A pit bull attack on a small
dog last week will be discussed at
a Neptune Beach City Council
workshop meeting in May.
Vice Mayor Harriet Pruette
said that thie city wants to pre-
vent a repeat of an April 23 inci-
dent in which a pit bull got free
from his leash and attacked a
dog being walked by a woman.
"It was horrible,. absolutely
horrible," said Pruette. of the
incident.
According tosa police report,
the complainant -was walking
her two small dogs when an
unknown male on a skateboard
approached her near First Street
and South Street at approxi-
mately 5:20 p.m.
T~he male was holding a leash
tethered to a pit bull that broke
free, according to~ the report.

That dog's owner was not
hurt, but the injured dog, which
suffered a broken jaw and sev-
ered tongue, had to be put to
sleep, Pruette said, explaining
that the city's animal control
ordinance may need to be
"tweaked" after this incident.
She said that preventing a
recurrence is important and sug-
gested public muzzling of dan-
gerous: animals may be an
option. The council will listen
to any suggestions, she said.
Neptune Beach Assistant
Police Chief Tony Carrillo said
the incident is being investigat-
ed.

A: speed limit reduction on
Mayport Road is being studied at the
request of the mayor.
Atlantic Beach Mayor John
Meserve Monday asked staff look
into the possibility of reducing the
speed limit on Mayport Road- which
is currently 45 miles per hour dur-
ing constniction.
"If we don't get people going a lit-
tle slower during construction, it
will remain 45 [miles per hour]
going on 80 [miles per hour],"
Meserve said at Monday's meeting.


He also said a lower speed limit
could help reduce the number of
accidents.
City Manager Jim Hanson said
that a previous commission was also
in support of a speed limit reduction
on Mayport Road. That was prior to
the road work and the state balked
at the change at the: time.
Although Me'serve said thiat any
reduction would be beneficial, he
said he thinks that setting the limit
at 35 miles per hour would be the
most reasonable to help curb driverS
from traveling at rates as high as 65
miles per hour, he said.


Meserve said that there have been
at least three accidents since con-
'struction on the road began earlier
this, month.
His goal, he said, is to get people
in the habiit of driving more slowly
during construction slated to last
approximately a year a~s that when
it is complete, people will coiltinue
to maintain a slower speed.
The work will add niedians along
the roadway aind provide for addi-
tional landscaping on the stretch
between Atlantic Boulevard on the
south and Pioneer Drive on the
north.

off on the application for out-

According to court docks-
ments, Lindorff signed an
application allowing outside
food and alcohol sales in
February, 2007 and later
attempted to rescind a portion
of the approval, claimilig that
he "overlooked the check mark

"He claimed that he just

FROM STAFF
The Palm Valley Community
Association once again is team-
ing up with The Players
Championship to ease traffic
congestion during next week's
tournament.
Roscoe Boulevard will be
used as a "relief valve" for traf-
fic going to and from the tour-
nament at nearby TPC at
Sawgrass, according to Garry
Phillips, vice president of the
community association and


At the end of play,-the pat-
tern will be reversed, with traf-
fic leaving through the Roscoe
Boulevard gate directed north
on Roscoe to Solana Road and
A1A. No vehicles leaving the
gate will be allowed to go
south of Roscoe, according to
the news release.
Roscoe Boulevard is one of
few roads in the Ponte Vedra
Beach area that some consider
to be Palm Valley.

During times of heavy traffic

gave preliminary approval for the new loca-
tion, but will review some conditions, such
as whether hot food canl be prepared on site.
Organic vegetables, fruit and plants .are
available at the market. Crafts from local
vendors are also sold.
Ferrell has also initiated an organic com-
munity garden concept.in Neptune IBeach.
"People are starting to realize the impor-
tance of local and organic food, both for the
health of our bodies and our planet, and
farmer's markets are being created all over
the country in response to this demand," she
said in the e-mail.
"My goal in creating the Community
Garden and Education'al Programs in con-
junction with the Green Market is to
approach solutions to the long-term food
security issues we are facing today."


FROM STAFF
An organic farmers market may be moving
back to Neptune Beach.
The Beaches Green Market which current-
ly operates in a parking lot in Jacksonville
Beach could be moving to Jarboe Park.
"Jarboe Park, in addition to being a park
and not a parking lot, is more pedestrian
friendly and hopefully will be cooler in the
heat of summer," Beaches Green Market
organizer Gretchen Ferrell said in an e-mail.
Ferrell revived the concept of a Beaches
farmers market after a previous attempt by
community members to host a similar one in

The Neptune Beach City Council last week


Powers submitted a second
application to extend the
licensed premises for alcohol
and food sales which Lindorff
failed to sign until "Fast Boys
complies with the requirements
of the conditional use approval
granted -by the Jacksonville
Beach Planning Commission."
In a letter to Fast Boys' attor-
ney Paul Harden, Lindorff said a
"physical and visual barrier"
had to be constructed to create
a boundary between Beach
Marine and the Fast Boys deck.
Powers said she had no inten-
tion of building such a structure
because it is not mandated by
the city's Land Development
Code.
"No where in the code does it
say I have to," she said after fil-
ing suit against Lindorff. "He is
just making it up as he goes
along."


