A mother of three Monday asked the Ponte
Vedra Municipal Service District (MSD) for
help with the "chaos" during school bus pick-
up outside Christ Episcopal Church,
"I'm really seriously, seriously afraid that
there's going to be a serious accident," Virginia
Simpson told MSD trustees at their meeting at
the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.
"It's just chaos."
Deputy John Tedder, who helps during bus
pickup two days per week, agreed.
"It's mayhem," he told trustees.
A school bus picks up perhaps dozens of
Landrum Middle School students at Golf View
Circle and Solana Road about 8:45 a.m., the
same time drivers are dropping off preschool-
ers at Christ Church, Simpson explained.
Christ Church sits on the north side of
Solana Road between Golf View Circle and San
Juan Drive.


Drivers carrying preschoolers use either Golf
View or Solana to access two drop-off areas,
and cars leaving both of those areas spill back
onto Solana near the Golf View intersection,
where Landrum students wait for the bus.
Add to that normal traffic using Solana
Road, as well as traffic trying to park at Christ
Church, where a parking garage and two-story
parish center are being built, Simpson said.
Because of the construction, vehicles can get
to Christ Church parking via Golf View only,
because the San Juan Drive entrance is blocked
off, she noted.
Residents have often complained that driv-
ers go above the 25 mph speed limit on Solana,
which has no stop sign at Golf View Circle.
Although a crosswalk is painted on Solana at
Golf View, "people don't want to yield to the
kids," Tedder said, adding that he stops vehi-
cles for speeding even when his emergency
lights are on, indicating police presence.

PV high said to be

like private school

By GRAY ROHRER
STAFF WRITER
The principal of the new high school that will be zoned
for Ponte Vedra teens told members of the Palm Valley
Community Association Monday that the school will be on
par with private schools.
Craig Speziale said the school, being built near Davis Park
west of the Intracoastal Waterway, will be "the closest thing
to a private school run by public money as you will ever
see."
Speziale, who has been speaking at Ponte Vedra gather-
ings since shortly after his arrival in July, said he has hired
a maintenance .coordinator for the school, dubbed High
School CCC.
Speziale said he will begin interviewing athletic directors
next week. The process of hiring the assistant principal will
likely begin in November, he said.
Some audience members at the meeting, held at the Palm
Valley Community Center on Canal Boulevard, were most
interested in the naming of the new school.
Speziale said that the naming process will be discussed at
a town hall meeting scheduled 7 p.m. Sept. 19 at Landrum
Middle School.
After that meeting, an online poll will be created, asking
for input from students, parents, and community leaders
on a number of subjects related to the school, including the
name, Speziale said.
Also, a committee of parents, teachers, students and com-
munity members to give recommendations for names to
the School Board, which has the final say.

While Atlantic Beach Commissioner Jamie Fletcher may
have a strong opiriion against the war in Iraq, a Beaches
business seemed to have a strong opinion about him. This
sign was posted Tuesday outside of Angle's Subs to com-
memorate 9/11. Fletcher recently voted against supporting
the Sea and Sky Spectacular event, which is held at the
Beaches every other year and typically features the Blue
Angels, a Navy precision flying team, because he said he is
"morally and politically opposed to the war in Iraq."

Some confusion over flag

flying on Patriots Day

Fire station crews throughout Jacksonville, which
includes those manning the fire station in Atlantic
Beach, were supposed to lower their flags to half mast in
honor of Sept. 11, according to a Jacksonville Fire and
Rescue Department Press Release.
However, the Atlantic Beach Fire Department, which is
operated by Jacksonville under a contract arrangement,
was not notified, according to Public Safety Director
David Thompson.
But, even if they did receive notice, Thompson said
that the department follows federal standards and unless
crews received a federal designation to lower the flag,
they would not have lowered the flag, despite the pro-
nouncements from downtown Jacksonville.

Criminals go 'where shopping is good'

- CARJACKING, from A-1


$30,500 bond.
Domenique Walker, who turns 20
Sept. 16 and who has the same
address as Pew, was charged with
principal to carjacking, according to
a report. She was released Monday
from the St. Johns County jail after
posting $5,000 bond.
St. Johns County Sgt. Chuck
Mulligan said the crime, which hap-
pened steps from the ocean among
multimillion dollar homes, should
remind residents that "we all need
to be aware of our surroundings all
the time."
"It doesn't matter where you
live," Mulligan said Tuesday, "... if
a criminal wants to commit a crime,
they're going to manipulate the sys-
tem in any way they can.
"Criminals drive to where the
shopping's good."
The incident began about 4:20
p.m. Sunday when the victim was
driving with his son on Ponte Vedra
Boulevard southbound, toward their
home near Mickler beach access,
deputies said.
About the same time, a couple in
a silver Dodge Neon also were driv-
ing on Ponte Vedra Boulevard and
the man "kept telling [the woman] .
.. that he was 'About to get her a car


for her birthday,' according to a
report by Deputy Brian Alli.
The couple got lost and "were try-
ing to ask someone for directions
when she saw a blue Mercedes Benz
. . and said let's stop that one,"
according to the report.
The woman said she tried to get
the driver's attention but when the
Mercedes would not stop, "she
drove around the car and stopped in
front of it," the report said.
Mulligan said such a tactic is often
used by carjackers to get a driver to
stop.
The victim told deputies the man
in the Dodge "came to his driver
side window and pointed a silver
handgun at him and his 10-year-old
son and told them to get [out] of the
car," Alli's report said.
After the assailant drove off in the
Mercedes, apparently followed by
the Dodge, the victim used a cell
phone to call 911 at 4:24 p.m.,
Mulligan said.
Another deputy saw the Mercedes
and the Dodge northbound on State
Road A1A, the report said.
Both cars turned into a service sta-
tion at 220 State Road A1A in Ponte
Vedra Beach and parked, then the
Mercedes sped south on A1A with


