Despite what some people
have said, County
Administrator Ben Adams said
he does not feel like he is being
pushed out of his job.
In an interview Monday,
Adams said his announcement
last week that he is retiring in

of the Board of County
Commissioners are trying to
"It's not the biggest shocker...
in the world," said Adams,;who "

Administrator for the past nine
Adams said he wanted to
give newcomers Tom Manuel
and Ron Sanchez a chance to
pick an administrator who
shares their views on growth
management and other issues.
Manuel and Sanchez, along
with Commission Chair Ben
Rich, have emerged as the new
majority on the board, voting
in a bloc on several issues last
week against commissioners
Cyndi Stevenson and Jim
Stevenson suggested in an
interview with The Leader last
week that Adams was being
pressured by the new commis-
sioners to leave.
"I had a good talk with [Ben
Rich]," Adams said Monday.
"I'm ready to move on. It's
really a hot seat."
Adams said he is thankful for
every minute with St. Johns

they drink and then drive -

"We're asking people to
choose whatever ride they're
taking home if they must go
out and party," he said.
"We're symbolically stand-

is one of the choices they can
make," said May, who added
that it's much better for party-
goers to take taxis or have des-
ignated drivers than be out on
the roadways. ,,
"Because they're either
going to end up in a place like
this, in the back seat of a patrol
car, which ends up in our jail,
or be in a hospital.

any of those things to happen.

A nuclear-powered carrier is one of 13 options
for homeporting additional surface ships at
Mayport Naval station, according to naval repre-
sentatives at a meeting Tuesday.
A "scoping" meeting, held at FCCJ's South
Campus, was to explain the impacts of possibly
homeporting Atlantic Fleet surface ships in
The proposed action is being evaluated in an
environmental impact study (EIS), that will most
likely be finished in 2009, due to the amount of
information needed, federal officials said.
The public comment period will last until Dec.
29. which is an important aspect of the plan,
according to K.C. Marshall, a media relations offi-
cer, who said he wants people to give as much
feedback as possible.
The plan offers 13 options, all of which are
being evaluated in the study, including home-
porting various combinations of surface ships,
such as cruisers, destroyers, frigates, amphibious
assault ships, amphibious transport dock ships,'
dock landing ships or a nuclear-powered aircraft
carrier; according to a fact sheet. One of they 13
optionsis not to change anything or bring any.
Each of these alternatives raises questions
regarding the environment and the socio-eco-:
nomic impact of bringing in more ships, accord-,
ing to federal representatives at Tuesday's meet-
' ing. ',
"When you bring in a ship, you're not just-
bringing in a crew," said Tom Quinn, a Navy cap-.
tain and project representative.
The community would be impacted by popula-
tion growth from the several thousand people
that would come' into Mayport with the addi-
Other concerns .include the environmental
impact. For example, if a nuclear carrier was
brought in, the harbor would have to be dredged.
One of the questions posed was where the col- '
elected debris would go.
Although the plan is in its infancy stages,
the Navy is trying to address these concerns as
early as possible to gain a better understanding
of how people feel and how the plan would
impact the community, according to Marshall.
"This is our chance to evaluate ourselves, the
project....is this a viable option?," he said.
Members of the community were invited to
drop by the. meeting to learn more about the
project or show support. During the first hour of
the meeting a couple of dozen people dropped
in .to ask questions or offer.comments.
Jesse Muriay, who is retired from the Navy,.
said he supports the plan because it would add
to national security, the local economy and it.
would be good for the community as a whole.

in that zone, it could reach 1,167.

St. Johns voice should be area choice
To the editor:
In the election just complet-
ed, Karen Stern, the incumbent
County Commissioner from
District 2, was denied a second
term capturing just 43 percent
of the Republican pnmary vote.
The perception of mismanage-
.nent of growth and her reliance
on campaign funding from
developers, many outside the
County, became a major cam-
paign issue for both incumbents
and both lost.
in spite of this, we under-
stand NMs. Stern is being put for-
ward as a candidate for mem-
bership on the Northeast
Florida Regional Planning
Council representing St. Johns
County on the very growth
issues that cost her the election.
Shouldn't the newly seated
County Commission have a say
as to who represents them on
this regional body? Shouldn't
St. Johns County's interest be
strongly represented and not
necessarily subordinated to a 7
County regional body with a
strong Duval focus?
It certainly doesn't help that
Ms. Stern has appeared to be
hostile to a majority of the new
Board of County

