Residents grill Nocatee developer


Greg Barbour might have
felt more like a punching bag
than a developer Monday
In front of an audience of
about 50 at the Palm Valley
Community Association meet-
ing,: Batbour was peppered

with questions about the Parc
Group's proposal to add 541
acres to the 15,000-acre devel-
opment of Nocatee west of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
Barbour, a principal in Parc,
master developer of Nocatee,
explained that single-family
homes would be built along
the Intracoastal north of
County Road 210. The land is
needed to free up land within

Nocatee for parking and ball
fields, Parc has said.
Mary Kohnke, who as a St.
Johns County commissioner
in 2001 voted to approve
Nocatee, questioned Barbour's
integrity, saying he promised
Nocatee would not approach
the Intracoastal.
"You said you would never
dream of touching the
Intracoastal," Kohnke said to

Barbour. "And here you are ...
years later," she said.
Kohnke said the land should
be added to Nocatee only if a
200-foot buffer separated the
homes from the Intracoastal
and if no docks were allowed.
"If you're going to do it,
then do what any other devel-
oper with personal integrity
would do and buffer it," she
told Barbour.

"That's not fair," he replied.
"You weren't fair when you
came to me. . and said you
wouldn't touch the
Intracoastal," she retorted.
Residents also vented their
frustration over the reasoning
behind the project and the
environmental impact devel-
opment would have on the


Members fume over

hike in Cabana dues

Turner Street displays a repli-
ca of a $100 savings bond

tic performance among Pop
Warner football players. See
Education Briefs, A-9.

Hell hath no fury like a customer
faced with an 80 percent price
increase especially if the cus-
tomer sees little or no justification
for the hike.
"Fury" may describe the feelings
of some members of the ocean-
front Cabana Club in Ponte Vedra
Beach, whose irritation at a recent
increase in annual membership
fees has been expressed in e-mails
to each other and in letters to
Cabana Club management.
"I would like to express my
extreme anger over your decision

to increase your members' annual
dues yet again, and this time by an
exorbitant nearly 80 percent," says
a letter to the management from
Andrea Splan.
"I believe that the dues increase
is unreasonable and is tantamount
to price gouging," Corr Davis says
in a Feb. 11 letter to Jeff Mayers,
general manager of the Sawgrass
Golf Resort & Spa, formerly known
as the Sawgrass Marriott Resort.
Cabana Club members were
notified in their Jan. 16 renewal
package that the annual dues for a
family is $2,490, up from about
$1,400 for 2007. That was up from

8 finalists vie for job

as PV football coach

The search for a head football
coach at Ponte Vedra High School
has narrowed to eight candidates
with "impressive credentials,"
principal Craig Speziale said
Speziale, who would not iden-
tify the candidates, said that each
of the finalists has at least one
year of head coaching experience.
Speziale and Ponte Vedra High
athletic director Gene Baker are in
the process of interviewing the
finalists. A determination on who
will be the inaugural Sharks head
coach is expected by March 1.
"We have some tremendous
applicants," added Speziale, a for-
mer high school assistant football
coach in Dade County..
"Like it or not, an upstart coach
would not get an interview."
Baker said he received 89 appli-
cations for the marquee position,

adding that anyone who didn't
have "significant credentials" did
not make the top 16.
Success on the gridiron is not
the only attribute Baker and
Speziale are looking for in a head
football coach.
"We don't want someone who
will be here for a year and leave,"
said Baker, a former college base-
ball coach for more than 20 years.
"We want a program builder."
Added Speziale: "We're doing
our homework. Gene is a very
thorough man."
Having held the distinction of
being a head coach and an athlet-
ic director at the college level,
Baker understands both sides of
the hiring process.
He said the toughest part of
choosing a head coach will be
telling the other seven they didn't
get the job.
"There are so many good candi-
dates that I will have say 'No' to,"
,added Baker, who has interviewed

AB balks at billiard

club near a school

A proposed billiard club is prompting the Atlantic
Beach City Commission to take a trip downtown.
The proposed bar falls into Jacksonville's jurisdic-
tion along Mayport Road, and the applicant is
requesting a waiver to reduce the proximity to
Mayport Middle School, according to Jacksonville
Planner Andy Hetzel.
"We're trying to clean up Mayport Road and that's
certainly taking a step in the wrong direction," said
Mayor John Meserve, who brought the issue up at
Monday's meeting.
Hetzel said that the city has received calls from con-
cerned citizens questioning the type of bar, but he
said it is the city's understanding that it is a "bar with
pool tables."
The applicant is requesting to waive the minimum
required distance from a church or school from 1,500
feet to 1,180 feet, according to Hetzel. The club is pro-
posed to be located at 2593 Mayport Road.
Meserve said that the Commission should attend
the Planning Commission meeting in Jacksonville to
represent the city and express opposition to the pro-
The meeting will be held on Feb. 28 at 1 p.m. at

Judge tells JB it can block tall hotel

Developers of a vacant parcel
of land at the southeast corner
of Beach Boulevard and A1A in
Jacksonville Beach are back to
the drawing board.
A judge last week quashed
plans to construct a 50-foot
hotel on the site, ruling that the
Shivam Properties did not have
vested rights to change from a
planned office condominium to
a hotel.
"That's not what they applied
for," City Attorney Stephen
Stratford said Monday.
Circuit Court Judge Frederick
Tygart ordered Feb. 5 that
Shivam Properties is not permit-
ted to build a hotel on the site
"unless it complies with the 35-
foot height requirement."
But Tygart in his ruling said
the vested property rights only
apply to the original use which
was granted by the city's
Planning and Development
Department four years ago for
an office condominium.
"If he wishes to build a hotel,
he will become subject to the
new height requirement,"
Tygart said in his ruling. "If [the]
plaintiff wants to be excluded
from the 35-foot height require-
ment [he] is limited to building
a project that is consistent with
the project for which approval
was given."
Between April and July, 2004,
Shivam Properties purchased
several parcels in the Central
Business District (CBD) where
an apartment complex,
Mexican cantina and gas station
once stood.
The property was rezoned July
19, 2004 to Redevelopment
District zoning in the CBD for a
mixed use of office, retail and

