The School Board will Facility plan
begin a year-long process for Seagate
in the calendar year 2008 schools to
to re-examine district be drafted
boundaries, according to See story A-3
School Board
Representative Nancy Broner said at a meeting
Thursday at Fletcher High School that a "mas-
sive" re-drawing of all school district lines is
inevitable due to a shift in demographics and
"This is a very controversial issue," she told
attendants of a Town Meeting.
Broner said that with the addition of new
schools and different populations, boundaries
for the entire district need to be examined.
School boundaries determine which schools
students attend, based on residency.
For example, plans are already underway for
a new high school near 9A and Southside,
which is anticipated to open in 2010, she said.
Although the board studies boundaries annu-
ally, this process will take place over a year, and
it will involve community task forces, she said.
"When you change one boundary, it's a
domino effect," she said. "We'll have to look
at everything the Beaches as well."
Asked afterward if the Beaches might be
impacted, she said that nothing is clear at the
moment, but everything is being considered.
Asked about whether students on the barrier
island would all continue to attend Fletcher
High School, Broner said that makes sense for
many reasons.

Peyton says he favors cruise ship for Mayport

Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton
told citizens at a Town Meeting
Thursday that he supports the idea of
a cruise terminal in Mayport Fishing
Although proposed plans are still in
preliminary phases, the Jacksonville
Port Authority has said it is consider-
ing a cruise terminal for the Village.

Peyton said that he is excited about
the idea and thinks it is "brilliant" of
Rick Ferrin; Executive Director of
Jaxport; to consider it.
Peyton said it will help restaurants
and hotels in the area.
"Quite frankly, I think it comple-
ments the Village," he said. "I think its
a win-win...I don't see any major road-
Atlantic Beach Commissioner Mike

Bomo told Peyton that some citizens
are concerned that the Village would
lose its fishing lifestyle.
"I think there's a balance that can
be struck," Peyton responded.
However, some concerned citizens
were planning a meeting last night to
discuss the terminal, according to res-
ident Cynthia Millar, who said.she is
adamantly against the idea of a
cruise terminal in the fishing village.

The rain meant good
fishing for some. Find

Average home sale price up in some areas of Beaches

Homes still staying
on the market
longer than they
were aye.a ago -
Homes sold at the Beaches this year
were on the market longer than a year
ago and average sales prices dropped in
all but a few areas of the community.
According to statistics compiled by
the Northeast Florida Association of
Realtors, the first three quarters of the
year showed home sales in the Beaches
area reflecting a nationwide slowdown.
Average home sale prices rose only in

southeast Jacksonville Beach (up 25
percent); west Neptune Beach (up 20
percent); Ponte Vedra Beach east of
A1A and north of Corona (up 13.6 per-
ceht); Ponte Vedra Beach west of A1A
and south of Corona (up 7.5 percent);
and Ponte Vedra Beach south bf Ponte
Vedra Boulevard including Vilano
Beach (up 11 percent).
The numbers do not tell the whole
story about the Beaches real estate mar-
ket, according to agents.
"The Beaches are unique. The num-
bers are down but we have great inven-
tory and buyers are getting great
value," said Phyllis Staines, broker
associate at ReMax Coastal. She noted
that there are some homes available
here below $300,000 and two years ago,
that was not possible.
"I don't see doom anfd gloom. We

were spoiled for a couple of years (stick
a sign in the yard and it sells). What we
have now is normal and we're not used
to normal," Staines said, explaining
that the Beaches is still a desirable area
unlike any other area of Jacksonville.
"Real estate is local," Staines said,
explaining that real estate trends seen
nationwide and even in Jacksonville
are not necessarily reflected at the
Beaches. "The Beaches is a: great place
to live."
Nationwide, major home builders
are discounting prices to clear new
home inventory and that is impacting
prices on resales, according to Business
But the Beaches are not feeling that
impact, Staines, said, largely because
there is little new residential construc-
tion except for rebuilds or some con-

According to NEFAR, the condo mar-
ket has slowed, with only one sector
showing an increase in the number of
condos sold the southeast quadrant
of Jac ksonville Beach. There 52 condos
sold.between .an: I rnd Sept. 30 20i "---
as compared to 36 sold during the
same 2006. The average price
dropped slightly, but a few other sec-
tors of the condo market showed an
increase in average sale price. (See
details at www.
Real estate market reports prepared
by show that it is still
a buyer's market in each of the Beaches
communities. A notation on housing
hot spots in Ponte Vedra states that
prices have "corrected to a more afford-
able price" and the drop in interest
rates makes it a "great time to buy."

