Mayport Road cleanup


may mean more police


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A second officer for the crime suppression unit
in Atlantic Beach may be hired with money from
a grant to reduce crime on Mayport Road,
according to city officials.
Because cleaning up Mayport Road has been a
priority, city staff have suggested that communi-
ty development grant funds be utilized to help
with the effort.
In the past, the funds have typically been used
for minor infrastructure projects, but staff has
suggested taking a new approach this year,
according to Community Development Director
Sonya Doerr said.
She told the Commission at a meeting
Monday that although previous projects have
been beneficial, using the funds towards policing
could benefit a greater area of the community.


"Police activity is an entire category to use
community development block grant funds for,"
she said.
Staff anticipates the city will receive between
approximately $100,000 and $200,000 which
would pay for a second crime suppression officer
position, according to Police Chief David
Thompson.
Public Safety officials have been coordinating
over the past several months to consider new
approaches to tackle issues along Mayport Road
such as crime, prostitution and deteriorated
housing, Doerr said.
Thompson added that the public safety depart-
ment will discuss other strategies to combat the
issues at the city's strategic planning meetings.
The meetings will be held Feb. 27 and Feb. 28
from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Adele Grage Cultural
Center, 716 Ocean Blvd.

FROM STAFF
A proposed billiard club is
prompting the Atlantic
Beach City Commission to
take a trip downtown.
The proposed bar falls into
Jacksonville's jurisdiction
along Mayport Road, and the
applicant is requesting a
waiver to reduce the proxim-
ity to Mayport Middle
School, according to
Jacksonville Planner Andy
FIetzel.
"We're trying to clean up


Mayport Road and that's cer-
tainly taking a step in the
wrong direction," said Mayor
John Meserve, who brought
the issue up at Monday's
meeting.
Hetzel said that the city
has received calls from con-
cerned citizens questioning
the type of bar, but he said it
is the city's understanding
that it is a "bar with pool
tables."
The applicant is requesting
to waive the minimum


required distance from a
church or school from 1,500
feet to 1,180 feet, according
to Hetzel. The club is pro-
posed to be located at 2593
Mayport Road.
Meserve said that the
Commission should attend
the Planning Commission
meeting in Jacksonville to
represent the city and express
opposition to the proposal.
The meeting will be held
on Feb. 28 at 1 p.m. at City
Hall, 117 W. Duval St.

Woods seeks options to FAR


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Developers of a vacant parcel
of land at the southeast corer
of Beach Boulevard and A1A in
Jacksonville Beach are back to
the drawing board.
A judge last week quashed
plans to construct a 50-foot
hotel on the site, ruling that the
Shivam Properties did not have
vested rights to change from a
planned office condominium to
a hotel.
"That's not what they applied
for," City Attorney Stephen
Stratford said Monday.
Circuit Court Judge Frederick
Tygart ordered Feb. 5 that
Shivam Properties is not permit-
ted to build a hotel on the site
"unless it complies with the 35-
foot height requirement."
But Tygart in his ruling said
the vested property rights only
apply to the original use which
was granted by the city's
Planning and Development
Department four years ago for
an office condominium.
"If he wishes to build a hotel,
he will become subject to the


new height requirement,"
Tygart said in his ruling. "If [the]
plaintiff wants to be excluded
from the 35-foot height require-
ment [he] is limited to building
a project that is consistent with
the project for which approval
was given."
Between April and July, 2004,
Shivam Properties purchased
several parcels in the Central
Business District (CBD) where
an apartment complex,
Mexican cantina and gas station
once stood.
The property was rezoned July
19, 2004 to Redevelopment
District zoning in the CBD for a
mixed use of office, retail and
parking with a maximum
height of 50 feet.
According to the ordinance,
the project was limited to
70,000-square-feet of profes-
sional office space and 5,300-
square-feet of retail with a total
of 254 garage parking spots.
City planners approved a site
plan in August, 2004 and issued
a building permit on Oct. 24,
2004 just days before the City
Charter was amended to limit
new projects to 35-feet.

STAFF WRITER
While a proposal to eliminate floor area ratio
will be studied by the Community
Development Board in Atlantic Beach, one
Commissioner is pushing for residents to have
more options.
Commissioner Carolyn Woods submitted a
proposal which would modify the code and
give residents the option of either using only
the FAR or following other design guidelines.
"It's a win-win situation," said Woods. "It
really is an issue of property rights and giving
people the most opportunities to use their
properties as they see fit."
Woods said her proposal is a less restrictive
approach because it gives homeowners a
choice.
Mayor John Meserve said that because the
final decision rests with the Commission, the
community development board could study
Woods' proposal.
However, the Commission did not reach a

consensus to move the proposal forward.
Some commissioners thought Woods pro-
posal was a good concept, but did not want to
stir up previous problems between property
rights advocates and those who want to pre-
serve the city.
"I think the majority makes sense, but I
think there are a lot of issues that would bring
out some bad blood again," said Commissioner
Paul Parsons.
Commissioner John Fletcher suggested that
the concept be brought back up for further
study at another time, but still move forward
with the proposal to eliminate FAR.
Woods was bothered by the the
Commission's response, saying "the take home
message I'm getting is let's take away their right
to build something because it's bothersome to
us."
Woods has discussed the proposal at two
consecutive meetings.
FAR is a provision in the building code that
currently limits the size of a building in ratio to
the lot size.

'Cradle-to-grave' marketing



Author warns of TV's impact on kids


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
If your toddler recognizes
"Elmo" or "Dora," he or she
may be caught in the "cradle
to grave" marketing frenzy
that teaches lifelong con-
sumerism, according to
author Susan G. Thomas.
Some parents of young
children, believing they are
giving their charges a jump-
start on learning, may actu-
ally be exposing them to
harm, said Thomas, who is
bringing her message to
Ponte Vedra Beach next
week.
A New Yorker, former
investigative journalist and
mother of a 4-year-old and
one who is "almost 7,"
Thomas is scheduled to
speak to adults at 7 p.m.
Tuesday and to adults and
children atlO a.m. Feb. 20 at
the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library. Both sessions
are free and open to the pub-
lic.
Her message of caution to
parents is spelled out in her
book, "Buy, Buy Baby," pub-
lished in May by Houghton
Mifflin.
Arising from her years as a
journalist, the book talks
about a "whole new indus-
try" that developed after a
1997 White House brain con-
ference, when experts dis-
cussed the importance of the
first three years of life,
Thomas said Monday in a
telephone interview.
From the conference, par-
ents took away the message


