A St. Johns County School
District committee is crunch-
ing population numbers that
will help decide who will
attend the Ponte Vedra high
school expected to open in
The first of two Town Hall
meetings on attendance zones
for that and three other
schools to be build will be held
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday,
Dec. 5 at Nease High School.
"Right now we're at the
stage where we're getting our
projected [population] num-
bers," Tom Schwarm, senior
director of school operations
for the St. Johns School
District, said this week.
He said that at the Dec. 5
meeting "we should have a
couple of proposals that we
want to share with the public."
The second Town Hall meet-
ing is scheduled 7. p.m.
Monday, Dec. 11 at Bartram
Trail High School in Northwest
St. Johns County.
All four of. the schools
planned .or started .air ii the
county's north, where growth
has been fastest.
Ground was broken last
month on a high school in
Northwest St. Johns that is
expected to relieve crowding
at Bartram Trail. Bartram,
which opened in 2000 'was
built for 1,500 students and as
of this week had 2,617 stu-
Nease, also supposed to hold
1,500, had 2,076 students as of

Schwarm said the zoning
committee considers housing
ready for occupation, under
construction and planned in
the near and long-term future.
Nocatee, being built on both
sides of County Road 210
between the Palm Valley
bridge and U.S. 1, is expected
to have about 30,000 residents
by the time it is built out in 25
Because the Town Hall zon-
ing meetings will address the
addition of two new high
schools, attendance zones for
Nease and Bartram may also be
affected, according to a news
release from the School
"The projections play a key
role," said Schwarm, adding
that the impact of Nocatee will
affect attendance zones for
Nease and the Ponte Vedra
Both new high schools in
North St. Johns are expected to
open in 2008. Construction on
the school at Davis Park is
expected to begin in late

Travelers may soon see an
end to the zigzags and con-
struction delays on County
Road 210'west of the Palm
Greg Barbour, president of
The Parc Group, master
developers of the 12,000-acre
Nocatee west of the bridge,
said Monday that two lanes
of the new four-lane, limit-
ed-access Nocatee Parkway
should be open in 90 to 120
traffic will be allowed on
those two north lanes while
the two remaining lanes are
being built, Barbour said.
The existing 210 will remain
for local traffic.
In recent weeks, 210 traffic
west of the bridge has been
reduced to one lane or
stopped altogether at various
times so 82-ton beams could
be placed for overpass
bridges on Nocatee Parkway.
Speaking, at the monthly
meeting of the Palm Valley
Barbour likened Nocatee
Parkway to Butler Boulevard.
But unlike'f '.i;i'.. tion
around Butler, he sa'ld, local
traffic won't have to get back
on Nocatee Parkway to access
. rearby .sb; .,r,. I g;etomenon
that often eeps i"utler
"Traffic moving through
the common if[.QfJf atee]
and in the c r ifAini, will
not impact east-west traffic,"
One audience inember said
that some persons who live
along 210 and eventually
may be surrounded by
Nocatee are concerned that
County Road 210 will be
Barbour explained that
although Nocatee Parkway
will connect to County Road
210 at the four-lane Palm
Valley Bridge, it will contin-
ue to be called County Road
210 for about one mile west
of the bridge.
There, Barbour said, a traf-
fic light will be placed at a
road leading south to the
high school that planned by
the St. Johns County School
District. The school is
expected to open in 2008.
St. Johns County wanted
210 to retain its name up to
that traffic light, Barbour
said. Nocatee developers
have no say-so in what new
name, if any, is given to 210
west of there, he said.
Between the light and U.S.
1, where Nocatee Parkway
will end at the existing 210,
traffic will be able to enter
and exit the parkway at two
interchanges only, Barbour
Nocatee donated the site
for the Ponte Vedra high
school, which Barbour said
will be nearly half a mile
south of 210.
Just north of the high
school site is property being
donated to New Beginnings
Baptist Church, Barbour said.
The road to the high
school: will lead into the
along the Intracoastal
Waterway, he said.
Under the plans approved
for Nocatee, St. Johns
County will be given six
more school sites: five for
elementary schools and one
for a middle school, Barbour
One site will be donated to
Duval County for an elemen-
tary school. About 15 per-
cent of Nocatee lies in Duval
St. Johns County also will
be given sites for one library,
two fire stations, one sher-
iff's substation and one
county annex, Barbour said.