Pusser's operates facilities

The name is "a corruption
of the word 'purser,' the
British Royal Navy officer
who doled out the daily
ration of rum to the ship's
mates."Rogalski said the
restaurant is expected to
open in Ponte Vedra Beach
in late October or early

Jacksonville Beach 2010 Comprehensive Plan

The Jacksonville Beach Planning and Development
Department, together with its consultants Reynolds, Smith and
Hills, Inc., has prepared a"proposed update to the Transportation
element of the adopted Jacksonville Beach 2010 Comprehensive
Plan. This element represents a State-mandated update to the
City's existing Transportation element, which was last updated
in 1999. This update reflects changes in both state and local
transportation policies, and examines what transportation
improvements may be needed in order to maintain adopted
levels of service on our roadways. The element also analyzes
existing and projected traffic conditions, new and anticipated
development, bike and pedestrian circulation, mass transit, and
planned or needed transportation capital improvement projects.

You are invited to attend this informational meeting on
Wednesday, October 17, 2007 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, and
learn more about the proposed Transportation element and
provide comments. The meeting will be held in the City
Council Chamber of City Hall, 11 N. 3rd St. There will be a
formal presentation by the city's consultants, followed by time
for questions and comments. A copy of the proposed element
is available for public inspection at the offices of-the Planning
and Development Department, 11 North 3rd Street,
Jacksonville Beach, FL, during normal business hours.


In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and
Section 286.26, Florida Statutes, peYsors, with disabilities
needing special accommodation to parth.pate in the meeting
should contact the Planning and Development Department
no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday prior to the meeting date.

To the editor:
In the face of continued
attacks against my supporters,
volunteers and me, I feel it is
now more important than ever
to turn the other cheek and
attempt to reach out to my
opponent's supporters. Within
the next 30 days, I plan to host a
town hall'style meeting to reiter-
ate and clarify my position on
important issues, and to address
questions and concerns of those
who were not inclined to sup-

port my candidacy. Bringing
both sides together will allow us
to discuss issues that concern all
of us, and to find solutions on
how we can all work together for
what is right for Atlantic Beach.
It is my goal to be a positive
influence on our community. I
look forward to representing the
citizens of Atlantic Beach in the
best light possible.

To the editor:
As a resident and homeowner
in West Atlantic Beach for the
last 6 years, I believe whole-
heartedly that we must all find a
time in our day to vote at the
local polls for our city elections.
We have had no representation
in our neighborhood and .final-
ly that is being recognized.
West Atlantic Beach is a great
neighborhood but way to many

of us cry without resolve. You
can not complain unless you
plan to do something about it.
Please make, your presence
known by voting on October
16th. The stronger our numbers
are in our neighborhood the
more we will get seen by the
east side of. Mayport Road., See
you at the polls.

Isle of Palms kids should go to FHS

To the editor:
I live in zip code 32250 and I
am sick and tired of the people
who live in Jacksonville Beach,
Neptune Beach and Atlantic
Beach saying that Fletcher High
School is so desirable that peo-
ple are lying about their
addresses to get their kids to
attend there--It-has very little to,
do with the school being the,
best High School in the district*
and a lot more to do with the
fact that kids that live in zip
code 32250 are considered
Beaches school students and are
forced to attend Beaches schools
all the way up to 8th grade
although there are plenty of
schools on the other side of the
Intracoastal:( probably better
schools: Alimacani, Chet Creek.
Keman). So, instead of. taking
our kids four blocks away to
those schools, we must ship
them over the intracoastal to
Seabreeze. They then must
attend Fletcher Middle School,
another great school where the
kids play sports and start to
form roots with the kids and the
school. These kids are attached
by now to their friends and they
consider themselves a part of
the upcoming Fletcher fighting
Senators. It becomes their iden-
tity and they want to remain

they are comfortable with and

I am a proud 1979 graduate of:
FHS. I have lived in the area 42
of th,45 years of my life. FHS is
truly my school. Some of the

teachers that taught me are still
there, teaching my kids.
When I bought my home in
Isle of Palms, (32250), part of
the reason I bought a home
there was because my children'
would attend Seabreeze,
Fletcher Middle School and
Fletcher High School. There was
a school 'bus that- picked -our'
kids up and Fletcher high
school was our assigned school.
Then, without a vote and kind
of behind our back they took
the school from us. We were
told not to worry, there would
be plenty of special considera-
tion for. our area and allowing
our children to attend Fletcher
High School would never be a
That was the case until last
year. Then all of the sudden we
were pushed out. No more spe-
cial consideration, no more
going through the school for
special assignments. We had to
start being creative. So we, in
the httle area known as Isle of
Palms, zip code 32250, need to
band together and get legal
counsel and take back what was
taken from us. We want our
kids to attend the school they
were designated to go to in the
first place. We want Nancy
Broner, who we voted for too, to
come to our aid and fix this
problem. But most of all we
want people to be tolerant of
the problem and find a solution
we are all happy with. We want
you to stop threatening to kick
our kids out of a school they
have every right to attend.

