An architect who specializes in police facilities has
told Atlantic Beach officials that renovating the city's
"inadequate, unfunctional" Public Safety Building as
planned will not be enough to meet the department's
needs and that the city should construct a new facili-
ty roughly four times the size of the current one.
But the estimated $5 million price tag and a lack of
available land needed to build such a structure has
city officials at a "crossroads" of what to do.
The City Commission at a Feb. 2 strategic planning
meeting discussed the city's options for constructing a

new police facility. Options discussed included reio-
cating the attached Jacksonville Fire and Rescue
Station to make room for a new police building at the
current location, 850 Seminole Road.
But while Police Chief David Thompson at the
meeting said that moving the fire station was "feasi-
ble," the architect said the "most cost effective way"
to go would be to build a new facility on another
piece of property.
The approximately 4,900-square-foot building -
including the fire station was constructed in 1987
when the police force was much smaller and the tech-
nology of the day required less space. But the growth

of the city has created a need for more police officers,
staff and computer technology, according to city offi-
cials. The department currently has 29 sworn officers
and 13 non-sworn staff members and is looking to
add more positions. The department's dispatch room
is hot and cramped due to the addition of newer dis-
patch computer equipment, staff said.
The commission last year budgeted $475,000 to
complete the first of a two-phase renovation project
for the building.

JB to alter

Supervisor of Elections

seeks change to prep
ballots to send overseas

Jacksonville Beach officials responding to a request from
the Supernisor of Elections are working to change candidate
qualifying dates to .low more time for absentee ballots to.
reach registered voters overseas.
Dick Carlberg, ithe assistant supervisor of elections,
Monday-askd the: City Council to- consider changing its
qu ain-gg f~I~eas T-'o conform with the state statute that
requires quifying end 50 days prior to the election.
"The current qualifying starts Sept. 24 for two weeks. We
would like ,yu to consider changing it to begin at noon
Sept. 18," Carlberg said, explaining qualifying would end a
week earlier than it currently does. "That is the standard
throughout the state."
Carlberg said the current schedule penalizes overseas vot-
ers because it tightens the time available to submit the
absentee ballots.
"You have a lot of military voters living in Jacksonville
Beach precincts," he said. "We would like to be able to get
those ballots out 35 days prior to the election. The current
schedule will not allow us to do that."
Members of the armed services on active duty and the
Merchant Marine, their spouses and dependents, and
United States citizens residing outside of the United States
may apply for voter registration or request an absentee bal-
lot with a Federal Post Card Application.
Voters overseas may receive absentee ballots via faxed, e-
mail or regular mail. Absentee ballots may also be returned
by fax or mailed to the supervisor of elections so that it is
received no later than 7 p.m. on election day. Voted ballots
returned by e-mail will not be accepted.
The supervisor of elections office will e-mail the voter the
list of candidates for the primary and general election no
later than 30 days before each election.
Mayor Fland Sharp said the city clerk's office is drafting an
ordinance to amend the candidate qualifying dates that will
be presented to the City Council in coming weeks.
"We'll take care of it," he said.

Third grade students from
Jill Grens' English class at
Atlantic Beach Elementary

"Perky Penguin" perform-
ance. The children wrote
original songs and stories,
all about penguins. Before

JB's defense of

35' height limit

is questioned

Demolition crews are bringing down the former Poncho &
Charlies Tex Mex Cantina and Breakwater apartment com-
plex Monday to make way for the mixed use development
Ocean Pointe at the comer of Beach Boulevard and A1A. A
former Texaco service station site on the southeastern cor-
ner of the intersection will also be included in the redevel-
opment. Ocean Pointe will feature garage parking and
75,000-square feet of commercial office space.

Members of a community watch
group who put in motion a height
restriction limiting new construc-
tion to 35 feet in Jacksonville
Beach are concerned the city is not
fulfilling its pledge to defend the
height cap after losing two vested
rights suits.
Ben Rubin, a member of the
Beaches Watch, Monday expressed
concerns that city officials were
not being forthcoming with infor-
mation relating to the 15 vested
rights suits and Bert Harris claims
filed against the city in response to
the height cap.
"Did the city hire outside coun-
sel? Did the city file a response to

the suits?" Rubin asked. "Can the
city be open and tell us what hap-
pened in these cases? If you don't
know, do you want the citizens to
assume the legal strategy was to
roll over and play dead? The city
goal is to maximize the tax rolls or
maybe this is a method to change
what happened at the elections?"
Two circuit court judges recently
ruled in favor of developers Lee
Underwood and Scott Gay after
considering the time invested in
their development plans when the
height restriction was implement-
ed in November, 2004.
Last October, Circuit Court
Judge Jean Johnson ruled in favor
of developer Underwood who

The Cherry Street bump will be replaced by a hump.

Humps to replace bumps
The Neptune Beach City Council Monday approved
replacing speed "bumps" along some neighborhood
streets with speed "humps."
The streets are: Cherry Street in the 200 block, Camellia
Terrace Drive, Hagler Drive, South Street in the 400 block,
Cedar Street at Hagler Drive, Golden Rod and Oleander in
the 200 block.
City officials say speed "bumps" are no longer accept-
able and that speed "humps" -which offer a more grad-
ual incline are now favored as a traffic calming device.
The officials have said that speed "bumps" can result in
lawsuits against the city because of the damage the
devices cause while slowing vehicles.
The council is in the process of drafting a speed
"hump" policy but in the meantime wanted to remove
the city's "liability" with existing speed "bumps."

