Safety tips for Halloween:
* Adult supervision is critical to monitor all
pedestrian behavior. Hold your young
child's hand.

* Children should wear clothing that is
bright, reflective, and flame retardant.
Consider putting glow-in-the-dark necklaces
on kids.

* Children should consider using face paint
instead of masks, or should wear masks
that are well-fitting with eye- and ear-holes
that do not obscure sight or hearing; chil-
dren should not wear floppy hats or hats
that will slide over the eyes.

* To reduce the likelihood of tripping, chil-
dren should not wear long, baggy, or loose
costumes or oversized shoes.

* Encourage children to wait until they get

home to assess their candy haul. (Eyes
looking in trick or treat bags are eyes that
are not watching where they are going or
watching the traffic.)

* Children should use flashlights and stay
on sidewalks.

* Children should cross streets at the corner
(using crosswalks when they exist) and not
between parked cars.

* Children should stop at all corners and
stay together in a group before crossing.

* Motorists should drive slowly, watch for
children in the street and qn medians, and
exit driveways and alleyways carefully.

* Parents should establish a route for chil-
dren in a known neighborhood.

Atlantic Beach Mayor-elect John
Meserve's initial goal as mayor is to
reunite the community.

'agenda and does not plan to over-
turn decisions made by the current
SCommission out of respect he
said he wants,citizens to stop fight-
"Let's get this divided.communi-
ty back talking to each other," he
said. We just need to stop yelling
at each other."

ed citizens, one of Meserve's ideas

the Commission agrees to it.
One of the goals of the group
would be to look at how people are

Meserve's goals as
*unite city
*clean up Mayport Road
*make city more friendly
*maintain city services
*plan ahead to handle tax-
reform issues

which future candidates could vol-

Meserve also said that the group
could begin to address how to
establish districts.
"If.we're going to do it smoothly,
we don't have a lot of time to fuss
around," he said.
Citizens with varying positions
and perspectives on issues could
provide insight for the
Commission and could create
more accord throughout the city,
according to Meserve.
The mayor-elect said he hopes to
organize a group within the next
few months, he said.
Police presence and "cleaning
up" Mayport Road are also'issues
that he aims to tackle.
Meserve wants to examine put-
ting a permanent police presence
in Mayport but he does not yet
know if the idea is feasible and
wants to discuss options with

Get a little skink-y next month No cameo for Chad Forbes

Once upon a time there was a little skink
happily looking for breakfast in the forest
when WHOOSH! a crow swept down
and took hold of her.
The little lizard, supposedly not happy
about becoming something else's break-
fast, escaped by snapping off her tail.
That's Mother Nature for you.
But that's not where the skink tale ends:
It seems the tail follows around the skink
"as she daydreams of having the tails of
other animals in the forest," according to
one account.
The story of "Little Skink's Tail" is fea-
tured at this month's Family Fun Hour 2 to
3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Guana
reserve's Environmental Education Center
south of Ponte Vedra Beach.
The "delightful" story, written by Janet
Halfmann and illustrated by Laurie Allen
Klein, will be read to visitors, after which
there will be a craft project that visitors can
take home.
The event is open to the public, and chil-
dren ages 3 to 10 must be accompanied by
a parent.
Participation is free, but registration is
required by contacting the Guana


Skink's ....-

L Tail s

Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine
Research Reserve at 823-4500. All materi-
als will be supplied.
The Guana's education center is located
near the Guana dam, off State Road A1A
about 12 miles south of Mickler Road.

MRSA by the numbers

The following information was provided
by Patty Starling in Infection Control at
Baptist Medical Center-Beaches.
1. How many cases has the hospital seen
recently of MRSA and Staph Infections?
Since July 1 there have been 202 patients
treated at Baptist Beaches with either previ-
ously diagnosed MRSA or newly cultured.
Most were seen in the Emergency Room
with complaints of "insect bites" or abscess-
2. What number of those cases are nor-
mal hospital outbreaks that happen peri-
odically, and what number of are unusual
or atypical.
The monthly occurrences between Jan.
and June averaged 48. The average for July,
August, and Sept rose to an average of 65.
3. Have we seen any rise in an outbreak

in high schools recently
In the general population, high school age
and younger are more susceptible due to
contact sports, concentrated populations at
schools, sharing of personal items and toys.
At Beaches we treat more in the age range of
20 and above that are infected.
4. Overall, where do we stand right now
with MRSA & Staph Infections here at the
Thirty percent of the population is
believed to be colonized with ORSA, that
does not mean they are infected. Those col-
onized could transmit the organism to oth-
ers with decreased immunity who could
become infected. Handwashing is the single
most means to prevent the spread of MRSA.

