After listening to strong comments of oppo-
sition from about 15 residents Tuesday, St.
Johns County commissioners unanimously
decided that a 150-foot telecommunications
tower should not be built off Roscoe
The tower had been denied by the St. Johns
County Planning and Zoning Agency (PZA),
and that denial was appealed to the County
Commissioners found that the tower, which
was proposed to be built a parcel at Lord of
Life Lutheran Church, would not fit with the
mostly residential neighborhood.
And commissioners were not convinced of a
clear need for the tower, despite an apparent
gap in service for certain cellular companies.
"Certainly this is a unique area where the
people value the scenic qualities of this com-
munity," Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson said
in the. meeting.
William Rand of Ponte Vedra, owner of
Verticality, the company proposing to build
the tower, was appealing the June decision by
the PZ. to deny the structure.
The PZA decided not to grant Rand a waiver
for a 250-foot setback requirement that would
have been necessary to build the tower.
In an extensive presentation Tuesday, Rand
.showed county commissioners dozens of pic-.
tures that helped demonstrate how visible the
tower would be.
Rand took photos from several different
neighborhoods of a large balloon 150 feet in
the air at the location of the proposed tower.
Rand told commissioners that the trees

NB claims 'sham' in Wal-Mart property case
Fallacious, sham, phantasm
and red herrings are just some of
the terms that Neptune Beach's
city attorney used this week in a
response to a property owner's
request for relief.
Lakeshore Village is a Georgia-
based general partnership that
owns a 15-acre tract at 600
Atlantic Boulevard, where a
Wal-Mart superstore has been
proposed and rebuffed. The
firm has previously filed a
request for relief with the city,
arguing that it should be grant-
ed either permission for Wal-
Mart to build or be awarded
damages of $40 rrullion, claim-
ing the cited unfairly denied it
the right to use its property.
"Lakeshore has attempted,
through intimidation and mis-
representation, to create the pic-
ture of the property owner who
can't use its property," City
Attorney Chris White said in an
11-page response. "This is a
phantasm, Instead, we should
behold the property owner who
inflicts injury upon itself and
who accusingly points his finger
White said that the property
owner created a "dying retail
center" and "systematically
emptied" the center of ablee
tenants for the sole purpose of
having Wal-Mart on the proper-
ty. Lakeshore "eviscerated" itself
by driving out the tenants and
the city acted within its rights,
On a separate issue, White
said the reason that the devel-
opment was required to secure a
concurrency certificate is simple
- because it is the law. He noted
that when the property owner
was advised that it needed to
submit an application for the
certificate, the city discovered
that there may have been previ-
ous developments when, "for
reasons which are unknown at
this time," the requirement was
The city immediately began
requiring all developments not
exempt from concurrency
requirements to complete an
application, White said.
Lakeshore's contention that it
did not have to apply because
the city failed to follow proce-
dure on-others is a "misplaced
rationale," White said.
"Of course this interpretation
by Lakeshore certainly dove-
tails with its original intention
and desire not to address con-
currency... Lakeshore's interpre-
tation and suggestions for the
above is fallacious and without
any basis in law or fact," White
He also noted that a traffic
impact analysis provided the
city by the owner was "nothing
short of a sham." The two-page
analysis contained "self-serving
numbers" and was "at the very
least, form without substance."
White said that a traffic
study requested by the city did
not target Lakeshore, but was
triggered by- city code that
requires any project generating
500 or more trips a day to pro-
vide a traffic study. H' also
noted that "Lakeshore was con-
sistently reticent to discuss the
traffic concurrency" and to
submit information to the city
White alsb responded to the
owner's assertion that
Councilor John Weldon's com-'
ments about Wal-Mart were
inappropriate. Weldon had
introduced an ordinance ban-
ning "Big Box stores" and was a
vocal opponent during public
"There were no predetermi-
nations on the part of any
councilor that resulted in any
denial of due process to
Lakeshore," White said.
The response is expected to
be part of a Special Magistrates
hearing on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
The hearing will be held at the
Florida Coastal School of Law,
with an evening session
planned at Neptune Beach City
Hall. The special magistrate,
agreed to by both parties, will
be paid $250 an hour to medi-
ate the dispute, but the final
recommendation is not bind-
ing. Both sides will split the
White maintained in his
response that the city has com-
plied with its codes, land use
plan and state law.

