A $1.7 million project to
refresh computers in the St.

their teachers receive new
On May 23, the last day of
school for teachers, Gateway,
the nation's third-largest per-
sonal computer (PC) compa-
ny, announced it had been
awarded a three-year, $1.7-
million lease-to-buy contract
to provide notebook and desk-
top PC products to the St.
fohns County School District.
The project is part of what
Ponte Vedra-Palm Valley prin-
cipal Kathleen Furness called a
"tech refresh" plan, which
puts a new Gateway computer
on the desk of every teacher
and administrator in the dis-
"It's been a wonderful
thing," said Furness. "What it

Furness said the Apple lap-
tops that PV-PV teachers have
been using will be collected
and five will be added to each
second-grade classroom so
that each class has 10 comput-

Furness, who added that a 2-1
computer-student ratio will
better facilitate activities such
as power-point presentations
and "Web-questing," or Web
"The world is at their finger-
tips as learners."
Gateway has supplied more
than 1,500 notebook PCs and
70 desktop PCs to 26 schools
in the district. PV-PV
Elementary has received a
total of 41 computers.
Furness said the switch from
Apple computers to a
Windows platform was made
so teachers and employees
may communicate more easi-
Bruce Patrou, the school
district's chief information
and technology officer said
Gateway was selected because
of their "quality, high-end
products" and their war-
"Our strategy to integrate
technology into the classroom
is taking another step forward
by providing each teacher
with a standard computer that
supports learning software, is
compatible with other district
information systems and can
streamline training while
improving overall communi-
cation," Patrou said.
School District tech literacy
coaches are available to teach-
ers throughout the summer as
they learn on the new com-
puters. Every school is taking
part in' the tech refresh train-
"We have to do staff devel-
opment to prepare all our
teachers in the district on how
to utilize the new tool,"
Furness said Tuesday, when 15
teachers at PV-PV had signed
up for training with Linda
Skinner, a tech literacy coach.
"This will be an ongoing
training program throughout
the course of the summer,"
Furness said of the program,
which is open to any teacher
in the school district.

can go to a private Web site to

to 'build a 11 7000-square-foot
superstore at 630 Atlantic
Boulevard, the former location
of Food Lion and Big Lots. But'
city officials said that the plans
were incomplete and informed
\Val-NMart that, per, city code, 'a
"completed" package of plans,
had to be submitted to the city
by last Friday;
As of late Tuesday afternoon,
City Manager Jim Jarboe said
that city staff had not yet deter-
mined whether Wal-Mart's most
recent plans meet the city's
requirement's to move forward
with a review. Jarboe, -City
Attorney Chris White and
Director Jason Cleghorn met for
a little over an hour Tuesday
afternoon to discuss the issue.
"We got the plans late Friday.
It's going to take a little time to
review them," Jarboe said,
adding that a determination on
the plans could take "another
day or so."
If the plans are deemed
not sufficient by city staff, WVal-
Mart's application would b "nuill

cials. And the company would
have to begin the application
process over again.

limits any one business in the
city from being over 60,000
square feet in gross floor area. ,
The council tentatively passed
the ordinance 4-1 earlier this
The ordinance is aimed at
keeping Wal-Mart or any other
"big box" retailer from moving
into the city. It was proposed
after city officials learned that
Wal-Mart was interested in
building a store in the city.
An attorney representing Wal-
Mart has indicated that the
company will sue the city if
such an ordinance is used to
prevent the project.
WVal-Mart's proposal .has
sparked massive protests from
residents in the city who say the
store will bring too much traffic
to the, area and hurt the city's
locally-owned, small businesses.

