: Convict held in rape, beating

A 35-year-old convicted felon
from New York state remained in
jail without bond Tuesday while
St. Johns County deputies contin-
ued investigating the weekend
rape and beating of a 75-year-old
woman at her home south of
Ponte Vedra Beach.
Mastho Lebai Davis, who once
confessed to an attempted mur-
der in Syracuse, N,Y., according to
a New York prosecutor, is identi-
fied by deputies as a "person of

interest" in the attack late
Saturday at the home in the 2000
block of South Ponte Vedra
Davis had been questioned and
released by St. Johns County
deputies hours after the sexual
assault took place but before it
was reported, according to the
Sheriff's Office.
According to a report by
Deputy Nickolas Swan, the
woman was getting into bed
between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Saturday when she was attacked
from behind by a man who told
her not to scream then began rap-
ing her.
The woman said she looked
back once at the man, who was
speaking in a foreign language
she didn't recognize during most
of the attack.
After the attack, the woman
"stayed on the floor for roughly
40 minutes then slowly made her
way to the bed,", according to the

Her 48-year-old son became
concerned Sunday when she did-
n't make her daily call to him,
and he and his 80-year-old father
drove to her home and found her
on the bed, the report said.
She was taken to Baptist
Medical Center Beaches, where
she was treated for minor
injuries, according to Swan's

County eyes


spiffing up

A proposal that would help
beautify some median strips
and roundabouts in St. Johns
County including the
roundabout at Palm Valley
and Mickler roads was sent
back to county staff Tuesday
by county commissioners.
Commissioners had "no
problem with the format" of
planting Florida-friendly veg-
etation to improve aesthetics,
Commissioner Ron Sanchez
said Tuesday.
"We just had a problem
with the budget and the
money," he said. "So we ..
asked staff to come back with
alternative ways" of funding,
Sanchez said in a telephone
The proposal, which coun-
ty landscape and nursery
manager Chuck Moore has
been working on for about
two months, would provide a
policy for improvements.
"Moore said.
Although median and
roundabout landscaping is
not typically a concern of
county government, he said,

requests for landscaping at
county rights-of-way have
been increasing.
"There have been a lot of
requests for the roundabout
[in Ponte Vedra Beach] . .
and for County Road 210
[West]," said Moore, who for-
merly ran the parks division
of the city of St. Augustine.
He proposes that the coun-
ty adopt two standard designs
for medians one with palm
trees and the other with hard-
Crape myrtles, which are
droughtresistant, and orna-
mental plantings could be
used with either design, and
the two designs would be
alternated on long stretches
of road "to avoid a monoto-
nous appearance," says the
Roundabouts would have
to be treated individually
because "we have to be care-
ful about what we put there .
. [so as] not to block visibili-
ty," Moore said.

A Beaches business that operates on a
membership basis allows some people to
live in mansions for considerably
reduced rates. N
Showcase Homes of Florida, which has
several offices, including one in Ponte
Vedra, operates a home management
program where homeowners and
Realtors can enlist a "home manager" to
occupy a house or condominium that
would otherwise be vacant in order to
increase its chances of being sold, accord-
ing to owner Dennis Rust.
The program is based on membership
and a "tenant" can live in a home in the
Beaches or greater Jacksonville area for
approximately $800 to $1,000 per
month, although prices can vary depend-
ing on the house, according to Rust.
The home manager is responsible for
providing furniture for the house, which
has to be approved, and the manager is
also responsible for utilities, lawn, pool
and regular home maintenance, accord-

ing to Robert
who is responsi-
ble for new busi-

"Most of our people are in transition,"
said. Rust, who explained that many of
the people who utilize the program are
in the process of moving for business rea-
sons or renovating a current home.
For example, Gary Delaney, who is
relocating from Ohio and will likely
make a permanent move to the area, has
been in the program' for a more than a
year and has lived in several high-end

Work begins on site

for PV high school

Work has begun to ready a
76-acre site near Davis Park
for a high school scheduled to
open in August 2008.
The high school is being
built on a site donated by the
developer of Nocatee, a
mixed-use development
along both sides of County
Road 210 between the Palm
Valley bridge and U.S. 1.

The donated site is near
Davis Park and the Nocatee
preserve, which runs near the
Intracoastal Waterway. There
are two significant wetlands
on the property, but about 60

Mix sweatband with

Internet and a star

is born on boardwalk

An Atlantic Beach talent agency is helping struggling artists gain
celebrity without following the stereotypical bus ride to Hollywood
to score an agent route.
Jalali Hartman, founder of www.HollywoodSquared.com, said the
goal is to promote unsigned artists using the popular online format
that is helping to launch a new generation of comedians, actors and
Designed to be a mix between American Idol and Youtube, view-
ers can log on to the site, watch the clips and vote for their favorite
rising star.
"There are a lot of artists out there," Hartman said. "You don't need
a real record label to build up popularity online."
The global talent search is following Jacksonville Beach comedian
and struggling musician Israel Swanson, professionally known as
"Sweatband Man," on his quest to become famous.
As part of his pursuit, Swanson interviews people on the street to
gain insight and solicit advice on becoming famous. He uses "the
vibe" an oddly seductive stance that is his signature move- to
make sure people are paying attention.
Once the conversation progresses, people are often encouraged to
display their own hidden talents on camera.
"Typically we go out and get a lot of footage," Hartman said. "He
is becoming famous in the process. It is growing pretty quickly."
With Hartman behind the camera, Sweatband Man demonstrated
his people skills on.several unsuspecting passersby Monday afternoon
near the Jacksonville Beach pier.
"Most people avoid us when they see the camera," Swanson said.
"Especially the girls on Spring Break. They think we are being per-

