ARC, Veranda reach accord


Multiple signs

OK'd for A1A

by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
Members of the Ponte Vedra
Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) agreed this
week to allow multiple signs
on walls of the six buildings
of the Veranda complex on
State Road A1A, over the
objections of some residents.
At an ARC meeting
Wednesday, members at first
balked at the plan but relent-
ed after the Veranda develop-
er, Donis Home, and his
attorney, Isabelle Lopez, said
the signs are needed to attract
national businesses as ten-
ants.
"These people are national
tenants that want monument
signs and wall signs," Home
said, adding that he was being
penalized because he built an
attractive complex.
The multi-story buildings
on the west side of A1A just
south of PGA Tour Boulevard
have multiple tenants, but
ARC rules limit commercial
properties to one, 24-square-
foot wall sign on the build-
ing's front.
The rules, contained in the
County's Land Development
Code, specify criteria for
building colors and materials,
signs and landscaping for
commercial and multifamily
development along major
roads in Ponte Vedra Beach
and Palm Valley.
A building divided into
units for several businesses
can have one sign per busi-
ness, such as strip malls.
But Home said he didn't
want to add another strip cen-
ter along A1A.

Isabelle Lopez (left), attorney for the developer of the Veranda business complex on State Road
A1A in Ponte Vedra Beach, explains the Veranda's wall sign proposal to audience members during
the Ponte Vedra Architectural Review Committee meeting Wednesday at the Ponte Vedra Beach'
Branch Library. The plan calls for more signs than are allowed under ARC rules but fewer than are
allowed under vested rights of the PUD. Patrick McCormack, St. Johns County attorney, said that
under the plan, "everyone is less unhappy than they otherwise would be."


"If I'd done an ugly build-
ing, I could have signs," he
told ARC members.
Although the ARC's
approval was not required for
the Veranda sign plan, the
item was referred to ARC by
the St. Johns County
Commission April..29.
Chairman Tom Manuel of
Ponte Vedra Beach said he
hoped the sign issue could be
"resolved at the community
level, . . . which, of course,
would be our preference."
The requested sign plan is a
County Commission matter
because it would be a major
modification to the Sawgrass


Players Club Planned Unit
Development (PUD).
Because the Veranda has
rights under the original PUD,
it could have one sign per
business unit. But Lopez told
the ARC her client realized
the community did not want
the "checkerboard look that
would result from allowing
that many signs.
Several members of the.
standing-room-only audience
packed into the PGA Tour
Media Center of the library
spoke against the plan.
Dan MacDonald said the
same issue came before the
ARC two years ago and was


rejected.
"They [the applicants] don't
seem to understand the word
'No,' and it's time they do," he
said.
"We're not Jacksonville
Beach. We don't want to look
like Jacksonville Beach,"
Kathryn Hoza said.
Acknowledging that "the
outcome may not be what.the
community wants," Lopez
said Home had "cut it [the
sign plan] to the bone" in ask-
ing for the plan for wall and
awning signs.

Water proposal worries landscapers


Once-a-week

watering eyed

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Local irrigation and landscape
specialists say once per week
irrigation won't cut it for lawn
maintenance.
The St. Johns River Water
Management District recently
proposed new rules that would
limit most lawn irrigation to
once per week from November
through March instead of the
current twice per week
allowance, according to Theresa
Monson, the district's Senior
Communications Specialist.
The proposed rules would
apply to all lawn and landscape
irrigation, agriculture, nurseries,
golf courses and recreational
areas not regulated by a con-
sumptive use permit," according
to information provided by the
district.
Most local golf courses,
already have a consumptive use
permit with stringent limita-


tions, accord-
ing to
Monson.
But local A lot of pD
experts say are going to
that once per
week irriga- start sho'
tion for most spots and .
residential
lawns is not
enough.
"A lot of' -
people's yards Jo e H '"
are going to Iliq C
turn yellow,
start showing
dead spots and have bugs [if the
proposed rules are applied],"
said Joe Conselice, owner of
American Well and Irrigation,
Inc. in Atlantic Beach.
Most yards need 2.5 inches of
water per week for a lawn to
grow correctly, according to
Conselice, who said with once
per week watering "it's virtually
impossible to give it 2.5 inches."
According to the district's pro-
posal, irrigation would be limit-
ed to once per week from the
first Sunday in November to the
second Sunday in March before
10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. and

e bugs. Irrigation

S.i The rule
would also be

apply to
reclaimed


water and storm water, but
reclaimed water providers
would be able to apply for a spe-
cial permit to allow customers a
specified additional irrigation
day, according to district infor-
mation.
"The additional water conser-
vation provisions would
enhance water savings by
expanding the irrigation limita-
tions to include reclaimed water
and storm water," said Hal
Wilkening, the district's director
of resource management.
Twice per week irrigation
would still be allowed during


Daylight Savings Time, but irri-
gation would be limited to no
more than half an inch of water
per zone per irrigation day.

posed changes, visit www.sjr-
wmd.com/irrigation rule.
.Conselice said the proposed
plan is a "Catch 22."
"It's great for the environ-
ment, but yards are going to suf-
fer."
Larry Ridley, owner of Ridley's
Landscaping and Irrigation
which services areas in Ponte
Vedra, said "soil won't hold the
moisture for that long, especial-
ly in August," resulting in a lot
of dead grass.
"Twice per week [irrigation] is
the bare minimum," he said.
"If that's what people are left
with, they're going to want one
hell of a watering system.
You're going to have Niagara
Falls on your one day of water-
ing."
Ridley also said lawn mainte-
nance will become more diffi-
cult.

"I think that that academy
is going to fly," he said
Thursday in a telephone

School in Northwest St. Johns
County and lives in Ponte

AROUND


Mr. Nice Guys
Trustees of the Ponte Vedra
Municipal Service District
(MSD) will try another "nice"
approach to get residents to
comply with a trash law.
A "nice article" will be put
in the MSD's next newsletter
to remind residents that yard
trash is not to be put curbside
days in advance of scheduled
collection.
The MSD has already tried
sending nice letters to viola-
tors who were identified over
a multi-week sweep of the
area.
MSD Chair Al Hollon said
this week that some have
responded and asked why the
MSD is not concerned about
other issues.
The Ponte Vedra
Community Association
asked for help with the prob-
lem in order to promote
beautification in the commu-
nity, Hollon noted at the
MSD monthly meeting
Monday in the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.
Trustee Gary Jurenovich
said an article in the newslet-
ter could spell out the prob-
lem and "urge people to have
pride."
While trustees, agreed to
put an item in the next
newsletter, Hollon said ulti-
mately the problem with the
yard trash is a codes enforce-
ment issue.

MSD seats to be filled
Five of the seven seats on
the Ponte Vedra Municipal
Service District (MSD) Board
of Trustees will be up for elec-
tion this fall.
Two of the seats, 3 and 5,
have been vacant for several
months because the members
who held them moved out of
the MSD and resigned.
Those spots are to be filled
temporarily by gubernatorial,
appointments, but then must
be filled in the next election
with terms expiring in two
years when seats 3 and 5
would normally be up for
election, along with Seats 1
and 7 in 2010.
The MSD seats are typically
four-year terms.
This fall, seat 2, held by
Rob Becker, will be up for
election, but Becker may not
run again due to term limits.
.Seats 4 and 6 are also up for
' ietion, and " incumbents
IBob Reesh ' atid" ry
Jurenovich, respectively, are
eligible to run again, but
have not indicated if they
will.

Dr. of High C's performs
Italian tenor Roger
Geronimo, known as "Doctor
of the High C's," will perform
in a May 24 concert in St.
Augustine to benefit the
Michael J. Fox Parkinson's
Foundation.
The fifth annual fund-rais-
ing concert also will feature
Karen Adair, Ralph Grieco,
Cassie Conrad, The Coquina
Crossing Chorus and' Sam
Clein.
The concert will begin at 7
p.m. in the ballroom of
Coquina Crossing, a residen-
tial area off State Road 207. A
reception follows the con-
cert.
For tickets, call 797-2248,
e-mail tenore2@hotmail.com
or purchase tickets at the
door.

Writers to get tips
The world of publishing
remains a major mystery for
new writers, particularly
when it comes to getting a
non-fiction book published.
Michael Hamilton, a former
editor with one of world's the
largest publishers, advises
authors on how to get their
books published at this
month's meeting of the
Florida Writers Association
Ponte Vedra Writers Group.
The group will meet at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
Library at 10:30 a.m.
Saturday, May 24.
Hamilton was a senior edi-
tor with John Wiley & Sons,
one of the leading business
publishers in the world. He
has edited exclusively in the
non-fiction area.
Hamilton will present an
overview of all the steps
involved in preparing a book
proposal and submitting it to
a publisher for consideration.


