STAFF IW'RITER
A series of projects designed
to improve traffic flow in south
Jacksonville Beach %\ill be done
one yeai sooner, transportation
officials confirmed Monday.
Mike Goldman of the Florida
Department of Transportation
said a project to synchronize
traffic signals between 9th
Avenue North and Marsh
Landing Parkway will be com-
pleted in 2007/08 rather in the
originally scheduled 2008/09
planning year.
The $1.9 million signaliza-
tion project would also tie in to
plans to resurface that portion
of A1A. The cost to repave the
2.4 mile section of the state-
owed roadway is $5.1 million.
"It would make more sense
from a construction standpoint


Penman Road study
is planned, See A-3
as well as a motorist standpoint
to have all of this done at
once," Goldman said
City Manager George Forbes
Monday said he is also putting
some added pressure on the
FDOT to install a traffic signal
at 16th Avenue South and
Osceola Avenue in 2007.
"We would like to get that
area done right away," he said.
"We'd like the whole project
moved up if possible."
In May, 2005, some members
of the Jacksonville Beach City
Council expressed concern that
the 2008-09 time frame origi-
nally slated for the AlA signal
work was "too far back."

JB to create vision

for downtown area
Public hearings will be planned


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF It'RITER
Years of improvements
turned the once-blighted area
of downtown Jacksonville
Beach into a commercial dis-
trict booming with entertain-
ment, dining and shopping.
Yet, city officials are still
looking ahead to changes that
could keep the downtown area
moving forward.
"The council wants to look at
where to go from here," City
Manager George Forbes said
Tuesday. "Let's not forget that
10 years ago the downtown
area was run down with vacant
buddings and a horrible look.
Today it's a vibrant downtown
with parking, an entertainment
district and restaurants."
The Downtown Revisioning
Project will continue the revi-
talization of the Central
Business District and
Downtown Redevelopment
District.
Forbes said a series of public
meetings will be held in the

Wal-Mart

decision

due soon
FROM STAFF
A recommendation by the
Special Magistrate regarding
the mediation between the
city of Neptune Beach and the
property owners where a Wal-
Mart was proposed will be
published by Dec. 26, accord-
ing to city attorney Chris
White. Originally a decision
was expected by Dec. 22.
Both sides have submitted
suggestions for the final rec-
ommendation as requested by
the Special Magistrate.
Although both sides have
written their suggestions to
the Special Magistrate, he will
still make his own recommen-
dation.
Each side will have 45 days
to respond once it has been
published.


first quarter of .2007 to deter-
mine "what do we need to do
now?"
"We've come a long way and
we've done a great job but we
are never done," he said. "We
are looking at what do we want
to do in the next five to 10
years."
As new buildings are con-
structed and existing structures
are rebuilt, Forbes said develop-
ing architectural standards is
just one example of how city
officials could maintain the
look of the downtown area.
He said promoting mLxed-
use developments could also
provide a diverse blend of resi-
dential and commercial proj-
ects with upper level parking to
"make sure everything fits."
Forbes said the revisioning
project will also "dovetail nice-
ly" with a package of planned
infrastructure improvements in
the Downtown Redevelopment
District.

The new timer system will count down from

City officials have also worked for years to
push the alignment of the light at Ponte Vedra

ect, Forbes said, is online for 2008.
Forbes said the FDOT has worked in tandem
with the city to develop a time table for con-

"They have been very cooperative," he said.
"We are all working very hard to get this done.
This is a very important and very positive proj-

"I'm happy to see it get going."

Jacksonville Beach officials
will be looking to the commu-
nity early next year to help
identify ways to improve
Penman Road.
City Manager. George Forbes
Tuesday said a series of public'
meetings will begin next
month to develop an improve-
ment plan without widening
the two-lane county road.
"We've talked to county staff
for a while about the improve-
ments we want along Penman
Road," he said. "The problem is
whenever they ask us what
exactly we want, I can't ade-
quately answer that question."
The City Council Monday
authorized the urban design
firm of Glatting Jackson to
draft a .conceptual right of way
design at a cost not to exceed
$19,500 for the portion of
Penman Road from. Beach
Boulevard to Seagate Avenue.
"I've discussed this matter
several times with Jacksonmille
officials and the problem
always starts with the question
'what do we want to do?'"
Foibes said.
"I believe the best way to,
answer this question would be
to.hire an urban design firm to"
review this roadway and with
public input, design a concept
plan. We could then take the
concept plan rto Jacksonville
and request that they coriplete
the final design and construc-
tion." ..
Forbes saidthe design team
will work with the citizens and
the city. officials to come up
with a plan to improve traffic,
Pedestrian and bicycle safety
and aesthetics in the project
area.
S"I just, want to say thank
you. One of my pet peeves
when I was ru n ni ng for council
was to get the Penman Road
deal started," newly elected
Councilman Tom Taylor said.

HearingS on
sidewaTks set

FROMf STAFF
A public hearing will be held
in the future to allow Atlantic
B3eachi res'idehts'to voice their
cohceiris about propdic.d side-
walk construction that would'
interfere with some residents'
driveways.
' Portions of the.. sidewalk
along Rose and Orchid Street
have an excessive: cross-slope,
according to a report from
Public Works Director Rickl
Carper, and many citizens have
told the commission that
something needs to be done to
correct the problem.
The sidewalk was built to
meet the slope of the land and
follows its contours, which is
Why there is a slope of more
than 2 percent in some areas,
according to City Manager Jim
Ha n son, who further explained
that this is not a "rich, side of
town versus poor side of town
thing."
Carper provided a list of
other sidewalks in the area that
also have an excessive cross-
slope.
To fix the sidewalk would
require driveway reconstruc-,
tion and would affect seven or
eight residential houses, he
said.
The commission suggested a
public hearing so that residents
would be aware of the amount
of construction involved and
how it will affect them. A date
will be set'for the hearing.

