Fired coaches appeal Nease football ruling
by LAURA FOWLER
Two Nease High School assis-
tant football coaches tired this
month for recruiting violations
have appealed, saving the
Florida High School Athletic
Association's ruling should be
The appeal, filed Friday,
claims that an FHSAA commis-
sioner found the student in
question had not been recruit-
.ed "but found that illegal
. recruiting occurred at Nease."
Meanwhile, the principal of
Nease said that although the
school will not appeal the
FHSAA ruling, it will appeal the
six-year probationary period
once the new Ponte Vedra high
school is ready to open in
Thomas J. Fraser, the attor-
ney representing the coaches,
said Monday that the conclu-
sions of the FHSAA investiga-
tion are contradictory because
the association ruled that the
football player involved was in
fact eligible to play.
"In my mind it seems fairly
inconsistent," Fraser said in a
The appeal, a copy of which
was obtained from the FHSAA,
notes that the FHSAA ruled
Nov. 6 that its recruiting policy
had been violated because the
player's father had been
offered and accepted work
with Wesley Haynes, who was
then an assistant coach.
The next day, Haynes, Fraser
and FHSAA officials met "to
discuss the fact that [the busi-
ness relationship between
Haynes and the father] had
absolutely nothing to do with
his son, and certainly had
nothing to do with Nease ath-
letics," according to the
The player in question, who
moved with his father to
Ponte Vedra Beach from out-
of-state, was not declared ineli-
gible, and Nease did not have
to forfeit any of its games nor
its chance to defend its state
According to the appeal, the
father of the student was look-
ing for international business
opportunities, and found
Haynes' company, Licensing
Partners International, or LPI,
in Ponte Vedra.
The father visited Haynes in
Ponte Vedra in April, but
Haynes "did not even know
that [the businessman] had a
son," the appeal says.
The father later enrolled his
son at Nease on a return visit
in May and eventually made
living arrangements with for-
mer assistant coach Kenneth
Fasnacht after meeting him at
a Nease football practice, the
Fasnacht was found to have
given the player rides to and
from school and had sublet a
room in a condominium to the
father and son.
The FHSAA investigation
concluded that those arrange-
ments violated its policy on

ing with Haynes, the FHSAA

Representatives of Verticality,
a company proposing a cell
tower along State Road A1A at
Mickler Road, will meet with
residents of Seaside, a nearby
subdivision, some of whom
have objected to the tower.
The meeting will be held at 4
p.m. Nov. 29 in the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.
The 150-foot-tall tower,
which would require a variance,
was recommended for approval
by the St. Johns County
Planning aiTd' Zifin-'gAgency
The PZA voted for approval in
October, despite negative com-
ments from nearby residents,
including representatives of
William Rand, owner of
Verticality, told PZA members
that he didn't meet with resi-
dents about his proposal
because meetings about a simi-
lar tower on Roscoe Boulevard
Rand told the board that per-
sons who attended those previ-
ous meetings were rude and did
not want to listen to what he
had to say.
PZA members denied the

Commission later denied

Rich elected chair, 3-2
by LAURA FOWLER
Incoming St. Johns County
commissioners Tom Manuel
and Ron Sanchez were sworn
in Tuesday morning in a brief
ceremony at the county audi-
torium in St. Augustine.
Within minutes, the two
made waves by completing
their first action on the board:
electing Commissioner Ben
Rich as chairman after reject-
ing Cyndi Stephenson as chair.,
Rich was a vocal supporter of
both candidates during the
elections, which caused ten-
sion between him and com-
missioners Karen Stern and
Bruce Maguire the incum-
bents who were ousted from
the District 2 and District 4
In. Tuesday's meeting,
Commissioner Jim Bryant,
who served as chairman for the
past year, nominated Vice
Chairman Stephenson for the
But Stephenson's nomina-
tion failed 3 to 2, with Rich,
Manuel and Sanchez dissent-
Manuel was also nominated
by Stephenson, but he with-
drew his nomination in an
effort to ensure that Rich got
the position instead.
Moments later, Manuel was
elected vice chair.
"I'm excited about the
opportunity," Manuel said -in

As for their holiday plans,
both Manuel and Sanchez said
they will be spending
Thanksgiving at home in St.
Johns County with their fami-
lies and friends.
Sanchez joked that his holi-
day dinner will be slightly dif-
ferent this year, because he
won't need to explain how he
lost yet another bid for a St.

