Port tells shrimpers to move


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Some shrimpers at Mayport
Village will soon have to move their
boats from property purchased by
the Jacksonville Port Authority
(JPA).
Nancy Rubin, JPA's director of
communications and public rela-
tions, said Thursday the JPA closed
on the Mat Roland Seafood Co.
property Wednesday and will allow
operable shrimp boats to dock at
the Hornblower Marine Services
property temporarily.


About five boats will relocate to
the Hornblower property, but the
remaining boats many of which
are inoperable will soon receive
notice to vacate.
If they have not left by the legal
deadline, anything remaining
becomes the property of JPA,
according to Rubin, who empha-
sized JPA "has faith that they'll fig-
ure out something for their own
private property."
JPA is issuing the notice after a
structural engineering firm deter-
mined the docks at the former


Roland property are "unsafe,"
Rubin said.
"We have to take that liability
seriously," Rubin said. "We certain-
ly did not intend to interrupt their
livelihood."
JPA is still looking into ways to
help shrimpers, but the working
shrimp boats are the first priority,
according to Rubin.
JPA decided to purchase several
acres of property in the area for
approximately $9 million to keep
its options open for a possible
cruise terminal, Rubin has said. .

Homeless

pop grows

at Beaches


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
The homeless population in Jacksonville
Beach is rising and social services agencies
are bracing for a continued increase as
more veterans return from active duty.
Jan Flager, executive director of the
Mission House in Jacksonville Beach,
Thursday said a survey of the homeless
population people conducted countywide
in late January showed a 7.7 percent
increase overall from last year.
"It is huge and it is going up every year,"
he said. "It is only going to get worse."
A one-year count of the homeless popu-
lation calculated 18,393 individuals
received services within a 12-month period.
In Duval County, 17,727 homeless indi-
viduals were counted for the year with 351
at the Beaches and 305 in Nassau County.
Flager said there were no numbers avail-
able for Clay County, who was included as
part of the survey area in 2003.'
A one-day census of the homeless popu-
lation was also conducted in late January to
create a snapshot of the number of home-
less persons on the street at a single point
in time.
On Jan. 28, 2007, a total of 2,821 home-
less individuals were counted.by volunteers
- 127 at the Beaches, 111 in Nassau
County and 72 in Clay County, said Flager.
"This represents a. 2.7 percent increase
from last year," he said.
Volunteers from the University of North
Florida, ESHC and other social services
agencies visited individuals at homeless
shelters and transitional housing facilities
as well as those on the streets to complete
the one-day count.
The ESHC has conducted an annual cen-
sus and survey for the last 17 years to meas-
ure the number and need of homeless indi-
viduals in Duval, Nassau and Clay

VA helping vets

Many home owners have

loan counselors at the
Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) are working to
reduce the number of veter-
ans defaulting on their
home loans.
"VA is reaching out to
veterans -- both those who
use our home-loan guaran-
ty program and those who
don't take advantage of our,
guaranties -- to keep people
in their homes," said
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Dr. James B. Peake. "I'm
proud of our solid record of
success in helping veterans
and active-duty personnel
deal with financial crises."
VA counselors at nine
regional loan centers can
assist people with VA-guar-
antied loans avoid foreclo-
sure through counseling
and special financing
arrangements. The coun-
selors also can assist other
veterans with financial
problems.
To obtain help from a VA
financial counselor, veter-
ans can call VA toll-free at
1-877-827-3702.

home loan guaranty pro-
gram can be obtained at

Black henna warning

The St. Johns County
Health Department warns
that there are potential
health risks associated with
temporary "black henna"
tattoos applied to the skin.
Last year, the Florida
Department of Health
received reports of 24 chil-
dren and adults who each
had a severe allergic reac-
tion from a temporary black
henna tattoo they had
applied while vacationing
in Florida.
The Health Department
warns that there is no such


thing as black henna. True
henna is made from
crushed henna leaves, pro-
ducing a green or greenish-
brown powder, which is
mixed with harmless liq-
uids, such as oil and lemon
juice, before application to
the skin.
The green or greenish-
brown paste, if left on for a
number of hours or
overnight, leaves a brown
or reddish brown finished
tattoo.
So-called black henna are
done with a paste that is
black or brownish-black
and dries more quickly than
pure henna. The dried paste
can be removed in approxi-
mately an hour, leaving a
black finished tattoo.
The potential danger is
from the black color, which
may come from black hair
dye.
Such dye may contain a
recognized allergen called
para-phenylenediamine
(PPD), which can cause
severe allergic reactions in
some persons.
Before having a tempo-
rary "black henna" tattoo
applied to your skin or your
child's skin:
Check the color of
the paste, which should be
a green or greenish-brown
Ask to see the
ingredients, which should

Tale of bird & crab


A Tale of Two Species"
will be shown on the big
screen of the Guana
Environmental Education
. Center at 10 a.m. and 1
p.m. every Saturday and
Sunday this month.
The movie tells of the red
knot, a small shorebird that
winters on the southern tip
of South America and every
year makes a 10,000-mile
journey to its nesting
grounds in the Arctic one
of the longest migrations
on Earth.
The tiny traveler's migra-
tion coincides with the
annual spawning of one of
Earth's most ancient crea-
tures, the horseshoe crab.
Horseshoe crab eggs in
the Delaware Bay fuel the
bird's journey to the Arctic,
but recently, bird numbers
have started to crash.
The story of the red knot
and the horseshoe crab is
an example of how every
species in interconnected
and each one is important,
no matter how big or small.
Admission to the
Environmental Education
Center is $2 for adults, $1
for ages 10 to 17 and free
for those younger.
The education center is

