Residents argue Selva project will overburden roads


Mayor says Selva willing
to limit height on all future
developments even on
land in Jacksonville

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
The Atlantic Beach City Commission
Monday approved an amendment to
change the designation for a portion of


the golf course at Selva Marina
Country Club from recreational to
residential on the city's future land use
map.
Selva Marina Country Club submit-
ted the application for the amendment
with the intention of selling 27.33
acres of the golf course to raise money
to improve the Club's facilities, accord-
ing to Club President Alan Ennis.
The land use change amendment is
one of two parts and is primarily
administrative, according to


Community Development Director
Sonya Doerr, who also emphasized
that the Comp Plan amendment does
not authorize approval of any specific
site plan.
The Community Development
Board and the City Commission still
have to review the Planned Unit
Development (PUD) application and
will have unlimited time to do so,
according to Doerr.
Many members of the community as
well as some from neighboring cities


spoke passionately at Monday's meet-
ing arguing both for and against the
amendment.
Some residents compared this proj-
ect with the recently passed Moody
project in Jacksonville which propos-
es 144 foot residential towers and 590
units explaining that Commissioners
had argued against overdevelopment
near their city limits and said that this
project would be similar.

Vandals have

stolen Keep Off

signs from boat

by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
A 46-foot vagabond sailboat,
"Kathleen" out of Ft. Lauderdale is ashore
on the Ponte Vedra Beach beachfront one
mile south of Mickler's Landing and wait-
ing for a possible returning tide the mid-
dle of this week.
The 27-year-old sailboat was bound
from Jacksonville to Pensacola June 15
when its engine quit, leading to the
beaching. Two men were working on the
vessel early Saturday afternoon, one a
member of the crew, Fred Groenert, the
other Randy Olson of Towboat U.S.,
which has salvage rights to "Kathleen."
"We were blown onto a lee shore,"
Groenert said. "The engine quit and we
tried to change course to go offshore. The
wind shifted, the owner (Julian Rose) and
his partner trying to tack got back-wind-
ed. We got blown ashore."
Rose was expected to return to the boat
later Saturday afternoon. Olson said he
would get the boat back as soon as he
could get it off the- beach.
"Once you go aground on a high tide,
you almost have to have the same high
tide or better to get it off," said Olson.
As of Saturday afternoon, the expecta-


tion was that the right tide would come
the middle of this week. The process has
been complicated by the fact that those
working on the boat have been unable to
take equipment to the beach. Block and
tackle has been their main approach.
The boat has faced theft and vandal-
ism.
"One of the things I get upset about is
all the things that were just taken," said
Olson, "[Since the belief has been] that
the boat doesn't belong to anybody, it's
been abandoned. They come aboard,
steal everything."
"They stole the steering wheel, they've
vandalized the interior completely. It's a
total mess," added Groenert. "They took
stuff apart for no apparent reason. It's a
27-year-old boat. None of the stuff is
usable anywhere-else, other than on this
boat.
Olson and Groenert' suspect that
teenagers have been responsible.
"I had "No Trespassing' and 'Keep Off'
signs posted on the boat, and they took
those," added Groenert.
"It's a gorgeous boat, just needs a little
attention and care to put it back together.
But now, since it's been raped by these
vandals, it's going to take a lot more time
and money to do that."
"If this had happened on any other
beach, we would have gotten it off
because we could have gotten equipment
down to it," said Olson. "We could have -
gotten a Caterpillar to push it off.
When the tide is proper, a tugboat will-
be at the site to help pull "Kathleen" off
the beach.


Butler to slow in p.m.


FROM STAFF
The Florida Department of
Transportation Monday started
a project to widen and resurface
5.8 miles of J. Turner Butler
Boulevard from east of Keman
Boulevard to San Pablo Road.
The $26.4 million construc-
tion project should be finished
in the late fall of 2009 or early
2010. The roadway will be
widened from four to six lanes
and drainage improvements are
also part of the project. The con-
tract specifies 810 days to com-


plete the work and also allows
extra time for weather delays
and unforeseen construction sit-
uations in the field.
Eastbound lane closings are
allowed from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
(one lane) and from 8 p.m. to 6
a.m. (two lanes). Westbound
lane closings are allowed from 6
p.m. to 6 a.m. (one lane) and
from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. (two
lanes). An average of 83,500
vehicles in both directions per
day travel through the project
limits.


FDOT to detail plans

for area roads at meet


FROM STAFF
Changes to Third Street
between the St. Johns County
line and Atlantic Boulevard and
on Atlantic Boulevard from
Third Street to Mavport Road
will be presented for public
inspection Thursday.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) will host
a workshop at the Jacksonville
Beach City Council Chambers,
located at 11 N. Third Street.
FDOT staff will be available
from 4-6 p.m. to answer ques-
tions and at 6 p.m.,,public com-
ments will be taken.
The proposed Ilmpovet-ments
include resurfacing and upgrad-
ing the traffic signals.
One major item of interest is a
proposal to relocate the traffic
signal from the 36th Avenue
South/Ponte Vedra Boulevard
intersection to the Jacksonville
Drive/37th Avenue South inter-
section.
FDOT said a raised median
will be constructed at 36th
Avenue South/Ponte Vedra
Boulevard to improve safety.
Related improvements will
include building a new access
road from 36th Avenue South to
Jacksonville Drive to provide


access to residents and business-
es on the west side of SR A1A.
Other work includes replacing a
48-inch storm sewer pipe across
SJacksonville Drive because the
existing pipe is deteriorating,
FDOT officials said.
Also planned is the closure of
the first median opening north
of Beach Boulevard to lengthen
the southbound left turn lane at
the intersection of Beach
Boulevard and Third Street.
These safety improvements are
recommended to help reduce
the number of crashes at this
location, FDOT officials said.
Additional right of way is need
edt
Currently, plans are to resur-
face and make these improve-
ments in two different projects.
.The. southern most segment
extends from the St. Johns
County line. to Ninth Avenue
North and is scheduled for the
Summer of 2008. Then, from
Ninth Avenue North to Mayport
Road is scheduled for, resurfac-
ing in the Winter of 2009.
The median changes along
Atlantic Boulevard are to accom-
modate a proposed Wal-Mart,
according to DOT spokesman
Mike Goldman.

"Kathleen," a 45-foot vagabond sailboat out of Ft. Lauderdale, has been on
the beach at Ponte Vedra Beach since June 15, one mile south of
Mickler's Landing. Owners said they hope a high tide expected the middle
of this week will help her get back to sea.

