Ex-budget director sees county 'problem'
by LAURA FOWLER
Drawing on his experience
balancing seven years' worth
of budgets for St. Johns
County, Joe Vonasek said
Monday that recent studies
predicting millions of dollars
worth of debt for the county
are on target.

The St. Johns Board of
County Commissioners voted
Tuesday to reduce the millage
rate for the county's general
The board approved a rate of
7.0475 mils for property own-
ers in some parts of the county
including most of Ponte
S That represents a drop of a
0.0025 mils from the current
One mil equals $1 for every
$1,000 in assessed valuation.
The millage is for certain
county services. Property own-
eis' tax bills will include sever-
al other categories of taxes,
such as those levied by the
School Board, the Anastasia
Mosquito Control District and
the St. Johns River Water
See VILLAGE, A-3
County told members of the
Ponte Vedra Beaches Coalition
that professional studies clear-
ly show the county's expenses
are outgrowing its revenue.
"There's a technical term
that we use to describe it and
it's called a problem," Vonasek
He said the county's propos-
al to borrow money to pay for
capital improvement projects
merely will make matters
worse especially when those
improvements are largely for
parks and recreation areas.
The county plans to borrow
about $49 million for capital
improvements, which would
produce a $3.1 million annual
payment on the debt service.
In the long run, parks and
recreation projects such as
swimming pools often cost
more to maintain and staff
than to build, Vonasek said.
Borrowing more money,
Vonasek said, will only
increase the county's operating
expenses in the future.
"Even if you have the capac-
ity to borrow. it's not always
a wise decision," he said.
On the list of possible solu-
tions. Vonasek suggested
implementing a new tax dedi-
cated to funding capital
improvement projects and a
new system for prioritizing
Some residents at Monday's
meeting, however, balked at
the idea of a new tax.
"I'm not willing to pay more
taxes to bail them [the county
commissioners] out of their
bad decisions," said Ellen
Vonasek drew his conclu-
sions Monday from two profes-
sional financial studies con-
ducted on the county one
by Public Financial
Management (PFNf) and one
by economic consultant Henry
The PFM study predicts a
deficit of $20.4 million by the
year 2011, while the Fishkind
study predicts a deficit of $35.2
million by then.

Palm Valley residents living
along the Intracoastal
Waterway may want to check
their dock lights to see if they
comply with an ordinance
In a 4-1 vote, the St. Johns
Board of County
Commissioners approved the
prohibition of mercury vapor

in the county. Commissioner
Cyndi Stevenson cast the dis-
There are about 280 docks
along the waterway in Palm
Valley, although the number
illuminated by mercury vapor
lights was not available
Starting in about 45 days,
$50 citations will be issued for
such high-intensity lights,
and repeat offenders could
face up to $500 in fines or 60
days in jail, or both.
"1 think just shielding those
is not the answer I think
they need to be gone," said
Barry Benjamin, a commis-
sioner of the St. Augustine
Port, Waterway and Beach
District who proposed the
ordinance to commissioners
In Tuesday's meeting,
Benjamin told commissioners
that he has spoken with many
boaters and law enforcement
officers who say the lights are
becoming a real problem.
"When you use the high
intensity lights, there's quite a
glare," he said.
After discussing the ordi-
nance in a June 13 workshop,
the board decided to restrict
the use of mercury vapor
lights, which can blind
boaters and prevent them
from seeing illuminated navi-
gational markers. *
According to the ordinance,
"the unrestricted use of dock
lighting harms the public
health, safety and welfare by
causing unreasonable glare

