Jax Beach plans road work spending before TIF disappears in 2013


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF I 'RITER
Additional parking along some of the wider
avenues in downtown Jacksonville Beach may be
created if a package of improvements is funded.
That is one of the road projects being consid-
ered by the city of Jacksonville Beach as it plans
what improvements should be done in the down-
town area before tax increment funds (TIF) are no
longer available.
Until 2013, the city captures all of the property
tax money that would go to the county on any
increases in property values since 1983 when the
then-blighted downtown area was declared a


redevelopment area.
Currently, the annual cash flow in the down-
town TIF account is slightly over $4 million. The
district boundaries extend from 13th Avenue
South to 9th Avenue North.
The city's planning director, Steve Lindorff, has
said it would be wise to utilize TIF morues to sub-
sidize a number of upgrades while the funds are
still available.
"This is an idea that came up as we came to the
realization that 2013 is not that far away,"
Lindorff said of using avenues for parking..
An engineering fuhim has been selected to com-
plete a multiphase road improvement project in
the Downtown Redevelopment District in


lacksonville Beach. The city's Community
Redevelopment Agency will review the scope of
the work and proposed cost of $220,70 submit-
ted by GA[ Consultants at 5 p.m. Monday at City
Hall.
Lindorff, Public Works Director Ty Edwards and
City Engineer Martin Martirone selected the firm
based on its approach to the project, according to
Lindorff's recommendation.
CRA members in August authorized city staff to
issue a request for proposals to identify any out-
standing utility and road work to be done in the
Downtown District. The improvements include
modifications to existing on-street parking, new
storm water piping and renovations to the por-


tion of the seawalk between Beach Boulevard and
3rd Avenue North
Lindorff at the Aug. 23 meeting said the stan-
dard upgrades would bring roads in the district up
to date by improving water, wastewater and storm
water mains, beach outfall reversals, pump sta-
tions and reconstructing roadways to add parking.;
"Land at the beach is very expensive to devote
to surface type parking lots ,but we do have a sit-
uation where all of our avenues are 80 feet wide
so there are some opportunities to put some
parking on those," he said. "That's one of the
key things we will be looking at as part of this
study is places where we might be able to
expand the ability to park on the avenues."

Girl's art

Bush's card


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
The artwork of a Beaches Episcopal
School fourth grader soon will be seen
around the state and the country.
Blake Bryant won the Florida Pride
Holiday Card contest, meaning her art-
work, entitled "Together Always Like
Glue and Paper," adorns Gov. Jeb Bush's
holiday card, to be sent to 20,000 of the

Bryant's work was chosen from
among 800 Florida student entries. In
her artist's statement she had written,
"Like all good artwork, my family is
made up of different shapes, sizes, tex-
tures and colors. When my mother,
grandmother, grandfather and I are put
together, we create a great collage."
Bryant's likeness appears on the card
with those of her mother, maternal
grandparents and her pets. She's a
sixth-generation Beaches resident
whose grandparents live in Ponte Vedra
Beach and are both high school teach-
ers, Glenn Johnson at Wolfson High
School and Karen Johnson at Fletcher
High School.

Johnson. "Any parent would be

The 9-year-old Bryant received her
framed artwork Monday at Beaches
Episcopal from Sharon Burnette,
teacher in residence for Gov. Bush and
a past Duval County teacher of the year.
With Columba Bush in the process of
moving the family's residence back to
Miami, she asked Burnette to take her
place and make the presentation, which
also included posters for Bryant's class-
mates.
And although the presentation was
made at Beaches Episcopal, it wasn't a

Bryant had created her card at home,
assisted by her mother.
"I had some of my students entering
this contest," said Johnson, "and when
Blake saw that, she said, 'I want to do
it.' She has a wonderful art program at
her school, so what made it special was
we did it together. I was floored when
she won, competing with students
almost twice her age."

The city of Atlantic Beach
may collect electric bill pay-

here to serve the Beaches.
City Manager Jim Hanson
said Monday he was notified
that the tax collector's office
would be moving from 31
Sailfish Dr. in Atlantic Beach to
1505 Atlantic Blvd. in Neptune
Beach and that JEA would no
longer be a part of that office.

Car burglariesta up in AB



Car burglaries up in AB


FROM ST-AFF
Atlantic Beach has had an
increase in crime over the last
year, significantly due to
increased automobile burgla-
ries, which are considered
felonies, according to Police
Chief David Thompson.
Mayor Don Wolfson
Monday pointed out that
crime in Atlantic Beach has
increased by approximately 27
percent this year and ques-
tioned the cause of this jump.
Thompson explained that
last year's low crime rates were
an aberration and that this
year they have returned to a


more normal range.
He also explained that an
increase in automobile burgla-
ries, which actually are con-
sidered larcenies in uniform
crime reports, have driven up
the crime statistics.
The police department has
put additional officers on
bicycles and in undercover
cars in order to catch more
offenders.
"We're addressing those
things as they come up, but
sometimes it takes a while to
catch the bad guys,"
Thompson told the commis-
sion.