Topics to be covered include
types of book proposals,
preparation, submission,
contract negotiation,
advances, and contacting
agents.
The meeting is open to the
public. For more informa-
tion, call Vic DiGenti at 285-
2258 or visit www.fwapon-
tevedra.blogspot.com.

Safe sitting is taught
Due to the increased level
of interest in safe babysitting
educational classes, Baptist
Medical Center Beaches is
increasing the number of Safe
Sitter classes offered through-
out the year.
The program is nationally
recognized for teaching ado-
lescent babysitters to help
children stay safe. Instruction
includes information on how
to handle a crisis, keep
charges secure, and nurture
young children.
"It is an incredible resource
for anyone who has just
begun, or wants to begin,
babysitting," said Jillian
Witemyre, Safe Sitter pro-
gram coordinator at Baptist
Beaches. "Not only is it bene-


ficial and helps protect the
safety of children, but the
course also teaches safety
skills for the babysitter."
The day-long course caters
to 11- to 13-year-olds who
emerge as more confident,
responsible and compassion-
ate teens and adults. The
enrollment cost for the one-
day course is $40 and
includes take-home educa-
tional materials and a snack.
The next class is scheduled
for Saturday, June 7. If you or
someone you know is inter-
ested in enrolling in a Safe
Sitter course, call Baptist
Health's CARE Line at
904.202.CARE (2273).

Using tombstones
for genealogy
Jon Ferguson, Past-
President of the Southern
Genealogist Exchange
Society, will be at the Beaches
Museum & History Center on
May 22 to discuss genealogy
and especially the use of
tombstone and cemetery
information.
"Tombstones and Beyond:
Sources for Death Dates" will
be a discussion about the dif-
ficulties of finding tomb-
stones, the misinformation,
and correct information they
may provide.
Ferguson came from a large
family. His mother was one
of 16 children, while his
father was one of 12. As a
child he wrote it all down -


thus beginning his own
genealogical research. He
was not able to delve into his
family tree again until after
he retired from the U.S. Small
Business Administration in
1988. At that time he pur-
chased a computer and
became obsessed in his fami-
ly history. His collections of
lineage records include
77,000 names.
Currently, he works on a
committee that is transcrib-
ing the burial records at
Evergreen Cemetery. He says
he has always loved cemeter-
ies, having grown up only
two blocks from one. But
now he realizes how much
information is really avail-
able from tombstones, burial
records, and obituaries. That
has become his favorite
source of genealogical data.
Stiff drinks will be served at
6:30 p.m. with the discussion
commencing at 7 p.m.

Keepers of the code say OK to 6 signs on A1A

front A1A, the plan called for
three, 24-foot-square wall
signs facing A1A on two of
the buildings and two signs
facing A1A on the third build-
ing.
"We are keepers of the code
here," said ARC chair Mike
Koppenhafer, who, like other
members, suggested the appli-
cant form a new sign plan,
one that would include wall,
monument and directional
signs.
But Lopez said her client
has spent much time and
money creating the plan, and
she would not advise him to
reopen the issue of the five
existing monument signs.
"There's just a lot of signs,"
Koppenhafer said, noting that
the plan called for a total of
45 signs for the six buildings.
Noting that the ARC previ-
ously had not objected to an
anchor tenant having a sign
larger than 24 square feet,
Koppenhafer suggested one
wall sign along A1A for each
of the three buildings
fronting A1A. Other tenants
could put their business
names on the monument
signs, he said.
"My recommendation is,
somebody make a motion one
way or another," urged Jack

ing I would love college teach-
ing," Kehoe said in a telephone
interview this week.
She did post-doctoral work
at Eastern Michigan University,
moved to Florida and was an
assistant professor at
Jacksonville University for five
and a half years, she said.
After being tenured, she said,
she left JU and for about four
years did full-time research at
the Mayo Clinic, looking at
neurodegenerative diseases
such as Parkinson's, she said.
She continues to do part-
time work in the Mayo labora-
tory, although in an adminis-
trative capacity, she said.
She taught at Nease from
2004 to 2006, when both
daughters were attending the
school- -:. therrn-;switchedto to:


Bartram Trail, where her
younger daughter, Molly
Manning, was star pitcher on
.the Bartram softball team.
The Bears won over Venice
in the Class 5A state softball
final May 8.
Kehoe said when she heard
about the Ponte Vedra High
biotech academy, she jumped
at the chance to be its director.
"This is really my field, and
I'm really excited," she said.
Although the academy will
prepare students for jobs - a
certificate of completion could
lead to a laboratory job, Kehoe
said - "we're looking to make
it more a a pre-med, pre-med-
ical research" program, she
said.
Biotechiology is "a wonder-
ful way to improve" things in
the environment, she said.
SFor example, in a workshop


determining whether certain
foods were genetically altered,
she said, she found that the
corn used in Doritos had been
'altered to resist the weed-killer
Roundup. '
That's good for those grow-
ing corn, she said, but if the
altered gene "gets into the
wild, then Roundup won't
work," she said.
"It will be kind of interesting
to introduce high school stu-
dents to this," she said. "I think
they will find it fun."
The academy will include a
lot of hands-on learning, she
said. Although teachers will
follow an approved curricu-
lum, "I supplement a lot," she
said. "I don't teach book. I
teach topics."
Speziale said Kehoe "has a
familiarity with the Mayo,"
which may eventually partner


with Ponte Vedra High for
biotechnology internships.
And, he, said, "She makes it
exciting."
To be admitted to the
biotechnology academy, stu-
dents had to fill out an appli-
cation.
"We wanted them to have
had algebra I, and obviously
we wanted kids who had good
attendance and good grades,"
Speziale said.
"And We did check their
essays" to determine real inter-
est in the subject matter, he
said.
Ponte Vedra High, being
built south of Nocatee Parkway
about one mile west of the
Intracoastal Waterway, opens
to students Aug. 22.

AB woman crowned America's Top Model


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Whitney Thompson, daugh-
ter of Atlantic Beach Police
Chief David Thompson, was
crowned America's Next Top
Model this week.
"It feels amazing. This is all
I've ever wanted since I was a
little girl," said Thompson,
who started modeling at 15
and has been on the cover of
Jacksonville magazine three
times.
Tyra Banks, a supermodel
and host of the national televi-
sion show, said Thompson was
the "first girl with some booty"
to capture the win and the
coveted $100,000 contract
with Cover Girl Cosmetics.
Thompson said her first
place finish was not only a per-
sonal triumph but a victory
for all full-figured women who
feel they are stifled by their
size.
"There were definitely times
I looked in the mirror or at
other girls and thought I am
not like them," she said. "But I
am here because I feel good
about myself. I want girls to
look up to me and know that if
I can do it, why can't they?"
Thompson's parents watch
Wednesday's final episode
with the children at the
Donner Park Community
Center in Atlantic Beach,
where their daughter often
volunteered.
"We debated on what to do
for the last show and then
thought to come here and
watch it with the kids," said
Jeanine Thompson, adding
that it has been "kind of surre-
al" to watch her daughter on
the show.
The walls of the Donner Park
Community Center were
decked with glittering posters
in support of Whitney as chil-
dren and family gathered to
watch her final strut down the
runway.
"We have a special love for
her," said Gail Baker, the cen-
ter's activities director and
Whitney's self-described "sec-
ond mom.
"Whitney always came and
participated in things in the
neighborhood."
Jeanine Thompson is confi-
dent that her daughter is well-
grounded and will remain
"true to who she is."
Instead of asking friends to


Whitney Thompson

bring a gift to her 16th birth-
day party, the former president
of her Fletcher High School
chess club requested guests
donate school supplies to the
center, Baker said.
"I'm extremely proud. I
think she's a great role model
for girls today," Jeanine said.