More veterans in annual count


P HOMELESS, from A-
counties.
Data collected from the
annual counts are studied to
assess the services required
to meet the needs of the
homeless community.
The Emergency Services
and Homeless Coalition of
Jacksonville, Inc. this week
released a 90-page summary
of the survey, including the
factors contributing to
homelessness such as men-
tal illness and substance
abuse.
One question asked
homeless individuals to
explain why they chose to
come to the area. Flager said
25 percent said they were
born here. Another 25 per-
cent said they had family in
the area, 30 percent came to
the area for employment
and seven percent wanted to
utilize the services offered.
"That is something that
we catch flack on all the
time but it's not right,"
Flager said. "They are
already here."
Flager said a breakdown of
the 569 total surveys, 538
were completed in Duval
County including 52 at the
Beaches, 22 in Clay County
and nine in Nassau County.
Of those surveyed, Flager
said 46.9 percent struggled
with drug and alcohol
abuse, 53.9 percent have
physical disabilities, 30.8
percent live with develop-
ment disabilities and 36.3
percent are mentally dis-
abled.
Less than 10 percent of
the homeless surveyed were
HIV positive.
"One interesting thing as
far as the number of surveys,


26 percent are veterans and
they are homeless," he said.
Flager said that percentage
is likely to rise with 400,000
people serving or returned
from the war in Iraq with
post traumatic stress disor-
der and head injuries.
"An IED blast might not
kill anyone but everyone is
going to get a concussion
from the blast," he said.
Flager said one of the
most troubling aspects is the
number of women returning
from Iraq homeless.
According to a recent VA
survey, 25 percent of the
homeless veterans are
women.
Also alarming to Flager is
the number of veterans who
are classified as the "chroni-
cally homeless." The 2007
study shows that 40 percent
of those surveyed were vet-
erans.
According to the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD),
chronic homelessness is
defined as an individual
who has been homeless four
or more times in three years
or currently homeless for
one year or more.
Flager said as the number
of foreclosures continues to
increase, so will the home-
less population.
"Florida is the number
two state in the country and
Duval is the number two
county in the state," he said.
"Think about all of the
housing that's been lost and
nothing has been built.
Nothing. We need to brace
ourselves because we ain't
seen nothing yet."

AB ready to update codes on signs, RVs


Changes will also

limit time that a

canopy or tent can

be on a property

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Atlantic Beach is eyeing
updates to its city code to
cleanptdefictemnies.
Public \ Safety Direct.or-,
David Thompson Monday
pointed out some of the
"undesirable" conditions
that are currently legal
under the existing code.
He recommended updat-
ing some sections regarding
signage temporary struc-


tures and recreational vehi-
cles.
Several businesses, espe-
cially on Mayport Road
have signs, shelves and
vending machines that
obstruct the windows, he
said.
"We can't see what's
going on," said Thompson,
explaining it presents a safe-
ty concern.
One option would be to
make it illegal for a business
.-toblock a front or street fac-
ing window unless permit-
ted, he said.
Thompson also suggested
limiting the amount of time
a temporary structure, such
as a tent or canopy, can
remain intact to four days.
Recreational vehicles


parking in front yards have.
also sparked code concerns.
Thompson showed pho-
tographs of some recre-
ational vehicles being
parked parallel to the street
because they are too large to
meet existing code require-
ments.
The current code allows
for recreational vehicles to
be parked in the front yard
as long as they remain 15
; feet from, the front'yard line.
However, some commis-
sioners were concerned
about restricting recreation-
'al vehicles from parking in
the front yard.
Commissioner John
Fletcher suggested the city
consider only making it ille-
gal to park a recreational

vehicle parallel to the street
in the front yard.
City Attorney Alan Jensen
will begin working on the
updates and bring draft
ordinances back to the com-
mission for discussion.
The commission has not
determined if they will fol-
low Thompson's sugges-
tions or make changes.
Mayor John Meserve
emphasized that public
notice is important" duringg
the process.
"We've got to ensure and
announce that we tell peo-
ple about this before second
reading," he said.
"We've really got to do
some education as we go
through this whole
process."

Kudos to our community


To the editor:
What a fantastic job our
community did in support-
ing last weekend's Alex's
Lemonade Stand
Foundation. We were .able
to raise over $7,000
through the generous sup-
port of folks throughout
our city. We want to thank
all of our donors, our vol-
unteers, our neighbors and
the local businesses (Sun
Dog Diner,' One Ocean
Resort, Jacksonville
Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu, Selva
Marina Country Club,
Bounty, Hamilton and
Company, Sticky Fingers,


Turtle Market, Spacewalk
of Jacksonville, Jewels by
Lubeck, Parker and
Pennington Dentistry and
First Street Gallery) that
helped ensure another suc-
cessful event.
Childhood Cancer is the
leading disease killer for
children under the age of
15. Alex's Lemonade Stand
Foundation has raised over
$18 million dollars
throughout the country to

City must rethink drainage


To the editor:
I hope a local landlord
can get some satisfaction
for the efforts it appears he
has made towards main-
taining a local landmark.
I recently visited the
Bali Cargo Company. Bali
is located on 2nd Ave.
south in between 3rd and
4th street and directly
across from the south
garage entrance of the new
(old) Fire Station. My visit
began by trying to get out
of my vehicle after a brief
frog strangler. I mean the
asphalt had deep potholes
full of water.
I questioned the Bali
shop owner and she said
their landlord was plan-
ning to put in a concrete
driveway. She also elabo-
rated [that] city engineers
were at fault. The fault
being poor planning and
oversight on the part of
the City of JB building
department, for not taking
into account present grade
elevations, and allowing
such a huge concrete
entrance to the garage
doors of the Fire Station,
without any consideration
of water run off complica-
tions.
I remember the building
as being the old Beaches
Printing Building. I think
the building has been
there for my 48 years as a
local.
Anyone's thought
process would be I was
here first, so if you are
going to build around me -
Keep your water on your
side"!
Recently, I drove by the
old building and noticed a


new 'concrete drive. A day
or two later, after a quick
rain, I felt the city had let
him down, because there
was a lake upon the expen-
sive newly poured drive.
The evening I drove by
the old building and saw
"Lake City of Jax Beach", I
go-.out of my vehicle and
realized the street to either
side was built up and there
was no way for the rain to
run off or drain properly. I
have to say that the city
engineers had poor plan-
ning as to the elevation of
the Fire Station versus the
elevation of the old print-
ing building. The differ-
ence in slab elevation must
be over 2 to 3 foot, which
is also compounded by the
slope and enormous size of
Fire Station's concrete
driveway. Not to mention
the asphalt on 2nd also
falls towards said building,
as well as it appears' to
either side of said property
(10 to 15 feet) the street
cuirb-'elevation is consider-
ably higher.
I feel the city has an obli-
gation to correct this prob-
lem, since there was a lack
in forethought, by at least
installing curb drains in
the firehouse drive and
taking into account south-
ern 2nd Ave. elevations. I
think this landlord has suf-
fered enough, so a solution
would be to install a storm
drain at the appropriate
spot and/or re-grade the
southern edge of 2nd Ave.
After all his building was
there first! Help him out!
Good Luck Neighbor

