Road extension

idea is scrapped

A request to extend
Jacksonville Beach's South Beach
Parkway south to meet Ponte
Vedra Lakes Boulevard was
scrapped Monday after members
of the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition expressed opposition.
St. Johns County
Commissioner Tom Manuel, who
represents Ponte Vedra, said he
was asked by a Coalition member
to look into extending the road
for evacuation purposes.
Manuel asked county adminis-
trators to investigate whether the
road extension would be feasible
and whether it would help allevi-
ate traffic problems.
But the message from most of
the Coalition members in
Monday's meeting was a resound-
ing "No."
"We fought that [eight- years
ago] and we thought it had died,"
said Barbara Weinburger, who
represents Dolphin Cove in the
The suggestion was to extend
the road through a large power
line easement that starts between
the Target and World Market
shopping centers and runs south
to Ponte Vedra Lakes Boulevard.
When the county investigated
the extension years ago,
Weinburger said, it discovered
that more land would be needed
to make the road wide enough to
meet standards.
That would require the taking

of land through eminent domain,
she said.
Tim Franklin of the Ponte
Vedra Lakes Homeowners
Association said the county also
would have to enter into eminent
domain procedures just for the
right to use the land for anything
other than electrical purposes.
Furthermore, Ponte Vedra
Lakes Boulevard is a privately
owned road, which the home-
owners must help maintain.
Many agreed that Ponte Vedra
Lakes Boulevard is already con-
gested with people using it to cut
through from J. Turner Butler to
State Road AlA.


Jakcosnville Beach's once
blighted downtown now brims
with entertainment, dining and
shopping opportunities.
Eager to keep progressing, city
officials will ask the community
to help shape plans for the area.
. The Community
Redevelopment Agency Monday
appropriated $139,018 to fund
the Jacksonville Beach
Downtown Visioning Project.
Engineers with the urban
design firm Glatting Jackson will
facilitate the study to determine
"where we are and where we are
going," Jacksonville Beach
Planning and Development
Director Steve Lindorff said.
A planning and design session
will be held Monday, April 9,
through Wednesday, April 11 to
create a plan, with community

"It's an interactive process
where everyone who has an
interest in what happens in the
central area will have the oppor-
tunity to put in their two cents
worth," Lindorff said.
The study area will be the
Central Business District from
2nd Avenue South to 6th Avenue
"They will be looking at what
different properties. might be best
used for, whether it be for com-
mercial mixed use development
or parking," he. said. "They will
also look at the urban design part
of it with some thoughts on what
buildings ought to look like."
The findings will be presented
to the public at 6 p.m. April 11 at
City Hall.

In a 4-1 decision, the Neptune Beach City
Council voted Monday to accept a settlement
proposal to allow a Wal-Mart Supercenter to
be built in the city contingent on certain
After a year-long process, the majority of
the council voted to accept the settlement
agreement for the proposed development at
630 Atlantic Blvd., citing concerns over what
a lawsuit might cost the city if one were filed.
"I love this city too much to place us in a
position to spend $1 million or $2 million,"

said Vice Mayor Harriet Pruette. "I feel like
my hands are tied."
Councilor Fred Lee questioned both Special
Magistrate Carlos Alvarez, who crafted the set-
tlement proposal, and City Attorney Chris
White about the potential costs to the city if
Wal-Mart filed a lawsuit.
"The exposure can be significant if they pre-
vail," said White, regarding the possibility of
a lawsuit and its costs, although he did not
give a specific number.
Councilor John Weldon voted against the
settlement, saying that "the citizens of
Neptune Beach and other small communities

all over the United States deserve better."
It is still unknown when construction will
take place, according to- City Manager Jim
Jarboe, who said that Wal-Mart still has to,
submit the final plans to the city, which then
have to be reviewed and approved. Final
approval of a development order will be coni-

The U.S. Hot Rod
Association Monster
[am drew a sellout
crowd of more than e
69.000 Saturday at
Jacksonville N iuhicipal
Stadium, home of the
NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars.
Monster trucks with names
such as Grave Digger, M aximum
Destruction, Superman and Batman roared
around a dirt-filled track, jumping stacks of
junk cars, vans and even a school bus.
In between qualifying rounds, the crowd was treated to a demolition
derby, a freestyle motocross exhibition, an ATV race and a mullet hairstyle contest. You
can't make this stuff up..
A local 9-year-old with locks reaching the middle of his back won the best mullet event
and a garish trophy that is taller than the Winner.
In the fan-favorite freestyle event, monster truck Air Force Afterburner capped its "sic
air" run by blowing its transmission in fiery fashion. Driver Damon Bradshaw kicked out
a side door and jumped from the flaming, 1,500 horse-power vehicle with 66-inch tires
to a huge ovation.
Maybe the Jaguars can sign Bradshaw as a halftime act. The guy sure knows how to
make an exit.

