in this issue: Lack of funds worry ferry fans


r Keeping the Mayport Ferry should be the
state's responsibility, according to Atlantic
Beach Mayor Don Wolfson who spoke at a
Mayport Waterfront Partnership meeting
L Wolfson explained that the responsibility
should not fall on the three Beaches munic-
ipalities because the ferry is a link in a state
: road. All of the Beaches cities have passed a
Fletcher resolution in support of maintaining the

"For them [the state] not to be responsi-
ble for a state road is ludicrous," he said.
Wolfson also spoke to Sen. Jim King, who
announced that he would champion the
ferry cause at November meeting of the
Duval County legislative delegation.
Wolfson told the partnership that King
told him the state may fund 50 percent of
the projected shortfall, but that is not like-
ly. Funds for the ferry are currently in the
proposed Senate fiscal budget for 2007-
2008 for $396,030, according to a represen-
tative from King's office.

King was unavailable for comment.
Wolfson told partnership members that
there should be an effort to lobby in
Tallahassee for funding because the road
and its maintenance should be the state's
He said the key issue to express is that the
property will be deeded back to the
Strickland family, who originally donated
it, if the ferry is discontinued.
"If we lose it, it's gone," Wolfson said.

A developer plans to convert a former civic
building in Jacksonville Beach into residen-
tial units once the local real estate market
regains momentum.
In the meantime, Alan Dickinson is look-
ing for an educational; civic or church group
to occupy the former Jacksonville Beach
Women's Club building at 1315 2nd Avenue
Dickinson, owner of the North Beach
Shopping Center in Atlantic Beach and devel-
oper of the Lorelei condominiums in
-Jacksonville Beach, purchased the 1.5-acre
parcel for $1,250,000 .
The property includes a 5,152-square-foot
clubhouse. Under the current RM-1 zoning,
20 units per
acre are
allowed on
the site.

"It is one of the last pieces of land with that

Dickinson said he is actively looking for a
tenant to help defray costs while the condo
market is still soft. One possible tenant is the
Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Church at
2115 12th Avenue North, he said.

The law firm that advised the
city of Neptune Beach regarding
a. Wal-Mart application spent
nearly triple what the,_city
authorized and the city fathers
said Monday they will not pay.
Councilors said the law firm
of Lewis, Longman & Walker,
P.A. exceeded the established
fee and the city should not'have
to pay any additional charges.
The "engagement letter" gov-
erning the firm's employ is an
enforceable contract, according
to City Attorney Chris White,
who is not affiliated with the
Lewis firm.. White explained
that the firm, experts in land use
litigation, had agreed to notify
the city if its service fees would
exceed an established $10,000.
However, according to City
S' Manager Jim Jarboe, the firm's
S fees have reached nearly
.. $28,000 and the city was not
notified of this.
The firm agreed to take off
approximately $12,000 to
$13,000 worth of fees, but "it's
still 50 percent over what we
had originally talked about,"
Jarboe said.
, City Attorney Chris White
told the council that the bill is a
reasonable reflection of the
firm's services, however, the
council took issue with the lack
of notification.
"It's the taxpayers money and

tional funds," said Vice Mayor

6-year battle over codes ends with $100,000

payment to Jax Beach to avoid forced sale

Two dilapidated structures at the center
of a six-year code enforcement battle in
Jacksonville Beach will come down next
week according to an agreement between
the property owner and the city.
The contract requires that owner Steven
Roth of Springfield, N.J. demolish a vacant
cottage and adjacent duplex at 606, 608
and 610 2nd Street South next week.
It also marks the second time Roth man-
aged at the zero hour to stop the foreclo-
sure sale of the property on the courthouse
The property was scheduled to be auc-
tioned at 11 a.m. Monday at the Duval
County Courthouse in downtown
Jacksonville after a last minute injunction
was filed last summer to block the first
scheduled sale.
City Attorney Stephen Stratford Monday
said a representative for Roth presented the
city with a check for over $100,000 to sat-
isfy a lien imposed by code enforcement
officials in 2001 for failing to bring the
property into compliance with city codes.
"The city collected the money and can-
celed the sale," he said. "It satisfies the
liens and paid the attorney fees and court
Stratford said Roth agreed to enter into a
contract with the city to begin razing the
boarded buildings next week after fighting
with officials for years over the condition
of the property.
"Why he wasted all that time and money
I don't know," Stratford said. "He could
have rebuilt with all the money he has paid
but he wanted to fight. If he wants a fight
then we'll fight.'
Stratford said Roth's attorney, less than
three days before the first auction, filed a
motion to vacate the default of a lien,
imposed by the city and set aside all final
judgments after Roth repeatedly failed to
correct numerous code violations.
City officials imposed a $122,000 lien
against the property on Aug. 26, 2003
which racked up a total of $24,871.76 in
interest after Roth failed to comply with
orders to demolish the structures, Stratford



These are two of the buildings that were the subject of a six-year-long debate between
the city and the owner.