"She knows who she is [and]
she's kind and loving."
Also proud of Thompson's
accomplishments is Tiger of
Tiger Studios in Atlantic Beach
who handled all of the model's
local bookings.
"What can I say? I'm really
proud of her," she said
Thursday. "We had a party
here .[Wednesday night] and
we are all supporting her."
Having started herself on the
opposite side of the camera
lens, Tiger is familiar with the
perks and pitfalls of the indus-
try. Her goal when shepherd-
ing young clients like
Thompson into the industry is
to prepare them for the biting
truth behind the glitz and
glamour.
"My goal is to get their feet
wet here and expose them to
what it is like to work then get
them out of here," she said.
Thompson first came to
Tiger three years ago as a fresh-
faced high school student with
a few high profile jobs already
under her belt.
She was up to the challenge,
Tiger said, but unhappy with


the physical requirements that
were often asked of her during
a casting call.
"There is no denying that
she is beautiful. She represents
well on film and she was get-
ting booked but clients were
always calling back to com-
plain about her weight," she
said. "They were always like 'if
we can just get those hips
smaller'. They brought her in
every week to measure and
weigh her. When she came to
me she was very unhappy."
Thompson is a size 8, while
most top models are reported-
ly size 0-2.
Until this season of Top
Model, the panel of judges on
the show often chastised
healthy girls for being too
large to compete in an indus-
try that celebrates a loose-fit-
ting sample size 2.
"Whitney is not skin and
bones. She is a woman with
real curves," Tiger said.
"There is a lot of craziness in
the industry. As long as she is
managed and handled well
she will be fine," she said. "It's
all about how you are raised."


Lawns are well loved
P RULES, from A-1
causes tire tracks and divots [when it is mowed,]" he said.
"People are very attached to their lawns, like they are their pets.
They're not just going to let them go."
Several public workshops will be held to provide information
about the proposed rule amendments and to gather public input,
according to Monson.
The local public workshop will be held July 1 at 10 a.m. at the
Department of Environmental Protection, 7825 Baymeadows Way,
rooms A and B, in Jacksonville.

COULD YOUR CHILD BE AT RISK
Your child may have 20/20 eyesight
but 010 vision. The difference is critical.
* n Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see.
Vision is the ability to identify, interpret.
comprehend, and act on what is seen.
Routine vision tests performed by school
personnel or by most eye care professionals
measure eyesight. They do not include
S the kinds of testing that can find visually
- related learning problems.
Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat
vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
* Unable to sit still: cannot stay on task for any
length of time.
* Very clumsy; poor eye-hand coordination.
* Does written work very slowly: often fails to
complete a task.
Sflas difficulty copying visual material;
constantly kp)ks up and down.
* Moves entire head instead of eyes when
reading.
* Reversals-for example confusing the words
"was and saw" or letters "b and d".
* Is.disorganized and frustrated when studying
visual information.
* Makes frequent, "careless" errors.
If your son or daughter, age 7-18, has one or more of these behaviors, call
246-1952 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems.
It could be the most important phone call you will make during his/her school years.

The Leader's Opinion

Don't give away water

Plans are in the works to allow residents to water their
lawns only once a week. Workshops are planned and
those concerned about the potential impact of the water-
ing restrictions will have the chance to be heard.
Such limitations are needed, we're told, because of lim-
ited water resources.
Perhaps.
It is harder to make that case, however, when one con-
siders that the same water management authorities are
willing to countenance diverting thousands of gallons a
day of river water to already dry Central Florida.
If water, is to be rationed here, because of supply con-
cers, simple logic should make it clear we have no busi-
ness diverting or giving away such a valuable - and
apparently limited - resource.
Don't take local water away with one government fiat
while issuing another fiat that may cost us our green sur-
roundings. If water is limited here, we have no business
giving it away.

Top model- and family due kudos
Atlantic Beach's own Whitney Thompson was named
America's Next Top Model this week, emerging victorious
from weeks of competition in New York and Rome.
In a nationally-televised show, she was accorded a
$100,000 contract with a leading agency, the cover of
Seventeen magazine and several other prizes likely to
cement her career in the pantheon of top models.
Dubbed a plus-size model in a world of uber-thin mod-
els, Whitney, a Fletcher grad, made it clear she is proud of
her curves as a size 8 and said afterward she hopes other
girls learn to like themselves as they are. She deserves
kudos for her candor.
Kudos are also due her parents, her father is Atlantic
Beach Police Chief David Thompson and her mother is
Jeanine Thompson. They elected to watch the results show
at the Donner Center, on the west side of Atlantic Beach,
-surrounded by young girls from the neighborhood.
Their willingness to share a celebratory moment in their
-family withthe neighborhood in such a quiet manner is
4 generous gesture that speaks volufies about the family's
character and commitment to the community.
Congratulations to Whitney and her family.

State must secure education fur


To the editor:
In April 2008, the U.S.
Census Bureau released a
report on public education K-
12 funding by states for the
2005-06 school year. This was
an excellent year for funding
increases in Florida with an
8% overall increase. Not sur-
prisingly, Florida came in 37th
place in per pupil funding
among the 50 states.
-7However, what was new
-iformrationrwas- the analysis
of overall. funding for educa-
tion counting federal, state,
and local sources of revenue
adjusted according to income.
Florida was in last place
among the 50 states, with
only The District of Columbia
providing lower funding. This
is significant in that this sta-
tistic gives a more equitable
basis of comparing funding
on an "ability to pay." Also dis-
turbing was how Florida com-
pared in funding K-12 educa-
tion with other southern
states that are typically "low
tax" states:
Per $1,000 of Income

Sunshine is sometimes missing


Sunshine in the Sunshine
State, is that too much to ask?
With all these private meet-
ings, is the council up to the
task?
In Jacksonville Beach, our
Charter and the Florida
Sunshine Law guarantee public
participation in government.
The intent of the Sunshine Law
is to promote open govern-
ment, where, according to the
Sunshine Manual, "the entire
decision-making process is to be
conducted in full public view."
The recent Jax Beach City
Council workshop was wonder-
ful. It was refreshing to hear the
council 'speak openly and
Extensively on so many current
Sand upcoming issues. I wish
they would hold a workshop
before each Council meeting.
The only thing missing was
public comment and participa-
tion. Council workshops are
special meetings of the council
that, according to Jax Beach
policy, "are held at the Mayor's
request, ... to filly discuss and..
Become informed on an issue."
Unfortunately the same policy
goes on to state: "Although all
workshops are open to the pub-
lic, the public does not normal-
ly participate in the workshop
sessions.'
In contrast, the- Florida
Attorney General said in an
informal advisory legal opin-
ion: "I am of the opinion that a
workshop meeting of the city
commission of the City of St.
Augustine Beach at which offi-
cial business is discussed is sub-
ject to the Sunshine Law and
should provide the opportunity
for. public input." (Inf. Op. to
David G. Conn, May 7, 1987)
Our Charter, essentially our
Constitution, also requires pub-
lic participation at workshops.
Section 6 of our Charter states:
"The rules of the council shall
provide that the public shall
have a reasonable_ opportunity'
to be heard at any such meet-
irigs of the council or its com-
mittees in regard to any matter
considered threatt"
'Our lack of open government
in Jax Beach is evident in other
areas. Our Charter requires "All
meetings of the council and of
committees thereof shall be
open to 'the public and con-
ducted in accordance with state
law and the rules of the coun-
cil." The City has had many
"shade" meetings closed to the
public. These meetings were


DAVID SMITH
COLUMNIST


conducted in conjunction with
the lawsuits regarding the 35-ft
height amendment and, most
recently, regarding police
salaries fpr the next two years.
Arguably, state'law allows these
specific types of meetings to be
closed to the public. However it
seems clear to me that our
Charter preempts state law in
these cases, clearly stating "all
meetings are to be open to the
public and conducted in accor-
dance with state law" not that
all meetings are to'be open'to
the public or conducted in
accordance with state law.
The regular private meetings
between Mr. Forbes, our City
Manager, and each of the indi-
vidual council also appear to
violate the Sunshine Law and
our Charter. The public is not
allowed, no meeting notices are
published, and no minutes are
kept.
The Sunshine law would
allow these meetings if our
Charter did not provide that
Mr. Forbes has a seat on the
Council. Section 32 of our
Charter specifies that "The cify
manager and such other-officers
of the city as may be designated
by vote of the council, shall be
entitled to seats in the council,
but shall have no vote therein."
In an Attorney General
Opinion (AGO 2005-18) writ-
ten by Charlie Crist, he asserts
the Sunshine Law applies to
voting and nonvoting members
of a public body stating "it is
my opinion that meetings
between a voting member ...
[and] a member of the council
[who serves] in an ex officio,
non-voting capacity, are subject
to the provisions of section
286.011, Florida Statutes, the
Government in the Sunshine
Law. Thus, the requirements of
the Sunshine Law, i.e., notice,


