Rich says Vision


group 'incapable'


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
St. Johns Vision took a bit of
a beating from two county
commissioners Tuesday, but its
director nonetheless walked
away with a commitment for
funding.
The St., Johns County
Commission agreed to fund up
to $50,000 for St. Johns Vision,
which was formed in 2002 to
identify and resolve issues that
may impact the county in the
next 20 years.
"It's become, in'my opinion,
just a group that is incapable of
delivering a working product
for this board to be able to con-
sider," County Commission
chair Ben Rich told Vision's
director, Bonnie.Barnes.
"The county's been pouring
money into this [the Vision]
ever since [its inception.]"
Rich said.
Rich said his reluctance to
continue funding the organiza-
tion should not reflect on its
director.
He said Barnes is hard work-
ing and a "good person," but
the Vision "is just not some-
thing that's going to produce."
Commissioner Tom Manuel
shared Rich's concerns but said
the previous commission
already budgeted. up to
$50,000 this year to match,
dollar-for-ddllar, any money
raised by the Vision.
Barnes said the Vision has
raised about $13,000 since the
beginning of this fiscal year,
which:started in October.
Manuel said he would agree
to give Barnes that funding,
which was promised in April,
"but with no ongoing commit-

ljn ~l?~r;M wr ,)W^ ,lf,.tv ... ..


ments beyond that until we see
a little .more meat on the
bone."
In February, Barnes replaced
Barbara Spaulding who was
fired from the director's posi-
tion in August 2005.
In her year as director,
Barnes said, the Vision has
made many accomplishments,
one of which is a Web site list-
ing volunteer opportunities in
St. Johns County.
In an interview after the
meeting, Barnes said she has
met with community groups
all over the county about 30
times.
"The Vision has done a lot
this year," she said.
Since becoming director,
Barnes said she has focused her
efforts on identifying the goals
of those community groups
and finding a way to measure
whether those goals are being
achieved.
"It's very difficult to show an
accomplishment," Barnes said.
For example, Jacksonville
Community Council Inc.
(JCCI) recently published its
Quality of Life Progress Report,
which measures the city's suc-
cesses and failures in key areas
of importance identified by cit-
izens.
"That kind of measurement
system would greatly help St.
Johns County," Barnes said,
but it would take three to six
months to develop that sys-
tem.
Barnes said another impor-
tant aspect in the Vision
process is educating and com-
municating with the public.

Weekend beach-walkers
may have seen some of the
sea life that were swept
ashore, such as the cannon-
ball jellyfish (above) at Ponte
Vedra Beach. For centuries,
Asian peoples have eaten
cannonball jellyfish.
Purchased dehydrated, the
jellyfish are soaked
overnight, drained, cut into
thin strips, blanched, mari-
nated then added to salads
or vegetables.

Bryce Mullenix, 6, of Ponte
Vedra Beach finds open field
Saturday during a flag foot-
ball game at Davis Park.


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Alisa Arnold's friends are
looking forward to watching
TV with her Thursday to see
her win big on TV's "Price is
Right."
Arnold won a 2007 automo-
bile when she appeared on the
Bob Barker-hosted show that
was taped Dec. 6 at Television
City in Burbank, Calif.
To celebrate Arnold's con-
sumer savvy success, her friend
Holly McKay is hosting a party
with 20 of the contestant's
friends to watch the morning
show at McKay's home in the
Jacksonville Beach subdivision
of Riptide.
"She's just a good friend. It's
such an exciting thing that
happened to her," McKay said,
explaining why she organized
a party. "I wanted to get people
together to view it."


Arnold was 103rd in line to
get in the studio that seats 350
and was the fifth person to be
named in Barker's famous
"Come on down!" shout to the
audience.
Her $2,100 bid on a curio
cabinet got her the cabinet and
a visit with Barker on stage.
There, in the Lucky 7 game,
she won a 2007 Dodge
Magnum with a retail value of
$24,735.
"I'm jumping around like a
maniac after winning the car,"
she said.
When Arnold hit $1 while
spinning the contestant's
wheel, she won an additional
$1,000 and a place in the
Showcase Showdown, the final
contest with the biggest prizes
on the show.

Coalition cool on member's plan


by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
An ordinance proposal by an
attorney for the Marsh
Landing Homeowners
Association was met with skep-
ticism Monday in a meeting of
the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition.
The proposal, which grew
out of a disagreement Marsh
Landing had with a developer
last year, would require proper-
ty owners to notify neighbor-
hood architectural review
boards of any future construc-
tion plans before receiving any
permits from the county:.
Residents in Monday's meet-
ing argued that the proposal
would require neighborhoods
to hire attorneys in order to
stop construction that they
have not approved.
"We're not in the business of
going to court," said Tina
McGough.
According to Barry
Ansbacher, the attorney who
drafted the ordinance, proper-


ty owners would need to prove
that the relevant architectural
review board approved their
construction plans or was at
least notified 30 days in
advance of such plans.
This documentation would
be required before the county
issued any permits. -
Under the current system,
the county requires prior archi-
tectural review board approval
only before the issuance of
building permits.
The current system also
requires the county permitting
department to uphold a review
board's rejection of construc-
tion plans by denying a build-
ing permit, Ansbacher said.
Under Ansbacher's proposal,
the county would be allowed
to issue a permit to a property
owner even if construction
plans were rejected by a private
review board.
"I have a problem with what
you're doing here," said Mary
Kohnke.
Without the county to


enforce their decisions, archi-
tectural review boards are pow-
erless, and would most certain-
ly have to take contractors to
.court in order to stop unap-
proved construction, Kohnke
said.
Ansbacher said the county's
system of upholding decisions
of private boards makes those
boards agencies of the county.
This makes them subject to
Florida's Sunshine laws, which
require open meetings of elect-
ed bodies.
Kohnke said many of the
county private review boards,
.including the Marsh Landing
Homeowners Association,
already operate under
Sunshine.
But Ansbacher said many
don't because it usually
requires them to operate under
the advice and scrutiny of an
attorney,
The proposal is expected to
go before the St. Johns County
Commission for a workshop
March 6.