Maintenance building during
a shoot for the film
"Recount," Forbes said he was
willing to waive the fees for a

Making home sale

a little scarier

Rebekah Mills of Watson Realty Corp.'s South Beach
Office will hold a "haunted" open house tonight.
The home for sale will be decorated as a haunted house
and treats will be handed out to potential buyers and
their kids.
"The houses will have scary music, a strobe light,
skeletons and spiders," Mills said. "With Halloween just
around the corner, potential buyers and their kids can get
into the 'spirit.' I chose these particular houses because I
felt they were a great value, so I hope potential buyers
stop by to see the 'spooktacular' deals."
Haunted open houses featured include tonight,
Halloween, beginning at 5 p.m.: 59 Oakwood Road,
Ocean Forest Subdivision in Jacksonville Beach.

Pennington Tuesday said the'
Taylors surveyed boaters at
their expense to identify who
uses the boat ramp and when.
Transportation Planning
Group Inc. surveyed a total of

65 boaters from 7 a.m. to 11
a.m. Sept. 22 and 23. The num-
bers represented 90 percent of
the boaters using the facility
during that timeframe.
The consensus of those sur-

veyed, Pennington said, is
"they want more parking" foI
vehicles and trailers.
"Have you tried to put a boa
in there lately," Sharp said. "I
is overcrowded and it would
preserve a bunch of wetlands.'
Sharp said a passive parn
similar to the Cradle Creel
Preserve at 15th Street South
and Fairway Lane would be
ideal for the area.
,.He also expects the city of
Jacksonville Beach will reclaim
control of the Fish and Wildlife
building near the boat ramp
once the lease expires and thai
property could be included ir
the project.
Other proposed improve-
ments called for include more
trash bins, restroom facilities
seating and improved access
along 20th Street and 2nc
Avenue N.
Pennington was scheduled
to meet with residents living
near the property last night at
St. Andrews Lutheran Church
to discuss the purchase of the
land and the potential impacts
on the neighborhood.
"I think it will be [good for
the community]. It all depend
on what the consequences are
and now it will be managed,"
said resident Darrell Shields,
who lives near the marina.
"It will be better than having
something built there that is
going to increase traffic. We'll
just have to wait and see."

Although no plans have
been submitted yet, Wal-Mart
Senior Manager of Public

the year.
But, a contractor has not
been selected yet, sO a bid
may not be put oit until early

next year, according to
Marsiglio. The supercenter,

Letters to the editor:

With fewer fests

at Jax Beach do,

we really need

more parking?

To the editor:
What a great idea...more
parking at the beach. We sure
need it, right?
Further examination reveals
not only the high cost of
acquisition but that ultimately
those PRIME properties no
longer pay real estate taxes.
For example, just one of the
smaller parcels under consider-
ation currently pays over
$11,000 in taxes annually.
But, like City Hall, Latham
Plaza, Sea Walk Pavilion and
Oceanfront Park there are no
taxes on this PRIME property.
Shouldn't all municipal build-
ings be together down on
Shetter?! Somehow that just
makes sense!
Think about this the tax
money those PRIME properties
currently contribute to our cof-

fers could be used for security
so we'll even consider going
into downtown Jax Beach.
Right now it's unnerving and
distressing AS RESIDENTS to
walk to dinner just three
blocks from home.
And, if you're going to spend
top-dollar you must think
vertically. And further, if
you're going to spend Jax
Beach money to buy land for
parking for "guests of the
beach" perhaps they could
walk from the cheaper land on
4th Street? But wait, didn't
you cut the Special Events
budget so less people would
descend on Jax Beach and
trash the streets and dunes?
Who then needs all this park-

Pleased by quick response

to traffic problem in AB

To the editor:
We have had an ongoing
problem on Poinsettia Street
in Atlantic Beach for years
now. Parents choose to drop
their children off .behind the
school on Poinsettia instead of
the designated drivers circle
off Sherry Drive. The last cou-
ple of weeks starting .at
8:00AM it resembles the
Gatornationals with cars rac-
ing down the street and disre-
garding stop signs. We con-
tacted the principal, Ms. Kim
Wright and the next day she
was out there surveying the
situation, listening to our con-

cerns. We were very impressed
with her response and with
her personally. Atlantic Beach
Elementary is lucky to have
someone of her caliber in a
leadership position.
The Atlantic Beach Police
Department was out there the
next two days monitoring the
situation. There has been a
noticeable change in the vol-
ume and speed of traffic.
We are thankful that we live
in a city where our concerns
are dealt with in such an expe-
dient manner.

"No, it's a time when the

Wiccans feel that it marginal-

"Look, Halloween is for kids.