To the editor.
This letter is in response to Mr.
John) Weldon's [letter] stating
that we should end the "senseless
war" in Iraq. Mr. Weldon claims
that we must pull out of Iraq now

dying for"nothing."
I was unaware that our nation
engages in conflicts with a cear
timeline of when the war will be
over. Americans are winners. Our
soldiers have inculcated a do not

less than victory. There is no sec-

have been in Iraq for four years. In

I firmly believe that the Mayor
and three Council members elect-
ed at-large and three other
Council members elected by dis-
trict is. the best form of govern-
ment in the Beaches Community.
It allows for the voters to change
43% of the Council or 57% of the
Council every two years, if they
so desire.

As for saving $50,000.00 by
reducing the Council by two
members is ridiculous. You know
better, David. Each Council
member. receives $10,080 per
year. That stipend hasn't changed
in probably ten tears. When I got
elected to Council, I thought that
I would only be required to
attend the 22 Council meetings
per year. Did I get a surprise!
In addition to the 22 Council
meetings, the City Manager is
also available to each Council
member on an individual basis if
that Council member has' ques-
tions on any subject. In addition,
each Council member is expected
to participate in the opening of
the Beaches Parade, the 4th of
July ceremonies, the Mothers Day
concert, the movies, the Police
ceremony that honors fallen offi-
cers in the State of Florida, Budget
meetings, numbers of ground-
breaking ceremonies, ribbon cut-
ting ceremonies and countless'
others. They also have to answer
mail, E-mail and phone calls from
their constituents. If a person
were required to spend all that
time in corporate employment, I
doubt that anyone would do it
for that stipend.
Those who want to participate
in the health insurance program,
which is offered to all city
employees may do so. Most of the
time not all members of Council
do participate, having elected to
stay in their current program.
Neither the Mayor or members of
Council can participate in the
employee retirement program.

Internet news note from
"National Public Radio
recently broadcast a fasci-
nating week-long series of
conversations titled
'Adoption in America.'"
Here's my local supple-
It's been almost 51 years
since that magical day
when we were riding.east
on-Beach Boulevard with a
precious cargo: our infant
son, who we had just met
at a Jacksonville adoption
It was the beginning of a
grand adventure which is
still going on family
life, almost from scratch.
At that point; my late
wife and I were about as
ready for exploring parent-
hood as for touring Mars. I
mean, back then, I might
have assumed a bassinet
was a musical instrument.
We had learned that we'd
never birth children, so we
applied for adoption.
After a waiting period
and a home inspection,
for which we more or less
refurbished our house to
get ready, we were told to
come get little Eric.
The first few weeks of
inexperienced parenthood
were pretty harrowing.
There was a lot of unfamil-
iar stuff to do. Not surpris-
ingly, my spouse was
much better at such func-
tions than clumsy I was,
which was good, since
babies are subject to
change without notice;
i.e., of diapers, specifically.
Unfortunately, our over-
active imaginations went
wild, and the baby's every
action or "symptom" was
cause for worry.
However, with the aid
and advice of relatives,
friends, pediatricians, and,
of course; Dr. Spock's book
on infant and child care,
we all survived. We were a
But something, or,.
rather, someone was miss-
ing. Eric needed a sister,
We joyfully received
infant Mary at the adop-
tion agency about three
years after Eric's arrival.
Then someone gave us
another book that became
just as useful as Dr.
Spock's, but in a different
way. It was' a children's
story (ages 3-10) called
"The Chosen Baby," writ-
ten by Valentina P. Wasson
and first published in
As stated by the publish-
er, it's the story of adop-
tion and has become a
classic in the child adop-
tion field. Because we had
decided to tell our chil-
dren about their adoption
as soon as they could
understand, the book
became a perfect means of
doing so.
In fact, the experience
of, the fictional Brown
family (adoption of a boy
first and then a girl) mir-
rored ours.
After I read it to the
kids, first Eric and then
Mary, they constantly
asked me to reread it to
them. They became proud
of being adopted; i.e., a
"chosen baby," and still
I recommend the adop-
tion option.