'Safe Trak' may help to find lost elderly


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
St. Johns County Sheriff
David Shoar unveiled a track-
ing device last week that
could be used to find senior
citizens with dementia or
children with autism.
The device is a wristwatch-.
size item that the adult or
child wears. It transmits a sig-
nal that is picked up by a
receiver at the Sheriff's Office,
which allows a lost person to
be quickly located.
"This is a great program,"
Shoar said at a news confer-
ence at the Sheriff's Office in
St. Augustine.
The program, called Safe
Trak, falls under an existing
program called Sheriff's
Ambassadors for the Elderly
(S.A.F.E.), which provides reg-
ular visitation and security
checks for those in the pro-
gram.
"I'm proud of this program,
but more importantly, beyond
Safe Trak, the S.A.F.E. pro-
gram," said Shoar, who said
about 50 persons are in the
S.A.FE. program. "Senior citi-
zens are extremely vulnera-
ble."
Shoar said he created the
S.A.F.E. program because he
believes that, as the senior.
population continues to
increase, there will be more
incidents where seniors are at
risk.
A Safe Trak locator costs
$200, and its battery has to be
changed monthly. A sticker
can make it look like a watch.
Right now, the Sheriff's


Internet literacy taught
A Jacksonville-based pro-
gram will offer a workshop to
those interested in learning
basic Internet skills.
Learn to Read is offering the
class July 28 from 9:30 a.m.

Students will learn Internet
basics, such as how to open a
browser and how to use an
address bar and search
engines.

Progtam~recently eaftied a per-

Kindergarten Readiness
Screener, a student test admin-
istered by the Early Learning
Coalition of Duval arid
designed by the. Florida
Department of Education. A
score of 300 means every four-
year-old child in The Beaches
School's 2005-2006. VPK pro-
gram was deemed ready for
kindergarten. Only three other
programs of the 290 tested in
Duval County received perfect
scores. "We are proud to offer
the community a VPK pro-
gram that delivers what it
promises; four-year-old stu-
dents who are fully prepared
to enter kindergarten," said
Linda Perschel, owner of The
Beaches School with campuses


Office has two units, each of
which has its own receiver.
Shoar said the Sheriff's Office
is doing fund-raising for the
program, and the devices will
be given out as needed.
"We've got people in this
county who live on $700 a
month, and they can't afford
this," he said. "All of us in
this room, if we had someone
who had Alzheimer's or
dementia, we would buy it."
"If they have dementia or
Alzheimer's, with the Safe
Trak system we can track
them within seconds," Shoar
said.
Sgt. Bonnie McCullough,
the program's coordinator,
tested the system for the
media. A staff member, wear-
ing a transmitter, went to an
unknown area of the Sheriff's
Office complex, where
McCullough, using a mobile
receiver, tracked him down
McCullough said a couple
of people have been identified
for Safe Trak.
"They don't know, but the
caregivers do," said
McCullough, who trains
agency members to use the
tracking device.
McCullough is being assist-
ed by Sandra Nasca of Ponte
Vedra Beach, who has long
been a volunteer with foster
children.
"Sandra also will be doing
the tracking. She works with
participants in our S.A.F.E.
program, also," McCullough
said.
Shoar said S.A.F.E. aims at
preventing financial exploita-
tion and abuse of the elderly,

The Leader's Opinion

Dangerous teens


are threat to all


No doubt, all the teenagers who descended on down-
town Jacksonville Beach on the night of July 1 were not
lawless hooligans. Most were probably just young people
out for a summer-time fling. But there were enough bad
apples in that barrel to spoil the whole bunch.
Police had to call in reinforcements from Atlantic
Beach, Neptune Beach, and Jacksonville to contain the
several hundred youths who arrived sometime after 10
p.m. determined to continue their party in downtown
parking lots and Latham Plaza.
According to police, the teens were coming from the
Globe, an in-town Beach Boulevard club catering to teens.
The proof that these were not just teens being teens lies
in the events of the evening. Jacksonville Beach police
made eight arrests, confiscated a shotgun, 9mm handgun
and a 44 magnum, all loaded. At least one weapon was
fired. According to the police report, someone in. the
crowd was overheard making an expletive laced threat to
shoot one of the officers.
That same Sunday evening between 10:30 and 11, a 16-
year-old was shot and killed and another youth was
wounded. Jacksonville police said a fight at the Globe led
to the shooting which happened at a gas station near the
club. One can only speculate whether the killer later
joined the mob in Jacksonville Beach.
Jacksonville Beach police are to be commended for their
ability, so far, to keep the lid on this incendiary situation
with significant help from the officers of the other Beach
cities and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. But one has to
wonder if these hooligans are getting the message and
how long it will be before parking lot fights with loaded
guns result in a tragic incident. After all, 10:30 p.m. is
early enough for Jacksonville Beach restaurant patrons to
be leaving their favorite eateries and walking into the mid-
dle of a deadly teen war.
Make no mistake, a group of unruly teens with no
parental supervision will provide cover for some real crim-
inals, the kind of criminals who kill people.

Supersized corporations can miss on service


To the editor:
My husband served for 23
years active duty in the U.S.
Navy. Retired. July 3, I spent
a great deal of time shopping
at Lowe's as I'm involved in a
condo renovation. Twice I
was randomly greeted in the
I aisles by different friendly-
managers inquiring if I had
found everything I was look-
ing for.: They's almost as
friendly and helpful"is the
folks at Ace Hardware.
When I finally went to the
cashier I was advised; if
you're military we would like
to thank you. I was given 10
percent off my total purchase
price, something also given
during Memorial Day week-
end. All I needed was to
show my Military I.D.. What
a wonderful surprise as I did-


n't notice the patriotic sign
as I walked into the store.
My next stop was Home
Depot for two gallons of
paint to finish a project over
the long weekend. As I went
to the cashier I inquired
about any military discount
for the 4th of July weekend.
No one offered assistance in
the store and I waited in line
-for mixed paint. I was
advised that Home Depot
doesn't give any discount
unless you have a coupon
from the military newspaper.
I showed my military I.D..
Curious, asked where would
military families go pick up
such a newspaper? Rudely I
was told, "'I don't know, It's
our corporate, they make the
policies and it's offended a
few families because our


store is close to a base... don't
blame me, it's corporate!'"
Customers choose to walk
through the doors of stores
to make purchases. Sadly
some customers ask or
demand more attention than
others and can never be
happy. These customers can
almost seem abusive and can
ruin someone's day...Yet,
attitudes can 'quickly be
changed when assisted with
someone friendly and a smile
in their voice even if it's on
the telephone.
I have found this is some-
thing our own Ace Hardware
stores seem to take great
pride in their helpfulness,
friendliness and small town,
atmosphere.