parking with a maximum
height of 50 feet.
According to the ordinance,
the project was limited to
70,000-square-feet of profes-
sional office space and 5,300-
square-feet of retail with a total
of 254 garage parking spots.
City planners approved a site
plan in August, 2004 and issued
a building permit on Oct. 24,
2004 just days before the City
Charter was amended to limit
the height of new projects to. 35-
The charter amendment
offered a concession to allow
developers with approved con-
struction permits prior to the
amendment to build taller than
the amendment limit.
But, in his ruling, Tygart said
the charter amendment states
that any such property "shall be
limited to the uses, density, con-
figuration and all other ele-
ments and conditions set forth
in the preliminary development
plan . ..The permitted uses did
not include a hotel."
As condominium sales
waned, Shivam Properties opted
to change the use of the build-
ing from professional and retail
to a hotel of the same 50-foot
"Shivam believed that since
they were not changing the
footprint of the property's build-
ing, they had a vested right to
develop the property to its orig-
inal intended height and that
they would be able to include
the hotel use," according to the
final judgment.
In early December, 2006,
Shivam Properties began
expensing the development of a
hotel on the site, spending
$139,183 to date, according to
the court records.

Strawberries get chocolate coat


Robin McMullen, manager
of Peterbrooke Chocolatier in
.Ponte Vedra Beach, is busy

this week, dipping strawber-
ries in chocolate for
Valentine's Day. That's a
process that began in earnest
Monday at the store, in a
strip mall on State Road A1A
just north of Fairfield.

Robin McMullen, manager of Peterbrooke Chocolatier in Ponte
Vedra Beach, is busy dipping strawberries in chocolate leading
up to Valentine's Day. By the time she's done, McMullen, who
has orders running through Friday, said Tuesday she and her
staff likely will have dipped at least 4,000 chocolate-covered
strawberries, a very popular Valentine's Day treat.

7 people rescued from

sinking boat off Mayport

Seven people were rescued
Sunday several miles off the
coast of Mayport after their
boat began sinking in the St.
Johns River, according to U.S.
Coast Guard officials.
The group was traveling in a
37-foot pleasure craft named
"Five Points Major" approxi-
mately 18 nautical miles east of
the St. Johns River when it
began taking on water in the
engine room, according to
Coast Guard Lt. j.g. Adolfo
The Coast Guard received a
distress call at approximately
1:15 p.m. that the boat was
"going down", Viezca said.
The Coast Guard sent out an
"urgent marine broadcast" for
anyone in the area who could

help assist, Viezca said.
Another boat responded to
the call and went to the scene.
Four of the crew members
were transferred onto the
"good samaritan" boat and the
other three were transferred
onto a Coast Guard boat,
Viezca said.
A broken rudder caused a
hole in the bottom of the boat,
according to Kim Haas, one of
the owners, of the Jacksonville
Branch of Sea Tow Services.
Two captains with Sea Tow
also responded and installed
three pumps, which reduced
the flooding and allowed the
boat to continue operating,
Haas said.
Sea T6w hauled the boat to
the St. Johns Boat Company,
according to Haas.

"Yesterday was our first real-
ly big day of strawberry dip-
ping," McMullen said
The chocolate-dipping runs
through Thursday, Valentine's
Day, and into Friday.
"Actually we have about 50
or so orders for Friday," she
McMullen estimated that at
least 4,000 strawberries will
be dipped at the Ponte Vedra
,peach shop.
a# "At this store, I've got about
45 flats of strawberries, which
has at least 4,000. For all the
stores, it's in the hundreds of
'"We dip the strawberries
every morning, fresh. Any
that don't sell, we throw away
or give away."
McMullen said chocolate-
dipped strawberries are a
favorite Valentine's treat.
"It's one of our most popu-
lar items for Valentine's Day,"
she said. "That and the

McMullen had visited the
Peterbrooke production cen-
ter in San Marco early Tuesday
to get a resupply of popcorn.
For those still in need of
Valentine's Day gifts,
McMullen explained some of
the ways the shop sells the
chocolate-dipped fruit.
"We have a clear strawberry
heart box that comes with
about a dozen. That one's for
$18.50," she said. "We have a
$15 box that comes with
roughly eight. Individually,
they're $2.25."

An application submitted last
April to amend the RD zoning
was rejected by the city's plan-
ning staff because it violated the
charter's height restrictions.
Shivam Properties filed a
motion for declaratory relief.
Tygart in his ruling said he
considered the rights afforded to
both parties by the ordinance
and determined that the devel-
opers did not act in good faith
with the city because the city's
planning staff never authorized
plans for a hotel.
"Any funds that the plaintiff
[Shivam Properties] expended
on the hotel portion of this
project were not done in good
faith reliance on any act or
omission of the dty," Tygart
stated in his ruling.
According to the ordinance,
the project must be carried out
in accordance with the rezoning
application for the intended
uses which includes but is not
limited to the 50-foot building
height, size of the individual
components and number of
parking spaces.
The defense also argued that
the rezoning ordinance allows
for any use that is permitted in
the CBD but Tygart ruled that
the ordinance expressly refers to
permitted uses "within the first
floor shopping area" pursuant
to the Land Development Code.
He also notes that the proper-
ty is no longer zoned CBD and is
not subject to the 50-foot height
requirement in that district.
"Therefore, what the ordi-
nance actually states is that the
uses within the shopping center
portion of the project could
include any use permitted with-
in a CBD district except those
specifically disallowed," Tygart
said in his ruling.

