Veranda signs OK'd, 5-0
, .. o...~L -~ -.


by KATHY HARTMAN
EDITOR
It appeared as if St. Johns
County Commission Chair
Tom Manuel would delay
the Veranda sign issue a bit
longer Tuesday before the
commission OK'd the plan.
Still, Manuel said that
rules of the Ponte Vedra
Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) had pro-
duced "a very inconsistent"
collection of signs in Ponte
Vedra Beach and urged the
county staff "to look at the
overlay ordinancee]."
ARC members,, at least two
of whom had noted ARC's
role as keepers of the overlay's
code of appearance, approved
a plan for Veranda wall signs
at a protracted meeting May
14.
During that meeting at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
Library, ARC members bar-
gained with the Veranda
developer, Donis Home, for
changes in his plans for the
six-building commercial
development on the west side


I just.think a

lighted sign at that
height is detrimen-
tal ... to Ponte

Vedra as a whole.


- Ron Porterfield
Sawgrass H.O.A board member

of State Road A1A just south
of PGA Tour Boulevard.
Home's attorney, Isabelle
Lopez, presented the ARC-
approved sign plan to the
County Commission Tuesday
at, the commission meeting in
St. Augustine.
There, Ron Porterfield, a
Sawgrass Players Club
Homeowner's Association
board member, objected to a
third-floor sign facing PGA


Tour Boulevard, saying, "I
just think a lighted sign at
that height is detrimental ...
to Ponte Vedra as a whole."
Manuel suggested Home be
asked to switch that sign to a
wall facing A1A, but Lopez
said she couldn't get in touch
with Home, who was out of
country on a motorcycle road
trip.
She said it was at the May
14 ARC meeting "when we
did the whole horse-trading"
to arrive at a sign plan that
would be acceptable to ARC
members.
The sign plan had been
considered by the ARC twice,
had been approved by the St.
Johns County Planning and
Zoning Agency and had been
about two years in develop-
ment, Lopez said, adding that
she did not want another
delay.
The commission, noting
ARC would still have to
approve each individual sign,
voted 5-0 for the major modi-
fication to allow the sign
plan.

T Actor, 8, gets 'virtual' education

Sometimes Daniel Goldman has to go
to school on Saturdays.
But the 8-year-old Ponte Vedra Be'ach
actor doesn't mind.
He is able to balance a busy school
schedule between trips to California -
where he had a role on the television
series "Dexter" - through a virtual
school program.
Goldman is enrolled in Florida Virtual
Academy, a K-12,public school program
that provides flexibility for students
whose aspiring careers often result in
unconventional schedules.
"We get to travel or do whatever and it
comes with us," said his mother,
Shannon Goldman. "[Regular] schools
can't accommodate that, but this pro-
gram can."
When Daniel, at the age of 3,
announced that he wanted to be "in"
the television, his family recognized his
interest in acting.
By age 5, Daniel was enrolled in acting
classes and was booked to do a pilot
episode for Showtime's "Dexter."
The show centers on a police forensics
expert who kills those he believes have
escaped justice. Daniel played "Cody"
for 11 episodes.
"Dexter" is filmed in Los Angeles,
requiring Daniel to be on location from
May through October, according to
Shannon, who did not want to enroll
him in a California school.

Daniel Goldman of Ponte Vedra Beach
was Cody on Showtime's "Dexter."
That's when she discovered Florida
Virtual Academy.
The program allows Shannon to act as
Daniel's "learning coach" while provid-
ing step-by-step instruction on how to
teach lessons.


S"It's dummy-proof," said Shannon,
explaining that the program provides
parents with various teaching tech-
niques if the student has a problem or is
confused.
Students enrolled in the program are
also assigned a certified teacher whom
they can contact if additional help is
needed, Shannon said.
Daniel attended Ocean Palms
Elementary for kindergarten and started
FLVA in first grade. He has just complet-
ed the second grade.
"I think it's awesome," said Daniel,
who enjoys talking to his teacher in con-
ferences every two to three weeks.
Because the program allows students
to progress at their own pace, Daniel,
whose favorite subject is math, can
advance to fourth grade math while
staying in third grade science, Shannon
said.
"This program is so flexible. They can
really customize the program to your
student's needs," Shannon said.
But attendance logs are mandatory,
and students must complete 720 hours
per year, which equates to a 180-day
school schedule required in Florida.
The program, which also integrates
social events once month, is considered
a public school and all materials are pro-
vided at no cost, according to Shannon.
The flexible schedule has allowed
Daniel to star in "A Christmas Carole" at
Alhambra Dinner Theatre in
Jacksonville. That runs 40 shows during

