This team

is special

The sandlot baseball that
is played Saturdays at
Cornerstone Park is special
to some special kids, who
may have no other chance
to play team ball.
The players are in the
Rising Star division of the
Ponte Vedra Athletic
Association for those whose
disabilities prevent them
from playing with a "regu-
lar" team.
The division is a dream
come true for at least one
player Robbie Culliton,
12, whose father, Bob
Culliton,. approached the
PVAA last year about the
"All he's [Robbie] ever
-want to do was play on a
baseball team," the boy's
mother, Mary Jo Culliton,
said in a telephone interview
this week.
"It just provides him the
capacity to be a regular kid .
and play a real game," she
said of their son, who has
"motor planning issues" so
can't respond or act as
quickly as most children his
The PVAA was "extremely
supportive" and provided
the Rising Stars with a place
to play and equipment to
use, Mary Jo Culliton said.

Grant Walchle takes a swing at the ball Saturday during practice for the
Rising Stars division of the Ponte Vedra Athletic Association. Children with
or without special needs are invited to join the practice and games.

Cops warn of


online scam

If you get an e-mail whose subject line
declares that "some one you know, want you
dead," do not respond, advises the St. Johns
County Sheriff's Office.
At least three St. Johns County residents
over the past month have reported receiving
such a threat from a supposed hit man in an
e-mail scam first reported by the FBI in
December 2006, according to deputies.
The e-mail "threatens to kill recipients if
they do not pay the sender," according to a
news release from the Sheriff's Office.
"The scam is preying on fears" instead of
"the recipients' greed or good intentions" as
previous e-scams have done, the release said.
"If you receive an e-mail such as this, just
delete it and never respond back," the
Sheriffs Office advises.
"A reply just sends a signal to senders that
they have reached a live account."
The warning comes as Bill McCollum,
Florida's attorney general, encourages con-
sumers to become better informed to avoid
falling prey to scam and con artists.
"Con artists are often very clever in devis-
ing new schemes, and consumers have to be
... ever on their guard," McCollum said in a
news release this week.
Debt collection and credit reporting agen-
cies top the list of fraud complaints received
last year by the Attorney General's office.
They were followed by Internet-related
scams that emerged last year, among them a
variety of check overpayment schemes, as
well as identity theft and complaints about
online companies that fail to deliver ordered
merchandise, according to McCollum's
, office.

Fresh idea: Sign can be 12 sq. feet larger

Jessie Carzoli, a 2004
graduate of Nease High and
recent graduate of Auburn
University, is back in Ponte
Vedra Beach, and she has a
new cause: how to stop
human trafficking. See story,

The Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) gave its OK
last week for a larger "Fresh
Market" wall sign to be placed
at the grocery store along
State Road A1A in Ponte
Vedra Beach.
The ARC's Feb. 27 approval
of a 36-square-foot sign to
replace the existing 24-
square-fbot sign follows the

December vote by the St.
Johns County Commission
allowing the larger sign.
Under the xules of the
Ponte Vedra Palm Valley
Overlay District, which are
overseen by ARC, wall signs
for businesses are to be limit-
ed to 24 square feet
The Fresh Market sign, like
the signs of other businesses
along major roads in the
Ponte Vedra area, was a stick-

ing point for the grocery
store, which moved into the
space formerly occupied by
Harris Teeter.
Fresh Market originally
tried for a 47-square-foot sign,
but ARC board members
rejected that proposal in July.
When the issue came before
County Commissioners in
August, commissioners sent it
back to the ARC, and Fresh
Market agreed to a suggestion

from county staff to reduce
the sign to 36-square-feet as a
But when ARC members
again took up the issue, the
four members present were
split 2-2 on whether to allow
the larger sign.
When commissioners voted
to approve the larger sign in
December, two commissioner
expressed their distaste for
dealing with such an issue.

"This board doesn't want to
deal with these issues,"
Commissioner Ben Rich said
during the December meet-
"I think we have to insert
some level of common sense
into this thing,"
Commissioner Jim Bryant
said. "I believe we have to e
somewhat business-friendly
but not intrusive to the com-
munity," he added.

