Teachers prepare for summer vacation

Among those who plan to
travel this summer are two
longtime Ponte Vedra teachers
who are retiring: Rawlings
third-grade teacher Jane
Skelton and Landrum eighth-
grade language arts teacher
Skelton is calling it a career
after 24 years in St. Johns
County schools, 11 of them at
Ponte Vedra-Palm Valley and
, 13 of them at Rawlings. She
said she plans to spend time
with her grandson, Tyler
"He's 3 and the apple of my
eye," she said.
Plans include taking a trip
to Sanibel, Fla., in June with
her husband John, a retired
Army lieutenant colonel.
"He has something planned
for our anniversary [July 17),
but it's a secret," said Shelton.
But retirement will riot keep
her out of the school, said
Skelton, noting that she plans
to return as a volunteer.

The naming of Palm Valley goes down in history and up on marker
by KATHY HARTMAN
A self-described "newcom-
er" to Palm Valley has been
instrumental in the develop-
ment of a new state historical
marker to be unveiled in Palm
Valley next week.
The marker, which had been
discussed by a county histori-.
cal review board as early as
2003, will be unveiled at 11
a.m. Saturday, June 3, on:the
grounds of the Palm Valley
Community Center, 148 Canal
The marker is a standard,
state-sanctioned sign similar to
the one that explains Diego
Plains, the name that preceded,
the name "Palm Valley."
That marker stands in front
of Landrum Middle School on
The text on the Palm V'alley
marker "primarily revolves
around the name 'Palm Valley'
and why that name was cho-
sen," Greg Leonard, president
of the Palm Valley Community'
Association, said Tuesday.
"This historical marker is
really not about politics. It's
about history," he said.

Although the Palm Valley
Community Association con-

After much heated discus-

2004 OK'd the placement of,
four signs along roadways in
the Ponte Vedra area. The
wooden signs welcome drivers

said having the charter on the 2008
ballot would be ideal because of
better voter turnout.
Despite the two years yet to
come before such a vote; McGough
said she and the group strive to
keep the charter initiative in the
McGough said this task should-
n't be too difficult, because com-
missioners continue to approve
projects despite public outcry.
Frustration over what some per-
ceived as the County Commission's
acting in opposition to the public's
wishes prompted the Coalition to
study the notion of a charter.
One early example was the coun-
ty's purchase of St. Johns Service
Co., and a' recent example is the
commissioners' approval of a water
bottling plant in the northwest
part of the county. .
If approved as proposed, the
charter would place restrictions on
the use of property acquired
through eminent domain and
would require that campaign
reports be filed electronically.
Supervisor of Elections Penny
Halyburton, one of the constitu-
tional officers who have been given
copies of the charter draft, said
electronic filing would "absolutely"
make her job easier.
"Every candidate should
absolutely love it," she said,
because they can file their contri-
butions from their home computer
on a daily basis and then print out
a copy of the report to file with the
supervisor of elections office.
Although electronic filing is cur-
rently available to candidates in St.
SJohns County, it is not required,
Candidates who do not file elec-
tronically must keep track of their
contributions and fill out paper
reports which election officials
must scan into an Internet data-
base, she said.
The reports appear on the super-
visor of election's Web site as
images, which prevents users from
sorting and analyzing them,
Now that the charter has been
drafted, McGough said the next
step is to refine the document
based on feedback provided by citi-
zens and county officials. Then the
group will try to get it on the bal-

have lacked a central spot for community gather-
ings of any import or size. City fathers promised
a replacement when the pavilion was destroyed.
It has taken longer than expected but plans are
proceeding to build a community center at a
south Jacksonville Beach park. Last week the city
agreed to spend the money needed "to determine
the scope of the community center project."
The expenditure should allow the city to make
good on its promise to residents. A well-designed
community center also promises to provide a
much needed gathering spot for community pro-
A place where residents can come together and
use the facilities for mutually beneficial civic pur-
poses is an investment in the community.