Remember that St. IY.
Augustine murder trial over
the summer that sentenced !-
Justin Barber to life in prison
for killing his wife April on
the Guana reserve beach in 1 ~ '
2002?
Local and national media
outlets provided in-depth
coverage of the trial, but for '.r.
those whose memory is a lit-
tle fuzzy, the February edition of "Reader's Digest" gives a full, chilling
account of events before and during'the trial.
SThe four-page article, "Two Million Reasons for Murder" by Kenneth Miller,
offers a deeper look into the details of the case that may have been left out of
30-second sound bites in the evening news.
For instance, Justin's purchase of a bulletproof chest plate on eBay he
claimed a muggershotShim in the,'lower-chest and hand-before fatally shoot-
ing his wife-was deemed inadmissible, according to the)article: .
So was ia cohierstiidnn between April ai bef and her b ss'in which Apiil said,
"If anything happens to me, suspect foul play," the article said.

Ba-a-a-ack to basics
The St. Johns County Commission, with newly
elected members Tom Manuel and Ron Sanchez,
has focused its efforts on reduced spending with-
in the county. ,i'
Commissioners are scrutinizing everything
from capital improvement projects to the need ';
for more county vehicles, and let it be said that '
there is no shortage of helpful, money-saving
hints from residents.
An excellent suggestion was made at a recent '
meeting of the St. Johns County Civic :
Association Roundtable, when a resident play-
fully suggested the county purchase a few goats.
With as much as.the county spends on main-
taining its medians and right-of-ways, goats would
certainly be a cheaper way of keeping the grass and shrubbery at man-
ageable levels, the resident joked.
Not a bad idea, really. The goats could then be rounded up on the
weekends for a St. Johns County Petting Zoo.

Wade, Jacksonville Beach's animal control officer of 17 years.
Ponte Vedra Beach, serviced by St. Johns County, and Atlantic
Beach have different policies, though both have multiple animal
control officers on staff full time.
Neither will dispatch help to pick up wild or feral animals, such as
snakes, raccoons and armadillos, unless there is an immediate threat
to public safety or they happen.to have a resource that is available.
Animal control officials in Atlantic Beach and St. Johns County cited
time and resource constraints.
While Atlantic Beach does have some outside resources to contact
on occasion when a wild animal, such as a snake or alligator, is a
problem, they generally refer citizens to private companies -

Control, a
Jacksonville-based pri-
vate company, there is a $199 charge for a service call and an addi-
tional charge for each animal that trapped and removed, depending
on the type of animal and situation.
Wade, the animal control officer for Jacksonville Beach, has been
known to even collect a rotting raccoon corpse from a resident's
yard.
In fact, the only animal that the city has declined to collect is a
black bear in south Jacksonville Beach several years ago. In that
instance, a state wildlife officer was called.
Officials picking up wild animals do not need a permit to pick
up wild animals unless they are relocating them, Studivant said.

The Leader's Opinion



Jax treatment


of AB on JEA


center here is


typically rude



Raise your hand if you are surprised by JEA's dismissive
response to Atlantic Beach!
Frankly, there should be no hands in the air as no one
should be surprised that JEA has found it easy to ignore
the city of Atlantic Beach's request for a local payment
site. The city even offered to make space at City Hall to
make it convenient for JEA's customers to make pay-
ments.
JEA's said it had recently implemented new technology
that would prohibit customer service at the Beach.
Has anyone at JEA realized that technology is supposed
to help customers not hurt them?
Again, the answer seems to be a big who cares from the
behemoth agency that serves all of Jacksonville proper
and appears to care less whether its few customers by the
sea are adequately served.
Mayor Don Wolfson said JEA's reply was not quite that
courteous.
"I think that the JEA has really flipped us off," Wolfson
said.
We hope he is not surprised because most at the
Beaches are not surprised by cavalier treatment from
those in public offices in downtown Jacksonville.
Our interests and our concerns are of little import all
that matters is our tax dollars that flow heavily to county
coffers.
JEA officials seem to forget that a state of the art electric
utility has offices in Jacksonville Beach and provides supe-
rior quality service to the rest of the Beaches. Beaches
Energy charges a little more, but the quality, service and
commitment to customers helps offset that factor.
Maybe, it is time for Atlantic Beach to surprise down-
town and explore a switch in electric providers.
Customers would be well served.

America could be

Sa nuch kinder place

if priorities change


To the editor:
I must admit as I began read-
ing {Tom Purcell's 1-19-07
"Democrats are like meter
maids that are overly enthusi-
astic (and thoroughly misguid-
ed)] column I was in total
agreement until you used your
displeasure with the. meter
maid as an excuse to insult
and condemn the Democratic
party. How Republican of you!
Let's oversimplify complex
issues and blame the prob-
lems of poverty, health care,
Social Security and the econo-
my solely on the Democrats.
Apparently, you needed to
express your displeasure over
the loss of Republican seats in
Congress and Senate by plac-
ing blame on the Democratic
party while ignoring that
Republicans have failed as
well.
The American people spoke
in this last election, and I
think the major message was
that our government does not
listen to its people it .has


stopped caring. The govern-
ment is controlled by special
interest groups and most
politicians have secret agen-
das for power and wealth.
I'm approaching my 60th
birthday and as I review the
many elections in which I
have voted, I am disgraced
that this nation which has so
much wealth and resources
has not resolved these prob-
lems in my lifetime. I'm
ashamed that the majority of
Americans no longer care
about the less fortunate citi-
zens and think that funding
projects to the needy will
somehow rob them of their
own personal wealth.
Each day, I wonder if the
billions of dollars spent on
the war in Iraq had been used
in our own country to resolve
these problems and establish
strong security measures,
. what kind of America would
there be today?

