PV High grid finalists are winners


by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
A high school coach with
four state championships to
his credit, a junior college
coach with one national title
and a former professional
football player are among
seven finalists for the head
football coaching position at
Ponte Vedra High School.
All seven candidates have at
least 10 -years of coaching
experience and all but one has
been a head coach with state


playoff experience.
"We have seven finalists
that we intend to interview
over the next two weeks,"
Ponte Vedra High athletic
director Gene Baker said in an
e-mail to the' Ponte Vedra
Leader last week.
Baker said some candidates
will be interviewed in person,
others only by phone.
He asked that the seven
finalists not be made public
until the interview process is
completed in the next two


weeks.
"We don't want to eliminate
good candidates on privacy
issues," added Baker, who did
furnish capsule summaries of
the candidates at the paper's
request.
If there's anything certain
about who will be the inaugu-
ral Sharks head coach it's that
he will undoubtedly be a win-'
ner.
Of the seven finalists, one
has won four state champi-
onships in 14 years, while


another has three state titles
in 21 years and is a charter
member of a state sports hall
of fame.
One finalist with ties to the
University of Florida is cur-
rently a coordinator for a
NCAA Division 1-AA team.
A finalist who played three
years of pro football and
coached for one helped a high
school team to four state
crowns in 10 years as that
team's defensive coordinator.
The candidate also was a


three-year starter for a NCAA
Division I team that achieved
a No. 1 ranking.
Four of the candidates have
either junior college or small
college coaching experience.
One began .his coaching
career as a high school assis-
tant in Florida. One is a former
graduate assistant for e
Gators.
One of the finalists with
junior college coaching expe-
rience is 162-55 overall as a
high school coach and has

Recalled burritos

cut from schools


by GRAY ROHRER
STAFF WRITER

The St. Johns County
School District pulled a burri-
to product from school
menus Tuesday, responding
to warnings from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
that the products may con-
tain recalled beef from a
California company.
California-based
Westland/Hallmark Meat Co.
was ordered to recall 143 mil-
lion pounds of beef Sunday
- the largest beef recall in
U.S. history after video
was released showing inhu-
mane treatment of cows that
were unable to walk.
Cows that can't walk are
more 'likely to contaminate
beef with salmonella and E.
coli, which can be transferred
during unclean slaughter


processes, according to pub-
lished reports.
Even though the USDA
ordered the recall Sunday,
Elizabeth Binninger, food
services director for the St.
Johns County School District,
said the burrito item was
added Tuesday to the list of
items that might contain the
recalled beef.
"The USDA was aware of
the situation last week and
told schools to put a hold on
beef products [connected to
the recall],"' Binninger said
Tuesday in a telephone inter-
view.
She said the burrito is an "a
la carte" menu item and was
available for purchase by stu-
dents until it was pulled from
the menu Tuesday.
None of the other beef
products in the School
District's inventory are con-
nected to the recall, she said.

St. Johns County commis-
sioners took the first step
toward creating a new
method of paying for fire
services Tuesday, adopting a,
measure that would allow
them to impose an assess-
ment for fire protection
instead of using property
taxes to fund that service.
The proposed switch from
property taxes to an assess-


ment is an attempt to make
funding for fire services more
equitable. Due to rising home
costs and a state cap on
increases in taxable values,
similar-sized homes in the
same neighborhood could be
paying vastly different
amounts for the same service.
Under the new method, simi-
lar houses would be assessed
an equal amount.
The resolution passed
Tuesday by commissioners,

Visiting college team gives

I w,, clinic to PV Lacrosse Club


by CHUCK ADAIMS
STAFF WRITER '
Before four college, lacrosse
teams faced off for a cause in two
separate games Saturday at
Fletcher High, one of the teams
gave a clinic for the Ponte Vedra
Predator's girls lacrosse team' at
Landrum Middle School.
The clinic, held on the Landrum
fields, featured the women's
lacrosse team from North
Carolina's Pfeiffer University, who
defeated the first-year team from
Rollins College of Winter Park,
Fla., in the women's half of "Face
Off for a Cause."
The Saturday event, which start-
ed with a men's lacrosse game in
what was billed as a "grudge
match" between NCAA Division 1
rivals University of Delaware and
University of Maryland Baltimore
County (UMBC), was a benefit for
the Wounded Warrior Project,
which helps seriously wounded
service personnel.


"We did this two years ago,"
Pfeiffer coach Julian Domenech
said at Friday's clinic for the Lady
Predators, girls in grades four
through eight who are members of
the Ponte Vedra Lacrosse Club..
"Our kids loved it," Domenech
said of the previous clinic. "It was
a great experience."
Pfeiffer was back in Ponte Vedra
Beach because of Domenech's
friendship with Jimmy Dotsikas,
one of the Predators' coaches.
Domenech was a senior at Pfeiffer
when Dotsikas was a freshman.
"We've been friends for 15
years," said Domenech, who was
in the Dotsikas' wedding.
Once Pfeiffer got a place in the
"Face Off" event, which was con-
ceived by Nease boys lacrosse
coach Jack Francis, Domenech
called Dotsikas to say the teams
would be back, Domenech said.
The clinic involved Pfeiffer play-
ers instructing Predator youngsters
at different stations.
"They can teach the girls how to

Top 10 boat names revealed and

what they say about the owners
Boat names can reveal much about the personality,
lifestyle, passions or experiences of a boat owner. For
2007, the BoatU.S. list of. Top Ten Most Popular Boat
Names is particularly revealing:
1) Black Pearl: The name of a fast, stealthy and intim-
idating fictional ship from the Disney Pirates of the
Caribbean films, a recreational boat with this moniker
was probably named by the kids.-
2) Liberty: A patriotic name that first appeared on the
Top Ten List just after 9-11, the owner of this vessel is
clearly passionate about the freedoms enjoyed in the U.S.
3) Second Wind: Perhaps this boat owner has had a
life changing experience and feels that their boat now
gives them a second lease on life.
4) Amazing Grace: It could be that this boat name
borrowed from a hymn provides the boat owner with a
new spiritual outlet. '

