The atmosphere was thick
with scathing accusations and
character attacks in St.
Augustine Monday during a
televised political forum.
Six of the seven candidates
* for two seats on the St. Johns
Board of County
Commissioners spoke at the
forum sponsored by the St.
Johns County Civic
Association Roundtable. The
taped forum will be rebroad-
In an apparent move to gain
voter trust, incumbent
Commissioner Bruce Maguire
offered 13 years of his tax
records and challenged his
Republican opponent, Tom
Manuel, to do the same.
"The question is: who do
you trust?" Maguire said,
adding that his family has
lived in the area for four gener-
Maguire of Ponte Vedra
Beach, who represents District
4, hinted during the forum
that his opponent has ques-
tionable business partnerships
that involve offshore gambling
in the Caribbean.
"I appreciate Mr. Maguire
covering my resume so I don't
have to do it," Manuel joked in
his opening statement.
Later he said Maguire's com-
ments show that "St. Johns
County is a battleground.. of
growth, and it's a battleground
of greed and money."
Maguire defended his
actions, saying they were made
in response to an earlier state-
ment by Manuel, who said
Nlaguire's commission votes
are bought by developer con-
Manuel did not directly
respond to Maguire's com-
ments and said after the meet-
ing that he has never personal-
ly attacked Maguire.
Meanwhile, District 2
Commissioner Karen Stern also
found herself defending her
which total more than
A forum mediator asked how
Stern and Maguire can "hon-
estly" say their votes were not
influenced by large contribu-
tions from developers and spe-
cial interest groups.
"Any time this comes up, I
feel that my integrity is being
questioned," Stern said.
"It is," several audience
members said loudly.

Trustees of the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
NIMSDI, seeing a jump-start on
sidewalk projects in the MSD,
Monday agreed to help a group
of residents pay for a quarter-
mile stretch of sidewalk.
That group, consisting of
about 26 neighbors in the 800,
900 and 1000 blocks of Ponte
Vedra Boulevard, has agreed to
pay for most of the
project, said Dana
Current, who lives
in the 900 block.
"Our roadway is I would li

Current told Vedra d
trustees at their Core
monthly meeting at
the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch --Doug
"W\Ven I go to
take my children to the beach .
. it's a very dangerous walk."
Current said he had secured
promises from about 90 per-
cent of the 26 property owners
to help pay for a 3-foot side-
He asked MSD trustees to pay
for another foot of the side-
walk, estimated to cost $17,490
for 1,650 linear feet, a estimate
that trustees noted is lower
than others they had heard.
MSD chairman Bob Reesh
said an estimate he got about
six months ago "was a lot more
than this." -and -trustee Al
Hollon said the county's side-
walk cost is $65 per linear foot.
"They tend to over-engineer
the thing." trustee Rob Becker
said, referring to St. Johns

How did commissioners vote?
by LAURA FOWLER
St. Johns County Commissioners Bruce Maguire and
Karen Stern, both running for reelection, have been
criticized for their commission votes approving land
use and rezoning changes.
In recent months, constituents as well as the incum-
bents' opponents have said Stern and Maguire have
approved up to 99 or 100 percent of developments.
Using a report produced by the St. Johns County
Civic Association Roundtable, The Leader researched
the voting records of all five current commissioners for
one year 2005 when 127 votes were taken,
according to the report.
Those development-related agenda items included
land use changes, zoning changes, zoning and non-
zoning variances and modifications to already
approved Planned Unit Developments.
The following percentages reflect the "aye" votes
given by each commissioner last year, based on the
total number each commissioner voted on.
Absences and recuses were counted but are not
included in the percentages that follow:
Jim Brvant ........... 94.3 %
Ben Rich ............ 80.3%t
Cyndi Stevenson ....... 93.4":)
Bruce Maguire ......... 94.4%1
Karen Stern ........... 97.2%
Absences during these items:
Approval rate of land use or comprehensive plan
Bryant ................ 91.6%
Rich .................. 66.7%
Stevenson .............. 95.8%
Maguire ............... 94.1%