Ofalt, who was in town on Spring Break, advised Sweatband Man to
"never give up" his dreams of fame and fortune before launching into
a impromptu rendition of the "Cheers" theme song while Sweatband
Man displayed his mad dance skills much to the delight of those for-
tunate enough to view the boardwalk performance.
"I wanted to be famous and now I am and it didn't cost me a dime,"
Swanson said. "I get recognized everywhere I go.

HollywoodSquared.com has jumpstarted my career simply using the
power of the Internet. It is amazing."
So far, Sweatband Man has over 1.4 million views on Youtube and
Google Video in only five months. While filming recently in New
York, Hartman said the group was approached on the street by a col-
lege student who had viewed his footage from the dorm.
Singer Ben Harper also waxed poetic on the power of the sweatband
which he happened to be wearing when he encountered the duo film-
ing in the Big Apple.
"We believe Hollywood is changing. You are changing it. By view-
ing and supporting artists and creativity online, you're helping to
build up artists that otherwise may never "make it,'" according to the
mission statement on the Hollywood Squared home page.
"All it takes are fans and the rest takes care of itself."

Peeps are OK, but ducks for Easter are ill-advised gifts, biologists warn

If you plan to buy a duckling as a gift
this Easter, be sure it is one of the marsh-

For generations, "the Easter Bunny"
has delivered mallard ducklings for
Easter. But environmentalists warn that
the consequences have caught up with
'Once domesticated ducks, which live
10 years, become full-grown, people
often decide to tum them loose. And,

Because agriculture and cable

have so much in common

Got a complaint about your cable company? Call the Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
A proposed bill, the Consumer Choice Act of 2007, would restrict local governments from
regulating cable services as well as mandate that customer service issues and complaints go
through the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services naturally, the first state
department that springs to mind when you're having a cable problem.
According to the department's Website www.doacs.state.fl.us, you must download a com-
plaint form, which is evaluated based on three criteria:

1. "If the complaint falls within another agency's jurisdiction, we refer it to that agency;
2. If the complaint false within our jurisdiction, we attempt informal mediation to resolve
the consumer's dispute and evaluate the business for compliance with applicable statutory
provisions; or
3. If a complaint is filed against a business that is not regulated by any federal, state, or
local government entity, we attempt informal mediation to resolve the consumer's dis-
Some of the other categories that fall into the department's complaint jurisdiction
include: dance studios, pawn shops, motor vehicle repair and games/sweepstakes.
Guess agriculture has taken on a new meaning.

Classics in being punked

Another April Fools Day has come and gone.
Maybe you were the prankster or maybe you were the
victim of a prank.
But, there have been some hoaxes throughout his-
tory that have been so good, they are still talked
about today.
According to Wikipedia, these are some of the most
infamous April Fools pranks ever played.

1. Spaghetti trees.
A BBC program, which aired in 1957, once showed
people cultivating spaghetti trees. People called the
station wanting to know how to harvest their own
spaghetti trees.
2. The Taco Liberty Bell.
In 1996, Taco Bell took out a full page ad in the
New York Times announcing that they had bought
the Liberty Bell to reduce the country's debt and were
renaming it the "Taco Liberty Bell."
3. The Tower of Pisa. The Dutch television news
once reported that the Tower of Pisa, also known as
the Leaning Tower of Pisa, had fallen.
4. Left Handed Whoppers. In 1998, Burger King ran
an ad in USA Today claiming that there was a
Whopper for left-handed people where the condi-
ments were designed to drip out of the right side.

"Just kidding. Adequate
schools are somewhere on
the list after 'new stoplight'
and 'repave road,'" the blog-
ger states.

Homeowners benefit because
their insurance premiums are
lower with the house occupied
and the houses are less likely to

Rust. Also, houses are more
likely to sell when it is occupied

The Leader's Opinion

Easement release

warrants release

of detailed plans

Heeding the request of local officials, an area congress-
man is asking the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to slow
up on approving release of an easement at Beach Marine.
The owner of the Jacksonville Beach marina contends
that the issue is minor and said he is merely trying to
clear up a cloud on his property title.
Clearing a title is not time-sensitive, though, unless a
change in ownership is pending. Arid the marina owner
has said there are no plans for the property.
In that case, then, we have to note that there should be
no urgency to releasing what is, according to elected rep-
resentatives, a public easement on the property.
Concerns about the release, and its future impact on
the area, have been raised by county and city officials,
who unsuccessfully sought to have the Florida Inland
Navigation District postpone consideration of the release.
An easement, small as it may be, constitutes a public
asset. Before the public is, divested of an asset, there
should be a thorough review. Citizens and their elected
representatives should have a clear understanding of
what they are giving up and why.
The property appears to be fully functional now, even
with the easement in place.
Giving it away should be considered only when -- and
if detailed plans are provided for the property showing
why the abandonment is in the long-term best interest of
the public.

