New complex to

serve south JB as

'beacon of hope'

An aging youth activity
center serving children in the
South Pablo Beach communi-
ty will soon be replaced with
a new facility.
The City Council Monday
reviewed plans for a new
Carver Center at 730 4th
Avenue South.
The new building 'was
designed as a "beacon of
hope" for the community
and reflect the efforts of the
staff who work to create a
positive environment for the
"The idea is not only to
rebuild the Carver Center but
to make the park much more
usable," City Manager George
Forbes said. "I'm really
wowed by the concept."
The 6,100-square-foot proj-
ect will nearly double the size
of the existing building and
will include two pavilions, a
jogging trail and improved
ball fields with new dugouts
and spectator seating.
"It's like a mini-Latham
Plaza. It will be a much more
user friendly park for the
entire community because
that is who it is for," Forbes
said. "This is more than just
building a building."
Mayor Fland Sharp said he
considered the Carver Center
a top priority when he first
took office.
"That was my goal from
the beginning," he said, not-
ing that the city's rocky
financial landscape shelved
the project. for nearly four
years. "We are finally able to
pull this off. This is our last
shot at doing something like
this in Jacksonville Beach."

Norman said the octagonal
shape of the new facility was
designed to be reminiscent of
a lighthouse beacon and its
helpful signal.
"It is a catalyst for change
in the community," he said.
"It is respectful of its environ-
ment but it is also fun, play-
ful and durable. It will be a
multigenerational park."
Councilman Rick Knight
said he hopes that the new
facility will encourage chil-
dren to strive to be the best
they can be.
"This is far better than I
ever expected," he said. "It
will help make those kids bet-

Budget options for next year
are being developed in Atlantic
Beach and all involve spending
less money.
City Manager Jim Hanson has
started to prepare a preliminary
budget for fiscal year 2008/09 -
which will include a list of
optional reductions, he said
"We're just starting to see
what the landscaping for the
state [budget] looks like," he
said, explaining that the legisla-
ture reduced the tax base when
it hiked the homestead exemp-
tion. The city will lose revenues
if it stays at the same rate
because of the tax digest reduc-
tion, according to Hanson.
As lIanson begins to "put the
numbers together" he plans to
present a number of options for
reductions to the City
Some options could include
reducing or eliminating long-
term capital projects, service
reductions, cutting operating
costs.- such as reducing salaries
and benefits without losing
services and possibly "tighten-
ing the belt" on employee bene-
fits, Hanson said.
The cost of the city's group
insurance plan, for example, is
expected to rise 17 percent and
Hanson said that the the city
may look into different types of
coverage or increasing employ-
ees' co-pay.
"I do anticipate having a diffi-
cult time balancing the budget

tors are not good, but it is still
During last year's budget
workshops, the previous City
Commission reduced the budget
by $600,000. Hanson will pres-
ent the options to the
Commission in July.

Divided JB city council reviews term

limit impact on mayoral candidates

Jax Beach council agrees to not

change its sign ordinance

Nearly 20 years after establishing term limits
for elected seats in Jacksonville Beach, city offi-
cials are weighing a change that would allow
elected officials to spend more time in office.
City Councilor Penny Christian Monday at a
City Council workshop proposed changing the
City Charter to give elected officials more time
in office..
Christian, who recently announced her plans
to seek reelection, said allowing elected officials
to serve two consecutive terms on the council
followed by two consecutive terms as mayor, if
elected, gives them ample time to learn the
ropes and fulfill campaign goals.
"It was a learning curve for me. I had things
I wanted to accomplish and I feel like a better
council person," she said. "It was a real eye
opener. This is simply an opportunity for a per-
son to grow."
Councilman Tom Taylor, who is entering his
second year in office, said he is finally feeling
comfortable with his role and the responsibili-
ty it brings.
"Being a new councilor it takes a while to get
your feet wet," he said.
Others on the council said the proposed
charter amendment could also be an opportu-
nity for some elected officials to overstay their
"I see some people running in office for an
inordinate amount of time [and that] bothers
me. We could have a person serve for eight
years on the city council and another eight
years as mayor. That's 16 years," councilor Lee
Buck said. "It is something to think about."
Councilman Steve Hartkemeyer said he
agreed that "16 years seems like an awfully long
time," especially considering that the charter
was amended as a citizen referendum.
"The citizens voted in 1990 for term limits,"
he said. "We owe it to the citizens to let them
City Manager George Forbes said any pro-

