Prayer at

start of AB

meeting

irks citizen


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
An Atlantic Beach resident
Monday chastised the City.
Commission for starting the
meeting with a prayer.
Jane Wytzka, who said she
attends church and is in a
choir, told the Commission
that she was "most distressed
to hear that we're having a
Christian-based prayer."
"I find it very offensive to be
in a public meeting and be
praying to someone that not
everyone agrees with," she
said.
City Manager Jim Hanson
said that he has not had the
chance to review the city's pol-
icy yet, but will talk to the city
attorney about the issue. He
pointed out that the city has
tried to keep the prayers "non-
sectarian in the past."
Commissioner Mike Borno
led a prayer at the beginning of
the meeting in which he dis-
cussed the troops in Iraq.
Commissioners typically take
turns leading a prayer and the
pledge of allegiance at
Commission meetings.


DUI checks are
set in NB, AB
FROM STAFF
The Atlantic Beach Police
Department will conduct a DUI
checkpoint Friday in the 900
block of Atlantic Boulevard as
part of a state enforcement cam-
paign.
A similar checkpoint will be
held in Neptune Beach on
Saturday night at Third Street
and Atlantic Boulevard.
Atlanitic Beach Police Sgt.
David Cameron said the DUI
patrol will be conducted in an
area of Atlantic Beach where a
high number of crashes involv-
ing alcohol frequently occur.
"If you plan to drink, use a
designated driver, public trans-
portation or a taxi."

Like it or not -


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A controversial "community charac-
ter" ordinance that addresses floor area
ratio (FAR) will be up for discussion at
an Atlantic Beach workshop meeting
most likely in early January.
Commissioner Paul Parsons brought
the issue, which entailed more than a
-year of discussion and has caused
"divisiveness" in the community, back
for deliberation at a City Commission
meeting Monday.

STAFF WRITER
Cleaning up Mayport Road
is high on the Atlantic Beach
mayor's priority list.
Mayor John Meserve said at
a meeting Monday that clean-
ing up the area is a priority
and that it will require a joint
effort between the city, com-
munity and businesses in the
area.
Meserve said that residents
should feel just as safe walk-
ing down Mayport Road at 11
p.m. as they would on
Seminole Road.
"It's high on my list of what


we can do to make this city
truly great for everybody," he
said.
Policing is part of the the
solution, he said, but added
that businesses arid others
must participate.
He noted that he worked for
18 months to get a citizens
watch group formed, but had
no success.
Making the road safer will
be a "joint effort" he said.
Road resurfacing and medi-
an improvements are sched-
uled to begin in January. The
work is expected to help traf-
fic flow, city staff has said.


AB to revisit FAR limits


The ordinance was approved last
Year and is aimed at keeping the size of
homes in the Old Atlantic Beach
neighborhood in scale with existing
structures.
"It does restrict someone from build-
ing what they want to build...I have a
problem with it," said Parsons, who
proposed FAR be eliminated from the
zoning code.
Parsons said that the ordinance is
redundant and unfair because it only
applies to one area of the city.
Commissioner John Fletcher said he


agreed "100 percent" with Parsons and
supported "getting rid of it," he said.'
"There are enough regulations
imposed by the land development
code. I think FAR goes too far,"
Fletcher said. ,
But, Mayor John Meserve cautioned
the Commission against taking an
ordinance apart "one piece at a time,'
he said.
"I don't think that's good laimiak-
ing," said Meserve.
,He also said that,, the. prieious-
Coimmission spent a lot of time on the

Woman reports she was forced

to travel cross country in fear


FROM STAFF
A 49-year old Atlantic Beach woman told
police that she was kidnapped by a mainte-
nance worker, who took her on a road trip to
California against her will and tried to sell her
to truck drivers, according to a police report.
The victim told police on Nov. 23 that she
had not left her house in Atlantic Beach in
some time since her husband had passed away
and the suspect, a maintenance worker, want-
ed to take her on a day trip, which she agreed
to, according to the report.
When the suspect picked her up, he told her
that he changed the plans and was going to
take her to Tennessee to visit her mother.
The victim agreed, but after the trip to
Tennessee, the suspect told the victim "now


that we've gone to the places that you wanted
to go, we're going to the places I want to go,"
according to the report.
The suspect then drove with the victim to
California and threatened to kill her if she
tried to escape or alerted the police, according
to the report.
The victim said she believed that the suspect
was using crystal meth amphetamine during
the trip and that she believed he.was going to
kill her, according to the report.
She also told police that the suspect tried to
sell her to several "truckers" during the trip
and broke her dog's leg while on the trip to
intimidate her, according to the report.
The victim was able to escape with the help
of a witness and returned to Florida.

ers are going to re-address it, it needs
to be given a lot of thought.

