144' tall project on ICW irks AB


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Buildings nearly twice the height of
the neighboring Atlantic Boulevard
bridge got initial approval from the
county this week despite strong opposi-
tion from the Beaches.
The proposed Moody Marine project
on the Intracoastal Waterway drew crit-
icism from Beaches elected officials.
The city of Jacksonville Land Use and
Zoning Committee Tuesday voted to
recommend the project, which includes
four residential buildings that will each
be 144 feet, according to Jacksonville
City Councilor Art Graham.


Fletcher's

future is

topic of

meeting

FROM STAFF
A community meeting will
be held Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at
Fletcher High School's audito-
rium to discuss the future of
the school.
School Board representative
Nancy Broner, who is hosting
the meeting with school
administrators, said the discus-
sion will focus on the entire
62-acre campus of school
property that is the site of the
high school, middle school
and. San Pablo Elementary
School.
"We want all Beaches resi-
dents to participate," Broner
said. "This is the first in a series
and we want ideas."
School officials have said
that the aging high school will
need work and have suggested
that various options may be
considered, including building
a two-story school, creating a
K-12 facility or adding on to
the existing facility.


Developers have proposed a mixed-
use waterfront development on the
property, which is under the Atlantic
Boulevard bridge at the city of Atlantic
Beach's jurisdictional line.
"The things at Moody didn't go well
for the Beaches," said Graham, who
was the only committee member who
voted against the project.
Atlantic Beach Mayor Don Wolfson,
Atlantic Beach City Councilor Mike
Borno and Neptune Beach Vice Mayor
Harriet Pruette all spoke against the
project at the land use committee meet-
ing, Graham said.
According to City Manager Jim


Hanson, the city is concerned about the
144-foot maximum height of the four
residential buildings.
"That's almost two times as tall as the
Atlantic Boulevard bridge," he said.
According to both Hanson and
Community Development Director
Sonya Doerr, the buildings were expect-
ed to be approximately 60 feet or less in
height.
Doerr said that developers had never
committed to a specific height limit, but
that Beaches officials were under the
impression that it would be similar to
neighboring developments and a much
lower height.

TAKING THE FIELD -
The Babe Ruth regular season, which began the first weekend in March, ends May 10. After that,
playoffs begin with a two-county tournament featuring Julington Creek, Northside, Mandarin, San
Jose and Jacksonville Beach. Twenty-seven 15-and-under teenagers comprise the two
Jacksonville Beach teams, Red and Blue: "We're hoping to get more out," Jacksonville Beach
Babe Ruth president Ira Herb said Saturday. "A lot of kids get weeded'out coming to the 90-foot
bases. Hopefully next year we'll get more 13-year-olds. We're also hoping to get donations so we
can get grass for this field," which is an all-dirt infield at Seabreeze Elementary School]. A senior
Babe Ruth division, for ages 16 to 18, is also beginning. See more photos in gallery at www.beach-

Police PR part of youth fishing fun


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Youngsters 15 and under are invited
to try their luck Saturday at Huguenot
Park in the 13th annual Kids Fishing
Rodeo.
The program will be held from 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. in the lagoon behind the
Huguenot Tennis Center at 3rd Street

Jacksonville Beach.
The free event, "Get Hooked on
Fishing, Not Drugs, Kids Fishing
Rodeo," is sponsored by the
Jacksonville Beach Police Department
UBPD] in concert with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission.
"We want children to feel comfort-
able around police officers," said JBPD
Sgt. Thomas Bingham, "so they can
come to us in times of emergency. We
do things like Stranger Danger and


Get Hooked on Fishing


D.A.R.E. in the elementary schools, try-
ing to promote a good working rela-
tionship with the children. Anytime we
can go above and beyond by doing
something like the Kids Fishing Rodeo
is definitely a plus."

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The City of Jacksonville Beach is looking for
volunteers to help out at city-sponsored events,
including the Moonlight Movies film series,
Mother's Day Pops at the Beach, the Summer
Jazz Concert Series and the 4th of July celebra-
tion.
The first Moonlight Movie "Endless
Summer" begins at 9 p.m. today at the SeaWalk
Pavilion. (See story about Moonlight Movies
program on page B-1.) A volunteer recruiter
will be on site to sign up anyone interested in
helping at future movies and other events
The Mother's Day Pops at the Beach is also in
need of volunteers from 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday,


May 13 at the SeaWalk Pavilion.
Volunteer duties include distributing pro-
grams and providing other information to
those attending the events, checking VIP cre-
Sdentials, setting up and tearing down after the
event.
Participants can select the areas and the hours
in which they want to work. Volunteers will
receive a Jacksonville Beach events T-shirt and

responsibilities, shift times, volunteer guide-

Fishing poles will be provided for
youngsters who don't have their own,
and prizes will be given.
"We have gotten good community
response," said Sylvia Osewalt, past
president of the Citizens Police Alumni
Association, which helped put the
event together. She emphasized the
anti-drugs aspect of rodeo and that it
provides an opportunity for officers to
interact withchildren and show them
police are "good people."
Other activities for children include a
petting zoo and pony rides. The police
department will offer children's finger-
printing, SWAT and K-9 demonstra-
tions, and a Dunk the Cop booth.
There will be free hot dogs, hamburg-
ers and drinks for the kids, as well as
photos.

Publix hearing
is Monday
FROM STAFF
The Jacksonville Beach City
Council will conduct a public
hearing at 7 p.m. Monday at
City Hall to allow a new Publix
at Beach Boulevard and 1st
Avenue South.
The property is partially
zoned commercial and indus-
trial. It must be rezoned to
Planned Unit Development
(PUD) to accommodate the
proposed 34,000-square-foot
shopping center.


"They [developers] were talking in
generalities," said Graham in reference
to the conceptual plans.
The city of Atlantic Beach has previ-
ously expressed opposition to the proj-
ect, citing increased hurricane evacua-
tion time and height restrictions.
Developers also reduced the original
number of planned units from 756 to
590 units, according to Graham.
However, the residential buildings
will not be on the wetlands, Graham
said. Instead, there will be a conserva-
tion easement, he said. The Jacksonville
City Council will hold a final vote
Tuesday.

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Beach officials
will consider an ordinance to
convey a portion of city-owned
land for the expansion of the
American Red Cross Volunteer

Monday at City Hall.
The Lifesaving Corps plans to
add approximately 1,300 square

Church gives

valuable pix

back to donor

by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
The man who unknowingly
donated a valuable painting
to the rummage sale at St.
Paul's Catholic Church's car-
nival came forward on
Monday, said Jill Kapron,
organizer of the sale, in a tele-
phone interview.
"We felt the best thing to do
was to give it back to them,"
she said.
The painting was an origi-
nal work by Harold Newton, a
member of a group African
American painters from
Florida called the
Highwaymen.
Kapron is familiar with
Highway men paintings and
said that she knew the dona-
tion was a valuable piece of
art. She planned to sell the
painting through a sealed bid
auction at the church.
"We had no idea who
brought it in," she said.
The gentleman, who was
the only person to come for-
ward, has been a parishioner
for 40 years.
He said that he was totally
unaware of the value of the
painting. His uncle told him
that he had purchased the
painting along the side of the
road about 30 years ago, said
Kapron.
"He was as sincere as could
be..... I think we did the right
thing," said Kapron of return-
ing the painting to the man.

Tuesday is Beaches' chance


to battle for overpass

At Kernan Boulevard and Atlantic Boulevard


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A public hearing regarding a city of
Jacksonville bill that would eliminate a pro-
posed overpass at the intersection of Kernan
Boulevard and Atlantic Boulevard will be held at
a meeting Tuesday.
The overpass project was originally planned as
part of the Better Jacksonville Plan and would
allow drivers to pass over the Kernan intersec-
tion, Jacksonville City Councilor Art Graham
said previously.
According to Atlantic Beach City Manager Jim
Hanson, this project was voted as one of the
highest priorities of Beaches citizens in the
Better Jacksonville Plan.
Hanson also said that the intersection has the
most accidents. of any intersection in Duval
County, according to a report conducted in
2006.
A study conducted by the Jacksonville
Transportation Authority concluded that the
overpass was better for traffic, Hanson said.
Jacksonville City Councilor Elaine Brown,
who is part of Jacksonville's Transportation
Committee, said in a meeting Tuesday, that both
the JTA and the DOT say the overpass was the
recommended improvement for the intersec-
tion.
A bill, introduced by Jacksonville City


If we're gonna call the
troops out, they're going to

need to be there,

Jacksonville Councilman Art Graham

Councilor Lynette Self, proposes the elimina-
tion of the overpass project, which would save
the city more than $10 million, and instead
suggests a median U-turn design, dubbed the
"Michigan left" as an alternative solution.
According to Brown, the alternative U-turn
design is too complicated.
"I thought it added confusion to the intersec-
tion," she said. "This is not what the people of
Jacksonville or the Beaches voted for," she said.
Graham emphasized the importance of citi-
zens participating in the public hearing, as it is
the only opportunity the public will have the
chance to speak about the issue.
"If we're gonna call the troops out, they're
going to need to be there," he said.
He also encouraged citizens to e-mail and call
city councilors.
The final vote on the bill will be May 22.

The Players Community Senior Center will open Tuesday on Landrum Lane across from the
Winston Family YMCA.


The Players Senior Center opens


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
The Players championship
makes its May debut next week,
the same week the doors open at
the Ponte Vedra community
and senior center that bears the
golf tournament's name.
The Players Community
Senior Center, a 10,000-square-
foot, low-country style building
with an inviting wraparound
porch and club-like touches, is
scheduled to open Tuesday on
Landrum Lane across from the
Winston Family YMCA.
The opening comes about
seven years after Cathy Brown,
executive director of the St.
Johns County Council on Aging
(COA) started looking for a
place in the Ponte Vedra area to
hold programs for seniors.
"We're so excited," Brown
said Thursday. "We're down to
the last minute."
The building and its trappings
may remind visitors less of a
government structure and more
of a club.
"They got it right," Brown
said, noting the center has
details such as crown moldings,
french doors and plantation
shutters, touches meant for
"honoring" the seniors in the
community.
The center is nearly 10 times
the size of the Palm Valley
Community Center on Canal
Boulevard where senior pro-
grams began in 2003 and
bears no resemblance to the
senior center first envisioned for
the Ponte Vedra area.
Senior programs begin
That was in early 2000, when
Brown asked about using the
vacant fire house on Canal
Boulevard for senior programs.
Abandoned after a fire station
was built nearby, the old station
- which still stands behind the
Palm Valley Community Center
- had no air conditioning, no
heat and no handicap access.
At that time, COA programs
in the Ponte Vedra area were
limited to Meals on Wheels.
In July 2003, after some prod-
ding from former County
Commissioner Mary Kohnke of
Palm Valley, the County
Commission agreed agreed to
budget $30,000 for senior pro-
grams in Ponte Vedra.
Earlier, Kohnke, noting the
limitations of the fire house,
had suggested the Palm Valley


Community Center at 148
Canal Blvd. might be better suit-
ed.
That building had been trans-
ported to its site from Camp
Blanding in the late 1940s and
went' through extensive remod-
eling in 2002 for use as a tem-
porary library while the Ponte
Vedra Beach Branch Library was
being expanded .
Senior programs began there
on Nov. 18, 2003, but funding
limited hours to Tuesdays and
Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Need is questioned
The District 4 county com-
missioner at the time Bruce
Maguire at first "didn't think
people in Ponte Vedra needed a
senior center," Brown said.
"Many people are lonely and
isolated," Brown said. "It does-
n't have anything to do with
your wallet."
Maguire said Thursday he
didn't think there would be
much interest in a senior center
in Ponte Vedra.
But he promised Brown, "'The
day that you get 50 people is the
day I'll go out looking for a
building,'" Maguire related.
"The first day they opened up,
54 people showed up," Maguire
said. After that, he made the
senior center a priority, he said.
In May 2004, the County
Commission agreed to buy a
1.8-acre parcel adjacent to a
county-owned 2-acre parcel on
Landrum Lane. About the same


time, Don and LaVon Blackburn
of Ponte Vedra offered $100,000
to enhance the programs being
offered at 148 Canal, Brown
said.
Although fixing up the vacant
fire station for seniors had been
considered, Brown said, the
conclusion was that "This is
nuts this isn't going to work."
Soon the PGA Tour agreed to
make a donation, but they were
told, "If you donated more,
then we'll put your name on it,"
Maguire said, adding that for
the Tour, which concentrates
on children's programs, "This
was breaking ground."
Once the Tour agreed to give
$300,000 over 10 years for pro-
gramming, Maguire was able to
convince the County
Commission that the senior
center "was a perfect public-
private partnership."


Lifeguards
Cont. from A-1
obtaining the required permits
from the Department of
Environmental Protection and
the Bureau of Historical
Preservation.
An original application sub-
mitted two years ago was lack-
ing a detailed site plan showing
the location of the proposed
structure.
Application requirements
also included information
about exterior lighting, lines of
existing vegetation, location
and volume of any proposed
excavation or fill and a cross
section view of' the support
structure beneath the building.
The plans call for an added
storage facility up to 18 feet
wide on a northern portion of
property to house equipment
presently stored outside.
An existing training room at
the rear of the garage will be
relocated to the expanded
space and a wall separating the
garage from the training room
will be removed to increase the
storage space.
Seeking the city's okay for
the project is a required step
since the proposed site is locat-
ed seaward of the Coastal
Construction Line, officials
said.
The property was conveyed
in 1946 from the city to con-
struct the present lifeguard sta-
tion at the foot of Beach
Boulevard.
According to the original
ordinance, the original 85 x 65
parcel of land must be used as a
lifesaving facility or the proper-
ty reverts back to the city.

COULD YOUR CHILD BE AT RISK?
Your child may have 20120 eyesight
but OiO vision. The difference is critical.
Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see.
Vision is the ability to identify, interpret,
comprehend, and act on what is seen.
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most eye care professionals
measure eyesight. They do not include
the kinds of testing that can find visually
W related learning problems.
Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat
vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
Unable to sit still: cannot stAy on task for any
length of time.
Very clumsy; poor eye-hand c lrdination,
Does written work very slowly: often fails to
complete a task.
Has difficulty copying visual material;
constantly looks up and down.
Moves entire head instead of eyes when
reading.
SReversals-for example confusing the words
"was and saw" or letters "b and d".
Is disorganized and frustrated when studying
visual information. .
Makes frequent. "careless" errors.
If your son or daughter. age 7-18, has one or more of these behaviors, call
246-1952 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems.
It could be the most important phone call you will make during his/her school years.

The Leader's Opinion

County jail must serve all 50 A F -.
30% rN'T AU..

A lack of jail space is a large part of the reason that 'IT MiH. K"
many criminals who should be incarcerated are quickly AN ARM AND A
released, according to news reports last week. At the W T 1
same time the state attorney must deal with a mountain
of cases.
The result is that Jacksonville Beach police, and other "
law enforcement officers, too often find themselves
repeatedly arresting the same individuals.
For the most part, the Beaches police do a good job of
containing the criminals here. Crowding in the county -
jails means book and release practices are all too stan-
dard, and that means problems here. '
The Beaches have a large stake the security of our
neighborhoods in making sure the county jails,
judges and prosecutors help solve the problem of vio- FLOR1 I
lent offenders being quickly released, as detailed by the L E
Jacksonville Beach police chief last week. L -
A slap on the wrist or a reduced charge may expedite
the legal process, but it hardly provides justice for all in
the long term.
Misdemeanor violators should fear the consequences
of breaking the law and that helps deter petty viola-
tors from becoming felons.
We all have a stake in seeing that justice is done.


Letters to the editor: e ......... -.. Clear

To the editor:

Citizens must assume the

Why do people watch
birds? I think it's
possibly because
those folks are enthralled
with flight. They admire the
way their fine feathered fly-
ing friends can float through
the air with the greatest of
ease. The birdwatcher, how-
ever, probably feels superior
to birds in other respects.
Consider the guy who's in a
pet shop and sees a parrot on
a perch. He condescendingly
says, "Hi, birdie, can you
talk?" The parrot replies,
"Yeah, I can talk. Can you
fly?"