'This takes.care of a huge prob-

Once complete, traffic will
be able to directly cross Beach
Boulevard at a signalized inter-
section. The existing signal at

Forbes said the widening of

Letters to the editor:

Answers lacking for west AB


To the editor:
I want to congratulate Ms.
Bischbf for writing a letter to
the editor. She raised lots of
issues which needs to be cor-
rected. Unfortunately, writing a
letter to the editor will not be
effective.
We live in a divided city,
where east of Seminole Road get
all the improvements -and west
of Seminole Road is ignored.
, Ms Bischof is right, there is
only one voice the Commission
hears and it comes from Mr.
[Michael] Hoffman. Residents
from west of Seminole Road do,
not attend Commission meet-
ings. That is why Ms. Bischof
thinks that the "median proj-
ect" will take care of, the acci-
dent problems on Mayport
Road.
If you have attended the pres-
entation(s) on the median proj-
ect, then you would know, that
the inside lanes on both sides of
the median was, reduced to, 10
Feet, 5 inches in order to comply
with the FDOT requirement for
a median to allow palm trees on
S the median.
Those inside lanes are .the
"fast" lanes and also next to the
waiting lanes for vehicles mak-
ing a left turn. At three (3) meet-.
S . ings I did not receive an answer
for the lengths of those turning


lanes. The way the traffic lights
will be synchronized, I don't
believe we will be able to stack
enough cars in those turning
lanes.
Another problem is the
paving between the flowers and
trees on the medians. That
paving will be an invitation for
pedestrians and bicyclists to
save walking and cross where
the paving is located.
'It is like the "improved" inter-
section by City Hall. Squeezed
together, the stop signs are
improperly located and contus-
ing who should have the right
away. . .
In closing, I, would like to'
comment on the Comrfiittee on
District., representation. Their
task should be how to imple-
ment the switch to District
Representation.
It should be simple: Finish the
job by the end of January 2007,
so it can be put-on the Spring

Too many rules hurt citizens


To the editor:
The Neptune Beach City
Council is considering further
encroachment on property
owners rights. First it was taking
the tree trimming/cutting rights
from home owners, now it's
attempting to regulate the
building of docks/walkways by
home owners on their property.'
The building of docks is already
regulated by The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, the U.S.Army Corps
of Engineers and the St. Johns
River Water Management
District. A permit is required.
Further, Riparian Water
Rights grant property owners
,whose property is adjacent to a
body of %water the right to make
'reasonable use of it....including
the right to wharf out to a point
of na'igability; the nght to erect
structures such as docks, piers,
and boat lifts; and the right to
use the water for domestic pur-
poses. Riparian Rights also
depend upon "reasonable use"
as it relates to other riparian
owners to ensure that the rights
of one riparian owner are
weighed fairly and equitably
with rights of adjacent riparian
owners.
The fear of a marina scare tac-
tic was stated by a councilman.
That smoke screen won't work
as marinas are also regulated by
Federal and State laws. Now fear
of blocking the- scenic view'of
the waterway from the Kings
Road Bridge is being used. All
docks/walk'ways to the east of
the bridge are at the level of the
top of the marsh grass and
blend in favorably with the'
marsh environment. People do
not stop on Kings Road to view
the scenic marsh,..... it is not a
tourist attraction, and....... it
would be obstructing traffic
which of course is against the
Slaw. What is common in other
Florida watertiont property sites
should be no different in


Neptune Beach.
WHAT IS AN OBSTRUCTION
TO THE VIEW OF THE MARSH
ENVIRONMENT ARE THE'
NUMEROUS "NO PARKING"
SIGNS, cluttering both sides of-
Kings Road near the bridge, very
tacky and trashy looking for the
environmentally sensitive peo-
ple and others. There are other
ways to prevent parking that are
less obtrusive.
In discussing this with several
council members all they would
say was "something had to be
done", but totally clueless of
"what" had to be done
and"why", other than scenic
view which is a very shallow
and weak excuse cqnsideririg
existing federal and s regul-
tions and1 the blend4i Mn with
the marsh environment of
docks/walkways already in,
place. Looks like a big power
play for the Neptune Beach gov-
ernment power brokers....
Control, Control, Control. The
Neptune Beach City Attorney is
expected to be involved in these
matters and provide guidance to
the council, not a rubberstamp.
If the city wants to require a
"Permit" for" construction....
fine,... just don't go beyond
what is already required by fed-
eral and state laws. This permit
could be additional income for
the city and picked up at City
Hall. Citizens should not be
required to go before the coun-
cil to get permission to do some-
thing that is their constitutional-
and legal right.
Lawyer fees associated, with
citizens to ensure these rights
should be paid for/reimbursed
by the city.
Government for. the 'people
and by the people...... The courn-
cil is elected by the citizens, paid
by the citizens, and should work
FOR the citizens.

