- WATER, from A-1
in the cooler months to one
day a week and limiting the
amount of water that can be
applied during each irriga-

the landscape irrigation pro-

their address," he said.

ment on the proposed
changes will begin June 18 in
Sanford.

Dennis McDonnell, of Jacksonville, is helped out of the water
by two volunteers working with They Will Surf Again in
Jacksonville Beach, an event presented by the Life Rolls On
Foundation. Those with spinal cord injuries were invited to
enjoy a free day of riding the waves. McDonnell called it, "the
best thing I've ever done in my 21years as a quadriplegic."

Growth" and No. 2, "funding,

Penny Halyburton (right), elections supervisor for St. Johns
County, speaks to the audience at Monday's candidate forum
at the Palm Valley Community Center on Canal Boulevard.


McMahon: "I look forward
to championing that cause."
Do you support charter govern-
ment?
Bryan: "We have to have a
system of government that
will not allow commissioners
to run amok."
McMahon: "I support each
and every issue" residents
want and "I look forward to
championing [them]."
At one point, Stevenson
bristled at Abbatiello's con-
tention that she approved
every development brought
before the commission.
"My decisions have been
thoughtful and . . . I have
voted against projects several
times," she said.
Rich, on the other hand,
introduced himself by saying,
"I'm probably one of the most
politically incorrect persons

By the end of the evening,
four of the five St. Johns
County commissioners were
in attendance, with Manuel of
Ponte Vedra Beach and
Sanchez in the audience. Their
terms expire in 2010.

ber why Bryant did not attend,
Silkebaken said he told her he
had to give a deposition on
Monday.

At the state level, the compe-
tition team practices a three-
minute routine upon which
they are judged and awarded
points, similar to judging in
gymnastics. Bartram Trail High
is the only other high school
in St. Johns County to offer
competitive cheerleading.
Gene Baker, the athletic
director of Ponte Vedra High,
said they decided to offer the
competition aspect of the team
because they felt students at
the new school would be ihter-
ested.
Cheerleaders at Landrum
Middle School, a feeder school
for PV High, placed second at
the National Cheerleaders
Association middle school
competition in Daytona Beach
in April.
"The competitive team is
typically in conjunction with
the spirit side, but it's a little
more refined because they are
being judged," Baker said. "It's
still the aerials and the tum-
bling that you see at halftimes,

Beamer played soccer at
Appalachian State University
and was a member of a four-
time state champion high
school cheerleading squad in
Missouri. During summer
breaks while she was in college
she assisted in coaching the
cheerleaders at her high
school, she said.
"Spirit cheerleading can be
rewarding in that you see the
reactions from the crowd, you
see the team doing well, or the
team having a hard game to
play, so you as the cheerleader
have to get them pumped up
and keep their spirits up,"
Beamer said.
"Competitive cheerleading

OPINION

The Leader's Opinion

Lifeguard station is true icon
Using iconic images to mark the downtown area of
Jacksonville Beach is part of a vision to improve the
overall appearance of the community.
It has been suggested that tall, red lifeguard chairs are
such an image and that it would be appropriate to
install chairs in at least five locations throughout the
project zone, which extends from 6th Avenue North to
2nd Avenue South
Consultants identified the chairs as an icon that will
focus attention as people visit the area.
According to Jacksonville Beach's grounds mainte-
nance director "It took quite a bit to get DOT to buy
into it."
Understandably so, given the reaction of elected offi-
cials who, when presented the plan last week, nearly
guffawed at the feasibility.
Perhaps a little rejiggering could be done and the
true icon of Jacksonville Beach - the historic
American Red Cross Lifesaving Corps headquarters at
the foot of Beach Boulevard - could be used to focus
attention.
Banners with images of the structure, located in the
target area, could easily be hung along the roadway.
Banners may not be as original as lifeguard chairs in
medians, but they have the added benefit of not being
attractive, but possibly dangerous nuisances.


Letters to the editor:

Locals helping locals is great


To the editor:
My son Blake Young attends
Seabreeze and is a student of
Ms. Axler. We received the
notice concerning the unfor-
tunate accident of Daniell
O'Reilly. We held our Annual
Charity Golf Tournament For
Cliffs Grill on Saturday, May


3 in her honor. We are pleased
to announce we raised
$6,700.
Thank you for making the
community aware of the
needs of our local families.

