opposes a

cruise ship

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
A resolution opposing a pro-
posed cruise terminal in
Mayport Fishing Village
Tuesday was passed at a
Mayport Waterfront
Partnership meeting.
The partnership previously
decided not to take a formal
position regarding a
Jacksonville Port Authority
proposal for a cruise terminal
until it heard more informa-
tion from JPA at a community
meeting held last month.
Some members of the part-
nership said they were not sat-
isfied with the community
meeting in which JPA officials
explained the proposal and
answered questions, describing
it as a "dog and pony show."
"Well, we've all had a month
to think about it and I don't
think some of us needed that
long," said partnership mem-
ber Homer Hull, who drafted
the resolution.
The resolution expresses the
partnership's opposition to the
proposed terminal as well as
any proposed future applica-
tions for a land use amend-
ment or rezoning that would
allow similar uses, according to
the resolution.
It also stated that a cruise ter-
minal is a "too intense use for
the 60 acre or less Mayport
Village and would have too
large of a negative impact to
the community's working
waterfront and residential zon-
ing districts."
Partnership member David
Fisher also explained that it is
clearly stated in the partner-
ship's mission statement to
"preserve the working water-
front."
"This is a no brainer...a sea-
port is not allowed in a work-
ing waterfront," he said.
The partnership includes rep-
resentatives from the neighbor-
hood, the city of Jacksonville
Planning office, the U.S. Navy
and the U.S. Coast Guard.

What is. the price for "purple pride?"
Jacksonville Beach officials asked the
question Monday when it approved
spending $3,000 to help send Fletcher
High School's marching band to
Washington, D.C. in July 4.
The Marching Senators band was
among 25 high school marching bands
selected nationwide to participate in the
2008 Independence Day Parade in the
nation's capital.
The City Council voted 6-1 to con-
tribute the money with the proviso that
the band perform a public concert at the
SeaWalk Pavilion at a later date.
Mayor Fland Sharp proposed the con-


cert as a way to circumvent the city allo-
cating taxpayer money for charitable con-
tributions.
"I want to buy a concert," Sharp said.
"This seems like a reasonable way to get
out of it and we have a beautiful facility if
you are game."
To "sweeten the pot," Councilman
Steve Hartkemeyer challenged each coun-
cil member to individually contribute to
the trip.
"I have already given some but I am
willing to do more," he said.
The band leaves July 1 and returns on
July 5.
Councilman Pete Mittleman cast the
opposing vote because he said tax payers
should not have to shoulder the financial

A full service post office with
carrier annex and retail facility
is still in the works for Beach
Plaza Shopping Center at 1360
Beach Boulevard in
Jacksonville Beach.
But the state transportation : -
officials caution that such '
plans may not have guaranteed '

Postal officials last week
announced that they plan to
complete the modifications
necessary to operate a full-serv-
ice post office with a carrier
annex and retail in the Beach
Plaza Shopping Center.
Public Communications
Director Bill Tyler last Tuesday
said that facilities service offi-
cers (FSO) plan to partner with
Jacksonville Beach officials and
the state Department of
Transportation to iron out any
wrinkles associated with the
building.
"Our facility service office
has completed the modifica-
tions to the plans that provide
the need to secure the letter
carrier vehicle loading and
parking," he said.
"Our FSO folks have also
advised that they will resolve
any issues relative to safety and
transportation, specifically
tractor trailer clearance needed
to maneuver the street and
loading dock area." Tyler said.

city officials are taking the steps
to repeal an exception that

The City Council Monday
voted unanimously to eliminate
the section of the special events

sales to commence into the early
morning hours.
City Manager George Forbes
said he was surprised to learn
that the standard was still in
place in Jacksonville Beach, not-

the county with such a law on
the books.
"What that says is if you can't
get a drink any where else in the
county, come to Jacksonville
Beach," Forbes said. "That is not
what we are trying to become.
We have put a lot into becoming
a family community."

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Owners of the Neptune Beach
property where a Wal-Mart was
proposed have requested that
the national retailer reconsider
its lease termination and are ask-
ing the city for a six- month per-
mit extension.
Attorney Stephen Bullock,
who represents the Lakeshore
Village property owners,
requested that the city consider
a six month extension to the
final development order which
expires in April for a proposed
Wal-Mart at 630 Atlantic
Boulevard while Lakeshore and
Wal-Mart continue discussions,
according to a Feb. 18 letter.
"Lakeshore has requested
Wal-Mart to rescind its Notice of
Termination on various legal
grounds. The request is current-
ly pending," Bullock said in the
letter.
"Wal-Mart and Lakeshore are

issues and options and hopeful-

Local girl hits the runway for the : Top 10 boatnames revealed and
T A I T A1 what they say about the owners
t T r a r_ _


C S Americas Next Top Model


Former Fletcher water girl Whitney
Thompson will be hitting the runway today for
the premiere of America's Next Top Model.
The 20-year-old daughter of Atlantic Beach
Police Chief David Thompson will be one of
several women featured in the CW reality
show which premiers at 8 p.m.
The program, hosted by former supermodel
Tyra Banks, follows a group of aspiring models


who are put through a series of challenges and
reviewed by a judging panel.
Contestants are competing for a $100,000
modeling contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics
and other prizes, according to the Web site.
The CW is broadcast on channel nine in
Jacksonville. Promotional ads touting the
show have focused on Whitney's local connec-
tions.


