Oar House's closing
ends Palm Valley era
The Oar House on Mickler
Road bid its customers a final
farewell Saturday, closing the
doors on the 47-year-old busi-
ness and closing another
chapter in the saga of Palm
An outdoor farewell party
Saturday afternoon, featuring
live music, steamed oysters
-and free-flowing libation,
attracted dozens of patrons,
many of whom had frequent-
ed the restaurant and bar for
Rumors about the Oar
House's possible demise were
fueled in recent months by a
"For Sale" sign outside the
one-story structure tucked
among moss-draped oaks
west of State Road A1A.
But with the Atlantic
Ocean about a third of a mile
away, and surrounding land
values approximating those
further north, it was only a
matter of time before this
remnant of old Palm Valley.
would give way to the pres-
sures of upscale development.
The 2-1/2-acre property,
listed for sale at $2.995 mil-
lion, has an assessed valua-
tion of $187,000, according
to the St. Johns County
Property Appraiser's Web site.
Listing broker Chris Beladi
said Tuesday the property has
not been sold.
Because the site is zoned
commercial, it cannot be
used for condominiums or
apartments. Beladi said, how-
ever, that it could accommo-
date retail shops with living
space on an upper floor.
At Saturday's party to say
good-bye to the Oar House,
those attending had a variety
of reactions-to the shutdown.
"I'm goin' fishing, said
Jason Bass, the most recent
Oar House manager.
"I'll probably go to the
[American] Legion," said
Edmond Granger, a 15-year
Dominic Paracano, whose
domicile is just across the
street from the restaurant,
said things won't be the same
without the Oar House.

St. Johns County staff part of post-election shake-up
by LAURA FOWLER
Ever since Tom Manuel and
Ron Sanchez took their seats on
the St. Johns County
Commission in November,
many things have been shaken
up within the county espe-
cially the staff.
Several veteran staff members
resigned or retired from their
positions, forcing the county to*
rearrange some departments
and fill in the gaps with tempo-
The most recent example is
the resignation of Dan Weimer,
director of parks and recreation,
who left the week after
Former Parks and Operations
Manager Troy Blevins, who
worked as Weimer's assistant,
has been selected as interim
director, and two other staff
members within the depart-
ment have been assigned posi-
tions as administrative man-
"We're trying to do the best
we can do with what we've
got," Blevins said in an inter-
view last week.
"It's run very smooth, but
we're only a couple of weeks
Before Weimer's resignation,
County Administrator Ben
Adams ended his nine years
with the county when he
retired in December, ahead of
schedule. Assistant County
Administrator Ted Zebrowsky
resigned at the same time.
The County Commission
found a quick replacement for
Adams in Wally Kropacek, long-
time friend and former boss of
Commission Chair Ben Rich.
And for the job of assistant
administrator, Joe Vonasek, for-
mer director of the office of
budget management, accepted
an invitation to return to the
Vonasek said Tuesday that he
left his position as budget direc-
tor more than two years ago
because he didn't see eye-to-eye
with Adams, who was his boss
at the time.
He said Adams' retirement
didn't prompt him to come
looking for another job with St.
Johns County, but it aided in
his decision to accept the job
"It does not make any sense
coming back into a position
where you have differences of
opinion," Vonasek said.
Another familiar face can be
seen roaming the halls of the
county administration building
as a new addition to staff: that
of Jerry Cameron.
Cameron, former commis-
sioner aide to Rich, took a job as
head of special projects for the
Cameron said Adams invited
him to take the administrative
position when he announced
"When he made the decision
that he was going to leave... he
thought it would be a good
time to move me in there,"
As head of special projects,
Cameron said he will work on
any project that the county
administrator or the County
Joe Vonasek Jerry Cameron
Commission deems necessary.
Right now, Cameron said he
has been assigned the task of
improving the efficiency of
He will be working with
Kropacek to eliminate the
duplication of efforts by staff
and to help save money wher-

