Interests

on A1A

EDITOR
Signs proposed for the
Veranda buildings in Ponte
Vedra Beach are coming up for
public scrutiny once again next
week when the St. Johns
County Commission considers
a unified sign plan.
Commissioners will consider
a major modification to the
Players Club Planned .Unit
Development (PUD) Tuesday at
their meeting that begins at 9
a.m. in the county auditorium
north of St. Augustine.
The proposal would allow
the complex of six commercial
buildings, on the west side of
State Road A1A just south of
PGA Tour Boulevard, to have
more wall signs than are
allowed by the Ponte Vedra
Overlay District ordinance,
which concerns some members
of the public.
At the commission's April 15
meeting, when the sign plan
was removed from the agenda,
a member of the- committee
that oversees the overlap dis-
trict rules urged commissioners
to deny the plan.
"My feeling was and is that
signage on those sides of the
building would be unnecessary
and unattractive," said Alison
McCallum, a member of the
Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) for the Ponte
Vedra overlay ordinance.

Six teens charged in random attacks


Sby LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A series of random attacks
throughout the Beaches last week-
end left three people battered and
six juveniles each facing felony
charges.
Jacksonville Beach police attrib-
uted the crimes to a group of juve-
niles who appeared to randomly
select their victims throughout
Jacksonville Beach and into
Neptune Beach.


On April 19 and 20, police said,
a group of juveniles committed a
series of at least three burglaries
and three strong arm robberies. In
separate incidents, victims were
attacked by three to six juvenile
boys, police said.
In Neptune Beach, a strong arm
robbery was reported Sunday at
4:12 p.m. in the .1700 block of
Florida Boulevard. A 13-year-old
boy was riding his bike north
when a group of seven to eight


boys between the ages of 14 and
16, also riding bikes, approached
him from behind, according to the
report.
Police said suspects pushed the
victim off his bike, causing him to
fall down an embankment and
into a ditch. The.suspects took the
victim's bike and fled, police said.
Two strong armed robberies were
also reported Sunday in
Jacksonville Beach. Four to five
male suspects attacked two teens


riding bikes at 12:20 a.m. in the
1300 block of 11th Avenue North.
The victims were pushed from
their bikes and beaten and a cell
phone was also stolen, police said.
Shortly before that incident, a
man was accosted by three teens as
he arrived home about 10 p.m.
Saturday in the 200 block of 2nd
Avenue South. The suspects beat
the man in the torso and face and

A new program of the St. Johns County
Sheriffs Office aims at more contact between

will get to St. Johns Counfy Sheriff's
know each Lt. B.. Tanner
other, said Sgt.
C h u c k
Mulligan, spokesman for the Sheriffs Office.
The plan is for shift commanders to attend
meetings of community groups while they're
on duty, as long as they're not tied up with a
call, Mulligan said.
"It goes along the guidelines ... of commu-
nity-oriented policing," Mulligan said.
"They're just shifting ... some of the respon-
sibility to the sergeants, and then the lieu-
tenants can focus more on the community."
The Ponte Vedra Community Association
(PVCA) was an early participant in the pro-
gram. At the PVCA's monthly meeting Monday
at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, the
gathering was paid a visit by Sheriffs Lt. B.H.
Tanner.
Arriving about half an hour after the start of
the 5 p.m. meeting, Tanner apologized for
being late, saying he found out about the meet-
ing only 30 minutes before, when he was in St.
Augustine.
"They want us to get more involved in the
community .. so we can serve y'all better,"
Tanner told the gathering of about one dozen,
including PVCA board members and visitors.
By attending meetings of community groups
and homeowner associations, Mulligan said,
the district commanders will find out what
concerns the residents have, what crime trends
there may be and what the residents think
about the job the department is doing.
The commanders will then "get back to the
sergeants and say, 'Hey, we need to focus orn

ff -Christ Church, BEAM and Baptist


Plan clinic for the 'working poor'


by KATHLEEN BAILEY
BEACHES LEADER EDITOR
A medical clinic will open at the
Beaches soon to provide medical care
to locals who are uninsured or under-
insured.
A consortium of organizations,
including Baptist Medical Center
Beaches, Christ Episcopal Church,
Beaches Emergency Assistance
Ministry (BEAM) and others, are
working together to get the clinic
open to serve those at the Beaches
who might otherwise not seek med-
ical care unless facing a full-blown cri-
sis that lands them in the emergency
room.
Organizers said an opening date
has not been set, but they agreed
plans are moving forward.
"Look for a healthcare clinic soon


to serve the working poor and home-
less," said Thomas Mantz, rector's
associate at Christ Episcopal Church,
Ponte Vedra Beach. "We're working
on some grants."
Mark Slyter, administrator for
Baptist Medical Center Beaches, said
this week that the hospital is putting
together plans to make "a significant
financial contribution to this effort."
He explained that the clinic will be
an expansion of the medical services
provided at Mission House twice a
week. The new clinic will be in addi-
tion to the Mission House program,
and the new clinic will operate five to
six days a week, he said.
"A group of individuals are trying
to extend services to children and
adults who are underserved in our
community," Slyter said.
Currently, Baptist Beaches spends


$10 million annually on "uncompen-
sated care" to serve the residents of
the Beaches, Slyter said, adding the
numbers are rising. He explained that
much of that expenditure is to pro-
vide emergency room services to
those who need urgent care.
"When they come to see us it's an
emergency and urgent. If they could
have gotten into a doctor's office that
might not be the case," Slyter said,
explaining that delays in securing
care can create urgent and critical
care needs.
Others involved in the effort to
provide routine medical care to the
underserved include the Sulzbacher
Center and Mission House.
In addition to the capital expenses
associated with opening such a clinic,
Slyter said operating expenses are also

sBeaches shuttle to run to Irish fest


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Keith Doherty is familiar with
the "locals only" mentality. As
the general manager of an Irish
Pub in Jacksonville Beach, he
serves his share of regulars who
consider Lynch's at 514 1st
Street North a second home.
Doherty is aware of the sense
of community at the Beaches
that fosters the "we don't cross
the ditch" mentality but as an
Irishman in a city so spread out
he is also keenly conscious that
there is little opportunity to cel-
ebrate his culture.
The 2nd annual Jax Irish Fest
will be held from 6 p.m. to mid-
night today and 11 a.m. to 11
p.m. Saturday at the
Jacksonville Fairgrounds.
Tickets are $15 in advance and
$20 at the gate.
To help encourage local citi-
.zens to make the commute
downtown, the Beaches .Flyer
will offer shuttle service from
the rear of the pub and will
bring riders directly to the inte-
rior of the Fairgrounds.
The Beaches Flyer will oper-
ate from 5, p.m. to 11 p.m.
today and will run from 10 a.m.
to 11 p.m. Saturday. Cost is $5
each way.
"We want Beaches residents,


