It is where they can enjoy a hot meal. They are there as the guests of Dining with Dignity. Dining with Dignity is the mission of Al Deinhart and his wife Olivia. They began serving the homeless a little after they moved to St. Augustine from Pennsylvania after retirement in 2003.

His ministry has grown from his small groups of volunteers serving meals out of the gazebo downtown to a full- edged mission of area religious and service groups. From serving meals just once or twice a month, the e ort has grown with the help of many di erent volunteer groups to be a nightly event. Dining with Dignity e orts are held under the umbrella of Home Again St. Johns, an agency comprised of religious and civic groups around St. Johns.

On August 25 the market kicked o with its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony. On hand for the ceremony were local dignitaries County Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson, County Commission Chairman Ken Bryan and St. Johns County Director of Recreation and Parks Wil Smith. There was a free drawing for gift baskets of goods and certi cates donated by the vendors. The market will be open each Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. You will nd vendors such as KYV Farm, Fresh Start Hydroponics Farm, Natural Springs Dairy Products, Cartwheel Ranch Meats, Sallas Specialty Casseroles, Hives and More, Marias Bakery and Susan Dykstra Nursery, along with many crafters, artists and ready-to-eat food vendors. Also participating in the market are the William Bartram Scenic and Historic Highway Management Council, local Girl Scouts, the Friends of Alpine Groves Park and the Garden Club of Switzerland. The vision for the market is to provide a traditional oldtime market day for the community. It is to be a fun commercial center and gathering place for entertainment, socializing and education.

The administrator is appointed by a majority of the membership of the Board of County Commissioners and is subject to Section 125.73, Florida Statutes, County Ordinance and County Administrator contract provisions (Board Rules and Policies, Page 7). The County Administrator is the administrative head of the Board of County Commissioners and is responsible for the administration of all departments of county government (with exception of the O ce of the County Attorney) which the board has authority to control pursuant to county ordinance, the general laws of Florida and other applicable legislation (Board Rules and Policies, Page 7). Along with being responsible for administration of all departments, the County Administrator is to administer and carry out the directives and policies of the Board of County Commissioners and enforce all orders, resolutions, ordinances and regulations of the board to assure that they are faithfully executed. The County Administrator is required to prepare an agenda for all board meetings and workshops in accordance with board instructions. The administrator must also attend these meetings of the board with authority to participate in the discussion of any matter and make recommendations to the board (Board Rules and Policies, Page 8). The County Administrator has the following budgetary responsibilities: Prepare and submit to the board for its consideration and adoption an annual operating budget, a capital budget and a capital program. Establish the schedules and procedures to be followed by all county departments, o ces and agencies in connection with the board budget and supervise and administer all phases of the board budgetary process. Prepare and submit to the board after the end of each scal year a complete report on the nances and administrative activities of the county for the preceding year and submit recommendations (Board Rules and Policies, Page 9). The County Administrator is to negotiate leases, contracts and other agreements, including consultant services, for the board, subject to approval of the board and make recommendations concerning the nature and location of the board funded improvements. The administrator is to see that all terms and conditions in all board leases, contracts and agreements are performed and notify the board of any noted violation thereof (Board Rules and Policies, Pg. 9). The County Administrator has the following responsibilities regarding board personnel: Recommend to the board a current position classi cation and pay plan for all positions under the board. Select, employ, supervise and ll all personnel positions of employment under the jurisdiction of the board, except those under the O ce of the County Attorney (Note: Employment of all department directors shall require con rmation by the board). Suspend, discharge or remove any non-legal employee under the jurisdiction of the board pursuant to procedures adopted by the board. Order and promptly advise the board thereof, any department or agency under the County Administrators jurisdiction to undertake any task for any other department or agency on a temporary basis when the County Administrator deems it necessary for the proper and e cient administration of the county government to do so (Board Rules and Policies, Page 10). Board instruction or directives to non-legal employees of county government under the jurisdiction and control of the Board of County Commissioners shall be issued only through the County Administrator. A County Commissioner shall not give orders or instructions, publicly or privately, to any county of- cial or employee who is subject to the direction and supervision of the County Administrator. However, interaction, communication and observance will be permitted so long as no direction is given (Board Rules and Policies, Page 10). In general, the administrator receives direction from the board and brings recommendation back to be considered by the board.County Administrators relationship with Board of County CommissionersElementary is an all-digital-learning school. Class rooms will have iPads and computers instead of text books. This will enable the students to have greater access to the wealth of learning experiences available through the World Wide Web. First grade teacher Heather Isbell displayed her enthusiasm for the program by saying, I cant explain just how excited I am to be part of this innovative school! The core curriculum is called STEM for Science, Technology, Engineering/Environment and Math. Not to be forgotten though is a real library. Principal Campbell believes in a strong reading program and recognizes the need to blend digital with the feelings of reading an actual book. He believes it is important to experience the curiosity a student has when they can browse the shelves of a library and choose a book, physically putting it in the hands of a student to experience ipping real pages. Currently physical education activities and music are included in the curriculum with foreign languages to be added in the near future. One special activity surely will be a highlight in the students daythe Lego Lab. The Lego Education Program is a special program speci cally designed to use the world recognized toys to enhance the learning experience and curiosity of students. The school, located at 355 Palencia Village Drive, just east of U.S. Highway 1 in the Palencia community, contains approximately 100,000 square Principal Don Campbell and rst grade teacher Heather Isbell.Palencia Elementary cont. on pg. 5 Palencia Elementary cont. from pg. 1to serve dinner to the homeless on the fourth Saturday of each month. They are a small group of volunteers who take turns with the church youth going down to St. Augustine to serve. Several area eateries and grocery stores help out with donations of food. An evening involves the guests being served helping to set up tables, unloading the food from the cars and cleaning up after dinner. The whole event takes just a little over an hour. Also involved in the Dining with Dignity mission are volunteers and groups from Swiss Cove Christian Church, San Juan Del Rio Catholic Church, Celebration Lutheran Church and Helping Hands. More groups and volunteers are joining in the mission each month. The e orts of Dining with Dignity have helped achieve the new one-stop center for the homeless on County Road 207, for which ground breaking recently took place. The facility will have a full kitchen, social services and help for those trying to get back on their feet. More groups are always welcome to join in. Its very rewarding and a very easy way to help our community. If you have a restaurant and would like to donate food that would also be extremely helpful.

As I visited schools the rst week, including 14 on the rst day, I found students already engaged in learning and many parents present in our schools, volunteering to ll in the gaps for our teachers. I am so appreciative of the can do attitude of our parents and community members who step up to make sure our schools have everything they need to enhance our students learning and to provide the extra hands that free up our teachers to focus on each of the children in their classes. Our number one ranking year after year is a direct result of the great generosity of these ne people who give so freely of their time and resources. For the rst time, our district has received applications for charter schools that are run by for-pro t companies. These schools, unlike our current charter schools, are run by large companies that bene t nancially from the schools. On August 28, our School Board heard presentations from three new applicants seeking to bring charters to our county. Both Somerset Academy K-8 and Somerset Academy 9-12 are run by Academica. Kids Community College Elementary Charter School at St. Johns County, Inc. is run by Kids Community College. The board and the district sta had several concerns that were presented to the companies. Meetings will be held with both groups to address the questions raised. On September 25, a special School Board meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. to either approve or deny each of the new charters. As always, the public is welcome to attend the meeting and address the board. There are a few changes to schedules that need to be highlighted. A small change to this years school calendar has been employed in order to allow upper level students to complete their nal exams before Winter Break. The rst day of the break will now be December 24, and students will return to class on January 7, 2013. Because of the high stakes of end of course exams, our high schools requested that we make the change so that students could take the exams when the information was fresh, giving our students their best chance for success. Another schedule change is the time of the September and October School Board meetings. Because of numerous awards and recognitions involving both students and faculty, we will hold both those meetings in the evening, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The September meeting is on 11th, and Octobers meeting will be on the 9th, both at the evening hour. I want to take the personal Dear Editor, I care about underage drinking prevention because quite frankly I am tired of attending funerals. Im writing to express my concern about the availability of alcohol to youth in our community. This is not a coming-of-age issue; rather, this is a health issue that can have a devastating impact on our youth and their loved ones. Research has shown that those who begin drinking alcohol before the age of 15 are 6.6 times more likely than those who start at age 21 and older to develop alcohol problems.[SAMSHA. (2011). Results from the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Summary of national ndings.] This consequence is understandable, as brain development continues until age 25. Underage alcohol use most often occurs at home or the home of your childs friend. [SAMSHA. (August 28, 2008). Underage alcohol use: Where do young people drink? The NSDUH report.] Underage drinkers are able to purchase or obtain alcohol from relatives and friends at a high rate. In 2010, among 12to 20-year-olds who drank: More than one in four, got it for free from a nonrelative age 21 or older; 14.6 percent got it for free from another underage person; 5.9 percent got it from a parent or guardian; and 8.5 percent got it from another relative age 21 or older. [SAMSHA. (November 20, 2008). Underage alcohol use: Where do young people get alcohol? The NSDUH report.] Parents, family and community members can help limit access to alcohol by not providing alcohol to youth. Retail establishments can conduct beverage server training, not sell to underage youth and reduce the appeal of overconsumption with happy hour restrictions. Reducing the density of alcohol outlets can result in fewer drinking-related problems. Underage drinking contributes to costly health and social problems, including tra c fatalities, suicide, physical and sexual assaults, brain impairment, alcohol dependence, academic problems, and alcohol and drug poisoning Be part of the solution. PACT will present Be a Parent, Not a Friend Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, September 20 from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Bartram Trail High School. Speakers include Sheri Shoar, Superintendent Dr. Joyner, Judge Berger, Dr. Scott and author Toren Volkmann From Binge to Blackout.

The election was a great learning experience in my life and I was blessed to meet many wonderful people along the way. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to experience the electoral process at the federal level. Now I am blessed to resume my full time work with the School Board.

It was constructed as part of the districts Five-Year Building Plan and funded through a $16 million Quali ed School Construction Bond. Palencia Elementary is the rst green school in St. Johns County seeking to receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certi cation. As part of this e ort the school is striving to become a zero waste facility by achieving 100 percent recycling. It makes ice during the night which is used during the day to chill the building. Air quality is monitored constantly throughout the building. Currently a grant is being sought from Florida Power and Light to add solar panels to the building. The kitchen is high tech and serves everything home cooked, including vegetables that are grow onsite in a hydroponic garden. Principal Campbell, or as he may be come to be called Captain Campbell by the Palencia Pirates, said of his steering this project into realization, It is such a privilege to have the opportunity to open such a fantastic state-of-the-art futuristic school in St. Johns County. So keep your eye on the horizon for the Pirates of Palencia as they set sail on an adventure of learning in their futuristic new ship.Palencia Elementary cont. from pg. 4 need customers?sales@thecreekline.com

I would ask all of you to take extra time and be extremely careful in school zones as well as at bus stops. Motorists should plan on longer commutes and follow the speed limit in school zones. Deputies will be at school zones throughout the county to monitor those zones and to address any violations accordingly. Drivers need to be advised that speeding nes are doubled if they occur in a school zone. Deputies will also be in unmarked vehicles seeking any motorists who pass stopped school buses while loading or unloading students. Remember all tra c in both directions must come to a complete stop for school buses that are stopped, displaying the stop signal. Motorists Back to school safetytraveling in the opposite direction are exempt from stopping if the roadway is separated by a median of at least ve feet wide. These infractions will be strictly enforced. Motorists are also reminded to take extra precaution at school bus stops where eager youngsters, many riding the bus for the rst time, may dart into the street as the bus arrives. Here are some safety rules to pass along to children that ride a school bus: Arrive at your bus stop at least ve minuets early and stand at least 10 feet away from the roadway. Be sure to wait until the bus stops, the door opens and the bus driver says its all right to enter before stepping onto the bus. Be careful that the clothing with drawstrings and book bags with straps or dangling objects do not get caught in the handrail or door when exiting the bus. Walk in front of the bus, never behind the bus. Remember if you cant see the bus driver, he or she cannot see you. After getting o the school bus, stop at the edge of the bus and look both ways before crossing. If you were to drop something beside the bus, make sure to you tell the driver before attempting to pick it up. Students who walk to school should do so on a sidewalk if it is available. If there is no sidewalk, students should walk against the ow of tra c and be sure to cross at marked crosswalks. Those who ride a bicycle should remember to ride with the ow of tra c and follow all tra c signs and signals. Remember students are required to wear a bicycle helmet. Now that schools are open for another year, please take the extra time needed and watch out for our most precious resource, our children. As I close this month, I would like to remind you that there is a wealth of information that you can obtain by visiting our website at www. sjso.org.

The subject at hand is the incessant telephone calls from political candidates begging and exhorting likely voters to vote for them because their opponent is not only a bad person, but probably beats their dog, too. Mandarin has witnessed one of the nastiest, loudest, most disgusting Republican primaries for the Florida Senate in decades. The real reason for the nastiness is the candidates each supported a di erent candidate for the future presidency of the Florida Senate, bringing out a lot of big guns far beyond local issues. The winner most likely will cast a deciding vote over who will be the Senate President in the future. Civility was never part of this process and it enforced many voters stereotypes about politicians. But, peace has reigned over the land for now. Things are already becoming overheated for the presidential election in November. Now that there is an o cial nominee from each major party, some serious campaigning will envelope the land. You thought things have been intense up to this point? Childs play, compared to what will come in October and early November. Keep in mind a couple of things: First, the only polls which count are those polls which talk to likely voters. Many polls use registered voters, but, since we know seldom do many registered voters actually vote, its likely voters who almost always vote. They are the bellwether, not registered voters. Second, dig down into poll numbers you read and nd out how the poll is weighted between registered Republicans, registered Democrats and Independents or voters of other minority parties. If a pollster asks questions of too many Republicans versus what the actual population mix is, then the poll will be falsely skewed towards a Republican outcome. The same is true for Democrats. Polling is a science and it takes trained professional pollsters to understand how to construct a survey instrument (the poll), how to get honest answers from those polled and then, how to interpret those answers. As an example, with an incumbent, you can look at their poll numbers and, even if they are leading, it is important to look at how much is stacked against them. Even if they are leading, if more is stacked against them than for them, they are likely to ultimately lose. Its also important to know about undecideds. Every honest pollster will tell you when it gets down to time in the voting booth, undecideds will ultimately vote for the challenger, not the incumbent. If they were for the incumbent, they probably wouldnt be undecided in the rst place. And, one nal word.

Regarding child-watch fees, Mr. Lansdale incorrectly stated a majority of the supervisors resisted an increase because it was unreasonable. A potential rate increase was discussed, but no vote was taken as any increase in fees requires a properlynoticed rate hearing. During an upcoming rate hearing, the board will determine with public input if a fee increase is warranted. Understanding this, the FY 2013 budget does not re ect a hypothetical increase. Repeatedly, Mr. Lansdales comments regarding budget increases fail to recognize the addition of new recreational facilities. Not only is the comparison of the preand post-expansion budgets illogical, it is misleading. Expansion of amenities was done with public input and an understanding that a much larger sta would be required for proper operation, which necessitated a signi cantly larger payroll. No CDD employee has Letter to the Editorreceived an increase in base pay over the past three years, unless their duties changed substantially. And, contrary to Lansdales comments, a salary study was conducted to the satisfaction of a majority of the board. Mr. Lansdale continually suggests he is the only scallyminded Supervisor. In fact, all of the Supervisors have worked diligently to keep assessments low, while maintaining the high quality of our amenities. I believe Mr. Lansdales e ectiveness as a Supervisor could be enhanced by spending more time working towards solutions with the rest of the board and less time publishing in ammatory columns, which are divisive in our community. Brad Nelson, Supervisor JCP CDD Board of Supervisors Dear Editor, I am a former Supervisor of the JCP CDD concerned that the current board is out of touch with whats going on around them. Many JCP residents are coping with low property values, underwater mortgages, high foreclosure rates, unemployment, higher living expenses and no raises or bonuses. Yet, the CDD board wont implement a plan for better operating ef- ciency to reduce CDD assessments. The board also refuses to investigate whats fair compensation or reasonable employee sta ng levels. Were even subsidizing some operating costs (like babysitting) while parents enjoy themselves taking lessons, working out, eating or drinking soft or hard beverages. A candidate for the November election is so out of touch saying (in a 2011 email to the board) Im hoping that JCP continues to be a Families Come First community and if complainers wish to not be bothered by programs that support family friendly activities, perhaps they should live in retirement communities instead. How charming! If you disagree with the present board/special interests and cant cough up more O&M assessment money, you can move to a retirement Letter to the Editorhome. This same candidate also said, to contemplate reducing their [Loggerhead Aquatics] access to training facilities is completely unreasonable and short-sighted. The obvious sentiment being the recreation center is for the primary bene t of swim teams rather than everyones enjoyment. Whos short sighted? On November 6, lets elect two new supervisors who are more interested in keeping costs as low as possibleotherwise well have two new supervisors more interested in protecting bene ts for special interests.

