Funds, flexibility


top schools' list


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
While St. Johns County'
School District officials brace
for legislative funding cuts,
they have a message for legis-
lators: If you have to cut, at
least let the district decide
how to spend the dwindling
funds.
"We're in contact with our
legislators to put the funding
back or give us more flexibil-
ity [in spending]," School
Board member Bill Fehling of
Ponte Vedra Beach said
Tuesday.
"Unfortunately, every year
we get dinged, and we just
keep muddying through."
Although there is nothing
new about the state telling
school districts how to spend
state money, this year "it's
more highlighted" because of
budget-cutting, Fehling said
in a telephone interview.
"We understand where-
they're coming from,"
Fehling said of the Florida
Legislature, acknowledging
that the state, like local gov-
ernments, is looking for ways
to cut.
"Our frustration is [that]
they're not allowing us any
flexibility to use the funding
available to us in ... the best
way that we think it would
serve the students of St.
Johns County."
For example, he said, there


Bill Fehling


are proposals in the
Legislature to cut funding to
special needs programs. That
includes funding for
advanced academics as well
as for students traditionally
considered "special needs,"
he said.
But there is also a proposal
to increase funding for some
teacher bonuses, adding $47
million statewide, Fehling
said.
"The teachers [in St. Johns
County and elsewhere] are
saying, 'Put that in the class-
room,' Fehling said.
That decision would be
made at the local level "if we
were given flexibility over
our budget," Fehling said.
"It's getting to the point of
having no control over

Choices limited when funding cut


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
Although parents may wish to chip
in when funds are cut from schools,
they are limited in what they can do,
said School Board member Bill
Fehling of Ponte Vedra Beach.
Private money cannot be used for
school spending that would eliminate
parity among schools or between gen-
ders, Fehling said.
For example, private money cannot
be used to supplement teacher salaries
to extend the school day, he said.
The idea is that public education
should not divide "the haves and the
have nots," he said.
As the Florida Legislature continues
to look for cuts to education, calls are


going out for parents and others to
contact their legislators, as was done
recently by Nease High Principal
Linda Thomson.
With the Florida Senate considering
cutting funding for advanced academ-
ic programs such as Advanced
Placement (AP) and International
Baccalaureate (IB), both of which are
offered at Nease, Thomson implored
parents to contact their representa-
tives and "educate them on the value
of these programs."
In her weekly e-mail message Friday,
Thomson said the proposal would cut
about one-third from what the state
contributes for every student who
passes an AP or IB examination.
Passing scores can equate to

Wanted: Your ideas for

new children's museum


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER

A start-up children's museum
warts your ideas and has scheduled a
"brainstorming" session in Ponte
Vedra Beach Tuesday.
The meeting begins at noon at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library,
where guests can learn about plans
for the Children's Museum of St.
Johns.
"It's a chance for us to present the
vision and concept behind the muse-
um and lay out a proposed timetable
for making it all happen," said
Jennifer Koppman,a board member
of the children's museum.
"But, it's also a chance to brain-
storm and invite ideas and feedback
from the public."
The meeting is one of several being
held around the county by organizers
of the museum, which got its start
last year at a child's birthday party.
Wendy Philcox, museum vice pres-
ident, and Kathy Weed were at the
party with their children and began
talking about the children's museum
in Charleston, S.C., which opened in
2003.
Weed is originally from Charleston,


and Philcox has family and friends
there.
"It's so funny how a chance meet-
ing can make all the difference,"
Philcox said. "The Children's
Museum of the Low Country is just
wonderful, and we said how we
wished we had something like this,
how we need something like this in
St. Johns County."
The two moms started writing let-
ters to city council members and
researching what it would take to
open a children's museum. Preschool
teachers Jenni Jackson and Kathy
Marquis and another mom, Susan
Connor, who has experience in fund-
raising, joined their commitment to
bringing the museum to the area.
"What really makes a children's
museum tick is when
children are learning while they're
having fun," Philcox said.
"Self-paced, self-learning is sort of a
grassroots movement to have these
kinds of unstructured learning in an
informal setting. Many of the chil-
dren's museums around the country
are hands-on and are unique to their
community. We hope it will be a great

"This may be the only summer of
their lives that they can't wait for fall
to come so they can get in the new
school," Gene Baker, Ponte Vedra
High's athletic director, told parents
of Landrum Middle School students
Tuesday.
Baker was filling in at Lapdrum for
Principal Greg Speziale on the first of
three days of registration for Landrum
eighth graders who will attend the
new school, scheduled to open in
August.
Liza Kunz6, assistant, principal for
Ponte Vedra High, and two counselors
are handling registrations.
"It always helps to have somebody


directing traffic on registration day,"
said Baker, filling in for Speziale, who
was in meetings. Baker also was pro-
viding pencils.
"Eighth graders are famous for not
having all the materials they need
with them," said Baker.
Kunz6 said students got their regis-
tration materials early.
"We mailed their teacher recom-
mendations and a sheet with all their
elective choices home," she said.
"They're supposed to discuss that
with their parents, make their choic-
es, then turn it in with us. We answer
any Aluestions they may have."
The high school is being build just
south of Nocatee Parkway about one

Cuts loom

-SCHOOLS, from A-1
what's good for St. Johns
County."
In the meantime, one cost-
cutting measure has been put
in place, he said: cutting sum-
mer weeks to four from five to
save on energy costs for air
conditioning.
But that brings into question
the use of schools by other
organizations, such as those
who lease space for church
services.
The district may put individ-
ual thermostats on a select
room in a school, allowing that
room to be cooled for a limited
time, Fehling said.
Although the district is not
planning its budget until the
final figures come from
Tallahassee, Fehling said some
programs have been looked at
for funding cuts, such as bus
transportation for out-of-zone
students and activities, as well
as stopping plans to put a serv-
ice technician and a nurse at
every school, he said.


