Unkempt lots are yielding
more than complaints at the
Beaches. Code enforcement
officials are urging property
owners to maintain overgrown
vegetation to help curb a recent
rash of rodents infesting the
brush.
Jacksonville Beach Code
Inspector Colleen Klimtzak said
the city receives numerous
complaints from residents
about rats in palm trees.
"We are starting to get calls
here and there," she said. "We
are telling people to clean them
outand trim them up."
* Klimtzak said rats living in
palm trees don't necessarily stay
there. They are drawn to places
where food and water are readi- Scol
ly available and car. create a (fti
nuisance for homeowners. prin
She said she experienced first Surn
hand the destructive nature of
the rodents after rats living in
her neighbor's palm trees
climbed into the engine of her Cl
vehicle. C1
"They got into my car and ate
up all my electrical wiring," she
said. "They did $800 worth of Tt
damage. Not cool." Divi
Atlantic Beach Code Ope
Enforcement Officer Alex Th
Sherrer said that there is a recur- loca
ring problem with rats at the Suit
Beaches and calls for service Com
start coming in the spring. a.m.
Sherrer said people trimming take
palm trees are often surprised A
by rats dropping from the trees p.m
as the residents clear away the
old growth. He has already
starting logging the calls this Fir
season.
City code inspectors are not
permitted to dispense poison to "B
eradicate the rats. the
Sherrer said he instructs citi- Min
zens to call the county Health front
Department with concerns, Lan,
although he said they also often Fc
share a similar philosophy of f(
regarding the use of rat poison Lase
because of the danger it poses to Wor
children and pets. gam
Former Jacksonville Beach
Code Inspector Jud Spence said -
in a telephone interview
Thursday that anyone who is
feeding pets outside can expect
to have a problem.
"If rats have a lot of access to
water or someone is feeding
their pets outside or both they
are going to attract rats," he
said. "Rats want shelter and
food. If there is a place for them
to live they will do it."
Spence said rats are notorious
for inhabiting restaurant dump-
sters or other unsightly areas
where garbage and other debris
is available.
But he said a property does
hot have to be "nasty" or in
poor condition for a rat infesta-
tion to occur.
"It is not always [the owner's]
fault," Spence said, noting that
homeowners wishing to bait the
rodents with poison should do

three-to-five year city initiative
aimed at improving aesthetics and
safety in the Mayport Road area.,
By enforcing existing code regula-
tions and deadlines, the area will
become a more desirable place to live,
officials said.
"If we're successful, property values
will pay for the program. I'm con-
vinced of that," said Mayor John
Meserve at Tuesday's workshop meet-
ing.
Some areas that Commissioners
want to focus on include removing


chain link fencing. Also, Police Chief
David Thompson said that the city
needs to enforce window signage reg-
ulations, which are already on the
books.
The city may also look at adopting
new regulatory codes and will enforce
a recently passed property mainte-

some of the blighted buildings.

Easter theft

is final straw
FROM STAFF
Someone apparently rifled
through four collection boxes at a
Ponte Vedra Beach church on
Sunday, taking $441 out of dona-
tions that were meant for the poor.
It's not the first time the person
took without asking from the
church, Our Lady Star of the Sea
Catholic Church at 545 State Road
A1A, according to a St.-* Johns
County Sheriff's Office report.
The boxes,' containing above-
average amounts of money because
of the Easter holiday, were located
in four sections of the church,
according to a report by Deputy
Delbert Burkes. i
Church representatives were able
to identify the suspect, who was
caught on video tape, Burkes
reported.
A church lady said the suspect is
a 50-year-old homeless woman
who "has done this many times.in
the past," according to the report..
In the past, "the church felt the
need to reach out to her and help
her," the deputy reported.
But this time, the church has
decided to sign charges "due to the
fact [name] . is not going to
except (sic) the churches help but
is willing to help her self to money
that is for all the needy people in
the area and not just her," accord-
ing to the report.
The thief did not empty the
boxes but left $106 in the poor
boxes and $53 in the candle box.
Normally on Easter, the four poor
boxes would have contained $400
and the candle box $200, accord-
ing to the report.
Burkes said he believes the sus-
pect is the same woman to whom
he gave a trespass warning at the
church Nov. 30.
"The church is willing to sign
charges if we are able to locate
her," the deputy reported.