Letters to the editor:

Post office in downtown

JB is a flawed vision

To the editor:
After reading David Smith's
column [about finding a home
for the post office], despite the
risks of being labeled an anti-
urban traditionalist, I felt com-
pelled to try to inject a little
sense into his non-sense of
place. While there may be some
who prefer to surround what lit-
tle open/green space now
remains in the historically "core
downtown" area with 35 foot
structures to provide that so
called sense of space, there are
likely many more who would
think it would make better
sense to keep the open space
open rather than corralled by
tall structures.
Perhaps David should have
read the draft of Liza Mitchell's
story about the post office to
better educate himself on the
spatial requirements of the pro-
posed postal facility, employee
and patron parking, ability to
accommodate tractor trailers
moving the bulk mail in and
out of the post office (after 6
p.m. and before 8 a.m., too, I
might add) and the scarcity of
any other parcel of property
within the city that could meet
all those needs before commit-
ting to such a bizarre idea as sit-

Having lived here since 1960,
I can recall the time when Beach
Plaza was THE shopping center
at Jax Beach. And while it has
certainly dwindled to much less
with the advent of Regency
Square, Orange Park Mall, the
Avenues and now St. John's
Town Center, perhaps locating
so vital a facility as the U.S. Post
Office there could breathe new
life into what you referred to as
a strip mall; and what I would
still call a shopping center and
once more make it an active
part of our growing community.
After all, Beach Plaza IS adja-
cent to our police headquarters,

Too bad AB precinct mislabeled

To the editor:
The front page article in the
Feb.l, 2008 edition of the
Leader appeared to have all
that readers would need or
want: a color highlighted box
with pertinent bullets of info.,
a flag draped chart of detailed
voting by precinct and a refer-
ence to page A-3 where more
results awaited for viewing by
the interested citizenry.
Imagine my surprise when I
look at Atlantic Beach and do
not see my precinct(13S)!
Well, maybe it is on page A-3
where I am directed to "see
how your neighbors voted". I
turn to page A-3 and see an
even bigger chart, this time
broken down into political

parties. Again, my precinct is
not there.
They say "perception is reali-
ty" and that is something the
Marsh Oaks neighborhood of
Atlantic Beach has been deal-
ing with for some years: that
this side of town doesn't mat-
ter. For those who have just
moved here, that is the section
of Atlantic Beach west of
Mayport Rd.
It would have been nice fbr
voters in Precinct 13S to see
their numbers right up there
on a level with the other
precincts. Too bad the article
only needed a proofreader.

Dear Tom, I'm not a prude,
nor do I think we should
return to the rigid ways of
the past, but sometimes I
think it would be nice to
court and date the way men
and women did in the old
movies. What do you think?
Dear Dreamer,
Unfortunately, that's not possi-
ble. For 30 years or more, we've
pretended such differences
don't exist. And it is only when

Dear Tom, Call me a nut,
but I saw a John Wayne
movie the other day and I
would love to meet a man as
stoic, confident, modest and
manly as he was. Where can I
find such a fellow?
Digging the Duke
Dear Digging the Duke, The
good news is, there are still
plenty of such men around.
The bad news is, they're old.
The older generations pro-
duced an abundance of simple
men who spent their time

Dear Toin, I'm dying for
romance of any kind. Since
we women can't count on
men to be genuinely roman-
tic anymore, can't we step it
up? What's wrong with us
holding the door open for a
man on a date? Why can't we
pick up the tab?
Dear Progressive, Sounds
good to me! Why don't you
pick me up around 8 p.m.?

Man with broken ankle appreciates the help

To the editor:
A sincere thank you to the
two anonymous women who
helped an elderly man to his
feet. I fell on Monday, Feb. 4
in the parking lot of the
Atlantic Beach Post Office on
Mayport Road. As I tried
twice to get myself up and

sitting for a few minutes as
others passed me by two very
compassionate ladies helped
my to my feet. As it turned
out I had broken my ankle
and could have caused more
damage if they hadn't have
come to my rescue. It is nice
to know there are still people

out there with a good heart
and compassion for others
and to help someone in dis-

If you missed FHS seminar, you missed out

To the editor:
On Thursday, February 7
my daughter and I attended
the Keeping Our Kids Safe
Series sponsored by the
Fletcher High PTSA. This was
the second session offered
and the topic was Safe and
Healthy Relationships. The
moderators were from the
Beaches Womin's
Partnership and they pre-
sented an excellent program.

In attendance were only a
handful of parents and four
students. I was amazed at the
low turnout. We are con-
stantly reminded to be a pos-
itive role model, involved
and communicating with
our children. There was a lot
of discussion and informa-
tion about respect, dating,
boundaries and skills for
identifying the warning
signs of unhealthy relation-

I would urge parents and
students to attend the next
sessions in March on
Internet Safety and in April
on the dangers of Addiction.
These events are free and
snacks are provided. Most
importantly, they are worth
the effort!