Private funding walks 'fine line'
o PARITY, from A-1


college credit.
Although each AP test taken
costs a school about $80, that
cost would likely not be
allowed to be paid with private
funding, Fehling said.
Legislators "frown upon
well-to-do counties trying to
raise money and offer pro-
grams that are not necessarily
what the Legislature thinks is
basic education," he said.
"It is a fine line," he said.


Parents would be allowed to
raise money for the school
library, he said, and they are
able to beef up a school's sup-
ply of computers, as is done in
some Ponte Vedra schools.
But other proposed projects
have not passed muster, he
said. One was a field house pro-
posed by parents for Nease
High School. That would not
be allowed because other high
schools in the district were not


offered the same facility.
Another proposal, made
about two years ago by parents
in one Ponte Vedra Beach
neighborhood, offered private
funding to pay for the school
bus to pick up students at
times different from those set
by the School District.
That was not allowed,
although parents could have
chartered a bus and paid its
driver, Fehling said.


Cameras eyed for busy intersection


Museum would join growing list
0 HANDS-ON, from A-1


FROM STAFF
Cameras to spot law-break-
ing drivers at a busy Neptune
Beach intersection are being
considered, pending the pas-
sage of Jacksonville legislation
on which.the city could piggy-
back.
"We've looked into it," said
Neptune Beach City Manager
Jim Jarboe. "It depends on
whether the state will allow it."
If cameras are allowed, the
city may consider installing


them at the five-way intersec-
tion on Penman Road, where
Florida Boulevard and Forest
Boulevard intersect.
The cameras are aimed at
reducing the number of drivers
who run red lights by taking a
picture of a license plate when
a car goes through a red light.
A citation is then sent to the
violator via mail.
Currently, state law requires
that an officer witness the


offense.
But the city of Jacksonville
has looked into an ordinance
that would allow unattended
cameras, and Neptune Beach
may' be able to "piggyback" on
the legislation, according to
Jarboe.
Both Jarboe and Police Chief
David Sembach said that it is
not definite that the city would
install the cameras, even if
Jacksonville's bill passes.

resource for families."
Philcox said it is hoped the
museum will be located within
an eight-mile radius of down-
town St. Augustine.
"We are still in the early
stages but we are about to go
into high gear in terms of get-
ting a site nailed down,"
Philcox said. "We are looking
at some specific possibilities
and we are hoping we can get
something donated, either a
building or land. The State of
Florida Division of Cultural
Affairs is about to lose some
major funding so we realize it's
going to depend on private
donors and foundations."
Word of the budding muse-
um has spread as organizers
have set up booths at festivals
such as Ancient City Kids Day
in December and the
Lighthouse Festival in St.
'Augustine last month.
Activities they provided

ride a bicycle on Pope Road,

ed by age group (6-7, 8-10 and

the Timucuan Indians used to
decorate their clay pottery and
make shell jewelry.
Hands-on exhibits will be
targeted to young children and
will relate to the history and
environment of Northeast
Florida.
Philcox said the group has
lots of ideas for the museum,
but she didn't want to elabo-
rate on details before a site is
located.
Programs such as classes,
workshops and camps are also
in the plans. Part of the
research and planning for the
museum is in collaboration
with the Association of
Children's Museums
(www.childrensmuseums.org).
According to that web site,
the number of children's muse-
ums in the United States has
grown since 1975, when they
numbered 38. Between 1976
and 1990, 80 others opened,
and an additional 100 have


opened since 1990.
The association estimates it
takes three to five years to get a
children's museum up and run-
ning from concept to opening.
"We can't lay out a timetable
at this point, but we want to
aim for within the three-year
range," Philcox said. "Once we
have a site that will give us
some momentum."

OPINION


OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH

A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY

NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES


April 9, 2008


The Leader's Opinion

Time for Jax Beach

to be full post office

Jacksonville Beach City Councilors are angry they can't
seem to get a straight answer from postal authorities about
where a post office will be located after 2009, when the cur-
rent lease expires on church-owned land at 7th Avenue
North.
Oh, the city officials have tried. They have wailed and lit-
erally gnashed their teeth over their collective inability to
pin North Florida postal officials down on where the
Jacksonville Beach branch will be located.
Maybe they should pursue another path one that has
already quietly been suggested to the city by a Jacksonville
Beach resident who was 'once in charge of the facilities pro-
gram for the North Florida Postal District.
Postal retiree Howard Shumate suggested, in a February
letter to Jacksonville Beach's City Manager, that city offi-
cials solicit U.S. Congressmen to get Jacksonville Beach
established as a post office, instead of being a branch of the
Jacksonville Post Office.
This way, Jacksonville Beach would be assigned a post-
master instead of the postmaster in Jacksonville being
responsible for the Beach. Atlantic Beach could then be
made a branch of the Jacksonville Beach Post Office and the
future would be secured for a permanent.postal facility in
Jacksonville Beach, the commercial core of the Beaches.
Jacksonville Beach is independent of Jacksonville and cer-
tainly there are many arguments to be made for creating a
separate post office and postmaster in the city.
The change would help preserve the Beaches' separate
identity. More importantly, establishing a separate post
office at Jacksonville Beach would preserve local postal serv-
ices in the future. Postmasters rank higher than station
managers in the post office world and that means more
clout which can matter when decisions of import are
being made.
We believe that some political muscle and expertise
would probably be required to effect such a change on the
federal level. Jacksonville Beach city officials, who are clear-
ly still angry about the recent lack of communication and
cooperation, should be able to muster the will to enlist the
support of congressmen in the matter.
Ponte Vedra Beach has its own post office and postmaster.
Jacksonville Beach should have the same.
City officials have the chance here to do more than com-
plain and threaten that postal authorities should take a fly-
ing leap. Indeed, the city can- and should leap at the
opportunity to secure a postal presence for the commercial
hub and population center of the Beaches.


