Trustees of the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD) agreed this week to
spruce up landscaping at
Corona Road and State Road
The $22,000 project, howev-
er, was approved with one

caveat: That no more beautifi-
cation projects will get the
MSD's OK unless projects south
of Corona are considered first.
That idea was broached by
trustee Doug Crane, who lives
south of Corona Road and has
often mentioned the MSD
board's lack of attention to the
The MSD is a special taxing

district that generally includes
the area east of State Road A1A
from The Duval County line to
Corona Road, then south along
both sides of Ponte Vedra
Boulevard for six miles.
At Monday's MSD meeting,
trustee Gary Jurenovich said
that with the county's road
project complete, the Corona-
A1A corner needed sprucing

"That's a nice, key focal point
coming into the MSD,"
Jurenovich said.
Crane, however, said trustees
"might want to think about"
improvements to another focal
point of the MSD: The area at
Mickler Road, where north-
bound A1A and Ponte Vedra
Boulevard split.

That area, along with others
south of Corona Road, do not
benefit from MSD beautifica-
tion funds, Crane said.
Trustees OK'd the $21,945
Corona project, which will
replace sprinklers and a timer
and will install new landscap-
ing, a flag pole, a "Welcome to

is what wp do
An "art project" mural on the side of a Neptune Beach business will remain intact after months of-
debate. Owners of Day and Night Moves, Inc. will be allowed to leave a mural of a sun and moon
on the west side of the building after City Council Monday approved the art project in a 4-1 deci-
sion. The painting sparked debate because the city previously said that the art was considered a
sign, but the ratio was larger than what the city allows. To alleviate confusion, the city passed an
ordinance to define an "art project" as "any mural, illustration, painting or sculpture that is
approved by the City Council as art that enhances the commercial district." Councilor John
Weldon Monday said he was opposed to the Day and Night moves art project because it is
"clearly a commercial sign." He added that the business owners are using a technicality to have
a commercial sign.

Get horse permits online
The training required to ride'
horseback on St. Johns County
beaches is now available online.
Horseback riding is allowed on
roughly 30 miles of the county's
42 miles of coastline. But the
county's Habitat Conservation
Plan, issued through the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service,
requires that horseback riders
complete the protected species
training and become an eques-
trian guide in order to get a rid-
ing permit. The training is
intended to minimize potential
impact to threatened and
endangered sea turtles and the
native Anastasia Island Beach.
Mice that use the beaches for
their nesting activities.
To access the online training,
v -i s i t

and click on Protected Species
Training. After taking the train-
ing, applicants will take a quiz,
choose which type of equestrian
guide they wish to be and com-
plete an application. Horse rid-
ers may then mail the applica-
tion or drop it off at the
Recreation and Parks office, 175
Mizell Road, St. Augustine,

Tower issue pending
St. Johns County attorney
Patrick McCormack said last
week the county's legal battle
over a cell tower off Roscoe
Boulevard is in the "discovery
phase" as both sides review the
case files.

The company, Verticality,
sued the county in late 2006
after St. Johns County commis-
sioners denied the company's
application, for a cell tower on
the Lord of Life Lutheran
Church property at 276- N.
Roscoe Blvd..
"They contend that the coun-
ty didn't have substantial evi-
dence to. deny their applica-
tion," McCormack said in a tele-
phone interview. "The county
believes there may be alterna-
tive locations with less of a neg-
ative impact," he added.
A Marsh Landing resident
complained to the County
Commission about poor cellular
service in Palm Valley and asked
if the county could hasten set-
tlement of the lawsuit.

This two-story, 8,645-square-foot oceanfront home being built next to public beach access (left) at
the end of Solana Road in Ponte Vedra Beach dwarfs the adjacent homes: a 3,168-square-foot
structure to the south and a 2,492-square-foot home to the north. Owners James E. and Donna Y.
Stephenson of Alpharetta, Ga., plan to make this their second or vacation home after it is finished
in spring 2009, a family spokesman said. James Stephenson, president and chief executive officer
of Yancey Brothers, a Caterpillar dealer, and his wife have been visiting and vacationing. in Ponte
Vedra for more than 30 years and have many friends in the area, the spokesman said. The 155-
front-foot parcel, which previously held the historic Tift house, was purchased for $5 million,
according to St. Johns County records.

