Center pact
FROM STAFF
City officials in Atlantic Beach and
Neptune Beach have proposed a joint
agreement to maintain Town Center.
The purpose of the agreement is for
both cities to jointly plan for "zoning,
public facilities and the provision of
municipal services" in the commercial
area at the end of Atlantic Boulevard,
where the two cities meet.
"The idea is to have a formal relation-
ship between the two cities without
usurping zoning," according to Atlantic
Beach Mayor Don Wolfson.
Wolfson explained at a meeting this
week that if an issue comes up, such as
parking, a committee can be appointed-
jointly between both cities; to prevent
several entities trying to do things on
their own without any formal guidance
by.the cities.
Neither city would' give up any
authority or control in their jurisdic-
tions, according to the proposed agree-
ment.
The first committee that would be
formed under the agreement would be a
committee to study parking and how to
improve it in the Town Center area.
Although nothing has been finalized,
the Commission plans to have further
discussions about the proposed agree-
ment at future meetings.


JSO grant, effective October 1, that will
allow a crime analyst to be hired through
JSO that will specifically serve the
Beaches.
"Jacksonville needs our data. We need
their data," said Atlantic Beach Police Chief
David Thompson.
The crime analyst will look in-depth at
pattern series, trends and cross-jurisdiction-
al incidents that occur between both the
Beaches and Jacksonville, according to
Justin Hill, JSO's Chief of the Continuous
Improvement Division.

Palms plans

promised

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Architectural drawings for the former
Palms apartments, off Mayport Road, should
be submitted to the city of Atlantic Beach
within two to four weeks, according to Glen
Trotter, representative for the property.
Plans include maintaining the existing 25
concrete block buildings, adding additional
bathrooms to individual units, reconfiguring
the interior layout of units, updating plumb-
ing and electricity and updated landscaping,
according to a letter to the city from Trotter.
City commissioners, however, are wary,
explaining that they have heard varying
details about the property and potential plans
for the future.
"I would like this to be marked on a calen-
dar," said Mayor Don Wolfson so the city can
stay on top of the project.
The property has been cited for several
minor code violations, such as tall grass and a
pile of debris, after city commissioners
requested that staff investigate the condition
of the blighted structures. The city could not
find any provisions in its code that the
remaining skeletal walls might violate,
according to City Manager Jim Hanson.
Staff is researching other codes to see if
other Florida cities regulate similar situations

Jacksonville Beach officials are putting
the finishing touches on the new com-
munity center and recreation building
located in South Beach Park at the city's
south end.
The new facility is expected to open
next month, according to Assistant City
Manager Roy Paxson.,
"We have still not tied down the exact
date but we are shooting for Sept. 28,"
Paxson said Thursday. "We've got to get
the furniture in place prior to the open-
ing. It is all hinging on that."
Paxson said paving of the area along
the city's water plant for additional park-
ing must be complete as well before the
facility is open for business.

The new Jacksonville Beach Community

Paxson said on an Aug. 3 tour of the new
facility. "When people come in, the
employees can watch them and answer
questions.
"It meets our needs and takes care of
our existing personnel," he said.
A glass partition equipped with speak-
ers will separate the staff from the public.
City Manager George Forbes said the sys-
tem could be implemented in the future
at service counters at City Hall.
"This is something we might utilize on
the first floor," he said. "As the world gets
crazier, we might think of doing some-
thing like this."
The community center will also serve as
the "nerve center for the city" in the
event of a catastrophic storm or other
emergency.

Police: JSO to share info Police plan
rh eLknri nti


Cont. from A-I
Thompson said he plans to
have a meeting with JSO and
discuss a list of things that he
wants JSO to share with the
Beaches.
For example, Thompson
said he wants JSO reports that
are pertinent to Beaches areas -
such as Mayport, which shares
jurisdiction between
Jacksonville and Atlantic
Beach easily available to the
public at the Beaches. The
reports would be available for
inspection at the Atlantic
Beach police station.
"While Beach police have
access to JSO information,
local chiefs said they are not
sure they always know about
all JSO activities on the barrier
island.
"We have access to
Jacksonville reports, but they
are riot easily differentiated by
location," Thompson said,
explaining it is currently easier
to put information into the
JSO records system than it is to
get information out.
Although Neptune Beach
and JSO share the same infor-
mation system, Atlantic Beach
and Jacksonville Beach do not.
Thompson said that some
data on the different systems
will need to be converted so
that information can be shared
more readily.
While the Beaches police
departments often work with
each other and with JSO -
they do not find out about
everything that occurs in
Jacksonville's jurisdiction, but
abuts Beaches' city lines.
For example, the Atlantic
Beach Police Department
found out about a bomb scare


on Wonderwood Drive
Saturday only after hearing
from a civilian that the road
was closed and inquiring
about it from JSO. There was
no bomb.
Beach police departments
keep each other informed of
ongoing concerns or crimes in
progress, chiefs said. Not
everything is passed along, but
the local police departments
"communicate effectively,"
Jacksonville Beach Police Chief
Bruce Thomason said, noting
that there are no hard and fast
rules on sharing information.
"Crime travels," Thomason,
said, acknowledging that good
relations and communication
between the departments are
important.
While Beaches police offi-
cials all said that JSO is good
about i communicating with
the Beaches'in most instances,
there is no official way for the
Beaches to know about some
incident reports at Fletcher
High School, for example as
incident reports go to JSO.
However, a crime analyst
should help bridge the gap by
formalizing the process in
which information is shared,'
according to Hill.
Other helpful information,
such as crime statistics will also
be more accessible to Beaches
residents.
JSO helps provide some
information to the Beaches -
such as crime statistics on Wal-
Mart stores during the Wal-
Mart debate in Neptune Beach
- but the process has never
been formalized, said Hill.
"I think it's a win-win for
them and us," he said.

Ground Maintenance
Director Gary Meadors said the
building is wired to support
satellite telephones and
numerous computers if City
Hall is damaged in a storm.
An onsite generator will pro-
vide enough power to sustain
operations for three days,
Meadors said, to allow the city
time to receive federal help,
including tanker trucks with
fuel.
The generator outside the
center is elevated and covered
to protect it from flood waters
and debris associated with a
devastating storm.
Security will be provided
while the building is in use. An
officer must also be present for
any functions where alcohol is
served.
"You are not going to get a
better deal than that any-
where," Forbes said.
Amenities will include 15
round tables with 185 chairs, a
temporary stage, dance floor,
drop down projector system
and screen for power point pre-
sentations and clips for dis-
plays that will not damage the
walls.
Carpet squares covering the
floor can be easily removed or
replaced and present a more
attractive aesthetic than vinyl,
staffers said.
A small patio may be con-
structed on the side of the
community center for people
to enjoy the outdoors, particu-
larly smokers.
The warming kitchen is
appointed with stainless steel
fixtures and and appliances. A
grill donated by contractors
with C. Young Construction
will also be available outdoor
cooking.
"It's nothing fancy. It's utili-
tarian but it is a nice looking
facility," Mayor Fland Sharp
said. "It is not too big, not too
small. It is a perfect fit for our
community."

Ponte Vedra officer was a rising star


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Det. James Sanford of the St.
Johns County Sheriff's Office
loved police work, fishing, golf
and cooking.
The Ponte Vedra Beach resi-
dent was a fast mover in the
Sheriff's Office, rising from
deputy to detective in less than
six years.
Sanford could hit the long
ball, whether in baseball or
golf, and he was a tournament-
caliber angler who could cook
anything he caught.
Family, friends and co-work-
ers are mourning the loss of
Sanford, a highly decorated
police officer who died unex-
pectedly last Saturday of a mas-
sive heart attack after a day of
offshore fishing near West Palm
Beach.
He was 33.
"Jimmy always had a very
quick mind," Sanford's mother,
Hiroko Sanford of Neptune
Beach, said this week.
"His superiors [in the Sheriff's
Office] couldn't stop talking
about him. That makes me so
proud."
Born in Jacksonville in 1973,
Sanford graduated with honors
from Fletcher High School in
1992.
A former catcher for the
Senators and at the University
of North Florida where he
majored in criminal justice,
Sanford was a SWAT team
sniper who had recently helped
solve a major case in the
Property Crimes Unit.
"He was fired up about that,"
Sanford's younger brother, Jeff,
said Thursday.
"The most comforting thing
is that in his last days, he was
doing what he loved most."
James Sanford was with his
brother and his former UNF
baseball teammate, Steve
Sheiman, when he experienced
chest pains on Sheiman's boat.

