A problem with transients
in Atlantic Beach has prompt-
ed a commissioner to suggest
that the city consider adopt-
ing a similar attitude to that
of Jacksonville Beach and
work on "cracking down" on
the issue.
Commissioner Sylvia
Simmons said at a meeting
Monday that there have been
several recent incidents
involving transients and that
people are "feeling intimidat-
ed," although she empha-
sized that nobody has been

have become ,afraid to go to
the beach or walk around
their own neighborhoods.
"I want people to be aware
of it," she said.
Simmons said that
Jacksonville Beach is address-
ing the issue and she thinks
that it is something that
should be considered for all
the Beaches.
Jacksonville Beach has held
public forums, police have
enforced trespassing laws and
other measures are being con-
"If you crack down on one
beach, you crack down on
all," she said. "They [tran-
sients] have done something
that they do notoriously:

have increased patrol
efforts closer to the
beach, specifically near
walkovers and dunes and
on the beach proper,
where most of the recent
problems with homeless
people have occurred,
according to Atlantic

Mike Classey.
There has also been

Commissioner Dezmond
Waters agreed with Simmons,
saying that he thinks it's a
good idea for the Beaches to
work together.
Police Chief David
Thompson responded to the
Commission, explaining that
additional officers have been
assigned to certain areas.
Simmons suggested anyone
with additional ideas should
bring them forward.

Renovations to cemetery Ja Beach lowers

Staff Writer
Renovations to a historic
cemetery formerly used for
slave burials in Jacksonville
Beach will include additional
grave space and on site park-
A new sign and wrought
iron archway will welcome
visitors into the Lee Kirkland
Cemetery along Beach
Boulevard at South Penman
Road. The property will be
enclosed by a concrete wall.
City officials and depart-
ment heads reviewed the
cemetery plans Aug. 3 as part
of the city's annual budget
Mayor Fland Sharp praised
the project but expressed con-

cerns about the lack of a rear
fence to shield the view of
garbage dumpsters and gas
tanks located behind the
cemetery property.
"We need a solid fence
there. If you are gong to go
through all of this trouble this
is butt ugly," Sharp said. 'We
don't need to be looking at
tanks and dumpsters and
stuff. Landscaping is not
going to do it."
The improvements were
slated to piggyback on the
realignment of Penman Road.
Both projects are temporarily
on hold pending the installa-
tion of a storm drain in the
right of way on the south side
of Beach Boulevard.

In accordance with state mandates, Jacksonville
Beach will reduce its millage rate but with $327
million in new construction added to the city's
tax rolls, the city will deposit $420,706 more in
real estate taxes next year than it did last year.
According to city staff, the millage rate will
decrease 9 percent from the rolled-back rate. But,
the budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1
also includes 5 percent rate increases for the water
and sewer utility for the next three fiscal year,
2008, 2009 and 2010.
":Even these may not be sufficient if we cannot
find additional state and federal resources to help
fund the new treatment facilities," mandated by
new federal laws limiting nitrogen discharge,
according to city finance officer Harry Royal. So
far, it has been estimated that the new facilities
will cost $20 million.
"It is imperative that we develop a comprehen-
sive long term financial plan to manage the forth-
coming capital expenditures and implement
measures to provide adequate revenues to fund
operations," Royal said of the water and sewer

Police reserve spending will
drop nearly 50 percent to a total of
$27,468. Police department
spokesman Sgt., Tom Bingham said
the funds in that category have
been redistributed to other items as-
the department has consistently
had trouble filling the 15-member
reserve force. Currently there are

only two reserve officers, he said, so
the funds are being used by the
department elsewhere.
The police department has all of
its full-time positions filled current-
ly, Bingham said. Long term, how-
ever, the department has concerns
as there is a nationwide shortage of
qualified applicants for the law
enforcement profession.
Because of the shortage, the
department has expanded its adver-
tisements and searches for qualified
candidates to include the entire
state as well as southern Georgia.
The fire department will see a
slight reduction in expenditures.
The cost of training personnel for

officials explained, and those costs
are not recurring.

Feds: No need to rush storm $

More than two years after three
hurricanes skirted near here and
cost the city of Jacksonville Beach
$1.2 million for debris cleanup, the
city is still waiting for reimburse-
ments from FEMA.
The federal agency is to reimburse
the city for 90 percent of the
cleanup costs, but as of today the
city is still waiting for the money.
The city used its own reserves to
clean up after the trio of storms. If
the storms were worse, however, the

city could not afford the wait,
according to a report included in
the city's proposed budget.
"Has these incidences been much
greater in magnitude, the city could
have had a financial crisis caused by
cash flow," finance officer Harry
Royal said. "Having a policy to
maintain adequate reserves for
emergencies and establishing a risk
management program are ways the
city can be prepared to cope with
disasters and emergencies."