posed change to the charter would require the
vote of citizens. He asked the council for direc-
tion before moving ahead to draft an ordinance
for public hearing.
"I don't want it to get killed," councilman
Rick Knight said. "I just want more input."
Forbes said the change is "more complicated
than it sounds" with all of the legal questions
related to partial term limits.
Former Mayor Bob Marsden sought the
opportunity to run for what he considered a
second full term in office because he took over
the seat after his predecessor Bill Latham died
while in office.
"It is not as easy as you think. If we are going
to redo it we need to make it more clear because
otherwise it's a waste of time," Mayor Fland
Sharp said. "If we are going to change it let's
clarify it."
Sharp said despite serving two terms on the
City Council before being elected as mayor he
was unaware of the challenges associated with
that position.
"I understood what it meant to a certain
extent but it was definitely a learning process
for the first six months," he said. "It is a differ-
ent playing field."
Sharp said if the council opts to move for-
ward with the charter amendment, there is no
time table to implement the change.
"Nothing moves forward at this time because
it doesn't have to move forward now," he said
Tuesday. "There is no sense of urgency in my
Sharp served on the City Council in 1989
when the term limits were established in
Jacksonville Beach ahead of any other cities in
Northeast Florida, he said.
"We were first in the county to do it and we
were real adamant about it. There is no doubt
that it has worked well so far," he said.
"There are good arguments on both sides.
There is no doubt that it has worked well so far.
We just want to get input from the community
and see where that takes us.".

lights will be removed from
the medians and relocated to
the side of the road.
The lights will be similar to
the style used in the down-
town district.
New sidewalks with
stamped, colored concrete
with coquina shell will give
the sidewalks a "plank, board-
walk look" in keeping with
the beach theme.
"It'will all pull together and
look very nice," Edwards said.

Forbes called the improve-
ment plan "an enormous
project and a costly one." The
FDOT will negotiate the price
with the contractor that will
complete the state paving
work and the city's schedule
of improvements.
Both the state and city
work are expected to take
nine months to complete.
The landscaping will begin
once the major paving and
roadwork is complete.

"This is a huge deal. We
[need] to make sure that there
are' no major hiccups with
this project because the train
is leaving the station," he
said. "
Edwards said he expects the
FDOT to award the bid to
complete the paving this
June. The project will be
under way in late fall or early
winter with a projected sum-
mer, 2009 completion date.

A proposed change to the
sign ordinance in
Jacksonville Beach was
shelved Monday after the
City Council deemed the
amendment unfair to some
Council member Lee Buck
initially suggested that the
ordinance be changed to
give new tenants the oppor-
tunity to install their names
on existing signs without
replacing a non conforming
In a workshop Monday,
members of the council dis-
cussed the ramifications of
changing the ordinance that
in the two years since it was
adopted has required the
compliance of dozens of
"It made sense that it
needed to be evaluated,"
Buck said. "Is it proper that
if one person moves out of a
six-unit strip center that the
new business can't put its
name on it?"
Buck said he asked
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff to
help clarify the language in
the ordinance that prohibits
such action.
The new sign ordinance
was enacted on April 3,
2006 and requires that pole
signs be replaced with a
monument sign at any time
that the sign needs mainte-
nance or other change.
According to the ordi-
nance, businesses with
existing pole signs must
obtain a building permit for
"additions, alterations or
improvements 'valued at
more than 50 percent of
the fair market value of the
structure or the building"
where any non conforming
sign exists."
To replace or modify a
sign, business owners are
required under the amend-
ed ordinance to replace a
free standing pole sign with
a monument sign.
Since it was adopted,
Buck said approximately 30
businesses have complied
with the city's require-
ments and several more are
"I was an advocate of the
sign law but time slips by.
It would be totally unfair to
the 30 that have complied
with the ordinance," he