Dads are essential to kids


A according to the
National Fatherhood
Initiative, kids who.
grow up without dads are
more likely to grow up
poor, drop out of school,
end up in jail and
encounter numerous other:
struggles in life than kids"
who grow up with dads do.
This information comes
as no shock to most men.
We know-, that boys are
prone to stupidity and that
the creature best suited to
taming them is the like-
fninded fellow called dad.
When I was five, my
father told me to stop
jumping around the tub,
but I did so anyway. I
slipped and hit my head on
a ceramic soap dish. It bust-
ed into a dozen pieces. My
father responded to my stu-
pidity the way he often did.
"Son of a!!!"
I pretended to be hurt,
but he knew I was fine. He
knew a noggin as hard as
mine could have busted a
dozen soap dishes without.
so much as a bruise.
Breaking things was one of
my talents.
Over the years, I clogged
a toilet with an apple core,
shattered a picture window
with a baseball and hit a
golf ball through a neigh-.


bor's window (I
fled, was later
.apprehended,
and had to mow
a lot of lawns to
pay my father
back for the cost
of a new win-
dow).
I made it hard
for my father to
fix the things I1
broke though
This is because I
lost many of his
tools over the
years. I was per-


TUM P
COLL


mitted to use
them to build shacks and
go-carts, so long as I .put
them back where they
belonged. ,
But I didn't always put
them back. He'd usually
find them lying in the yard
-- after hitting them with
the lawnmower blade --
which prompted a familiar
reaction.
"Son of a !!!"*
When I was a teen, I
destroyed more expensive
items, such as automobiles.
My father made the mistake
of purchasing a 1979 Ford
Pinto with a powerful six-.
cylinder motor -- it could
burn rubber at will.
When he discovered that
a right-rear tire only six


weeks old
was worn to
the threads,
he had but
o n e
response.
"Son of a
S. .; !!!"
In addi-
tion to cost-
l ing him
money, I
saw it as my
duty to butt
heads with
URCELL him -- or, to
JMNIST be more pre-
cise, it was
his duty to butt heads with
me. He grew up without, a
father and he remembered
the dumb things he did in
his youth.
He knew that most any
boy is only one or two
knuckle-headed decisions
away from heading off in a
dangerous direction. His
job was to keep me in line,
a task that was often'
unpleasant for him.
In high school, I began
making a lot of money. un-
ning a stone-masonry busi-
ness, and I announced I was
going to buy my own car.
But the unenlightened old
man made me do some-
thing stupid with the'
money: save it for college. I


was furious and fought him
hard, but he wouldn't
relent,
The friction my father
caused me, I now know, was
also the basis for my respect
for him. A father gives a boy
someone to look up to and
model himself after. And all
that friction over.the years
polishes an average lump of
coal into a diamond.
I'm glad people are doing
studies that confirm what a
lot of folks have always
known about fathers. When
boys don't have committed
fathers to agitate -- and
when caring fathers aren't
around to inflict unpleas-
antness on their sons -- the
result is too often tragic.
When dads are around,
things work out in. the end.
My dad had the satisfaction
of seeing me turn out all
right. A few -years after I
graduated from college- and
bought my first nice car, I
let him take a drive. He
revved the motor, dropped
the transmission into gear,
then burned rubber all the
way up the road.
I had but one thing to say
to that. ,

Starting college teaches lessons


After a -long absence, I
have returned from the
place where few ever return;
namely, college. To be fair, I
didn't exactly "go away" to
college I went to the.
University of North Florida,
where school spirit can be
expressed in a single dra-
-matic "SWOOP". That is,
unfortunately, about the
extent of my school spirit,
even though the UNF foot-
ball team remains undefeat-
ed as of this writing.
In any case, I lived in the
UNF dorms and as such
learned many -important
lessons about life, liberty,
and the pursuit of Denny's
at midnight. The demand
for "College Life Guides" is
intense and overpriced, but
frankly I've found that most
of the guidelines they give
you are lanie. So, in hopes.
that you, the, many fine.


graduates 'of
local high
schools who
intend, to go i,:
away to col-
-lege, don't suf- /
fer the same
fate as me, here
are a few guide- I Lt i
lines to help
you survive liv-
ing away from

ground) at three in the

)LUMNIST It may: seem
like a good
idea at the
time, but when the neigh-
bors start complaining with
their fists things can get
ugly fast.
However, if there's some-
thing that can sour a rela-
tionship more than happy
feet, it's someone else's cere-
al. When you first move in,
with strangers, you may


realize that you forgot food
and consider it your right to
mooch off of your more
prepared roommate. This is
a false assumption! They
may agree to let you have
some cereal, but they are
not giving you carte
blanche for their entire
larder. I guarantee you that
eating their food is the fast
track to passive-aggressive
roommate terrorism,
including but not limited to
peanut butter in your sheets
and showering in the dark.
Leave their food alone and
none of that will be yours.
That's all for now, but the
Things I Wish I'd Learned
After Graduation will con-
tinue as there are still many,
many things I wished. I'd
.learned after graduation.
Good luck!