Men need women to marry

- more than you can imagine


ll right, ladies, the gig is
up. It's time for all of us
to get married, includ-
ing you.
I refer to The New York
Times' recent report. After sort-
ing through U.S. Census data,
The Times determined that for
the first time in American his-
tory the majority of women,
51 percent, are living without a
husband.
The story tore through the
media like a lightning bolt. A
slew of "I am woman, hear me
roar" stories hit the airwaves.
The storyline was clear:
Women are finally free and
independent now, and the last
thing they need is some sloppy
spouse who leaves his socks
lying all over the house.
Well, Int to that.)! Lodtk,
ladies, deciding not to marry
for your own well-being is one
thing, but it is we you're not
marrying in the process. Your
decision is killing single men -
-literally.
Single men partake in more
risky behavior than married
men. We eat badly, smoke
more, and avoid doctors'
offices. We die younger. And
we're far more likely to wake
up in a pile of crumpled news-
papers still clutching the tequi-
la bottle we began sipping
from two days before.
The reason why is not com-
plicated. We are social animals.
Men and women are very dif-
ferent creatures, but we were
made for each other. The
Catholics call it complemen-
tarity a man and woman, in
union and harmony, round
each other out.
Men need to be rounded
out, too. Take dust. Because
our brains take in less sensory
detail than a woman's, we

don't notice dust the way
women do. Thus, married men
tend to live in orderly, dust-
free homes), -wheseas d-srii
men, says P.J. O'Rourke, clean
up their place about once
every girlfriend.
Though it's not like single
women are faring much better.
The Times article quoted
independent women raving
about their freedom and flexi-
bility. A 32-year-old woman
had already lived with two
boyfriends and said that if she
ever did marry, she might opt
to keep her own place.
Another said she likes being
able to sleep on either side of
the bed.
Oh, just admit it, ladies. You
need us, too. Sleeping next to a
burping, snoring lug of a hus-
band may not be the stuff
dreams are made of, but it sure
beats sleeping alone. And
when you hear a prowler rat-
tling the door knob in the mid-
dle of the night, whom do you
send to investigate? Your cat?
I know The Times is eager for
a more progressive society to
take hold one in which the


stodgy traditional marriage is
kicked to the wayside but
the fact is marriage, imperfect
though it is, is good for us.
Married people are happier,
says the -Pew Research Center.
They enjoy life more they
enjoy sex more, too. Children
raised by married couples fare
better. Society fares better.
Successful civilizations are
built on the stability that tradi-
tional marriage brings.
But despite these simple and
obvious truths, we keep trying
to reinvent our nature. We
keep trying to prove there are
better ways to fulfill our simple
needs keep trying to leave
every option open, so that we
can be "free" and "independ-
ent" forever. A, i
And we end up ale'e..--.-'-"
I can't imagine what old
folks homes will be like 40
years from now. There will be
an unprecedented number of
elderly single people living
alone. No children or grand-
children will visit them no
spouse will care for them. I
wonder if The Times will do a
front-page piece on that trend,
too.
All I know is that my life
would certainly be better if I
woke every morning in a full
home in which my children
are laughing and my wife is
smiling, rather than the way I
often wake now with a
throbbing noggin' because my
single friends and I over-
enjoyed our freedom and inde-
pendence at the pub the night
before.
Like I said, it's time for all of
us to get married.

Spend legal on N police

Spend legal $ on NB police


To the editor:
Neptune Beach has spent $ 93,000 in legal
fees and consultants fighting Walmart and
$50,000 to Jason Cleghorn who is supposes to
have knowledge of the community. If the
fight continues, the legal cost will continue to
grow.
Two of the major reasons everyone is con-
cerned about Walmart moving into Neptune
Beach is traffic and crime. Instead of spending
money on legal fees, maybe we should hire 2
or 3 more policemen to handle those con-

cerns.. The taxes collected from Walmart
would probably cover the ongoing cost of the
newly hired policemen.
This would be a WIN-WIN situation.
The people who want Walmart would have
Walmart, the people who are concerned about
the crime and traffic would have more police-
men to fight crime and control traffic.

Chaplains

are heroes

program

planned


short dictionary defini-
tion of '"hero" is "one
that shows great
courage."
Certainly, Captain Colin P.
Kelly, born in Madison,
Florida, qualifies. He has been
considered the first American
hero of World' War II, and I
heard about him when I was
in high school in the 1940s.
His bomber was badly dam-
aged in combat and was going
down. As pilot, he stayed at
the controls so the other crew
members could bail out and
he perished there. Kelly sacri-
ficed his life to save his crew
and received the
Distinguished Service Cross
posthumously..
Last year, I learned about
the heroic Four Chaplains.
They also died in World War
II. I covered them in a
1/25/06 Leader column that
announced a ceremony hon-
oring them on Feb. 5, 2006 at
Jacksonville Beach American
Legion Post 129. In brief, they
were aboard a troop transport,
the Dorchester, sailing the
dark, icy North Atlantic on
Feb.3, 1943, heading for
Greenland, when the vessel
' was'.torpedoed by an enemy
sbmn marine. ... *
As the Dorchester sank
quickly, the chaplains helped
the troops to abandon ship,
comforting them and distrib-
uting life jackets. The supply
of jackets and needed life rafts
had been reduced by the
attack, so when the stock of
life jackets ran out with all
available rafts and lifeboats
full, the clergymen took their
own jackets off and gave them
to soldiers who had none.
When last seen by survivors,
the chaplains were standing
on deck with arms linked,
offering prayers.
In recognition of their self-
sacrifice, they were posthu-
mously given the Purple Heart
and Distinguished Service
Cross. These kind, brave men
were George L Fox
(Methodist), Alexander D.
Goode (Jewish), John P.
Washington (Roman
Catholic), and Clark V. Poling
(Dutch Reformed).
Yet another World War II
hero I never knew of until
recently is Peter Tomich. He
was Chief Watertender on the
USS Utah, one of the first
ships sunk at Pearl Harbor. An
account of his valiant per-
formance when the ship was
torpedoed reads: "...Tomich
was on duty in a boiler room.
As Utah began to capsize, he
remained below, securing the
boilers (to avoid explosion)
and making sure that other
men escaped and so lost his
life." He was posthumously
awarded the Medal of Honor.
We should never forget
these courageous servicemen.
On Sunday, Feb. 4a, American
Legion Post 129 will help to
make sure we remember the
Four Chaplains by again hold-
ing a memorial ceremony at 2
PM. Post Chaplain Bill Reno
invites the public to attend.