said. "If we change the law
now, it puts those with
monument signs at a disad-
Buck said he employed
the strategy that he used
during his tenure on the
Board of Adjustment and
drove the length of the
Beaches to observe the
improvements by replacing
worn pole signs with monu-
ment signs.
"I put down all of the
pluses and minuses. When I
look at all of the progress in
the downtown area I have a
hard time at this date
changing this ordinance,"
he said. "I have never
received a single complaint
since April, 2006. Why did
it take until now to be
brought to our attention? I
think we should leave it as it
Councilor Steve
Hartkemeyer said he
recieved seven calls over the
weekend from citizens
regarding the proposed
change. Most people, he
said, didn't understand the
mechanics of the ordinance.
"It's a safety issue. The
issue with the high signs
came about with all the
storms several years ago," he
said. "At first I thought it
was unfair but now I look at
the beauty [of the monu-
ment signs] and the safety
and I'm glad we pulled back.
It's the right thing to do."
Councilman Rick Knight
also noted that the special
magistrate assigned to
decide the city's code
enforcement cases has the
authority to handle sign-

The Leader's Opinion

Objective measures

of program needed

Community policing is a popular term that
evokes images of a uniformed police officer
walking a beat, while swinging a night stick and
tipping his hat to shopkeepers and residents.
In St. Johns County, community policing has
another dimension.
A shift in assignments has been made so that
the sheriff's district commanders will get to bet-
ter know the various community groups and
their members.
Shift commanders who are on duty but not
busy on a call will be attending civic group
meetings throughout the county in order to
learn about residents' specific concerns first
At first blush, the plan would seem to have
some merit as all are better served when law
enforcement officials have a clear picture of a
community's concerns.
Maintaining the program could prove diffi-
cult as critics question the value of having
sworn law enforcement officers routinely sit-
ting through countless meetings in which zon-
ing skirmishes are aired and dry financial
reports are delivered.
Clearly the new initiative has some merit, but
objective measures will have to be developed to
measure the success - and cost of the pro-
gram before it continues indefinitely.

Wise move to help those less fortunate

To the editor:
Several years ago I wrote a
letter for The Beaches Leader,
encouraging those who could
afford to, to help those less for-
tunate financially. I am sur-
prised to get a vicious backlash
accusing me of being a igno-
rant socialist. In the sense that
Jesus was a socialist, urging us
to be our brother's keeper, I
guess that's true.
I started my letter to the edi-
tor by quoting my high school
civics teacher, Jules Bacot, in
1962. On the first day of class,
he drew a line on the black-
board, saying the haves were
on the one end and the have
not were on the other. The
haves, he said, tend to accu-
mulate wealth until the have
not have nothing to lose or
revolt. Will and Ariel Durant,
in the Lessons of History, also
propose this.
In light of the recent food
riots, this theory seems to have
merit. In its most basic form,
money is a measure of work. In

our complex society, that defi-
nition has been diluted, with
money, created by having
money and the government
printing money as it wishes.
I think my previous letter
was misinterpreted that I was
requiring those with wealth to
give it up by government man-
date. That was not the point at
all. By helping the financially
distressed, I don't believe in
giving money away. All mem-
bers of society need to have
access to quality education,
appropriate role modeling, and
wages with purchasing power
for a decent lifestyle to include
water, food, shelter, clothing,
transportation, security, health
care and education. Even if we
don't believe that we are our
brother's keeper, it is in all our
best interest to help those less
fortunate, if not for their sake,
for the sake of the system (soci-
ety) as a whole.

Plenty of sidewalks to be used elsewhere, not Roscoe

To the editor:
In answer to the "Roscoe
Sidewalk Committee":
Where in the world did
you come up with the idea
that Palm Valley was a city?
If you choose to live where
there are sidewalks,.1 suggest
you move to a different
Are you not aware how
dangerous it would be to
put sidewalks along such a
busy roadway? Have you
not seen the walkway and
bike path that the county
spent thousands of dollars
on that no one uses on
Solana? Did you not know
that there is a driveway
opening on to the highway
every 75 feet? Could you
explain to me how this
would make it more con-
venient, safer and raise
property values? Did you
not know that "the city"
whoever that may be, would
take about 20 to 25'feet of
your property setback? How
could this help raise your
property value? How does

