from the city and has accepted
the same position at neighbor-

Monday said he's retiring from
Atlantic Beach after 20 years as
the building official. His last day

Ford said that he was offered
the Neptune Beach Building
Official position and has accept-

Tony Perez-Guerra, earlier this

The Jacksonville Beach
Police Department has cleared
an officer of alleged miscon-
duct after a former City
Councilman complained about
the officer drawing a weapon
during a routine traffic stop.
Mitch Kinsey, who is retired
from the Jackson\ille Sheriff's
Office and a former
Jacksonville Beach Councilor,
complained to Officer Shane
Watson's supervisors that the
officer unnecessarily pulled out
a firearm after Kinsey refused
orders to remain in his vehicle
at a routine traffic stop.
Kinsey was stopped at 10
p.m. Jan. 20 at Fairway Lane
and Seabreeze Avenue for driv-
ing 15 mph above the posted
speed limit and failing to stop
at a stop sign en route to an
alarm at his condominium,
according to a police report.
A departmental complaint,
generated by police after the
incident, also cleared Watson
of lying about Kinsey running

the stop sign.
The final review and report
were signed -off Jan. 26 by
Police Chief Bruce Thomason.
Watson said he ordered
Kinsey to remain in his vehicle,
believing that he might be an
escape risk. Kinsey opened the
driver's door and was observed
reaching around his back with
his right hand, prompting
Watson to draw his weapon for
protection, according to the
"Officer Watson drew his
weapon in response to a per-
ceived threat. Mr. Kinsey's
furtive movement of reaching
behind his back was substan-
tial justification for Officer
Watson to pull his weapon in
preparation for an imminent
assault," note the findings of
the investigation.
"I would expect any officer
confronted with a similar set of
circumstances to react in the

On speed humps, garbage

service and bridge work

No decision was the only decision for controversial
issues in Neptune Beach Monday as city councilors failed
to come up with definitive solutions for the Kings Road
Bridge, a speed hump policy and deciding on the level of
garbage service for the city.
Some of those issues such as the Kings Road Bridge -
have been discussed for over four years, while others -
such as the garbage issue are more recent.
But the one thing the issues have in common is that
councilors say they need more time to make a decision.
Discussion at Monday's Council workshop meeting on
the issues included:
*Kings Road Bridge
The council agreed to have the city staff solicit bids to
have the dilapidated wooden bridge replaced with anoth-
er wooden structure to see what the costs would be.

The Neptune Beach Elementary PTA is spearheading a
fuiT~iralffigleffort for construction of a handicapped'dcces-

The PTA has launched a two-year plan to upgrade one of
the school's two playgrounds to accommodate disabled stu-

The school is one of 16 regional sites in the United States
and the only in Florida to offer a MOVE (Mobility
'Opportunities Via Education) program an educational
course designed to build independent living skills for dis-

One of the PTA's goals for making the playground handi-
capped accessible is to integrate the disabled children with
the rest of the school population.
"Since the upgraded playground will be suitable for chil-
dren of all ages and abilities, we hope to find ESE [disabled]
students playing alongside the other children," said Sheri
Nicholson, who is involved in the effort to upgrade the

How do you spell "winner" if
you're competing in the Rawlings
Elementary School spelling bee?
Anna Stamatogiannakis, no new-
comer to the art of putting letters
together in their proper order, was
the last speller standing on stage at
Rawlings Friday afternoon.
With two of the original 10 fifth
grade contestants remaining, Daelen
Eiberger was stumped by
"escapade," putting Anna in striking
She breezed by "escapade" then
finished with the final word -
"devotee," to take the title of the
2006 Rawlings spelling champ.
Anna's mother, Alice
Stamatogiannakis, said the challenge
of their surname has helped make
Anna "so good at spelling."
Not much time could be devoted
at home to help Anna prepare for
the Rawlings spelling bee, the moth-

mother, who was beaming after
Anna won.
"It's just natural. She's pretty
good," Anna's mother said. "We're
all pretty good spellers," she said,
referring to the Stamatogiannakis
After six rounds of competition in
the Rawlings cafetorium, where their
classmates watched and listened
from their seated positions on the
floor, three spellers remained: Anna,
Daelen and Lexi Panczykowski,
whose family name is three letters
shorter than the winner's.'
Anna heads next to the St. Johns
County spelling bee, which will be
held at the School Board office at 9
a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15.
There she'll compete with fifth-
graders through eighth-graders from
throughout the county.
Anna Stamatogiannakis reacts
Friday as she is declared winner of
Rawlings Elementary School's fifth-
grade spelling bee. She will repre-
sent Rawlings at the district spelling
bee Feb. 15.