Landlords screening
tenants is part of plan
FROM STAFF
Another component to the plan to
clean up Mayport Road is landlord
involvement to help with crime pre-
vention, especially regarding rental
units.
The city may create a landlord
organization to improve the tenant
screening process or implement a
rental inspection program.
"Landlords will have to take respon-
sibility," Police Chief David Thompson
said during a presentation Tuesday.

festive PV welcome


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

The Ponte Vedra-Palm
Valley/Rawlings spring carni-
val, held for at least a score of
years at the Ponte Vedra
Beach elementary school,
opens for business at 10 a.m.
Saturday and runs to 4 p.m.
The event, for which $15
wristbands provide unlimited
rides and games, is open to
the community.
"It's huge, it's bigger and
better than ever," carnival
chair Jeanie Walser said
Wednesday as she and seven
other women worked at
Ponte Vedra-Palm Valley to
finalize silent auction items,
sponsorships and classroom
baskets for the event.
"Normally more than 3,000
people attend" the event held
behind the school on State
Road AlA, Walser said.
The Parent Teacher
Organization[PTO]-organized
carnival is the school's
biggest fund-raiser.
"Historically we average
S20,000 net," PTO president
K. .ei.Dow-d.said while ,tan.d-
'ing 'ith Assistant Printipal
Rita Scott amid large class-
room raffle baskets in the
Rawlings front office.
"It's our biggest fund-raiser
to give back to the school so


Ms. [school principal
Kathleen] Furness can contin-
ue a technology or ground
improvement."
A raffle and silent auction
typically raise the most funds
during the carnival, said
Carmen Chappell, the event's
s i I e n t
auction/sponsorships/class-
room baskets chair.
The silent auction includes
23 golf packages, while the
raffle, in addition to the class-
room baskets, features a
seven-day, six-night stay at a
newly opened condominium
complex on Turks and Caicos
Islands, near the Dominican
Republic.
"It's a two-bedroom, two-
bathroom condo at the
Regent Grand, fully loaded,"
said Chappell.
Raffle tickets will cost $20,
or six for $100.
New to this year's carnival
is a Kiddie Zone for young-
sters 5 and under.
"There is stuff for all ages,"
said Walser. "There's a Kiddie
Zone for small children,


there's an Extreme Zone for
larger children, with rock
climbing and bungee run,
gladiator jousting. There's
face painting, a D.J.
"There's more than 100
silent auction items and over
22 raffle baskets that are
unbelievable, a ton of stuff,"
she said.
Dowd said the carnival will
offer a Millie the Minipede-
type train ride. There also will
be "a human fussball, where
they roll each other and
knock down pins. We added a
second rock-climbing wall
because it's so popular."
Scott started at
PVPV/Rawlings in 1989, and
the spring carnival predates
her. Before that, the school
held an annual fall festival,
also popular with the com-
munity.
"It's a nice tradition," said
the assistant principal.
"Primarily PTO did it for
social reasons, to give parents
and kids a fun thing to do. As
a byproduct, it ends up being
a fund-raiser."

road cleanup


FROM STAFF
A local industrial-based
organization has pledged its
support of a city initiative to
improve Mayport Road,
according to the Atlantic Beach
mayor.
Jacksonville Area Shipping
Repair Association (JASRA) offi-
cials told Mayor John Meserve
that it wants to participate in
the city's effort to clean up the
Mayport Road corridor.
The association is composed
of approximately 30 to 35 com-
panies and nearly half are
based near Mayport Road,
according to Meserve.
Some of the companies
include Atlantic Marine and
Earl Industries, LLC, according
to the Beaches Division of the
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Jill Sprowell.
Sprowell said the association
is relatively new and will be
joining the Chamber of
Commerce this week.
JASRA officials could not be
reached for comment.


anticipates a certain degree of
"push back" from the commu-
nity, the city is not trying to
target anyone, according to
officials.
The city still has to deter-
mine if the enforcement will
be a city-wide effort or if it will
be focused in more concentrat-
ed areas, according to Hanson.
"People need to take pride in
their community," said


Hanson. "We will help, but
they need to be part of it."
Commissioner John Fletcher
pointed out that tackling safety
concerns should be the city's
first priority because people
will not want to move into
unsafe neighborhoods.
City staff will present a more
detailed plan to the
Commission within the next
month, according to Hanson.


