FESTIVAL OF
CHARIOTS


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
A cell tower proposed off
Roscoe Boulevard fought by
Ponte Vedra residents and
denied last year by the St.
Johns County Commission -
is back, causing much stir at a
civic group meeting Monday.
"It's the Roscoe one [tower]
coming back again," Clara
Cowan, president of the Ponte
Vedra Beaches Coalition, said


at the organization's meeting
at the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library.
The Coalition OK'd a reso-
lution seeking a county mora-
torium on new cell towers,
which Coalition president
Clara Cowan presented at
Tuesday's meeting of the St.
Johns County Commission.
The organization, which
represents nearly two dozen
homeowner associations,


wants a temporary halt in
tower construction while the
county's cell tower ordinance
is revised.


See related story
below.


County attorney Patrick
McCormack told commission-


ers he would see if any court
decisions would support a
moratorium, adding that such
a move could be construed as
a "prohibitive" action by the
county, which is prohibited
by federal law.
The Coalition voted to seek
the moratorium after a lively
discussion on a lawsuit settle-
ment proposed for the Roscoe
Boulevard tower.
The lawsuit was filed last


year by Verticality, the compa-
ny that was denied the 150-
foot tower in October.
County Commissioner Tom
Manuel of Ponte Vedra Beach
said "there has been a settle-
ment offer" but offered no
specifics.
However, a June 11 letter to
Manuel from the Players Club

KEYING
INTO 2007


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
A Ponte Vedra Beach homeowner
association apparently has given tacit
approval to a compromise on a cell
tower proposed off Roscoe Boulevard,
*angering at least one Roscoe resident.
A June 11 letter from the Sawgrass
Players Club Homeowners Association
to County Commissioner Tom Manuel
says that although the association
opposes the tower, it would go along
with a compromise lowering the tower's
height and putting it closer to Roscoe
Boulevard.
That would put the tower further
from the TPC Valley Course. and Players
Club properties, angering former
County Commissioner Mary Kohnke, a

Roscoe resident.
"Put it by residents on Roscoe, but
keep it away from the TPC," Kohnke
said at Monday's meeting of the Ponte
Vedra Beaches Coalition.
"I think that's sick. I mean, really,
that's just typical."
Clara Cowan, president of the
Coalition, told county commissioners
Tuesday that the compromise is good
for the .company proposing the tower,
Verticality, but pits neighbor against
neighbor.
"Divide and conquer works beautiful-
ly," she said in presenting a resolution
asking for a tower moratorium. County
attorney Patrick McCormack said he
would look into the issue.
Verticality sued last year in federal
court over the county's denial of the
tower, and the lawsuit is on hold while
a compromise is discussed.
But the Players Club association's let-
ter rankled Kohnke when it was dis-
cussed at the Coalition's meeting at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.
The tower is proposed at 276 N.
Roscoe Blvd. on property owned by
Lord of Life Lutheran Church.
Originally, the proposal was for a 150-
foot tower, but the compromise suggests
the tower would be 135 feet instead.
Bill Garrett, president of the Players
Club association, defended the associa-
tio'n's position', noting tlat" the issue
would be "moot" because both the

Potter mania hits Beaches I


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

Saturday was the second "Y Kids
Tri" triathlon at the Winston Family
YMCA in Ponte Vedra Beach, and
the field of competitors was more
than four times the size of last
year's.
Held at the Landrum Lane Y, the
event attracted more than 100 chil-
dren ages 6 to 12, far surpassed the
inaugural year, when 20 to 25 chil-
dren participated.
The swimming-biking-ruinning
event, standard order for a
triathlon, was held in three age divi-
sions: 6 to 7, 8 to 10 and 11 to 12,
with distances varying by age level.
The older kids kicked off the com-
petition, with.Joseph Paul being the
first swimmer out of the water. After
changing into running shoes with


socks in the transition area, he also
was the first bicyclist to get rolling.
However, there were no winners.
No times were kept nor competition
awards given. All youngsters
received participation awards.
"We're not going to do winners.
This race is just for fun," said the
event's volunteer, coordinator,
Andrea Kauffman, who teaches at
Ocean Palms Elementary and' las
placed in Beaches Fine Arts Series
triathlons.
"A lot of kids are nervous about
swimming; they're nervous about
doing any part of it. They just want
to go out and have a good time."
The 6- and 7-year-olds swam 25
yards one lap in the YMCA pool
- biked one-half mile and ran a
quarter mile.

FROM STAFF
Youngsters from Ponte Vedra to
Atlantic Beach joined others world-
wide to celebrate Saturday's release
of the much-anticipated, seventh
and final Harry Potter book.
More than 10 million copies of
"Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows" had been sold worldwide
as of Monday, becoming the fastest-
selling book on record, according to
published reports.
In Ponte Vedra Beach, youngsters
gathered Saturday at the library for a
Harry Potter lock-in scheduled 6
p.m. to 10 p.m., with a scavenger
hunt, snacks and Potter-related
games.
The game "every flavor beans"
asked players to guess the number of
jelly beans in a bowl, bringing to


mind the myriad flavors of jelly
beans (some of the yucky ones are
"dirt" and "earwax"i that are popu-
lar in Potter's world of wizards.
The Ponte Vedra game of "quid-
ditch" was quite unlike the Potter
variety, where characters on flying
brooms using lacrosse-like nets try
to snare A flying ball called the
snitch. The library's version had
players keep balloons in the air.
In Atlantic Beach, The Bookmark
marked Saturday's book release by
opening at a.m., and by that time,
Melanie Rose, 13, Janaki Perera, 14
and Betty Lu, 15, had been waiting
an hour and 40 minutes. They were
first in line.
For that feat, they were given the
honor of opening the first box of
books.

Swim Diapers are not perfect protection in the water


Swimming is good, clean
summer fun for small children-
but University of Florida experts
caution that swim diapers won't
necessarily keep the water clean,
and that could spell trouble if
sick kids go in the pool. Fred
Southwick, a professor and chief
of the infectious disease division
at UF's College of Medicine, said
noroviruses are shed in bodily
fluids, and if released into a pool
could be transmitted to other
children if they ingest water or
even touch their mouths with
wet hands. Swim diapers are
designed to hold solid waste but


may not stop diarrhea from
leaking out. U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
officials say no swim diapers are
leakproof and that no manufac-
turer claims its products prevent
diarrhea.leakage. CDC devoted
a page to the topic:
http://www.cdc.gov/healthyswi
mming/swim diapers.htm.
Noroviruses, previously known
as Norwalk-like viruses, cause
gastroenteritis, inflammation of
the stomach and large intestine.
Symptoms often begin sud-
denly and can last 24 to 60
hours.