Nationwide pet waste

disposers, celebrate 40

millionth pile of poop
Pet Butler, a pet waste cleanup service, has reached a milestone. Its
Fecal Matter Technicians picked up their 40 millionth pile of dog waste,
according to a company release boasting of the achievements.
Putting that quantity of dog droppings into another perspective, that
equals 8 million pounds 4,000 tons of dog doo. Without argument,
that is one big load of poop.
Pet Butler and its franchise operations have been picking up dog
droppings since 1988.
"It's kind of a disturbing mental image to think how large a single,
5,000-ton pile of dog poop would be," conceded Matt "Red" Boswell,
CEO (Chief Excrement Officer) of Pet Butler. "But aside from the fun
aspects of tallying up all the piles our people have picked up, there are
serious health issues involved as well."
Boswell noted that dog droppings are a significant factor in the con-
tamination of many public water supplies, making proper disposal a
critical issue. Beyond its nuisance factor, dog waste can be a serious
health hazard. Common parasites such as roundworm are transmitted
via dog feces, and when infected dog droppings are left on the ground,
the eggs of these parasites can linger in the soil for years. This can affect
not only other dogs, but anyone who comes in contact with the soil.
The organic matter and nutrients contained in dog waste particu-
larly nitrogen and phosphorus can significantly pollute waterways.
When washed into a pond or creek, these elements use up dissolved
oxygen in the water and release ammonia. Add in warm summer tem-
peratures, and the volatile mix can kill fish and produce highly
unpleasant odors.
"As we like to say, we are '#1 in the '#2' business,' and now we have
the poop-scooping numbers to prove it," Boswell said. The 40 millionth
pile figure was determined by detailed calculations of the number of
Pet Butler customers and their dogs. The average dog creates t3 piles of
waste each week

Registration fees for adult and
youth sports leagues are expect-
ed to increase to offset the rising
cost of maintenance at Wingate
Park in Jacksonville Beach.
The City Council Monday
approved an $61,600 project to
replace the existing chain link
fencing with a wooden fence
along the park's football field;
and install new padding at each
end zone that is more wind.
City officials last week toured
the renovated athletic fields
located on South Penman Road,
south of Shetter Avenue, during
a stop on the annual budget
Grounds Maintenance

Director Gary Meadors
explained that the foam safety
padding has been damaged by
winds and regular play and
repeatedly must be replaced.
"We have already spent
$21,000 about $3,000 per
year to replace the foam
padding," he said. "We will
probably have to replace a few
each year but not as often."
The tew two-inch thick pads
will be equipped with an attach-
ment bar on the back that
secures it to the fence and a ply-
wood backing to reduce dam-
. age...
.A pole on the.backsideof the
new wooden fencing will also
support the padding.
Meadors said city officials
planned to revise the present fee
schedule to "help out with
maintenance and other
improvement projects."
"They are going to pay for it

, one way or another," he said.
The current fee for adult
teams is $200 per season, he
said, which does not include
any additional cost for using the
field lights for practice.
"I think we all agree that the
teams are going to have to start
paying," Councilman Lee Buck
A total of 45 adult teams uti-
lize the fields at Wingate Park to
play flag football during the
winter months. Approximately

There are, however, indica-
tors that bear watching, Royal
said in a report included in the
proposed budget. Those
City expenditures per

ed as the city is facing

Annual operating and
maintenance expenditures per
electric customer have been
increasing gradually over the
past several years, largely due

to salary pressures and rising
costs for maintenance projects.
Federal and state legisla-
tion that has financial impacts
on the city's operations. In the
near future, Royal states, global
warming concerns and power
cost increases resulting from
changes in electrical resources,
"will have a significant impact
on the city's revenue sources."
Next year, a total of
$3,462,413 is to be transferred
from the city's electric utility,
Beaches Energy Services, to the
Jacksonville Beach general
fund. The transfer is a 1.8 per-
cent increase over the amount

that has been transferred this
year from the city-owned utili-
ty. Others transfers to the gen-
eral fund include gas tax funds,
money from the sanitation
utility (down 77.4 percent to
$100,000 next year) and other
miscellaneous transfers.
According to the budget,
Beaches Energy will collect
$1.2 million from customers
next year up from $93.5
million while the cost of
the power it purchases will go
up $3 million. The budget
shows nearly the same reduc-
tion in spending on capital
projects for the electric utility.