Smith said he called Forbes to
"give him a heads up immedi-

announced he had already

Implement some ideas from a proposed policy he
has drafted into Sembach's policy and discuss the
issue again at the Feb. 20 workshop meeting.
The council for over a year has struggled with
how to handle requests from residents who want
to have speed humps placed along their streets to
slow traffic when other residents on the street
don't want the traffic calming devices. The issue is
primarily in neighborhoods east of Third Street,
near the beach.
How to handle traffic calming in that area in
general has. been a Work in progress for even
The city in 1998 and again in 2003 paid con-
sultants to study traffic calming including speed
!"bumps" and speed "humps" east of Third Street.
But late last year the councilors asked Sembach to
sttidy the issue again after they received numerous
requests from residents for and against placing
speed "humps" along their neighborhood streets.
As a result of that study, Sembach said the city
needed to draft an official speed hump policy as
has been done in other cities to minimize the
political nature of placing such traffic calming
The councilors agreed and tasked Sembach with
drafting a policy. In the meantime Weldon appar-
ently had been drafting his own policy. Both were
presented and discussed at Monday's meeting.
In Sembach's policy; in order for a street to
receive a speed hump, among other things, 85
percent of the vehicles which travel along the
street must travel 5 mph or above the posted
speed limit; 67 percent of the residents along the
street must want the speed humps via petition;

A few residents spoke at Monday's meeting and
voiced varying opinions of what they wanted to
see in the new garbage contract. Some wanted the
service to stay the same, while others wanted
minor changes.
After the residents spoke, Mayor Dick Brown
said "I'm not sure if we will ever get a consensus
from our residents [on the garbage issue]."
But later in the meeting, he and other coun-
cilors said they needed more time to gather infor-
mation from residents before deciding what level
of service to go with.
The issue was postponed until a special meeting
scheduled Feb. 13.
Councilor Harriet Pruette said Tuesday that she
feels it's important to hear from the citizens in ref-
erence to what they want for garbage service.
"I' m hoping that word gets out and the citizens
either call us or email us. I would like to at least get
a feel of where its going," she said, adding that she
realizes that the councilors will not hear from all
the city's garbage customers in two weeks.
"[But] I certainly would like to hear from some
of the community."

"The message is if you get,

mayor," Sharp said. "I can't do
anything about it and I won'
do anything about it."

Letters to the editor:

Must be a happy medium

for development in the area

To the editor:
As a 15-year resident of
Atlantic Beach, I'm continually
dismayed by remarks concern-
ing Mayport and development
there. While I can appreciate
the concern of our citizens to
avoid becoming like South
Florida, where I spent the first
25 years of. my life, I don't
understand everyone's fear of
improvement. Articles contin-
ually make references to "his-
toric Mayport" or "quaint fish-
ing village," but no one ever
talks about what a dump the
place is in its current state.
My friends visitfrom out of
town and see the sign about
"Historic Mayport Fishing
ViUage," and laugh when they
actually see the place!
-'Talk about a place that could
use SOME. development!. I
agree that condo high rises one
after the other is-not what our,
Community needs,: but
Mayport is at the complete
opposite end of that spectrum
Somewhere, there's a happy
medium, and I wish'everyone
would talk about that, instead
of dwelling on their ideal of a
place that really isn't.

Our family has been shop-

j20 years. Through the years,
we have experienced good and

To the editor:
What does "affordable hous-
ing" mean? Affordable in New
York is different from afford-
able in Jacksonville. To me it
means either you can afford
the neighborhood or you can't.
To most of us, this would mean
that Manhattan does not have
"affordable housing"; neither
does Malibu or Santa Barbara.
With no more vacant land at
the beach, some property own-
ers are looking at subdividing
larger lots. If there is an excep-
tionally large lot that can rea-
sonably accommodate two or
three houses instead of one,
this will not only provide more
housing, but the housing will
be more affordable. Perhaps
three homes priced at
$400,000 could be built instead
of one home priced at $1 mil-
lion +.
We saw what happened
when one Atlantic Beach prop-

To the editor:
Over the past six months,
hundreds of low income fami-
lies have lost their homes here
in our beaches community.