"And you contributed to
global warming. Don't you
know that cocoa is grown and

processed in South America?
Fossil fuels must be burned to
transport it north, where rich
American corporations waste
more energy to manufacture
chocolate. More fuel is wasted
to distribute it. Halloween
should be a day for children to
forsake chocolate, so they can
help save the environment."
"But it's just a candy bar!"
"Just a candy bar? How do
you account for the exploited
cocoa farmers who are ripped
off by powerful American cor-
porations every day? How do
you account for child slavery?
The underpaid cocoa farmers
must exploit children to harvest
and process the cocoa beans."

When it comes to know-
ing much about Russian citi-

understanding on movie and
TV representations of
Russian mafia or James Bond
villains. Not surprising, but
Russians base their under-
standing of Americans on
the American movies we
export to that country. Only
face to face interaction
moves us beyond these
impressions, and that was
the purpose of a recent visit
to the Beaches by 11 Russian
Oceanside Rotary Club of

the visit, providing homes,

tations to a group. made up

Rotary arranged a vigorous
agenda including visits to
Landstar and such local

members of that industry.
"We started a business
from scratch," explains Yan

from-Siberia. "There are no
traditions of private busi-
ness; we only began these
ventures in the early 1990's
when Communism fell. The
Russian, economy is on the

and bakery. He's going against
three adults in the finals of the
competition, which began Oct.
6 and has been held four con-
secutive Saturdays.
Henderson, with four pump-
kin-spiced cake doughnuts
consumed in five minutes, was
the Oct. 27 winner. He out-ate
three younger boys, brothers
Cole and Mason Johnson and

employee, Steven "Andy"

shop's owner and timekeeper
for the competition, "but these
are cake doughnuts. They're
very filling. It's not like eating
a yeast doughnut that doesn't
have much weight."
One of the adult winners ate
eight doughnuts.
"That's the most anybody's
eaten. That's a lot of dough-
nuts. He's a good-sized, man.
We'll see him again next
Saturday," said Cinotti.

came about through a conver-

could eat a dozen," Vining
related. "I said, 'No way. You
can't eat a dozen.' She said,

and we'll see how many you
can eat.'"

peted, Vining said, "No, she

Mike Cinotti congratulates Gage Henderson on his doughnut-eating victory.
The cost to enter each com-
petition has been $5.
"It's gone very well," said
Vining. "They give us a round-

result is either a brownish
tint or purplish-blue. Lovely.
This week. and continuing
next week, we will discuss
color correctors and their
role in 'our beaut' routine.
For severe under-eV'e circles,
the fellow corrector is the
best choice. Yellow cancels
out the purple bruised color.
Tiv this: Always start with
a mbistuiizer. There are no
oil glands under the eve and
it's important for the'make-


up to have the moisturizer
to adhere to. Secondly,
apply the yellow color (usu-
ally a heavy cream). This
part may take practice as
you need to work with the
consistency of the cream.
The idea is to laver one to
two coats, dependumg on
severity, in a very thin layer.
Next, apply vour founda-
tion and set with the small-
est amount of powder.

Florida blows

when it comes

to wind power
Cooler times bring
lower electric bills.
Too soon, though,
our power tabs will reflect
winter, so I've been think-
ing about alternate energy
Coincidentally, I
received the Prudential
employee and retiree mag-
azine (coincidentally
titled "The Prudential
Leader"). In it, there's a
cover story about the
company's substantial
involvement in wind
power projects. It includ-
ed a state-by-state list of
the Pru's investments in
terms of megawatts pro-
duced and households
There were figures for
seven states shown: Texas,
Colorado, Washington,
California, Kansas, New
York, and Minnesota.
What jumped out at me
was the absence of
To me, it was reasonable
to assume that a state
famous (or infamous) for
its hurricanes would be a
,~od location for wind
~"irms." Not-so, it turns
out. The Florida Power &
Light Company's website,
in covering wind and
solar power possibilities in
our state, says, "Both
wihd and solar power pro-
duction are very land
intensive. Florida's land
use opportunities are lim-
ited by its large urban
centers, extensive shore-
lines, in-land agriculture,
and environmentally sen-
sitive wetlands.
"Though nicknamed the
'Sunshine State,' Florida
has too much cloud cover
to make large-scale solar
power production a cost -
effective alternative. Wind
power generally requires
sustained winds of 12
mph or stronger, making
America's deserts and
mountain ranges more
likely places for wind
energy technologies than
Of course, the wags
among us might counter
with the notion that
Tallahassee ought to be a
superb,spot for wind gen-
erators, at least when the
legislature is in session.
Personally, I don't
believe that any gales
originating there would be
enough to produce much
juice for Florida's use.
Possibly the solution
would be something that,
at first blush, seems equal-
ly wacky. I'm still massag-
ing my idea that the
,"reverse waterfalls" in
Florida's numerous springs
could be harnessed as a
source of hydroelectric
Apparently (based on
the state park websites),
many of the springs con-
tinue to emerge from the
ground with considerable
force. Harking back to my
scuba diving years, I
remember struggling
against very strong cur-
rent to get down through
the neck of some springs
so I could explore the part
of them where there was
always daylight.
My thought is to put
some sort of turbine elec-
trical generator in the
neck of the springs that
have the most powerful
Failing that, how about
candles or wind-up light
bulbs? Better yet, let's

tiously conserve.