Mike Huckabee doesn't

nominated as the
Republican candidate for presi-
dent-he may have figured
that out by the time this col-
umn appears-but there's one
thing about the man that I
like: He's not too proud to live
in a trailer.
Well, it really wasn't a trailer,
his wife, Janet, corrected some
smart-aleck reporter. It was
manufactured housing.
What happened was, the
governor's mansion in
Arkansas was being renovated
about eight years ago, leaving
the Huckabees homeless.
Unable to find acceptable tem-
porary housing, Mrs. Huckabee
called the Arkansas
Manufactured Housing
Association. And guess what?
The association donated a
home that was made elsewhere
and brought in. It was about
the size.of a triple-wide.
Nothing wrong with that.;
The First Family rather liked it.

while occupying the place.
Maybe Mike Huckabee:
should have reminded voters
that as governor he lived in a
humble abode and that he can
feel their pain. Not sure that
would have helped, though..
After all, John McCain lived in
a POW camp for five and a half
years.. --

more undecided voters have
been slogging through this
election year than in any year
in memory. It'll be easier now
that the offering has been nar-
rowed down. But at one time,
when the lineup for both par-
ties looked like Disney World
at hiring time, most of what I
heard was, "I really don't know
who to support."
But at least. this year offers
people with substance. You
may not agree with their sub-
stance, but it's there. Just imag-
ine the mess if Warren G.
Harding, one of our worst pres-
idents and, I might add, a for-
mer newspaper editor, were
.nominated today.. The one
thing Harding had going for
him was looks. He looked pres-
idential. But he wasn't. And in
the end, he agreed. "I arfi not
fit for this office," he said, "and
never should have been here."
The question is: Would we
elect a person in 2008 because
he or she looks presidential? If
your answer is yes, tell me,
"Which one looks presiden-
tial?" All I can say is a couple of

Barbour said by adding the
541 acres, the Parc Group
could create football and soc-
cer fields just west of Davis
Park that would provide 7,500
parking spaces for the PGA
Tour during the annual Players
Championship golf tourna-
Vernon Kelly, project manag-
er for the recent $65 million
renovations to the TPC course
and clubhouse, told residents
the extra parking will be need-
ed as the PGA Tour expands
and promotes the tournament.
But residents did not under-
stand the connection between
the Tour's need for extra park-
ing and the annexation of
lands along the Intracoastal.
"For one week of parking
you're going to take over all
this land?" one resident asked.
Kohnke said no one has
made a concerted effort to use
Davis Park as a parking area
during the tournament.
"We talked to the [St. Johns
County] Recreation and Park
Department about parking at
Davis Park. The situation was
such that parking would cause
severe damage," Kelly said.
But Kohnke countered, say-

ing the soccer fields need to be
renovated anyway, and they
could provide ample parking
for the tournament.
"There's no reason you can't
use those fields back there,"
she said.
The Parc Group's proposal,
which was submitted to coun-
ty planners in December,
would add to Nocatee 541
acres along the west bank of
the Intracoastal Waterway
north of County Road 210.
Although Barbour said the
plan calls for the development
of 141 acres for single-family
homes with 400 acres pre-
served, residents said the envi-
ronmental impact would be
"You're building in an estu-
arine area. If you build just one
house in that area, it's going to
have an impact," one resident
"That's what I find so
appalling that you would pol-
lute the estuary to build these
homes," Kohnke said.
Residents also said the
Intracoastal lands epitomize
the 'Old Florida' landscape,
something rapid development
is quickly wiping out.
Barbour countered that the

additional lands along the
Intracoastal are the "spoil
lands" that were the result of
the dredging done by the Army
Corps of Engineers more than
50 years ago.
"These lands have already
been affected by man," he said.
He added that the Parc
Group would develop the area
in an organized manner, some-
thing future developers may
not do.
But residents were not buy-
ing Barbour's arguments.
"How much more land are
you planning to annex? You
seem to be taking areas that
don't belong to you," said
Phylis Abbatiello, a resident of
Northwestern St. Johns
Barbour said the proposal is-
still being reviewed by county
planners. He said the process of
getting the plan approved by
the Board of County
Commissioners could take up
to a year.

speak to the Ponte Vedra
Beaches Coalition at 10 a.m.

Mayport Road cleanup

may mean more police

A second officer for the crime suppression unit
in Atlantic Beach may be hired with money from
a grant to reduce crime on Mayport Road,
according to city officials.
Because cleaning up Mayport Road has been a
priority, city staff have suggested that communi-
ty development grant funds be utilized to help
with the effort.
In the past, the funds have typically been used
for minor infrastructure projects, but staff has
suggested taking a new approach this year,
according to Community Development Director
Sonya Doerr said.
She told the Commission at a meeting
Monday that although previous projects have
been beneficial, using the funds towards policing
could benefit a greater area of the community.

"Police activity is an entire category to use
community development block grant funds for,"
she said.
Staff anticipates the city will receive between
approximately $100,000 and $200,000 which
would pay for a second crime suppression officer
position, according to Police Chief David
Public Safety officials have been coordinating
over the past several months to consider new
approaches to tackle issues along Mayport Road
such as .crime, prostitution and deteriorated
housing, Doerr said.
Thompson added that the public safety
department will discuss other strategies to com-
bat the issues at the city's strategic planning

dues at $1,100, David

Lodge & Club, said in a tele-
phone interview Tuesday.
For the Ponte Vedra Inn &

fee will increase by $1,000

for a family and $1,450 for a

dues usually increases about
$100 per year.
Mariotti said the current
Lodge & Club dues are good
through April 31, and it has-
n't been determined
whether the dues will
increase for next year.
He said he has heard that
some Cabana Club members
are unhappy with that

"I would say that we have
gotten numerous inquiries
here at the Lodge as result of
the inquiries next door,"
Mariotti said.