Judge Day in his order stated
that city code does not contain
any provision requiring a wall
or any other structure to sepa-
rate adjacent businesses,
"The "condition" proposed
by [Lindorffj in the October 2,
2007 letter is not required by
the Land Development Code,
nor was the "condition" includ-
ed as a condition in the order of
the Planning Commission,"
Day said in his ruling, noting
that- Fast Boys' location meets
all of the zoning requirements
for outdoor alcohol sales.
Lindorff argued that signing
the DBPR application was up to,
his discretion as the city's zon-
ing authority and that city code
allows him to "render interpre-
tations" of that code on a case
by case basis. The judge said,
however, that the decision to
sign the DBPR application is not


a quasi-judicial function.
Lirndorff had asserted that
signing the DBPR application
"is equivalent to his making
decisions on whether to issue
building permits, site plans and
other development orders."
According to the Land
Development Code, Day said
Lind-orff does not have the
authority to interpret the code
"to mean that a physical and
visual barrier is required to
define how the area of unen-
closed, outdoor customer serv-
ice space [is] allowed to be used

FROM STAFF
The Mayport Waterfront
Partnership will draft a resolu-

water from the St. Johns River.
The Partnership agreed
recently that it should join
other governing bodies that
have also passed resolutions in
opposition of the St. Johns

drawal of several thousand gal-
lons of water from the river to
central Florida.

"not very happy with the situa-

The Partnership passed a,reso-

proposed terminal because mem-

Meserve played an integral role

Atlantic Beach Mayor John
Meserve Tuesday said that a ter-

While Meserve said he recog-

A new program of the St.

aims at more contact between
deputies and the public in a

The plan is for shift com-

Mulligan said.

DAVID SMIITI-I
COLUMNIST

instructed the City negotiat-
ing team to offer our police a
0% increase each of the next
two years.
The excuse we hear is that
we don't have enough
money. The truth is our prior-
ities are upside down. The
budget for the City Managers
office increased 15% last year,
even before .the Council
approved two years of consec-
utive 5% raises for the City
Manager. We spent
$3,000,000 to realign
Penman Road, -wlhy -LI don't -
known. We paid, more than j
$2,000,000, for land down-
town to be used, at least tem-
porarily, for more surface
parking to allow more irisitors
we don't have the staff to
police. The $130,000 tide
clock that was approved then
disapproved would fund
three officers, the $67,000
paper folder/sorter .purchased
to send full-color folded
propaganda pieces with the
electric bills would pay for
almost two.
I often- think understaffing
the police is by design to ben-
efit the bar owners, the only
ones really prospering in our
"entertainment district",
which is the location of 25%
of our crime. Does the

responsible for causing our
crime problem. They are just
a Band-aid for the cut.
The causes of our high
crime are the policies of the
City, the actions of the plan-
ning department, and deci-
sions of the planning com-
mission: abundant free park-
ing, high bar density, over-
taxed police, lack of ins~titu-
tional controls on anti-social
behavior, understaffed code
enforcement with none
nights or weekends, not pri-
oritizing crime reduction
strategies like the Head Start
program, ignoring proven
crime reduction techniques
like adequate lighting, refus-
ing to recognize the differ-
ence between a restaurant
and a bar, clinging to the past
and refusing to accept current
realities, all result in resigned
tolerance of crime by our res-
idents.
To date the city's approach
to our crime problem is to
either pretend it doesn't exist
or blame it on someone else.
When we had the riot in the
pier parking lot last month
:that took billy clubs, tasers,
San hour, and a hundred cops
to quell: it was because school
was not in session.
When we had gunplay
amongst large early morning
crowds at Latham Plaza last.
summer, it was because a bar
had closed. Guess what?
Schools let out and bars close.
Never has the City acknowl-
edged that our high crime
rate is because we have creat-
ed an .environment con-
ducive to crime, a breeding
ground. Until that occurs we
are without hope.
What are the solutions to
our crime problem? It sure
doesn't look like the Council.
has any answers. If you don't
believe me, just ask one.
A good first step is to take
care of our police. They
deserve it.

Smith lives with his family in
downtown Jacksonville Beach.


