Bottling plant fears
to get public airing
by LAURA FOWLER
Representatives of a com-
pany given the go-ahead to
build a water-bottling plant
in north St. Johns County
have agreed to hold several
public meetings after resi-
dents and county commis-
sioners questioned the
plant's potential impact.
St. Johns County commis-
sioners and residents alike
expressed concerns Tuesday
about the number of high-
paying jobs the plant would
bring and about the 1 mil-
lion gallons of water the
plant would draw from
underground supplies each
"What we know mostly
about water as commission-
ers is it's wet,"
Commissioner Ben Rich said
jokingly during Tuesday's
County Commission meet-
Rich said commissioners
must base their decisions on
the opinions of "experts,"
who have given mixed sig-
nals about the impact of the
plant's potential consump-
tion of water.
Some experts within the
county have told commis-
sioners the county has plen-
ty of water.
But officials of the St.
Johns River Water
Management District have
encouraged the county to
seek alternative water sup-
plies, such as brackish water.
After commissioners heard
that recommendation, they
made plans for an osmosis
water treatment plant,
which was-scheduled to
break ground last month.
When fresh water supplies
near the ground's surface
run low, water must be
obtained .from brackish sup-
plies deeper underground,
which cost more to treat for
Ken Bryan, a St. Augustine
resident who is running for
the District 2 seat on the
board, said Tuesday that the
question is not how much
water there is, but how
much the county is willing
to pay for it.
Also eliciting comment
Tuesday were the approxi-
mately 250 jobs expected to
be generated by the plant's
Rich said he worries that
most of the workers will be
making less than the
$35,000 yearly average esti-
mated by the bottling com-
pany, Le-Nature's Inc.
But John Podlucky, a rep-
resentative of Le-Nature's,
said the equipment will be
"state of the. art," so many
of the jobs will require tech-
nical skill and few will be
for manual workers.

New Landrum pavilion
offers 'cool' outside spot

up, it may offer a welcome
"It looks pretty cool," sLxth

Thursday under the tent-like
structure that is about 12 feet
high and covers an area 30 feet
by 70 feet.
"Pretty cool," assistant prin-
cipal Allyson Breger echoed the
same day, the fourth day the
tent was up. "Feels like our
own little metropolitan park.
"If it's sunny, then people
might come out here more
often because the pavilion's

she waited for the school bus

The Landrum teachers also
helped out, donating a portion
of the money awarded by the
state for the school's A rating
from last year's FCATs.
"It's been something that the
PTO has been wanting to pro-
vide for the school," said
"[The tent will] offer some
shade during the hot months,
as well as some coverage if
there's just a light rain so that
the kids can still eat outside,"
Although the spring has
been sunny and mostly in the
70s, warmer days are ahead, if
last year's temperatures are any
The average high for the
Jacksonville area in April 2005

warmed to an average of 82.4

With students headed back
to school Aug. 4, the pavilion
may be even more in demand:
last year, August's average high
"This really started with
brainstorming over the sum-
mer between me and the
school's administration, said
Tammy Lemaster, president of
the Landrum PTO. "We just
settled iri on a pavilion."
She said the teachers con-
tributed $8,500 from the
school's A-rate money, with
the remaining coming from
the PTO. '.
Lemaster said similar struc-
tures are already in use at Davis
Park west of Ponte Vedra and at
Switzerland Point Middle
School in Northwest St. Johns
The tent could provide shel-
ter for those waiting for the bus

"Plus the PTO has nighttime
activities that can be held out-

The structure had to be OK'd

lunchtime for the kids is very
important," said teacher

that supported the project. Van

privilege of eating outside by

behavior and good grades.