Pop culture obsession makes poor citizens


To the editor.
As I enjoyed the company
of friends and acquaintances
while feasting on a gourmet
selection of salads, veggies,
and barbecuemieats and fish, I
thought about what has hap-
pened to my country since
George W. Bush and Richard
Chaney took office.-
I divided my thoughts into
two categories, what I do
know and what I can expect to
happen. I do know that Bush-
Chaney-stole the election of
2000 with _the..ielpi..af a
Republican Supreme Court, as
well as the illegal behavior of
Governor Jeb Bush, Ms,
Kathryn Harris, then
Governor and Secretary of
State respectively.
Immediately the new
administration put into opera-
tion a propaganda machine,
which involved the help of
former President Bush, to fur-
ther the interests of the
wealthiest 10 percent of the
population to earn more prof-


its, and to gain even greater
control over the other 90 per-
cent. This is something that
you don't talk about, because
profits come before social
responsibility with these indi-
viduals. Remember that it was
always the cornerstone of the'
wealthy to control the mind-
set of the workers by attempt-
ing to take away Social
Security, minimum hourly
rates, OSHA, and to tell the big
lie that American employers
could no longer afford to pro-
vide pensions and health care
coverage, what was customari-
ly referred to as "employee
-benefits".
Knowing that the American
population, for the most part,
was now made-up of under-
educated, pop culture addict-
ed, self-obsessed individuals
who know nothing about
what the contents of the
Declaration of Independence
and the Bill of Rights, as well
as the rest of the United States
Constitution has to say.


The wealthy class took
advantage of every opportuni-
ty while the remaining 90 per-
cent remained afraid to voice
any objections. Just look at
the tax cuts given to the
wealthy 10 percent by this
administration and at the
same time to balance the
budget with deep cuts in all
social services programs.
But I am an .optimist, and
truly believe in the greatest
quote of any American
President, and that is:
"YOU CAN FOOL ALL OF
THE PEOPLE SOME OF THE
TIME, SOME OF THE PEOPLE
ALL OF THE TIME, BUT YOU
CANNOT FOOL ALL OF THE
PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME"
President Abraham
Lincoln
I firmly believe also that
sooner or later everyone
eventually gets what he or
she deserves.

Fishy


revenge

WA e could say it's a fish-
erman's fantasy: fish
leaping into passing
boats. (Trying. to escape pol-
luted waters, perchance?)
Unfortunately, the newest fly-
ing fish can be pretty big and,
in a June 21, 2007 CNN
Headline News video clip,
they're shown hitting boat
occupants, almost knocking
them down. The fish were
carp in Illinois, and boaters
there have reportedly begun
to use garbage can lids as
shields.
That scene made interest-
ing, even funny, TV viewing.
However, the leaping fish
phenomenon has shown up
in Florida in a more serious
and in fact dangerous form.
Sturgeon inhabiting the
Suwannee and
Choctawhatchee rivers have
been jumping and striking
boat occupants, sometimes
seriously injuring the person.
In one of the most damag-
ing incidents, publicized April
25, 2006, by the Florida
Museum of Natural History, a
woman cruising the
Suwannee was hit in the face
by a 3-foot-long Gulf sturgeon
(it's also found in the Gulf of
Mexico) that leaped into the
boat. According to the state-
ment, "The impact of' the
bony plates of the fish caused
(the victim) to suffer several
facial injuries and fractures
requiring plastic surgery...."
(By. a sturgeon. surge,on, no
clou. .
rrWhA'-. particularly 'fear-'
some is the size and power of
these fish, which, ironically,
are considered a "threatened
species" by the federal gov-
ernment. The Museum
remarked, "Gulf
sturgeons...can jump as high
as 8 'feet in' the air. They can
be as long, as 8 feet and can
weigh up to. 200 pounds."
Whew!
On scuba dives, I've seen
scary critters underwater; e.g.,
moray eels, over-inquisitive
barracudas, an alligator), but I
was never attacked by one.
Who would expect to be in a
boat and get mugged by a
fish?! Maybe there's some
kind of piscine conspiracy
underway. The fish could be,
in effect, saying, "There! Take
that for eating my father!"
In fact, there are apparently
those who suspect as much.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service received a call asking,
"Are they attacking people on
purpose?" The USFWS dis-
counted the happenings as,
"purely random acts." Being
government guys, they proba-
bly did a survey, asking a rep-.
resentative sample of fish.
Anyway, we evidently have
a bunch of fish-like friends in
the underwater world.
Recently, a member of
American Legion Post 129,
Anita Langham, had passed
away and her ashes were
being dispersed in the ocean
from a Navy ship. Witnesses
said that, as the remains were
being respectfully dropped
overboard, a pair of dolphins
jumped spectacularly out of
the water in a kind of Flipper-
like salute to the deceased.

Police log rabies
alerts, but big cat
is not diseased

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A bobcat discovered along a
stretch of South Beach Parkway
in Jacksonville Beach July 3
was killed by police after con-
cerns were raised about a possi-
ble rabies case.
Officers responding to an
animal investigation. observed
the bobcat, appearing 'si&k or
injured, hiding under the
shrubs in the 2500 block of
South Beach Parkway.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
were notified of the incident
but were unable to reach the
scene quickly to euthanize the
animal.
According to the police
report, several reports have
come in regarding wild animals
with rabies in the Beaches area
but officials with the Duval
County Health Department
Tuesday Said they had not
received any information
regarding an outbreak that
would warrant issuing a rabies
alert.
An officer shot ,the bobcat
once in the head and trans-
ported the deceased animal to
a nearby veterinarian for dis-
posal.
Vet staff concurred that it
appeared the animal was struck
by a car and did not test the cat
for rabies.

Six homeless men and
women ranging in age from 25
to 39 were cursing at pedestri-

Changes to Third Street
between the St. Johns County
line and Atlantic Boulevard
and on Atlantic Boulevard
from Third Street to Mayport
Road will be presented for
public inspection Thursday.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) will
host a workshop at the
Jacksonville Beach City
Council Chambers, located at
11 N. Third Street. FDOT staff
will be available from 4-6 p.m.
to answer questions and at 6
p.m., public comments will be
taken.
The proposed improve-
ments include resurfacing and
upgrading the traffic signals.
One major item of interest
is a proposal to relocate the
traffic signal from the 36th
Avenue South/Ponte Vedra
Boulevard intersection to the
Jacksonville Drive/37th
Avenue South intersection.
FDOT said a raised median
will be constructed at 36th
Avenue South/Ponte Vedra
Boulevard to improve safety.
Related improvements will
include building a new access
road from 36th Avenue South
to Jacksonville Drive to pro-
vide access to residents and
businesses on the west side of
SR A1A. Other work includes
replacing a 48-inch storm

sewer pipe across Jacksonville
Drive because the existing
pipe is deteriorating, FDOT
officials said.
DOT spokesman Gina
Busscher said Tuesday after-
noon in a phone interview
that the proposed change is
expected to draw comments
as there has been some criti-
cism of the plan already.
Also planned is the closure
of the first median opening
north of Beach Boulevard to
lengthen the southbound left
turn lane at the intersection
of Beach Boulevard and Third
Street. These safety improve-
ments are recommended to
help reduce the number of
crashes at this location, FDOT
officials said. Additional right
of way is needed.
Currently, plans are to
resurface and make these
improvements in two differ-
ent projects. The southern
most segment extends from
the St. Johns County line to
Ninth Avenue North and is
scheduled for the Summer of
2008. Then, from Ninth
Avenue North to Mayport
Road is scheduled for resurfac-
ing in the Winter of 2009.
Median changes along
Atlantic Boulevard are to
accommodate a proposed
Wal-Mart, according to DOT
spokesman Mike Goldman.

