Proposed skate park could axe trees

Beach resident Bryan Barker
(No. 4) recalls his 16-year
NFL career. See page B-1.

Plans to construct a skate-
board park as part of the final
improvements at South
Beach Park have Jackshnville
Beach officials seeing green.
Mayor Fland Sharp Friday
said he was concerned about
the number of pine trees that
would need to be removed to
accommodate a concrete
skating area in the northwest
corner of the park.
"I've got a big problem
with taking out these trees,"
he said. "A park needs trees
and we are already a little
short here."
The cluster of mature pine
trees several feet high is
among the last natural spaces
remaining at the 10.5-acre
South Beach Park which used

Gary Meadors points to land dedicated to a multi-purpose field.'

to be a heavily wooded parcel
prior to the construction of
Sunshine Park playground.
Grounds Maintenance
Director Gary Meadors said

once the final phase of con-
struction is complete, the
area will be landscaped and
the trees mitigated for the
project will be replanted.

"We will all be dead before
they reach this size again,"
Sharp said. "We won't be
here to enjoy them."
Sharp suggested minimiz-
ing the size of the skateboard
park or relocating it to anoth-
er area that would not
require the loss so many
Meadors said the pre-fabri-
cated concrete that will be
used to complete the 8,000 to
10,000-square-foot skate-
board area makes it difficult
to resize.
Spohn Ranch Inc. a
California firm that special-
izes in skateboard park con-
struction was selected to
complete the design using
pre-cast features molded and
poured by the manufacturer
then transported to the site.

"This method provides
improved structural strength
of the concrete especially on
the face and edges of the fea-
tures where the majority of
the interaction of skateboard
and concrete is done by the
skaters," Meadors said in his
staff recommendation.
A five-person committee
reviewed the proposal sub-
mitted by Spohn Ranch and
two other candidates to build
the park.
The city's Community
Redevelopment Agency
approved a construction
budget of $375,000 for this
project in January.
The City Council last
month authorized the design

Salvation Army picks them up," said camp coordinator Robbie Knieberg. "I'm a teacher. I believe that school supplies
important. You can't learn don't have the right tools."

B.E.A.M. set for one day 'shopping trip'

to get Beaches students ready for school

At 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug.
11, the 14th annual Back to
School with B.E.A.M. event will
offer a one-day shopping trip
for Beaches students who need
help to get ready for the
upcoming school year.
B.E.A.M. (Beaches
Emergency Assistance
Ministry) calls its Back to
School project a "Backyard
Mission Trip."
So often, groups think they
need to go to another country
or travel on an airplane to do a
mission trip, said Cynthia
Funkhouser, executive director
of B.E.A.M.
There are people in need
right here at the Beaches, she
Last year, clothing and
school supplies were distrib-
uted to more than 825 children
by B.E.A.M.
According to B.E.A.M., 2006
statistics indicate that there are
close to 2,000 Beaches-area
children living in households
with an annual income below
$15,000. -

expect this year," said

Children with limited or
no access to dental care are
able to have their teeth
cleaned before the begin-
ning of the school year, said
event organizer
Those in need of more
extensive dental care are also
referred to another facility
for services which are paid
for by B.E.A.M., she said.
This is the "only program
of its kind in Duval County,"
according to B.E.A.M. offi-
cials. B.E.A.M. has provided
Beaches area children with
1,070 preventative dental
appointments and 540
restorative appointments
since 1999.

In the past 13 years, Back to

School with B.E.A.M. has
helped more than 10,000 chil-
dren, she said.
These students received a
total of over 90,000 articles of
clothing. In addition BEAM
collected and spent more than
$200,000 on beaches children
to help them get ready for a
new school year.
There are a variety of ways
members of the community
can help, said Karen Wolfson,
organizer of Back to School
with B.E.A.M.
Volunteers are needed to

plies at Beach United

City hall

sale put

on hold

The proposal to sell the
Neptune Beach City Hall
building may be put on hold
until staff can find a less cost-
ly appraiser.
City Manager Jim Jarboe
explained at a meeting
Monday. that an appraisal
would cost approximately
$6,500 more than the city
can afford to spend.
Councilor Eric Pardee previ-
ously made the suggestion to
sell the building in" order to
generate revenue without cut-
ting services.
The Council reached a con-
sensus at the'last workshop
meeting for staff to research
the feasibility of selling the
building starting with an
Jarboe said that an appraisal
usually costs between $400
and $500, but because this is a
IUCKADAMS commercial appraisal it is
needy more expensive.

