St. Johns

worker

shortage

presents

challenge

by KRISTA DOLAN
CONTRIBUTOR


St. Johns County's unemploy-
ment rate of 2.5 is at a historic
low, like that of Florida, but that
is a mixed blessing, said employ-
ment specialist Candace Moody.
Although most everyone who
wants a job has one, she said, the
going is tough for employers
'looking for certain workers.
The Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation last
month reported that Florida had
the fastest job .growth rate and
lowest unemployment rate of
the 10 most populous states,
based on the latest nationwide
data.
St. Johns County's rate is lower
than the statewide average of 3
percent, but this rate does not
come without some ramifica-
tions, said Moody, vice president
of communications for
WorkSource, a nonprofit agency
that matches workers and
employers in St. Johns and five
other counties.
"The baby boomers are leaving
in droves ..... [and] there's no
one to take our place," Moody
said in an interview last week.
Although America's work force
has changed much in the past
three decades, many hiring prac-
tices and policies have not fol-
lowed suit, she said.
Employers will have to start
making some concessions for
new attitudes in the workplace to
keep jobs filled, Moody said.
"We're going to have to rede-
fine what a job means," she said.
WorkSource operates within
the iegionat Flst Coast
Workforce Development, which
provides workforce-related serv-
ices to Baker, Clay, Duval,
Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns
counties, the site says.
Both are under the umbrella of
Workforce Florida, created in
2000 by former Gov. Jeb Bush
and the Florida Legislature to
- create partnerships among eco-
nomic development, workforce
development and businesses.
Moody said that today's gener-
ation perceives work very differ-
ently than earlier generations
and wants to be more independ-
ent.
The civilian labor force in St.
Johns County as of December
numbered 82,824, and 80,735 of
those were employed, according
to the Florida Research and
Economic Database (FRED).
Food and hospitality business-
es provided 17 percent of jobs in
St. Johns County, 'followed by
health care and social assistance
with 10 percent, and education
services, with 9 percent.
Construction followed closely
behind education.
Moody said the tight work
force means that employers tol-
erate things they may not have'
in the past. Some of the indus-
tries that have the most prob-
lems, she said, are hands-on type
industries and the service indus-
try.
For example, she said, in the
past if a laborer didn't show up
for work one day, the worker
would be "gone in a heartbeat,",
Moody said. But today, employ-
ers tell her, "We're taking the
four good days he gives us," she
said.
And that is a challenge, she
said.
Another issue is that entry
level work is more complex than
it used to be, she said noting that
computer skills are typically
required for even entry level
jobs.
The information technology
jobs are the ones that are the
most difficult to keep filled,
according to the director of
human resources for the St.
Johns County School District.

Tower


decision


delayed

by LAURA FOWLER
STAFF WRITER
For St. Johns County commis-
sioners, there's no question that
parts of South Ponte Vedra are
in need of cellular service -
especially on the long stretch of
State Road A1A that runs by the
Guana reserve.
But does that justify having a
155-foot cell tower that some
say would not be compatible
with its residential surround-
ings?
Commissioners struggled
with this question at Tuesday's
regular meeting, ultimately vot-
ing to delay their decision for a
tower proposed near AlA and
Mickler Road.
The board asked William
Rand, president of Verticality,
the company proposing the
tower, to come back with other
design options to try to appease:
neighboring residents.
"I don't question that you
need the tower there,":
Commissioner Jim Bryant said
to Rand.
"I'm questioning the height:
of the tower."
The tower is designed to hold
up to six antennas each 10
feet apart from cellular com:r
panies or wireless internet
providers, Rand said.
Bryant suggested the tower
could be reduced to 100 feet,
because there's no need to pro-
vide service from that many
providers.
An engineer with Verizon
Wireless, the company that 'is
helping Verticality push for the
tower, told commissioners that
100 feet is typically the

County impact fees, budget aired today


FROM STAFF
The St. Johns Board of County
Commissioners is scheduled to meet at
9 a.m. today for several workshop ses-
sions, among them discussions of the
2008 fiscal year budget and the current
list of impact fees.
In the morning session, commis-
sioners will discuss budget priorities,
including employee. salary increases,
staffing increases and operating
expenditure increases for the next
budget cycle .
The afternoon session will include a
discussion of the county's current
impact fee schedule, which assures


that new development helps pay for
itself.
The county assesses impact fees to
developers for roads, public buildings,
law enforcement, fire rescue, parks and
schools.
According to the agenda packet
material for today's meeting, the
impact fee schedule is indexed every
year according to the Annual Average
Construction Cost Index.
A county impact fee ordinance pro-
vides that the county review and sug-
gest changes to the schedule every five
years.
According to 'the agenda packet,


Church to get

Freebird's spot

by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A church will occupy the space in the Atlantic Theatres
building where the Jacksonville Beach club Freebird Live
had planned to move.
The Vineyard will relocate its beach campus from a strip
center along Third Street North to the 17,000-square-foot
theater at 751 Atlantic Blvd., Atlantic Beach.
Senior Pastor Lee Brookins Tuesday confirmed the move
and said the lease was finalized last Thursday.
"It's a done deal. We are moving April 1," he said.
Freebird, a live music venue at 200 1st St. N., had
obtained a use by exception to operate in the space adja-
cent to an existing comedy club, but last week announced
it will remain at its current location.
Brookins said church officials were surprised when
Freebird Live announced its plans to lease the space
because they had been in talks with owner Chris Hionides
for months over leasing some property.
"We were talking with him about properties, and that
was one of them," he said. "We thought [Freebird Live]
was a done deal. We just said, 'oh well, I guess that's
over.'"
Brookins said the Vineyard. has faced past opposition
when seeking permission to open new locations in both
Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach.
See CHURCH, A-3


concerns have been expressed during
past discussions that impact fees may
negatively affect economic develop-
ment, small businesses and affordable
housing.
St. Johns County currently budgets
to pay for impact fees for some afford-
able housing projects.
To avoid such negative effects, other
local governments have gone as far as
adopting alternative methods for
assessing impact fees or have chosen
to pay the fees for specific economic
developments.
. Today's special meeting will be held
at 4020 Lewis Speedway, St. Augustine.