Cemetery will be better shape

before we can finish the wall,"
Grounds Maintenance Director
Gary Meadors said. "All of the
wall and the grading areas are
on hold. We are waiting on JTA.
Once they finish we can get the
landscaping in and the striping
[of Penman Road South] done."
Assistant City Manager Roy
Paxson said the expansion and
beautification efforts will
increase the size of the 1.8-acre
cemetery but he could not say
exactly how many new grave
sites will be added.
"At this point it's not plotted
out," Meadors said. "We just
don't know."
City officials also plan to
approach members of the Pablo
Renewal in Duval East (PRIDE)
neighborhood group about the
installation of a gazebo or other
spot dedicated for remberance.
"They expressed a desire to
have something like that
included in the plans," Paxson
said. "We are really close to the
original concept."
Maxine Terrell, president of
PRIDE, initiated a study to
locate unmarked graves and
other burial sites prior to the
start of the road construction.
The study area consisted of
the cleared area adjacent to and

south of Beach Boulevard and
bounded to the east by Penman
The Lee Kirkland Cemetery
was used in the 1800's as slave
burial grounds. It was turned
over to Jacksonville Beach in
1932 and is believed to be as old
as the Kingsley Plantation
Terrell said she wished city
officials had treated the study
with more sensitivity but she is
grateful that the remains located

will be included into the
expanded cemetery lines to
"rest in peace."
"The consolation to the com-
munity is the cemetery will be
in better shape than it was," she
said. "At least if we get nothing
else out of this, we managed to
save a sliver of the original prop-
erty and can have a memorial

wI Locally Owned and Operated Serving the Beaches since 1963 THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER

The Leader's Opinion

Name high school

for area it serves

As the new high school comes out of the ground just
east of Davis Park, the Ponte Vedra community is elec-
tric with anticipation. What will the school look like?
Will it be completely equipped from day one? How
will the bus schedule work? Who is the new principal
and what are his expectations? Will the faculty have
the expertise of the faculty at Nease High?
But so far, no question has produced as much inter-
est and attention as what the new school will be
named. Everyone has an opinion and many want to
express that opinion.
The Ponte Vedra Leader invited interested readers to
log on to our web site and give us their thoughts. On
Friday those comments and opinions were delivered
to Mr. Craig Speziale, the new principal. While the
school board has the final say, Mr. Speziale indicated
he would be open to input from the community. We
wanted him to have your comments.
It will come as no surprise that more than two-thirds
of the 60 responses we received are in favor of the
name "Ponte Vedra High School," most adamantly so.
Now it is time for our opinion, and the arguments sup-
porting our opinion were best expressed by the stu-
dents, parents and others who responded to our invi-
tation. Here are four comments among many that we
found persuasive:
"The students of Ponte Vedra deserve to have their
school named after the city that they love."
"The new high school should be named Ponte Vedra
High School. There will be no question about where it
is or who it serves."
"Having a school bear the name of the community
also creates a feeling of belonging among the student
body to that community for a lifetime."
And finally, from a prospective student, "I have so
much respect for all the people that the school might
be named after but I believe the school should be
named for the community in which we live."
We agree. Ponte Vedra High it should be.

services available in Hastings.
Both Health and Human
Services, and the Health
Department, say that by redis-
tributing current personnel and
work load, they can provide
more services with little to no
increase in'cost. Despite having
no overhead, the current pri-
vate physician keeps all fees
from private insurance,
Medicare and Medicaid billings.
The County can bill those
patients for services. The fees
would go to the County instead
of the private physician and
offset County costs even if
billed at the lowest insurance
level. At the current case load,
about $120,000 could be real-

Flagler Primary Care has seen
many more patients, a nurse
practitioner and additional
physician would be needed.
They could apply for a J1 (for-

eign, non-resident) physician,
just like others have.
The fees from private insur-
ance, Medicare and Medicaid
will stay with the County, off
setting expenses. Given the cur-
rent case load, I predict the
County may break even or bet-
ter. Remember we are provid-
ing care to only the indigent,
Medicaid, Medicare, and some
private pay clients. While it
would be nice to care for all'the
uninsured, neither this county
nor this nation has been able to
do that.
If, as I predict, the county can
do this with very little expense,
why would they contract with a
private practice for significantly
more money? The County
spent $1.4 million last year, and
even $900,000 is too much this
year. We are in financial
crunch time, and that means
we must explore ways to deliver
all services to our citizens in an
affordable manner. Paying
more, getting less should not be
our model!