Last year Jax Beach once
Again had the~ highest
rie rate in northeast
Florida. We host thousands of
visitors but staff our police
only based on our resident
population. We have none to
manage the hordes from
across the ditch. Our police
handle more calls for service
per officer than any other
department in the area. We
are blessed to have a core
group of dedicated, experi-
enced officers probably the
best in the state.
The City and police are
negotiating police salaries for
the next two years. Our
police, similar to the
Jacksonville Sheriffs Office
aSO), are compensated based
on a negotiated 17-step pay
scale. All new hires, regardless
of experience, normally start
at pay step one, currently
$17.10 per hour. If after one
year the officer receives a sat-
isfactory review they advance
to pay step two at $17.60/hr.
With an outstanding review
they advance two steps to pay
step three at $18.48/hr.
,,The City would~ character-.
ize the latter as a 6% raise. I
w:~ioul~d characterize it as
underpaid. Following this
pay plap, after six years an
officer receiving only,satisfac-
tory reviews would be paid
more than $13,000 per year
less than their JSO counter-
part, with outstanding
reviews every other year
almost $9,000 per year less.
Thie police are asking for
raises of 7% for the next two
years to reduce this pay dif-
ferential. We have a. difficult
time filling positions at the
police department and I
believe we currently have
four unfilled positions. The
police shortage is a natioital
problem. I have heard JSO is
short 400 officers. Closing the
pay differential would help us
compete with JSO for the lim-
Sited pool of good officers.

to the public, the Council has

To the editor:
I'm sorry that so many peo-
ple in the real estate business
are undergoing hard times
and I hope that the market
will rebound shortly.
However, this fact does not
excuse .the blatant disregard
for Jacksonville Beach city
codes that prohibit snipe
signs on the city right of
ways. I am referring to the
proliferation of AUCTION
signs that appear every week-
end in one or more locations.
I know for a fact that the bro-
kers are aware that these signs
are illegal and they put them
out only on the weekends
when they know city code
enforcement officers are off
duty. I have asked several
agents if .their brokers are
aware of the illegality of these
signs and they confirmed to


me that they are.
Perhaps Mr. Forbes, our city
manager, would authorize
~one officer Saturday duty in
place of another day off to
,remove these signs and others
advertising various sales
events that litter our city on
the weekends. Or better yet,
the council could declare
such signs litter and any citi-
zen could remove them as
they would any other form of
litter.
It is shameful that: people
litter but it seems to be a way
of life for some. Thanks to
the many organizations and
individuals who go out of
their way to make our city a
more desirable place. to live

OPINION


The Leader's Opinion

Clinic cooperative

showcases the spirit,

heart of community

Millions of Americans have no health insur-
ance. Millions more have health insurance that
provides minimal coverage while emptying the
uhserluesc red and underinsured are the
focus of significant public debate and hand

wne p litical arena has, to date, afforded no
solutions nationwide or statewide.
Locally, however, a consortium of business,
civic and religious organizations has formed to
tackle the problem directly. With virtually no
rhetoric or posturing, the group has quietly been
working toward a solution to help neighbors in
need.
The result will soon be a clinic that promises to
provide routine medical care for the needy -
includino famline is expected to be better health
for more people once the clinic is operational in
coming months.
That means there should be fewer people get-
ting critically ill because they lacked routine
care.
It also means hospital emergency rooms will
not be clogged by those who could have been
treated sooner elsewhere at a substantial say-
ings..
Plans for the clinic both its physical and fis-
cal operations in south Jacksonville Beach- are
still being nailed down.
Organizers are clearly enthused about the proj-
ect., This is an example of neighbors helping
neighbors and a project that promises to ulti-
mately benefit the entire community.

A group of neighbors
formed a committee and
requested $2,500 from the
city to landscape the Sixth
Street beach access, but sever-
al residents said they were
opposed to various aspects of
the project.
Resident Don F~ord said that
he did not have a problem
with the concept of beautifi-
cation, but was concerned
that some citizens either did
not know about the project or


were not notified properly, he
said at Monday's meeting.
"Posting and notifying citi-
zens of Sixth Street has been a
problem with this project
from the beginning," he said.
Other citizens had concerns
about obstructing beach views
and that the landscaping
would make the area less
accessible to the public.
One resident, who said he
works with sex offenders,
expressed concern that heavy
foliage and barriers could
make the area less safe.
The proposed plan included
irrigation, Sabal and
Washingtonian Palms, Muhly
grass and Pittisporum.

"The worst is yet to come,

Hi-ho, the dario,

As the recruits repeated
the customized chorus to
"The Farmer in the Dell,"
members of the Corps'

water,
"Wet shoes. Wet shoes,"

good company via her chil-
dren's story in which the
young characters become
intrigued with flying.
In the brief book, "Magical
Adventures in Your Own
Backyard," Delores Suggs-
Marshall has created an cute
imagirgative yarn wherein the
setting is the back yard at her
grandchildren's home, embel- -
lished by` fairy-attracting bird
feeders.
For the book, the author
uses the pen name, "Ganma,"
a childlike mispronunciation
of "Grandma," originated by
one of her grandchildren.
"I didn't get an option, "the
author told me. "She called
me that from the time she was
able to talk." The author said
that using it for a nom de
plume was "kind of catchy."
Models for the lead roles in
the story were three of her
grandkids, ages 8, 9, and 10.
STheir,pqursual fj6St paygS.~Veh47%,,
;,-ase~d, r esp~ecti\el \:~ Brea, C m^an i.;
and Kenya. The book is dedi-
cated to all nine of her grand-
children.
"The children's book is


