Councilors


debate


city 'vision'


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Neptune Beach City
Councilors debated over the
"vision" of the city at a meeting
Monday during a discussion
regarding a motor vehicle repair
service on Florida Boulevard.
-The owner of the property at
2100 Florida Boulevard, repre-
sented by attorney Mack
McCuller, has requested to open
an AAMCO Transmission Repair
Store. However, vehicle service
repair is only allowed in the zon-
ing district located along
Atlantic Boulevard.
The council has approved an
ordinance on second reading to
amend the land development
regulations by special exception
for a certain zoning district, but
only after careful examination
and debate.
Neptune Beach resident
Denise Wallace addressed the
council at the public hearing,
explaining that the area transi-
tions into a residential area.
. "I'm very concerned that this
is a very intensive use," she said.
However, McCuller sited
examples of other businesses in
the area and explained that a
motor vehicle repair service
would be in keeping with some
of the other uses. For example,
there is also a motor sales busi-
ness, an air conditioning repair
business and a pool business in
the area. He has also pointed
out that the property was for-
merly used for a boat repair busi-
ness.
"I think it's a somewhat rea-
sonable request in an area that
has...established itself commer-
cial," said Mayor Dick Brown.
Vice Mayor Harriet Pruette
agreed stating "I don't want to
see another run-down, vacant

FEMA grant



on way to JB


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Federal funds will be used to
purchase storm shutters to
replace weather-worn sheets of
plywood used to protect sever-
al government buildings in
Jacksonville Beach from hurri-
cane winds, city officials said
Monday.
The Jacksonville Beach City
Council voted to reject bids
from various companies spe-
cializing in storm window
installation after receiving
word that a grant application
submitted to FEMA nearly
three years ago was finally
approved.
City Manager George Forbes
,Monday said city officials
applied for a federal grant in
April 2004, after the city was
repeatedly threatened by
storms.
Crews installed what Forbes
termed "cumbersome" ply-
wood covering over hundreds
of windows at City Hall, the
police and fire stations, the
Operation and Maintenance
facility, water plant and the
pollution control plant.


The poor condition of the
wood prompted city officials to
seek proposals for replacement:
shutters and get them in place:
before the storm season begins.
"After the big storms [of
2004] we applied to FEMA [but]:
nothing happened for over two:
years so we decided we'd go
out for RFP's [request for pro-:
posals] and see what we could;
find," he said.
"As soon as we put those out
we found out from FEMA that2
they will give us a grant."
The city will receive
$147,867 in federal funding
and will contribute $49,289 fol
a total of $197,156.
Forbes said the award will
require the city to change its
specifications to meet or
exceed the existing standards:
in place in Dade County.
The standards require the
new shutters to have a 20-year
guarantee and be able to with-
stand winds up to 140 mph.
"If we get 140 mph winds,
the shutters may hold up but
the building won't," he said.
Hurricane season begins
June 1 and ends Nov. 30.


Electric customers have option to

connect to underground services


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A representative from
Beaches Energy. Service gave- a
presentation Monday *to the
Neptune Beach City Council
detailing a list of customers'
options if they want to connect
to underground electric ser~ic-
es.
BES is involved in a $2.5 mil-
lion project to place electric
lines east of Third Street under-
ground. Joe Stonecipher, the
project engineer, explained
several options for customers
who wait to connect to under-
ground electric services.
Customers can hire a private
electrician to connect to the
underground electric, they can
have an electrician install the
conduit and BES will complete
and maintain the connection
for a one-time fee of $200 (this
option only applies to services
that are 200 amps or less) or a
homeowner can get a permit
and connect themselves,


although this option is not rec-
ommended because the home-
owner would be required to
meet certain electric codes,
according to Don Ouichley,
1"flirector of utilities.
However, these options are
only for customers who wish to
connect to the underground
electric. Customers are not
required to make any changes
to their current service.
Stonecipher emphasized that
if a customer currently has
overhead electric service and
they do not want to connect to
underground, .that is their
choice. BES will hook them
back up to overhead electric
when they are finished work-
ing. If a new service pole is
required, the customer will not
be charged.
A customer will be only be
responsible for the costs if they
have overhead electric and
want to connect to the under-

Easter date for Blues Festival may be blessing in disguise


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The 17th annual George's
Music Springing the Blues
Festival falls on Easter weekend
this year.
But that's a blessing in dis-
guise, according to the event's
longtime producer Sam Veal.
"It's going to be a holiday
weekend which means there is
going to be a lot of folks in
town," said Veal Tuesday at a
press conference to unveil this
year's festival poster and music
lineup.
"This is only the second time
in 17 years that Easter has
[coincided with the festival]."
Veal said the annual three-
day festival will not interfere
with the decades-old Sunrise
Easter Service, set for 6 a.m.
April 8 at the Pavilion.
The annual sunrise service,
which dates to the early 1950s,
is sponsored by the Beaches
Ministerial Alliance.
"It will have a good impact
on the sunrise service. It is
actually going to save them
money because we'll have the


infrastructure already in
place," Veal said.
"Everything will be very
seamless."
Veal said the festival was
originally planned to. incorpo-
rate gospel artists into the
Sunday lineup. Instead, the fes-
tival and the sunrise service
will remain independent of
each other, with festival organ-
izers supplying chairs for the
sunrise service that normally
draws worshippers in the hun-
dreds.
Veal said the blues music
lineup represents multiple gen-
res and generations.
"We believe that this year's
lineup is the strongest, most
authentic blues lineup we've
ever had," he added Tuesday.
The 2007 lineup features
Grammy-nominated artist Tab
Benoit, Michael Burks, Little
Charlie & the Nightcats and
most of the original band
members who played blues
icons Muddy Waters and
Howlin' Wolf.
The festival will also help
preserve a piece of Beaches his-


tory by raising funds to bene-
fit the Rhoda L. Martin
Cultural Museum in
Jacksonville Beach.
"This museum was the first
African-American school house
for children here in the com-,
munity," Veal said.
"A lot of hard work has
helped make it a reality to save
the schoolhouse and make it a
living part of the history and
heritage of Jacksonville Beach."
Former Jacksonville Beach
Mayor Bob Marsden said his
wife, Jackie, once worked as a
substitute teacher at the former
Jacksonville Beach School for
the Colored.
Longtime Beaches resident
and avid surfer Melissa
Humber was also selected as a
beneficiary of this year's festi-
val. Humber suffered serious
injuries in a motorcycle acci-
dent and is now in a wheel-
chair.
Veal said funds will be raised
to purchase a wave ski that will