public accessibility and written
minutes, apply to any meeting
where two or more members of
the council discuss matters on
which the board may foresee-
ably take action."
According to AGO 74-47, a
city manager that is not a mem-
ber of the city* council may
meet individually with mem-
bers. It states: "The city manag-
er of Vero Beach is not a mem-
*ber of the city council but
rather responsible to it for the
proper administration of city
affairs. A meeting, therefore,
between the city manager and
one councilman would not vio-
late the Sunshine Law."
However, even then, he must
"not act as a liaison for board
members by circulating infor-
mation and thoughts of indi-
vidual councilmen to therest of
the board."
SEven if allowed by the
Sunshine Law, our Charter
would prohibit these 'private
meetings. As previously stated,
our Charter requires all meet-
ings of the council to be open
to tie public." Since the city
manager" has a seat on the
council, any meeting with
another council member must
be open to the public by our
Charter.
Public participation in gov-
ernment is essential, you know:
government of the people, by
the' people, for the people. I
think the Florida Supreme
Court expressed it best in their
opinion in Palm Beach v.
Gradison, stating: "every meet-
ing of any board, commission,
agency or authority of a munic-
ipality should be a marketplace
of ideas, so that the govern-
mental agency may have suffi-
cient input from the citizens
who are going to be affected by
the subsequent action of the
municipality."
Open government is not easy.
Governing is a dirty business, or
should be. There should be
debate and discussion, petitions
and protests, hard questions
with no easy answers. That
process results in better govern-
ment. Oh egos get bruised and
friendships are tested but as
they say, if you can't stand the
heat, get out of the kitchen, or
in this case, out of the
Sunshine!
Smith lives in downtown
Jacksonville Beach with his family.


To the editor:
.Well, as we can' all see, the
Mayport Road, maybe it
should be Meserve Road, now
the speed limit is being chal-
lenged, and I .really believe
that during the construction-
phase it should be lowered;
but then we go back to why
this is an issue? Why fix what
*isn't broke, Maypoxt road
wasn't broke? Being retired
Military, did someone forget
the wonderful drive into-
work and the wonderfulness
of leaving the bases in the
afternoon, with: one or two
Aircraft Carriers in port?
Granted, there is no Carriers,
in Mayport, but,. there is a
whole lot more drivers, these
days and more people live in
this area. Widening should be
the .issue, it is, ALL over
Florida, but not here? Now
that we have smaller lanes, IE.
the inside lane and barriers


for the new medium that are
high enough to catch.
,bumpers and cause serious
damage if someone pulls out
or serves into your lane, your
wheels will finally hit some-
thing after your vehicle is
totaled. I'm sure those raised
curbing meets DOT stan-
dards, but now there is no
place to go to if an emergency
vehicle comes down the road
during rush hour, where do
you turn to get out of it's
way? (Could be a good law-
suit?)
With all that high curbing,
accidents will probably con-
tinue, but most of the acci-
dents are JSO's jurisdiction, as
a matter of fact the majority
of Mayport Road is JSO's
jurisdiction, I wonder if
Atlantic Beach, is going to
chip in? How about the
school buses, when you drop
off kids, to traffic used to stop


because of Florida law, now
because of the medium strips,
they don't have to? I'm one of
those people who travel
Mayport Road everyday, I see
turn offs leading no where, I
see no turnoffs where there
should be and seemingly,
OOPs and something that
was laid down, poof, it was
removed?
I guess phase two of this
'project will install sprinklers,
so the road can get a good
soaking for another nice road
hazard.
I just don't really feel,
everyone was onboard for
this project. In the end, it'll
probably look good, but still
have all the inconveniences,
that are currently ongoing.
What a shame to spend
money, that could have been
put to a better use.

tion that I am affiliated with in
writing this letter.
If you are interested in know-
ing about Mayport Fishing
Village. and what it really going
on here,contact me at 904-372-
9717. I will personally give you
a free tour of the Village and tell
you about our history, culture
and daily living. I will show you
a slide show of old Mayport and
introduce you to some of the
town folk. I will show you the
revitalization plans we have
been working on for Mayport
Village. I believe you will be
pleasantly surprised. You may
decide for yourself.
We are hard working, patriot-
ic Americans. Our voting
precinct is in the Mayport
Community Center. We have
three historic very active
churches in the Village. Eight
new homes have been built in
the last two years. We have
many well kept homes, between
50 and 100 years old. The
Marine Science Education
Center is the only one of its
kind in Florida. The St. John's
Mayport Lighthouse and his-
toric Mayport Spanish Cemetery
are on the National Register of
Historic Places.
The Capt. Joseph King home
and others are on the local reg-
ister of historical places.
" Ninety-five percent of the
people of Mayport Village do
not want to sell their homes,
businesses or properties. They
all oppose the Cruiseship
Terminal. We are less than 60
acres of land and much too
small for such an industry. We
do understand the economic
impact of the contract, JAX-
PORT had with Japan and what
it will mean to Jacksonville and
the State of Florida. There must
be a more suitable place found
for a cruiseship terminal!
Mayport Village is a part of
the Timucuan National
Preservation * area.
Representative Charles Bennett
composed the map and
Mayport Village is in it.
Rightfully so, considering
French Capt. Jean Ribault placed
the first monument here in
Mayport Village.
We are recognized as a bird
sanctuary, there are otters that
use the creeks and salt marshes
around Mayport Village.
Manatees are seen frequently,
passing slowly and gracefully
along the docks in the river.
The'pollution from the Cruise
terminal and ships will effect all
the wildlife, estuaries and natu-
ral resources along the St.John's
River, in and around our Village.
We have only one road (A1A) in
and out of the Village. We have
close to 500 people employed
along the working waterfront
and businesses in the Village.
If you come to visit, I will
explain how the Legislature des-
ignated. Mayport a Working
Waterfront Community and
much more. The unique
Mayport Fishing Village, with its
history and culture, is one of a
few left and should be preserved
for future generations. Mayport
has one of the largest shrimping
fleets in the state. There are
between 30-40 trawlers operat-
ing daily out of Mayport. The
shrimping ,fishing and marine
industry is a $14 billion a year
industry. I have heard that
Mayport is the oldest continu-
ously working fishing village in
the U.S. And I know it has the
finest seamen and the best peo-
ple anywhere!
This Village was dedicated to


Almighty God by the Spanish
and the French in the 1500s.We
have always been aware of this
great blessing over us. This was
passed down to me by genera-
tions long gone now. I hope to
see you in Mayport.

Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa has completed major renovations
to the Cabana Beach Club in Ponte Vedra Beach. The refurbish-
ment project, which included Ipgrades to the private club's pool,
restaurants and playground areas, were property wide and took
several months to complete.


Adventure Landing is
expanding
Adventure Landing has pur-
chased the St. Augustine
Family Fun Factory on State
Road 16. The name of the fam-
ily entertainment center has
already been changed to
Adventure Landing, and it is
now open daily.
The newest Adventure
Landing features some of the
same standard attractions
found at other Adventure
Landing parks: a well-land-
scaped 18-hole miniature golf
course, a 1/4 -mile go-kart
track, a kiddy go-kart track,
batting cages and a large game
room. Birthday parties and
group outings will be brought
up to the same high-quality
standards that the other
Adventure Landings offer their
guests.
Plans for a waterpark are
being considered for this prop-
erty, which is located directly
off 1-95.
"A lot of tourists stop at the
exit we are on because of the
Outlet Malls right off the inter-
state, and it's one of the ways
to St. Augustine Beach," says
Hank Woodburn, President
and Founder of Adventure
Landing. "This location could
certainly support a waterpark."
There are nine other
Adventure Landing properties
with two in Duval County:
Jacksonville Beach and

Passing along the pain
of high gas prices
With gasoline prices creeping
up to $4 per gallon, service com-
panies are more than feeling the
pain; they're passing price
increases on to customers. If
done on the sly, though, most
customers will be unhappy,
according to Angie's List, a
nationwide ratings firm and
reviewer of service companies.
"Service providers across the
country are struggling with how
to respond to the skyrocketing
fuel costs," said Angie Hicks,
founder of Angie's List. "Our
advice is to be upfront about
passing along the costs; most
customers will understand if
they're alerted to it because
they're paying more, too."
Angie's List,


(www.angieslist.com), surveyed
more than 1,700 service compa-
nies across the country to gauge
how the price at the pump is
affecting both ends of the serv-
ice equation. Even with the
ever-increasing gas costs, the
average Angie's List member
plans to spend $11,250 on
home improvement and main-
tenance projects this year, up 13
percent over the average they
reported spending in 2007.
The Angie's List poll showed:
* 85 percent of service
providers say the gas prices have
affected their bottom lines.
* 60 percent are passing costs
on through fuel surcharges or.
basic service rates.
* 43 percent of the companies
say their customers understand
why rates are going up.
* Only 9 percent of cus-
tomers responded angrily to the
higher bills.
Other advice:
Know what you're paying
for:
Insist on itemized charges
related to fuel costs so you
know exactly what you are
paying for.