WANTED: Man with hair

A police sketch artist would face a JR EEZE
daunting task in trying to draw a like-
ness of a car thief who abandoned his i1 .:
booty last week after driving onto a *i- ,.
XT-A T - C- .


goir course at the Ponte vedra Inn &
Club.
A St. Johns County Sheriff's report
notes that several witnesses gave con-
flicting descriptions of the suspect,
who ran away after the car got stuck in
the back yard of a home.
One woman said the suspect was a
black male. Another witness described
him as a white male with blond hair.
The Jacksonville Beach police offi-
cers who chased the car from Butler
Boulevard, however, "described the
suspet't"af a"-higianic male, with a
goatee," notes the report by Deputy
Christopher Alexander.
So, at this point, police are hard at
work searching for a man.... with hair.
who runs fast.
Good luck.

In Jax Beach, sharing is caring
Ah, Jacksonville Beach an area known for its beautiful
beaches, unique restaurants and . a plethora of readily
available drugs?
In a photo gallery on the Web site for a rock band called
Dogs of Winter, the band posted pictures of a gig in
Jacksonville Beach this past May during its Blessed Unrest
Tour.
Upon arrival at a popular night spot, the band said one of
its members "was offered more drugs in the first 10 minutes
than at any bodega in NYC."
OK, so its not the best PR campaign for the city, but at
least no one can say there's no southern hospitality here.
Those friendly drug pushers were just trying to share.
Y'all come back now, ya hear?

Leave it to Beaver to

ask what a "Hoohaa" is.




Sp ir I fl The Atlantic Theaters switched from
"vagina" to "hoo-haa" then back again
to tone down the title of the play "The
Vagina Monologues" on its marquee,
and the incident became the brouha-
ha (better yet, the hoo-haha) heard
'round the world thanks to some
national TV news coverage.
Consequently, the Beaches were
branded as an area full of, shall we say,
reactionary residents, stuck in the
Leave it to Beaver era.
But now the theater seems to have
done a 180.
The wait staff at Atlantic Theater's
comedy club Saturday night were all
wearing promotional T-shirts for the
--_ play that boldly read "Team Vagina."
Seeing the young male servers wear-
ing the clearly mandated shirts gave
some customers a good laugh as they
wondered: would the same generation
of guys balk at buying feminine
hygiene products for a wife or sister?
Those who are man enough to wear
the wordd "Vagina" proudly across
their backs certainly wouldn't blush at
having to buy a lone box of tampons,
would they?

Tower: Panel says 'try again'


BUDDY BEARS


Continued from A-i
minimum height an antenna
must reach to provide ade-
quate service.
A 100-foot tower would
allow no 'more than one or
two antennas and would most
likely reduce the service area,
the engineer said.
"I think it would be
extremely unwise to lower the
height of the tower," Rand
told commissioners.
The tower would be barely
visible, according to Rand,
because it is a "stealth mono-
pole" with all the carrier
antennas mounted on the
inside.
It would look like a flagless
flag pole, he said.
But residents who live near
the small shopping center
where the tower is proposed
said they don't care they
don't want it in their back
yards.
"There's nothing stealth
about it," said Clara Cowan, a
resident of the neighboring
community of Seaside.
"The members [of Seaside]
believe this tower will be an
eyesore and negatively affect
the community."
Cowan also spoke on behalf


of the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition, of which she is
president.
She said the Coalition
approved a resolution in
October asking commission-
ers to strictly uphold the
county's current communica-
tion tower ordinance.
In order for the tower to be
built, commissioners would
have to OK a reduction in the
setback requirement for a fall
zone from the 250 feet
required to 150 feet.
The tower also would be
built within 600 feet of AlA, a
scenic highway, which means
it has to be an- alternative
structure not just a regular
lattice tower and an actual
need for service must be
proven.
In October, the St. Johns
County Planning and Zoning
Agency (PZA) concluded that
both of those requirements
were met. They recommended
approving the tower by grant-
ing the setback modifications
and the scenic highway waiv-
er.
The PZA, however, earlier
voted to deny a similar tower
proposed by Verticality on
Roscoe Boulevard.


Rand has filed a lawsuit
against the county for that
decision, which he claims vio-
lated federal laws prohibiting
governments from denying
citizens cellular service.
Commissioner Tom
Manuel, who represents Ponte
Vedra, said Tuesday that one
of his constituents sent him a
photograph of a cell tower
that looks like a bell tower, a
design Verticality should con-
sider for the Mickler Road
tower.
Manuel also noted that a
suggestion by a resident to
move the tower more than a
mile to the west, near the
Publix at Mickler Road and
County Road 210, would pro-
vide better service to Roscoe.
Rand said he considered
that location but was told by
owners that it was off limits
for cell towers. He also said
that location would interfere
with a nearby tower and
would reduce service to the
Guana.
Still, Manuel said Rand
should consider other design
options and other locations
for the tower, and present
those options at the rinext
meeting.


Workers: Employers flexible


Continued from A-1
Workers with IT skills "can
skip around and find higher
paying jobs than we're able to
pay," said Jim Springfield, who
has been human resources direc-
tor for the School District for
five years.
Springfield said about 95 per-
cent of the district's jobs have
"lots of applicants," adding,
"We do have special areas that
we're concerned about," includ-
ing IT and the lower-paying
jobs, and some part-time jobs.
A visit to the School District's
Web site this week showed
openings for three instructional
personnel, numerous adminis-
trative posts (including the job
of principal for the new Ponte
Vedra high school, and custodi-
al, maintenance, food service
and teacher aid positions.
Some larger. companies with
more advanced human
resources systems, such as those
in the finance and insurance
industries, have had to relax
some standards of reading, writ-
.,* ) . '


