County urges wells
to lower water bills
by LAURA FOWLER
About 6,500 Ponte Vedra res-
idents this spring began writ-
ing checks to the St. Johns
County Utility Department for
their water and sewer instead
of to St. lohns Service
And though about 50 per-
cent of those customers saw
their bills decrease when the
county's new "conservation"
rate structure was imposed, the
remainder saw their bills
increase some by more than
200 percent according to Bill
Young, St. Johns County.
PV hydrants lag on inspections
by LAURA FOWLER
The St. Johns County Utility
Department has hired a two-
man crew to conduct mainte-
nance on 477 fire hydrants in
Ponte Vedra that St. Johns
Service Company failed to
inspect over the past three
years, according to the coun-
ty's utility director.
About 100 of the hydrants
had been inspected as of
Tuesday, and only one failed to
emit water, St. Johns County'
Utility Director Bill young said
in an interview Tuesday.
Most of the hydrants that
have been inspected had caps
that were too tight to open,
In Monday's Ponte Vedra
Beaches Coalition meeting,
Young told residents that
inspecting the hydrants will
help provide better service now

"We're very attentive,"
Young said of the 'service the
count) is providing, adding
that most private utilities do
not inspect their hydrants
Young said private utilities in
St. Johns County take the posi-
tion that they are not responsi-
ble for the yearly maintenance
of such hydrants even
though the utilities own them.
"Historically, they've been
somewhat negligent in the case
of fire hydrants,", he said,
adding that the hydrant issue
is another example of why the
county should control all utili-
ty service within its borders.
Also at the meeting, County
Commissioner Bruce Maguire
of Ponte Vedra said no level of
standards has existed for the
maintenance of hydrants by
About five or six years ago,
the county's fire department
began to check the hydrants,
Maguire said, but it is unclear
whether this is a requirement
of that department.
According to Jeremy
Robshaw, spokesman for the
county's fire services, it is not a

companies to maintain and
repair their hydrants, Robshaw
Typically, county fire person-
nel conduct yearly inspections
to make sure caps on hydrants
aren't rusted or painted closed
and that water flows from

He said these inspections are
for the benefit of the fire
department, so that firefighters
know which hydrants are
working properly. If a hydrant
fails the inspection, the depart-
ment notifies the private utili-
Young said the county's util-
ity department takes its inspec-
tions one step further by actu-
ally testing the strength of the
flow of water. The standard is
500 gallons each minute.
If the flow doesn't meet the
standard, the county will
inspect the pumps and pipes in
the neighborhood and repair

Young told residents
Monday that deep wells, which
reach depths of about 350 feet,
would be better than shallow
wells, which reach up to 90
He said shallow wells tend to
contain water with higher
amounts of iron, which stains
driveways and sidewalks, and
they don't always produce
enough water at that depth.

after polluted water is found was a bureaucratic waste.
It's really very simple:
If residents need to be notified, they need to be noti-
If there really is no danger to public health, then no
notice is necessary.
The state requirement on notification ought to man-
date any necessary notice be done in a timely manner -
not weeks after an infant may have possibly been fed for-
mula made with contaminated water or an invald given
possibly polluted water.
The recent notice to residents said "This is not an
emergency. Your water is safe."
Without timely notice, however,, residents are left;
wondering when they might be told if the water is ever
unsafe. Late notice does not serve the public's interests. d

To the editor:
I have been a resident of the Beaches for
my entire life and the beach I know now
hardly resembles the beach of my childhood.
Of course growth, is inevitable, especially in
Florida, and, despite my somewhat curmud-
geonly attitude towards this growth, there is
still no place' I would rather call home.
Growth is inevitable, but must we sacrifice
aesthetics and good old-fashioned common
sense for this surge in population and
,increase in traffic?
One of the first rules we learn as a child is
to look both ways before crossing the street.
This rule serves us well through childhood,
into our teen years, and finally .into adult-
hood as we take our first steps, learn to ride a
bike, and finally graduate to the all-impor-
tant automobile. This is a rule we never for-
get and one can always see heads craning left
to right and back again at an intersection. I
cannot comprehend how increased traffic
would suddenly make us forget this rule thus
necessitating an overhead walkway.
I do believe that overhead walkways are
important on roads that,are virtually impass-
able, such as 1-95,. roads where ten lanes of
speeding cars spell certain doom for pede
ans. But Third Street will never be 1-95 an