From what I've read,

Sfeeder created by a friend of
mine, Rick Fromhart, a near-
by Jax resident and supplier
of suchlike, he said, through
a Beaches sports shop. He
made it with decals on it that
tout the University of Florida
Gators and told me that he
can get decals for other uni-
versities as well as the
SJaguars. For the sports filbert
who has.everything, it could,
be ani interesting coinversa-
tion piece.
Although I'm not an
expert on nourishing birds,
especially vultures, I've.
noticed, that most dispensers


of bird cuisine place their
feeders on something lofty,
like a long pole, no doubt to
discourage raids by four-
footed creatures seeking free
eats. Sometimes their best
efforts fail. My sister-in-law,
Frannie, lives in the wildlife-
populous New Jersey moun-
tains. She sent me pictures of
a neighbor's bird feeder
hung high on a barely bear-
able line between two trees.
Believe it or not, a big black
bear was going hand-over-
hand (or paw-over-paw)
across the line, ending up at
the bird buffet.
Speaking of mountains,
the most impressive chirper
chef I've ever met lived near
a tropical summit in
Jamaica. She would spread
bird seed on her patio, and
all kinds of winged diners
would .swoop in for lunch.
More fascinatingly, if you
held up a small bottle filled
with sugar water, a tiny
hummingbird would ar-rive ...
andp;hovering. sluixp the'lnec-
tar.'That sight eiplaine'd to'

be calmed and intrigued by
canaries even while in a cage

teenybopper, but I am


It is on rare occasion that I
intentionally expose my
inner geek for public scruti-
ny.
But anyone attending former
American Idol contestant Chris
Daughtry's sold out show
Saturday at Freebird Live will be
treated to a spectacle not unlike
the frenzy that followed The
Beatles.
Not that I consider Daughtry
even remotely in the same
league as the Fab Four. It's not
even his affiliation with "that
show" which I have watched
religiously since its inception
five years ago that draws me
in.
Rather it's his ability to seam-
lessly break formation and pull
away from the Idol grip while
still maintaining his hold on a
captive and appreciative audi-
ence.
And he rocks.
Daughtry, long predicted to
be the winner of the 2006 Idol
season before being unceremo-
niously voted off, showed his
chops on the hard hitting Fuel
song "Aneurysm," going so far
as to receive an offer to front
the band.
He' displayed his softer side
with a rendition of Bryan
Adams "Have You Ever Really
Loved a Woman" and his versa-
tility on Johnny Cash's "Walk
the Line" (though he was later
accused of ripping off the ver-
sion by fellow chrome dome Ed


I- .


LIZA V. MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER

Kowalczyk of Live).
As much as it pains me to
admit, I have all of those songs
on my IPod. I don't know what
is more embarrassing having
an ex-Idol in your ear or
acknowledging that I actually
like a Bryan Adam's song.
Daughtry's growing fan base
was evident when tickets to his
much awaited Freebird show
went on sale. Club owner Judy
Jenness said 300 .tickets were
sold out at TicketMaster in just
two hours.
The rest of the tickets were
gone in less than three days.
Jenness said six tickets are avail-
able for $100 each at www.free-
birdlive.com with a portion of
the proceeds to benefit the
Beaches Emergency Assistance
Ministry.
Jenness calls the public's fas-


cination with Daughtry "the
strangest thing" because it's the
bubble gum tween crowd that
is embracing a guy more rock
star than pop tart.
Regardless of his start,
Daughtry is more than posi-
tioned for a stellar recording
career which is more than can
be said for other past con-
tenders.
How many Idol castoffs
would reject the chance to
front an established rock band?
Let's be realistic. Most will be
lucky to cut a ribbon at the
grand opening of Piggly
Wiggly.
Constantine Maroulis having
wrapped his Broadway run as
the smarmy friend in "The
Wedding Singer" just joined
the cast of Bold & the Beautiful
where his bedroom eyes can
realize their full potential for
wooing bored housewives.
Then there are the Jessica
Sierras and Sanjayas who must
rely on current mug shots and
ponyhawks to remain news-
worthy.
When the Idol reunion tour
rolls into town July 8, all of you
Philnatics, Blaker Girls and sad,
silly little Fanjayas can keep
your tickets. I'm cashing in all
.my chips for Daughtry at the
Freebird and I'm okay with that
- even if I am one of the only
ones old enough to drive
myself to the show.

Walking

the beach

proves to be

interesting

n most days after
work, all I want to
do like many peo-
ple is go home, eat dinner
and unwind.
However, some new moti-
vation (don't ask where it
comes from because I'm not
really sure) has provoked a
co-worker and myself to
begin walking on the beach
after work to de-stress.
We've become so proud of
ourselves and our commit-
ment, that our whole office
has pretty much had to
endure 'the endless praises
we have given ourselves for
our beach excursions -
which we've been doing for
a whole week and a half.
It started as a simple walk
on the beach and has now
blossomed into some sort of
exercise regimen where our
ultimate goal is four miles -
which makes us even more
proud.
The first time, we started
at the Casa Marina in
Jacksonville Beach and
walked to the Sea Turtle Inn
in Atlantic Beach and then
back.
S-Later, my .co-worker
cocked3 it ,and; -we:.were.:,
stunned to learn that- we
had walked four miles,
without passing out in the
sand.
It then became our new
goal. We would always walk
to the Sea Turtle and then
we could pat ourselves on
the back for completing
some from of exercise.
But the truth is, it's stress-
relieving and relaxing to
walk by the ocean and talk
with a friend at the same
time.
We don't push ourselves
too hard after all, it's a
walk on the beach but, we
motivate each other.
There are days when we
try to cut corners and short-
en the walk, but one of us
always manages to motivate
the other even if it's done
grudgingly, while complain-
ing and vowing to never do
this again. (The worst is the
walk back, when we're
walking against the wind).
Apart from the exercise,
we've also discovered all
kinds of interesting beach
things.
For example, we recently
saw the new wheelchair
ramp under construction in
Neptune Beach and we
watched a guy on a mini-
surfboard get reeled in by a
string connected to a
motorized machine in order
to glide across shallow
water.
We've also pondered the
mass of dead jellyfish that
have littered the beach and
theorized on all possible
reasons for this strange
occurrence in nature an
excellent conversation
starter, I might add.
I've learned that the
beach holds all kinds of
interest you just have to be
motivated enough to get
out and enjoy it.

FROM STAFF
Ellen Koski, 75, a longtime
resident of the Beaches com-
munity, died May 2, 2007 in
Lake City.
Koski owned and operated
Ellen's Kitchen in Silver's Drug
Store inNeptune, Beach for 27
years.'.She.opened the ,restau-
rant, predecessor of the Ellen's
Kitchen in Jacksonville Beach,
with her first husband,
Clifford Westcott. Pictures of
Koski can be found in the cur-
rent restaurant, which was
moved to Jacksonville Beach
after she sold it.
Koski also was married to
Douglas "Skebo" Williams,
who worked for the city of
Jacksonville Beach for 35
years. She had been in Lake
City for 15 years.
She was born in Carbon,
Ind. and moved to Florida and
the Beaches when she was 19.
Koski is survived by two sis-
ters, Brilla Cunningham and
Rosemary Dill, and one broth-
er, Allen McCloud, all of Lake
City; one son, Michael
Westcott; two granddaugh-
ters, Heather (Shane) Blair and
Jennifer Westcott of
Jacksonville; and one great-
granddaughter, Hailey
Westcott. She was preceded in
death by a young son, Herbie
Williams, who died at 6 of
leukemia.
Described by her family as a
kind and caring woman, Koski
often fed those who couldn't
pay in exchange for conversa-
tion. Her motto in life, the
family said, was "Love at first
bite."
Patrons used to line up out-
side the restaurant to get in to
eat, said the family. Omelets
were her specialty. The
Greater Jacksonville Open,
precursor to The Players
Championship, started in
1965, and tournament litera-
ture said the three places to
eat at the Beach were Ellen's
Kitchen for breakfast, Nick's
Pizza for lunch and The
Homestead for dinner.
Koski was well-known and
loved by all who knew her,
said the family. She never
turned anyone away and
would give sandwiches to
those in need. She was friends
with and respected by mayors
and bankers, the family said.
She will be missed by friends
and family alike.
A graveside service will be
held at 11 a.m. Saturday at H.
Warren Smith Cemetery,
Jacksonville Beach.

First Water Star home


certified in Jax Beach


FROM STAFF
The St. Johns River Water
Management District on April
20 certified the first Florida
Water StarSM home at the
Jacksonville Beaches.
Florida Water StarSM is a
point-based new-home certifica-
tion program, similar to the fed-
eral Energy Star program, but
with a water conservation focus.
The program promotes the eco-
nomic and environmental ben-
efits of water efficiency in new
home construction to builders
and home buyers.
Paradise Key is currently
under construction in
Jacksonville Beach by BESTCON
Homes, which became the first
Beaches builder to receive
Florida Water StarSM certifica-
tion. Its 4,200-square-foot
model home received the desig-
nation after inspectors complet-
ed a detailed assessment of the
homes water efficiency in its
landscape materials, irrigation
system, plumbing fixtures and
household appliances.
"We've seen how Florida
Water StarSM can be successful-
ly applied in conventional
homes and provide value for
both the builder and the home


buyer," says Linda Burnette,
director of the District,s Office
of Communications and
Governmental Affairs. "Paradise
Key is forging new territory as it
demonstrates that water-con-
serving landscapes and efficient
appliances also can be very
beautiful and appeal to a high-
end buyer. Florida Water StarSM
helps give home buyers peace of
mind that quality is built in to
their new homes."
Paradise Key- has 62 single-
family home sites at
Jacksonville Drive and South
Beach Parkway. The model
home is featured in the 2007
Parade of Homes, sponsored by
the Northeast Florida Builders
Association.
"Florida Water StarSM makes
sense to me. BESTCON recog-
nizes that our buyers are con-
cerned about their environment
and that these buyers want to be
able to help conserve our limit-
ed natural resources," says BEST-
CON President Paul W. Nichols.
In a Florida Water StarSM home,
efficient irrigation systems and
waterwise landscaping outdoors
can cut irrigation use in half,
according to the water manage-
ment district.

Property talks continue to expand Pablo Hamlet


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Plan to increase the amount
of affordable housing for
Beaches seniors are "going
slowly," according to housing
officials.
Melissa Gilreath, executive
director of the Elderly Housing
Coalition, Tuesday said the
nonprofit organization is look-
ing at ways to acquire addi-
tional acreage to support an
expansion of Pablo.Hamlet, an
apartment complex at 1600


Shetter Ave. in Jacksonville
Beach.
"We have had talks with a
couple of people about some
property but nothing con-
crete," she said Tuesday. "We
are still looking at options. We
hope to have something in the
next month or two."
Pablo Hamlet, formerly
Cooper Holt Manor, is com-
prised of 104 units for low
income seniors and has operat-
ed for the last five years at the
western end of Shetter Avenue.


The. complex is located on
.77 acres which would allow 11
new apartments based on the
existing density that permits
20 units per acre.
Gilreath said the group is
working to secure two addi-
tional acres for the construc-
tion of another 50 units.
She declined to identify the
location of the proposed prop-
erty but said the organization
is communicating "with sever-
al property owners in that
vicinity to see if anything is


available."
"The ideal situation would
be to add on at Pablo Hamlet.
To do that we need more
acreage that is. contiguous to
that property," she said. "We
are keeping our fingers crossed
that we are going to be able. to
move forward."
Pablo Hamlet was purchased
by the Beaches Christian
Service Corporation, which
also owns Pablo Towers at 115
3rd St. S. in Jacksonville Beach.

Ponte Vedra designs make it 'big'

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Designs from the Ponte Vedra branch of Gold & Associates
will be displayed in a book that features work from the best
design firms around the world: The Big Book of Letterheads.
The book, which will be released early this month, is a com-
position of letterheads, business cards and other designs that
are chosen for their "creativity" and "visual communication,"
according to a press release.
The company specializes in marketing and communications
as well as company branding.
"Our work is really unique to the individual customer," said
president Keith Gold, explaining that their designs are part of
the "overall company brand image." T h e
company has composed designs for several major companies,
but their designs for the Ponte Vedra Chamber's WineFest, the
Citrus County Visitor's & Convention Bureau, Reznicsek &
Fraser, P.A and Beaches Women's Partnership have been select-
ed for the book.
But Gold said his company does not have a particular style.
"The only consistency is that they're [the designs] unique to
those companies," he said. "Our style is our client's style."
Gold explained that part of their branding and marketing
strategy is not to simply establish a logo for a company, which
he said is a common misconception among people when they
think of a "brand," but to conjure an image that resonates the
company's product or service.
For example, he said when people hear "Napa Valley" an
image instantly comes to mind even though there it has no
logo.
Gold said that they did not sulPn]it any designs for the book,
but that they were selected on their own merit.
Thf"'com'pahy has won several awards -inclidiii an Emmy
award and a Clio award, as well as many others, according to
Gold.

Palms Presbyterian Chuch celebrates 50th Anniversary


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
A conversation a little over
50 years ago between a little
girl and a. man from
Washington, D.C. was instru-
mental in the founding of
Palms Presbyterian Church,
which celebrated its golden
anniversary on April 27-29.
Lydia Patten, who is a char-
ter member of Palms, wrote
about that 1955 day in a
church historypublished in


2000.
"My husband Oliver Patten,
owned and operated a plumb-
ing and heating business at
11th Avenue South and 3rd
Street in Jacksonville Beach,
where our family also lived.
One day a gentleman came to
see Oliver around noon. He
saw our five-year-old daughter
riding her tricycle and asked if
her dad was at home. She
replied that he would be home
soon for lunch. The gentleman
looked at his watch and decid-


ed to wait.
This gentleman was John
"Jack" Hess, a retired AAA
employee and former elder in
the National Presbyterian
Church in Washington, D.C
"Mr. Hess began a conversa-
tion with our daughter Sylvia
Jean, now known as Jeannie
Fisher. I could see them from
my window and decided to let
them falk.He asked her if she
went to Sunday School. As a
child will do, she explained
that there was no church near

our house. She told him that
her mother and father were
married at St. Johns
Presbyterian Church in
Jacksonville, which was too far
away to go to church.
"She also told him that we
were goling to the Methodist
Church in Jacksonville Beach
and that she was going to
Vacation Bible School at the
Baptist Church. Mr. Hess
replied that he would have to
see about getting a Presbyterian
Church at the south end of
Jacksonville Beach where the
family could worship closer to
home."
Patten described Jacksonville
Beach as a little town with a
small population back then.
The only way to cross over the
river was on the train that
came over the railroad bridge,
she recalled.
Hess, the Pattens, and other
members of the community
undertook the effort to estab-
lish a new Presbyterian church
at the beach.
The first services were held in
1956 in the former Women's
Club at 2nd Avenue and Fifth
Street, according to the history
of the church.
The new church was char-
tered in 1957 and named The
Atlantic Shores Presbyterian
Church.
In 1958, the name was
changed .to The United
Presbyterian Church of
Jacksonville Beach.
By 1960, the church still did
not have a permanent home.

Pastor Rev. Carol D


Its name was changed for the
final time to Palms
Presbyterian Church.
Patten's husband offered
the use of his land on 11th
Avenue South for a building.
He also donated the building
materials and asked for volun-
teers to help with the construc-
tion, she said.
The completed building was
known as the Patten Building.
It is still standing and now
houses a restaurant, said Palms
Senior Associate Pastor Rev.
Carol DiGusto.
Services were held there
until a permanent structure
was finished in 1961 on the
church's property at 34th
Street and Third Street South.
Lydia Patten, now 90 years
old, continues to attend servic-
es and be active at Palms. She
volunteers there every Friday
assembling the bulletins dis-
tributed at Sunday services.
"It isn't a job. It's more like a
social thing," she said.
She lives at Avante and a
member of Palms is her room-
mate there.
Patten said her daughter
Jeannie Fisher died last year


and that her faith and trust in
God has comforted her.
The next generation of the
Patten family, granddaughters
Dina Benson and Maria
Benson-Scull attended some of
the anniversary weekend
events with their grandmother.
Palms has been "part of my
life," said Patten.
"I love this church. I saw it
grow."