Community seeks assurances on 'sacred ground'

how to handle potential grave

Letters to the editor:
Consider source when
To the editor:
Since being soundly defeat-
ed in her bid for re-election to
the Board of County
Commissioners of St. Johns
County four years ago, Mary
Kohnke has been an extreme-
ly vocal critic of our commis-
sioners and their policies.
Recently, she again lambasted
Maguire, going so far as to say
that he has consistently voted
against the Ponte Vedra com-
munity during his term. I
think it is wise,to consider the
source when weighing such
matters. If she is' to be so crit-
ical, perhaps a retrospective
of Ms. Kohnke's position on
some of the issues affecting
our area are in order:
Ms. Kohnke tried very
hard to force Ponte Vedra
Beach and Sawgrass residents.
to pay for the maintenance- of
the Guana Drainage Basin,
which lies between the north-
ern county line and Mickler
Road, despite the fact that
Jacksonville Beach/State Road
A1A and J. Turner Butler
Boulevard all move storm
water into the drainage basin..
Fortunately, the other county
commissioners rightly voted

Many Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD) residents desired to
amend the MSD charter in
order to cap taxes and capital
expenditures. One of the pro-
cedures to accomplish this
amendment process required
the St. ` Johns County
Delegation (state legislators)
to approve the amendment.
This was purely a MSD affair
and had nothing to do with
the county. However,
pressed one of our local legis-
lators not to let the amend-
ment proceed, thus meddling
in MSD politics. Fortunately
for MSD residents, she failed
MSD residents over-
whelmingly opposed the
widening of Solana Road east

sentative, they sought
Commissioner Kohnke's sup-
port on the issue. Instead,
she insisted the project move
forward, even after it was

residents requested reim-
bursemeht for the $3,000 cost
of the new, traffic study.
Commissioner Kohnke voted
against reimbursement but,
gratefully, was out-voted by
her fellow commissioners.
Few would argue that a

desirable than septic systems. Syca
However, not everyone wants

of a sewer system. Ms.
Kohnke was a major player in
forcing homeowners in the
MSD to pay for most of the
cost of constructing their
sewer system, despite the'fact
that she lives on the
Intracoastal Waterway in a'
house with a septic system
and would not be served, by
this new sewer system. I trust
Ms. Kohnke will be as eager to
pay for her own sewer system
when the time comes.
The county, with intense
lobbying by Ms. Kohnke, sold
this new MSD sewer system to
the Jacksonville Electric
Authority (JEA). For this priv-
ilege, the county received a
"franchise fee" of approxi- I A "

Mayor Don Wolfson conceived of the quar-

have been traditionally neglected by City Hall,
or even damaged by governmental actions. I
believe, based upon the remarks of commis-
sioners at the chats, that commissioners now
have a better graspof concerns that are unique
to west Atlantic Beach and its residents. So, it
has been a fair exchange.

Among the bingo bouts held

the most unique is the version

of the proceedings is the win-,
ner's prize. The stakes are
steaks, meaning meat. For
instance, the person who
shouts "bingo!" may be .
awarded a wrapped, presum-
ablytender and tasty cut of

humorous newspaper feature
titled "The Bingville Bugle."
Noting this, a teenage girl he

fondly calling him "Bingo

later dropped, but the name
stuck. (I understand that in

citizens. Every so often, some-
one would yell "Beeengo!"
and come tearing down the
'aisle to claim his or her swag.
Of all the gambling oppor-
tunities that exist in the
United States, I think bingo is
least fraught with chances for
catastrophic loss. How many
game cards can a player moni-
tor simultaneously before
going almost cross-eyed and'
starting to miss numbers?
According to Wikipedia, "The
element of skill in the game is.'
the ability to search one's card

the next number is called." An
added plus the game often
generates charitable funds. So
it's go-go bingo!
The Post 129 competition
calls to mind a gag involving a
man who's walking down a
street with a pig under his
arm. He meets a friend.of his
who asks, "Where did you get
that?" The pig replies, "I won
him playing bingo." (The
porker was apparently ham-
ming it up.)

The Atlantic Beach City
Commission at its meeting
Monday unanimously approved
the request by Beaches Habitat to
construct the expansion.
Funding for the project is being
provided through a grant by one
of Habitat's largest donors, Herb
and MiyuFi Scheidel. In addition
to the $75,000 for the expansion,
the Scheidels have also commit-
ted to a grant for over $2 million
to offer scholarships for students
living in Habitat, housing in
Atlantic Beach and St. Augustine.
That grant is being matched by a
$1.8 million grant from the state,
according to Habitat officials.
Beaches Habitat Director Ralph
Marcello said last week that those
.grants are expected to create five
new scholarships for the
University of North. Florida and
between 30 and 40 new scholar-
ships for FCCJ.
Habitat officials say the the
tutoring program held at the
Jordan Park location and Donner
Park Community, Center has
,grown from about 5 students
since its inception in 2001 to over
40 students this year. And,partici-
pation in the program is expected
to at least double over the next
three, primarily due to new
Habitat homes and and.other
new Atlantic Beach residents.
according to Habitat Ofcials.
The program, intended for any
students has been a joint effort
between the city and Beaches
Habitat, said Atlantic Beach City
Manager Jinl Hanson last week.