The Board of Trustees for the Ponte
Vedra Municipal Service District
(MISD) decided Monday night to
renew the MSD's contract with the St.
Johns County Sheriff's Office instead
of hiring a private security'company.
The trustees unanimously agreed
that sheriff's officers can provide pro-
tection that private guards cannot
because the officers carry weapons,
have the ability to respond more
quickly and have the power to arrest.
"We determined that the private
security companies possibly cannot
achieve all that the community
'desires," MSD trustee Doug Crane said
in an interview Tuesday.
NMSD Chairman Bob Reesh pro-
posed a switch to a private company
in July after many residents com-
plained that they never see the St.
Johns County deputies assigned to
Reesh suggested that the board
research the pros and cons of hiring a
private company partly because
Sheriff David Shoar refused to install
GPS navigation systems in the cars of
MSD deputies. *
The GPS systems would have
enabled trustees to know exactly
where the deputies were patrolling

Babysitter: 'It'sjust as importantfor the babysitter to feel safe, comfortable'
pholo Dv ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
Children practice listening for breathing at a Safe Sitter class recently.
Continued from A-i
Students also learn basic first
aid techniques, rescue breath-
ing, and what to do in lots of
-different .scenarios such as if
you find a gun in a house.
"Treat.it like it's loaded,'
answers one student; .
"Take the children away
from the gun and call an
The program not only teach-
es what to do in an emergency
situation, but offers lots of tips
S on- how, 'to 'avoid them.
Avoiding foods children are
most likely to choke on such as
hotdogs, carrots, grapes and,
popcorn are some of the guide-
lines discussed in the class.
And eliminating' unsafe tasks
such as cooking, giving a child
a bath or watching them in 'a
pool are also precautions rec-.
.ommended by Safe Sitter.
The program is also designed
to keep the babysitters safe.
Safe Sitter recommends sitters
find jobs through people they
know and not to publish their
names in newsletters, etc. [The'
participants in Friday's class
signed waivers t'o have' their
photographs published but
under Safe Sitter policy, cannot
have their names published].
"It's just as important' for the
babysitter to feel safe and com-
fortable," said :Jill Witemyre,
the outreach coordinator for'
Baptist Beaches and a certified
Safe Sitter instructor who co-
taught Friday's class.
"A lot of the children in the
class have younger brothers
and sisters or maybe they feel
ready to babysit neighbors. It's
that transitional time where
they see if thev' can handle it
and take on other babysitting
jobs. But it is a job so they
learn to treat it like one."
Yuhnh and Witemyre were
both babysitters and both have
bachelor's degrees in health
education from the University
of North Florida. Yuhnh is cur-
rently in nursing school at
FCCJ and doing an internship
at Baptist Beaches.
"A lot of it is going over dif-
ferent scenarios so if some-
thing happens they don't
panic; they will know how to
handle themselves," Witemyre
said. "This class almost scares
them a little to let them know
they need to take it seriously.
It's a big responsibility."
Baptist 'Beaches offers the
Safe Sitter class several times a
vear. The cost is $30. For more
information call the communi-
ty relations office at 904-627-
1960 or 904-627-2910.: The
website www.sa fesit ter.org
offers tips for sitters, tips for
parent of sitters and tips on

tion for hiring a babysitter is to

your child a chance to adjust
to your departure and warm up
to the babysitter.

