Citing 'tax climate' AB rejects art buy

An art sculpture valued at approxi-
mately $95,000 will not be erected in
Atlantic Beach.
After some debate, the Atlantic Beach
City Commission Monday voted 3-2
against releasing $45,000 from an art
fund for a bronze sculpture of a girl rid-
ing a sea turtle.
The $45,000, which is budgeted for the
current fiscal year but has not been
spent, comes from bed tax funds and
must be spent on projects that would
promote tourism, according to City
Manager Jim Hanson. Jacksonville City

Councilor Art Graham was willing to
Donate $50,000 for the project.
"This money has to be used for beauti-
fication. That's what it's earmarked for,"
said Ray Coleman, a member of the
Atlantic Beach Public Art Commission.
The project was initiated approximate-
ly three and a half years ago by the arts
commission, but some Commissioners
said that there is too much fiscal uncer-
tainty right now to spend on art.
"I love public art. But to spend public
money on public art in today's economy
is fiscal irresponsibility," said
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher.

Commissioner Dezmond Waters said
he felt that this was a matter of "honor-
ing your obligations."
"Those obligations are three and a half
years old. The tax climate has changed,"
Wolfson said to Waters.
Both Wolfson and Simmons said that
the private sector should be the most
heavily involved in buying art.
Since the $45,000 will not be released
from the art fund it will be put back into
the fund balance, according to Finance
Director Nelson Van Liere.
Commissioners Mike iBorno and
Waters voted in favor of the purchase.

Amending the city's sign ordinance to
include the definition of an art project
may help clear up some of.the confusion
over what constitutes a sign in Neptune
The Neptune Beach City Council held
a special meeting Monday to clarify the
city's sign ordinance after a local busi-
ness ran into some confusion as to why
a mural painted on its building was con-
sidered a sign by the city.
.Vice Mayor Harriet Pruette introduced
an ordinance to amend the city's sign
ordinance to include a section on art.
An "art project" is defined as "any
mural, illustration, painting or sculpture

that is approved by the City Council as
art that enhances the commercial dis-
trict," according to the proposed ordi-
nance, which .passed on first reading at
Monday's meeting.
"This provides us with a procedure for
making decisions regarding public art,
but it doesn't change the definition of a
sign," said Councilor John Weldon. "I
think it clarifies an area that clearly
needs clarification."
The proposed ordinance would
require an owner to complete an appli-
cation with the building department.
The application would be reviewed by
the Planning and Development Review
Board and then the City Council.
The City Council would have the.

authority to place conditions for
approval on the proposed project and
the owner would be required to main-
tain the art in good condition.
If the artwork deteriorates over time,
the Council would have sole discretion
and could require the applicant to
remove it.
Although the proposed ordinance is
not directed at any specific business, the
issue arose when ownersof a moving
company had a sun and moon painted
on the side of the business.
They considered it art and did not
seek a sign permit through the city.
Brown said at Monday's meeting that
this proposed ordinance would provide
a clearly defined permitting process.

The new Jacksonville Beach
Community Center at South Beach
Parkway will be the site of an open
house on Sept. 28. The event will be
open to all. The city's recreation
department moved into the facility
this week. See story on page A-6

Atlantic Beach voters to decide 2 commission races

Two referendums
on Oct. 2 ballot
Citizens of Atlantic Beach
will have the opportunity to
vote on two referendums at
the Oct. 2 election.
The first referendum
allows citizens to vote on
whether the city should
change from an at-large vot-
ing system to one based on
*If the referendum passes,
each commission member
will be required to live in
the district or precinct from
which he or she runs.
*The city would be divid-
ed into four districts.
*Candidates will be voted
on citywide.
A committee was appoint-
ed by the Commission to
study district representa-
tion. According to Mayor
Don Wolfson, these were
the committee's findings:
*gives all groups espe-
cially those within a certain
geographic base a better
chance of being represented
on the Commission.

tant factor in decisions con-
cerning the geographic loca-
tion of new city facilities

ple, stop signs, trash collec-
*District elections may

bringing city government
closer to the people
*Commissions elected by
district may have more con-
*Commissions elected by
district may be less efficient
because of district specific
issues versus a broader con-
stituency perspective.
Some observers have said
the change could leader to
fewer contested races and
offer qualified candidates
fewer opportunities to seek

If passed, the second ref-
erendum would change the
timing of various steps relat-
ed to Atlantic Beach elec-
tions, according to a memo
from City managerr Jim'
Hanson, who refetred-t~othe,
amendment as primarily a
"housekeeping" issue.
The changes would allow
the Supervisor of Elections
more time to print and dis-
tribute absentee ballots.
It would also increase the
amount of time between
the end of the qualifying
period and the primary elec-
tion. The time between the
primary and general elec-
tion would also change.
Due to changes in state
laws, final election results
cannot be obtained on the
night of the election,
according to Hanson.

Beaches Watch, which
hosted a forum for the
Atlantic Beach City
Council candidates last
week, has posted informa-
tion about the candidates
on the group's web site.
Candidate information
is available at the group's
website at www.beach- The online
information contains a
short profile about the
candidate and answers to
a Beaches Watch Q&A on
specific Atlantic Beach
issues such as district rep-
iesentation, community
character, growth, public
safety and more.
"Beaches Watch pro-
motes citizen education
on local issues and partic-
ipation in local govern-
ment," said Beaches
Watch president Sandy
Golding. "Thq election of
our city officials is one of
the most important ways
citizens can participate in
their local government.
Through our public
forum and online candi-
date Q&A, voters can find
out more about the candi-
dates and make a more
informed decision on
election day."
Beaches Watch is a non-
profit, non-partisan
group of concerned citi-
zens. This year's forum
drew more than 200.

Fletcher is running for at-large
City Commission seat two.
He said he believes in "building
bridges" and closing the gap
between other Beach cities and
especially the city of Jacksonville
by trying to get the county to
align its priorities with Atlantic
Beach on several matters, includ-
ing zoning on consistencies.
While he said he believes in
fighting for what is yours, Fletcher
said that diplomacy comes first,
especially regarding experiences
with the city of Jacksonville.

Fletcher said that one of his
goals is to work toward reducing
crime along Mayport Road and
clean up the area.

where crime is most prevalent.

In discussing a proposal to cre-
ate district residency requirements
for commissioners, Fletcher said
that the current at-large system
provides the "broadest view".
Instead of creating district repre-
sentation, he said that the solution
should be actively recruiting peo-
ple from the west side of Mayport

Another issue that Fletcher
would address is the amount of
staff involvement in terms of poli-
cy making.
"There's too much involvement
from staff in policy making," he
said. If elected, he would work for
more leadership on the
Commission and "push back on
staff involvement with policy
He cited a leadership vacuum in
the city as part of the problem. He
noted that the community as a
whole has taken on an activist
tone a policy which, he said, is
not sustainable in the long term.