Food drive participation is applauded


To the editor:
On behalf of the board of
directors and staff of Beaches
Emergency Assistance
Ministry, Inc,
(www.BEAM.com) in
Jacksonville Beach, we'd like to
thank the generous folks in
Jacksonville and the Beaches
for their contribution to the
National Association of Letter
Carriers Food Drive this past
Saturday, May 10.
These food donations go a
long way to helping the work-
ing poor of our area to keep
" their'rarniulies fed when they.,
iuM out of dollars before they
run out of week or month.
Times are tougher for all of
us, with increased gas and food
prices, but for many of our
neighbors, a 50 cent per gallon
increase in the price of gas
means the difference in how
much they're able to put in
their next grocery cart-or


whether they can go to the
grocery store at all.
This year, our very generous
neighbors dug down deep and
substantially increased the
food donations they sent into
the Jacksonville Beach Post
Office by way of their hard-
working letter carriers.
BEAM distributed 70 tons of
food in 2007, all donated
through churches, schools,
clubs, businesses, Lutheran
Social Services Food Bank, and
by individual donors. We are
grateful that in hard times,
,those w\ho have more- a'rei.I-
ihg to share with" thiWi' tvlio
have less.
Thank you all for opening
your hearts and your wallets to
the needy of north Florida.

Vivian Southwell
President, Board of Trustees
Beaches Emergency
Assistance Ministry, Inc.


JEA should share plans with us


To the editor:
I have read [Jacksonville
Electric Authority's] recent
insert in my utility bill con-
cerning ways to reduce our use
of electricity.
I also remember your full
page ads in the Florida Times
Union urging everyone to
switch to compact fluorescent
light bulbs (CFLs) in order to
reduce our use of electricity.
My concern is that in none
of this advertising have you
made any mention of the mer-
cury contained in each bulb,
and the danger to our landfills
and environment caused by
this mercury. Nor did you
mention that the cost of recy-
cling for each bulb is $4.


These are huge detriments
to our environment, and yet
our only supplier of our elec-
tricity did not even mention
these dangers! This is so unfair
to our citizens to be left in the
dark on such an important
environmental concern.
Please respond as to how we
are to deal with these dangers.
If our citizens knew the cost of
recycling, do you think they
would buy these bulbs? I don't
think so.
Please share your plans and
answers to these very pressing
issues.

More letters to the editor:


The Leader's coverage is much appreciated


To the editor:
I left for Tampa Friday
afternoon, just as the story
[Leader May 2, "White trains
dogs and owners"] was get-
ting out, so I am only just
now able to thank you. That
was a great piece, perhaps the
best thing that anyone has
ever written about me and
the response has been won-
derful.
I am probably going to give
helpful training to a dozen
people so far, and I believe
that my web site got around
600 hits. And people want to


help with K9 Veterans Day.
One sweet woman is teaming
with her 12 year old son to
make this a summer project.
Once a week they will put
out petitions in pet stores,
etc, and then pick them up
and get them back to me.
I was headed to Tampa on
1-75 about an hour south of
Ocala, when an SUV pulled
up besides me, and the peo-
ple were waving. I figured
that perhaps I had trained
their dog, and they just hap-
pened to see my dog training
ad on our car. Well then a


couple of minutes later they
caught up to me again and
this time they held up the
story in their window. It just
blew me away, and probably
them as well.
The pictures were great,
the story covered a lot of vital
information, and I am now
forever grateful to [Chuck
Adams], to Johnny
[Woodhouse], and to The
Leader.
Thanks again!

Don't throw city employees under the budget bus


To the editor:
Jim Hanson, City Manager
of Atlantic Beach, must be a
favorite of his employees
based on the comments he
made in the article "AB to
Budget for Less Money Next
Year".
After a year where Atlantic
Beach funded school band
S'" 1tr' boufit'iTbib ai'.at'" a d
'itatempf("ed 'to purchase
much-needed marsh land,


Mr. Hanson seems to be lean-
ing towards balancing next
year's budget on the backs of
his 'employees. Frankly
speaking, the citizens of the
State of Florida, at the
bequest of their governor,
elected to cut funding to
their local governments.
Losing some services should
be the';result of this actibn,-
Police officers, firemen,
teachers, and other public


employees are already paid
well below the prevailing
wage, especially in a small
town like Atlantic Beach.
Local governments need to
get more creative in manag-
ing their finances, and not
throw their employees under
the bus each time they need
to balance the budget.

This redneck explains why he doesn't drink wine


To the editor:
My acquaintances at the
club, insist that I am a 'Red
Neck' because I don't drink
wine, as they do. They are
sophisticated.
I've pondered their obser-
vation of my refusal to not
drink wine, and have come
to believe, it's my mothers
fault.
You see when I was grow-
ing up, she insisted that I
be careful about the things I
put in my mouth. Like dirt!
So when I read Tom
Marquart and Patrick Darr's


evaluation of the recent
wines, in The Beaches Leader,
it reinforced the things I
have never tasted in my
lifetime i.e Good shoulders?
whatever that means. Don't
drink bad shoulders !
Also, Black Earth ? I could
go on and on, so I listed
some of the reasons why I
Don't Drink Wine! It tastes
like Hedonistic fruit,
French oak, Nice complexi-
ty, Tropical notes, Stamina,
Blend of Semillon, Botryose
intensely, Harmony,
Opulent nose, vanillin oak,


Uncomplicated, Medium
body, Nice mineral edge,
Cedar finish, a hint of earth,
wine of conviction, Black
earth, Good shoulders,
Earthiness, Chewy, Nice
structure, Soulful, Sweet
oak, Light as a feather,
Serious, Interestingly
restrained, Happy, Friendly.
Just to name a few !
So I will stick with my
favorite " VO & a Bud."