Have you met the new general manager? His name is Edd Mooney (yes, he spells it with a double d). Mooney has many years of experience owning and operating resorts as well as retail operations in Texas, Georgia and abroad in Great Britain. His management background is broad in scope and he was a semi-professional soccer player in South Africa in the early 1980s. He has been a franchisee directing the day-to-day operation of Baskin Robbins UK as well as general manager of a Texas resort with golf, tness, aquatics, spa, restaurant and marina. In short, Mooney brings a wealth of experience to our general manager position. Your CDD Board of Supervisors is keeping your assessments at levels lower than any amenitized CDD in northeast Florida. At the public hearing in August, the board adopted the Fiscal Year 2013 budget. After keeping annual assessments constant at $830 in 2011 and 2012, the board reduced the single family home assessment by approximately $70 e ective October 1, 2012. The new annual assessment will be $760 for single family households. Commercial land assessments will be reduced by a comparable rate. No programs have been eliminated; management has worked diligently to nd cost savings. Capital reserve funding levels have been met in accordance with an independent report prepared by Dreux Isaac and Associates. We will continue to improve our operations and budgeting process, while maintaining excellent customer service. The board authorized underwriters to begin the process to re nance the Series 2002 bonds. MBS Capital Markets LLC is in negotiations with lenders to re nance the bonds at a lower rate. This will reduce debt service assessments for single family households by $20 to $35, dependent on the agreed upon terms and rates. Although the term of the bonds may be shortened, there will not be an extension of the expiration date. We are focused on paying o CDD long-term debt. Closing on the re nancing will likely occur in November 2012. There are two Board of Supervisor positions on the November 2012 ballot. Please learn the opinions of the residents who are running for election to these seats. The CDD will provide a chance for you to meet them and hear their views. We will host a Meet The Candidate Night on October 9, 2012 at 7:30 p.m., immediately following the monthly public meeting. This is your chance to listen, ask questions and decide who might best represent you on the JCP CDD Board of Supervisors for the next four years.

The community volunteer helps the public to gain insight into how poison centers save lives and hundreds Lately in our weekly sales meetings our Realtors have been sharing the kinds of stories weve havent heard in quite awhile. That is the Tale of the Home that Got Away. The market is heating up and buyers are actually missing out on the homes they want because they are not moving quickly enough or underbidding. It seems that the tide is shifting away from the buyers market. The primary reasons for that are reduced inventory and pent up demand. People are nally buying homes again and there are fewer to choose from. Recent statistics from the Northeast Florida Association of Is it the end of the buyers market?By Contributing Writer Sherry Davidson, President, Davidson Realty, Inc.Realtors (NEFAR) shows: Pending sales are up more than 17 percent from the same time last year. The price range with the largest increase in pending sales is the $1 Million Plus category with a 39 percent increase. Inventory continues to decline and is down about 30 percent from the same period last year. In June there was six months supply of inventory a ve to six month inventory represents a balanced market. Although closings have still not caught up with the surge in pending sales that has occurred over the last three months, transactions are simply taking longer to close. The takeaway for homebuyers is to be prepared to act quickly when they nd the right home. Were recommending buyers get preapproved, not just pre-quali ed, before starting their home search. Also, if its truly your dream home, make a strong opening o er. The biggest mistake is that buyers are still in the mindset that its a distressed housing market and they are in the drivers seat. The truth is, great homes at fair prices are being snapped up quickly. The market is more balanced and home buyers need to come prepared. Poison Center seeks community volunteersof dollars on unnecessary doctor and emergency room visits related to accidental poisonings. The community volunteer plays an invaluable role in providing our community with needed education highlighting the free, professional services of the Poison Center, states Vicki Coppen, RN, education coordinator.

Business executives have used coaching for decades to increase productivity, strengthen management skills and address managerial issues. Today, coaching is o ered in a variety of areas. Coaching can be used to improve organizational and conversational skills, relationships and careers. But what is coaching exactly? How does it di er from counseling and how does one choose a coach? Coaching helps clients identify, set and reach speci c goals that make life or work better. Coaches use strategies and action plans, along with accountability and reinforcement to identify the obstacles to reaching their goals and together they create a plan for overcoming them. Who uses coaching? Job seekers use coaching for career decision-making and to increase hiring potential. Couples use coaching to build stronger relationships. Managers use coaching to strengthen interpersonal and supervisory skills to improve departmental functioning within the workplace. Individuals use coaching to improve organizational skills Women want answers and dialogue about breast cancer from area physicians and experts. In order to expand to accommodate more women, the fth annual Pink Ribbon Symposium will be held at the Hyatt-Jacksonville (formerly held in Orange Park) on Saturday, October 6 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Founded by Drs. Cynthia Anderson and Linda Sylvester, it is proudly presented by Cancer Specialists of North Florida and F.R.O.G. (Florida Radiation Oncology Group). The event will present important up-to-date information about breast cancer prevention, early detection and treatment options, the side e ects of treatment, survivorship, plus good health and wellness topics. This years special guest is former Olympic gold medal winner Peggy Fleming, also a breast cancer survivor. She will share her triumph on the ice, as well as ghting the disease in an up-close and very personal way. The symposium is free and guests will enjoy the Event Expo and be treated to a delicious, healthy continental breakfast. You will learn how to care for your body, how sleep can a ect your treatment and how best to deal with relationships including family and friends. This year the symposium will o er one session in Spanish. The schedule is as follows: 8:00 a.m. 9:00 a.m.: Meet and Greet (Doors Open, Registration, Exhibits, TaTa Cha Cha) 9:00 a.m. 9:30 a.m.: Opening remarks from Founders Drs. Cynthia Anderson and Linda Sylvester 9:40 a.m. 10:20 a.m.: Breakout Session I: Plastic Surgery: Exploring Reconstruction Options; Breast Cancer: How Pathology Makes A Di erence; Survivors Panel: Meeting And Talking To Other Survivors; or Caring For Our Bodies: Nutrition And You 10:30 a.m. 11:10 a.m.: Breakout Session II: Hereditary Breast Cancer for Men And Women; Being a Caregiver: How to Find Support; Exercise: How Do I Get Started?; Coaching vs. counselingBy Contributing Writer Dr. Jenny Preffer, PhD, LMHC, ACS, RN, North Florida Counseling and Mediation Services, LLCso they can spend more time with family or in leisure activities or to achieve personal goals like running a marathon, losing weight or writing a book. High school students use coaching to make college decisions while college students focus coaching on de ning and reaching occupational or career goals. Coaching is not counseling or therapy, however. Counseling is personal and focuses on individual and family problems of the past that continue to a ect the di erent areas of daily life. It focuses on addressing and working through the emotional pains that in uences personal and professional relationships. In contrast, coaching does not deal with emotional issues and instead concentrates on identifying and meeting goals. Coaching services are usually o ered in packages that extend over several months because research shows change occurs over time. Coaching is an investment of time and money so choosing the right coach is critical. Ask prospective coaches about their credentials and education. Coaching is a non-regulated profession anyone can call themselves a coach. Some organizations o er training programs and credentials, but states do not license coaches. Ask about the coachs background and what experience they have that quali es them to coach in a particular area. Licensed counseling professionals are often well equipped to o er life or relationship coaching, while professionals who have been involved in upper level business management, human resources and career counseling generally are wise choices for career coaching services. Dont forget to ask business or career coaches how they stay up-todate on whats happening in the career and business world.

It was a very smooth opening day with the only hiccup being the weather, when sudden downpours in the area delayed the busses from arriving and loading in the afternoon. Thanks to the help of all LPA teachers, sta and volunteers, new students were able to get their schedules, nd their classrooms, obtain lockers and planners and simply nd their way around. As usual, all involved in the LPA community jumped in to help, jump starting another wonderful year at Liberty Pines Academy.

The Orangedale Homemakers donated $243.30 to the newly formed community association. In 1978 the cemetery did not even have a fence. During the rst few years the association held membership drives, turkey shoots, sh fries, sold wood cut from trees in the Well-known speaker, book coach and consultant Rik Feeney will address the Ancient City Chapter of the Florida Writers Association on Saturday, September 15 at the St. Johns County Main Library, located at 1960 Ponce de Leon Blvd in St. Augustine.

There are 44,000 children receiving treatments for cancer each year in the United States and many more that are in remission with the hopes they have nally beaten this nasty disease. Here in the Jacksonville area, kids with cancer are receiving treatments at Wolfson Childrens Hospi-Bring a smile to a child who needs one!By Contributing Writer Leslie Warner, Jacksonville Coordinator, ConKerr Cancer Members of Girl Scout Troop 1146 and Cadette Troop 108 display some of the pillowcases they made for local kids being treated for cancer.tal, Nemours Childrens Clinic and UF/Shands Proton Therapy Center. And over 100 children are in the wonderful care of Peds Care, a pediatric palliative care division of Northeast Florida Hospice. All of these kids are courageously facing the treatments, doctor visits, surgeries and side e ects and trying to live their lives as normally as possible. It is amazing how the little things can bring a smile to their faces, like receiving a custom made pillowcase that re ects the things they love. ConKerr Cancer is a nationwide charitable organization that focuses solely on bringing smiles to kids facing cancer or other life-changing illnesses through the gift of a bright, cheerful, fun pillowcase, made by someone in their community. It is a simple thing when you consider the enormous challenge of beating cancer, but it has an immediate positive impact. It is amazing to see the smiles on the faces of the kids who receive these pillowcases, as well as the joy it brings to their parents when seeing that smile. Some of the children will refuse to sleep on any other pillowcase because it is so special to them. The Jacksonville chapter of ConKerr Cancer delivers about 150 pillowcases each month to all four of the centers/organizations listed above. They rely on the generosity of community members to make this happen. Volunteers who love to sew can design and sew the cases. Volunteers who dont know how to sew can learn quickly, since a pillowcase is the rst project in most sewing classes and is very simple to do! We have Girl Scout troops and church youth groups learn this skill while completing a community service project. Volunteers who have no inclination to sew can purchase the bright fun fabric that is needed to keep this supply of pillowcases going. And of course, money is always welcome to fund the purchase of additional fabric. We often dont have enough fabric to supply all those who are willing to sew. Each September, ConKerr Cancer sponsors their Miles of Pillowcase Smiles event with a nationwide goal of collecting 44,000 pillowcases one for each child receiving treatment. Our goal in Jacksonville is to collect 600 in September. The Jacksonville Quilt Fest in late September provides an opportunity for festival visitors to sew pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer and we need lots of fabric to support this e ort! If you are interested in volunteering in some way, or want to nd out more about how you might use this as a community service opportunity for your church, youth group or womens group, please contact Jacksonville Coordinator Leslie Warner at case4smilesjax@comcast.net or 230-9485.

The other rst day gures were Landrum Middle School with 1,235, Murray Middle School with 709, Pacetti Bay Middle School with 986, Gamble Rogers Middle School with 813 and Switzerland Point Middle School with 1,137. Liberty Pines Academy, the districts only permanent K-8 school, had a rst day headcount of 1,191. The elementary school population totaled 11,559; however, this count includes less than 25 percent of the kindergarten population since schools stagger the kindergarten start date over a ve-day period. Another 259 students are enrolled at the districts alternative and charter schools. Today was a wonderful rst day of school throughout the district, said Superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner. The outstanding planning and preparation by principals, teachers and support sta was evident in the schools I visited and instruction was already taking place in the classrooms. Our maintenance and custodial sta s had the schools in immaculate condition and our food service team was very well prepared. I am extremely grateful for the e orts of everyone to make today special and welcome our students into this years learning environment. I am also very appreciative of our transportation department and the St. Johns County Sheri s O ce for making sure our children got to school and home safely, he added. Todays weather presented an additional challenge, but once again our sta stepped up to the plate to ensure that everyone was safe. Finally, our parents are the very best and much of our success today is attributed to their cooperation and support. The St. Johns County School District Transporta on Department will begin the 2012-2013 school year with 162 school buses serving approximately 19,000 children each day. This will include 36 special needs buses and 126 regular route buses.Want to see your schools news in The CreekLine?Send it in! Email articles & photos to editor@thecreekline.com

Homework requirements, packed schedules, extracurricular activities and even shorter hours of daylight are only a few things that make this time of year a transitional time for families. In fact, research shows that 85 percent of teens report their stress levels are a ecting their school performance. There are simple habits that parents can adopt to help reduce stress, both for themselves and for their children during the school year, says education and parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba, who is the bestselling author of 22 parenting books and a frequent TODAY show contributor. Follow these easy tips to ensure the school year is a success for all members of the family. Promote the positive: Children take cues from their parents on how to handle and react to stress. Help promote positive feelings within the family by discussing whats happening each day while around the dinner table and by posting handwritten notes of encouragement around the house or in your childrens lunchboxes. Research also shows that praising your childs hard work and e orts rather than the Starting the school year o right: Backto-school tips for the whole familydesired outcome enhances their achievement. For example, aim to give more words of encouragement commending your children on time spent studying for a big test rather than the actual score they receive on that test. Develop a shared calendar: The school year means sporting events, music lessons, after-school activities and PTA meetings all at once. One central calendar is crucial to keeping everyone on track and remembering appointments, says Dr. Borba. Try creating a color-coded family command center to keep everyone organized. Include a family calendar for tracking schedules, family note boards for sharing messages and a storage area for saving important documents that will be needed at a later date. Keeping track of all the activities will help all family members feel more at ease, reducing stress. Get enough sleep: Waking up early in the morning for school, combined with maintaining late hours for sporting practices, after-school activities or homework quickly translates into exhaustion. Sleep is fundamental to your entire well-being, says Dr. Borba. Keeping children on consistent sleep schedule on weekends and school vacations also promotes healthy long-term sleep habits. Become familiar with speci c stress-reduction techniques: Every person handles stress in di erent ways, especially when it comes to kids and teenagers. Dr. Borba recommends helping your children pinpoint habits and activities that help them reduce stress, and set aside time to do these activities with them. Your teenage daughter may respond positively to yoga classes as a form of stress relief, while the long, deep breaths required to blow bubbles can be calming for many young children.

Instead of begging mom or dad for something they wanted at the grocery store, they encouraged their parents to buy canned goods for the people in need in their area.

Durbin Kids Care Club Empowering kids to give backprime locations in both of the large Durbin Crossing amenity centers, the Durbin Kids Care Club has been able to supply a need and learn a valuable lesson in community outreach. Heather Patterson, the originator of this program, said that she wanted to give the kids an understanding at an early age that there are other children out there in need and that they could do something about it. Camryn Simmons, an 11-year-old sixth grader at Swiss Point said, Being part of the Kids Care Club makes me feel good about myself because I know I am helping other people. Tyler Patterson, a sevenyear-old second grader at Hickory Creek said, I like being part of the Kids Care Club because I help make other kids dreams come true. Just recently the club collected clothing and shoes for a mission trip to Haiti. The participants of this trip were able to bring nine large suitcases lled with clothing, shoes and hats that went straight to a Haitian orphanage. The club also collected school supplies to be donated to the Tools for School, a non-pro t organization that serves St. Johns County in conjunction with the St. Johns County Educational Foundation. The club has also been able to reach out to other communities on County Road 210 and in Julington Creek through their Facebook page with over 125 members. The page helps keep everyone informed and updated about upcoming events and the successes of previous drives. The clubs mission statement says it all: The Durbin Kids Care Club was formed to empower children, who live in the St. Johns County, Florida area, to make a better world through hands-on service projects. It is our hope that through these projects, children will gain an enhanced awareness of others and develop a compassionate, giving spirit. We equip parents, teachers and youth leaders with the resources they need to involve kids in the good works that will mean a brighter future for all.