Protecting quality of life in
Atlantic Beach is the issue fac-
ing the city, according to com-
mission candidate Carolyn
Woods, who is running for
at-large City Commission seat
two, said that maintaining and
preserving the quality of life in
Atlantic Beach is essential.
Her background in landscape
development has helped her
recognize the importance of
the aesthetics of development
as well as the importance of
how a city guides its codes and
zoning, she said.
"The pressure to develop is
incredible," she said. '.Cities
have a right to chose what
direction they want to go in."
Woods has served on the-
Community Development
Board for four years and has
seen first-hand how issues with
development and community
character have caused divisive-
ness in the community, she
"I've, really tried in that role
[as a member of the CDB] to
reach the middle ground," she
She said those who engage in
inflammatory talk, such as over
development issues, should be
called on it and encouraged to
Woods said that she believes
in smart growth and neighbor-
ly development
"There has to be a balance
between what you do on your
property and how it affects
your neighbor," she said.
Woods added that Atlantic
Beach is a tight-knit communi-
ty and its value comes from
other areas besides just the
square-footage of its structures,
she said.
Curbing crime on Mayport
Road is also an important con-
cern for Woods.
"I think it's going to take a
lot of community involve-
ment," she said, noting that
reports of taxis bringing drug
buying customers to homes in
the area are disturbing.
Woods said that setting up
neighborhood watch programs
in which citizens kept a log of
all incidents might help reduce
some of the crime in the area.
"If we turn it into a culture in
our will help," she
said referring to the programs
and keeping records.
i Woods also suggested mov-
ing the police headquarters to
the Mayport Road vicinity
where it will be highly visible.
She also suggested that some,
of the vacant lands in Atlantic
Beach could be turned into ball
fields where children could
have the opportunity to inter-
act and become familiar with
police officers.
"There's definitely a discon-
nect between the two sides of
Atlantic Beach," said Woods,
adding she strongly favors dis-
tricting. She suggested that
leaders should be developed in
the area west of Mayport Road,
she said.
"I would love to see the
whole area united," she said.
"We have to chip at it from dif-
ferent directions."
She also said that she would
like the city to have a more for-
mal relationship with the

*Former Atlantic Beach

Paul Parsons, a former
Atlantic Beach Commissioner,
said he believes in hard work
and getting things done.
Parsons is running for at-
large City Commission seat
"I'm the type of guy who is
willing to dig my heels in and
get the stuff done for the citi-
zens," he said.
*Parsons said he agrees with
how the city handled the
upcoming fiscal year budget.
He noted that he questioned
some past expenditures, citing,
for example, that he .would
have used staff for some of the
work that consultant Nori
Winter did on community
He also said that he believes
infrastructure is something
that cannot be ignored and
that it is essential for a city to
make maintenance a priority.
Parsons also suggested that
the city look into having a JEA
substation at Atlantic Beach
due .to problems that UitiF p,
have had in the past wi'th elec-
itrical outages.
For example, Parsons said
that after a series of hurricane
winds hit the area two years
ago, many citizens lost power
for up to two weeks.
Another issue that Parsons
wants to tackle is reducing the
crime near Mayport Road.
He suggested that a police
substation could be put in the
area and also said installing
brighter lights would help
deter crime.
Adding lights would be a
quick, cost effective solution,
he said.
Describing police protection
as a big issue in the area, he
also suggested considering clos-
ing off certain roads in the area
where there.are known drug
dealers and putting a police
officer on duty.
Parsons said he is opposed to
districts and said that they are
bad for a city of Atlantic
Beach's size.
"If you're going to vote for
someone in a district, it doesn't
make sense that they're voted
on city-wide," he said.
"I don't think our current
system is broken."
Parsons also said that he is
able to work with all levels of
government and is well-con-
nected with officials at the
local and state level.
He has worked with officials
in Jacksonville as well as
Tallahassee to secure the St.
Johns River Ferry in an effort to
preserve Mayport Village and
its lifestyle.

Jonathan Daugherty is run-
ning for Atlantic Beach City
Commission because the neigh-
borhoods west of Mayport Road
need. more representation and
the area needs cleaning uip,.
Daugherty is running for at-

One of his suggestions to alle-
viate some of the crime in the
area would be to put a police
substation in Mayport to make
police presence in that part of
the community highly visible.
Renting space in some existing
commercial space would also be
a low-cost solution for a police
I-bluiding, he said.
He said he is also in favor of
' dishictihg 'so that everyone in
the city is equally represented.
Having district representatives
means that someone has a vest-
ed interest in a specific area, he
Daugherty also said the cam-
paigning could become more
affordable. He noted that he is
spending less than $1,000 to
seek the seat, while others are
loaning themselves thousands.
Daughter said he believes in
responsible development.
"It's not all about cutting, it's
about increasing your bottom
line as well," he said, noting that
government can work with
developers to make sure all
involved are well served.
While he said that spending
money on development is a
necessity, Daughtery also said he
is a fiscal conservative and
believes that government
should not fund art projects.
S"There's a lot of spending that
goes on that seems unneces-
sary," he said.
He suggested a potential bike
ramp that would zig-zag across
Mayport Road, making it safer
for pedestrians and bikers to
cross the street. Improved infra-
structure is also needed in many
areas of the city, he said.
Daugherty said he also sup-
ports the idea of a cruise termi-
nal near the Mayport ferry,
which would help industries
such as hotels and restaurants
while creating jobs.
"We're an island outside a
major metropolis.
Development is going to come,"
he said.

Beach Commissioner
*Former University of North
Florida Psychology Professor

Sylvia Simmons believes that
increasing police presence west
of Mayport Road and protecting
one of Florida's last residential
beaches are paramount issues to
the City of Atlantic Beach.
Simmons .is running for at-
large City. Commission seat
"We've just seen condos
march up the coast," she said.
If elected, Simmons wants to
continue protecting Atlantic
Beach's coast. For example, she
voted for the city's height refer-
endum which limits building
height to 25 feet.
But, she also recognizes that
people can do what they want
with private property.
She said that she has the abil-
ity to do her homework, listen
and find a balance between
community interests.
She said that during the com-
munity character and Selva
Marina development debates,
she knew every number and sta-
tistic involved with the projects
and then thought about hoto
put facts and various pe're
tives together. '" [
During the community char-
acter discussions, Simmons said
that there was an adverse reac-
tion to the term
"Macmansions." She said that
she is not opposed to large hous-
es, but wants mass and scale that
fit the community rather than a
"big box." .
Growing up with Depression
era parents, Simmons said she
knows the importance of being

just stuck with me," she said,
explaining that she is a fiscal
Noting that she loves art, and
even has an art degree, she said
that public art should be paid
for by private funds and not by
Simmons also emphasized the
importance of police presence
on Mayport Road. If re-elected,
she said she would insist that
more officers patrol the Mayport
area. to reduce crime..
If citizens in Mayport had a
representative from that district,
then the Commission would be
more enlightened as to prob-
lems in the area, she said.
"If you don't have feet on the
street, you don't get the same
kind of care," she said.
A Commissioner who lived in
the area would know about pot-
holes or prostitute problems bet-
ter than someone who does not
live there, she said.
If the city builds another
police station, it should be in an
area where its visibility will curb
crime, she said.

