85-ton steel beams to holdup 210 traffic
by KATHY HARTMAN
"Verv hazardous" work
scheduled to begin Monday on
Nocatee Parkway will close
CountI' Road 210 west of the
Intracoastal Waterway for up
to 20 minutes at a time,
according to a St. Johns
County's traffic official.
Road closures have been
planned for times of relatively
light traffic 10 a.m. to 11
a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. -
although lane closures can
occur any time between 10
a.m. and 3 p.m.
For this portion of the proj-
ect, workers will use cranes to
lift eight, 85-ton beams into
place for two closely spaced
bridges being built on the park-
way over 210 .
"The work they're doing is so
hazardous that they didn't
want to do it at night," said
Greg Kennedy, traffic and
transportation manager for St.
The work was to begin today,
but a crane breakdown pushed
the start date to Monday, said
Buckley Williams, project man-
ager for England Thims &
Miller, the engineering firm
overseeing the work.
"Lifting of the beams in
place [will] take place over
a period of time," Williams
said, adding that because of
the "unusually large" girders,
the work is vulnerable to cer-
tain weather conditions.
Even "wind blowing can be
an issue," he said, noting that
the girders, each weighing
170,000 pounds, are 10 feet
Weather and equipment per-
mitting, the project may be
completed "within a three- to
four-week period," Williams
Variable message boards
placed on 210 near U.S. 1 for
westbound traffic and on the
east side of the Intracoastal for
eastbound traffic will alert
drivers to planned closures,
Updates from the engineer-
ing firm also will be posted on
the Ponte Vedra Leader Web
s i t e
Before the road closures
could begin, the developer
"had to notify us. and then we
worked out the restriction of
the times, based on traffic
counts that we have on
record," Kennedy said.
"Nothing starts until 10
a.m.," Kennedy said. "By 10
a.m. most people have arrived
at their destination."
"Motorists should expect
delays and make allowance for
additional travel time or con-
sider using an alternate route
to their destination," says a
news release from St. Johns
County Road 210, the only
east-west passage over the
Intracoastal between Duval

Middle. schools typically
begin at 9 a.m. and end about
3:30 p.m., and high' schools
begin' about 8:30 a.m..and are
dismissed around 3 p.m.
Early release is already prac-
ticed in elementary schools
and it gives teachers extra time
for curriculum, training and
Though talk of early release
began last year, Joyner said
Monday night that the School
District is still studVing
whether early release would be
better than a late start.
Paul Abbatinozzi, director of
school services, said in an
interview Tuesday that several
factors such as transportation
and food services need to be
considered in the decision.
Abbatinozzi said parents and
teachers have raised questions
about how and where students
would spend their time
between early release and any
extracurricular activities they
"We're just looking at all dif-
ferent perspectives and mod,
els," he said, noting that what-
ever the decision is, a late start
or early release will not begin
until the 2007/2008 school
As far as improving commu-
nication between the schools
and parents, Joyner said the
School District is accepting
competitive proposals from
companies to implement a.
t phone notification system for