Although bids for construction of the Ponte
Vedra High School have been delayed, the target
date for the school's opening August 2008 -
"The [school] plans are out in the hands pf a
number of companies," Tim Fprson, executive
director for facilities and operations for the St.
Johns County School District, said Tuesday.
Bids for construction of the school were
advertised Dec. 15 and are scheduled to be
opened Jan. 31, Forson said, which is a delay
from the original date of mid-January. .
"We'll know the low bidder at that time;"
Forson said, adding that the School Board, is
expected to award the bid Feb. 6.
Conveyance of. the donated land, next' to
Davis Park about one mile west of the
Intracoastal Waterway off County Road 210,
also was delayed. Conveyance was to take place
earlier this month.
The item was pulled from a School Board
agenda, Forson said, because the district needed
more time to complete due diligence on the par-
cel, which is the high school site promised to
the School District by the developer of Nocatee.
The school, which is expected to be zoned f~r
Ponte Vedra teens, is still expected to open fdr
the 2008-09 school year, Forson said.

anything except our own processes and plans,"

Two Right Whales were spotted off the coast
of Ponte Vedra Tuesday, where they swam,
played, jumped and showed their tails for an
hour or more.
The whales --one an adult and the other pos-

350 of the endangered species remaining.
Frank Gromling, assistant coordinator fot the
Marifeland Right Whale Survey Project, will
talk about Right Whales at 11 a.m. Thursday at
the Palm Valley Senior Center, 148 Canal Blvd.,
There is no charge, and the public is invited.
Giomling, author of "Frank's Whales" and
founder of the book's publishing company, will
talk about how and where the whales can be

KING CELEBRATION ROCKS
photo by CHUCK
The Rev. Jeffrey Witt, pastor at Palm Valley Bal
Church, reads from the Bible Monday at the Ma
Luther King Jr. celebration in Jacksonville Beac
by CHUCK ADAMS
The mood ranged from loud and joyous to
quiet and somber Monday when an ecumeni-
cal gathering of preachers, singers, bell-
ringers and congregation members honored
the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King
King was 39 when he was assassinated in
Memphis April 4, 1968.
"A Day of Remembering and Celebrating
the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." was
held at St. Paul's By-The-Sea Episcopal
Church, Jacksonville Beach.
The service was cosponsored by St. Andrew
AME (African Methodist Episcopal) Church,
also of Jacksonville Beach.
"We are here to celebrate the birth
and short life of Dr. King," said Myrtle
Collins of St. Andrew AME.
"The years following his death equal
his life span," she said.
"It's a wonderful opportunity to gath-
er with our brothers and sisters from
across Jacksonville and the Beaches area
to celebrate [King's birthday]," said the
Rev. Penny Pfab, pastor of St. Paul's.
Keynote speaker Bishop George
Davis, senior pastor of Faith Christian
Center of Arlington, said he was happy
to see the King celebration continue for
its fourth year at St. Paul's:
"This is an occasion I'm extremely
excited to see this community support
Sand put forth year after year," Davis
S"Dr. King's legacy and -the life he
.4:2 lived, the dream he had in his heart is
one that, I believe, all of us, as
Americans, must continue to put forth.
"Whether it's our soldiers in Iraq or
"' Afghanistan or those police officers
patrolling the streets, the underlying
heartbeat of our soldiers, as well as Dr.
King, is that every human being has a
right to be free.
"I think that's important for us to
remember, during these times we live
today. And that we can indeed live in a
country like America, where freedom is
0 made available to all."
Among those taking part in the serv-
ice was the Rev. Jeffrey Witt, senior pas-
tor of Palm Valley Baptist Church, who'
gave a Scripture reading.
ADAMS Also, the Rev. Michael Johnson from
ptist New Community Baptist Church,
irtin Atlantic Beach, gave the invocation,
:h. and Bishop Percy Golden from The
Revival Center of Atlantic Beach gave a
prayer of reconciliation.
Jacksonville Beach city council member
Steve Hartkemeyer offered greetings.
Davis said he couldn't wait to get to heav-
en if the music performed at the service were
any indication of what is to come.
The music was provided by, among others,
the Hope Chapel Mass Choir of Jacksonville,
the combined St. Andrew and St. Paul's
church choirs, Praise Team of Faith Christian
Center and Baton Rouge songstress Kelly
The offering taken at the event will benefit
the Hope Chapel Mass Choir, Jacksonville