Mix It Up program is innocent
To the editor:
A recent letter to the editor
perfectly illustrated why there is
a need for anti-bullving efforts
in our public schools. It ill-
seived the public debate for
someone to seek out a conspira-
,c in what was a purely inno-
cent event that was designed to
foster a climate of understand-
ing. It was especially harsh to
demonize the efforts of a school
that sought to create a better cli-
mate for everyone.
Firstly, 'Mix it Up' day at
Mayport Middle School was a
voluntary activity where stu-
dents could sit with someone
w ith whom they would not nor-
mally associate. Students who
opted out were allowed to eat
lunch at their normal assigned
tables. Nobody was 'punished'
for not taking part in this activ-
Having taught at Mayport
Middle foi four years, almost
didn't recognize the 'armed
camp' that the previous letter
writer described. We had volun-
teers from the local naval base
at our school to assist with the
event. Contrary to the conspir-
acy theorists, these caring mem-
bers of the community were not
enforcers of some imagined plot'
to turn our children into com-
I assumed that the purpose of
'Mix it Up' day would be a sim-
ple one. My colleague, Linda
Bishop and her Bullyproof Task
Force, dedicated herself to pro-
moting understanding among
our students. Their intention
was for us to transcend the lim-
itations of cliques that keep us
from developing a positive
sense of community. I saw
nothing that indicated that she
was in league with either Hitler
I am disappointed because,
once again, NMayport Middle is
the subject of misunderstand-
ing. Instead of assuming the
worst, it would not hurt for-s
to actually seek the truth before
jumping to conclusions, I am
proud of our school's efforts and
would invite that letter writer to
see our 'commune' for himself.