STAFF WRITER
Promoting mixed use devel-
opments, architectural stan-
dards and more on street park-
ing are just some of the ways
planners in Jacksonville Beach
could maintain the viability of
the city's downtown area.
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff said the
urban design firm Glatting
Jackson of Orlando will con-
duct a three day-planning ses-
sion in March to develop a
"vision" to keep the downtown
area moving forward.
"They will be focusing in on
the way things work and the
way things look," Lindorff said
last week. "They are very big
on 'walkability,' walkable com-
munities. They have national
experts in that sort of thing."
City officials last year also
approved a contract with the
the engineering firm GAI
Consultants to complete a
comprehensive engineering
study and design required for a
multiphase road improvement
project in the area.
"They [GAI] are the horizon-
tal guys. They are looking at
the plumbing and Glatting
Jackson will help us develop a
picture of how.we want our
downtown area to look."
The Downtown Revisioning
Project will continue the revi-
talization of the Central
Business District and
Downtown Redevelopment
District.
"The purpose is to kind of
take a look at urban design
issues and other things that
may come up through a
process of three days of what
planners call charets," he said.
"The work will be done under
the auspices of our
Comprehensive Planning con-
tract with Glatting Jackson as a
subcontractor.
The workshops will be held


Tuesday, March 20 through
Thursday, March 22 at City
Hall.
Lindorff said representatives
of the urban design firm plan
to interview "stake holders" in
the downtown area including
the members of the city's
Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
Individual interviews will be
conducted to solicit ideas and
"thoughts on where we should
go," he said.
Lindorff said participation in
the interview process is not
mandatory and is not required
to maintain membership' on
the CRA.
"Your input is valued. We
would like to hear it and they
wold like to hear it. The city
and the agency have come a
long way in our downtown
area," Lindorff told CRA mem-
bers at a meeting this week.
"We think that this firm .can
help us come up with a vision
for going forward."


A i


"'wired for surft


The CRA will consider a
request to fund the study at its
February meeting. Lindorff
said city planners are still try-
ing to determine a cost.
City Manager George Forbes
last month said the project will
also "dovetail nicely" with a
package of planned infrastruc-
ture improvements in the
Downtown Redevelopment
District.
The City Council recently
approved $220,770 in Down
Downtown Tax Increment
Trust Fund monies to increase
the amount of on-street park-
ing, install new storm water
piping and renovate the por-
tion of the seawalk between
Beach Boulevard and 3rd
Avenue North.
"We've come a long way and
we've done a great job but we
are never done," Forbes said.
"We are looking at what do we
want to do in the next five to
10 years."

FROM STAFF
Colleen Dugan and Marla Ball go to the gro-
cery store often very often.
Together they have started Grocery Girls, a
West Beaches-based business that delivers gro-
ceries.
Grocery Girls allows customers to browse
online and select foods and products, according
to a press release.
For first time shoppers the registration process
can take about 40 minutes, the business promis-
es. On subsequent visits to the web site, the pre-
vious selections are saved and registered cus-
tomers can add and delete items as needed.
Dugan said she and her partner, both of
whom have retail experience, think the business
will do well here, noting that similar services
elsewhere in the state have done well.
SThe company charges a $20 service fee plus 10
percent of the total grocery bill. Orders must be
placed two days in advance in order to avoid a
$10 rush fee, according to the business.
Part of the service is unloading groceries,
Dugan said, noting that some customers opt to
give them a house key while others wait at home
for delivery.

girls.biz or call (904) 220-3156.


NB eyes leases
on outdoor dining
The city of Neptune Beach
agreed to review a lease agree-
ment at the next city council
meeting to allow a portion of a
restaurant to have outdoor din-
ing on part of the city's right-of-
way.
Caribbee Key has seven out-
door tables and may add two
more to the outdoor dining
area, according to owner John
Brocato.
Councilor Harriet Pruette
pointed out that the council
needs to look at each case care-
fully and fairly because there F i
will most likely be requests for
outdoor dining by other restau-
rants in the future and parking,
for example, which has not been
considered in this case, will
probably need to be evaluated as
well.
Councilor Fred Lee agreed,
adding that it is important for 249-7321
the council to learn more infor-
mation and possibly have a 108 1st Stre
workshop on outdoor dining so NEPTUNE

Right Whales 'migration south includes our coastline


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

With prime Right Whale
viewing season just around the
corner, Frank Gromling, assis-
tant coordinator for the
Marineland Right Whale
Survey, shared last week what
he called "a mammal that is
very near and dear to my heart"
with a capacity crowd at the
Palm Valley Senior Center.
Gromling, in putting the size
of the Right Whale in perspec-
tive, elicited a gasp when he
said an adult would fill the
room in which they were sit-
ting. As he spoke about what
he called one of the most
endangered animals in the
ocean, Gromling emphasized
that anyone who finds himself
in proximity to a Right Whale,
either while swimming, surf-
ing, in a boat or on a plane,
needs to get at least 500 yards
away. That's the safety distance
mandated by the federal gov-
ernment. Fines for getting too
close can be as much as
$10,000, as well as confiscation
of boat or airplane.
Gromling said there are more
sightings of Right Whales in
February than in any other
month. Viewirgs can be
expected through March.


Gromling said 350 Right
Whales exist. While in this
neighborhood, they are moni-
tored by volunteers under the
aegis of his project, which sci-
entists includes of Woods Hole,
Marineland of Florida and
Marine Resources Council.
Marine Resources Council
started the volunteer sighting
network in 1995. The network
consists of 170 private citizens
in St. Johns, Flagler and Volusia
counties. They look for whales
from shore, using long-lensed
cameras, and from above, using
a light plane.
Gromling shared a variety of
facts about the Right Whales,
which can be as long 50 feet.
and weigh as much as 60 tons.
Calves are 15 feet at birth and
weigh one ton. They can live
longer than 60 years. Females
are slightly larger than males.
The calving interval is three to
five years.j
The crowd chuckled after
Gromling said each birth is sin-
gle, then added, "If you were a
female Right Whale, would you
want to give birth to more than
one?"
The Right Whale, principally
pregnant females but with a
few adolescents and some
adults, migrates each winter
from the waters off the coast of
southeast Canada and New