ing, and mathematics to
increase the pool of applicants,
Moody said.
Some companies also used to
perform personality screenings
and are no longer doing those,
she said.
"There are some industries
whose applicant pool has dried
up," she said, like skilled crafts
such as ship building.
Retention of employees also
has been a challenge for human
resources experts, she said.
One way to address the prob-
lems is for companies to be
more flexible by offering, for
example, flexible work sched-
ules.
But one of Ponte Vedra
Beach's biggest employers the
Sawgrass Marriott Resort has
already applied such measures
and is still hurting for employ-
ees.
Jeffrey Oliasami, hotel man-
ager for the Sawgrass Marriott
and .president of the Ponte
Vedra Beach Chamber of
Commerce, said the shrinking


inventory of affordable housing
at the Beaches has been the
biggest problem in the past
three or four years.
"It's just that people who'are
available to work aren't living in
this area," he said.
"There are many, many peo-
ple who are willing to work at

difficulty getting here, or it's
costing them too much money
to drive their cars," Oliasami
said in a telephone interview
last week.
Oliasami has been promoting
a regular bus run into Ponte
Vedra Beach from Duval
County, because the bus service
now stops at the county line on
Third Street.
The Marriott, like other com-
panies, is already offering flex
time and adjusted shifts,
Oliasami said.
"Everyone's being more flexi-
ble, but there's still not enough
employees."

Construction tape and safety cones mark the beginning of the Home Depot construction at South
Beach Regional Shopping Center in Jacksonville Beach. A 12-foot concrete and panel screen
wall will be installed at the rear of the former K-Mart building to block sound. Once the wall is in,
crews will demolish the former retail store and rebuild the Home Depot using the same square
footage. Demolition is expected to take up to four months and construction is estimated to take six
months.

Man running in traffic, claiming

to be Jesus is tasered, arrested in JB


FROM STAFF
A St. Augustine man dressed
in his underwear and claiming
to be Jesus Christ was arrested
Saturday after .interfering with
traffic near the J. Turner Butler
bridge in Jacksonville Beach.
Richard Price Pickard, 57,
was wearing only socks and
boxer shorts when he was
charged with resisting arrest
with violence after fighting,


with officers trying to stop him
from running into oncoming
traffic, the report said.
Police responded to the call
and said they observed Pickard
with glassy eyes and his left
arm drawn up to his chest on
the east side of the bridge.
Pickard refused to speak with
officers and swore at them
when they attempted to reach
for him. He was hit with a taser


after he displayed aggressive
behavior toward police but
pulled it out and tried to run
up the bridge into traffic.
Officers tackled Pickard on
the side of the road and
deployed several more rounds
from the taser because he con-
tinued to resist and stated that
he was Jesus Christ.


Church: Growth requires more room


Continued from A-i
The church tried unsuccess-
fully to move into the former
Scotty's Hardware store in
Neptune Beach and into an
oceanfront property near the
pier in Jacksonville Beach.
"Storefront space is hard to
find because people want
stores, not churches," Brookins
said. "They are trying to draw
in customers."


The Jacksonville Beach City
Council rejected ,plans for the
Vineyard to move into the
downtown redevelopment dis-
trict because it would take up
commercial space and could
not fulfill the city's parking
requirements.
Growing pains prompted
both Freebird Live and The
Vineyard to seek larger digs.
Freebird owner Judy Jenness


said the club was losing big
name acts because the club's
stage is too small. Brookins
said the church services are
standing room only.
"We've been there for five
years. We've just outgrown
ourselves," he said. "We are
going from 7,000-square-feet
to 17,000-square-feet. This will
allow us to grow."

The Leader's Opinion


Use Beach in name only

when near a shoreline

Surfed in Starke lately? Been to Middleburg Beach?
The answers are probably no, but we're not crazy for
asking.
Consider that developers are trying to get the county's
authorization to create a Beach Community Development
District.
The district is bounded by Hodges Boulevard on the east
and Kernan Boulevard on the west both of which are
literally miles from the Beaches.
If you are going to label an area Beach shouldn't there
at least be a whiff of salt air to enjoy?
We understand the marketing value of coastal real estate
and the joys of living by the shoreline. But slapping the
tag Beaches on a development so far from our shores is
misleading at best. Are the developers going to suggest
that residents of the development are just a "short stroll"
from the beach?
What's in a name? The answer is confusion for this pro-
posed development.
Perhaps the county could consent to the district if it
were renamed "Not Really Close to the Beach Community
Development District."
If this proposed moniker flies, then why not Middleburg
Beach or Palatka by the Sea?

Penman Road overhaul

needed to make it safer


To the editor:
I guess I've listened to all
that I can about the pros and
cons of trying to fix Penman
Road.
I was very upset about the
comments of the lady who has
lived on Penman Road. I have
lived on Penman Road for 51
years. There have been two
major overhauls. The lady did
live on Penman Road, but was
fortunate enough to have her
driveway on Coral Way so she
did not have to enter directly
on Penman Road.
When we first moved here
there were only 14 houses
between 18th Avenue North
and Arden Way. There was
nothing to the west and only a
field on the east to 10th Street
at the San Pablo School area.
Over the years, the street and
drainage are so much better. I
think that the best thing that
can be done is the reducing of
the speed limit to 30 miles per
hour as they have done on
Florida Boulevard in Neptune
Beach. As the lady who has


moved from Penman in
Jacksonville Beach to Penman
in Neptune Beach has said,
Penman is very lovely and safe
and not in the need of beauti-
fication.
With so many drivers going
between Beach and Atlantic
Boulevards, we are in dire need
of a safer road. If drivers would
give the residents who live on
Penman who are trying to get
in or out of their driveways
some consideration, it would
surely ease up the traffic prob-
lems. Many drivers are consid-
erate and it's great to know
that many do think of others.
Their kindness is always so
much appreciated.
It would also be nice ad
safer if somehow the problem
of flooding during the heavy
rains could be solved. 1, as a
resident of Penman, always
sincerely appreciate any
improvements that can be
made on Penman Road.