Home Sweet Home: Building a house to rebuild a life


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
"The whole thing was amaz-
ing," summarizes Jonnie Young
to describe her experience with
Habitat at the Beaches.
Young first got involved with
the organization in March
2006. She was very active in her
church for years, and used to
volunteer for Habijax. She
couldn't imagine that one day,
she would benefit from the
homeowners program. But it
happened.
She recalled the day on March
2006, when her partner of eight
years asked her to leave after a
disagreement.
"There I was: 41 years-old,
with three children, a full-time
job, and no home," she said. It
was abrupt, unplanned, and
scary.
Within eight weeks, she
moved five times. Different
friends and families in her
church opened their houses to
her and her children.
She said she was grateful for
these helpful hands, but it was
still a difficult time. During
these eight weeks, she experi-
enced the reality of being
homeless and said it was tough
to face the recurrent question
her children would ask after
school: "'Where are we going
now?'"
"The hardest part of being
homeless is not having the
comfort of a home. When
you're tired, and you're cold,
and you've had a hard day at
work, you go home, you fall on
the couch, take a blanket, and
watch some mindless TV show,
while drinking your favorite
tea...This was not possible for
us."
She and her children .moved
into a house owned by Helping
Hands Village, a nonprofit


Jonnie Young relaxes at her home.


organization dedicated to house
families in transitional situa-
tions at the Beaches.
In the meantime, she started
the Habitat process, attending
an orientation meeting, per-
forming eight hours of volun-


teer service as an application
fee, and meeting with the
Family Selection Committee.
Young said she was amazed
how things happened so quick-
ly. "From start to finish, it took
less than one year to move into


my new home," she says.
Her house was sponsored by
Apostle Build, one of the pro-
grams provided by Habitat,
which involves a community of
churches. Her church family
.took part in the project as the


main sponsor.
"It was wonderful to work
side by side with people with
whom I worshiped. The most
amazing part was how we lifted
each other up." '
During the five months of


construction, she credits the
support of others and her faith
with giving her the strength to
get through the situation she
was struggling with.
"Otherwise, how could I have
been able to work 40 hours a
week, plus an average of 14
hours on the house, and then
take care of the kids? God had
to be along with very wonderful
people: my Church family,
Habitat's staff and volunteers."
"When things were hard, I
used to walk on the Beach,
spoke to God, and I prayed for a
sign. I would ask him to send
me a dolphin. And a dolphin
would jump out of the water,"
she said.
Her house was dedicated in
January 2007.
She .said she felt a twinge of
sorrow after the ceremony.. The
construction was over, and so
was the team who worked con-
sistently for several months.
She said she plans to come
back as a volunteer, because
Habitat has become her second
family.
Describing Habitat as both a
beautiful and necessary thing
here at the Beaches, she
explained that the housing cri-
sis here has affected the profile
of homeless people.
"Now, homeless people look
like me! So many service indus-
tries workers have lost their
homes due to the cost of real
estate.
She says that Habitat brought
her a new beginning: "Not only
did they build me a house; they
helped me build my life again,
out of the ruin."
This story was written by an
intern for Habitat at the Beaches.

by calling 241-1222.

Isn't it wonderful to smell
the mouth-watering aroma.
of lasagna? Comfort food,
can't you just taste it? Cooking
for my family gives me a feel-
ing of satisfaction.
I come from a long line of
household executives. Women
who take pride in staying
home with their children and
who love to gather them
around the table. Moms who
are humbled to be able to make
this their full-time commit-
ment.
Today I am feeling especially
nostalgic. My Mom just gave
me a marigold-colored lasagna
pan. It belonged to my Granni.
I am inspired by the hundreds
of meals that have been loving-
ly prepared by her precious
hands.
It represents my mother's
childhood. My mind's eye pic-
tures Mom helping Granni
cook dinner in this dish for her
six brothers and sisters.
Imagine the laughter they must
have shared, the special con-
versations had.
What must it have been like
cooking in the middle of that
chaos? I know what dinnertime
is like with three, but seven?
Oh, to have been a fly on the
wall. Nothing seemed to faze

stride. Always sharing her beau-
tiful attitude and zest for life.
M o m you are not going to
believe this. Get in here now,"
Patti frantically calls to her
mom.
G r a n n i hustles to the
girl's room while she is fever-
ishly working to get the kids
ready for a Christmas portrait.
Johnny is looming over the
muddle with a mischievous
look on his face.
An amazing seamstress,
Granni had made matching
dresses for the three girls.
Laney's frock had been sabo-
taged in a way she never could
have imagined. It had been
attacked by the brother, hold-
ing the scissors, in the pink


room with the red shag carpet.
"Oh, heavens." Her lips
pressed together taut, causing
those little lines to form at the
comers of her mouth. Hands
on both hips.
She scurries to the scraps,
gathers them up with a few
mutterings under her breath
and retreats to her sewing
room. Grabbing the Scotch
tape, her diligent hands piece it
back together in no time. What
a gal. The family photo goes off
without a hitch. There was
nothing she couldn't conquer.
I will think of Granni and
smile each time I prepare a
family meal in my bright yel-
low- dish. What a wonderful
reminder of memories to share
with my boys. Nourishing their
bodies with the same pan that
fed my Poppa; two aunts, four
uncles and my mom. Such his-
tory and so much love.
The next time I see an old
piece of kitchenware at a
garage sale, I will see it with
different eyes. The dings and
scratches are vessels to the
many stories it could tell. Just
like wrinkles on the old, they
have been earned, full of char-
acter, each tied to a lifetime of

The Beaches Area Model Railroad Club
needs a new home.
Club members recently learned the proper-
ty it has been using at 953 4th St. N. has been
sold and the group will have to find a new
home for its model trains and meetings.
Club spokesman Richard Paul said the
building the club is in has been acquired by
Hakimian Holding of Jacksonville. According
to Paul, Hakimian has purchased the entire
block of buildings, including Sportsmania.
"If we want to pay $15 a square foot for
rent, we could stay there. That's roughly.
$1,500, and we can't afford that. If we can't
find another location for the Beaches Area
Model Railroad Club, we're going to be
homeless," said Paul, who founded the club
in 1993 with Dave Henk.
Since 2000, the model railroad club has
met Tuesdays and Fridays at 953 4th St. N. in
Jacksonville Beach. The club has 22 adult and
six junior members. The $20-a-month, dues-
paying group attracts retirees. The tab for
juniors is $1 a year.
The club's lease at the current location ends


Aug. 31. Because of renovations they did, the
members didn't have to pay rent for the sec-
ond-floor space.
"Having it rent-free has been a huge help to
us to keep our costs down so we could spend
money on the layout and keep the dues rea-
sonable," Paul has said. "The club is basically
open to anyone interested in model railroad-
ing."
The club is looking for 800 to 1,000 square
feet of space that would rent for $200 to $250
a month.
"That's the most we can afford," Paul said
July 5. "We were thinking of buying an old
railroad car, putting it on a property and ren-
ovating it."
The cost of the property they had in mind
was $2,600 a month.
"We're looking for someone who might
have vacant property who would be willing
for us to pay $200-250 a month. We would
pay utilities; we have our own liability insur-
ance. We would be willing to renovate the
property," Paul said.
Scale-model-railroad-inclined landlords
can reach Paul at 223-5133 or Henk at 641-
8800.