explained that the player "was
not 'recruited' by special
inducement" but that "Nease
had violated the 'ask before
you act' policy," of which the
assistant coach was unaware,
according to the appeal.
Ohn Nov. 7, the FHSAA
revised its ruling, finding that
the violation of FHSAA's policy,
"was unintentional based on
lack of knowledge of the poli-
cy," according to the appeal.
"Therefore, the 'policy' that
Commissioner Stewart found
that Nease violatedd was the
fact that it did not seek a pre-
liminary eligibility ruling,"
according to the appeal.
The FHSAA's bylaws say a
member school may, but is not
required to, request an official
ruling on a student's eligibility,
the appeal says.
In a case such as this, "where
common sense would dictate
that there is no relationship
between a parent's business
activities and the athletic activ-
ities of their children," the
request for an eligibility ruling
would not be required, accord-
ing to the appeal.
"Therefore it is impossi-
ble to sustain a finding that Mr.
Haynes in any way violated^,
any policy so "the finding that
there was a violation commit-
ted by someone associated
with Nease High School should

that the FHSAA official who

Thomson said earlier this
month that she fired the two
coaches after the FHSAA rul-
ing, which put the school on

tion and levied a $20,000 fine.
Thomson said in an inter-
view Monday that the school is
not involved in the appeal, and
is accepting the conclusions
and consequences of the

does intend to appeal the

and coaches will be movingit)
the new school.
Thomson said she wants to
appeal the restrictive probation
once the school demonstrates
that it has made changes.
"We felt that at this point to
turn around and appeal right
*now would be inappropriate,"
Thomson said. :
"However, the length of time
is something that could be
appealed [in about a yearj" ,
Thomson said the school
will now conduct careful
screening of every athlete who
transfers into Nease athletics.
Nease coaches will be
responsible for learning where
the student athletes came from
and wh\ they transferred.
Thomson said she will also
make sure all the coaches,
booster parents and guidance
counselors at Nease are aware
of FHSAA policies.

The Leader's Opinion
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with
the blessings of fndtful fields and healthful skies...
President Abraham Lincoln
7... ." ; ,. October 3, 1863
So begins Lincoln's invitation to all Americans to spend
a Thursday in November giving thanks and praise.
Fortunately, those words are still apt.
Lincoln's proclamation came during the Civil War as he
sought ways to unite a divided nation. Some states had.
been observing Thanksgiving for many years dating
back to a harvest celebratory feast in 1621 at Plymouth
In 1939, another president got involved with the holi-
day when FrankldinDelafhbRoosevelt set Thanksgiving for
the third Thursday in November assuring a long
Christmas shopping season for a financially beleaguered
nation, To quiet some of the squabbling that ensued,
Congress jointly decreed in 1941 that Thanksgiving
should fall on'the fourth Thursday of November.
It still does. The holiday shopping season officially
begins Friday, though the warmup legan long before
Halloween in many stores.
The origins of the holiday may not matter during the
annual gathering of family and friends around a turkey.,
carcass and the football games on TV.
But national unity is certainly to be celebrated on this
uniquely American holiday. All it takes to celebrate the
holiday is a good appetite and a sense of appreciation and
gratitude for blessings both big and small.

To the editor:
Looking at the demographics
of the 300' million people living
in the United States as to-their
varied -eligious persuasions and
also the continued effort of the
GOP/RNC to use these facilities
for campaigning and for
endorsements, it is time to sim-

include very important charita-
ble organizations such as
Catholic Charities, Salvation
Army, Good-Will, United Jewish
Appeal, etc. The suggestion
applies only to buildings identi-
fied as .churches, temples,
mosques, etc.- -
There has been so much
abuse, especially with the
Catholic, the Baptist, the
Methodist, the Lutheran, and
the Episcopal churches that it
costs the Internal Revenue
Service a large sum of money to
monitor these efforts for viola-
Without the tax exemption
status, the churches could then
charge which ever political
party wants to reach their mem-

nonchurchgoers who now sub-

called his people out of the
churches because they have
been taken over by the devil.

