The Jacksonville Port Authority is inter-
ested in taking over operations for the
Mayport ferry, but a $738,000 annual
shortfall would still be a concern, accord-
ing to Jacksonville Mayoi John Peyton's
Last week, Florida. Gov. Charlie Crist
signed a $71.5 billion budget that does
not include a $396,000 line item appro-
priation for the ferry service between the
Beaches and Fort George island. The line
item had been proposed by area legisla-
tors to help cover operational shortfalls,
but the funding was vetoed by Crist.
It costs about $1.8 million annually to
operate the ferry, which is managed by a
private company, Hornblower, whose
contract expires in September, according

"I desperately need vol-

said he needs a minimum
of 30 volunteers to success-

For an Eagle Scout proj-
ect to be successful, it has
to be original and also be
something that benefits
the community, he said.
"I love Atlantic Beach, so
I decided to help them
with the planting because I
know how important the
sea oats are to the beach,",
said Marco, who has been
in scouting since he was 8.
"The beach is a part of my
daily life: football with

to the county.
Revenue from passenger fares totals
approximately $1.1 million, leaving a
nearly $800,000 gap that the county has
covered, mayoral spokesman Susie Wiles
said. Next year costs are expected to be
$$2.1 million with more than $1 million
in subsidy needed, Wiles said.
With a $75 million shortfall anticipated
in the county coffers next year, however,
efforts are being made to trim county
budgets. And the governor's veto means
no help from the state, Wiles said.
Wiles said the Jacksonville Port
Authority approached the.mayor's office
earlier this year about taking over respon-
sibility for the ferry. She said, though,

Marco said volunteers

Getting into scouting
wasn't Marco's idea, at least
at the outset.
"My mom and dad were
talking to my best friend's
mom, and the three of
them went behind my
friend Matthew Grossberg
and my back and signed us
up," he said of his start in
scouting. "We were mad at
first because other kids
would make fun of us, but
soon realized it was a fun
thing to be part, of. We
both moved up in the
ranks as quickly as possi-
ble, and now I have finally
completed all require-

need is for this project to

Interlocal agreement
amendments eyed;
cooperation will be
better, county says

Facing a $75 million shortfall
next year due to pending property
tax changes, the county is looking
at ways to trim costs and that
means the Beaches will feel the
Susie Wiles, spokesman for
Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton,
said in a telephone interview
Tuesday that the Beaches can expect
a "direct hit" from county cuts.
It has been suggested that the
interlocal agreements that govern
the financial relationship of the
county and the Beachescities could
even get a new look, Wiles said.
"One thing tee'd up is a new look
at the interlocal agreement," Wiles
said. She said there has been a "low
level conversation about the fair-
ness of the pact" for some time at
Jacksonville City Hall.
"This [a county revenue shortfall]
will ramp up the volume on that
conversation," Wiles predicted.
Asked about the legality of open-
ing up a pact for review without the
assent of the Beach cities, she said
in a subsequent interview that a
check with the county's general
counsel made matters less clear
about modifying the agreement.
Apparently the pact is a settle-

ment in perpetuity, Wiles said, and
there is debate about whether such
a settlement is legally defensible.
The county's general counsel does
not think so, she said.
No matter What, though, any
legal wrangling would not permit
the county to look at eliminating
some of its expenses related to the
Beaches in time to present the fiscal
year 2007-2008 budget to council
this summer, Wiles said.
"What we want to do it work
together to look at reducing the
expense burdens for general govern-
ment," Wiles said. For example, she
said, Atlantic Beach does not pay a
tipping fee to the county for use of
the county landfill, while it charges
residents a garbage fee and "that
might get brought up."
Reminded that the county land-
fill is a county asset and the county
provides garbage collection and
dumping in the landfill as part of
the services paid for by ad valorem
taxes, Wiles said there may be
things contained in the interlocal
agreement that the county govern-
ment can no longer afford to sup-

A portion of the Selva Marina Country
Club property may be "contaminated",
according to the state Department of
Environmental Protection.
"Our understanding is that the DCA is
ok with it [the amendment]," said
Atlantic Beach City Manager Jim Hanson.
The nature and scope of the contami-
nation was not detailed. Hanson said a
soil analysis will be done and might reveal
a problem such as herbicides that would
then be cleaned up with no impact on the
surrounding area.
The DCA reported the comments

The City of Atlantic Beach transmitted
an amendment to amend the city's future
land use map, changing a portion of the
golf course from recreation and open
space to residential and low density use.
A contamination finding does not
block development, city officials said. The
city is still waiting to hear from DCA on a
separate rezoning amendment.

A page of the 1996 amendment to the interlocal agreement between the
county and the City of jacksonville Beach details what the county will pay
the city for lifeguards to patrol the beach. County officials, facing state
property tax reforms, have said they may not have the means to support
some items in the agreement. "It's a lousy time to be local government in
the state of Florida whether you're a Beaches government or county gov-
ernment," Jacksonville Mayoral spokesman Susie Wiles said this week.

