Historical Society hosts meeting
The Annual Meeting of the Beaches Area Historical Society
will take place on Thursday, September 13 at the Beaches
Museum & History Center.
Members, as well as the general public, are invited to
attend the event free of charge. The event will begin with a
reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the meeting at 7 p.m.,
and end with a lecture and exhibit review by Theodore

Morris will speak at this year's Annual Meeting as part of
Tracking Florida History: Lectures on the First Coast Series.
His paintings, The Lost Tribes, will be on exhibition in the
Dickinson Gallery from September 4 through October 28.
As an artist, Morris's work takes a journey through time;
using oil paintings asa depiction of the native cultures lost to
Florida's history. Morris worked- with archaeologists and
anthropologists throughout the State of Florida to gather
information, view artifacts, and research early colonial docu-
ments. Through his paintings, he chronicles the Native
American cultures that lived in Florida as early as, 13,000
years ago. His recent book, The Lost Tribes, collaboration.
with Jerald T. Milanich, Curator of Archaeology at the Florida
Museum of Natural History, is on sale in the gift shop. Morris
will be available that evening to autograph copies.

You can get there from here

The arrival of Nocatee made it difficult to get to the Walden
Chase community and Palm Valley Golf Club, both situated
on C.R. 210. The only way to get to either from the Beaches
was by taking Nocatee Parkway to Coastal Ridge Boulevard,
then continuing on to what remained of C.R. 210 heading
east. After that, it became "fust follow the signs."
Recently, however, there's another way to get to there from
here and also check out Nocatee along the way.
The opening of the Nocatee Parkway/Crosswater Parkway
interchange means you can get to the center of Nocatee via
Crosswater Parkway. As it travels south through Nocatee,
Crosswater Parkway connects with Preservation Trail.
Preservation Trail, in turn, leads to C.R. 210, heading west.
The old, familiar roadway travels by the 2,640-yard, par-58
Palm.Valley executive course and on to Walden Chase.
So you can get there from here.

A little light reading...

Florida's auto insurance consumers can log onto
the Web site,, and click on the
"Life without No-Fault" link to learn about the
new insurance laws in effect after the sunset of No-
Florida's Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law will expire
on Oct. 1, along with the requirement to purchase
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage.
Beginning Oct. 1, whether someone is at fault in
an accident could make all the difference as to
which driver will be liable to pay for damages.
"The best advice we can give to consumers is to
purchase enough auto insurance coverage to pro-
vide proper medical treatment for themselves and
their families," said CFO Sink, who oversees the
Department of Financial Services. "In the event
someone is at fault in an accident after the expira-
tion of No-Fault, sufficient auto insurance cover-
age can help protect that family's financial assets."
"Life without No-Fault" contains answers to fre-
quently asked questions and the definitions of
popular insurance terms. Floridians can review a
chart detailing which driver in an accident is liable
for payment of injuries or damages. Additionally,
consumers will find CFO Sink's previous outline of
policy considerations in a post-No-Fault world.
One of the largest changes for consumers will be
that payment for injuries sustained during an acci-
dent will now be the financial responsibility of the
at-fault driver. Under the current No-Fault Law,
Florida drivers and motor vehicle operators are
required to carry PIP coverage, which would pay
the first $10,000 of the drivers' (and their passen-
gers') medical costs, regardless of fault.

AB will not

budget for j


bike paths

in future

For the first time in four
years, bike paths were not fac-
tored into the city of Atlantic
Beach's budget, according to
Due to budget constraints
for the upcoming fiscal year,
bike paths were not included
in the budget and there are
only two proposed sidewalks,
according to Public Works
Director Rick Carper .
Finance Director Nelson
Van Liere estimates that the
city will lose approximately
$622,000 in revenues in the
upcoming fiscal year due to
the state's property tax legisla-
By not including the bike
and ped path extensions in
the upcoming fiscal year's
budget, the city could save
approximately $150,000.
The only two sidewalks that
are included in the budget are
on George Street and Ardella
Road and they will be paid for
using Community
Development Board grant
funds, according to Carper.
Also, some cuts have
already been made including
$10,000 for roadways and
$5,000 for tree and shrub
replacements, which primari-
ly affects Town Center, medi-
ans and the flyover, according
to Carper.