SThe Leader's Opinion
Future teams hurt
Nease High School of Porite Vedra Beach has been fined
$20,000, its football program placed on six years of restrictive
probation, and the school's entire athletic program placed on.
five years of administrative probation for 'major violations" by
its football program.
SOfficials for the Florida High School Athletic Association,
which levied the penalties earlier this month, said the fine is
the largest ever levied. Some cynics note that the fine may not
hurt Nease as much as it rmght another school, given the huge
success of the booster program due to the affluence of many
attending the school. .
To date, no appeal has been filed, challenging the FHSAA's
actions. Indeed, school officials note that they were the ones
to notify the state office of the potential violations, .
Since then, two assistant coaches have been let go.-- despite'
initial comments from administrators that no personnel
changes would be made. The head coach of the undefeated
'team is still at his post, though.
It is also worth noting that the school .as been on adminis-
tration probation for previous violations in its baseball pro-
gram. The repeat offenses in the school's athletic department
would seem to indicate a systemic problem that can and
must be'routed ouit by administrators promptly.
An FHSAA commissioner made it clear the association has
"serious questions about the level of control, if any, the
school's administration has over its athletic program."
Many questions need to be answered openly and immedi-:
ately. For example, do school administrators have adequate
control over funds that benefit sports teams? Are all coaches
well briefed and tested on compliance with regulations
that govern school athletic programs? Do those responsible for
student athletes understand there is zero tolerance for non-
Further violations of FHSAA rules put the school at risk for
additional penalties, which could include expulsion.
School athletic programs offer students many benefits. In
addition to fostering team building and spirited competition,
the athletic programs should provide all participants lifelong
lessons in fair play and good sportsmanship.
Sure, winning is nice but those lessons in sportsmanship are
far more important that the score at the end of the game or the
Nease High School broke the rules and penalties have been
levied. That is as it should be. \Ve would suggest that some of
the penalties, however, go beyond punishing those responsible
for the current violations.
This year's football team is still eligible to participate in the
2006 FHSAA Class 4A Football Championship. It seems some-
what inequitable that the penalties levied against the school
actually do not impact the 2006 winning team as much as
they do future teams.
As it currently stands, today's seventh-grade students who
are Nease-bound will wind up being penalized more than the
head coach of this year's team, who was the one who allowed
the rules to be flouted either inadvertentl J6Y'it.ntjntiol-'
.lyI._lh e.b ead.coach has. not heen p-n lizied ,iLalJliccording to
Punishing students who are still a half dozen years away
from graduating and have not yet donned a Panther jersey
seems unfair. Yet, under the penalties levied against the school
those students will be banned from televised performances,
playing in fall /spring lamborees and playing out of state
FHSAA bylaws state that "students, who are ineligible to par-
ticipate in competition, may seek a reinstatement of eligibility
if they can prove that the rule which makes them ineligible
Spaces an undue hardship on them because of situations or cir-
cumstances beyond their control."
The Nease team of 2012 might want to ready its appeal now.
According to the FHS.L4, the three specific violations were:

Homelessness at the Beaches
involves many families facing
some very difficult times
To the editor:
This letter is in response to
a recent letter regarding
homelessness at the beach.
There were several distortions
in that letter that represent
many people's misconcep-
tions about the homeless situ-
ation in America. First and
foremost, according to the US
Mayors Conference Report on
Hunger & Homelessness
dated December 2005( a sur-
'vey of 24 cities across the
country the #1 cause of
homelessness in America is
"the loss of affordable hous-
ing". The fastest growing seg-
ment of the homeless popula-
tion is "families with chil-
dren". The beaches communi-
ty represents a microcosm of
this trend. In the past year we
Pi'. 'lt*it ogt' 800 lo-'wt-'
income homes due toacondo
conversions mainly along the
Mayport Road corridor. As a
result, the agencies at the
beach have been over-
whelmed this year with many
desperate families looking for
housing, some of these fami-
lies have become homeless.
The "transitional housing"
that was mentioned ,by the
previous letter writer has been
operating for several years, it
is called Helping Hands
Village. It is run by a faith-
based organization that has
been helping needy beach res-
idents for over a decade. It
certainly cannot be equated
to a "state run hospital".
These are single family homes
where homeless families with
children can reside at a
reduced rate for a period of
time 6-18 months. While liv-
ing in these homes the family

After nearly an hour of
debate, the city of Atlantic
Beach granted the owner of the
Comfort Inn on May-port Road a
temporary waiver to install a
new sign face on his existing
The approval is contingent on
the owner complying with cur-
rent sign codes before July 2007.
The cunent codes would limit
that sign to 10-feet tall. ; '
The sign at the Comfort Inn,
located at 2401 Mayport Road,
suffered hurricane damage two
years ago. Current regulations
require that non-conforming
signs be brought into compli-
ance when any change made to
the display area or face area is
more than 25 percent, accord-
ing to Community
Development Director Sonya
John Shea, the owner of the
hotel, applied for a permit'last
summer to replace the sign face
and was informed of the regula-
tions. Because of a pending cor-
porate logo change, he delayed
further action, according to

management for Comfort Inn,

repaired and that the face be
replaced with the new corporate
logo by the end of this year or