Earning less gets you more if at all


"Let .me get this straight.
You've developed a foolproof
scheme to dramatically reduce
your taxes."
"You got it. I've been working
to perfect it for a long time, but,
boy, does it work."
"Get to it then."
"In the old days, I dreamed of
getting rich. I started my own
business and worked my tail off.
It was then I learned I had silent
partners."
"Silent partners?"
"Yes, the local, state and feder-
al governments. They consid-
ered every dollar of profit a dol-
lar of taxable income. When I
realized how much my taxes
were, I nearly ate my check-
book."
"But of course. When you
were an employee, many taxes
were hidden from you. When
you become self-employed, all
those taxes became painfully
visible."
"Precisely. My employer had
paid half my Social Security and
Medicare taxes. My employer
paid my workers' compensa-
tion, health insurance and
other benefits. I had no idea
.that the total cost of employing
me ,was roughly : 30 percent
more than my salary" .
"At least 30 percent."
"Now I know that Social
Security and Medicare eat up
15.3 percent of my income. Add
in federal, state and local taxes
and my total rate is shocking.
The income I earn beyond
$31,000 is taxed at 44.67 per-
cent. Income beyond $75,000 is
taxed at 47.67 percent."
"Serves you right for being
'rich.'"
"Good one. I never under-
stood why I was punished for
making more. If I generated


TOM PURCELL
COLUMNIST

$100,000 in income, for
instance, the taxes I'd pay on
the first $50,000 would be
roughly half 'as much as on the
second $50,000. The higher my
income, the higher the percent-
age taken by my fi"
"Silent partners? That's the
breaks in a progressive system."
"But why not encourage peo-
ple to earn more? Why not a flat
tax that rewards hard work?
Then people work harder, earn
more and pump more back into
.the economy. The; economy
"booms and the'governmewt gets
higher receipts on lower tax
rates. It's not rocket science."'
"You're speaking common
sense, but when did common
sense ever have anything to do
with America's tax code?"
"Well, I got tired of working
twice as hard to keep half as
much. So I stopped working
hard altogether. I started work-
ing part time. My revenue fell to
half what it normally was."
"Half! That's no good."
"But it was great! I got an
oldtcar and a cheaper place to


live. I spent more time at the
park. Itread more books at the
library. Life was better than ever.
And then I got an unexpected
gift from my silent partners!"
"A gift!"
"Yes, a tax refund, the first I'd
gotten in years. Because my
income was down to half, my
tax burden dropped significant-
ly. It was then that I stumbled
into my tax-reduction scheme."
"Go on."
"According to The New York
Times, the top 20 percent of
income earners paid 67.1 per-
cent of all federal taxes. But
families in the bottom 40 per-
cent paid no federal income tax
-- yet they still received money
back from the government."
"I'm listening."
"That's when it hit me. I'd
worked so hard for so many
years. I spent thousands on
CPAs, trying to minimize my
taxes to a reasonable amount.
But the key to low taxes was
right under my nose all along:
just earn less!"
"Very clever."
"I know it's selfish of me to
earn less. I know it's bad for the
-economy and-the government.
But thattis what my sileht part-
ners have encouraged me to do.
Democrats in Congress will
surely raise taxes -- they'll
encourage me to work even
less!"
"I hate to admit it, but your
ideas are oddly sensible. Where
to from here?"
"I'm still perfecting my
scheme, but next year I have big
plans. My goal is to earn noth-
ing!"
"Nothing?"
"We all have our dreams."


possible


Tt looks as though the bird
flu bug is still flying. The
Jan. 29 issue of Time maga-
zine reported that several out-
breaks overseas have occurred
already this year, mostly in
Asian and African countries.
So, again, there's fear of a
pandemic---an epidemic cov-
ering a wide geographic area
and affecting a large propor-
tion of the population.
Last year, my former
employer, Prudential, which
has operations in some of .the
countries, set up a system to
deal with a pandemic in phas-
es. The project was covered in
the April/May copy of the
employee magazine. I think
it's a very sound approach
and should help to avoid the
dissemination of the disease
in the workplace. However, I
kind of doubt that one part of
it would be effective among
the population off company
premises, around here any-

That'g' the :instiructidn
which calls for "social dis-
tancing at the office"---limit-
ing face-to-face meetings and
requiring that employees sit a
minimum of three feet away
from each other, to prevent
the spread of anything. I reck-
on the' most flagrant and dan-
gerous violations of these
rules would be hugging and
kissing.
In my thirty-five years with
the company, I don't recall
any embracing and bussing
going on at work. However,
away from the office, it would
probably be extremely diffi-
cult to prevent those activi-
ties. In non-commercial,
social locations, people here
in the South appear to have a
strong compulsion to demon-
strate their fondness for oth-
ers by bestowing a squeeze
and/or a smooch on them.
I've seen individuals make a
complete trip around the bar,
greeting all their friends and
acquaintances thusly and,
when introduced, even some
folks they didn't know. Heck,
I have done it myself, so as
not to imply distaste for any-
one, particularly if another
attendee has just done so. It's
a little like a chain letter: You
don't want to be the one who
breaks the chain.
Thankfully, there's a solu-
tion, one I've already pro-
posed for football. If a team is
determined to keep the oppo-
sition from blocking or tack-
ling them, they simply each
chew a clove of fresh garlic
before gametime. Nobody on
the other team would like to
get close to them. No way.
Phew!
Similarly, in a non-athletic
environment such as an office
or a cocktail pdrty, no non-
garlicked individual would be
inclined to get near one who
has been garlic-armed. Hey,
you wanna be asphyxiated?!
Naturally, though, if everyone
present has munched the
stinky stuff, the protection
cancels out and no folks
choke. Possible answer: ration
garlic.