.recently stumbled into our
garage to urinate who was so
drunk that when she dropped
her drawers and squatted she

All property should be protected
To the editor:
As a resident of Atlantic
Beach, I have, been following
the recent developments
regarding the Winter Report
I am frustrated with the
assertions that all supporters
of Save Atlantic Beach are
only focused on property val-
ues, maximum building, and
using their homes as a "401k".
I have been a resident of
Atlantic Beach for over 10
years. I currently live in an
older home on a nice sized.
lot. I have no desire to build a
"McMansion" on my proper-
ty. I am not excited about the
possibility of my neighbors
building such structures.
However, I feel very strongly
that it is not the city's right to
dictate to me what I can build
on the property that I have
worked so hard for. This is my
I also feel that it is not the
city's right, or mine to dictate
to my neighbors what they
can build on their lots. After
attending several of the Save
Atlantic Beach meetings, city
commission meetings, the
recent town hall meeting and
reading the ordinance, I can
say that I am against this ordi-
nance and think our city'lead-
ers need to begin again. This
is also the position that Save
Atlantic Beach stated in the
town hall meeting. Everyone
wants our community to
remain unique, but accusing
those who refuse to accept
this ridiculously stringent
ordinance of only wanting to
use their homes as a bank
account is unjust.
I am also alarmed at the tac-
tics that the city commission-
ers and the mayor have taken
trying to minimize support
for Save Atlantic Beach by
declaring that the only people
who should be concerned,
heard, and considered are
those who live in old Atlantic
Beach. I attended the town
meeting when the "change"
in the ordinance so that it
only includes old Atlantic
Beach was announced. I only
hope that I am in attendance
when- the "change" putting
my property back in the
included boundaries occurs.
My interest is in the city as an
entirety, not just qIy home or
my street. Our community
focus should be to work
together, not to divide and

In search of 'Hot Scots'
win contest, visit
castle in Scotland
to meet men
There are more than half a million,
single young-men in Scotland, and
27-year-old Lauren Spencer, a
Jacksonville Beach resident, is going
to meet the 20 hottest in their natural
Spencer, 27, who won a three-day
trip to Scotland this week with her
identical twin sister, expects to meet
some of Scotland's most eligible bach-
She was one of more than 20,000
women who voted for a favorite Hot
Scot on www.dateahotscot.com,, a
promotional campaign website for
VisitScotland, the official arm of the
Scottish Tourist Board. During the
campaign, which ran from
Valentine's Day through March 31,
visitors were introduced to sexy
Scottsmen via photographs, personal
profiles and video interviews and
allowed to choose their favorite kilt-
clad hunk- thus entering themselves
in a sweepstakes to win a trip, along
with a lucky lady friend, to visit the
Hot Scots on their native soil. The
contest was open only to women.
One winner was drawn at random
from each of the six eligible countries:
USA, France, Germany, Netherlands,
Sweden and Spain.
Lauren Spencer, who received the
link in an e-mail from her sister,,
Kristen, thought the website was
cheeky and funny and happily cast
The e-mail link was also sent to a
coworker of Lauren's. The coworker
won the trip and quickly asked
Lauren to accompany her before
realizing the dates of the trip conflict-
ed with the coworker's honeymoon.
Contest organizers agreed to Lauren
coming in her stead and she said it
was pretty easy to decide to ask her
sister along, since she had originally
alerted all to the contest. Doing-
things together is nothing new, as the
Spencer sisters, who attended Fletcher
High School and Florida State
Lauren Spencer, left% and her identical twin sister Kristen will meet with
Scotland's most eligible bachelors this week as part of a prize package won
University together, are also room,
"We're roommates so I really could-
n't go without her noticing," said
Lauren, who works for an advertising
and public relations firm. Kristen
works at Neptune Beach Baptist
The Spencers, representing the
United States, will join with repiesen-
tatives from the other countries for a
variety of activities, including recep-
tions, including one with the men
wearing kilts, Lauren said, acknowl-
edging the age-old undergarments
question and noting "I'll report back."
The four-day/ three-night trip will
-take the twins to Edinburgh, where
they can explore historical land-
marks, museums, and the under-
ground streets of Mary King's Close -
said to be the most haunted place in
Edinburgh -- and Glasgow, the largest
shopping centre in the UK outside of
London. Also included, a welcome
and farewell party during which the
ladies will get to meet all of their
favorite Hot Scots.
"I'm hoping I can get through this
trip without causing an international
incident," said Lauren. "Scottish
accents are an auditory version of
beer goggles, and these guys are
already dangerously good looking
with their mouths shut. It would cer-
tainly put a damper on the trip to be
drummed' up on kidnapping charges
for trying to sneak one home."
Although voting has ended and the
winners have been chosen from
www.DateaHotScotcom, which was
part of www.ToScotland.com.
Lauren cast her vote for Stuart
Duncan, a marketing and operations
* controller for XFM Scotland Radio
Station' with a slight Star Wars fixa-
tion. He came in 7th place with 1,458
votes, ahead of the reserved skipper
for the 2006 Olympic Curling team
and behind a water buffalo farmer.
Craig Irving, a 27-year-old business
development manager,, took top hon-
ors with 3,325 votes.