5) Aquaholic: This name illustrates a boater's chronic
love for the waterways. This boat is probably the first one
out of the slip in the morning and the last one back in at
the end of the day.
6) Knot on Call: Perhaps named by a boater in a pro-
fessional field or industry with non-traditional work
hours, this boat' name affirms a desire break away from
work pressures.
7) Second Chance: See #3, Second Wind.
8) Wanderlust: Defined as "A very strong or irre-
sistible impulse to travel," this boat owner clearly has a
passion to cruise and explore the waterways.
9) The Dog House: Being in one (Dog House) isn't
necessarily bad for this boat owner as their vessel likely
provides a "walled-off" escape away from the distractions
of everyday life.
10) Carpe Diem or Seas the Day: This boat owner
likely believes that boating allows them to enjoy life at
its fullest.
The BoatU.S. Boat Graphics service offers a free library
of over 8,000 boat names and also allows boaters to eas-
ily select, custom design and preview boat names online
without having to pay up front. For more information,
visit the online service at.http://www.BoatUS.coin/boat-

If you are having trouble getting into a
rental property, a new website might have your
name.
A website has been created to help landlords
see if a potential renter is a bad tenant.
The site, www.donotrentto.com, offers infor-
mation all posted by previous landlords, who
can post the information for free.
Accessing the information will cost land-
lords $14.99.
However, a scan of the site shows no way
that a tenant can find out what a landlord had
to say or contest it.
When posting tenant information, landlords
are allowed to enter any comments they feel
will best describe their experience with a cer-
tain renter. Members will be able to contact
other members via email to help verify certain
tenant information.


the sea

New


name


for an


old site

Doug Liao, parent of a
Duval County Public
Schools' student, has been
recognized for his donation
of the web domain
www.duvalschools.org,
which was launched
February 1. It replaced the
school system's former site,
www.dreamsbegin here.org,
which drew criticism from
some.
Liao secured the name pri-
vately and donated it to the
school system following
public debate about seeking
a better moniker for the web-
site.


According to the site:
Q. Is posting this type of tenant information
legal?
A. Yes! We've verified the legality of this with
our attorney, and he informed us that this is
absolutely legal. He indicated that as long as
the information being entered by the land-
lords/property managers is truthful and correct,
then there is no problem with entering your.
issues you've had with a certain tenant. That
being said, he made the point of saying, make
sure you have documentation supporting your
issues with a certain tenant.
Q. Will I be anonymous if I post tenant infor-
mation?
A. Yes, you will be anonymous. The only col-
umn that will be viewable to members is your
email address you'll enter. We have landlords
and property managers enter their email address
so that members can email each other with ques-
tions on a previous tenant, if needed.

It's Home Improvement Time


Spring always brings its share of surpris-
es. As the early flowers blanket Southern
landscapes, homeowners quickly discover
cleanup projects in every direction includ-
ing up and down. Besides the obvious
need to clear gutters of leaves and dirt,
expansion and time often loosen trays
from buildings pointing out the need for
repair or replacement in order to keep
them from overflowing onto rooftops
(where shingles may have loosened or
blown away). Outdoor drains and window
wells need to be cleared of debris and
made ready for Spring rains, also.
Inspection of the seasonal toll will need
to include wear and tear on cement,

Now is a perfect time for washing win-

tilation.
Floors need refinishing? Carpets worn,
or dirty? Decision time is all the time
when you own or rent a home, and there
are so many choices and so many product
claims. How can you keep up with it all?
Whether it is time to change the water
filters, the outdoor dryer vent, or most
important of all-the kitchen hood vent,
planning can make the difference
between doing a lot of stuff, and staying
on target with routine home maintenance
tasks.
A homeowner's annual journal is a good
starting place. Which projects got major
attention last year and can perhaps be
moved down a little on the list? What was
the replacement date on the last furnace
filter? Did you remember to reset the
humidifier control for the weather
change?
When managing the family home let
nothing slip through the cracks can come
back to bite you. Write it down. Make
notes of any concerns or planned
improvements. Remember to check for


city, state, or county ordinances that
might affect your project.
Keep your home and family safe with
regular attention to housekeeping details.
Replace smoke detector batteries on a
strict schedule. Repair steps, stair treads or
handrails as soon as problems are discov-
ered.
Planning a new home or major renova-
tion? Compare the latest designs and
innovative materials. Dare to dream as
you check out all the possibilities. Even
the most sought after building materials
get better and more affordable with cur-
rent technologies.
Whether you need to replace the deck,
plany new trees or re-plumb the whole
house, spring is the perfect time to get
started.

Owners of proposed Wal-Mart ask NB for more time


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Owners of the Neptune Beach
property where a Wal-Mart was
proposed have requested that
the national retailer reconsider
its lease termination and are ask-
ing the city for a six- month per-
mit extension.
Attorney Stephen Bullock,
who represents the Lakeshore
Village property owners,
requested that the city consider
a six month extension to the
final development order which
expires in April for a proposed,
Wal-Mart at 630 Atlantic
Boulevard while Lakeshore and
Wal-Mart .continue discussions,
according to a Feb. 18 letter.
"Lakeshore has requested
Wal-Mart to rescind its Notice of
Termination on various legal
grounds. The request is current-
ly pending," Bullock said in the
letter.
"Wal-Mart and Lakeshore are
continuing to discuss various
issues and options and hopeful-
ly will come to terms for a final
resolution within the next 30
days," he said.
Bullock also said that because
of the financial resources spent,
additional time is needed for
submitting building plans pur-
suant to the development order.
Although / Wal-Mart
announced it was terminating
its lease agreement, the compa-


ny has until April to submit
plans to the city before its per-
mit expires. After April, an
'


ordinance that limits shopping
centers to 60,000 square feet is
effective and the developers

however, merely signalled
their intent to create the
assessment later this year, to
be imposed in the fiscal year
beginning Oct. 1.
"This is basically a resolu-
tion that informs the proper-
ty appraiser and tax collector,
that you may use this
method," Camille Tharp, a
representative of
Government Services Group,
an organization analyzing
the assessment, told commis-
sioners.
Tharp told commissioners
the resolution does not obli-
gate them to impose the
assessment. Public hearings
and workshops will be held
before the budget is passed in
September to gauge public
opinion on the issue and
establish assessment rates.
One county resident told
commissioners she objected
to what she considers a new
tax.
"A fee is a tax. Semantics
cannot change the facts," B.J.
Kalaidi of St. Augustine said..
Commission chair Tom
Manuel of Ponte Vedra Beach

rect action by the board to
get more information, on it,"
Manuel said.