to take advantage of this,"
Doherty said. "We want people
to be able to get down there and
enjoy themselves and not have
to worry about parking."
For Doherty, producing the
event helps break down the
stereotypical "corned beef and
cabbage and Lucky 4Charms"
image of most Irish festivals and
recognize the richness of the
culture in a variety of mediums
from dance to poetry.
"It's not just about the
music," he said. "Our event
shows the vibrancy of the Irish
American culture in a way that
transcends age, gender and
nationality. There is definitely a
market out there that is inter-
ested in Irish heritage on the
First Coast."
The festival will offer three
stages featuring dancers, story-
tellers poets, and comedians on
the cultural stage, traditional
Irish folk artists playing more
acoustic music on the regional
stage and the headlining per-
formers including The Tossers
Saturday on the main stage.
Seven Nations will perform a
fusion of Celtic rock and classi-
cal music today with the
Gainesville Symphony
Orchestra.
Other bands on Saturday's
i


schedule include local Celtic
rockers Rathkeltair, Black 47 -
a blend of Irish, reggae, rock
and funk, according to Doherty
- An Triur, the Young
Dubliners and the Screaming
Orphans who also perform as
Sinead O'Conner's backing
band.
"As the day goes on the
tempo increases in the music,"
Doherty said.
The festival also offers a
venue for people of Irish
descent to gather and enjoy a
sense of community.
"It allows Irish people to get
together and network and
have a good time," Doherty
said. "Maybe in like 30 years
will be able to get U2."
Visit www.jaxirishfest.com
for ticket information and a
full performance schedule.


Teams from the St. Johns
County Fire Services and the
St. Johns County Sheriff's
Office will compete in softball,
flag football and volleyball.
Numerous family activities
are planned. Chicken dinners,
hamburgers, hot dogs and
other food will be available.
Bring a chair or blanket.

Courts for St. Johns County,
will speak Monday at the 10

Free shuttles on 3rd to start in late June


FROM STAFF
In two months, four, 25-pas-
senger trolleys will offer free
rides between south
Jacksonville Beach and Atlantic
Boulevard.
Jacksonville City Councilor
Art Graham said this week that
the JTA has agreed to pay for
the trolley to run for 10 weeks,
beginning the last weekend of


June. Costs to operate the trol-
ley this summer will total
$100,000 and Graham said JTA
will help cover the costs.
With four trolleys making
the same loop, passengers will
not have to wait longer than 15
minutes to catch a ride,
Graham said.
As planned, trolleys will trav-
el from Sandcastle Plaza (loca-


tion of Home Depot), go north
on 3rd Street to Beach
Boulevard, head east to First
Street, north on First, and west
on 16th Avenue North to 3rd
Street.
Continuing north on 3rd
Street, the trolleys will go to
Atlantic Boulevard, where they
will turn around in a parking
lot west of Atlantic Boulevard


before heading back to
Sandcastle Plaza.
The trolleys will pick up and
discharge passengers along the
route, usually at designated bus
stops, Graham said.
Trolleys will run Fridays from
6 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturdays
from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., and
Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7
p.m., as well as July 4.


Significant 'feather in cap' of community

being anticipated so that the
clinic will be able to rely on
more than just volunteer
resources. Currently, medical
staff from the hospital often
volunteer at the twice-a-week
clinic held in Mission House.
"We have very proactive
leadership in the Beaches
community," Slyter said,
identifying churches, civic
groups, health care organiza-
tions and city government as
participants in the effort to
bring routine health care to
more people at the Beaches.
"This is a significant feather
in the cap of our communi-
ty," Slyter said, adding he is


proud of the collaboration on
this project.
In November, the
Jacksonville Beach City
Council agreed to allow
Beaches Healthcare Initiative
to lease 3,675-square-feet of
space in the city's
Community Services Center
at 850 6th Avenue S.
"This space was originally
designed and built for med-
ical offices and is ideally suit-
ed for this clinic," property
management supervisor
Diana Pratt said in her
request.
Councilors commended the
healthcare initiative as a posi-


tive step toward making med-
ical care available to all citi-
zens despite their income
level.
"This is really a great thing.
It is targeted at working peo-
ple who can't afford health
insurance," Mayor Fland
Sharp said.
The Beaches Healthcare ini-
tiative will provide medical
care, dental and mental
health services geared toward
those who are underinsured
or without insurance and the
homeless population in con-
junction with the Hope team
that serves the -homeless
through the Sulzbacher


Center in downtown
Jacksonville.
The Beaches Healthcare
Initiative was jointly formed
with Christ Episcopal Church
and operates under the direc-
tion of a 12-member steering
committee.
Cost to lease the suite is
$10.12 per square foot for a
monthly rent of $3,099.25 or
a total of $37,191 per year. A
four percent increase will be
assessed to the annual cost
each with an option to renew
for additional one year terms.
The space was formerly
occupied by the Association
of Retarded Citizens.


Victim takes concerns to JB City Council


P TEENS, from A-1
stole his phone as well, police
said.
A total of six juveniles were
arrested for committing the
crimes, which police said are
all connected.. All but one
juvenile is currently being
held in the Duval Detention
Center, police said.
The charges against the
defendartts are strong arm
robbery, principal in the first
degree and burglary. There
are potentially other charges
from other jurisdictions that
are pending investigation,
according to Jacksonville
Beach police.
Police said. all of the sus-
pects arrested are from
Atlantic Beach and confirmed
that three of them are stu-
dents at Fletcher High School.
They declined to release the
names of the juveniles.
One of the victims Scott
Chesnut, 49, of Jacksonville
Beach Monday addressed the
City Council about the beat-
ing he suffered at 10 p.m.
Saturday as he was locking
his bike at his 2nd Avenue
South apartment.
He said he was robbed of his
cell phone as he was accosted
in the hallway of his apart-
ment complex where college
students, elderly neighbors
and single parents raising
teenagers also reside.
Chesnut suffered eye
injuries, bruised ribs and a
facial laceration during the
attack.
"I'm okay. My wounds will
heal. I'm not angry or bitter at
what happened but I am here
to tell you that I am con-
cerned," he said. "A victim is
not how I choose to portray