'Wada' concept: Scientists take aim at genetic doping

Gene doping has the poten-

before the practice enters the
In the wake of recent Tour de
France drug violations -- and
with the 2008 Olympics loom-
ing -- the need to stay ahead of
the game has never been more
That's why the Montreal-
based World Anti-Doping
Agency, or WADA, charged
with monitoring the conduct of

athletes, is working with inves-
tigators around the globe to
develop a test that would bust
competitors for injecting them-
selves with genetic material
capable of enhancing muscle
mass or heightening
"If an athlete injects himself
in the muscle with DNA, would
we be able to detect that?"
asked one of France's leading
gene therapy researchers, Dr.
Philippe Moullier, an adjunct
professor of microbiology and
molecular genetics at UF and
director of the Gene Therapy
Laboratory at the Universite de
Nantes in France.
Right now the answer is no,
he said. But the UF scientists are
among several groups collabo-
rating with national and global

anti-doping organizations to
develop a test that could detect
evidence of "doped" DNA.
"WADA has had a research
program in place for some years
now, to try to develop tests for
gene-based doping," said Dr.
Theodore Friedmann, head of
the agency's panel on genetic
doping and director of the gene
therapy program at the
University of California, San
It sounds futuristic, but
experts say it's only a matter of
Unscrupulous athletes began
showing an interest in gene
doping in 2004, when the first
reports of muscle-boosting
therapies in mice were pub-
lished by University of
Pennsylvania researchers.

Over 200 volunteers are need-
ed and several groups within
the community are already pre-
pared to help, said Wolfson.
Church groups, local busi-
nesses, dentists, Realtors,
Kiwanis and Rotary chapters,
and senior citizen groups are
some of those volunteering.
They are collecting school
supplies and character back-
packs, putting together special
packets for pre-schoolers, and
offering discounts for supplies
B.E.A.M. purchases for the stu-
dents, said Wolfson.
"People give what they can

,Volunteers who help on the
day of the event may be asked
to assist "shoppers," carry bags
of clothing to cars or the bus
stop, personalize pen cil boxes,
or distribute water and snow
cones to the families waiting in
line, she said.
New volunteers are always
welcome. Many of those who

help have been doing so for
years including some of the
"shoppers" and their families.

already "shopped" may also
return at this time to select
additional items, said Wolfson.
All of the funds donated for
Back to School with B.E.A.M.
are used to benefit the children,
she said.
Backpacks are purchased in
bulk at a discount as well as
new underwear and other
needed items.
"The whole point is for the
child to be honored and lifted

Neptune: No conclusions reached

Continued from A-1

City Hall is worth approxi-
mately $1 million, according
to the property appraiser's
office, Jarboe said, but added
that staff thinks the building
may be worth even more.
Pardee clarified his propos-
al at Monday's meeting say-
ing that at least $1 million
from the proposed sale
could be invested in an
account "earmarked solely
for gaining interest that will
be used for reduction of
property tax millage rate for
all Neptune Beach property

He further suggested that
the money could only be
spent in an emergency and
with a super majority vote -
and after a five to 10 year
period, the Council could
revisit its use.
Pardee's original proposal
also included moving staff
which occupy the building to
other city buildings, such as.
the Public Works building.
"We need a City Hall, not a
Taj Mahal," he said.
Resident Michael Aston
spoke in opposition of the
idea at the meeting and
instead suggested that an
increase of $1.50 per year on

citizens' property taxes
would produce the same
"What we need around
here is clear vision arid
sound thinking, not panic
and rash judgment," he said.
The Council did not reach
any conclusions about
whether or not to proceed
with the idea, but said that
discussions could continue
in a workshop meeting.
Jarboe said that the city
will not get an appraisal on
City Hall unless they can
find someone to do it for a
more reasonable price.

The Leader's Opinion

Help BEAM outfit

students for school

Hundreds of needy Beaches children will get
school supplies and clothes Saturday courtesy of
a long-standing community program that allows
neighbors to help neighbors.
The 14th Annual Back to School with B.E.A.M. will be
held Saturday morning and the event is open to any
Beaches students who need help getting ready for the
school year that starts later this month.
Last year, more than 800 children benefitted from the
B.E.A.M. Back to School program and expectations are
high for a crowd this year.
Getting children who live at the Beaches ready to go
back to school is a great cause and worthy of everyone's
support. A child who is well prepared for school can
spend his or her time focusing on the academic rigors of
school and not worrying over a lack of clothing or sup-
plies. Some families can use a helping hand.
So clean out your closets and take the used clothes that
are still in, good condition to a B.E.A.M. collection site.
Contact the B.E.A.M. office at 241-7437 or event organ-
izer Karen Wolfson at 246-0847 for information about
donating. Locations vary depending on the date of dona-
In addition, volunteers are needed to sort clothing and
school supplies at Beach United Methodist Church on
Friday. Volunteers are also needed at Saturday's give-away.
Call the same numbers above if you are interested in
volunteering. Back to School with B.E.A.M. will be open
from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Beach United Methodist
Church's Family Life Center at 7th Avenue North and 3rd
It's an annual program of caring and sharing that helps
all involved -don't miss the opportunity to make a dif-

Craft commission districts wisely

To the editor:
It looks as if the Atlantic
Beach Commission has taken
to heart the report by the cit-
izens committee on represen-
tation, judging by
Commissioners' .comments
during the first reading of the
measure that will create a res-
idency requirement for each
of the four Commission seats.
It also is right and proper,
that this innovation, which
alters the charter, be present-
ed to the voters for a final
vote. :
Should the voters approve
the measure in early October,
then implementation of the
residency districts will remain
to be determined by a new
Commission. It's worthwhile
to be aware of the basics of
electoral districting, particu-
larly since gerrymandering
may come into play.,
By custom and law each dis-
trict must be approximately
the same size as others; the
individual district should be

compact and contiguous. Thi
means, for Atlantic Beach
that Marsh Oaks and Donner
which are west of Maypor
Rd. and currently compris
the bulk of voting district 13
S, ought to remain in one dis
However, there is a concern
of interests between Donne
and Jordan that require these
neighborhoods on either sid
of Mayport Rd. to be part o
the same district along wit]
Marsh Oaks, rather that
retaining the present bound
aries of 13-S that incorporate
Marsh Oaks, Donner an
southwest Royal Palms.
With this exception, th
present elections precinct
can remain essentially stati
until the 2010 Census, whici
will minimize further th
chances of gerrymanderin;
for the 2009 elections.