the iceberg. Mayport Trace,
Lakeside Mobile Homes,
Buccaneer Trailer Park, The.
SPalms iand the list keeps grow-
S ing) are all low-income com-
plexes that have been shut
down in the past six months.
Although the developers and
municipal governments
describe this as revitalizationri,
there are many unintended neg-
ative consequences that are hap-
pening as a result. This cbmnu'-'
nity neds te6 'be aware of' fe''
ramifications of hundreds of
low-income families being
forced out of their homes.
First, there will be a negative.
impact on our local businesses
as these residents are our service
workers. They are the people
that working our restaurants, our
stores, our hotels and our gas
stations. They make minimum
wage or slightly above. They are
being forced to relocate to other
parts of Jacksonville such as the
Westside or Northside where,
there are still affordable housing
units available. They will not be
commuting back to the beach
for a minimum wage job. The)'
won't be able to afford the gas
nor will they want the long bus
commute. They can find mini-
mum wage jobs in the parts of
town where; they move: In
order to attract these workers
businesses will be forced to pay
higher wages. The service
industry will suffer and the
economy will suffer.
Secondly, loss of affordable
housing is the #1, cause of
homelessness in the United
States. The sector of the home-
less population that is increas-
ing at the highest rate is families
with children. Forcing families

dates during the selection

erty owner dared to. "destroy
the character" of the neighbor-
hood by trying to subdivide
her land. The same people who.
lament the increase in housing
prices are the same ones who
do not want people to be able
to subdivide their property. I
guess "keeping the character"
of the neighborhood means
larger lots with more expensive
homes. This does not exactly
mesh with their calls for
"affordable housing".'
If the character of the neigh-
borhood is that important,
then they should make the
owner a reasonable offer, to
purchase the property so that
they can manage it as they see
fit. But until they start paying
the mortgage and property
taxes, they have no say in how
it should be sold.

Push again for a high school at Mickler's

To the editor:
,Now is the time for all Ponte Vedra res-
idents to get involved with their future
high school. If you attended the recent
meeting at Landrum Middle School on
Jan. 19, 2006, you heard [Schools super-
intendent Joseph] Dr. Joyner admit that
originally, he, the St. Johns County
School Board members, and the Ponte
Vedra High School Site. Selection
Committee were all in agreement that the
Guana site, now referred to as the Mickler
Road site, was the best, site for the pro-
posed new high school. He explained
That he changed his direction and began
to pursue the Talbots site after he received
signals'from Tallahassee that the gover-
nor would not look favorably on the
'release of the Mickler Road site for the
new high school and the Tournament
Players Championship organization
advised that the TPC parking site was not
for sale.
Yes, the Mickler Road site may have
appeared to be a difficult site to obtain,
however, we all know that the "best"
course of action is often the more difficult
course to pursue, but the rewards are fre-
quently worth the effort. Without revis-
iting the obvious reasons why the Mickler
Road site is superior to the Talbots site, I
find it most difficult to understand why
we as a community would not Want to
pursue the "best" site for the new high

Subdividing can help

reduce home prices

attention to the Mickler Road site.
I believe the ball has been dropped and
valuable time has been wasted. Let us not
continue to drop the ball by letting
,another day pass without getting person-
ally involved. It's time for everyone to
visit the three proposed sites and see for
themselves what is being debated. Get
the facts and make up your own mind.
Then, let your elected and other public
servants, from the School Superintendent
to the Governor, know that you want the
"best" site for the new Ponte Vedra High
School and will accept nothing less.
It is time for each of us to let those
responsible know exactly how we feel on
this issue and what we expect them to do
for our community and the local chil-
dren.. Yes, call and write Dr. Joyner, the
school board members, your county com-
missioner, your state representative and
senator, and the Governor. Remember,
you are paying their salaries, and our
local and state officials are in office to
serve us, the people. Their decisions must
be made for the greater public good. Let
them know what you expect from them
so they clearly see the direction they must
take. Please, get involved now to assure
the children of Ponte Vedra get the new
high school they deserve.

'Senior Senators

Just ask 1952 Fletcher High grad Patti
The Fernandina Beach resident serves
as a hostess for a "Senior Senators"
luncheon held twice a year in
Jacksonville Beach.
There are times, Niehaus says, when
she feels less like a hostess and more
like a ramrod riding herd on wandering
"I have a hard time getting them to
stop milling around and eat," said
Niehaus about Fletcher alumni from
the 1940s and '50s who attended the
third Senior Senators luncheon

P onte Vedra resident Linda
Bernard, organizes an
annual event that she
says with a smile is "the Social
Event of the Year."