Condo sales cool
by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF I WRITERR
High rise developments con-
tinue to sprout along the hori-
zon in Jacksonville Beach, but
the demand for pricey condo-
miniums is waning, according
to some Beaches real estate
Mark Werner of the WVerner
Realty Group, a real estate
developer, confirmed Monday
that the market is slowing, cit-
ing a growing inventory.
"Anyone with a piece of a
brain knows that the market is
changing all over the United
States," Werner said. "People
are still looking, but there is
more to look at."
The price tags on many of
the new developments are dis-
couraging younger, first-time
buyers with limited income, as
well as those who want a con-
dominium as a secondary resi-
dence, he said.
"Some [condos] are.not sell-

cially as a second home,"

the location of the Lee

those 53 years I have known
that section of Beach
Boulevard was a cemetery
for black people.
How can anyone dispute
that? just because D.O.T, the
city, or whatever construc-
tion company decides they
need a piece of that property
to widen Beach Boulevard,
does that mean they are
allowed to just "dig up" that
section without any care or
concern for the people, and
the families of the people
who are buried there?
What's next? Warren
Smith Cemetery? Need a
piece of that? Help your-
selves! Anything to serve the
Jax Beach doesn't look like
Jax Beach any more. In fact,
it doesn't ever look like
Daytona Beach. Now, it only
bears a strong resemblance
to South Miami Beach.
It's disgusting. Digging up
graves is progress? I wonder
how enthusiastic the Powers
That Be would like to have
their relatives disturbed, all
in the name of progress, of
course? I'm guessing, they
wouldn't be happy at all.
The City, and D.O.T., can
use any and all devises they
want to, and come up with
the solution that most fits
their intentions, But, that
property has, and always will"
be, Lee Kirkland Cemetery.
May God rest their souls.

fighting this intrusion.

Apply direct pressure to fire chief
To the Editor:
I read your article on July
19, 2006, with much interest.
I have been a citizen of Jax
Beach since 1979. I'served the
Jax Beach Fire Department for
over 6 years before moving on
to the Jacksonville Fire Rescue
Department in 1994. While a
competitive salary was one of
my motivating factors it was
not the only thing. The collat-
'eral duties of a firefighter in
JBFD can be overwhelming.
Morale was bad, although
under a different fire chief, I
'expressed my concerns in my
exit interview, although I
think my concerns fell on

bility. I am not criticizing the
firefighters of the JBFD.
Whenever I have been on
calls with them they give 110
So how does the depart-
ment stop the hemorrhage of
firefighters to St. Johns and
Jacksonville Fire Department?
It's not 'by paying less and
expecting more. It's by apply-
ing direct pressure to the fire
chief to provide a better work
environment and better pay.
Maybe the city of Jax Beach
should consider letting the
City of Jacksonvile provide
services, as Atlantic and
Neptune Beach have done. I
believe we are paying taxes for
services to Jacksonville any-

"I complained" about having
no shoes until I found a man
who had no feet."
That bit of biblical philoso-
phy is one which might be
especially appropriate these
days when so many of our '.
armed forces veterans are
coming home from Iraq as
amputees. Losing a limb is
obviously a traumatic, life-
altering experience that no
one but the victim can truly
That's why I've been amazed
by the way in which some of
these vets have rolled with the
devastating punch which life
has thrown at them.
Recently, there was a news
item on TV showing a
returned amputee who went
jogging with President Bush.
Impressive adaptation to the
loss of a limb is, however, not'
confined to members of the'
A prime example is Kenny
Owen, age 37. On July 13,
1997, he was walking home at
night in Jacksonville, and;
when crossing railroad' tracks;
tripped and fell, gashing his
head and knocking himself'
out. A passing train ran' over
him and cut off his leg.'
Later, another train came
through, again without seeing
him.. Finally, the engineer of a
third train spotted his body,- : i
and he was soon aboard a Life

Hospital: (now called Shands).,:
He,:had lost seven pints of
blood but still survived.

though, he was in the'dol-
drums mentally. "I went very
far down'," he told me. "I
hated everybody in the
world." He said it took him.
several years to get over it.
Now, having been fitted.with
an artificial leg (via the help
of a special friend) and land-
ing a job, his attitude is back
in the good zone, He even
met the 911 operator who
took the call.
At American Legion Post
129, where he's a member of
the Sons of the American
Legion unit (through his dad,
Edward John Owen), he
enjoys dancing and amazes
people with his agility, espe-
cially without his replacement

energetic rabbit and relearred
how to ride a bicycle, pedaling
with one leg' and turning

Actually, his metal limb isn't
an unmixed blessing. Hie
admits that sometimes it gets
heavy and he reverts to

restored, and he can joke
about his situation; e.g., that
it wasn't his fault if the train
was running on time.
How did Kenny shake the
blues? He explained, "I got
tired of being 'poor' me'."