Rough surf keeps area lifeguards extra busy


by LIZA MITCHELL
STAFF WRITER
Overcrowded beaches cou-
pled with dangerous surf con-
ditions kept lifeguards busy
over the Memorial Day week-
end.
"We've been on full sched-
ule on Sundays and holidays
since the Opening of the
Beaches but this was probably
our busiest day yet,"
Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard
Capt. Thomas Wright said
Tuesday.
Wright said lifeguards
responded to over 15 rescue


calls involving victims
trapped in rip currents.
"That is 15 times a guard
had to actually go in the
water," he said. That doesn't
account for the number of
people in the water. It could
have been one person or it
could have been multiple vic-
tims."
Red flags were posted along
the oceanfront to alert beach
goers of the dangerous surf
conditions.
The color-coded flag sys-
tem was designed to alert
beach goers of the day's con-
ditions as well as the presence


of harmful marine life. A pur-
ple flag warns swimmers of
jelly fish, man-of-war or other
dangerous sea life.
Yellow flags indicate the
possibility of rip currents.
One red flag signals the pres-
ence of severe rip currents
while double red flags will
warn swimmers that it is
unsafe to go into the water for
any reason from harsh rip cur-
rents, high surf or lightning.
A green flag will let swim-
mers know that conditions
are favorable but beach goers
are urged to always swim in
front of a lifeguard.


With thousands of people
on the beach for the holiday
- many of which were inex-
perienced swimmers * -
Wright said the lifeguards
were prepared for a busy
weekend.
"There were very bad run
outs. That happens any time
we have the onshore winds
combined with the high tides
we've been having," he said.
"The more people we have
in the water, the more chance
there is for something to hap-
pen."
According to the Neptune

Lemo0ade stand to benet cancer research


Lemonade stand to benefit cancer research
*


A Beaches family will host a
community fundraising event next
month to raise money for child-
hood cancer research.
The Dilworth family of Atlantic
Beach is hosting their third annual
"lemonade stand" - a fundraising
initiative in which participants sell
lemonade during a carnival-type
event featuring games and activi-
ties to raise money for cancer
research.
The event will be held June 7
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the


Many TVs to
In preparation for the digi-
tal TV transition in 2009, the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) has produced an inter-
active web-based map that
enables citizens to find out
where to recycle old televi-
sions. With the digital con-
version just months away,
DEP expects many unwanted
analog televisions to be recy-
cled as new digital televisions
are purchased.
"Recycling your television,
instead of throwing it away
makes a lot of sense. It keeps
waste out of landfills, and
allows the recovery of elec-
tronic components that con-
tain lead and other toxic
materials," said DEP Deputy
Secretary for Regulatory
Programs Mimi Drew.
"Conservation, reuse and
recycling of all resources and
wastes should be a key com-
ponent of our lifestyles."
Some electronics recyclers
estimate that as many as one
in four households may dis-
card at least one television as
a result of the digital conver-
sion. If that happens, Florida
could see almost two million
televisions recycled in the
next few years.

The interactive map feature
allows Floridians to identify
where to recycle electronics
with just one click. DEP's
electronics recycling website
also links to a frequently
asked questions page that
explains what the television
broadcast sighial conversion
is,, how to tell whether your
television is "digital-ready"
and how to get a $40 coupon
towards the purchase of a
digital-to-analog converter
box.
As the result of a recent
federal law, all television
broadcast signals in the U. S.
after February 17, 2009, must
be in a digital format. Any
television that uses cable or
satellite is already able to
receive the new digital for-
mat signal (digital-ready).
Older televisions that use
"rabbit ears" or a roof top
antenna can only receive the
old analog format signal and
might not be able to view
digital television program-
ming. Owners of older units
must either purchase a new
television with a digital tuner
or a digital-to-analog con-
verter box that allows older
television sets to receive the
new digital format signal.

shows and perform in music videos and commercials.
He most recently had a guest role on "Moonlight" in
which he played a kidnapped boy.
Daniel also received the 2006/07 Young Artist Award -
similar to an Oscar for young stars - and starred in two
independent films.
But acting may not be the final stop for Daniel, who said
he may "take a break" down the road.
"When he's ready to quit, so are we," said his mom.