To the editor:
During the past months as
the fight to stop Wal-Mart from
building a Supercenter in NB, a

Baptist Beaches cardiac rehab clan
celebrates life as 'Grateful Undead'
by KATHY HARTMAN
T he fourth week in
November marks a cele-
S Lbration of thanks
throughout the co.untry.
But for oneg_9ou -ot
friends at the Beaches -
who call themselves the
Grateful Undead every,
week is an opportunity to
gather in celebration of life,
health and friendship.
Each of the group has had
some "cardiac event" -
heart attack, heart surgery or
some other heart procedure
- and has lived not only to
tell about it, but also to offer
each other support and, as it
turns out, to have fun.
"We decided we all like
each other," said Tom Brown
of Ponte Vedra Beach, who
joined the Tuesday and
Thursday rehab group after
triple bypass surgery about
three years ago.
Their camaraderie keeps
them coming back to rehab
"just to see the guys and be
with our friends," Brown
said, noting that two women
are among the "guys."
Sara Holloway-Smith. car-
diac and pulmonary rehab
coordinator at Baptist
Medical Center Beaches, said
the name the group chose by
a vote of its approximately
15 members is "perfect."
"They have figured out

Thursday as she listens to
some of the Grateful Undead
pledge to stick with healthy liv-
that Life is short and we're
not here forever on this
said in a recent telephone
The attitude exhibited by
the group's members, she
said, is this: "Let's make each
day count. Let's appreciate
each other. Let's focus on the
important things in life."
The cardiac patients who
were to become the Grateful
Undead began meeting
about three years ago, said
Each had completed the
initial cardiac rehabilitation
period usually two to
three months, she said -
thus becoming a "graduate"
encouraged to stay in rehab
Although other patients '
have regular rehab times at
Baptist Beaches, Holloway-
Smith said, this group
proved to be unique.
Most of them are in their
50s, she'said, "so they're a
younger cardiac population."
Many are still working and
all are "very vital and full of
life," she said.
"Common problems and
understanding created bonds
which are strongly accented
with good humor," Grateful
Undead Lewis E. Story
explained in an e-mail.
"You might say a fraternity
broke out," he said.
"No event is too small to
cause a party to break out."
Last Thursday, for exam-
ple, the group gave a surprise
birthday party for Holloway-
Instead of a birthday cake,
Brown made her a taco pie

shredded cheese and ground
The birthday candle was
in the shape of a question
mark, "because we didn't
want to get in trouble with
the warden," Brown said,

mark Brown's 60th birthday,

Group members felt that
because she had "held our
arms taking our blood pres-
sure so much, that she must
be able to identify people by
their arms," Brown said in a
telephone interview Monday.
During her goodbye party
at rehab, the nurse was
blindfolded and felt her way
past the first three arms, he
said. The fourth arm was
that of Brown wearing the
"When she felt the arm,
she flipped the blindfold off,
and, of course, I scooped her
up in my arms as King

Musical computer for older kids now on market
by ZANE BINDER
Corgi USA has introduced a
musical computer for slightly
older children. The Corgi iCar
plugs right into your iPod (or
similar device) and really puts
on a show!
As parents, you might
remember Corgi from your
youth. They're the worldwide
pioneer of collectible die-cast
models and replicas. The
firm's celebrating its 50th
anniversary this year and
coincidentally has entered the
computer age. Picture, if you
will, a 1/24th scale model
Cadillac Escalade sitting atop
what could be a bedside radio.
Just plug in your MP3 player,
CD unit, stereo, PC, iPod or
anything with a standard
headphone jack. Suddenly, the
music will pour forth from the
car, but it's also designed to
put on a show simultaneously.
The iCar rocks right to left,
front to back and up and
down. Colored lights illumi-
nate the wheel wells, rims,
undercarriage, trunk and
engine areas. Even if you don't
own a portable plug-in musi-
cal .device, have no fear. The
iCar has numerous tunes
The iCar runs on six'AA bat-
teries or an AC adapter. For
$35, don't expect sound repro-
duction like a top-line
Nakamichi, but it isn't bad. It's
available at Wal-Mart,' ,

numerous other retailers. The

to play games, figure out trivia
quizzes and learn simple
money management. Be
aware, though, the User
Agreement you're mandated
to sign to gain access to
WVebkinz World contains lim-

Registration expires in approx-

want to keep your Webkinz
enrollment active, you must
buy a neqv pet! If you forget
your username or password,
you'll also have a difficult but
not impossible task reactivat-