The City Council also assessed $2,615.80
against Roth to cover the.cost of boarding
the windows and doors of the buildings
which, city officials said, were becoming a
haven for rampant transient and criminal
Circuit Court Judge Peter J. Fryefield
entered his final judgment June 28, order-
ing Roth to pay $160,0087.67 plus 8 per-
cent interest to satisfy a lien imposed by
the city over three years ago.
Fryefield also ordered Roth to pay the
city's legal fees totaling $9,709.
Stratford said Roth claims to have taken
steps toward resolving the legal tug of war
over the property but "he totally failed to
respond" to the city's Dec. 4 motion seek-
ing discovery of the evidence by the end of
the year.
"He provided no documentation what-
soever," Stratford said. "Enough is
In January, Stratford filed a motion to
have Roth furnish documents and other

information pertaining to the last minute
injunction filed in August, 2006 and asked
that the court strike Roth's motion to dis-
miss the default and order a new sale date
of the property.
"[Roth] is playing a lot of games with the
city," he said of the legal wrangling that
allowed Roth to continually defer any
action by the courts to remedy the situa-
Calls to Roth's law office were not
returned Tuesday.
Problems with the property date back to
August, 2001 when it was first investigated
by police for substandard structural condi-
tions and illegal activity, according to city
The city's police department responded
to numerous criminal violations including
drug sales, prostitution, fights and theft of
electricity, records show.
Roth has repeatedly denied any wrong-
doing though the years, instead accusing
the city of doing "a bunch of illegal things"
regarding his property.

The Council reviewed
Councilor John Weldon's pro-

altered proposal submitted by
Vice Mayor Harriet Pruette,
which suggested that dock

Rentals in

NB may be

28 days

Anyone wanting to rent a
private dwelling in Neptune
Beach will have to do so for at
least 28 days, according to a
proposed law.
The Neptune Beach City
Council Monday originally
looked at banning any rentals
of less than 90 days to curb par-
tying and excessive noise in
primarily residential areas. The
proposed limit was reduced to
28 days Monday and the, ordi-
nance will go to a first reading
next month.
Councilor John Weldon
offered the ordinance to curb
problems in the area east of
Third Street.
The ordinance, however, will
create enforcement problems
for the city, Councilor
Eric Pardee said.
"What are we going to have,

Weldon said he recognized
that some problems may still
occur, but if the proposed ordi-
nance were passed, it would at
least discourage problems, he
said. He also said that the

Concerns about a funding shortfall for the Mayport
Ferry are nothing new.
More than a decade ago, the state unloaded responsi-
bility for the popular river boat to Duval County, which
has since contracted with a private concern to keep the
ships running.
Jacksonville officials have recently expressed concern
about the bottom line for the ferry and started seeking
additional funding to offset the difference between rider
revenues and operating costs.
Much talk has been made of securing state funding for
the ferry and it appears that some but not all of the
needed money might be forthcoming from Tallahassee.
Another possible source of funds that has not been
fully explored is the Nassau County Commission. Many
of those riding the ferry are going to or from Nassau
County where they are either working or visiting. In
either event, Nassau County reaps an economic benefit
from the ferry operation and should have a'stake in its
financial viability. Both Duval County and Nassau
County officials could and should craft an operat-
ing and fiscal plan for the ferry to insure its continued
A little cooperation between neighbors could go a long
way to preserving what is both a treasured resource and a
,valuable link in the area's transportation system.

Residents should not abandon pets

To the editor:
I'm not sure who to contact
on:this story, but I will try you
first. I read that there will be
another mobile home park clos-
ing due to development, and I
.want to get this message out.
The people that are leaving
there need to take their pets
with them! So far with all the
mobile home parks closing, we
have found three dogs (that I
know of)...we were lucky
'enough to- find them homes
and I can't even begin to count
the cats!
The rescuers are working
night and day trapping'cats and
getting them spayed and
neutered and trying to find
them homes. The cost is coming
!out of their pockets because
ispay/neuter program only
allows so mucl' per person, the
other cost is depression because
they can't do it all...the cats
that they have found are starv-
ing, weak from malnutrition,
maimed, and pregnant.
I've seen them work day and
night every day. I have a job and
: can't put as much time in as
they do. I've seen them crying
and cried along with them,
because these cats are the sad-
dest little critters with no home
and no protection from the
mosquitoes, and the weather. I

took the one dog that they
found, and I can't find a home
for her because she is dog
aggressive and I already have a
dog, but my husband divided
our back yard so that we could
keep her...she is great with peo-
ple, just not other animals.
These people that take in the
cats as pets should at the very
least have them spayed or
neutered, and they should not
just move away and LEAVE
them. The cats can't live off
"birds" just as most people
think...they have been fed and
cared for by amazes
me that anyone can do that. I
think AC&C should' go through
the park and find out who owns
the cats and make these people
Responsiblee. They should be
fined for leaving them!
After the fire at Jax Humant
you would think people would
think twice about leaving their
family pets alone and deserted
and victim to the weather and
starvation and the evil that peo-
ple want to do them harm!
PLEASE do a story on this to
bring it to the Mayor's attention
or someone that can make peo-
ple take responsibility! .

Leaderads disturbing to reader

To the editor:
After looking thru The Beaches
Leader Friday, I felt I had to
speak my mind concerning
advertising in our paper.
In several previous editions,
you report on stopping prostitu-
tion along Mayport Road. That's
fine; that's wonderful. I agree!'
However, what I do not agree
with is your allowing advertis-
ing for a "show bar", aka "strip
club" AND an ad to "meet beau-
Stiful Russian women" "Russian
American dating/marriage
.agency" "It's absolutely FREE
to have a look.". You were even
nice enough to print an e-mail
address and phone number so

our children can "check it out."
So this is a form of advertising
for a possible prostitution or at
least a legal way to help a pimp
"sell his goods"?
I was. under the impression
that this was a "neighborhood"
paper. The newspaper's ads
should reflect the attitude of a
"good neighborhood"... Are you
getting this desperate for ad
There is an old saying "prac-
tice what you preach." I suggest
you follow that principle.