of "If I don't stimulate my
baby in the right way before
she turns 3, the door to
learning will close forever,"
according to press literature
about Thomas' book.
And from that parental
fear, some toy and entertain-
ment interests "began selling
the idea that with the right
'stimulation' from a toy, a
video, or some other 'learn-
ing' product, one's infant or
toddler can be made
smarter," the literature
explains.
By 2002, about 90 percent
"of children under the age of
3 watched a huge amount of
television every day, and the
parents believed the shows
had something that would
make their children intellec-
tually capable," Thomas said
in the interview.
But there was "nothing
undergirding" that notion,
she said.
On the contrary, what lit-
tle legitimate research is
done on the subject indicates
that "babies and toddlers
understand virtually nothing
of what TV programs and
videos aim to teach them,"
the literature says.
They do learn how to "rec-
ognize the main characters,"
Thomas said. The child then
recognizes the character's
face on a toy, and the
"American toy box is domi-
nated by licensed toys," she
said.
Placing a baby in front of a
TV may give a parent a few
moments of freedom, and
parents may think that the


child loves watching the
images because "she can't
keep her eyes off it," Thomas
said.
But the baby actually may
be "caught in an orienting
reflex loop," the author said,
explaining the concept as
follows: The orienting reflex
is an adult's "startle
response." For example,
when an adult hears a siren
or sees a flash of light, the
brain immediately works to
make sense of the noise or
sight. But the brain of a baby
is not developed enough to
make those connections.
"Television of any kind ...
is so stimulating and so con-
founding to an early devel-
oping brain that it triggers
the orienting reflex," Thomas
said.
"So babies' brains startle,
they try to figure out what
they're seeing, and then it
[the TV image] changes, and
they startle again," she said.
"And they can't look away
from it."
One occupational therapist
from an Ivy League hospital
contends "that this amount-
ed to a low-level seizure
state," Thomas said.
"If you have a baby
strapped in front of the tele-
vision . they're captive,"
she said.
Instead of relying on the
television to occupy your
child while you cook dinner,
for example, a parent could
"put [the child] ... on the
floor [and] give them a
spoon and a pot," Thomas
said.

Susan Gregory Thomas, author of "Buy, Buy Baby," will speak
Tuesday and Feb. 20 at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.


"We have to learn how to
cope with boring times," the
author said, adding, "And a
baby doesn't think making
dinner is as boring as you
do."
Thomas said she was invit-
ed to speak in Ponte Vedra
Beach by a friend, Camile
Cline, who is a board mem-
ber for the Ponte Vedra
Friends of the Library.


Although it is "flattering"
to be interviewed by Katie
Couric and other national
media personalities and jour-
nalists as she has since the
book was published.- "my
favorite favorite thing is just
talking with parents and
[other] people about this,"
Thomas said. "So this, to me,
is the perfect venue."

7 people rescued from

sinking boat off Mayport


FROM STAFF
Seven people were rescued
Sunday several miles off the
coast of Mayport after their
boat began sinking in the St.
Johns River, according to U.S.
Coast Guard officials.
The group was traveling in a
37-foot pleasure craft named
"Five Points Major" approxi-
mately 18 nautical miles east of
the St. Johns River when it
began taking on water in the
engine room, according to
Coast Guard Lt. j.g. Adolfo
Viezca.
The Coast Guard received a
distress call at approximately
1:15 p.m. that 'the boat was
"going down", Viezca said.
The Coast Guard sent out an
"urgent marine broadcast" for
anyone in the area who could


help assist, Viezca said.
Another boat responded to
the call and went to the scene.
Four of the crew members
were transferred onto the
"good samaritan" boat and the
other three were transferred
onto a Coast Guard boat,
Viezca said.
A broken rudder caused a
hole in the bottom of the boat,
according to Kim Haas, one of
the owners of the Jacksonville
Branch of Sea Tow Services.
Two captains with Sea Tow
also responded and installed
three pumps, which reduced
the flooding and allowed the
boat to continue operating,
Haas said.
Sea Tow hauled the boat to
the St. Johns Boat Company,
according to Haas.


building, they had a vested
right to develop the property
to its original intended height
and that they would be able to
-include the hotel use," accord-
ing to the final judgment.
In early December, 2006,
Shivam Properties began
expensing the development of
, hotel on the site, spending
139,183 to date, according to
&he court records.
An application submitted
last April to amend the RD
zoning was rejected by the
city's planning staff because it
violated the charter's height
restrictions.
Shivam Properties filed a
motion for declaratory relief.
Tygart in his ruling said he
considered the rights afforded
to both parties by the ordi-
nance and determined that the
developers did not act in good
faith with the city because the
city's planning staff never
authorized plans for a hotel.
"Any funds that the plaintiff
[Shivam Properties] expended
on the hotel portion of this
project were not done in good
faith reliance on any act or
omission of the city," Tygart
stated in his ruling.
According to the ordinance,
the project must be carried out
in accordance with the rezon-
ing application for the intend-
ed uses which includes but is
not limited to the 50-foot
building height, size of the

The defense also argued that
the rezoning ordinance allows
for any use that is permitted in
the CBD but Tygart ruled that
the ordinance expressly refers
to permitted uses "within the
first floor shopping area" pur-
suant .to the Land
Development Code.
He also notes that the prop,
erty is no longer zoned CBD
and is not subject to the 50-
foot height requirement in
that district.


"Therefore, what the ordi-
nance actually states is that the
uses within the shopping cen-
ter portion of the project could
include any. use permitted
within a CBD district except
those specifically disallowed,"
Tygart said in his ruling.
"It does not state that the
entire project can be used for
any permitted CBD use."

Too bad AB precinct mislabeled


To the editor:
The front page article in the
Feb.l, 2008 edition of the
Leader appeared to have all
that readers would need or
want: a color highlighted box
with pertinent bullets of info.,
a flag draped chart of detailed
voting by precinct and a refer-
ence to page A-3 where more
results awaited for viewing by
the interested citizenry.
Imagine my surprise when I
look at Atlantic Beach and do
not see my precinct(13S)!
Well, maybe it is on page A-3
where I am directed to "see
how your neighbors voted". I
turn to page A-3 and see an
even bigger chart, this time
broken down into political


parties. Again, my- precinct is
not there.
They say "perception is reali-
ty" and that is something the
Marsh Oaks neighborhood of
Atlantic Beach has been deal-
ing with for some years: that
this side of town doesn't mat-
ter. For those who have just
moved here, that is the section
of Atlantic Beach west of
Mayport Rd.
It would have been nice for
voters in Precinct 13S to see
their numbers right up there
on a level with the other
precincts. Too bad the article
only needed a proofreader.