Landscaping and a new sidewalk are to
be added to the eastern portion of South
Beach Parkway between Jacksonville Drive
and J. Turner Butler Boulevard.
An appropriation of $6,000 was to be
considered last night by the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA) for Prosser
Hallock Inc. to proceed with the project
The former sidewalk was removed dur-
ing the construction of the
Marsh Landing Parkway/South
Beach Parkway intersection S 4-
"The severe slope of the land-
scaped berm adjacent to South (

Center would have required cut-

structing an expensive retaining

sidewalk," Planning and
Development Director Steve
Lindorff said in his staff recom-
"Right now, pedestrians and
bicyclists have to go into the
shopping center parking lot to
continue south on this side of
South Beach Parkway."
Construction of the sidewalk,
the regrade of the berm and the \I
re-landscaping are to be completed as a
single project in conjunction with land-
scaping of the shopping center.
The CRA is expected to fund the design,
acquisition of a construction easement
and sidewalk installation. A cost sharing
plan will be devel-
oped for the land-
scaping once the
design and cost esti-
mate are complete.
The installation of
the sidewalk will
complete the system in this portion of the.

Choice not a privacy matter
To the editor:
Next Monday, Jan. 22 marks
the 34th anniversary of Roe v.
Wade, when our Supreme Court
held that women have a
Constitutional right to privacy,
and that includes abortion.
The word "abortion" is not
found anywhere in the
Constitution. Interestingly, the
word "privacy" is also totally
absent. Yet, the Court said that a
Constitutional right to.privacy
is found "emanating from a
penumbra" of the liberty clause

these verbal gymnastics are a
perfect example of "judicial
activism" which simply means
that the Supreme Court started
with the political conclusion
they wanted and blatantly
twisted the Constitution to
make it fit. In short, the majori-
ty of judges who decided the.
case had a political agenda and
manipulated our Constitution.
Notwithstanding the lack of
legal justification for the deci-
sion in Roe v. Wade one has to
ask oneself why should any
right to privacy allow an expec-
tant mother to abort her baby.
Indeed, all rights under the
Constitution have limits and
there are many things which
occur in private that the law
does not allow. Before society
can say that someone's right to
participate in a certain activity is
derived from his or her right to
privacy, it must first answer the
question, "The privacy to do

It started out as a collective
knee-jerk reaction from

about how far it is from Rabun

and worked most of his adult
life. But it was something they
wanted to do.
So they telephoned their

But not the least bitter or

Shepherd became the first
American astronaut in space.
Gary was amazed that a rocket
could light off and return to
earth with a man inside. He
wanted to be there.
The very next year, he was in
Florida working with RCA,
which had a contract with the.
Air Force, later with NASA, to
help track space shots. A year
and a half later, he ended up
with permanent assignments
at the Kennedy Space Center.
He's been there ever since.
Ask him about the most
memorable launch, and he
doesn't hesitate: It was the
space shuttle Challenger that
exploded after liftoff on Jan.
28, 1986. Gary saw the disaster
as a flat line on his computer
screen. Ask him about the
most satisfying launch and he
says: "Getting back on track

appendages containing lots of

ripen and are shed, thereby
making a berry bad mess of

Concerning tree choice, a
generally unsatisfactory pick,
I believe, is the sycamore tree.
When mature, it bears leaves
that are nearly as big as a
medium dinner plate. They
drop off in the fall and need
to be raked up so as not to
smother the lawn and/or
flower gardens, etc. I suspect
that certain Beaches home-
owners are sick of their
sycamores. In fact, a neighbor
of mine eventually got tired
of cleaning upithe leaves and,
before the advent of tree
removal rules, had his speci-
men eliminated. That
sycamore littered no more.
The trees distributed by Jax'
Beach seem like fine selec-
tions for this area. There are
scads of crape myrtles in
yards, and they really dress up
the countryside as they
bloom. When I first moved
here from New Jersey, even
though that's the Garden

