The Jacksonville Electric Authority
(JEA) will not work with the city of
Atlantic Beach to collect electric bills
at city hall, according to City
Manager Jim Hanson.
After the recent relocation of the
tax collector's office from Atlantic
Beach to Neptune Beach, Beaches cus-
tomers lost the Jacksonville Electric
Authority (JEA) branch. The nearest
location is now at St. Johns Bluff.
The city of Atlantic Beach sent a let-
ter to JEA asking if the city and JEA
could establish a system in which
electric bills could be collected at city
hall so that Beaches customers would
still have an easily accessible loca-
JEA responded in a letter dated Dec.

18 and said that due to a "major tech-
nology implementation" of a cus-
tomer information system that would
consume time and resources, it would
not be possible for JEA bills to be col-
lected at Atlantic Beach city hall.
The commission discussed the issue
and concluded that another letter
should be drafted to JEA in another
attempt to establish some type of
solution for customers.
"I'm disappointed with the letter,"
said Mayor Don Wolfson, "I think
that the JEA has really flipped us off,"
he said at a meeting Monday.
JEA provides electricity to Atlantic
Beach, while the remainder of the
barrier island is served by the city of
Jacksonville Beach's Beaches Energy
Services, which offers drive-through
service at its offices in Jacksonville
Beach City Hall.

Raccoons, snakes, possums on the loose

Who you gonna call?

Answer often depends on where you live

While some Beach ani-
mal control departments
will pick up any type of
animal, others limit their
services to specific cases.
Jacksonville Beach'and
Neptune Beach dispatch-
ers will send help to any-
one calling about an ani-
mal problem, regardless
of whether the critter is
wild or domestic. If the
cities do not have the
resources to pick up an
animal, they have wildlife
individuals and organize,
tions on call, officials in
both cities said.
Jacksonville Beach' s
sole animal control offi-
cer will collect alligators,
deer and snakes, as well as
roaming dogs and cats.
Neptune Beach's animal
control officers one
full-time and one part-
time will do the same.
"I find it much easier to
respond to .calls for serv-
ice rather than to make
up excuses as .to why it is
not in our job description
or in our policies," said
Robert Wade, Jacksonville
Beach's animal control
officer of 17 years.
Ponte Vedra Beach,
serviced by St. Johns
County, and Atlantic
Beach have different poli-
cies, though both have
multiple animal control
officers on staff full time.
Neither will dispatch
help to pick up wild or
feral animals, such as
snakes, raccoons and
armadillos, unless there is
an immediate threat to
public safety or they hap-
pen to have a resource
that is available. Animal
control officials in
Atlantic Beach and St.
Johns County cited time
and resource constraints.
While Atlantic Beach
does have some outside
resources to contact on
occasion when a wild ani-
mal, such as a snake or
alligator, is a problem,
they generally refer citi-
zens to private companies
- although Police Chief
David Thompson said he
will go out on snake calls
on his own.
Thompson said in
Atlantic Beach, the
biggest problem animal
control officers face is
domestic animals and
there is not an over-
whelming need for pick-
ing up wild animals such
as raccoons and gators.

Paige Schaffer, a full-time animal control officer who has worked for the city for 13
years, plays with a cat that was recently rescued after it was abandoned.

Robert Wade wrangles with a young alligator
in the Marshside subdivision off 15th Street
South in a 2004 photo. Wade said he
observed the gator in the neighborhood's
pond for months before it finally wandered
onto a front porch. Estimated at three to four
feet in length, the gator was released into the
Intracoastal Waterway.

Arrest in


case has JB

cops asking



A homeless man
with a past record
of violent offenses
was arrested early
Monday morning
in connection with
a stabbing that left
a Jacksonville
Beach man critical-
ly wounded.
Charles Wesley
Hammond, 45,
was charged with
attempted felony
murder following
the incident near
the Jacksonville
Beach boardwalk.

had repeat
cops ask
why he was
not still in
county jail

The victim, Randolph Hicks, was:
stabbed multiple times with a knife near|
the SeaWalk Pavilion. His condition was;
upgraded to serious condition at Shands
Hospital, police said.
Hicks was stabbed in the left arm and.
received "slashing wounds as well as;
puncture wounds" to both sides of his
chest," according to Jacksonville Beach
Sgt. Tom Bingham.
Bingham said he is reviewing
Hammond's previous offenses dating back
to,Sept. 12, 2006 when he was arrested in
the 300 block of Beach Boulevard and
charged with aggravated battery with a
deadly weapon.
Police said Hammond smashed a quart
size beer bottle over the head of a clerk at
a gas station for having previously legally
banned him from the property.
The District Attorney dropped the
aggravated battery charge and Hammond
served 36 days in jail for trespassing and
misdemeanor battery, Bingham said.
Hammond was also ordered to com-
plete one year of probation, attend one
Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and write
a letter of apology to his victim. He was
released Oct. 17, 2006.
"A whopping 10 days later," Bingham
said, Hammond was arrested on Oct. 27
and charged again with aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weapon for stabbing a
man in the 100 block of Boardwalk North.
According to police, in the October
incident, Hammond stabbed the victim in
the right side of his rib cage during a
fight. The victim was airlifted to Shands
and told police that he walked up on
Hammond fighting with two other men
before he was stabbed, the report said.
The knife was recovered on the beach
after Hammond turned himself into
police, a report said.
Bingham said is awaiting the disposi-
tion in that case to explain "what hap-
pened; why he was back out."
A Jacksonville Beach K-9 officer
Monday tracked and apprehended
Hammond, who was hiding three blocks:
away in a sand dune with blood on his,
hands, police said. Bingham said the sus-
pect told officers that he had been in a

has focused its efforts on reduced spending with-
in the county. -i
Commissioners are scrutinizing everything
from capital improvement projects to the need .. f :;,
for more county vehicles, and let it be said that .
there is no shortage of helpful, money-saving .
hints from residents.
An excellent suggestion was made at a recent
meeting of the St. Johns County Civic :
Association Roundtable, when a resident play-
fully suggested the county purchase a few goats.
With as much as.the county spends on main-
taining its medians and right-of-ways, goats would
certainly be a cheaper way of keeping the grass and shrubbery at man-
ageable levels, the resident joked.
Not a bad idea, really. The goats could then be rounded up on the
weekends for a St. Johns County Petting Zoo.