PV woman is cover story in

'Working Mom' magazine

An entrepreneur who moved her
company, Green Frog Art, from New
York to Ponte Vedra Beach is the fea-
tured subject on the cover of the
upcoming "Working Mother
Kelly Neal, president and chief
designer of the children's furnish-
ings company, is pictured on the
magazine's April cover holding her
daughter Ava, 1.
The story inside tells about Neal's
decision to leave behind the mergers
and acquisitions she brokered for a
New York law firm and 12 years ago
launch the furniture design compa-
ny, although she had no background
in furniture or design.
After the business took off, Neal
decided to relocate to Ponte Vedra
Beach in 1997 because of the state's
friendly business climate, the wealth
of artists in the community and the
fact that her parents live in Ponte
Vedra, the magazine article notes.
The same year that Neal moved
her company's furniture production
to China 2000 she met a neigh-
bor, David Mariotti, manager of the
Lodge & Club at Ponte Vedra Beach.
The two married about two years
later and, as the magazine article
explains, the couple struggled with
fertility problems and miscarriage
for three years before Neal was able
to get pregnant through invitro fer-
Now a mother, Neal balances the
responsibilities of business and fam-
ily, reserving weekends for family

time, according to the article.
Green Frog Art has seven employ-
ees in a kid-friendly and dog-friend-
ly atmosphere, the story notes.
"I was excited when the magazine
contacted me and asked if I would
be their cover model," Neal said in a
news release this week. "When
someone recognizes your hard work
as both a business woman and a
mother, it is truly flattering."
The April issue of "Working
Mother Magazine" is expected to be
available about mid-March.

Here's how

this Towana

got her name
The story of how Ponte
Vedra Beach resident Towana
Parker-Hegan got her first
name goes back to the days
before she was born.
"Towana" is the name of a
movie character from a 1939
adaptation of a Zane Grey
book, "Wolf Call," Parker-
Hegan, 66, told a visitor
recently. The movie starred
John Carroll and Movita.
Towana, an Indian princess
played by Movita, was a
favorite character of her moth-
er, she told the visitor.
Parker-Hegan has a tape of
the film, as well as copies of
the movie's posters, to under-
score that fact.

Angie's List

notes best

and worst

For the third vear in a row,
home warranty companies have
earned the dubious distinction
as the most complained-about
service in 2007, according to
ratings from Angle's List, an
online list of contractors and
companies rated by consumers.
Thirty-eight percent of the
reports for home warranty com-
panies were "F" grades last vear,
according to a news release
from Angie's List.

tural engineering and solar

300,000 reports in 2007 trom
members who graded service
companies on overall experi-
ence, price, quality, responsive-
ness and punctuality. W arranty
companies attracted the great-
est percentage of "F" grades out
of more than 280 categories of
service, while veterinarians had
the greatest percentage of "A"
Most of the complaints about
home warranty companies
"stemmed from misunderstand-

covered or unhappiness "ith

The most common reasons
members gave in explaining
why they awarded either high

Teens may

lack sleep
This is National Sleep
Awareness Week. Do you know
how much sleep your teen is
Two critical factors collide
when teens are in their early
driving years, according to a
news release from Geico: They
.need nearly 9.5 hours of sleep
every night, and they get an
average of 7.4 hours a night.
Also, teens' biological clocks
are set so that they fall asleep
later at night and wake up later
in the morning, a schedule that
may not fit with school hours.
It all points to a nation of
very sleepy teenagers, and teens
are known to have the highest
crash rates in the country.
Your teen may be sleep
deprived if he or she can't wake
up in the morning, is Irntable
late in the day, falls asleep spon-

taneously during the day and

Practice not required

S SANDLOT, from A-1
It was discovered during
the first year that expecting
the Rising Stars to make the
kind of commitment expect-
ed of other teams was not
realistic, she said.
"They weren't used to have
a more traditional sports out-
fit," she said. Many of the
special needs kids have fre-
quent therapy or other ses-
sions that keep them busy,
she said.
So, this year, "basically,
there's no commitment. It's a
sandlot format" and those
who show up can play, she

last Saturday, Mary Jo
Culliton said siblings,

will join with the Rising Stars
for the games, she said.
"There actually will be
some typical kids out there
playing with the Rising
Stars," she said, giving the
children "a real game."
Special needs and other
children can join in the
games even if they haven't
attended a practice, she said.
There is no cost, but players
should bring their own glove.
Games are scheduled March
15, April 5, 12, 19, 26 and
May 3 on field 2 at
Cornerstone. Game time is 3
In general, the Rising Stars
range in age from about 8 to
about 13, she said.

there, the more real it is."