Many parents fill wading
pools with a garden hose, using
tap water that contains less
chlorine than is used to main-
tain larger pools, said food safe-
ty expert Keith Schneider, an
associate professor with UF's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. "I do not
think tap water has enough
residual chlorine levels to main-
tain a high enough chlorine
level to be efficacious against
most pathogens in that type of
environment," Schneider said.
Adding chlorine to a wading
pool isn't a good idea, either,
because in such a small body of
water it would be difficult to
maintain the correct level of the
chemical.
"I think one of the best pre-
ventative measures is to not let
the pathogens in the pool in the
first place," Schneider said. "One
sick kid can make a lot of sick
kids."

Ferry funding will take cooperation, backers say


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
The Jaxport Board of Directors Monday
explored several options to increase rev-
enue to the Mayport ferry, should
Jaxport assume responsibility, according
to Mayport Waterfront Partnership Chair
Paul Parsons.
The city of Jacksonville has said the St.
Johns River Ferry has become too expen-
sive to maintain, prompting a scramble
to find ways to keep it running.
One revenue-creating proposal the
board discussed is to increase fares and
reduce hours of operation, according to
Fred Berley, general manager of
Hornblower, the company that operates
the ferry, emphasizing that details are
not definitive.
"There are things that we have to work
out with them," said Berley.
The board suggested fares for 2-axle
private vehicles could increase from
$3.25 to $5, according to Berley.
Berley told members of the Mayport
Partnership Tuesday at a meeting to
discuss the Jaxport board workshop the


day before that about $300,000 a year
could be saved by increasing the fee and
reducing the hours.
The ferry would operate during peak
hours and would continue to run at half-
hour intervals, he said.
Another option the board considered is
to eliminate the extra boat,
"Blackbeard," which is out of service.
That could save about $200,000 per year,
Parsons said.
The partnership discussed these alter-
natives as well as ways it could remain
active in its efforts to show support for
the ferry.
Partnership member Don Remley sug-
gested designating a "Ride the Ferry"
month to increase awareness and the
number of passengers, and many mem-
bers agreed with the idea.
"We've got to give people the idea that
the ferry is a fun thing to ride," he said.
However, Parsons said the key to the
ferry's success is involving nearby cities.
"I think the best thing that we can do
is get the support from the municipali-
ties," he said.
He also said that it is important


that civic associations and government
agencies show how they can support the
ferry.
For example, Parsons asked the city of
Atlantic Beach for a "token" contribu-
tion of about $5,000 to $10,000, possibly
from bed tax funds, according to Atlantic
Beach Mayor Don Wolfson.
"These guys [Jaxport board] are just
looking for support. They really don't
care how much it is," Parsons said.
Atlantic Beach City Manager J i m
Hanson said at a City Commission meet-
ing Monday that monetary support of
the ferry may not be an allowable use of
funds.
The partnership also discussed bring-
ing in additional revenue by selling T-
shirts and trinkets.
Members of the partnership said the
gqal is to find funding for the ferry for at
least one year, which could give them
enough time to generate support and
additional funding.
The Jaxport board of directors will
make its final decision Aug. 13.

Residents rip plans for hotels


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A high-density, mixed-use
development proposed in
south Jacksonville Beach gen-
erated a public outcry
Thursday at a meeting to
introduce nearby residents to
the project.
The meeting, organized' b'
representatives of th-e' Gefesis-
Group at Hampton Inn on
Marsh Landing Parkway, a few
blocks south of the site for the
proposed project South
Beach Parkway at Jacksonville
Drive.
More than 150 persons
attended the nearly two-hour
meeting Thursday to listen to
the proposal and comment on
the development that would
abut 14 existing homes.
Many people in attendance


shouted from their seats or
stood to speak over the
uproarious crowd to compen-
sate for the lack of a micro-
phone.
Property owners Claude and
Eva Perry of Birmingham,
Ala., hired the Genesis Group
to develop the plans for the
'10.5-acre. parcel .
"It w'a.i5 a lousy p[resenta-
tion,' resident Deari
Thompson said after the meet-
ing. "They are asking way too
much."
The development would
add a 110-room hotel, a 65-
room boutique hotel, a
45,000-square-foot commer-
cial office building, an upscale
restaurant and retail space on
the southwest corner of the
intersection.
"We really don't want this
type of development in this


area," one speaker said. "I just
don't see this working the way
you have it here."
To accommodate such a
project, the Development of
Regional Impact (DRI) which
regulates the amount of com-
mercial space in the Southend
Redevelopment District would
need to be modified and the
property rezoned to a Planned
Unit De'eiopmnent, city offi-
cials said.
The property is presently
zoned residential single family
but planners contend that the
city's Redevelopment Plan has
always designated the land for
office use.
"If it is zoned for offices,
keep it offices," one resident
stated during the public com-
ment portion of the meeting.
"Don't try and cram this
down our throats."


Triathlon: It's all about having fun

Scott and Kelly Winer of Ponte Vedra Beach stand beside their "Y Kids Tri" athletes, daughter
Rachel and son Daniel, before the youngsters begin Saturday's competition at the Winston Family
YMCA.


Continued from A-1
The 8 to 10s swam 50 yards
- two laps rode a one-mile
bike loop and ran a half mile.
The oldest group swam four
laps (100 yards), biked for two
miles and ran for one.
The bicycling portion began
behind the YMCA. With area
roadways not available, the
youngest group used part of
the Ponte Vedra Presbyterian
Church back parking lot, while
the two groups of older young-
sters rode over fields.
"It's going to be more of a
cross country this time," said


Kauffman. "Unfortunately, the
road didn't work out, so we're
going to be doing a little ex-
terra race. But it'll be fun. The
kids are excited, and we're
excited."
"The Kids Tri is an opportu-
nity to have fun first and
foremost, to have fun," said
Jennifer Joy, Winston Family
YMCA's wellness director.
"And to get some exposure,
because there are kids
triathlons in other cities. This
is the second one for us, and
it's exciting," said Joy, who
won in the 35 to 39 age group


July 14 in the Beaches Fine Arts
Series Triathlon's final event
for the season.
"I think it's exciting because
a lot of the parents in this area
do triathlons and are active. So
it's a way for their kids to get
exposure."
Joy emphasized the "no win-
ners" aspect of the event.
"It is all about finishing the
course and having a good time.
We have wonderful finishers
medals for them. Everyone
wins today."

Homeowners Association
notes a compromise would
lower the tower to 135 feet
and would move it from the
back of the property to a spot
closer to Roscoe Boulevard.
The parcel at 276 Roscoe
Blvd. is owned by Lord of Life
Lutheran Church, which will
receive revenue from the
tower company.
Verticality's lawsuit claims
the county's denial of the
tower violates the federal law
preventing local governments
from acting to prohibit wire-
less service to customers.
Those opposing the tower
said it would be a visual blight
that would lower property val-
ues.
In a telephone interview


Monday, McCormack said the
case has been temporarily put
on hold "to allow the parties
to have settlement discus-
sions."
In a shade meeting that
is, a meeting held out of the
public's view as allowed by
law the St. Johns County
Commission agreed to have
settlement discussions and to
get input from the Ponte
Vedra community,
McCormack said.
A meeting .seeking that
input will be scheduled in
Ponte Vedra Beach in mid or
late August, he said, and
before the County
Commission takes action on
the proposed settlement.
"My position is we have a
strong legal position [in the


case]," McCormack said
Monday.
"At the same time . I
think in particular [with]
telecommunication tower
cases, there's a lot of uncer-
tainty in the law."
McCormack told the com-
mission that county staff is
reviewing the tower ordi-
nance, which needs updating
to fit with "significant
changes" in state law made in
2005.
Among recent changes in
state law is a provision that,
essentially, assumes there is
somewhat of a need for cell
towers, McCormack said in
the telephone interview.
"Generally, we can't even
ask them to show that there is
a need," he said.