Survey planned for Corona Road

P-SPEEDING, from A-1
added a sign warning drivers to
yield to pedestrians.
But one unintended conse-
quence may be the apparent
increase in speeding on
Corona Road, which runs par-
allel to Solana and connects
Ponte Vedra Boulevard with
A1A. Both roads limit speed to
25 mph east of A1A.
Trustee Doug Crane told the
board he got a complaint about
speeding on Corona from a res-
ident of Granada Terrace.
St. Johns County Sheriff's Lt.
Tommy Aman acknowledged
concerns about speeding on
Corona, telling trustees a
deputy recently wrote four
speeding tickets there within
four hours.
Aman said the highest speed
recorded by the deputy was 38
Enforcement is to be stepped
up, Aman said. Also, a survey
of traffic on Corona is planned

over a 24-hour period, he said.

To the editor:
The Sulzbacher Center is so
grateful for the warm welcome
our HOPE team received when
they arrived at the beaches on
January 22. Businesses, law
enforcement, local government
and individual residents have
shown their support for the
HOPE Beaches program, which
provides services to homeless
men, women and children in
the beaches area. A full under-
standing of the services offered
by the HOPE team should instill
a real sense of pride in Beaches
residents, but some mispercep-
tions about the program's pur-
pose persist.
HOPE Beaches is the newest
program offered by The
Sulzbacher Center, a
Jacksonville-based provider of
comprehensive services to
homeless men, women and




children for over twelve years.
Over the last seven years, the
Downtown HOPE team has
made over 5,500 referrals for
homeless individuals to receive
shelter, substance abuse treat-
ment, medical, dental, vision
and psychiatric care. HOPE
Beaches founded on this very
successful model will provide
the same linkage of services for
the homeless population at the
beach. The ultimate goal of this
program, and of all programs at
The Sulzbacher Center, is to
move individuals into stable

' The Leader's Opinion

Spend taxes objectively

Spending public money on art for public places has
sparked substantial public debate in recent months.
That did not deter Atlantic Beach City Commissioners,
however, as they voted 3-2 to spend $45,000 in bed tax
funds to buy a bronze sculpture. Their expenditure will be
matched with a $50,000 appropriation from Jacksonville
City Council discretionary funds.
Much has been said about whether such an expenditure
can be justified in such tough economic times.
We would suggest, however, that the question is rele-
vant no matter what the economic times. Taxes are com-
pulsory and when they are used to fund frivolity and gra-
cious living, it is reasonable to challenge whether that is
appropriate government spending.
No amount of questioning, however, will alter the deci-
sion in Atlantic Beach. But the recent art acquisition can
provide a valuable lesson.
All of us would benefit if our municipalities were to
clearly develop objective blueprints for all future expendi-
tures that do not dearly and directly contribute to the bot-
tom line for public health and safety.
If an expenditure does not improve public safety or
assure our collective wellbeing, citizens and their elected
officials should have clear guidelines on why public
money should be utilized.
Objective measures and guidelines would remove the
emotional part of the funding decision. And, when it
comes down to it, whether the economic times are bear-
ish or bullish, the public's money and trust must be pro-
Homeowners who can't afford to pay their taxes risk los-
ing their homes. Taxpayers should know that their taxes
are being used for essential public services, not pretty dec-
orations for the neighborhood they may no longer be able
to afford.

It's Taxing without Rudy

R udy's gone and now I'm
really depressed. It's win-
ter, you see, a rough time
for the self-employed. It's rough
because our 1099s -- official
records of how much our clients
paid us the prior year -- arrive in
the mail.
. My 1099s always add. up to
more than I thought they
would my taxes will be higher
than I expected, and that
depresses me.
And because I'll have to
organize hundreds of receipts
that I keep in a giant box a
task, that will take countless
hours -- I get even more
But Rudy was going to save
me from some of those woes.
Like all the Republican candi-
dates, Rudy was going to extend
Bush's tax cuts. He was going to
lower the capital-gains tax from
15 to 10 percent and the corpo-
rate-tax from 35 to 25 percent.
His ideas would have
unleashed investment and eco-
nomic growth, as lower taxes
always do.
But the best part of the Rudy
plan had a direct impact on ME:
It would have given me the
option to keep filing returns
under our current nightmarish
tax code or voluntarily switch to
Rudy's simplified tax plan.
Rudy's voluntary plan had
three tax brackets of 10, 15 and
30 percent. It provided basic
deductions (health insurance,
mortgage interest, charitable
contributions, state and local
income taxes and a $3,500 per-