The Leader's Opinion


Tax relief must


accompany any


new service fee

A fire services fee will be assessed on property own-
ers in St. Johns County, commissioners agreed
Tuesday.
The county developed the plan as part of planning
its first budget year post-Amendment 1.
County officials maintain that an assessment will
be more equitable than a property tax for fire services
because everyone would pay the same assessment
regardless of when a home was purchased.
Currently, the taxes paid by neighbors can vary
drastically because of the state's long-standing limits
on increasing taxable value on homesteaded proper-
ty.
Proponents insist the fee, levied in 90 other com-
munities statewide, is fair because anyone calling for
fire service gets the same response so, they say, it is
reasonable that all pay the same.
Equity is not the only argument put forth in favor
of the fee.
County officials said the fee" will allow the county
to use bonds to buy apparatus and other materials for
firefighters, rather than relying on operating funds.
Emergency medical services and 911 emergency
response will continue to be funded by property
taxes, and no fees are proposed for either vital public
service.
Amendment 1 opponents maintained that tax relief
would be quickly replaced by a flurry of fees. We are
concerned that the fire services fee not be the first
flurry in a revenue-raising storm that will leave tax-
payers soaked. If such a fee is the best course, then
taxpayers should see attendant relief in their proper-
ty tax bill.
The county commission chairman has pledged that
the new method of paying for fire service will allow
the general fund to be reduced by the amount of the
assessment.
Following through on that promise and passing
the savings onto taxpayers- will be essential to tax-
& payer support. I

I guess the elected officials in

prices increased 12-15 percent
per year and local government
enjoyed the resulting tax bene-
fits. They were surprised when
the referendum passed by 65
percent of the voter.
We put pavers at crossings, re-,
designed the 5-way intersection
at City Hall, purchased a clock
that doesn't work and hired a
future Police Chief 3-1/2 years
before the current Police Chief
retires.
In the February 2008 newslet-
ter, our Mayor wrote:
"Tax reform has to be taken
into account as the current
efforts by the state government
will restrict our ability to meet
the pressures of the inflation on
annual budgets. We, the
Commission, are all concerned
about the State forcing budget


cuts."
At the same time the City
Manager announced that our
building official is taking a job
in Grand Cayman.
He said, we have "several
good applications." However,
the city is working towards
-finalizing a contract with a pri-
vate engineering company, to
take over until the position is
filled. He anticipates using the
company's services for 30 to 60
days. The contract is for three
days per week for $9,000 a
month.
Nine thousand per month
divided by 12 days is $750 per
day or $93.75 per hour. In two
months that will amount to
$18,000.
If the City Manager is right
about the "good applicants,"
then why can't we select a new
building official before Mr.
Huffstettler leaves. That could
save us. $18,000.

Congress has a duty



to exercise its muscle


You might not have
noticed, given the
media's fascination
with the presidential cam-
paign, but there are 435 U.S.
House contests and 35 U.S.
Senate races taking place this
year. These are important
elections, for even more rea-
sons than you might be hear-
ing about. Indeed, unless I
miss my guess, the candi-
dates and press in those
many contests are barely
talking about one of the
most important issues we
face: the role of Congress
itself.
The litany of matters worry-
ing Americans and absorbing
the attention of congressional,
candidates is, of course, long
and complex: the economy,
the. wars-_ in Iraq and
Afghanistan, the challenges
posed by Iran, the state of
American public education,
climate change, a long-term
energy policy, immigration..
Not surprisingly, many voters
want to hear how Congress
can protect them from finan-
cial ruin or how candidates
propose to keep America
strong. They're less interested
in how Congress functions.
Yet unless Congress learns
how to reassert its constitu-
tional responsibility to be the
President's equal in policy-
making, the progress voters
yearn to see on all those issues
will be much harder to come
by. This is why, as you listen to
the various House and Senate
candidates campaigning for
your vote, I hope you'll pay
attention not only to what
they say about the economy or
Iraq, but also to how they talk
about Congress.
It's been the habit both of
incumbents and their chal-
lengers in recent years to run
for Congress by running
against the Congress. They
criticize its profligate spending
or its do-nothing ways or its
shoddy ethics or the undue
influence of money and lobby-
ists. These are all choice tar-
gets, and they have their place
in the campaign debate, but
you have to wonder how long
this denigration of Congress
can continue before Americans

lose their faith in representa-
tive democracy.
There's another path, and
that's to recognize that
Congress is flawed but that, as
an institution, it needs
upholding and shoring up, not
stigmatizing. A robust, func-
tional, and assertive Congress
is crucial to making our system
work.
It needs.to be able to keep an ,
eye on the executive branch,
advance an agenda based on
its members' understanding of
what the country needs, police
its members' behavior, be the
place where the cross-currents
roiling the American commu-
nity meet in constructive
debate, and in general play the
muscular role our Founders
envisioned for it in policy-
making.
It cannot do any of these
things if it is filled with politi-
cians who are adept at making
themselves look good and the
Congress look bad, or who care
little about its institutional
powers.
I've noticed something inter-
esting as I have moved around
the country in recent months:
a lot of people seem to have
caught on to this. They express
disappointment that Congress
for decades has allowed the
White House to doininate it.
They fret that the expansion of
presidential power sought by
the Bush administration has
gone too far, and are bewil-
dered by Congress' timidity in
pushing its own powers.
This is an extremely promis-
ing development if it trans-
lates into an electorate willing
to look carefully at how con-
gressional candidates propose


to set Congress back on track,
and it begins to wake up
Congress as a whole.
For make no mistake, this is
not just a matter of political
theory or a topic for a good
speech on the importance of
constitutional checks and bal-
ances. It has to be practiced in
the day-to-day workings of
Capitol Hill.
If you ask candidates
whether they are in favor of
reasserting congressional
authority, the answer will
almost certainly be yes. But
that's not enough. What you
want to know is whether
they'll be aggressive in shaping
the federal budget; whether
they believe Congress has a
strong voice, along with the
President's, in declaring war or
pursuing military intervention
overseas; whether they'll work
with their colleagues to devel-
op and fight for Congress's
oiyp agenda, and .nppsyp y
respond, to the, President';
whether they see that getting
Congress's ethical house in
order is crucial to building its
institutional strength, not just
a matter of political expedien-
cy; whether they understand
that Congress must be a truly
deliberative and consensus-
building body; not a place
where the majority ramrods its
wishes through without
debate; and whether they
understand that violating
longstanding and fair proce-
dure by passing, sprawling,
multi-topic omnibus bills, for
instance merely hands the
President more power.
If they get all this, even if
you disagree on a few policy
issues, I hope you'll consider
voting for them. If they're
oblivious and seem uncon-
cerned about Congress' loss of
power, then it's worth asking
whether they really under-
stand our constitutional sys-
tem of separate and co-equal
branches of government and
the need to revive Congress's
vigor and dynamism.