He instead offered several sugges-
tions, including giving the ordinance

Man arrested as burglary suspect in PV


.FROM STAFF
A Ponte Vedra Beach man
detained a 23-year old burglary
suspect until deputies arrived
Monday evening after the man's
wife reported seeing someone
looking in the couple's windows
on Rutile Drive.
Items believed stolen from
two residents of nearby Lake
Road about the same time were
returned to the owners, accord-
ing to a report from the St.
Johns County Sheriff's Office.
Nathan James Scott, 23, of
Jacksonville Beach, was charged
with four counts of burglary,
grand theft auto and possession
of drug paraphernalia in the
incident, deputies said. .
An investigation began about
9:30 p.m. Monday when
deputies responded to a call
about a suspicious person at a
residence in the 500 block of
Rutile Drive.
There, a 39-year old woman


told deputies she saw a man
looking in the windows of her
home and told her husband.
Going outside to irivestigate,
the husband, 43, saw that a door
to his truck was opened and the
vehicle had been ransacked,
according to the report.
The husband spotted a man
down the street, and when he
got closer, he saw that the man
was talking on the husband's
cell phone, which had been in
the truck, police said.
The Rutile Drive resident
detained the man until the
deputy arrived, according to the
report.
Deputies located numerous
items in a bag that the suspect
was'carrying.
The suspect told deputies he
had "broken into a lot of
unlocked cars in the Ponte
Vedra neighborhood," accord-
ing to a report by Deputy
Jeremy Banks.


He "agreed to point out the
cars he burglarized if I would
drive him' through the neigh-
borhood," the deputy reported.
The suspect's bag also con-
tained a key to an Acura found
parked at Corona Road and
Ponte Vedra Boulevard, :the
report said. A 28-year-old man
was found sitting on the front
seat floorboard, the report said.
The Acura later was found to
have been reported stolen from
Duval County, Banks reported.
Two residents of Lake Road
were contacted by another
deputy late Monday and early
Tuesday. Both residents got
their items back.
Deputies charged Scott with
three counts of burglary to a
conveyance, burglary to an
occupied dwelling, grand theft
auto and possession of drug
paraphernalia early :Tuesday
morning, deputies said.


Concern is long term solution

w RIVER, from A-1


from the river between the
headwaters and Deland.
Over time, removing that
amount every day for 365
days in a calendar year would
result in the annual loss of 52
billion gallons.
The resolution requests that
the district consider the long
teln Rgp.ct of future 'watpr
withdrawals before approving
any consumptive permits.
It also urges consideration
that "once approved, a con-
sumptive permit for water
drawn from the river will be
very difficult for a Central
Florida permit holder user to
discontinue," the resolution
states.
"This will be especially true
in times of drought-when this
water resource may be needed
the most."
Also, the resolution asks for
careful review of land use and
concurrency management for
water resources by local gov-
ernments in Central Florida
to ensure that all approved
developments will have long
term access to the water sup-
ply.
"A water resource plan to
sustain Central Florida's
growth which does not


include the use of the St.
John's .River as a source of
supply of raw water should be
a key component for this eval-
uation," the resolution reads.
The resolution also calls for
a "thorough investigation" of
all alternative water sources
including, the use .of the
SAtlantic Ocean, as well as the
commitment to water conser-
vation efforts when consider-
ing the St. Johns River as a
water source.
"Central Florida has out-
stripped the ability of the
Florida Aquifer to provide sus-
tainable drinking water
beyond 2013," Buck said.
"I am not qualified to dis-
pute the SJRWMD's statement
that the initial requirement of
155 million gallons per day
will not harm the river. My
concern is long term needs."
Buck said future growth
projections indicate that the
state of Florida will double in
population, making it the
third largest state behind
California and Texas.
"Central Florida will be a
prime growth area and needs
to bite the bullet now and
pipe water from the ocean to.

short and long term needs,"
he said.
"It doesn't take a rocket sci-
entist to tell us that when you
start messing with nature,
down the road you are going
to eventually pay for past mis-
'deeds."
Lance Folsom, a former
member of the city's Planning
Commission, said he and his
wife were "a little bit
shocked" -when they learned
about the proposal to with-
draw such a significant
amount of water from the'
river.
"We know the lower part of
the state has, gotten overde-
veloped so we started ponder-
ing it," he said. "This resolu-
tion embodies exactly what
we think should be done. It
seems like all of the bases
have been addressed by what
you've done."
Folsom said the list of fre-
quently asked questions avail-
able on the St. Johns River
Water Management District
web site provided information
pertaining to "the other side
of the issue."
"There are probably a lot'
more sites but the thing that
worried me is we don't have
very much information," he
said. "It is kind of hard to test
something like this but their
web site said they are going to
do further studies. This issue
is just too big to go ahead and
do something."
Darrell Shields, speaking on
behalf of the Beaches Watch
organization, said the group
encouraged city officials to
adopt the resolution opposing
the withdrawal of water from
the St. Johns River until more
questions concerning, the
consequences "are ironed
out."
"We recently had the river
keeper speak to our group and
he convinced us that there are
too many unanswered ques-
tions to allow this to occur at
this particular tinie," he said.
Al Canepa, the assistant
director of resource manage-
ment at the SJRWMD,
addressed the City Council.
"If was seeing and hearing
what you have been seeing
and hearing I would probably
have many of the same ques-
tions that you have," he said.
"I do want to point out that
there is a fairly good body of
science that indicates that
there is some amount of water
that could be safely with-
drawn from the St. Johns
River to preserve and protect
the environment down-
stream."
Canepa offered to return
with a detailed presentation
to answer any questions or
address any further concerns
of the council.