convenience play a part in
this? Did you not know
that you would also have to
pay to have a culvert under
your driveway?
If you really want to walk,
jog or ride a bike, why don't
you jump in your car and go
up to A1A where there are
miles of sidewalks that are
set back from the busy high-
way about 25 feet. I am sure
they are just waiting for the
Director of Good Moral, the
Communications Director
and the General of Good
Health to make use of them.
Another idea would be to
join one of the many health
clubs and spas in the area.
Better yet, join our local
YMCA. They have all kinds
of health facilities plus a lap
pool. We are also blessed
with miles and miles of
beaches just waiting for you
to enjoy the salt air and
exercise at the same time.
But, I guess if you actually
used the beaches, there
would be no need for a
"sidewalk committee.'

With the recent reduction
of property taxes and all of
the budget cuts that this is
going to affect, where do
you suggest the money
come from? We are already
faced with cutbacks in the
most important part of our,
safety and protection, the
men and women that put
their life on the line for us
everyday our police and
fire fighters. Of course, if
we had sidewalks along
Roscoe and you-had a med-
ical emergency, fire in your
home or criminal on your
property, you could make it
all the better by running

placed there for your con-
venience to get out of harms

Commission must not fold on the ARC decision

To the editor:
The large number of
Ponte Vedra residents
appearing at the County
Commission Meeting on
April 30 may have caused
the developers of the
Shoppes at Veranda to re-
think their plan to bypass
the Ponte Vedra
Architectural Review
Committee (PV ARC). If the
signs at Veranda seem famil-
iar it is because in
November of 2006 the same
plan was turned down 5 0
by the Board of County
Commissioners (BCC).
Could it be that once again
we have a developer who

can't understand the word
The County Commission
has sent the developer back
to the ARC and requested a
recommendation on the sig-
nage proposal. According
to news reports, Veranda
representatives say the signs
they will propose are "mini-
malist and elegant." To
that I say, "Our ARC will be
the judge of that." The
Ponte Vedra ARC has done
an outstanding job protect-
ing the aesthetics of our
community. Developers
who attempt to circumvent
the established procedures
should be given a history

Everyone is so busy thinking
how great it would be to have

I am willing to bet that
most of the people who are
"giving kudos" to the
Jacksonville Port Authority,
are high class people that
make plenty of money and go

out to restaurants and eat
"Mayport" shrimp all the
time. People that obviously
have more money .than they
do sense.
Did you ever stop to think
about the families that
depend, on the shrimping
industry? The CHILDREN
that depend on the shrimp-
ing industry to eat and pay
the bills to keep a roof over
their heads. The older
shrimpers who can't get any
other job because shrimping
is all they know and they are
top old to learn anything else
and too young to collect

people to do?. The families

Dusty Rhodes told his
inaugural University of

to keep in touch long after
their playing days ended at
Harmon Stadium.
Ron Natherson, a member
of the 1988 Ospreys and the
2008 volunteer chairman of
The Players Championship,

After graduating from UNF
in 1990 with a degree in
finance, Natherson, a Ponte
Vedra Beach resident, helped
launch an Osprey baseball
alumni club that still
remains active to this day.
I "We had our 20th anniver-
sary celebration this year,"
said Natherson, a former
starting second baseman on
the '88 Osprey squad that set
a national record for wins by
a first-year program.
"Dusty told us to appreci-
ate the time that we had and
this keeps the bond going."
Natherson played only one
season for the Ospreys before
shoulder and knee injuries
sidelined him as a senior.
He played two years of
baseball at Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville, and was a mem-
ber of FCCJ's 1987 World
Series team.
"Most of the guys I got
that first year were junior
college guys," said Rhodes,

47 games, including 21 in a

In 1994, longtime Osprey
Club supporter Gerry Hurst
asked Natherson to join the
volunteer ranks of The
Players Championship.
For the past five years,
Natherson has served as
either chairman or first vice

class, is one of six new lifeguards for the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corps.