Church's Spam Cook-Off is a
party designed just for the fun

was a Spam
Party given by
a friend from
a church she previously
attended. Changing the idea, a
little bit, Bernard decided a
cook-off using the canned
meat product would be a great
way to get people together.
More than 10 years later,
Bernard and her husband,
John, enjoy the event as
much as when they started.
This is true despite the fact
that Spam is not on the menu
at their house many other '
times during the.year.
Bernard admits that there is
some "whining and complain-
ing" from the congregation
when plans for the cook-off
are announced every year.
Before long, however, peo-
ple get caught up in the quest
for a suitable recipe to enter
in the competition,
SAccording to Bernard's
"Spam Rules," each dish sub-
mitted for judging must have
Spam as an ingredient to be
eligible. Entrants can choose
from five categories: appetizer,
salad, vegetable, main dish,
and dessert.
The competitive spirit runs
high and people plan weeks in

"It's getting bigger and better every

the three-hour covered dish event
which serves as a mass class reunion for
Fletcher grads in their 60's, 70's and
Niehaus held the first Senior Senators
luncheon in January 2005. Attendees
pay $5 at the door and are encouraged
to sign in and wear a name tag.
Niehaus said once the mingling
begins it's hard to stop.
Fletcher graduates from the mid-
1940s to the early 1960s attended the
Senior Senators luncheon, held every
SJanuary and June.
The $5 cover charge helps defray the

advance to have a suitable
recipe: With a little imagina-
tion, many recipes have been
adapted to include Spam. Just
a few examples provided by
Bernard are Fettucini
Primavera, Quesadillas, Party
Dips, and Cheeseballs.
The dessert category may be
the most challenging, but
over the years there have been

The second luncheon netted a profit
of $100. Saturday's record turnout net-

future luncheons.
Proceeds from Saturday's luncheon
will also go to Fletcher High's scholar-
ship fund in the memory of Richard
Medlock, a 1951 Fletcher grad who died
last month.
"Someone said, 'We may have to get
a bigger place,'" Niehaus added.
"I started this because a lot of people
don't want to go to a formal class

them because at our age sometimes you

Win or lose, PV's Haywood

closest thing to racing royalty

H urley Haywood of
Ponte \'edra Beach is a
five-time winner of the
Rolex 24-hour race at
Daytona International
But around-the-clock racing
can reduce past champions
to spectator status in the time
it takes to change a lane On J:
Turner Butler Boulevard.
Haywood's name and race
car number is synonymous
with endurance racing. He
has won 10 endurance races ,
including Le Mans three
times and the 12 Hours of
Sebring twice.
His famous No. 59 Porsches
are no stranger to Daytona's
Victory Lane.
But past victories are no
guarantee of success in a 24-
hour race. Water pumps -
break. Wrecks happen. Even
simple things like headlights
not working can do in a
sleek, six-figure race car.
Hurley, I feel your pain.
I attended Saturday's Rolex
24 as a fan, not as a member
of the media, and pulled for
Haywood's No. 59 Porsche-,
Fabcar to win.
Havywood's car, sponsored
byJacksonville's Brumos
Racing, started in the 10th
position, but crashed an hour
later with co-driver Joao'
Barbosa at the wheel.
A series of unfortunate
mechanical events followed,
including faulty headlights at
I left the track around 9
p.m. feeling good because
Haywood's car had finally
cracked the top-15 and
seemed to be gaining on its
garage mate, the much faster
No. 58 Porsche-Fabcar, which
eventually finished fourth
Haywood's entry wound up
a disappointing 36th out of
'66' starters, completing only
559 laps of.the 734-lap event.
Around-the-clock racing
takes an unmerciful toll on a
race car.
A team's ability to make



speedy repairs in the pits or
- in the.paddock area'is the dif-
ference between finishing the
2,613-mile race or watching it
*on the Speed Channel.
Haywood was not alone in
his misfortune. Other hduse-
.hold, racing names such as
i.yle Petty, Rusty W\allace,
Tony Stewart and Indy racer
Danica Patrick also failed to
drive under the checkered
Stewart probably spent
more time tooling around the
infield in a golf cart than he
did on the 3.56-mile, 14-turn
race track.
His Pontiac went through
seven alternators en route to
30th place.
Teammates Wallace and
Patrick retired from the race
before 11 p.m. with a blown
head casket.
After 24 hours, 0 minutes
and 40.031 seconds, the mar-
gin of victory by the winning
entry, a Lexus co-driven by
defending Indy 500 champ
Dan Wheldon, was one lap.
Wheldon was making only
his second start in a Daytona
endurance race. Haywood,
56, was making his 32nd in
the past 36 years.
Win or lose, Haywood is
nothing short of royalty at
the Rolex 24. He is the.epito-
me of class in the cockpit.
He'll be back next year for
a shot at another crown.
And he won't be a long-
shot, either.

Civil rights documentary at Flagler Teachers.

