Vol. 45, No. 85

'Multi-use' path eyed for 210 east of bridge


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
A pedestrian and bicycle
path is being proposed on the
stretch of Palm Valley Road
that has long been considered
for four-laning, a widening
project that has caused fric-
tion in the community in
recent months and has been
opposed by some for years.
The 6,100-foot-long "multi-


use path" proposed from the
Palm Valley bridge to the
Mickler roundabout is among
$92.8 million in capital
improvement projects the St.
Johns County Commission
will consider during a work-
shop session Tuesday in St.
Augustine.
The capital projects on the
county's wish list may not all
survive the budget process,
which will culminate in


September with a budget for
the fiscal year beginning Oct.
1.
Other Ponte Vedra Beach
projects proposed for funding
are a sidewalk on Ponte Vedra
Boulevard ($200,000),
improvements to the intersec-
tion of Roscoe Boulevard and
Landrum Lane ($285,000), a
weir-endwall replacement on
Corona Road ($550,000) and
improvements to the


Intracoastal Wilderness area
drainage basin ($500,000).
Also proposed is $404,282
for lift upgrades at the Marsh
Landing waste water treat-
ment plant, $365,200 to con-
tinue the odor control project
at the Sawgrass waste water
treatment plant and $550,000
in state and county funds for
improvements in the Nocatee
preserve.
Joe Stephenson, St. Johns


County Public Works director,
said Thursday the $950,000
requested for the multi-use
path is only an estimate.
"Right now it's just a con-
cept," Stephenson said in a
telephone interview. If the
funding is approved, "then we
would initiate the design, and
they would then find out
what the right-of-way

Eagle has landed


at the Plantation

by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
A bald eagle family that has moved into an
established Ponte Vedra Beach neighborhood
is changing the way things are done around
there for at least the next five years.
Where American bald eagles live in St. Johns
County, humans must tread lightly.
The eagle nest, high in a pine tree along
Governors Road in the Plantation, is "kind of a
unique situation" because of its location in a
developed area, Ryan Mauch, an environmen-
tal specialist for St. Johns County, said
Wednesday.
"You have quite an extensive subdivision,"
he said, and eagles typically build in more
open areas.
The county's Land Development Code pro-
hibits development within 750 feet of a nest
tree and limits development within another
750 feet.
So any construction project within the pri-
mary zone must get a waiver from the code,
which also is required of some projects in the
secondary zone.
At least three waivers have already been
granted by the St. Johns-County Commisi.on
since the nest was verified Nov. 1, and two
more waivers are to be considered by the com-
mission Tuesday.
Each of the new waiver requests is for a back-
yard swimming pool at a home on Strong
Branch Drive in the Estates subdivision OTff
Palm Valley Road.
Each applicant has agreed that construction
will not take place during the nesting season,
which is Oct. 1 to May 15.
The nest, referred to as the "Plantation bald
eagle nest" on county documents, is one of 29
recorded nests in the county, Mauch said in a
telephone interview, adding,' "Some of them
are inactive."
A resident first notified the county about the
nest in June, but the nest wasn't confirmed

three chefs offering samples from their
restaurants 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday dur-
ing "A Taste of Palm Valley" at the Palm
Valley Community Center, 148 Canal
Blvd., off Roscoe Boulevard. Cakmis

Augustine talked about Palm .Valley's
Minorcan roots. See Kathy's Cooks col-
umn with Minorcan recipes, A-7.


Creators of Pelican Pete land at Center


Saxophonist Dave Koz
headlines this weekend's
Jacksonville Jazz Festival at
Metro Park. More information
and event schedule on B-1.


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

Pelican Pete didn't make it
to the Cultural Center at
Ponte Vedra Beach Monday,
but there were plenty of
reminders of the children's
book character, which has
been around for about 10
years.
There were some of the
Pelican Pete books on hand, as
well as the husband-and-wife
illustrator-and-writer team
from St. Augustine who are his
creators.
Hugh and Frances Keiser


were guest speakers for the Art
@ 3 event at the center, 50
Executive Way, Ponte Vedra
Beach.
They came to the center to
present Hugh Keiser's newest
work, "Pencils to Pixels: The
Art of Picture Books."
Among the audience's 31
members were two young-
sters, one of whom, Miakara
Belanger, hoped to take away
from the session "details of
how to do art, and secrets, and
stuff that'll help me."
Also in the audience was
Ponte Vedra Beach author and
illustrator Lois Simon, who


had a number of things she
hoped to learn.
"I'm always hoping I learn
something every day," said
Simon. "I guess I'm mostly
interested in the process they
went through.
"I joined the Florida Writers
Guild just to get information
from other writers," Simon
said," and found out it's not
book stores that sell your
books it's the author. I want
to find out how they do their
marketing, and possibly find
out a little bit about their pub-
lisher."
The Keisers' first book was


published in 1999. The
Pelican Pete series came from
where they live, on the beach
at St. Augustine.
"'Pelican Pete' became the
character in the books because
we live on the beach, and the
pelicans fly overhead," said
Frances Keiser. "We became
fascinated with pelicans, and
when we decided we were
going to do books, the natural
character was the pelican."
Hugh Keiser, a graduate of
Cooper Union, has been illus-
trating for 10 years but has
been painting and drawing
professionally for more than


40 years. Many of those were
spent as an architect with
Keiser Associates, a New York
top-10 design firm he found-
ed.
He said he moved from
architectural design into illus-
trating because "clients get to
you. I don't like working for
people.... I like to work for
myself."
The Keisers moved to
Florida from Long Island,
where they lived in a commu-
nity at the eastern end of the
island, 100 miles

