Pedestrian crossings along SR A1A

need fixing, Beaches Watch told


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A part-time Neptune Beach resident has
asked the city council to consider
installing a yield to pedestrian sign at a
busy intersection and wants to create a
"pedestrian corridor" to make certain
areas more pedestrian friendly.
Pat Hazouri asked the council at a
recent meeting to consider a yield to
pedestrian sign for the intersection at
Atlantic Boulevard and Third Street.
Hazouri is from Vermont and lives in
Neptune Beach part-time where, she said,
she bicycles everywhere.
Hazouri also spoke about the issue at a
Beaches Watch meeting Wednesday,
explaining that the established lights and

referring to a meeting with a state

representative She said they spent an
hour and a half observing traffic problems
at the intersection and on Third Street.
Hazouri said she noticed the problem
because she is an avid bicyclist and has
had trouble crossing Third Street, espe-
cially at the Atlantic Boulevard intersec-
tion she said.
She said she has also observed and spo-
ken with other people who have had dif-
ficulty crossing the street.
Hazouri said she plans to take the issue
on at a city and state level, but also sug-

1 AB commissioner
suggests rehab as
alternate solution
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
The Atlantic Beach police
department is seeking harsher
punishment for people in the
"world's oldest profession."
The city of Atlantic Beach
Monday passed a resolution to
request more vigorous prosecu-
tion and more severe punish-
ment for prostitutes.
The police department has
been responding to complaints
about prostitution, specifically
in the Mayport Road area, for
several .year.. buit son'e of the
prostitutes are getting out of jail
within as little as 60 days,
according to Police Chief David
Thompson.
Thompson previously
requested help from the
Commission to pursue an


avenue that would allow the
department to seek harsher pun-
ishment for prostitutes, especial-
ly since a third and subsequent
violation is a felony and can
potentially carry up to a five-
year prison sentence.
It is also a felony for a third
and subsequent violation for a
person soliciting prostitution,
Thompson said. Commissioners
made no mention of the prosti-
tutes' customers.
Thompson said his goal is to
get the attention of the judges
and state attorney because the
department is having problems
with prostitution.
City Attorney Alan Jenson
spoke with State Attorney Harry
Shorstein and recommended
that the city draft a resolution,
according to Thompson.
However, not all of the com-
missioners were in agreement
with the resolution. It was
approved 3-2 with

Both lifeguards safe


After swimming miles in the dark Atlantic Ocean


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Training, athletic ability and persever-
ance helped save the lives of two off-duty
Tackson\ille Beach lifeguards forced to
swim miles to shore after an attempt to
retrieve a kite boat left them stranded in
chilly Atlantic waters. ; ,
Just after 8 p.m. Saturday, police'
responded to the Red Cross Volunteer
Lifesaving Station at the foot of Beach.
Boulevard regarding a person missing in
the water.


Lifeguard Joe' Weisflog told police at
the Lifeguard Station that he and fellow
lifeguard Glenn Znamirowski entered the
ocean in a kayak around 3:30 p.m. at
30th Avenue South to retrieve a kite boat
floating in the waters just east of the
access.
SWeisflog said the pair reached the kite
boat and secured it to the kayak before
waves and strong ocean currents started
forcing them further out to sea.
SA member of the Corps since 2003,
Weisflog swam back to shore for help
with Znamirowski floating with the craft


miles away from shore in 67-degree
waters.
Once the kayak began taking on water,
Znamirowski decided to try and swim to
shore as well.
Weisflog swam for approximately two
hours before he reached the shore at 8th
Avenue South. Once on land, he ran to
the Lifeguard Station to summon help
for his colleague, police reported.
Search and rescue units from the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Air Unit, the
U.S. Coast Guard and the lifeguard crews
were dispatched to aid in the search.


"We had lifeguards posted at all of the
beach accesses and patrolling the beach,"
Capt. Charles Bond said Tuesday.
Clear skies and building lights from
the shoreline likely served as a guide for
Znamirowski to follow as he swam for his
life, Bond said.
Bonds said the station headquarters is
also equipped with a special peg light
that signals an emergency.
"We all know as lifeguards that it is a
good reference to see where they are," he
said.

A San Juan Drive resident told Ponte
Vedra Municipal Service District (MSD)
trustees Monday that parking on San Juan
has become a problem.
Contractors have been leaving trucks
and other vehicles along the two-lane
road, leading to congestion and safety
concerns, Jack Schmidt told trustees.
The most,recent incident took place
Friday, when traffic had to go around a
truck and loader that were parked along a
curved portion of San Juan Drive from
about 9:45 a.m. to 3 p.m., he said.
"This is the third time in the last six or
seven months that this has happened,"
he told trustees. "It is a safety issue."
Deputy Tommy Aman of the St. John's
County Sheriff's Office said he has
received calls asking where vehicles can
go and where contractors can park.
He said contractors cannot park within
70 feet of a stop sign because it becomes a
traffic hazard. "We need to make sure
contractors are aware of the parking ordi-
nance before they start," Aman added.

Chia Pets, not just a plant
Spring gardening is
not just for those with a
green thumb. Even the
worst gardeners can
sprout a Chia Pet.
They've blossomed into
a fun activity for all ages
instead of a memory of
the past. Chia Pets p
the cornerstone of
cheesy TV commercials
- are still on the mar-
ket, alongside some of
the most complex tech-
nologically advanced
toys and remain popu-
lar. Now they are avail-
able in modern charac-
ters such as Shrek and
Donkey, Thd Simpsons,
Spiderman and many A
other famous faces to .
appeal to today's demo-
graphics. (Don't worry,
the classics are still
available too, including ".
the popular Chia Pig,
Cow and Bunny.) The
first Chia Pet was dis- .
tribute in 1982 and -
was only available as a . .
ram. The budding : .'
buddy has come a long ;
way.
For anyone who was-
n't blessed with a green
thumb, a Chia Pet is a
good alternative to the
common houseplant disaster. The three-day plant comes in a complete
package, including the planter, seeds and drip tray for only a few dol-
lars. The excitement and anticipation of a new sprouting friend is free.
The good news is that the package comes with enough seeds to enjoy
the Chia experience up to four times. You just follow the simple
instructions included, place your Chia in sunlight and it will be
blooming before your eyes.
Who needs a pesky plant with specific watering, sunlight and prun-
ing guides that may take weeks to sprout, when you can grow a fun
friend in three days.