Starbucks literate and loyal customer base seemed to make a
lot of sense," DiGenti said. "We have some excellent pub-

Measure would amend charter
by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
Voters in Atlantic Beach will have the
opportunity Nov. 7 to consider an amend-_
ment to the city's charter that would estab-
lish a 35-foot building height limit, according
to a media release from the city of Atlantic
Q: What are the details of the
A: Voters will consider an amendment to
the city's charter, which would establish a 35-
foot building height limit on Nov. 7, 2006.
Q: What is the purpose of a city
A:. A city charter allows local governments
to operate in accordance with the constitu-
tional laws of the state of Florida as well as
specific provisions in the charter.
Q: What is the difference between
a regular amendment and a city
A: Atlantic Beach has had an amendment
which limits building height to 35-feet,
according to the city's zoning regulations and
Comprehensive Plan. However, these restric-
tions could be changed by the vote of a city
commission. If the city charter amendment
was established, it could only be amended by.
an action of the voters or the state legislature.
Q: Is there any opposition to the
city's charter amendment?
A: C u rrently there are no organized groups
against the city charter amendment.
Q: Why is this amendment being
considered for the city's charter?
A: This amendment is being considered as
a response to the high-rise condos that have
been built elsewhere at the Beaches, mainly
'in Jacksonville Beach, where voters amended
that city's charter to ban new projects over 35
feet in height.
Q: Are \ any exceptions to the
A: Chimneys on residential buildings and
exterior architectural elements, such as decks
and porches on non-residential buildings are
now permitted with specific approval of the
city commission. The amendment would
allow existing buildings to be rebuilt to their
existing height. However, the Sea Turtle Inn
is the only building that currently exceeds
the 35-foot height limit. Because .of its inte-
gral role in the community, a single excep-
tion to the height limit is proposed in the
charter amendment specific to the hotel

St. Johns County Tax Collector
S Tax Bills Are Coming!
2006 Tax Roll Totals $386,122,236.76
ST. AUGUSTINE Beginning Wednesday, November 1st St. Johns County property owners can expect to find
their tax bills in the mailbox as the. 2006 tax season kicks off. This includes bills for real estate, tangible personal
property, railroad, and non ad-valorem assessments.
Total taxes to be collected are $386,122,236.76. This is an increase of $74 million compared to the 2005 tax roll
of $311,678,008.75. Historically, as the population of St. Johns County has grown, likewise the tax roll has
increased. "St. Johns County has e.\perienced significant growth o'er the past two decades that I have served the
residents as Tax Collector," Hollingsworth noted. "'As a direct result, the tax roll has increased to accommodate
the increased need for services provided by the various taxing authorities."
Although all tax bills become due Nov. 1, 2006, they are payable through March 31, 2007 Without
incurring a penalty.
"Residents have the opportunity to pay their tax bills over the next several months, but the greatest savings can be
realized by those residents who opt to pay their bills in November when they can get a 4 percent discount," said
St. Johns County Tax Collector Dennis W. Hollingsworth.
There are various methods of payment available to St. Johns County residents. The most popular method is the .
U.S. mail. Simply place your tax bill and payment in the return envelope enclosed with your bill; stamp and
For those who would rather pay their bill from home, the Tax Collector's Office offers an online
payment service to residents with Internet access and a credit card, Access the St. Johns County Tax Collector
website at www.sjctax.us and follow the prompts for payment. Please note that a convenience fee is associated
with this service, however, this office does not retain any portion of this fee.
Although it is too late for the 2006 tax year, Florida Statute 197 allows taxpayers to prepay their taxes on an
alternative installment payment plan for each tax notice with taxes estimated to be more than $100.00. If you
wish to apply for the Installment Plan method for the 2007 tax year; application must be made with the Tax
Collector's office prior to May 1, 2007, and the first payment must be made no later than June 30,-2007. No other
provisions in the law allows for partial payments.
Additionally, 31,714 notices were sent to mortgage companies with Escrow Accounts totaling $118,378,603.79.
If you have an escrow account, you should be receiving an informational "only" notice detailing your tax status
and indicating DO NOT PAY-TO BE PAID BY MORTGAGE COMPANY
For the past 17 years, your tax collector's office has maintained a 99.1 percent or greater collection rate.
Ultimately, this assists all local taxing authorities to finance services for the citizens' needs at very low interest
rates. The bonding agencies tie the collection rate of ad valorem taxes directly to the funding source.