A little 'league

PV Rotary members making a

difference in Philippines


Bruce Vorsanger, a member of the Ponte
Vedra Rotary Club, is busy in the
Philippines spreading some American
Rotary love and getting very little sleep.
After spending 24 hours on a plate,
Vorsanger and a team of Rotary members
arrived last week in the Philippines to
learn more about the country, the culture
and some of the Rotary's humanitarian
projects to help its people.
In the first week of his three-week stay,
Vorsanger said in an e-mail that he's
already seen mountains of poverty in and
around the city of Manila.

Vorsanger said New Manila Heights, a
part of the city the team visited at the end
of the week, was by far the poorest, mak-
ing other areas seem like "the Marriott."
But with each poor village visited,
Vorsanger has helped make someone's life
a little better.
So far in their travels the Rotary team -has I
helped give free prescriptions, vaccina-
tions and medical care.
And with long days and early mornings
that start with the crow of a rooster,
Vorsanger said the team "is tired. . but
doing great."

There's a first time for everything.
Oh, and it's their team they can cry if

Been there... done that.

With every passing St. Johns County Commission meeting it seems
that Commissioner Ron Sanchez reveals another facet of his work
experience.
Two weeks ago, in a discussion about fire services, Sanchez provided
some helpful information to the board that came from his 14 years of
experience as a volunteer firefighter,
Earlier in the year, Sanchez was given the task of
investigating management options for the St.
Augustine Amphitheater.
Why? Because he was in the entertain-
Sm.ff ment business as the owner of a talent
S- agency for more than 12 years.
S CHIEF Before that he worked for a bank for
about 8 'ears.
Before that he was in the Coast Guard.
He was also a St. Augustine Beach city
commissioner and he worked in codes
So enforcement for the city.
Oh, and he also writes music and some-
times plays drums or guitar or piano for
some local bands.
Now he works as a state certified
residential contractor a talent he
discovered after building his own
home.
So the question on everyone's
mind is: What's next for this guy -
a reality TV show?

the parkway, delaying the planned open-
ing.
He said once the asphalt work was done,
stripes would be added and traffic would
be allowed to use the northbound lanes of
the parkway, as planned.
Opening was anticipated before night-
fall Tuesday.
Although the traffic pattern did not
change Monday, a ceremony celebrating
the change was held, nevertheless.
The ceremony included David Shoar,
sheriff of St. Johns County, John
Rutherford, sheriff of Duval County, as
well as Barbour and, others.
The 3.2-mile section of road to be
opened crosses the St. Johns-Duval county
line, so both sheriffs were invited to event
Monday morning.
Nocatee Parkway, expected to be com-
pleted in late summer, will be a four-lane
highway between the Intracoastal
Waterway and U.S. 1
Nocatee is expected to bring about
30,000 residents over the next 25 N. >,.

Blues: Title sponsor celebrates 10 yrs.

waves. The cost i% eslimiatjd
around $5,000.
"She's a good friend of ours
and a great gal trom the
Beaches," Veal said. "We're
going to do our part to see how
we can help her spring the blues
and get her back in the watei.'
George Hines, owner of
George's Music, said it is great
to be celebrating 10 \ears as the
event's title sponsor.
"We are feeling very honored
and privileged to be in this long.
It's such a positive force that we
would like to see it continue to
grow and prosper," Hines said.
"I can't thank you enough for
getting me involved 10 years
ago."
Marsden also thanked Veal for
making good on his promise to
develop the blues testival into
the city's signature event
"He said he would never
move it out of lacksonville
Beach and he has kept that
promise" Marsden said. "He's
made it a first class event with
first class talent. It's an out-
standing success."
Mayor Fland Sharp said was
skeptical when Veal originally
proposed the idea of a blues tes-
tival.
"I can remember that very
evening. I said 'blues fest, yeah
right'. I've know Sam since we
were in grade school so I said [
took it all with a grain of salt,"
Sharp said. "He kept talking and'
we said he's actually serious
about this."
Sharp said in the festival's
early years, downtown
Jacksonville Beach was a blight-
ed area not suited for the thou-
sands of families 'that now
migrate annually to the ocean-
front.

Rich suffered a verbal beating Tuesday when
citizens called him an embarrassment to the
county for comments he made in a workshop
session last month.
During a budget workshop Feb. 21, Rich
said he was angered when watching the
Columbine school shooting on TV, because
police officers were waiting for the SWAT
team instead of immediately entering the
school.
Rich said the scene made him want to
shoot a cop in the head and go in himself.
First responders should not wait for backup
before saving someone from imminent dan-
ger, he said.
Local law enforcement survival groups and
others took offense to his comment and filled
the county auditorium Tuesday in protest.
"I have seen a lot of commissioners come
and go," said Carl Burchfield, a resident of St.
Johns County for 71 years.
"But I have never seen one embarrass St.
Johns -County like you have, sir," he said to
Rich.
Rich wrote a letter of apology that was sent
to media outlets and was published in The
Leader Friday. He has said his comments were
taken out of context.
But many at Tuesday's meeting did not
accept his excuse or apology.
"I cannot think of a context in which that
statement would be OK," said Robert
Humphrey.
Several persons spoke in defense of Rich,
saying he is known as a brutally honest com-
missioner who has kept more promises and
accomplished more than many commission-
ers in the past.
Clara Cowan, president of the Ponte Vedra
Beaches Coalition, called it a "sad day" in
which a sound bite is "more important that
accomplishments."
Mary Kohnke of Palm Valley and Ellen
Whitmer of Northwest St. Johns County,
both well known for their criticism of county
government, also commended Rich on his
honesty.
"Mr. Rich, you are one of those brave souls
that America so desperately needs," Whitmer
said.
Kohnke, a former St. Johns County
Commissioner, followed her with a popular
biblical lesson: "He without sin cast the first
stone."
Still, many were unwilling to put down
their stones.
Some called for Rich to step down as chair-
man and others wanted him to resign as
commissioner altogether.
Several speakers were parents or other rela-
tives of police officers who were killed in the
line of duty.