'Cradle-to-grave' marketing

Author warns of TV's impact

If your toddler recognizes
"Elmo" or "Dora," he or she
may be caught in the
"cradle-to-grave" marketing
frenzy that teaches lifelong
consumerism, according to
author Susan G. Thomas.
Some parents of young
children, believing they are
giving their charges a jump-
start on learning, may actu-
ally be exposing them to
harm, said Thomas, who is
bringing her message to
Ponte Vedra Beach next
A New Yorker, former
investigative journalist and
mother of a 4-year-old and
one who is "almost 7,"
Thomas is scheduled to
speak to adults at 7 p.m.
Tuesday and to adults and
children atl0 a.m. Feb. 20 at
the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library. Both sessions
are free and open to the pub-
Her message of caution to
parents is spelled out in her
book, "Buy, Buy Baby," pub-
lished in May by Hofighton
Arising from her years as a

journalist, the book talks
about a "whole new indus-
try" that developed after a
1997 White House brain con-
ference, when experts dis-
cussed the importance of the
first three years of life,
Thomas said Monday in a
telephone interview.
From the conference, par-
ents took away the message
of "If I don't stimulate my
baby in the right way before
she turns 3, the door to
learning will close forever,"
according to press literature
about Thomas' book.
And from that parental
fear, some toy and entertain-
ment interests "began selling
the idea that with the right
'stimulation' from a toy, a
video, or some other 'learn-
ing' product, one's infant or
toddler can be made
smarter," the literature
"By 2002, about 90 percent
of children under the age of
3 watched a huge amount of
television every day, and the
parents believed the shows
had something that would "
make their children intellec-
tually capable," Thomas said
in the interview.

But there was "nothing
undergirding" that notion,
she said.
On the contrary, what lit-
tle legitimate research is
done on the subject indicates
that "babies and toddlers
understand virtually nothing
of what TV programs and
videos aim to teach them,"
the literature says.
They do learn how to "rec-
ognize the main characters,"
Thomas said. The child then
recognizes the character's
face on a toy, and the
"American toy box is domi-
nated by licensed toys," she
Placing a baby in front of a
TV may give a parent a few
moments of freedom, and
parents may think that the
child loves watching the
images because "she can't
keep her eyes off it," Thomas
But the baby actually may
be "caught in an orienting
reflex loop," the author'said,
explaining the concept as
follows: The orienting reflex
is an adult's "startle
response." For example,
when an adult hears a siren
or sees a flash of light, the

brain immediately works to
make sense of the noise -or
sight. But the brain of a baby
is not developed enough to
make those connections.
"Television of any kind ..
is so stimulating and so con-
founding to an early devel-
oping brain that it triggers
the orienting reflex,"
Thomas said.
"So babies' brains startle,
they try to figure out what
they're seeing, and then it
[the TV image] changes, and
they startle again," she said.
"And they can't look away
from it."
One occupational therapist
from an Ivy League hospital
contends "that this amount-
ed to a low-level seizure
state," Thomas said.
"If you have a baby
strapped in front of the tele-
vision . they're captive,"
she said.
Instead of relying on the
television to occupy your
child while you cook dinner,
for example, a parent could
"put [the child] . on the
floor [and] give them a
spoon and a pot," Thomas
"We have to learn how to

dinner is as boring a8 you
Thomas said she was invit-
ed to speak in Ponte Vedra
Beach by a friend, Camille
Cline, who is a board mem-
ber for the Ponte Vedra
Friends of the Library.

Although it is "flattering"
to be interviewed by Katie
Couric and other national
media personalities and jour-
nalists as she has since the
book was published "my
favorite favorite thing is just
talking with parents and
[other] people about this,"
Thomas said. "So this, to me,
is the perfect venue."

Greek cuisine inspired Fisher's cooking

Pat Fisher has a collection of antique spice boxes displayed in
her kitchen.

at Fisher's name is well
known locally for
antiques and estate
To her friends, however,
Fisher, a Jacksonville Beach
resident, is also known as
someone who "cooks with
an attitude."
Antiques have been a part
of Fisher's life since she was
a "reluctant teenager"
accompanying her mother
on junking trips. An early
find of an 18th century
English map inspired her
own study of antiques and
eventual career.
After owning China Cat
Antiques at the Beaches for
decades, Fisher and her hus-
band, Ray, now specialize in
estate sales.
Fisher grew up in the
Tampa/Tarpon Springs area
where fresh seafood was
plentiful and a strong Greek
influence was evident in
local cooking.
Except for a few classic
dishes, such as her mother-
in-law's pot roast, Fisher
said she rarely follows
recipes and looks for ways
to improve them.
Fisher continues to enjoy
Greek cuisine and during a
trip to Greece found the

food there to be as wonder-
ful as expected. A trip to
Venice also influenced her
interest in Northern Italian
The Farmer's Market on
Beaver Street in Jacksonville
and specialty stores featur-
ing curries, paprika, bay
leaves, and other spices are
sources for ingredients that
make Fisher's cooking
Her remodeled kitchen
was designed as a gathering
place for her guests.
The room combines two
of her main interests, cook-
ing and antiques. A large
antique work table and sev-
eral chairs fit into the main
kitchen area, which is also
open to the living room.
Cabinets are installed
only under the countertops
so the wall space above the
counters is available to dis-
play antique signs, sales-
men's samples, and spice


J^i phe.directbr of the Guana
Preserve said Monday the
Guana is "one of the best-
kept secrets in St. Johns
Dr. Michael Shirley, speak-
ing before the St. Johns
County Civic Association
Roundtable, has been work-
ing at the Guana for more
' than a year.
In 1999, the Guana was
designated as a National
Estuarine Research Reserve, a
coastal wetland area set aside
by the federal government
for preservation and
research. There are 27 such
areas nationwide, and the
Guana is one of three in
Encompassing more than
64,000 acres, the Guana
receives both federal and
state funding, which are like-
ly to be cut next year, Shirley
"We know we're getting
cuts from both sources, so
coordinating our resources is
going to be important in
making ends meet," he said.
Shirley's administrative
team is not the only organi-
zation managing the Guana.
Various agencies manage cer-
tain portions: The Florida
Fish and Wildlife

Conservation Commission
oversees nearly 10,000 acres,
state and national pail '
account for nearly 7,000
acres, and the St. Johns River
Water Management District
looks over 5,400 acres, to
name a few.
Shirley sees the Guana not
only as a pristine environ-
ment that needs to be pro-
tected, but also as a bastion
of biological and ecological
This research can have
practical uses for local areas.
Shirley said the Guana needs
to reach out to Nocatee,
being developed west of the
Guana, to find ways to
reduce its impact on the
"We basically need to be a
research component that
brings science into regula-
tions," he said.
A slumping housing mar-
ket and a consumer desire for
green products might help
local officials and developers
move toward more environ-
mentally sensitive practices,
Shirley said.
"Folks are starting to real-
ize that you do better selling
[homes] in natural areas. I
don't think you can say that
economic concerns and envi-
ronmental concerns are
mutually exclusive," he said.