9th Street South plan

to include turn lanes

Plans to relocate existing power poles from
the west side of the 9th Street corridor to 10th
Street will tie into planned improvements of
the roadway.
Beaches Energy Services will move the wood-
en poles and replace them with concrete poles
on 10th Street as part of a line rebuilding proj-
City Manager George Forbes said the electric
system upgrade will piggyback nicely on the
enhancements planned along the 9th Street
"It will'really help make that area much nice.
It ties in nicely with the road work," he said.
"This is a project that the citizens been very
interested to see happen over the years. We are
really looking forward to this."
The project area extends from Beach
Boulevard to Osceola Avenue,
Utility Director Don Ouchley said utility
lines are already in place on 10th Street to
accommodate the installation of the concrete
"We are not adding poles," he said. "We are
just adding wire."
The wooden poles on 9th Street were deemed
unsightly by the urban design firm Glatting

Jackson during a tour of the two-lane street.
Other improvements will include standardiz-
ing the lane width to 11 feet with pedestrian
crosswalks at all traffic signals and sidewalks on
both sides of the street. The existing lanes
range from 10 to 11 and a half feet wide.
"It is going to be really crowded but it is
going to be good," Public Works Director Ty
Edwards said, noting the limited amount of
existing right of way in the project area.
"With 11 feet, we can get the turning lanes
in where we need them. We've got a tremen-
dous amount of buses and tractor trailer rigs
going up and down this road."
Turning lanes will be installed at 9th Street
South where it intersects with Beach
Boulevard, Shetter Avenue and 13th Avenue
South to handle the increase in traffic generat-
ed by the, realignment of Penman Road.
"Once that alignment is in, the new lanes
will give more queuing time for turning at
Beach Boulevard," Edwards said.
A traffic median will be added at 9th Street
South and Millie Drive. A mast arm signal will
be installed at 3rd Avenue South.
The design for the 9th Street improvement
project is about 35 percent complete. Bids will
be solicited in late spring or early summer,
2008, Edwards said.

Letters to the editor:

Many benefit from

generosity of others

To the editor:
It has been one week since
the 2007 Back to School with
BEAM was held on Saturday,
August 11. The program was
as remarkable this year as it has
been for the past 13 years
thanks to the generous, giving
nature of the Beaches and West
Beaches community. Over 185
volunteers participated in the
total program. Some volun-
teers helped put together
school supply bags, some
painted pencil boxes, others
set up for the event and then
helped 803 children and their
families shop at Back to School
with BEAM. Some ran the

the presence your paper has in

Naming a school requires advance work

ith several new
schools under con-
struction and many
more on the drawing boards, it
is a good time to do some
advanced planning on school
School names are a way that a
community has of honoring
people, places and events that
have made a contribution to its
past and deserve to be remem-
bered by its future.
When my children attended
Webster Elementary School, I
recall their excitement when
they came home and
announced that they had met
James A. Webster, for whom the
school was named. Two decades
later they still remember that,
though they have probably for-
gotten every single fact they
were taught in class that day.
There were several notable
patterns of school-naming in
the past. One was for School
Board chairs like R. B. Hunt and
Evelyn Hamblen (who was the
first woman to hold public
office in St. Augustine). Another
was for school superintendents
like Otis' Mason, John
Crookshank and W. Douglas
We have schools named for
prominent cultural figures who
lived in the area, like novelist
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and
'folk singer Gamble Rogers.
Then there are schools named
for people as diverse as Alice
Landrum and Osceola, who
played historic roles in our com-
I have been distressed in
recent years to see these old
Naming patterns overwhelmed
by an endless number of real
estate-inspired ones. It is per-
haps to be expected that when
newcomers are asked to suggest
names, they naturally think of
their street, subdivision, or
guard-gated community. As a
result, we have lost the impor-
tant opportunity to celebrate