England to the northeast coast
of Florida to deliver their
calves, which are raised in area
waters for two or three months.
The mothers take their off-
spring back north and "intro-
duce them to the world of
being a Right Whale," said
Gromling.
He said the only known calv-
ing ground is from southeast
Georgia to Cape Canaveral,
which the federal government
has established as a Critical
Habitat.
Gromling followed his infor-
mational slide show, "Right
Whales in Florida Waters,"
with two video pieces.
The first, produced by Turner
Broadcasting, was about
Gromling's survey project. The
other was footage of Right
Whales that he had filmed.
There are three species of
Right Whales, the others being
the Southern Right Whale,
indigenous to the coasts of
South America, Africa, New
Zealand and Australia; and the
Pacific Right Whale, to be
found off the coast of Alaska.
Once as many as 100,000, the
Right Whale once numbered
fewer than 100 in 1935, when
federal protection laws were
enacted.
"They'd .been whaled out,
they'd been hunted to death,"


said Gromling.
The current number is 350,
but scientists say it could be up
to 400, he said. The Pacific
Right Whale numbered 400 in
1935 but now has as many as
5,000.
The birth rate in 1994, he
said, was nine. In 2001 it was
31. Last year it was 19.
Mortality rate remains high. As
many as four calves are killed a
year. And more than 50 percent
of deaths, Gromling said, are
human-induced by, for
instance, ships striking them,
entanglement in fishing gear,
biotoxins and pollutants.
"Keep in mind thatthese ani-
mals are literally millions of
years old and ships aren't,"
said Gromling, who said pro-
peller protectors are available,
but shipbuilders feel that
restricts operations.
In response to one question,
Gromling said Right Whales are
dangerous to humans only in
instances where a mother' is
protecting her calf.
He noted that the Navy has
started limiting sonar usage as
ship and submarines exist their
ports to avoid any possibility of
damaging whales, though no
damage has been shown.

Under spell of intoxicating computer


Sisters teach souffle


classes in St. Aug.


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
Afew years ago while liv-
ing in London, Ponte
Vedra Beach resident
Valerie Wright had the
opportunity to study at the
prestigious Le Cordon Bleu
Culinary School.
Encouraged by her hus-
band, Tom, Wright, a mother
of two, signed up for profes-
sional training at Le Cordon
Bleu in the Basic Cuisine
Course. '
Wright had done plenty of
cooking when her two sons
were young along with enter-
taining frequently at home.
Confidant in her cooking
abilities, she enrolled in Le
Cordon Blue to be more cre-
ative and go a level beyond
the ordinary "meat and pota-
toes" fare.
Wright believed she had
already mastered many of
the skills that were to be
taught in the 10-week course.
The chopping and knife
skills, which covered the first
day of the course, however,
proved to be more of a chal-
lenge than she had anticipat-
ed.
["Attending Le Cordon
Bleu was] "harder work than
one can possibly imagine,
but worth the effort," said
Wright, who graduated from
the school's basic cuisine.and
patisserie courses.
Now, Wright has partnered
with her sister, Lynne
Fairfield, to offer culinary
classes at the Inn on
Charlotte Street in St.
Augustine, where Fairfield is
"thre' infIke'per.
t."'.Fafifhl~fsaid that the class-
es are another way she hopes
to provide her guests with a
relaxing and interesting stay
in St. Augustine.
"Most guests like to peek
into the kitchen," Fairfield
added.
"This is a way we can
invite them to corhe in and
join us there. Couples of all
ages may find the classes
enjoyable or guests can
schedule a girl's weekend at
the Inn and attend a cooking
class as part of their stay,"
she said.
Another possibility, sched-
ule permitting, might be a
group of friends scheduling a
class for a day outing to St.
Augustine, Fairfield said.
The classes will cover dif-
ferent topics such as souffles,
seasonal foods, or pastries.
During each class, Wright
will demonstrate a recipe
highlighting techniques that
can be used to make similar
dishes.
The idea, said Wright, is to
show people that they can be
successful preparing dishes


that might seem challenging.
Fairfield will also pair
wines with the recipes to add
to the students, enjoyment
as they sample what Wright
has prepared.
Wright's Twice Baked Goat
Cheese Souffles are the signa-
ture dish for the Souffles
class at the Inn. These are
baked in small individual
souffle dishes, then unmold-
ed and baked again after
being moistened with heavy
cream.
Carefully making the
cream sauce, tempering the
eggs before adding them to
the hot mixture, and beating
the egg whites are the three
most important steps to
ensure success with the twice
baked souffles, she said.
The flavors blend well in
the souffles so that not one
ingredient dominates the
taste of the delicious finished
product. This dish would
make a good choice for a
luncheon or with a main
course.
As she demonstrates,
Wright offers tips on choos-
ing the right equipment and
the proper techniques. There
is also time for her to share
anecdotes about her experi-
ences at Le Cordon Bleu.
Wright suggested ideas for
cold dessert souffles, such as
Chilled Lemon Soufflie-hle
with the juice from Meyer
lemons grown in her yard.
While this is not a baked
souffle, the basis for the
recipe is a cooked custard.
Many of the same techniques
used in the Twice Baked Goat
Cheese Souffles are used in
making the dessert souffle.
The custard is quickly
chilled in a bowl of ice
water, then beaten egg
whites are folded into the
custard. Wright recommends
using pasteurized egg whites
for safety in this recipe. Just
be aware that they may take
a little more time to beat to
the right consistency, she
said.
Freshly whipped cream is
gently folded into the mix-
ture before it is chilled in
small souffle dishes. After
unmolding, the souffles are
garnished to make picture
perfect individual servings.
The following are recipes
from the Souffles Class given
by Valerie Wright at the Inn

puter that was ever born.
And I say born because
computers seem sort of real to
me. I love my computer. I talk
to my computer and put little
gifts of rocks and flowers
around it so it will cooperate
and get me through another
day without a nervous break-
down or heart attack.
I have not named my com-
puter. I think this is keeping
me out of an institution, but I
do think of it fondly and I


admit to having an obsession
with certain types of key-
boards.
When I type, slap me, oh
high school typing teacher, I
look at the keys. Now I type
really fast, never as fast as my
wild brain, but pretty dang
fast for a woman who looks at
all the letters when she is
thinking.
There is something about
the way my fingers glide
across certain keyboards. It's a
soft wide key that attracts me
the most, and I am here to tell
you that this computer and
my little, but too heavy,
portable baby have fine keys.
Because I write for a living, I
excuse my borderline love, the
computer behavior by com-
paring my computer to a
truck, a rake, a trowel, a shot
glass you know, whatever
you use to make a living is
something you should love.
Right?
Thus, I love my computer.