Many qualified for AB

To the editor:
I have attended all of the public sessions of
the Atlantic Beach District Representation
committee and I have been impressed with the
diligence of the committee members. Two or
three of the members impress me as having
the talent to serve on the Commission in the
near future; committee member Ann Bowers, a
newcomer who lives on the westside of town,
could go on the Commission tomorrow.
I would like to correct one historical error

that arose: The Mayport flyover project was
championed in Atlantic Beach by
Commissioners John Meserve and Mike Borno,
who were joined by Commissioner Rick Beaver
to constitute a Commission majority in favor
of the project. Mayor Suzanne Shaughnessy
,and Commissioner Theo Mitchelson opposed
the project.

Barricade NB council in City Hall

and help protect the community

To the editor:
Neptune Beach residents
soon will be able to rest a lit-
tle easier thanks to Police
Chief David Fife, er,
Sembach's plan to barricade
entrances to public buildings
and place cameras around the
city under the guise of "secu-
rity." :
It's good to see the chief
addressing more serious issues
after wasting thousands of
taxpayer dollars to pimp his
rides because he didn't like
the color.
Now there might be some
cynical folks who see this as
just another fear and intimi-
dation tactic to keep the
"irate" citizenry from address-
ing government wrongdoing.
Block all the entrances but
one, have the people pass
through that door under the
watchful eye of several of
Neptune Beach's finest, place
security cameras everywhere,
do whatever it takes to convey
a message that City Hall is a
hostile place and people
aren't welcome there.
Let me you tell you, chief,
I'm not one of those folks.
After all if I was a City Council
member or the dilettante city
manager or city attorney and I
had disgraced myself and

betrayed the community by
bungling every major issue
the city has addressed in the
last few years, I'd want the
back door, front door, side
door and windows boarded, a
moat around the place, guard
dogs, cameras, whatever it
takes to keep the public away
from me.
But like most ideas in
Neptune Beach, this one does-
n't go quite far enough.
Chief, the residents are ready
to help with your plan and all
you have to do is get your
department, elected officials
and bureaucrats into City
Hall. Just.tell them Wal-Mart
is hosting an appreciation
party complete with gift cards
and Neptune Beach officials
will come running faster than
Jacksonville City Council
member Art Graham runs
away from the serious issues
impacting the Beaches, which
he allegedly represents.
Once everybody is inside,
Neptune Beach residents will
do the rest.
We'll seal every door, win-
dow, crack and crevice so
nobody can get in or out -
of that building.
It shouldn't be too bad for
the people inside because
most folks would say the

Neptune Beach City Council
has been in the dark for years.
And with no lights, nobody
will have to listen to John
"Blackout" Weldon whine
about his latest nonsensical
While the Council won't be
able screw-up any issues,
there will be plenty for them
to do.
I figure Eric Pardee will be
the only Council member
that will be missed. I'm sure
Wal-Mart will be sniffing
around asking questions, but
we'll just tell them that
Pardee is working on a double
secret project to bring a sec-
ond Wal-Mart to the corner of
Penman Road and Atlantic
Boulevard where the old
movie theater is located. That
way when there's traffic grid-
lock from Third Street to
Mayport Road, folks will be
able to easily access at least
one of the stores.
Yes, Chief Fife, you have
come up with a brilliant idea.
Because when City Hall is
sealed, Neptune Beach resi-
dents will indeed sleep a
whole lot sounder.

NB Elementary principal helps many

To the editor:
When Sherron Kenski
became principal at Neptune
Beach Elementary School, she
might not have realized the
impact she would have on so
many children with special
needs in the Beaches area. She
took on the role of principal to
a faculty that had been led by
the same administrator since
the school's opening in 1981.
When Sherron arrived in
1995, she had a large ESE
department serving children
who had been placed in pro-
grams for the learning dis-
abled, emotionally handi-
capped, speech and language
impaired and gifted. In 1999,
children with classified abili-
ties in the profoundly and
trainable mentally challenged
range were newly assigned to
Neptune Beach in classrooms
that had been remodeled and
specially designed to meet stu-
dent needs.
Sherron's indomitable spirit
of optimism, faith and
courage was positively conta-
gious, affecting faculty, par-

ents and students. Her belief
in the unique abilities of each
child and her conviction that
NBE's faculty and staff were
gifted by the opportunity to
serve these children was
impossible to dispute.
Children were thriving in
these newly established pro-
grams that were novel to the
Beaches area schools. In 2005,
Sherron embarrassed the
MOVE curriculum and facili-
tated the process that made
Neptune Beach a model train-
ing site for MOVE
International. Teachers and
parents spread the enthusiasm
that originated with Sherron,
and classrooms devoted to
children with unique needs
increased from four to six in
2005-06 school year.
The success of these class-
rooms is evident and ongoing,
and affects NBE as a whole.,
including the general educa-
tion population and the entire
school staff. Sherron has made.
the inclusion of children with
special needs a part of the
daily routine. Their interac-