Boat names can reveal much about the personality,
lifestyle, passions or experiences of a boat owner. For
2007, the BoatU.S. list of Top Ten Most Popular Boat
Names is particularly revealing:
1) Black Pearl: The name of a fast, stealthy and intim-
idating fictional ship from the Disney Pirates of the
Caribbean films, a recreational boat with this moniker
was probably named by the kids.
2) Liberty: A patriotic name that first appeared on the
Top Ten List just after 9-11, the owner of this vessel is
clearly passionate about the freedoms enjoyed in the U.S.
3) Second Wind: Perhaps this boat owner has had a
life changing experience and feels that their boat now
gives them a second lease on life.
4) Amazing Grace: It could be that this boat name
borrowed from a hymn provides the boat owner with a
new spiritual outlet.
5) Aquaholic: This name illustrates a boater's chronic
love for the waterways. This boat is probably the first one
out of the slip in the morning and the last one back in at
the end of the day.
6) Knot on Call: Perhaps named by a boater in a pro-
fessional field or industry with non-traditional work
hours, this boat name affirms a desire break away from
work pressures.
7) Second Chance: See #3, Second Wind.
8) Wanderlust: Defined as "A very strong or irre-
sistible impulse to travel," this boat owner clearly has a
passion to cruise and explore the waterways.
9) The Dog House: Being in on (Dog House) isn't
necessarily bad for this boat owner as'their vessel likely
provides a "walled-off" escape away ftm the distractions
of everyday life.

10) Carpe Diem or Seas the Day: This boat owner
likely believes that .boating allows them to enjoy life at
its fullest.
The BoatU.S. Boat Graphics service offers a free library
of over 8,000 boat names and also allows boaters to eas-
ily select, custom design and preview boat names online
without having to pay up front. For more information,

If you are having trouble getting into a
rental property, a new website might have your
name.
A website has been created to help landlords'
see if a potential renter is a bad tenant.
The site, www.donotrentto.com, offers infor-
mation all posted by previous landlords, who
can post the information for free.
Accessing the information will cost land-
lords $14.99.
However, a scan of the site shows no way
that a tenant can find out what a landlord had
to say or contest it.
When posting tenant information, landlords
are allowed to enter any comments they feel
will best describe their experience with a cer-
tain renter. Members will be able to contact
other members via email to help verify certain
tenant information.

or whenever scheduled to
search for turtle tracks and
nests and maintaining data,
according to the patrol.
Walks must be completed

New


name


for an


old site

Doug Liao, parent of a
Duval County Public
Schools' student, has been
recognized for his donation
of the web domain
www.duvalschools.org,
which was launched
February 1. It replaced the
school system's former site,
www.dreamsbegin here.org,
which drew criticism from
some.
Liao secured the name pri-
vately and donated it to the
school system following
public debate about seeking
a better moniker for the web-
site.


According to the site:
Q. Is posting this type of tenant information.
legal?
A. Yes! We've verified the legality of this with
our attorney, and he informed us that this is
absolutely legal. He indicated that as long as
the information being entered by the land-
lords/property managers is truthful and correct,
then there is no problem with entering your
issues you've had with a certain tenant. That
being said, he made the point of saying, make
sure you have documentation supporting your
issues with a certain tenant.
Q. Will I be anonymous if I post tenant infor-
mation?
A. Yes, you will be anonymous. The only col-
umn that will be viewable to members is your
email address you'll enter. We have landlords
and property managers enter their email address
so that members can email each other with ques-
tions on a previous tenant, if needed.

Spring always brings its share of surpris-

landscapes, homeowners quickly discover
cleanup projects in every direction includ-

need to clear gutters of leaves and dirt,
expansion and time often loosen trays
from buildings pointing out the need for
repair or replacement in order to keep
them from overflowing onto rooftops
(where shingles may have loosened or
blown away). Outdoor drains and window
wells need to be cleared of debris and
made ready for Spring rains, also.
Inspection of the seasonal toll will need
to include wear and tear on cement,

Lawsuit

prompts

chair to

quit post at

partnership
FROM STAFF
After being informed that
the Mayport Waterfront
Partnership was being sued
over an issue regarding a pro-
posed cruise terminal, the chair
of the partnership Tuesday
resigned.
Paul Parsons, who is also an
Atlantic Beach City
Commissioner, resigned as
chair and.'a member due to a
lawsuit filed by six citizens and
members of the Mayport Civic
Association against the
Jacksonville Port Authority -
which is studying a proposal
for a cruise terminal on Ocean
Street and the city of
Jacksonville.
The partnership was includ-
ed in the lawsuit, but was dis-
missed last week, according to
Attorney Al Millar, who is rep-
resenting the civic association
and other citizens.
"If I stay any longer in this
position, I will jeopardize my
friendships and my feelings
towards Mayport," said
Parsons, who has been a mem-
ber of the partnership for six
years and chaired it for the last
year.
A "declaratory judgment" -
which can be filed before an
action is taken if there is a dis-
pute over a fact or right has
been filed and the circuit court
will then make a binding deci-
sion, Millar said.
He said that the suit was pri-
marily filed because there is
concern over whether citizens'
access rights to the working
waterfront would be infringed
upon by a seaport.
The partnership was previ-
ously included in the lawsuit
because it had not taken a for-
mal position regarding the pro-
posed terminal. Tuesday, part-
nership members adopted a
resolution against the terminal.
While some members said
that the partnership should
have taken a position sooner,
the group decided to wait until
all facts had been presented at
a community meeting in
January before making any
decisions.
. "This,stu.ff4sthld have,.en.
a no-brainer for you guys. You
should have taken a position
against it," said David Fisher,
who is now chair until a
replacement is determined.
But, some tempers flared
over the "insult" of the lawsuit
- specifically because three of
the citizens who filed the suit
are partnership board mem-
bers.
"They have very much
insulted this board," said for-
mer chair Ben Tucker.

