Fred Jones cast the opposing vote, urging
city planners to defer the vote to allow time
to inject a more urban design into site plans
for the supermarket.
Jones, a transportation planner with
Prosser Hallock, said planners should con-
centrate on less parking and more open
space and pedestrian access to break free of
the suburban design standards that have
created the idea of "free parking."

asks Beaches

to fight for



Work at Keman and
Atlantic blvds. eyed

The city of Atlantic Beach is opposing a pro-
posed Jacksonville bill to terminate a project
that would allow an overpass at the comer of
Atlantic Boulevard and Keman Boulevard.
The other Beach cities were asked to do the
same by Jacksonville City Councilor Art
Graham, who represents the Beaches on the
county board.
The purpose of the overpass is to allow driv-
ers on Atlantic Boulevard to easily pass ovel
the, Keman Botlevard intersection, Graham
said. The project was promised to the Beaches
as part of the Better Jacksonville Plan, he said.
A bill to eliminate the project was recently
proposed by Jacksonville Councilor Lynette
'Jcks6nvillelBeach and Neptune Beach city
officials said they did not find out about Self's
proposed legislation in time to respond before
the bill was introduced at Tuesday's council
meeting. A final decision on the matter is
expected at the May 22 Jacksonville City
Council meeting.
"This road is jam-packed and dangerous
right now," said Atlantic Beach Commissioner
Jamie Fletcher at a meeting Monday.
"I think we need the overpass there," he
said, explaining that Atlantic Boulevard is one
of the Beaches' primary evacuation routes.
In a letter to Beaches officials, Graham
urged them to support his efforts to get the
overpass built.
The Atlantic Beach Commission directed
staff to write a letter to oppose the bill.

Museum asks AB for $ early

Members of a preservation society
requested money from the city of
Atlantic Beach to preserve a piece of
Beaches history.
The Jacksonville Beach Elementary
Preservation Society asked the city of
Atlantic Beach for a .lump sum of
$25,000 the remaining money that
the city originally designated to be paid
to the fund in $5,000 increments over
the course of five years.
The society has been working for sev-
eral years to preserve a portion of the
original Jacksonville Beach Elementary
School, which served African American
students at the Beaches, and create a
"The project itself is one of which the
entire Beaches community can be
proud of," said Walter Bell, president of

The Preservation Society, at a meeting
The group has moved the approxi-
mately 2,400-square foot-building from
its original site to 4th Street and '4th
Avenue South.
The. project is more than 80 percent
complete and the additional money
should be enough for them to obtain
their certificate of occupancy, according
to Brenna Durden, who serves as the
group's legal counsel.
The museum has been scheduled to
open this spring.
The Atlantic Beach City Commission
will have to vote on the request because
it requires a budget change, city officials
"It's a budget change for us is all and
I think it's one we can handle," said
Dezmond Waters who was acting as
Mayor Pro, Tem in Mayor Don
Wolfson's absence.

Rape suspect nets exposure charge in jail

The 35-year-old man charged in the
rape of a 75-year-old South Ponte Vedra
Beach woman has been charged with
exposing his sexual organs in the St.
Johns County jail, where he has been
held since two days after the rape.
Mastho Davis, 35, is charged with
exposure of sexual organs, a misde-
meanor, police said. Davis is charged
with sexual battery, kidnapping and
aggravated battery in the March 31
attack at a woman's home in the 2000
block of Ponte Vedra Boulevard.

He is scheduled to go before Circuit
Judge Wendy Berger in St. Augustine at
1:30 p.m. Monday on those three
felonies as well as a charge of carrying a
concealed weapon.
According to the St. Johns County
Clerk's Office, a first appearance court
date of June 5 has been set on the mis-
demeanor charge.
Davis could face up to 25 years in
prison if convicted on all charges,
according to Sgt. Chuck Mulligan,
spokesman for the St. Johns County
Sheriff's Office.

Meetings start
on NB's future
The city of Neptune Beach
will hold the first of three
visioning meetings
The meeting will be held at
the First Christian Church of
the Beaches, 2125
Oceanfront and Seagate,
from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The meetings are part of
Councilor Fred Lee's 25-year
long range vision plan for
the city and are open to all.

Players staff says
sales good for May
The Players Championship's
move from March to May has
not slowed ticket sales, accord-
ing to tournament officials.
Now set for May 7-13, the
tournament will feature course
upgrades and a new club-
house. Interest in the event is
at an all-time high, according
to tournament officials.
Many corporate sales pack-
ages are already sold out and,
tournament officials said, lim-
ited grounds tickets and cor-
porate packages are going fast.
"The interest in this year's
Players is unprecedented,"
said executive director Brian
Goin. "There's so much antic-
ipation about all that's new to
see and experience."
Clubhouse tickets are no
longer available, but fans may
purchase the new Champions
Club tickets, providing access
to the clubhouse and the
Champions Club a new hos-
pitality tent. Also new this
year is the Marquee Club, a
hospitality venue adjacent to
the 16th green.
"Sales of our tickets and
packages have exceeded all
expectations," said Goin.

The city of Atlantic Beach has determined there will be five zones for the new
once a week trash collection, effective June 1. Areas that produce the most
garbage, yard and recycling waste will get the earliest collection in the week.
Yard waste, recycling and household trash will be collected concurrently on a
neighborhood's designated garbage day.