-WIN % --- coming up

., t .,i;. i 'u.." at 8, but

"__ -'__ _ __. '____ __ first here's

I recall the grass lasses UncleHoyle

It's a new wrinkle with no
wrinkles: a bikini-clad lass
mowing the grass.
Reportedly, a lawn-care com-
pany in Memphis, Tennessee,
has such an arrangement,
and business is booming,
along with ogling. Obviously,
this is a vast improvement
over the usual scene when
men do the yard work.
In fact, I and many (most?)
guys who cut their own
greensward will wear their
most decrepit duds. For sure,
such outfits wouldn't be pic-
tured in Esquire magazine as
attire to which one aspires.
is While I certainly never look
i, as though I just stepped out
r, of a bandbox when doing the
:t seemingly inescapable land-
e scaping, I'm convinced that
3- my late father-in-law was the
- model for crummy chore
clothing. His pants and shirt
rt would have been appropriate
:r for visiting a hobo jungle,
e. and .instead of a belt, he .
e would have on---(drumroll)---
)f a piece of rope!
h But I "digrass." Although I
n haven't heard of any lawn-
I- care firms here that have
e girls in scantinis manning




mowers, we've had at least
one unique approach to
female employment. If mem-
ory serves (mine and others'),
there once was a fast-food
operation on Third Street in
Jax Beach called Penney's
Drive-In. The cars would park
in individual "slots," each
equipped with a telephone
on which the customer could
transmit a food order to the
restaurant. "
When the grub was ready,
it would be brought to the
vehicle by a carhop on roller
skates. Bill's Broiler allegedly

also had a somewhat similar
set-up. The servers could
have been termed "waitresses
on wheels." By the way, this
procedure is still followed,
basically, at the Sonic drive-
ins now. The young ladies
are definitely not combative
roller derby types. They seem
like good skates.
I believe I have another,
exceptionally economical,
'idea for getting lawn mainte-
nance done. We could adver-
tise for pothead hippies and
tell them they could smoke
all the grass they cut---no,
charge. When the cuttings
were gone, possibly the yard
would be crowded with too-
late tea men asking, "Hey,
man, you got mo' to mow?"
Okay, so it's not that kind
of grass. Another option is
getting goats. They could
keep the turf cropped and we
wouldn't have to pay them,
either. In fact, they would
fertilize, the lawn as wel. ...
Now I realize that these ani-
mais wolid niot be- s greatt '"
looking (or smell as good) as
girls in bikinis. Nevertheless,
if they were.nanny goats,
you---got milk!

More letters to the editor:

Thoughtful neighbors make life very nice

To the editor:
As a senior citizen who likes
to look .on Sthe bright side,
sometimes it seems like the
bad news out there crowds out
some wonderful stories that go
unreported--like my incredible
neighbors, who perform
countless acts of kindness for
me and my 92-year-old hus-
band and never ask for thanks.

In fact, most of the time, we
wake up in the morning to
find that one of our neighbors
has mowed the ,lawn, or
trimmed the trees, and we are
never quite sure who has
labored for us since no one
wants any recognition or
thanks. These are just unbe-
lievably good people who live
by the Golden Rule.

I wanted to take this oppor-
tunity to thank my Tenth
Avenue neighbors for their
kind hearts, and remind every-
one out there that the world is
full of good people who may
never get any "press" but make
a difference every day.

So-called 'Hometown Democracy' is bad for all

To the editor:
If the so-called "Hometown
Democracy" idea had been law
during the 2006 election cycle,
the proposed constitutional
amendment would have ren-
dered Floridians vulnerable to
the whims of our State's most
extreme special interests. That's
why last month we voted
unanimously on the
Casselberry City Commission
to adopt a resolution urging
citizens to vote "no" should the
amendment appear on the Fall
2008 ballot.
After taking office a year ago,
my first commitment to
Casselberry was to clean up our
streets and close down the

pornography venues "adult
entertainment outlets" -that
once preyed upon our small
town. Today, we have success-
fully confronted and restricted
Casselberry's once-formidable
pornography sector. But I
worry if Hometown
Democracy becomes law,
wealthy smut-peddlers could
bankroll campaigns to, defeat
citizen-supported land use plan
changes designed to restrict
their activities. They need that
advantage because we are win-
Given what Hometown
Democracy would provide to
this particular industry, I am
not surprised one of its top