Blessings to animals,

real and otherwise


The weather cooperated
Sunday morning in Ponte
Vedra Beach, where birds, dogs
and other assorted pets were
escorted, one by one, to be
blessed by one of the clergy at
Christ Episcopal Church.
After days of rain and scat-
tered showers, and under a sky
showing a brief rainbow and
an ominous dark, drifting
cloud, the animals and their
owners children and adults
alike gathered for the annu-
al St. Francis Day celebration,
the Blessing of the Animals.
The service was conducted
to such tunes as "Fly Like a
Butterfly," "This Little Light of
Mine" and "Kum ba Yah."
Five-year-old Ashlan Tresca
carried her stuffed cat, Cotton
Candy, to be blessed by the'

Christ Church rector, the Rev.
Rick Westbury, who also
blessed Evan Novak's stuffed
dog, Pluto.
Squeaky, a green cheek
conure, was blessed while sit-
ting'on owner Candace Kelly's
shoulder. Pam and Templeton
Fitch brought two Labradors
they had obtained from Lab
Rescue, Buddy and Sammy, to
the ceremony. The Labs were
blessed by the Rev. Deacon Jo
In addition to Westbury and
Hoskins, two other clergy
assisted in the blessing: the
Rev. Bill Baxter and a recent
arrival, the Rev. Ann Broomell.
Because of ongoing con-
struction of the church's parish
hall and with concern about
the weather, the ceremony was
held under two tents set up on
a parking lot behind the

Jacksonville Beach firefighter Dale Brooks prepares stuffed chicken at Fire Station 1.

Brooks serves 'fully involved

food' at Jax Beach firehouse

Jacksonville Beach firefight-
er Dale Brooks is hoping to be
among those who will have a
chance to demonstrate their
cooking skills on the upcom-
ing season of "The Next Food
Network Star."

Brooks, who often cooks for
his fellow firefighters at Fire
Station 1 at 325 2nd Ave. S., is
currently finishing his three-
minute video application for
the cable cooking show com-
petition, now in its fourth sea-
son on "The Food Network."
On the basis of the applica-
tions, 30 semifinalists will be
selected to go to New York to
prepare their original recipes.
Ten of-the semifinalists will
then be chosen to compete on
"The Food Network" in shows
telecast next year. The winner
of the final competition will
have their own "Food
Network" show.
Brooks is using a firefighting
term for the title of his pro-
posed show: "Fully Involved
A fully involved structure
fire is one that produces a
high volume of heat.
But to Brooks, "fully
involved" food is appealing in
appearance, taste, and satisfac-
Brooks is a self-taught chef
and a student of the culinary
arts. His first cooking experi-
ence was inspired by a televi-
sion cooking show.
During the show, the chef
made scrambled eggs. Brooks,
who was 7 years old at the
time, immediately went into
the kitchen while his parents
were busy in another part of
the house and duplicated
what the chef had done.
"I was amazed that I could
do this," he said.
A U.S. Navy veteran, Brooks
has been with the JBFD for
five years. He and his wife,
Danita, live west of the
Intracoastal and have two
children, ages 7 and 4, and
another on the way.

When Brooks joined the
JBFD, one of his first assign-
ments as a rookie was to cook
At the fire station, every-
body takes a turn either
preparing a meal or bringing
in a meal from outside, he
said. Depending on their
schedules, the designated
cook might work alone or
other firefighters might help
with clean-up or prep work.
Jacksonville Beach firefight-
ers work on a 24-hour sched-
Sule beginning at 8 a.m. When
they are not responding to a
call,'routine duties at the fire
station include checking the
trucks and equipment, filing
reports, training, meetings,
Sand business inspections.
Generally after 5 p.m. the
firefighters have dinner
together which gives them a
chance to catch up with each
other and relax. Everyone
looks forward to a good meal
and the firefighters are not
shy about letting the cook
know what they like and
don,t like, said Brooks.
Occasionally there are
friendly cooking competitions
at the fire station. The "pantry
challenge" is held periodically
to determine who can make
the best use of whatever has
accumulated in the kitchen.
There are also personal chal-
lenges between firefighters
like the one Brodks won that
was a contest between his pigs
in the blanket and another
firefighter's Chicken Marsala.
Brooks recently served one

of his chicken dishes for "The
Food Network" competition at
the fire station. His recipe, he
said, came from thinking
about what ingredients would
combine well for new way to
make boneless chicken
Brooks rolled Polish ham,
apple slices and golden raisins
(plumper and more flavorful
than other raisins, he said),
and brown sugar in chicken
breasts that had been'pound-
ed thin. The chicken rolls are
covered with slices of bacon
before browning in a skillet
and then baking in a hot
Brooks cooked his own
recipe for Whiskey Barbecue
Sauce at home to serve with
the chicken. The sauce is sim-
mered until thickened and the
alcohol has evaporated.
To go with the chicken, he
also prepared prepared Loaded
Mashed Potatoes and breaded
and fried squash and zucchini.
To make his Loaded Mashed
Potatoes, Yukon Gold and rus-
set potatoes are cooked until
tender and then mashed with
warmed heavy cream and but-
ter. Sharp Vermont cheddar
and Colby cheeses and cooked
bacon are folded into the
potatoes to finish the dish.
Brooks also does most of the
meals at home and enjoys
cooking with his children.
Family cooking nights are
called "Meatball Nights"
because the children always
want to make meatballs first
and then try other dishes, he
Pan Seared Green Beans are
one of.Danita Brooks' favorite
dishes made by her husband.
After marinating the beans, he
sears them until they are ten-
der and begin to caramelize.