Charge ahead: Help teens with credit
A non profit organization is reaching out to help teens build a strong financial founda-
tion before the house of credit cards comes crashing down.
Take Charge America, Inc. has identified a five-point list of what not to do with a new
credit card also known as how to avoid irreparable and totally avoidable debt.
"Once kids turn 18, they have their first shot at establishing a positive credit history," said
Mike Sullivan, director of education for TCA.
Sullivan said in 2004, statistics showed 56 percent of college freshmen obtained their first
credit card at age 18.
The following could help protect financial viability and keep the creditors at bay:
*Don't go on a spending spree Just because you have the credit, doesn't mean you should
spend it all. A low limit such as $100 or $500 will help prevent large impulse buys.
*Don't test your credit limits Make a small purchase to kick off your credit history and
then make consistent payments. You don't want to be caught in an emergency situation
with a maxed out credit card.
*Don't share your credit information No one should have access to your credit informa-
tion, including close friends. Don't leave your monthly bill in plain sight, nor ask anyone
to hold onto your credit card. .This could leave you susceptible to fraud and identity theft.
*Read the fine print You need to know exactly what you are getting into before you sign
the contract.
*Don't be afraid to ask for help It's normal to encounter bumps along the road to estab-
lishing credit. Have an open dialogue with your parents and ask them to go over your cred-
it card bill if you are confused and broke.

he said. "This is an opportunity to do

The proposed plans exceed the

Publix already has the option to leave
the additional spaces unpaved but
they opted to include them to satisfy
the needs of all customers.

Mann said.

also supported the idea of an urban-

Publix to move in.
"We need to plan for the future,
not only the present," Loretta said.
"We need to begin creating a strong

not creating the vision of suburbia."
Project planner John Kidd said that

Solutions to speeding sought in Dolphin Cove

Diana Bryant knows a lot
about the traffic problems that
exist in Dolphin Cove.
As a deputy for the St. Johns
County Sheriff's Office,' she
drives down Dolphin Boulevard
and Marlin Avenue daily to
ensure the safety of the resi-
dents, she told some of those
residents Monday.
She said she continues to see
the same problems drivers
who speed through the residen-
tial neighborhood or disobey
the 25 mph speed limit.
"We get complaints on a regu-
lar basis," Bryant said at a meet-
ing at-the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library.
"This intersection is not work-
ing as it is. We have pretty much
done what we,can do."
Residents, Bryant, a consult-
ant and Greg Kennedy, traffic
and transportation manager for
the county, discussed possible
solutions to the problems at the
meeting that is part of a county
program to address traffic prob-
Paula Thomas said she was
concerned for her 3-1/2-year-old
daughter, Theresa, as well as for
the other children that play in
the community and at the park
on Dolphin Boulevard.
"The speeding that goes on
on Marlin, Dolphin and Del
Prado is like the back, end of
Daytona," she said.
"I see people of all ages speed-
ing. I also see people speeding

The Leader's Opinion

Enjoy Beach traditions

This weekend will offer a sure sign that school is about
to end for the year and that it will soon be time to trade
in schoolbooks for swimsuits.
This weekend is the annual Sandcastle Contest and
Beaches Parade. Both events recall a time when the
Beaches celebrated the official opening of the Beaches as
very few people called this area home year-round and the
area was largely dependent on seasonal visitors.
Much has changed since then.
One thing that has not changed, however, is the fact
that both the parade and sandcastle castle contests are
fun, free events open to all.
The sandcastle contest, sponsored by The Leader and the
City of Jacksonville Beach recreation department, will be
held Saturday morning on the sands at the foot of Beach
Boulevard. All participants will receive a T-shirt and win-
ners get trophies. There are still spots available and for
details about registering see page A-7.
The parade will be held Sunday afternoon in downtown
Jacksonville Beach.
So build a castle (or watch talented sand sculptors) and
enjoy a parade. You'll be participating in fun traditions.

AB elementary is superb

To the editor:
I'm floored! Virtually speech-
less. I am so elated with my
experiences at Atlantic Beach
Elementary School, that I just
have to spread the news. It isn't
often that people take the time
to show appreciation for the
good things that come our way.
No typically, human behavior
gravitates toward spreading neg-
ativity when we are disgruntled.
But let's celebrate, for one sec-
ond, a good thing that has hap-
Very recently I had an experi-
ence with the school that
deserves recognition.
I received a phone call from a
concerned teacher (we'll call
her Mrs. Smith since I don't
have permission to use her real
name) [about an incident
involving] one of my children
[not in her class]. No big deal,
you think, right? Wrong!
Her phone call to me was a
mere "heads up".
4 Nowbvt gotta tell'you this
j wert beyoid- dth' call of duty! I
say, BRAVO, to this teacher!
Technically, her job.starts and
stops with her students and her

classroom. But I think I can
speak for most parents when I
say THANK YOU! There isn't a
parent that I've shared my story
with who wouldn't have appre-
ciated that phone call.
Wouldn't it be a wonderful
system if all schools worked this
way? If teachers were encour-
aged to step outside of their
classroom "box" and all teachers
were empowered by the princi-
pal as in this school? Thank you
to Atlantic Beach Elementary. I
am proud to say I am a parent of
three small children at this
small community driven
school. It is obvious that this
principal supports the teachers
in their individual endeavors to
provide a stimulating educa-
tional environment in an ever
evolving profession.
I hope that this message is
heard loud and clear by all the
teachers out there who think
that their job stops at their class-
room door. A wise teacher once
told me: "I am not a teacher of
this classroom, I am a teacher dof
this school."