To the editor:.
A sincere thank you to the-
two anonymous women who
helped an elderly man to his
feet. I fell. on Monday, Feb. 4
in the parking lot of the
Atlantic Beach Post Office on
Mayport Road. As I tried
twice to get myself up and


sitting for a few minutes as
others passed me by two very
compassionate ladies helped
my to my feet. As it turned
out I had broken my ankle
and could have caused more
damage if they hadn't have
come to my rescue. It is nice
to know there are still people


out there with a good heart
and compassion for others
and to help someone in dis-

thank you from the man you
helped.

If you missed FHS seminar, you missed out


To the editor:
On Thursday, February 7
my daughter and I attended
the Keeping Our Kids Safe
Series sponsored by the
Fletcher High PTSA. This was
the second session offered
and the topic was Safe and
Healthy Relationships. The
moderators were from the
Beaches Women's
Partnership and they pre-
sented an excellent program.


In attendance were only a
handful of parents and four
students. I was amazed at the
low turnout. We are con-
stantly remirfded to be a pos-
itive role model, involved
and communicating with
our children. There was a lot
of discussion and informa-
tion about respect, dating,
boundaries and skills for
identifying the warning
signs of unhealthy relation-


ships.
I would urge parents and
students to attend the next
sessions in March on
Internet Safety and in April
on the dangers of Addiction.
These events are free and
snacks are provided. Most
importantly, they are worth
the effort!

Gourd 'patch' keeps ancient craft alive and readies for show


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

Approaching the Short home on Ranch Road
in Palm Valley, a visitor is reminded of the days
before trees were cut down for a four-lane high-
way nearby, when County Road 210 was the
only east-west artery linking Ponte Vedra Beach
to points west.
Here on Ranch Road, a stone's throw from the
Palm Valley Golf Course, things are still quiet,
spacious, untouched.
It's like a walk back in time, a fitting setting
for an ancient craft that is kept alive by a patch
of persons who meet at this home once a
month.
They are a group of "gourders," part of a state
and national society whose members enjoy and
want to keep alive gourding as a hobby.
Members of the Northeast Florida Gourd
Patch are taking part in the annual Florida
Gourd Society Show Feb. 22 to 24 at the Palatka
Fairgrounds.
The state organization has more than 500
members; the patch that meets in Palm Valley
has 30, two of them men.
Laraine Short heads the Northeast Florida
patch that meets in her home,
Tom and Laraine Shorts' home includes two
rooms dedicated to gourds, one a workroom
where Tom does his part and the other a craft
room, where meetings are held.
The Shorts got into gourding 10 years ago
when Laraine and Tom, who's from Georgia, vis-
ited Wrens,.Ga., a big gourding area.
"We picked up some martin gourds to make
birdhouses. Martins eat mosquitoes, so they're
popular. We brought them home, cleaned them
on the driveway, got seeds all over, just swept
them off," said Laraine Short.
"Next thing I knew, I had vines growing all
over my flowerbeds, had all these gourds, didn't
know what to do with them."
Then Laraine, a longtime decorative artist,
found a painted gourd at a painting meeting.
"At that time, I did a lot of art and craft shows.
So I said, 'Well, I'm just going to paint some.'
Wound up selling every one."
Although today's gourders mostly create bird


houses or decorative pieces, gourds have been
used for musical instruments, hats, scoops or
containers for foods and liquids and other practi-
cal items.
"They would use gourds to store grain and
corn," patch member Kim Belvin of Jacksonville
explained at the patch's Jan. 26 meeting.
"They would use dipper gourds to dip grain or
water from out of the lakes," said Belvin, whose

Gourd Patch,

husband David is a
Native American.
"If they had gourds that had seeds loose in
them, they would make nice rattles for ceremoni-
al dances," she said.
"I've made a couple that I've used at cere-
monies at our pow-wows."
Carol Straus of Atlantic Beach attended the Jan.
26 meeting for the first time. Her husband gave


her a craft table and beginner's packet for
Christmas.
"We were visiting in Tucson with my hus-
band's best friend from grade school in
Pittsburgh, who has started gourds. He had
some of the most beautiful gourds I'd ever seen.
I thought, 'I'd love to learn how to do it.'"
Straus found the local gourders on the
Internet (www.flgourdsoc.org) and was wel-
comed aboard.
Whitedove Apple, a Choctaw Indian who
lives in Callahan, paid her second visit to Ponte
Vedra at the January meeting and spent time
teaching Straus how to sponge paint.
"By going up and down with the three colors
[of blue], she's blending it in so you can see the
depth of the water," Apple said. "The bottom of
the sea is real dark. As you come closer to the
surface, it's going to be lighter."
Tom Short explained how he prepares gourds
for painting, beginning with the fact gourds are
left on the vine until they turn brown.
"If you pick it while it's green, more than
likely it'll rot. Because a gourd is about 80 to 90
percent water, and that has to evaporate."
Short uses a gourd scraper, mason jar lid and
drill-propelled apparatus to remove the dried
membrane inside the gourd.
He said he knew nothing about gourds before
his wife started working with them.
"We're still learning," he said. "We try to
learn different things to teach to members of
the patch."
According to Wikipedia, an online encyclo-
.pedia, gourds are in the same plant family as
cucumbers, squash, melons and pumpkins.
The 10th annual Florida Gourd Show is
scheduled 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 22 and Feb. 23;
dinner is scheduled 6 p.m. Feb. 23, followed by
a hat and mask parade, and the Feb. 24 show is
scheduled 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
A new addition to this year's event is the.
"Iron Gourd" competition, in which contestants
each will work for six hours on a gourd creation,
with cash prizes. The competition begins at 9
a.m. Feb. 22 and Feb. 23.
Prospective members of the gourder group can
call the Shorts at 285-0646. Or, Laraine said, "Just
come by." Just like in the good old days.


Commissioner: Does PV's 210 need 4 lanes?


by KATHY HARTMAN
PONTE VEDRA LEADER EDITOR
The contentious issue of widening
County Road 210 east of the Palm
Valley bridge continued to fester last
week, when Ponte Vedra Municipal
Service District (MSD) trustees
defended their interest in the sub-
ject.
"We have the right, indeed the
duty" to weigh in on the issue,
trustee Al Hollon said at Monday's
MSD meeting.