Sandy Golding, President, Beaches Watch, from left, is with Mary Emerson-Smith, who won the
group's Friend of the Beaches award, and Sharon Yow. who nominated Emerson-Smith for the
award The award was presented last week at Beaches Watch's monthly meeting in recognition of
her contributions to the preservation of the quality of life at the Beaches. She was cited for help-
ing to save Howell'Park by involving a hydrologist when proposed solutions to drainage issues
threatened the nature park; enlisting legal counsel that resulted in a reduction in the amount of
development that could take place on Johnston Island; contributing research and education in
connection with the proposed Neptune Beach WalMart; and continuing efforts to preserve Atlantic
Beach marshlands with the Marsh Preservation Society. Golding said.

that the management at Freebird's is cooperative
and that they have not had an ongoing problem.
"We know it will increase the workload, but the
stats in Jacksonville Beach do not indicate an,
overwhelming problem," Thompson said.
He further explained that many of the. areas of
concern are a "wait and see thing," but if there ane
continuous problems, they can be charged crimi-
nail\ with violations.
Jenness also told the commission that they had
never been "busted" for underage di nking.
Mayor Don Wolfson initiated some of th[e more
strict conditions. . "
, He requested that no band buses use Cavalla
Road, a residential street, for entering and exiting
North Beach Center,
He also made it clear that the lighting on the
backside of the building had to be shielded to pre-'


vent invasive light from shining into residential
homes.
The last condition set forth by the commission
was that there'needs to be electrical power for
buses parked behind the' building so that there
would not be noise from generators.
"We want our business to succeed and we're
going to' do whatever it takes to make it work,"
Jenness said in response to the new conditions.
Although the process seemed to require consid-
erable scrutiny, some of the commissioners were
happy with the outcome.
"All in all, I think this is a very, very good
thing," said Commissioner Mike Bomo. e
M arch is the target for opening. The existing

For the contemporary American male: A spine


h, yes, the gift-gi\ing sea-
. son. So what to get for the
contemporary fellow who
has everything? The Man Bag.
The Man Bag is a high-style
satchel -' a purse, though its cre-
ators hate when you call it that.
It's designed to hold the mod-
em man's wallet, keys, sunglass-
es, iPod, cell phone, body spray,
hair gopp, diary and whatever
other junk he totes around
these days.
Why was the Man Bag creat-
ed? According to manbag.com,
three, fellows - Brian, Peter and
Thai - "were tired. of being.
ribbed for scaring their gadgets
around in hand bags. The tor-
ment reached a boiling point
one night when Thai was called
a 'pursey' at a party."
That fellow who insulted him
was lucky Thai didn't yet have a
sturdy Man Bag to smack him
with.
So the three, tormented fel-
lows designed a special bag for.
men (they Wall theirs the MAN-
n-BAG)' and sold it 'through
their Web site. The concept took
off. The Nightline people said
it's the latest trend in men's
fashion. A GQ style editor they
spoke with explained why:
"Once you're out in the work
world, do you really want to
carry a backpack when you're
wearing a suit? At the same
time, most guys don't want to
be..like their dads and carry a
briefcase."
Which is precisely the prob-
lem. Modem guys don't want to
be like theii dads - masculine

Idiot drivers must get their due


T o n many idiots on the
| load these days. Too many
d drivers think they're the
guy on the commercial who
kisses, his wife. goodbye, then
parachutes from his mountain-
top home to his expensive SUV,
below and roars away in a cloud
of dust. Or the bozos in all those
stupid zoom-zoom commer-
cials. You know the type. Can't
stay in one lane. Places to go,
people to annoy. They jump' in.
and out of traffic like kids at a
swimming pool and still end up
just one car length ahead of
where they started.; Yahoo!.
What we need is a better way
to identify and deal with knuck-
lehead drivers. Florida should
implement a new driver's
license classification just for
them. How about a Class I dri-
ver's license? I being for Idiot.
Certain, rights and privileges,
would accrue to a Class I driver's
licensee. With a Class I license,
you'd have the right to drive
below, the posted speed limit at
all times; the right to drive dur-
ing daylight hours only; the
right not to use,the left-hand
lane; the privilege of not tailgat-
ing the driver in front of you
and the privilege of not using
your .high beam switch as a
strategic weapon. Above all,
you'd have the right to have
your Class I license yanked
upon one infraction.
The cop who stops a Class I
licensee would have the author-
ity to stop the next 12 passersby.
Those 12 motorists would be
your jurors. The cop would read
the charges and instruct the
jury to find you guilty, which
they'd cheerfully do because
they want to get to work on
time. Your driving peers, guided
by the wisdom of the arresting

officer, would decide your pun-
ishment and sentence you
immediately. At a minimum,.
you'd have to spend six months
riding a unicycle like the clown
you are. Severe' offenses could
merit lifetime confinement to a.
carpool full of people with
morning breath, gas and boring
stories about their grandkids.
No appeals. ,, : .
Class I Driver's Licenses
would be issued to the follow-
ing kinds of drivers:
* Left hand lane homestead-
ers. You don't win 40 acres and
a mule, pardner, but here's a big
red I for trying, jackass.
* Cases of DWHD (Driving
While Holding Dogs)- especial-
ly that rare breed of idiot who
tries to turn using one arm
while cradling poochie in the
other. You get the scarlet letter
and go to the doghouse with
bars on the windows.
* Drivers who talk on cell
phones and eat at the same
time. A big red I and a bad case
of Montezuma's Revenge,
btiddy. By the way, the next rest
stop's closed.
* The guy who activates a
turn signal just as he turns. Tell


me something I don't already
know, Einstein. A red I and a car
without a passing gear for you.
* Drivers who park backwards
in parking lots and garages.
Wow. Eighteen separate maneu-
vers. to get into that spot while,
you caused a traffic jam in the
garage. Way to go, hero. A
boarding pass for the next red I.
flight and a car that doesn't go
in reverse.
* Drivers who drive with their
parking lights on. Look up the
word park, genius. If you use
only your parking lights, does
that mean you only want to be
seen a little bit? A red-letter day
to you and a car with the park-
ing. light switch perma-glued to
the headlamp switch.
* Drivers who race by when
there's no one behind you, then
cut you off and abruptly turn at
the next street. If you have the
big red I on your DL, this one's
a hanging offense.
* Reading drivers. I. saw a
woman . on 1-95, reading a
Stephen King novel on her
steering wheel. King writes hor-
ror stories. This dim bulb acts
them out. Step up to the podi-
um and get your big red prize,
you loony.
* The driver who thinks he's a
famous race car driver. Got a
flash for you, bubba. Your first
name might .be Bobby, but
unless your last name's Labohte,
here's your red I and a window
decal that says, "Idiot On
Board."
These are just a few. You can
probably think of more. Maybe
we can get the DMV interested.
It'd give them something to do
while they're not answering
their phones.