Euphoria follows pain of exercise

t the initial interview
with the young fitness
structor who was giv-
ing me a tour of my new gym,
he asked "So, what are your
goals at our exercise facility?" I
looked him dead in the eye
and said "Honey, I just want
the back of my thighs to stop
looking like risen bread
dough." His eyes became large,
and I watched him deliberate
as he chose his response.
He got the gist that I was a
no nonsense mom, and after
we recorded a few awkward
essentials, (weight, percent
body fat), we were off. He put
me through the fitness
machines, made a workout
plan, and nonchalantly (sinis-
terly) suggested I try a "spin"
class. He convinced me that it
was a short, low intensity ver-
sion of the class, and after I
saw some friends who were my
age and fitness walking in, I
said "OK".
That was my last moment of
"OK" for 30 minutes. Spin
class is a euphemism for "class
.of pain and medieval torture
on a" ,The
room went darl and had a, LJU
light that made all white
shirts, shoes, and teeth pop
out. I'm convinced this is so
you can't see the person's face
of agony beside you, so blind-
ly keep going. My saving grace
was that I was wearing all blue,
so no one would notice me
unless I smiled or ripped my
shirt off. The chance of either
occurring was slim to none.
I kept up every now and
then, but cringed when the
instructor got off her bike to
walk past the other 18-75 year
olds to make sure I still had a
pulse. ,After the class ended

she looked straight at me and
asked, "Who remembers their
first spin class and how much
they hated it and swore never
to come again?" Several peo-
ple raised their hand, and if
there had been a breath left in
my body I would have said
"You took the words right out
of my mouth, sister."
If I'd had the strength, I
would've hunted down and
harmed the knowing instruc-
tor who set me up, but all I
could do was drive home, rip
openia bag of Salt and Vjnegar
Potato Chips,, 4nd eat ,h4,,tH,.
bag. I'm not kidding.
A list of errands that had to
be done remained whether I
was exhausted or not. I show-
ered and set out. As I went
from store to store, cursing the
class under my breath, I
noticed something. I began
feeling like the kindest, happi-
est, and chirpy person that I
had been in a long time. I
became best friends with the
Home Depot lady, then
laughed, hugged, and told
witty stories to every person I
knew in the grocery store, after
which I merrily wrote a check

at the orthodontist as if I had a:
tree out back with hundred
dollar bills on it. ;
As the source' of these feel-
ings of health and gladness
became obvious, I had a feel-
ing somewhere between irrita-
tion and disgust. My latent
and seldom seen endorphins
were cruising through my
veins, making my brain come
alive and putting an almost
annoying spring in my step. I
knew better than to give credit
to the potato chips. The vile
and vicious spin class was star-
ing me in the face. . and
laughing. I hated that class,
couldn't wait for it to end, and
knew a fierce determination to
never do that to my body
again. But how could I dismiss
this euphoria?
The painful memories of the
class' final moments are too
fresh to let me return anytime
soon. The spin instructor was
yelling "Just imagine that you
see the finish line and sprint,
sprint, sprint to victory!" I
had a different word picture at
that. moment and it didn't
inclOude sprinting. .rlIt
was hanging by my fingernails
as my feet clawed for footing.
Why, why, why does it have
to be this way? Why can't we
get the same feeling of health
and vitality from doing laun-
dry or washing dishes, the
pain of which I no longer
notice? I'm sure there's an
answer, and equally as sure
that it won't make me feel any

Join meeting to discuss future of Neptune Beach

To the editor:
On October of last year, the
Neptune Beach City Council
embarked on developing a
"Future of Neptune Beach"
plan. A key component of
developing the long range
plan was to solicit input from
community stakeholders
throughout the city.
Beginning the last week of
April, three meetings are set to
allow interested citizens to
attend and submit ideas. The

April 26th
April 30th
May 1st

meeting dates are below.
I am encouraging interested
citizens to attend one of the
three meetings. We attempted
to provide three different dates
and locations to give our citi-
zen some flexibility in attend-
ing. All three meetings will be
similar in scope and content.
We will focus on describing
our city in year 2031 (Our
100th Anniversary). These
ideas will serve as guiding prin-
ciples as we develop our long

First Christian Church of the Beaches

city's comprehensive plan in
I hope interested citizens
will attend with a positive out-

YBAG needs support of many to assist area youth

To the editor:
Youth of the Beaches Arts.
Guild (YBAG) is a non-profit
organization formed in 1981.
It is sponsored by the
Jacksonville Beach Recreation
Department. The founders felt
that young people in our area
needed a summer program
that would encourage their tal-
ents and help build self-
esteem. YBag's first show was
held 27 years ago and, since
that time, the organization has
gained a reputation of creating
a wholesome, drug-free envi-
ronment for youth during the
summer months. In addition
to providing youth with an
understanding of teamwork,
strength, and a sense of self,
the group also produces a top-
notch musical at the conclu-
sion of the 6-week program.
Some of the shows performed
in the past have included
"Music Man", "Annie", "The
Wiz", "Gypsy", "The King and
I", "Anything Goes", "West

Side Story", "Li' Abner", and
"Little Shop of Horrors". [This
year] we are presenting
"OKLAHOMA!" July 20 and
21, 8 p.m. at Fletcher High
School Auditorium.
The Guild's aim is to encour-
age, instruct and guide youth
that express an interest in per-
forming arts. Our board of
directors is comprised of mem-
ber parents and volunteers
from the community who
donate long hours to provide
this theatrical experience for
the youth involved. ,The
organization is very pleased to
announce that the Directorial
Staff is comprised of alumni
from the program. Jennifer
Hendry is serving as Director,
Christine Bell is serving as
Musical Director, and David
Gano is Choreographer.
Various directors are from the
local community, providing
members the opportunity to
study acting, singing, and
dancing under professionals in

their field. The program is
open to all ages 9-19, and
everyone receives a part. The
cast consists of 40-60 mem-
bers. To encourage further
learning opportunities, the
program offers an apprentice
program where members are
selected to assist the directors
and technical staff. Y-BAG also
awards a scholarship each year.
Y-BAG depends upon the
community for support and
our annual budget has grown
to approximately $35k. Aside
from a stipend from the City
of Jacksonville Beach; our pri-
mary source of income is tick-
et sales, program advertising,
and sponsorships. W[ith] assis-
tance, we can continue to pro-
vide this very unique and valu-
able experience to the youth of
our community. Please join us
in spreading the word through
our local communities!