would not want to spend too
much time," he said. "Sam and
the Blues Festival started help-


ing that change. We're real
proud to have it here in
Jacksonville Beach."


Vision: Long-range plan


Continued from A-1
building in this area."
However, more debate
ensued when some councilors
were concerned with the
"vision" of the community
and felt that the business
would not be in keeping with
what they were trying to estab-
lish for the area.
"Perceptions become reali-
ties," said Councilor Fred Lee.
"I just don't want to be fill-
ing buildings just to be filling
them."
Lee also added that the city


has so much planned develop-
ment pending that it will not
look the same over the next
few years.
Councilor John Weldon read
from a prepared statement
regarding the "long range plan
for Neptune Beach," asking fel-
low councilors "...will we sim-
ply accept a cobbled-together
hodgepodge of a community
because this Council lacks the
discipline to develop a vision
of the future and then stick
with it?"


Electric: Case by case


Continued from A-1
ground service or if a they
want a larger electric service.
However, there are still
some issues that need to be
addressed, according to
Stonecipher.
For example, some residents
cannot connect underground
if their meter box is located
more than 10 feet from the
corner of their house the pri-
mary reason is that the fur-
ther along the wall of the
house, the. more likely that
the box could be fenced in,
limiting access, according to
Ouchley.
But, BES will work with
these customers on a case by
case basis to see if the prob-
lem can be solved.
City Manager Jim Jarboe
also said that he would like
the city to look into the possi-
bility of a program for people
who want to hook up to the
service but cannot afford it.
Customers who live in a
duplex, for example, could
have to pay $400 to install the
conduits because there are
two service panels or they
could hire an electrician to do
all of the work and then BES
would make the connections.
The goal of the project,
according to Stonecipher is to


eliminate storm damage as
well as make the area look
more aesthetically pleasing.
He told the council that BES
is hoping that the area will
resemble First Street as -your
going towards Jacksonville
Beach.

Ben Rich

Through tears, some of them told their
painful stories to Rich, who kept his eyes
down and never appeared to look them in
the eyes.
Rich offered no comment during or after
Tuesday's meeting.
During a brief break after public comment,
a member of the audience stepped up to the
commissioners' desk and asked Rich why he
did not look any of the speakers in the eyes.
The man said he found Rich's behavior
deeply offensive. Rich said he was taking
notes.
His comments in the Feb. 21 workshop
were made during a discussion of county fire
,services and the request for more staff.
Rich said he felt that perhaps the fire and
rescue department were over staffed.
He referred to an incident near his son's
home where five fire trucks and vehicles
responded to a home that didn't appear to be
on fire.
Rich said he thought that was excessive,
but most of the speakers Tuesday said the
county should never skimp on public safety.'
"If it [an emergency situation] ever hap-
pened to you, you won't think we have too
many you will thank God we have
enough," Burchfield said to Rich.
In response to all the criticism of Rich,
Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson suggested
the board take a workshop on leadership.
She said the board should learn how to
more effectively work together and with citi-
zens.

Selva Marina atote eto actor

Selva Marina asset to community


To the editor:
After reading several letters
in The Beaches Leader this week
concerning Selva Marina CC, I
feel compelled to respond.
The suggestion we turn the
land over to Atlantic Beach for
instance. First, if this was done,
it would take money from
Atlantic Beach's tax roll, and
wouldn't they be looking for a
place to recover that tax
money from guess where -
the tax payers of Atlantic
Beach? Second, if you had
inherited a piece of property
(as Selva did more or less) and
you decided to sell it for any
reason, shouldn't you be able
to do that? Clearly, my answer
is YES.
Those of us who have been
members and supported Selva
for many years certainly
should have a say about what
happens to Selva; after all it is
owned by stockholders. We
love Selva and want to keep
SMCC operating for the enjoy-
ment of all who choose to be a
member and enjoy golf, ten-
nis, swimming and exercise, as
well as the friendships that
have been made over the years.
I sympathize with some of
the views presented by Selva
Linkside residents, and as one
writer said "buyer beware" -


however, it seems to me those
opposed to selling the land fail
to accept the reality of the end
result. If we don't sell the land
to upgrade the club, the club
will close and the land will be
sold and guess what, you will
get development there any-
way, probably on all of it.
SMCC does not wish to make
anyone unhappy we are try-
ing to keep the club open to be
enjoyed by members from all
of the Beaches communities, as
well as outside the area. If you
are not a member, you may
not be aware of how much the
dining facility is utilized for
weddings, business meetings,
and private parties, during the
week and almost every week-
end throughout the year.
In closing, I look at SMCC as
an asset to the entire Atlantic
Beach Community, the same
as Russell Park, Howell Park,
Atlantic Beach School, Bull
Park and The Sea Turtle. We
may not use all of these facili-
ties but they are there to be
used. All of these enhance the
value of property in Atlantic
Beach "YES, YOURS AND
MINE!"

