Twelve veais after St. Johns
County voters decided to go
from a-seven-member County
Commission to a five-member
board, they'll have a chance to
switch back to seven commis-
sioners this fall.
The St. Johns County
Commission voted unani-
mously last week to place a ref-
erendum on the November bal-
lot to let voters decide whether
to change county government
back to the way it was for 10
years, until 2000.
That was when the former
was completely changed to a
five-member board, each elect-
ed by all county voters, which
was OK'd by voters in 1994..
If approved, this year's meas-
ure would return the structure
to the way it was in the 1990s:
instead being chosen county-
wide, five would be chosen by
district, and two would be
elected by all county voters.
"That's a decision that the
people can make,"
Commissioner Ben Rich, who
presented the referendum pro-
posal at the March 21 County
Commission meeting, said last
From 194-5 to 1990, the St.
Johns County Commission
consisted of five members,

When Ponte Vedra resident

herself as a contestant on tele-

be like she's living the experi-

"It's just so fast," Hoffman,

of fame fielding answers from
Alex Trebek, host of the
show that premiered in 1984.
Hoffman said she plans to
watch the show, which airs at

MacCool's Irish Pub &

lot of things, and I'm a good
guesser," Hoffman said this

from her office in Jacksonville

the American Cancer Society.

Frustrated by what they say
is lack of responsiveness by
county commissioners, a com-
mittee told members of the
Ponte Vedra Beaches Coalition
this week that a switch to char-
ter government could help.
Coalition member Tina
MNcGough and Jerry Cameron,
legislative aide to County
Commissioner Ben Rich.
explained a charter govern-
ment proposal at Monday's
Coalition meeting at the Ponte
Vedra Beach Branch Library.
One of the provisions of
charter government allows an
elected official to be recalled
from office by a vote of the
McGough and Cameron
stressed that over the next year,
the notion of charter govern-
ment could be presented to
other civic groups as propo-
nents refine the charter docu-
ment with input from resi-
They are aiming to have a
charter referendum on the
November 2008 ballot.
"We want to know if we're
on target or not," McGough
told fellow Coalition members
Under the proposed charter
government, elected county
officials would be limited to
two, four-year terms and the
current $500 limit on cam-
paign contributions would be
Also, campaign contribu-
tions would have to be filed
electronically, which would
allow the public to view the
contributions online and ana-
lyze them easily.,
The proposal also includes a
provision requiring candidates
to live in the district they are
running for before an election
- as opposed to moving into
the district no later than sLx
months after being elected, as
is currently required.
Among those giving feed-
back Monday was George
Taylor, a veteran and a member
of a committee that looked at
moving to a charter govern-
ment in the early' 1990s.
The charter proposal didn't
pass when it went before voters
in November 1994, but Taylor
said he thinks the new charter
initiative may have better luck.
Taylor said he think the
group behind the current char-
ter proposal has learned from
the shortcomings of the earlier
He said one of the mistakes
his committee made was not
informing the public early in
the process of drafting the
charter, which generated a lot
Taylor also said he thinks the
county is more ready for
change than it was 12 years
Another problem with the
previous charter proposal was a
lack of support from the coun-
ty's constitutional officers -
the sheriff, the clerk of the
court, the tax collector, the
property appraiser and the
supervisor of elections.
The previous charter propos-
al took away some of the finan-
cial powers from the clerk of
the court and changed other
responsibilities of the officers.
But Cameron said the new
proposal leaves the constitu-
tional offices "exactly as they
"1I can't see how it [the char-
ter] would do anything but
improve their situation,"

The St. Johns Board of
County Commissioners adopt-
ed a resolution Tuesday to sup-

the Shands Bridge for the new,
St. Johns River bridge.
Of four proposed routes for
the'bridge named the pur-
ple, black, brown and pink cor-
ridors the pink route falls