CPS remotes, or clickers as some students and teachers have called it, have been utilized in the classroom for many years. Each remote has a keypad where students can type in an answer to a question on a projector screen and send it to their teacher. The teacher can take their answers and use them for grading or class feedback in the form of percentages. But this year marks a change in the use of the familiar technology. Now, students will have their own clicker and take it to their various classes. By having the response system, students can come into the class and as soon as the class begins they can take a quiz, states Robert Bruns, the AP World History and AP Art In late August, after a summer of quiet preparation, Allen D. Nease High School was buzzing with anticipation once more as students rushed in to pick up schedules, tour the school and attend orientations. Nerves were rattling for upcoming freshmen and those returning to the school had their hopes high for a successful new school year. Im making goals for myself to reach, said Sid Carter, a Nease High School sophomore. Im preparing myself to do the very best I can because if I dont I am sure I will regret it later. When asked about how his sophomore year will di er from his freshman year, Carter said, Now I know what I can change for the better this year based on my past mistakes.Nease HappeningsStudents nd preparation crucial for new school yearBy Samuel Wright, Nease StudentThis seemed to be the mood surrounding most high school students at this time of year. The beginning of the school year is an ideal time for students to be opportunistic by preparing to amend any problems that they experienced the year before. However, that is only a small part of the preparation and groundwork that students should have made before school began. For the past few months, students have spent their time by the pool reading classics such as Dickens Great Expectations and Steinbecks Of Mice and Men. In late August, students like Noah Bower, a pre-IB (International Baccalaureate) freshman, were wrapping up their summer homework and projects and were appreciative of the early work that helped set them up for success in advance. I feel pretty good about it [the upcoming school year] and I have done all my summer assignments in order to prepare. Hopefully middle school has prepared me enough for IB and for now I feel the work load is just right, Bower said con dently. Con dence and personal success is exactly what the students will need this year to attain a sense of accomplishment and to feel satis ed when they walk out the door next June. Whatever is in store, it can be said that the 2012-2013 school year will be a very exciting and important roller-coaster ride for the students at Allen D. Nease High School. BTHS HappeningsCPS Response system dons a new role at Bartram TrailBy Kelly Boyer, BTHS StudentHistory teacher. At that point, the teacher and students can engage in a thoughtful discussion about the questions and the answers. Classes often have a tendency where the smartest students in the class answer all the questions for everyone else, because no one wants to speak up. With the CPS Response system, this habit may come to a screeching halt. Bruns agrees that things may change, claiming It will make [students] feel more comfortable about being honest with a response during lecture because nobody knows how the next person responded to the question. With the system, a student can tell when someone submits their answer, but no one except the teacher knows what each student answered. The feedback given is more honest and truthful, so no one knows if a certain student got the answer right or wrong at rst glance. With the arrival of this technology, other schools in the following years can possibly learn from and work o BTHSs example. We will be the model high school for this type of technology use that is already in the colleges, boasts Bruns, We are the only school in the nation currently doing this program. Seventeen AP classes and one Honors class will take advantage of this technology for the 2012-2013 school year. For a complete list of classes, visit the BTHS webpage at wwwbths.stjohns.k12. .us. Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons will be celebrating World Retina Week from September 20 through 26. The retina is the layer of cells in the back of the eye that are responsible for detecting light, which essentially allows you to see. The retina is composed of millions of light sensitive, specialized cells known as rods and cones. These rods and cones work together to convert images into electrical energy, and channels that image to your brain. Diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration dominate my practice and are prevalent in North Florida, says Dr. Russell Pecoraro, retina specialist with Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons. Macular degeneration is the number one cause of severe vision loss for those ages 55 and older and World Retina Week is in Septembera ects more than 10 million Americans. In the age group on 45 to 60, diabetic eye disease is the leading cause of blindness. Dr. Pecoraro is a board certi ed ophthalmologist and one of the only full-time retina specialists in Clay County. Since joining the practice, he and his partners have established the Northeast Florida Macular Degeneration and Diabetes Eye Institute, the rst full-time center in Clay County dedicated to diseases of the retina. In the Institute, patient care is focused around management of complex eye diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Along with highly trained sta this specialty center o ers the latest in diagnostic testing and treatment. Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons o ers comprehensive eye care in the following specialties: cataract surgery, cornea surgery, medical retina, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration, glaucoma surgery, Lasik surgery, cosmetic eye procedures, pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric eye exams.

I will have their recommendations to share in our next issue. There are several new books that have been released this month that are very newsworthy! Margaret Peterson Haddix has The Missing series. The rst book is Found, the fth in the series is Caught. She is a mastermind of cli hangers. If you havent ever read one of her books this series is a must. Another new book to be sure to read is Gordon Kormans Ungifted. If you have never read a Gordon Korman book you need to pick up Schooled. Somehow I have a feeling from the summary of his book that this is going to be another one to join Schooled as a dont miss it book. Will share my opinion on it next month! Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead, author of the Newbery medal book When You Reach Me, is once again set in New York with the main character back again as he meets a new neighbor who considers himself a spy. It is de nitely on my to read list. I am anxiously awaiting the latest 39 Clues book of the Cahills vs Vespers: Shatterproof by Roland Smith. I just found out that I,Q: Kitty Hawk is out. I cant wait to read it. This is another amazing series by Roland Smith. I just cant believe he has two books that were published the same month. Remember the cool book, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda? Well the third one is now out, The Secret of the Fortune WookAs the Florida sun churned out its last batch of sunburned teens, many Creekside students began cracking open books, dusting o old binders and locating where in their house they last saw their backpacks. Many students had summer bucketlists, lled with activities like trips, parties at the beach, movie marathons, sleepovers and the occasional sporting event. Many of these summer bucket-lists went into full swing during orientation, the summer equivalent of a mid-life-crisis. However, through all of the last-minute summer fun, students knew the looming school year would demand some serious preparation. If the intimidation of a new school year wasnt enough, a few students had to worry about an entirely new school and age group. But a magic carpet ride is not expected as one enters this whole new world. I think the biggest di erence will be the amount of time we have to complete the assignments, speculated rising fresh-CHS HappeningsCreekside students go back to schoolBy Sarah Schreck, CHS Studentman Julie Brown. In middle school we could have a day after because we forgot to bring it in. I think high school will be only half credit if its turned in late. She didnt do anything special to prepare because she might be preparing for the wrong things. This is a reasonable caution, as one can never be sure of a teachers lesson plan or style of teaching. Summer assignments can give one a good look into planning for the school year and teachers websites can give some organizational insight. (Of course, students can also nd their teachers making the annual pilgrimage to Staples or O ce Depot a few weeks before school, but that may be considered too much research, too early.) Other than summer projects (like navigating Moby Dick or conjuring up ashcards), some students had other arrangements to worry about. Being section leader has required a lot of preparation and planning on my part. Instead of just being responsible for my own progress, I was suddenly responsible for the progress of 30 other people, said Brianna Casey, the main clarinet section leader in the Power of Creekside marching band. During the last week of summer, there were hundreds of band students hard at work, marching under the oppressive August sun for hours on end, learning the upcoming years halftime show. Being a band o cer during the turbulent marching season demands a lot of hard work, but there arent any textbooks or worksheets out on the eld! I was forced to plan sectionals and learn the new music weeks ahead of time in order to be able to teach it to everyone else, Casey shared. Im learning and improving along with my section. But there has been a de nite di erence between learning for my own sake and learning with the intention of helping others. Its been a lot of fun, though. Notes from the Pacetti Bay Media CenterBy Contributing Writer Lynn Johnson, NBCT, Library Media Specialist, Pacetti Bay Middle Schooliee. The boys especially love these books. Who doesnt want to read something that takes us back to the Star Wars days? I just nished Lost in the River of Grass by Ginny Rorby, another one of the SSYRA books. Wow, my initial reaction was quickly replaced by a total turn around. I could not put the book down. There were excellent messages in the story and I learned so much about the Everglades. If you are looking for a believable story, no it is not believable, but it is well worth the time spent reading. I also read 90 Miles to Havana by Enrique Flores. This is the story of three brothers that were part of Operation Pedro Pan coming to Miami from Cuba. The youngest of the three, Julian, is very resourceful and manages to rise above his circumstances in spite of everything that comes his way. It was a very eye-opening story and speaks of bullying and what happens when you lower yourself to their level. Be sure to check out the Florida Heritage Book Festival September 13-15 in St. Augustine. There is a wonderful line up of authors presenting during this time. New location near Baptist South!

The Home Access Center (HAC) is a web-based application that is part of the Student Information system, eSchoolPlus. The HAC portal is now available to registered parents and/or guardians. The HAC portal provides parents and students with a daily summary page of student information including schedule and attendance, discipline information, class New technology helps parents of students stay informedwork, test scores, grades and course requests. It also allows students to view their own records in the system to help keep them informed and actively participating in their progress. The HAC portal enables parents the ability to receive timely information to support and monitor their childrens academic progress, said Bruce Patrou, chief information and technology o cer, SJCSD. This portal serves as an excellent additional tool to communicate information, but should not be considered the only form of interaction with the school. All schools in grades three through 12 will be participating in HAC starting this year (exceptions may apply to charter and DJJ schools). In addition, Liberty Pines Academy, Crookshank Elementary and Hickory Creek Elementary will be piloting HAC for parents with children starting kindergarten.

Veterinarian Owned and Operated Helping Hands of St. Johns County will be meeting on Friday, September 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Faith Community Church Community Center, located on County Road 210 next to Cimarrone. The Rippers from Sew Much Comfort will meet at 10:00 a.m. This months project will be Christmas trees for Community Peds Hospice. This is a yearly tradition and members decorate tabletop trees for families of hospice patients. Last year over 50 were donated. A representative from Community Peds will be at the meeting to accept the trees. If anyone would like to donate a two to three foot tree or decorations, please contact jacqphil@aol.com. Helping Hands relies solely on goods and services and nonmonetary donations from the community. On August 31 the group delivered a meal for the homeless in St. Augustine through Dining with Dignity. A delicious baked ham, oven roasted potatoes and green beans meal complete with dessert was prepared and served. Food was donated by Newcomers of St. Johns and Publix. At the regular meeting, the holiday project Helping Heroes Families was worked on. This years August 18, 2012 marked a milestone for Encore Dcor as we celebrated its fth year in business. It all started when we rolled the dice and bought our building in May 2007 with 90 days to get it ready. The layout was already perfect; the building just needed a bit of lipstick (or so we thought). Two weeks in to the remodel, we had barely made a dent in the prior 25 years of paint, wallpaper and six di erent types of ooring. It was time to call in reinforcements. We recruited family and friends to help us transform the old Marons Furniture building on San Jose Boulevard into Encore Dcor Upscale Consignment Store. It has been a grass roots e ort from the beginning. We spent nights working on the building and spent our days and weekends at auctions and estate sales buying up No dues, o cers or stressHelping Hands updateBy Contributing Writer Jackie Valyouproject will be a tribute to our local military families. These families sacri ce by serving our country and being supportive of their loved ones. Trees gaily decorated with red, white and blue bows with stars attached will be at First Florida Credit Union, Golf Club at South Hampton, St. Johns Golf and Country Club, Faith Community Church, the Cascades and several local neighborhoods on or before November 1. Each star will bear recipients Christmas/holiday sizes and interests. Anyone who wishes to take a star from the tree is asked to return it by December 1.Gifts are the donors choice. The chaplains at local bases will distribute gifts. All gifts must be new and unwrapped or placed in gift bag and returned to where the star was taken from.

Maybe we should have called it back-to-car instead. Backto-carpooling, back-to-driving to soccer practice and dance and the library. With all this car time, I thought Id remind myself and you of the nursery song, Be careful little ears, what you hear. Does your mind go straight to the radio? Mine does. Most days I play the positive music of 91.7 The Promise. Every song is safe for the whole family, the DJs dont cuss and its all-around edifying. But there are some days I want to drive fast with the windows down singing along to the s alternative of my high school days.

Remember to Reach up, Reach in and Reach out!Purposeful ParentingOh be careful little ears...By Allie Olsen, www.gracefullmom.comA wise, older friend gave me advice when Ben was little dont rush growing up. He reminded me that its important for kids to gain new privileges as they grow older. When choosing music and movies for our family, I try to keep this in mind. I save things for them to grow into. No PG-13 at six years old here and likewise I dont want them singing catchy lyrics they dont understand or that Id be ashamed if they did! Oh be careful little ears what you hear! More than focusing on what our children shouldnt listen to, though, lets make sure we ll our time with encouraging things: Talk with your kids in the car! Drill math facts, states and capitols, and Spanish wordsmake it a fun game and then you have less homework to do at home Check out stories on CD to listen to when youre in the car together Choose favorite songs and sing together, laugh together, enjoy one another! Listen, listen, listen! Speaking of listening... car time can be the perfect opportunity to catch up on phone calls. Lately I nd myself spending more time cultivating friendships with my girlfriends than with my children. Do you build relationship with your child with the goal of developing a friendship to last a lifetime? There is a lot I dont know, but one thing I do know for sure is that every child is unique and beautiful. I pray that as you spend time in the car itll be full of sweet memories and allow you a unique window into your childs heart.

Our therapists have the passion and skills to provide individualized care ensuring positive outcomes for patients. Physicians have trusted Atlas for 13 years and continually hear from the patients how professional the sta is and how pleased they were with the results. Community service has always been a special interest of Atlas.

Contact us and let us know how we can be a part of your event and the growth of the community. Atlas also recognizes that all athletes do not wear jerseys.

The marine environment exposes people to heat or cold, motion, wind, noise, This months movie review belongs to the lm Total Recall, an action lm with science ction and adventure for adults and teens. Looks like even in the future, people want a life different from the one they lead. So, factory worker Doug Quaid, portrayed by Colin Farrell, feeling stagnant and seeking a change even though he loves his life and his wife, visits Rekall for memories of a lifetime. His wife, Lori Quaid, played by Kate Beckinsale, is not a part of that lifetime, but other memories surface before Rekall can even initiate his di erent life. During his visit, he somehow discovers that he is a spy and before he knows it he is in a ght for his life. Not only at Rekall, but at home as well, life is not what he has always believed. His loving wife is now part of those he has to ght just to nd the truth of his own existence. Cohagen, performed by Bryan Cranston, is not just one of the countrys leaders, but seems to hold the key to Quaids, now otherwise known as Hausers past and the truths and ctions being uncovered. Underground forces led by Melina, portrayed by Jessica Biel, may also have answers for Hauser and a means of escape. Cohagen plans for domination of their planet and expects the return of Hauser to complete not only the mission but destroy the resistance. The early memory recovery at Rekall may have just monkey-wrenched or saved the future of the planet. The lm starts with fastpaced action and subtlety in leading Quaid to Rekall through the direction of Len Wiseman. United States Coast Guard Auxiliary updateBoaters must consider e ects of medication before leaving the dockBy Contributing Writer Robert A. Schultz, Public Affairs Of cer, United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 14-07and other factors that can cause fatigue in anyone, says Richard C. Lavy, M.D. The physical condition of everyone on board should be assessed before leaving the dock. Lack of shade and over exposure to Movie ReviewTotal RecallDirected by: Len Wiseman. Starring: Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, and Bryan Cranston. Review by T.G. StantonRating: Okay, But Could Have Waited for Cable(3 out of 5) There is much more in special e ects and shoot-outs than real story through the rest of the movie. Romance is limited to the very end for Hauser and Melina, thought it is hard to determine if there is just little chemistry between Biel and Farrell or if it is in the way it is written and directed. More sparks are observed between Biel and Beckinsale in the never-ending chick- ght that has to be included in movies of this nature than their relationships with Farrell. The original movie had frequent bits of comedy that have been completely left out of this version and are sorely missed. Action movies with little story need a dose of comedy. Again, the action and special e ects are well done and hold your attention, but little else in this movie does so. As a new version, it would probably have been better if I had not enjoyed the original.the sun and heat along with ever changing sea conditions can bring on dehydration, dizziness and heat exhaustion. Drowsiness or confusion will impair the ability to operate a boat safely much like too much alcohol. Recognize the signs of medical distress and know how to call for help. Depending on geographic area, use VHF marine channel 16 or call 911. Know before you go. Remember this acronym BOAT SAFE it stands for Bring plenty to eat and drink avoid dehydration Operate the boat in a safe and responsible manner Always wear a life jacket Take a boating safety course Sun, wind and temperatures can be more of a factor than boaters think Annual courtesy vessel safe check File a oat plan leave it with someone who will take action if you are overdue Evaluate the readiness of operating crew and passengers it is ok to not get underway when there is doubt For more information go to www.uscgboating.org or for a boating safety class contact the Coast Guard Auxiliary at www. cgaux.org.