T h e
Jacksonville
Beach resi-

of the association and serves
as chair of the IACS Board of
Accredit g ,-- n as

The city of Jacksonville
Beach has issued the sound
permit for Beach Marine after
failing to renew the permit
for six months without
explanation.
Planning and
Development Director Steve
Lindorff last week said the
permit was issued when
marina staff agreed to rope
off the area where sound
would generate from an adja-
cent restaurant that is not
permitted to have live music.
Fast Boys Pierside leases
space from Beach Marine and
received conditional use
approval for outdoor seating
from the Planning
Commission with the stan-
dard condition that no
amplified music be allowed
on the deck.
"We needed to know how
much space Fast Boys' out-
door dining area was and
how they proposed to
demark it." he said. "We need
to make sure we were issuing
a permit that would not cross
over both businesses because
Fast Boys is not allowed any
music."
City Attorney Steve


Stratford said last month that
the issue was "not a point of
contention but a matter of
clarification."
"There are a number of
points that need to be clari-
fied. We need to see how
much of the deck is being
rented out to Fast Boys,"
Stratford said. "If I have that
than the problem is solved."
David Siddall, chief finan-
cial officer for Beach Marine,
said the portion of the lease
"that was relevant" to the sit-
uation was provided and a
written letter was submitted
to Stratford stating they
would install a rope barrier
delineating the separation of
the deck space.
"Why the city-is,-suddenly-.-
so interested in our lease is..a
mystery because it's the city
that determines the outdoor
space, he said.
Beach Marine owner Ken
Taylor appealed to the City
Council June 2 to help
resolve what he considered a
"ridiculous" impasse.
"We've been at the beach
for a long time. It is an enter-
tainment spot," he said.
"That's what people do, they
listen to music."

AB chief says e-mail advisory has some truth


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
An e-mail circulating
throughout the Beaches is
cautioning female drivers to
beware of a flat tire scam.
The e-mail outlines several
incidents of women being
followed by another vehicle
in which the driver claims
the woman has a flat tire
and attempts to make her


pull over. .
Although the details of
the e-mail are not con-
firmed, Atlantic Beach Police
Chief David Thompson veri-
fied one account involving
an Atlantic Beach woman
being followed on her way
, home several weeks ago.
The woman pulled into
the police station and the
car drove away. Police were
able to catch the drivers who


claimed they were the
woman's friends and wanted
to make sure she got home
safely.
The woman did not know
the drivers, according to the
e-mail.
The e-mail also warns that
some of the women have
been assaulted when they
pull their vehicles over, but
Thompson said there have
been no reports of any


assaults or actual crimes
committed.
Thompson said many e-
mails of this nature have "a
piece of truth," but that
most of the information is
exaggerated as it is passed
along.
However, he said there are
typically one to two inci-
dents per year of people
reporting another car fol-
lowing them, he said.

headlines

Let's see, Big Brown
skips his monthly
injection of Winstrol
V and finishes dead last in
the Belmont. Baseball
implements drug testing in
2005 and Sammy Sosa hits
.271 with 14 homers, his
worst season ever. And yet,
there are still plenty of peo-
ple who believe steroids
don't help performance.
Must be the same folks
who attend Flat Earth
Society meetings.

The NBA has a big ol'
mess on its hands with
the latest accusations of
referees fixing'a 2002
playoff series and "pro-
tecting" star players by
not whistling them for
technical fouls. There has
long been a public per-
ception that officials can
unfairly influence the
outcome of games, but
such whispers came from
those outside the NBA.
Now, it's a former referee
(one facing time in Club
Fed for betting on games,
nind you) saying it and
giving the innuendo
some credence.

Evandqr Holyfield should
run for the U.S. Senate. The
45-year-old boxer has
apparently blown through
$250 million in career
earnings, resulting in fore-
closure on his $10 million,
54,000-square-foot house.
With spending habits like
that, he'd be a natural in
D.C.

The preseason hype
about Tim Tebow was
over the top last year, but
at least tolerable. Now,,
following his Heisman-
winning 2007 campaign,
a visit to the newsstand
reveals the Florida QB's
visage peering back from
nine different magazine
covers.

Interesting historical fact:
It was Greg Norman who,
in 1990, first proposed
moving The Players
Championship from March
to May. "That would give
us five months of exciting
golf," the Australian, and
then No. 1 player in the
world, said.

Red Sox pitcher Curt
Schilling had some primo
seats for Game 2 of the
NBA Finals in Boston,
right behind the Lakers
bench. After hearing Kobe
Bryant rip his teammates
for not playing hard
enough, Schilling blasted
the Lakers star on his"
blog. Told of the matter,
Bryant said: "You're ask-
ing my response to it? Go
Yankees!"

War of words: After Tiger
Woods dismissed the
Stanley Cup Finals by say-
ing "I don't think anybody
really watches hockey any-
more," NBC broadcaster
and former Boston Bruin
Mike Milbury let loose.
"I'm gonna change the'
name now. It's gonna be
Tiger Wuss. Here's a guy
that took about three
months to get over a sim-
ple arthroscopic surgery.
You look at [Penguins for-
ward] Ryan Malone. His
face exploded with a slap
shot. . he's back out in 10
minutes. Keep your yap
shut, Tiger, or I'll send a
couple of wingers down
there to tidy you up a little
bit, meathead."

ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Marlee Harris was a middle
school version of Babe Didrikson
Zaharias.
The rising high school freshman
competed in nine sports the past
two years at Fletcher Middle
School and helped lead her club
soccer team to the state final four
this spring.
The Jacksonville Beach resident


also held a cumu-
lative 3.9 grade-
point average,
while almost
never missing a
day of school.
"What she did
is extremely
rare," said
Fletcher Middle
athletic director
Lynn Nevin, who
coached Harris in
volleyball.
"She picked
[volleyball] up
right away. She's
very coachable."
Considered the
greatest all-
around female
athlete of her

time, Zaharias was an Olympic
medalist in track and field, an All-
American in woman's basketball
and a professional women's golfer.
She died in 1956. .
Harris is like Zaharias, but on a
smaller scale. Still, her sports feats
are no less deserving of acclaim.
The most valuable female athlete
at Fletcher Middle this past school
year, Harris, 14, was the MVP in
girls soccer and girls track and co-
MVP in girls basketball.
She scored 18 goals and had 19
assists for the 11-0-1 conference
championship soccer squad, con-
tributing to 60 percent of the
team's scoring output.
In track, she won the mile and
the half mile to pace 'the Fletcher
girls to an undefeated track season.
A scholar-athlete, Harris compet-
ed in five sports as a seventh grad-
er. She didn't come out for swim-