The Leader's Opinion
by districts is
In November St Johns County voters will get a chance
to improve their representation on the county commis-
sion and hopefully the responsiveness of county govern-
ment as well. The change from a five member county
commission, all members elected at large, to a seven
member board made up of five members elected by dis-
trict vote and two at large is a positive step.
Porte Vedra residents, in particular, should line up
behind the -idea of a commissioner from their own dis-
trict. The community has been frustrated by a lack of
responsiveness from county officials, mainly on issues of
growth and development, and any change that, gives
more weight to the community and less dictatorial
authority to officials in St Augustine would be a welcome
change. '. .
Commissioner Ben Rich made the proposal to place the
change on the November ballot and his effort was unan-
S:imously approved by fellow commissioners. You .cani
expect the developers to put considerable money into
defeating the proposal. So do not be fooled if an organi-
zation called "St. Johns Citizens for Good Government,"
o or some other high sounding title is formed in opposi-
tion. Find out who is paying the bills. As the saying goes,
follow the money.
In 1994 we opposed the change to all commission
members being elected by county-wide vote. We strongly
support the Rich proposal to change back to a more dem-
ocratically elected commission and urge Ponte V\edra
Voters to vote in favor come November.'

Our new mayor and conmmis-
sioners picked up the mantle
and a study from the prior
administration to look at doing
just that. In Fall 2005, the new
city administration laid out
some interesting ideas like
encouraging front porches by,
,allowing such a one story struc-

I read with interest the letters addressed to the

ular, written by Barbara Taylor, captured my
attention. In it, she made reference to the
list of names on the petition to "Save Atlantic
Beach", and that "quite a few live. on Beach
So? Does the fact that many of the residents on
Beach Avenue signed this petition make a differ-
ence? The residents living on Beach Avenue, both
on and off the,ocean, pay a hefty amount of real
estate taxes in comparison to other areas of
Atlantic Beach. Check the tax rolls and see for
yourself. Our hefty tax revenue goes a long way
to help support our police, fire, schools, and local
governments. Services provided not only to those
living on Beach Avenue, but the rest of the com-
munity as well. Those of us who are fortunate
enough to live on Beach Avenue, not only face
stringent building codes from the City of Atlantic
Beach, but also from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection. I, like therest of the
property owners in Atlantic Beach, have an

property to whomever they want to? And if they

Time to participate in the process
To the editor:
After discussing the signs
planted in some of my neigh-
bors' yards, I was reminded by a
friend that-despite current
appearances--the majority of
citizens in Atlantic Beach voted
for a change in the last election.
Our mayor and .at least one
new commissioner were elected
by a majority of citizens who,
want to find ways to create and
sustain balanced, community-
friendly growth. There was a vis-
ible, palpable groundswell of
support for new and reasonable
building codes that would con-
trol development that is out of
size and character with its sur-
rounding environs. Now that
we are starting to get into the
details of how to achieve that-
we need to hear. and see those

need to have all questions and

many months from coming to
any conclusion on how to
secure an Atlantic Beach that
.considers both our individual
property rights and our commu-
nity's well-being, we need active
participation in the process

so vocal in October about pro-
tecting the character of Atlantic

I am not a member of the
Save Atlantic Beach group but
my wife and I, along with over
750 other concerned citizens,
have signed the petition on
their website www.saveat-
lanticbeach.com after we read
the proposed amendment to
the current Atlantic Beach
Regulations (Section 24-172,
The proposed amendment
begins with statements such as
"The City of Atlantic Beach
further intends to protect the
traditional residential develop-
ment patterns within the
City," and "It is the expressed
intent of the City to protect
and maintain the unique
.neighborhood character of
established and traditional res-
idential areas throughout the
City." It also states "It is not
the intent of these new regula-
tions to restrain individual
preferences in residential
architecture or design, or to
limit or adversely effect indi-
vidual property rights or prop-
erty values. The diversity of
residential variety is recog-
nized as an asset to this com-
munity's unique character." I
don't think anyone can argue
with these statements of
Following these statements,
however, is a proposed ordi-
nance full of unrealistic guide-