Rats fall from palm trees

- RATS, from A-1


so along a fence line or other
trail leading to the problem area
to avoid coming in contact with
kids or pets. "They usually fol-
low the same trail," he said.
One Jacksonville Beach man
is asking for the city's help, say-
ing the owner of a nearby
vacant lot has ignored repeated
requests to maintain the proper-
ty and eliminate a rat infesta-
tion.
Benjamin Serra contends that
the owner of a nearby lot has
failed to regularly maintain the
property which, in addition to
being an eyesore, has caused an
influx of rats.
"It is ugly and full of rats,"
Serra said in a March 11 letter to
the owner which he forwarded
to city code inspectors and elect-
ed officials. "You always say you
will take care of it but you virtu-
ally never do."
Serra said in the past year, he


has trapped 23 rats on his back
porch.
"These rats thrive at [the]
unattended lot," he said. "We
see them in the trees, brush, etc.
even to this day. Imagine the joy
of ... finding rat feces on your
patio, patio furniture, cat food
bowl. Mine is as joyful as you
might expect."
Serra is asking for twice
monthly inspections of the Znd
Street South lots and appropri-
ate enforcement action if the
property is not properly main-
tained.
"This is not your fault. I fully
recognize that you folks have
bigger and stinkier fish to fry,"
Serra wrote in the letter to city
officials. "What we need here is
a long term solution. I just want
the lawn to look like a neighbor
owns it. Then you can go back
to your bigger and stinkier fish.


Veterans plan for bingo qets OK


FROM STAFF
Playing bingo at an establish-
ment off of Mayport Road was
approved by the Atlantic Beach
City Commission earlier this
month.
Allied Veterans of the World,
Inc. requested to open a "veter-
an's post and veteran's support
organization" which would
allow bingo and other activities,
according to Community


Development Director Sonya
Doerr.
The Commission found it was
a permitted use, although it is
not specifically addressed in the
code, according to Doerr. The
game can be played twice per
week and other activities will
include events such as fish fries,
Doerr said.
Commission initially had
some concerns about gambling.


Wetland

rezoning

plan draws

opposition


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
An application to rezone
several acres of wetland prop-
erty to residential zoning
across from an Atlantic Beach
neighborhood will be
reviewed by a city board next
month.
The Community
Development Board will
review an application to
rezone approximately 7.25
acres of wetland property,
known as Selva Preserve, to
allow a maximum of 16 single
family residential lots adja-
cent to Selva Linkside, accord-
ing to the application.
The meeting will be held at
6 p.m. at City Hall, 800
Seminole Road.
"This has been a con-
tentious piece of property,"
said Atlantic Beach
Community Development
Director Sonya Doerr, who
anticipates the that the pro-
posal will be the "next big
issue" before the board.
Doerr explained the history
of the property, saying that
the developer of Selva
Linkside promised potential
homeowners that the wet-
lands would not be devel-
oped. But, he did not own the
property, she said.
The property is currently
zoned conservation, but it has
some rights to be used for res-
idential purposes according to
the city's comprehensive land
use plan, Doerr said.
Selva Linkside resident
Stephen Kuti received a letter
from Laura Ferrante, who rep-
resents the developer, and
said he is opposed to the pro-
posal at a City Commission
meeting Monday.
"'Those wetlands are serving
a purpose. They soak in the
rainwater and prevent flood-
ing," he said.
An environmental study has
been conducted and the
biggest concern is storm water
impacts, Doerr said.
"The last time I spoke to the
attorney [Ferrante], she was
trying to schedule a neighbor-
hood meeting," said Doerr.,
Ferranrite ;' could. .- not-, be
reached for comment.

Accommodations for traffic needed


To the editor.
I have followed with interest
the writings and published com-
ments during this past month
regarding the possible insuffi-
ciency of that section of Palm
Valley Road between the round-
about and the new bridge, in the
event of an evacuation. I refer to
those of Mr. Doug Crane and Mr.
John Clifford, local residents,
and both. officers of the MSD
and the Ponte Vedra
Community Association, respec-
tively. Their comments piqued
my curiosity, and prompted me
to do a little bit of research on
my own.
Going to the Transportation
Analysis Spreadsheets on the
County web site, I found the lat-
est following numbers for this
sector of roadway:
2006 peak hour traffic (week-
day) 1362
Approved peak hour service
volume 1920
This represents a relatively
comfortable 70 percent capacity
utilization level (which will soon
include an additional count of
124 for 2007, or an increase to
77 percent of the approved serv-
ice volume), despite the
"Critical" designation, and a
"D" rating. Added to that, how-
ever, must be the committed
traffic from those developments
already approved but yet to be
built. This brings the total com-
mitted traffic volume to 100 per-
cent. These numbers have been
discussed with Mr. Joe
Stephenson, director of Public
Works, who assures me that my
assumptions are accurate.
Further consultation with Mr.
Stephenson revealed that road-
way planning and capacity deci-
sion-making are not based upon
potential evacuation needs. I
quote him as follows: "To the
best of my knowledge, trans-
portation models do not consid-
er emergency evacuation in the
algorithms (formulas) they use
to assign and distribute traffic to
an existing or future roadway
network that is being analyzed."
He.. also goes on to say: "The
final design of a roadway could
easily provide -features 'that
would facilitate emergency evac-
uation, and -probably- should
whenever such features can be
identified during a design or
improvement' project. The
point I hope to make is that the


