$95,000for sculpture?

AB split on investing $45k

In Search ofAtlantis art

A $95,000 bronze sculpture could be erected in
Atlantic Beach if the City Commission approves the
release of a previously allocated art fund, according
to officials.
The Commission discussed the possibility of
releasing $45,000 from the city's art fund which is
budgeted for the current fiscal year, but has not yet
been spent for a bronze sculpture that depicts a girl
riding a sea turtle.
The sculpture, titled "In Search of Atlantis", would
be located at the western end of the 300 block of
Plaza Drive in Frasier Park, at the five-way stop,
according to a proposed contract.
The $45,000 comes from bed tax funds and has
been previously allocated to purchase art, according
to City Manager Jim Hanson.
The city's bed tax account currently has approxi-
mately $230,000, according to Finance Director

To get planned

overpass built

A county attempt tb' eliminate a pro.-
posed overpass at Kernan and Atlantic
boulevards should be strongly opposed by
the Beaches, according to the Beaches'
elected representative on the Jacksonville
City Council.
Previously, a similar bill, proposed by
former Jacksonville Councilor Lynette Self,
was withdrawn before a final vote could be
taken on a council bill to kill the overpass
But Bill Bishop, who replaced Self on the
Jacksonville City Council, has rekindled
the .bill, according to. Councilor Art
Graham, who is asking the Beach cities to
help him keep the planned overpass from
being axed.
"I think it is time to get the Beaches and
West Beaches residents involved in writing
e-mails and letters," Graham said in an e-
mail Monday to the Beach mayors.
If Bishop's bill is passed, the proposed
overpass would be eliminated and instead
a median U-turn design would be used as
an alternative solution.
The proposed overpass project would
allow drivers to pass over the Keman inter-
The proposed overpass was voted as one
of the highest priorities of Beaches citizens

Citing opposition to Iraq war,

AB's Jamie Fletcher votes no

funding for Sea & Sky event

Opposition to the war in Iraq led an Atlantic Beach City
Commissioner Monday to reject supporting the Sea and
Sky Spectacular, an air show planned for November at the
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher cast the sole vote against
an interlocal agreement between the Beaches and
Jacksonville. The pact governs the air show event.
Fletcher told commissioners that he would not support
the agreement because he is "morally and politically
opposed to the war in Iraq."
He said that since the air show involves the military, he
would not lend his support to the show..
Commissioner Mike Borno, a Navy veteran, said that
Fletcher's comments were "immaterial to the issue" and,

while everyone has a
right to express iopin-
ions, commissioners
should stay focused on
the issues' at hand.
Resident Jonathan
Daugherty also spoke in .
opposition to the show, fo
explaining that from Jamie Fletcher
the information he has
gathered, the event is supposed to promote business,
tourism and the military, but that local businesses have
said it is their slowest time of the year.
The air show is planned for Nov. 3-4. It is held at the
Beaches on alternate years and at NAS Jacksonville when it
is not here. The show typically features the Blue Angels,' a
Navy precision flying team, as well as other aircraft.

Out with the old bridge, in with the new (but old-looking) bridge

Eighty years after opening in the :

peared from view. -
Parts of the structure began to be;."
removed even before May 2006,
when the temporary replacement
bridge opened, linking downtown .
St. Augustine to Anastasia Island'
along State Road A1A.
The old bridge, which opened to .
traffic in 1927, was listed in 1982
on the National Register of Historic
It is undergoing a $76 million
restoration project conducted by
the Florida Department of
Transportation, and the five-year
project is about half way through.
After much public discussion .
about whether the bridge should .
be replaced or stored, work began l
in February 2005 delayed until --
after the Super Bowl was held in
Early on, the structure's signature -
marble lions on the west side of the
span were removed "to a secure ...,
location far away from the con-
struction site," according to the
online magazine of the FDOT.
After the temporary span
opened, decorative and structure .. .

a molten zinc compound, allowing them to be used in the restored bridge, the magazine
The project designer has said that the newly restored Bridge of Lions will actually look
more like the original than it has in recent years because light fixtures and railings that were
replaced decades ago will be replaced with replicas of the 1927 fixtures and railings.
The DOT says the restored bridge should'last 75 to 100 years.

Principal: 'No choice' but for high school at Davis Park to open 2008


Some students who will be
attending the new Ponte
Vedra high school scheduled
to open next year may have a
say in naming the school.
The opinions of student
leaders from Landrum Middle
and Nease High schools, as
well as some adults who have
active roles at the schools,
will be sought in determining
the name, colors and mascot
for the new school, the princi-
pal said Monday.
The principal, Craig
Speziale, talked about the
naming process outside a
meeting of the Ponte Vedra
Beaches Coalition, where he
talked about the school and
answered questions from the
He said he will assemble a
committee of no more than
30 persons after a Sept. 19
town hall meeting he is
scheduled to conduct at
Landrum, the feeder middle
school for the high school
being built off Palm Valley
Road west of the Intracoastal
In addition to the student
leaders, he said, the commit-
tee will consist of members of
the schools' PTOs and school
advisory committees.
"I'll get a committee for rec-
ommending names, school
colors, and a mascot to send
to the School Board," Speziale

said. The School Board has
the final say on the name.

held at the Ponte Vedra Beach

substantially completed by
the beginning of next sum-
"There is no choice other
than for it to be ready in time
for school next year," said the
principal, who was an admin-
istrator for Dade County
schools before taking the job
with St. Johns County.
The school's location near
the park and preserve put it in
a good spot for environmen-
tal study, Speziale has said in
the past.
"We will have an academy
of biotechnology and medical
research," he told Coalition

The biotechnology acade-
my will be partnered with the
University of Florida and will
focus on environmental tech-
nology, he said.
The medical academy will
be associated with the Mayo
Clinic and Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville. There will also
be an international business
and marketing academy.
He said the class schedule to
be used at the high school has
not been determined, adding
that both standard schedul-
ing, with seven, 45-minute
periods, and block schedul-
ing, with fewer, 90-minute
periods, have pros and cons.
Speziale said he is amenable
to Nease's scheduling a
blend of blocks and shorter
"It's something I've thought
about, and I've spoken with
other schools about it as
well," he said.
Audience members asked
how students would make the
transition to the new school
and whether languages
offered at Landrum would
also be offered at the new
Acknowledging that aca-
demic performance can
decline when transitioning to
a new school, Speziale said
the goal is to "eliminate that
fall off as much as possible."

aspects of the school, which is expected to open in August 2008. To his right is School Board

a "seamless transition
between schools."
Languages to be offered
depend on student interest,
he said.
School Board member Bill
Fehling of Ponte Vedra Beach
said this year's Nease juniors
who are zoned for the new

school will have the choice of
finishing high school at Nease
or at the new school.
Some students will.finish at
Nease because they are
enrolled in International
Baccalaureate, a vigorous aca-
demic program, or Navy
Junior Reserve Office Training

Corps, both of which will stay
at Nease.
Population zoning for the
new school has not been
finalized, although school
officials have said students in
Ponte Vedra Beach east of
the Intracoastal will, be
zoned into the school.