No late last call

A-LAST CALL, from A-1
Councilor Rick Knight said he
rode along with police on patrol
last New Year's Eve and could
not believe what he saw.
"No one likes a beer better,
than me. But there is no reason
to put our policemen through
two more hours," he said.
"I was shocked at what I wit-
nessed. If you ain't had enough
to drink by 2 a.m. you sure don't
have to by 4 a.m."
Knight said most of those he
observed celebrating were filter-
ing out of the bars by 2 a.m.
anyway when establishments
must cease the sale of alcohol.
"The ones that chose to stay
out until 4 a.m. are the ones that
you don't want to stay out," he
said.
Jacksonville Beach Police
Chief Bruce Thomason pro-
posed the repeal as a matter of
public safety.
"Alcohol-related calls for serv-
ice on New Year's Eve are histor-
ically higher than normal and
those types of calls after 2 a.m.
continue at a substantially
increased rate above other times
in the year," he said in a Feb. 5
recommendation to Forbes.
"The extended hours attract
people for the intended purpose


of consuming alcohol, a situa-
tion that leads to increased
numbers of disturbances, fights
and DUIs. The best interests of
our community may be served if
the extended hours for alcohol
sales ... are repealed."
Mayor Fland Sharp said at the
first reading of the proposed
repeal he was unaware that the
standard still existed.
"This is a carry over from the
second World War when it used
to be in the summer that they
would take the doors off the
hinges and go 24-7 until
Memorial Day when everyone
would go back to Jacksonville.
When I was a kid, Jacksonville
Beach was the only place that
served alcohol on Sundays," he
said.

he said. "We want to make sure
that all of the proper work is
done in the proper sequence."
"We seem to be moving in the
right direction," Tyler said.
FDOT spokesman Mike
Goldman said any changes will
require a permitting process and


subsequent committee review
that does not necessarily guar-
antee approval.
"What they would have to do
is apply for a permit with the
state for any changes they plan
to make along [state-owned]
Beach Boulevard. We can't speak
for Penman," Goldman said.: ,
"They can't just arbitrarily do
it. They have to have permis-
sion. They would have to go
through a review process to
determine if what they want to
do is safe. We don't want to cre-
ate a problem trying to solve
another."

Funny what can happen to
a drummer when he takes 25
years off from his craft to
become a doctor and raise
three kids.
"I'm a better drummer than
I've ever been, and it's not
because I practice more," Tom
Hilton, the new drummer for
FlatBlack, said this week.
"Although my technical
skills are no better, my under-
standing of what the drum-
mer is supposed to do in a
rock band is much better,"
said Hilton, chief of cardiolo-
gy at Baptist Medical Center
Beaches and a Ponte Vedra
Beach resident.
And what is the drummer
supposed to do?
"Kind of shut up and keep
the beat," he said.
FlatBlack has taken on

members since the Palm

The others are Charles

Angers on saxophone.
When FlatBlack founder
Serena Bass, 18, asked
Freebird's booking agent
recently if the band could
open for Jonny Winter, she
got good news and bad news,
she said this week.
"Jonny Winter already had
a band," she said. But the
booking agent added, 'We
could get you in with Leon
Russell,' said Bass, who plays
lead guitar and slide guitar
and wrote a piece FlatBlack
will introduce at the Feb. 22
concert. Doors open at 8 p.m.
"It'll be cool," Bass said of
the band's gig opening for
music legend Russell, whose
career spans 50 years.
"I've never really been back
stage with a performer like
that."
Hilton said he, too, is look-
ing forward to performing
with Russell. who has "some
great style," he said.
"This is unequivocally the
zenith of my musical career,"
said Hilton, whose teenage
drum-playing was "put on
hold for about 25 years" when
he started .thinking about
medical school at age 20.
Hilton said he was asked to
join FlatBlack by bass player
Terry "Woody" Wood, whom


he knows from the musical
community.
"It's not like I have gobs of
time that I have to fill up,"
said Hilton, who has three
teenagers and volunteers for
Mission House. "But it's an
outlet that's very special."
S"It's like everything you
wanted to be as a teenager."

I The Leader's Opinion


Tax relief must


accompany any


new service fee

A fire services fee will be assessed on property own-
ers in St. Johns County, commissioners agreed
Tuesday.
The county developed the plan as part of planning
its first budget year post-Amendment 1.
County officials maintain that an assessment will
be more equitable than a property tax for fire services
because everyone would pay the same assessment
regardless of when a home was purchased.
Currently, the taxes paid by neighbors can vary
drastically because of the state's long-standing limits
on increasing taxable value on homesteaded proper-
ty.
Proponents insist the fee, levied in 90 other com-
munities statewide, is fair because anyone calling for
fire service gets the same response so, they say, it is
reasonable that all pay the same.
Equity is not the only argument put forth in favor
of the fee.
County officials said the fee will allow the county
to use bonds to buy apparatus and other materials for
firefighters, rather than relying on operating funds.
Emergency medical services and 911 emergency
response will continue to be funded by property
taxes, and no fees are proposed for either vital public
service.
Amendment 1 opponents maintained that tax relief
would be quickly replaced by a flurry of fees. We are
concerned that the fire services fee not be the first
flurry in a revenue-raising storm that will leave tax-
payers soaked. If such a fee is the best course, then
taxpayers should see attendant relief in their proper-
ty tax bill.
The county commission chairman has pledged that
the new method of paying for fire service will allow
the general fund to be reduced by the amount of the
assessment.
Following through on that promise and passing
the savings onto taxpayers- will be essential to tax-
payer support.