confronting one unexpected
issue in this campaign.
"I had a good name until three

referring to voters confusing him
with sitting commissioner Jamie

against supporting the Sea & Sky

fetcher Homecoming to reunite cheerleaders

Kathy Shoemaker, who
teaches English and reading at
Fletcher and is a 1966 graduate
of the high school in Neptune
Beach, was embarrassed when
she told her son she couldn't
call him one day last week.
"'I'm going to cheerleading
practice,'" she said to her son,
who is in college. "And he
laughed, because I'll be 59 on
my next birthday."
Shoemaker is one of perhaps
a dozen Fletcher alumni who
will be joining the school's
cheerleaders on the sidelines
Friday for the Senators' home-
coming game with Stanton
College Preparatory School,
Kelly Sails, Fletcher's first-
year cheerleading coach, hopes
more former Fletcher cheer-
leaders join in
"We decided to get the
alumni involved at the
school," Sails said at a practice
session last week
"We wanted to bring back
anybody who was interested in
Fletcher High was the school
attended by most Ponte Vedra
and Palm Valley teens before
Nease High opened in 1980.
Sails said alums are welcome
to cheer throughout Friday's
game at Jack Taylor Stadium,
although some might "like to

socialize with girls they
haven't seen in years."
The invitation is still open.
"If anybody's still in contact
with people, whether they're
local or not local, if they can't
make a practice, that's OK. We
just want them to come out,
enjoy the experience, be part
of the Fletcher family again."
Among those who have
accepted her invitation are
Shoemaker, who graduated in
1966 under her maiden name,
Kathy Gold; Erinn Hayes, Class
of 2002; and Aftan Sparkman
and Vashawna Thomas, both
"They're very excited to be
coming back," Sails said.
"It's fun to do," said
Shoemaker. "As a teacher here,
that's interesting to me. But
it's kind of funny to be going
to cheerleading practice."
Over the years, Shoemaker
has seen Fletcher cheerleaders
and knows she can't keep up
with them.
"I obviously can't do all
those things they can do,
because I'll break something."
Sails said Shoemaker recently
showed her the uniform she
wore more than 40 years ago.
It's knee-length skirt and long-
sleeved shirt compare with
today's sleeveless, V-neck tops
and skirts that are mid-thigh

Sails, who has had extensive

dance training, said Shoemaker
told her there was no tumbling
of any kind when she was
"I guess they got a real warm
welcome from the crowd if
they built the old-time pyra-
mid," said Sails, who cheered
with the Jaguars as a member of
The Roar in 1995 and 1997.
"We do a lot of tumbling and
stunting now, and they didn't
really do that then. So what

To accommodate commer-
cial airline service, the airport
had to provide "a secured ter-
minal facility" that meets the
requirements of the FAA and
the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA), accord-
ing to Ed Wuellner, executive
director of the St. Augustine
Airport Authority.
Before commercial service
began in July, the airport had
no TSA requirement, Wuellner
The cost of "federalizing" the
airport is borne by ticket pur-
chasers $2.50 per ticket
nationwide not St. Johns
County, he said.
The nearly 12,000-square-
foot terminal was built "in a

record 54 days" at a cost of
about $1.6 million, Wuellner
said in an e-mail message.
The agreement between the
Airport Authority and Skybus
allows the airline to use the ter-
minal, which can be shared if
another airline wants to fly to
St. Augustine, Wuellner said.
The revenue the county gets
from the Skybus service is
from fuel usage, parking, con-
cession and rental car leases
and fees, he said. That is
expected to generate at least
$250,000, he said.
The Airport Authority,
whose tax base is countywide,
adopted its 2007-08 budget
Sept. 19.
The new millage rate of
0.1807 mills a 12 percent
reduction over the current
year's rate is expected to

generate about $4.5 million.
Leases will generate just over
$2 million. A state grant of
nearly $3 million plus other
revenue gives the authority
about $11.3 million in rev-
enue, according to a budget
Wuellner said although the-
Airport Authority is not active-
ly seeking service from addi-
tional commercial airlines, he
"would be surprised if that
doesn't change over the next
year or so."
"It is likely that other airlines
will recognize the market that
seems to be developing out of
St. Johns County," he said.
The Airport Authority proj-
ects the airport will be self-sus-
taining in the future, with
elimination of the property tax
in fiscal 2011, he said.

Municipal Service District (MSD), Tuesday reiter-
ated his concerns about the Coalition's vote.
"Who are these people?," Crane said in a tele-
phone interview. "They say they have 25 mem-
ber organizations, but do they really?" he asked.
"The PVCA and the MSD have web sites. You
can see who is a member. The Coalition doesn't
have a web site, [so] we don't know who they
are," Crane said.
.Cowan said Tuesday that Crane had requested
a list of the Coalition's member organizations,
as well as more information, such as attendance
and voting records of each member, as well as
how they were elected.
Disclosing that information would violate the
privacy rights of the other member organiza-
tions, she said.
"It takes a whole lot of gall to demand to
know how each organization elects its mem-
bers," she said in an interview Tuesday.
"It's a presumptive invasion of the privacy of
those organizations."
Crane also addressed -PVCA\.-directors after
Cowan left the meeting Monda'y.
"I think you're entitled to kno-w who their
[Coalition] members are," Crane said. They're
not elected they're a self-appointed body," he

In a letter to Cowan last week, Palmer said
that passing a resolution without asking for the
input of the PVCA was "irresponsible."
Cowan claimed the vote was fair and legiti-
"We passed a resolution, a procedural resolu-
tion which our bylaws allow us to do."
Under the Coalition's bylaws, only substan-
tive resolutions must be brought to the individ-
ual homeowners' associations for their approval,
Cowan told the PVCA.
Several PVCA directors disagreed with
Cowan's assessment.
"I don't think that vote was procedural," said
PVCA director Mark Arnold.
"I think it should be brought tb the various
homeowners' associations for their approval,"
he added.
"I think it's procedural if we're asking for
county guidance because we can't proceed,"
Cowan responded on Tuesday.
Cowan added, though, that the point was
moot because it appears -the- county ordinamcf
does not allow a moratorium on cell towers.-,

New management, new method

- BUDGET, from A-1

Commissioners approved the extra funds out
of fears that there would be a drastic reduction
in the services provided by those agencies if
they were underfunded.
But some leaders of the agencies said they
might have to cut services anyway, despite the
extra money.
Beth Hughes, executive director of the Betty
Griffin House, said Tuesday she welcomed the
efforts of the commissioners to provide funding,
but more money is needed to sustain her pro-
"I. appreciate that the commissioners recog-
nized that the independent agencies needed to
be funded at a higher level than what was rec-
ommended," she said.
Despite the extra funds, the Betty Griffin
House will be $84,000 short of their original
budget request.
"I still heed to go 'find the money because I
need to keep the crisis hotline open 24/7. I can't
tell a rape victim, 'Don't get raped on Sunday',"
Hughes said.
She added that the way the budget was done
contributed to the low budgets of the agencies.
Commissioners started budgeting for the
independent agencies by agreeing to fund what
was necessary for each agency to receive match-
ing state or federal funding, she explained.
"And then they added on top of that, so agen-
cies that had no match, or low match, were
underfunded," Hughes said.
She stated it was the first year the budget was
done that way.