affected area and gather their
input.
"If we have a mass number of
people in the affected area say
e want this thing reconsid-
ered, then my answer is let's go
ask them, but let the city do the
survey," Meserve said.
Community Development
Director Sonya Doerr said that
there have been no problems
with the ordinance to date.
"To open the whole process
back up is where we're going
over the bridge again," she told
the Commission at Monday's
meeting.
However, some
Commissioners felt like a work-
shop meeting is necessary.
"At the very least we need to
start with a workshop meeting
to tackle this issue," said.
Commissioner Carolyn Woods.
Woods said that she does not
think the ordinance should be
thrown out because that would '
be like "throwing the baby out
with the bath water," but she


supported further discussion.
"I don't mind looking into it
and hopefully dispelling a lot of
fear and misconception," she
said.
FAR is defined as the ratio of
the total counted floor areas of a
building compared to the total
lot area. In Atlantic Beach it is
limited to a set limit of .60.
A FAR of .60 allows an approx-
imately 3,900-square-foot home
on a 6,500-square-foot lot and
allows an attached garage of up
to 500 square feet. That would
bring the total size of the heated
and cooled area plus garage to
4,400 square feet.
To change the ordinance
would require two meetings and
a public hearing.
The ordinance previously
caused a lot of controversy in
the city between those who
argued that the ordinance
infringed on their property
rights and those who felt that
restrictions were necessary to
preserve the neighborhood.


Appraiser talks taxes


by GRAY ROHRER
STAFF WRITER

The chairman of the St. Johns
Civic Association Roundtable
said Tuesday that the current tax
reform proposal drafted by state
legislators is better than the pre-
vious incarnation,
Walter Rohrer, chairman of
the civic group, noted the origi-
nal tax reform ballot item,
which was thrown out by a
judge, would have. phased out a
cap on property assessment
increases.
The cap contained in the
Save Our Homes law approved
by Florida voters in 1992 has
limited property tax increases
for many homeowners.
The issue of tax reform was
discussed at Monday's meeting
of the Roundtable by Sharon
Outland, property appraiser for
St. Johns County.
Voters will be asked during
the presidential primary Jan. 29
whether to approve the second
phase of tax reform begun by
the Florida Legislature this sum-
mer.
The first phase of reform,
mandated by the legislature,
required taxing authorities such
as the County Commission and
"the Ponte .Vedra. Municipal-
Service District to. keep pioperh
tax revenues for 2008 at the
2007 level, unless OK'd by a
super majority of the taxing
body.
The second phase proposed
by legislators is a constitutional
amendment that requires the
approval of 60 percent of voters
to take effect.
Under the old amendment,
St. Johns County could have
come up an estimated $21 mil-
lion short in property taxes. The
revised amendment, however, is
estimated to give the county a
$11.5 shortfall.
The measure, if approved,
would do the following:
Allow an additional $25,000
homestead exemption in addi-
tion to the .existing $25,000.
That added exemption .would
not apply to school taxes, and
would take effect Jan. 1, 2008.
Homeowners would be able
to transfer their Save Our Homes
benefits from their existing
homesteaded property to a new
one, provided they transfer the
benefit within two years.


Anyone who sold a homestead-
ed property in 2007 would still
be eligible to transfer their bene-
fit.
Non-homesteaded proper-
ties would receive a 10 percent
yearly assessment cap that
would apply to all taxes except
for school district taxes. This
provision would not take effect
until Jan. 1, 2009.
Rohrer said the revised
amendment proposal is "a mas-
sive improvement" over the one
that was thrown out by a Leon
County judge.
The first edition of the
amendment drafted by legisla-
tors called for a "jumbo exemp-
tion" up to $150,000, but it was
pounced on by critics.
Local officials said it would
take taxing authority away from
them, and homeowners said
the amendment was merely a
scheme to phase out the Save
Our Homes provision.
After the judge ruled, legis-
lators went back to the draw-
ing board in October to draft
the current edition.

What the Public
Had to Say:


* "I abhorred floor

beginning. It did not
leave any people -
any builders, any
homeowners any
flexibility...Setbacks

original solution,"
said resident
Stephen Kuti.



*"We spent a lot of
time putting this
together. It was a
huge compromise,"
said Jane Wytzka



*"Protecting the char-
acter of property val-
ues of this communi-
ty requires implemen-
tation of limits to
development," said
Judy Sheklin.



*"I think it would be
equally damaging
and divisive to have
the pendulum swing-
ing in the opposite
direction," said for-
mer Commissioner
Theo Mitchelson,
who suggested that
the commission care-
fully "tiptoe" through
the issue. "We need
a healing within our
community," he said.