There is a pending and

there was a stabbing at the

When I call the police I get a

have moved on... they.know
how the system works and they
move from hiding place to hid-

Call for action:
li First- and immediately, I
believe if the police are called
out to identify someone -or a
group of transients whom are
hiding or camping in vacant
areas, I believe we need to iden-
tify, fingerprint and have a full
police investigation why any
people are repeatedly hiding in
our neighborhoods... I heard
the city is reporting child
molesters who reside next to

sients? And repeat transients?

In the case of St. Johns County the "reform"
maintained at-large elections but created a

If Tears Could Build a Stairway
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to heaven
and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say "Goodbye".,
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God Knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow,
What it. meant to love you-
No one can ever know. .
But now I know you want me
to rnfoutn for you no more;.
To re member all thq happy'lm.
ife still 6as much min store
Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today-
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.,

today after spending a few
days at his parents' home in
Marsh Landing, helping get

Every year for the past 14
Halloweens, he has helped
transform the St. Andrews
Court home to one that
attracts up to 500 trick-or-
treaters, many of whom con-
tribute to charities for foster
children during their visit.
Away from home, the
Nease High School graduate
has been doing another kind'
of tinkering, one that may
help the elderly, the infirm
and their caregivers.
The following question-
and-answer session took
place Monday during a break
What year did you gradu-.
ate from Nease?
And since then you've
been at Georgia Tech,
Your major is, what?
You had a job .
Explain how that works
with your studies.
I participated in Georgia ,.
Tech's co-op program. .-. I
started working for Rohm'
Electronics, and for them, I
go in every other semester
and work normal 40-hour
weeks and get experience in
the electric engineering field.
Next semester is my final
What does Rohm do?
They are a semiconductor
manufacturer, based in
Do you think that your
education at Nease pre-
pared you for this?
Education, yes. Preparing
me for course load and how
-to prepare as well .Fm
sure IB [International '
Baccalaureate] would have
made me better prepared for
how to handle college class-
es .... Actually having to
put forth effort every day to
stay on top of classes.
I understand you might
be offered a couple jobs:
one with Rohm and one
relating to your senior proj-
What can you tell me
about your senior project?
For double E [electrical
engineering] your final year
you take senior design from
whatever professor you're
assigned to. My project
dealt specifically with mak-
ing a computer to assist peo-
ple that are restricted to bed
This computer can control
lights, AC, can answer phone
calls, you can send video e-
mail, watch TV, listen to the
radio, everything from the
computer, all through voice
activation. So older people
who might not really under-
stand how to use a computer
can just say what they want,
and it does it.
And is it built into a hos-
pital bed, or a chair ...?
ten unaerneathn mthe beu.
There is another computer
that goes along with it that
is for hospital use, that also
monitors people falling out
of the bed, or can send calls
to the nurse constant
monitoring of wet sheets or
bed sores or anything that
the patient might need.
' The bed itself has sensors
built into it to monitor'the
patient's position. If there
are any sores that are open,
it'll detect that automatical-
It'll watch for tracking on
the floor, so if the patient
steps off and walks around,
it will track that. Every
patient will have an RFID tag
so they can be found any-
where in the hospital.
RFID. Is that like a GPS
Right. Radio Frequency
Identification .... The main
thing the hospital side was
working on is if a person
falls over, they'll be able to
detect that since falls in hos-
pitals are a very big problem.
That was the main purpose
of the hospital side of the
How did you come up
with the project?
The professor I had .. is
geared toward the medical
engineering side of electrical
engineering, so we took one
of his projects he already
had in development and
continued working on it.
I understand that what-
ever company is interested
in that said, 'I want the
team that developed that,'
I here's a company danu a
couple hospitals that are
interested in the project, and
supposedly the company
would be hiring the main
group that worked on the
project, which included
myself and three others.
And can you say what
the name of that company
No: I can't say.
Is there a patent pend-
There's already proof of
concept patents so the
idea is already reserved.
When will you be gradu-
Do you have any prefer-
ence about what work you
want to do?
No real preference at the
moment.... I may be going
to Japan for a few months.
Well, just to see the coun-
try, but additionally, maybe
with Rohm if I get that job
offer .. '
IfTdo take the job from
my senior design. I'd stay
in Atlanta to research it, but
if'I take a job from my co-op
company, I'd be in one of
four places . One of the
positions is working in Japan
half the year and the U.S.
half the year.

the job I'm really hoping for.

the country's unique history,
he said. The people who set-

were horsemen who came
from the east. Hungarian food
is generally spicy and meat is

Recipes for Hungarian dish-

the seasonings is important. If
the seasonings are added at
the appropriate time, the fla-