New recruits sign up

for '08 summer class

(Final part of a series)

Fourteen aspiring life-
guards ranging in age from
16 to 32 showed up for sum-
mer recruit class orientation
Sunday at the Jacksonville
Beach lifeguard station.
Seated in white folding
chairs in the station's first-
floor meeting room, the
recruits, mostly high school
and college students, sat qui-
etly as instructor Rick Foster
of the American,Red Cross
Volunteer Life Saving Corps
passed out paperwork.
"Does anyone have any
vacations planned this sum-
mer? Foster asked the group,
masking a smile.
It was a rhetorical ques-
"This course is not going
to be easy," Foster said. ,
"I can only let you miss

Sunday, May 18, with the
first of 12 scheduled training
On Sunday, the recruits
were shown a promotional
film tracing the history of
the Corps from its inception
in 1912.
They took a tour of the 60-
year-old lifeguard station and
climbed a winding stairway
to the iconic "peg," or obser-
vation tower.
They also learned that
there are stringent physical
requirements to remain in
recruit training, and that a
battery of written tests will
be administered.
"By week six, you'll need
to swim 500 meters in under
10 minutes and run the mile
in under eight," Foster said.
"A failing grade [on writ-
ten exams] is 80."
As the recruits filled out
paperwork, a shift change
was occurring in the station's
bustling boat room.
Ambng the lifeguards
reporting for the 10 a.m. roll
call were five of the six grad-
uates from Foster's 2008 win-
ter recruit class.
"I like being a mentor,"
Foster said.

"This is something I've
always wanted to do since I
got into the Corps [in 1996].
To see them better them-
selves is the best reward I
can get."
A project manager for a
major construction firm and
an electrical engineering
graduate of Tulane
University, Foster, 28, is one
of three officers in the Corps.
Only Capt. Thom Wright
outranks him.

The instructor and the
assistant instructor are
required, to volunteer every

early August. They also
attend weekly staff meetings
at the station.
"I knew it was going to be
a lot of work," Foster said
Sunday as five of the 14 new
recruits swam their first time
trials at the Fletcher High
"We're trying to get good
members who will contribute
to the community.
"A leader [of the class] will
emerge quickly."

adjunct professor.
Now the vice president of

for Southern Oak Insurance

But he won't hang up his
ceremonial blazer, also
known as a "red coat," any
time soon.
"It's a fraternity of broth-

ers and sisters," said Hurst,
the captain of the red coats
this year.
"We take golf trips each

You don't get into this with
the ultimate goal of being

up anymore for the annual

and tender, he said.
Whole or half chickens take
about four hours to cook with
barbecue sauce added only in

Herring sometimes grills
corn in the husk along with
the main course. After soak-
ing the corn for an hour in
salt water, it is grilled for
about an hour. Rotate the
corn several times, he said.
Another of his specialties is
Cheesy Potatoes. Herring's
whole family likes this dish,
which he varies by adding
onion and garlic powder to
the cooked potatoes.
Fresh green beans simmered
with ham hocks are a
Southern- style side dish that
goes well with grilled meats
and chicken.
"The next day these are
even better," Herring said.
The recipe for Oatmeal
Cake comes from Herring's
mother and was his father's
favorite cake. More than 30
years ago, her recipe was
printed in "The Daily
Iberian," a newspaper in New
Iberia, La.
' The'cake is easily mixed by
hand. The texture is like any
other cake and no one can
tell that there is oatmeal in it,
said Herring.
After baking, warm icing is
poured over the cake and is
absorbed into the cake and
glazes the top.

from Paul Herring.

The Seabreeze total is up to
almost 200 bags.
"We only count them if
they're full," said Axler. "We've