Top cop advises citizens:

Be 'intolerant' of crime

Crime and safety, poor hous-
ing, drug dealers and prostitu-
tion along Mayport Road are.
all hot button issues that have
the attention of citizens and
city officials.
While Atlantic Beach city
officials were developing
longterm solutions at city
planning meetings last week,
a group of concerned citizens
came together one evening to
take action.
Milton "Sarge" Hall, who
grew up in Atlantic Beach,
facilitated the Feb. 26 meeting
at the Donner Park
Community Center in Atlantic
Beach, encouraging residents
and others to help in "taking
back their community."
Several city and public safety
officials, including the mayor,
attended the meeting to gain a
better understanding of citi-
zens' perception of problems
in the area. Leaders from other
agencies were also in atten-
"We are here to listen. This is
not our meeting. We are here
to support you," said Atlantic
Beach Mayor John Meserve,
adding that the meeting had
one of the greatest citizen
turnouts that he had seen in
years in Mayport.
Several citizens reiterated
concerns about lighting, heavy
shrubbery and the need for
more police presence..
"The trees and shrubbery can
be used as a hiding place for
people dealing drugs," said one
man who said he has witnessed
drug deals near his home.
Poor lighting in the area also
contributes to a higher crime
rate, many said.
Several people also said that
there needs to be more police
presence to ward off criminals.
Requests for speed humps or
reduced speed limits were also
addressed because cars speed
through and ignore stop signs
where children get off school
buses, according to residents.
Others asked what they
should be doing to curb the
Atlantic Beach Police Chief
David Thompson said that the
best approach is to adopt an
"attitude of intolerance" and

I hope you're angry
enough and frustrated
enough to get past that
fear [of calling the police].

Atlantic Beach Polie Chief
David Thompson

not become complacent when
a crime occurs.
Thompson gave an example
of a recent incident involving
someone walking down the
street with an AK-47 rifle, and
no one called the police.
"I hope you're angry enough
and frustrated enough to get
past that fear [of calling the
police]," said Thomps6n.
He also emphasized the
importance of hope.
"What these people need
more than anything is hope,
Thompson said. "The most
important thing to do is come

together as a community and
give hope."
He encouraged citizens to
continue using area communi-
ty centers and resources to help
children achieve a future.
Other participants suggested
having a family or community
day at a city park and also
banding together possibly
with the mayor to walk the
streets and get a message out
that they will not tolerate
crime any longer.
Meserve suggested that the
group and city officials meet
again Tuesday at 6 p.m at the
community center to continue
talking and begin the process
of working together.
He also suggested citizens get
specific about their problems.
For example, documenting
areas that need improvement
on a city map.
"This can go one of two
ways. Everybody goes back to
their lives or we're going to do
something about it," Meserve
said at the end of the meeting.

The Leader's Opinion

Helping students

master English

language is a

laudable project

Fourteen Rotarians delivered 675 dictionaries to
third grade students at seven elementary schools at
the Beach.
Those are impressive numbers, especially when
you realize that all those third grade students will be
able to use that dictionary for years to come. If the
generous gift helps any of the children become bet-
ter communicators then the project will have been
worth all of the time and expense.
The dictionaries are given as part of a focus on lit-
eracy, according to Oceanside Rotary.
A dictionary may seem to be a somewhat old fash-
ioned item in this day of text messaging and web
surfing. In truth, though, a dictionary is even more
vital to these students who will exposed to years of
fractured language and spelling in text messaging.
A strong mastery of the English language includes
understanding the origins and meanings of words.
And for this, there is no replacement for a dictionary.
Having one on hand as you tackle literature of
both past and present is key and, thanks to the
Rotarians, these students are well equipped to be bet-
ter educated and more literate.
The presentation of the dictionaries was done with
little fanfare, but it is a gift that can provide a life-
time of benefits to the recipients.
Rotarians responsible for the project are due kudos
- a word that can be found in the dictionary.