our heritage, and merely repeat
what is already visible on every
other "For Sale" sign.
In the spirit of being proac-
tive, I would suggest that the
School Board start long in
advance to create a list of rec-
ommended names from which
future selections can be made.
Believe it or not, I have a few
to put in the hopper:
What about a Zora Neale
Hurston School to match that
of her friend and contemporary
author, Marlone Kinnan
What about great artists, like
Martin Johnson Heade, whose
studio is now being restored at
Flagler College, or Randolph
Caldecott, father of the modem
illustrated children's book, who
lies buried in West Augustine's
Evergreen Cemetery?
Gamble Rogers would be
glad, I'm sure, to have a school
named for his fellow trouba-
dour, Woody Guthrie, who
wrote many songs here in St.'
Johns County (though not his
famous "This Land is Your

More letters to the editor:

High taxes should mean high level of service

To the editor:
I own commercial property in
Jacksonville Beach where I run
my business. I pay a lot in prop-
erty taxes. I really wouldn't
mind paying the high taxes if I
thought I was getting a high
level of service, but I'm not.
About a week ago I got a call
at home from my alarm compa-
ny that our alarm was going off
at fhe business. They said they
had called the police. I got
dressed and drove from my
house in Atlantic Beach to my

business. It probably took me
about 5 minutes. When I got
there I was surprised the police
weren't already there. I checked
the place out and it was thank-
fully a false alarm. I called the
police and cancelled the call.
As I was getting ready to
leave, maybe 25 minutes after
the call from my alarm compa-
ny, a police officer drove by and
told me he was on .his way
when he got the call to cancel
and wanted to make sure every-
thing was OK. He was very pro-

fessional and obviously con-

Ponte Vedra hijacked by development interests

To the editor:
Until the mid 1960's Ponte
Vedra was bounded by The
Duval County line to the
north, the Atlantic Ocean to
the east, somewhere around
the old Oasis bar to the south,
and what is now A1A to the
west. New A1A was completed
in the mid 1960's and skirted
existing Ponte Vedra. South
Ponte Vedra was generally con-
sidered to be both sides of A1A
from the Oasis to the Guana
Palm Valley was in the same
postal zone and Ponte Vedra -
32082 but no one was under
an illusion the Palm Valley was
in Ponte Vedra. Palm Valley
was bounded by new A1A to

the east, Solano Road to the
north, the Intracoastal
Waterway to the west, and
Mickler's (pronounced
Micklers, the i is long) Road to
the south. To call Nocatee and
even Palm Valley, Ponte Vedra
is a misnomer propagated by
real estate agents and develop-
ment interests in order to
make money off of the Ponte
Vedra name. I am surprised
that the aristocrats on Ponte
Vedra Boulevard (old A1A)
haven't spoken up. All the new
residents in "Ponte Vedra" are
going to want access to "their"
beach, that the Ponte Vedra
Boulevard residents were so
desperately to keep private.
It's bad enough that the

development industry has co-.
opted our local governments
through campaign donations,
(for instance, 99 percent of the
exceptions to the 2010
Comprehensive Growth Plan
have been approved by the
Jacksonville City Council -Ron
Littlepage), but misnaming
whole geographic areas adds
insult to injury. Palm Valley is
Palm Valley (or Cabbage
Swamp), and Nocatee is Diego
Plains (or D-Dot Ranch). I
would be very interested to
know how Nocatee got desig-
nated as Ponte Vedra.