STAFF WRITER
As members of the Ponte
Vedra Women's Golf
Association, Nancy Aves, Becky
Jewett and Connie Weinert are
golfing buddies at the Ponte
Vedra Inn & Club.
But the three have much
more in common. After each
was diagnosed with breast can-
cer last year, each woman was
treated by the same oncologist
at Mayo Clinic and was operated
on by the same surgeon.
Now, each woman's unique,
yet common, experience with
breast cancer and her associa-
tion with the golf club has led to
a charity event, with Mayo
Clinic as the beneficiary.
The Oct. 2 inaugural Pink
Ribbon Golf Classic will be held
at the Inn & Club's Ocean
Course and is expected 'to raise
$20,000 or more to support
breast cancer. research at the
Mayo.
"The ladies stepped up so
quickly when the three of us got
sick together,".Weinert said last
week at the Inn & Club.
"The classic the year before
was well attended, but there
wasn't quite the emotional push
behind it," Weinert said of last
year's event at the Inn & Club,
whose proceeds went to the
Susan B. Komen foundation, a
national breast cancer organiza-
tion.
"The association president
and vice president this year
decided that, instead of raising
money for the Komen
Foundation, that because all
three of us had been treated at
the Mayo, we'd like to keep our
money local," Weinert said.
"And, of course, the Mayo was
all over that. They were very
excited."
Weinert emphasized the
importance of women getting


mammograms.
"All three of us [had cancers
that] were found on mammo-
grams," she said. "Ladies will be
on the golf course at the classic,
and the topic will be breast can-
cer: who's got it, genetically
who's predisposed. Girls, get
your mammograms. It's
extremely important."
Jewett is vacationing with her
husband, children and grand-
children in Martha's Vineyard
until shortly before the tourna-
ment. She missed that family
experience last year.
"The three of us were over
there at pretty much the same


paramedics at

Sanford was
driven by
ambulance to
a hospital for -
further evalua- .-
tion. He died
there around 2 .'
p.m.:
Last week-
end, Sanford
had dined at
his two
favorite restau-
rants, spent
time with his
family and was
anxious to
help his broth-
er catch a big
fish.
"Jimmy
wanted to put
Jeff on a Det. Jame
wahoo," said
Sheiman.
"That's was Jimmy's goal. He
knew more about fishing than
any of us. He studied it."
Sanford was a quick study in
almost anything he ever
attempted, friends and family
recalled.
He held a'9-handicap in golf,
played the violin as a youth
and marveled family members
with his cooking prowess.
"He could have opened his
own restaurant," Sanford's
uncle, Bobby Nakajima, owner
of Chizu's Japanese Steakhouse
in Jacksonville Beach, said.
"He cooked a whole pig for
his mother's 60th birthday.
Before he left last weekend, he
said, 'Uncle, I'm bringing you
back some wahoo for sure.' "
Sanford left UNF a few credits
shy of graduation and earned a
Basic Law Enforcement certifi-
cation from Florida
Community College.
He graduated from the police
academy in St. Johns County
and became a sworn police offi-
cer in November 2000.


After the cer-
emony, he told
his mother,
"This is going
to be my life."
"My father
was a police-
man in Japan,"
said Hiroko
Sanford, a
longtime piano
teacher at the
Beaches.
When
Jimmy was 6
years old, he
said, 'Mommy,
I want to be a
policeman.' As
a mother, you
worry, but I
said, 'If that's
what you want
photo submitted to do, go for it.'
s Sanford
Sanford was a
go-to guy at the
Sheriff's Office. A former field
training officer, he was tapped
early for the department's tacti-
cal Community Emergency
Team.
"He was the epitome of a
SWAT man," Col. Art May of
the Sheriff's Office said.
"He didn't stand back and
wait for things to come to him.
He went after them. He was a
great sniper and investigator."
Sanford's image as a SWAT
sniper appeared in police-relat-
ed publications and on the side
of a black Hummer owned by
Jacksonville-based BAE
Systems, formerly Armor
Holdings Inc., May said.
"He was an extremely hum-
ble guy," Sanford's brother said.
"He didn't like attention. He
was a stickler for form. I was
jealous of how well he could
play golf."
At UNF, Sanford was a walk-
on catcher, and a favorite of
head coach Dusty Rhodes,
Sheiman recalled.

time," Jewett said last week.
"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 physi-
cians who not only communi-
cated 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."

home run derby contest at
Harmon Stadium, Sanford beat
teammate Todd Dunn, a first-
'round draft pick of the
Milwaukee Brewers.
Nicolette Nordan, Sanford's
girlfriend for more than three
years, said what attracted her
most to Sanford was how he
treated his mom.
"Jimmy's nature was as a pro-
tector," said Nordan, who also
works at the Sheriff's Office.
"He wouldn't leave his condo
in Ponte Vedra and move south
[to St. Augustine]. He was so
family oriented."
The couple kept their rela-
tionship private, Nordan said,
adding that only a handful in
the Sheriff's Office were aware
the two were even dating.
"He was very serious about
his job and very respected in
the agency," said Nordan,
adding that there's was more to
Sanford than just his tough,
SWAT team persona.
He doted over his brother's
young daughter, Gracie, and
was a whiz in the kitchen.
"Jimmy could go to a restau-
rant, taste something, and go
home and make it," Nordan
said.
"When he focused on some-
thing, it was 120 percent. He
was aggressive in the agency,
but also very. quiet [about his.
achievements]."
Sanford earned two meritori-
ous service awards with the
Sheriff's Office, a Combat
Medal, and an Exceptional
Service Award. He also received
numerous letters of commen-
dation.
Col. May said Sanford was
destined for sergeant's stripes in
the near future.
A procession of police vehi-
cles escorted Sanford's body
back to Jacksonville Monday
evening..
Nakajima said the procession
for his nephew stretched more
than a mile along Interstate 95.
"Every exit was shut down,"
Sanford's mother said.
"Truck drivers were saluting
him. It was amazing and very
emotional."
Added Jeff Sanford: "It was
the proudest moment of my
life. I was so proud of Jimmy.
He deserved it."

Man reports attack by gunmen


FROM STAFF
A 31-year-old man report-
ed he was accosted by two
gunman late Saturday as he
stood in the driveway of a
friend's home in Sandy Oaks,
off State Road A1A in Ponte
Vedra Beach.
The man said he arrived at
the home on Robles Lane
about 11:30 p.m. after hav-
ing dinner in Jacksonville
Beach and was approached
by two black men who got
out of an older model car and
asked him for a cigarette.
After the men demanded
money and "everything in
your car," the victim said,
one of them grabbed him


from behind in a "bear hug"
and held a silver handgun to
his head and mouth, accord-
ing to a report from the St.
Johns County Sheriff's
Office.
The robber holding him
told the other assailant,
"Shoot him," the report said.
One of the men took his
car keys and fled in the car,
and the other man threw the
victim to the ground and fled
in a late model white vehicle,
the report said.
The victim ran to a nearby
house, where someone called
911. The victim had small
lacerations on his knees and
elbows, police said.


Montessori school's expansion

bid rebuffed as parking plans

would involve wetlands

STAFF WRITER
A heavily wooded parcel
of land that includes envi-
ronmentally sensitive wet-
lands will not be developed
into a playing field and
overflow parking area.for a
Jacksonville Beach private
school.
Plans to expands the
Discovery Montessori
School located at 15th Street
North and Shetter Avenue
were nixed recently by the
city's Planning Commission
because of the expansion's
impact on surrounding
areas.
Senior Planner Bill Mann .
recommended that the com-
mission deny the request
because the 90' x 142' parcel
would require extensive
clearing, including most of
the existing trees, and on
site wetlands.
"An example of the diffi-
culty in developing in this
area adjacent to the marsh
can be seen by the bulkhead
that the school had to con-
struct to the south of the
[proposed] property for, one
of their parking areas," he
said in his staff recommen-
dation.
Mann said the plans
would also encroach on the
rear yards of several adjacent
homes, one of which shares
a 400 foot common property

The eastern boundary of
property is situated approxi-

"The elimination of the
natural area behind this

affect its value as well, as

The Leader's Opinion


Crime travels at Beach

so information must also

The Beaches are fortunate to have three very good
municipal police departments staffed by trained profes-
sionals committed to safeguarding the public.
Those departments one in each municipality oper-
ate independently and each employ different policies and
practices, even extending to mundane details such as com-
'puter systems used to file reports.
The Beaches benefit tremendously from having inde-
pendent police departments that are of manageable size
and capable of providing quick response. In truth, the pub-
lic safety provided by the municipal police departments is
a large factor in why the Beaches have correctly insisted on
maintaining independence from the consolidated city of
Jacksonville.
Our public safety at the Beaches is far too important to
leave to county authorities who would treat us as just
another neighborhood of Jacksonville's 800+ square miles.
We believe, however, that the Beaches communities
could benefit if there were improved communications
between all of the law enforcement agencies that operate
on the barrier island.
Local police chiefs talk to each other, as do officers on
the street, leading to an informal exchange of ideas. More
can be done on a consistent, formalized basis and some
local elected and law enforcement officials have said they
are interested.
The need for better communication between agencies
extends to the 800-pound gorilla of local law enforcement
the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office which, as a county
office, has jurisdiction on the island.
Given the restrictions on public access to public records,
currently there is no easy way for Beaches citizens to learn
everything that the sheriff's office does on the barrier
island as reports are available for a fee by request on a case
by case basis meaning you have to know what to
request and, in most cases, be willing to pay $3 per report.
Last week's report that Neptune Beach police are not
automatically informed about all sheriff's reports filed at
Fletcher High School the biggest institution at the
Beaches makes it clear that better information sharing is
needed.
Beaches police officials said they are often informed by
JSO about activities here, but, as one Beaches police chief
acknowledged, it is hard to know what is not being shared
under the current system.
"We do need to get our beasts talking" Atlantic Beach
Police Chief David Thompson said, talking about the
information systems in the .different law enforcement
agencies. He said he and other administrators have started
working on improving the flow of information.
That's something all of us should agree is worth the
investment needed.
As Thompson said, "we do all share the same bad guys."





