Jax gets option for more

parking at JB boat ramp

Up to 100 new spaces for boat trail-
er parking could be added to the pub-
lic boat ramp in Jacksonville Beach if
a state grant is approved.
The city of Jacksonville has an
option from Beach Marine until June,
2008 to purchase 120 acres of
uplands and marshlands adjacent to
the public ramp to improve public
parking for boaters.
David Roach, executive director of
the Florida Inland Navigation
District, Thursday said the city of
Jacksonville plans to submit an appli-.
cation for a $3.5 million grant from
the Florida Communities Trust to
purchase the property to accommo-
date 80 to 100 additional boat trail-
The land acquisition would also

preserve the environmentally sensi-
tive marshlands south of the boat
ramp, he said.
"I think they did a good thing get-
ting the first right of refusal for that
land," Roach said of the county.
"With nine slips committed for tran-
sient vessels permanently reserved as
well as limiting the docks from future
expansion, I feel that addresses the
needs of public access."
The acquisition option was dis-
cussed last week when the FIND com-
mittee voted 7-2 to release an ease-
ment that city officials in
Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach
worry could impact future access at
the public boat ramp.

The Neptune Beach Police
Department will increase securi-
ty at city facilities -including-
blocking one public access to
City Hall during council meet-
The stepped up measures will
use federal grant funds.
The department has installed
security cameras, most of which
are already operational, in several
locations throughout the city in
an effort to protect the city's
Approximately 15 cameras
have been installed at the city
yard, water department, public
works building, at well heads,
city hall and the police station,
according to Police Chief David

All.of the security cameras are
monitored through the dispatch
unit so that dispatchers can noti- officer or anyone else in the
city of a problem, Sembach said.
"We have a lot of irate people
entering city hall," Sembach said
as an example of why the cam-
eras are needed.
Staff will also have to use coded
cards to enter city buildings.
Citizens will soon no longer he
able to enter through the side
door of city hall to attend council
meetings. Instead, only the front
entrance will remain open during
the meeting.
S"It's just to make things safer
for everyone involved," Sembach
The system costs $140,000.

Dick Stratton, left in floral shirt, listens as his friend, fellow Vietnam War POW, U.S.
Senator and Presidential candidate John McCain speaks at a townhall-style gathering
Wednesday at Fleet Landing in Atlantic Beach, where Stratton lives. See more photos on

Arizona Sen. John McCain assessed the
national state of affairs while speaking at
Fleet Landing in Atlantic Beach Wednesday.
The Republican presidential candidate was
visiting friend and fellow Vietnam Prisoner
of War Dick Stratton, a resident at Fleet
"Dick Stratton was an inspiration to many
of us who were in prison [Vietnam's Hanoi
Hilton]. I'm always honored to be in his
company," said McCain, who was intro-
duced by Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton.

A dock ordinance in Neptune
Beach is rocking the boat among
city councilors.
The ordinance, which goes
beyond state guidelines to restrict
dock size, has previously passed
on first reading, but has caused
discord among some councilors.
The ordinance is scheduled for
a public hearing and second read-
ing at Monday's meeting at 6
p.m. at city hall, 116 First Street.

Councilor John Weldon pro-
posed the ordinance to protect
and preserve the Hopkins Creek
Estuary, but Councilor Eric
Pardee has been vocal in his
opposition of the ordinance,
which he says is "subjective" and
Pardee also asked'a representa-
tive from the Florida Department
of Environmental to discuss the
legitimacy of the ordinance and
whether it is necessary.

McCain said he has a warm spot in his
heart for this area, noting he was based at
Cecil Field while on active duty in the Navy
and his family lived in Orange Park when he
"was away."
McCain's appearance consisted of a town-
hall-style talk, followed by questions and
comments from an overflowing crowd.
The event was broadcast on closed-circuit
television throughout Fleet Landing. Later in
the day, McCain made an appearance at a
private function in Ponte Vedra Beach.

FHS to crack down on special assignments

Counting Horseshoes -
Biologists at the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
need help from the public in
identifying horseshoe crab
spawning beaches. Horseshoe
crabs spawn around a high
tide right before or just after a
full or new moon. The next full
moon will be April 2.
Beachgoers are being asked
by the state to report the time,
date and location of horseshoe
crab sightings via a survey at
orseshoe_crab; e-mail info to; or
call 1-866-252-9326.

Overcrowded Fletcher High School will
accept no special assignment students next
year unless the student already has a sib-
ling enrolled in the school.
Principal Dane Gilbert announced the
new policy during a Tuesday night meeting
with the parents of rising ninth graders.
Even those students with a sibling at the
school will need to apply for a special
assignment if they live outside Fletcher's
High's attendance boundaries, Gilbert said,
explaining that no special assignments will
be granted without an application.
Currently Fletcher High has 2,500 stu-
dents and enrollment is getting to the
point where it is "unmanageable," Gilbert
"I apologize but this is something we
have to do," Gilbert said of the tighter stan-
dards for special assignment. "This is best
for the students that are here."

In the past, students who do not live in
the high school's attendance boundaries
have been able to receive special assign-
ment to the school for a variety of reasons.
That has led to overcrowding at the school.
The goal for the school is to reduce
enrollment to 2,100 to 2,200 over the next
four years, Gilbert said, explaining that
school administrators would prefer to see a
gradual reduction, rather than a giant one-
time drop that would create other prob-
lems for the school.
Fletcher High School is a popular school
Gilbert said, with strong parent participa-
tion. He told parents that shortly after he
became principal, he was "amazed" to see
that elections were required to fill the 25
seats on Fletcher's School Advisory
Council. He explained that having more
people interested in serving than there
were seats is very unusual for SACs else-

Vehicle Fair, in which five kindergarten and five first-grade classes
and 200 students participate.