I love e-mails too, except
the junk mail that always
seeps into our files even with
.the highest fence, the tightest
lock, the biggest guard dog.
These days I find myself
unsubscribing to websites that
I must have at one time want-
ed to visit on a regular basis.
What was I thinking? Was I
blinded by love? Did I sniff
too many live wires? Have I
fallen under the spell of the
intoxicating feel of my own
keyboard?
Did I get so carried away
with the feel of an f, k, or r
that I simply could not stop
myself?
As I delete, these days, I am
trying to be a better sub-
scriber, lest I spend any more
of my precious Internet time
saying bye-bye to sites I once
was on the verge of having an
'affair with.
. I am so sorry, little black
computer.

That's exactly what Jay is
doing for a busy family of four
in the process of updating and
expanding their home at 1160
Beach Ave in Atlantic Beach.
"They're keeping 100 percent of
their house's original founda-
tion and expanding from two
stories to three, adding a new
front to the existing structure
and building a pool in the back,"
lay said.
The clients want to maintain
the original character and "old
Atlantic Beach look" of their
house, which was built in the late


Thinking of updating or building a new home or commercial building? J. "Jay" Lavale
Paulin, president of Southeastern Structural Consultants, Inc. in Atlantic Beach, is ready to
help and share his expertise. Pictured above, Jay assists a client with the
renovation/expansion of a family home on Beach Avenue in Atlantic Beach.


1920s/early 1930s, and are doing a lot of the work themselves,
w ith Jay's advice.
"We have a solid base here and we don't want to tear it
down," the clients said. "Instead, we're trying to use what we
have, if we can, and recycle inside materials." For example,
they're pulling off the walls and using the walls' backside for
floors for the kitchen and downstairs. They're also saving the
Some's original floors and rehnishing them
"My\ husband read about lay and Southeastern Structural
Consultants, Inc. in the Business Review this fall," the client
said. "We met with Jay and also talked with a builder who had
worked with him and highly recommended him," she said.
First the clients met with an architect and shared their
design ideas. "The architect took our ideas and added his own
to make better use of our space, especially in a house that is
'broken up' in the fashion of the 1930s," the client said.
Then the clients took their architectural plans to Jay and
discussed their budget and builders' bids they had already
received. They hired Southeastern Structural Consultants,
Inc., and their home renovations/additions are in full swing.
"A large project like this can be overwhelming." the client
said. "There is so much to do and so much to consider you
have to know when to clear permits, when to install plumb-
ing, when to dry wall, when to order the windows and Jay
knows all of that."
The client said hiring a consultant like Southeastern
Steir-crural. Consultants, Inc., offers a level of flexibility that
builders may not be able to provide. "We can find our own
people to work on individual steps of the renovation and
expansion and get quotes from them or ask Jay for quotes
from his people."
Hiring a consultant can save money, too "With a lot of con-
tractors, they give you one price, but you never know what is
built in," the client said. "With Jay we know exactly what to
expect, cost-wise, and what it includes."
Already Southeastern Structural Consultants, Inc. has saved
the client thousands of dollars. "We showed Jay one of the
bids we received, and we already know we're going to beat it
by $100,000." she said.
"The whole building and renovation process is a little scary


for a homeowner," the client said. "But lay is our consultant
and our advocate. He draws up the paperwork before the work
is started and makes sure the work is done properly before
invoices are paid. We really do like this process."
lay likes the process, too. He's dedicated to completing proj-
ects on time and within budget -that's his motto. "My
favorite part of every project is first completion and -
second seeing the smiles on our clients' faces," he said.
"We strive to provide our clients personal attention and
detail for their project," Jay added. "Because we're a small
firm, we attend to every stage of your project and help you
anticipate long-term growth expectations and current facility
planning."
Translation: The experts at Southeastern Structural
Consultants understand all aspects of your project, including
the big and small picture, and provide comprehensive, one-
stop, start-to-finish service.
Residential services include everything from custom home
plans and site and construction approval to custom home
additions, site clearing and preparation, landscape design and
drafting. Commercial services include site development and

and structural engineering by Lou Pontigo and Associates, Inc.
"Our concept works because it not only involves the client
but puts the client in control while we take care of the
details," explained lay "\ve provide a team of consultants who
work directly with the client every step of the wav."
The firm's most effective advl'rtiling is referral and word-
of-mouth, said Jay, and no residential job is too large or too
small for Southeastern Structural Consultants.

The increase, approved this

The program, which has

Super explanation

Superintendent Joseph Joyner
explaining why district
schools are on the federal gov-
ernment's "corrective action"
list.
St. Johns and 65 of the other
66 school districts in Florida
made the "corrective" list
based on federal No Child Left
Behind Act.
Joyner's letter, saying St.
Johns is "one of the finest
school districts in the state, if
not the nation," explains that
the federal standing relates to
the way scores are calculated,
for subgroups students who
are poor, disabled, black,
American Indian, white, Asian
or Hispanic.
"If even a single subgroup
does not meet the required
achievement level, the entire
school" is said to lag in
progress, Joyner's letter says.