The Jacksonville Beach Church of Christ recently completed construction on its 1,400-
square-foot addition designed by Wakefield Beasley & Associates Architects, Inc. John
Pauli, AIA, Senior Project Manager, said the design of the $500,000 addition unified the
exterior of the 50-year-old building at 5th Avenue North and 5th Street, which has undergone
several additions over the years, and consolidated the building's footprint. The addition con-
nects the fellowship hall, classrooms, and auditorium, enlarges the sanctuary, and adds
classroom space and offices. The renovation of the front facade of the building also made
the building more welcoming. "The church needed a clear and identifiable front door and
drop-off area," said Pauli. "The existing facility did not have either, and it was unclear for visi-
tors how to enter the building."
Wakefield Beasley & Associates was responsible for all phases of architectural work from
conceptual design through construction drawings.

from the


headlines

o now we know why the
Yankees are off to a horri-
ble start it's the trainer's
fault. The Pinstripers fired first-
year strength and conditioning
coach Marty Miller on
Wednesday after a rash of
hamstring injuries, most
notably to three starting pitch-
ers. Reports indicate Miller's
spring training regimen includ-
ed a de-emphasis on running
as a means of building leg
strength.

Meanwhile, Barry Bonds
continues to torture us with
his inexorable assault on
Hank Aaron's record. Bonds
clubbed number 743
Wednesday night, leaving
him a dozen shy of tying the
all-time home run record.
Once the surly slugger ties
and passes Aaron, how are
we supposed to teach a gen-
eration of youngsters that
cheaters never prosper?

Spring is in the air and
pigskins are flying at Fletcher
and Nease high schools.
Football practices began May 1
and teams are set to don pads
for the first time today. ..,'

Boxing sorely needs a boost
and many are banking on
Saturday night's Oscar De La
Hoya-Floyd Mayweather Jr.
bout as just what the doctor
ordered. They'll fight for
Oscar's WBC 154-pound title,
though it's a bout that proba-
bly should have happened
years ago. Mayweather is 37-
0 with 24 KOs, while De La
Hoya brings his 38-4, 30 KOs
record into the ring. Both
will receive eight-figure pay-
checks.

It's not hard to figure out
why interest in boxing has
waned. There was a time when
the top bouts could be seen
free over network TV. Then,
pay channels like HBO and
Showtime got into the game .
and outbid the networks for
rights. Now, only the most
rabid fans are willing to plunk
down $54.95 for the pay-per-
view broadcasts.

Yeah, yeah, the Kentucky
Derby is steeped in tradition,
and a "run for the roses" and
the first leg of racing's Triple
Crown and all that. But face
it, mint juleps taste like
cough syrup.

Tony Stewart has compared
NASCAR to pro wrestling. Says
races are "fixed." Instead of
lauding him for honestly stat-
ing his opinion, NASCAR has
put Stewart on probation for
the rest of the season; Uh, was-
n't stock car racing started by
moonshiners, outlaws, rebels
and others of questionable
character trying to outrun the
police? Ah, but now it's
become "corporate" and can't
risk drivers offending sponsors
and money men.

Call it a sign of the times,
but this year's Kentucky
Derby entrants will be tested
for THG, the designer steroid
produced by BALCO that led
to scandals in baseball, track
and field and pro football.
Steroids have been a part of
racing for years mainly
used to help horses recover
after strenuous workouts -
but there have been recent
attempts to clean up the
sport. Still, giving horses
steroids is legal in most of
North America.

Best bet for the weekend:
The WaveMasters surf contest
just south of the Jacksonville
Beach Pier. Preliminaries on
Saturday with finals in most
categories on Sunday.


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR

With a fastball topping out
at 94 mph and a curveball
dropping at the batter's knees
like a slider, senior right-hander
Michael Main doesn't require a
lot of run support.
Tuesday at DeLand's Conrad
Park, Main got all the help he
needed in just one inning in
DeLand High's 5-0 victory over
visiting Fletcher (19-9) in
round one of the Class 6A
state playoffs.
Main (10-1, 1.11 ERA) struck
out a season-high 17 batters
and walked two in a four-hit,
complete-game shutout.
The unranked Bulldogs (23-
6) broke open a scoreless game
with four runs in the bottom
of the fourth inning off two
hits and a costly Fletcher error.
"You cannot have a bad
inning at this level," Fletcher
skipper Kevin Brown said out-
side the losing dugout.
"You can't do that with
Main. After he got the 4-0
lead, he was just bringing it."
Added DeLand head coach
Ric Sperling: "Sometimes we
get a little spoiled because one
thing Mike will always have is
control. He doesn't walk many
guys.
"When the kid made the
error and we were on first and
third with one out, we had to
get something out of that.. And
fortunately we did."
DeLand batted around in
the home fourth, loading the
bases twice on Fletcher starter
Scott Sitz (6-4, 2.09 ERA).
After DeLand third baseman
Andrew Thompson reached on
a fielding error by Fletcher's
Sam Perry, Sitz plunked right
fielder Josh Covington to load
the bases with one out.
Sitz walked catcher Nick
Main to give DeLand its first
run and second baseman Matt
Collins singled up the middle
to drive in two more.
Michael Main, who hit .467
with 18 RBI in the regular sea-
sonr had al.RBI single thrOtgh
the hole tor the Bulldogs'
fourth run.
Brown replaced Sitz with
Perry to start the fifth inning
and the University of North
Florida signee retired the side
in order before giving up a
pinch-hit, infield single in the
sixth, which DeLand plated for
its final run on a passed ball.

Fletcher High's Kevin Lehane follows through on a base hit against Gainesville Buchholz in last week's district championship game.
Lehane had two hits in the Senators' opening-round 5-0 playoff loss to DeLand Tuesday night.


Main fanned every Senator
batter except seniors Kevin
Lehane (2 for 3) and Tyler
Bounds (1 for 3). Lehane
pulled two singles to left in
the fourth and fifth innings
and Bounds hit a first-pitch
fastball to lead off the second
inning with a single.
Fletcher had runners on first
,iand second in the second and
First and third in the sixth, but
couldn't bring them home.
"That was our opportunity
to score runs," said Brown,
who led Fletcher to back-to-
back playoff berths for the first
time since 1996.
"We couldn't get the bunts
down. Main is a good pitcher.
He changes velocity real well. I


thought some of our guys were,
on him."
Fletcher senior Patrick
Braswell tagged a foul ball that
cleared the stadium's left side
and landed over some build-
ings in the parking lot. With
junior Trevor Adeeb (1 for 2)
on first in the fifth, Sitz
smacked a potential run-scor-
,ing hit down the right-firld
line, but the ball as \ ich-
es foul.
Lehane, whose batting aver-
age (.451) is just shy of his
grade-point average (4.69),
waited for only good pitches
to hit from Main, who is
expected to be taken high in
upcoming major league ama-
teur draft.


"We tell our guys that Mike
will keep us in the game, so
don't blow it," said Sperling,.
who led DeLand to the 6A
final four last season.
"We had every break you
can get last year, starting when
we played Fletcher [and won
1-0] and had two hits in that
game. You need so many
breaks because there are. so
many good teams up and
down the state."
"If it wasn't Main, it would
have been somebody else,"
said Brown about the caliber of
pitching at the state's highest
classification.
"Perry and Sitz would have
held a 4-0 lead, too. Our guys
went back to back. They won


the conference and they
played in championship games
all season.
"Some of them are going on
to play at the next level. They
have nothing to be ashamed
of. They've accomplished a
lot."
Notes: Pitcher Brett Caudill,
who was inducted into the
National Honor Society at
Fletcher this past January,
brings to six the number of
NHS members on the baseball
team. The others are Lehane,
Perry, Sam Darr, Alex Tiemeier
and BJ. Chandler. Junior
catcher Cory Franklin threw
out 26 runners this season, fin-
ishing with a 23.5 steal ratio.
His 29 RBI also led the team.

FROM STAFF

F letcher High began spring
football practices Tuesday
afternoon. The first few
sessions are about fundamen-
tals and conditioning as
coaches assess what type of
talent they'll have when pre-
season rolls around in August.
Players were scheduled to
don pads today for the first
time and begin contact drills.
Under Florida High School


Athletic Association guide-
lines, players.and coaches get
about 18 days to prepare for
the annual spring jamborees.
On Wednesday, former
Senators and current Florida
Gators starting free safety Kyle
Jackson was on hand to
observe his old team practice
and lend a hand with drills for
defensive backs.
Last year Fletcher finished a
disappointing 3-7 but won
two of its last three games
after getting off to a 1-6 start.

Baseball Award
The Jacksonville Suns have
announced the creation of an
award for the best high school
baseball player in the
Jacksonville area. It's called the
Bragan Award, in honor of
Suns owner Peter Bragan, Sr.,
and will be given to a deserv-
ing young athlete beginning
this spring.
Players in Duval, St. Johns,
Clay, Nassau and Baker coun- -
ties are eligible. Coaches from
throughout the area can nomi-
nate players they feel have
made the most valuable contri-
butions to help win ballgames.
Bragan will lead a committee
of school administrators,
coaches and community lead-
ers in selecting the award win-
ner.
For more information con-
tact Jacksonville Suns general
manager Kirk Goodman at
kirkg@jaxsuns.com or visit the
team's Web site: jaxsuns.com.

Baseball School
Sunshine Baseball School
offers six different sessions at
Wingate Park in Jacksonville
Beach. The dates of the ses-
sions, which run from 8:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday
through Thursday, are June 4-
7, June 11-14, June 18-21, July
9-12, July 16-19 and July 30-
Aug. 2. The cost of each ses-
sion is $125, which includes
lunch, drinks and a T-shirt.

My office manager Leslie
loves professional box-
ing and therefore I am
kept aware of the fights. This
weekend a major title bout
takes place between Oscarde
la Hoya and Floyd .
Mayweather.
Now for those who don't
follow boxing, this fight has
even garnered a Sports
Illustrated cover and the story
notes that this may be the
fight to save boxing. It is well
kiown that the popularity of
boxing has declined over the
years. The sport lacks the
major stars of the past like All,
Frazier, and
Tyson.
The number .
of amateurs
going into box-
ing is also on
the decline. "
Perhaps kids
are choosing
more popular
sports like bas- k
ketball and
football, or
maybe they
just don't want GREC
to get hit in the SMITH
head. I CONTRI
ResearchNTR
shows that this
may not be
such as bad thing, for even rel-
atively minor blows to the
head appear to cause brain
damage.
When a punch lands to the
head, it can cause brain cells to
die, which then rupture and
leak proteins into the spinal
fluid around the brain.
This is the fluid that is ana-
lyzed in a "spinal tap."
Led by Dr. Max Hietala of
Sahlgrenska University
Hospital in Goteborg, Sweden,
researchers analyzed the cere-
brospinal fluid of 14 amateur
boxers for protein markers of
brain injury. Levels were found
to be four times higher in box-
ers within 10 days of the fight
than in healthy nonboxers.
Of major concern is that
when fighters were tested
again three months later, the
levels were still elevated above
normal.
. Finally, what is most fright-
ening is that this brain injury
occurs despite the fact that the
boxers were wearing head gear.
After analyzing his data, Dr.
Hietala commented that
"Despite the head gear, if they
got hit more than 15 times, it
was like having a mini-stroke."

Coffee before exercise?

I like a cup of coffee as soon
as I get up in the morning.
This includes mornings when I
go to the gym.
I will pour my coffee in a
travel mug, and drink it on the


the varsity baseball team.
Sunshine Baseball School is
open to youngsters aged 6-12.
Lunch and trivia are on each
day's agenda from 11:30 a.m.
to 12:30 p.m. Players end the
day swimming at the Fletcher
pool. Baseball equipment,
swimsuits and towels should
be brought daily. Shorts may
be worn instead of baseball
pants. For information, call

always found that it jump
starts my routines.
What I had found through
experience has also been
shown through research.
R esear hers from tb., a
AiiAusralnai thi'te'odf OR
compared cyclists who drank
water to those that drank cof-
fee, and found an increase in
"exercise stamina," allowing
an athlete to exercise almost a
third longer.
This effect is felt to be due to
the fact caffeine triggers the
muscles to start using fat as an
energy source rather than car-
bohydrate sugars.

Other studies
also suggest the
beneficial effects
of caffeine dur-
ing exercise,
delaying the
onset of fatigue
by up to 60 per-
cent, as well as
reducing post-
exercise muscle
soreness.
SNow drinking
coffee before a
workout is not
without some
level of concern.
Swiss researchers


found that the
equivalent of two
cups of coffee in healthy par-
ticipants lead to a small reduc-
tion in blood flow to the heart.
after exercise.
The results were published
in the Journal of the American
College of Cardiology. The
study showed a small decrease
in blood flow in participants,
but not enough of a change to
recommend that healthy exer-
cisers stop drinking coffee
before a workout.
However, if you have known
heart disease, coffee drinking
before exercise may not be
right for you.
Blood flow normally increas-
es in response to exercise, and
research has shown that caf-
feine reduces the body's ability
to boost blood flow to the
muscle of the heart on
demand. If your heart is
already running on a limited
supply due to narrowing of
heart vessels, this may put you
at risk.

WaveMasters set for



weekend competition


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
The 24th annual Wave-
Masters surf contest, Florida's
largest open amateur surfing
contest, is Saturday and Sunday
on the south side of the
Jacksonville Beach Pier. About
200 competitors, including top
surfers in the area, are gearing
up for the event which also
raises money for local charities.
"It's the biggest and most
prestigious surf event in North
Florida," said WaveMasters
president Mitch Kaufmann,
who is also the director of the
North Florida district for the
Eastern Surfing Association.; -
"It's not associated with a
point system so it brings every-
body out of the woodwork;
even the guys who don't com-
pete. It's a virtual who's who of
local surfers."
Several local surfers who are
competing in the World
Qualifying Series in hopes of
making it onto the pro surf
tour will be surfing Wave-
Masters including defending
WaveMasters champion Ryan
Briggs of Ponte Vedra and Eric
Rheaume of Jacksonville Beach.
Divisions from the youngest
competitors at "menehune" all
the way up to the grandmaster
division will be competing. The
winner of the open division,
open to top surfers of all ages,
receives a trip to Costa Rica.
Kaufmann said top con-
tenders in each division are:
Tristan Thompson, two-time
defending champion of the
menehune division, and Brent
Lamprecht and Josh Motes in
the boys division.
"In juniors, Justin Quintal is
on an absolute rampage and
winning everything,"
Kaufmann said.
Other top surfers include
Wayne Satterwhite, Jr. in the
men's division, Jason Motes in
masters, and in grandmasters,
Ron Sapp, who won regional
grandmaster division last week-
end in New Smyrna Beach.
Kayla Durden, 14, is back
defend her title in the girls
division. And in the women's
division, Tiffany Layton, the
ESA East Coast Champion, and
Jessy Cames, who just won

regionals, are expected to lead
the pack.
Kaufmann expects to raise a
few thousand dollars for local
charities such as BEAM, the
Carver Center, Surfrider
Foundation and surfer Melissa
Humber who was paralyzed in
a motorcycle accident last May.
History of WaveMasters:
In 1982, a group of dedicat-
ed, mature surfers decided to
get together and do what .
surfers do best when they're
not in the water talk about
waves and surf trips. Thus the
Wave Masters Sddety's if clib
was formed a not-for-profit
organization of male and
female surfers ages 25 and up.
In 1983 the club hosted a surf
contest at Jacksonville Beach
and a tradition was begun that
has endured to the present.
After a few years the contest
began to generate money from
entry fees and raffles.
Since then, the WaveMasters
Society has raised thousands of
dollars for charities and youth-
oriented programs through the
annual surf contest and ongo-
ing endeavors.
Surfing the Blues May 12
The Fourth annual Aqua East
Surfing the Blues surf contest
has been rescheduled for
Saturday, May 12th at the
south side of the Jacksonville


