Palms eyed as low-income housing


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Potential plans for a low-income
housing project at the entrance of
Atlantic Beach are being considered.
The site of the former Palms apart-
ments north of Atlantic Boulevard on
Mayport Road could be converted into
low-income housing if funding can be
secured, according to Mayor John
Meserve.
Meserve Monday told fellow com-
missioners he met with property
owner Chris Hionides to discuss the
site, which has been in a state of par-
tial demolition for more than a year.


"[Hionides is] now interested in
doing a low-income housing project, "
said Meserve. "I think it could be a
worthwhile pursuit."
The commission passed an ordi-
nance in February to prevent partially
abandoned building projects.
According to the ordinance, a proj-
ect cannot remain idle for more than
six months and the Palms' is at
approximately the half way point
before action must be taken, accord-
ing to Community Development
Director Sonya Doerr.
The commission will send a letter to
Hionides requesting a commitment to
the low-income housing plan.


"If we're convinced he is actually
pursuing something and not just wait-
ing for the market to change, I'm will-
ing to put in the time," Meserve said.
According to Meserve, the project
would rehabilitate the approximately
100 current structures as either low-
income housing or rental units.
Hionides could not be reached for
comment.
Housing would likely sell in the
$160,000 range while rental units
would be between $800 and $1,000,
according to preliminary discussions,
Meserve said. However, the numbers

investigate

rape report

by teen.
FROM STAFF
Neptune Beach police are
investigating a sexual bat-
tery that occurred last week
involving a 15-year-old girl,
according to police officials.
The victim, 15, was
passed out on the beach at
the Seagate Avenue ramp
Thursday at approximately
12:45 a.m, according to a
police report.
A witness riding his skate-
board observed the girl stag-
gering toward the ramp and
said she fell down and
passed out, according to the
report.
The witness attempted to
wake the victim up, accord-
ing to the report.
Police noticed she was
intoxicated and could not
provide her name or phone
number, according to the
report.
Rescue paramedics arrived
at the scene to check on the
victim, who was able to
answer some questions
about 30 minutes later,
according to the report.
She told police she had
been raped and was trans-
ported to Shands Hospital,
according to the report. The
report says there are two
unnamed sexual battery
suspects at large.
Assistant Police Chief
Tony Corillo said police are
interviewing witnesses, but
could provide no additional
information because the
investigation is ongoing.

Police and JB at impasse

Meeting tomorrow is open for public comment


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
More experienced police officers should receive
higher pay, according to Jacksonville Beach police
officers who rejected a three percent pay increase
offered by city labor negotiators.
The City Council will conduct an impasse resolu-
tion hearing at 5:30 p.m. today at City Hall to con-
sider a police union proposal that would provide a
six percent pay increase for officers with six or more
years of service.
Council members, will vote on whether to
approve the union's request, the city's offer or
establish a compromising pay strategy.
. The meeting is open to the public with comments
permitted ,prior to the presentations.
On May 28, union members with the Jacksonville
Beach Lodge 17 voted 40-3 to reject the city's pro-
posed wage increase of three percent across the
board.
The union is asking for a three percent pay boost
and an additional three percent for more seasoned
officers to discourage them from going to bigger
departments with more competitive pay.
"This offer was designed to encourage career
minded officers to remain with the department
thus avoiding the turnover that has plagued [the


..- ..... Ja,.uonvutc oeacn, nla. 52250 I


Jacksonville Beach Police Department] in the past,"
said chief negotiator Gary Evans.
Evans said the goal is to retain the more experi-
enced officers with seniority that "sometimes we
lose over time" to larger agencies with better pay
opportunities.
The union is also asking the city to recognize
Police Memorial Day and Christmas Eve as paid
police holidays.
"Jacksonville Beach is the only city in Northeast
Florida that has nine recognized holidays. Everyone
else generally recognizes 12," Evans said. "We are
asking for two additional holidays."
The starting salary for entry level officers in
Jacksonville Beach is $35,564 a year which is mar-
ginally higher than the annual state average of
$35,129, according to last year's Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's salary information report.
Officers with over five years of service earn less
than a n officer with-the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office
with the same number of years in service and simi-
lar annual reviews, Evans said.
Statistics provided by the FOP point to a $4,000
difference in salary increases for a six year veteran
in Jacksonville Beach compared to an officer with
six years of service at the JSO.