To the editor:
Over the last 18 months, 800
beaches low-income service
workers and their families have
lost their housing due to
condo conversions and mobile
home park closings. The con-
dos being built in place of their
rental units are priced far out
of reach for these families. Out
of necessity, these families
have moved to other parts of
town away from beaches jobs,
neighborhoods, churches,
schools and communities. As a
result of this mass exodus of
low income workers, the
beaches social service agencies,
government officials and other
concerned community mem-
bers organized the Beaches
Housing Coalition in 2006 to
address this critical loss of nec-
essary housing for beaches
workers.
Last Spring Beaches Habitat
(a member of the coalition)
identified property at the
beach that would be suitable to
build replacement housing for
this group of workers. The
most promising parcel of land
was 10 acres of unimproved
property located on Mayport
oad and owned by the City of
Jacksonville. This property was
brought to the attention of
Councilwoman Elaine Brown
.who was very optimistic about
the possibilities for putting
"affordable housing" on it and
began pushing very hard to
mpke that happen. Brown has
been sympathetic to issues
around families displaced by
the loss of housing at the
beach.
A City of Jacksonville
Affordable/Workforce Housing
Task Force was established to
address this growing problem.
This Task Force determined


that their main focus was
going to be "Workforce
Housing". Unfortunately, the
"workforce" that they have
identified is only those work-
ers that earn between 50-120%
of median area income
($31,000-$75,000). This does
not address those workers in
the most urgent need of hous-
ing, those service workers who
earn between 30%-50% of area
median income ($18,000-
$30,000). These workers make
too much money to qualify for
government subsidized hous-
ing and too little to afford to
rent or own the vast majority
of housing currently available
in Jacksonville. The interest-
ing thing is that this group of
workers represents the fastest
growing segment of the work-
force in our city. According to
the Times Union First Business
Section dated Feb.27, 2006, the
10 fastest growing jobs in
Jacksonville over -the next
decade include 8 in the service
arena: food preparers, waitress-
es, manual laborers, retail
salespeople, refuse material
collectors, construction work-
er, customer service representa-
tive and janitors/cleaners who
will .make on average slightly
less than $9.00/hour ( $18,720
per year). Based on the nation-
al standard for housing afford-
ability, (30% of income) these
people can only afford rent of
$468.00 per month.
The City of Jacksonville
recently sent out an RFP
(Request for Proposal) for the
10 acres on Mayport Road. The
RFP specified that the housing
to be built on the property
would be "workforce housing"
for those workers who earn
between $31,000 and $80,000.
Of the four proposals submit-


ted only one would be in the
price range that our beaches
service workers can afford; this
proposal was submitted by
Beaches Habitat. The other
three proposals represent con-
dominiums which will cost
between $150,000-$200,000,
ironically the same type of
condominiums that displaced
our service workers at the
beach in the first place.
According to public records,
there are currently over 1100
units in this price range being
developed within a 2-mile
radius of this property. One
development just north of this
property and one just west of
this property, both being
developed by DR Horton. In
additional there are another
240 units in this price range
being developed by DR Horton
just 5 miles away. That would
be a total of 1340 units within
a 5- mile radius being devel-
oped for this same segment of
the workforce but no units
being developed for the seg-
ment of the workforce in the
30%-50% of median income
range.
With this large number of
condos already on the market
does it really make sense for
the City of Jacksonville to be
giving away property to devel-
opers for even more of these
same priced condos to be
built? Wouldn't it make more
sense to use this property to
address desperately needed
rental housing for the most
critical "workforce" need at the
beach... service workers?

JB tweaks ACLU sets annual meet


emergency

planning

language


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A city ordinance that regu-
lates emergency planning,
response and recovery was
amended on its first reading
Monday to address multiple
issues that could arise in dif-
ferent types of disasters.
The City Council approved
the amendment which
replaces the term state of
emergency with civil emer-
gencies to reflect the impor-
tance of a multi-hazard emer-
gency plan.
"This is some pretty serious
business," City Manager
George Forbes said.
Forbes said the new lan-
guage distributes power to the
mayor and city manager to
declare and extend a state of
emergency and defines the
types of disasters.
It also covers emergency
response costs and spells out
the responsibility for debris
removal.
"Basically whatever it takes
to keep the city moving for-
ward in a disaster," Forbes
said. "I honestly pray that
never happens."
Fire Chief Gary Frazier, who
is also the city's emergency
management coordinator, is
responsible for updating the
city's emergency management
plan to safeguard against all
disaster-related scenarios.

Auto insurer predicts savings for
Florida customers after October


FROM STAFF
Once Florida's No-Fault
auto insurance system ends in
October, many customers
may see savings. State Farm
filed this week for an average
auto rate decrease of approxi-
mately 16 percent, which,
according to the company,
reflects savings Florida cus-
tomers will see. According to
the new rates filed, State Farm
auto customers in Florida will
save an annual average of
$360 per two-car household
once No-Fault ends.
Overall premium changes
for individual motorists will
vary depending on factors
such as the coverages they
carry, the discounts for which


they qualify, where they live,
the kind of car insured, who
drives it and how much it is
driven, the insuror said.
The Florida No-Fault system
is set to end by October 2007
if. no additional action is
taken by Legislators to rein-
state or extend the No-Fault
law.
With No-Fault gone, drivers
who cause automobile acci-
dents will be held account-'
able for paying car repair and
injury damages for those they
hit, and there will no longer
be restrictions on a person's
right to file suit if someone
injures them in an automo-
bile accident, State Farm offi-
cials said.

rezoning plans
FROM STAFF

A Holiday Inn Express may
be built on the west side of
Mayport Road if an applica-
tion for rezoning is approved
by the City of Jacksonville,
according to Greg S..
Kupperman, a land planning
and development consultant.
Kupperman, who represents
the development company,
Mayport Lodging, Inc., briefed
Mayport Waterfront
Partnership members at a
meeting Tuesday regarding
the proposed Holiday Inn
Express.
The preliminary plan pro-
poses 72 rooms and a swim-
ming pool on the 2.8-acre
property which lies 300 feet
north of Dutton Island Road,
according to Kupperman.
The proposed hotel site, 2040
Mayport Road, is currently
vacant.
In addition to the hotel, two
outparcels may be built and
could include a restaurant,
according to Kupperman.
The application has several
processing steps, but if every-
thing is approved, work could
begin in late March,
Kupperman said.