Neighbor


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

One Ponte Vedra Beach
neighborhood is celebrating
Earth Day by recycling
unwanted goods rather than
throw them out.
"The idea is we want to recy-
cle our items without having
things that we no longer want
or need end up in landfills,"
said Patti Peeples Gustafson,
originator of the "Drop-N-
Swap" event being held
Sunday at Sawmill Lakes off
County Road 210.
Although the official date
for Earth Day is April 22,
Sawmill Lakes started getting
into the swing of things early
with a community-wide garage
sale Saturday.
Sawmill Lakes holds two
community garage sales a year
one in the spring, the other
in the fall.
Drop -N Swap, new this year,
will have neighbors swapping
items with each other, either
items that were left over from
the garage sale or other items
brought from home.
"I've been an environmental
activist most of my life,"
Gustafson said.
"Our hope is that we'll do
our own little individual part
for the environment."
Because the swap event is
untried, organizers decided to
limit it to Sawmill Lakes fami-
lies this year.
"We're keeping it within the
community this time because
we're not sure how it will go,"
she said.
Drop -N Swap will run, 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be
accompanied by a family fun
day at the Sawmill Lakes
Community .Center.
Earth Day began as a grass-
roots effort in 1969.
"It's successful," said
Gustafson, "because individu-
als take responsibility for their
own environmental awareness
and carbon footprint. We're
hoping to begin to spread that

perspective throughout
Sawmill Lakes."
Gustafson and her husband
Steve do only organic garden-
ing and, organic lawn control
at their home.
"We're avid recyclers," she
said, "and my children and I
participate in many activities
throughout the community,
trying to help educate about
the environment. And to help
communicate all the natural
resources we have around
here."'
Gustafson said that some
residents of Ponte Vedra
"maybe don't realize how
many wonderful things we
have, with the Guana,
Intracoastal and ocean. We're
really at sort of an apex, if you
will, of some beautiful envi-
ronmental offerings. I just
want to do what I can as a fam-


ily to maintain it."
Among those shopping at
the Sawmill Lakes garage sale
were Judy and Buddy Duvall,
who moved into Nocatee Dec.
20 after living in Melbourne,
Fla., 18 years. The couple also
lived in Washington, D.C.
Buddy Duvall, a retired cor-
rectional officer, works for
Marriott Sawgrass as an engi-
neer. He was wearing a
Washington Redskins cap and
New York Yankees shirt. He
spent time in the New York
area as a youngster.
With his wife looking for
things "nautical and nice,"
Duvall, a distant cousin of
actor Robert Duvall, said he
was seeking "some blue
trousers, 34 waist and 32
length. Because that's our uni-
form at Sawgrass."

Amanda (left) and Alexandra Morey offer some goods during
Saturday's community-wide garage sale at Sawmill Lakes,
where (above) Patti Peeples Gustafson (center) chats with
Nocatee residents Judy and Buddy Duvall. An environmental
activist most of her life, Gustafson has come up with the idea
for a Sawmill Lakes Drop -n Swap, which will be held Sunday
at the Ponte Vedra Beach complex's community center. Any
Sawmill Lakes resident dropping off an unwanted item is enti-
tled to take an item offered by someone else.


Sawmill Lakes social commit-
tee, said Sunday's event is "an
opportunity for people to real-
ly recycle. Instead of taking
what they maybe didn't sell in
the garage sale that's in good
working shape and throwing it
in a landfill, the concept is
bring it down [to the commu-
nity center], see if maybe
someone might find it useful."
Morey emphasized money
won't change hands at Drop -
N Swap.
"It's free. You bring some-
thing, then you see if there's
something you'd like to take.
The concept," she said, "is just
'let's try.' Let's try something
different, try something new
for recycling in this communi-
ty, instead of it going to a land-
fill. What we're trying to do is
do this within Sawmill Lakes
this first year, see what the
response is. Maybe we try it


again next year, maybe we
open it up to more communi-
ties.
"Other communities, think
about doing this," said Morey.
"Think about doing this with-
in your own neighborhood.
Who knows, maybe the idea
might take, and they might
want to do it somewhere with-
in a public area of Ponte Vedra
and make this really a fun day.
Morey's daughters,
Alexandra and Amanda, had
set up a small table in front of
their house that held books
and tea sets and from which
the first item sold was a snow
globe.
"It was New York City," said
9-year-old Amanda.
"Mommy and Daddy got it
[in New York]," said Laura
Morey. "It was pre-2001 sky-
line, World Trade Center in it.
It's a musical globe."