Free event stresses water safety


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
A free water safety session is sched-
uled June 21 at the Winston Family
YMCA in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Y Splash!, a national family-orient-
ed water safety program, will be
offered from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the
YMCA on Landrum Lane. The event,
which is open to the public, is for
swimmers and non-swimmers.
Y Splash! is being presented as the
swim season, with summer's arrival,
officially begins. The importance of
water safety is underscored by recent
studies.
A USA Swimming study by the
University of Memphis shows drown-
ing to be the second-leading cause of
death among youth.14 and younger.
And, according to the Florida
Department of Health, the Sunshine
State has the highest drowning death
rate nationally for children ages 1 to
4.
Although it is open to all age
groups, Y Splash! is specifically for the
family, Joel Ruttenber, aquatics direc-
tor at the Ponte Vedra Beach facility,


said Monday.
"It'll offer instructional activities
that deal with safety around pools and
other bodies of water," said Ruttenber,
noting there are many of both in and
around Florida.
The event begins with a 45-minute
session in one of the YMCA studios,
where Ruttenber and members of his
aquatics staff will talk about water
safety.
Ruttenber said the first 50 children
to arrive will each be given a T-shirt.
After the in-studio session, "We'll go
out to the pool and witness a simulat-
ed emergency. From there we'll work
on water safety, what to do if a child
falls in a pool, how to get to the wall,
and so forth," Ruttenber said.
"Then we'll work on some basic
swim techniques [and] ... rescue tech-.
niques with lifeguards."
After that session, which also is
expected to last 45 minutes, guests
will be treated to a hot-dog lunch that
will wrap up the day's activities, said
Ruttenber.
There also will be opportunities to
tour the Winston Family Y.


"It'll be a great informational ses-
sion, particularly at the start of the
summer. I'd love to see anybody
here," said Ruttenber.
"YMCAs have traditionally been the
places where young people learned
not only swimming skill, but also the
importance of playing safely in the
water to prevent injury," said Laura
Burk, aquatics director for YMCA of
Florida's First Coast, of which the
Winston Family YMCA is a branch.
The Winston Family YMCA offers
several aquatics opportunities, such as
a year-round swim team for ages 7 to
18, swimming classes, private lessons
and clinics for improving stroke effi-
ciency, technique and speed.
Those clinics, for swimmers and
triathletes, are for ages 9 and up and
are being offered Fridays from 4 p.m.
to 7 p.m. Half-hour clinic is $25 for
members, $40 for others, and one-
hour clinic is $45 for members, $65
for others.
For more information, visit
FirstCoastYMCA.org or call the
Winston Family Y at 543-9622 and ask
for Ruttenber.


Monkey's Uncle gets OK for package store


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A Jacksonville Beach bar is plan-
ning to expand its operation tp
include an upscale package liquor
store.
Monkey's Uncle Tavern at 1850 3rd
Street South in the Pablo Plaza shop-
ping center received conditional use
approval Monday to relocate an exist-


ing package store business into a
vacant tenant space east of the tav-
ern.
The city's Planning Commission
Monday unanimously approved the
request.
Senior Planner Bill Mann said the
conditional use approval relieves the
business of its current legal noncon-
forming status,


Monkey's Uncle predates the city's
Land Development Code standards
for a bar and package store and is not
permitted to expand the business
without an okay to operate the pack-
age liquor store by conditional use.
Mann said the parking require-
ments of one space per 250 square
feet will not change regardless of the
tenant mix.


Affordable housing is welcome, BEAM says

P PALMS, from A-1


are not definitive and subject to
change.
He added Tuesday he is personally
committed to help Hionides secure
funding for the project by soliciting
help at the local or state level.
"I would much rather have a good
housing project...than scraping it
down to the ground," he said. "The
city, and myself as a business owner,
want affordable housing to be part of
the Beaches."
Although the proposal does not


circumvent the partially demolished
building ordinance, Hionides can
request an extension to delay demo-
lition, according to City Attorney
Alan Jensen.
Beaches Emergency Assistance
Ministry (B.E.A.M.) Executive
Director Cindy Funkhouser said the
project would be beneficial for the
Beaches.
"We see people in here every single
day that are looking for housing,"
according to Funkhouser, who said


in the last month B.E.A.M. has had
18 homeless families come into the
agency.
"That's the most we've ever, ever
seen," she said.
Funkhouser said housing should
be 30 percent of a family's income
and there is a demand for lower
income housing in the area.
"It's supply and demand," she said.
"That's what the market's demand-
ing. It's the economy balancing
itself out."

Union wants better compensation for senior officers

o- MEETING, from A-1


Sue Taylor, personnel
director for Jacksonville
Beach, Tuesday said the city
offers a competitive pay step
program based on an offi-
cer's performance level to
determine an appropriate
salary increase.
"It is a merit pay step sys-
tem. We have 17 steps for
our officers and the steps
vary in between," she said.
"Most of the steps are at
three percent. There are a
couple that are five percent
and there is a seven percent
step. At the top of the scale


the steps are two percent."
What that could mean for
an officer with a positive
annual evaluation, Taylor
said, is the potential to
receive anywhere from a
three to seven percent pay
increase per year.
"An officer depending on
their review can go up one or
two steps through the pay
plan," she said. "It depends
where they are on the scale.
At the highest we have offi-
cers at seven percent get an
additional three percent for a
10 percent increase. The


smallest with two steps is
four percent. It varies."
Evans said the union
agreed with the three per-
cent increase across the
board but proposed insert-
ing the additional three per-
cent at step 12 for experi-
enced officers who have
reached that point in the pay
step program.
"That's what we have on
the table," he said. "If not we
will be back at the table next
year when we are negotiat-
ing the final year of our con-
tract.