Club league kicks off spring season

STAFF WRITER
The Ponte Vedra Lacrosse Club, whose
nickname is the Predators, held an open-
ing festival Sunday that saw a strong
turnout on a chilly day at the Landrum
Middle School fields.
Upwards of 200 youngsters, grades four
to eight for girls and grades two to eight
for boys, have signed up for the spring
program.
The club shows an increase in registra-
tion for both genders: up from 65 last
year to 80 this season for girls, and up
from 75 to 110 for boys. Seventh- and
eighth-graders make up half the total on
the boys side.
Boys and girls were combined at
Sunday's festival and went through six
training stations: two for shooting -
one of which was against "Hector the
Rejector," an in-goal image that covers
most of the net; three-cornered passing;
running relay; ball-on-ground relay, and
fastest shot.
Michael Power had the boys' fastest

shot of 75 mph, and Paige Jones had
the fastest shot among the girls at 49
mph.
The Ponte Vedra Lacrosse Club,
which began in 2000, is headed by
Dan McAuliffe in the boys program
and Gerry Santillo for the girls.
The girls start practicing Sunday
and likely will play their games on
Sunday, as well.
The boys start practicing Monday
and will practice Mondays and
Wednesday.
The boys' season begins when the
senior Blue Team plays at Episcopal'
March 12.
A Ponte Vedra Predator-hosted
jamboree is scheduled for March 31
on the Landrum fields.
Players scheduled to take part in
the jamboree are from Savannah,
GA., Tallahassee and Palm Coast,
Fla., and, from the immediate area,
Bolles, Episcopal, the Creeks in
Northwest St. Johns County and
Ponte Vedra Beach.

Managing canteen at Palm Valley



Legion post suits former stockbroker

Joyce Wright of Ponte Vedra Beach is the canteen manager
at American Legion Post 233 in Palm Valley.

COLUMNIST

years ago that being in
the kitchen is just fine
ith her.
Chopping, doing all the
prep work, and then enjoy-
ing the wonderful smell of
good food cooking is what
makes this Ponte Vedra
Beach resident happy.
Wright has been cooking
since her childhood. She
grew up in the small town of
Casa, Ark., (population 80).
This was the kind of south-
ern town where everyone
was kinfolk, she said. Her
family ran a diner in town.
Wright helped at the diner,
and quickly learned that it
was more fun to cook than
to wash the dishes and scrub
the pots and pans.
As a waitress at a pizza
restaurant while in high
school, Wright frequently
helped make pizzas and
spaghetti and meatballs.
Over the years, Wright has
accumulated a collection of
about 200 cookbooks, which,


COOKS


she said, she reads "like nov-
els," always looking for a
new recipe to try. She likes
sharing recipes and sends a
favorite recipe along with
her Christmas cards every
year.
When Wright retired a few
years ago from a 20-year
career as a stockbroker, she
was happy to have more
time to spend in the kitchen.
She found herself cooking
three big meals a day for her-
self and her husband, Mike,
which she said was more
than they really needed.
About a year ago, Wright
agreed to serve as canteen
manager at American Legion
Post 233 in Palm Valley.
There she oversees the
kitchen operation and cooks
for many of the meals served

Working at Post 233 has
turned out to be a great job
for a woman who enjoys
everything about cooking
and who grew up in small,
close-knit town.
The Post is like a family
and it doesn't take long for
someone new to feel at
home, she said.
Some people come in every
day. Everyone looks forward
to good food here which we
try to provide at a reasonable
price.
Wright said that she loves
to make soups and will often
make a pot for board meet-
ings at the Post.
Creamy Kale Soup is a
favorite and the recipe makes
enough to serve a lot of peo-
ple. Kale, a cold weather
green with a mild flavor, is
her first choice but fresh
spinach or salad greens can
also be used in this recipe.
Tomato Basil Tart is a ver-
satile dish that works well
for any meal of the day or
for party fare. For breakfast
or brunch, serve it with
scrambled eggs. It also makes
a great appetizer or side with


a bigger meal.
Whenever Wright has
house guests, she likes to a
have a pan of Chicken
Spaghetti Casserole in the
freezer. Everyone enjoys this
dish, she said, and it comes
in handy to have this ready
for a last minute meal.
For Chicken in Mustard
Sauce, cook boneless chicken
thighs in Chardonnay and
then add Dijon mustard and
heavy cream to the pan
juices for a rich sauce.
Removing the bone from a
chicken thigh only takes a
couple minutes, said Wright.
Wright's recipe for Baked.
Shrimp is easy and makes
what some people have told
her is the best shrimp. Use
the shrimp in the shells and
all tjhe pepper listed in the
recipe for the best flavor
which is surprisingly not hot
and spicy, she said. Serve this
dish with a good crusty loaf
of bread for dipping in the
sauce.

Recipes: Best Darn Chocolate Cake at Post 233


WEDDING


Cont. from A-9
Chocolate Cake says it all,
said Wright. Pecans and a
buttery topping of cream
cheese and confectioners
sugar baked into the cake
make this a favorite of
chocolate lovers.
Another of Wright's
favorite desserts is Frozen
Margarita Pie. This is made
with a salty pretzel crust to
balance the sweetened lime
pie filling that has a taste of
both tequila and Grand
Marnier.

The following are some of
Joyce Wright's favorite recipes.