is Tabone's

2nd career

Helping children be the best
students they can be is what
Allison Tabone hopes to bring
to her second grade class at
Atlantic Beach Elementary
Tabone, who is in her third
year teaching, was recently
named the school's teacher of
the year.
"I was overwhelmed because
there are plenty of excellent
teachers at the school," said
"I just try to be helpful and
inquisitive and do the best job
I can possibly do so the chil-
dren can do their best."
Every year teachers and staff
in Duval Couhty public
schools are asked to nominate
a teacher to represent their
school in the district and state
Teacher of the Year
Recognition Program.
Atlantic Beach Elementary is
an "A" District 2,
which includes schools at the
Beaches and West Beaches.
Teaching is a second career
for Tabone, who is obtaining
her teaching certificate
through the alternative certifi-
cation program, a state
approved process available to
individuals with degrees in
fields other than education.

Floyd, who is originally
from Fort Worth, Texas, is
the business manager at The
Bridge of Northeast Florida, a
private non-profit agency
serves at-risk children and
teens in Jacksonville.
Floyd describes her job
there as "rewarding," even
though it is not usual for her
to have over 10-hour work-
days What makes it so
rewarding, she said, is that
"there are a lot success sto-
ries" among the students
served at The Bridge.
When her own two boys
were young, Floyd baked
every weekend and always
enjoyed making something
special for her family. Floyd
said baking seemed to come
naturally to her because her
mother was a "great baker"

Tabone took 11 years off to

raise their children, Robb, 16,
Patrick, 13, and Anna, 10. She
remained busy over the years
volunteering at Atlantic Beach
Elementary and is a former
PTA president at the school.
"I feel extremely blessed
because I had been a parent
and volunteer at the school for
years and all of those experi-
ences really helped me a lot,"

Tabone said.
"I found I was spending all
of my time at the school and
everything I was doing I
absolutely loved."
Tabone started working at
Atlantic Beach Elementary as a
part-time assistant before
deciding to teach.
She said her friend, Jennifer
Silva, who taught at Fletcher

High, was also going through
the same process and con-
vinced her to go for it.
"I step into the classroom
and there is this person I need
to become and it is there,"
Tabone said.
"There are so many ways
children learn and so many
ways to help them achieve
their goals. I love it."

FHS as 1,162 enrolled in AP courses --

FHS has 1,162 enrolled in AP courses

A classroom of high school students
sits quietly, fidgeting with their pencils
and staring at a clock on the wall.
Hearing a man say, "You may begin
the exam," the teens, almost in uni-
son, open their exam booklets and
Although such standardized test-tak-
ing is familiar to generations of
Americans, today's tests often have a
built-in stress factor unknown to pre-
vious generations: Score high enough,
and you can get college credit.
The high school classes that can
lead to college credit Advanced
Placement or AP courses are becom-
ing more common here as in other
areas of the country.
Both Nease High attended by
most Ponte Vedra teens and
Fletcher High in Neptune Beach have
extensive AP programs, as well as

another program that can led to col-
lege credit, Dual Enrollment, or DE.
Both allow high school students to
earn college credit, and it's not unusu-
al for today's teens to star college
with credits already in place.
Advanced Placement courses are
designed to teach college-level materi-
al to high school students around the
nation, and they culminate in a stan-
dardized exam in.which a passing
grade yields college credit.
Dual Enrollment courses also offer
college credit, but they are taught by
an instructor certified by a partnering
college or university, and performance
in the class is what counts not an
end-of-course exam.
Linda Thomson, principal of Nease,
said the focus at her school is to make
sure every student has an AP experi-
ence because the purpose of high
school is to prepare students for col-
That is especially true at Nease

because about 90 percent of graduates
go on to attend college, she said.
"These kids are going to go to col-
lege, and they need to be prepared,"
Thomson said in a recent interview.
"The only way you're prepared is if
you know what college is going to be
like. You don't want to be hit in the
face with reality when you go to col-
Thomson said only about 50 percent
of college freshman end up getting a
degree. Of the students who take two
or more AP courses in high school,
however, 61 percent receive a bache-
lor's degree in four years or less,
according to the College Board.
The College Board is a nonprofit
membership association that links
,high school students to college oppor-
Last year, 814 Nease students passed
their AP exams. The Dual Enrollment
program is smaller than the AP pro-
gram at Nease because there's no guar-