and the adv~entures they
incur," said Suggs-Marshall.
The fairies, being winged
and capable of flight, were
drawn to the bird feeders,
which were also being visited
by hummingbirds. The young-
sters began to interact with
the fairies, and the fantasy
proceeded. The author's' prac-
tice of employing unique
given names continued, as the
fairies were called Takcee,
Goefcee and other equally
novel monikers.
In building the tale, the
author manages to include
some rules for juvenile behav-
ior, e.g., they were allowed to
amuse themselves "...only
when homework and chores
were all done," the author
.writes.
She also infused some child-
like foibles that so often show
up in the relations among sib-
lings. Iri our interview, she
referred to the coverage in the
book of "...all the bickering
and conniving that goes on
between sisters...." The con-
flict of overdevelopment and
the natural environment is
indicated, too.
The flitting of fairies around
the bird feeders might be con-
sidered symbolic of the situa-
tion. According to the author,
the book will be available
through www.publishameri-
ca.com, and book stores on
May 5,

Cont. from A-8
A graduate of the Henry
Ford Culinary College pro-
gram, Gonzalez described
himself as an "old school
chef." He learned the tradi-
tional way and according to
him "the classics remain the
classics."
However, Gonzalez also
embraces change, and is
enthusiastic about continu-
ing to learn and grow in his
field.
The general public, he
said, is better educated about
food today and more willing
to try new ingredients and
new preparations.
"This is a very exciting
time for anyone in the culi-
nary field," he added.
At home, Gonzalez enjoys
cooking for his family or
cooking with them. He said
he is just as enthusiastic
about dinner at home as he
is for preparing a banquet for
500 guests at the clubhouse.
"I can still get excited
about grocery shopping," he
said.
Choosing the best ingredi-
ents, such as high quality
tomatoes and herbs, and
paying attention to details,
such as making sure bacon is
ree"l foisd is se adifferncoed
enough and those that are
superior, he adds.
Now that The Players is in
May instead of March,
Gonzalez said that he prefers
to offer lighter dishes to the
golfers and their families. He
said fresh fish will be served
every day.
"Mango Salsa can, be used
on a number of different
fish," Gonzalez added.
"I like to sear either
grouper or Florida snapper
seasoned lightly with black-
ening spice until bronze in
color. Your favorite blend is
usually best and topped with
the salsa the fresher the bet-
ter," he said.
He also goes beyond basic
tuna salad with his Tuna and
Chick Pea Salad. This dish is
made with macadamia nuts,
raisins, and fi~esh basil.

The following are recipes
Gonzalez will serve to the PGA
Tour players and their families
during tournament week.

Mango Salsa

3 mangos, small dice
2 small red bell peppers,
bjrunoise
one-half red onion,
brunoise
1 tbs. cilantro, minced
2 t s. ride vinegar
1 tbs. olive oil
S&rP to taste
brunoise
A mixture of vegetables
that~have been finely diced
or shredded, then cooked
slowly in butter.

  • "Lifeguards have to deal
    with nausea on the beach."
    At 6:25 a.m., Fosch, wear-
    ing a black hooded sweat-
    shirt from his days as a
    pararescue trainee, entered
    the chilly classroom and
    scolded the recruits for tak-
    ing so long to complete their
    written exam.
    "Are you guys sandbagging
    This test to get a good long
    rest?" Posch said.
    Ruggiero finished the test
    first at 6:26 a.m. Woodcock
    was second at 6:27.
    At 6:30 a.m., the recruits
    were ordered to grab shovels
    and dig a large trench on the
    beach, as the sun rose over
    the ocean.
    E One by one, Posch sum-
    moned them to the station
    .to perform a variety of C=PR
    procedures while being pelt-
    ed with water balloons.
    "We call this.'the storm,' "
    the former pararescue swim-
    mer explained.
    At 7:15 a.m., the recruits
    finished digging a hole large
    enough to bitry a -small car.
    Five minutes later, sweat-
    soaked and sandy, they were
    summoned back to the class-
    room to take their final writ-
    ten exam on the Corps' by-
    laws.
    As they entered, 1st regis-
    trar T.J. Kline passed out
    more of the disgusting lim-
    burger cheese, which has an
    Sodor of smelly feet.
    As the recruits slumped
    over their tests, Posch hand-
    ed, each a granola bar.
    "Be thankful that we don't
    serve you McDonald's any-
    more," he cracked without a
    smile.
    "Eat lightly. You'll be! going
    in the water again."
    "Sir," asked Morris. "Can I
    eat this cheese?"
    "Sure," one of the test
    monitors said, "if you want
    to."
    Morris did, but her game
    face showed little emotion.
    Ruggiero, shivering while
    taking the by-laws test, was
    Sthe first to finish at 8:01 a.m.
    She scored a class-high 95.
    Bohn, chided earlier by
    Posch for forgetting to bring
    his water bottle to class, was
    showing signs of exhaustion,
    He scored a failing grade of
    60 on th~e by-laws test, for-
    getting to complete an entire
    page.
    Kline gave Bohn a second
    chance to retake the test, and
    he passed.
    The recruits, minus Morris,
    who left for detention, fell in
    line on the bulkhead f6r
    more sit-ups. Then they were
    led to the beach for a final
    round of ocean rescues.
    .Behind schedule, Posch
    scraped a paddleboard race
    to the pier so the recruits
    could prepare for their