7 Girl Scouts

get top award

for their civic

Seven Girl Scouts from the
Beaches area have earned the
Gold Award, which is the high-
est award in Girl Scouting.
It recognizes 14- to 17-year-
old Girl Scout's interests and
their leadership skills, career
explorations, self-improvement,
and service.
Winners of the award include:
Kelley Erickson updated the
learning centers at the
Children's Home Society, a fos-
ter house for children waiting
for permanent placement in
"The kids were really excited
to see the rooms come togeth-
er," said Erickson. "This experi-
ence makes me appreciate my
family and the support that I
have received,"
*Andrea Herbin organized a
"Proi for Every Girl" campaign
dedicated to the PACE Center
for Girls in Jacksonville for
young women who could not
afford formal dresses and acces-
sories to wear to their prom.-.
"The staff was grateful to receive
the dresses," said Herbin. "In
order to be successful each prom
season the center needs to col-
lect 80 gowns and I was able to
give them 87 complete outfits."
*Ann Hunter organized a
"Night on the Town" dinner for
residents of the I.M. Sulzbacher
Center homeless shelter. "I
wanted to help build a sense of
community and hope within
the residents," said Hunter.
Brittany Rudolph hosted a
mother/daughter fashion show
to benefit the Neptune Baptist
Church's new mothers outreach
program. "I am excited to know
that my project made a differ-
ence in the lives of women who
previously could not financially
provide for their newborn," said
Rudolph. "It makes me feel
good to help those who could
not previously help them-
Danielle, Von Stein organ-
ized the I.M. Sulzbacher
Children's Library. "This center
gives children who don't have
the ability to go to the public
library the opportunity to con-
tinue to.foster and develop a
thirst for books and knowledge,"'
said Von Stein.
Kimberly Wenger restored
the public beach at Clear Lake.
"Many people don't live where
they can regularly appreciate the
beauty around them," said
Wenger. "I want the Clear Lake
residents to appreciate the beau-
ty and take pride in their city."
S Michelle Morris built recy-
cling containers at a local base-
ball field. "People are using the
recycling bins to discard their
trash, so I would say the project
is a success so far," said Morris.
"I hope people continue to take
care of the field so everyone can
use the area for years to come."

Height:City urged to defend limits

Cont. from A-I
sought to' build a seven-story
oceanfront condominium at
807 First Street North.
SJohnson looked at
Underwood's intentions for the
property when is was purchased
and what zoning and land regu-
lations were in effect at that
Underwood also planned to
develop a similar project on a
vacant lot across the street from
the restaurant at 808 1st St. N
but Johnson denied vesting for V
that parcel because there were
no formal development plans in
place for that site.
Vested rights is a legal term
prohibiting the government
from applying new laws that
would have a direct effect on
existing developments, projects
in the permitting process or
property with an intended use
at the time the law was adopted.
Circuit Court Judge Charles
W. Arnold Jan. 9 ruled that Gay
may also proceed with his devel-
opment plans which were under.
way when the citizen-led height'
referendum went into effect
Nov. 2.
The city's Plinning and
Development Department on
that day approved a develop-
ment plan application submit-
ted in September, 2003 for a
project in excess of 35 feet at
1034 First Street North.
In his final summary judg-
ment, Arnold notes that Gay
assembled four parcels on the
west side of First Street North for
the purposes of developing the
high rise condominium project
Ten North but could not obtain
the: necessary permitting to
move forward.
Rubin questioned whether
the judges had knowledge of the
numerous changes to the city's
height limits prior to the 35-foot

restriction. He also expressed
concerns about the city's plan-
ning ,department and whether
developers were told they-need-
ed to obtain a building permit to
proceed with plans if the height
cap was passed.
ask that the city staff and
city council become more open,
or transparent on this issue that
so many citizens feel so strongly
about," Rubin said.
"This is not a vote anymore.
As part of the Charter aid Land,
Development Code, this is now
the law of the land. There
should be no opinions or
options. This is the time to vig-
orously uphold these laws."
Rubin said the city guaian-
teed its support of the height
restriction when the City
Council in December, 2004
approved a resolution directing
City Attorney Stephen Stratford
to appeal any court decision
that declares the height linit
But Rubin's contentions are
contrary to the charter amend-
ment because the vested rights
suit do not challenge the height
restriction,' according to
Mayor Fland Sharp, who pre-

ing discussed possible locations
to move the fire station such as
next to the Neptune Beach
Police Department or some-
where along Mayport Road to
create more room. That fire sta-

Neptune Beach.
But City Manager Jim
Hanson warned that moving
the fire station too far from the

increase response times to fires.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed ways to get more prop-

Mike Borno said, meaning that
the city could force the sale of
private land,or annex an adja-

Hanson said the most diffi-
cult issue to resolve may be
finding funding for the project,
which he said could only be
financed through a general
bond issue.
Hanson is recommending
that the city take a "more
practical approach" by amend-
ing the renovation plans to
incorporate some of the archi-

The Leader's Opinion

Public input needed

on moving AB police'

The relocation of public safety facilities in Atlantic
Beach from their present location on Seminole Road
was broached during a recent strategic planning ses-
The move is being suggested to allow more room to
expand the police station. An architect has reportedly
advised the city that it would be wasting its money to
do a modest expansion that has been planned.
The fire station is manned by Jacksonville hrefight-
ers and crews respond to calls in both Neptune Beach
and Atlantic Beach. It has been suggested the station
could be moved closer to Neptune Beach.
Another suggestion is that the police station, next
to the current fire station at the 5-way stop at
Seminole Road, could be moved.
Certainly, whether either or both public safety facil-
ities should be moved requires additional study.
In addition, substantive discussion must take place
in the community.
Additional input should be solicited before any
decisions or expenditures are committed. If more
space is required, those footing the bill must be cer-
tain the cost is really justified and that the result
serves the public's best interests.