Creamy Kale Soup

1 lb. fresh green kale
2 14.5 oz. cans chicken
broth

TodaY's hectic schedules keep us on the
go, and getting the uninterrupted sleep
researchers sav\ we need can be a challenge.
A top-qualiht mattress can be the first step
to quality sleep. Dave Fox, factor\-trained
and -certihed mattress specialist and owner
of Bedtime USA in Jacksonville Beach, can
help you find a mattress tailored to your
individual preferences so you can get the
rest you need and deserve.
Family-owned and operated and celebrat-
ing four years in business in Jacksonville
Beach, Bedtime LISA is your mattress head-
quarters. Dave and his staff have the expert-
ise and inventory you need to help you find
the right mattress at the right price
"\We are not a chain, yet we are one of the
only stores in northeast Florida and south-
east (Georgia that carries such a complete
line of mattresses and bedding products,"
Ssaid Dave, who himself has more than 20
N years of experience in the business and has
lived at the Beaches for eight years. "We
have more than 40 mattresses on display,
and \we'll help you find the one that's just
right for you and your budget"'
No matter what type of mattress you're
looking for. Bedtime USA most likely has it.
The list of brand-name products available is
impressive, including mattresses by
; Tempur-Pedic, Simmons, Englander,
^ Restonic, Spring Air, Chattam & Wells, and
King Koil and futons bv Adonis Furniture
v, and Night and Day Furniture.
.'" "\\e carr\ all seven models of the popular
Tempur-Pedic brand including the
GrandBed and the Rhapsod\ Bed often
described as the 'Cadillac' of mattresses
because of its extravagant design and
unsurpassed luxury." Dave said. "No matter
what type of mattress you peter a natu- Bedtime USA o
ral latex mattress, a visco-elastic memory at the beach -
foam mattress, a traditional innerspring mattresses, adji
mattress or an\ combination of these, we Jacksonville Be
carry it," he added.
The importance of a good night's sleep becomes apparent
when Dave reminds customers that they'll spend one third
of their lives in bed. '"So at Bedtime USA customer comfort is
our no. 1 priority comfort in a mattress and comfort in its
price," Dave said.
"Because we have so man\ mattresses in our inventory, we
can offei our customers the most comfortable mattress avail-
able in the most comfortable price range for them," he
added. "For example, we have twin sets for as low as $199.95
and queen sets for as low as $299.95."
j Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the low-
est price the manufacturer allows, which means twin
Tempur-Pedic mattresses start as low as $1,199.
But Bedtime USA has more than the mattress of your
dreams ipun intended. "\Ve also carry\ a wide selection of
adjustable beds plus bed frames, platform-type beds, head-
boards, futons, futon covers, pillows, bolsters, bed pads, mat-
tress protectors and even some 'beachy' decorative items,"
Dave said
Expecting overnight guests this spring? Bedtime LISA can
help. "\e carry Adonis Furniture and Night and Day
Furniture, which manufacture some of the best futons avail-
able," Dave said. "They offer 80 different designs of futons,
and we showcase 15 models in our store, not to mention
more than 300 fabric samples from SIS Fabrics, a leader in
designer furniture upholstery." Plus, Bedtime USA adds a
futon mattress cover with every futon frame and mattress
purchase.


wner Dave Fox says there's only one thing better than sleeping
and that's sleeping at the beach on one of the top-of-the-line
stable beds and futons available at Bedtime USA in
ach.
But Bedtime USA offers even more than wide selection and
variety, according to Dave. "We also provide a level of per-
sonalized customer service not found in many larger chains
and that makes us different," he said. "At Bedtime USA we
take care of our customers, work with them one on one and
help them make sound purchasing decisions."
Bedtime LISA also offers free delivery throughout the
Greater Jacksonville area on a schedule convenient for cus-
tomers and their schedules. Some retailers offer a three-hour
or even half-day delivery "window." Not Bedtime USA. "Not
only do we give our customers a one-hour delivery schedule
but we also give them a call when the delivery truck leaves
the store," Dave said.
Stop by Bedtime LISA and talk with Dave to see how you
can treat yourself to some well-deserved rest. Be sure to ask
about special spring financing, too, which offers zero-percent
financing over three years for Tempur-Pedic products and
zero-percent financing for 12 months for all other merchan-
dise totaling more than $800.

Defense keys Panthers' first-ever boys soccer title


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

FORT LAUDERDALE Seven steps. Call
it a recovery program for the Nease boys
soccer team which hadn't advanced past
the regional round of the playoffs in four
years.
Panthers head coach
Ken Kirsch wrote "Seven
Steps" on a dry-erase
board when he met with
his team for the first time
in the preseason.
"They didn't know what
it was and eventually I
had to tell them it was .
seven wins from the dis-
trict playoffs to the state .
championship," said
Kirsch, in his first season PH RATES
at Nease. "Seven steps. PIRATES
They bought into my sys- PANTHE F
tern.
"I told them at the end of the game
today, 'I suckered you. You bought into
the system.'"
That system delivered the Nease boys
their first-ever state championship with
Saturday's 1-0 victory over Fernandina
Beach on a sun-splashed Lockhart Stadium
field. The lone goal was AJ. Nelson's left-

footed blast almost 34 minutes into the
first half.
"Joe McKinley had a transition and he
just played a pinpoint ball," said Nelson.
"He really threaded the needle and I got
through, took one touch and volleyed it
in."
On the play, Nelson spilt two Pirates
defenders and beat goal-
the left side from about 15
yards out. The sopho-
more's goal was the first
scored against Femandina
Beach in seven games,
including four postseason
contests leading up to the
Class 4A championship
LA match.
"We weren't able to get a
0 goal and they did," said
Pirates head coach Josh
S1 Dunn. "That's the story
right there. I thought we
played well, but we just couldn't get a goal
out there or many opportunities for
that matter."
In fact, neither team managed much
offense. Nease had just three shots on goal
while the Pirates notched six, all saved by
Panthers goalkeeper Austin Davis, who
was named by the Florida Sports Writers


Association as tournament MVP.
"That's well deserved," said Kirsch.
"Since the Tampa tournament Austin
didn't have a great tournament but
from that point on, though, we've really
worked on his game. Things like being
physical, communicating and catching
balls at the highest point.
"Since Tampa, he's been our best play-
er."
Davis, a sophomore, recorded back-to-
back shutouts in Fort Lauderdale.
"It's just a tremendous feeling to hold
that trophy," said Davis, referring to the
state championship award. "It just shows
how hard we worked to get here and how
tough our defense is."
His head coach readily agreed. "Our
game's defense and we won with defense,"
the 31-year-old Kirsch said.
As to the specifics of what Nease did to
shut down Merritt Island (138 goals in 28
games) and a Fernandina Beach side fea-
turing the one-two scoring punch of Luis
Rojas (25 goals) and William Hurt (19
goals, 11 assists), Kirsch credited the tenets
he's been preaching since the first day of
practice last fall.
"It's about structure and communica-
tion. Being a defensive-minded coach, I