More letters to the editor:.

We can force government to be responsible


To the editor:
Floridians nqpd tax relief! And it looks like
we might finally get it. The TBRC, which is
the Taxation and. Budget Reform Commission,
meets once every 20 years. The board is able
to pick any issue they want and include it on
the 2008 Florida ballot. One of the proposals
they are considering is a Taxpayer Protection
Amendment. Last Monday a subcommittee of
the TBRC gave unanimous approval for the
Taxpayer Protection Amendment to be passed
on to the.TBRC.
The Taxpayer Protection Amendment would
require that any new increase in taxes or fees
must first meet voter approval. This amend-
ment would require voter approval on all State
taxation as well as on local County and City


levels. This amendment would force our gov-
ernment to work within their own budget,
just like we have to do.
We have a unique opportunity coming up
here in Florida, especially with the TPA getting
such a great reception by the subcommittee.
Finally there is something that we can do to
force our governments to become more fiscal-
ly responsible.
If indeed this amendment is put on the
2008 ballot, all of us should vote yes! We can-
not allow our government to suck more and
more money out of Florida's economy, not to
mention our pockets, via high taxation and
spending.

You've.got to give the Sports'
Illustrated people points for being
honest.
It's February, you see. In many
parts of the country, it's bitter
cold. The Super Bowl is over and
baseball is yet to begin. We men
don't know what to do.
Our minds unoccupied, we lack
direction. We dwell randomly on
negative things -- our post-holiday
flabbiness, old girlfriends who did-
n't work out and, for some, girl-
friends who did.
But one thing -- the smile of a
beautiful, scantily clad woman --
can make us forget our woes. SI
has been helping us forget since it
published its first swimsuit issue
44 years ago. But this year it hit
the mother lode.
The cover features Marisa Miller,
a 29-year-old stunner who cut her
teeth modeling for Victoria's
Secret. As her curviness spills off
the page, she gazes at us with
angelic calm. She makes us feel
like everything is going to be all.
right. And maybe it is going to be
all right.
Surely you know the origin of
the swimsuit issue. The editors
came up with the idea to boost
magazine sales during winter.
It's been driving feminists batty
from the start. They say it exploits
women, and it does. They say it is
wrong for men to view women as
mere objects, and it is. But what
angers them most is that the cover
models often go on to fame and
fortune because they are gorgeous.
Then they marry a multimil-
lionaire, eventually divorce him,
and live happily ever after on a
co iderable pile lfdough
'The eyvution 9,fJe swisuit
issue is also worth noting. The
early issues were simple and mild.
But in the late 1970s -- thank you,
Cheryl Tiegs things really started
heating up. The swimsuits got
scantier and the models more
beautiful.
That trend continued until the
late 1990s, when something went
terribly wrong. The 1998 issue fea-
tured bony women with frowns
on their faces. It had more feature
stories than photos -- such as
interviews with beautiful female
meteorologists who were covered
up with more clothing than a
mannequin at Macy's.
But in the past few years, Sports
Illustrated has been getting back
to the basics. This year's issue can
be summed up in two words: yow-
sa!
It features 19 of the world's most
glamorous supermodels pictured
"in visually dynamic photo
spreads, all set in unique and exot-
ic locations."
It features many body-painting
photos -- the fine art of painting
swimsuits right onto the models'
skin. I tried getting a job like that
once, but couldn't afford the
$1.000 a week they wanted.
There is a feature on Russian-
born beauties for the simple rea-
son that no magazine ever in the
history of mankind ever went
wrong featuring Russian-born
beauties in scanty duds.
The Sports Illustrated people
spent 10 days with supermodel
Bar Refaeli in her native Israel.
She's stunning and not wearing
very much. I'm sure that feature
will endear us even morewith our
pals in Iran.
Another feature depicts NFL
cheerleaders wearing even less
than usual. And let's not forget
race-car driver Danica Patrick.
NASCAR fans will sum up her
beauty in three words: yow-ow-sa!
In an odd way, in a nutty cul-
ture like ours, the swimsuit issue is
a good sign. SI is admitting that
the swimsuit issue is a disgustingly
honest cultural icon -- that its pur-
pose is to objectify women
because boorish men will pay
good money to ogle them.
They're admitting that gorgeous
women have always exploited
beauty for bucks -- that they've
always used it to part men from
their dough. In these confusing
times, in which we pretend men
and women are the same, there's
something refreshingly primitive
about that.
Still, things are confusing. Did
you know more women buy the
annual swimsuit issue than men?
Must be the Will Ferrell photos.