Brenna Durden responds
to previous criticisms

A Jacksonville attorney accused by a commu-
nity. watch group of mishandling a property
rights case in Jacksonville Beach has responded
to the group's allegations.
Beaches Watch members at the Dec. 16 City
Council meeting complained that Brenna
Durden was not "vigorously defending" the
city's 35-foot height limit by not opposing a
request for summary judgment.
Southern Waterview Development, Inc. asked
photo submitted a judge to make a summary judgment on
whether vested rights existed to allow the devel-
opment of a 10-story luxury condominium that
would exceed the height cap.
Sandy Golding, president of Beaches Watch,
last week said that the City Charter requires
vested rights cases be determined by a "court of
competent jurisdiction through a trial in which
all the facts would be placed before the judge for
a full and fair determination."
She said requesting summary judgment is a
"clever strategy by the developers that the attor-
\ney for Jax Beach are not opposing."
Attorney Brehnna Durden, in a Jan. 22 letter to
the Jacksonville Beach City Council, City
SManager George Forbes and City attorney Steve
S| Stratford, said the accusations are unfounded.
l "We have examined the facts in the SWD case
closely and in light of past Florida case law,"
Durden said in the three-page memo. "I assure

you that our continuing purpose and intent in
this case has been to defend and uphold all of
the provisions of the Charter and ordinances of
the City of Jacksonville Beach and to represent
all of the interests of the City."
Durden said that in a Motion for Summary
Judgment, all information which is essential to
the court's determination must be presented
before a judge can grant the motion.
"It is clearly erroneous to suggest that it cir-
cumvents the necessity to have all facts relevant,
material and essential to the Court's determina-

Durden said the most egregious concern was
the contention that the city's legal team did not
provide the court with all of the necessary
information pertaining to the SWD case.
She said they proceeded with and provided all
of the "complete and correct" information with
"input from the full Council."
SWD was eligible for a building permit
because the development plan was approved
Nov. 1, 2004. The height limit did not go in
effect until a few days later.
Durden said she did not rush he City Council
to approve a settlement with SWD as Beaches
Watch contended.
She said while it is up to the court to decide
whether vested rights exist, the Charter does not
prohibit the council from discussing proposals
made by an opposing party.
"In fact, as attorneys, we are required to
promptly bring settlement proposals received
from an opposing party to a client's attention,"
Durden said, noting that the City Attorney may
also request a special meeting to hear such pro-

Alisa Arnold's friends are looking forward to
watching TV with her Thursday to see her
win big on TV's "Price is Right."
She appeared on the Bob Barker-hosted
?'show that was taped Dec. 6 at Television City
;-in Burbank, California.
To celebrate Arnold's consumer savvx suc-
cess, her friend Holly McKay is hosting a party
with 20 of the contestant's friends to watch
the morning show at McKay's Riptide home in
Jacksonville Beach.
"She's just a good friend. It's such an excit-
ing thing that happened to her," McKay said,
explaining why she organized a party. "I want-
ed to get people together to view it."
Although 103rd in line when position was
established, Arnold was the fifth person told to
"come on down" to contestant row, where her
$2,100 bid brought a curio cabinet and a \-isit
with Barker on stage. There, in the Lucky 7
game, she won a 2007 Dodge Magnum with a
'retail value of $24,735.
"I'm jumping around like a maniac after
,winning the car," she said.
SWhen.Arnpld hit $ the con-,,
testant's wheel, she, earned an.0clditiqia_ ,,
$1,000 and also a place in the Showcase
Showdown, which is where her luck ran out.
Despite the fact she was right on track with a
bid of $31,000 for the first showcase, which
included another car, a one-carat diamond and
a desk, she figured 350 people in the audience,
to include her travel companion and friend
Janine Sharkey, couldn't be wrong. So she low-
ered her bid by $3,000.
That cosi her the showcase.
"I always wanted to get .on the Price Is
Right," said Arnold, a flight attendant with
USAirways, who started watching the show
with her grandmother when she was little.
"For my 40th, I wanted to get a group togeth-
er -. but we couldn't go. Janine later ordered
tickets and called to say, 'They're here. I don't
care what you have to do. We're going.'"
The two women spent the night of Dec. 5 in
California. The two Jacksonville Beach resi-
dents arrived at CBS Studios at 4:30 a.m. for a
-2:30 p.m. taping.
"Having a ticket does not guarantee you're
on the show," said Arnold. "Since Bob Barker
has announced his retirement, it's gotten com-
petitive just to get in the studio. The first per-
son in line had arrived at midnight."
The night before, Arnold, aware of Barker's
support for the adoption of homeless animals
and need for neutering, made certain she was
properly outfitted. Owner of a half-dachs-,
hund, half-beagle named Jimmy Dean, she
wore a shirt with 'Bark'ers Beauty on front and
Jimmy Dean Got Yer Done on back.
Around noon, Arnold said, the show's inter-
viewer walked by and asked to.see her shirt.
"Everyone in the audience gets inter-
viewed," she said. "You have 20 seconds to sell
,yourself. I put on my best southern accent. I
knew I had a good interview."
A young woman she and Sharkey met in line
was one of the first four contestants. Then she
!heard, "Alisa Arnold, come on down."

"Jimmy Dean" gives his owner, Alisa Arnold, a
kiss, with Holly McKay, who's hosting a "Price
Is Right" watching party for Arnold Thursday,
looking on. Arnold earned prizes valued at
$28,146 when she competed in the Bob Barker
show that was taped Dec. 6.

"I ran like a maniac down to contestants
row," she said.
When Arnold got to the stage, she held a
picture of her dog Jimmy Dean through game's
end. She also said hello to her 95-year-old
"I don't know if they'll leave that in," she
Arnold has been pleased by the response her
Price Is Right success has received.
"My friends have been genuinely very happy
for me and very supportive but, in a sense, not
surprised," she said.
As to the 83-year-old Barker's upcoming
retirement, she said, "You should leave while
you're at the top of your game."
There is a downside to Arnold's success,
meaning she has to "pay the piper" the tax
"My total winnings were $28,146," she said.
"There's California state income tax, Florida
state sales tax and then Uncle Sam."