Beach Pier and will now feature
a $10,000 purse, the largest
payout for any Northeast
Florida contest, with the addi-
tion of a pro longboard divi-
sion in honor of the late Aqua
East founder Sandy Forsyth.
The rescheduled contest has
added the Sandy Forsyth
Memorial Longboard Pro
Division with its own $5,000
purse in honor of Forsyth who
passed away in May 2005. The
division's top eight competitors
will all receive cash prizes with
a $2,000 paycheck for first
place.
' Spectators can expect to see
some of the East Coast's finest
.longboarders "hanging ten" in
pursuit of this top prize.
The enhanced Surfing the
Blues shortboard Contest will no
doubt attract even more of the
region's best surfers with its
$5,000 purse and $2,000 first
place payout in its open pro
shortboard division. Prizes and
trophies will also be given out in
five other shortboard divisions.
Entry forms are available at
the Neptune Beach location of
Aqua East and online at florida-
surfing.org. There is a $25
entry fee for amateurs and
$100 fee for open pro divisions.
All entry forms and fees must
be received by May 9.

tact Paul West of FSA at (904)

Outdoor film series still



'magic' for JB's Imatejcek


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR


ike a film director peer- U '.
ing through the lens,
Marilyn Matejcek takes
her job seriously as the special
events coordinator for the city
of Jacksonville Beach.
One of her duties each year-
is to come up with just the
right mix of films for the city-
sponsored Moonlight Movies
series at the SeaWalk Pavilion. |
The sixth annual series
kicks off today at 9 p.m. with
the 1994 surfing documentary
"Endless Summer II." The free,
five-week series resumes
Friday, May 18, with "Ferris
Bueller's Day Off."
Matejcek helped create the unique out-
door event in 2002 and heads a panel that
selects which films to screen each summer.
And, like a film director, she has the last
say on the set.
"I always lean toward the all-around
aspects of a film," Matejcek said about her
tie-breaking chores on the panel.
"We're looking for broad appeal. We try
to get blockbusters and we try to look
through the children's lens.
"One of our movies this year, 'The King
& I,' [Friday, June 1] is a musical that has a
child-like quality to it."
The Friday night series, which expanded
to five films last year, also includes
"Ghostbusters" on May 25 and "Forrest
Gump" on June 8.
Last summer, classic films such as
"Casablanca" and "West Side Story" were
spliced between more recent blockbusters


'Spider-Man


After.the glorious heights
of "Spider-Man 2" proba-
bly the best comic-book
movie ever the franchise
succumbs to sequel-itis with
the decidedly earthbound
"Spider-Man 3."
It's rare that a movie's
opening credits make.you
dread what is to come, but
this might be No. 3's only tri-
umph.
Behind the credits is a
montage of highlights from
the first two, far superior
movies.
Sappy "Star Trek 3" did the
same thing. It's as if co-
writer/director Sam Raimi
was saying, "My other
movies were great, so cut me
some slack for this new one,
would you?"
Write it again, Sam.
Then we get some aw-


such as "Jurassic Park" and
"Big."
S"Endless Summer II" is
JJJ the follow-up film to direc-
S tor/photographer Bruce
Brown's trail-blazing 1966
:documentary, considered
S the granddaddy of all surf
flicks.
One of the principle
surfers in the 100-minute
film, Californian Robert
S "Wingnut" Weaver, will
attend tonight's screening.
Weaver's appearance is
all part of Matejcek's mas-
ter plan to make
Moonlight Movies even
more attractive to film
buffs.
"The surf film coincides
with the WaveMasters Society surf contest
this weekend," said Matejcek, adding that
highlights from past WaveMasters events
will be shown on the SeaWalk Pavilion's 20-
x-42-foot screen prior to "Endless Summer
II."
"We're encouraging people to come in
the spirit of things. For 'Ferris Bueller,' we'll
have a lip-sync contest before the movie,
and for 'Ghostbusters,' it would be great if
people came dressed for the part, so to
speak."
Also new this year is a children's play-
ground area (starting May 18) in Latham
Plaza, which will give the series even more
of an old-time drive-in feel.
The playground will be open from 6 to 8
p.m.

doesn't cast as far-reaching a net


shucks narration from
Spidey/Peter Parker (Tobey
Maguire), telling us how he,s
still in love with M.J. (Kirsten
Dunst) and is still thriving
in college.
Then we're shown what a
nerd Parker still is, as some


idiotic classmates sit behind
him in class using I can't
believe I'm writing this -
pea-shooters on Peter. Do
today's college students even
have time for this kind of
stuff?
Most telling is what we
might call the de-characteri-
zation of M.J. I suppose she
was always just "the girl-
friend in peril" (a la
Superman's Lois Lane), but at
least it wasn't so drearily
obvious in the other movies.
The same woman who
ended "S2" declaring eternal
love for Peter is now a self-
centered drip, whining about
Peter "not considering her
feelings" and other psycho-
babble.

Moonlight: Film series in 6th season


Continued from B-1
For "The King & I,"
Matejcek said she would like
to line up a ballroom danc-
ing primer before the film.
No word on what she is
planning for "Forrest
Gump," but you can bet it
will have something to do
with a box of chocolates,
Films are shown rain or


moonshine.
"As long as it's not light-
ning, we're not going to can-
cel," added Matejcek.
"We've got a marvelous
stage that looks like a drive-
in theater. That's all part of
the magic."
About the only thing that
can top it is having Matejcek
fly in Tom Hanks for the


series finale on June 8.
It's not like she hasn't
gone down that road before.
"When we did 'Jaws' [in
2004], we tried to get
Richard Dreyfuss because
AMC was one of the spon-
sors. It just never worked
out."
I guess we'll have to settle
for chocolates.


Spider: Villains are flimsey, too


Continued from B-1
The villains are flimsy, too.
Peter's buddy-turned-foe Harry
(James Franco) is so sketchily
written, half the time he can't
even remember whether he's
Peter's enemy or not.
The origins of the Sand Man
(Thomas Haden Church) are
sloughed off with a movie'
cliche: He became a crook only
to raise money for his sickly
daughters operation (Awww!).
And don't even get me start-
ed on Peter's job rival Eddie
Brock (Topher Graceless,
excuse me, Grace).
After that, Raimi tosses other
sequels in the air and picks
their worst elements off the
floor.
The villains are so weak on
their own, they have to bond
to fight Spider-Man (same as in
"Batman Forever"). Some alien
goo lands on Spidey/Peter and
makes him show his darker
side ("Superman 3," been
there, done that).
The special effects are snazzy,
as always, even though Raimi
has publicly claimed that he
didn't have enough time to get
them right..So that means he


had time to hone the script
and let that slide instead?
And finally, a sop to fans of
cult actor Bruce Campbell: As
in the first two movies, his
short but funny role here is
probably the movie's highlight.
The message that this movie
labors to shove down our
throats is that each person has


a choice and should make it
properly. Here's my recom-
mended choice for "S3": Wait
for it on HBO.
"Spider-Man 3" is rated PG-
13 for some adult language,
and several scenes of intense
violence.

Cultural Council report reveals impact of arts


Weekend 3


Music, theater and art gal-
leries give us pleasure in our
leisure time, but the financial
impact of art in our lives is
equally important.
The Cultural Council of
Greater Jacksonville released
some significant figures
recently which are worth
repeating.
In 2005, 39 art organiza-
tions created 410 full-time
jobs, 505 part-time jobs and
303 independent contractors.
Also important, these
organizations recorded admis-
sions of more than 1.43 mil-
lion people, nearly two times
the number of people living
in Jacksonville.
These nIf rts tell the story
of how art influences the
community in many ways.

The Women's Center of
Jacksonville has issued a "Call
to Artists." Art and Soul is
acceptingg submissions from
women artists to participate
in "Lost and Found."
This is a challenge to artists
to take recycled objects,
everyday items and found
obijLct and transform them
into works of art.
All media will be accepted
including collage, mixed
media and sculpture. Works
selected will be on display for
a three-month exhibition in
the Women's Center at 6544
Colcord Ave., Jacksonville.
Call 722-3000 to request an
application.

The Cummer Museum of
Art & Gardens will open a
new exhibit, "Rather Strange
Developments Picasso,
Kandinsky and Mondrian
from the Munson-Williams-
Proctor Art Institute," on May
17.
The exhibit will run
through Aug. 12, 2007. This
is an opportunity to see some
of the great European artists
like Mondrian, Kandinsky,
Dali, Paul Klee and others
who introduced us to
Surrealism and other abstract
and non-objective styles.
The works of these pioneer-
ing abstract artists are educa-
tional in understanding
today's modern Art. Call 356-1
6857 for information.

SCREEN


COLUMBIA PICTURES
Peter Parker (Toby Maguire) has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to M.J. (Kirsten Dunst) and his duties as
a superhero in the action-adventure "Spider-Man 3."


Hollywood has its own summer timetable


When it comes to starting
summer, Hollywood is more
anxious than an under-
achieving middle-schooler.
For movies at least, it start-
ed lastweek with "Waitress."
In the film, "Felicity's" Keri
Russell stars as a pregnant
waitress plotting her escape
from an abusive husband.
This is the final movie
from "Indie It Girl" Adrienne
Shelly, who was murdered
last November.
The rest of the up-and-
comers are as follows"
"Spider-Man 3" See my
review in this issue if you
dare. (Opens May 4)
"Georgia Rule" Lindsay
Lohan plays a rebellious girl
(quite a stretch) sent to live
with her equally assertive
grandmother (Jane Fonda).
(May 11)
"Delta Farce" In this
spoof of macho-military
movies, Larry the Cable Guy
goes to Iraq. As well he
should. (May 11)
"Shrek the Third" -
Everyone's favorite ogre
(voiced again by Mike Myers)
is thrown into royalty as the
heir to The Land of Far, Far
Away.


STEVE
BAILEY
REVIEWER


Scripted by the writers of
"Who Framed Roger
Rabbit?", which gives one
hope. (May 18)
"Pirates of the Caribbean:
At World's End" Johnny
Depp in a third go-round as a
fey pirate? At wit's end, more
like it. (May 25)
"Knocked Up" From
the writer-director of "The
40-Year-Old Virgin" comes
"Grey's Anatomy's"
Katherine Heigl as the fetal
recipient of a one-night
stand. Did you ever think
you'd live to see a main-
stream movie with that title?
(June 1)
"Nancy Drew" The
famed female sleuth (played


by, believe it or not, Julia
Roberts, niece Emma) returns
to the silver screen after 60
years, where she tries to
resolve a cold-case murder in
Hollywood. (June 15)
"Evan Almighty" It's a
sort-of sequel to "Bruce
Almighty," minus Jim Carrey
but with Morgan Freeman
returning as God. Here, Steve
Carell plays a politician cho-
sen by God to become a sec-
ond Noah. (June 22)
"Live Free or Die Hard" -
Bruce Willis returns as reluc-
tant hero John McClane.
Personally I'd rather live free
'of' "Die Hard," but that's
just me. (June 27)
"Ratatouill" From Pixar
and the director of "The
Incredibles" comes this tale
of a Parisian rat who wants
to make it big as a chef.
Yeah, I,ve had some meals
that tasted like that. (June
29)
"Harry Potter and the
Order of the Phoenix" -
Harry's fifth movie involves
yet another prickly Dark Arts
teacher (Imelda Staunton).
(July 13)

Waters, movie-turned-musi-
cal about 1960s segregation
gets back to being a movie
again, with John Travolta as
a plus-size woman (no, that's
not a typo). (July 20)
"The Simpsons Movie" -
Creators Matt Groening and
James L. Brooks remain tight-
lipped about this long-await-
ed TV spin-off, but they
promise that the writers
include a smorgasbord of the
shows original crew. Mmm,
smorgasbord. (July 27)

Weekend 6


The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader











Interesting Italian wines discovered and enjoyed


his country has a love
affair with Italian cui-
sine, so it's only natu-
ral that its affections extend to
its wine. Its light and quaffable
red wines are perfect matches
to pasta and the simple, crisp
white wines are well suited for
spring weather. Throw a steak
on the grill and barolo is as
good as any serious red wine.
Here are some interesting
Italian wines we have discov-
ered over the past several
weeks:
Sartori di Verona
Valpolicella Classico
Superiore 2004 ($15). We
shed a tear when we pour the
last drop of this beautiful
valpolicella. Bigger than most
valpolicellas, it is packed with
fresh plum fruit. It's a blend of
corvina veronese, rondinella
and molinara.
Santi Valpolicella Solane
Classico Superiore 2004
($13). Blended with the classic


TOM MARQUART
and PATRICK DARR
'The Wine Guys'
grapes of this wine (corvina,
rondinella, molinara), this is
an opulent valpolicella with
aromas of cloves and a jammy
palate of cherries. It's a classic
match to pasta and pork.
Medium body.
Melini Chianti Classico
Granaio 2003 ($16). Layered
aromas with an earthy, bold
berry flavors and long finish.


Da Vinci 2005 Chianti
($16). Distributed in the states
by Gallo, this simple chianti
has merlot and syrah in the
blend to give it a soft, volup-
tuous character. Lots of ripe
plum and round tannins make
it a good companion to pasta.
We see it a lot in Italian restau-
rants and it represents a good
value.
Tenuta Di Arceno
Primavoce Tuscany 2003
($17). The name primavoce
refers to the leading voice in
an opera. There is a lot of
power packed into this very
reasonably priced wine. A red
table wine from Tuscany that
is a somewhat non-traditional
blend of 57 percent merlot, 22
percent cabernet sauvignon,
13 percent sangiovese and 8
percent syrah. Vinified from
fully ripe fruit that tastes of
bold cassis and cherry flavors,
and aged for 10 months in
French oak. A pleasure .to
drink this wine will pair well


with heavier styled winter fare
such as stews and meat/game
dishes.
Angelini Tuttobene 2005
($11). Here's a decent Tuscan
red blend of merlot, san-
giovese and canaiolo that
debuted in the states just a
couple of years ago. Ripe red
cherry fruit with good body
and some herbal notes.
Mastroberardino Lacryma
Christi del Vesuvio Rosso
2004 ($22). This wine has
earned a spot in our hearts,
perhaps because of some fond
memories sipping wines with
Carlos Mastroberardino in
Amalfi. Made with the ancient
grape piedirosso grown in vol-
canic soil surrounding Mt.
Vesuvius, the wine has lots of
personality. Velvet texture,
assertive berry aromas and
cherry, plum flavors.
La Tunella Tocai Friulano
2005 ($20). This is an excel-
lent and different wine from
the Colli Orientali Del Fruili


region of Italy. The tocai friu-
lano grapes give off an under-
stated bouquet of pear and
acacia. Smooth mouthfeel, dry
and versatile with fish or
pasta.
Fernando Pighin & Figli
Pinot Grigio 2005 ($23).
Melon and pineapple notes
with a good dose of spice and
hazelnuts. Simple and cleanly
made.
Bollini Pinot Grigio 2005
($15). A good value from the
Trentino region with lemon
and grapefruit nose, almond


finish and good acidity to
make it a nice food match.
WINE OF THE WEEK
Domaine Sang des Cailloux
Vacqueyras Cuvee Floureto
2004 ($32). Domaine Sang
makes some bigger wines from
this region of southern Rhone
Valley, but our money for cur-
rent drinking is on the Cuvee
Floureto. Dense, rich raspberry
and plum fruit, and a dash of
white pepper. It is a wonderful
blend of grenache (75 per-
cent), syrah, mourvedre and
cinsault. We bought a case.

Tips offered for organizing tools


Dear Jane,
Do you have any tips for
organizing tools? I am deter-
mined to clean out the garage this
year.
Thanks,
Megan M.
Dear Megan, '
As we begin to delve deeper
into home improvement we
pick up skills, confidence and
plenty of tools along the way.
If you're an avid do-it-your-
selfer, you may find that your
tools have taken over a portion
of your home or in your case,
the garage.
Having a collection of tools
with no place to call home can
be very frustrating. Not to
mention with every job comes
a new stash of nails, screws,
sandpaper and other such
materials. Who wants to rustle
around in a duffel bag stuffed
with screwdrivers, wall
anchors and speaker wire just
to find the right size screw?
So, even if your garage looks
like a major storm has just
blown through, trust us, you
can recover.
Assess the Damage
Your level of disorganization
is likely deterniied byfqy:j
many tools you have and
whether or not you are a natu-
rally tidy person. Before you
begin, collect all of your tools
together and assess the situa-
tion. Set aside the absolute
must-keeps: the tools you love
and will never part with. Then


'~e .k/NC.