parents who live in certain

needs a firm date
Shortly after the millennium began, there was talk of cre-
ating an African-American history museum at the Beaches.
In 2001, organizers of the museum secured the land and
building for the site and a former schoolhouse for black
students at the Beaches was moved to the site at 4th
Avenue and 4th Street South.
As recently as this summer, plans were to have the muse-
um open next month in October.
Now, however, the opening has been postponed indefi-
Yet, organizers continue to seek donations of public
According to The Jacksonville Beach Elementary
Preservation Fund, Inc., more than $200,000 has been
spent on the project so far. ,
Five years ago the structure was moved, and nearly a
quarter of a million dollars has been spent on the building
and constructing a 1,100-square-foot annex, but the muse-
um opening date is still uncertain.
Enough work has not been done to get the original four-
room school house and adjacent annex up to current build-
ing code and the last building contractor reportedly pulled
out of the project, organizers report.
We believe.it bears mentioning that the land was donat-
ed for the museum.
It's also worth remembering that the building was donat-
ed for the museum.
Yes, there have been costs associated with moving the
structure, creating the foundation, and installing plumb-
ing, wiring, windows, a security system and much more.
Efforts were also set back when vandals defaced the build-
ing and damaged it.
But we believe that by now the museum opening should
be clearly fixed.
Until the opening date is set and met public
money, such as a $25,000 donation requested from the city
of Atlantic Beach, should not be spent on a project that has
laudable goals, but is taking years to take shape. That
money has been requested as a lump sum to further con-
struction, but the city is leaning toward $5,000 a year for
five years to help with operations.
Organizers of the museum have worked hard to turn a
dream into reality.
But the delays have been numerous and it is time for all
involved including taxpayers whose money has been
spent on the project to demand timely completion of
Public money has been spent on the museum, which is
near and dear to the heart of many, and we would suggest
that a practical, business-like approach is needed to make
sure the museum opens soon.
The head of the museum building committee said last
week that the waiting is hard and being so close is disap-
i We agree, but a"y public money for operations should'
not be granted until it is clear exactly when the museum
will be open for the public to enjoy. We would encourage
all involved, including those officials and other stewards of
the public money invested in the project so far, to make
sure that the museum opening is a definite reality, not just
I a future possibility.
Letters to the editor:
Love and live for -
To the editor:
Atlantic Beach is a great
place to live.
I hope that those who relied
upon the decision of the city
commissioners that we elected
do not get confused as to what
the decision may mean to us.
Government in America is
not going to fail because of the
decision in Atlantic Beach. We
should all believe in the two
party system some we lose,
some we win.
We did not display the sign
"Save Atlantic Beach." Do those
with those signs in their yards
understand what it meant? I
questioned five people and
none had an answer to "What
does that mean?"
Please do not read in that
"the democracy of America" is
questioned by this decision.
We left the decision to protect
our township in the hands of
those we trusted enough to
elect isn't that the right way?
My thinking is love and live
for America. Love and live for
For the disappointed, I sug-
gest you live with the decision
or possibly look for other areas
in which to live where you will

