And everyone
else was just wearing a uniform
on the field.
"So it still comes back to bite
us once in a while. But we're
better now than we were, and
we'll be better by then end of
the year than we are right now."

"This is even better than the
first time we beat them because
this was at home."
Fletcher freshman forward
Jordan Dixon scored the
Senators first two goals of the
night, but Mandarin managed
to find an equalizer each time.
"We have two defensive
starters out," said Senators
coach Megan Pardue. "Taylor
Hays and Samantha Lance,
who's a huge defensive player
for us, are both injured. So I
had freshmen stepping in those
plaes.
"I don't think I'm upset we
gave up those two goals. I real-
ize that they are just inexperi-
enced."
The Mustangs had some
excellent chances to break the
2-2 deadlock but Senators goal-
keeper Amy Medis ranged far
out of the net to stop a pair of
breakaways midway through
the second half.

breathe a sigh of relief.
"We needed a win over

she said. "We had Fleming

You could hear a pin drop


in the Tallahassee Lincoln
stands as Ted Stachitas raced
93 yards to paydirt early in
the fourth quarter of Friday's
Class 4A state semifinal game
at Gene Cox Stadium.
Hunter Bates said he heard
only silence as he blew down
Lincoln's sidelines midway
through the second quarter on
a 92-yard punt return for a
touchdown.
Sounds of silence in the
state playoffs. Oh, what a feel-
ing.
"Yeah, they were pretty
quiet," said Bates, after he
broke a middle return to the
outside to stake visiting Nease
High to a 21-0 first half lead.
"It was awesome."
The top-ranked Panthers
used a pair of crowd-silencing
TD runs from Stachitas and
two equally-effective returns
from Bates and Mario Butler
to oust host and unranked
Lincoln 35-21 Friday night.

OPINION



Gators rewarded with a shot at national title


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST

R regardless of Florida's chance of
-< winning the national champi-
L . onship of college football against
Ohio State, it's been a great year for
Urban Meyer and the squad he's
trained.
The'Gators showed their class by
knocking off the Arkansas challengers
in the Georgia Dome with the kind of
speed they showed all season coming
out ahead of every opponent but
Auburn.
Critics sneered that the Gators
couldn't beat Southern Cal. They did-
n't hive to - UCLA did it for them. It
proves again that on a given day any-
body can beat-anybody... almost.
Vandy and Kentucky can't beat
Florida, but those two did beat,
Georgia. And poor old Duke, well,
almost anybody, etc.
Football is a strange game. You
never know what to expect which is
all the more reason fans in this town
should have filled-the seats for the .
ACC Championship game Saturday,
instead of leasing Alltel arena looking,
like it was quarantined.
,Georgia Tech is virtuallyai.local
team, drawing talent from the
Jacksonville area every year. One of its
most successful alums is Corky Rogers
%whose Bolles team just won another
Class A state championship.
SAndWake Forest upset Tech with a
style that proved it deserves to be ACC
champion., One might take a step fur-:


their and declare the Demon Deacons
a local team. Quarterback Riley
Skinner, just a freshman who plays.
like a seasoned vet, is a former Bolles
star. The Bulldogs' family runneth
over with local aristocrats.
And Wake's supreme kicker, Sam
Swank, who virtually beat Tech solo
with his three field goals Saturday, is a
Fletcher High School graduate.


Phoio uy ROB DOeAGELO
Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel
attended a recent playoff game at
Nease High School. Tressel will lead
the Buckeyes into January's BCS
championship game against the ,
Florida Gators.