extended summer schedule was
already approved by legislators.
Parents knew to brace for a long
summer break in 2007. So why
didn't the county?
Because, when Jacksonville
parks officials asked the school
board about the extended
break, school officials con-
vinced them that changes
would be made. As it turned
out, those assurances were
merely wishful thinking.
A spokesman of the
Jacksonville mayor's office said
budget decisions last spring had
to be based on the reality of the
moment. The reality was and
is an extended summer
break. The mayor's office chose
to base its pool operations
budget on the misplaced hope
of school officials, rather than
the legislative decisions that
were already on the record.
That misplaced trust means
kids who might like to cool off
with a swim or get in a few laps
of exercise at the public pool are
out of luck at the Beach.
On Monday, the parks
department announced that
several pools will be open this
week but not at Fletcher.
Such disdain for the public
interests of the Beaches is noth-
ing new. After all, kids can swim
in the ocean if they want to
cool off, right? Well, maybe if
the sands were not so crowded
with townies.
There is a silver lining in the
pool being closed, however.
Students who endure the
heat without a pool this week
will be better trained to endure
the inevitable air-conditioning
malfunctions that seem to
accompany the first few weeks
of school.
Annually, the start of school
is marked by a few reports of
systems failing in window-less
classrooms built in ac-depend-
ent schoolhouses.
So no pools, but saunas a def-
inite possibility.

Port Authority will raise rates for ferry customers

Staff Writer
The St. Johns River Ferry will
stay afloat since the
Jacksonville Port Authority
agreed to assume responsibility
for its funding and operations,
according to officials.
The seven-member board of
directors for Jaxport Monday
unanimously voted to take over
funding for at least the next year
and to keep Hornblower Marine
Services whose contract ends
in September on to manage
operations for at least a year as
"We did it! We did it! We did
it!," said an excited Paul
Parsons, chair of the Mayport
Waterfront Partnership.
"Everybody that had anything
to do with it ought to pat- them-'
selves on the back" '
The ferry, which was estab-
lished in 1948, has seen its share
of muddy waters after the state
abandoned it year ago, then the
city of Jacksonville said this.

spring it could no longer afford
to maintain the approximately
$1 million operation and a
$396,000 budget line item was
recently denied by Gov. Charlie
Jaxport Executive Director
Rick Ferrin explained that he
believes Jaxport can improve
some of the ferry's deficit
through advertising, raising

Homestead to focus on basics, stay open

Staff Writer
The home fires haven't
stopped burning just yet for a
Jacksonville Beach landmark.
Owners of The Homestead
restaurant at 1712 Beach
Boulevard announced last week
that the business would close its
doors Monday after 60 years.
Hank Woodburn, who owns
the Homestead Property and the
adjacent Adventure Landing
entertainment facility, Tuesday
said last minute negotiations
with co-owner Teresa Brown-
SPratt will keep the fried chicken
on the tables.
The restaurant will reopen for
dinner today. Lunch will no
longer be served except for the
"well-attended" Sunday brunch.
"We have saved The
Homestead," he said.
"Everything will be fine."
Woodburn said Adventure
Landing will help with a rent

reduction and will provide
accounting services to help trim
the fat and cut expenses.
The menu will be modified to
offer family style options "like
there used to be," Woodburn
said, in addition to other
changes. "It is a basic streamlin-
ing of operations."Woodburn
said business will not require as
many employees without serv-
ing lunch. The restaurant used
to staff 65 employees and
helped many of them with job
"Unfortunately, we lost some
of the more experienced chefs,"
he said. "Most of them did take
other full-time jobs but they are
going to be able to help out in
some fashion."
The Homestead packed the
house Monday night for their
last night in business, despite,
the ongoing problems associat-
ed with the road construction in
front of the restaurant.

"I couldn't even get in the
parking lot so I just kept going,"
Woodburn said.
, Business was also steady all
weekend as patrons streamed in
for one last plate of chicken and
"[JTA] parked six big pieces of
equipment out front all week-
end long." Woodburn said.
"Our side [of Beach Boulevard]
is the toughest because that's
where all the utilities are."
Woodburn said JTA officials
expect that the south side of
Beach Boulevard will be paved
by year's end which he said will
help control the dust and the
restaurant's general appearance..
For now, restaurant staffers are
preparing for business as usual.
"We are going to have some
sort of welcome home celebra-
tion but right now everyone is
kind of taking a breather,"
Woodburn said.

McCray realizes dream

as Mayport's principal

Incoming sixth graders attend the "Passages" orientation program last week at Mayport Middle School.