The new budgeting process also did not please
Stevenson, who said at the Sept. 18 hearing, "I
certainly look forward to doing it better next
During a telephone interview Tuesday,
StevensOn said that excessive turnover in senior
management led to a loss of "institutional
knowledge" that disrupted the budget process.
Several members of senior management,
including former county administrator Ben
Adams, left at the end of 2006.
"You just don't see these kind of changes
without having it reflect [on performance],"
Stevenson said.
She did say she was satisfied with the end
result of the budget process.
"We did it really rough, but we got the job
done. I know we'll have a better budget process
'next year," she said.
From the total budget, an estimated $148 mil-
lion will come from property taxes after com-
missioners lowered the aggregate millage rate to
6.028 from the current year's rate of 6.578.
The '07-'08 budget is down more than $25
million from the current year's budget of $732
The decrease is largely due to the state's prop-
erty tax reform, which required governments to
cut taxes or get more than a majority vote not to
make the cut.
Some of the county's largest expenditures
include transportation, funded at $80 million,
utilities,-funded at $62 million, and public safe-
ty, funded at $30 million.

Contested races do

serve public interest

A mayor should be elected after meaningful public
debate about the issues facing the community, with vari-
ous factions weighing in.
In Atlantic Beach, however, the mayor's race has been a
John Meserve, who has served previously as mayor
before taking a break, threw his hat back in the ring this
Nobody else followed suit.
Frankly, that is unconscionable that such a key post is
filled without challenge.
It should be noted that Meserve has been an advocate
for Atlantic Beach. He is well informed about the issues in
the city and he has definite opinions on the city, its oper-
ations and its future.
Without an opponent, though, there has been no
opportunity or obligation for Meserve to present those
views and let the ensuing public debate test their mettle.
In this year's contested races, candidates have offered
suggestions for cleaning up the west side of Mayport Road,
improving infrastructure, trimming costs and other issues
that have immediate relevance to residents.
Everyone is better served when elections follow public
debate that is engendered by contested races.
Uncontested races do not further community discus-
sion, a key element of democracy. Indeed, the lack of chal-
lengers in the mayor's race makes it more of an anoint-
ment than an election.
It takes a lot of personal sacrifice to seek public office
and those who have done so in Atlantic Beach are due
Too bad, though, that there are not more candidates to
receive kudos.
The public interest is served best when all races are con-
tested with qualified candidates committed to represent-
ing voters.

Letters to the editor:

Cruise ship will displace history

To tfe editor,
I seriously question
whether the definition of
"progress" includes displacing
a world famous fishing fleet
and three hundred house-
holds, more or less, that have
earned a living from harvest-
Shg t-he sea since Mayport was
settledd ind g. f the sake of
creating a new cruise terminal
and parking lot.

The historical damage
would be no less than severe
than placing the same termi
nal and parking lot in down
town.St. Augustine bay.
However, the residents of
St. Augustine are far mor
conscious of the historical sig
nificance of their city.

In America,

Have we lost winning touch?

To the editor,
It looks like several manu-
facturers will have "plug in"
electric automobiles on the
market in about two years.
Will we have enough electric-
ity to power them or will we
just try to scratch along?
Earlier this year, Governor
Crist and Governor
Schwarzenegger met to speak
about things like power gen-
eration and it wasn't long
before Florida had a "no new
coal fired power plant" policy
of costly kilowatts.
Governor Schwarzenegger
returned to California where,
in a recent heat wave, some
communities were blacked
out because of power short-
As these new "plug in" cars
come into greater and greater

use, the demand for power
will increase. And if our poli-
cy remains unchanged, one
night the electric cars will
come home from work, be
plugged in and the lights will
go out around town.
The Middle East rulers will
still be celebrating their claim
of military victory over the
United States and an energy
failure like this will add to
their joy.
They will have good cause
to celebrate the regular defeat
of efforts to stop the flow of
America's hard earned wealth
into their hands.
Have they spotted some-
thing? Have we lost our win-
ning touch?

Districting for Atlantic Beach

* Atlantic Beach voters will decide at the polls Oct. 2 whether to create districts for commissioners.


Mr. Meserve calls east of
Seminole Road the "traditional
districts" which produce can-
didates for Commissioners.
Two years ago some candi-
dates had, $60,000 in their
campaign accounts. My ques-
tion is, why would anyone
spend that kind of money to
be elected the Commission in
Atlantic Beach? He answered
this dilemma with "to focus
e on their own neighborhood."
e He claims "he walked the
- neighborhood," and was try-
- ing to find leaders in other
areas to become politically
f involved. He had no success.
e Mr. Meserve had my appli-



Two years ago Don Wolfson, ..
the outgoing mayor of Atlantic
Beach had the idea that the city
needed to have districts. So he
orchestrated a plan that would
involve a committee to recom-
mend action regarding districts
with a former mayor as chair- :
man who was seemingly biased .
in the same direction and would
lead the committee to the prom-..
ised land. Of course during the
deliberations one member
resigned in protest over how the
chairman appeared to be manip-
ulating the committee in favor of BILL GU
districts. Now as a result of the COLL
recommendation of the commit-
tee and the majority vote of the
commission, voters will decide if
Atlantic Beach needs their definition of districts
in the upcoming referendum. While nothing is
more American than a referendum, one has to
wonder why the outgoing mayor didn't decide
to have a referendum on the highly contentious
and divisive character ordinance that greatly
polarized our city last year, but I deviate.
First understand this is not really a vote on dis-
tricts, it is a vote to require residency. If we were
truly voting on districts, those being represented
would be able to vote for their representative.
The candidate has to live in the district but the
vote is citywide. Isn't that convoluted? Let,s put
it another way; if we have districts, a commis-
sioner can say, the people I represent can't elect
me. Or, if I am not representing my district well,
the people in my district can't vote me out.
As the issue evolved through committee meet-
ings and public hearings, it became apparent it
was a non-issue. Other than the incessant and
inflammatory letter writing by one malcontent
west of Mayport Road, there was pretty much
silence on the issue. I attending one public hear-
ing for input and eight or so citizens showed up.
Other public meetings had even more abysmal