Cont. from A-1
He and Paul Studivant, the
animal control department
manager for St. Johns
County, both said that it
would take too much time if
officers responded to all
wildlife calls.
When there is a problem
with too many nuisance wild
animals in specific areas,
such as raccoons, however,
Atlantic Beach animal con-
trol will hire private compa-
nies that can trap and remove
the animals in order to allevi-
ate the immediate problem,
Thompson said.
According to Critter
Control, a Jacksonville-based
private company, there is a
$199 charge for a service call
and an additional charge for
each animal that trapped and
.removed, :depending :on,the
type of animal and situation.
Wade, the animal control
officer for Jacksonville Beach,
has been known to even col-
lect a rotting raccoon corpse
from a resident's yard.
In fact, the only animal
that the city has declined to
collect is a black bear in
south Jacksonville Beach sev-
eral years ago. In that
instance, a state wildlife offi-
cer was called.
Officials picking up wild
animals do not need a permit
to pick up wild animals
unless they are relocating
them, Studivant said.

The Leader's Opinion

Jax treatment

of AB on JEA

center here is

typically rude

Raise your hand if you are surprised by JEA's dismissive
response to Atlantic Beach!
Frankly, there should be no hands in the air as no one
should be surprised that JEA has found it easy to ignore
the city of Atlantic Beach's request for a local payment
site. The city even offered to make space at City Hall to
make it convenient for JEA's customers to make pay-
JEA's said it had recently implemented new technology
that would prohibit customer service at the Beach.
Has anyone at JEA realized that technology is supposed
to help customers not hurt them?
Again, the answer seems to be a big who cares from the
behemoth agency that serves all of Jacksonville proper
and appears to care less whether its few customers by the
sea are adequately served.
Mayor Don Wolfson said JEA's reply was not quite that
"I think that the JEA has really flipped us off," Wolfson
We hope he is not surprised because most at the
Beaches are not surprised by cavalier treatment from
those in public offices in downtown Jacksonville.
Our interests and our concerns are of little import all
that matters is our tax dollars that flow heavily to county
JEA officials seem to forget that a state of the art electric
utility has offices in Jacksonville Beach and provides supe-
rior quality service to the rest of the Beaches. Beaches
Energy charges a little more, but the quality, service and
commitment to customers helps offset that factor.
Maybe, it is time for Atlantic Beach to surprise down-
town and explore a switch in electric providers.
Customers would be well served.

America could be

-a much kinder place

if priorities change

To the editor:
I must admit as I began read-
ing {Tom Purcell's 1-19-07
"Democrats are like meter
maids that are overly enthusi-
astic (and thoroughly misguid-
ed)] column I was in total
agreement until you used your
displeasure with the. meter
maid as an excuse to insult
and condemn the Democratic
party. How Republican of you!
Let's oversimplify complex
issues and blame the prob-
lems of poverty, health care,
Social Security and the econo-
my solely on the Democrats.
Apparently, you needed to
express your displeasure over
the loss of Republican seats in
Congress and Senate by plac-
ing blame on the Democratic
party while ignoring that
Republicans have failed as
The American people spoke
in this last election, and I
think the major message was
that our government does not
listen to its people it .has

stopped caring. The govern-
ment is controlled by special
interest groups and most
politicians have secret agen-
das for power and wealth.
I'm approaching my 60th
birthday and as I review the
many elections in which I
have voted, I am disgraced
that this nation which has so
much wealth and resources
has not resolved these prob-
lems in my lifetime. I'm
ashamed that the majority of
Americans no longer care
about the less fortunate citi-
zens and think that funding
projects to the needy will
somehow rob them of their
own personal wealth.
Each day, I wonder if the
billions of dollars spent on
the war in Iraq had been used
in our own country to resolve
these problems and establish
strong security measures,
. what kind of America would
there be today?

Men need women to marry

- more than you can imagine

ll right, ladies, the gig is
up. It's time for all of us
to get married, includ-
ing you.
I refer to The New York
Times' recent report. After sort-
ing through U.S. Census data,
The Times determined that for
the first time in American his-
tory the majority of women,
51 percent, are living without a
The story tore through the
media like a lightning bolt. A
slew of "I am woman, hear me
roar" stories hit the airwaves.
The storyline was clear:
Women are finally free and
independent now, and the last
thing they need is some sloppy
spouse who leaves his socks
lying all over the house.
Well, nutm to that.) Lodtk,
ladies, deciding not to marry
for your own well-being is one
thing, but it is we you're not
marrying in the process. Your
decision is killing single men -
Single men partake in more
risky behavior than married
men. We eat badly, smoke
more, and avoid doctors'
offices. We die younger. And
we're far more likely to wake
up in a pile of crumpled news-
papers still clutching the tequi-
la bottle we began sipping
from two days before.
The reason why is not com-
plicated. We are social animals.
Men and women are very dif-
ferent creatures, but we were
made for each other. The
Catholics call it complemen-
tarity a man and woman, in
union and harmony, round
each other out.
Men need to be rounded
out, too. Take dust. Because
our brains take in less sensory
detail than a woman's, we


don't notice dust the way
women do. Thus, married men
tend to live in orderly, dust-
free homes), -wheseas r-s*i.
men, says P.J. O'Rourke, clean
up their place about once
every girlfriend.
Though it's not like single
women are faring much better.
The Times article quoted
independent women raving
about their freedom and flexi-
bility. A 32-year-old woman
had already lived with two
boyfriends and said that if she
ever did marry, she might opt
to keep her own place.
Another said she likes being
able to sleep on either side of
the bed.
Oh, just admit it, ladies. You
need us, too. Sleeping next to a
burping, snoring lug of a hus-
band may not be the stuff
dreams are made of, but it sure
beats sleeping alone. And
when you hear a prowler rat-
tling the door knob in the mid-
dle of the night, whom do you
send to investigate? Your cat?
I know The Times is eager for
a more progressive society to
take hold one in which the

stodgy traditional marriage is
kicked to the wayside but
the fact is marriage, imperfect
though it is, is good for us.
Married people are happier,
says the -Pew Research Center.
They enjoy life more they
enjoy sex more, too. Children
raised by married couples fare
better. Society fares better.
Successful civilizations are
built on the stability that tradi-
tional marriage brings.
But despite these simple and
obvious truths, we keep trying
to reinvent our nature. We
keep trying to prove there are
better ways to fulfill our simple
needs keep trying to leave
every option open, so that we
can be "free" and "independ-
ent" forever. A-_, i
And we end up ale'e..--.'-" ,
I can't imagine what old
folks homes will be like 40
years from now. There will be
an unprecedented number of
elderly single people living
alone. No children or grand-
children will visit them no
spouse will care for them. I
wonder if The Times will do a
front-page piece on that trend,
All I know is that my life
would certainly be better if I
woke every morning in a full
home in which my children
are laughing and my wife is
smiling, rather than the way I
often wake now with a
throbbing noggin' because my
single friends and I over-
enjoyed our freedom and inde-
pendence at the pub the night
Like I said, it's time for all of
us to get married.