William, the King of the Blues

His name was William. We
attended the same junior high
school. He dropped out some-
time before senior high school
and slipped off everyone's
radar screen. It happens more
than any of us would care to
William was a skinny kid
who didn't have any friends.
Looking back, I guess you
could say William was mildly
retarded. Looking back, it
would be painfully honest to
admit that the kids William
tried so hard to fit in with were
cruelly indifferent to his
attempts at friendship. It's one
of those things that gnaws the
corners of your mind bloody
and ragged as you get older and
hopefully wiser. William
refused to be outdone by his
shortcomings ,
Every day, in his own way,
he was out there making
another pitcher of lemonade
out of the heap of lemons in
his life. I'm embarrassed to
admit that my classmates and I
were always there to make sure
\-iVlihml's basket \was brift' -
mnirg N;.ne of us ever 'et ouCt
to be willfully and wantonly
mean to William. It generally
doesn't begin that. way when
kids single out a particular kid
for teasing, but that's usually
the outcome.
William had his own way.of
coping. He carried around an
old guitar that was missing a
couple of strings. As I slip ever
closer to the edges of my own
life, I find myself contemplat-
ing that the, two strings absent
from William's pawn shop gui-
tar were eerily emblematic of
the things missing from
SWilliam's life.
The couple of-things that
might've made his life whole
the way a couple of strings
would've given his old guitar
completeness were respect and

"} :.w.

i -



acceptance. 'William got nei-
ther from his classmates. All he
had was that raggedy old.guitar
and the chords of loneliness he
learned. He couldn't even tune
the guitar but that didn't mat-
ter to
William. He was proud of the
instrument and carried it with
him everywhere, including
school and the classroom. I can
still see him strolling down the
road with his guitar slung
across his back. Denied admis-
sion to'the world of his school-'
mates, William created his p}i'
fantasy world. In it, he was
blues and guitar legend B.B.
King. In that world, there were
no handicaps, no classmates
who 'shunned his company,
only a stage, blues licks on a
fine guitar and thousands of
fans clamoring to be near him.
William practiced his art as
diligently as he could and the
only way he knew how. He'd
strike a few discordant licks on
that scuffed-up old guitar,,
croak a few lyrics, then end it
with a flourish, strumming the
strings loudly while' bending
forward from the waist to face
his audience' and growling,
"B.B. Kinggg!"
William was only too happy
to perform upon request.
Someone would walk up to

him and say, "Play some B.B.
King, William." He'd light up
like the pep rally bonfires he
never attended, unsling his
guitar, give his little perform-
ance and always end it the
same way, "B.B. Kinggg!" It
never dawned on William that
he was being made fun of.
Ironically, it never occurred to
any of us that our taunts were
music to William's ears. In his
mind, he was B.B. King and he.
had center.stage and an audi-
ence, if only for the moment.
The years passed and
William faded from out lives
like the words to a forgotten:
melody. \Ve all grew up and
went our separate ways and
mostly lost track of each other
the way kids from small towns
often do. I was in the military
and home on leave when con-
versation with some friends
finally got around to who was
doing what..I happened to ask
whatever became of William.
He hanged himself from: a
pecan tree in his backyard one
afternoon, someone said. The

more guilty had I.purchased
the rope and fashioned the
noose. I suspect most of my
friends probably felt the same.
No one said anything else
about William. I've never
heard his name mentioned
A wise man said we should
make a list of all those we've
harmed and be willing to make
amends to them. Sometimes
that means apologizing to the
dead, to the Williams of this
world whose mortal remains
lie in graveyards in places we'll
never know. I'm so sorry,
William. I hope you got the gig
you wanted but never got here
.on Earth.

Changes coming to ShetterAvenue will hurt residents

Changes coming to Shetter Avenue will hurt residents

To the editor:
It's always enjoyable to see,
The Leader in my mailbox.
Six years ago I thought was
smart in buying Imy mobile
home in Golfair. Now I'm not
so confident. Then there were
five mobile home parks down
Shetter.and soon there will be
zero at'the beaches. I've been
retired two years and am just
waiting on double knee
replacement at the V.A. hospi-
tal in Gainesville so i have
major problems.
Now I'm fixing to be evicted
from the lot my home sits on.
Two years ago my home was
worth $25,000, now it won't
bring $10,000. You see, I must
spend $2,000 to have a
$12,000. huge screened-in
patio torn off before I can
move my home. But that's
nothing compared to half of
my neighbors.
You see we have 96 lots, not
128 like the April 13 newspaper
stated, less the 22 lots that are
setup for R.V users only (travel
trailers and motor homes only)
and that means we only have
74 mobile home lots here for
permanent homes (semi-per-
manent). Over half of these are
retirees and some of the homes
have been here for 40-50 years.
You take Tony who is a veter-
an and disabled and over 75
years old who lives across the
street or the couple who live on
my left side, Norman is a dec-.
orated Marine veteran and
nearly disabled and they are
over 75 years old, or the couple
who live on my right side, just

located here from Ohio two
years ago and put in new floors
and all new windows last year
and they too are over 75 years
of age, But guess what they and
many others face, their homes
cannot possibly be moved.
That's what I said, they cannot
be moved from their present
location, not anyone of them.
They and many more will lose
their homes and stand to get
zero $ for the home they so
dearly love.
The stress we are experienc-
ing is excruciating.The 66-year-
old lady behind me was so
stressed-out that she died three
months ago, she just didn't
want to be uprooted and forced
to move after so many years of
living here.
The city has spent millions
of $ on sewers, water, street
work, curbs, sidewalks, land-
scaping and quadrupling of the
run-off pond in order to
accommodate a buyer for this
property. Plus there's the cost
of the traffic study, and i do
hope they used the right num-
ber of lots here for that study.
There are so many homes
here that will not be acceptable
in another mobile home park.
Some parks require new mobile
homes to get in and others
require it to be no older than
five years.
Why didn't the city buy it
and hold it for a school loca-
tion in the future? After all, it
has two football fields beside it
and a half dozen softball fields.
It has the .golf driving range
and golf course at the south