From Clay County, the route
would start at the intersection
of Branan Field-Chaffee Road
and Blanding Boulevard and
would head in a southeasterly
direction toward State Road 16
and the Shands Bridge.
The route would join 16 at
the west end of the Shands
Bridge and would follow the
existing alignment of the
bridge until entering St. Johns
Then the route would take a
northeastern, turn and finally
intersect with 1-95 about 3.5

Recently you may have seen
my name in the media as an
advocate for soccer fields at the
beach. Just last weekend the
group of girls known as
Cyclone Soccer entered and
played in the State cup tourna-
ment in Sanford, Florida.
No, they didn't win, howev-
er this group of 19 girls ages 12
thru 16 played 3 games in 23
hours and were very competi-
tive. Despite going to the tour-
nament minus 3 starters and
lack of quality practice fields
Soccer is one of the top
sports, at the Beach yet quality
fields are only given lip service.
To those parents, coaches and
sponsors, thank you for your
support and belief in the
Principles of Cyclone Soccer.
To the girls, you are truly a
class group. Opposing coaches
could not believe that we
weren't a club team. The refer-
ees commented to the coaches
that we were the best represen-
'tatives to come out of north
Florida in a long time.
To those ,who for whatever
reason chose to say one thing
and door not do anything to,
assist with quality fields; I ask
only that you remember that

In response to Mayor
Wolfson's recent letter, it is
not surprising that he and
certain members of the Atlantic
Beach city commission are try-
ing to minimize the political
fallout on what has so far been
proposed and/or discussed
regarding changes to the city's
building code. However, what
remains at the center of this
controversy are the commis-
sion's actions to date.
In spite of what side one
might take in this' ongoing
"McMansion" debate, the com-
mission arbitrarily denied a
property owner's request to sub-
divide a lot, even though the
city's attorney and the planning
and zoning director both said
they had no basis for this
action. It took a 'lawsuit
brought by the property owner
to get the city to grant the
owner what they were legally
entitled to in the first place,
after the city spent over $20,000
in taxpayer dollars to hire an
outside attorney who also
advised them they were wrong,
and would lose in court. In
response, the commission has
now put a moratorium on any
lot divisions for an unspecified
period of time.
The city has recently drafted
legislation proposing the forma-
tion of a Large Lot, Single
Family district in Atlantic Beach
that, if passed, would virtually
preclude any subdivision of lots
going forward. It is yet to be
determined; but this proposed'
legislation could cost certain
Atlantic Beach property owners
$10 million to $15 million in
lost property value.
The city has drafted proposed
legislation (Ordinance 90-06,
amending Section 24-172 of the
city code) which, as Mayor
Wolfson recently wrote, has yet
to be adopted. However, this
legislation establishes a more
stringent level of restrictions for
new home construction and
remodeling. Ironically the first
two pages of .the ordinance
would lead the reader to believe
that its purpose is to promote
health, peace and safety in our
community and that it is not
meant to infringe on property
rights or "restrain individual
preferences in residential archi-
tecture." But the next 12 pages
do exactly that. In my opinion
the way this is being presented,
saving one thing and doing the
opposite, is a little disingenu-
The current commission now
commonly defends its actions
by proclaiming that nothing
has been decided regarding
these new regulations, and that
all this is just a continuation of'
a "community character study,"
started several years ago by the
previous commission. In addi-
tion to the $58,000 paid in
2005, the current commission,
recently authorized another
$53,000 of taxpayer dollars to
be paid to the Colorado land
planning frm to further study.
and formulate these guidelines
and regulations. On the front
page of the study it says these
guidelines are "to serve as a
guide to assist property owners,
builders, designers and archi-
tects in interpreting the new
requirements" which are clearly
aimed at Limiting the size of
houses, limiting the, buildable
area jon each lot, 'limiting cer-
tain architectural styles, etc. But
if the commission is saying they
don't intend to adopt many of
these recommended changes to
the building code, why keep
spending considerable tax payer
dollars to have, the land planner
come back and explain them to
Most important in this
process, the city commission
has had discussions as .to
whether any Atlantic Beach res-
ident could rebuild a house just
as it was, if the house were
unfortunately destroyed (hurri-
cane, fire, etc.). Conversely,
would our homes have to be re-
built in compliance with any
newly-passed, more stringent
building guidelines, if and when
'these proposed guidelines are
adopted? This is a pretty sim
ple, straightforward yes or no
question. Can we build our
homes back, just like they are, if
destroyed for whatever reason?
The commission needs to
answer this question sooner
rather than later, irregardless of
what it does with all the other
proposed building code
changes. If we can't build our
homes back just like they were,
wouldn't this in fact dramatical-
ly change the character of
Atlantic Beach going forward?
Finally, at the most recent
meeting, the commission
passed a first reading of an ordi-
nance to designate swimming
pools as a 40 percent impervi-
ous surface, instead of the for-
mer 100 percent pervious desig-
nation. The St. Johns River
Water Mgt. District considers.
pools as 100 percent pervious
surface. The result is fewer
and/or smaller pools or a small-
er house on your lot. The hard-
est hit will be those homeown-.
ers with smaller lots.
The magnitude of all these
new legislative proposals has
recently caught the attention of
a large number of Atlantic
Beach property owners, particu-
larly as they learn more and
more about what is being dis-
cussed, and, how it could impact
them. Through grass roots pub-.
lic awareness, a group of citizens
has now come forward ques-
tioning the wisdom of these
proposed building code revi-
sions. And some homeowners
are getting a little nervous as to
where this is all heading.
Yes the citizens have been
allowed to provide some level of.
input at public meetings, but it
is still unclear whether anyone
is really. listening. However,
now that citizen awareness and'
interest has grown exponential-
ly, there will be more scrutiny
from the Atlantic Beach citizens.