The FOP Lodge 17 signed a
three-year contract with the
city last year with a provision
that opened pay negotia-
tions for 2008 and 2009.
Evans said if the FOP does
not ratify the decision of the
City Council, a one-year
salary contract will be
imposed under state law.
Taylor said the law
enforcement budget for
Jacksonville Beach is approx-
imately $1.6 million for 50
full. time officers.

The Leader's Opinion


Tradition of


excellence


is well earned


Athletes at Fletcher and Nease are used to victory.
They have a tradition of winning in many
sports.
Today's' sports page features a look back at some
of the highlights.
Students at the two public schools that serve the
Beaches community also have a tradition of. aca-
demic excellence.
Fletcher is asking a national magazine to review
the data and list the school on the list of the
nation's best. Data indicates that the school should
be ranked 89, which is the same ranking Nease High
School enjoys on the magazine's list of best schools.
A strong core of academically challenging cours-
es, distinguished faculty and a coalition of parents
committed to education has contributed to create a
tradition of excellence.
Athletics, academics and a winning attitude are
part of the formula for success at Nease and
Fletcher. All involved can, and should, be proud of
the continued advancement.
In August, a new tradition will begin when Ponte
Vedra High School opens its doors.
There is ample evidence to believe that the Sharks
will enjoy the same success as the Panthers and the
Senators. Beaches residents would not have it any
other way and put in the time and talent necessary
to achieve results that are both stellar and pre-
dictable.
We can all be proud of the schools and the stu-
dents.




Letters to the editor:


Missionaries, stick to the adults


To the editor:
To the two young women
who accosted my daughter
and her friend on Atlantic
Beach on Saturday, stay
away from my kids! These
two women approached
these teenagers and pro-
ceeded to. proselytized for,
30 minutes, while these two
girls listened politely. My
daughter is 15 but her body
type makes her appear
much younger and more
vulnerable.
So, we had to repeat the
whole lecture about speak-


ing with strangers whether
they are selling religion,
politics, lost dogs, ice
cream, whatever. We live in
a relatively safe community,
but that doesn't mean that
bad things cannot happen.
Parents, remind your kids
that they can. -politely -but
firmly :say, !'No, thank lyo.ii.
My parents don't want me
speaking with strangers."
And missionaries, stick to
the adults.

Atlantic Beach


Stop sign means stop


To the editor:
Driving cars and especial-
ly SUV's and trucks is some-
thing some drivers cannot
do correctly. Something as
important as a STOP sign is
so often IGNORED as cars
glide through and proceed
to their next move.


Just now, a huge SUV
approaching Penman
-speeds past the STOP sign
and then swiftly glides right
onto Penman. IGNO-
RANCE. STOP. LOOK.

COLUMNIST


Telling

a story

has real

value for


From 17-stories up, my job Southern


looks better and better


here are a number
of reasons why I
would never cut it
as a cop.
I do not enjoy people
shooting at me and I
would definitely get car
sick during a high speed
chase.
I would not like to enter
an unsecured location
where someone may or
may not be engaging in
some heinous act and I
am not coordinated
enough to successfully
wrangle a criminal into
handcuffs without the
risk of personal injury.
I would wilt at the
scene of an accident
involving even trace
amounts of blood or bro-
ken bones and I would
never enter a profession
- regardless of how noble
- that required me to
rappel frorri the roof of a
multistory building.
As a journalist, much of
my time is spent seated at
my computer, wandering
back and forth from my
desk to the printer or
doing laps of the building
when I have had too
much coffee.
A good part of my busi-
ness is conducted over the
phone or via e-mail and
the most disturbing
images I have encoun-
tered on the job usually
come in digital format.
That is not to say that I
don't get out in the field.
In my 10 years as a
reporter, I have donned
.firefighting gear 'from
head to toe to participate
in a simulated rescue
exercise using thermal
imaging equipment in the
laser tag room at
Adventure Landing.
I have interviewed fam-

ilies reeling long after a
grievous loss and man-
aged to retain my compo-
sure despite a quivering
lip and sympathetic
breaking heart.
I've spoken with a few
people-who have made it
no secret that they would
rather eat a bowl of glass
than answer my ques--
tions.
But no amount of
courtroom drama, graphic
testimony or deadline
pressure equals what I
faced last week.
The Jacksonville Beach
SWAT team conducted a
training detail from the
rooftop of Pablo Towers
and I went there to pho-
tograph the operation.
From my vantage point
on the ground below, I
could vaguely make out
, the silhouettes of the men
who shimmied down the
vertical concrete column.
Several residents of the
senior apartment com-
plex carried lawn chairs to
the sidewalk to get a bet-
ter view of the training
exercise. Many 'of the
women watching com-
mented that it made them
lightheaded to look so
high up.
I soon discovered just