FROM CONTRIBUTOR

Summer is here, school is
out and kids are only looking
forward to sitting in front of a
TV and playing video games
all day. It's usually thfs time
of year that kids get lazy, apa-
thetic and gain weight.
To keep kids moving and
having fun, MY GYM offers
ten suggestions of things to
do with children. The sug-
egstions include:
Alphabet Soup Game: This
game is a fun spin off of freeze
dance! For youngsters, every
time the music stops they
need to yell the next letter in
the alphabet. For your older
children, when the music
stops have them find a part-
ner and make their bodies
into the next letter of the
alphabet! You can start the
game at A and go consecutive-
ly through the letters or start
with Z and go backwards to
make it more tricky!


Circle Chase: Have every-
one participating sit in a cir-
cle! For youngsters, have the
child chase the parent around
the outside of the circle! For
your older children, have
three children chase at a time
around their friends ... Trying
not to be passed by their
friend behind them!
Color Tag: The game leader
will yell out a color and a
body party (ex: Toes on Red)
and the children need to put
their body part on that color!
To make this game more
tricky yell out two colors and
two body parts (ex: Stomachs
on Yellow, Elbows on Green)!
Freeze Tag: This is a classic!
One to three children are it -
Parents can play with younger
children as their teammate -
The three children that are it
work to tag and freeze all of'
their friends!
Meow Mix Shuffle: When
the music starts, the children


all run around within the out-
lined play area. When the
music stops they need to
make a group of two. The next
time the music stops they'll
have to find a group of
three... then four... and so on!
Musical Hula Hoops: This
is a fun spin off of musical
chairs but rather than get-
ting out when there aren't
enough chairs, the children
work to fit as many people
necessary within the remain-
ing hoop(s)!

add pillow-sacks, or even try
three legged races!
Snowball Game: Why not!?
Snow in the summer time!!
You'll need as many nerf balls
as you have children When
the music turns on, the chil-
dren are able to throw snow-
balls (nerf balls) at their
friends, but when the music
stops they have to pretend
they are pillows and fall
asleep!
Animal Relay: For this
game, you'll need two lines
approximately 12 15 feet
apart. Have the children move
from line to line acting out
different animals! They can be
monkeys, snakes, giraffes,
bears, frogs, cheetahs, ele-
phants! You can even have
them come up with their own
animals!

explains that it came abotit
when he found the international program, Thin and
Healthy's Total Solution, and decided to bring it to this
community. This program's foundation is based on this
emphasis formula: 55% motivation, 30% movement and
15% food. Steve already had a work-out facility that was
helping people get fit, but quickly saw the benefit of a one-
stop program that could provide his clients with so much
more in the quest to be thinner and healthier.
Both Steve and Jessica are certified specialists in this
proven program. While food is one of the foundation
points, they are quick to point out that this is not a pro-
gram about food, it's about WHY you eat. There are NO
plastic pre-packaged items to buy.
"This is very much a one-on-one approach", Jessica says.
"In part of our program, we sit down with you and ask you
to list your 20 favorite foods. You will receive your own
grocery list and menus to help you incorporate those foods
in a way that contributes to your weight loss goals. And,
we give you tricks and guidance on a very personal level."
"We meet each client where they are at right now. Our
job with Thin and Healthy's Total Solution is to make it
yours."
This is especially true in the area of movement. Some of
us have a life that includes no movement at all. Some have
put off starting any fitness effort because of the fear of
ridicule when he or she puts an out-of-shape body out,.
there in the spotlight. "No mirrors here" is the immediate
evidence that Total Solution at Ocean Life Fitness is differ-
ent. There is a privacy area where you meet with your spe-
cialist and receive personal training and a plan that is
exclusively yours.
"Movement gets your metabolism going so this is part of
it. We provide a track inside our location, (5150 Palm
Valley Road in the Ponte Vedra Business Park), so you can
get started in a private way. If you don't move at all, we
help you get started in small movements with resistance
and movement routines."
Steve points out that Jessica knows how to motivate peo-
ple. Many of his clients from his former franchise Fit

After Fifty have already started this program, including
Steve, himself. The body movement facility he established
at this location is part of the new Total Solution program.
"This is an entire package," Steve says, "and we guarantee
a weight loss of two to seven pounds a week with a twice a
week steady commitment on your part."
S"We'll get you toned and healthy so you can go to one of
those mirrored gyms later!" he says. "But there is no span-
dex here."
You'll want to meet Jessica, who has lived at the Beach
for 26 years. She is enthusiastic about the possibilities Total
Solution offers her clients, but, more than that, she under-
stands each person's hesitation and limitations. Her first
goal is to help get you started, at whatever level that is for
you, and then "We stay with you every step of the way.
Your goal is our goal" Motivation, remember, is 55% of the
program, so you can expect lots of help with that. It is
your desire, but Ocean Life Fitness is there to remind you
of your goals and how to achieve them.
Last but not least is Goal Maintenance. "That is the most
important part of the program" said Steve. "Once you
,reach your goal, the coaches are going to help you along
with Life Success Maintenance to help you learn how to
keep your weight off permanently. You'll be getting lessons
emailed to you on a regular basis from motivational speak-
ers from the likes of Donna'Krech, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy
and many more. The lessons will be on things like time
management, building better relationships,
budgeting....things that have probably caused you to gain
weight in the first place."
You can start today. If you call, 285- THIN (8446) you
can be in the air-conditioned facility that same day getting
started. It's the "last stop" you will need, no matter what
your age.
Ocean Life Fitness is located at 5150 Palm Valley Road in
the Ponte Vedra Business Park in suite #209. The hours are
7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 1
p.m. on.Saturday. All major credit cards are accepted.
Your first movement, picking up the phone, is the right
start. Call 285-THIN today.