Certainly, Captain Colin P.
Kelly, born in Madison,
Florida, qualifies. He has been
considered the first American
hero of World' War II, and I
heard about him when I was
in high school in the 1940s.
His bomber was badly dam-
aged in combat and was going
down. As pilot, he stayed at
the controls so the other crew
members could bail out and
he perished there. Kelly sacri-
ficed his life to save his crew
and received the
Distinguished Service Cross
Last year, I learned about
the heroic Four Chaplains.
They also died in World War
II. I covered them in a
1/25/06 Leader column that
announced a ceremony hon-
oring them on Feb. 5, 2006 at
Jacksonville Beach American
Legion Post 129. In brief, they
were aboard a troop transport,
the Dorchester, sailing the
dark, icy North Atlantic on
Feb.3, 1943, heading for
Greenland, when the vessel
' was' torpedoed by an enemy
submarine. '.... .
As the Dorchester sank
quickly, the chaplains helped
the troops to abandon ship,
comforting them and, distrib-
uting life jackets. The supply
of jackets and needed life rafts
had been reduced by the
attack, so when the stock of
life jackets ran out with all
available rafts and lifeboats
full, the clergymen took their
own jackets off and gave them
to soldiers who had none.
When last seen by survivors,
the chaplains were standing
on deck with arms linked,
offering prayers.
In recognition of their self-
sacrifice, they were posthu-
mously given the Purple Heart
and Distinguished Service
Cross. These kind, brave men
were George L Fox
(Methodist), Alexander D.
Goode (Jewish), John P.
Washington (Roman
Catholic), and Clark V. Poling
(Dutch Reformed).
Yet another World War II
hero I never knew of until
recently is Peter Tomich. He
was Chief Watertender on the
USS Utah, one of the first
ships sunk at Pearl Harbor. An
account of his valiant per-
formance when the ship was
torpedoed reads: "...Tomich
was on duty in a boiler room.
As Utah began to capsize, he
remained below, securing the
boilers (to avoid explosion)
and making sure that other
men escaped and so lost his
life." He was posthumously
awarded the Medal of Honor.
We should never forget
these courageous servicemen.
On Sunday, Feb. 4a, American
Legion Post 129 will help to
make sure we remember the
Four Chaplains by again hold-
ing a memorial ceremony at 2
PM. Post Chaplain Bill Reno
invites the public to attend.

Promoting mixed use devel-
opments, architectural stan-

planners in Jacksonville Beach
could maintain the viability of
the city's downtown area.
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff said the
urban design firm Glatting
Jackson of Orlando will con-
duct a three day-planning ses-
sion in March to develop a
"vision" to keep the downtown
area moving forward.
"They will be focusing in on
the way things work and the
way things look," Lindorff said
last week. "They are very big
on 'walkability,' walkable com-
munities. They have national
experts in that sort of thing."
City officials last year also
approved a contract with the
the engineering firm GAI
Consultants to complete a
comprehensive engineering
study and design required for a
multiphase road improvement
project in the area.
"They [GAI] are the horizon-
tal guys. They are looking at
the plumbing and Glatting
Jackson will help us develop a
picture of how. we want our
downtown area to look."
The Downtown Revisioning
Project will continue the revi-
talization of the Central
Business District and

take a look at urban design
issues and other things that
may come up through a

planners call charets," he said.

Lindorff said representatives
of the urban design firm plan
to interview "stake holders" in
the downtown area including
the members of the city's
Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
Individual interviews will be
conducted to solicit ideas and
"thoughts on where we should
go," he said.
Lindorff said participation in
the interview process is not
mandatory and is not required
to maintain membership' on
the CRA.
"Your input is valued. We
would like to hear it and they
wold like to hear it. The city
and the agency have come a
long way in our downtown
area," Lindorff told CRA mem-
bers at a meeting this week.
"We think that this firm .can
help us come up with a vision
for going forward."

A ir '

The CRA will consider a
request to fund the study at its
February meeting. Lindorff
said city planners are still try-
ing to determine a cost.
City Manager George Forbes
last month said the project will
also "dovetail nicely" with a

ture improvements in the

A man armed with a large
knife entered the Wachovia
bank branch on Palm Valley
Road Thursday, grabbed an
employee around the neck
and demanded money, accord-
ing to St. Johns County
The robber took an undis-
closed amount of money and
walked out the bank, where he
was arrested without incident
by deputies.
Thirty-three-year-old Eduard
Vuka, identified by police as
an illegal immigrant from
Albania living in Jacksonville,
was arrested on charges of
armed robbery Thursday
according to a news release
from St. Johns County Sheriff's
The release said deputies
were dispatched to the bank
after the holdup alarm sound-
ed at 9:18 a.m.
Eight minutes later, Vuka
walked out the front door,
only to be met by two sheriff's
deputies who immediately
arrested him, the report said.
In an interview just after the
robbery, Sgt. Chuck Mulligan,
spokesman for the Sheriff's
Office, said Vuka did not resist
arrest and no one was hurt
despite his "very aggressive"
behavior that was reported by
bank employees.
"We had two .deputies here
before he even walked out of
the bank," Mulligan said.
Mulligan said the Sheriff's
Office was not aware of any
customers within the bank at
the time, but one man, Dan
Philpot, was just finishing up a

transaction at the drive-
Philpot and his wife, who
live less than a mile from the
bank in Sawmill Lakes, were
waiting for a receipt from their
deposit when the robbery
Philpot said he saw a man in
the bank and then the woman
who was handling his transac-
tion turned to say that she
would soon send out his
"She was crying," Philpot
said Thursday.
And then, "she mouthed
[the words] she was being
robbed," he said.
That's when Philpot said he
pulled 'out of the drive-
through and immediately
dialed 911.
He said the police were
already aware of the robbery
and when he pulled away he
saw guns pointed at the build-
"I was worried about her
[the teller]," Philpot said,
adding that he hoped no one
would be hurt.
After about an hour of
interrogation by St. Johns
County detectives, Mulligan
said, Vuka was transported to
the county jail and was sched-
uled to be held there until his
arraignment this morning.
Vuka is also being charged
with false imprisonment and
grand theft, and the
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement Agency has been
notified, according to the
news release.
The money Vuka took was
recovered by police, Mulligan