The following are recipes from

S sometimes there is a best-
selling book or something
on television that cap-
tures everybody's imagination.
Ken Burns' production, The
War, a seven-part series now
showing on PBS, has everyone
talking. The man has an
admirable track record. He has
given us his unforgettable
series, The Civil War, and
memorable histories of jazz
and baseball. In each, his pas-
sion for his subjects is clear.
World War II is the war that
we all identify with. Some
actually fought, some have
parents who participated or
friends or relatives who were
there. Some came back. Many
did not. Sixteen million
served in uniform and
400,000 lost their lives. There
was not one battlefield. Battles
were fought in locales that
ranged from tropical islands
to snow-covered battlegrounds.
in Europe. The war went on
for years.
Burns was determined to
capture the very personal sto-
ries of those Americans who
lived through the last good
war, as some call it. He con-
trasted brutal and,bloody bat-
tles and the experiences of the
soldiers who fought them to
the more regular lives of those
back home. Four towns are
featured Mobile, Ala.,
Sacramento, Calif., Waterbury,
Conn., and'Luverne, Minn.
The more than 14-hour series
introduces us to 40 men and
women who tell us in inti-
mate, emotional detail about
Sthe war they experienced.
It is an impossible story to
tell. It is, actually, millions of
stories and each poignant.
Many tried to tell the stories.


The overwhelming feeling
that he had failed to relate
what really happened haunted
Eric Sevareid, a CBS corre-
spondent, who reported on
the war for four years.
His words capture the frus-
tration of many who have
tried to express that war's
human drama and tragedy:
"Only the soldier really lives
the war. The journalist does
not war happens inside a
man and that is why, in a
certain sense, you and your
sons from the war will be for-
ever strangers. If, by the mira-
cles of art.and genius, in later
years two or three among
them can open their hearts
and the right words come,
then perhaps we shall all
know a little of what it was
like and we shall know
then that all the present
speakers and writers hardly
touched the story."
Burns answered Severied's
challenge and labored for six
Years to create his documen-
tary about the Second World
War. The stories are told by
those who bore witness to the
killing and dying. At the same

tiime, those bk, home relate
their stories. They were fight-
ing too, in their own way.
They were fighting to main-
tain their lives and ensure
that all would be well when
their soldiers came home.
Many of those who had
family that fought in that war
never heard the intimate
details. Many warriors don't
want to talk. We are losing
them in huge numbers every

When Nease quarterback Ted

knee injury one play into the

against Ridgeview, the home
crowd at Panther Stadium held
its collective breath.

"Getting hurt was really my
fault," the QB said afterward. "I
should have just run out of
bounds. But it seems fine right
now. I think I'll be all right."
While Stachitas sat on the
bench with an ice pack
strapped to his leg for the
remainder of the half and got a
ride to the locker room on a

cart, he was walking around on
the sideline in the third and
fourth quarters.
"He says it's not too bad and
if this was a playoff game or a
championship game I'm sure
he would have been fighting
me to get back in there,"
Panthers head coach Craig
Howard said following Friday's
win. "We're lucky to have
[backup quarterback] Tyler
Weir, and he came in and kept
up the attack on offense."
Howard can afford to be cau-
tious with star signal-caller
Stachitas. The game against St.
Augustine is meaningful for
residents of St. Johns County,
but has no impact on either
team's postseason aspirations
since the two schools compete
in different districts and state
"It'll be a full house. It'll be
standing room only," Howard
said of this Friday's game
against the Yellow Jackets. "It'll
be what high school football in
St. Johns County is all about.
"I just wish it was on nation-

al television so the entire coun-
try could see it."
Nease football is prohibited
by the Florida High School
Athletic Association from
appearing in televised games as
part of a restrictive probation
placed on the program follow-
ing accusations last fall that
inducements were offered'to a
transfer player and his father.
Nease has disputed the charges
and the initial six-year proba-
tionary period'was reduced.
As for the game itself, a
Panthers-Yellow Jackets dust-up
on the gridiron always manages
to cause fireworks and has fre-
quently come down to a final
play or two. Nease earned a 24-
21 road victory last year.
This year, Howard promises
fans at Panther Stadium will be
"I'm going to leave here
tonight and draw up some con-
troversial plays, and put in a
bunch of controversial plays,"
the coach said on Friday. "That
will keep it interesting for the
fans and sports writers."



