While Atlantic Boulevard's ability to handle
increased traffic Is being touted as key to
whether a proposed Wal-Mart can be built in
Neptune Beach, most city officials are unsure
how the upcoming results of a related traffic
study will effect future commercial develop-
ments along the roadway.
But at least one city leader says it will spell
doom for the commercial corridor, citing that
the city's traffic requirements will thwart poten-
Many city officials say they need to see the
findings of a $6,000 traffic study recently
approved by the City Council before consider-
ing whether to allow a 117,000-square-foot Wal-
Mart Supercenter at 630 Atlantic Boulevard. The
city code requires that newly constructed busi-
nesses meet the city's concurrency requirements
meaning that the development won't negatively
impact adjacent services such as traffic and
The Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) lists that portion of Atlantic Boulevard
as a failing roadway, according to City Manager
Jim Jarboe, who added that the city's study of
the road will examine a larger area of corridor
than what the FDOT graded. But if the
results of the citys own traffic count study prove
that the roadway can't handle the proposed
Wal-Mart development, then can any new com-
mercial buildings be built along that portion the
"It could be difficult for anything [new to be
built along the corridor, given the city's traffic
requirements]," City Manager Jim Jarboe said
And Councilor Eric Pardee is bothered by that.

along Atlantic Boulevard.

What has been a long and
tumultuous process of passing
a new set of development stan-
dards for the Old Atlantic
Beach neighborhood took a big
leap forward last Thursday as
the city's Community
Development Board recom-
mended approval of a proposed
"community character" ordi-

The proposal which has
been scaled back from 24 pages
in the original version by a
consultant, to essentially four
pages basically limits the size
of new and renovated homes
in the neighborhood through a
set of design standards.
The goal of city officials is to
preserve the unique ambiance
and eclectic character of the
neighborhood by thwarting
the development of large,

Carotid artery disease occurs due to the buildup
of plaque, commonly known as the hardening of
the arteries, at the point where the carotid artery
divides into the internal and external arteries.
Patients who have this disease may be at risk for
stroke if the plaque is dislodged from the artery
wall. It can then travel through the blood stream
and may block blood flow to the brain.

used to treat the disease since the 50's, involves
general anesthesia and removing the plaque in

to help students
It is one of the best annual assistance programs
offered at the Beaches Back to School With BEAM.
Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry is already
collecting donations for its annual clothing drive. It's,
a great example of locals helping locals.
The nonprofit organization will hold its 13th
Clothing and Shoe Drive from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
July 29 to help needy Beaches families with school-
age children get the children ready for school.
If you have gently used clothing appropriate for
schoolchildren of all ages and sizes your dona-
tions are welcome,.
Also welcome are cash donations that will be used,
to fund BEAM's' dental program for needy .children"
and purchase school and dental supplies, underwear,
socks and shoe vouchers.
Backpacks and school supplies such as markers, col-
ored pencils, pencil bags with a zipper and paperback
dictionaries are also needed by the thousands of low-
income children at the Beaches, organizers said.
Donations will be'accepted at the BEAM offices at
850 6th Ave. S., suite 400 through July 28. :..,' ,
'Donated clothing, backpacks and other items will
be sorted July 28 at the Beach United Methodist
Church Life Center at 325 7th Ave. N.
BEAM project chairperson Karen Wolfson has over-,
seen the project for years, getting thousands of chil-
dren ready for school. She describes the project as,
mission work to be done in our community.
She is right.
Helping low-income parents get their children pre-'
pared to-attend school by properly outfitting and
equipping them is important work.-
"Back to School with BEAM is essential because
many families now depend on BEAM to help with the
cost of getting their children ready for school and for,
their child's dental care," BEAM reports.
Over 2,142 of children at the Beaches live below
the federal pover t level in homes with incomes at or'
below $15,000, according to BEAM.
Church groups and civic organizations are encour-
aged to collect donations and volunteer during the,
giveaway. Call 241-2326 for information or send anI
email to jaxbeam@'bellsouth.net.
We all have a stake in making sure all children are
ready for school.
A backpack, enough supplies and adequate cloth-
ing can go a long way to helping a child be well pre-
|,pared to focus on classroom lessons.