The location of the former American Bicycle Company is demolished Monday. Plans for the
property at 220 First St. include demolishing the current building and rebuilding a 2-story struc-
ture that would have a retail shop on the first floor and some type of dance studio on the second
floor, according to Community Development Director Amanda Askew.

Eatery on water by marina

gets OK for outdoor seating

Live music not allowed

Outdoor seating will be permitted at a new
restaurant adjacent to Beach Marine at the
Intracoastal Waterway despite accounts that
the business violated the city's noise ordi-
The Jacksonville Beach Planning
Commission Monday granted conditional use
approval for Fast Boys Wings to utilize an
existing deck for outside seating at 2309 Beach
SBoulevard in the Beach Marine complex.
The city's Land Development Code requires
conditional use approval to operate an out-
door seating area with the condition that no
live or amplified music be permitted.
Property agent Michael Herzberg represent-
ing FBW of Dockside, Inc. said any noise gen-
erated by the restaurant and deck would be
consistent with the marina use and surround-
ing areas.
Three residents, including two members of
the boating community, spoke in favor of the
outdoor seating request.
Jacksonville resident Bob Weiland said he
looks forward to having a place to eat along
the Intracoastal Waterway since many of the
businesses have either closed or privatized
"It will be nice to have a place that we can
go and tie up [the boat] and get there to eat,"
he said.
Ron Reynolds said he and his wife live
aboard their boat at Beach Marine and would
enjoy an outdoor environment for dining with
their grandchildren.
"Families can take their little ones out to a
restaurant and let them run around without
disturbing other diners who want a more quiet

experience," reynolds said.
Darrell Shields, who is one of the closest res-
idents to the marina on 18th Street North, said
he "had no problem with outdoor seating pro-
vided there is no amplified music."
Herzberg responding to whether music was
allowed on the deck prior to seeking outdoor
seating approval said there was "no music
whatsoever on the property."
Planning Commissioner Paul Schmidt after
conducting a site investigation of the property
on Aug. 26 said,music was audible on the out-
side deck.
"I do not like tosee people take advantage of
the city of Jacksonville Beach," he said. "I feel
like this is a slap in the face to this commission
and the city."
Schmidt expressed concerns that a similar
situation could occur with the Labor Day hol-
iday weekend approaching.
"I don't like what happened last weekend,"
he said. "I'm in favor of outdoor seating but
[allowing outdoor music] a day before this was
scheduled to come before the commission is
not right."
Herzberg conceded that it was possible for
an. employee or other staff member to have
allowed such a occur without
knowledge of the city's ordinance but prom-
ised to review the policy with his client.
"There was no intent to slap the city or the
commission in the face," he said. "I will speak
to them."
Senior Planner Bill Mann said that the city's
new special magistrate in place to handle code
enforcement cases and noise ordinance viola-
tions will help put more teeth into the rules in
"That remedy is fairly quick," Mann said.
Herzberg questioned whether the parame-
ters of the outdoor seating ordinance also lim-
ited acoustic guitar players on the deck.
Said commissioner Lee Dorson, "No music.
That pretty much covers it."

NB's last sign fight a fiasco

To the editor:
I see Neptune Beach is think-
ing about maybe starting a legal
fight regarding the artistic and
very colorful mural on the
moving companies building at
1501 Atlantic Blvd.
In the same issue they are
worried about a contributor to
the Sea & Sky Air Show which
many people enjoy.
Neptune Beaches last "sign
fight" was a wasteful fiasco

against the "Solantic" sign
which cost us taxpayers over
$30,000. I really hope they get
their priorities straight before
this happens again.
I urge folks to check the
painting out and if you like it
and feel it brightens up an oth-
erwise drab area drop in and
sign the petition.

After reading the article in.

the mural he had painted on
his building at 1501 Atlantic

found myself cringing as to
what our local government's
next move will be and hoping
that for once, our government
officials can resolve a matter
amicably without lawsuits and
without wasting my taxpayer's
While in my personal opin-
ion I would agree with Mr.

building is a "mural", I have
read the definition of "sign" in
the Code (Sec. 27-576) and I
can understand the City's posi-
tion. However, if Mr. Quest is
willing to work with the City by
applying for a permit and even
if he has to seek a variance,
then it is time for the City to
reciprocate and work with busi-
ness owners and not against
them. How much of our,
money is the City going to
squander on this matter? Are
we going to find ourselves in
another lawsuit? I see signs (no
pun intended) pointing to
repeats of the Solantic and Wal-
Mart situations.
What I really do not under-
stand is why isn't our govern-
ment trying to entice business-
es to our community instead of

treating them like criminals?
How many empty storefronts
do we need in our community
before it is going to occur to our
government we need to make
some changes in our attitude
towards businesses? Please
remember this...Mr. Quest
opened his business in our
community in one of those
aforementioned vacant store-
fronts and now our govern-
ment could possibly run him
out of our community...for
what and why?
I am not suggesting that busi-
nesses should not be held
accountable to abide by the
Code; however from my inter-
pretation of the story, Mr. Quest
did not intentionally try to do
anything illegal it was actually
a gesture of love for his wife. It
appears our Code does allow
provisions in which some rules
can have exceptions made to
them (i.e. variance) and if Mr.
Quest is actively working with
the City on this matter, then
the City needs to acknowledge
his efforts and work with him
I love my beach town and I
hope our government will con-
sider all aspects of this matter
which will result in a reason-
able solution for all involved
parties, including its residents.

To clarify district representatives
S f-.. -. ;*," : ^ .-' ,' ',@.*" --* ]:'; ,/ .