Waivers required in nest zones

> EAGLE, from A-1


until Nov. 1, when Mauch and
Jan Brewer, the county's envi-
ronmental manager, visited the
site and saw one adult and
"some nest-building activity,"
Mauch said.
"We were very surprised [to
see the eagle]," Mauch said.
They were expecting "maybe
an osprey or a red tail hawk."
Some Plantation residents
told them the nest has been
used the past three years,
although "this is the first we've
heard about it," he said.
When Mauch and Brewer
visited the site March 28 to
post notification for Tuesday's
hearing, they saw an eagle
fledgling "hanging out around
the tree," Mauch said.
"Mom and dad were still in
the area. We could hear them


calling," he said.
Although the eagles may
stay in the area or migrate
north after nesting season,
they may not be finished with
the nest tucked among the
branches about 80 feet off the
ground, Mauch said.
"Typically, the same pair
come out and use the nest over
and over again," he said.
The county restrictions
remain in place until a nest is
abandoned, he said. To become
abandoned, there must be veri-
fication of no activity for five
years, Mauch said.
Last month, county commis-
sioners OK'd a waiver for con-
struction of a swimming pool
at a home on Governors Road
and another for a pool and
landscaping for a home on


'Strong Branch Drive.
Both are in the primary
zone.
In January, commissioners
gave their approval for con-
struction of a home in the sec-
ondary zone. That home, as
well as the Governors Road
pool, were allowed to be built
during nesting season,
although monitoring of the
eagles was required.
The American bald eagle was
removed in June from the fed-
eral list of endangered species,
but it remains protected by fed-
eral and state law as well the
county's Land Development
Code.
Tuesday's meeting begins at
9 a.m. in the county auditori-
um, off U.S. 1 just north of the
St. Augustine city gates.

Path likely to go on Guana side

- PATH, from A-1


implications were, what the
drainage implications were
and the true cost of the proj-
ect."
He said it is generally con-
sidered the path would be on
the Guana side of 210, "but I
think we have to look at both
[sides]."
The stretch of 210 skirts the
Guana Tolomato Matanzas
National Estuarine Research
Reserve on the south and the
Sawmill Lakes subdivision on
the north.
Residents of Sawmill Lakes
have objected to four-laning
of that stretch of 210 since at
least 2001. There remains dis-
agreement among communi-
ty members on whether four
lanes are needed, and the
County Commission has
made no decision on the
issue.
Stephenson said the addi-
tion of the path most are
made of asphalt and are 12
feet wide, he said is not a
replacement for widening.
"Whether you widen the
road or not, we need to
improve" pedestrian and bicy-


cle safety on that stretch,
Stephenson said. "This accom-
plishes that."
Two community groups -
the Ponte Vedra Beaches
Coalition and the Ponte Vedra
Community Association
(PVCA) as well as one elect-
ed body the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD)- have weighed in on
the widening proposal in
recent months.
The PVCA in December,
sensing lack of support for the
widening by county commis-
sioners, asked for the MSD's
support in requesting the
county look at the issue.
PVCA directors expressed
concern that 210's two lane's
east of the bridge might be
inadequate to handle traffic
during a hurricane evacua-
tion.
At least one MSD trustee
followed up by saying con-
cern over the issue is justified,
even for those who don't live
next to the project area.
County Commissioner
Cyndi Stevenson has said the
road is not considered a choke


point for evacuation.
In July 2001, the year a 210
corridor study indicated traf-
fic projections pointed to the
need for four-laning of 210,
more than 100 Sawmill Lakes
residents squeezed into that
community's recreation cen-
ter to hear about the county's
plans.
Although the county had
no design plans, Stephenson,
then the county's transporta-
tion director, told the resi-
dents that changes would
have to be made to the road
within the next five years.
In order for any widening

Hugh Keiser's presenta-
tion of "Pencils to Pixels"
included "how we get
into a computer, how we
use the computer and
samples of the work," he
explained.
Frances Keiser talked
about her husband's jour-
ney from "pencils to pix-

after he gave the "means
and methods" for how he
works, with information
tips and resources for
artists who might be
interested in illustrating

what do they do, how do
they get into it, how do
they find writers and
what kind of software
they need.
"I've been writing all

said Frances Keiser, "but
not children's books.

Letters to the editor:



Glad to pay more


for power to make


sure it stays on


To the editor:
A recent piece by David
Smith advocates the sale of
Beaches Energy to JEA
because of administrative
time and disparity costs
between residential customers
and business. He also points
out a scenario of a financial
win/win resulting from such a
sale. It is my understanding
that the idea behind the
Beaches cities being separate
entities and having separate
utility was to maintain local
control. Local control does
mean time and effort.
I have lived at the Beaches
since 1984, in both
Jacksonville Beach and Ponte
Vedra, and have repeatedly
seen the benefits of having
our own local electric service.
Time and again, even under
extreme weather conditions,
the people of our local utility
have restored our power
much faster than occurred in
areas served by other
providers, including JEA.
For local control, and the
quality of service we get, we
pay a premium price. In my
opinion, it is well worth the


extra cost. If there is unfair-
ness in the pricing of service
to business compared to that
provided to residents, that is a
matter of policy to be dis-
cussed by elected officials.
This does not warrant the sale
of electric service.
If we need higher rates to
keep the quality we have and
to retain competent employ-
ees, so be it. I for one, would
be willing to bear my fair
share of the cost. I have lived
in places where we went with-
out power for several days at
a time. It would be foolish to
increase the risk of that hap-
pening here.
The sale looks economically
wise on paper, as Mr. Smith so
clearly points out in his piece.
However, many ideas look
great on paper but are bad
public policy in the long run.
To exchange reliability and
local control for money is a
bad trade in my book. In
short, the sale of Beaches
Energy would be an unwise
and shortsighted decision.

