at 1671 Francis Ave. by
roughly 1,000 square feet
will cost about $75,000.
Habitat has also agreed to

The Atlantic Beach City

Beaches Habitat to con-

Atlantic Beach voters this November
will have the opportunity to change the
city's charter, capping the height limit
of all future structures sans the Sea
Turtle Inn at 35 feet.
The City Commission Monday unani-
mously approved an ordinance placing
the 35-foot height limit referendum on
the Nov. 7 election ballot. If approved
by voters, only another voter referen-
dum could change the height limit in
the city charter. And that would mean a
35-foot-high limit would be in place in
all three Beach cities, as neighboring
Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach

city of Atlantic Beach to protect its char-

Any portion of existing structures
over 35 feet tall will be grandfathered
in, as proposed in the ordinance. The
height referendum excludes portions of
the lot occupied by the Sea Turtle Inn at

Road work will halt if graves found, contractor vows
by LIZA MITCHELL
Two sides of an emotionally
sensitive road project came
together Saturday to discuss
how to handle potential grave
sites inside the original bound-
aries of an African-American
cemetery' in acksonsille Beach.
About 30 community mem-
bers in Pablo Beach, many of
whom spoke of family members
buried in Lee Kirkland Cemetery
on Beach Boulevard, attended
the meeting with city' and trans-
portation officials at St. Andrew
Community members are
concerned that the widening of
Beach Boulevard will encroach
on burials thought to rest in the
right of way.
The planned realignment of
Penman Road could also pave
over graves outside the eastern
border of the cemetery, residents
Maxine Terrell, president of
Pablo Renewal m Duval East
(PRIDE) Inc., organized the
meeting to give a voice to both
sides of the issue.
"I really wanted them to see
each other. These are not just
anomalies. These are people's
families," she said. "It's an anom-

Nancy Broner, in her bid for
reelection as the District 2
(Beaches) representative on
S the Duval County School
Board, says it's her goal to help
the school system evolve to
better prepare students for the
demands of today's ever
changing global economy.

environment. [It's my goal] to
try and constantly stay in
touch with what our society
requires of people," Broner
said, adding that students in
the United States are now
competing with students from
all over the world for jobs.
"That [global economy] has
changed the level of expecta-
tions we have for students.
This is a different world."
Broner, a Jacksonville Beach
resident, has lived at the
Beaches for over 47 years. She'
and her husband, Tom, have
three adult children Ashley,
Alex and Meredith.
Broner, who was born in
Lexington, Ky., moved to
Jacksonville Beach when she
* was 6 years old. She attended
San Pablo Elementary and
Fletcher Junior and Senior
High. She earned a bachelor's
degree in English from Stetson
University and a master's in
Arts and Teaching from
Jacksonville University. Her
parents, Bob and Ruby Scott,
founded The Leader in 1963
but later sold it.
Broner taught at Fletcher
High School from 1978 to
1981 and has also taught at
Jacksonville University. Broner
has worked in human
resources for the U.S. Navy in
both Cleveland and at
Mayport Naval Station and is

immoral," Brbner said.

John Meisburg, who is seek-
ing the District 2 seat on the
Duval County School Board,
said he is running as the candi-
date for change.
His platform is to "restore tra-
ditional Godly values," improve
safety in the schools and
restore academic excellence to
the Duval County public
zsihols, he sathd-tring
,itied ? tiThie saacJes Leafr
offices last week.
Meisburg, 59, is a federal
administrative law judge and
has lived in Jacksonville's
Southside area for 12 years.
"The Duval County Public
Schools are in crisis. Thfe public
is unaware of how bad things
really are," said Meisburg, the
father of six children. Noting
that one daughter is a teacher
in the system, he said he has
taken his younger children out
of the public schools.
"Thousands of parents and
taxpayers in Duval County
have been forced to remove
their children from our
schools," Meisburg has said
during his campaign. "They are
confronted with having to pay
thousands of dollars each year
to send their children to private
school or home school because
our public schools are so bad."
Meisburg has said that restor-
ing traditionall Godly values"
will go a' long way toward cor-
recting some of the woes in the
system. He suggested that the
"National Motto In God we
Trust" be hung in every class-
room, along with the Ten
Commandments. In addition
he has suggested using the
Bible as a textbook and com-
pelling children to say the
pledge of allegiance daily.
When asked why students
would be swayed by a sign in
their classroom to modify their
behavior, he explained that the
signs would be the "beginning,"
adding that schools need to
exert leadership as children are
in classrooms longer than they
are in homes, he said.
He said the schools' many
serious problems, including
high rates of sexually transmit-
ted disease, suicide and use of
illegal drugs are a concern for
all, as are low academic rank-
ings. : :
"When Nancy Broner [the
incumbent he is challenging]
says 'we're on the right track,' I
wonder what planet she's been
living on and I think she's
wearing rose, colored glasses. I,
think voters .will vote for
Expanded character educa-
tion based on the Ten
SCommandments is needed, he
said, adding it would pass legal
muster. A lawyer for 35 years,
Meisburg said he is '"not afraid
of the ACLU."
"We need to go back to the
future. If we had Godly values
we would save [$3.5 million
spent annually on police in the
school] and use that for com-
puters and teacher salaries.