number of lanes and other
major capacity determinations
(size issues) are not made on the
basis of emergency evacuation
volumes but rather on the basis
of 'everyday' need."
What might the future hold
for this section of road? The
Transportation Analysis
Spreadsheets assume an annual
growth rate of 7.94 percent. But
that was calculated.prior to the
housing crisis and before $4 per
gallon gas. Internally generated
traffic growth should be modest,
since our community is near
build-out. There are the (about
10-acre) Mier property near
Corona Road, the 30-acre former
United Water sewer property
behind Talbot's, and a possible
new hotel on the unimproved
land belonging to the PGA Tour,
the developments of which
could be significant. .On bal-
ance, however, the modest
growth will depend primarily
upon the vigilant defense of our
zoning ordinances, particularly
those related to density.
Externally generated traffic
growth is another matter, how-
ever, and in my opinion, repre-
sents a clear and present danger
to the community. Nocatee,
when completed, will be a true
city of some 35,000 people -
equal to or somewhat larger in
population than Ponte
Vedra/Palm Valley. Their only
connection to the outside world
is an east/west road Nocatee
Parkway, plus a westerly exten-
sion to U.S. 1 at Racetrack Road.
There is absolutely no
north/south connection to the
outside world, planned or in
progress. Consequently, much
of Nocatee will be forced to use
the PV/PV roads as their
north/south connection. By the
time that Nocatee attains some
10,000 residents, their traffic will
be a significant percentage of the
total Palm Valley Road volume.
It will become a tremendous and
unwanted burden. We must, as
a community, impress upon our
county commissioners that
other accommodations for this
traffic mimade.
Perhaps ~~Nfrs. Crane ardd
Clifford, their organizations,
and other community organiza-
tions would join me in this
quest.

Local artists are due consideration


To the editor.
Atlantic Beach has earmarked
$155,000 for public art projects.,
Are they spending this money
anywhere even near our com-
munity? No, they are spending
it in Delaware. I recall being
encouraged to support our
Beaches businesses and boost
our local economy, but I guess
that only means the lowly con-
stituents and not the officials
we elected.
With all of the local artists,
from Atlantic Beach, and the
neighboring beaches communi-
ties, in addition to Jacksonville,
we apparently have no one
"good enough" to commission
a sculpture from. So our elected
officials decide to spend the


money provided by
Jacksonville, the City of Atlantic
Beach, and the arts commission,
all of which:.-ire local, in
. Delaware.
Am I the only person who
sees the wrong in this? Am I the
only person who sees so many
possibilities for this venture?
Promotion of our city, our
money well spent and where it
is being spent actually "well
thought out". Even more possi-
bilities, there could be a contest
for the sculptures to be used; the
possibilities are there if only we
choose to explore them.

Already very clear how Florida's deleg


To the editor:
I am tired of hearing that
Florida Democrats need a
"Do Over" for its delegates to
the Democratic Convention
in Denver in August. The
Delegate Selection was per-
formed (and continue to be
performed) according to the
2007 Delegate Selection
Program adopted by the
Florida Democratic Party
June 13, 2007 (a copy of
which can 'be obtained'
online). The Primary was
held January" 29, 2008,
according to Florida Law and
those Party Rules. Although.
the National Democratic
Party said, and continues to
say, that the process was in
violation of National party
Rules, it is (and was) not ille-
gal.
In that Primary .7 million
(more or less) Party members
voted for a Presidential
Preference. (That occurred in
spite of constant television
and radio statements that
there was only a Republican
Primary.) All eight candi-
dates for the Democratic
Party-preference at that time
were on the ballot, even
though a few had already
"opted out," and even
though the National Party
told them all not to. cam-
paign, advertise or partici-
pate in Florida. And, none of
them did campaign or adver-