To the editor:
Kelly Elmore is a friend, but
to clarify the district representa-
tion referendum for our citi-
zens, I write this letter in
response to his letter to the edi-
tor of August 24.
The Ballot Title reads:
"Amending Sec. 5 of the
Charter, to provide for four (4)
of the city commissioners to
continue to be elected at large,
but from districts, to be created

by ordinance, and requiring
that each commissioner reside
within the district from which
he or she is elected."
This is analogous to the five
At Large City Council men and

didate must live in the district

Rex is a great read in the paper

To the editor:
I must disagree with the
recent letter to the editor sug-
gesting that The Leader find a
new sports writer.
Not only is Rex Edmondson a
living legend in sports journal-
ism here on the first coast, he
writes "old style" in that he adds
a perspective that most current
writers can't compare to. He is a
firsthand witness of so many of
the big and small events that
have defined our community's
incredible sports culture.
I have gotten to know Mr.
Edmondson through my asso-

ciation with The Players. I have
been fascinated spending time
with him over the years to hear
about stories about his coverage
of football, baseball and even
the old championship
wrestling matches!! Rex, like
Bobby Bowden, has earned his
place to pursue his profession
as long as he wants. I for one
will look forward to reading his.

I must be a good golfer, I hit

the ball more than anybody!

after all the years I
lived in golf rich
Ponte Vedra, I never
took up the game. Last
month on my vacation in
Chicago, where they play 3
months out of the year, my
two sons got me helplessly
hooked. "Bend your knees

ing playing the back 9, I
was bordering on amateur,
thanks in part to the brace I
picked up for my left arm at
Walgreens. "Dad, you're
actually using a putter
before your 8th stroke!"
The insanity didn't stop
in the Windy City. I have
been trying desperately to
improve my game since I
came back home. I have
learned the hard way that
golf spelled backwards is

golfers, you will occasional-
ly hear some off color lan-

every golf joke ever told, in
your first month of play.

says "Buddy, are you OK?"

He yelled, "No I'm any-
thing but OK! I'm suing
you for $5,000!"
The Mandarin golfer shot
back, "I said fore!"
The victim replied, "I'll
take it!"
Yesterday I was playing
on the 9th hole when I hit
my ball into the South's,
deepest sand trap. I wasn't
about to take the penalty.
Instead, I slid down with
iron in hand, to get that
ball out. Five minutes later
I climbed out and said to
my buddies, "Not bad for
two strokes!"
One of the guys shook his
head, "Two strokes? I heard

Until the mid 1960's Ponte
Vedra was bounded by the
Duval County line to the
north, the Atlantic Ocean to
the east, somewhere around
the old Oasis bar to the
south, and what is now A1A
to the west. New A1A was
completed in the mid 1960's
and skirted existing Ponte
Vedra. South Ponte Vedra
was generally considered to
be both sides of A1A from
the Oasis to the Guana Dam.
Palm Valley was in the
same postal zone as Ponte
Vedra 32082 but no one
was under an illusion the
Palm Valley was. in Ponte

Vedra. Palm Valley was
bounded by new A1A to the
east, Solano Road to the
north, the Intracoastal
Waterway to the west, and
Mickler's (pronounced

to the south. To call Nocatee
and even Palm Valley, Ponte
Vedra is a misnomer propa-
gated by real estate agents
and development interests
in order to make money off
of the Ponte Vedra name, I
am surprised that the aristo-
crats on Ponte Vedra
Boulevard (old A1A) haven't
spoken up. All tKe new resi-
dents in "Ponte Vedra" are
going to want access to
"their" beach, that the Ponte

want so desperately to keep

It's bad enough that the
development industry has
co-opted our local govern-
ments through campaign
donations, (for instance, 99
percent of the exceptions to
the 2010 Comprehensive
Growth Plan have been
approved by the Jacksonville
City Council -Ron
Littlepage), but misnaming
whole geographic areas adds
insult to injury. Palm Valley
is Palm Valley (or Cabbage
Swamp), and Nocatee is
Diego Plains (or D-Dot

interested to know how
Nocatee got designated as
Ponte Vedra.

To the editor:
With the budget in its final
stages, the County's financial
management team and this
Board of County
Commissioners deserve
whatever recognition they
are getting and frankly, the
applause should be deafen-
ing. In large part, a new cul-
ture is taking hold.
This County Commission,
by its early moves such as the
hiring freeze and zero-based
cost analysis, created condi-
tions where the County is
absorbing the $23 million hit
from the first round of the
State's property tax reform
and with a $13 million
increase in General Fund

reserves, is prepared for the
second hit should the jumbo

approved by the voters in
January. The good news is
that the BCC acted well
before Tallahassee's plans
were known, not in reaction
to the Capital.

really the spine of the

Philately gets the stamp of approval in PV

Bob Ashmead of Ponte Vedra
Beach started collecting stamps
when he was 5, in the early
"My grandfather got me
interested, and I've never quit,"
Ashmead said last week of
stamp collecting, known as phi-
Ashmead and Chuck
Grossman, also of Ponte Vedra
Beach, met Aug. 15 at the
Players Community Senior
Center on Landrum Lane for
the first meeting of a stamp
Grossman, who initiated the
club, said he started his collec-
tion with stamps his father had
collected "as a little boy in an
orphanage in Cleveland." Some
of them dated to the early
1920s, Grossman said.
"It's a good hobby, particular-
ly for grandparents, if they
want to get their grandchildren
interested in something they
can do together," said
"It's educational [and] gives
you a history of the United
States if you collect U.S. stamps.
And you can see what other
countries print."
For example, the Inverted
Jenny stamp an error show-

ing a biplane flying upside
down was issued in 1918 at
the start of air mail service.
A slice of world history is
embedded in a set of stamps
that show German athletes at
several Olympic events. The set
was issued in 1936, when Hitler
hosted the Olympics in a show
of "German superiority,"
according to
Stamps from around the
world led to Ashmead's career
choice, he said.
"I picked up such a love from
stamps for things around the
world that I became a social
studies teacher, specializing in
geography," said Ashmead.
He said he taught at
Sandalwood High School in
Jacksonville for more than 20
years and also taught in Africa
and Papua, New Guinea.
"More people are turning to
stamp collecting these days, in
their older years," said
Ashmead, who moved to
Florida in 1943.
"In their retirement years,
they're going back to the hobby
they had as children, and col-
lecting stamps once again. But
it's hard to get young people
interested," he said.
Grossman said he gave
stamps to his own children and
grandchildren, adding, "But it
didn't really catch on with any

of those youngsters."
Part of the problem in com-
petition from other hobbies,
Ashmead said.
"We didn't have television.
When the baseball card and
that kind of stuff started, it took
a lot of people away," Ashmead
"Today, youngsters have
computers on their minds."
Ashmead, who has become a

stamp dealer, showed one of his
prized possessions: a Twopenny
Blue from Great Britain, one of
the first two postage stamps
issued (see trivia box).
Although Grossman and
Ashmead were the only two at
last week's meeting, Grossman
plans to meet the third
Wednesday of every month at
the Players Community Senior