Letters to the editor:

Mayo's open house was great


To the editor:
I wish to speak for many in
at etpdance. at, the Sunday,
March 30, open house of the
Mayo Clinic. I can't count the
times I told people in charge
that this open house to the
community went beyond
what I would ever had
thought.
I expected cheese and
punch, but to my amazement
there were many varieties of
cheese, breads, spinach/arti-
choke dips plus others.
Vincent was so nice and rec-
ommended the excellent
ranch dip. Desserts abounded.
The brownies were out of this
world. They even had sushi.
And now to the occasion -
to show off the new hospital
which they did. Every person

working there had a sincere
smile and gave helpful
answers to every question,
I've never seen. such a big
operating room and I was told
all 14 of them are that big.
The pre op and post op rooms
are very open, not confining.
The 21 treatment rooms for
the ER are also large and very
relaxing. Everything was how
I would want if I was in need
of surgery or an ER visit.
Thank you Mayo Clinic for
myself and everyone else who
attended for such a wonderful
open house. Those of you
who didn't go, you missed a
good one. You should have
been there.

More letters to the editor:

Mayport Road medians will do more harm than good


To the editor:
STOP, LOOK and LISTEN:
Mayport Road Design flaws
and tax money wasted!
I have lived off Mayport
Road for 27 years and seen
many changes. Some were
good and others not. I saw it
grow from two lanes to four
and then five (center turn
lane). Then, we got sidewalks
which were desperately need-
ed for years but came only
after many pedestrian inci-
dents. Later, we got traffic
lights and they made sense
(except the Buccaneer Trail
intersection which changes
regardless of traffic flow).
Now, we are getting some-
thing that we do not need!
Plus, it will probably be obso-
lete or need to be changed
again by the time it is fin-
ished. I am talking about the
Mayport Road Median. If the
barricades and barrels are any
indication of the design, it will
be a disaster for those of us
who live and travel the road
daily. The turn lanes will NOT
be long enough for the


amount of drivers making
turns. Another thing is that
access from roads not at desig-
nated intersections will
require drivers to make U-
turns (if they are allowed).
Already, I see drivers getting
frustrated and hitting the bar-
rels. I can only imagine what
it will be like when the medi-
ans arrive.
I do not remember any pub-
lic hearings on this project
and wonder who performed
the traffic study (if there was
one) and how much time was
spent on it. Did they consider
boat and tractor trailer usage?
Did they consider the cycle of
Navy deployments? Were
there actual vehicle usage sta-
tistics to justify the need for
these medians or did someone
want the road to "look pretty"
despite traffic safety?
I see problems at the
Atlantic Beach Post Office,
Plaza Drive, and Navy
Commissary, Assisi Lane, A1A
and Wonderwood Road inter-
sections.
I believe this project is a


waste of tax dollars (which are
scarce now) and will require
more wasted money when the
cities discover they made a
mistake. Their. error will be
that the road will require a
redesign when they realize the
havoc made by the medians
and decide to change back to
something that works! Forget
about what is aesthetically
pleasing to the eye. Be practi-
cal and do something right
(for a change).
If Atlantic Beach wants to
beautify their section of the
road, then by all means do it.
But Jacksonville should recon-
sider and not waste the
money and go along with
what appears to be a very bad
idea. I see too many flaws and
good money will be spent
after bad when it is all done.
Mike Wydra
Jacksonville
P.S. I live in Jacksonville but
was given an Atlantic Beach
mailing address for the post
office on Mayport Road.

Eleanor Blanchart, from bot-
tom to top, and Capt. Leonard
Blanchart are recognized by
UNF President John A.
Delaney and Pierre Allaire,
vice president for Institutional
Advancement at UNF at a cer-
emony recently. The
Blancharts, who live in
Queens Harbor, were recog-
nized for their $1 million gift to
the University of North Florida.
The donation will be matched
at 75 percent by the State of
Florida and will fund several
new student scholarships.
Leonard Blanchart is a retired
Merchant Marine captain and
river boat pilot. His career suc-
cess, coupled with successful
financial stock market invest-
ments, influenced him to help
students who lacked the
resources to attend college. In
1989, the Jacksonville couple
established a scholarship
endowment at UNF for stu-
dents who graduated from
Bishop Kenny High School.
The scholarship endowment
was the first such endowment
established at UNF. Over the
years, the Blancharts have
added to the fund and have
taken advantage of the state
matching gift program. With
the couple's recent gift, the
value of their scholarship
endowment has reached
$2.25 million. Five high
schools were added this year,
including Bishop Snyder,
Episcopal, St. Joseph, Trinity
Christian and University
Christian. This recent gift will
fund approximately 10 new
scholarships a year. Currently,
more than 20 students have
received scholarships from the
Capt. and Mrs. Leonard
Blanchart Maritime Endowed
Scholarship Fund. The aver-
age scholarship award is $
4,000.