Best gifts at Christmas are not


what you ask Santa to bring


I feel bad for most kids
these days. Every
Christmas, they get way
too much stuff when memo--
ries are all they want.
I'm 44 and barely remember
most of the gifts I got for
Christmas as a kid. I do
remember the extraordinary
blessings I was given.
I remember an unusually
warm December when I was
6. Dozens of kids were out in
the street playing, while their
dads hung Christmas. lights. I
was looking out the Wvindow
when my father, the Big Guy,'
pulled into the driveway, a
tree strapped to the roof of
our 1970 Plymouth Fury.
He opened the garage door
and walked inside. He came
out carrying a large Christmas
tree platform he'd kept.
strapped to the garage wall.
The Big Guy liked his plat-
forms sturdy, and he built
ours from a shettpft ,4-foot-

incnh-y-6-inch studs. It was
heavy as lead, but he made it
look light as a feather.
The Big Guy was only 34
then, his hair black as coal.
He was youthful and powerful
and madly in love with my
mother. They had four 'chil-
dren with two more yet to
come. And as he toiled to get
the tree straight on the plat-
form, he had no idea his work
would elicit powerful memo-
ries in his son 40 years later.
For years, our Christmas
Eve ritual was the same. Our
next-door neighbors, the
Kriegers, visited. Tremendous
festivity filled the air. The
party lasted two or three
hours before we were carted
off to. bed.
The Big Guy would stack
the old stereo console in the
dining room with every
Christmas record we had -

even the most hyper kid
could stay awake when the
needle danced over that

mig. Id ump out of my bed~
and run around waking my
sisters. We'd rush down to the
living room. As we opened
our gifts, our dog Jingles
dived into the piles of wrap-
ping paper..
And when we were done
swapping gifts with each
other, we gave our gifts. to
Jingles - six hunks of
rawhide. Her tail went wild
with excitement, and she'd,
spend the rest of the day
chewing it in total content-,
ment.
-The Big Guy always made a
massive , breakfast .on
Christmas morning - eggs,
bacon, ham, pancakes, French
toast and English muffins
smattered with jelly. We'd sit
around laughing and talking
an hour or more.
Until the Big Guy began
getting ants)y.


"You kids. have to get ready
for Mass or ,we'll end up
standing in the aisles like we
did last.year," he'd say.
All the stragglers went to
church on Christmas, you see
- even the atheists must have
- because we regulars had to
get there extra earl\ to claim
our usual seats. But when you,
have five sisters, each sport-
ing the "Farrah Fawcett" big
hair of the era, and ONE full
bathroom, it took us HOURS
to get ready. ,
Their big hair prompted the
Big' Guy's second major
Christmas morning concern:
"For God's' sakes, don't run.
your blow driers at the same
time or you'll burn the house,
down!"
But every Christmas morn-
ing my sisters ran their hair
driers at the same time - they
didn't burn the house down,
but, did blow several fuses.

NMy sisters and I are in our
30s and 40s now and we
laugh about these memories.
The memories, in fact, are all
we , really wanted for
.Christmas, but we were too
young to know it then.
I' know it now. Gifts don't
,mean much, but people ,do

love for each other does. For

It's time to celebrate our many

differences and religious freedoms


I had lunch with Billy'
Emmett the other day. Hadn't
seen him but once since he
and I graduated from high
school in 1958. That, you
know, was back when folks
were more tolerant of each
other's religious beliefs.
Or were they?
Sure, we had devotionals
during homeroom, and some-
body usually was called on to
pray. In our class, it was often
Billy Emmett, now the Rev.
Billy Emmett, retired after a
long career in the ministry.
Everybody knew then that
Billy would be a preacher. 'I
As you might have expected,
our school was all white, near-
ly all Protestant and mostly
Baptists and Methodists. If we
had a kid of the Jewish faith,
none of us knew who he was. I
remember just one Catholic
student. There was no cream at
the top of our milk. We were
homogeneous'to a fault.
So no one objected when
Mrs. Rogers read the third
chapter of Ecclesiastes for the
27th time, even though we all
suspected she had an ulterior
motive as she raised her voice
just a little when she said, "a
time to keep silence and a time
to speak." And no one objected
when Billy prayed "in Christ's
name."
But then ,,schools and the


PHIL HUDGINS
COLUMNIST
nation changed and became
more diverse, and some people
objected, saying the state must
not sanction a particular reli-
gion in public schools. The
U.S. Supreme Court outlawed
public school-sponsored
prayer, and those regular devo-
tionals, as we knew them,
faded away.
Most people, I think, under-
stood the court's ruling. Later,
as a parent, I thought of it this
way: It is important that the
teachers or school officials
directing devotionals in school
embrace pretty much the same
faith my family and I embrace.
But I shouldn't depend on
them to teach our daughters
about God anyway. That was
my job - and the church's.
But then, as human beings
are wont to do, we overreacted.


School officials, fearing they
might violate the law, started
editing speeches of valedictori-
ans, making sure they 'didn't
,mention God or some other
deity. Some tried to prohibit
religious clubs' 'meeting, on
school grounds. A 'second-,
grader in New Jersey was told
she couldn't sing "Awesome
God" in an after-school talent
show because the song was
inappropriate for a school-run
event.
Unfortunately, . said Nat
Hentoff, an authority on the
First Amendment, many prin-
cipals and school boards don't
know the law. Under the
amendment's Free Exercise
Clause, he said in an opinion
piece in USA Today, "a student
can express his or her personal
religious beliefs in an assign-
ment or as a valedictorian."
And if a second-grader herself
chooses to , sing "Awesome
God," let her.
The Supreme Court is not
our enemy. In many cases, as
Pogo said, we are our own
enemy. We dwell on what we
can't do instead of what we
can do. We have great freedom
in this country, fellow citizens.
Surely there's enough to
accommodate different faiths.
So, as a Christian, I'd like to
wish you God's blessings and.
Merry Christmas.

