Colors blaze as the sun sets Saturday in Ponte Vedra Beach. Steve Letro, meteorologist in charge of the Jacksonville office of the
National Weather Service, said the colors result from the sun's rays being refracted off some clouds and illuminating others. "The
clouds in the picture are mostly very high-level clouds which are composed of ice crystals," Letro said via e-mail after seeing the
above photograph. "The pinkish-purplish colors are simply a result of the sun's rays hitting those clouds at such an angle that the
light is 'bent' by the ice crystals into that color of the spectrum," he said. "The yellow colors are occurring because the sun is low
enough in the sky [from the photographer's vantage point that it is]. . illuminating those clouds from below, making them appear
yellow. They would not have appeared that color to people directly under them since from their point of reference, the sun would
have been striking from a different angle," Letro said.

Manuel and

that once the county

"I don't want [the
money] to be diverted

Although a study done
years ago of the 210 corri-

dor noted the road would
need to be four lanes east
of the bridge, the project
has stalled because the
county doesn't own
enough right-of-way to
accommodate four lanes.
The county's right-of-
way in the area extends 83
feet, but it needs 17 feet of
land along 210 to widen

Rates are going up next
month for electric utility cus-
tomers in Ponte Vedra Beach,
Jacksonville Beach and
Neptune Beach.
Beginning Nov. 1, Beaches
Energy Services will raise
monthly electric bills by 3.9
percent or $4.47 for a cus-
tomer who uses 1,000 kilowatt
The bulk power cost adjust-
ment is going up from
$.0.03669 to $0.04116. Last
year, the BPCA was reduced
four times. The rate reflects the
cost of buying electricity.
The increase offsets a rise in
power costs from the Florida
Municipal Power Agency,
according to utility officials.
For those who use 1,000 kilo-
watt hours, which now costs
$114.76, monthly bills will
soon go to $119.23.
In Atlantic Beach, JEA cus-
tomers saw an increase of 62

Candy cautions for
Halloween candy can be spooky for many
of the 3.1 million U.S. children with food
allergies as well as for their parents.
The growing popularity of allergen adviso-
ry labeling may compound the confusion
over which candies are safe and which
should be avoided.
"Many of the most common food aller-
gens are found in candy," said Anne Mufioz-
Furlong, founder and CEO of the Food
Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network
"For some children, just one bite of the
wrong food can bring on anaphylaxis a
severe allergic reaction that can cause death."
The eight foods that account for 90 per-
cent of all food-allergic reactions in the
United States are milk, eggs, peanuts, tree

kids with allergies
nuts, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish.
Of these, only the last two are not likely to
be found in candy.
Because allergen warnings on food labels
have become so common, consumers have
begun to ignore them in the belief that
they're not serious, which puts them at
increased risk for a reaction.
A study reported earlier this year in the
Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology
found that fewer parents are heeding the
warnings today than did several years ago.
Parents are urged not to ignore these warn-
ings on Halloween treats.

allergy network at (800) 929-4040 or at

a red-letter day
for those eagerly
awaiting the stone
crab season, which
runs through May 15.
The majority of Florida stone crab claws
are commercially harvested off the South
Florida coast from Fort Lauderdale to
Stone crabs are caught in traps, and only
the claws that meet a regulated size are
taken. The live stone crabs are then returned
to the water where they regenerate new
claws in about 18 months.
The claws are cooked immediately after

harvest and sold fresh-cooked or frozen.
Fresh-cooked claws can be stored for three to
four days packed in ice or in the coldest part
of the refrigerator.
To freeze, keep only the claws that are
completely intact and free from cracks in
the shell. The thick shell will protect the
meat for up to six months in a home-freez-
er. Thaw for 12 to 18 hours in the refrigera-
To eat, crack the shell using a crab cracker
or the back of a heavy spoon. Carefully
remove the cracked shell pieces (they can be
sharp), leaving the meat attached to the
moveable pincer.
The meat can also be picked from the
claws and used as an ingredient in other

Charles Edward Bennett (1910-2003) was a
Florida member of the U.S. House of
Representatives from 1949-1993. He spon-
sored, in 1954, the bill that added the words
In God We Trust to the nation's coins and
currency. Bennett was the longest-serving
Floridian in either house of Congress. The
Charles E. Bennett Federal Building is named
for him.
Philip Donald "Don" Estridge (1937-1985)
is known as "father of the IBM PC." By the
time he gave up leading IBM's PC division in
1985, it had 10,000 employees and annual.
revenue of $4.5 billion. He and his wife Mary
died, with several other IBM executives, in
the 1985 crash of Delta Flight 191 at Dallas-
Ft. Worth Airport.
Henry Morrison Flagler (1830-1913) was a
tycoon, real estate promoter, railroad devel-
oper and partner in Standard Oil. He also is
known as the father of Miami. Flagler bought
the Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Halifax
Railroad, the first in what would become the
Florida East Coast Railway. Flagler College is
named after him, as are Flagler County and
Flagler Beach, Fla.
Robert Lee "Bullet Bob" Hayes (1942-2002),
a two-sport athlete at Florida A&M, set a
world record in the 100-yard dash in 1962.
The next year, he broke his own record with
a time of 9.1. At the-1964 Summer Olympics,
Hayes won the 100 meters and tied the
world record with a time of 10.00. He played
with the Dallas Cowboys and, in 1971,
became the first athlete to win an Olympic
gold medal and a Super Bowl ring.
Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), the seventh
President of the United States, is the man for
whom Jacksonville was named. He com-
manded the American forces at the Battle of
New Orleans in 1815 and was the first mili-
tary governor of Florida in 1821. "Old