Memories

help to keep
Christmases

past alive

F following is a selection of
memories .from , my
Christmases past:
'Twas the. night before
Christmasv My late wife Lucy
and I had moved '-to
Jacksonville the previous
September. She had 'never
before been away from her
.New Jersey home and family at
Christmas time, so she was
pretty, homesick. \Ve only had
a few days off from work, and I
suggested we' drive to' Miami
Beach. When we arrived at the
motel; we found presents froni
the management: candy, shav-
ing lotion, perfume, etc. That
raised out spirits considerably,
as did the bottled spirits I'd
brought along.
Afterward, in bathing suits,
we went out to the,beach, but
she declined to join me in the
surf., I emerged quickly from
the surprisingly chilly ocean
singing "Am I Blue?" She
laughed. Her morale was fully
up again.
My spouse used to. tell me
about the Christmas Eve when
she was very young and, hav-
ing been tucked in her second-
floor bed, she broke curfew.
Sneaking to the stairway, she
peeked down at the Christmas
tree. There, she would swear,
,she saw a white-bearded .man
all dressed in red. Scared of.
being caught, she scampered
back to her room. Her dad
always denied involvement.
The plot thickened on a
much-later Christmas morn-
ing. Our son, Eric, is now a for-
mer Marine but then was a tiny
rug roamer learning to march.
He and we went out to check
on the milk and cookies he had
placed on the porch deck for
Santa. To our joint amazement,
the cookies and milk were
gone, and apparently the glass
hadn't been :upset, indicating
to us that the consumer was
human. There were no wild
monkeys or other animals with
hands living in our Jax Beach
neighborhood. So yes,
Virginia, you cn believe.
Another year, an elderly, out-
of-town couple' spent
Christmas Eve with us. By this
time, we had two children, Eric
and Mary, who were in the pre-
teen stage and needed behav-
ior adjustment' occasionally.
The woman had been a profes-
sional violinist and agreed to
perform for us. She was still
good, but age had taken its toll
and some of her, notes were a
bit on the 'sour side. As she
completed the "concert" with
an off-key flourish, one of the
ornaments fell off the
Christmas tree. Our snickering
kids had to be shushed., "
In conclusion: Yuletide fes-
tivities can be fantastic and
funny. Visiting the Bethlehem
grotto where Christ was
allegedly born, I was reminded
that the cute little fella in that
manger made it all possible.

. CAPT. AUGUST WILLIAM ELLIOTT, JR.


Capt. August William Elliott,,
Jr., U.S. Navy (Ret.) and a Pearl
Harbor survivor, known to his
friends as "Bill," died at his
home Dec. 7, 2006, the 65th
anniversary of the Pearl Harbor
attack, in the company of his
wife, Tucker, and his children.
A long-time resident of
Ponte Vedra Beach, Elliott was
born Feb. 3, 1918 in Florence,
S.C. to Bett J Tordan Elliott and
August William Elliott. After
graduating from Florence High
School he completed two years
at The' Citadel in Charleston,
S.C. in 1938, prior. to his
appointment to the U.S. Naval
Academy, where- he received
early, graduation in February
1941 and was commissioned
Ensign.
. Ordered to his first duty sta-
tion; the Destroyer USS Case in
Hawaii, Elliott underwent bap-
tism under fire when the
Pacific Fleet was' attacked in
the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
During the battle the Case was
credited with downing two
Japanese aircraft; Elliott's Naval
Academy roommate, serving
on the USS Oklahoma, was
killed.,
Having served his mandato-.
ry two-year sea service, Elliott
was chosen for Flight School in
Pensacola and received his'
wings as a Naval Aviator in
November 1943, beginning a
distinguished career that car-
ried him through three wars,

crashes and service promotions
to Executive Officer and later
Commanding Officer of two
fighter squadrons. In one of
the crashes, a Navy P2V. that
went down at sea, Elliott was
one of only two survivors res-
cued by submarine: Nine crew-
men were lost.
After deployment as
Squadron Commander to 'the
Korean Theatre aboard the air-
craft carrier Oriskany in 1954,
Elliott served as a member of
the Weapons System,
Evaluation Group in
,Washington, D.C., then was
selected to attend the Naval
War College. Upon graduation
in 1956, he .served as
Operations Officer of the carri-
er Intrepid, followed by a series
of .other senior operational.
assignments: at Pacific Fleet
Headquarters, as Operations
Officer of the'. Seventh Fleet
and, in 1963, as Commanding
Officer of the fleet oiler
Nantahala.
In 1965, while serving as
Assistant Chief of Staff,
Readiness, of the Atlantic Fleet
Naval Air Force Command,
Elliott was ordered to Mallorca,
Spain to take command of the
aircraft carrier Shangri-La,
homeported in NMayport. Thus
began an enduring friendship
with the people of Ponte Vedra
Beach, the family said.
After his time -aboard,
Shangri-La, Elliott was ordered
to WVashington as a Navy mem-