The Leader's Opinion

Open access aid

plus for citizens

Fans of open government got some good news this week
when the governor announced two new Web sites are available
to help citizens learn about what their government is doing.
Lauded by the governor as tools to help citizens become
"true participants in the democratic process," the sites explain
the state's public records laws and offer a way for citizens to get
bureaucratese translated into plain language.
Both are certainly worthwhile projects.
The Open Government Web site (www.flgov.com/og_home)
provides links to other organizations that provide public
record resources. Visitors to the site can also access the
Attorney General's Open Government Mediation Program and
the First Amendment Foundation. The plain language initia-
tive is available at www.flgov.com/plhome.
These are valuable tools and to be encouraged.

After the Board had heard
all the presentations, had
heard how important the
decision was to the affected
communities and to the
SMCC, not one of the Board
members had anything to say
during the Board's discussion
period. In ruling on the
application, the Chair of the
Board compared Selva
Linkside I & II's loss of priva-
cy and the degradation of
their lifestyle to his loss of a
magnolia tree when land near
his home was developed
many years ago. His advice to
the attendees was to accept
that changes like this are
inevitable and unhappy
homeowners need to simply

Given the numerous and
legitimate concerns expressed
at the meeting along with. the
irreversible nature of the
removal from AB of a chunk
of our dwindling open space,
a more reasonable and sound
conclusion by the develop-
ment board would have been
to request SMCC to resubmit
alternative development pro-
posals in a timely manner to
address the concerns of the
community. One noteworthy
presenter suggested preserv-

The extra hour to play hide

important to a teenager. There

that I start calling girls at
night, and they were easier to

I found that to be true.

teenagers must see even less
value in moving the clocks up

Settlement disappointing to NB residents

To the editor:
After reviewing the
Settlement Agreement between
Neptune Beach and Wal-Mart,
I'm disappointed. While the
City's efforts in all this were in
the best interest of Neptune
Beach, the conclusion of their
valiant attempt to protect us did
not succeed in doing so. Our
character, life style and property
values may now suffer as a
result, even though there are a
few nice concessions in the
The City will be getting
$300,000.00 from Wal-Mart,
and since it spent $100,000.00
in legal expense fighting the
new development; the City will
now make a profit. On the sur-
face that appears to be a posi-
tive. Albeit possibly at the
expense of creating an appear-
ance that a payoff from a devel-
oper will get them whatever
they want. Let's hope that's not
the case!
The requirement to have an
off duty police officer, at Wal-

Mart's expense, roam the prop-
erty also seems like great conces-
sion. But, having that done for
just the first of three months of
operation and then for only for
eight hours a day, while the
store will operate on a 24 hour
basis, is ludicrous.
'During what portion of the
day will the security take place?
Does Wal-Mart think crime only
takes place eight hours out of
every twenty four? If so during
which eight hour period do cus-
tomers deserve protection? A
more logical plan would be rov-
ing security during all hours of

ment is the one that allows Wal-

Lemon Street deserves big
kudos, especially with the
requirement that the road be
built at Wal-Mart's expense.
Also, an entrance into the shop-
ping center to the east of the
new Super Center seems like a
good traffic easing idea. Some
thought however needs to be
given to the Third Street
entrance into that easterly prop-

however may not be as com-
mendable. Doing so would put
two signals in close proximity
which could contribute to bottle
necks and backed up traffic if
they are not carefully controlled
and synchronized.
My greatest disappointment is
with the architectural building
elevations and site plan. Based

on a review of the plans on the
City's web site, they do not
appear to be anything but the
standard strip shopping center
fare with a few dull elements
added onto the roof line.
The latest proposed building
design lacks a real "Beach Like
look" to me. It is certainly not
on a par with the Stein Mart
architecture across the ditch
which has many more eye
appealing features.
Perhaps in Wal-Mart's "Low
Price Mentality" they feel citi-
zens in the beaches communi-
ties wouldn't appreciate or don't
deserve such niceties. Whatever
their reason, it seems there is
more Oink in the latest design
than lipstick.
Thanks to City Council for
their efforts in trying to protect
us! Its' now time to see how the
majority of citizens against this
project from day one will show
their appreciation to Wal-Mart
for its efforts after it is built!