Mayport Middle's 'Passages' program

gives students a jump start on school

Four rising sixth graders
spent two worthwhile days
getting to know Mayport
Middle School last week.
SThe students, Sara Girard,
Samantha Grant, Lizzie
Pereira and Katy Solis, took
part in "Passages," an orien-
tation program, held Aug. 8
and 9.
"I like it," Pereira said of
the six-hour program.
"Yesterday we took a tour
of the school, and we talked
about soPne of the stuff
we're going to have to do in
middle school. I'm kind of
nervous, but I'm still excited
about it."
"I feel I know my way
around the school more,
and that helps me," added
"I really enjoyed learning
more about the school," said
Grant, adding that she was
able to find her way around,
and remember how to do
her locker combination.
Something that struck
Grant was the fact that she
has "three different halls,
one on the side, one in the
middle, one on the other
side," she said.
The challenge in that, she
said, is remembering which
is which.
"I learned not to do a peer
pressure," said Solis,
"because people try the peer
pressure. Just be yourself,
and don't care what anyone
else might think."
Solis was looking forward
to the program's second ses-
sion "to at least know where
I'm going," she said,
"because this is confusing. I
get lost very easily."
Her mother, Annamarie
Solis, admitted to being a

little apprehensive.
"It's a.whole new start for
her. It's an exciting but scary
experience. She's going to be
facing a lot more challenges
than she had in elementary

school, such as peer pres-
sure. That's why she's here. I
want her to get a good

why the girls ran a "locker
relay" both days.
"They'll learn how to use
a combination lock, then
learn how to get from point
A to point B in four min-
"There's four minutes
between classes," Hope-
Moore said.
"This will help them ease
into it, be comfortable com-
ing the first day of school,
confident they can succeed."
Kirstin Archon, in her sec-
ond day as assistant princi-
pal at Mayport Middle and
expecting a baby the middle
of next month, said Hope-
Moore is "providing; academ-
ic, behavioral and social
supports the girls need to be
well-adjusted to the middle
school setting."
Hope-Moore, who's been
teaching for five years, is

year doing the mentoring
program. We did "Get Real"
as an after-school program
for seventh- and eighth-
grade girls last year. We're
going to continue "Get
Real" this year. This is our
first time doing the Passages
program. It's through the
Girls Scouts Gateway
Council," she said.
"It's a good group," Hope-
Moore said of her foursome.
"They're eager to learn. A
lot of things they're scared
about, we're getting out on

Katrina McCray has real-
ized a dream that began
two years ago, but it
came with a short learning
McCray took over as princi-
pal at Mayport Middle School
Aug. 1, leaving her with 12
days to get ready before teach-
ers return to their classrooms
Aug. 13 and 19 days to pre-
pare for approximately 750
students who will arrive at the
middle school Aug. 20.
McCray came to Mayport
Middle from Fletcher High,
where she was an assistant
principal. And she achieved
her goal because she remem-
bered words of advice from
her brother, William Bunn.
"You have to own what you
want, if you really believe it,"
McCray said her brother once
told her. "And I really believed
McCray worked on a media
promotion program with
Mayport Middle principal
Karen Davis, who recently
moved to Nease High in Ponte
Vedra Beach as an assistant
"When I walked into
Mayport the first time, I
looked around and said, 'This
is my school.' That was my.
goal, to be here, to be the
principal," said McCray, born
and raised in Monrovia, Calif.
McCray joined the Air Force
after high school.and served
four years. She began as a sur-
vival instructor, then became
a medic. She traded the mili-
tary for college, getting a
degree in electronic engineer-
ing at Cal State-Northridge.
"I did that for 12 years. I
loved it. I worked for Hughes
Aircraft. I was part of the Star
Wars program. It was an excit-
ing point in my life."
Then came what McCray
called a life-changing event:
Her husband died in a car

"I had to make a choice:
hire a nanny and stay in the
career I chose, or quit and
raise my child. I chose my
son. I requested a 'golden
handshake' from my compa-
ny. They moved me to Florida,
paid my salary for a few
months. I spent the next five
years raising him."
She and son, David, came to
Florida in 1993. He attended
Jacksonville Beach ,
Elementary, where his mother
"I was involved with the
PTA, the Cub Scouts, the Boy
Scouts, everything. I was like
their permanent substitute
teacher. Lawilda Bartley told
me, 'You're here all the time.
Why don't you just become a
teacher, so you get paid for
doing this?'"
McCray proceeded to get a
master's degree in elementary
education degree from the
University of North Florida.
"About the time he finished
elementary school was when I
decided to start teaching. We
went to middle school togeth-
er," she said.
McCray helped open Twin
Lakes Acadaemy Middle with
Helene Kirkpatrick, the former
principal at Fletcher and now
at Forrest.
"From the time we met, she
became my mentor."
It was at Twin Lakes, where
McCray taught math, that she
came to strongly believe in
what she calls "rigor."
"The kids who came to me,
many of them went to
Stanton or Paxon. They did
very well," she added.
It was also at Twin Lakes
and working with Kirkpatrick
that McCray realized she
wanted a position from which
she could influence teachers
because, she said, "I always
was out teaching teachers:

St. Augustine restaurant's new dessert honors beloved tree

t. Augustine's Collage
Restaurant is celebrating
the 20th Anniversary of
its beloved bougainvillea
tree by offering a colorful
and delicious new dessert
called -what else The
The bougainvillea tree,
which is situated at the
entrance to the restaurant at
60 Hypolita St., was brought
to St. Augustine from Corsica
in 1985 by Marceau Poncet,
the previous restaurant
Collage has been under the
ownership of Cindy Stangby
and Mike Hyatt since
September 2006.
This variety of bougainvil-

lea with its large lilac and
hot pink flowers is unlike
any variety found in other
areas of the U.S., according
to the restaurant.
The local climate in St.
Augustine is similar to the
climate on Corsica and the
tree flourished until a 1987
frost killed all but a small
Since then, the surviving
shoot has grown into a 20-
foot tree which is often pho-
tographed by visitors to St.

Augustine, said Hyatt, who
previously owned a restau-
rant with Stangby in
Midland, Texas.
At Collage, they offer
"global dining" with a vari-
ety of dishes. The owners
collaborate on new recipes
for the restaurant, including
the recipe for The
Bougainvillea,which features
fresh strawberries prepared
with a unique sauce and
served with homemade
vanilla ice cream prepared by
Collage Chef Melody
The sauce made from
Cabernet and the vanilla
bean has a nice flavor that
complements the strawber-
ries, Hyatt said. It would also
be excellent with raspberries.

Patrons at Collage have
"really enjoyed the presenta-
tion" of the dessert in petals
made of phyllo dough,
according to Hyatt.

The Bougainvillea recipe is
as follows:

4 Cups whole strawberries,
hulled and quartered length-
7 T. sugar
one-quarter tsp. pepper
2-inch long piece of vanil-
la bean split lengthwise
1 T. cornstarch
2 T. unsalted butter

too thin. Later you can keep the area maintained by we kly tweezin or
maintain a schedule of waxing. Also look at the color of your eyebrows,.
make sure theVre a tad darker than your hair color. Very blonde, grey or

And if you like and want the suggestions given which you

allow the suggestions to enter your subconscious mind, Subra
explained. "This part of you is like a computer and must
respond to what is allowed to enter it," he said. "Using hyp-
nosis, we can access this organic computer and re-program
ourselves to be whatever we wish to be."
After earning a bachelor's degree in computer science and a
master's in computer applications, Subra worked as a comput-
er programmer. Seven years ago he began studying hypnosis
and developed yet another programming skill helping oth-
ers re-program their subconscious patterns to improve their
quality of life.
In addition to being NGH-certified, Subra's impressive list of
credentials includes being a Licensed Practitioner of Neuro
Linguistic Programming (NLPI, NGH-certihed in pediatric
hypnosis and board-certified by the National Board of
Hypnosis Education and Certification. He also completed
advanced training in age regression techniques at the Banyan
Hypnosis Center in Tustin, California
According to Subra, all of us are what the programming in
our subconscious mind perceives us to be. "That means if this
part of our mind viewss us as overweight, then we are over-
weight," he said. "If it perceives that we smoke, then we smoke-

"It's an environment of the mind where unconscious learning
that you've acquired over a lifetime suddenly become avail-

You are less critical in this state," he said. "You're ready to
learn new patterns at the subconscious level that could help
you make positive changes in your life, or alter old learning
that do not serve you in a positive way."
One thing is for sure hypnosis is NOT sleep. "You hear
everything that's being said by the hypnotist," Subra said.

There's no way' you'll 'get stuck' because if you're left unat-

In fact, all of us have experienced some form of hypnosis -
while driving or watching TV when we get so engrossed and
focused that we lose track of time and aren't concerned about
what's happening around us, Subra explained.

Panthers showcase offense in scrimmage


The first week of Nease High
football practice culminated in
a spirited scrimmage last
Saturday morning at Davis
Park in Ponte Vedra.
While starting quarterback
Ted Stachitas was absent due
to family obligations, the
Panthers showcased their usual
pass-oriented offense but with
a few new wrinkles. For exam-
ple, screen passes were preva-
lent as were quick two- and
three-step drops by QB Tyler
Weir, who fired timing passes
to wideouts and scat back
Andrew Barnes.

