Principal to file
immediate
appeal in same
football case

by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
The Florida High School
Athletic Association (FHSAA)
has denied an appeal by two
Nease football coaches fired in
November after the, FHSAA
imposed stiff penalties in a
football case, and the coaches'


lawyer blames a letter from
Nease Principal Linda
Thomson.
Thomson, meanwhile, said
the FHSAA interpreted her let-
ter to mean the school did not
support the coaches' claims,
when she, in fact, thinks the
claim was "excellent."
Thomson also said Nease's
appeal on the same issue -
planned for 2008 is being
filed immediately instead,
because she feels the $20,000
fine and six years of athletic
probation are too harsh.
"I felt that the consequences
were unduly harsh consider-
ing what we really did wrong,"


Thomson said of her decision
to file the appeal sooner.
After investigating a claim
that two coaches violated
recruiting policies, the FHSAA
said the player in question was
not recruited but that the
coaches unintentionally gave
favors not allowed under
FHSAA policies.
The FHSAA ruled that the
student was, in fact, eligible to
play football.
The appeal heard Sunday
was filed by the two assistant
football coaches Wesley
Haynes and Kenneth Fasnacht
- who were fired by Thomson
in November.


Thomson said Tuesday,
however, that she plans to
welcome back both coaches
for the 2007-2008 football sea-
son.
Thomson announced in
December that Nease would
file its own appeal once the
new Ponte Vedra high school
opens in 2008. About 1,500
students will be redistricted to
that new school instead of
Nease.
She said Tuesday that she
decided to file the appeal now,
because new attendance zones
will be approved by the St.
Johns County School Board in
February and there is no need


to wait until the new school
opens.
Nease's appeal will be heard
on March 25.
Len Stachitas, president of
the Nease Boosters Club, said
Monday that Thomson's deci-
sion to file an appeal now
sends a bad message to Nease
students.
He said an appeal from the
school should have been filed
right away.
"It is a terrible lesson they
have taught the kids at Nease,
which is when you're accused

Diver shares 'extreme' expedition


FROM STAFF
Captain's log, Nov. 26, high in
the surreal landscape of the Aguas
Calientes volcano in Chile, where
Eric Smith of St. Augustine is part
of a team on expedition:
"Eric must be on 220 V. He
passes me almost running with
his camera on his hand. He
wants to film our arrival at the
summit. What can I say... I am
just smiling, happy like the rest
of the guys."
Capt. Nathalie A. Cabrol, a
planetary geologist, records the
movements of the team explor-
ing some of the highest lakes on.
earth and their "extreme envi-
ronments."
"Eric is on the opposite side,
filming. It is close to noon. I go
to my UV sensors and ther-


mometer to make a few meas-
urements. The feeling of cold
was not just a feeling. The tem-
perature is below zero."
Smith is scheduled to give a
slide presentation on the expe-
dition at 11 a.m. Thursday at
the Palm Valley Senior Center,
148 Canal Blvd., Ponte Vedra
Beach. The public is invited.
Smith is co-producer of a
documentary about the expedi-
tion, which is in post-produc-
tion for television.
Cabrol's captain's log, at high-

PV man new chief of land trust


by KRISTA DOLAN
CONTRIBUTOR
Ponte Vedra resident Mark
Middlebrook recently was
elected president of the North
Florida Land Trust (NFLT), a St.
Johns County-based nonprofit
organization that works to pro-
tect conservation lands in a
seven-county area.
Among parcels purchased by
the NFLT is a 40-plus acre
marsh located just north of the
Guana River State Park.
When the purchase was
announced two years ago, the
NFLT said the parcel was one of
the last remaining large intact
wetlands in Ponte Vedra Beach.
After leaving the world of
news reporting in 1999,
Middlebrook served under for-
mer Mayor John Delaney as
executive director of the
Preservation Project, the
mayor's land acquisition proj-
ect.
Middlebrook serves on sever-

What's in a name? Confusion for some


Every year, Ponte Vedra Beach is
home to the momentous, presti-
gious and oh so confusing PGA
Tour Championship, or The Players,
as the tournament is now officially
called.
Last year the Tour shortened the
name from The Players
Championship (known to locals as
the TPC) to simply The Players.
Though they still refer to it (in
the 2007 media guide) as the The
Players Championship, they prefer
that it be called simply The Players.
The only difference is "THE PLAY-
ERS" is in all caps, as is "PGA
TOUR."
And the acronym "TPC" is
reserved for the golf course itself -
the Tournament Players Club. Got
it? Now here's where it gets a little
confusing.
The media tends to ignore this
"official" capitalization of the name
and prints the name merely as "The
Players."
The Tour, of course, still insists on
capitalizing every letter, which sort
of reads like someone is shouting
the name of the tournament.


(Funny, for a sport that requires a
lot of whispering when watching
it.)
Now, if something as miniscule as
a couple of capital letters is such a
sticking point for the peopj e.pfthe.
PGA Tour, why don't they start
picketfiig when s6tiieone refers to
them simply as the PGA?
The "PGA" exists farther down I-
95, in Palm Beach Gardens.
The three letters, when used
alone, refer to the Professional
Golfers' Association of America, or
the PGA of America.
Its members are the teaching pro-
fessionals who work to help regular
joes master the game.
The PGA Tour excuse us, the
PGA TOUR is the touring profes-
sionals, the guys you see on televi-
sion each week making the big
bucks off of their God-given talents.
The tournament is still quite a
ways off (it doesn't"start until May),
but we thought we would start
going over all the proper and not-
so-proper names now. Hopefully,
come May we'll have it down.


Driving directions
The Web site for the
Jacksonville Beach public golf
course offers a streaming mes-
sage that offers drivers "revised"
directions to the course due to
road work in the area. Penman
Road south of Beach Boulevard
is closed until October. With the
course and clubhouse located at
the southern end of the road,
efforts are being made to get
drivers the directions they may
need due to the detour. The
message line streams quickly so
it can make it a little tough
"click here": Site visitors-have to
try a couple of times to make
the click at the right time it's
,.probably a hand-eye coordina-
tion exercise. for golfers. The
information is at
golfclub.com/home/index.php>

Does his vote

count?
A person who was nominat-
ed for appointment to the
community development
board for Atlantic Beach was
under the impression that the
Atlantic Beach commission
agreed on his membership.
He attended the communi-
ty development board meet-
ing a couple weeks ago and
participated as a member of
the board.
But when the Atlantic
Beach commission was con-
sidering new appointments to
the board at a recent meeting,
the man's name was in the
pool of eligible applicants.
After much debate and
back-and-forth discussion,
the commission members
realized that they were not
actually sure if they had
appointed him yet.
Oops.
But hey, no biggie. They
soon came up with a solution:
they asked Mayor Don
Wolfson to review the tape
recordings of the previous
meeting where they discussed
the man's nomination.
If the tapes say he's in, he's
in. If they say he's out. .. well,
you get the picture.
Meanwhile, the man will
stay on the board until they
figure out what their decision
was.
Is is any coincidence that
the commission will decide at
a strategy meeting next
month whether it needs to
work on improving commu-
nication skills between its
members?