myself," he
said. "I choose to see myself as
a survivor and an advocate for
my neighbors."
According to Chesnut, he
said he knew the suspects
were up to no good by their
aggressive body language but
he thought that threatening
to call the police would scare
them away.
It didn't.
Chesnut said he decided to
speak out both as a citizen
and an outspoken advocate of
the city's police department to
encourage continued support
for. the agency and to help
stop the spread of violence.
The detectives investigating
his case, Chesnut said, went
"above and beyond" and their
swift actions resulted in the
arrest of three Atlantic Beach
teens Sunday afternoon with-
in 24 hours of Chesnut's
assault.
"We are fortunate to live in
a town with perhaps the finest
police in all of Northeast
Florida. I am deeply con-
cerned about upcoming budg-
et cuts in Jacksonville and
Tallahassee and how it could
affect our understaffed police
department," Chesnut said.
"I understand that we staff,
of course, based on popula-
tion' here in Jacksonville
Beach. However, on the week-
ends and on some nights we
take on a population much
larger."
Chesnut publicly recog-
nized Det. Daniel Watts, Det.
Andrew Lavender, J.T.
Holcomb, Det. Sgt. Mark
Evans and Officer Eric
Shaughnessy for "their atti-
tude and professionalism and


hard work ... as these young
men were apprehended."

their needs are met and make
sure that they are fully

A husband and wife were
robbed at gunpoint Monday
evening on the beach in the
700 block north in Jacksonville
Beach, police said.
Allen Lamar Pitts, 18, of
Atlantic Beach, and Kyle M.
Perrin, also 18, of Atlantic
Beach were arrested shortly
after the 9:45 p.m. armed rob-
bery, according to Atlantic
Beach police. A 17-year-old
from Atlantic Beach also was
arrested, but police declined to
release his name because he is a
juvenile.
Pitts and Perrin were charged
with armed robbery with a
firearm, police said.
Police said the couple was
walking on the beach at 9:45
p.m. when they were
approached by three male sus-
pects wearing black clothing,
masks and hooded sweatshirts.
Two of the suspects stayed


behind the victims and the
third walked'in front of them,
according to a report.
Police said the male victim
heard what he described as the
sound of a "gun being cocked"
and felt something pressed
against the back of his neck.
One of the suspects demand-
ed that the couple give them
all their money. The victims
turned their pockets inside out
to show that they had no cash.
The woman gave the sus-
pects her cell phone which one
of the men threw into the
ocean, Det. Sgt. Mark Evans
said Tuesday. Neither of the
victims was hurt.
The suspects fled the area,
and later three males sitting on
a walkover railing and wearing
dark clothing were taken into
custody, police said.
One handgun was found in a
van and another weapon was
found in the dunes near where
the suspects were found, police
said.

The Sheriff's Office is split

two sergeants, Mulligan said.
Lieutenants will work with

"The byproduct of that is,
hopefully, more uniform serv-

Mulligan said he knows of

"I think what we're trying to

The Leader's Opinion


Duval school board


must update its


conduct code now


The Duval County School Board annually updates its
Student Code of Conduct and often the changes go
unnoticed.
A change made last year was only recently noticed -
but it's clear the board went too far.
The change, which requires a student be convicted of
a felony before being denied entrance to a classroom,
was made to protect the rights of individuals who are
presumed innocent until proven guilty.
That means any student who can make bail, regardless
of whether a weapon was alleged or a particularly vio-
lent crime is involved, is free to return to school.
Assistant State Attorney Jay Plotkin says upon review
it is clear that the policy change means that the school
board now has no discretion to look at individual cases
where there might be violence or other concerns that
would argue against allowing a child to attend a neigh-
borhood school.
Plotkin was consulted by a school board member last
week after parents expressed concern that an 18-year-old
student, arrested on felony charges involving a con-
cealed weapon.and a planned robbery, was back in class.
In a separate incident this week, three more Fletcher
students, unidentified by police, are facing felony
charges in connection with multiple strong arm rob-
beries reported last weekend.
Under the current code of conduct all of the youths, if
released on bail, are eligible to attend class. This is fur-
ther proof the school board went too far last year and
put the interests of the few ahead of the many.
The change was perhaps well intentioned, but com-
pletely misguided and not well thought out. The spate
of recent incidents involving Fletcher students provides
clear evidence that the board must move quickly to pro-
vide itself a mechanism to keep those accused of violent
felonies out of the neighborhood classroom.
Protecting the safety of all students must be the most
compelling concern.
Board member Nancy Broner, who represents the
Beaches, seems to grasp the urgency of getting the code
changed quickly and giving the board discretion in
these matters. It is vital that her fellow board members
-join her and move swiftly to fix the problem they creat-
ed.
There is no excuse for any delay in this matter.

Worried about the potential


for accidents at A1A site


To the editor:
I have a friend Ron. He
owns a condo that overlooks
the location of A1A in Ponte
Vedra Beach where the four-
lane going south turns into
two lanes. I drink coffee with
my friend Ron each morning
during the week at Starbuck's
and we often speak of Ponte
Vedra Beach and conditions
that we witness in our beauti-
ful paradise. We both love our
community and would not
choose to live anywhere else
given our free choice.
My friend Ron is retired as
am I. He however has a view
from his condo of the point
where A1A turns from four-
lanes to two-lanes. He speaks
of this point not in a humor-
ous manner as the "race
track". He watches each day
as automobiles approaching
the merging point from four-
lanes to two-lanes, ard each in
the various lanes floor their


respective automobile acceler-
ators in an attempt to get to
the two-lane section of A1A
first.
I myself have approached
this point on A1A oftentimes
and have gently tapped my
brakes on my very powerful
and fast automobile to allow
one of the "racers" go on by so
as not to risk a collision. I
could beat each of them to the
confluence easily but chose
not to race. I am in the minor-
ity in this approach to this sec-
tion of A1A as my friend Ron
will most aptly advise anyone
who asks his opinion.
Ironically, most mornings
somewhere -in one side of
Sawgrass or another, a Saint
John's County Sheriff's patrol
car is parked inside the gates'bf
the development attempting
to catch someone making a
rolling stop through a stop-
sign. And of course we laugh
about numerous patrol cars


parked at the Beaches Caf6
each morning as these afore-
mentioned automobiles are
"racing" toward the two-lane.
They seem not to care!
Well, my friend Ron and I
will be in Starbuck's each
morning between 7:00 A.M.
and 9:00 A.M. reading our
papers, drinking coffee and
carrying on conversations
with our little group of friends.
We will just await the sounds
of metal meshing as the colli-
sions take place at our little
spoton A1A. I think that if
the county checked their
records there are many auto-
mobile accidents at this spot.
And I must admit it makes the
location exciting in a strange
sort of way, but do hope that
ifiTrfwii8 Rofiniuia fIMHid f6t
become part'of the accident
statistics at this location.