The Wal-Mart setback issue is
just one more example of town
government lack of, foresight
when. implementing zoning
and 'land use; changes to
"enhance character" or other
politically correct trends of the
times. Now, Wal-mart, must-
comply with a new. require-
ment in the city's Land
Development Regulations, and
now must seek a variance to
put the building toward the
rear of the property, where past
regulation allowed. This non-
sense 'is occurring due to the
transient nature of city govern-
ment, with various commis-
sioners and mayors, coming
and going, and in the process
implementing their own politi-
cally correct agendas without
regard to long and short term
effects on the community. This
issue must now be debated,
argued, analyzed and paralyzed
by commissioners, on top of
their already busy schedules.
The very same changes are
about to occur in Atlantic Beach,
with the "Community
Character Stud>y" conducted by
the Winter & Company, import-
ing and duplicating planning
studies from other towns such as
Durango, Aspen, Sacramento,
Carmel, and others, and by
involvement workshops to stir
up fear that the "Community
Character" is being replaced by
"McMansions" and other
"undesirable development". The
Community Character Study
addresses Atlantic Beach as a
resort area and does not address
the fact that Atlantic Beach has
evolved into a very popular and
highly desirable upscale suburb
of lacksonsille, based on its
eclectic individualism 'andl'ari-
ety ofa ttRilct. iYal diffrences.-
By implementing restrictive
concepts such as Floor Area
Ratio (primarily a commercial
concept), reducing building cov-
erage to 40 percent of lot size,
forcing garage doors to be less
than 30 percent of the front
facade, creating virtual (imagi-`
nariy floor area deficits, and
severely limiting wall plate'
height and wall lengths, all
described in the "Report on
Potential Changes to the
Standards" dated October 2005
which was removed from the
City of Atlantic Beach website at.
coab.us and now- just reported
under Community Character i,
the amended code will stifle cre-
ative design and individuality
by enforcing a "cookie cutter"
doctrine that will repeatedly be
appealed on a case by case sce-,
nario., requiring a large amount
of time and resources from the
City's administrative employees.
The study uses a premise of a 50
X 130 lot average, but a Duval
County Property Appraisers
Office report indicates that 33
percent of Atlantic Beath's lots
are less than .12 acres, or
approximately 5000O sq ft. This
means that future houses Uill be
significantly smaller than what,
are allowed under the current
code, and the "encouragement"
by the amended code putting
garages in the backward will
eliminate safe playspaces for
children of generations to come.
I suppose we can send them out
into the streets to play.
Before knee-jerk tampering
and rush-job implementation of
amended "copy-cat code" iruin
100 years of local code evolution