"We can't solve cases in 48 minutes. In
the real world, it takes a lot longer."
Tucker was among a handful of FDLE
employees who took time out of their
busy, work schedules to give a dozen

Bedtime USA in Jax Beach
Ahhhh. You're heading east across the
Intracoastal and already find yourself in
beach mode. One of the best things Sclence.
about living at the beach is sleeping at
the beach. And there's one thing that
makes sleeping at the beach even better -
and that's sleeping on a mattress tailored
to your individual preferences, says
Bedtime USA owner and factory-trained
and -certified mattress specialist Dave
Family-owned and operated and cele-
brating four years in business in
Jacksonville Beach, Bedtime USA is your A
mattress headquarters. Dave and his staff
have the expertise and inventory you
need to help you find the right mattress
at the right price.
"We are not a chain, yet we are one of
the only stores in northeast Florida and
southeast Georgia that carries such a
complete line of mattresses and bedding
products," said Dave, who' himself has
more than 20 years of experience in the .
business and has lived at.the Beaches for ..
seven years. "We have more than 40
mattresses on display, and we'll help you
find the one that's just right for you -
and your budget!"
No matter what type of mattress you're
looking for, Bedtime USA most likely has
it. The list of brand-name products avail-
able is impressive, including mattresses

The importance of a good night's sleep becomes appar-
ent when Dave reminds customers that they'll spend one
third of their lives in bed. "So at Bedtime USA customer
comfort is our no. 1 priority comfort in a mattress and
comfort in its price," he said.
"Because we have so many mattresses in our inventory,
we can offer our customers the most comfortable mat-
tress available in the most comfortable price range for
them," he added. "For example, we have twin sets for as
low as $199.95 and queen sets for as low as $299.95."
Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the
lowest price thie manufacturer allows, which ieiansi t'ivfi

bed pads, mattress protectors and even some 'beachy'
decorative items," said Dave.
"Adonis Furniture and Night and Day Furniture manu-
facture some of the best futons available," he added.
"They offer 80 different designs of futons, and we show-
case 15 models in our store, not to mention more than

"My younger players look up to them because
they know they're good, they're going to college
and they know they've been successful here at
Nease," said Mullins. "They will be successful

Winning second half title
will be tougher for Suns
T he Jacksonville Suns
almost outdid themselves
by winning the first half
title of the Southern League
season as neatly as they did.
Repeating the second half is
going to be a lot tougher.
To show how much talent
the Suns had in the first half,.
which ended Juine 21', nine of
their players were named to
the Southern League All-Star
game, which will be played
July 10 in Montgomery, Ala.
That's as,many as the Suns
have placed on the annual
honorary team in some years.
They had climaxed the first
half with a rousing road trip in
which they posted an amazing,
9-1 record, then came home to
win 10 straight.
That's a'far cry from the cur-
'rent road trip and it's a clear
indication of how things have

it also shows how much the
league is down this year, says
Suns president Peter Bragan, Jr.

Those who vote (coaches
and media) are people who
supposedly see all the teams
through the year and are in
the best position to evaluate
who the best are.
"But the league doesn't
always get the best votes.
Some, in fact, a lot of the
coaches, just might look at the
stats and pick a man without
ever seeing him. Mostly,
though, the votes are accurate
and tell the story."
As usual, Bragan will accom-
pany Suns players to
Montgomery and will attend
the annual league meeting.
there. Many subjects will come
up, including the schedule.
The Suns actually did better
this year with the current five-
game series than in the past,
where teams might go to two
or three cities on a road trip.
-"Going to two cities on a
trip, five games each, is a big
help financially and physical-

he would like to see is competi-

"It used to be in some
(minor) leagues that teams
played for the honor of host-
ing the All-Star game," Bragan
explained. "That made the
weeks 'leading up to the dead-
line, say July I, exciting for
them and the teams.
"Moving to every city like
now may be a nice thing, but
it takes away from it some of
the excitement to know, for
instance, that Mobile or

"The kid coming up hasn't
developed into a hitter, yet,"

"Since she did it, I had to

Their story is not unique.
More and more people are
running marathons than ever
before, and many people are
running their first marathon
in their 40s, 50s and even later
stages of life. In fact, according
to a Time Magazine report, the

Many who run a marathon
will tell you what a great expe-
rience it was.
"For me, it was great, like a
social event where you happen
to be running. There were
25,000 people lining the
streets cheering you on, rock
and roll'bands every mile or
so, 'and plenty of water and
s snacks to keep you going
along' the way," Warren added. ,
For those who have never
done it, running 26 miles
sounds like a Herculean task.
Warren did say that he felt
"beaten up" and definitely "hit
a wall after running about
three and half hours, but I was
able to get through it," finish-
ing in 4:45.
He then told me that "it was
hard, but not as hard as I
expected once I got into it. At
times you really didn't realize
you are running. Now, run-
ning from Fernandina to
Callahan would be different,
but in this you are so involved
that it was actually fun."
While Warren said that he
would not do marathons fre-