Why should I pay to cancel an

appointment that doctor misses


To the editor:
Is it just me? Am I the only one who cannot
understand why doctors have appointment
times? A recent visit to a local dermatologist
(we'll call him Dr. "Smith") further convinced
me that Doctors do not have a clue how the rest
of us live. I was the first appointment of the day
at 8:15, and a new patient to boot. I sat there
and filled out the required forms. For 40 min-
utes I sat there while other patients came in. A
dozen patients were taken back to exam rooms
while I sat there patiently. I silently gave Doctor
"Smith" 5 more minutes before I was going to
leave when all of a sudden I hit pay dirt. I was
called back and handed the forms to the girl at
the window. She looked them over and said
that I needed to sign the form a second time. I
have no idea why she wanted me to sign a form
that I had already signed, but then there's
more.
She then handed me a form to sign requiring
that if I cancel an appointment without giving
them 24 hours notice that they could charge


me $50. Charge me $50 that my insurance
would not pay! I sat there for 40 minutes and
they want to charge me if I cancel an appoint-
ment, what rubbish! Now I could understand it
if they would sign a form that said if I am not
seen within 10 minutes of the appointment
time they.would reduce the fee by $50. Or how
about this, if I am not seen within 30 minutes
of my appointment time then the entire visit is
free? It'll never happen. 9.
Doctors constantly complain about costs of
doing business, continuing education, malprac-
tice costs, overhead, and how they can't make
any money. Are they kidding? We see where
they live, we see what they drive, and we know
how cheap they are with copies of time maga-
zine left in the lobby for us to read. Time mag-
azine of all' things, with Roosevelt on the
cover...Teddy, none-the-less! Now they want us
to pay them for not judiciously canceling an
appointment. Geez...

Want to say thanks for flamingo gift


To the editor:
I am a long time subscriber
and I live on Palm Valley
Road for almost four years
now. I like making people
smile. I have a rock bed in my
front yard near the street and
I paint signs for all the holi-
days and special events and
hang them out there. Along
with the signs I have pink
flamingos dressed in cos-
tumes to match the seasons.
Everyone in the neighbor-
hood and those who com-
mute down Palm Valley Road
comment.about them. People


often stop and say thank you
and that they look forward to
seeing new ones.
Unfortunately the Saturday
after Thanksgiving someone
decided they needed flamin-
gos moye than I did.
"Missing two pink flamin-
gos last seen in turkey cos-
tumes."
Well, last weekend someone
left two new flamingos by my
mail box with a note.
Dear Resident,
We have always enjoyed see-
ing your flamingo yard stakes as
we drive by and especially


looked forward to holidays or
special events to see how they
were decorated. We were sad to
see them gone and wanted to
offer these as a replacement. I
hope you can use them, but if
not, please pass them on to
someone else.
A friend
I wanted to send a thank
you note, but as you can see
they didn't identify them-
selves. So I wanted to print a,
thank you note in the paper.

Pulitzer recalled
What a delight it was to read
Rex Edmondson's account of
Rocco Morabito winning the.
Pulitzer Prize for Photography
in 1968 [story in 4-23-08
Leader.
Morabito was honored
Thursday night on the 40th
anniversary of winning the
Pulitzer by the Jacksonville
Historical Society. Now 87, no
one deserves recognition more
than Rocco. He is a humble,
modest man who spent about
50 years working for the old
Jacksonville Journal, which many
readers considered the best
newspaper in Jacksonville for
many years.
Rocco brought to the Journal
its moment of glory
The Journal folded in 1983
after being published for 103
years. It was the last of the
major Florida afternoon news-
papers, which were failing
across the country.
There were a couple of strong
Beaches connections to the
Pulitzer photo. I've lived at the
Beach since January 1955, when
Sthe Journal sent me out to "tem-
porarily" be editor and publish-
er of a weekly newspaper it
owned, the Ocean Beach
Reporter. I was city editor at the
time Rocco's picture was taken
on July 17, 1967. I caught a lot
of flack when I made the deci-
sion to break the deadline and
publish the picture. The flack
disappeared when the paper
came out with Rocco's picture
on Page.1.
We knew we had a great pic-
ture but certainly no one was
thinking Pulitzer Prize. We later
%'eiter`ethe pflftre i.f ahpa#tob
'contest at Gateway ,Shopping
Center on Norwood Avenue
and it came in third.
A week after the picture was
published, I was attending an
editors' workshop at Columbia
University and editors wanted
to talk about the picture. They
all had used it in their hewspa-
pers.
Papers across the country had
been able to publish the picture
is because it was picked up by
the Associated Press and trans-
mitted over the wire photo
machine, a primitive device by
today's technology.
And this is where the second
Beaches connection comes in.
The Associated Press editor-
telegrapher who sent the picture
across the world was Larry
Houser of Neptune Beach. He
knew a great picture when he
saw one and he was the one
who wrote the caption that
makes the photograph so easy ,.
to remember: "The Kiss of Life.' ".
Larry was the father of retired -
public school teacher and foi'
mer Jacksonville Beach
Councilwoman Bennie Furlong,
and brother of one of the most
popular high school coaches
and principals in Duval County
history, Mike Houser.
Forty years ago there was no
such thing as digital cameras
that you can plug into your
computer (there were no per-
sonal computers) and make
prints in a matter of seconds.
Already past deadline, Rocco
had to rush back to the office,
take the film out of his camera,
process it using a variety of
chemicals, make prints on an
enlarger, develop the prints
using chemicals, dry the prints
on a huge rotating cylinder and
take them to the editor's desk
where a selection was made and
pictures cropped. Things that
now take only a few seconds
sometimes took hours to
accomplish in the old trade.
Over the past 40 years, Rocco
has given his permission hun-
dreds of times to use his photo
on training manuals and books.
Something else Rocco did that
day that few people ever knew
about. When he arrived on the
scene and saw what was hap-
pening, before he left his car he
radioed the city desk (we didn't
have phones in cars then) and
told us to call an ambulance.
Then he got out and took what
would become the most famous
picture in Jacksonville journal-
ism history. He probably helped
save Randall Champion's life.