JTA plans

Transit talks conducted last
week in Jacksonville Beach dis-
cussed the concerns facing rid-
ers of a potential bus route link-
ing the Beaches to portions of
northern St. Johns County.
Fred Haley, service planning
manager of the JTA, facilitated
the workshop to solicit public
input and gauge the communi-
ty's interest in plans to develop
a new route running along A1A
into Ponte Vedra Beach.
"The purpose of this is to give
people an idea of what is going
on and give us some thoughts
on what ideas will be good and
what is not working," Haley
said. "If it is not working this
will help us make the adjust-
ments to be better serving."
Some of the service options
include whether riders preferred
to utilize express service with no

long-awaited bus route into Ponte Vedra community

stops between major hubs and
major destinations such as
downtown or an office park or
scheduled routes which operate
on regular service schedules.
Neighborhood shuttles or
other small bus services feeding
into other established bus routes
and ride requests for bus service
which deviate from a route for
"dial a ride" service were other

Haley stressed that the plan-
ning session was "not a contin-
uation" of past transportation
meetings that focused on the
need to add bus service to
accommodate employees at sev-
eral large businesses along the

get the public's thoughts on
this, especially if there are spe-

employers to gauge ridership
was announced at that meeting,
and Oliasami said the results of
that survey will be used to deter-

be negotiated."
Oliasami, former president of
the Ponte Vedra Beach Chamber
of Commerce, has said that bus
runs could help fill some of the
jobs at the Marriott and other
businesses in Ponte Vedra.
Employees at Baptist Medical
center could also benefit from
the new routes. Hospital admin-
istrator Mark Slyter has pushed
for an increase in public trans-
portation to help shuttle staffers
living west of the Intracoastal
Waterway to work.
In recent years, apartment
buildings, trailer parks and
other lower-cost housing has
been lost at the Beaches, where
demand has increased develop-
ment and prices.
Oliasami said escalating gas
prices also point to the need for
a bus route south of the Duval
County line.

Chiles and funding became
the county's responsibility.
Two vessels are available to
carry vehicles across the
water, but only one is in oper-

awards received by the FMS PTSA at the Duval County Council
of PTAs annual Presidents & Principals Luncheon on May 17.
The Fletcher Middle School PTSA was honored as the PTA of
the Year and the Largest Middle School Membership for all mid-
dle schools in Duval County. With a total membership of 1,100
for the 2006-07 school year, Fletcher Middle was the only mid-
dle school to have membership reach over 1,000. The school
enrollment is approximately 1,295 students. According to
Arlington, "Winning these awards is testimony to the strength of
a community-based, neighborhood school. Many people move
their children to magnet schools during their middle and high
school years looking for a better educational environment. But
right here at the beach, Fletcher Middle School offers a wonder-
ful combination of an outstanding faculty, good location, excel-
lent curriculum and highly involved families all working together
for a very successful school.

.The interlocal agreement
was adopted in 1982 to settle
a 1979 lawsuit, brought by the
Beach cities and the town of
Baldwin against the county.
Since 1968, the first year of

consolidation, questions over
the county's services to the
Beaches have been an issue.
To settle concerns about dou-
ble taxation, Atlantic Beach
filed suit against the county in
1993, resulting in a 1996
amendment to the original
interlocal pact. The amended
agreement calls for a millage
rate differential and other
relief for the Beach cities.
Jacksonville City Councildr
Art Graham, who represents

the : Beaches on the
Jacksonville City Council, said
that he has not heard of any
calls for reopening the inter-
local agreement, but said
some'of the items in the pact
might be questioned in tight
budget times. He said he
expects both sides would have
to be interested before such a
review could occur, however.
As part of the belt tighten-
ing at Jacksonville City Hall,
Mayor John Peyton has direct-

ed city agencies to prepare to
trim 10 percent in costs from
the budgets they are currently
preparing for the fiscal year
that begins Oct. 1.

Cuts in park maintenance,
library operations and road
resurfacing will directly
impact the Beaches, she said.

Public service groups may lose $

contributions to not-for-profit
groups will hurt the Beaches,
county officials said this week.
Public service grants totalling
$14 million will be eliminated
as part of a county effort to
address a $75 million shortfall
in county coffers next year that
is projected due to state proper-
ty tax reform.
Mayoral Spokesman Susie
Wiles said that among the
groups feeling the pain will be
Mission House, which provides
meals and medical services to
the needy at the Beaches. The
Shetter Avenue-based organiza-
tion had requested $25,000 for
case management. Instead of
that or even the $17,541 it got
from the county last year,

Mission House will likely get
.nothing this year, Wiles said.
Letters were mailed to all
public service groups last
Thursday, detailing the cuts.
"Along with every county in
the state, Duval County is
awaiting the outcome of a spe-
cial session of the Florida
Legislature on property tax
reform, scheduled to take place
June 12-22. If passed, the pro-
posals currently under consid-'
eration would have a devastat-
ing effect on Jacksonville's
budget and affect city opera-
tions across the board. It is esti-
mated that the shortfall created
in our FY 07/08 budget by ris-
ing costs and this projected
reduction in revenue could be
as much as $75 million," the
letter states.