campaign donors is Joseph
Redner, owner of the Mons
Venus strip club in Tampa and
other notorious businesses. He
and his pornographer col-
leagues would benefit greatly
from the amendment, so Mr.
Redner contributed $25,000 to
their cause. M6re dirty money
will surely follow his lead.
I urge voters across Florida to
see Hometown Democracy for
what it really is: bad for home-
towns, and worse for democra-

just ran across a video
one of my cousin's made
of me, at the last
Dempsey Family reunion in
May. I'm discussing, and
standing over, what my
nieces on the West Side
fondly call "Uncle Hoyle's
Ponte Vedra Meatloaf."
While I had prepared this
dish many times for my wife
Dianne's family in
Jacksonville, this was the
first time for my relatives at
my Mama's in Marietta, GA.
Lights, action, camera!
"And this is the final, touch
to my signature contribution
to this year's reunion. I'm .
mixing a good quality salsa
with a tablespoon of mayon-
naise. I'll throw in a dash of
salt, fresh ground pepper, a
touch of garlic and a hand-
full of sauteed Vidalia
Onions. Let's top the almost
done meatloaf and cook it at
375 for ten more minutes!
Now the first one I cooked
has. set for five minutes and
is ready to tr\."
S1My) nephew rlhett steps up
to the'Counter. "Wow Uncle
Hoyle, this is just like on the
Food Network! Just a small
piece, MMM, this is great, let
me have a little more.
When's the other one gonna
be ready? This is really
Other nephews, nieces and
cousins gathered around.
There were oohs and aahs.
Even my Aunt Nonie liked
As I watched the video I
thought, "If it's like the Food
Network, how come nobody
clapped when I said garlic?"
But you know what,
maybe there was a reason
that my cousin Donna kept
the camera on me for ten
minutes, as I cooked the
world's moistest, most fla-
vorful meatloaf. That DVD
she made me, might just
have audition tape written
all over it! I can just see the
programming meeting going
on at the Food Network!
"I'm telling you Bernie, we
need to schedule Boy Meets
Grill with Bobby Flay in that
time slot!"
."Jack, look at me sweet-
heart, that's got Diners,
Drive Ins and Dives written
all over it. When you do a
lead in to a new Paula Deen
or Emeril, it's gotta be right!
What do you think Alison?"
"I think you need to watch
this audition tape called
Uncle Hoyle's Family Food
Hour!" CLICK!
"Bernie this is the next big
thing! Alison this is your
discovery and I won't forget
it! I love a guy who sends
an audition tape using
ground beef. Everybody else
cooks with lobster, fillet
mignon and expensive ingre-
dients. This guy uses ham-
burger and mayonnaise!
Forget Rachael Ray's $40.00
a day, we'll do Uncle Hoyle's
$40.00 a week!"
Bernie, Jack and Allison
won't be getting off that
cheap. It's not called Ponte
Vedra Meatloaf for nothing.
I use only Black Angus
ground sirloin baby! And
Hellmann's Real
Mayonnaise! Wonder when
I'll be hearing back from
them? They probably don't
want to look too anxious.
Maybe I'll send them a pic-
ture of my Black Angus
Sirloin Helper. I think I'll
ask my wife to call me Iron
Chef, so I can get used to
the way it sounds! Hey,

candy, fruit and toys for hun-
dreds of kids in Mayport, the
mobile home parks on A1A
north of Mayport Road, and from.
the Naval Base to Ms. Shelley's
kids at Mayport and Atlantic

ble through donations from mer-
chants and yard sales Grim con-
ducted year-round to insure
enough for the kids at Christmas.

Grim wore many hats. He had
been a cook, truck driver and
owner of Crazy Billy's Classic
Mustangs, and worked security

the annual parade at Christmas.
Failing health due to diabetes
failed to dampen his spirits. Grim

his dear friends, Ron and Willa
Cohoon, who took care of him.
They watched every day when he
would go outside to give the
native kids rides on his motorized
wheelchair while the neighbor's

Femandina pickled shrimp salad is co0

Are you in a pickle over
what to fix for dinner
on these sultry sum-
mer days?
Well, pick Florida shrimp
for a "get out of the kitchen
quick" crowd-pleaser.
Try a cool summer
favorite, Fernandina Pickled
Shrimp Salad, made with
succulent, sweet wild-caught
white or brown shrimp.
These shrimp.are plentiful
rnow since their harvest sea-
'n, on Florida's northeast
Atlantic coast opened in
June. From Mayport to
Melbourne, shrimp boats are
bringing their white and
brown treasure to the mar-
kets and restaurants nearest

Florida white shrimp is a
popular delicacy beloved by
all chefs, locals and visitors
alike. It has a sweet taste,
firm bite and a distinctive
ocean flavor that makes it
any shrimp'lover's favorite.
Although classified as
white, this shrimp's shell is
actually green-gray or blue-
gray in color when raw but
"pinks up" when cooked.
Brown shrimp, named for its
reddish-brown shell, has a
firmer meat texture and a
stronger flavor than the
white shrimp due to higher
iodine content.
It is often used in spicy
gumbos and remoulades
where its flavor can hold its
own with the seasonings.
Shrimp is harvested year-

round off Florida's Atlantic
and Gulf coasts but the high-
est yield for brown shrimp is
June through August while
the highest yield for white
shrimp is October through
Shrimp is the most popu-
lar seafood in the United
States, so it is good to know
that it is a naturally renew-
able and sustainable
It is also an excellent
source of high-quality pro-
tein naturally low in fat, car-
bohydrates and calories mak-
ing it an ideal choice for a
healthy lifestyle.
Four ounces (114g) of raw,
edible Florida shrimp has
only 120 calories, 15 calories