Wake Forest came to town and
turned the ACC title tilt into a family
affair. Wonder why nobody has quot-
ed one of the Demon Deacons' most
famous sons, a golfer (pretty fair in his
day) named Arnold Palmer?
As has been pointed out, Wake
should belong to Jacksonville. The
school won the first Gator Bowl game,
beating South Carolina, and thus gave
the city some fun between seasons it
had never had before. Plus, the game
gave Jacksonville some fine exposure .
and a much-needed business boost on
January 1, 1946. Remember? Some of
us do.
We hope that wherever he is among
the clouds, the old Wake Forest coach,
Douglas Clyde "Peahead" lValker,
knows about what happened 'over the
weekend. In his old, raspy Southern
voice, he'd probably say, "Wellll, we
showed those Tech boys, didn't we?"
, Meanwhile, the Gators showed
those Arkansas boys, too. A
Southeastern Conference title gives
coach Meyer a big boost in only his
second season at the helm. What
about a national championship?.
Florida can win a lot sooner than the
Jaguars can win a Super Bowl. Or even
get there. Or win in the playoffs. Or
even get there again.
Don't sell the Gators short. Florida
has speed, some terrific playmakers
and maybe even destiny on its side.
Maybe they haven't overwhelmed
opponents this season, but the Gators
are a resilient team that simply finds a
wav' to win. .


Pr..:... r, ROB ODE aJ-IELO
University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer removes his headset during
this year's game against Georgia at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Meyer, in
his second season as Gators head coach, led the team to a 12-1 record, a
victory over Arkansas last Saturday in the SEC Championship game and a
berth in the BCS title game Jan. 8 in Glendale, Arizona.


McNabb's season ends with ACL tear


hiladelphia Eagles QB
Donovan McNabb, who
was having an outstand-
ing season, tied with Peyton
Manning for the league lead
with 18 touchdown passes and
second in the league with
2,569 yards passing, tore his
ACL last weekend, and under-
went reconstructive knee
surgery on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old quarterback
suffered a non-contact injury
when he scrambled to the side-
line against the Tennessee
Titans, and his knee just gave
way. McNabb was having an
NMVP-tvpe season but unfortu-
nately will be out of competi-
tion for the remained of the.
season. The All-Pro quarterback,
also suffered some meniscus
damage as well, requiring
removal of a portion of the
inner medial meniscus and
repair of the outer (lateral
meniscus) cartilage.
But, instead of choosing to
have his surgery performed by
the Eagles' own team physi-
cian. McNabb opted to travel
to Birmingham to have the
surgery performed by noted
specialist Dr. Jlames Andrews.
* McNabb's move may seem
surprising, but it has become
somewhat commonplace in
the NTL today. Players more
often are choosing to have
surgery performed by someone
.other than their own team's

e NFL. report the knee feels weak and
amaal loose, and certainly won't sup-
recon- port them in attempts to
y of return to play.
k. In some sports that don't
not require cutting and jumping,
w days such as cycling, roller blading,
is sim- and golf, an athlete often can
llen. continue to play despite the
n ath- loss of the anterior cruciate.
mediate For the others that demand a
pically stable knee such as football'
place ' and basketball, a surgical


reconstruction is usually per-
formed.
The surgery to fix an ACL
tear is referred to as a recon-
struction, for you are actually
replacing the torn ligament. It
is not called a repair for simply
suturing the torn ligament'
together again is not effective.
There are a few options for
graft selection in order to
reconstruct the ACL, each with
its own benefits.
The graft replaces the torn
ligament, and is placed into
tunnels that are drilled into the
bone, and then held there
absorbable screws, until the
bone grows into the tendon
and the tendon reattaches toq
the bone. After surgery, an
extensive physical therapy pro-
gram is used.
The running back position
accounts for 31 percent of all
ACL injuries, the most of any
single position.
Eagles coach Andy Reid put
it in simple terms, stating that
ACL tears are "normally an
eight-month-to-a-year injury-.
. . so [McNabb is) done for the
year."
McNabb, a five time Pro
Bowl selection, has now had
three season-ending injunes in
the last five years, including a
sports hernia last season that
caused him to miss the final
seven games of the season and
a broken leg in 2002, when he
,missed his team's final six
games, but returned in time for.
the playoffs.