The Leader's Opinion

Effective fixes

to roads are

possible now

That is the key question for many drivers snarled in
traffic on A1A who are told that help is coming.
In a recent presentation on road projects planned for
the area in the next five years, a couple of obvious solu-
tions were part of the list.
A traffic signal at 22nd Avenue South is to be removed
by the state as it is too close to another signal one block
That would seem to be an accurate conclusion. Or, to
put it more simply, Duh, you think so?
The proximity of the two lights is an ongoing problem.
Removing one is common sense. So it is unclear why the
project is not scheduled for immediate completion,
instead of "in the future."
There are several road projects that could and should
- be done now to significantly improve traffic flow at the
Beaches. It should not take a team of road engineers to get
them done.
1. Ban all westbound traffic on Beach Boulevard from
turning south onto 15th Street South. That easy step will
eliminate much of the current afternoon traffic snarl at
Penman Road and Beach Boulevard. Eastbound drivers on
Beach Boulevard will have an easier time of it, there will
be a longer turn lane available and east-bound through
traffic will not back up as much.
2. One way or another, find a way to create a dedicated
turn lane on 9th Street South at the avenue leading into
Baptist Medical Center Beaches. Without that space,
through traffic on 9th Street will continue to be nearly an
oxymoronic phrase.. As an alternative through street to
3rd Street, 9th Street must not be allowed to bottleneck as
it does.
3. Push state plans for a traffic light at 3rd Street and
Osceola Avenue forward as it will offer many. benefits,
including reduced traffic on interior neighborhood
byways, such as Sandra Drive.
4. Better synchronize the traffic signals along A1A, It
gets talked about every election year and then just as
quickly shoved to the back burner.
Work that can easily help everyone now should be
done now.

New sidewalk in AB good for kids

To the editor: from Atlantic Beach
I would like to thank the Elementary on the smooth,

City of Atlantic Beach for
installing the new sidewalk

Coverage of arts in PV is great

To the editor:
We greatly appreciate the cov-
erage of the arts presentation we
made to the Ponte Vedra
Coalition earlier this week.
Please thank David Levin for
us... he covered the story beau-
tifully. Expanding and growing
the arts are a critical part of
maintaining and improving our
quality of life throughout St.
Johns County. Aspects such as
"Arts in Schools", "Art in Public
Places", Live Performances, as
well as the positive economic
impact and eco-friendly benefits
of cultural tourism are but a few
of the reasons we need to unite
as one community and demand
more support for the arts from
our elected officials.
It is ludicrous that of the

$158MM in funding over the
past four years paid for with St.
Johns County taxpayer dollars
in the "Culture and Recreation"
service area, less than $300K
was dedicated to cultural ele-
One example (economic
impact of the arts) can be found
in the reports just released by
Americans for the Arts, the
nation's leading advocacy
organization in Washington,
We could use all the help we
can get. We will happily do
whatever it takes to get the
word out.

Can't stand cry babies at work

rhe Wall Street Journal arti-
cle nearly brought me to
tears: Crying has become
acceptable in the workplace.
A growing number of work-
ers, especially those in their 20s
and 30s, no longer see crying at
work as a bad thing. They think
it's bad to conceal their emo-
Jean Twenge, ,a professor at
San Diego State University,.said
they were raised by parents
who encouraged them to
express their feelings -- parents
who continually told them
how smart and talented and
perfect they are.
Now that these runts,are in
the workplace -- now that
they're in reality they can't
handle the pressure,. Their
meany bosses -- greedy fellows
who care about turning profits -
are demanding and critical.
No wonder everybody is crying.
One woman -- an accountant
in her early 30s -- broke into
tears when her boss asked her
to install software on her com-
puter. When the boss asked her
why she was blubbering, the
xoman said, "You scare me!" .
It's not just womienwho are
trying Thouglhthey' ~rit mle
likely to cry than men, it has
become more socially accept-
able for both men and women .
to cry, according to Stephanie
Shields, a Penn State psycholo-
gy professor.
A female communications
specialist in Boston gave an
example. She said a male co-
worker in his 20s had to fight
"back tears while telling her
about a chewing-out he'd got-'
ten from a colleague." She said
that a guy less in touch with his
feelings might have expressed
anger or pounded the table.
How Neanderthal that would


have been.
Some bosses are getting in
touch with their feelings, too. A
CEO of a credit-counseling
service said he can't expect his
employees to be compassionate
and caring with clients, then,
turn off their feelings like a
switch. He said he knows how
upsetting things can get. If they
cry, he said, there is "no apolo-
gy needed."
I'll tell you what is needed:
some backbone.'We've gotten:
way :too sensitive --'way. too0'

and weaknesses. We've gone
Here's another softy trend.
Napping is now acceptable in
the workplace. Now I'm a big
proponent of napping. It defi-
nitely boosts my productivity.
But when I used to work in a
corporate office, I napped the
way an effective employee is
supposed to.
I took a late lunch and snuck
out to my car. I flipped on some
classical music and reclined the
seat. I had some.incredible naps
in the parking garage and
nobody knew about it but me.