for her civic and political service. Jennings
was an organizer of the Duval County
Federation of Women's Clubs and was presi-
dent of the Florida Federation of Women's
Clubs. She was known as the "Mother of
Florida Forestry."
Henry John Klutho (1873-1964) helped in
the reconstruction of Jacksonville after the
"Great Fire of 1901" by designing many of
the buildings built after the blaze. After grow-
ing up in a small midwest town, he went to
St. Louis to study business. Shortly afterward,
he became interested in architecture and
moved to New York, where Frank Lloyd

Without added land,

community members, have
opposed putting 210 close to
Sawmill Lakes.
Joe Stephenson, Public
Works director for the county,
said Tuesday that 210 needs to
be widened, adding that a
four-lane road could be built
on 83 feet, but it would be
much more expensive.
"It is possible to build a four
lane road on 83 feet," he said.
"When you're doing road-
way construction, you're
always balancing land cost
with construction costs.
"The smaller the footprint,
the higher the cost,"
Stephenson said.
He added that without the
extra land, the road's drainage
system could not be built
alongside the road.
"It's not desirable, but it's
possible to put the drainage
under the road," he said.
Manuel said the proximity
of the drainage system to the
Guana is one reason for the
state's refusal to cede the

"My understanding was
that [the money] was intend-
ed to deal with the transporta-
tional needs of Ponte Vedra,"
Manuel said.
According to a traffic study,
traffic on 210 will increase
from 13,000 vehicles per day
this year, to 15,000 in 2009,
and rising to 31,000 in 2022.

Letters to the editor:
Something wrong with JB codes

To the editor:
It was refreshing to see that
the City's planning staff has rec-
ommended that Mango's out-
door seating request be granted
even though it was the very
same department who decided
to close the deck in the first
place. Indeed, over the past 12
years we, at Lynch's Irish Pub,
have had similar requests
denied and are encouraged that
Mango's stood up for what they
believed was right and were
determined enough to see it
through. The fact that they were
even put in that position in the
first place is ridiculous, howev-
er, it appears that certain Jax
Beach City officials have the
self-appointed authority to
grant permits, variances and
planning permission to those
whom they deem worthy and
can make other people jump
through hoops to get what they
are merely entitled to without
With reference to Mr. Bob
Moore's letter (10/19) I must
commend him on his vision on
what the future holds for our
beach community. Indeed, as a
community, we should encour-
age and permit local businesses
to expand in order to sustain
employment and to facilitate
patronage by locals and tourists
alike thus increasing tax rev-
enue. However, when individu-
als like David Smith, who is not
really as bad as what some peo-
ple may want you to believe
and, in my opinion, is merely
trying to protect his own inter-
ests, has to make public the
shortcomings of our planning
codes, then we really need to
turn our attention to what the
real underlying issues are and to
not look for a scapegoat. One
blatant flaw is that the Planning

department applies residential
codes to our business district
which is a certain recipe for dis-
aster. Is it that difficult to differ-
entiate between the two?
Again, and at the risk of
sounding bitter (which I am),
with Lynch's predicament we
have almost 5,500 sq. ft of land
behind the building which is
surrounded by private property
and therefore technically land-
locked but yet has been deemed
unusable by those forward
thinking planners in City Hall.
In 1995, the late, Desmond
Lynch, applied to build a beer
garden on this lot but came up
against stiff opposition from a
City official who owned proper-
ty less than a block away and
furthermore made it his person-
al mission to publicly campaign
against every Lynch's variance
from that date until the present
day. Moreover, one other thing
which has remained constant
with this situation is that the
Planning department are mas-
ters of moving the goalposts
when it comes to explaining
some of their more controver-
sial and mind-boggling deci-
sions and use terms like "bad-
luck" and "unfortunate" when
explaining why City codes and
standards are enforced sporadi-
Nevertheless, it is my hope
that some day logic prevails in
the way that planning codes are
drafted and that we can progress
in both a business and commu-
nity-friendly manner. Oh, and
Santa, I would also like a ten-
story parking garage just in time
for the Sea and Sky Spectacular
next week too....