__ -To-the editor:
I guess the elected officials in
Duval County can't get over the
referendum which approved
the additional $25,000
Homestead Exemption.
During the last 15 years home
prices increased 12-15 percent
per year and local government
enjoyed the resulting tax bene-
fits. They were surprised when
the referendum passed by 65
percent of the voter.
We put pavers at crossings, re-
designed the 5-way intersection
Sat City Hall, purchased a clock
that doesn't work and hired a
future Police Chief 3-1/2 years
before the current Police Chief
retires.
In the February 2008 newslet-
ter, our Mayor wrote:
"Tax reform has to be taken
into account as the current
efforts by the state government
will restrict our ability to meet
the pressures of the inflation on
annual budgets. We, the
Commission, are all concerned
about the State forcing budget


cuts."
At the same time the City
Manager announced that our
building official is taking a job
in Grand Cayman.
He said, we have "several
good applications." However,
the city is working towards
finalizing a contract with a pri-
vate engineering company, to
take over until the position is
filled. He anticipates using the'
company's services for 30 to 60
days. The contract is for three
days per week for $9,000 a
month.
Nine thousand per month
divided by 12 days is $750 per
day or $93.75 per hour. In two
months that will amount to
$18,000.
If.the City Manager is right
about the "good applicants,"
then why can't we select a new
building official before Mr.
Huffstettler leaves. That could
save us $18,000.

More letters to the editor:

We can force government to be responsible


To the editor:
Floridians need tax relief! And it looks like
we might finally get it. The TBRC, which is
the Taxation and Budget Reform Commission,
meets once every 20 years. The board is able
to pick any issue they want and include it on
the 2008 Florida ballot. One of the proposals
they are considering is a Taxpayer Protection
Amendment. Last Monday a subcommittee of
the TBRC gave unanimous approval for the
Taxpayer Protection Amendment to be passed
on to the TBRC.
The Taxpayer Protection Amendment would
require that any new increase in taxes or fees
must first meet voter approval. This amend-
ment would require voter approval on all State
taxation as well as on local County and City


levels. This amendment would force our gov-
ernment to work within their own budget,
just like we have to do.
We have a unique opportunity coming up
here in Florida, especially with the TPA getting
such a great reception by the subcommittee.
Finally there is something that we can do to
force our governments to become more fiscal-
ly responsible.
If indeed this amendment is put on the
2008 ballot, all of us should vote yes! We can-
not allow our government to suck more and
more money out of Florida's economy, not to
mention our pockets, via high taxation and
spending.

Mary Agnes Gearhart, 85, of

away Wednesday, Feb. 13.
Mary Agnes was born in
Crestline, Ohio, and raised in
New Brighton, Pa., where she
met and married her husband
of 63 years, Col. James
Gearhart (Ret. USAF). As a
career military wife Mary
Agnes found herself stationed

time to raise three children,
volunteer nurse, teach school
and pick up and move every
two to four years. Upon retire-
ment in 1989, Jim and Mary
Agnes moved from the
Washington, D.C., area to
Ponte Vedra Beach, and settled
into a grand life of leisure and


travel.
Her loving heart, warm per-
sonality, wry sense of humor
and distinctive flair were
noticeable to all those who
knew and loved her. Her pas-
sion for travel, albeit late in life
and subsequent to several
health adventures, was
unmatched. Mary Agnes, after
the age of 75, traveled Europe,
Alaska, South America, The
Rockies, The Mississippi River,
and culminated in white water
rafting down the Snake River
just last summer. Mary Agnes
had a great zest for life and an
immense appreciation for its
natural beauty.
Mary Agnes is survived by
her husband Jim, sister Helen
Kline (Dutton, Ala.) children

"We have a fabulous cur-

room. The children really
seem to get turned on to
reading in the fourth grade."

After three weeks of train-
ing, the American Red Cross
Life Saving Corps' winter
recruit class has been cut in
half.
Only 17 survive from an
original class of more than
35.
A commodore has been
chosen. The wheat has been
separated from the chaff.
But the winnowing will
continue until graduation
day.
"What's your best swim
time, commodore?" assistant
instructor Demian Harris asks
Eric Bohn Sunday morning
at the University of North
Florida Aquatic Center.
"9:03, sir."
"Clarence MacDonald. Tell
me about him," lead instruc-
tor Rick Foster quizzes anoth-
er recruit.
Knowledge about the
Corps' history (Clarence
MacDonald was the first cap-
tain) is not a make-or-break
component of the 12-week
training program, which runs
Jan. 27 to April 27. But it
tells Foster and Harris who
among the recruits has done
their homework.
The stopwatch is another
indicator of who is taking
the training seriously.
"If your time slows it's
obvious you have not swum
a lick this week," Foster said
Sunday while timing recruits
in the 550-yard swim.
Recruits have until March
2 to complete the distance

mer, Kaitlyn Morris of The
Providence School, clocked
in at 8:07 without doing flip
turns. Ryan Crowley of
University Christian School
has the top time (6:28) in
the mile run.
Bohn, a UNF freshman
who played baseball for
Fletcher High last year, ran
the mile in 6:45 and swam
the 550 in 9:18 Sunday.
Recruits must be able to
run the mile in under eight
minutes. For those who can't
make certain time standards,
their days are numbered.
"You have until week six to
be under 10 minutes [for the
swim] or I will send you
home," Foster said Sunday.
"Only five of you passed
the oral exam today. Pair up
in lanes. We're going to do

stop when I'm satisfied."