tion at Neptune Beach has
come to be expected and con-
sidered the norm. The strug-
gles involved to ensure con-
tinuing positive results are
known to few, but Sherron
encourages her staff to be cre-
ative problem solvers and to
rise to the occasion at every
challenge. While many
remain committed to this
task, Sherron was present at
the inception and has provid-
ed the support and encourage-
ment to help the ESE pro-
grams at Neptune Beach con-
tinue to grow and evolve. Her
leadership resulted in the
acceptance of a vision by the
faculty at large and the com-
munity of NBE, which was no
small challenge.
We thank Sherron Kenski
for believing in the giftedness
of each child! She is an inspi-
ration to all of us committed
to the goal of exceptional stu-
dent education. She will be

Local man arrested

for leaving scene of

crash in Gainesville
An Atlantic Beach man was arrested for leaving the scene of
an accident after a Gainesville police officer was hit and left in
critical condition, authorities said.
Austin John Wright, 21, was arrested Tuesday in Gainesville
for leaving the scene of a crash where there was serious bodily
injury and is also facing DUI charges, according to Florida
Highway Patrol Lt. Mike Burroughs.
The street in front of the University of Florida was blocked off
due to the crowds of people celebrating after Florida won the
National Championship for basketball. According to FHP,
Wright had a blood alcohol level of .214 and .227 three to four
hours after the accident and drove through a barricaded area
and hit Gainesville police officer Lt. Corey Dahlem, 45, who
was crossing the street.
Dahlem flew 20 to 25 feet, landed on the pavement and
rolled under the back of a truck, according to Burroughs.
Wright, a University of North Florida student, left the scene
and continued driving, police said. He was traveling toward
two officers who were on motorcycles and they jumped off in
fear of being hit, Burroughs said.
Officers eventually caught up with Wright who was arrested
and transferred to the Alachua County Jail. He was also
charged with two non-criminal charges for failing to obey a
traffic control device and careless driving, Burroughs said.
Dahlem has been with the Gainesville Police Department for
22 years and is in critical condition at Shands at UF, police said.

Basic boating safety including lifejackets is advised by state

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is urging
boaters to take boating safety seri-
ously and focus on two critical mes-
sages: Pay attention to your sur-
roundings; and wear your life jack-
FWC Capt. Richard Moore said
most boating accidents are preventa-
ble if boaters pay close attention to

their surroundings and stay alert,
and most drowning fatalities are pre-
ventable if people wear their life
"We have to find a way to con-
vince more boaters that basic boat-
ing safety is a critical part of being
on the water," Moore said.
"Eighteen people have died in boat-
ing accidents so far this year, and
that is 18 too many."

Moore said people wear bike hel-
mets, and they wear seat belts. Life
jackets make just as much sense,
because they can make so much dif-
"They should wear their life jack-
ets and practice safe boating," he
"Many lives can be saved simply if
boaters made it a habit always to
wear life jackets, and it's easier than

ever these days since the introduc-
tion of inflatable life jackets."
Accidents occur primarily on small
craft and involve a single vessel. The
primary cause of accidents is driver
inattentiveness, according to FWC
boating accident reports.
Col. Julie Jones, director of the
FWC's Division of Law Enforcement,
said FWC officers will be on the
water throughout Florida during the

boating season.
"FWC officers will be patrolling
and watching for unsafe vessel oper-i
ation, and they will be enforcing;
boating safety laws," she said.
"We'll do our part to reverse this:
accident trend, but the real solution:
lies with boaters."
"Remember," Moore said, "one
bad decision can ruin a great day on
the water."

The Neptune Beach City Council Monday honored Neptune Beach Elementary Principal Sherron
Kenski for the Florida PTA "Principal of the Year" award as well as, her service to the community
for the last 12 years.

Existing home or new construction -

Which makes the most sense?

While existing home sales
nationally were up slightly earli-
er this year, recent news from
the Commerce Department
indicates that sales of newly
constructed U.S. housing
slowed drastically in February
2007, falling 3.9 percent, or to
the lowest level since June 2000.
The figures here in Florida
were similarly sluggish, with
sales of both existing homes
and new homes lagging. This,
along with a dismal outlook for
median home prices, continues
to cast a glare on the state when
it comes to the real estate mar-
But for buyers, a backlog of
unsold new homes in Florida
can mean more bargains avail-
able on new construction.
Because of the increase in
inventory, buyers can be more
discerning and selective about
finishes and features, and can
demand more generous
"builder incentives" from eager
Sounds good, right? It can be,
but the realities of selecting a
site, financing construction and
securing a reputable builder can
be daunting-albeit more cost-
effective than it has been in
If you are thinking about buy-
ing a vacant piece of property
with the intention of building a
custom home, or are currently
working with a developer with a
subdivision under construction,
.consider the following:
, Know the costs involved: In
most cases, building your own
home is more expensive than
"buying one that has already
been built. Construction experts
recommend spending no more
than 35 percent of the complet-
ed home's anticipated market
value for a vacant, finished city
lot (one with utility hookups,
sidewalks and other street
improvements), and no more
.than 25 percent for raw, unfin-
ished land. Contractor fees can
run about 15 percent of build-
ing costs, which average $120 to
$200 per square foot. depending
on the quality of the home.
Teardown or raw land? Raw
land generally makes more eco-
nomic sense, but in many desir-
able areas of Florida, vacant lots
are simply not available.
If you find a must-have

down on it, be sure to factor in
the costs of demolishing it.