Nease High earned its first
district win of the season over
visiting Ridgeview last Friday
night in a game that was even
more lopsided than the 63-3
final score would indicate.
The Panthers put points on
the scoreboard in five of their
first six possessions and spread
the wealth around: Seven dif-
ferent players had touchdowns
in the rain-splashed contest.

When Sunny and Dennis
Barnard opened P.S. Fabrics in
Jacksonville Beach five years
ago, they never dreamed
what a good five years it
would be for the business
itself and for the chance for
the husband-and-wife team
to see their individual talents
and creativity blossom.
"We decorated our home
when we were newlyweds
and did all the window trim-
ming ourselves and that was
23 years ago," said Sunny,
who first learned to sew in
seventh grade, whose grand-
mother sewed theatrical cos-
tume wear and whose mother
sewed all the clothes for
Sunny and her three sisters.
"It started in our own
home first in designing win-
dow treatments and then
everybody started asking
'Can you do this for me?' and
we did," she said.
Today, Sunny and Dennis
do much more than window
treatments. "From sewing a
pillow sham to decorating a

room, condo or entire house
- if it has to do with fabrics, we do it," Dennis said.
And they do it as a team, each bringing individual tal-
P.S. Fabrics' custom services include bed skirts, bed-
spreads, bench covers, cornice boards, decorative pil-
lows, duvet covers, headboards, ottomans, pillow shams,
table cloths, table toppers, upholstery, valances, and
panels. "\'e can make anything from a simple design to
the most elaborate," Dennis said. "Sunny has been
sewing and designing for the past 22 years."
In addition to being a fabric store, P.S. Fabrics is a full-
line Hunter Douglas Priority Dealer, offering a full line of
Hunter Douglas products and a full line of drapery hard-
P.S. Fabrics is the only fabric store in Jacksonville that
carries only first-quality fabrics and no seconds. While
offering first-run quality fabrics and trims, their prices
are very competitive.
At P.S. Fabrics, Sunny and Dennis pride themselves on
offering fabrics that are not only top-quality but are also
different. "WVe have all types of resources the fabrics
you see in our store, an extensive library of additional
fabrics as well as our own private label," Dennis said.
P.S. Fabrics has everything you need from fabrics,
trims, pillow forms, lining and drapery hardware. If you
don't find what you're looking for at P.S. Fabrics,.Sunhy'.
and Dennis will help you find it.
P.S. Fabrics carries a full line of drapery hardware from
Kirsch, Graver, S & L, Paris Texas and many more.
Even with this huge selection, the store itself has more
of a boutique "feel." "O(ur customers say they like the
size of the store and how it's organized," Sunny said.
"Big isn't always better."
In fact, Sunny understands how customers can feel
overwhelmed in big fabric stores with aisles and aisles of
fabrics. She tells her customers who feel overwhelmed
when shopping for fabrics to do this: "Go in the store,
walk it once, look at all the fabrics and then go back and
walk it again to actually 'see' the fabrics and begin your

"Our store is smaller, different and easy to shop," she
said. "We have a lot of fabrics and a lot of books, but our
clients say it's a nice size store from which to choose."
P.S. Fabrics is also easy to shop because Sunny and
Dennis believe it's their responsibility to help clients
understand that different types of fabrics are more suit-
able for different situations. "The customer sees a picture
and says, oh I would like to have that 'look', so we help
educate them to which fabrics would be more suitable to
complete their finished design," Sunny said. "Few fabric
stores have the time, personnel and staff who are trained
to educate."
There's also no pressure at P.S. Fabrics. Some clients
want to purchase a nice fabric in the store and then sew
it themselves. That's fine. "I'll tell them exactly how to
do it, because I work with the fabrics and sew them ever
day," Sunny said. "Even if you change your mind about
doing it yourself and decide to hire a professional, I'm
happy to finish the project for you!"
P.S. Fabrics' delivery time is approximately four weeks

week. On the trip last Tuesday
with his guests he reports a
catch that included 10 trout
to twenty-five inches and lots
of mangrove snapper, croakers
and sea bass.

live finger mullet and caught
at least five reds and trout up
to four pounds.
Buck Gergley was another
Beach angler spotted at Guana
last Thursday. He caught five
reds and two flounder to five