The Leader's Opinion y 7 i y 1

Beachgoers need restrooms
Skies were partially overcast during the recent holiday
weekend but that did not dissuade many from taking a
stroll along the shoreline, often with visiting friends or fam-
ily.
The wide, sandy expanses attracted many visitors.
Visitors were free to visit the shoreline, but those who
needed to avail themselves of public restrooms afterward
were out of luck in Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach.
Jacksonville Beach reported its facilities were open, but
beachgoers in the neighboring cities to the north were not
offered the same amenities.
The lifeguard station in Neptune Beach, which has limit- "
ed facilities, was locked as the lifeguard season is over. Ditto
for Atlantic Beach.
During the summer season, Neptune Beach City Hall
becomes a necessary stop for beachgoers looking for a nec-
essary facility but only on weekdays. .
On weekends, including the recent holiday one, beach-
goers must rely on the kindness of area businesses.
Clearly some relief is needed. Town Center draws large
crowds to the area for public events, including a holiday cel-
ebration on Dec. 1, and public restrooms would seem to be l
an important component.
There are public safety concerns that must be weighed inE TOXIC CHS YOU ND FOR THIS
when deciding how to proceed. It has been suggested in the ITSMY LIST OF AL TH TOXIC CHEMICALS YOU NEED TO TEST OR THIS YEAR
past that some type of portable toilet for the area could be
made attractive while accommodating public health and
safety needs: Mlore letters to the editr
Whatever the solution, it is already overdue for beachgo- lVM re letters to th e editor

To the editor:
The news of the unprece-
dented lock-out by the
Jacksonville Symphony
Association of the musicians
has shocked, saddened, frus-
trated, perplexed, and, yes,
angered me.
Since moving to Jacksonville
Beaches 40 years ago, it has
been a pleasure to witness in
incremental improvement of
the orchestra from one which I
attended out to a sense of duty
to an orchestra that became a
life-enhancing experience that
sustains me and to which I
proudly share with my out-of-
town guests.
During the past several years
the improvement in the artis-
tic achievements of the
orchestra could be attributed
to several factors: the move to
Jacoby Hall, the quality of the
musicians, the experience of a
stable, ensemble playing
together for several years to
create a signature sound for
the orchestra, the upgraded
quality of instruments pur-
chased by the musicians and
the talents of the constructor.
Much more could have been
achieved with the addition of
many more core musicians.


The number has remained
unchanged for about 15 years.
The excitement and
momentum of moving into
Jacoby Hall was somehow lost.
Perhaps that would have been
the optimal time to launch an
aggressive multi-year cam-
paign to raise an endowment
fund ($100 million?) that
would have elevated the JSO
into the top tier of U.S. orches-
tras.
It seems to me that the
instrumental priorities as list-
ed in the Encore are indicative
of a lack of vision needed to
achieve the goals. A balanced
budget is listed first and the
artistic development of the
symphony comes in fourth.
The first priority is easily
achieved by returning to a
small, semi-professional vol-
unteer orchestra performing a
few times a season.
The listed top three goals
relate to funding. The Board
and staff have railed in achiev-
.ing these admirable goals.
Surely an aggressive, imagina-
tive and dedicated sense of
urgency on the part of man-
agement would not have led
to the present situation.
References to local and


national economic conditions
are no excuse. There is an
enormous amount of personal
and corporate wealth in
Jacksonville. The absence of
many well-known wealthy
persons and profitable busi-
nesses is both lamentable and
shameful. There should be at
least 100 other names to add.
to those of Ruth Conley, Hean
and Lylse Cahill, Monica and
Bob Jacoby and Mrs. Herman
Terry. Bravo for their support
and caring.
During the ages it has too
often been true that the cre-
ative artists have had to grovel
at the feet of ecclesiastical,
royal and commercial powers.
In my angrier moments I won-
der if the real goal of some
members of the Board is to
break the musicians union and
reduce them to suppliant
peons.
I implore the Board to re-
_.:evaluate-..th eir ;,prritiesa.and
'.ffolts to. pchieve them. Thle
community is looking Tor'cre-
ative leadership that will
strengthen this premier cultur-
al institution of Jacksonville.

Thankful to have met caring, helpful Saildr


To the editor:
On Thanksgiving morning,
Thursday 2007, I was taking
my regular sunrise walk on the
beach. I have walked about a
mile a day for 23 years now.
Being as I am in my 80's I take
along a walking stool so that I
can rest afterward. This day I
received a call on my cell and
as I was sitting there I pulled it
out of my pocket and
unknown to me, my drivers
license and credit card fell out.
I went home and while sit-
ting at the .table with the
morning paper and a cup of
coffee, the doorbell rang.
There was a young gentleman


'7.~_,'
/r
/ A, /-;. , cr ..


.: .r.. .:.- ... /


holding my cards. He told me
he and some friends had been
taking a walk on the beach
prior to going to breakfast
when they found them. I
invited him and his friends in
for coffee, but he said "no
thanks, we'll be going." He did
not tell me who he was but
said he was stationed at
Mayport Navel Station Helo
Squadron. In my excitement
of having my cards returned I
failed to get his name or the
squadron he was attached to.
I hope this letter will get to
his attention and he will con-
tact me. I wish to share it with
his division officer. Being a


retired USN Officer, I recognize
a true, sincere and caring
Sailor when I come into con-
tact with one. Having this
young man serving our coun-
try meets my opinion of an
upright sailor of the highest
degree.
His actions in driving
around to locate me to return
my cards was the act of a fine
gentleman and one we should
be proud of.
It makes me proud to share
this information on
Thanksgiving Day. Yes, I am
very thankful.

Do we need


$8 million


in parking?