Reintroduce Your Pet To Activity! Lace and leather! Thats leading the pack in the shopping meccas aisle for fall 2012! Lace for daytime is in. Its made of more coarse woven fabrics and in tones of rich colors like plum and bottle green or navy. Full length sheath dresses made in lacy fabrics hang on rounders ready for the early shoppers! This is a new wave of thinking for you edgy FFFs (Fashionable Florida Friends). Leather dresses and camisole tops in an array of colors are shown on the pages of the many thick periodicals piling up in my o ce mailbox. This takes the bar a lot higher than my black leather pants that I consider a fashion splurge! Layer a little leather jacket over your knee length sheath dresses for a great fall combo! Colors are rich and are the traditional fall hues that come to our minds like oranges, rust, gold and brown. Along with Fashion UpdateFall By Donna Keathley, dkeathley designsthat, plum, burgundy and navy are showing their stu too! So there is something for everyone out there no matter what your color palette might be. Legwear is big again this year and I love it! Patterned hosiery is still vogue alongside the opaque tights that we now consider a fashion staple. This legwear statement gives a nice nished look to any ensemble. Maybe we can thank Princess Kate for re-birthing the hosiery industry! Trench coats still rate high on the list and the little light weight parachute fabric ones rate high in my closet. I have several; after enjoying a little black one for several seasons I began picking up one here and there in fun colors and even one in a hounds-tooth print. When its a windy or overcast day I just throw one on over skinny black pants and walla! I am done! Pencil skirts are a biggy; everyone looks nice with this little number on and your hemline can be anywhere thats good for you. You can top this look with something oversized or a smart compact little sweater set. Again, hosiery nishes this look nicely too. Pants are all over the place with wide big legs, skinny legs or boot cut legs. Whatever works for you is in! I love the wide palazzo look for a dressy look as we look forward to going into the holiday season (did I really say that?) Hues of blue are out there to replace our standard little black numbers. So you gals that look good in navy, buy it up this year because seasons go by that you cant nd a thing on the shelves in blueespecially navy shoes! What to wear to work? Suits! We have seen a return to the most foolproof way of taking care of business. Suits with a pull-together portrait: the two pieces match. Wear your suit with either a skirt or pant, but both are ared at the bottom. The jacket is tailored with shoulders high and waist nipped in. The desired impression is that you are in command, so heels and good posture are essential and I think hose are too, my FFFs. The U11 boys Swamp Life 3v3 soccer team scored 20 goals in the nal three games to win the Challenge Sports 3v3 National Championship for their division at Walt Disney Worlds ESPN Sports Complex on August 5, 2012. The weekend tournament win was a perfect ending to a fun- lled season. The team entered the quarter nals with four close games Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, Coaches Jim Dwyer and Kyle Guthrie led the team as they battled the Volcanoes to a 6-4 win to advance to the semi-Swamp Life wins 3v3 national championship nals. Swamp Life then defeated Unreal Madrid in the semi- nals to advance to the championship game. After being tied at halftime in the championship game, Swamp Life took the lead in the second half and never looked back. They won with a score of 6-3 against a very tough Lake County Rush team. Congratulations to Coach Dwyer, Coach Guthrie, Jackson Brennan, Jimmy Dwyer, River Guthrie, Brandon Marchand, Joe Markey and Herbie Steigelman on their big win! Loggerhead swimmers are back to practice after a much deserved week long break for the team. During the months of July and August, JCLA swimmers swam in many championship meets. July was the Florida Age Group Championships held in Gainesville at the OConnell Center, in which 25 athletes quali ed for this meet and the Florida Swimming Senior Champs held in Sarasota. In August the team traveled to Tallahassee to swim in the Area 1 and 4 Champs. Head age group coach John Hulvey was selected to coach Loggerheads dive into another yearBy Contributing Writer Jacalyn Morton the 13-14 boys in the Southern Zone age group championships in Rockwell, Texas. Loggerhead swimmers Brittney Campbell and Evan Jacob were on the all-star team. Jacob placed rst in the 400 IM getting a Junior National cut 4:35.40. Campbell dropped 30 seconds o her 100 freestyle. At the Southern Zone Senior Champs in Plantation, Florida, JCLA swimmer Dani Gordon nished rst in the 200 breaststroke. Gordon was also mentioned in Swimming World Magazine for her third place nish in the breaststroke in the USA Swimming Sectionals in Ft. Lauderdale, getting national press coverage. In the past four years, Loggerhead Aquatics has grown tremendously. This team started in 2008 and is based out of Julington Creek, but with many swimmers coming from out of town and surrounding areas. JCLA has many sponsorship opportunities available for businesses to participate. Please contact Tina Tayag or Mary Ryan at tayagtina@yahoo.com or we4ryans@comcast.net for additional information.

The team was undefeated when play was suspended on the second day due to thunderstorms. They outscored the JYSC Fury White team 4-3 in an exciting game right to the end. They followed that with another win, this time 2-1 over WSC Fire in tough conditions on a wet eld. With storms canceling the rest of the tournament before the Clash could play their next game, the team nished undefeated and were declared co-champions of the U12 Silver Division with CCSC Red who were able to nish It all began 60 years ago in a backyard in Fair eld, Connecticut with a perforated plastic golf ball and a broomstick. An idea clicked with boys grandfather as he watched. He got some plastic balls from a nearby factory and after cutting various designs into the balls, discovered that eight oblong perforations worked best. A fun sport was born. Now some six decades later that plastic baseball has found a special spot in the summer activities of for our youth right here in St. Johns. Three years ago Brian Navin and Lou Fleming decide to share the fun their kids had with Wi e ball with the other kids from County Road 210 neighborhoods, so they started a Wi e Ball Camp. The rst year there were 30 kids joining in the Wi e ball fun. This year 84 kids joined in at the camp at St. Johns Forest Park. Coach Navin and Coach Fleming look upon this activity as a fun way to play sports. To just have fun the old-fashioned way. Just prior to camp, a weekend is spent building six elds named after professional ballparks. They even have their own replica of the Green Monster of Fenway Park and one of the Brick Wall at Wrigley Field. The kids are all placed on teams before the camp begins and taught the rules of Wi e ball. Yes, there are actually o cial rules for the game of Wi e ball, which date back to its beginning. Each camper receives a t-shirt which bears the logo of his or her team. Coach Fleming designed the logos with a little tongue-in-cheek fun. Each is based upon a MLB team with a bit of a twist. The Astros are now the Wi -stros, the Blue Jays the Wi -jays, the White Sox have become the Wi -sox Creeks Clash U12 White team wins!By Contributing Writer Julie MartinHaving fun the old-fashioned way with Wi e ballBy Karl Kennelland on they go. This year activities were added to the weeklong program including cheer and dance programs. Wi e ball camp gives kids seven to 13 years old a great way to play together without the pressures of other organized youth sports. Many of the kids already play Little League Baseball and Pop Warner Football. So smacking around a baseball size plastic one more game with a tie giving them a 2-0-1 record. Team members include Antonio Solis, Jack McNamee, John Vaughan, Hunter Crist, Jacob Van Petten, Chip Martin, Jackson Brennan, Chase Pucci, Caleb Conlan, Herbie Steigelman, Matt Morgan and Cameron Arreche. They are coached by Nizam Emamdie. Way to go, Clash!ball with holes in it de nitely is a fun way to blow o some steam and play just for fun!

This has caused an increase in the mosquito population in St. Johns County. St. Johns County has not had a human case of mosquito-borne illness since 2003, but Duval County has had 15 human cases of West Nile Virus this year alone. Last year Duval County had 21 cases and two deaths from West Nile Virus. Across the country there have been over 1100 cases of West Nile and over 40 deaths. The Anastasia Mosquito Control District has increased mosquito population surveillance and trap monitoring, mosquito borne illness testing, overnight ground spraying and thermal fogging and is utilizing all of our resources to control the situation. There are also steps that you can take to protect yourself from mosquitoes and mosquito borne illnesses. These include: Five Ds of Prevention: Dusk and Dawn (avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are seeking blood; for many species this is during the dusk and dawn hours) Dress (wear clothing that covers skin) DEET (use mosquito repellents including DEET on skin or pyrethrins on clothing when you are outside) Drainage (check your home to rid it of standing water in which mosquitoes can lay their eggs). Tips on eliminating mosquito breeding sites Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters. Remove old tires or drill holes in those used in playgrounds to drain. Turn over or remove empty plastic pots. Pick up all beverage containers and cups. Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. Pump out bilges on boats. Replace water in birdbaths and pet or other animal feeding dishes at least once a week. Change water in plant trays, including hanging plants, at least once a week. Remove vegetation or obstructions in drainage ditches that prevent the ow of water Encourage your neighbors to eliminate sources on their own property Together we can successfully have a community-wide mosquito control program. For more information about mosquito control, make a service request, see where we are spraying, get on the no spray list or other information, please visit www.amcdsjc.org or contact the Anastasia Mosquito Control District at 471-3107.

A lot of these bigger sh are the same sh youve been trying to catch all summer long but have managed to avoid your bait or got tossed back for another day. After spending the last ve or six months gorging themselves on crabs, clams, bait sh and shrimp, many of these sh have managed to add to their length and girth. The size and quality of sh we experience in the fall is usually directly related to how well the shrimp are running for that year. Our annual shrimp run peaks in the early weeks of fall which often leads to superb St. Johns River shing for a variety of fresh and saltwater species. Red sh, sea trout, weak sh, ounder, croaker, sheepshead, drum and more can be expected to make a showing at some point this fall to take advantage of the shrimp dinners the river will be o ering. Docks, bridges, holes, channels and sandbars will all be locations youll want to give a try. This years shrimp run has been slower than an average year, but great considering how much rain we have received. Despite the rain, we have shrimp in the river as far south as Green Cove with heavier Summer brought a relief to many students: a time to relax, make plans with their friends and family and forget about school for a couple months. Thats not to say that the Panthers laid o on their summer work or summer training, however. But now, the rst few days of school means its back to business for Nease; the work begins anew in the classroom and on the eld. For teachers who double as coaches, this year brings yet another demanding yet rewarding challenge of grades, teamwork and victories. For the fall season, the football players will be hard at work with new coach Shane Nease Sports RoundupBy Elena Castello, Nease StudentMatthews. The football team has been training very hard and all the players are ready to take on other schools with new strategies, new players and a new attitude. This year will surely be a success and the team will turn over a new leaf this year. Cross country, golf and swimming are also a big part of Neases fall athletics. Rain or shine (literally, because they ran the rst day of school in pouring rain), the cross country team will strive to be even better this year. And with senior Mac Reynolds no longer at Nease, there are some big shoes to ll. The team practices every afternoon with head coach Michael Rivera. A new crew team at Nease is sure to bring victories and trophies to those who pursue this great water sport. With training a few days during the week and Saturday mornings, the team is ready to train and win this school year. Basketball starts conditioning in a week and although many seniors graduated, this rebuilding year for the team will be a fun challenge for the Nease Panthers. With all the sports starting with a fresh new season, its time to get back in the stadium, bleachers or sidelines and cheer on the best of the best!Captain Davids Fishing ReportBy Captain David Lifkaconcentrations closer to town and beyond. Doctors Lake, Shands Bridge, Ortega River railroad bridge and the mouth of Julington Creek are all spots to try the next time you go shrimping. With the arrival of fall we have still have a lot of shing and shrimping to look forward to on the St. Johns River. Fatter sh, more species and shrimp make fall one of the best times of year to sh. Fishing Report: Bass shing has been good up in the creeks. A strong croaker and yellowmouth bite almost anywhere in the river. Docks are holding red sh. Whether you catch one, some or none, the family time spent shing will last a lifetime.District IV of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and the Duval County Extension Service will sponsor this exciting 10th annual horticultural event on Saturday, September 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It will be held at the Duval County Extension O ce at 1010 North McDu Avenue.

These sports include cross-country, golf, swimming, diving, cheerleading, volleyball and football. Each of these teams have been preparing for their season of meets and games with camps and conditioning all summer long. But lets focus on football, where the time is here yet again for everyone to get together on those exciting Friday nights, cheering on their black and blue team with Bear Pride. As well known, last year held for a winning season with the Bartram Trail Bears football team. Making it all the way to the state semi- nals, with a record of 12-2, they have much to live up to this year. A signi cant number of seniors graduate every year, many of whom played on the football team. With 29 players gone from last year, including Nate Peterman, the star quarterback, many people are looking down upon the new team of Bears. However, after talking with head Coach Sutherland and a few of the players, they dont seem too worried. When asked how he thought the upcoming season would play out, Coach Sutherland has only one word to describe it, Awesome! He further emphasizes that his team was built on hardworking ethics and dedication. Its a team e ort where everyone believes in each other, that they can get the job done, says Thomas Gallitz, a senior and starting varsity kicker for the Bears. P.J. Blazejowski, now a junior at Bartram Trail and the new starting quarterback to replace Peterman, talks about the big shoes he has to ll. I know for me, playing last year under Nate was really a blessing. He taught me most of what I know and its great to be able to play under those lights knowing Im a better player because of him. Blazejowski further explains, Now that all of the old seniors are gone, its time for us to continue what they started for this program. We have the same expectations, which is the state championship. So, even though we are missing all of the The Dragons soccer team won the national championship title for U9 3v3 soccer at the national playoffs held August 2 through 5 at Disneys Wide World of Sports. In the nal playoff game, the Dragons won 3-2 over the undefeated USBG team of Lakeland. There were 14 U9 teams in all competing for the championship title. Congratulations to Lauren Black, Victoria Stachowiak, Miriam Abikhaled, Olivia Glass, Claire King and Coach Mike Glass!Dragons 3v3 soccer team wins national championship BTHS Sports RoundupA new year, a new teamBy Megan Grant, BTHS Studentbig players from last year, we can use our own identity and talent as a team to continue to pursue excellence this year! Throughout the summer, the team has been pre-season conditioning with weightlifting and agility camps. They prepare physically and mentally as they are already watching lm and improving their plays to beat the opposing teams to come. Everyone shows con dence and readiness to face whatever challenges are thrown at them this season. As the saying goes, Hard work beats talent, when talent doesnt work hard and it appears that this team has both. They may have lost some key players, but that doesnt stop the goals that the Bartram Trail Bears have set for themselves this year. Go Bears!

My husband (former Jaguars coach Paul McCord) and I decided to create some more options for girls in our area and with the vision of Rob Jennis, we started Creeks Girls Lacrosse and a number of high school programs. Its been amazing to see what has happened since, she shared. From next to no one playing to more than 2,500 girls in north Florida in just over seven years is what happened! Many have moved on from Girls lacrosse explodes in North Floridahigh school to college programs nationwide. Mel Hicks (Bartram Trail), the areas rst all-American high school player, went on to shine on the Division I level at Detroit and Jacksonville. Many others, including Taylor McCord (Bartram Trail), Mindy McCord s daughter and Florida Gator standout, have since followed. It all starts with RE-LAX; our Role Models plus Positive Experience lacrosse program that ts local girls with college players and coaches to learn advanced skills at ages as young as kindergarten. We want to get kids started right and utilize the outstanding players at JU as role models for our kids. This is all done at a very reasonable price. The game grows when people on top of the sport give back to the youth in our community, McCord continued. RE-LAX is a middle school and elementary program that runs Sundays in the fall (October 7 through November 4 from 12:00 noon until 2:00 p.m.) at Plantation Park o of Race Track Road next to Fruit Cove Middle School.