end of the property and these
make it the noisiest place at the
beach.With all the ball games
and all the balls flying in and
all the golf balls flying in and
all the noise coupled with it,
this place will never fly as
apartments or condos. I
thought I would go nuts, my
first year living here.
, Put that together with the
band practices, the police prac-
tice with stun-grenades in the
middle of the night, the beauti-
ful warehouses on the eastside
and the lovely block walls on
the back of the shopping cen-
ter directly in our front gate
and you have a disaster in the
It appears that a traffic
calamity is in the making at
1300 Shetter Ave. what with all
the traffic from the police cars
and the resupply trucks servic-
ing the shopping center from
the back of the businesses and
the building of three times the
number of apartments there as
opposed to the present number
of mobile homes and now the
addition of the post office in
the shopping center. Most resi-
dents know how much traffic
that will generate, it appears
there may be more traffic at
that section of Shetter Avenue,
than on the five lanes of Beach
Boulevard at the same address.
I wonder if the police depart-
ment and the citizens of that
area want these changes.

W hat would this world
be like without vol-
Prime group examples are
our current, all-volunteer
armed forces. In civilian life,
particularly in our armed
forces veterans' organizations,
such as the America Legion,
the work of volunteers is an
essential element., re, mem-
.bers will kick up their heels
and have fun-filled times, but
doing good deeds is always in
the forefront.
"Support our troops" has
almost become a trite expres-
sion in the general population,
but American Legion folks real-
ly do it.
One of those people is Mary
Ellen Bolin of the Legion's
Post 129 Auxiliary Unit in Jax
Beach. She's been such an
outstanding ,volunteer that
she's the subject of a special
memorandum written by Unit
Secretary Renee Schlatter and
endorsed enthusiastically by
Auxiliary President Maggi
McCall. Here are excerpts:
"For Mary Ellen Bolin, every
waking hour focuses on bring-
ing good, hope; happiness,
and joy to not only our Unit
but also the civilian and mili-
tary families located within
our community....Every day
Mary Ellen hits the road full
tilt with purpose and passion.
She has personally con-
tributed 757 volunteer hours
to' th'.Auxiliary arid the com-
irnuitv 'in 2006-2007...". The
number of projects that Mary
Ellen has worked on during
'the past year is incredible.
Following are examples from
Renee's memo listing 20
major efforts:
Under "Troop Activities":
"(Mary. Ellen) Arranged a
donation program for our
troops fighting in Iraq in the
(potentially lifesaving) 'Silly
String' project for forward
observers to detect trip wires
in darkness in war zones."
Other undertakings. in this
category were monthly sup-
portive letters to service mem-
bers; teaming with local
schools to send Christmas
cards to Mayport's shipboard
sailors; providing Valentine's
Day cards and other morale
boosters, including books; etc.
Mary Ellen also was instru-
mental in a number of USO
activities, especially distribu-
tion of Blue Star Banners to
families with service mem-
bers, plus help to the local
community; e.g., clothes for
the homeless, Christmas toys,
and baby items for needy
families. Moreover,
she"...found more than 103
hours to give to the American
Legion, the SAL (Sons of the
American Legion), and the
Auxiliary, whenever asked...."
Considering her selfless
devotion to good causes, she
must be a terrific teacher, hav-
ing performed full time as one
for over three decades,
Winston Churchill said,
"You make a living by what
you get, but you make a life
by what you give." Mary Ellen
clearly has a good heart and
oodles of energy. Renee says
she epitomizes the phrase
"Small but Mighty." I agree.
Let's cheer for this Champion

Irene Greenman Phillips, a
longtime resident of
Jacksonville's Northside and
Atlantic Beach, dlied April 13,
2007. She was 9Q.
TPillips was born' in
Dearborn, Mich. to Amie and
Mina Greenman, the third child
among one son and five daugh-
ters. Her father was transferred
by Ford Motor Co. to the South,
and the family settled in the
Jacksonville area.
Phillips raised four sons by
two husbands, working hard to
make ends meet but also
encouraging them to strive for
excellence, the family said. All
four graduated from the
University of Florida, where her

help motivated students from
north Florida study abroad.
Phillips lived for 30 years on

accountant for Duval Jewelry
Stores, then worked for more
than 10 years for the actuary

years. She was known as "the
walking lady" for her dedicated
long walks, and also was known
for the flowers she grew and pies
she baked for family and

Sassy Strings play ukes together

The "Sassy Strings," a group of
senior ukulele players, held a Ty
Party.recently for members with
milestone birthdays: 7-ty(70), 8-
ty(80), 9-ty(90).
The group of ukulele players
has'been together for five years
and began with four people and
has grown to include a dozen,
according to longtime member
Jodi Tipton of Jacksonville
Beach. She said her mother
taught her to play and to keep
the tradition going she gave
each of her children's families a
ukulele for Christmas.
Tipton said Micki Williams
and Dottie McLaughlin are rel-
atively new to the ukulele, but
that the group's other members
have played the instrument
Tipton said she put her
ukulele away when her children
were small and it stayed away
for 20 years. She brought it out
again because of Margie
Cumming, who is the group's
longest-running member.