Neighbors: Both Coalition members


Continued from A-1
church and Roscoe residents
would oppose the compromise.
"We figured the church
wouldn't go for it," Garrett
explained to Coalition mem-
bers.
"We knew Palm Valley
would fight it, tooth and nail,"
Garrett said, calling the com-
promise "a step" to avoid
going to court.
. "Don't -coutt' tninthe ,church -
- they need the money,"
Kohnke responded.
Many Roscoe Boulevard resi-
dents are members of the Palm
Valley Community Association
which, along with the Sawgrass
Players Club association, is a
member of the Coalition.
The Coalition has nearly two
dozen member homeowner
associations, and solidarity
among the associations is often
viewed as one of the
Coalition's strengths.
Cowan told commissioners


that the issue has residents
"snapping at each other."
Kohnke suggested that
Coalition members should
stick together.

The Leader's Opinion

Coercion is no way

to fund ferry operation

The Mayport Ferry is a vital link in State Road A1A,
a state responsibility.
Commuters from Duval County and Nassau County
rely on the transit link, making it a county responsi-
bility.
Yet, in the quest to secure funding for the ferry,
which is anticipating a $1 million operational shortfall
next year, alternative revenue sources are being
sought.
The Beaches cities are being pressured to provide
money to keep the ferry afloat.
It should be noted that the ferry most immediately
serves the historic Mayport fishing village and is vital
to its continued economic health. The village, howev-
er, is not located in any of the Beach municipalities.
We and other supporters of the ferry want to see it
continue operations. It is unreasonable, though, to ask
the Beach cities to ante up when the state and county
will not.
Extorting Beaches taxpayers to dip into their much
smaller coffers to do what others with bigger means
and obligation won't is wrong.
The ferry is an asset that should be maintained. That
has been our position even before the state abdicated
its responsibility years ago to keep A1A linked, bailing
out of running the ferry.




Letters to the editor:


Name the new school that serves

PV the Ponte Vedra High School


To the editor:
The issue that has been the
most important aspect of the
new school has always been -
where will the students from
PONTE VEDRA have a high
school! If the new principal
from south Florida is not made
aware of the energy and angst
and rancor this community


went through these last few
years to GET a high school for
PONTE VEDRA then it will be a
shame.
The school should be named
Ponte Vedra High School.

Ponte Vedra,


City workers appreciated for

quick response to fallen tree limb


To the editor:
We often take for granted
the services provided by our
city workers. I would like't'
'take this opportunity to com-
mend the employees of the
Atlantic Beach Public Works
Department, police and fire
departments for their quick
response to the fallen tree
limb on Sherry Drive which
occurred on Friday, July 20.
The entire street was blocked
by the huge limb and power
lines were knocked down.
There was someone there


from the city immediately
after the limb hit the road.
They were quick and efficient
in the cleanup making it pos-
sible for JEA to reconnect the
power lines that had been dis-
connected. The police aid
fire department did a great
job of traffic control which
allowed the workers to com-
plete the cleanup.
Thanks for a job well done.

Hypocrites just don't understand


To the editor:
I see the hypocrites still
don't "get it".
This republic is/was found-
ed on rule of law. The law
applies equally to the rich
and the poor, the old and the
young, the beautiful and the
ugly, the liked and the
unlike, and the big and the
little.
The point Mrs. Pardee was
making was that any hoops
that Walmart had to jump
through, Starbucks should
have to also. It is the rule of
LAW. Otherwise petty bureau-
crats become despots &


tyrants.
And speaking of.hypocrites,
having fussed about condos
going up along Atlantic
Boulevard and clogging their
evacuation route, AB is
approving 114 new units. At
the cost of the units, you
know they will have at least
two cars for each unit, and
you know they won't leave
any behind. [That's] 228
more cars to evacuate along
Atlantic Blvd.

We're all tapped out on

bottled water these days


Feel bad for the bottled-
water people. Back in the
late 1980s, young upwardly
mobile professionals -- yup-
pies, if you recall the term --
suddenly had cash to burn.
This was the baby-boom gen-
eration. It demanded the good
life -- the best of everything.,

The baby boomers rejected
the simple approach of their
cost-conscious parents. To
heck with Folgers; they
demanded freshly roasted spe-
cialty coffees (Starbucks). To
heck with Budweiser; they
wanted specialty beers (micro-
brews). And to heck with fresh
water that poured right out of
your kitchen tap; they wanted
bottled spring water from exot-
ic mountain locations.
Older 'generations never
could understand the concept
of bottled water. My father (the
Big Gu'Ji surely couldn't.
Big Guy: You want to pay
money for something that
comes out of your kitchen tap?
Yuppie: That's right.
Big Guy: But you're'paying
$10 a gallon for something you
already have.
Yuppie: Only the best for
me.
Big Guy: But tap water is
nearly FREE.
And so it was that the trendy
crowd turned the bottled water
market into :a gold mine. By
2004, some 41 billion gallons
were sold -- that's upwards of
$100 billion in revenue. But
suddenly the bottled-water
party is.over.
Many of the same trendy
folks who made bottled water
hip have decided to stop drink-
ing it because another trend is
more hip.
According to Newsday, bot-
tled water is bad for the envi-
ronment. It requires some 50
million gallons of oil each year
to produce the plastic bottles
in which it is contained. Add
to that the energy burned to

More letters to the editor:


Politicians are not being straightforward about taxes


To the editor:
I was so glad to finally see
some letters regarding the
ridiculous scare tactics of our
local politicians.
I have lived in south
Jacksonville Beach since 1944
and Jacksonville all of my life.
When we first moved here to
the Beach there were maybe 6
cars on Butler Boulevard in
the morning on the way to
work. Now you know how
many there are. All this


increased volume did not just
come from St. Johns County,
obviously they are living in
Jacksonville Beach. This does
not take a Harvard grad to fig-
ure out that in the last 10 12
years a lot of people have
built homes and million dol-
lar condos and moved to the
beach.
The taxes at the beach are
hefty especially with all the
million dollar condos on the
beach. I have to ask where all


the extra tax dollars are
going?
To threaten the tax payers
with police and fireman lay
offs is just laughable. I per-
sonally think we heed to lay
off some of those overpaid
politicians. We could hire
three police officers for every
politician fired. This is a good
solution.