Ugles and her husband,

Parker: 'Crossed the bar' March 28
Cont. from A-8
bar pilots, including Parker,
dressed in suits and ties and
standing proudly on a pilot
boat, is displayed at the
Mayport office of the St.
Johns Bar Pilots Association.
Parker was buried at the
Mayport Cemetery, next to
the grave of his son, "Little
Bill," who died at age 2.
Following the burial,
friends and family gathered
at the historic Mayport
Presbyterian Church, where
Parker was an ordained elder.
During Sunday services,
Parker always sat at the rear
of the church in an old-fash-
ioned chair with his back to
The tiny church, which
seats about 60 people, was
the first choice for Parker's
"It's where we would have
had it but there just wasn't
enough room," said Kevin
"Piloting was his life. He
lived and breathed it. I can
still see his white hair flying
in the breeze as he climbed
up the bridge ladder,"
And like the famous
Tennyson poem about death
and rebirth. ("I hope to see
my Pilot face to face when I
have crossed the bar") Kevin
Parker said his father had a
chance to say goodbye to
family and friends a day
before he died.
Wrote Tennyson: "Twilight
and evening bell, and after
that the dark! And may there
be no sadness of farewell,
when I embark."

Nease baseball back to winning ways
By CHUCK ADAMS
The Nease baseball team
continued jts winning ways
over the weekend, defeating'
district rival Pedro Menendez
7-3 Friday, then beating
Nashua South of New
Hampshire 8-1 Saturday.
The two home victories lift-
ed the Panthers' record to 14-1,
the only blemish being a 3-2,
eight-inning loss at Port
Orange Atlantic March 27.
Matt Reifsnider earned his
sixth win in the Menendez
game, Matthew Redding was
the winning pitcher against
Nashua South. Redding,
Nease's starting catcher, is 3-0
on the mound this season.
With the score 3-1 Nease in
the fifth, one run in, two outs
and two Nashua South runners
on base, Panthers second base-
man Blake Sanders made a div-
ing catch of a line drive hit by
his counterpart, Kyle Sariceno,
to end the threat.
"That was an amazing play,"
said Redding. "Got me out of a
"Blake Sanders is one of the
best infielders, I would argue,
in the state of Florida," said
Nease coach Boo Mullins. "He
can play second base anywhere
in the country."
Redding allowed just the one
run and two hits before turn-
ing the mound duties over to
Ryan Chiodo, who threw a 1-2-
3 seventh, including a strike-
out of cleanup hitter Joe
Redding recorded six strike-
outs and issued two walks. He
threw 4-1/3 hitless innings
before giving up a single to
Nashua South's No. 5 hitter,
Andrew Brower. %
The slider was Redding's out
pitch in his last start and first
of the season, March 14 against
Terry Parker. But the fastball
was his bread-and-butter pitch
against Nashua South.
"I only threw four sliders all
night," said Redding. .'I..was..
-throwing strorfg --tonight.-
Coach said I was 90s the whole
The loss to the Panthers was
the third of the weekend for
the New Hampshire team, vis-
iting the Jacksonville area to
get in some spring training.
They lost at Terry Parker 1-0
Friday, then to Trinity
Christian 8-2 earlier Saturday.
Nashua South is New
Hampshire's defending class
6A state champion.
"We did real well tonight, 1
thought, considering," Nashua
South coach B.J. Neverett said
Saturday. "We ran out of pitch-
ing there in the last inning" as
Nease scored four times.
Nashua South's starting
pitcher, Dan Rossignal, who
gave up five runs and seven hits
in his five innings of work,
signed a scholarship in
November to attend the
University of Rhode Island.
"He's the best kid in our
league. I thought he did a fan-
tastic job this early in the year
to go five against these guys,"
said Neverett. "I think the
thing we saw is we're way
behind these guys in live at-
"The boy that pitched for
Nease [Redding], we won't see
anyone like that all year. We
explained that to our kids.
That's why we come down
here, to experience that. This
makes us 4 better team.
- I was-iown here last time
(two years ago) with' Chase
Fontaine and Tim Tebow. I still
see the ball Tebow hit over the
rightfield fence that's still trav-
eling," Neverett joked.
Including a game at Palatka
Tuesday, Nease has seven con-
tests left in its regular season.
That includes a St. Johns River
Athletic Conference champi-
onship game April 18. Nashua
South has yet to start its season.
The games in the Sunshine
State are considered preseason
games for the New Hampshire
school, although the results
count for the Florida schools.
Neverett had been following
Nease on the Internet, knowing
his team would face the
"I know they went all the
way to the final four last year,"
he said. "I'm smart enough to
know that when you make the
final four in this state, you've
got to be awfully good .
These are kids that have dedi-
cated their lives to playing
baseball year-round," Neverett
said of the Nease players. "Our
culture's not that way. That's
- why you don't see so many
northern kids moving on to the
With the weekend victories
behind them, the Panthers were
looking ahead to Tuesday's
matchup at Palatka.
"Palatka's tough," said
Mullins. "They're just like us,
they play hard It's going to
be a battle. That's my home-
town. I want to go down there
and win more than anything.
"They'll be ready to play us.
When I walk in there, it'll get
them up even more. And I know
that coach wants to beat us,
Mullins said he has a deep
pitching staff, with Reifsnider,
Redding and Daniel Jones as his
"We've got some relievers that
probably would be some other
team's No. 1 or No. 2," said
Mullins, who expressed pride in
"We played great tonight. We
played our brand of baseball,
and it was almost a perfect
game. We're 14-1, which is the
best record the school's ever
had. It's the highest ranking in
the state the school's ever had."