ber on the Staff of the
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff, his last duty station.
Upon retirement in 1969,
Elliott was awarded the Legion
of Merit for his outstanding
service.
That same year he joined the
Aircraft Division of Northrop
Corporation in Washington,
D.C., where he remained for 13
years. It was during this period,
on March 4, 1972, he married
Rabon, Tucker Wilson in
Millwood, Va., according to
Elliott "the smartest decision"
he ever made.
, Aptly named August, which
means "reyered and 'honor-
able," he was both of these,
said his family. During his 30
years in service, Elliott earned a
reputation as an inspirational
leader of extraordinary profes-
sional knowledge and personal
character, family said, adding
he had boundless enthusiasm
for his work and a contagious
optimism that, produced the
highest loyalty and perform-
ance of those who worked with
him.)'
'Both on and off-duty, Elliott
radiated social confidence, a
ready wit and an easy sense of
humor. The family said he was
widely recognized by the oppo-
site sex as a Southern gentle-
man of uncommon charm and
personality. They said his peers
knew him as a fellow officer
who never faltered, never'
failed his responsibility nor

Man arrested after a man

found stabbed to death

under walkover on beach


by LIZA MITCHELL
S T.4FF l'RITER
A 22-year-old Jacksonville
man made a grisly discovery'
during a walk on the beach
early Sunday morning in
J acksonville Beach.
The body of a homeless man
was found with multiple stab
wounds under a walkover at
the 1st Avenue South end
zone.
Police arrested Norton Little,
43, also a transient, and
charged him with murder in
conenction with the incident.
The witness told police that
he and a 17-year-old acquain-
tance were walking on the
beach about 12:38 a.m. when
they noticed a foot sticking
out from beneath the
walkover.
He said he retrieved a take-
out box containing some left
over dinner and a bottle of
water from his truck and pro-
ceeded back to the beach to
offer it to the victim. The
other witness remained in the
truck.
After several unsuccessful
attempts to rouse the victim,
the witness told police he
shook the victim's foot and
was still unable to get a
response. The man said he
returned to the vehicle and
called for help.
Police arriving at the scene
observed the body of a man
identified only as "Calvin"
laying face down in the sand'
beneath the wooden walkover.
Blankets covered the, vic-
tim's body from the waist
down and police noted a "sig-
nificant" amount of blood on
the back of his head.
Little, who had contacted
police in the 100 block of 1st
Street North, told police that
his friend had been. stabbed
and was escorted back to the
scene of the crime.
He originally told police
that he and the victim were
asleep under the walkover
when an unknown white male.
wearing a ski mask and flannel
shirt held a knife to his throat
and bound his hands behind
his back with rope.
Little said the suspect told'
him not to speak and began to
stab his friend several times in
the 'back, neck and' stomach


before fleeing in an unknown
direction.
The defendant said he man-
aged to untie his hands and
"panicked" when he rolled the
victim over and realized the
man was dead, the report said.
According to an arrest
report, Little told police that
he had changed his blue
sweatpants because they were
covered in blood. Police also
observed blood stains on two
jackets and a buttondown
shirt Little was wearing as well
as a spot in the center of his
palm, the report said.
Police noted that there were
no ligature marks visible on
the defendant's wrists consis-
tent with being tied with rope
and there were no signs of a
knife pressed against his
throat.
During further questioning
at police headquarters, Little
said he and the victim were
involved in a sexual relation-
ship for the past couple of
years, the police report said.
Assistant State Attorney
Sheila Loizos advised that
Little be arrested and charged
with murder based on the
blood on Little's clothing and
the "significant amount of,
inconsistencies" with his
story.

American Legion Post 233 Auxi iary


publishes cookbook of Valley recipes


- by KATHY NICOLETTI "
COL UANTST
"A Palm Valley, Florida
Collection of Recipes" is the
title of anew cookbook
published by the American,
Legion Post 233 Auxiliary in
Palm Valley.
The cookbook is dedicated
,to "all of the men and
women veterans who have
served the United States of
America in past wars and to'
those who are presently
serving to allow all of us to'
be free."
Post 233, at 12 Wilderness
Road, is in the heart of Palm
Valle'. The Post is some-
what of a local icon to those
who have been coming.
there for years. .
Palm Valley is undergoing,
so many changes and the,
Post reminds many of the
way old Palm Valley used to
be, Auxiliary member
Cynthia Gaines said.
The Auxiliary is open to,
all women who have hus-
bands, fathers, or grandfa-'
thers who have.served in
the military. The Auxiliary
raises funds for. repairs and
items, needed at the Post, for
other veteran's causes, and
for local charities.


Publishing a cookbook as,
a fundraiser was Gaines'
idea. The cookbook features
a section on Palm Valley
history along with recipes
from people affiliated with
Post 233.
S"Some say the best steak
in town" is at our Friday
night Steak Nights at the
Post, Gaines said. There are
also weekly Wednesday
night dinners and Sunday
morning breakfasts.
Volunteers, either Auxiliary
or Post members, donate the
food and handle the cook-
ing for these events.
"It seemed like a natural
'to compile a cookbook from
all these great cooks," she
said.
"A Palm Valley, Florida

tains recipes for dishes that
have been served at the ,
post, and others that that