Old Mayport will soon only be in our dreams

More letters to the editor:

Time for people of goodwill to come together in AB

To the editor:
Columnist Bill Gulliford is a
distinguished citizen of Atlantic
Beach, having among other
things served as its Mayor. What
a shame it is, then, that he
chose to write a column after
the recent election, which deni-
grated the citizens of the City
who voted for our new district
representation concept. The
new plan passed by a large
majority, yet Gulliford cannot
bring himself to respect the will
of his fellow citizens. Instead, he
stoops to calling the majority
"bleeding hearts", who wrote
"ranting and rambling letters to
the editor" of this newspaper.
Atlantic Beach is a communi-
ty deeply divided over the issue
of how widely its future devel-
opment should be regulated.
The division is reflected in the
recent results of the election for
two Commission seats. In both

races, which featured candi-
dates on opposing sides of the
development issue, the margin
of victory was less than 75
votes. Surely, then, the commu-
nity could now benefit from
people of good will coming
together to seek compromise
over the issue. However, the
supporters of district representa-
tion were largely from only one
camp of the development issue,
and not Gulliford's. Thus, his
attitude towards many of his
fellow citizens can only act to
divide us further.
Gulliford is president of the
organization known as Save
Atlantic Beach, which numbers
among its members many
developers, realtors, builders
and land investors. That group
endorsed, and strongly support-
ed, two candidates in the recent
elections. Thus, it clearly is a
Political Action Committee, as

defined by Florida law. Yet it is
now being reported that Save
Atlantic Beach has never regis-
tered as a PAC with the State of
Florida. If so, its intervention in
the elections was unlawful, and
perhaps criminal.
This writer.has mixed feelings
about the development issue in
Atlantic Beach. However, from
my perspective it is clearly the
tactics of the Save Atlantic
Beach crowd that are primarily
responsible for the antagonism
many of our citizens feel
towards others. Gulliford's
recent column is but another
example of those extreme tac-
tics. Small wonder that those
who want to minimize develop-
ment now call his organization
"Pave Atlantic Beach".

Planned Parenthood has share of abortion market

To the editor:
I refer to Ms. Steiger's letter
(published Oct. 17) in relation
to her organization, Planned
Parenthood..Ms. Steiger stressed
that we should "get the facts
straight before making judg-
ments," while at the same time
she assured readers that, "PP is
not about doing abortions." In
these circumstances, it is impor-
tant that we know the facts,
which are as follows"
*PP is responsible for termi-
nating the lives of more unborn
babies than any other organiza-
tion in the U.S. and possibly the

*PP has a market share of
around 10 percent of this huge
billion dollar plus industry and,
makes over $60 million profit
every year, a large percentage of
which is derived from abortion.
In addition, although national
abortion figures are decreasing,
PP's number of abortions and
market share is increasing.
*Abortion is PP's primary
pregnancy "service." While PP
offers prenatal care and infertili-
ty treatments, the number of
abortions is far greater.
*PP's so-called "comprehen-
sive sex education programs"
teach young people that abor-

tion is a viable alternative to
pregnancy and many other
ideas which the vast majority of
parents find objectionable.
*PP can be counted upon to
oppose any and all common
sense legislation to try to reduce
the numbers of abortions,
including laws ensuring
informed consent and parental
involvement in minors' abor-
tions. They even oppose health
standards for abortion clinics
and laws requiring abortion
record-keeping, while favoring
coverage in health care reform.

Bestlives argument is absurd and killing is wrong

To the editor:
In response to Ms. Steiger's
recent letter: Planned
Parenthood, you say is not
about doing abortions. Yet, it is
one of the places in Jacksonville
available for the heinous act of
abortion: causing death to a
helpless infant by extracting the
child from its mother's womb.
You say that "it's all about plan-
ning ahead, not abortion" yet
the- byproduct of Planned
Parenthood's participation and
others in the abortion industry
is the death of more than 40
million people since the legal-
ization of abortion in this coun-
You talk about empowering
men and women to make the

best decisions that are right for
them yet, you offer a horren-
dous cup to those who actually
submit themselves to the act of
"eliminating their problem".
The idea that a woman or man
can simply go forward with
their lives, unaffected by what
they have been a party to as if
they -had a tooth, extracted is
naive and unconscionable.
I find it extremely absurd that
you end your letter with the
phrase "creating our BEST lives
through informed choices".
Creation of one's best life is
never achieved by the choice for
death of another no matter
how small or young that person
is. Our prisons are full of peo-
ple who killed others to create

their BEST LIVES. Using your
logic, why were their crimes of
murder not okay? Finally, you
claim that Planned
Parenthood's services are devot-
ed to optimizing the strength of
"creating" a strong family unit -
real strength of a family unit is
achieved in the family working
together and helping one
another in times of struggle.
When Planned Parenthood
pedals such a "false solution" to
the crisis of life it is only fooling
some of the people some of the
time. Murder as a "solution" was
the one determined by Hitler
and other thugs in history for
"creating one's Best Life".