The council decided that
the proposed Iordinance,
which would place restric-
tions on dock sizes in order to

sitive lands, is too technical
and needs to be fine-tuned.

and Rachel Cruzan,
S both award-winning
artists who have prac-
ticed their painting skills for
many years, have more in
common than their talent.
;The two are sisters who are
10 years apart in age and
about three miles apart in dis-
tance. Their life journeys took
them in separate directions
until four years ago, when
they became near-neighbors
in Ponte Vedra Beach.
S Mary Holmes Schafer, who
is in her 80s, moved to Ponte
Vedra 27 years ago when her
husband, Paul, retired from
American Cyanamid in New
Jersey where they had been

A former real estate agent,

until November 2005 when
she, who had been widowed,

Rachel Holmes Cruzan, who
is in her 70s, moved to Ponte
Vedra in 2003 after her hus-
band passed away. She had
previously lived in the

always loved art. Each said she
has been painting for as long
as she can remember.
Schafer specializes in the
Sumi-e' style of oriental brush
painting. This classic ink
painting technique dates from
the 11th century when
Chinese monks introduced ,
Buddhism to Japan.
The precision involved in
this particular style of art
appeals to Schafer's practical
and analytical nature.
Cruzan favors traditional
watercolor work, and express-
es a whimsical illustrative
style in her work. She is pas-
sionate about being exact in '
bringing the details of realism
into her paintings. Her por-
traits of people, pets and
places have been well

said Schafer, "so it's fortunate
we paint in very different

"But," she added, "we do
enjoy seeing each other suc-
ceed when we sell a painting
or our work is appreciated. We
are very proud of each other."
While the sisters lived far
from each other for many
years, each achieved recogni-
tion in her own art style.
Schafer has been awarded a
number of prizes in national,
juried Sumi-e' competitions
and has sold many of her
Cruzan has been successful
at selling much of her work in
Maryland and Alabama and
has won a several awards. She
worked for several years as a
commercial artist in both
Oregon and Alabama.
Over the years the times
were few ard far between that
they were able to get together
to paint, but Schafer recalled,
fondly "sitting on the balcony

of a hotel room in the Florida
Panhandle a few years ago
and painting the same thing,
but with two very different
outcomes." ... ~'a :.'a,;,
They gleaned some comfort
from the peacefulness of
painting together during this
visit, which turned out to be
the last meeting for the sisters
and their husbands prior to
the deaths of the husbands,
who were both ill at the time.
These days; Schafer is a vol-
unteer teacher, conducting a
class in Sumi-e' painting on
Monday mornings at Christ
Episcopal Church in. Ponte
Vedra Beach. She is a found-
ing member of the Hisshin
Sumi-e' Society of Northeast

teaching a class in watercolor
painting on Friday afternoons

skills and techniques to her
students as well as the
progress that is made during
"We really do see talent
develop, which is our reward,"
said Cruzan.
Schafer and Cruzan agree
that they are blessed to be liv-

such a beautiful area, and at
this stage of their lives to be
able to share the passion that
they both have for painting in
particular and art in general.

Fine desserts never

lose their interest

In addition to the deli-
cious dishes highlighted
in last week's column,
several members of the
Women of the World pre-
pared desserts for their most
recent meeting.
Hostess Christine Mack
from Austria made an ele-
gant Sacher Torte.
Mack glazes the chocolate
cake with melted apricot pre-
serves and then with a rich
chocolate glaze.
The texture of the cake,
unlike fluffier American layer
cakes, holds up to the warm
glaze, she said. The result is
a beautiful, rich dessert best
served with homemade
whipped cream.
Maria Noddle from
Argentina brought an
Orange Flan. Noddle pre-
pares the flan's custard mix-
ture with a hint of orange.
SAfter baking in a water
bath, the flan is unmolded
with a coating of a luscious
caramel glaze. Noddle recom-
mends chilling the flan in

famous Canadian treat,

Canada for decades and orig-

Nanaimo in British
Colombia, according to the
town's website.
The bars are so famous
that a search on Google for

thousands of results.

Kids find adventure at YMCA spring break camp

With St. Johns County public schools on spring break this week, some
children are enjoying activities in the Kids Adventure Room at the Winston
Family YMCA on Landrum Lane. Below, Gabriel Sabangan (left) and Aden ;

A surprise retirement party for Chuck Scott hosted by David Keasler of Ponte
Vedra Beach, along with Scott's family, friends and coworkers, was held Friday at
Beaches Diner in Atlantic Beach. Scott is retiring April 20 from Fletcher High
School. He has two grandchildren on the way and is moving to North Georgia.
He has worked at Fletcher High School in several posts since 1988: as assistant
principal of community education, dean of boys and, currently, assistant principal
of student services. His work at the Beaches began in 1970 at what was then
Fletcher Junior High, where he was a teacher and a coach.