Latest giftom menopause is dizziness


My latest gift from:.
menopause has
come.galloping
through my life like an-
armed rifleman.
I'm dizzy.
Before you start laughing
and ask me if I'm blonde (
the answer is yes and you
could be also for 50 bucks a
month) let me tell you that
the last gift I got from
menopause was mild hyper-
tension so the dizziness
stuff kind of makes sense.
But this dizziness has
nothing to do with blood
pressure. It's the hold on to
your stomach, want to fall

teenagers. Dizziness is like
one free beer. It's a little blip
on the radar screen.
, At first, I thought I was
dizzy because I'm working
out so much. I'm talking
about gut-busting, bike-ped-
aling, weight-lifting, stretch-
ing, hopping, leaping,
sweating kinds of workouts
that have me limping to the
car like a prize fighter:
I've stepped up my physi-
cal workouts because my
'back, which decided to rup-


ture one of its own discs,
has finally accepted the fact
that I .will not have surgery,
and it is allowing me to get
better by'working it to
death.
This, of 'course, all hap-
pened as I was beginning
my fir-st leap into
menopause just two years
ago. Two years ago when I
only got dizzy if I lay down
too fast.
So this morning when I
talked to my doctor, who
also happens to be a friend -
well, she used to be a friend
- she had the same hilarious
blonde comments when I
told her this dizziness went'
beyond anything I have
ever known, and I told her I
thought I had vertigo.
Well, of course that is
what it is, she told me.
Menopause-induced verti-
go. Can you believe this?
Just when I thought I was
getting over the hump here
and on the downside of


night sweats and mood
swings and allthe other';
goodies that have been
handed. to me by this lovely
change in life.
Usually, I love change. I
write about it all the time. I
embrace it on a personal .
level. I encourage it in my
children; but this vertigo
business is just too much.
Tonight I am supposed to
go to a two-hour yoga ses-.
sion with my daughter. It"s
the kind of sweat until you
drop yoga class that cleanses
you on the inside and on
the outside.
I am now, two hours
before class, trying to figure
out how I will even be able
to stand in the class, let
alone stand on my head-or
whatever she makes us do.
If worse comes to worse, I
will just sit back in and
sweat in place.
No doubt I'll be dizzy, and
surely, it will be right dur-
ing a hot flash.


Fried turkey: It's



a Southern thing


. by CITY HICKEY
GUEST COLUMNIST
L eave it up to the South
to find a way to incor-
porate a deep fryer into
holiday meals..
Now, turkey has jpiried the
ranks with chicken, green
tomatoes, candy bars, and
pickles as a unique Southern
fried delicacy.
Jacksonville Beach resident
Lindy Shaffer has a date with
his deep fryer, two gallons of
peanut oil and several'birds
every Thanksgiving.
"In the South, we'llfry
shoes and eat them," the
said Jacksonville native who
first experienced fried turkey
while tailgating at the
Daytona International
Speedway.
Shaffer had done crawfish
boils but was unsure of fry-
ing turkeys until he tasted
the moist meat.
"A week later I bought a
pot and said, 'I'm gonna fry
a turkey for Thanksgiving,' "
Shaffer recalled. ,
That was seven years ago,.
and heias been frying
turkeys for, family holiday-
dinners every year since.
"Once you've eaten a fried
turkey, you'll. never eat it
any other way again," he
contends.
Shaffer said he uses a
Cajun-inspired blend of hot.
sauce, a variety of peppers,
garlc and olive oil to inject
added flavor into the turkey.
He said his family has
abandoned the traditional
roasted bird for Shaffer's
fried variety, wbhj thAthe..
,featured centerpiece eve', "
Thanksgiving.
Fried turkey cooks more
quickly than traditional
roasting, and it takes approx-
imately three to five minutes
per pound, according to the.
Web site
www. food network.com.
This year, Shaffer fried
three turkeys for his 28 fami-
ly members in about an hour.
and thirty minutes.
"Every bit got eaten," he
said.


"Not a single slice was
left."
A vat of hot, bubbling oil
and a person who does not
know how to fry safely can
lead to a fire quickly,
Jacksonville Beach Fire
Department Chief Danny
Machurick warns.
Normally, if a frying situa-
tion gets out of control it is
because the oil is too hot or
the pot is too full, Machurick
said.
"People like to have a
party and cook on a wooden
deck,' adds Machurick.
"Overflowing is a prob-
lem."
To prevent the pot from
overflowing, suggests Shaffer,
first measure how much oil
to use by filling the pot with
water and placing the turkey
in it.
Next, take the turkey out
and draw a chalk line on the-
side of the pot to mark the
amount of oil that can fit
once a turkey is in the pot.
The best place to fry is on
a flat outdoor. surface, like a
driveway, according to
Shaffer.
Shaffer watches the ther-
mometer on his fryer to
make sure the oil does not
get hotter than 375 degrees.
Although he does not keep
a fire extinguisher within
reach, he jokes that he
always has a cold beer near-
by to put out a fire. He also
wears hea\y-duty gloves to
protect his hands and arms
when putting the turkey in
the hot oil and pulling it
out.
.....haffex said curious. neigh-
bb7is -tbp by eveiy,5e'ar to.
see what's in the pot. He has
fried turkeys for two neigh-
borhood families.
Shaffer said fried turkey
will be on his family's dinner
table for years to come.
Said the Jacksonville Beach
resident: "It's become as pop-
ular as my grandmother's
dressing."