sonal exemption). It was so sim-
ple, it required only one piece of
paper. An English major could
complete it.
But Rudy is gone and his sim-
plified tax plan is gone with
That leaves us with Romney
and McCain. Romney would
cut the corporate tax rate and
eliminate all taxes on interest,
dividends and capital gains for
folks with incomes below
$200,000. He says he'll simplify
the tax code, but doesn't
explain how.
Ditto for McCain. He says,
he'll keep Bush's tax cuts in
place and simplify tax filing,
too, but hasn't said how.
But at least Romney and
McCain give lip service to sim-
plification. Hillary and Obama
don't even do that. They'd like-
ly make things worse.
Hillary promises to raise taxes
right out of the gate -- she'll

repeal Bush's tax cuts on folks
making over $250,000.'She has
lots of other ideas, but none
that will simplify our taxes.
Obama will repeal Bush's tax
cuts, too -- on the top 1 percent
of income earners. He offers one
idea to making filing easier and
it's a doozie. He'll have the IRS
use your employer-provided
financial information to "pre-
populate" your tax-return form
for you. It should take you only
five minutes to complete the
rest of your return, he promises.
Don't worry about the IRS
making a mistake -- that you
owe them a couple million, for
instance. I'm sure you'll be able
to clear up the matter with only
a minimal amount of jail time.
That's why I've been
depressed since Rudy dropped
out of the presidential race.
If only he'd had a better strat-
egy in the primaries, maybe he
could have made it to the White
House. I had visions of him
cleaning up our burdensome
tax code the way he did Times
Sure, I know Rudy's tax plan
wasn't as simple as it appeared -
.- knuw I'd ll,havetoorgan-.
izqfmy 'ibusess receiptsts and
deductions, which is still going
to take me hours. But at least he
was moving in the right direc-
Now he's gone. Now I'm wor-
ried that a Democrat will win
the presidency and make my fil-
ing woes even worse.
Thanks for nothing, Rudy.

program's two full time staff
members and Baptist Health
which is contributing $10,000
to support psychiatric services
to those in need at the beach.
The cities of Jacksonville,
Atlantic and Neptune Beach
have all contributed to a new
van that will be dedicated to the
HOPE Beaches program. This
collaboration between the for-
profit, the non-profit and gov-
ernment sectors is a model for
communities nationwide.
We are very excited about the
opportunity to work with the
beaches communities to address
homelessness in a constructive
way. At the end of the day, we
will all benefit from this collab-
orative effort.

Those new to state feel like dog among the fleas

To the editor:
The recent vote on the prop-
erty tax initiative, to me, was
such a big disappointment.
Being a recent arrival to
Atlantic Beach (3 years), I have
been paying more than 5 times
the taxes than my neighbors of
lengthier residency who live in
similar homes, if not nicer and
larger, pay.
Now, should they move, they
will still be immune to this
obscene tax rate that I pay.
Between taxes and insurance, I
pay 14 percent of my gross
annual income. I am tithing to
the State of Florida, and then
some. This amount exceeds my
marginal federal tax rate.
As a result of the vote, we can
expect to pay more in fees for
services now. These are taxes
that we can't deduct on our fed-
eral income tax returns, but we
will still demand the services we
have come to expect and they
cost. What exactly is the long
term gain here? Please, some-
one enlighten me without the
use of mirrors.

It seems to me that Floridians
don't understand the concept of
"paying for what you want or
forego the desire". There is a
denial that the tax system is out
of control and our elected lead-
ers have done nothing to help
educate the general population
as to where this line of thought
is leading.
The real estate market is
depressed across the country
and I can't really see selling my
house, because full disclosure
would mean that any potential
owners from out of state will
realize what the annual tax lia-
bility is and they would choose
to live somewhere else: that
leaves one of the lucky
Floridians with the new porta-
bility measure at their disposal
and a depressed market working
against me.
On my loan disclosure state-
ment, I was afforded only the
current taxes on the house
when I purchased. I did not
know that my taxes would
increase 550% above that num-
ber. My bad- I should have done

more research.
I can only hope that I can sell-
even at a moderate loss- so I can
live better life among those
appreciative of equality and fair-
ness. I came too late to be con-
sidered an equal among the cit-
izens of Florida and I do feel like
a dog among the fleas.
Somehow, it really doesn't
surprise me that one of the
biggest backers of this initiative
was the real estate lobby.
This might sound like sour
grapes, but it is really a call to
beware- Floridians have dug a
hole and now they have calling
for dynamite to go a bit deeper.
I can hope for a challenge to
the constitutionality of this
action (and to the disparate tax
rate) or wait until we have to
pay a "community construction
fee" for the dikes. I'm not sure
which will happen first.
It seems that forward think-
ing and corrective action takes a
back seat to denial.