    "skits."
    Secretly, they may be -
    thinking "the worst is almost
    done."
    But they were wrong.
    After their "skits," the
    recruits, still minus Morris,
    lined up on the bulkhead.
    Draped in clean white sheets,
    they attracted a crowd of
    curious onlookers.
    Kline smeared liberal
    amounts of Crisco shorten-
    ing into their hair. Ruggiero's
    new spikey hairdo resembled
    that of Lady Liberty.
    At 11:30 p.m., food was
    served.
    Recrtlits were forced to eat
    more nasty food, such as
    chicken breast with a strange
    orange dressing.
    Most threw up, but kept
    eating.
    Then, the so-called "blue
    plate special" was brought
    out. The mystery food,
    served on paper plates, trig-
    gerd another round of puk-
    ing,
    "Not on the public, .
    WalleY," instructor Rick
    Foster quipped. .
    "Finish slow or finish fast,
    but finish all of it," veteran
    lifegllard' Matt Duffy added.
    "It's one of thie few things
    seagulls won't eat." ,
    ~At 11:55, Morris returned
    and took her place at the
    food trough.
    "We saved one for yrou,"
    Foster told her. -
    Around noon, Po~sch decid-
    ed the trench the recruits
    dug for more than an hour
    won't be needed~for the
    greased pole fights that his-
    torically cap "test Saturday."
    Instead, two lifeguard
    chairs were dragged to waist-
    deep surf and a galvanized
    pipe was strung between
    them.
    Two at the time, the
    recruits climbed onto the
    greased pole for rousing pil-
    low fights.
    After all the recruits took
    turns, Posch led them down
    the beach for one last bit of
    training: a swim around the
    pier.
    When they emerged from
    the water and were led back
    to the station around 1 p.m.,
    they were greeted with a new
    chorus.

    "The worst is finally done,
    the worst is finally done,
    Hi-ho, Ruggiero, .
    the worst is finally done."

    After more than nine con-
    secutive hours of training,
    lifeguard captain Thom
    Wright, a former instructor,
    told the Corps' six new life-
    guards to remcive their
    recruit signs from around
    their necks.
    "You are now recruit surf-
    men," he added.








    Dave and Amy Pearson of
    Jacksonville announce the
    birth of a son, Colby David
    Pearson, on April 3, 2008, at
    Baptist Medical Center
    Beaches.
    He was 7 pounds, 3 ounces
    and was 19.5 inches long.
    Paternal grandparents are
    John and Mariali Pearson of
    Neptune Beach.


    Ruggiero, tabbed the most
    improved recruit midway
    through the three-month
    course, grinned from ear to
    ear,
    She was the first to receive
    her $90 Corps swimsuit, duf-
    fel bag, decal and key to the
    station.
    The night before, all six
    recruits survived~their make-
    or-break pool test at Fletcher
    High School, a defining
    moment in the 12-week-long
    recruit course.
    "The reality hasn't hit me,"
    Ruggiero said Saturday after-
    noon,
    "I felt like no matter how
    hard it got today, I kept
    telling myself I got through
    pool test. It was hard, but if
    it wasn't, I wouldn't feel this
    good right now. I'm pretty
    stoked."
    Woodcock, who shined on
    written exa~lks but had to
    work on the phyrsical aspects
    of lifegu'arding, was amazed
    she got through it.
    "I wanted it froin day one,-
    `but !Iilever thought I cauld
    get in," the former gynanast
    and cheerleader said. .
    "I just worked at it. Every
    tinie I came to~the station, I
    tried as hard as I could. It
    feels really good to be stand-
    ing here right now."
    Bohn, the oldest of the
    group, said he started prepar-
    ing himself mentally for
    recruit training a month
    before it began on Sunday,
    Jan. 27.
    Bohn grew up with a few
    lifeguards in the Corps, but
    said that hurt him more than
    helped him.
    "They made me work 10
    times harder," he said.
    S"Knowing people in the
    Corps won't get you in. I
    wanted it pretty bad. Words
    can't describe how I feel
    right now."
    Before his six former
    recruits were dismissed'
    Foster, who earned an engi-
    neering degree ~in college and
    works as a project manager
    for a major construction
    firm, gave them a final piece
    of advice.
    "Don't quit asking ques-
    tions," Foster, a member of
    the 1996 winter recruit class,
    said.
    "You have a lot to be
    proud of."
    Next week: The 10-part '
    series ends with a look at the
    2008 summer recruit class,
    which meets at 9 a.m.

    tion.
    For them, the worst is truly
    yet to cime..