Concepcion making his mark with the Suns


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST

If the FBI ever put out a dragnet for
Jacksonville Suns star Alberto Concepcion, it
would have to cover a lot of ground while
seeking the native Californian. That's because
he covers more ground than a tarp in wet
weather.
Alberto is a catcher, or at least was, until
Suns manager John Shoemaker discovered that
the talented Concepcion could play just about
any position on the field and still hit with ease.
Seems to come naturally to the player of
Cuban ancestry.
When he's not sharing catching chores with
A.J. Ellis, Concepcion will usually be found at
third base. But he can get his mitt just about
anywhere else in fair territory. The former
University of Southern California star just
wants to play.
While he's done just about everything but
pitch, there's another Sun who can still one-up
Alberto and that's Jimmy Rohan. Both players
have seen duty at a variety of positions, but
Rohan has also tossed a few innings for
Jacksonville.
Still, if you're going to compare these two
multi-dimensional performers, it must be noted
that Rohan has yet to don the "tools of igno-
rance" and get behind the plate.
Concepcion is not concerned about which of


his teammates have played where he just
wants to be in the lineup and get a chance to
swing the bat, something he does with amaz-
ing skill. He came into the
pros with the reputation of
being a hitter.
In Alberto's last year at
Southern Cal, he coolly hit
.363 with 11 home runs
and 48 runs batted in. He
passed up an opportunity
to be drafted by the San-.
Diego Padres to become a .
Trojan. Safe to say he want- .
ed to give it the old college
try, and did so.
But when the Boston Red
Sox tabbed him in the 21st
round of the 2002 Major
League Baseball Draft,
Concepcion decided it was
time to begin the profes-
sional aspect of his baseball
career and signed.
What he didn't count on
was the time it takes a
rookie to climb the ladder
in minor league baseball. It Alberto Cc
can be a bumpy bus ride.
For Concepcion, it has amounted to a detour
of four years, spending time in Double-A
Portland (three seasons) and five games at
Triple-A Pawtucket last year.


The Dodgers grabbed Alberto from the Red
Sox farm system during the most recent offsea-
son. Just how and why Concepcion came to
the Suns by way of the par-
ent club in Los Angeles is
not as important to
Jacksonville management
as the fact that he's here. If
you doubt it, club presi-
dent Peter Bragan, Jr. will
give the lowdown.
:.`... "We're really happy with
what he's given us on
defense and especially on
f. offense," said Bragan. "No,
we didn't expect him to be'
this useful.
"Just like getting A.J.
[Ellis] he's turned out to be
one of our real important
players. He likes being
here, too, and that's impor-
tant."
Concepcion could be
likened to another of the
same surname, Dave
Concepcion who became a
>ncepcion big star with the
Cincinnati Reds in the
1970s. Maybe it's a good baseball name.
Alberto was mistaken for being of Italian her-
itage when he first arrived at the Baseball
Grounds, but made it clear he's all Cuban and


all Californian. Born 26 years ago in Torrance,
Concepcion now calls El Segundo home.
He tells you he has "plenty of relatives" but
the one he misses most now is 1-and-a-half-
year old son Jacob, who is with Alberto's wife
in California.
"I miss him, but you can't take a child that
young around in this business," he says.
Also a proud man, ambitious and ready to
take on all foes, including umpires,
Concepcion recently got his baptism into the
Southern League by being chased for protesting
a call.
"It really wasn't anything I said,"
Concepcion explains with a twinkle in his
eyes. "I think he just didn't like me standing in
front of him. Maybe I blocked him out."
Generally even-tempered with a good sense
of humor, the 6-1, 220 pound slugger will need
those attributes, especially in the minors.
But he's not complaining.
"I'm just happy to be here and I hope I'm
able to contribute to a winning season," he
said.
The Bragans and Shoemaker say he's already
doing that. In the opening game of the second
half of the season, Concepcion knocked in six
runs, including a two-run homer.
He's also played four different positions this
year in style.
Is Alberto helping the Suns' cause? Just ask
the Bragans and Suns fans who have seen him
play.

By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER
M ost people who fish
can count at least one
of two extremely
lucky days when the fish were
plentiful and everything went
just right.
Lon Bryan and his crew
aboard the Southbound had
and entire season go that well.
Bryan and his crew would
go on to win four tourna-
ments last year, a new record
in the Southern Kingfish
Association's books.
"It was just absolutely
insane," Bryan said. "I never
thought that could happen.
It probably never will happen
agaih, either."
The Jacksonville Beach resi-
dent won the first tournament.
at the Sapelo Open King
Mackerel Tournament in
Shellman Bluff, Georgia,
bringing his 23-foot Yamaha-
powered Contender to the
scales with a 34.12-pound
fish.
After that, things just got
better for the five-man crew of
Bryan, Andy Miska, Tyler


Eichholz, Ryan Keith and
Chris Techke.
The Following weekend, the
crew entered the King Buster
400 in St. Augustine and land-
ed a 44-pound fish in the sec-
ond day, knocking off the
leader by .1 pounds.
"It's one of the largest king-
fish tournaments in the area
with the exception of the
Greater Jacksonville
Tournament," Bryan said.
"That win was awesome."
Southbound runs in two
divisions in the SKA, Division
4, which covers Ga., and
Division 5, which is the North
Florida region.
Bryan and the crew of
Southbound followed the win
with another in Two Way
Sportfishing Club's Kingfish
Tournament in Brunswick,
Ga., bringing in a 36-pound
king to win their second
Division 4 event of the sea-
son.
Things didn't slow down for
the Southbound crew as they
headed to Fernandina Beach
for the Nassau Sport Fishing
Association Tournament of
Champions and weighed in a


53-pound fish for another
win.
Bryan noticed an unusual
occurrence last year. All the
winning fish
were coming
offshore.
"Usually

said. "Last caught by

"This year, Captain of
the trend is
the opposite.
They're catching them by the
beach again."
That doesn't stop Bryan and
Southbound from hitting
their usual spots each tourna-
ment. Despite hearing where
the fish may be biting, the
crew still heads to the same

Tournament,
pulling in another 40-pound
fish.
Along with the top finish it
the class last year, Bryan and
his crew also placed 11th in
the VIP tournament..
Most may call it luck but
Bryan will admit, despite


some luck, he has a hard
working crew.
"Yeah it's luck," he said.
"We all fish hard. All the guys
are real good fishers and
they're all smart fishers. We
won two boats and a bunch of
cash so we can't complain."
All the wins added up
enough to place Southbound
first in both Division 4 and
Division 5 last year, including
a record 137.5-pound aggre-
gate total in Division 5, or an
average of just over 45 pounds
for the three winning fish
used in the aggregate.
"That's just ridiculous,"
Bryan said. "It's just sick. It
usually takes an agg of 105 to
110 pounds to win the divi-
sion. We had 137, which is
just unreal. I don't think
that's going to happen again."
Bryan got into fishing with
his father when he was "just
starting to walk," he says and
has been fishing ever since.
"I grew up fishing," Bryan
remarked. "We do all this for
fun. We're all best friends that
are just hardcore about this.
"We try to fish every week-
end. We spend the entire