World Grill Owner and Chef Gets

Presidential Assignment

Brett Harris is the owner and chef
of one of our community's leading .
restaurants. His credentials and
experience as a chef are impressive
and quite obvious when you treat
yourself to a meal at World Grill,
located at 14471 Beach Boulevard. 4, .
Harris has more than 30 years of
culinary experience, including Ritz
Carlton Hotels, Renaissance Hotels,
Marriott Health and Nutritional -
Services and several private clubs
including Epping Forest Yacht Club.
His position, just prior to opening
World Grill with his wife, Cindy, was
as Executive Chef at the Omni Hotel
in downtown Jacksonville. ".
There is a lot more to Chef Brett's
story than happens here at World
Grill. This modest Certified
Executive Chef has just returned
from a "Presidential" Assignment in
Washington D.C. He was invited to
the White House to assist with culi-
nary training. "The only thing I love
more than being a chef," he says, "is
training others in the art of fine cui-
sine preparation." In the two week
program in March, Chef Harris, an
Approved Certification Evaluator,
worked with "the best of the best"
Navy cooks who had been carefully
screened and selected for the pro-
gram. Their goal was to earn ACF's
Certified Chef de Cuisine distinc-
Exact details of the program are
kept confidential, but it centers on
teaching both practical and educa-
tional elements required to become
certified chefs. Brett Harris, owner
Chef Harris is animated when he White House totrai
speaks of this experience, and a previ-
ous similar assignment at the
Pentagon, but not because of who he saw or even the
honor this represents. "The teaching aspect is reward-
ing for me," he says. "These cooks are motivated and
eager to progress in their chosen field the best of the
best as I said.' As we get older, we like to help others."
He was introduced to the enjoyment of cooking as a 13
year old working at a deli in St. Louis. The mentoring
of his employers and his mother, a good cook, set him
on a career course.
Speaking of his Washington experiences, "This
makes me better at my business. It makes my food bet-
ter.. I see different dishes being prepared by excelle.nt-
cooks at the many Navy bases. I developed my style-
and I pass it along to my cooks here. Both of our chefs
started as cooks; now one is certified and one is in the
process. They see the value of being more than just a
Just ask him to describe fine cuisine, and it will make
you hungry. "Fine cuisine embraces all the senses. As
the plate is placed in front of you, you see the food.
The arrangement is well designed and draws the eye.
Then you smell the food and then taste the food. This
is the best business in the world because we deal with
all the senses. There is texture, garnish..." and, we

would add, satisfaction.
You can now experience that satisfaction at World
Grill with more convenience since the Beach Boulevard
Bridge has opened. The barrels are gone and traffic is
no longer an issue, Chef Brett happily reports, "We
have been waiting for those barrels to go away." These
past months have discouraged travel on Beach
Boulevard, but put those worries aside now and head
for World Grill just east of San Pablo Road. You can
find it on the web at www.worldgrilljax.com.
World Grill is locally owned and operated and is one-
of-a-kind, the creation of Chef Brett and his wife,
,- Cindy.: The menu features an eclectic selection of dish-
es made'with the freshest ingredients from around the
globe. World Grill features a wood-fired grill which
enhances flavor and you'll relish the unique ambiance
the Harris's have created.
New summer hours have just begun which include an
expanded schedule on Saturday. Open on Saturday
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for breakfast and lunch and then
at 5 10 p.m. for dinner, Sunday, 9 a.m. 3 p.m. and
Tuesday through Friday, 5 10 p.m. The restaurant is
now closed for lunch during the week. Weekend din-
ner reservations are suggested by calling 904-223-9752.

Playoff run ends with loss to Buchholz

Fletcher High baseball team
knows it accomplished some
significant things in 2008.
Perhaps that's why last Friday
night's 6-1 regional semifinal
loss to Buchholz didn't evoke
sadness at a season's end, but
rather excitement about
what's possible in the near
"We knew coming in it was
going to be difficult," Fletcher
head coach Kevin Brown said,
"I mean, they're good. We
didn't take advantage of some
opportunities to score in this
game, didn't make things
happen. And all that is is a
sign of a young team.
"So.next year I'm expecting
us to be a little bit smarter, a
little bit stronger, a little bit
faster and a little bit more
Brown tabbed Darius
Thompson as his starter
against Buchholz, partly to
give the youngster some big-
game experience but also out
of necessity. Staff ace Scott
Sitz had pitched the Senators
into the regional semifinal

singled sharply to left to load
the bases with one out.

end the threat.
The Senators finally did

Buchholz rallied with three
runs in the bottom of the

Thompson's night. The soph-

on six hits while striking out
three, walking a pair and hit-

Thompson was replaced by
sophomore Beau Beaudreau, a

delivery that initially kept

e "He threw the district

Buchholz skipper David Banes
said of Beaudreau. "It was a
good change of pace for
[Fletcher] because the first kid
had a decent arm and then