how dizzy one could
become viewing the
action up close. The but-
terflies started in the ele-
vator on the way up to
the roof and burst forth
with furious nervous
energy once I was outside-
and able to put the actual
'height into the proper
context.
My feet stayed firmly
planted on the rooftop
but at 17 stories high that
rooftop afforded beauti-
ful vistas of sea, sand -
and cement.
I couldn't tell if I was
unsteady or if the build-
ing itself was swaying like
a suspension bridge.
Either way, I kept one
* hand on the wall at all
times just like I learned in
my brief fire rescue train-
ing.
These men were fas-
.-tened into.-a safety-har-
iness .attach d to !a: pulley
system held in place by a
single structural column.
One by one, they were
lowered down the build-
ing without the slightest
hint of hesitation. To
them, it was just another
day at the office.
I would ride a speeding'
car with no brakes
through a hail of
unfriendly fire into a
burning building with an
escaped convict at the
wheel before I willingly
dangled at such heights.
Or at least eat a bowl of
glass.
My admiration and
respect for those in law
enforcement runs much
deeper now that I see how
challenging a work day
can really be watching
from the ground, of
course.


More letters to the editor:

Appreciate efforts of many Beaches educators


To the editor:
To paraphrase a notiQn: "... because
we're lucky enough to live at the beach,
we're lucky enough." During this gradua-
tion season, we couldn't feel luckier than
to live in this community which has gift-
ed our children with incredibly wonderful
options for elementary and middle
school. The faculty, staff and parental sup-
port evident of these schools is beyond
compare!
Observing graduation activities associ-
ated with Fletcher High School, we con-
tinue to reflect on the educational jewels
in our community. Kudos to the adminis-


tration, faculty and staff of the Beaches'
exceptional high school! Our children
have benefited in countless ways from the
life-giving opportunities that the teachers
and coaches have extended ongoingly.
"The object of education is to prepare
the young to educate themselves through-
out their lives" Robert Maynard
Hutchins. Thank you to all the teachers
and educators that have inspired, encour-
aged and mentored our children! We will
always be grateful to each of you.

woman,

torytelling is not just a
Southern phenomenon.
All of us Southerners
know that, but we like to
claim we have the best story-
fellers anyway, along with the
best cooks, the best college
football and the best-looking
women. And we do.
But when it comes to story-
telling-in the South and in
those other regions, too-
we're beginning to lose some
of our ability simply because
we don't sit down and talk
much anymore.
Sally Russell is a bit dis-
tressed that it's so, but no one
could ever accuse her of los-
ing her storytelling prowess.
Just ask her to tell you a story,
and the words roll out and
melt before you, like butter
on hot grits. Or just read her
-latestbook, Latitude of Home:
*:A.. Storytelling ; Journey
(Mercer University Press,
$27), which is a collection of
wonderful stories of three
generations of her extended
family.
I especially like this story:
Uncle James Harris Bowden
Sr. often grieved when it came
time for him and his family to
pile in the car and head back
to South Georgia, leaving
their kinfolks' home in North
Georgia. So he came up with
a "simple ceremony for the
moment of departure,"
Russell writes. "It was the job
of the people at the home-
place to ring bells or clap
enthusiastically as the car
pulled away. The driver of the
car had to play the car horn,
and the passengers clapped
and waved. In a numerous
and boisterous family of 13
siblings, giving a bell took on
a celebratory sound that was
perfect because it was polite
tradition if you were glad to
see the guests go, and it cov-
ered up your sorrow when
you were sad."
When Jim Bowden died,
the practice of ringing bells
Sand clapping found its way
into the final goodbye.
Sally Russell's family was
unusually close, mostly
because her grandparents and
parents and aunts and uncles
set out to make it that way.
They held regular reunions-
her uncle, U.S. Sen. Richard B.
Russell, was one of the spon-
J sors-and it was almost a
command performance that
you attend.
"I have first cousins that
I'm closer to than a lot of peo-
ple are close to their own
brothers and sisters," Russell
said in a telephone interview.
"It's such an amazing thing."
Russell thrives on stories
about people close to her.
"When you hear a story
about your grandfather or
your great-uncle," she said,
"you know who you came
from; you know that blood's
in your veins and maybe I'll
be like that, or maybe that's
why I am the way I am."
It's all history, she said, and
it's more relevant than bare
facts. Besides, who knows
what the facts are these days,
what with people who. sup-
pose that certain things hap-
pened and others who revise
what really did happen?
Instead of listening to pseudo-
historians, why not listen to
the people you know?
Sally Russell does just
that-and writes beautifully
about them. She's worth your
time.

Mayport master chief on fast track


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Brian Porter is one
squared-away sailor.