Guana a natural classroom


by DAVID M. LEVIN
STAFF WRITER
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
Secretary Michael W. Sole told
seventh graders from Alice B.
Landrum Middle School he
was looking for his replace-
ment.
He wasn't talking about an
immediate replacement, rather
someone who in a number of
years would continue programs
such as the one that drew the
Landrum students to the
Guana reserve Tuesday -
DEP's Learning in Florida's
Environment (LIFE) program.
Sole met with the students at
the Guana Tolomato Matanzas
National Estuarine Research
Reserve south of Ponte Vedra
Beach for an educational field
trip.
The seven advanced science
classes from Landrum took part
in the "estuary interactions"
field trip, where students could
learn how fish adapt to their
environment and what role
estuaries play as nurseries for
marine organisms.
They also explored the
exhibits at the Guana's
Environmental Education
Center.
As part of the morning's
activities, Sole and the students
studied organism samples from
the Guana dam.
"Hands-on educational
opportunities like this promote
environmental stewardship at
home and in the classroom,"
Sole said.
"Through continued sup-
port, like the Gulf of Mexico
program grant, we can contin-
ue to motivate students to
explore natural Florida and
encourage them to become the
environmental scientists of
tomorrow."
Emma Baxley, 12, said she
has been to the estuary before
but still loves to come and
explore the marine life.
"I was here three times last
year," Baxley said. "I went
through the museum and the
water testing. I based my sci-
ence project on the water test-
ing."
The visit by Sole was the first
in a five-leg tour across the
state that will allow him to
work with students first had in


classroom settings such as the
one at the Guana.
In addition to helping with
the morning's lessons, Sole
talked about DEP's preliminary
approval of an $85,000 grant
from the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's Gulf of
Mexico Program to establish a
pilot environmental education
project on the Gulf of Mexico.
The grant will be used to to
study educational practices
that can more effectively reach
and inspire underserved and
underrepresented groups to
continue to pursue studies and
careers in science.
Angie Golubovich, an envi-
ronmental educator at the
Guana, said classes such as
Tuesday's are held four days a
week at the Guana, educating
youngsters from numerous
school about the. estuary and
marine life in the Guana.
"For most of them, this may
be the first time they will go
out to an estuary," said
Golubovich.
"We never know what we
will get [from the seine pull or
plankton tow]. There are a vari-
ety of crab, fish and shrimp. It
is different each time."
The LIFE program consists of
field-based, environmental-sci-
ence education programs
throughout the state of
Florida. There are nine pro-
grams existing, and the DEP
seeks to establish more.
Each existing program,
formed by a partnership
between the DEP and a local
school district, is designed to
increase student achievement
in the sciences while giving
training to their teachers.
The Landrum students said
they really had fun looking at
the Guana marine animals.
"It was pretty cool," said
Charley Reis. "You could not
see them until you were look-
ing [closely] at them."
Some of the curriculum for
the advanced science classes at
Landrum Middle School focus-
es on environment and ecolo-
gy-
Donna Jawor, one of the
teachers who accompanied the
students Tuesday, said she
hopes to have all the science
classes in the seventh grade
participate next year.

voting against the resolution.
"This is the world's oldest pro-
fession. I don't think this is
going to work. There have to be
some other ways," said
Commissioner Sylvia Simmons
at a meeting Monday. She men-
tioned the possibility of rehabil-
itation programs or counseling,
but made no specific sugges-
tions.
Mayor Don Wolfson dis-
agreed, stating, "I don't think
it's up to us to change behav-
ioral patterns. That's not what
we're trying to do. We're trying
to help the police department."
The city has been working to
"clean up" Mayport Road and
has addressed areas such as
code enforcement and
improved landscaping and
maintenance, for example.
"Prostitution is a blight on
our neighborhood," said resi-
dent Michael Hoffman.
Because the police depart-
ment has had difficulty with
enforcement, many offenders
are released back into the com-
munity and cause other prob-
lems, Thompson has said.
Thompson said that many
prostitutes also have drug and


alcohol addictions and are often
linked to other crimes.

Beaches and then airlifted to

Bonds said Znamirowski
spent an estimated six to
seven hours in the water and
swam three to five miles in
the cold dark waters to reach

"They were simply con-

shore. They didn't know if
there was somebody on it and

"They were acting in good
faith."
Both men were treated for
hypothermia. Weisflog was
treated and released Saturday
and Znamirowski was released
Monday. Bonds said the men
managed to escape serious
injuries from the schools of
jellyfish still washing up on
shore.
"If they were stung, I'm sure
it was the last thing on their
mind. In the dark and water
that cold, jellyfish turn into a
very minor nuisance," he
said. "They are very fortu-
nate."