'No respect, no respect at all'


acing a lame-duck presi-
dency and a belligerent
Democratic Congress, a
desperate President Bush
hired a medium to summon
the only spirit who could
understand him: Rodney
Dangerfield.
"Here's the problem," said
Dangerfield, as he loosened
his tie and twisted his neck
from side to side. "You got no
respect, Mr. President, no
respect at all."
"But Pelosi and Reid gave
me gifts after my State of the
Union Address."
"Pelosi and Reid are trying
to soak you, Mr. President.
They gave you'toys to play
with while you're soaking a
toaster and a radio."
"But I presented ideas that
we could address in a biparti-
san manner, Rodney."
"Like your health-care
ideas? Sure, common-sense
market incentives would
broaden coverage and drive
down costs. But your ideas
are already dead oh arrival.
Democrats are out to get you,
Mr. President. If you went to
a prize fight, a session of
Congress would break out."
"What about my energy
plan, Rodney? I called for a
20 percent reduction in gaso-
line usage by 2017. We could
achieve that by shifting to
ethanol and other alternative
fuels."
"But ethanol is made from
corn, Mr. President. The
amount you're talking about
would require 30 million
acres of farmland. You really
think the Democratic left will
allow that much soil erosion
and pesticide use? Mr.
.President, if the Surgeon
General were a Democrat,
he'd tell you to smoke!"
"Well, how about spending,
Rodney? I submitted a budget


TOM PURCELL
COLUMNIST
plan that goes into surplus
after five years. I called on
Congress to cut legislative
earmarks the line items of
pork Congress slips into bills
at the last minute in half."
Rodney laughed so hard,
his bulging eyes nearly
popped out of his head.
"Sorry, Mr. President, but I
can't imagine Democrats giv-
ing up the goodies now that
they've finally gdt their mtiffs'
on the spending levers1'.The 'r'
Democratic pork trough will
be so full, it'll have stretch
marks. And the only way
Democrats will play with you
is if a hunk of tenderloin is
dangling around your neck."
"But the Democrats said
they'd work with me. Nancy
Pelosi has been downright
flirtatious with me."
"But Mr. President, she
called you the other night
and told you to come over,
that nobody was home. You
went over to see her and
nobody was home."
"But the Democrats need to
show legislative accomplish-
ments if they hope to retain
control of Congress in 2008.
Surely they'll compromise


somewhere."
"Like the war in Iraq, Mr.
President? Most Democrats
voted to authorize it in 2002
when it was popular, then
they beat the war horse back
to power when it became
unpopular. You think they're
going to stop riding that
horse now? Mr. President, if
you swallowed a bottle of
aspirin, Democrats would
offer you cocktails and
encourage you to get some
rest."
"But so much is at stake,
Rodney. We can't play politics
with the war in Iraq. We need
to resolve it now or face far
more severe consequences
later. And there are other
daunting problems here at
home Social Security,
Medicare that will only get
worse the longer we wait to
solve them."
"Mr. President, what's best
for the country is not as
enticing to Democrats as
what is bad for you. If your
tie was on fire, Democrats
would put it out with an
,;axe,'-'" .' ,",-* .. '' -'" .: -.-,r" ,
S'"W'hat can I do to'wii back
the people's respect so that
Congress will listen to me?"
"How should I know, Mr.
President? I'm a comedian.
And there's nothing funny
about your presidency. Gallup
says your approval rating is at
36 percent. Your Republican
colleagues, worried about
2008, are jumping ship. A
CBS poll says that 60 percent
of the world doesn't respect
you. The fact is, Mr.
President, that -"
"I'm getting no respect, no
respect at all?"
"Yes, Mr. President, not
even from your dog, Barney.
The way things are going for
you, Barney's favorite bone is
your arm."


To the editor:
Your report: "The Family
Goes All Solar" (Beaches
Leader, Feb. 28, 2007),
describes a program that has
merit if only a few home-
owners install solar units.
They would give us an inter-
esting and needed demon-
stration of the idea. Done on
a larger scale, without this
experience, makes the tax
supported subsidy question-
able. We should know what
we're doing.
In our community, we
have a significant number of
homeowners who may be
doing as much to lower
power plant emissions, and


they do it without recog-
nition. Their roofs are fully
shaded by trees which lower
their power demands on a
warm day and consume
C02, the supposed villain in
this case. The trees would
have to be cut down if the
owners elected to go solar
and collect the subsidy.
If we had solar homes, our
electricity supplier would be
required to have power avail-
able for them from dusk to
dawn and the dim hours that
precede and follow them, all
day on rainy days and for
quick response when dark
clouds come by. We depend
on our electric power and


any thing less than full serv-
ice presents health and safety
problems.
The cost of this readiness
involves additional operating
costs, the use of modern gen-
erating equipment, and the
consumption of expensive
fuel. It's hard to see how the"
trickle of power that the
homes send back on the rare
days when we have a blue
sky all day, could pay for all
of this. Let's see.
If we have money to
spend, I'd rather plant some
trees.

Feline

may lead to

'cat-astrophe'