With only two seniors in
the starting lineup, Franklin
and Adeeb, plus Sean Brown
in a reserve role, the Senators
head coach knows he returns
a strong core of players next
season. But Kevin Brown also
realizes what his team needs
to do to build upon the suc-
cess of this year's campaign.
"We just have to get more
physical," he said. "I mean,
when you get to this level,

Fantastic weather leads to great catches

Great weather with good
fishing greeted both
inshore and offshore
anglers last Thursday morning.
Outstanding is the only way
to describe the bottom fishing.
Capt. Dennis Young on his
Sea Dancer out of Jax Marine
in Mayport set the pace off-
shore last weekend. Capt.
Dennis, with the Duane
Schmidt party on Sunday,
brought home 10 snapper, five
amberjack, a blackfin and 50
On Thursday, both the
Mayport Princess and the King
Neptune brought home happy
anglers. They helped their
fishermen unload as many as
40 snapper each afternoon
weighing up to 15 pounds,
grouper, amberjack, sea bass
anddozens of big beeliners.
This was the story on the
Princess each afternoon.
Capt. Scott Reynolds and his
crew helped their smiling
anglers string up and ice down
35 snapper on Sunday. In
addition there were three big
grouper, three amberjack and
plenty of beeliners.
Earlier in the week, on
Thursday, in addition to
another excellent catch of
snapper, anglers put 11


grouper up to 20 pounds and
a 25-pound cobia on the
cleaning table.
Capt. David King took
friends fishing on his Crusty
Crab last Friday. Claudia Estes,
Ann White and Melissa
Middlewhite had great action
in the river near the Dames
Point Bridge. They caught
three trout, three drum, 60
croakers, yellowmouth, a
flounder and a pair of man-
grove snapper.
Capt. Willie Ulmer and
Louise Carson fished the river
near the Naval Air Station last
Sunday and caught five reds to
30 inches and seven drum to
12 pounds.

limit of pompano on each
Capt. David Sipler with his
guest Dave Colteal fished the
river with live shrimp and
caught three huge trout, two
reds and lots of jacks.
Sheila Reynolds, fishing the
canal with dead bait, weighed
up a seven and three-quarter-
pound trout at B&M.
Dwight Hibbard and his
daughter Candy fishing the
canal with guide John Dyrssen
netted five speckled trout last
Wednesday. Candy had one
that weighed four and a half
pounds. They also caught one
red, a flounder and several
mangrove snapper.
Capt. George Bull and his
friend Johnny Braddock on
the Bionic Bull last Friday cer-
tainly had a red-hot day. They
used live shrimp and jigs to
capture 22 reds to 26 inches,
four trout, four drum, two
flounder and a blue.
The best out of town fishing
report this past week comes
from James and Tina Gergley.
They worked several spots in
the Keys last week near Florida
Bay on their Head Hunter and
caught 38 trout (19 to 24
inches), sheepshead, to seven
pounds and black drum to ten
pounds. On another short trip
while they were there they
picked up six bonefish to six
pounds, mangrove snapper,
dog snapper and a 'cuda.
Last Wednesday and
Thursday were active days on
the Jacksonville Beach Pier.
Black drum, sheepshead, whit-
ing, flounder and pompano
showed up in coolers all dur-
ing the two-day period.
Capt. Kirk Walsh with the
Jerry Mallard party last
Wednesday at the end of the
rocks had to work hard but it
paid off later in the morning
with a catch of eight reds to

Will an unknown once again win The Players title?

Show's your pick in this

call The Players
Championship? Phil

Ogilvy? Adam Scott? Some
darkhorse you've never heard
Don't laugh at "darkhorses,"

Kentucky Derby. Well, maybe
not in the conventional sense,
but Big Brown was dark
enough, and he was surely
horse enough.
But in golf.lingo, we mean a
hoss nobody thinks has a
chance of succeeding this week
out at TPC Sawgrass. Or at
least a players nobody has
thought of at all until report
card day on Sunday.
By that we reference a player
like Craig Perks, winner here
in Ought Two, who prior to
the tournament was no more
known in these parts than his
great grandma. No offense


intended toward Grandma
Perks, who no doubt is a nice
doll, as writer Damon Runyon.