All Lancashire and Amanda

STinmmons pursuing MLB dream

Wes Timmons dropped off
his 11-month-old daughter at
the sitter Monday morning
and headed for work, just like
any other young father.
But,what separates Timmons
from other working stiffs is
that he won't be home tonight
to tuck in his baby girl or kiss
his wife good night.
Timmons, 27, is a profes-
sional baseball player. His job
will keep him away from his
family for the next five
It's a sporting Ide
that has its advan- .,
tages and its
"This time of
year is always
the toughest,"
Timmons said
Monday via
cell phone as
he drove north to
Richmond, Va., where he will
be the opening day third base-
man for the Richmond Braves,
the Atlanta Braves Triple-A
"It's always tough leaving
my wife. There are a lot of guys
in that locker room who miss
their families."
Timmons is entering his
sixth year in the minor
leagues, and his second at
Triple-A, the final rung before
the majors.
Just making it to Triple-A, let
alone starting there as
Timmons did last year, is an
incredible accomplishment.
At that level, players are one
phone call away from the
"bigs," but also one bad outing
or an injury away from "going
down" a level or two.
It's a slippery slope any way
you cut it.
"When you get to Triple-A,
you have to put up the num-
bers or you're working an
everyday job like everybody

else," Timmons said matter-of-
"There's no job security in
Last season at Richmond,
Timmons, a 1997 Fletcher
High grad, hit as high as .320
before a broken thumb
derailed his first-half numbers.
After eight weeks of rehab,
Timmons returned to
Richmond and batted .280 in
71 games with 15 doubles and
26 RBI.
A career .280 hitter,
Timmons knows he needs to
average .300 or better this sea-
son to catch the attention
of the parent club.

A something really
'. exceptional, like
hit 330with
double digit
home runs.
That's just
r how this
works," he explained.
,Hitting has never been a
problem for Timmons. He bat-
ted over .400 at Fletcher in
1996 and 1997, and .422 ver-
sus NCAA Division I pitching
as a college senior.
The former MVP of the
Shenandoah Valley wooden
bat league, Timmons was a
12th-round draft pick of the
Braves in June 2002.
He spent his rookie year with
the Single-A Macon (Ga.)
Braves and his sophomore sea-
son in Rome, Ga., where he
helped led his club to a league
Starting stints at High-A
(Myrtle Beach) and Double-A
(Biloxi, Miss.) followed. He got
his first call-up to Richmond in
late 2005.
Last month, Timmons (6-
foot, 190 pounds) appeared in
two spring training games for
the Braves, who are loaded at
the infield positions this sea-
son, especially at third base, '
where All-Star Chipper Jones is

entrenched as the starter.
The logjam at third doesn't
bode well for Timmons, who
might lose his starting spot in
Richmond if Atlanta sends
someone down in a few weeks.
The Braves have three utility
infielders on their 25-man ros-
ter, but one, Willy Aybar, is on
the disabled list. Aybar, who
played third in 36 games last
season, is listed as Jones' pri-
mary backup. Veteran Chris
Woodward and Pete Orr, are
Atlanta's other utility infield-
"When he comes off the DL,
something has to happen,"
said Timmons, adding that
Atlanta can keep only two util-
ity infielders on their active
"It will come down to what
they want to do in Atlanta, but
I can make it tougher for them
to send me down if I'm hitting
.330 after the first two weeks.
"I'm not a young prospect.
The only thing that will get me
to the big leagues is bigger
numbers. Every year, they are
drafting guys to take your
Timmons spent the offsea-
son training at the HIT Center
off Phillips Highway with other
pro athletes such as
Jacksonville native and
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher
Brett Myers.
He also taught P.E. at Chets
Creek Elementary off Hodges
Boulevard, where his wife,
Randi, teaches special ed.
Trying to make ends meet
with part-time teaching and a
minor league salary doesn't
come close to cutting it, and
Timmons knows it.
But he's not ready to set a
time table on when he'll stop
chasing his dream to play in
the majors.
"My parents have been
ridiculously supportive, but it
doesn't get any easier for my
wife," Timmons admitted.