Wright is new leader at

historic AB Elementary

Kim Wright has taken
the reins of historic
Atlantic Beach
Elementary, the pink-col-
ored, Art Deco-style grade
school on Sherry Drive that
dates to 1939.
Wright, who replaces the
retired Ali Register, comes to
Atlantic Beach from Loretto
Elementary in Mandarin,
where she was vice principal
for four years.
Register retired in May
after 35 years in education.
This will be Wright's first
tour of duty as a principal.
Prior to Loretto, she was
an assistant principal at
Carter G. Woodson on the
northside of Jacksonville.
Prior to that, Wright was a
social studies teacher for
grades 9-12 at Jacksonville's
Lee High, her alma mater.
"I was teaching at home. It
was a good feeling to work
alongside people who taught
me," said Wright in an inter-
view last week.
"They were.still there, so
they provided that in-house
support. They made the tran-
'sition as a new teacher much
Albeit only there for a
short time, Wright actually
began her teaching career in
1993 at Mayport Middle
Wright, who was born and
raised in Jacksonville, is a
graduate of Florida A&M
University in Tallahassee.
She and Stephanie
Manabat, the new principal
at Neptune Beach
Elementary, took some class-

Wright has established
"Power of Team" as Atlantic

She has given all of her
teachers a book, "Our
Iceberg Is Melting," by John
Kotter, that talks about
"We talk about this team-
work coming together," said
Wright, "since we have new
members on staff, of course,
a new leader, for the good of
the students.
"We're focusing on a lot of
team building, on activities,
to better enhance the learn-
ing of our students."
As all new principals do,
Wright faces challenges as
she takes over at Atlantic
Beach Elementary, which was
built before World War II
and, as such, is one of the
oldest schools at the
"I think learning the new
culture of the school, being
in a new environment.and
getting to know the stu-
dents, the parents and what
the individual needs are of
the people who we're serving
will be the biggest chal-
lenge," she said.
. Wright has two support
grounds, the school's PTA
and a group called Friends of
Atlantic Beach, to work with.
"They help with fundrais-
ing," she said of the Friends.
"They provide things for
the school that are budgetary
problems; I guess, for us.
Like they put in a new track
last year. They did a
fundraiser for that.

Studio 1014's 20-member dance team, provides students with a
if dance training and the opportunity to compete and perform in
ty. Pictured above is Studio 1014's Dance Elite, which this year
donors in national competitions held in Orlando and Chicago.
Studio 1014's professional instructors care about each stu-
dent. "We treat each child as our own and equally," Cathy
says. "We encourage the natural talents and strengths of each
child based on his or her individual path, and we don't force
them. Whether they want to dance 45 minutes a week or 45
hours a week, they're welcome here."
Studio 1014's dance facility has been totally remodeled with
a cheerful and inviting look. In addition to two ballrooms, a
homework room and play area are available as well as a par-
ents' viewing window.
The littlest dancers enjoy their own special area with a
"Pretty Princess/Handsome Prince" theme. At Studio 1014,
classes for preschool-aged children offer younger kids the
opportunity to begin their dance experience in a fun-filled
atmosphere. These classes feature instruction in ballet com-
bined with tap and creative movement.
Dance Elite, Studio 1014's dance team, provides students
with an even higher level of dance training and the opportu-
nitv to compete and perform in the community and through-
out the nation. This year team members participated in region-
al and national-level dance competitions in Orlando and
Chicago and just yesterday returned from Los Angeles, where
they studied with some of the nation's best dance masters.
"What's amazing is our competitors are 12-year olds!" Catlih
said. "It's very exciting! I never would have thought that our
team would reach this level in such a short period of time -
in less than five \ears."
But at Studio 1014, dance is much more than competing.
For students of all ages, dance instruction leads to an improve-
ment in coordination, sense of rhythm, self-esteem and sell-
discipline, Cathy says.
"All dancers benefit from and enjoy the opportunity to partic-
ipate in an activity that promotes self-esteem and personal
accomplishment," she said. "Our adult students enjoy evening tap and hip-hop, and find dance a great way to unwind
after a long day and bum some calories at the same time.'
Studio 1014 has some new events to add even more fun to this
fall's dance calendar.'"We're doing a holiday show, which will ben-
efit B.E.A.M. IBeaches Emergency Assistance Mirustrs, Inc.l," Cathly
said, "and we're also doing a golf tournament that will benefit the
Ronald McDonald House." The events are open to the public
Studio 1014 can accommodate new students in all disci-
plines, and now is a great time to begin. Classes start Aug. 13.
In-studio registration is 3 to 8 p.m. Aug. 10 and 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. Aug. 11. For more information, call Cathy at 249-6090 or