A clean break from a, bad
marriage is actually better for
the couple's school-age daugh-
ters than a troubled union, a
new University of Florida
Contrary to the expectation
that marriage is always good
for children while divorce is
bad, the study found that the
schoolwork of girls whose par-
ents split up is better than that
of girls who live with a mom
and dad who don't get along,
said Mark Hoekstra, who did
the research for his doctoral
dissertation in economics at
"There is no question, as I
and other researchers find, that
boys and girls from two-parent
intact families perform better
academically than boys and
girls whose parents divorced,"
Hoekstra said. "But I was sur-
prised to learn that girls whose-
parents divorced do better in
school than girls from similar-
Iy troubled families whose par-
ents went to the brink of
divorce but remained married."
In the study, girls between
first- and lO0th-grades whose
parents divorced scored an
average of slightly more than
eight points higher on stan-
dardized reading and mathe-
matics tests than girls whose
parents filed for divorce but
later requested the case be dis-
missed. These differences per-'
sisted four years after the
divorce, he said.
No academic differences
were found for boys, although
they did experience a short-
term increase in disciplinary
problems immediately after
divorce that did not last
beyond three years, said
Hoekstra, who is now an eco-
nomics professor at the
University of Pittsburgh.
One possible reason girls in
.'jafrilies with troibld'4 itnb'-
riages are more likel.to' V.li0
ence academic problems is that
they may be more adversely
affected by conflict, he said.
The opportunity for girls to
have a closer relationship with
their mothers when parents
divorce may also explain their
,stronger academic peiform-
ance, Hoekstra said. "Since in
most cases mothers have pri-'
mary custody, there may be a
mother-daughter bond that
forms as a result of a divorce
that daughters respond to in a
positive way compared to what
would have happened if the
parents had remained mar-
ried," he said.
The results have' important
implications for divorce reform
initiatives that have gained
popularity recently because of
concerns. about the effects of
divorce on children, Hoekstra
said. Since 1996 at least eight
states have considered legisla-
tioni that would make it more
difficult. for parents to. end
their marriage by limiting
grounds for divorce and requir-
ing pre-divorce counseling, he
"My' research suggests that
policy-makers ought to be less
concerned with whether or not
parents legally dissolve their
marriages and more concerned
with helping them overcome
the types of problems that
cause them to contemplate
divorce in the first place,"
Hoekstra said. "Unless the
intervention can resolve the
issues that got the family to
the point of considering
divorce, it will result in consid-
erably lower academic achieve-.
ment for the daughters
Discipline is the issue with
boys, Hoekstra said. "There has
been some research suggesting
that when boys lack a male
role model in the home, which
often happens after a divorce,
they may be more affected
than their sisters and act up,
but my. study shows that the
effects are riot permanent," he
In Alachua County, Florida,
Hoekstra studied detailed stu-
dent records-on behavior and
standardized test scores, as well
as divorce records, from 1993
to 2003. By matching divorce
records to student records, he
was able to identify 690 stu-
dents whose parents divorced
and 111 students whose par-
ents filed for divorce but later
withdrew from the process.
"The typical approach used
by other studies is to compare
children whose parents
divorced to children in tradi-
tional two-parent families," he
said. "The problem is that it's
hard to 'control- forth fdiffet- :
. enices-between these two types'
of families to ensure that
you're not picking up all the.
things that cause the parents
to divorce rather than the
effect of the divorce itself."
The'increased incidence of
divorce in American families is
one of the most significant
social trends of the 20th centih-
ry, as more than 1 million chil-
dren experience divorce every
year, Hoekstra said.
The number of divorces per
1,000 married women 15 and
older more than doubled from
9.2: in 1960 to 19.5 in 1996,
and demographers project that
if current rates continue, about
50 percent of recent first mar-
riages will end in divorce, he