Deputies must be able to locate

Roscoe addresses more quickly

To the editor:
Nly mother lives on the
Intracoastal on Roscoe
Boulevard in Ponte \edra
Beach. Today. she witnessed sev-
eral young boys shooting rifles
and other types of guns off of
their dock into the water, across
the water into the woods, and
over her property which is the
second house from their house.
She called the police to report
the boys shooting the guns to
see if this was legal in a neigh-
borhood and also while boats
are going by. The police said
they would send someone out
to check it out.
She saw the police go by her
@iMsf, 4p.weRV tv4Flity rinpb
l9v -,,,o\n.o ,TLr. .eftorq,,, ,she.
assumed they did not have the
right address and passed the
correct one. The correct address
was 194N Roscoe Boulevard.
She assumed they might have
kept going to 194S Roscoe
Boulevard. This would not be
the first time the police did not
get the addresses correct (anoth-
er story I will explain below. A
few minutes later, my mother
saw the boys giving each other
high fives on the dock. Then
she saw them pull-a 5 foot egret
out of the water that they shot
and killed. They started holding
the bird up and taking pictures
of each other holding it. My
mother then lost it and went
over to their property to
demand they give her the dead
bird so she would have the evi-

dence of the shot egret. They
refused to hand her the bird.
She also asked them to go inside
and get their parents. They all
went inside and she stood there
for a long time waiting.
Eventually, one of the boys
came back out because they
realized they left all of the guns
on the dock. She asked again
where the parents were and he
said they were not there. All of
the boys got in their cars and
left the property, taking the bird
in the dead bird in the car with
them. My mother went back
inside and called the police
again to tell them if they had
gone to the right address, they
GQuoI,.hAye prevented the bird,
ftmn being unnecessarily ,killed.
The police sent someone to her
house to get her statement and
said that they would.go over to
the right address, however, now
all of the boys had left the prop-
The other story I was referring
to about the police not having
the correct address is the other
situation happened over
approximately a six month peri-
od. My mom would be woken
up in the middle of the night,
on three different dates, by the
police knocking on her door at
191 North Roscoe. They asked
her to step outside in her paja-
mas because they claimed
someone called 911 from this
address. The first time it hap-
pened she was confused and
startled. The second and third

time it made her angry and she
tried to explain to the police,
"Hey instead of wasting time
here you guys need to go down
to 191 South to see if that is
who called. They might really
need you." My mom was really
concerned about this situation
thinking that there is.someone
out there calling 911 and the
police may not be responding
because they have the wrong

most of the other residents on
Roscoe Boulevard) are: .

to understand that there is a

2- Everyone my mother

received a different response.
Is it going to take a person

someone shooting off of their
dock for someone to figure out
if this should be allowed in a
residential neighborhood?
Also, if someone does need 911
assistance, will the police know
which address they should.

Take a ride to see many

helped by religion here

To the editor,
Thank you for printing Mr.
Wilson's letter in the Feb 1
Beaches Leader. In our great
country, he has every right to
be heard. He warns us that
churchgoers and religious
groups waste exorbitant time
and talent that could be better
used servingg crillization." He
does not say how he "serves
civilization," but, giving him
the benefit of the doubt, I am
sure he does. In this world of
strife and grief, we have an
opportunity to be chiil with
each other, even when we dis-
I disagree with Mr.
Wilson for these reasons.
Many people (Christian,
Jewish, Muslim, Atheists and
others) enjoy grouping togeth-
er to help others. My group of
"churchgoers" consists of
about 24 volunteers in the St

Vincent de Paul Society
(Beaches). We visit and assist,
annually, about 700 poor
Beaches families about
$6,000-$15,000 income)-
without regard to religion, race
or nationality. For 12 years, we
have provided love, rent/utili-
ty assistance, furniture and
guidance regarding other agen-
cies. With the kind and gener-
ous donations from the won-
derful people of the Beaches,
we provide (annually) a quar-
ter of a million dollars in goods
and services to Beaches fami-
lies-at an overhead of 5-79%.
Coming from a large family,
and, with my wife, raising a
large family-and serving in
our great Army for 40 years
(starting as a private)-- have
heard all Mr. Wilson's points. I
am also aware that when our
Chaplain (priest) in the 1st
Infantry Division in Vietnam

in 1966 was killed in action, he
was not forcing religion on sol-
diers, but rather he was carry-
ing our precious wounded to a
helicopter. Similarly, just
before they died, the "Eour
Chaplains" (Protestant,
Catholic and Jewish) on board
the USS Dorchester in WW II
were not forcing religion on
the sailors-they were giving
their four life vests to the
If Mr. Wilson wants church-
es to pay taxes, he has the free-
dom to lobby Congress to
change the laws. If he wishes
to see what "church groups,"
do, I invite him to "ride with
us" and see the faces of men,
women and children whom we
help. Possibly, he can help us
and we can help him.

True love

Sis costly

r. r

t was a landmark, my 10th
anniversary in December to
my current and final wife,
Dianne. This February 14th I
really want to do something
unique and special. No ordi-
nary flowers, candy and dinner
for this year. After researching
the World Wide Web, I have
narrowed it down to seven
Valentine choices!
Where do I start? Maybe I will
get my wife the "Adopt a Vine
Ultimate Gift for Wine Lovers!"
You have to be a millionaire to
own a vineyard, but for only
$68 1 can purchase my better
half a "complete vine!" She gets
her name on a plate (hopefully
made of light weight material)
attached to the vine. We get
two glasses of wine if we ever
visit her vine, in England!
How about this Cupid spe-
cial? $52 gets a "Chocolate
Fountain" to present to. my
Valentine. Load it with Belgian
Chocolate and turn it on.
Seconds later you get a moun-
tain of warm melted heaven on
earth ready for dipping. The
skinny girl in the ad is pushing
giant strawberries into the lus-
dous brown lava. The slender
model reminds us that it is all