assumed that its name started
with "grape" and thought,

First-Time Home Buyers: What to know before you buy
by Charles J. Kovaleski
This year's softening Florida
real estate market may signal
some good news for first-time
home buyers, many of 'whomi
ikivebei shuit 'ut bf'thf t cal1
real estate market due to sky-
high home prices.
But now, with more invento-
ry on the market, lower fixed-
rate mortgages and sellers cut-
ting their asking prices, first-
time home buyers are starting
to emerge from their rental
properties in search of a home
of their own.
This renewed interest among
first-time buyers is a marked
change from earlier this year
when the percentage of first-
time buyers dropped to 36 per-
cent, its lowest level since 1987,
according to the National
Association of Realtors.
The surge in first-time buyer
activity is expected to continue
into the new year, according to
real estate experts..If you are
one of the millions of would-be
home owners, remember that
buying a home is a complicated
process that is fraught with pit-
falls for those with little experi-.
Here's how to avoid some of
the most common errors made
by first-time homeowners:
Set a budget and stick to it.
With housing prices at histori-
cally high levels, it's easy to see
how first-time home buyers can
get caught up in overspending.
Mortgage lenders typically
won't allow monthly housing
expenses to be more than one-
third of a buyer's household
monthly gross income, so your
budget is largely pre-deter-
mined by your paycheck stub.
Costs associated with buying a
new home also add to the
monthly mortgage payments,
A down payment-any-
where from 5 percent to 20 per-
cent of the home's purchase.
SProperty taxes, which aver-
age around 1.5 percent to 2 per-
cent of a home's purchase price.
Homeowners' insurance and
private mortgage insurance
(PMI), which is required by
lenders if your down payment
is less than 20 percent of the
SFees imposed for special tax
districts, also known as special
assessments (SAs) or special
service areas (SSAs), which are
becoming more common in
Closing costs, which include
points and other fees charged
by the lender and can add up to
3 percent of the amount you
borrow; title insurance, which
can range from a few hundred
dollars to more than a thou-
sand, depending on the pur-
chase price of your home;
inspections, $200 to $500; and
other miscellaneous fees.
Maintenance. Varies year to

1 percent of the purchase price

approval for a mortgage in
hand. Pre-approval means
assembling all of the documen-
tation you need for a mortgage
commitment; once a home is
found, the only thing left to do
is get an appraisal. At this
point, you also need to deter-
mine which type of mortgage
makes sense for you: Fixed-rate
or adjustable-rate? 15-year or
30-year? Once you've
researched all of the options,
consult your real estate attorney
to discuss those options until
you are comfortable in making
Don't get duped. First-time
buyers are especially vulnerable
to no-down-payment loans,
since they don't have equity
from an existing home they can
use. In fact, nearly half of first-
time buyers bought their home
with no money down, accord-
ing to a recent National
Association of Realtors survey.
Many so-called "no-down-pay-
ment loans" are money-making
scams for unsuspecting buyers.
If you plan to use a down pay-
ment assistance program, work
with well-known entities such
as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,
the governmental agencies that
buy mortgages and package
them as investments. The pro-
grams generally offer assistance
to income-eligible families and
first-time home buyers who
have with at least $1,000 saved.
Assemble your team. Once
you are pre-approved for a loan,