Lifeguards are busy
- SURF, from A-1
Beach police department, lifeguards did not receive any
rescue calls, despite the level of the surf and the crowds.
In Atlantic Beach, Capt. John Phillips said guards had.
"one good rescue" Monday when a teenage swimmer was
swept out in a current and panicked because she was
unable to touch the bottom.
"We made contact with the victim because she needed
help getting in," he said, noting that guards also complet-
ed several "assists."
"By the time the guard got to them they were OK. A lot
of the assists were preventative action, if someone went
out too far."
Phillips said the run outs did not create as much of a
problem as they did for both lifeguards and beachgoers in
Jacksonville Beach but they were "aware that they were
there."
"The conditions were pretty bad. We were flying red
flags Sunday and Monday," he said. "Being high tide and
Memorial Day weekend, it was very difficult for us to get
up and down the beach."
Phillips said lifeguards in all three beaches try to main-
tain consistency when using the flag system.
"We try to all stay uniform. We all look at the condi-
tions. One beach is not going to fly a red flag and anoth-
er fly a yellow flag," Phillips said. "We try and make sure
we are all on the same page."


Beaches parking squeeze eyed


PRINCIPALS FOR THE DAY


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER
Parking limits or metered parking for
the Town Center area in Neptune Beach
will be studied.
The city is eyeing parking limits after
merchants requested timed parking,
according to City Manager Jim Jarboe.
Parking in the area has become even
more limited since One Ocean Hotel
and Resort, the former Sea Turtle,
opened, Jarboe said.
Jarboe said last week the hotel has
approximately 400 employees during
various shifts, and merchants said hotel
staff and contractors are parking in pub-
lic spaces for long periods of time.
Merchants suggested a one-hour park-
ing limit for spaces, but the council
agreed a two-hour limit-would-be moire
reasonable.
"It's worth looking at and getting
feedback," said Neptune Beach Mayor


Dick Brown. He cautioned that there is
"always the possibility that someone
shopping or having dinner could have a
bad experience."
If the city moved forward with timed
parking, Jarboe suggested hiring a
retired police officer who could work
part time at an hourly rate without ben-
efits to write citations.
A regular parking citation is $25,
according to the police department.
Merchants along Ocean Boulevard on
the Atlantic Beach side of Town Center
also had problems with parking spaces
being tied up throughout the day. The
city of Atlantic Beach installed two-
hour parking signs for the 12 spaces in
front of the businesses.
Councilor John Weldon s u g -
gested the city also study metered park-
ing.
"We're entering a financial era with
this municipality and other municipali-


ties in Florida where the sources of rev-
enue are important," he said.
Councilor Eric Pardee disagreed with
Weldon's suggestion for metered park-
ing
"I don't think it's right to charge peo-
ple to park on a street they already pay
taxes on," he said.
"If you want to have a designated area
somewhere else for people who don't
live here [but] I don't know how you
would do that."
Pardee added Town Center merchants
could "kick in" toward the cost of
enforcing a two-hour parking limit.
Councilor Fred Lee said the city previ-
ously studied the idea of metered park-
ing and the "numbers were not very
favorable," but it would be worth
"refreshing their memories" on the sub-
ject.
The council agreed' to study both
options.


Top Model behaves as if grandpa were watching


by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
STAFF WRITER

Whitney Thompson isn't
your typical model.
The curvaceous beauty who
recently took the title of
America's Next Top Model was
scouted for the show at an air-
port. Buying chocolate.
"My mom always said peo-
ple on the Titanic wish they
had their dessert," said
Thompson, who invariably
has a candy bar with her
before flying.
That seems to be her gener-
al approach to life, even
though the Atlantic Beach-
native has been propelled into
stardom practically overnight.
"I don't really think of
myself [as a famous model]. I
walk out of the house in jeans
and a t-shirt with no makeup
on," she said in an interview
Thursday.
While Thompson still
thinks of herself as a "beach
girl," her fans recognize her as
the winner of a national mod-
eling competition.
A group of young girls anx-
iously awaited her arrival at
the Neptune Beach clothing
store, Jaffi's, which outfitted
Thompson with several of her
"red carpet" ensembles.
"Is she going to be in a
limo?" asked one of the girls
excitedly.
When she arrived - sans
limo and in flip-flops -
Thompson looked genuinely
surprised to be greeted by
fans.
But she happily obliged the
girls with her autograph -
perfected in the seventh grade
- while chatting with them
about their lives.
During the interview, sever-
al fans came over to greet and
congratulate her.
In between sips of black cof-
fee, Thompson graciously
spoke to everyone, including
an 8-year-old aspiring model,
and waved to a group of
passersby.
Shelby Hicks, owner of
Shelby's Coffee Shop and
long-time family friend,
hugged Thompson, saying,
"Your community loves you."