Deputy Christopher Alexander in
pursuit, the report said.
The Mercedes made a right turn
while speeding and crashed into a
ditch a few hundred feet south of
the service station, deputies said.
The driver, ran south on A1A then
into some woods, where Alexander
"deployed his taser" into the man's
Back, the report said.
The man was secured by
Alexander at 4:35 p.m., Mulligan
said.
Two other deputies secured the
woman driver of the Dodge, the
report said.
A crime scene technician search-
ing the Mercedes "found a loaded
silver handgun with a bullet in the
chamber" and some of the serial
numbers filed off, the report said.
Pew told police he works for a
moving company in Jacksonville,
and Walker said she works at a day
care in Orange Park, Mulligan said.
Neither had been arrested before
in either St. Johns or Duval coun-
ties.
Mulligan said that if Pew is con-
victed, "he's going to prison for 10
years" because of the state's 10-20-
life sentencing applied when a gun
is used in a crime.


Man arrested in JB homicide


FROM STAFF
A man who Jacksonville Beach
police considered a suspect in the
June death of a St. Augustine man
has been formally charged in the
killing.
Michael Dean Small, 48, a tran-
sient, was arrested Thursday and
charged with the murder of Scott
Eugene Hofmann, who was found
dead June 12, police reported. The
victim was found face down in the
alley behind Dick's Wings in the
400 block of 4th Street North.
Police said the victim's hands were
tied behind his back with a T-shirt.
Small was identified as a person
of interest in the case after Neptune
Beach police connected the similar-
ities of the case to a November
2006 arrest for sexual, battery and


false imprisonment, police said. In
that case, police said the defendant
also bound his victim's hands.
On the day that Hofmann's body
was found, Small was arrested later
at the intersection of Atlantic
Boulevard and 3rd Street. He was
arrested then for failing to register
as a sex offender, police reported.
A witness told police she heard a
commotion in the alleyway in the
early morning hours before
Hofmann was found, but, she said,
she did not call police as fighting
was often heard in the area after
the bars close.
Police spokesman Sgt. Tom
Bingham said that a DNA analysis
led to last week's arrest and charges
in connection' with the strangula-
tion of Hofmann.


Two arrested after beer theft

OPINION


OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH

A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY

NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES


September 12, 2007


www.beachesleader.com Locally Owned and Operated Serving the Beaches since 1963 THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER


Letters to the editor:


The Leader's Opinion


Beaches event should be here

It was inevitable, wasn't it?
Years ago, the Beaches community had its very own
Beaches Chamber of Commerce. Staffed by Beaches people
in a Beaches location, it served to promote Beaches busi-
nesses at the Beaches.
Then, Beaches businesses were convinced they should give
up their independent chamber and merge into the giant
Jacksonville Chamber.
Bigger = better was the argument. A few argued against the
merger, maintaining that the Beaches would lose their voice
and their unique identity. Unfortunately, those arguments
did not hold sway.
So, now we have the Beaches Division of the Jacksonville
Chamber of Commerce. A two-man office at Jacksonville
Beach is under the direct supervision of the Jacksonville
Chamber of Commerce.
On Monday, November 19, the Annual Beaches Trade
Show will be held. Contrary to what the name of the event
might imply, however, the event will not be held at the
Beaches.
Instead, the show will be presented at UNF's University
Center, located off Butler Boulevard at Keman Boulevard.
When the Beaches chamber packed up its independence
years ago and merged with Jacksonville some observers
feared it might come to this.
So inevitable? Unfortunately, yes.
But you can't really place all the blame on the chamber.
Chamber officials tried, and failed, to find a venue capable of
accommodating the 9,000 square feet of displays.
Last year's host, Sea Turtle, is under renovation to become
a new, upscale hotel. The area's other large hotel, Marriott at
Sawgrass, declined, chamber officials said, preferring instead
to host an event that would put heads in beds.
The lack of a large meeting space here is regrettable and
has been since the Flag Pavilion was razed in the 90s. The
new Jacksonville Beach Community Center, set to open soon
in South Jacksonville Beach, will help some, but not with big
events.
It's worth remembering that Beaches business interests are
tethered to the Beaches community and its continued vital-
ity. Holding a Beaches event miles inland is contrary to the
long-term best interests of both this community and the
businesses that depend on its continued independence.
Beaches business should be done at the Beaches.



Letters to the editor:


'Soldier says Fletcher's comments

were disrespectful and out of line


To the editor:
Let me first preface this letter
a withthe fact that I have lived at
theg Beaches: ;a 'of -my 'life; '
attended Beaches schools, and"'
grew up thoroughly enjoying
the Sea & Sky show every year
that the Beaches hosted the
event. I am now currently serv-
ing in the United States Army
and have been for going on two
years now. Although I no longer
live at the Beach, receiving the
Beaches Leader when it comes is
something I look forward to so I.
can see what's going on back
home.
The last issue I received was
the August 29 edition that con-
tained the article about
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher's
vote against the Sea & Sky being
hosted at the Beach due to the
fact that he is "morally and
politically opposed to the war in
Iraq" and since the Sea & Sky
show "involves the military" he
would not support it. Now I am
not here to bash Mr. Fletcher's
views regarding Operation Iraqi
Freedom and Operation
Enduring Freedom. Nor am I
here to stand on a soapbox and
preach about all the amazing
things my brothers and sisters
in arms are doing in both Iraq
and Afghanistan. I took an oath
to defend the Constitution of