The Jacksonville resident
has risen from seaman
recruit to master chief
petty officer in just 15
years.
Porter, 35, was recently
promoted to master chief,
the highest enlisted rank in
the Navy, during a small
frocking ceremony at
Afloat Training Group
Mayport, where he is the
assistant director of train-
ing.
"Advancing to master
chief is a great distinction.
It means the Navy has
great confidence in you,"
Porter's commanding offi-
cer, Capt. Herbert Hadley,
said at the ceremony,
attended by Porter's wife,
Carolyn, and their new-
born son, Cole.
"I'm proud of him,"
Carolyn Porter said.
"He's an overachiever. He
can go as far as he wants."
No one drives Porter
harder than himself; His
wife is no slacker either.
When she was 17,
Carolyn Porter graduated
in the top 10 percent of
her class at Fletcher High
School. Four years later,
she graduated summa cum
laude from the University
of North Florida with a
degree in finance.
The couple will celebrate
their 11th wedding
anniversary on June 21,
but adjusting to Navy life
hasn't been easy.
Porter's job as an opera-
tions specialist takes him to
sea on a routine basis.
Carolyn Porter has sacri-
ficed her own ambitions to
be a stay-at-home mother
and a substitute teacher.
A self-described "latch-
key kid" growing up,
Carolyn Porter was raised
in a Navy family her
father is a retied senior
chief petty officer but
that doesn't mean she wel-
comed the role of a dutiful
Navy spouse.
"My dad did everything
he could to keep us here,"
said Carolyn Porter, who
grew up in Jacksonville and
attended public schools at
the Beaches and Mandarin.
"I was very anti-Navy
when I met Brian. It helps
that my mom and dad are
still married after 33 years."
Carolyn is her husband's
toughest critic.
As Porter worked his way
up the enlisted ranks, mak-
ing chief petty officer
before he was 30, he made
time to attend night school
for an undergraduate
degree.


He is expected to gradu-
ate from UNF in August
with a bachelor's in busi-
ness-administration. He
plans to begin studying for
an MBA this fall.
"We're both high achiev-
ers and very competitive
with each other," said
Carolyn Porter, a substitute
teacher at Greenland Pines
Elementary, the school the
couple's 8-year-old daugh-
ter attends.
Brian Porter said he was
"aimless" after high school.
Despite never having
seen a Navy ship in person,
the Texas native enlisted at
18, signing up for the
Navy's delayed-entry pro-
gram.
A recruiter talked him,
into his job specialty, or
rate, that meant Porter
would spend a considerable
time at sea.
"I went into it blind. I
didn't know what [an oper-
ations specialist] meant. All
I knew was I was going to
do my best."
In the Navy, operations
specialists are stationed
aboard combat vessels.
They maintain and operate
plotting boards and radars
in the combat information
center. Some, such as
Porter, are trained as com-
bat air controllers for heli-
copters and fixed-wing air-
craft.
According to the Navy,
the job can be "very
intense and stressful while
the ship is steaming."
Operations specialists must
be able to thinkon their
feet and make calculations
on the fly.
"My whole career has
revolved around the comh-
mand center of a ship,"
said Porter, who has served
on nuclear aircraft carriers,
and guided-missle destroy-
ers, cruisers and frigates.
"I do a lot of sea time,
but that's where it's at. I
love my job. I'm one of the
many rates in the Navy
that have a high-operation
tempo."
Porter started out like
every other seaman
apprentice (E-2) "sweeping
passageways and fetching
coffee" as a 20-year-old OS
on the nuclear cruiser USS
Long Beach.
An honor recruit in boot
camp, he rose quickly,
becoming a 3rd class petty
officer in two years. After
the Long Beach was
decommissioned, Porter
earned a flag, or admiral's
staff assignment in 1995 to
Commander Carrier Group
Six.
The move brought him
to Mayport for the first
time.
"I had heard Mayport
was the place to be in the


Command Master Chief Kenneth Morrison (left) and Carolyn


Navy," said, Porter, who
met his wife in Jacksonville
Beach in 1996 and married
her a year later.
A month after their wed-
ding, Porter was reassigned
to the Mayport-based
destroyer USS O'Bannon.
Porter spent two years on
the ship and made two
deployments. He said the
O'Bannon was where he
learned "the brunt" of his
Navy rate.
> ,In 1999, Porter was
granted an "A" school
instructor billet to Dam
Neck, Va.
For Porter, then only 26,
it was an opportunity to
teach rising operations spe-
cialists "what the Navy was
really all about," he said.
"The Navy counts on 'A'
school to train the basics
and deliver sailors to the
ships," he said. "You're
looking for the right atti-
tude and the desire to suc-
ceed."
Succeeding seemed sec-
ond nature to Porter. He
made chief petty officer, a
milestone promotion for
enlisted sailors, during his
three-year instructor
assignment.
He was on leave awaiting
orders to the USS Taylor
when he earned the covet-
ed gold anchors of a chief
petty officer.
Porter served as a divi-
sion chief on the Taylor, a
guided-missile frigate
homeported at Mayport
since 2005.
He nabbed his current