Waking up in unreal D.C., the
'Hollywood for ugly people'
fuiestion: .How do you
t' ic cure a young man's ,
infatuation with poli-,
tics? .. '
Answer: Get him a job in
That's what happened to
David Lazar, a friend who left
Washington several years ago
fresh with a degree from George
Washington University and
flush with dreams of being a
political columnist for a major
newspaper. So he signed on as a
reporter for The Franklin Press
in Franklin, N.C., where he cov-
ereo meetings of the town
board, the board of health and
whoever else exercised their
;constitutional nght to assemble.
'He got acquainted with real
people in the real world.
But now, following more
newspaper reporting in New
England, David is back in
Washington, writing speeches
for a small federal agency.
His infatuation, however, has,
:"These people are not con-
nected to the real world," he
said in a telephone conversa-
tion last week. "I was impressed
when I was in college, but I did-'
n't know any better."
SMy question to David was
tfhV: "L'e XVPsitihgoi6iiahs'
caught up in all the- elebity'
worship that is sweeping
Hollywood and the news
media, especially television,
where divorces, love affairs and
Tom and Katie masquerade
"Washington is called
Hollywood for ugly people,"
said Dasid, a master turner of
phrases. "Hollywood people
come to Washington. It's the
same thing in either place. And
they're fascinated with this cul-
ture. Maybe it's the shared need
"He referred to the entourage
of toadies who hang around the
famous and infamous to assure
them they're doing a wonderful
job. The Senate dining room, he
said, "looks like the cantina
scene from 'Star Wars.' What a
collection of oddballs. ..."
And the party scene in
Washington is dtibelTiev'abl~.'-'""
"Illjt'fi.ve,' nin lte,-r ''he fiild,:'
"you'll know the contents of
someone's resume and their
Roladex. but absolutely nothing
about them personally. In the
meantime, they're scanning the
rest of the room to see if there's
someone else more important
to be talking to. If you say some-
thing, you get 'uh-huh, uh-huh,
uh-huh.' Good manners are a
casualty up here."
Practically everybody in
Washington, David said, is there
for a reason: to rise. Which
makes it hard for a single guy to
find a date who's not self-.
As for how government
works, well, you know how it is.
You have the extremes like Sen.
Ted Stevens, who wanted to
build a $315 million bridge to
serve 50 residents in Alaska -
"someone said for the cost of
the bridge, you could buy each
of those residents a Lear Jet,"
David said and you have
"some idealists" who really
want to do a good job.
But nearly all of them, he
said, focus on getting re-elected.
That's what it's all about.
With all its flaws, however,
David would tell you, our gov-
ernment is still ahead of whoev-
er is second. But sometimes he
almost yearns for a good ol'
town hall meeting in Franklin,
N.C., where the world, for the
nWst~"art- still'rlUnniinbs 1eMI
Waiy nendPa9d o Tnit'.JIfoesof
intended: service above self.
Let the ooh-rahs ring out loud
rrhey're going to make a-
I Marine out of.me or kill
1. me trying." That was the*
first message on a post card
which my late wife. Lucy,
and I received from our son,
Eric, now a war veteran, after
he went to Marine Corps boot
camp. It and "Always
SFaithful," the English transla-:
tion of "Semper Fidelis," the
Corps' motto, says a lot about
why that part of our armed
forces is so revered. It also
helps to explain why the new
Museum of the Marine Corps
was conceived and construct-
It took three years to build
the facility, which is located on
135-acres adjacent to the
Quantico, Virginia, Marine
Corps base. According to the
museum's Internet web site
i www.usmcmuseum.org), it
.was dedicated on Nov. 10,
2006, in time to celebrate 231
years of United States Marine
Corps history.. The web site,
contains much information
about the Museum, including
the fact that it has separate gal-
leries devoted to World War 11,
the Korean War, the Vietnam
War, and the Global War on
, .- .
To illustrate the realism of
the designs, the Potomac
News, an area publication,
described the experiences had
by early viewers of the Hill 881
South exhibit in the Vietnam,
War gallery.' It simulates the
1968 siege : of Khe Sanh: .
"Visitors entered the exhibit
through a CH 46 helicopter
fuselage. They could hear the
dialogue between the pilot and
crew chief as they head for a
landing. In a 360-degree envi-
ronment, visitors then
encounter the- sights and
sounds of the war as a Navy
Corpsman tends-to a Marine
on a stretcher and a:'chaplain
leans over a Marine killed in
Said one visitor, Joseph
Alvino of Long Island, N.Y.,' a
former Marine sergeant and
Vietnam War veteran, "I was at ,
this part of, the' battle. I was
one, of the few in my unit to
survive. It was a very bad bat-
tle. To see this is very emotion-
al for me."
At Jax Beach's AmericanI
Legion Post 129, as elsewhere,
former Marines, wearing red
USMC shirts, my son included, "
celebrate the Corps' birthday
with a cake cutting on or near
Nov. 10 each year. During the
"Ooh-rah!," the' standard
Leatherneck greeting, is often
,heard. I think it would be a
nice touch if a Museum video
could: be shown at the post
soon as a sort of preview, pend-
ing an actual Museum visit.
I've suggested, that to the
Museum's Director, and they
may produce one. Meanwhile,
let the ooh-rahs ring out.
Why so little interest in mediation on Wal-Mart?
To the editor:-
If saving the ''quaint vil-
lage" of Neptune Beach is so
urgently important, why is it
that only one .Councilman
attended the special hearing
in its entirety? Not even "the
most vocal opponent" of Wal-
Mart was in full attendance.
Our Mayor did not attend at
To me, this shows they have
more interest in rhetoric and
hysteric emotion rather than
in the law. That's what got us
in this position in the first
Snobbery is cause of most Wal-Mart opposition
To the editor:
Snobbery aside, look at the
reasons which some people
give in opposition to Wal-
Mart, as quoted in The
Leader. Wal-Mart will bring
crime to Neptune Beach, as
though Wal-Mart is a branch
of the Mafia. This complaint
resembles hysteria more than
Wal-Mart will create traffic
where there was no traffic.
Uh, yes. And?
Successful businesses usual-
ly attract traffic. Traffic at
any location would not be an
exotic novelty at the beach or
anywhere else in the county.
Wal-Mart will put local
businesses out of business.
Such as? The complainers are
never specific. With the
exception of Kmart and
businesses are apparently safe
from competition. Wal-Mart
has nothing to offer in com-
petition with Popeye,s, KFC,
the diner or the specialty
businesses in what's call' the
"town center." CVS and
Walgreen's are enormous
chain stores and can take care
of themselves. .
All of the complaints are
apparently some kind of
snobbery at work in the heads,
of the contrarians.
Dexter T Mann,
Tl I_ DL r A *irc.
t used to take an act of
Congress,to get a picture on
a US Postage, Stamp. The
hero, icon or legend never got
to see the honor bestowed upon
them, because they were dead.
The King of Rock and Roll had
been gone 15 years before his
picture graced envelopes in
America. He never got to say
"Thank you vern much!" Elvis
had already left the building!
Yesterday I received a
Christmas card that would
make Elvis turnover in his
grave. I looked at the top right
corner of the envelope and
actually pinched myself to
make sure I was awake. The 39
cent US Postage stamp had a
picture of my cousin Marlene,
and her future ex husband Billy
Shaw from Brunswick!
Underneath that was a card
postmarked Palatka, with my
old buddy Bubba on the stamp
with his hat turned backwards!
By then, I figured, Elvis must be
spinning in his grave.
When I got back into our
kitchen I opened Marlene's
card. There was her usual
Christmas letter explaining that
things just hadn't worked out
with the husband she had earli-
er in the year, Melvin Dudley,
but that her current husband
would be around "forever and a
day." That should mean Billy
would last 24 hours longer than
Melvin, who was just going to
be around "forever." Then I got
to the part explaining the