PGA Tour sets up history program


FROM STAFF
The PGA Tour and its Players Championship
are seeking golf-enthusiastic volunteers, local
residents who want to learn more about the
Tour and its showcase event.
The volunteers will serve as ambassadors for
the Players and the Tour while acting as
greeters and guides under a program called the
TPC Storyteller Volunteer Program.
The new program falls under the purview of
PGA Tour Charities, Inc., the organization
through which Players proceeds are funneled
to First Coast charities. Since 1977, when the
event moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, more than
$24 million has been contributed through
PGA Tour Charities, including $2.7 million in
2006.
"With so many exciting changes here at TPC
Sawgrass, both to the facility and for The
Players in May, we are seeking special 'story-
tellers' to help bring the history of The Players
and the PGA Tour to life," said Billy Dettlaff,
the TPC Network's national director of golf.
The Players, played primarily in March
throughout most of its 33-year history, moves
this year to May. Competitive rounds will be
held May 10 to May 13.
The storytellers, Detlaff said, "will become


part of a very special place and event in this
community's history. I'm confident they will
enhance the overall experience of fans and
golfers through their knowledge and passion
for the game."
Storytellers will serve as greeters and guides
starting the week before The Players. They also
will be involved in the launch of the TPC's
new clubhouse and assist at functions before
and after tournament week. Following the
event, volunteers will have a daily presence at
the TPC and also have access to a rewards pro-
gram that will offer, among other benefits, golf
opportunities.
"Our new clubhouse will be filled with the
history of The Players and our great organiza-
tion through the display of a wide array of
original art, artifacts, trophies and multimedia
presentations," said Dettlaff.
TPC Sawgrass is in the final weeks of a 13-
month project that saw improvements in The
Players Stadium Course and also construction
of a 77,000-square-foot Mediterranean
Revival-style clubhouse that will open for the
tournament.
Information about the TPC Sawgrass
Storyteller program is available at 904-280-
4832.

THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER


The Leader's Opinion


Parents are key to

curbing minors'

abuse of alcohol
A survey of parents, students, teachers and adminis-
trators reportedly revealed that adolescent abuse of alco-
hol, drugs and tobacco use are top concerns for the
Beaches community.
The survey, as reported last week, was conducted by
the Beaches Resource Center.
It could have been conducted decades ago and proba-
bly netted the same results.
UnJfortunately as long as there are curious teens, there
will be some number of teens using and abusing sub-
stances that can do great harm to young minds and bod-
ies.
Peer pressure and youth experimentation are coun-
tered with school programs such as DARE and health
classes. Few would deny the need to promote awareness
about the dangers of substance abuse, but the efficacy of
such measures is still less than completely satisfactory.
The schools are no replacement for parents nor
should they be expected to fill the role. As uncool as it
may be, it is up to parents to lead the way in teaching
their children about the dangers of substance abuse -
particularly by minors.
Leading by example is, of course, recommended.
Frank discussions within the family are also impor-
tant. For those families who want more information to
avoid a possibly deadly problem, the Center will host a
tree parent education night April 17 at 7 p.m. at Fletcher
High School to inform parents about substance abuse
awareness.
The program is open to all. Those who attend are try-
ing to keep their families safe and are to be commended
making the effort.
We all have a stake in preventing substance abuse by
minors.

Please remember that Mayport Middle

School is Atlantic Beach's school


Y es, that's right! There by LA
are two middle schools
at the Beach; one of M L
course everyone knows- ME
Fletcher Middle. It has an CONT
excellent reputation, a long
history, and it's hard to miss
being right on Third Street, a road we at the
beaches seem to travel every day.
But I'm writing today to let you know
about the "newer" kid on the block-
Mayport Middle School, the school for
Atlantic Beach middle school students.
Although the "youngest" of the two schools,
Mayport has been around since the late 70's.
I even have friends who attended Mayport
when it first opened. Unfortunately, as far'
as exposure, it's tucked away in a part of the
Beach that is not heavily traveled by people
not working at Mayport Naval Station. The
good news is that where it's tucked away is
lovely. It's on a natural, wooded campus,
with a lake and fountain right outside the
front door. It's a hidden gem, and as PTA
President I felt compelled to let people know
what a wonderful school it is. And, it's right
around the corner.
_,ere,,aqTeg5me highlights:
,*Curgent enrollment is 720 students
S* reat teachers and staff
A full-time gifted program, for those who
wish to continue in that track, as well as
advanced and standard classes
*Sports offered include boys and girls soc-


A


R


U RIE cer, football, baseball, girls
softball and volleyball,
N CON track, swimming, and cheer-
leading
IBUTOR *An award-winning band,
along with art and language
electives
*Great facility, recently renovated
*Special assignments are available if you do
not live in Atlantic Beach
The demographics of Atlantic Beach have
changed over the last several years-
decreased personnel at the naval station and
soaring property values to start. Then the
Wonderwood Expressway was built recently,
which allowed easier access to the naval sta-
tion from the west of the Intracoastal, where
people could find better real estate values.
Therefore, Mayport's enrollment has
dropped from around 1,100 eight years ago,
to only a little over 700 today. So now is a
great time to make the choice to attend
Mayport Middle School.
If you're interested in seeing for yourself,
the "Shark Showcase" is April 24 at 6:30 pm.
This will be held at the school, 3.2 miles
north of Atlantic Blvd. (a half of a mile past
the left turn-off: fipfthe ferry), on theswest
side"of.-Mappg 9iad. i91oq3 ow A uilisud
It'll be a good chance to see the campus,
and meet the staff and sixth grade teachers.
We hope to see you there!
Melancon is PTA president of Mayport Middle
School.


n vues q ity of life for

Vision values quality of life for NB


To the editor:
My vision for Neptune
Beach in a nutshell:
A low-rise, pedestrian-
friendly beach town that val-
ues quality of life more than
the financial interests of the
real estate and development
industries.
A city whose Code of
Ordinances and Land
Development Regulations
are adequately designed to
protect that quality of life.
An abundantly green, tree
city that appreciates and
safeguards its unique ecolog-
ical resources.
A town that protects its
beaches and its spectacular
starry nights from the care-
less glare of excessive securi-


ty lighting.
A town that welcomes visi-
tors, and new businesses, but
puts the long term interests
of its citizens first.
A community in which
property rights are balanced
with property responsibili-
ties like consideration for
one is neighbors.
I am currently trying to
establish a set of reasonable
guidelines for the protection
of the Hopkins Creek
Estuary. This beautiful and
environmentally sensitive
area was designated a
"Conservation District" by
the Neptune Beach City
Council in 1990 in order to
preserve its beauty for future
generations.