Cooney wins another Meninak marathon

Hartje first

in Hammer-

Head swim

Calm seas and good weather
greeted swimmers last Saturday
as both the 74th annual
Meninak Ocean Marathon and
the second annual Hammer-
Head Ocean Marathon each took
place at Jacksonville Beach.
Cleve Cooney won his third
consecutive Meninak Marathon,
a lifeguards-only, 3.2-mile race
that starts at the Ponte Vedra Inn
and Club and ends in from of the
Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard
Station, in typical dominant fash-
ion. Cooney emerged from the
water minutes before the next
swimmer came up. The win was
the ninth victory in the race for
Cooney, who tied the record for
most swims with this year's start.
Cooney was happy with the
conditions the Atlantic Ocean
offered him.
"It was certainly calm, real
smooth and there was no cur-
rent," Cooney said. "There was a
little bit of waves, but they
weren't a bother. We've had a
couple of races like this in the
past. It's always nice to get one
like this. Plus, I didn't run into
anything except a little seaweed

While Cooney took first over-
all in the race, it was Life Flight

crew member Bill Horn who
.received the most welcoming
Applause as he crossed the finish
line. Horn, a 20-year veteran in

the swim, also swam in the 1.5-
mile HammerHead Marathon
earlier in the day.
Clearly exhausted upon fin-,
ishing the lifeguard swim, Horn
was excited to place third overall
in both events.
"I could've done the 2.5-mile
race (the longer of the two

Hammer -
Head events)
if time permit-
ted," Horn
said. "But I
doubt I
placed third in
this one.

races are a week apart, but today
they happened to fall on the
same day."
According to Horn, there are
typically a few swimmers who
participate in both races. Due to
the same-day starts, the time of
the lifeguard swim was pushed
back an hour to allow those
wanting to swim both events a
chance to finish and still make
the start of the next race.
Also, there was the possibility
of the top lifeguard swimmers

crossed the fin-
ish line first in
the 1.5-mile
event. The 15-
year-old was
one of the few
swimmers who
actually con-
sidered the
ocean to be a
tad choppy.
"The seas
were rough, so
you really
couldn't see
the buoy at the
end," Hartje
said. "All you
could do to

relate to where you were was to
look at the pier, see how deep
you were. Other than that, the
current was with us, so it was a
pretty smooth swim."
The race was Hartje's second
open-water swim, the first com-
ing in Ft. Meyers in the Gulf of
Mexic6, where he finished
fourth overall in his age group.
Nease High School's Jamie
Koch finished first overall in the
women's division in the 1.5-mile
swim. Koch was forced to do the
1.5 miler only because she had

to work a shift as a lifeguard at
the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club.
"It wasn't that bad because I
have to do these every day at
work," Koch said. "The water
was really calm today, though."
Koch swims for the Episcopal
High School team.
Rounding out the top finish-
ers were 16-year-old Kyle
McVeigh, overall winner of the
2.5-mile swim and Melissa
Steele, 17, who took first in the
women's in the same event.
"The start was a little rough
because I got tumbled," Steele
said. "Three people took off and
I tried to catch them. I wound
up swimming by myself."
Swimming in the ocean can
prove to be different for those
who typically swim in a pool.
"It was good, though I've
never done this type of swim
before, so I'm excited about the
finish," McVeigh said. "I always
swam in a pool so I've never
done one of these real long open
water races. The water was real-
ly flat all the way across. It was
nice though, the salt water really
lifts you up."
For Hartje, the transition from
pool to ocean wasn't a tough
one and he plans to continue
both in the future. "It's a lot dif-
ferent from swimming in the
pool, which is what I normally
do," Hartje said. "It was good to
get the experience and change
things up a little. I'm going to do
this again. This has really upped
my confidence."

Panthers football

practices begin


As the sun rose Monday
morning, Nease High football
players were already sweating
through the first official day of
preseason practice.
Drills got underway at around
7 a.m. and lasted until about
9:45 a.m. The first few days of
practice will see plenty of work
on offensive, defensive and spe-
cial teams schemes, but players
won't begin hitting until they
don pads for Thursday morn-
ing's session.
"It's just good to be out here,"

said Panthers head coach Craig
Howard. "The first day of prac-
tice always brings excitement
and enthusiasm."
Nease, which won the Class
4A state title in 2005 and fell to
Tampa Plant in the champi-
onship game last season, begins
the 2007 campaign with three
straight road games. The first is
Aug. 31 at North Marion High,
the following week the Panthers
are at Martin County High in
Stuart, and Sept. 14 includes a
trip to Madison County High.
Each of those games is slated
for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

From walk-on to Al-Pro, Barker's 16-year odyssey


B ryan Barker hadn't kicked a football in six
weeks when he got the call in October
The St. Louis Rams wanted to know if Barker, a
15-year NFL veteran and the Jacksonville Jaguars
inaugural punter, was available for a tryout.
As he hung up the phone in his Atlantic Beach
home, Barker wondered if he had one more sea-
son left in the tank.
"I told my wife to meet me at Fletcher High
with a bag of footballs and my cleats," Barker
recalled last week.
"I practiced for about 45 minutes and was on a
plane to St. Louis the following day."
Such is the nomadic life of an NFL punter.
Barker spent 11 weeks with the Rams in 2005,
averaging 42.7 yards per kick. When he signed a
free agent contract with St. Louis on Oct. 11,
2005, the 41-year-old Atlantic Beach resident
became the fourth oldest punter in NFL history,
according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Now officially retired from pro football (he put
in his paperwork this past January), Barker, 43,
reflected on his journey from college walk-on to
Pro Bowl punter as NFL training camps opened
last month.