Excitement builds for GJKT event


FROM STAFF
The 27th Annual AT&T Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament takes
place July 16-21 at Sisters Creek Park. The
annual event is a long-standing tradition
and free event for residents of the
Jacksonville area. More than 1,000 boats
will fish the week-long event for over
$500,000 in'prizes.
Annually, the tournament attracts
approximately 30,000 spectators who
watch the weigh-in and enjoy the festiv-
ities. Favorite attractions include the
Food Festival, the KidZone, a free play
area for kids ages 3 to 14; the spacious
Liars' Tent, featuring live entertainment
and the Boatique exhibit area, offering a
variety of unique merchandise.
As in the past, the week-long festivities
will be capped off with a fabulous fire-
works display sponsored by the City of
Jacksonville.
Entertainment this year begins Friday
with a live DJ from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
_.nder the Liar's Tent. At 8 p.m., singer:


Keadie Higginbotham will perform, fol-
lowed by popular classic rock trio the
George Aspinall Band at 8:30 p.m.
Saturday's entertainment lineup
includes special guest Joey McLain and
music from the Swingin' Medallions.
The fireworks display is set for 10 p.m.
followed by more live music from the
Swingin' Medallions.
The Junior Angler Tournament is
scheduled for Tuesday, July 17, with a
captains' meeting July 16 at 7 p.m. If a
parent or guardian has entered the gen-
eral GJKT, kids can fish the junior event
for $10.
First-place prize is a 15-foot Carolina
Skiff JV15 with 25-h.p. Mercury engine
plus a Loadmaster trailer. Weigh-in on
Tuesday opens at 2 p.m.
Each participant will receive a t-shirt,
bag and rod/reel combo courtesy of Fish
Florida.
Additionally, Captain Don Dingman,
of television's Hook the Future program,
will conduct an all-kids clinic on
Monday and Saturdayiof theitourament


week.
The clinic is slated to include five sta-
tions for kids to participate in hands-on
activities. Each station is about 15 to 20
minutes in length and will cover cast
netting, fishing techniques, knot tying,
fishing ethics and casting.
The KidZone, which is open for sever-
al hours each day during tournament
week, features water slides and bounce
houses, fishing for prizes, fish tac toe,
make and take arts and crafts, face paint-
ing, clowns and more.
The GJKT now has two boat classifica-
tions, 23 Class and Ultra Class. All Boats
will compete for one of three "Big Fish"
prizes and each boat will also compete in
one of two divisions based upon the
Length Over All (L.O.A.) of the boat as
stated on the boat's state registration.
Boats not registered by a state govern-
ment agency may be subject to a physi-
cal examination by the GJKT Rules
Committee. Boats must fish in the divi-
sion that is defined by the L.O.A. or
examination. A boat will compete in the


23 Class so long as the L.O.A. of the boat
does not exceed 23 feet 11 inches. A boat
will compete in the Ultra Class so long as
the L.O.A. of the boat is 24 feet or greater.
Boat classification changes may only be
made prior to the start of fishing on the
first day.
In addition to Big Fish prizes, the Ultra
and 23 Classes will be competing in an
aggregate format, which is designed to
reward skill as well as luck. Boats are
allowed to weigh one fish per day and
the total aggregate weight over the two
days of fishing will determine the win-
ners. Boats competing in either division
can win the Big Fish portion of the prize
structure.
This change is intended to keep the
anglers more aggressive on the second
day and keep the drama going until the
Send of weigh-in on Friday. Boats may
only win one prize in these divisions. If a
boat places in more than one category, it
will automatically be sorted to the posi-
tion of greatest value. In any circum-
stances, only one prize will be awarded.

week watching the weather
for the weekends. We just try
to go out and catch some
decent fish."
This year brings new chal-
lenges to the Southbound
crew. They've already placed
first of the Class of 23 in the*
St. Mary's Kingfish Classic and
added a fourth-place finish in
the Two Way Tournament.
And the team has a sponsor
this year too in
Enhancecompanies.com, a
Jacksonville-based business.
The crew will fish in the VIP
Tournament next Monday
and again in the general tour-
nament later in the week.
They also plan to fish in all
the main tournaments again
ad are currently second in the
Class of 23 in District 4.
"It should be a pretty good
week for us," Bryan said of the
Kingfish Tournament. "Our
goal this year is to just break
even. If we can do that, we'll
be happy."
But can it compare to the
year to team had in 2006?
"That's the best year I'll ever
have in my lifetime," Bryan
said. "That's for sure."


Where's

Wimpy?

Wimpy Sutton's fishing
column is not currently
available as Sutton is recU-
perating at home after a
recent hospitalization. He
will soon resume reporting
on the local fishing scene.

A -Star time is the so-
called halfway point of
the regular season and
the playoffs. At this sitting
things look good for manager
John-Shoemaker and the- --.
Jacksonville Suns, but fans
shouldn't celebrate yet.
The boys of summer at the
Ball Grounds finished a strong
second in the first half, and at
the break for the All-Star show-
case are.rolling full-steam
toward a first-place finish for
the second half. This is fine if
the talent in pitching, hitting
and fielding can stay as-it is,
but that's the rub.
Who knows who will be
called by the Dodgers for "pro-
motion" to Triple-A Las Vegas
at any time?
The Peter Bragans just
about the best owners in the
game today, minors or majors
- would like to sing that old
song, "Stay as Sweet as You
Are, Don't Let a Thing Ever
Change You. Stay As Sweet as
You Are, Don't Let a Soul
Rearrange You."
But it's doubtful whether the
Dodgers would listen. Players
get hurt and have to be
replaced. The lower-league
teams get raided, no matter
what they might need. That's
just baseball.
Shoemaker is a fine baseball
manager. He's good with strat-
egy and he's good at handling
men. However, Shoemaker is
no magician. If the Suns were