New docks are now being
constructed which will sig-
nificantly diminish the view
of the marsh ani the sunset
from the Kings Road Bridge
and from homes located
along Hopkins Creek east of
that bridge. I believe that
protecting this exceptional
community resource from
over-development is an
important objective.
If you agree, I hope you
will share your views with
other members of the City
Council and will take the
time to attend the Council
Workshop at 6 p.m. on April
16.

JOHN
HARDEBECK
COLUMNIST



Cheery

people in

dull jobs

amaze me


anyone looking for paid
employment in this
area is apparently a
lucky laborer. Last February,
it was reported that a Forbes
magazine study found
Jacksonville ranked Number
3 in the country for jobs and,
on that basis, was the best
city in the state.
Of course, not. every spot
that's filled here is one that's
enjoyable or even interesting.
It seems some must be
downright boring and/or
unpleasant. That's why I'm
constantly amazed at the
upbeat attitudes of .people
who are in such work. It's not
that. I'm unacquainted with
this type of drudgery. I was
once a high school janitor.
However, it was when I start-
ed attending Rutgers
University at night, and the
position put me in a position
to study while the students
were studying in the class-
rooms I was to clean later.
There's a.touch of irony
here, though.
I had been captain of the
football team that whacked
this school for the first time
in my school's long history of
o playing against them. A few
years later, "owevr' ITm
pushing a broom there. Some
folks might consider that a
comedown, but for me it was
a leg up to a college degree. So
I was happy, and I'm sure it
showed. Besides, although I
didn't realize it at the time, I
found out how to clean my
house (whenever I get around
to it).
I had a career reason for
being in a menial job, but it's
hard for me to understand
why others who probably
don't can have a super-sunny
outlook.
For instance, I hear the
garbage collectors laughing
and joking among them-
selves, and they smilingly
greet the homeowner if they
see him or her. I'm sure it's
not the frequent stenches
they regard as humorous.
Maybe they're elated because
their business is picking up.
Recently, I met a young lady
at Baptist Medical Center
Beaches whose assignment
was to round up and dispose
of trash in the rooms. She
was friendly (like just about
everyone there) and philo-
sophically figured somebody
has to do it but wasn't down
in the dumps (moralewise)
Because she was the one. I
imagine she'll be in a more
satisfying job pretty soon
(other than emptying bed-
pans).
For Fletcher seniors who'll
eventually be career hunting,
it's essential to write an imag-
inative resume. Just don't
overdo it.
I learned of one high school
grad who described her job
experience as: "Three years of
professional infantile posteri-
or placement." She was a
baby sitter.

Internet

crime is


target of

deputies'

workshop

for parents


FROM STAFF
Free Internet safety work-
shops for children and adults
will be offered in St.
Augustine Saturday by the St.
Johns County Sheriffs Office.
"Far too many of these cases
[of online victimization] . .
are occurring," said Chuck
Mulligan, spokesman for the
Sheriff's Office.
He said that a workshop for
children and another for
adults will be held at the same
time, with each workshop
providing age-appropriate
material.
Workshops begin at 1 p.m.
and are repeated, at 2:30 p.m.,
with each expected to last
about 45 minutes, Mulligan
said.
The goal is to prevent vic-
timization while online by
enhancing communication
between adult and child,
enhancing children' ability
to recognize dangers on the
Internet and encouraging
children to report incidents to
a trusted adult.
This is the first time the
Sheriff's Office is offering the
program from
NetSmartzKidz.org, he said.
Free Internet safety soft-
ware, which "helps the par-
ents be able to track what's
being said to their kids"
through chat rooms, will be
given while supplies last, he
said.
The first 200 children to
attend will be given T-shirts,
and there will be door prizes,
car seat safety checks and dis-
plays of equipment from the
Fire Department and Sheriff's
Office.
The event will take place at
the St. Johns County auditori-
um, 4020 Lewis Speedway, off
U.S. 1 just north of the St.
Augustine city gates.
"If, in fact, there's an over-
whelming response, .. we
can do the program again,"
Mulligan said.
"It's always better if we can
educate, keep people aware, so
the crime never happens," he
said.

BUSINESS



Tattoo business for AB gets first OK


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A request for a tattoo busi-
ness that will sell more than
just body art was approved by
the City Commission
Monday.
Jim Curtis Kirkland
requested permission to open
a tattoo business in conjunc-
tion with a retail store that
would sell modern art -
including some pieces by
local artists although the
request is only the first step
of approval. The applicant
wanted the Commission's
permission before he contin-
ued the process.
The Commission Monday
approved the request for the
store at 25 Sailfish Drive in a
4-1 decision, with


Commissioner Jamie Fletcher
voting against it.
"This seems like a loophole
to me," he said, explaining
that tattoo parlors are not
permitted in the commercial
general district where the
only business is a tattoo or
piercing service, but they are
permitted if they are in con-
junction with or ancillary to
some other retail service that
is allowed in the district.
He questioned what per-
centage of the business would
be a tattoo parlor and what
percentage would be based
on the art sold.
Kirkland said he intends to
sell art from various artists,
some local, who are looking
for an outlet to sell their
work, he said.


"There's not a place at the
Beach, really, that has a lot of
art," he said.
However, City Attorney
Alan Jenson said that there is
nothing in the ordinance
that establishes parameters
for the percentage breakdown
of the businesses.
The Commission also ques-
tioned Kirkland regarding
medical practices and he
explained that a certified
doctor will visit the business
twice per year and a represen-
tative from the state health
department will visit once a
year to ensure that the busi-
ness does not have any med-
ical violations. Medical
supervision is a requirement
for tattoo businesses, accord-
ing to City Clerk Donna


Bussey, who provided the
staff report.
Kirkland will still have to
go through building and fire
department inspections as
well as get approval from the
zoning department for his
business.