Swedish desserts a Taylor specialty
by KATHY NICOLETTI
S wedish native A n i ta
Taylor enjoys cooking so
much that her husband,
Bill, said she's "happiest when
A Ponte Vedra Beach resi-
dent, Taylor likes to have peo-
ple around when she cooks.
She and her husband I ,
designed their kitchen so thaf
Anita could visit with guests
while she.prepares food.
Taylor affectionally calls her
kitchen "Anita's cooking
school," because guests are
always asking her questions
while she cooks.
The Taylors moved to Ponte
Vedra from Berlin, Germany,'
13 years ago, following Bill's
retirement. The couple for-
merly lived in'Miami, where
Anita owned a sportswear
shop. She currently works for
Growing up in Sweden,
Taylor and her siblings helped
with small chores around the
kitchen while their mother
cooked. Taylor didn't serious-
ly begin cooking herself until
she was a newlywed.
While the influence of
Swedish cuisine is evident in
her cooking, Taylor adds new
recipes regularly to her eclec-
tic collection. The Internet,
especially Epicurious.com, is
one of her favorite sources of
Taylor usually begins with a
recipe as a starting.point and
then changes it to suit her
Taylor also likes to bake
desserts and bread. When the
couple's two daughters were
young, she baked bread, usu-
ally Swedish rye, oatmeal, or.
She and her daughters also
baked birthday cakes together
along with countless cookies.
She still has homemade cook-
ies on hand, and for desserts
serves homemade cakes, pies,
or fancy cookies.
For most meals, she and her
husband prefer simple, flavor-
ful preparations of seafood,
meats, and vegetables.
Taylor doesn't fry food, and
the one time she fried chick-
en she said that she would
never do that again.
. Lighter preparations with-
out heavy sauces and limited
use of potatoes and pasta
keep their meals healthy and
not overly high in calories.
Seafood, both fish and
shellfish, is a favorite which
Taylor says is almost easier to
prepare than meats. A recipe
for fish, Mahi Mahi on a Bed
of Spinach with Fennel and
Garlic, is one of her most
This recipe is representative
of the poached or baked
preparation Taylor often uses
for fish. To make this dish,
she cooks fresh mahi mahi
over baby spinach in a wine
broth. The fish is done in a
few minutes' and served with
the spinach along with green
beans flavored with lemon.
' Ginger Carrot Soup is one
of several cold soups that
Taylor prefers to serve instead
of a salad. She admits that
making salads is a little,
tedious to her so instead she
often serves a cold soup for a
refreshing and delicious
change of pace.
The sweetness of the carrots
and orange juice is balanced
by the flavor of the ginger in
Taylor's carrot soup. After
cooking, the soup is blended
until smooth and chilled
before serving garnished with
SAn old family recipe, writ-
ten in Swedish, called. Mama's
Meringue has been one of
Taylor's favorite desserts for
Taylor bakes the sweetened
meringue in a buttered tube
cake pan until it holds
together but is still a little soft
in the center. Slices of the
meringue are served with col-.
orful mixed berries and
homemade whipped cream
flavored with lemonocurd.
Although Taylor prepared
traditional Swedish dishes for
her brother here on a recent
visit from Sweden, she was
surprised when one of his
favorite dishes was Drunken