Beaches needs a comedy club for real laughs


To the editor:
I am not a stand-up comic
nor a doctor, but I do know
that laughter is the best
medicine for whatever ails
you!
Therefore, I have a sugges-
tion/idea to "cure" the fol-
lowing "ailment." How
about building a smaller the-
ater where the "eyesores"
still stand. That would be
the defunct convenience
store and florist shop on the


corner of Atlantic
Boulevard, right, in front of
the defunct Atlantic Theater.
It seems as though every-
thing is being moved out of
here or closing at the
Beaches.
After all the bickering and
controversy about the Super
Wal-Mart coming to town
(not to mention all the
money wasted), I'm sur-
prised that no one, to my
knowledge, has mentioned


building a new co
ater where the
tioned locations
so unsightly.
So, I'm record
this idea be brou
one of the Towr
meetings soon.
After all, so0
laughs are need
about now!

Mayport Road turnoffs need to be reassessed


To the editor:
Well, now, that we can
really see all the less turn
spots there will 'be on
Mayport Road, we really tend
to wonder, did or rather do
all those people who voted
for it, the few, will they be
using the road everyday and
looking forward to the
upcoming chaos?
Now, change.. was that
really what Mayport Road
needed or just more police
protection. I'll be one of the
first ones to agree, that when
you clean up an area, crime
always seems to go away or
somewhere else, but really
couldn't that money be bet-
ter spent on young kids,
teenager entertainment,
parks or other roads that
need.repair? ....-.- *


So, now the famous
(Mayport 500) will now
become the famous (u-turn)
capital of the beaches area? If
there's a wreck on Mayport
Road, there's no medium to
turn into, .so, just block up
traffic, if an emergency vehi-
cle needs to get by during
morning or evening traffic (
we'll discuss traffic a little
later) again there's no medi-
um to pull over in an don't
forget about good ole' hurri-
cane season, probably won't
need any extra lanes for an
evacuation..huh? Yes. I seen
the little hoses crossing the
road to get an idea of traffic,
but, to get a real feel, try it
about 5 to 7 p.m. and go
down Mayport Road toward
the Navy Base and turn off to
A1A, someone thought there

7 P people are always talking
About the evolution of
SJacksonville -Beach and
how just 10 years ago merchants
and visitors had to be enticed
just to come to the area.
No one ever mentions what
to do with us now that an
inflated cost of living and a flat
S line economy have left some of
us anchored to bad investments
or failing mortgages.
A decade ago, I was just one in
the crowd of 20-somethings
content with slinging pizza and
pouring beer just to live at the
beach. I didn't care about blight
or redevelopment as long as I
could walk across the street
from my apartment and do a
s face plant in the sand.
ders Working until 3 a.m. rolling
silverware, filling condiments
and coming home smelling like
grease afforded the opportunity
for oceanfront living at the bar-

month for a decent one-bed-
room.
Sure, there were seedy pockets
of the city that you didn't travel
at night and others that you
steered cear of even in the light
of day. But air hockey at the old
6th Avenue South pier after a
breakfast with the seagulls made
it all worthwhile.
Slowly things like the bumper
cars and the boardwalk game
room disappeared, replacing the
blighted images with more
desirable fare' like restatirints,
shops and condominiums. '
Painting a big sunny smiley
face on the city also destroyed
the quaint notion of beach liv-
ing and affordable rentals gave
way for expensive coastal
dwellings.
Worn paneling and sandy
tiles were replaced by granite
countertops and brushed nickel
fixtures. The 20-somethings
grew into 30-somethings but
even the "grown up" world
struggled to keep up with the
changing face of the communi-
ty. Restaurants aprons were trad-
ed in for business casual. Rent
turned to mortgages. Dating
Saved the way for marriage and
later parenthood.
Bar tabs became daycare bills.
SBirthday parties were glorified
social outings with bouncy cas-
tles.
Then the bottom fell out.
Mortgage rates soared skyward
and the economy plummeted.
Stretched mortgages eventually
snapped. So did some marriages

became a grim reality for those
who invested everything -

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader

Retired Corps member David Streans of Ponte Vedra Beach speaks with winter recruits before a recent training day at the
Jacksonville Beach lifeguard station.


Recruits test their mettle in water skills


"Water is where you have
been called to serve, and water
is where you will be tested."
From "The Guardian."

by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Swimming is a fundamental
skill of lifeguarding.
So for the better part of
three hours on Sunday, six
recruits with the American
Red Cross Volunteer Life
Saving Corps tested their
water skills in a variety of
ways at the University of
North Florida Aquatic
Center.
They swam laps, practiced
rescuing a submerged victim
in the deep end and took
turns pushing a 5-pound rub-
ber brick under water, simu-
lating a scene from "The
Guardian," a 2007 film about
U.S. Coast Guard rescue -*
swimmers. -
'"I love that movie," 18-
year-old recruit Monica
Ruggiero said before taking
part in the oxygen deprava-
tion exercise, where recruits
paired up to push bricks
along the pool floor.
Only one recruit at a time
could surface to catch his or
her breath. If both surfaced,
both failed.
"The reward for winning
this drill is a special mention
at Tuesday's meeting," lead
instructor Rick Foster told
the remaining members of
the Corps' 2008 winter
recruit class, which began
with 35 souls, but has been
whittled down to six.
Along with Ruggiero, a
waitress at Bukkets in
Jacksonville Beach, the class
includes 2007 Fletcher High
grad Eric Bohn, an aspiring
firefighter, and four high
school students, Kaity Morris
of Providence, Catherine
Woodcock of Nease, Walley
Meskel of Stanton Prep and
Anthony Delossantos of
Paxon School for Advanced
Studies.
Sunday marked the ninth
week of recruit training and
the first of several pool tests
before graduation day on
April 27.
They opened the day
swimming 50-yard intervals
on 50 seconds, followed by