Humane.Society team up
with Jax animal control
under consideration


The City of Jacksonville and
the Jacksonville Humane
Society (JHS) have formed a
working group to determine if
the construction and operation
of co-located animal facilities *
can serve both of the agencies
and the community effectively.
The working group will be
comprised of representatives *
from the City's Environmental g
Resource Management and
Public Works Departments,
Animal Care and Control
Division and Jacksonville 0
Humane Society staff and
board leadership. 0
The working group will focus
on areas where both
Jacksonville Humane Society
and the City's Animal Care and 0
Control Divisions could share *
common space. These may
include such functions as com-
munity education, adoption,
and spay and neutering pro- 0
grams. The two organizations
would maintain other pro-
grams and responsibilities sep-


arately. The Jacksonville
Humane Society's board of
directors meets on April 18 and
the working group plans to
present their early findings to
the board and to Mayor John
Peyton at that time.
"The Jacksonville Humane
Society and Animal Care and
Control both work hard every
day," said Mayor John Peyton.
A fire early Saturday morning
caused part of the roof to cave
in over the feline area and
destroyed the facility. Several
cats perished in the blaze.
"Through this tragedy, a prom-
ising opportunity has
emerged," said Humane
Society's Executive Director
Leona Sheddan, "Donations
have been arriving at a steady
pace and will be greatly needed
and appreciated for long time
to come."
Anyone interested in donat-
ing to the Jacksonville Humane
Society may do so at one of
three ways, dropping cash,
checks, and money orders to

Since August 2003, when the
Navy first deployed HSV (high-speed ves-
sel) 2 Swift, the 321-foot-long catamaran
with a crew of 43 has circumnavigated
the globe twice and supported relief
efforts to North Sumatra following the
2004 tsunami and to the 'Gulf Coast in
2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane
Katrina.
The high-speed vessel, which can navi-
gate in waters as shallow as 9 feet and
carry more than 600 tons of cargo, also
ferried humanitarian materials into Beirut
last year, during the Israel-Lebanon con-
flict.
"We took about 350 tons into Beirut
and offloaded it ourselves in about five
hours," Cmdr. Rob Morrison of HSV 2
Swift said Friday afternoon, as the ship
was en route to Mayport.
"Our amphibious ships have a larger
capacity, but they can't draw 9 feet of
water or dock into a port without the use
of tugs and [bar] pilots. And they can't do
50 knots."

to fly out to the ship as it was making its
way to Mayport.
HSV 2 Swift has a certified helicopter
flight deck capable of accepting twin-
engine lielos such as the Navy's SH-60
Seahawk and the larger CH-46 Sea Knight.
The vessel also can carry a multitude of
military vehicles inside its 28,000-square-
foot cargo deck, including tanks up to
141,000 pounds. It's also equipped with a
crane capable of lifting up to 26,000
pounds.
"This ship is only 300 feet long, but we
have the cargo capacity of 17, C-17 [trans-
port] aircraft," added Morrison, who
became HSV 2 Swift's "Gold Team" com-
mander in August 2005.
"What you are seeing is the future of
our Navy. The high-speed Navy is some-
thing that is going to be very light, fast
and able to carry a lot of material."

Not a combatant ship

Fast, lightweight and highly maneuver-


able, HSV 2 Swift skips across the sea as
the Navy's vanguard vessel of the 21st
century.
Able to deploy in both deep and shal-
low waters, the ship is fully automated
and runs on auto-pilot 90 percent of the
time.
The cutting-edge ship, powered by four
diesel engines and four water jets, is the
only one in the Navy authorized to oper-
ate without navigational charts. It navi-
gates electronically using global-position-
ing satellite technology.
Armed with a dual .50 caliber machine
gun and two 20mm guns, Swift is not
what the Navy considers a combatant
warship, said Morrison, adding that the
ship has been clocked as fast as 43 knots.
"You put armor on it, and you lose your
speed," he said as the all-aluminum vessel
was about 50 minutes away from docking
at Mayport.

Accotink expanding its


Ponte Vedra campus


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
Accotink Academy, an
accelerated preschool and
kindergarten in Ponte Vedra,
is adding another building
and expanding the school
through fifth grade in the
fall.
When the private school
opened 10 years ago on
Canal Boulevard off County
Road 210, expansion was in
the plans.
"We've always been an
advanced program, and the
school has just blossomed
here," said Elaine
McConnell, 79, who found-
ed the first Accotink
Academy in Springfield, Va.
in 1964.
"So we feel like if we can
take them all the way up ito
fifth grade, that would really
be wonderful," she said.
"We really want to devote
a lot of time to the math and
science and computer tech-
nology, so we're going to try
to emphasize those areas."
McConnell said the school
has about 230 students
enrolled in its half-day, pre-
school programs for ages 3
and 4 and its kindergarten
classes.
She expects just under 500
students at full capacity
through fifth grade, with 18
students per classroom.
The existing building is
about 13,500 square feet,
.,a,4d the new building ,. i!i (i..

age tuition is about $4,000 a

"We have accreditation for
the lower grades, but we
have to wait a year after
opening under Florida ruling
to apply for accreditation for
the upper grades," she said.

raised in Jacksonville but

McConnell had taught pre-,

when she got to D.C., she
was disappointed with the
preschool programs, she
.said.
"I've always been a believ-

the time were fighting me
saying preschool is play

"So I decided to open my
own school, and my students
were coming out reading
from kindergarten and every-