She prepares Greek Salad
in the same style as it is
made in Tarpon Springs.
Potato Salad used for the
base of the salad. Shredded
lettuce and arugula are
placed on top of the potato
salad layer.
The remaining salad ingre-
dients (cooked shrimp, black
olives, tomatoes, sliced beets,
cucumbers, green pepper,
anchovy filets, and feta
cheese) add color, texture,
and flavor. These are
arranged on top and beauti-
fully "decorate" the salad,
she said.
Use plenty of oregano
along with the oil and vine-
gar that dresses the salad.
Served with bread, this
serves four as a main course,
said Fisher.
Fisher makes Avocado and
Pink Grapefruit Salad from a
family recipe. This unique
combination of sweet, mild,
and tangy ingredients makes
an excellent side dish served
with fish. Colorful slices of
pink grapefruit and avocado
are arranged on a serving
plate and topped with bright
red sliced strawberries. Just a.
little mayonnaise thinned
with lime juice is drizzled on
top to finish the salad.

Museum seeks public help on mystery

While looking for photographs for the
new temporary exhibit, "A Stroll Down the
Boardwalk," at the Beaches Museum and
History Center, the archivist found three
photographs with the following informa-
tion written on the back:
"The Animal Cracker Burlesque Circus,
Jacksonville Beach, Florida, August 30, 1930
Madame Currier, Promoter, Producer and
Director /Mrs. Martha P. Baton, Assistant"
After a cursory review of the museum's
collection looking for any mention of
Madame Currier, Mrs. Baton or the Animal
Cracker Burlesque circus, the archivist
decided to Google the names and came out
with some very interesting facts.
In the late 1880s, animal-shaped crackers
called "Animals" were imported from
England to the United States. It was in 1902

that animal crackers officially became
"Barnum's Animals" and evoked the familiar
circus theme of Barnum and Bailey's Circus.
On the other hand, a play called Animal
Crackers opened on Broadway on October
23, 1928 at the 44th Street Theatre. The
production starred the four Marx Brothers
and it was so successful that a movie fol-
lowed in 1930 with the principal leads
reprising their roles from the stage.
The animals in the museum photographs
are reminiscent of the early animal crackers
while the name of the circus is reminiscent
of the Marx Brothers.
Do any of these facts relate to the muse-
um's circus photos? Can you help the
museum unravel this mystery? If so, please
contact Taryn by email at archivist@bm-
hc.com or call 241-5657.

Some suds, Mr. President?

Which presidential candidate would you like to have
a beer with?
As many Florida voters cast their ballots for their
party preference, another vote was taking place, one
that has nothing to do with economic policy or views
on Iraq.
The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA)
has launched an online, non-scientific survey for drink-
ing-age persons to answer the question, "Which of the
presidential candidates would you like to have a beer
with in 2008?"
Throughout the primary season, voters of legal drink-
ing age can cast their "ballot" at www.whodoyouwant-
tohaveabeerwith.com or www.nbwa.org.
The site shows in real-time the percentage of votes
that each candidate has received, as well as video of
interviews with voters in the early primary states about
how they selected which candidates they would like to
have a brew with.
"With all of the rigors of a campaign attack ads,
phone calls, direct mail Americans knpw sometimes it
just comes down to who you want to have a beer with,"
said NBWA President Craig Purser.
"We hope this campaign reminds voters that at the
end of the day, while issues are very important, so is
conversation, civility and character. Having a beer with
someone represents getting to know someone better,
and that's what the campaign season is all about get-
ting to know these candidates better."
In addition to being an election year, 2008 marks the
75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition and the

beginning of effective, state-based alcohol regulation
under the 21st Amendment.
Today, Americans have a choice of more than 13,000
labels of beer from coast to coast distributed through a
state-based system of alcohol regulation.

Panthers bask in glow of another crown

It's becoming routine but
a routine that never gets old
for players.
The Nease High girls soccer
team wrapped up its fourth
state title in the past seven
seasons last Thursday night
with a 3-0 win
over Merritt
Island at
Stadium in Fort
Lauderdale. For
some Panthers,
those on the
2005-6 squads
that won back-
to-back crowns,
it was their third
time leaving
South Florida as
a state champion.
"Even 24 hours later I can't
describe how it felt," said sen-
ior Lisa Heise who watched
the Nease boys team punch its
ticket to Fort Lauderdale in
last Friday's regional final. "I
think once we got the goals
that we needed to get to have
a little breathing room, from
there we knew [we were going

to win]. We just stayed posi-
tive and it's an amazing feel-
Heise, who scored two goals
and added an assist in the
championship game, put her
side on the board about 10
minutes in when she volleyed
in a rebound off a corner kick.
Merritt Island goalkeeper
m Houston batted
away Jessica
Stephens' boot
from the cor-
ner, but Heise
collected the
deflection and
buried it into
the back of the
"Scoring in
the first 10
minutes was a
confidence boost but it was
still a 1-0 game and anything
could have happened," said
Freshman forward Jackie
Hellett made it 2-0 when she
scored off a throw-in 35 min-
utes into the contest. Heise
picked up the assist.
Heise sealed the deal in the
game's 72nd minute when she