ming this spring to save her legs
for track and club soccer.
In mid-May, Harris' 14-and-
under club team, the Creeks Clash
Blue, advanced to the semifinals of
the U.S. Youth Soccer Florida State
Cup tournament.
A striker on the traveling team,
Harris scored a goal in the quarter-
finals.
"We went to tournaments 10
weekends in a row at the end of
the school year," said Jane Harris,
Marlee's mother.
"I don't know
how she does it all.
I'm tired from just
do a lot of keeping up with
her schedule."
e if I like Harris plays club.
hard but I soccer year round.
She attends prac-
Ides up. I tice two nights a
score the week, and often
does her home-
soccer and work on the car
cited in the ride over to
Julington Creek.
For volleyball
and basketball
practice at Fletcher
Middle, Harris had
Harris to be up at the
crack of dawn for
6:45 a.m. practice.
What helps is that she lives only a
block away from the school's front
entrance.
"I never have to wake her. She
makes her own breakfast," Jane
Harris, a former college swimmer
and tennis player, said.
"Her father played basketball in
high school. He's 6 feet 2."
Tall and lanky, Harris didn't back
down on the basketball court, a
sport she never played before mid-
dle school.
According to her coach, Kim
Massar, Harris took more than her
share of charges from opposing

Storm brews up a winning formula


by DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

When the Ponte Vedra Soccer
Club's Storm team decided to play
against tougher competition, it was
supposed to simply be a test to
determine where the team stood
from a competitive standpoint.
Instead, the Storm came away
with the Under-13 girls state cham-
pionship in the Florida.State Cup.
Apparently, the Storms stands at
the top.
After the Storm began winning
various tournaments and got a bet-
ter understanding of its potential to
compete at the highest level, head
coach Eric Andrew took his team of
talented girls and joined the Florida
State Soccer League, home to the
most competitive travel teams in
the state.
The end result was a nice little
present for the coach.
"It's a huge step in the right
direction," Andrew said. "We didn't
know what to expect. We have such
dedicated and talented girls."
The U-13 Storm won and placed
well in numerous tournaments
across the sate including the First
Coast Labor Day Shootout in
Jacksonville, in which it faced some
of the top teams in the state and
came out on top.
Andrew entered his team into the
FSSL and it went .500 in those
games. The team took the winter
off and got back into training in
February of this year.
Coaches gave all the players a pil-
'low case with "The Dream Begins
Here" inscribed on it, something
Andrew says "they can think about
before they go to sleep every
night."
When Andrew saw who his team
would be playing in the state tour-
nament, he knew his girls had their
work cut out for them.
"When the draw came out, we
saw we had the toughest draw,"
Andrew said. "We knew we had a
good team but now we had to go
up against some really good teams.
There are all those big clubs from
the Miami area and the Orlando
area. There's such a big draw and its
all very competitive."
The Storm starting coasting
through its first few rounds, find-
ings itself in the Sweet 16 where
players would face Melbourne
Tsunami, a team they had beaten 9-
0 earlier in the season. The Storm
won and watched the following
game anxiously to see who they'd
be up against in the Elite Eight.
They met Hillsborough County

U-13 team that won a championship in the Florida State Cup.


United in the following round, and
won 3-1.
"That was huge," Andrew said.
"That win against HCU meant we
were in the Final Four."
The Storm would take on Space
Coast United a team it had lost
to twice in FSSL play in the
Florida State Cup semifinal round
and went on to win 4-0, leading to
a bid for the state championship.
The Ponte Vedra team faced Real
Salt Lake Florida, a squad that fin-
ished second to the Storm in Group
D during the preliminary rounds.
The soccer clubs had met twice
before, once resulting in a 2-2 draw
and the other time with Storm
emerging as 1-0 winners.
"That just shows how tough our
draw was," Andrew said, "by having
both finalists from the same
group."
Ponte Vedra would go on to win


3-1 and bring a state championship
to the area, one of the first for
North Florida in a tough age group.
"The U-13 group is one of the
toughest to win in," Andrew said.
"After this age, there aren't that
many teams around, since most
girls go off and start to do other
things."
The Storm attracts players from
all over north Florida. Members
include players from St. Augustine,
Fernandina Beach, Orange Park and
Jacksonville, as well as from the
Beaches and Ponte Vedra.
Andrew says his team is truly a
team, with no individual player
dominating.
"Every player made a contribu-
tion towards the state champi-
onship," he said. "No one dominat-
ed throughout. They all played at
the same level. Every player was a
standout on this team."


And Storm garnered the first state
title for PVSC, which had two
teams go to the final four last year.
"We want to be one of the pre-
mier teams in the Southeast,"
Andrew said. "This championship
put us on the map. People are start-
ing to notice what we're doing.
."Our players are some the most
technical players in the state, at
least that's what we're being told."
Being able to attract. girls from a
large area is also important to the
team; it lets the coaches know
they've built a recognizable pro-
gram that players want to be a part
of.
Andrew explains that while some
of his players may live far apart,
they've bonded through soccer.
One member of the team is a
great-granddaughter of Vince
Lombardi, according to Andrew.
Another, Mary Sturgis, is the
younger sister of former Nease star
and current Major League Soccer
player Nathan Sturgis as well as
Florida Gators kicker Caleb Sturgis.
That's just a sample of the talent-
ed backgrounds many players bring
to the Storm.
"Part of it is people want to be on
a winning team," Andrew said.
"They want to strive to be good.
They want to play in state tourna-
ments. They know they will be
properly trained. We have coaches
that are well educated in the sport."
Andrew is the head coach and
has a broad background in soccer.
He was an assistant at Texas Tech
University and also was a head
coach at Orange Park High School.
He has won a national title as a
player in 3v3 soccer and has
coached a team to the finals at the
nation level.
The Storm girls, who comprise
three 3v3 teams recently played in
the Jacksonville Super Challenge at
Davis Park, a qualifier for the 3v3
Challenge Nationals at Disney
World. One team played up in the
U-14 age group and won. The oth-
ers were U-13 finalists.
"We use the 3v3 to keep playing
soccer and to keep challenging
them," Andrew said. "It makes
them work harder. If they make a
mistake, they get scored on."
The team next moves into U-14
play, still aiming for national recog-
nition.
"The team goes to the next age
group and can now compete for a
national title," Andrew said. "We'll
attend some prestigious events and
just go from there. We want to be
the [premier] girls program in
North Florida."