It's a looming cat-astrophe.
So say some veterinarians,
and I quote from a relevant
article published last December
on the Gainesville Sun's Web
site: "...researchers have deter-
mined that an actively repro-
ducing single female cat can
begin a reproduction chain
resulting in 4,000 cats within
three years."
Holy cats! What if there were
half a dozen of such momma
mousers in one neighborhood?
With 24,000 of their offspring
eventually yowling love songs
on the back fences, ear plugs
could become standard bed-
time equipment.
Evidently some parts of our
towns have too many cats
presently. It's become so bad
that a non-profit, mobile ani-
mal hospital is now offering
reduced-fee spay and neuter
(sterilization) services to "Stop
feline overpopulation in
Jacksonville and South
Georgia." The River City
Community Animal Hospital
(RCCAH) goes on to point out,
"Over 7,000 cats are euthanized
(put to death) each year in
Jacksonville and South Georgia
due to the reproduction of
unaltered cats." Tragically, that
happens because only a rela-
tively small proportion of ani-
mals that enter shelters are .
= adopted or entered into'a no-
kill shelter. ,* ,
At this writing, the RCCAH is
not handling dogs, although
that's reportedly planned for
June 2007. I reckon the cats are
more romantic and are breed-
ing in greater numbers. A
friend used the cat service and
is very satisfied with the out-
come. Her felines will not be
producing any kitty litters. At
its Web site, the hospital pro-
vides the dates and locations
where its "Spay Days" are to be
held, along with plenty of
other information. Cat owners
can also call 904-733-8123.
It's unfortunate that the
mobile service wasn't available
many years ago when our
Neptune Beach neighborhood
was overrun by stray cats. One
resident (long since moved
away and deceased) would feed
them, which, of course, caused
them to multiply faster.
Apparently they checked into
the bridal suite (crawl space)
beneath the residence of the
"cat feeder," and later an over-
powering odor permeated the
area. One of the felines had
died there. That effectively
ended the free Meow Mix buf-
fet.
My family once adopted a cat
(long-lived but now demised).
Rather than inflict her on other
area residents, we had her
spayed, declawed, etc., and
made her an in-house cat. She
had an amusing habit of doing
somersaults and other sorta
nutty moves, so my soit, Eric,
dubbed her "Cashew." She
spent lotsa time by the win-
dows, flirting in frustration
with the four-legged suitors
outside.
Maybe that's why she was
nuts.

There's a new law enforcement response

for proper handling of mental illness


everyone recognizes the
white and green striped
patrol cars with the
bright gold star of the St.
Johns County Sheriff's Office
as our deputies are seen
answering your calls for serv-
ice and driving on their way
to complete their daily
rounds.
In addition to patrolling
hundreds of neighborhoods
countywide, the Sheriff's
Office will soon include
deputies and corrections offi-
cers who have received spe-
cial training in assisting citi-
zens and fellow officers in
the proper handling of the
mentally ill.
Known as the Crisis
Intervention Team (CIT), our
Agency will soon participate
in this community effort
that includes law enforce-
ment, community leaders
and mental health profes-
sionals. We are working
together towards common
goals including safety, under-
standing and service to those
with mental illness disorders
who happen to encounter
law enforcement personnel.
Sheriff's around the state
are facing a very serious
issue. Jails have become psy-
chiatric holding facilities.
Our officers working in cor-
rections will find basic men-
tal health training available
through this program to be
an asset for them when
interacting with someone
who is not stabilized on
medication. Continuing
education through this
essential program helps keep
everyone involved safe and
reinforces the need for empa-
thy and compassion for
those with psychiatric dis-
abilities.
Jail is not treatment; jail is
the result, for some, due to a
lack of treatment. To
become more aware of the
acute needs of these individ-

GUEST COLUMNIST

uals, some of our deputies
and corrections officers will
soon be volunteering to par-
ticipate in Crisis
Intervention Training, which
involves a weeklong educa-
tional seminar on interacting
with those in crisis, includ-
ing verbal de-escalation tech-
niques and empathy build-
ing.
This program was devel-
oped in Memphis, Tennessee
in the late 1980's and has
been widely adopted around
the country. As information
and success stories began to
circulate, word reached a
group of communities in our
state who formed the Florida
C.I.T. Coalition. The organi-
zation studied the results of
other communities, shared
their own experiences and
created a vision for statewide
implementation of a Crisis
Intervention Team in
Florida; based on the core
principles of the Memphis
model.
We have been invited by
the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office to share training facil-
ities and instructors for our
key CIT personnel.
Cooperation with other law
enforcement agencies across
Florida will be an indispensa-
ble component of our local
Crisis Intervention Team


program.
As we look to the future of
our pilot program, we hope
to be able to more effective-
ly:
Recognize signs and
symptoms of mental illnesses
and co-occurring disorders
Recognize whether those
signs and symptoms repre-
sent a crisis situation
De-escalate mental ill-
ness crises
Know where to take con-
sumers
Learn about jail diver-
sion options
Know appropriate steps
to follow up
Learn how to problem
solve with the treatment sys-
tem
Our Agency recognizes
that resources are ever
shrinking and people spend
great lengths of time without
treatment, without medica-
tion that they require to
assist in symptom manage-
ment, causing them to live
with impaired judgment that
can result in negative con-
tacts with law enforcement.
Mental illness is an equal :
opportunity disease that
afflicts all'segments of our
community. Law enforce-
ment has a moral and social-,
obligation to deal with men-'
tal illness more effectively
because so many of the folks
we deal with are afflicted.
We want to help the greatest..
number of persons coping
with mental illnesses and
substance abuse while keep-
ing our citizens, law enforce-.-
ment and corrections officers,
safe and secure in the per- ,
formance of their vital roles ::
in our community. I salute '
the volunteers who make the
commitment and invest
their time to help those in
need through their participa:-':
tion in the Crisis
Intervention Team.

Consumer confidence edges up, but housing makes big picture volatile


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
.Relatively cheap gas prices,
a record high stock market and
loiv unemployment all con-
tributed to a rise in Floridians'
consumer confidence by two
points to 91 in February, four
points higher than at the same
tiTe a year ago, University of
Flqrida economists report.
'Consumer confidence
anyong Floridians has been
volatile the last couple of
m nths," said Chris McCarty,
director of the survey research
center at UF's Bureau of
Economic and Business
Research.
"There are competing forces
acting on the consumer, and it
is till unclear how these will
pl'y out in the long term. On
thg positive side, gas prices are
stir relatively low, although
thev are headed back up. The
i..k market hit inother-
,....-.-..-.-....-...


record high in February,
although it is down from that,
and employment remains solid
here in Florida, with the
unemployment rate quite low
compared to previous years."
The rise in consumer confi-
dence was broad-based, with
increases in four of the index-
es' five components. The
biggest gain was in perceptions
of personal finances now com-
pared to a year ago, which rose
four points to 84. Three com-
ponents rose three points:
expectations about personal
finances a year from now to
95; expectations about U.S.
economic conditions over the
next five years to 86; and per-
ceptions of whether it is a good
time to buy big-ticket items to
109. Expectations about
U.S.economic conditions over
the next %ear remained
unchanged at 83.