    sets of pushups and sit-ups
    and even carried one another
    on their backs. .
    "Are you going to slow us
    down all day, Woodcock?"
    Posch yelled.
    "If that's the case, then
    we'll do some more dead-
    weight carries."
    Later, as the recruits did
    "6-inch killer" sit-ups in the
    70-degree surf, Posch gave
    Morris a little extra incen-
    tive.
    "With the special situation
    we have with you today,
    Morris, you better rise up
    above the rest,"' Posch said.
    The No. 2 singles player on
    her high school tennis team,
    Morris was reluctantly
    excused for a portion of
    Saturday's training so she
    Could serve out three hours
    of detention.
    Around 5:15 a.m., an emer-
    gency buzzer sounded at the
    station, signaling a "night
    .case." For the recruits, still
    dripping with sweat and salt
    wc~ater, the mnosl k rlll me~nt
    more sw-imming In the pitch-
    black ocean. .
    Beyond the quarter-mile-
    long Jacksonville Beach pier,
    six lifeguards served as vic-
    tims, while the recruits
    Grabbed fins and torpedo
    buoys.
    From a lifeguard truck,
    Posch shined a searchlight
    into the ocean to illuminate
    the victims.
    At 5:31 a.m., Ruggiero, a
    competitive surfer, pulled the
    first victim to shore, fol-
    Slowed closely by Meskel and
    IDelossantos.
    At 5:50 a.m., two life-
    guards serving as in'capacitat-
    ed victims were loaded into
    the back of the truck ahd
    transported to the station.
    "You guys are task-saturat-
    ed nOw," Posch told the
    recruiits. "But I want this
    truck hosed down and
    cleaned in the next 10 min-
    utes."
    At 6 a.m., the recruits, still
    soaking wet, were led to a
    classroom to take their first
    of two final written exams.
    "Fail this test, and it's
    goodbye," said Ca'ssaro, a
    three-year member of the
    Corps with three unassisted
    rescues.
    Before the recruits entered
    the classroom, each was
    handed chunks of limburger
    cheese to put in their -
    mouths and up their nostrils.
    Once known as "the work-
    ing man's lunch," the stinky
    chunks of white cheese have
    a role in recruit training, -
    according to assistant
    instructor Demian Harris.
    "Nasty food has a pur-
    pose," said Harris, the com-
    modore, or elected leader, of
    the 2006 winter recruit class.

    One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating

    W~elcomles Home One of Its Own


    Craig Eddy Jr. is back from Kuwait and
    Iraq after serving a tour of duty with the.
    Naval Reserves and he is eager to get back in
    his One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating
    van to serve this community as your air
    conditioning service provider. One Hour
    Air, located at 1198 Mayport Road, Suite 11,
    is a family-owned and operated business.
    When the call to duty comes, it affects the
    family in a number o'f ways. Craig's absence'
    affected not only the family but the busi-
    ness as wenl.
    "The entire team at One Hour Air depends
    on each other greatly," says Dee Eddy.
    "When ones away it is felt by everyone. -
    The team members pulled together and car-
    ried on and we felt as though we were doing ?
    our part to serve this country'while'Craig
    was away." That is behind them now, and sBD
    Craig is back and ready to serve the cus-
    tomers of One Hour Air. .
    Craig and his parents, Eddy and Dee,
    share one singular: mission: to provide cus- With the mol

    you. While "on-time service" is a common phrase, it is
    generally not practiced. Together, One Hlour ~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, "Always On Time ... Or You
    Don't Pay a Dime!@ .
    "You know how you call a liVAC technician; then wait
    days or weeks, for him or her to show up?" Craig explains.
    "Frustrating, isn't it? Well, we think wasting your time is
    a crime. We're One Hour Air Conditioning &r 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 we're
    Alw ys On Time Or You Don't Pay A Dime!".
    "We 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 con-
    cerned, and they get it right where the work is concerned.
    "We're proud of the top-quality, professional services

    By ROBERT DeANGELO
    SPORTS EDITOR
    This one had to hurt most
    of all.
    After losing to Mandarin
    four times already this season,
    the Fletcher High softball
    team figured it
    had finally
    turned the tide
    with a two-run
    lead heading
    into the bot-
    tom of the sev.
    enth inning of
    last Friday's
    regional semifi-
    nal.
    But it was
    not to be as
    the host
    Mustangs ral-
    lie fo thee This [lo!
    last at-bats to Worst ..