el" yBtlU:'wifi the:'prodess.
Contact an attorney who spe-
cializes in residential real estate,
and begin your search for a real
estate agent, inspector, apprais-
er and surveyor. Get recommen-
dations from friends, co-work-
ers and others not connected
with the deal. Interview several
and pick one whom you have
confidence in who has dealt in
the county where you are look-
ing to buy. Ask for references. In
each instance, ask what the fees
are and what specific services
they cover.. Your real estate
attorney will head up your real-
estate team-reviewing your
contract, ensuring all provi-
sions and contingencies are in
your best interest, preparing or
reviewing the closing statement
and other closing documents,
and letting you know about
seller contingencies that affect
Don't be in a hurry. One of
the biggest mistakes a first-time
home buyer can make is acting
on impulse. Buying a home
should be an ongoing process
and not something you do in
two weeks. Look at many
homes, including an assort-
ment of types of homes. Talk to
the neighbors. Visit the neigh-
borhood at various times of the

called a "contract for purchase
and sale."; Once the contract is
signed, you're legally bound to
the terms. The document spells
out the terms and conditions of
the purchase-from the pur-
chase price all the way down to
who pays the utilities until you
take possession of the house.
The contract is also the blue-
print or road map for the clos-
ing.on the property if an issue
is not spelled out in the con-
tract, then it's not likely it will
be addressed at the closing.
However, don't think the pre-
printed terms of the contract
are written in stone. Rather, it's
how you and the seller begin
the process of negotiating the
terms of the contract that both
of you will have to live with.
Make sure you understand and
are comfortable with all aspects
of the contract-you will likely
be living with it for a long time.

Matyi said about 95 per-

PV resident shares her 'seasonal'
recipes from Florida panhandle
Photo by KATHY NICOLETTI
Cookbook author Jo Manning has included more than 200
additional recipes in the revised edition "Seasonal Florida."
by KATHY NICOLETTI
"Seasonal Florida" is a
cookbook that tells the story
of "food that brings you back
together," according to its
author, Jo McDonald
Manning, a part-time resi-
dent of Ponte Vedra Beach.
Manning is a fifth-genera-
tion Floridian whose ances-
tors settled in Florida in
One of 10 children,
Manning grew up in
DeFuniak Springs in the
In the cookbook, she
describes DeFuniak Springs
as a place where the children
had "bicycles, tree forts, and
swimming holes and were
entertained by skeeter hawks
and lightning bugs."
At the turn. of the 20th
century, the town hosted an
annual cultural event, the
Florida Winter Chatauqua.
Manning's memories of
those seasonal events from
her childhood and the deli-
cious food prepared the old-
fashioned way using the best
of what was in season were
the inspiration for the cook-
Encouraged by her hus-
band Wayne, Manning decid-
ed to put together a cook-
book that she said would
"focus on regional foods and
emphasize fresh, local prod-
Researching the original
cookbook involved visits to
archives and museums across
North Florida and collecting
recipes from family, friends,
and restaurants in the
"Seasonal Florida" was first
published in 1994 with
about 350 recipes. The first
three printings of the cook-
book sold close to 15,000
copies, Manning said.
This past October, a newly
revised and reorganized edi-
tion with more than 200
additional recipes was pub-
Manning recounts the fam-
ily or historical background
of many recipes in "Seasonal
Florida," adding that each
recipe has a story behind it.
There are descriptions of
tupelo honey, hearts of palm,
St. Augustine sweets, datil
peppers, perlo, scupper-
nongs, sand pears and other
foods that have a unique
place in North Florida cook-
Photographs of Manning's
family are featured through-
out the book, providing faces
to match the names of many
of the people mentioned.
Additional photographs of
scenes and people give any-
one looking at the book a
glimpse of the way Florida
was decades ago and the way
it is today.
The recipes are organized
in chapters with titles that
give a hint of what is to
come such as Old Timey
Favorites; Seafood, Fishes,
and Pond Critters; Southern
Garden Vegetables and
Swamp Cabbage; Perlos, Rice
dishes and Pasta; Finger
Lickin, Down South
Barbecue; and Desserts and
Some of the recipes fea-
tured are Country Ham and
Red Eye Gravy, Corn and
Tomatoes, Old Florida
Chicken Salad, Minorcan
Deviled Crab, Skillet Squash,
St. Augustine Sweets, Red
Beans and Rice, and
Granny's Banana Pudding,
Equally as interesting as
the recipes are Manning's,
descriptions of cooking in
North Florida, traveling the
"backroads," sample menus,
and lists of food festivals,
farmers markets, and farms
for picking your own pro-
duce and fruit.