Right Whales 'migration south includes our coastline


With prime Right Whale
viewing season just around the
corner, Frank Gromling, assis-
tant coordinator for the
Marineland Right Whale
Survey, shared last week what
he called "a mammal that is
very near and dear to my heart"
with a capacity crowd at the
Palm Valley Senior Center.
Gromling, in putting the size
of the Right Whale in perspec-
tive, elicited a gasp when he
said an adult would fill the
room in which they were sit-
ting. As he spoke about what
he called one of the most
endangered animals in the
ocean, Gromling emphasized
that anyone who finds himself
in proximity to a Right Whale,
either while swimming, surf-
ing, in a boat or on a plane,
needs to get at least 500 yards
away. That's the safety distance
mandated by the federal gov-
ernment. Fines for getting too
close can be as much as
$10,000, as well as confiscation
of boat or airplane.
Gromling said there are more
sightings of Right Whales in
February than in any other
month. Viewirgs can be
expected through March.

Gromling said 350 Right
Whales exist. While in this
neighborhood, they are moni-
tored by volunteers under the
aegis of his project, which sci-
entists includes of Woods Hole,
Marineland of Florida and
Marine Resources Council.
Marine Resources Council
started the volunteer sighting
network in 1995. The network
consists of 170 private citizens
in St. Johns, Flagler and Volusia
counties. They look for whales
from shore, using long-lensed
cameras, and from above, using
a light plane.
Gromling shared a variety of
facts about the Right Whales,
which can be as long 50 feet.
and weigh as much as 60 tons.
Calves are 15 feet at birth and
weigh one ton. They can live
longer than 60 years. Females
are slightly larger than males.
The calving interval is three to
five years.j
The crowd chuckled after
Gromling said each birth is sin-
gle, then added, "If you were a
female Right Whale, would you
want to give birth to more than
The Right Whale, principally
pregnant females but with a
few adolescents and some
adults, migrates each winter
from the waters off the coast of
southeast Canada and New

England to the northeast coast
of Florida: to deliver their
calves, which are raised in area
waters for two or three months.
The mothers take their off-
spring back north and "intro-
duce them to the world of
being a Right Whale," said
He said the only known calv-
ing ground is from southeast
Georgia to Cape Canaveral,
which the federal government
has established as a Critical
Gromling followed his infor-
mational slide show, "Right
Whales in Florida Waters,"
with two video pieces.
The first, produced by Turner
Broadcasting, was about
Gromling's survey project. The
other was footage of Right
Whales that he had filmed.
There are three species of
Right Whales, the others being
the Southern Right Whale,
indigenous to the coasts of
South America, Africa, New
Zealand and Australia; and the
Pacific Right Whale, to be
found off the coast of Alaska.
Once as many as 100,000, the
Right Whale once numbered
fewer than 100 in 1935, when
federal protection laws were
"They'd .been whaled out,
they'd been hunted to death,"

said Gromling.
The current number is 350,
but scientists say it could be up
to 400, he said. The Pacific
Right Whale numbered 400 in
1935 but now has as many as
The birth rate in 1994, he
said, was nine. In 2001 it was
31. Last year it was 19.
Mortality rate remains high. As
many as four calves are killed a
year. And more than 50 percent
of deaths, Gromling said, are
human-induced by, for
instance, ships striking them,
entanglement in fishing gear,
biotoxins and pollutants.
"Keep in mind that, these ani-
mals are literally millions of
years old and ships aren't,"
said Gromling, who said pro-
peller protectors are available,
but shipbuilders feel that
restricts operations.
In response to one question,
Gromling said Right Whales are
dangerous to humans only in
instances where a mother' is
protecting her calf.
He noted that the Navy has
started limiting sonar usage as
ship and submarines exist their
ports to avoid any possibility of
damaging whales, though no
damage has been shown.

The first in a series of
articles recognizing Beaches-

Mary Burke's greatest
compliment is being voted
teacher of the year at
Jacksonville Beach
Elementary School, the
magnet school for gifted
and academically talented.
Burke began her teach-
ing career in special edu-
cation for Duval County .

because everybody here is
teacher of the year as far
as I'm concerned," said
"For me, to be chosen
by everybody else is the
biggest compliment ever
because I know the com-

pany I keep around here
and they are amazing.".

staff in public schools are

Burke is currently a
finalist for schools in
Region 4 of Duval County
which includes all the
public schools at the
Beaches and West Beaches.

Clara Fisher, instilled the
importance of education.

from the time they were
children living in the

hard and she didn't want

"I think that's why I
love teaching because
you're always striving to
be better.
"The nature of learning
is so complex; you're
always learning."

classes in St. Aug.

Afew years ago while liv-
ing in London, Ponte
Vedra Beach resident
Valerie Wright had the
opportunity to study at the
prestigious Le Cordon Bleu
Culinary School.
Encouraged by her hus-
band, Tom, Wright, a mother
of two, signed up for profes-
sional training at Le Cordon'
Bleu in the Basic Cuisine
Wright had done plenty of
cooking when her two sons
were young along with enter-
taining frequently at home.
Confidant in her cooking
abilities, she enrolled in Le
Cordon Blue to be' more cre-
ative and go a level beyond
the ordinary "meat and pota-
toes" fare.
Wright believed she had
already mastered many of
the skills that were to be
taught in the 10-week course.
The chopping and knife
skills, which covered the first
day of the course, however,
proved to be more of a chal-
lenge than she had anticipat-
["Attending Le Cordon
Bleu was] "harder work than
one can possibly imagine,
but worth the effort," said
Wright, who graduated from
the school's basic cuisine and
patisserie courses.
Now, Wright has partnered
with her sister, Lynne
Fairfield, to offer culinary
classes at the Inn on
Charlotte Street in St.
Augustine, where Fairfield is
. the innkeeper.
* 'Faiifield said that the class-
es are another way she hopes
to provide her guests with a
relaxing and interesting stay
in St. Augustine.
"Most guests like to peek
into the kitchen," Fairfield
"This is a way we can
invite them to come in and
join us there. Couples of all
ages may find the classes
enjoyable or guests can
schedule a girl's weekend at
the Inn and attend a cooking
class as part of their stay,"
she said.
Another possibility, sched-
ule permitting, might be a
group of friends scheduling a
class for a day outing to St.
Augustine, Fairfield said.
The classes will cover dif-
ferent topics such as souffles,
seasonal foods, or pastries.
During each class, Wright
will demonstrate a recipe
highlighting techniques that
can be used to make similar
The idea, said Wright, is to
show people that they can be
successful preparing dishes