version with the dog and Aunt
Nonie the one with Melvin's
old truck. When y'all are home
this Christmas, ask them to
show you. Billy has really fixed
up the truck. The gun rack's
twice as big as it was. He also
put some neon lights under the
doors, shag':carpet in the cab,
and Astro Tuif in the bed. Oh,
and he- removed those tacky
mud flaps! I married class this

annual Christmas letter from

ing a camouflaged bath robe
with her hair in curlers, blow-
ing in the barrel of Bubba's 22!

words, and the Palatka Post

Out of curiosity I logged on
to Postagestamps.com and got
the skinny on these 2006 "dig
.me" stamps. They are put
together by the Smithsonian
Institute, an official US Post
Office vendor. Email them your
picture of choice and for $17.99
you'll receive a book of 20
stamps. You only pay $9.25
over the regular cost of stamps.
If your picture is really special it
will get displayed as a giant
stamp at the Smithsonian
National. Postage Museum! I
think 'Marlene's and Bubba's
'photos are more likely to be dis-
played at the Smithsonian
office Christmas Party!
Last night I called my Mama
and she told me she, was in the
middle of hosting one of her
Red Hat Society events. I could
hear all this side splitting laugh-
ter in the background. I said
"What's so funny?"
My Mama answered "Uh, oh,
er, uh nothing."
Suddenly it hit me, "You
showed the ladies Marlene's old
dog on the stamp didn't you?"
"Well, it was just lying on the
card table, and you have to
admit old Norton is not the
prettiest dog in the kennel,
Bless his heart. And your
cousin Marlene, do you think
this marriage will last until New
Years? Bless her heart too!"