evision May 14,'signs autographs for fans Thursday at Jaffi's, a Neptune Beach clothing store
that has provided Thompson with clothes for events.


enjoyed being home for the
first time since the show, the
trip to visit family, including
parents David and Jeanine
Thompson, was short-lived.
"I'm uber-busy," she said,
adding that her life has been a
"whirlwind" since winning
cycle 10 of ANTM May 14.
Thompson had a flight the
following day to Indianapolis
and then it was back to her
New York City "model" apart-
ment. (Victoria's Secret Model
Alessandra Ambrosio :lives
above her.)
Her current apartment is a
sharp contrast to her living
arrangement while she was on
the' television show: She
shared a house with 13 other
girls and was filmed 24 hours
a day.
"That was nuts," she said.
But Thompson, who said
she felt she was fairly por-
trayed on the show, said she's
not "crude" by nature and
wasn't fazed by the cameras.
"I try to live my life by


doing nothing that my grand-
pa wouldn't want to see me
do."
Looking back on her experi-
ence, Thompson said she
wouldn't change a thing.
"I don't regret anything,
and if I change one thing,
maybe that would have
changed everything."
"It was totally fate," she
said of making it onto the
show. Her sister, a music ther-
apy teacher, teased her for
years about auditioning
before Thompson was spotted
by an ANTM staff member.
Although Thompson's work
as next top model hasn't start-
ed yet, she's had plenty to
keep her occupied.
"I've done over 30 inter-
views in New York," she said.
"[I'm] running around in
stilettos from 5 a.m. until 11
p.m."
Thompson "vacationed" for
several, months after the show
finished taping in December,
visiting fellow co-star and


runner up Anya Kop in
Hawaii. But recently she has
been doing publicity for CW,
the network that aired the top
model show, and will be
appearing in several maga-
zines.
Her cover photo for the July
issue of Seventeen Magazine

Thompson has also booked
several "big money deals," but
could not disclose who the
campaigns are for.
Thompson will be making
approximately $25,000 a day
on some of the campaigns,
she said.
She will also likely be a
guest on the Tyra Banks Show,
and her publicists are trying
to line her up for the chance
to walk the red carpet at the
premier of Sex and the City:

The Leader's Opinion


Limiting parking

in Town Center

has some costs

Limiting parking in Town Center by using either
time limits or parking meters is under consideration
in Neptune Beach.
The goal is to make sure visitors to the area's pop-
ular stores and restaurants can more easily find a
place to park.
Truth be told, however, there really is never a
shortage of parking in the area; it's just that few peo-
ple want to pay the nominal fee charged to park in
the private lot that nearly always has space available.
Limiting parking will require investing in either
meter maid time and/or the parking meters them-
selves.
That cost may or may not be recouped by tickets
issued in the Town Center area. If the program is suc-
cessful in opening up spaces in front of eateries or
retailers, then ticket revenue will eventually dimin-
ish as compliance grows. That means less revenue to
pay for the program in the long term.
In the short term, many diners who currently
enjoy a visit to the area for a quick cocktail with
friends, followed by a leisurely dinner and a stroll
near the beach may find two hours less than ade-
quate. Ticketing the very patrons being sought could
jeopardize their future visits.
In addition to this practical concerns, it is worth
noting that federal beach renourishment funds are
provided to communities based on the parking
afforded the public.
If Town Center authorities are considering creating
a time limit for those parking in the area, then all of
the effects must be objectively studied.




Letters to the editor:


Use your head to protect it


To the editor:
I was in total disbelief the
other day while driving down
Seminole Road in Atlantic
Beach. A family of five was
driving on two scooters. The
dad had a small child riding in
front of him and a larger child
holding on in the back. Mom,
driving her own scooter, had a
larger child behind her. In
addition to the "!passenger
overload"; no 6ne was wearing
a helmet! I truly appreciate
the latest fad with everyone
going out to purchase scooters
to save money on gas, but safe-
ty must come first. The fami-
ly of five driving down the
street reminded me of a re-run
of the TV show C.H.I.P.S., the
parents rode side-by-side. This
nice leisurely family outing
was a serious accident waiting
to happen. Any experienced
rider knows that two riders
should practice riding stag-
gered so as not to hit each
other in the event one of the

riders has to make a quick
defensive move (ie.to avoid a
pot hole, charging dog or
debris in the road). Then
again, it would not have been
the ultimate family affair had
this family not been able to
ride side-by side to their desti-
nation
With the exponential
increase in scooter sales and
riders lately, it only ifakes
good sense that seriouitders
take a certified motorcycle
safety course. The same driving
and safety fundamentals apply
to a scooter rider as a motorcy-
cle rider. Let's face it, there's
not much difference between
the two modes of transporta-
tion.
As for the family of five rid-
ing around the beach, how
about not worrying so much
about saving a buck on gas,
and more about saving a life.