"You'd think there would be
more stamp collectors in this
population of 50,000,"
Ashmead said of the Ponte
Vedra area.
Anyone interested in joining
the stamp collectors club can
call Grossman at 280-4294. The
next meeting is scheduled 1
p.m. Sept. 19.

Beach Sunset, which meets at 6
p.m. Tuesday at Sawgrass
Country Club Golf clubhouse,
has been honored for its
exchange program.
Last year, the club was award-

club for youth in the United

Club members kicked off the
upcoming year in a welcoming

dents in Marsh Landing Aug.
"All the students are inter-

they are all quality children,"

"These children are probably
the bravest' children you will
ever meet in your life."
Shaw flew for 28 hours from
India for her first visit to the
United States. She was born in
Capetown, South Africa, and
was raised and schooled in the

exchange program are more
mature because we can make
decisions without our parents.
"You get to socialize and you
lend the hand to bridge between
two countries," she said.
"I chose the US because it is
the only superpower nation left,
and I wanted to see all the tech-
nology and the lifestyle of the
people here."
Since her arrival July 31, Shaw
said, she has enjoyed going to
the beach and watching the
launching of the space shuttle.
She has also noticed similarities
and differences in the cultures
of teenagers from India and
"We are more or less 'the
same, but we are not as outspo-
ken, and here when you're 15 or
16 you already have a boyfriend

or a girlfriend," Shaw said.
"There is more of a -barrier
between girls and boys in India,
and we are more career-orient-
ed. We have to choose what our
primary schooling will be for
11th and 12th grade.
"I already chose biology so I
can study medicine."
Shaw is also a huge Harry
Potter fan and said she is excited
to read the seventh book, which
was not yet available in India.
She was also pleased that the
Bresnahan family waited for her
arrival so they could all go to see
the new movie together. They
had corresponded via e-mail
prior to her stay.
Christensen arrived Aug. 11
for her first exchange program
and visit to the United States.
"I chose the US because it
sounds like such a fantastic

country," she said. "And from
what I've seen so far, it is."
Other than attending school
and experiencing life as
teenagers in Florida, the 30
exchange students will also
attend a sea camp in the Keys in
February and will take trips to
Disney World and Sea World.
Some also will take day trips
to explore the Jacksonville area,
such as the Cummer Museum of
Art & Gardens, with different
members of the rotary club.
"We want them to experience
little bits and pieces of the com-
munity so they really get a feel
for what it's like to live here,"
Nancy Bresnahan said.
"In our [rotary] district we
have a three-day orientation so
the exchange students them-
selves begin forming friend-
ships. So not only are they
learning about the United States
they are learning about all the
other countries arnd .cutl'ures

Taylor Bresnahan became
.interested in visiting Germany
after a German exchange stu-
dent, Olga, lived with his family
two years ago. He studied a year
of German at Nease to prepare
for the application process and
interview and was selected to
participate. The cost is $4,000
per student for the year.
"I want to meet new friends
and have fun," he said. "They
go to school Monday through

going to be a challenge," he

"If Rotary could do it they

that goes on because we would

The announcement came Monday, the same

The Sheriffs Office joins thousands of other
law enforcement and highway safety agencies

we will arrest you. No exceptions. No excuses.
"We will be out in force conducting sobriety

undercover officers to get more drunk drivers

Since 1847, Benjamin
Franklin and George Washington
have appeared on more stamps
than any other Americans.
,The Elvis Presley 1993
stamp is the most popular U.S.
stamp based on sales, with at
least 124 million stamps saved.
Before prepaid postage
stamps were developed in the
19th century, recipients paid for
delivery of letters. But elaborate
codes were often used to convey
meaning on the outside of letters,
thus saving the recipient the cost
of paying for delivery.
Some of the codes and their
meanings are: stamp upside
down on left corner means "I love
you;" stamp upside down on right
corner means 'Write no more;"
stamp diagonally across the left-
hand corner means "I hate you."
Postal carriers originally had

she motioned to the driver to let

Italian Christmas dinner raises funds


of Christmas last

There was a little bit
weekend at the
Beaches, complete
with holiday food and deco-
Anne Wiggins, Youth
Ministry Direttor at St.
Paul's by-the-Sea Episcopal
Church, hosted a traditional
Italian Christmas Eve dinner

to raise funds for the youth
group's upcoming mission
to Cienfuegos, Cuba.
The dinner was called the
Feast of the Seven Fishes.
The trip to Cienfuegos is
planned for November. It is
an effort to re-establish the
relationship between St.
Paul's and their sister
church there, St. Paul's
"The trip is the first after
a five-year break in what
had become a series of regu-
lar visits to St. Paul's in
Cienfuegos," said Wiggins.
"Reestablishing our rela-
tionship with our compan-
ion parish is a high priority
with Rev. Penny (Pfab) and
she is accompanying us on
this mission."

Seven Fishes Dinner, one of St. Paul's by-the-Sea Episcopal
Church's mission dinners.

While the youth group
has been raising funds for
the trip since the beginning
. of the year, they will travel
to Cuba by charter flight
which is expensive, said
It has also taken extra
planning to make the trip
possible, including a special
license through the U.S.
Department of the Treasury
and visas through the
Cuban government.
The group hopes that the
proceeds from the Feast of
the Seven Fishes and other
upcoming Mission Dinners
will help them reach their
financial goal for the trip,
said Wiggins.