With the holiday season
rapidly approaching, money
may get tighter than ever.
There is, thankfully, an enor-
mous amount of free content
on the web. Perhaps the Net's
newest game sensation is
Penumbra, an interesting
amalgam of horror adventure,
puzzle presenter and first-per-
son shooter. Coded by a
Swedish native, it's sometimes
hard to imagine exactly what
one should do next. To many,
that'll actually be part of the
attraction!
I Though some of the mon-
sters in Penumbra resemble
the nightmarish critters in
System Shock 2, there's no
connection. Supposedly, the
game was inspired by H.P,
Lovecraft, an early 20th-centu-
ry psychic and writer.
Penumbra (www.penum-
bragame.com), whatever it
was inspired by, is unusual
because just about every
object can - and does - gener-
ate a unique sound. This
works to the player's advan-
tage when his character's
standing motionless, trying to
discern what awaits in, the
cold darkness just beyond ,
vision. Unlike many games,
you're not toting an arsenal of
weapons!
On the other hand, bump-
ing into something, or just
walking along, can and will,
alert your adversaries. It's not
that other games don't use
similar systems, it's the extent
of auditory use and conse-

quences that makes this game
unique. A good set of head-
phones is a necessity! Though
Penumbra is free, it's actually
a demo for Penumbra 2, $25.
It's due for release by the time
you read this. Of course, the
developers are hoping to get
you hooked in advance!
Penumbra's plot, as least in
the demo, is simplistic. You
play as Phillip, who's traveled
to Greenland to obtain infor-
mation about his recently
deceased father. Caught in a
sudden snowstorm, you're
.freezing. Just as you're about
to die, a door appears, one
that leads directly to a myste-
rious underground facility.
Making it through alive is a
challenge!
While at Penumbra's web-
site, check out Fiend. Though
somewhat dated and of the
same genre as Penumbra, it's
still lots of fun, You'll also find

I -'V.4.~rl r


In the latest chapter of the
Beaches rivalry that spans all

tled back from a halftime
deficit to eclipse Nease, 72-66,
in overtime Monday night.
The Senators trailed 27-23
after two quarters, and 44-38
after three before opening

FOOTBALL
Plant 25,
Nease 21
MIAMI -
After his team
went up 21-
RS 72 17 late in the
fourth quarter
RS 66 of Saturday's
Class 4A state
championship game at
Dolphin Stadium, Nease High
football coach Craig Howard
was an emotional wreck.
Time, riot Tampa Plant and
its record-setting quarterback,
Robert Marve, was Howard's
worst enemy down the stretch,
and he knew it.
"You have just scored what
you think may be the go-
ahead touchdown and you're
looking at the clock and it
doesn't seem to be going fast
enough," Howard reflected
Saturday after his top-ranked
team fell to Plant 25-21 in 4A
title game.
"Your stomach is in al knot,
[penalty] flags are flying
around and they [Plant] have
an offense that can score and
enough time to do it.
'"They�'re th' play aWdri ffroi
winning it and we're one play
away from stopping it."
Nease couldn't make that
defining stop.
Marve, who eclipsed three
state passing records during the
game, made a perfect throw to
teammate Derek Winter for the
winning score with 17 seconds
to play to snap Nease's 23-
game winning streak and lift
Plant to its first state title in
school history.

A state football title still



an elusive prize for most


"When they' look back at that 9-1 season, they
don't ask who the nine were." - General Robert
Neyland

By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCL4TE EDITOR
Bill Bates played on three Super Bowl cham-
pionship teams as a member of the Dallas
Cowboys, but he never suited up in a state
championship game during high school.
Frankie Franklin played in a state champi-
onship game as a senior at Sandalwood High,
but his team lost by less
than a touchdown.
Winning a state title in
high school football is,
for the most part, some-
thing that only comes
around once in a life- i
time.
Nease High School, , g1
where Bates and
Franklin coach foot-
ball, won the elusive
gridiron prize in 2005 ,
and played for title
again last Saturday in Miami.
But the top-ranked Panthers (14-
1, Class 4A No. 1) fell to No. 5 Plant High of
Tampa 25-21 in the 4A title game at Dolphin
Stadium.
Nease was bidding to become the first
Jacksonville-area public school team to win
back-to-back state crowns.
It was a loft' goal.
Only one other Jacksonville-area public
school (Raines, 1997) has won a state football
championship since the state playoffs began in
1963.
Winning state in football at the high school
level is a monumental feat. Repeating is even
more extraordinary'.
"Everyone wants what you've got. That's why
it's easier to get there than to stay there," for-
mer Pensacola Escambia High football coach
Dwight Thomas said Saturday after the Nease-


Plant title game.
"Just to go undefeated in a season is amazing
in itself."
Thomas should know. In 1984 and 1985, he
coached back-to-back state title teams at
Escambia, where his teams went 12-2 and 13-1
overall.
His best player, Dallas Cowboy great Emmitt
Smith, set the state record for all-time rushing
yardage.
Last year, Nease, behind the state-record-set-
ting exploits of quarterback Tim Tebow, went
13-2 and claimed its first state crown.
This season, the Panthers of Tampa Plant sup-
planted Nease as the 4A champion
Behind the equally impressive
* . ~ arm of quarterback
Robert Marvne, who
broke two of Tebow's
4. state benchmarks.
S r Plant finished
I undefeated this sea-
son, becoming the
s o first Tampa-area
Ma school, public or pri-
o vate, to win a state
S""' grid title since 1969.
J Altamonte Springs
Lake Brantley (13-2) lost
to perennial power Miami
Northwestern 34-14 in the Class 6A state final
Saturday. The Patriots were hoping to become
only the third Orlando-area team to win state.
It was Northwestern's third state crown and
the Greater Miami area's 16th overall.
Why do some sections of the state win more
state titles in football than others?
Density of population is one reason why
Miami schools triumph so often. One-school
towns in the Panhandle and in many rural sec-
tions of the state dominate because talent is not
spread out such as in the metro areas of
Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa.
Nease may not have repeated as the state
champion this 'ear, but it wasn't for lack of try-