I'll miss the McCormick bridge gateway to Beaches


To the editor:
Man---the McCormick
bridge is being dismantled.
As a life long resident of the
Beach, I was drawn to the
history of the bridge and
what it has personally meant
to me and others. It was our
castle gate. When we passed
over it we did so with respect
and loyalty. The name
McCormick (the bridge
name)--an honorable beach
family-- added integrity to
the bridge's existence. Even


now I live on a street named
after one of the McCormick
daughters and am reminded
of the historic family name.
But the passing of the
bridge is sad. I will never
again hear the high pitch
tones when your auto tires
hit the metal grating. Many
times I would launch into
song based on the tone
pitch. I would always look
to the right and to the left to
view the beautiful waterway.
My family would every once


and a while eat a picnic
lunch under the bridge on
the city built picnic tables.
And I always marveled at the
little control room (like a
tiny house) wondering what
it was like to work there all
night ---lot of reading- I bet.
Our castle of paradise
Jacksonville Beach will no
longer be the same with our
beautiful mechanical castle
gate gone. Thank you.

Don't tinker with term limits in Jacksonville Beach


To the editor:
This past week at a work-
shop, Jacksonville Beach City
Council Member Penny
Christian brought up a sub-
ject of Term Limits. She
wants to change the City
Charter to allow a person to
be elected to two four-year
terms on the City Council
and then get elected as
Mayor for two more consecu-
tive four years for a total of
16 years. I say no and will
explain my position.
The current Term Limits
have been in effect since the
early 1900's and have worked
extremely well. The City


Charter states; "this limita-
tion shall include service of
mixed terms as Mayor and/or
council person." Every two
years the people have the
opportunity to elect up to'
34% or 57% of the Council,
three District Council
Members and four At-Large
.Council Members which
include the Mayor. It is a non
partisan election.
The Mayor and Council of
the City of Jacksonville, The
Governor and Congress of
the State of Florida and The
President of the United States
are limited to two four year
terms. The only body which


does not have term limits is
the Congress of the United
States and we all know how
dysfunctional they are.
Nothing ever seems to get
done there.
It is my opinion that keep-
ing a person on the City
Council for 16 years could
lead to all kinds of problems
i.e.; cronyism, corruption
and power struggles, etc.
The system works very well
now and I do not believe we
should tinker with it.

Idea for POW/MIA flag


originated in our area


"You Are Not Forgotten."
Those words, a patriotic
mantra as Memorial Day
approaches, are imprinted on
the official flag created to
honor and remember U.S.
armed forces personnel who
are still prisoners of war or
missing in action.
The flag is displayed
prominently at a single-seat
dinner table poignantly
reserved in absentia for those
individuals at locations such
as Jacksonville Beach's
American Legion Post 129
and Veterans of Foreign Wars
Post 3270.
Says a military-oriented
Internet website addressed
www.homeofheroes.com, "Its
presence (the POW/MIA flag)
serves to remind us that,
while we enjoy the,privileges
of freedom, somewhere there
are soldiers who have not
been accounted for and may,
in fact, be held against their
will by the enemies of free-
dom."
The origin of this flag
involves Jacksonville, in that
the idea for it resulted from
a 1970 Times-Union article
regarding the admission of
the People's Republic of
China to the United Nations.
Annin & Co., one of the
largest flag manufacturers in
the world, followed the prac-
tice of providing flags for
each UN member nation.
Reading about that in the
paper, Mrs. Michael Hoff of
Orange Park, whose husband
was missing in Vietnam,
decided that a flag was need-
ed to remind Americans
about our unaccounted-for
warriors.
She contacted Annin's vice
president, Norman Rivkees,
who promptly arranged with
the company's advertising
agency to design the stan-
dard. A graphic designer
there, Newt Helsley, got the

assignment. As a World War
II combat veteran, he agreed
with the need.
About the same time, his
son, Jeffrey, was medically
discharged from the Marine
Corps because of an attack of
hepatitis which left him
weak and emaciated.
His dad, shocked over
Jeffrey's gaunt appearance,
used him as the model for
the silhouetted, downcast
prisoner figure on the draw-
ing which became the flag.
According to Annin, "It
(the flag) remains one of the
most popular organizational
flags flown in the United
States, selling in the tens of
thousands every year. Annin
& Co. remains an officially
sanctioned supplier of the
POW/MIA flag to the Federal
Government"
It's the only standard other
than the Stars and Stripes
that has ever flown over the
White House, and it is the
only one ever displayed in
the Capitol Rotunda.
Coincidentally, Annin &
Co. has long had a flag fac-
tory in Verona, N.J., where I
grew up, Knowing now what
great work they've done;, "
espjectalry on the'OPOW/MA
flag, I offer a belated but sin-
cere salute.