Johnson can t say
no to alma mater
by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
D"orothy Johnson is a pushover
when it comes to volunteering.
"I'm one of those people who can't say
no," Johnson, an 85-year-old Neptune
Beach resident, said..
"I'm trying to slow down, but they
won't let me."
They, meaning the University of North
Florida's Alumni Association.
They might also include the Beaches
Area Historical Society and the Friends of
the Beaches Library.
Johnson is a past board member of the
latter two organizations, tallying a dozen,
years on each. She's also a 30-year board
member of UNF's Alumni Association
who has attended nearly every important
event at the school, including 21
"I love my university," said Johnson,
who earned her first college degree from
UNF at age 54 and her second at age 62.
Army officer's wife
Johnson was a freshman at Agnes Scott
College in Decatur, Ga., when she met
Georgia Tech student Daniel Johnson.
She married young and never finished
college, raising seven children as the wife
of an Army artillery officer.
When her husband, a retired colonel,
suffered a stroke in the early 1970s,
Johnson's role as.a homemaker expanded
to include breadwinner.
"When you have children depending
on you and you know your husband is
dying, it's very frightening," Johnson
"I knew I had to do something."
So the mother of seven went back to
school using her husband's G.I. benefits,
graduating in 1974 from UNF with a
bachelor's degree in English literature.
A month after she received her diplo-
ma, her husband of 34 years died at age
"He wasn't able to attend my gradua-
tion," recalled Johnson, who still lives in
the same house she and her husband
purchased in Neptune Beach in 1970.
After her :husband's funeral at
Arlington National Cemetery, Johnson'
found work teaching English as a second
language at Florida Community College
Her pay increased by $1 an hour when
she received her master's degree in allied
heath from UNF.
Osprey Club booster
Johrison taught junior 'college classes
for almost seven years until her children
She began volunteering with UNF's
Alumni Association in 1976 and has
been an active booster of the school's
"athletic program for the past 22 years.
"I love the students, the envoys partic-
ularly," said Johnson, who lived in Japan
and England while her husband was sta-
"I'm a big booster of UNF athletics
because you can't get into UNF as an ath-
lete. unless you have a high grade-point
average. The graduation percentage
among athletes is higher than the stu-
dent body average."
Two of Johnson's daughters graduated
from UNF with master's degrees. Her son,
Daniel, who earned a, law degree from
Emory University in Atlanta, has been
the U.S. Ambassador to Suriname for the
past six years.
"Between them, my children have
about 15 degrees," said Johnson, who
has nine grandchildren and four great-
"When I make up my Christmas list, I
have 29 people, not counting in-laws.'
Johnson doesn't forget UNF at gift-giv-
ing time, either.
Over the past 30 years, she has made.

And the school hasn't forgotten her
gifts nor her time and dedication.
In February, the UNF Alumni
Association established the. inaugural
Dorothy G. Johnson Medallion for out-
The award isn't Johnson's only lasting
achievement at UNF.
Three years ago, she helped establish
an endowed scholarship in the College of
Education and Human Services.
The, Dorothy G. Johnson Family and
Friends endowment recently awarded its
first scholarship to a U.S. Marine major-
ing in education at UNF.
Johnson said the endowment is up to
$19,000 and as soon as it reaches
$25,000, the state will match it.
When she's not attending quarterly
meetings of the Alumni 'Association,
Johnson finds ways to help out other
organizations such as\attending meetings
of the Friends of the Library or volun-

A back page ad in a UNF magazine
recently caught her attention.
The ad said that if 1,000 people visit a
UNF graduate's Web site, the graduate,
Kurtis Loftis of Jaqksonville Beach, will

Museum & History Center.