After serving the Beaches for more than 20 years in
Jacksonville Beach, Rick's Used Cars has moved to a brand-
new location at 1919 Mayport Road in Atlantic Beach and
they want you to stop by and help them celebrate.
"Our grand opening runs through Saturday, Sept. 2, and we
want past, present and future customers to drop in and see our
new facility, have a free hot dog and soft drink and maybe
even win a prize!" said Rick, who along with his wife; Brenda,
owns Rick's Used Cars. Sons Scott and Ricky as well as almost-
family Ronnie are on staff.
Prizes include a beach cruiser bicycle, free gasoline, free oil
changes, free'car detailing and gift certificates. "We're also
offering discounts to our customers who refer friends or new
customers," he said. "We're excited about our, new location,,
and we invite everyone to drop in and help us celebrate!"
Family-owned and operated and well known at the Beaches,
Rick's Used Cars was formerly located at 1404 Beach Blvd. in
Jacksonville Beach. "We purchased this new property a couple :
of years ago and picked this locationbecause we believe in the
Mayport Road corridor," said Rick. "There's only limited unde-
veloped commercial property on this, side of the Ditch, and we
feel that Mayport Road will be the next Beach Boulevard."
Even though their location is new, customers can still count,
on the same top-notch service and reasonable prices they've
come to appreciate from Rick's Used Cars since the company
first opened in Jacksonville Beach on April 1, 1986, at Third
Street anid 14th Avenue South.
"We're a buy here/pay here lot, andwe personally finance
everything we sell," said Rick. "We've retailed probably over
6,00 cars here at the Beaches, arid we've personally financed
5,000 of those cars," he said. '
Rick and Brenda don't sell any of their loans. Instead, they
have developed the criteria for their loan approval and are
able to offer customers a weekly payment schedule.
"We'sell cars that are about five to seven years old to people
who have challenging credit problems," said Brenda. "Because.
we finance the cars ourselves and there's no middle man,
everything is upfront and convenient for our customers."
Rick's Used Cars' customers appreciate this personalized
service and convenience, says Rick. "Of the customers on our
accounts receivable, 70 percent of them have bought three or
four cars from us," he said.
Rick says the biggest draw for repeat customers is the zero-
percent interest Rick's Used Cars has on all their car loans.
"Car'dealerships can charge them up to 28 percent," he said.
"So when they come to us and find out we're not going to
charge interest ever and that the sticker price on a car's wind-
shield is the price they'll pay and that we also finance the sales
tax, they're interested."
Rick explains how it works. "First we ask customers about
their budget and price range and the kind of car they're look-
ing for," he said.. "We're easygoing and customer oriented, and
we're not high-pressure salesmen at all."
Instead, the Staff at Rick's Used Cars is upfront. "All prices
are posted on the windshield," said Rick. "We show you how
much it is, how much you have toput down, the weekly pay-
ment and zero interest with no hidden surprises." Down
payments usually run from $400 to $2,000, depending on the
car,, and the bulk of what they sell is under a thousand dollars,
down payment, he said.
"We verify information from' each customer like who they.
are, where they live, where they work and then check five area
references who know them," he said. "We also require a valid
Florida drivers license and a cash down payment."
Rick's Used Cars then records the title and, once the loan is
paid off, releases the lien. Once a loan is established, weekly
payments can be made by check, money order or cash.
"The whole process can take as little as 30 minutes and then
our customers are driving off the lot." said Brenda. "We'll show
them cars and they'll show us some they're interested in and
then take a test drive and even take the cars someplace else to
get them checked out before purchase." Then Brenda explains
the application and prepares the paperwork for the loan.
"Our payments are as low as $50 and up to $70 a week," said
With the motto "Buy Here, Pay Here," the friendly staff at
family-owned and operated Rick's Used Cars can help you
find a car that matches your needs and budget. Pictured
above are (front row, left to right) owners Brenda and Rick ;
and son Scott and (second row, left to right) son Ricky and
Rick. "Ninety-five percent of our payments are $50 a week,
which translates to $7.39 a day. Youcan hardly ride a bus for
A lot of families need a little second-hand car, Brenda said.
"They don't want to drive to California they want it for
around here," she said. "We sell a lot of second cars to 16 and
17 year olds whose parents get the loans and then the kids
make the weekly payments themselves," she said. "It offers the
kids the chance to be responsible, .and by age 18 they're ready
to step up to a nicer car."
Rick's Used Cars prides itself'on cultivating friends and not
just customers. "We make it convenient for our customers
because we don't want to sell them one car we want to sell
them five cars;" said Rick.
Rick's Used Cars does more than sells cars. They prepare cars
for sale on site. "We have two service bays where we clean and
repair our cars to properly prepare them for sale to the public,"
said Rick. "We try to buy with our customers in mind and
won't knowingly sell cars that have a bad motor or bad trans-
Keeping customers in mind is what Rick's Used Cars is all
about. "There are a lot of good people here at the Beaches -
some of the best people and they deserve to be treated fair-
ly and with respect," said Rick. "Ve appreciate our customers
and treat each one like they just bought a brand-new