UF: Top 10 'What Not to Do' list for taxpayers


From the University of Florida
News Desk
Tax season is one of the most
stressful times of the year. And a
University of Florida expert cau-
tions against making common
mistakes that can complicate
matters.
So Michael Gutter, an assis-
tant professor in family finan-
cial management with UF's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, has com-
piled& iistfof Americans' top~,0
tax-season gaffes.
1. Not making use of VITA
(Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance) sites. If your taxes
aren't terribly complicated-you
don't own a business or have a
lot of investment income to
report-then VITA is an under-
used resource worth checking
out.
"It's a free service, done by
people who literally work with
tax code day in and day out."
Check with the Florida
Prosperity Campaign,
www.prosperitycampaign.com,
to find your closest VITA site.
2: Not keeping organized
records and missing deductions
or credits you deserve.
Gutter said taxpayers should
keep in mind that the tax code
is designed to promote and
encourage good-citizen type
behavior: Getting an education,
taking care of your children,
buying a home, giving to chari-
ty, etc.
"A tax credit is a dollar for


Atlantic Laser

sells its own

computer

division to

employee

FROM STAFF
The computer division of
Atlantic Laser was purchased
by IT Support Solutions for an
undisclosed amount, according
to Patsy Underwood, President
of Atlantic Laser.
Brad Wilson, president of IT
Support Solutions has been an
employee and lead computer
tech of Atlantic Laser for
almost 7 years. Prior to coming
to Atlantic Laser, he was a certi-
fied technician with Gateway
Computers and previously a
Supervisor with AOL. He
founded IT Support Solutions,
Inc., to support both commer-
cial and residential IT issues.
Atlantic Laser is an office
products company founded in
1992 and offers a full-line of
office products, builds compat-
ible laser printer toner car-
tridges and sells and services
laser and ink jet printers, fax
machines, multi-function
machines, and plotters.
During a brief transitional
period, IT Support Solutions
will remain at the Atlantic
Laser facility at 1521 Penman
Rd., Jacksonville Beach.


dollar reduction in your tax lia-
bility, so by not taking advan-
tage of it, you're really giving
away your own money."
3. Not using your kids to your
best (tax-saving) advantage. If
you have children, Gutter said, a
number of tax credits might be
relevant for you. If you have col-
lege-age offspring, there are
even more.
Go to www.irs.gov and search
"education tax credit."
as 4 W artrealizing that if you're
_strugg6ag" fin iicialty;o yofi
might be eligible for the Earned
Income Tax Credit, a credit for
low-income workers. Even if
your income isn't high enough
to require a tax return, you can
still get the credit.
Go to www.irs.gov and type
"Earned Income Tax Credit" in
the search box.
5. Spending your tax-refund
windfall instead of filling out
IRS Form 8888. The 2-year-old
form can be used to automati-
cally funnel your tax refund
into one or more accounts, such
as a savings account or an IRA or
other safe place where you
won't be tempted to spend it on
an impulse item. Go to
www.form8888.org
He advises taxpayers to use
tax refunds sensibly: Reduce
debt first, put money toward
retirement or pay bills.
6. Not realizing you can go
back and amend previous years'
returns.
If you find this year that you

haven't been taking a tax deduc-
tion you're legitimately eligible
for, Gutter says, it's perfectly
acceptable to go back and file
amended returns for those
years.
7. Buying into the hype over
speedy refund anticipation
loans. Unless you are in a true
financial emergency, tax refund
anticipation loans are "not typi-
cally in people's best interest,"
Gutter said. The loans are simi-
lar to'paycheck advance loans,
h' %d."" '
8. Not realizing you can make
IRA contributions for the previ-
ous year up until tax filing day.
So until April 15, 2008, you can
contribute to your IRA for tax
year 2007.
9. Delaying filing a return
without a good reason.
This just leaves your refund in
the government's hands when it
could be accruing interest for
you, Gutter said. There are some
instances where it might make
sense to sit on one's tax return
until the last minute-such as
waiting to pay Uncle Sam if you
still owe taxes.
10. Breaking the law by lying
on your 'taxes or not filing a
return at all. "We always tell
people, even if you owe the IRS
money, work on it-you're not
going to get away with this for
very long," he said. "And if you
don't know how to file your
taxes, get some help. But not fil-
ing is not in your best interest."

Nease nine reach finals
All nine of the National
Merit semifinalists at Nease
High School have advanced
to the finals.
They are Kelly Boyd, Danny
Chapman, Julian Goldhagen,
Sydney Greene, Olivia
Humbarger, Melissa Kunkel,
Karly Lorbeer, Nick Ogburn
and Billy West.
Finalists, top scorers on the
Preliminary Scholastic
Aptitude Test as juniors and
the Scholastic Aptitude Test as
seniors, typically have numer-
ous opportunities for scholar-
ships through corporations or
colleges, and some are select-
ed for National Merit
Scholarship of $2,500.
AP, IB funds threatened
A Florida Senate bill would
cut finding for academically
advanced programs, Nease
Principal Linda Thomson
reports.
Senate Bill 1746 would cut
more than 30 percent from
existing programs for
Advanced Placement (AP)
courses, which allow high
schoolers to get college credit,
the International
Baccalaureate (IB) program,
which also can earn students
college credit, and AICE, an
advanced program at St.
Augustine High.
AP and IB classes are offered
at Nease High, and AP classes
are planned for Ponte Vedra
High School, which opens in
August.
In her most recent weekly
e-mail note, Thomson urges
parents to contact their state
legislators.