The later salad is a combi-
nation of vegetables in a
sweet vinegar dressing.
Along with the salads,
Brazeau serves deviled eggs
and other sides. She enlists
the help of one of the men to
grill hot dogs, hamburgers, or
chicken legs for the children.
Having previously lived in
Annapolis, Md., Brazeau likes
to include a couple seafood
dishes for dinner.
She uses 6 pounds of fish,
shrimp, and crabmeat to
make a large pot of Seafood
Gumbo. The gumbo can be
made with the traditional
seafoods, and with whatever
is fresh and available.
She also makes her own
recipe for "She Crab Soup," a
Maryland delicacy, serving it
in a crock pot so everyone
can help themselves.
Brazeau first tasted "She
Crab Suup" at a restaurant on
Kent Island just over the
Chesapeake Bay Bridge near
After experimenting several
times, Brazeau says she is
pleased with her own version
.of the creamy, rich soup.
For dessert Brazeau serves
Death by Chocolate Cake
along with ice cream.
"Everyone is usually so full
from dinner that all we need
is a really a little taste of.
something sweet," she said.
The following are recipes that

Panthers football potent in spring debut
By CHUCK ADAMS
Rising junior Ted Stachitas,
dubbed by head coach Craig
Howard "Excite us Stachitas,"
completed his first 10 passes en
route to a 49-0 trouncing of
DeLand last Thursday night.
For his evening at Spec Martin
Memorial Stadium, Stachitas
connected on 13-of-16 passes,
good for 188 yards, and rushed
for 51 more. He ran for two TDs
and threw for three.
Last year, Stachitas was 17-for-
20 passing for 269 yards, and
ran for 55 more, as Nease edged
DeLand 39-33 when the
Bulldogs came north for the
Panthers' spring game.
At 5:42 of the first quarter,
Stachitas ran right for the
game's first TD. He then swept
left at 4:44 for a six-pointer set
up by Al Della Porta's recovery
of a DeLand fumble at the
Bulldogs' 25 and return to the
Zack Cooper, last year's
punter working this spring as
the Panthers' placekicker, added
both extra points.
Zach Tronti scored with two
minutes left in the first quarter
to lift the margin to 20-0.
Stachitas connected with
Ryan Lawson from five yards
out at 9:04 of the second period
to make the score, with the
extra point, 28-0, then hit
Quinton Huggins in the end
zone for a 12-yard TD at 4:35.
Linebacker Jared McNauaght
returned a recovered fumble
from the 24-yard line 22 sec-
onds later to complete first-half
At 8:45 of the third quarter,
Stachitas hit Collins Lee, who
transferred to Nease from
Providence last year, with a 15-

By nearly any measure, the
ninth annual Highsmith Mem-
orial Tournament, played in
Jacksonville Beach over the week-
end, was a tremendous success.
The event brought together,.
those who played with and'
against Mike Highsmith, the
beach volleyball legend who died
in a dirt bike accident in
Colorado in 1997, as well as oth-
ers who considered him a friend
and many who knew him only
A total of 39 teams, including
some in the Legends divisions,
played Saturday on the 10 per-
manent courts adjacent to the
.ackson\ille Beach pier.
"It's going good," tournament
director Jay Miller said of this
year's Jacksonville Beach
Volleyball, now two events old.
"Things are improving as we go,
and we have a lot of big changes
coming on. The July tournament
is going to be filmed for Comcast.
"[It's] a lot of work, but I think
it's going to be worth it," said
Miller, who has run tournaments
for 20 years and has brought
Engle Homes, KISS FM and DX
Next year will mark the 10th
annual Highsmith Memorial and
family members of the late vol-
leyball icon plan to host a party
for those who knew Mike.
"It's just unbelievable these
guys still want to get together just
to honor their buddy," said
Highsmith's mother, Francine
Susie Mashour, who, with sister
Terri finished runner-up in
Women's AA, started playing
beach volleyball just last summer.
She never knew Highsmith, but
certainly knows about him.
"He's a legend, was a great vol-