Outlook for loridA real estate
market not entirely negative
by CATHY KEEN
-While the outlook for sales of homes
and condos in Florida is bleak, the real
estate prognosis for business properties is
much better as it rides on a still-strong
state economy,. according to a University
ofFlorida study released today..
Nearly half of Florida real estate
experts say it's a poor time to build sin-
gle-family housing and more than two-
thirds say so about condos, but they are'
more optimistic about all other types of
properties, said Wayne Archer, director
of UF's Bergstrom Center for Real Estate
Studies. The results are from the center's
fourth quarterly survey of Florida real
estate trends that was completed in
"Condominium markets are clearly,
struggling and single-family markets are
softening, although, contrary to some
news reports, we don't see evidence of
prices tumbling," Archer said. "But the
picture is pretty healthy when'you look.
at everything else. One important indi-
cator of the real estate market is occu-
pancy rates, and these appear to be sta-
ble or increasing in most markets,
including apartments, office buildings,
retail space, and industrial warehouse
-More than 70 percent of those sur-
veyed said now is a bad time to build
condos, and 46 percent said the same
thing about single-family housing, but
for 10 other property types the respon-
dents were. predominantly neutral or
even positive, he said. ,
The foundation for the upbeat view
about business property is the relative
health and growth of Florida's economy,,
"Employment is very good and the
fundamentals that drive rental income
and occupancy are still very strong," he
said. "In addition, interest rates have
remained perhaps a little more stable
than some people expected."
The share of respondents expecting-
future declines in absorption rates the
rate at which properties are able to be
leased or sold remains unchanged for
single-family housing at 61 percent since
July, Archer said. It inched up slightly for
condos, from 69 to 71 percent.
"The main question we focused .on is
how bad it is," he said. "There have been,
so many news reports and rumors flying
about how the condo bubble has burst
and how the length of time it takes to
Sell a house has increased dramatically."
The results were' somewhat more
sobering for prices. The percentage ,of
respondents expecting single-family resi-
dential prices in Florida to drop doubled
from 24 percent in July to 47. percent in
October, he said.
For condominiums, the rate of decline
iwas not as dramatic as it was for single-
family homes because expectations had
already dropped in July, Archer said.
Forty-four percent' of respondents said
they expected condo prices to decline in
October, compared with 38 percent in
July, he said.
"Condos have always been one of the
most volatile markets in real estate," he
said. "They're a place where naive
investors find it easy to jump in .and
The condo market is probably over-
built at the moment, with properties tak-
ing longer than usual to sell, Archer said.
"If history is any indication, condos
that have special attributes, such as
waterfront or lakefront, are those that'
are going to survive the best," he said.
One sign that pessimism about single-
family housing and condos does not
extend to other real estate, markets in
Florida is in capitalization rates, the
measure of how fast an investment will
pay for itself in net cash, Archer said. If
there is growing apprehension about
rental markets, capitalization rates
should increase in response to rising per-
ceived risk, but respondents reported
capitalization rate increases of less than
a third of a percent .and even some
decreases among 10 major property.
types since luly, he said.
'The increasing cost of homeowners'
insurance in Florida was again a major
concern in this survey, asit was in the
previous quarterly survey released in
September. "However, the fact that the
investment outlook remains stable to
positive for most property types and the
fact that cap rates remain stable, signal-'
ing continued investor confidence, are
both indicators that the immediate
insurance crisis is not yet being viewed
as so bad that it has changed real estate
markets," Archer said.
For the survey, UF's Survey Research
Center asked a series of questions of 183
industry executives,. real estate lawyers,
market analysts, title insurers, financial
advisers, market research economists,
real estate scholars and other experts in

They attended church as a

walking to services behind
their parents "like ducks in a

One of the values their
mother passed down to them
was a "tireless work ethic,"
Feeding a family of this size
was no small task and their
mother cooked every day.
Everything was made from

and cheese, cakes, and other
dishes could be made from a
box bought at the grocery
Their father believed that
children couldn't learn on an
empty stomach, said Reid.
Before heading off to school
the children always had a hot
breakfast of oatmeal, toast
made with an egg fried in the
middle, or fish and grits.
Most of their mother's
recipes were not written, she
just cooked and instinctively'
knew how much to add and
how to do it, the sisters said.
Anyone, who wanted to
know how to make some-
thing, had to cook with her
and record the amounts and
techniques for themselves.
Even now, when the family
gets together, both sisters said
that though they try to dupli-

Their father enjoyed Santa
Claus and worked hard to
keep the belief alive for the
children as long as possible,
she said. .
For both holidays, Wilma
Pack roasted a turkey with
dressing made two ways,
moist or dry, to please the
children. For Thanksgiving
there was "white ham" as the
children called uncured ham
and "pink ham" for
Christmas. Potatoes, sweet
potatoes, macaroni and
cheese, vegetables, and more
filled the table.
For every holiday, each
member of the family could
count on their mother making
one of their favorite dishes.
Since the family was in the
seafood business, seafood was
considered every day fare and
not special enough for holiday
However, Pack added
shrimp to the holiday menu
in later years to please the
son-in-laws who especially
enjoyed it, said Cooper.
The serving counter for the
holiday desserts in their fami-