Corporal punishment also
needs to make a comeback, he
"Corporal punishment is not
child abuse. It is not. It is
Biblical, and it is very effective,
especially in elementary
school. Studies repeatedly
show when America had cor-
poral punishment in schools
the worst problem we had in
school was chewing bubble
gum in class. We need to go
back to the values that made
America great." Meisburg said.
"Most of the school districts in
'Florida still use corporal pun-
ishment, and I favor a return to
it wlen the parents agree and
Nleisburg also said he sup-
ports drug testing of students.
"The Supreme Court has said
that drug testing of students is
legal, and President Bush has a
new federal program to do this.
I believe that Duval Count),
should implement President
Bush's program as soon as pos-
sible. I have been told that 40
percent of our students are
using illegal drugs. This is an
epidemic that must be halted."
Meisburg said. "We can never
have academic excellence if
our students are all on drugs."
Meisburg said he considers it
a "travesty" that the county's
new high school planned near
Butler' Boulevard is still three
years away from opening. That
school is expected to alleviate
overcrowding at surrounding
schools, including Sandalwood
which is the county's largest
school and has come under fire
for safety concerns.
"The failure for this board to
plan for a high school is one of
the Worst failures' of govern-m
ment," he said.' :He said the
school board 'and the
Jacksonville., City Council
should regularly meet on issues
of shared concern.
NMeisburg 'said the time for,
magnet. schools 'may be: over
and neighborhood schools
should be the standtird. He
explained that having children
from 'the same neighborhoods
attend the same schools helps
Meisburg also said: that he
believes every. principal and
teacher in the school system
should live in Duval County.
He said that teachers should be
paid $40,000 annually.
"Jacksonville is a great, city
and for people to send children
to second-rate public school is
a travesty," he said.
by board candidate
John Meisburg, candidate for
Duval County School Board
District 2 seat, said last week
that the hiring of
Superintendent Joseph Wise is
a good reason to replace
incumbent Nancy Broner.
In a written statement,
Meisburg said that
"'Superintendent Wise is now
involved in serious allegations

and moraly. v.

Delaware, where Wise came
from, means the superintend-
ent has "a big black cloud of
scandal hanging over his
"How Nancy Broner and our
School Board could hire him
for Jacksonville is unbeliev-
able," Meisburg said.
Meisburg said in both a tele-
phone interview with The
Leader and in a press release
that Wise does not match "the
values of Jacksonville.
"To make matters worse, I
understand that Dr. Wise has
told his staff that he has an
'alternate' gay lifestyle.
Moreover, the gay agenda is
now being advanced in our
schools. I have been told by
many sources at the School
Board that 'out of closet' les-
bians and homosexuals have
been appointed as principals at
at least four schools, and that
at least one Christian principal
was fired because she would
not allow gay dubs in her high
school." Meisburg said.
"This is dearly the beginning
of the gay agenda in the public
schools of Jacksonville, and
this is totally incompatible
with the Judeo-Christian val-
ues of our city," Meisburg said.
"It may be one thing to have
a so-called 'alternative gay
lifestyle' in private. It is quite
another thing to be placed in a
position of authority over our
children, and try to promote
your homosexual lifestyle on
them," Meisburg said. "If these
allegations are true, this
Superintendent must go,
"Clearly, she either failed to
do her homework or has an
agenda even more liberal than
suspected," Mesburg said of
Broner, who was chair of the
board when it agreed in 2005
to .hire Wise.
Broner has said that Wise
was hired for his excellent skills
and came highly recommend-
ed with national accolades.
Background checks showed
no problems at all with Wise,
Broner has said, adding that
sexual orientation is not even a.
legal question to ask job appli-