Don't give green space over to development

In the 2/23/07 issue of The

Atlantic Beach Development
Board reviewed the application
by Selva Marina "Country Club

course. Your reports states: "The

This development autonomy
comes as a complete surprise to
me! I thought the purpose of a
development board was to
guide the land use of the com-
munity. This philosophy would
allow any private land owner to
do anything they want in the
city of Atlantic Beach. Hmmm,
I thought we had something
going here in AB to "protect the
canopy," to respect the

"ambiance" of "old Atlantic
Beach," to prevent McMansions
from crowding out the 40, 50,
60 year old cottages, cutting off
light, air, and disrupting privacy.
Is it just that Selva Linkside I
and II are relatively new com-
munities that disqualify us from
the protection of our local gov-
Homeowners in Selva
Linkside I and II are evidently
not supposed to protest the
development of a PUD (Planned
Urban Development) that
places 90-100 homes in our
faces, substituting town homes
for golf course and putting PUD
access roads next to our homes.
How about sprinkling some of
that housing around the golf
course instead of cramming it
all into a comer of the golf
course that we have to look at?
Most of the golf course is prop-
erty that is within the city of
Jacksonville, weird as that

seems. It is a little Jacksonville
enclave surrounded by Atlantic
Beach. Perhaps SMCC figure it
is simpler to only have to deal
with one municipality to devel-
op residential property, or,
maybe land in Atlantic Beach
comes at a higher premium
than land in Jacksonville so
SMCC can make more money.
Allowing residential develop-
ment of this piece of property
seems to me to be a violation of
all that Atlantic Beach seeming-
ly wants to retain about our
town. I think it is great that a
compromise was reached to pre-
serve "old Atlantic Beach" by
limiting the footprint of
McMansions but those of us
who do not live in "old Atlantic
Beach" are also not eager to
have a planned urban develop-
ment steal a hunk of the last
large open space in Atlantic
Beach. The original intent of
the builders of our neighbor-

hood, Selva Linkside, was to
provide a quiet cul-de-sac golf
side community.
I know that most of life is
"buyer beware," but it seems to
me that SMCC residential devel-
opment in a concentrated seg-
ment of the golf course is one of
the very worst scenarios. The
disruption of this historically
quiet, open area of Atlantic
Beach has an impact far beyond
the aesthetic and financial loss
to Selva Linkside homeowners.
And, why the big rush to sell to
developers? This area could be a
candidate for government pur-
chase or offered to the Nature
Conservancy if it must be sold.
With open spaces so rare at the
Beaches it seems a shame to lose
yet more green space to devel-

Stabbing victim urges state to stand tough

Hicks and I am a victim of a bru-
tal attempt on my life inrr
Jacksonville Beach.
On Jan. 21, 2007, at approxi-
mately midnight I was on the
boardwalk at the SeaWalk
Pavilion talking with other indi-
viduals, when a man
approached me about a can of
beer in my hand. He told me to
get rid of the can and put the
contents into some other cup
because the Jacksonville Beach
police have cameras everywhere
and people like him who are
homeless could be arrested for
drinking in public. I told him to
get away from me and he
became angry. I'll admit I proba-
bly called him some names he
did not appreciate. At some
point I gave in to his demands
and told him, "Just take the
damn thing," and handed him
the partially empty can. He
walked away and finished the
Soon after this encounter, I
began playing a game of paddle-
ball with others who were on
the boardwalk. Once again the
same man approached me and
began speaking; although
annoying, he did not seem
threatening. I told him to get
away from me and, at this time,
I probably used some profanity.
He left my sight. Approximately
10 minutes later he returned,
was facing me and put his right
hand out for a handshake. I