that might seem challenging.
Fairfield will also pair
wines with the recipes to add
to the students, enjoyment
as they sample what Wright
has prepared.
Wright's Twice Baked Goat
Cheese Souffles are the signa-
ture dish for the Souffles
class at the Inn. These are
baked in small individual
souffle dishes, then unmold-
ed and baked again after
being moistened with heavy
Carefully making the
cream sauce, tempering the
eggs before adding them to
the hot mixture, and beating
the egg whites are the three
most important steps to
ensure success with the twice
baked souffles, she said.
The flavors blend well in
the souffles so that not one
ingredient dominates the
taste of the delicious finished
product. This dish would
make a good choice for a
luncheon or with a main
As she demonstrates,
Wright offers tips on choos-
ing the right equipment and
the proper techniques. There
is also time for her to share
anecdotes about her experi-
ences at Le Cordon Bleu.
Wright suggested ideas for
cold dessert souffles, such as
Chilled Lemon Soufflle made
with the juice from Meyer
lemons grown in her yard.
While this is not a baked
souffle, the basis for the
recipe is a cooked custard.
Many of the same techniques
used in the Twice Baked Goat
Cheese Souffles are used in
making the dessert souffle.
The custard is quickly
chilled in a bowl of ice
water, then beaten egg
whites are folded into the
custard. Wright recommends
using pasteurized egg whites
for safety in this recipe. Just
be aware that they may take
a little more time to beat to
the right consistency, she
Freshly whipped cream is
gently folded into the mix-
ture before it is chilled in
small souffle dishes. After
unmolding, the souffles are
garnished to make picture
perfect individual servings.

Under spell of intoxicating computer

L ike most of the world, I
have become totally
'L addicted to my e-mail.
I work from a home-based
office. I keep in touch with
"my kids, my manager who
:sometimes is in the office two
!rooms down, editors, strangers
pretty much half the people
I know and associate with via
this lovely connection.
Also, like most of the world,
I have no idea how this works.
I'm still trying to figure out
how airplanes fly, for crying
. out loud. I especially try to
figure this out after I have had
two drinks, for about $5,000,
at the airport bar each and
every time I get on the
machines that fly. Think
about it.
In the back of my mind, I
have this goofy idea that there
are invisible men and women
on typewriters who work real-
ly, really fast and send mes-
sages on a secret contraption
that connects to every com-




puter that was ever born.
And I say born because
computers seem sort of real to
me. I love my computer. I talk
to my computer and put little
gifts of rocks and flowers
around it so it will cooperate
and get me through another
day without a nervous break-
down or heart attack.
I have not named my com-
puter. I think this is keeping
me out of an institution, but I
do think of it fondly and I

admit to having an obsession
with certain types of key-
When I type, slap me, oh
high school typing teacher, I
look at the keys. Now I type
really fast, never as fast as my
wild brain, but pretty dang
fast for a woman who looks at
all the letters, when she is
There is something about
the way my fingers glide
across certain keyboards. It's a
soft wide key that attracts me
the most, and I am here to tell
you that this computer and
my little, but too heavy,
portable baby have fine keys.
Because I write for a living, I
excuse my borderline love, the
computer behavior by com-
paring my computer to a
truck, a rake, a trowel, a shot
glass you know, whatever
you use to make a living is
something you should love.
Thus, I love my computer.

I love e-mails too, except
the junk mail that always
seeps into our files even with
the highest fence, the tightest
lock, the biggest guard dog.
These days I find myself
unsubscribing to websites that
I must have at one time want-
ed to visit on a regular basis.
What was I thinking? Was I
blinded by love? Did I sniff
too many live wires? Have I
fallen under the spell of the
intoxicating feel of my own
Did I get so carried away
with the feel of an f, k, or r
that I simply could not stop
As I delete, these days, I am
trying to be a better sub-
scriber, lest I spend any more
of my precious Internet time
saying bye-bye to sites I once
was on the verge of having an
affair with.
I am so sorry, little black

That's exactly what Jay is
doing for a busy family of four
in the process of updating and
expanding their home at 1160
Beach Ave in Atlantic Beach.
"They're keeping 100 percent of
their house's original founda-
tion and expanding from two
stories to three, adding a new
front to the existing structure
and building a pool in the back,"
[ay said.
The clients want to maintain

Thinking of updating or building a new home or commercial building? J. "Jay" Lavale
Paulin, president of Southeastern Structural Consultants, Inc. in Atlantic Beach, is ready to
help and share his expertise. Pictured above, Jay assists a client with the
renovation/expansion of a family home on Beach Avenue in Atlantic Beach.

1920s/early 1930s, and are doing a lot of the work themselves,
with Jay's advice.
"We have a solid base here and we don't want to tear it
down," the clients said. "Instead, we're trying to use what we
have, if we can, and recycle inside materials." For example,
they're pulling off the walls and using the walls' backside for
floors for the kitchen and downstairs. They're also saving the
home's original floors and rehnishing them
"My' husband read about lay and Southeastern Structural
Consultants, Inc. in the Business Review this fall," the client
said. "We met with Jay and also talked with a builder who had
worked with him and highly recommended him," she said.
First the clients met with an architect and shared their
design ideas. "The architect took our ideas and added his own
to make better use of our space, especially in a house that is
'broken up' in the fashion of the 1930s," the client said.
Then the clients took their architectural plans to Jay and
discussed their budget and builders' bids they had already
received. They hired Southeastern Structural Consultants,
Inc., and their home renovations/additions are in full swing.
"A large project like this can be overwhelming." the client
said. "There is so much to do and so much to consider you
have to know when to clear permits, when to install plumb-
ing, when to dry wall, when to order the windows and Jay
knows all of that."
The client said hiring a consultant like Southeastern.
Stir-crural. Consultants, Inc., offers a level of flexibility that
builders may not be able to provide. "We can find our own
people to work on individual steps of the renovation and
expansion and get quotes from them or ask Jay for quotes
from his people."
Hiring a consultant can save money, too "With a lot of con-
tractors, they give you one price, but you never know what is
built in," the client said. "With Jay we know exactly what to
expect, cost-wise, and what it includes."
Already Southeastern Structural Consultants, Inc. has saved
the client thousands of dollars. "We showed Jay one of the
bids we received, and we already know we're going to beat it
by $100,000,." she said.
"The whole building and renovation process is a little scary

for a homeowner," the client said. "But lay is our consultant
and our advocate. He draws up the paperwork before the work
is started and makes sure the work is done properly before
invoices are paid. We really do like this process."
lay likes the process, too. He's dedicated to completing proj-
ects on time and within budget -that's his motto. "My
favorite part of every project is first completion and -
second seeing the smiles on our clients' faces," he said.
"We strive to provide our clients personal attention and
detail for their project," .lJay added. "Because we're a small
firm, we attend to every stage of your project and help you
anticipate long-term growth expectations and current facility