Atlantic Beach city commis-
sioners Monday moved one step
closer to approving a."commu-
nity character" ordinance, as
the nuts and bolts of the pro-
posed development standards
fox Old Atlantic Beach were
hashed out at a workshop meet-
Commissioners reached a
consensus on such controversial,
issues as the boundaries of
where to apply the standards
and setting a calculation for
how large of a home can be built
on a given lot size. Now the city
staff will take the commission-
ers' input and draft a proposed
ordinance for tentative consid-
eration later this month, accord-
ing to dct officials.
The proposed standards are
over a year in the making and
are aimed at .thwarting the
development of large houses
which some say don't fit in the
,"character" of the Old Atlantic
At the end 'of the roughly two-
hour workshop, the, commis-
sioners agreed that the standards
would apply to:
*Ahern Street and
Sturdivant Avenue between the
beach and Sherry Drive on the:
extending north to 11th Street
on the west;
*11th Street extending
east to East Coast Drive;, .-"
*East Coast Drive
extending north to' 16th Street,
and 16th Street extending east
to the beach.,
And three of the five commis-
sioners, agreed that the size of
new residential developments in
that area should not exceed 54
percent of the total lot size,
excluding up to a. 500-square-
foot attached garage which
would not be included in the 54
That Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of
.54 would allow a home of
roughly 3,510 square feet on a
6,500-square-foot lot and up to a
500-square-foot attached garage,
bringing 'the total sie of the
heated arid cooled' area plus
garage to 4,010 square feet. The
FAR is defined as the ratio of
total counted floor areas of a
building compared to the total
lot area iFAR = total counted
floor area + total lot area) and is
considered one of the key comn-
ponents to holding down the
mass and scales of homes, offi-
cials said. '
Also, commissioners agreed!
that any third floor portion of a
-residence.must be no more than
50 percent of the second floor;
.and the side wall plate height of
structure cannot exceed 22 feet
: TwO shade trees of at least a 4-
Sinch caliper are required to be
installed. One of the trees will
have to be planted in the front
yard. The other.may be placed
anywhere on the lot, according
to the proposed standards.
The commissioners agreed
not to require an annual review
of the standards if' approved,
saying that any problems with
the ordinance could be brought
to the attention of commission-
ers without that requirement.

To the editor:
Since being soundly defeat-,
ed in her bid for re-election to
the Board of County)
Commissioners of St. Johns
County four years ago, Mary
Kohnke has been an extreme-
ly vocal critic of our commis-
sioners and their policies.
Recently, she again lambasted
Maguire, going so far as to say
that he has consistently voted
against the Ponte Vedra com-
munity during his term. I
think it is wise to consider the
source: when weighing such
matters. If she is to be so crit-
ical, perhaps a retrospective
'of Ms. Kohnke's position on
some of the issues affecting
our area are in order:
Ms. Kohnke tried very
hard to force Ponte Vedra
Beach and Sawgrass residents
to pay for theimaintenance of
"the Guana Drainage Basin,
which lies between the north-
ern county line and Mickler
Road, despite the fact that
Jacksonville Beach, State Road
A1A and .. Turner Butler
Boulevard all move storm
water-into the drainage basin.
Fortunately, the other county
commissioners rightly voted
that this was a public works

((MSDI residents desired to
amend the MSD charter in
order to cap taxes and capital
expenditures. One of the pro-
cedures to accomplish this
amendment process required