Susie said, "She had me scared

"I hate to be mean, but she's

someone say such a thing? Not
to mention that she had you
scared. Women like this fright-

thing that takes no more than

a life saver. It's irresponsible."
Having had my first one, I
don't see what all the hype is
about. The lump I was having

me nervous, not the test.

put me at ease. Besides her hav-

fer their lives be saved by a test
that has ultimately saved so
many others.
At the very least, start prac-
ticing self-exams. One of my
dear friends found her cancer
that way. Sometimes the mam-
mogram doesn't catch every-
thing. We have to be vigilant
and know our bodies. She is

now cancer free, four years.

that simple, it can save your
life. Make that appointment

Sea & Sky aims to balance safety and fun

Some limits
on access to
ocean during
Nov. 2-4 event

Jacksonville Beach police
are working with downtown
residents and business owners
to preserve public access
while providing security dur-
ing Sea and Sky Spectacular
Nov. 2-4.
Police Commander Gene
Paul Smith told those attend-
ing an organizational meeting
Thursday that the primary
goals for the event include
limiting the disruption to
businesses and homeowners
in the show perimeter, main-
taining traffic flow and keep-
ing an eye on public safety.
City staff, police and fire
personnel, Navy officials and
special events coordinators
from the city of Jacksonville
attended the public meeting
at City Hall to detail the
impact on those working or
living within the project area,
which is between Beach
Boulevard, A1A, 6th Avenue
North and the ocean. -
"Our challenge Post-911 is
we always have to be aware of

threats to the public as well as
to the event itself," he said of
the planning being done for
the event. "It is not necessari-
ly going to be Al-Quaeda
storming the beach. It could
be Virginia Tech. You can see
how much damage one per-
son can do."
Smith said law enforcement
officials have assumed an
"upgraded posture" to ensure
that things run smoothly dur-
ing the fourth air show to be
held at the Beaches. The
event is held every other year
at Jacksonville Beach and
draws thousands to the shore-
line. (On alternate years it is
held at NAS Jacksonville.)
Additional police officers
will be on duty during the
weekend and many shifts will
overlap to ensure that the
area is adequately staffed,
Smith said.
Fire and police officials will
also coordinate next week to
conduct emergency exercises
at the beach.
Paramedics will patrol the
crowd on bicycles to allow for
immediate access to a trauma
situation during the
Spectacular, Smith said.
"With crowds this size we
can't get one of the big red
trucks down there as quickly
as the bike teams," Smith
said. "The manpower is mas-

sive for something like this.
Everyone is playing their part
and pitching Smith said
events like the air show pres-
ent a challenge in a city venue
as opposed to a stadium set-

ting, He explained that there
.is no way to screen everything
coming in and out of the stag-
ing area in the city blocks.
"We have regular traffic,
businesses and residents all in

our show area. We can't put a
wall up and secure all of these
things," he said.
"We are understanding of
all of you who live and work
here. The goal is to make it as
smooth as possible."
Street closures will begin
Monday, Oct. 29 and will
progress slowly throughout
the week. Practice demonstra-
tions will be held Friday, Nov.
2 with the show on Nov. 3
and 4.
Officer Brett Burrell is
working with businesses in
the area to coordinate deliv-
ery schedules leading up to
the event. After Oct. 30,
deliveries will be limited to
certain times, Smith said.
"We are going to do our
best to accommodate you,"
Smith said.
Pablo Avenue will be desig-
nated the JTA transportation
hub. Visitors will be dropped
off'at the site from the park
and from ride locations estab-
lished at the TPC Sawgrass.
Passes will be distributed to
residents, business owners
and employees to ensure
access during the week. A
valid drivers license arid
check stub will be required for
employees to enter the
secured zone, Smith said.
"Everyone within the inner
perimeter must have a park-

ing pass," he said. "And
everyone is subject to search.
That will be clearly posted."
Police and Naval volunteers
will also be posted at the
beach walkovers and along
portions of the beach to keep
visitors out of the dunes.
The air show will not
include an amphibious
assault this year because of
damage to the dune system
during previous shows. Beach
walkovers will be considered
off limits during the show in
the event area. No vessel traf-
fic will be permitted in waters
that are within a mile of the
staging area.
Beachgoers will be able to
go on the sandy area of the
beachfront but going in the
ocean will not be permitted in
the staging area, Smith said.
Anyone in the ocean during
the event will be asked to
leave pursuant to FAA and
Coast Guard regulations.
"The sea oats were a big
issue the last three years. In
our experiences during the
beach landing, all 50,000 peo-
ple rushed the sand dunes.
Everyone wants to get up on
an elevated platform to see,"
Smith said.
"The Navy is providing 60
volunteers. That should tell
you what a big deal this is."