Offices will be in the red Friday


Friday is National Wear Red
Day for companies and busi-
nesses, and, no, it has nothing
to do with that extortionate
holiday that forces millions of
men to buy roses and teddy
bears Valentine's Day.
National Wear Red Day, spon-
sored by the American Heart
Association, encourages people
to wear red to show support for
the fight against cardiovascular
disease the No. 1 killer of
women in America.
Employees of participating
companies donate $5, which
buys them the right to wear
jeans (if appropriate) and red.
The money goes to support
research and education to pre-
vent and treat cardiovascular
disease and stroke in women.
Some major landmarks, such
as the Empire State Building,
will be illuminated in red light,
according to the American
Heart Association, which also
suggests several Wear Red Day
activities for the work place.
Here are a few of our favorites:
"Red Rally" Hold a kickoff


party allowing employers to
help raise awareness about the
disease and get their workers
excited about participating.
"Paint Your Company Red"
- Decorate the office with any-
thing red (balloons, ribbons)
and hold a contest to choose
the "Reddest of the Red" depart-
ment or desk.
"Go Red Races" Hold an
old-fashioned potato sack race -
yes, a potato sack race down
the longest hallway or room in
the office.
Since everyone is wearing red,
maybe a few bulls could be
added to the race, giving com-
petitors a real motivation to get
going. (We note that the AHA
has not endorsed this addition.)
Sure, the combination of
bulls and a dozen or so red
shirts might be a tad dangerous,
but it would make the holiday
much more memorable than,
say, Valentine's Day.
For more information on
Wear Red Day, call the
American Heart Association at
739-0012.

opening. .. which was a year
ago.
That's right, the West
Beaches Office has been serv-
ing the community since it
opened 12 months ago and
has been quite busy, given the
fct that there is hardly ever a
.shortage of o19g lines.
But perhaps the lbtig'delay
of the opening celebration is a
blessing in disguise.
After all, there will plenty of
people there people patiently
(or not so patiently) waiting in
line.
If someone brings a radio,
that's the perfect set up for a
few good congo lines or per-
haps even a game of limbo.

Appeal: Nease won't wait for 2008


Continued from A-1
of something, whether you've
done it or not, you're just sup-
posed to take it," Stachitas said.
"As a parent I couldn't be
more upset and frustrated that
no one would stand up for our
kids."
Stachitas, one of about 30
parents who attended Sunday's
hearing in Gainesville, ques-
tioned why no one from the
school or the school district
showed up at the hearing to
support the coaches.
The coaches "easily" would
have won their appeal if
Thomson or someone from the
school district were there to
show their support, Stachitas


S.






Linda Thomson

John t -e, :







John Stewart


said.
Despite her apparent support
of the coaches' appeal,
Thomson said she felt it was
inappropriate for her to attend
the hearing or for her to send a
letter of support to the FHSAA.
The letter she sent to the
FHSAA was merely an effort to
clarify that Nease would not
foot the bill if the coaches'
appeal was lost.
She said that letter was in
response to one sent to her by
the FHSAA earlier this month
that said the school would be
responsible for legal fees in the
event that the appeal is lost.
Thomson wrote a letter back,
saying "Mr. Haynes and Mr.
Fasnacht have absolutely no
relationship with Nease High
School at this point. They are
certainly not speaking in our
behalf."
Thomson said FHSAA
Commissioner John Stewart
used those statements as proof
that Nease did not support the
coaches' appeal.
According to Thomas Fraser,
attorney for the coaches, the
reason for denying the appeal
was based solely on the inter-
pretation of the letter.
Fraser said Monday that the
FHSAA review board concen-
trated on the letter and did not
consider the merits of the
coaches' appeal.
Stewart said in a telephone
interview Tuesday that there
was no confusion surrounding
the letter.
He said Fraser claimed to be
at the hearing on behalf of
Nease, "and they can't come
on behalf of Nease."
In the interview, however,
Stewart was not clear about his
interpretation of the letter: one
moment he said the letter
clearly states that Nease does
not support the coaches in
their appeal and later he said
he does not feel that the letter
shows a lack of support.


When asked.why the FHSAA
review board denied the
appeal, he said the board does
not need a reason.
Stewart said the board did
consider and discuss the con-
tent of the appeal in reaching
its decision to deny.
In their appeal, the coaches
argued that the conclusions of
the FHSAA investigation are
contradictory because the asso-
ciation ruled that the football
player involved was eligible to
play.
SThe FHSAA investigation
found that Nease violated
recruiting policies when a stu-
dent and his father subleased a
portion of a condominium
owned by Fasnacht.
Fasnacht also gave the stu-
dent rides to school on several
occasions and his father was
considering accepting a job
with a business owned by
Haynes.
According to Thomson, the
FHSAA found Nease in viola-
tion of its policies because an
eligibility ruling was sought in
the middle of the season -
October instead of at the
beginning of the season.
Thomson said she actually
thought the coaches' appeal
was "excellent" and that it "hit
many salient points."
"I was very hopeful that they
would receive a favorable
response," she said.
Stachitas said he believes
Thomson's letter was well-
intended, adding that the mis-
interpretation of her letter,
which led to a swift denial by
the FHSAA, indicates "some
very underhanded dealing"
within the organization.
"These people [at the FHSAA]
are supposed to be setting the
rules and the guideline for eth-
ical behavior that's laugh-
able," he said.

NFLT: Capital campaign upcoming


Continued from A-1
A: We used to have an envi-
ronmental beat at the TU . .
so it's something I've had an
interest in for a long time.
Q: How much land does
the North Florida Land Trust
have?
A: They've been around
since 1999 and have done
some good work and are poised
to do some good work. I think
2007 is going to be a big year
for us.
Q: The North Florida Land
Trust Web site (www.north-
floridalandtrust.org) indi-
cates that properties in
Northeast Florida under pres-
sure for development are
very expensive and that the
NFLT plans an intense capital
campaign. What will that
entail?
A: We're still trying to deter-
mine how all that is going to
evolve . [the campaign to
acquire other parcels in the
Timacuan Preserve will] help
build the largest city park sys-
tem in the nation. The city and
its partners ... have about 130
square miles of park space, all
within the city.
Q: So you're hoping to part-
ner with the city?
A: That's what we're hoping
to do.
Q: Where does funding for
the trust come from?
A: Donations
Q: What are the plans to
extend community support
and targeting?
A: We're involved in a pro-
gram. Marcy Silkebaken [also
of Ponte Vedra] is leading the
fund-raising efforts .... [We're]


hoping to expand that
effort into a much laig-
er capital campaign ...
once we establish a
foothold. The City o[
Jacksonville has some
of the most spectacular ...;-
areas in Florida, people
just don't know it.
Q: So is that anoth-
er goal, to increase
marketing efforts?
A: Definitely. I think
you're going to see a
number of different
things coming up
through the year both
through the city.
[through a] public serv-
ice announcement
campaign [and the
NFLT]. A lot of attention [is
going to be] focused this year
on the city's natural resources.
Q: Serving on all the boards
that you do, how do you man-

Man, 80, gets BEAM donations

instead of gifts for his birthday


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
When Red Lonberg recently
celebrated his 80th birthday,
he did not want to receive
more stuff to clutter up his
Jacksonville Beach home.
So his daughters Norma
Layton and Genie Lewis
devised a giving plan for the
man that has everything.
"I've got enough inventory
around my house," Lonberg
said. "It's just me and the cat
and it's still crowded."
Layton and Lewis held a sur-
prise party for their father Jan.
14 at the Jacksonville Beach
Women's Club.
In lieu of gifts, guests were
asked to bring food to donate
to the Beaches Emergency
Assistance Ministry. The
response spilled out of the bags
and boxes that filled the bed of
Lonberg's pickup truck Friday
afternoon at the BEAM office.
"I'm really impressed," he
said. "I thought I had about
200 pounds but when we
loaded up it's more like 400
pounds. It was tremendous for
these girls to do that."
A long time Beaches icsidenti
olten seen zipping down the'
beach on his land sailer,