Beach, Bedtime USA is your mattress head-
quarters. Dave and his staff have the expert- '
ise and inventory you need to help you find
the right mattress at the right price.
"We are not a chain, yet we are one of the
only stores in northeast Florida and south-
east Georgia that carries such a complete
line of mattresses and bedding products,"
said Dave, who himself has more than 20
years of experience in the business and has
lived at the Beaches for eight years. "We

"We carry all seven models of the popular
Tempur-Pedic brantl including the

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

est price the manufacturer allows, which means queen

and that's sleeping at the beach on one of the top-of-the-line
stable beds and futons available at Bedtime USA in

variety, according to Dave. "We also provide a level of per-
sonalized customer service not found in many larger chains
and that makes us different. At Bedtime USA we take care
of our customers, work with them one on one and help them
make sound purchasing decisions."
Bedtime USA also offers free delivery throughout the
Greater Jacksonville area on a schedule convenient for cus-
tomers and their schedules. Some retailers offer a three-hour

but we also give them a call when the delivery truck leaves
the store," said Dave.

New school upgrade
made for the shade
by CHUCK ADAMS
For years the Parent Teacher

with the start of a new year
comes the latest installment of
Over the winter holiday,
poles that will hold a protec-
tive cover were installed
around the two primary ele-
ments of Ocean Palms' back
playground: a climb-on with a
wooden ramp that's accessible
to handicapped children and a
"We wanted to impact our
playground with some sort of
shade covering because of the
sun and the protection for the
children," said PTO President
Trish Shilling, who added that
the covering may possibly go
up before the end of the
"We've got big sails, of teal
color, coming from Africa,"
The company Ocean Palms
has contracted with,
Innovative Shade, St.
Augustine, uses a supplier in
Africa because the company's
sails offer the most protection
from ultraviolet rays of the sun
and are durable, said Shilling.
The sails also can be taken
down in bad weather and
In order to get the most bang
for their buck, Shilling said,
the PTO decided to cover the
main playground behind the
school all at once as opposed
to covering just a portion of it
along with another portion of
one of the smaller play-
In addition to the main play-
ground, Ocean Palms has two
smaller play areas, one near
the kindergarten classrooms
and the other at the front of
the school. That one is for pre-
k and kindergarten alike.
Shilling said more money
will be budgeted at the end of
the year to finish the project
on the other two playgrounds
at Ocean Palms.
"We hopefully will leave
this as a phased approach,"
"We'd like to provide them
[the other two playgrounds]
some shade, because those are
the little guys," said Shilling.
Rubber padding will be put
around the base of each pole,
similar to the precaution taken
with basketball posts, to pro-
tect the! children "in case
they're inning and not pay-
ing attention to where they're
going," said Shilling.

Students at Rawlings
Elementary School are gearing
up for a Feb. 9 "Jump Rope for
Heart" jump-a-thon to raise
money for the American Heart
The groundwork for the
event was laid Friday at the
Ponte Vedra Beach elementary
school by Tami Cates of the
AHA and the Wave Jumpers
jump rope team from St. Paul's
Catholic School in Jacksonville
Jump Rope for Heart, which
has been an AHA program for
more than 50 years, was intro-
duced at Rawlings five years
ago by Robyn Harden, the
school's physical education
Rawlings rope jumpers have
raised $117,000 over that peri-
od, including $17,000 last year.
This year's goal is $18,000.
The Wave Jumpers, who give
anywhere from 10 to 20 school
performances for the American
Heart Association during the
course of the year, did two
assemblies for Rawlings stu-
At the second session, for all
third graders and half the
fourth-grade class, the
Rawlings students who jumped
on stage were third-grader
Emily Tronti and fourth-
graders Christian Bowlus and
"These children, over the
next few weeks, are going to be
practicing the jump rope skills
they've seen today," said Cates.
"They're going to- practice_
them during PE time and
hopefully at home. On Feb. 9,
they're going to have a special
day where they come out as a
whole grade level. All of third
grade, all of fourth and all of
fifth will come out together.
They will have music, and
they're going to show their
jump rope skills."
Harden, whom Cates said
"does a fabulous job," will set.
up different stations where the
students will jump rope.
Each child has taken home a
Jump Rope for Heart envelope,
and the youngsters will be ask-
ing for donations, which will
be tabulated and turned over
to the AHA.
The children, in turn, will
receive thank-you gifts from