The Power has a week-long band camp right before school starts. At this camp we work on the new half time show with the help of our amazing drum majors Mary Polidan, Drew Booher and Paige Zyserman. We also couldnt do it without Mr. Rick Fowler, the director; Mr. Keith Hall, our assistant director; A behind the scenes look at The Power of CreeksideBy Contributing Writers Emily Long and Amanda Williams, CHS Students Mr. David Renn, our assistant instructor; Mr. Drew Chiodo, our marching tech; and of course Ms. Jess Frantz, our guard coach. This band camp is four days from 8:00 in the morning to 4:00 in the afternoon. Yes, its in the middle of August, and yes, its really hot. Despite this fact, we work tirelessly to perfect marching the rst one or two songs of the showwe may even start to play the music while marching to the rst two songs. This year, The Power of Creekside is proud to present the show I Want My MTV including I Want My MTV for our opening song. If you want to know our other songs you can come and see our halftime show at any Friday night home football game at Creekside or you can see us at the competitions that The Power attends. On November 3 we will present our show at Fleming Island for the Florida Bandmasters Association (FBA) marching assessment. This is one thing we constantly work toward. From 3:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., several high schools will present their shows and The Power of Creekside is proud to be one of them. Its true that band is a lot of commitment. We have practice every Tuesday and Thursday and games on Fridays. But with this commitment comes a bond. The Power of Creekside is really one huge family of 194 members. We all have something in common and were all working toward the same goal. Suddenly its not just about one person, its about the whole band and if one person makes a mistake, we all make a mistake. But were all watching out for each other, too; its an experience unlike any other and being a part of it is de nitely rewarding. Last year, the Power of Creekside received a Superior at the FBA marching assessment for the fourth year in a row. The Power is looking forward to another great season and hopefully another Superior. While band is a lot of hard work, its worth it. Remember to come and see The Power of Creekside at any Friday night home football game!

An example of involvement is Cross Creek Presbyterian Church, which has been involved for the past “ ve years serving Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner to the homeless as part of Dining with Dignity.

So let us tell you about our local farmers markets that are worth a visit. New on the scene as of August 25 is the St. Johns River Farmers Market at Alpine Groves Park, locate at 2060 State Road 13 in Switzerland. On August 25 the market kicked o with its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony. On hand for the ceremony were local dignitaries County Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson, County Commission Chairman Ken Bryan and St. Johns County Director of Recreation and Parks Wil Smith. There was a free drawing for gift baskets of goods and certi“ cates donated by the vendors. The market will be open each Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. You will “ nd vendors such as KYV Farm, Fresh Start Hydroponics Farm, Natural Springs Dairy Products, Cartwheel Ranch Meats, Sallas Specialty Casseroles, Hives and More, Marias Bakery and Susan Dykstra Nursery, along with many crafters, artists and ready-to-eat food vendors. Also participating in the market are the William Bartram Scenic and Historic Highway Management Council, local Girl Scouts, the Friends of Alpine Groves Park and the Garden Club of Switzerland. The vision for the market is to provide a traditional oldtime market day for the community. It is to be a fun commercial center and gathering place for entertainment, socializing and education.

The administrator is appointed by a majority of the membership of the Board of County Commissioners and is subject to Section 125.73, Florida Statutes, County Ordinance and County Administrator contract provisions (Board Rules and Policies, Page 7). The County Administrator is the administrative head of the Board of County Commissioners and is responsible for the administration of all departments of county government (with exception of the O ce of the County Attorney) which the board has authority to control pursuant to county ordinance, the general laws of Florida and other applicable legislation (Board Rules and Policies, Page 7). Along with being responsible for administration of all departments, the County Administrator is to administer and carry out the directives and policies of the Board of County Commissioners and enforce all orders, resolutions, ordinances and regulations of the board to assure that they are faithfully executed. The County Administrator is required to prepare an agenda for all board meetings and workshops in accordance with board instructions. The administrator must also attend these meetings of the board with authority to participate in the discussion of any matter and make recommendations to the board (Board Rules and Policies, Page 8). The County Administrator has the following budgetary responsibilities: Prepare and submit to the board for its consideration and adoption an annual operating budget, a capital budget and a capital program. Establish the schedules and procedures to be followed by all county departments, o ces and agencies in connection with the board budget and supervise and administer all phases of the board budgetary process. Prepare and submit to the board after the end of each “ scal year a complete report on the “ nances and administrative activities of the county for the preceding year and submit recommendations (Board Rules and Policies, Page 9). The County Administrator is to negotiate leases, contracts and other agreements, including consultant services, for the board, subject to approval of the board and make recommendations concerning the nature and location of the board funded improvements. The administrator is to see that all terms and conditions in all board leases, contracts and agreements are performed and notify the board of any noted violation thereof (Board Rules and Policies, Pg. 9). The County Administrator has the following responsibilities regarding board personnel: Recommend to the board a current position classi“ cation and pay plan for all positions under the board. Select, employ, supervise and “ ll all personnel positions of employment under the jurisdiction of the board, except those under the O ce of the County Attorney (Note: Employment of all department directors shall require con“ rmation by the board). Suspend, discharge or remove any non-legal employee under the jurisdiction of the board pursuant to procedures adopted by the board. Order and promptly advise the board thereof, any department or agency under the County Administrators jurisdiction to undertake any task for any other department or agency on a temporary basis when the County Administrator deems it necessary for the proper and e cient administration of the county government to do so (Board Rules and Policies, Page 10). Board instruction or directives to non-legal employees of county government under the jurisdiction and control of the Board of County Commissioners shall be issued only through the County Administrator. A County Commissioner shall not give orders or instructions, publicly or privately, to any county of“ cial or employee who is subject to the direction and supervision of the County Administrator. However, interaction, communication and observance will be permitted so long as no direction is given (Board Rules and Policies, Page 10). In general, the administrator receives direction from the board and brings recommendation back to be considered by the board.County Administrators relationship with Board of County CommissionersElementary is an all-digital-learning school. Class rooms will have iPads and computers instead of text books. This will enable the students to have greater access to the wealth of learning experiences available through the World Wide Web. First grade teacher Heather Isbell displayed her enthusiasm for the program by saying, I cant explain just how excited I am to be part of this innovative school!Ž The core curriculum is called STEMŽ for Science, Technology, Engineering/Environment and Math. Not to be forgotten though is a real library. Principal Campbell believes in a strong reading program and recognizes the need to blend digital with the feelings of reading an actual book. He believes it is important to experience the curiosity a student has when they can browse the shelves of a library and choose a book, physically putting it in the hands of a student to experience ” ipping real pages. Currently physical education activities and music are included in the curriculum with foreign languages to be added in the near future. One special activity surely will be a highlight in the students day„the Lego Lab. The Lego Education Program is a special program speci“ cally designed to use the world recognized toys to enhance the learning experience and curiosity of students. The school, located at 355 Palencia Village Drive, just east of U.S. Highway 1 in the Palencia community, contains approximately 100,000 square Principal Don Campbell and rst grade teacher Heather Isbell.Palencia Elementary cont. on pg. 5 Palencia Elementary cont. from pg. 1to serve dinner to the homeless on the fourth Saturday of each month. They are a small group of volunteers who take turns with the church youth going down to St. Augustine to serve. Several area eateries and grocery stores help out with donations of food. An evening involves the guests being served helping to set up tables, unloading the food from the cars and cleaning up after dinner. The whole event takes just a little over an hour. Also involved in the Dining with Dignity mission are volunteers and groups from Swiss Cove Christian Church, San Juan Del Rio Catholic Church, Celebration Lutheran Church and Helping Hands. More groups and volunteers are joining in the mission each month. The e orts of Dining with Dignity have helped achieve the new one-stop center for the homeless on County Road 207, for which ground breaking recently took place. The facility will have a full kitchen, social services and help for those trying to get back on their feet. More groups are always welcome to join in. Its very rewarding and a very easy way to help our community. If you have a restaurant and would like to donate food that would also be extremely helpful.

As I visited schools the “ rst week, including 14 on the “ rst day, I found students already engaged in learning and many parents present in our schools, volunteering to “ ll in the gaps for our teachers. I am so appreciative of the can doŽ attitude of our parents and community members who step up to make sure our schools have everything they need to enhance our students learning and to provide the extra hands that free up our teachers to focus on each of the children in their classes. Our number one ranking year after year is a direct result of the great generosity of these “ ne people who give so freely of their time and resources. For the “ rst time, our district has received applications for charter schools that are run by for-pro“ t companies. These schools, unlike our current charter schools, are run by large companies that bene“ t “ nancially from the schools. On August 28, our School Board heard presentations from three new applicants seeking to bring charters to our county. Both Somerset Academy K-8 and Somerset Academy 9-12 are run by Academica. Kids Community College Elementary Charter School at St. Johns County, Inc. is run by Kids Community College. The board and the district sta had several concerns that were presented to the companies. Meetings will be held with both groups to address the questions raised. On September 25, a special School Board meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. to either approve or deny each of the new charters. As always, the public is welcome to attend the meeting and address the board. There are a few changes to schedules that need to be highlighted. A small change to this years school calendar has been employed in order to allow upper level students to complete their “ nal exams before Winter Break. The “ rst day of the break will now be December 24, and students will return to class on January 7, 2013. Because of the high stakes of end of course exams, our high schools requested that we make the change so that students could take the exams when the information was fresh, giving our students their best chance for success. Another schedule change is the time of the September and October School Board meetings. Because of numerous awards and recognitions involving both students and faculty, we will hold both those meetings in the evening, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The September meeting is on 11th, and Octobers meeting will be on the 9th, both at the evening hour. I want to take the personal Dear Editor, I care about underage drinking prevention because quite frankly I am tired of attending funerals. Im writing to express my concern about the availability of alcohol to youth in our community. This is not a coming-of-age issue; rather, this is a health issue that can have a devastating impact on our youth and their loved ones. Research has shown that those who begin drinking alcohol before the age of 15 are 6.6 times more likely than those who start at age 21 and older to develop alcohol problems.[SAMSHA. (2011). Results from the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Summary of national “ ndings.] This consequence is understandable, as brain development continues until age 25. Underage alcohol use most often occurs at home or the home of your childs friend. [SAMSHA. (August 28, 2008). Underage alcohol use: Where do young people drink? The NSDUH report.] Underage drinkers are able to purchase or obtain alcohol from relatives and friends at a high rate. In 2010, among 12to 20-year-olds who drank: € More than one in four, got it for free from a nonrelative age 21 or older; € 14.6 percent got it for free from another underage person; € 5.9 percent got it from a parent or guardian; and € 8.5 percent got it from another relative age 21 or older. [SAMSHA. (November 20, 2008). Underage alcohol use: Where do young people get alcohol? The NSDUH report.] Parents, family and community members can help limit access to alcohol by not providing alcohol to youth. Retail establishments can conduct beverage server training, not sell to underage youth and reduce the appeal of overconsumption with happy hour restrictions. Reducing the density of alcohol outlets can result in fewer drinking-related problems. Underage drinking contributes to costly health and social problems, including tra c fatalities, suicide, physical and sexual assaults, brain impairment, alcohol dependence, academic problems, and alcohol and drug poisoning Be part of the solution. PACT will present Be a Parent, Not a FriendŽ Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, September 20 from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Bartram Trail High School.

I would ask all of you to take extra time and be extremely careful in school zones as well as at bus stops. Motorists should plan on longer commutes and follow the speed limit in school zones. Deputies will be at school zones throughout the county to monitor those zones and to address any violations accordingly. Drivers need to be advised that speeding “ nes are doubled if they occur in a school zone. Deputies will also be in unmarked vehicles seeking any motorists who pass stopped school buses while loading or unloading students. Remember all tra c in both directions must come to a complete stop for school buses that are stopped, displaying the stopŽ signal. Motorists Back to school safetytraveling in the opposite direction are exempt from stopping if the roadway is separated by a median of at least “ ve feet wide. These infractions will be strictly enforced. Motorists are also reminded to take extra precaution at school bus stops where eager youngsters, many riding the bus for the “ rst time, may dart into the street as the bus arrives. Here are some safety rules to pass along to children that ride a school bus: Arrive at your bus stop at least “ ve minuets early and stand at least 10 feet away from the roadway. Be sure to wait until the bus stops, the door opens and the bus driver says its all right to enter before stepping onto the bus. Be careful that the clothing with drawstrings and book bags with straps or dangling objects do not get caught in the handrail or door when exiting the bus. Walk in front of the bus, never behind the bus. Remember if you cant see the bus driver, he or she cannot see you. After getting o the school bus, stop at the edge of the bus and look both ways before crossing. If you were to drop something beside the bus, make sure to you tell the driver before attempting to pick it up. Students who walk to school should do so on a sidewalk if it is available. If there is no sidewalk, students should walk against the ” ow of tra c and be sure to cross at marked crosswalks. Those who ride a bicycle should remember to ride with the ” ow of tra c and follow all tra c signs and signals. Remember students are required to wear a bicycle helmet. Now that schools are open for another year, please take the extra time needed and watch out for our most precious resource, our children. As I close this month, I would like to remind you that there is a wealth of information that you can obtain by visiting our website at www. sjso.org. Also, feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or questions about your Sheri s O ce or if you have any topics for my monthly column. My email address is dshoar@sjso.org.

The subject at hand is the incessant telephone calls from political candidates begging and exhorting likely voters to vote for them because their opponent is not only a bad person, but probably beats their dog, too. Mandarin has witnessed one of the nastiest, loudest, most disgusting Republican primaries for the Florida Senate in decades. The real reason for the nastiness is the candidates each supported a di erent candidate for the future presidency of the Florida Senate, bringing out a lot of big guns far beyond local issues. The winner most likely will cast a deciding vote over who will be the Senate President in the future. Civility was never part of this process and it enforced many voters stereotypes about politicians. But, peace has reigned over the land … for now. Things are already becoming overheated for the presidential election in November. Now that there is an o cialŽ nominee from each major party, some serious campaigning will envelope the land. You thought things have been intense up to this point? Childs play, compared to what will come in October and early November. Keep in mind a couple of things: First, the only polls which count are those polls which talk to likely voters. Many polls use registered voters, but, since we know seldom do many registered voters actually vote, its likely voters who almost always vote. They are the bellwether, not registered voters. Second, dig down into poll numbers you read and “ nd out how the poll is weighted between registered Republicans, registered Democrats and Independents or voters of other minority parties. If a pollster asks questions of too many Republicans versus what the actual population mix is, then the poll will be falsely skewed towards a Republican outcome. The same is true for Democrats. Polling is a science and it takes trained professional pollsters to understand how to construct a survey instrument (the poll), how to get honest answers from those polled and then, how to interpret those answers. As an example, with an incumbent, you can look at their poll numbers and, even if they are leading, it is important to look at how much is stacked against them. Even if they are leading, if more is stacked against them than for them, they are likely to ultimately lose. Its also important to know about undecideds. Every honest pollster will tell you when it gets down to time in the voting booth, undecideds will ultimately vote for the challenger, not the incumbent. If they were for the incumbent, they probably wouldnt be undecided in the “ rst place. And, one “ nal word.

Regarding child-watch fees, Mr. Lansdale incorrectly stated a majority of the supervisors resisted an increase because it was unreasonable. A potential rate increase was discussed, but no vote was taken as any increase in fees requires a properlynoticed rate hearing. During an upcoming rate hearing, the board will determine with public input if a fee increase is warranted. Understanding this, the FY 2013 budget does not re” ect a hypothetical increase. Repeatedly, Mr. Lansdales comments regarding budget increases fail to recognize the addition of new recreational facilities. Not only is the comparison of the preand post-expansion budgets illogical, it is misleading. Expansion of amenities was done with public input and an understanding that a much larger sta would be required for proper operation, which necessitated a signi“ cantly larger payroll. No CDD employee has Letter to the Editorreceived an increase in base pay over the past three years, unless their duties changed substantially. And, contrary to Lansdales comments, a salary study was conducted to the satisfaction of a majority of the board. Mr. Lansdale continually suggests he is the only “ scallyminded Supervisor. In fact, all of the Supervisors have worked diligently to keep assessments low, while maintaining the high quality of our amenities. I believe Mr. Lansdales e ectiveness as a Supervisor could be enhanced by spending more time working towards solutions with the rest of the board and less time publishing in” ammatory columns, which are divisive in our community. Brad Nelson, Supervisor JCP CDD Board of Supervisors Dear Editor, I am a former Supervisor of the JCP CDD concerned that the current board is out of touch with whats going on around them. Many JCP residents are coping with low property values, underwater mortgages, high foreclosure rates, unemployment, higher living expenses and no raises or bonuses. Yet, the CDD board wont implement a plan for better operating ef“ ciency to reduce CDD assessments. The board also refuses to investigate whats fair compensation or reasonable employee sta ng levels. Were even subsidizing some operating costs (like babysitting) while parents enjoy themselves taking lessons, working out, eating or drinking soft or hard beverages. A candidate for the November election is so out of touch saying (in a 2011 email to the board) Im hoping that JCP continues to be a Families Come FirstŽ community and if complainers wish to not be bothered by programs that support family friendly activities, perhaps they should live in retirement communities instead.Ž How charming! If you disagree with the present board/special interests and cant cough up more O&M assessment money, you can move … to a retirement Letter to the Editorhome. This same candidate also said, to contemplate reducing their [Loggerhead Aquatics] access to training facilities is completely unreasonable and short-sighted.Ž The obvious sentiment being … the recreation center is for the primary bene“ t of swim teams rather than everyones enjoyment. Whos short sighted? On November 6, lets elect two new supervisors who are more interested in keeping costs as low as possible„otherwise well have two new supervisors more interested in protecting bene“ ts for special interests.