the United States against all
enemies foreign and domestic,
which includes i-Mr. ,iFletchar's
-fredoms as w\ ell as his righttfo
voice his'optrnon. I believe it is
these differences in opinion
that make are country great,
and is a right we Americans take
for granted.
Having said that, Mr. Fletcher
was out of line when he said he
would not support the Sea &
Sky show because it "involved
the military." When I read that
comment it felt like I had been
spit on for wearing the uniform.
I was reminded of the way
many Americans viewed the
military during the Vietnam
War. It really does not matter to
me whether or not Mr. Fletcher
supports the cause that my
brothers and sisters in arms are
fighting for. What does matter is
his utter lack of respect and sup-
port for the men and women of
this country who wear the uni-
form and stand in the gap
between evil and our way of life.
I ask that Mr. Fletcher remain
faithful to the duties of his
office, in the same way that our
servicemen remain faithful to
theirs, and make decisions that
will benefit the community.

Overpass was

promised to us

Sin the Jax plan


Martin's late father 'still in command'


here's a very good rea-
son why four brothers
from Jacksonville Beach
graduated from the U.S.
Military Academy at West
Point and then went on to
become career Army officers.
His name was Ephraim
Martin III, a veteran of three
wars and a member of two
different branches of the U.S.
military.
"The reason we are all in
the Army is because of our
dad," Col. Ted Martin of the
Army's 4th Infantry Division
said last week in a phone
interview from Fort Irwin,
Calif.
"He's the driving force for
why we serve. I try to pattern
my life after his."
Ted Martin is the third son
of Joan Martin of Jacksonville
Beach and the late Ephraim
Martin III.
A 1979 Fletcher High
School graduate, he is a
brigade commander based in
Fort Hood, Texas, preparing
for his third tour of duty in
Iraq.
His younger brother, Cok
Andy tMartiff, his been i
Baghdad since June, serving
on the staff of Gen. David
Petraeus, the commander of
U.S. Forces in Iraq.
Ted Martin's older brother,
Paul, is an Army colonel sta-
tioned at the Pentagon. His
oldest brother, Ephraim IV, is
a retired Army colonel now
working for a defense con-
tractor.
Three of the four Martin
brothers graduated from
Fletcher, including Andy
(Class of 1981), a former two-
time state swimming champi-
on.
All four have risen to the
rank of colonel, outranking
their late father by one pay
grade.
Lt. Col. Ephraim Martin III
retired from the Army in 1969
after a tour of duty in
Vietnam as an Army helicop-
ter pilot.
In Vietnam, he' flew

unarmed scout helicopters
with the 1st Cavalry Division.
He also flew for the Army in
the Korean War and served as
an aviation machinist's mate
in the Navy during World
War II.
When he left for Vietnam
in 1965, Ephraim Martin III
moved his wife, Joan, and
sons to Jacksonville Beach.
Joan Martin has never left.
She has been a Jacksonville
Beach resident for the past 42
years.
"My mom wonders if
today's soldiers are a tougb
as when my dad iwas in "thl
service," Col. Ted Martin said
last week during an interview
arranged by the Department
of Defense.
"I can tell you that the
morale of my soldiers is
extremely high."
Col. Martin commands
more than 4,000 troops
bound for Iraq later this year.
The projected 15-month
deployment will be Martin's
third since the war began in
2003.
During his first tour, Martin
commanded a cavalry
squadron in north-central
Iraq. In 2005, Martin was part
of a joint task force sent to
Iraq to help defeat deadly
Improvised Explosive
Devices, or IEDs, the biggest
killer of U.S. troops.
This time, he's in charge of
what he refers to as the
"Armageddon brigade," a


heavy brigade combat team
that includes troops and
tanks.
He supports the recent
"surge" in troops overseas
and says American soldiers
are getting in the enemy's
"grill." But he also recognizes
that the political situation in
Iraq must change before the
region can be stabilized.
"The warring factions have
to come to the table," said
Martin.
"We have checked the
enemy at every turn. More
than 75 percent of IED attacks
are ineffective. We don't pub-
lish the amount of enemy
we're killing. All the
American public hears about
is our causality count."
Martin said his troops will
have the latest in weaponry
and body armor when they
deploy in December. He said
the soldiers of 1st Brigade, 4th
Infantry Division, will also be
schooled in interpersonal
relations.
"We've been bombarded
with negotiation skills [while
,at Fort Irwin,, home, of the
'Arytiff 'National jTraining
hnte.'Thk& so&ler hms 1',rist
bands with basic Iraq phrases.
"We're going in to talk to
the population so they can
turn information [about the
enemy] over to us."
When Martin gets to Iraq,
he said his brigade's mission
will be to secure the Iraq pop-
ulation in his sector.
This will be the third tour
of duty for 1st Brigade. The
unit was part of the initial
offensive in 2003 and was
responsible for the capture of
Saddam Hussein.
"I feel honored to be on
that same team," said Martin,
a 1983 West Point graduate
and father of four.
A 24-year Army veteran,
Martin, 46, said he and his
brothers may have passed
their late father in rank, but
not, he added, in stature.
"He's still in command,"
Martin said.