'Twas the

'Night Before
Christmas in

Bubba's World

S aturday night I got a call
from my old buddy, Bubba
Jr., in Palatkey, as he calls
it. "Hoyle, I've re- written the
words to 'Twas: the- Night
before Christmas. There's lots
of stuff in that original version
that folks around these parts
can't relate to!"
Bubba went on to. tell me
that he thought the classic
written' by , Clement Clark
Moore was intended for
Yankees. He gave as an exam-
ple the line about the "breast
of the new fallen snow!" He
also thought that "Mama wear-
ing a kerchief" was degrading'
to real women who slept in
their curlers.
Suddenly I heard Bubba's
wife, Shirley . Q, yell,
"Somebodv's'done been, to the
Wal-Mart!"
Bubba hollered, "Shirley Q,
;y'all go hold your choir prac-
tice at the other end. of the
trailer! I'm on the dawgone
phone here! Sorry Hoyle,
they're going Carolin' tonight
and they were trying to get
that Redneck 12 days of
Christmas song down! Some
of the neighbors last year com-
plained that they never sang
anything but Grandma got run
over by a Reindeer."
Patiently I got my friend
back on subject, "Other than
snow ahd women who don't
wear curlers to bed, is their
anything else that folks in
Palatka don't .identify with?" ,
"Ho9ld .the phone 1.lHole.
iS~rlley , tell your cousin
Thelma it's supposed to be 9
years probation and 8 table
dancers, she's got it backwards.
Now back to that Night before
* Christmas thing Hoyle. AllI
that stuff about Santy Clause
coming down the chimney is
just un-Floridian. I covered
that early in my better shorter
version!"
Old Bubba cleared his throat
and began to recite, "Twas the
night before Christmas and all
through the double wide, not a
creature was stirring 'cept my
hunting" dog Clyde. He was
guardian' 'the stockings the
younguns had hung with mag-
nets on the Trigidaire, in hopes
that old Santy Clause soon
would be' there!"
"Mama's hair was in curlers
with an attractive net on,
when I heard a racket out front
goin' on. It was, an elf, jolly
was he, in what 'looked like a
flying Mustang GT. These rein-
deer were pulling and making
it glide, with NASCAR numbers
all on their side!"
"Santy Clause called them all
by name. On Kyle and Jeff, hey
Ryanyou're looking' great. And
your Daddy would sure be,
proud of you number 8! Now
dash away Kurt and the other
Dale too. And y'all folks in the
trailer, Merry Christmas, this
poem is through!"
Bubba. then said a quick
goodbye, so he could go watch
his wife and her cousin and
"them" go Carolin'. You know
that would never work with
Santa and NASCAR reindeer.
All they'd know how to .do was
steer to the left. Think about
it! Merry Christmas y'all, this
column is through!

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Read this monthly feature for your own Home Improvement Projects.


Woodstove
With home heating bills smoldering
through the roof, it's no wonder that many:
homeowners are contemplating a wood
burning stove to help handle some or all of
their home heating needs. Firewood' is
abundant and inexpensive in many parts
of the country, and technological advance-
merts have made woodstoves and other
wood burning appliances safer and more
efficient than ever.
Unfortunately, wood burning appliances'
still pose a danger if common sense safety-
precautions are ignored. Here's a quick look
at some key steps you can take to reduce'
the likelihood of a fire.
Find A Professional Installer
Few homeowners have the technical
"know-how" to properly install a wood-
stove, fireplace insert or other wood burn-
ing anoliance. and fewer still understand all


ia


Safety Tips
off the pertinent building code require-
ments in their community. For example,
clearances between the wood burning
appliance, the venting system and any
combustible materials above, below or
beside the appliance are critical. What's
more, installation errors in a wood burning
appliance rarely prevent it from "working."
This can all too easily leave a homeowner
with a false sense of securit'y-until it's too
late.'
Learn How To Burn
Before the installer leaves, ask him or her
to show you how to use your wood burner.
Include all family members in the discus-
sion, if possible, and use this opportunity
to set strict rules about who is pernmtted to
operate the new appliance. Much of What
you learn will be specific to the make and
model of the wood burning appliance you
buy. Other safety tips will be more general
in nature, but are every bit as important:
* Keep a properly maintained fire extin'-
guisher nearby at all times.
* Move combustible items as far away
from the wood burner as possible.
* Use only clean paper, newsprint and
dry kindling to start a fire. Never use an
accelerant like gasoline, kerosene or lighter
flwd.
* Bum seasoned wood only. Wet or green
logs may cause a combustible residue to
build up inside your chimney.
* Never burn trash or garbage in your
wood burner.
* Close the door of your wood burning
appliance as soon as it's lit and immediate-
ly after loading new logs.
Talk to your. local fire department. They
may be able to offer additional information
about burning wood safely, and they may
.be able to, provide additional information
about local ordinances that affect when
you can use your wood burner.
Follow Maintenance Guidelines
Make sure you read and follow the main-
tenance guidelines provided with your
wood burning appliance to help keep it
working properly. Many manufacturers rec-
ommend an annual inspection, and your
installer can often perform this service or
recommend an inspector. Remove ashes
regularly, and have your chimney inspect-
ed and cleaned each year by a certified
chimney sweep.
Install Smoke And Carbon Monoxide
Detectors
If you haven't already done so, now is a
great time to install smoke and carbon
monoxide detectors throughout your
home. These devices can potentially warn
you about a fire or wood burner malfunc-
tion, and may save your life. Talk to your