I


f [ ',


HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'

look at the rest of your tools
and'be honest with yourself.
Make an "I don't need you any-
more" pile and let the purge
begin.
The Kiss Off
If your tools are still in good
working order, consider donat-
ing them to Goodwill or The
Salvation Army. You may also.
be able to get some money for
your throwaways by hosting a
garage sale. Any garage sale
wiith the word "tools" in jheg
i i,tieigfr fsala will send, Tanes,
like yourself flocking to your
house.
The Toolbox
The toolbox is a great option
for your non-power tools, but
you can pretty much forget
getting anything that runs on


electricity in there. The upside
to these boxes is that they
come in a variety of materials,
from plastic to metal, and
therefore have the potential to
be pretty inexpensive (under
$30). The leveled compart-
ments make it easy to see
everything all at once, and
regardless of the caliber, they
are a great resource for just get-
ting the organization ball
rolling.
Do it Yourself Organization
These days there a host of
products out there dedicated
to giving your tools a good
home, and they don't require
buying a toolbox. One great
product is a magnetic mat that
you can simply stick your
hand tools to. They can be
found at many home improve-
ment stores starting at about
$15.
With so many options at
your disposal, there is no
excuse not to make your next
project an organizational task.
It will make your home
improvement experience all
that more enjoyable and you'll
be less likely to put off the
projects you know'you need to
do.
Good, 'luck getting organ-
ized.
Hugs n' hammers,
Jane

tion and more great projects

Create a terrific tray ceiling in a weekend


Tray ceilings started to
appear in thel980s and
quickly became com-
monplace in the 1990s.
Ceilings have now become a
focal point for many rooms
with beams, ceiling insets,
and lighted moulding.
However, there are lots of 10-
and 20-year-old houses with
plain tray ceilings crying for
decoration. If you have a sim-
ple tray ceiling, all you need is
a weekend and some imagina-
tion and you can have a ceil-
ing that inspires you to look
up.

Bedroom interest
Putting some interest here
can perk up the whole bed-
room. If you want a clean,
uncluttered or contemporary
style, paint the ceiling inset of
your tray a few shades darker
than the ceiling color or the
same color as the wall color.
If your tray ceiling is all
white, painting it with a cor-
responding color will help to
unify the tray ceiling so that
it's not a "white hole" any
longer.
If your bedroom is more tra-
ditional, try your hand at
installing crown moulding or
hire it out. Because you're
only doing a small space,
splurge on some deeper
moulding. Or, if you have a
one-story house, hire an elec-
trician to install recessed
lights in the four corners or
add a plug so you can place
rope lights inside some crown
moulding installed about
seven inches down from the


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST-

corners. This really dresses up
the tray ceiling and creates a
wonderful ambiance in the
room with soft lighting.
When a bedroom has a
more contemporary style, give
the ceiling some real punch
by making an arbor of stained
slats to fit inside the tray. It
looks incredible when the
slats are stained to match the
furniture. Install stained run-
ner boards inside the tray and
affix to the wall or ceiling.
Then, nail stained slats so that
they're evenly spaced over the
entire tray and flush with the
opening and surrounding ceil-
ing. It's a very sophisticated
look that takes more time
than money to make.

Living and Dining
If you have tray ceilings in
your living or dining room,
add picture frame moulding
around the light fixture and
install wallpaper within the
moulding to create interest


inside your inset. If you're
especially handy, painting a
faux scene inside the mould-
ing makes a special and
unique touch. Tray ceilings in
living areas are also good
spots for accent color. Too
scared to put color on the
walls? Then paint the inset of
the tray ceiling. Pick out an
accent color from your fur-
nishings and then paint the
inset and sides with the color.
Other options include
installing monorail lighting
inside the inset and hanging
pendant or spots that can
highlight artwork or other
areas of the room.

Revamp ligt boxes
Do you ave a 1980s fluo-
rescent light box? If yours is
recessed, you're in luck. And,
if you're tired of feeling like
you're cooking in the office,
you can have an update in
your kitchen in a weekend,
usually in one day provided
your fixture is sheet rocked
and finished out. Remove the
fixture and then paint the
inset to match the ceiling.
Install moulding in the cor-
ners inside the inset and deco-
rate the top of the inset with a
coordinating color, if you like.
Lastly, in the center of the
inset, install a pendant light
fixture or small chandelier for
a trendy update. If you're not
comfortable working with
electricity, hire an electrician
and always work with the
electricity turned off at the
breaker box.
With a few simple changes,
you can give your tray ceiling

is clean, crisp and tailored, and shows how, with some attention, a tray ceiling can go from boring
to bold.


a treat and take it from a
white hole to a place of inter-
est that updates the whole
room.

SPOT OUT If you've tried
all of the normal spot-and-
stain removers without suc-
cess, give this a try: If the gar-
ment is white or light colored,
use three-percent hydrogen
peroxide on a cotton swab to
dab at the stain. Allow it to set
for several hours because it acts
as a milder, slower bleaching
agent. Launder again as usual.

BURNT RICE If you burn.a
pot of rice, place a slice of
white or "light" bread on top of
the rice. Let it sit for a few min-
utes (5-10). The burnt taste will
be gone, but be sure NOT to
scrape the bottom of the pan.
Just use as much as you can
without touching the bottom.

SAME OLD, SAME OLD -
Some children these days
seem to have a lot of tpys;


some of which never see the
light of day. To keep children
interested and to get the best
out of their toys, divide them
into two different toy boxes
and rotate them every two or
three weeks. This way, they
,o't get bored. Ada T.

BMW 2007



Some of our safety features keeps you from

ever needing our other safety features.


It may seem counterintuitive, but BMW developed an engine that improved both. A
magnesium and aluminum engine block reduces weight, while Valvetronic technolo-
gy manages valve timings and lift, allowing the engine to breathe more easily. In the
3 Series, this means the inline six-cylinder, 230-hp engine provides a blissful union
of fuel efficiency (20 city/29 highway mpg)1 and performance (0-60 in 6.3 sec.)2. To
experience first hand how great ideas like these live on to become Ultimate Driving
Machines,@ visit your local BMW center for a test drive.

^ Your Horoscope


by CHARLES COOPER
ARIES iMarch 21 to April 19M It's a week of
long work hours for you. Unfortunately, dead-'
lines must be met. Use the weekend to rest and
recuperate.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A particular
project needs a great deal of attention 'to
detail. Be sure you're at your sharpest. In fact,
you come up with some surprising innova-
tions if you put your mind to it.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Most of the
time, you like being independent. This week,
though, you're in the mood for some compan-
ionship. Seek out good friends for a nice social
outing.
SCANCER (June 21 to July 22) Something you
have to do at work requires some research on
your part. However, don't go it alone. Enlist
the aid of competent co-workers.
LEO (luly 23 to August 22) Not everyone
close to you is on the same page It seems a
career change you have in mind is being met
with some resistance. In the end, do %what's
best for you.
VIRGO IAugust 23 to September 22) You
could be tempted this week to take advantage
of a friend who's always been there for you.
Think before you do anything rash You don't
want to alienate this person.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The
beginning of the week is most productive.
Later, though, there are some obstacles. Relax;
all works out to your satisfaction by the week-


end.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Once again, a friend needs some financial
assistance. However, it's okay for you to say
no. This person is being irresponsible.
SAGITTARIUS INovember 22 to December
21) Distractions are rampant in the workplace.
This doesn't bode well since you need to mar-
shal all your powers of concentration. This
weekend, singles meet with potential
romance.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
You and a loved one are at cross purposes this
week. Before you lose \your temper, sit down
with this person. A meeting of the minds can
work wonders.
AQUARIUS IJanuary 20 to February 18) You
indulge your wanderlust this week by taking a
trip. Although it could be related to work, you
have a great time. This weekend, follow
through on a promise you made to a family
member.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) What's
going on at home has you in a quandary.
However, don't allow this to .distract.you at

week.

The Players suits Ames' game


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Stephen Ames
had that look
again. The
unmistakable
disposition of a
champion.

It was a crisp Monday
morning in March and
Ames was smiling that
toothy grin of his as he
recalled winning the 2006
Players Championship, the
pinnacle of his 12-year PGA
Tour career.
"Obviously, it's a good
memory for me," Ames, 43,
said this past March during
Media Day at The Players.
"It's given me the confi-
dence to compete against the
best in the world, week to
week. That's what we're all
trying to do basically is to be
as consistent as we can any-
time we tee it up."
The runaway winner of last
year's Players tournament at
the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium
Course, Ames routed one of
the strongest fields in golf
with a 5-under 67 final round
to win by six shots over run-
ner-up Retief Goosen.
On a windy Sunday in
March, Ames posted the low-
est final round score of the
day on the second toughest
final round in TPC Sawgrass
history.
He also carded the lowest
score of the second round, a
6-under 66, and tied for first
in fairways hit (75 percent)
and greens in regulation (72)
over the 72-hole tournament.
His 67 on Sunday, which
included five birdies and an
eagle on the par-5 16th, was
lights-out golf from a self-
described "average hitter" off
the tee.
"I might be hitting a 3-
wood and Tiger and Vijay will
be hitting irons," said Ames,
who ranked 88th on the tour
in driving distance last year.
"It's always been the guy
who hits the most fairways,
the most greens and the most
putts who wins. It's not the
one who is scrambling all
over the golf course."

Stephen Ames is beginning to feel like a champion as he waits for Vijay Singh to putt on the 18th
green during the final round of last year's Players Championship at TPC at Sawgrass.


Heat of battle in 2002

Ames had that look of
supreme satisfaction as he
waited for his playing partner,
Ponte Vedra Beach resident
Vijay Singh, to putt out on
the par-4 18th on champi-
onship Sunday last year.
Putter in hand and arms
folded across his chest, you
just knew Ames was starting


to feel the first tingling sensa-
tions of sweet success.
It was a much different feel-
ing than the one he had in
March 2002, when Ames had
his heart ripped out by Craig
Perks, who chipped in for par
at 18 to beat Ames by two
strokes and become the first
person to the win The Players
on his first try.
"2002 is when I started to


mature as a person," Ames
recalled in March.
"And 2004 was a break-
through year. I found a psy-
chologist who helped me get
out of the rut I was in.
"Robert being on the bag
with me helped, too. The last
three years have been really
good for me. Two big wins,
eighth on the money list [in
2004] and 26th last year."


Ames credited psychologist
Alan Fine for helping him
keep a "practice round" men-
tality about him during last
year's tournament.
Ames also praised his cad-
die, younger brother Robert,
for making sure the pair did-
n't linger over any bad shots
like Ames' double bogey on
No. 10 that could have
derailed his title chances.
"[Robert] looked at me and
said, 'You've got eight holes to
go. Let's just forget about it,' "
Ames recalled after last year's
tournament.
"That's just the nature of
the game. You've got to play
golf that way."

Canadian by choice,
Trinidadian by birth

Born in San Fernando,
Trinidad, in 1964, Ames and
his brother grew up on a
Caribbean island where golf
takes a back seat to soccer and
cricket.
The island has only three
18-hole golf courses and fewer
than 1,500 golfers, according
to Ames.
The country's most recent
sports milestone was qualify-
ing for the 2006 World Cup.
Sprinter Ato Boldon was a
silver and bronze medalist in
the 2000 Summer Olympics.
So, where does Ames stand
in the sports annals of his
native land, now that's he's
won what the PGA Tour has
long considered its fifth
major?
"It's always been a very
cricket and soccer orientated
country," Ames said last year.
"Golf has always been a bit
of a sideline and recognized as
an old man's sport."
Ames is the first touring pro
to emerge from Trinidad and
Tobago. His grandmother was
a two-time women's golf
champion on the island.
Now a Canadian citizen,
Ames resides in Alberta with
his wife and two sons. He
played college golf in Boca
Raton and turned pro in
1987.
Some of his career high-
lights have come on Florida
courses. Ames won his first
and only Nationwide Tour
title in 1991 at Pensacola and
in 2000 shot a career-low
round of 61 at Doral.

volunteer chairman Rusty Pritchett of Atlantic Beach.


MEET TIM TRESCA


2007 Players chairman started


volunteering at very young age


by REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST
The old saying that the
apple doesn't fall far from the
tree might be familiar to those
who know Tim Tresca, the
volunteer chairman of this
year Players Championship.
His father, Fuller Tresca, was
Players chairman in the early
1990s and remains an avid
supporter of the PGA Tour
event.
This doesn't mean that
fathers necessarily expect their
male offspring to follow them
in whatever profession they
might be engaged in, but,
where golf is concerned, the
youngsters have a good
chance of becoming involved
if they've been around it since
childhood.
Like other volunteer chair-
persons in the past, Tim
Tresca came up through the


volunteer ranks. The only dif-
ference is he started much
younger than most of his
counterparts.
"I did a little of everything,"
Tresca recalled in a recent
phone interview.
"That included ecology a
nice word for trash picking -
to parking, scoring, entertain-
ment and what you would
call a go-fer for whatever was
needed."
He laughed when asked if
he had specific training from
his old man and what advice
he'd been given.
"Oh, he's always given me
advice, but when it came to
learning the ropes [as a volun-
teer] I had to learn that
myself," Tresca said.
"Actually, there are a lot of
good people involved in the
volunteer program who are
always there to help the new-
comers."


One of the things Tresca
says he likes about volunteer-
ing for the tournament is
meeting so many people and
the knowledge that what
you're doing is not only help-
ing the PGA Tour and golf,
but also the community.
Tresca came into volunteer
work with a sense of obliga-
tion forged by being around
his former chairman father.
A Jacksonville native, Tresca
attended the prestigious Bolles
School.
But unlike his father, he did
not attend Florida State
University.
"I went to Syracuse," the
younger Tresca said with a
chuckle.
"I just wanted to do some-
thing different and on my
own."

Ames: 'Venue changed'


May 4, 2007 Page 7


THE PLAYERS
H AM P 0 N HI P~


Cont. from page 5
Prior to winning The Players
last year, Ames had top-10 fin-
ishes at three majors, includ-
ing a tie for fifth at the 1997
British Open.
He tied for 11th at the 2006
Masters.

2007 Players setup will
challenge all comers

Ames said he shifted his
golf game into "another gear"
in winning last year's tourna-
ment at TPC Sawgrass.
He said this year's course
set-up and the tournament's
move to May will pose even
more of a challenge for the
144-man field, annually con-
sidered to be the toughest in
golf.
In 2006, the Stadium
Course was refurbished to cre-
ate "firm and fast" conditions,
according to the PGA Tour.
All fairways were stripped
and had layers of sand added
to help with drainage. The
greens were rebuilt with sub-
air systems underneath to
assist with hydration and
water removal in wet condi-
tions.
"I think they're good
changes, no unfair changes.
The ball is going to be run-
ning a little bit more," Ames
said during his visit to
Sawgrass in March.
"I think, overall, the golf
course isn't going to be as
long, but it's going to be even


more difficult. The general
public doesn't realize that
when we play a firmer course,
the fairways that are 25 and
30 wide all of a sudden
become half that.
"I tend to pick the events
that are firm and fast to play.
I'm not a big fan of the West
Coast [tournaments] because
of the fact that it's always wet
there and if you miss a shot, it
doesn't always run into trou-
ble."
PGA Tour pros must shape
most of their shots at TPC
Sawgrass, and this year is no
exception, Ames added.
"Being firm and fast, it's
going to be tougher to hit the
fairways," he said.
"The venue itself has
changed and the scoring is
going to be even higher in
May if it doesn't rain often.
It's going to be even more of a
challenge for us. This is going
to be a different golf course
for everybody in May."
Ames said he heeds the
advice of an old sage every
time he studies his divot pat-
terns.
"As Hogan said, you always
see it in the dirt," adds Ames,
who will try to become the
first back-to-back Players
champion.
"I've always enjoyed playing
this golf course," he said last
year after winning the $1.44
million first-place prize.
"It's always suited my eye
and my game."