Drivers in cars with AC can wait for biker to pass


To the editor:
Your recent articles and editorial about bicy-
clists not stopping at stop signs in Ponte Vedra
was obviously written by someone who does
not ride a bicycle.
It is ridiculous to expect a biker to stop com-
pletely at a stop sign when there are no cars in
an intersection. Bikers should be given the same
right of way as pedestrians for the same reasons,
we have no protection from cars, we are
exposed to the elements, and we provide a ben-


efit to society by exercising, and not using auto-
mobiles.
Is it such a big deal for a driver in an air con-
ditioned car to wait a couple seconds while a
biker travels through an intersection? Get off
your chair and away from your computer, ride a
bike and you will soon have a different opinion
about bikers.

Oh, what I

would do

for a bus

that would

take me

to the zoo


It's true: We have a zoo. A
very good one, too. The
only trouble is, on getting
there I really have no clue,
but it's something I wanna
do.
Mossbacks such as me often
worry about sitting at the
wheel of our knockmobile to
brave the hazards of the super-
slabs, which we consider to be
a rough (very!) equivalent of
the Daytona- Speedway.
However, a bus I can bear.
Zounds, I once rode for 13
hours in a busted school bus
from lofty Quito, Ecuador,
down into the Amazon.jungle.
In comparison, a Jacksonville
Transportation Authority vehi-
cle would be luxurious even if
Ralph Kramden were driving.
But here's the rub: For us,
there's apparently no direct
bus route to the zoo. At the
JTA Internet web site, I
requested a trip plan from my
house in Neptune Beach to the
vicinity of the zoo. The total
ongay,.fare ,,as reasonable:
S2., ,U fortunately, it includ-
ed a transfer to another bus at
EC.CJ. Station, which alleged-
ly allows only ten minutes to
get to the new bus. Depending
on how far it is, and how fast I
could hobble, I might miss the
connection.
The other difficulty is the
walking distance from
Heckscher Drive and Zoo
Parkway (where the second
bus presumably drops me off)
to the zoo entrance. According
to the zoo driving instructions,
it looks like it's a mile afoot.
Phew! Could I tiptoe that far
through the tulips?
To me, there's only one solu-
tion to the problem: JTA and
the zoo need to team up to
provide a more convenient
and less exhausting route to
the zoo for oldsters at the
Beaches. I see it as a special bus
maybe once a week from a
Beaches-area shopping center
all the way, non-stop, to the
zoo and return. If it were
established and properly pub-
licized, I bet it would be a big
hit. JTA, we're told, is redesign-
ing the bus system. This could
be part of it.
Assuming I'm a typical
Beaches senior citizen, there
are probably plenty of us who
may have seen the zoo many
years ago, if ever, and who
could be enthusiastic good will
ambassadors (a "Zoo Crew")
for that institution, revving up
'attendance of younger folks.
As I understand it, there have
been many wonderful changes
made in recent years. Word of
mouth is a powerful advertis-
ing medium.
I can't wait to see the man-
drill. I hope he finds oil.

Required

sewer plant

improvement

taxpayers


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Jacksonville Beach is partner-
ing with the St. Johns River
Water Management District to
bring the city's wastewater
treatment -plant into compli-
ance with new federal stan-
dards.
The Environmental
Protection Agency enacted a
new policy that limits the
amount of nitrogen being
deposited into the lower river
basin.
Nitrogen allocations will be
enforced through Wastewater
and Stormwater National
Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System permits.
Permit holders will be
required to complete major
capital improvements to meet
the new specifications.
The City Council last week
approved a $6 million cost
sharing contract with SJRWMD
to rebuild the city's existing
treatment facility.
"The Jacksonville Beach cost
may be up to $20 million. Our
entire water and sewer budget
for the year is $9 million so it is
going to be an enormous cost
to you as tax payers," City
Manager George Forbes said.
"We're not done. We intend


to ask for more money. This is
a good start."
Jacksonville Beach has
obtained both wastewater and
stormwater NPDES permits
which will have nitrogen limits
added by the FDEP in the com-
ing years.
The engineering study for
the project is complete and a
the design of the new plant is
underway.
City officials are also seeking
state and federal grants to help
fund the project.


Woman stabbed while walking dog


FROM STAFF
A 21-year-old Jacksonville Beach woman is
recovering from injuries sustained when she was
attacked by a man while walking her dog early
Monday morning.
Police observed the woman laying on the
ground in her front yard in a state of shock with
Sher husband kneeling by her side. Several lacer-
ations were visible on her right arm and lower
back.
The victim's husband told police that his wife
went outside to walk their dog around 2 a.m. in
the 1600 block of Bentin Drive.
When she failed to return after several min-
utes, he said he went outside and observed her
running toward him without the dog from
about five houses away.
She appeared to be struggling when she
reached the yard and collapsed to the ground
with wounds that appeared to be inflicted with
a sharp object, possibly a knife.
The victim was finally able to tell police that


dence when two males, dressed
in all black and wearing black
ski masks, came up behind
them and forcibly pulled them
from their lawn chairs, accord-
ing to the report. One of the
victims was pulled about 25 feet
away from the house and was
forced to the ground. The sus-
pect threatened to "put a bullet"
in the victim's head if he did not
hold still. He said he felt an
object on the back of his head
but did not see a gun or any
weapon. The other victim was
dragged into the woods and
pushed to the ground. One of
the suspects pulled the victim's
shoes and sweatshirt off and
stole his wallet and several mis-
cellaneous papers, according to
the report. They also forced
him to pull his pants down
around his ankles, according to
the report.

Robbery was reported on July
22 in the 2300 block of Mayport
Road, according to a police
report. The victim was riding
his bike home at 8:42 p.m.
when a male dressed in black,
jumped up and kicked him off
of his bike, according to the
report. The victim attempted to
get back on the bike to get away
when several other males
grabbed him and began beating
him. They pulled a backpack
until it tore away from the vic-
tim. He was then able to get
back on his bike and get away,
according to the report.

while she was walking her dog, the animal
became excited by a cat and broke loose from
her control.
While she was searching for the dog, police
said the woman was struck by an unknown
object in the back of her head which caused her
to fall to her hands and knees.
A suspect jumped on her back and pushed her
to the ground. She tried to reach for a pocket
knife in her pants pocket when the suspect
grabbed it and struggled to gain control of the
weapon.
According to a police report, the man turned
the victim over on her back and punched her in
the chest. She kicked and punched at the sus-
pect who finally got up and fled in an unknown
direction.
The victim told police the man had a slender
build, was not very strong and was wearing
what she believed to be a motorcycle jacket that
was made of stiff material when the attack took
place.

Seniors learn how to e-mail in the second session of a four-part introduction to computers class being taught by Lucille Devlin
(center) at the Players Community Senior Center on Landrum Lane in Ponte Vedra Beach. Devlin volunteers her time to teach
the free class.