tist in Florida. They all had
the same "level playing
field" that everyone seems to
cherish.
No advertising and no
active solicitation, however,
did not mean that the voters
(electors) who took the time
and effort to show up at the
polls 'were prohibited from
voicing their choices, which
they did. Senator Clinton got
50+/-% of that vote; Senator
Obama 37+/-% of that vote;
former Senator Edwards got
13+/-% thereof; with a mini-
mal amount of
Uncommitted, Biden,
Kucirich, Richardson, etc.
votes. That vote, and deci-
sion, should stand.
Florida's Primary was dif-
ferent from Michigan in that
one important fact: all the
candidates were on the bal-
lot., As. above, none of the
candidates campaigned in
Florida. Therefore, there was
no undue influence, no
inequity, no unfairness to
any candidate, and anything
beyond that result and deci-
sion is a waste of money and
could actually act as a disen-
franchisement- of those who
already voted in January.
The only "fair" Way to dis-.
tribute the Democratic votes,
per Florida Party Rules and
federal Voting Rights
Amendment limits, in
Denver, is to allocate those

My idea of Animal Control is
an agency available to answer

covered garage of the victim's
condominium and burglar-
ized two of his vehicles. A

Preserving a difficult past


One of the original slave cabins at the Kingsley Plantation has been reconstructed at the Kingsley Plantation.
PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE FLORIDA CENTER FOR INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA


by CHRISTOPER McCOMISKEY
CONTRIBUTOR
Nearly 200 years ago,
enslaved Africans fresh from
the forced voyage of the
Middle Passage would plow
the more than 1,000 acres of
the plantation, tilling the soil
for cotton, citrus and sugar
cane crops, as well as for a
profit that they themselves
would never see.
Today, with the vast major-
ity of the site overgrown by
forest and the remains of 23
of the original 32 slave cabins
still somewhat intact,
Kingsley Plantation lives on
as a monument to a time in
history that is often discussed
but seldom explored.
In 1998, the very first
Kingsley Heritage Celebration
was held in October as a one-
day event to honor the plan-
tation's storied history. This
year the celebration was held
in February to coincide with
Black History Month.
Aside from a shift on the
calendar, the event was also
expanded into a month-long
commemoration featuring a
wide array of activities, from
musical performances to sto-
rytelling, held each Saturday
to highlight the history of the
plantation and its inhabi-
tants. There was even a
reunion for descendants of
some of the slaves of Kingsley
Plantation on Feb. 23.
One of the more historical-
ly engaging programs was
hosted Feb. 16 by University
of Florida professor James
Davidson.
Davidson, an associate pro-
fessor of anthropology and
African-American studies,
began with a detailed presen-
tation of some of the recent
projects he has undertaken at
Kingsley Plantation. With the
assistance of student volun-
teers from the University of
Florida Historical
Archaeological Field School
over the summers of 2006
and 2007, Davidson was able
to recover unique artifacts
that help to tell the story of
the slaves and slave owners
who inhabited this plantation
more than 100 years ago.
Among the findings were
French gunflints, which indi-
cated to Davidson that each
of the 32 slave cabins was
purposely issued firearms for


protection and other uses.
The remnants of a chickeri
sacrifice and its subsequent
burial were also discovered
beneath the floor of one of
the cabins. According to
Davidson, this practice was
presumably part of an African
religious ceremony.
After the presentation,
Davidson led a guided walk
through the grounds of the
plantation, detailing its histo-
ry and describing the way of
life for slaves and wealthy
planters alike.
Carol Clark, a park ranger
at Kingsley Plantation, real-
izes just how important it is
to have such a historic monu-
ment here in Jacksonville to
physically document this
very significant yet very diffi-
cult period of American life
"Most plantation sites
around the country are not
still standing today," she said.
"But here, we have entire
buildings intact, so people
can walk around the grounds,
where the owners and the
slaves actually walked, and
they can put themselves into
history.
You can read about slaves
and the plantation period all
you want, but it's really hard
to visualize this particular
point in time until you actu-
ally come and visit."
Clark also stresses that the
Kingsley Plantation allows for
a more open forum for discus-
sions about race relations
because it presents the situa-
tion of the antebellum period
of the American South in a
straightforward way, by let-
ting the facts of history speak
for themselves through this
tangible window to the past.
"It's important to us that
we portray the history of the
plantation without forcing
opinions on people," Clark
said.
"Our goal is to educate, so
we don't want to tell them
what to think. We want to
keep the perspective that slav-
ery is slavery, and then leave
it up to people to interpret
the situation once they per-
ceive it firsthand.
This plantation tends to
bring the full gambit of emo-
tions out of people. Some feel
angry, some enlightened and
others spiritual. But for me as
a staff member, my job is to