100-yarders on two minutes
with a 20-second rest.
Morris, a former water polo
player from South Africa,
swan the 100's in under 80
seconds.
"Now we're going to swim
20 more 50's on 50 seconds,"
said Foster from the pool
deck, "but for every question
you answer correctly, I'll
knock off a 50."
"Morris. Which flag flies
on the northside of the
peg?" Foster asked.
"The American flag, sir,"
Morris answered.
"Good. Now you owe me
18."
At one point, Foster added
another 50 because a recruit
was late hitting the wall.
"That was 51 seconds. That
one doesn't count," said
Foster, a 12-year veteran of
the Corps..
"'Morris. What is the defi-
nition of drowning?"
After the Q&A laps, the
recruits were ordered to swim
200 yards in under four min-
utes. All six clocked in
around three minutes, led by
Morris at 2:34.
Next up, the recruits prac-
ticed mock rescues in the
deep end with Foster and
veteran Corps members
Allison Justice and Rob
Emahiser serving as victims.
Justice, a flight medic with
the Florida Army National
Guard, and Emahiser, a for-
mer Navy search and rescue
swimmer, were not there to
provide moral support.
There job was to be as
combative as possible.
"The object in this pool
test is to get the victim to
the side," Foster told the
recruits lined up on the pool
deck with orange torpedo
buoys in hand.
"On active/unassisted res-
cues, the victim will try to
take the buoy and wear you
out."
Emahiser, who spent two
years as a SAR swimmer on a
Navy cruiser, was such a dif-
ficult victim that at one
point a male recruit had to
abort his rescue.
"Everything you do should
be nice and relaxed," assis-
tant instructor Demian Lewis
told the recruits, "because if
you panic, the victim will


panic."
Recruits are schooled in
dry-land techniques to brake
the frantic grips of panicked
victims, along with special
holds.
They also utilize their
ubiquitous buoys to tow vic-
tims to shore.
"Nice grip, Santos," Foster
tells a recruit, who exits the
pool with his chest heaving
from the arduous exercise.
"Let's talk about Code X."
In a drill designed to
search and rescue a sub-
merged victim, recruits first
cross their wrists in an X pat-
tern to signal the emergency
status.
Then with their eyes closed
simulating ocean conditions,
they scan the bottom of
UNF's 12-foot-deep pool with
their hands.
"1, 2, 3, sweep," says
Ruggiero as she and her
cohorts dive down to locate
a black rubber brick.
Later, the recruits tread
water in the deep end hold-
ing the brick over their
heads for 60-second inter-
vals.
"That's a lot harder than it
looks," Ruggiero, the daugh-
ter of a former Olympic-cal-
iber swimmer, exclaims.
After pushing bricks under
water, the recruits practiced
compact jumps from the
high dive, simulating a water
entry from a helicopter or
the end of the Jacksonville
Beach pier.
"Make yourself into a
chair," Foster said.
The recruits finished the
first half of their training day
performing a basic lifesaving
skill: one-arm carries.
Justice, a 23-year-old Army
sergeant who served as a
flight medic with the 111th
Aviation Regiment last year
in Iraq and Afghanistan,
underscored the importance
of periodic pool testing.
"We do these drills to save
your life, a victim's life and
to earn the respect of the
public," said Justice, who
was honored for her military
service by Gov. Charlie Crist,
during the March 8 State of
the State Address at the
Florida Capitol.
Emahiser, who joined the
Corps as a recruit in the

Artists focus on their painting techniques


by CHUCK ADAMS
STAFF WRITER

Five local artists shared different
painting techniques Wednesday
with an attentive audience of some
30 people at the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library.
"What we're trying to demon-
strate are just some simple tech-
niques that beginning painters can
use and be successful so they create
something they feel good about in
the beginning," said Bob Bunt, one
of the participating artists who also
is education chairman of FOCUS
Cummer.
"Later; obviously, they have to
study and gain proficiency."
* The session was an Adventures
in Arts Series offering, presented by
FOCUS Cummer and Friends of the
Library.
The other artists were Karyn
Boyd, Bob Nickerson, Gordon
Russell and Bruce Ann Ferguson.
Bunt said the session was the lat-
est in a once-a-month series that
has been running four to five years
and at which different types of art
are presented.
The events, held October to May
at the library, are free and open to


the public.
He said the offerings have
included poetry, music, artists
"and even some tours that we con-
duct in conjunction with it."
FOCUS Cummer members are
taking a guided bus trip to
Philadelphia April 29 to May 2.
Russell, a native of Canada and
resident of Ponte Vedra Beach,
shared his techniques in acrylics,
in which he started working in
1998.
"You can use a brush; fingers
with fingerpainting, using a late
glove; cardboard, a palette knife
and a heavier type of acrylic that
you have to mix up with that,"
said Russell. "There's a variety of
things you can use to produce a
very attractive painting."
Russell has been painting for 10
years, since he retired. He was in
construction engineering for an
international company.
Russell is a member of the St.
Augustine Art Association, Cultural
Center at Ponte Vedra Beach,
Cummer- Museum and Neptune
Art Group and is on the board of
the Jacksonville Coalition for the
Visual Arts.