Educating Nliko Salon's guests and staff is Carolyn's

cited for arts contribution
by CHUCK ADAMS
John Thomas has 50-plus years of musical
experience and displays his piano wizardry
at Shelby's Coffee Shop in Neptune Beach
every Sunday. It's a gig the 72-year-old has
had for five-plus years.
".All these years you learn songs, you
learn styles," said Thomas, who will be rec-
ognized this week for his musical stylings.
"He's absolutely the best keyboardist in
Florida," regular listener Mary MacEnulty of
Jacksonville Beach said at Shelby's, where
Thomas performs.Sundays from 10 a.m. to
Jazz Hall of Famer Teddy Washington
agrees with MfacEnulty.
When Washington brings the second
annual Jacksonville Follies Awards to the
Florida Theatre Thursday, his list of 14 hon-
orees includes Thomas, who has lived at the
Beach two different times. His first stay was
for three years in the 1970s, the second, and
current, run that began nine years ago.
"It's been a grand experience," said
Thomas, a native of Wilmington, N.C.
"I sort of hinted to Shelby, when she
moved into this new facility, 'You really
need some music in that place. You need a
piano.' I think that sparked the germ of an
idea in her mind."
"This December will be our sixth year
here," said Thomas, who added he consid-
ers himself a broadcaster first, then a musi-
"Broadcasting has always been my forte,"
said Thomas. "I started in radio when I was
a sophomore in high school, doing a
teenage radio show in my little home-
Thomas' broadcasting career included
time at Channel 4 VWJXT and he went to
Tallahassee in 1983, where he covered the
legislature for Florida's Public Broadcasting
Network. He returned to the Beaches in
1997 in "sort of a semi-retirement."
Thomas said he started playing the piano
when he was 17.
"In high school I was in the mixed cho-
rus, didn't know a piano from an oboe -
and really didn't care. But I'd watch our
director play as he was accompanying us.
S One day, as brash 17-year-olds will do, I
said, "I think I can do that.' And sure
enough, I found I had some kind of ability
that had come to me from somewhere."
From that point forward, Thomas taught
himself. The piano he started with was in a
small church two blocks from his home.
"I'd get off the school bus every after-'
noon and make a beeline for that church.
I'd sit there and try to learn to play that
piano. My mother would drag me out at 8
p.m. to get my homework done.
"My really formal training was by myself
in that little church. It's a matter. I think, of
I've been blessed with a good ear."
Thomas spent his early days in radio
"I was listening to all the greats: Sinatra,
the Basie Band, the Ellington Band. All
these things seem to have become

Thomas has never really considered him-
self a career musician "because I've never
relied on it as fulltime employment. It's
been more or less a fun thing, and fortu-
nately a thing that you could earn some
additional income from.
"And so I've done it, in a professional
sense, in that regard. But it's always been in
the background, in the shadow of the
broadcasting career and effort."
Thomas started playing by himself, then
added a bass player and drummer.

Stachitais on target in Panthers rout
wi 0 .t.e ou
Pnolo by ROB DNANGELO
Nease High quarterback Ted Stachitas is a threat on the ground, as pictured here against Bolles
in the Panthers' preseason kickoff classic, and through the air as he proved in last Friday night's
49-0 road victory over Middleburg. The Panthers are a win away from a perfect regular season.
By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
Ted Stachitas may not be the
area's passing leader, but he's
definitely one of the area's
most efficient ones.
Heading into Friday's regu-
lar-season finale with Bartram
Trail High, the Nease High jun-
ior has completed 64 percent
of his passes this season with
only three interceptions in 134
Last Friday against district
rival Middleburg, Stachitas
logged a nearly perfect passing
outing, going 12 of 15 for 197
yards and four touchdowns in
a 49-0 victory on the road.
Two of his three incomple-
tions were dropped balls. His
third was a tipped ball that
"The incompletions were
underthrown balls and on the
interception the defense made
a great play and tipped it,"
Stachitas explained after the
win, which raised Nease's
record to 9-0 and 4-0 in
"Whether I throw two passes
or 50, I want to be 100 percent
all the time. I almost had it
tonight, but I threw a couple of
Stachitas should not be so
He completed his first 10
passes for the game, before
McLaughlin tipped and recov-
ered a first-down pass intended
for tight end Chris Briggs.
On Nease's next possession,
Stachitas hit receiver Quinton
Huggins in the hands at the
goal line, but the pass was
On third-and-20, Huggins
also dropped a Stachitas pass in
the end zone.
On the next play, Stachitas
scrambled right, then left and
found receiver Christian
Denrns (five receptions, 106
yards) in the left corner of the
end zone for a 20-yard TD pass
on fourth down.
Dennis' TD was Nease's
fourth scoring strike of the first
half. Stachitas also connected
on TD throws of 29, 36 and 7
yards to Graham Bates,
Huggins and Collins Lee,
"He started out 10-for-lO and
threw touchdowns to all four
starting wide receivers," said
Nease head coach Craig
Howard after the game.
"He was so mad [when he
threw the interception]. He
had a nice read on it, but the
kid from Middleburg made a
Whether I throw two
passes or 50, I want to
be 100 percent all the
time. I almost had it
tonight, but I threw a
couple of lbad passes.
Through nine games,
Stachitas is 86 of 134 passing
for 1,263 yards and 18 TDs.
Before Friday, he hadn't thrown
an interception since Sept. 15
against Fleming Island. He also
threw a pick in a Sept. 8 road
win at Sanford Seminole.
That pass was also tipped.
Nease did not attempt a pass
in the second half against
Middleburg (2-7, 0-4).
"And we knew we.wouldn't,"
added Howard, whose district
championship team is shoot-
ing for the school's first 10-0
season since 1992.
"I wanted our guys to get an