Try Migun of the Beaches for leading-

edge health & wellness alternatives

\V hen Barbara Fettig traveled back home to Traverse
City, Mich., last summer for a family reunion, she had
no idea that she'd get hooked on the idea of opening a
health & wellness alternatives store in Atlantic Beach.
"A friend of mine had gone through breast cancer,
and her cancer treatment center sent her to a Migun
pronounced MEE-gun) store as a treatment modality -
a way to be kind to herself because of what all she'd
been through," Barbara said. "She started going there
and just loved it, so she took me there." What Barbara
experienced started her on a new career.
"I had had this tingling in my hands for four or five
years and thought I was getting carpal tunnel and figured
eventually I'd have to have surgery," she said. "I went to
the Migun store with her probably three or four times
over a couple of weeks before I realized that the tingling
was gone... it was just gone!" From then on Barbara was
on a mission to bring a MNigun store to the Beaches.
The word "Nligun" is Korean and means "beautiful
health," according to Barbara. "The Migun Company
was established in 1988, when they first produced a
portable far-infrared kit that gives off far-infrared heat
that is, heat on the far end of the infra-red scale," she
said. "Through a lot of research and development, they
developed the first Migun bed in 1997, and we carry the
latest models of the Migun bed in our store."
Fully approved by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration as a 510K Class II medical device the
same category as a CAT scan or x-ray machine, the
Migun thermal massage bed does not require a prescrip-
tion yet its benefits are documented, especially in low-
ering blood pressure and helping diabetics.
"The Nligun bed is based on four principles chiro-
practic, massage, acupressure and moxibustion, which
means healing with heat," Barbara said.
In essence, what the Migun Company has developed is
almost like an automated acupressure massage machine.
"It involves acupressure, chiropractic and massage, and
it moves up and down your spine and gently stretches
out your vertebrae and allows them to re-position,"
Barbara explained. "You know how we get our spines out
of alignment all the time by carrying purses and gym
bags on one shoulder only which means we're forev-
er stressing our spine and muscles! The Migun bed treat-
ment is certainly helpful in loosening all that up."
Here's what to expect at your first visit to Migun of the
Beaches. "First-timers are asked to sign in and complete
a registration form, which details some health issues that
we need to be aware of they must be 18, and must not
be taking blood thinners or have a pacemaker or any
type of long metallic orthopedic rod in their back," said
Barbara, who co-owns the Atlantic Beach store with her
daughter, Amanda Kirt. "If you have questions at all
about the MNigun treatment and certain health condi-
tions, just drop by or call us to confirm that it's right for
syou, as it varies a little bit by an individual's suitability."
Then clients attend a Nligun product orientation in the
stoie's education center. "We offer first-timers a little ori-
entation so they can understand the product and how it
works," she said. "\Ve want them to know what to expect
and also make them aware that after the treatment they
should see improvement if they're having pain from some
injury to their spine. The Migun modality really can help
with high blood pressure, diabetes and even allergies."
Then comes the fun. Clients lay down on the Migun
bed and experience, first-hand, the Mligun experience,
which "promotes balance and harmony in the whole
body, thus allowing the body its full potential to heal
itself." The thermal massage bed features jade probes

Barbara Fettig, co-owner of the new Migun of the Beaches
store in Atlantic Beach, explains the innovative Migun ther-
mal massage bed that combines chiropractic, massage, acu-
pressure and moxibustion, which is healing with heat.

that massage and give off gentle far-infrared heat as
they travel alongside the spine and behind the head and
down to the ankles. The mechanism automatically
pauses in different areas along this path.
"There are about 200 accupressure points up, down and
alongside your spine, and the Nfigun bed catches the
majority of these on most people," Barbara said. As it
moves up and down it gives you a good, vigorous and
intense massage because the weight of your body is actu-
ally what produces the intensity of the massage. "The dis-
tances apart in the massage movement will act similar to
a chiropractic modality, in that if you have little kinks in
your spine, it will pull them back into alignment," she
said. "However, if you've done something more major to
your spine, you need to see a professional."
Migun of the Beaches has been open for only a few
weeks, and already several people have dropped in to try
the Migun bed for free! "That's the part people just
have a hard time understanding," Barbara said. "It's tree
for you to come here and try out the bed as often as
you'd like." The Nligun Company is a firm believer in
having people come in any number of times and try the
bed because they want people to have time to evaluate
it and see the health benefits, she said.
"Once they see the health benefits, many people elect
to have one in their home, and we certainly can help
them with that," she said. "\Ve have a payment program
and accept all major credit cards, so it's very doable for
most people."
"Some people are in transition or just don't have enough
space fpr one in their home or condo, but we don't discourage
them from coming in because almost all of our advertising is
word of mouth," Barbara said. "So we ask people to tell their
friends and acquaintances about Migun of the Beaches and
bring them in for a free massage any day that we're open."
Nfigun of the Beaches is located in Atlantic Beach at
363 Atlantic Blvd., Suite 12, between Peterbrooke
Chocolates and Starbucks. Visits are free. For those
interested in purchasing their own thermal massage sys-
tem or Nligun bed, major credit cards and payment
plans are accepted. For more information about a free

Wahoo took center stage from

Capt. Tony Davenport,
Jerry Moulton, Jack Ross and
Jody Rogers made the long
run last week on the
"Relentless" and it really paid
off. They caught three wahoo,
three dolphin to 33 pounds
and two blackfin tuna before
heading home.
Anglers on the "Reel
Mayhem" out of St.
Augustine with Wade, Jake,
Ryan and Brian on board
trolled up four wahoo before
dropping down and pulling
up a 12-pound snapper.
Everton Whyle, Uzoma

took pictures of their largest
sheepshead they caught on
the pier.