the opinion written by Carroll

lication dated Sept. 7.
In reference to the dim light.
issue we have currently in
Section H. I have contacted all
of the officials in Atlantic Beach,
and received a response from
one commissioner, Mr. Waters
and the city manager. No other
representative contacted me nor
did the-mayor, who was con-
tacted several times via email.
I then contacted Mayor
Peyton because Atlantic Beach
passed the buck to JEA to see
who could help us with the dim


light issue, Mayor Peyton wrote
me back and also contacted the
representative at JEA for me.
JEA told me that there was not
much we could do, the lights we
have are energy efficient lights
and it would cost a great sum of
money to upgrade the lights to
brighter lights, which Atlantic
Beach and JEA are not willing to
work together to achieve. -
I feel like they are leaving it
completely up to us the citizens
to figure this out and as we all
know that just means we will
get no where. It seems we have
no support once again for the
crime issue in Atlantic Beach
and I completely agree that hav-


ing brighter lights will deter
criminal activity.
. I can not see across the street
from my house at night when
standing on 'my front porch,
more or less from inside the
safety of my home. Our over-
worked police department can
only do what they can on
patrols and we, the homeown-
ers in Atlantic Beach, need to be
able to see what is going on in
our neighborhoods to report
the issues. This is not happen-
ing because we are allowing the
crime to continue under the
shadows of the night.

Military force protects all of us and merits our support


To the editor:
First, let me state that I am
proud of the 22 years I served in
the military and I don't owe
anyone an apology for that. I
was no hero, but I proudly
served my country so that [let-
ter writer K.] Davis and [Atlantic
Beach City Commissioner
Jamie] Fletcher could have the
right, to disparage our service
men and women.
Many man and women have
voluntarily gave the ultimate
sacrifice to protect this great.
nation and all its citizens,
including those who, as Davis


puts it, abhors militarism in any
form.
Let the majority of the patri-
otic citizens of this country,
thank God for, and pray for, the
tens of thousands of young men
and women who are voluntarily
placing themselves in harms
way, to combat, what is proba-
bly the most insidious threats
that America has ever faced.
Through their efforts and ulti-
mate sacrifice, hopefully K
Davis will not see Jacksonville
Beach invaded by those whose
unquestioned aim is destroy
this county and all that it stands


for. How this person could sug-
gest that we might be invaded
to the U.S. Military is beyond
my wildest comprehension.
I will sleep at night knowing
that Americans who think like
these do are in a small majority
and that my great grandchil-
dren and their children will
continue to enjoy the freedom
of the greatest county in the
world, protected by the greatest
military force we have ever had.

To the editor:
1. I voted for the better
Jacksonville plan and it includ-
ed the Kernan Overpass. Have
the rules of voting in our coun-
try been changed without my
knowledge? I somehow thought
if an issue was voted for and
passed the vote would be hon-
ored not scrapped, or re-voted
in another manner because
some parties did not like the
prevailing outcome.
2. The intersection at Kernan
and Atlantic Boulevard is a traf-
fic nightmare that needlessly
impedes west bound traffic. On
most days it is a headache to say
the least but in cases of emer-
gencies, including hurricane
evacuation, it may well be life
destroying.
3. Arguments against the
overpass decry the possible loss
of business to the stores in that
area. This is an incorrect, self
seeking, myopic viewpoint. I for
one will not be encouraged to
stop and shop because the over-
pass plan is scrapped nor will I
stop shopping when I want to if
an overpass is built.
4. We face undisputable prob-
lems in America because of our
dependence on foreign oil, glob-
al warming, and air pollution.
This issue concerns all of these!
Everyday thousands of cars
sit dead still at the Keman and
Atlantic intersection, needlessly
wasting vast quantities of gas,
polluting the air, adding to the
greenhouse gas effects and wast-
ing hours of citizen's time.
An overpass would allow
thousands of drivers everyday to
get to their desired destination
quickly and safely while saving
our nation's valuable resources,
improving air quality and pro-
tecting our health.

To the editor:
Atlantic Beach City
Commissioner Fletcher is cer-
tainly aware that the Sea &

a military themed show head-

is not the same as bringing

Football league has games, but no teams

The Ponte Vedra Athletic

Players aged 6 to 14 com-

The Junior Development
League is unique because
there are no set teams. Players
are put in divisions based on
weight, age, and skill level.
Everyone in the same divi-

the week, then coaches divide
the players into two teams on
Saturday to compete in a

MSD budget gets OK


FROM STAFF
Trustees of the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD) Monday gave prelimi-
nary OK to a budget for next
fiscal year that lowers the tax
rate by about 2 cents per
$1,000 in valuation.
By lowering the rate from
this year's .37 mills to .351
mills, trustees approved the
rollback rate the rate that is
expected to create as much rev-
enue as the current year.
For the year that begins Oct.
1, the MSD expects $586,350
in property tax revenue and
$20,000 in interest income.


The budget includes a 5 per-
cent increase for extra police
protection, which will be
moved from contingency
reserves because the increase
was requested after trustees
agreed to a lower tax rate.
Trustees also may be asked to
raise rates for extra garbage
pickup. Trustee Bob Reesh said
the most that would be
required under the garbage
contract would be 14 cents
more per month per house-
hold.
The final budget hearing is
scheduled 6 p.m. Sept. 17 at
the Ponte Vedra Beach library.