Tresca: 2007 chair

Cont. from page 6
With a good business education, Tresca figures to
keep following his father's example, not just in golf
but in the heavy equipment business they run in
Jacksonville.
Tim is president and founder of Tresca Machinery
Inc., which represents JCB Construction projects in
northern and central Florida.
In addition to volunteering at The Players, Tresca, a
Ponte Vedra Beach resident, has served on the board of
governors for The Boys and Girls Club of Northeast
Florida and is an active member of Christ Episcopal
Church in Ponte Vedra.
And, yes, the new Players chairman plays golf, but is
reluctant to reveal his handicap.
"Let's just say I've been trying to get it down, but I
just haven't had time off from business or the tourna-
ment since I've been chairman," Tresca said.
In high school at Bolles, his game wasn't golf, it was
swimming.
"I did freestyle and backstroke," he added.
Tim's wife, Beth, isn't a golfer, but he said she enjoys
watching the sport, especially the annual Players tour-
nament.
"She understands the long hours .[of volunteering],
too," Tresca adds.
As a boy, Tresca said he "helped out" at the old
Greater Jacksonville Open, a now defunct PGA event
that was held, among other places, at Selva Marina
Country Club in Atlantic Beach.
He said the 2004 Players stands out in his mind
because, "The rain was so bad, I didn't think we'd get
out of there."
With his aquatic background, Tresca figured he
could always backstroke his way to safety.
A volunteer chairman has to be ready for anything.

TOP 10 AND THEIR PLAYERS CHANCES


by ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

This year's Players Champion-
ship is like a mutual fund past
performance may not be indica-
tive of future earnings.
That's because nearly every-
thing about The Players is new.
The Stadium Course has been
refurbished, with the twin goals
of making it more difficult to play
and better able to handle adverse
weather.
With the move to May, players
will probably have to contend
with soaring temperatures and
sweltering conditions. And with
200 more trees planted through-
out the course, errant drives have
the potential to spell disaster in
capital letters.
While other courses may favor
long hitters or accurate hitters or
those blessed with terrific short
games, Sawgrass puts nearly
equal importance on all of those
elements. Who wins The Players
Championship traditionally
comes down to who's playing
best that week. Still, there are pat-
terns and trends among golfs
elite which may indicate who has
the best shot at hoisting the crys-
tal trophy in the first Players to be
decided in May.
Using a combination of sea-
son-to-date World Golf Rankings,
the importance of skills particular
to Sawgrass and performance his-
tory at the TPC, the following is a
breakdown of who may emerge
victorious this year.

1. Tiger Woods

Tiger won the Buick Invita-
tional in January and the World
Golf Championships in March,
an event, incidentally, that took
place during the slot vacated by
The Players' move to May.
Though Woods held a brief
lead during the final round of last
month's Masters, he uncharacter-
istically could not close the deal.
He finished in a tie for second at
3-over, letting a chance for his
fifth green jacket slip by.
Still, how can you not call the
world's top-ranked golfer the




6


favorite in every event he enters?
This season Tiger has demon-
strated he can still have trouble
finding fairways, but his tee
shots are so long that getting
onto greens from the
rough, or behind trees, or
out of the sand is now
second nature. That may
prove more challenging
with the Stadium
Course's tweaked lay-
out.
After shooting even
par in the opening
round of last year's
Players, Woods carded a 3-
under 69 on Friday and
appeared headed for the fist
page of the leaderboard. Rut
over par rounds on Saturday 173 1
and Sunday (75) left him in oe tor
22nd place.
Everyone knows the striped
one feeds of challenges real or
imagined so perhaps being
The Players' first May winner will
provide enough impetus for Tiger
to return to the Players Champ-
ionship winner's circle, which he
hasn't visited since his only victo-
ry in 2001.
Or maybe the event's push to
become golf's fifth major will pro-
vide proper motivation, since
everyone knows how important
those titles are to him.

2. Jim FUryk

It's more than just home cook-
ing that makes Furyk a top con-
tender in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Currently ranked second in the
world, Furyk hasn't yet won in
2007 but has showcased remark-
able consistency.
In nine events this year, Furyk
has three top ten finishes, his best
was a third at the Nissan Open,
and has made eight cuts while
earning more than $1 million.
Last year, Furyk won the
Wachovia Championship and
the Canadian Open, while finish-
ing second in the Verizon
Heritage, Buick Open, The Tour
Championship and the U.S.
open.
Those results contributed to his
No. 2 world ranking, a feat the
Pennsylvania native says has gar-


How


will the


world's besi


stack up at


Sawgrass?






nered
him more attention than win-
ning the 2003 U.S. Open.
In last year's Players, Furyk fired
an opening-round 65 amid rain-
drops to share the lead with Davis
Love III. While Love imploded
with an 83 on Friday and missed
the cut, Furyk shot a 71 to take a
one stroke lead over Stephen
Ames and Adam Scott heading
into the weekend.
A third-round 75 knocked
Furyk off the lead but he
rebounded to shoot level par on
Sunday and finished in a four-
way tie for third with a 283 total.


3. Adam Scott

The 2004 Players Champion-
ship winner put together a fine
season last year, winning the Tour
Championship, Nissan Open,
Barclay's Classic and the World
Golf Championships.
The 26-year-old Australian is
one of the sport's brightest young
stars and obviously knows how to
win on the Stadium Course -
well, the old Stadium Course.
With new, faster greens and a
trickier layout, the tract doesn't
exactly resemble the one he con-
quered a few years ago.
Following his 27th-place finish
at the Masters last month, Scott
lamented the lightning-fast
greens and said such conditions












Adam Scott


don't ideally suit his game.
Uh-oh. Many of the changes at
Sawgrass have been to the put-
ting surfaces, making them
harder and faster.
Scott followed his 2004
Players victory with an
eighth-place finish in
t 2005, then tied for
53rd last year.
He was 2-under
after the opening
round last year, then
turned in a scorching
67 on Friday to put
himself within a shot of
the lead.
A third-round 82, how-
ever, saw Scott tumble
down the leaderboard and
out of contention.
It's tough to repeat at Sawgrass,
but Scott has the game to do it.


4. Ernie Els

After declaring earlier this year
he wanted to challenge Tiger for
the world's top ranking, Els has
struggled to find his game.
From tee to green, the big
South African has been solid; it's
putting that has let him down.
Against watered-down competi-
tion in last month's BMW Asian
Open, Els had a golden opportu-
nity to score his first win of the
2007 season but finished in a tie
for fifth.
Els rebounded nicely from a
knee injury in 2005 to record
eight top-10 finishes last year. He
was third in the British Open and
fifth at the World Golf Champ-
ionships.
The 38-year-old has an up-and-
down Players Championship his-
tory. Last year he tied for sixth,
his best finish since placing in the
same position a decade earlier.
Els seems to confound the
experts. Possessing of one of the
smoothest swings ever, he's long
off the tee, has a splendid short
game and a innate ability to
think his way around a golf
course. So why hasn't he won
more?
Fifteen PGA Tour victories,
including a pair of U.S. Opens
and a British Open, is nothing to


sneeze at but it seems outside
endeavors like business ventures
and family obligations have dis-
tracted Els in recent years.

5. Phil Mickelson

Will a new swing coach help
Phil in time for The Players? Stay
tuned, golf fans.
Lefty recently parted ways with
longtime coach Rick Smith and is
now working with Butch
Harmon, the man who helped
Tiger re-tool his swing.
Harmon's job will be to make
Mickelson more accurate off the
tee. When Phil won at Pebble
Beach in February, he found the
fairway 81 percent of the time. At
the Masters, however, the defend-
ing champ sprayed shots all over
Augusta National and finished
outside the top 10 for the first
time since 1998.
The professional marriage of
Hannon and Mickelson could
prove entertaining. Harmon has
already publically stated that
Adam Scott, not Phil, is his num-
ber-one client and priority.
And Mickelson has earned a
reputation of doing things his
own way regardless of advice
given to him by others.
No doubt the swing guru will
shorten Lefty's motion and that
may translate into better accura-
cy, but only if Mickelson is will-
ing to take fewer chances and
gives up his obsession with driv-
ing distance.
Under Harmon's tutelage, Greg
Norman and Woods each be-
came No. 1 in the world and
Scott has shown steady improve-
ment.
At Sawgrass, Mickelson has had
mixed results. While he tied for
third in 2004, he's also missed the
cut four times and has finished as
low as 66th. Last year, a third
round 69 helped Phil end up tied
for fourth place with a 286 total.
It remains to be seen whether
Harmon's influence will result in
a more "controlled" Phil Mickel-
son.

6. Henrik Stenson

The
sweet-
swinging
Swede cat-
apulted
into the
world
rankings
by virtue
of his win
at the
WGC
Match
Play event
in February. Stenson averages 283 yards
off the tee but sometimes has trouble
finding the fairway (he ranks 166th in
driving accuracy). A terrific short game,
however, more than compensates for
errant work with the driver. And put-
ting is where the 31-year-old makes his
money ranking sixth on tour.
He's competed in The Players just
once, last year, but put together four
good rounds and finished in a four-way
tie for third. First time out on the
Stadium Course, during intermittent
rain no less, Stenson carded a 69 and
he has said he likes the course layout.

7. Vijay Singh

Ponte Vedra
Beach resi-
dent who is
looking for
his first
Players
Champion-
ship, Vijay
has already
won twice
this year:

Mercedes-
Benz
Championships and the Arnold Palmer
Invitational in March.
The 43-year-old Fijian has had mer-
curial results on the Stadium Course.
After finishing as runner-up to Tiger
Woods in 2001, Singh missed the cut
the next two years. The past three years
have seen him finish 13th, 12th and
eighth, respectively.

8. Relief Goosen

While
Goosen's
world rank-
ing has
slipped to
eighth, he's
The Players
because of
his runner-
up finish in
2006.


THE PLAYERS
CH AMPION SH P
The big South African is long off the
tee, shows a deft touch around the
greens and projects a steely demeanor
that may become an asset if the
Stadium Course proves as difficult as
forecast this year.
This could be a breakthrough season
for the 36-year-old. In addition to last
year's second-place finish here, Goosen
was third at the Masters and fourth in
the Tour Championship.
He likes TPC Sawgrass and despite his
power has always been more comfort-
able on a shot-maker's course.


9. Geoff Ogilvy

Geoff
Ogilvy has
struggled on
the Stadium
Course. The
Aussie has l
competed in
The Players
five times and
missed the cut
three of those
years.
Still, the 29-
year-old has
earned his No. 9 world ranking with a
second-place finish in the World Match
Play event and a third at Doral.
Ogilvy's success in 2007 has nearly
matched his career total of three wins
since joining the PGA Tour in 2000.
Like many golfers, he never broke par
at last month's Masters but managed to
finish in a tie for 24th place.
Can early-season success translate into
S-;f- Ci t_ ?1 St th


.a ert vorIyI: JrangCI Ulllgs ave
happened.


10. Fred Funk


Funk is
certainly
not 10th in : ..
the World
Golf
Rankings, .
but he '
appears on
this list
because he's
won the
tournament
before, lives B.
in Ponte
Vedra
Beach, and
has a rabid cheering section known as
"Funk's Punks."
Now a part-time member of the
Champions Tour while still participat-
ing in select PGA Tour events, the 50-
year-old showcased a game well-suited
to TPC Sawgrass when he claimed the
Waterford Crystal trophy in 2005.
He followed that with a 16th-place
showing last year, a season in which he
also finished second at the Zurich
Classic of New Orleans.
Funk emerged from a pack of con-
tenders two years ago and defiantly
slammed his hat to the turf when his
last putt dropped at 18. It's that fire and
tenacity that makes him a fan favorite.

Sous when you meet him. "I enjoy helping
people, especially with cosmetic dentistry.
We don't just change smiles, we change lives," he says.
In addition to the cosmetic dentistry, this doctor is proud to offer
assistance to those who may be suffering neuromuscular problems
relating to dentistry. The patient who has headaches, neck aches,
ringing in the ears, jaw pain, and other such symptoms that one does-
n't usually associate with the teeth can often be helped by neuromus-
cular dentistry. Dr. Blankenship can investigate these symptoins and
provide relief in many cases. This is just one more example of looking
at each patient as an individual and solving the mystery that will give
relief and long-term comfort. Persistent symptoms can be perma-
nently relieved.

Young guns poised for success


by DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

In sports there are three types
of players seasoned veterans,
rookies and the young guns.
On the PGA Tour things are
no different.
Although golf still follows
the "old guy chasing a white
ball" stereotype, there are some
younger guys paving the way
toward the future of the Tour.
Players such as Sergio Garcia,
Adam Scott, Aaron Baddeley
and Camilo Villegas have
already proven they can play
with the big guys, and a few
have broken through with Tour
victories.
One thing they all have in
common is they're all under 30
years old.
Scott has been the most suc-
cessful in Ponte Vedra, having
won The Players in 2004 at age
23, the youngest-ever winner of
the tournament, and followed
the win with a top 10 in 2005.
That's a far cry from his first
visit to the Stadium Course in
2002, where he missed the cut.
Scott's top 10 in 2005 is just
the sixth such finish after win-
ning the tournament the previ-
ous year.
The 26-year-old Australian
turned professional back in
2000 and shortly started win-
ning on the European Tour. By
2003, Scott had picked up his
first PGA Tour win. Scott has
won 12 times since turning pro,
his biggest win coming right
here at TPC Sawgrass.
Interestingly, Scott's first three
official Tour wins came on TPC
courses.
In 2005, Scott entered the
top 10 in the Official World
Golf Rankings for the first time.
He continued his hot streak in
2006, winning The Tour
Championship and finishing
third on the money list.
Currently ranked third in the
world behind only Tiger Woods
and Jim Furyk, Scott contended
in last year's Players until a dis-
astrous third round doomed
him to a 53rd place finish. He
fired a 2-under par 70 in the
opening round, then tamed the
Stadium Course with a 67 on
Friday to enter the weekend
within a shot of the 36-hole
lead.
IErrant off the tee and with
his irons, the young Australian
shot a disappointing 82 on
Saturday to drop way back on
the leaderboard.
With incredible potential,
and with most pros finding

University of Florida graduate Camillo Villegas, 25, is one of golf's "young guns," players under 30 years old and poised to achieve
success on the PGA Tour. Aaron Baddeley, 2004 Players champion Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia are among such players.


their best years in their 30s,
Scott is considered the most
exciting golfer to come out of
the Land Down Under since
Greg Norman.
A large gallery usually trails
another of the young guns,
Sergio Garcia. The 27-year-old
gained popularity shortly after
turning pro in 1999, following
a stellar amateur performance
in The Masters that year.
The Spaniard also became
the first player born in the
1980s to win on Tour when he
claimed the 2001 MasterCard
Colonial. Garcia is also the
third player since 1970 to win
six times on the tour by the age
of 25, a feat only Tiger Woods
and Phil Mikelson have been
able to accomplished.
The former junior star has
won 16 times at the profession-
al level, including six on the


PGA Tour. Yet to win a major,
Garcia has been in the running
to get one a few times before,
and even finished in a tie for
fourth at The Players in 2002,
his best finish to date at
Sawgrass.
Last year, Garcia started the
final round one stroke behind
Stephen Ames, but carded a 78
and finished in a tie for 14th.
Aaron Baddeley may not
have the results of Scott or
Garcia, but the 26-year-old still
has plenty of game in the early
stages of his career.
Cut from last year's Players,
Baddeley already has a win this
year, the second of his career,
and is looking to continue his
rise into the company of golf's
elite.
In February, Baddeley won
the FBR Open in Scottsdale,
Ariz. Of the 10 events he's


entered this season, the Aussie
has four top-10 finishes.
While Baddeley hasn't found
much success at The Players,
swing changes during the off-
season have him striking the
ball much more consistently
and his putting has been top
notch.
Camillo Villegas is just 25
years old, but is close to earning
his first victory on tour.
A 2004 graduate of the
University of Florida, Villegas
was in the Players Champion-
ship running last year, carding
a final round 71 to finish with a
283 total, good enough to tie
for third.
The popular Columbian has
already finished second three
times in his career and can be a
strong threat at this year's
Players if he can repeat the
things that put him into con-


tention in 2006. Villegas origi-
nally got a spot in last year's
Players when another former
Gator, Chris DiMarco, with-
drew due to injury.
The 5-foot-9, 160-pound
Villegas has competed in nine
events this season earning one
top 10 finish: a second-place
showing at the FBR Open.
Villegas has earned the nick-
name "Spider-Man" because of
the way he crouches down hor-
izontally on one hand in a ser-
pentine-like position to get a
better read on putts.
With stylish, younger players
taking the tour by storm,
younger fans have started to
swarm the tournaments, and
The Players is no exception.
Scott already has a win at
Sawgrass. Will any of the other
young guns follow suit?