From New York to Ponte Vedra, artfully


An exhibit that hangs
through today at the
Coldwell Banker Walter,
Williams offices in Sawgrass
Village features the work of
20 artists, one of whom has

whose husband, Josiah, is a
Coldwell Banker Realtor, have
been used in the sets of "In

Andrews said she created
"Gladiolus," one of her works

4 roadways in Jax Beach near capacity

State mandated updates to
the city's 2010
Comprehensive Plan have
officially named four
Jacksonville Beach roadways
as constrained facilities,
meaning they can't handle
more traffic.
Beach Boulevard, A1A,
Penman Road and Ponte
Vedra Boulevard received the
designation because any addi-
tional traffic would exceed
established level of service
standards. All are currently
graded an E, one step above
"You can't dump traffic on
state roads and let them take
care of it," Steve Tocknell of
the city's consulting firm
Reynolds, Smith & Hills said
at an Oct. 17 meeting. "They
[the state] won't let you."
A constrained roadway is
defined as any road that can-
not feasibly handle any signif-
icant increase in capacity
because of environmental,
policy or physical reasons, he
City officials are prohibited
by state law to permit any
project that exceeds 110 per-
cent of the level of service
capacity and the four roads
main roads in the city are at
Options to squeeze more
capacity out of the roadways
are part of the plan, including
hardware updates in 2012
that will give motorists cur-
rent information on changing

road conditions, such as acci-
dents or lane closures.
"As a policy decision we
decreed we are not going to
make a -four-lane highway
into a six-lane highway," he
said. "We are suggesting inno-
vative approaches in ways
that do not add capacity."
Tocknell detailed the
updates to the transportation
element of the 2010 Comp
Plan at a public meeting
Wednesday at City Hall in
Jacksonville Beach.
"This is a good opportunity
for the community to take
stock of where it is and where
it is going and how things
might have 'changed,"
Tocknell said.
Since the last update was
completed in 1999;
Jacksonville Beach has experi-
enced a flurry of transporta-
tion changes from the influx
of high rise condominiums to
major road improvement
projects, he said.
"Every couple years it is
necessary to flush the old one
out and and create new
changes to reflect the current
status," Tocknell said.
The update also states that
there will be no need for any
more major projects to
increase road capacity in the
city once the widening of
Beach Boulevard is completed
and the realignment of
Penman Road finished.
Tocknell credited city offi-
cials for "understanding
where you are and where this
community wants to go."
The plan also monitors the

existing level of bicycle and
pedestrian traffic he number
of available long term parking
spaces and how well the city's
evacuation routes function,
he said.
Other changes include
replacing existing bus routes
with a trolley service and
implementing a ride request
service that will keep empty
buses from running up and
down the Beaches.
Future installation of new
hardware is planned to help
monitor traffic conditions
and relay information to
motorists in real time, he said.
"These are good ways to
squeeze more capacity out
without adding lanes,"
Tocknell said. "When roads
are constrained, we are limit-
ed in ways to increase capaci-
ty. These are viable options."
Grades are assigned to each
state road to identify their
specific service level.
Anything rated F is. consid-
ered a failed roadway.
"It is like spinning plates.
As long as nothing goes
wrong you are fine," Tocknell
said. "If they fall and cars are
not moving that is actually
below level of service F."
Tocknell said the future pro-
jections outlined in the comp
plan that show Beach
Boulevard operating as a con-
gested facility in 2008 are
incorrect because the ongoing
widening is expected to be
complete next year.

Justice for George Syvertsen

Former CBS correspondent

buried at Jax Beach cemetery

"As newsmen, we should
not be embarrassed to ask if a
news story is worth a human
life. The answer is no."

CBS News correspondent, who was killed May
31, 1970, while on assignment in Cambodia.

Syvertsen, a correspondent for CBS News
from 1966 to 1970, was 38 when he gunned
down by enemy forces in Cambodia.
That the veteran New York City-bred
reporter is buried in virtual anonymity, in a
nondescript plot in a city where he never
lived, raises questions about his legacy as a

hound who.put himself and others unwittingly
- but recklessly -in harm's way, leading to
the first Vietnam War-related deaths of CBS
crew members?
Or was he, as others believe, a thoughtful,
independent-minded journalist whose memory
has been unjustly besmirched because of his
decision to follow a story into a known hot
"Everyone has their own take on George,"
said former CBS News cameraman Skip Brown
in a phone interview.
Point man of convoy
In "Lost Over Laos," a 2003 book by
Associated Press reporter Richard Pyle that
recounts the careers of four combat photogra-
phers who were killed in 1971, Syvertsen's
death in eastern Cambodia and those of seven
other newsmen was called "the war's bloodiest
single incident involving journalists."