Always 'an extra chair' at dinner table at the Harwood house


by KATHY NICOLETTI
COLUMNIST

Jacksonville Beach resident
Beth Harwood prepares a fami-
ly dinner every night and says
there is always "an extra chair"
at her dinner table.
She said she always cooks "big meals" for her
husband, Al, their two youngest daughters,
and for any other family members or friends
who might join them.
Harwood was born in Wisconsin and grew
up in England where her father was a banking
executive. The oldest of five girls, she always
liked to help her mother cook.
Family vacations throughout Europe gave
Harwood the opportunity to experience differ-
ent cooking styles and ingredients.
Harwood said it was "always fun" to go
shopping with her mother for the local meats,
produce, breads, oils, and seasonings available
in the countries they visited.
Following their vacations, they always
brought some of the local food back with them
and tried to duplicate dishes they had enjoyed.
Harwood has shared her enthusiasm for
good food with her daughters and extended
family. Meal times find most of the family in
Harwood's large kitchen talking and helping
with the meals.
"We are a big eating family. It keeps us all
really busy," she said.
Harwood's oldest daughter, Cory Morrison,
said that she can remember helping her moth-
er make brownies when she was only three
years old.


Harwood said it's easy and
_ )fun to have very young chil-
dren start out in the kitchen by
helping bake and decorate
cookies. As they get older,, she
'COOKS added, it's also a great way to
spend time with them and
'have easy-going conversations
that help "you get to know your children a lot
better."
For her two youngest daughters, both stu-
dents at Foundation Academy, Harwood likes
to have something that smells good baking in
the oven when they come home from school.
Grandma Kubec's Cheesecake is a family
recipe from Harwood's maternal grandmother.
Harwood folds fresh blueberries, in season
now, into the sour cream topping for this deli-
cious cheesecake.
Her Chocolate Mint Cake won a first-place
award in the Chocolate Cake category at Beach
United Methodist Church's baking competition
last month. Harwood was just as enthusiastic
about having served as a judge for the compe-
tition the previous year as she was for winning
one of the awards this year.
Fluffy Peppermint Frosting is spread between
the chocolate cake layers and rich Chocolate
Ganache finishes the top and sides of her
Chocolate Mint Cake. The cake tastes "like a
York Peppermint Patty," she said.
Growing up, Harwood said she learned about
entertaining by watching her mother's dinner
parties. Lists, schedules, and menus taped to

and cilantro are in the mari-
nade with the parsley nicely
balancing the flavor of the
cilantro. The cream cheese
absorbs much of the marinade
and the finished appetizer is
delicious spread on crackers,
said Harwood.

The following recipes are from
Beth Harwood.

Garcia elated after Players victory


By DAVID ROSENBLUM
SPORTS WRITER
All Paul Goydos had to do
was the same thing he'd done
about 20 minutes earlier. That
is, land his ball on the 17th
green at TPC Sawgrass.
Didn't happen.
Fifteen minutes earlier, Sergio
Garcia was expected to do
something he always seems to
do: Miss a putt when it matters
most.
Didn't happen.
Garcia sank his seven-foot
par putt at 18 to finish The
Players Championship at 5-
under-par, then waited to see
what Goydos, then at 6-under,
would do in the group behind.
Goydos' tee shot went to the
right of the fairway and caught
a bad lie in the rough, forcing
him to lay-up rather that go for
the green. Goydos settled for a
bogey that set up a playoff with
Garcia on perhaps one of the
most well-know holes in all of
golf, the infamous Island
Green.
In the playoff, Goydos tried
to reenact the same shot he
took on 17 during regulation
but wound up in the water, just
short of the green. Garcia then
took his shot and landed on
the green. A good roll put the
Spaniard's ball within five feet
of the cup, setting up his first
win at Sawgrass.
"I got beat by three," Goydos
said of the final hole, the first
playoff experience of his career.
"It was obviously the same as
we had it before. I hit the same
club. I did hit as good of a shot
from a solid standpoint. I tried
to do the exact same thing, but
the wind stood it up a little.
"I really hit a good shot there
on hole 71, and I hit not quite
as good a shot on hole 73."
As Garcia watched Goydos'
ball hit the water, there was no
celebration; he still had his
turn at 17 in the pressure-
packed atmosphere of a Players
playoff.
"I could still feel it because I
could do exactly the same
thing," Garcia said when asked
if he felt any pressure before
hitting the shot. "I was just
praying that I didn't get any
kind of weird gusts or wind or
anything like that. I knew what
shot I wanted to hit. I was
thinking 'if I manage to make
3, I should win this thing.' "