Panthers again claim district crown


Nease will host Lecanto

to open regional playoffs


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
In what has become a famil-
iar pattern, Nease and St.
Augustine field excellent girls
soccer teams. But when they
meet, the outcome is signifi-
cantly one-sided.
The Panthers have won
seven straight from the Yellow
Jackets, the latest being last
Friday night's 3-1 victory in
the District 5-4A champi-
onship game played at St.
Augustine
High.
Nease took
San early lead
when Kasey
Eckstein scoot-
ed down the
middle of the
Jackets defense
and deposited
a right--footed
shot into the
back of the net
less than four
minutes into PANTHERI
the game. JACKETS
St. Augustine
(23-1-1) evened things with
just under 11 minutes to go in
the first half when Lauren ,
Hopfensberger eluded a pair of
Panthers defenders and buried
a low shot to the left side.
"The only wat St. Augustine
scores is the through ball,"
said Panthers goalkeeper
Catherine O'Donnell. "We
used an offside trap almost the
whole game and it worked
nearly every time.
"We made one mistake and
it cost us a goal but other than
that we played really, really
strong."
Two second-half goals by
Nease midfielder Lisa Heise,
iced that iced the game and a
third straight district title for
the Panithersr. .
"We had a lot of hard-work-
ing people out there tonight,"
Heise said afterward. "I think
it really showed how badly we
wanted it in the second half
after they got a goal to tie it."
On Heise's first goal, about
10 minutes after intermission,
the junior split two Jackets
defenders who seemed to stop
and admire her footwork
through the box. The mid-
fielder then blasted a low,
skidding shot that found the
back of the net.
Heise's second goal was a
left-footed blast from about 20
yards out with just over five


minutes remaining.
"Kristin [Hoover] is probably
our best playmaker but Lisa is
our best finisher," said
Panthers headcoach Dave
Silverberg. "She's got a great
left foot and she can strike it
better than anybody on the
team. We need to make sure
she shoots more."
With the victory, Nease (20-
1-3) moves on to the regional
quarterfinals where it will host
Lecanto Thursday night. at 7
p.m.
/ Asked to
assess her
team's chances
now that the
always-tough
playoffs are at
hand,
O'Donnell said
the Panthers
are cautiously
confident.
"I think we
can go all the
S 3 way," said the
1 junior keeper.
"I think we
have to work harder together
as a team to make it [to the
state's final four], but I think
we can do it.
"We did lose our strongest
players in the middle from last
year. Our center mids are real-
ly small but they make up for
it with their ball control. So
I'd say we're not as big as we
were last year but we're just as
good,"
Silverberg shares that cau-
tious optimism as his team
embarks on a mission to win
its third consecutive state title
and fourth in the last six
years. For the Panthers to earn
a return to trip to Fort
Lauderdale's Lockhart Stadium
and a berth in the Class 4A
final four, they'll have to win
two games on the road in the
regional playoffs.
"Now it's a one-and-done
kind of thing," he said. "To,
some that might be pressure,
but for our kids, if we go
down we're not going down
without a fight. This team bat-
ties and they have a real will.,
"We've reached the point of
the season where you don't
have to say too much before
games and you just kind of let
the seniors and team leaders
take over. Everyone knows
what's at stake and you just
hope players can elevate their
games when it counts most."

FISHING



Inshore action good because of rough seas


Most of the action last
week was inshore, of
course, because of
the rough seas.
Capt. George Strate got the
"Mayport Princess" out last
Monday and returned with
some happy anglers. They
filled the cleaning table with
four snapper, seven huge
flounder to nine pounds and
plenty of sea bass and beelin-
ers.
Capt. Fred Bridges, with his
wife Judy and their grandson
Dalton, took advantage of a
nearly perfect Monday and
found both the trout, red
bass and flounder hungry.
They used mud minnows for
bait on the red bass and
flounder and caught 12 reds
to 25 inches and a pair of
flounder. They also used arti-
ficials and caught 34 speckled
trout.
Willie Ulmer and Louise
Carson have been getting

plenty of action on the shad
in the river near Sanford. Last
Saturday they used artificial
in one of their favorite spots
to catch 30 shad. They
released all of their fish
which averaged between two
and three pounds.
Capt. Chip Wingo, fishing
from his "Shallow Minded"
last week with Al Conners,
put his net under seven reds


and three flounder.
Everything was caught in
feeder creeks between the
McCormick and Atlantic
Bridges on artificial.
Canal guide John Dyrssen
trolled the drop off from the
McCormick Bridge to Butler
and back using salty dog and
caught 10 trout.
Capts. David King and
Mike Morris drifted along the
jetties on two trips last week
from the "Crusty Crab" and
caught 14 sheepshead on one
trip and 30 on another. Capt.
David likes dead low tide.
Capt. Al Wiltshire and his
friend John Burroughs took
the "Sharkey's Den II" just off
the beach last Monday morn-
ing for whiting. They caught
over 100, and kept only the
large ones.
Al said the whiting are
strong now all along the
beach in 35 to 40 feet of
water.

OPINION



Manning finally gets his



Colts to the Super Bowl .


T he suspense has been
almost unbearable, but
now the world knows
that Hillary Rodham Clinton
will run for president in 2008.
And oh, yes the Super
Bowl two weeks away will fea-
ture the Indianapolis Colts
(surprise, surprise!) and
Chicago Bears as the attrac-
tions.
This is for the benefit of
those watching the Snow Bowl
on Sunday and aren't sure who
won because they couldn't see.
But the big story that most
of the national media has
missed is that one of the
teams, the Colts, were actually
defeated by the Jacksonville
Jaguars a while back. No, real-
ly. The Jaguars beat Indy in a
regular season game, which is
something the New England
Patriots and Tom Brady could-
n't do in the AFC
Championship game in the
dome at Indianapolis on
Sunday.
It looked like the Patriots
were scoring a mild upset most
of the afternoon, but that did-
n't fool most of us who have
grown to know the Colts and
their distrustful ways for years.
Along came Peyton Manning

NFL title game is now set.

Are mouth guards a good idea for



high school basketball players?