"On the down side is hous-
ing, the focus of everyone's
attention," McCarty said.
"There is no question that we
are seeing deterioration in the
sub-prime loan market -- high-
er-interest loans to consumers
with weak credit histories --
and that inventories are up
and sales of both new and
existing homes are down.
Many people ended up buying
homes they could not afford."
The question remains
whether the effects will stay
within the housing sector,
McCarty said. Although hous-
ing constriction by itself rep-
resents less than 10 percent of
the U.S. economy, the effect of
housing can move into other
sectors, he said.
Since the last, recession in
2001, consumer spending,
which is iespo.nsible for about
two-thirds -ift Ill ( S,. economic


activity, has been fueled direct-
ly by equity withdrawals from
housing, he said.
As people's homes appreciat-
ed in value, they felt comfort-
able arranging cash-out refi-
nancing, home equity loans
and home equity lines of cred-
it, McCarty said. But as sales
have slowed and homeowners
drop their prices to sell, the
value of homes in many mar-
kets is declining, making con-
sumers less comfortable with-
drawing equity from their
homes, he said.
"The big questions are how
much will consumer spending
pull back due to the decline in
real estate prices, and if other
areas of the economy, such as
business investment and
exports, can offset a possible
decline in purchasing power
from consumers," he said.
NcC.irt said lie expects the


effects on housing to spill into
other sectors of the economy
by May or June. "This should
be more pronounced here in
Florida, given the enormous
gains in the value of Florida
real estate," he said. "It has
much further to fall than other
states."
Many people are looking to
the Federal Reserve Board for
some relief to this situation,
McCarty said. There is a sense
among some economists that
the Fed is overly concerned
with inflation and will lower
interest rates before the end of
spring, traditionally the most
active season for selling
homes, he said.
But McCarty said he believes
it is very unlikely that interest
rates will fall in the near term,
considering recent data on
inflation and statements from
board members., i ;; i _


The research center conducts
the Florida Consumer Attitude
survey monthly. Respondents
are 18 or older and live in
households telephoned ran-
domly. The preliminary index
for February was conducted
from 466 responses. The error
rate is plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buy-
ing patterns by measuring the
mood of consumers toward
purchasing. Although other
economic indicators also pre-
dict buying patterns, con-
sumer confidence tends to be
available sooner. The index is
benchmarked to 1966, so a
value of 100 represents the
same level of confidence for
the year. The value of the
index is in comparing changes
over time rather than lboking
at an isolated month.

Hot Browns served at Beason's



annual Kentucky Derby parties


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNfST
West Beaches resident Diane
Beason says she can hardly
remember a time when she
didn't "love to cook."
A Louisville, Ky., native, Beason said
that one of her earliest memories was
helping,
g her
grand-
parent's
cook-
^ COOKS make
biscuits.

Beason likes the whole creative
process of cooking. She and her hus-
band, Carl, enjoy entertaining friends
at their home.
"We have so many wonderful friends
and entertaining is a good way to get
together," she said.
"There really doesn't need to be a
reason. If it's Tuesday, that's a good
enough."
Beason has a closet filled with boxes
of decorations, tablecloths, pretty nap-
kins, napkin rings, and assorted charg-
ers for entertaining.
She also owns several sets of dishes,
including classic white china and clear
dishes, which gives her many ways to
set a beautiful table for informal gath-
erings or formal dinner parties.
In the kitchen, Beason'uses her

many cookbooks for ideas but almost
never follows the recipes. She likes the
challenge of creating dishes that are
uniquely her own and rarely relies on
measuring ingredients.
In fact, she said she owns a measur-
ing cup but "would be hard pressed to
find it."


Beason helps' out and also cooks at
American Legion Post 233 in Palm
Valley, where she and her husband are
members.
One of the meals she prepared for a
dinner there was Shrimp and Grits.
Fresh shrimp saut6ed in a butter and
olive oil with a little white wine are
served over grits in this recipe. The fla-
vor and texture of coarse stone-ground
grits are the best choice to comple-
ment the shrimp.
The recipe serves 6 to 8 and sauteing
about a pound and a half of shrimp at
a time works well. To serve a large
group, Beason recommends sauting the
shrimp in several batches for the best
results.
A Kentucky Derby Party is a yearly
tradition at Beason's home. While she
suggests that everyone should see the
famous race once in person, Derby par-
ties at home are more fun in her opin-
ion.
Like all Kentuckians, Beason has a
special set of mint julep cups printed
with the words to "My Old Kentucky
Home" to be used for the occasion.
Kentucky Hot Browns are a tradition
at Kentucky Derby festivities. The orig-
inal Hot Brown was made by the chef
at the historic Brown Hotel in
Louisville. These are so good that the
only reason to cook a whole turkey is
to be able to make Hot Browns, said
Beason.