Seafood staple ofMenorcan cooking


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST
One of the most unique cook-
books published in northeast
Florida is "Menorcan Family
Favorites."
The cookbook is about 10
years old and includes recipes
collected by the Menorcan
Cultural Society in St.
Augustine.
The Menorcans (sometimes
spelled Minorcans) are the
descendants of early Florida
colonists who primarily came
from the island of Menorca off
the coast of Spain but also came
from Greece, Italy, France, and
Corsica. They arrived in Florida
in 1768.
After working as contract
laborers under harsh conditions
at an indigo plantation in New
Smyrna, in 1777 the Menorcans
were given permission to leave
the plantation.
They traveled on foot to St.
Augustine where they and their
families settled and many of
their descendants still live, said
Carol Lopez Bradshaw, a descen-
dant of the Menorcans and
President of the Menorcan
Cultural Society.
Lopez Bradshaw grew up in St.
Augustine and lives there in a
house built by her great grand-
parents in 1878.
The history of the Menorcans
is the American story of people
leaving their home country to
build a better life in what was to
become the United States.
The descendants of the origi-
nal Menorcans number around
15,000 in the St. Augustine area,
she said.
In the 1980s the Menorcan
Cultural Society was formed to
preserve the history and culture
of the Menorcans.
"Menorcan Family Favorites"
contains recipes brought by the
Menorcans from their European
home and recipes that made use
of what was available or could
be grown in northeast Florida.
Many of these recipes were
part of "every day life" for the
Menorcans, some had never
been written down before and
had been passed down through
the families, said Lopez
Bradshw.
Seafood was an important
part of the diet of the Menorcan
families. Local fish and other
seafood was plentiful in St.
Augustine as it probably had
been on the island of Menorca,
she said.
Mullet, considered by some as
"trash fish," was prized by the
Menorcan families.
When they heard the call of
"mullet on the beach," Lopez
Bradshaw's parents and siblings
(and other Menorcan families)


spent many June evenings on
the beach catching the fish.
After the fish were cleaned,
the women fried them over
open fires and served them with
grits, she said.
The Menorcans are also well
known for the use of datil pep-
pers in their cooking. No one
knows with certainty the origin
of the datil pepper, said Lopez
Bradshaw. Some claim that the
Menorcans brought it with
them to Florida or that the pep-
per is a hybrid of other types of
peppers which the Menorcans
grew after arriving in Florida.
What is generally accepted is
that it has a unique hot and fla-
vorful taste and it "grows best in
St. Augustine."
Sauces, jellies, and relishes
made with Datil peppers accom-
pany seafood and other dishes.
Whole datil peppers are also
ingredients in many Menorcan
dishes such as Shrimp Pilou or
Clam Chowder.
Tomato-based Menorcan
Clam Chowder is frequently
found on the menu at local
restaurants, said Lopez
Bradshaw. Pilau is main course
with rice that is often made with
shrimp but can also be made
with chicken or pork.
Fromajadas are cheese pastries
made the night before Easter
Sunday. The Menorcans brought
this tradition with them from
Menorca and some of their
descendants continue to prepare
them today.
On Menorca, the young men
would travel from house to
house on the night before
Easter, singing for the residents
in the hope of receiving some of
the Fromajadas, said Lopez
Bradshaw.
"All ingredients could be
found in the back yard" for
Rosa's Menorcan Yams, accord-
ing to "Menorcan Family
Favorites."
Lopez Bradshaw recalls look-
ing forward to enjoying
Menorcan Christmas Candy as a
child. This special coconut treat
was made by her great aunt only
once a year for the holidays.
The following recipes are
recipes for Menorcan dishes; all
except for Minorcan Christmas
Candy are from "Menorcan
Family Favorites." For more
information about the
Menorcans or about the cook-
book, visit www.menorcansoci-


ety.net.

Fromajadas
(Kay David from a recipe from
Josephine and Ethel Pellicer)

Crust:
6 cups of all purpose flour
6 tsp. baking powder
1 lb. Crisco

Sift all dry ingredients togeth-
er and cut in the Crisco. Add
approximately three-quarters
cup of ice water and mix until
dough forms into a ball.

Filling:
6 large eggs
4 heaping tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 lb. grated cheese
1 T sugar
Add approximately a quarter
cup of flour to thicken.
Roll a ping pong size ball of
dough into a circle. Put about
one tablespoon of the filling in
the middle, fold the dough and
pinch the edges. Cut a cross on
top and bake on a cookie sheet
on the middle rack of the oven
at 400 degrees for about 12 min-
utes or until golden brown.

bacon, onions, celery, tomatoes,
cut up datil pepper (1), salt, pep-
per, and garlic. Cook until toma-

Use directions on box of rice.
Use water from boiled shrimp
instead of plain water. Add
shrimp and tomato mixture to
rice and cook according to rice
directions, put whole datil pep-
pers in now and salt and pepper
to taste. May have to cook
longer than directions on box
because of water in shrimp.
Simmer until all liquid is

(The family of V.J. Usina, Jr.)


7 laxgecan tomatoes ..r::
1 Ib. salt bacon, cut into cubes,*

to sauce and cook down until
thick. Water may be added. Add
potatoes, clams, and spices, and
cook over low heat. Keep tasting
until you think it is just right.
Then add the datil peppers to
taste and let cook some more.
Cooked salt bacon may be put
back into pot if you like it more
salty. Be careful it doesn't scorch
or bum.

Rosa's Menorcan Yams
(Sally Reyes Walton from a
recipe'"from Grandmother Rosa
Leonardi's kitchen.")