Conclusion. Yet no one could
SJ really come up with a solid rea-
son as, -to why the present sys-
f 'tem was bad. The claim was that
the area west of Mayport Road
l, had been ignored. I was on the
commission for 12 years and I
never saw any area that asked
for help ever ignored. During
LLIFORD my tenure I sensed my fellow
MNIST commissioners always served
the' entire community, not just
their neighborhood. In fact I
saw times where we spent much
more money west of Mayport Road than all the
other neighborhoods combined. Does anyone
believe all those paved roads, utilities and
drainage just magically appeared one day?
If we have districts will that mean we will need
to account for money spent to make sure the
same amount is spent in each district? That's
silly because needs fluctuate from year to year.
And by the way, as populations shift and grow
requiring changes in district boundaries, who
will draw those new boundaries? Will this be a
function of the commission and create a "Let's
Make a Deal" environment? Finally, I sincerely
believe it will result in fewer good people elect-
But my greatest concern is instead of bringing
us together I believe it will be" divisive and after
the experiences of the last two years we don't
need any more division in this community.
The majority of cities our size do not have dis-
tricts and those few who do have true districts,
rot just residency requirements. "If it ain't broke
don't fix it", has a certain sensibility to it, does-
n't it?

A merica's premier School
of Journalism will soon

In 1908 the Ivy League col-

endowments to start such a
school on the argument that
journalism wasn't a serious
subject for college instruction.
Columbia University in New
York later relented but by that
time the University of
Missouri was way ahead of
them. Walter Williams, work-
ing with the Missouri Press
Association, has scooped them
and, out there in the middle
of nowhere, had established a
truly remarkable institution.
Today, this school is still pre-

field of journalism has fallen
on hard times.
At the time of my gradua-

respected course of 'study.

Journalism tells us what we

Journalism goes where its
audience cannot or will not.
It keeps daily watch on the
actions of government and
other powerful institutions of

wrongdoing arid injustice..
Journalism explains in every-

science and the arguments of
philosophy. It pulls together
and organizes obscure but
important facts to create use-

tells stories of heartbreak and
heroism, of triumph and dis-

Journalism is the glue of

Weldon: End the Iraq War

To the editor:
I served in the US Navy and
Navy Reserve for 20 years. I
believe in a strong and efficient
military. I care personally about
the brave soldiers, sailors, air-
men and marines who are serv-
ing our country honorably in
I am also firmly convinced
that we must end this senseless
war. Every day that passes sees
new American deaths that,
accomplish nothing. Every day
that passes sees many more Iraqi
deaths for which we are respon-
sible. Every day that passes sees
a deterioration of America's sta-
tus in the world and of our own
domestic security.
The Bush administration has
no plan for exiting Iraq. Each
new phase of the war is simply
another attempt to justify the
mistakes in judgment that took
us to Bagdad in 2003.
Removing the "surge" troops by
Summer of 2008 is not progress.
There will still be 130,000 troops
stationed in Iraq at that time,
just as there were in February
2007 when the "surge" began.
Al Queda in Pakistan is a real
threat. An entire generation of

jihadists bred by our occupation
of Iraq is a real threat. A collapse
in the readiness of America's
military forces due to the stress
of the Iraq war is a real threat.
Inadequate attention to home-
land security is a real threat. An
expanded war with Iran is a real
threat. Why can't we see the
real dangers that face us?
And,'honestly, aren't most of
us at home living comfortable
lives far removed from any suf-
fering caused by this war? Ask
yourselves: what sacrifices are
we as individuals really making
to support our fighting men and
women? How can we ever "win"
this war if America's military
families are left to carry the bur-
den alone?
Call your congressmen and
senators. Tell them that you
want this war to end. Join anti-
war groups. Participate in local
and national protests against
the war. Let the government
know that this cannot continue.
It's the least you can do for the
brave men and women in
harm's way.

Wal-Mart plans won't uproot trees for now

A median along Atlantic Boulevard
that has several full-grown Palm trees
will remain as is, for now.
Atlantic Beach Public Works Director
Rick Carper and officials from Neptune
Beach met with the Florida Department
of Transportation last week to discuss
alternative solutions to modifying a
median to accommodate a planned
Wal-Mart so that four of the Palm trees
would not have to be relocated.
The median is owned by FDOT, but
the city of Atlantic Beach is the mainte-
nance entity,

Four Medjool Palms were originally
supposed to be removed and relocated as
a result of a proposed extension of the
left turn lane to provide better access
into the shopping center. The proposal
received opposition from Atlantic Beach
But, FDOT has agreed, to a compro-
mise, Carper said.
The median will remain the same for
now and once Wal-Mart has been open
for approximately three months, FDOT
will require a traffic study and then
determine if modification is necessary,
according to Carper.
If a modification is necessary, FDOT
may consider closing the left bound

Professor offers free assistance for insurance appeals

While politicians debate
healthcare reform, a Flagler
College English professor is
helping individual patients nav-
igate the complicated language
of medical insurance to get the
coverage they need.
After facing his own prob-
lems with denied health claims,
Dr. Vincent Puma earned his
public health adjuster (PHA)
license from the State of Florida
this summer. The license allows
him to represent other patients
who want to dispute denied
medical insurance claims and
similar billing issues.
On a volunteer basis, Puma
has advised people on the com-
plicated contracts and proce-
dures involved in such disputes
for years. Many of them grew
frustrated and confused by the
appeals process and they
wound up paying thousands. of
dollars in medical expenses as a
Now, his new license will
allow him to go a step further:
researching, appealing and
negotiating for people who
don't have the time, expertise

or energy necessary.
"Largely, people cannot han-
dle this stuff on their own,"
Puma said. "I always thought,
'If only I could do it for them.'
I've been through this, and I
know how to do it."
Puma's medical coverage was
unexpectedly cut back several
years ago. His health insurance
company stopped covering his
ostomy supplies, which are used
after necessary abdominal sur-
gery that alters use of the intes-
tines, colon or bladder.
Common reasons for the sur-
gery include cancer, disease and
According to Puma, a year's
worth of ostomy supplies can
cost nearly $3,000. So, he
appealed the coverage change
and started lobbying the issue
to healthcare advocates, includ-
ing AARP and the United
Ostomy Associations of America
(UOAA), and Doug Wiles, his
state representative at the time.
Wiles was on the Florida
House of Representatives' insur-
ance committee. He discussed
the ostomy supplies issue with
Puma and worked on legislation