More letters to the editor:

All benefit from working together for homeless



Ihad a $2 wager with a good
friend whether Amendment
1 to restrict property taxes
would pass. I said it would, and
he said it wouldn't. Now, I am
$2 richer.
To me its passage was not sur-
prising. We are witnessing an
incredible downturn in the
housing market with its associ-
ated economic pain and suffer-
ing. Many families in Florida are
struggling because of the severe
economic conditions.
Additionally we have seen
governments in Florida at all
levels receive windfall revenues
because of the incredible appre-
ciation in property values over
the past several years. Many of
those governments flushed with
extra money have spent it
unwisely, or at least in the eyes
* of a many taxpayers, unwisely.
That excess money has led some
governments to spend outside
the scope of their normal activi-
ties on projects that some might
question if they are really the
responsibility of government.
Most recently in Atlantic
Beach the commission voted to
spend almost $100,000 on a
sculpture. The first time they
voted on spending the money it
was defeated 3-2; this time it
passed. While I recognize that
half the money will come from
restricted funds, that is the
tourist development tax, I still
-wonder If that-is the best use of
S.thefunds. A ciuzen' t ihe
meeting suggested using the
money for beach improvement
which would be allowed,
* instead of buying the sculpture.
Hmm...sort of sounded sensi-
ble to me. Furthermore, the
other half of the money came
from the City of Jacksonville,
specifically from Councilman
Graham's discretionary fund.
Does discretionary mean it
could be matching an Atlantic
Beach contribution for some-.
thing that may have more direct
benefit to the citizens than a
sculpture? Of course for some
this is viewed as another exam-
ple of government making friv-
olous expenditures and only
furthers the desire of citizens to
restrict government revenues so
this can't happen. It encourages
the kind of voting outcome we
have just witnessed.
Another problem; govern-
ments have donated to ,non
profits and charities in increas-
ing volume and now many are
very dependent on those gov-
ernment handouts for their
operations and sometimes their
survival. But here is a philo-
sophical question. Why should
government make a decision for
me and you as to what charity
'or non-profit to which they
It seems they should either
give to all or give to none; that
would be fair. If the private sec-
tor through donations by peo-
ple and or businesses is not will-
ing to fund a seemingly worth-
while project or effort, why
should government be expected
to do so?
Where does the responsibility
of government end? What does
promote the general welfare
really mean? I believe the gov-
ernment must provide for pub-
lic safety to the reasonable best
of their ability, provide for pub-
lic health within the arena of
their control, pass and adminis-
ter laws to establish order in the
community from traffic to zon-
ing. Beyond that, how far
should a local government go?
In reality the only way we can
control government is to con-
trol their revenue, because gov-
ernment will spend every cent
you give them and offer good
justification for each expendi-
ture. Controlling revenue
should force discipline and good
Now 1 think the message from
over sixty percent of the voters
in Florida is this; you have gone
too far, spent too much, and we
the voters are going to yank you
back to reality. Our local elected
officials need to pay heed to
that message also.

Solomon, 65, died January 30,
2008. Born February 12, 1942, he
grew up on the ocean in Ponte
Vedra Beach and was sincerely
loved by all who knew him, the
family said.
He had a kind, generous heart
and boisterous sense of humor
that he willingly shared. His greet-
ing, "Hey, Buddy," always made
you smile. Everybody he touched
was bettered by knowing him,
said the family.
He loved his country and served
it proudly in the Coast Guard. He
was a fishing boat owner, captain,
land-clearing and construction
company owner, avid Florida
Gator and NASCAR fan, and grad-
uate of the University of North
Florida with a degree in
Construction Engineering.
He was certainly colorful and
the epitome of loving life and liv-
ing it to the fullest, the family said.