COLUMNIST


Parker was

roasted by

Post 129

This column recently
lauded a victorious
volunteer; namely,
Mary Ellen Bolin of
Jacksonville Beach
American Legion Post 129.
She was named top
American Legion"Auxiliary
volunteer in Florida.
That was sensational.
But wait-there's more.
Post 129 has another pre-
eminent vote-winning vol-
unteer, this one of the
male persuasion.
Long-time legionnaire
and former Post 129
Commander Earl Parker
has been elected to that
leadership position eight
times.
Moreover, he has twice
won election-as Fifth
District Commander (over-
seeing 129 and a number
of other North Florida
posts). His eight terms as
post commander allegedly
constitutes a state record.
In celebration of Parker's
noteworthy career as an
Amerik-can-ei-iOn leader,
F't 'Tt"h rei pal ty-o
Aug. 19. It was called the
"Earl Parker Appreciation
Dinner," and it definitely
was, but it was also a
humorous "roast" of this
popular member.
Funny anecdotes were
voiced as a microphone
was passed around in the
overflow crowd of friends
and admirers. There were,
too many to reiterate all
in this space, but one was
particularly amusing.
It involved a situation
(which Parker laughingly
agreed I should mention)
in which he lost his tem-
porarily-removed false
teeth.
The denture was eventu-
ally found, but, in the
meantime, he took quite a
bit of good-natured rib-
bing at the post. over his
misplaced choppers; e.g.,.
"Earl, this is a problem
we're sure you can get
your teeth into."
I recall having some
serious conversations with
him about possibilities of
replacement, and, at the
time, the predicament
obviously wasn't totally
hilarious.to him. However,
always smiling, he with-
stood the jokes, jests, and
banter without biting any-
one.
Parker went to Andrew
Jackson High School, grad-
uating in 1946. He worked
for the telephone compa-
ny here and was in the
Army for four-plus years
(activated National Guard
unit), spending two years
in Germany in the late
1960s, mostly doing tele-
phone work.
An exceptionally enjoy-
able part of his career as a
"phone fella" was the 15-
year period he spent doing
installations at Amelia
Island in Fernandina,
tootling around from job
to job in a provided golf
cart. He didn't say
whether he brought his
golf clubs along.
I wouldn't be astonished
if Parker agreed to run
again, a la Gen.
MacArthur: "Earl shall
return." Still, being volun-
teer commandeer of a
busy post such as 129 is
certainly no walk in the
park. Said Parker: "It was
the biggest challenge I've
ever had."
Well, as we used to say
in Advanced English class,
he done good!

Wayne King said he expects
the "interim" before his title
as principal of Landrum
Middle School will at some
point be removed.
Previously assistant princi-
pal at Switzerland Point
Middle School in Northwest
St. Johns County, King was
named Landrum's interim
principal Sept. 4, four days
after former Principal Pherbia
Engdahl told Superintendent
Joseph Joyner she was retir-
ing.
At the school's open house
Thursday, King was asked
how long he expects to carry
the label "interim."
"Not long," King responded
with a hint of a brogue that
came with him from his
native Ireland.
"The initial communica-
tion from Dr. Joyner Tuesday
to our faculty here was that
myself, in conjunction with,
[Vice Principal] Kelly
[Jacobson], we're building a
three- to five-year vision,"'
King said.
King stood in the main
hallway at the open house
with his wife, Katie, volun-
teer coordinator at Guaqa
Tolomato Matanzas National
Estuarine Research Reserve,
and their 6-1/2-month-old
son, Liam.
"Our seventh-grade science
curriculum is connected with
that," he said of the Guana
reserve south of Ponte Vedra
Beach.
"Even before I got here ...
Landrum seventh graders
really took advantage of
that."
In a video King made to
show to open house visitors,,
he said he listed his priorities
""laeTo y"tt ire to -Foir
days here and my weekend of
preparation."
"I'm going to make myself
available and solve issues,"
King said.
"We've got excellent teach-
ers, so I'm going to keep the
focus on that."

Becky Romero (left) whose daughter, Samantha, is in eighth grade at Landrum, talks with the middle school's interim principal,
Wayne King, at open house Thursday.


King said he sees similari-
ties between Switzerland
Point and Landrum in stu-
denit body size (1,250 at
Switzerland Point, about
1,140 at Landrum), demo-
graphics and performance on
standardized tests.
"Great schools," he said.
King said he learned a lot
from Switzerland Point
Principal Kyle Dresback about
'"jfiladi"g relationships.
"That's part of my goal," he
said, noting that under his
leadership, Landrum has a
connection to Nease High
School in Dresback's wife,
Aletha, who coordinates
Nease's International
Baccalaureate program.

Browne is drum major of 'The President's Own'


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
W hen Bill Browne
joined the Marine
Corps in 1989, his
father advised him to stay
under the radar of the drill
instructors and not volunteer
for anything.
But leaders like cream -
have a way of always rising to
the top.
Browne broke from the ranks
at boot camp and became a
squad leader, eventually finish-
ing basic training as the honor
graduate of his recruit compa-
ny at Parris Island.
Eighteen years later, Browne,
a Marine master sergeant and a
1985 Fletcher High School
graduate, is still climbing the
leadership ladder as the senior
enlisted member of the U.S.
Marine Band, also known as


"The President's Own."
As the 150-member group's
recently appointed drum
major, Browne directs the band
during ceremonial marches
and is in charge of managing
its overall appearance and mil-
itary decorum.
"When I joined the Marine
Corps, nobody in my family
knew about it," Browne
recalled last week in a phone
interview from the Marine
Barracks in Washington, D.C.
"'And my dad basically said
'Keep quiet and don't make
yourself a target.' But through
the pain of other [recruits]
messing up I had to step up."
In August, Browne became
only the 35th drum major of
"The President's Own,"
America's oldest professional
musical organization.
Founded in 1798 by an Act
of Congress, the U.S. Marine

the ceremonial mace and
wearing a sash known as the
baldric.