Letters to the editor:


We don't want FHS policing

to be a mystery to parents


To the editor:
One of the reasons we sent
our daughter to the local high
school instead of downtown
was that, God forbid, if some-
thing were to happen, we
would know right away and
be able to get to our child.
Now we find out that the
policing of our beach school
is outsourced to Jacksonville.
According to The Leader arti-
cle, if something "major"
occurs, the school "usually"
notifies Neptune Beach
police. Routine incident
reports are not provided to
the Neptune Beach Police.
Usually notifies Neptune
Beach?!? This is completely
unacceptable. Fletcher Senior,
though located in Neptune


Beach, is attended by students
from all three beach cities. If
Neptune Beach can't afford a
police officer, then Atlantic
Beach and Jacksonville Beach
should contribute so that we
can afford it. Certainly
Neptune Beach police can
leave their post in the K-Mart
shopping center to keep our
children safe!
At the very least, every sin-
gle incident should be report-
ed to Neptune Beach police.
They have jurisdiction; for
goodness sake they should be
advised as to what is going on
in their own town. And so
should we parents!

New street light illuminates


sheer incompetency in NB


To the editor:
Even the most casual observ-
er must be astounded by
Neptune Beach's incredible
incompetence.
In the last couple of years,
Neptune Beach has spent con-
siderable time dealing with
public and private lighting
issues. Judging by the sudden,
unannounced and unneces-
sary installation of a street
light in the 200 block of.Pine
Street, Neptune Beach has
learned absolutely nothing
from past problems. This
light, which has transformed a
nice residential street into
something resembling a shop-
ping mall parking lot, is unac-
ceptable and must be removed
immediately.
First some background. A
few ,weeks,,ago ,..srime wave
rattlgeq, Pine Street ,residents.
with a couple of car break-ins
and an attempted home bur-
glary. While certainly cause for
concern, similar incidents,
regrettably, have occurred
before on Pine Street. While I
undoubtedly share the alarm
and apprehension of my very
nice next door neighbors, who
were the target of the attempt-
ed burglary, I believe their
effort to .have a street light
installed was misguided and
creates a sense of false security,'
considering one of the burglar-
ized cars was sitting under a


street light.
However, my quarrel is not
with the neighbors, who sin-
cerely believed they were
doing what was best for their
safety and security. The prob-
lem lies with Neptune Beach
for not having a comprehen-
sive lighting policy, dealing
with issues such as installing
street lights. This is especially
disturbing considering the
many previous problems with
lighting, including a past situ-
ation in the 100 block of Pine
Street that fractured the neigh-
borhood.
There are so many questions
regarding the. city's action,
space probably won't allow
them to be listed here.. But
shouldn't the city have .some
minimum requirements for
installing a new, street light?
Shouldn't the cityave noti-.
fied property-owners impacted
by a new light and sought
their consent? 'Shouldn't
someone requesting a street
light have to prove a substan-
tial need?
Somehow, Pine Street has
managed for more than 70
years without a street light in
the 200 block and it certainly
doesn't need one now.
With Neptune Beach facing
some tough budget questions
in the coming months, is it
really the best use of taxpayers
dollars to provide security


lighting for private residences?
In cases such as this it would
be much better for the home-
owner to upgrade their exteri-
or lighting, possibly installing
motion sensor lights, which is
a much less intrusive, efficient
and effective solution. If addi-
tional home lighting isn't
enough, perhaps a security
system should be installed,
which is what my other next
door neighbor did a few years
ago when someone broke into
their home.
While this latest Neptune
Beach incompetence seems
minor compared to long, long
list of other blunders made by
the city, it does prove unques-
tionably that the current city
manager and City Council are
not fit to govern this city.
:;,. At:AthePjext Council Pmet-
:.,ing, asits;la tooffiqial at, the,
Council should fire Jim Jarboe,
effective immediately. Then
each Council member should
stand up, and before announc-
ing their resignation, apolo-
gize to every Neptune Beach
resident for their gross derelic-
tion of duty when it comes to
representing the people.
Because if this is the best we
can do, then the city does not
deserve to have its own gov-
ernment.

Commissioner Fletcher owes an apology


To the editor:
After reading the articles in The Beaches
Leader .and Florida Times-Union of City
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher's reason for
opposing the Air Show in November, I can not
help but to make a comment on this action.
Many active duty and retired military veter-
ans reside in the Beaches community with a
large portion residing in Atlantic Beach. These
men and their families are consumers to the
merchants located in Atlantic Beach and many
pay city taxes, county taxes and mortgage
taxes.
I hope that the military families and retired
veterans will boycott the merchants in Atlantic
Beach as long as the current leaders are in office
or they reconsider their thoughts.
The Mayport NAS Commander should
declare the Atlantic Beach consumers off limits
to the Navy Personnel assigned to his com-


mand.
As for myself I will personally boycott the
merchants in Atlantic Beach because of this
anti-military attitude displayed publicly in the
area media.
Mr Fletcher serves at the pleasure of those
voting for him but only because of the freedom
to vote that will always be provided because of
brave and courageous men willing to wear the
uniform and be prepared to defend our way of
life.. Mr. Fletcher probably has never served in
the Armed Forces and will never have an appre-
ciation or gratitude for those who chose to do
so.
I sincerely hope that Mr. Fletcher will recon-
sider his remarks and offer an apology to the
honorable military men and women residing in
his beautiful and tranquil city.

Give young

people credit

for their

values

To the editor.
Does the influence of popu-
lar music, movies and televi-
sion promote strong families,
better parent-child communi-
cation, or even ."less sex, alco-
hol and drug use?" Absolutely
not. But despite the lack of
support from popular media,
society and even many class-
rooms, teens aie cioosiqg to
spend time with their families
and to say "no" to sex.
According to a recent MTV
and Associated Press poll,
children today state that fam-
ily, religion/spirituality and
community service are their
major sources of happiness.
Of nearly 1,300 young peo-
ple ages 13-24, an overwhelm-
ing majority (87 percent) see
marriage in their future, with
61 percent of those saying
they are likely to stay married
to the same person. Nearly 80
percent want to have chil-
dren. When asked what one
thing in life makekthem the
happiest, 20 percent said
"family." Nearly three-quarters
said their relationship with
their parents also makes them
happy.
This poll and other research
have shown that children are
healthier and happier when
feeling "connected" to their
family. But they are even
more so when society and
their culture are not at great
odds with their family values.
1Ii some common valuess are nec-.
.,essary in order to maintain a
healthy society. Arid the men-
tal/emotional and physical
health of children today is
society's future.
We cannot continue to sup-
port personal freedoms at the
cost of societal health. Casual
sex and binge drinking are the
most obvious examples. With
alcohol, the message has
been, "Don't drink and drive."
Well, many young people are
drinking (binge drinking).
The message has been
ambiguous and doesn't deal
with the core issue of adoles-
cent drinking. While teens are
under the influence of alco-
hol, they are doing much
more than driving dangerous-
ly.
Many adults get squeamish
about telling young people
that they should "wait" to
have sex because either they
didn't wait to have sex or they
feel that people should not
dictate the behaviors of oth-
ers.
Early sexual onset results in
higher rates of depression, sui-
cide, decreased school per-
formance, higher rates of
unplanned pregnancy and
sexually transmitted diseases.
It's time to stop being
squeamish. We owe it to our
children today and society
tomorrow. Band-Aids and
wishy-washy messages don't
work. Neither does caving in
because we don't know how
to set a standard.
The future of societal health
depends on our value of ado-
lescent health and our ability
to be direct and honest, as
well as supportive and "con-
nected" with our youth.

Don't politicize a

non-political event

To the editor:
Yet again, an attempt to tie political views
to a "non-political" event.
I am an Atlantic Beach resident and
Commissioner Fletcher's no-vote for funding
for the semi-annual Sea and Sky Spectacular is
absolutely ludicrous and is nothing but his
sad attempt to bloviate on issues that should
have no link.
I have seen no proposed legislation by
Commissioner Fletcher to refuse any revenues
received by the City of Atlantic Beach from
Mayport Naval Station.
If 100 people were polled about the "pur-
pose" of the Sea and Sky Spectacular, I'm sure
98 of them would say it's for fun.
Commissioner Fletcher, shame on you (again).
for your attempts to politicize a non-political
event.
By the way, will we see you in the VIP tent
at the show?

VIEWPOINTS


Fletcher has

a duty to

represent

community's

interests, not

his own
To the editor:
The "no" vote by Atlantic
Beach City Commissioner
Jamie Fletcher to the Sea and
Sky Spectacle on the grounds
that he is "morally and politi-
cally opposed to the war in
Iraq," and that this event
includes the military, is yet
the latest example that Jamie
Fletcher views his constituen-
cy as "me, myself and I."
By virtue of his elected posi-
tion, Jamie Fletcher represents
a military community, and a
general community popula-
tion in Atlantic Beach that
takes pride in that military,
and that has entrusted him to
consider their interests above
his own.
What a shame that Jamie
Fletcher has disrespected his
elected position and his con-
stituency by his vote.
Sure voting one's con-
science is a consideration but
when asked by the press what
a land and air show has to do
with the war in Iraq, Jamie
Fletcher's well reasoned
response was "in my mind
they are clearly linked." Let's
just consider that the air show
is not entirely military, and
let's just consider that United
States military operations are
not entirely focused on Iraq.