done it myself innumerable times. I
understand the argument for the safter
families with small children, but just wait
a larger gap in traffic- don't try to beat
Yukon that is racing 45mph down Third.
I think it is very important to prom
walking at the Beaches. In a place as ric
natural beauty as the Jacksonville Beache
is a shame that the most used method
transportation is the automobile.
This overhead walkway will cost a h1
amount of money that could be better sp
beautifying actual sidewalks in the man
of Town Center, making walking at the be

condition of property
by JEFFREY MINTON
The ownerr of the con-
demned Palms Apartments -
which Atlantic Beach city offi-
cial's recently said have
become a "haven" for illegal
activity-- has cleaned up the,
property enough to avoid
having the buildings demol-
ished by the city.
But the City -Commissioni
Monday said it is. still .not
pleased with the condition of
the property in the 100 block
of Atlantic.Gardens Circle and
say the current or future
owner of the parcel will be on
a short leash until the proper-
tv is completely redeveloped.
The owner of the dilapidated
apartments, Sunil ,Kologi of
Clifton, Va., in a recent letter
to the city said that the prop-
erty is under contract to be
purchased ,and redeveloped
"into desirable housing."
Mayor Don Wolfson at
Monday's commission meet-
ing had some strong words for
Kologi, who was not present
at the meeting. Wolfson said
that he recently received a let-
ter from Kologi saying that he
wanted to be a good neighbor
to the city.
"I find that to be offensive.
He is, in my opinion the
,truest sense of the- word, a

The apartments were con-
demned by the city In July
2005 for numerous code vio-
lations. And since that time
the vacant buildings became a
"haven" for prostitutes, drug
dealers and transients, say city
officials. Police recently found
drug paraphernalia, used con-
doms, .human waste,, rotten
food items and dead rodents
and cats on the property.
Some juveniles ':tere also
recently caught attempting to
drain the apartment's stag-
nant pool water to use it for
skateboarding. And the prop-
erty was riddled with trash
and leftover items from for-
mer tenants, police said.
The commission two weeks
ago threatened to demolish
the buildings if the property
was not cleaned up and the
buildings boarded and
secured against trespassers by
During the last two weeks

Cancer sufferer reaches out
to others by teaching yoga
by ASHLEY MILLS
When Christina Phipps fin-

She just wasn't sure how.
A practice of yoga for four

three, Phipps noticed that

she could reach out to those

Phipps continued to teach
classes throughout the course
of her treatment, missing
only two days of class after
her mastectomy. Two weeks
into the chemotherapy, she
lost her hair, her eyebrows,
and her eyelashes.
"I had bad days and good
days," she said, "but more
good days than bad."
Phipps said yoga gives her
strength and serenity to han-
dle her diagnosis. Now she
wants to help other women
to do the same.

The exercises are especially
beneficial for women who

"Yoga does bring such a
sense of well-being, and
you're really taking care of
yourself," she said.