I need

a bag

"Who steals my purse steals
trash...." Shakespeare wrote.
W ell, I guess they did-
n't pay poets and
playwrights very
much in his day. Still, it's
interesting to note that men
apparently then carried what
now is usually considered a
female accessory.
My gal pal Ethel's purse has
always been the size equiva-
lent of a medium overnight
bag, but it's become kinda
heavy. This may be partly
from lugging around the
equivalent of a drug store,
plus enough quarters for the
American Legion dart
machines to run for a month.
Rumors that she also keeps a
set of wrenches there have
been proven inaccurate. There
would only be room for a
small bolt and possibly the
I may, be helping to make
an evidently developing
change in the U.S. male dress
code. It seems some men are
packing a purse of their own.
Anyway, the increased weight
of Ethel's satchel has put me
in charge of hauling it around
when we go out. If it gets
much heavier, I may have to
get a dolly to schlep it for my
dolly. Naturally, I take a bit of
ribbing when we enter and
leave Legion Post 129 with me
toting Ethel's tote bag. "Gosh,
your purse *is, really ,attrac-
tie," some cutup legionnaire
will comment. "Thank you,"
I often reply. "Actually, I'm .a
purser on shore leave."
Ethel appreciates not hav-
ing to strain herself with her
"suitcase." To. tell the truth, I
should take some of the
blame for its tonnage since I
occasionally ask her to let me
put equipment in it; e.g., a
tape recorder and/or a cam-
era. Considering all the gadg-
ets men cart around these
.days, including a cell phone,
maybe we should wear one of
those tool belts that tele-
phone linemen have. Either
that or don multi-pocket
"cargo pants."
I don't mind the good-
natured kidding that I'm sub-
jected to while transporting
Ethel's bag-cum-backpack.
Nevertheless, it was a satisfy-
ing role reversal for me to be
in the audience on April 14
when the Miss American
Legion Post 129 Beauty
Pageant was staged. The all-
male contestants wore
absolutely gorgeous female
apparel plus exquisite wigs, a
display worthy of anything
put on in Atlantic City. The
winner: Denny dun it!
I've had a marvelous time
complimenting them since
that night, and they've been
most gracious (and red-faced)
in accepting the praise. Let's
face it, a lovely face is one
that's cleanly shaven.
Incidentally, I assume that, if
these "girls" went to a beauty
parlor, they'd use the emer-
gency entrance.

Noble Street School students respond to news thatESE students will
be reassigned next year in Duval County public schools.

Moving students will lower self-esteem

To the editor:
Removing the ESE classrooms
in Duval county elementary
schools causes problems because
the ESE students would not be
getting the proper one on one
teaching they need. One teacher
can't give 25 children individual
attention, even with an ESE
teacher in the room. ESE stu-
dents would always worry about
being singled out, taunted and

pressured because they learn dif-
ferently than the rest of the stu-
dents. Most ESE students would-
n't discover anything that they
are good at. This would cause
them to have low self-esteem
which would lead to violent
acts. I don't think this is a good

Darius McKenzie
Atlantic Beach

Wise's decision decidedly unwise move

To the editor:
In my experience, it is unfair
for Dr. Wise to decide how ESE
kids are educated. I was in an
inclusive class in my elementary
school and it was terrible! I had
a hard time reading and kids
made fun of me. The only rea-
son I ever got picked to be on a
team in PE was because I could
kick the ball far. My friend, who
also couldn't read well, never
got picked.
I feel like I got an inferior edu-
cation in elementary school. I
only got extra reading help once
a week. I am now a sophomore

in high school and I am only
doing well because I am in a
very small class (7 kids). The
teachers at the small private
school I attend really care about
my future.
I challenge Dr. Wise to sit in a
special ed classroom for one
week to see how these kids are
treated. It is so hard to go
through middle school and by
the time kids get into high
school they would want to drop
Nikita Kravets

Children with needs overlooked in class

To the editor:
In response to the ESE student
relocation article, I have to say
that I strongly disagree with the
logic. If students with learning
impairments are put in regular
classes it will be utter chaos not
only for the kids with learning
disabilities, but it will also be a
terrible experience for the stu-
dents who are not cursed with a
learning disability as well. I
know this from experience. I
have aspergers syndrome and I
had to through constant preju-
dice from other kids when I was
mainstreamed in regular classes.
Therefore, I believe student
interaction won't be a pleasant
experience for both impaired
and non-impaired students.
Also, having a co-teacher in the
classroom won't help very much
because the co-teacher is not
going to be there to babysit the
impaired children all the time.
When I. was in sixth and sev-
enth grade attending Landmark
Middle School, I had a co-

teacher, but she was only help-
ful when she was in the class-
room. During times when the
co-teacher was not present, I
could not get much help
because the regular teacher was
too busy with other things.
Another thing that disturbed
me was that students, some that
can't even fill out a circle, would
be required to take the FCAT. If
these students can't even com-
plete regular everyday assign-
ments, then they should not be
required to take the FCAT. I
would like to request that Dr.
Wise sit in a classroom full of
learning impaired kids for at
least a week to see what these
kids have to go through. I am
currently in the 11th grade and
I attend the Noble Street School.
I am being educated extraordi-
narily well by two teachers who
really care about me and want
me to make some use out of my
Henry Steiner

Reassignment is heartbreaking plan

To the editor:
When :I, heard ab6it 't1hif
heaftbieakflfgi'gfory df the'7ESE
students having to be reassigned
to classrooms with 30 students I
felt so bad for them. When I was
in elementary school I had a dif-
ficult time reading. The teacher
did not have time to help me
because there were so many kids
in the class. Elementary school
students that are ESE shouldn't
have to attend regular classes. A
student with a learning disabili-
ties needs more one on one time
and extra help.
In ESE classes you don't have
to worry about bullies and being
picked on because of having a

learning disability. Students
wouldn't' be eftibarraskied'6 sk"
questions or trad l I tront tb~th-
ers. I don't think students with
learning disabilities should have
to suffer and be embarrassed to
learn. The Duval County school
board's new ESE class policy will
not help the ESE students. I
encourage Dr. Wise and the
school board to talk with ESE
students and parents aboutthis
change. Please rethink this plan,
is it really the best thing for
these students?