The Leader's Opinion
Tree laws that keep '
from axing trees
are basically flawed
Last week, the Jacksonville Beach Codes
--Enforcement Board fined a tree company for not
getting a permit before removing a "protected.
tree" from a single-family home property.
The board stipulated that the company cannot
obtain any permit until the $1,000 fine is paid.
City officials are apparently pleased that "this
time" the city went after the company and not
The city and others with tree laws that prohib-
it residents from removing "protected trees" are
missing the bigger picture.
Owners of single-family homes have a vested
stake in protecting their property value. If they
should be neglectful, there are usually neighbors
ready to make.suggestions on what needs to be
painted, pruned, fixed or removed.
When government starts to mandate what
trees a homeowner may or may not remove that
action should be seen for what it is meddling.
One can argue that landscaping guidelines are
needed for commercial development.
But it is a' rare homeowner who rashly axes
down valuable trees that add both shade and
value to the property. In addition the onset of'
hurricane season makes it imperative that prop-
erty owners riot face obstacles when they seek to
secure their property against falling trees.
A tree law that tells a homeowner he must,
maintain "protected trees" on his property is ill-
adised, no matter how well intentionred its cre-
ators were when 'they adopted the intrusive ordi-
Restrictions that usurp the homeowner's right
to ax as desired are also sure to deter some prop-
erty owners from ever planting protected trees. If
no trees are planted then the owner does not,
have to fear running afoul of the law should
future landscaping plans change.
Letters to the editor:
Resolution is a sham
as it ignores citizens
To the editor:
I have read the draft copy
of the Neighborhood Bill of
Rights: I am incredibly dis-
appointed arid feel betrayed.
The people of this County
told our Commissioners very
- distinctly, we wanted a
Neighborhood Bill of Rights
that would give our associa-
tions protection from nega-
tive impact to our quality of
life by new and/or altered
We asked it be based.on the
City of Jacksonville
Ordinance. This draft is, in
my opinion, a slap in the face
to those of us who champi-
oned the concept. It is first a
Resolution, it is toothless and
ambiguous. The Seaside
Community had a great stake
in the development of a
strong Ordinance. The lack
of notification to Seaside of
changes made to the
Overlook V PUD caused seri-
ous problems. That lack, of
notification and the hours
spent in rectifying the matter
by County Legal and
Planning Staff, the design
team, the developer, the
Seaside. Civic Committee and
affected homeowners, should
never have happened.
It was,. costly for all
involved. With a lackson-ille
like ordinance it would never'
have happened. ,
There was concern by
many that some members of
the BCC were behaving like
they supported the concept
and thit thev would in the
end see to it that the St. Johns
County version of NBR-
would be so lacking in real
enforceable substance, it
would be a joke. Sadly, I
believe the concern was justi-
fied and in my opinion this
"Resolution" is a sham. I
hope all County residents
watch very closely howv each
Commissioner deals with this
"Draft Resolution." Two
incumbents are currently ask-:
ing for your vote in
September. Watch their input
on this matter very closely.
The choice they have is. give
us the strong ordinance we
asked for or, once again, bow
to the interests of the devel-
opers over the needs of the

Trash on the beach repels
To the editor:
While taking anh 'earlier
evening stroll on the pier, my
family and a neighbor couple
were appalled to see the build up
of trash all over the beach this
Memorial Day weekend. We
hear much about the current and
future growth'of our town.
All that growth for good or evil
has put our beach on the map as
a desirable place to live or to
spend a relaxing day., With
growth comes the responsibility
of our government to maintain
the service level needed for a first
class beach city. It also takes a
caring citizenry and courteous
visitors to husband the
Jacksonville's Beaches principal

of do what we can to maintain
our beach this season. City...fix
the trash service. Citizens and
visitors....if the trash cans are
full, take it home with you.