"Wonka-Esque!" Sorry Charley!
Another unique choice is to
name a rose after your sweet-
h eat. -jkra m e $3' y',pt ,
ha;e a4qame atta6E to4bea^g,
tiful rose, I can see buying a
dozen Michelles or Amandas,
but a rose named Butch or Peter
would not smell so sweet. I
think Shakespeare would agree.
SBut wait, I can have a star
named after my wife. You also
get a sky chart to see where your
heavenly body is. This is one I
am not going to recommend to
my cousin Fred over in the
Panhandle. I can hear him now,
"Y'all look up there, that's Mars
and over there is Venus. Oh,
and there is Saturn and just to
the left is Fannie Jean!" Keep
moving on Captain Kirk! That
star is where no man ever wants
to be!
A man can get his special
Valentine something on a budg-
et. A mere $17 gets a personal-
ized chocolate card sent to her.
Of course after she says "Awww"
when she reads the mushy
inscription, them she can say
"Mmmm" as she eats your
The most economical item I
found was the exclusive "Heart
Shaped Frying Pan" for only
$8.81. The ad shows an egg
over easy being prepared. As
cute and inexpensive as it looks,
this is the kind of present that
my Mama used to call "the gift
of work!" The way to her heart
is not spending more time in
the kitchen.
The web site I discovered my
final choice on, must have
worked a deal out with that
great American Astronaut, Neil
Armstrong. Although I really
doubt that the first man to walk
on the moon, gave these folks
permission to sell'it off. The
price isn't bad however, only
$35 for a Lunar acre. My wife's
name would appear on the deed
for a section of "Eternal

all the stuff for her. She's worth
it. It'll be our seven days of
Valentines, starting with that
grape vine adoption and the
mini chocolate factory. She'll
have a star and a rosenamed
Dianne with two Ns and when
the frying pan gets here, I'll
cook up the heart shaped eggs.
Wait a minute, what is this
about allowing four to six weeks
delivery? This is an outrage! Oh
well, like they say in College
Football, wait till next year!
Now what did I do with that
florist's number? Wonder if the
Wal-Greens still has a good
selection of candy. Hey they
might even have them on sale
by now. Plus I have to make
dinner reservations. Yep, this
Valentine's is going to be unique
and special!

More letters to the editor:

Lifeguards are well

trained not to bother

beachgoers except to

protect public safety

To the editor:
This is in response to an
opinion writer Feb 3
about:"Lifeguards on beach go
overboard." He requested that
anyone with insight, please
respond. I've been an ocean res-
cue lifeguard for over 20 years,
so here;s my answer.
When I first lifeguarded here
in Duval County, right after HS,
The American Red Cross
Volunteer Lifesavings Corps at
Jacksonville Beach, trained and
guarded all of Duval County's
beaches, except Neptune. Now,
each city pays and operates
their own ocean rescue life-
guards; the Navy pays and
maintains their own guards on
the Navy Base, the City of
Jacksonville has Huguenot and
Hanna Park, Atlantic Beach,-
Neptune, and Jacksonville
Beach all train their own life-
guards. So there may be some
different training for
"rookies/recruits/new life-
guards. 'Only, a new or rookie
lifeguard would be" blowing his
whistle and flapping his arms
like a seagull on speed, trying
to get the attention of a swim-
Since I work at Atlantic and
Jacksonville beaches, I can only
cite and explain our procedures
and training of our lifeguards.
At Jacksonville and Atlantic
Beach we train all our guards to
watch all bathers closely and
especially the young/small peo-
ple that may get in trouble in.
the dangerous ocean currents.
When we see a swimmer that is
swimming freestyle and in no
trouble, we don't bother them.
Occasionally, a new rookie life-
giiard.'"ma'y get- worifeid -Iff-6
sw, nrmi' be I-' ou1 -twl
because most ocean swimmers
stay close to shore. Most life-
guard chairs on the beach have
radios and an experienced
guard will radio to a rookie if he
hears or sees a lifeguard acting
"strangely". A simple "what are
you blowing at? is all.we ask in
this situation. The experienced
lifeguard or an officer will then
instruct the rookie what to do
or not do. If the lifeguard has a
true emergency, all you hear is
a short whistle, then you will
see a flag drop, and the life-
guard will be off his/her chair
and go make the'rescue. "When'
in doubt, GO!" is our motto.
1 strongly agree with the
writer that "Mother Nature will
be the only one to decide
where or how long I swim."
All of Duval County is open
beach and you may swim
whenever/where ever you want
and no lifeguard will prevent
you from entering the water.
All our lifeguards are trained to
protect all swimmers and
beachgoers from any hazards in
the ocean or on the beach.
As to all those new
beach/ocean warning flags,
that's what they are designed to
do, warn you of hazardous
ocean conditions. Green is
calm conditions, Yellow is
moderate ocean hazards/cur-
rents, Red is dangerous ocean
conditions, Purple is dangerous
Marine life in the water, Double
red flags is, yes as the writer
says "The Water is Closed." The
actual warning states: "Water
Closed to Public." More
detailed explanations of the.
flag warning system is placed at
the beach access, about every'5
blocks. If you have any ques-
tions about the ocean condi-
tions just ask the lifeguard.
Since the lifeguards are their'
only ones that post the warn-
ing flag, the absent of any
warning flags doesn't mean the
ocean is safe but means there is
no lifeguards on duty. Again
this is only a warning and only
the Ocean Rescue Captain or
the city official in charge of
beach safety will have permis-
sion to fly the close water warn-
ing flags. If you still go in the
water when these flags are fly-
ing, we will come to where you
are, usually in our trucks, and
warn you about the dangerous
ocean. The only time I've seen
the ocean/beach actually closed
and strictly enforced as closed
is when the hurricane was near
us about 8 / 9 years ago. The
only other reason to warn you
to get out of the water or to
come in, when you are obvi-
ously a good swimmer, is when

we see sharks in the ocean.
[ agree 100 percent that the
ocean should be respected, not
We will be training new
ocean rescue lifeguards in
February at Jacksonville Beach
and March at Atlantic Beach
and I guarantee that if I see any
of our rookies acting like the
lifeguards you describe they
will ne out of the chair in. an
instant. If you see or think any'
of our lifeguards are not acting
professionally or have any
complaints about them, please
tell the officer or Captain of the
Ocean rescue beach who are
usually riding in the truck or at
their lifeguard station.