    dtt:o dow innings, w~
    to defeat for a fiVe OUtS. S
    fifth time this beat a gool
    season, this
    one by a 6-5 we're givin
    count. outs and n
    Fletcher
    seemed to be TOutine plal
    coasting with
    a 3-0 lead
    through four --
    'and a half
    innings before Chriis
    Mandarin (25- Sensatos
    2) played
    small ball and
    took advantage of sonie
    Senators mistakes.
    With one out in the~ bottom
    of the fifth, Mustangs batter
    Katy Black bunted down the
    third base line to get aboard.
    Clara Kenldall then laid down -
    another bunt intended as a
    sacrifice but reached 'safely on
    a` throwing error, putting
    Mandarin runners on second
    and third. .
    A sacrifice fly. brought Black
    home to make It 3-i arid
    Michelle hioultrre's triple p~lat-


    ed Kendall. A well-executed
    relay throw from Fletcher out-
    fielder Katie Satterfield to sec-
    ond baseman Bridget Carey to
    catcher Brooke Peaver cut
    dowa Moultrie at the plate as
    she tried to stretch her three-
    base hit into
    an inside-the-
    park home
    run.
    That left
    things at 3-2
    and it
    appeared the
    Senators had
    dodged a dis-
    : astrous
    inning.

    allowed Carter to score and
    knot the game at 3-all before a
    ground ball out ended the
    inning.
    While the Senators could
    have been defatetd by the turn
    of events, players instead
    responded with a rally.

    Fletcher 1-igh head coach Christina Flores discusses defense with, frort left, catcher' Brooke Peaver, first baseman Madison Harris,
    shortstop Kelly Wilson, second baseman Bridget Carey and pitcher Erin Schuppert after Mandarin tied last Friday's night s regional
    semifinal at 3-all in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Mustangs rallied in the seventh for a 6-5 victory, ending Fletcher's season.


    played resulting iix Mustangs
    on first and third with no
    outs.
    Kendall stole second, put-
    ting the tying runs in scoring
    position for Kelly, who
    clubbed a two-run double to
    make it 5-all.
    Mioultrie followed with a
    drive to right that sailed over
    Satterfield's head, enabling


    Kelly to score the game-wiin-
    ning run for Mandarin.
    "This [loss] was the worst,"
    said Senators head coach
    Christina Flores. "Not only~
    did we have the lead --- we
    scored two rn~s in thle first -
    and then in the sixth inning '
    we regained the lead with two
    more runs, but they're a very
    good team and TknowY in two


    innings we gave them five
    outs. So it's tough to beat a
    good team when we're giving
    them extra outs and not mak-
    ing the routine plays."
    - Flores also noted that over
    the course of five games this
    season Mustangs batters have
    become very familiar wPith
    Fletcher starting pitcher Erin
    Schuppert, and were able to
    wait for pitches they liked, in
    the latter innings.
    Despite the disappointment
    of losing to Mandanin five
    tinues and seeing their season
    come to an abrupt end, Flores
    hopes in time players will real-
    ize they made great strides
    this spring.
    "We werit farther than we
    have in at least five years," she
    said. "We had a great season.
    We're 20-8, and five of those .
    losses were to the same team.
    And again, some of those were
    one-run ,ballgames.
    "We have to work more on
    focus and getting the routine
    outs."
    With only two seniors
    (Madiion Harris and Dana
    Deal) on the team, and a
    nucleus of players that are
    involved in travel ball
    throughout the year, Flores
    knows she'll have a potent,
    experienced ballclub in 2009.
    "We have players that have
    been in big games before but
    it just didn't work out for us
    tonight," she said.
    S"Obviously they're upset but
    two things are key: We had a
    great season and we're just
    gOing tO prepare that much
    more for next year. The future
    is bright."


    bunt down, Kelly Wilson? sin-
    gled to load the bases.
    Brooke Peaver followed with
    a two-run single, gwing the
    Senators a 5-3 advantage and
    needing only three outs to
    extend their season.
    In the home half of the sev-
    enth, Black again bunted to
    get on and Kendall: followed

    The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


    "offer" from Miami for Jason
    Taylor, who is 33 and won't be
    any younger next season, was
    wise despite what some well-
    coiffed "experts" are saying.
    Why give up so much (future
    draft picks) for an aging star as
    a temporary fix to an ongoing
    problem?
    Some of the best deals are
    those that are never made.
    As it is, the Jaguars still paid
    a steep price to move up and
    draft Harvey, but there's a big
    difference: Derrick's future is
    still ahead of him while
    Taylor's best days may be
    behind him.
    D'el Rio has repeatedly said
    he's tired of hearing about
    how many times New England
    Patriots QB Tom Brady threw
    against Jacksoliville when the
    teams met in last year's play-
    offs. And Jaguars players
    should be even more weary of
    hearing about it. But they
    committed the crime and
    doing the time of hearing
    about it goes with the territo-
    ry.
    It's good that the Jaguars'
    shortcomings aren't forgotten.
    If Jacksonville hopes to get to
    th-at pot of gold known as the
    Super Bowl it's going rto be a
    costly trip.
    It's been pointed out that
    that one reason the New York
    Giants could handle the Pats
    so easily while the Jaguars
    seemed out of their league is
    that Jacksonville sacked Brady
    only once. The Giants bagged.
    Tom Terrific five times. *
    New York won, 17-14, for
    one of the biggest upsets in
    Super Bowl history.
    Jacksonville lost, 30-21, and
    did well to keep it that close.
    The big difference is that
    Brady was put out of business
    in the NFL's grandest game..