Have you met the new general manager? His name is Edd Mooney (yes, he spells it with a double dŽ). Mooney has many years of experience owning and operating resorts as well as retail operations in Texas, Georgia and abroad in Great Britain. His management background is broad in scope and he was a semi-professional soccer player in South Africa in the early 1980s. He has been a franchisee directing the day-to-day operation of Baskin Robbins UK as well as general manager of a Texas resort with golf, “ tness, aquatics, spa, restaurant and marina. In short, Mooney brings a wealth of experience to our general manager position. Your CDD Board of Supervisors is keeping your assessments at levels lower than any amenitizedŽ CDD in northeast Florida. At the public hearing in August, the board adopted the Fiscal Year 2013 budget. After keeping annual assessments constant at $830 in 2011 and 2012, the board reduced the single family home assessment by approximately $70 e ective October 1, 2012. The new annual assessment will be $760 for single family households. Commercial land assessments will be reduced by a comparable rate. No programs have been eliminated; management has worked diligently to “ nd cost savings. Capital reserve funding levels have been met in accordance with an independent report prepared by Dreux Isaac and Associates. We will continue to improve our operations and budgeting process, while maintaining excellent customer service. The board authorized underwriters to begin the process to re“ nance the Series 2002 bonds. MBS Capital Markets LLC is in negotiations with lenders to re“ nance the bonds at a lower rate. This will reduce debt service assessments for single family households by $20 to $35, dependent on the agreed upon terms and rates. Although the term of the bonds may be shortened, there will not be an extension of the expiration date. We are focused on paying o CDD long-term debt. Closing on the re“ nancing will likely occur in November 2012. There are two Board of Supervisor positions on the November 2012 ballot. Please learn the opinions of the residents who are running for election to these seats. The CDD will provide a chance for you to meet them and hear their views. We will host a Meet The Candidate NightŽ on October 9, 2012 at 7:30 p.m., immediately following the monthly public meeting.

The community volunteer helps the public to gain insight into how poison centers save lives and hundreds Lately in our weekly sales meetings our Realtors have been sharing the kinds of stories weve havent heard in quite awhile. That is the Tale of the Home that Got Away.Ž The market is heating up and buyers are actually missing out on the homes they want because they are not moving quickly enough or underbidding. It seems that the tide is shifting away from the buyers market. The primary reasons for that are reduced inventory and pent up demand. People are “ nally buying homes again and there are fewer to choose from. Recent statistics from the Northeast Florida Association of Is it the end of the buyers market?By Contributing Writer Sherry Davidson, President, Davidson Realty, Inc.Realtors (NEFAR) shows: € Pending sales are up more than 17 percent from the same time last year. The price range with the largest increase in pending sales is the $1 Million Plus category with a 39 percent increase. € Inventory continues to decline and is down about 30 percent from the same period last year. In June there was six months supply of inventory … a “ ve to six month inventory represents a balanced market. Although closings have still not caught up with the surge in pending sales that has occurred over the last three months, transactions are simply taking longer to close. The takeaway for homebuyers is to be prepared to act quickly when they “ nd the right home. Were recommending buyers get preapproved, not just pre-quali“ ed, before starting their home search. Also, if its truly your dream home, make a strong opening o er. The biggest mistake is that buyers are still in the mindset that its a distressed housing market and they are in the drivers seat. The truth is, great homes at fair prices are being snapped up quickly. The market is more balanced and home buyers need to come prepared. Poison Center seeks community volunteersof dollars on unnecessary doctor and emergency room visits related to accidental poisonings. The community volunteer plays an invaluable role in providing our community with needed education highlighting the free, professional services of the Poison Center,Ž states Vicki Coppen, RN, education coordinator. The community volunteer is an integral part of achieving our goal of educating and protecting the residents in our service area of 42 counties and the United States Virgin Islands from accidental poisoning exposures. The only cost to the volunteer is their time.Ž Community volunteer positions are available by calling the Education O ce with the Florida/USVI Poison Information Center Jacksonville at 244-4465.

Business executives have used coaching for decades to increase productivity, strengthen management skills and address managerial issues. Today, coaching is o ered in a variety of areas. Coaching can be used to improve organizational and conversational skills, relationships and careers. But what is coaching exactly? How does it di er from counseling and how does one choose a coach? Coaching helps clients identify, set and reach speci“ c goals that make life or work better. Coaches use strategies and action plans, along with accountability and reinforcement to identify the obstacles to reaching their goals and together they create a plan for overcoming them. Who uses coaching? Job seekers use coaching for career decision-making and to increase hiring potential. Couples use coaching to build stronger relationships. Managers use coaching to strengthen interpersonal and supervisory skills to improve departmental functioning within the workplace. Individuals use coaching to improve organizational skills Women want answers and dialogue about breast cancer from area physicians and experts. In order to expand to accommodate more women, the “ fth annual Pink Ribbon Symposium will be held at the Hyatt-Jacksonville (formerly held in Orange Park) on Saturday, October 6 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Founded by Drs. Cynthia Anderson and Linda Sylvester, it is proudly presented by Cancer Specialists of North Florida and F.R.O.G. (Florida Radiation Oncology Group). The event will present important up-to-date information about breast cancer prevention, early detection and treatment options, the side e ects of treatment, survivorship, plus good health and wellness topics. This years special guest is former Olympic gold medal winner Peggy Fleming, also a breast cancer survivor. She will share her triumph on the ice, as well as “ ghting the disease in an up-close and very personal way. The symposium is free and guests will enjoy the Event Expo and be treated to a delicious, healthy continental breakfast. You will learn how to care for your body, how sleep can a ect your treatment and how best to deal with relationships including family and friends. This year the symposium will o er one session in Spanish. The schedule is as follows: 8:00 a.m. … 9:00 a.m.: Meet and Greet (Doors Open, Registration, Exhibits, TaTa Cha Cha) 9:00 a.m. … 9:30 a.m.: Opening remarks from Founders Drs. Cynthia Anderson and Linda Sylvester 9:40 a.m. … 10:20 a.m.: Breakout Session I: Plastic Surgery: Exploring Reconstruction Options; Breast Cancer: How Pathology Makes A Di erence; Survivors Panel: Meeting And Talking To Other Survivors; or Caring For Our Bodies: Nutrition And You 10:30 a.m. … 11:10 a.m.: Breakout Session II: Hereditary Breast Cancer for Men And Women; Being a Caregiver: How to Find Support; Exercise: How Do I Get Started?; Coaching vs. counselingBy Contributing Writer Dr. Jenny Preffer, PhD, LMHC, ACS, RN, North Florida Counseling and Mediation Services, LLCso they can spend more time with family or in leisure activities or to achieve personal goals like running a marathon, losing weight or writing a book. High school students use coaching to make college decisions while college students focus coaching on de“ ning and reaching occupational or career goals. Coaching is not counseling or therapy, however. Counseling is personal and focuses on individual and family problems of the past that continue to a ect the di erent areas of daily life. It focuses on addressing and working through the emotional pains that in” uences personal and professional relationships. In contrast, coaching does not deal with emotional issues and instead concentrates on identifying and meeting goals. Coaching services are usually o ered in packages that extend over several months because research shows change occurs over time. Coaching is an investment of time and money so choosing the right coach is critical. Ask prospective coaches about their credentials and education. Coaching is a non-regulated profession … anyone can call themselves a coach. Some organizations o er training programs and credentials, but states do not license coaches. Ask about the coachs background and what experience they have that quali“ es them to coach in a particular area. Licensed counseling professionals are often well equipped to o er life or relationship coaching, while professionals who have been involved in upper level business management, human resources and career counseling generally are wise choices for career coaching services. Dont forget to ask business or career coaches how they stay up-todate on whats happening in the career and business world.

When the new school year began on August 20, wonderful LPA teachers, sta and parent volunteers welcomed 1326 students and even more were coming in to register for the 2012-2013 school year.

Thanks to the help of all LPA teachers, sta and volunteers, new students were able to get their schedules, “ nd their classrooms, obtain lockers and planners and simply “ nd their way around.

There are 44,000 children receiving treatments for cancer each year in the United States and many more that are in remission … with the hopes they have “ nally beaten this nasty disease. Here in the Jacksonville area, kids with cancer are receiving treatments at Wolfson Childrens Hospi-Bring a smile to a child who needs one!By Contributing Writer Leslie Warner, Jacksonville Coordinator, ConKerr Cancer Members of Girl Scout Troop 1146 and Cadette Troop 108 display some of the pillowcases they made for local kids being treated for cancer.tal, Nemours Childrens Clinic and UF/Shands Proton Therapy Center. And over 100 children are in the wonderful care of Peds Care, a pediatric palliative care division of Northeast Florida Hospice. All of these kids are courageously facing the treatments, doctor visits, surgeries and side e ects and trying to live their lives as normally as possible. It is amazing how the little things can bring a smile to their faces, like receiving a custom made pillowcase that re” ects the things they love. ConKerr Cancer is a nationwide charitable organization that focuses solely on bringing smiles to kids facing cancer or other life-changing illnesses through the gift of a bright, cheerful, fun pillowcase, made by someone in their community. It is a simple thing when you consider the enormous challenge of beating cancer, but it has an immediate positive impact. It is amazing to see the smiles on the faces of the kids who receive these pillowcases, as well as the joy it brings to their parents when seeing that smile. Some of the children will refuse to sleep on any other pillowcase because it is so special to them. The Jacksonville chapter of ConKerr Cancer delivers about 150 pillowcases each month to all four of the centers/organizations listed above. They rely on the generosity of community members to make this happen. Volunteers who love to sew can design and sew the cases. Volunteers who dont know how to sew can learn quickly, since a pillowcase is the “ rst project in most sewing classes and is very simple to do! We have Girl Scout troops and church youth groups learn this skill while completing a community service project. Volunteers who have no inclination to sew can purchase the bright fun fabric that is needed to keep this supply of pillowcases going. And of course, money is always welcome to fund the purchase of additional fabric. We often dont have enough fabric to supply all those who are willing to sew. Each September, ConKerr Cancer sponsors their Miles of Pillowcase SmilesŽ event with a nationwide goal of collecting 44,000 pillowcases … one for each child receiving treatment. Our goal in Jacksonville is to collect 600 in September. The Jacksonville Quilt Fest in late September provides an opportunity for festival visitors to sew pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer and we need lots of fabric to support this e ort! If you are interested in volunteering in some way, or want to “ nd out more about how you might use this as a community service opportunity for your church, youth group or womens group, please contact Jacksonville Coordinator Leslie Warner at case4smilesjax@comcast.net or 230-9485.

The student count for the St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) on opening day, August 20, 2012, was 29,273, an increase of 787 students or 2.8 percent over last years “ rst day number of 28,486. During the past “ ve years when many districts have seen sustained or declining enrollment, St. Johns County has continued to be one of the fastest growing counties in the state. The high school student count was 9,257, with 1,608 students at Bartram Trail High School, 1,731 at Creekside High School, 1,289 at Pedro Menendez High School, 1,602 at Nease High School, 1,450 at Ponte Vedra High School and 1,577 at St. Augustine High School. There were also 142 students in attendance at St. Johns Technical High School (SJTHS). SJTHS is located on the campus of First Coast Technical College and offers academic studies combined with career and vocational training. Middle school attendance totaled 6,865, with student headcounts ranging from 620 at Sebastian Middle School First day student count increases in St. Johns Countyto 1365 at Fruit Cove Middle School. The other “ rst day “ gures were Landrum Middle School with 1,235, Murray Middle School with 709, Pacetti Bay Middle School with 986, Gamble Rogers Middle School with 813 and Switzerland Point Middle School with 1,137. Liberty Pines Academy, the districts only permanent K-8 school, had a “ rst day headcount of 1,191. The elementary school population totaled 11,559; however, this count includes less than 25 percent of the kindergarten population since schools stagger the kindergarten start date over a “ ve-day period.

Homework requirements, packed schedules, extracurricular activities and even shorter hours of daylight are only a few things that make this time of year a transitional time for families. In fact, research shows that 85 percent of teens report their stress levels are a ecting their school performance. There are simple habits that parents can adopt to help reduce stress, both for themselves and for their children during the school year,Ž says education and parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba, who is the bestselling author of 22 parenting books and a frequent TODAY show contributor. Follow these easy tips to ensure the school year is a success for all members of the family.Ž € Promote the positive: Children take cues from their parents on how to handle and react to stress. Help promote positive feelings within the family by discussing whats happening each day while around the dinner table and by posting handwritten notes of encouragement around the house or in your childrens lunchboxes. Research also shows that praising your childs hard work and e orts rather than the Starting the school year o right: Backto-school tips for the whole familydesired outcome enhances their achievement. For example, aim to give more words of encouragement commending your children on time spent studying for a big test rather than the actual score they receive on that test. € Develop a shared calendar: The school year means sporting events, music lessons, after-school activities and PTA meetings all at once. One central calendar is crucial to keeping everyone on track and remembering appointments,Ž says Dr. Borba. Try creating a color-coded family command center to keep everyone organized. Include a family calendar for tracking schedules, family note boards for sharing messages and a storage area for saving important documents that will be needed at a later date. Keeping track of all the activities will help all family members feel more at ease, reducing stress. € Get enough sleep: Waking up early in the morning for school, combined with maintaining late hours for sporting practices, after-school activities or homework quickly translates into exhaustion. Sleep is fundamental to your entire well-being,Ž says Dr. Borba. Keeping children on consistent sleep schedule on weekends and school vacations also promotes healthy long-term sleep habits. € Become familiar with speci“ c stress-reduction techniques: Every person handles stress in di erent ways, especially when it comes to kids and teenagers. Dr. Borba recommends helping your children pinpoint habits and activities that help them reduce stress, and set aside time to do these activities with them. Your teenage daughter may respond positively to yoga classes as a form of stress relief, while the long, deep breaths required to blow bubbles can be calming for many young children.

Durbin Kids Care Club … Empowering kids to give backprime locations in both of the large Durbin Crossing amenity centers, the Durbin Kids Care Club has been able to supply a need and learn a valuable lesson in community outreach. Heather Patterson, the originator of this program, said that she wanted to give the kids an understanding at an early age that there are other children out there in needŽ and that they could do something about it. Camryn Simmons, an 11-year-old sixth grader at Swiss Point said, Being part of the Kids Care Club makes me feel good about myself because I know I am helping other people.Ž Tyler Patterson, a sevenyear-old second grader at Hickory Creek said, I like being part of the Kids Care Club because I help make other kids dreams come true.Ž Just recently the club collected clothing and shoes for a mission trip to Haiti. The participants of this trip were able to bring nine large suitcases “ lled with clothing, shoes and hats that went straight to a Haitian orphanage. The club also collected school supplies to be donated to the Tools for School, a non-pro“ t organization that serves St. Johns County in conjunction with the St. Johns County Educational Foundation. The club has also been able to reach out to other communities on County Road 210 and in Julington Creek through their Facebook page with over 125 members. The page helps keep everyone informed and updated about upcoming events and the successes of previous drives. The clubs mission statement says it all: The Durbin Kids Care Club was formed to empower children, who live in the St. Johns County, Florida area, to make a better world through hands-on service projects. It is our hope that through these projects, children will gain an enhanced awareness of others and develop a compassionate, giving spirit. We equip parents, teachers and youth leaders with the resources they need to involve kids in the good works that will mean a brighter future for all.Ž For more information on the Durbin Kids Care Club or how to get involved, contact Heather Patterson on their Facebook page, Durbin Kids Care Club.