Urbana to feature offices


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
A shelved project that once
touted a mix of office and
loft space in the Central
Business District is back on
but without the residential
component.
The Urbana, a three-story
development at 311 3rd
Street North in Jacksonville
Beach, is moving forward
after original investors
stepped down.
Investors with Dickinson-
Klotz recently announced
that the property was for sale
below the current land
appraised value and included
the existing development
package.
Originally, the Urbana was
proposed with 26 profession-
al office units, ground floor
retail space, garage parking
and residential loft space.
Jorge Suazo, one of the
original developers involved
in the project, said last
March that he sold his share
in the project because he
6dipsed' the 'residential '61&
ment.
"To reach the highest and


best use of the land you have
to meet the market demo-
graphic," Suazo said. "When
40 percent of the market seg-
ments are on the way down,
the project was doomed to
begin with."
A representative with L&N
Realty, who is handling the
leasing of the retail and
office space at the newly res-
urrected Urbana develop-
ment, said the project will
move ahead without the resi-
dential use.
The property remains
under the ownership of the
Urbana, LLC. Construction is
tentatively scheduled to
begin in September with a
projected completion date of
fall, 2009.
Office space will replace
the residential use on the
third floor with a rental rate
of $20-30 per square foot and
a purchase price of $390 per
square foot.
Ground floor retail space is
available for lease at $28-$32
per square foot and a sale

Last Jax Beach mobile home park closes


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER

The last mobile home park in
Jacksonville Beach is officially
closed months before a fall
deadline for residents to relo-
cate.
Plans to convert the Golfair
Mobile Home and RV Park at
1300 Beach Boulevard into a
multiunit apartment complex,
called The Broadstbne, are about
four months ahead of schedule
with crews working to clear
abandoned trailer shells from
the property.
Project Manager Bill Bollwerk
with Alliance Residential in
Atlanta Tuesday said that con-
struction is slated to begin this
summer with the first units
completed by spring, 2009.
Bollwerk said the project team
is "getting caught up" on
drainage work associated with
the development while archi-
tects complete renderings of the
project in the Florida-cracker
style with tin roofs and earth-
toned exteriors.
The project will feature nine
apartment buildings and a
1,236-square-foot . clubhouse
and a swimming pool.
"They all left early so we


saved a bunch of. time. I guess
they knew what was coming
when they saw all of the other
parks being sold at the Beaches,"
he said of the mobile home park
residents.
"We didn't think the park
would empty so fast."
Nearly 100 remaining park
residents were notified last fall
that they must relocate by Sept.
20, 2008 to make way for the
new residential development.
Bollwerk said Alliance helped
some residents, including an
elderly gentleman, find other
housing, Bollwerk said.
Compensation was also avail-
able from the state's Mobile
Home Relocation Trust Fund
which provides financial assis-
tance to displaced tenants who
move within a 50-mile radius.
"It is a pretty good law in
Florida," Bollwerk said.
Developers obtained a demo-
lition permit April 23 to remove
the leasing office and prep the
11.4-acre parcel for the under-
ground utility work needed to
support the new project.
Staff in the city's Planing and
Development Department
Tuesday said the developers
have not yet applied for a build-
ing permit to begin construc-


tion.
City planners approved the
site plan in August, 2007 to
allow the conversion of 121
trailer homes into a total of 228
multifamily units.
Senior Planner Bill Mann said
a relocation study was required
as part of the development plan
application to determine if com-
parable housing will be available
for the displaced tenants.
The survey completed by
Whitcomb Realty showed there
is adequate space in the
Jacksonville area trailer park
community to absorb residents
ousted by the closure of the
Golfair Park.
The real estate survey of 20
mobile home communities
showed a total of 6,223 spaces
with 5,424 or 87.16 percent
occupied. Of the communities
studied, 799 lots .remained
vacant.
Bollwerk said he hopes that
the Broadstone will comple-
ment the surrounding area and
provide affordable housing
opportunities-for the communi-
ty.
"This is an interesting part of
Jacksonville Beach. Imagine if
you are a young person just
starting out and you don't want

Hornsby


needs a


clinic in


decency


Kudos to University of
Florida head football
coach Urban Meyer for
booting Jamar Hornsby off
the team without delay after
the former Gator safety was
arrested last week on charges
of fraudulent use of a credit
card. For those who haven't
heard, Hornsby reportedly
billed nearly $3,000 on a gas
card that belonged to Ashley,
Slonina, the UF student who
died in an October, 2007
motorcycle accident in which
UF football player, Michael
Guilford; also was killed.
What's even more gut
wrenching is that Hornsby
placed the first of the 70 spu-
rious charges the very day
after Slonina died, when he
supposedly helped clean out
her apartment.
While many Florida players
have made some very poor
decisions under Meyer's
watch the last three-plus
years, Hornsby's actions prove
that he was not even close to
being in what the coach likes
to call "the one percent of
one percent" of superior ath-.
letes who are also top-notch
people.
, I'm sure some desperate
feam out there will-give
Hornsby another crack at
football. Wherever the kid
lands, hopefully someone will
take time off the field to hone
his skills in human compas-
sion and decency...
Jackson State head football
coach Rick Comegy on the
possibility of getting former
LSU QB Ryan Perrilloux, who
was booted from the Bengal
Tigers a few weeks ago: "We
want to be in the ballpark like
everyone else who's recruiting
him and see what the situa-
tion is and try to see if he fits
our program and those type
of things."
OK, Coach. And what will
you do if he comes and does-
n't fit your program? Send
him packing? Truth is that,
given the opportunity,
Jackson State will build its
team around Perrilloux, no
questions asked.
It's a shame how even the
lousiest of people seemingly
have an infinite number of
opportunities just because
they can run, jump and/or
throw a ball. We really can't
expect a change, however,
until we stop pouring zillions
of dollars into sports. I'm not
one to talk either, as I have
already dedicated a large por-
tion of my tax rebate check to
next college football season.
Feeding the monster, I guess .

Here we are with around
100 days until the beginning
of college football season and
about 240 until the Ohio
State Buckeyes lose another
national championship game.
You see, there is always some-
thing to write about college
football . .
Taking my tongue out of
my cheek, most college foot-
ball pundits believe that this
is the year Ohio State shuts
up people like me. And look-
ing at the Buckeyes' roster, it's
easy to understand why the
majority has them playing for
all the marbles in Miami next
January.
James Laurinaitis, Beanie
Wells, Malcolm Jenkins and
15 other returning starters
make it hard to pick against
Ohio State. If the Buckeyes
travel out to USC Sept. 13 and
play a respectable game .
against the Trojans, maybe I'll
jump on the Ohio State
national championship band-
wagon. But it's gonna take
more than an undefeated run
through the Big 2, er, I mean,
Big 10 Conference.