Delegation Istate legislators.)
to approve the amendment.
This was purely a MSD affair
and had nothing to do with
the county. However,
pressed one of our local legis-
lators not to let the amend-
ment proceed, thus meddling
in MSD politics. Fortunately
for IMSD residents, she failed
MSD residents over-
syhelmingly- -opposed-t'- the.
ividening of Solana Road east
of A1A. As their elected repre-
Ssentative, they sought
Commissioner Kohnke's sup-
port on the issue. Instead,
she insisted the project move
forward, even after it was
clearly demonstrated that the
project was completely
unnecessary because it was
based on a flawed study of
area traffic patterns during
holidays while Corona Road
was closed! After a new traffic
study was conducted, the
other county commissioners
followed the recommenda-
tion of county staff and can-
celed the project, agreeing it
was not only unnecessary, but
The aforementioned new
traffic study had been paid for
by residents, using a well-
respected FDOT-certified and
approved traffic engineering
firm. In light of the fact that
the new study proved the
project unnecessary, thereby
saving the county $180,000,
residents requested reim-
burserment for the $3,000 cost
of the new traffic study.
Commissioner Kohnke voted
against reimbursement but,
Gratefully, was out-voted by
her fellow commissioners.-
Few would 'argue that a
sanitary sewer system is more
desirable than septic systems.
However, not everyone wants
to reach into their own pock-
et to pay for the construction
of a sewer system. Ms.
Kohnke was a major player in
forcing homeowners in the
MSD to pay for most of the
cost of constructing their
sewer system, despite the fact
that she lives on the
. Intracoastal Waterway in a
house with a septic system
and would not be served by
this new sewer system. I trust
Ms. Kohnke will be as eager to
pay, for her own sewer system
when the time comes.
The county, with intense
lobbying by Ms. Kohnke, sold
this new MSD sewer system to
the Jacksonville Electric
Authority L(EA). For this priv-
ilege, the county received a
"franchise fee" of approxi-
mately $7 million from JEA.
Ms. Kohnke did not work so
hard to see that those funds
were directed to help offset
residents' cost of the system,
which ranged from $9,000 to
over $20,000 per household.
Instead, $6 million of the
franchise fee went into the
county's general fund.
Ms. Kohnke was adamant
that this MSD sewer system
be a gravity system, even
though less expensive accept-
able alternatives had been
built in other areas of the
county. The community of St.
Augustine by the Sea had a
sewer system constructed at
very little cost. to residents
and it is not mandatory that
- they hook up to the system.
The former commissioner
made no effort to help reduce
costs to MSD residents.
Fortunately for those resi-
dents, county commissioners
again followed the recom-
mendation of county staff,
thus saving homeowners at
least an additional $10,000,
and more than an extra year

was in office Ms. Kohnke was

remarks, directed at not only
county staff, but her fellow
commissioners and even her
constituents. In fact, she is
the only St. Johns County

the position of chair because

More letters to the editor:
Atlantic Beach chats are useful
in voicing residents' concerns
To the editor:
The Leader story, "AB chats get little atten-
dance" (Aug. 11, 2006), is a vision of the trees
that obscures the sight of the forest. I have
been to five of the eight "neighborhood chats"
and the chat held at Oceanside Church of
Christ in Marsh Oaks on Aug. 10 which the
Leader failed to attend was the best of them
all for an authentic exchange among two com-
missioners and nine residents.
At the initial chat three months ago, Marsh
Oaks. residents suggested that the city repair
the flawed sidewalks along Rose and Orchid
streets. We learned that for about $30,000 the
city can re-build sidewalks along those streets,
replacing the sections that tilt so far to one
side or the other that they are virtually useless.
This made more sense to everyone than build-
ing a new sidewalk along Main Street at. the
present time, as had been proposed earlier by
Marsh Oaks residents also asked the city to
come up with an innovative solution to safety
issues at school bus stops in the neighborhood,
a solution that includes shelter, trash cans and

There also was a broad discussion of rer

clear violation of city codes but is
addressed by city government despite citiz
complaints rental housing that was said to
associated with illicit activities. The reside
who complained gave commissioners nam

Maybe the best we can hope for is that thi

Ponte Vedra Bea
Who 'benefits' from ordinance.
To the editor: .
The commission seems determined to con-
vince residents like me that this ordinance will'
not adversely effect the value of my property,
but will rather enhance its value.
As a resident of Atlantic Beach, I find it
interesting that the proposed ordinance, if
'passed, will only 'benefit" a certain area of
Atlantic Beach. It appears that the majority of
the commission is advocating passage of this
legislation, in some form, contrary to the wish-'
es of at least 1,089 citizens of our community.
Ironically, four out of the five commissioners
and their real property will not get to "benefit"
from the ordinance. If I get to "benefit" from
this ordinance, then I think all you commis-
sioners should "benefit" from it as well a
your property values will increase just l
mine. Enlighten me as to why you would
want to "benefit," too? .
Oops, I stand corrected. I understand t"