to require more comprehensive
medical insurance coverage.
"The insurance lobby is pretty
strong, and we ran into a lot of
opposition to changes that
would've introduced more ben-
efits," said Wiles, president of
the Herbie Wiles Insurance
agency. "If the average person is
denied health care benefits,
there are very few places they
can go."
Puma made hundreds of
phone calls, gathered evidence
and traveled to Orlando to
argue his case. Eventually,
mounting pressure led the

insurance company to offer
ostomy supply coverage as an
additional option for the plans.
The insurance company did not
have to inform potential pur-
chasers about the new option,
however employers had to
specifically ask for the coverage
in order to receive it.
The results weren't what
Puma had hoped for. He got the
coverage he needed, but the
larger problem was far from
"The pressure on all health-
care entities to do more with
less has made each of us vulner-

was impressed at his determina-
tion and his persistence. It is
not uncommon for someone to
voice a complaint, vow to do
something, but then fade away
when their personal problem is
fixed. Vince didn't fade, even
when his individual circum-
stances were righted."
To further his advising and
advocating, Puma studied con-
tract law, Florida insurance
statutes and more to earn his
PHA license. He said he wants to
keep making a difference where
he can: one person at a time.
"We need many more public
health adjusters and concerned
citizens just like him," Wiles
said. "Not only is he willing to
take on the major difficulty of
all these claims situations, but

Citizens Academy demystifiess' FBI


Allen is a

'super fan'

of Gators

Sreckon it used to be
assumed that women
don't like football.
For instance, one come-
dian said his wife showed
she'd had enough of his
watching games on TV.
She pointed to a player
and asked, "Who's that?"
He answered, "That's the
end." She said, "That's
right," and turned it off.
If there ever was such a
general condition, it's
apparently not totally
operative anymore.
In fact, based on a sur-
vey recently done of
National Football League
followers, there are lots
of females in football fan-
dom these days.
Jacksonville ranked
fairly high with 22 per-
cent of women identify-
ing themselves as NFL
However, I doubt that,
among them, there are
ver\r ma.ny_ ivho ae as
arid about the sport as
Faye Allen of the
(Up in the stands she's
known as Super Fan!)
Faye's pigskin passion
is the University of'
Florida team. She's been a
Gators gridiron groupie
with season tickets
almost; it seems, since
The Swamp (UF's football
stadium) was a big bog
with real alligators.
She's held a pair of
select seats there for her-
self and her daughter,
Cheryl, since 1991.
They're in the North
End Zone on the first
row, and thus, they can
enjoy the perks of
"Touchdown Terrace,"
including air condition-
ing, a sumptuous catered
buffet and TVs on which
to watch various other
Faye told me the menu
usually reflects the back-
ground of the visiting
team. She said, "When
we play South Carolina
(the Gamecocks), we
always have chicken.
When we play
Louisiana State
University, it's crawfish."
Another benefit she
gets is a parking place for
her RV. All this doesn't
come cheap, though.
The two season tickets
currently cost $1,200
each and Faye said the
tab is going to rise
sharply in the next cou-
ple of years.
Moreover, being the
enthusiastic Gator foot-
ball booster that she is,
she usually goes to away
games, which adds signif-
icantly to the overall cost
of her hobby.
Still, the expense is
clearly worth it to her.
Although she didn't
attend UF herself, there
are family connections.
Two cousins are UF grad-
uates. An uncle started
college and a football
career there but switched
to Auburn.
Said Faye, "He became
a number-one football
player at Auburn and
then got hurt and could-
n't go into the NFL." He
got burned at Auburn, so
maybe he should stayed
a Gator. Anyway, with
loyal fans like Faye, the
Gators may stay the win-
ners of the fray.

Linguist is another sought-

"If you have a language we
really need [such as Arabic or
Farsi], we are going to take a
look at you," said Westcott,
adding that 19 percent of all
special agents are women and
17 percent are minorities.
"Historically, we have hired
more accountants and lawyers.
But right now, the priority is
on a foreign language, prefer-
ably mid-eastern. People with
an intelligence background are

Westcott spent seven years
as a CPA in New York before
joining the bureau 16 years
ago. He has spent the majority
of his career investigating
white collar crime, and has
served stints in the violent

Joint Terrorism Task Force.
He also is an anomaly in
that he has spent all of his FBI
career in Jacksonville.
"It's unusual for an agent to
stay in one place," said
Westcott, who serves as the
official spokesperson for the
Jacksonville office.

Force pilot.
Special Agent Bill
Maddalena, a West Point grad-
uate, is a former LAPD' police
officer who joined the bureau
in 1992.
Merta spent five years as a
Marine Corps officer before
joining the FBI in 1985.
A Chicago native, he was a
sniper on the FBI's elite
Hostage Rescue Team and is
highlighted in the best-selling
book "Cold Zero" by former
FBI agent Chris Whitcomb.
Now the principal firearms
instructor and SWAT team
coordinator for the
Jacksonville office, Merta's tac-
tical callouts include the L.A.
riots, Waco, Ruby Ridge and
the manhunt for serial bomber
Eric Rudolph.
"The FBI has the largest
SWAT team in the world,"
Special Agent Jim Dougal told
Citizens Academy members
Friday, prior to a FBI SWAT

demonstration at Cecil Field's
gun range.
"We're maritime capable.
We do a lot of high-risk
Dougal is a former sniper
with the Hostage Rescue Team
and was handpicked by Merta
to run Jacksonville's 15-mem-
ber FBI SWAT team.
Folmar, who has been in
charge of the Jacksonville field
office for the past 18 months,
spent three tours of duty at FBI
headquarters. His top assis-
tants, Nestor Duarte and John
Girgenti, head up the
Jacksonville office's criminal
and national security branch-

Focus has shifted
Duarte, a Miami native,
spent several years working
counterdrug operations in
Miami and El Paso, Texas. No
one was happier than Duarte
this month when one of the
FBI's 10 Most Wanted, drug
kingpin Diego Montoya,. was
arrested in Columbia.
"He was a 100 times worse
than Pablo Escobar," said
Duarte, a former FBI drug
squad supervisor on the
Mexican border.
As the head of the criminal
section, Duarte oversees agents
specializing in white collar,
civil rights and cyber crimes,
among others.
"In the white collar arena,
it's not a who done it. We have
to prove intent," said Special
Agent Rick Dent, a 19-year vet-
eran of the Jacksonville office.
"For that, we need record-'
And that's where the FBI's
special surveillance group
comes in.
The unit's team leader, a vet-
eran special agent who did not
divulge his real name, told
members of the Citizens
Academy: "I can do everything
that OnStar can do and a
whole lot more. There's a very
small handful of us [in the FBI]
who have been trained to do
what we do."
The special surveillance unit
comes under the heading of
the National Security Branch,
headed up by Girgenti, a for-
mer counterintelligence agent
in the Northeast.
"A big part of our field office
is counterterrorism," Girgenti,
an 18-year FBI agent, said.
"Since 9/11, we've had to
reprioritize. Our No. 2 priority
is counterintelligence."
Established in September
2005, the FBI's National
Security Branch investigates
individuals, organizations and
businesses associated with
countries on a designated
"country threat" list.
One three-hour session of
the Citizens Academy was
devoted to the overhauled
counterterrroism operations of
the FBI in response to the ter-
rorist attacks of 9/11.
"It's an issue that will face us
for the foreseeable future,"
Special Agent Mike Perkins,
the chief counsel of the
Jacksonville office, told the
class on Sept. 4.
"We have to balance the
concepts of privacy and securi-
ty. This is something our
founding fathers knew. We
have to do a better job of edu-
cating the American people
[about counterterrorism]."
Perkins, a 25-year FBI veter-
an, was, hands-down, the most
impassioned speaker during
the six-week class.
He said the reason the FBI
and other U.S. intelligence
agencies failed to stop the 9/11