Lonberg said he told his
daughters that he didn't want a
"big fuss" for his birthday but
the invitations to the Jan. 14
"Sail-a-Bration" were already in
the mail.
"This was as selfish as it was
selfless. He can't find a place to
put what he's got. This way at
least we don't have to dust it,"
Layton said.
"I just hope it will prompt
people to say 'I can do that' or
'I can do better than that'."
The effort netted an estimat-
ed 400 pounds of non perish-
able food items, many accom-
panied by notes and birthday
wishes. It took two trips with
two carts to unload Lonberg's
truck.
"If I make it to 90, I'm going
to get a bigger truck," he
quipped.
BEAM's executive director
Cindy Funkhouser Friday said
she was thrilled at the family's
generosity.
"When someone does some-
thing like this it is so amaz-
ing,," she said.
Lonberg said he hopes peo-
ple in the community will con-
,.rider thekg,ood that BEAM
accomplishes .hougli its cqpm-
munity outreach : programs
when planning a party or


event.
"People don't want a lot of
miscellaneous stuff around
that they ain't going to use,"
he said. "Put something in
someone's belly that is hun-
gry."
BEAM offers assistance to
qualified low income families
at the Beaches. The group also
holds an annual back to school
clothing giveaway for under-
privileged children.
Funkhouser said BEAM expe-
rienced an 81 percent increase
in food donations in 2006, dis-
tributing over 50 tons of food
last year. In 2005, the hon prof-
it agency distributed 29 tons of
food.
The donation, she said, will
help keep the food pantry
stocked for the next few weeks.
As for Lonberg, he's "tickled
something fierce" that he was
able to help even if his guests
managed to sneak in some tra-
ditional birthday gifts.
"I got some of that stuff that
makes you stink pretty and
some shaving lotion but I've
got a beard. Maybe that was a
hint," he said. "It was worth
it."

Arbor Day a success

and sale went fast


To the editor:
Best Arbor Day yet.
Saturday the weather was
great and 150 trees were ready
for adoption. In past years,
the weather has not cooperat-
ed on Arbor Day cold and
blustery which resulted in
trees left over.
This year our 150 trees
found homes in less than half
an hour. To my regret many
citizens were disappointed
that for the lack of trees we
had to leave. It only means
we should buy more trees
next year.
Thanks go to the City of


Jacksonville Beach for spon-
soring the tree give away,
Gary Meadors from the Parks
Department for his help in
planning the event and the
city park's employees who
distributed the trees.
The City of Jacksonville
Beach anticipates being desig-
nated Tree City USA later this
year for the 18th year.
Thanks to all who came -
if you don't have a tree to
plant go hug one.
Bennie Furlong,
Chairman
Jax Beach Tree Board


Drive the speed limit '' .

and solve area's woes all bd
concd sve area's woesrnng traff Old Cadillacs ain't all bad

concerning traffic


To the editor:
Since the police obviously
won't enforce existing traffic
laws, here's one simple way for
the citizenry to help do so.
Especially while driving on the
3rd St. Expressway, the
Penman Raceway, Beach or
Atlantic, simply DRIVE THE
SPEED LIMIT.


Use the innerlane when pos-
sible, stagger the traffic, and
observe street racers, impa-
tient cell-phoned soccer
moms, and those with thump-
ing illegal stereos as blood
pressure rises and good ol' law
and order triumphs.

AB spending report

lacks real perspective

on where money goes


,4o,the editor:
The forit page of the Jan. 26;
2007 "Leader included an
unsigned article about capital
spending in Atlantic Beach
between 2000 and 2006; this
article was based on a memo
entitled "Historical Capital
Expenditures," which was cre-
ated at the behest of the AB
city manager.
The memo, which is avail-
able on the AB city website,
concluded that AB has spent
an average of 21% of its capital
budget on the area of the city
west of Mayport Rd. which
the memo states is proportion-
ate to the 20% of the total
households in AB who reside
west of Mayport Rd. (based
upon utility billings for house-
holds).
Had Leader staff examined
the memo itself, as I did, they
would have discovered a rather
large exclusion to the figure for
average capital spending: the
$4.9 million Core City projects
(2000) was excluded -- as was
the Hopkins Creek retention
pond project, which was not
listed under the 2003 budget
numbers included in the
spreadsheet.
Furthermore, according to
the numbers in the spread-
sheet of the memo, the Core


City projects con ponents (san-
itary, sewer, water and street)
add up to over millioni, not
$4.9 million as the memo
advised. And, therefore, the
percentage of capital budget
monies spent on the westside
of Atlantic Beach between
2000 and 2006 is around 13%,
not 21%.
These expensive AB public
works projects certainly are
justifiable as providing munic-
ipal services is one of the prin-
cipal tasks of local govern-
ment. My own concern is less
about short-term per capital
spending by .the city govern-
ment and more about a real
lack of interest or empathy at
city hall regarding the needs of
neighborhoods west of Sailfish
Drive, particularly Marsh Oaks.
The Leader has done a dis-
service to its credibility by
uncritically printing this disin-
formation as a news story.
Nevertheless, some readers
now will go to the documents
on the website, which can only
improve the quality of public
discourse now underway in AB
on the subject qf equal repre-
sentation at city hall.

Cads aren't bad. No, not
that kind. Not
ungentlemanly guys.
I'm talking about the cars.
Cadillacs are, to much
folks, pure prestige. Many
have drooled-at one time or
another over a shiny Cad
(aka Caddy).
Elvis Presley probably
dreamed about those big-
money buggies. The thing
is, he could afford them
more than most. According
to an Internet website, "He
was not only the King of
Rock 'n Roll; he was also the
King of Cadillac buyers, pur-
chasing at least a hundred
during his life."
The Cadillac makers are
now advertising on TV with
a new wrinkle: Latching on
to the cultish reputation of
their product, they're asking
Caddy owners to write the
story of their car and send it
in' for possible publication.
One of the most com-
pelling is that submitted by
Tydis R. Marshall, age 23. I
think it truly illustrates the
mystical lure of a Cadillac.
Excerpts: "Ever since I-was
a young boy, I was consid-
ered a loser by my peers and
family members.
They thought I would
never amount to anything


JOHN
HARDEBECK
COLUMNIST

because it took me longer to
catch on to some things
than others.
"During my 2005 family
reunion, I told my family I
would have a Cadillac in
one. year. They laughed and
teased me. But one year
later, I got that brand new
Cadillac. (Now) everyone
looks at me differently.
"Guess Cinderella stories
can work for guys, too."
Bought prestige is often
expensive, though. New
Cadillacs have a terrific safe-
ty factor built in: the price
tag."
Most can't afford one!
But, in any event, I already


have a Caddy. When my
father-in-law (aka."Pop")
passed away in 1981, I
ended up with his 1974
Coupe DeVille.
It's still running but
.needs body work and a
paint job.
Because of hefty gas con-
sumption, I don't drive it
much. When it's moving,.
there's a distinct slurping
sound from the engine, and
I don't think it's water.
When Pop was still alive,
he loved the Green
Machine, but he couldn't
stomach the petrol price
even then and, like me now,
had a small car he drove
every day.
Still, although the old
chug wagon only gets gas
mileage in the single digits,
I occasionally tool around
the Beaches in it.
People sorta stare, proba-
bly because of the faded
paint, rust, and patched up
holes.
I might put on a bumper
sticker that says, "Better to
be a has-been than a never-
was."
I could explain that Elvis
sold it to me. He probably
wouldn't mind.