Mary Agnes Gearhart


Mary Agnes Gearhart, 85, of
Ponte Vedra, peacefully passed
away Wednesday, Feb. 13.
Mary Agnes was born in
Crestline, Ohio, and raised in
New Brighton, Pa., where she
met and married her husband
of 63 years, Col. James
Gearhart (Ret. USAF). As a
career military wife Mary
Agnes found herself stationed
across the United States and
around the world, yet found
time to raise three children,
volunteer nurse, teach school
and pick up and move every
two to four years. Upon retire-
ment in 1989, Jim and Mary
Agnes moved from the
Washington, D.C., area to
Ponte Vedra Beach, and settled
into a grand life of leisure and


travel.
Her loving heart, warm per-
sonality, wry sense of humor
and distinctive flair were
noticeable to all those who
knew and loved her. Her pas-
sion for travel, albeit late in life
and subsequent to several
health adventures, was
unmatched. Mary Agnes, after
the age of 75, traveled Europe,
Alaska, South America, The
Rockies, The Mississippi River,
and culminated in white water
rafting down the Snake River
just last summer. Mary Agnes
had a great zest for life and an
immense appreciation for its
natural beauty.
Mary Agnes is survived by
her husband Jim, sister Helen
Kline (Dutton, Ala.) children


Patricia (husband Thomas
Metz Jr., Boulder, Colo.),
Kathleen (husband Louis
Pugliese, Millersville, Md.) and'
Jim Gearhart Jr. (Ponte Vedra).
In addition Mary Agnes leaves
one grandchild, Thomas Metz
III (Santa Monica, Calif.) and
many nieces, nephews and
their families.
A Memorial Mass will be
held at 10:30 a.m. Monday,
Feb., 25, in Our Lady Star of
the Sea Catholic Church (A1A
Ponte Vedra) with the
Reverend Daniel Logan as
Celebrant followed by a recep-
tion. In lieu of flowers, the

Kids join


at library

by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
Two young audience members at
the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
Library Saturday were asked to do
something that 4- or 5-year-olds can
find it hard to do be very still.
Hudson Morrow, 4-1/2, managed
to hold five sticks (with a little help
from a helmet and a clown), each of
which held a spinning plate.
Will Watkins, 5, stood between
ringmaster Todd Zimmerman and
Thom the Clown Wheaton as they
flipped, juggled and tossed several
juggling pins in front of and behind
him.
A not-so-young audience member,
Raymond Firment, helped the circus
act, Odd-O-T's, by tossing a purple
hat onto the clown's head, then
standing still as the clown .tossed it
onto his.
Although the audience was small,
the reception was warm for the circus
act brought in by the Friends of the
Library for the St. Johns Reads coun-
tywide reading project.
The book for this year's project is
"Water for Elephants" (see review,
below), a novel about a traveling cir-
cus that the members of Odd-O-T's -
each a former member of one travel-
ing circus or another said was very
true to life.
Along with the ringmaster and
Thom the Clown, the Odd-O-T's,
who are from Davenport near
Orlando, consist of acrobat Timea
Zimmerman, the Zimmermans' 7-
month-old Zoe. a third-generation
circus perfori'er,' according-; to? her-'
mother, and clown Dean Kelly.
Wheaton also comes from a long
line of circus performers: his great-
great grandfather Joseph Lefler, an
albino, was sold to the Ringling
Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus in
the '30s, Wheaton told the audience.
A discussion on "Water for
:Elephants" will be held at 1 p.m.
Saturday at the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library. The public is invited.

'Water for Elephants' a page-turner


Last year a friend told me
she was reading one of
the best books she had
read in a long time. When
she told me the name -
"Water for Elephants" and
that the book was about a
Depression-era, second-rate
circus, I couldn't imagine how
such a book could be as com-
pelling as she suggested that it
was.
Respecting her opinion,
however, I thought I'd give it
a try. My friend was right!
Novelist Sara Gruen's tale is
an old fashioned story of
good (in the form of veteri-
nary student Jacob Jankowski)
.versus evil (represented by
August, the crazy and vicious
:animal trainer, and a variety
'of characters who would do
;most anything for a buck).

dent right before his exams at
Cornell University, is hired by
the Benzini Brothers Circus
since he is almost a veterinar-
ian, which is good enough for
them, and he is all they can
afford.


He has the misfortune of
falling in love with the story's
classic victim, Marlena, crazy
August's wife. "Water for
Elephants" is Jacob and
Marlena's love -story, the story
of the elephant Rosie as well
as the story of social misfits
who make the best and worst
of their life ,situations, charac-
ters who show little mercy or
compassion for each other or
the circus animals and who
lack any kind of moral com-
pass.
"Water for Elephants" is a
beautifully researched, bird's-
eye-view into the world of a
traveling circus told by Jacob
Jankowski as he reflects on his
/ long life "at ninety or ninety-
three" from his nursing
home.
If you did not know this is a
novel, you might believe it. is
a memoir. The author spent
many months reading books


about circus history and mak-
ing visits to the Ringling
Museum in Sarasota, Fla.,
enabling her to bring the rich
heritage of the circus to her
readers.
Gruen successfully pulls the
reader into the story with her
comfortable use of circus lan-
guage. Her word pictures
made me feel as though I was
sitting on the midway as I
read, watching the story go
by. She successfully inter-
twines this history with
"studies" in animal and
human behavior and the
human instinct for hope.
As I read this book I experi-
enced joy, sadness, elation
and great amusement. The
ending is unusual but very
satisfying.
"Water for Elephants"
turned out to be a page-turn-
er, which I never expected.

Autistic kids


get benefits


from bowling


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER
A mixed-generation league
at Beach Bowl Saturday looked
very much like any other
group of bowlers, with chil-
dren anxiously awaiting their
turns and parents offering
guidance and encouragement.
But for this group of 33,
bowling is more than a fun
activity: the children, all of
whom have autism, learn
social skills while' their parents
get some camaraderie.
"It's really for the kids to
have some fun," said Mark
Skoog,, organizer of the bowl-
ing league and father of an 8-
year-old, high-functioning
autistic boy, Matthew.
"It lets them know there are
things they can do," Skoog
said. "They learn structure by
having to wait turns. It teach-
es them to be part of a team. It
teaches them to be independ-
ent, and a little bit of social
interaction."
The league is funded
through Healing Every
Autistic Life (HEAL), an organ-
ization founded by Bobby and
Leslie Weed of Ponte Vedra
Beach and their autistic
daughter's doctor, Julie
Buckley, who also is Matthew
Skoog's doctor.
"It's a non-profit that's


designed to help autistic' chil-
dren in any way they can,
especially with the social
skills," Buckley's husband,
.Dean Buckley, said at
Saturday's bowling session.
"HEAL is sponsoring this
event to help the special needs
kids interact with each other
and behave as normal as pos-
sible."
A complex developmental
disability, autism typically
shows up in the first three
years of life, according to the
web site of the Autism Society
of America (www.autism-soci-
ety.org).
) Adults and children with
autism "show difficulties in
verbal and non-verbal com-
munication, social interac-
tions, and leisure or play activ-
ities," the site notes, adding
that autism is known as a
"spectrum disorder" because
symptoms vary on a wide
spectrum.
Affecting one in 150 births
in this country, autism has no
known single cause, "but it is
generally accepted that it is
caused by abnormalities in
brain structure or function,"
the web site notes.
Although autism affects
each person differently and in