Autistic kids get benefits from bowling


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
A mixed-generation league
at Beach Bowl Saturday looked
very much like any other
group of bowlers, with chil-
dren anxiously awaiting their
turns and parents offering
guidance and encouragement.
But for this group of 33,
bowling is more than a fun
activity: the children, all of
whom have autism, learn
social skills while their parents
get some camaraderie.
"It's really for the kids to
have some fun," said Mark
Skoog, organizer of the bowl-
ing league and father of an 8-
year-old, high-functioning
autistic boy, Matthew.
"It lets them know there are
things they can do," Skoog
said. "They learn structure by
having to wait turns. It teach-
es them to be part of a team. It
teaches them to be independ-
ent, and a little bit of social
interaction."
The league is funded
through Healing Every
Autistic Life (HEAL), an organ-
ization founded by Bobby and
Leslie Weed of Ponte Vedra
Beach and their autistic
daughter's doctor, Julie

Skoog's doctor, dren in any way they can,
".It's a non-profit that's especially with the social


skills," Buckley's husband,
Dean Buckley, said at
Saturday's bowling session.
"HEAL is sponsoring this
event to help the special needs
kids interact with each other
and behave as normal as possi-
ble."
A complex developmental
disability, autism typically
shows up in the first three
years of life, according to the
web site of the Autism Society
of America (www.autism-soci-
ety.org).
Adults and children with
autism "show difficulties in
verbal and non-verbal com-
munication, social interac-
tions, and leisure or play activ-
ities," the site notes, adding
that autism is known as a
"spectrum disorder" because
symptoms vary on a wide
spectrum.
Affecting one in 150 births'
in this country, autism has rio
known single cause, "but it is
generally accepted that it is
caused by abnormalities in
brain structure or function,"
the web site notes.
Although autism affects
each person differently and in

Aspiring chefs, ages 3 to
10 years old, can have
fun with food in two
classes held at the Winston
Family YMCA in Ponte
Vedra.
The Y's membership direc-
tor, Heather Parrish, who
teaches both classes and is
the mother of two children,
said that she has incorporat-
ed many ideas from her own
kids in the kitchen for the Y
classes.
Junior Chefs is held on
Tuesday afternoons for ages 6
to 10. Children ages 3 to 5
years old can participate in
Wee Chefs on Thursday
mornings. Both classes will
continue through the second
week of March.
Wee Chefs offers the
younger children an oppor-
tunity to have fun with food.
Activities from some recent
classes include cutting sand-
wiches into fun shapes and
painting bread with milk
tinted with food coloring.
Junior Chefs focuses more
on food preparation and
healthy choices. Since the
class does not have use of a
full kitchen, Parrish plans
classes around dishes that
can be prepared using an
electric skillet or other small
appliance.
Although this limits what
can be prepared, it also


means the children are learn-
ing to prepare simple foods
that they can also do at
home with parental supervi-
sion, said Parrish.
Last week for a special
Valentine's Day treat, the
Junior Chefs made and deco-
rated Strawberry Shortcakes
with fresh strawberries, pre-
made low fat sponge cakes,
frostings, and sprinkles.
In some of the previous
classes, the children have
made pancakes, pasta salad,
quesadillas, and peanut but-
ter balls.
Parrish said that she shows
the children how to make
snacks more healthful, for
example by adding a little
bran cereal to peanut butter
balls.
The Junior Chefs help to
plan future classes and some
of their suggestions have
included pizza, grilled cheese
sandwiches, and cookies.
The Winston Family YMCA
is at 170 Landrum Lane in
Ponte Vedra. For more infor-
mation about the children's
cooking classes, call 543-

he supports the band but he
had "a little heartburn" with
the city's taxpayers funding
activities for students living out-
side the Beaches city limits.
,"It's a community school but
some of the students live out-
side the beach. We are an easy
target because of our communi-
ty pride. Everyone comes to us
because we are the Beaches
community and we have a
heart," he said.
"This is hard-earned money
that our people give us but I
intend to vote in favor of it. I
just wanted you to know where
I am coming from. We are a
family group here and I don't
want anyone to miss this oppor-
tunity but I also don't want peo-
ple who don't have to pay our
higher taxes taking advantage
of us."
Fundraising chair Cindy
Bohn, whose son Andrew is a
member of the marching band,
said the funds from the
Children's Commission will
help offset the costs associated
with band members who. live
outside of the Beaches.': '

Jeffrey J. Sneed, P.A.


Continued from A-7
different degrees, early diagno-
sis is considered crucial
because of the possibly bene-
fits of early intervention,
according to the autism socie-
ty.
Skoog said his son exhibits
signs of classic autism: hand
flapping, biting and language
barriers.
Asked by a visitor about his
bowling skills, Matthew


replied; "I great."
The youngster's grandfather,
Tom Hoffman, said the "old
mindset" of locking away
autistic children is fading.
"I'm a real believer that the
more you expose the public to
what is happening, the better
it is not only for the public but
also for the kids," said
Hoffman, who with his wife
Sharon watched Matthew
bowl.


Skoog said the parents as
well as the community benefit.
"It lets them know parents
can go out and be with like-
minded people," he said, "but
it also teaches the community
we're out here . and we can
do things just like anyone else.
That's the big thing."
Buckley said, bowling has
been used as thrapy for autis-
tic children for decades.
"It's the physical and occu-


national therapy and the social
interaction, which is so miss-
ing" among autistic children,
who often are isolated from
their peers.
"That's the one component
that, as a parent, you grieve,
because they don't know how
to interact. Everything is black
and white to them. There's no
gray area.
"[Here] they root for each
other," Buckley said.