Castles in the Sand


Events to 'open'


beach for season


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
For years in Jacksonville
Beach, weekend festivals
were as familiar a sight as
the tides.
Each spring, streets in the
downtown area closed and
traffic was rerouted almost
weekly to make way for the
thousands that descended
to the oceanfront for fun in
the sun.
The original festival,
Opening of the Beaches,
was embraced as the official
commencement of the
beach season, harkening
back to the days when the
less-populated Beach com-
munities were largely
deserted during the winter
months and crowds came
only in the warmer
months.
The Opening of the
Beaches has also been
known as Welcome Day to
mark the return of seasonal
visitors. The tradition
changed throughout the
year as the Beaches became
year-round communities
and locals questioned
marking the opening of
something that never really
closed.
Though, the art festival
and beauty pageants of yore
are no longer held, the
sandcastle contest and the
Beaches parade still high-
light the last weekend in
April.


The Opening of the
Beaches festival sparked
additional festivals, but
there are fewer of those
than just a decade ago.
City officials said the fre-
quent festivals placed a
burden on the community
and in 2003, the
Jacksonville Beach City
Council moved to scale
down all of the events and
create a more family-friend-
ly environment.
"We've really toned down
the festivals to make room
for smaller, more family-
oriented events," City
Manager George Forbes has
said.
The events are now limit-
ed to one day and one per
month with the exception
of 'the annual three-day
Springing the Blues
Festival, which is held the
first weekend of April, and
this weekend's activities.
Budget cuts and the
inconsistent level of outside
contributions also drove
city officials to reduce the
event schedule.
"As the economy goes
down hill, it's a little bit
harder to find good spon-
sors for some of the larger
events," Forbes said.
Sam Veal, who has pro-
duced the Blues Festival for
18 years, now solely runs
the seafood festival as well.
Both events are among the
only festivals remaining on
the special events schedule.

Balancing rights of the owner, community

- VERANDA, from A-1


"It's also against what we
are trying to achieve in the
ordinance district,"
McCallum said, pointing out
that she was speaking for her-
self and not the ARC.
But County Commissioner
Tom Manuel of Ponte Vedra
Beach said, the commission
will, consider- the wishes of
the Veranda owner as well as
those of the public.
"We are trying to balance
the legal rights of the appli-
cant with the visual rights of
the community," Manuel said
in a telephone interview
Wednesday.
McCallum also questioned
the county staff report, which
says the ARC did not reach a


consensus when the plan
came before the ARC.
"I don't believe that is accu-
rate," she said. "We did reach
a consensus against" addi-
tional signs to face State Road
A1A.
The Veranda's massive
buildings contain numerous
tenants, and Veranda repre-
sentatives claim the overlay
ordinance's restriction of one
wall sign per building "is
geared toward horizontal
development," not buildings
with multiple stories and ten-
ants.
According to ARC rules,
signs are limited to 24 square
feet for whatever wall faces a
major road, with a second


wall sign allowed if the build-
ing abuts a second road.
In recent years, the ARC has
followed the rules strictly,
denying, for example, a larger
sign for Fresh Market, whose
representatives said 24 feet
was inadequate for its size
and for drivers on A1A, where
the speed limit is 45 mph.
The St. Johns County
Commission allowed a larger
sign when Fresh Market
appealed.
The ARC denied a second
wall sign for a bank on A1A
and Ponte Vedra Lakes
Boulevard because the bank
did not own the land along
Ponte Vedra Lakes Boulevard.
The County Commission


allowed the second sign, with
one commissioner saying rea-
sonable concessions should
be made for businesses.
Manuel said the original
development of regional
impact where the Veranda
stands "has a lot of rights
imbedded into it from,,a lopg
time ago.
"Clearly the signage in the
Veranda is inadequate,"
Manuel said, adding that the
Veranda owner is "not asking
for the maximum amount
that they're legally entitled
to."
"We have to sit back and
look at the facts," Manuel
said. "I try to minimize the
financial risk of the county."


Source: Supporting documentation to St. Johns County Commission agenda item
The Veranda on State Road A1A in Ponte Vedra Beach (below) is asking for the St. Johns County Commission to approve a sign
plan that would allow more signs than are allowed under the Ponte Vedra Overlay District. On the sign plan above, each lettered
building shows the number of signs proposed for each side. The. overlay ordinance limits wall signs to one, 24-square-foot sign to
face a major road, with one additional wall sign permitted if the building abuts a second road.

Th is weekend's NFL Draft
Sgot started a bit early
When the Miami
Dolphins singed a deal with
offensive lineman Jake Long
for $57 million, $30 million of
it guaranteed.
Not bad for a first job out of
college. Like Long, my first
job out of school involved
South Florida and more
money than I've ever made
before; only difference was
he'll soon be living in a house
suitable from MTV's Cribs
with a neat fleet of cars while
I was driving a hand-me-down
and barely supporting a one-
bedroom apartment.
The Dolphins signing
means the excitement of
watching Mel Kiper break
down the top pick is Long
gone. It changes the tradition
a little too. No more waiting
until midway through train-
ing camp to see what kind of
deal the top pick finally signs.
Only question I have is, will
the Dolphins take all 15 min-
utes of the clock to make the
announcement...
For the Jacksonville Jaguars,
this draft may seem meaning-
ess to fans. For one, the Jags
ire way down on the board,
picking in the 26th spot in
the first round.
One thing we shouldn't
expect is to see the Jags pick a
player that will transform the
team. If last season was any
indication, we will have a
playoff team here. Is the team
going to be better than the
Patriots or the Colts? It may
not be at that level, and it
won't get a player in this draft
that will put it ahead, but like
every draft, the team can sure
get some help.
With Marcus Stroud gone,
the Jags would be wise to fill
his gap up front on defense.
I'd love to see the Jags make
a push for Chad Johnson.
Imagine having a receiver that
could carry the team down
the field the way Jimmy
Smith did back in the day ...
At draft time it's also list
time, including the all-time
draft bests and busts.
On at least one list, Michael
Vick was named as an-all-time
draft bust. Sorry. but putting
aside what happened off the
field, Vick was by far one of
the most exciting players to
watch on it.
To lump him in the same
category as David Carr or
Ryan Leaf is just wrong. If it
weren't for the dog-fighting
thing, Vick would still be one
of the top players in the
league and the Atlanta Falcons
wouldn't be falling apart faster
than an Alka Seltzer tablet
under Niagara Falls.
Vick wasn't a draft bust. A
draft bust is someone who
didn't perform to expecta-
tions. Like, say, Byron
Leftwich ...
Danica Patrick finally won
in the Indy Racing League. It's
being made a big deal and it is
a big deal. Regardless of the
critics, Patrick made women
athletes world-wide proud.
She won in a male-dominat-
ed sport. That's like Serena
Williams winning a men's
tournament or Michelle Wie
winning a PGA Tour event.
Danica can no longer be asso-
ciated with Anna Koumikova,
a hot, PR booster that can't
win. You know, Danica has
now officially won more races
in the past few years than
Dale Eamhardt Jr., who's
NASCAR winless streak is at
70 races . .
Prediction of the week:
NASCAR is in Talladega, and
Earnhardt runs well there.
He'll be standing on the car
. spraying beer all over his crew
before the weekend's over.