Nease will host Lecanto

to open regional playoffs

In what has become a famil-
iar pattern, Nease and St.
Augustine field excellent girls
soccer teams. But when they
meet, the outcome is signifi-
cantly one-sided.
The Panthers have won
seven straight from the Yellow
Jackets, the latest being last
Friday night's 3-1 victory in
the District 5-4A champi-
onship game played at St.
High. \
Nease took
San early lead
when Kasey
Eckstein scoot-
ed down the
middle of the
Jackets defense
and deposited
a right--footed
shot into the
back of the net
less than four
minutes into PANTHERM
the game. JACKETS
St. Augustine
(23-1-1) evened things with
just under 11 minutes to go in
the first half when Lauren .
Hopfensberger eluded a pair of
Panthers defenders and buried
a low shot to the left side.
"The only wat St. Augustine
scores is the through ball,"
said Panthers goalkeeper
Catherine O'Donnell. "We
used an offside trap almost the
whole game and it worked
nearly every time.
"We made one mistake and
it cost us a goal but other than
that we played really, really
Two second-half goals by
Nease midfielder Lisa Heise,
iced that iced the game and a
third straight district title for
the Panithersr. .
"We had a lot of hard-work-
ing people out there tonight,"
Heise said afterward. "I think
it really showed how badly we
wanted it in the second half
after they got a goal to tie it."
On Heise's first goal, about
10 minutes after intermission,
the junior split two Jackets
defenders who seemed to stop
and admire her footwork
through the box. The mid-
fielder then blasted a low,
skidding shot that found the
back of the net.
Heise's second goal was a
left-footed blast from about 20
yards out with just over five

minutes remaining.
"Kristin [Hoover] is probably
our best playmaker but Lisa is
our best finisher," said
Panthers headocoach Dave
Silverberg. "She's got a great
left foot and she can strike it
better than anybody on the
team. We need to make sure
she shoots more."
With the victory, Nease (20-
1-3) moves on to the regional
quarterfinals where it will host
Lecanto Thursday night. at 7
/ Asked to
assess her
team's chances
now that the
playoffs are at
/ hand,
O'Donnell said
the Panthers
are cautiously
"I think we
can go all the
S 3 way," said the
1 junior keeper.
"I think we
have to work harder together
as a team to make it [to the
state's final four], but I think
we can do it.
"We did lose our strongest
players in the middle from last
year. Our center mids are real-
ly small but they make up for
it with their ball control. So
I'd say we're not as big as we
were last year but we're just as
Silverberg shares that cau-
tious optimism as his team
embarks on a mission to win
its third consecutive state title
and fourth in the last six
years. For the Panthers to earn
a return to trip to Fort
Lauderdale's Lockhart Stadium
and a berth in the Class 4A
final four, they'll have to win
two games on the road in the-
regional playoffs.
"Now it's a one-and-done
kind of thing," he said. "To,
some that might be pressure,
but for our kids, if we go
down we're not going down
without a fight. This team bat-
ties and they have a real will.,
"We've reached the point of
the season where you don't
have to say too much before
games and you just kind of let
the seniors and team leaders
take over. Everyone knows
what's at stake and you just
hope players can elevate their
games when it counts most."

Panthers forward Erin Hoover maneuvers through the Yellow
Jackets defense during last Friday's District 5-4A championship
game at St. Augustine High School.

Panthers midfielder Lisa Heise was the star of the show in last Friday's District 5-4A title game. She scored two second-half goals
to propel Nease to a 3-1 victory. The Panthers will host Lecanto Thursday in the first round of the regional playoffs.

Manning finally gets his

Colts to the Super Bowl .

T he suspense has been
almost unbearable, but
now the world knows
that Hillary Rodham Clinton
will run for president in 2008.
And oh, yes the Super
Bowl two weeks away will fea-
ture the Indianapolis Colts
(surprise, surprise!) and
Chicago Bears as the attrac-
This is for the benefit of
those watching the Snow Bowl
on Sunday and aren't sure who
won because they couldn't see.
But the big story that most
of the national media has
missed is that one of the
teams, the Colts, were actually
defeated by the Jacksonville
Jaguars a while back. No, real-
ly. The Jaguars beat Indy in a
regular season game, which is
something the New England
Patriots and Tom Brady could-
n't do in the AFC
Championship game in the
dome at Indianapolis on
It looked like the Patriots
were scoring a mild upset most
of the afternoon, but that did-
n't fool most of us who have
grown to know the Colts and
their distrustful ways for years.
Along came Peyton Manning
leading Tony Dungy's troops
in a late rally that has become
almost expected this year in



football. The Colts secure
38-34 victory and punci
their ticket to Miami.
It was heralded as a gr
event because in nine ye

been to a Super Bowl. TI

In football, not all the

of luck as well as a great
porting cast.
The Chicago Bears got
Sunday by outlasting thi

Orleans Saints, who probably
have never played in a Snow
Bowl before. we were told that
the Bears worked out in the
arctic region all week and, gee,
fellows, what's a little driving
The Saints, they told us, had
worked out in snuggly quarters
they have in the Crescent City
(as they used to call New
Orleans). Who could blame
"'- them?
;ON So the Bears clawed their
way to a 39-14 victory and the
NFL title game is now set.
Hooray for Rex Grossman,
who finally had the defining
red a game of his season. Again, the
hed critics missed the big story:
Grossman isn't just any old

never partial to anyone with that

a super no turnovers and weren't
'd lead flagged for many penalties.

dients of a winning team.

es a lot sometime.
sup- Alright, the Bears and the
Colts on Feb. 4 in Miami? And
t there who is brave enough to
e New oppose Hillary?

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning calls a play in the huddle during the Dec. 10
game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Manning has guided his team to this year's Super Bowl.

Are mouth guards a good idea for

high school basketball players?