"We started in Ponte Vedra in
the '80s," said Cumming. "Jodi
came into that group, and Bill
[Palmer]. Carroll Hebbel was in
that group, too. We're the only
ones from the original group."
Cumming got her first ukulele
when she was 12.
"My mother knew 3-4 chords,
taught them to me and here
we are. If you do the chords and
sing, you can do it."
Cumming's mother thought
entertainer Arthur Godfrey's
plastic ukuleles, which sold for
$2, were "kind of tacky. Actually
he opened up that field for so

been playing the ukulele since
he was 14 but "never continu-
ous until I came here, found
they had a group."
A member of Sassy Strings for
three years, Melcher said the
ukulele is a "simple instrument
to play, only four strings. A gui-
tar is much harder. It appealed
to me."
Hebbel, who like Melcher is

turning 90, said he started play-
ing as a teen.
The Baltimore Sun retiree got
his first ukulele through an ice
cream giveaway during the

Melcher, Hebbel and other
members of Sassy Strings said
they were fans of ukulele player
Godfrey, whose radio-TV-films
career ran from 1945 to 1972.
The Sassy Strings also includes
Larry Biggins, Sylvia Cotner,
Catherine Adams and Palmer.
The first song played at the
group's Ty party was "Shine on
Harvest Moon," followed by
"For Me and My Gal" and "That
Old Gang of Mine." Next up was
"Pearly Shells." Their song list
included 13 other tunes.
One of the last songs they
sang was "Woe Is Me," which

that their dinner still hadn't
arrived. It was brought in short-
ly after.

V VMy beloved nagged
me for years to get rid of sou-

of marriage, but I never did.
Every January I make the
same resolution clear out
every closet, drawer, and shelf
and dispose of things I no

or read. Easier said than done.
My bookshelves and desk are
overflowing \ith papers, books,
magazines and family photos
that deserve to be put in
albums. My kitchen cabinets
and dining room buffet are
home to four sets of dinner-
ware and many unusual pieces
of pottery and crystal that I
cherish, but do not use. My
closet is filled with enough out-

something different every day
for months.
I know I have_to declutter

It didn't take us long to select

complement our eclectic fur-

me to acknowledge the urgent

Five big rooms, two walk-in
closets, and two hallways were
targeted to receive new floors.
Every room had to be emptied
which meant removing any-
thing inside some of the furni-

promised to finish the entire
job in three days, we needed
two weeks to transfer every-
thing to the extra bedrooms we
use as storage.

Elementary school students previous-
ly served in special education programs
will be reassigned to their neighbor-
:hood schools for inclusive education
starting next school year, according to
a recent letter to educators from Dural
County Public School Superintendent
Dr. Joseph Wise.
"Research shows that when children
with disabilities have opportunities to
work and play together with their non-
disabled peers, their academic, commu-
nication and social skills improve,"
Wise's letter said.
"At the same time, non-disabled stu-
dents have more positive attitudes
toward diversity, are more likely to

engage in relationships with individu-
als with disabilities in their adult lives
and experience greater levels of
achievement in schools themselves."
Students returning to their home
schools will include the majority of
those who are currently eligible for and
receiving services in programs for stu-
dents with specific learning disabili-
ties, other health impairments [aca-
demic] severe language impairments,
educable mental handicaps, and devel-
opmental delays [kindergarten].
SStudents served in self-contained
programs due to significant cognitive
impairments or who are iri need of
intensive behavioral support would not
be considered for implementation.
"The biggest misconception when
people hear inclusion, is that we are

putting all of these children in the
schools with no support," said Gail
Roberts, operations. supervisor for
exceptional education and student
services for Duval County Public
"We are- not raking any blanket
decisions. The IEP [individual educa--
tion plan] team will come together and
make decisions for each individual
child. We already have the resources
and teachers to service these children
but we will be reassigning the support
staff to get the resources where the kids
are. It's important for people to know
what it is and what it isn't."
According to Roberts, the decision
will effect about 1,500 students, dis-
Elementary schools will be adding

anywhere from six to about 20 students
per school. Children with similar dis-
abilities who are returning to their
neighborhood elementary schools are
already being serviced at their neigh-
borhood middle and high schools.
"The hardest thing is is the relation-
ships the children and parents have in
the schools they are in," Roberts said
after a meeting with parents, of special
education students.
"Moving to a new school is hard for
any child because they get attached to
the school. One of the things parents
are concerned about is trusting their
home school."

Hartley said, tiietias always

mother was "a fabulous cook
and baker."-
Hartley said her mother
was able to cook everything

where she became amatiar

Now rettied' Pi8Ai ateer
in nursing that'incli ed .15
years at the Jacksonville
Heart Center, Hartley said
she looks for ways to incor-
porate healthy ingredients
and lower the fat content in
what she cooks.
To boost the nutrition of
salads, she said she tosses in
sunflower seeds for folic acid
and avocados for vitamin A.
Fresh fruit and fresh veg-
etables, especially spinach,
are frequently part of meals

she prepares.
Hartley, who cooks almost
daily, also likes to entertain.
Good organization and smart
'menu planning help to make
entertaining manageable -
even for 40 or more guests,
she said.