Widening County Road 210

is a bad precedent to set


To the editor:
It is time to wake up the res-
idents of Sawmill Lakes, and all
of Ponte Vedra, to the issue of
the widening of County Road
210. I am not opposed to road
improvements such as resur-
facing and adding a sidewalk
or bike path, but I do oppose
this 4-laning proposal.
The proposed 4-laning of
210 from the Palm Valley
bridge to the brand new rotary
would have a major impact on
Sawmill Lakes, but it doesn't
stop there. Why just this
small amount of road (9/10 of
a mile) to four lane? We can
be sure they will also want to
widen another part most
likely Mickler to A1A, but pos-
sibly the rest of 210 to A1A.
This is more than just a
Sawmill Lakes issue it will
put in jeopardy not only
Sawmill Lakes but all commu-
nities/homes along Mickler
and 210. It will affect the
value of our homes.
As seen in the high school


fight, the county cannot take
any land from the Guana, so
where will the land come
from? Best case scenario is
they take the right of way from
the rusty fence at the Guana,
across 210, right up to the
Sawmill Lakes fence line.
Worst case scenario, the coun-
ty takes that land, plus
acquires homes/land within
Sawmill Lakes. I believe this is
termed eminent domain.
I cannot imagine the county
taking our land/homes by emi-
nent domain; it would be
incredibly tragic and a horrible
public relations move for the
county, in addition to the
many taxpayer dollars spent to
fight lawsuits.
The county says it is for hur-
ricane evacuation. I believe we
need to question 'that.
Money is being provided for
road improvements by the
developers of Nocatee. In
addition, it has already been
revealed by a former commis-
sioner that the 4-laned road


would provide Nocatee resi-
dents better access to the
beach (By the way, a beach
where there would be no place
to park, except on the street --
but that's another issue!).
People are going to come from
Nocatee to the beach it is
not something we can or
should stop. But do we have
to spend our tax dollars rolling
out the red carpet when we
just do not have the facilities
to accommodate them?
I ask all residents of Ponte
Vedra to please voice their
opinions on the widening of
CR210 in Palm Valley to our
county commissioners.
Encourage them to spend our
money wisely and just vote for
road improvements not
widening. It is not just a
Sawmill Lakes issue. If the
county is allowed to take land
from Sawmill Lakes, where
does it end?

Squirrels don't go

to heaven, right?

he word from the pulpit
is that animals will go to
heaven, too.
But surely not squirrels.
I used to like squirrels. In
fact, I had a pet squirrel,
Frisky, when I was a boy.
(Please, PETA fans, I was just a
child, and I didn't know it was
wrong to domesticate a wild
animal. Besides this squirrel
had been hurt, and we saved
his life. I think that's the
story.)
Yes, I'd like to see Frisky
again. I'm not sure I'll know
him; all gray squirrels look
alike to me. They all have
those puffy little cheeks and
jerky tails and brown eyes,
and they fuss at you in that
squirrelly little voice when
you get close to their space.
Frisky never fussed at us, but
he had all the other attributes.
He was actually cute.
Frisky, in fact, was the last
cute squirrel ever born. The
ones getting into the attic
over our screened-in porch are,
demon-possessed. And they
love to bowl. We've heard
them bowling at all hours of
the night. Probably drinking
beer and shooting pool, too.
No, squirrels must be the
one exception of animals
bound for heaven.
My friend Mary Frazier Long
doesn't think squirrels are
cute. When she and husband
Dean aren't making presenta-
tions on privies, they're
watching squirrels dig up
Mary's daffodil bulbs and bury
them all over the neighbor-
hood.
"It makes me so mad every
time I go by and see a daffodil
blooming," says the author of
"Old Georgia Privies."
"It'll be out there by itself,
and I'll think, 'That's my daf-
fodil.' I think about getting a
shovel and going all over the
neighborhood and digging
them up, but they won't let
me."
The Longs don't have an
outhouse anymore, so they
don't have to worry about ani-
mals taking over their bath-
room, as folks did in the old
days. Dean Long tells about a
mama hen that took over his
family's privy she actually
thought she'd earned squat-
ter's rights.
"Mama hens can be real
mean when they're in that
cycle of laying," Mary Long
says. "That one (at Dean's
house) evidently had some
kind of hormonal problem."
But hens eventually get out
of that cycle, I figure, and
they're fairly nice creatures.
Where would breakfast be
without the hen? We can't
live on whole-wheat bagels
the rest of our lives. Hens are
OK for heaven.
I'm not too sure about
snakes and alligators, though.
And black widow spiders and
wasps and gnats. Do you
think insects go to heaven?
And wart hogs, too?
Maybe. But squirrels have to
be the one exception. The first
time I realized squirrels had
lost their cuteness was when
one fell down the chimney
and into our living room. This
particular squirrel liked lamps
and curtains I think he or
she was an interior decorator.
Then, years later, the bowling ,

Housing slump is


blamed for dip in


consumer confidence


FROM UNIVERSITY OF
FLORIDA
The housing slump and
not gas prices or the stock
market is likely to blame
for the drop in consumer con-
fidence in Florida by one
point to 89 in January,
University of Florida econo-
mists report.
"For more than a year con-
sumer confidence has moved
in the direction of gas prices,
rising when gas prices fall and
falling when gas prices rise,"
said Chris McCarty, director
of the survey research center
at UF's Bureau of Economic
and Business Research. "This
month gas prices declined,
but consumer confidence
declined as well."
The stock market had been
another key influence, but
although the stock market fell
in January, it was a small
decline that would not nor-
mally result in lower confi-
dence, he said.
"Because most of the
decline was in perceptions of
personal finances, then some-
thing else must be responsi-
ble," McCarty said. "This
something else is very possi-
bly the difficulties associated
with a downturn in housing."
Perceptions of personal
finances now compared to a
year ago fell five points to 79,
while perceptions of personal
finances a year from now fell
three points to 93.
Expectations about national
economic conditions over the
next five years fell two points
to 83, while expectations
about national economic con-
ditions over the next year
remained unchanged at 84.
Only the component measur-
ing perceptions of whether it
is a good time to buy big-tick-
et items rose, gaining three
points to 106.
Pessimism was most pro-,


nounced among higher
income households, McCarty
said. Because the stock market
is still relatively healthy and
gas prices are lower, it is
increasingly likely that own-
ers of higher end homes are
the source of the decline, he
said.
"The big question is still
how the slump in housing
will affectconsumers and the
economy in general,"
McCarty said.
Economists are debating the
extent to which lower sales,
and in some cases price depre-
ciation, will influence the
greater economy, he said.
"Some seem to think that
housing has bottomed out
and that we have successfully
achieved a soft landing," he
said. "Others think that the
downturn is not yet over and
that the effects of housing are
not yet fully realized. In my
opinion, Florida will expert-
ence the effects of housing
through 2007."
The research center con-
ducts the Florida Consumer
Attitude survey monthly.
Respondents are 18 or older
and live in households tele-
phoned randomly. The pre-
liminary index for January
was conducted from 417
responses. The error rate is
plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buy-
ing patterns by measuring the
mood of consumers toward
purchasing. Although other
economic indicators also pre-
dict buying patterns, con-
sumer confidence tends to be
available sooner. The index is
benchmarked to 1966, so a
value of 100 represents the
same level of confidence for
the year. The value of the
index is in comparing
changes over time rather than
looking at an isolated month.