The Webkinz idea is a good
one, but making kids and par-

spend additional money to
buy another Webkinz, isn't.
Overall, the iCar and

with other toys, check them
carefully before buying. Both

the first half, rushing for 179
yards and passing for 202.
Junior quarterback Ted
Stachitas was 13 of 19 pass-
ing with a 35-yard scoring
strike to Quinton Huggins
weight catches, 114 yards.
Stachitas (149 rushing
electrified the home crowd
with a 65-yard TD run with
7:08 gone in the first quarter.
The run put Nease up 14-0.
"On that particular play,
Ted made a great read
because we were trying to
throw a screen pass and he
saw that they had it defend-
ed," said Howard.
"They had three lineback-
ers floating right to it so I
just took off and there was a
giant gap [in the defense],"
added Stachitas, who finished
with 351 all-purpose yards.
"We knew we could pass
on them so we took advan-
tage of that early on. After
my interception, we went
back to the run."
Safety Brandon Tuck picked
off Stachitas at the Merritt
Island 2, and the Mustangs.
scored three plays later on a
58-yard TD pass.

on the Panthers ensuing pos-
session, and Bates muffed a
punt a few minutes later.

The Panthers booked 15
runs of 10 or more yards in
the game, six by Tronti and
five by Stachitas. They also

7-4A champ, amassed 142
yards on the ground and 196

keep pace with Nease's prolif-
ic spread offense.
"When they need to score,
regardless if it's nine yards or
99, they put it in the end
zone," Mustangs coach Lance
Jenkins said after the game.
"They are a championship
team and that's what cham-
pions do. We knew we had to
play mistake-free football. It
was like getting into the ring
with Mike Tyson in his
prime. You make a mistake

NOTES: Cowgill was St.
in 2002 when the Yellow
Jackets defeated Seabreeze 49-
21 in the third round of the
3A playoffs. "I called all the
coverages for that game," he
recalled Friday. "They had
Xavier Lee at quarterback
back then. Obviously, they
don't have him back'there
now, but the kid they have is
really good, too."
Seabreeze, under head
coach Mark Beach, runs a
high-scoring spread offense,
.much like Nease. The state-
ranked Sandcrabs were the
district run-ners-up to Merritt
Island, losing 23-17. They
beat 6A Sandalwood 17-9 and
lost to 5A No. 3 Daytona
Mainland 23-13 to close out
the regular season.

In the first grueling 40-
minute half, Senators sopho-
more Carolina Lencina had
the best scoring opportunity
from outside the box, but the
Bears goalkeeper was up to
the task and kept the prolific
Lencina from netting a goal.
The talented sophomore,
who made a splash last year
after transferring from
Argentina, is the Senators'
leading scorer this season
and has had hat tricks in two
of the team's five games.
The second half was more
of the same great defense
punctuated by few good scor-
ing chances for either team.

Some good catches of speckled trout, redbass
E excellent catches of speck-
led trout, along with a
few redbass, were report-
ed over the weekend in the
river. The "Mayport Princess"
tied up with anglers coming
off with hefty grouper, cobia,
amberjack and coolers filled
with beeliners and seabass.

FSU can salvage season Saturday against Gators
rhe road back to lost
| glory at least the start
., of it comes for Bobby
Bowden Saturday at noon at
Doak Campbell Stadium.
That's when those horrid
Florida Gators come to call in
the biggest game of the sea-
son for the Florida State
Not only does Uncle Bobby:
have to win a game to offset
his dismal losing record this
season, but some of the pres-
tige and honor he's lost during
this campaign amid the firing
(?) or resignation (?) of his son.
Jeff Bowden, who struggled as
FSU's offensive coordinator for
what seems like years, gave in
to the howling of wolves er,
fans and threw in the towel.
He did the right thing, as
painful as it had to be in the
The ineptness of the
Seminoles offense wasn't all
Jeff's fault, but it might as
well have been. The result was
the same no matter who was
to blame. And all that blame
wasn't aimed at son Jeff, one
might imagine. It might have
been a thinly-disguised attack
on the eldest Bowden.
The angry mob might have
been saying, while toting
torches, tar and feathers,
"Hey, Bobby, isn't it about,
time to turn in your dinner
pail, too? You've given us a
great ride, but there comes a
No matter. Right now the
object at hand is Florida State
to show they're still alive by
beating Florida, which fields
probably its best team since
the glory days of Steve
It won't be easy. Florida
State's quarterbacks seem to
be about as steady as the
American policy in Iraq.
That's just the opposite of the
Gators' signal-callers, with
senior Chris Leak fighting to
finish his career and Tim
Tebow (who has already been
awarded the Heisman Trophy
by fans and medial crawling
up his back.
The Gators are good, but at
times even they forget and
commit a few penalties.