attacks was, in part, because of
"the National Security laws on
the books" at that time.
Since 9/11, the Patriot Act
and the Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Act (FISA) have
bolstered the bureau's reach in
counterterrorism matters.
"The Patriot Act has influ-
enced our ability to do things,"
Girgenti said.
Special Agent Gary Loeffert,
who supervises the counterter-
rorism unit in Jacksonville,
said eight special agents per-
form weekly "threat assess-
ments on what's happening in
"The ports are a major vul-
nerability for us," Loeffert
"Jacksonville's Joint
Terrorism Task Force (JTTF)
serves as a repository for all ter-
rorism threat information.
They meet every week."

Collateral duties
Like most FBI special agents,
Alex Silverstein has several col-
lateral duties.
His primary one is supervis-
ing the foreign counterintelli-
gence unit, but he also heads
up the field office's evidence
response team [ERT].
"There are no friendly intel
agencies," Silverstein quipped.
"We're spy hunters, essen-
tially. Everything I do is classi-
ERT is the unclassified por-
tion of his job.
Silverstein heads an eight-
member team trained to col-
lect evidence supporting prior-
ity investigations.
The ERT unit specializes in
crime scene management,
search techniques and forensic
anthropology, or the detection
and recovery of human
"SWAT makes entries, ERT
makes cases," Silverstein said.
"The photographer is the
single-most important posi-
tion on our team."
Silverstein, a paramedic,
was stationed in Virginia when
terrorists flew a jetliner into
the Pentagon on 9/11.
He arrived on the scene 10
minutes after the plane hit and
spent the next two and half
weeks working on the recovery
"Parts of the plane were
thrown so far they landed in
Arlington National Cemetery,"
Silverstein recalled.
"I found a wedding ring [in
the rubble]."

FBI initiative in Iraq
A presentation on the FBI's
initiative in Iraq and a seg-
ment on organized crime
capped the fifth session, of the
Citizens Academy, held Sept.
18 at the FBI's field office near
Arlington Expressway.
Special Agent Denis Maduro,
who has worked for the bureau
for almost 28 years, discussed a
landmark Mafia case: The
Patriarca La Cosa Nostra
Induction Ceremony, which
the FBI caught on tape in
October 1989.
The incident led to the arrest
and indictment of 21 members
of a major New England crime
family, Maduro said.
The FBI recorded the entire
induction ceremony via a
"roving Title III" wire tap and
also photographed Mafia
members arriving and depart-
ing the secret ceremony.
Special Agent Chris Bonner,
who works out of the FBI's
satellite office in Daytona
Beach, has served two tours of
duty in Iraqi.
In 2003, Bonner helped

instruct Iraqi police -in coun-
terterrorism tactics. In 2005,
he was part of the Regime
Crimes Liaison Office in
Baghdad that assisted the Iraqi
government in the trial of for-
mer president Saddam
"The FBI has been embedded
in Iraq since March 2003,"
Bonner, who has been with the
FBI for 25 years, said.
"We have about 60 FBI per-
sonnel in Iraq, most are sta-
tioned in the Green Zone or
the American embassy."
Bonner said the FBI has
eight "major missions in
Iraqi." Among them are inves-
tigating the abductions of U.S.
citizens, and citizens of coali-
tion partners; providing sup-
port to military explosive tech-
nicians investigating the use of
improvised explosive devices
(IEDs), and addressing threats
to U.S. national security ema-
nating from or pertaining to
Bonner said the bureau
assisted in the recovery of
Christian Science Monitor
reporter Jill Carroll.
He said not all IED attacks
are triggered by terrorists.
Some are. criminal acts that the
FBI investigates. Bonner's son,
Mike, a corporal in the Marine
Corps, has served one tour of
duty in Iraqi and is set to be
redeployed next month.

Agents armed 24/7
Bonner was one of several
special agents in attendance
Friday as the FBI's Citizens
Academy wrapped its six-week
class with'a hands-on firearms
training session.
Participants shot every
weapon in the FBI arsenal
except for the shotgun and
sniper rifle. The highlight for
most was firing a vintage
Thompson submachine gun
made famous during the
Prohibition era.
The so-called "Tommy Gun"
fired 10 rounds per second and
was hard to handle on full
Citizens Academy graduates
also fired a MP5 machine gun,
a M-4 rifle, a .38-caliber
revolver and a .40-caliber,
semiautomatic Glock hand-
"FBI agents are expected to
be armed 24 hours a day," said
Merta, who was proficient
with the .308-caliber sniper
rifle as a member of the
Hostage Rescue Team.
"We're always going to stack
the deck in our favor."
The first FBI Citizens
Academy originated in
Phoenix in 1993. The
Jacksonville field office held its
inaugural Citizens Academy in
In 2005, the National
Citizens Academy Alumni
Association was formed to rec-
ognize more than 5,000 gradu-
ates of the FBI course.
"Our goals in hosting it are
to foster a greater understand-
ing of the FBI's role in the
community, enhance lines of
communication, and increase
interaction between the FBI
and those we serve," Folmar
said in a letter to invitees of
the 2007 Jacksonville class.
"I sincerely hope you will
take advantage of this unique
opportunity, and help us keep
our commitment to create new
partnerships, strengthen exist-
ing bonds, and work closely
with leaders in Northeast
Florida who share our vision
for safer communities."