ning all the time. You want to
keep your opponent guessing."
Nease poured on the points
in the second half, beginning
with a 30-yard interception
return for a score by senior
Jason Grant to open the third
quarter. The pick was Grant's
seventh of the season and third
taken to the house.
Freshman slotback Chris
Johnson added a twisting 19-
yard TD run midway through
the third quarter and sernor
Zach Tronti capped the scoring
on a 7-yard blast with 4:10 to
play in the fourth.
Tronti rushed for 101 yards
on 14 carries and eclipsed the
1,000-yard mark for the season.
He also caught two passes for
54 yards and threw a 42-yard
pass to Dennis to open the
Stachitas completed passes to
sLx different receivers and
rushed for 24 second-half
Nease's defense held the host
Broncos to 15 first-half yards
and 77 passing yards for the
game. Middleburg's longest
play from scrimmage was a 19-
yard hook-and-ladder to end
the first half.
"We knew we could come
out and throw it around on
them," added Stachitas, who is
also Nease's second-leading
rusher with 565 yards and
"The receivers made great
catches and the O-line made
great blocks. The passes were
there all night. In the second
half, we wanted to run the ball
and get Tronti his 1,000 yards."
Now, Nease turns its atten-
tion to county rival Bartram,
which also sports a run-and-
gun quarterback, a topline
defense and back-to-back dis-
trict titles, just like the
Nease beat Bartram 7-6 in
2005. The Bears (8-1, 4-01 are
bidding for the school's first 9-
1 regular season. Both teams
are at home next week for the
first round of the state playoffs.
"They have a lot of confi-
dence and so do we," added
Stachitas, who sat out last
year's game with an injury.
"It'll be a great matchup. We
want to go 10-0. That's what
we're going to try for."
Nease High's girls volleyball
team finally overcame
Orlando's Bishop Moore for
the first time in four years -
to advance to the quarterfinal
round of the state playoffs.
The Panthers' 24-26, 25-20,
25-16, 25-23 victory means
Nease will host Thursday
night's regional final against
Groveland South Lake begin-
ning at 7 p.m. At i.take is a
berth is the state's final four.
Meghan Sherman led the
Panthers with 46 assists, 21
points, five kills, 12 digs and
three blocks. Paige DePriest
added 14 points, 13 kills and
13 digs for Nease (23-6).
Middle blocker Christina
Vergo had a season-high 15
kills, while Laura Phillips
helped seal the win with 10
Barden added 11 points and
10 digs Tara Carrigan con-
tributed with 20 points and
six kills, while Cierra Pillsbury
chipped in with 17 points and
20 digs. '
Defeating the Hprnets on
their home court was particu-
larly satisfying for Nease
which had been eliminated
from postseason play by
Bishop Moore three straight
times. Perhaps the most heart-
breaking loss came in last
year's regional final where the
Hornets prevailed in four close
If the Panthers win
Thursday, it will mark the sec-

r -ne pompano nsnermen
S were. all smiles last week as
L they returned from
Nassau Sound. The first good
bite had anglers anchored all
along the mouth of the Sound.
Good catches of sheepshead
came off the jetties when the
weather permitted. Flounder
and trout to four pounds are
coming out of the feeder creeks.
Captains David King and
Mike Morris on the "Crusty
Crab" probably had the Week's
most impressive pompano
catches. On Wednesday and
Sunday, these veteran anglers
filled.their coolers with pom-
pano weighing up to three
pounds and big whiting from
On Tuesday, Mike and David
tried the jetties and pulled up
22 big, fat sheepshead.
The "Early Times" was also
spotted at Nassau Sound last
week. Captains Butch Garvin,
Dennis Young and Rick and
Jack Ryals were using clams for
bait and caught 20 pompano
weighing up to four pounds, as
well as a dozen whiting.
Austin Ryan reports that the
trout fishing has been good from
the Indian Woods Bridge. If the,
tide has started out when he gets
home from school, Austin some-
times uses artificial to catch his
limit of speckled trout.
Mark Goodwin has been fish-
ing the same creek, as well as
others, out of his kayak to catch
redbass and speckled trout.
Dwight Hibbard fished last
Wednesday with canal guide
John Dyrssen and they caught
five trout to five pounds, two
mangroves and a dozen lady-
fish. On Friday, John and Tad
Williams caught 10 speckled
trout in the creek near
Sean Bonting and Ben
Demaio used finger mullet near
the docks in Mayport to catch
- Al Wiltshire, Don Sutton, Jim
Bell and John Burroughs used ,
live mullet from the bank along
Nassau Sound last Wednesday
and Thursday and caught 35
speckled trout, a pair of floun-
der, 17 blues and a redbass.
Some of the trout were too
small to keep, but it was two
days of exciting fishing.
George Atelevich put his fin-
ger mullet along the river bank
not far from the ferry slip and
caught 19 flounder.