returned the gesture by putting
my right hand into his out-.
stretched hand. At that moment
he-reached his left hand across
my body, pulling across my
chest. I felt a painful tugging
across my chest, released his
right hand and stepped back. I
looked down and saw blood
pouring from my chest, took a
breath and a gurgling release of
air came from the wound on my
At that point I was convinced
that my lung had been punc-
tured by something sharp, and
knew the only way I was going
to survive this attack was to
immediately call 911 on my cell
phone and find somewhere to
sit down. As I did this and began
speaking with the 911 dispatch-
er, I saw the same man standing
approximately 15 to 20 feet
away holding a knife. I was
bleeding horribly and began to
fall in and out of consciousness.
Thankfully, the rescue team
arrived within minutes.
I have small periods of con-
scious recollection following
their arrival. For example, I
remember being able to tell res-
cue paramedics my home
phone number and my girl-
friend's name, whom I live with
in Jacksonville Beach.
Approximately 36 hours later
I awoke in the Surgical Intensive
Care Unit at Shands Hospital. I
had been in surgery to repair an

ered, as well as a collapsed lung,

To the editor:
I spent 21 years in code enforcement and
the last 15 were in Jacksonville Beach.
During my career, I participated in well over
two hundred hearings and I am certified in
three levels of code enforcement.
Because of that experience, participation
in the process, and knowledge of the proce-
dures, I support the appointment of a special
magistrate. Rather than having a board of
appointed residents who may not have any
experience to make these important deci-
sions, an impartial magistrate will have the
legal training required to make a decision
and protect the rights of people appearing
before him.

idents will be better for it.

Library ushers in Chinese New Year

The Year of the Golden
Pig, the Chinese New
Year, was celebrated
Friday at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library in
two sessions one for
toddlers and the other
for teens.
The events, organized
by the library's
Children's Department,
gave toddlers activities in
the morning, teenagers
in the afternoon. Chinese
New Year began Feb. 18.
Children's librarian

Amanda Le created
games for the celebration
that ranged from pin the
tail on the dragon to
dragon bowling and feed
the dragon. There was a
wishing well, as well as
Chinese hats to be col-
ored and refreshments to
be eaten.
"I started the Chinese
New Year party here last
year," said Le. "I invent-
ed the games. One or two
of them were carryovers
from a Halloween party. I
just introduced a Chinese
New Year theme to them.

"I did the Ticky, Ticky
Tumbo, based on the
story. It's a wishing well,.
where they throw a gold
coin into the wishing
well," she said, adding
they weren't all authen-
tic Chinese games.
"It's a little combina-
tion," said Le. "The kids
that come here in the
morning are a little bit
too young to do a lot of
the stuff."
All children who
played the games
received prizes for their

It was the job of
Mildred Kelly, volunteer
coordinator for Friends of
the Library, to put a
corps of volunteers
together to run the
games. She turned out 10
for the morning session.
"They're very enthusi-
astic," said Kelly. "We
asked them to be festive
and wear some red and
gold. We came yesterday
and did some decorating.
There's little crafty things
to do. We'll make some
hats and play some

St. Augustine museum retains old-

world cooking flavor in its kitchen

people have traveled to
Florida for centuries in
search of wealth, reli-
gious freedom, the fabled
Fountain of Youth, and to
study the natural environ-
In the early 19th Century,
"strangers," as they were
called by St. Augustine resi-
dents, also traveled to
Florida in search of relief
from illnesses such as tuber-
St. Augustine was a popu-
lar destination for those
seeking better health. Since
there were not enough
hotels to accommodate the
visitors, many homeowners
converted their property in
to boarding houses.
For weeks at a time, guests
from the north stayed at
these boarding houses to
rest in the warmer Florida
Nutritious food was also
an important part of the

treatment recommended by
physicians for tuberculosis
and other illnesses. The
quality of the food served at
a boarding house often con-
tributed greatly to the estab-
lishment's reputation.
Visitors to St. Augustine
today can visit the Ximenez-
Fatio House, a National
Historic Landmark which
has been restored to reflect
its use as a 19th century
boarding house.
The house is the State
Historic Museum of the
National Society of the
Colonial Dames of America
in Florida.
The kitchen and dining
room in the museum give
an idea of what cooking and
dining in a 19th century St.