Private police for hire is bad


policy for PV neighborhoods


To the editor:
Some of the gated community associations
now, particularly Fairfield HOA, whose few
board members believe this is their "private
little city," and they are the Mayor pro-tem,
have taken upon themselves, to spend home-
owner money hiring an overzealous off-duty
St. Johns County deputy, late at night, to
watch over a meaningless 4-way "Stop" sign
intersection, in which in 19 years, not a sin-
gle accident or any other incident has ever
occurred.
This overzealous deputy has handed out
tickets, as if they were invitations to the
Policeman's Ball, by his own "interpretation"
of how to "properly stop" at a lonely
Intersection, late at night, with no traffic -
hardly a single vehicle on the small, insignif-
icant intersection. [The deputy] terrorizes this
community at will, apparently with the bless-
ing of the Sheriff, and the hard "paid money
of the homeowners of this community.
Here is where the balance in law enforce-
ment lies: A recent call to the sheriff's office
to make a report took over an hour and 20
minutes for a deputy to respond to take the
report "because they were too busy, according
to the dispatcher."
Aggressive enforcement of intersections is
reserved for those Intersections that have sta-
tistically and historically had a high degree of
accidents and fatalities. That is where the
"law enforcement service of this county"
should be concentrating its resources, just as
the current operation undertaken by the
Jacksonville Sheriffs Office at High Fatality
Intersections throughout the city.
"Balance and proper utilization of
resources" of our deputies and our law
enforcement personnel should be reserved for
those areas as a "whole" in the Ponte Vedra
sector, and not just for communities that can,
and are willing to hire, and even make a "few
dollars" from the use of overzealous enforce-
ment, from off-duty deputies.


There are many areas in this community
that do not have the luxury of being "gated"
and have these "Mayors wanna bees" that
need to take up a hobby or play shuffleboard
with their extra time.
There are plenty of areas with vehicle
break-ins, accidents, speeders, vandalism,
petty offenses, and the list goes on, yet we
remain with "limited law enforcement servic-
es"!
The Sheriff and the County Board of
Commissioner, meanwhile, need to take a
closer look at this policy, and put an end to
this "private police" for hire, when there con-
tinues to be a need for law enforcement serv-
ice in the community as a "whole," and not
just for those who are bent on spending their
-time looking at cars driving by.
I am all for "aggressive enforcement" of
those areas of this community that needs it
most!
One just has to travel daily on A1A to see
the daily accidents, the dangerous
Intersections, where, year after year, the sta-
tistics will warrant "the aggressive enforce-
ment" we see in these worthless operations,
by overzealous rent-a-deputy.
It should be an embarrassment to both the
department, and the county, that it would
take over an hour for a deputy to respond for
a report, but just a minute, for a 10 p.m. tick-
et, with absolutely no one in the road, just
because a "completely, by the book, 4 wheel
stop, was not done, in a "stop sign" that leads
to a "dead-end street".
It's time for proper oversight of these
resources, and how they are used, and it's
time that the County Commissioners study
the effect of our most valuable resources, and
deploy them properly, and fairly, without
regard of who "can afford them" That.is not
an effective balance of law enforcement!

NB doing its fair share

to support air show


To the editor:
I would like to clear up the
misconception that Neptune
Beach will not be funding the
air show this year. Two years
ago we funded $2,000 towards
the show and we will again
this year.
In 2001 when the air show
started coming to the Beaches
every two years, the City
Council was told we would
fund a one time $10,000.
Every two years they have
continued to ask for money
and the council has contin-
ued funding what we felt was
our fair share.
The City of Neptune Beach
does not have a utility to
bring in revenue as other
cities around us do and our
revenues are limited. Most of
our funding comes from prop-
erty taxes and we know what
has happened with the state


legislature.
Also, state revenue sharing
is down too. This year we
went to roll back rate in prop-
erty taxes and we have held
our ground on spending while
continuing to keep our level
of services.
And the air show should be
no different. Neptune Beach
has a small pot of money for
things like the air show, but
we also have other events that
come out of that pot of
money like "Christmas in the
Park."
We are proud of our mili-
tary and our link to Mayport
Navy Station and Neptune
Beach will always do our fair
share in support of communi-
ty events.

New take on helping the poor


To the editor:
Here is a weekly activity
that goes mostly unnoticed..
Two Atlantic Beach citizens
who are very active in the
community go out each. week
to try to raise money for the
needy. They are Mike & Jamie.
Each time they return Mike
only has a few dollars and
some change.
While Jamie returns with a
suitcase filled with $10 bills.
Mike finally has to ask
Jamie why, since they both
work the same portion of
Mayport Road, does she get so


much money?
Mike says to Jamie 'you live
in a big house, drive a big car,
belong to the best country
club, why do you get so much
money, and I get so little?
Jamie replies "What's on the
sign you hold up?"
Mike, shows him "Help feed
the homeless"
Now look at my suitcase
"Only need $10 more dollars
to move to San Francisco & be
with Jane Fonda !"

Sooner that

city will be

To the editor:
Do you think the voters ol
Atlantic Beach who supported
Commissioner Fletcher during
the elections in 2005 knew he
was a far left wing liberal whc
does not support our military?
This is yet another example
of the minority tryingto affect
the outcome for the majority.
If you want to oppose the war,
that your right as a free
American, paid for in blood,
sweat and tears by our military
by the way. Get a grip
Commissioner, this event is
about entertainment and local
businesses making some
money. Wake up people and
vote in the coming elections.
The sooner this commissioner
is voted out of office the better
off Atlantic Beach will be.
Is it October 2nd yet?.;

Annual event

Sea & Sky

honors those

who serve

this country
,To the editor:
Atlantic Beach City
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher's
vote not to support the Sea &
Sky Spectacular because of his
opposition to the war in Iraq
has shown no respect for the
sacrifices our service men and
women have made.
This is an annual event that
inspires respect and honors
those that serve our country in
the most meaningful way.
Shame on him! No excuse is
accepted.
The City of Neptune Beach's
decision not to support the Sea
& Sky Spectacular because of
budget cuts is understandable,
but reflects lack of understand-
ing in the symbolism of "no
support" at all. Should they
not make a smaller contribu-
tion? I hope so. Neptune
Beach is in the center of the
Beaches community and its
businesses and citizens will cer-
tainly benefit.

Honor Lemaster's contribution to

community with high school name


.To the editor:
I have lived in Ponte Vedra
since the time when there was
no high school or middle
school and students attended
Sthe Duval County Public;
Schools. Several yeafs' ago we
obtained a new middle school
located in Palm Valley that
was named after Alice B.
Landrum.
f Ponte Vedra has now
Obtained its own high school,
While many individuals have
contributed to the quality of
life in our community and
thus should be considered as
possible candidates to have
Sthe school named in their.
honor one stands out above
all others.
Edward B. Lemaster
("Ebbie") was a community
leader in Ponte Vedra from its
early development until-the
Time of his death. To docu-
ment the tasks he performed
to enhance our community
would require more space
than is acceptable for a letter
to the editor.
S Briefly his. resume would


include that he was a decorat-
ed member of the armed
forces having served in the
Korean War, was appointed to
and served on several Marine
Commissions both at the
state and federal levels over-
seeing the environment and
preserving our resources, was
instrumental in the enact-
ment of Ponte Vedra's first
zoning laws and was instru-
mental in the relocation of
State Road A1A from its for-
mer alignment on Ponte
Vedra Boulevard to its present
location thus eliminating traf-
fic congestion and commer-
cialization of the area along
Ponte Vedra Boulevard.
His love and devotion to,
this area were unmatched.
Ebbie was always prepared to
lend his time and efforts to
causes which enriched our
community.
This is not the first time
Ebbie's name has been sug-
gested for a new school.
Ebbie's name was nominated
for the first middle school to
serve the PV/PV community


only to be withdrawn by
Ebbie himself thus helping to
insure the school being
named after Alice B.
Landrum. (Mrs. Landrum
-with her husband Roy,-were
S'also i-istrumental, in making.
Ponte Vedra what it is today.)
This unselfish act was typi-
cal of Ebbie. I can think of no
better tribute to this outstand-
ing citizen and community
leader than to name our new
school in his honor.
"Ponte Vedra High School"
is the name that has been sug-
gested by some for the new
school ill lieu of using Ebbie's
name. While I agree that the
high school should include
"Ponte Vedra," I also believe it
is time that Ebbie's efforts for
our community be aptly rec-
ognized by bestowing the
honor of naming our new
high school in his memory.
I would therefore suggest
"Lemaster Ponte Vedra High
School" be employed.

Use public money so it will most help public


To the editor:
I almost fell off my chair
when I looked at the front
page of The Leader today.
Atlantic Beach is considering
purchasing art for $95,000.00!
Perhaps they need to re-think
this and move the money to
places that need it. Atlantic
Beach is not rolling back


property taxes, because they
.cannot afford to do so, but
they can spend $95,000 on
art?
The City Commission
should be ashamed. How
about moving some of the art
money to get the homeless,
the prostitutes and crime out
of the forgotten Section H! I


have family in Section H and
believe me, Section H gets
very little attention from the
City Commissioners.
Shame on you.