These three guys have
got to be seen and heard
i to be believed! Is this
the future of music?
None other than British
conductor, Sir Simon
Rattle seems to think
so. To quote Sir Simon;
"Time for Three is the
future of music. Three benevolent monsters, monsters of
ability and technique surely, but also conveyers of an
infectious joy that I find both touching and moving. I
would recommend them not only for entertainment value
but also for anyone looking to see how all types of
American music can develop when life and passion are
breathed into it. Simply put, they're a knockout!" With
it's eclectic mix of all types of music, Time for Three
leaps joyfully into the 21st Century.

Surfchair shortage may create wait

photo by JUDY HAM
Guests begin to gather in the back yard of Fouad Zagloul's
house in Sawgrass Country Club Saturday for a fund-raiser ben-
efit arts programs for Beaches children through FOCUS
Cummer's annual Fabfest and through the Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra Beach.

The Volunteer Lifesaving
Station at Beach Boulevard
and the oceanfront still needs
a surf chairs to accommodate
disabled individuals who
want to go to the beach.
Four chairs were available
for public use until last
November but one of the
$1,000 chairs was stolen,
meaning fewer chairs are
available this year.
Donations came in from cit-
izens to help replace the
stolen chair but Gary Fiske, a
member of the board of direc-
tors, said that the Corps is still
short $275.
"We need a total of four surf
chairs. It runs smoother with
four because people are wait-
ing in line," Fiske said. He
added that it would be nice to
have' five given the demand

for the chairs.
The surf chairs were devel-
oped in the early 80's by
Daytona Beach lifeguard Mike
Hensler who wanted to
improve beach access for peo-
ple with disabilities.
At the same time the
Beaches Council of Disabled
Persons, including Fiske and
Jimmy Wilkins of the jack-
sonville Beach Recreation
Department, organized to
assist the handicapped com-
munity access the beach.
"We helped set up handi-
capped parking spots and
made it accessible for disabled
persons to get to the beach,"
Fiske said.
The 70-pound chairs are
Equipped with puncture-
resistant tires that are
designed to maneuver
through soft sand and float in
up to six inches of water.

Last hours with Christ Marina:

subject of church

program open to all

Christ Episcopal Church in
Ponte Vedra Beach once again
is offering a stroll back in time
with its production of "The
Last Hours with Christ"
Saturday and Sunday.
The walk-by drama will be
held at the Daybreak Retreat
Center, near St. Francis in the
Field Episcopal Church at 895
Palm Valley Road, about four
miles west of the Intracoastal
The drama begins as visitors
walk through a replica of
Jerusalem's Jaffa Gate.
Visitors continues on a one-
third mile journey, where they
encounter scenes from the
Bible depicted as people in
Jerusalem 2000 years ago
might have seen them.
There are no professional
actors in the production but
the conviction and faith of the
volunteers "really brings the
story to life," said Catherine
Kashou, director of The Last
The script uses the "spoken
words from the four Gospels"
to tell the story of Jesus' final
days as he enters Jerusalem,
shares the Last Supper with
the disciples, prays in the
Garden in Gethsemane, and
continues on to Calvary.
Kashou said that in past years
she has been impressed with
the audience's "emotional
reaction" as they experience

the production. She describes
it as a Lenten reflection and a
teaching tool for all ages and
all denominations.
"Every year we try to tweak
the production," said Kashou,
who has worked in the enter-
tainment business as an actor,
a casting director, in produc-
tion, and as an assistant to
director and choreographer
Bob Fosse. Permanent
sets and theatrical lighting are
used for The Last Hours. The
reproduction of the Jaffa Gate
adds authenticity'to the pro-
duction since there is a pas-
sage in the Bible prophesying
that Christ would enter
Jerusalem through this gate,
said Kashou.
,The Last Hours with
Christ is scheduled 5 p.m. to 9
p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
There is no admission charge,
but reservations are recom-
mended. Tickets for specific
tour times can be reserved by
calling 285-6127, and they
can be picked up at Christ
,Church office at 400 San Juan
Drive in Ponte Vedra.
People are also welcome, to;
come directly to Daybieak ahnd
join one of the tours, said
Kashou. There will be signs on
County Road 210 directing
people to the entrance, which
has changed since last year.
Golf carts will be available
for those needing assistance.
From 5 p.m. to 6:30 Sunday, a
tour will be given with signing
for the hearing impaired.


On the campaign stop,
McCain mentioned former
Arizona politicians Barry
Goldwater, Morris Udall and
Bruce Babbitt, all failed presi-
dential candidates, and poked
fun at himself.
"Arizona may be the only
state in America where mothers
don't tell their children that
someday they can grow up to be
To an 87-year-old World War
II pilot in the audience at
Atlantic Beach, McCain said:
"May I point out the obvious?
You were a far superior pilot to
me and Stratton. It didn't take a
whole lot of talent to get shot
down. In fact, I intercepted a
surface-to-air missile with my
own airplane."
On a more serious note, he
told the audience that lTuesday's
Senate vote in which 50 of his

colleagues voted for a timetable
to withdraw forces from Iraq
was "one of the biggest mis-
takes" he had seen in his years
in Washington.