In all of northeast
Florida,
lax Beach has the high-
est rate of crime.
But when it comes to
hiring more police
The City doesn't have a
dime.

f you thought $130,000
for a Tide Clock was irre-
sponsible considering
our budget problems, what.
do you think of $8,000,000
for more surface parking
lots downtown? Of course a
tide clock is fine if you can
afford it, but according to
the experts, abundant sur-
face parking is one of the
biggest problems we have
downtown.
The EPA publication
Parking Spaces/Community
Places: Finding the Balance
through Smart. Growth
Solutions states:. "Parking
garages are more costly ...
than surface parking lots,
but can be desirable in
urban locations seeking to
create a more walkable envi-
ronment."
.During the visioning
walkthrough of downtown
last spring, Dan Burton of
Walkable Communities told
the City that our large sur-
face -parkirtg' l'pts were' bad:
S'He r recommended the' City
read "The High Cost of Free
Parking" by Donald C.
Shoup, a Yale-trained econ-
ornist and UCLA planning
professor. (I wonder if they
purchased it? It costs about
$75 and we do have a budg-
et problem.)
In their business plan
from August, the police said
"easy accessibility and sub-
stantial free parking...
makes it difficult for the
Police Department to keep
citizens safe, especially on
weekends and holidays
when the city is overflow-
ing with visitors." This sum-
mer, the cops had their
hands full with the large
gun-toting crowd of young
punks congregating at
Lathum Plaza and adjoining
parking lot Sunday nights.
They have difficulty con-
trolling the pier parking lot
which is often out-of-con-
trol, taken over by the
homeless, gangs and thugs.
In the Glatting Jackson
vision plan approved by the
Council, three of the four
City surface lots are recom-
mended for redevelopment
as mixed-use parking struc-
tures.
So after all this evidence
from experts that surface
parking is bad for
Downtown what does the
council do? Vote unani-
mously to spend $8,000,000
for more surface parking of
course! Since our lots are
virtually empty 80% of the
time, who is this additional
parking for?

PVCA seeks solution to boulevard parking


FROM STAFF
The larger sizes of new homes
being built along Ponte Vedra
Boulevard are forcing construc-
tion workers to park illegally on
the sidewalk, according to Ponte
Vedra Community Association
(PVCA) directors.
During a meeting on
Monday, PVCA directors unani-
mously approved a motion to
contact county officials about
the issue.
Directors say builders are tear-
ing down 3,000- to 4,000 -
square-foot homes along the
boulevard and constructing





OH,

CHRISTMAS

TREE

Kevin Varnadoe (right), manager
of the Severt's tree lot in Ponte
Vedra Beach, marks a 12-foot
Fraser fir at $345 Wednesday.
He said prices range to the high
$300s from $20 for table-top
trees, such as those (below)
viewed by Monika McBeth from
St. Augustine with the help of
Adam Graham, who works for
Severt's. The lot, on'e of four the
company has in the Jacksonville
area, sells Fraser fir, Douglas fir,
blue spruce and Scotch pine
trees from North Carolina.


10,000-square-foot homes in
the same lot area.
The resulting lack of space
means construction workers
must park on the sidewalk, they
said. Sometimes the parked
vehicles hang partly in the
street, stalling traffic on the
road.
"They have so many cars. You
have to stop two or three times
along Ponte Vedra Boulevard
because cars are out in the
street," Jack Palmer, president of
the PVCA, said Tuesday during a
telephone interview.
He added that the cars pose a


safety risk to everyone who uses
the road.
"It has caused a traffic hazard
not only to people and cars, but
also to joggers and cyclists,"
Palmer said.
Another suggestion was to
have workers park away from
the construction site and get a
shuttle to and from the site.
In another possible solution,
PVCA directors would ask coun-
ty commissioners to make park-
ing accommodations for con-
struction crews a requirement
for those applying for a building
permit.


"When you do it up front as
part of the permitting process,
you eliminate part of the prob-
lem," Doug Crane, a PVCA
member and Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
trustee, said during the meeting.
The PVCA plans to contact
Commissioner Tom Manuel and
other county officials to develop
a solution.
Palmer said he will give an
update of the issue and discuss
any progress made at the PVCA's
next meeting, scheduled 5 p.m.
Dec. 17 at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.

No vaccine

for Polio in

late 1930s

A familiar advertise-
ment inquires, "Got
milk?"
In effect, a Maryland
court recently asked,
:"Got shots?"
An Associated Press
-release datelined Nov. 17
at Upper Marlboro,
Maryland, began,
"Hundreds of grumbling
parents facing a threat of
Jail lined up at a court-
liouse Saturday to either
prove that their school-
,ge kids already had their
required vaccinations or
see that the youngsters
submitted to the needle."
More than 2,000 appar-
ently hadn't.
One of the childhood
illnesses that they (and
,our children) must,
unless exempt, be immu-
nized against is polio.
The controversy
recalled a sad situation
from my own youth, one
that might have been-
avoided by a polio shot.
It happened in the late
1930s,.lflg :before fdevel-
opment of the miraculous
Salk polio vaccine.
: Frustrated by the lack
of a baseball program at
my New Jersey elemen-
-.tary school, I started
organizing a sand lot
team.
When the other boys
and I practiced in a
church yard near my
house, a forlorn-looking
kid hung around watch-
ing us. He had a baseball,
glove and, I noticed, a
pronounced limp.
Curious, I invited him,
Joe (not his real name),
to join in our workout.
He nodded enthusiastical-
ly and started playing
catch with us.
Although he could
catch and throw fairly
well, it was obvious that
he couldn't run fast. I
asked him why, and he
pointed to his right leg.
It was thinner than the
left one. He said, "I got
sick and my leg got like
this."
I found out later that
he had suffered what was
then called infantile
paralysis, which we now
refer to as polio.
Realizing he couldn't
perform adequately at
one of the other fielding
positions that required
being fleet afoot, I had
him play first base.
There, the main function
.is to be at the bag to take
the throw from another
infielder, putting out the
batter who hit a
grounder.
He did a pretty good
job, but the second base-
man had to extend his
coverage area farther to,
his left than normal, to
make up for what Joe
couldn't cover. At bat, Joe
could hit well.
However, I had to have
another player run for
him in games, including
from home plate, if the
other team didn't object.
They hardly ever did,
since I was generally
iore persuasive (i.e., big-
ger) than they were.
: Joe and I became good
friends, and I admired his
spirit.
: No doubt his handicap
would today be a positive
motivation for those
Maryland parents who
groused about 'having
their kids get the shots.