Exhibit shines light on Beaches surf history


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
Vintage surfing pho-
tos, films, surfboards
and memorabilia will
display the history of surf-
ing at the Beaches at the
Beaches Museum & History
Center this summer.
Beginning with a kickoff
party Saturday night featur-
ing many local surfing leg-
ends, the community is
invited to follow the histo-
ry of surfing in the area.
"For the older guys who
have been around, this is a
great recap, a great reminis-
cence of their surfing
lives," said Mitch
Kaufmann, a Beaches
native who helped create
the exhibit.
"For the young kids and
anybody who didn't grow
up here, they'll get to see
the rich surfing history we
have here. Jacksonville is
producing more champs
now than any other place
on the East
Coast."
The grand
opening gala
is Saturday
from 7 p.m.
until 11 p.m.
The cost for
*the gala is
$10 per per-
son in
advance; $15
at the door.
Food will be'
provided by

The history of surfing


Photo by DAVID SILVER
Joe Roland looks to hang five in this vintage photo from 1966. Roland was among a tal-
ented group of surfers that emerged from the Jacksonville Beach area in the 1960s and
early 1970s.


I


exhibit will
run through
Sept. 28.
Kaufmann
and Tim Ellis,
vice president
of the board
for the
Beaches
Museum &
History
Center,
teamed to cre-
ate the-surf-
ing history
exhibit.
The
Fletcher High
grads, Ellis in
1970 and
r e Kaufmann in
1977, met
through their
involvement
with local
surfing organ-
ization the WaveMasters
Society. [Kaufmann is also


the director of the North
Florida district of the
Eastern Surfing
Association].
"I learned about the
treasure trove of photos
that Mitch had so we
talked and thought it was a
great opportunity to get
the surfing community
together and enjoy it's his-
tory and simultaneously
get folks to see the muse-
um,"' said Ellis.
"Surfing really came on
in a big way here through-
out the 1960s. It's a big
sport not only at the
Beaches but throughout
Jacksonville and the area."
Kaufmann said most of
the photographs displayed
are the works of photogra-
phers David Silver and
Thom Hamilton. Silver
documented much of the
local surfing in the -1960s
in black-and-white still


shots and film. Hamilton
was the "premier" surf
photographer in the area in
the 1970s and 1980s.
"Hamilton did a great
job of getting Jacksonville
surfers in the magazines all
over the world," Kaufmann
said. "Back then the place
to surf was the old pier and
then in the '70s we called
it Access Five, that was the
best break. Now we call it
'The Poles' [in Hanna
Park]."
Kaufmann said another
aspect of surfing in the late
1960s and early 1970s was
the notion of the "surf
star."
"There were a few guys
who blew everybody away:
Bruce Clelland, Joe Roland,
Larry Miniard, Dick
Rosborough and Clay
Bennett were like legends
in their own time,"
Kaufmann said.

.In 1971, at age 16, Clay Bennett, seen above riding a five-foot twin fin in large Caribbean surf, was already being paid
by Hobie Surfboards just to surf.

Women more susceptible to stress fractures


This past week I saw a
young woman who is
now about 10 weeks
into her new exercise pro-
gram. She has been run-
ning, lifting weights, and
doing aerobics.
She had begun to develop
pain in the middle of her
leg, without sustaining any
injury. She described pain
that increased as the day
went on, and that was
made worse by her running
and jumping. It didn't
bother her at rest, and did-
n't wake her up at night.
Her physical exam
revealed no specific or
unusual findings, other
than tenderness along the
bone. X-rays were then
obtained, and these too
were normal.
At this point, I told her
that I believed she had a
tibial stress fracture. I could
tell that this diagnosis took
her by surprise. She was

SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


young, healthy, and in
,good shape.
"How could I get a stress
fracture?" she asked.
Most commonly seen in
runners, stress fractures typ-
ically occur when the ath-
lete changes something
about his or her training
regimen. A sudden increase
Hn the number of days of


training per week, or an
increase in miles run per
week is a common history
reported by those with
stress injuries.
Also, a change in seasons,
a change in surface, such as
from the tennis courts to
the basketball court, can
lead to stress fractures.
I often will see these as
well in people who decide
to suddenly start exercising
after a period of inactivity
and simply do too much
too fast. This change rapid-
ly increases the demands on
the bone, and it simply can-
not handle it. The bone
therefore begins to break
down, developing micro-
scopic fractures begin, and
causing pain.
The lower leg is involved
in approximately 50 percent
of all stress fractures.
Tennis, gymnastics, track
and field, and basketball are
the sports most commonly
associated with stress frac-


tures.
Because the fractures are
only microscopic at first,
regular x-rays will be often
normal, as they were in my
athlete. I therefore ordered
an MRI to confirm my sus-
picions.
Another test that could
provide additional informa-
tion is a bone scan, but this
would provide less overall
information.
Stress fractures are seen'
more commonly in female
athletes than males. Factors
that lead to an increased
risk in women include poor
diet or eating disorders, and
irregular periods, and a
woman's overall lower bone
mass as compared to men.
Any athlete is at risk for
overload injury and the
development of stress frac-
tures. Younger age does not
necessarily protect you from
this injury
My athlete's bone scan
confirmed her stress frac-

Tony Award-nominated musical opening today at Players by the Sea Community Theater in Jacksonville Beach.





Bluesy musical at PBTS


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
P players by the Sea Community '
Theater wraps up its 2007-2008
Main Stage productions with the
Tony Award-nominated music
revue "Blues in the Night."
The dialogue-free, Sheldon Epps musical
runs at 8 p.m. today and Saturday and 2
p.m. Sunday at 106 6th St. N., Jacksonville
Beach. Tickets are $25. -
The artistic director of the Pasadena
Playhouse, Epps is best known as the cre-
ator and director of the Duke Ellington
musical, "Play On!," which was nominated .
for three Tony Awards in 1997.
According to his bio, Epps, a former
actor and TV director, and the late Gregory Hines origi-
nally staged "Blues in the. Night" in New York in 1980.
The show made its Broadway premiere in 1982.
The musical also ran for more than a year on London's
West End, where it was nominated for a Laurence Olivier
Award for best'musical of the year in 1987.
Epps' blues-drenched and jazz-painted elegy to, the vul-
nerable solitude of four struggling people in 1938
Chicago, the musical features a compilation of 26 torchy
blues songs that frame and comment on the relationships
of three women and one man.