10th annual Christmas Cookie



Exchange benefits TP Village


. by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
F or almost 10 years, two
local women, Nancy
Hibben of Jacksonville
Beach and Sunny Brooks of
Ponte Vedra Beach, have
hosted an annual Christmas
Cookie Exchange.
From the beginning, the
women had a dual purpose
. in mind for their., party.
They wanted to have a
fun holiday social event and
they hoped to raise funds
for a local charity, Hibben
said.
Guests are asked to bring
four dozen cookies wrapped
in packages of one dozen
each. They in turn are wel-
come to take home a selec-
tion of cookies from the
bountiful table filled with
the holiday treats.
If cookies are not their
specialty, the ladies are
encouraged to bring some-
thing else they enjoy mak-
ing. .
Even, those who "refuse
to bake" are welcome to
come, added Hibbenim. :
While the ladies mingled
and looked over Hibben's


dining room table laden
with Christmas cookies and
other treats this year, they
also enjoyed finger sand-
wiches and other light
refreshments.
Hibben and Brooks always
have a basket at the party
for any donations the guestsW
want to give to a local chari-
ty they have designated.
At their first Cookie
Exchange, according to
Hibben, the guests donated
$3,300 for Mission House,
the Jacksonville Beach
agency that serves the
homeless.
This year, proceeds from
the party will go to the TPC
Village off Beach Boulevard.
TPC Village is operated by
Gateway Services and is a
residential facility that pro-
vides substance abuse treat-
ment for youth. It was
formed more than 10 years


ago by The Players
Championship charities.
Through the generous
gifts of the ladies attending
last year's party, the funds
donated to TPC Village fur-
nished the new girl's cottage
there, Hibben said.
"Ten years ago we wanted
to do something for some-
body else and have an old-
fashioned Christmas party,"
said Brooks.
"The ladies seem to like
this old-fashioned way to
celebrate Christmas with
friends and to give to oth-
ers."
The party gives the ladies
a break from the holiday
rush. They come from in
town and not just from the
beaches, said Hibben, whose
sister Jane Champion comes
from Tallahassee every year
for the party.
Champion and a few of
the other guests shared
recipes for the holiday treats
they brought to the Cookie
Exchange.
Champion brought
Cinnamon Glazed Pecans
made from an Emeril-
inspired recipe.
Sharon McKinnon's Mint


Brownies looked festive for
Christmas with crushed pep-'"
permint candy sprinkled
over the frosted brownies.
Marlene Edwards used a
recipe tor Green Bundt Cake
from Allrecipes.com and
adds either chopped dried
cranberries or cherries to
make the cake even prettier
for the holidays.
Denise Getsy's recipe for
Cheese Crackers is fun to
read and the crispy, cheesy
bites were a good change of
pace from holiday sweets.

The following are recipes for
some of the holiday treats
brought to Nancy Hibben and
Sunny Brooks, Cookie
Exchange.

Pecans

1 large egg white (3 T)

'Frosty the Snowman' excuse a new one


L ast year during our
� annual holiday dinner,.
L-.the dining toom table
started on fire as we lazed
around the kitchen dis- ',
cussing gravy and when you
know if a turkey is really
done.. - .
This year when we put the .
burned leaf into the once-
beautiful oak dining room
table, all I could do was
laugh. There is a nice burn
hole in the table that we :
decided not to have fixed
just so.we could laugh and
then double over remember-
ing the "hot" dinner we
had. .
We remembered how my
son very nonchalantly said,:
."Mom, the table is on fire,"
as he put napkins on the
proper side of the plate.
We remembered how my ,
brother, for some insane
reason, was vacuuming out
behind the refrigerator just
moments before everything
came together in those cru-
cial 10 minutes before you .
yell, "Everyone to the

table."
,This made it hard to hear .
my son's calm voice.
We remembered how we
decided it was really .not a
good idea to leave a candle
untended on the'table and
how my father; the ex-vol-
unteer fireman, told,us his
burning house storiess well
into dessert.
This year, we have a
whole new set of stories to,
remember.
This will be the year of
the late curfew;.' the night
we lay awake until almost 1


a.m. waiting for the daugh-
ter to show up for her mid-
night curfew, the daughter
who finally came home at
12:55 a.m. and sheepishly"
told us she was watching
"Frosty the Snowman" with
her boyfriend and forgot
about the time and the
12,000 phone messages
from her mother asking if
she was lying in a hospital
morgue. .
"Frosty the Snowman.".
Good one, Rachel.
Then, just as we were
finally falling asleep a little
after 2 a.m., a shadowy fig-
ure appeared at the bed-
room window with a flash-
light.'
This was a "holy @#$%"
moment.
The shadowy figure
moved from window to
window' as we quickly threw
on bathrobes and tried not,
to pass out and then did
what you are not supposed
to do -- run into the yard
to confront the shadowy
figure who you assume is a


7 kid trying to toilet paper the
lawn, the boyfriend bring-
ing over the study notes
from "Frosty the
Snowman," or a killer.
This time, it was the tipsy,
college-aged, home-for-the
holiday son, who forgot his
key and apparently how to
.dial his own cell phone to
have us let him into the
house.
If you think a, bad turkey
is scary, you. should try this
for dessert.
In retrospect, we are
thinking that the table fire
is more exciting, but what is
really bothering us is the'
fact that the December holi-
days are looming and that
means the college boy will
be home for almost a
month and the daughter is .
already trying to convince
us to extend her curfew past
the midnight limit - as if
we will ever let her out of
the house again..
It's definitely Happy
Holidays with a teenaged
twist around here.

Florida relatives years ago of Rhodes Wyvlie.


"The damn blow came up, " Bo IWylie, 81, said
in 2005.
"I was supposed to go out, too, but I didn't.
Rhodes had lost his anchor line the trip before and
was using a wire towing cable as an anchor. 0

water."

the ill-fated Mayport shrimp boat Donald Ray is in the back-
ground. Bo Wylie, who died in 2005, said the crew's last refuge
aboard the sinking shrimp boat was likely the roof of the wheel-
house. He believed the men clung to the boat's swaywire; which -
led from the bow stem to the top of the mast, as the Donald
Ray slowly sank. To read "Requiem for the Donald Ray," visit