Question: Should I wear a
mouth guard for high
school basketball?
Answer: Mouth guards are
often recommended, but other
that in football, seldom used.
Mouth guards protect not
only the teeth, but can also
protect the gums and lips, as
well as help to prevent injury
to the jaw by helping absorb
some of the force that occurs
during contact.
Some sports, such as football
and boxing, require a mouth-
piece, but truly any athlete
who participates in sports that
involves contact should con-
sider a mouth guard. This
would include basketball, soc-
cer, lacrosse, rugby and
wrestling.
A study by the University of
North Carolina, my alma
mater, looked at the use and
protection provided by mouth
guards. The study looked at 50
division 1 basketball teams and
followed them for the inci-
dence of dental injuries over
the course a single season.
The study found that while
only about 10 percent of the
players wore mouth guards,
those who did not were five
times more likely to sustain a
"serious dental injury" and fur-
thermore indicated that the
average cost of treatment for
these injuries was close to


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR
$1,000.
Off the shelf mouth guards,
most costing less than $15, can
be found at most sporting
good stores, and can quickly be
custom fit by a boil and bite
technique.
Basically you dip the mouth-
piece in boiling water for about
30 seconds, then dip it in cold
water to cool it off, then put it
in and bite onto it until it
hardens, creating your custom
fit.
According to a report that I
found by the American Dental
Association, a whopping five
million teeth are knocked out
each year during athletic com-
petition.
Known as a tooth avulsion,
this is a complete separation of
the tooth from its socket, with

complete rupture of the peri-
odontal ligaments. The time
from injury to implantation is
critical to the survival of the
tooth, for the cells on the root
surface of the tooth must sur-
vive for the tooth to survive.
If a tooth is knocked out dur-
ing play, you should rinse the
tooth in sterile or clean water
without scrubbing it or han-
dling it by the root. Your goal
is to replace the clean tooth
immediately into its socket.
The tooth can be held in
position by lightly biting
down, and then an evaluation
by a dentist should take place
as soon as possible.
It is critical that you don't let
the tooth dry out, for if it is
not replanted within a two-
hour time frame, the chance of
tooth survival is low.
So, in response to your ques-
tion, let me say this. I played
high school basketball and
never wore a mouth guard and
was lucky to never have had a
dental injury.
However, knowing what I
know now, I would recom-
mend it. I am sure that I
would get used to it, and con-
sidering the alternative of hav-
ing a tooth knocked out, it
would be well worth it.

Nease's Schaefer


goes from never



having played to



All-State selection

Panthers place six on 4A squad


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
In the span of a few
months, Allen Schaefer went
from first-time kicker to first-
team all-state selection.
One of a record six Nease
High football players named
to the Class 4A All-State
Football Team, Schaefer is the
only one who had never
played organized football
before the 2006 season.
Also making first-team all-
state for Nease were seniors
James Wilson and Justin
Grant. Seniors Clyde Yandell
and Zach Tronti were named
to the second team. Junior
quarterback Ted Stachitas was
a third-team selection.
Schaefer's late start wasn't a
handicap.
In 15 games last season,
Schaefer, a senior placekicker,
converted eight of his 11 field
goal attempts, including a
school-record 55-yarder.
Schaefer also booted a 52-
yarder against Bartram Trail
High to help 4A state runner-
up Nease (14-1) secure its first
10-0 regular season in school
history.
A scholar-athlete with a
4.23 grade-point average,
Schaefer was also 46-of-50 on
extra-point attempts and was
one of eight players in the
state who received the Junior
Orange Bowl Award for aca-
demics.
"We were amazed at the
whole season," said Schaefer's
father, Gerald.
"Allen never played football
until this year. He was a soccer
player. He never went to any
kicking camps and didn't even
play in the spring game."
Schaefer played varsity soc-
cer for Nease as a junior and
on soccer travel teams since
grade school.
He used to jokingly tell for-
mer Nease kicker Alex Amaral
that kicking a football "didn't
look too hard."
Schaefer proved his point
two days before Nease's 2006
spring game by splitting the
uprights on his first field goal
try from about 30 yards out.
Nease coaches enticed
Schaefer to stick with it, but
did not guarantee him a start-
ing kicking position in the
fall.
The Panthers lost Amaral,
who played on Nease's 2005
state title team to graduation,
but returned kicking specialist
Zack Cooper.
Schaefer wasn't expecting to
be anything more than the
backup kicker.
He ended up being so much
more.
After Cooper suffered a hip


injury before Nease's 2006 sea-
son opener, Schaefer became
Nease's kickoff specialist for
the first six games of the sea-
son.
He made his first big
impression in Week 2 of the
regular season by booting a
pair of field goals, including a
43-yarder, on the road against
Sanford Seminole.
He also was 6-of-6 on extra-
point kicks, including a 25-
yarder in that game.
Cooper, Nease's talented
punter, took over the kickoff
chores in Week 7, allowing
Schaefer to concentrate solely
on field goals.
Against Ridgeview, Schaefer
capped a 38-0 victory with a
record 55-yard kick, the
longest ever attempted by a
Nease player.
Heading into the state
championship game in
December, Schaefer ranked
among the best kickers in the
state at any classification.
His 67 total points trailed
only Wesley Byrum (1) of St.
Thomas Aquinas and Matt
Roddenbery of Lakeland (68).
Schaefer even outscored his
predecessor Amaral, who
amassed 64 total points before
the 2005 state championship
game.
"If you would have told me
last spring that I would be
kicking in the state champi-
onship game [in December], I
would have laughed," said
Schaefer, who plans to study
either mechanical or aero-
space engineering in college.
"It was great to know that
the coaches had confidence in
me. The whole season was a
highlight that I will remember
for the rest of my life."
Gerald Schaefer said
recruiters are not "lining up at
the door" to sign his son to a
'football scholarship.
Kickers, no matter how
good, are often only granted a
partial football scholarship or
preferred walk-on status at
many colleges and universi-
ties.
Schaefer said he will be
making an academics-first
decision about college.
Right now, he is leaning
toward attending the
University of Central Florida,
where he may walk on as a
kicker for the school's
Division I football team.
But if he never kicks a foot-
ball again, it won't diminish
what Schaefer accomplished
in such a short time at Nease.
Making first-team all-state
was the cherry on top of the
cake.
"It was one more round of
excitement for us," said
Gerald Schaefer.


Photos by ROB DeANGELO
Panthers guard James Wilson was one of six Nease High play-
ers named to the Class 4A all-state team. The highly-recruited
Wilson, ranked as the nation's top lineman by several scouting
services, recently withdrew his verbal commitment to attend
Southern Cal and will instead attend the University of Florida.