Augustine boarding house
would have been like.
The Ximenez-Fatio is at 20
Aviles St. and is named for
two of its owners. Spaniard
Andres Ximenez purchased
the property in 1797 and
lived there with his family
in a two-story house built of
coquina block in 1798.
Louisa Fatio purchased the
house in 1855 and ran it as
a so-called "fashionable"
boarding house until her
death in 1875.
Exhibits at the Ximenez-
Fatio House, archaeological
studies, and research by the
staff and members of the
Colonial Dames provide
information about the histo-
ry of the house.
In their mission state-
ment, the Colonial Dames
state that their goal is to
have the house represent the
period between 1821 and
1861, said Edna Dickinson,
chairperson of the Colonial
Dames Ximenez-Fatio
Fatio was one of three

women who owned the
house in the 19th century.
She was a member of a fami-
ly who had settled on a
plantation on the St. Johns
River in Switzerland. By the
late 1830s, her family's plan-
tation had been burned
down during the Indian
Wars. ,
Fatio moved to St.
Augustine and operated a
boarding house on another
property there, according to
"The Ximenez-Fatio House:
Long Neglected, Now
Restored," by Jean Parker
Before Fatio purchased the
Ximenez-Fatio House,
Margaret Cook from
Charleston, S.C., bought the
house and established it as a
boarding house in 1830.
She employed Eliza
Whitehurst to run it as
"Mrs. Whitehurst's Boarding

USS Kennedy could serve

years in mothball fleet

T three things can happen
to a retired aircraft carrier
after it has been struck
from the Navy's active duty
list: It can be sold for scrap,
placed in donor status or sunk.
Such is the eventual fate of
the Mayport-based USS John F.
Kennedy, scheduled to be
decommissioned on Friday,
March 23.
Once the USS JFK is moth-
balled, or placed in safe stor-
age, it will be stricken from the
Navy's ship roster. Years could
pass before the Kennedy's ulti-
mate fate is determined, during
which time the ship will be
stripped for available parts like
a junked vehicle.
The decommissioning of
warships has been going on for
decades, but mothballing a car-
rier is special because so few are
in existence.

Sold for scrap
The last aircraft carrier to be
decommissioned by the Navy
was the USS Constellation in
August 2003. The
Constellation now resides in
an inactive ship facility in
Bremerton, Wash., docked
alongside two other decommis-
sioned carriers, the USS
Independence and the USS
The USS Independence,
decommissioned in 1998,
spent more than five years in
mothballs before being struck
from the active duty list in
March 2004.
One of the ship's anchors
and both its anchor chains
were removed and installed on
the the USS George H. Bush, a
Nimitz-class nuclear carrier
under construction.
The USS Saratoga, formerly
based at Mayport, has been
extensively stripped since it
was decommissioned in August
The once-mighty carrier was
placed in donor status in
January 2000. An effort is
under way to preserve it as a
floating museum in Rhode
Two other former Mayport
carriers, the USS ; Lake
Champlain and the USS
Franklin D. Roosevelt, were
sold for scrap in 1972 and
1978, respectively.
The Navy hasn't sold a carri-
er for scrap since 1980, largely
because of costs and environ-
mental concerns."
When the USS America was
decommissioned in 1996, the
cost to scrap the carrier was
estimated at more than $65
The Navy found a more cost-


effective way of disposing of
the ship: Sinking it as a test
target for $22 million.

Test target or reef
According to Navy.mil, the
USS America was stored at the
Naval Inactive Ship
Maintenance Facility in
Philadelphia and set to be
scrapped when it was towed
out to sea in April 2005 and
scuttled 25 days later after serv-
ing as a live-fire test target.
The 84,000-ton warship was
used for target practice to test
the "survivability" of next-geri-
eration carriers such as the
Bush, now in development
The America was the largest
ship ever to be intentionally
sunk by the Navy. Last year
the retired carrier USS Oriskany
became the largest ship ever
sunk for use as an artificial reef.
The Oriskany was scuttled
May 17, 2006, off the coast of
Pensacola. The Vietnam-era
warship had been sold for scrap
in 1995, but the contracted
defaulted and the Navy wM
forced to .repossess the ship in
1997, according to Navy.mil.
Before the Navy can dispose
of a carrier at sea, it must first
"rid the ship of contaminants,"
according to the USS Ranger
Museum Foundation.
"That includes cleaning
tanks, getting rid of floating
parts and removing contami-
nants like.toxic polychlorinat-
ed biphenyls, or PCBs."
The Navy had to consult the
National Marine Fisheries
Service before it could scuttle
the America off the coast of
North Carolina.
The 32-year-old America
now rests in more than 6,000
feet of water, according to the
Naval Sea Systems Command.
The Oriskany was sunk in
much shallower waters so
recreational divers could scuba
to the ship's conning tower
and flight deck.