IAPANESP STEAK & SEAFOOD MOUS,


Cont. from A-8
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups raw, unsalted
pecans (substitute or mix
raw walnut halves or skin-on
almonds)
Preheat oven to 225
degrees. Line a baking sheet
with parchment paper.
Whisk egg whites to a
froth. Add water, sugar,
brown sugar, kosher salt, cin-
namon, and vanilla. Toss
pecans into the mixture
until well coated. Pour
pecans onto the lined baking
sheet. It is important to
arrange a single layer of nuts
and turn every 15 minutes to
ensde- even roasting.
Remove from oven when
meringue coating is dry,
approximately 45 minutes.
Variations:
Savory: Add to the above
recipe 1 tsp. Worcestershire,
1 tsp. chili powder, and one-
quarter tsp. ground cayenne
pepper.
Cinnamon and Spice: Add
to the above recipe one-half
tsp. cayenne pepper and
one-half tsp. ground cumin.
Orange and Cinnamon:
Add to the above recipe an
additional tsp. of cinnamon,
1 T grated orange peel, one-
quarter tsp. ground nutmeg,
one-quarter tsp. ground gin-
ger, and one-quarter tsp.
ground cloves.
Denise's Cheese Crackers
(Denise Getsy)
The Stuff: one-half lb.
sharp cheddar cheese
2 sticks of butter or Parkav
margarine (do not use low
fat or low cholesterol butter)
2 cups all purpose flour
one-half tsp. Cayenne pep-r
per (or more for extra kick)
one-quarter tsp. salt
2 cups Rice Krispies
The Mixin, (hope you,re
not afraid to get your hands
dirty)
Grate the cheese, then mix,
the butter and cheese togeth-
er. It helps to soften the but-
ter and cheese slightly.
. Sift the flour, cayenne pep-


per, and salt into the mix-
ture. (The sifting spreads the
ingredients evenly.i Mix
thoroughly. Lastly, mix in
the Rice Krispies.
The Fixin: Roll the dough
into a ball the size of a quar-
ter and placed on a greased,
or non-stick cookie sheet.
Mash with a fork to desired
thickness. I like mine thin
and crispy, says Getsy.
Bake at 300 degrees for 20
to 25 minutes.
Tips: Most flour is pre-sift-
ed, but sifting again can
increase volume. Sifting is a
suggestion but not required.
Use a tablespoon or two less
flour because of the sifting.
..- Putting thebcheeselih"tee'
microwave for about a
'minute and the butter for .10
to 20 seconds1can make
hand mixing a little easier.
Keep a close eye towards
the end of the cooking time.
Turn the cookie sheets dur-
ing the baking. The cookies
will continue to harden if
left on the cookie sheet to
cool.

No longer confined'to courses
only, the golf cart and its larger
equivalent - the electric-pow-
ered shuttle - have become the
wave of the future and soon will
conquer the world, according to
Ted Jackrel, Gator Motor LI.-V
sales manager.
"At least that's what we believe
here, and we've established our
business based on that fact," he
said. "We provide businesses and
the public with golf carts, street-
legal golf carts and electric vehi-
cles that not only take riders
around golf courses but also
serve as their general means of
transportation."
Also available at Gator Motor
UNVMI are shuttles and delivery-
type vehicles for businesses and

Gator Motor Utility Vehicles and More, LLC, in Atlantic Beach sells golf carts, street-legal
golf carts and electric vehicles. Pictured above are some of the energy-conscious, elec-
tric-Dowered vehicles they have in stock for lease or purchase on their lot.


community uses that can carry
from two to 15 people for service-related fields without
using an ounce of gasoline while doing so.
"We opened Gator Motor UVMI to take advantage of
what we believe is a growing trend toward the use of elec-
tric-powered vehicles, with the goal to make their use and
operation as easy as operating a conventional automobile
or truck," Jackrel said.
Gator Motor UVM sells three distinct products to both
individual and commercial buyers. The first is the tradi-
tional golf cart - capable of traveling up to 13 miles per
hour - that can be used on private property such as golf
courses.
The second is a street-legal golf cart - that can travel
from 20 to 25 miles per hour on certain public roads. "By
federal law, all styles of 'street legal' vehicles must travel
between 20 and 25 miles per hour and have specific safety
features including a horn, brake lights, driver side mirrors,
headlights, parking brakes, tail lights, seat belts, signals
and windshields," Jackrel said. "Also required by federal
law is a 17-digit \IN number you can use to get a license
plate and registration from. the Department of Motor
Vehicles."
The third category is a "real upgrade" from the golf cart
category, according to Jackrel. "It's what we call our
Electro-Bubble Buddy - a little electric car that is decked
out with items like AM/FM CD players and speakers, flip-
down TVs so you can go to a football game and watch the
pre-game show on the TV, a digitized dash board, mag
wheels, leather steering wheels, captain's chairs with arm
rests, speedometers and a climbing axle ratio high enough
that you have power to go over hills as well as a rear lock-
a.ble trunkr f carrying groceries. and other such iteishe"
said. '"'" " '
"We're even building some units for die-hard football
fans - in the colors of your favorite team, including the
Georgia Bulldogs, Florida Gators, Florida State Seminoles
and the Jaguars," Jackrel said.
Gator Motor UVMl also sells and leases vehicles to both
businesses and private individuals - anything from two-
to six-passenger golf carts (street legal or for the golf course
only) to 15-passenger electric shuttles.
"Electric-powered shuttles can be used for security pur-
poses and for shuttling passengers in parking lots, on
motel and amusement park property and any situation,
really, that requires people to be moving around private


