The Atlantic Beach City
Commission has scheduled it's
next round of Neighbor to
Neighbor Beachside Chats, a
series of meetings where the
mayor and commissioners visit
different areas of the city to lis-
ten to residents' concerns about
ongoing issues. .
The initial chats, organized
by Mayor Don Wolfson, were
held in May. Wolfson at that
time visited four areas of the
city with a different city com-
missioner at each stop. Wolfson
said he would like to hold the
meetings every quarter with
each commissioner visiting a
different area than he or she
had previously.
The latest chats are scheduled
August 7 at the Adele Grage
Cultural Center, 716 Ocean
Boulevard with Mayor Pro Tem
Dezmond Waters
August 8 at Jordan Park,
1671, Francis Avenue' with
Commissioner Mike Bomo.
August 9 at Donner Park,
1671 George Street with
Commissioner Mike Bomo.
August 10 at Oceanside
Church of Christ, 1025 Snug
Harbor Court with
Commissioner Jamie Fletcher.
All meetings begin at 7 p.m.
Commissioner Sylvia
Simmons has a scheduling con-
flict in August and will likely be
unable to attend any of the the
scheduled dates, according to
City Clerk Donna Bussey.
Also, Bussey said that WVolfson
was not sure if he would be able
to attend each meeting.

tact the city at 247-5800.

"We were out there because of a special
detail we were working," Det. Sgt. Mark
Evans said Tuesday. "We had offices in dif-

The first water and sewer rate hike in10 years
is expected for Beaches Energy Services customers
beginning Oct. 1.
City Council members will consider an
increase of nearly 8 percent per year through
2008 to offset an increase in demand and high
costs associated with the widening of Beach
Boulevard and relocation of utilities, city officials
The City Council will consider the ordinance
to implement the proposed rate change of 7.75
percent a year over the next three years at 7 p.m.
Monday, Aug. 21 in council chambers at the
Jacksonville Beach City Hall.
Water and sewer utility rates have remained
constant for the last decade but city officials in a

notice to its 32,000 utility customers attributed
the proposed rate hike to the inflated road con-
struction costs.
The costs are associated with the state project
to widen Beach Boulevard to six lanes and replace
the McCormick Bridge with a fixed span bridge.
To accommodate the projects, all of the city-
owned water and sewer infrastructure will be relo-
cated to Shetter Avenue, which is owned by the

"We observed a- black male
pull out an SKS assault'rifle from
the trunk and fire 20-25 rounds
into the crowd in a southwester-
ly direction," Public
Information Officer Sgt. Tom
Bingham said.
"He barely had a chance to
throw [the weapon] into the car,
when officers were on him and
took him downi./No one was hit,
thank goodness. Everyone was
extremely lucky."
The 11:55 p.m. shooting was
not connected to another dead-
ly shooting that left a 41-year-
old Jacksonville man dead
blocks away just seven minutes
later, Bingham said.
Evans said the task force,
including assistance from sever-

department has helped in simi-
lar situations before, explaining
that a strong police presence
continued in the area usually
works to eliminate problems.
Business owners at nearby
hotels and restaurants were not

Temple fell Monday said they

Evans declined to reveal the,
number of occupants in the
vehicle or the type of weapon
used because the investigation is
still ongoing.
Detectives Daniel Watts and
Anthony Dziedkicki combed the

for any evidence that could

Often fireworks are to blame
for the explosive sound, but
once a gun casing was found a

decided to step up their pres-

"We were being proactive,"
said Evans. "We knew the
crowds were there and we want-

Evans said police will contin-

from, why they congregate in
Jacksonville Beach and establish
a motive for the violent pattern.