___FISHING ..



Cold wind impacts the local fishing scene

OPINION



Jaguars run all over Colts


- literally


It was suggested to a couple
of Jaguars back in preseason
that they might finish as
high as third in the AFC South
this year.
"Third!?" Little John
Henderson cried. "Who's
gonna stop us? We're gonna go
all the way. We've got too
much talent."
Little John, who weighs in at
about a ton like his namesake
in Robin Hood folklore, was,
correct about the talent, but
when it,was pointed out that.
the Colts had a nasty habit of
beating just about everybody,
he scoffed again. ,
"The Colts!? When you play
them right, they're no better
than anybody else," said the
towering lineman. "They can
be had."
Henderson was right but the
Jaguars had to wait for months
to prove it. Sunday afternoon
the Jaguars' predictions finally
came true.'
But to show that the Colts
could be reduced to the
denominator of of a mortal
team, the Jaguars had to have
one of their games when
they're not mortal. The team
that hogtied the once.feared
Indianapolis boys and, their
bigger-than-life quarterback
Pevton Manning, was not the
Jack Del Rio team that stag-
gered like a drinking horse in.

,Buffalo. The team on display
Sunday was the one Wayne
Weaver thought he had pur-
chased a long time ago only to
find it jumping in his face and
. screeching, "April Fool!"
The in-and-out team, up-
and-down all season, must
have followed their leader, Del.
Rio. The coach had ducked
behind a door Sunday and
came out what appeared to be
a business suit - one that was
hiding a Superman costume.
The Jags came out decked in
black, in case they were asked
to be pall bearers for the Colts.:
Good thinking. '
This 44-17 smashing was a
result of astounding rushing-
375 yards net - and a defense,
that would have frightened
King. Kong. For once, the quar-
terback didn't matter. David
SGarrard, the "fill-in" did okay,

but it didn't matter. Jonathan
Quinn could have lined up
behind center and Jacksonville
still would have won.
Thanks to the newfound
combo of Fred Taylor and
Maurice Jones-Drew, the *
Jaguars ditched the Air Force
for the Infantry and blew their
old adversary almost out of
Alltel Stadium.
After intermission, Maurice
took the kickoff and scooted 93
yards for a score. The Colts:
found out that trying to stop
Maurice J-D is like chasing a
wet bar of soap. The rookie
scooted all over all day. At
birth, Mo Jo probably jumped
off the table and scooted out of
the maternity, ward in his
birthday suit, not wasting any
time learning how to walk.
In the locker room, Jones-
Drew was asked why lie hadn't
'warned a friend, who was tak-
ing a break, that such a perfor-
mance was coming. "I told you
to watch us all the time," he
laughed and scooted off to the
showelis.
And good old Fred, 131
yards to Mo Jobs 166, is far
from finished.
, .But can they defeat the,
Titans, their old foe in that
snakepit?
"We're gonna.keep it going."
Fred said and somehow you
believe him. Even if not, fans
can still be comforted by the
great winio er the Colts.

ing. The Panthers came within
three seconds of raising the
state championship trophy for
the second year in a row.
"What gets lost in the shuffle
is that we lost the champi-
onship game after a brilliant
performance," Nease head
coach Craig Howard said
Saturday.
"Last year when we played
in this game, we thought it was
a once-in-a-lifetime opportuni-
S, tv because that's what tradi-
tionally happens unless you're
a private school power.
"In this tournament, there is
only one team that leaves- ,
happy and .that's the .chanmpi-..
on. Our kids were crying when
they were getting the spcond-
place trophy when nobody else
is playing for it but them. So
many teams in the state were
done playing football a month
ago."
Nease defensive coordinator
Danny Cowgill was an assis-
tant coach at St. Augustine
High in 2001 when the Yellow
Jackets lost in the 3A state title
S. gam e. ,. .> .. . :,
He said he feels fortunate to
have coached in three champi-
onship games in the past five
years.
"We tell the kids all the time:
that they can't take this for
granted. It's not like you are
guaranteed this every year,"
Cowgill said Saturday after his
defense held Plant to its sec-
ond-lowest points total for the


season. .
"To win state you have to
have good players, a good plan
and you have to stay healthy.
And it takes a little luck along
the way."
In 1995 when Sandalwhvood
went 14-0 en route to the 6A
state championship game,
Franklin, the state player of the,
year, felt his teammates could-
n't be beaten. They lost 12-7.
"I couldn't believe that we
lost," Franklin, who went on to.
play college football at Indiana
University, recalled Saturday at
Dolphin Stadium.
"It was like what I'm feeling
now with Nease. With the
tea e hljd. I thoughtovtwe.

Bates has three Super Bowl
rings, but he still feels an
emptiness when he thinks


about his high school football
career in Tennessee.
An all-state performer in
1978 at Knoxville's Farragut
High, Bates was a senior when
the Admirals lost a 28-27 heart-
breaker to Red Bank in the
Class 3A state playoffs.
"That's still the best football
season in Fanagut's history,"
Bates, who has two sons on the
Nease's football team, recalled
as he waited for the Panthers
buses to pull out of Miami.
,In the state record books, it
will go down as Plant 25,
Nease 21, but the game was a
lot closer than the score indi-
cates. V , ' ',;

won't ask who the 14 were.