These days taxpayer money Buy it, Sell it. Find it

should not buy artwork in the Classifieds


To the editor:
Some of Jacksonville City
Council member Art
Graham's constituents might
be as surprised as I and others
at the last AB Commission
meeting when we learned that
Mr. Graham has promised
$50,000 to match $45,000
from the AB public treasury to
secure and place a sculpture
on city land in AB.
A non-profit group,
Atlantic Beach Public Arts
Commission, Inc., that
includes on its stationary the
names of Paul and Tracie
Parsons, is the moving force.
Mr. Parsons, while a
Commissioner, was responsi-
ble for putting the original
$45,000 into the AB budget
during his last year as
Commissioner in 2005.
A year later Mr. Parsons
appeared in front of the
Commission as a private citi-
zen with a request that anoth-
er $45,000 be added to the


initial $45,000 budget but his
request was refused -
although the line item for the
initial sum remained in the
budget.
Mr. Parsons and his group
turned to Mr. Graham, who
apparently is unaware that
vital governmental services
are in jeopardy as the result of
actions taken by his
Republican friends in
Tallahassee.
Commissioner Sylvia
Simmons had the correct take:
Why should AB taxpayers -
who also pay county and state
levies -- consider a $45,000
investment in a $95,000 piece
of public art the best use of
limited dollars at this time
and place? This is a project for
the private sector and not a
duty or responsibility of local
government, especially in
uncertain financial times.

FROM STAFF
With emergency rooms overburdened and
patients often experiencing long waits, two
Beaches residents have launched an alternative
and opened a new health care business at 11048-
9 Baymeadows Road at 9A.
The business, Crucial Care/Emergency
Medicine Doctors, offers care for those people
who need immediate access to an emergency
medicine physician for serious health concerns
such as asthma attacks, severe lacerations and
bone fractures, pneumonia and chest pains.
Crucial Care is staffed with board certified emer-
gency medical doctors, the same kind of physi-
cian who would work in a hospital emergency
room, the founders said. Hours for Crucial Care
are 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to
3 p.m. on weekends. No appointment is required.
Co-founder and President Mike Shumer is a
Jacksonville Beach resident and co-founder Dr.
Nick Dodaro MD, FACEP is an Atlantic Beach res-
ident.
"We developed this concept because nation-
wide and here in Jacksonville, emergency rooms
are overburdened and this has led to a variety of
challenges including long wait times," said
President Shumer. "Our goals are to provide a
higher level of care fast by experienced profes-
sionals in. a comfortable atmosphere where
patient concerns are heard."
Crucial Care's services differ from walk-in med-
ical clinics by providing care suitable for more
severe cases than is normally offered by the fami-
ly physician. Equipment on-site will be similar to

In the last days before the
beginning of the school year, 24
teens from Journey Church
attended a Back to School
Retreat at Camp Montgomery in
Keystone Heights. On the high
ropes at the camp are, from left
above, Jordan Freeman and
Kirstie Johnson. At left, is Blake
Bennett. Tackling the high ropes
course was both a fun chal-
lenge and a team-building
exercise at the camp said
Sandy Bennett, wife of the

different at

Nease and

Fletcher this

grid season


;^: strength of schedule" is a
term thrown about when
Trying to rank college
football teams, but it also
comes into play for high
schools as well.
This season, for example,
Fletcher High will take on 10
teams with a combined 2006
record of 57-52.
Of those, Bartram Trail is
probably the strongest, finish-
ing last year at 10-3. The
Senators will host the Bears on
Nov. 2, Week 10 of the season.
Nease High, on the other
hand, faces one of the tough-
est schedules in recent memo-
ry by playing 10 games :
against opponents that com-'
bined to go 79-39 last season.
The Panthers' slate is chock
full of teams that went deep
into the 2006 playoffs, includ-
ing district champions Citra
North Marion (10-4), Madison
County (10-3), Daytona
Mainland (13-1), and St.
Augustine (11-2).
While this can be consid-
ered another rebuilding year
at Fletcher the team will
employ a spread-style offense
hlf the time, and coaches are,
still evaluating the attributes
of three varsity quarterbacks
the Senators have enough
weapons to run roughshod
over opponents if things fall
into place.
But that's a big "if" given .
Fletcher's disappointing 3-7
campaign last year. Most of
the questions are on defense,
although that unit performed
better than expected in last
week's preseason Kickoff
Classic loss to Wolfson.
Fact is, with a slew of offen-
sive playmakers, a new
scheme designed to get the
ball into those players' hands
and a schedule loaded with
cupcakes like Paxon (3-7),
Stanton (3-7) and Wolfson (3-
8), the Senators should be able
to score points this season.
Whether that will translate
into victories remains to be
seen,
Expectations around th6
Neptune Beach school are not
for a deep postseason run,
merely an improvement over
last year's performance and
that seems clearly within
reach.
In Ponte Vedra, there is a
different set of expectations.
The Panthers won a state title
in 2005 and reached the Class
4A championship game again
last season, falling to Tampa
Plant 25-21 in a thriller.
Coach Craig Howard runs
his spread offense with the
stated goal of putting up 50
points a game. Opponents not
only have to figure out a way
to stop the Panthers, but must
hope to score each'time they
get the ball as well.
Nease is 27-3 over the past
two seasons but hasn't faced
the type of competition it will
see in 2007. The reason
Howard can take such risks
against big-time opponents is
because the Panthers are a vir-
tual lock to win their district
and make the playoffs.
While Nease won't receive
any extra credit for undertak-
ing a murderous schedule,
Howard's objective is to test
his team against the best out
there if only to see how it
measures up.
It's a testament to the confi-
dence Howard has in his team
that he would elect to endure
such a rigorous regular-season
slate knowing full well the
only payoff Panthers fans care
about is a deep run into the
postseason. Armed with offen-
sive firepower similar to recent
years and a stout defense, look
for Nease to be playing in
December.

find areas the team will address

"Too many errors," she said


when asked what she didn't like
about her team's performance.
"We were out of rotation, we
missed too many serves and
sometimes [the players] didn't
know when they were supposed
to be substituting in.


"Those are all things we'll
work on as the season progress-

Alexander regains form upon return to Jacksonville


By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COLUMNIST
If the bullpen is one of the problems
the Jacksonville Suns face in
the windup of the Southern
League season and playoffs,
one improvement has been
the rejuvenation of Mark
Alexander.
A year ago, the right-hander
who hails from
Independence, Missouri
(Harry Truman might have .
loved him!) was so effective as
a reliever he was recipient of
the Branch Rickey Minor
League Pitcher of the Year
Award. His future looked daz-
zling.
Last spring, the Dodgers
promoted Alexander to their
Triple-A ballclub in Las Vegas,
but the move didn't take. The
pitcher's brilliance of 2006 in
Jacksonville 0.96 ERA in 47
innings mainly as a closer
and 26 saves suddenly Mark A
looked like a mirage in the
Nevada desert.


Before the 51s' 2006 season had
ended, Alexander's short promotion to
Vegas resulted in a 2-1 record with a 3.14


A


,ii
Bf


Ile


ERA and one save,' a good record for a
youngster on the second-highest level of
baseball. It was almost a cinch that the
righty would open this year at Vegas and
continue to do good work,
but, strangely, it didn't turn
S out that way.
In 12 games, Alexander was
S. 0-0 with an eye-bulging 14.25
ERA and 19 walks against 14
Strikeouts.
So back to Jacksonville he
came, naturally with mixed
emotions. And also just as
naturally, Alexander was
welcomed by Suns president
Peter Bragan and manager
John Shoemaker with the
Proverbial open arms.
Shoemaker wasn't alarmed
that the man who once
S served as his bullpen ace
hadn't set the woods on fire
at the Triple-A level. The
S manager and pitching coach
Danny Darwin, now in his
second season with the Suns,
just went to work and gave
'xander Alexander both opportuni-
ties and mental boosts to
restore the pitcher's battery.
It wasn't difficult. The 26-year-old
from the Show Me State isn't doubtful


regarding his chores. He's smart enough
to know what he'd been doing different-
ly in Las Vegas.
"The atmosphere out here has a lot to
do with the kind of pitching Mark does,"
Shoemaker explains. "The ball doesn't
function as well as in this climate. Then,
too, I think he was losing his confidence
when things weren't going as they had
here. It's natural.
"Now he's back on track and pitching
as he did for us last year, and we sure can
use it now at this point of the season.
I'm confident now in our relievers."
Then, when it looked as though,
Alexander was through with shaky
innings, the pitcher gave the Suns some-
thing to remember him by. Against
Mississippi on Aug. 23, he suddenly
loaded the bases on two hits and a walk
with nobody out. It looked like another
game Jacksonville was throwing away.
Shoemaker looked on from the dugout
in horror and simply sighed.
But not to worry. Alexander the great
just buckled down and got out of trouble
by striking out the side. No sweat at'
least from the man on the mound. Mark
took some ribbing from his mates, espe-
cially his next locker neighbor and pal
Justin Orenduff, but the pitcher is used
to that. Alexander is a kidder himself
and knows the give-and-take amongst


teammates is a prime part of the game.
"You'll do anything to attract itten-
tion; won't you?" Suns teammates
joked.
Alexander is a sandy-haired, good-
natured young fellow who, like
Jonathan Meloan, also now in Vegas, has
a Huck Finn quality mischievous
expressions and twinkling eyes.
Suns who catch him, A.J. Ellis and
Alberto Concepcion, like Alexander's
attitude and his pitching. Backstops love
to work with talented pitchers who
know what they're doing on the hill.
"There's no doubt I got my confidence
again when I got back here," says
Alexander. "I won't say I was over-
whelmed at Triple-A, but the atmos-
phere there didn't help my kind of
pitching and I found myself aiming the
ball instead of rearing back and throw-
ing naturally. I guess I was trying too
hard to impress them.
"You've got to have confidence to
have control. That's what pitching takes.
If my slider isn't working, then I'm in
trouble."
A very likeable lad is Huck Finn
Alexander, a pitcher of substance with
the added quality of moxie. Any hurler
who can calmly whiff three straight with
the bases loaded proves that. Alexander
says it's easy when you know how.