But today's napping employ-

in large napping rooms.
Employees are curling up with.
the company dog -- a dog
makes them feel happy -- for a
nice snooze. Nobody is embar-
rassed about it.
Nobody is embarrassed about
anything anymore.
Look, there is a time and a
place for everything. There is a
time and a place for a man to
nap. There is a time and a place
for a man to cry: the birth of his
child, the death of a loved one
and when a late pass results in
his team winning the Super
There is a time and a place for
a man to reveal his emotions,

more, and that is why I worry.

More letters to the editor:

Homeless prove our institutions have failed all of us

To the editor:
Read your coverage of the
homeless discussion at
St.Paul's Catholic Church --
very well done.
The people on the panel
seemed liked caricatures from
a Theodore Dalrymple essay
on the "homeless". It's amaz-
ing that certain people will
pass themselves off as com-

passionate, civilized,and eru-
dite, all the while benefiting
from a created problem.
I wonder how long those
on the panel, social workers,
and other public figures
would endure what business
owners and new residents of
downtown Jax Beach have
had to from those wretches
called the homeless? Can't

arrest our. way out of this
problem..what poppycock. To
paraphrase Newt Gingrich,
our institutions have failed
us. All they know is how to
ask for more money to keep
on providing the same failed
services and policies.

Flaws in 35' height law are clear to designers in JB

To the editor:
A few months ago I wrote a
"Letter to the Editor" called the
"Jacksonville Beach FLAWED
35' height amendment". In
that letter I explained how that
35' height restriction effected
continued progress in the
Downtown Business District,
since a property owner could
not make a profit being limited
to 35' height which did not
give them room for retail,

parking and office space'.
I now read in the paper a
story about The Planner, a
design expert that Jacksonville
Beach has hired to help the
city develop a vision for the
Downtown Business District.
He said; "The city should
reconsider the 35' building
cap. He went on to say; "That a
lot of great buildings come in
at 50'.
Now maybe the same

GROUP who came up with the
FLAWED 35' height amend-
ment could use their energy to
have that 35' restriction
amended to allow a 50' height
in the Downtown Business
District so that the city could
continue the progress that was
started before that went into

Dean Blue's loss at Landrum Middle to be felt by many

Dean Blue's loss at Landrum

Middle School aged children.

celebrating but there will be a
huge void for children 11 to
I was Kelvin Blue's secretary
for several years and I observed
his interactions with the chil-
dren of this community first
hand. He is, in my opinion
irreplaceable. In a world where
everything is measured in
money or metrics he is the
great intangible. How do you

measure or put value on, turn-
ing a child's life around, taking
young people destined for suc-
cess and encouraging them to
an even higher level, giving a
student a sense of self-worth,
instilling an attitude of pride
and respect, of caring and
service done with courtesy and
a smile or teaching that as
great as winning is, how you
win is more important.
How do we measure the life
long impact on our young peo-
ple who have had as a mentor
a man who always puts the
needs of others before himself

or the lessons they have
learned about duty to family,
community and country.
There is no way to measure
these things which are Dean
We are all thankful for the
years we had him as part of our

School Children in their most
formative years. Dean Blue is
beyond special. Thinking of

letter word-

RAIN is best

Have you noticed how
clean all the cars have
been looking around
Jacksonville lately? rlhat's
because prior to the lousy
drought of 2007, all it took to
make it rain was washing your
car! It no longer works!
Maybe a downpour would
come if we all left our sun roofs
open tonight! That one
worked on an Acura I owned
back in the 90s. Next morning
I opened the doors and gallons
and gallons of water came
rushing out, along with some
weird guy in a Speedo!
A solemn vow, I will never
complain about rain again. Let
it pour so much that the only
thing dry are the martinis in
Ponte Vedra!
Supposedly a downed power
line started the first fire in the
Okefenokee near Waycross.
Since then a few others have
been caused by lightning
strikes! Some however have
been accidental or deliberate
arson. The one near 1-95 at the
Duval, Nassau line was report-
edly ignited by a camp fire that
hadn't been put out complete-
ly. What the heck was some-
body camping out in the dry
brush for? Guess they must
have liked sleeping under the
smoggy stars, with the smell of
smoke coming from Easterly
winds. In a text message to the
geniuses who just left it smol-
dering', I would; write 'GAHS!
That -politely ,stands for Get;.AA
Hotel Stupid! .
Some days the smell of
smoke has been horrible.. I
don't know how folks who go
outside for a cigarette break
can tell the difference. Hey,
save your Marlboros and just
breathe. Blow smoke rings,
knock yourself out!
But you know what, it would
be so much worse without the
brave men and women fight-
ing those fires in the great
states of Florida and Georgia,
There are two firefighters that I
grew up with, who I would like
to personally salute right now.
First my good friend Ricky
Ford, former drummer in my
high school garage band
named the Rickets! Hey we
didn't know that was a disease.
Also my kid cousin, and my
Uncle Don's pride and joy,
Tommy! Those two guys have
put more fires out than Paris
Hilton's agent!
Ladies and gentlemen, Ricky,
Tommy and every other man
and woman fighting to con-
tain those fires are the greatest.
Forget Jordin and Blake, these
are the true American Idols.