warm-up and even the rookies
were taxed 90 yards. They

But Florida is going, no
matter what, to the SEC
championship game. And the
Seminoles, no matter what,
aren't going to theirs.
Jacksonville gets Georgia
Tech as one representative in
the ACC title game. Speaking
of the Hokies, they will have
to battle their hated foes, the
Georgia Bulldogs, in Atheris.
Which Georgia team will
show up? The one that lost to
Vanderbilt and Kentucky, or
the one that destroyed
Auburn? Coach Mark Richt
would love to know himself.
And the Jaguars go to
Buffalo. It's on the schedule,
not a punishment for the way
they've acted this year.

Instant Air Sends Greetings
for a Warm, Safe Holiday
It's that time of year again! "
Yes, it's that time'of year -
time to give thanks for all
things good that have come
into our lives, time to go
Christmas shopping, time to
decorate our homes for the
season (and hopefully win
the grand prize tor the most
creatively decorated house in
the neighborhood) and time
to get our heating systems
serviced and checked.
You read correctly: Now is
the time to get the heater -:
serviced and checked. "I
know, I know, it doesn't
seem to fit in with the rest of
the festivities, but let me
assure you that it does," said With their motto "Fi
Craig Eddy Jr., who along Air in Atlantic Beac
with his 'wife, Dee, owns ice. Pictured above
Instant Air in Atlantic Beach.
Eddy explains why. "I can almost hear you
ask 'Why?' It's just a'heater,'" he says. "True, it
is a heater, but would it be 'just a heater' if it
decided to break down in the middle of the
coldest night of the year? Of course it
wouldn't be! Because if that happened then it
would no longer be 'just a heater' but anoth-
er challenge to be addressed among a million
other challenges during a very busy holiday
season. Arid, to top it all off, vou have fami-
ly staving with you (read: in-faws) who may
get a little antsy'because they're cold."
Eddy offers some additional food for
thought that may debunk the "it's just a
heater" comment. Did you know you and
your family's safety coufd be compromised?
"I challenge you to research and find news
stories relating to how a house may have
burned down or how a family may have been
.sent to the hospital poisoned by carbon
monoxide- all due to a poorly maintained
heating system that isn't working properly,"
That's where the professionally trained,
background-checked and drug-tested comfort
specialists at Instant Air can help, according
to Eddy. They have in their arsenal two types
Q!,the most comprehensive services offered at
the Beaches designed to alert you, -the con-
cerned homeowner, to any potential hazards
or breakdowns before they happen!
The first is a Safety Inspection, which is a
general, comprehensive inspection of your
system and is free to all Silver Club Instant Air
members. The second is a Super Tune-Up,
which is not only a safety inspection but also
a thorough cleaning of your system. It
includes a cleaning of the blower wheel,
blower housing and the evaporator coil. And
xed Fast. Fixed Right@," the comfort specialists at Emory Instant
h are dedicated to providing Beaches customers top-notch serv-
are owners Eddy and Dee.
something Instant Air added to its Super
Tune-Up just this year it also includes an
inspection of ductwvork for any potential air
leaks. The Super Tune-Up is free to all Gold
Club Instant Air members.
"Instant Air, like all businesses, is always
striving to improve and grow," said Eddy.
"That's why we added the inspection of the
ductwork to our Super Tune-Up, not to men-
tion the fact that all homes will lose 20 to 40
percent of conditioned air due to improperly
Eddy also said that in an effort to better
serve their clients and Club Members Instant
Air has added an exclusive after-hours secret
service number. When asked what it was Eddy
said with a smile, "If I told you then it would-
n't be 'secret' anymore!" But he did say that
it's exclusive to Club Instant Air (CIA) mem-
bers and that if they ever did have a challenge
with their systems'after hours, on weekends
or holidays,' all they have to do is call the
secret number to talk to live person,
Stay tuned for the plans Instant Air has for
the new year. But for right now Eddy and Dee
are enjoying the season and want you to have
a,.trouble- and,w,orry-free, holiday season. And
thev wish you a safe and healthy Christmas
and a Happy New Year.
Instant Air is located at 1198 Mlayport Rd.,
Suite 11, near the intersection of Plaza and
Mayport Road, in Atlantic Beach. For more