The first of this season's
three Beaches Fine Arts Series
sprint triathlons is scheduled
for Saturday beginning and
ending at Mickler's Landing in
Ponte Vedra Beach.
This year marks the 22nd
anniversary season for the
BFAST series, which consists of
a quarter-mile ocean swim, a
10.5-mile bicycle race, and a
3.1-mile run.
The course area includes
Ponte Vedra Blvd., Corona
Road, SR 210 and A1A at the
crossing points. Officials have
issued a traffic warning for
the area for early Saturday
morning as participants make
their way through the course.
The event is scheduled to
begin at 7 a.m.
Last year, Will Pearce made
it a clean sweep with victories
in all three sprint triathlons to
earn the Lifestyle Realtors
BFAST men's championship.
After completing the third
race in 50 minutes and 23 sec-
onds - nearly two and a half
minutes ahead of his nearest
competitor - the 19-year-old
said it wasn't as easy as it
appeared.
"Looks can be deceiving,"
he said. "I have to thank God
for even letting me be out
here because earlier this week I
was so sick I couldn't even sit
up off my bathroom floor.
"I wasn't even able to walk
until Wednsday... I was so
dehydrated I was having trou-
ble breathing. And just two or
three days later I'm out here
doing a race and I did pretty
well."
Atlantic Beach's Charles
Carlin, 22, was actually the
first man out of the water fol-
lowing the ocean swim, but
SPearce passed him in the first
transition and never looked
back.
"I wasn't surprised by being
second out of the water
because there are usually a few
pure swimmers out here," said
Pearce. "I decided that as long
as he didn't get too far ahead
of me I'd probably be aljigh�
because I've-got-a pretty strong
bike."
Pearce said knowing a com-
petitor must participate in all
three BFAST races to qualify
for the overall title inspired
him to push past his illness.
"I just kind of slipped into
the zone and tried not to
think about [how sick I was],"
he said. "The bike hurt a little
bit, but by the time I got to
the run I was able to cruise.
in."
On the women's side,
Daytona Beach's Mallory
Dunn won last July's BFAST
race, her first-ever victory in
the series after finishing sec-
ond in both the May and June
competitions. The win put
Dunn over the top in points as
she claimed the overall series
championship.
"I was pretty close in the
last two, but this time I
worked on going out harder
on the bike, then just holding
on in the run," Dunn said fol-
lowing the race.
That strategy paid off as
Dunn was first out of the
water in 6 minutes and 18 sec-
onds, still in first after clock-
ing 27:30 in the 10.5-mile bike

race, and a little more than
two minutes ahead of her clos-
est rival after completing the
3.1-mile run in 19:13.
Dunn's overall time of 55:54
was two minutes 17 seconds
ahead of second-place finisher
Jennifer Hanley-Pinto.
Kathleen Baldwin was to the
top woman in the series open-


er last May 19, while Hanley-
Pinto won the June 9, 2007
race.
In both of those events
Dunn finished a close second,
particularly the June race in
which she' was just eight sec-
onds behind Hanley-Pinto.
"I wasn't disappointed
about finishing second in the

ter-mile ocean swim in last July's final BFAST race. Pearce won the overall championship.


other two races," said Dunn.
"The people that beat me
were really good."
Like Pearce, Dunn said she
was aware that overall cham-
pions must participate in all
three of the season's races to
have a shot at the title.
"I didn't go out expecting
to be overall champion, but
'after the first two I kind of
knew it was possible," she


said. "The run and the swim
are probably my strongest
events, so that's why I focused
on the bike."
The triathlon series, enter-
ing its 22nd season, is the
major fundraiser for the Fine
Arts concert events. The
Beaches Fine Arts Series pres-
ents free concerts, educational
programs and art exhibits to
the community.


Silverberg to coach


at Ponte Vedra High


FROM STAFF
Former Nease High girls
soccer coach Dave Silverberg.
who guided the Panthers to
four state championships in
seven seasons, has been hired
as the first girls soccer coach
at the new Ponte Vedra High
School.
"It is impossible to see the
future, but if the past us a
reliable predictor, the Ponte
\ edra High School girls soc-
cer program is destined for
success," said PV High athlet-
ic director Gene Baker.
In seven seasons at Nease,
Silverberg's teams won six
district championships, three
St. lohns River Athletic
Conference titles and won
state championships in 2002,
2005, 2006 and 2008.
"We have set a high stan-
dard, but the challenge at
Ponte Vedra High is to build
a program that aspires to the
same heights," Silverberg


said. "First impressions last a
long time. We will compete,
initially, with class, pride and
honor. Our reputation is who
we are."
Silverberg will being his
tenure with a tournament
appearance at Flagler during
the last week of October,
then open district play
against St. Johns County's
other new school, Creekside
High. on November 4.
In other Sharks sports
news, former Vanderbilt ten-
nis player and LPGA staff
member Hilary Hoffman is
the school's new girls golf
and tennis coach.
"I have loved the challenge
of building a team," said
Hoffman, who formerly
coached golf at Fruit Cove.
"The kids at Fruit Cove
embraced the opportunity
and I expect the girls at Ponte
Vedra will be just as excited
as we begin to get the pro-
gram off the ground."

Holloway taking aim at East Coast Championships

Holloway taking aim at East Coast Championships


By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER

After winning the Open
Men's division of the
WaveMasters surf contest
May 5, there is no denying
that David Holloway is the top
amateur surfer in North
Florida.
Holloway, 21, didn't start
surfing competitively until he
was 16 years old because he
didn't think he was good
enough. Now he is setting
himself in position to win the
East Coast Championships,
compete in the U.S. Surfing
Championships and, eventual-
ly, turning professional.
"There is such a large talent
pool of great surfers in this
area, I never thought I was
good enough," said Holloway,
who grew up in Atlantic
Beach.
"I got a late start but then I
realized there's room for me,
too."
Holloway started surfing
when he was 9 years old with
his dad, Dan Holloway, a
teacher and cross country and
track coach at Fletcher High.
One of Holloway's best friends,
Wayne "P.J." Satterwhite, Jr.,
finally talked David into surf-
ing contests when they were
in high school. They were
classmates at Mayport Middle
School and Fletcher High and
always out surfing together.
Satterwhite, 22, won the
East Coast Championships and
the U.S. Surfing
Championships in 2007 and
recently turned pro.
Satterwhite had never surfed
in California before competing
in the U.S. Championships in


Surf


Culture


Huntington Beach, and ended
up winning the most presti-
gious amateur contest in
North America.
"He totally inspired me to
go for it with surfing," David
Holloway said. "My goal with
surfing is to go pro - I could
totally see myself doing that
and loving it - but I know I
wouldn't be able to do it for
the rest of my career. I would
love to use it as a foot in the
door into the surfing indus-
try."
Holloway graduated with
honors from Fletcher High in
2005 and is currently working


on his AA degree in business at
Florida Community College of
Jacksonville [FCCJ]. He is also
a licensed massage therapist.
He sets up his massage ther-
apy booth at contests such as
the WaveMasters and opens
shop for all the competitors.
He said he plans to transfer.to
a four-year university after
completing his AA degree in
the fall, but Holloway also
wants to keep his options
open for surfing.
This summer Holloway is
working as a surf guide in
Nicaragua in the area known
as Playa Gigante or "The
Giant's Foot." He is leaving at
the end of June to surf in
Costa Rica before his position
as a guide begins in July.
"I was checking things out
on the Internet to find some-
thing like this and there was a
position available," Holloway
said.
"I'll be taking people out on
boats and surfing with them
and making sure all of their
needs are met from getting
supplies to helping cook if it's
a big group."
Holloway has surfed in
Central America before as well
as Tahiti, Australia and.
California. He said his sister,
Amanda, 24, has traveled all
over the world and gave him
the travel bug.
Amanda graduated from
Fletcher in 2001 and is a pho-
tographer in Philadelphia.
Their mom, Trish, is an art
teacher at Atlantic Beach
Elementary School. Of all the
places Holloway has surfed, he
said Central America is his
favorite destination.
"The people are friendlier

ville Beach Pier earlier this month.


and the dollar goes a lot
longer," Holloway said. "I also
want to improve my surfing to
get ready for the fall."
The trip to Central America
is a way for Holloway to train
for surfing in the East Coast
Championships in September
in Cape Hatteras, North
Carolina and the U.S. Open
Surfing Championships in
Huntington Beach, Calif. in
October.
He is the men's champ for
the North Florida District of


the Eastern Surfing Association
this season and his goal is to
win the East Coast
Championship.
If Holloway places in the top
four in Hatteras he will be
invited to compete in
California. He said he is
already saving money to plan
for both trips.
"I've been knocking on the
door of the surfing world for a
while now," Holloway said,
"and I feel like this is going to
be my time."

'AB rocks, Neptune rol


FROM STAFF
The slogan for Saturday's
22nd annual "Dancin' in the
Street" festival at Town
Center is "Atlantic Beach
rocks, Neptune Beach rolls."
The slogan, which appears
on this year's commemora-
tive festival T-shirts, wasn't
set in'stone overnight.
"There was a lot of discus-
sion over who [rocked and
who rolled]," event organizer
Patsy Bishop said.
The spirited talks helped
determine the one-day festi-
val's musical lineup.
Bands that rock and bands
that roll perform on stages at

genre to the next," Bishop
said.