Washburn would much rather

be cooking than washing dishes

Ed Washburn, who grew
up in Rochester, N.Y.,
has been cooking since
he was 10 years old.
As a child, he and his sib-
lings used to stay with their
grandmother during the
summer in a small town in
upstate New York.
His family owned a-general
store in.Greenwood, N.Y.,
Sand Washburn's grandmoth-
er lived in a house adjacent
to the store.
Washburn's grandma was a
"great cook" who made
"bread and other good
things," he recalled.
Cooking with his grand-
mother appealed to
Washburn because of two
1. He "could experiment."
2. If he helped with the
cooking, he didn't have to
help wash the dishes. Even
today Washburn says he still
"hates to clean up."
Washburn does the majori-
ty of the cooking for he and
his wife, Sally, who live west
of the intracoastal. He works
for Honeywell at the Marine
base on Blount Island and
Sally works for SunTrust
Washburn's workday ends
by mid-afternoon, which
gives him ample time to pre-
pare the couple's dinner. He
makes most dishes from
scratch and even bakes bread
the old-fashioned way -
without a bread machine.
Washburn said he cooks
"pretty much anything."
Part of the fun of cooking,
he says, is making his "own
concoctions" by changing
recipes he likes and by
adding different ingredients
and seasonings.
The Washburns raised six
children and have 11 grand-
children and one great-
grandchild. So, he is used to
cooking for a large number
of people. Dinner parties or

dinners for church groups
are no problem for him.
The couple has been active
for 12 years with Education
First, an educational pro-
gram that brings high-
school-age students to the
area for a month during the
The students work on con-
versational English and learn
about American culture and
history while they are here,
said Washburn.
The Washburns have host-
ed some of the students for.
their month-long stay. One
summer, Washburn cooked
a different meal every day
for almost a month.
Since he says he cooks
"pretty much anything" and
bakes, too, it was easy for
him to choose recipes from
his family's favorite dishes to
meet the challenge.
One of Sally Washburn's
favorite dishes is her hus-
band's Baked Macaroni and
The casserole is made with
four different cheeses and
baked until golden brown.
Chocolate Chip Poundcake
is one of Washburn's most
popular desserts. Recently,
he entered the recipe in cake
baking contest. The recipe is
adapted from a Southern
Living recipe, and Washburn
likes it for its versatility.
By changing the cake mix
and some of the other ingre-
dients the cake can be
chocolate, strawberry, or
lemon flavored.
Last Christmas, Washburn
made 20 of his Chocolate
Chip Pound Cakes to give to
his employees. It took two
nights of baking, 10 cakes
each night, he said.

Billboard tribute to

Watkins on 1-295

An outdoor billboard on
Interstate 295 in Jacksonville
pays homage to Marine Cpl.
Joshua Watkins, one of the
city's Iraq War dead.
Watkins, a Jacksonville
native and a 1999 Nease High
School graduate, was killed by a
sniper's bullet last October in
He was 25.
Since January, a Clear
Channel billboard on Interstate
295 between Commonwealth
Avenue and Pritchard Road
greets motorists traveling north
with this message: "Land of the
Free Because of the Brave."
The billboard features a color
image of Watkins in his dress
blue uniform and white cap.
SIt's the same photo the
Marine Corps released of
Watkins on Oct. 21, 2006, the
day he was mortally wounded
outside Fallujah, Iraq.
Clear Channel Outdoor has
run the 14-by-48-foot billboard,
the company's largest size, as a
public service since December.
"It's a reminder that we have
a a number of favorite sons
fighting over there," Clear
Channel spokesman Rod
Firestone said Tuesday.
Firestone said the billboard
was conceived by a former fit-
ness trainer at Epping Forest
who knew Watkins when the
Marine was a lifeguard at the
yacht club.
Watkins, the only child of a
single mother, was one of five
Marines who had volunteered
to follow a trip wire leading to
an improvised explosive device,
or IED, on the day he died.
His unit was patrolling an
infamous, six-lane highway
near Fallujah, a corridor of
Death whose lanes reportedl'
"aie blackened from roadside
bomb blasts."
When he was hit, Watkins
had an hour left on his shift.

completing his second tour of

home," Watkins' mother, Amy
Vasquez said.

ond deployment. He didn't

ing are helping Vasquez cope
with the loss of her son, who
studied construction manage-
ment for three years at the
University of North Florida
before enlisting in the Marines
at age 22.
"I talk about Josh's story and
keep it politically neutral,"