6 fresh large sweet potatoes or
2 large cans sweet potatoes, cut
into pieces
one-quarter cup fresh oranges

to blend well, then add syrup.
Cook over low heat, stirring
constantly until mixture
becomes thick and heavy.
Drop in small spoonfuls onto
waxed paper or buttered cookie
sheet and allow to harden.
(If prepared coconut is used,
soak a quarter cup of coconut in
warm milk for 1 hour; then
strain to get coconut milk.)
Candy improves with age if

Sharapova

brings star

power to

Amelia

Island

he's like Anna Koumi-
kova, you know, except
she wins."
That's how one fan at this
week's Bausch & Lomb tennis
championships at Amelia
Island Plantation described
Maria Sharapova to a friend as.
both awaited the Russian's first
match Tuesday night.
There was a palpable buzz of
excitement throughout the
Stadium Court as the statuesqe
Sharapova made her way past
the crowd and onto the play-
ing surface a few minutes after
7 p.m.
Employing crackling base-
line groundstrokes, the world's
No. 5 ranked player dis-
patched Barbora Zahlavova
Strycova in straight sets, 6-1,
6-3 to advance.
Yes, there are other top stars
in this year's field, including
three-time winner Lindsay
Davenport as well as previous
champion Amelie Mauresmo.
Yet it is Sharapova who gen-
erates the electricity. Make no
mistake about it, she's the top
-saw-in-this year's tournament
iand i-wuld be even if Venus
Williams hadn't withdrawn
due to an unspecified injury.
It is Sharapova's star that
bums most brightly in
women's tennis.
Part of it is her looks, of
course. The tall, blonde, green-
eyed Sharapova tops most
"Sexiest Female Athlete" lists,
but unlike with Koumikova,
there is substance behind the
style. Sharapova has won three
Grand Slam titles to date.
By way of background,
Sharapova was born in the
middle of Siberia, a small town
called Nyagan. By the age of
seven Maria's tennis prowess
was discovered and her father,
Yuri, brought the young prodi-
gy to Nick Bollettieri's Tennis
Academy in Bradenton, Fla.
At 11 years old, she signed
with IMG, one of the largest
management companies in the
country representing the likes
of Michael Jordon, Jeff Gordon,
Tiger Woods and Gisele
Bundchen among others.
Sharapova's breakthrough
win came at Wimbledon in
2004 when she defeated heavi-
ly-favored, two-time defending
champion Serena Williams in
the final.
Since then she has captured
the 2006 U.S. Open title and
this year's Australian Open
crown, defeating Justine
Henin in both finals.
But with Sharapova, tennis
is only half the story. A recent
Forbes magazine article lists
the 6-foot-2 blonde as the
world's highest-paid female
celebrity, earning more than
$25 million annually in
endorsements. Companies
such as Nike, Canon,
Gatorade, Colgate-Palmolive,
Tropicana, Land Rover and
watchmaker Tag Heuer line up
to throw millions her way.
Sharapova, who will turn 21
on April 19, has become what
many in the tennis world
hoped Kournikova would be:
A spokesmodel for the game
who also happens to win
Grand Slam titles.
What brought Sharapova to
north Florida for her Amelia
Island debut was an injured
right shoulder that kept her
out of last week's Sony
Ericsson Open in Miami.
South Florida's loss is our
gain and local sports fans
should rejoice. Play at the
Bausch & Lomb champi-
onships is always top-notch,
but this year offers a rare
opportunity to see the most
famous female athlete on the
planet in action.


FROM STAFF
The Nease High boys
lacrosse team climbed one
step closer to the state's final
four with a victory over
District 1 champion Maclay
High in Tallahassee Monday
night.
With their 15-5 win, Nease
advanced to tonight's state
quarterfinal against Bolles.
The Panthers defeated the
District 2 champion Bulldogs,
10-0, on March 13.
Against Maclay, Panthers
attacker Brett Angerer led the
way with five goals and a pair
of assists. Craig Carson scored
twice and had three assists,
while Michael Power netted
three goals to go along with
one assist.
It was the Nease defense
that once again rose to the
occasion against a potent
Marauders squad that fea-
tured 100-point scorer Chase
Smith. Maclay managed only
14 shots in the game.
Nease (15-4) led 6-1 at half-
time.

SOFTBALL
Nease 7, St. Augustine 1
What was supposed to be a
home game for the Panthers,
Senor Night in fact, took
place instead at Bartram Trail
because of a flooded field at
Nease.
Panthers starter Ashley
Ceithaml fired a one-hitter
and struck out eight Yellow
Jackets as Nease improved to
1-2 this season against its
cross-county rival.
With the victory, Ceithaml
improved to 8-7 on the year.
Offensively, Nease was led
by Clare Wamsley, who belt-
ed a two-run home run to
center. Morgan Graley went
3-for-4 while Kristen Mantia
also had three hits in the
contest.