Tebow, Jackson used sparingly in Gators' win
Pholo' b ROB DeoAGELO
Florida Gators freshman quarterback Tim Tebow, left, absorbs a hit from Bulldogs linebacker Tra
Battle during last Saturday's game. Tebow rushed for 36 yards on six carries against Georgia.
Hard to figure out which
aguars team ,s real one
' : ". .: : :- ., : : .: -
S unday al Alltel arena,
S Jaguars fans will eagerly
await the answer to their,
biggest question. The question
is not Who will start at quar-
terback, but rather Which
J, aguars team will show up?
The one that literally con-
trolled the Philadelphia Eagles,
13:6, Sunday, or the one6 tha"
showed nothing the week
before in Houston. That's the
same team, by the way, that
gave in to Washington and
The Jacksonville team that
topped the Eagles was the one
that entertained Dallas,
Pittsburgh and the New York
Jets all Jaguars victories.
These entertaining and
interchangeable teams are set-
ting records in Jaguars history.
Love 'em or hate 'em, who
The only thing that looked
familiar Sunday up in Philly
the city of brotherly indif-
ference, as one native put it -
was the runaway performance
of good, old Fred Taylor who
dashed through the Eagles like
a dose of salts.
That, plus frequent flashes
of old-time defense, took us
back to the days when the
Jaguars were tougher than a
fifty-cent steak. ,
The big story, of course, was
David Garrard returning to
quarterback for the first time
since last year's stretch run.
Garrard replaced Byron
Leftwich, Who is out with a
strange ankle ailment.
Garrard piked up where he
left off last season, rushing ,
eight -times for 36 yards, trail-
ing only Taylor and Maurice
. :, '. ., !';i .?.
Jones-Drew, and connecting
on 8-of-17 passes.
That was marvelous enough,
but on.a day windy enough to
blow Jones-Drew off Lincoln
Financial Field, Matt Jones
came back to form. Rumors of.
his demise have been greatly
exaggerated, it seems.
Next up: The Titans.
Gators win keeps team
on track for SEC
A strange finish to a strange
game Saturday at Alltel left the
Florida Gators in good shape
to challenge for the SEC title.
Arid even in defeat, the
Georgia Bulldogs found some
hope for improvement.,
When the Gators jumped
out to a first-quarter lead on a
12-yard TD run by Andre. i
Caldwell, some Georgia fans
might, have thought they were
in for another day of humiliat-
ing defeat, as they've been in
eight of the last nine games'
In the next two quarters,
when UF built a 21--0 lead via
touchdowns by Caldwell
again, this time on a 40-yard
TD catch from QB Chris Leak,
then a fumble recovery for a
nine-yard score by Ray
McDonald, the situation fbr
the Dogs looked hopeless. .
By the Boys from Athens
hitched up their pants and
went to work for their fresh-
man quarterback, Matthew
Stafford. They opened the
gates for Stafford to score on a
13-yard romp, capping a 52-
.yard drive that finally put the
Red and Black on the score-
If the Dogs Were running
out of steam it didn't show.
Kregg Lumpkin barreled over .
for an eight-yard TD set up
when. Georgia recovered a
fumble by Gators freshman
QB Tim Tebow.
That's the same Tebow, by
the way, that will be running
a true version of head coach
Urban Meyer's spread-option
'offense in years to come. It's
what Gator fans have been
clamoring for-let's see'if
they like it when they get it.
The game ended with a 21-
14 victory for UF, but the fight
Georgia put up to the end ,
,encouraged Dogs head coach
"Somehow they found the
[gas] to keep going," Richt
said. "We were disappointed
in losing, but with all the boys
we have out with injuries,
they did a fine defensive job."
The Gators face a surprising-
ly strong Vanderbilt team this
week and must win to keep
national title hopes alive.
By ROBERT DeANGELO
Beaches-area fans didn't get
to see much of home-grown
Florida Gators Tim Tebow and
Kyle Jackson last Saturday
Tebow, a freshman quarter-
back who guided Nease High to
a state championship last season
rushed six times for 36 yards.
Jackson, a Fletcher High grad
and backup safety, saw duty on
punt and kickoff coverage.
Jackson, a junior sociology
major, has three solo tackles
and three assisted tackles play-
ing mainly on special teams
through the Gators' first eight
games this season. The 6'1,
200-pound Jackson started 12
games in his freshman and
sophomore seasons but was rel-
egated to back-up when Reggie
Nelson emerged as Florida's
starting safety early last season.
Tebow, one of the most high-
ly-recruited quarterbacks in the
country last year, has been used
mainly in short-yardage rush-
ing situations this season,.
although he is 10-of-14 for 152
.yards in the passing depart-
ment with two touchdowns
and one interception. The
freshman has completed 71.4
percent of his passes with the
longest a 35-yarder for a touch-
down against LSU on October
On the ground, the 6'3",
229-pound Tebow is Florida's
second leading rusher with 282
yards on 50 carries. He has
scored four TDs and is averag-