While he was generous with his
genuine affection for others, his
deepest love was reserved for his
son, Billy Wiisanen, Billy's wife,
Ada, and his grandchildren,
Mitchell and Lydia.
He is survived by his son and
family; his brother, Bob Solom6n;
and his close cousins, Gray C.
Solomon, Jim Solomon and Chip
Solomon; and nephew, Biff Jones.
Services will be held at 2 p.m.
February 9 at Christ Episcopal
Church, Ponte Vedra Beach.
Margaritaville attire is requested.
In lieu of flowers, contributions
in his memory would be appreci-
ated to Christ Episcopal Church,
Pablo Towers Auxiliary Fund. The
family would be grateful .if
thoughts and memories could be
sent to Gray C. Solomon at
GCSPVB@Gmail.com or mailed to

Vedra Beach, FL 32082 for inclu-
sion in the service.

most influence on building in
But to fellow architect and
sculptor David Engdahl,
Harwick is an artist.
As Hardwick prepared to
speak to a gathering Monday
at the Cultural Center at Ponte
Vedra Beach, Engdahl said
much of Hardwick's work
"involved art and artist as co-
designers in architecture, and I
really think coordination is
"He understands both the
artist and the artwork, and,
therefore, the buildings
become more of an artwork
than architecture," said
Engdahl, who has known
Hardwick for about 30 years
but has not worked with him.
Among Hardwick's creations
are Friendship Fountain in
Jacksonville and the
Physicians Insurance building
in Riverside.
"Taylor is an artist archi-
tect," Engdahl said. "There's
others that are technicians,
there's others that are focused
on the business aspects of it.
But Taylor is an artist."
American Institute of
Architects Emeritus Hardwick
was the latest to speak at Art @
3 at the Cultural Center.
After a self-introduction,
Hardwick took a seat as the
audience of about 25 began to
watch a 53-minute film about
Hardwick and his career. The
film was produced by the
University of North Florida's
education and dommunica-

Hardwick has seen many of
.his creations torn down or
revised. His Friendship

the Jacksonville riverfront in
1965, was reduced to less than
half its size when a city-owned
restaurant and parking lot
were built.
"I want to move people, not
just water," he said of the
Hardwick studied at the
University of Pennsylvania,
where he was awarded two
degrees. Born and raised in
suburban Philadelphia,
Hardwick moved to Florida in
1949. He worked three years

for another architect before
opening his own architectural
design practice.
Hardwick said he has
designed more than 100 cus-
tom houses, five high schools,
five elementary schools and a
classroom building at the
University of Florida.
"Those are-the major,- in
size works, and dozens of
smaller offices," he said before
the film.
He's also done one high rise.
"I did the Fletcher Building
in Riverside, now called the
Physicians Insurance
Company. It's eight stories."
Having retired in 2002,
Hardwick is working on his
memoires with Jo Alexander,
who was at the Cultural
Center presentation. He has a

Regulars at the annual
Incredible Edibles at St.
Paul's by the Sea
Episcopal Church always
look for Wendall Sheppard's
cakes on the bake sale table.
The five rum cakes he
baked for the most recent
event sold shortly after the
doors opened.
His .fruitcake, showcased
on a glass-covered cake plate,
was one of the raffle items at
the event.
Sheppard said he learned'
to cook more than 30 years
ago out of necessity. As a sin-
gle parent raising three chil-
dren, he said he simply
"needed something on the
table" to feed them.
What began as a slow
process of learning the basics
eventually turned into a life-
long interest in cooking.
He also learned to be an
accomplished baker. Over
the years Sheppard has host-
ed countless dinner parties,
church dinners, family birth-
day celebrations and holiday
dinners at his Atlantic Beach
' Among his favorite recipes
are many handed down from
his mother and grandmoth-
er. Holiday dinners, often....
includeimany southern,::
favorites from Sheppard's
childhood, such as ambrosia,
pound cake, red velvet cake,
fresh egg nog and roast

Sheppard also has about
400 cookbooks, including a
complete set of Southern
Living magazine cookbooks
dating from 1979.
His collection of dishware
includes sets of: china and
pottery with up to 30 place
settings. He keeps the dish-
ware in a walk-in closest spe-
cially fitted to accommodate
dishes, glassware, crystal,
-flatware and serving pieces.
"My Mom's Ice Box Pies"
are two recipes Sheppard
used when entertaining.
Both pies, peach and blue-
berry, must be made at least
a day before serving, he says.
Sheppard remembers that
his mother substituted sour
cream for a whipped cream
topping for these pies back
in the 1940s when some
foods were hard to find.
Substituting sour cream for
whipped cream turned out to
be an improvement on the
original recipe, Sheppard
said.... ... ... .. .. .