The Leader's Opinion

Time to be ready

for start of new

school year here

School start' s Friday in St. Johns County and Monday
in Duval County.
It's tempting to conclude that the lazy days of sum-
mer will soon give way to hectic, jam-packed schedules
for iost families. .
In tiuth, though, many people and organizations, as
well as parents, have worked quite hard during the
summer to keep youth occupied: and interested in a
varietyy of activities throughout the summer. School
may have been out of session, but summer has its own
scheduling demands and pressure on the families:
Coaches, camp counselors, surf instructors, art men-
tors, swim trainers, and the many others who work
hard with area youth each summer are due a roUnd of
appreciation for their efforts.
While summer days may hot be as lazy as poets and
songwTiters might have you believe, there is no doubt
that the upcoming start of school will be even busier
for most residents.
Beginning Friday, ,commuter traffic will likely snarl
as heavily-laden 'school buses lumber along their
routes. Students will begin lugging home books and
many families will once again start and end their days
depending on class schedules and assignments.
Early August may not be when most of the,.est of
the country goes back to school, but for our commu-
nity it's time to be ready for the opening of another
school year.

Deadline approaching to

To the editor:
In the last three elections the Primary
Election :for St. Johns County Commission
has been closed. In other words, only,

Democrats, Independents and others can't
.That means, more than 60,000 registered
voters won't be able to vote for County
Commissioner. In District 4 (Ponte Vedra) by
the time the November election rolls around,
you will have a choice between the. winner of
the Republican primary and a blank space for
a write in candidate from Crescent Beach, and
it won't count if you write in Siperman.,
If you are planning to vote in the Sept. 5
Primary, and find yourself stymied because of
the electoral process, you have until Monday
Aug. 7 to register as a Republican so you will'
be allowed to vote for County Commissioner
in Districts 2 & 4. After the Primary, you can
change your party affiliation back to what it
was. That way you'll be able to cast your bal-

lot' andi express your opinion at both the
Primary and General Elections this fall.
NON Partisan means every registered voter
can vote for the candidate of their choice.
Mostof our local elections are NON Partisa';
the School Board, Airport Authority, ,MSD,
Judges, St. Augustine, St. Augustine Beach,*
Hastings etc. Perhaps it's time to treat races
for County Commission the same way. After
all, the actions of the Commission have a
great impact on our quality of life and our tax
bills. A Charter form of government could
allow for non-partisan voting across the
board. ,
But for now, the -Commission races are
totally partisan, and therefore, vulnerable to
eleventh hour maneuvering that essentially
blocks large groups of citizens from casting
their votes.

buys long


in home

rT'he Jax Beach Woman's
Club's recent antiques
show (previewed in the
July 21 Leader) reminded me
of my late wife Lucy's infatua-
tion with elderly household
items. She and her sister
Frannie, another antiques
addict, would periodically go
on an extended expedition to
search out ancient, or at least
aging, artifacts that might go
on display in their digs.
Sometimes they wouldn't
buy 'anything, although they
clearly enjoyed the hunt as
much as any nimrod inmthe
woods. A logistics problem was
that Frannie lives in New
Jersey, so that anything she
acquired here on their "junk
jaunts" would have to be
schlepped or shipped there. If
it was something sizable
and/or heavy, that could get
sorta exhausting or expensive.
ticy faced the same obstacle if
she purchased such an item on
an antiquing safari -when she
went up to see Frannie.
The distance factor, however,
didn't deter Lucy from glom-
ming onto big and bulky col-
lectibles when on her own turf.
One of her most memorable
accomplishments was cor-
ralling a monster chest-of-
drawers that was owned by one
of Jacksonville's most promi-
nent families. I think she
picked it up at an estate sale-
well, not literally, and therein
lies a laugh.
Since I was working, she
enlisted the aid of a neighbor
woman, Marian (now
deceased), to. help with the
transportation. We had a con-
vertible then, so Lucy dropped
the top and recruited a couple
of guys 'at the sale to wrestle

It was investment-oriented,

Retired lifeguard Bill Horn of Jacksonville Beach holds a vintage Walters "torpedo" buoy he restored and used in Saturday's 73rd
annual Meninak Ocean Marathon Swim. Horn had the words "In loving memory of Missy McMahan" inscribed on the buoy.