Prettier Penman possible


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Community input can help make a hostile
stretch of Penman Road more user friendly in
Jacksonville Beach.
That was the conclusion of road designers,
hired by the city of Jacksonville Beach, who
toured the road this week and will be at city hall
today until noon to hear residents' suggestions
to improve Penman Road.
"The city is facing a lot of issues [with Penman
Road]," said traffic engineer Ian Lockwood of
Glatting Jackson. "We are trying to drill down to
the source of the real problem and not just
address the symptoms."
Project managers with Glatting Jackson will
be available from 8:30 p.m. to noon today for
individual discussions.
"If anyone wants to come talk to us one on
one, you can," traffic engineer Ian Lockwood
said. 'Some people are shy speaking in public
although I heard that is not a problem in this
town."
The final improvement ideas will be presented
at 6:30 p.m. tonight in Council Chambers.
"We are going to take what we hear and com-
bined with our own knowledge come up with a
win-win design," he said.
Lockwood and project managers with
Glatting Jackson recently took a walking tour of
Penman. Road, which is a principal north-south
corridor at the Beaches.
"We looked at how could it be cool to live
here? To ride a bike here," he said. "We know it's
possible. We just need to come up with a good
design."
City Manager George Forbes said the process
will help city officials develop a concept plan to
present to the city of Jacksonville for funding.
Jacksonville City Councilman Art Graham
said the county is willing to provide assistance
once Jacksonville Beach can provide a clear pic-
ture of what it wants.
Improving the "neighborhood cohesion"
would allow traffic functions and town func-
tions to coexist, Lockwood said.
"A good design will bring that back,"
Lockwood said. "There are streets busier than
this that function better."
DRAINAGE
S"I would like to see the ditches go away. We
need bike paths and sidewalks on each side of
the road," Councilman Rick Knight said. "It
needs the lane effect. People love to drive slow
on a country lane."
SLockwood said the existing drainage ditches
lining the corridor could be enclosed to maxi-
mize sidewalk space and install bike lanes.
SThe existing design has prohibited street trees
from getting too close but beautification efforts
would be boosted by more green space.

SIDEWALKS
Walking the length of Penman Road,
Lockwood said he noticed that there were no
cyclists on the road.

Traffic engineer lan Lockwood of the communi-
ty design firm Glatting Jackson looks over pos-
sible improvements to Penman Road with resi-
dents Kathy Bailey and Diana Lain Tuesday at
Jacksonville Beach City Hall. Project man-
agers will be available from 8:30 a.m. to noon
in Council Chambers today to answer ques-
tions and solicit ideas for the road enhance-
ment project.

SUGGESTIONS FOR PENMAN INCLUDE:

* Reduce speed limit to 30 mph
* Add brick pavers
* Add bike paths if ditches covered
"They were all on the sidewalks," he said. "I
imagine they find the street a little hostile."
Wider sidewalks and the installation of bike
lanes would create a more friendly and much
safer appeal.
Lockwood said if the sidewalks were continu-
ous rather than breaking at each access point,
motorists would be cautious because of possible
pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
One reason for the road's inconsistencies is a
breakdown in what Lockwood refers to as
"transportation forensics."
"The road is so inconsistent because it has
been pieced together over time," he said. "The
design did not keep up with the growth. Now is
the time to revisit the whole thing."
COMMERCIAL CORE
Several small retail centers are sandwiched
along Penman Road but Lockwood said the
street is devoid of any characteristics that would
identify the area as a viable commercial core.
Design elements should accommodate a com-
mercial environment, he said
"This could be a vibrant little gem."
PROPERTY VALUES
City Councilman and Realtor Lee Buck said
traffic, safety issues and aesthetics make it diffi-
cult to sell property along Penman.Road.
Lockwood said property values would benefit
immensely if conditions along the corridor
improved.

Atlantic Beach cops likely to get more


space but unclear where the bigger


facilities will be located in the future


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
After touring other Florida
police departments, it is very
clear that the Atlantic Beach
Police Department needs a
new facility, city officials said
this week.
At a workshop meeting
Monday, city commissioners
and staff discussed recent tours
of the Mt. Dora Police
Department and Daytona
Beach Shores Public Safety
Department and how Atlantic
Beach could use the informa-
tion learned on the tours to
improve the city's police
department facility.
Although no decisions have
been made yet, city officials
said they recognize the need
for a new police building as
the existing facility was built
in 1987, and is severely lacking
in space. The current 5,000-.
square-foot building pales in
comparison to the 17,000 to
20,000 square footage of the
other police departments that


Parks are possible site for cops offices

If the police building is moved elsewhere to gain additional
space, Tideviews Park and Jordan Park have been listed as
potential sites, although Jordan Park was discussed as a more
viable solution. Both parks are located on the west side of
Mayport Road.


were toured, according to a
presentation by Police. Chief
David Thompson.
Jacksonville Beach's police
department has approximately
25,000-square-feet of space,
Thompson said.
Thompson also pointed out
the liabilities the current facil-
ity could present for the city.
For example, the current
police department has limited
space for evidence processing
and storage and processing
areas with ventilation, which
can be a health hazard, he
said.
There is also no sprinkler
system and the current build-
ing could not withstand hurri-
cane force winds and flooding,


The next building should be
usable for many years, com-
missioners said. The current
building was constructed with
budget limitations and there-
fore did not leave enough
space for growth and expan-
sion.
"The most important thing
for us to do is have foresight
and be ahead of the curve,"
Mayor Don Wolfson said.
Commissioners, Thompson
and City Manager Jim Hanson
discussed the options of either
relocating the department or
keeping it at its current loca-
tion on Seminole Road at-the
five-points intersection.
Thompson said that if the
building was rebuilt on its cur-


rent location, there would be
several benefits, including a
"one stop shop," where city
hall and the police department
are within close proximity.
Also, the police department
could share emergency power
and some technology between
the facilities.
Both Thompson and the
Architectural Design Group,
who have composed conceptu-
al plans for the sites, recom-
mend that the current facility
be bulldozed so that a new
building may be erected on the
same site.
"I'm thrilled wherever you
put it because I think we need
to do something different,"
Thompson said.
It would cost approximately
$5.86 million to build a new
facility, according to
Thompson. The commission
will further review the options
before deciding whether or not
to proceed with the project,
and will discuss it at the next
strategic planning meeting in -
February.

COLUMNIST
A dozen members of the Sawgrass
Players Club Women's
Association meet monthly for,
lunch and conversation. ,;
They call themselves the "Cboking
Casually" group and they have been
getting together for about three years,
according to Louise Stone, a co-chair-
person for the group, along with Pat
McLean.
Colene Helsby provides additional
organizational help.
"Cooking Casually" is one of many
activities of the Sawgrass women's
group. Members participate in service
projects, book clubs, bridge groups,
and social and cultural events.
Stone said the overall theme for the
monthly luncheons is "simple, easy,
and elegant."
Each month a different member of
the group serves as the hostess for the
luncheon.
Two other members are designated
as helpers who work with the hostess
on the preparation and set-up for the
luncheon.
"We
eat with
our eyes
as well 4
as our
taste- COOKS
buds,"
said
Stone.
The hostesses try to make every-
thing look beautiful and often choose
a theme for their luncheon.
The ladies have enjoyed a luau
luncheon and other festive themes.
Some of the hostesses also choose to
demonstrate cooking as part of their
luncheon.