"There was no budget for any
planning, it was not included in
any budget. There was nothing
going on. The timeline was very
fuzzy," Roach said.
Ken and Rose Taylor, owners
of Beach Marine, requestedithe
release of the easement to "clear
a cloud from the title."
Roach said the board consid-
ered the concerns of both cities
regarding public access and nav-
igation when making its deci-
The Taylors agreed to provide
a 15-foot-wide navigation ease-
ment and will not extend the
four docks within the easement
beyond their current position.
They also committed to provid-
ing nine slips for visiting vessels.
"We think we did the best we
could," Roach said. "We con-
trolled it for 70 years and never
did anything with it. Absent
that type of finding, it is hard to
say we have to have it."
The easement was put in
place in 1937 to allow com-
merce to bring in big container
ships and to help with mainte-
nance of the Intracoastal
Waterway and public purpose.

Jacksonville City Councilman
Art Graham, who represents the
Beaches, attended the FIND
meeting last Friday and
expressed concern that if a
developer purchases the proper-
ty for "dockominiums," the
public's access to the waterway
would diminish significantly.
Graham said the city of
Jacksonville owns the first 65
feet from the bulkhead and the
Taylors are giving an additional
15 feet for a total of 80 feet of
navigable water.
"Past 80 feet there are no
promises," he said. "That is a
private waterway. The owners
said they don't have any plans
for it but the next one might.

Graham said he urged the
board to allow time to complete
a master plan for the area but
Roach said the board was dis-
couraged that city officials could
not specifically explain how the
release would negatively impact
present or future navigation
"My board was disappointed
that the planning process was
not going on. [The concerns]
just seemed to come up as the
release came up," he said. "They
were concerned that without a
real plan of action, they didn't
feel comfortable holding that

that time."
Roach said the one element
all parties agreed on was the

Eight-year-old Maria Rowe, a
third-grader at Neptune Beach
Elementary School, asked
McCain how he thinks the pres-

McCain responded that the
war has been "very badly mis-

remind you we've had other

"The commission felt the nav-
igation was protected. We heard
concerns for having time to
master a plan for the boat ramp
with an emphasis on boat trailer
parking," Roach said.
Roach said he forwarded a let-
ter to Beach Marine outlining
the requirements needed to sub-
mit the request to the Army
Corps of Engineers, which is the
next agency that must sign off
on abandoning the easement.
A phase one environmental
study of the property must be
conducted to determine if there
is any contamination present.
A survey of the easement
must also be complete to ensure
the land is owned by the Taylors
and not included in the portion
controlled by the city of
Jacksonville Beach. That is
expected to take 60 days.
Then the Army Corps of
Engineers typically takes two
weeks to process the type of

Jacksonville officials have con-

attempt to block the request.

will barf!!!
For years he has been using
this "vision thing" to chase

want to locate here without
ever having once outlined his
"vision" for the residents. All I
know is that so far his visions
have cost the City of Neptune

Now he is trying to start a
civil war among neighbors over
their porch lights. What a can
of worms that would open.
Everyone should drive over
the Kings Road bridge to see all

cease and desist. Your visions
are too costly, too elusive and
too ridiculous.

Purple Power remains strong

Sitting back in Fletcher High's

auditorium emphasizes the

changes that come with time

welcome to Fletcher.
It was more than 30
years since my first
day at Fletcher High School,
but I got my very first official
welcome at the school on
Tuesday when I attended
parent's night for rising ninth
Welcome to middle age.
Sitting in the same audito-
rium where I received a cap
and gown in the '70s to
learn what my daughter
would have to' do to get the
same outfit in 2011 was defi-
nitely a reminder of just
: how fast time has flown.
The decades since gradua-
tion have been busy and,
most of the time, satisfying.
But, despite years of college,
numerous jobs and the for-
tunate company of many
friends and family, I was still
smack back where adulthood
began at Fletcher High
School. It was a true time
Tuesday night, administra-
tors devoted equal time to
touting the many plusses of
a Fletcher education and the
value of students striving
hard to achieve their very
best. As one guidance coun-
selor said, it is important for
students to see the connec-
tion between high school
and their future.
Fletcher parents were
reminded that the very first
grades received in ninth
grade will be a factor in
whether a student gets into
a college of choice. And, as
we're told, the quality of
that college education can
impact career opportunities
for the rest of your life.
So, no pressure, right?
The emphasis on perform-
ance and competition is very
clear these days.
In the old days, as my
children refer to the era
when I attended public
schools, the message was not
as crystal clear. Grades and
scores were important then
but not all important. The