As the point man of a three-vehicle convoy
of newsmen, Syvertsen unwittingly led his col-
leagues, including rival NBC correspondent
Welles Hangen, into enemy territory 30 miles
south of the Cambodian capital of Phnom
Eight of the nine unarmed men were execut-
ed by the Viet Cong or Khmer Rouge rebels.
NBC's Cambodian driver managed to escape.
In "A Cambodian Odyssey," a self-published
book that recounts the ill-fated incident, co-
author and former CBS News correspondent
Jeff Williams, says, "With few exceptions, the
journalists who died in Cambodia were not
killed in the line of fire, a risk understood and
accepted by most correspondents. Instead they
were captured and brutally executed."
Syvertsen's bullet-ridden remains were
among the first to be recovered after the inci-
dent and returned to the U.S.
At his June 17, 1970, funeral in Jacksonville
Beach, CBS News personnel, including "CBS
Evening News" anchorman Walter Cronkite,
served as pall bearers.
Cronkite gave the eulogy.
"It is an irony of war that George Syvertsen
should have been its victim," Cronkite report-
edly said.
"While abhorring war, he went to it. He
went where the action was to help expose the
folly of all war. He will be sorely missed by us."
Scholarly corespondent
According to a June 4, 1970, news obit in
The New York Times, Syvertsen, a Brooklyn
native, spoke several languages, including

CBS in 1966.
Colleagues, such as former CBS News cam-
eraman Kurt Volkert, who co-wrote "A
Cambodian Odyssey" with Williams, remem-
ber Syvertsen's scholarly approach to reporting.
"George, despite what happened in
Cambodia that distant spring day, was an
unusual and gifted guy, a true intellectual with
a sense of adventure and an independent mind
who didn't suffer fools easily," Volkert, now
living in Germany, said in an e-mail.
"He was an excellent correspondent, com-
plex, sophisticated and very thoughtful, proba-
bly better suited for in-depth newspaper
reporting than TV."

called Syvertsen "one of the best and brightest
CBS News correspondents in Vietnam."
Laurence, a CBS News war correspondent
from 1965-70, also recalled Syvertsen saying,
"No 'sense getting killed for-'something that's
going to end iip 6on'thii uittiYg roonyIfl6o'"''
Syvertsen spent nearly a decade as a print
journalist before joining CBS, where he briefly
served as an associate producer for the "CBS

During the Vietnam era, Laurence said CBS
News was in a fierce battle with NBC News for
war coverage. The pressure to get compelling
battlefield footage was intense.
"CBS News management created a culture of
aggressive, even reckless coverage of the war,
especially the big battles," Laurence says in "A

Ties to the Beaches
In 1951, Syvertsen was in his second year of
college at Columbia when his Norweigen-born
parents, Olav and Ingrid Syvertsen, relocated
to Jacksonville Beach from New York City.
Olav Syvertsen was a dredge boat captain
who helped dredge parts of the St. Johns, River
and the Intracoastal Waterway, according to
George Syvertsen's nephew, Steven Hall of
Jacksonville Beach.
Hall's grandmother, Ingrid Syvertsen, a for-
mer chairperson of the New York City chapter
of the Girls Scouts of America, adored her old-
est son, who often visited his parents at their
8th Avenue North home.
"My grandmother was devastated when
George was killed," Hall recalled. "He was her
golden boy."
The elder Syvertsens, who migrated to the
U.S. from Norway in the early 1920s, also had
two daughters, Marie and Evelyn, and another
son, Clifford, all of whom are deceased.
In 1958, Evelyn Syvertsen was the valedicto-
rian of her class at Fletcher High School. By
then, her big brother had joined The AP in
New York, a job that would launch his overseas
Under fire in the field
In 1960, Syvertsen, who studied Russian as
an enlisted man in the mid-1950s at the
Army's Defense Language Institute, was
appointed AP's foreign correspondent in
In 1962, The AP posted Syvertsen in
Moscow, where he spent the next three years
covering more than a dozen trips abroad by
former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.
Syvertsen's first wife and their only child,
Eric, accompanied him overseas.
In a phone interview from his Missouri
home, Eric Syvertsen said his parents, both sec-

ond-generation Norwegians, met at a church
youth group while in high school and were
married at Trinity Lutheran Church in

Bravery unquestioned
George Syvertsen arrived in Vietnam in
November 1967 and his dispatches during the
Tet Offensive, including one at the embattled
Marine air base at Khe Sahn, were among the
best of his career, according to one CBS News
"During the Tet Offensive, in Danang, Hue,
Saigon and Cholon, George had displayed
great courage as well as sound judgment when
we were in the midst of some of the heaviest
fighting of the war," Volkert says in "A
Cambodian Odyssey."
"His bravery and concern for his crews were
nearly legendary among the cameramen who
had worked for him."
Skip Brown, who worked with Syvertsen two
days before his death, agreed.
"George had earned his stripes," Brown said
in a phone interview. "He was the first corre-
spondent I worked with in Saigon. My first
reaction to him was that he seemed taciturn
and stern. Over time, I realized he was just
very quiet and cerebral."
One time in Warsaw, Syvertsen, who had-a
private pilot's license, demonstrated steely
nerves during a spiral dive maneuver, also
known in flying vernacular as "the death spi-
"George mentioned that he was one of the
very few westerners who was allowed to fly in

Year of living dangerously
Journalists covering the secret U.S. military
"incursion" into Cambodia in 1970 increasing-
ly fell into enemy hands.
"By the summer of 1970, 25 journalists were
captured and ultimately killed. Of this number,
20 died in April and May," Williams says in "A
Cambodian Odyssey."