Dane Gilbert by a banner in Fletcher's administration office that
commemorates the school's state runner-up finishes in.boys
and girls soccer in 1998. Gilbert's son, Joseph, played on the
'98 boys team and is a soccer coach at Kernan Middle School.
Gilbert: Milkin award
winner in 1999 at Parker
Cont. front A.-9
During Gilbert's tenure at
Terry Parker, the school made
the shift to block scheduling
and instituted a study skills
course for incoming freshmen.
"Block scheduling is a
change we are undergoing
now at Fletcher," said Gilbert.
"And the district is imple-
menting a keystone course
this coming school year that
centers on career exploration
for ninth graders."
Gilbert switched gears him-
self in 2000, leaving the
school ranks to take a district
position as human resources
director for the school system.
His "downtown" job includ-
ed hiring a number of his for-
mer students as teachers.
resources was a great experi-
ence, but it wasn't a job I
wanted to do for the next six
years," said Gilbert, who put
his name in the ring for the
principal position at Nease
High in 2005.
Gilbert was one of two final-
ists for the job that eventually
went to Dr. Linda Thomson,
an out-of-state applicant.
Gilbert admits that he was
"disappointed" when he did,
n't get the Nease job. He said
the school is a "centerpiece of
its community," much like
"But things happen for a
reason," added Gilbert, who
Swas offered the Fletcher prin-
cipalship this past spring, after
Dr. Helene Kirkpatrick was
transferred to Forrest High.
"Fletcher is considered a
very good job in the county'.
We have a large amount of
teachers who want to transfer
heie and a waiting list for stu-
dents who want to come here
on special assignment.
"And another great thing in
addition to the high level of
academic offerings here is the
high level of our arts and ath-
letics. It's very well-rounded.
You don't see too many
schools that are strong in
everything as we are."
Fletcher does not have an
International Baccalaurate pro-
gram like Nease or Stanton
Prep, but Gilbert said the
school is offering a record
number of Advanced
Placement, college credit
courses this coming school
year to boost its rigor.
"We are tripling our number
of AP seats," added Gilbert,
who once taught summer
school math at Fletcher and
led the Senator boys soccer
team to a district title in 1981.
"Being enrolled in AP cours-
es in high school is a better
indicator of success in college
than grade-point average or
SAT scores. We have a lot of'
students who walk out of here
with a lot of college credit."
Gilbert continued to coach
youth.soccer at the,Be.chq4
even after he left Fletcher in
the late 1980s.
His only regret, he said, was
that he should have stayed
longer as Fletcher's soccer
Gilbert's 1981 team went 17-
1-4 overall, losing to eventual
state runner-up Ed White High
in the state playoffs.
His oldest son, Joseph, who
graduated from Fletcher in
1999, played on Fletcher's
1998 state runner-up soccer
team. He's now a teacher and'
soccer coach at Kernan Middle
Gilbert said he plans to be a
familiar face at many extracur-
ricular activties at Fletcher,
and not just during soccer sea-

"Parents and students will

Gilbert, adding that his drive

On June 17, Nease successful-

last year's Blazer passing tour-
nament in Valdosta, Ga.
Rising junior quarterback Ted
Stachitas has led Nease the past
two weekends. The Panthers
topped Tallahassee Lincoln for
this year's Valdosta title.
"\When we went to the
Valdosta tournament last year
and won with Timmy Tebow,
every one of our receivers was a
senior," said Nease coach Craig
Howard. "When we went this
year, there was not one starter
who had played in that tourna-
ment. Ve were thrilled to death
our kids fought so hard to win.
I was shocked, and excited."
Nease assistant head
coach/defensive line coach
David San Juan, who coordi-
nated the Sunshine State tour-
nament, had high praise for
Fletcher quarterback Marty
McCann, who led the Senators
over the Panthers 27-18 in both
schools' first game.
"That kid is a very impressive
player, both fundamentally
and mentally. He was one of
the stories of the weekend,"
said San Juan, who credited
Fletcher quarterbacks coach Jeff
Before the tournament,
Fletcher head coach Joe
Reynolds said, "This will be the
first passing thing we've done.
We'll see what happens. If we
can't complete any passes,
we're just going to run the ball
next year. If we complete one,
maybe we'll throw once during

After losing to Fletcher,
Nease continued to stumble.
"First Coast beat the tar out
of us," said San Juan. "\Ve also
lost a close game to Forrest."
The Panthers closed pool
play with a 6-3 record, while
the Senators wound up 5-4, los-
ing their last game to Raines.
"If Fletcher had beaten
Raines, that would have
knocked us out of the finals,"
said San Juan.
The passing tournament,
which had been scheduled as a
two-day event, was compressed
to one because of Sunday's
threatening weather forecast.
There was one brief shower
Saturday, after the first games
had been played.
"Team is the key to win-
ning," Stachitas said of how to
capture a 7 on 7 tournament.
"Just play how you know to
play, run all your routes right.