Training day goes live
-Smith was on vacation i
S Washington, D.C., having din-

police dispatchers in
Jacksonville Beach issued the
SWAT callout at 6:55 p.m. .
Minutes earlier in the 200

At the time of the shooting,
Sgt. Tom Bingham, the acting
JBPD SWAT commander in
Smith's absence, was on a
training exercise with the
majority of his unit in Nassau
County, participating in a
mock school shooting scenario
at Callahan High School.
The unit quickly ditched the
exercise, switched to live
ammunition and raced back to
Jacksonville Beach, lights
blinking arid sirens blaring.
"As we Were heading down I-

calling the other [SWAT] team

Another tactical disadvan-
tage faced by the SWAT opera-
tors that night was that the
hunted, not the hunters, held
the high ground.
"Our main concern was that
the apartment was on the sec-
ond story, and the approaches
were bad," recalled Smith, who
arrived on the'scene well after
midnight after .catching a
plane out of D.C.
"What was going through
our mind was that he knew he
shot and killed.at least one per-
son, [and]' he had kidnapped
and taken people hostage. He
had *nothing to lose. We
thought he was going. to come
Added Bingham: "Numerous
times [the suspect] said, 'I'm
going to come out shooting. If
you come in here, I will kill
you. I will make you kill me.' "
A niajor tactical advantage
for SWAT was that Rentas-
Rivera picked a bad spot to
make a last stand.
The two-story apartment
had limited escape routes.
Police cut power to the build-
ing and the surrounding city
block and disconnected the
main phone line.
By midnight, both police
and the suspect had settled in
for a long night.

an aspiring police officer who
had applied for a job'with a
Central Florida police agency
two weeks before 'attempting
to murder his girlfriend 'in
Jacksonville Beach, finally sur-

Mutual aid operation
According to the SWAT
team's after-action report, the
"method of resolution" in the
Rentas-Rivera incident was by
not negotiated surrender.
However, the action of the
negotiators, Smith said in his
report, "kept the situation
from escalating, which in turn
led to a successful conclusion."

Now in its 13th year, the
program that began as a cloth-
ing drive has evolved into a
and a family affair for Wolfson.
Her husband, Don Wolfson,
the mayor of Atlantic Beach,
has been involved with' the
program since its inception,
greeting children and families
at the door.
"it's just kind of funny that
here he is in this position as
mayor, but he's been doing all
this stuff all this time," she
Wolfsori's children 'are also
highly involved with the
event. Her daughter, _Erin, a
student at,the Levin College of
Law at the University 'of
Florida, helped to pioneer
'BEAM's Put a Smile on a Child
program in 1999.
Through the use of, the Smile
Express, a 40-foot' van, dentist's
have completed more than
1,600' appointments for, chil-
dren without access to dental
"And Erin's work with the
program helped her to earn a
scholarship to Vanderbilt
University, Wolfson said.
In addition to her family,
Wolfson relies on a core group
of volunteers to help the event
run smoothly. She lovingly
refers to the volunteers that
come back year after year as
"the BEAM team."
Matt Fox, 23, is one of them.
He has volunteered for the
event for the past nine years.
This year, he is taking time
off from work to help set up
and sort clothing. He said that
it is easy for people at the
Beach to forget that there is a
less affluent group of people
who struggle out here.
Back to School with BEAM is
an important reminder for the
community, he said.
"I love what Mrs. Wolfson
has created," Fox said. "It's
such a great community
The event is run by about
150 to 200 volunteers.
Churches and civic groups,
such as the Oceanside Rotary,
help in collection efforts. Also,
many of the volunteers for the
program also shop for their