Sean King, 9, with his new Trek 220 mountain bike from American Bicyle Co. of Jacksonville Beach. King won the bike
after purchasing and studying a summer workbook designed for third and fourth graders.
Summertime study nets
by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
ASSOCLI TE EDITOR
Sean King didn't exactly crack the
books over the summer vacation.
He did, however, study one summer
That extra credit paid off Saturday,
Aug. 5, when King, a fourth grader at
Jacksonville Beach Elementary, claimed
a new Trek mountain bike at American
Bicycle Co. in Jacksonville Beach.
King won the bike as part of a nation-
al promotion by the publisher of the
* best-selling Summer Bridge Activities
King's mother, Nancy, bought the
student new bike
$12.95 workbook at the Books-A-
Million at Jacksonville Beach, and then
entered Sean's name in a random draw-
ing for a Trek bike '
"We never thought we'd win," said'
King, whose son is enrolled in gifted
classes at : Jacksonville Beach
Elementary, an. ,academic magnet
"We were shocked. Sean's teachers
recommended the workbook. We
bought it at the end of the school year."
King's son didn't have to complete
the book to win the new 21-speed Trek
Bike, which retails for about $270.
But new bike or not, Nancy King said
she purchased the workbook as a means
for her son to keep his study skills sharp
over the break.
"We've done other workbooks in
prior summers," said King, who works
in the accounting department for
Amports, a portside vehicle processing
firm located at Blount Island.
"It has math, science and language
arts exercises. It even has paper air-,
planes in it."
The workbook is designed to "keep
kids busy, happy, and learning between
grades," according to Greensboro, N.C.,
based Rainbow Bridge Publishing.

A Ponte Vedra Beach resi-
dent, Taylor likes to have peo-!,
ple'around when she cooks.
She and her husband
designed their kitchen so that
Anita could visit with guests
while she prepares food.
Taylor affectionally calls her
kitchen "Anita's cooking
school," because guests are
always asking her questions
while she cooks.
The Taylors moved to Ponte

13 years ago, following Bill's
retirement. The couple for-

Anita owned a sportswear
shop. She currently works for
Growing up in Sweden,
Taylor and her siblings helped
with small chores around the
kitchen while their mother
cooked. Taylor didn't serious-
ly begin cooking herself until
she was a newlywed.
While the influence of
Swedish cuisine is evident in
her cooking, Taylor adds new:
recipes regularly to her eclec-
tic collection. The Internet,
especially Epicurious.com, is
one of her favorite sources of

meats, and vegetables.

the one time she fried chick-

never do that again.
Lighter preparations with-

use of potatoes and pasta
keep their meals healthy and
not overly high in calories.
Seafood, both fish and
shellfish, is a favorite which
Taylor says is almost easier to
prepare than meats. A recipe
for fish, Mahi Mahi on a Bed

This recipe is representative
of the poached or baked
preparation Taylor often uses
for fish. To make this dish,
she cooks fresh mahi mahi

few minutes and served with
the spinach along with green
beans flavored with lemon.
Ginger Carrot Soup is one
of several cold soups that
Taylor prefers to serve instead
of a salad. She admits that
making salads is a little
tedious to her so instead she
often serves a cold soup for a
refreshing and delicious
change of pace.
The sweetness of the carrots
and orange juice is balanced
by the flavor of the ginger in
Taylor's carrot soup. After