New TPC Sawgrass GM in 'people business'


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
Bill Hughes, the new general
manager of the TPC at
Sawgrass, fell in love with the
game of golf as a teenager
growing up in a farming com-
munity in Ohio.
As general manager of the
TPC at Memphis, Hughes saw
first hand the charitable
impact the PGA Tour makes in
people's lives.
"My life changed after my
first year's tournament when I
walked the hallways of St.
Jude's Children's Hospital and
met the parents and talked to
the doctors and looked into
these children's eyes and I
understood for the first time
the power of prayer and the
power of charity,"said Hughes.
"For me to be associated
with the PGA Tour and the
Tournament Players Club net-
work with its core value of giv-
ing back and saving lives in
communities all over the
country, I am so lucky, hon-
ored and blessed to be a part of
something like this."
Hughes said never in his

Bill Hughes played college
golf at Bowling Green State.
wildest dreams did he imagine
he would manage a club that
hosted a PGA Tour event, let
alone the Tour's flagship and
premier tournament.
His parents never played
golf and Hughes never played
golf on anything other than a


public course until college.
He saved $75 to buy his first
set of clubs, Arnold Palmer
Chargers, which he used to try
out for his high school team as
a sophomore.
By his senior year he was
team captain and most valu-
able player of his golf team
and was offered a college
scholarship to play golf at
Bowling Green State
University.
"The life lessons that the
game holds can impact some-
body the rest of their life,"
Hughes said.
"Practice. Patience.
Dedication. Honesty. I was just
enamored with all of those
characteristics and I thought
I'm going to make this game a
profession; a career if possi-
ble."
Hughes never liked winters
in Ohio so he decided to move
to Florida where he landed a
job as an assistant golf profes-
sional at Pine Tree Golf Club
in Boynton Beach.
Hughes credits Pine Tree
head golf pro Bob Ross Jr. for
showing him the steps to take
to succeed in the golf business.


"He gave me tremendous
advice, fantastic opportunity
and directed me on the path
how to be successful and I lis-
tened," Hughes said.
During the four years
Hughes spent as an assistant at
Pine Tree, he also worked
towards his PGA Tour certifi-
cate, which he earned in 1984.
Hughes was offered a head
pro job at Shawnee Country
Club in Lima, Ohio, and also
met his wife of 21 years, Molly,
during this time.
After six years as head pro-
fessional, he decided the best
career move would be to own
his own golf course.
In 1990, Hughes partnered
with Ron Klausing to open
Country Acres Golf Club in
Ottawa, Ohio.
Hughes' daughter, Kelsey,
now 16, was born a year later
followed by his son,
Christopher "Chipper"
Hughes, now 14.
Hughes earned a certificate
as a PGA master professional
in 1995. At the time, there
were only 150 master profes-
sionals out of 10,000 PGA
America members, Hughes


said.
After Hughes was featured in
an issue of PGA magazine, he
received a call from Pete
Davidson, the chief operating
officer of PGA Tour Golf
Course Properties.
Davidson asked Hughes if he
would be interested in work-
ing for the PGA Tour and the
TPC Network.
"I'm thinking I have a beau-
tiful family, a successful golf
course and all my dreams have
already come true," Hughes
recalled. ,
"But when I got that call
that brought me down to
Ponte Vedra and opened my
eyes to the potential of work-
ing for the Tour, it was an
opportunity to rebirth and get
excited all over again."
Hughes was named general
manager of TPC in Memphis
the summer of 1996 and in
1999 he was asked to open the
TPC at River's Bend in
Cincinnati, a $26-million club
designed by Arnold Palmer.
In 2003 when Hughes was

New clubhouse has old-world 'feel'


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER


"Mediterranean
revival" is how proj-
ect manager of PGA
Tour Construction
Services Cindy Reis
describes the new
clubhouse at the
TPC Sawgrass.

"The new design is brand
new, larger and a totally differ-
ent style," said Reis.
"I think the first thing peo-
ple will notice is the clay tile
roof, like Flagler College. We
also turned the hospitality
view around. The old area
faced the lake and driving
range. Now it looks down holes
9 and 18."
The new facility is on the
same site as the previous club-
house but is nearly double in
size (73,000 square feet), with
an additional 4,000 square feet
of terraces and patios.
The former clubhouse was
45,000 square feet.
The original clubhouse was
completely demolished after
the 2006 Players Champion-
ship. Construction took 13
months and is scheduled for
completion just in time for this
year's Players Championship.
Amenities include a recep-
tion foyer and gallery; golf
shop; resort-style locker rooms;
member/player locker rooms;
champions lounge; main din-
ing grille with 2,550 square feet
and 1,292 square foot terrace;
10,687 square feet of meet-
ing/banquet space.
"The inside decor is not like
anything you're going to see at
a typical golf club," said Cate
Cheever, catering sales manag-
er of TPC Sawgrass.
"When you plan an event or
a wedding you think of a ball-
room, with a giant crystal
chandelier in the middle. This
is totally different. It has that
old-world feel with lots of large
pieces of furniture, and beauti-
ful wood."
The new facility has four
main banquet rooms upstairs.
Each room has it's own bal-
cony and terrace area. Three of
rooms can become one big
room to accommodate 400 to
450 people. The private dining

rooms are located on the first
floor.
Parties of 60 or fewer can
rent out one of the downstairs
rooms featuring patio terraces
overlooking the 18th green.
There is also an 11,000-
square-foot lawn where events
can be held.
TPC Sawgrass is also hiring at
least 60 new employees, includ-
ing chef d'cuisine Maurie
Anderson, formerly of the TPC
at River's Bend in Cincinnati.
Anderson will assist TPC
Sawgrass Executive Chef Adam
Ozga at the new clubhouse.
"The massive hiring is tough
because we've had no work for
all these months and now we
have to train quickly," Cheever
said.
"It's been a challenge but our
manager, Bill Hughes, is won-
derful. He is one of the most
passionate people I've ever met
in my life, not just about the
PGA 'Tour and TPC but life in
general.

Hughes helped open the TPC
at River's Bend and TPC at
Craig Ranch in Dallas. He and


his family moved to Ponte
Vedra last August.
"We have a fabulous staff
here from our resources around


the country," Hughes said.
"We're creating the culture of
our image and our brand of

Q & A with Executive Director Brian Goin


From PGATOUR.com


Since the world's best golfers last
gathered in Ponte Vedra Beach for The
Players Championship last spring, the
event has undergone a metamorphosis.
Building upon its reputation as the PGA
Tour's premier golf tournament hosting
one of the most competitive fields in
the sport, the changes serve to carve out
a unique place in the future of the
game.
A revamped Stadium Course at the
TPC Sawgrass will offer a grander and
more complete experience for competi-
tors and the thousands of resort guests
who annually visit the venue.
"We are still busy putting the finish-
ing touches on as we speak," says
Players Championship executive direc-
tor Brian Goin. "But I have no doubt
that all of the changes will make for a
very exciting and unforgettable tourna-
ment experience."
Goin has already met with members
of the national and local media to
showcase the changes and he recently
answered a few questions regarding the
2007 tournament.
Question: Talk about some of the
most notable changes made to The

technology to enhance
the fans ability to fol-
low scores and shots as
the players play their
rounds. We will also
have hand-held de-
vices available for rent
which will give the fan
an on-demand feature

nology. We will also introduce sound to
the video boards showing our over 20


hours of television coverage through
satellite radios available on site. These
are just a few of the ways that the fan
should enjoy the new technology.
Q: What about other elements that
will enhance The Players experience
for fans?
A: There will be additional bleachers
around 18, and we will introduce
bleachers at 17 and at hole 9. The fans
will also enjoy our new Tournament
Village which includes merchandising,
an upscale concession area with a video
board, The Players Championship
History Pavilion, as well as exhibit areas
for [sponsors] UBS, Pricewater-
houseCoopers and Jeld-Wen.

Q: Parking is always important for
fans, talk about some of the changes
there.

A: Parking has always been our
biggest issue. In 2007, we have
addressed and solved several issues.
First, all of our on-site parking has been
solidified. All parking can be handled
on site Monday through Wednesday for
free in our General Parking Lot off

additional spectators and cars, we will

Thursday through Sunday. All parking
in the General Lot will be free, and
there will be a free shuttle. Thursday
through Sunday all on-site parking will
require a parking pass that must be pur-
chased in advance.

Q: What have been the early reac-
tions from golfers and fans?

A: It seems to be one of excitement
and anticipation. I think there is a huge
"We can't wait to experience the new
Players" factor.

Q: Will fans who watch The Players
on television notice any changes?

A: The fans are going to get to see the
TPC Sawgrass in a whole new way -
Hi-Definition. This new element, being
introduced this year, will enhance the
entire tournament and broadcast for
the viewer. They will also notice the
decrease in commercial inventory.
Thanks to our three [partners], UBS,
PricewaterhouseCoopers and Jeld-Wen,
the commercial inventory will be
reduced by eight minutes per hour, so


CHAMPION SHIPe

:."' . T the viewers will see a lot more golf.


Q: How have the changes to The
Players impacted the way you put the
tournament together?

A: Anytime you make changes you
focus a lot of attention on details so the
change is positive. With all the changes
we are addressing in 2007, our staff and
volunteers have worked very hard to
address any issues that could cause the
experience to be negative. As with any
event this size, we are all extremely
excited to see these changes through
and address any issues that may pop up.
It should be a fun, fun year.

Q: Volunteers have afforded The
Players to be the most charitable
sporting event in North East Florida,
how will the changes impact the giv-
ing arm of the tournament?

A: We expect everything to be bigger
and better in 2007, including our vol-
unteer force as well as our charitable
donation. The 2006 record of $2.7 mil-
lion should be surpassed if all goes well
this year. Our Chairman, Tim Tresca,
and the more than 1,700 volunteers
have put forth more effort on this year's
event than any in which I have previ-
ously been involved. We are thankful to
have what I consider the best volun-
teers on Tour.

Q: Finally, how is the City of
Jacksonville playing a bigger role in
this year's tournament?


The par-3 17th hole is always one of the most popular spectator areas during
Players Championship week. This year there will be increased seating available
and a grandstand above where players exit the green and make their way to the
tee box at 18.


A: As The Players Championship
grows in national stature and in specta-
tors visiting from around the globe, it is
important that the entire First Coast
area show support and pride and wel-
come these visitors. We will start at the
airport with banners, signs and our
countdown clock. We anticipate many
of these spectators will stay in the
downtown area, and it's important that
those spectators, once removed from


the tournament site and the beach, still
feel a sense of The Players activities
where they are staying. We expect The
Players downtown experience to grow
and draw spectators and locals alike to
the downtown environment. Details
are still being finalized; however, we
anticipate a great relationship with the
Jacksonville Suns and an area of down-
town earmarked for music, fireworks,
displays and fun.

FedExCup adds intrigue this season


by DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

When the Players Championship
rolls through Ponte Vedra this year,
there will be a new leaderboard to look
at other than the typical tournament
leaderboard.
With the FedExCup in its inaugural
year on the PGA Tour, competition will
be much tougher and the final standing
will be that much more important to
the players as they battle to qualify for a
season-ending "chase" for the Tour
championship.
Sound familiar? Maybe because the
PGA Tour's new points system was
adopted from the highly popular points
system used in NASCAR these days.
With golf looking to grow more in
popularity, what better way than to
mimic the number one spectator sport
in the country? And with The Players
among the five highest point-awarding
events on the tour, fans can expect
increased competition this year.
The system breaks the golf season
into two parts: the FedExCup and the
PGA Tour Fall Season.
The FedExCup will consist of accu-
mulating points over the course of the
first 33 weeks of the season, giving each
tournament more meaning than just
winning. The season started with the

Mercedes-Benz Championships in
Hawaii back in January and will end at
the Wyndham Championship in
Greensboro, N.C.
There are four levels of tournaments
of which the points are awarded to the
players.
First are the official PGA Tour events,
which will award 25,000 total points
per tournament. Winners of these
events will pick up 4,500 points, while
second will be awarded 2,700. Every
player in the top five will earn at least
1,000 points.
The second level consists of The
Masters tournament, The Players
Championship, the U.S. Open, the
British Open and the PGA Champion-
ship. Winners are awarded 4,950
points, 10 percent more than the regu-
lar events. The total points for these
events is 27,500 per tournament.
In the three World Golf
Championships events, points are
worth five percent the total from level
one. The winners of these events will be
awarded 4,725 points for their efforts.
There are 26,250 points available in
these events.
A fourth level is for additional events
(played opposite to the other tourna-
ments) and will offer 12,500 points for
the players. The winners of these
events can pick up an extra 2,250


points.
In the limited-field events during the
regular season (now that the Tour has
what is considered a "season"), points
will not be redistributed for the places
that do not play. For example, if only
40 players make the cut for a tourna-
ment, they will be awarded points
based on the individual position as a
typical full-field event would for those
first 40 positions.
To make things on the Tour more
exciting, the events immediately follow-
ing the regular season will be a four-
tournament playoff. Seeding for these
tournaments will be determined from
the points the players earned through-
out the regular season, meaning, like
NASCAR, the golfers will want to be
consistent throughout the season for a
higher seeding.
Once the seeding is set, the points
will also be reset, with the top player
starting at 100,000 points. The gap in
the points between a golfer and the
player ranked just below him changes
as the position gets higher.
While the top two seeds are 1,000
points apart, the fifth and sixth seeds
are just 250 points apart at the start of
playoff play.
The top 144 will play the first playoff
tournament, The Barclays, which will
now be worth 50,000 total points, dou-

ble what they were n the regular season.
The second playoff event, The Deutsche
Bank Championship, will be cut down
to a 120-player tournament. The BMW
Championship, the third playoff event,
will level off at 70 players. There will be
no cut for this tournament.
The final event, The Tour Champion-
ship, will pit the top 30 qualifiers who
will compete for the FedExCup with the
champion being crowned following the
tournament.
With this new points system, fans
will see more competition. With The
Players being one of the five higher-
paying points events, top notch golf
should be expected.
Once the playoffs are done and a
champ is crowned, the second part of
the PGA Tour season takes place in the
Tour Fall Series. These seven events will
act as qualifiers for the players who
ranked 31-125 during the regular season
and through the final playoff event.
These events will count as official wins
on the Tour and will set the field for the
2008 FedExCup.
So one thing is certain on the PGA
Tour this season the competition will
be hot throughout the year and get
tougher as the Tour moves into a play-
off. Afterwards, events are still impor-
tant to those who don't qualify, if they
want a shot next year.

Comments on Sawgrass's infamous 17th


From PGATOUR.com
Much has been written about the
infamous 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.
It's a fairly easy 137-yard island green
to reach for the best golfers in the
world unless the wind is blowing, or
rain is falling or The Players title is on
the line.
With no shortage of compelling
drama emanating from the 17th, one
of the most popular spectator venues
at Sawgrass during Players Champion-
ship week, what follows are remarks
from some of those very familiar with
the hole and its vagaries.
"It is like having a 3 o'clock appoint-
ment for a root canal. You're thinking
about it all morning and you feel bad
all day. You kind of know sooner or
later you've got to get to it."
Mark Calcavecchia

"It's gotten so big now because now
it's LIVE@17. Everybody on the
Internet is watching and there is
always a camera there.
"Whoever does make the big num-
ber on that hole is just overplayed on
every sports channel all over the
world. There's so much that goes with
that hole."
Chris DiMarco

"This is the most tranquil, peaceful
place you can be. When the weather is
beautiful, there's no place you'd rather
be.
"But when the weather is nasty, it
could be the worst place to be."
NBC cameraman John Boed-
deker, who is hoisted above the trees
behind the green in a tower to get a
view of 16, 17 and a portion of 18.