She calls herself a "servant
leader" within the group,.
which meets on a weekfiight.
She said many of the 17 par-

Hartley saw this as an
opportunity to serve the

These doctors marry technology to

compassion in a new family practice

\\e all want the combination of the latest tech-
nology and the wisdom of experience when we
seek medical care. No where is the personal touch
so important. \When Dr. Michael Haghighi and
Dr. Roshni Patel Haghighi planned for thejr med-
ical office, they dedicated themselves to providing
all of these elements. That plan is now a reality
and it is available to patients in a sparkling, new
professional center just minutes from the Beach.
The Drs.' Haghighi have a state of the art med-
ical facility that is "paperless". From your
appointment scheduling to your x-ray, vital signs
and medical records, every aspect of your care is
electronically recorded. "We electronically capture
all patient information," explains Dr. Michael
When your doctor meets with you, he or she can
instantly review all information, minimizing the
chance of error, and speeding up the process. If Dr.
another consultation is appropriate, your records ly-o
can be put on a cd and you can hand carry them
with you or they can be emailed. This office will be a
revelation to many as to the extensive benefits of tech-
nology in speed of care. efficiency and accuracy.
But it is not necessary to give up personal attention
and compassionate care for technology. "You will
always see a doctor," Dr. Michael Haghighi says. "Every
patient will see the doctor and receive the time and
attention he or she needs." The technology just allows
more time for this. "Waiting is never an issue here," he
adds, explaining that in many offices you routinely sit
in a waiting room past the expected appointment time.
Every effort will made so this does not happen at the
Haghighi Family and Sports Medicine office.
It is even possible to be seen the same day you call for
an appointment. As \ou can see, there are revolution-
ary ideas at work here.
'This is a family-oriented practice," he says. The two
doctors here are husband and wife, and have young
children of their own. "Our patients become part of our
family, and we treat you like we do family members.
We have made our office as warm and inviting to every-
one, especially children." All ages are welcome as
patients here, from infants to geriatrics. "We treat
women's health issues." As the name recognizes, this is
also a place for athletes of all ages.
Dr. Michael Haghighi is one of the team physicians for
Nease, Fletcher and University Christian High Schools.


CyP _

Roshni Patel Haghighi and Dr. Michael Haghighi present a fami-
riented medical office for all ages.
"I take pleasure in seeing these athletes in action, and I
am reminded of when I was at that stage." An athlete
himself, still active in soccer and tennis, he is particu-
larly well qualified in sports medicine.
After completing his residency at LSU, he was accept-
ed to a Sports Medicine Fellowship with the Mayo
Clinic in Jacksonville. He trained with top orthopedic
physicians, physical therapists and neurologists in all
non-surgical procedures. He brings this specialized
.training in the muscular-skeletal structure to benefit his
patients who want non-surgical answers to their situa-
In working with young athletes, the speed and effi-
ciency of the Haghighi office is even more impressive.
."W'hen a kid goes down, parents know they have only
to call the next morning and they will get rapid care,"
he says.
Blood work is done on site, as well as x-rays. This
information is then provided by email for consultation
with radiologists or other specialists when needed.
One of the most exciting aspects of the Haghighi
Family & Sports Medicine facility is unique, computer-
ized Spinal Decompression. Those who have neck and/
or lower back pain can understand why this is exciting.
Before considering surgery, this technique allows a com-
fortable approach to easing the pain. There is no
pulling, no attachment; you relax, lying on your back,
while the procedure is done. It is completely comput-
erized and adjusted to each patient's level of need, based
on your MRI. You can watch television or drift off to
sleep. This is fully FDA approved, and you can arrange
financing in this office.
The doctors met while attending LSU. Both are board
certified physicians in Family Practice, and both have
worked in other practices at the Beaches. "We decided
to create a family-oriented practice that had cutting
edge technology." Michael, who is of Persian heritage,
and Roshni, who is of Indian heritage, achieved this
goal with the opening at 9191 RG Skinner Pkway, Suite
901 of the Haghighi Family & Sports Medicine office.
Only minutes from the Beaches, where both doctors
have patients, it is an easy drive to a fresh, new area just
off of 9A south.
Feel free to call the office, 904-519-8895, for informa-
tion or for that important appointment.

Panthers blank Sharks in playoffs


Jackson is

thrilled to

be a starter

once again

orida's championship foot-
ball season was bittersweet
for former Fletcher High
star Kyle Jackson. While the
thrill of reaching the BCS title
game and receiving a glittering
diamond ring as a result of beat-
ing Ohio State were obvious
highlights, frustration through-
out the season grew as the jun-
ior saw little playing time
behind incumbent free safety
Reggie Nelson.
It was a difficult transition for
the Neptune Beach native who
went from starting five games as
a freshman and the first six as a
sophomore, to a back-up role
and part-time special teams play-
But just three months after
Florida crushed the Buckeyes,
and with Nelson on his way to
the NFL, Jackson says he learned
a lot from the experience and is
ready to put those lessons to
good use now that he's a starter
again on defense.
"Reggie Nelson did a great job
and I got to sit back and kind of
watch how he played and [it]
sort of put me back in. my
place," Jackson said following
Saturday's Orange and Blue
spring game. "And now I'm
starting again and it feels good
to be out here. I had a great
spring and we're all just looking
forward to getting things going
It was a few games into the
2005 season when some among
the Gator faithful began grum-
bling that Jackson was giving
up too may big plays. They
never doubted the 6'1", 200-
pounder's athletic ability, but
questioned whether he could
deliver big hits when necessary
or help stop the run.
Now, however, Jackson is
looked up to by teammates as a
leader. He and strong safety
Tony Joiner are the only seniors
on Florida's defense, a unit deci-
mated by graduation and early
departures to pursue NFL
But if others are worried that
the Gators' D might not live up
to expectations in 2007, Jackson
is not.
"We lost a lot of starters," he
said, "but I think the talent
level is the same. It's just that
last year there were a lot of sen-
iors on the team and just great
pride. They had been here for a
long time. We've got a lot of
learning to do, but talent-wise I
think it's the same."
Joiner readily agrees and
thinks Florida might even be'
better in some aspects. "We
could be faster in certain areas,"
he said. "We're young but we've
got talent all over the field on
Through long stretches of the
2005 and 2006 campaigns,
through grueling practices,
weight room sessions and con-
ditioning drills, Jackson said dis-
appointment with his role
mounted but his discontent was
never aimed at Gators coach
Urban Meyer, Nelson nor any
"As a sophomore and junior I
was kind of frustrated with
myself because I knew what my
mistakes were and I needed to
fix them," he explained. "When
you know what they are you get
frustrated, but you have to get
back into the film room and get
back on it. That's what I did."
With spring practices out of
the way and renewed self-confi-
dence as a cornerstone of the
Florida team that will defend its
national championship, Jackson
says he's looking forward to one
more game in the immediate
"I'll try to get back for the
spring game at Fletcher," he
said. "It's always good to see the
coaches again and help out in
any way I can."