Injuries avoided with proper tackling technique


Football is a dangerous
sport, and every parent's
worst nightmare is for
their child to suffer a severe
neck injury.
Catastrophic injuries such as
cervical spine fractures are
extremely uncommon,
although this very thing did
happen to a player in
Jacksonville just two,years ago,
leaving a young man para-
lyzed.
On the national level, in
2005 there were three cata-
strophic spinal injuries, all of
these occurring at the high
school level. Most commonly
this occurs to a defensive play-
er due to improper tackling
techniques, leading with the
head in a downward position,
instead of the recommended
head up position.
One of the best known
sports medicine physicians on
the national stage is Dr. James
Andrews in Birmingham,
Alabama. The Andrews
Institute for Orthopaedics &
Sports Medicine and the
National Athletic Trainers
Association (NATA) has funded
the distribution of a 14-minute
video, "Heads Up: Reducing


F'i ?


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


the Risk of Head and Neck
Injuries in Football." This DVD
educates how athletes should
tackle in order to avoid con-
cussions, neck sprains and cat-
astrophic injuries such as
paralysis and quadriplegia.
Thousands of high schools
across the county, including
football coaches and athletic
directors, have received free
copies of the video to watch
with their players.
Participants in the video
include Tony Dungy, head
coach of the Indianapolis


Colts; Jerry Punch, MD, college
football commentator for ABC
Sports and ESPN; Grant Teaff,
executive director, American
Football Coaches Association,
Ron Courson, ATC, PT, director
of sports medicine at the
University of Georgia and
chairman of NATA.
Courson urges players,
coaches and parents to be
aware of the dangers of head-
down con-
tact and
spearing,
which can
cause cer-
vical spine *
and head
injuries or *T rilS i
even
death. ry m
"Each 6 .0
time a
player ini- h-en
tiates con-
tact with
his head
down, he risks quadriplegia,
and every time a player initi-
ates contact head first, he
increases the risk of concus-
sion" notes Courson.
Continued education of the
athlete and coaches is impor-
tant. About 300,000 people a


year suffer a concussion during
sports or recreational activities,
and players must come out of
,the game even if they insist
they feel fine. Everyone
involved needs to realize that
concussions are brain injuries
and should be treated cautious-
ly.
Furthermore, if one suffers a
second concussion before the
brain recovers from the first,
the so
called "sec-
Swe ini an ond
impact
with syn-
he r drome,"
severe
ad brain
injury and
ti- even death
t h d i can occur.
The
sy Th r DVD
empha-
.h sizes cor-
rect tech-
niques when initiating contact
with an opponent.
"The best way is to keep
your head up. See what you hit
and hit with your shoulder,"
says Tony Dungy, who
emphasizes that "it really does-
n't matter what position you


play or where you are on the
field. The object of the colli-
sions is to deliver a blow and
come out of it in great shape."
Coaches should also encour-
age heads up ball carrying
when being tackled, instead of
trying to lower the head and
"run through" and opponent.
This can be a dangerous activi-
ty and can cause cervical spine
and cerebral injuries as well
The DVD was developed to
educate athletes playing under
NCAA and National Federation
of State High School
Association's updated rules
regarding head-first contact
known as spearing.
The NCAA rule states, "No
player shall use his helmet
(including the face mask) to
butt or ram an opponent or
attempt to punish him. No
player shall strike a runner
with the crown or the top of
his helmet in an attempt to
punish him."
The NFHS removed the word
"intentional" from its spearing
rule. Grant Teaff, executive
director of the American
Football Coaches Association,
stated that "the new rule was a
very important signal sent out
across the world of football


that we are now making sure
you understand that you tackle
with your eyes, so you are able
to see who you are attacking or
what you're tackling."
To stress the importance of
this issue, the Andrews
Institute encourages all athletic
trainers, coaches and officials
to obtain the video and share
it with their athletes.
Copies can be obtained to
share with youth, high school
and collegiate teams, as well as
representatives of major youth
sports organizations.

What do Dwayne "The
Rock" Johnson and
your Grandma have
in commQn? They both
should practice lunging and
squatting regularly.
Yes, you heard me right.
While The Rock performs
these exercises primarily to
increase his muscle mass, they
are just as important for your
Grandma (and you) to do.
You see, in
the fitness
world, the Rock
and your
Grandma aren't
very different
from each
other they're
merely on
opposite ends
of the training
spectrum in
terms of inten-
sity and ability
(unless, of
course, your LEAH FAE
Grandma can CONTR
bench press 335
pounds).
Although they are efficient
at increasing muscle mass if
done in the right manner,
lunging and squatting are
much more important than
that.
These two exercises allow us
to accomplish the majority of
tasks demanded of us
throughout the day, from get-
ting out of bed, to cleaning up
something spilled on the floor.
Keeping your body used to
doing lunges and squats will
keep back, hip and knee aches
and pains at bay, helping you
feel more energized and


active. It will also prevent big-
ger injury problems in the
future.
Even elderly people and
people recovering from injury
should practice some kind of
squat and lunge in order to
improve their range of motion
and condition their joints. Of
course, that doesn't mean
they should be doing heavy
barbell squats, but even body-
weight squats and lunges can
have a signifi-
cant effect on
strength.
On the shal-
lower side,
lunges and
squats are some
of the most
IBUeffective exercis-
es in existence,
especially if they
S are combined
ii y th upper body
exercises into a
total body
COCHRAN movement.
faBUTOR Both exercises
work your
quadriceps,
glutes and hamstrings, which
are three of your body's
biggest muscles. That means,
if they are working properly
they have the ability to signif-
icantly increase your metabo-
lism and change your body
composition.
Although most people are
familiar with basic squat and
lunge form, it's worth going
over again because doing
them wrong can put bad stress
on your joints. Once you've
got the basics down, be sure to
try some variations. Variations
keep things interesting and

shouldn't go past your toes.
If you have trouble getting
into this position, hold onto a
railing.in front of you and
squat down, using your arms
as a counterbalance until you
are flexible enough to move to
the floor squat.
Here are some other squats
to try:
Sumo squat: Spread your
feet out much wider than
shoulder width and turn our
toes out as far as they can go.
Hold the weight between your
legs and squat down, again
putting your weight through
your heels and keeping your
chest up. This move integrates
the muscles on the inside of
your leg.
Front-weighted squat: Do a
squat holding a dumbbell,
medicine ball or barbell at
your chest. This forces you to
keep your chest up.and also
activates your core to keep
you from falling forward.

Lunge:
Start with your legs far
apart, one in front of the
other, with your hips facing
forward. Lower yourself down
until both of your legs form a
90-degree angle. Pull through
the heel of your front foot to
come back up, without lean-
ing your body forward. It
should be more of an up-and-
down motion than a forward
motion.
Lateral lunge: Start with a
stance wider than shoulder-
width. Bend one leg and put
all of your weight to one side,
while stabilizing with the
other leg and keeping your
Feet and hips pointed straight
ahead. This move recruits your
outer hips and upper glute
muscles and can also be front
weighted.

16. The last (and only)
time the race has taken
place so late in the year was

a) Tom Skordas was still

I thought that was a pretty
easy quiz. Of course it might
have been harder if I didn't
have the answers right in
front of me.
Even if you didn't fare so
well with your answers the
good news is that you can still
cash in on the free Carrabba's
dinner offer just by signing up


es with upper body exercises
for a quick,, efficient workout.
For example a basic squat gets
a lot more accomplished with
a bicep curl to overhead press
added to the top of it.
Another idea is to add a
twist to your lunge. While you
are lowering yourself down,
twist your arms and shoulders
over your front leg for an
exercise that hits legs and core
in one movement.

YouThbe puts 4-year-old skateboarder in spotlight


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
Skateboarders tapped their
boards in applause for
Patterson Mohrman last
Saturday as the 4-year-old
dropped in on an 8-foot ramp
at Skatelab skate park in
Atlantic Beach. Mohrman did-
n't win the DC Shoes Back-To-
School-Jam, or even place
among the top finishers in the
10-and-under age division. But
his level of skateboarding for
his age is receiving national
attention ever since footage on
YouTube.com, a video sharing
website, was recently picked
up by the Associated Press.
"He can drop in on an 8-
foot ramp and apparently that
is pretty rare for someone his
age," said his mom, Colleen
Mohrman. "His skateboard
instructor made the video, put
it on YouTube and then it was
on MSNBC news. I've also
gotten calls from "Live with
Regis and Kelly," and "The
Ellen Degeneres Show."
Patterson received his first
skateboard as an Easter pres-
ent last spring and started pri-
vate lessons twice a week with
local skateboard instructor
Gus Cooper at Skatelab.
Cooper said he has videos of
lots of local skaters on
YouTube, but Patterson stands
out because he's only four.
"The fact that he can even
drop in or do legit tricks at all
is amazing," said Cooper, 22.
"I've taught kids that young
and it's usually hard for them
to concentrate; they just don't
have the attention span. But
Patterson concentrates really
well."