Wendall Sheppard's storage closet is fitted with shelves for
china, pottery and glassware to make entertaining easy.

training tests Sunday at the University
of North Florida's Aquatic Center.
They swam laps, tread water in the
deep end and dove for quarters and
When the recruits weren't immersed
in the heated pool, they stood at atten-
tion "watching the boat."
"Look to your left and right," assistant

The drill involves standing at atten-
tion with eyes fixed on an imaginary
lifeboat at sea.
In its halcyon days, the Corps utilized
wooden lifeboats for ocean rescues and
to assist boaters in distress.
Today, wooden lifeboats are iconic
images of the organization's storied
past, which dates to 1912.
"Get some water, stretch out and get
back on the line and watch the boat,"
Rick Foster, the Corps' lead instructor,
told recruits who completed a 22-lap
pool swim on Sunday.
Swimming 550 yards in less than 12
minutes is a minimum requirement for
lifeguard recruits. Full-fledged Corps
members must swim the same distance
in under 10 minutes.
More than two-thirds of the recruits
swam the 550 in under 13 minutes on
One dropped out after three laps.
Another threw up on the pool deck. The

fastest recruit clocked in at just over six
minutes. The slowest finisher took more
than 20 minutes to complete the task.
Moving down the line, Foster told
recruits who failed to make the 12-
minute time standard that their training
days were numbered.
"If you can't do it in under 13 minutes
next time, I'll have to ask you to leave,"
Foster said in a soft voice.
Later that afternoon, Foster gave a
similar speech to four recruits who

players and supports.

Nease senior Stacey Hanburry.

top girls golfer. "People proba-

like a book."
Friday's victory helped
Panthers players erase the
memory of last season when
Bishop Moore scored 28,sec-
onds into the regional final,
then retreated into a defensive
shell and emerged with a 1-0

win. That knocked Nease out
of the playoffs and the
Hornets went on to win the
Class 4A state title.
In 2006, the Panthers
knocked Bishop Moore out of
the playoffs in the regional
final and went on to earn their
third state championship in
five years.
Despite the emotional victo-
ry Friday, Silverberg wasn't
entirely pleased with his
team's performance.
"We dominated possession
but we didn't have a lot of
great opportunities. We had
maybe three or four good
chances," he said.
"But the amazing part was

Boys look strong in regional playoff opener

Nease High forward Filip Ivanov boots his fourth goal of the night last Thursday in a regional quar-
terfinal matchup against Crystal River. Ivanov paced the Panthers to an 8-0 victory as the team
advanced to Tuesday's regional semifinal against Lecanto.


Neither fog nor Crystal River
could deter the Nease boys
soccer team from making a
strong statement in the region-
al quarterfinals last Thursday.
Thick fog blanketed the
pitch at Panther Stadium, but
the dense condensation could-
n't mask Nease's dominance in
a mercy-rule 8-0 victory.
Junior forward Filip Ivanov
was the catalyst of the
Panthers' attack, scoring four
goals to raise his season total
to 31.
Ivanov got Nease on the
board 12 minutes into the
game when his right-footed
blast kissed the goal post and
snuck into the left side of the
Twelve minutes later Ivanov
struck again with a low missile
from about 25 yards out to
make it a two-goal advantage.
From there, the rout was on
as the Panthers built a 4-0
halftime lead, then liberally
substituted and still' scored
four more goals in the second
half to end things early.
Along with Ivanov's offen-

sive fireworks, fellow junior
A.J. Nelson notched a pair of
goals and added two assists.
Alex Castellanos and Joe
McKinley scored Nease's other
Fernando Duffoo and Josh
Porter shared the shutout
duties in goal for Nease.
With the win, the Panthers
successfully started a defense

"I think we can get to the
state final four," said Nease
head coach Ken Kirsch. "It's
not that we're looking past
anyone and we know it's not
going to be easy, but with the
way we're playing right now I
can definitely see us making it
back to Fort Lauderdale."

place at Lockhart Stadium in

Party boat anglers come up with great catches

Anglers coming off the
party boats last week had
the fishing community
buzzing as they unloaded their
eye-popping catches of snap-
per, grouper, beeliners and sea
Capts. George Strate on the
"Mayport Princess," Scott
Reynolds on the "King Nep-
tune" and Dennis Young on
his "Sea Dancer" reported bent
poles on every stop they made.
Don't forget the very popu-
lar El Cheapo Sheepshead
Tournament sponsored by the
J.O.S.F.C to be held on
Saturday February 23rd.. Entry
forms can be picked up at any
of the local bait and tackle
shops. The entry fee is $60.
The captains meeting will be
held on the 22nd at 7:30 p.m.
in the J.O.S.F.C club house.
Houston Stevens led smiling
anglers off the "Mayport