Bill of Riuhts is noorlv executed
To the editor,
For those who are frustrated
by the St. Johns County
Commissioners' decisions, a
new placebo is on the table. I
say placebo because it sounds
good but has no curati e effect.
In addition it has many unde-
sirable side effects. It is inspir-
ingly called a Neighborhood
Bill of Rights NBRi.
The ever-so-positive sales
pitch tells us that we abused
citizens will have "standing"
with which to address the
County Commission before
dire deeds are done. What is
not so well defined is a require-
ment that disputes that might
arrive before the Commission
must be battled out before a
defined neighborhood before
coming to the Commission
itself. The neighborhoods
would be our local gated comn
munity associations and, per-
haps, a super-association that
they don't mention.
Are we surprised that those
responsible for making tough
decisions might make one that
we don't like? With regard to a
government purchase of a pri-
vate company,. the complexity
of valuation is enormous and
there is plenty of room for dis-
agreement whether for scope
or for details.
What is most important is
that these, decisions are made
through the legal processes of
representative democracy. I
believe that tampering with or
impeding the legality, and the
representative nature of the
process is a grave mistake. We
elected them; if we do not
agree with their actions, we can
elect someone else.
A Neighborhood Bill of
Rights might .move much of
the rancor of squabbling
neighbors out of the
Commission's. hearings, might
force opposing points of view
to a tenuous truce. The weight
- I- -
of responsibility for the elected
representative is heavy. The
NBR can.be seen as an escape, a
shift of the deliberative process
from governmental rules to
those of the neighborhood
Are the by-laws and proce-
dures of your neighborhood
association up to this attribu-
tion of responsibility? Aie the
elections democratic? Are, the
people serving on the boards of
these associations capable, will-
ing, and suitable to bring.
opposing parties to agreement
where the economics and risks
may be of a scale far above
their experience? As a generali-
ty, I think not. While there
may be remarkable exceptions,.
they are rare. Where would be
This is especially true of the
people involved.; They signed
on to handle relatively modest
and conflicts, the flower gar-
dens, security gates and what
color you can paint your shut-
ters, and to serve as guidance
for a professional management
company. Most are nice people

ly characterized as a thankless
A few are activists, well stud-,
ied and sincere. Others are sim-
ply gadflies. When these wan-
der outside the: gates of their
community, they have enor-
mous latitude. The' gap
between what they say and the
will of the association member-
ship has only been tested in a
most informal way, if at all.
In fact, the democratic fun-
damentals are wrong. With few
exceptions, associations are not
governed by one person one
vote systems but one house-
hold one vote. What if the
members of the household
have differing positions?
Within the scope of flower
beds and shutter colors, it
might not make any differ-
ence. Quashing the legal proce-
dures of elected representatives
is another matter
If we imagine members of
our association ,, with,' legal.
standing before the County
Commission, how' will .we,
influence what they say? Think
of the development projects
that come before that body.
Some people are compulsively
against 'any development.
Others welcome new construc-
tion as an economic stimulus
arid for its positive effects of
keeping tax rates lower.,
At its worst, the concept of a
Neighborhood Bill of Rights
will impair our representative
government, stir up hostilities
within associations and institu-
'tionalize NIMBY. (not in my '
backyard) attitudes. At its best,
it could be accomplished. by.

dar and allowing more time for

'I have lived outside of this
country and have acquired a
profound respect for represen-
tative government with all its
human imperfections. Both
the heavy grip of centralized
power and the perverse effects
of Athenian or plebiscite'
democracy repel me. The
answer is to pay attention to
that which is at issue before our
local elected representatives,
both the County Commission
and in Tallahassee. If someone
tells you that your representa-
tives or their staffs are inacces-
sible, don't believe it. It's more
likely that the person telling
you that has worn out the wel-