Don't refuse

to recycle

o be honest, recycling
is sometimes a nui-
sance, right? When
I've forgotten to fill the blue
bin and carry it out to the
street, I internalize my
annoyance as I rush to beat
the collection truck, but I'm
still annoyed. The other
day, though, I saw a maga-
zine ad that made me a lit-
tle ashamed of my silent
bellyaching. It was from a
garbage/trash-disposal com-
pany boasting, "Last year,
we recycled enough paper
to save over 41 million
SThat's a big batch of
woodland for the woodmen
to spare. Recycling is appar-
ently paying off big time.
But when I ponder it, I real-
ize there are many kinds of
recycling that have been
going on a lot longer than
the blue bin brigades. Take
leftovers. (Please!)
Whenever someone serves
food that was cooked for a
previous meal, that seems
like recycling. People have
been doing it for centuries,
although I must admit that,
in the home where I grew
up, containing six hungry
kids, there were seldom any
leftovers left over.
Then there are used items
sold or given away. If some-
one goes to Goodwill or the
Salvation Army store and
buys ldthes sdmnebody else
has donated (recycled spats;
anyone?), I suppose it con-
stitutes recycling. When a
person gets a 'second-hand
car, maybe that does also.
Actually, the bloke who pur-
chases a used Harley-
Davidson is getting a recy-
cled motorcycle.
Taken to an extreme, if a
citizen is mugged and loses
his: bankroll to a crook, we
could declare that it's been
recycled. When someone
loses a watch, I guess the
party who finds and keeps it
is recycling the timepiece.
In my view, antique shops
deal almost exclusively in
recycled items. Heck, if an
individual has a heart trans-
plant, the organ is actually
being recycled, isn't it?
So recycling is a many-
splintered thing, but the
kind we purposely practice
perhaps involves mostly
paper, the types used for
reading matter. If I could
get the ear of a sociology
professor, I'd ask "What
would a survey of publica-
tions in recycle bins tell you
about the folks in those res-
I suspect the prof would
say something like, "It
would probably be a fairly
accurate measure of the IQ
of the people there. If they
read, say, the Wall Street.

Toy gun leads to arrest
An 18-year-old female was
arrested Saturday after reported-
ly pointing a toy gun at two peo-
ple, police said.
Jocelyn Ivey Vogel, 18, was
arrested for aggravated assault in
the 200 block of Royal Palms
Drive after two incidents of
pointing a toy firearm at other
drivers, according to reports.
The first incident occurred
when another driver passed
Vogel's vehicle and she pointed
the toy at him, police said.
Later, she was at the drive-
through of a restaurant, and
while waiting for her food,
pointed the firearm at a female
in another vehicle and threat-
ened her, the report said.
When officers informed the
suspect of the charges against
her she replied "I didn't know I
couldn't do that," according to
the report.

Communications specialist
Joseph Breckenridge said a site
review committee selected an
18,500-square-foot site at
1316 Beach Boulevard for a
new full-service postal annex
with retail space. The current
postal facility at 7th Avenue
North has 15,000 square feet.
"It will be a comprehensive
post office," Breckenridge said.
"It will be everything you
expect in a post office."
Breckenridge said he did not
have a projected closing date

for the current facility and the
new location is tentatively set
to open in about a year "if all
goes well.
"There is a lot of environ-
mental due diligence that we
must do, a lot of hoops that
we have to jump through," he
said. "As to when we consum-
mate the deal, it's hard to pre-
dict. I'm not even going to
Breckenridge said the U.S.
Postal Service must meet all of
the environmental require-
ments for the new site and
adhere to the rules and regula-
tions for a new facility.
Plans for an architectural
build-out of the site must be
completed to determine
"what works best for the cus-
tomers and for us," he said.
The contract will then be

awarded to maximize the use
of the existing square footage
and add an elevated loading
dock at the rear of the proper-
ty to roll mail from the trucks
into the post office for sorting.
Ashco, Inc., the property
management firm that main-
tains the Beach Plaza shop-
ping center, offered the U.S.
Postal Service up to 22,000-
square-feet of space and a
"substantial" amount of park-
ing including curbside in front
of the new location.
"We've got a plan and we
are working on realizing that
plan," Breckenridge said.
The current property is
owned by Beach United
Methodist Church and will be
converted into additional
parking for the congregation.

accused Weldon of pushing

Weldon responded that he
is concerned about the "devel-

"It is our job to recognize

Musicians create Easter music

A song titled "Palm Street"
written by two Beaches
Christian musicians express-
es the "euphoria of Palm
Sunday and the horror of
Good Friday," said songwriter
Paul Pinkham.
Pinkham wrote the lyrics
for "Palm Street" and Robert
R. Stevens wrote the
music. The two men
are members of the
Christian band
Turning Point.
The song was
inspired by a sermon
given by Rev. Jerry
Sweat at Beach United
Methodist Church on
Palm Sunday in 200i-1,
said Pinkham.
As he listened to the
sermon, Pinkham said
that he was inspired to
write the song.
"I wrote the first

"Palm Street" is upbeat
and "The Choice is Yours" is
a power ballad, said Stevens.
"My hope for 'Palm Street'
is that it will draw people
into a closer relationship
with the Lord Jesus," he said.
The music is "our way of
being disciples for Christ,"
said Stevens.
Stevens and Pinkham per-
form with Turning Point at
the Friday evening worship

service at BUMC for
Celebrate Recovery, a faith-
based recovery program.
Pinkham and Patti Tuttle
are the vocalists for the band.
Stevens plays guitar, Jim
Woodey and Mike Mehaffey
play the drums. Wade
McGinty is on percussion,
Kevin Dunn plays guitar and
mandolin, and Susan Dunn
is on bass.