"The great thing about that hole is
there's always something happening.
In a typical golf tournament, you will
have many times where the leaders are
walking to their next shot on another
hole. We always have the luxury of
cutting the viewer to the 17th tee.
There's always drama there."
Tommy Roy, NBC's executive
producer
"When you play (17) on Tuesday
and Wednesday, it's a pretty easy hole,
a little flip 9-iron, no big deal.
"You get out there in the tourna-
ment, all of a sudden there's a pin
location that's tucked in the corner or
over a slope, and the green seems to
shrink up a little bit. You know you've
got to step up there and be committed.
"The hardest thing about that hole is
that you need to be committed on the
shot and you know you can't really hit
a poor shot and get away with it."
Tiger Woods
"I don't think any of us really
thought of the 17th hole. It just kind


of arrived. We just kept digging.
"Actually, I think my wife Alice
came out one day, looked at the area
and said let's just make it an island
green."
Course designer Pete Dye

"I rode up behind the tee one day
and watched a man pull out a dozen
new Titleists and promptly hit every
one of them in the water. He didn't
give it a second thought."


TPC Sawgrass superintendent
Fred Klauk on the approximately
150,000 balls that are annually hit into
the water on 17.

"I have so much respect for these
guys on Tour. You come down to the
last couple of holes here with it all on
the line and you have to hit a shot like
this (on 17). My hands are sweating at
home just watching on TV."

By the numbers: the famous 17th


1 The number of holes-in-one for
par made here in 25 years of The
Players. Fred Couples hit his first shot
in the water in the first round of the
1999 tournament, then re-teed and
flew a 9-iron into the hole for a par.
SOf the 25 winners of The Players
here, only two winners have made a
bogey on the 17th hole on Sunday,
Steve Elkington in 1991 and Fred Funk
in 2005. Of these winners, 13 have
made par, nine have made birdie and
two made bogeys.
SThe number of unique manned
cameras placed by NBC on the 17th
hole. A cameraman is lifted by a
crane120 feet into the air above the
trees from right of the 16th fairway
where his camera has a clear view of
16, 17 and 18. Another cameraman is
ferried to the island right of the 17th
green where he is marooned for
approximately eight hours to get reac-
tions from the 17th tee and operate
the super-slow-motion camera.
4 Depth, in feet, of water around
the island green.
4 The number of times per year
divers enter the pond to extract golf
balls. Divers are hired to enter the


water hazards on the course in January,
April, July and October, taking two
days each time. The TPC Sawgrass pays
I cents per ball, and the balls are
resold.
6 The number of holes-in-one
made here in 25 years of The Players.
They include: Brad Fabel, 1986, first
round; Brian Claar, 1991, third round;
Fred Couples, 1997, fourth round;
Joey Sindelar, 1999, first round; Paul
Azinger, 2000, third round; and
Miguel Angel Jimenez, 2002, first
round.
8 Including 2007, the number of
consecutive years where
PGATOUR.com has broadcast LIVE@17
during the first two rounds. In 2007,
all four rounds are scheduled to be
shown. Every shot by every player is
captured, with commentary by a rotat-
ing group of broadcasters and former
Tour players.
10 The number of cameras that
NBC utilizes on the hole during its
telecast, including a microscopic lens
imbedded in the lip of the tiny front.
NBC uses 42 cameras for the entire
tournament.
1 2 The score posted by Bob Tway


in the third round of the 2005 Players,
with winds blowing 25-30 mph.
Tway's tee shot flew the green, as did
his second shot. His third and fourth
shots hit on the front of the green and
spun back in the water. His fifth
attempt found the green, he three-
putted and totaled a 12. He went from
four strokes out of the lead at 7-under
par to 13 behind. Robert Gamez held
the record previously, an 11 (four balls
in the water) in the third round of the
1990 Players.
55 Square footage of the front
bunker, the smallest of 92 bunkers on
the course.
66 The score posted by Angelo
Spagnolo, a 31-year-old grocery store
manager from Fayette City, Pa., on
June 19, 1985, in "America's Worst
Avid Golfer" contest. Spagnolo hit 27
balls in the water from the tee box
and drop area. Rules officials finally
directed him to putt around the haz-
ard and down the narrow path that
leads to the green. Former PGA Tour
Commissioner Deane Beman dubbed
the path "Angelo's Alley." Spagnolo
shot 257 to "win" the title in the Golf
Digest-sponsored event.
75 Yardage to the center of the
green from the drop area.


10 1 The number of tee shots,
among 1,650 attempts (six percent),
that found the green during the Super
Bowl XXXIX media party here in
February 2005. The closest shot, to a
pin set back right, was 2 feet, 2 inches.
1 2 I Yardage from the middle of
the championship tee to the front of
green.
1 46 Yardage from the middle of
the championship tee to the back of
green.
3,9 1 2 Square footage of the
green. The course average is 4,5,00
square feet.

50,000 Amount of dirt, in
cubic yards, that was removed to cre-
ate the island green during construc-
tion of the course in the early 1980s.
120,000 Number of balls
hit in the water during the course of a
year, an average of more than three
balls per player based on the average
of 40,000 rounds played per year on
The Players Stadium Course. TPC
Sawgrass superintendent Fred Klauk
says that number is skewed because
some players hit as many as a dozen
balls into the water.

Hughes: Weiskopf was idol


Continued from page 15

asked to open the Tournament
Players Club at Craig Ranch, a $45-
million facility in Texas with course
architect Tom Weiskopf, he said he
almost fell out of his chair.
Recalled Hughes: "When I was a
sophomore in high school learning
how to take up the game because I
had no instruction and I'm walking
to a public course with no range, I
took this swing sequence out of
Golf Digest magazine and plastered
it on the back of my bedroom door.
"So for three years the only tour
pro I saw was Tom Weiskopf's pic-
ture. He always played the under-
dog to Jack Nicklaus and I love the
underdog in life. He was iconic to
me."
Hughes said leaving Cincinnati
was a sad departure, but he and his
family moved to Dallas in 2003 and
started the process of building
another TPC under visionary David
Craig.
When Davidson called with the
TPC at Sawgrass offer on
Thanksgiving 2005, Hughes said he
thought to himself: "I'm 49 years
old. I probably do have one more
move left in me."
"How do you say no to the
opportunity to run the flagship;


one of the more revered positions
in the golf industry, from an opera-
tional standpoint?" Hughes added.
"The biggest professional golf
tournament. The deepest field. The
biggest purse. I'm still pinching
myself."
Hughes and his family moved to
Ponte Vedra last August, just in
time for his children to start school
and try out for the Nease High golf
team.
Kelsey was a member of the girls
varsity squad last fall that placed
fourth in the state championship
tournament.
"Chipper" made it onto the varsi-
ty boys team as a freshman.
As for Hughes, he's been working
practically ever day since he arrived
to open the new clubhouse and
course in preparation for The
Players May 7-13.
"It's unbelievable how I got
here," Hughes said.
"When you are younger and
more immature, it's more about
you and your career. But when I
saw the difference the PGA Tour
makes in people's lives all over the
country, I thought there is a bigger
thing at work here.
"They call it the golf business but
we're all in the people business at
the end of the day."

Underground air blowers


help TPC battle weather


by ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
Of all the work done on the
Stadium Course at Sawgrass
since the last Players Champ-
ionship, the most radical
involves installation of the
SubAir System which will
enable officials to control the
amount of moisture on greens.
The SubAir System, made
famous at Augusta National,
allows the putting surfaces to
be dried after a rainstorm, or
left intentionally moist to hold
the ball better on approach
shots. It's all computer-activat-
ed by Sawgrass course superin-
tendent Fred Klauk and offers a
degree of control TPC officials
have longed for.
In the past, the course had to
be over-seeded with rye grass as
an insurance policy against
March rain. That meant softer,
slower greens which proved dif-
ficult to read.
Thanks to the new under-
ground blowers, however, put-
ting will be challenging in
almost any weather conditions.


Last summer's restoration of
the course also included truck-
ing in 68,000 tons of sand as
fairways and greens were
redone. While the SubAir
mechanical system will help
keep putting surfaces in prime
condition, so too will a new
strain of MiniVerde Ultra Dwarf
Bermuda grass that was deliv-
ered from a sod farm in south-
ern Georgia.

The SubAir System
allows putting sur-
faces to be dried
after a rainstorm or
left intentionally
moist to hold the ball
better.

The grass makes greens hard-
er to hold, meaning errant
shots are more likely to roll off
into difficult spots made even
more treacherous because 200
new oak, palm and pine trees
have been planted.


All of the design work was
undertaken to ensure The
Players is contested in major-
championship scoring condi-
tions.
"This will make the course
play hard and fast, which is
how it was intended to be for
the best players in the world,"
said Brian Goin, executive
director of The Players
Championship.
The SubAir System is one of
many changes for this year's
tournament. Total cost of the
renovation is about $60 mil-
lion, money that will be con-
sidered well-spent if The Players
is able to separate itself from
every other event on the sched-
ule.
First, of course, is the move
from late March to May, which
means more daylight and possi-
bly less rain. Next was shorten-
ing the official name from "The
Players Championship" to "The
Players." Kind of puts the tour-
nament right in line with "The

Masters," "the Open" and the "PGA."
While tour pros have often referred to
the Players as golf's unofficial fifth
major, organizers hope the changes will
result in a dropping of the "unofficial"
part.
Reaction to the move from March has
been positive. "It was always too early. I
think it's in the right slot now," said
Ernie Els. "I'm excited about the May
date. The weather's hotter, and the
course should play more like a big-time
golf event," said Jim Furyk.
What golfers will encounter in 2007
differs radically from what Pete Dye
began working on in the late 1970s.
Historians will recall former PGA Tour
commissioner Deane Beman sum-
moned Dye to a swamp on the west side
of A1A in Ponte Vedra Beach and
requested a design that would prove dif-
ficult to play, friendly for spectators and
different from anything else.
Dye's creation has been lauded, derid-
ed, marveled at, cursed and now, finally,
refurbished with the 81-year-old archi-
tect overseeing construction that began
last spring.
Drainage had always been a problem
and March's wet conditions seemed to
put an exclamation point on the issue.
Numerous interruptions of play and


three Monday finishes in the past six
years, not to mention implementation
of the lift, clean and place rule as a result
of muddy balls, convinced officials that
if the event was ever going to achieve
major status changes had to be made.
The most significant of those was
installation of the underground blowers
to the tune of about $19,000 per hole,
but Dye tweaked the course above
ground as well. Using ShotLink data and
his own feel for the Stadium Course,
Dye added tee boxes to the par-4 first,
par-3 eighth, par-5 11th, par-4 14th,
par-5 16th and par-4 18th holes. The tee
boxes extend the holes by 15 to 25 yards
each.
Interestingly, the designer didn't opt
for the go-to choice that many archi-
tects employ today as a means of mak-
ing things more challenging dramat-
ically lengthening the course. Only
about 122 yards were added to the tract,
making it 7,215 in its new configura-
tion, with officials given the flexibility
of adding another 100 yards or so for
the tournament. Golfers won't find rad-
ical new layouts; decisions were made to
maintain the integrity of Dye's original
work.
Other subtle changes include a new
green at the par-4 12th and construction
of three aiming bunkers on the right
side of the seventh fairway.
Additionally, some of the large specta-
tor mounds (Tiger Woods has jokingly
referred to them as "elephant burial
grounds") have been reshaped to allow
access for more fans.

Workers tore up the world famous island green at 17 to install underground
blowers and a new strain of Bermuda grass on the putting surface.


While the 17th has traditionally
proved to be the most popular in terms
of spectator appeal, more space for seat-
ing has been added surrounding the


16th, 17th and 18th holes. Grandstands
have been erected above the area where
players exit the 17th green and walk to
the 18th tee.

The Beaches Leader, Ponte Vedra Leader


Candid memoir shaves no strokes


by REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST


annals of the PGA
from its beginning,
golf fans probably
would not find a
more controversial, colorful
and unpredictable champion
than John Daly.
His up-and-down career has
seldom been equaled in terms
of interest.
Now, Daly tells all in the
best-selling book "My Life In
& Out of the Rough."
A hard drinker, a hard gam-
bler and a hard man with
matrimony (four wives),
could mark some men, let
alone a professional golfer, as
a failure in the public's eye.
Instead, by virtue of his
honesty and repeated
atteml)ts at comebacks, l)aly's
41 years of living have made
him one of the most popular
golfers to ever to swing a
club.
The book's subhead, "The
Truth Beliind All 'Ihat Bull****
You Think You Know About
Me" is an attention grabber
to say the least.
Daly's self-admitted addi-
tions to alcohol, gambling,
sex and chocolate, which,
added to his weight struggles,
might be a shocker, but those
battles also show him to be a
man who has repeatedly over-
come his indulgences to
climb the mountain of suc-
cess in his profession.
Few on the PGA Tour have
equalled Big John's color and
controversy while being tor-
tured at times by personal
tragedy and a love-hate rela-
tionship with his father,
whose alcoholism, Daly said
made his early life almost
unbearable.
It didn't teach him the evils
of the demon, though, and
his later life, always using
drink (lack Daniels, especially)
furthered the golfer's self-
destructive drive.
Daly's obsession with slot
machines and an unquench-
able thirst for sex conflicted
with his determination to be
one of the best golfers in the
business; one who was trying
to live up to the success of
boyhood idol Jack Nicklaus.
The Golden Bear became
one of Daly's closest admirers,
along with Fuzzy Zoeller.
Daly made a name for him-
self on the PGA Tour with


N EWI0RK 1,,ES BESTSE L 1 A111)


with GLEN WAGGONER


prodigious drives that not
only awed the fans, but his
PGA rivals as well.
He won golf's driving dis-
tance crown a record-setting
11 times and was named the
1990 PGA Tour rookie of the
year.
Daly followed that up by
winning the PGA
Championship a year later.
But it was winning the
British Open in 1995 that for-
ever put Big John in the strat-


osphere of golf immortality
and brought him the acclaim
he craved badly.
All of this was done while
battling demons of the bottle,
with women, and trying to
pay off monumental debts
owed to casinos.
If his own indiscretions
weren't enough, there was the
disgrace of his wife, Sherri
Miller, and her parents being
indicted on federal charges of
laundering more than $1.2


million for illegal drug and
Gambling operations.
Daly's father-in-law, Alvis
Miller, pled guilty to conspir-
acy to launder money and the
structuring of financial trans-
actions to avoid federal
reporting requirements.
For that Miller was sen-
tenced to two and a half years
in prison. As the book went
to press, Miller was still in
jail.
Daly's mother-in-law, Billie,


ir.i


pled also pled guilty and
served five months behind
bars. Two months later,
Sherrie pled to one count and
was given five months. An
appeal failed and Daly's wife
began serving her sentence.
Daly's four children from
four marriages include a pair
of girls and two boys, one of
them, Austin, adopted.
Austin's biological father,
who Daly claims in the book
"had never taken much inter-
est in him," filed to get tem-
porary custody when Sherrie
went to prison.
Daly's road back started
when he won the BMW in
2001, his first victory since
the British in 1995.
The most important victory
besides the Open, he says,
came at the Buick Invitational
in 2004.
Daly says his life is at last
better.
While Daly says he couldn't
begin to name and thank all
the friends who stood by him
during terrible times, one
especially stands out.
"Where would I be today
without the inspiration and
example of my childhood
idol, Jack Nickalus? he
writes.
"Thanks Jack for your many
words of support and encour-
agement over the years."
Daly also mentions his
older brother, Jamie, with
whom he shared countless
hours of play when they were
younger back in Arkansas.
"And whenever I was in
trouble ... superstars like Tom
Watson, Arnold Palmer and
Greg Norman were always
among the first to call me
and tell me to hang in there."
Above all, Daly remembers
the simple advice he received
from his mother, who once
said, "Champions come from
the heart."
"My Life In & Out of the
Rough" (Harper, $13.95) was
co-written by Glen Waggoner,
executive editor of ESPN
Books.
Said Daly about Waggoner:
"His greatest challenge in
sports journalism was trans-
lating my recollections, rants,
and raucous ramblings into
passable English.
"If he pulled it off and
you'll be the judge of that -
it's probably because he hails
originally from Texas. Or, as
we like to call it back home,
Southwestern Arkansas."