Spending Your Building Budget Wisely
You say your avocado-green refrigerator and
orange Formica countertops are looking a bit
dated? What a shame. They matched the orange
shag carpet so well. Fads do come and go.
Fortunately for you, apphances and carpeting are
easily replaced, unlike a home's infrastructure.
Homes are built just like they're run-on a
budget. That budget can be spent in countless
But before you even think about his and her
cosets or a personalized home theater system, be
sure you budget appropriately for the essential
structural elements of your home that are difficult
or impossible to change in the future. There are
three elements that should not be compromised.
Foundations, framing/roofing materials, and win-
dows and'doors are all essential to the long-term
value of your investment.

er, there's more at stake for the homeowner.
Windows and doors provide form and function.
They affect how your home looks, feels.and
operates. They provide natural light that's essen-
tial to our well-being. They can also provide safe-
ty, security and energy efficiency So it's no won-
der that the choices are extensive.
Windows and doors come in many types,
shapes and sizes, with varying maintenance
requirements, energy efficiency features, and a
wide range of materials and pnces. You may be
tempted to save on window quality to splurge
on the latest countertop treatments, but remem-
ber that trendy fashions will quickly lose their
So when it's time to choose windows and
doors, take the time and money necessary to do
1. Research your options. Do your homework
by talking with window dealers, builders and
architects to find out the types of windows they
recommend. Review manufacturer's catalogs and
2. Beware of "bargain" windows. Buy from a
brand-name window manufacturer whose name
you can trust. There are many "no name" com-
panies producing poor quality windows that are
3. Make energy efficiency a. priority. By
researching and understanding glazing options,
you can make smart decisions on the gNass in your
windows. Glazing options are available with sin-
gle, double and triple panes of glass and with Low
E-coated surfaces. Remember, money saved buy-
ing low-quality windows is quickly lost to
increased heating or cooling costs.
4. Select windows that complement .your
home's style. All the pieces of your home should
come together for a unified look. Work with your
architect and builder to select the size, style and
shape of windows that complement the look you
want to achieve.
5. Determine the level of maintenance you prefer.
6. Think big. Light plays a major role in the
home, and big windows-or combinations of
windows-can have a positive impact on your
home. One of today's most popular trends, walls
of windows, can be achieved by mixing an array
of operable windows and fixed glass These
impressive focal points for the home can reach
the ceiling or encompass an entire wall.
7. Dedde if you want custom made windows,
with lots of options, or more standardized win-
8. Research warranties. Your long-term comfort
level in the windows you select will come from

with strong product warranties. Careful) review

three straight games to the

Episcopal 3-1 in the last match
of the tournament.