No. 2 as college-ready
St. Johns County School
District high school graduates
had the second-highest com-
posite score in the state on
the recently-released
Readiness for College Report.
This report is based on the
placement test performance
of Florida high school gradu-
ates who enrolled in public
postsecondary education in
the state during the academic
year following graduation.
The most recent results are
based on students who gradu-
ated in the 2006 school year
with a standard diploma from
a Florida public high school
and entered a Florida public
university or community col-
lege as degree-seeking stu-
dents.
On its composite score, in
which all three areas tested
(math, reading and writing)
are considered together, 75.6
percent of St. Johns County
graduates were ready, com-
pared with 62.9 percent of
high school graduates
statewide.
This figure places St. Johns
County as No. 2 in the state,
with a 7.1 percent increase
over last year's composite
score.
In the writing category 88.2
percent of St. Johns County
students passed compared
with 82.5 percent statewide.
In reading 84.1 percent of
Johns County students scored
above the minimum com-
pared with 69.9 percent for
the state, and in math 80.7
percent of St. Johns County
students passed compared
with the state average of 70
percent.
These figures place St. Johns

loda\'s hectic schedules keep us on the
go, and getting the uninterrupted sleep
Sres'eacjihers sa\ we need can be a challenge.
iza \ A top-quality mattress can be the first step
S to quality\ sleep. Dave [o\, factory-trained
ll... and -certified mattress specialist and owner
of Bedtime LISA in lacksonville Beach, can
help \ou tind a mattress tailored to your
individual preferences so you can get the
lest \ou need and deserve.
Familv-owned and operated and cele-
biating five )ears in business in
lacksonville Beach, Bedtime USA is your
mattress headquarters. Dave and his staff
have the expertise and inventory you need
to help )ou find the right mattress at the
right price.
"We are not a chain, yet we are one of the
i onl\ stores in northeast Florida and south-
est e tGeiorgia that carries such a complete
line ot mattresses and bedding products,"
said Dave, who himself has more than 20
years of experience in the business and has
lived at the Beaches for nine years VWe
have nm'ie than 411 mattresses on display,
and %e'll help you tind the one that's just
right for you and \our budget!"
No imaitter what t\ pe of mattress you're
looking for, Bedtime USA most likely has it.
The list of brand-name products available
is impressive, including mattresses by
Tempur-Pedic, Simmons, Englander,
Restonic, Spring Air, Chattam & Wells, and
futons by Night and Day Furniture and
Anchor Furniture.
Bedtime USA carries all nine models of
the popular Tempur-Pedic brand includ-
ing the GrandBed and the new Alura Bed.
"Tempur-Pedic is often described as the
*R "Cadillac" of mattresses because of its
extravagant design and unsurpassed luxu-
ry," Dave said. "No matter what type of
mattress you prefer a natural latex mat-
tress, a visco-elastic memory foam mat-


tress, a traditional innerspring mattress or
any combination of these, we carry it," he added.
The importance of a good night's sleep becomes apparent,
when Dave reminds customers that they'll spend one third
of their lives in bed. "So at Bedtime USA customer comfort
is our no. 1 priority comfort in a mattress and comfort in
its price," Dave said.
"Because we have so many mattresses in our inventory, we
can offer our customers the most comfortable mattress avail-
able in the most comfortable price range for them," he
added. "For example, we have twin sets for as low as $199.95
and queen sets for as low as $299.95."
Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the
lo est price the manufacturer allows, which means queen
lcinmpui-litj. l miiatreses start as lo w as 1,199.
But Bedtime USA has more than the mattress of your
dreams Ipun intended. "We also carry a wide selection of
adjustable beds plus bed frames, platform-type beds, head-
boards, futons, futon covers, pillows, bolsters, bed pads,
mattress protectors and even some beachy' decorative
items," Dave said.
Expecting overnight guests this summer? Bedtime USA
can help. '"Ve carry Night and Day Furniture, which manu-
factures some of the best futons available," Dave said. "They
offer 40 different designs of futons, and we showcase 10
models in our store, not to mention more than 300 fabric
samples from SIS Fabrics, a leader in designer furniture
upholstery." Plus, Bedtime LISA adds a futon mattress cover


Bedtime USA owner Dave Fox says there's only one thing better than sleeping
at the beach and that's sleeping at the beach on one of the top-of-the-line
mattresses, adjustable beds and futons available at Bedtime USA in
Jacksonville Beach.


with every futon frame and mattress purchase.
But Bedtime USA offers even more than wide selection
and variety, according to Dave. "We also provide a level of
personalized customer service not found in many larger
chains and that makes us different," he said. "At Bedtime
USA we take care of our customers, work with them one on
one and help them make sound purchasing decisions."
Bedtime USA also offers free delivery throughout the
Greater Jacksonville area on a schedule convenient for cus-
tomers and their schedules. Some retailers offer a three-hour
or even half-day delivery "window." Not Bedtime USA. "Not
only do we give our customers a one-hour deliver\' schedule
but we also give them a call when the delivery truck leaves
the store," Dave said.
Stop by Bedtime USA and talk with Dave to see how you
can treat yourself to some well-deserved rest. Be sure to ask
about special financing, too, which offers zero-percent
financing over three years for Tempur-Pedic products and
zero-percent financing for 12 months for all other merchan-
dise totaling more than $800.

Plaza Shopping Center across from Dunkin' Donuts, and just
one block east of Penman Road.

One of Florida's all-time grid legends influenced Loyd


(Part two of two parts)

By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
In 21 years as a head football coach, Mike
Loyd, a former NFL quarterback, has never
had a losing record.
In five years at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M
College, Loyd went 47-7. His winning percent-
age (.870) is still the best in school history.
But steering down-on-its-luck Joplin (Mo.)
High to a break-even season in 1997 and a
share of its first conference crown in more
than a decade may have been Loyd's most
memorable gridiron accomplishment.
"We won the Ozark Conference for the first
time in 11 years. When I reflect back on it, that


might have been one of my
better coaching jobs," Loyd, .............................................
the newly hired head football
coach at Ponte Vedra High Coaching
School, recalled in a recent
interview. football is

It's what Loyd learned in his I'm very
first high school coaching stint
in Florida under legendary don't get m

coach Billy Livings.
"He had a great personality important ti
and a great way with kids,"
Loyd said about Livings, who
retired from coaching in 2005
as the state's third winningest Mi
coach of all time. Ponte V
"He was a people guy and head foo
the kids loved him. He always
had a smile on his face and he
never went higher than the high school level."