Rick's Used Cars Celebrates Grand Opening
This Week at New Mayport Road Location
After serving the .Beaches for more than 20 years in
Jacksonville Beach, Rick's Used Cars has moved to a brand-
new location at 1919 Ma\ port Road in Atlantic Beach and
they want you to stop by and help them celebrate.
"Our grand opening runs through Saturday, Sept. 2, and we
want past, present and future customers to drop in and see our
new facility, have a free hot dog and soft drink and maybe
even win a prize!" said Rick, %who along with his wife, Brenda,
owns Rick's Used Cars. Sons Scott and Ricky as well as almost-
family Ronnie are on.staff.
Prizes include a beach cruiser bicycle, free gasoline, free oil
changes, tree car detailing and gift certificates. "We're also
offering discounts to our customers who refer friends or new
customers," he said. "We're excited about Our new location,
and we invite e\ervone to drop in and help us celebrate!"
Familyv-owned and operated and well known at the Beaches,
Rick's Used Cais was formerly located at, 1404 Beach Blvd. in''
Jacksonville Beach.. We purchased this new property a couple
of years ago and picked this location because we believe in the
Mayport Road corridor," said Rick. "There's only limited unde-
veloped commercial property on this side of the Ditch, and we
feel that Mayport Road will be the next Beach Boulevard."
Even though their location is new, customers can still count
on the same top-notch service and reasonable prices' they've
come to appreciate from Rick's Used Cars' since the, company
first opened in Jacksonville Beach on April 1, 1986, at Third
Street and 14th Avenue. South.
"We're a buy here/pay here lot, and we personally financee
everything we sell," said Rick. "We've retailed probably over'
6,000 cars here at the Beaches, and we've personally financed
5,000 of those cars," he said.
Rick and Brenda don't sell any of their, loans. Instead, they
have developed the criteria for their loan approval and are
able to offer customers a weekly payment schedule.
"We sell cars that are about five to seven years old to people
who have challenging credit.problems," said Brenda. "Because
we finance the cars ourselves arid there's no middle -man,
everything is upfront and convenient for our customerss"
Rick's Used Cars' customers .appreciate this personalized
service and convenience, says Rick. "Of the customers on our
accounts receivable, 70 percent of them have bought three or
four cars from us," he said.
Rick says the biggest draw. for repeat customers is the zero-
percent interest Rick's Used Cars has on all their car loans.
"Car dealerships can charge them up to 28 percent," he said.
"So" when .they come to us and find out we're not going to
charge interest ever and that the sticker price on a car's wind-
shield is the price they'll pay and that we also finance the sales
tax, they're interested."
Rick explains how it works. "First we ask customers about
their budget and price range and the kind of car they're look-
ing for," he said. "We're easygoing and customer oriented, and:
we're not high-pressure salesmen at all."
Instead, the staff at Rick's Used Cars is upfront. "All prices
are posted on the windshield," said Rick. "We, show you how
much it is, how much you have to put down, the weekly pay-
ment and zero interest with no hidden surprises." Down
payments usually run from $400 to $2,000, depending on the
car, and the bulk of what they sell is under a thousand dollars
down payment, he said.
;, iWe verify information from eachcu'tsteqr -'like who-they"
are, whe f'teye live, 'wfliee'iWey work and then check five area
references who know them," he said. "We also require a valid
Florida drivers license and a cash down payment."
Rick's Used Cars then records the title and, once the loan is
paid.off, releases the lien. Once a loan is established, weekly
payments can be made by check, money order or cash.;
"The whole process can take as little as 30 minutes and then
our customers are driving off the lot," said Brenda. "We'll show
them cars and they'll show us some they're interested in and
then. take a test drive and even take the cars someplace else to.
get them checked out before purchase." Then Brenda explains
the application and prepares the paperwork for the loan.
"Our payments are as low as $50 and up to $70 a week," said

A lot of families need a little second-hand car, Brenda said.
"They don't want to drive to California they want it for
around here," she said. "We sell a lot of second cars to 16 and
17 year olds. whose parents get the loans and then the kids
make the weekly payments themselves," she said. "It offers the
kids the chance to be responsible, and by age 18 they're ready
to step up to a nicer car."
Rick's Used Cars prides itself on cultivating friends and not
just customers. "We make it convenient for our customers
because we don't want to sell them one car-we want to sell
them five cars," said Rick.
Rick's Used Cars does more than sells cars. They prepare cars
for sale on site. "We have two service bays where we clean and
repair our cars to properly prepare them for sale to the public,"
said Rick. "We try to buy with our customers in mind and

structural elements of your home that are difficult
or impossible to change in the future. There are
three elements that should not be compromised.

Windows and doors provide form and function.
They affect how your home looks, feels and

Windows and doors come in many types,

requirements, energy efficiency features, and a
wide range of materials and prices. You may be

The absence of McCann may
hamper Fletcher's new offensive
scheme, which is a departure
from the Senators' traditional

it's a stretch to say Fletcher has

Nease High ready to renew rivalry against Bolles
By ROBERT DeANGELO
Nease High football players will get a chance to
hit someone else this Friday night in the Pre-
Season Classic at Bolles, and if last Saturdav's
scrimmage at Da-is Park is any indication they're
anxious to do just that.
In a spirited contest pitting the Panthers'
offense against the defense, several things were
evident: Nease remains a pass-oriented team,
there is strength, size and experience on the offen-
sive and defensive lines, and coach Craig
Howard's schemes are again designed to light up
"Scrimmag-ing against yourself isn't always fun
but you need to do it to get the kinks out,"
Howard said. "You're always worried about get-

After a sluggish start, junior quarterback Ted
Stachitas and the fust team offense found their
rhythm, resulting in a few memorable scoring
plays including a 45-yard TD romp by the QB.
Speedster Quinton Huggins, who will line up as
a receiver, running back and defensive back this
season, also broke an off-tackle run for a long TD
down the right sideline.