ers need to step back and realize
that this started out as a

community, we can gradually
reduce less desirable develop-
ment without a code overhaul
and without trampling on pri-
vate property rights. We can
respectfully allow our. perma-
nent administrative employees,
to do the jobs they were hired to
do, ahd not try to fire them or
micromanage them. Let the
Mayors and Commissioners

allow the unique and eclectic

tinue to evolve and remain one

To the editor
As a resident of Atlantic
Beach, and a business/commer-
cial property owner of Neptune
Beach, I am very .concerned
with large issues that face the
two communities. In Atlantic
Beach, we have a heated debate
over concerns for how, if at all,
to control development of resi-
dential properties. In Neptune
Beach, the modern-day jugger-
naut Wal-Mart is eying a long
dormant commercial property
for its own development. These
issues seem unrelated but both
evoke a similar, and self-serving,
response from many of our citi-
When. 'important matters
such as these are measured by
how they directly impact our
individual pocket books, we are
failing in our jobs as citizens,
neighbors, parents and public
officials \'hen we look only to

from unlimited personal proper-
ry rights iSave Atlantic Beach's

ignoring the long term needs of
'our cities and the quality of life
that attracted us here in the first
place. We didn't move here to
maximize our property values,
or because there was a substan-
tial tax base. We chose our love-
ly beach communities for the
quality of life each affords us.
.-Arguing for unlimited tax rev-
enue in Neptune Beach, is irre-
sponsible. I applaud
Councilman Weldon's strong
opposition to the prospect of a
development by Wal-Mart.
Make no mistake: Neptune
Beach and Atlantic Blvd will
never be the same once this
, giant moves into town. We
don't need more tax base nearly
as much as we need to retain the
character and ambience of
Arguing for unlimited proper-
ty rights in Atlantic Beach is
similarly short-sighted and just
plain greedy. Our current code
clearly, needs some work so the
rights of neighbors are also a
consideration in residential
design and development. A
claim that some restiictions on
the allowable scale of construc-
tion will reduce resale values of
our properties points to the
wrong goal. Are we really living
in Atlantic Beach and building
our houses to further increase
the already inflated resale values
of our properties? Are we here
just so we can. cash out our
homes for personal gain? We
should be more interested in
protecting the character of our
overall community. In some
cases community rights must

Fold the foil over the top
and gather the two ends; but
leave two sides open so the
grill gasses can pass through.
The liquid in the bottom of
the pan will boil and the
"marinade steam" will con-
dense inside the top of the.
foil and drip back over the
bird, self-basting it.
Add wet hickory or sage
chips to the fire. Use either a
flat metal can that tuna
comes in and set it on the
lava rocks under the grill; or
use commercially available
iron containers which are set
on the grid next to the lava
rocks. Big chunks of hickory
Start the grill and when it
heats up, place the pan on
one side of the grill. Cook
over a hot fire. For two
burner grills, place the pan..
on one side and turn the
pan end for end after 25
minutes. Turn the burner
under the bird to low after 1
hour. Make sure that the
sides of the foil are open.
Allow the chicken to cook
two to two and a half hours,
depending on the size of. the'
bird. Make sure at least a
quarter inch of liquid is in
the bottom of the foil inside
the pan. Add water if it gets
dry. When the chicken is
done (test with a thermome-
ter or insert a knife which
should slide in almost by
itself) take the bird off the.
fire. Cover and let sit for 15
Use a very sharp knife to'
carve the bird into large,
thin slices. Spoon the juice
from the bottom of the pan'
and pour over each slice on
the platter. The juice may
also be used for flavoring for
gravy as rice and gravy are:
almost a must with this
meal. Serve immediately. '
To make turkey: soak it
in brine made with 4 lb. of
rock salt, water, and 1 bottle
of honey. Soak for three
hours; remove and rinse.
Apply spices, etc. as above.