property in areas conducive to low-speed vehicles," Jackrel
said. "Our Delivery-Buddy vehicle even has an insulated
back box that could be used to deliver piping-hot pizza or
other applications such as room service or housekeeping
duties in a resort setting."
"According to federal statistics, 50 percent of a person's
errands are within 10 minutes of travel, so it's not always
necessary to turn to a gasoline-powered vehicle to run
errands," Jackrel said. "Electric-type vehicles can be used in
those applications as well, whether you're going to the
restaurant, running your daily errands or picking up your
kids. Everywhere there is a need for a car, there's an appli-
cation for electric-style cars."
The golf cart, shuttle and Electro-Bubble Buddy are eco-
nomical and practical answers to most short-term trans-
portation needs, he said. "It takes six hours to achieve full
charge at a cost of 50 cents -'so just plug it in when you
finish your day and you'll be ready to-go the next morn-
ing," Jackiel added. "It's powered by a 48-volt system con-
taining eight 6-volt deep cycle batteries that will recharge
on 110-volt house current, and all of our packages contain
a smart charger that simplifies this process, so all you do is
plug it in."
Gator Motor LJVNI offers both buying and leasing plans
as well as complete financing available with minimal down
payments. Plus, all vehicles can be serviced right here at
the Beaches. Gator Motor UV\N has service centers in
Atlantic Beach and on Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville. A
mobile service truck is also available to perform repairs at
clients' homes or businesses.
"We're local, we're trying to keep our prices as low as
possible and if someone comes in here and talks to our rep-
resentatives, and wants something like this,,wy'll make spre.
it happens," Jackrel said.
Prices are $4,495 for a two-seat standard golf cart, $5,995
for a street-legal two-seat golf cart and $6,545 for the twCo-
seat Electro-Bubble Buddy. Jackrel said the only competitor
to the Bubble-Buddy is priced 30 percent higher than the
Bubble Buddy. "For comparison, competitors' six-passenger
golf carts/shuttles run at about $10,000 while the Gator
Motor UV\I's six-seater golf carts are priced at $5,995."
Gator Motor Utility Vehicles and More, LLC is located at
54 \V. 10th St. in Atlantic Beach. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on
weekends. For more information, call 247-1818 or visit

Senators near end of regular season


Conference championships

begin after Christmas break


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
With the boys and girls soc-
cer seasons winding down,
Fletcher teams have turned
their attention to the upcom-
ing playoffs where both have
the potential to make some
noise.
Last Friday night, the
Senators boys team tied Orange
Park, 3-3, with Jason Phillips
netting all three Fletcher goals.
IThe win improved the
Senators' season mark to 9-3-4.
Fletcher was slated to travel to
Mandarin on Tuesday in a final
tune-up before the Gateway
Conference
Tournament
gets underway
Jan. S. The
Gateway finals
are scheduled
to take place
lan. 12.
After that,
the Senators
conclude the
regular season
\with games . .:
against Nease
S lan. 161, First Coast (Jan. 18i
and Terry Parker ijan. 19)
before the District Tournament
begins Jan. 22. This year's dis-
tricts will be played at Fletcher
High School.
Before the season began,
Senators head coach Mike
Levine's biggest concern was
offensive punch. But freshman
Tony Kattreh, juniors Cabe
Nolan and Donald Grzena, and
a host of others including Alex
Schanen, Phillips and Sam
Allen have stepped forward to
put their team on the score-
board.
Defensively, the Senators are
solid up the middle and in
goal.
It's an interesting mii\ of vet-
eran players and young talent
on Levine's squad. Senior lead-
ership is provided by irudfielder
Kwame Alavon. Richard
Huggett, Andrew Mlcllrath, vet-
eran varsity starter Sam Allen,
Phillips, Tommy Long and
Manuel Salcedo.
The team has played well
throughout the year but Levine
knows all about peaking in time
foi the postseason.
"Organizationally, defensively,
we're doing a real good job,"
Levine said after defeating
Mandarin earlier this month.
"We're starting to figure it out.
We're starting to get the rota-
tions and step into players a lit-
tle bit better. I'm very proud of
how we did that.
"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 Largo) we never
had more than three guys at a
time playing. And everyone else
was just wearing a unifomi on
the field.
"So it still comes back to bite
us once in a while. But we're bet-
ter now than we were, and we'll
be better by the end of the year
than we are nght now."

On the girls side. sophomore
Carolina Lencina seems to
have regained her form after a
three-game "slump."
Lencina. who keys Fletcher's
offensive attack, scored all
three goals in a shutout over
Orange Park last Friday.


The Senators were scheduled
to face Ed White Tuesday night
and Englewood on Wednesday
before a much-needed
Christmas break, according to
head coach Megan Pardue.
"We're physically drained."
Pardue said Monday. "We've
got a bunch of players playing
both high school and club soc-
cer and that can be a double-
edged sword.
"It's great because their skills
are better developed and they
develop a chemistry with their
teammates, but it's also very
physically demanding and can
lead to either a loss of focus or
injuries."
Several play-
ers - not all of
them partici-
pating on club
rr teams - are
nursing nag-
ging injuries
and Pardue
said the 17-day
break %ill
prove either a
blessing or a
curse.
"We're play-
ing well right now so you're
always worried that it might
not be that way when we
return from Christmas break."
she said. "On the other hand,
we'll have indoor practices in
the Fletcher gym to stay sharp
and hopefully when we come
back we'll be pretty well healed
up.'
Goalkeeper Amy Nledis is
among those banged up,
although she received good
news this week when what was
thought to be a high ankle
sprain was diagnosed as a sim-
ple sprain. "Willi" Babillis filled
in for MNedis against Paxon last
Wednesday and Orange Park
Friday.
.After winter vacation, the
Senators begin play in the
Gateway Conference
Tournament Jan. 8. As a top
seed, Fletcher will likely have
at least one home game, but
must travel to Mandann for
the semifinal and final rounds.
"Everybody looks past the
conference [championships] as
no big deal, but if you're the
best in your conference that's
probably an indicator of how
you'll do in the districts and
regions," Pardue said.
"It was one of our goals to
get a top seed and it's a goal to
win the Gateway title."