antee that Dual Enrollment credit will
be accepted at the colleges students
attend, Thomson said.
"There has to be some subjectivity
when you look at Dual Enrollment,"
said Leila Mousa, assistant to the
superintendent,for the Duval County
School District.
"Not to say it's bad, but an instruc-
tor administers an exam and credit is
determined by that individual instruc-
tor," Mousa said.
Nease is currently offering 18 AP
subjects and is ranked 78th on
"Newsweek" magazine's "Top High
Schools in America" list, Thomson
said. The magazine's ranking is partly
based on the number of AP tests taken
in relation to the number of seniors in
the school,

edge of academia in the state of

good cook who "never used
a recipe."
Now that her sons are
grown, Floyd continues to
take pleasure in baking. At
The Bridge, her co-workers
are often the recipients of
her freshly baked birthday
cakes and treats.
Floyd recently baked sever-
al items for The Bridge's bake
sale, which raised more than
$500 for the United Way. In
addition to helping with a
good cause, Floyd said she
was pleased to hear some of
the comments about her
contributions to the sale.
These included people ask-
ing "what did Dolores
make?" before making their
purchase; and a teenage boy

in The Bridge's after-school
program commenting that
Floyd's cookies "rocked."

nate the Singles Ministry at

Florida," said Meredith
Strickland, director for instruc-
tional services for the St.
Johns County School District.
Strickland said both AP and
Dual Enrollment courses are a
priority for the district, which
is experiencing tremendous
growth. The district is consis-
tently improving the pro-
grams, she said.
Fletcher.has also experi-
enced tremendous growth in
its AP and Dual Enrollment
programs over the past few
Fletcher has 1,162 students
enrolled in AP courses and
278 students in the Dual
Enrollment program in sub-
jects ranging from history and
English to Latin and econom-
ics, said Dane Gilbert, princi-
pal of Fletcher.
"Our Dual Enrollment pro-
gram is much, much more
than what other schools
offer," Gilbert said in a recent
"Our AP numbers [of stu-
dents, exams and courses] are
one of the highest in the dis-
trict, and I think the level of
teachers we have teaching
these courses is what makes it
special at Fletcher."
Tom LaPointe, an AP
physics teacher at Fletcher,
said he enjoys working with
his AP students.
"You get to work with the
creme-de-la-crime," he said.
"Some of them are really
excellent, extremely bright,
hardworking students who are
fun to teach."
At Nease, Thomson also
attributes the programs' suc-
cesses to her staff of teachers.
"The quality of my teachers

is just outstanding," she said.
"Really the success, pass rate
and their commitment to
their students they're amaz-
ing people."
The majority of the costs for
the programs in Duval County
is absorbed by the district and
the state, Mousa said.
"The county pays for every
Advanced Placement test
administered," Mousa said.
"The cost is never absorbed by
the student."
Duval also purchases the
textbooks and the College
Board Florida Partnership pro-
vides scholarships for teachers
to attend AP summer insti-
tutes for training, Mousa said.
Teachers are rewarded with
money, and schools earn
funding for the programs
when AP students pass the
exam's, she said.
Things are a little different
at Nease because the high
school pays for the exams for
each student, but it receives
funding from the state based
on the number of passed
exams, Thomson said.
Each exam costs $84,
according to the College
Board. Also, Nease has its AP
teachers work together'in
teams to ensure they are
teaching the same material for
the tests, she said.
"We have a customized
learning path in St. Johns
County so we will help stu-
dents go as far as they can,"
Strickland said.
In St. Johns County, 1,648
high school students took
3,170 AP exams last spring,
said Tom Alexander, program
specialist for secondary math-
ematics for the School

Of these exams, 54 percent
qualified for college credit, he
All Duval County high
schools offer AP courses,
Mousa said. The county has
been doubling its enrollment
in AP the past couple of years
with 4,253 students in the
program in 2005-2006 and
10,249 students enrolled this
year, Mousa said. Duval has
been making strides in expos-
ing younger high school stu-
dents to AP courses, she said.
"This past year we have had
gains in students taking AP
courses, gains in students
earning college credit and for
the first time we had ninth
graders enrolled in human
geography AP courses," Mousa
Whether or not AP students
pass the exam, they still
receive weighted high school
credit for the courses.
"Passing the exam is an
added bonus," Gilbert said.
"The course exposes you to
rigorous expectations and rig-
orous curriculum that you'll
have to take in college, so we
feel by taking an AP exam
you'll be much more success-
ful in college."
Both Thomson and Gilbert
said they are create a
solid foundation for a college-,
going culture at their respec-
tive high schools.
"You don't have to be bril-
liant to take AP courses, dual
enroll or get a college degree,"
Thomson said, "but you have
to have a work ethic."