headed in a free kick to make
it an insurmountable 3-0
Panthers lead.
For her title game efforts,
along with a pair of goals in
last Wednesday's state semifi-
nal victory over Fort Myers
Cypress Lake, Heise was
named MVP of the Class 4A
state tournament.
"I really couldn't ask for
anything more," she said.
"State championship and MVP
in my senior season. But real-
ly, it was the entire team. I
just credit all of my team-
mates. It was something we
did together."
Panthers head coach Dave
Silverberg got a glimpse of the

squad during its 2-0 victory
over Gulf Breeze in the other
semifinal last Wednesday.
"They looked very strong,"
Silverberg said. "I wondered
how we were going to deal
with them, but I think getting
that early goal really made us
believe that we could do it."
With his fourth state cham-
pionship in seven years of
coaching at Nease, Silverberg
put his stamp on one of the
school's most prolific dynas-

"Dave is the best coach I've
ever had by far," said Heise,
who transferred to Nease from
Newsome High in Lithia, near
Tampa, following her sopho-
more year. "He's a big reason
we won."
Silverberg guided Nease to
its first state championship in
2002 when the Panthers
topped Gulf Breeze 2-1 to win
the Class 2A title. In 2005, the
Panthers moved up to Class
4A and earned a 2-1 decision
over Chiles, in penalty kicks
(3-1) to win their second
In 2006, forward Stacey
Hanburry scored the only goal
in a 1-0 victory over Merritt
Island to win a third champi-
. This year Hanburry is
among the seniors celebrating
a third state title in four years
at Nease. There are 14 seniors
on the Panthers and Heise
called last week's victory a sto-
rybook finish to their high
school careers.
"It's the perfect ending," she
said. "To go out as champions
is just amazing. You just can't
do better than that."

goal in the regional semifinals Jan. 29. Heise had a pair of goals
in last Thursday's state championship game in Fort Lauderdale.

An outstanding week for party boat fishing

rTFhe party boat bottom
fishing was outstanding
again last week. Each trip
aboard the "Mayport Princess"
resulted in coolers and
stringers filled with up with 35
snapper and lots of grouper
weighing up to 23 pounds.
One angler had a scamp
grouper weighing 14pounds.
Mark Timmons weighed up
two big grouper and a snapper
to go with his cooler full of
beeliners. Inez Higgenbotham
cleaned a 16-pound snapper
and her daughter took pictures
of a 10-pound snapper.
Randy Carver came off the
"Princess" with a 16- and a 17-
pound grouper last Friday
afternoon and George Lackey's
catch included a pair of snap-
per, a king and lots of beelin-
ers. '
Anglers on the "King
Neptune" have also been keep-
ing the cleaning table busy.
Dozens of snapper, grouper,
flounder, triggerfish, sea bass
and plenty of beeliners have
been caught on each trip.
Jetty guide Fred Morrow on
his "Little Yvonne" last



Monday with Gary and Sandy
Poletta pulled in seven
sheepshead along the rocks.
They had one that weighed
seven pounds and another
that weighed eight pounds.
On Tuesday, Capt. Fred, with
his guest Cynthia Eicher, put
live fiddlers down near the
same spot and caught 11
sheepshead including a seven
and a nine and a half pounder.
. Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
"Enterprise" last Thursday
with Lyndon Shultz and Mike
Brown, caught six big reds, a
shdepshead and a flounder

fishing near the end of the
south jetties.
Capt. Kevin Faver, fishing
out of St. Augustine with Jay
Reister and his son Hayden,
caught 30 reds last Friday a lit-
tle south of the Bridge of
Lions. Jigs and shrimp were
their most productive bait.
Capt. Buteh Garvin and
John Campbell used small
pieces of fresh dead shrimp off
the tip of the south jetties last
Friday and caught 35 ringtails
weighing up to three pounds.
Earlier in the week, Butch and
Rusty Borthwick iced down 40
good-sized ringtails.
Jacksonville Beach Pier fish-
ing picked up considerably last
week. Lots of whiting and
some good-sized sheepshead
were pulled up from around
the pilings. Doug Akins took
home six bull whiting, James
McCall cleaned 15 big bull
whiting and Scott Jackson and
Scott McBride caught several
sheepshead weighing up to six
Larry Finch, Bruce Boyer and
Bobby McMillian used live fid-
dlers at the jetties last
Thursday to catch 45

sheepshead. On a trip to
Titusville last Tuesday and
Wednesday, Larry caught his
limit of pompano each day.
Some weighed up to three
Capt. Jerry Moulton, with
Bobby Grubbs and Kevin
Harris, fished from the
"Another Tangle" last Saturday
and had all the action they
could handle. They anchored
near B.R. and using Spanish
sardines for bait, easily caught
their limit of snapper.
Capt. Bear Croft and Jack
Ross on the "Bear" caught six
speedy blackfin tuna weighing
up to 25 pounds.
Willy Ulmer and his friend
Louise made the shad trip
again last weekend and caught
15 not too far from Lake
Monroe in the river. A good
day was made even better
when Louise caught a six-
pound flounder trolling a
spoon just minutes before
they ha decided to leave.
A very unusual catch for
this part of the river, of
course. At the boat ramp they
had to show the flounder
before anyone would believe

Scott McBride used live fiddlers from the Jacksonville Beach
Pier to catch these sheepshead over the weekend.

Capt. William Goodling,
from his "Venus Baby" with
Sandy Goodling, Mike
Greenstein and Chris Rooney,

last Saturday fished the T.W.
bottom for three grouper, four
snapper, several sea bass and
their limit of beeliners.