Proud to see Beaches Honor Guard in action
To the editor:
I would like to commend Ric
Smith and the other veterans
who put together the Memorial
Day ceremony at Warren Smith
cemetery .on Monday. I under-
stand that Ric was the spark
that started the ball rolling.
Having served on the Honor
Guard out of Fort Knox KY for
funerals of fallen comrades,
especially from Korea, I was
very much impressed with The
Beaches Honor Guard at this
ceremony. I understand that
they had five services Monday,
so my hat is off to them for a
job well done. It is the mark of
true dedication to the memory
of those who have made the
last muster. The Beaches com-
munities should be very proud
to have such a distinguished
unit to represent us as needed.
On a negative note, it is a
shame more local citizens did
not attend. As a resident of
Neptune Beach I was especially
disappointed our community
did not have an official repre-
sentative present while the
other beach communities did.
Donald R. Jordan
It was before cable and
satellite TV, the Internet,
and other high-tech diver-
sions Beaches dwellers have
available today. Even so, folks
didn't have to be bored then,
in the late 1940s and the
1950s. For instance, they
could occasionally go to see
an operetta put on by the
Beaches Civic Chorus often
at a bygone J.B. community
My dear gal pal Ethel Blalock
was a member of the long-ago-
disbanded Chorus for about
ten years and got to sing in a
bunch of famous shows such
as "The Mikado," ."Rose
Marie," and "Naughty
Marietta." She also warbled in
church. choirs here even
longer. It was clearly a family
thing, because her sister
Charlotte did the same, and
her mother played piano in
church and performed as lead
Ethel. mentioned that her
cousin was also in the Civic
Chorus and that one of her
aunts.wa&s- lead'- sl'oist 'att' a
church in Jacksonville. I began
to think she and her relatives
seemed almost like a Florida
version of "the musical. Von
Trapp ,family in the movie,
"The Sound of Music."
Being fairly unacquainted
with the operetta scene, I had
to research the subject (with
an assist from the Beaches
Area Historical Society). I can
understand why Ethel had so
much fun performing in 'The
Mikado." The names of the
Japanese characters are a hoot;
e.g., "Nanki-Poo," "Ko-Ko,"
"Yum-Yum," and "Pish-Tush."
The .creators, Gilbert &
Sullivan, obviously., were
inspired, since the show has
continued being presented in
various venues. since 1885.,
When young Ethel and
Charlotte were in the Civic
Chorus, there weren't many
hills hereabouts .but the
Beaches were alive with the
sound of music, at least
around the family's, ocean-
view home on First Avenue
South in Jacksonville Beach.
During those pre-air condi-
tioning days, the windows
would often be open as the
girls did their household
chores, meanwhile singing
operetta numbers and church
hymns a cappella. Neighbors
sometimes shouted special
song requests: "How about
'The Old Rugged Cross'?"
Back then, Ethel was a "high
soprano," although she's not
Italian and isn't from New
Jersey. Well, fugedaboudit.
She's extremely proud to be a
Beaches native. In fact, when
someone asks, "Have you lived
here all your life?" she replies,
Jokes aside, Ethel comment-
ed, "Singing was the highlight
of my life. I don't believe any-
body who sings as much as we
did can ever be depressed at
the same time.." Encore!

Sampson, 50, was born
four months after the inci-

what was contained in a
scrapbook her grandmother
gave her when she graduated
from high school in the mid-

After years of flipping

and the 11 brave souls who
flew into Hurricane Janet's

"I didn't learn about the

All three scenarios would

"Stormchasers, "a board of
inquiry into the incident
cleared both pilots of any
negligence, adding "under
the circumstances of sea and
wind, which prevail during
hurricane penetrations, it is
doubtful that a crew could
survive a ditching."
The board recommended,
that subsequent hurricane
hunter flights should be
undertaken only by planes
with four engines.
Memorial services for all 11
men were held at two NAS Jax

VW-4 flew hurricane mis-
sions without loss of life until
the unit was decommissioned
on April. 30, 1975. By: then,
the squadron had flown, more
than 2,000 missions, making
"1,390 penetrations into 281
storms,"'. according to
Despite the risks, hurricane
hunter crews "made no claim
to being a superior ;breed,"
"The weather recon
squadrons would never enjoy
the general adulation accord-,

Most thought of themselves
merely as pilots in another
squadron at .ax."
Meyer, who left the Navy in
1956 as a Petty Officer 1st
Class, has his own theories
about what might have hap-
pened fo the 'crew of
"Snowcloud Five," two" of
whom he knew personally.
"Buck was a good friend of
mine andI knew Clegg from
bunking with him in the bar-
iacks," added Meyer.
"It could have been pilot
error,. they may have flown
into' a water spout or hit a
severe up or down draft."
While fighter pilots and
aerial combat crews are eligi-
ble for decorations such as
the\ Air Medal or the
Distinguished Flying Cross,
Meyer said hurricane crews in
his day were just glad to pad
their wallets with hazardous
duty pay known as "flight
"It was about '$40 or $60:
bucks a month," said Meyer.
"It was a duty we were
expected to perform. We were
just doing our jobs."