Sunshine State kickoff

In 1982, Loyd had just spent the summer
playing pro football in Canada when he was
offered a job coaching defensive backs at Vero
Beach High, where Livings had led the Indians
to the Class 4A title the year before.
Before being courted to the Sunshine State in

1980, Livings compiled a 103-22-4 record at
Alabama's Jeff Davis High.
"He's the Bear Bryant of high school foot-
ball," said current Vero Beach High football
coach Gary Coggin in a recent phone inter-
view.
"Once you coach for Billy, you admire him
so much. There came a point where he no
longer coached kids, he coached coaches."
Loyd fondly remembers his two short sea-
sons under Livings, first as a secondary coach
and later as Vero's offensive coordinator.
According to Loyd, Livings was a Bobby
Bowden-like figure who treated his players and
coaches with the utmost respect.
Coggin said Livings was a "father figure" to
coaches in two states and a person of "high
ethics."
"He didn't embarrass you on
..................... the field. He allowed you to

ball coach "Mike Loyd was not only a
good coach, but he had a great
rapport with the kids. You
knew he was going to be a head coach one day
on the college level."
Livings (211-85 in 26 years at Vero Beach)
was a former University of Kentucky center
who modeled his coaching career on the teach-
ings of Bryant and Vince Lombardi.
"Everybody followed what Coach Bryant did
in those days," said Livings, who won a state
title at Montgomery's Jeff Davis High in 1978
and coached in Alabama for 20 years before

coming to Florida.
"I also studied what Vince Lombardi did or
said. And I read all the books John Wooden
wrote."
One tenet Livings lived by: If a team con-
stantly improves, winning will take care of
itself.
"I think the No. 1 thing that I learned from
Coach Livings was that you have to treat your
kids with respect," said Loyd, whose worst reg-
ular-season mark was 5-5 in 1996 and '97 at
Joplin High.
"I know that sounds corny, but I really feel
like our job is to build self-esteem, not tear it
down. You treat kids the way you want your
own kids to be treated. I even did that at col-
lege."

Oklahoma innovator

Loyd stepped down as Northeastern
Oklahoma's head coach in 1995 for a very per-
sonal reason: His older sister was terminally ill


with cancer.
Joplin is only a 30-minute drive from
Northeastern Oklahoma, but Loyd said he still
needed to be closer to his sister.
"I wanted to be around her. That's why I left
college coaching," Loyd recalled.
"Joplin had fallen on hard times, but we had
two decent years [3-2 and 4-1 in conference
play]. I'm glad I did it. I wouldn't change any-
thing."
Garrick McGee, a former all-american quar-
terback at Northeastern Oklahoma, said Loyd's
biggest achievement as a junior college coach
was not winning more than 87 percent of his
games, but his ability to mentor a "melting
pot" of players.
"Coach Loyd cared about you as a person,
not just as an athlete," said McGee in a phone
interview from his office at the University of
Arkansas, where he is the quarterback coach
under Bobby Petrino.
"He attacks problems, not people."
Loyd left Vero Beach in 1984 to sign with-the
USFL's Oklahoma Outlaws.
He played behind Doug Williams when the
Outlaws went 6-10 in their inaugural year.
After that season, Loyd accepted his first
high school coaching job at Tulsa Memorial
High.
"I was.told, 'You will not win here,' Loyd
recalled.
"But our first season, we were 6-4 and went
for two against Tulsa Union and got beat 7-6."
At Tulsa Memorial, Loyd installed an early
version of the one-back offense, a scheme he
brought from the USFL.
Even during his early days at Vero Beach,
Loyd knew how to dismantle a defense.
"Mike taught us plenty about attacking the
secondary," recalled Livings.
After Loyd went 31-13 in four years at Tulsa
Memorial, his offensive exploits caught the eye
of junior college coach Glen Wolfe, then the
head coach at Northeastern Oklahoma.
Wolfe, who won a national title in 1980,
hired Loyd in 1990 to be his offensive coordi-
nator and heir apparent.
"Glen wanted to learn more about throwing
the football," Loyd recalled. "At the time, a
wide-open formation was three wide receivers
or split backs with two wide receivers."
Loyd ran a balanced, one-back attack for the

FISHING


Sheepshead fishing better with each tide change


Bottom fishing over the
party grounds remains
the best bet for another
week. The sheepshead fishing
last week just got better on
each tide change. Muddy water
cooled the surf fishing a bit
but that will change as soon as
the wind changes.
Capt. Scott Reynolds and the
anglers on the "King Neptune"
reported great action on each
trip last week. Sunday was par-
ticularly good. The "Neptune"
report included 30 snapper
with their largest weighing 32
pounds. Other catches includ-
ed a king, a 16-pound grouper,
a big blackfin, two flounder, a
Spanish and lots of beeliners
and sea bass.
Both Wednesday and
Thursday were excellent days
aboard the "Mayport Princess."
On Wednesday, Houston
Stevens led the catching with
his three 10-pound snapper
and a stringer full of sea bass
and beeliners.
On Thursday, anglers piled
25 snapper on the cleaning
table along with four big cobia,
the largest a 50-pounder.
Coolers were also filled with
extra large beeliners and sea
bass.

his "Sea Dancer" with Duane
Schmidt and Clayton Doerr

caught eight snapper to seven
pounds, three grouper to 14
pounds, a pair of flounder and
a dozen sea bass.
Veteran angler John Dyrssen
fished the canal with Ray
Meadows last Thursday. They
had to work hard to net their
four speckled trout and a
flounder.
David King with his wife
Marsha and friends Bill and
Ann White gave us our best
out of town report this week.
They spent ten days fishing
and sight-seeing Panama. On
one day they caught 30 pea-
cock bass and on another
picked up 25 rainbow trout.
Most all of their fish were
caught on artificial.