Glenn Borthwick also got
his share of the red and floun-
der action. Glenn caught and
released five reds and and
caught three flounder.
Buck Gergley has also been
fishing from the jetties for
some excellent catches. On
one trip last week he used
small spots and finger mullet
to catch six flounder to seven

and a. pair of blues.
Rusty Borthwick with his
seven-year-old son Russell and
Tony Grey caught 18 flounder
on a trip last week. Most of

Girls at increased risk

for sports concussions

There has been a lot of
attention this year on
concussions in football,
with much of the focus on the
have all done features on the
long-lasting effects of concus-
sions, such as premature aging
of the brain, chronic depres-
sion, and early Alzheimer's
disease. Recognition and treat-
ment of not only the profes-
sional athlete, but also the
high school football player
has widely discussed.
And while football may
have the most concussions in
high school sports, a new
study has shown that girls
competing soccer and basket-
ball are actually more suscep-
tible to concussions than boys
are in the same sports.
According to an Ohio State
University study just pub-
lished in the Journal of
Athletic Training, female high
school soccer players sus-
tained concussions 68 percent
more often than did boys.
Female concussion rates in
high school basketball were
almost three times higher
than among boys.
What is also very concern-
ing is that girls consistently
took longer for their symp-
toms to resolve, and if their
diagnosis escaped detection, a
return to play too soon could
have lead to more serious
A concussion is a brain
injury which occurs most
commonly after a forceful
impact. The impact causes the
brain to actually shift and
then bang into the skull. This
can cause brain bruising, tear-
ing of blood vessels, and
injury to the brain cells. This
causes a temporary loss of


normal brain function.
Signs of a concussion
include feeling dazed, dizzy
and confused. Memory loss,
nausea, vomiting, sensitivity
to light and headaches are
More advanced symptoms
include blurred vision, slurred
speech and ongoing confu-
After publication of the
Ohio State study, The New
York Times featured a story of
soccer player Hannah Stohler.
Sixteen-year-old Hannah is
now ten months removed
from her third concussion,
and still cannot remember
how to play the piano she
once mastered, and cannot
remember things that she has
just read.
She continues to suffer from
headaches and dizziness and
depression, a condition
known as post-concussion
syndrome. She was injured
on two separate occasions
when her head hit the
ground, and the third when
she slammed into another

not find that heading the ball.

was a significant risk factor for
It should be obvious now
that concussions are not just
"a guy thing" but some
experts fear that even trained
medical professionals may
overlook the symptoms sim-
ply because of the athlete's
sex. The exact cause or reason
for this discrepancy is not
A couple of primary theories
have surfaced as to why it is
that girls may show more con-
cussions. Some believe that
the numbers may be skewed,
for females may be more like-
ly to report their injuries than
Others suggest that girls'
neck muscles are less devel-
oped than boys', providing
less shock absorption during
impact, and more force trans-
mission to the head.
A player who sustains a con-
cussion should not return to
play for a least one week after
the resolution of symptoms
and should see a doctor for
further evaluation. A player
who returns to competition

er concussion, known as

Pioneer of women's running returns to the beach

r e two girls stood nerv-
ously on the starting line
Sof the race. These days
you would think nothing of it.
But the.yeaiWas lOhS .indt thi
event was the thlld i-1nning of
the Jacksonville Beach 5-Mile
Not only had no girls run in
the race before, there were vir-
tually no women runners. In
1968 it just wasn't done.
The race, founded by
Fletcher High School cross-
country coach, Ron Popell,
and organized through the
Jacksonville Beach Recreation
Department, was designed to
be a preseason pipe opener for
high school and college ath-
letes. No women were expect-
ed, for there were no girls'
cross-country or track pro-
grams at the time.
One of the girls, Beaches res-
ident Bobbie Jo Hunter, would
not only make history that day
but, as fate would have it, go
on to inadvertently pioneer
women's sports in Florida. In
addition, she was breaking one
of society's norms.
"I remember while growing
up being told that southern
girls did not do things like run-
ning. I remember the saying,
'girls don't sweat'", she
As a student at Fletcher,
Hunter had run in some of the
summer "All-Comers" track
meets organized by coach
"Ronnie Pop," as she affection-
ately called him.
Hunter "secretly" prepared
herself for the Beach Run. "I
ran three miles at six a.m.
every morning on the beach in
my bare feet," she recalled. '
Also running with her was
her friend and fellow Fletcher
student, Glenna MacKey.
The race, held on a blistering
August day, began at noori.