Seniors get computer savvy


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Contrary to public
opinion, not everyone
knows how to operate
a computer.
That's where Lucille
Devlin comes in..
Devlin teachers a four-
week course for "computer
beginners" at the Players
Community Senior Center
in Ponte Vedra.
And those taking Devlin's
class appreciate the opportu-
nity.
"I'm looking to be able to
go to the Internet," said,
Cecil Beggs, who described
his computer knowledge as
"very little" during
Monday's class.
"I've got current events
and global warming (on the
screen)," he said. "Actually,
what I would probably do,
most of the time, is get on
there and look for 'some
kind of sports news. Like
college, NCAA news."
Beggs didn't have a com-


puter until his daughter
gave him hers.
"So now I'm trying to
learn to use it," he said.
"With other things going
on in my life, I might not
use it for a month, then try
to go back. And it's hard to
get back to it."
Devlin is the instructor for
Introduction to Computers
at the senior center. .
"We do four classes and
this isithe second go-
round," she said.
"They are all very novice."
Devlin said that while
most youngsters are comput-
er knowledgeable, many sen-'
iors aren't. She said seniors
face a few challenges getting.
comfortable with computers.
"I think, at the beginning,
it's to lose their fear of it,
and also to manipulate the
mouse. That's the biggest
'challenge," -she said.
The first session Devlin
gave was Introduction to
Basic Computers, the'second
was e-mail. Coming up next
is Word, followed by Excel.


"However, we don't always
stick to my schedule," said
Devlin, whose class is free.
A painting of Don and
LaVonne Blackburn hangs in
the entryway alcove of the
senior center; The
Blackburns made a donation
that enabled the Players
Center to buy furniture.
Now Don Blackburn is
taking in Devlin's class.
"I have a computer, and I
can receive e-mail messages.
And I can send them and so
forth," he said. "Want to
know a little bit more about
what the computer has to
offer. I think our next ses-
sion is going to be on
Microsoft Word, so I need
that."
For Lillian Moncrieff,
Monday's class represented
only her fifth time on a
Computer. And even though
she said she knew nothing
about them, Moncrieff
offered Terri Trindell, sitting
next to her, a helping hand.
Asked why she's taking
the class, Moncrieff said


emphatically, "Definitely
want to learn. Oh, yes. It's
coming, little by little. Just
have to be less afraid.
Everybody tells me 'You
won't break it.' I just don't
want to pull a boo-boo."
Devlin's class is like going
back to square one for
Marina Suarez, who said she
hasn't been on a computer
in 20 years.
"Basic, I forgot, really,"
said Suarez. - "
Lynne Paradise, whose
husband, Brian, leads nature
walks for seniors, said she
needs to add to her'comput-
er knowledge.
"My children, who are
now college age, taught me
how to use the computer.
But all I know how to do is
e-mail, back and forth," she
said.
"I don't even know how
to cut and paste. And I'm
starting to do a lot of volun-
teer work, so I need to have
a little more sense of how to
use the computer in differ-
ent ways."


Youth bowling still


in session at Beaches


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
Bowling is a family affair
for the Solomons of
Jacksonville Beach.
Allen Solomon met his
wife, Susan, in 1970, while
they were on the same youth
bowling league at Beach
Bowl.
Their daughters, Christine,
Becky and Sara, have grown
up bowling at the
Jacksonville Beach bowling
center.
The Solomons have been
directing Beach Bowl's youth
program for the past 18
years.
Christine Solomon
Andrew, a teacher at Fletcher
High School, has been the
girls bowling coach at
Fletcher for the past five
years. Sara Solomon, a
Fletcher sophomore, is on
the bowling team..
Becky, a rising junior at
the University of North
Florida, is in charge of the
scholarship league at Beach
Bowl this summer.


"This is the first year I've
run this entire scholarship
league," Solomon, a psychol-
ogy major, said last week.
"We've been running the
scholarship league about
eight years," added Allen
Solomon
"It's the only league we
hold in the summer. We
started a fall scholarship
league last year. We've
awarded close to $60,000 for
Beaches kids over the last 10
years."
The scholarship league,
held May to August, is held
on Wednesday evenings and
Saturday mornings. An.ongo-
ing fund provides scholar-
ships based on points that
bowlers earn just by partici-
pating. The league's age
range is 10-21, with 17 being
the average.
The 36-member league's
youngest participant is
Taylor Lee, a fifth grader at
San Pablo Elementary.
Also in the 10-11-year-old

St. John's Ladies' Guild publishes its second cookbook


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
Most cookbook collec-
tors have on their
bookshelves several
Community cookbooks.
Their popularity comes from
each cookbook's unique
selection of time-tested
recipes that have been
shared by the contributing
cooks.
The Ladies' Guild at St.
John's Catholic Church
recently published a new
community cookbook,
"Tastes for All Seasons."
This is the second cook-
book by the Guild. "From
Thy Bounty" was published
in the early 1990's, Guild
President Cindy Dubay said.
The Guild's mission is to
provide service within their
parish and in the communi-
ty. They published the cook-
book to raise money for sev-
eral of their outreach and
community projects, said
Ruth Ann Atwell, Guild
member.
These include a St.
Nicholas Festival in
November, a holiday shop
for children, receptions for
First Communion and Easter
Vigil, and parish events for
the feast day of St. John.
More than 70 Guild mem-
bers and several gentlemen
contributed over 200 recipes
for "Tastes for All Seasons."
The Guild worked with a
publishing company that
publishes cookbooks using
computer software. This


decreased the time needed to
finish the project, and all
the contributors were able to
submit their recipes on line,
said Atwell.
True to its name, "Tastes
for All Seasons" offers recipes
for seasonal fruits and veg-
etables, cool summertime
salads, hearty cold weather
main course dishes, interna-
tional recipes, and holiday
specialties.
Atwell and her father
George Powell contributed
recipes for a number of
Polish dishes, including
Powell,s Mushroom Soup.
The soup is one of thirteen
meatless dishes traditionally
served at the family's
Christmas Eve dinner, said
Atwell.
Rene Pachuta's Summer
Harvest Gazpacho and Cindy
Dubay's Fresh Peach Sauce
make good use of the abun-
dance of summertime pro-
duce.
Barbara Knauss,
Bunkhouse Beans would be a
good choice to bring to a
cookout as would Carole
Fuch's Cauliflower Salad.
Enjoy Sandra Tuttle's
Smoked Fish Dip anytime of
the year. This is easy to pre-
pare in the oven even if a


smoker is not available..
The flavor of fresh aspara-
gus makes Debbie Johnson's
Ziti with Asparagus, Smoked
Mozarella, and Prosciutto a
warm weather favorite.
Mary Flores Dedman's
Butter Crunch Wheels are an
easy to make candy that is a
delicious sweet treat to serve
guests or give as holiday
gifts.
In addition to the all of
the other recipes, "Tastes for
All Seasons" offers informa-
tion on the new food pyra-
mid, calorie counts, ways to
cut fat and sugar intake, and
other nutrition tips.
Contact the church office
at 246-6014 to purchase the
cookbook. The cost is $10.
To order by mail, send $10
and $2.95 for shipping and
handling per book to St.
John's Ladies Guild at P.O.
Drawer 330005 Atlantic
Beach, FL 32233.