Learning disabled need support

To the editor:
In response to the school
board's ESE reassignment policy,
I think that it is just wrong. It is
definitely not fair that the learn-
ing disabled kids have to be in a
regular classroom. It will be a big
mistake if you do that. The kids
with SLD, ADD, ADHD,
Dyslexia and even kids that are
autistic need small classrooms. I
think that you need to leave the
ESE kids right where they are.
Kids with learning disabilities
need extra time learning to read,
write and deal with social situa-
tions. I think that ESE kids need
a lot of support everyday. I am
autistic and being in a small
classroom helps me to under-

stand classwork and be success-
ful. If I had to be in a regular
classroom I would feel very
apprehensive and I would not
want to participate.
Currently I am in 9th grade at
the Noble Street School. It is a
small school where I can take
my time learning and I don't
worry about being hurried all
the time.
The reassignment that the
superintendent came up with is
so stupid. I can't believe that he
is doing that. Please leave the
ESE and the disabled kids

Parents, file for McKay scholarship

To the editor:
In response to the; article
regarding ESE reassignment, I
would like to encourage all par-
ents of ESE students to file their
intent for the McKay
Scholarship. It is imperative that
you keep your options open in
light of the changes that will be
affecting your ESE student this
fall. Filing an intent by July 1
will afford you the opportunity
to "shop" private schools over
the summer. In addition it will
enable you to keep your options
open if Duval County's ESE
experiment doesn't work for
your child.
A general ed class of 30 stu-
dents isn't ideal for everyone. I
am sure that in some cases it
will be great. My fear is for those
students who find it impossible
to focus, feel too embarrassed to
ask questions and simply do not
have the social maturity to
function in a large classroom
setting. Go to floridaschool- to find out more
about your educational options

and the McKay Scholarship.
Filing an intent does not obli-
gate you to choose a private
school it just keeps all options
open for your child during the
2007-2008 school year. The
McKay Scholarship is not based
on financial need and you-can
file an intent online in less than
60 seconds!

Different needs need different classrooms

To the editor:
In your article you want dis-
abled children to work with non
disabled children in a 30 stu-
dent classroom environment
not only will it be extremely
hard for the teacher but also for
the children. There will be argu-
ments, name-calling and broken
hearts. Do you really expect a
child 5 to 11 years old to be able
to be mature enough to think
before they say or do?
Absolutely not, they are chil-
dren. They're in elementary

school to learn proper etiquette.
Also, do you expect the disabled
children to get a good education
being in a classroom with non-
disabled children? Absolutely
not, there will be distractions for
both disabled and non-disabled
children. You have disabled chil-
dren then you have non-dis-
abled children two completely
different learning states of mind
which need to be in two com-
pletely different classrooms.

Green Bean Corporation organizing solutions Searching for a

Although modern technol-

efficiency and productivity, it
often slows us down and
overwhelms us with more to
do, according to Sheila Green,
owner of Green Bean
Corporate Organizing
For the past 10 years, the
Ponte Vedra-based company
has been working with corpo-
rations nationwide to help
organize their workloads and
teach companies how to be
more efficient.
Green is the opening
keynote speaker at the 22nd
Annual Administrative

Professionals Conference and
Expo. She will speak about
"Overcoming Information
Overload" on Wedneday at
8:45 a.m. at the Prime Osborn
Convention Center, 1000
Water St. in Jacksonville.
"All these great tools that
we have that are supposed to
save us time now hold us
hostage," she said. "My job is
to make people's lives easier."
Green explained that too
much information is a prob-
lem that affects everyone.
For example, she had one
client who was receiving
nearly 200 e-mails per day.
By the time she completed
her organization, the client
was only receiving approxi-
mately 50 e-mails per day, she

According to the Wall Street
Journal, Green said, people
lose one hour per day due to
Green's job is to streamline
how people manage their
time. For a total re-organiza-
tion, it can take approximate-
ly 40 to 50 hours to complete.
She teaches corporations
how to save time by doing
smaller tasks here and there.
For example, one time-
maximizing trick is to desig-
nate the last 15 minutes of
every hour to answer e-mails
so that a client does not get
bogged down answering each
one individually.
She also suggests color-cod-
ing e-mails and turning on

alerts so that you can be noti-
fied if a high priority e-mail
comes in that you need to
answer promptly.
Green started her company
at the beginning of the
Internet era boom after notic-
ing that some of her clients
were not able to get things
done as efficiently because
they were being overloaded
with so much information.
She operates her company
on a nationwide basis and
some of her clients include
the Department of Homeland
Security, the city of Los
Angeles, the city of
Jacksonville and Smith
Barney in New York, she said.