U-Turns are just part of life

Carpooling on a Friday
afternoon, no big deal,
right? Just throw those
backpacks in the back of the
car and let the kids file in.
Yeah, right.
Noah and Caleb, my 7- and
8-year-old were both having
friends over along with three
extra kids to drop off. My car
has room for eight, so no
problem. Everyone starts to
pile in and Sara says, "Where
do you want me to put this
"Here, let me put it in the
trunk." Well, the trunk was
full of food from a luncheon I
had just catered.
Some quick rearranging
began. The boys start saying,
"Hey, we can't sit down either,
these bags are in the way."
"What are .you talking
about?" I reply and take a look
for myself. Uggggggh. I forgot
about the two huge black
garbage bags for the Barnabas
Center in the back row.
This is going to be a trick fit-
ting this many kids amongst
all these other treasures.
"Wait, Alice ... STOP ... Don't
go yet!" I yell to Charlie's
mom, wildly waving my arms,
flagging her down as she's
pulling out of the school.
"Would you mind putting
my Barnabas donations in the
back of your car and I'll get
them when we trade kids
later?" I say with a smile, how-
ever feeling mildly embar-
rassed and overdone at this
point. But you know what? It
is my life.

.' ..

'..-~ cd. .. :


Without skipping a beat,
not even a sarcastic comment
or poke at me, she said, "If you
want I can just drop that off
for you." How nice is that? She
had no idea the bags had been
in my car for at least three
weeks. Every time I'd think to
drop them off, something else
would get in the way. They
had been moved from the
trunk to the third row a few
times, but since I'm the driver,
not the rider, it continued to
slip my mind.
"You are a lifesaver, that
would be a huge help."
Receiving random acts of
kindness is a blessing, some.-
times way bigger than the
giver even knows.
At that moment, from the
middle seat, Matthew says, "I
still can't sit down." What
now? Oh, the bottled water.
Biting my lip with a grin, I
schlep the case to the way
back praying it can be finagled

one last time.
"Ya'll.know Miss Jen is a lit-
tle crazy right?" They all giggle
and nod their cute heads in
the midst of my exasperation.
We did a bit more fine tun-
ing in the trunk and strategi-
cally made room for seven lit-
tle hineys, six big-kid back-
packs, five ladies dancing, four
baguette loaves, three woven
baskets, two pounds of ziti,
one case of water and a
spinach salad in a pear tree.
Whew. Off we went. The
children roared with laughter
when I "forgot" where we
were going. Missing a turn to
the kid's house was just the
icing on this afternoon cake.
Laughter is such good food for
the soul. Thank goodness we
do lots of it while logging our
many.miles in the family car.
A joyful spirit in the midst
of the turbulence, this is what
keeps us going when it seems
there is nothing left to give.
My kids are learning that
their mom is human. U-turns
are not a bad thing, simply a
realignment of where we are
headed. Asking for a helping
hand is another sign of being
human. Sometimes doing
things on our own saves face,
but not our sanity. Finding
that balance is the key.
Hmmm wonder what that's

T |here are a few things
more futile than writing
.an opinion piece direct-
ed to 13 15 year olds, but
this is where I'm headed any-
way. Since I am talking about
bicycle safety around our