Capt. Bob Ulrich, fishing with his wife Sarah about 25 miles east
of Mayport on March 22, caught this 27-pound red snapper
.along with a dozen other snapper.


last Friday along the big jetties
and caught 18 sheepshead to
six pounds and a 27-pound
red.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier last week, Jeremy Martin
brought a 35-pound drum over
the rail. Maria Gibson used
dead shrimp around the pil-
ings to snag a six-pound
sheepshead. Other anglers
caught whiting, drum, yellow-
mouth and blues. Lots of
muddy water hurt the fishing
over much of the week.
Buck Gergley fished on the
"King Neptune" last Thursday
and caught two snapper to
seven pounds and an 18-
pound jack.
James Gergley, Matt
Hamilton and Eric Goldstein
on the "Head Hunter"
anchored only once an caught
45 sheepshead. They released
17 other sheepshead and also
caught a [pair of reds.
Al Wiltshire and John
Burroughs anchored in the
river near their N.A.S. spot last
Monday morning and caught
five drum, two trout and 30
croakers.
Capt. Dave Sipler and his
guests Steve Titus and his son
Reese fished the river for 12
trout to 19 pounds and two
sheepshead. On a second trip
with Nick Watson, Capt. Dave
reports a catch of 10 trout, five
yellowmouth, four reds and
several blues and jacks.
Larry "Fishman" Finch
fished the surf in Jax Beach last
Thursday and caught six pom-
pano and 25 whiting. Larry
reports the pompano have
arrived and he continues to
use sand fleas as his favorite
bait.
Capt. Chris Rooney, William
Goodling, John Barrineau and
Allen from Charleston were
the last ones in last Sunday,
but their long ride paid off as
usual. They iced down eight
snapper to seven pounds, two
grouper, a 30-pound cobia and
dozens of sea bass and big bee-
liners.
Capt. Fred Hinkle with Eddie
Smith and Jamie and John
Graf fished from the "Daze
Off" last week and brought
home eight snapper, a grouper,
40 sea bass and five triggers.

OPINION



Can anything be learned during spring football?


Pity the poor college foot-
ball coaches when it
comes to spring games.
The fans never seem to be con-
tent with what they see, or else
go home so elated they can't
imagine a less than undefeated
national championship season
in the making.
Georgia coach Mark Richt,
who watched most of his
Bulldogs in action from the
press box before joining them
on the field, said he was satis-
fied with most of what he saw.
Although the score was a mod-


est 17-3 in favor of the Red
squad in rainy conditions, a
crowd of about 20,000 seemed
both pleased and expecting
more.
Richt's problems that his
Dawgs will probably be highly-
ranked in next fall's preseason
polls. It'll be tough for Georgia
to live up to such lofty projec-
tions.
Still, most coaches would
gladly accept that particular
problem. They'd rather have to
live up to a high ranking than
explain to fans and those who
pay their salaries why their

teams aren't right up there
* with the winners.
Georgia fans took the rain in
stride Saturday up in Athens,
seeing some good plays includ-
ing a 50-yard field goal and
some fine catches. But they
were denied and big plays by
new hero running back
Knowshon Mareno, who
f1e played only long enough to
gain 16 yards on the ground


and make a one-handed grab
for another 11 yards.
Mareno was on the field for
only 14 first-half snaps.
That's just enough to tease
the fans who want more.
Quarterback Matthew
Stafford was used sparingly, but
wasn't held out. He's a valuable
man to the Dogs, but Richt is
willing to take a chance on
Stafford not getting killed in an
'exhibition as Florida coach
Urban Meyer is with his phe-
nom, Tim Tebow, who has
been held out of action.
Tebow is trying to let an
injury heal. The former Nease
High star is everything to the
Gators well, along with
receiver/running back Percy
Harvin.
The latest word is that
Harvin had surgery on his
right heel Monday. Apparently
the procedure went well, but
Harvin won't be playing again
until preseason practice in the
summer.
That's a headache for Meyer.
Little wonder then that he
orders Tebow guarded like a


Brinks truck.
The Gators aren't crying,
however. They know they have
talent running out of their
ears, but just the same Meyer
would like to emerge from
Saturday's spring game with
everybody in pretty good
shape.
The Harvin injury, Meyer
says, isn't one that should
bother the player in the fall.
Nevertheless, having an impor-
tant figure ailing is not good.
On the brighter side, Meyer
says things are definitely look-
ing better along the defensive
line. He cited Matt Patchen as
one reason.
The freshman has so
impressed the staff, coaches
expect Patchen to have an
immediate impact when the
season opens.
Some cheer has also been
heard from Tallahassee where
new (well, second year) offen-
sive coordinator Jimbo Fisher
hopes to instill spunk into a
sagging Seminoles attack.
Fisher likes the way his wide-
outs are improving.