"signs" last week. Painted
white with red letters, the
plywood name tags must be
worn around a recruit's neck
whenever he or she is at the
lifeguard station.
Bohn, the commodore, or

As is customary on initia-

Island Press and Design works with

integrity and creativity to be the Beaches

own full-service printing business


It is not easy to build and
mold a business to the pro-
file \ou envisioned when
you started. It takes time
and dedication and, as
many business people rec-
ognize, a staff that is "on
board" with the ideal you
set before them. When that
ideal includes "quality,
integrity and service",. ou
have to have high standards
and firm resolve. All of this
has come to fruition at
Island Press and Design, the
Beaches full-service print-
ing company, located in
Atlantic Beach.
Owner Pat Toomey is the
first to say she has a "solid
team" who share her
mantra of quality service
performed with integrity
for each and every cus-
tomer. It didn't happen

Owner Pat Toomey wants every customer of Island Press and Design to be assured


overnight, but this estab- quality, honest service.
lished printing business is a
success story in that regard.
"We define ourselves as a truly Beaches business,"
says Pat, from the name to the priorities. "Everyone
here identifies with this community."
That team includes an experienced and exacting
press manager, Chris Hopkins, Sr. who will not accept
"almost good enough" work in the press area. "He is
quality-focused," Pat says, and "he will not deliver
the job until the work is right." For those who have
worked with this company, this is not news. Chris
has been and continues to be, as Pat calls it, "the
backbone of the business."
An exciting staff member at Island Press and Design
is Kathleen Dooley, the Graphic Designer, who
already has a reputation for bringing clients exciting
new ideas and creativity. "Kathleen can start from
scratch or from your concept and create very solid
logos and such, even building a corporate-identity
design package," Pat says. "People rave over her, and
she has a special talent for color."
Island Press and Design has built an extensive data-
base of its customers' previous printing work. This
valuable archive allows a local business person to
return to a successful idea from a preousp work, and.
repeat it, or, as she has done to great success for cus-
tomers, Kathleen can give it a cutting-edge tweak or
modernization to heighten the impact for the cus-
tomer.
There is no need to leave the Beaches community
for complete and top quality printing or related serv-
ices. When you call Island Press and Design, Tammy
Nadeau will probably be your first contact and she is
well qualified, with an MBA degree, to assist and
guide you. She understands business needs and is a
Beaches local on top of it. She may suggest an
appointment with Chris Peskar. This knowledgeable


of


representative "will come to you and show you sam-
ples, study your needs, access your printing goals."
She brings this local business even closer by meeting
in your office at your convenience, part of that "serv-
ice" goal Pat has established.
All of Pat's team are Beach folks, including the
youngest member of the team Chris Hopkins, Jr.
With an eye for color work and the youthful enthu-
siasm for technology, he is, as Pat describes, "a com-
puter whiz." If you are picking up a job from the 296
Royal Palms Drive location of Island Press and
Design, you may have met him as he carried your
order to your vehicle.
You have probably seen their work in the printed
material Island has completed for clients already ben-
efiting from a relationship with this local, full-service
print business. For example, numerous churches and
business customers here at the Beaches, the St.
Augustine Amphitheater and the St. Augustine
Lighthouse, are some of the many clients Pat is proud
to serve.
"We have built an honorable relationship with our
community and our clients. We have built partner-
ships, so that we can serve our Beaches clients, no
matter the size of.the job, quantity and such. This
has been a part of building on our goal of service and
integrity." She is rightly proud of today's Island Press
and Design, and invites new customers as well as pre-
vious customers to let her and her team prove them-
selves to you.
Located at 296 Royal Palm Drive in Atlantic Beach,
the hours are 9 to 5 Monday through Friday and the
phone number is (904) 241-7652. Call the next time
you need printing services, or want to re-examine
your corporate design.

the right to represent Duval
County in the Regional
Spelling Bee on Saturday, Feb.
23, at the Main Branch of the
Jacksonville Public Library:
The winner of the regional
bee will advance to compete
in the national spelling bee
scheduled May 28-29 in
Washington, D.C. The Duval
County Spelling Bee is con-
ducted according to the con-
test rules of the 2008 Scripps
Howard National Spelling
Bee.

On Thursday evening, Feb.
21, the Fletcher High guid-
ance department will host an
informational evening for
juniors and their parents.
This is an opportunity for
parents to receive detailed
information on what stu-
dents need to do at this point
in their junior year, what is
necessary to prepare for their
up-coming senior year, and
post-secondary planning.
The event will begin at 5:30
p.m.in the gym lobby with
visits by local colleges, tech-
nical schools, and military
recruiters.
This will be followed at 6
p.m. by a general assembly in
the school's auditorium and
break-out sessions on specific
topics.
Counselors have met with
the majority of Fletcher High
eleventh graders, individual-
ly, to discuss these topics and
their schedules for the 2008-
2009 school year.


Fletcher High School
band members, Michael
Dufresne and Cody Wheaton,
both 10th graders, Fletcher
Middle School band member,

in Public Affairs program
looks to the young women of
today for the leaders of
tomorrow.