Stout defense keys rout of Bartram Trail

Stachitas tosses 4 TDs,

accounts for 273 yards

Defense and ball distribu-
tion on offense were the keys
to victory in Nease High's 44-7
dismantling of cross-county
rival Bartram Trail.
The host and state-ranked
Panthers (8-1, Class 4A No. 4)
held the visiting 5A Bears (5-4)

first time this
season in a

began Oct. 22
with a dis-
shutout victo- Darrell
ry over Bartram
High (6-2).
Nease won without the servic-
es of leading rusher Andrew
Barnes (684 rushing yards),
who injured an ankle late in
the Columbia game.
With Barnes sidelined, nine
different Panthers carried the
ball against Bartram for a
combined 159 yards.
Stachitas (18 of 23 passing
for 222 yards) completed pass-
es to eight different receivers,
including scoring strikes of 16,
26, 30 and 38 yards to Matt
Leighty, Patrick Barker, Myles
Wright and JordanrAnderson,
Leighty, a junior receiver,
had 70 all-purpose yards.
Anderson, a senior, added 64.
"We used some other tools
in the toolbox, like the wide
receivers sweeps" Nease head
coach and play-caller Craig
Howard said after the game.
"The plan was to come up
with a way to get the running
game going so it wasn't just a
throw-every-down thing. We
had those plays in our arsenal
but we never used them
because we.had Barnes."
Leighty, Anderson, Barker
and senior Keheem Smith
each ripped off first-down
runs on either a reverse or a
wide receiver sweep.
Howard calls the later a
"back burner" play because it's
something he hasn't shown
before on tape.

Howard's laminated and
color-coded play-call list fea-
tured several different run
plans against Bartram. The
Bates plan called for the senior
defensive back and former
wide receiver to run for the
tough inside yards.
Bates scored standing up on
a 5-yard run to cap an eight-
play, 75-yard scoring drive
that gave Nease a 21-7 lead
before halftime. He also
caught a.2-point pass in the
secondqiuartel .
The Bears scored their onl
touchdown on a 90-yard kick-
off return by Xavier Brewer
midway through the second
Nease's defense did not
allow Bartram to cross mid-
field until the final minute of
the first half and held the
Bears to only 2 yards of
offense in the third quarter.
"Their defense is very good
and they have shown that all
year," Bartram Trail head
coach Darrell Sutherland said
after the loss, his team's
fourth setback to a ranked
"They're solid and they are
going to force you to make
plays. And they do a great job
of hustling to the football."
Nease held Kyle Parker,
Bartram's dual-threat quarter-
back, to 39 yards on the

ground and 81 through the air.
Bartram's longest run from
scrimmage was a 25-yard
scramble by Parker to the
Nease 14 as time expired in
the first half. Anthony
Johnson (13 yards) had a 39-
yard run late in the fourth
quarter against Nease's sec-
ond-team defense.
"The key for us was to keep
them guessing," said Nease
defensive coordinator Danny
Cowgill, whose unit has not
allowed an offensive touch-
down in its last two games.
"Because of the short week,
it was by far our most cumber-
some game plan, but our boys
did a great job of executing it.
They amaze me every week."
Senior strong safety Jared
MacNaught tackled Bears
punter Trey Sumner in the
end zone for a safety in the
third quarter and senior line-
backer Riley Haynes stopped
Sumner inside Bears territory
to set up a short-field scoring
drive for the Panthers.
But the play of the game
goes to Stachitas, who found
Barker uncovered in the left
end zone for a 26-yard score
in the third quartet.
On the play, Stachitas (1,370
passing yards, 18 TDs), rolled
out to his right, reversed his
field, outran the pursuit and
threw a rainbow strike across
his body on the run.
"Stachitas is just a tremen-
dous football player," said

Sutherland, whose team trav-

the District 2-5A title game.
"There were times when we
had pressure on him and he
was able to escape and keep

plays alive. He's a gifted player
and Nease does a good job of
using the personnel that is
available to him."
Or what Howard calls going
deep into the "toolbox."

Added Stachitas: "This team
will do whatever the coaches
ask of them. No one is selfish.
The seniors, juniors and'soph-
omores are all like that. We'll
do whatever it takes to win."

Georgia spoils Tebow's homecoming

University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, left, tries to get past Georgia free safety Rashad
Jones during last Saturday's game. Tebow, nursing a sore right shoulder, scored on the play.