S"Dare Not Walk Alone: The'
War of Responsibility," a docu-
mentary focusing on the civil
rights struggle in St. Augustine,
will premiere Feb. 12 at 7 p.m.
in the Flagler College
The film examines the inter-
actions of race, class, responsi-
bility, the civil rights move-
ment, the hip-hop generation,
as well as St. Augustine, then
aand now. Film maker and
Flagler alumnus Jeremy Dean
was inspired by his parents'
focus on missionary work. '
"I think I have a kind of
heightened sense of cultural
and racial issues," he said.
"When 'I came 'to school [at
Flagler], it never sat very well
with me, going over to West
Augustine" [a poor, predomi-
Snantly black area west of the
train tracks near King Street]
and seeing the conditions
Dean faced many challenges
while completing his film
including trying to earn the
trust of the community he was
trying to document.
"I'm the young white guy
coming from the outside and
asking people to basically tell
their life story," he said. "It
takes some time."
Over time, Dean: was able to
develop relationships with
people who participated in
civil rights protests and others
in the West Augustine commu-
"There's still a lot of emo-
tional scars and a lot of dis-
trust," Dean said. "You don't
want to just go in there and use
them to make a statement. I'm
still very much involved with

all of them." i
The premiere of "Dare Not
Walk Alone" will be held in the

Flagler College Auditorium
Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. This event is
free and open to the public.

FMS soccer teams remain unbeaten

Fletcher Middle School's boys
and girls soccer teams remained
undefeated with victories
Monday night over Arlington
to run their respective records
to 7-0.
In the first game of the
evening, first half goals by
Dylan Taylor, Arian Brent, Jake
Giusti, Tyler Ramos and Gage
Coyne helped spark the
Senators to an 8-0 victory.
FfS sprinted out to a 6-0 lead
by halftime, then ended the

game early on second half goals
by Tony Kattreh and Riley
In the nightcap, the Lady
Senators looked to end things as
quickly as possible because of
approaching storm clouds.
Katie Sambito and Hunter
Somers each scored three goals
for the Lady Senators in the first
half, with Jordon Dixon,
Brittany Duffy and Hayley
Chandler also finding the back
of the net during the first 30
minutes of play as FMS took a 9-
0 advantage.

The teams were slated to
compete Wednesday at Fort
Caroline, then have 14 days off
before their next scheduled
games Feb. 15 against Mayport.
"They've got two weeks off
because of a trip to Washington,
D.C." said boys head coach Jeff
Casner. "They're playing very
well right now and hopefully
that will continue once they get
back from that break.'
In seven wins this season, the
boys team, has yielded just one
goal to Mayport in a 4-1 vic-
tory in the season opener.

Nease girls soccer reaches

regional semifinal contest

An easy Nease regional quar-
terfinal victoryy last Thursday, a
6-0 win over Lecanto, of Citrus
County, set up what was expect-
ed to be a tough semifinal
match with Bishop Moore of
Orlando Tuesday night.
The winner of Tuesday's
game, played at Nease High,
travels to the St. Augustine-St.
Cloud victor Friday at 6:30 p.m.
Nikki Lombardo led Nease
with two goals against Lecanto,
at 22:13 and 4:15 of the first
half. She was assisted by Stacey
Hanburr on the first goal and
Jamie Silverberg on the second.
"Stacey made a great run and
made a great pass, and I just fin-
ished it," Lombardo said of her
first goal. "It was all teamwork.
"Jamie put a great ball into
the box," she said of Silverberg's
cross, "and it was easy for me to
get my head on it."
Other Panther scorers were
Hanburry at 14:53, with an
assist from Kristen Hoover, who
made a great run from the left;
Lisa Heise, on a penalty kick at
2:29 of the first half after Ashley
Delaney was taken down in the
Lecanto box; Lauren Crossan at
31:29 of the second half, with a
laser between the near post and
Lecanto goalkeeper Sam King;
and Alisha Barratt, with 6:28.

Lecanto coach Kevin Towne,
who has been coaching for 18
years, was impressed by what he
saw in Nease.
"The ball movement that
team had was unbelievablee"
said Towne, whose team fin-
ished 14-6-2. "We played 6A
schools, 5A schools, a lot of
good 4A schools, and that
team's, by far, the best I've ever
seen. They don't have a weak
part. They're solid from front to
Lecanto mounted what could
be considered just one serious
threat, at 23:55 of the second
half, with Hannah Marvin in
goal replacing Nease starting
keeper Catherine O'Donnell.
With the Nease defense keeping
forwards Maggie Mueller and
Natalie Burnett at bay,
O'Donnell had just four touch-
es, two kicks and two throws,
that occurred without pressure
until being replaced by Marvin
at 33:14 of the second half.
"I was freezing," O'Donnell
said of her lack of activity on a
chilly night. "I didn't get an)y
shots. That's, what I like,
though. If I don't have tc touch
it, and we're shooting like every
five seconds, that's fine with
me. Because we had so many
"It's just great that if I don't
have any touches, that's fine
because our defense is doing
the job," O'Donnell said as she