Jones and Jones-Drew shine in preseason opener
A s the Jacksonville Jaguars
prepare for their first
ome preseason game
Saturday night against
Carolina, C6ach Jack Del Rio
has a lot to mull over, but
maybe a lot to be cheerful
He's not happy about the
way the Jaguars staggered
about like a drinking horse in
the first quarter down in
Miami, but he liked the way
the offense suddenly came to
in the second period when it
was down 10-zip.
What was going, on, fans and
aides alike wondered. How
come the Byron Leftwich
machine was sputtering like an
old Tin Lizzie?
Then the sun shone through
despite the night air, the U.S.
Marines spiritually arrived arid
presto! the Jaguars had come to
and were on the way to a tie
game, thanks to a stadium'
shaking 50-yard play from
Leftwich to Matt Jones on one
of the beautiful pass-catch-runsi
the Jags have seen since way
back in the Jimmy Smith days."'
That was followed by a 21-
yard field goal by Seth Marler,
brought back from the Twilight
Zone to fill in for wounded
If Marler goes down, maybe
they ,can bring back Mighty
Mouse Mike Hollis, 'one of the
early heroes in Jaguars history.
Mike would fit right in with
diminuitive Maurice Drew and
But the first story of the
night, and maybe'the biggest,
of all, despite the 31-26 victory
over the Dolphins, was the
long-awaited star flash of the
Arkansas traveler, Matt Jones.
That was the dazzling kind of
catch-and-scoot and dodging
the enemy Jaguars fans have
waited to see since the team
drafted him last year.
. Oh, Matthew, what kept you
so long? Minus his golden
locks (some claimed he met a
gal named Delilah and drifted
off to sleep on a date), maybe
that's, improved his speed.
After some of the draft duds
in,recent years, it's encouraging
to .see Matt Jones turning into
what Wayne Weaver and staff
expected when they opened
the safe to him in the 2005
Del Rio really didn't expect
to play the starters much after
the opening stanza and didn't.
This, as everyone knows, is the
time to' test the newcomers I
and see what they have to
offer, if anything.
It's also a time to let quarter-
backs David Garrard and
Quinn Gray out of cold stor-
age, massage them back to life
and.let them play with the big
boys. It gets. lonesome being
Garrard once again showed'
why he would make some
team a valuable starting QB,
passing for 172 yards (6-for-l1)
and two touchdowns. This, of
course, is only preseason, but
Garrard has proved himself
when filling in for me injured
Leftwich. : .
,Quinn Gray got the most of
his short tenure, completing
two-of-four and also having a
When they finally got going,
the Jaguars offense looked
about as well as expected, but_
it took a while to come, to the
The defense, expected to be
ready, was way behind and if it
hadn't been for an offense that
produced three THREE -
touchdown passes of more
than 50 yards, this game would
have gone down me drain.
Ironically, all three of those
passes were divided among the
three J pitchers.
Leftwich. is in no danger of
losing his job. Heaven forbid.
Mr. Weaver and Coach James
Harris will see to that But it's
comforting to know there are
u nderstudies who wouldn't be
a disgrace if pushed into play-
'And whatever became of
The entire story Saturday
night wasn't about Matt Jones
and the long passes; What
about Maurice Drew, also
known as Maurice Jones-Drew?
He made a dandy reception on
a Garrard pass and made his;,
Miami chasers look like turtles
trying to catch the hare, charg-
ing those 55 yards for a score.
They couldn't even catch the
hyphen in his name, much less
Jones-Drew stands to getjust
as much attention and praise
as expected when he was draft-
ed. He carried for 16 yards in
'four trips and returned a kick-
off for 20 yards. Even his quote
was colorful; -
"I don't have to worn' about
the coach behind me telling
me to move left or right," he
said. "I'm just out there doing
what I want to do."
If he keeps that up, the
coaches won't bother him.
It must have influenced Chad
Owens, the other 5-foot, 7-inch
receiver who scored on a 62-
I yarder from Garrard. Put them
together and Drew and Owens
could pass for bookends.
The .lags got lucky in Miami.
This week the defense must
also show up.