"I haven't played for three

"The doctor will give me a

"Oh, I miss it so much," she
said while watching her team-
mates play. "It's hard just being
out here watching, because I
want to go into the matches and
try to play them. But I can't."
"We miss her terribly," said
Nease girls coach Mary Faulds.

Gators earn NCAA respect
with first national crown
By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COL LUMNIST
Win, lose or rained out, the
Florida Gators have to be the
team of the year in the NCAA.
By the same token, Billy
Donovan should be coach of
We could be a little biased,
but they have to salute a team
that came back from the tem-
porarily dead during the regu-
lar season to play like the bad
things never happened and it
knew what it was doing all the
time that was heading for
the national championship
Even with all the attention
George Mason University got
as the Cinderella team of the
year, the Gators just pulled up
their pantaloons and buried
the Patriots, 73-58, rendering
their foes just as dead as their
old namesake, the original
George Mason. Florida beat the
challengers with as sharp a
three-point attack as seen all
season. But they also beat the
Pats on defense. Fact is, if the
first Red Coats had been as
awesome, George Mason and
the Big G iGeorge Washington)
may not have chased the
limeys out of this country.
The Gators probably would
have found a way to win last
Saturday night up in Indy
without Lee Humphrey's six
three-pointers. The George
Masons would have been hard
put to stop Donovan's
Dandies anyway. Joakim
Noah, the titular leader of
these cutthroats, might have
just scared the Patriots into
capitulating. The nation, led
by the media, just fell in love
with George Mason U.

good. This drive to the cham-
pionship reminds some of us

of the way the Jacksonville
University Dolphins almost
made it 36 years ago.
For those too young to
know about it, the JU team led
by towering players Artis
Gilmore and Pembrook
Burrows, who ranged in the 7-
to 8-foot category, and floor-
led by Rex Morgan (Batman
and Robin they were called),
the Dolphins almost pulled
off the miracle of their day in
This wouldn't be a big story
otherwise except that Artis
and Pembrook, along with
diminutive Chipper Dublin,
made history on the Arlington
campus by integrating the
Jacksonville University sports
To say that Artis, who went
on to a fine NBA career, was
awesome is like saying the sky
is high. Size is not as eye-bog-
gling now, but it was then.
Artis was so tall that when he
got a haircut the barber
pumped himself up.
Yep, the miracle burst in the
final with a loss in the cham-
pionship, game, but the
Dolphins, coached by Joe
Williams and Tom Wasdin,
made history. Until that sea-
son, probably half of
Jacksonville didn't even know
where or what JU was. It
caused one of the biggest
excitements the old town had
seeh since the fire of 1901.
One thing that's come out
of all the NCAA coverage this
year is that now the world
knows who or what George
Mason is and was.
Whatever the outcome of
Monday night's game against
UCLA was to be, the Gators
have only increased 'their
glory. Cheers for Coach
Donovan and his gang.
Incidentally, almost lost
between golf and bounce ball,
the Jacksonville Suns open
their Southern League pen-
nant defense this week at the
Ball Grounds. Give them a
visit you'll like it.