Golf is still

Waiting for


to kick in

t's been 10 years since Tiger
Woods first won the
Masters in historic fashion,
a triumph that was supposed
to break racial stereotypes
about what was possible in
the largely white world of
professional golf.
Those who were there
remember scores of Augusta
National cooks, maintenance
workers, servers and others -
almost all African-American
stepping away from their
jobs for just a moment on
that final Sunday to witness
Woods making his way up the
18th fairway. They wanted a
fleeting glimpse of history, to
see with their own eyes as
Tiger became the first black
player to win the Masters, a
tournament as steeped in tra-
dition as the deep South once
was in segregation.
That historic victory was
heralded as ushering in a new
era in which more African-
American kids would be
drawn to the game because of
Tiger's influence.
But here we are a decade
later.and.Tiger.j sJtill thetondl,'
black golfer on the PGA Tour.
On the Nationwide Tour,
which many consider a devel-
opmental league for the PGA,
Tim O'Neal is the only Africa-
American competitor. And
there are no black golfers
playing regularly in the LPGA.
Today, fewer than one per-
cent of those employed in the
golf industry, and that
includes pros, managers and
executives, are black.
At Jackson State University,
Eddie Payton (brother of NFL
great Walter Payton) has
toiled for nearly 20 years
making the school's golf pro-
gram one of the best among
historically black colleges but
has recently had trouble find-
ing African-American high
school golfers worthy of
Tiger Woods may have
replaced Michael Jordan as
the most recognizable athlete
on the planet, and his foun-
dation has awarded more
than $30 million in grants
since its inception in 1996,
but so far none of it has trans-
lated into more faces of color
playing professional golf.
While the National Golf
Foundation's most recent sur-
vey (2003) reveals more than
1.3 million African-Americans
are playing golf, up 47 percent
from just four years earlier, the
growth seems to be taking
place among older individuals
rather than kids.
Edward Wanambwa, editor
of African American Golfer's
Digest magazine, claims the
cost of learning to play the.
sport has continued to be a
major obstacle. "That expense
prevents potential players
from ever discovering the
game and stymies true prodi-
gies on their way to success,"
Wanambwa says on his Web
The ubiquitous Tiger has
certainly raised awareness of
golf in the minority commu-
nity, but it's still not "cool" to
pursue golf; young black ath-
letes continue to gravitate
toward football and basketball
as their best opportunities for
a better education or the rich-
es of professional sports.
An argument can be made
that more minorities will take
up the rather pricey sport of
golf only when more minori-
ties move into the upper mid-
dle class.
That's happening, but at a
much slower pace than was
anticipated when Woods
made his initial triumphant
march through Augusta's sce-
nic vistas in April of 1997.

Struggles on

the mound

lead to a

district loss


Coming off a strong week
in which it won two games
in a Terry Parker High School
Tournament, the Nease High
School baseball team cooled
down in a district game
against Palatka High School
Tuesday night, which it lost
The Panthers got off to a
good start when Jared
McNaught led off with a sin-
gle and Ryan Chiodo fol-
lowed with another hit, set-
ting up back-to-back RBI dou-
bles by Gil Rodriguez and
Justin James.
In the second inning,
Nease kept up is hot streak
when McNaught doubled,
sending Brett Scott home and
extending the lead to 3-0.
"We are starting to hit the
ball better," Nease Head
Coach Lee Geiger said.
"The first couple of innings
we hit the ball as good we've
hit it all year. Our kids are
hitting at a faster rate than
they've hit it all year."
By the third inning,
Palatka got on the board
when Trevor Kennedy dou-
bled, sending Baker Knox
home for the first run of the
game. Nease starter Will Haga
gave up two more runs in the
fourth when Palatka's
Brandon Lee singled, sending
in another run, and then
crossing the plate himself
later in the inning.
Geiger replaced Haga with
Zach Gray, who then gave up
another run.
SBy the fifth, inning, Palatka.,

two-run home run off Gray,
bringing the score to 6-3.
"We are not taking care of

Geiger said. "We have an

"We get 0-2 and throw a
pitch right down the middle,
things like that cost us these
The Panthers had an
opportunity in the sixth
inning to close the gap after
Rodriguez scored and
McNaught, who was batting
3-for-3 at the time, was up to

bat with the bases loaded.
McNaught grounded out,
ending any chance for a rally
by Nease.


The Panthers struggled
from the mound, using four
pitchers throughout the
game and only recording one
strikeout, which was
achieved by James.
"We try to pitch situation-

Another victory for

Nease tennis teams

The Panthers boys and girls
tennis teams continue racking
up victories this season, the
latest over district rival
Fleming Island on Tuesday.
Both squads are now 11-1 on
the season.
The girls team earned a 5-2
win as Taylor Crosby, Dana
Monroe and Lauren Smith all
recorded singles victories.
In doubles play, the Nease
pairings of Crosby/Monroe
arid Smith/Natalie Mayer
notched wins.
In the boys match against
Fleming Island, Panthers No. 1
Tom Blackwell earned a singles
win as did teammates Will
Cheshire, John Clifford and
Josh Kessler.

the season.
Next Thursday the lifters are
scheduled to participate in the

The Panthers had a perfect
game thrown at them by
Bartram Trail pitcher Danielle
Moreau. The Bears pitcher
fanned fanned eight Nease
batters to run her record to 8-0
this season.
Former Panther Molly
Manning, who transferred to
Bartram Trail before the school
year began, had a double and
a grand slam for a total of six
RBIs against her old mates.
The Panthers dropped to 8-9
on the season.

Fletcher 7, Mandarin 3
It's track season at Fletcher
High, and no one is off to the
races faster than the Fletcher
High baseball team.
The Class 6A Senators (11-5)
are a running team if there ever
was one, and Tuesday they ran
away from host Mandarin,
stealing a season-high eight
bases in a key District 1-6A vic-
Fletcher was 8 of 9 in stolen
bases attempts against the
Mustangs, with steals in all but
two innings of play.
"They are getting a good rep-
utation for running and people
know it," second-year
Mandarin head coach Marc
Lassiat said after the game.


Nease High second baseman Mike Brooks tags out Palatka's Ben Wells during Tuesday's game. Following a pair of victories last
week in the Terry Parker Tournament, Nease suffered a 9-4 loss to district rival Palatka.