and Marvin combined for
Nease's 16th shutout, and
fourth in a row as part of an
ongoing string heading toward
Bishop Moore.
"We work really hard, and we
just work really well together,"
Dani Nelson, a senior member
of the Nease defense, said of
their effort. "We urge each
other on, look out for each
"The team works really well
together, and we open up in
the middle," said Nelson. "Our
outside mids come back for us;
we just pass it around."
Looking ahead to Tuesday's
match against Bishop Moore,
Nease coach Dave Silverberg
said his opponents' 17-8-1
record might be deceiving.
While the Hornets suffered
eight losses, they did defeat
New Port Richey, 2-0, last week
to earn a shot at the defending
state champions.
"Defensively we've got to
work to make sure to keep our
skills sharpened back there,"
said Silverberg, "because we're
going to see a team that's going
to challenge us."
Lombardo said she knew
what the Panthers had to do to
contend with the Hornets.
"We need to keep the intensi-
ty up," she said. "When we
have intensity, we are unbeat-
able. When we possess the ball,
we are unbeatable."

It's that time of year again --
post-holidays and pre-spring.
And that means it's time to get
back in fitness mode. Most of
us actually enjoy working out -- ---
and the energy boost it gives,
but few of us like what Scott
Tucker, managing partner of
World Gym in Ponte Vedra,
calls the "intimidation factor"
in many fitness centers.
"The minute you enter most
gyms you can spot the intimi-
dation factor," he says. "You
know that uncomfortable'..
feeling you get when you're
surrounded by people dressed
in inappropriate workout ,.-
apparel and what I call 'muscle
heads.'" '. .
"World Gym in Ponte Vedra
is the exact opposite,' says
Scott. "Rather than intimidate,
we invite!" That may be just
one of the reasons that World
Gym has been voted the No. 1
club in Jacksonville for the
past two years, according to
Folio Weekly. The professionals at
SWe're different than most
fitness facilities because we're sonal training by mergi
about customer service," says (left to right) are Dave
Pamela Slattery, general man- manager; Pamela Slattei
ager of the Ponte Vedra facility.
"Our members dictate how we run our gym."
S"We listen to our members and tailor a program that.
helps each member achieve his or-her goals," adds Scott.
S"Our members want a non-intimidating atmosphere that's
family-friendly, comfortable yet motivating and clean, so
that's what we provide."
As the company's motto states, "there's a world of rea-
sons to join World Gym," and the new facility in Ponte
Vedra the third WorldC Gym location opened in the
Jacksonville area in the past four years, certainly offers,

'Double Trouble' wins boat of the year award

C congratulations to
Captain John Hulsey
and his crew of Steve
McGuire, Cirus Marshall, John
Lipka and Greg Kupperman,
aboard the Double Trouble out
of St. Augustine. They were
awarded the coveted Boat of
the, Year award from the
Northeast Florida Marlin
Association- at the end of the
year banquet. The crew of
Double-Trouble also won a
beautiful trophy for catching
and releasing the most sailfish
over the season. They caught
66 sails.
Surf fishing up and down the
beach is holding up great.
Good catches of whiting are
being pulled up on the sand
from the Jacksonville Beach
Pier to below St. Augustine.
Several good trout catches were
made in the river across from
the Mike Scanlan boat ramp
and near Sisters Creek.

The weather has sent many
anglers to Rodman Dam seek-
ing bass and perch.
The Mayport Princess, with
Captain George Strate, made
two trips last week and had
happy anglers aboard each
afternoon. On Monday, anglers
'took pictures and cleaned nine

snapper to 13 pounds, a pair of
12-pound grouper and coolers
full of beeliners and seabass.
On Tuesday, a group' from
NAPA fished from the Princess
and brought 11 snapper to 14
pounds over the rail along
with dozens of beeliners and
Capt. Dave Sipler and Ken
Hubbard fished the surf with
fresh, dead shrimp last
Wednesday below P.V. and
caught 30 whiting along with a
shark. And last Saturday, Capt.
Dave, with the Dave Handa
party, used live shrimp in the
river to net 30 trout to three
pounds and a 21-inch redbass.
Wade and Kathy Randall
fished the surf at P.V. for a
catch of 22 whiting.
Last Thursday Butch Garvin
and Rusty Borthwick fished for
a couple of hours across from
the boat ramp at Mayport and
caught 25 speckled trout on
float rigs.
Larry "Fishman' Finch, with
Mike Lane, his wife and four-
year-old son, fished the jetties
and the canal last Saturday and
caught a dozen sheepshead at
the jetties before moving to the
canal near the Atlantic Blvd.
Bridge and netting ten redbass.
Three of the reds were more
than 27 inches.
George Bull Jr., with his
friend Carson Eddings, fished
several backwater creeks not
too far from Nassau Sound last
Friday and caught 10 redbass,
10 drum, apair of,flounder and
a sheepshead. They used live
shrimp and jigs for bait from
George's Bionic Bull.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier last week the fishing was
much improved. Most every
angler who fished through the
tide caught a mess of whiting.
Jim Davis cleaned 30 whiting,
James Potee had 22 whiting in.