Children's cooking classes at YMCA

COLUMNIST
Aspiring chefs, ages 3 to 10 years
old, can have fun with food in
two classes held at the Winston
Family YMCA in Ponte Vedra.
The Y's membership director,
Heather Parrish, who teaches both
classes and is the mother of two chil-
dren, said that she has incorporated
many ideas from her own kids in the
kitchen for the Y classes.
Junior Chefs is held on Tuesday
afternoons for ages 6 to 10. Children
ages 3 to 5 years old can participate
in Wee Chefs on Thursday mornings.
Both classes will continue through
the second week of March.
Wee Chefs offers the younger chil-
dren an opportunity to have fun
with food. Activities from some
recent classes include cutting sand-
wiches into fun shapes and painting

bread with milk tinted with food col-
oring.
Junior Chefs focuses more on food
preparation and healthy choices.
Since the class does not have use of a
full kitchen, Parrish plans classes
around dishes that can be prepared
using an electric skillet or other small
appliance.
Although this limits what can be
prepared, it also means the children
are learning to prepare simple foods
that they can also do at home with
parental supervision, said Parrish.


Last week for a special Valentine's
Day treat, the Junior Chefs made and
decorated Strawberry Shortcakes with
fresh strawberries, pre-made low fat
sponge cakes, frostings, and sprin-
kles.
In some of the previous classes, the
children havemade pancakes, pasta
salad, quesadillas, and peanut butter
balls.
Parrish said that she shows the
children how to make snacks more
healthful, for example by adding a
little bran cereal to peanut butter
balls.
The Junior Chefs help to plan
future classes and some of their sug-
gestions have included pizza, grilled
cheese sandwiches, and cookies.
The Winston Family YMCA is at
170 Landrum Lane in Ponte Vedra.
For more information about the chil-
dren's cooking classes, call 543-9622.

BIRTH


(Part three of a series)

by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
After three weeks of train-
ing, the American Red Cross
Life Saving Corps' winter
recruit class has been cut in
half.
Only 17 survive from an
original class of more than
35.
A commodore has been
chosen. The wheat has been
separated from the chaff.
But the winnowing will
continue until graduation
day.
"What's your best swim
time, commodore?" assistant
instructor Demian Harris
asks Eric Bohn Sunday morn-
ing at the University of
North Florida Aquatic
Center.
"9:03, sir."
"Clarence MacDonald. Tell
me about him," lead instruc-
tor Rick Foster quizzes
another recruit.
Knowledge about the
Corps' history (Clarence
MacDonald was the Corps
first captain) is not a make-
or-break component of the
12-week training program,
which runs Jan. 27 to April
27. But it tells Foster and
Harris who among the
recruits has done their
homework.
The stopwatch is another
indicator of who is taking
the training seriously.
"If your time slows it's
obvious you have not swum
a lick this week," Foster said
Sunday while timing recruits,


in lanes. We're going to do
the cross-chest carry. We'll
stop when I'm satisfied."
A basic rescue drill that
involves towing a victim to
shore, the cross-chest carry is
a stomach-churning exercise
that can make even the most
experience lifeguard queasy.
Later, recruits practiced
active-unassisted and pas-
sive-unassited rescues in the
deep end. Active-unassisted
rescues involve a panic-
stricken or combative victim
and are among the toughest
a recruit must master.
Foster and Harris repeated-
ly dunk recruits during this
take-no-prisoners drill.
"We're making them put it
all together today," said
Harris, a graduate of the
2006 winter recruit class.
On Sunday, the recruits
trained alongside veteran
Corps members who were
undergoing rectification.


According to past captain
George Paugh, Corps mem-
bers must be recertified in
rescue techniques every
three years and in CPR every
year.
Parent's night was held last
Wednesday at the lifeguard.
station. Foster said 16
showed up to tour the sta-
tion and watch a video.
Recruits began donning
their ceremonial and
somewhat demeaning -
"signs" last week. Painted
white with red letters, the
plywood name tags must be
worn around a recruit's neck
whenever he or she is at the
lifeguard station.
Bohn, the commodore, or
elected leader of the class,
has a red "sign" with white
letters.
As is customary on initia-
tion day, those same signs
will be adorned with dead
fish.
Being dunked by their
overzealous instructors and .
wearing a dead fish necklace
are part of the price recruits
will pay for inclusion in the
time-honored American Red
Cross Life Saving Corps, now
in its 97th year of existence.
"Being a lifeguard is just
not looking cool on the
beach on your tower and
watching all the girls gojlby,"
said retired guard Gary Fiske,.
commodore of the 1965 win-z
ter recruit class.
"I can't think of any other
demanding job when it
comes to the safety of
bathers visiting our beach-
es."

Continued from A-7
different degrees, early diagno-
sis is considered crucial
because of the possibly bene-
fits of early intervention,
accordingto the autism socie-
ty.
Skoog said his son exhibits
signs of classic autism: hand
flapping, biting and language
barriers.
Asked by a visitor about his
bowling skills, Matthew


replied, "I great."
The youngster's grandfather,
Torn Hoffman, said the "old
mindset" of locking away
autistic children is fading.
"I'm a real believer that the
more you expose the public to
what is happening, the better
it is not only for the public but
also for the kids," said
Hoffman, who with his wife
Sharon watched Matthew
bowl.


Skoog said the parents as
well as the community benefit.
"It lets them know parents
can go out and be with like-
minded people," he said, "but
it also teaches the community
we're out here . and we can
do things just like anyone else.
That's the big thing."
Buckley said bowling has
.been used as therapy for autis-
tic children for decades.
"It's the physical and occu-


national therapy and the social
interaction, which is so miss-
ing" among autistic children,
who often are isolated from
their peers.
"That's the one component
that, as a parent, you grieve,
because they don't know how
to interact. Everything is black
and white to them. There's no
gray area.
"[Here] they root for each
other," Buckley said.