Mayport Middle students

win awards at art exhibit

Mayport Middle School
won five juror's choice
awards at the Middle School'
Art Exhibition last week at
Mayport, a school with
one art teacher and about
700 students, tied LaVilla
School of the Arts, a Duval
County magnet school, for
most juror's choice awards.
"They did a fantastic job
and they worked very hard
to get that," said Marjorie
Morton, who has taught art
at Mayport Middle for the
past five years.
"We entered different
styles; different techniques.
My whole goal is to make
sure their dreams are real-
Morton entered 13 pieces
for the annual show, which
featured work from 19 Duval,
County middle schools.
Nine of the Mayport pieces
were selected ard five won
juror's choice awards.
Dakota Light-Smith, an
eighth-grader who plans to
attend Nease High next year,
won two juror's choice
awards for mixed media
works, "Kodoku Ni Shisu"
and "Gauguin Cow" which
are still on display at Gallery

Emma Shoots, Matt
Nicholson, Giovanni
McClain, Alex Brocknier,
Kenneth Foster and Ryan
Rosenzweig also participated
in the show, with eighth
graders- Nicholson and
Rosenzweig and sixth grader
Brocknier each winning
juror's choice awards.
Shoots was also accepted
to Douglas Anderson School
of the Arts, the.high school
magnet school for art in
Duval County.
"We had to bring a portfo-
lio and we were asked to
draw from a big still life as
part of the audition," Shoots
"There were vases, statues,
books and all kinds of things
and we all sat around it so
our drawings were all from
different angles and we
could draw whatever part of
it we wanted."
Mayport Middle's showing
at the exhibition is a bitter-
sweet ending to the school
year for Morton, who will
most likely be leaving the
school in May.

Memory lapses are

nothing to fret about

T e jury'is still out on this
one, but I know I am not
the only one having gink-
go biloba moments these days.
Some of you call them senior
moments, but sometimes, I
can't remember that. and
somehow. the word, ginkgo,
never leaves my mind.
My job these days is to con-
vince myself that I am not los-
ing my mind. I keep telling
myself that I am forgetting
things because I have filtered so
much information into my
brain that it's simply crowded
up there.
Don't you think this is a
great theory? No brain damage
or tattered edges from too
much wine or falling on my
head numerous times since the
day I was born. No hardening
of the arteries or age-related
diseases. Nothing serious like a
potential lapse into a state that
will have me smiling at the
clouds for the rest of my life.
The reason I keep forgetting
things is because I am so damn
Well, come on I have to
think like this, otherwise, I
would have to embrace the
truth, and we are not going to
go there.
This mild form of intelli-
gence began several years ago
when I started forgetting where
I parked the car, that I actually
have two children and that my
knees, back and right elbow
pretty much hurt all the time.
This, of course, was just around
my 50th birthday.
During the past three years,
there has been a succession of
fabulous mind stinkers. The
other day, for instance, I was
talking to a friend on my cell
phone at the very same -.
moment I was looking for my
cell phone.
Sometimes, I get up and walk
into another room to get some-
thing and once I get into the
room, I have no idea what I

~p"" ~P.
A t '


was about to get.
The names of people and
places seem to be disappearing
just as fast. They are in there, I
know it, and that is why so
many of us, especially me, are
walking around at inappropri-
ate moments and shouting out
things like, "Lucille Ball,"
"President Nixon," "Las Vegas"
or "Martina."
I'm really not worried about
what I cannot seem to remem-
ber. So far, what I am seeking
eventually rises up and slaps
me in the face, and I eventually
manage to find the car or
remember my last name.
Truth be told, I think I have
Suffered from this memory
lapse thing for most of my life
and have covered it up by
telling everyone that I am a
writer who just gets lost in her
own mind. That usually works
out okay, but then someone
notices I have on two different
shoes, and the game is over.
Here's what we should do
about this. Nothing. Really,
absolutely nothing because
everyone who you think does-
ri't have this same problem,
does. Think about that take
your time on this one though,
it's fuzzy, believe me, I know.
*-,: haveidecided toejust.keep
ambling through life like this,
and rest assured, if I find your
car keys, I will call you.

Jeff Mease had three goals
this year.
Saturday marked the
achievement of his third goal:
to get into the Guiness Book of
World Records.
Mease, a 34-year-old Ponte
Vedra resident, spent one hour,
43 minutes and 3 seconds bal-
ancing on an Indo board at the
Jacksonville International Boat
Show, beating the previous
world record of one hour, 30
minutes and 38 seconds for
longest duration on a balance
board. An Indo board is a con-
traption that resembles a skate-
board and is designed to
improve balance.
"This has been like a
dream of mine. Ever since I
was a kid, I've wanted to get
into the Guiness Book of
World Records," he said in a
phone interview Monday.
Mease received the .
board as a Christmas gift and
has only been using it since
December, he said. It was pri-
marily supposed to improve Jeff Mease shove
his balance for surfing, but
Mease turned it into a fun
hobby and has balanced on it for as long as
four hours in his living room, he said.
Mease has already completed his other
two goals of the year running the Gate River
Run and starting to write a book and said he

and what it does for individuals," he said. "Everyone can learn
to dance... let us show you how!"
Step by Step Dance Center's dance training system is a valu-
able system in which private classes, group classes and practice
parties are used together to make learning fun.
The first step is private instruction. "Private lessons are the
single most valuable tool of the learning process because the
lessons are strictly one on one with your teacher," Richard
said. "You receive personalized lessons, which often focus on
the "secrets" of executing steps you have learned during other
dance sessions."
The second step is group classes. "In group-classes you can
choose from a variety of classes'to enhance what you've
already learned in your private lessons, and you can take the
classes at your convenience," he said.
The third step in the Step by Step Dance Center's three-way
curriculum is practice parties. "We provide a social setting to
give our students the opportunity to practice and apply every-
thiing they've' learned in their previous dance sessions,"
iclhard said. r ; .
So what's the best way to get started? "If you're a new stu-
dent, our introductory courses are the best way for you to
learn the basic fundamentals of dance and to help you estab-
lish good habits for our more advanced foundational dance
programs," he said. "Once you complete our introductory
courses, your Step by Step instructor will place you in the
course best suited for you."
The Step by Step Introductory Course designed for the
beginning dancer includes three 30-minute private lessons,
one beginner group class and one practice party at a total cost
of $69 per person or $130 per couple.