Nancy and Mike Riesmeyer of Atlantic Beach with an ice sculpture filled with colorful fruit and flowers.:The couple own a catering
business in Jacksonville Beach.
Riesmeyer's ice creations works of art
by KATHY NICOLETTI
P ittsburgh native Mike
Riesmever grew up play-
ing in the snow just like
all the other kids on his
Snowmen were a common
sight in the neighborhood
except at Riesmeyer's house.
That's because Riesmeyer's
snow creations were a little
more elaborate. such as a Santa
or maybe some reindeer.
Years later, Riesmeyer, a
Jackson\ille Beach caterer,
was reintroduced to the cre-
ative possibilities of simple
frozen water during his stud-
ies at the Culinary Institute of
America in Hyde Park, N.Y.
One day of class instruction
was devoted to teaching the
students what Riesmever
called the "engineering
basics" of ice sculpture.
"This was mostly the do's
and don'ts" he added.
Each student was given a
block of ice, a chisel, and a
shaver and told to begin
working on their sculpture.
Riesmeyer's first ice sculp-
ture was a cornucopia, the
suggested subject for the class.
Since graduating from the
Culinary Institute in 1981,
Riesmeyer spent several years
at 4 Diamond hotels and pri-
vate clubs before opening his
own business, Designer Ice, in
Five years later, he and his
wife, Nancy, also became the
owners of Shindigs Custom
Catering and Events, not far
from their Atlantic Beach
Riesmeyer estimates that he
has sculpted more than 2,000
blocks of ice.
Before beginning to work
on a block of ice, Riesmeyer
looks at the ice until he can
"see" the design he will sculpt
from the block.
Riesmeyer uses chisels,
shavers, chainsaws, and
power tools to turn a 300-
pound block of ice into art.
At Designer Ice a special
ice-making machine makes a
solid block of ice in four to
five days during the warmer
The machines removes air
from the water as it freezes
resulting in a finished block
that is crystal clear.
Riesmeyer dons a snowsuit,
boots, gloves, and a hat
which leaves only his eves
visible to work in the large
walk-in freezer where all the
sculpting is done.
The length of time to com-
plete a piece varies from less
than an hour to several hours,
Ice sculpting demonstra-
tions always attract a lot of
interest from both kids and
adults, and Riesmeyer has
given several demonstrations
for local schools, scout
groups, and regularly partici-
pated in the St. Augustine Fire