Band performs regularly at the
White House and each year
makes more than 500 public
appearances in the U.S.
A former lead trumpet player
at Fletcher, Browne, 40, attend-
ed Florida State University on a
music scholarship and per-
formed with the school's 400-
member Marching Chiefs.
Browne said he relished
marching and performing on
Saturday at FSU's Doak
Campbell Stadium, but, aca-
demically, he hit a sour note in
college.
"I did too much non-learn-
ing," Browne said with a
chuckle.
"Then I got interested in air
traffic control, so I decided to
join the Marines to do that. I
had all but enlisted when I
found out I was color blind."
Browne said he remembered
that there were bands in the


Marines, so he signed up to be
a musician, easily passing an
audition.
"The recruiter was -pretty
happy because in those days if
you recruited a musician it was
worth extra recruiting points,"
Browne recalled.
"But I didn't join the
Marines to be in The
President's Own. I joined to be
a standard fleet musician."
Browne spent 12 years in the
Corps as a trumpet player, per-
forming with Marine bands
based in California, North
Carolina and Naples, Italy.
Despite being one of the
"top two or three" trumpet
players in the fleet, Browne
said he would have never "pre-
sumed" that he was "good
enough to audition" with The

Hurst says food can serve as 'entertainment' at parties


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
Anyone interested in a
career in the culinary arts
needs to have "a passion" for
food, according to caterer
and personal chef David
Hurst.


Many Beaches residents
may be familiar with Hurst
who for nine years owned
The Market at Northshore in
Atlantic Beach with his wife,
Susan.
Prior to that time, he
worked at Crustaceans,

David Hurst grew up at the Beaches and serves many Beaches
clients through his catering and personal chef business,
"Tastes." He can be reached at 229-7837.


Ward's Landing, Ragtime and
First Street Grille. His current
business is simply named
"Taste."
Hurst grew up at the beach
and graduated from Fletcher
High. His interest in the culi-
nary arts date back to a job
he held in high school: dish-
washer.
With natural talent and
experience working for sever-
al years with local chefs,
Hurst advanced from wash-
ing dishes at Crustaceans to
becoming a chef at Ragtime
and then the opening chef at
First Street Grille.
At The Market at
Northshore, catering grew
into an important part of
Hurst's business. With his
new business, Hurst now has
the opportunity to focus on
catering and offer services to
customers on a regular basis
as a personal chef.


In his capacity as a person-
al chef, Hurst provides
clients with a variety of dish-
es prepared for them in their
kitchen. This has been popu-
lar with busy couples who
value the convenience of
having meals designed for
them that are ready and
waiting for them in their
own home.
Many of Hurst's former
customers from The Market
at Northshore have contin-
ued as his clients in his new
business, he said.
In the catering side of the
business, Hurst personally
works with each client to
develop the menu for the
event. He also does the shop-
ping, prepping, and then
preparation on site.
In recent years, Hurst said

Cont. from A-7
that he has noticed that
there is more interest in hav-
ing the food become the
entertainment for parties
hosted in a home.
There has always tended to
be a few people who would
gravitate to the kitchen, he
said. Now, more people seem
to enjoy watching how the
dishes are prepared and hav-
ing the chance to ask ques-
tions.-
Although preparing food is
his job, Hurst also regularly
makes dinner at home for
his wife and two sons.
Washing dishes, he said,
always goes along with cook-
ing, either professionally or
at home.
Susan Hurst describes her
husband as very creative,
someone who can "pull
ingredients out of the refrig-
erator and make it really
good."
Although he learned a lot
from cookbooks in the
beginning, Hurst enjoys
developing his own recipes.
Using whatever is freshest
at the market, where he will
sometimes shop for several
hours to find the right ingre-
dients, he creates recipes to
go with the theme of a party
or to suit the preferences of
his clients or family.
For a recent tropical
themed brunch hosted by a
Ponte Vedra couple, Hurst
prepared Grilled Pineapple
with Fried Pastry Cream and
Caramel Sauce.
While there are several
steps involved in making
this dessert, most home
cooks should be able to
duplicate Hurst's recipe with
delicious results.
Shrimp and Avocado
Mousse "Spoons" are colorful
little tastes of a great appe-
tizer.
For an interesting party
presentation, serve guests
"spoons" of freshly cooked
shrimp topped with creamy
mousse.
Maryland Crabcakes are
always a favorite. Serve these
as a first course or main
course, either way they are
excellent.

The following are three
recipes from David Hurst.


Grilled Pineapple with
Fried Pastry Cream and
Caramel Sauce

For the caramel sauce:
2 cans of sweetened con-
densed milk
Open cans and pour into a
glass pie plate. Cover with

Browne: Played trumpet at Fletcher


Continued from A-7
President's Own.
Browne said the historical
Marine Band is composed of
the finest musicians in the U.S.
military. Members are perma-
nently assigned to the band
and are exempt from all train-
ing, even boot camp. Each
must obtain top-secret security
clearance.
Auditions occur only in
anticipation of projected
vacancies, the band's website
says. Auditions are held in the
John Philip Sousa Band Hall in
the nation's capital, and are
conducted much like those of
major symphony orchestras.
"The men and women here
are just phenomenal," said
Browne, who joined The
President's Own as an assistant
drum major in January 2001.
"I wanted to be a drum
major because it's one of the
leadership positions in the
band. But it meant giving up
the trumpet, which I was great
at."
The trumpet had always
suited Browne's competitive
nature.
The instrument earned him
a scholarship to college and
later a spot on the Allied
Forces Band Naples, also
known as the NATO Band.
Browne put away the horn
when he became the assistant
drum major for the 1st Marine
Division Band at Camp
Pendelton, Calif.
When the assistant drum
major position came open
with The President's Own,
Browne was one of three can-
didates selected to be inter-
viewed.
"I just assumed that I was
nowhere near qualified,"
Browne recalled.
"After I came out of my
interview, which was longer
than it should have been, I
told the other guys,
'Congratulations to one of you
because that did not go well.' "
Browne got the coveted slot
and spent the next three years
under the tutelage of drum
major Thomas Kohl, a master
gunnery sergeant.
Drum majors often lead the
Marine Band in review for U.S.
Presidents, heads of state and
'international dignitaries.