help to provide a place where
m6rtyt.'s cat t'c0 t ut'ttop'eh-

And this is precisely why
Davidson's research and dis-
coveries are so important in
the overall understanding of
slavery, according to Clark.
"The slaves here at Kingsley
Plantation didn't leave
behind diaries or other writ-
ten records for us to read,"
she said.
"But through the objects
that Dr. Davidson recovered,
we are able to give these peo-
ple a voice. This is how they
are speaking to us, through
these physical expressions. .
We can gather from the
music and the food and the
tradition of these people, and
we can see how remnants of
these things are still present
today."
Fellow ranger Roger Clark
similarly believes that it is
absolutely crucial for the peo-
ple who visit Kingsley
Plantation to understand the
hardships that slaves were
forced to endure, but also to
appreciate their collective
resolve to overcome the
shackles placed. upon them
and subsequently have an
impact on
American society that con-
tinues to resonate to this day.
"We don't sugarcoat any-
thing here," he said. "We talk
about the atrocities that the
slaves here experienced, but
at the same time we still want
to present these people as
human beings.
We want people to realize
that even if a slave owner was
considered benevolent, as
(this plantation's primary
owner and subsequent name-
sake) Zephaniah Kingsley
was, a slave was still a slave.
They were at the whim of the
planter and could be sold at
any time, and many times
families were even broken up.
But despite this, a great deal
of the
slave culture still permeates
through America today,
especially in music and dance
... I think many times the
struggles of the slave are"
unappreciated."
,The Kingsley Plantation is
part of the Timucuan
Ecological and Historic
Preserve on Fort
George Island. The area was
controlled by many wealthy
property owners during
Florida's plantation period,
the most notable of which
was the aforementioned
Kingsley, who presided over
the 1,000-acre estate from
1814 to 1837. Kingsley mar-
ried one of his slaves, a


Senegalese woman named
whom he had three children.
When control of Florida
was -transferred from Spain to
that of the American colonies
in 1821, the Kingsleys faced a
great deal of scrutiny, as inter-
racial marriage was frowned
upon in the Americas. After
the Kingsleys departed to
Haiti several years later, the
plantation went through sev-
eral more successions of own-
ership until it was finally
named a state park in 1955.
In 1970 the Kingsley
Plantation was also added to
the National Register of
Historic Places. The planter's
house at Kingsley Plantation
is the longest-standing plan-
tation house in Florida that is
still structurally intact.
Although the grounds of
the Kingsley Plantation have
now been reduced from 1,000
acres to a mere 60 through
the passage of, time and the
flourishing of forest, it
remains one of the. most
important historical sites of
its kind because of the story it
tells.
Though these artifacts have
been left behind by a group of
people long since gone, their
prolonged endurance and
subsequent restoration con-
tinues to send the message
that humanity and courage
can overcome oppression, as
well as the unrelenting lapse
from one era to the next.
The plight of the slaves dur-
ing the plantation era can
never truly be understood or
felt by the people of today's
America, but with the exis-
tence of places such as the
Kingsley Plantation, their
struggles and sacrifices can
never be forgotten.

Matanzas, 10-9, Tuesday in
girls lacrosse.
The game was a back-and-
forth affair featuring six lead
changes. The Pirates got on
the board first, scoring 1:45
seconds into the contest, but
the Senators (9-2) stormed
back to take a 5-4 halftime
lead.
With a pair of quick scores
after the break, Matanzas took
a 6-5 advantage.
Fletcher
rebounded to go
ahead 8-7, then
the teams trad-

UNF nets 3rd win over ranked foe


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR

One-run games are the
shifting winds of baseball,
variables between a good sea-
son and one that could have
been.
"If you take them off your
loss side and put them on
your win side, it makes a big
difference in your season,"
University of North Florida
skipper Dusty Rhodes said fol-
lowing Wednesday's 4-3 non-
conference victory over the
University of South Florida .
"We've had some close
games this year and there
have been situations where we
lost games late because we
struggled or made errors."
That wasn't the case Wed-
nesday night at chilly Harmon
Stadium as the Ospreys (13-
10) raised their winning streak
to four games and their non-
conference record to 8-3 over-
all.
UNF knocked off No. 19
Central Florida (20-5) Tuesday
night in Orlando for its third
triumph over a nationally
ranked opponent this season.
The Ospreys beat the visit-
ing Bulls in 10 innings
Wednesday as senior right
fielder T.J. Gaudy scored the
game-winner off a wild pitch
after reaching base with a
leadoff single.
UNF starts only five seniors
this season, but their play of
late has Rhodes optimistic
about his team's Atlantic Sun
Conference chances this year.
"Those guys have really
stepped up and been leaders
of the team," said Rhodes
about Gaudy and classmates
Chad Knight, Travis Martin,
Andy Warren and Mike P.