Few bother to vote in election
and fewer understand import
of participating in democracy
Another primary election
was held Sept. 5 in Florida
with very few people bother-
ing to vote. Millions were
spent with little result.
...While the final numbers
are not in, assume that there
, was a 20 percent-turnout of
registered voters. Further
assume that only half of the
people' who can register did,
leaving you with 10 .percent .
of people eligible in .Florida L -I
In order to win you need to FRI
take a majority of that 10 per- GUEST C
cent, or roughly 5.1 percent of
those who are eligible to vote. This is very
Some years ago, in my early races for
,Congress, the primaries were in April and
May., The Democrats felt that having later
elections gave them a political advantage.
T-45 reson was that the Republicans were in
the greatt minority and a Democrat running
did not have to "recognize" a Republican
until after the primary was over. This meant
with the change to .September, that the
Republican "only had two months to cam-
paign, 6r if there was a runoff, one month,
to campaign as a recognized candidate.
Of course, the situation has now reversed,
with the Republicans in the vast majority.
Running for governor was incredibly frus-
trating during the summer. I used to kid
that I would have been better off visiting
the golf courses in North Carolina raising
money, than trying to find enough people
for a fundraiser in Florida. People in the
summer, even with the early start of school,
are much more interested in their vacations
and relaxing, than listening to someone
running for political office.
The low voter turnout .favors the person
with the best name recognition. The
Katherine Harris race was a great example of
that. She had three opponents whose com-
bined votes were more than hers. But, with
the -split vote,. Harris was an easy winner.
Despite all of her problems, she had
statewide name recognition and a number
of loyal Republicans felt that she deserved
the nomination, especially In view of what
she went through in the year 2000.
The second example was the race for the
second most powerful office in the state, the
chief financial officer. State Sen. Tom Lee
ran against State Rep.'Randy Johnson In the
Republican primary. Neither is well known
in the state,. nor. did their messages get
through to many people. However, Lee had
a weapon the early endorsement of
Governor Jeb Bush. Gov. Bush is still popu-
lar and respected. The ads featuring Lee and
Bush made the difference In the campaign.
Most people who didn't know. much about
the job or the candidates decided that if
Bush liked Lee, Lee had to
be all right, and so it was
.; an easy victory for Lee.
The governor's race, as
we predicted, ; was. a
blowout, with State
Attorney Genieral Charlie
Crist winning by over 30
points. Chief Financial
Officer Tom Gallagher,
despite running four times
for governor, never really
got his campaign going.
LOU When it was starting to
EY JR. pick up steam, ethics prob-
OLLIUMNIST lems and personal prob-
lems surfaced and it was
apparent for many months he was going to
lose. The only question was how substan-
tial. It was substantial.
Finally, I did an informal- survey in-
Orange County with voters whom I knew,.
. as4kinglthepn i they voted for judges and, if
Sso,, wvgqq Tle first thing:I foundsi that
-many peopletdidn't vot..For instance, in
the race for governor in Orange County, the
total vote was approximately 80,000. For
county judges, it was 60,000. Of the people
who did vote many told me they had no
idea who they were voting for. Some looked
through the paper for endorsements. Some
called lawyers or fellow lawyers. Some had
seen a campaign brochure and remembered
the name. What was interesting is that some
of the lawyers I talked to had no idea who
some of the people running were.
One wonders if there are changes that
could be made to make the primary voting
more meaningful. It is obvious that having
the most money and/or name recognition is
a major asset that is hard to overcome no
matter when the elections take place. One
wonders if it is possible to limit the election
season.-One wonders if moving the primar-
ies back to April and May before school is
out and most people are at home would be
a help. One wonders if it would be possible
after the primaries are over in May to put a
hiatus on money raising until the fall. One
wonders if having questions on the FCAT
about civics would drive teachers in the
school system to teach more about Florida
To me, the real answer lies. with the young
people. Somehow or other we have to do a
good enough job in educating them, that
they understand that voting is a right and a
responsibility. You wonder how long dur
system can stagger on if a great majority.of
the people don't understand the issues,
don't know the candidates and don't vote.

ee Wal-Mart out of "Copyrighted ateria
Neptune Beach worth the fight Available from Commercial News Providers"
To the editor:
I attended, the Neptune Beach Town
Council meeting Monday, Sept. 11, and like,
other citizens of Neptune Beach I am con-
cerned about the Wal-Mart store that might
come in to our neighborhood. I was Very,
proud to see our council members and
mayor hold hrm in spite of a badgering and
bullying Wal-Mart lawyer. [ would like to.
thank them. Most of the citizens of Neptune'
Beach don't want a WValMart.
The legal argument given by the Wal--Mart
lawyer was that Wal-Mart was not being
treated equally and the council had a quasi-
judicial obligation to rule in their favor in
spite of what their constituents might want.
I have a hard time with the concept that'
our Town Council cannot, for whatever rea-
son, do what is desired by the community
and what is best for the community. This
makes a farce out of democracy.
W\al-Nlart is the largest retailer in America.
It is becoming a monopoly. Monopolies are
bad for our country's economy. Monopolies
:most often are arrogant and insensitive.
.This describes Wal-Maart's attitude towards
Neptune. Beach. They are threatening to sue
our town. This could bankrupt our commu-
nity. Is this good community relations?
Is it worth the fight? Yes. What is happen-
,ing to us is happening to hundreds of small
towns around America. Some have won,
some have lost. But in the spirit of freedom
and democracy, we should fight.
Assistance after bike
To the editor:
We want to.give a heartfelt
thanks to :the unknown ladies
at Sunshine Park Monday
around 11 a.m. for making'the.
911 call after my husband's bad
bicycle accident. My husband
had taken quite a fall off his
bike (while riding with our
dog) onto the sprocket tearing
a huge gaping gash on his leg.
One lady who' saw. the fall
asked immediately if we need-
ed help, and I asked her to call
911. She also moved his bike
out of the entranceway for us.
Another nice lady offered us
water. We sure appreappreciate your
kindness and help!.
Thanks also to the off-duty
officer who responded first, the
many police officers and para-
medics who quickly followed
along with all the staff at
Beaches hospital who were all
wonderful even though they
were having an incredible busy
day in the ER.