Biggest win of career
Sunday's victory gave Garcia
the most significant title of his
career, on one of the 28-year-
old's favorite courses.
In nine starts at The Players,
Garcia has two top-10 finishes,
including last year's runner-up
finish to Phil Mickelson, in
which the Spaniard carded a
final round 66. Garcia also shot

Sergio Garcia reacts after his par-saving putt on the 18th hole Sunday during the final round of The Players Championship. Paul
Goydos later bogeyed the hole, to finish at 5-under along with Garcia. That forced a sudden-death playoff beginning at No. 17
where Garcia parred and Goydos bogeyed, allowing the Spaniard to wrap up the 2008 title.


a 66 in the opening round of
this year's tournament.
With the win, Garcia
becomes the first European to
win at Sawgrass since Sandy
Lyle in 1987. Lyle's win was
also the last time a playoff
decided The Players.
"It's been a long time since a
European won here," Garcia
said. "I'm happy to be the one
this time. I guess I'll find out
when I get back home how big
it is. It's huge for me and I'm


sure it will be huge for every-
body back home."
Though Garcia came out on
tip, credit must be given to
Goydos who played possibly
the best tournament of his 16-
year career on a difficult course
under adverse conditions.
Following the first round, in
which unusually good weather
for The Players was the key to
plenty of low scores, winds
picked up over the next three
rounds with gusts up to 35-40


mph, making an already diffi-
cult course much tougher to
master. And higher scores
reflected that
"Tough day," Goydos said.
"I'm standing on the driving
range warming up and there
were times where you can't
swing. It was too windy. I
thought whoever finished
under par was going to win.
Sergio (71) and (Jeff) Quinney
(70) both shot under par in the
second-to-last group. You've


got to tip your hat to that.
That's impressive."

Wind wreaks havoc
The blustery conditions pro-
vided problems for many of the
best players in the world. Local
golfers Vijay Singh and Fred
Funk failed to make the cut and
Jim Furyk finished tied for
27th-place.
Former Players champ Justin
Leonard missed the cut, as did
the fourth-ranked player in the


world, Steve Stricker and sev-
enth-ranked K.J. Choi.
"I think it was close to bor-
derline, a little unfair when
you're hitting great shots and
weren't rewarded," said 2006
Players champion Stephen
Ames. "There were a couple of
instances where we all had to
back off because the wind just
started to gust. We had to wait
for it."
Ames shot a final round 72
and finished fifth this year.
Quinney, who was paired
with Garcia during the final
round, threatened to make it a
three-man playoff, but after
missing the green on 18, settled
for a bogey that dropped him a
shot behind the leader. He
would go on to finish third.
"I wanted to give'myself a
putt," Quinney said of the 18th
hole. "I had no shot out of the
bunker. I managed my game
really well. I wasn't getting too
aggressive. I felt in complete
control. I was kind of in the
zone all day."
Briny Baird, on his birthday,
also made a charge in the final
round, but came up short.
Baird was in third most of the
final round until No. 15, where
his tee shot landed in a fairway
bunker and his second shot
landed in a green-side bunker.
Baird finished the hole with a
bogey and never worked back
into the top of the leaderboard,
finishing fourth over all.
"I played solid all day," Baird
said. "I hit a lot of good shots,
got off to the kind of start you
want to get off to. I kept telling
myself, 'Hang in there, hang in
there. Maybe this is destiny to
win The Players Champio-
nship on . . . your birthday.' I
gave it pretty much everything
I had out there."
Last year's champion Phil
Mickelson was also' near the top
of the leaderboard most of the
week, but a final-round 78 left
Lefty in a tie for 21st.
"It was a tough day today,"
Mickelson said. "I didn't get off
to a great start today. But some
guys shot under par. Some guys
shot some great rounds. It was
out there. You could still score,
even as tough as it was."
Garcia was the one who
would be alone on top at the
end of it all, shooting one of
those "great" rounds against
some of the best golfers in the
world, amidst some of the
toughest conditions and on
one of the toughest courses in
the world.
Afterward, Garcia jokingly
"thanked" Tiger Woods, for
missing his first Players due to
recovery time for knee surgery
Woods had last month.
"I want to thank Tiger for not
being here," Garcia said. "That
always makes things a little bit
easier."