CPS remotes, or clickers as some students and teachers have called it, have been utilized in the classroom for many years. Each remote has a keypad where students can type in an answer to a question on a projector screen and send it to their teacher. The teacher can take their answers and use them for grading or class feedback in the form of percentages. But this year marks a change in the use of the familiar technology. Now, students will have their own clicker and take it to their various classes. By having the response system, students can come into the class and as soon as the class begins they can take a quiz,Ž states Robert Bruns, the AP World History and AP Art In late August, after a summer of quiet preparation, Allen D. Nease High School was buzzing with anticipation once more as students rushed in to pick up schedules, tour the school and attend orientations. Nerves were rattling for upcoming freshmen and those returning to the school had their hopes high for a successful new school year. Im making goals for myself to reach,Ž said Sid Carter, a Nease High School sophomore. Im preparing myself to do the very best I can because if I dont I am sure I will regret it later.Ž When asked about how his sophomore year will di er from his freshman year, Carter said, Now I know what I can change for the better this year based on my past mistakes.ŽNease HappeningsStudents nd preparation crucial for new school yearBy Samuel Wright, Nease StudentThis seemed to be the mood surrounding most high school students at this time of year. The beginning of the school year is an ideal time for students to be opportunistic by preparing to amend any problems that they experienced the year before. However, that is only a small part of the preparation and groundwork that students should have made before school began. For the past few months, students have spent their time by the pool reading classics such as Dickens Great Expectations and Steinbecks Of Mice and Men. In late August, students like Noah Bower, a pre-IB (International Baccalaureate) freshman, were wrapping up their summer homework and projects and were appreciative of the early work that helped set them up for success in advance. I feel pretty good about it [the upcoming school year] and I have done all my summer assignments in order to prepare. Hopefully middle school has prepared me enough for IB and for now I feel the work load is just right,Ž Bower said con“ dently. Con“ dence and personal success is exactly what the students will need this year to attain a sense of accomplishment and to feel satis“ ed when they walk out the door next June. Whatever is in store, it can be said that the 2012-2013 school year will be a very exciting and important roller-coaster ride for the students at Allen D. Nease High School. BTHS HappeningsCPS Response system dons a new role at Bartram TrailBy Kelly Boyer, BTHS StudentHistory teacher. At that point, the teacher and students can engage in a thoughtful discussion about the questions and the answers.Ž Classes often have a tendency where the smartest students in the class answer all the questions for everyone else, because no one wants to speak up. With the CPS Response system, this habit may come to a screeching halt. Bruns agrees that things may change, claiming It will make [students] feel more comfortable about being honest with a response during lecture because nobody knows how the next person responded to the question.Ž With the system, a student can tell when someone submits their answer, but no one except the teacher knows what each student answered. The feedback given is more honest and truthful, so no one knows if a certain student got the answer right or wrong at “ rst glance. With the arrival of this technology, other schools in the following years can possibly learn from and work o BTHSs example. We will be the model high school for this type of technology use that is already in the colleges,Ž boasts Bruns, We are the only school in the nation currently doing this program.Ž Seventeen AP classes and one Honors class will take advantage of this technology for the 2012-2013 school year. For a complete list of classes, visit the BTHS webpage at wwwbths.stjohns.k12.” .us. Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons will be celebrating World Retina Week from September 20 through 26.

These rods and cones work together to convert images into electrical energy, and channels that image to your brain. Diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration dominate my practice and are prevalent in North Florida,Ž says Dr. Russell Pecoraro, retina specialist with Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons. Macular degeneration is the number one cause of severe vision loss for those ages 55 and older and World Retina Week is in Septembera ects more than 10 million Americans. In the age group on 45 to 60, diabetic eye disease is the leading cause of blindness.Ž Dr. Pecoraro is a board certi“ ed ophthalmologist and one of the only full-time retina specialists in Clay County. Since joining the practice, he and his partners have established the Northeast Florida Macular Degeneration and Diabetes Eye Institute, the “ rst full-time center in Clay County dedicated to diseases of the retina. In the Institute, patient care is focused around management of complex eye diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Along with highly trained sta this specialty center o ers the latest in diagnostic testing and treatment. Clay Eye Physicians and Surgeons o ers comprehensive eye care in the following specialties: cataract surgery, cornea surgery, medical retina, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration, glaucoma surgery, Lasik surgery, cosmetic eye procedures, pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric eye exams.

I will have their recommendations to share in our next issue. There are several new books that have been released this month that are very newsworthy! Margaret Peterson Haddix has The Missing series. The “ rst book is Found the “ fth in the series is Caught She is a mastermind of cli hangers. If you havent ever read one of her books this series is a must. Another new book to be sure to read is Gordon Kormans Ungifted If you have never read a Gordon Korman book you need to pick up Schooled Somehow I have a feeling from the summary of his book that this is going to be another one to join Schooled as a dont miss itŽ book. Will share my opinion on it next month! Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead, author of the Newbery medal book When You Reach Me, is once again set in New York with the main character back again as he meets a new neighbor who considers himself a spy. It is de“ nitely on my to readŽ list. I am anxiously awaiting the latest 39 Clues book of the Cahills vs Vespers: Shatterproof by Roland Smith. I just found out that I,Q: Kitty Hawk is out. I cant wait to read it. This is another amazing series by Roland Smith. I just cant believe he has two books that were published the same month. Remember the cool book, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda? Well the third one is now out, The Secret of the Fortune WookAs the Florida sun churned out its last batch of sunburned teens, many Creekside students began cracking open books, dusting o old binders and locating where in their house they last saw their backpacks. Many students had summer bucketlists, “ lled with activities like trips, parties at the beach, movie marathons, sleepovers and the occasional sporting event. Many of these summer bucket-lists went into full swing during orientation, the summer equivalent of a mid-life-crisis. However, through all of the last-minute summer fun, students knew the looming school year would demand some serious preparation. If the intimidation of a new school year wasnt enough, a few students had to worry about an entirely new school and age group. But a magic carpet ride is not expected as one enters this whole new world. I think the biggest di erence will be the amount of time we have to complete the assignments,Ž speculated rising fresh-CHS HappeningsCreekside students go back to schoolBy Sarah Schreck, CHS Studentman Julie Brown. In middle school we could have a day after because we forgot to bring it in. I think high school will be only half credit if its turned in late.Ž She didnt do anything special to prepare because she might be preparing for the wrong things.Ž This is a reasonable caution, as one can never be sure of a teachers lesson plan or style of teaching. Summer assignments can give one a good look into planning for the school year and teachers websites can give some organizational insight. (Of course, students can also “ nd their teachers making the annual pilgrimage to Staples or O ce Depot a few weeks before school, but that may be considered too much research, too early.) Other than summer projects (like navigating Moby Dick or conjuring up ” ashcards), some students had other arrangements to worry about. Being section leader has required a lot of preparation and planning on my part. Instead of just being responsible for my own progress, I was suddenly responsible for the progress of 30 other people,Ž said Brianna Casey, the main clarinet section leader in the Power of Creekside marching band. During the last week of summer, there were hundreds of band students hard at work, marching under the oppressive August sun for hours on end, learning the upcoming years halftime show. Being a band o cer during the turbulent marching season demands a lot of hard work, but there arent any textbooks or worksheets out on the “ eld! I was forced to plan sectionals and learn the new music weeks ahead of time in order to be able to teach it to everyone else,Ž Casey shared. Im learning and improving along with my section. But there has been a de“ nite di erence between learning for my own sake and learning with the intention of helping others. Its been a lot of fun, though.Ž Notes from the Pacetti Bay Media CenterBy Contributing Writer Lynn Johnson, NBCT, Library Media Specialist, Pacetti Bay Middle Schooliee. The boys especially love these books. Who doesnt want to read something that takes us back to the Star Wars days? I just “ nished Lost in the River of Grass by Ginny Rorby, another one of the SSYRA books. Wow, my initial reaction was quickly replaced by a total turn around. I could not put the book down. There were excellent messages in the story and I learned so much about the Everglades. If you are looking for a believable story, no it is not believable, but it is well worth the time spent reading. I also read 90 Miles to Havana by Enrique Flores. This is the story of three brothers that were part of Operation Pedro PanŽ coming to Miami from Cuba. The youngest of the three, Julian, is very resourceful and manages to rise above his circumstances in spite of everything that comes his way. It was a very eye-opening story and speaks of bullying and what happens when you lower yourself to their level. Be sure to check out the Florida Heritage Book Festival September 13-15 in St. Augustine. There is a wonderful line up of authors presenting during this time. New location near Baptist South!

Veterinarian Owned and Operated Helping Hands of St. Johns County will be meeting on Friday, September 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Faith Community Church Community Center, located on County Road 210 next to Cimarrone. The Rippers from Sew Much Comfort will meet at 10:00 a.m. This months project will be Christmas trees for Community Peds Hospice. This is a yearly tradition and members decorate tabletop trees for families of hospice patients. Last year over 50 were donated. A representative from Community Peds will be at the meeting to accept the trees. If anyone would like to donate a two to three foot tree or decorations, please contact jacqphil@aol.com. Helping Hands relies solely on goods and services and nonmonetary donations from the community. On August 31 the group delivered a meal for the homeless in St. Augustine through Dining with Dignity. A delicious baked ham, oven roasted potatoes and green beans meal complete with dessert was prepared and served. Food was donated by Newcomers of St. Johns and Publix. At the regular meeting, the holiday project Helping Heroes Families was worked on. This years August 18, 2012 marked a milestone for Encore Dcor as we celebrated its “ fth year in business. It all started when we rolled the dice and bought our building in May 2007 with 90 days to get it ready. The layout was already perfect; the building just needed a bit of lipstick (or so we thought). Two weeks in to the remodel, we had barely made a dent in the prior 25 years of paint, wallpaper and six di erent types of ” ooring. It was time to call in reinforcements. We recruited family and friends to help us transform the old Marons Furniture building on San Jose Boulevard into Encore Dcor Upscale Consignment Store. It has been a grass roots e ort from the beginning. We spent nights working on the building and spent our days and weekends at auctions and estate sales buying up No dues, o cers or stressHelping Hands updateBy Contributing Writer Jackie Valyouproject will be a tribute to our local military families. These families sacri“ ce by serving our country and being supportive of their loved ones. Trees gaily decorated with red, white and blue bows with stars attached will be at First Florida Credit Union, Golf Club at South Hampton, St. Johns Golf and Country Club, Faith Community Church, the Cascades and several local neighborhoods on or before November 1. Each star will bear recipients Christmas/holiday sizes and interests. Anyone who wishes to take a star from the tree is asked to return it by December 1.Gifts are the donors choice. The chaplains at local bases will distribute gifts. All gifts must be new and unwrapped or placed in gift bag and returned to where the star was taken from.

With all this car time, I thought Id remind myself and you of the nursery song, Be careful little ears, what you hear.Ž Does your mind go straight to the radio? Mine does. Most days I play the positive music of 91.7 The Promise. Every song is safe for the whole family, the DJs dont cuss and its all-around edifying.

He reminded me that its important for kids to gain new privileges as they grow older. When choosing music and movies for our family, I try to keep this in mind. I save things for them to grow into.Ž No PG-13 at six years old here and likewise I dont want them singing catchy lyrics they dont understand or that Id be ashamed if they did! Oh be careful little ears what you hear! More than focusing on what our children shouldnt listen to, though, lets make sure we “ ll our time with encouraging things: € Talk with your kids in the car! € Drill math facts, states and capitols, and Spanish wordsmake it a fun game and then you have less homework to do at home € Check out stories on CD to listen to when youre in the car together € Choose favorite songs and sing together, laugh together, enjoy one another! € Listen, listen, listen! Speaking of listening... car time can be the perfect opportunity to catch up on phone calls. Lately I “ nd myself spending more time cultivating friendships with my girlfriends than with my children. Do you build relationship with your child with the goal of developing a friendship to last a lifetime? There is a lot I dont know, but one thing I do know for sure is that every child is unique and beautiful. I pray that as you spend time in the car itll be full of sweet memories and allow you a unique window into your childs heart.

Our therapists have the passion and skills to provide individualized care ensuring positive outcomes for patients. Physicians have trusted Atlas for 13 years and continually hear from the patients how professional the sta is and how pleased they were with the results. Community service has always been a special interest of Atlas.

Safety in sports is a priority and athletic trainers provide the knowledge and skills for injury prevention, immediate care when an injury occurs, and safe return to play after appropriate rehabilitation.

Contact us and let us know how we can be a part of your event and the growth of the community. Atlas also recognizes that all athletes do not wear jerseys. An athletes desire to return to sport is no more than someone elses desire to return to gardening, enjoying walks in the neighborhood or improving their abilities to perform basic activities of daily living. Our therapists are trained and experienced to care for patients of all ages and conditions. Everyone is special and given the care they deserve.

Looks like even in the future, people want a life different from the one they lead. So, factory worker Doug Quaid, portrayed by Colin Farrell, feeling stagnant and seeking a change even though he loves his life and his wife, visits Rekall for memories of a lifetime. His wife, Lori Quaid, played by Kate Beckinsale, is not a part of that lifetime, but other memories surface before Rekall can even initiate his di erent life. During his visit, he somehow discovers that he is a spy and before he knows it he is in a “ ght for his life. Not only at Rekall, but at home as well, life is not what he has always believed. His loving wife is now part of those he has to “ ght just to “ nd the truth of his own existence. Cohagen, performed by Bryan Cranston, is not just one of the countrys leaders, but seems to hold the key to Quaids, now otherwise known as Hausers past and the truths and “ ctions being uncovered. Underground forces led by Melina, portrayed by Jessica Biel, may also have answers for Hauser and a means of escape. Cohagen plans for domination of their planet and expects the return of Hauser to complete not only the mission but destroy the resistance. The early memory recovery at Rekall may have just monkey-wrenched or saved the future of the planet. The “ lm starts with fastpaced action and subtlety in leading Quaid to Rekall through the direction of Len Wiseman. United States Coast Guard Auxiliary updateBoaters must consider e ects of medication before leaving the dockBy Contributing Writer Robert A. Schultz, Public Affairs Of cer, United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 14-07and other factors that can cause fatigue in anyone,Ž says Richard C. Lavy, M.D. The physical condition of everyone on board should be assessed before leaving the dock. Lack of shade and over exposure to Movie ReviewTotal RecallDirected by: Len Wiseman. Starring: Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, and Bryan Cranston. Review by T.G. StantonRating: Okay, But Could Have Waited for Cable(3 out of 5) There is much more in special e ects and shoot-outs than real story through the rest of the movie. Romance is limited to the very end for Hauser and Melina, thought it is hard to determine if there is just little chemistry between Biel and Farrell or if it is in the way it is written and directed. More sparks are observed between Biel and Beckinsale in the never-ending chick-“ ght that has to be included in movies of this nature than their relationships with Farrell. The original movie had frequent bits of comedy that have been completely left out of this version and are sorely missed. Action movies with little story need a dose of comedy. Again, the action and special e ects are well done and hold your attention, but little else in this movie does so. As a new version, it would probably have been better if I had not enjoyed the original.the sun and heat along with ever changing sea conditions can bring on dehydration, dizziness and heat exhaustion. Drowsiness or confusion will impair the ability to operate a boat safely much like too much alcohol. Recognize the signs of medical distress and know how to call for help. Depending on geographic area, use VHF marine channel 16 or call 911. Know before you go. Remember this acronym BOAT SAFE … it stands for € Bring plenty to eat and drink … avoid dehydration € Operate the boat in a safe and responsible manner € Always wear a life jacket € Take a boating safety course € Sun, wind and temperatures can be more of a factor than boaters think € Annual courtesy vessel safe check € File a ” oat plan … leave it with someone who will take action if you are overdue € Evaluate the readiness of operating crew and passengers … it is ok to not get underway when there is doubt For more information go to www.uscgboating.org or for a boating safety class contact the Coast Guard Auxiliary at www. cgaux.org.