Diamond stays in stripped-down mode


"Home Before Dark,"
released last week, finds Neil
Diamond in the same
acoustic, stripped-down mode
which worked so well on
2005's "12 Songs."
Returning producer Rick
Rubin hasn't deviated much
.from "12 Songs'" formula.
The arrangements are fairly
bare-bones, with some of the
crack musicians (guitarist
Mike Campbell and keyboard
player Benmont Tench from
the Heartbreakers, along with
guitarist Smokey Hormel)
from "12 Songs" returning.
There are two main differ-
ences between "12 Songs"
and "Home Before Dark." On
"Dark," Diamond has taken a
somber, moodier turn in his
songwriting. This actually
works well; his voice, weath-
ered with age but still strong
and vibrant, is more suited
for melancholy and heartache
than for upbeat, peppy tunes.
The second difference is not
so good - "Dark" is a much
more uneven album than "12
Songs."
At its high points, "Dark"
takes the formula that worked
so well on "12 Songs" to new
heights. Once again,
Diamond has concentrated


HAL
NEWSOME
REVIEWER


more on song-crafting than
album-making, with Rubin
bringing out the best in
Diamond's voice by keeping it
at the forefront of the sparse
arrangements.
Without the overblown
orchestration and overbearing
pop hooks that marred many
of Diamond's later albums,
the songs themselves have to
stand out, and they do so
strongly. The songs on "Home
Before Dark" are some of
Diamond's most lyrically-
involved ever.
The first six songs are, at
times, almost sinister in their
treatment - when he sings "A
voice is sitting on my shoul-


der and telling me/The night
is warm now but it might be
getting colder/Better look out
friend/Before you finally
decide which way to go" from
"Don't Go There," Diamond
sounds like he stepped right
out of a dark alley to warn
you not to follow him (espe-
cially when he throws in a
menacing chuckle near the
end of the song).
Diamond proves that even
in his darker moments he can
still conquer ballad territory,
as shown on the remarkable
"Another Day (That Time
Forgot)," a duet with the
Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines.
Diamond manages to bring a
depth of emotion to the song
that sounds refreshingly unaf-
fected and completely heart-
felt, with Maines' crystal voice
blending in surprisingly well
with his rough, world-weary
baritone.
"Forgotten" is another
album highlight, with an up-
tempo arrangement providing
a stark contrast to the images
of loss and betrayal contained
in the lyrics.
Unfortunately, "Home

Diamond: Deluxe DVD


Cont. from B-I
Before Dark" then begins its
missteps with "Act Like a
Man," a quasi-country ballad
so laid back it brings the
album's momentum to a
grinding, painful halt.
Diamonds regains a bit of
ground with "Whose Hands'
Are These," a weak song lyri-
cally but redeemed somewhat
by Tench's keyboard work and
Diamond's insistence on giv-
ing his vocal all, even 6n a
song that doesn't truly merit
it.
"No Words" and "The Power
of Two" are huge steps back-
ward, both lyrically and musi-
cally, to the days when
Diamond's songs were taking
a backseat to the albums they *
were on. Both seem out of
place here.
"Slow it Down" starts off
interestingly enough with a
bit of almost-rapping, before
slowing down to the point of
making you wonder if
Diamond just plain ran out of
steam before he got to this
song.
The title song closes the
album like a creaking door

SUMMER

Atlantic Beach
The City of Atlantic Beach
Department of Recreation
holds registration for summer
camp through May 24. Register
at the Department of
Recreation and Special Events,
Adele Grage Community
Center, 716 Ocean Blvd.
Children ages 5-12 may be reg-
istered from 8:30-11:30 a.m.
and 1-4 p.m. Monday through
Friday. For information, call
904-247-5828.
Camp starts June 16 and fin-


that stays open too long; it's
not a bad effort lyrically, but
musically it just d-r-o-n-e-s on.
Do yourself a favor - spend an
extra couple-three bucks for
the "deluxe edition" of "Home
Before Dark." You'll be reward-
ed with two great bonus
tracks; Harry Nilsson's
"Without Her" and a superb
cover of Bob Dylan's "Make
You Feel My Love." These two
extra songs keep the last half
of the album from faltering
completely.
The deluxe edition also con-
tains a DVD with performanc-
es of three of the album
tracks, as well as an interest-
ing, if somewhat hurried, ver-
sion of Paul Simon's "The
Boxer."

CAMPS
ishes the week before school
begins. Camp runs from 9:30
a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays at the
Donner Park and Jordan Park
Community Centers. The
camp costs $45 a week per
child or a $50 one-time fee for
children who qualify.
Lunch is included for chil-
dren attending camp. Each
child gets a camp T-shirt.

ing the YMCA camp at the

the human figure.

will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.

Crenshaw hosts art competition


FROM CONTRIBUTOR
U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw
hosted his annual
Congressional Art
Competition Saturday, May 10,
at the Nathan H. Wilson
Center for the Arts at Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville.
Students from across the 4th
Congressional District entered
their artworks for an opportu-
nity to have it displayed in
Washington, D.C., among
pieces submitted by the
nation's most talented young
artists.
"We are fortunate that so
many gifted young artists live


here in North Florida and this
annual competition will give
them the opportunity to show-
case their talents," Crenshaw
said.
".I strongly encourage every
high school artist to take
advantage of this great oppor-
tunity."
The winner of the annual art
competition will have their art-
work proudly displayed in the
U.S. Capitol for one year. In
addition, the winning student
will receive two round trip air-
fares to Washington, D.C., to
participate in a ribbon-cutting
ceremony with Crenshaw and
other members of Congress.


Along with the airfares
donated by Southwest Airlines,
a $500 donation will be pre-
sented to each winner to help
their art class purchase sup-
plies, courtesy of Amelia Island
Plantation.
Crenshaw's website will be
hosting all the artwork in a vir-
tual online art gallery.
A panel of judges will review
the artwork and select five
honorable mentions and one
grand-prize winner. Every stu-
dent who participates will be
awarded a Congressional
Certificate of Recognition.

Eight dogs seized in St. Johns County

Eight dogs seized in -St. Johns County


FROM STAFF
St. Johns County Animal Control has seized
seven pit bulls and one German shepherd,
along with dog-fighting equipment, following
an anonymous request for a cruelty investiga-
tion in West Augustine, police said.
After obtaining a search warrant May 8, ani-
mal control officers in cooperation with the St.
Johns Sheriff's Office searched the property and
removed logging chain, dog-fighting magazines
and numerous other items associated with dog
fighting. The dogs had multiple scars, both old
and new, that appeared to be consistent with
dog fighting, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The evidence is being reviewed in coordina-
tion with the office of the State Attorney.


Felony and misdemeanor charges are anticipat-
ed.
and the County anticipates filing both
felony and misdemeanor charges. The owner of
the property is Edgar Williams and the suspect
is his son Jermone Williams.
The eight animals are currently being held
and treated at the St. Johns County Pet Center,.
off U.S. 1 north of St. Augustine.
This is the second dog-fighting case in St.
Johns County in recent months. The county
continues to place a very high priority on inves-
tigating any dog-fighting case.
For more information, contact the Pet Center
at 209-6190 or animal control manager Paul
Studivant at 669-0112.


When making wine from mountain-grown grapes,

'throw everything out the door and start over'