Goydos wins fans with humor, performance


By ROBERT DeANGELO
SPORTS EDITOR
Self-described journeyman
Paul Goydos chose his club,
checked the wind, took a deep
breath, lashed a controlled
swing and saw his ball bounce
off the surface then splash into
the water surrounding infa-
mous No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass.
That was during Thursday's
opening round of The Players
Championship, and for those
predisposed to foreshadowing,
was a sign of things to come.
Just three days later, Goydos
found himself in the same sit-
uation on the tee box at 17,
only this time with The
Players title on the line as he
and Sergio Garcia entered a
sudden-death playoff.
Goydos again checked the
wind, selected a club, fixed his
stare at the flag stick and
uncorked a three-quarter swing
that lofted his ball toward the
island green. Another splash
and a dream dashed.
Garcia followed with a
splendid tee shot that not only
found land, but rolled to with-
in four feet of the cup. The
Spaniard parred the hole to
win his first Players title.
The 43-year-old Goydos was
as magnanimous in defeat as
he'd been jovial a day earlier
in granting interviews to
everyone who sought the 54-
hole leader.
"For me to complain to Pete
Dye now would be as sour
grapes as you could drop,"
Goydos told reporters on


Sunday. "The hole was
designed to do exactly what it
did. It just got me instead of
somebody else."
It was a breakthrough week
for Goydos. While he'd won
two tournaments in 15 years
on the PGA Tour (Bay Hill
Invitational in 1996 and last
year's Sony Open in Hawaii)
only the most ardent golf fan
knew of the Long Beach,
California native.
That changed as he climbed
to the top of The Players
leaderboard last weekend.
Goydos was candid and funny
during interviews and his story
of having worked as an inner-
city substitute teacher in Long
Beach before earning his Tour
card resonated with casual
fans.
Some examples of his can-
dor and humor: Asked what
it's like to have the lead with
one hole th play, Goydos
responded, "The key is to have
the lead with no holes to go."
About losing the playoff, his
first ever, to Garcia: "I've got
to think 0-1 is a better playoff
record than 0-0, right? Am I
wrong here?"
On becoming the fan-
favorite as those at Sawgrass
rooted for the underdog: "In a
sense, from a crowd stand-
point, I got to be Tiger Woods
for a day. That's from a crowd
standpoint, not from a talent
standpoint."
Asked by NBC's Bob Costas
how he slept Saturday night
with the 54-hole Players lead,
Goydos shrugged and said,


' ^ * -- ' J '-" -. - '"I' " ': "" "" '-".

Paul Goydos eyes the ball as he hits from a sand trap at the third hole during Sunday's final round of The Players Championship.
Goydos finished as runner-up to champion Sergio Garcia after hitting into the water on the first sudden-death playoff hole.


"On my back."
Beyond the jokes, however,
there have been some darker
clouds in Goydos' past. He
went through a divorce several
years ago, earning custody of
his kids and taking a year off
from the Tour because he
wanted to be with them every
day. He's had hip surgery, is


currently playing with persist-
ent plantar fasciitis, and over-
came an arthritic-type condi-
tion in his hands that threat-
ened his pro career.
But his performance at The
Players undoubtedly earned
Goydos a fresh batch of fans.
This year's tournament might
be remembered as the one that


got away from a 43-year-old
journeyman, but Goydos does-
n't see it that way.
"This is why we play, to
have a chance today," he said.
"I'm reasonably pleased with
how I played again, 2 over par
after three and played the last
15 holes on a very tough day
even par, and I felt like I got


beat. Instead of the shot Sergio
hit in the playoff, people may
talk about how Goydos hit it
in the water, blah, blah, blah,
but Sergio hit it two feet. I got
beat; that's golf."
"I played good golf, and as
people have found out, that
doesn't mean win, unfortu-
nately. You can't control it."

FISHING




Wind plays havoc with the local fishing scene


tough wind last week
out of the west played
havoc with the fishing.
Last Sunday the whiting were
strong on the Jacksonville
Beach Pier. Anglers reported
occasional catches of drum,
trout and pompano.
The party boats made suc-
cessful trips on Tuesday and
Saturday and continue to do
quite well on the snapper and
amberjack with good catches
of stringer fish to go with
them.
Last Tuesday, anglers on the
Mayport Princess accounted
for 29 snapper, 15 amberjack
and a great catch of one- to
two-pound beeliners.
I " .l~