Question: Should I wear a
mouth guard for high
school basketball?
Answer: Mouth guards are
often recommended, but other
that in football, seldom used.
Mouth guards protect not
only the teeth, but can also
protect the gums and lips, as
well as help to prevent injury
to the jaw by helping absorb
some of the force that occurs
during contact.
Some sports, such as football
and boxing, require a mouth-
piece, but truly any athlete
who participates in sports that
involves contact should con-
sider a mouth guard. This
would include basketball, soc-
cer, lacrosse, rugby and
A study by the University of
North Carolina, my alma
mater, looked at the use and
protection provided by mouth
guards. The study looked at 50
division 1 basketball teams and
followed them for the inci-
dence of dental injuries over
the course a single season.
The study found that while
only about 10 percent of the
players wore mouth guards,
those who did not were five
times more likely to sustain a
"serious dental injury" and fur-
thermore indicated that the
average cost of treatment for
these injuries was close to

Off the shelf mouth guards,
most costing less than $15, can
be found at most sporting
good stores, and can quickly be
custom fit by a boil and bite
Basically you dip the mouth-
piece in boiling water for about
30 seconds, then dip it in cold
water to cool it off, then put it
in and bite onto it until it
hardens, creating your custom
According to a report that I
found by the American Dental
Association, a whopping five
million teeth are knocked out
each year during athletic com-
Known as a tooth avulsion,
this is a complete separation of
the tooth from its socket, with

complete rupture of the peri-
odontal ligaments. The time
from injury to implantation is
critical to the survival of the
tooth, for the cells on the root
surface of the tooth must sur-
vive for the tooth to survive.
If a tooth is knocked out dur-
ing play, you should rinse the
tooth in sterile or clean water
without scrubbing it or han-
dling it by the root. Your goal
is to replace the clean tooth
immediately into its socket.
The tooth can be held in
position by lightly biting
down, and then an evaluation
by a dentist should take place
as soon as possible.
It is critical that you don't let
the tooth dry out, for if it is
not replanted within a two-
hour time frame, the chance of
tooth survival is low.
So, in response to your ques-
tion, let me say this. I played
high school basketball and
never wore a mouth guard and
was lucky to never have had a
dental injury.
However, knowing what I
know now, I would recom-
mend it. I am sure that I
would get used to it, and con-
sidering the alternative of hav-
ing a tooth knocked out, it
would be well worth it.

Nease's Schaefer

goes from never

having played to

All-State selection

Panthers place six on 4A squad

In the span of a few
months, Allen Schaefer went
from first-time kicker to first-
team all-state selection.
One of a record six Nease
High football players named
to the Class 4A All-State
Football Team, Schaefer is the
only one who had never
played organized football
before the 2006 season.
Also making first-team all-
state for Nease were seniors
James Wilson and Justin
Grant. Seniors Clyde Yandell
and Zach Tronti were named
to the second team. Junior
quarterback Ted Stachitas was
a third-team selection.
Schaefer's late start wasn't a
In 15 games last season,
Schaefer, a senior placekicker,
converted eight of his 11 field
goal attempts, including a
school-record 55-yarder.
Schaefer also booted a 52-
yarder against Bartram Trail
High to help 4A state runner-
up Nease (14-1) secure its first
10-0 regular season in school
A scholar-athlete with a
4.23 grade-point average,
Schaefer was also 46-of-50 on
extra-point attempts and was
one of eight players in the
state who received the Junior
Orange Bowl Award for aca-
"We were amazed at the
whole season," said Schaefer's
father, Gerald.
"Allen never played football
until this year. He was a soccer
player. He never went to any
kicking camps and didn't even
play in the spring game."
Schaefer played varsity soc-
cer for Nease as a junior and
on soccer travel teams since
grade school.
He used to jokingly tell for-
mer Nease kicker Alex Amaral
that kicking a football "didn't
look too hard."
Schaefer proved his point
two days before Nease's 2006
spring game by splitting the
uprights on his first field goal
try from about 30 yards out.
Nease coaches enticed
Schaefer to stick with it, but
did not guarantee him a start-
ing kicking position in the
The Panthers lost Amaral,
who played on Nease's 2005
state title team to graduation,
but returned kicking specialist
Zack Cooper.
Schaefer wasn't expecting to
be anything more than the
backup kicker.
He ended up being so much
After Cooper suffered a hip

injury before Nease's 2006 sea-
son opener, Schaefer became
Nease's kickoff specialist for
the first six games of the sea-
He made his first big
impression in Week 2 of the
regular season by booting a
pair of field goals, including a
43-yarder, on the road against
Sanford Seminole.
He also was 6-of-6 on extra-
point kicks, including a 25-
yarder in that game.
Cooper, Nease's talented
punter, took over the kickoff
chores in Week 7, allowing
Schaefer to concentrate solely
on field goals.
Against Ridgeview, Schaefer
capped a 38-0 victory with a
record 55-yard kick, the
longest ever attempted by a
Nease player.
Heading into the state
championship game in
December, Schaefer ranked
among the best kickers in the
state at any classification.
His 67 total points trailed
only Wesley Byrum (M1) of St.
Thomas Aquinas and Matt
Roddenbery of Lakeland (68).
Schaefer even outscored his
predecessor Amaral, who
amassed 64 total points before
the 2005 state championship
"If you would have told me
last spring that I would be
kicking in the state champi-
onship game [in December], I
would have laughed," said
Schaefer, who plans to study
either mechanical or aero-
space engineering in college.
"It was great to know that
the coaches had confidence in
me. The whole season was a
highlight that I will remember
for the rest of my life."
Gerald Schaefer said
recruiters are not "lining up at
the door" to sign his son to a
'football scholarship.
Kickers, no matter how
good, are often only granted a
partial football scholarship or
preferred walk-on status at
many colleges and universi-
Schaefer said he will be
making an academics-first
decision about college.
Right now, he is leaning
toward attending the
University of Central Florida,
where he may walk on as a
kicker for the school's
Division I football team.
But if he never kicks a foot-
ball again, it won't diminish
what Schaefer accomplished
in such a short time at Nease.
Making first-team all-state
was the cherry on top of the
"It was one more round of
excitement for us," said
Gerald Schaefer.

Panthers guard James Wilson was one of six Nease High play-

Wilson, ranked as the nation's top lineman by several scouting
services, recently withdrew his verbal commitment to attend
Southern Cal and will instead attend the University of Florida.