Celebrating Patriot's Day Tuesday are mem-

Ocean Palms Elementary School, where
guests saw presentation of arms by the
Nease High School NJROTC color guard;
heard the class sing tunes such as "God
Bless America" and "Proud to be an
American," and listened to patriotic readings.
The program, "A Patriotic Tribute," was held
on the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 ter-
rorist attacks and was dedicated to Robert
Dolan. a Navy commander and friend of
Buckner, who died in the Pentagon on 9-11.

Band director Col. Michael H, Colburn Aug. 24 at the Marine
Barracks in Washington, D.C. Browne is the 35th drum major of
America's oldest professional musical organization.


with The President's Own,
Browne marched in the 2001
presidential inauguration
parade and carried the sousa-
phone at former President
Ronald Reagan's state funeral.
He also has led the Marine
Band at full-honors funerals at
Arlington National Cemetery
and later this month will lead
the band during a change-of-
command ceremony for -the
Joint Chiefs of Staff at the
Pentagon.
Since 1861, when President
Abraham Lincoln reorganized
the leadership structure in the
Marine Band, only 34 other
men have held the title of
drum major.
In June, Browne was pro-
moted to master sergeant, the


second highest enlisted rank
in the Marine Corps.
He hopes to finish his
Marine career as a master gun-
nery sergeant and as the drum
major of The President's Own.
"Everyone in the U.S.
Marine Band serves at the
pleasure of the band's direc-
tor," said Browne, 40, who
lives in Waldorf, Md., with his
wife, Shanna, and two chil-
dren, Kailey, 14, and Tanner,
10.
"Where I'm at right now has
a lot to do with my dad. Being
the drum major of The
,President's Own is just an
unbelievable position to have
attained. And if I can have six
or seven years in this job, I will
be very, very fortunate."


Trustees have suggestions for traffic 'chaos'

BUS STOP, from A-1


Trustees had several possible solu-
tions: have the speed limit lowered to 15
mph during bus-loading times; ask vol-
unteers to act as crossing guards, or ask
Christ Church to pay for a sheriff's pub-
lic service employee.
Joe Purvis, director of transportation
for the St. Johns County School District,
said Tuesday he will ask bus drivers for
their observations about the Golf View
bus stop.
"That church area, even though it has
traffic ... is a good place" for a bus stop,
Purvis said, noting that deputies and
other adults are typically in the area
during bus times and a bicycle rack at
the church allows youngsters to ride
bikes to the stop.


St. Johns County
Sheriff's Deputy
John Tedder
writes a warning
Tuesday morning
for a driver he
said was speeding
on Solana Road.
Tedder said he
stopped about five
speeders before 9
a.m. on Solana
just east of State
Road A1A.

Nease aerial assault shreds Martin County


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR

STUART We now have
the answer to a question that's
never been asked: What does
coach Craig Howard do when
his Nease offense appears slug-
gish and out of sync?
Answer: Take the Panthers'
no-huddle, hurry-up scheme
and increase the tempo even
more, a staccato attack of pin-
point crossing passes, short
out-routes, screen passes and
occasional long bombs that
leaves an opposing defense
gasping for air and wondering
what just blew through town.
That was the scenario last
Friday night as Nease traveled
some 240 miles south to white-
wash Martin...
County, 35-0.
After an ini-
tial delay
because stadi-
um lights
weren't work- .
ing due to a

Thursday, the
Panthers
appeared out

from the out-
set. Penalties,

missed 52-
yard field goal
attempt. T
Nease's e
offense was Panthers q
also plagued
by a lethargic start, its open-
ing possession ending with a
fumble.
"I thought we were out of
rhythm," Howard said. "I
thought maybe it was the long
trip or the lights situation.
There were penalties; it was
sloppy. It just wasn't Nease
football."
Shortly thereafter, however,
it was all Nease football.
Seemingly frustrated by a
series of penalties and confu-
sion by referees in marking
the ball that resulted in
numerous stoppages, Howard
pushed the throttle and quar-
terback Ted Stachitas respond-
ed, connecting on 18 of 21
first-half passes slants,
screens, outs and bombs as
Nease racked up three quick
touchdowns to make it 21-0 at
the half.
"With Ted and the quick
passing game it was boom,
boom, boom," Howard said.
"After a turnover on our first
series, we scored three times
in a row and suddenly it was
21-0. We were back in the sad-
dle again."
Stachitas, who played only a
bit over three quarters, com-
pleted 22 of 28 passes for 316
yards, including scoring strikes
of 5 yards to Andrew Barnes
and a beautiful 38-yard TD
toss to Mylen Wright.
Stachitas also had touchdown