However, in four years, Shea
is moving to a different fran-

Shea meet with the city before
Juily 2007 and present a detailed

has several alternative healing programs, including one of its
newest endeavors, comfort pillow cases. Comfort Care Team

The Baptist Medical Center.
Beaches has made some addi-
tions to its alternative healing
program, according to Kam
Durham, coordinator for the
Comfort Care program.
The Comfort Care Team was
established in 2003 to provide
,alternative healing to hospital
patients and includes pro-
grams such as pet therapy,
music and, most recently, art
and comfort pillowcases,
which, provides special
patients with handmade pil-
lowcases, according to pro-
The program is possible due
to volunteers from the com-
munity who give their time to
help patients in their recov-
ery, Durham said. Most
recently, Dr. Gerson Yessin, a
concert pianist and member
of the Boston Philharmonic,
joined the music therapy
Yessin volunteers once a
week for an hour and a half to
two hours, providing individ-
ual room service to different
patients with his mobile key-
board, playing two or three
classical songs for each.
He also has future plans to
teach patients how to play the
keyboard, Durham said,
laughing at the thought that a
patient could come in for sur-
gery and leave knowing how
to play an instrument.
The program has had signif-
icant effects on patients'
health such as lowering blood
pressure and heart 'rate,
For example, one surgical
patient had high blood pres-
sure after surgery. Someone,
from the music therapy team
played'music for the patient
while a dog was placed in his.
lap. After that, his blood pres-
sure was completely'normal,
Of course, staff enjoys the
music, too. Sometimes the
doctors will. even stand out-
side a patient's room to listen,
Durham said. :
"The atmosphere in the
hospital has changed,"' said
One of the newest pro-
grams, providing pillowcases
,for select patients, also allows
staff members to get involved
in the healing process in a dif-
ferent way than they normal-
Beginning in December, if a
staff member would like to
honor a patient in a special
way, they can request a pil-
lowcase for them.
The pillowcases are hand
made by hospital staff 'mem-
ber. Sit-n-sews are planned
and employees spend time
crafting the decorated cases.
So far, they have made 100
Next month, Gus Gonzalez,
a certified art therapist will
join the team and begin
sketching in central areas
where patients, visitors and
staff can participate in the
The programs are "far-
reaching" and "have helped
many patients", according to
Durham, who said she is alsp
grateful to the volunteers who

amount not to exceed $20 mil-

some of the facilities at the con-

director of Fleet Landing and

This is the third, bond
issuance that Fleet Landing has
had through local go ernment,
according to Chauncey Lever,'
an attorney-who represents
Lever explained that the
issuance is merely a"pass
through" and does not affect
the city in terms of its finances
Although city attorney Alan
Jensen was not at the meeting,
he had previously reviewed the
request and reported to City
Manager Jim Hanson that there
is no liability and there would
not be any expenses to the city.
Mayor Don Wolfson said at
Monday's meeting that the city
has no obligations and there
are no risks involved and that
in approving this, the city is
just used as a conduit. Lever
echoed the mayor's comments..
City finance director Nelson
Van Liere also conferred with
the city's bond counsel and
reported that the city is in no
way impaired by this transac-