The Feast of the Seven
Fishes was the first of five
Mission Dinners planned for
August through October.
Wiggins and her husband,
Cecil, have hosted the holi-
day celebration for their
family and friends on
Christmas Eve for the past
three years.
Wiggins said that they
consider the dinner their
gift during the holidays to
family and friends. It has
been so well received that
she hoped it would be just
as popular as a fundraiser
for the youth group.
She explained that she
had learned about the
Italian tradition on a televi-

sion cooking show without
even realizing that a mem-
ber of her household had
celebrated the Feast of the
Seven Fishes many years
Wiggins, mother-in-law
Marie Imburgia Fesler is a
first-generation Italian
American. Her family, like
many Italian families, cele-
brated the eve of Christ's
birth with a meal of seven
fish or seafood dishes.
"The Feast of the Seven
Fishes possibly originated
from the Roman Catholic
tradition of avoiding meat
before Christmas.
Although the meaning'of
the number seven is a mys-
tery most believe it repre-
sents the seven sacra-
ments," said Wiggins.
"Some regions of Italy
require three courses (the
Trinity), nine courses (the
Trinity times three), 12
courses (the Apostles), 13
courses (the Apostles, plus
Jesus), or even 25 (for the
days in the Christmas sea-
Among the seafood dishes
Wiggins serves at her holi-
day event are her husband's
sesame tuna, shrimp or crab
salad, fried Calamari from a
local restaurant, a crab dip,
and fish in tomato sauce.
The focus is on the
seafood at the Feast of the
Seven Fishes so most side

Hand said Graham was his
"political hero" growing up.
A job writing speeches for a
politician who held the same

come true.
"The first thing Sen.

"When I said, 'Fletcher

lecture on Sen. Fletcher. He

"We all had breast cancer, we
all had the same surgeon, Dr.
Steven Smith. From the day I
was diagnosed to this point,'
my experience has been as
stress-free as it could possibly'
be because I had a team of
physicians who not only com-
municated with me but were
also very caring.
"I am cancer-free. That is the
most positive outcome,"
Jewett said.
Weinert said she was pleased
by the support she received.
"So many people stepped up
to the plate and came to my
assistance," she said. "At
Mayo, you are put into such a
compact, efficient system. It
makes you feel so confident,
because it seems like there's

this giant net under you."
A breast cancer patient sees a
variety of doctors surgeons,
oncologists, radiologists and
plastic surgeons.
"I didn't have to deal with
chemo or radiation, so those
doctors were very brief in my
circle," said Weinert. "But I
have dealt with the plastic sur-
geon the most because of
reconstruction. Sarv TerKonda
and his nurse assistant have
been absolutely aces."
Weinert has met with other
women with breast cancer and
has been asked for practical
"The doctors are so good at
helping you medically; they
just don't have the time to
help, you with practical things
about breast cancer," she said.
"If your diagnosis. is,

somebody else's,, they'll ask,
'Would you mind speaking to
so-and-so? Can she call you?'
We have started a kind of 'pay
it forward' network."
Jewett was the first to be
diagnosed. Aves and Weinert
found themselves sitting
together in the office of Drs.
TerKonda and Smith.
"We looked at each other
and said, 'What are you doing
here?,'" said Weinert. "I said,

Recipes: Wiggins' spaghetti with clam sauce

Cont. from A-8
kept fresh and light, she
Marie Imburgia Fesler's
recipe for Spaghetti with
Clam Sauce is one of the
highlights of the dinner and
was served at the Mission
Dinner as well. While this
dish is familiar to many peo-
ple, Wiggins said Fesler's
recipe is exceptional and
easy to prepare.
Good bread is always a
must at an Italian meal,
either used to enjoy the last
of the Clam Sauce or dipped
into an herbed oil mixture
made by Wiggins.
Caponatina, made from a
recipe in a Jacksonville
Italian American Club cook-
book, is one of the side dish-'
es at the Feast. Wiggins
makes the dish with sauteed
eggplant, olives and toma-
toes in an olive oil and wine
vinegar dressing.

The following some of the
recipes Anne Wiggins uses for
the Feast of the Seven Fishes.

Spaghetti with Clam

8-10 cloves garlic
one-third cup extra virgin
olive oil
2 6.5 oz. cans minced
1 8 oz. bottle clam juice
one-eighth to one-quarter
tsp. crushed red pepper
Dash salt
Fresh parsley, chopped
1 lb. pasta
Peel and coarsely chop gar-
lic cloves. Heat olive oil on
medium high in medium
sauce pan. When oil is hot,
add garlic and stir for a
minute and half but keep
from burning. Add juice
from two cans of clams (do
not add clams yet) and bot-
tle of claim juice and bring
to a boil. Turn down to

medium and add crushed red
pepper and salt to taste.
Simmer while preparing
water for pasta.
Add clams to the sauce at
the same time pasta is added
to water and simmer clams
on medium low while pasta
cooks. Add fresh parsley to
clams just before serving and
reserve some for garnish.
After pasta is drained, add
some of the juice from the
clam sauce to the pasta to
prevent it from sticking,
Sprinkle with parmesan or
Romano cheese. Enjoy with
a salad and hot bread.
You'll need the bread for
soaking up the extra clam
(Lucy Giardino's recipe
from the Italian American
Club of Jacksonville cook-
book that was printed in

then cube them)
S1 peck tomatoes (or 2-3

diced tomatoes)
4 bunches celery, cut up
Salt and pepper
1 cup sugar
2 cups olive oil
1 lb. green ripe olives, pit-

2 cups wine vinegar
Fry eggplant in deep hot
olive oil in a deep pan;
drain. Strain tomatoes and
combine with olives, capers
and celery; boil and add sea-

Add vinegar wine and sugar
and cook until well blended;
combine with eggplant and,
while hot, fill hot sterile jars,

It can also be kept in the
refrigerator for several weeks.

*Optional: add one large
chopped onion and cook
with the eggplant.

grade-point average.
At Fletcher, he captained

the starters in practice," said
Hand, who at 6 feet 4 was 4
inches shorter than the start-

"I loved my role. My nick-
name was 'Lambier.' "
Hand grew up playing bas-

"I grew up at the. Beaches. I
attended Seabreeze
Elementary, the old sixth
grade center and Fletcher
Junior High, where my mom
used to teach.
"I used to call Jarboe Park
'Basketball University',
because that's where I learned
to play the game."
Hand said he took his law
school studies.very seriously.
when he got to Gainesville.
At 27, he was all business.
"I treated law school like a
job," he added. "I was much
more directed. I had seen
laws being made and it was
nice to study the theoretical

be an important election in
Florida," said Hand, who
helped Sink claim.53.5 per-
cent of the vote.
"I wanted to be part of a

Artist Kristen Visbal of Delaware created "Sea Express," a bronze sculpture depicting a young boy on the back of a bottle nose
dolphin, as the centerpiece for the Jacksonville Beach Oceanfront Park in 2002.