PET TALES


Legendary winemaker Jess
Jackson likes to keep an eye
n his legion of winery oper-
ations spread throughout
California. But imagine being the
winemaker whose operation is
within eyesight of the big boss.
That's the job for Graham
Weerts, winemaker of Stonestreet
Alexander Mountain Estate wines
in Sonoma County. It is here Mr.
Jackson not only found an idyllic
place to live, but also saw a future
in sturdy wines made from
mountain-grown grapes.
It isn't easy.
"Throw everything out the
door and start again," says
Weerts.
Most of what he learned in his
native Cape Town, South Africa,
didn't apply to this difficult grow-
ing region when he arrived in
2004.
Fog that settles on the valley
floor actually allows grapes to
ripen at elevations as high as
2,400 feet. While neighboring
vineyards sit on plateaus,
Stonestreet's vineyards are on
steep slopes that defy mechanical
harvesting. Rows of grapes are
planted vertically and have to be
monitored carefully because the
grapes-rapidly change ripeness. A
wide variety of soil types pose a
challenge as well.
Making wine is one thing;
making good wine under these
conditions is another. Stonestreet
has managed to produce out-
standing chardonnays and awe-
some, complex cabemet sauvi-
gnons for which the mountain-
grown grapes are known.
We were actually introduced to
the wines from these vineyards
when Allan Hemphill was mak-
ing incredibly rich chardonnays
in the early 1990s under the
Gauer Estate Vineyards label -
Jackson bought the vineyards in
1995. They were among the best
chardonnays we tasted at the
time - it's not surprising that
these Stonestreet chardonnays are
great, too.
Eschewing the flabby, oak-
soaked chardonnays that domi-
nate the market, Stonestreet's
chardonnays have bright acidity
and a mineral character that is
best paired with food.
With low yields and labor-
intensive harvesting, prices for
these wines are as steep as the
vineyard's slopes. But at these
prices you'll taste the unique
qualities that come from labor-
intensive noibntainigrown " ''
grapes.
The 2005 chardonnays are on
the shelf now, but the 2006
whites and 2005 reds will begin
appearing in a couple of months.
Stonestreet Alexander
Mountain Estate Chardonnay
2005 ($25). Sixty-five percent of
this wine undergoes malolatic fer-
mentation in French oak to tame
the acidity. The result is a creamy
citrus flavor with plenty of apple
and mineral notes. A complex
wine for the price.
Stonestreet Alexander
Mountain Estate Upper Barn
Chardonnay 2005 ($42). This is
one of the best chardonnays we
have tasted in a long time. The
oldest vineyard in the estate col-
lection, Upper Barn straddles a
1,800-foot ridge. Its gravelly soil
yields low quantities of grapes,
but the fruit produces complex
wines with a mineral thread.
Orange peel aromas introduce a
layered wine with flavors of
pineapples, peaches and great
spice from the French oak it is
aged in.
Stonestreet Alexander Valley
Mountain Estate Cabemet
Sauvignon 2005 ($42). Unlike
the 2004, this wine is mostly
cabemet sauyignon with only 5
percent blended with cabemet
franc. The fruit is bright and redo-
lent of blackberry and cherry fla-
vors with hints of cedar and
mocha. The 2005 won't be on
the market for a couple of
months.
Stonestreet Alexander
Mountain Estate Legacy 2004
($75). This blend of Bordeaux
grapes is a charmer. Using grapes
planted 2,400 feet up, it has good


unique.
Amarone is made in an
ancient method of drying the
grapes on bamboo racks in
September and pressing partially
dry grapes in February. With
nearly 40 percent less juice, the
cost of the wine is considerably
more. But the flavors are intense
and the texture soft.
Masi, one of the top producers
of amarones, makes four single
vineyard versions that emphasize
the personality of each vineyard.
Here's what we tasted:
Masi Campolongo di Torbe
Amarone Classico 2001 ($135).
Lots of elegance in the blend of
corvina (70 percent), rondinella
and molinara. Classic raisin aro-
mas followed by sweet flavors of
cherries, cocoa and spice. Soft tex-
ture but deceiving tannins make
this a delicious wine for current
or long-term drinking.
Serego Alighiei Vaio Armaron
Amarone Classico 2001 ($75).
Varietal cherry aromas with
intriguing violets and rosemary
notes. Plum and mocha flavors
add to the enticing package.
Masi Costasera Amarone
Classico 2004 ($80). Raisins and
prunes dominate the aromas
with cherries, mocha and cinna-
mon on the palate. Long finish,
velvet texture.
Masi Mazzano Amarone
Classico 2001 ($135). Vanilla
and plums stand out in the bou-
quet of this unbelievable wine.
Full bodied yet soft on the palate,
it has layered fruit of plums and
cherries. Long finish.

Weekend 6 The Beaches Leader/PontL Vedra Leader May 16, 2008









Granite has become the quintessential countertop


Like a McDonald's at
every major intersec-
tion, granite has
become ubiquitous. It's
now the quintessential
countertop material. But
how did we get here?
Apparently, there was an
unspoken yet telepathi-
cally transmitted mandate
that said if you own a
home you must have
granite. If you're selling a
home, you must update it
with granite. Or, if you
are buying a home, you
must expect granite on
the countertops. If you
are building a home, well,
you know how it goes.
But let's get to the nitty
gritty about granite and
see what all the fuss is
about.

Granite pros

Granite is one tough
countertop material. It's
almost indestructible. It
can withstand heat and if
professionally sealed, it
can handle any stain. It's
also drop-dead gorgeous.
Who can resist that sea of
solid earthly beauty? It
also comes in a range of
colors and styles that can
fit into any style of
kitchen.

Granite cons

It's a pain to keep
clean. Yes, all that high-
polished glass-like reflec-
tion is gorgeous, but it
comes with a price - the
price of time that it takes
to keep granite clean. A
damp microfiber cloth
will make it sparkle and
not eat up your budget in
paper towels and window
cleaner (which should
never be used on granite
anyway). Another lesser
known granite evil? It can
absorb odors and begin to


KATHRYN WEBER
HOME COLUMNIST

smell. A mild disinfecting
cleaner will handle the
odor if yours develops an
odor.
The biggest drawback to
granite is the price. Even
though it's become very
popular and there are lots
of companies that will
take your thousands of
hard-earned dollars to
install it for you, it is also
possible to get the granite
look and panache with-
out the high price. How
so? There are a couple of
ways around the high
granite cost. One of those
is to choose a discontin-
ued color or buy a pre-cut
slab. This saves you
money because you aren't
getting something cus-
tom.. Also, some colors
aren't as popular as others
and that drives down
price. Check with your
granite dealer about any
sale pieces of discontin-
ued styles. Another
option? Granite tile.

Cost options

In 2003 when I built
my house, granite was
very expensive. We were
putting in a large island
into our kitchen and


wanted to put in granite,
but a slab the size of my
island was going to cost
almost $10,000. So, we
opted for twelve by
twelve granite tiles. We
chose "Baltic brown" that
has medium brown
splotches on a black back-
ground. When we put the
tile in and added black
grout, the island looked
like a solid sheet of gran-
ite. If you want to do the
same thing, it's important
to select a tile that allows
you to use grout that has
the same background
color as the tile.
Otherwise, if the grout
lines are highly contrast-
ed, such as black tiles
with white or grey grout,
it won't work well.
Darker, patterned tile will
probably be the safest bet
and the best look.
Katherine Pope of WP
Construction in Inez,
Texas, who I consulted
with on her gorgeous
Parade of Homes entry for
the Victoria Builders
Association also chose
granite tile instead of slab
granite for her master
bath. Pope opted for very
small mosaic-sized granite
in the master bathroom,
but the look was instantly
fresh, unique and gave
the same luxurious look
at a fraction of the cost.
You can have slab granite
in your home and it will
look great. Granite tile
just gives you a less
expensive option for
granite, and one that's a
real budget-saver.
If granite has been out
of reach, check with your
local dealer for prefabri-
cated pieces or closeout
colors. Or, try granite
tiles. They're gorgeous
and a great-looking and
an affordable granite
option.


photo by KATHRYN WEBER
When granite tiles are grouted with grout colored the same as the background color in the tile, the effect creat-
ed looks like a solid sheet of granite. This allows the homeowner to get the slab granite look at a fraction of
the cost.

First Baptist on a mission


J:( E 1 7


by KATHY NICOLETTI
STAFF WRITER
"It is important to have a 1st Baptist
Church for this community, said Dr. Bob
Loy, Pastor of the new First Baptist Church
of Ponte Vedra Beach.
The church began meeting for worship in
January at Majorie K. Rawlings Elementary
School.
Loy said that his dream for the new
church is that it will be a "major church of
servanthood in the Ponte Vedra communi-
ty.
Our mission is to help people know God,
grow in faith, and serve."
In the past, most communities have had
a First Baptist Church, said Loy.
Although there are Baptist churches in
Ponte Vedra, there has never been a First
Baptist Church, he said.
Calling the new church First Baptist goes
.back to that tradition. This does not mean
that the new church is greater or more
important than other churches, he said.
It does restate a commitment to the
Baptist denomination at a time when
churches are describing themselves as
community churches.
The new church is a member of the
Jacksonville Baptist Association and the
Florida and Southern Baptist Conventions.
The focus for the new church is the Ponte
Vedra Beach community and reaching all
of the age groups living there, said Loy.
The church is "close to where folks live"
and will be connected and involved with
the community.
Since there are no other staff members,
Loy relies on help from volunteers at the
church.
"Volunteers are our best assets, he said.
Every member is called to ministry. It is
important "to involve the laity and
empower them."
One of the challenges facing the new
church is overcoming negative attitudes
people may have about organized church-
es, said Loy.
Also, not having a building can be a neg-
ative factor for some people.
Loy, however, said he is encouraged by


.. . ,

the reception from the community and
the new faces at worship.
"We are creating the design while we are
building the building," said Loy.
'How the church looks in the future is up
to God."