Reintroduce Your Pet To Activity! Lace and leather! Thats leading the pack in the shopping meccas aisle for fall 2012! Lace for daytime is in.Ž Its made of more coarse woven fabrics and in tones of rich colors like plum and bottle green or navy. Full length sheath dresses made in lacy fabrics hang on rounders ready for the early shoppers! This is a new wave of thinking for you edgy FFFs (Fashionable Florida Friends). Leather dresses and camisole tops in an array of colors are shown on the pages of the many thick periodicals piling up in my o ce mailbox. This takes the bar a lot higher than my black leather pants that I consider a fashion splurge! Layer a little leather jacket over your knee length sheath dresses for a great fall 12 combo! Colors are rich and are the traditional fallŽ hues that come to our minds like oranges, rust, gold and brown. Along with Fashion UpdateFall 12By Donna Keathley, dkeathley designsthat, plum, burgundy and navy are showing their stu Ž too! So there is something for everyone out there no matter what your color palette might be. Legwear is big again this year and I love it! Patterned hosiery is still vogue alongside the opaque tights that we now consider a fashion staple. This legwear statement gives a nice “ nishedŽ look to any ensemble. Maybe we can thank Princess Kate for re-birthing the hosiery industry! Trench coats still rate high on the list and the little light weight parachute fabric ones rate high in my closet. I have several; after enjoying a little black one for several seasons I began picking up one here and there in fun colors and even one in a hounds-tooth print. When its a windy or overcast day I just throw one on over skinny black pants and walla! I am done!Ž Pencil skirts are a biggy; everyone looks nice with this little number on and your hemline can be anywhere thats good for you. You can top this look with something oversized or a smart compact little sweater set. Again, hosiery “ nishes this look nicely too. Pants are all over the place with wide big legs, skinny legs or boot cut legs. Whatever works for you is in! I love the wide palazzo look for a dressy look as we look forward to going into the holiday season (did I really say that?) Hues of blue are out there to replace our standard little black numbers. So you gals that look good in navy, buy it up this year because seasons go by that you cant “ nd a thing on the shelves in blue„especially navy shoes! What to wear to work? Suits! We have seen a return to the most foolproof way of taking care of business. Suits with a pull-together portrait: the two pieces match. Wear your suit with either a skirt or pant, but both are ” ared at the bottom. The jacket is tailored with shoulders high and waist nipped in. The desired impression is that you are in command, so heels and good posture are essential and I think hose are too, my FFFs. The U11 boys Swamp Life 3v3 soccer team scored 20 goals in the “ nal three games to win the Challenge Sports 3v3 National Championship for their division at Walt Disney Worlds ESPN Sports Complex on August 5, 2012. The weekend tournament win was a perfect ending to a fun-“ lled season. The team entered the quarter“ nals with four close games Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, Coaches Jim Dwyer and Kyle Guthrie led the team as they battled the Volcanoes to a 6-4 win to advance to the semi-Swamp Life wins 3v3 national championship“ nals. Swamp Life then defeated Unreal Madrid in the semi-“ nals to advance to the championship game. After being tied at halftime in the championship game, Swamp Life took the lead in the second half and never looked back. They won with a score of 6-3 against a very tough Lake County Rush team. Congratulations to Coach Dwyer, Coach Guthrie, Jackson Brennan, Jimmy Dwyer, River Guthrie, Brandon Marchand, Joe Markey and Herbie Steigelman on their big win! Loggerhead swimmers are back to practice after a much deserved week long break for the team. During the months of July and August, JCLA swimmers swam in many championship meets. July was the Florida Age Group Championships held in Gainesville at the OConnell Center, in which 25 athletes quali“ ed for this meet and the Florida Swimming Senior Champs held in Sarasota. In August the team traveled to Tallahassee to swim in the Area 1 and 4 Champs. Head age group coach John Hulvey was selected to coach Loggerheads dive into another yearBy Contributing Writer Jacalyn Morton the 13-14 boys in the Southern Zone age group championships in Rockwell, Texas. Loggerhead swimmers Brittney Campbell and Evan Jacob were on the all-star team. Jacob placed “ rst in the 400 IM getting a Junior National cut 4:35.40. Campbell dropped 30 seconds o her 100 freestyle. At the Southern Zone Senior Champs in Plantation, Florida, JCLA swimmer Dani Gordon “ nished “ rst in the 200 breaststroke. Gordon was also mentioned in Swimming World Magazine for her third place “ nish in the breaststroke in the USA Swimming Sectionals in Ft. Lauderdale, getting national press coverage. In the past four years, Loggerhead Aquatics has grown tremendously. This team started in 2008 and is based out of Julington Creek, but with many swimmers coming from out of town and surrounding areas. JCLA has many sponsorship opportunities available for businesses to participate. Please contact Tina Tayag or Mary Ryan at tayagtina@yahoo.com or we4ryans@comcast.net for additional information.

The team was undefeated when play was suspended on the second day due to thunderstorms. They outscored the JYSC Fury White team 4-3 in an exciting game right to the end. They followed that with another win, this time 2-1 over WSC Fire in tough conditions on a wet “ eld. With storms canceling the rest of the tournament before the Clash could play their next game, the team “ nished undefeated and were declared co-champions of the U12 Silver Division with CCSC Red who were able to “ nish It all began 60 years ago in a backyard in Fair“ eld, Connecticut with a perforated plastic golf ball and a broomstick. An idea clicked with boys grandfather as he watched. He got some plastic balls from a nearby factory and after cutting various designs into the balls, discovered that eight oblong perforations worked best. A fun sport was born. Now some six decades later that plastic baseball has found a special spot in the summer activities of for our youth right here in St. Johns. Three years ago Brian Navin and Lou Fleming decide to share the fun their kids had with Wi e ball with the other kids from County Road 210 neighborhoods, so they started a Wi e Ball Camp. The “ rst year there were 30 kids joining in the Wi e ball fun. This year 84 kids joined in at the camp at St. Johns Forest Park. Coach Navin and Coach Fleming look upon this activity as a fun way to play sports. To just have fun ƒ the old-fashioned way. Just prior to camp, a weekend is spent building six “ elds named after professional ballparks. They even have their own replica of the Green MonsterŽ of Fenway Park and one of the Brick WallŽ at Wrigley Field. The kids are all placed on teams before the camp begins and taught the rules of Wi e ball. Yes, there are actually o cial rules for the game of Wi e ball, which date back to its beginning. Each camper receives a t-shirt which bears the logo of his or her team. Coach Fleming designed the logos with a little tongue-in-cheekŽ fun. Each is based upon a MLB team with a bit of a twist. The Astros are now the Wi -stros, the Blue Jays the Wi -jays, the White Sox have become the Wi -sox Creeks Clash U12 White team wins!By Contributing Writer Julie MartinHaving fun the old-fashioned way with Wi e ballBy Karl Kennelland on they go. This year activities were added to the weeklong program including cheer and dance programs. Wi e ball camp gives kids seven to 13 years old a great way to play together without the pressures of other organized youth sports. Many of the kids already play Little League Baseball and Pop Warner Football. So smacking around a baseball size plastic one more game with a tie giving them a 2-0-1 record. Team members include Antonio Solis, Jack McNamee, John Vaughan, Hunter Crist, Jacob Van Petten, Chip Martin, Jackson Brennan, Chase Pucci, Caleb Conlan, Herbie Steigelman, Matt Morgan and Cameron Arreche. They are coached by Nizam Emamdie. Way to go, Clash!ball with holes in it de“ nitely is a fun way to blow o some steam and play just for fun!

This has caused an increase in the mosquito population in St. Johns County. St. Johns County has not had a human case of mosquito-borne illness since 2003, but Duval County has had 15 human cases of West Nile Virus this year alone. Last year Duval County had 21 cases and two deaths from West Nile Virus. Across the country there have been over 1100 cases of West Nile and over 40 deaths. The Anastasia Mosquito Control District has increased mosquito population surveillance and trap monitoring, mosquito borne illness testing, overnight ground spraying and thermal fogging and is utilizing all of our resources to control the situation. There are also steps that you can take to protect yourself from mosquitoes and mosquito borne illnesses. These include: Five Ds of Prevention: € Dusk and Dawn (avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are seeking blood; for many species this is during the dusk and dawn hours) € Dress (wear clothing that covers skin) € DEET (use mosquito repellents including DEET on skin or pyrethrins on clothing when you are outside) € Drainage (check your home to rid it of standing water in which mosquitoes can lay their eggs). Tips on eliminating mosquito breeding sites € Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters. € Remove old tires or drill holes in those used in playgrounds to drain. € Turn over or remove empty plastic pots. € Pick up all beverage containers and cups. € Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. € Pump out bilges on boats. € Replace water in birdbaths and pet or other animal feeding dishes at least once a week. € Change water in plant trays, including hanging plants, at least once a week. € Remove vegetation or obstructions in drainage ditches that prevent the ” ow of water € Encourage your neighbors to eliminate sources on their own property Together we can successfully have a community-wide mosquito control program. For more information about mosquito control, make a service request, see where we are spraying, get on the no spray list or other information, please visit www.amcdsjc.org or contact the Anastasia Mosquito Control District at 471-3107.

A lot of these bigger “ sh are the same “ sh youve been trying to catch all summer long but have managed to avoid your bait or got tossed back for another day. After spending the last “ ve or six months gorging themselves on crabs, clams, bait“ sh and shrimp, many of these “ sh have managed to add to their length and girth. The size and quality of “ sh we experience in the fall is usually directly related to how well the shrimp are running for that year. Our annual shrimp run peaks in the early weeks of fall which often leads to superb St. Johns River “ shing for a variety of fresh and saltwater species. Red“ sh, sea trout, weak“ sh, ” ounder, croaker, sheepshead, drum and more can be expected to make a showing at some point this fall to take advantage of the shrimp dinners the river will be o ering. Docks, bridges, holes, channels and sandbars will all be locations youll want to give a try. This years shrimp run has been slower than an average year, but great considering how much rain we have received. Despite the rain, we have shrimp in the river as far south as Green Cove with heavier Summer brought a relief to many students: a time to relax, make plans with their friends and family and forget about school for a couple months. Thats not to say that the Panthers laid o on their summer work or summer training, however. But now, the “ rst few days of school means its back to business for Nease; the work begins anew in the classroom and on the “ eld. For teachers who double as coaches, this year brings yet another demanding yet rewarding challenge of grades, teamwork and victories. For the fall season, the football players will be hard at work with new coach Shane Nease Sports RoundupBy Elena Castello, Nease StudentMatthews. The football team has been training very hard and all the players are ready to take on other schools with new strategies, new players and a new attitude. This year will surely be a success and the team will turn over a new leaf this year. Cross country, golf and swimming are also a big part of Neases fall athletics. Rain or shine (literally, because they ran the “ rst day of school in pouring rain), the cross country team will strive to be even better this year. And with senior Mac Reynolds no longer at Nease, there are some big shoes to “ ll. The team practices every afternoon with head coach Michael Rivera. A new crew team at Nease is sure to bring victories and trophies to those who pursue this great water sport. With training a few days during the week and Saturday mornings, the team is ready to train and win this school year. Basketball starts conditioning in a week and although many seniors graduated, this rebuilding year for the team will be a fun challenge for the Nease Panthers. With all the sports starting with a fresh new season, its time to get back in the stadium, bleachers or sidelines and cheer on the best of the best!Captain Davids Fishing ReportBy Captain David Lifkaconcentrations closer to town and beyond. Doctors Lake, Shands Bridge, Ortega River railroad bridge and the mouth of Julington Creek are all spots to try the next time you go shrimping. With the arrival of fall we have still have a lot of “ shing and shrimping to look forward to on the St. Johns River. Fatter “ sh, more species and shrimp make fall one of the best times of year to “ sh. Fishing Report: Bass “ shing has been good up in the creeks. A strong croaker and yellowmouth bite almost anywhere in the river. Docks are holding red“ sh. Whether you catch one, some or none, the family time spent “ shing will last a lifetime.District IV of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and the Duval County Extension Service will sponsor this exciting 10th annual horticultural event on Saturday, September 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It will be held at the Duval County Extension O ce at 1010 North McDu Avenue.

These sports include cross-country, golf, swimming, diving, cheerleading, volleyball and football. Each of these teams have been preparing for their season of meets and games with camps and conditioning all summer long. But lets focus on football, where the time is here yet again for everyone to get together on those exciting Friday nights, cheering on their black and blue team with Bear Pride. As well known, last year held for a winning season with the Bartram Trail Bears football team. Making it all the way to the state semi-“ nals, with a record of 12-2, they have much to live up to this year. A signi“ cant number of seniors graduate every year, many of whom played on the football team. With 29 players gone from last year, including Nate Peterman, the star quarterback, many people are looking down upon the new team of Bears. However, after talking with head Coach Sutherland and a few of the players, they dont seem too worried. When asked how he thought the upcoming season would play out, Coach Sutherland has only one word to describe it, Awesome!Ž He further emphasizes that his team was built on hardworking ethics and dedication. Its a team e ort where everyone believes in each other, that they can get the job done,Ž says Thomas Gallitz, a senior and starting varsity kicker for the Bears. P.J. Blazejowski, now a junior at Bartram Trail and the new starting quarterback to replace Peterman, talks about the big shoes he has to “ ll. I know for me, playing last year under Nate was really a blessing. He taught me most of what I know and its great to be able to play under those lights knowing Im a better player because of him.Ž Blazejowski further explains, Now that all of the old seniors are gone, its time for us to continue what they started for this program. We have the same expectations, which is the state championship. So, even though we are missing all of the The Dragons soccer team won the national championship title for U9 3v3 soccer at the national playoffs held August 2 through 5 at Disneys Wide World of Sports. In the “ nal playoff game, the Dragons won 3-2 over the undefeated USBG team of Lakeland. There were 14 U9 teams in all competing for the championship title. Congratulations to Lauren Black, Victoria Stachowiak, Miriam Abikhaled, Olivia Glass, Claire King and Coach Mike Glass!Dragons 3v3 soccer team wins national championship BTHS Sports RoundupA new year, a new teamBy Megan Grant, BTHS Studentbig players from last year, we can use our own identity and talent as a team to continue to pursue excellence this year!Ž Throughout the summer, the team has been pre-season conditioning with weightlifting and agility camps. They prepare physically and mentally as they are already watching “ lm and improving their plays to beat the opposing teams to come. Everyone shows con“ dence and readiness to face whatever challenges are thrown at them this season. As the saying goes, Hard work beats talent, when talent doesnt work hardŽ and it appears that this team has both. They may have lost some key players, but that doesnt stop the goals that the Bartram Trail Bears have set for themselves this year. Go Bears!

At this camp we work on the new half time show with the help of our amazing drum majors Mary Polidan, Drew Booher and Paige Zyserman. We also couldnt do it without Mr. Rick Fowler, the director; Mr. Keith Hall, our assistant director; A behind the scenes look at The Power of CreeksideBy Contributing Writers Emily Long and Amanda Williams, CHS Students Mr. David Renn, our assistant instructor; Mr. Drew Chiodo, our marching tech; and of course Ms. Jess Frantz, our guard coach. This band camp is four days from 8:00 in the morning to 4:00 in the afternoon. Yes, its in the middle of August, and yes, its really hot. Despite this fact, we work tirelessly to perfect marching the “ rst one or two songs of the show„we may even start to play the music while marching to the “ rst two songs. This year, The Power of Creekside is proud to present the show I Want My MTVŽ including I Want My MTVŽ for our opening song. If you want to know our other songs you can come and see our halftime show at any Friday night home football game at Creekside or you can see us at the competitions that The Power attends. On November 3 we will present our show at Fleming Island for the Florida Bandmasters Association (FBA) marching assessment. This is one thing we constantly work toward. From 3:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., several high schools will present their shows and The Power of Creekside is proud to be one of them. Its true that band is a lot of commitment. We have practice every Tuesday and Thursday and games on Fridays. But with this commitment comes a bond. The Power of Creekside is really one huge family of 194 members. We all have something in common and were all working toward the same goal. Suddenly its not just about one person, its about the whole band and if one person makes a mistake, we all make a mistake. But were all watching out for each other, too; its an experience unlike any other and being a part of it is de“ nitely rewarding. Last year, the Power of Creekside received a Superior at the FBA marching assessment for the fourth year in a row. The Power is looking forward to another great season and hopefully another Superior. While band is a lot of hard work, its worth it. Remember to come and see The Power of Creekside at any Friday night home football game!