If you see an unusual number
of people wearing red next
Friday, they may be trying to
tell you something. Friday
February the 3rd, is The'
American Heart Association's
"National Wear Red Day," a
campaign whose goal is to sup-
port and inform women of their
significant risks of heart disease.
By encouraging everyone to
wear red, the American Heart
Association hopes to raise
awareness of heart disease and,
inspire women to take charge of
their health.
Heart disease is the number
one killer of women in this
,country, although many are
unaware of the risks of heart
disease in women. In fact, most
still consider heart disease to be
a "man's problem," and often
ignore their cardiovascular
According to the American
Heart Association, "Go Red For
Women" is a nationwide move-
ment to empower women to
love and save their hearts
through lifestyle choices and
actions. By joining together

nies and organizations across

Q. Dr. Smith, my wrist
hurts when I fish. Casting
my line, and reeling in is
painful along the outside of
my wrist and into my thumb.
What do you think this is?
Based of your description of
outer (radial) wrist and thumb
pain with specific activities,

there are two common prob-
lems that come to mind. The
first is known as "DeQuervain's
syndrome" and refers to
inflammation of the tendon
which controls extension or
raising of the thumb.
This tendon passes through a
tight tunnel across the wrist,
and is subject to inflammation
due to constant rubbing with
activity which stresses the
wrist. Although this problem
may effect athletes such as
golfers and tennis players, it
also effects those involved in
common daily activities.
Treatment for DeQuervain's
syndrome typically begins
with oral medications, and per-
haps bracing to put the tendon
at rest. If symptoms continue,
an injection of a steroid such
as cortisone can be very benefi-
cial, and possibly curative. In
some circumstances however,
pain may continue despite
conservative treatment and
surgery will eliminate the
problem. Surgery consists of a
small incision directly over the
tendon, where the tunnel 'is
"opened up" to take away any
chance of any rubbing of the
tendon. This is an outpa-
tient procedure, and takes

about 30 minutes to perform.
The second common diagno-
sis to consider with your histo-
ry of pain is arthritis of your
hand, specifically where the
long bone on the thumb side
of your hand joins to the wrist,
known as the "first car-
pometacarpal joint."
This joint can be subject to
high load anrd stress with sim-
ple day to day activities, such
as opening a jar. Pain is felt
directly within the joint at the
wrist, and may radiate up the
thumb. X-rays will help con-
firm the diagnosis. Once a
diagnosis.is established, treat-
ment options include arthritis
medications which help reduce
pain and inflammation and
improve your function.
An injection of steroid into
the joint can be very beneficial
as well, often providing
months of relief. If these
options fail to bring about con-
siderable relief, surgery can be
The take home message for
your should be that you very
well may have a "fixable" prob-
lem. However, you can't get
better if you don't get treat-
ment, so see your physician for
further evaluation.

H ow much would you
pay for a pair of running
shoes? How does $250
sound? Pretty scary, huh?
Athletic shoe manufacturers
diia pbutiiiii up prices like never
before. Rising oil prices have, of
course, legitimately increased
the production costs of just
about everything and running
shoes that are made of nothing
but petroleum byproducts are
affected. Still, some of these
new price points are as unnec-
essary as the\' are absurd.
It is the old "see what the
market will bear" thinking run
While I was an athletic shoe
store buyer in the early 1980s, I
remember when a New Balance
salesman showed me the first
$70 running shoe. I couldn't
believe it, the established price
at the time was $29.99; the
expensive ones were $39.99. It
was impossible to control my
laughter as I exclaimed, "No
one will ever pay 70 bucks for a
pair of running shoes!"
Boy was I wrong. My crystal
ball must have really been
kaput that day. It took time but
consumers came 'round to the
$70 shoe and now look: You
can't even find a pair for that
price these days.
What's more, observe how
the mind works. If there were a
pair on the market, people
wouldn't wear it. They would
say that it was too cheap to be
any good.
Yes, the old $70 price point is
dead and gone. Survived, how-
ever, by his kid brother, the
$100 price barrier. It took an
understandably long time for
this usurper to take hold even
though a great many people
still fnd him unacceptable.
But still, there are a lot of
$100, $110 and $130 shoes out
there and people are buying
plenty of them despite the fact
that there is precious little dif-
ference between the $85 and
the $110 shoes. Well, except
Adidas has just released the
world's first $250 running
shoe. You have probablyread
about it. The shoe's selling
point is that itis a computer-
shoe. A computer chip in the
mid-sole of the shoe detects
when you have changed sur-
faces and adjusts the shoe's
"ride," its firmness or softness.
Now when you are running
down the beach you can jump
from firm waterlogged sand to
powdery loose sand and then
up to the cement of the board-
walk all without missing a
computer chip-accommodated
$250 stride. Just don't let the
salty tide swamp them or you
could be crying $250 crocodile
New Balance has had a $200