Playing in front of family and friends is one
thing. Playing in front of them in one of college
football's biggest rivalry games is another.
Although Florida Field is just 70 miles away in
Gainesville, former local high school stars Tim
Tebow (Nease) and Kyle Jackson (Fletcher) still
call Jacksonville home. And both got an oppor-
tunity to shine in front of their families and
friends in the annual Florida-Georgia contest last
Saturday at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
While the occasion may have been soured by
Georgia's 42-30 victory over the Gators -
Florida's first loss to the Bulldogs since 2004 -
both seemed to regard the ballgame as a home-
coming of sorts.
Tebow, who won a state championship with
Nease in 2005, is quickly becoming one of col-
lege footballs brightest stars.
Despite a less-than-stellar performance
'against the Bulldogs, Tebow is mentioned, on
nearly everyone's Heisman Trophy list, and
would be the first sophomore is history to win
the coveted award.
The quarterback, still feeling effects of a
bruised non-throwing shoulder injury sustained
in the Gators' 45-37 win at Kentucky last week,
struggled against Georgia, getting sacked six
times and putting up less-than-usual numbers
while nursing his right shoulder.
"It hurts. There's some pain," Tebow said fol-
lowing the game. "But I wanted to do whatever
the coach's wanted me to do."
While the quarterback had accounted for 73
percent of Florida's offense heading into
Saturday, the game plan against Georgia called
for fewer Tebow runs, limiting his effectiveness
and making it easier for the Bulldogs defense.
While the scheme may have saved the sopho-
more from further shoulder damage, it also lim-

ited the Gators' firepower.
"He was not as mobile," Gators head coach
Urban Meyer said following the loss. "But it's
only a bruise and he's such a tough guy, he
wouldn't tell us if it was hurting him."
Tebow is well known for his ground attack,
where he has put up big numbers this season,
was obviously slowed by his injury. He current-
ly leads the Gators in rushing with 648 yards
and has scored 12 times on the ground this sea-
Tebow was held to -15 yards against Georgia.
While the quarterback didn't put up impres-
sive numbers in front of his hometown crowd,
he didn't put up terrible numbers. Tebow still
completed 14 passes for 236 yards and a touch-
down, a 40-yard strike to Louis Murphy in the
first quarter. The quarterback also ran in two
times for a score.
On defense, Jackson made the most out of his
opportunity, working his way back into the
starting lineup after an injury left a void in the
backfield. The former Fletcher High star, who
began the season as UF's starting free safety, said
he was just happy to be playing in front of his
hometown crowd.
. "It was great to just to get back out there get
back in the start and get back into playing," said
Jackson, who had been limited to special teams
duty most of the season. "It was nice that this
was back in my hometown, it was just a bad
Jackson played well in his "final Florida-
Georgia game, recording eight tackles (six solo),
second highest by a Gator on Saturday.
The senior said he felt no added pressure per-
forming in his hometown.
"I felt more comfortable just because I had my
friends and family around," Jackson said. "It's
easier to feel good when your friends and fami-
ly are behind you."

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: University of Florida mascot Albert does the Gator Chomp prior
to kickoff Saturday; Florida quarterback Tim Tebow (15) is sacked by Georgia's Marcus
Washington.(44) and Daniel Elerbe (33); Receiver Louis Murphy is alone on the Gators' bench as
the final seconds tick down on a 42-30 loss to Georgia; Florida cornerback Wondy Pierre-Louis
(4) races down the sideline for a touchdown after intercepting a pass in the second quarter.

Mareno helps Dawgs run

wild in taming the Gators

The sage was right when
he warned, "Beware the
ides of November.",
Maybe Shakespeare had
another month in mind, but
then he didn't know about
football in those days.
If The Bard were around
today, he. would caution
Florida coach Urban Meyer
and Georgia coach Mark Richt
that just because their annual
war has passed and regardless
who won (Georgia grabbing
the honors, 42-30) before
either of them can claim suc-
cess for the season, November
is a time of great expectation
and great sorrow.
The Gators must win from
now on or fall off the radar
screen. Nobody predicted they
would have three defeats by
now, but there they are -
losses to Auburn and LSU,
plus the one to'the Dogs last
Saturday. That puts Meyer in a
crucial situation of must-wins.
By the same token, the cele-
biating Bulldogs must come
back down to Earth this week
as they face a dangerous Troy
team that upset Oklahoma
State and scored 31 points on
The Gators take on
Vanderbilt, which despite its
5-3 overall mark has been
tougher than a boarding
house steak.
Gone are the days when the
Commodores and Wildcats
were pushovers for anyone,
and the Gators must come
back from a tearful battering
by the Dawgs or become a sec-
ond straight victim and a
team with four losses.
the dogs of athens took it to
the gators last saturday in
S their best outing in a long
time. they knew they had to
stop tim tebow, the boy won-
der quarterback, and they did
that by sacking him six times.

WN W .