'Another course the Step by Step Wedding Survival Course
is designed for beginners who want to shine at their wed-
ding dance. It includes five 30-minute private lessons, two
beginner group lessons and one practice party at a total cost of

Also available are extended courses for dancers who have
completed the introductory courses or whose Step by Step
instructors have recommended further study.
But Step by Step instructors provide more than top-notch
instruction in a positive environment and that's what
makes Step by Step Dance Center.different. They go one "step"
further and share new ideas about dance.
"We maintain the traditions'and style of ballroom dancing,
but we also emphasize fresh and new ways to express yourself
in new interpretations of the dance," Richard said. "With that
in mind, we've created a special place for learning that's con-
temporary as well as inviting."
The goal for Step by Step instructors is not to change the
style of ballroom dancing but to change the way you feel
about a particular dance. Take the fox trot, for example. "The
fox trot is a happy dance, so every time you do a fox trot, you
want to be fresh and be happy;" Richard said. "So the atmos-
phere you want to create for the music is not just walk, walk,
side together it's a happy movement, and that's what we're
working hard here for everybody in our studio."
Richard likes the idea of interpreting a particular dance as
opposed to concentrating on' individual steps. "Everybody is
different and everybody performs differently on the dance
floor, so there's no reason to keep everyone doing the same
thing," he said, "Yes, you follow the music and the beat, but
you have to 'live' it on your own and our instructors will help
you do that. At Step by Step it's not about dancing, it's about
having fun listening to music from different cultures, mak- friends, behaving in a respectful way with others and
being in a good place."

into the district semifinals,
ending Nease High School's

The Sharks tore through the

of two Nease errors to score

In the bottom half of the
inning, Nease head coach Lee
Geiger pulled starting pitcher
Ryan Chiodo and replaced
him with Zach Gray, who
overthrew first base on a pick-
off attempt that allowed
Roberto Bosques to score.
Gray's error was the first of
three more the Panthers
would commit in the inning,
giving up another three runs
to the Sharks.
"They jumped up 4-0 in the
first and we come back and
close it up and things are

Fletcher in district play
Fletcher High had to battle
tooth and nail to earn the No.
3 seed in this week's District 1-

6A baseball tournament at
Frank Hoye Field.
So you won't hear any com-
plaining from seven-year
Senator head coach Kevin
"Hey, we won 18 games one
year when we were in the 5A
district and we were no better
than the fifth seed," Brown
recalled Monday as Fletcher
prepared for today's do-or-die
district semifinal game with
second-seeded Sandalwood.
The host Senators (18-7)
must beat the Saints (16-9)
today to advance to Thursday
night's district title game and a
berth in the state playoffs.
Game time is 7:30 p.m.
Top-seeded Gainesville
Buchholz (17-8, 6-2 in 1-6A)
and fourth-seeded Orange Park
(17-9) square off in the other
semifinal at 4 p.m.
Fletcher carried the top seed
into last year's 1-6A tourney,
but fell to third-seeded
Buchholz in the championship
"You just have to grind for
21 outs," said Brown, who will
start sophomore Scott Sitz (5-3,
2.13 ERA) on the mound and
six seniors in the field.
"If we stay focused, I like our

laden club in 1-6A and its

"Everybody is evenly
matched. What it typically
comes down to is experience,"
24-year Buchholz skipper Bob
Smith said Monday.
"The No. 1 factor in every
game is the guy on the bump."
Fletcher will likely face
Sandalwood's No. 1 pitcher,
senior Rafe Riege (6-4, 1.44).
Orange Park will either face
Bobcat sophomore Corey
Turner (6-2) or junior Jardian
Thomas (5-3).
The Raiders edged Mandarin
2-1 in the tournament opener
on Monday, but saved ace
Chris Geiger (5-1, 1.76) for

The Beaches Lea4det/Pdinte Vedra Leader


Tebow, Stafford young guns of the SEC

W hen Florida's Gators
wrapped up their
spring fling they
knew they had a quarterback
who might reckon with the
best in this area, even as a
sophomore. Georgia's Bulldogs
finished their head-knocking a
week or so before that and the
two have plenty in common
on offense.
The' Gators' Tim Tebow is
obviously in a class by himself
for his age. And the Bulldogs
hope Matthew Stafford can be
just as good even though he
hasn't been as publicized.
There's this to compare: Both
are rookies, really, even though
each has seen varsity combat
time. Tebow was the more for-
tunate. He had Chris Leak to
break in under. He wasn't
thrown to the tough SEC lions
without mentoring.
Tebow had time to learn his
trade on the job and when the
going got rough, when the sit-
uation called for more experi-
ence, coach Orban Meyer took
the kid out and "old" Chris
Leak came to the rescue. Tebow
has been chaffing at the bit to
get going, but he realizes he
still has lots to learn.
Whatever they might say
about the Nease kid being
cocky or at least brimming
over with self-assurance,
nobody can accuse him of
being a dumb-dumb.
Stafford at Georgia didn't
have that advantage when he
broke in. There was no Chris
Leak to protect him from the
slings and arrows of both
opposition and critics. It makes
a difference.
The two phenoms have
much in common. Both will be
sophomores next fall, even if
already experienced sopho-
mores. Tebow is 6'3", 229
pounds, and Stafford is 6'3",
237 pounds only a matter of
a few pounds, at least as listed
on their respective rosters.

.. .-- .