Anglers busy preparing for El Cheapo tourney


Sheepshead anglers spent
most of last week preparing
for next Saturday's El
Cheapo Sheepshead
Tournament. On the
Jacksonville Beach Pier and in
the surf a few more whiting
were caught last week. Small
blues and drum are also begin-
ning to show.
Capts. Mike Morris and
David King spent Tuesday and
Wednesday mornings anchored
along the big jetties practicing
for the El Cheapo tournament,
which is set to take place
Saturday. They caught their
limit of toothy ones each day
weighing up to six pounds.
Last Saturday, Brook Daily
used live fiddlers along the
south jetties and caught his
limit of sheepshead.
Last Thursday, Jonathan
Tomlinson released three red
bass in the canal and on Friday

tried several spots along the jet-
ties and caught eight
sheepshead to eight pounds,
three reds, two flounder and
several trout.
James Gergley and his buddy
Mike Tandarich fished from the
"Head Hunter" last Wednesday
in some of their favorite feeder

creeks and caught seven reds to
25 inches and a pair of trout
which they released, of course.
Capt. David Sipler fishing
alone on Tuesday reports a
catch of six reds to 23 inches,
three sheepshead and five trout.
Capt. Bob Cosby checked in
after a trip last week with 20
blues, a red bass, one eight-
pound sheepshead and a release
of six trout.
On a second trip to the canal
and feeder creeks last Tuesday,
James Gergley released seven
red bass, six trout and four
flounder.
Jeff Wansor used grubs last
week on a trip to one of his
secret spots in the canal and
caught 18 flounder.
Larry "Fishman" Finch was
standing in the surf at Daytona
Beach when I called him
Sunday afternoon. He was
catching whiting, pompano
and drum.

and being communicative, talk-
ing to each other on the field.
"As a sweeper, you see every-
thing. As a goalkeeper, you see
everything. So it was just a
question of Kyle Ringeisen and
Austin making sure every man
was marked and being struc-
turally sound. And we are."
The state title game lacked


the electricity and urgency on
display Friday evening as
Fernandina Beach upended
Jesuit, 1-0, in a back-and-forth
semifinal match.
In the nightcap Friday, Nease
employed a lockdown defense
on previously unbeaten Merritt
Island (28-0-0 entering the con-
test) and emerged with a 2-0
victory on goals by Ryan
Corning and Palmer Davis.
"Merritt Island wasn't expect-


ing us to come out as hard as
we did," said Nelson, who
earned an assist on Davis's goal.
"They didn't have a loss this
whole season
and we put
two goals on
them. Two-
nil. I mean, Our garr

know what and we wA

up to the final
four, Merritt
Island was Kei
voted as the Panther
No. 1 team in heac
the country in
the
NSCAA/adidas high school
winter soccer poll.
"They worked harder than
we did," Mustangs coach
Scooty Carey said of Nease. "As
much as we preached about
not looking past them, [we]
did. I take responsibility for
that."

While the Merritt Island
match was a physical affair that
resulted in red cards for two
Mustangs players late in the

Kirsch around for a

This game is
supposed to be
the ultimate of the two best
teams.
"In this game, I thought there
was no energy. Fatigue had a lot
to do with it. They came at us
hard and I was extremely wor-

kept thinking, 'Man, these guys

enough, we held them off and
we got that goal."
After Nelson's score, the
Panthers dropped back on
defense and relied on their
stingy, overlapping scheme to
break up most Femandina.
Beach scoring opportunities.
"Now we get a banner, just


like the girls team did," Kirsch
said, referring to the three state
titles the Panthers have won in
the past six seasons. "And we'll
get a big team picture on the
wall in the gym.: We need two
more to match the girls,
though. Well, it'll just feel great
to be up there with them."

and energy Energy Management
ist of indoor One of the simplest ways to reduce
owners can energy costs is to install a programma-
-nsive, effec- ble thermostat to automatically change
the home's temperature based on sched-
Id ule and lifestyle. Studies show a pro-
* the home grammable thermostat can save up to
Id particles, 30 percent a year on heating and cool-
fungi, dust ing bills.
)ns, allergic Indoor Pollutants/Allergens
addition, an According to the American Lung
excess mois- Association, "poor indoor air quality
regardless of can cause or contribute to the develop-
1 the condi- ment of or worsen chronic lung diseases
damage and such as lung cancer or asthma. In addi-
ainants, The tion, it can cause headaches, dry eyes,
nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue.
People who already have respiratory dis-
eases are at greater risk for problems
caused by poor indoor air quality." In
hi order to combat airborne allergens and
i '... other irritants circulating through the
house, homeowners can have a Whole-
ltng': Home Air Cleaner installed as part of
their heating and cooling system. These
furnace-mounted systems only require
annual maintenance and help clean all
of the air circulating through the home.
Dedlorpment Hot and Cold Spots
In a typical two-story home, the
ptimpn-htn ir upstairs can be 10 degrees warmer than
nd nhiii... the downstairs. One solution to help
regulate uneven temperatures is a
462 Zoned Comfort Control System. The
system divides the house into separate
zones using thermostats and smart con-
trols that only sends hot' or cold air
where needed. This allows the home-
owner to control the temperature in
Separate areas of the home. The result is
greater comfort and convenience as well
as potential energy savings of up to 20
C percent.
**o Contaminated Indoor Air
According to the Consumer Product
k 1 Safety Commission, "if too little out-
J- door air enters a home, pollutants can
'LUMBER accumulate to levels that can pose
health and comfort problems. Unless
they are built with dedicated mechani-
cal ventilation, homes that are designed
and constructed to minimize the
ERVICE amount of outdoor air that can "leak"
.INCE 1973 into and out of the home may have
higher pollutant levels than other
RF0037503 homes."