How common are boxing fatalities?

ZQ question: Dr. Smith,
how commonly does
someone die while box-
Answer: Deaths attributed
to boxing are uncommon.
According to the Journal of
Combative Sport, in the past
50 years approximately 450
people worldwide have died of
boxing-related injuries, 130 of
those in the United States.
This number includes
unsanctioned events.
Statistically, there are several
other sports with higher death
rates, with horse racing head-
ing the list with 128 deaths
per 100,000 participants.
The American Medical
Association reports that deaths
occur at a rate of about 1 per
10,000 professional fights.
According to USA Boxing,
the official governing body for
amateur boxing, a rate of 1.5
deaths per 100,000 fights in
seen in amateurs. Certainly it
would make more sense that


your amateur rate would be so
much lower, for you are taking
into account all ages, includ-
ing children who participate
in boxing.
I recall in 1982 when Ray
"Boom Boom" Mancini fought
23 year-old Duk Koo Kim for
the WBA lightweight champi-
onship of the world. After tak-

ing multiple blows to the
head, Kim collapsed in the
ring and was rushed to a near-
by hospital where a blood clot
was removed from his brain.
Sadly, he too never regained
consciousness, and died four
days later. His mother was so
distraught over this, that she
took her own life three
months later.
A few years ago, a terrible
tragedy occurred when
Fernandina boxer David
Rickman died after being
knocked out during his fourth
professional fight. The 29-
year-old was knocked uncon-
scious during his match, and
never regained consciousness,
dying two days later.
Witnesses reported that after
the knockout punch landed,
that he fell straight back and
landed on the back of his
head. Rickman had been
employed as a registered nurse
in the intensive care unit at St.
Lukes, and left a wife and two

For some unknown reason,
boxing deaths are less com-
mon in the heavyweight divi-
sion, typically more are seen
in the lower weight classes.
Deaths occur for several rea-
sons, including acute brain
swelling, blood clots, and
bleeding on the brain. It
would seem that the greater
punch forces generated by the
heavyweights would make this
class more susceptible, but this
has not been the case.
Some, including former
champion George Foreman
have called for the use of
headgear, as is seen in amateur
boxing, but there has been lit-
tle support of this movement.
Unfortunately, people like
to see a knockout, and head-
gear would reduce these, and
thus perhaps reduce the popu-
larity of the sport. Headgear
would also help to protect
again chronic brain injury
that occurs from receiving
multiple blows over an
extended career.

Kitchen Blues Bar

mississippi-bred bluesman

performs at mojo Kitchen

-.Jamei Cttoin,. who Wvon a Grammy Award
for his 1996 album "Deep in the Blues," will
perform tonight at Mojo Kitchen Blues Bar in
Jacksonville Beach.
Cotton, 72, has a storied career that dates to
the 1940s and includes musical stints in both
blues music and rock.
He is set to perform at 10:30 p.m. at 1500
Beach Blvd. Call 247-6636 for
,ticket details.
Born in Tunica, Miss., in
1935, Cotton fell under the spell '
of the legendary Sonny Boy
Williamson at the age of 9, after : i
hearing "King Biscuit Time," the
harpist's daily radio broadcast ,.
on KFFA in Helena, Ark.
Cotton's uncle took him to
meet Williamson, who was so :
impressed by the youth that he t
immediately took him under his
"The theme song he used to
play when he came on the radio
station, I walked up and played,
it for him. And I played it note
for note," Cotton recalled.
Over the course of six years, ".
Cotton lived, worked and trav-
eled with Williamson, eventually assimilating
many of his signature licks and even inherit-
ing Williamson's band at age 15.
Cotton was unable to keep the combo
together, but the teenage harpist found plenty
of other opportunities on the Memphis blues
circuit, eventually playing and recording with
Howlin' Wolf and Willie Nix. He made his
recording debut in 1953 as a drummer on
"Straighten Up Baby," released by Sam Phillip's
Sun Records.

In 1954, Cotton landed a career-changing
gig with blues legend Muddy Waters. For the
next 12 years, Cotton toured with Waters and
played on many of his seminal Chess sessions.
Cotton's explosive solo on Waters' version of
"Got My Mojo Working," captured live at the
1960 Newport Jazz Festival, established Cotton
as a solo performer.
In 1966, he formed The James Cotton Blues
Band, signing with Verve
Records and releasing four
critically acclaimed albums.
Cotton crossed over into
the burgeoning blues-rock
market, performing at rock
festivals and blues venues
such as the Fillmore in San
Francisco and New York.
SHe opened for the Grateful
'Dead, The Paul Butterfield
," Blues Band and Janis Joplin.
In the 1970s and '80s,
Cotton continued to lead his
S own band, and worked with
'.Johnny Winter and Muddy
Waters again.
Cotton received a
Grammy nomination for his
1986 recording, "Live from
Chicago Mr. Superharp
Himself." Another Grammy nomination fol-
lowed for "James Cotton Live." He finally cap-
tured a Grammy for "Deep in the Blues."
Cotton won a 2002 Handy Award for Best
Traditional Album of the Year for his last
album, "35th Anniversary Jam."
The album is a unique collaboration with
some of today's top blues artists. He will per-
form Saturday in St. Augustine as part of the
Rhythm & Ribs Festival and next weekend at
the Springing the Blues Festival. '