trained and -certified mattress specialist
and owner of Bedtime USA in Jacksonville
Beach, can help you find a mattress tai-
lored to your individual preferences so
your winter naps will energize you for the
bustle of the holidays.
Family-owned and operated and cele-
brating four years in business in
Jacksonville Beach, Bedtime USA is your
mattress headquarters. Dave and his staff
have the expertise and inventory you need
to help you find. the right mattress at the
"We are not a chain, vet we are one of
the only stores in northeast Florida and
southeast Georgia that carries such a com-
plete line of mattresses and bedding prod-
ucts, "said Dave, who himself has more
than 20 years of experience in the business
and has lived at the Beaches for seven
years. "We have more than 40 mattresses
on display, and we'll help you find the one
that's just right for you and your budget!"
No matter what type of mattress you're
looking for, Bedtime USA most likely has it.
The list of brand-name products available
is impressive, including mattresses by
Tempur-Pedic, Simmons, Englander,
Restonic, Spring Air, Chattam & Wells, and
King Koil and futons by Adonis Furniture
and Night and Day Furniture.
"We carry all seven models of the popu-
lar Tempur-Pedic brand including the
GrandBed and the RhapsodyBed often
described as the "Cadillac" of mattresses
because of its extravagant design and
unsurpassed luxury," said Dave. "No mat-

natural latex mattress, a visco-elastic mem- Bedtime USA o
orv foam mattress, a traditional inner- at the beach-s
spring mattress or any combination of mattresses, adji
these, we carry it," said Dave. Jacksonville Bea
The importance of a good night's sleep
becomes apparent when Dave reminds customers that
they'll spend one third of their lives in bed. "So at Bedtime
USA customer comfort is our no. 1 priority comfort in a
mattress and comfort in its price," he said.
"Because we have so many mattresses in our inventory, we
can offer our customers the most comfortable mattress avail-
able in the most comfortable price range for them," he
added. "For example, we have twin sets for as low as $199.95
and queen sets for as low as $299.95."
Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the
lowest price the manufacturer allows, which means twin
Tempur-Pedic mattresses start as low as $699.
But Bedtime USA has more than the mattress of your
dreams ipun intended). "We also carry 20 different models
of adjustable beds plus. bed ftames,.-platform-type beds,,
headboards, tutons, futon covers, pillows, bolsters, bed pads,'
mattress protectors and even some 'beachy' decorative
items," said Dave.

USA can help. "We carry Adonis Furniture and Night and
Day Furniture, which manufacture some of the best futons
-available," Dave said. "They offer 80 different designs of
futons, and we showcase 15 models in our store, not to
mention more than 300 fabric samples from SIS Fabrics, a
leader in designer furniture upholstery." Plus, Bedtime USA

help them make sound purchasing decisions."
Bedtime USA also offers free delivery throughout the

"I have a kid. It's hard

Stachitas leads Nease back to Miami
for state title
By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
You could hear a pin drop
in the Tallahassee Lincoln
stands as Ted Stachitas raced
93 yards to paydirt early in
the fourth quarter of Friday's
Class 4A state semifinal game
at Gene Cox Stadium.
Hunter Bates said he heard

Sounds of silence in the
state playoffs. Oh, what a feel-
"Yeah, they were pretty
quiet," said Bates, after he
broke a middle return to the
outside to stake visiting Nease
High to a 21-0 first half lead.
"It was awesome."
The top-ranked Panthers
used a pair of crowd-silencing
TD runs from Stachitas and
two equally-effective returns
from Bates and Mario Butler
to oust host and unranked
Lincoln 35-21 Friday night.
The victory, Nease's 23rd in

Football is a strange game. You

all the more reason fans in this town
should have filled the seats for the
ACC Championship game Saturday
instead of leaving Alltel arena looking
like it was quarantined.
Georgia Tech is virtually a local
team, drawing talent from the
Jacksonville area every year. One of its
most successful alums is Corky Rogers
whose Bolles team just won another
Class A state championship.
And Wake Forest upset Tech with a
style that proved it deserves to be ACC
champion. One might take a step fur-
their and declare the Demon Deacons
a local team. Quarterback Riley
Skinner, just a freshman who plays
like a seasoned vet, is a former Bolles
star. The Bulldogs' family runneth
over with local aristocrats.
And Wake's supreme kicker, Sam
Swank, who virtually beat Tech solo
with his three field goals Saturday, is a
Fletcher High School graduate.