Appreciate work by Roettges


To the editor:
We would like to thank
Lorraine and Les Roettges for
their hard work on cleaning
up the Guana Canal immedi-
ately south of Corona Road on
Saturday, May 24.
They said they were tired of
looking at all the trash that
had collected in the canal.
They did this of their on
accord with no help from
other neighbors or St. Johns


County. We commend them
for taking action to clean up
this eyesore. It now looks pris-
tine the way it should for all to
enjoy its beauty. I do hope the
whole community will appre-
ciate what they did for all of us
and HELP keep it that way.
Kudos to good neighbors,
Lorraine and Les.

GUEST COLUMNIST

Vacation safely

s our schools close for the
summer and the price of
gas continues to rise,
many residents will not be trav-
eling elsewhere for vacation.
Whether you travel or stay
close to home this summer,
stay safe. Never swim alone
and if possible swim near a
Lifeguard. If you or a family
member doesn't know how to
swim, take lessons. Many
swimmers panic if they get
caught in a rip current. If you or
a fellow swimmer finds yourself
in a rip current, don't fight it.
Swim parallel with the beach
until you are out of the current
and then swim towards the
shore. Be sure to watch your
young children constantly and
don't become distracted by talk-
ing on your cell phone, reading
or taking a nap. Your attention
should be focused on your chil-
dren at all times. Children as
well as teenagers should always
be aware of their surroundings
and if someone tries to take you
ers somewhere, quickly get. away
while yelling and screaming.
Pay attention to the posted.
signs on the beach. They are
designed for our safety as well as
to protect the environment.
Remember drinking alcohol is
not permitted on all area beach-
es. To protect your head and
neck, never dive headfirst into
the ocean. Many beaches in
this area have coquina rock
buried in the water and serious
injuries could occur when div-
ing.
The American Red Cross adds
some additional tips for beach
safety. Protect your skin:
..'Sunlight contains two kinds of :
U\ rays -- U\A increases the risk
of skin cancer, skin aging, and
other skin diseases. UVB causes
sunburn and can lead to skin
cancer. Limit the amount of
direct sunlight you receive
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and
wear a sunscreen with a sun pro-
tection factor of at least 15.
Drink plenty of water regularly
and often even if you do not feel
thirsty. Your body needs water
to keep cool. Avoid drinks with
alcohol or caffeine in them.
Watch for signs of heat stroke:
Heat stroke is life-threatening.
The person's temperature. con-
trol system, which produces
sweating to cool the body, stops
working. The body temperature
can rise so high that brain dam-
age and death may result if the
body is not cooled quickly.
Signals of heat stroke include -
Hot, red, and usually dry skin,
but in some cases such as during
athletic activity while wearing a
helmet, the skin may be moist.
Changes in consciousness.
Rapid, weak pulse, and rapid,
shallow breathing. Call 9-1-1
and move the person to a cooler
ful place. Cool the body by wrap-
ping wet sheets around the
ust take body and fan it. If you have ice
ain our packs or cold packs, place them
on each of the victim's wrists
and ankles, in the armpits and
Langen on the neck to cool the large
earn, Jr. blood vessels. Watch for signals
of breathing problems and
make sure the airway is clear
and keep the person .lying
down.
Wear eye protection.
Sunglasses are like sunscreen for
your eyes and protect against
damage that can occur from UV
rays. Be sure to wear sunglasses
with labels that indicate that
they absorb at least 90 percent
of UV sunlight. Wear foot pro-
tection. Many times, people's
feet can get burned from the
sand or cut from glass.
o During the summer months,
' we have a tendency to be com-
placent by leaving our vehicle
lar doors unlocked and windows
open. This is an obvious invita-
tion to criminals. Always close
Sour windows and lock your
doors when you go to the
beach. Remove loose change
e and valuables from your vehi-
cle. This includes purses, wal-
lets, cell-phones, laptop com-
puters and briefcases. Also, park
where people come and go to
the beach. The average criminal
does not want to be seen. If you
see something suspicious, con-
tact local law enforcement
immediately.