Beware: Halloween is on a school day

Halloween is a time of great
fun for children, but it can be a
little scary for parents and
drivers. Children are often out
after dark, crossing busy streets
and perhaps going to unfamil-
iar homes.
"This year Halloween falls
on a school day. With excited
kids frantically going from
neighbor to neighbor, drivers
need to be particularly cau-
tious," said Ray Palermo, direc-
tor of public information for
Teachers' Insurance Plan.
"However, by following some
simple advice, parents, chil-
dren, drivers and homeowners
can all have a safe, enjoyable

If children are out at night,
drivers need to be particularly
careful at dusk and when driv-
ing either over a hill or around
a curve, where visibility is lim-
ited. Use high beams to see
and be seen.
Trick-or-treaters should
always be accompanied by an
adult or travel in a group.
Children should be told not to
eat any unwrapped candy or
treats until they return home
where their parents can see
them. Making sure kids have
already eaten before heading
out may help.
Parents may want to limit
kids to local events run by

police stations, firehouses, sen-
ior citizen centers or local busi-
nesses, or organize their own
through their school.
Parents should incorporate
reflective tape in costumes or
add bright colors to increase
visibility. Make-up rather than
masks should be worn to help
ensure that children have an
unobstructed view of their sur-
Trick-or-treaters may be
caught up in the excitement of
the day and not be as careful as
they should. They should
always cross at corners and
look both ways before cross-
ing. Drivers need to keep a
careful eye on the road and on

the sidewalk, in. case anyone
darts out from between parked
Children should stay on the
sidewalk or if none is available,
walk facing the lane of traffic,
and they should carry a flash-
Homeowners should clear
their yards of anything that
can be tripped over and be sure
.to have a front door or walk-
way light on, and refrain from
decorations that use an open
flame that could ignite a
child's costume.

St. Johns district gets

OK for accreditation

A review team from the
Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools recom-
mended last week that the St.
Johns County School District
be awarded district accredita-
The organization's Quality
Assurance Review team also
gave the School District some
suggestions for improvement.
The review team's was
announced to the St. Johns
County School Board at a spe-
cial meeting Wednesday, after
the team spent several days
looking closely at the district.
District accreditation is the
highest level of accreditation a
school system can receive
from the organization, the rec-
ognized accrediting agency for
K-12 schools in the southern
United States. In the past all
St. Johns County schools were
individually accredited.
The review team noted the
School District's leadership,
focus on the strategic plan,
innovative academy programs,
commitment to building sup-
port services and resource pro-
grams for students, and the
high percentage of resources
allocated for instruction.
The team's report also high-
lighted four major strengths of
the district: open communica-
tion among the superintend-
ent, School Board members
and other governmental agen-
cies; employing 150 National
Board Certified teachers;
paperless applicant tracking
system that promotes hiring
high-quality personnel, and
support from groups of stake-
"These comments by the
review team are an external
affirmation of the wonderful
work of this school system,"
schools Superintendent Joseph
Joyner said in a news release.
"I want to thank all of the
individuals... School Board
members, principals, district
staff, teachers, parents and

community members... who
participated in this process.
"The behind-the-scenes
assistance from all of the sup-
port staff is just another exam-
ple of how our folks work
together as a team to accom-
plish something special."
Major accomplishments
noted by the team included
the payroll financial system,
the positive engagement of
the total community in the
educational process and the
establishment of an education
foundation to enhance
The team also suggested the
School District should:
Develop an online report
card across all grade levels;
Continue to focus on
improvement of all students
not meeting standards;
Expand technology sup-
port services;
Implement annual district
wide climate surveys, and
Start an adult education
A written report of the
team's findings and observa-
tions will be sent to Joyner
within 30 days. The district is
then expected to communi-
cate the information con-
tained in the report, initiate
steps to address the recom-
mendations, and continue its
efforts toward continuous
The School District spent
the past several months
preparing for districtwide
In order for the district to be
eligible to apply for. district
accreditation, every school in
the district had to be individu-
ally accredited and the district
had to have a strategic plan-
ning process focusing on
improving student learning.
In addition, districts must
meet accreditation .standards,
pursue a process of systematic
continuous improvement and
implement methods for quali-
ty assurance.

"The first play of the game,

who led Columbia to a Class
6A state runner-up finish in
"We told our kids in the lock-
er room that if the quarterback
plays, we know he can throw
and they will try to go deep.
"We knew they would sit
back there and max protect.
They got behind our guy and
scored and that put us behind
the 8-ball."
Nease dialed up the deep ball
fives times against the Tigers,
connecting twice when
Columbia was in single-high
safety mode.
Barker (2 receptions for 72
yards) beat Tigers' free safety
Darrel Underwood on the first
salvo, and Myles Wright got
behind Underwood for a 45-
yarder late in the third quarter.
"We knew all weekend we




were going to take a shot on
the first play," Nease head
coach and play-caller Craig
Howard said.
"We saw that on film. Their
safety bit on the play-action
too much and we knew we
could get him on that. It was a
true middle of the field post
with a lot of play action. It was
eight-man protection and only
two guys in the route."