shoe out for four years or so but
nobody much bought it. I
guess it was ahead of its time.
Perhaps now that $200 is made
cheap they'll be selling them
like the proverbial hotcakes.
Nike is touting the new Air
Max 360; a shoe the company.
says is vastly superior because it
is "all air."
It may be more hot air than
anything else. Nike's marketing
boys are notorious for hyping
stuff to the airless stratosphere.
The 360 goes for a cool $165, a
new Nike record.
Market leader Asics has a
new gel model that they think
is worth $165 because it
"shows more gel." The shoe
displays the silicon jelly stuff
all over the heel. If you show
them the money, they'll show
you the gel.
Manufacturers are hoping
the unwitting consumer will
maintain his belief in the old
(erroneous) adage, "you get
what you pay for." A sucker
punch if there ever was one.
So why the big difference in
prices? All of them are com-
posed of the same ingredients:

SPlayers from the
Ponte Vedra Storm
receive medals for
their second-place
finish at Disney's
Soccer Showcase
in Orlando. The
Storm competes in
U-13 elite-level
soccer tourna-
ments throughout
the country.

Storm fares well at Disney event


The Ponte Vedra Storm U-13
girls soccer team continues to
impress fans and the other
teams, too at national
The Storm competes only in
premier, elite-level tourna-
ments, playing against teams
ranked in the Top 20 in the
nation. The Storm, which car-
ries a Top 20 ranking of its
own, has been No. 1 in Florida
three years running.
This season the Storm, under
Trey Clark, director of coach-
ing for the Ponte Vedra Soccer
Club, and his wife/assistant
coach Kathy, has gone unde-
feated in pool play in three
national events. In the cham-
pionship rounds of those tour-
naments, the Storm placed
first, second and third.

The Storm's most recent trip,
over the winter break, was to
Disney's Soccer Showcase pre-
sented by adidas in Orlando.
At that event, they finished
runner-up in the Predator
Division to the No. 3 team in
the nation, Dallas Texans Red.
The Texans Red defeated the
Storm 3-0) after the Ponte
Vedra side had gone 3-0-1 lead-
ing up to that match. The
Texas team entered the game
with a perfect record after
outscoring its first four oppo-
nents 19-1, including an 8-0
shellacking of Inter-United
Krush of Florida in its first con-
The Storm defeated DFV

pions, 3-1 in their opening

third game, they tied the

Morgan Brian and Meg
Hamby scored the goals in the
Storm's 2-0 semifinal win over
the Clearwater Chargers.
"To sav that the girls
'stepped up to the plate' is a
complete understatement,"
said Clark. "With four girls not
able to make the trip, we went
into the tournament wanting

the girls to just have fun."
Players come from as far
away as Georgia and central
Florida to pla with the Storm.
"After the first victory, we
realized that even with three
starters not playing, we could
compete against anyone in the
nation," said Clark. "From
that point on, we believed we -
were the best team in the
event and played to that

Manufacturers would have
you believe that if you pay
more you get a better shoe, a
higher-tech shoe.
Any truth in that' With the
higher-priced model you might
possibly feel a bit more shoe
beneath your feet. If so, and it
feels more comfortable, or is
more suited to your needs,
then buy it. If it doesn't, then
Some people think that if
you pay more for a shoe it will
last longer. Don't count on it.
The lifespan of all training
shoes is about the same, regard-
less of price, about 500 miles.
So if you run 20 miles a week
you can expect to be shopping
for a new pair in six or seven
The fact is you can buy about
as good a running shoe as you
are likely to find for $80 to $95.
Unless you're in the mood to
throw money away there is no
need to do so and there is not
much need to buy a Rolls
Royce of running shoes.
The important thing is to use
a shoe that is correct for your
foot structure and gait cycle,
not just to pay top dollar in the
belief that the priciest shoe is
the "best" shoe.
You need to go to a reputable
running shoe specialty store to
accomplish this. Don't be nerv-
ous, if you don't want to pay
$100 or more just tell them so
up front. You can still buy the
right shoe at the right price