Jones and Jones-Drew shine in preseason opener
A s the Jacksonville Jaguars
Prepare for their first
A home preseason game
Saturday night against
Carolina, Coach Jack Del Rio
has a lot to mull over, but
maybe a lot to be cheerful
He's not happy about the
way the Jaguars staggered
about like a drinking horse in
the first quarter down in
Miami, but he liked the way
the offense suddenly came to
in the second period when'it
was down 10-zip.
What was going on, fans and
aides alike wondered. How
come the Byron Leftwich
machine was sputtering like an
old Tin Lizzie?
Then the sun shone through
despite the night air, the U.S.
Marines spiritually arrived and:
presto! the Jaguars had come to
and were on the way to a tie
game, thanks to a stadium-
shaking 50-yard play from
Leftwich to Matt Jones on one
of the beautiful pass-catch-runs
the Jags have seen since way
back in the Jiifmy Smith days.
That was followed by a 21-
yard field goal by Seth Marler,
brought back from the Twinlight
Zone to fill in for wounded
If Marler goes down, maybe
they can bring back Mighty
Mouse Mike Hollis, one'of the
early heroes in Jaguars history.
Mike would fit right in with
diminuitive Maurice Drew and
But the first story of the
night, and maybe the biggest
of all, despite the 31-26 victory
over the Dolphins, was the,
long-awaited star flash of the
Arkansas traveler, Matt Jones.
That was the dazzling kind of
catch-and-scoot and dodging
the enemy Jaguars fans have
waited to see since the team
drafted him last year.
Oh, Matthew, what kept you
so long? Minus his golden
locks (some claimed he met a
gal named Delilah and drifted
off to sleep on a date, maybe
that's improved his speed.
After some of the draft duds
in.recent years, it's encouraging
to see Matt Jones turning into
what Wayne Weaver and staff
expected when they opened
the safe to him in the 2005
Del Rio really didn't expect
to play the starters much after
the opening stanza and didn't.
This, as everyone knows, is the
time to test the newcomers
and see what they have to
offer, if anything.
It's also a time to let quarter-
backs David Garrard and
Quinn Gray out of cold stor-
age, massage them back to life
and let them' play with the big
boys. It gets lonesome being
Garrard once again showed
why he would make some
team a valuable starting QB,
passing for 172 yards (6-for-1l)
and two touchdowns. This, of,
course, is only preseason, but
Garrard has proved himself
when filling in for ile injured
SQuinn Gray got the most of
his short tenure, completing
two-of-four and also having a
When they finally got going,
the Jaguars offense looked
about as well as expected, but
it took a while to come to the
The defense, expected to be
ready, was way behind and if it
hadn't been for an offense that
produced three THREE -
touchdown passes of more
than 50 yards, this game would
have gone down me drain.
Ironically, all three of those
passes were divided among the
'Leftwich is in no danger of
losing his job. Heaven forbid.
Mr. Weaver and Coach James
Harris will see to that But it's
comforting to know'there are
understudies who wouldn't be
a disgrace if pushed into play-
And whatever became of
The.entire story Saturday:
night wasn't about Matt Jones
and the lng passes. Vhat
about Maurice Drew, also
known as Maurice Jones-Drew?
He made a dandy reception on:
a Garrard pass and made his
Miami chasers look like turtles
trying to catch the hare, charg-
ing those 55 yards for a score.
They couldn't even catch the
hyphen in.his name, much less
Jones-Drew stands to get just
as much attention and praise
as expected when he was draft-
ed. He carried for 16 yards, in
four trips and returned a kick-
off for 20 yards. Ewen his quote
"I don't have to worry about
the coach behind, me telling
me to move left or right,". he
said. "I'm just out there doing
what I want to do."
If he keels that up, the
coaches won't bother him.
It must have influenced Chad
Owens, the other 5-foot, 7-inch
receiver who scored on a 62-
yarder from Garard. Put them
together and Drew and Owens
could pass for bookends.
The Jags got lucky in Miami.
This week the defense must
also show ip.

races are more than just a lit-

HOT? What is our oldest local
race? In which race do turtles

Florida. And a new event to
help preserve North Florida's
sea turtles, the Turtle Trot,
takes place onLabor Day.

B. Johnson was president of
the U.S. The Vietnam War
was gaining momentum but
w-ouldn't hit full stride until a
few years later. The Beatles, a
band from Liverpool,
England, were setting the
world on fire. Every kid had
to have a guitar and some
long hair. Civil rights and
women's rights were the
issues of the day. Martin
Luther King, Jr. and Robert F.
Kennedy were still alive and
making their voices heard.
Retrospectively, we know
now, it was the calm before
the storm. For not long after-
ward, America would never be
In the summer of '65 a
group of largely high school
runners assembled along
Seminole Beach for a five-
mile race organized by a few
Jacksonville area high school
cross-country coaches: Larry
MNonts, Chuck NlcPhilomy
and Ron Popell.
The race was born out of a
combination of financial need
and common sense. The three
coaches wanted a bit of a pre-
season tune-up prior to the
prep cross-country season and
had grown tired of the long,
expensive trip to South
Florida to find a race. The
obvious occurred to them:
WVh travel to a race when we.
could create our own?
So it was that the first
Beach Run was born.
The first Beach Runs floated
around under different man-
agement until in 1976 a new
organization, the Jacksonville
Track Club, took control of
the event. Not long after-
wards the race saw some very .
impressive attendance num-
Originally the race would
start at one or two o'clock in
the afternoon, the hottest
part of a sweltering August
day. No one ever seemed to
mind the hellish conditions;
it was considered part of.the
Burning sun, melting heat,
and stifling humidity: all just
part and parcel of running
the illustrious, highly compet-
itive Beach Run.
In those days the race was a
straight shot: Five miles from
Hanna Park in Seminole
Beach south to the Lifeguard
Tower in Jackson\ille Beach.
Despite the conditions it was
rather nice. The beach was
full of people urging the
intrepid runners on. It had an
almost carnival-like atmos-
phere. And in five miles you
got to see a lot of beach.
. Today's Beach Run does its
best to avoid those dreadful
conditions. This year's race
will be run at the amiable
time of 6 p.m. The course is
out-and-back from the
Lifeguard Tower in
In the "old days" you
would haye to take a shuttle
bus back to your car left in
Hanna Park. Now you have
your'car close by and you can
stick around for a party the
likes of which never existed
in the past.