Window treatments aside, it is important
to consider the overall safety of your win-
dows. While.child safety should be at the
forefront of your mind, you must also think
about the well-being of your entire family as
well, in case there is an emergency.
Do not paint or nail windows shut under
any circumstances. You must be able to open
the windows in your home in case a situa-
tion calls for an emergency exit.
Make sure all adults and children can
operate the windows quickly if the need aris-
es. If the house is on fire, everyone inside
must know how to make a window exit.
Fixed metal bars and grills may make
your home more secure from the outside, but
are dangerous if they cannot be opened from
the inside. Be sure any security device or win-
dow guard has a quick release mechanism to
facilitate a hurried exit. Train everyone in the
house to operate the locks.
Only install an air conditioner in a sec-
ondary window in a living and sleeping area;
that is, a window that is not necessary for an
exit. An air conditioning unit could impede
escape if it is blocking the only window
opening in a room. Always have at least one
dear path to the outside.
Be aware of all aspects of window and win-
dow covering safety. Remember to ask your-
self the following questions:
Can the majority of the windows in my
home be opened in case of an emergency?

Panthers fall to Vikings in MLK tourney
Nease appeals Beech's
five-week suspension 3P
By ROBERT DeANGELO
The struggle goes on for

In Monday's Martin Luther
King, Jr. Tournament at Forrest
High School, the Panthers put
together one of their most
solid efforts on the court, only
to fall 44-40 in the closing sec-
onds to Raines.

points each. Christian Dennis

Late in the fourth, a pair of
free throws by Wilson tied it

Forced to foul to stop the
clock, the Panthers could pull
no closer as the game drew to
"It's been tough to go from
sport to sport this season," said
senior forward Kyle Timpane,
describing;the transition from
football to basketball.
"Going from a sport where
we haven't lost four games in
two years to one where we
lose four games in two weeks
it's just so different."'
Early-season struggles were
somewhat attributed to the
absence of many football play-
ers from the varsity hoops
squad. Timpane, Wilson,
Dennis, Quinton Huggins and
Ted Stachitas were busy chas-.
ing another state title on the

There have been other diffi-
culties this season as well.
Coach Bud Beech is current-
ly appealing a five-week sus-
pension and $550 fine
incurred as a result of an inci-
dent in Nease's game against
Flagler Palm Coast Jan. 5.
In the second quarter of
that game, Beech was whistled
for a technical foul after argu-
ing an over-and-back call
against his team. He was hit
with a second technical for
continuing the argument (an
automatic ejection from the
game), but objects to some of
what was in a referee's report
of the incident.

claim that Beech used objec-
tionable language and may

The FHSAA may also look
into that matter since
Stachitas wasn't given a warn-

The Panthers were slated to

then return home to host
Palatka on Thursday.