"It does impact the citizens who
live in the MSD," said trustee Rob
Becker.
Both were responding to news
reports in which Mary Kohnke of
Palm Valley criticized MSD trustees
and board members of the Ponte
Vedra Community Association for
"sticking their nose in" the issue of
widening a section of 210 that is
miles from the boundary of the
MSD.
The widening of 210 from the
bridge east to the Mickler round-


about remains in limbo, as the
Guana preserve to the south is
unwilling to give up land for the
project, and Sawmill Lakes residents
to the north object to the road com-
ing close to their homes.
Although 210 is a hurricane evac-
uation route for Ponte Vedra Beach
residents, at least one county com-
missioner questions whether the
widening is needed.
That stretch of 210 is "not current-
ly a choke point for hurricane evac-
uation," Commissioner Cyndi


Stevenson said Thursday, reiterating
what she told trustees at Monday's
MSD meeting.
"I'm not sure about the necessity,"
she told trustees.
In a telephone interview
Thursday, Stevenson said the
Northeast Florida Regional Council,
of which she is a member, does not
consider that 210 section a choke
point for evacuation.
Her information is based on a
2005 hurricane evacuation study by
the regional council, which will be


updated in 2009.
Stevenson said roads leading into
the two-lane section of 210 can be
restricted to westbound traffic for
evacuation, if needed, noting that
the crucial area for evacuation is fur-
ther west, near Interstate 95,
Also a concern of hers, Stevenson
said, is that if the road is widened,
speeding and traffic will increase.
"If we build that road four-lane,
we'll fill it up with traffic," she said.
"But what is not clear is whether it's
needed fQr hurricane evacuation."


Evacuation

studies are

updated

FROM STAFF
The Florida Division of
Emergency Management, in
'cooperation with regional plan-
ning councils and county gov-
ernments throughout Florida, is
conducting regional evacuation
studies for the entire state.
The studies Will include
important updates to existing
hurricane evacuation studies but
will also address wildfires, fresh-
water flooding, and hazardous
material accidents. In some
counties the studies will include
evacuations that might result
from incidents at nuclear power
plants.
A critical component of the
studies will'deal with how the
public will react during regional
evacuations. Statewide 18,800
households will be contacted by
telephone and interviewed, the
largest survey of its kind ever
conducted.
Residents participating in the
survey will be asked how they
intend to respond if an evacua-
tion becomes necessary in their
community and how they have
responded in past evacuations.
They will also be asked how con-
cerned they are about hurri-
canes and other hazards and
whether there are any obstacles
that would keep them from
being able to evacuate.
. Many aspects of evacuation
plans depend on what the pub-
lic will do when a hurricane or
other hazard threatens a region.
Public safety officials said they
need to know as much as they
can about how their citizens will
respond so they can issue evacu-
ation notices effectively, provide
enough public shelter space, and
direct traffic successfully.
"It is extremely important for
residents to participate in the
survey if they are contacted by
interviewers so that information
gathered for each county will be
as accurate and representative as
possible," said Dr. Jay Baker of
Hazards Management Group,
Inc. in Tallahassee. If interview-
ers phone at an inconvenient
time, they will call back at a
'different time to accommodate
'residents. Identities of people
and households participating
in the survey will be confiden-
tial.

Mayport campus is science lab


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
Julie Ryan-Helms uses labs
and hands-on activities to
teach scientific processes at
Mayport Middle School.
She said her seventh and
eighthgrade students expe-
ierienti-ieice every day in
the cla.sroomn and on the
school's 33-acre campus off
Mayport Road.
"We can actually go out
there and look at the differ-
ent species and see how the
Ecosystem works with the
pond," said Ryan-Helms,
Mayport Middle's teacher of
the year.
"They have an apprecia-
tion of environmental issues
especially living out here at
the beach because they can
actually see how one piece
of trash really does end up
on the ocean."
Ryan-Helms is in her fifth
year of teaching science at
Mayport Middle, one of two
A-rated middle schools at
the Beaches.
The daughter of school
teachers, she'started her
career as a teacher's assistant
at Mayport Middle 13 years
ago.

Julie Ryan-Helms teaches life
science and physical science.
First certified as a special
education teacher, she has
since become certified to
teach language arts, science
and integrated studies. She
taught language arts for four
years before teaching sci-
ence.
"Life science is really my
area of interest," Ryan-
Helms said.
"I love coming here and
getting the kids involved


and excited about what's
going on."
"Ms. Ryan-Helms is excep-
tional at teaching all chil-
dren, regardless of their
learning ability, by bringing
science alive," said Mayport
Middle Principal Katrina
McCray via e-mail.
. 'She provides the students
with hands-on lessons
which stimulates their
curiosity in the scientific
process."
Ryan-Helms said the mid-
dle school curriculum is a
spiraled approach in which
students see a little bit of
everything each year.
In seventh grade there is
more concentration on life
science where students learn
about cells, plants, the envi-
ronment and water systems.
Eighth graders are focused
more on physical science
and learning about solar sys-
tems, force and motion and
genetics.
"The motto in my class is
'an education is a gift you
give yourself; how big is
your gift going to be?' "
Ryan-Helms said.
"I really push that with
them. That is their key to
anything they want to do."


Ryan-Helnms grew up at
the Beaches and is from a
family of educators. Her
father, Jim Daugherty, was a
teacher and a coach at
Fletcher High, where he
retired as an assistant princi-
pal.
SHer mom, Alice ,.,, i
Daugherty, retired ifromomJ'I
teaching special education at
Alimacani Elementary. Ryan-
Helms, husband, Trent, is a
Jacksonville Sheriff's officer.
The couple have a daughter
who is a junior at Stetson
University.
Ryan-Helms said she
enjoys working with middle
school students because she
has the opportunity to be a
positive influence.
"Their whole life is about
choices and they are at the
age now where they are real-
ly making choices that can
set the course for their
future," Ryan-Helms said.
"So I try to instill that in
them. It's not about your
teachers br your parents. It's
about you. What choices are
you going to make for your
life. By the end of the year I
can really see a change in a
lot of them. It's really neat."


Greek cuisine inspired Fisher's cooking

known locally for
antiques and estate
sales.
To her friends, however,
Fisher, a Jacksonville Beach
resident, is also known as
someone who "cooks with
an attitude."
Antiques have been a part
of Fisher's life since she was
a "reluctant teenager"
accompanying her mother
on junking trips. An early
find of an 18th century
English map inspired her
own study of antiques and
eventual career.
After owning China Cat
Antiques at the Beaches for
decades, Fisher and her hus-
band, Ray, now specialize in
estate sales.
Fisher grew up in the
Tampa/Tarpon Springs area
where fresh seafood was
plentiful and a strong Greek
influence was evident in
local cooking.
Except for a few classic
dishes, such as her mother-
in-law's pot roast, Fisher
said she rarely follows
recipes and looks for ways
to improve them.
Fisher continues to enjoy
Greek cuisine and during a
trip to Greece found the


food there to be as wonder-
ful as expected. A trip to
Venice also influenced her
interest in Northern Italian
cuisine.
The Farmer's Market on
Beaver Street in Jacksonville
and specialty stores featur-
ing curries, paprika, bay
leaves, and other spices are
sources for ingredients that
make Fisher's cooking
unique.
Her remodeled kitchen
was designed as a gathering
place for her guests.
The room combines two
of her main interests, cook-
ing and antiques. A large
antique work table and sev-
eral chairs fit into the main
kitchen area, which is also
open to the living room.
Cabinets are installed
only under the countertops
so the wall space above the
counters is available to dis-
play antique signs, sales-
men's samples, and spice