Watkins: UNF endowed scholarship

Cont. from A-6
Iraq, Watkins had turned in
most of his gear, including the
bulletproof side panels on his
body armor, his mother said.
He was in one of four
Humvees that had encircled a
suspected IED when the call
was given for volunteers to step
forward and follow the wire.
Watkins was tracking the IED
when a sniper's round penetrat-
ed one side of his Kevlar vest.
He died later that day at a
trauma hospital outside
Baghdad, where he had been
airlifted with internal injuries

from the stomach wound.
"Josh was the only one shot
on the mission," Vasquez told
the crowd on Monday, thank-
ing all veterans who had put
themselves in the line of fire in
previous wars.
"I'm grateful to the city of
Jacksonville for this memorial
so that my son's memory will
not die."
An endowed scholarship
fund in Watkins' name at UNF
has topped the $60,000 mark.
When it reaches $100,000, the
state will add another $50,000
to the account, Vasquez said.

To be eligible for the scholar-
ship, a UNF student must have
some tie to the military.
"Josh would have graduated
in January 2008," added
Vasquez, who plans to be on
hand when UNF awards the
first Cpl. Joshua C. Watkins
Scholarship this fall.
"That's what I'm waiting for.
We're trying to make it avail-
able to wide variety of students,
including ROTC. They're our
future leaders."

scholarship fund, call the UNF
Foundation at 620-2264.

Julie Wright, program man-
ager for the St. Johns County
Council on Aging (COA), said
that senior programs, formerly
held only Tuesdays and
Thursday in Ponte Vedra, will
eventually extend to five days
a week at the Landrum Lane
facility, which opened May 8.
"It's exciting to think about
programming five days a
week, and eventually expand-

nighttime events," said

UF Tech Connect seeks experienced

hi-tech entrepreneurs, investors

Just because you live at the -, ( ,.. -
Beaches doesn't mean you can't .- i-:
be involved in a high tech busi- .
ness in fact if you are an experi-
enced technology entrepreneur
itching to get involved, the UF
Tech Connect team will be V .---
happy to team with you to iden-
tifv a technology or suite of
technologies to start your next
company. '
"in Florida there's about $1.5
billion worth of research and '
just over $500 million of that is .' "
right here at LiF, so we have a
solid reservoir of technologies
that are well suited for startup
companies." said lane Muir,
director of UF Tech Connect and
associate director of UF Office of
Technology Licensing.
"Ve've already identified the
technologies and now we're
looking for experienced high-
tech entrepreneurs and investors
to turn these ideas into compa-
nies," she said. "We have a
plethora of technology but a '
shortage of entrepreneurs and
money, whereas the Beaches
boast a ton of experienced entre- UF TechConnect serves as
preneurs and investors but not new business opportunities
much technology coming out ot and UF Tech Connect Coo
the area." That makes the
UF-Beaches team a good one.
"Being an entrepreneur is kind of in your blood." Muir said.
"Many entrepreneurs think it's cool to play golf and sit on the
beach, but we've found that after a year or so they realize it's
not nearly as much fun as starting a company!"
If you're one of these entrepreneurs, here's how the process
works. First, LF Tech Connect staff will interview you to find
out about your background so they can suggest technologies
that may be of most interest to you.
"Let's say, for example, you have a software background,"
Muir said. "We would go through our database and look at
what we've identified as potential technologies that could be
the basis for a startup company in the software area."
Then UF staff would send a preliminary overview of the
technologies that might interest you as an entrepreneur. "If
you're interested in learning more about these technologies,
then we'd invite you to come to the university and meet with
the inventors responsible for those technologies," she said. "If
there's a good meeting of the minds, we move forward with a
business plan and ultimately a license agreement."
"When we have all of that together, we then go out to our
investor network and try to match up the opportunity with
the investment phase of the particular financial or venture
capital group we are seeking," Muir said.
The last piece of the process is having the needed facilities.
UF doesn't require that companies be based in UF but
should an entrepreneur decide to do so, the opportunity is
there. "
Gainesville is very fortunate to have not only one of the
world's leading biotechnology incubators but also a high-tech
incubator and a medical device incubator," Muir said. "We're
very connected with each of these incubators so when we get
the technology matched with the entrepreneur and matched
with the investor, we help them find the right facility that
offers the most opportunity to be successful."
LF's incubators hatch more than ideas; they also hatch suc-
cess. "With most businesses, the average success rate is about
20 percent, but in an incubator the average success rate is 80
percent," Muir said.
Part of the reason our program works so well is that we are
housed within the Office of Technology Licensing where all of

these discoveries are disclosed," she added. "We get about 300
disclosures per year and our licensing teams are very instru-
mental in helping to identify those technologies that we need
for this program. Without that synergy we couldn't be nearly
as successful as we are."
In addition to the incubators, UF has an extensive database
for entrepreneurs and investors. "If there's an entrepreneur
over in the Beaches interested in life sciences, for example, we
can tap into our database and identify which technologies we
have and which investors are interested in that space," said
Chris Brown, coordinator for UF Tech Connect. "We start the
process from there and communicate with the entrepreneur to
provide the info they may be interested in. It's a good way to
make a match."
UF relies on entrepreneurs to identify' the most promising
market opportunities for the technology and the best strategy
to get it to the market, Muir said.
There is one caveat, according to Muir, and that's experi-
ence. "If you don't have experience working in high tech,
then it's very tough to go down this path," she advised.
"Although there are many similarities in working in a hi-tech
company vs. retail or service entity, still there are numerous
components unique to high-tech," she said. "If you've been
there; done that in high-tech business, your chances of being
successful are much, much greater."
Ideally, the best match for UF Tech Connect and the
Beaches is an entrepreneur who ran a high-tech company or
an investor who backed a high-tech company before retiring.
"We know there are a lot of folks at the Beaches who did just
that." said Chris, "and we welcome their inquiries."