Saturday was also a produc-
tive day. There were 31 snap-
per to 16 pounds, four
grouper to 13 pounds and
dozens of beeliners and sea

bass to clean.
Anglers on the King
Neptune were loading their
cameras on Saturday after-
noon on the way in. They
caught 20 snapper, 10 amber-
jack, a 17-pound grouper and
lots of beeliners and sea bass.
Capt. Fred Bridges and his
wife Judy fished the bottom
at D.R. last Monday and after
releasing several dozen short
snapper, trolled for a while
and picked up a pair of kings
and a dolphin. They used
cigar minnows for bait.
Willie Ulmer and Louise
Carson fished the Naval Air
Station river bank last
Saturday with live shrimp and
caught five drum, six reds and
a catfish.
Mike Tandarich had a few
hours to kill last Sunday so he
took a few live shrimp to the
Sherman Creek Bridge and
caught four trout.
Butch Garvin and Rusty
Borthwick fished Hanna Park
three days in a row last week
with crickets and caught 25
bream and shell crackers on
each trip.,
Capt. David King and Matt
Hamilton teamed up in the
river last week and used live
shrimp under floats to catch
35 trout from Matt's
Pathfinder.
Larry "Fishman". Finch and
his wife Murphy worked the
surf at Ft. George for 24 pom-
pano. Then on Tuesday, Chip
Avery used sand fleas and
clams in the same area and
caught his limit of pompano
and some big whiting.
Capt. William Goodling,
Chris Rooney, Chris
Lambertson and Ron May
fished the party grounds last
Wednesday from the Venus
Baby and caught two 20-
pound dolphin, a 30-pound
grouper and several dozen
beeliners, pinkies and triggers.
Capt. Chris Rooney from
his Driftin' and Dreamin' last
Saturday with William
Goodling and friends Willie
and Sam brought home eight
snapper, a kingfish and a
cooler full of sea bass and
beeliners. All were caught at
P.M. and P.G.

OPINION



Sudden-death playoff brings excitement to Players


You probably know the
old saying, "When the
cat's away, the mice will
play."
Change that to; "When
Tiger's away, everyone else gets
a chance to play," and you get
an idea of what The Players
Championship of 2008 was all
about.
When golf's No. 1 threat of
winning everything had to
cancel his annual visit to
Ponte Vedra Beach following
knee surgery after last month's
Masters, it left the gate open
for the likes of Paul Goydos,
Kenny Perry, Sergio Garcia,
Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples
(yes, he's still living), Anthony
Kim and many other souls
who happened to be in the
neighborhood. Including
defending champion Phil
Mickelson.
This edition of The Players
will go down as the most
democratic (small "d") of them
all. It was as wide open as a
cracked safe.
But in recent years when we
could depend on a Craig Perks
or Stephen Ames suddenly vol-
unteering to become the win-
ner, these golfers never seemed
able to fill in for Tiger. Maybe
they were afraid the media
wouldn't like it.
This will go down as the
year of the Great Experiment.
In the old days that was what
they called the Volstead Act -
which became known as pro-
hibition. That's when bottles
were kept discreetly under the
table at big dinners and bath-
tubs were used at home at
times other than Saturday
nights. Maybe home brew or
gin was different, but they say
you could still get cockeyed if
you drank enough of it.
The Players Championship,


REX EDMONDSON
PRESS BOX

as most everyone knows by
now, was moved from the
month of March, where it was
established way back in 1977,
to May, a month that the PGA,
local officials and the media
insisted held the promise of
such great weather it would
make Paradise seem like the
Johnstown Flood.
It never rains in May, or
brings Earth quakes, fires, hail
or famine, they all said.
Well, they got lucky.
Although we were warned a
tornado was on the way here,
the weather finally cleared up.
The ghost of Cliff Roberts
must have intervened.
Does this mean'that next
year's Players will remain in
May, to the delight of heat-
seekers?
The Players tourney this year
was so dull all week then
turned out to be an overtime
thriller when Sergio Garcia
outgunned Paul Goydos for all
the marbles. "Marbles" mean-

17th -while Goydos dumped
his effort into the drink. Had
to be the most expensive
swing of Goydos' long career.
It was only fitting that
Garcia should finally win The
Players. He had flirted with
such a happy ending so long a
generation of golf fans here
grew up thinking it was
against the law for him to win.
Goydos, who has appeared
here so often without fanfare
or real compensation, deserved
better. When interviewed, he
was congratulated for a fine
tournament and it was true, he
had played well. The 43-year-
old was gracious, but how do
you lose $700,000 without
bawling?
Losers are still losers no mat-
ter. how good they are.
But the whole cast Sunday
deserved acclaim for winning
the battle against the wind,
which threatened to blow
everybody to kingdom come.
Goydos had a stiff upper lip
despite his calamity. He's used
to losing here. He's been at the
TPC so often he should be
given honorary citizenship in
Ponte Vedra.
Once again 'the defending
champ, this time it was Phil
Mickelson, failed to keep his
title. That's a tradition at The
Players that goes back as long
as the tournament.
Fate shines on a man once
in a while here, but not in suc-
cessive years.
So the "experiment" of
March to May succeeded. If

Clients of Castro Mortgage find knowledge

and experience that works to make dreams

reality and problems history.