Atlantic Beach could elect 4 commissioners

from district and mayor could run citywide

To the editor:
It is no surprise that some members of
the Atlantic Beach Commission want to
maintain the status quo regarding the
present at-laige electoral system as evi-
denced in the Feb. 3 LeaderTstory by Jeffrey
Commissioner Mike Borno wants to
postpone a Nov. 2006 referendum on sin-
gle-member districts because he believes
that voters would be overwhelmed with
two referenda on the ballot at the same
time ithe other referendum being about
building height limits).
This position represents progress on Mr.
Borno's part since the last time the issue
came up he was opposed to any change.
And, it is worth remembering that Mr.
Borno told the audience at the fall 2005
candidate debate that he wants more par-
ticipation in local government, which will
be the case if voices from the west side are
actually at the table and voting.
Commissioner Sylvia Simmons also
favors the status quo because of her con-
cerns that the quality of candidates might
suffer with district representation and
because city staff already have a full plate
researching a height-limits referendum.

I have been a proponent of electoral fair-
ness for some years; I don't envision that
elected officials will be better with single-
member representation, only that they
won't be any worse than what we endured
during the Meserve decade when
Commissioners had two constituencies,
the voters on the east side of town and the
Big Navy lobby.
I don't believe city staff need be
involved in researching the electoral sys-
tem except for city, attorney Alan Jensen.
There exists a pool of educated people in
Atlantic Beach, including numerous teach-
ers and lawyers, who can craft a proposal
for the voters to vote on in November.
Mayor Don Wolfson, who deserves cred-
it for campaigning this fall for electoral
reform, appears to be hedging his bets by
proffering a mix of seven district and at-
large representatives.
Unfortunately, Mr. Wolfsoh's complex
model would continue to dilute the vote
of west Atlantic Beach citizens; for exam-
ple, Mr. Wolfson's mix could produce a
Commission comprised of four officehold-
ers residing in Oceanwalk and a single
officeholder residing in Marsh Oaks or the
Dutton Park area.

Only Commissioner Dezmond Waters
appears to understand how alienating the
present system is 'for voters on the west
side and how previous Commissions have
turned a blind eye to needs on the west
At-large representation violates some of
the most basic principles of American gov-
ernment and history, including "no taxa-
tion without representation" and "one
person, one vote." In practice, the present
system in AB is tilted in favor of well-off
white elites who live on the east side of
town and it dilutes the vote of the racially
and ethnically diverse people of modest
means who live on the west side of town.
My proposal is a simple one: four district
seats, following the lines of the present
voting precincts until the 2010 Census,
and a mayor elected at-large who will rep-
resent the interests of the community "as
a 'whole," which the present at-large sys-
tem clearly does not.
How we get to this structure can be dis-
cussed, but anything less is undemocratic.

Associations receive notifica-

from the earliest stages of dis-

learned that Jacksonville has

adopted a Neighborhood Bill
of Rights, resulting in
improved communications
between the public, the city,
and developers. Simply put, it
is a bill that empowers the pub-
lic to be on a level playing field
with developers.
The Coalition Board of

Crane earned badge

0o courage in ..111 897

Civil War novelist survived Florida shipwreck

"The correspondent, pulling
at the other oar, watched the
waves and wondered whiy he
was there." Stephen Crane,
from his 1897 short story "The
Open Boat."

Stephen Crane's classic
Civil War novel, "The'Red
Badge of Courage," is
required reading for many
10th-grade English students.
Crane was only 24 when
he penned the famous anti-
war novel in 1895. He died
of tuberculosis five years
later, destitute and unsure of
his place in modern litera-
But his work has endured,
evidenced by the fact that
"The Red Badge of Courage"
has never gone out of print.
Although known primarily
for the war novel, Crane was
also a poet, a newspaper
reporter, a war correspondent
and the author of "the finest
short stories in literature,"
according to one of his biog-
The best of those short sto-
ries, "The Open Boat,"
should be required reading
for area students because of
its relevance to Jacksonville

Wreck of Commodore

Crane survived the sinking
of the Jacksonville-based
steamer tug SS Commodore
on New Year's Day, 1897.
Stranded in a 10-foot
dinghy with three other men
for 27 hours in the Atlantic
Ocean, Crane assisted in row-
ing the tiny boat to shore,
earning the respect of the
ship's captain.
The frightening experi-
ence, however, would haunt
the tritrepid author to his
dying day.
"My husband's brain is
never at rest. He lives over
everything and talks aloud
constantly," said the author's
common-law wife, Cora
Taylor of Jacksonville, in a
letter before Crane's death
on June 5, 1900:
"It is awful to hear him try
to change places in the'open
boat!' "

Stephen Crane in 1899, a
year before his death.

'The southern Newport'

Crane arrived in
Jacksonville in mid-
November 1896, checking
into the block-long St. James
Hotel under an assumed
The deception was a com-
mon practice among
reporters who hoped to earn
passage to Cuba on "fili-
buster" ships out of
The seaport was billed as
"the southern Newport" and
"the American Nice," draw-
ing 65,000 tourists a year.
Hired by a New York news-
paper syndicate to cover the
Cuban uprising against
Spain, it took Crane a month -
to secure a berth aboard the
coal-burning tugboat SS
The 122-foot vessel was
considered the fastest of the
three Jacksonville "filibuster"
steamers that smuggled arms
and ammunition to Cuba.
The Commodore's Dec. 31,
1896, gun-running expedi-