GIRLS BASKETBALL
St. Augustine 50, Fletcher 32
The Senators suffered a home
loss Monday night to the visit-
ing Yellow Jackets.
Kristen Hackworth led
Fletcher with 10 points, fol-
lowed by Alyssa Patterson with
seven and teammates Belia
Rodriguez, Christine Perkins
and Treykeezia Smith with four
points each.
After a close first quarter in
which the Senators trailed 15-
13, the team scored only three
points in the second quarter as
St. Augustine forged a lead it
would not relinquish.
The loss dropped Fletcher to
8-6 on the season. Coach Rich
Banks' squad was set to lace up
their sneakers again Tuesday
against Paxon, and then again
on Friday in a trip to First
Coast High before two weeks
off for Christmas break.

OPINION


Photo by ROB DeANGELO
Jaguars QB David Garrard (9) threw three interceptions and lost
a fumble in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.


Jaguars let another one slip away


W hy did the Tennessee
Titans do it to their
favorite punching
bag from Jacksonville again?
The reason is simple. The
Titans wanted Sunday's game
more than.the Jaguars did.
The Jeff Fisher gang was hot
and after the shellacking it
took here earlier this season,
revenge was boiling in the
players' veins.
Throughout last week, sto-
ries out of Nashville kept men-
tioning that fact. 7-
In the jaguars locker room,
on the other hand, one would
never know there was any fear,
of retribution. At least in the
days preceding Sunday's con-
test.
"Naw," one player told us,.
"they might be hot now, but
we took 'em earlier and we'll
do it again."
From Sunday's stats, which
say that the Jaguars won, one
would believe that'--- except,
the stats don't always put
points on the board. One
hates to use the word "choke,"
but that's about what hap-
pened to the boys wearing
Teal and Black.
Jacksonville tried to give the
game away and succeeded.
You might say the Jaguars
offense scored 31 points - 17


REX EDMONDSON
PRESS BOX


for themselves and a generous
14 for Tennessee. That was a
result of giving the Titans
three interceptions.and an
untimely fumble.,
Sure, the 24-17 score doesn't
tell the whole store . Several
"what-ifs' tell it better.
What if Fred Taylor's tender'
hamstring hadn't give way on
his 35-yard run that -seemed
destined to, end with a touch-
down? Instead it was just a
nice, run instead of six points.
That play alone might have
turned the game around.
It also took Taylor out of
commission for the rest of the
day.' That was a devastating
loss for Del Rio's boys.


What if David Garrard had-
n't played like a raw rookie?
He tossed three interceptions
and fumbled to give the Titans
all the chances they needed to
get the victory.
The Byron Leftwich-lovers
haven't stopped cheering yet.
But what if the offensive
line had

the outcome.
The "what-ifs" are always
there in any loss, but there
were more of them Sunday for
head coach Jack Del Rio's
team.

- one of them against the
New England Patriots, alas, it
appears that

irked a viewer:
[t Some Jaguars
w players were
seen laughing
tand as jolly as
*il T ea they'd be at a
lak*beer fest. The
Titans had a
right to laugh.
They had done it again to
their favorite patsies.
Byron Leftwich is probably
still laughing, and it's not
from the anesthetic used dur-
ing his ankle surgery.
Oh; well, men. Wait'll next
year. Again.


Marshall University players remembered


"T A Thenever the Jags win,
\/1 it seems people in our,
V .Vcity are simply in a
better mood come Monday.
Jacksonville's emotions often
rise and fall with our team.
Folks tend to make Jaguars
games a part of their weekend,
and feel they have some bond
w. ith the Jags.
Now imagine that it all sud-
denly disappeared. Imagine
that while traveling to say,
Denver, there was a terrible
crash and all on board the
jaguais plane were killed in the
accident. All of the players. All
of the coaches. The medical
staff and the trainers.
Can you imagine? Think of
the grief that the families,
would have, and.that this area
as a whole would feel as well.
Unfortunately this very-situa-'
tion happened in Huntington,
WV.Va. over 35 years ago. The
year was 1970 and the Marshall
University Thundering Herd
was returning from Greenville,
N.C. where they had lost to
East Carolina University.
It was a rainy and windy
night and the plane was . .
approaching the Tri-State
Airport on the W\est Virginia
border. At 7:42 p.m., on
descent, the plane clipped the
top of the trees, and slammed
into the Appalachian.hillside.
The plane burst into flames
and all 75 on board were killed.
Along with the coaches and
players who died, lost were four
physicians, a city councilman, ,
a local car dealer, the local
radio announcer, and several
prominent businessmen. This
remains the worse disaster ever

plane, but then decided to
drive back with another assis-


tant to make some recruiting
visits. The Thundering Herd
, team captain, Nate Ruffin, had
stayed behind on campus due
to,a right arm injury. The . .

tant coach had given up his

terrible night.
There are many stories relat-
ed to the.crash and the unenvi-
able task of rebuilding the foot-
ball program after the tragedy.
This is the subject of the movie,
, "We are Marshall" which opens
in theaters nationwide on
December 22.
University president Donald
Dedmon appointed Jack
Lengyel, portrayed by Matthew
McConaughey, to coach the


"Young Thundering Herd,"
after the crash. With few expe-
rienced players, the team won
only two of its 10 games that
year -- including an upset win
over Xavier on the last play of
the game.
The "Young Thundering
Herd" however set the stage for
what has become one of the
most successful NCAA pro-
grams, including 20 consecu-
tive winning seasons, two of
them undefeated. Marshall has
won eight conference crowns,
five bowl wins, and two l-AA
national championships.
Marshall has also sent several
players to the NFL, including
Randy Moss of the Oakland
Raiders, Chad Pennington of
the New York Jets, and Byron
Leftwich of the Jacksonville
Jaguars.