Art: AB defers decision

Cont. from A-1
"We all know this is a tight
budget year, but this is money
that has been allocated previ-
ously, said Ray Coleman, a
member of the Atlantic Beach
Public Arts Commission.
"There's no way that anybody
could look at this statue and
not say that it is beautiful and
that it is art."
Other citizens spoke
against the proposed project
at Monday's meeting.
"Government has no busi-
ness sponsoring art," said
Jonathan Daugherty.
Commissioner Dezmond
Waters said that the sculpture
would be a positive addition
to the community because it
could add to tourism and it is
a piece of art "somewhat
requested by the citizens of
Atlantic Beach," he said.
He explained that the "fem-
inine" sculpture is symbolic
of the female athletes in the
community and is less mod-
em than the last sculpture the
Commission approved.
"This is a bargain. It's a
beautiful piece of art and
we're only paying half of it,"
he said.
He also explained that a
large number of citizens who
have "worked extremely hard
on this" would be disappoint-
"I think people expect some
continuity in government,"
Waters said.
However, Commissioner
Sylvia Simmons and Jamie
Fletcher were both opposed to
the project.
"I don't think we can afford

to spend this kind of money,"
Simmons said. "I have always
said this is a rich community.
Go out there from door to
door. Do some fundraising."
The Commission decided to
defer the issue until language
in the contract, which is cur-
rently between the city of
Jacksonville and the Atlantic
Beach Public Arts
Commission a non-profit
corporation is clarified and
additional paperwork is com-
"My thinking is that this
application is far from being
complete," said Mayor Don
The artist, Kristen Visbal,
also designed a sculpture of a
boy riding a dolphin and that
sculpture is on display in
Jacksonville Beach at the
oceanfront park at 6th
Avenue South.
The city of Jacksonville
Beach paid Visbal $72,030 for
the sculpture, although her
original price quote was
If Atlantic Beach approves
releasing money for the proj-
ect, Visbal is to receive a total
of $95,000 for the Atlantic
Beach sculpture.
The sculpture would be
crafted using a "lost wax" pro-
cedure, where the model is
made out of wax, covered in
bronze and then the wax is
melted, according to Paul
Parsons, a member of the
Atlantic Beach Public Arts
The sculpture's dimensions
would be 8x6x5 feet, accord-
ing to the proposed contract.

Kernan: Plans at risk

The Atlantic Beach City
Commission has previously
gone on record in favor of
the overpass, which is
expected to improve traffic
flow along busy Atlantic
Boulevard. At a meeting
Monday, commissioners
authorized Commissioner
Mike Borno to speak on the
Commission's behalf before
the Jacksonville City Council
to reiterate their position.
The Council was scheduled
to hold a public hearing
regarding the bill yesterday,
but the final vote will occur
at a .Sept. 11 meeting,
Graham said.
"Let's keep our ears to the
ground because we may need
to call out the troops for both
the Beaches and West
Beaches," Graham said.
According to the Kernan
Coalition, a group of home-
owner associations in the
area who want the overpass
built, the Sleiman Company,
which occupies three of four
quadrants at the intersection,
is the main proponent for a

grade-level intersection with
remote U-turns at Kernan
and Atlantic Boulevard as "all
of Sleimans' businesses would
be adversely affected by an
elevated road and inter-
change design."
Jim Osborn of the
Kensington Homeowner
Association said in a memo
to the coalition that he is
concerned a few businesses
are working against con-
structing 'the overpass,
which, he said, is the "best
solution for traffic flow on
two 6 lane roads crossing
each other."
Not all homeowners n the
West Beaches agree.
Sally Forbes, president, of
the Riverpoint/Monument
Landing Homeowner
.Association, said there are
plans other than an overpass
to consider.
"We should not sacrifice
our neighborhoods so that
people at the Beach can get
home sooner," Forbes said in
a note to the coalition.

Latkes and falafel and lox, oh, my!Jewish food fest draws 100-plus


Chabad @ the Beaches' sec-
ond annual Kosher Food
Festival attracted a large, hun-
gry crowd Sunday Sunday to
American Legion Post 129 in
Jacksonville Beach.
"We had more than 100
people before we even start-
ed," said Nochum Kurinsky,
rabbi at Chabad at the
Beaches, which is housed in
Ponte Vedra Beach. His wife,
Leah Kurinsky, is Chabad's
-events coordinator.
The festival, which offered
traditional Jewish food, was
scheduled to begin at 12:30
p.m., but the eager crowd
forced an earlier start.
Pam Ervanian was one of
the volunteers manning the
deli sandwich table, a hit
both last year and this. Her
son, Max Ervanian, took

charge at the food and raffle
tickets table.
The younger Ervanian ani-
matedly directed people to
the next open volunteer's
position and helped explain
the tickets procedure.
Falafel in pita served with
hummus and Israeli salad by
Zahava Zrihen and her daugh-
ter, Lizette, cost five tickets. A
slice of apple strudel cost
three tickets; a whole apple
strudel could be purchased for

Nease High's Paige DePriest gets low to return a serve against Bolles during the Preseason Classic at Nease last Saturday. DePriest played an instrumental role in
the Panthers' victories over the Bulldogs and perennial volleyball powerhouse Ordando Bishop Moore during the preseason tournament.

Panthers quarterback Ted Stachitas
gets ready to fire a pass during
practice Monday.