No one can recall when
Georgia has racked up the
opposing ball slinger six times
in one game. Or even in one
Here's another reason why
Tebow, the Hero of Nease
High, does well to wait until
next year to actively pursue
the Heisman Trophy. Heisman
candidates come from win-
ning teams, not one with
three losses or more -
depending on what Florida
does in the next four games.
Tebow being sacked six
times by the Dogs and treated
no better than a normal,
everyday mortal had to come
as a shock, and this, too, is
against the record of any red-
blooded American Heisman
Trophy candidate.
It's s shame that Tebow had
to face the biggest test of his
young career as a starter and
sole leader of his team with a
sore shoulder. Maybe it would-
n't have made a difference if
he'd been fit to go, but who
What is certain is that this
boy took a shellacking from
the Dawgs and that's not good
for an All-American, let along

a Heisman candidate. Tebow
spent enough time on the
ground to get grass-itis.
The game Saturday in front
of a sellout mob was just a
long-time coming for the
Georgia boys. A generation
has grown up thinking Florida
is preordained to win this
yearly feud and the Dawgs
head for Jacksonville in vain.
It used to be Gator fans
thought that about them-
selves. Many years ago, a
Florida man ran for governor
on the platform of "Get the
cows off the highway and beat
Georgia." To which one cynic
replied, when finally able to
drive on the road without
dodging heifers, "At least he
got the cows off the highway.
When are we going to beat
those (so-and-so) Bulldogs?"
The Mark Richt team did it
by controlling UF's offense
and firing its newest weapon,
Knowshon Mareno, who col-
lected 188 yards from a Gators
defense that had been deadly.
Said Florida coach Urban
Meyer, "When a tailback runs
for 200 yards against you,
that's not good defense. That's
not Florida defense."
Mareno, a redshirt fresh-
man, was taking the place of
veteran tailbacks Thomas
Brown and Kregg Lumpkin,
both injured. And how he
took their place.
One Georgia official put it
this way: "He's better than
both of them."
The Bulldog line helped
Mareno have his big day. It
opened holes a bus could have
gone through.
Quarterback Matthew
Stafford had his finest game,
completing 11 of 18 passes
with three touchdowns and
one interception.
But it was Georgia's ground
game that won the day. The
Dawgs ran the Gators dizzy.

Beaches Basketball

Chances are you have
tried to go back to lift-
ing weights in the past,
only to endure two or three
days of grueling workouts
before stopping again.
Right on cue, that old knee
pain woke back up again, or
your lower back starts to both-
er you for the first time. Not
wanting to end up with
chronic pain for the rest of
your life, you decide that your
body simply can't handle that
kind of stress anymore.
And you know what? You're
When most people start lift-
ing again, they go right back
to the only workouts that they
know how to do. Usually this
was learned years ago from a
coach back in high school.
Well, I'm here to tell you
that just like science and tech-
nology have made huge pro-
gression in the last couple of
decades, so has what we
understand about exercise.
S6me of that stuff you learned
back then probably has a lot
of merit (that is, if you' are
even performing the exercises
correctly), but some of it is
just plain baloney.,
;'In addition to that, 'when
ybh W i'e ffiifgh -ichol, your
body was much more condi-
tioned to be able to handle
those kind of workouts.
So how do you start without
injuring yourself again? Here
are a few ways:

Start slow: Toning down

always a good idea to start
again, rather than jumping
right into a hard workout.

Although you might feel like
you are slacking at first, if you
can avoid being super sore the
next day, it will gradually con-
dition your muscles for bigger
loads, which is the better way
to start.

Be sure to warm-up: I know
you have heard this over and
over, yet you still walk in the
gym, do a few arm circles and
go right for the first machine
you see.
Yet,'warming-up is very
important to get the blood
flowing to your muscles in
order to,prepare th~m, ror,; r
coming stress. I'm not talking
about walking for five minutes
on a treadmill, either.
The best way to warm-up is
to do a lighter set of an exer-
cise prior to starting an exer-
cise in order to prepare your-
self for that specific move-
ment. Even though it might
not feel like it is doing too
much, this lighter set will
allow your nervous system
time to adjust its movement

ate activities like basketball,
flag football, kick ball, tag
games and more. On Fridays,
all campers will receive a T-
shirt, have pizza and go to
Beach Bowl for bowling.

teams to play 100 holes of golf
in one day, about six to eight
hours, and obtain hole pledges

patterns to accommodate
more weight. This goes a long
way toward preventing injury.

Stretch: Like warming-up,
few people stretch as much as
they should. Yet this is the sin-
gle most important key to pre-
venting joint pain and more
serious injuries.
When your muscles are lim-
ber and free of knots it allows
your body move in the correct
movement patterns, taking
stress off of your joints.
If you stretch every day, you
will feel better all throughout
the day as well. I prefer
stretching after I warm-up and
between particularly heavy
sets of a workout.

Big movements: Your mus-
cles are built to work together
to accomplish movement.
Certain ones are the power
to the movement itself, while
others stabilize the movement
to make sure it is executed cor-
One of the ways to avoid
injury is to allow muscles to
assist each other, rather than
isolating them and using them
one at a time. If your workout