of the road. And among
cyclists, there is the thought
that some drivers are out to get
us. Neither of these is univer-
sally true. On my weekly ped-
dling excursions, I have found
drivers to be especially courte-
ous. I approach an intersec-
tion and slow to a stop to wait
my turn only to have the driv-
ers signal me on across. In fact,
my observation is that drivers.
are kinder to cyclists than to
other drivers a lot of the time.
As to that first accusation
from motorists about those of
us who travel the Beaches
roads on bicycles, I have seen a
few cyclists who make assump-
tions that traffic will stop for
them, will move over for them
or will wait for them. These
are often those brightly col-
ored, appropriately clothed
groups obviously out to make
time. They're adults and know
better. And consider the penal-
ty if their "assumption",proves
But the cyclists that concern
me are the young ones in that
13-15 year old group. Based on
my observations from behind
the wheel of my car and from
my bike, this is a cycling group
moving in its own world with
only limited attention to the
dangers of the road. I've seen
first-hand the ear plugs on the
solitary rider or the intense
conversation going on with
the group or the "trying to
impress" routine. One recent.
Sunday, a group of three young
teens came zipping out of a
courtyard right in front of me
(on my bike) without looking
either way. I.could have been
driving a Mac truck but to this
day, they don't know they
pulled out in front of anything
because they were so busy talk-
ing. And, they wore no hel-
It's the Florida law for a bicy-
cle rider or passenger under age
16 to wear a helmet. Officer
Camille Burban, bike safety
officer in Neptune Beach, has
the best way of getting one's
attention concerning helmets.
She tells children and youth in
her Bike Safety programs to
imagine that your brains are
like Jello. Then picture the
doctor trying to sew your
"Jello" back together. "Protect
your Jello" is the motto she
leaves with children and it's a
worthy message.
Another couple of laws for
young riders to be made aware
of: "You may not have any
passengers on your bike unless
there is a seat mounted for
them." And "You may not hold
on to another moving vehicle
and be pulled on a bicycle."
It's not that you avoid these
practices because it's the law;
you avoid them because you
are all precious to us and these
are things that can injure or
kill you.
As the Jacksonville Beach
Police brochure for cyclists
says: "Each year, approximate-
ly 250 children ages 14 and
younger are killed in bicycle-
related incidents."
To our young people: We
value your life and don't want
you to be a statistic. And, as
motorists, our own mental
health is at stake if we should
be involved in an accident that
injures a child. Tune in to the
world you ride in when you are
on your bike...please.

Miss Jacksonville visits Fletcher Middle School


Miss Jacksonville 2008,
Laurie Snyder of Leesburg and
the University of Florida, has a
message she imparts to stu-
dents. And it's that message,
at least in part, that took her
to Fletcher Middle School Feb.
"I think it's important,"
Snyder said of her ongoing
appearances as Miss
Jacksonville, "because it
shows students you're trying
to be active in the communi-
ty. My whole message is defi-
nitely to get students
involved, to let them see
there's different role models
they can have outside the
family, [other people] they
can look up to. I know I've
had many people who weren't
in my family who inspired
and motivated me to be a suc-
cessful person. I'm hoping
maybe I can be that person to
Snyder is a junior majoring
in marketing at Florida. Her
talent is the piano, which
she's played since 5. And one
of her responsibilities, as Miss

Jacksonville, is to make fre-
quent appearances. She was at
Fletcher Middle to speak to
the Read 180 class.
"Every year the reading
teachers have readers they try
to motivate with speakers.
They always ask if Miss
Jacksonville can come out,"
said Claudia Harris, who
teaches gifted science at FMS
and is on the board of direc-
tors for the Miss Jacksonville
pageant, becausea lot of girls
look up to them. And the boys
enjoy seeing them and speak-
ing with them."
Harris said all Miss
Jacksonvilles have platforms,
and Snyder's is volunteerism.
"She's asking students to
become volunteers, but she
also speaks about students
making the right choices or
good choices," said Harris,
noting it gives Miss
Jacksonville an opportunity to
speak to students and students
a chance to ask them ques-
tions. She has to make a cer-
tain number of appearances,
so it benefits the students as
well, as Laurie."
Heidi Hermansen, an FMS
reading teachers along with
Ginger Rohrbaugh, in whose

classroom the session was
held, said the school is doing
a program called Read 180
from Scholastic Magazine.
"At the end of each work-
shop is something called func-
tional literacy," said
Hermansen. "It might be how
to fill out a job application,
could be reading a public
notice. What we try to do is
show kids the practical side of
reading. We're also trying to
expose them to a variety of
experiences. When [Miss
Jacksonville] comes and talks
about volunteerism, that's a
chance for the kids to get,

from someone they admire, a
message about volunteerism.
And that way they can devel-
op future career skills."
Snyder's volunteerism cam-
paign is called STAR, for
Students Teaching And
Reaching [Out].
"It encourages and pro-
motes youth volunteerism in
a variety of projects," she said.
"It really focuses on a total
package of a student. They can
show they're well-rounded,
have integrity, insure they
keep up their grades and get
involved in their communities
and schools."