rose to the occasion. Flashy for-

Camilo Villegas shot a final
round 71 to land in a tie for
third with Pat Perez, lim Furyk,
and Henrik Stenson. \illegas,
who began the week listed as
first alternate for the Players,
gained entry into the tourna-
ment when former Gator Chris
DeN Marco withdrew because of a
rib injury suffered while skiing.
The third place showing was
somewhat bittersweet for the
Columbian, however, because it
moved him up to No. 11 on the
money list, one slot shy of earn-
ing a spot in the Masters.
"I gave it my best and it looks
like it's not going to happen,"
said Villegas, masking his disap-
pointment. "Hopetully, there
will be plenty of Masters for me
in the future."

For a while it seemed the Waterford
Crystal might stay in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Area residents Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk
and 2005 champion Fred Funk were all in
the hunt as play began Sunday in the final
round of The Players Championship.
Singh, at 8-under, was just one shot
behind third round leader Stephen Ames.
Furyk, who led The Players after the first
and second rounds, had a bogey-plagued
75 on Saturday but was still just four
strokes off the lead. And Funk, at 3-under,
was still lurking on the leaderboard as play
A disastrous front nine knocked Singh
from contention quickly. Three bogeys on
his fist five holes and double bogey on the
9th dropped the Fijian to 1-under. A pair
of birdies on the back nine was offset by
two bogeys and Singh finished 5-over for
Ponte Vedra Beach's Jim Furyk chips
toward the 18th green during the
opening round of The Players
Championship last Thursday. Furyk led
the event for the first two rounds but
finished in a four-way tie for third.
Furvk, meanwhile, rebounded to shoot
an even par 72 in the final round to finish
in a four-way tie for third. The 35-year-old
was pleased with his round and happy
things didn't spiral completely out of con-
trol Saturday, as they did in the second
round for playing partner Davis Love Ill.
Love and Furyk both had terrific open-
ing rounds Thursday amidst dreary, wet
conditions. Playing in the same group,
each carded a "-under 65 to share the lead.
On Friday, however, while Furyk main-
tained his steady pace and even stretched
his lead by a stroke to 8-under, Love was a
truly dreadful 17 shots worse than the pre-
-ious day. Love's round of 83 dropped him
99 places in the standings and the Georgia
native missed the cut.
A similar fate befell 2004 Players cham-
pion Adam Scott. The 25-year-old
Australian, who had climbed to within
one stroke of the lead at 7-under on Friday,
shot a woeful 82 in the third round to
plummet down the leaderboard..
On Saturday, it was Furvk who found
trouble all over the Stadium Course but
managed to avoid a Love-like implosion
with some nifty par saves and a stellar
"This golf course can be severe," the
Ponte Vedra resident said. "The greens
were playing as difficult as I've ever seen
them and the weather wasn't even that
bad. I think there were times in my round
Saturday that I could really have put up a
big number, but I didn't and managed to
keep it together even though I wasn't play-
Like many before him Sunday, Funk
found the Stadium Course exceptionally
difficult to navigate. Five bogeys led to a 2-
over par 74 and a tie for 16th place. Still,
given the distractions, commitments and
media attention that goes with being the
defending Players champion, Funk's four
days weren't all that bad.
After handing the crystal trophy to this
year's champion Stephen Ames during a
greenside ceremony at the 18th, Funk said
the course took its toll on most of the

"They were really good, they
were really quick," she said of
the two attackers. "The way

And the way they passed. It was
really hard to keep up with
them and stay goalside and
watch the ball with them."
Fehling continued to see the
difference between northern

"You can definitely tell they