Three Fletcher High teams
participated last week in the
14th First Coas~t Regional
Envirothon, held at the
University of North Florida's
Wildlife Sanctuary.
And while the result wasn't
what the Neptune Beach
high school has come.to
expect, the level of erthusi-
asm never waned.
A Fletcher team finished
first three,years running
before placing third in last
year's Envirothon. This time
around, the Senators' squads
finished seventh, tied for
22nd and tied for 27th
among the 41 teams from 10
high schools that were com-
peting.
The Fletcher teams, each
with five members, were cap-
tained by senior Teresa
Johnson, junior Chris
Hartmann and freshman
Audis Ivanovic. On their
squads were Garrett Arban,
Cody Brechler, Divonte
Carty, Brett Caudill, Sydney

Brittany Vannelson, Bryn
Walsh, Vernon Wilcox and
Jessica Wilson.

Scattering of ashes at


ocean a fitting farewell


W ith a sometimes tur-
bulent but often
glorious ocean so
near, it wouldn't be surpris-
ing if Beaches-area residents
were more prone than usual
to have their cremated
remains dispersed in it after
death.
Recently, I learned of a
local family's experience
with so commemorating a
loved one who had passed
on.
The deceased was Ralph
Charles Steger, who died at
age 82 on Nov. 27. In a sub-
sequent letter, his son-in-law,
Robert DeSmedt of Ponte
Vedra, described the circum-
stances which led to the cer-
emonial scattering of his
father-in-law's cremains in
the Atlantic.
"Ralph," he wrote, "served
in the U.S. Navy during
W.W.II and loved the ocean.
We had suggested to the

that we would like to put his

Guests are often served
one of Fisher's many salads,
either as a main course or to
complement the meal.
She prepares Greek Salad
in the same style as it is
made in Tarpon Springs.
Potato Salad used for the
base of the salad. Shredded
lettuce and arugula are
placed on top of the potato
salad layer.
The remaining salad ingre-
dients (cooked shrimp, black
olives, tomatoes, sliced beets,
cucumbers, green pepper,
anchovy filets, and feta
cheese) add color, texture,
and flavor. These are
arranged on top and beauti-
fully "decorate" the salad,
she said.
Use plenty of oregano
along with the oil and vine-
gar that dresses the salad.
Served with bread, this
serves four as a main course,
said Fisher.
Fisher makes Avocado and
Pink Grapefruit Salad from a
family recipe. This unique
combination of sweet, mild,
and tangy ingredients makes
an excellent side dish served
with fish. Colorful slices of
pink grapefruit and avocado
are arranged on a serving
plate and topped with bright
red sliced strawberries. Just a
little mayonnaise thinned
with lime juice is drizzled on
top to finish the salad.

making this dessert for com-

water. DeSmedt added that
the family was pleased
because they knew that the
deceased would have been
happy with the arrange-
ments,
Another phase of the
preparations added appropri-
ately to the memorial.
Balloons were to be flown
at the DeSmedt seaside home
to guide the pilot to the
drop site. At a Publix super-
market to buy the balloons,
Steger's daughter, Dale
DeSmedt, mentioned the use
of them to Catherine
Nygard, a Publix employee.
The latter, a member of the
Beaches Honor Guard, rec-
ommended asking the unit
to provide one of their
much-admired services:
Military Honors for Departed
Veterans.
In his letter, Robert
DeSmedt, expressing the
family's gratitude, told how
the Honor Guard conducted
their always-poignant Last
Roll Call.
"...for Ralph Charles


Steger, gave him a gun
salute, played Taps, and cere-
monially folded the
American Flag for my
Mother-in-Law. At this time,
Bjorn made his final circle
and released a silver cloud
from his plane that slowly
drifted down into the ocean.
It was very sad but at the
same time a wonderfully
comforting scene for the
family."
Relating this reminds me
of another, prior, at-sea dis-
persion of cremains, those of
a Jacksonville Beach woman,
Anita Langham, whose sur-
viving husband is a U.S.Navy
veteran.
The ashes were taken out
to sea by a Navy ship, and as
they were solemnly deposit-
ed overboard, witnesses said,
a pair of dolphins leaped out
of the water in a kind of
Flipper-like, respectful salute.
Especially for late sailors
and people they loved, a
briny burial seems a mar-
velous way to begin that
final, eternal voyage.

Envirothon, held Feb. 7 at the University of North Florida's Wildlife Sanctuary..


Fletcher:

Cont. from A-7
this case "Recreational
Impacts upon Natural
Resources."
The team members worked
together to answer questions
prepared by resource profes-
sionals.
Both Johnson and
Hartmann said Soils was the
toughest station.
"Soils, definitely," said
Johnson. "You get a whole
soils book of all the areas in
Jacksonville. It's probably the
most hands-on."
Hartmann participated his
freshman year, took a one-
year hiatus and returned as a
junior.
"I love it. It's a break from
school. You get to get out-
side," he said of Envirothon
before underscoring what
Johnson had said about Soils.
"Definitely the Soil. There's
just a lot of information that
you need to know, and it's a
lot of technical information."
Hartmann said Wildlife
was easiest for him.
"I work with wildlife in my
job at the museum, so I just
know a lot about that."
As a freshman, Ivranovic
didn't know what to expect.
"I'm not sure," he said
before the competition
began. "I just expect it to be
fun."
As to the environment,
Ivranovic said, "I really enjoy
the environment. I've been
hiking. I've really been out
.in the environment."
Ryan Meyer, Chief Ranger
at the UNF Wildlife
Sanctuary, called the
Envirothon "an environmen-
tal competition between high
school students to get that
age of youth excited about
environmental issues."

Museum seeks public help on mystery


FROM STAFF
While looking for photographs for the
new temporary exhibit, "A Stroll Down the
Boardwalk," at the Beaches Museum and
History Center, the archivist found three
photographs with the following informa-
tion written on the back:
"The Animal Cracker Burlesque Circus,
Jacksonville Beach, Florida, August 30, 1930
Madame Currier, Promoter, Producer and
Director /Mrs. Martha P. Baton, Assistant"
After a cursory review of the museum's
collection looking for any mention of
Madame Currier, Mrs. Baton or the Animal
Cracker Burlesque circus, the archivist
decided to Google the names and came out
with some very interesting facts.
In the late 1880s, animal-shaped crackers
called "Animals" were imported from
England to the United States. It was in 1902


that animal crackers officially became
"Bamum's Animals" and evoked the familiar
circus theme of Barnum and Bailey's Circus.
On the other hand, a play called Animal
Crackers opened on Broadway on October
23, 1928 at the 44th Street Theatre. The
production starred the four Marx Brothers
and it was so successful that a movie fol-
lowed in 1930 with the principal leads
reprising their roles from the stage.
The animals in the museum photographs
are reminiscent of the early animal crackers
while the name of the circus is reminiscent
of the Marx Brothers.
Do any of these facts relate to the muse-
um's circus photos? Can you help the
museum unravel this mystery? If so, please
contact Taryn by email at archivist@bm-
hc.com or call 241-5657.