TEACHER OF THE YEAR


Andrews always




pictured herself




teaching at FHS


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
"Even Einstein asked ques-
tions," reads a poster hanging
in Christine Andrews' class-
room at Fletcher High School.
Andrews tries to take the
intimidation out of learning
Advanced Placement Calculus
and AP Statistics.
"I try to make it fun because
I want them to have at least
half as much passion for math
as I do," said Andrews, who is
in her sixth year teaching at
Fletcher, where she was
recently voted teacher of the
year.
"The subject matter itself is
intimidating enough. They
don't need a teacher who is
going to be intimidating."
"When I first sat in her class
last year I came out thinking,
wow, if I had been in her class
in high school I might have a
better handle on math," said
Fletcher High principal Dane
Gilbert. ,
"She makes it so under-
standable the way she breaks
down the problems. She
;i- alikks :sire :r Isti WM.tit'
understand the work before
they leave class that day. It's
not just throwing out materi-
al. She makes sure they get it.".
And the proof is in the
scores.
Students from Andrews
class are among the top scor-
ers in AP Calculus and AP
Statistics in the state.
Andrews starting teaching
statistics for the first time last
year and all of her students
passed the state AP exam. The
calculus results have been
near 100 percent every year.
Many of Andrews students go
on to become math or engi-
neering majors in college.
Andrews graduated from.
Fletcher High in 1998, where
she won every math .award
possible.
Ironically, her major in col-

lege was not math, but ele-
mentary education. Andrews
said she was planning on
teaching at the grade school
level before a week of substi-
tute teaching at Fletcher
changed her,mind.
"I was subbing for the calcu-
lus teacher and I missed the
math," Andrews said.
"It brought back that side of
me. I missed working out the
challenging problems.. I'm a


math and physics person. If I
wasn't a teacher, I'd be build-
ing roller coasters."
Andrews also coaches the

Christine Andrews graduated summa cum laude from the University of North Florida. She has been teaching Advanced Placement
math courses for the past six years.



Andrews: Teaches Advanced Placement courses


Cont. from A-8
North Florida.
i A summa cum laude gradu-
ate of UNF in 2002, Andrews is
certified to teach math at all
grade levels.
!"I try to bring the warm
fuzzies of having an elemen-
tary background into the class-
room," she said.
; "You may see me doing a tap
dance to get their attention or
Ill put stickers on their tests to
show them I'm interested in


them learning."
Andrews and her husband,
Steve, have an 18-month-old
son, Zachary, which keeps her
busy when she's not teaching
and coaching. Their daughter,
Hope, died the day she was
born on April 1, 2004.
Hope had anecephaly, a neu-
ral tube disorder in which her
brain never developed.
Andrews was induced at five
months pregnant.
"We don't know why but


possibly folic acid could help
prevent it [anecephaly],".
Andrews said.
"My students kpew what
happened and I was back to
work within a week. I think it
helped me get through it."
When Andrews first
returned to Fletcher High, she
felt right at home.
Her grandparents, Maureen
and Hollis Balentine, are
Fletcher grads as are her par-
ents, Allen and Susan


Solomon, who both graduated
in 1977. Andrews grew up in
Jacksonville Beach and always
pictured herself returning to
the Beaches.
"I always wanted to be a'
teacher and I always saw
myself here," Andrews said.
"I think having good teach-
ers and good experiences in
school myself makes me want
to share those same experi-
ences."

Breathe life into your events

and meetings at HQ Connect


With the New Year
approaching, a host of
business and profession-
al types will be looking
for ways to breathe ener-
gy and creativity into
that staple of the work-
ing world meetings!
OK, those are words that
don't come immediately
to mind when you think
about meetings but
that's about to change.
HQ Connect, a new
business based in
Jacksonville, has intro-
duced a fresh concept in
meeting and conference
facilities, one that puts
events and business
meetings in a whole
new light.
HQ Connect is a new
design in meeting facili-
ty; ideal for hosting a