The first luncheon of 2007, hosted

with brightly colored dishes and a
large bouquet of tulips.

TEACHER OF THE YEAR


Valdes finds quick success at AB Elem.


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER
When Messina Valdes saw a
'"Teacher of the Year" banner
hanging on the door of her
classroom at Atlantic Beach
Elementary she was shocked.
S After all it wasn't that long
ago that Valdes was a student
at the school.
"I couldn't believe it after
only teaching here for three
years, but I absolutely love
what I do," said Valdes, who
teaches fourth-grade math.
"I feel so honored to be
here."
Valdes knew she wanted to
be a teacher after she worked as
a substitute in Duval County for
two weeks. She graduated from
Fletcher High in 1994 and


majored in psychology at
Florida State University. She
also holds a bachelor's degree
in education from the /
University of North Florida.
"I remember coming home
L and thinking I know what I
want to be when I grow up,"
said Valdes, with a chuckle.
"I love that it's different
every day," Valdes said.
"You can have a nice set of
k'- plans but it always ends up
changing. It's frustrating when
they just don't get something
so I wrack my brain to think of
different ways to get them to
understand.
S"And that's the best part;

Team and volunteer


recruitment under


way for Relay for Life


FROM STAFF
The American Cancer

recruiting teams and com-
mittee members to partici-
pate in the First Coast
Beaches Relay For Life.
The 2007 Relay For Life
will be held April 21-22 at
Jarboe Park in Neptune
Beach.
Cancer survivors are invit-
ed to begin the 18-hour relay
by walking a.Survivors'
Victory Lap around the track.
Teams take to the track at
noon on April 21 and one
person from each team
remains on the track until 6
a.m. the following day.
After dark, a luminaria cer-
emony is held in memory of
those who have lost their
battle with cancer and in
honor of survivors.
Relay For Life began as one
man's battle against cancer
and a journey to raise funds


to support the American
Cancer Society.
In May 1985, Dr. Gordy
Klatt walked, jogged, and ran
for 24 hours around a track
in Tacoma, Wash. His run
raised $27,000.
Twenty years and 16 coun-
tries later, Relay For Life has
raised more than $2.27 bil-
lion for the fight against can-
cer.

Womack donates more


art to Beaches hospital


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
Ponte Vedra Beach artist
Barbara Womack, who was
commissioned by Baptist
Health to provide artwork for
the new Baptist South facility
off Interstate 95, is donating
two more of her oil paintings
t'' Baptist Medical centerr
Beaches.
When the Beaches hospital
was preparing to open its
newest patient care unit last
year, Womack donated the
brightly colored oil painting
"Marshes of Fort George" for
the new third-floor area.
"Whether you can sing, or
paint, or whatever your talent
may be, I feel it is important to
give back to the community,"
Womack said.
Her diptych oil paintings,
"Low Tide", are displayed in
the hospital's maternity unit.
When asked to provide art-
work for Baptist Beaches, she
agreed to donate one of the
triptych panels that depicts the
north view of the intercoastal
from the bridge in Atlantic
Beach.
The oil paintings, which are
displayed in the ground floor
hallway adjacent to the dining
room, were done on Belgian
linen canvas.


When Womack's husband
was a patient on the hospital's
progressive care unit, she
learned that the staff lounge
was devoid of any artwork.
She presented the staff with
"Palm Tree in the Keys" to dis-
play in the lounge.
"Theylhad nice. new lockers
in there,; but no window, and
nothing nice to look at when
they took a break," Womack
said.
Much of Womack's work has
been exhibited locally and
nationally.
Her "Jazzy Jag" was one of
the many jaguar statues dis-
played throughout Jacksonville
in 2005.
The piano playing big cat
now resides at the Omni Hotel
in downtown Jacksonville.
One of her marsh scene
paintings was selected to
appear in the' Jacksonville
Coalition for the Visual Arts
juried show.
In 2004 Womack's work was
juried into the Smithsonian
miniatures exhibit.
Her paintings have been
exhibited at many local gal-
leries, including the art exhibit
maintained by Baptist Medical
Center Beaches in the late
1990's.

Carolyn, a certified Aveda

and offer educational programs about hair and
nail care for our guests."
Educating Miko Salon's guests and staff is
Carolyn's passion. That's because she's been in the

If you've never been a guest at Nliko Salon,
here's what you can look forward to.
"First, we evaluate a new guest's hair by asking
them to fill out a questionnaire about their hair
and lifestyle," she said. "Then a stylist reviews the
questionnaire answers with the guest to under-
stand the guest's hair care needs with regard to
their lifestyle and occupation." From there, the
stylist and guest together decide on the best hair
plan. "With their haircut service, we do an aro-

Nease boys win district soccer title


Panthers return to state

playoffs; to host Lecanto

in regional quarterfinals


FROM STAFF
A year removed from miss-
ing the state playoffs for the
first time in five seasons,
Nease is back in the state title
hunt thanks to last Friday
night's victory in the District
5-4A championship game.
Goals by Joe McKinley and
A.J. Nelson early in the sec-
ond half broke open a 1-all
game and
allowed the
Panthers to
claim their
fourth district
title in the last
five years with
a 3-2 win over
St. Augustine.
It was a bit
of revenge for
Nease, which
lost to the
Yellow Jackets
in the semifi- PANTHER.
nals of the dis- JACKETS
trict tourna-
ment last season.
"We played well and did a
good job keeping our focus all
game," said first-year Panthers
head coach Ken Kirsch. "I was
pleased with the effort and
energy [we displayed]. I would
have liked to put them away
and win 6-0, but I'm happy
we got the win."
Palmer Davis sc6oped up a
rebound from Yellow Jackets
goalkeeper Fraser and banged
it home about midway
through the first half to put
Nease up 1-0.
St. Augustine (10-8-2)
answered back, however, less
than two minutes later when
Caleb Sturgis drilled a blast
from about 35 yards out that
glanced off a defender and
skidded past sprawling
Panthers goalkeeper Austin
Davis.
Tied 1-1 at intermission,
Nease (18-3-2) took the field
with a renewed sense of
urgency as the second 40-
minute period began.
Throughout the game the
Panthers used crisp passing
and deft touches to create
scoring opportunities, but the
Yellow Jackets' defense
seemed to rise to the occasion
in turning aside those offen-
sive rushes.
Less than five minutes into
the second stanza, McKinley
cashed in and broke the tie.