Z9 1


REX EDMONDSON
PRESS BOX


to lose, say, catcher A.J. Ellis or
complete handyman catcher-
infielder-you name it Alberto
Concepcion, just as he's going
bananas hitting everything in
sight (including hitting for the
cycle Saturday night at
Carolina), there's no 9-1-1 for
Shoemaker to call.
If the manager loses pitchers
such as Justin Orenduff or
Mike Magrew, both of whom
are just coming into their own
after getting healthy again, or
fine reliever Jonathan Meloan,
maybe it won't be a disaster
but it will hurt badly.
The same can be said about
shortstop Chin Lung Hu (pro-
nounced "Who"), simply
among the top hitters in the
Southern League right now.
Ditto for Anthony Raglani, the
Suns left fielder. "Rags" goes
on those home run binges reg-


ularly and his bat has been the
closest Jacksonville has had to
a longball threat until
Concepcion got hot. Whatever
they're doing, it seems to be
working. Other Suns should
Strytit. . :. .
Not to wish evil things on
the Suns, goodness knows, but
it's a long til 'til Septemrber
and anything can happen. The
shadows of Las Vegas can
eclipse Jacksonville at any
time.
Shoemaker has already lost
infielder Marshall McDougall,
the former Florida State star
who now plays for the 51s in
Vegas, John Lindsay has
departed and so has reliever
Wesley Wright. We rejoice in
their promotion but it would
be nice if that was the Suns'
quota to feed the 51s for the
rest of the season.
Among the biggest losses
this year was one who never
even got started. The Suns
have been without the services
of left-hander Scott Elbert .
since spring due to his shoul-
der. The Dodgers' first round
draft pick of 2004 joined
Jacksonville in mid-season last
year and won six games, strik-
ing out 76.
The scouting report on
Elbert says his fastball is 90-92
mph and can even reach 96.
"A fierce competitor," says
Dodgers manager Grady Little,
who sees the pitcher reaching
the Los Angeles parent club by
next year. Elbert won't be over


his shoulder surgery this year,
but what a difference he might
have made for the Suns.
It's past tense now, but the-
Suns had a rousing month of.
June, finishing with a league-
best record of 22-7, includingrai
12-game winning streak.
Jacksonville also had the best
team batting mark at .28Q as
well as the lowest team earned
run average in the Southern
League at 3.27.
That, friends and neighbors,
is how you win pennants. But
don't tell the Dodgers they'll
raid the.cupboard again.

Suns a part.of MLB's
All-Star Week
More congratulations to our
man Chin Lung Hu, the short-
stop having a monster year,
and to Shoemaker for making
the World Team festivities dur-
ing the majors' All-Star week.
Hu also represented his
Taiwan team in the 2006
Futures Game.
In case you missed it,
Alberto Concepcion hit for the
cycle last Saturday night.up in
Carolina double, triple and
homer in his first four at-bats,
added a single and drove in a
mere five runs for Jacksonville.
First Sun to do that trick since
1998.
It's not a shock that Barry
Bonds didn't want to compete
in the All-Star Game's Home
Run Derby, you know, that 15-
hour spectacle that ESPN pro-
motes as if it's the best sport-


Golfer survives gator attack


ing event on the planet. We
really can't blame Barry. He's
already the self-proclaimed'
greatest and who can compete
with that?
Maybe they should have just
,-called the whole thing off and
given viewers a good, solid six
-hours of Barry Bonds up close
and personal..

50-year-old Tennessee
man lost a golf ball into
a lake and nearly lost his
arm in the process when he
was attacked by an 11-foot alli-
gator on the Lake Venice Golf
Course.
The gator grabbed the man's
arm, and pulled him into the
water. The man, Bruce Burger,
managed to free himself by
punching the gator in the eye
with his free arm, and the ani-
mal eventually relaxed his grip.
Another golfer drove him
back to the clubhouse for med-
ical treatment. He was later-
released without serious injury.
Later, it took seven Fish and
Wildlife officers an hour to
trap the alligator, which mea-
sured 10 feet, 11 inches. Club
officials noted that golfers
should always be careful
around lakes, and noted that
there was a "Beware of
Alligator" sign posted at the
lake because the large gator
was known to hang out there.
Alligator attacks fortunately
are not common. If someone is

attacked however, surviving
can depend on an immediate
reaction. Alligators can stay
underwater for long periods of
time, drowning their prey.
Simply trying to pull away
may incite the gator to go into
a "death roll" and increase the
likelihood of the limb being
torn off, or of the victim
drowning.
The first method of survival
would be to try to attack the


gator's eyes, punching, grab-
bing and clawing. The nostrils
are also sensitive and poking
may cause the animal to
release its grip.
Crocodilians have a flap of
tissue behind the tongue-that
covers their throats when they
submerge in water. This flap
prevents water from flowing
into their throats and hence
prevents the crocodile from
drowning when its mouth is
open.
If your arm or leg is stuck in
a crocodile's mouth, you may
be able to pry this valve down.
Water will then flow into the
crocodile's throat, and animal
will most likely let you go.
Hard strikes to this valve may
also cause the animals to
release you.

Doctor visits increase
Hospital and doctor visits in
the United States have
increased 20 percent over the
past five years, according to
- statistics published by the
Centers for Disease Control.
One problem however is that


while the number of doctor
visits is increasing the number
of doctors available to see these
patients has not gone up as
rapidly, creating longer wait
times for appointments, as well
as longer waits in the emergen-
cy rooms.
Many feel that the primary
reason visits are up is that
more Americans than ever are
getting older, and getting into
common ailments seen with
age.

Seafood favorites to savor


Summer is always good for a trip to the
beach just to cool off. It is also an excellent
chance to educate children about foods that
come from the ocean and show them how to
prepare a seafood supper for the family.
To make it fun, while you help them cook
share some seafood trivia. For instance, ask
them if they know fish really do sleep and
saltwater fish must drink seawater to keep
from getting dehydrated? And, if they are
aware medical research indicates eating
seafood twice or more per week is good for
their heart?

recipes. Emphasize safety prior to beginning
and, of course, closely supervise each step
along the way.

Heavenly Broiled Fish
2 pounds skinned Florida fish fillets,
fresh or frozen
2 tablespoons Florida lemon juice
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons Florida green onion,
chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash liquid hot pepper sauce
Thaw fish if frozen. Place fillets in a single
layer on a well-greased bake-and-serve dish
(15" x 10"). Brush fillets with lemon juice
and let stand for 10 minutes. Combine
remaining ingredients and set aside. Broil fil-
lets about 4 inches from source of heat for 6
to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when
tested with a fork. Fish cooks quickly about
10 minutes per inch of thickness. Remove
from oven and spread with cheese mixture.
Return to the oven and broil 2 to 3 minutes
longer or until lightly browned. Yield: 6

1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Florida lemon or lime
juice
1/4 teaspoon tarragon

Grilled Shrimp Kebabs
1 1/2 pounds Florida shrimp, peeled and
deveined
8 wooden skewers
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Florida orange juice
1 teaspoon ground Florida oregano
Thread shrimp onto wooden skewers. Use
two skewers per kebab to make turning easi-
er. One skewer should go through the meaty
part and one skewer goes through the tail.
Put as many shrimp on each kebab as possi-
ble, leaving part of the skewer exposed at
both ends so you will have something to
hold on to. Brush the grill rack with olive oil
prior to placing kebabs over the heat.
Combine the remaining ingredients in an 8-
ounce container with a lid. Cover and shake
well.
Place the kebabs on the rack over the heat.
Brush frequently with the oil mixture. Grill
until shrimp are tender and no longer
translucent in the center, approximately 6-8
minutes on each side. Yield: 4 servings.