Waves the hue of slate

Crane wrote two accounts
of the Commodore experi-
The first, a detailed, 1,000-
word newspaper article about
the shipwreck, appeared in
print on Jan. 7, 1897.
A 9,000-word, fictionalized
version of his ordeal, "The
Open Boat," was published
in June 1897 by Scribner's
Crane penned both
accounts from his
Jacksonville hotel room at
the St. James and from Cora's
boarding house in
Jacksonville's LaVilla district.
"Cheers greeted the old
Commodore from passing
ship and from the shore,"
wrote Crane in the national-
ly syndicated newspaper
"At Mayport, we changed
our river pilot for a man who
could take her to open sea."
The Commodore ran
aground twice on its way
down the St. Johns. River,
apparently rupturing its hull.
The 178-ton steamer took
on water around midnight.
By 3 a.m., Jan. 1, 1897, the
ship had to be abandoned in
high seas off the coast of
Daytona Beach.
In his newspaper account,
Crane described the insuffer-
able heat and steam in the
flooded engine room as "a
scene taken from the middle -
kitchen of hades."
The writer, the ship's cap-
tain, the oiler and a steward
piled into a small dinghy .

and watched the tug sink at
sunrise, taking seven men to
their deaths.
"Four men, I remember,
clambered over the railing
and stood there watching the
cold, steely sheen of the-
sweeping waves," Crane
reported in the newspaper
The survivors in the
dinghy rode towering waves
"the hue of slate," wrote
Crane in the opening para-
graphs of "The Open Boat."
"Each froth-top was a
problem in small boat navi-
gation. The correspondent,
pulling at the other oar,
watched the waves and won-
dered why he was there."

Brotherhood of men

On Sunday, Jan. 3, 1897,
after two nights at sea the
men made a desperate dash
for shore near Daytona
Only three survived the
treacherous swim. The oiler,
Billy Higgins, died after
being struck on the head by
the overturned dinghy.
Crane said he witnessed
"the subtle brotherhood of
men" during the near-death
experience, lamenting the
loss of the oiler who spelled
him at the oars.
In the wave-tossed and
wind-whipped dory boat,
partially filled with bone-
chilling sea water, Crane
wrote that the only form of
warmth and comfort -
each man felt was when he
was behind the oar, breaking
a sweat.
"The plan was for one to
row until the other lost the
ability and then arouse the
other from his sea-water
couch in the bottom of the
boat," writes Crane in "The
Open Boat."
"And there was this com-
radeship that the correspon-
dent, who had been taught
to be cynical of men, knew
even at the time was the best'
experience of his life."

believes "The Open Boat,"

Badge of Courage," is'Crane's
masterpiece, proclaiming the'

the Castellani Art Museurt in

of their friends as well.
They said part of the fun of
an event is planning the
menu. And they take their
time and enjoy the process.
It's not unusual for them to
spend a week or so discussing
and planning a menu. Then,
depending on what they are
serving, they decide who will
handle what cooking duties..
Shortly after moving to
Ponte Vedra, the couple
began hosting annual pig
roasts, which have grown to a
block party during football
season. Last year, they moved
the date to celebrate
Jacksonville's Super Bowl.
Close to 200 people attend
the pig roasts. The event also
includes a blue ribbon com-
petition for the best side
For the pig roast, they
order a 100-pound pig from a
meat distributor in
Jacksonville and Thorn bor-
rows a "super cooker' from a"
local bank.
Cooking the pig is a whole
da\y affair but the end result
is delicious moist and tender
meat. Wilkinson usually
begins the prep work at about
5 a.m. and the pig is finished
cooking about nine hours
He cautions that once the
pig has begun cooking it is
absolutely necessary to leave
. the lidcp.thckeooker closed
so that none of the heat
escapes. After the cooking
time is complete, the meat is
taken off the bones and I
shredded for serving with a,.
variety of barbecue sauces.
For the pig and other
grilled foods, Wilkinson
prefers to use charcoal.

"It's easier to control the
temperature with a gas grill,
but the taste is just not the
same," he said.
Grilled fresh seafood is one
of his specialties and Grilled
Shrimp Appetizer is a favorite
recipe for jumbo Mayport
The dish is similar to one
the couple enjoyed on trip to
South Africa where they
found that grilling is a com-
mon preparation for many
foods. In this dish, the
shrimp has a smoky flavor
from grilling and then a
touch of sweetness is added
with the apricot sauce

Wilkinson prefers a simple
grilled preparation for fresh
grouper, mahi, or wahoo.
His recipe was inspired by
fish prepared at Captain
Anderson's restaurant in
Panama City, he said.
After the fish has finished
grilling, Wilkinson sprinkles
the filets with salt and pep-
per. He then drizzles lemon
juice, melted butter and olive
oil over the filets and finishes
with a sprinkle of fresh pars-
ley and green onions.
Wilkinson considers
Oysters Rockefeller to be one
of his most popular dishes.
Friends like them so much,
they sometimes ask him to
make a tray of the oysters for
them to serve at parties, he
The recipe for Oysters
Rockefeller came from his
Aunt Gloria and Uncle
Charlie Norwood.
Wilkinson's uncle is a con-
gressman from Augusta, Ga.,
and the recipe was included
in a congressional cookbook.
Wilkinson said that the
secret to his success with this
appetizer is using small oys-
ters and cutting them in half
or smaller. He finds that peo-
ple enjoy the dish more if the
taste of the oyster does not
dominate the other ingredi-

may be done ahead and
Using cookie sheets, cover
with crumpled aluminum
foil. Place baking shells on
foil. The crumpled foil holds
the shells in place and makes
clean-up easier. Place one
oyster in each shell. Top with
a spoon of spinach mixture, 3
drops of Tabasco or any hot
sauce, crumbled bacon, and
then dust with Parmesan
cheese. Place in the middle of
the oven and broil for 8 to 10
minutes until bubbly. Serve
about three as an appetizer.
This can be made into a