Nease High receiver Chris Briggs reaches for a long pass against Fletcher High during last Saturday's Sunshine Invitational 7 on 7

ber of area high schools in competitive passing drills.

Full speed ahead toward Jags training camp
By ROBERT DeANGELO
With organized team activities now
over, some Jacksonville Jaguars players
will rest for a few weeks while others
like QB Byron Leftwich and his
receivers will stay in town to work on
passing drills until training camp offi-
cially opens July 28.
Leftwich and the Jaguars coaching
staff hope someone will emerge
from a talented group of receivers,
including Ernest Wilford and
Matt Jones, to fill the void left
by veteran limmy Smith who
retired the day before spring
"We're asking Reggie
[Williams] to do a whole lot
more this year and we believe
he'll do that," said Jaguars
head coach Jack Del Rio.
The retirement of Smith
leaves Jacksonville without a
proven deep threat, which -4 f
means opposing defenses
can stack players close to
the line of scrimmage in an
effort to limit Jacksonville's
ability to run the ball.
ones replaced Smith in most
of Jacksonville's offensive
schemes during the spring, while
offered optimism that the Jaguars may
have a fresh offensive weapon in
rookie tight end Marcedes
Lewis. The 6'6", 262-
pound Lewis caught
nearly every ball
thrown his way this
spring and presents
Leftwich with a huge
target and com-

Chris Roberson makes an

every other day and he's working out
hard in Miami with a guy that we
know is getting him into great shape,"
Leftwich said. "He'll be here when
training camp starts and as a veteran
he knows our system and what's
expected of him."
Veterans and rookies are expected to
report for preseason training camp July
28 with practices getting underway the
next day at 10:15 a.m. and 7:15 p.m.
Two-a-days will continue until the
Jaguars' first scrimmage August 4 at
7:30 p.m. inside Alltel Stadium, fol-
lowed by a mock game Aug. 5 at 10
Of the 85 players who are expected
to report for training camp, 20 will be
cut as the Jaguars trim their roster to
65 by Aug. 29. Final cuts will be made
- on Saturday, Sept. 2 when NFL teams
must reduce their rosters to 53 active
Training camp includes 23 practice
sessions from July 29 until Aug. 11
and is open to the public. The Jaguars'
training facility includes bleacher seat-
ing to accommodate approximately
2,250 spectators. Restrooms and limit-
ed concessions are also available for
fans attending practices.
Beginning Monday, July 24, fans
can call the Jaguars Training Camp
Hotline to receive the daily practice
schedule. Phone number is 633-6525
and the hotline message is updated
daily to reflect any changes or addi-
tions to the schedule.
Jacksonville's first preseason game
takes place Saturday, Aug. 12 as the
team travels to Miami in a 7:30 p.m.
If the spring practices are any indi-
cation, the Jaguars calling card next
season will once again be defense. The
,defense dominated especially dur-
ing passing drills but Leftwich
claims the practices were more give-
"Offense had its days. Defense had
its days," the quarterback said. "That's
the way it usually is and when you
look at film it's never as one-sided as
you think it is."
Jacksonville's preseason schedule
also includes hosting the Carolina
Panthers Aug. 19 in a 7:30 p.m. start,
playing host to th6 Tampa Bay
Buccaneers Aug. 26 in an 8 p.m. kick-
off, then traveling north for a final
preseason game against the Atlanta
Falcons Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m.
The regular season beings at home
Sept. 10 in an eagerly-anticipated
match-up against the Dallas Cowboys.
The game is slated to be nationally tel-
evised by the FOX Network with a
4:15 p.m. kickoff.