assignment at Afloat
Training Group (ATG)
Mayport in the fall of
2006.
According to its website,
"ATG proudly employs the
best sailors in the Navy
and keeps their wartime
expertise sharp."
"We make sure ships are
ready for deployment,"
said Porter, who arrived at
ATG as a senior petty offi-
cer.
Porter credits his swift,;
advancement up the enlist-
ed ranks to good study
habits and inspiring lead-
ers.
"I've been fortunate to
be surrounded by great
chiefs and great officers,"
Porter said.
"I've really studied my
job. That helps you
advance through E-6 [1st
class petty officer]. I try to
be the subject matter
expert in my rate."
Porter was among only
six operations specialists in
the Navy to be promoted
to master chief this year.
Master chiefs make up
about 1 percent of the
Navy's total enlisted force.
At 35, Porter may be one
of the youngest master
chiefs in the Navy, but he's
not done climbing the lad-
der.
When his tour with
Afloat Training Group ends
in about a year and a half,
Porter plans to "put in a
package" for selection to
command master chief
petty officer, a senior

enlisted leader who reports
directly to a commanding
officer.
Porter said master chief is
something he never imag-
ined ascending to when he
joified the Navy as an
"aimless" 18-year-old in
1991.
"My primary factor in
joining was to do four
years and get my G.I. Bill,"
Porter recalled.
"I'm still in awe of it all.
But nothing changes for


me. My responsibilities
only get greater."
At the frocking ceremo-
ny, Porter said his wife is
his "most motivating factor
in life."
"I would not be standing
here today without her,"
Porter added.
Said Carolyn Porter: "He
enjoys nurturing the new
guys. He's hard on them,
but they respect him for
it."


Sweet 2nd career for chef


photo by KATHY NICOLETTI
Chef Claude Franques demonstrates how apricots are
enrobed in milk chocolate at his shop in the Shoppes at
St. Johns Oaks.


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
W hat does a chef
trained in France
choose for a sec-
ond career after working in
restaurants in Europe and
in the New York City the-
atre district?
For Chef Claude
Franques it was a move to
St. Johns County to open
Claude's Chocolate.
Franques opened his first
business three years ago in
downtown St. Augustine.
He recently opened a sec-
ond shop in the Shoppes at
St. Johns Oaks.
Franques grew up in
Algeria when the African
country was a French
colony. After Algerian inde-
pendence, he and his fami-
ly returned to France.
At the age of 17 he
began his culinary studies,
and after graduation
worked in Europe for sever-
al years. In 1970, Franques
moved to the United States
and worked at such world
renown New York restau-
rants as Le Cirque, La Cote


Basque, and Rene Pujol.
At Rene Pujol, he met his
wife, Nicole, who is the
daughter of the restaurant's
owner. The couple have
two grown children.
Franques also had the
opportunity to work in
New York with world-
famous pastry chef and
chocolatier Chef Jacques
Torres.
Franques watched Torres
open his own chocolate
business, first in Brooklyn
and then in Manhattan.
He describes, Torres, his
friend and mentor, as "a
very good teacher" who
"encouraged us."
The Franques decided to
leave New York and locate
their business in St.
Augustine after visiting the
area many times over the
years. The charming and
historic atmosphere of the


area provided a real
change of pace from New
York City, they said.
Nicole Franques, who
had worked for a couple
of months in Torres' busi-
ness in preparation for
'"their move to Florida,
manages the retail and
mail order side of Claude's
Chocolate.
Located at at 15 Hypolita
Street, Claude's Chocolate
specializes in chocolate
confections made with all
: natural high quality ingre-
dients such as chocolate
imported from Belgium.
There are no additives or
preservatives used in the
confections. Franques
makes everything in their
new production facility at
the retail store in the
Shoppes at St. Johns Oaks
location.
His bonbons, which
Nicole Franques explained
means candy in French,
come in milk and dark
chocolate filled with an
assortment, of ganache cen-
ters from the chef's own
recipes.
These include fruit fla-


vors such as fresh mango,
lime, raspberry, and pas-
sion fruit; nuts and pra-
lines; cognacs and liqueurs;
fresh mint, ancho and
chipotle chilis; cinnamon;
and caramel.
The bonbons come in
interesting shapes and sev-
eral have designs on the
top in the European tradi-
tion. Franques uses import-
ed transfers of cocoa butter,
sugar, and food coloring to
make the designs on the
bonbons.
Bonbons can be pur-
chased and savored indi-
vidually or in an assort-
ment which can be cus-
tomized in boxes and con-
tainers of various sizes.
Franques also makes
chocolate truffles, choco-
late bark, chocolate cov-
ered pretzel and cookies,
chocolate covered nuts,
chocolate bars, cookies and
biscotti, and numerous
other confections for his
shops.