which produced similar symp-

"We go through a near death
experience every other year,"
said Rick Hoffman, Pat's hus-
band of 30 years.
Pat has been in and out of
doctor's offices frequently over
the years, but she doesn't look
at it with negativity or anger,
but rather the contrary.
She's developed such strong
relationships with her doctors,
nurses and other patients that
she refers to the other women
who have, also suffered from
breast cancer and have
received chemotherapy in
group sessions as "the girls."
"We all sit in the chemo
room and he [the doctor] has
these chairs with these big old
backs and we talk and we gab,"
According to her husband,
she was with her oncologist so
often that he teased her about
having another man in her
Pat was diagnosed with
breast cancer on a Friday and
had a mastectomy the follow-
ing Tuesday, "just to get it over
with," she said.
According to her daughter,
Chrissy, keeping a normal life
is what's most important to
"She kind of downplays
everything," Chrissy said.
During one of her relapses,
Pat felt a pain in her side, but
didn't want to cancel a ski trip
that was planned. Instead of
going to the doctor before the
trip, she waited until she
"I took Motrin and I skied,"
she said matter-of-factly.
After her doctor's visit, she
learned that she had bone can-
cer. Not long after that, she
was also diagnosed with brain
cancer and had gamma knife
radiation, which required
screws to be put in either side
of her head.
Instead of being sad about
hospital visits, you'll usually
find Pat telling jokes, Davis
Pat hasn't let her cancer
affect her work life either. She
is a certified nurse practitioner
and was also a midwife for 10
"I love my work," she said,
explaining that she would
have radiation in the morning
and then go to work.
The only problem she had
was that the radiation made
her tired, so she took naps in
the doctor's sleep rooms on
her lunch breaks.
Although she loved being a
midwife, Pat needed a break
from the nights and weekends.

meet with a financial expert right here in our office after
hours, if that's what works best for your schedule."
Educating clients also means pointing out potential pitfalls
in complex projects. "If, part way through a project a client
decides to change a wall or the size of a room, we don't just
say 'okay,'" Jay said. "Instead, we explain the ramifications of
even a small change and how minor alterations can drive up
the price. We educate clients on the added costs, prolonged
schedule and additional city approvals required with one
goal in mind to help you make a good business decision."

really saw it," said Margaret
O'Grady, smiling at her hus-

veteran in the Pacific.
"I carried a piece of shrapnel,
in me for 27 years, but it never
bothered me" added Fred, a.
rifleman in the 3rd Marine
Division who landed on the
Japanese-held island' of
Bouganville in 1943.
"I was wounded on
Thanksgiving Day and then
got dengue fever. I was 89
pounds, down from 160."
Fred and Margaret O'Grady
met six years ago at Pablo
Towers and were instantly
attracted to each other.
During the war, Margaret
served in Navy intelligence in

Like three of the four
women seated at the table, she

She has also made several

Oilers or Texans, Houston just owns the Jaguars
TAT at's been said in this
corner before bears
repeating: It's not a
disgrace to lose to a superior
team, and the Houston Texans
have proved this season they
are superior to this year's
The Texans have now
whipped the Jaguars twice in
their own playground and here,
where coach and players have
bragged about "home cooking."
Apparently the home chefs.
were off dut' Sunday. Jaguars
fans have a right to know why
this team can't beat the Texans,
a club that was originally put
together from Jacksonville play-
er and coaching castoffs.
The same spell cast on
Wayne Weaver's team still
holds true; Jacksonville could-

n't beat Houston when they"
were the Oilers, much less the
Texans. A rose by any other
name still smells the same.
Only Suntday it wasn't Houston
that smelled ... it was the
One stupid remark by a
Jaguar "guaranteeing" a victory
was enough to ignite the
Texans, they say. Even a team
that has had trouble beating '
anyone, except for the Miami
Dolphins this season.
One could overlook a rookie
making that remark, but not a
seasoned veteran. Especially
one who has been the very
heart and soul of the Jaguars
Sfor several years.
It's time for soul-searching.
Players who can't catch a ball
in their very hands should get
South of the game. Surely there
are saloons who could use bar-
tenders, although the drinks
would probably be dropped
Before getting to the customers.
Good truck drivers are always
needed, too. And the jobs pay
well, although not as much as
pro football; where even the
slightest talefits can afford the
most expensive sports cars.
That leads us to the arrest of
players who booze up and drive
as though they are qualifying
for the Indy 500.
But police are arresting the
wrong Jaguars. The ones who
should be behind bars are those
impersonating NFL players.
Here's a suggestion: If certain'
players can't catch passes a sev-
enth-grader would snare, why
not throw to their feet for a: .
change. Soccer players and
monkeys show good control
with their feet.
Some Jaguars are guilty of
taking money under false pre-
tenses, robbing owner Wayne
Weaver and the fans who pay
To paraphrase the elder Jini
Mora in a memorable melt-
down, "Playoffs? Playoffs? Are
you kidding.me, playoffs?" This
team, with all of its maladies
like injuries and, luh, court
cases, will do well to finish the