variety of events and meetings board meet-
ings, planning sessions, training classes, team
building exercises,, conferences & seminars,
sales events, meetings with clients or
prospects, parties, you name it. HQ Connect
spokesperson, Andrea Splan, describes the
facility as, "a distinctive environment
designed to simultaneously relax the senses
and focus the mind. The result is a sustained
energy level that ignites creativity and fuels
the collaborative effort." Andrea and her hus-
band developed the idea, drawing from the
advice of psychologists and a team of premier
designers to create the type of space they envi-
sioned a space that will drive more effective
team interaction and boost productivity.
In a quick tour of HQ Connect's flagship
location, you'll find a distinct setting. The
rooms are comfortable and spacious, with ele-
gant furnishings and original art that high-
light the carefully selected color scheme in
each meeting area. The look is rich and stylish,
and even a bit playful, but without being the
focus of attention. The furniture can be
arranged to suit any manner of meeting or
event, and each room has zoned and variable
lighting systems to customize the atmosphere
to the situation or task at hand. "Gone is the
stark room with uncomfortable chairs lined up
theater style with lighting that never seems

to be quite right," says Andrea.
"But atmosphere is just one aspect," contin-
ues Andrea, "people come here to work. We
incorporate large flat screen video monitors,
wi-fi connections, a stereo and iPod, office
supplies, and a stock of snacks and.refresh-
ments. We make sure you spend your time
doing things that matter to you, not tending
to administrative tasks. Everything you need is
right here ... from technology to markers to
coffee."
As the HQ Connect website suggests, it is a
place to not only imagine the possibilities, but
turn them into a reality. As Andrea makes
clear, "People enjoy being here, enjoy working
here, and enjoy getting things done. It is
amazing what you can accomplish with the
right focus and this is the place to do it." To
make life simple, HQ Connect has adopted a
simplified pricing structure, with rates that
include everything except meals. Repeat cus-
tomers benefit from loyalty programs, and
their affiliate plan makes it easy to benefit
from referrals.
HQ Connect is conveniently located on St.
Johns Bluff Road, with easy access to the
Beaches, hotels, and entertainment. To learn
more about HQ Connect on your own, visit
their web site at www.HQConnect.net or call
Andrea directly at (904) 996-8290.

Panthers take aim at unbeaten Seabreeze


Nease's stellar defense

shuts out Columbia for

a second time this year


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Any of the eight remaining
teams in the Class 4A football
playoffs could possibly claim
the 2007 state title.
In reality, only two will play
for the 4A championship on
Saturday, Dec. 15, at the
Orlando Citrus Bowl.
Coaches treading deep into
the playoffs this time of year
understand that each step they
take in the minefield could be


their last.

Nease's road to the 4A title
game is equally formidable.
The Panthers (25-2 since 2005)
travel to Daytona Friday for a
rematch with unbeaten
Seabreeze, whose last loss was
to Nease in the 2006 regional
finals.
"We're going from alpha to

yard touchdown scamper.
Houston had 81 all-purpose
yards in the 24-14 Nease tri-
umph.
"Dannehower and Houston
can run the football. We have
to come up with a plan to con-
tain them," Cowgill said.
Nease had no trouble stop-
ping the run against Lake City.
The Panthers held star full-
back Tiger Powell (1,393 rush-
ing yards, 17 TDs) to 65 yards
on 13 carries, Powell, who left
the game with an ankle injury
with six minutes remaining in
the third quarter, had
Columbia's longest gains on
outside runs of 20 and 24
yards.
The Tigers, who lost to
Nease 28-0 earlier in the sea-
son, never got closer than the
Panthers' 17-yard line.
"We couldn't block those
suckers," said Columbia head
coach Danny Green after the
game.
"We knew we had to use dif-
ferent formations, but after
Powell got hurt that took a big
threat away. I thought we
competed a lot harder than we
did the last time. Not being
able to get points really kills
you."
Nease broke open a scoreless
game with 46 seconds remain-
ing in the first half on a 2-yard
Ted Stachitas run.
The 55-yard drive was set up
by a 17-yard wide receiver
sweep by Patrick Barker and a
22-yard swing pass to Andrew
Barnes.
Barker took a screen pass 38
yards to key a 70-yard scoring
drive in the fourth quarter,
capped by a 30-yard quarter-
back trap by Stachitas (74
rushing yards, 9 of 17 passing).
Graham Bates tacked on a
28-yard TD run with 2:54 to
play. Jared MacNaught, Ty
Carzoli arid Hunter Bates had
interceptions.
Nease had trouble picking
up Columbia's pass rush in the
first half. Howard went to a


five-wide, empty backfield
alignment in the second half
to mitigate the rush and open
up the middle of the field.
"They gave us a lot more
blitz than the last time," said
Howard, whose team amassed
146 yards on the ground and
112 through the air.
"We got in the five-wide
because Ted usually makes
great decisions and somebody
is going to be left uncovered.
The defense was awesome
again. We have shut Lake City
out for 12 straight quarters."
Hunter Bates and Brett Russi
hooked up for a 2-point con-
version pass in the third quar-
ter out of Nease's super power
offense.
Columbia's best chance at a
score came midway through
the third, when linebacker
Chris Martinez returned a
muffed punt 40 yards to pay-
dirt.
The TD was brought back
because the kicking team can
only recover, not advance a
muffed punt.
Had they scored, the Tigers
would have taken a 7-6 lead
and the momentum.
"I was pleased where we
were at halftime," said Green,
who returns 14 sophomores
with playoff experience,
including Powell and two
/other running backs.
"We'll see what [Nease]
shows up with next year."
Howard was just glad that a
pair of special teams miscues
didn't factor into the out-
come.
Any wrong moves in the
minefield are fatal this time of
the year.
"We left the door open
there when we missed that
first PAT," said Howard.
"I could see a Tiger Powell
run coming back to haunt us.
And that missed punt almost
put us in a precarious situa-
tion.
"Boy, one play can make the
difference."