PALATKA Although the
Nease High School softball
team easily made it past the
first round of the District 5-4A
Tournament with a 14-0 win
over Atlantic High School,
advancing deeper into the
postseason will be tougher for
the Panthers.
They still had to get past
Palatka High
School, the
district's top
seed and a \
state-ranked '
squad. ,
"I was I
pleased with

coach Brantley ,

lowing the 14-

ance against PANTHEF
the Sharks,
"But we have a lot of things
we need to bring to the table
if we want to walk away with
a win against Palatka."
The Panthers started strong
with a leadoff triple from
Clare Wamsley, followed by a
RBI double from Kristyn
By the second inning, Nease
held a 6-0 lead and showed
no signs of slowing down.
Mantia hit a three-run triple
in the second, Victoria
Rosenblum and Lindsey
Franco also batted in runs in
the inning.
But despite the numerous
hits and runs, Mack says the
Panthers will still have to per-
form better if they want to
advance to the district final.
"They're going to. have to
step it up a notch," Mack
said. "We did really well
today but there are a lot of

things we didn't do well, little
things that in a game like
[against] Palatka, if we don't
do those things, it can make a
difference on the outcome.
"We didn't have too much
of a game plan against
Atlantic. Palatka is going to be
a different ballgame all
together. Hopefully it will be
a low scoring game and we'll
have to focus in a little harder
at the plate

Nease with four runs and a

twice. Franco had two hits
including a double and two
"I was proud of their per-
formance today," Mack said.
"We worked hard in [batting
practice] on Friday and hope-
fully it pays off for us."
Atlantic split two games
against the Panthers this sea-

Nease before rebounding with

Tebow's painno discomfort for Meyer


GAINESVILLE Most football
coaches are troubled when their
starting quarterback has a sore
throwing shoulder. Urban Meyer
couldn't be happier.
In fact, after witnessing Tim
Tebow's performance in the
Orange and Blue game Saturday,
the Gators head coach says the
injury has made his signal-caller
a more complete QB.
"Tim has a sore shoulder,"
Meyer said, "and I think it's one
of the greatest things to ever hap-
pen to him.
"I think he learned a lot from
Chris [Leak] about game manage-
ment. about touch and complet-
ing passes. Just the way he threw
the short ball, very impressive,
and the way he got the ball out.
The last week and a half, he's
been tremendous. He's ready to
go. Tim Tebow is, ready to go
play quarterback at Florida."
In front of 47,500 fans at
Florida Field Saturday, Tebow
completed 17 of 27 passes for
216 yards and three touchdowns
to lead his Blue team to a 27-21
win over the Orange squad.
Of significance to most fans,
however, was the sight Tebow
throwing the football rather than
tucking it under his arm and
.running as he did in spot duty
most of last season. In 2006, the
back-up QB had 89 runs and
tossed only 33 passes.
"It felt good getting a chance
to sit back there and throw it
around a little bit," Tebow said.
"That's what I like to do."
Florida offensive coordinator
and quarterbacks coach Dan
Mullen said the former Nease
High star was forced to concen-
trate on mechanics as a result of
his arm trouble.
"He had a little bit of a shoul-
der issue early in the spring and
we had to really pay attention
and adjust his throwing motion
slightly," Mullen explained. "By
doing that, it really caused him
to focus on how to throw the
ball the right way.
"It's really helped him develop
a touch, develop balance, devel-
op consistency and accuracy
with his throws. He's really spent
a lot of time, from the bowl prac-
tice on, of really focusing on bal-
ance and fundamentals of the
throwing motion."
At Nease, Tebow relied on a
cannon-like left arm to get the
ball downfield there weren't

many touch passes in the
Panthers' playbook and threw
for more than 9,500 yards and
95 TDs as a starter.
As a freshman last season,
Meyer said he was concerned
that Tebow's throwing motion
was elongated and he didn't get
rid of the ball fast enough. As
with many young quarterbacks,
the velocity of Tebow's passes
was also cause for alarm.
"The thing that makes him
different than any player I've
been around is his drive, his
competitiveness," Meyer said.
"Tim's an extremist. That's good
to have, but at times you have to
learn to control it. Especially
playing quarterback, with touch
"It's great when you make the
receivers' hands hurt, but go
complete some balls.
"I don't believe he was an
excellent thrower the first half of
last season," Meyer continued. "I
think [now] he's an excellent
thrower. He and coach Mullen
have a good deal going right
now. They prepare very well