The following are recipes
from "Tastes for All Seasons."

bowling when he was 3,
picked up baseball after his
family moved to Florida
from New Jersey when he
was 6. He has averaged 219
in a league and has a high
game of 298.
"Just missed my mark by
about two inches, and it cut
across the head pin. I left,
the 3-6," he said of his per-
fect game near-miss. But the
300 goal is still there. "Oh,
yes. Definitely. I really want
it." 1
Preckajlo was 14 when he
threw his 298. Brother
Edward owns three 300
games and an 800 series,
S"If I had to choose one to
go on into," Preckajlo said,
W"I would say baseball,

when the fall season, held
Saturday mornings, begins in

bowlers clinic Sept. 1.
Five of the youth bowlers
at Beach Bowl last are former
state champions. One is
Holly Borum, whose father,
Jim, was a men's singles state
champion in 2005. Holly
Borum won a state youth
championship in 2006.
The Florida State Youth
Championships, held over
four weekends in April, aver-
ages 2,500-3,000 partici-
pants. Solomon became its
director in 2006. He has
directed the tournament in
Winter Haven for two years.
S"I awarded $42,000 in '
scholarships this year alone
in that tournament," he
said.
Solomon emphasized
bowling is a sport for every-
one.
"We are a team event," he
said, "but kids bowl at their
own pace. We try to' keep it
fuin for therif; we rie'er let
bowling slip from being a
sport. If any kid doesn't treat
it as a sport, then we deal
with that because we're very
serious about it.


FOR THE KIDS


"We've had a lot of kids
bowl collegiately, a lot of
kids win a lot of scholarships
from our program. We're
proud of that."
Solomon said the Florida
State Youth Bowling
Association is centered
around scholarship.
"We work very hard for
it," he said. "The only tour-
nament that isn't scholar-
ship-motivated is their state
tournament. Its motivation
is fun and pride, to be state
champion. But the tourna-
ment I run, the Pepsi tourna-
ment, is all about scholar-
ship. It's the seventh-largest
youth bowling event in the
nation, and it's one of the
highest payout events."
Bowler retention is anoth-
er bright spot, he said..
"They stay with us as they
grow through their teen
years. We retain a lot of
them," he said. "We work
with their skill level as they
progress, we treat all the kids
the'same. W\e don't give-any_;.
preferential treatment to the
better bowlers.
"Once again, fun is the
bottom line. If we overcoach
a kid and it's no longer fun,
that's when we lose a kid."

Skin Care is read
Most trips to a nail and
skin salon end up on your
"regular" must-do list espe-
cially when you're in a pre- ,
vacation or pre-weekend
rush. But a trip to Le Cheval
Nail & Skin Care in Ponte
Vedra is never a must-do. It's
a can't-wait-to-do.
That's because from the
second you enter the door at
the upscale salon, the profes-
sionals at Le Cheval Nail &
Skin Care have one goal in
mind to help you unwind,
relax and have some quiet
time while enjoying their
personalized state-of-the art
services.
Le Cheval Nail & Skin Care
owner Kitty Vink started this
business with that goal in
mind. Kitty, who worked in
the skin and nail business in
San Francisco from 1989
until 2000, has always want-
ed her own salon so she Le Cheval Nail & Skin Care
could provide the calming eager to provide you the pan
environment and pampering
experience clients always seek
but rarely get.
"I always wanted to have my own salon and did in
San Francisco, as a partner with my sister," she said.
"Now I have one thanks to a birthday present from
my husband, George!"
As for the salon's name, Kitty and George selected Le
Cheval chevalal" is horse in French), because both of
them were born in the Year of the Dog, making them
both compatible with those born in the Year of the
Horse.
Kitty's background is in skin care, which has become
her specialty and her favorite service offering. "We're
pretty much the only shop in the Beaches area that
offers permanent eyelash extensions and permanent
coloring for eyelashes, eyebrows, eyeliners and lips," she
said. Kitty also specializes in facials, hair removal and
tattoo removal.
Nail services offered at the European-style salon
include full sets and fill-ins in Acrylic, Pink/Whites,
Solar P-W Gel Top, UV Gel and Powder Gel.
Pedicures at Le Cheval Nail & Skin Care are not the
"must-do" kind. They're the "can't-wait-to-do" kind
because they're luxurious and detailed. "All of our man-
icures take one hour minimum," Kitty said. "We don't
rush our clients because we want them to feel pampered j
and special." .. ..
Skin care services, which are just as indulging, include
European facials, freckle removal, eyelash extensions,
lip waxing and eyebrow waxing. Also offered are per-
manent beauty marks, eyebrows, top and bottom eye-
liner, and full lip color.
Manicure and pedicure services available include stan-
dard manicure, spa pedicure, manicure & spa pedicure,
color polish/change for nails and toes, French or
American style manicures & pedicures and O.P.I. special
pedicures.

owner Kitty Vink (I) pictured here with Lee, Janet and Lsa are
iperng experience you are looking for.

Also available at Le Cheval Nail & Skin Care are
Supersonic 730 treatments, which Kitty describes as one
of the most effective, highly recommended and state-of-
the-art systems in the esthetic and skin care industry.
Supersonic 730 uses an ultrasonic principle and a result-
ing vibration with a choice of one million or three
million per second) to generate a deep skin penetration
effect. "This excites the dermal tissue and encourages
blood circulation and metabolism," Kitty said. "The
result is remarkable!"
According to Kitty, the Supersonic 730 promotes a
healthy complexion, improves skin firmness, assists in
removal of wrinkles, removes dirt trapped in pores,
lightens the dark pigmentation responsible for freckles
and other macules and removes pimples, acne and
other pustules. "It also facilitates infusion and penetra-
tion of skin care product through the skin and improves
skin function, resilience and cleansing," Kitty said.
The salon also offers Microdermabrasion, a non-inva-
sive procedure that partially or completely removes the
dead, outermost surface of the skin. The procedure is
used to remove sun-damaged skin and to remover or
lessen scars and dark spots on the skin.
Microdermabrasion, which is not very painful and
requires no anesthetic, is used to treat fine, wrinkles,
stretch marks and scars left from imoderate-to-sever
eacne.

Congratulations to our Winners

of the first Surf Contest!