of Technology Licensing Web site at HYPERLINK

preneurial and/or investor experience in high-tech fields and

JVC hosts final Highsmith Tournament

While play was competitive
and the impending holiday
weekend made for a'festive
atmosphere Saturday, there was
also a tinge of sadness to the
Mike Highsmith Memorial vol-
leyball tournament in
Jacksonville Beach. The event
drew to a close after 10 years of
commemorating the life of an
area legend.
Highsmith, a surfer turned
top professional beach volley-
ball player, died at the age of
31 following a low-speed dirt
bike accident in Colorado. He
was a popular bartender in
Jacksonville Beach and demon-
strated athletic prowess in
snow skiing, water skiing, surf-
ing, rock climbing and a slew
of other outdoor activities.
A number of Highsmith's
contemporaries, many of
whom followed his lead in
becoming pro beach volleyball
players, participated in the leg-
ends portion of last Saturday's'
tournament. For some, it's the
only event they still play.
After a decade-long rnn,
however, the Highsmith
Memorial Tournament is being
phased out. It will be replaced
by another beach volleyball
event in late May on the
Jacksonville Volleyball Club
In Men's Open division play
Saturday, Ole Juve and Andy
Mignerey defeated Kent
Aminons and Scott Perry to
capture the title.
In the Women's Open classi-
fication, perennial winners Jill
Cox and Robin Mignerey
topped Brittany O'Neil and
Julie Taurey in the final.
There are two remaining
events this summer for
Jacksonville Volleyball Club
members. Next is the June 30
First Coast Summer Blast series
tournament, followed by a sim-
ilar event on September 29. In,
the past, JVC has endeavored
to host two-day tournaments
with co-ed and juniors play on
Sunday, but this season will
feature-one-day-events. wth all
championships decided on
As a way of thanking partici-
pants, many of whom have
played in or attended all 10
Highsmith Memorial events,
the family of the late volleyball
legend hosted a party at the
conclusion of play Saturday.
The mood was celebratory over
the life of Mike Highsmith, but
somber that the tournament
has come to an end.

Strong wind continues to hamper catches

Local anglers endured
another week of tough
fishing. The party boats
made successful trips on
Monday and Tuesday but a
strong wind kept anglers on
edge most of the week.
The second Xtreme Red Fish
Tournament took place last
Saturday with some fine
catches. Chris and Frank
Holleman captured first place
with their two fish weighing
12.58 pounds.
Greg Suki and Brad Safreed
were second with two reds
weighing 11.55 pounds.
Cy and Jerry De Angelis
were third with 11.50 pounds
and fourth place was taken by
George Atelevich and Larry
The best offshore report we
received last week came from
the "Sea Dancer" with Capt.
Dennis Young. Anglers Ron
Dorsett, Brian Sweeney, Bill
Wilderotter, Larry Wertz and
Mike Watts were the lucky
anglers who used frozen sar-
dines for bait and caught six
red snapper, three grouper


and a pair of cobia along with
several flounder, sea bass and
lane snapper.
The crew admitted that sev-
eral large fish got the best of
their tackle but were all smiles
as they arrived at the dock.
Rough seas took a toll on
the Jacksonville Beach Pier
fishing week, also. Jerry
Bennett brought a five-pound
flounder over the rail. Willie
Hendrick cleaned a five-pound
drum and Jacob Henry caught
a 26-inch red bass.
Other anglers brought in

some whiting, blues, trout,
pompano and, of course, cat-
fish. Spencer Brogden caught
his limit of speckled trout last
Tuesday for the week's best
Pier catch.
Anglers aboard the
"Mayport Princess" found fair-
ly calm seas last Monday and
Tuesday and made the most of
the opportunity. Seven snap-
per and grouper, ten amber-
jack and dozens of beeliners
and sea bass came off the
Princess last Monday after-
noon, and Tuesday was even
better. Twelve jacks, grouper
and snapper to 17 pounds and
a great catch of stringer fish
provided a perfect photo,
Aboard the "King Neptune,"
Monday, Tuesday and Sunday
were exciting days. Sunburned
anglers were cleaning 10
grouper, four snapper to 15
pounds, beeliners, sea bass
and triggerfish. It was much
the same on Tuesday and
Sunday with the addition of a
30-pound cobia, jacks to 40
pounds and lots of blacktips.
Al Wiltshire and friend John
Burroughs took "John's Toy"
to the jetties last Tuesday.
They didn't have to wait long
for the big whiting to start
biting. They caught 35 whit-
ing in just a few hours of fish-

Chris Holleman and Frank Holleman display their winning fish from last Saturday's Xtreme Red
Fish Tournament at the Joe Carlucci boat ramp. The fish weighed 6.58 pounds and 6 pounds.