'Face Off for a Cause' deemed a success


FROM STAFF

The lacrosse action was spir-
ited as four college teams
squared off last Saturday at
Fletcher High in an event to,
benefit servicemen and
women severely injured in the
war on terrorism.
Dubbed "Face Off for a
Cause," the event featured
men's lacrosse teams from the
University of Delaware and
the University of Maryland-
Baltimore County squaring
off, followed by a women's
game pitting Pfeiffer
University against Rollins
College.
While Delaware earned a 15-
7 victory and Pfeiffer defeated
Rollins 17-12, organizers hope
the real winner was the
Wounded Warrior Project, a
Jacksonville-based non-profit
organization that endeavors to
raise awareness for and meet
the needs of severely injured
members of the U.S. Armed
Forces.
An estimated 3,900 tickets
were sold for Saturday's event,
with about 2,200 lacrosse fans
attending the games at Jack


Taylor Stadium. All of the pro-
ceeds went to WWP.
Face Off for a Cause featured
honorary captains Charles
Hunt for the Delaware Fightin'
Blue Hens and Josh Bleill for
UMBC.
Hunt is a former Arlington-
area resident who graduated
from Sandalwood High in
1989 and joined the Army. He
was injured on Feb. 18, 2006
when a truck he was riding in
was hit by an explosive
formed projectile, resulting in
reconstructive surgery on his
left forearm and replacement
of one-third of Hunt's skull
with a prosthetic plate.
Bleill was injured in October
of 2006 while conducting
combat operations in Fallujah,
Iraq. He sustained a blast
injury that left him with bilat-
eral above-the-knee amputa-
tions, a broken jaw, nose,
pelvis, hip and four broken
fingers.
Among the key organizers of
Face Off for a Cause was Nease
High boys lacrosse head coach
Jack Francis and committee
member Josh Covelli, Fletcher
High boys lacrosse coach.

Marathon storms the beach; Fletcher baseball triumphs


FROM STAFF
Thousands of runners
pounded the sand along Jack-
sonville Beach and Neptune
Beach Sunday as part of the
inaugural 26.2 with Donna,
the National Marathon to
Fight Breast Cancer.
The course, which started
and finished at the Mayo
Clinic on San Pablo Road, also
included a stretch on the beach
and under the Jacksonville
Beach Pier.
Alene Reta and Mariska
Kramer-Postma were the men's
and women's winners, respec-
tively.
Reta, 25, of Ethiopia, fin-
ished the marathon in 2:21.57,
averaging a five-minute 25-sec-
ond mile. He finished nearly
two minutes ahead of his clos-
est competitor.
Kramer-Postma, 33, complet-
ed the race in 2:45.42, more
than two minutes ahead of the
second-place finisher.
Each runner collected the
$10,000 paycheck awarded to
first-place finishers.
In the half-marathon race,
Tradesse Abebe won the men's
competition and University of
North Florida grad Kim
Pawelek was the first woman
across the finish line..

record to 3-0 with the win.
Cory Franklin smacked an
RBI double and James Dillon
also clubbed a double for
Fletcher.
The Senators scored three in
the first and three in the sev-
enth to earn the tournament
championship.
Fletcher was slated to host
Nease High last night in a
game that was rained out
Monday.


BOYS SOCCER
Nease 2, Gulf Breeze 1
For a second straight season,
the Nease High boys soccer
team came back from Fort
Lauderdale as state champions.
A pair of first half goals was
all the Panthers needed last
Friday morning to top Gulf
Breeze, 2-1, and earn another
Class 4A title.
In the game's 20th minute,
Nease senior Joe McKinley


drilled a free kick from about
22 yards out into the comer of
the net to give his side a 1-0
lead.
McKinley is the Panthers'
go-to guy on free kicks from
plenty of areas in the offensive
end, but the forward is espe-
cially dangerous from that dis-
tance with his curling, well-
placed shots. He also had a
goal and two assists in last
Thursday's semifinal victory


over Naples Golden Gate.
Gulf Breeze (21-6-5) found
the equalizer three minutes
after McKinley's goal when
Stuart Parks collected a
rebound off Christian
Mauldwin's free kick and
slipped it past Panthers' keeper
Fernando Duffoo.
Eleven minutes later, Nease
striker A. Jay Nelson was
pushed down in the box and
converted his penalty kick to


put the Panthers in front 2-1.
It was Nelson's 24th goal of
the season.
For the remainder of the
first half and throughout the
second, Nease's defense
clamped down and allowed
the Dolphins few scoring
opportunities.
The Panthers outshot the
Dolphins 12-10, with Duffoo
recording four saves in the vic-
tory.
For his efforts Thursday
against Golden Gate and
Friday in the state champi-
onship game, McKinley was
named the Class 4A tourna-
ment MVP.
Set pieces proved to be the
difference for Nease in Fort
Lauderdale. Against Golden
Gate in the semifinals, Myles
Wright scored a pair of goals
off corner kicks from McKinley
en route to a 4-1 victory.
With McKinley's free kick
and Nelson's penalty try result-
ing in goals against Gulf
Breeze in the state final, the
Panthers cemented their abili-
ty to convert set pieces into
points.
Panthers head coach Ken
Kirsch said 60 percent of his
team's points throughout the
season resulted from set pieces,
and five of the six goals Nease
scored in the semifinal and
final came off dead-ball situa-
tions.
Nease finishes the season at
25-5-2 and will return top
point-scorers Filip Ivanov (34
goals, 22 assists) and Nelson
(24 goals, 17 assists) next sea-
son as it looks to defend the
back-to-back titles.