Harper: Teacher of year


Cont. from A-8
in Harper's first three seasons
at the helm.
"Sports are hard to do here
because you never know
what batch of kids you're
going to get and we're a rela-
tively small middle school,"
Harper said.
A lot of the other schools
in the city have kids who
have been playing Pop
Warner together since they
were kids and they can really
build the program, and they
have 1,200 or 1,400 kids,
whereas we have about 800.
"So this was a good year
for us."
Harper also grew up play-
ing Pop Warner football in
Kauai; Hawaii, where his
father Thomas Harper, was
the Pop Warner commission-
er.
Harper went on to play
NAIA college football as an
offensive lineman and line-
backer at Dakota State
University in Madison, S.D.
After that he returned to
Hawaii to coach and teach.
Harper hadn't planned on
becoming a teacher, but he
did want to coach. So when
it was time to think about
graduating and he realized
that most of the classes he
took were geared toward
earning a teaching certifi-
cate, he gave it a shot.
"To tell you the truth I
didn't like school much and
I didn't plan on being there
any longer than I had to
growing up," Harper admits.
"But once I tried it and I
did my student teaching I
realized it was something I
really wanted to do because
it put me closer to the kids I
coach because I love coach-
ing and the results you see
with the kids is immediate
feedback. It makes you feel
good like you're really
accomplishing something
every day."
Harper met his wife, Susan,
while teaching in Hawaii.
She is originally from
Jacksonville, but was recruit-
ed to teach special education
in Hawaii.
Susan Harper now works as
the childcare coordinator at
Christ United Methodist
Church in Neptune Beach.
The Harper family, includ-
ing Ainsley, 13, Caitlyn, 8,
Stephanie, 6, Koa, 4, and
Tatum, 10 months, moved
back to Jacksonville when
Susan's father became ill.
Both Ryan and Susan's
fathers have died, but Susan's

mom, Hattie Huff, lives in
Jacksonville, and Ryan's
mom, Lovey Harper, still
lives in Hawaii.
"This teacher of the year
came as a big surprise to me.
I didn't expect it," Harper
added.
I1 ii.t try to help the stu-
dents reach their goals."

in fact, we're not ahaid to tell you if we think
something looks uglv," he says with a smile "Everything we do is
always all about you, our customer, and how best to serve you,"
savs Keith. "I doubt there is any other store in the Jacksonville area


i that holds as many hands as we do and listens as carefully as we
do"
But it's not enough to hand-hold and listen, Keith adds. "You
also need the expertise and tollow-through, and we have both." he
says. "Here we have in-house experts who know how to tailor the
nver latest design trends and decorating products to our customers
ideas and dreams."
To offer customers the "\ern latest." Floors By Design continues
to expand the line of products it carries. "We've lust added
\Vellbom, a venr prominent cabinet line with lots of different price
points from an entry-level, beautiful fol cabinet line up to as
many ornate details as you \3ant," Keith says. "It's adaptable and
works in kitchens, bathrooms and even home offices and is a great
complement to our Rav\wall Cabinets, which are frameless and
more European based, also with lots of different price points."
Floors By Design also offers the Designers' Choice cabinet line.
"The nice part about Designers Choice is that they're made m
Rockledge, Fla, and we generally get a turnaround time of two-
and-a-half to threeee weeks, Keith sa\s.
Because Floors By Design offers more products, expert design and
quick turnaround, the\'ve expanded there expertise. "Our business
Emphasis has expanded, and now we do a lot of overhauls and
maior re-dos that include cabinetry and showers in master bath-
rooms and cabinetry in kitchens." Keith says. "Somehow the word
got out people are very interested in bath and kitchen design
Sand ~i-design. and that's become a real big part of our business."
\\hat trends does Keith see.' Unnl about a yeat ago, designs wilre
light, ainv and open. according to I\eith. ".ll of a sudden, in the
past six months to a year, many customers want a dark-wood look.
If they can't get the dark wood in the floors, they're putting it in
the cabinets and lightening the floors or vice versa. They seem to
like that contrast," he said. "I think people are into the warm. rus-
tic, home feeling of wood, but tile still is and always will be pop-
ular at the beach."
S Another Floors By Design plus is that customers don't have to be
home or even in town tor professionals to work their magic.
"A lot of our customers don't live here year round, so we discuss
theu plans, keep them informed of our progress and complete the
lob in their absence," he said. "W\hat a nice wav to come back to
\-our house at the beach without the mess and fuss of remodel-
Srng.!"

NB seniors go out to the ballpark


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

"Take me out to the ballgame,
take me out with the crowd" is
what dozens of Beaches seniors
did April 5,. when they took a
chartered bus to Jacksonville's
Baseball Grounds.
The seniors watched the
Tennessee Smokies beat the
home side 3-1 and were part of a
Suns opening-day record crowd
of 10,417. It was the fifth con-
secutive year, since the 11,000-
seat stadium opened in 2003,
that center director Leslie Lyne
has organized an opening day
,trip for a group from the
Neptune Beach Senior Activity
Center
Neptune Beach residents Jane
Brooks, Arlene Christ, Betty
Hughes and Elinor Lowry, Don
Sherwood of Jacksonville Beach
and Nancy Price of the' West
Beaches have attended all the
openers with other center mem-
bers.
Boston transplants Sherwood
and his wife Evelyn wore Red
Sox caps. Don said he was a
member of the Knothole Gang at
Braves Field and Evelyn we: t'to
Braves games before she met
him.
There were some Suns sup-
porters on the bus last week,
though.
"I'm a Suns fan," said Ross
Lickfeld, a West Beaches resident
who played baseball in high
school. "I don't go to many
games. I think I would like to go
to more, and I especially like to
go because of this group.."
Lickfeld, who wore a Suns cap,
said he had gotten away from
watching major league baseball
for various reasons, but noted
fans keep coming out.
"Just like they say, it's the
American pasttime. And you
always have it in you because
you played as a kid."
.. Jane Macomber of Jacksonville
Beach wore a Suns shirt to show
her support for the home team