Both showed well, as expect-
ed, in their spring outings.
Stafford threw for a pair of TDs
as did Tebow and neither
embarrassed himself. And, at
least to this point, both appear
to have more than adequate
Last week we pointed out the
big improvement of Florida's
Louis Murphy, a 6'3", 195
pound sophomore, and with
returnees Andre Caldwell and
Percy Harvin, barelyout of the
rookie class himself, both in
good shape, the passing game
of the Gators looks secure at
least for now.
The Dogs receiving corps
looks even better for Stafford to
target. They got a big boost
with the return of Sean Bailey,
who missed the entire season
last year with a knee injury.
They hope Bailey's retumrwill
do something about the
receivers' lack of scoring punch.
In 2006, the entire group
caught only 12 touchdown
passes. Bailey has seven so far
in his career. His last appear-
ance in a varsity game was the
2005 SEC title contest against
LSU. Bailey helped Georgia's
cause with two TDs and 74
yards rushing in the victory.
It doesn't hurt the Red and
Black cause to also have
Muhammed Massaqui return-
ing. He tied tight end Martrez
Milner for the team high in

receptions last season, but
Milner is gone. The two of
them registered 30 catches
each, the lowest total for a
Dawgs leader since 1990.
But another big factor seen
as helping Stafford is an
improved running game. That
starts with Kregg Lumpkin,
who is generally thought to be
on the threshold of greatness.
He appeared in all 13 games
and gained 798 yards with six
TDs last year. This came after
missing the entire 2004 season.
Lumpkin was also Georgia's
third-leading receiver with 17
catches for 116 yards, another
target for Stafford. The running
back particularly made thunder
against Auburn when he post-
ed a career-high 105 yards on
27 carries in the Dogs' 37-15
Stafford finished the season
6-2 as a starter, capped by wins
over No. 5 Auburn, No. 16
Georgia Tech and No. 14
Virginia Tech after an 18-point
deficit in the Chick-fil-A Bowl,
31-24. The quarterback was
voted MVP.
If Georgia can replace veter-
ans on the offensive line, the
team should again be a con-
tender. The Dawgs have 13 of
26 starters returning, including
ace kicker Brandon Coutu.
On the offensive front,
Georgia Tech shouldn't be
overlooked; judging from the
spring game. The Jackets' QB,
Taylor Bennett, threw five
touchdown passes and appears
to be a lot more certain in his
movements than predecessor
Reggie Ball.
Tech has 17 starters return-
ing and that should give
Bennett plenty of help in
establishing his game. Together
with a sturdy defense, the
Yellow Jackets are considered a
sure bet to contend in the,
ACC, maybe even playing for
the title.
Florida, Georgia and Tech all
look solid in the passing game.

Weather and competition heat up in April

Titans' Vince Young

should be afraid of

the Madden Curse

WA en someone speaks
of "The Curse" in
V sports, most often he
is referring to the "Curse of the
Bambino," which fell upon the
Boston Red Sox after trading
away Babe Ruth to the
Yankees. After letting The Babe
go in 1920, Boston hadn't won
a World Series since 1918.
Many thought the curse was
at play when in 1986 they
blew a World Series Game 6
lead against the Mets, when
Bill Buckner allowed a routine
ground ball to dribble between
his legs, allowing Ray Knight
to score. The
humiliated Red
Sox would lose
Game 7 and
the Series the
However, as
powerful as
"The Curse of
the Bambino"
may have been,
the Red Sox did
win the World
Series in 2004,
and thus the GRE
curse was bro- SMIT
ken. CONTI
Another curse
of sorts is the so
called Sports Illustrated cover
jinx. For years it was felt that if
an athlete or team was put on
the cover of S.I., they were
doomed to lose the following
week, and on many occasions
the jinx would come true.
Sports Illustrated, however,
circumvented the curse by
beginning to produce issues
with different cover pictures
with athletes or teams selected
based on the area the issue was
to be sold.
This brings us now to what
may be the most powerful
curse in all of sports. What
other curse has left athletes in
shambles, and ended careers? I
am referring of course to the
curse of the EA Sports Madden
NFL video game.
Before 2001, there were no
players on the box of the
game, only a picture of
Madden himself. But since
then, of the last eight box
fronts, six players have suffered
significant injury, one had a
terrible year, and one (Barry
Sanders) simply retired before
the season even started.
In the year 2000, Dante
Culpepper threw for almost
4000 yards, and had 33 touch-
downs. He seemed a good
choice for the 2001 Madden
NFL cover. He wasn't. He
missed four games with injury,
only had 14 touchdowns and
had only 1,300 yards passing.
The curse followed him into
2005 where he suffered a horri-
ble knee injury and has yet to,
regain his former level of play.


In 2003, Marshall Faulk was
Madden's photo selection. Big
mistake. Faulk had a nearly
400 fewer yards rushing than
the year before, developed
severe knee problems that
required surgery and ultimately
forced him to retire.
Michael Vick at one time
was considered to be the hot
shot future of the NFL. His
remarkable ability to pass and
scramble made him the media
sensation of the league and
thus he was chosen for the
front of Madden NFL.'04.
Soon after, Vick broke his leg
in an early season game, and
missed the
next 11 games
as the Falcons
finished 5-11.
Ravens line-
backer Ray
Lewis was cho-
Ssen for the box
of Madden
NFL '05. The
multiple time
All-Pro would
have a less
than stellar
IORY year, recording
[, M.D. only one sack,
BUTOR and no inter-
In 2005,
Donovan McNabb had a phe-
nomenal season, and led his
team to the Super Bowl here in
Jacksonville. He then was cho-
sen to appear on the box for
Madden NFL '06. McNabb
came back with a terrible year,
with his highest interception
rate of his career. In week 9 he
suffered a sports hernia and
was done for the year.
The curse continued for him
through last season when early
in the year he tore his ACL and
missed the remainder of the
In 2006, Shaun Alexander
had an NFL MVP type year,
leading the Seahawks to the
Super Bowl. He then appeared
on the Madden NFL '07 box.
In the midst of his season, he
suffered a broken foot, missed
six games, and finished the
season with 896 yards and
seven touchdowns, the lowest
since his rookie season.
This year's selection for
Madden '08 is Tennessee
Titans' Vince Young. Be afraid
Vince, very afraid. We will be
praying foryou, but beware
the curse.