delicious as a vegetable.
Directions for cooking
a 100 lb. pig
1 approximately 100 lb.
pig, USDA grade dressed and
2 20 Ib. bags of charcoal
1-2 pkgs. hickory chips
1 large red apple
Use a super cooker grill
that is large enough for a 100
lb. pig to lie down flat. The
night before cooking the pig,
allow the pig to thaw. The
morning of the BBQ lay the
pig on its back, and using a
hatchet split the backbone
from the shoulders to the
hams. This will allow the pig
to lay flat on top of the grill.
Lay the pig on the grill on
the grass in the yard, and
using a hose wash the pig
thoroughly with water. Place
the charcoal in the grill and
burn it down until the tops
of the coals begin to turn
white. Spread the coals 80
percent under the hams and
shoulders and 20 percent
under the middle portion of
the pig. Put hickory chips on
the sides of the coals.
Place pig stomach side
down on the grill top. Cover
the ears, feet and nose with
heavy duty aluminum foil.
Close the grill lid and do not
open until 6 hours have
passed. After 6 hours, open
the lid and allow 1 hour to
cool. Insert the apple into the
pig's mouth and remove the
skin arid the meat is ready for
chopping and serving.
Note: [f a pig over 100 Ibs.
is used, more charcoal will be
needed to cook thoroughly.

Senators battle in District wrestling
ato aft


It was a tough day on the mat Saturday for
Senators wrestlers in the District 1-3A cham-
pionships at Sandalwood High School.
Fletcher finished last among seven teams
with a total of 48 points.
The Senators had'only one individual
champion, Cameron Butts at 119 pounds,
and one other wrestler, 140-pound Nick
Dalcero, reach the finals.
Butts, a freshman, earned a 14-6 majority
decision over Niceville's Mike Stretch in the
119-pound championship match.
Dalcero was pinned in 2:38 by Niceville's
Eric Plumb in the 140-pound championship.
Niceville won the district event with 189

points, followed by Mandarin with 169,
Sandalwood with 109, Bartram Trail 105,
Orange Park 97, Gainesville Buchholz 63
and Fletcher's 48 points.
In the Consolation Finals Saturday,
Fletcher's Abraham Kassees dropped an 8-1
decision in the 135-pound match.
It was a rebuilding year for Fletcher
wrestling, with a number of underclassmen
gaining experience and working on both
strength and endurance throughout the sea-
The team missed the presence of senior
Myles LoCoco, last year's 189-pound cham-
pion. Following the football season, LoCoco
began training with the wrestling team but
switched to soccer soon after.

Nease girls soccer returns to Final Four

Reigning champs will defend

state title in Fort Lauderdale

The Nease girls soccer team
knows the way to Lockhart
Stadium, having won last year's
4A state championship in the
Fort Lauderdale facility.
The Panthers punched their
ticket for a return trip with a 2-
1 victory over St. Augustine last
Friday night in a rain-soaked
regional final.
Two goals by sophomore out-
side mid Casey Eckstein, replac-
ing the injured Lauren Crossan,
put Nease on the road to
another Final Four berth.
"I never thought I'd look for-
ward to a five-hour bus ride,
but I'm looking forward to
that, relaxing for a change,"
said Nease coach Dave
Silverberg, under whom the
Panthers have won the 2002
and 2005 state titles.
The 25-2-2 Panthers meet 20-
4-3 Pensacola Washington
Friday in a state semifinal that
starts at 5 p.m. The 2006 state
championship match will be

played Saturday.
"It was probably one of the
most exciting nights of my life,
just because I've never played
in this important a game
before," said Eckstein, whose
first goal came at 17:51 of the
first half when the ball popped
out of St. Augustine goalkeeper
Desiree Sloat's hands.
"We've been working on my
following up and pressuring at
practice," said Eckstein. "That's
what I did. Just came through. I
charged the defender and it
bobbled out. The keeper hit it
and I just followed it."
Eckstein's goal tied the game
after Jackets attacker Laura Ray
headed a corer kick into the
back of the net at 36:35 of the
opening period. Alessa Smolek
took the corner kick for St.
Augustine, and the goal ended
a string of five consecutive
Panthers shutout victories.
Nease goalkeeper Catherine
O'Donnell said she couldn't say
for print what her thoughts
were after the goal was scored.
But explained what happened.
"It was a cross. They got it on

a set piece," said O'Donnell.
"Somehow Laura was open. It
was a header, upper 90 [quad-
rant of the net]. Almost impos-
sible to save."
Eckstein scored her winning
goal at 33:25 of the second half,
after which Nease faced
increased Yellow Jacket pres-
sure in addition to heavier rain
and the ever-looming threat of
O'Donnell was especially
happy to see Eckstein's tying
"She stepped it up tonight
for Lauren Crossan," said
O'Donnell, referring to an
ankle injury Crossan suffered
in Nease's semifinal victory last
week over Orlando's Bishop
Moore. "We knew someone
was going to step up, we just
didn't know who. Casey hap-
pened to be the person to help
us out."
The reality of going to the
Final Four again appeals to the
Panthers and their coach.
"When you win, I'm happy
the game was like this, because
they made us earn it," said
Silverberg "It showed how bad
our girls wanted it, because
they didn't give it to us. They
scored early, and we kept com-
ing at them. We were relent-

"I'm excited," O'Donnellsaid
of her first trip to a Final Four.
"Just want to see what it feels
like to play in the Final Four
and play, hopefully, for a state
"I'm really excited," said the
coach's daughter and senior
midfielder, Jamie Silverberg, of
her return trip to Fort
Lauderdale. "This was a really
tough game. St. Augustine took
it to us. They made it a chal-
lenge for us. We just fought to
the end. It could have been
anyone's game, but it was ours.
I think we're all excited to go to
the next step and be back there
"This year's a different
team," she said. "We don't
have one or two [key] players.
Everyone's in it together.
Everyone has a role, and all 11
players on the field give it
everything they have.
"I think it's a great accom-
plishment getting there. We
hope to do it again," said
"I'm really excited," Eckstein
said about her first trip. "Last
year I got to be with varsity,
but I wasn't on the team [that
went to the Final Four]. So it's
really exciting to actually be on
the team this year, and maybe
be a part of the win."