Mike Reismeyer of Atlantic Beach floats silk rose petals in layers of ice blocks as they form in special ice making machines.
Recipes: Shindigs Marinated Melon, Cole Slaw
Cont. from A-8
and Ice event.
One of Riesmeyer most pop-
ular sculpture designs for wed-
dings is a pair of kissing swans
with wings outstreached and
graceful necks forming a heart
in the center.
He customizes these by
imbedding flower petals in
the ice to match the wedding
party colors. Also popular at
weddings are ice displays with
the names of the couple or
even their photograph imbed-
ded in the ice.
Other designs for table dis-
plays that Riesmever has done
are vases filled with flowers,'
large open clam shells, sports
mascots, Super Bowl trophies,
and fish bowls.
He also has completed
impressive pieces using several
blocks of ice for large-scale
events. One ol Riesmeyer,s
favorites is a medieval castle
complete with a knight with a
sword and a dragon that peri-
odJca!ly breathed "fire." A fog
machine connected to the
' dragon supplied the "fire."
Ice serving bars can be
made large enough to accom-
modate several bartenders
serving guests at large events
by using several block of ice.
Riesmever has customized
these e with company logos,
other decorative elements,
bottles of a featured liquor
imbedded in the ice, or drink
Joining the edges of differ-
ent blocks of ice together is
easier than might be expected,
said Riesmeyer. The edges are
sprayed with water which
freezes them together form-
ing a solid bond.
The design for each sculp-
ture needs to be "engineered"
to keep the sculpture balanced
and in place as it gradually
melts while on display.
For example, a ballerina on
pointe would not be a good
choice for an ice sculpture
unless the ballerina is support-
ed.by something else in the
design to give it stability, said
Moving a sculpture to the
site where it will be used also
presents challenges. The
weight of even a small piece is
considerable, but one that is
made up of several blocks can
weigh more than hundreds of
Sculptures need to adjust
gradually to changes in tem-
perature as they are moved
from the freezer. Too much of
a temperature shock can cause
the ice to crack and even to
As the sculpture adjusts to a
warmer temperature, a thin
layer of condensation forms
on the surface of the piece but
the ice remains crystal clear as
Sit melts away.
Many of Riesmeyer,s ice
sculpture are created for
events that Shindigs caters in
private homes or larger ven-
ues. People are always fasci-
nated by ice sculptures and a
small piece can create a theme
for a party, said Nancy
Even simple ice bowls used
with a sterile inner liner are a
creative and stylish way to
serve salads and cold dishes
for a buffet. More elaborate
displays with different levels
can be used for serving as well
: as for a focal point for a table.
One of Mike Riesmeye('s
recent culinary creations was
made for a two tiered ice
sculpture made to serve fruit.
His new recipe for Shindigs
Marinated Melon filled the
top of the sculpture while a
variety of berries, melons, and
tropical flowers filled the larg-
er bottom layer.
Some other Shindigs recipes
which the couple suggested
could be used in ice sculpture
containers or other containers
are two cold punches and
their signature.cole slaw.
The following are sonil recipes
from Nanc' and Mike Rieslerer.

More than 60 teams from all
over Florida put on an exciting
show for the Comcast Cable
cameras Saturday and Sunday at
the World Gym Summer Blast
volleyball tournament on the
sands of Jacksonville Beach.
"It was probably, the best
we've had in Jacksonville in 10
years," said tournament direc-
tor Jay Miller, who also heads
the Jacksonville Volleyball
Club. "TT coverage made a big

high caliber of competitors to

brought out spectators in
greater numbers and con-
tributed to an overall feeling of
excitement, Miller said. It
marked the first time the popu-
lar summer series of beach vol-
leyball tournaments has been
taped for broadcast.
"It made it seem more of a
festive weekend," said Miller.

The tournament is slated to
be broadcast on August 4, Miller
said. Although dealing with the
TV coverage was more work
than usual, the tournament
director said the effort was
worthwhile because it helps give
local volleyball more exposure.
While taping the event for

important concern. The tourna-

Team Florida finds lax success
SDespite being put together on short notice
and with 24 members coming from siL different
youth lacrosse leagues around the state, Team
~lorida proved to be a highly successful effort.

matches played against teams from traditional

lIelly Hawkins and sisters Allie and Amanda
Santillo, as well as the McCords' daughter,
Taylor, posted victories over New York's Hudson
Valley, Eastern Massachusetts, San Diego and
Team California while losing only to Team
Texas. Another game was rained out.
Amanda Santillo won Team Florida's opening
draw with Hudson Valley, their first opponent,
after which she sprinted down the middle of the
field uncontested and scored a scant 15 seconds
into the match.
"It was a remarkable festival for a great group
of girls who had only practiced together twice as
an entire group, and a bold statement for the
state of lacrosse in the Sunshine State," said Paul
Over the course of the festival, in which nei-
ther scores nor standings were kept, 19 of Team
Florida's 22 field players either scored goals or
assisted on goals, and 14 girls tallied multiple

At Team Florida's formation meeting earlier
this year, the expectations were to field a team
that could be competitive and reasonably com-
'pete against the best teams in the country.
The girls from the siL different leagues were
chosen through tryouts the end of April. The
first practice was held the middle of May, and
June 3 was a "play day" in St. Augustine for 10
of the U-15s against high school league girls.
Another smaller session was held June 10, and
Team Florida's final practice was called June 17,