Fletcher High Year in Review


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

It was a banner year for the
Fletcher High Senators during
the 2007-8 campaign. While no,
state championships were deliv-
ered, Fletcher boys and girls teams
won the Gateway Conference's
All-Sports trophies as the year's
best in Duval County.
SWIMMING: The Senators boys
and girls teams swept to victory in
the Gatewvav championships.
The girls team eked out a 490-
486 victory over pool rival
Mandarin while the boys were
simply dominant in carving out a
victory over the second-place
Mustangs by more than 300
points, 611-292.
The boys continued their sea-
son-long dominance by churn-
ing to the District 1-3A crown.
The Senators earned 465
points and swam away with the
title by more than 160 points
over second-place finisher
Bartram Trail.
GOLF: The Fletcher High girls
golf team won the District 3-2A
championship contested at Selva
Marina Country Club.
As a team, the Senators carded
423 to defeat Mandarin (517) and
Sandalwood (522).
Individually, Katie Strong shot a
96, Katie Russell was a stroke
behind at 97, Carrie Wallace had a
103 and Olivia Markham shot a
127.
The boys team equalled the
girls performance with a district


crown won at Ponte Vedra Golf
& Country Club.
Senators golfers combined for
a 17-stroke victory over runner-
up Mandarin and a team total of
309 to secure the District 3-2A
championship. Thomas Brennan
led the way for Fletcher with a 2-
over 72, followed by teammates
Danny Beatty (78), Kelly Cason
(80) and Shane Kirkland (87).
CROSS COUNTRY: Fletcher's
Megan Bary.finished a close sec-
ond to Stanton's Gwenny
Alonzo, but the
Senators won the
Gateway
Conference team
competition.
In addition to
Bary, teammates
Allison Shemenski,
KayKay Shaffer and
Tara Cripe made
the All-Conference
team.
Fletcher's Alex Schanen ran to
a fourth-place finish in the Class
4A state cross country champi-
onships at Little Everglades
Ranch in Dade City. Schanen, a
senior, clocked 15:56.5 to earn
the fourth spot.
VOLLEYBALL: In three quick
games, Orange Park ended
Fletcher's volleyball season during
the opening round of the District
1-6A tournament played on the
Raiders home court.
The Senators (12-14) managed
to gain slim leads in all three
games before succumbing, 25-11,
26-24, 25-20.
"Overall, it was a successful sea-


son," said Senators first-year head
coach Janice Wish. "It's challeng-
ing in a way whenever you take
over a team the first year. Players
have to get used to a new coach,
coaches have to learn the players'
strengths and it's a learning
process."
BOWLING: Fletcher High won
the inaugural District 1 girls bowl-
ing title, earning a berth in the
state tournament in Orlando.
The Senators (12-0 in the regular
season) beat district runner-up
Mandarin in the
four-team finals to
cap a long day of
competition at Jax
Lanes West.
"We,left school at
7 a.m. and didn't
finish bowling until
5 p.m.," Fletcher
head coach
Christine Andrews
said about the 16-
team tournament for public high
schools in Duval County.
"They kept their energy up and
that made the difference."
FOOTBALL: In what was sup-
posed to be a year of rebuilding
for the Senators, Joe Reynolds'
squad finished 8-2 during the
regular season and claimed a spot
in the state playoffs.
The Senators rode a seven-
game win streak through the sea-
son, found themselves in
Niceville for the first round of
playoffs and concluded a season
that Reynolds called "one of the
best" as a Fletcher coach.
The Senators lost to the Eagles,


30-13, in their first playoff game
in two years, though not without
a fight.
"We played really hard,"
Reynolds said, "but we had a lot
of penalties. We had an excessive
amount of penalties."
BOYS SOCCER: Fletcher (20-2-
2) made it to the regional quarter-
finals of the state playoffs before
Flagler Palm Coast ended the
Senators season for a second
straight year.
FPC's Jason Alverez booted the
lone goal with about eight min-
utes remaining in the game, end-
ing the Senators season by a 1-0
count.
"That was a great goal," Fletcher
head coach Mike Levine said of
Alverez's kick. "I thought we
played well all night, we just did-
n't finish. "
WRESTLING: The Senators bat-
tied to a fourth-place finish in
the District 1-3A tournament
which took place at Fletcher.
Stephen Temple was the
school's lone district champion,
pinning his Niceville opponent
at 1:35 of the heavyweight cham-
pionship bout.
GIRLS BASKETBALL: Fletcher
made it to the Region 1-6A semifi-
nal at Gainesville Buchholz, but
saw the Bobcats come roaring back
from a halftime deficit to earn a
51-47 victory.
The Senators finished the season
with an 18-9 mark, and by advanc-
ing to the regional semifinal, made
it as far as any Fletcher girls basket-
ball team since 1992.
GIRLS LACROSSE: After com-


piling a 10-2 regular season mark,
Fletcher advanced to the district
championship game in April.
"We played great and I'm very
happy," Fletcher head coach
Jessica Muller said after her team
beat Stanton 15-7 in the semifi-
nal. "Our passing was amazing.
We controlled the ball and our
shooting was amazing. Just a
great effort overall."
BOYS TENNIS: The Senators
finished second at the District 1-
4A championships played at the
University of North Florida.
In individual play, Fletcher's No.
1 Jun Condez won the boys sin-
gles title and Michael Flynn won
the boys No. 5 singles title.
SOFTBALL: Mandarin proved
to be Fletcher's nemesis all season
as the Senators lost five games to
the Mustangs including a heart-
breaking 6-5 defeat in the regional
semifinals. Fletcher finished 20-8.
BASEBALL: Fletcher knows it
accomplished some significant
things in 2008. Perhaps that's
why a 6-1 regional semifinal loss
to Buchholz didn't evoke sad-
ness at a season's end, but rather
excitement about the future.
"We knew coming in it was
going to be difficult," said
Senators head coach Kevin
Brown, whose team finished 20-
9, "I mean, they're good. We
didn't take advantage of some
opportunities . 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 experienced."