For example, some financial
markets have deteriorated to the
point where businesses and
households are curtailing
But that pain could be your
gain in the form of a refi-
nanced mortgage.
Signals of recession spurred
the Federal Reserve to cut short-
term interest rates creating a
potential boon for some home-
owners interested in refinanc-
ing their mortgages. Since fall,
mortgage interest rates have
Recent Fed cuts made
lenders' phones ring like crazy.
The number of refinancing
applications has spiked 92 per-
cent since November, according
to the Mortgage Bankers
Anyone who has bought a
home in the last three years
might benefit from refinancing.
Fixed rates for 30-year mort-
gages have been dropping since
the holidays not to all-time
lows. but still to historically
attractive levels.

Pay particular attention if you
have an adjustable rate that's on
the verge of resetting. Now may
be the time to convert it to-a
fixed-rate loan, which may pro-
vide more comfort and peace of
mind during an unsettled eco-
nomic period.
Those carrying two loans, so-
called 80-20 loans or interest-
only loans also stand to benefit,
even if their new rate drops by
as little as one-quarter of a per-
centage point.
Refinancing, though, might
not be for everyone.
If you have a subprime loan,
considered a riskier proposition
for brokers, you may find it dif-
ficult to get a modification. It
costs nothing to ask.
Also, those planning to move
or sell in the next three to four
years may not reap a cost bene-
fit by refinancing, so do the
math calculating closing costs
as well as how long it would
take to break even. For instance,
it might cost $4,000 to refi-
nance a $250,000 mortgage. If
your monthly payments
dropped by $80 with your new
rate, it would take more than
four years to break even.
B a n k r a t e c o m
m/calc_vml/refi/refi.asp> has a
refinance calculator that helps
you compute whether the trans-

action works in your favor.
Here are some guideposts to
help you on your journey.
Know your current mort-
gage: What are the fees and
penalties and are;any triggered
by paying off the loan early? If
you have an adjustable rate
mortgage (ARM), how often will
it adjust and when will it
adjust? These are some factors
to review when weighing when
a refinance is viable. Consult
your paperwork, lender or
attorney to understand terms.
Check your credit: Review
your credit score and do what
you can get to get your credit
score as high as possible. During
the subprime fiasco of last year,
it was common for institutions
to make loans to people who
had scores in the low 600s.
Those days are gone. Mortgage
brokers report that scores need
to be near 680, maybe even as
high as 720, for a loan to work.
* Shop, shop, shop: Your
options can very from broker to
broker, so get online and see
what's available. Request all
information all costs and fees
- in writing. Ask questions if
you don't understand. When
you've found the rate you want,
ask for a formal lock-in letter.

Emory Instant Air Has a New Name:

One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating

... "If You Didn't Know us Before, We

Invite You to Get to Know Us Now"

One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating. located at 1198
'Mayport Road, suite 11, is a family owned and operated busi-
ness with a history of serving the Beaches since 1981. The
business was formerly known as Emory Instant Air and since
it's inception had one singular mission: To provide customers
with the highest quality service, however, this company has
taken their legendary service to an even higher level of serv-
ice excellence. How? One Hour Air's focus is all about "time"
and how important and valuable it is to you. While "on-time
service" is a common phrase, it is generally not practiced.
Together, One Hour Air and every member of the team will
change this reality by dedicating their entire philosophy to
providing on-time service, or as their new mission states,
Always On Time ... Or You Don't Pay a Dime!'
Eddy explains, "You know how you call a H\AC technician;
then wait days, weeks, for him or her to show up?
Flusttating, isn't it? Well, we think wasting your time is a
crime. We're One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating Always
On Time ... Or You Don't Pa\ A Dime!' It's our way of letting
you know that we do what we say we'll do. \\'hen we say we'll
be there, we'll be there because Always On Time ... Or You
Don't Pay A Dime!'"
"We know when you need us." Dee says, "you really need
us. \Ve also know your time is valuable. So if we're late for an
appointment, your repair is free." That's a strong incentive for
the skilled professionals at One Hour Air to get it right. They
do get it right where timing is concerned, and they get it right
where the work is concerned.
"We're proud of the top-quality, professional services we
offer our customers," says Eddy. "We guarantee our work and
we are a UWIN elite service provider." UWIN is a third party
consumer. agency that allows elite home service contractors.
to provide an extra level of protection and peace of mind to
homeowners. UWIN's goal is 100% Customer Satisfaction.
When you do business with a UWIN endorsed contractor you
will have a technician working in your home who has been
drug tested, background checked, and properly trained. "Our
company agrees to the UWIN Code of Ethics and is proud to
wear the UWIN seal on the uniforms." He adds, "In addition
to our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee we're equally proud of
our Straightforward PricingT, and our on-time guarantee

bonuses that few air conditioning contractors are able to

"A lot of you have been asking about our son land partner
in this business and why you haven't seen him lately. Craig
is now in Kuwait serving in the Navy Reserves, .and we look
forward to having him home in the spring," says dad, Eddy.
Craig is on his second deployment, having already served in
Iraq. He has made a very favorable impression with the cus-
tomers and he is looking forward to returning to serve them.
"Because our professional technicians are the best in the
business," Dee says, "over 98 percent of our first-time cus-
tomers become long-term repeat customers." You get nation-
al professional standards paired with local owners who care
about you and this community.

Dee and Eddy are offering a Precision Tune-Up a 14 point
service inspection now for just $79. "Let me share with you
what to expect during your service visit," explains Eddy,
"Because your time is valuable, we will send a fully trained
technician to your home in a truck stocked with thousands of
parts. We even call it our "Warehouse on Wheels", which
means that the service can be done right then and there while
we are at your home. When my technician arrives it is like the
doctor coming for a visit he will be professional, courteous,
and Always On Time ... Or You Don't Pay A Dime!"