Nurse memory buoys hfeguard at

Saturday Meninak Ocean Swim

Bill Horn is a. mainstay at the annual
NMeninak Ocean Marathon because of the
pride he has in being a 20-year member of the
historic American Red Cross Life Saving
Corps. "'
Saturday, the Jacksonville Beach resident
swam the 3.5-mile event for another reason:
In memory of his wife's late friend, Melissa i. ,
,"Missv" McMahan.
A Beaches native and a 1988 Fletcher High
School graduate, McMahan died of a brian
aneurism on Jan. 13. She was 34.
Horn competed in Saturday's race towing a
vintage, red-and-white Walters buoy that once
belonged to McMahan's great uncle, lames F. j
Howard, who captained the ARC Life Saving .
Corps in 1939.
McMahan's mother, Theresa of Neptune ,':
Beach, gave Horn the buoy in January after
her daughter was laid to rest at Beaches '.'y .' :..
' Memorial Park.
Horn's wife, Karry, went to high school and
nursing school with Missy McMahan. Both ''
women also worked together in the pediatric
oncology department at WVolfson Children's '
Horn, the chief flight nurse at Baptist
'Medical Center, spent this past spring and
most of the summer restoring the three-cham- Melissa :"Missy"
ber buoy to mint condition. 13. She was 34
"It was gun-metal gray when I got it," Horn
said after Saturday's annual ocean swim, a lifeguard-only event
*where participants are required to tow either a plastic or metal
life saving buoy.
"This thing will hold five people [in the water]. It's air tight."
Henry IV. Walters, an early member of the nearly century-old
ARC Life Saving Corps, invented the torpedo-shaped buoy in
1919, supplanting the early ring buoy.

phollo submilled
McMahan died Jan.

Walters had the invention patented,
and the device became official Red Cross
equipment in 1935.
"The Corps went to the plastic buoys in
1998," said Horn, who had the restored
Waltersbuoy.restrung just,days before
Saturdg's race. rbn'n rur. rol To Trha
As a finishing touch, Horri had the
words "In loving memory of Missy
McMahan" inscribed on one side of the
buoy, just above the Walters patent.
"It's been in my family for many years,".
said Theresa McMahan about the buoy,
which was passed down to her by her par-'
"Bill is very serious about the Corps.
That's why we gave it to him."
Horn said he plans to use the Walters
buoy again next year as a way to keep the
history of the Corps alive and also to pre-
serve McMahan's memory.
A former Miss Fletcher runner-up,
McMahani was a gifted. dancer, having
toured with Disney in Japan' and
She graduated from nursing school in
May 2000, and was formerly employed by
Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery Center and
Beaches Surgery Center.
She is survived by her parents, Theresa
and Bill McMahan of Neptune Beach,
three siblings and a grandmother, Mary
Pauline McMahan of Jacksonville.
Like Horn, McMahan had a passion for

trauma care.
.Prior to her untimely death, McMahan worked as an emer-
gency room nurse at-Shands Jacksonville.
At Baptist Medical Center, Horn flies as part of a three-person
crew aboard Life Flight, an air ambulance.

Bailey Johnson's fifth-grade
language arts assignment at
Seabreeze Elementary in
Jacksonville Beach is now in
book form, thanks to her for-,
mer homeroom teacher, Joe
"Being the nosy person that
I am, I asked her if I could
read it and saw that it had a
lot of potential," said Andrew,
who teaches fifth-grade social
studies at Seabreeze.
"I knew a publisher who
was looking for children's
books, so I drew a bunch of
illustrations and helped
Bailey tweak the story."'
The result is "The Three
Lady Fish," a 36-page softcov-
er book co-authored by
Johnson and Andrew with 18
full-color illustrations.
Andrew said the book is an
aquatic takeoff on "The Three
Little Pigs" and "Little Red
Riding Hood."
"It's her basic core story,
with a few modifications,"
said Andrew, who first read
Johnson's essay in April.
"We spent the summer
working with a graphics per-
son and were hoping to have.
the book done in September."