Hitting coach Easier brings lots
of MLB experience to the Suns
By REX EDMONDSON
Like his coaching palp Danny
Darwin who handles the pitch-
ers, Mike Easier brought a ton of
major league baseball experi-
ence with him this season to aid
Suns manager John Shoemaker.
At the turn of the season
Jacksonville's success in winning
the first half makes both men
,Hitting coaches don't
step into the box against
enemy teams, of
course, any more than
pitching coaches toe
the rubber and i
face the heavy
hitters. But the-
hours of teaching
with the troops
leaves their indel-
Players listen to the coaches
because guys like Easier, and
Darwin have "been there," and
just maybe they have the magic
ingredient that can make major
leaguers out of strugglers.
Even the best of golfers refer
to their coaches now and then
and so it is with baseball players
."going up, even, some who have
made it, but have stumbled into
a slump. Ballplayers, like golfers,
are a superstitious lot.
Anyone who saw. the
Pittsburgh Pirates in the World
Series in 1979 remembers just
how good they were under
Charles. "Chuck" Tanner and
watching the antics of Willie'
Stargell and his bombers, That
was the team that Easier'broke
in with and before his 15 major
league seasons were over,
including a .293 average with
118 homers and 522 runs batted
in, he had journeyed around
enough to be an honorary
member of National Geogra-
phic, with stops at Pittsburgh,
me Boston Red Sox, New York
Yankees and Philadelphia
Phillies. Also, playing in
both leagues gave him a
good inside on
restaurants from the
East to the West
Coast. One more
reason the play-
ers want his
known as "The
Hit .Man" while-
with me Pirates,
from the first year when the
Pirates won the World Series
and' gave him his first ring. He
recorded a .300 batting average
or better for four seasons,
including two years with more
than 20 home runs. He was also
elected to the 1981 All-Star'
After his major league career
was over. Easier did duty as a
minor league manager, college
coach and major league hitting
coach for the Milwaukee
Brewers, Boston Red Sox and St.
Louis Cardinals. With his record.
it's no wonder that'the Dodgers
were eager to have him and use
his knowledge to hone up their
minor league prospects.
"Mike Easier has been one of
our best young players to come
up," Chuck Tanner said of him
after the '79 championship sea-
son. "He's a real asset with his
hitting, but also as a team man.
I think he'd make a fine manag-
er. He studies the game."
The 55-year-old Cleveland,
Ohio, native likes the talent he's
inherited with the Suns and the
players speak well of him.
"I like it here," Easier says.
"And the. Dodgers gave us some
fine talent to work with -
(Andy) LaRoche is going to do
fine up there. I don't take any
credit for Matt Kemp. He was a
natural from the start, but you
still have to work with them
because they're so young."
Shoemaker and president
Peter Bragan, Jr. tell you that no
team can win very long without
top coaches and they mink this
year's pair are as good as you can
find in the minors.
"If we go all the way this year,
win the second half, too,",
Bragan says, "a big chunk of the
credit goes to our coaches,
Darwin and, Easler. They make
the job a lot easier for
Shoemaker and the combina-
tion of manager and coaches is
the best, I think, we've ever had
Both Darwin and Easier earn
their pay. Before even- game you.
can find Easier in the batting
cage, watching and directing
the Suns, It's paying off.

.tee. Theodore is a charming tiger kitten
with white boots and chest. Fur will be fluf-
fy. He Is a little lap kitten Maggy is a.solid
black short hair. She is sweet as can be,
and purrs all the time. Callie is a short hair
Calico with her white socks On. She is live-
ly and fun. Rosie and Rutherford are sister
and brother. They are black and white with
white chests and socks. They are full of
fun, fluffy and large for their age. All kit-
tens are 10 weeks old and have all their
baby shots. They have been taken care of
very well. Also in need of, a home is Mor-
ris. Morris is a 2-year old tuxedo cat. He is
most gentle and elegant. His fur is short,
black and white. Morris is a great compan-
ion. He would be ideal for an older person
who wants company, but not the playful-
ness of a kitten. Then there is Chloe. She
is petite, black and white with white socks.
Her fur is fluffy and she has a very fluffy
tail. Chloe is full of energy. At ten months
old she loves to play and play! Chloe is
small, and will be a very small cat. She is
so cute. Both Morris and Chloe have all
their shots (including feline luk.) and are
fixed. If you would like one of these won-