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


Seminoles, Gators headed in opposite directions

The main impression one
can get after the Florida
and Florida State football
teams wrapped up spring
cleaning with the traditional
intra-squad games is some-
thing fans could have guessed
without games.
The Gators are loaded at
quarterback. The Seminoles
are not. It's not a matter of
hking outnumbered or even
two each to choose from.
: Iltl.i coach Urban Meyer
long qg-o put the mantle of
No. I on Tim Tebow. For bet-
ter or worse, the Timmy who
lit up scoreboards in our own
backyard for the past three
years is the man.
Seminoles coach Bobby
tB wdlcin in his own "don't
pin me down" way has said,
in effect, that the starter is
going to be Drew
Weatherford. Or Xavier Lee.
Unless a dark horse pops up to
beat them both in preseason
That's as definitive as a
weather report from Russia. If
Uncle Bobby had a clue about
a lad who could out-gun both
Weatherford and Lee, it would
have leaked out weeks ago.
Truth is, neither Drew nor
Xavier shook the joint with
cheers Saturday in the Garnet
and Gold scramble. Each of
these darlings completed 13
passes, but also tossed four to
the other team. The best sum-
up came not from the head
man, but from new offensive
coordinator Jimbo Fisher who
was brought in to clean up
that Seminole mess.
"The things we did today



will lose football games
matter how many touch
downs you score," he sa
This has been a bugab
the Noles for several yei
now. Fisher continued,
don't know why they di
[fumbles, etc.]. If I knew
I would have told them

gusted. I just thought w
gotten past some of tho
Jimbo's not alone. Ser

From the look of thin
the reservation, the stat
affairs is about the same
when they closed camp
season. The "new look'

spring practice to get
kinks out.
Just for a refreshing ci
though, Florida State fan
would like to see the kii
somewhere besides at qi
If the Seminoles are h


growing pains, the opposite
seems to be true in
Gainesville. Tebow is one
story everyone is familiar
with; his greatness and com-
plete mastery of the new job
and everything. But there are
other tales as well.
Meyer's assessment of
Tebow couldn't have been
more glowing if Tebow had
.:' written it himself. The kid
S from Nease High has been just
;ON "tremendous" during the past
week and a half, engineering
the Gators offense Saturday
with all the ease of a senior
no veteran.
I- "He's ready to go," Meyer
iid. said. Even a slight injury
)oo to seems to have helped him,
irs although it's difficult to see
"I' how perfection can be
id it improved upon. A sore shoul-
that, der, Meyer explained, helped
before Tebow develop a better throw-
lly dis- ing motion, enabling the
e had young QB to complete short
se passes. If Tebow gets any bet-
ter they probably just won't
ninole be able to stand it.
ht so, But what about the other
end? Even the greatest quar-
gs on terback who ever played the
e of game can't win if his receivers
as don't catch the ball. Look at
last the Jaguars' Byron Leftwich. A
with passer needs a receiver who
nse is not only catches the ball, but
ing, hangs onto it.
y have The Gators have had several
the in Meyer's brief tenure, but
they're talking like they may
change, have found the best one yet.
ns This spring the Easter
nks Bunny visited Gainesville and
uarter- brought them one Louis
Murphy, who caught every-
.aving thing but the mumps

Saturday. He had eight recep-
tions for 129 yards and one
touchdown as his Blue team
defeated the Orange 27-21
before 47,500 cheering fans.
In the old days, the Gator
varsity would do well to draw
47,000 fans if they gave away
autographed cheerleaders.

They tell you Murphy is so
improved they can't believe
he's the same player he was in
his first year. It must be the
influence of Andre Caldwell,
who became Murphy's new
roommate. Andre is one of the
surest catchers and maybe it
rubbed off on young Louis.

The right roomie can some-
times help.
A report on the Georgia
Bulldogs next week.
Meanwhile, it appears that
Florida State has a big job
matching the Gators' offense,
but who knows what a few
months can change?


Baseball Award
The Jacksonville Suns have
announced the creation of an
award for the best high school

What To Know When Buying A

Deck For Your Home

When it comes to home
improvements, deck systems top
the list with an estimated four
million new decks built annually
in the U.S. and 40 million remod-
eled decks gracing today's homes.
This rising trend has led manufac-
turers to offer a wider variety of
deck materials, styles, and
options, but choices can be over-
While wood has traditionally

won the popularity contest for
decks due to its natural appear-
ance, vinyl and composites (a
highly-durable blend of plastic
and wood fibers) are becoming
choice materials for outdoor
home entertaining due to their
combination of carefree mainte-
nance, aesthetics, and value.
Why are more people "decking
out" their homes with vinyl and
composite materials? One big rea-
son is time. Working families
value leisure time more than ever
because they have less time to
maintain their outdoor environ-
ments. Vinyl and composite
decks are virtually maintenance-
free, requiring only a yearly
power-wash to maintain, whereas
wood can fade and deteriorate
requiring regular stain and
sealant applications.
Consumers are also choosing
vinyl and composites to save
money. While these materials
have a higher up-front cost than
wood, they last longer and deliver
a total return on investment in
just 5-7 years. Busy consumers
who want to enhance their
home's value feel vinyl and com-
posites are well worth the invest-

Be it wood, composites, oi
vinyl, when shopping for the
right deck supplier keep several
things in mind. Not all deck sys-
tems are the same. Find a supplier
with a complete products package
that includes not only basic decl
materials, but compatible rails,
posts, and trim to create an inte-
grated look that adds curb appeal
to your home exterior. Whether
you're a do-it-yourself homeown-
er or residential contractor, you
might also want to consider uti-
lizing an experienced deck com-
pany that delivers custom, inno-
vative solutions to suit specific
needs and tastes.