Summer Beach Run kicks
offJax Grand Prix season
Fri':co iu Eujnmi-
At the 11th annual Iron Woman Tennis Championships, Hop Hartman and Sharon Long,
right, defeated Cindy Weber and Danni Norwood in the final.
H ow many of these
questions can you get
right? Most of our local
races are more than just a lit-
tle warm, but which one is
HOT? What is our oldest local
race? In which race do turtles
It's a hot one all right, the
Triathlon. The Carrabba's
Summer Beach Run celebrates.
its 41st running on August
26th, the oldest race in
Florida. And a new event to
help preserve North Florida's
sea turtles, the Turtle Trot,
takes place on Labor Day.
But first a history lesson.
The year was 1965. Lyndon
B. Johnson was president of
the U.S. The Vietnam War
was gaining momentum but
wouldn't hit full stride until a
few ears later. The Beatles, a
band from Liverpool,
England, were setting the
world on fire. Every kid had
to have a guitar and some
long hair. Civil rights and
women's rights were the
issues of the day. Martin
Luther King, Jr. and Robert F.
Kennedy were still alive and
making their voices heard.
Retrospectively, we know
now, it was the calm before
the storm. For not long after-
ward, America would never be
In the summer of '65 a
group of largely high school
runners assembled along
Seminole Beach for a five-
mile race organized by a few
Jacksonville area high school
cross-country coaches: Larry
Monts, Chuck McPhilomy
and Ron Popell.
The race was born out of a
combination of financial need
and common sense. The three
coaches wanted a bit of a pre-
season tune-up prior to the
prep cross-country season and
had grown tired of the long,
expensive trip to South
Florida to find a race. The
obvious occurred to them:
W\hy travel to a race when we
could create our own?
So it was that the first
Beach Run was born.
The first Beach Runs floated
around under different man-
agement until in 1976 a new
organization, the Jacksonville
Track Club, took control of
the event. Not long after-
wards the race saw some very
impressive attendance num-
Originally the race would
start at one or two o'clock in
the afternoon, the hottest
part of a sweltering August
day. No one ever seemed to
mind the hellish conditions;
it was considered part of the
Burning sun, melting heat,
and stifling humidity: all just
part and parcel of running
the illustrious, highly compet-
itive Beach Run.
In those days the race was a
straight shot: Five miles from
Hanna Park in Seminole
Beach south to the Lifeguard
Tower in Jacksonville Beach.
Despite the conditions it was
rather nice. The beach was
full of people urging the
intrepid runners on. It had an
almost carnival-like atmos-
phere. And in five miles you
got to see a lot of beach.
Today's Beach Run does its
best to avoid those dreadful
conditions. This year's race
will be run at the amiable
time of 6 p.m. The course is
out-and-back from the
Lifeguard Tower in
In the "old days" you
would have to take a shuttle
bus back to your car left in
Hanna Park. Now you have
your car close by and you can
stick around for a party the
likes of which never existed
in the past.
The sponsor, Carrabba's
Italian Grill, will provide deli-
clods f ee food ah8a iin-.
Before the awards presenta-
tion begins you can also
enjoy live music. No doubt -
about it, the Beach Run post-

This classic, historic 5-mile
race takes place on Saturday,

about an Olympic distance
triathlon the next day at 7:30
a.m.? Just as in the Olympics
the race has a swim of 1.5
kilometers, a 40K cycle ride
and a 10K run.
Taking place for the fourth
time, the Hammerhead's HOT
race is located at Camp
Blanding (about 30 miles
southwest of Jacksonville).
The bike and foot race will
take place in Camp Blanding
and the swim portion of the
race will be in the tranquil
waters of Kingsley Lake.
Triathletes do not miss this
race. And if you delay you
just might. There is a 300-per-
son cut-off and no day-of-race
registration, so enter now.

is looking for volunteers. Log

The triathlon is growing
like a weed. Just look at our
area; we have gone from three
annual events to seven: the
three Beaches Fine Arts Sprint
races, the thiee on Fort
George Island and the HQT
race. More than double the
races in just the last few years.
And lastly, let's not forget
the turtles. The Turtle Trot
takes places on Labor Day,
September 2nd, at Fort Clinch
State Park in Fernandina
Beach. Five K and 10K
run/walks will begin at 8:30
a.m. and two fun-runs for
kids, a half-mile and a one-
riile, start at 9:45 a.m. Check