If your neighbors like you
but don't like the way your
property is landscaped, what
do you do? Cara and Tom
Doud, who live on Margaret
Street in Neptune Beach,
found a solution through the
DIY [Do It Yourself] Network's
Desperate Landscapes show.
Desperate Landscapes
showed up at the Doud home
early Friday morning to over-
haul the landscaping and give
the house a facelift through
some painting.
Part of the deal is the family
works with the TV crew. Tom
Doud, his father-in'-law, Tom
Gibbon, and brother-in-law,
Travis Gibbon, participated, as
did the Douds' 9-year-old son
Asheton, who assisted in some
plantings. Also on hand was
Cara Doud's mother,
Catherine Quinn, who helped
with 11-month-old Waylon.
"It was real ugly before,"
said Tom Gibbon, "and now
it's going to be real pretty. It'll
be the nicest house on the
Cara Doud, an agent for
Lifestyles Realtors, explained
the re-do happened because
the family applied.
"They have a website you
can go to," she said of the
show. "We were accepted. So
they've come to do a complete
overhaul of our front yard,
painting and planting shrubs
and trees."
The Douds applied in
October and were chosen in
"It's a one-day thing," said
Cara Doud.
The crew, which arrived at
7:15 a.m. Friday, had expected
to be finished around 6 p.m.
"We target neighborhoods
where the homeowners are
kind of the sore thumb on the
block," said Jay Shatz, execu-
tive producer of Desperate
Landscapes. "This is typical for
the Douds. The neighbors love
them but don't like their land-
scape. The neighbors have
done some gentle encourage-
ment and have contacted us to
help out. So that's the situa-

The DIY crew was to redo
seven homes in Jacksonville
over the next couple weeks for
the television show.
"We've had great homes,
great neighbors, a lot of people
who really are passionate
about fixing up their land-
scape, learning how to do it
themselves. That's what the
show's all about," said Shatz.

Florida will be the first week
of July, with the finals the
night of July 5.
"I'm very excited [about
that]," said Snyder. "I'm a
'newbie,' but I'm ready to give
it my all."
"Laurie Snyder is a very
good selection," said Ruth
Sidbury, president and execu-
tive director of the

FMS sixth-grader Ana
Arellano stopped by
Rohrbaugh's classroom to
meet Miss Jacksonville.
Arellano said she would like to
be Miss Jacksonville someday,
but since 17 is the minimum
age, she realizes she has a few
years to go.
Before Snyder's talk began,
Howie Pabsty shared with her
a picture of his sister, Liza,
printed in The Leader. Liza
Pabsty is among the 25 Miss
Fletcher candidates.
Among the frequent ques-
tions Snyder gets from stu-
dents is one about her crown.
"They ask me if I wear the
crown to sleep sometimes.
And I don't. It's nice to have
the crown and banner. It gets
the students' attention. It's
almost like an aid in getting
your message across to them."

trafficking victims

The problem of human
trafficking may seem to be far
removed from life in Ponte
'Vedra Beach, but for one
recent college graduate, that
may not be the case.
Human trafficking "might
happen in Ponte Vedra," said
Jessie Carzoli, a 2004 gradu-
ate of Nease High and
December graduate of
Auburn University.
"A lot of people don't think
it happens in their back yard,
but it does," Carzoli said in a
recent interview. "It happens
in Jacksonville . [and] It
thrives on nobody talking
about it."
Talking about it is some-
thing the 22-year-old is try-
ing to get people to do.
After graduating from
Auburn with a degree in pub-
lic administration and a
minor in African studies,
Carzoli returned to Ponte
Vedra Beach to spend time
with family.
She said she was't thinking
of modern-day slavery when
she was looking for ways to
prepare for her future.
The following are excerpts
from her interview:
How did you get into this
line of work?
"I wanted to do something
that would prepare me for
the future. I wanted to work
with a non-profit that dealt
with international issues;
because that's my passion."
She took an internship at
the Jacksonville office of the
Human Trfficking, -and
when the woman for whom
she was interning left, "They
asked me to take over."
What is human traffick-
"It's using people's services
by forced coersion or fraud."
According to U.S Department
of Justice. more than 800,000
victims are trafficked across
international borders world-
wide each year.
What is your job? What
kind of work do you do?
"I'm a case manager for vic-
tims of human trafficking in
Jacksonville. I work with
human trafficking victims in
Jacksonville and work on
awareness in our community.
It's a lot of'statistics, a lot of
Is human trafficking a
problem in Florida?
'"Florida is one of the top
three states," Carzoli said..
"The other two states . .are