Call lhilm Bubba Jr., or.
don't call him at all
One of my oldest friends
from Jacksonville is
Bubba. He was a proud
son of the "Best Side, the IWVest
Side!" 18 and a half years ago,
his wife Shirley Q gave birth
to a fine boy thev named

to be known as Bubba r. to
S, make sure everyone knew he
was his new son's Daddy.
A few years ago, Bubba Jr.,
Shirley Q and Bubba the 3rd
moved to a small rural town
in North Central Florida. At
first they stayed in touch with
my wife, Dianne, and me.
Slowly we just drifted apart,
until last week when Bubba Jr.
"Hovile I am so excited -
right after graduation, Bubba
the 3rd married his high
school sweetheart, Theresa!"
(He paused to make sure I
knew to pronounce the 'H' in
v her name.) "Just wanted you
to know the H ain't silent.
S Now the even better news,
she's having a baby and it's
Gonna be a boy."
After congratulations I told
him how proud I knew he
must be. He then said "My
boy is honoring me with the
new grandson's name!"
"That's great! So now there'll
be a Bubba the 4th."
"No. that's what I figured
he'd name him but they're
gonna call him Bubba I.v. It's
right here on the e-mail my
boy sent me! Clear as day,
Bubba LV. .

that's how you type the 4th in
Roman numerals, with an IV."

ed him to grow up and be a
It was an argument I. could-,
n't win so I asked him how
everything else 'as going.
.Over the next two hours he
filled me in on life in rural
North Central Florida. He told
me about going to an open
house at the biggest home in
town. It was owned by a guy
named Dwayne P Ferguson.-
Old Bubba Jr. described it as a
chateau on a hill
"It so big, it's.known around
here as Stately Dwayne
Manor!" The last thing hle said
on that subject was something
about it being the only triple
wide east, of Panama City.
Next I learned that Bubba Jr.
and his wife had taken it upon
themselves to try and divert
tourists from 1-95 and 1-75 to
"historic" US Highway 17 '
which happens to go through.
Looking for son
Check out our c

informed that there was not
only a KFC in this new bas-
tion of Florida pride, but a
Popeye's as well.
"Yep Hoyle, my wife Shirley
Q has a great way to greet
tourists when they get here.
You know those big fluffy-
looking necklaces Hawaiian
girls put around your neck

"Well anyway my wife has

SFinally BubbaJr. gave me
too much information about

on how many of her necklaces

UF study says insurance impacts real
estate market; could cool condo sales
by CATHY KEN
Florida's vast real estate market and ultimate-
ly the economy of the state are threatened by
spiraling insurance rates, says a University- of
"The entire economy will have.to adjust to
these higher insurance" costs,' said Wayne
Archer, director of UF's Center. for Real Estate
Studies, which recently completed a new quar-
terly survey, of Florida real estate trends. "It's a
big enough hit, just like gas prices, that it will,
ultimately'affect every business and every price
that is property intensive."
The unusually active 2004-05 hurricane sea-
son precipitated the higher rates, and while
these have already struck homeowners and
apartment owners, who are passing Costs on to
tenants by raising rents, commercial tenants
have not been affected yet on a large. scale,
Commercial leases are usually for longer peri-
ods of at least five years, and as these agree-
ments are renewed over the next few years,:
businesses are likely to respond to the cost by
increasing Trents, resulting in their tenants rais-
ing the price of their products, he said.
"The most dramatic increases will be in the
cost of real estate, but consumer prices will also.
go up some, just as rising gas prices put pressure
on costs across the board," he said.
The insurance crisis was identified as the
biggest trend in Florida's real estate market in
the center's new statewide quarterly survey.
-Industry executives, real estate lawyers, market
analysts, title insurers, financial advisers, mar-
ket research economists, real estate scholars and
other experts in the field from around the state
were asked a series of questions by LIF's Survey
Research Center in July. The softening housing
market was the second most mentioned trend.
"The respondents were very conscious that
the housing market is softening," Archer said.
"With inventories of single-family homes build-