Neptune Beach, don't skate-
board. They signed their son
up for lessons at Skatelab
because they didn't want him
to get hurt. He became inter-
ested in the sport after watch-
ing the MTV show, "Rob &

professional skater Rob
Dyrdek and his bodyguard,
"Big Black."

Patterson said.

wheels, is over edge of the
ramp and skater tilts forward
to skate down the ramp] and
do rock 'n

then going

"His tricks
are limited
because he's so

Cooper said.

tell he is really See live sur

Other than www.beach


that, he's just

Cooper said he is always
making videos for skaters to
show their tricks and skills so
they can seek out sponsor-
.ships. Patterson is sponsored
by Sunrise Surf Shop in
Jacksonville Beach but he did-

noticed locally.
"Basically they give him T-
shirts, help out with the cost
of boards and give us a team

Colleen said.
"Every time
we [went] into
the shop he
would grab a

skate and they
were
impressed.
They asked us
if they could

on Oct. 12.
The amphitheater, on
Anastasia Island off State
Road A1A, went through a
multiyear, multimillion dol-
lar renovation.
The community has got-
ten a look at the new venue
during a few, mostly private
events this month, but
Sunday is the official open-
ing.
The venue opened in


1965 with the premier of
"Cross and Sword," a the-
atrical rendition of the
founding of St. Augustine.
The play was offered for
10 weeks every summer in
the 2,000-seat amphitheater.
The Florida Legislature des-
ignated "Cross and Sword"
the official state play in
1973.
The aging structure, how-
ever, fell into disrepair, and
"Cross and Sword" closed
after its 1996 season.
To get to the amphithe-
ater from the Beaches, take
State Road A1A south into
St. Augustine and across the
temporary Bridge of Lions
to Anastasia Island.
Continue south on A1A and
look for "Event Parking"
signs.
Onsite parking is limited,
and shuttle buses will be
provided to and from satel-
lite parking spots.

FROM STAFF
Morihiko Nakahara is the
new associate conductor for
the Jacksonville Symphony
Orchestra.
Nakahara makes his debut
when he leads the "Barbeque
of Seville" on Oct. 24.
"I am delighted to welcome
Morihiko to the Jacksonville
Symphony family," said JSO
music director and principal
conductor Fabio Mechetti.
"He is one of the most gift-
ed, devoted and creative,
young conductors I have
known and I am sure he will
bring a lot of enthusiasm and


great music-making to
Jacksonville."
"One of the true rewards of
a staff conductor position like
this is a wide variety of reper-
toire and concert settings,
from Bach to the Beach Boys
and everything in between,"
said Nakahara, who recently
completed a six-year tenure as
music director and conductor
of the Holland Symphony
Orchestra in Michigan.
He succeeds Michael
Butterman, now with the
Boulder Philharmonic and
Shreveport Symphony

CONTRIBUTOR
To many teenage girls, Neil
Gaiman and Charles Vess are
familiar names.
Some might .describe their
"graphic novels" as just a
step away from the sappy
pulp romance paperbacks
that sell in the millions -
though others would call the
storytelling inspired.
Whatever your opinion,
,you'll need to like fantasies
such as "The Princess Bride"
to enjoy "Stardust." With its
PG-13 rating, it's aimed at
youth and it's filled with
imaginative imagery.
It begins with scenes about
an English wall. It divides
the magical land of
Stormhold from England,
and the sole way in is guard-
ed by a crotchety constable.


Charlie Cox knows little
about the wall or his con- -
nection with it as a babe in
arms. He only knows he
loves a local lass who's indif-
ferent to his charms. She's
planning to marry a sophis-
ticate in just a week, and
Cox isn't it. She is, however,
a flirt, and when a shooting.
star falls on the Stormhold
side of the wall. he extracts a
promise. If he fetches it, will
she marry him instead? The
answer is yes, and the quest
begins.
After crossing the mystical
wall, Cox becomes embroiled
in an unending series of
dangers. Initially, he finds
the shooting star, despite its
gigantic crater, is really
Claire Danes. Somehow it's
Cox's fault she's been
pulled from the firmament
and has fallen to Earth. From


the moment of arrival, she's
stalked by danger. It seems
Michelle Pfeiffer, as one of
Stormhold's three witches
knows if she cuts Pfeiffer's
heart out, both she and her
sisters can regain their lost
youth. Pfeiffer immediately
begins a pursuit. Then Mark
Strong, the heir to
Stormhold's throne, begins
seeking the fallen star.
There's a legendary necklace
she supposedly possesses
that's needed to.ensure his
throne. For the villains, it's
both a quest and a chase!
It's here something really
strange occurs. Robert
DeNiro turns up as a pirate
in an airship designed to
bottle lightning. Though he
becomes Cox's friend, he has
the habit of cross-dressing. It
has little to do with the two-
hour story but provides

comic relief. Few but DeNiro 399
could bring such a question- .. of'.
able role to life.
Further details would only -
spoil this flick's enjoyment.
Be aware, though, Cox's per- -
formance and that of Ms.
Danes are barely acceptable.
Surprisingly, these two veter- F*
ans lack the fire necessary to.
light the screen. Perhaps it's
director Matthew Vaughn
who so decreed as he also
helped write the screenplay
with Jane Goldman (no
apparent credits).
"Stardust" is in no way a

quality of breast healthcare -

The Time Has Come!
Breast cancer is a disease with a rather unpredict-
able outcome and is the second leading cause of

women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year
and 45,000 women die of this disease every year in
the United States alone.
Dr. Shahla Masood is an internationally recognized
expert in breast cancer diagnosis and prognosis and
has fostered the concept of a multidisciplinary
approach in breast cancer care, research and

Grange track record due to winemaker grooming


Peter Gago shoulders a
heavy responsibility.
He's the current wine-
maker behind the legendary
Grange, a handful of interna-
tional wines so exalted that it
belongs in a museum. Since
the wine was first bottled in
the 1950s, Grange has mirac-
ulously lived up to a reputa-
tion that has eluded even
first-growth Bordeaux. The
reason for such a iconic track
record is the careful groom-
ing of each winemaker who is
slowly introduced to the
process.
He isn't given a chance to
experiment. "We don't
change style, we optimize
each vintage," he said during
a recent wine dinner spon-
sored by Bay Ridge Wine &
Spirits and Sam's Waterfront
Cafe.
Grange may be Penfolds
most famous wine, but it cer-
tainly isn't its only premium
wine. A great fan of this
Australian producer, we regu-
larly track its bevy of luxuri-
ous shiraz and cabernet
sauvignon. Even if you can-
not afford $280 for a bottle
of Grange, there are several
substitutes to consider.
Mr. Gago said "Grange is
just the carrot" to introduce
consumers to other wines.

Perhaps he meant "carat."
We tasted several vintages
of Penfolds Bin 707
Cabernet Sauvignon and
were blown away by their
depth. We doubt that most
wine consumers think of
Australian for its long-lived
cabernet sauvignons, but the
1990 still had life on it.
The 2002 Penfolds St.
Henri Shiraz ($35) had great
power for the price, yet
oodles of unadulterated fruit,
balance and silky tannins.
Mr. Pago called it a "textural
experience."
There are wines more rea-
sonable in price. The frugal
consumer should look to the


10 a.m. every Saturday at Let's

Vedra Beach. Pre-registration is
required. Classes are designed to
teach participants how to keep

Club. The FMS band will per-
form. Tickets are $8 for adults,


2003 Penfolds Bin 28
Kalmina Shiraz ($20) and
the 2004 Bin 128 Shiraz
($22), two great wines that
can be enjoyed now or cel-
lared for several more years.
Its Koonunga Hills series is in
the $15 range. We tasted a
1976 Koonunga Hills Claret,
a blend of shiraz and caber-
net sauvignon, that was still
holding up.
Those lucky enough to
have a seat for this spectucu-
lar tasting were treated to a
great food and wine pairing.
The menu included
Queensland Spanner crab,
crocodile tail, Australian beef,
grilled Wagyu sirloin and
more.
Here are our tasting notes
of some of the wines:
Penfolds Thomas Hyland
Chardonnay 2006 ($13).
Peach aromas followed by
mineral and grapefruit fla-
vors. It has been entirely bar-
rel fermented but with no
new oak, so the oak flavors
are restrained.
Penfolds Bin 138 Barossa
Valley Shiraz-Grenache-
Mouvedre 2003 ($20). A
pleasant blend of grapes
grown on 40-year-old vines.
Plummy aromas, chocolate
and red fruit flavors, especial-
ly raspberries. Rich in mid


$5 for students and siblings.
There will be limited walk-in
dinner availability. A brief PTSA
meeting will be held during the
dinner. Open House begins at

palate, finished with silky,
dusty tannins.
Penfolds Bin 28 Kalmina
Shiraz 2003 ($20). Cherry
and cinnamon aromas fol-
lowed by ripe berry and plum
flavors and the classic mocha
notes associated with this
grape variety. It showed a
touch of vanilla and had rich
texture. One of our favorite
wines of the night.
Penfolds 128 Coonawara
Shiraz 2004 ($22); More flo-
ral than the Bin 28, this wine
sports pepper, cola and black-
berry aromas. The palate
shows off a wide range of lay-
ered flavors ranging from
licorice to blackberries.
Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz
2002 ($35). A very elegant
but powerful wine with cellar
potential. Cassis and black-
berry notes with spice and
easy tannins. Another one of
our favorite wines of the
night.
Penfolds Grange 2002
($278). We.have a couple of
old Granges in our cellar that
we just don't want to drink
because of their history. We
lament that these wines are
now well out of our price
range, but we enjoyed this
opportunity to taste such lux-
ury. It's hard to describe what
makes this wine so good: is it

What first impression is your home creating?