Showbiz is full of heavyweights

Maybe it takes a fat
person like me to
finally say it: Is it
really anybody's business
who is fat, other than the
person with the extra
(We've come up with all
manner of euphemisms for
fat, such as "heavy-set" and
"plus-size." When discussing
this topic, or at least myself,
I'm just going to call it "fat.")
I'm not out to belittle the
obesity issue in America. By
all means, if you are over-
weight and it is adversely
affecting your health, take it
seriously and do what you
must to resolve the problem.
However, for people who
are simply offended by the
sight of fat persons, I hereby
declare that we are here to
stay, and some of us are not
wracked with guilt about the
extra weight. So deal with it.
I often wonder if the con-
stant news coverage of obesi-
ty is truly related to health,

or if some bigots are using fat
as the final acceptable preju-
It's not as though we've
never had large persons in
America. Ben Franklin is
prominent in history books
as an innovator in everything
from the discovery of elec-
tricity to the founding of our
country. Not one biography
mentions anything about
Franklin feeling any guilt
about his weight. On the

contrary, Franklin's life was
probably a prime example of
an epicurean lifestyle.
Show business is full of
heavyweight entertainers --
silent-film comic Roscoe
"Fatty" Arbuckle and patriot-
ic singer Kate Smith, to name
but two. Even if you don't
envy their appearance, you'd
probably be happy to have
the millions they earned.
I recently read a 1989 biog-
raphy of Oliver Hardy (of
Laurel & Hardy fame), titled
"Babe." (Babe was Hardy's
nickname since childhood.)
Hardy loved food and
drink, but he was very self-
conscious about his weight
(by his own estimate, he
once surpassed 350 pounds)
and was extremely hurt
whenever someone made fun
of his size.
After years of self-con-
sciousness, the final saving

Azaleas mean spring

Azaleas and springtime go
Together in Florida, as is
obvious no matter
where you go. Azaleas are clas-
sified as rhododendrons.
There are many, species of
azalea, and those commonly
found here are Indica,
Kurume, Gumpo and
Formosan. They have been
bred for certain variations in
their leaf color and form, their
flower color and type, their
time of bloom, and their har-
diness. There are so many to
choose from that you should
have some ideas of what you
want before you go shopping.
Common hybrid colors are
white and shades of pink, rose
or coral. A few native azaleas
are available here, and typical-
ly they are in colors, of yellow
and orange, and coral. Native
azaleas are looser and a bit
more straggly than hybrids
and also bloom for longer
periods. They can probably be
obtained by a good native
plant nursery.
Azaleas are a good, inexpen-
sive choice for yards that need
landscaping plants. There are
so many to select from, and
you can make beds out of
them, use them in foundation
plantings, or select the larger
ones to camouflage an
unwanted sight. Most varieties
are evergreen so even in win-
ter you have the landscape
effect of a finished product.
Generally speaking, azaleas
can grow just about anywhere
in north Florida. However,
they do not like the salt spray,
so if you are a beach resident
and receive the spray, even
during the winter when it can
blow inland 3 miles, consider
this factor. Never plant them
on the north or east side of
Sthe yard; perhaps you have a,
protected spot that does not
receive direct spray, such as
the south side, in which case.
you may be lucky, but be will-
ing to take this risk.
Here are some other factors
to consider when thinking
about the selection of an azal-
ea grouping for your land-
If salt spray is not an
issue, you have sun exposure.
choices that include the east,
southeast, south, and if a
canopy of trees exists in your
western exposure, you could
grow them there as well.
Generally, they like partial
sun/shade and do not like
dense shade or full sun all
Larger- leafed varieties can
handle more summer sun
than the small-leafed ones:
Likewise, the dwarf varieties
will not be happy in a full sun
location, while the standard
ones have a better chance.
Drive on Penman Road near
Atlantic Boulevard to see
some beautiful azaleas (and
while you're at it, notice the
sun conditions where they
The roots of azaleas are
close to the surface of the soil
naturally, so the roots react
very quickly and very badly
to heat, cold and standing
water. They like to be planted
higher than how you find
them in a pot. I have told my

callers that when planting
not only make the hole twice
as wide, but about an inch or
two higher than the height of
the football.
When you have it in the
ground and the hole is again
filled in with dirt, tug the
plant up a few inches, as
though you were tugging a
pigtail or cowlick, and then
repack the soil. Believe me, it
When we have gullywash-
ers, the water doesn't puddle
in the plant's roots, but waters'
it and then rolls off. Azaleas
hate having wet feet!
S: azaleas are acid-loving, so
they need a soil pH of about 6
or lower. If you have a stucco,
coquina, or brick exterior,
plant the bushes at least 6 feet
away from the house because
these surfaces leach lime into
the soil, increasing the alka-
linity of the soil.
The azalea will turn yellow,
not produce nice blooms and
will probably die if planted
where the pH is too high. So
select the right spot. If oaks
and pines do nicely in your
yard, then the azalea will as
well, since all of these are acid
lovers. If you live by the
woods, chances are you are
also good candidates for the
azalea. However, if you are in
a new neighborhood where all
the natural growth was bull-
dozed away and then some
form of "soil" was brought in
to level the yards, you have
no clue what its pH might be.
Have a free soil test done at
the Cooperative Extension to
see if your soil is in the cor-
rect range for azaleas. If sand
was what the builder brought
in, you'll have a problem.
Because azaleas need an
acidic soil and because they
are shallow-rooted, they must
be mulched all year with a
minimum of 4 inches of
mulch. Mulching with pine
straw and oak leaves makes
the azaleas very happy
because those forms of mulch
are acid in nature. Other
mulches are OK, but rubber
mulch cannot be used. You do
not need to replace the mulch
every year, just add to it.
Don't forget about this impor-
tant "must."
Your fertilizer should be
acid-based, such as one com-
monly called "azalea, camel-
lia, gardenia blend." The azal-
ea should be fertilized after it
blooms, again in early June to
help it get through the hot
summer, and then again in
September or early October.