Princess" Sunday afternoon
with a pair of ten pound snap-
per and a cooler full of big sea
bass and beeliners.
Other anglers were gathered
around the cleaning table with
28 other snapper weighing up
to 17 pounds, two big amber-
jack, a 16-pound grouper and
dozens of big sea bass and bee-
liners. One angler reported

that they caught 35 snapper
on the Monday trip.
On the "King Neptune," the
story was much the same.
Snapper weighing up to 15
pounds were iced down in all
coolers along with some of the
largest sea bass and beeliners
that have hit the cleaning
table this season.
Capt. Dennis Young with the
Kevin Coleman party on the
"Sea Dancer" was the next
boat to report in at Mayport
Marine on Sunday. They
caught their limit of 10 snap-
per weighing up to 12 pounds
and 30 huge sea bass.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" with Mark and
Andy Wise made a jetty trip on
Sunday and they weren't dis-
appointed. They anchored off
the tip of the north rocks and
pulled up four reds to 38 inch-
es, two sheepshead to seven
pounds, a drum and one trout.
In the canal, veteran guide
John Dyrssen and Dwight ,
Hibbard teamed up Wednesday
for three flounder, 10 blues
and two keeper trout out of a
dozen. On Thursday, Dr.
Fechtel and a friend fished the
canal and creeks with John
and caught 14 trout (kept two)
and a dozen blues.
Willie Ulmer and Louise
Carson used artificial in the
river near Sanford last Sunday
and caught 24 shad weighing
between two and three pounds
along with seven perch. They
trolled and cast their plugs
throughout the morning.
Al Wiltshire and friend Jim
Bell on Jim's "Renegade" fished
the river last week near N.A.S.

count attached to one of
the genres so you save even more. For example,
today (Wednesday) if you visit Buy the Book,
you can take 75% off paperbacks and non-fic-
tion. Take the kids along tomorrow (Thursday)
and receive 75% off on children's books and
some fiction for yourself.
ChooChoo Van Wabbit, the store's own black
rabbit, knows how to be quiet, but mothers
don't have to worry about their children. There
is a room with windows and comfortable little
chairs where the young browsers can look at
their own books and even talk about what they
like. Parents can close the door and read to the
children without fear of disturbing other shop-
pers. Also located in that room are books on
women's issues and the Christian book section.
This is not Bob's first bookstore, but it is in the
place he loves the Beach. He is a member of a
synagogue in Ponte Vedra, and is proud to have
this location for his store at the Beaches. His two
other bookstores specialize in textbooks, one
serving UNF and FCCJ, and the other.located in
the Coastal School of Law. Buy the Book is an
expansion of the concept he started with those
stores and is based on his experience in this
"We're heavy into business and Christian
books," he says. "Business men and women are
coming up today who have been getting advice
from friends or the internet" but not from
books. "Business books carry more authoritative
information. They have been written by experts
and carefully screened by publishers. They carry

good information from which people in business
can benefit."
"At our store, we have helpful books in man-
agement, business, advertising, entrepreneur-
ship and motivation. Many times business peo-
ple don't know what they may be, doing wrong.
Books will tell you. You don't know what you
don't know!" When this wealth of help can be
available at affordable prices, it makes good busi-
ness sense to take advantage of the opportunity.
"Business success doesn't change that much,"
he says. Culture changes but the principals to
success are timeless. Some of the standard books
are still helpful because they spell out such
basics as "being civil, nice" as Bob sees it.
When you are shopping for a gift for a book-
lover, Buy the Book has some great ideas for you.
"We have a selection of new books, like James
Patterson," Bob says. You can select one of these
plus two other books, have them gift wrapped
and you are out the door with three gifts for an
amazing total of $10. There are other popular
fiction authors like Connelly, Kellerman or
Stephien king to iiiatch'with "friends" 6orf family
names on your shopping list.
Buy the Book is open Monday through Sunday
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and credit cards are accept-
ed. ,Managers Gae Weber and Ed Tottman, both
Beaches residents, are there to assist you in your
book search or to provide reading gift sugges-
tions. It's not an outlet or a chain, but a wel-
come new local merchant for our Beaches com-