Another year, another St. Johns River

The Panthers edged Fleming Island 3-2 last'
Thursday night to earn their third consecutive
title in the three-year history of
the conference. -
Nease got off to a great start
when senior Kristin Hoover
scored on the first shot of the
game in the second minute of
play. The blast came from about
15 yards in front of the net
after Hoover weaved through a
trio of Fleming Island defend-

Nease increased its advantage to three goals
about eight minutes after the break when jun-
ior Kasey Eckstein launched a left-footed rocket
from around 18 yards out that arched over
Federschmidt's head and into the upper left
corner of the net.
About 25 minutes into the second half,
Nease was whistled for a foul in the box, set-
ting up Fleming Island's Jane Buzzell for a
penalty kick. Buzzell converted the try, getting
the ball past Panthers backup keeper Emily
Whidby, who had replaced starter Catherine
O'Donnell a few minutes earlier.
Approximately six minutes later, the Golden
Eagles knotted the score when Emily Pierce
when she pounded on a rebound after a corner
kick and buried it into the left side of the net.
With another SJRAC championship under
their belts, the Panthers turn their attention to
this week's District 5-4A championships taking
place at St. Augustine.
With a 19-1-4 record, Nease
l earned a first-round bye and is
set to take on the winner of the
.,,. Pedro Menendez-Palatka match
Wednesday in the semifinals.
The district final is scheduled
for Friday at 7 p.m.
The Panthers are gunning for
a third consecutive Class 4A
state title under head coach
Dave Silverberg. Nease has won
three state championships in
the past five years.
ISLE 2 While this year's squad may
not be as potent as in previous
3 seasons, it is anchored by a stel-
lar defense and superb goal-
keeping by O'Donnell. Silverberg has said a lot
has to go right to make it to the state finals,
but the team appears to be in good shape in
terms of injuries.
Last month's Michelle Akers Tournament in
Orlando allowed Silverberg to assess the
Panthers against top-flight competition. Nease

Some coaches get another year to win or else
At this time of year when
football coaches are
playing fruit basket
turnover many are getting
the gate for not winning
enough, not thrilling the fans,
bad breath or any excuse the
owners can think of it was
nice to see a change.
The New York Giants are
bringing back Tom Coughlin
as head coach to try it again
in 2007. Team owner John
Mara is giving the old Jaguar
one more season. Wish him
success or else.
Actually Mara has a partner,
or co-owner if you will, in
Jonathan Tisch. That's a smart
way to do business in the
NFL. With two owners, one
can always say, "F didn't want
to fire (insert name), but my
It's like having two wardens
to pull the switch and each
can deny doing it.
Great things were expected
this season from the Giants,
who finished 11-5 last year
and had fans practically pack-
ing for Super Bowl XLI in
Alas, the Giants were

due to budgetary concerns.
Injuries plagued Coughlin
and the Giants during the reg-
ular season, so maybe Mara
and Tisch took that into con-
sideration when they decided
to bring the coach back for
The easy thing these days is
to fire the coach or the assis-
tants ... or everybody with a
whistle and a clipboard.
Owners, for the most part,
show little loyalty to the very

Coughlin knows he's on the
hot seat with the New York
Giants. By extending,his con-
tract only one year, the coach
doesn't have to wonder where
he stands. He knows. The
message is, Win in 2007 or
look for a soft place to land.
Ironically, the job Coughlin
was booted from by Jaguars
owner Wayne Weaver is now
seemingly in a similarly pre-
carious situation. How much
leeway does Jack Del Rio
have? Is it playoffs or hit the
highway next season?
The clean-out of several
assistants by Del Rio since sea-
son's end tells a story. If Mr.
Weaver hasn't said so in so
many words, the picture of a
sword hanging over Jack's
handsome head is clear to just
about everybody anyway.
That's the way it is in foot-
ball. But owners would do
well to remember that ulti-
mately it's the players who
win and lose games, not nec-
essarily the coaches.

FOREHAND TIPS: Always pull the racquet back as soon as the
ball is approaching your forehand side. Your backswing should
come from the shoulders, not the arm.
If you have to hit a running forehand, push your momentunmi
up from the foot opposite to your forehand side. For example,
use your left foot to lean into a ball hit to your right side. Try to
hit the ball on the sweet spot (middle area) of the racquet. This
gives you a solid forehand by maximizing the efficiency of the
Using a two-handed forehand is quite difficult. If you're a
beginner, learn the one-handed approach for more control and
power. Leave the two-handed technique for your backhand.