Carzoli: Volunteers are welcome in the project.to end human trafficking

Continued from A-8
Where did you spend your
childhood years?
The Ohio native was 2 when
she came to Jacksonville. Her
family moved to Ponte Vedra
Beach when she entered
fourth grade at Rawlings. She

attended fifth grade at Ocean
Palms, then went to Landrum

What about family?
Carzoli has two younger
brothers and a 24-year-old sis-
ter, Tricia, who lives in Atlanta
with her husband Brother Ty,

a senior at Nease, is "looking
at colleges, wants to play foot-
ball because that's where he's
thrived." Brother Joey is an
eighth grader at Landrum.
Is there any more school-
ing in your future?
"I had never planned on

graduate school until my last
couple years of undergrad,
when I realized I wanted
more."The Peace Corps is still
in my mind, but I'd like to go
to grad school, then figure out
options." She plans to start
graduate school in the fall and

may wind up in London,
Ireland or Scotland studying
African studies, international
development or human rights.
How can members of the
community help?
"I would love to utilize vol-
unteers or interns or anybody

who wants to donate their
time," she said. Volunteers
can reach Carzoli at 993-6309
or 384-0961. Those numbers
also can be used to report pos-
sible cases of human traffick-
ing, she said.

lay for the free venous screening at Beaches Vein Center, 1205
Beach, to be held March 22.

The actual screening will include an examina-
tion of your legs to check for signs that the veins
are not working properly, explains Vining. This
includes varicose veins and other abnormalities
associated with venous insufficiency. You will
then receive a "reflux" ultrasound test which
looks at the function of the valves in the leg
veins. If the valves in your veins do not work
properly, it can result in problems in the leg.
The screening is performed by a team of nurses,
technologists and the doctor.
When your screening is complete you will
leave the office with valuable information on
your risk factors and, importantly, how to deal
with them. Educational material is available for
you. It is reassuring to know that, should you
need assistance or further medical treatment,
you can have that available to you right here at
Beaches Vein Center in Jacksonville Beach. You
do not have to go downtown.
"You will receive a Venous Report Cardy"
Vining says; "that will score your risk factor.
This venous report card can be taken to your pri-
mary care physician so that you can discuss pre-
ventative options with your medical doctor."
Call today for an appointment for your screen-
ing. Appointments will start at 9 a.m. and all
screening will be done at the Beaches V'ein
Center at 1205 Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville
Beach. The number to call is 904-246-6724.

Panthers drop a pair to district foes

Things haven't been run-
ning so smoothly for the
Nease High School softball
team lately. Between having
to reschedule games because
of bad weather to numerous
players fighting colds, the
Panthers have been having a
little trouble on the softball
That trouble hit a low point
last Friday night at home
when Nease (4-3, 3-2 District
5-4A) struggled to stay in the
game against district rival St.
Augustine High School (6-4,
3-2), losing 14-3 in just five
innings of play.
"We got down early,"
Panthers head coach Gordie
Rolison said following the
loss. "I'm not going to make
any excuses, but we haven't
played in nearly two weeks
and everyone's been fighting
the flu.
"I had my 10th grader in
there tonight and she's not
feeling well. My main starter
(Ashley Ceithaml) is not feel-
ing well. We just got down
early and it's hard to come
Amanda Smith started in
place of Ceithaml and strug-
gled from the start. The
Yellow Jackets opened the
game with a five-run first
inning, led by Britney
Kinlaws two-run triple.
The Panthers responded in
the bottom of the first with a
couple of runs, bringing the
score to 5-2.
Alyssa Pradella scored off a
triple by Fiorela Valcarcel for
the Panthers first run of the
night. Valcarcel scored off a
single by Stefani Hosch to
tighten the gap on the score-
St. Augustine picked up
another run in the second
inning from Nicole Baran,
who got home on a single by
Chelsey Baker.
Nease added another run in