begin to happen to prices and sales. They're
even more concerned about condos and think
prices could begin to fall in some cases."
While 69 percent of the survey respondents
expect condo prices to lag behind inflation or
even decline, only 47 percent of the respon-
dents were as pessimistic about single-family
home prices, Archer said. And while nearly 70
percent expect a downturn in absorption rates -
the rate at which properties are able to be leased
or, sold 61 percent expect the same pattern in
single-family housing, he said. .
Condos typically are a more volatile market,
than single-family housing and frequently a
magnet for speculators who have no profes-
sional real estate experience, Archer said.
"Condos seem to be apn easy'.way for fairly
immature investors in real estate to speculate in

said. "Often' they -are naive about when over-

The recent explosion in apartment-to-condo
conversions is beginning to slow and will slack-

to soften, Archer said.
ULnusually low interest rates over the past few
years encouraged many people to buyhomes,
which left a weak market for apartments,
encouraging apartment owners to convert their
'rental units into condos to capture would-be
buyers, he said.
Archer said if a sharp downturn in the hous-
ing market occurs, as some predict, Florida will
be less affec ted by it than other states because of

"Unlike tech stocks, housing has a use, which
means it can't just evaporate." he said. "Even in
the worst cases the prices may go flat, but unless
the project is lust unbelievably poorly con-
ceived and constructed, it won't lose its value."
The highest percentage of survey respondents
was optimistic about the investment outlook
for property in Miami-Dade County, the south-
west coast and in the Lakeland-Winter Haven
area. They were least optimistic about the
Daytona area, Orlando and Tampa-St.

This final installment of the Leader's
"Meet the Deputy" series features
Deputy Jeremy Huddleston, youth
resource officer at Nease High School.
Hudddleston and three other
deputies are each assigned to one of
the four high schools in the St. Johns
County School District.
Under a contract between the School
District and the St. Johns County
Sheriff's Office, one deputy is assigned
to each high school and middle
school. At the elementary level, five
schools share one deputy.
These school resource officers give
classes, counsel students and provide a
sense of security in the schools.
Previous profiles have featured
Deputy Kelly Kemp, youth resource
officer at Ponte Vedra-Palm

Ocean Palms Elementary, and Deputy

Years and places in law enforcement:
"I've only worked for St. Johns County,
five years." He started in 2001.
His philosophy of school policing:
"I just try to educate [students] on the
decisions that they make now, how
they're going to affect them in future,
and to make the right decisions. And
that's the biggest challenge, I would
say, for some, is to get those minds
thinking that way, that what I'm doing
now is setting me up for my future."
What he hopes to accomplish at
Nease: "Just to try to maintain a safe
and secure environment as best I can,
and to assist the principal and the staff
with doing the same."
What parents can do; what parents
should know: "Parents should be as
involved with their child as possible.
Question all their friends; I don't mean
to interrogate, but just follow through.
"If you're told something, don't take
it necessarily at face value, but just be

did not become the public face of grief.