Defensively, the Panthers
looked stout although several
starters sat out the game-por-
tion of the scrimmage to allow
coaches to evaluate second-
teamers and underclassmen.
Coach Craig Howard said
several additional scrimmages
are planned in the weeks lead-
ing up to Nease's regular sea-
son opener at Citra North
Marion on August 31.
Stachitas and the first-team
offense got plenty of practice
time together throughout the
summer's Bigger, Faster,
Stronger camp and at last
month's Hoover 7-on-7 Passing
Tournament in Alabama.

Afterward, O'Donnell told
reporters the event was a "great

the Women's Amateur will help
make her a better player.
The Panthers golfer opened
stroke play last Monday with a
3-under-par 69 that included
an eagle on the par-5, 455-yard
15th hole.



"We were all playing at the
same level," said O'Donnell,
referring to playing partners

shan Feng, both of whom also
carded 69s. "And it was friend-

greeted by
fierce winds that saw most
players struggling.
"It was gusting to probably
30 mph," she said. "The condi-
tions were tough and it was
really hard to keep the ball in
the fairway or on the greens."
O'Donnell said she focused
on making pars and aside from
a double-bogey on the par-4
14th, kept her round intact

despite the blustery conditions.
She finished with a 5-over 77
but moved into match play
with a two-day total of 146.
That was O'Donnell's stated
objective before departing for
the tournament last week.
"My first goal is to make the
match play part of the tourna-
ment," she saidthen. "The field
is trimmed to 64 for match play
after the first two days and my
first goal is to-make it that far."
O'Donnell defeated Tanya
Wadhwa, of McKinney, Texas, 5
and 4 in the opening round of
match play.
The next round began well
for O'Donnell who took an
early lead when she parred the
first hole and Walshe bogeyed.
But Walshe rebounded to play
the next 12 holes at 5-under
and recorded a 6 and 5 victory.
A double-bogey on the sec-
ond hole, and bogeys on the
6th, 10th and 12th holes
proved O'Donnell's undoing.
"I played well but [Walshe's]

PV teams find great 3v3 success


For one area soccer club to send numer-

The PVSC developed a
3v3 league, which is a faster-paced, short-
fielded version of soccer, that the club uses
as a training tool for its developmental and
competition teams.
Members of the Ponte Vedra Storm have
taken to 3v3 soccer, a version of the game
Clark says every player from the develop-

"There is a direct correlation between the
small-sided soccer and the full-sided game,"




Clark said. "It's in a small, confined space,
so the players are under greater pressure.
All their touches have to be perfect. The
game is fast, so it's a real good transition to
the big field.
"It really teaches incredible one-on-one
skills. It also helps introduce tactical play

The club also has numer-

girls team that has won multiple champi-
onships over the years. Members of that
team also play on the full-sided Ponte Vedra
Storm, which is a nationally-ranked team.
The club's Under-12 girls team, coached
by Clark, is currently undefeated over the
past 18 months against teams in its age
group. The team won three tournaments
over the summer playing against teams in
the Under-14 division, a two-year age

This.year's championship was a repeat

"They'll typically play against an older
age group of girls or sometimes boys to see
better competition," Clark said. "There's
just no competition when they play teams
in their age group."
Ponte Vedra also brought championships
home in the Under-lO boys, Under-11 girls
and Under-12 boys divisions. The Under-
15 girls lost in the last minute of their
championship game, preventing a possible
sixth championship team.
Clark takes pride in the level of soccer the
PVSC has been playing, and goes to great
measures drawing up schemes for the 3v3
"I like to develop different offensive and
defensive schemes that other, teams never
see," Clark said. "Nearly 40 percent of our
goals this summer were from set plays,
including corner kicks, free kicks and
throws. We've been able to develop a
scheme other teams are struggling to do."
The PVSC's 3v3 league ended up with
nearly 120 kids spread over the 20 teams, a
nice percentage of the nearly 700 young-
sters that play soccer for the club. Clark says
each player's development has been incred-
"We have a club of about 700 kids that
goes out and beats clubs with 2,000 kids,"
Clark said. "That really says something
about our programs here.
"All our coaches are really into it as well.
We really have a great thing in the Ponte
Vedra Soccer Club."