"I think we were kind of
frustrated in the first half,"
McKinley said. "But coach
calmed us down at halftime
and we came out determined
to score.
"We had our chances in the
first half but we were finally
able to convert in the second
half."
A minute and a half later,
Nelson scored what turned
out to be the
/ game-winner
when he made
a nice move to
split a pair of
Jackets defend-
ers.
Down two
goals, St.
Augustine
pressed its
5 attack until
Jack Fugate
scored with
S : 3 just under six
2 minutes
remaining to
cut Nease's advantage to 3-2.
But it was the Panthers'
defense and play of keeper
Austin Davis that secured the
District 5-4A title. In the
game's waning moments,
Davis made a pair of clutch
saves to preserve the one-goal
victory.
Nease will play host to
Lecanto High (11-6-5) on
Thursday in a regional quar-
terfinal beginning at 7 p.m.
St. Augustine hits the road
with a trip to Crystal River
(16-3-4) in another regional
quarterfinal Thursday.
With both the Panthers and
Yellow Jackets seeded in the
bottom half of the Class 4A
state playoff bracket, a possi-
bility exists that the teams
could face each other again
this season in the regional
finals Friday, Feb. 9.
However, Merritt Island (25-
0), Jensen Beach (23-2-1) and
Pasco (19-0-2) are also in the
lower half of the draw and
appear to be strong con-
tenders to advance in the
postseason.
Nease and St. Augustine
met twice during the regular
season, with the Panthers
earning a series sweep.
The FHSAA state semifinals
and finals will take place at
Fort Lauderdale's Lockhart
Stadium the weekend of Feb.
16-17.

If beating Lecanto High in
the opening round of the
state playoffs is a good omen,
then the Panthers girls soccer
team is off to
another terrif-
ic start.
Last year,
Nease blanked
Lecanto 6-0 in
a Class 4A
regional quar-
terfinal on the
way to a sec-
ond straight
state champi-
onship.
Last
Thursday. LECANTO
night, the NEASE
Panthers pep-
pered Lecanto
goalkeeper Andraya Avery 20
shots and scored on three
of them to earn a 3-0 victo-
ry and advance to Tuesday's
regional semifinal at Bishop
Moore.
It was an interesting first
half as Avery came up big on
13 Nease shots and half a
dozen corner kicks. While
Nease may have been frustrat-
ed headed to the break still
tied at nil-all, coach Dave


Silverberg's troops were not '
about to change their attack-
ing style'of play.
SIt paid off in the second
half as forward Kristin
Hoover, after taking a nice
crossing pass
From teammate
Lisa Heise,
drilled a low
shot past the
diving Avery.
The goal came
about five min-
,/ utes into the
'second frame.
After another
Stretch of
Nease attacks
without a pay-
0 off, the
S Panthers final-
ly dented the
scoreboard
again with a bit more than 11
minutes remaining in the
contest.
Defender Meagan Thomas
launched a rocket off a free
kick from about 30 yards out
that sailed over Avery's out-
stretched hands.
Less than a minute later,
freshman Ashley Nicol, who
missed a large portion of the
regular season due to injury,
scored Nease's final goal with


Heise earning her second
assist of the night.
While Nease essentially
controlled the tempo of the
game with its offensive
attacks, the Panthers defense
was called upon to make
some stops as Lecanto count-
er-attacked.
The visitors managed just a
handful of shots on Nease
goalkeeper Catherine
O'Donnell but she was equal
to the task each time in
recording the team's 13th
shutout of the season.
With the victory, Nease (21-
1-3) was scheduled to take its
show on the road Tuesday
night with a trip to Orlando's
Bishop Moore (14-7-3) in the
regional semifinal round of
the playoffs.
The Hornets were 5-0 win-
ners over Hudson in last
week's quarterfinals.

FISHING



Local anglers find success in Costa Rica


Local anglers made a big
splash in Costa Rica. Here,
Sea bass catches are still
strong offshore and along the
jetties anglers are picking up
their limit of sheepshead in
just several hours of fishing.
Local fishing offshore does
slow a little in January so some
of our local anglers headed
south last week for what
turned out to be a fantastic
trip. West and Owen Wingate,
Dr. Tom Gaddis, Ken La
Pointe, Tom Edwards, David
Peek and Eric Ragatz fished the
blue water out of Golfito
Sailfish Rancho in Costa Rica
for three days.
They caught 26 sailfish,
three blue marlin, several yel-
lowfin tuna and three bull dol-
phin weighing up to 50
pounds.
A few good catches of whit-
ing and sheepshead were
reported from the Jacksonville
Beach Pier last week but most
of the time it was quiet.
Bill Perry came off the pier
last Thursday with 25 whiting
in his cooler, some at 18 inch-
es. Spencer Brogden was proud
of his three sheepshead and
dozen whiting.
Anglers aboard the "Mayport
Princess" made two trips with
Capt. George last week. On
Wednesday, several dozen reg-

ulars came off the "Princess"
with three hefty grouper at 18
pounds, two 10-pound snapper
and their limit of sea bass and
beeliners. They spent most of
Wednesday within 15 miles of
the beach.
On Saturday, Karl Rau and
Simon Berucky led another
solid day of fishing. Karl
weighed up a 15-pound
grouper to go with his sea bass
and beeliners and Simon
cleaned a 12-pound snapper
and a stringer full of sea bass
and beeliners.
Capt. David King and Mike
Morris teamed up again last
week on the "Crusty Crab."

sheepshead to seven pounds
and a pair reds.
Capt Dennis Young on his
"Sea Dancer" with Lowell
Breeding, Butch Garvin and
Jack Bell last Wednesday cap-
tured 43 big sea bass and a ten-
pound grouper. On Saturday,
Capt. Dennis had as his guests
the Willie Chaffee party. They
brought home 75 sea bass and
a nine-pound grouper.
Capt. Dave Sipler made two
successful trips last week.
On Monday, Cliff and
Martin Nichols from Canada
fished Nassau Sound with
Capt. Dave and they caught 20
speckled trout. On Saturday,
Travis Reeves from Atlanta
fished with Dave and they iced
down 20 trout to 19 inches.
Clay Russell, Jack Ross, Rob
Perritti and Frank Sargent
took" Clay's Cooler" offshore
last week and saw plenty of
action. They caught two
wahoo, the largest a 45-
pounder. They also dropped to
the bottom and picked up four
snapper to 10 pounds and a
good catch of triggerfish.
Jack Bell and Lowell
Breeding on their "Good to
Go" didn't have to go too far
last Wednesday to catch their
limit of fat sea bass.
James Gergley, fishing out of
B&M on the "Head Hunter"
last Wednesday, put his net
under seven red bass to 24
inches, three trout and a floun-
der.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" took his party off-
shore last Wednesday for a lit-
tle bottom fishing. They had
plenty of action ending the
morning with 30 sea bass,
three snapper and a dozen
ringtails.
On Friday, Capt. Kirk with
Rich Gray tried the St. Johns
River near the Jax Naval Air
Station and caught 20 yellow-
mouth and five catfish.
Kirk spotted unusual mark-
ings on his color radar and
decided to cast blind on them.
On his first cast he caught a
pound of 16-count shrimp. He
continued to throw and ended
with 37 pounds of 16 to 25
count shrimp.
Good Fishin'.