Panthers earn lopsided homecoming win
Nease demonstrates rushing attack
is as formidable as passing game
By ROBERT DeANGELO
Two weeks ago, the Nease
High offense began with 16
straight passes. Last Friday
night against Fleming Island it
was 10 consecutive runs to
begin the ballgame.
On both occasions. the
Panthers rolled to easy victories
there latest a 49-14 pasting of
the Golden Eagles last Friday
night demonstrating they
can once again beat teams by
land or by air. That presents
problems for opposing coaches
watching videotape of Nease:
Which do you defend, the pass
or the run?
And that's exactly the way
Panthers head coach Craig
Howard wants it.
"We always want you to be
unsure what you're going to get
when you come up against us,"
he said. "We want to show we
can run the ball and be physi-
cal or pass the football when
we want to."
In three games this season
Nease has relied on the run to
defeat Memphis University
School, passing to trounce
Sanford Seminole, and the
ground attack to pummel
Fleming Island. Following the
victory over Seminole, Howard
said he is intentionally mixing
"You know last week we had
over 300 yards rushing so we
wanted to come out in this
game and throw a bunch of
high-percentage passes," he
said. "\Ve want to be able to
have balance. We have some
great running backs in Zach
Tronti, Chris Johnson, who is
really explosive, and Ted
[Stachitas] is a running threat."
Against Fleming Island,
Tronti carried the ball 10 times
for 105 yards and two touch-
downs, Johnson had eight car-
ries and 92 yards, and Stachitas
picked up 103 yards on the
ground in 13 attempts. In all,
the Panthers rushed for 312
yards and passed for only 37.
Howard said the goal is to
make opponents defend
Nease's multiple formations
and passing schemes while
worrying about the run.
"I think [our offense] will
evolve as we go on and see
what our guys can do," said
Howard. "What I'm pleased
with is you have to defend a lot
of different things. You have to
worry about a tight end in this
offense now. Last year you did-
n't have to do that."
The tight end is Chris Briggs,
who caught four passes against
Seminole and has become yet
another weapon in the
When thinking of Nease the
focus is usually on offense, but
this season the team's defense
is also playing a prominent
role. While the Panthers
pounded Fleming Island with a
relentless rushing attack, the
turning point of last Friday
night's game was a spectacular
return for a
touchdown by ------..----

"He's a really good natural

Danny C6owgill said of Grant
following the Sanford game.
"We just had to teach him the
schemes. He's a real bright
young man. It was like putting
a fish in the water."
It was the second straight
week Grant had an intercep-
tion return for a touchdown.
That made it a 20-0 Panthers
lead and the rout was on.

Gators on the rise, Seminoles sinking quickly
N o matter what the vari-
ous factions of the
Florida Gator boosters,
say, it's becoming apparent
from the Tennessee exhibi-
tion, that coach Urban Meyer
will use a double-barrel offen-
sive attack this season.
The QB pair used it for a 21-
20 comeback win.. ,
After their disposal of the
Rocky Top Volunteers
Saturday night, unless drastic
injuries occur, veteran quarter-
back Chris Leak has proved
again why he.is still too valu-
able to discard in favor of
youth. And rookie Tim Tebow
has shown he is not to be
shoved out of the way simply
because his beard is still fuzzy.
To beat their hated rival in
Knoxville is one thing, to:
come from behind and defeat,
the Vols in their raucous, lair is
something else. Coach Mcyer'
may have brought some fancy,
plays and philosophy from
Utah, but it's doubtful that,
trick was in his black bag.
The QB twins didn't wait
long for their act. Meyer sent
Tebow into action on Florida's
second drive of the night. The
Gators were facing a second
and two at the Tennessee 31-
yard line. ,
' Is this any way for a boy to'
lose his innocence? But sonny,
boy was equal to the task.
Tebow took the shotgun offer-
ing and went right up the
middle for 10-yard gain with-
out so much as a wink to his
Leak used that inspiration to
fire a 21-yard TD pass to
Jemalle Cornelius and the
Gators led, 7-0.

tell you, "It's easy when you-
Actually, it was far from
easy. Leak did his part, firing
three touchdown passes, but
the defense allowed the Vols
to gain a 17-7 lead in the third
But, as the old saw used to
say, "When the going gets
tough, the tough get going."
The Gators got going, but it
was almost too late. When
they were down, 20-14 in the

blacker than a coal-miner's
laundry, the Vols were lulled