Flower everywhere' in O'"rien 's kitchen

O ne of Ellen O'Brien's
most treasured posses-
'sions is a 100-year-old
wooden rolling pin that
belonged to her grandmother,
Ellen Donachy McNulty, who
was born in Ireland.
When she was 12, McNulty
was sent to work as a scullery
maid in the mansion of an
English lord, scrubbing, wash-,
ing and cleaning in the
kitchen. '
Her apprenticeship paid off.
By age 18, McNulty was a
cook at the mansion. .
McNulty eventually emi-
grated to America, raising a
family that included O'Brien's
mother, Anne McNulty Boyle.
Boyle and her husband had
five children, Ellen being the
second oldest. The family
lived on Long Island, N.Y.
O'Brien, a Ponte Vedra resi-
dent for 13 years said her
mother, who inherited the
rolling pin before her, made
all of her baked goods from

ies, cake, pies, biscuits, and,
Often on rainy day's,
O'Brien said, all her siblings
would help their mother
make doughnuts, each
assigned a particular task,
such as filling the doughnuts,
with jelly. ,
O'Brien fondly recalled a
childhood where "flour was
everywhere" in the kitchen.
O'Brien said she first began
cooking seriously when she
lived in a small Manhattan
apartment on 85th Street.
Her travels abroad afid an
abundance of specialty shops
in New York inspired her to
explore different cuisines..
After.moving to Colts Neck,
NJ., following her marriage

to her husband, Ray, she host-
ed dinner parties for three
weekends in a row, invited 50
guests at a time to her home.
O'Brien prepared all the
food for the parties, taking
care of all the little details
herself, including ordering
flowers for the tables.
A variety of desserts or
breads, all made.from scratch,
were always served, among
them Almond Pound Cake,
Irish Soda Bread (her grand-
mother's recipe), or Apple.,
SPies, using her grandmother's
rolling pin to roll out the

,Documatica Legal Forms
Inc. has released a legal kit
designed specifically for vic-
tims of schoolyard bullying.
The kit, which features logs
to record bullying events, and

an online form to convert the
records into a legal Notice of
Harassment, is customizable
for any common law jurisdic-
tion in the U.S.
The forms are available to
the public at www.documati-
The notice, designed to be
served to the bully's principal,
teachers, and parents, sum-
marizes the bulk's actions
and correlates them with vio-
lations of criminal or civil
law. Upon delivery, the recip-
ient is obligated to address
the situation, or *face
increased liability for the
bully's behavior.
Currently, 47 states and
several Canadian provinces
have some form of parental
liability legislation in place.
"This kit is revolutionary,
in that it provides a much-
needed legal and political
recourse for victims of severe
harassment and their fami-
lies," said Jeff Dare, manager
of Product Promotion. "If we
can help just one family, it
will be worth the effort."
Current statistics indicate
that bullying in American
schools is occurring at an
alarming frequency. It is esti-
mated that 30 percent of U.S.
students in grades six to 10
are involved in bullying,
either as victims or,aggres-
sors, and 60 percent witness
bullying at least once a: day.
Furthermore, a study by the
U.S. Department of Education
found that 75 percent of
school shootings occur as vio-
lent reactions to bullying. In
the long term, several sources
report that bullying-can lead
)to mental health problems,
anxiety, depression, and even

Practice gets serious

as Jaguars don pads


Jacksonville Jaguars training
camp turned serious Monday
night as players donned pads
for the first time and participat-
ed in some spirited "Okla-
homa" drills that pit an offen-
sive lineman, a defender and a
running back in full-contact
Rookie running back Maurice
Drew-Jones had a number of
carries in the Oklahoma drills
and also had the vociferous
support of the 3,109 fans who
turned out at the Alltel Stadium
practice fields.
"It's good to get some contact
and good to have fans here to
see it," said Jones-Drew. "I
think the crowd kind of got us
going tonight."
After only three days of
camp, Jaguars head coach lack
Del Rio likes what he sees from
the team's offense.
"I think that offensively, this-
is the best start we've had in
training camp in four years -
so that's positive," he said. "I
.think you can see the work
that's being put in, the devel-
opment of some of our young
players. in particular on

offense, and that's exciting for
the Jaguars." ,

finally got started with a
hamstring pull from "condi-

that's an example of "condi-.

settle for just stretching -

too much.
Nothing new about the for-

and Santa Claus to come, it's
a big disappointment.