In the last school year before
the opening of a high school for
Ponte Vedra teens, Nease High
had one of the largest increases
in population among St. Johns
County district schools.
Nease High School's student
population increased 11.4 per-
cent over last year's, according
to the 20-day attendance count.
Two other schools attended
by Ponte Vedra children were
among the fastest-growing in
the School District.
Only Timberlin Creek
Elementary School in the
Northwest, with a 14.6 percent
increase in student population,
grew faster than Nease, which is
attended by most Ponte Vedra
The number of students
attending St. Johns County dis-
trict schools by the. 20-day
attendance count was 27,514,
an increase of 1,040 students
over the same time last year.
The latest attendance figure
represents a 4 percent increase
over last year's enrollment of
26,474. This total keeps St.
Johns County among the
fastest growing school districts
in the state.
Considering the school dis-
trict as a whole, middle schools
had the largest growth again
this year, with 5.8 percent more
students. High school enroll-
ment increased by 3.3 percent,

followed by elementary schools
at 3.1 percent.
Schools with the largest
increases, in addition to
Timberlin Creek and Nease, are
St. Johns Technical High School
(8.2 percent), Crookshank
Elementary (6.0 percent) and
Landrum Middle School and
Ocean Palms Elementary
School (both with 5.6.percent).
"This substantial increase in
student population is similar to
what the district experienced
last year," schools
Superintendent Joseph Joyner
said in a news release.
"In anticipation of continued
growth, we are building two
additional high schools and a
new K-8 school in the northern
part of the county, which con-
tinues to be our primary growth
"We are also continually
revising our future building

The Navy announces its intent to revise the previously released Draft
OEIS/EIS assessing potential environmental impacts of establishing an
undersea warfare training range (USWTR) off the eastern coast of the
United States for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training. Based on
comments received from federal agencies, state agencies, and members
of the public, the Navy determined that a new draft OEIS/EIS should
be prepared, incorporating suggestions received during the public
review and comment period. The changes contemplated involve
addition of an alternative and modification of the methodology used to
analyze behavioral impacts on marine mammals.
Recognizing the continued importance of public input, the Navy is also
reopening the scoping process and invites you to submit any comments
relevant to the scope of issues to be addressed in the revised DOEIS/
EIS. Scoping comments previously submitted following publication of
the 1996 NOI are still valid and will be considered. All comments
received during the October 2005 DOEIS/EIS public review and
comment period will also be considered during.this scoping process
and should not be resubmitted. Please submit any new comments by
October 22, 2007, to ensure consideration.

Sandi's dad, Jimmy Chandler, a business
traveler, told her she needed to move to
Jacksonville for a fresh start, where every
neighborhood had a small-town feel, where
she'd be close to the beach, and she'd find
warm, friendly people. Sandi and Cassidee
headed for Jacksonville, where they first land-
ed in the Baymeadows area on September 9,
2005. The students, parents, neighbors and
teachers at Wolfson took Cassidee under their
wings and provided school clothes, supplies,
and even lunch money for her senior year of

about the hurricane and featured it in a full-

We can only imagine what George W Jenkins may have said if he had lived to see his 100th birthday

this Saturday, September 29, 2007. But we don't have to imagine what he believed. Every day we can

witness his philosophy, his ideals, and his legacy in action at Publix, the company he founded in 1930.

-----............. p COUNDED ON PRINCIPLES ............--...............

It's only natural that Publix 'grew, because Mr. Georges values were nurturing ones, including

respwcig people and service to others. Whether customers or associates, it was people that George

Jenkins cherished. Even today Publix associates learn from Mr. George though they may never have

had a chance to meet him. Because whenever an associate serves a customer-breaks a package, offers

a taste, carries oit groceries to a car, demonstrates a recipe ... it's a reflection of Mr. George. And

whenever a store serves its community-co-sponsors a school supply drive, donates to a food bank,

supports a local charity... it's a reflection of Mr. George.

..................O ................. FO RW A R D W IT H C H A RAC T E R ...............

Every day Publix strives to uphold the lessons George Jenkins taught us by his words and deeds. And

while we grow and adapt, finding innovative ways to make our customers' and associates' lives easier,

the guiding principles that form the character of Publix will never change. It's why our customers enjoy

a better shopping experience. We know that's just what Mr. George wanted.

After shaky start, Panthers roll to victory


Ted Stachitas' first pass
against Miami Bay Point might
have looked to Nease fans like
an extension of the quarter-
back's fourth quarter perform-
ance against Madison County a
week earlier. Fortunately for
those fans, the end result was
not the same.
The Panthers put 41 points
on the scoreboard in the first
half on their way to a 48-34 vic
tory over the Falcons.
It wasn't the prettiest start for
the Panthers this season.
Stachitas threw an interception

another on the team's second

Rain, rough sea keep anglers inside the jetties

Rain and rough seas kept
anglers inside the jetties
most of last week. Over
the weekend, however, both
the "Mayport Princess" and
the "King Neptune" made it
out and reported good action.
Northeasters make for
excellent fishing at the
Guana Dam and last week
was no exception.
Another big king was
caught off the Jacksonville
Beach Pier and many anglers
were able to catch their one
red bass.

brought things to life last

Jaguars grind out a tough win in Denver

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker John Carney (1) boots a field goal against the Atlanta Falcons during
a game at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium Sept. 16. Carney, who was signed after an injury to
starting placekicker Josh-Scobee, is 5-for-5 on field goaljtries.and has converted all three extra
points he's attempted in two games this season.

T he on-again, off-again
Jaguars were on again
Sunday out in Denver,
but what will they be in two
weeks at Kansas City?
More to the point, which
team will show up Oct. 14
when those mean old
Houston Texans come to
Weaver Village for a home-
The Jaguars showed Sunday
they can play this game. Not
good enough to defeat the
Tennessee Titans, of course,
but good enough to beat nor-
mal teams (if there's anything
normal about an NFL bunch)
and do it in a surprising way,
23-14 wow!
How did Jacksonville do it,
people are still asking from
here to yonder. Some Denver
fans are still in shock and tak-
ing treatments in the emer-
gency room.
Experts none of whom
picked Jacksonville to win in
the Sunday periodicals say
the Jaguars did it by control-
ling the game and keeping the
Denver offense off the field.
How unique.
Fans here might ask why
they didn't think of that
before. Isn't that course taught
in summer school, where the
students of coach Jack Del Rio
have the best of instruction?
Other say that the key to
victory was the coming out
party staged by David Garrard,
who is now grudgingly admit-
ted to be'a pretty fair quarter-
back. Not in the class with
Byron Leftwich, of course, but
not bad.
Some, this scribe among
them, like Garrard three years
ago when he was being
ignored like a bowlegged gal
at the school dance.
They say that Garrard has
matured. Lord knows he's had
enough time on the shelf to
do it. He and Quinn Gray sat
on the bench so long they had
to pruned for growing ivy.
Gray is now the heir apparent
to the throne if and when
Garrard moves on. We hope is
isn't for years.
King David was good for
154 yards, 14 9f 20 tries, and
two TDs one rushing, one
passing. Speaking of rushing,
Garrard ran 11 times for 52
yards. He didn't catch any
passes, but then again you
can't have it all.

-' V



The best thing was to
Fred Taylor back in fore
going 17 times for 84 ii
tant yards. He didn't sc
but old Fred kept the D
defense rattled. Taylor i

Give a cheer for John
Carney, who booted thr
field goals. Old John's r