How much

ego does it

take to


here's a certified teacher
living in my house.
He's even a co-parent of
my children. And I have a
pretty respectable education.
But it never occurred to us to
steer our own educational
course for our children. Not
that it was a popular alterna-
Stive at the time.
Now, it is a definite option
and the choice of many par-
ents right here in our com-
munity. What moves parents
to teach their own children
at home? Well, it isn't all
done in the "home" I have
come to learn. There is the
library, and any number of
other locations. In fact, the
old public school concept of
a field trip takes a radical
turn upward for the home-
schooled child.
I started looking for an
answer by visiting some of
the Internet sites directed to
parents. One of the first
interesting bits of advice I
found, at
Homeschooling, was a state-
ment by a Barbara
Hernandez, whose primary
credential is that she has
home schooled for 18 yeats.
She says, "If you can read
and write, you can home-
school." That is not only
Simplistic, it is insulting. It
devalues four years of col-
lege education and the addi-
tional education required of
our teachers to maintain
their certification. This
minimalist requirement is
not good enough for the
child either, in my opinion.
But, lest I despair, this
same expert, backed up by
many other such "experts",
gave me a more respectable
bit of advice. She listed fac-
tors that parents must seri-
ously consider before jump-
ing off the bus to the public
It is a huge time commit-
ment to the schooling par-
ent. You will be around your
student 24/7! Emphasizing
that one parent assumes the
major responsibility, this
means the loss of an income
outside the home for that
adult. This can bring finan-
cial strain for the family. It
means study, planning and
creativity even with all of the
helpful material that is avail-
able. It is also suggested that
you must have the agree-
ment of both parents and the
child must also be willing.
School districts have
requirements and testing in
place to assist parents and
protect the child in fhis edu-
cational option. There is a
wealth of course study mate-
rial and ideas available.
Studies of home schooled
children show impressive
But where do I sign up to
get the other elements I
would need namely, confi-
dence and patience? School,
or formalized learning, is
every day, every month (for
nine months if you follow
public school calendars), and
every year. Do you see
where the patience factor
comes in? For example,
some children behave con-
sistently better for the teach-
ers than they do in the com-
fort of home.
So much depends on
building the self confidence
of our children. Where does
the home schooling parent
get his or/and her self confi-
dence? 'That is my puzzle
with this concept. Where do
you get the boldness (chutz-
pah) necessary to launch this
career of turning out a well-
rounded, educated young

What great names for schools!
In our Ancient City, which
has made a living on history,
what about naming schools for
our outstanding 20th century
historians, Albert Manucy and
Luis Arana? Or Jean Parker
Waterbury, first female presi-
dent of the St. Augustine
Historical Society? Or pioneer
archaeologist John Griffin?
We have owed much to pho-
tographers who have recorded
the past for us and made possi-
ble the restoration of some of
our historic buildings. Work is
now under way on St. Benedict
School in Lincolnville, and a
sign at the site features a 1920s
photo taken by Richard
Aloysius Twine, who has gained
posthumous recognition as one
of the nation's greatest black
photographers. His white con-
temporary, F Victor Rahner, left
a long and distinguished visual
record of our community.
Outside photographers have
also made pilgrimages to St.
Augustine and left us classic
views. Two famous ones were
William Henry Jackson, who
cam enduring the Flagler era; and
Frances' Benjamin Johnston,
who came during the New Deal.
What excellent names to attach"
to new schools!
In the spirit of honoring edu-
cators past, I would suggest
Solomon Calhoun and Rosalie
Gordon Mills, who both fos-
tered excellence in an era of
racial discrimination and richly
deserve to be'remembered.
Even this long list will not
suffice to name all the new
schools we have coming our
way, so there is plenty of room
for additional suggestions.
Let's give our schools names
worthy of the education that we
hope will be passed on inside

A street improvement proj-
ect for 4th Avenue in
Jacksonville Beach was unani-
mously approved at a City
Council meeting Monday.
The 4th Avenue South
Streetcape Improvement proj-
ect includes roadway recon-
struction, curbing, new asphalt
parking on each side of the
roadway, new brick paver side-
walks, drainage system piping,

area lighting and landscaping,
according to a staff report.
The bid was awarded to the
lowest bidder, Florida Roads,
Inc., for $222,203.19 plus a 10
percent contingency.
The cost of the project,
which also includes funding
for construction administra-
tion is $259,207.51 which will
be paid for with the city's
downtown tax increment
fund, according to the report.