many golf tournaments had
she won?
For that matter, how many
events has Perks won since he
upset the field and wagerers

here in 2002? Fact is, Craig did
a Mark Hayes (winner in 1977)
and vanished into the Twilight
Zone after his shocking victory
here, the first time, incidental-
ly, this tournament was played
in the Sawgrass confines.
For years there were rumors
of Hayes having been spotted
here or there, but no success.
He was like the horse a certain
writer we know (no names,
please) wagered on that never
came in. Search parties were
sent out, to no avail. Rewards
were posted, but the losing
horse never turned up.
Not so with Hayes, who later
made a comeback of sorts and
eventually won again.
One scribe suggested the
shock of Hayes winning the
1977 Players Championship
caused him to go into an
amnesia coma, explaining his
missing years. At least Hayes, a
quiet, inoffensive Oklahoman,
did resurface and wasn't like
the infamous Judge Crater

who got into a New York taxi-
cab one day back in 1930 and
was never seen or heard from
This is not to put Craig Perks
in that class; simply to point
out that he is one of those
players who came here, made
a splash, then fell off the radar
screen with respect to winning
subsequent PGA tournaments.
Then we have Trevor
Immelman, the young South
African who shocked staid old
Augusta National by winning
the Masters without even a
pedigree to his name. Rarely
heard of at Augusta.
Can this gifted, but previ-
ously practically unknown
golfer do it again here this
And what about old faithfuls
like Ernie Els, Mark
Calcavecchia, Davis Love III,
Sergio Garcia, runner-up last
year by two strokes, and reign-
ing champ Phil Mickelson?
Or how about Steve

Elkington, who's done it
before and knows the ropes
like a sailor? Or Vijay Singh,
who has more fans than a
milkman on a cat farm? Isn't it
finally time for the Fijian, who
presently resides in Ponte
Vedra Beach, to win this.
And as long as we're looking
for local heroes, what about
Fred Funk? Name one fan who
hasn't cheered for the diminu-
tive and personable Fred lots
of times. He did it three years
ago and can repeat. Then
there's Jim Furyk, the trans-
planted Pennsylvanian who
also makes his home in Ponte
Vedra Beach. He's among the
best in the world but hasn't
cracked the Sawgrass win col-
umn yet. Maybe the fates will
realize this and do him a long
overdue favor.
Here's a question we'd like
the experts who run this tour-
nament to answer: Will play-
ing'in May cause the PGA,

media, Congress, Dr. Phil, the
United Nations and network
television to immediately
declare The Players
Championship a "major" tour-
nament? Will it mean victories
for all those players who have
been unable to win here?
We were told moving to
May' would solve everyone's
problems and that there would

The ghosts of Bob Jones and

greats Ben Hogan, Sam

Big crowds, small waves on

Saturday; reverse on Sunday


Though few were there to
actually see it, competitors
took advantage of some of the
best waves and conditions in
recent memory Sunday morn-
ing for the finals in several
divisions of the 25th annual
WaveMasters Surf Contest.
The scene just South of the
Jacksonville Beach Pier was

day before, when hundreds of
spectators turned out for pre-
liminary heats of the
WaveMasters event, only to
witness an uncooperative
Atlantic Ocean produce just

Nevertheless, surfers sol-
diered on through Saturday's
heats and were rewarded with
consistent three- to five-foot
waves Sunday morning. To
take advantage of the condi-
tions, finals in the men's and
women's shortboard pro divi-
sions were moved up and took
place first. ';,:: ..
By noon, however, the big
waves had subsided and the
sea was mostly calm for finals
in the longboard and tandem
The weekend contest fea-
tured some of the area's top
surfing talent, as well as kids,
seniors (ages 35 to 49) and
legends in action.
This year's contest was dedi-
cated to the memory of Jed
Davis, one of North Florida's
top all-time competitors,
according to WaveMasters
president Mitch Kaufmann.
Davis died last December.in a
traffic accident. Kaufmann
said he couldn't recall Davis
ever missing a WaveMasters
In conjunction with the surf
contest, WaveMasters also
conducted a raffle to raise
money for local charities. The
raffle featured thousands of
dollars worth of surfboards
and accessories, Kaufmann