P U SIESSREVIEW



Island Press and Design works with

integrity and creativity to be the Beaches

own full-service printing business


It is not easy to build and
mold a business to the pro-
file you envisioned when
you started. It takes time
and dedication and, as .
many business people rec- i
ognize, a staff that is "on | '
board" with the ideal you .
set before them. When that
ideal includes "quality,
integrity and -service", you
have to have high standards |
and firm resolve. All of this --
has come to fruition at in
Island Press and Design, the
Beaches full-service print-
ing company, located in
Atlantic Beach.
Owner Pat Toomey is the i -;
first to say she has a "solid -
team" who share her
mantra of quality service
performed with integrity
for each and every cus-
tomer. It didn't happen Owner Pat Toomey wants (
overnight, but this estab- quality, honest service.
lished printing business is a
success story in that regard.
"We define ourselves as a truly Beaches business,"
says Pat, from the name to the priorities. "Everyone
here identifies with this community."
That team includes an experienced and exacting
press manager, Chris Hopkins, Sr. who will not accept
"almost good enough" work in the press area. "He is
quality-focused," Pat says, and "he will not deliver
the job until the work is right." For those who have
worked with this company, this is not news., Chris
has been and continues to be, as Pat calls it, "the
backbone of the business."
An exciting staff member at Island Press and Design
is Kathleen Dooley, the Graphic Designer, who
already has a reputation for bringing clients exciting
new ideas and creativity. "Kathleen can start from
scratch or from your concept and create very solid
logos and such, even building a corporate-identity
design package," Pat says. "People rave over her, and
she has a special talent for color."
Island Press and Design has built an extensive data-
base of its customers' previous printing work. This
valuable archive allows a local business person to
return to a successful idea from a previous work,..d
repeat it, or, as she has done to great success for 'cus-
tomers, Kathleen can give it a cutting-edge tweak or
modernization to heighten the impact for the cus-
tomer.
There is no need to leave the Beaches community
for complete and top quality printing or related serv-
ices. When you call Island Press and Design, Tammy
Nadeau will probably be your first contact and she is
well qualified, with an MBA degree, to assist and
guide you. She understands business needs and is a
Beaches local on top of it. She may suggest an
appointment with Chris Peskar. This knowledgeable


representative "will come to you and show you sam-
ples,. study your needs, access your printing goals."
She brings this local business even closer by meeting
in your office at your convenience, part of that "serv-
ice" goal Pat has established.
All of Pat's team are Beach folks, including the
youngest member of the team Chris Hopkins, Jr.
With an eye for color work and the youthful enthu-
siasm for technology, he is, as Pat describes, "a com-
puter whiz." If you are picking up a job from the 296
Royal Palms Drive location of Island Press and
Design, you may have met him as he carried your
order to your vehicle.
You have probably seen their work in the printed
material Island has completed for clients already ben-
efiting from a relationship with this local, full-service
print business. For example, numerous churches and
business customers here at the Beaches, the St.
Augustine Amphitheater and the St. Augustine
Lighthouse, are some of the many clients Pat is proud
to serve.
"We have built an honorable relationship with our
community and our clients. We have built partner-
ships, so that we can serve our Beaches clients, no
matter the size of the job, quantity and such. This
has been a part of building on our goal of service and
integrity." She is rightly proud of today's Island Press
and Design, and invites new customers as well as pre-
vious customers to let her and her team prove them-
selves to you.
Located at 296 Royal Palm Drive in Atlantic Beach,
the hours are 9 to 5 Monday through Friday and the
phone number is (904) 241-7652. Call the next time
you need printing services, or want to re-examine
your corporate design.

'1 The weather cooperated beautifully Friday for the annual
'.N k- "Jump Rope for Heart" event at Accotink Academy by the
'A Sea in Ponte Vedra Beach, which raises money for the
S.. American Heart Association. "We do this every year," said
Mary Kay Rodgers, director of education at Accotink.
"Lindy Callahan, our PE director and assistant education
director, practices withthe kids for about six weeks before
... the event," she said. The children get pledges for the
A-. jumps they will do, "then they come and just jump their
.hearts out," Rodgers said. "It's a win-win for everybody.

do each station," said Dawn
Rich, Domenech's assistant.
"We believe that when you are
teaching somebody else how
to do something, you learn
better for yourself."
Sophomore Ashley Hill, who
led Pfeiffer with five goals in its
19-12 win over Rollins, said
lthe team likes the idea of help-
ing young lacrosse players in
Florida, home to Pfeiffer
lacrosse players Jamie
Livingston of Lake Howell and
Jess Sundman of Winter Park.
"To get to work with kids
around their area it's very
relaxing and makes you feel
warm," Hill said.
"It means a lot to us [having
Pfeiffer here]," said Kelly
Dotsikas, who played lacrosse
in high school and college, as
did her husband.
"As a growing club, we don't
have much exposure to college


teams. So for us to even get the
chance, not just to have this
clinic but to go watch the
game, is a great experience."
In the face off, held at
Fletcher High's Jack Taylor
Stadium, the Delaware Fightin'
Blue Hens defeated the UMBC
Retrievers 15-7.
Along with the Dotsikases
and Francis, others who have
helped develop Ponte Vedra
Beach lacrosse include Jerry
and Leslie Santillo, Ray
Carnicelli, Dan McAuliffe.
The club was founded in
2004, but the pioneers, among
them Scott Cleary and Patti
Lombardo, started lacrosse in
Ponte Vedra Beaqh a few years
before that.
"We're at the stage now
where the original Junior
Predators are going to play
tomorrow," said Cleary said at
the clinic Friday.


"Bobby Stockton, one of the
original Predators, is going to
play [for UMBC], and that
makes us proud."
Now the commissioner of
Ponte Vedra youth lacrosse,
Cleary said Francis "spearhead-
ed the boys and girls teams" in
Ponte Vedra Beach and "has
taken it to the next level" with
the Nease boys team.
"He's annihilating teams
that had a 10-year head start."
Cleary, who played club
lacrosse at Florida, grew up in
Massachusetts, where he
played ice hockey and lacrosse.
At 48, he continues to play in a
men's lacrosse league despite
bad knees.
"My wife asked me why I
became commissioner," said
Cleary. "You know what,
because I know the game, I
love the game, and so why
shouldn't I do it?"