D.D.S. of Ponte Vedra.
Dr. Blankenship and his
staff offer Cerec, a process
which allows them to pro-
vide various impressions,
porcelain crowns and

one patient visit. He is the

ty. Cerec is a respected
service that this office has made available. The
philosophy of his practice, says Dr. Blankenship, is
to help each patient with the best solution to the
individual's dental problem.
Dr. Blankenship's practice of general, cosmetic
and implant dentistry is located in Sawgrass Village
Circle, Suite 23, in Ponte Vedra. Members of his
staff have been together for 29 years, providing
that comforting service that comes from a well bal-

native of Columbus, Ohio, moved into this estab-
lished practice and has been providing exceptional
care for all of his patients. He states his specialty is
"patient comfort and care."
His enthusiasm for his profession is obvious
when you meet him. "I enjoy helping people,
especially with cosmetic dentistry. W'e don't just
change smiles, we change lives," he says.
Many executives come to him for his advice and
assistance to enhance their "executive smile."
Professionals want to present the best impression
when speaking, giving talks or other leadership
endeavors. Making a good impression is a career
essential. "They come to us for help, and we can
provide a new smile in a couple of weeks!"

is proud to offer assistance to those who may be

aches, ringing in the ears, jaw pain, and other such

dentistry. Dr. Blankenship can investigate these
symptoms and provide relief in many cases. This
is just one more example of looking at each patient
as an individual and solving the mystery that will
give relief and long-term comfort. Persistent
symptoms can be permanently relieved.

Nease, Fletcher seniors in All-Star game


FROM STAFF
Seniors from Fletcher and
Nease high schools were
among those taking part in
last Friday night's first annual
All-Star soccer game featuring
players from Duval and St.
Johns counties.
Organized by Senators head
coach Mike Levine, the game
was one last chance for players
to don their school colors in a
soccer uniform. Teams were


selected by area coaches for
both boys and girls contests.
The matches, played at
Patton Park, were friendlies
but still featured some intense
competition.
Representing the Class 4A
state champion Panthers were
Kyle Ringeisen, Ian Svilokos
and Ryan Corning. Fletcher
All-Stars included Sam Allen,
Kwame Ajavon and Richard
Huggett.

FROM STAFF
Fletcher .High's Alex Schanen
won the 3,200-meter race in
10:10 at Saturday's Saints
.Open track meet at
Sandalwood. Schanen's. per-
formance was one of the lone
bright spots for the Senators
boys team, which finished in
11th place in the 12-team
event.
On the girls side, Fletcher's
Megan Bary won the 1,600 in


5:42 to earn the only first-
place finish for the Senators.
GIRLS LACROSSE

The Panthers suffered their
first loss of the season during
last weekend's Sebastian
Classic-tournament.
In the victory over Vero
Beach St. Edwards, Jess
Gimbel, Bailee Hedstrom,
Anna Egelin, Madi Fehling and


Allie Lancashire scored goals.
In its second game on
Saturday, Nease (7-1) fell to

Fletcher 3, Flagler Palm
Coast 2
The Senators boys team
remained undefeated with last
week's victory. Fletcher's No. 1
player, June Condez earned a
6-4, 4-6, 10-2 victory.
Teammate Tanner Bell won
6-3, 6-2 and Josh Franks won
an 8-5 pro set.
Doubles matches were
unable to be completed due to
darkness. Fletcher's match
against Ribault on Thursday
was postponed because of rain.
The Senators were slated to
put their 5-0 record on the line
Tuesday against Forrest.
SOFTBALL
Orange Park 9, Nease 2
The Panthers were held
scoreless until the bottom of
the seventh inning Monday
night against the Raiders.
After being shut out for six
innings, Clare Wamsley got
Nease on the scoreboard with
a two-run home run in the
bottom of the seventh.
It was Wamsley's second
round-tripper of the season
but it proved too little as
Orange Park rolled to victory.
Ashley Ceithaml took the
loss for the Panthers (4-5), giv-
ing up nine runs on eight hifs.
The Panthers also committed
three errors.
Nease managed just five hits
in the ballgame including
Wamsley's blast and a double
off the bat of Victoria
Rosenblum.
The Panthers were set to
back in action Tuesday night
when they hosted Atlantic
High.

FISHING



Warmer water under Pier brings whiting


Wahoo took center
stage last week along
the ledge. Bottom
fishermen are still hammering
the sea bass on the inshore bot-
tom. Slightly warmer water
under the Jacksonville Beach
Pier has finally turned the
whiting on. Lots of pompano
in the surf at Daytona and
moving north.
Capt. Jim Holt with Fred
Bridges and David Kelly on the
"Hunt 'n' Fish" trolled about
70 miles offshore over the
weekend and caught three
wahoo, the largest a 60
pbunder. All were caught on
plugs. They also caught eight
jacks and several dolphin.
A short period of bottom
fishing produced lots of beelin-
ers and triggerfish.
Capt. William Goodling with
friends Steve Swan and Ron
May took the "Venus Baby" to
the tuna patch over the week-
end and caught two wahoo to
50 pounds. They also picked up
a 30-pound king, a 16-pound
dolphin and 30 triggerfish.
Capt. Dennis Young on the
"Sea Dancer" with the Damian
Blaine party last week fished
the amberjack hole and pulled
up one eight-pound snapper, a
12-pound grouper and 80 sea

bass.
Ed Puttbach and friends on
the "Little General" brought
home a 21-pound snapper and
65 sea bass.
Inshore, Capt. Mike Morris
and friend John White caught
30 trout to 21 inches and a pair
of flounder near Sisters Creek.
Larry "Fishman" Finch with
his wife Murphy spent Monday
and Tuesday fishing the surf at
Daytona Beach with sand fleas.
They caught their limit of
pompano each day along with
a cooler full of whiting.
Larry took his grandson
Logan sheepshead fishing on
Saturday. They caught 15
sheepshead near Blount Island
using live fiddlers.


Format change for GJKT


The AT&T Greater Jackson-
ville Kingfish Tournament
announces a major format
.change for the 2007 event.
Starting this year, anglers
will be grouped into two sepa-
-rate divisions as determined
by the boat's Length Over All
Sas per the state registration
:documents, and will be com-
peting for equal prizes.
For the first time in compet-
itive kingfishing, anglers fish-
ing in the 23 Class (boats
measuring 23' 11" or less) will
be able to compete for a sepa-
rate and equal prize structure.
: John Patrich, chairman of
Jacksonville Marine Charities,
-said, "It has become more dif-
ficult for the smaller boats to


remain competitive and the
JMC Board decided it was
time to recognize and com-
pensate the two different boat
divisions equally."
To achieve this equality the
JMC Board voted to increase
the cash portion of the prize
structure by 50 percent.
Another big change is that
the Ultra Class (boats measur-
ing 24 feet and longer) and
the 23 Class will be competing
in an aggregate format, which
is designed to reward skill as
well as luck.
Boats are allowed to weigh
one fish.per day and the total
aggregate weight over the two
days of fishing will determine
the winners.