Quarterback Christian Ponder
has become the leading con-
tender to replace Drew
Weatherford behind center.
Scrimmages have displayed
Ponder's prowess.
Senor Gregg Carr, who is
bouncing back after a groin
injury, recently caught three
passes from Ponder and com-
bined Bert Reed and Richard
Goodman, totalled 16 catches
for 236 yards.
The Jimbo Fisher look seems
to be "catching on" over there
in Seminole land if you'll
excuse the pun.
Wile critics still talk about
venerable Bobby Bowden retir-
ing, old Bobby just keeps
going. It's as if his 70s are his
40s.
If Joe Paterno can keep
coaching Penn State at 81 years
of age, why not Bowden at 79?
Meanwhile, there is good
news for Jaguars fans: The
team opened its piggy bank to
ensure both head coach Jack
Del Rio and QB David Garrard
will be wearing Teal and Black
for the foreseeable future.

tary school PE, magnet school
busing, middle school athletics
and the venerable Brain Brawl
competition.
That's just the beginning.
How many underpaid teachers'
heads will be sent rolling before
it is all over?
School kids enjoying music in
the classroom better make the
most of it, who knows when
they will hear it again.
Legislators are getting their
guillotines oiled up for their
favorite sacrificial lamb: The
Arts. No theatre, gallery or fine
arts group will escape.
The threat of the knife has
not been ignored by the Beaches
Fine Arts Series. Since 1972, the
organization has brought world-
class musical performers to our
area. There is no telling how
many lives have been positively
affected by the BFAS. Moreover,
they have done it without
charging anyone a dime.
But BFAS is not sitting back on
its heels waiting for a sucker
punch; its plan is to become less
dependent on the whims of on-
again off-again state subsidies.
"They've told us not to expect
anything," said BFAS director,
Kathy Wallis, of Duval County's
contribution.
About 15 percent of the BFAS
annual budget of $350,000
came from Duval. The Cultural
Council of Jacksonville provided
another $52,000, all money that
BFAS won't see.
Now in its 22nd season, the
Beaches Fine Arts Series
Triathlons have grown not only
in the number of people
involved in them but in their
importance to the BFAS organi-
zation. The popular sprint


BFAS.
They can forget their water
phobia, for the duathlon, set for
April 19 at 8 a.m., will consist of
two 2-mile runs and a 12-mile
bike race. The course will be
entirely inside the developing
Nocatee area along CR210 in
Ponte Vedra.
Wallis said: "People have been
amazed at the beautiful area. It
is a wonderful place for a race
and there is very little traffic.
"This is an event that anyone
can do, it takes very little train-
ing and it's an easy race for a
cyclist, only 12 miles. They can
even do it as a team," Wallis
continued. "It starts with a two-
mile run, then a 12-mile bike
race, then finishes with another
two-mile run."
The earmark of the BFAS
sprint triathlons has always
been creative, unique awards,
attractive tee shirts, first-class
organization, great goody bags
and valuable raffle drawings.
The duathlon will be no differ-
ent. A carbon frameset worth
$1,699 has been donated by
Bike Fitters in Ponte Vedra. All

LOYD: Ready for newest gridiron challenge


Continued from B-1

most part in junior-college, and
coached three future NFL tail-
backs, including Lamar Smith, a
third-round pick of the Seattle
Seahawks.
Northeastern Oklahoma
appeared in three national
championship games while
Loyd was the head coach from
1991-95.
"At NEO, if you didn't win or
play for the national champi-
onship, it wasn't a successful
season," Loyd said.
"I've been where it's a busi-
ness. That's why I enjoy coach-
ing kids. You don't get rich
coaching high school, but you
get rewards in other ways and
that stuff is very satisfying."

Winning not end-all

After his two-year stint at
Joplin, Loyd headed high
school programs at McAlester
and Ardmore, Okla.
He led McAlester to the Class
5A state semifinals in 1999, a
week after knocking off the top-
ranked 5A team in the state.
At Ardmore, Loyd was 67-27
overall with eight consecutive
state playoff berths and two
state semifinal appearances.
In January, Loyd saw the
Ponte Vedra High football
opening advertised on the
Florida High School Athletic
Association website and threw


his hat into the ring.
"I've always wanted to get
back to Florida," said Loyd,
who inquired about the Vero
Beach football job when Livings
retired in 2005, but never for-
mally applied.
"Sometimes you get another
challenge in your career. But it's
not easy to leave a place after
eight years."
"Oklahoma is losing one of
the best coaches in the state,"
said McGee, whose late father
coached high school football at
Tulsa's Booker T. Washington
High.
"I'll always appreciate what
Coach Loyd did for me as an
athlete and a young man."
"I wish more NFL guys were
coaching at the high school
level," added Jim Hanifan,
Loyd's former football coach
with the St. Louis Cardinals.
"You learn more about the
game by coaching kids. You're
their minister and their surro-
gate father."
Hanifan, a former assistant
coach on Super Bowl teams
with the Washington Redskins
and the St. Louis Rams, said
Loyd was an accurate passer
who was always "cool, calm
and collected in the pocket."
Williams, the Super Bowl
XXII MVP who played with
Loyd in the USFL and succeed-
ed Eddie Robinson as head
coach at Grambling State
University, said he had his


"biggest thrill" coaching on the
high school level.
"Ain't nothing like it,"
Williams, now a personnel
executive with the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and a former high
school coach in Louisiana, said
in a phone interview.
"Not many people know this,
but my team [Northeast] beat
Peyton Manning's team
[Newman] in the state playoffs
his senior year."
Loyd may not be able to top
that, but winning alone hasn't
always been the end-all for
him.
Livings said he equated suc-
cess if his team gave its all on
any given Friday night.
"You're not a failure, just
because you lost a football
game," said Livings, who was
inducted into the Alabama
High School Athletic
Association's Hall of Fame in
2007.
Added Loyd, who will inau-
gurate spring football practice
at Ponte Vedra High in May:
"Coaching high school football
is not an ego thing for me. I
think it's a privilege to work
with young men and teach
them some life lessons.
"I'm very competitive, don't
get me wrong. But that's not
the most important thing. If
my kids can lay it on the line,
play as a team and give every-
thing they have, they are win-
ners."