\\'hen Nou see a man whose
hobb\ is carerullv building minia-
rure historic ships to perfection, you
have a man with great patience. It is
a valuable quality in the person you .
want guiding you through the deci-
sion involed in securing a mort-,, i
gage. That man is Bob Castro, the
owner, licensed mortgage broker
and longtime Beaches resource of .
Castro Mortgage, 1112 Third Street .
in Neptune Beach.
SWith over 45 years in the banking
and mortgage industry, Bob is an
awesome resource, and he is more
than willing to invest the time, and
patience, in consultation with those
who come to him for advice about
financing, whatever the need.
Helen Jason, a licensed mortgage
broker working with Castro
Mortgage, gives the example of
those first-time home buyers who
come in eager to get financing and i :
move into their dream home.
"We sit down and ask questions -
more questions than anyone else
will ask," she says. "We want you to
be truthful with yourself because we
want to see that you do not over-
buy or over-commit. We invest time
in the individual." Whether you
meet with Bob or Helen or Paul
McLaughlin, the other licensed
mortgage broker on the staff, you There are many familiar f
will receive the benefit of their con- Castro, and Moses, to lic
sultation as a.team working to bring
you the best available choices and advice for your situation in
life.
"I will tell you the truth, whether you like it or not, ".Bob
adds. Sometimes that truth means working out what Bob calls
the "road map" for you. It outlines what you can and should
do now and in the weeks and months ahead to get youo o the
point where you can buy that dream house. "No one wants to
hear the word 'no', but when we invest time working out the
'road map' we find that our clients listen and they come back
and thank me for the 'no.'"
Bob and Helen believe in the value of home ownership. "In
my 45 years in the credit industry I know that people have
more commitment to life when they own a home. It is
important throughout your life, and you realize it dramati-
cally at retirement." Helen especially enjoys taking the jour-
ney with the first-time homeowner. "It's such a personal
thing with them; it's like working with my own son or daugh-
ter."
Bob Castro has 36 years of business invested here at the
Beach and he has a passion for his industry and empathy for
peoplee at all stages of life. The mortgage broker is one who
rcani be your confidant and advisor for life. Bob has been there
to develop that "road map" for the first-time home buyer and
he has been there when clients come back to solve financial
situations later in. their life.
Refinancing is an important financial tool throughout life,
as Bob and Helen point out. "I see a lifelong program of con-
serving your equity and using it wisely." Bob says... It is a
resource for that second home, the additions, pool or the
remodeling projects that are a part of your dream. It is also
there to help with situations life presents such as the illness
or death of a spouse, a divorce or other events fhat effect ad
change of lifestyle. . :!: .-.: , ,. '
"You can tap into this equity to help put in a needed ramp


faces on the Castro Mortgage team from Jeanne and Bob
ensed brokers Helen'Jason and Paul McLaughlin.
or other facilities required to meet sudden health needs," Bob
says. A reverse mortgage is often the answer for seniors who
receive Castro Mortgage's help in making sound decisions for
more comfortable retirement years. "Home ownership is a
base for much of your security and a source for help later in
life or in crisis situations. You will find that the team mem-
bers at Castro Mortgage are advocates of developing equity.
Helen is an example of the relationship that can develop
between clients of Castro Mortgage and this outstanding bro-
ker. She was first a customer, 18 years ago, who became fas-
cinated with the business through the time and patience Bob
gave to her questions and decisions. "It's why I am here
now," she explains. Retiring from the advertising and mar-
keting field, she followed her passion and became a licensed
mortgage broker and Bob's associate, sharing a philosophy of
finding solutions for people with honesty and empathy.
It is also important to recognize the differences when you
are working with mortgage brokers at Castro Mortgage.
When you go to a bank ydu receive the one menu of financ-
ing that they provide and the one philosophy of that lender...
When you work with the brokers at Castro, you receive the
benefit of lots of menus from lots of resources that this expe-
rienced team can bring to the table for your needs.
"Bob's rich knowledge of the industry, experience in ana-
lyzing an individual's financial position and respect from the
lenders continues to allow us to deliver on even some of the
toughest residential and commercial mortgage deals," Helen
says. "It is why even banks refer their customers to him"
At Castro Mortgage, they say: "We look at 'tough deals' as a
challenge, not an impossibility!" That's an important feature
any time, but especially good to know if you are seeking
financing or refinancing at this particular time. You have a
friend here at the Beach. Everyone knows Bob Castro. Maybe
it is time that you get to know him too. Call 904-249-7975

Jeff Quinney blasts from a greenside bunker at No. 18 in the Players' final round Sunday. For'a
time, it appeared Quinney was headed for a playoff with Sergio Garcia and Paul Goydos, but a
bogey on the 72nd hole dropped him a shot behind the Igaders. Quinney finished the tournament
at 4-under to earn third place.