FROM STAFF


Nease High's Yannick
Yoshizawa and oIm Blackwell
earned boys singles titles in
the Class 3A state champi-
onship tournament Thursday.
Yoshizawa was a 7-6, 6-3
winner over Michael Wardell,
of Fort Myers High, in yester-
day afternoon's final.
Yoshizawa, seeded third in the
No. 1 boys singles draw, beat
Daytona Seabreeze's Erik
Sayger 6-0, 6-1 in the quarter-
finals, then dispatched the
tournament's top seed,
Wharton's Michael Alford, 6-
3, 6-3 to advance to the state
final.
Blackwell won a grueling
three-set final, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2,
over Tampa Wharton's James
Wong to take home the boys
No. 2.singles championship.
Blackwell was a 6-0, 6-0
winner over Daniel Lang of
Seminole in the quarterfinal
round, then defeated Fort
Myers' Kenneth Palmer, 6-2, 6-
2, to reach the final.
Following the first day of
play Wednesday at Sanlando
Park in Altamonte Springs,
Tampa Wharton led the boys
3A competition with 10
points. Nease and Fort
Lauderdale St. Thomas
Aquinas were tied for second
with eight points each.
But the Panthers had a big
advantage Thursday with
three singles players -
Yoshizawa, Blackwell and Will
Cheshire in championship
matches, as well as the dou-
bles team of Yoshizawa and
Josh Kessler which had
advanced to the semifinals.
Cheshire, seeded second
amongst No. 3 boys players,
blanked Lakewood's Tyler
Benton, 6-0, 6-0, in the quar-
terfinals before rolling to a 6-
4, 6-3 victory over Pensacola
Washington's Olin Racine in
the semifinal round of the
tournament.
Cheshire was set to face St.
Thomas Aquinas's German
Gonzalez, seeded second in
the draw, in the champi-
onship match.. ,: i
Nease's Austin Saacke won
his opening round match over
Martin County's John
Christenson, 6-3, 6-1, before
falling to the No. 4 boys top
seed Chad Miles of St. Thomas
Aquinas. Saacke's semifinal
was a tension-filled, three-set
match that Christenson even-
tually won, 5-7, 6-0, 6-1.
In doubles play, Kessler and
Yoshizawa won their opening
round match over Fort Myers'
Palmer and Wardell, 6-4, 6-3.
The Panthers duo was
scheduled to face the bracket's
top seeded team of Alford and
Rohit Navelkar, from
Wharton, in the semifinal
round on Thursday.
The Class 3A team competi-
tion was likely to come down
to a battle between Wharton
and Nease, with each school
having three singles players
and a doubles team still in
action on the second day of
the tournament.

Jacobs takes inaugural BFAST duathlon

Justin Jacobs, right, won last Saturday's Beaches Fine Arts Series duathlon that featured a two-
mile run, a 12-mile cycling portion, then another two-mile run in and around the town of Nocatee
Ponte Vedra Beach. Jacobs, 25, is a frequent competitor and winner in the summer-long BFAST
sprint triathlon series. Atlantic Beach's Steve Pettit, above during the cycling portion of last
Saturday's race, came in third. The event helped raise funds for the Beaches Fine Arts series of
concerts and programs.

Excitement builds for next week's WaveMasters event

Excitement builds for next week's WaveMasters event


By MITCH KAUFMANN
CONTRIBUTOR

Trshe Annual WaveMasters
SSurf Contest is North
SFlorida's biggest beach
event, where hundreds of the
areas top surfers
converge on
the magic sand-
bars of the Jax
Beach Pier to
compete for
thousands of
dollars worth of
prizes, and of
course, the
trademark Balsa
wood trophies,
made by
George
Robinson.
This year the
contest will cel-
ebrate its 25th
Anniversary,
and will be May
3rd and 4th at
the pier.
You can enter
at Sunrise Surf
Shop, or go to
WaveMaster.orgS u
and print out
an entry form
and mail it in. C u
Proceeds go to
benefit local
youth and envi-
ronmental
charities.
Every year the WaveMasters
always seems to get fun waves,
despite forecasts to the con-
trary. And the surfers always
make the most of the condi-
tions.


Just for entering, all contest-
ants get a bag full of goodies,
including the official contest T-
shirt by Gary Mack.
This year the contest is dedi-
cated to Jed Davis, one of
North Florida's top competitors
of all time. We lost Jed in
December as
the result of a
tragic traffic
accident. Jed
never missed a
final at The
WaveMasters,
i and always ele-
Svated the spirit
in the water.
Last year's
contest was
possibly the
best ever, but I
think we
always say
that. The
weather was
perfect, the
waves were
really good,
and the surf-
ing was spec-
tacular.
The Micro
Mini Division,
9 & under, was
won by Logan
Raulerson.
Six-year-old
Graham Terry
took second.
Graham's
father, Daniel Terry, is one of
North Florida's best surfers.
Daniel's dad, Rick Terry, has
been a surf contest administra-
tor for over 20 years.
This is a prime example of
the multi-generational family


tradition of the WaveMasters
Contest and surfing in general.
The Menehune Division (12
& Under) was dominated by
Tristan Thompson. Tristan is
like the Jax Beach Kelly Slater
of Minihunes. His older broth-
ers, Cody and Evan, are on the
World Tour for Junior Pros, and
2007 was Tristan's third
WaveMasters win in a row.
The Boys winner was Beyrick
de Vries from South Africa.
Riding for BILT Surfboards, a
WaveMasters sponsor, Beyrick
wowed the crowd with aerial
surfing, Brent Lamprecht,
Tristan Thompson and Josh
Motes, finished behind
Beyrick.

Male Competition
In the Junior Men, Kevin
Cox stepped it up in the final
to take down Luke Vasillides,
John Massey, and Zack
Weinert. Kevin has been grow-
ing up in the local surf scene
since he was five. His dad, Jim,
helps run the event.
Kevin and cohorts Brent
Lampracht and Luke Vasillides
can be seen dominating the
pier on most days.
In the Masters Division, 30-
39, Jeff Venn came out of the
retirement to take down crowd
favorite Jason Motes, Brazilian
pro Sergio Cavalcante, and Jay
Smith from Clever Surfboards
in Daytona.
Fifteen years ago, Jeff Venn
was virtually impossible to beat
in a surf contest. He grew up,
got married and became a
teacher. He's back and surfing
better than ever!
In Grand Masters (50 &


Over) local legend Danny
MacDaniels won it for the sec-
ond straight year, after taking
second to Terry Deloach three
years ago.