Start 2007 with a sound game plan

from the Hughes Financial Group


Whether you're already
retired or seriously planning for
retirement, the team of finan-
cial service professionals at the
Hughes Financial Group in
Jacksonville Beach has valuable
knowledge they'd like to share
with you. They also understand
the financial challenges you -
as a retiree or retiree wannabe
- might face as you chart your
financial course and develop a
game plan for your future.
As an independent and local-
ly owned firm, the team at the
Hughes Financial Group stands ....
ready to help you make. intelli- '.". .
gent and informed decisions
about your finances. The driv-
ing force behind the team is
father Neil Hughes, a Raymond
James Financial Planner and .
Investment .Advisor
Representative -- and a gradu-
ate of the United States Military ""
Academy, West Point.
Daniel "Dan" Hughes; a
Virginia Tech business graduate,
is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL
PLANNERM professional and With more than 60 years o
Chartered : Financial at the Hughes Financial Gr
Consultant. Dwayne Hughes, a tune your financial game p
business finance graduate of the tune your financial games and
University of North Florida, is a Hughes, Dan Hughes and
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLAN-
NER�T professional, and Jason Hughes is a Raymond James
Financial Planner and Investment Advisor Representative
and finance graduate of the University of Georgia.
The Hughes team has a combined 67 years of financial
and investment experience.
"Financial planning goes beyond advice on investments,"
said Neil. "It's the development and implementation of an
integrated and coordinated plan for achieving your overall
goals ahd dreams through a mixture of wealth accumula-
tion, risk management and insurance, retirement and dis-
tribution planning, tax planning, estate planning and - for
business owners and execs - business planning."
When helping clients design a personalized financial
plan, they get down to the basics. "Basically, people invest
for two reasons - they're already in retirement and want
money now or they're seriously planning for retirement and
want money later," Neil said. "So in reality that includes
almost everybody - and if they're not planning for retire-
ment, they should be!"
What's one of the biggest mistakes investors make?
Making investment decisions based on emotion, rather
than facts, Neil said. "It's difficult not to let emotions inter-
fere, so you have to have a disciplined approach that will
allow you to make investment decisions based on supply
and demand rather than eniotion," he',said.'"That's where
most individuals and professionals get in trouble - not
being able to separate decision-making from the emotion."
Another challenge investors face in today's financial
arena is not a lack of, but rather an abundance of informa-
tion, according to Dan Hughes. "A lot of people are afraid to
make moves that they think are suitable investment moves
because they actually have too much information, and too
much information can add to the complexity of making a
sound decision," he said. Neil has a name for this too-much-
info mode: Paralysis by analysis.
To help their clients avoid the pitfalls of emotion-based
decision-making, round-the-clock numbers-watching and
paralysis by analysis, they use a different strategy, one
which helps benefit their clients in the long run, according

to Dan. "We help our clients avoid yet another big mistake
that trips up many investors - not knowing which side of
the market to be on at any given time," he said.
"For example, we need to ask the question - should we
be in a wealth-accumulation mode or in a wealth-preserva-
tion mode?" Dan said, "And this is not just a function of
novice investors not knowing, because a lot of professional
investors don't know either."
To help answer this question, they use an important tool.
"We use technical analysis, which is not paralysis by analy-
sis but something most of us learned in Econ 101 in college
or high school - supply and demand," Dan said. "If more
people are looking to buy, the price usually goes up, and we
have different gauges to determine if that's occurring in the
market as a whole."
"Somewhere you have to separate what's important from
what's not important," added Neil. "The use of technical
analysis helps us do that and at the same time remove emo-
tions from those decisions."
The concept is not as complex as it sounds. Dan compares
it to football. "It's a matter of knowing whether you're on
defense or offense," he said. "If you're on offense, you're
trying to score, and if you're on defense you're trying to
protect the score you already have and hopefully get the
ball back and run offensive plays again to increase your
score."
If the Hughes Financial Group's game plan rings a bell for
you during this holiday season, give Neil, Dan, Dwayne or
Jason a call today. "It's never too late and it's never too early
to start your financial game plan," Neil said.
Hughes Financial Group, Inc., An Independent Firm, is
located at 131 Second Ave. N., Suite 100, in Jacksonville
Beach - one block east of the intersection of North Third
Street and Second Avenue North. Securities and Investment
Advisory Services are offered through Raymond James

Tt N the'most exciting time
of the year - but also the
busiest. How can you host
a spectacular holiday get-
together and still have time to
enjoy your guests?
- Keep it simple. Build your
refreshments around two pop-
ular and reliable party
favorites, wine and cheese.
Make up easy hors d'oeuvres
and plate them with flair.
Start with a no-fuss cheese
tray, and build your menu
around it. Imported cheeses
from Ireland, widely available
from the supermarket, add
affordable elegance.
To accompany your menu,
serve guests several different
wine varietals to satisfy every
taste. Look for easy-drinking
wines that offer great quality '
and value, such as those com-
ing from Australia.

Try These
Additional Tips
for Fabulous,
No-Fail Holiday
Gatherings


The Food
* A cheese tray is simple to
prepare and always welcome.
Arrange a selection of delec-
table cheeses, such as
Kerrygold's Dubliner, Aged
Cheddar, Blarney Castle and
Swiss on a large platter or
wooden board. Serve with a
scattering of toasted nuts,
fruits and a basket of ,-
baguettes or crackers.
* You don't have to make an
extra trip to a specialty cheese
store for your party fare.
Imported Kerrygold cheeses
and butter are available locally
at many leading supermarkets.,
All milk used in these dairy
products comes from grass-fed
cows roaming freely on small.
failyfamily farms in Ireland; the
milk is crafted into cheeses
and butter using centuries-old
processes.
* To purchase cheese for a
party, estimate about 4 ounces
per guest. Always serve cheese
at room temperature for best
texture and flavor.
* For more scrumptious hol-
iday recipes, visit www.kerry-
gold.com/usa .
The Wine
* Save time and avoid the
stress of fumbling with' a
corkscrew by choosing wines-
with screw cap closures, such
as Wolf Blass Yellow Label.
Riesling and Shiraz. In addi-
tion to their convenience,
these wines are extremely
food friendly and pair well


with a wide ran ke'bf-holi

benefit of capturing the

spoilage from a faulty co