The crew of the aircraft carrier USS America marches down
the gangway for the last time in 1996 as their ship is decom-
missioned at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth,Va.
The America was sunk as a test target in 2005.

A guest at the boarding
,house, Charles Lanman,
reported ot tie "home-like
Uand comfortable lodgings
:with Miss Fatio" and a 19th
.Century guide book listed it
:"among the houses where
the tables are better kept

,of seafood.
In a typical meal, no food
':would have been duplicated
-in both courses. In addition,
vegetables and tropical fruit
,which were grown locally
:were served along with other
'foods and baked goods.
"We can only imagine
that, to feed a house full of
guests, food preparation
called for considerable skill
!and constant attention," said
Everything was prepared in
Ethe separate kitchen building
;connected to the house by a
.covered walkway. The
:kitchen is believed to be
located on the same founda-
tion as the original Spanish
Prior to the Civil War, ser-
vants including indentured
!servants and slaves would

have been part of the house-
hold staff. The covered walk-
way provided some shelter to
the staff as they carried food
in all kinds of weather from
the kitchen to the house for
At one end of the kitchen,
a large open fireplace and a
beehive oven were used to
cook the food. One of the
first duties of the day was
building the fire in the 4 and
a half foot long dome-
shaped beehive oven.
The fire in the oven was
closely watched until the fire
had burnt off the soot inside
the oven. By looking at the
color of the bricks at the bot-
tom of the oven, the cook
could tell when the heat of
the bricks was hot enough
for baking.
The hot coals and ashes
were raked out and bread,
pies, cakes, and cookies were
placed in the oven to bake.
Baked goods taking longer to
.bake would be placed' in, their -;
back of the oven using,a.
long handled "peel" or flat
bladed shovel. An iron door
snapped into place to close
the opening of the oven.
Other food would be
cooked in the open fireplace.
A swinging iron crane
allowed the cook to check
the pots of cooking food
without leaning into the
fireplace. The speed at which
the food cooked, from boil-
ing to simmering, was con-
trolled by the length of the
hook used to hang the pot
closer or farther from the
Cast iron pans such as a
"spider" with a long handle
and three legs and a three-
legged saucepan called a
"pipkin" were commonly
used for cooking.
The forerunner of a Dutch
oven, a pot with three legs
and iron lid, was used for
baking by placing it in the
fireplace and heaping hot
coals on top of the lid.
A well was located outside
the kitchen. The well water
which had a sulfur taste was
filtered in the kitchen in an
ironstone crock filled with
The kitchen windows were
made to only open 'from the
bottom and gauze curtains
hung on the lower half to
keep out flies. A sugar-water
fly catcher was hung above

the work table to trap flies.
In the kitchen a wooden
counter with a lead-lined
sink which drained to the
outside was used for washing
wash bowls, pots, and uten-
sils used for cooking. Hot
water was brought into the
dining room to wash the
dishes and serving pieces
used at the tables. This was
done in a lead lined sink in a
wooden cabinet placed on
the side of the room.
Guests dined in style in
the dining room which
could accommodate up to 28
people. Children staying at
the boarding house with
their families would have

"Tle bottom line is it's a much quicker 'vay to remove

unwanted hair you have will be gone the day that you leave
the clinic and then you'll come back in for treatments every 6

"For example, I could finish a bikini line in five minutes with
the laser but remove only two inches of hair with more-tradi-
tional electrolysis," she said. [he laser allows me to do much
larger sections, thanks to the patented 18-nmm-gauge

"Most of mv clients comment that laser hair removal is less

from between the eyebiots but not under the eyebrows on the

Female clients often request hair removal treatments for the
chin, upper lip, underarms, legs and bikini line with the legs
and bikini line being tile most popular treatment. "\Ve also
have a lot of men who come to our clinic w\ho want hair
removed from the back, shoulders and chest, Amanda said.
How long does the laser hair removal typically last and what
are the side effects? "Unlike ,waxing. with laser hair removal
treatments we actually ask our clients to shave the area to be
treated right before thev come in because we want to direct all
of the lasei energy to the bottom of the follicle rather than
I waste it on the surface hair," she said.