    be compared to
    Christmas morn when
    the little monsters take inven-
    tory to see if old Santa came
    through with the goodies he
    promised,
    The Jacksonville Jaguars
    Pleased themselves with what
    they got in defensive end
    Derrick Harvey.
    The Jags were pleased but
    the local media was absolutely
    thrilled silly. Local experts
    haven't been this giddy since
    Jacksonville signed quarterback
    Byron Leftwich, the superstar
    we were told would make the
    public forget Mark Brunell.
    But this draftee is even bet-
    ter. Harvey is a former Florida
    Gator. What can be more glori-
    ous than adding a former
    wearer of the Orange and Blue
    to a happy little family?
    The Jaguars also nabbed
    defensive end Quentin Groves
    of Auburn, who has, reported-
    ly, muscles on top of his mus-
    cles. That's nice, but it doesn't
    compare with getting a Gator,
    right?
    Florida coach Urban Meyer,
    Harvey's mentor last season,
    has told close buddy Jack Del
    Rio that Harvey is okay, not
    wanted by the police, FBI or
    CIA, doesn't eat crackers in
    bed, doesn't smoke (Jaguars
    frown on smoking, you know)
    or have other bad habits. So he
    passes the Jaguars character
    test.
    Still, you can't be too careful
    these days.
    As~ everyone outside of the
    most remote Eskimo village
    knows by now, Jacksonville
    has been sorely in need of
    good pass-rushers. Even a bad
    pass-rusher would help.
    Enemy quarterbacks get all
    the help they need from


    Photo by ROB DeANGELO
    Florida defensive linenian Derrick Harvey pressures Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford during
    their game last October. Harvey was the Jacksonville Jaguars top draft choice last Saturday.


    Even the greatest ball-thrower
    can't beat you if you don't let
    him. That's why the Jaguars
    were so determined to find at
    least one head-hunter in this
    draft.
    Other positions should get
    attention as well as the
    defense, but Del Rio's philoso-
    phy is "first things first."
    Backup quarterback? Sure.
    More depth along the offen-
    sive line? Why not. Attention


    paid to the kicking game?
    We'll keep that in mind.
    But things that ain't broke


    now shouldn't be messed with.
    Fix the pass-rushing now,
    please.

    Beaches Fine Arts


    Series offers prep d

    session for triathlon

    Beaches Fine Arts Series hosted a Duathlon
    on April 19 at the Town of Nocatee. The
    Duathlon, a 2-mile run, followed by a 12
    mile bike, followed by a 2-mile run, was a
    new race for Beaches Fine Arts Series, which
    annually hosts a Sprint Triathlon Series as a
    benefit for its free fine arts programs.
    Approximately 175 athletes participated in ~
    the race under clear skies and perfect condi-
    tions. The course, designed by Steve Curran,.
    was described by athletes as both beautiful
    and functional. The race took place in the
    community of Coastal Oaks, with some of .
    the bike course on Palm Valley Road and
    Crosswater Parkway. The pre and post race .Isi~
    activities took place in the Riverwood com-uit.8
    Overall male winners were Justin Jacobs,
    Jacksonville at 52:23; Joseph Sindad, St. B
    Augustine at 55.'23; Steve Pettit, Atlantic t
    Beach at 55:38. Overall female winners were~i
    Colleen Nicoulin, Port Orange at 1:01:14;
    Kellie Smirnoff, Jacksonville at 1:03:31; ~iz
    Boudreaux, Atlantic Beach at 1:05:54.
    Bike Fitters of Ponte Vedra Beach donated a
    Kuota K Factor Full Carbon Frameset valued
    at $1799 and the winner was John Snow of
    Ponte Vedra Beach.
    The Beaches Fine Arts Duathlon was a pre-
    Itxde to the Lifestyles Realtors Beaches Fine
    Arts Sprint Triathlon Series (BFAST), which
    begins on May ~17 at Mickler's Landing in
    Ponte Vedra Beach.
    "We felt that presenting a duathlon prior
    to our triathlons would encourage people to
    train and would offer a chance for those who
    are uncomfortable with the swim portion of
    the triathlons to participate in a race without
    a swim," said Liza Bowcock, Race Director for
    the Duathlon. "For new racers as well as
    experienced ones, we will host our annual
    Triathlon Clinic at Cannaday Building on the
    Mayo Clinic campus on Thursday, May 1
    from 7-9 p.m."
    The clinic will focus on concepts of
    triathlon, including race day preparations,
    equipment setup, and nutrition. The clinic
    will feature the Mayo sports medicine doc-
    tors along with experienced triathletes who
    will share tips and experiences. There will be
    tireak-out sessions for both novices and more
    experienced triathletes. ~
    This clinic is followed on Saturday, May 3,
    at 8 a.m with a hands-on triathlon tutorial
    hosted by Hammerhead Racing at Mickler's
    Landing, the site of our races. For informa-
    tion about either of these clinics or the
    triathlon series, call 270-2074.