Fason hopes Jags




offer him contract


Photos by ROB DeANGELO
Former Fletcher High star Ciatrick Fason catches passes (above and below) during drills
last Saturday morning at the Jacksonville Jaguars mini-camp. Fason, who was drafted in
2005 by the Minnesota Vikings, is hoping to land a contract with Jacksonville as either a
running back or special teams player.


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER


There's a possibility the
Jacksonville Jaguars roster
could feature a familiar
Beaches face this season.
Former Fletcher High star
Ciatrick Fason was at the
Jaguars mini-camp last
weekend with an opportuni-
ty to make the roster for the
2008-9 campaign.
Since being released by
the Minnesota Vikings last
season,
Fason has
been strug-
gling to
lafid a spot It's alwa
on an NFL dream to
roster.
A con- Jags, whet
versation year or
with
Jaguars' takes.
vice presi-
dent of
player per-
sonnel Ciatr


James
Harris a few months ago set
up Fason's newest hope and
a chance to make his home-
town team.
"Once I got released by
the Vikings, I had been
going to workouts and just
haven't been picked up,"
Fason said Saturday, after
Jacksonville's two-day mini-
camp concluded.
"I talked to James Harris a
couple of months ago and
he said there was a possibili-
ty they could give me a
look. That's what happened.
Coach [Mike] Tice called me
last week and said that
they'd like to get a look at
me."
And that's what brought
Fason back to his home-
town.
The Jaguars offered Fason
the opportunity to come in
and work out with the pos-
sibility of signing a contract
before preseason training
camp starts in late summer.
"This is a tryout weekend


for him," Jaguars head
coach Jack Del Rio said. "If
we feel there is enough
there, we'll offer him a con-
tract and bring him to
camp."
Playing in his hometown
has been a dream for Fason,
who starred as a running
back at Fletther and went
on to play at the University
of Florida before being
selected by the Minnesota
Vikings in the fourth round
of the 2005 draft.


qys te@n a
play for the
other it's for a
whatever it


ick Fason


"It's
always
been a
dream to
play fut the
Jags,
whether it's
for a year
or whatev-
er it takes,"
Fason said.
"I'll play
here for as
long as I
can. Just to
have an


opportunity [and] to have
the chance to work out, I'm
very excited."
The 6-0, 207-pound run-
ning back spent two seasons
at Minnesota where he
scored five touchdowns and
rushed for 161 yards on 50
carries. Fason was used
mainly as a goal-line back
during his rookie season,
during which he scored four
times in just 32 touches. He
was also credited with his
first pro start in 2006
against Detroit.
At Florida, Fason gained
1,267 yards and scored 10
touchdowns as a starter in
his junior season. He earned
SEC player of the week in
Sept. 2004.
While at Fletcher, Fason
gained over 7,400 yards and
was nationally recognized as
one of the top backs in the
country while being named
the Class 5A Mr. Footballin
his senior season.
Since being released by


Minnesota, Fason had work-
outs for the Seattle
Seahawks, Houston Texans
and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Seattle brought him in
when the team was dealing
with injury problems at the
running back position.
Houston took a, look and
decided not to offer Fason a
contract and Tampa Bay
also balked after bringing in
Zack Crockett, leaving Fason
still searching for a job.
In returning to the
Beaches area, Fason gets the
rare opportunity to play pro
football in his hometown,
along with other Jackson-
vlle ititves RasheAih
Mathis, Jamaal Fudge and '
free agent rookie Jeron
Harvey.
Fason knows the Jaguars
are already loaded at run-
ning back with Fred Taylor
and Maurice Jones-Drew as
one of the more potent
backfields in the league, but
that's not shying him away
from trying to earn a spot
on the roster.
"I'm just trying to get in,
so whatever it takes to make
the team I'm gong to do,"
said Fason, who got reps at
running back and on special
teams during the two-a-day
Friday and Saturday mini-
camp sessions.
"I'd be happy to sign a
contract today or tomorrow.
I know my place will be on
special teams and at run-
ning back in case anyone
would get hurt. I could just
come in and produce. I just
want to come out here, do
what I can do and try to
make the roster at special
teams."
Fason still keeps in touch
with his former coaches at
Fletcher as.often as possible.
"I think they have a good
thing this year," Fason said
of the current Senators.
"They may need to patch up
a couple of spots here and
there, but I think they'll be
real good this year."