County

Camp aims to bridge generations


by JENNIFER KNOECHEL
STAFF WRITER

Giving the game of bridge to
the adolescent generation is
one of the activities offered at
The Players Community
Senior Center in Ponte Vedra
Beach.
The Center, located at 175
Landrum Lane, invites seniors
and adults to play bridge with
their child, grandchild and
friends in the intergenera-
tional bridge two-week mini-
camp starting Monday, June
16.
The camp is free, and no
experience is necessary. Players
will be playing bridge and
learning modern technique.
"I think young people would
enjoy bridge because it's a
social game. so they'll get a
chance to interact with people
as opposed to the electronic
games they play," said Ruth
Martin, who is planning to
attend the camp with her 15-
year-old grandson, Austin
Lockerman.
"It's a thinking game. After
they get the basics and they
get into it, I think they would
really like it."
Martin said. she first learned
how to play bridge when she
was a stay-at-home mom while
her children were young.
She went back to work as the
media specialist at Ponte

School for 28 years before retir-
ing. Now she volunteers at the
Mayo. Clinic on Friday morn-
ings before joining the adult
bridge group at the Center for
play every Friday from 1 p.m.
to 4 p.m.
"Anyone who likes chess or
board games would like
p bridge," Martin said. "But you
can't really'lea'ri in'one sitting.
This camp is a great idea."


The camp will be held 10
weekday mornings from 10
a.m. to noon from June 16 to
Friday, June 27.
Every pair of players must
include 'at least one junior
player age 10 to 26 and cur-
rently attending school.
All junior players will receive
free bridge textbooks. On the
last day of the camp there will
be a tournament for a trophy.
The fully-funded program is
cosponsored by the ACBL and
the ACBL Educational
Foundation. A minimum of
eight junior players is required
for the camp.
Call the Center at 280-3233
to register or for more informa-
tion. Preregistration is
required.
"Intergenerational activities
are important because there is
so much young people can
learn from the older genera-
tion and so much the seniors
learn from their grandchil-
dren," said Julie Wright, coor-
dinator of The Players
Community Senior Center..
"I think we really need to
not only show the respect that
comes with aging, but a rever-
ence for being an elder."
According to Generations
United, a national member-
ship organization focusing on
intergenerational activities,
the U.S. population age 65 and
older is going to double in the
next 25 years so that by 2030,
1 in 5 Americans will be age 65
and older.
Wright said currently in St.
Johns County, 1 in 5 people
are age 55 and over.
"Our programming is geared
toward seniors, but everyone is
welcome," said Wright, who
works for the St. Johns County
Council on Aging.

where from 10 tables to a
capacity 18 tables.

thej winnerg Js qletermined by
how each one plays the hand,"
said Ginny Ball.

The Beaches Green Market is open every
Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. at a new location at
Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach.
Gretchen Ferrell organizes the event and
sends a weekly newsletter to keep people updat-
ed on what they can look forward to at the mar-
ket.
The newsletter also provides information
about the Beaches Community Garden and
how to be a part of this opportunity to rent a
plot of land to grow organic produce.
Visitors to the Green Market find a variety of
fresh produce from local organic and pesticide
free farms.
Some of the offerings on a recent market day
were beans, red potatoes, fennel, squash, salad
greens, and cucumbers from Down to Earth
Organic Farm near MacClenny. Owners Kristin
and Brian Lapinski also had colorful fresh flow-
ers for sale.
Denise and Scott Francis of Twinn Bridges


Farm specialize in pesticide free produce.
Their first harvest of heirloom tomatoes from
this farm sold very quickly and they also had
carrots, lettuce, fresh herbs, and jars of home-
made salsas and sauces for sale.
Musikal Acres brought fresh organic eggs and
produce from their first spring harvest along
with fresh vegetables from other farms near
MacClenney.
Williston Blueberry Farms brought fresh
picked local blueberries. While owners Rhonda
and Jeff Groves specialize in blueberries they are
currently working with the University of Florida
on an experimental project for growing pep-
pers.
Several other stands at the Green Market offer
a variety of other interesting goods for sale.
Handmade quilts and baskets, homemade cakes
and pies, natural skin care products, live plants