Smith.
"Beating two state universi-
ties on back-to-back nights
helps our recruiting and our
confidence."
UNF heads to East
Tennessee State University
this weekend for a three-game
series with the Bucs (5-16),
who swept defending A-Sun
tournament champion
Jacksonville University (14-8,
7-5 in A-Sun) last weekend.
Because the Ospreys are a
transitional Div. I program
and are not eligible for Div. I
postseason play until 2010,
they put a lot of stock in their
conference matchups.
"Those games mean a lot to
us because that's the only
thing we have to play for,"


said Rhodes, whose club
would have qualified for the
six-team A-Sun tournament
the past two years had it been
eligible.
"East Tennessee swept JU
last week and that hasn't
been done in a long time.
They're starting to turn it up
and we need to go up there
and win two out of three or
all three to put us right back
in the conference race."
Both of UNF's one-run loss-
es came in conference play.
The Ospreys suffered a 4-3
setback to A-Sun leader
Florida Gulf Coast University
(18-6, 10-2) and fell 7-6 to
Belmont (Tenn.) College, the
2007 A-Sun tournament run-
ner-up.
"We lost two games against
Belmont where we had a
three-run lead in the eighth
in one game and a two-run
lead in the ninth in another,"
lamented Rhodes, now in his
21st season at the UNF helm.
"Losing those put us at a
disadvantage, but I still think
the conference is wide open."
UNF is 5-3 versus in-state
opponents this season with
high-profile games against
the University of Florida
(April 4, 8 and 9) and No. 2
Florida State (April 16) on the
horizon.
"We've beaten every four-
year school in the state
except Florida State," said
Rhodes, whose 2007 team
beat Florida and Miami last
season on the road.
"A lot of people think
because we're new in
Division I that we can't com-
pete, but we can. And when
you think about it, we're one
of the youngest teams on the
block."

Director George Ballis (left) of Atlantic Beach and actors Maury Covington and Cee Cee Hayes rehearse a scene from the 1961
Tennessee Williams play "Night of the Iguana."




Iguana' worth capturing


"0 courage, could you not as
well select a second place to
dwell, not only in that golden tree
but in the frightened heart of
me?" Tennessee Williams,
from "Night of the Iguana."

*by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
M aury Covington says
there's a reason why
actors and directors
are drawn to the works of
renown American playwright
Tennessee Williams.
"He packed an enormous
amount of life into his charac-
ters," Covington, an Atlantic
Beach resident, said.
A professional actor who has
worked in film and television,
Covington said he jumped at
the chance to play the not-so-
priestly Rev. T. Lawrence
Shannon in "Night of the
Iguana," which opens today at
Players by the Sea Community
Theater.
Performances are 8 p.m.
today and Saturday and 2 p.m.
Sunday at 106 6th St. N.,
Jacksonville Beach. Tickets are
$18 and $15.
Covington was cast as a"


man of the cloth in the 1997
film "Zeus and Roxanne" and
for an episode of TV's
"Sheena."
But in "Night of the
Iguana," set in a Mexican rain
forest near Puerto Barrio,
Covington plays a defrocked
minister on the verge of a
nervous breakdown.
The role of Rev. Shannon
was first made famous by
Patrick O'Neal, who starred in
the award-winning 1961
Broadway premiere directed
by Frank Corsaro.
Covington studied acting
with Corsaro in New York in,


the late 1960s, but his main
reason for auditioning for the
Players part stems from his
admiration for director
George Ballis of Atlantic
Beach .....
"When I first heard George
would 'be involved, I knew I1
wanted to be in it," said
Covington, who studied
drama at American University.
"I auditioned and fortunate-
ly got the role."
Ballis earned a Pelican
Award at Players for directing
"A Delicate Balance." The play
was voted best main stage pro-
duction during the 2005-06
season. He directed "All the
Way Home" at Players last
year.
"This is one [Tennessee
Williams] play that is not done
very frequently," said Ballis.
"It's a difficult play to cast,
but such a good stage vehicle."
Ballis said he has -directed
"The Glass Menagerie," a 1945
Pulitzer Prize-winning play by
Williams, "four or five times,"
but never "The Night of the
Iguana," which is considered
the playwright's last commer-
cial success.