Nease went into its backup
offense (super power) with 5:59
remaining. Hunter Bates drove
the Panthers 53 yards to the
Tigers 7 before taking a knee to
end the game.
On the drive, he rolled out
and hit Brett Russi for a 25-yard
"We gained more yards
tonight [in six minutes] with
[super power] than we did in
the whole game against St.
Augustine," added Howard,
whose team plays host to
Bartram Trail (5-3) Friday at
Panther Stadium.
"We almost scored on a pass
off of it. We didn't just go con-
servative when we went up 21-

ball in the second half."
Nease tailback Andrew
Barnes, who rushed for a game-
high 58 yards, including an 18-

half, left the field with a high-
ankle injury in the fourth quar-
Defensive lineman Ramon
Booi also hobbled off the field
late in the final stanza.
"It is what it is," said Cowgill,
whose unit logged its second
shutout of the season. "Now,
we have to get ready for
Bartram in a short week."

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


A win Saturday will help Tebow in Heisman race

i f the Florida Gators defeat
Georgia's Bulldogs on
Saturday, as many are pre-
dicting, quarterback Tim
Tebow is sure to be one of the
reasons if not the main
Then there will be an.even
hotter time in the old town
that night.
There usually is when the
Gators win this annual battle
with their favorite enemies
from the North. But it will be
even more of a celebration if
young Tebow, the former
Nease High star, can put
another scalp in his collection
on the road to the Heisman
Trophy award. Even if he
doesn't really strive'for college
football's top honor until next
year, his junior season, beat-
ing Georgia as a throwing and
running quarterback is sure to
make his report card impres-
sive to the voters.
While it's true that Tebow
was only co-pilot (with Chris
Leak) last season when the
Florida boys held on to beat
the Dogs, 21-14, he was on
the winning team and that's a
big plus. Winning begets win-
Heisman voters are
impressed with candidates
who have played not only on
winning teams, but in very
important traditional rivalry
Back in the preseason, media
swamis (who know everything,
of course) looked ahead and
predicted this year's Georgia-
Florida game would simply be

.. -- --- :-


a fine match between two sig-
nal-callers, Tebow and
Matthew Stafford, both sopho-
mores and very alike in many
ways from age to size, throw-
ing and running. Both can
scamper for their lives with a
talent coaches love.
Although it should still be a
nice exhibition in pitching
and dodging, the game will
also come down to which
team wins the dirty job in the
trenches; who does the best
job of blocking and tackling
and, not least of all, which
team can out-kick the other
and that means field goals and
punts to get out of nasty situa-
The Dogs know about kick-
ing. They were on vacation
last week but the week before
that they beat a tough
Vanderbilt squad (ask South
Carolina and Steve Spurrier

just how tough) on the
strength of Brandon Coutu's
piggies as time expired. A field
goal can be very lethal.
We come now to discussing
how important it is to have a
week off before the big game.
It's been a novelty for Georgia
to have an open week before
playing the Gators. For some
years, Florida has had a week's
breather while Georgia butted
heads. This time it's the other
way around. The Gators
warmed up by burning
Kentucky, 45-37.
Maybe having a week off, or
not having a week off before a
big rivalry game really makes
no difference. The Gators have
lashed the Dogs 15 out of the
past 17 years, starting in 1990,
the year of reformation so to
speak, when Spurrier returned
as head coach.
In 1997, when Georgia won,
37-17, the Gators were off the
week before (after trouncing
Auburn the previous week)
and in 2004 when the Dawgs
won, 31-24, Ron Zook coach-
ing Florida, UF had played
and beaten Missy State the
previous week.
Superior talent usually wins,
but not always. In games
Georgia has lost since the 1990
reformation, there have been a
few times the Dogs could have
(should have?) won. Back in
the days when Vince Dooley's
team defeated Gator squads
coached by Ray Graves, Doug
Dickey, Charley Pell and Galen
Hall, some games could have
gone either way.
Others, especially when

Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow leads his side into battle against the Georgia Bulldogs this
Saturday at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m.

Georgia had Herschel Walker,
the human tank moving
down the field, the Gators
couldn't have won with the
U.S. Marines backing them up.
The drought up in Georgia's
farmlands and lakes now is
nothing compared to the
drought the Dawgs suffered in

football against Florida when
Spurrier's team sported ace
quarterbacks Shane Matthews,
Doug Johnson, Dainy
Wuerffel and Rex.Grossman.
Those QBs helped lead
Spurrier's personal vendetta
against the Red and Black.
General Sherman burned.

Georgia in the War Between
the States. General Spurrier
stopped just short of that in
his revenge for humiliating.

most points. And you can