Which presidential candidate would you like to have
a beer with?
As many Florida voters cast their ballots for their
party preference, another vote was taking place, one
that has nothing to do with economic policy or views
on Iraq.
The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA)
has launched an online, non-scientific survey for drink-
ing-age persons to answer the question, "Which of the
presidential candidates would you like to have a beer
with in 2008?"
Throughout the primary season, voters of legal drink-
ing age can cast their "ballot" at www.whodoyouwant-
tohaveabeerwith.com or www.nbwa.org.
The site shows in real-time the percentage of votes
that each candidate has received, as well as video of
interviews with voters in the early primary states about
how they selected which candidates they would like to
have a brew with.
"With all of the rigors of a campaign attack ads,
phone calls, direct mail Americans know sometimes it
just comes down to who you want to have a beer with,"
said NBWA President Craig Purser.
"We hope this campaign reminds voters that at the
end of the day, while issues are very important, so is
conversation, civility and character. Having a beer with
someone represents getting to know someone better,
and that's what the campaign season is all about get-
ting to know these candidates better."
In addition to being an election year, 2008 marks the
75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition and the


dr. President?
beginning of effective, state-based alcohol regulation
under the 21st Amendment.
Today, Americans have a choice of more than 13,000
labels of beer from coast to coast distributed through a
state-based system of alcohol regulation.

Girls basketball reaches regional semi's


Fletcher off

to fast start

in softball

By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER
Fletcher High and Mother
Nature teamed to help the
Senators top Beaches rival
Nease is softball last Thursday
night.
A steady downpour proved
to be too much in a rain-short-
ened 3-1 Fletcher victory over
the Panthers.
"We played pretty well
tonight," first-year Nease head
coach Gordie Rolison said.
"We made a couple of mistakes
early then the ball got a little
wet and kind of ran around on
us."
Fletcher's Erin Schuppert had
a strong showing from the
pitcher's circle, recording five
strikeouts and allowing just
one run in her five innings.
pitched. '
The Senators got things
going early in the game when
Kelly Wilson smacked a double
in Fletcher's first at-bat and
worked around the base paths,
scoring the game's first run.
Wilson sparked the Senators'
next big inning in the third,
following Kristina Lechleiter's
leadoff double with another
double, sending Lechleiter
home. Wilson crossed the plate
again when Brooke Peaver
attempted to steal second base,
allowing enough time for
Wilson to sneak home.
The Panthers finally got
things going in the fourth,
starting with Fiorella Valcarcel's
single, setting up a string of
hits that would get Nease its
only run of the game.
Lindsay Franco's single sent
Valcarcel to second and
Morgan Graley smacked anoth-
er single, putting a runner on
third. Alyssa Pradella then
smacked a base hit, the
Panthers fourth of five consec-
utive hits in the inning, send-
ing Valcarcel home.
Ashley Ceithaml closed the
inning with a pop out, leaving
the bases loaded.
"We started seeing the ball a
little better that inning,"
Rolison said. "(Schuppert) was
throwing some pretty nasty
stuff."
Mother Nature tossed some
pretty nasty stuff, too. In the
bottom of the fifth inning,
Fletcher got things going
again, despite the strongest
downpour of the evening.
Wilson singled and moved
around the bases with help
from Samantha Meenaghan's
single,
As Wilson approached third,
she slid feet first into the base,
catching Franco's leg in the
process and opening a huge
gash in the Nease senior. After
nearly 10 minutes of attending
Franco's injury, officials decid-
ed to call the game.
"This was close enough that
it could have [gone] either
way," Rolison said.
Senators head coach
Christina Flores was disap-
pointed in her team's play
despite the win.
"I thought we had a slow
start," Flores said. "I expected .

us to get a lot more hits than
we did.
"They have a good pitcher.
She had some movement that
my girls just didn't get on yet.
We just had a slow start."
The Panthers loss follows a
season-opening win over
Flagler Palm Coast. With the
senior leadership of Franco,
Graley, Valcarcel and Clare
Wamsley, Rolison expects the
team to be competitive this
season, even in its tough dis-
trict.
"We set some high expecta-


tions for the year," Rolison
said. "We have some really
good senior leadership. We
have some great freshman and
sophomores coming up. We're
excited."
"Clay [High] is going to be a
great team and they're in our
district," Rolison added. "St.
Augustine has one girl that can
just throw the lights out. It's
going to be a ballgame when
we get over there. If we can
beat one of those teams a cou-
ple of times, we have a pretty
good shot of getting through


the district tournament and
going far.
"These seniors want to make
the playoffs and to make the
playoffs at Nease would be
huge. We have a lot of tradi-
tion at Nease right now with
football, soccer, lacrosse and
everything else and they're
challenging us and we have to
step up to that."
In assessing this year's edi-
tion of the Senators, Flores
likes her team's chances as
well. After using then-fresh-
man Katie Satterfield as pretty


much the Senatbrs only pitcher
last season, Flores welcomes
the return of Schuppert, who
missed the 2007 campaign
with a torn ACL.
Flores expects both players
to share time in the circle.
"It was a lot to ask ore pitch-
er, especially a young pitcher
like Katie, to throw a whole.
season," Flores said. "They'll
share the load this season."
Flores feels Fletcher has a
-strong squad this year that can
improve on what it accom-
plished last season.


"I think we have a really
strong team," Flores said.
"Obviously we had a really
slow start with our bats tonight
and I'm a little disappointed in
that.
"Other than that, I think
we'll be pretty strong. I think
we'll have a better record than
last season and we'll finish bet-
ter than last season."
Flores isn't sure how the
team will fare in districts this
season. Playing in the same
district as state powerhouse
Mandarin has always been
tough.
"Mandarin lost their pitcher
and catcher this season but
they have another that I
haven't seen yet," Flores said.
"And I don't know much
about Sandalwood. I have con-
fidence in my kids that we can
compete with them. I think
we'll be in the top two at least.
"If not, I will probably get
fired," she joked.
Fletcher opened the season
with an 11-0 win over
Femandina Beach.