Capt. Dave Sipler used live
shrimp to net eight speckled
trout, 14 drum, a blue and a
yellowmouth trout.
Randall Woodell fished the

river with mud minnows and
caught a flounder weighing
eight pounds.
. Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" fished the river
with Jerry Warden last Friday.
They used whole blue crabs
for bait and caught five huge

reds. Their largest weighed 40
Capte Dave Sipler and his
guests Jerry and Nino Trott
used live shrimp under corks
and caught 16 speckled trout,
a drum, jacks and ladyfish.

Not much for local baseball fans to celebrate

T thoughts left over from
Memorial Day festivities:
Local baseball fans may
have much to be thankful for,
but that doesn't include
diehards of Florida State,
Florida, Georgia Tech, the
Jacksonville Suns or Atlanta
Braves. And whatever became
of the Georgia Bulldogs?
What is this an epidem-
ic? What's caused such embar-
rassing performances by our
local heroes? If it weren't for
the Jacksonville University
Dolphins, we'd declare the
entire playoffs and regular
show a complete disaster and
demand a Congressional
On second thought, check
that: Congress should be
investigated first.
The postseasons in the SEC
and ACC promised a lot for
the so-called local favorites.
Florida State and Georgia
Tech, who have built them-
selves a nice little rivalry in



football have demonstrated in
the past they are tough to beat
anytime but especially when
the prestige of tournament
time is on tap.
North Carolina and Wake
Forest? Two good teams and
fine institutions of learning,
but hardly expected to be the
class of the ACC tournament.
Before the experts knew it,
the Seminoles and Yellow

Jackets had been disposed of
and the Tar Heels and Demon
Deacons were finalists. That
was much to the surprise of
everyone except the boys from
Chapel Hill and maybe a
friendly gypsy fortune teller.
Carolina edged Wake, the
alma mater of Arnold Palmer
and dozens of other fine ath-
letes, 3-2 on Sunday at the
Baseball Grounds of
It was the first ACC tourney
victory for UNC since way
back in 1990. Josh Horton,
shortstop for the Heels, whose
bat and glove played a major
part in the win, was a sturdy
four-year-old when North
Carolina last took home the
conference baseball title.
But while North Carolina
folks were celebrating their
good fortune, things weren't
jolly for other people. The
Jacksonville Suns appear to be
mired in the quicksand of a
road trip in which bad things
are happening in Tennessee

and before that in Mobile,
Alabama. The Jax boys seemed
lucky to get out alive.
Holding onto second place
by the wispy hair of their
chinny-chin-chins, the Suns
went to Birmingham hoping
for a rejuvenation from some-
where and somebody. Maybe
the Big Brother Los Angeles
Dodgers, maybe from a
guardian angel, maybe presi-
dential candidates from each
party will fight over who gets
to be the Suns' benefactor. At
any rate, manager John
Shoemaker needs help in a
In college baseball now any
team that goes to the tourna-
ment, no matter the outcome,
can pretty well assure its
coach will be back next year.
Not so with the pros who
make it to the playoffs. In the.
case of the Suns, no matter
how much woe they have
now, they're still in the run-
ning for the first half

get to manage right through.

season no matter how many.
odd things happen. The sport
always does. But there are still
strange things to keep baseball
in the headlines and flashing
across TV screens.
For example, the Atlanta
Braves, beset with injuries,
have been downright ugly.
They tell us that hapless
manager Bobby Cox, one of
the most successful major
league skippers, is closing in
on the record for being ejected
the most times in history. As a
longtime baseball reporter and
a devoted fan since childhood,
that surprises me.
Would have thought the
one chased most by the men
in blue was Leo "The Lip"
Durocher. Leo took a ton of

trips from the field to the
locker room in his long years
as manager of the BroQklyn
Dodgers, New York Giants,
Chicago Cubs and Houston -
the latter two stops in his
waning days.
We spent time in a
Jacksonville hotel some years
ago with Leo and asked him
about his feud with umpires.
"There was no feud,"
Durocher said with a straight
face. "Only with one or two
who seemed to have it in for
If Cox beats John McGraw
as the top ump baiter and
he needs only one more ejec-
tion to tie the record where
does that leave such champi-
on arguers as Frankie Fritsch,
Jimmy Dykes, Charlie Grimm
and more recently, Earl
Weaver of the Baltimore
Orioles? There should be a
hall of fame for them, too.
Those old boys would feel
lost today when seeing how
much the game has changed.

nation's waterway accident
investigators better understand
boat collision dynamics.

donated boats for testing pur-
poses in Virginia starting in
September. Watercraft owners
who wish to donate their boats