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader








F Phrlrv 20 .2008


I he Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


What can we believe in? Tebow and the N.Y. Giants


T e two biggest sports sto-
ries the past year here
probably are the election
of former Nease High star Tim
Tebow as Heisman Trophy win-
ner and, though not really all
that local, but
with local con-
nections from
the past, the
upset-minded
New York
Giants winning
the Super Bowl
over the New
England .
Patriots.
What's the
connection?
Simply that '
both events -r
seemed clear
and without
argument. REX EDM
No lawyers, PRESI
to our knowl-
edge, have
sued anyone over the results.
No allegations have been made
that the young Florida Gators
QB has ever injected steroids or
any other illegal matter that is
supposed to make him stronger
than King Kong, faster than a
speeding bullet or meaner than
a Marine sergeant with a hang-
over.
Tebow just played honestly,
beat out a group of the best col-
lege football players in the
country, took a few deserved
bows and came home from
New York just like it was a rou-
tine trip.
The New York Giants, under
the coaching of former
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach
Tom Coughlin, just stopped the
"unbeatable" New England
Patriots in one of the most
amazing upsets in Super Bowl
history.
Of interest to us, Coughlin
still has ties to our community.


He is said to be building a
house in Atlantic Beach, and
his golf tournament to raise
money for the Jay Fund is an
annual tradition.
Both the Super Bowl and
Heisman award ceremony -
even if you
were pulling for
the losers -
had to leave a
better taste in
our choppers.
SFor once,
S lawyers and
courtroom
scenes weren't a
S part of it.
The big story
S lately has been
whether Roger
Clemens, one
of the greatest
pitchers of.all
[ONDSON time, has been
S BOX lying when he
says he was
never injected
with anything and that his for-
mer physical fitness trainer's
account of using the seven-
time Cy Young Award winner's
fanny as a pincushion is a
fable.
The trainer, Brian McNamee,
even produced needles said to
have been used on Clemens,
something Roger vehemently
denies. It's not exactly, "Cross
my heart and hope to be a poor
man again," but a pledge that
the pitcher is telling the truth
more or less.
This whole thing has become
so tangled, the prosecutors, if
you will, confess they can't
decide who's telling the truth.
As if any would know the truth
now if they saw it.
We can't believe our major
league heroes would tell a fib,
and under oath, too.
We'd like to believe Clemens.
Shucks, that old Texas boy did-
n't get so big physically from

in Orlando. Tebow, a former Nease High star, won the 2007 Heisman Trophy as college football's most outstanding player.


steroids or human growth hor-
mones. He grew up big from
eatifig Wheaties and the veg-
gies his mom fed him.
Who will they,accuse next -
Popeye?
The trouble lies in players
having to be the best, to out-
grow and out-perform all the
other guys. After all, they have
dependents. They have some
mouths to feed and take care
of; their agents and lawyers, for
example.


Those types of pinstripe-suit
performers don't come cheap,
you know. And major league
players simply don't make
enough. They play for starva-
tion wages. That means they
have to be big and strong,
right?
Orie thing that sounds nostal-
gic is the name of Clemens'
trainer McNamee. There was
a time, long ago, when the
name "McNamee" was big in
the media. If you can remember


when Graham McNamee was
big as a radio commentator-
reporter in the newsreels and
radio, you're older than you let
on. Were the Twenties and
Thirties really that long ago?
Is Clemens really honest and
just a victim? One thing is sure:
He has sworn too much and
too long to refute it now and
throw himself on the mercy of
the public. Roger just has to go
on singing the same song and
dare folks to prove him wrong.


Meanwhile, if The Rocket
thinks he's got troubles, what
about new Florida State athletic
director Randy Spettman, who
found the administration had
put a gun to its own noggin
and shot away two years before
the NCAA cops even had a
chance.
The Seminoles are said to be
in trouble for cheating on aca-
demics. All that for just writing
the answers on their knees and
hands the way kids used to?

ABOVE: Nease High forward A. Jay Nelson heads in the first of his six goals against Clay High in
the district semifinals Jan. 23. The Panthers won, 9-1, to earn a berth is the state playoffs for a
second consecutive season. Nelson scored the winning goal on a penalty kick last Friday in
Nease's 2-1 victory over Gulf Breeze in the Class 4A state championship game.

LEFT: Panthers forward Alex Castellanos (3) is pushed to the ground by Orlando Bishop Moore
goalkeeper Pablo Rodriguez during the regional final Feb. 8 at Panther Stadium. Castellanos did-
n't score, but teammate Filip Ivanov scooped up the rebound and put one into the back of the net
as Nease earned a 3-1 victory and moved to last week's state semifinals at Lockhart Stadium in
Fort Lauderdale.


ABOVE: Nease High junior Filip Ivanov (in white) led the
Panthers this season with 34 goals and 22 assists.

BELOW: Panthers Alex Castellanos, left, and A. Jay Nelson col-
lide while trying to head the ball off a corner kick during the dis-
trict final against Menendez High.


Why a parent-teacher



group opened 88 new



checking accounts.



Those checking accounts helped fund new playground equipment, so just imagine what
you could do. For every member of your group who opens a checking account with
SunTrust, we'll donate $100 to the qualified non-profit organization of your choice.

Simply open your SunTrust checking account, accept and make any purchase with your new
SunTrust Visa- Check Card, and submit a completed redemption form. SunTrust will then
donate $100 in your name to the cause of your choice, which means you and likeminded
friends can make something very special happen. If your cause is a little more personal,
you can get a $50 SunTrust Visa' Gift Card instead

SunTrust also offers SunPoints for Charity,' an ongoing rewards program
that lets you keep supporting your favorite cause by turning everyday
banking into everyday giving