PLANT CLINIC AT BEACH






PLANT CLINIC AT BEACH


A Duval County Extension Plant
Clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to
12 p.m. Saturday at Turner Ace
Hardware, 784 Marsh Landing
Parkway, Jacksonville Beach.
Master Gardeners will be on hand


to answer gardening questions,
hand out publications on various
gardening subjects and collect any
soil samples for pH testing.
Call the extension office at 387-
8850 for more details.


Ballis in "A Delicate Balance,"
Cee Cee Hayes and Larry
Fairall, join Covington in the
cast of 'I9guana."
Hayes plays Maxine, a
bawdy innkeeper, and Fairall
assumes the smaller, but cru-
cial rl61e of a wheelchair-
bound poet on his last literary
legs.
The cast also features Players
newcomer Sinda Nichols as
Miss Hannah Jelkes, a peniless
sketch artist who takes a "sym-
pathetic interest" in Shannon,
Gayle Featheringill as a can-
tankerous vocal teacher and
Lexe Robbins as a teenager
smitten by Shannon.
Ballis said he hates to miss
even one line of th6 Williams
play during rehearsals.
"His language is so beautiful
and the subtext is so interest-
ing," Ballis said.
Poetic symbolism plays a
major role in many of
Williams' works.
"In the American theatre,
very few playwrights have ever
approached Tennessee
Williams' ability to make one

Iguana: Tenn. Williams play set in 1940s Mexico


Cont. from B-1
feel that the theatre is a form of
poetry no matter how much
melodramatic motion it
entails," former Yale University
professor John Gassner said.
Fairall's character is a "minor
romantic poet" who delivers a
powerful, six-stanza poem at
play's end.
Jelkes, described in the play
as a keen observer who resem-
bles a "medieval sculpture of a
saint," doesn't judge people,
only draws them.
She realizes that the self-
indulgent Shannon, who does-
n't have "a dime left in his
emotional bank account,"
must "fight and howl for his
decency" amid his many
detractors, in and outside the
church.
"Tennessee Williams has an
interesting resolution to that,"
said Covington, who directed


:'Private Lives" at Players.
"It addresses all our own
weaknesses."
"Night of the Iguana" was
one of Williams' few plays with
an uplifting ending.,
The script is sharp-tongued
and to the point.
"You're completely broke,
are you?" Maxine :'quizzes
Hannah.
"Yes, we are completely,"
the proud but penniless artist
replies.
"You say that like you're
proud of it," Maxine says.
"I'm not proud of it or
ashamed of it either," says
Hannah. "It just happens to be
what's happened to us."
Shannon and Jelkes have
both "overdrawn their
resources" by the time they
wind up at the Costa Verde
Hotel, which overlooks a rain
forest and a "still-water beach."


The dilapidated resort
becomes their sanctuary of
sorts during the turbulent sum-
mer of 1940, as war ravages in
Europe but has yet to reach the
shores of North America.
Fritz Reinhardt, Annette
Page, Jeff Brewer and Rachael
Jones have cameos in the play
as a family of overbearing
German tourists who crassly
celebrate the Nazi fire bomb-
ings of London.
The original Broadway play
earned Williams his fourth and
final New York Drama Critics
Award and was adapted into an
Academy Award-winning film
in 1964 starring Richard
Burton, Ava Gardner and
Deborah Kerr.
Williams, who wrote an early
draft of "The Glass Menagerie"
while living in Mexico in 1942,
was nicknamed Tennessee in
college because of his deep


Southern drawl.
His given name was Thomas
Lanier Williams III.
Shannon and Williams share
the same first initials. Hannah
is loosely patterned after
Williams' sister, Rose, who died
in a mental institution.
In "Night of the Iguana,"
Shannon is billed as a graduate
of the University of the South
at Sewanee, Tenn., and the
grandson of an Episcopal bish,
op.
Williams left his literary
rights to Sewanee, in honor of
his grandfather, an Episcopal
priest who graduated from
Sewanee. The funds support a
creative writing program at the
college.
"Night of the Iguana" runs
through April 19. Call 249-
0289 for reservations, or visit
playersbythesea.org.