little color. The color consists
of shading on canvas with an
occasional flower or other
shape located in the vast space

The small canvasses are
arranged close together or in
groups to form a whole, and
interesting concept and an

ire. The ancients thought
it one of the most basic
elements of the universe.'
Along with earth, air and
water, they believed there
was nothing else. Fire IS
ephemeral; its sometimes evil
nature leading to yet another
belief duality.
When controlled, it's man's
faithful servant.
Uncontrolled, it somehow
warps into one of the globe's
ultimate destroyers, mystical-
ly endowed by the gods with
the power to cleanse.
Mix the above and a pact

"Ghost Rider," yet another
superhero from the incredible
Marvel Comics stable.
Derided by critics as juve-
nile and merely another
showcase for CGI (computer
generated imagery), you'd
think this $120 million pro-
duction would be shunned.
So far, it hasn't been, and
this reporter believes with
good reason. It's entertaining
and good fun, especially with
Nicolas Cage in the title role!
The story begins with a
teenage Cage ("National
Treasure," "Fast Times at
Ridgemont High") making
plans to run away with girl-
friend Eva Mendes ("Hitch,"
"2 Fast, 2 Furious").
So far, their love has taken
a back seat to the needs of
Cage's dad and the teen's
own career choice as a motor-
cycle-riding daredevil. Cage's
dad isn't opposed to young

"Grumpy Old Men") does a
decent, though not award-
winning, job. Cage, as usual,
is excellent, and there's defi-
nite chemistry between him
and Ms. Mendes. Everyone
else associated with this PG-
13, 105-minute flick is at
least adequate.
In the end, good triumphs
over evil. Don't turn your
nose up at many of its "in"
jokes, and you'll definitely
enjoy "Ghost Rider."
Despite what many critics
say, it's a workable, feel-good
movie and as simple enter-
tainment, you'll find it pleas-
ant! .

By day, Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Gage) is a die-hard stunt rider,
but at night he becomes a bounty hunter of rogue demons in
the action-adventure "Ghost Rider."

love lie's dying of cancer.
When Cage discovers his
impending loss, he signs a
life-saving pact with the
devil. He's also forced to give
up Mendes.
Though to snatch Cage's
soul the devil must keep him
alive, other than curing Dad's
cancer, he has no further
obligation to him. Known
also as The Father of All Lies,
I the devil soon arranges for
Cage's dad's death in a
motorcycle crash. The youth
swears vengeance and the
devil decides that if Cage
completes an almost impossi-
ble task, he'll release him
from the pact. His job: kill
"Blackheart," the devil's own
son. He's broken free from his
father and decided to make
Earth his sole domain.

The job is daunting, espe-
cially considering Blackheart
(Peter Fonda) has three pro-
tective minions with super
powers surrounding him.
Suddenly, Cage discovers
he has a decent chance of
keeping his soul. It seems the
devil has endowed Cage with
the ability to change into a
skeletal bike-riding fire
demon, but only in the pres-
ence of evil.

If you get The Leader,

You are about to get MORE.

Coming April 4, your

Beaches Leader or Ponte Vedra Leader

will contain American Profile magazine

American Profile is a weekly, four-color
magazine that celebrates hometown
American life. It's a heartfelt reminder
of what's good about who we are
and the places many of us still
call home. American Profile
is about places where
drive-in movies, county
fairs, and simple acts of
neighborly kindness are more
than fond memories. They are wo-
ven into the fabric of everyday life. It's
about Sunday afternoon picnics, 4th of

July parades where people aren't ashamed to
shed a tear when the flag passes, and about
doing what's right-just because it's
right. American Profile is about this
country's roots, and the people
and places that still make
America great.

theH re

Women make most decisions about new homes

custom home is a joy.
But even when you
think you can get what
you want when you embark
on building your own home,
house plans often fall into the
rut of familiarity or builders
lean toward what they tradi-
tionally build.
Having built two custom
houses and purchased and
renovated several others and
in my business, I've learned a
thing or two about homes
over the years.
Here are eight of the top
things on my wish list that
I'd like to see builders consid-
er when building new and
custom homes.
1. Fit the owner. A house
has to function for the way
the owners live, not the way
trends dictate. Even if formal
dining rooms aren't as com-
mon as they used to be, if
customers have the furniture
and the desire for a formal
dining room, don't talk them
out of it.
2. Washable paint. Every
surface should be a cleanable
surface, and that starts with
using cleanable paints for
walls. Many national paint
brands now carry washable
flat finishes, which builders
prefer, so now there's no rea-
son to have dirty walls in a
house anymore.
3. Improved ventilation.
Most new homes today don't
have four-way ventilation and
that can prevent adequate air
SWorse. still is the all too
common non-operational

keep a tablecloth from slip-
ping, purchase a nonskid mat
that is normally used to keep
rugs from slipping. Lay the
mat on the table and cut with

two cabinets, and, instead,
j place them on their own wall.
Include a wash sink with a
spray handle as well.
... 6. Bathroom upgrades. Kids

S-. install tall vanities even in
Children's bathrooms. Install
wall inset shampoo boxes in
every shower and two sham-
poo boxes in the master
S shower. Make sure garden and
jetted tubs have a pull out
spray handle for cleaning.