The cast features Melody Jackson, Amy
Allen Farmer, Nina Waters and Eugene
Lindsey.
Directed by Jason Collins with musical
direction by Aaron Marshall, the musical
includes songs by Bessie Smith, Duke
Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen,
B Alberta Hunter, Jimmy Cox and Ida Cox.
According to a Players release, "the
selections are raunchily forthright, infec-,
1 0 tiously good-humored and always classi-
cally blues."
The song list features "When A Woman
Loves A Man," "Wasted Life Blues,"
"Lover Man," "Wild Women Don't Have
The Blues," and the title song, "Blues in
the Night."
The setting takes place in a seedy Chicago hotel at the
deserted corner of Wilson and Broadway.
"The songs have been specifically chosen to celebrate a
period and style of American music and to explore the
influences and the roots of the jazz idiom as they grew
from blues music," a press release says..
"Blues in the Night" has reportedly been performed in
more than 100 regional theaters.
Additional performances are June 19-22 and June 26-
28. For reservations, call 249 0289, or visit playersbythe-

Jax Shell


Show &


Fair this


weekend


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
One of the exhibitors at
the Jacksonville Shell Club's
42nd annual Shell Show &
Fair this weekend at the
Morocco Shrine Auditorium
is a relative newcomer to
shell collecting.
Antiques dealer Mary
Robertson, who owns Not
Just Chairs in Jacksonville
Beach, works with shells as
a sidelight.
Robertson display her
work at her shop at 215 4th
Ave. S.
The soft-spoken woman
has won awards for her
shell-decorated mirrors and
lamps. She also uses, among
other items, picture frames,
candlesticks, tables and
chandeliers, to which she
attaches shells, coral and
other forms of sea life.
"Decorator art is what I
do," Robertson said. "What
I'm selling a lot of now is lit-
tle 5-inch mirrors. I'm sell-
ing as many as 30 a
month."
Robertson got interested
in shelling when she was
growing up in South
Georgia. In 1955, she
received a book on shells for
Christmas. Vacations to
Florida beaches also piqued
her interest in the hobby
"It was a thrill to go out
on the beach and pick up
shells. Still is," Robertson
said.
"I still don't know a lot
about shells, don't know
the scientific side, but I do
know beauty. I know what i
like."
In early March, Robertson
took four first places, a sec-
ond and a third at a shell
show in Sanibel Island.
Her winning entries came
in the mirror, lamp, minia-
ture mosaic and large deco-
ration categories.
Robertson, who has lived
in Florida for 30 years, said
she started shell decorating
in earnest about two years
ago.
Robertson said the first
big mirror she ever made
"sold instantly."
Now she decorates at least
one large mirror every year.
This weekend marks
Robertson's second time.at
the shell club's annual show
& fair, which runs from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday at 3800 St. Johns
Bluff Road. Admission is $5
for adults, $4 for seniors
and $3 for children ages 5-
12. For more details, visit

S tellers Gallery Annex

7200 for information.
Last Friday night one of
the most beautiful exhibits
of photography I have seen
opened at First Street
Gallery in Neptune Beach.
I could not believe these
works were photography.
They looked like oil or
acrylic paintings on can-
vas. Both muted and bright
colors blended into one
another as oils and water-
colors do.
Steve Vaughn's best
works were horizontal in
sizes approximately 20
inches by 40 inches. The
subject matter portrayed
tropical vistas, birds, palm
trees, sky and water. This
exhibit is worth a trip to
First Street Gallery at 216-B
First Street, Neptune Beach.
Call 141-6928.
"Jet Set works by
Strosser" will be on display
at the Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra through July
5. These works are not
paintings, sculptures or
installations, but a series of
boxes about 18 inches by
30 inches each with a dif-
ferent construction or
drawing inside.
An explanation by the
artist of what he was try-
ing to create would be
helpful.
"The Art of Doing
Business" is a series of"
inforinmative and education-6

ing artists, art organiza-
tions and active non-profit
cultural groups.
As a member of the
Cultural Center these edu-
cational classes are free or
at a reduced fee. The first
program will take place
Wednesday, June 18, from
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at
the Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra.
This session focuses on
how to make the right
impression.. Nothing is
more critical to your acting
success than professional-
ism, whether it is deter-
mining the proper net-
working opportunities,
developing your acting
routine, getting the'right
head shots or arriving on
set for the first time, these
actions require polish and
finesse.
These sessions will be
helpful to all interested in
the acting profession.
Potters will be interested in
a workshop by University
of North Florida professor
-Nofa Dixon to be held at
the Center on June 21

The event runs from 2
p.m. to 6 p.m. at 11 N. 2nd
Street. The 40-city tour, now
in its fourth year, is a pro-
social, pro-lifestyle program
designed to motivate, ener-
gize and educate kids ages 6-
11 about healthy living
choices by using the power
of Cartoon Network's shows
and brands.
At each stop of the Tour,


kids will have the opportu-
nity to engage in physical
activities that promote the
message of keeping in
shape. Activities will
include a kickball station,
tennis challenge, obstacle
course, bicycle race, bowling
challenge and limbo compe-
tition.
All activities will be,
thenied around Cartoon
Network's line-up of original
cartoon series including Ben.

Imaginary Friends and My
Gym Partner's a Monkey.
The Tour will make 40.stops
across the United States
through Sept. 7.

present a new activity based
on their Spot the Block cam-
paign, an on-air and online

"We are pleased to partner
with Cartoon Network to
help educate our communi-
ty's children about healthy
living choices," said Marilyn

It's unfair to compare a BMW

So please do.


The Ultimate

b


Lease: 36 months I Due at Signing: $0 Payment: $459


Comparison shopping is a bit of a hassle when the 3 series is involved. For starters,
no other luxury car has been named to Car and Driver's 10 Best list for 17 years
in a row., And, if that wasn't enough, there's also "BMW Ultimate Service", the only
no-cost service plan in the industry. Which, again, the competition doesn't have. So,
we're sorry if that makes comparing vehicles difficult. On the other hand, it should
make deciding which car to buy a lot easier.