Do you have pain in your feet, legs, or
low back? Do you know the difference
between nerve pain, musculoskeletal,
arthritic, and peripheral vascular pain?
Everyone experiences pain. Pain is sim-
ply your body telling you something is
damaged and it tells you this by sending
messages through your nerves to your
brain and those pains in the feet and legs
can be defined as either nerve pain, vas-
cular pain, or musculoskeletal/arthritic
pain. It is important to understand
what kind of pain you have and to make
sure you and your doctor find the best
way to relieve it. The Beach is fortunate
to have an excellent resource in Dr.
Howard Groshell of Podiatry Centers of
North Florida.
What is nerve pain? "Nerve pain or
peripheral neuropathy is a problem with
the nerves that carry information to and
from the brain and spinal cord," Dr.
Groshell explains... This produces pain,
loss of sensation, and inability to control
muscles. People with nerve pain often
report feeling something such as tingling
or pins and needles, burning, numbness,
or electrical shock-like shooting pain.
Damage to the nerves can result from
many different causes; the diabetes or
diabetic peripheral neuropathy is the
most common. Do y
What is vascular pain or peripheral
artery disease/PAD? PAD is a problem
with blood flow to the arteries usually in the
legs. Dr. Groshell says that in its early stages, a
common symptom is cramping or fatigue in
the legs and buttocks during activity. Such
cramping subsides when the person stands
still. People with PAD often have fatty
buildup in the arteries of the heart and brain.
Because of this association, most people with
PAD have a higher risk of death from heart
attack and stroke.
Vascular pain can also be caused by deep
venous thrombosis or DVT which mainly
affects the veins in the lower leg and thigh. A
clot or thrombosis forms in the larger veins of
the area. "This clot can interfere with the
blood flow and it may break off and travel
through the blood stream' arid lodge irf thh
brain, lung, heart, and severely damage that
organ," warns the doctor.
Another cause of vascular pain is varicose
veins or swollen, twisted, painful veins that fill
with an abnormal collection of blood. If not
treated, this can lead to chronic swelling in the
feet and legs, ulceration, and possible DVT.
What is musculoskeletal or arthritic pain?
"Musculoskeletal pain or arthritic pain is pain

in your muscles or joints. This pain affects
millions of people. Some common types of
pain are osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, radicu-
lopathy or pain originating from the low back,
tendinitis, and muscle sprains. People with
this pain often report the following symptoms
of aching, throbbing, swelling, muscle tender-
ness, and stiffness. A very common cause of
pain in the leg does originate from problems
in the low back such as arthritis or protrusion
of the vertebral disk causing compression on
the nerves. This will produce abnormal pain
and sensation in the lower extremity."
"Understanding your pain is the first step to
recovery," Dr. Groshell explains. "If you
exhibit any of these symptoms, call for a free
consultation and screening. Talk to your doc-
tor and decide what type of pain you have and
how best to treat it."

Panthers top Golden Eagles in spring game


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Three weeks is hardly
enough time to whip a high
school football team into
shape.
That's why spring football
practice in Florida is always
taken with a grain of salt.
"It's never as good or as bad
as you think," Nease High
football coach Danny Cowgill
said, following his team's 13-7
exhibition victory over visiting
Fleming Island.
"Spring is so short. You can't
get everything in. I didn't real-
ly know what to expect. But I
knew we would play hard
because we always do."
The host Panthers (13-2 in
2007) never trailed in two
quarters of play, jumping out
to a 13-0 lead with 4:35 to
play in the first half.
Rising junior quarterback
Tyler Weir was of 10 of 12
passing for 137 yards and two
touchdowns as the pass-orient-
ed Panthers scored or reached
the red zone on three of their
first four offensive possessions.
Weir hooked up with senior-
to-be receiver Patrick Barker
(five receptions for 86 yards)
on TD passes of 56 and 16
yards.
Sophomore fullback Ryan
Mickens and junior slotback
Matt Leighty combined for 73
rushing yards as the Panthers
logged 195 yards of total
offense in 24 minutes of play.
"Tyler threw the ball well.
And Ryan Mickens had some
punishing runs," Cowgill said
after the game, played at Nease
and in'memory of former
flenittg Island linebacker Wes
Whiddon, who died in a train
accident two weeks ago.
"We threw a lot of stuff at
them [in 20 days]. We found
out who can play and who is
going to improve."
Billed as the inaugural
spring classic, the exhibition
game featured four of the
area's top line prospects: John
Gallagher and Frank Souza of
Nease and Cory White and lan
Silberman of
Fleming
Island. "----
Gallagher, a
Wake Forest The impr(
recruit, and linebackers
White, a
Miami since the
Hurricane spring is sc
commitment,
went head-to- can definitely
head for two
quarters.
Cowgill
described the - Dann
matchup as Panthers
"strength on
strength."
While Gallagher and White
were waging war in the trench-
es, the rest of Nease's rebuilt
defense was making it tough
for the visiting Golden Eagles
to cross midfield.
The Panthers held Fleming
to 39 yards of total offense
until running back Robert
Boswell took a short pass 69
yards for a score with 3:40 to
play before halftime.