Some simple ideas
for kicking up your
curb appeal
our hair is shiny and
blown dry to perfec-
tion; makeup applied to
bring out your best features.
The summery cotton dress
you slip into hugs you in all
the right places. You slide on
your strappy sandals, stand
in front of the mirror and
scream! You haven't shaved
your legs in a week. Ugh!
Within seconds, your self-
esteem plummets.
Just as with your appear-
ance, it's all about grooming
but in this case, the objective,
is grooming the front of your
home. Yes, it's great to paint,
upgrade, and'renovate the
interior of your house but
the exterior can be just as
important if you want to cre-
ate a true haven. It's the way
your home "greets" the world
and when you neglect it, it's
like a bad blind date "My
house has inner beauty but
the outside has a great 'per-
sonality'."
The front of your house
should also be a venue for
expressing your creativity.
The decorative bridge
between your front yard to
your front door can easily be
tackled without taking weeks
and weeks of backbreaking
labor. A little imagination,
research and little bit of time
can give your place a serious
kick of curb appeal.
A Few Simple Ideas
Container Gardening:
Containers of beautiful
blooms on both sides of your
front steps are a way of giv-
ing guests a bouquet of flow-
ers as they approach the
front door. With container
gardening, you get the.dou-
ble-your-pleasure benefit of
flowers planted in richly col-
ored ceramic, wooden, or
terra cotta pots. Some are
made of lightweight plastics
that mimic marble and can
easily be moved to wherever
you need a pop of color
Window Boxes: How cool is
it to be able to pluck fresh
herbs from your own window
box or to surround your
house with the fresh smell of
lavender? Or, filled with
flowers, your house can have
a storybook appearance and
offer color inside and outside


HEIDI BAKER and
EDEN JARRIN
'Be Jane'
at the same time. Window
boxes are also a great way to
experiment with different
plants like succulents and
cactus. For instructions on
installing window boxes,
check out our how-to article
at BeJane.com.
Deck the Walls: Carve out
an element of surprise in
your front yard with a path
that leads to a garden orna-
ment or small fountain.
There are plenty of easy to
assemble kits; many can be
mounted on a stand or a


nearby wall. Add a few chairs
or a bench and you can
transform an unused area of
your front yard into an oasis
of trickling water that guests
and passers-by will enjoy.
Front Door Decor: Have
some fun. Paint the front
door a bold color here's
your chance to get that crav-
ing for Chinese red out of
your system. Also, check out
the wild and crazy knockers
and knobs that range from
modern to antique replicas.
Mat-ter of Fact: More than
dirt-catchers, welcome mats
are a great way to greet peo-
ple as they ring your bell.
Personalize yours by stencil-
ing your initials or you can,
purchase one of the more
ornate filigree aluminum
styles.
Remember, you'll only get
one chance to make that first
impression. And a simple
upgrade doesn't have to take
much time or money-it just
takes the gumption to get up
and do it. Here's to taking
that first step!

tion and more great projects

son has been uneventful for the
Beaches area, mid-September is
generally considered the height
off the hurricane season
Keeping your pet safe during a

tion requires preparation and
the proper equipment.
According to petplan.com you

ter for your pet as you would for
yourself. Listed below are useful
tips to ready your pet for incase
of emergency.
BEFORE THE DISASTER
Make sure that your pets are
current on their vaccinations.
Pet shelters may require proof of
vaccines.
Have a current photograph
Keep a collar with identifica-
tion on your pet and have a
leash on hand to control your
pet.
Have a properly-sized pet
carrier for each animal carriers
should be large enough for the
animal to stand and turn
around.
Plan your evacuation strate-
gy and don't forget your pet!
Specialized pet shelters, animal
control shelters, veterinary clin-
ics and friends and relatives out


of harm's way are ALL potential
refuges for your pet during a dis-
aster.
If you plan to shelter your

Frisco in particular is known in the
area for always saying "hello" from
the deck to all dogs passing the
house throughout the day. They both
love taking car trips and especially
like trips to the drive-through bank
lane where they are always greeted
with a special treat from the tellers.

In order to make your h
selling process easier and
shorter, consider staging
Staging is the process of
than just doing repairs a
cleaning. It's the final s
that makes your house s
"Wow!" to buyers with i
good repair and attractive
good looks. Why bothe
Because the longer your

your house will be on th

the length of time your

Staging can make the di

C. ":
The difference between.
show condition and livi.
condition in homes is h
When a home is kept in
normal living condition
not suitable for selling.
Because the sales market
now flooded with people
wanting out of their hoi
(and corresponding mor
gages), the sales market
tougher and tighter and
competition for home se
is stiff. In sales, you wai
give customers every rea


say yes and as few reasons as
possible to say no. When
your home isn't in a selling,
or staged, state it won't sell as
quickly and the higher the
price of your home, the more
this applies.


S When it comes to getting
your home in show condition,
prepare for some work. Some
advisers may tell you to cut
the price of your home
ER instead of telling you to clear
IST the slate and make your home
show-model quality. That's
because it's usually easier to
s that get a seller to cut the price
quick- than to stage it. And that's
nus too bad, because those who
house. do make the effort are reward-
ome ed with a faster sale much
d faster in some cases. My
g" neighbors recently sold their
more house in an hour. An hour.
and And part of it was because
tep they got their home in show

anger.
ie If you want to sell your
ake home, you can't be resentful
house about making an effort to put
ssible. your house into its best condi-
ffer- tion. Think of it as dating. If
you put your house on the
market as is, it's like going on
a first date in your sweats.
You wouldn't do that, but sell-
n ers do it all the time and get
ng very indignant that the buyer
uge. should see the inner beauty of
a their home. It's like asking
,it's someone to see your inner
beauty when you're in paja-
is mas and have bed head.

quickly and sell for the best
price. The goal is to create an
attractive yet neutral environ-
ment that looks like anyone
could live there. If you want
to sell your home and make
this effort, you'll be ahead of
the curve.
If you're not sure what stag-
ing is, go and visit some
model homes and notice how
they look. You won't see
trash in the trash cans, toast-
ers in the kitchen, or personal
products on bathroom coun-
ters. But you will find attrac-
tive plants and pretty cook-
books on countertops and
coordinated furniture and
accessories. Staging is the
process of making your home


into a model home with
attractive decorating to help
attract a buyer. And that's the
goal: to create an environ-
ment that gives buyers all the
reason to say yes to your
home and every reason to say
no to other homes.

HAMBURGER PREP I buy
chopped meat when it's on
sale in bulk. I then shape the
patties. To store them in the
freezer, I use a large Chinese
soup container. I keep the pat-
ties separated by wrapping
each one individually in plas-
tic wrap. When it's time to
make the burgers, I simply pop
out what I need, defrost them
and cook. Fran C.

QUICK DRY Everyone
knows that a salad spinner
doesn't always dry the lettuce
well. I find that if I place a
paper towel or two in with the


wet greens and spin, all the
moisture is removed. This way,
when I serve the salad, the
dressing adheres nicely to the
greens. Carol T.

LEFTOVER WALLPAPER We
recently put up wallpaper in
our living room. I used what
was left over to make pretty
covers for my scrapbooks and
photo albums. It also makes
great, durable covers for kids'
school books. Kelly M.
* *
SNEAKY VEGGIES Instead
of using shredded lettuce for
sandwiches and tacos, I use
cabbage. My kids don't know
the difference, and they're get-


ting a nice helping of vegeta-
bles without all the "yucks"
that usually accompany them!
Mandy F.

CRUNCHY COATING -
Instead of buying expensive
breading for my chicken and
pork chops, I use cornflakes. I
put the cornflakes in a plastic,
resealable bag, close it, and
then crush with a rolling pin.
After the cereal is crushed, I
season it with salt, pepper and
whatever else strikes my fancy,
such as onion powder or
cayenne pepper. I then use this
mixture to coat what I'm mak-
ing. It's easy, delicious and
doesn't hurt my budget. Linda


S.

HOLD IT! -I inherited some
pieces of china from my moth-
er. However, it wasn't a match-
ing set. To make use of the odd
pieces, I use the pretty teacups
on my dresser to hold jewelry.
In the kitchen, I have one for
keys and pens. They're handy
and decorative at the same
time. Julie K.