Against the Bulldogs, Tebow
fumbled after being hit on the
Florida 14-yard line in the
fourth quarter, leading to
Georgia's second score of the
game, Afterward, the quarter-
back said he wasn't sure how
he lost control of the ball and
would wait to see game film to
get a better read.
We have to buckle
down and fix it but the
good thing is, even
though we didn't play
as well as we're capa-
ble of playing, we got
"I don't know [what hap-
pened]," Tebow said. "I'll have
to go look and find out .. I'm
not sure if [a Georgia defender]
got a helmet on it or what."
While many in the crowd of
84,572 at Alltel Stadium had
Expected to see a lot of Tebow :
. against the Bulldogs especial-
ly after head coach Urban
Meyer indicated as much in the
days leading up to the game -
he was used sparingly.
In his post-game comments,
Meyer said it was his intention
to expand Tebow's role in the
passing game, but it simply did-
n't happen Saturday. The coach
said he was unhappy Tebow
didn't throw a pass.
"We had a couple of good
passes in there for him," Meyer
said. "We're rethinking that
whole thing. Doggone it, we
want that kid to play. He's a
hell of a player. He came out of
the gate with that 20-yard run
and then [we] kind of forgot
about that other stuff."
Tebow's first carry of the
game came on Florida's open-
ing drive. After receiving the
snap in shotgun formation, he
sprinted left for 20 yards before
being upended by Bulldogs cor-
nerback Paul Oliver. But Tebow
gained just 16 yards on five car-
ries the rest of the game.
-Meyer said he wasn't happy
with his team's passing game
and hinted Tebow might enjoy
a larger role this week against
Vanderbilt, particularly in light
of news that starting QB Chris
Leak believes he played much
of last Saturday's game with a
concussion sustained in the
first half. Meyer said Leak had
."three of four missed calls"
after the hit and lamented a
string of dropped passes, wvo
costly turnovers and eight
offensive penalties against
"We'll just work it out and
try to execute better," Tebow
said. "We have to buckle down
and fix it but the good thing is,
even though we didn't, play as.
Well as we're capable of playing,
we got the win."

SGators and Bulldogs renew rivalry
Though administrations at both schools currently frown
upon calling it The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail
Party, the annual Georgia-Florida college football game
played in Jacksonville is steeped in tradition. Last Saturday, at
Alltel Stadium, the Gators sprinted out to a 21-0 lead then held
on as the Bulldogs staged a late rally that fell a bit short. Florida
won, 21-14, to keep its national title hopes alive.
Clockwise from top left: Georgia running back Kregg Lumpkin
(6) is blasted by Florida safety Tony Joiner during first quarter
Gators head coach Urban Meyer, right, speaks with freshman
QB Tim Tebow on the sideline. Tebow helped lead Nease High
to a state championship last season.
Lumpkin fumbles the ball on the Bulldogs-opening drive ol the
second half as Gators defensive tackle Marcus Thomas closes
in on the play.
Tebow, right, picks up yardage as Georgia free safety Keith
Johnson trails the play.
Former Fletcher High star Kyle Jackson takes a break during
pre-game warm-ups near the Florida sideline.