Tebow may have secured the



Heisman with win over FSU


If the credentials of Tim
Tebow weren't sufficient to
win the Heisman Trophy
already, last Saturday's perfor-
mance against Florida State
should cinch it.
If there is a candidate in the
country with better credentials,
he's a miracle man. Make that a
bigger Miracle Man than the
Gators quarterback. Tebow, the
pride of Nease High, played the
second half of Florida's 45-12
victory with a broken hand it
was revealed afterward.
While it wasn't his throwing
hand, the pain must have been
enough to distract the left-han-
der.
Yet, Tebow calmly completed
19 of 28 passes for 262 yards
and three touchdowns while
rushing for 89 yards and two
more scores against the
Seminoles.
Bobby Bowden may now
want his quarterback to play
with a broken hand.
Last Saturday's blowout
should tie it up. Heisman voters
are impressed by out of the
ordinary performances by lead-
ing candidates.
Tebow has been compared to
Steve Spurrier, the Gators quar-
terback who won college foot-
ball's most coveted individual
honor in 1966. Spurrier was
outstanding all season and, but
for an upset by Georgia, would
have led his Florida team to its
first Southeastern Conference
championship.
But it took a single play,
many voters later said,-to cinch
Spurrier's Heisman try. When
he kicked a field goal to beat
Auburn on Florida Field, that
did it. Steve had never before
kicked a three-pointer.
Tebow has been racking up
amazing stats all season and
though just a sophomore, has
been clearly out in front of
other QBs as a combination
passer and runner.
In beating Florida State,
Tebow notched his 13th con-


,

secutive game with a rushing
TD. His second trip to the end
zone on the ground against the
Seminoles gave him 22 rushing
touchdowns this season, an
NCAA record for a quarterback.
The broken hand was
Tebow's second serious injury
this season. He hurt his right
shoulder against Kentucky on
Oct. 20, which limited the
southpaw's effectiveness in a
42-20 loss to Georgia a week
later at Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium.
Tebow's freshman season was
no less amazing, but few
expected him to be a Heisman
candidate before his junior or
senior year. What outsiders did-
n't know or consider was the
former Nease Panther was a
phenom in high school as well,
re-writing the FHSAA record
book as a dual-threat signal-
caller. This is a born Heisman
Winner.

Defense, kicking game
key Jaguars win
If Jaguar fans thought their
heroes would have to go some
to beat the winning perfor-
mances against Tennessee and
San Diego, they got their wish-
es Sunday when the hometown
team outlasted, out-played and
out-kicked the Buffalo Bills, 36-
14.


It couldn't have been neater.
Sparked by the steady, smart
play of'quarterback David
Garrard, and especially the leg
ofJosh Scobee, who merely
booted five field goals, the
Jaguars got ready for their
supreme test next Sunday up in
Indianapolis with the awesome
Colts.
Jack Del Rio's troops led from
the start after old faithful Fred
Taylor ripped off as pretty a 50-
yard touchdown run as has
been seen in some time. And
the Jags followed that up with
an extra point and 46-yard field'
goal by Scobee-Doo. The kicker
has gotten as good as his prede-
cessor, Mike Hollis, who is one
of the all-time point leaders in
Jacksonville history.
But the defense was no less
outstanding. That unit stopped
the Bills time after time.
Holding Buffalo to five yards
rushing and 14 yards passing,
Jacksonville's defense was terrif-
ic.
The big play that cinched it,
as the Bills kept tailgating
them, came in the fourth quar-
ter when Garrard found Reggie
Williams for a 59-yard TD pass
that stunned the enemy.
Buffalo was still dazed when
Maurice Jones-Drew scampered
into the end zone to the
amazement of all with a 17-
yard score with 1:43 left in the
contest.
That was one of the most
startling of all Jaguars scores.
Although the game wasn't on
local television due to lack of
ticket sales, some 64,546
diehard fans still turned out
and got their money's worth.
Fans who don't support these
Jaguars now don't know what
they're missing.
No matter what the Fighting
Del Rio's do up in Indy on
Sunday, this team seems des-
tined for the playoffs for a
change. What a difference it's
made with Garrard doing the
quarterbacking. And Scobee
back to kick.

Jaguars roll over Bills to continue win streak


Photos by Rob DeAngelo

T he Jacksonville Jaguars are now eyeing an AFC playoff spot
following Sunday's 36-14 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
With the win, the Jaguars improved to 8-3 on the season
and head to Indianapolis on Sunday to take on the AFC South
leading Colts.
LEFT: Running back Fred Taylor (28) steps through the tackle
of Buffalo linebacker John DiGiorgio during first-quarter action
Sunday at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
BELOW MIDDLE: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis, right,
looks for extra yardage after catching a third-quarter pass.
BOTTOM: Quarterback David Garrard (9) fires a pass during
Sunday's game. Garrard completed 23 of 37 passes for a
career-high 296 yards in the victory over the Bills.