Female Competition
In the Girls Division (17 &
Under) local superstar Kayla
Durden, 14, placed first for the
second consecutive year, taking
down local favorite Jessie
Carnes in the process.
Kayla Beckmann, riding for
Clean Ocean Surfboards, won
the Junior Women (18 to 29)
and the Women's Longboard.
Jacksonville probably has
more female surfing talent
than any other city on the East
Coast.
The grand finale of last year's
event was the Pro Final. Eric
Rheame, Jason Motes and Peter
Jacoki were on fire, but Jimmy
Bloomfield, from Flagler Beach,
just blew everyone out of the
water and walked away a thou-


sand dollars richer.
The last event of the week-
end is always the Tandem. Last
year was difficult because a
storm chopped up the surf
before the heat started, but
Scott Clelland and Erica
Satterwhite pulled off some
great poses for the victory.
Thousands of dollars worth
of surfboards and accessories
are won on Sunday by those
smart enough to buy tickets
throughout the weekend for a
mere dollar.

Proceeds benefit local
charities
The money raised from the
raffle goes to benefit local char-
ities, such as BEAM, which has
a fundraiser party at The Ritz
Bar that Saturday night, and
The Sea Turtle Patrol, Carver
Center and Beaches Watch, to
name a few.
The WaveMasters is made
possible this year by Blue


Haven Pools, Mike and
Kimberly Quintal,. who are big
supporters of our local surf
community. Their son, Justin,
is a champion longboarder and
shortboarder and Dane is a
champion skateboarder.
The Open Division is the
most exciting of all amateur
divisions. The hottest surfers
from all age groups compete
for a trip to Costa Rica last
year, won by Wayne
Satterwhite, Jr.
Wayne then went on to win
the East Coast Championship
in Hatteras, N.C. and the
National Championship in
Huntington Beach, Calif.
Wayne has joined other Jax
Beach pros like Eric Rheame,
the Thompsons, and Adam
McGuill on the world qualify-
ing Pro Tour.
You can watch highlights
from last year's WaveMasters
Surf Contest Sunday at 5:30
pm, on Comcast channel 7.


The Beaches Chapel
School announces the
debut of a new 5-kilome-
ter (3.1-mile) run/walk set for
May 3.
Starting from the school's
campus at 8:30 a.m., the
Fiesta of Fitness looks to be a
real fun event for every mem-
ber of the family regardless of
age or athletic ability. Beaches
Chapel is located at 610
Florida Blvd. in Neptune
Beach.
Unlike many runs that take
place in the Beaches area, the
Festival of Fitness will not be
just another 5K run up and
down the beach. The course
will be run entirely on the
roads in and around Jarboe
Park in Jacksonville Beach -
a totally new, original road
run.
You would
expect that a

bit they will finish at the
Beaches Chapel campus.
Then the party starts. One
of Jacksonville's true crowd
pleasers will
be on the
scene. The
se lf Jacksonville
Jaguar's mas-
cot, Jaxson
deVille will
he rbe working
the crowd
and making
friends with
every kid he
can find.
There will
be music,
food and
drink and T-
shirts to all
registered participants. This
looks to be a fun-filled, not-
to-be-missed athletic and
social event for all ages.
The races cap an event that


begins the night before with
an outdoor dinner featuring a
personal appearance by one of
the members of the
Jacksonville Jaguars football
team.

Jacksonville's ace female
marathoner, Kim Pawelek,
may have crossed a milestone
last Sunday. She finished
123rd out of 124 finishers in
the USA Track and Field
Marathon Trials race in
Boston.
Only the top there' could be
assured of a trip to Beijing,
China and a place on the
USA's Olympic team and 24
runners did not finish the do-
or-die elimination race.
Pawelek is now 34-years old
and nagging injuries and sub-
par performances are begin-
ning to take their toll. She
once told me that training
had become a drag and the
Olympic Trials Marathon was
her only real motivation.
Unlikely she will ever run
another OTM and one can
only wonder if the race on
Sunday wasn't her marathon
swan song.
I can't picture her beating
herself up over the 25.2-mile
soul destroyer anymore. Kim
has had a fine marathoning
career, even winning the Twin
Cities Marathon in 1999, but
no one can go on doing it for-
ever.
I think that we will see her
running in our local races for

football players to sign with
colleges.
Dambeck, an outside line-
backer and defensive end, will

Thompson, a receiver,
signed Sunday to play football
and baseball at Washington &
Lee University in Lexington,
Virginia.


quite a few years to come but
I wouldn't be at all surprised
if she retires from competitive
marathon running.
Pawelek will probably be
much happier running the
shorter races, like the Gate
River Run 15K, anyway. That
is, if racing hasn't completely
burned her out by now. After
all, she has been at it since
high school.
Despite her finish in
Boston, Kim ran a 3-hour, 27-
minute marathon.
Disappointing to her but most
of us would be over the moon
with a run like that.,

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.

ARTS




Contemporary art on exhibit at two galleries


Contemporary art is being
featured this weekend at
two popular and impor-
tant galleries.
Last night, the Museum of
Contemporary Art opened a
new exhibit, "Paper Cuts:
Contemporary Works on
Paper," together with three
other exhibits: "And Further
The Dew Drop Falls," installa-
tions, "Civitates Orbin
Terrarum," works on canvas
and paper with a message of
world destruction, and "Carly
So Far," photographs by Francis
Bishop Good of her niece grow-
ing through several stages.
This exhibit educates us as to
what this generation of artists
is creating. They are expressing
their feelings in picture form
rather than trying to capture
the beauty that surrounds us.
We are being given a mes-
sage, a recording of today's
society. The exhibit will be at
MOCA through Aug. 21. To
better understand this art the
museum will be giving a series
of luncheon talks, the first tak-
ing place on Wednesday, May 1
4, at noon.
Director of education J.
Marshall Adams will discuss
"Civitates Orbis Terrarum,
Recent Drawings by John
Bailly." Order a box lunch from
Cafe Nola and enjoy this hour.
Call 366-6911 for information.
You can register now for one-
week summer sessions for kids.
The sessions will run from June
16 to Aug. 8.
Learn more about contempo-
rary art by visiting today's J.
Johnson Gallery opening recep-
tion for contemporary painter
James Bohary.
Bohary's works have no sub-
ject matter and no message.
They are original creations of
colorful spaces in the form of
cubes, flowing lines, angles
seemingly unrelated, but mak-
ing a composition which draws
the viewer into the painting.
You will want to study the
work and imagine what it
means. It will mean different
things to different people, and
that is what makes contempo~nb
rary are challenging and iritei-
esting.
Bohary's works will be at the
J. Johnson Gallery through
June 20 at 177 4th Ave. N.,
Jacksonville Beach. Call 435-
3200.