BMW Ultimate Service"
Pay nothing. 4 yeara/50,000 miles. The most comprehensive maintenance plan (Including wear and tear Items) In Its class.**

*Special Lease or Financing available through BMW financial services on the new 2008 BMW 3281 Sedan vehicle. Offer valid through June 30, 2008. BMW 328i Sedan monthly lease
payment $469 for 36 months, 10k per year, based on MSRP of $34,450. $0 due at lease signing, includes $0 security deposit (total lease payments due $16,904). Excludes tax, title,
license, and registration fees. Lease financing subject to credit approval. Dealer contribution may affect terms. Lessee must cover insurance and all items not covered under the full
maintenance program. At lease end, lessee will be liable for disposition fee ($350), any excess wear and use as set forth In the lease agreement and excess mileage charges of $.20

Live better on the money you already have


Dollar stretching ideas

FROM CONTRIBUTOR
Be Selective
Save a lot of money with a battery tester. I went into
a battery store and bought a little black 2" x I" battery
tester for $6.99. We have a Wii game and the controllers
each take four batteries and one time al 1 of the con-
trollers went out. I checked each battery with the tester
and only one was low in each controller. I thought of
how many people replace all of the batteries! Since I
recycle my batteries, I went through the entire contain-
er and checked each battery and discovered that 3/4 of
them were still good. This battery tester has a red and
green meter on it and tests all types of batteries. It's a
great little investment. Why pay for something that
may still be good?

Make-Up Sponges
If you use natural sponges to apply make-up, check
for sponges at art or craft supply stores, such as
Michaels or Hobby Lobby. These are the same natural
sponges you get at the cosmetics counter or drug store,
but they're cheaper. You can buy a bag of small sponges
for under $5 at a craft store, but you'd pay about that
much for one sponge at the drug store.
Also, instead of cotton squares for removing eye
make-up, I use the soft microfiber cloths that come free
with eyeglasses or sunglasses. I can use one for a few
days and then toss it in the wash with the towels. These
cloths are soft enough for the eye area, and they are
indestructible, as I've put them through the wash a few
dozen times now.

Bonus Money
Getting paid weekly, I budget on 48 weeks (four pay-
checks a month) rather than 52 weeks. I hardly notice
the difference across my budget items until it comes to
those extra four paychecks per year and having that
money to spend as "extra." Those four checks get ear-
marked for really unusual expenses that might come
up, get put into savings or are used for a vacation.

Discount Grocery Store Bags
I do quite a bit of shopping at one of the very low
cost groceries where we either bring our own bags or
purchase theirs and then bag our own groceries. I save
a paper towel roller when'the towels are used up, fill the
empty cardboard "container" with used bags from other
shopping trips and stash it under the seat in my vehi-
cle.
It's surprising the number of bags that tube wilf hold,
and there's no mess. The bags are always available when
I go to this discount store. With supplemental runs to
other groceries, of course, I always seem to have a ready
supply to replenish that semi-empty tube.
Ruth Ann

Summer Play Clothes
Every spring I look forward to the warmer weather
and "new" spring/summer clothes. Often these are sim-
ply last year's spring or summer clothes pulled out of a
box, but I need to fill in those gaps every year when
children have grown or things have worn out. This
year, with the rising gas and food prices, I have felt a
need to cut back on things. Looking at the winter
clothes I was packing away or giving away, I got an idea.
First, I put away things that would still be nice and fit
someone next fall.
Then I took a look at all tl qosepants with worn knees
and long sleeved-t-shirts that had- seen better days. I got


out my scissors and started to cut. Long sleeved shirts
became short sleeved shirts and pants were soon
cropped, capris or shorts, depending on where the
holes were located. One or two items will need a patch
or a strategic bit of dying, etc, but I managed to trans-
form worn out school clothes into quite presentable
play clothes for summer. A little hemming around the
edges and I'm finished!

All for One and One for All
My family travels alot and often visits science centers.
Last year we went to one in Virginia and the gentleman
suggested that we consider a membership. We were not
from that area but when he mentioned that with your
membership you would also have free admission to
over 200 other science centers around the US and in
other countries, we signed up. Over the course of the
year we saved more than the cost of the membership by
going to other science centers. This past weekend we
went to a science center in New York, purchased a
membership for $55 and got free admission to the local
zoo and discovery center. If we had paid for admissions
to the three places it would have cost us. $67. The
membership paid for itself in one weekend.

From One Onion
Don't throw away that sprouting onion! Pop it into
some water (just covering the root end) in an old tin on
the windowsill, and you will not need to buy spring
onions or chives again. My "original" onion is now six
months old and has been "joined" by others, and they
just keep on producing more and more sprouts. I have
gotten to the stage where I have filled three small plas-
tic bags in a month and use them to flavor mashed
potatoes. It's yummy and free!

Critter Control
My boyfriend lives out in the country and occasion-
ally gets groundhogs, skunks, etc. that burrow in his
yard. I buy a large tin of common black pepper (cheap-
est I can find) and dump a good amount down the
hole(s). Do this only during the day for skunks since
they are nocturnal. Stay away from the area for a day or
two. One treatment takes care of the problem. It also
works the same for the chipmunks that make a mess
burrowing in my front yard.

Before You Call the Repair Service
When I have an issue with my appliances, like wash-
ing machine or even the coffee maker, I have often
saved a service call by doing the following. I go to a
search engine and type in the appliance name and the
symptoms. Many times, I have found that it is a com-
mon problem, and people have offered simple instruc-
tions on how to fix it. In some cases, it is a simple
adjustment that you just need to know where to find
the screw to tighten or the panel to take off and clean
behind. Other times, I have found that I can fix it by
replacing a part that costs less than $50.
Many times, this has even included detailed instruc-
tions on where to order the part and how to install it. I
have also found out occasionally that it is a complex
problem that costs more to fix than to replace the item,
or it is a complicated or delicate repair that requires an
expert and well worth the service call charge.
Sometimes, it doesn't give me any help, but since it
takes only a minute and doesn't cost anything, I'm not
any worse off for doing it!
I have even done this with my computer when I start
getting weird messages. I type in the message and find
that it is a simple fix, find that it is a complex fix I dqn't .,
want to mess with, or find nothing at all.