appreciates him," said Mashour.
"That's why this is dedicated to

"It's good to come out here,"
said Terry Knight, runner-up in
Legends with Paul Bathen,
"because a lot of the guys who
don't play anymore, they're back
and playing. And a lot of these
guys are still good. Some of them
were A\T level at that point.
Rocky [Morsch] and Damon
[Gordon], they're good players.
"It's fun. They trash talk.
People come from out of town.
So it's different than other tour-
naments," added Knight.
Jim "Kooky" Carson, now liv-
ing in Chicago, where he's per-
forming at Second City and
Improve, also was one of the
Legends. He recalled playing his
first game of doubles with High-
"If he taught me one value, it
was set the ball to our team, not
the other team. And we started
winning games from that point,"
said Carson, who had been play-
ing volleyball for about two
months at that time. "If there was
one person who would teach you
the game, it was Mike."
Highsmith and Matt Tracy,
who coaches girls soccer at Bolles,
knew one another for seven
"He and Wayne [MacDonald]
were the first people I played
against from Jacksonville, when I
lived in Daytona," said Tracy.
"They treated me so well, told me
what to do when I got up here,
who to meet, where to go. So we
became friends real quickly."
Jill Cox of Jacksonville Beach
knew Highsmith as a friend.
Normally a women's open player,
Cox played in the Legends divi-
sion since her partner, Robin
Mignerey, wasn't at the tourna-
"It's not a coincidence that this
tournament is such a beautiful
weather-wise day," she said.
"Somebody's looking down on us
and smiling and laughing and
contacting help, if we need it. It's
definitely him here with us."
Cox worked with Highsmith
when he was tending bar.
"Mike was beautiful in so
many ways, inside and out. He
always was smiling. He could

Shocking injury to Barbaro among
saddest sports incidents in a while
T e story of the week hap-
pened last Saturday and it
1. had nothing to do with a
home run record. The shocking
injury to undefeated thorough-
bred Barbaro at the start of the
,Preakness rates with the saddest
sports incidents in a long time.
The Kentucky Derby winner
looked as close to a potential
Triple Crown winner as any
seen in a while. The big bay colt
was so anxious to get out and
run he actually broke the gate
on the eve of the start and had
to be reined'in by jockey Edgar
It looked like nothing could
stop. Barbaro and nothing did
until after a few yards, his right
rear leg suddenly went lame.
-Even then the game crippled
horse kept trying to run on
The record Pimlico crowd of
118,402 sat and stood numb
with disbelief. Barbaro's mount
was quick to jump off and bring
his .horse finally to a stop after
guiding him to a slowing halt.
Almost lost in the horror of it
was the rest of the, race, which
saw Bernardini out run his near-
est rival, Sweetnorthernsaint by
five and a half lengths,
Hemingway's Key finishing
Under ordinary circum-
stances, the race finished more
exciting than the closeness of
the first and second horse
would show. It was one of the
most bizarre finishes in
Pimlico's 130 years of great.
An odds-on favorite, Barbaro
was thought to be the best
chance. of winning the Triple
Crown, which has eluded rac-
ing since Lou Wolfson's Affirm-
ed turned the trick in 1978.
Barbaro, who went off at almost
even odds, had won the
Kentucky t)erby by six lengths,
which had a lot to do with the
smaller field at Pimlico.
This was a race that had plen-
ty of side interests. If Barbaro
won in Maryland he would be
No. 1 favorite for the Belmont
Stakes in three weeks.
No less than New York'
Yankees owner George
Steinbrenner had an entry in
this one and while skeptics fig-
ured that was just a showoff, it
turned out to be a real "show"
since King George's Heming-
way's Key finished third.
Who knows what effect
Barbaro's loss had on the other
The injury ended Barbaro's
career and. maybe his life,
which is the saddest thing of
Losing a thoroughbred for
racing is bad, enough, losing
him for stud is even worse, for
that means the money will not
be coming in.
The sight of Barbaro hobbling
on one leg on the track was
heart-breaking. We've seen
football players hauled off the
field with apparent serious
injuries, baseball players as well,
and basketball players who
have hit the floor head first that
chills the blood.
But a horse, limited in knowl-
edge of what has happened to
him, is even worse.
The hope is that doctors can
save Barbaro; he seemed to sur-
vive his surgery but only time
It took a lot away from win-
ner Bernardini, a stained victor
in only his fourth race.
Covering the races sometimes
makes you feel good. A horse
never says he won't talk to the
media or calls you a racist.
That's why they're superior to
the two legged variety of big
Meanwhile, back at the zoo,
three players, including the
Jaguars' recently drafted runner
Maurice Drew, are charged with
assault in the beating of a man
at a restaurant allegedly because
he was using a laptop computer.
They must have thought he was
Strike one on Maurice Drew, a
lad we were beginning to like.
He says he didn't do anything.
If that's so, then strike two. He's
supposed to be fast, but he did-
n't get away.
Before the college-pro draft.
Coach Jack Del Rio and Coach
James Harris told the media
they were going to look for
character. Obviously they
found one in Maurice, Drew.
This was the week for shocks.
Jacksonville's old favorite JU
Dolphin star, Artis Gilmore, was
arrested and charged with DUI
after wrecking his car off the
road. Luckily he wasn't killed.
Shame, Artis (an old friend).