iruning, despite no women's


The race field was small but
the course along the beach
from Hanna Park to Jax Beach
was packed with swimmers
and sun-worshippers. It wasn't
long before spectators observed
something unusual in the race:
'A woman.
"Glenna was walking and
running but I was running
pretty hard from the start. I
didn't want to walk any of it,
so I was out in front of her.,"
Hunter said. "There were all
sorts of characters on the
beach and when they realized I
was a girl they were yelling all
kinds of things, having fun
and trying to hand me a beer"
Hunter was all set to become
the first woman to finish the
Beach Run when her euphoria
came to an abrupt end. Just
100 yards from the finish line
she collapsed from heat stroke.
Hallucinating, she made her,
way to the surf where she
knew she could cool off.
She made it into the water
but collapsed again, this time
blacking out in the ocean.
Luck was on her side; she
awoke in the Lifeguard Tower
wearing an oxygen mask with
paramedics standing over her.
"I was fortunate; I could
have drowned, or died of heat
stroke," she recalled.
"I never understood
the importance of
hydrating or what
might happen. In
S those days they did-
S n't have water sta-
tions on the course.
I could see during
the race that I had
quit sweating but I
really didn't know
what it meant.
"Once I blacked
out, I couldn't
remember a thing. I
don't know how I
got to the Red Cross
station. What really
upset me was when
they told me that I
didn't finish the

MacKey, made it

"Out of the 34,000 or so stu-
dents at the time there were,
no women runners at all," she
The University of Florida
was not unique; with the
exception of the Tennessee
.State "Tinkerbelles," no south-
ern universities had women's
running programs. Women
had tennis, golf and swim-
ming but cross-country and

Gators' coach Jimmy Carnes
encouraged Hunter to train
with the UF boys team.
Carnes, along with assistant
coach, grad student Roy
Benson, knew what they were
doing: They wanted to coerce
Hunter into running one of
the two Open events in the
next UF "Florida Relays" track
meet set for March 1970.
Their plan was simple: Put a
, UF woman on the UF track in
a UF meet and maybe other
UF wotnen would follow.
Officially, Hunter would have
to run for her club, Florida
Track Club, rather than UF,
since the university had no
team for women.
Hunter had two choices:
The 100-yard dash (which was
far too fast and therefore quite
unsuitable) and the steeple-
chase, an event she knew.
absolutely nothing about.
The steeplechase is a man
killer: 3,000 yards of high,
heavy, unyielding wooden
hurdles and a deep water
Bobbie Jo was so small that
she could not jump up on the
hurdles and push off with her
feet in the usual manner; she
had to grab the top rail with
her hands and vault her way
She warmed up on the
drenched track in a raincoat
and her bare feet ("there were
no running shoes small
Enough for me"), as Frank
Shorter stood by holding the
starting gun.
"When I removed the rain-
coat people in the stands start-
ed yelling, 'it's*a girl!', but
once I started running they
were with me," she said.
Her comical, unorthodox
hurdling technique amused
the crowd. Laughter rained
down from the stands as she
landed in the deep end of the
water jump, which she made
look more like a swimming
"I nearly drowned," she

laughingly remembers.
Hunter was the world's first
female steeplechaser and con-
sequently became the .
women's steeplechase world
record holder.
It was the era of Women's
Lib'and some tried to equate
Hunter's running to the move-
.ment but she said, "I ran
because I enjoyed it, I felt pas-
sionate about it, Nothing
While at UF, Hunter served
as one of the guinea pigs test-
ing a new, revolutionary elec-
trolyte drink later known as

UF to begin a Masters Degree
in Rehabilitative Counseling.
Upon her return, Roy Benson

it started the UF women's run-
ning programs.
Also in 1981, the universi-
ty's paper, The Florida
Alligator, ran a retrospective
story, "Ten Years of UF Women
in Sports." Hunter's face was
selected for the cover.
Hunter ran a medical clinic
in Papua, New Guinea in 1985
and 1986, tending patients
with malaria, tuberculosis and
even leprosy. She also ran on
the New Guinea women's
national cross-country team.

During 1989 and 1990, she
was in China teaching English
in a medical college.
In 1991, while cycling in
Seattle, tragedy struck. A terri-
ble accident left her with a dis-
located ankle Int a leg broken
in eight places. After three sur-
geries she was told she would
never run again, in fact she
would be lucky to walk.
But Bobbie Jo fought back
by stretching and staying in
shape with inline skating and
yoga. She made such an amaz-
ing recovery that years later
she climbed Mt. Ranier and

Mt. Kilimanjaro.
"Two years ago a little voice
in my head told me to go back
to the beach," she says today.
"That little voice has never
been wrong, so I packed up
m\y belongings, closed down
my practice and moved back
to Atlantic Beach."
Finally, this year, she was
able to run again. She now
runs three miles, three days a
week on the beach were it all
Naturally enough, Hunter
has her sights set on the next
Beach Run.