in a 3-yard touchdown in the

Big tarpon caught from kayaks 3

he ultimate in kayak fish-
ing is being enjoyed by
Fletcher High coach Zsolt
Takacs and his friend Jeremy
Ackerman. Both have been get-
ting the rides of their lives as
they coax big tarpon out of the
bait pods from the jetties to
Daytona Beach.
Both Zsolt and Jeremy have
caught dozens of tarpon this
season from their kayaks and
have eight weeks left. These
pods of pogies also hold
sharks, jacks and red bass.
Tossing a pogie into one of
these pods will invariably pro-
vide you with some unbeliev-
able action. Coach Takacs sug-
gests you should go with some-
one who has some experience
the first time. Surf conditions,
of course, and securing every-
thing is obviously very impor-
tant and can be a real problem.
James Gergley and Steve
Webb chummed for tarpon last
Monday with Capt. Randall
Dyal. They caught two tarpon
off the desert. Both weighed
around 90 pounds.
On Wednesday, Mike
Tandarich and James fished the
creeks and caught 10 red bass
and two drum.
Last Tuesday, Capt. Mike
Morris and Jeff Shore fished
the red tops with live bait and
caught an 80-pound and a 90-

pound tarpon along with a pair
of black tips. On a second trip,
Capt. Mike took Bruce Walker,
his son Patrick and daughter
Sarah to Nassau Sound last
Friday where they caught 28
whiting, seven pompano and
eight jacks.
Capt. Freddy Bridges, his
wife Judy, David Kelly, Kathy
Merritt and Eric Bohn on the
Bodacious fished the Elton
Bottom last week. They trolled
for six kings to 20 pounds, a
20-pound blackfin and 10 bar-

On Wednesday Shawn Hurr
and Tony Reed led a great day
of fishing from the Princess.
Shawn caught a 22-pound
amberjack and Tony caught a
10-pound snapper, a 10-pound
amberjack and a 25-pound
amberjack. Darrell and Logan
Meade teamed up and caught
four amberjack. Logan caught
three fat jacks and Darrell had
Guide Fred Morrow made
the Nassau Sound trip last
Monday morning with friend
Jim Lyons. They had action all
morning and came home with
36 whiting and 14 jacks.
On Tuesday, Joe Taylor made
the trip to Nassau with Fred
and they caught 39 whiting, 12
jacks and two sharks. I.L.
Freeman and Nate Jones went
with Fred on Wednesday to
Nassau and caught 51 whiting,
11 jacks'and five sharks.
Then on Thursday, Bill
Montgomery and Capt. Fred
stayed in the river for a half
day and caught four red bass
weighing between 13 and 26

tinues to have great luck in the
surf near Ft. George. On
Thursday, he used clams and

On Friday, Larry and George
Atelevich caught 15 flounder,
three big jacks and released a
dozen reds. All were caught on
the outgoing tide.
Bruce Boyer fished the Ft.
George surf and caught 18
whiting, three pompano and a
25-inch red. All were caught on
On the Jacksonville Beach
Pier last week, anglers dug out
the wide brimmed straw hats
and put on plenty of sun
screen. Flounder, triple-tails,
speckled trout, pompano and
red bass were weighed up all
during the week.
Vince Sawyer and Mike
Easterbrook had good catches
of flounder. Spencer,Brogden
and Justine caught red bass.
Thomas Verdts was the talk of

the pier with his 21-pound
Willie Ulmer fished around
Shands Bridge last week and
caught six red bass to 35 inch-
es, two drum and jumped a
small tarpon.
Capt. Scott Reynolds and his
anglers continue to come in
each afternoon with solid
catches of cobia, snapper,
grouper, kings and beeliners.
Seven cobia came over the rails
of the King Neptune last week.
Mule snapper, beeliners and
dozens of grouper were iced
down on the Neptune on each
trip last week.
Capt. Dennis Young, on his
Sea Dancer with the James
Manchan party last
Wednesday, had great action
on the bottom at the party
grounds. They brought home
seven snapper, 40 beeliners, 15
triggers and a pair of grouper.
On Thursday, the Miles King
party fished with Capt. Dennis
and caught their limit of 50
beelinrs, five snapper and 21
On Sunday, the Steve
Washington party caught 50
beeliners, three snapper, 17
triggerfish and 12 amberjack.
Capt. Dennis reports that on
each of his trips last week his
anglers had to release between
100 and 150 snapper that were
a little too short.
Captains Barri Vickers and
Rick Ryals, with friends Bill
Wilderotter and Clay and
Curtis Ludwig, took the Dos
Amigos to the dry dock over
last weekend. Young Clay
caught his first sailfish, a beau-
tiful seven-footer. They also
had plenty of barracuda action
before dropping to the bottom
later in the morning.
For the next few hours they
boxed pinkies, several grouper,
beeliners and triggerfish. Of
course; back at the dock the
crew gave Clay his ceremonial
toss into the water.
Capt. Randall Dyal on a sec-
ond tarpon trip last Sunday
with his guest Clark Lauer
caught a tarpon weighing
about 60 pounds. Clark caught
his first tarpon off the red top
chumming using a.trout for
bait. They also released five
Good Fishin'.