i


runs of 1 and 8 yards in the
contest.
"We started getting the
rhythm going by speeding up
the offense even faster and the
receivers were really doing a
great job watching the ball,"
Stachitas said.
The senior QB said he can
tell when defenders are strug-
gling to keep up with the
Panthers' attack.
"We try to make them
throw up every game, so we
go as fast as we can. [Martin
County] had some two-way
players out there and you can
tell when they're winded," he
explained. "We know they're
tired so we take advantage of
that."
Stachitas also played a role
in Nease's fifth
touchdown of
N'. the night
when, after
scrambling out
of the pocket,
he fumbled
the ball into

ing depart-
-..--- ment, Barnes
had three car-
.. ..ries for 55
yards to lead
quarterback Nease (2-0).
Asked if the
Tigers' defense threw any
wrinkleshis..way,-Stachitas
shrugged.
"In the beginning they just
looked confused," he said.
"Then, their defense played a
basic Cover 3 and we know
how to take that apart."
Afterward, Tigers coach
Chuck Kenyon seemed as
awed and bewildered by
Nease's offense as his players.
"Anybody who knows any-
thing about football could see
it was just one breakdown
here, one breakdown there,"
said Kenyon. "But it was the
key person who needed to
make a play [for us] that was-
n't able to do it. We told our
guys what was coming at
them. It seemed like we would
have 10 people in the proper
position and that one person
wasn't in the proper position.
And that was the person we
needed to make the play.
"Thirty five-nothing. It is a
humbling experience. They
had phenomenal team speed
and they're just a class act
program."
Lost in all the Panthers' aer-
ial pyrotechnics was the fact
that the team's defense once
again turned in a stellar per-
formance against a ranked
opponent.

ning back Lyle Dankenbring

FISHING



Big pompano in the surf, red bass in the creeks


ough seas from the north-
east kept anglers inside
the jetties most of last
week. Red bass have gotten
hungry at Guana and up your
favorite creeks. Tarpon are
being taken in the cut on the
north side of Vilano Inlet. Big
pompano continue to offer
plenty of excitement for the
surf fishermen at Little Talbot
Island.
Capt. Kevin Faver found
plenty of tarpon action for his
guests last week in the Vilano
Inlet at St. Augustine. During
northeasters, of course, large
schools of mullet exit the inlets.
Tarpon follow them out and
give anglers a great opportunity
to hook one of these beauties.

tossed his live mullet into the
hot spot and hooked a 110-

a 30-minute battle. Capt. Kevin

caught two.
On Friday Pat O'Brien fished
the same spot with Capt. Kevin
and caught a six-foot tarpon on
a live mullet. He put the 100-
pound fish on his side in 45
minutes.
Larry "Fishman" Finch
reports the surf fishing at Little
Talbot Island was outstanding
over the weekend. On Saturday,
he caught 15 pompano and 25
whiting and on Sunday in the
same spot he caught 12 pom-
pano and 10 whiting. All of the
pompano were over three
pounds.
During a northeaster, the
Guana Dam area presents fine
fishing, most of the time. Last
week David King and Mike
Morris used live mullet on
Tuesday and Wednesday to
catch seven red bass apiece and
several trout.
Capt. Mike, on another trip
in the feeder creeks with Patty
and Mindy Evans, caught four
flounder, 35 red bass and
dozens of croakers and jacks.
Capt. George Bull on his
"Bionic Bull" fished the creek
emptying into Nassau Sound
and caught 38 red bass and lots
of jacks. George says the lip rip-
per with a live shrimp works
great on the reds.
Capt. George Strate only
managed to get offshore with
the "Mayport Princess" on
Monday. His party came of
with coolers filled with dozens
of beeliners and sea bass and
several eight-pound snapper
and grouper.

to bother the Jacksonville
Beach Pier anglers. Kyle Wise
caught a 22-pound kingfish,
David Showaher and Charlie
Schrauger each had a 26-inch
red they could keep. Other
anglers brought flounder, whit-
ing, drum and reds over the
rails consistently all last week.
Al Wiltshire, Steve Barber and
Derrick Kirby fished the river


just north of the Buckman
Bridge last Sunday on the
"Sharkey's Den II." They caught
their limit of yellowmouth
trout and several big croakers.
Jetty guide Fred Morrow and
his guests Charles Zomes and
Tri Vu caught a mixed bag of
fish last Friday in the river near
the Carrier Basin. They filled
their cooler with bluefish, sea
bass whiting, jacks, mangrove


snapper, angelfish and two reds
at 30 and 32 inches.
It's time to mark your calen-
dar for this year's American

OPINION



Titans have Jaguars number


once again


A nd they wonder why
they have to beg fans to
buy tickets.
Well, this was one Jaguars
"exhibition" in which the
front office can't blame the
fans, many of whom stayed in
the blistering heat almost to
the bitter end Sunday. Nor can
it blame this one on Byron
Leftwich. His fingerprints
might still be on the corpse,
but the great one was missing
from the scene, much, proba-
bly, to his laughing joy.
Anything can happen when
the Tennessee Titans come to
town, but nobody suspected
that while the Titans were set-
tling down here the Jaguars
were taking a rest.
Sunday's 13-10 defeat does-
n't tell half the story. The
Jaguars weren't just beaten by
their arch foes (the enemy
Jacksonville loves to hate),
they were humiliated.
"I still think we have a very
good team," coach Jack Del
Rio told the fed-up media in
their usual autopsy gathering
afterward, while the bodies
were still warm. Nobody
argued that point.
The Jaguars just haven't
found a team bad enough (reg-
ular season) they can beat with
the kind of effort they put
forth this week.
Why is it when the
Tennessee team comes to our
lovely city, somebody is always
out-coached?
Who gets the blame for
Sunday's disgrace? The
defense? The offense? Neither
played up to capabilities.