Encourage growth of neigh-

Job sharing is a new alter-
native this school year for ele-
mentary education teachers
in Duval County public
"This is another avenue to
fill positions that work with
our teachers, home sched-
ules," said Vicki Reynolds,
chief human resource officer
for the School District.
"There are lots of teachers
who have small children and
who want to work but don't
want to work full-time.
"We looked at corporate
America where two people
share one job and thought
this could work for our teach-
Reynolds said in the former
system teachers could work
part-time, but they had no
benefits and no seniority
credit for the time they
In the new system, teachers
split salaries and sick leave
and keep their retirement and
seniority status.
This school year only one
teacher n the job share can
carry health benefits, but
Reynolds hopes to find a way
to share the health benefit in
the future.
"Most of the teachers who
have come to us so far don't
need health benefits because
their spouse has benefits or
they are already covered,"
Reynolds said.
"We would like to someday
split the benefit but we want-
ed to get it up and running
this year."
Reynolds said she had
hoped to have the program
ready for teachers to apply
last the spring but the School
District had to have the pro-
gram approved' through the
teachers union and several
other areas before being final-
ized in July.
There are currently five sets
of teachers job sharing for the
2007-08 school year and
Reynolds hopes to have 25
sets or 50 teachers in job
sharing positions this year.

Kurinsky said. '

Duval teachers trying

job-sharing this year

I think a lot of teach-
ers will be interested
in this as an option,
especially moms with
young children.
.. .... ..................................
Vicki Reynolds

Kara Permuy of the West
Beaches had planned to take
personal leave for a year to
spend time with her newborn
son, Joseph.
When she found out about
the job share' opportunity,
she .teamed with Regan
Copeland, who has a 1-year-
old son, to teach fourth grade
at Don Brewer Elementary
School off Merrill Road in
"I think a lot of teachers
will be interested in this as an
option, especially moms with
young children,", said
"The [students] are already
used to everything being
departmentalized and having
different teachers so they'll
be fine."
The job-sharing schedule is
left up to the -teachers and
principals of each school.
Teachers can split five days
a week or work set days.
Permuy and Copeland are
switching weekly schedules
so that one week Permuy
works Monday, Wednesday,
Friday and the next week she
works Tuesday and Thursday.
Reynolds said initially
teachers were responsible for
finding their job-sharing
partners, but now she is try-
ing to coordinate job-sharing
Reynolds said the School
District also plans to expand
the job-sharing option for
teachers at the middle school
and high school level in the
future, but in a county with


Daughter's room will

stay clean only so long

S someone help me figure
out how to get a 17-year-
old girl/woman/child to
clean her bedroom.
Sure, I can hear those of you
who have been through this,
including my own mother,
laughing really hard right
now. Very funny.
Here's what I came up with
so far: (1.) Asking her to do it.
(2.) Begging her to do it. (3.)
Not allowing anyone else to
see it including her friends
who have bedrooms that look
worse. (4.) Begging some
more. (5.) Cutting off the
food, clothing and phone sup-
ply until said room is habit-
So far, No. 5 seems to be
working the best, and I think
it's because the phone thing is
the lifeline to the other piggy
teenage friends who have bed-
rooms that are equally, if not
far beyond, the room that I
think is a mess.
This is the room where the
daughter occasionally sleeps,
'where she does all of her in-
home entertaining without
boys, for sure and where sev-
eral people have already
climbed in and out of the win-
dow which we now shut with
a hunk of wood when we
leave town.
Lest you think I have raised
a big slob, this young woman
looks like a movie star every
time she leaves the house.
Hair in place, clean, looking
like a department store model.
Yes, she looks good and then .
she gets into her dirty car and
drives off into the sunset, but
we will deal with the car later,
for crying out loud.
She's in there cleaning right
now because her phone is bro-
ken and I will not get her a
new one until I can open the
door of her bedroom without
losing my lunch. "This is ruin-
ing my aura; all this order is