while Carol May, who moved to
Atlantic Beach in December, was
going to her first professional
game.
"I'm not really very interested
in baseball. But it seems like, in
person, it would be fun," said
May, who grew up with four
baseball-playing brothers.
Bob Tipton arrived at the ball-
park wearing a "Mighty Worms"
T-shirt, the team of one of the 11
grandchildren he and his wife
Jodi have living in a five-block
area of Jacksonville Beach.
Christ, one of the baseball
group's original members, said
she is a fan of all sports,
"Baseball, football basketball,
you name it," she said, adding "I
guess maybe.baseball, probably"
is her favorite sport.
Betty Banes said she usually
.favored the St. Louis Cardinals
while her friend Ruby McCrqne
supports the Atlanta Braves. The
friends, both from Ponte Vedra
Beach, were part of the group
from the center, which is open
to all seniors, regardless of resi-
dency.
"I'm from the St. Louis area,
I'm from the Cardinals home,"
said Banes. "I love it."
Her sentiment was echoed by
McCrone, whose father-in-law,
Stuffy McCrone, played minor
league baseball in the Tar Heel
League.
Another regular at the ball-
park, Hughes said she has always
had a love for the game, noting
she is her son's fantasy league
scout.
She recalled seeing all-time
home run king Hank Aaron play
second base for Jacksonville in
1953 at Durkee Field, the precur-
sor to Wolfson Park, which pre-
ceded the Baseball Grounds.
"I knew, when he played here
in 1953, that he was special,"
she said of Aaron. "I've never
seen a player who could hit the
way he did. To me, nobody com-
pares with Henry Aaron. Because
of his strong wrists, he could hit
any pitcher."

Nease baseball turns season around


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

Things have changed for the
Nease High School baseball
team in recent weeks.
The Panthers started the sea-
son 0-9 and looked like a team
that couldn't beat itself at
times. Then, Nease won its
first game against Pedro
Menendez High School March
16 and the team has taken a
new look since as a ballclub
with eight wins to its credit
and a shot at the fourth seed
in the district tournament.
"Once we got the first win
against Menendez a couple of
weeks ago, we've been playing
some decent baseball,"
Panthers head coach Lee
Geiger said.
"It's just nice seeing the kids
have confidence and believing
in themselves."
With new coaches and a
young squad, the Panthers fig-
ured 2007 would be nothing
more than a rebuilding sea-
son. Geiger knew it would
take the coaches time to learn


the kids, and vice versa, before
the .4 !tl'p would start clicking
together as a team.



Once we got the first
win against Menendez
a couple of weeks
ago, we've been play-
ing some decent base-
ball. It's just nice see-
ing the kids have con-
'fidence and believing
in themselves.

"It's been a growing process
for all of us," Geiger
explained. "We knew if would
be. Between us learning the
players and the players learn-
ing us coaches and changing

things up, things are looking a
little bit better now."
The Panthers have been
lighting up the scoreboard
lately, with three consecutive
games scoring 10 or more
runs, its most recent at home
against Menendez Monday
night. Nease won 17-0
against Menendez, its fourth
win in the last five games.
The Panthers won their pre-
vious two ballgames by scores
of 17-4 and 11-4, respectively.
"The guys feel like they can
beat anybody," Geiger said,
"And that's the way they're
playing."
Despite the recent success,
things haven't changed much
in the Panther dugout. The
players are still having as good
a time as they were in the
beginning, even with the
early-season struggles.
"Even when we,were 0-9,.
the kids were always upbeat,"
Geiger said.
Jared MacNaught is one of
the players on the team that
has really picked up the pace
in recent weeks. The team's
most outstanding player in
the Red Devil Mizuno
Tournament last week,
MacNaught went 7-for-9 at
the plate with five stolen bases
and scored six runs. He has
also added nearly 200 points
to his batting average.
"He's just been outstanding
lately," Geiger said of the jun-
ior outfielder.
But the Panthers recent suc-
cess isn't solely because of
MacNaught. Geiger:says it's a
team effort.
"Baseball's a game of failure,
if you don't have any success
it gets worse and worse," he
said.
"Once you have a little bit
success, things get better. You
start believing in yourself.
Things come easier, the game
slows down and it's a lot easi-
er to play. It's been a total
team effort."
The Panthers look to extend
their good fortune Wednesday
when they travel to Palatka
High School, a game that was
rescheduled from earlier this
season.

Ceithaml fired a five-inning
no-hitter Monday night as
Nease whitewashed Matanzas
15-0 at home.
Ceithaml evened her record
at 10-10 with the win.
Offensively, the Panthers
plated 15 runs on seven hits,
taking advantage of three
Matanzas errors. Nease also
capitalized on the wildness of
Owls starting pitcher Lindsay
McCardell who walked in a
pair of runs in the first inning.
The Panthers were sched-
uled to take on Middleburg
Tuesday night in a St. Johns
River Athletic Conference
game.

BASEBALL
Fletcher 6, Sandalwood 2
Sophomore pitcher Scott Sitz
threw a complete game and
senior third baseman Tyler
Bounds went 3 for 4 with two
RBI to lift visiting Fletcher
High to 6-2 triumph over
Sandalwood on Saturday.
The key district win also
assured the Senators (13-6) of
the No. 3 seed in this month's
District 1-6A tournament,
where they will face off with
Sandalwood (12-6, 5-3) for a
state playoff berth.
"Now, it's going to be us and
Fletcher to see who goes on,"
Sandalwood skipper Billy Bell
said after Saturday's game.
"If we see each other before
the district, it will be a good
thing."
Bell was referring to this
week's Gateway Conference
tournament at Jacksonville
University, where Fletcher and
Sandalwood are seeded first
and second, respectively.
"We finished third the last
two years, so we want to taste
what it's like to win a champi-
onship," Fletcher head coach
Kevin Brown said.


"Whoever plays up to their
potential will win it."
Fletcher played up to its sea-
son-long expectations Saturday
against the host Saints.
After falling behind 2-0, the
Senators took the lead in the
fourth inning and added two
insurance runs in the seventh
to even their district slate at 4-4.