"As far as side effects go, clients can expect some swelling
around each treated follicle and pinkness that may last for a
couple of hours up to 24 hours but nb bleeding, oozing or
scabbing," she said. "Another difference is that about five days
after the laser treatment the hair seems like it's growing back
in." Amanda said "Some new clients fear that the treatment
didn't work, but that hair growth is normal and then within 10
to 20 days that hair sheds out of body."
An average session for removing hair from an average leg
takes about 45 minutes, according to Amanda. "B\ the fifth or
sixth session, clients are really seeing some good, good, good
results with permanent hair reduction," she said.
After the initial treatment, expect to return to the clinic
every six to eight weeks, Amanda said. "Generally it takes
clients about five to seven sessions to get rid of all the hair,"
she said "After each session you'll have some new hair growth,
but it gets thinner and a little lighter each time."
Even clients who had laser hair removal treatments five or
six years ago come to the Beaches Hair Removal and Skin Care
Clinic for what she calls "maintenance" sessions. "Remember,
legs have thousands and thousands of hairs, each with their
own birthday!" she said. "The best candidates for laser hair
removal can expect to see at least a 90-percent reduction in
hair growth. You can't expect that every single hair will be
taken. There are many factors that contribute to hair growth in
the first place That's why we offer six months of free mainte-
nance after clients have completed their last full session."
Amanda loves what she does, mainly because her clients are
so pleased with their treatments. "People get %wonderful results.
and its incredible to go from electrolysis to laser, especially for.
our many clients whose medical issues caused them to grow'a
lot of facial hair," she said. "Some of them have had electroly-
sis for \ears with only so-so results, and after only one or two
laser treatments they come in here almost crying because it's
changed their lives and they just can't believe it."
For more information and to schedule an appointment, call
Amanda at 249-8980. Mention this article to qualify for a spe-
cial promotional laser package. "We're happy to answer ques-
tions on the phone, and encourage potential clients to come in
for a free consultation and a 'test spot,' if they'd like," she said.

The lacrosse program at
Nease High School continues
to grow and prosper, with the
girls off to an undefeated
start and the boys team pick-
ing up a key win against
Oviedo last Saturday.
The girls' latest win was a
16-6 shellacking of University
on Saturday. Nicole White led
the way for the Panthers with
four goals while teammate
Allie Lancashire netted three
goals and had two assists.
Nicole Nadeau, Katelyn
Racz, Bailee Hedstrom and
Kate O'Linn each had two
goals in the lopsided victory.
On i d.i,. night, Nease
topped Apopka, 12-2.
With the weekend wins,
the girls team is now 5-0 with
the next scheduled contest
Friday as West Orange visits
Panther Stadium in a 7 p.m.
It will be Friday night-
Saturday morning action
again for the Panthers as the
team travels to Sebastian
River for the Sebastian Classic
on March 3.
Next Tuesday, Nease will
add another chapter to the
storied Beaches Rivalry when
the Panthers play Fletcher in
the first-ever girls lacrosse
contest between the schools.
It's the inaugural year for girls
lacrosse at Fletcher, while
Nease had fielded a competi-
tive team for several seasons.
In 2003, the Florida High
School Athletic Association
voted to recognize boys and
girls lacrosse beginning with
the 2004-5 season. The sport
remains unsanctioned by the
FHSAA, however, meaning
there is no official state
championship tournament.
Under the direction of sec-
ond-year head coach Mindy
McCord, the Lady Panthers
program has continued to
blossom and the varsity
squad now includes 24 play-
The jayvee squad is also
formidable and is slated to
participate in the second
annual Ojibwe Lacrosse
Festival at Bartram Trail on
Saturday, March 9.

Price takes first in El Cheapo tournament

Tim Price won the very
popular and very com-
petitive El Cheapo
Sheepshead Tournament last
Saturday with a huge 11.9-
pound fish. Chris Beasley was
a close second with a fat 11.7-
pound sheepshead.
This year's tournament
included 291 boats with 134
anglers weighing in. As this
year's winner, Tim Price
received a 16-foot Jon boat
with a 25 Mercury four-stroke
and a Loadmaster trailer.
Beasley, with his second-
place finish, won two kayaks.
Third place through tenth