Inshore, the
speckled trout
and sheepshead
are biting and the
pompano and
drum have
moved into the
surf under the
Beach Pier.

On the "Mayport Princess,"
Matt Reichenbalk probably
had the weeks' largest fish

with a 60-pound cobia.
Christian Carlson brought a
30-pound blackfin home.
Other anglers on the
"Princess" piled snapper, sea
bass, grouper and kingfish on
the Monty's cleaning table.
Lucky anglers on the "King
Neptune" last Thursday came
off with a 50-pound cobia,
eight kings, a grouper and 13
snapper up to 14 pounds.
Coolers were also filled with
smaller sea bass and beeliners.
Rusty and Glenn
Borthwick, on the "Tracy III,"
weighed up a 50-pound cobia
and six triple-tails they
caught last week.
Anglers on the Jacksonville
Beach Pier were beginning to
bunch up along the rails last
week. This usually means a
bite is on and indeed it was.
Drum, Spanish, blues,
flounder, whiting and yellow-
mouth were coming over the
rails all last week. Zack
Dagher had 15 Spanish and
10 blues in his cooler when
he left the pier.
Spencer Brogden had all of
the species covered in his
cooler and lots of them. Cory
Thomas caught five pompano
and Mike Youngblood
weighed up three four-pound

So what now, Billy?

What price glory for
Billy Donovan at the
conclusion of this
mad NCAA Tournament?
Win, lose or get rained out
(even in the Georgia Dome)
the talk for days has been cen-
tered on the possibility of the
Florida basketball coach suc-
cumbing to the chase of the
Kentucky Wildcats to come in
and be their hoops messiah
and bring back the glory days.
Until now, Donovan has
been as quiet as a mummy.
Will he stay? Will he go to the
Bluegrass State? Or will an
NBA team make him an offer
that's difficult to refuse?
Gator hopefuls think Billy
would laugh at the idea of
leaving. "For two cents, I'd tell
them where to take their
offer," they hope he will say.
"But for three million clams, I
wouldn't want to be rude. I'll
have to think it over."
The reports are that
Donovan can be had for $3.5
million a year. That's a lot of
mint julep for the old colonels
to sip on the veranda. That's
enough to turn Billy into a
card-carrying Southerner who
can always say he hails from
the south of Manhattan where
he grew up playing stickball
with a drawl.
Now seriously, Billy, would
you really leave Gainesville
just to follow in the footsteps
of Adolph Rupp and his disci-
ples, knowing that deep down
the real Kentucky fans would
never accept a fake Rupp? In
Alabama, there's never been
another Bear Bryant, as far as
all the nuts, er-fans, are con-
cerned. And in Kentucky,
there will never be another
Why would you leave a
school and state where you
are right now regarded by
Florida cage fans (who have
been revived from near
extinction) as the second
coming? The first coming we
all understand was thought to
be Steve Spurrier, but alas, he
vanished with the sight of all
those greenbacks from
Washington, which turned
out to be another illusion.
Don't do it, Billy, who may
from Tuesday morning for-
ward be officially known as..
"Sir William" in'fid'a'ouh'd''
Gainesville. The grass i' zibt:
always greener on the other
guy's plantation. In fact,
you'll find neither green nor
blue grass in Kentucky in the
winter time it's frozen. Puts
a damper o that golf game.
There's another angle to
think about, too. Tell us, Billy,
if you accept the job with
Kentucky after your fine work
in the last two NCAA tourna-
ments, will they let you bring
your Gators players with you?
You know, some are finally
graduating and others may'
leave for the riches of profes-

*"7 ;


sional basketball.
Speaking of which, n
enough has been said f(
those who came back ti
son. That's saying a gre
about Florida's coach at
staff. It's one thing to p
the coaches after leaving
something else to pass
that gold just to have a
try for a second consec
national championship
To take the job at Ker
would be to start all ov
again. To remain with t
Gators and pursue even
greater goals would be i
building on what has a
been started. And with
dandy head start. Not f
foreseeable future will r
ing be a chore.
It's easier to build a s

and successful basketball pro-
gram when you have a first-
class (and championship)
football program to attract
recruits. And it's a lot easier to
sell high school youngsters on
a campus where the weather is
so friendly to golf, swimming,
fishing, boating and maybe
S even going to class.
So, Billy, say to those
.-: Kentucky people, "Not this
time," but be nice about it.
i "Y'all come back now, ya
SON hear?"
On another big front, the
Masters will take place this
week at Augusta National. It
was thought that maybe they
would want to change the
ot playing dates to have better
or weather, maybe say, in July.
his sea- While it's true we haven't
at deal heard folks whining about
nd The Masters being contested
)raise in terrible April weather, or
ig; it's conflicting with basketball or
up all baseball or motor racing, we
final know the Masters would like
utive to keep up with The Players.
Without the Masters, The
ntucky Players would just be consid-
er ered a warm-up for fhe U.S.
:he Open or PGA Championship.
With The Players now in May,
merely plus a spanking-new club-
Iready house and grounds, everyone
a should be happy for a change.
or the Whom do we pick to win?

against the law to pick anyone
steady else, isn't it?