1st Prize:
What surfing means to me
I first starting surfing over 30 years ago and can still
remember the first time I was able to stand up and cut
across the face of a wave. From that moment, I was
hooked for life. Now as a 40-year-old father of three, I
still love surfing and I have already introduced my fam-
ily to the sport. My oldest son is 4'/, and loves the ocean.
He has been riding a boogie board on his own since he
was 2.,. I recently bought him a 5'0" soft board which
he is learning to paddle around on and make his way
through the waves on his own. He has the balance to
stand up on his own outside beyond the break and.
hopefully, will be getting up on a wave by the end of
summer. I am working on his younger twin brother
and sister, although they are not the fearless kind like
my oldest when it comes to the ocean. And on a recent
trip to Costa Rica with my wife, she took a surf les-
son and loved it and now wants me to buy her a long
soft board. Surfing means family fun to me.

Goal of wrestling camp is to help sport grow


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER
With the sport of wrestling experiencing a
slight gain in popularity over the past few
years, Fletcher High School wrestling coach
Roy Fallon took an opportunity to help
increase the area's exposure to the sport.
Enter Chuck Almeida, a 25-year wrestling
and strength coach in South Florida high
schools, who brought in
some Miami-area champi-
ons and the "South Florida
Influence" Wrestling
Camp in Jacksonville was We brought
born.
The camp, which took guys fror
place at Fletcher July 20- Florida to
21, focused on takedowns,
turn and pins, wrestling- kids some

ee's perspective, mally WOI

As a coach, Almeida
mentored 17 individual
state champions and two state champi-
onship teams. He is also a member of the
Florida Wrestling Hall of Fame and the
National Wrestling Officials Hall of Fame.
Almeida invited former student Moses
Rivera, who was an undefeated state cham-
pion from Miami and a four-year letterman
at Southern Illinois, to teach at the camp.
Rivera is the head wrestling coach at


Miami Sunset High School, where in his 17
years at the position he has produced four
state champions, including Nicholas
Moreira, who also helped out at the camp.
Moreira was the 2007 3A state champion in
the 119-pound class for Miami Sunset.
"We brought in a few guys from South
Florida to teach the kids some techniques
that they rtormally won't learn around
here," Fallon said. "Any coach can coach the
kids until they turn blue,
but these guys are a big.

ere. Any While the camp taught
ah th techniques to students
coach the from Fletcher, others trav-
they turn eled to attend, including
some from Stanton High
these guys School and from as far as
Ip. Camden County, Ga. The
students had the opportu-
nity to learn wrestling
techniques from the
FaionB Miami-area personalities,
Faln many of whom have been
stling coach exposed to the sport much
longer than those in North
Florida, mainly based on
the fact that the sport is not offered any-
where else except at the high school level.
"They have a young program here,"
Moreira said. "The coaches are trying to
teach them things and most of the kids did
real good in everything so far. I think it's
important to expose this here because in
most counties in Florida they don't have
middle school wrestling, so it's hard for the


kids to get into it until after they reach high
school, which is sometimes too late."
Moreira added that kids down in Miami
can start wrestling before they reach grade
school.
"Not many areas other than South Florida
have middle school wrestling," Moreira said.
"Down south they have YMCA programs
where kids are like four years old and start
wrestling. They get to middle school and
start to toughen up and by the time they get
to high school they become state champi-
ons.
"The main thing is middle school
wrestling, that's what helps the most."
One youngster at the Fletcher camp was
looking to get an early start on his wrestling
career. Ricky Little, who is 11 years old and
entering the sixth grade at Fletcher Middle
School, has been wrestling since spring break
earlier this year.
"It's a fun sport," Little said. "This camp's
been a fun experience. Everyone is just real
nice here."
Moreira feels it is important to keep these
types of camps going, so more kids will have
the opportunity to start wrestling at an earli-
er age.
"If they have these camps more often, and
have more coverage on the sport, more kids
will start joining and more kids will start to
compete for the state," Moreira said.
"I started in middle school, which really
helped out. These kids don't start wrestling
live until they're in high school, which is
hard because you don't get much practice or
much game time before you wrestle. Down
south we have so many middle school and
feeder programs that everyone is so tough.
That will happen here soon if this keeps up."
Even Rivera agrees that in time, the North
Florida area can become competitive in the
sport too.
"It's a little more competitive down there

The Beaches Leader/ r


July 25, 2007


OPINION



Will Jags withstand heat of training camp?


Should summer camp for
our Jaguars be shortened
or not? As Wayne
Weaver's team opens grunt-
and-groan sessions this
Saturday, talk has been going
on that maybe two-a-day
drills should be cut down to
one.
The growing complaint is
that over-drilling on the field
under a sun that would fry
an egg is passe and that the
thing now is to ease up a bit.
In other words, quit for the
day while most of the players
still have some energy left.
If they took a poll among
Jaguars players, no doubt
they would agree. Training
camp under some coaches
has been compared to weeks
of fun and frolic on Devil's
Island. Other inmates will tell
you it's not that bad, it all
depends on the warden er,
coach.
What the preseason train-
ing camp sentence is on
other teams, we can't really
discuss. What Bill Parcells or
Tom Coughlin or Vince
Lombardi might have done
isn't the issue here. We know
that Coughlin has been
described like Jerome Kern's
old song about "Lift that
barge, tote that bale."
To give old Tom the benefit
of the doubt, word is he's let-
ting up on the New York
Giants this season. Players
with broken legs will definite-
ly have the rest of the day off
provided they have a nota-
rized excuse from a doctor.
Regardless of how tough
things will be here in
Jacksonville, the good news is
that coach Jack Del Rio has
lessened the load since arriv-
ing on the scene in 2004.
While that didn't seem to
make a tremendous differ-
ence in last year's 8-8 break
even campaign, perhaps this
season will be better.
If it still doesn't work,
maybe Del Rio can fire anoth-
er coach or two.
The important things on
the eve of training camp are:
1. Quarterback Daunte
Culpepper must be signed by
the Jaguars regardless of his


u r s







physical condition. Assorted
members of the media insist
upon it.
2. The receivers must be in
tune with Byron Leftwich,
the starting QB, and not
afflicted with dropsies. So
many potential touchdown
passes died en route last year.
They say Lord Byron is in
top physical shape this year
and therefore should lead the
team to the Super Bowl.
"They say" said that. We did-
n't.
Many have speculated that
Culpepper is just the man the
Jaguars need at quarterback.
Not among that "many" is
Leftwich. We haven't yet
heard what Chief of Staff
James Harris or Del Rio plans
to do with both Leftwich and
Culpepper if they're both in
Teal and Black.
Play them both at the same
time in a sort of I-formation?
Alternate the two like Florida