Art Walks are a good way to
see what our local artists are
producing.
They could be more reward-
ing to the artists, sponsors and
the public if participating artists
were allowed to continue to
exhibit their works until the
next month's Art Walk or at
least for a couple of additional
weeks.
The Adele Grage Cultural
Center is one of the art stops
on the North Beach Art Walk,
and this center has adopted a
policy of allowing the works to
remain.
Last week, Laura Dailey
exhibited "Spirit of the


( s

ALICE
GARLAND
ART SCENE
Butterfly," and her "spirit
dolls," which are a collection of
healing effigies created after
Hurricane Katrina's destruction.
An anthropologist and artist,
Bailey uses a mix of broken,
found and organic objects to
create beautiful images in the
form of wall hangings.
You can see these unique art-
works through the end of the
month. Another artist exhibit-
ing for this event is photogra-
pher Pablo Rivera.
His photographs of Banyan
Trees look like groupings of
human figures. Enjoy this
unusual exhibit through April
30 at 716 Ocean-Blvd., Atlantic
Beach.
The Cultural Center at Ponte
Vedra is exhibiting the wood
sculptures of David Engdahl.
The Center will be starting new
classes April 28, which will run
through June 7. The classes
include landscape oil painting,
acrylic painting, pastel paint-
'ing, Hatha yoga and an open
studio from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
on Saturday.
The Center offers studio
space for artists to create their
works independent of an
instructor. Space is free to
members and $10 for non-
members. The Center hosts lec-
tures at 4 p.m. on the first
Monday of every month.
On May 5, muralist Meg
Monahan will explain the
process of creating murals. For
a spring/summer.schedule of
Scl'asses and cai ipscall 280-
0616, or visit 50 Executive Way,
Ponte Vedra Beach.

The 32nd annual Sandcastle Contest has space for builders


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Ready, set, shovel!
Space is still available in all
categories to participate in
the 32nd annual Sandcastle
Contest Saturday in
Jacksonville Beach.
The event is held from 9
a.m. to 11 a.m. and is staged
on the beach in front of the


Lifeguard Station at the foot
of Beach Boulevard.
Check in begins at 8:40
a.m. Participants who are not
checked in by 9:15 a.m. will
also forfeit their spots.
Pre-registration is closed
but open spaces will be avail-
able for walk-ups Saturday
morning.
There are five openings in


the 8 and under category,
seven slots in the 9 to 12 age
group and four spaces in the
13 to 16 category.
A maximum of three people
may work on a castle except
in the family and group divi-
sions. Assistance is limited to
carrying water for the partici-
pants in the 8 and under
group.


In the family category, six
spots are still open and nine
spaces are still available in the'
group category.
Judging will conclude at 11
a.m. First and second place
winners will receive trophies.
All winners should stay in
their reserved spot to allow
photographers to take their
pictures.


The basis for the judging is
design difficulty, craftsman-
ship and overall appearance.
Builders are encouraged
bring shovels, buckets and
other hand tools. No man-
made objects may be includ-
ed as part of the sculpture.
Items native to the beach
such as seashells, seaweed and
coconuts are permitted. Sea


oats are illegal to pick and
will not be allowed.
Call the city's Parks and
Recreation Department at
247-6236 for information.
All registered participants
receive a free T-shirt.
The contest is sponsored by
The Beaches Leader and the
Jacksonville Beach Recreation
Department.


File Photos
Over the years, The Leader's Sandcastle Contest has attracted
crowds to both build and admire the castles in the sand at the foot
of Beach Boulevard. Left, the Parsons family sculpts an octopus.

National Day of Prayer to be celebrated locally


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
In her ninth 3yar volunteer-
ing for the National Day of
Prayer, Ponte Vedra resident
Susan Alberti serves as
Coordinator for the First Coast
NDP.
This year's observance will
be held from 4 to 8:30 p.m. on
Thursday, May 1 at the
Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium.
"It is a day of prayer for all
people to pray for our govern-
ment, the military, churches,
families, media, businesses,
and schools," said Alberti.
Alberti began her efforts for
the National Day of Prayer
nine years ago by organizing
an observance at Ponte Vedra
Presbyterian Church.
Her interest in ,the event
was inspired by a trip to Russia
which gave her an apprecia-
tion for the freedom to wor-
ship which Americans have,
she said.
After organizing NDP obser-
vances at Ponte Vedra
Presbyterian Church for three
years, Alberti began an effort
to make this a community-
wide prayer event.
Alberti, however was seri-
ously injured in an accident
as plans were underway for the
event.
Injured in a 50-foot fall ,
Alberti faced a long recovery
including multiple surgeries.
As she began her recovery, vol-
unteers from several churches
came forward to support her
and help with the National
Day of Prayer observance.
"What God showed me was
that He was doing it, not me,"
she said.
"My faith has been so built
up in the past nine years....as I


watched the community come
together."
One hundred churches and
over 50 ministers and clergy
participated in last year's First
Coast National Day of Prayer,
said Alberti.
"We have all denominations
coming together," she said. "I
have learned how much God
loves each of us."
Alberti has been working
with a 60-member Task Force
and other volunteers to
organizes this year's First
Coast National Day of Prayer.
The National Day of Prayer
is a tradition dating back to the
year 1775 when the
Continental Congress was
writing the U.S. Constitution
and set aside a day of prayer
and fasting, she said.
Each year, the National Day
of Prayer is called for by a joint
resolution of Congress, the
President, and other elected
officials.
This is a critical time when
prayer .is needed for the war,
the election, and for the econ-
omy,said Alberti.
Highlights of the 2008 First
Coast National Day of Prayer
will be Youth and Children's
Worship, Prayer Time with
local pastors and others, and a
Ministry and Marketplace Fair.
Pastor Richard Cooper from
Ponte Vedra Presbyterian
Church, Pastor Tom Bary from
Neptune Baptist Church, and
the Rev. Dr. Steve Bowersox
from Christ Episcopal Church
are some of the beaches minis-
ters participating in the
event.
In response to the Biblical
"call to action," this year for
the first time there will be a
food collection, at the event.
Any non-perishable food
donated will be shared with