game-breaker with soft hands
arid the feet of Mercury.
The rising senior displayed
his explosiveness on the
game's opening score - a wide
receiver screen he took to the
house from 56 yards out.
Barker also scored on 16-
yard post route in the second
quarter. Leighty, lining up in
the slot and in the backfield,
added 52 all-purpose yards
and averaged 8 yards per rush
on four attempts.
Because of time constraints,
Cowgill said his team only put
in a small portion of its
offense this spring.
Nease reached Fleming
Island's 3-yard line in the sec-
ond quarter, but the 55-yard
drive ended when Weir was
picked off in the end zone.
"He got hit as he was throw-
ing," said Cowgill, whose team
will attend a passing camp this
summer.
"We moved the ball well,
but we only got to work on
our goal-line offense one day."
Cowgill said spring is all
about finding out who your 22
football players are and devel-
oping depth.
Despite losing more than
100 players to neighboring
Ponte Vedra High, the
Panthers will suit up 37 sen-
iors, 30 juniors and 37 sopho-


mores next fall.
Nease also plans to field a
freshmen team.
"I told our guys, 'We are
probably never going to play
the perfect game, and we're
not going to be satisfied until
we do,' " added Cowgill, a
1992 Nease graduate.
"We've got a lot to get better
at and we will."

Fletcher shows off


quick-strike ability


By JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCIATE EDITOR

Fletcher High displayed its
quick-strike capabilities in the
opening half of last Friday's
Gateway Conference spring
jamboree at Jack Taylor Sta-
dium in Neptune Beach.
The host Senators scored on
three plays of 50 yards or more
in a 21-15 exhibition victory
over the Mandarin Mustangs.
College prospect Deschion
Baskerville rushed for 152
yards on seven carries, includ-
ing lightning-quick touch-
down runs of 54 and 90 yards,
to stake Fletcher (8-3 in 2007)
to a 14-0 lead in the first quar-
ter.
Rising junior quarterback
Jake Medlock was 4 of 6 pass-
ing for 102 yards and one TD.
He hooked up with senior-to-
be receiver Antwoin Conerly
for a 55-yard scoring pass in
the second quarter and a 47-
yard gain in the first.
Fletcher's big-play potential
was impressive, considering
that star wideout Lamar
Scruggs, starting center Jake
Moore and returning fullback
Elisha MlcTaw sat out the con-
test with injuries.
Fletcher returns at least a
dozen starters from last year's
state playoff team and a cache
of experience at several key
positions.
Senior-to-be Andrew
Stellato, a three-year starter,
suited up at tight end and
defensive end on Friday. Rising


senior Marcus Berg also played
both ways. Returning line-
backer James Rominger
anchored-a defense that is
short on beef but long on skill
players.
Against Mandarin, the
Senators ran a diversified
offense, running behind an h-
back blocker and passing out
of multiple wide-receiver sets.
Junior-to-be Zack Reynolds,
lining up in the h-back slot,
led the way for Baskerville's
54-yard TD run. Berg's down-
field block helped spring
Baskerville on his electrifying
90-yard scoring scamper.
Baskerville (1,600 rushing
yards in 2007) also had a 40-
yard run partially erased by a
penalty.
Fletcher's defense held the
pass-oriented Mustangs to
minus-15 yards rushing, but
allowed 131 yards through the
air.
Mandarin was 10 of 17 pass-
ing with TD strikes of 19 and
51 yards. Seven of Mandarin's
throws went for first downs.
Fletcher had a chance to
snuff out a late Mustang drive,
but linebacker Taron Johnson
dropped a potential intercep-
tion.
Alex Sizemore's leaping pick
with under two minutes to
play was also negated.
Rominger, Johnson, Stellato
and Ahmad Kim recorded
sacks. Kicker Aaron Levine,
who converted three extra
points, had a touchdown-sav-
ing tackle on a kickoff.

in the same area, John
Burroughs and Al fished

caught five drum, two trout
and a dozen big croakers.
Anglers on the Mayport
Princess and King Neptune
continue to enjoy the best
bottom fishing in years. Last
Thursday on the Neptune,
anglers brought off 75 snap-
per, all weighing between four
and eight pounds. Their catch
also included a barracuda and
an excellent catch of beelin-
ers.
Both Friday-and Saturday
were also banner days. Abby
Berry got plenty of attention
on Saturday when she caught
a speedy 30-pound kingfish.
On the Mayport Princess
with Capt. George Strate
anglers also had a great week
on the snapper and grouper.
Each day anglers cleaned 25
to 30 snapper, four to six
grouper, jacks, kings and bee-
line . . . ,