Nease High coaches and
players have vowed the
Panthers will not take a step
back in volleyball this season
and those predictions appear
to be true following last
Saturday's Preseason Classic.
The Panthers defeated long-
time rival Bolles 25-21, 25-20,
33-31 in a thriller that set the
tone for the entire event.
Orlando's Bishop Moore, a
traditional powerhouse that
the Panthers beat last season
en route to the state semifi-
nals, then topped Tallahassee
Chiles 25-8, 25-15, 19-25, 21-
25, 15-7.
That set up a showdown
between Nease and Bishop
Moore in the tournament's
championship game. The
Panthers rolled to a 25-17, 22-
25, 25-16, 25-17 victory.
Senior Paige DePriest paced
the Panthers with 24 kills
while teammate Kristin
Adkison added 21.
Sophomore Wesley Anne
Barden and Holland Hoefnagel
chipped in with 15 kills each.
On defense, Nease libero
Cierra Pillsbury had 30 digs,
Barden recorded 18 and
DePriest contributed 16 digs.
Hoefnagel also led her team
with five blocks, while Adkison
and freshman Kamryn
Sherman each had four.
Sherman is younger sister of
Meghan Sherman, who as a
Nease senior co-captain last
season helped lead the team to
the state's final four. Kamryn
finished the preseason tourna-
merit with a triple-double: 71
assists, 12 aces and 22 digs.
Nease was slated to begin
the regular season with a
whirlwind week. Tuesday night
the Panthers were slated to
host Matanzas, then travel to
Spruce Creek High School on
Wednesday before returning
home Thursday to host Clay.
Varsity matches begin at 7

The Nease High School foot-
ball team finally gets to face
an opponent for the first time
since a disappointing loss in
the 2006 state championship
game Friday when it travels to
North Marion High School to
open the regular season.
With the opening of the sea-
son comes a tough competitor
for the Panthers. The Colts
have won the 3A-5 district the
past four years and went to the
state semifinals the last two.
"This might be one of the
toughest openers we've ever
had," Nease head coach Craig
Howard said. "This will be a
good challenge."
North Marion packs a
loaded roster, one that returns
nine offensive starters and four
on defense from last years'
squad. Among the top players
for the Colts are 6-5 wide
receiver Darius Morgan, run-
ning back Albert Gary, 260-
pound fullback Ryan Williams
and first-year quarterback
Demontrelle' Smith.
*"They feel like this is their
best team yet," Howard said.
"They're loaded. College
scouts frequent their practices.

to defend the Class 4A state
title it won in 2005..
Thanks to bad weather last
weekend, the Colts missed out

on a preseason game as well.
"They were supposed to play
last Friday night but their
game was cancelled due to
lighting," Howard said. "So
they didn't get an edge on us
by playing in a kickoff classic,
but we also didn't get a chance
to see them yet."
The first game of the year is
always an important one,
according to Howard, who is
anxious to get .the 2007 season
"The most important time
in a football season is between
the first time you play and the
second time you play,"
Howard said. "You get to work
out a lot of kinks.
"It's been a long time since
but it'll be fun to finally play
against somebody else."
Nease returns Ted Stachitas
to the lineup that includes
running back Andrew Barnes,
Graham and Hunter Bates,
linebacker Riley Haynes and 6-
6, 320-pound defensive tackle
Ramon Booi.
A dual-threat quarterback,
Stachitas passed for 2,514
yards and 29 TDs last season as
a 15-gam'e starter. He also
rushed for 1,130 yards.
Stachitas, Haynes and Booi
are all committed to Wake
Forest. Various others on the
Panthers roster also have offers
from D-I colleges.
Combined with the talented
North Marion roster, Howard
said it is expected that around
8,000-10,000 fans will attend
Friday night's game.
That's fine with Nease,
which is ready to take the
"We're hungry to play,"
Howard said. "We've been
hungry since the. last 17 sec-
onds of the state champi-
onship game. We've been
preparing for this game. It's
been a long off-season and
we're ready to play."
"You start to find out a little
bit about yourself in the first
game," Howard added. "You
find out some good things
and you'll find out some bad
things. That's why you play
early season games. It doesn't
have much to do with play-
offs and state championships,
it's just an early game to find
out about yourself."

There's plenty of red bass
action in the river.
Offshore, bottom fishing
has everyone coming off their
boats smiling.

noon, David Webb and his
son Nate caught six reds
weighing 11 to 14 pounds.
On Wednesday, Scott Sulli-
van and Terry Bartlett, with
Fred, anchored the Little
Yvonne near the same spot in
the river and netted five big
reds, seven to 12 pounds, and
a drum.
Capt. Fred and Jim Lyons
tried Nassau Sound on
Thursday morning. They used
dead shrimp and caught 21



whiting, 11 jacks and a shark.
Friday was a great day for
Fred and his buddy Jim
Padgett. They fished the feed-
er creeks for 25 red bass, five
mangrove, three jacks, a pair

Capt. Chris Rooney, William

Barrineau took the Driftin' and
Dreamin' to the Elton bottom
last Saturday in choppy seas.
Their catch included three

about 20 snapper.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier last week Jim Franklin
caught a 12-pound king.
Three tarpon were jumped on
king rigs and caused plenty of
excitement.. Veteran angler
Spencer Brogden had a dozen
whiting and a sheepshead in
his cooler. Other anglers
brought flounder, speckled
trout, drum and red bass to
the Pier scales.
Larry "Fishman" Finch,

In order for Jaguars to win,

'Ya gotta believe!'

M aybe the final presea-
son meeting with the
Washington Redskins
Thursday night in Weaver
Village will be the beginning
of that great season so long
overdue for Jaguars fans. They
shouldn't miss it.
The players and fans should
remember what the late Tug
inspired his
Phillies team-
mates and fans
with in 1980.
The often-
Phillies were
restored to win-
ning ways
when ace pitch-
er Frank "Tug" ,
McGraw kept
reminding one -9 Iu.
and all, "Ya
gotta believe!" REX EDB
Eventually PRES
the Phillies did
believe in
themselves and
went on to win
the National
League pennant WIo-
and the one
and only World wrT es
Series in fran-
chise history.
That series was wh
with old Tug c
flapping his leg
with his glove S
every inning as
he came off the
mound after -
stifling the
Kansas City
Royals with a variety of dispy-
doodle pitches.
It helps, of course, to out-
score the other team and play
air tight defense, but the
motto Tug inspired carried
Philadelphia all season even
when the team would lose.
Now, mind over matter
works all right when there's
nothing the matter, but it
takes physical out-playing to
win every time.
The Jaguars go into their
final preseason game with a 2-
1 record. Not bad, but not
great. "Not great" teams usual-
ly finish about 8-8, which
should be familiar to