GIRLS-BASKETBALL
Senators 45, Hawks 24
With a huge second half,
the Fletcher High girls basket-
ball team made a statement in
last Thursday night's Class 6A
regional quarterfinal over host
Spruce Creek.
Trailing 16-14 at halftime,
the Senators put together a
huge 19-point third quarter en
route to a 45-24 victory. The
win catapulted Fletcher into
last night's regional semifinal
against Gainesville.Buchholz.
Christina Perkins led the
way for Fletcher with 15
points including 10 in the sec-
ond half. Octavia Mitchell
chipped in with 12 points.
Those two Senators alone
outscored the entire Hawks
team, 27-24.
Alex Brooks added six
points for Fletcher, as did
Megan Arias. Kristin .
Hackworth chipped in with
four.
Down by a bucket after two
quarters, the Senators came
out fired up after the break,
scoring 12 unanswered points
and seizing control of the
game.
"The second half [was] a
truer definition of who we
are," Senators head coach Rich
Banks was quoted as telling
the Daytona Beach News
Journal. "We had like 14
turnovers in the second quar-
ter alone, and I'm surprised
we even scored at all with the
way we were mishandling
everything.
"That's probably my fault. I
had never been to Spruce
Creek before and I didn't want
to get lost getting to the game.
So we came pretty early. I took
the girls to the Volusia Mall
for a couple of hours, and
they enjoyed it. The only
problem was it took a half for
us to get rid of our mall legs
and put on our game legs."
Torrid shooting along with
good defense enabled Fletcher
to hold Spruce Creek to just
four points in each of the sec-
ond and third quarters.
Fletcher (18-8) traveled to
Gainesville last night to take
on the Bobcats (16-11) in the
Class 6A regional semifinals.
The winner advances to
Saturday's regional champi-
onship game.

OPINION


Every school thinks it's won on signing day


If football championships
can be won in the recruit-
ing weeks, look for the
Florida Gators, Alabama's
Crimson Tide and the Georgia
Bulldogs to battle it out next
season for all the SEC marbles
- if the exit polls can be trust-
ed.
Coach Urban Meyer thinks
his Gators are about as well off
as they've been in his years at
Gainesville. Mark Richt won'r
come right out and brag, but
his Bulldogs in Athens might
be the best in his stay there.
And Nick Saban got off to
such a fast start with the
'Bama shopping, it's a wonder
schools haven't already surren-
dered.
It's a long way until the col-
lege football season starts, but
all looks peachy right now for
the Gators to reclaim their lost
SEC crown if one can
believe what we've all been
told.
In someone who has been
described as "one of the most

dynamic playmakers" this side
of the pro ranks, Will Hill, the
New Jersey secondary hopeful,
the Gators got an early
Christmas gift. To go along
with that, Florida also signed
two other blue-chip hopefuls,
one on the defensive line and
the other a linebacker.
Even if the Orange and Blue
didn't get any runners, the
team won't lose sleep. The


defense, once awesome last
year not really, looks scary
enough now to shake even
Steve Spurrier.
The old saying, "Them that
has, gets" is as true for Georgia
as it is for Florida. Think both
teams were loaded before? As
the old comedian-singer Al
Jolson used to say, "Folks, you
ain't seen nothing' yet."
The word from Athens is
that the Dawgs have 16 four-
and five-star performers,
maybe the. deepest recruiting
class the team has had in
years. Georgia reportedly
stocked up on receivers and
running backs and coaches say
they're happy to get versatility
in their catch, in other words,
players who can go either way,
offense or defense.
That also means the incom-
ing freshmen are ready to go
right away, no need for burp-
ing or potty training. There
was only one Herschel Walker.
Alabama has been through
as many injuries and woes as
it has coaches in the 25 years


since Bear Bryant passed on.
There hasn't been another
Paul Bryant since.
The Tide now seems to be
on its way back. From the way
the media in Birmingham is
portraying it, the University of
Alabama has
never been If every
away. But like
Georgia Tech, the winn(
the Crimson
Tide are not it does, t
the old be one
champs they
used to be. football
Alabama
signed 31
players it
used to turn
down that many. The Saban
machine, rejuvenated for
2008, is considered by some to
have one of the best recruiting
classes of the year, is off to a
flying start.
Miami and Florida State are
considered winners, too, in
the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Hurricanes left South
Florida in shambles in 2007,


having a terrible season under
first year head coach Randy
Shannon. The Canes raided
the Miami area for 18 of 33
signees, but like the Crimson
Tide, they are in a desperate
state to keep what fans they

have happy.
.The days
when Miami
was a monster
of the college
gridiron are in
the distant
past but it
could change
this year -
the school
hopes.
The


Seminoles of Bobby Bowden
are even more critical. They're
not just up and down com-
pared to their glory days,
they're mostly down.
Bowden is hanging onto his
position as master of the ter-
rors and using his cane to
fight off not just alumni, but
Old Man Age as well. With the
Florida State successor already


in the wings, it's like seeing
the un-nerving future in a
gypsy's crystal ball.
Like the Jacksonville Jaguars,
the 'Noles have had so many
coaching transfusions since the
season ended, the players have
seniority. On the Seminoles
practice field, everyone is now
required to show ID and
maybe a note from home. FSU
signed what is regards as 14
key plugs for the holes it had
in the offeisve line, five in run-
ning backs and three "out-
standing" linebackers.
Uncle Bobby is so hopeful, if
there isn't room for all these
recruits in the players' dorms
they can bunk over at his
house. It's a family thing,
dadgummit.
Son Tommy Bowden bagged
heaps of talent for his
Clemson team, including ace
tailback Jamie Harper of
Trinity Christian.
If every team has the win-
ners it says it does, this should
be one heckuva football sea-
son.

FISHING




An outstanding week for party boat fishing


T-he party boat bottom
fishing was outstanding
again last week. Each trip
aboard the "Mayport Princess"
resulted in coolers and
stringers filled with up with 35
snapper and lots of grouper
weighing up to 23 pounds.
One angler had a scamp
grouper weighing 14pounds.
Mark Timmons weighed up
two big grouper and a snapper
to go with his cooler full of
beeliners. Inez Higgenbotham
cleaned a 16-pound snapper
and her daughter took pictures
of a 10-pound snapper.
Randy Carver came off the
"Princess" with a 16- and a 17-
pound grouper last Friday
afternoon and George Lackey's
catch included a pair of snap-
per, a king and lots of beelin-
ers.
Anglers on the "King
Neptune" have also been keep-
ing the cleaning table busy.
Dozens of snapper, grouper,
flounder, triggerfish, sea bass
and plenty of beeliners have
been caught on each trip.
Jetty guide Fred Morrow on
his "Little Yvonne" last