Ospreys raise their RPI against Gators


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR

The University of North Florida's
Division I baseball team dropped a pair
of close games to nationally ranked
Florida this week, but the Ospreys aren't
crying in their beer.
UNF (18-15) outhit the No. 21 Gators,
(23-10) in back-to-back losses Tuesiy
and Wednesday at McKethan Staditin,
losing 5-3 and 3-2.
The Ospreys, who knocked off the
Gators 11-10 in Gainesville on April 1,
are now 3-2 all-time against UF.
After Wednesday's one-run win,*
Gators head coach Kevin O'Sullivan said
UNF's lineup, which is batting a cAdi-
bined .318, is formidable at the plate.
"They're pesky hitters who are tough
to strike out," said O'Sullivan, a former
catcher at Florida Community College
at Jacksonville now in his first season at
UF.
"You have to get ahead on them. ...
These are two tough wins for us."
UNF booked 13 hits against the Gators
on Tuesday and nine on Wednesday, but
left 10 men on base in the 5-3 setback.
On Tuesday, senior first baseman
Andy Warren, a 2003 Nease High gradu-
ate, hit a two-run homer in the top of
the second inning to pace North Florida
to an early 2-0 lead.
It was Warren's second dinger of the
season and only UNF's 17th of the year.
"We're not home run guys. We have
to be contact hitters," said UNF skipper
Dusty Rhodes, now in his 21st season.
"Our offense has been good all season,


"- -

Nease High grad Andy Warren has not made an error at first base in 30 games.


but our pitching has struggled a bit."
Seven UNF starters are batting .300 or
better, led by sophomore Andrew
Hannon (.386, 31 RBI) and senior short-
stop Chad Knight (.385). Senior desig-
nated hitter Travis Martin (.371, 31 RBI,
5 HR) has a .603 slugging percentage.
But UNF's team ERA (5.66) has been a
liability of late.
Against the Gators, Rhodes started a
pair of right-handers coming off injuries
in redshirt freshman George Lott and
junior John Frawley.
It was only Lott's second start of the
season after coming off Tommy John
surgery.
The Ospreys lost their bid to tie


Wednesday's game at 3-all in the eighth,
when Florida right fielder Jonathan
Pigott gunned down sophomore Preston
Hale at the plate for the third out.
UNF is 4-3 this season versus
Southeastern Conference opponents
and 4-3 against ranked teams, factors
that figure into a team's Rating
Percentage Index, or mathematical
measurement of strength of schedule.
"Our non-conference schedule was
ranked 28th in the country coming into
the season," said Rhodes, whose team is
making the transition from Division II
and is not eligible for postseason play
until 2010.
"We don't get a postseason shot, but


these games raise our RPI and the RPI of
our conference."
UNF is currently 9-9 overall in the 12-
team Atlantic Sun Conference. The top
six teams in the league qualify for the
post-season tournament, with the win-
ner earning an automatic bid to the
NCAA regionals.
UNF is not eligible for tourney play
until 2010, so upcoming road games
with nationally ranked Florida State
(April 16), North Carolina (May 6-7) and
Miami (May 13) will be a good measure
of its regional clout.
"That's the whole idea," said Rhodes,
who led the Ospreys to World Series
berths at the NAIA and Division II levels.
"In all honesty, we're not supposed to
win these games."

Local Notes: Nease grad Andy
Warren went 3-for-8 against the Gators
and is batting .341 with 22 RBI. A con-
verted third baseman, Warren has not
made an error at first base in 30 games
this season and has a team-leading 184
putouts. Freshman Sam Perry, a 2007
Fletcher High grad, started at second
base Tuesday and at third Wednesday
versus the Gators. Perry, who went 1-
for-3 against Florida Wednesday, has
raised his batting average 40 points in
the post week. He has appeared in 23
games this season and is bidding to
become a full-time starter. "He can play
all three infield positions, and man, can
he run," said Rhodes. "He'll be a starter
next season, but I'm thinking about
playing him in the outfield some this
year."

Celebrating our 10th year in Jacksonville Beach, we're
committed to teaching kids more than just riding waves. Our
goal is to give our students the skills to take care of themselves
in the ocean. We've taught hundreds of boys and girls, with a
perfect safety record, how to avoid potential hazards such as rip
currents and collisions. We accomplish this with an uncrowded,
well-staffed, teaching environment.
One CPR certified instructor for every four student ratio.
A twenty student limit per session ensures individualized attention.
Every session is taught by John Tully, a lifelong Beaches resident
with 40 years of worldwide. surfing experience.

88-year-old New Friendship has new facility


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
After three years of worshiping
at Mayport Elementary School,
New Friendship Missionary
Baptist Church opened a new
church facility at 1996 Mayport
Road in October of 2007.
The new building is home to
an Atlantic Beach church with a
history that dates back to 1920,
according to a press release from
the church.
In the 88 years since its found-
ing, the church has been located
in four buildings in Atlantic
Beach.
Originally named Friendship
Baptist Church, the church's first
place of worship was a tin build-
ing on Park Street.
In 1929, the church moved to
Church Road and in 1946 again
moved to a newly built concrete
block structure on Dudley Street
Through years of growth as a
congregation and in service to
the community, New Friendship
Missionary Baptist Church
focused on "teachings of con-
forming to the image of Christ."
The church offers the Steven's
Ministry Program and. has sent
mission teams to the Bahamas
since 2000, said Phillip Johnson,
Music Minister at the church..
Helping Hands Ministry in
Atlantic Beach was begun as an
outreach ministry 'of New
Friendship Baptist Church in
1995," according to the agency's


photo ubmitted
The congregation of New Friendship Missionary Baptist Church
meets in their new church building at 1996 Mayport Road in Atlantic
Beach for Sunday worship service at 10:15 a.m. Rev. Marvin Nash is
the pastor.

"The mission, of Helping Hands
Ministries is to be the link
between adversity and prosperity
and to help bring families' in
need back to a state of self- suffi-
ciency."
With their trust "totally in
God," New Friendship
Missionary Baptist Church's
Leadership Team embarked on


their building project after
deciding it was necessary to
demolish the previous church
facility.
After going through this
"period in the wilderness," New
Friendship Missionary Baptist
Church is "growing weekly," said
Johnson.