did with Chris Leak and Tim
Tebow? Have Leftwich throw
to Culpepper at hide-out
wide receiver, or vice versa?
Meanwhile, kind of strange
that most of Jacksonville's
draftees have signed already.
Where are the annual hold-
outs? Are the returning veter-
ans so questionable that this
year's draftees sense they can
play immediately if they get
to camp on time?
We are told that the biggest
news is that third-round pick
Mike Walker has inked a con-
tract. He should be a wel-
come addition to the receiv-
ing corps. With a four-year
deal and signing bonus in the
neighborhood of $730,000 (a
nice neighborhood to be
stranded in), Walker says he
is thrilled.
The former Central Florida
star should be. Pay us
730,000 clams just to show
up and we'll do hand-springs.
But, at the time of this
writing, there is one crisis in
Jaguar-land. Former Gators
safety Reggie Nelson has yet
to sing. That ruins the week
unless he is in clover by
Saturday.
This team cannot leave
Reggie unsigned. If money is
the issue, can't a coach be
fired to make up the differ-
ence?
Just hearing about these
contract terms and signing
bonuses makes one wonder
why players don't sign right
away. Even Wall Street does-
n't have that kind of dough,
except on paper.
Let's get on with camp.
Events of the past week -
from Barry Bonds to Michael
Vick to NBA refs on the take
- are wearing us down. The
sleep we've lost wondering
whether MLB Commissioner
Bud Selig will attend the
Bonds home run party is get-
ting unbearable.
The only bright report is
that the Atlanta Braves are
bringing Julio Franco out of
retirement. Just in time, we
hear, for his 75th birthday.
Maybe he'll help the Braves
make a late-season run at the
division-leading Mets. Well,
we can hope.

FISHING




GJKT was great; tarpon fishing is improving


Great weather last week
provided anglers with
the perfect backdrop
for another outstanding
Greater Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament. I can't wait to
hear some of the wild stories
that will emerge.
Congratulations to this


year's winners as well as the
hundreds of volunteers who
continue to make this tour-
nament a marquee event for
Jacksonville.
It's good to see the chum
hole producing kingfish
again. Many boats finished

the by-catch

boats discard.
Capt.
Bobby
Langston and WIMPY S
his guest Joe FISHING
Bishop
chummed a
little north of
Matanzas
Inlet last Monday morning
and caught a six-foot, five-
inch 125-pound tarpon that
stayed in the air more than
in the water. He turned on
his side after a 40-minute
battle.
Capt. Bobby and Joe tried
the same area on Tuesday
morning and within a few
minutes chummed up anoth-
er 100-pound beauty that hit
a live pogie on the surface.
This "big boy" was on the
release gaff in 55 minutes.
Capt. Kevin Faver and Ed
Persons chummed off the
Lighthouse at St. Augustine
and jumped several big tar-
pon before Ed got his circle
hook in a beauty and
brought him alongside in 15
minutes.
Capt Dennis Young, with
Larry Paine, took the "Sea
Dancer" to the Elton Bottom
last Monday. They filled their
coolers with 50 beeliners, a
mangrove, 27 triggerfish, two
amberjack and'an African
pompano.
On Sunday Capt. Dennis
with the Steve Washington
party, fished the B.R. bottom
for another 55 beeliners, 21
triggers, four amberjack, two
lane snapper, a yellowtaill and
16 sea bass.
Capt. David King, aboard
his "Crusty Crab" worked
one of his favorite spots in
the Ft. George Inlet last
Monday and caught 60 whit-
ing and five pompano. On
Wednesday morning he tried
Nassau Sound and had
another four dozen whiting,


L


four pompano and dozens
of jacks and blues.
Capt. David Sipler, with
his guest Chris Carpowicz,
brought home 10 speck-
led trout,
eight drum,
a pair of
flounder
and a red
bass.
Z'"t Anglers
on the
"Mayport
Princess"
enjoyed
outstanding
fishing over
the party
MJ ON grounds last
EADER week. On
one trip last
week they
accounted
for 18 amber-


jack, four snapper, a 25-
pound king, a 40-pound
barracuda and their limit
of big beeliners.
Johnny and Bobby
Taylor, and their friend
Freddy Bridges, teamed
up on a whiting trip last
week and found a good -
bite occurring off the cap-
tains house north of St.
Augustine. They started
Their drift in 25 feet of
water and instantly had
big whiting coming up.
They ended the morning
with over 100 whiting.
Larry "Fishman" Finch,
with friend George
Altevich, caught and
released 30 red bass while
fishing the Xtreme
Redfish Tournament.
"King Neptune" anglers
had great fishing last week.
The largest to come over the
rail was a 63-pound cobia
caught last Thursday.
Snapper, amberjack, grouper,
kingfish, beeliners and sea
bass lined the cleaning table
each afternoon.
Canal guide John Dyrssen,
with his friend Dwight
Hibbard, pickedsup their
limit of red bass last
Wednesday morning near the
Atlantic Blvd. Bridge.
On Friday, Al Piolet fished
with John near the Beach
Blvd. Bridge. They used live
shrimp to catch 11 flounder.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier, speckled trout, black
drum, flounder, Spanish and
whiting are coming over the
rail but not in great numbers.
There were several good days
on the Spanish. Most were
caught on the gotcha plug.
Don Miniard made the
catch of the week out of his
11-foot kayak. Last Tuesday,
after installing two rod hold-
ers, he put in at Mickler's
Pier. There were no pogies
around for bait so he used his
dead shrimp to catch several
whiting and blue runners he
used for bait.
Don put them out like he
was slow trolling and began
to paddle. He paddled only a
short distance before a big
tarpon took the whiting and
sailed into the air. It was
well-hooked and pulled Don
and the kayak around for
over an hour before rolling
on its side and being official-
ly released. What a great trip
for Don.
Good Fishin'.

WRESTLING:

Camp offers

techniques

for local

grapplers

(in Miami), but in a few years,
this area can be competitive
too," Rivera said.
"These camps are the types
of things they have to do here,
have some kind of camp here
and there with kids'from differ-
ent schools, where they're
taught different techniques
and collaborate with different
types of wrestling. This way,
they can improve from that
rather than just one school
with a few kids and they all
know the same technique.
That's how you build pro-
grams."
While the camp is a good
start to gain exposure for the
sport, Rivera believes the com-
munity also needs to become
more involved.
"The programs need to
finance the sport, too" Rivera
added. "They need to have
decent mats, and make sure
the community is behind them
and coming to the matches.
Get the community involved
so the kids in the area feel like
they're something important
and are being supported.
"They can always use more
support, but. this is ground
level right now, and it's some-
thing they need to continue
every year at he same time at
the same place, so more kids
will know about it and start to
show up."
Fletcher wrestler Nick
Dalcero would like to see more
kids attending the camp or
similar types of sessions in the
* future.
"The camp is used to not
only get everyone better, but to
make wrestling more known
around here," he said.
"Even at [Fletcher High], we
have a team, yet hardly anyone
knows we have a team. By
starting some kids out and get-
ting some kids started at a
younger age, we'll start to get
better."
While the camp is a start for
improvement in area wrestling,
for those from South Florida,
middle schools are where the
sport needs to be emphasized
in order to reach its full poten-
tial.
"One of the biggest reasons
South Florida is strong is we
have middle school wrestling
and club wrestling like the
YMCA where the kids start at a
much younger age," Rivera
said. "They get to travel up the
line with more experience by
the time they get to high.
school."