Mackey Award winner
This summer marks a milestone of sorts for
Barker, a Jacksonville Beach native who was born
at Beaches Hospital (now Baptist Medical Center
Beaches) in June 1964, while his father was sta-
tioned on a Navy destroyer based at Mayport.
"This is the first summer since 1995 that I have
not gone to Fletcher to practice punting," Barker
"Last year was the first time I went an entire
season without playing."
Barker played or practiced with nine different
NFL teams, beginning with the Denver Broncos,
who signed him as an undrafted free agent in
During his six seasons with the Jaguars (1995-
2000), Barker was voted to the Pro Bowl once
(1997) and was designated a first alternate in
A three-time Mackey Award winner for best net
punting average in either conference, Barker was
named the AFC's special teams player of the week
five times during his career, which began inauspi-
ciously when he was not selected in the 1986 NFL
A 1986 graduate of Santa Clara University,
Barker spent a year playing semi-pro football in
1987. From 1988 to 1990, he was cut by three dif-
ferent NFL teams in training camp.
Despite those setbacks, Barker never gave up on
his dream to play pro football. When he finally

broke into the league in 1990 as a 26-year-old
rookie with the Kansas City Chiefs, he was deter-
mined to stay for the long haul.
"I always had a good work ethic," said Barker,
who played all or part of 16 consecutive NFL sea-
"I could always outkick people in terms of reps.
When I got to Kansas City, I was in awe of how
hard [placekicker] Nick Lowery trained. I adopted
his philosophy."
Lowery, a Hall of Fame nominee in 2004, is con-
sidered the most accurate kicker in NFL history.
In his day, Barker was considered one of the
NFL's most consistent and durable punters.

A situational position
During his first six seasons in the league,
Barker's net punting average improved each year.
He led the NFL with a net punting average of
38.6 yards per kick in 1995, becoming the first
Jaguar to lead the league in a statistical category.
He still owns 14 Jaguars records, including best
gross punting average (45 yards) and best net aver-
age (37.2).
In 16 NFL seasons, he had only two of his punts
"There are a lot of variables in punting, but the
most important thing is to get the ball off quick,"
explained Barker, who never had a punt blocked

Excitement in Jaguars

camp seems genuine

Only a few more shop-
ping days 'til the
Jacksonville Jaguars
meet the Miami Dolphins in
their first supreme test of the
"new look" brought in by Dirk
Koetter, who has taken over as
offensive coordinator.
Head coach Jack Del Rio and
chief of staff James Harris may
not be juggling the roster to
add new names this late, but
who knows? Stranger things
have happened in Jag Town.
Camp results so far have
been as optimistic as owner
Wayne Weaver could hope:
Chief quarterback Byron
Leftwich has not been injured
and chief scatback Fred Taylor
has survived the first weeks of
practice unhurt and as cheery
as a man playing with his own
Taylor looks good. Last week
he held a conference after a
shortened day's drills and was
not only challenging, he was
downright defiant toward
being written off as aging.
"What's age but numbers?"
he said to one reporter. "I
don't pay attention to just
numbers. Regardless of what
the media [has] tried to paint
me out to be, 'fragile,' I was
never that. You could probably
say I was a warrior being that I
continued to fight all the neg-
atives and ups and downs of
my career."
Starting his 10th season
with the Jaguars, Taylor said of
his future, "I'm definitely
going to go after 10,000 yards
faster than anything else since
I've been playing football. I
think it'll be a fun time once it
He doesn't have that far to
go, with 9,513 yards now, and
Taylor is the 21st leading rush-
er in NFL history. Barring
injury, Fred, at 31 years old,
should be a cinch to eclipse
that 10K mark.
The Jaguars need Taylor.
He's the closest hero to Jimmy
Smith the team has left, even
though the youngsters are
coming on (Del Rio hopes)
and Taylor is no longer by



"How good are we gonna
be? Man, we're going to the

Some good kingfish caught off the pier last week

Israel Martinez got plenty of
attention last week when he
brought his 37-pound king
over the rail of the Jacksonville

fish and was his first king.
What a thrill.
Alex and Margaret
Limbaugh caught their limit of
speckled trout on a trip to the

half pounds along with five
small reds.