The largest sheepshead
reported caught last week was a
12-pounder caught at the jet-
ties by Jeremy Alverez.
Capt. Dave Sipler, with Hick
Wilson, caught five red bass to
26 inches, 12 speckled trout
and a flounder.
James Gergley, Mike
Tandarich and Matt Hamilton
on the "Head Hunter"
anchored along the jetties last
Monday and caught ten
sheepshead to seven pounds,
five red bass, five trout and a
pair of flounder.
On Tuesday James and Mike
tried the Sisters Creek area and
released 18 trout to 18 inches
and caught five red bass to 26
inches along with two flounder.
Jacksonville Beach Pier man-
ager Faye Cotner reports plenty
of action last week. The water
temperature went into the 60s
and the whiting responded.
Spencer Brogden got things
started on Thursday when he
caught 80 whiting and a drum.
Each day after that he left the
pier with his cooler full of
whiting. Rick Perez had 50
whiting in his cooler on
Thursday. Stan Fryslie brought
a 25-inch red bass over the Pier
rail, the first red of the season.
Canal guide John Dyrssen,
with Dwight Hibbard and
Candy Olsen, worked the canal
last Wednesday for eight trout
using live shrimp. All had to be
released, of course.
Capt. George took his
"Mayport Princess" about 18
miles offshore last Saturday
and caught hundreds of sea
bass and beeliners. They had to
throw back over 100 snapper
that were too small.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" last Saturday with
David Marone and Phillip
Smith, reported a catch of nine
red bass, eight ringtails and two
sheepshead.
Al Wiltshire aboard
"Sharkey's Den II" with friend
John Burroughs, fished along
the beach about five miles
north of the Vilano Inlet in 33
feet of water and caught 50
whiting. Al said they found big
whiting all along as they drift-
ed from 17 to 35 feet of water.

OPINION


Taylor, Scobee stay



put, Brady departs



and Koetter arrives


rg'o refute that old baseball
saying, nice guys don't
always finish last. Sooner
or later, good things may come
their way.
That comes to mind with the
weekend announcement that
Kyle Brady has signed a fat con-
tract with the New England
Patriots after eight years of ser-
vice with the Jacksonville
Jaguars. Brady had hoped to
end his career in Teal and
Black, and he just about man-
aged to do that.
Brady's career as a tight end
went into such decline from
under-utilization during the
past four seasons it was almost
a retirement.
At 6'6", 280 pounds and very
intelligent as well as mobile,
Brady looked like a coach's
dream as a pass receiver and
was just that until Tom
Coughlin left.
Jack Del Rio
often talked of
Kyle's ability to Fred
block as though belong
that was the he's aS
only thing num- part
ber 80 was good pa
for. Jaguars
The Del Rio as Jimr
years for this Tony E
Penn State grad
were as frustrat- Mark B
ing for Brady, a here
former New York recer
Jets star, as they
were unproduc-
tive in terms of scoring -
unless he gets credit for excel-
lent blocking on scoring drives.
Now with New England,
Brady is reunited with head
coach Bill Belichick, who was
the Jets assistant head coach
when Brady was there from
1995-98 before he opted for
free agency and eventually
signed with Jacksonville.
A former first round draft
pick, Kyle was a popular player
and New York and with the
Jaguars in recent years. Under
Coughlin, the tight end put fig-
ures on the scoreboard himself
rather than paving the way for
others.
Now Brady has signed a two-
year deal with the Patriots
worth $5.3 million, which
includes a hefty signing bonus.
Under the new contract, Brady
will make a base salary of $1.2
million next season and a ros-
ter bonus (if he makes it
through training camp without
being cut) of $100,000. In
2008, he is scheduled to make a
base salary of $2 million, but as
always, NFL contracts contain
no guarantees.
These figures aren't bad for a
35-year-old who was asked to
take a pay cut to stay with the
Jaguars,

ly warranted. He starts his fifth
season with the Jaguars after
putting up some outstanding
numbers especially on touch-
backs.
Only the three-year exten-
sion for star running back Fred
Taylor stole the headlines from
from Scobee's new deal and
Brady's departure.
Retaining Taylor's services
;' and a healthy financial increase
was not only way overdue, but
;ON it should put an end to the
bickering about his future. Fred
Taylor belongs here; he's as
ady much a part of the Jaguars' tra-
dition, brief though it may be,
tten as anyone including Jimmy
sks Smith, Tony Boselli or Mark
k some Brunell, all heroes of the recent
a clear past.
t really Lost in the shuffle of free-
arts agents and new contracts for
veteran players, however, is the
en on big news and anticipated arrival
s of new offensive coordinator
ation Dick Koetter, of whom miracles
are expected (we hope).
s from Koetter, formerly of Arizona
hlin State, was hired in January and
ere not since then has apparently spent
wel- a great deal of time appraising
appre- the Jaguars offensive tools, such
the as they are. He's the third
aff, the offensive chief for Del Rio in
xcep- four years. Will his hire be the
g ace charm?
mmy Koetter (pronounced
hose "Cutter," so he might be a kid-
it took der who can make us laugh,
iunk too) lost no time in praising
quarterback Byron Leftwich. He
knows where his bread is but-
ve tered.
"The thing that stood out
meeting. about Byron to me is how
-e way, much he understands the game
ver and how he's got a passion to
s- play the game," Koetter said.