Wilson seeks his

release from UF


Reports out of Gainesville
indicate former Nease High
offensive lineman James
Wilson will seek to transfer
from Florida to another school,
most likely Wake Forest.
The 6'5", 305-pound Wilson
received a medical redshirt last
season after surgery on his left
knee to repair loose cartilage.
Rated as one of the nation's
top offensive linemen coming
out of high school, Wilson ini-
tially committed to the
University of Southern
California before the start of
his senior season at Nease. He
switched that commitment to
Florida, however, in January of
Wilson has said is unhappy
at the University of Florida and
is seeking to be released from
his Gators scholarship to trans-
fer to a smaller school. While
that release has yet to be grant-
ed by Florida head coach

Urban Meyer, there is specula-
tion that Wilson could follow
other Panthers stars such as
Hunter Haynes, Ted Stachitas,
Ramon Booi and Riley Haynes
to Wake Forest.
If Wilson does become a
Demon Deacon, he will have
to sit out the entire 2008 sea-
son as a result of the transfer.
That means he won't be able
to suit up until the 2009 sea-
son and will last have compet-
ed on the gridiron in
December of 2006 for Nease's
state championship game
against Tampa Plant at
Dolphin Stadium in Miami.
With the PLanthers, Wilson
won a Class 4A state champi-
onship in 2005 and finished as
runner-up the following year.
As a sophomore and junior
at Nease, Wilson blocked for
current Gators quarterback Tim
Tebow and his decision to
switch to Florida was to be a
reunion of the former team-

FormerJaguar Stroud seeks esh start in Buffalo

Former Jaguar Stroud seeks fresh start in Buffalo

Consider it the strange
ballad of Marcus Stroud,
who was traded from the
Jaguars to the Buffalo Bills last
The former University of
Georgia star was everything the
Jacksonville Jaguars expected
when he was selected in the
first round of the 2001 NFL
Draft. And for five years he was
practically unstoppable, wrack-
ing up records in tackles and
The 6-foot, 6-inch, 310-
pound Stroud and fellow
Jaguars defensive line mate
John Henderson (6'7", 335
ponds) formed the core of Jack
Del Rio's awesome defense.
They were about the most
feared tackles in the NFL.
Then, two years ago, Stroud
began getting injured. The
problem with his ankle was the
worst one. Ankle surgery in
2006 was just the start.
A bigger problem occurred in
November of 2007 when
Stroud drew a four-game sus-
pension for violating the
league's steroid policy.
Things came to a head last
season when Stroud played
only two quarters of the Jaguars
final 10 games that included
two postseason games. It was
probably his last stand.
The massive defensive tackle
played in nine games on the


season and finished with 22
tackles (19 solo and three
sacks) while missing five games
because of the ankle.
Although some might think
Stroud's request for a trade
from the Jaguars was surpris-
ing, the wear and tear on his
29-year-old body was obvious.
Marcus had strangely been
unhappy here for two years.
The suspension didn't help.
For the last year he has not
been the Marcus Stroud we
used to know. One didn't find
him joking and kidding in the
locker room.
Strangely, the more success-
ful the three-time Pro Bowl
player became, the more sullen
he acted.

In 2005, Stroud inked a
$31.5 million contract as the
Jaguars showed appreciation
for his past performances.
Now, Stroud says a new start
is what he needs and maybe
relocating to Buffalo will give
him that.
He'll arrive in upstate New
York with a career total of 22
sacks and 457 tackles per-
haps just the tonic the Bills
need for their ailing defense.
He'll leave his old pal
Henderson here in Jacksonville
to pick up the slack at defen-
sive tackle. To fill Stroud's
vacancy, the Jaguars will rely
upon veteran Rob Meier, who
started nine games last season.
Stroud also leaves a goal for
other players to try to match:
Three Pro Bowl appearances
and six years of league-wide
respect for his abilities.
Off the field, Marcus has
been known for his devotion
to family. He paid for his
mother, Thelma McDonald, to
attend nursing school and he
bought her a home. Stroud's
participation in numerous
charity events, supported by
.fellow Jaguars and other play-
ers, made him well-known
throughout the greater
Jacksonville community.
The saddest thing about
Stroud's departure from
Jacksonville is remembering his
brilliance before injuries took

Marcellus Wiley in 2006. Stroud was traded to the Buffalo Bills for a pair of draft picks last week.

their toll. He was credited with
being a leader in the locker
room as well as on the field.

It will take a great deal of tal-
ent to replace the massive for-
mer Bulldog, a man regarded as

a local star as well as one of the
most feared defensive lineman
in the NFL.