disgusting," she just told me
with a quiver in her voice.
Well, sister, here's the bot-
tom line. It is your room and
your stuff but it is my house,
and I have to walk into the
next room because you make
me sick, and-you will be in
there for about a week straight
when you have your tonsils
out next week, and there are
visitors who will be in there
also, so really that's way
below the bottom line.
I've been a pretty good sport
all these years about letting
both my kids do their own
thing in their own space.
There are posters on the walls
that make me gag, and they
play music that I do not
understand, and there are
other items that I will not
publicly disclose sitting on
shelves that I dare not ask the
origins of.
However, I really don't think
it's wrong to shovel out a cou-
ple of times a year. The last
time I did it in the kitchen, I
found so many missing con-
tainer lids, I've decided to start
a new businesses selling them.
In about.three weeks, I'm
guessing the room will be back
to its old self junk on the
floors and bed and clothes
that do not even belong to my
daughter looking like new car-
That means I have about 14
days when I can leave her bed-
room door open, and then we
start all over again.

Matzo Ball Soup is Jewish "comfort

at Shabbat dinners and brings to mind
home and family for many Jews."
The matzo balls are very flavorful
with a unique taste, Fieldhouse said.
"And the chicken soup cures every-

Adamec and Fieldhouse prepared 200
matzo balls which were then frozen.
They will be added to the hot chicken

Beaches teams shine in football jamboree


A number of Beaches area
Pop Warner football teams
made their fall debut in last
Saturday's First Coast
Conference jamboree played at
St. Augustine High School.
The day-long event featured
20-minute games with each
offense taking the field for 10
minutes against the opposing
defense, then reversing roles.
Despite the efforts of organ-
izers, however, the tournament
fell hopelessly behind schedule
early with late afternoon and
evening games shortened to a
total of 10 minutes just to give
each team an opportunity to

The jamboree included play
in the Tiney Mites, Mitey
Mites, Jr. Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Jr.
Midget and Midget divisions.
Teams from Jacksonville
Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach
played round-robin style games
against competitors from St.
The Beaches-area teams were
all decked out in variations of
the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars
uniforms, with squads delineat-
ed by colors. For example, in
the Tiney Mites classification,
Jax Beach Teal and Jax Beach
Gold did battle on the gridiron.
Saturday's jamboree served as
an introduction to the fall sea-
son of Pop Warner football for
area teams.

Several good signs in Jags victory over Bucs

N ot enough time to trade
for a hit man to take
out the Green Bay
Packers before Thursday
night's preseason game, but
maybe Jack Del Rio doesn't
need wholesale overhaul. The
Jaguars showed the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers they're probably as
good as they're going to get
for the time being.
Beating the Bucs, 31-19, may
not prove much at this point
- with all the rinky-dinks
playing on both teams but a
few things were impressive for
the home crowd. For one item,
the Jags were taxed a mere five
yards, according to the stats
we saw.
For another, Jacksonville lost
only one of three fumbles.

a- .


Glory be, the team desert
gold star for that type of

While it's true that Tampa
Bay QBs were sacked twice and
the Jaguars suffered just one
such negative-yardage play,
gee whiz, we didn't expect per-
fection in just the second pre-
season game of the year.
We have been hoping the
Jaguars would mend their
ways this year and become a
team noted for sacking the
-... opposition time and again.
Guess we hoped Marcus
Stroud, John Henderson and
S company would do more sack-
ON ing that a grocery store clerk
on a Saturday morning.
That's an improvement we
have been dreaming of, but
we've also been dreaming of
rves a our ship coming in and that's
Snot really going to happen,
either. In fact, we've been wait-

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Bobby McCray (93) appears to have Tampa Bay Buccaneers
QB Jeff Garcia lined up for a sack, but Garcia escaped and managed to complete a pass on the
play last Saturday night. The Jaguars won, 31-19 in preseason action.