Burroughs, on the Sharkey's
Den II, fished the 30-foot
slough off Vilano Beach and
caught 85 whiting they chose
to keep and wrestled several
black tips to the side of the
Capt. George Strate, on his
Mayport Princess, put his
anglers over some hot spots
last week. Matt Hamilton led
all anglers on Monday when
he caught a 30 pound snapper.

sea bass and beeliners.
Tuesday was equally as good

trout and a pair of mangrove.
Larry "Fishman" Finch and
George Atelevich teamed up
last week near Blount Island
and caught their limit of
speckled trout to five pounds
along with a dozen red bass
and lacks. All were caught
with live shrimp.
The "Fishman" spent most
of last week, however, in the
surf at Nassau Sound. Using
sandfleas for bait he caught 23

BARKER: Jags original punter a well-traveled veteran

Continued from page B-I

while with the Jaguars.
"But it's a situational posi-
tion. You can't do it yourself. It
doesn't matter how well you
kick it if your teammates don't
cover it."
Barker won two of his three
Mackey awards in Jacksonville,
playing under special teams
coordinator Larry Pasquale, his
position coach at Philadelphia
in 1994.
The '94 season was a break-
out year for Barker, who led the
NFL in average punt return
allowed and the NFC in net
punting average.
In 1997, Barker and former
Jaguars placekicker Mike Hollis
became the fourth kicking tan-
dem to make the Pro Bowl.
Barker said Jacksonville "was
the best move" of his career,
but a lucrative, long-term con-
tract nevef materialized.
In 2001, he signed a four-
year deal with the Washington
Redskins, reuniting him with
former Kansas City head coach
Marty Schottenheimer.
In D.C., as with every other.
stop in his NFL career, Barker
had to beat out all comers for
his starting slot.
Staving off competition and
dealing with injuries were all
part of the game, he said.
"You don't want to give up
your job for a day," added
Barker, who made a team
record 96 consecutive starts as
a Jaguar.
"But over time, you are going
to get blindsided. Everyone
wants to blow up the kicker."

End of the tunnel
Barker dislocated his shoul-
ders, broke ribs and sprained
both his ankles as a pro.
He suffered his worst injury
in 2002 after taking a knee to
face while covering a blocked
kick (not his) in a Thanksgiving

game against the Dallas
The injury, an open nasal
fracture, effectively ended his
second season with the
Redskins. He was placed on the
injured reserve list on
Christmas Eve.
Barker averaged 40.2 yards
per punt the following year,
but was not re-signed for the
2004 season.
Seeing the end of the tunnel,
Barker returned to Atlantic
Beach and continued to stay in
kicking shape, knowing
employment was only a phone
call away.
Stay warm, be ready, is a
kicking specialist's creed.
The phone rang on Aug. 24,
2004. Green Bay was on the
line and, despite drafting a
punter in the third round, was
interested in signing Barker.
At age 40, Barker was long of
tooth, but not short on leg
strength. He beat out rookie
B.J. Sanders for the starting job
and played all 16 games, aver-
aging 40.1 yards per punt.
Barker's versatility he was
both a punter and a holder for
placekicks made him a val-
ued asset on special teams.
And he could tackle.
In 2001 with the Redskins,
Barker, a former free safety in
high school, made a touch-
down-saving stop on Carolina
punt returned Steve Smith, one
the NFL's fastest players.
With the Jaguars in
November 1996, Barker broke
ribs bringing down Baltimore
Ravens returned Jermaine
Lewis. Despite the injury, he
stayed in the game and fin-
ished the season.
Durability was one of
Barker's calling cards.

Monday Night debut
His first game in a Rams uni-
form was Oct. 17. 2005, a
"Monday Night Football"

-encounter with the
Indianapolis Colts at the RCA
During the "Monday Night"
broadcast, ABC's Al Michaels
:told viewers that Barker was
scuba diving in Grand Cayman
the week before the Rams
"Al Michaels asked me, 'How
old are you, really?' Barker
S"I neyer took a snap with the
team before that game. I had a
55-yard punt right out of the
Barker beat out a fifth-round
draft pick for the Rams job, fin-
ishing the year with a 42.7
average on 50 punts. His
longest was a 63-yarder. His net
average that year equaled his
career mark of 37.2 with the
Now a partner in a group
heath insurance firm, Barker
stays connected with Jackson-
ville's NFL franchise as one of 18
Jaguar ambassadors.
His sons, Colin and Trevor,
are running cross country for
Bishop Kenny High this fall.
His daughter, Kilty, is a gym-
Barker's wife, Leah, sells real
estate and is the founder of Let
Us Play sports camps for girls.
Barker said he lives 12 blocks
north of the first house his par-
ents ever rented at the Beaches.
Barker's father was an ensign
and a communications officer
on the destroyer USS Robert K.
Huntington. Barker said the
ship's code name was Jaguar.
When he graduated from
Santa Clara with an economics
degree in 1986, Barker thought
about going into commercial
real estate with his father, or
studying for an MBA.
But the former college walk-
on never took the easy route to
In Barker's bio in the 1996
Jaguars media guide, the book

notes that Barker won the
NFL's net punting titlein 1995
on his final kick of the season.
"The mark of a top punter is
consistency, which he has
demonstrated," the guide says.
"But in Bryan's case, it's
improvement. His net punting
average has improved every
season of his six-year career."
"My plan was to try. and
make it in the NFL," said
Barker, who spent four years
practicing on high school fields
before making a regular-season
NFL roster.