Old pros manage some pretty nice catches

F fishing conditions weren't
the best last week but a
few of the old pros man-
aged some pretty nice catches.
Captain George Strate had a
full 40-man crew as hl left the
dock Wednesday morning and
everybody had fish when they
returned in the afternoon.
Snapper, including 14 genuine
and mangrove, a 35-pound
cobia and a 45-pound amber-
jack with everyone limiting
out on two- to three-pound
Matt Hamilton had three'
mangroves to 11 pounds in his
cooler along with his limit of
two- to three-pound beeliners.
Jonathan Moran weighed in a
45-pound amberjack and lots
of fat beeliners.
Scott Stevens made it to the
M.R. bottom on Thursday


morning and it didn't take
him long to box three grey
grouper, a pair of snapper and
two mangrove snapper.
Larry "Fishman" Finch spent
most every morning with
friends along the rocks near

the Carrier Basin. Larry and
Bobbie Gomer put their fid-
dlers down in about 20 feet of
water and easily caught their
limit of sheepshead. On
another trip, Larry and George
Atelevich fished the same gen-
eral area and caught their limit
of 30 sheepshead.
Last Wednesday, John
Dyrssen and Dwight Hibbard
had to work hard in their creek
to pick up five redbass and a
flounder using live, shrimp
under a float.
Capt. Butch Garvin
launched his Early Times for a
short trip not far from the
ferry slip Wednesday morning
and caught 20 speckled trout
and three reds. All were
James Gergley and Matt
Hamilton made a river trip
early Monday morning and

found plenty of action. They
caught 25 redbass to 23 inch-
es, four flounder and a pair of
trout from aboard Matt's
On Wednesday morning,
James and Jack Ross on the;
Head Hunter caught 15 red-
bass to 22 inches, a flounder
and a trout.
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier, a few decent catches of
whiting were reported' off the
very end. Small blues and vel-
lowmouth are, beginning to
show but the Pier rails weren't
crowded last week. The best
report came from James
McCall who found the whiting
biting good out toward the
very end of the pier on
Saturday and Sunday morn-
ing. He caught 30.
The best whiting catches last
week came from ol' pro Capt.
David King. Anchored off the
redtops in 40 feet of water, he
caught nearly 100 whiting on
each of three trips last week.
Until the water warms a little,
the surf fishermen who can
throw the farthest will pick up
the best catches.
Capt. Kirk Waltz, on his
Enterprise, with Mark Collins
and Jeff Lageman at the jetties,
caught eight ringtails, a
sheepshead and a seabass.
Capt. Dave Sipler and Ken
Hubbard fished the surf at P.\.
and brought 15 whiting up on
the sand.
Al Wiltshire and and Carlin
Young fished the surf at 16th
Avenue South last Tuesday and
caught 50 whiting.
Capt. Chris Rooney, John
Goodling, William Goodling
and John Barrineau took the

they caught a 35-pound cobia,
a 28-pound grouper, eight
snapper to 17 pounds, three
scamp grouper and a three-
pound flounder along with
lots of beeliners.

Steelers big-game experience

the difference in Super Bowl

F football championship
games usually come dow
to "them what's been
there and knows the ropes"
over "them who hasn't." That
was the story in Super Bowl XL
just as it's been for years.
The Seattle Seahawks were
new at this game in which
the world's crown was at stake
and they had to play in
front of millions of television
viewers in a spectacular unpar-
alleled in sports. Bounce ball
addicts can talk about the NBA
frolics and March Madness all
they want, but nothing match-
es the Super Bowl, even if it's
gone from being just a football
game between the NFL's best
teams to what TV has turned
into a hoochie-coochie show.
Worse when the hoochie-
coochies are men.
The Seahawks lost to the
Pittsburgh Steelers, 21-10, but
they lost more than the game.
They lost face because it could
just as well have been Seattle
winning by that score.
The Seahawks lost to the
Jaguars at Alltel Stadium to
open the season, but they
could blame that on
Jacksonville's heat. Sunday
night's heat came not from
Detroit's icy blasts, but from
the pressure of what was at
While the Seahawks were


missing opportunities, the
Steelers were up to their old
tricks with runs, interceptions
and trick plays.
Jaguars fans used to hate
coach Bill Cowher when he
brought his team to town.
There was something evil in
his look, but we have to admit
he's one of the outstanding
coaches the NFL has seen in its
history. Sure, Cowher has lost
title games before this one, but
how many coaches have
stayed at the helm for 14
yeats? Of course, it helps if
you're working for owners like
the Rooneys, but how many
owners can you name like the
late Art Rooney and his fami-
The battle of cjatftdilaib,
also came down to youth vs.

experience. Only this time,
youth won.
In just his second NFL sea-
son, the Steelers' Ben
Roethlisberger out-duelled
Seattle's Matt Hasselbeck even
without passing for a TD, and
getting 123 yards to the loser's
273 because he kept the ship
steady. Hasselbeck had to over-
come penalties and at times
indecision. Plus a big intercep-
It was a fitting retirement
game for Jerome Bettis, who
finally "brought a champi-
onship back to Pittsburgh,"
and doing it in his hometown
of Detroit.
The game's MVP,
Pittsburgh's Hines Ward, out-
did Seahawks famed running
back Shaun Alexander, who
ripped off 95 yards in 20 trips,
but no TDs. The Steelers'
alphabet-name QB did better
than that when he squirmed
over by fingernails for his
team's first touchdown.
Roethlisberger may become
one of the greats like Terry
Bradshaw, Joe Montana and
John Elway of the past and
Peyton Manning, Tom Brady
and, of course, Byron Leftwich
of the present. Who knows?
But one thing Roethlisberger
has that they cannot take away
is his first Super Bowl victory.
tfial piis the boung QB in a
special class.