FROM STAFF


The AT&T Greater Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament has announced a major format
change for the 2007 event.
Starting in 2007, anglers will be grouped into
two separate divisions as determined by the
boat's overall length (L.O.A.) as per the state reg-
istration documents, and will be competing for
equal prizes.
For the first time in competitive kingfishing,
anglers fishing in the 23 Class (boats measuring
23 feet, 11 inches or less) will be able to compete
for a separate and equal prize structure.
"Given the growth of kingfishing tournaments
over the past 10 years, it has become more diffi-
cult for the smaller boats to remain competi-
tive," said John Patrich, Chairman of the Board
for Jacksonville Marine Charities. "It was time to
recognize and compensate the two different boat
divisions equally."
To achieve that equality, the JMC board voted
to increase the cash portion of the prize structure


by more than 50 percent.
Another big change is that the Ultra Class
(boats measuring 24 feet and longer) and the 23
Class will be competing in an aggregate format
which is designed to reward skill as well as luck.
Boats are allowed to weigh one fish per day and
the total aggregate weight over two days of fish-
ing will determine winners.
The change is intended to keep anglers more
aggressive on the second day and keep drama
going until the end of the weigh-in on Friday.
"Anglers will still be competing for Big Fish
prizes," said prize committee chairman Pete
Loftin. "Boats competing in either division can
win the Big Fish portion of the prize structure.
"Everyone loves to see the biggest kingfish
caught in the tournament and these winner will
be handsomely rewarded."
The 2007 schedule includes a VIP Tournament
Monday, July 16, the Jr. Angler Tournament on
July 17 a captain's meeting Weds., July 18 and
two days of competitive fishing on Thurs., July
19 and Friday, July 20.

OPINION


Windy City or Indy city?



Have to wait 'til Sunday


A nd the winner is...
They'll let you know as soon
as they count the points and
miscues down in Miami next
Sunday night.
Indianapolis or Chicago?
Tom Coughlin can't tell you
now. Neither can Bill
Belichick, Bill Parcells or Jeff
Fisher, as brilliant as each is.
This is the time of when any
fan knows as much as the best
brains in the NFL. The Super
Bowl is always open to any-
one's best guess.
Even the matchup Indy
Colts versus Chicago Bears -
sounds weird. In fact, down-
right crazy. Where are the
New England Patriots? Where
are the Pittsburgh Steelers in
their familiar black and yel-

American coach to win an NFL championship.


month. But smart money
doesn't always pay off.
Example: Did you know the
favorite at the race track wins
less than 30 percent of the
time? Now you do.
Some say the sentimental
money should go to
Indianapolis, a team that has
never been to the Super Bowl
unless you count the franchise
when it was the Baltimore
Colts but that's a whole differ-
ent story.
The Bears have peen in foot-
ball's big game but it was 21
years ago and few of today's
fans even recall Chicago's big
victory over the Patriots.
In fact, it's been so long
since the Bears won a champi-
onship the Colts were still in
Baltimore and games were
actually played in the day
time, for goodness sakes.
Sounds downright vulgar,
doesn't it?
Young fans may not know
that the Super Bowl came into
existence in 1967 when Vince
Lombardi took his Green Bay
Packers and defeated the
Kansas City Chiefs 35-10, a
real nail-biter, in day time.
And the pre-game show did-
n't go on four hours before
kickoff. Poor fans. They were
denied the pleasure of viewing
every television commercial
ad execs could dream up. Plus,
they didn't have the benefit of
hearing from all the experts,
many of whom have become
bigger than the players.
The Super Bowl has come a
long way since those,pioneer
days. There were actually play-
ers then that didn't make
umpty-million bucks a season.
Since your humble corre-
spondent no longer travels to
and covers the Super Bowl in
person, we have no idea what
the media will find to write
about. But all the scribes are
thrilled they get to go to
Miami Baghdad by the Bay
- since there's enough sin for
plenty of off-hours mischief.
Those same scribes and
weather-beaten key-pressers
loved it when the shindig was
here at Alltel Stadium. That

way they could complain
about everything.
Well, the Bears did play in
the 1986 Super Bowl and won
in convincing fashion. And
the Colts were in the game
during Super Bowl III but did-
n't make it. That was in 1969
and the game was later
renamed the Joe Namath
Bowl. Remember?
And the winner Sunday
night will be ... take your
pick. For the first time in NFL
history both Super Bowl
coaches are African-American.
That's good for a league in
which 85 percent of the play-
ers are black.
So whether it's the Colts'
Tony Dungy or Lovie Smith of
the Bears, Super Bowl XLI will
produce the first black head
coach to win an NFL title. It's
progress and it's been a long
time in coming.


Flu vaccine important for some


Question: Dr. Smith, do
I need a Flu Shot?

Answer: Influenza is a seri-
ous disease that spreads when
the influenza virus passes from
an infected person to the nose
or throat of others, usually
through coughing, sneezing,
and by the hands.
Symptoms typically range
from fever, cough, chills,.and
sore throat to headache and
muscle aches.
Influenza can make people
of any age ill. Although most
people are ill for only a few
days, some have a much more
serious illness.
Last year, over 100,000 peo-
ple were hospitalized with the
flu. Influenza usually peaks in.
January, but this year it has
appeared much earlier, and in
much higher numbers than in
the past.
In fact, the flu is already
being blamed for several
deaths across the nation,
including 11 children.
Federal officials reports that
approximately 36,000 people
die each year from influenza-
related illnesses, such as pneu-
monia, and most of these
deaths are in elderly people.
Many of the deaths could
easily have been prevented
through vaccination. Since
influenza is a viral infection,
antibiotics are not effective in
the treatment or prevention of
primary influenza infection.
Because the virus continues
to change, officials warn that
last year's shot may not help
you this year.
Every winter, many hospitals


GREGORY
SMITH, M.D.
CONTRIBUTOR


become overrun with admis-
sions from people sick from
the flu and complications asso-
ciated with it. In fact, in a few
of the hospitals in the
Jacksonville area last year, elec-
tive surgical cases'had to be
cancelled due to this overflow,
for there were simply not
enough hospital.beds available
for post-operative patients.
So who should get a flu
shot? It is recommended for
all persons age 65 or older.
If you are a resident of a
long-term care or nursing facil-
ity, or have any chronic medi-
cal condition, you too should
be vaccinated.
The flu shot is also recom-
mended for any person or
child with a serious long term
heart or lung'disease, kidney
disease, anemia, asthma, or
diabetes. These people are at
particular risk of developing
complications from the flu.
It is recommended that you
get plenty of rest prior to
obtaining your flu shot.
A study out of the New


England Journal of Medicine
revealed that people who had
averaged six hours of sleep or
less for the few nights prior to
their shot developed less of an
immune response. That is, it
just didn't work as well as
those who.were well rested.
There has been a major
change to flu vaccine recom-
mendations for children this
year. Jon Abramson, MD,
chair of The American
Academy of Pediatrics
Committee on Infectious
Disease, states that the acade-
my now recommends that all
children aged six to 23 months
receive the vaccine. Previously,
they recommended vaccina-
tion only for children with
asthma.
"It has become clear in the
last few years that the risk of
hospitalization of children 6-
23 months of age approaches
that for those 65 and older,"
he said.
Persons with a decreased
ability to fight infections
should also obtain the vaccine.
This would include persons
with HIV, those on long term
steroids, or those undergoing
cancer treatments.
Pregnant women who will
be in their second or third
trimester during flu season
should also be vaccinated.
There is that group of people
who are not necessarily at risk
for getting the flu, but are cer-
tainly capable of spreading it
to people with health prob-
lems.
This would include children
who live with persons in high
risk groups such as those
above, health care workers
such as doctors, nurses, and
office staff of hospitals


and long term caie facilities, as
well as the volunteers of these
facilities. These people should
be immunized as well.
Finally, the flu vaccine is
available to anyone who wants
to reduce his or her chance of
catching influenza. Those
people who you always hear
them say, "I just can't afford to
be sick" should seriously think
about it.
The vaccine begins to pro-
tect you after one to two
weeks and the shot itself will
not give you the flu.