Jacksonville fans in the stands
who haven't had their senses
dulled by too much suds.
Let us defend the fans here,
who have stood (or weaved)
behind their team in spite of
itself. Since 2000, when the
bottom dropped out of Mr.
Weaver's Jaguar stock market
through assassination by the
Tennessee Titans, Jag players
and fans have
continued to
5 talk about
going to the
Super Bowl.
But it reminds
us of that old
song, "Ever-
body who
talks about
S. Heb-bin ain't
a-going there .
.. The closest
Jaguar people
have gotten
IONDSON to the Super
S BOX Bowl was
when they
brought the
danged thing
here. At least
the players
r aPll s got good tick-
t e- e o But this is
2007, kiddies,
a e and the sub-
ject is how
This team not
kep only wins big,
but survives
g one economically.
They tell us
SgoaII that at least
two in the
have been canned by econom-
ic necessity. That's strange
because we can't recall seeing
that pair drop a pass, fumble
the ball or over-throw a
receiver all summer.
Maybe the Jaguars should
start with the players on the
payroll before the ribbon
The fiscal situation for Mr.
Weaver is apparently no joke
even more reason why the
team needs fans in the seats
now more than ever. Players
are making more than ever
and so too are the coaches.
Fans will do their part to help,
but it's a two-way street.

Jaguars backup quarterback David Garrard, above in action against the Indianapolis Colts last season, is like to see significant play-
ing time in the team's final preseason contest Thursday night as the Washington Redskins come to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.

Very few are going to pay
big-league admission prices for
little league performances. The
hot dogs and beer ain't that
Thursday's meeting with the
Washington Redskins is the
final game before surgery this
week and even though it
means very little, it would be
a good time to start showing
some old Jaguar spirit. If Mark
Brunell is still aboard that
wacky ship (assuming he sur-
vives this week's roster cut-
down to 75 players) it would
be even better. Mark was a
very popular quarterback here
for several years of the most
productive times in franchise
Brunell was a very good

quarterback. Not in the class
with Byron Leftwich, of
course, but still pretty good.
They tell us Leftwich will
play a series or two Thursday
night, perhaps even three, so
we guess that's when the
offense will really take off. If it
plays like it did in the first
half against Green Bay, that
offense had better take off -
for anywhere.
Nevertheless, we stand by
what old Tug McGraw told the
Phillies some 27 years ago: "Ya
gotta believe!"
Those of us who knew Tug
when he pitched for the
Jacksonville Suns in the 1960s
weren't surprised he could
jack the Phillies up. As one
who covered the World Series

and talked to him then, it sur-
prised no one that he
remained the same old Tug.
Maybe that's what Jack Del
Rio needs now another
player who inspires the team
and its fans. We mean, aside
from Byron Leftwich.
In this year's training camp,
a player confided, "This team
is going places. You'll see."
Don't know about the team,
but some of its players are
going places before the week
is out. For example, to get the
roster down to 75 players, he
Jaguars released 11 on
Monday. Among the departed
were veteran safety/special
teams man Nick Sorenson,
tight end Jermaine Wiggins,
linebacker Jorge Cordova,

wide receiver Jimmy Farris and
fullback Derrick Wimbush.
Also waived were six first-
year players including offen-
sive tackle Andrew Carnaham,
receiver Roosevelt Kiser, quar-
terback Lester Ricard, wide
receiver D'Juan Woods, run-
ning back D.D. Terry and
defensive end Jeremy Mincey.
More players, and undoubt-
edly a few surprise names, will
be trimmed in coming days as
Del Rio and staff make final
cuts to get the team down to
53 active players by the
league's September 1 deadline.
Just remember fans, "Ya
gotta believe!" Something
good is going to happen in
Jacksonville. It has to. It's the
law of averages.

Smack talk permitted this week

T he best thing about the
start of college football
season is that all fans are
on even "smack talk" turf.
That's right, even Kentucky
and Duke fans can spew arro-
gance and proclaim to the
world that this is in fact the
year that their hardwood
dominance translates onto the
Every team is 0-0 and every
fan base has a title claim to
stake. Two-a-days are over and
every team that didn't win a
championship last season has
the guy who could turn it all
around. The rest of the
nation, as far as fans are con-
cerned, had better get ready
for "fill in the blank."
Polls? We don't care about
no stinking polls. The most
ardent Vanderbilt fans will tell
you that the pollsters are
gonna look foolish when the
Commodores ride Earl
Bennett's coattails all the way
to Atlanta. The die-hard blue
bloods in Lexington, Ky., are
sure that Andre Woodson is
the second coming of well
- they haven't really had a
first coming but they know
Woodson is really good. And
Wake Forest backers are itch-
ing for their team to prove
that last year's ACC
Championship wasn't a fluke.
Excitement is brewing in
every nook and cranny of the
college football world. In
Athens, Ga., this year will be

S. "


the start of a longoverdue
winning streak against the
hated Gators. Up in Michigan,
Ohio State is ripe for the pick-
ing and Wolverine fans know
it. In Knoxville, Tenn., Phil
Fulmer probably just polished
off another box of Krispy
Kremes. But that's beside the
Rice and Temple might as
well throw down some smack
while they're ahead. How
often is it that those guys get
to take part in the razzing?
Probably only before the first
week of each season, so get to
it Owls' fans. Western
Michigan, Western Kentucky,
Western Carolina, Western
Sizzlin strike that but
you get the point. Every fan
base should brag and taunt
while the bragging and taunt-
ing is good.
Tailgating should be at a
premium this weekend.

Nevada fans can stack char-
coal briquettes with their
heads held high because the
Wolfpack will be just as unde-
feated as Nebraska before
Saturday's 3:30 p.m. kick.
North Texas fans can savor
those pre-gane beer butt
chickens, knowing that they
will have just as many wins as
Oklahoma before the Sooners
and Mean Green butt heads
Saturday night.
All slates are clean, which
means all teams can dare to
Eight Division I college
football teams are set to kick
off the season on national TV
Thursday night, followed by
most of the rest on Friday and
Saturday. And until the final
whistles echo, all of them are
in the proverbial driver's seat
to win a championship of
some kind.
Of course, as the season
advances, so does the humble-
ness of fans who knew deep
down that their team had no
shot at a championship in the
first place. The volume of
smack talk will decrease expo-
nentially as the season wears
on. But the Kentuckys, Dukes
and Ohio States (cheap shot)
of the world can hold their
heads high this week. Because
until the final second of the
Tulsa-Louisiana Monroe game
ticks off the clock Thursday
night, every team is undefeat-