OWLS 0
PANTHERS 15

Senior Patrick Braswell (.373)
leadoff the third inning with a
solo homer to start the come-
back, and senior Alex Tiemeier
drove in the tying and winning
runs on a single in the fourth.
Junior Sean Brown squeezed
in another run and Bounds
(.300) capped the scoring with
a two-run double in the sev-
enth. Senior Sam Perry (.343)
went 2 for 2.
Sitz (.379), however, was the
hero of the day, tossing seven
compete innings and scattering
seven hits.
He gave up a two-run single
in the first, and only two hits
out of the infield the rest of
the way.
"Go easy on us next time,"
Bell told Sitz as the two teams
exchanged post-game hand-
shakes.
"The first inning, we got on
him a little bit, but he did a
good job of gathering his com-
posure and battling back.


"And when Fletcher took the
lead to go up 4-2, you saw a
whole different pitcher out
there."
Sitz (4-3, 1.82 ERA) retired
the side in order in the fifth
and induced two double plays
in the sixth and the seventh.
The right-hander has evolved
into a dependable starter this
season after being thrown to
the wolves early on.
"He pitched against
Buchholz in the first week of
the season and pitched well
enough to win, but we didn't
play well behind him," said
Brown, who calls pitches for
Fletcher's staff.
"He has big shoulders. He's
going to have some other big-
ger games down the road."
Added junior catcher Cory
Franklin: "Me and Scott
worked extra this week to get
back to where we were before
the Wolfson game [a 14-8 loss].
"We're in the bullpen every
day before practice."
Fletcher's defense, which
uncharacteristically fell apart
against Wolfson, was back to
form against Sandalwood.
Perry, a University of North
Florida signee, made two amaz-
ing plays at shortstop after
turning in a stellar pitching
performance two days earlier
against Paxon.
"He struck out 10 and had a'
no-hitter going in the fifth,"
said Brown, who pulled Perry
(3-1, 1.55) after five innings in
the 5-0 victory.
"I didn't want Sam to finish
the game because his arm
would have been sore for
Saturday. If I throw him anoth-
er 30 more pitches [at Paxon],
he doesn't make those throws
from shortstop [at
Sandalwood]."
Bounds was seeing it and
being it at the plate Saturday.
The senior had a single and
two doubles and was hit by a
pitch in the fifth.

OPINION



Johnson tames Augusta for historic Masters triumph


nd so another Masters
classic has come and
gone, leaving the sham-
bles of hopes and dreams of
golfers who have panted for
the green jacket adorned by
winners (but never allowed to
leave the sacred grounds of
Augusta National) no matter
how they fit.
This year's winner, Zach
Johnson, is a novelty at
Augusta National.
"Unknowns" are not supposed
to win the tournament made
famous by Jack Nicklaus,
Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson,
Ben Hogan and Sam Snead.
Not to mention, of course, the
unmatchable four-time winner
Tiger Woods.
One would think Johnson,
an apparently modest, nice fel-
low from Iowa had drawn a
mustache on the portrait of
Bobby Jones or Cliff Roberts
just by winning. Good heav-
ens! This is the Masters, not
The players. This is a major;
minors are not allowed to win.


d ing four days, including wrap-
ping a club around a tree.
Some of us can remember
when Tommy Bolt led the
Tour in clubs wrapped around
trees. But Tommy did it pur-
r posely and with style.
Sure Tiger, who was later
.... seen scowling, was unhappy.
'- But not half as unhappy
(whistling to the bank regard-
less) as some members of the
media, who worship the air
REX EDMONDSON Tiger breathes. Who is this

with Woods and only a couple
of strokes back. How about
Justin Rose and Jerry Kelly,
Padraig Harrington and Stuart
Appleby, all of whom were
close enough to be pickpock-
ets?
The list is long of winners
who didn't win. That's what
makes Zach Johnson even bet-
ter.
All the beefing about the
cold weather at the Masters
could have been eliminated if
the powers that be at Augusta
National had followed the
example of The Players and
changed their playing date to
May. It's always warm and
sunny in May, right?
Gee whiz, Billy Payne, the
guiding hand at the tourna-
ment that Bob Jones and Cliff
Roberts put together back in
the Thirsty Thirties, the smart
thing to do is to move your
green jacket hunt to May, like
us down here. There's no mud
in the parking lot and it's
unlikely your event will inter-
fere with any basketball tour-


naments. Unless they decide
to replay the Final Four but
obviously the Gators would
veto that idea. They like they
way it turned out this year.
And last.
But seriously, The Players
high command will tell you a
change to May is the panacea
for anything that ails your
tournament. Ask the experts
down here who have been cry-
ing about missing the Final
Four because of March golf
dates.
Of course, the jury is still
out on the results. The Players
hasn't been contested in May
yet. It's right around the cor-
ner, however.
It's amazing, really, that The
players Championship nee the
Greater Jacksonville Open, was
so successful in March for 42
years. Guess nobody knew any
better.

Billy stays, some top
Gators go pro
At last the biggest breath-
holder is over. Billy Donovan


says he will stay at Florida and
the Swamp, regardless of how
much gold the University of
Kentucky offered him. Money
can't buy loyalty to one's
school. Of course, for enough
greenbacks loyalties can
change.
We tried to tell Billy that he
was better off starting his own
dynasty with the Florida
Gators rather than following
in the giant footsteps of
Adolph Rupp, and it looks like
he listened.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats
appeared bent on getting a
Billy and they eventually did
- Billy Gillespie.
Donovan stayed in
Gainesville, his champions are
headed for the pros and every-
body should be happy.
Now the big job for
Donovan will be recruiting
and re-stocking the Gators.
Florida coaches have never :
had more going for them, than
Urban Meyer and Donovan do
right now. The fans are with
both, win big or win small.