ing so long for
our ship to
come in, we've
forgotten what's
supposed to be
on it.
On our two
sacks Saturday
in Weaver
Village, we
caused the Bucs
to lose eight
whole yards.
Their one sack
deducted 14
yards from
offense. Still,
taking eight
yards (think of .
it as 24 feet to
make it sound
better) from
them was better
than none. Have
to start some-
But won't ..
quibble over lit-
tie things. Let's
look at the big
things done
right. David
Garrard had a
nifty outing,
going 11-of-14 Jaguars safe
for 129 yards Tampa Bay b
along with a Fudge scoop
touchdown tally, just to show
he can run. Not on par with
star No. 1,' Byron Leftwich,
who was 6-for-12 for 81 yards.
It was a short Leftwich pass
that fired up Maurice Jones-
Drew and set him-off on the
run of the night 38 yards to
the Buccaneers' 2-yard line.
That set Fred Taylor up for his
TD a couple of minutes later.
Even if only a two-yard
jaunt, to was a thrill to see
Fred back in action. The com-
bination of Jones-Drew and
Taylor, if only on a mini-drive,
is a pleasure to watch.
The punting fo; both teams
was about even, so the succes-
sor to former punter Chris
Hanson remains unproven.
But one thing looked nor-
mal in the kicking department;
Jacksonville's Josh Scobee
booted a field goal, this one of
19 yards, to give his team a
bigger lead in the second quar-
ter. Scooby-Do missed one in
the Miami game that would
have won it, but he appears on

ty Jamaal Fudge (42) fights to keep his balance as he's tackled by
backup QB Luke McCown in the second quarter last Saturday.
)ed up a fumble and raced 72 yards before he was brought down.

target again and that's a.
healthy sign.
Many a tilt was decided in
Jacksonville's favor in years
past off the sure foot of Mike
Hollis. When Mike's little pig-
gies went to market with mate
Hanson holding, the Jags
could almost always count on
three points. Field goals can be
just as lethal a weapon as the
forward pass.
More encouraging signs
Saturday were the touchdowns
,scored by LaBrandon Toefield
(eight yards) and Alvin
Pearman's one-yard plunge.
Pearman doubles as a fleet
return man and can be anoth-
er asset if healthy.
Toefield has been threaten-
ing to be a break-out offensive
star for four seasons, but the
threat has only occasionally
been carried out. Injuries have
hampered LaBrandon in the
pros, just as they did during
his LSU days. But this must be
the preseason for him 'to
affirm what the Jaguars saw in

him at the 2003 NFL Draft.
Pro footballers are not like
wine; they don't improve with
age. Maybe rumors of
Toefield's possible trade or the
prospect of being cut by the
Jaguars will be just the tonic
he needs. Last year he had
spells of hot and then would
be invisible for weeks.
Fans should forgive their
heroes for letting the
Buccaneers score twice in the
fourth quarter last Saturday
night. One was via a 53-yard
pass, but remember Tampa Bay
was still inithe game despite
trailing 31-7. At that point,
however, Jacksonville players
had already mentally gone to
take a bath. The Bucs obliged
by giving them one.
Let's not have that happen
in a real game, O.K.?
Del Rio will no doubt
remind his troops before the
Green Bay meeting that the
game is not over until it's over.
That's a Yogi Berra-ism we're
all familiar with.

When Sunny and Dennis
.#nm Barnard opened P.S. Fabrics in
Jacksonville Beach five years
tZs ago, they never dreamed
what a good five years it
would be for the business
itself and for the chance for
the husband-and-wife team
to see their individual talents
and creativity blossom.
"We decorated our home
when we were newlyweds
and did all the window trim-
ming ourselves and that was
23 years ago," said Sunny,
who first learned to sew in
seventh grade, whose grand-
mother sewed theatrical cos-
tume wear and whose mother
sewed all the clothes for
Sunny and her three sisters.
"It started in our own
home first in designing win-
dow treatments and then

'Can you do this for me?' and