No surprise, Leftwich is

still the Jaguars' starter

It's finally official from
Jaguars headquarters: Byron
Leftwich will be the starting
quarterback for the coming sea-
son. There hasn't been such
surprising news since we were
told there were terrorists in
Now seriously folks, as the
politicians used to say, how
could anyone but the most
incredibly naive think other-
wise? Lord Byron Leftwich is
No. 1. He has been all along,
even if coach Jack Del Rio has
never said as much.
And why has it taken so long
for Jack to let the cat out of the
bag, so to speak? First of all, he
finally came to realize you can't
fight city hall. In this case, you
can fight the Jaguars' higher-
ups, but you cannot win. Oh,
you might win a point here or
there, but is it worth it? You
can win the argument or save
your job, but usually not both.
Del Rio has a ton of fans and
some media on his side.
Leftwich has team owner
Wayne Weaver and chief of
staff James Harris, who is vice
president of personnel and all
he surveys, on his side. Was it
really ever a question which
side would prevail in this quar-
terback "con-
troversy"? Del Rio hN
Jack has a
year left on of fans ar

If Mr. Weaver and Shack
Harris say that their draft dar-
ling of 2003 is still the team's
starting passer no matter how
many ankles he's sprained, bro-
ken or twisted and no matter
what the media says and no
matter how many in the
bleachers think David Garrard
or Quinn Gray can do a better
job, then the case is closed.
It's said that Gray, who came
out of hibernation after four






seasons of being the second
stooge and showed well in the
final game of the 2006 cam-
paign after Garrard struck out,
had his pride wounded that
he's out. All the third-stringer
did was pass for a career-high
166 yards, rushed twice for 26
yards and found the elusive
end zone twice.
It was a fine showing and
reports indicate Gray is disap-
pointed to learn he's not going
to get a shot at the starting job
now. Cheer up, Quinn, you still
have a chance at being an NFL
starting quarterback some-
where. It just won't be at

who think he

at being the
ris on starting QB.
ever a Yet one game
is not enough
Ahich to bank all the
chips on him,
I prevail? no matter
how long he's
been caddying
for Leftwich and even Garrard.
Out at the NFL Combine in
Indianapolis, the annual meat
market where college players
are poked and prodded like
prized steers, Jacksonville's
quarterback situation was not
the only story. The Del Rio
boys want .to do something
about improving the Jaguars
receiving corps,. but not enough
to break the bank for a bog-
name pass catcher. They still
think Reggie Williams and Matt

Jones are going to develop and
justify their first-round selec-
tions in past drafts.
Fine. Let's hope it's finally
this year. First we catch the
ball, fellows, then we hold onto
it while running, okay?
The official statistics for the
2006 season indicate Jones and
Williams caught caught a com-
bined 93 passes for 1,259 yards
and eight touchdowns. Those
numbers, together, scarcely put
them in the class with the top
individual pass catchers in the
NFL. But they've been hurt, it's
pointed out by coaches.
Again, fine. Let's just hope
they don't sustain so many
injuries and stay as healthy as
say, Houston's Andre Johnson
or Indy's Marvin Harrison and
Reggie Wayne.
Harris and others say they are
looking for a player who is the
right fit, not one who pitches a
fit. We have one in mind, but
Jimmy Smith is still retired.
No matter what the top brass
says, though, there will be
changes amongst the troops.
The old locker room is going to
see some new faces and miss
some who've looked comfort-
able in Teal and Black. The nod
has already been toward such
free agents as Kyle Brady, Deon
Grant and Cortez Hankton,
who has scarcely played
enough to get his fancy Jaguars
duds grimy with grass stains
and sweat.
Brady has been on the bub-
ble so long he should be sea-
sick. A great competitor as a
blocker and a high-character
guy on the team, Brady seldom
gets enough passes thrown his
way to prove he's worth the
price. And that's the rub -
paying him big money. At least
that's what management
Shifting gears to the cage
scene, whatFlorida's Billy
Donovan feared might happen
seems to be happening. When
the Gators were beaten by
Vanderbilt, snapping a 17-game
winning streak, Donovan
warned his charges not to let
one loss turn into two. LSU
made it two on Saturday with a
10-point victory in Bayou
Country. It happens but now is
not the time to hit the panic
button Gators fans. Remember,.
the Orange and Blue lost a few
down the stretch last season
and things turned out okay.

Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich looks for running back Fred Taylor (28) out of the backfield -
during last season's home opener against the Dallas Cowboys. Despite injury and inconsistency
last year, Leftwich will remain Jacksonville's starter for the 2007 season.