Monday with Gary and Sandy
Poletta pulled in seven
sheepshead along the rocks.
They had one that weighed
seven pounds and another
that weighed eight pounds.
On Tuesday, Capt. Fred, with
his guest Cynthia Eicher, put
live fiddlers down near the
same spot and caught 11
sheepshead including a seven
and a nine and a half pounder.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" last Thursday
with Lyndon Shultz and Mike
Brown, caught six big reds, a
sheepshead and a flounder


fishing near the end of the
south jetties.
Capt. Kevin Faver, fishing
out of St. Augustine with Jay
Reister and his son Hayden,
caught 30 reds last Friday a lit-
tle south of the Bridge of
Lions. Jigs and shrimp were
their most productive bait.
Capt. Butch Garvin and
John Campbell used small
pieces of fresh dead shrimp off
the tip of the south jetties last
Friday and caught 35 ringtails
weighing up to three pounds.
Earlier in the week, Butch and
Rusty Borthwick iced down 40
good-sized ringtails.
Jacksonville Beach Pier fish-
ing picked up considerably last
week. Lots of whiting and
some good-sized sheepshead
were pulled up from around
the pilings. Doug Akins took
home six bull whiting, James
McCall cleaned 15 big bull
whiting and Scott Jackson and
Scott McBride caught several
sheepshead weighing up to six
pounds.
Larry Finch, Bruce Boyer and
Bobby McMillian used live fid-
dlers at the jetties last
Thursday to catch 45


sheepshead. On a trip to
Titusville last Tuesday and
Wednesday, Larry caught his
limit of pompano each day.
Some weighed up to three
pounds.
Capt. Jerry Moulton, with
Bobby Grubbs and Kevin
Harris, fished from the
"Another Tangle" last Saturday
and had all the action they
could handle. They anchored
near B.R. and using Spanish
sardines for bait, easily caught
their limit of snapper.
Capt. Bear Croft and Jack
Ross on the "Bear" caught six
speedy blackfin tuna weighing
up to 25 pounds.
Willy Ulmer and his friend
Louise made the shad trip
again last weekend and caught
15 not too far from Lake
Monroe in the river. A good
day was made even better
when Louise caught a six-
pound flounder trolling a
spoon just minutes before
they ha decided to leave.
A very unusual catch for
this part of the river, of
course. At the boat ramp they
had to show the flounder
before anyone would believe

One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating, located at 1198
f Mayport Road, suite 11, is a family owned and operated busi-
. ness with a history of serving the Beaches since 1981. The
business was formerly known as Emory Instant Air and since
it's inception had one singular mission: To provide customers
with the highest quality service, however, this company has
taken their legendary service to an even higher level of serv-
ice excellence. How? One Hour Air's focus is all about "time"
and how important and valuable it is to you. While "on-time
Service" is a common phrase, it is generally not practiced.
Together, One Hour Air and every member of the team will
change this reality by dedicating their entire philosophy to
providing on-time service, or as their new mission states,
SAlways On Time ... Or You Don't Pay a Dime!"
Eddy explains, "You know how you call a HVAC technician;
then wait days, weeks, for him or her to show up?
Frustrating, isn't it? Well, we think wasting your time is a
crime. We're One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating Always
On Time ... Or You Don't Pay A Dime!' It's our way of letting
you know that we do what we say we'll do. When we say we'll
be there, we'll be there because Always On Time ... Or You
Don't Pay A Dime!'"
"WVe know when you need us," Dee says, "you really need
us. We also know your time is valuable. So if we're late for an
Appointment, your repair is free." That's a strong incentive for
the skilled professionals at One Hour Air to get it right. They
do get it right where timing is concerned, and they get it right
where the work is concerned.
"We're proud of the top-quality, professional services we
offer our customers," says Eddy. "We guarantee our work and
we are a UWIN elite service provider." UWIN is a third party
consumer agency that allows elite home service contractors
to provide an extra level of protection and peace of mind to
homeowners. UWIN's goal is 100%b Customer Satisfaction.
\When you do business with a UWIN endorsed contractor you
will have a technician working in your home who has been
drug tested, background checked, and properly trained. "Our
company agrees to the UWIN Code of Ethics and is proud to
wear the UWIN seal on the uniforms." He adds, "In addition
to our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee we're equally proud of
our Straightforward PricingT", and our on-time guarantee
Always on Time ... Or You Don't Pay a Dime!" these are
bonuses that few air conditioning contractors are able to
offer."
This quality business serves residences and businesses from
layport to Ponte Vedra and in nearby Intracoastal West. The
staff includes co-owners Eddy and Dee, and son Craig.
Technicians Joshua Davis & Brad Poursartip and our
Customer Service Representative Sharon Robinson. Sissy does
excellent duty as the company canine mascot. Dee and Eddy
have been married 40 years. With more than 40 years of com-

Dime@," the comfort specialists at One Hour Air Conditioning

Beaches customers top-notch service. Pictured above are
owners Eddy and Dee.
bined experience, they run their business with a high stan-
dard.
"A lot of you have been asking about our son land partner
in this business) and why you haven't seen him lately. Craig
is now in Kuwait serving in the Navy Reserves, and we look
forward to having him home in the spring," says dad, Eddy.
Craig is on his second deployment, having already served in
Iraq. He has made a very favorable impression with the cus-
tomers and he is looking forward to returning to serve them
again.
"Because our professional technicians are the best in the
business," Dee says, "over 98 percent of our first-time cus-
tomers become long-term repeat customers." You get nation-
al professional standards paired with local owners who care
about you and this community.
To find out why One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating is
right for you, and "to prove we are as good as we say we are,"
Dee and Eddy are offering a Precision Tune-Up a 14 point
service inspection now for just $79. "Let me share with you
what to expect during your service visit." explains Eddy,
"Because sour time is valuable, we will send a fully trained
technician to your home in a truck stocked with thousands of
parts. We even call it our "Warehouse on Vheels", which
means that the service can be done right then and there while
we are at your home. When my technician arrives it is like the
doctor coming for a \isit he will be professional, courteous,
and Always On Time ... Or You Don't Pay A Dime!",
That's right: one of One Hour Air's reliable technicians will
examine your heating and air conditioning system from top
to bottom. They will clean and adjust and identify potential
future repairs that may save you money in the future. If your
system needs to be replaced, Eddy and Dee will offer \sou their
best price for a top-quality unit.
"Consider joining the Comfort Club because every air con-
ditioner and heater needs annual service. In addition you will
enjoy Front-of-the-Line Priority Service, two tune-ups each
year and discounts on future repairs. For one low annual fee,
you can rest easy knowing that your system will be well main-
tained and if it does break down, as a Club Member, you will
receive the next 6 months membership for Free!" For now,