Nease boys savor another state soccer title


Victory over

Gulf Breeze

nets second

consecutive

4A crown,

FROM STAFF

For a second straight season,
the Nease High boys soccer
team came back from Fort
Lauderdale as state champi-
ons.
A pair of first half goals was
all the Panthers needed last
Friday morning to top Gulf
Breeze, 2-1, and earn another
Class 4A title.
In the game's 20th minute,
Nease senior Joe McKinley
drilled a free kick from about
22 yards out into the corner of
the net to give his side a 1-0
lead.
McKinley is the Panthers'
go-to guy on free kicks from
plenty of areas in the offen-
sive end, but the forward is
:especially dangerous from that
'distance with his curling, well-
placed shots. He also had a
goal and two assists in last
Thursday's semifinal victory
over Naples Golden Gate.
Gulf Breeze (21-6-5) found
the equalizer three minutes
after McKinley's goal when
Stuart Parks collected a
rebound off Christian
Mauldwin's free kick and
slipped it past Panthers' keep-
er Fernando Duffoo.
Eleven minutes later, Nease
striker A. Jay Nelson was
pushed down in the box and
converted his penalty kick to
put the Panthers in front 2-1.
It was Nelson's 24th goal of
the season.
For the remainder of the

Panthers forward Filip Ivanov, center, is congratulated by Nease teammates A. Jay Nelson, left, and Chris Beyette (9) after scoring
against Orlando Bishop Moore in the regional championship game Feb. 8. The Panthers rolled to a 3-1 win that propelled them into,
last week's Class 4A state final four in Fort Lauderdale. Nease won the championship with a 2-1 win over Gulf Breeze.


first half and throughout the
second, Nease's defense
clamped down and allowed
the Dolphins few scoring
opportunities.
The Panthers outshot the
Dolphins 12-10, with Duffoo
recording four saves in the
victory.
For his efforts Thursday
against Golden Gate and
Friday in the state champi-
onship game, McKinley was
named the Class 4A tourna-


ment MVP. .
Set pieces proved to be the
difference for Nease in Fort
Lauderdale. Against Golden
Gate in the semifinals, Myles
Wright scored a pair of goals
off corner kicks from
McKinley en route to a 4-1
victory.
With McKinley's free kick
and Nelson's penalty try
resulting in goals against Gulf
Breeze in the state final, the
Panthers cemented their abili-


ty to convert set pieces into
points.
Panthers head coach Ken
Kirsch said 60 percent of his
team's points throughout the
season resulted from set
pieces, and five of the six
goals Nease scored in the
semifinal and final came off
dead-ball situations.
Nease finishes the season at
25-5-2 and will return top
point-scorers Filip Ivanov (34
goals, 22 assists) and Nelson


(24 goals, 17 assists) next sea-
son as it looks to defend the
back-to-back titles won in
2007 and 2008..
The team will lose nine sen-
iors including Brian Ahearn,
Chris Beyette, Jordan Bresna-
han, Austin Johansen, Kyle
Johnson, Max Lang, McKinley,
David Vargas and Wright.
Offensively, next season's
iteration of Nease boys soccer
should be in good hands with
Ivanov and Nelson leading the


attack. The defense will con-
tinue to be anchored by
sweeper Nick Janocko and
Duffoo in goal.
For Kirsch, a second state
championship in as many sea-
sons at the helm is validation
that his system is working.
,With 17 players returning from
last season, he knew another
state title was feasible.
"I felt we had the talent. I
told the guys that we could
play 32 games this season, if we
go all the way again," Kirsch
said after winning the regional
title.
"Before the year began, I had
T-shirts made up with a bulls-
eye on the back and under-
neath it said 'I accept the chal-
lenge.' "
As the defending state cham-
pions, Kirsch knew Nease
wouldn't fly under the radar
this season, so he toughened
up the schedule with state-
ranked teams and advocated a
new year round weight-training
regime.
"Teams beat us up, physical-
ly, last year," Kirsch said. "We
were in the weight room in the
offseason all the time and dur-
ing the season we try to get in
once a week."
With the boys team wrap-
ping up their second consecu-
tive state championship, Nease
High becomes only the eighth
school in Florida sports history
to win boys and girls state soc-
cer titles in the same season.
The feat has been accom-
plished 11 times overall, but
Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas,
Aquinas did it multiple times
from 1996 to 2005.
Under the direction of head
coach Dave Silverberg, the
Panthers girls team earned its
fourth state title' in the past
seven seasons Feb. 7 with a 3-
.0 victory over Merritt Island.
Both Silverberg and Kirsch
have said Nease High soccer
has benefitted'from terrific
feeder programs at the youth
level.


Softball finally earns



a victory over Palatka


FACE OFF FOR A CAUSE


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER

For the first time in three
seasons, Nease High earned a
softball victory against Palatka.
The Panthers (3-1, 1-0
District 5-4A) jumped out to a
fast start, scoring five runs in
the first two innings en route
to a 6-5 district win over
Palatka last Friday night.
The victory was the first for
Nease seniors since their fresh-
men seasons.


"We haven't beaten Palatka
since these seniors were fresh-
man so it's a great win for our
senior leaders," Nease head
coach Gordie Rolison said.
"That's three years we haven't
beat them. [Palatka] was
ranked in the nation last year
and I know they graduated
some kids, but they still have
some good players and they
have a great coach over there."
Nease led throughout the
ballgame but held off a rally in
the final inning as Palatka

scored three runs through the
first three batters of the inning
. before Nease pitcher Ashley
Ceithaml retired the next three
batters, securing the win.
"We wanted to stick with
Ashley," Rolison said on the
decision to leave the junior
pitcher in the game despite
Palatka's rally.
"She started the game and
she's our top pitcher so we
wanted to stay with her as
long as we could. I was sur-
prised they got those few
runs."
Nease was strong from the
start, opening the game with
singles by Clare Wamsley and
Kristen Mantia. Palatka pitcher
Arriel Driggers walked Selina
Hernandez in the following at-
bat.
Alyssa Pradella smacked a
double with the bases loaded
two batters later, sending in all
three runners and giving the
Panthers an early 3-0 lead.
